Secret Sessions Revealed by ths Members
Themt olvcs as Soon ns Thoy Get an Op
portunity Entirely Too Much Talking
Iudnlgod in and They Have Concluded
Washington, March 29. At no timo
In the year has there been such secrecy
thrown about the executive sessions of
the senate as that observed last week.
It is due in part to tho irritation of tho
senators over seeing their proceedings in
secret session elaborately presented in
the newspapers, and in part to tho
patriotic desire on their part to handlo
this grave question in such a way that
ill-tempered remarks by tail-twisting
senators might not lead to inflaming tho
public mind in this country and giving
the officials of Great Britain an unduo
nformation concerning our contem
The senators expressed much satis
faction as to the effective embargo they
have placed upon the news of the secret
session. In doing this, however, they
impeached the veracity of the senato
officers. These officers are sworn not to
divulge the secrets of executive session.
In one way or another, however, the
sessions have always been the common
property of the newspapers, and if the
truth were known it would show that
about eighty-eight members of the sen
ato had been in the habit of furnishing
parts which went to make up the whole
of the published information on execu
tive sessions. But the senators now
shield themsolves and accuse their em
ployes. They cite the fact that tho
secret session of Thursday last was in
truth secret and, failed to be in any
way reported in tho newspapers tho
next morning, and account for this by
tho expulsion of the senate officials.
The senate of the United States de
creed, so far as it could, that the coun
try should remain in ignorance concern
ing tho oxact status of the Behring sea
controversy. This was the deliberate
determination of the senato, and if the
country learns as to the condition of the
subject it will be in spite of the eighty
eight senators, and in spite of the most
heroic efforts toward secrecy which are
almost unparalleled in tho history of the
Benate. Naturally these unusual pre
cautions to prevent the public from be
ing informed have in a measure been
successful. It has resulted, too, in what
might have been expected, a profusion
of sensational and extravagant reports
of what the senators did and did not do,
and of various radical step scarcely
short of an actual declaration of war
against Great Britain.
Notwithstanding the senate's embargo
on news, it is being accepted as a fact
that the secret spssion of tho senate on
Friday resulted in the agreement to con
firm the treaty of arbitration with the
important proviso that Great Britain
should consent to a continuance of the
modus vivendi. It is understood that
this agreement merely lacks the f orm
ality of a recorded vote by the senators
as the expressions showed littlo division
of opinion upon the merits of this propo
sition. After the conclusion of the secret ses
sion, one of the most conservative sena
tors said to your correspondent:
"I am of course not at liberty to Btato
what took place at the executive session,
but I will tell you as an expression of
my own opinion, based upon all the in
formation before mo up to the present
moment that I think an amicable ad
justment of the difficulty will bo se
cured, and I do not think it a breach of
confidence to say further that it is the
general opinion amSug my colleagues in
the senate. There is littlo or no senti
ment among them that hostilities will
result, and although they all approve
the firm stand takes by President Harri
son, their approval is not due to any
idea of precipitating actual hostilities,
rut merely that it is a firmness which
will compel the recognition of a just de
mand." THE WEDDING DID NOT TAKE PLACE.
Sad Termination of an Kiopement in
Corpus Chhisti, Tex., March 29. A
sad termination of an elopement is re
ported from Hidalgo county. On Fri
day two rangers were riding along a
road there when they camo upon two
Mexicans riding the same horse. Tho
rangers called on them to stop, but the
Mexican riding in front unswered I will
die first, and drawing a revolver fired at
tho rangers. They answored .the fire
and tho man fell shot through the body.
The Mexican riding behind sprang
from the horse, and kneeling beside the
prostrate form of tho dying man raised
his head and began sobbing and begging
him to live. Then it was perceived that
the uninjured Mexican was a young
woman iumalo atthe. The dead man
was her lovor. The parents of the
young woman disapproved, of her choice
and the couple were on their way to
find a priest when the final encounter
occurred. They mistook the rangers
for friends of the girl's parents coming
to take her back, and she had appealed
to her lover to protect her.

He succeeded in getting a large follow
ing of women and a fow of the most
arrant malo sinners of the town. The
women wore particularly attentive to
the Rev. Mr. Jones, and by and by the
jealousies of the husbands became
aroused. The result was an attempt to
drive tho "Bishop" from the town. But
he would not be driven. In spito of bittei
persecution he held his ground. The
feeling against him increased among
the malo portion of the town, while the
women came to his support and pro
vided him with plenty of funds.
The affair culminated Thursday even
ing. Service was being held in the
"Holy Temple" and the minister waa
delivering himself of an eloquent ser
mon. Suddenly tho muzzle of a gun
waa thrust threw a window and was in
stantly discharged. Immediately all
the lights in the Temple went out. A
panic ensuod from the flock. Women

to meet the fato of tho preacher. A
lixht was secured and, when the min
ister was fuind, ho was dead, having
been shot thiough tho breast. A re

Chester, Pa., March. 29. The jury
in the poisoning case of the two boys
Lewis and Frank Mooro reached a ver
dict yesterday evening. Dr. Harry
Stoever, who conducted a chemical
analysis of tho bodies, testified that ho
found no poison, but the evidences of ir
ritation and inflammation were so plain
that it was his opinion that the boys had
died of a local poison, most of which had
been eliminated or ejected from tho sys
tem. Other testimony corroborative of
poison was given, when a verdict of
"death was caused by poison of some
kind administered in some manner un
known to the jury," was returned.

England's Warspite the Most Formid

Best "War Vessel.
Washington, March 29. Much spec
ulation is indulged in by naval officers
respecting the possibilities of a conflict
in Behring sea. The vessels of the
United States navy that can be put into
those waters within a reasonable time
have already been named in these dis
patches. England has now three men-of-war
in the North Pacific, and it
would take her but n few weeks at most
to rendezvous her Chinese, Japanese and
Australian squadrons in those waters.
Only one of the three vessels now
there is regarded as formidable by our
naval men, but she is so largo that our
heaviest cruiser would be but a pleasure
craft alongside of her, and England
owns a dozen just such men-of-war
within easy distance of tho thoater of
possible hostilities. The Warspito is
the name Of the dreaded vessel, tho
flagship of the British Pacific squadron,
and is heavily armored with the most
recent plate. She has a displacement
of 8,400 tons, while our largest man-of-war
has but 4,500. She was built in
Chatham, England, in 1880, and was re
fitted a year ago. Her horse power is
10,000 and her speed over a given mile
was ld.75 knots per hour, but her
nominal speed is about 15. She will
average 2.05 pounds of coal per horse
power in each hour, but can carry 1,130
tons of coal, and it will take her 7,000
miles without recoaling. Her combined
length is 315 feet with 02 foot beam,
and the immense draught of 27.4 feet.
She is armed with four 22 ton guns, six
6-inch guns, eight rapid-fire and ten
Gatlinsr or Hotcnkiss iruns, and has two
torpedo tubes and four carriages for
tne purpose or expiouing me w nueneau
torpedoes. She is beyond doubt the
best equipped man-of-war in tho matter

A commander in the navy said that
the Warspite could, as he expressed it,
"Lick any three ships we had all at
once, nnd not have much of a fight
The other two vessels in tho squadron,
the Champion and Melnomeno. however,
would be easy prey for our ships, as
they are unarmored. The latter is umf
ot steel but not thick enough to with
stand the big guns of the Baltimore or
New York. She is rated as a third-class
cruiser with a displacement of 2,910
tons, 0,000 horse power, and an average
sneed of about fifteen knots nor hour.
Her draught is seventeen feet and her
steaming radius is 8,UUU miles. she is
205 feet long and has a beam of 41 feet.
Her guns consist of six 0-inch bieech
loadmg rifles weighing five tons each,
ton rapid-firing and three Hotchkis'
guns. The batteries of the Melpomene
and Yorktown aro almost identical.
Tho Baltimore would give the Warspite
the hardest fight as she can outsail nor
and ia very heavily armed.
Tho Champion is superior to the Mel
pomene for fighting purposes, as her
battery is very heavy for her class and
consists of four 0-inch and oicrht 5-inch
rapid-firing guns, and six Hotcnkiss. In
addition to this she has on board twenty
one submarine fish torpedo projectiles
that can bo launched and will propel
themsolves on the water's edge to the
objective ship. Her displacement is 2,3bU
tons. Her leiiKth. beam, sneed and coal-
bins are about the same as tho Mel

A Decision of Great Importance in Itall
way Mattel s. ,
Columbus, O., March 29. Judge
Pugh, in tho common pleas court yes
terday, rendered a decision of much
importance in railway matters. Soma
time ago Robert Garrett, the Baltimore
railway magnate, applied for the ap
pointment of a board to assess the value
of shares 1,728 of stock hold by him in the
Pittsburg, Cincinnati and St. Louis
Railway company, and merged without
his knowledge and consent by combina
tion into the Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Chi
cago and St. Louis Railway company.
The decision grants the application
upon the ground that Mr. Garrett did
not agree to tho consolidation and he
and the two companies have been -unable
to agree upon a value of the Btock. .
It is regarded as a decision greatly in
tho interest of minority stockholders.
