Rumpel V The Union Pacific
BOISE CITY Idaho March 10 Special
telegram to THE HERALD Progress in the
20000 damage railroad suit in which Mr
tvumpel sues the Union Pacific company
here for this amount is slow Plaintiffs
tested their case today and tomorrow j
Mr Lockwood the Union Pacific com
panys attorney will argue a motion to dis
miss as no case has been made out The
general feeling here is i in favor of the railroad
road company as it was evidently a pieco
of foolhardiness en Rumpels part to at
tempt to crawl through under cars that I
were switching and to which an engine I
was coupled in plain sight I is probable j
that the case will be dismissed Nobody
thinks that the jury will award damages I

A Combine to Limit Copper Production
NEW YORK March 10 Rumors of a
treat combination which i effected will
Involve millions of dollars just now is
proving a matter of prime interest to man
ufacturers and dealers in copper and hold
I ers of oopper mining stocks For months
copper prices have been very low and the
tension upon most copper mining companies
In the Lake Superior region Montana
Arizona and New Mexico to keep things
going has been severe I has long been
urged by copper men that some combina
tion to limit production should be forced
but only within a very recent time has the
matter assumed shape Negotiations have
been carried on very secretly The course
of prices however in the Boston market
bar shown things were going on favorably
A Boston dispatch received this afternoon
nays The statement is made here on
good authority the proposed combination
of copper mine properties with the excep
tion 01 the Quincy company which de
clined to join is practical effected I is
stated the annual production of the Ana
conda mine is fixed at 70000000 pounds and
the Calumet and Hecla 60000000
J B Haggin denied that it was the
Anacondas intention to add one western
mine to its plant He declined to say any
thing about the effort of the producers to
Sx a uniform price on the limit of produc
tion
J A trust would have been brought about
by any uniform price fixed by the largest
producers if a certain big company did
not desire to get control of all the
copper mines in the west said a man who
knows all about the conierences
a
which have been held between the copper
men There are big mines inArIzona and <
New Mexico as well as Montana I
one company were in control of all
I these it would be in a better position
L than at present to fix prices to
ouit itself Mining companies in
Arizona and New Mexico are not
making much money at present and are
perfectly willing to enter into any
agreement with the Anaconda company of
Montana and the Calumet and Hecla com
pany of Michigan but not willing to sol
the controlling interest of their property
to any other company and as the
Anaconda company wants to get hold of
these companies it proposes to oppose
any measure that will place these mines in
independent position It is to the Ana
condas interest to keep the price of copper
down at present so the Arizona and New
Mexico companies can more easily be
brought to terms ana for that reason the
Anaconda will not at present consent to
Sell copper at anj fixed price

HE WANTS TO KNOW

Judges First Message as mi Insult I
That is Why
HERALD BUREAU
Cor 15th and G Strets N W i
WASHINGTON D C March LlO
Judge Powers wants to know He cant
understand whv Mr Washington the
chairman of tho House committee on ter
ritories should have taken offense at his
telegram day before yesterday wherein
ho asserts by implication that Mr Wash
ington had garbled his speech before tho
House committee When Mr Washington
came to the capItol this morning ho was
headed a telegram from Judge Powers
which read as follows
SALT LAKE Utah March 9 I 1892
To Hon J E Washington Chairman House
Committee on Territories Washington
I cannot understand your indignation at my
inquiry directing attention to the emascula
tion of my argument
Signed O W POWERS
Mr Washington was justly indig
nant at the tone of Mr Powers first dis
patch Both he and every other member
I
of the committee who read the dispatch I
interpreted it to mean that in the opinion j
of Judge Powers the chairman of the com
mittee had revised Po eras argument
I
and stricken out certain parts which Mr
Powers thought vital in the proper pre
sentation of his objections to the Caine
bill In fact neither the chairman nor any
member of the committee had ever seen
Mr Powers manuscript or argument un
til after it was printed The chairman on
investigation became satisfied that while
Judge Powers in his remarks as taken
down by the stenographer alluded to the
fact that he would read extracts from a
speech which be had made on a previous
date in Utah and stated that he would afterwards
terwards file that speech with the steno
rapher failed to file the pamphlet
No record of 1 said Mr Washington
can be found bore and when a gentleman
cads extracts from printed documents in an
argument before a committee it is the cus
tom of the stenographer to havo a note of
tie fact that extracts were read and not
taken down but to receive the pamphlet afterwards
erwards and cut from it such parts as are
desired by the speaker to go in the re
marks It was Mr Powers duty to re
main here to receive his manuscript from
the stenographer revise his remarks and
punctuation and insert any such matter as
he chose to extract from his speech which
did not reflect personally upon any one who
would have no opportunity to reply before
the committee I feel satisfied that I made
this statement to Judge Powers
as I did to every gentlemen who
addressed the committee on Utah
matters Oklohoma matters and
matters affecting every other territory So
ar as I am aware every speaker from
Utah took his own manuscript and person
ally revised it and corrected the same then
handed it to the clerk to be printed I did
I
net look over any remarks made by any
speaker and did rot handle in any way the
manuscript reports of the same I regret
i the symmetry of Judge Powers argu
ments was in any way marred but I am
absolutely blameless in the matter
Mr Washington says that under the cir
cumstances ho does not think it necessary
to carry on any further correspondence
with Mr Powers over the wires and this
is the last the judge will hear from him

SAN FRANCISCO March 10Mrs Sarah
Althea SharonTerry was to day adjudged
insane and was committed to the state
asylum at Stockton The proceeding were
conducted before Judge Levy who held
court today in the larger room but even
these enlarged quarters were crowded
with spectators including many prominent
citizens Mrs Terry however did not
seem surprised or nervous at the sight of
the largo number of people but when
court opened she began weeping Mam
my Pleasant Mrs Terrys colored nurse
was the first witness examined by the i
commissioners She related various in
stances recently occurring to indicate Mrs
Terry was Insane She is constantly
talking about spirits and about Judge
Terry said Pleasant and I am afraid
she may harm herself or others
Mrs Terry here rose and asKed permis
sion to question witness which the court
finally granted She then put a long series
of interrogations to the witness which cov
ered her doings from the time when her
mental trouble first becamb apparent a
few weeks ago to the time she finally left
Mammy Pleasants house These or
similar questions were put to the other
witnesses Mrs Terry sometimes display
ing considerable clearness and humor and
at other times wandering in her question
ing or breaking into hysterical laughter
Mrs Terry was also placed upon the stand
but she talked incoherently and after an
other witness had testified to instances
where Mrs Terry had displayed irrational
symptons the court ostensibly adjourned
until2 pm In the meantime however an
order committing her to the Stocnton
asylum was signed by Judge Levy
Mrs Terry was taken away in a closed
carriage those who had been present in
the court room thronging the sidewalk to
watch her departure I is stated Mrs
Terrys insanity is duo to general debility
brought on by her nervous tension of the
past few years Some friends believe that
by quiet and asylum treatment she may
be restored to health in a few months but
others express fear she will never recover
her mind

A STORMY TIME I
Heated Debate in the Commons
on Esquimaults Deienses
Lon Hamilton Is Asked If Canada Can be
Depended on in Time of Trouble
An Uproar Knsues
LONDON March lOTbe question of tho
defenses of the harbor of Esquimault Van
couver island was raised in the ccmmons
this afternoon I was discussed with heat
by Lord George Francis Hamilton first
lord of the admiralty and several Liberal
interrogators Hardly had the breeze died
out when the Behring sea controversy was
brought before tho house by questions
addressed by Edward Temperly Gourley
Advanced Liberal member from Sunder
land and answered for the government by
James William Lowther under secretary
for the foreign office Ferguson Lioeral
member from Leith asked Lord Hamilton
Does the site of the navy yard at Esqui
mault belong to Canada or to the crown
Are any advantages secured to her
majestys vessel at Esquimault har
bor that are not accorded thorn
in the ports of the United States i
France or other civilized nations
U the garrison be put under the orders I
of the Canadian government will the
home government have any means of as
suring itself of the support of the same for
her majestys fleet in time of wad I as
suggested Canada desires to cast her lot
with the United States and become incor
porated with that country would she carry
with her the guns and other portable equip
ments of the fortifications
The interrogatories were delivered amid
a storm of exclamations and remonstrance
The last questions were put in such way
as to suggest that in times of war or
threatened war the imperial government
could not rely upon the loyalty of Canada
The impression was that the speaker in
tended to say Canada had drifted too far
toward the United States to be trusted to
operate with the mother country in case
of trouble with the United States
Lord Hamilton said The site of the
dock yards at Esquimault belongs to the
crown and the Canadian government has
received f oj her majestys ships exclusively
a portion of the harbor The Canadian
government will provide a site for the
fortifications and guns and will Do respon
sible for the manning of themThe honorable
gentlemans other questions seemed to
have been put with the object of causing
the inference that in time of trouble or
danger Canada will not be ready to coop
erate with the home government I de
cline to answer those hypothetical ques
tions which were prompted by supposi
tions at once injudicious and dangerous
Ferguson jumped to his feet asking I
beg the first of the lord admiralty answer
the query wnether in the event of Canada
separating herself from her majestys em
pire the guns stores and ammunition as
well as the fortifications will belong to
the imperial government
The house was in a hubbub when Fergu I I
son sat down and rang with cries of
Order Dont answer Lord Hamilton
made no reply I
Under Secretary Lowther in response
to the inquiries o Mr Gourley as to the I
report of the Behring sea commission s id j I
all the commissioners had signed the joint
report embodying the points on which they i I i
wore agreed as regards the protection
and preservation of the seal industry I
The points upon which no agreement

SPRINGERS POLICY
Republican Hopes of Democratic
Dissension Blasted
TURNER CHEERFULLY ACCEPTS IT
Debate ou the Tariff Heed Gets Annoyed
Clurkson Says Quays Services Can
never be Fully Appreciated
WASHINGTON March 10In tho tariff
discussion today there was a striking con
trast to the scenes which characterized the
debates on the McKinley biil two years
ago Then it was obvious whatever
measure passed the House would ba con
curred in by the Senate and signed by the
President therefore every successive step
vas bitterly contested by the Democrats
I This year the Republican minority in the
Houso is confronted with no such prob
abilities That measures reportea by the
ways and means committee will pass the
House is conceded but that none will re
ceive the sanction of the Senate is con
sidered probable by Republicans in the
House The improbability of a tariff bill
ever becoming u law naturally detracts
from the deep interest that would other
wise be manifested by the Hous in these
measures and mattes their consideration
somewhat a perfunctory proceeding
lu His opening remarks Truner blasted
whatever hopes there may have been that
disctasions would appear in tho Demo
cratic ranks as to Springers policy of sep
arate bills by stating tOut while he hud
favored a general bill he deferred to men
tor whose judgment he had the deepest
respect and would urge with all his efforts
and ability the bills now pending before
the Rouse This delicate compliment to
Chairman Springer and his colleagues from
one who was in the past such a warm udvo
cute of Mills tariff policy was warmly
appreciated by the Democratic side and
freely applauded Turner then turned his
attention to criticism of Speaker Reeds
rulings in the last Congress denying the
recent decision of the supreme court vindi
cated those rulings When Walker of
Massachusetts arose to defend the ex
speaker Turner criticised him to the mad
fest annoyance of Reed who occu
pied a seat some distance from
Turner Reed intimated to WalKer he
would reply to tto criticisms at
the proper time suggesting ho be permit
ted to do so Reed wishing to reply to the
criticism expressed toe opinion his action
was thoroughly vindicated by the decision
of thesupreme curt The question was
whether he violated his duty in counting
memoers present who were in the chamber
Never before the decision of the court had j I
an admission bten made it was a present j i
quorum and not acting quorum that the I
constution demanded
const uton
Turner replied the gentleman from
Maine Reed had occupied both sides of I
the question and had been wrong on both
sides Democratic laughter
Reed retorted he had been correct and
consistent Turner said he always had the I
highest respect for the gentleman from I
Maine He differed from him in his ad
ministration of the chair but he had no intention
ministraton
tention to offend the gentleman in his crit
icism of such administration
Reed had no doubt he said in regard to
the good will existing between the gen i
tlemen Turner and himself Continuing
Reed argued that under the constitution 1
present quorum was sufficient for tho
transaction of business The gentleman
from Georgia had seen fit to refer to the
last election How often in the history
of the world had the rignteous gone tem
porarily to tho wall Great laughter
Mr Patterson of lennessee made an
argument in support of the bill and in
veighed against the protection policy of
the Republican party which he asserted
wan detrimental to the interests of the
negro laborers of the south He de
nounced tho force bill as the most in
famous of all infamous measures
al congrat
ulating the country that the Republican
party itself was now ashamed of having
advocated i The farmers of the south
