Washington, Jan. 25.—Representative
M , irr ,;>w of California, who is chairman of
ti.o sub-committee of the House committee
foreign affairs, intends to call the sub
committee together ami get to work
ttt ‘ the earliest opportunity. Ho says
bis views on Samoan affairs are
positive and have been made known
through a resolution introduced by him
u! the°House at the last session. The statu
quo at the time the representatives of the
l uited States, Germany and England met,
he savs, must be restored, and this would
necessitate the replacement of King Malei
toa in the position from which he was so
unlustly removed bv the German agents
ami sent to the Marshall islands. This step,
Mr Morrow insisted, must be preliminary
t 0 all y further negotiatio son the subject.
Mr. Herbert, chairman of the naval com
mittee of the House, has not yet received a
response to his letter to Secretary Whitney
inviting suggestions as to any amendments
that may in his judgment be necessary to
meet any emergency that may arise as the
result of the Samoan affair, ft is apparent
that the members of the committee are en
tirely willing to comply with any reason
able "request of the navy department in this
respect. The committee in is report

contractors for supplying gun forgings and
armor-plate for the navy, expect to begin
deliveries in March next, although they are

contracts before February, 1890, and there

London, Jan. 25.—Lord Salisbury had a
long interview to-day with Count von
Haifield, the German ambassador. The
former is indisposed. Germany’s views on
the Samoan muddle and Zanzibar question
causes distrust in admiralty circles and
mysterious silence is maintained regarding
her aval reinforcements. It is stated at
the foreign office that America means busi
ness and that the American naval officers
in Samoa express confidence in their ability
to hold their own.
Berlin, Jan. 25.—The National Zeitung ,
referring to the action of the senatorial
committee at Washington on the Samoa
affair, says that measures for the protection
of the autonomy of the Samoan Islands are
superfluous, because it is not threatened by
any one. The sole interest of America con
sists in not allowing her good relations with
Germany to be jeopardized by a few iu
triguiu? adventurers.
Thu Vostische Zeitung, in reviewing the
article in the Cologne Gazette of yesterday,
holds that it would be a mistake to attach
no importance to the measures taken by
President Cleveland, merely because he is
to be sin rlly succeeded by Gen. Harrison.
It points out that the authority for dealing
with foreign affairs rusts with the Ameri
can Senate, and warns the semi-official
press that it would bo unwise to try and ap
pease the German public with “lailacious

An Outbreak Among the Laborers Apt
to Occur at Any Moment.
Washington, Jan. 25.—Dispatches were
received at the state department to-day
from the U nited States consul general at
Aspinwall, dated Jan. 15. He says that on
Jan. 14 the canal contractor at Culebra re
duced the wags of the laborers to $1 20 in
debased coin—about SO cents in American
gold—whereupon the men, mostly negroes,
refused to work and fold the police that
they would rob for a living. In the efforts
of tho police to quell the disturbance re
volvers were used, and a serious riot seemed
imminent, but at the time of the consul
general's writing the arrival of soldiers had
a pacifying effect and quiet was restored.
the situation at colon.
A dispatch was received from the United
States consul at Colon, dated Jan. 13, in
wtiichit is stated that there are 10,009
workmen employed along the line of the
canal, and fully twice that number of
hansers-on, all of the very cum of the
earth. The air there was filled with ru
mors as to the disposal of tho canal problem,
out the informants said that the reports
from foreign governments, and the news in
tho pro -s of the is! hmus was at times so
conflicting that it was impossible to obtain
any correct impressions of tho probabili
There wns, at the time of writing, the
French man-of-war Poland lying iu the
harbor at Colon, a cruiser of the first class,
heavily armed and armored. There was a
small English war vessel, tho Lilv, there.
It is thought at the department that the
Ossipee, which sailed from Jamaica Jan.
21, has by this time reached Colon.
Paris, Jan. 25. —Two manifestos will be
presented at the meeting of tho Panama
canal shareholders announced for to-mor
row. One is signed bv the temporary ad
ministrators, and will detail the negotia
tions which have resulted in the formation
of anew company. The other is signed by
Count do Lesseps, and expresses
the shareholders’ profound gratitude to the
administrators for preventing tho collapse
of tho work and aunoun es the intention of
the new company. It states that tho chief
engineer has estimate 1 that the total outlay
stiff necessary to complete the canal is
450,000,000 francs.
The House Adopts Several Amend
ments to the Bill.
Washington, Jan. 25. —The House went
into committee of the whole, with Mr.
Dockery of Missouri in the chair, on the
sundry civil appropriation biff.
The pe ding paragraph w-as that provid
ing that the royalty used for the use of
steam pl ite presses in the bureau of engrav
ing and printing shall be 1 cent per 1,000
impressions. The amendment offered by
Mr. White of Now York, fixing tho roy
alty at $1 (the royalty paid under the ex
isting contract) was defeated without
The amendment offered by Mr. Long of
Massachusetts, fixing the royalty at 50
cents, was lost by a vote of 81 to 85.
The amendment offered by Mr. Farquhar
of New York providing that no part of the
appropriation made by the bill shall be used
for the repair or construction of steam plate
printing presses was agreed to by a vote of
46 to 41.
Mr. Randall offered an amendment pro
viding that unless the patentee of steam
presses shall accept the SSOO already paid as
a royalty on each pres3 and tho rate per
thousand sheets herein provided (1 cent),
the presses shall not be used by tho gov
ernment after the close of the nresent fiscal
year. This amendment was adopted.
On motion of Mr. Outhwaite of Ohio an
amendment was adopte 1 providing that tho
name of every person whose portrait is
printed on government securities shall be
printed under the portrait.
Tho appropriation for repairs to light
houses was increased $35,000; that for tho
sa aries of lighthouse keepers $25,000, and

the committee rose and the House, at 4 ;45
o’clock, took a recess until 7:30 o’clock, tho
evening session to be for the consideration
of private pension biffs.
The Virginia Delegation Goes Home
Full of Hope.
Washington, Jan. 35.—Representative
elect Venable of Virgiuia was at the capitol
to-day in company with a delegation of
Virginia farmers and tobacco-growers, sent
here to further the passage of the Cowles
internal revenue bill. Tho delegation con
templated appearing formally before the
appropriations committee (which has charge
of the Cowles bill), but Chairman
Randa'l, while welcoming them cord.ally
and expressing the willingness of the mem
bers of the committee to hear, as members
of the House, anything they might wish to
say, intimated that the committee, as a
body, did not care to enter into any formal
hearings regarding it as hardly proper to
do so.
While making r.o promises, he freely re
iterated his well known v.ows touching tlie
propriety of a; olishiog the tobacco tar, and
tho delegation, which left for home to-day,
went away under the conviction that if the
wavs and means committee and > not report a
measure of relief for the tobacco growers
the appropriations committee will do so,
and that tho bill will pass the House by a
largo majority when it comes before that
body. The members of the delegation were
particularly eloquent this morning in de
lecting the hardships from which the to
bacco growers of Virginia and neighbor
ing states suffer as a result of the enforce
ment of the internal revenue laws.
Money for the Army.
Washington. Jan. 25. —In t he House to
day, Mr. Townshend of Illinois, from the
committee on military affairs, reported the
army appropriation* bill, and it was
placed upon the calendar.
He also reported tho bill to establish a
national military and naval mu oum in
Waihington. It was referred to the com
mittee of tho w uo> ■.
In the .Senate to-dav the military neademv
appropriation bill was taken up, amended
and passed.
The bill provides for an aggregate appro
priation < f 121,466,415, whicn is $4,Ss5 .o s
than tho appropriation for the current
y. ar. The estimates were |21,9?0.355, ex
clusive of a provision for sea oast defenses.
The bill follows very closely that passed last
year. _______________
Private Pension Bills.
Washington, Jan. 25.—The Senate late
this afternoon proceeded to the considera
tion of the private pen-ion bills on the cal
endar. Among the thirty bills passed was
one (a Senate bill) lncrea lng the pension of
the widow of G.-n. Rousseau to 1100 a
month. , _
After a br let executive session the Sen
ate, at 4:45 o’cl ok, adjourned till Monday.
At its evening session, the House pa*ed
twenty-nine pension bills, and at 10 o’clock
adjourned until to-morrow.
The House Tariff Reformers Won’t Be
Fooled, However, and the Bill Will
Go to the Ways and Means Commit
tee—lt Will Be Speedily Considered
and Non-Concurrence Recom
Washington, Jan. 25. —1n the Senate
to-day Mr. Allison moved that tho Senate
insist on its amendment to the tariff bill,
and ask for a conference with tho House on
the hill and amendment. The motion
was agreed to without objection.
Before the tariff bill went to the House
from the Senate this afternoon there was
indorsed on it, in compliance with a motion
of Mr. Allison adopted by the Senate, a
statement that the Senate adhere to its
amendments and request a conference.
This is an unusual but not unprecedented
courso to pursue, and is aff pted for the
purpose of expediting the consideration of
the hill.
This action of the Seriate caused mild
commotion among the interested members
of the House when it was made known to
them. The impro sion in some quarters
was that tho Senate had v ry cleverly
trapped the ways and means committee. It
would bo out of the ordinary course
for the House to refu-e to accede
to the request of the Senate for
a conference, yet if tins request is
granted the result will bo to prevent tho
ways and means committee from passing
upon the Seriate amendments to the tariff
bill. Again it is argued tlratJif the Hou-e
should refuse to comply, this refusal would
put it in the position oil declining to second
the efforts of the S mate to secure speedy
act.on upon the tariff bill.
Several members of tho ways anil means
committee, when spoken to about the mat
ter, expressed a belief that tho request for
a conference would not be granted until the
bill hail gone through the regular course iu
the House and the committee.
Mr. Breckinridge of Kentucky said the
rules of the House require aff bills coming
back with Senate amendments to be re
ferred to the proper committee. The tariff
biff could not be sent to conference in
violation of this rule, for a single objection
would suffice to prevent it. He ag 1 eed with
other members of the commit ee in the
opinion that the Senate’s request for an im
mediate conference would be refused.
To-morrow Speaker Carlisle will, in due
course of routine, refer the Senate substi
tute for the Mills bill to the ways and means
committee. The ways and means commit
tee will send it at once to the public printer
to be printed. As there are 40,000 words in
it, it will hardly be ready for committee
purposes before the middle of next week. As
soon as it is in print the committee will
proceed to consider it item by item, sitti g
if necessary every day for that purpose.
Some report will bo made ou it as promptly
as possible. This is all that the democrats
of the ways and means committee have de
termined on.
to favor non-concurrence.
Speaker Carlisle and Chairman Mills said
to-day that the committee would probably
report, as tho Senate has anticipated they
would, in fav rof non-concurrence in the
Senate substitute, or, in other words, in
favor of standing steadfastly by the Mills
bill. Other tariff reformei s think that some
agreement may be reached on some feature;
of tho substitute. Said one of them to-day:
“IVe really do not know the
merits of the details of the
Senate substitute. Wo shall have to con
sider it carefully before we can say how we
will act.” But all agreed that there was
nothing in the report that the majority of
the ways and means committee had agreed
upon a substitute for the whole bill, or even
had agreed upon reporting any substitute.
The chances are that what the speaker and
the chairman of the ways and means com
mittee predict will prove true. However,
it is all uncertain yet.
One thing seems certain and that is that
tho Cowles internal revenue bill is not
likely to be reported by tho committee on
a; propriations. There are not enough dem
ocratic members of the committee favora
ble to it to repor it without republican votes
and tho republicans are restrained by the
dawning consciousness that the democrats
and not the republicans will be helned in
Virgiuia and North Carolina by legislation
of the fort which may pass the present
House. Meanwhile James D. Weeks has
prepared anew tariff and internal revenue
bill, a modification of the Senate
substitute without the tariff com
mission feature, which Mr. Randall
may or may not offer in I eu of the Son ate
aud Mills biffs. No one thinks revenue re
duction iu any form probable at thissossion,
though some still think it possible. But all
four tariff parties in the House are eyeing
each other closely and figuring for position.
Borne republicans talk to-night of trying
to fores immediate action by the House to
morrow on the Senate substitute for the
Mi.h bill. Thoy claim that a motion to
concur or non-concur take-, precedence of
a motion to refer, but Mr. Carlisle proposes
to refer tho substitute and the Mills bill to
tho ways and means committee.

An English Missionary and Sixteen of
His Followers the Victims.
Zanzibar, Jan. 25. —An English mis
sionary named Brooks, and sixteen of his
followers were murdered Saturday near
Saadani, by members of the coast tribes
and natives of Zanzibar. Those murder,
indicate the extent of the hatred to the
whites the Germans have aroused. Saadani
for many yoarar has been tho starting point
of European missions, the natives welcom
ing the missiorfar os and asdstirig all of
them, especially the English. The murders
have caused a se satiou. Tho question as
to the measures England will take to punish
the murderers is eagerly discussed here.
London, Jan. 26, sa. m.—A dispatch to
the Times from Zanzibar says: “Grave
pecuniary embarrassment is reported to be
impending for the Sultan of Zanzibar.
Facts have leaked out which indicate that,
his treatment, at the hands of the German
East Africa Compuny is nbs ilutely unpar
alleled. Since the treginning of its
operations it is stated that the
Suita direct cash loss has been over
450,000 rupees and his constructive loss t n
times that a nount. The company exacted
the payment of every penny to which it
would bo entitled if in prosperous working
order. In addition to the value of tho losses
it sustained at Kilwai and elsewhere, the
sultan is compelled to pay monthly nearly
150,000 rupees to recoup the company for
the cost of theoretical administration,
which has been practically aban
doned since September, and the company
has made n < repayments to any officials or
soldiers on the coast, except at one place.
The company has thus driven a vast b sly
of malcontents into the insurgent ranks,
hating the suitan arid eorni any alike as re
sponsible for their destitution, and it lias
entirely destroyed the sultan’s power. It is
rumored that the sultan has repeatedly re
monstrated with the Gorman consul on
Germany’s want of succ-ss. In an open
durbar, recontlv, tho sultan stated that he
had received only 5,000, instead of the cus
tomary 80,000, rupees in December for tho
revenue of the German littoral.

Indianapolis, Jan. 25. —Joseph A. Moore,

have been begun against him. He is resting
in seclusion in the city and positively re

For two or throe years I did nothing at all,

always considered that I was in

it was in an attempt to do this that iny

had loaned great stuns of money for the

property fell back into onr hands. It liad
depreciated greatly in value and wa* run

more or less in fault at having placed loans
so badly, though in reality I did tho best I
could. I was extremely sensitive ou this
point, I saw tho company losing thousands
of dollars on investments that had
been made upon my judgment.
Many a tim- I felt as though I should lo.e
my mind. I was beset ou every side, and
felt bound to do something to relievo myself,
and yet there was nothiiur I could do. At
this point I went to New York and began
to speculate in stocks. I had fair success,
too, and made gome money, but whenever I
came hack here I lost my head and every
thing went wrong.”
Mooro declined to say how much ho had
lost in stock speculation. It is obvious that
his irregularities with the company have
existed for years, yet nothing had been
done on the [rtrl of i be company until Jan.
I this year. It is current report that Col.
Green, the president of the company, has
known for more than a year that Moore
was embarrassed, if not a defaulter,
and it is asserted (though
the secretary of tho company
denies that statement) that the vice presi
dent of tho cjmpany, John M. Taylor, as
sorted to thegonoral officers of the company
years ago that Moore’s accounts could not
be tight and that something was radically
wrong. It is believed by these that the de
falcation amounted to $500,000 two or three
years ago, and that now, together with
shortages in other departments of his busi
ness, they will reach $750,01)0, if not more.

New York, Jnu. 25.—R. G. Dun & C >.’s
review of trade for the week says: The
state of trade is unusually perplexing, for
with general complaint of dullness there
aro evidences that the volume of transac
tions is largo. The payments through hanks
last week were 25 pr cent, largor than for
the corresponding week last year at New
York and 111 per cent, largor at all othor
cities and while speculation in stocks and
products accounts for much of this increase
and another part is but the roll iction
of heavy business dons last fall, gains ap

the result of business since tho now Year
began, a id this is not, wholly explained by
the stoadil v declining prices of products. The
reports from commercial centers are far

Much of tho existing disappointment Is

In tho great iron industry the consump
tion for all other than railroad purposes
appears to be larger than ever, but there is
serious disturbance because fully a third of
tho former enormous demand for rails has
ceased. In consequence tho Iron A f/ re
ports a “general weakening" which “there
is no use in blinking at,” and holds
that, furnaces which cannot face without
serious loss a decline of fully 1 1 from pres
ent prices may wisely su-pend produc ion.
At western points southern iron is offered
at prices equivalent to 1 12 at Birmingham,
winch is considered equal to 117 for Penn
sylvania iron, and large sales are reported
at prices below the published quota’ions.
Last year the deliveries of rails were but
1,200,000 tons, about 60 per cent, of the ca
pacity of the works. Bar iron is weak, but
tho report that the steel beam c unbinction
has broken is contradicted.
A docine in prioo of coke is considered
probable, and the anthracite coal market
continues weak.
The decline in wheat continues; prices
have fallen 2% cents for the week. The

rather absurd in the light of subsequent
events, but at the prices roacheil this wook,

Corn has fallen 1 cent aud oats are a

Pork products have also declined; mess
about 50 cents, lard 20 and hogs 10 cents.
Cotton is a shade lower, with sales of
421,000 bales, and e ITee % of a cent higher,

Gushes of Gas and Water and a Sul

Denver, Col, Jan. 25.—Information
just received from Routt, Col., states that
that portion of the state has been treated to
a genuine earthquake. The shocks com
menced on the afternoon of Jan. 15, and all
4 o’clock there wero violent ones which
rocked small buildings, detached masses o|
rocks from the mountains, and greatly
frightened people and animals.
The cattle were especially terrorized and
ran frantically back and forth. Thunder
preceded the shocks, but there was no ram.
A peculiar phenomenon was observed at
Hot springs, below the government bridge.
The shock was productive of great gushes
of water and gas.
Fully throe times as much water as gas
wits thrown out, and accompanying it was
a sulphur >us stench that made people sick
ad caused birds to drop to the ground.
