Upon Secretary Wlntlom Goes to New
York to Discuss Various Plans
WASIIINGTON Dee 12Special telegram
to THE HERALD J The special Senate com
rattee appointed to consider some measure
cl financial relief held their first meeting
1 j day Two of the pronounced silver men
11 lones of Nevada and Mr Plumb of
Kansas were absent In view of this fact
Ur Mitchell of Oregon asked that no bus
ness bo done until he should be reinforce
Lj their presence He explained that Mr
Plumb whom business has called to Philadelphia
delphia would be present tomorrow but
stated that Mr Jones return was very in
a unite lie requested therefore that an
other gentleman who represented the silver
idea as strongly as the Nevada Senator
s oul be appointed to fill the vacancy He
suggested the name of Mr Teller of Colo
rado a selection which was at once agreed
to The committee did nothing toaay of
practical interest they remained in session
one hour and a quarter There was a gen
t eral exchange of opinions but nothing
more The eastern men showed a dispo
sition to agree to the purchase of the I
surplus silver estimated at about thir
teen million ounces but intimated that
tins was as far as they could go
Some of them in fact said they would not
co this unless assurances were given them
that no further legisation would be asked
of Congress The silver men will not be
content with this They not only want the
surplus product absorbed but they want a
material increase in the monthly purchases
of silver a well
I asked one of their number today a
Senator who will exert a strong inlluence
at tomorrows and the subsequent meet
ings how much increase they desired He
could not say he replied but it must be
material Half a million ounces a month I
suggested More a million at least was
the serious reply I asked if that would
not be practical free coinage He nodded
Ids head approvingly and said that they
would agree t no compromise that was
ibuch short of that point
At tomorrows meeting propositions and
counterpropositions will be very plentiful
Mr Power of Montana who represents a
silver state but who is less extreme than
the majority of his Rocky mountain col
leagues will offer compromise in the form
of an amendment to the Sherman bill
which he hopes will be accepted Mr
Teller will put forward a measure so will
3ur Mitchell andpossibly several others
The eastern men are not saying much they
are waiting to see what the opposition will
be when they state their ultimatum
Senator Teller of Colorado who is with
the exception of Mr Plumb the most ad
anced silver man in the chamber told me
tonight that he had little hope the confer
ence would accomplish anything He sees
no middle ground between the ultra con
tcrvatism of the gold bugs and the free
coinage advocates I no compromise be
reached he will favor the introduction of
a free coinage bill and that too without
further delay He is beginning t believe
that continued debate on the force bill is
part of the scheme of the eastern men to
delay silver legislation He says if some
thing is not done with the bill by the firs
of next week the silver men will move
that it be laid aside and the Senate proceed
to the consideration of some of the pend
leg financial questions The Democrats
wuo H embrace any opportunity to rid
themselves even temporarily the hated
f urcc bill will gladly join with them and
their united efforts will be sufficient to ac
complish their purpose Even the pros
1 Let of a presidential veto will
not be sufficient to prevent the pas
sage of a free coinage bill The
scr men say that the exeut ve
11 ay do a he pleases I he chooses to eto
n free coinage bill he alone is responsible
they will have done their duty in passing
at and sending it to him Of course in
reaching this conclusion the western Sen
ators are counting upon concurrent action
by the House What that body would d
with a free coinage measure is problcmati
cau Last session Speaker Reed so man
aged matters as to prevent the adoption of
the free coinage amendment which cam
over from the Senate He will use his best
efforts to bring about a similar result at
this session He may again succeed but
the silver men think not
The financial situation was the subject of
an extended discussion at the cabinet meet
ing to day President Harrison and Secre
tary Windom both agreed that it would be
well t purchase the surplus silver on the
market but the generally expressed opin
ion was that the administration could en
courage no further movement in the direc
tion of silver legislation Secretary Win
dom left for New Yorh this evening to re
main until Sunday His purpose it is be
lieved is to consult with leading Wal
street men regarding tho pending string
J ency and obtain their views a to the best
plan oj relieving it

chairman of the subcommittee investigat
ing the immigration question speaking of
the investigations made on the Pacific
coast says it was shown that only 5 per
cent of the Chinese who are remanded by
the courts in San Francisco have been act
ually returned to China This is owing in
many cases to a failure to identify fugi
tives To remedy the evil of the influx of
Chinese over tho boundary between Wash
ington and the British possessions the Sen
ator believes more stringent surveillance
should be kept on the line and better meth
ods adopted to prevent them coming over
For this purpose he thinks a larger appro
priation should be made for the employ
ment of detectives and other officials to
keep closer scrutiny on the border A
large number of Chinese seek entrance into
the United States through the archipelago
in Puget sound a a convenient and com
paratively safe way of entrance and to in
tercept them successfully steam launches
should be employed The Senator believes

PRIVILEGES AND ELECTIONS
A Discussion in the Senate on Them Vest
Trips Up Dolnh Neatly on the Color
Question In Politics
BOISE CITY Ida Dec 12Special
telegram to THE HERALD The usual
opening proceedings were gone through by
the house this morning A resolution was
offered by Peoples of Shoshone county
II asking that the houso now proceed to vote
for a United States Senator for the state of
Idaho ho to hold tho full term of six years
beginning with the Fiftysecond Congress
An amendment to the above was intro
duced as follows That the house on Tues
day next proceed to elect two Senators to
the United States Senate 1
An amendment to this fixing the time for
starting voting to be just at 12 oclock on
that day was defeated the members for
the north and the Democrats vbting for it
and the members from the south against it
In the senate a resolution to proceed to
the election of the two Senators next Tues
day was introduced and adopted I is
believed the Claggott men originated the
idea of electing the one Senator for the
six year term today with the idea of rush
ing their man through as predicted last
night but the movement proved a failure
as the Dubois and Shoup men were not
willing to let anyone else have the prefer
ence but insisted on holding the election
for the two Senators together and the other
one afterward This election of three Sen
ators gives tho Dubois and Shoup men the
chance they desired I is caused by the
term for which one of the two Senators will
be elected being so short that another Sen
ator must now be elected to succeed him I
was originally intended that the gentleman
shouU succeed himself but the need of
a combination and the inability of aty two
to secure the necessary voej The scheme
of thr e consolidating s now the order
The governor realiiig the sirioasness
of his omission of mining matters from his I
message handed in today an additional

become the leadiup silver producing state
At the afternoon sesoa of the house i
the reference in regard to the election of
Senators was withdrawn and it is now a
sure thing that no vote will be taken until 1

In the Senate
WASHINGTON Dec 12A number of un
important bills were reported from com
mittees and placed on the calendar after
which Plumbs resolution fixing the hour
for dally meetings taken up I was
was agreed to after being amended by
striking out the clause for evening sessions
and making it take effect after tomorrow
The reappointment bill based on a repre
sentation of 350 members of the House of
Representatives as originally proposed bv
Frank of Missouri was favorably acted
on by the House committee on census and
it will be reported to the House today or
tomorrow
The resolution offered yesterday by
Dolph instructing the committee oh
n privi
leges and elections to inquire and report
whether the right to vote at any election I
for presidential electors members of Con
gress legislatures or officers is denied to
any American citizen of any state or is
abridged except for participation in rebel
lion or other crime was taken up Dolph
said he particularly wanted the committee
to give attention to the question whether
some states had not provided in their con
stitutions or laws such voting Qualifica
tions as were not permitted by the four
teenth amendment to the constitution
without an abridgement of congressional
representation He said the constitution
recently adopted in Mississippi did impose
such qualifications and tho representation
of that state should be abridged He sent to
the clerks desk and had read the recent
inaugural message of Governor Tillman
of South Carolina which he said was an
official declaration that the great mass of
colored men of the south fit
were not ft to
exercise the elective franchise that the
white people of the south were in control
of the state government and proposed to
maintain control at all hazard These
propositions showed clearly Dolph said
that the colored people of the south would
not be permitted to vote as long as they
voted the Republican ticket or where their
voting would secure Republican control
Vest moved an amendment instructing
the committee to inquire further
whether by any state legislation any citi
zen of the United States was denied the
right to worK on public improvements by
reason of his color He read a clause
cause
from a recent statute of the Oregon lie
poblican legislature authorizing the build
of a bridge and providing that none but
while laborers should ho employed on the
work It might be Vest said that the
provision was intended tcexclude Chinese
labor but the language of the statute ex
cluded Mongolian Indian and negro The
Democratic states had never denied the
negro the right to earn his bread by honest
labor
Dolph replied and in further discussion
in allusion Tillmans message brought
out the declaration from Buttler that he
was perfectly willing to stand by tha mes
sage Dolph said he was informed that the
Senator Butler himself had h threatened I
colored men in his employ that he would
discharge them if they voted the Repub
lican ticket
Butler replied that whoever made that
statement was guilty of a deliberate and
willful falsehood
Hoar arose and said he had made the state
ment having read it within twentyfour
hours in a public oocument in the reply of
the Senator from South Carolina before a
committee in which he baid ho had told
the colored people on his plantation that ho
should discharge them i they voted the
Republican ticket
Butler then remarked I made the re
plies of course to the Senator from Massa
chusetts
Hoar replied he was not to be deterred I
from saying what he had to say either by
the manner of Butler Tho resolution then
went over until tomorrow
The election bill was then taken up
Blodgett and Walthall spoko in opposition
to it
Hoar then referred to tho incident of the
morning again and had read the testimony
in question which was from a minority re
port which was made to the House in 1870
In it Butler is represented as saying that
he gave tickets to his colored men and told
them they had a right to vote the Republican
can ticket i they pleased that they were
free men but if they exercised that right
and juiposed taxesupon him that would de
stroy his property and prospects he should
throw himself back on the same rights he
had and see that they left his plantation
Ho intended to inform himself how they
voted The question was asked with a
view to turning them off if they voted the
Republican ticket
Butler Not for voting the Republican
ticket if they had an honest ticket but for
voting for those thievesand robbers But
ler said this testimony was garbled Ho
had never seen the report before but said
now ho had never at any time attempted to
influence a single negro on his plantation
in the exercise of the franchise
Messrs Hoar and Butler then expressed
great respect for each other and the matter
dropped Jones of Arkansas then took
the ate adjourned floor on the election bill and the Sen

The Sawtelle Murder Case

DOVER N I Dec 12 On the 16th
instant the trial of the great Sawtelle
murder case will begin I Isaac Sawtelle
is found guilty of murder in the first degree
in New Hampshire ho will be hanged He
wants to plead guilty to murder in the
second degree in Maine and thus escape
the gallows for capital punishment has
been abolished in Maine but the district
attorney will not accept that plea and the
charge of murder in the first degree in New
Hampshire will be pressed backed by the
strongest kind circumstantial evidence
The defense will be a denial that Hiram
Sawtelle is dead That the prosecution
should have succeeded in advance in forcing
this line of defense demonstrates to the
popular mind the absolute lack of faith
counsel feel in then ability to save Isaac
from the callows The governments evi
dence as regards the identification of the

despite the absence of the head considered
conclusive There is another contention

tion on which doctoirdUj free and inas
much as it is of muclf importance to tho
governments theory of the killing tho
subject will be exhaustively investigated
Tho question is How long had the victim
been dead when the head was cut from
the body It is believed that upon this
question will hinge one of the most interest

The Poor Will Feel Their Effects In theRise
in the Price of Groceries
Special to TUE HEUALB ExaminerDlspatchl
NEW YOKK Dec 12From this timo for
ward the poor will have a hard time to
supply tllemselves with groceries although
the summer has passed vegetables and
fruits are still growing in prices With
strange unanimity the retail grocers have
marked up their prices something like 20
per cent Tho only excuse they offer is
that the time for the tin plate tariff to go
into effect is approaching and they are
obliged to keep ahead of the anticipated
rise of tin cans They are sorry of course
so they say but they cannot afford to lose
money on tin cans when they can so easily
make it up on vegetables The grocers are
simply anticipating coming events The
advance in the price of all canned and dried
fruits is vastly greater than that in canned
vegetables The following are some of the
prices Dried peaches last year 12 to 13
cents today 20 to20 cents dried plums
last year 12 to 15 cents now 20 to 23 cents
dried cherries last year 20 cents today 40
cents dried apples last year 12 cents to
day 20 cents evaported apples last year 9 i
cents today Ii to 20 cents raisins last
year S to 1 cents today 0 to
10 cents tible raisins last year
20 to 23 cents today 2j to 30 cents A
great proportion of grocers say that the
increase in prices is to be attributed
directly to the effects of the McKinley bill
They also prophesy an advance of every
household article
