Coroner S ich held an li ouest yester
day on ibe body of a six months old
child named Joseph Schoerman, whose
psrenis reside at No 551 Rtce it reel.
The child, according to tbe statement
of the parents, bad never been healthy,
and was nursed on a bottle, tbe mother
having do milk for It. Just previous
to his death, which occurred yesterdsy
morning, no physlolin was in attend
ance, bence tbe necessity for a Coro
ner's jury.
It appears from tbe mother's state
ment to tbe jury tbat she had, during
tbe pait two months, given tbe child
from a half to tbree-quarteri of a tea-
spoonful of the sirup every evening.
Dr. T. M. Witikanip, wbo was called
as an expert at to tbe properiies con
tained In the sirup, testified that
"Winslow's Soothing Sirup contain!
trora one-hair to one grain or morpbla
loan ounce of Ibe ilrup; and, from
what I can eee, thle child has been tak
ing about two ouucea of tbis sirup
from time to time, which would pro
duce itupi ll y and brain trouble, and
in a great t' .ny caiei produces deatb.
In my opln on. (be child died from the
effect of the -irup."
Afteratew minutes deliberation the
jury returned with a verdict that death
reiuitea "irom aisease oi ine orain
caused by a too free use of opium ad
ministered by Its parent!, ine laid
opinm was contained n a decociioo
known as 'Mrs. Winslow's Soothing
Sirup, snd the jury re of the opinion
thst parents should lie very cireiui in

THE HOT I PklNGI PERSONAL EXPLA
NATION OP MR. DURStY.
Doney, of Arkausss, arose to a per
eonal explanation, and called attention
to a publication wbicb appeared in a
New York paper or yeaterday, regard
ing bli amendment to the bill pasted
lest week to extend Ihe time of the
Hot Springe Commission. He said he
had long i-iuce determined not to re-
pood to oewipsper publication In
itigaied by persons engaged In
defsmlug tbe character ol those
ou the floor, but In regard to
tbii matter he desired to isy tbe amend
ment I'ltimiited by him limply author
ized the Superintendent of H it Spring
Reiervation to lease ground for the
erection of luitable bath houiei for the
accommodation of the public, and to
distribute water to tbe people of the
place. It granted no otber privilege.
There were two or three individuals
banging around tbe Capitol, who bad
tbe intereiu of tbe people of Hot
Spring! io much it heart, tbat tbey tel
egraphed there tbat a great fraud bad
been perpetrated by bim tar. Doner ),
and that the Water Company was to
have possesion ot all tbe Springe,
The amendment be proposed waa an
absolute necessity to enable tboie vis
Hint the Springs to enjoy tbe advan
tsgeiof tbe watere aud bath. All tbe
bath-houses out seven were destroyed
by tbe recent fire, lie had received
many tetters urging tbe psssage of
sucb an amendmeut aa ttia submitted,
and he submitted It because be thought
It wsi tbe right thing to be done. The
only thing the Water Company asked,
and all ibe bill granted, was tbe right
to build a reservoir on tbe mountain
for cold water lo supply the city, and
end bath bouses. It did not give tbe
Company a right to the Hot Springs;
if it did, he (Mr. Dorsey) would be as
quick to protest against it as any one.
Lie had letters now from ex-Senator
Cragen and others, approving tbe
amendment. For more than a year he
(Mr. Doraey) had apent much time and
money in anting tnese not springs on
Acuities, and finally the bill wai passed
which organized the Commission, and
the adjustment of difficult questions
involved wu now progressing to the
satisfaction of every one, and justice
waa being done to all. lie must ex
press tbe opinion that when the people
of Hot Springs understood bis amend
ment they would not condemn iu Tbis
story, like the others, was not worthy
of his atteution.
MR. JONEI, OP FLORIDA, MOBOAN, OP AL
ABAMA, AND MATTHEWS, OF OHIO, ON
THE T MBEB QUESTION.
The Pacific Railroad Sinking Fund
Bill was tben laid aside witk tbe un
demanding it ebould not lose its place
as the unfinished bosinoss, and the sen
ate resumed conilderation of ihe bill
authorizing the Secretary of the Treat
ory to employ temporary Clarke, and
making an appropriation for lama:
alio making appropriation for deter
ring trespass on public lands, and for
bringing into market publie lande In
certain States, aud for other purpose,
tbe pending question being on the
amendment of Mr. Beek lo tbat of tbe
Committee on Approprlatione prohib
iting tbe as of money lo collect any
eharge for wood or timber cut on pub
lie lauds In tbe Territories of tbe United
Statei for the me of eettleri In Terrlio
rlet and not for export; lo provide
tbat tbe timber ihali not be exported
from ibe territory wbere it grew ; and
provided further, in the event It shall
be exported from lb territory, It shall
be liable to seizure by United State
authorities wherever found.
jonoi, of Florida, quoted the aecond
section of the bill, which appropriate
$20,000 for diagram, furniture and re
paire In tbe General Land Office, actual
expeniei of elerke detailed to Investi
gate fraudulent land entries, trespasses
on publie lands, etc., and said he would
never vote for tbat appropriation, as
the Secretary could Die tba whole of it
to annoy and harass the people. What
authority existed under tbe laws
of the United Statee as they bow stood
ror in action or the eeoretary of the
Interior in regard to timber landi?
The Senate had been told there bad
been no change in tbe policy of tb In
terlor Department; tbat the present
Secretary wae following In Ihe itepaof
his predecessors. He (Mr. Jones con
tradicted that nosltlon : he denied that
it wu true. The preient Secretary bad
loitiiuisd a new policy, and on not
supported by law ; a policy whloh had
a detrimental effect on a large part of
tbe people of this country, lie argued
mat m an cases or umosr prosecutions
which bad taken place in the Southern
States, tbe Secretary of the Interior bad
gone Into Federal Courts nnder State
laws, wbicb b bad no right to do, and
without anything, be believed, in tbe
statutes of tbe United Slatos to ins
tain blm In his proceedings. Up to tbe
time when tbe preient Secretary of tbe
interior eame Into office, sucb a thing
was never beard ol a a selzsre of tim
ber in tbe banda of any man wbo had
purchased loge in open market. He
quoted from tbe section of the Revised
Statutes regarding timber lands, and
argued that it wu never tbe Intention
of the Government to permit tbe Sec
retary of the Interior to barrels and per
secute a large uumber of tbe people of
tbe country by suite not authorized by
law. In reading over tbe correspond
ence between toe secretary oi tb in
terior and his agente, he found
that charcoal most bs seized,
Nearly every men knew that char
coal was manutsetored by poor
men ana not oy rica corporations.
Where ibe Secretary of ibe Interior got
hi. authority to selz charcoal, was be
youd bis comprehension. Whatever
authority wis conferred by tbe Revised
Statutes to pouiib timber depredations
wss not given to tbe Secretary of tbe
Interior, hut to tbe Secretary of tbe
Navy, lie was tbe only officer to carry
out sections 2401, 2462 and 2463 of Ibe
Revised Statutes. Tbe policy of the
Secretsry of theluterlor was not right,
not wise, not generous, ine states ot
Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisi
ana and Arkansas, bad large districts
of public Isnds which were of no use
whatever for agricultural purposes,
dui uy a mutagen poucy mey itad been
reierved ror eaie, and citizens were not
allowed to boy a tingle acre, no matter
bow mach they might ueed tbe landi
for tbeir convenience.
Morgan, of Alabama, alio opposed
the iccond section of tbe bill, and said
tbe Secretary of tbe Interior bad relied
on men not worthy of trust, and re
fused io bear men wbo were worthy of
trust In regard to these timber depre
dations. The conduct of tbe Secretary
of the laierlor as to public limber
lands hsd been evsiive and not candid,
lie elarted out lor (he purpose of exer
cising a jurisdiction which the law
never conferred upon bim, and when
b wu advised tbat ble agents exceed
ed tbeir authority, h abut bis eyee to
all review of tbeir condue. The
Secretary of the Interior had been
informed by those wbo knew, tbat lose
tbsa eight sper cent, of land within
wsgon haul of tbe place wbere seizures
in the South bave been made, wu nub
ile land ; the balance was tbe private
land. An issue had been made here In
Senate between tbe Secretary of tbe
Interior on one part and tbe people on
tbe other part tbe Seoretary being
characterized ae an eminent patriot and
the people u a pack of thieves. A
msn in bis State, one Ileister, wae
now preparing an additional raid on
tbe people of Florida. He (Mr.
Morgan) knew instance ia Ibe
8outh, where men owning saw-mills bad
beed mined by timber seizare, and
hundred of thousands of dollar loet.
Tb Senate could not vote on thle ques
tion now without seeing plainly the
issue presented. He tben read an order
or tne secretary ot ue rreuury, to
nr. tiunt. Collector of uoetome at
Vlcksborg, Miss., directing him to re
fuse clearance to vessels having on
board turpentine inspected of hav
ing been taken from tree on the
public lande, and, reinming hit
remark!, laid, these induitrlee in
the 8ontb were lo be broken up
by Menrt. Bartley and Garter, agents
or tne interior uepartment aent
there. Tbe Secretary of tbeTreunry
had laid an embargo opon a port In the
Instance of these men. Tbe Govern
ment could rely oo tbe eupport ol the
people in tbe varioue localities to en
force lew better tbat it could on hired
pimps and spies sent from tbis city
Thousands ol cattle were now putur
ing oa publio land. Pan thia bill,
andthengpua od o seize ail ?
found puturlng on publie lands, lie
gave notice that at the proper lima he
wonld move to strike out the second
Section of Ihe Bill.
Matthews, of Ohio, esid whatever
die might result from thlsdsbate, some
good would follow. It wonld demon
strate tbe necessity for wise and ayste-
matio leglilailon covering this entire
subject. Ue would endesvor to express
bis vlewe on Ibis matter divested of
any personal feeling, lie had bo feeling '
other than that of protection of poblio
interests, lie bad looked with appre
hension on ibe wssteful destruction of
our foresfa, and there wae a
growing public sentiment for their
preservation. He argoed that tbe
Gouernment owned tbe land, together
with tbe limber thereon, and rot per
son engued in cutting timber thereon
became a tresapauer. The real gist of '
the accusations againel the Secretary of ,

The London Tims oa the risberie
Award.
London, March 21. -The Times' ed ,
itorlal on the Flsherle Award aave It
is unfortunate for tbe good ram or tne
United States tbat at a moment when
the financial policy of Congress hu
awakened grave suspicions and anxie
ties In Europe, some American poll
tlclans of eonsiderable Importanoe and
notoriety display another phase of re
pudiation spirit by opposing tbe pay
ment of tbe award. Tbe reckless lan
guage of Blaine and Butler la not only
throwing discredit on tbe country, but
damaging to tbe system of settling in
ternational dispute by arbitration.
No country henceforward will be will
ing to refer elalms lo arbitration, if the
decision of arbitrator is to be chal
lenged by tb unsuccessful party. Tb
article continues: "Tbe attempt at
Washington to attack tb Impartiality
of Mr. Delfosse are Id keeping with
the spirit of chicanery which forced a .
commutation of the onanlmona award.
We hope and believe Mr. Blaine will '
not be able te get tbe Congress of hie
conntry to support blm in refusal to
pay the award, and atemp American
poilcy with the double discredit of
meanuesi and trlckinesa.
