IN THE SENATE Putting in Time Debating the Bail road Debts WASHINGTON, July 19.—The senate, after assembling, went into executive session for over two hours, and on re opening the doors the conference report on the general deficiency bill was agreed to. Harris' resolution in regard to the Union Pacific railway was taken up, and Morgan (Democrat of Alabama) continued'his speech on the subject. He read a letter from a correspondent say ing that In the manipulations of stock the large shareholders had been pro tected, while the smaller holders had been frozen out. This was about to be done again. He hoped the president would: defer action, in order to enable congress to look into the matter. Harris of Kansas hoped a vote would soon be had. Thurston gave notice of Intention to discuss the subject In the future. Stewart of Nevada then took the floor. He reviewed'the history of the construc tion of the road, contending that It was a patriotic effort and not a scheme to rob the government. Harris, in refutation of this, called at tention to President Cleveland's stric tures upon Union Pacific management in his message of January, 1888. Stewart said he did not wish to ex onerate the company from payment of Just dues to the government, but ob jected to their being regarded: as crimi nals. He desired to have the whole mat ter closed. The resolution under con sideration would accomplish no pur pose. Thurston of Nebraska spoke in oppo sition to the resolution. He contended that the government had already risked enough money in the investment, and that without further expenditure it should proceed by the ordinary legal methods through the courts of thecoun try to enforce its legal rights, whatever they might be, and to secure repayment of all its dues on whatever property the courts shall find are justly subject there to. The proposition before the senate, ho said, stripped of technicalities, was . simply to invest another $34,000,000 and take the chance of getting it back on the ultimate sale of the road. 'At 5 o'clock an executive session was held and then adjournment was had.

In speaking of the standing of California fruit in the English markets, Mr. Ashburne said: "In our country the fruit is well liked and always In great demand. Thus far we have only handled canned and pack ed fruits. The refrigerator cars have been tried and to. some extent have prayed successful.

PITTSBURG, ra., July 19.—The strike leaders are maintaining the greatest se crecy regarding their movements, but it Is believed they contemplate calling on the railway organizations for assist ance. Secretary Warner gave out infor mation today that a meeting of railroad employes was held yesterday, at which the situation of the miners' strike was thoroughly discussed. Resolutions were adopted pledging support to the strikers, and each member was assessed $2 for the strike fund. Mr. Warner refused to divulge the name of the railroad em ploying the men, stating that it might lead to an Investigation an dthe dis charge of the men. From another source it was reported lo be a meeting of the conductors and brakemcn of the roadscentering in Pitts burg. It was not claimed that the action taken was at the suggestion of the Rail way Trainmen's' union. Active work has been commenced in the coke region and efforts will be made to bring out all the men at mines where the product is being supplied to Pitts burg.

Va., July 19.—Today was Debs day at Fail-mount, and it was the biggest day in the history of the town. People came from all the country around and jammed the courthouse and streets for blocks, but they came out of curiosity and not for sympathy with the strikers. This was shown by the fact that the Pritchard miners, who have been out, after hearing the speech, met and voted to return to work tomorrow. Tonight Debs gave It as his opinion that the region would be closed by Thursday, but the operatorssay the men now striking will be back at work by that time unless the agitators get out the men at work tomorrow. Debs was very cool and moderate in his talk and offended no one. All the men at Elkhorn and Thacker went to work today and Pocahontas and Flat Top miners voted to stay at work. There are only about SOO of the 4000 men who struck Saturday idle today, and this number is likely to diminish. On. the Ohio side everything is quiet. The reports that spikes had been driven Into the switches on the Wheeling and Lake Erie to derail trains at Dillonvat-: is untrue.

NOT THE AIRSHIP Arctic Residents Puzzled by a Big Balloon VICTORIA, B. C, July 19.—Just about a year ago a great balloon-shaped body powerfully illuminated, was reported from the northern Interior of British Columbia by Indians who had no pos sible means of communication with others before making their almost sim ultaneous reports to the Inellan agents but who claimed to have seen It at points not too far distant to make it probable that it was the same object both had seen. The Indian.:' had all been warned to look out for Prof. Andre's balloon and they supposed it was this balloon that they were reporting. The fact that they had received this warning caused the skeptical to aver that the Indians' Imag inations had been at work and that there was no balloon or other aerial visitor about. Now a similar report comes from an other source. W. P. Fitzge raid, c in- Ployed at Ihe Wadhams cannery at Riv ers Inlet, wf-ltes that while fishing for salmon with a partner about 2:40 o'clock on the morning of July 10th. they saw a strange light in the sky, seemingly at tached to a monster balloon! They watched it until an hour after daylight when it disappeared.' Neit knowing that Andree had not yet ascended they thought that it was his balloon that they saw.

FADED AND GONE Death of the Lady Who Inspired Thomas Moore NEW YORK, July 19.—Mrs. Ame-lla Kohler is dead 1 at Mour.it Vernon. Had It not been for Mrs. Kohler. Tom' Moore might never have written "The Last Rose of Bummer." The poem was'of her suggestion ar.d the first line was from, her lips-. She' was, early in the century, a close friend ot Moore's sister and kept a private school In London. While walking in the garden of the school one day Mrs. Kohler, so the story goes, plucked a rose, remarking: "'Tis' the last rose of summer; why not write about it. Dr. Moore?" The incident suggested tire thoughts that were afterward so beautifuly wov en into verse, and the poem was dedi cated by the poet to "Amelia," which is Mrs. Kuhler's' first name. \ Mrs. Kohler was 92 years old when she died, and for twenty years had lived with hier daughter, Mrs. F. M. Saunders, at Mount Vernon. Her maiden name was Amelia Offergeld, and her father was an officer under General Biuche-r. The family home was at Aix la Cha.pelle. Mn=.

CROCKER'S WILL WILL BE OPENED AFTER THE FUNERAL Tho Railroad Magnate's Estate Will Aggregate Seven Millions and Possibly Very Much More SAN FRANCISCO. July 19.—The future management of the Crocket estate made necessary by the death of Col. Fred Crocker, First Vice- President of the SotttherU Pacific Com pany, which occurred Saturday night, is expected to devolve largely upon George- Crocker, but those who are in the best position to judge consider that some one outside the Crocker family will succeed to the office of First Vice-President of the big railroad corporation. It is ru mored that General Hubbard of New York may he offered the position if he. can arrange matters so that he can take up his residence in San rancisco, which he would necessarily have to do. Col. Crocker's will is locked in his private vault at the Crocker-Woolworth Hank and there It will remain until after th>: funeral, when It will be opened. The members of the family decline to discus.-, it at present, and Col. Crocker's lawyers do not feel at liberty to reveal its con tents. VALUE OF THE ESTATE Colonel Charles Frederick Crocker left an estate, says- the San Francisco Ex aminer, which is valued at not less than $7,000,000. In all probability the estate Is considerably larger. The administrators of the estate will look for It In two direc tions —the property which he held in his own name, and the property which stood in the family name. The former was com paratively limited. The great bulk of his w-palth was represented by his interest in the private corporation known as the Crocker Estate Company, one of the first corporations of Its kind to be formed in this city. In this estate company by far the greater part of the vast properties of Charles Crocker, one of the original three partners in the railroad, has been conserved for the benefit of his heirs. Ever, with Ihis knowledge now, no: even those who have the handling of the affairs of the company can give more than an approximate estimate of the value of the estate left by the oldest son of the first Charles Crocker. This esti mate, as stated, is probably $7,000,000 and may be over $5,000,000. Conservative business men would fix the value of the estate at $8,000,000 or more. The separate real estate owned by C. F. Crocker was small. The old home, his town house, on the southwest corner of Pine and Leavenworth streets, may be worth $75,000, and his newly pur chased country home, "Uplands," in San Mateo county, cost $130,000. Besides this there was his personal property, jewelry, plate, etc., for which last year he paid taxes on a valuation of $13,725. It may be that all told his separate property amounts to $250,000. The balance of the estate, rising high in the millions, is represented by the in terest he held in the Crocker Estate Com pany, the company's holdings being not worth less than $25,000,000. The in terest of the estate of C. F. Crocker Is one-fourth and so his estate —the interest of the Crocker estate and his separate property together—amounts to aJaout $7,000,000, with the proviso, however, that it may be much more. OFF FOR EUROPE The Bradburys Hope Soon to Be Forgotten NEW YORK, July 19.—John Brad bury, the Los Angeles millionaire, and his wife, Lucy Bradbury, who became reconciled to each other in Chicago a few day? ago, arrived at the Grand Cen tral station here early this evening. The Bradburys remained in their private compartment on the train during the en tire trip from Chicago. They seemed to be happy when they alighted from the train. Col. Bradbury said that the journey from- Chacago was most delightful anel referring to the reconciliation with his wife, said: "Yes, we are reconciled. We shall stay in New York a few days and then we shall journey to Europe. We have no definite plans as'yet. In fact we have ncrt discussed the matter very much on our way from Chicago here. I do not care to give my address in New York, It is possible that Mrs. Bradbury and my self will go to some seaside resort be fore we go abroad. Now, that Is all I have to say." Before getting Into his carriage Mr. Bradbury added that it was his belief that W. Russell Ward had exerted an undue Influence over his wife and that she would never have done what she did had it not been for his spell over her. "I am positive of this," he said. He further vouchsafed the opinion that the whole matter would be soon forgot ten and said that Mrs. Bradbury was Sincerely Barry for her act and attributed it to the powerful and dangerous con trol Ward had acquired over her.

CALIFORNIA OPINION The Outrageous Tariff Bill It is not a "free trader," but an old time Republican protectionist who character izes the senate tariff bill as "the most outrageous one ever given to the people of this country."

The Bicycle's Moral Influence The wheel is affording a wholesome outlet for energies that would otherwise be wasted In- frivolity or actual dissipa tion, and in elevating the physical is also raising the moral tone of the youth of our land. The half-grown boy who formeily thought it manly to fuddle hi? brain with liquor or weaken his heart with tobacco hECS- changed his Ideal to the not very lofty but certainly more Innocent one of maintaining a reputa tion for speed or endurance, and while in training he proudly forgoes badi hab its that he would be ashamed to abandon as a mere matter of principle. Tr,3 use of strong liquors among the class of young men from whom cyclists are largely drawn Is on the wane, and ever, "soft drinks" are used with increasing discretion.
