FOR YEARS
The Terrible Plague Has Raged la
China.
I In ttws HprlnjEr ?lack Death Droh? Oh* Iq
[ Canton* Thence Spread to IJoog Ko?g,
Whore It Raged With n Paoto
Broodlng Virulence.
?
Waphington, July 23.?Surgeon Gen
cral Wyman, of the Marine Hospital
scrvico, has received a report regarding;
the "plague" in China from Dr. Stuart
Eldridge, a member of the, imperial
board of health of Tokio and health
j officer of the port of Yokohama. Tho
plaguo, he says, has been known to bo
present in the Yunnan district of South?
ern China for. at least fifteen years
j past, at times epidemic in malignant
form. At the end of February last tho
! disease broke out in Canton, and al?
most simultaneously was epidemic in
Pakhoi, a port at the head of the Gulf
of Tong King.
During March and April the epidemic
in Canton steadily increased until in
the latter month it had assumed
gigantic proportions. The authorities
of I long Kong, the center of trade in
the far east, Iralf a day's journey from
Canton, and, in consequence, in very
frequent communication therewith,
utterly ignored the existence of danger
even in their city, until in the first ten
days of May the plague broke out
violently and extensively in Hong
Kong.
Since its appearance in Hong Kong,
the epidemic which is unquestionably
the genuine bubonic plague of the most
malignant type, has steadily increased,
until, by the latest reliable advices,
the mortality is certainly over ono
hundred per diem, and this despite the
fact that at least one hundred thou?
sand Chinese and many Europeans
have evacuated the place?the former
in many cases leaving on feeling tho
first symptoms of the disease, in tho
hope of dying in their native villages.
At least a dozen Europeans have been
attacked, most of them succumbing.
From Canton and Hong Kong tho
disease is spreading throughout the
neighboring country, and will, prob?
ably, in a shorl time appear in tho
coast towns of China to the northward
of I long Kong, for, partly from the
carelessness in such matters but too
prevalent among the English in the
cast, no effective quarantine has been
or is likely to be established at these
points.
Several eases have already occurred
on the steamers trading from Hong
Kong to the Chinese ports, but, so far,
and this is encouraging, without seri?
ous consequences, possibly on account
of prompt action on the part of tho
ships' surgeons,
A quarantine system has been put
into operation in Japan, largely under
Dr. Eldridge's advice and pcrsonal'su
porvision, imposing on all ships from
the infected district a minimum detcn
t ion of nine days when all is well on
board, and the same in case of infec?
tion, dating from last death. As all
the steamship lines between Hong
Kong and Japan are themselves tak?
ing every precaution, so far but one
infected vessel has reached a Japanese
port. This was the Pacific Mail Steam?
ship Co-hs Peru, on board of which,
while at sea between Hong Kong and
Nagasaki, one of the Chinese firemen
died of ?nmistaknble and malignant
Jdugue, on June 4, after 1ml twenty
bur hours1 illness. The surgeon of
the ship acted in an exceptionally
prompt and intelligent manner, and
though the ship was quarantined at
Nagasaki for the term of nine days
after the death, no more cases occurred
on boa i*d.
"If I may presume to advise," says
Dr. Eld ridge, ''1 would say that the
most stringent measures may need to
be taken to protect the United States,
particularly as regards certain classes
of goods from China likely to convey
infection, rags, old cotton, etc., and
also such manufactured articles as are
made in the little native workshops with
perhaps a case of plague dying in tho
same room, such things as straw mat?
ting, embroideries and every sort of
textile fabric. So long as the disease
is kept out of Japan, so long will this
country be the best bulwark for tho
United States against the importation
of the disease. Should* it break out in
an}- part of Japan, I shall see that you
have every information by cable."
Forest Fires iu Wisconsin.
West Superior, Wis., July 23.?Tho
Superior fire department was called to
South Range Sunday afternoon to pro?
tect that village from destruction by
forest fire. Several buildings have
been burned there. Fires are racing
all around this city for thirty miles,
and dozens of settlers have been burned
(Mit. Several sawmills are in ashes and
thousands of feet of standing pine.
Healed For Wall Street,
Wilmington, Del., July 23.?Carl
Itrowne and seventy members of tho
Coxey army arrived here and went into
camp, having marched from lUadens?.
burg. Mr. Browne says the army has
been to Washington to see the servants
of the bankers and brokers, and that it
is now going to New York to see tho
bosses themselves.
Nihilist Arrested at St. Petersburg.
St. Petersburg, July 23.? The polico
Sunday arrested twenty nihilists in
this city. No reason is known.for tho
arrests, but it is conjectured that they
were due to the discovery of a plot
against the life of the czar.
Railway Shops Closed.
Albuquerque, N. M.; July 23.?Tho
big shops of the Atlantic and Pacific at
this point were closed fortan indefinite
time Saturday. About four hundred
men are thrown out of work. The or?
der closing the shops states that the j
financial depression makes the step ,
necessary as a direct result of the A,
R. U. strike.
TIio Roent Earthquakes.
Loxuox, July 23.?The Standard's
Constantinople correspondent says: "It
has been conclusively established that
more than a thousand persons were
killed by the recent earthquakes."

FIFTY-THIRD CONGRESS.
Second Session.
Washington, July 17.?Senate?Two more
expropriation bills?the legislative, executive
and Judicial and tbe District of Columbia
were disposed of by the senate Monday. The
agricultural appropriation bill was also con?
sidered and was on tbe point of being passed,
i but there were several individual omendmenta
I loft to be considered Tuesday. This leaves
I but three moro appropriation bills to be con
! sldered?tbo Indian, sundry civil and deficiency
I ?and of theso only tbe first has come from the
: committee. The anti-option bill, which has
; been on the vice president's table since it came
j from tbe house several weeks ago, was Mon?
day referred to the committee on agriculture
i end forestry. The conference report on the
j military academy appropriation bill was
j agreed to.
I House?The house Monday indorsed the ad?
ministration by adopting without division Mc
Creary's resolution supporting the president's
course in tho matter of the strike. The reso?
lution is similar to tbe one which Mr. Storer
tried to introduce, but for which purpose
Speaker pro tern Richardson rofused to recog
nlzo him, holding that It wns best to
infor that everybody Indorsed It than
to run tho risk of a contest The re?
mainder of the day was spent in an effort to
press tho Bailey bankruptcy bill; but. al?
though it was engrossed and read a third time,
the Quorum failed on the final vote, and tho
i vote on tho final passage will be taken the first
thing Tuesday.
Washington. July 18.?Senate?The sen?
ate had before it Tuesday the consideration of
the agricultural bill, which passed by a vote of
27 to 24. As reported to the senate It appro?
priates for the agricultural department for the
fiscal year 1894, $3.:08,163, being $5,400 less than
the amount in the house bill and $108,000 less
than the amount appropriated for '94. There
were some small incrcasos made and the bill
passed in the senate. In addition to the million
dollars given in the Russian cactus amend?
ment. Tho Indian appropriation bill was
taken up and is now tbe unfinished business.
House?Tuesday was accorded to tho com-,
mittee on the judiciary, under an order adopt*
ed by tho house Monday to present bills for
consideration, but an hour and a half of the
session was spent on other matters before tho
committee found its way oiear to the floor.
The Bailey bill, to establish a uniform system
of bankruptcy, -which camo over from Monday,
was pasHcd?yeas, 127; bays, 81. Senate
amendments to the- bill extending for one year
the time in which final payment may be upon
land entries under tho pre-emption law, were
agrocd to. The conference report on the bill
fixing a termination of time In which land en?
tries under what is known as the donation act
of 1850 may be closed up, was presented by Mr.
McRae, (15cm., Ark.), and agreod to.
Washington, July 19.?Senate.?The In?
dian appropriation bill was under considera?
tion Wednesday. The appropriation of 81,000.?
000 for the support of Indian day and Indian
industrial schools and other educational pur?
poses provoked a good deal of discussion. Mr.
Platt (rep.. Ct) taking tho ground that all de?
nominational or contract schools for Indian
children should be gradually dispensed with
and government schools substituted for them.
The item of $100,000 for the Indian industrial
school, at Carlisle Pa., was, on motion of Mr.
Quay, increased to $110,000.
House?The agricultural appropriation bill
was sent to conference. Messrs. Hatch (dem., j
Mo.), Foreman (dem., 111.), and Waugh (rep.,
Ind.) being the managers .on the part of the
house. Mr. Hatch promised to take the sense j
of the house before agreeing to the senate j
amendment appropriating $1,000.000 for the ex- |
termination of the Russian thistle. In the
courso of the afternoon six bills reported from
the committee on military affairs wore passed
under the operations of the order which gave
the day to the consideration of measures roc-"
onimcnded by it.
Washington. July20.?Senate.?An amend?
ment was offered to tho Indian bill by the son
ator from Washington, Mr. Squire, to allow
tho Puyallup Indians holding lands In soveralty
on their reservation near Tacoma. in thai
state, to soil portions of them. Tho discussion
of this Question oocupied over three hours, and
was finally decided in the negative?the amend?
ment being laid on the table by a v?te of 2G to
10. The bill was finally passed. Tho confer?
ence report on the diplomatic and consular ap?
propriation bill was agreed to. and the state?
ment was mado by the chairman of the com?
mittee on appropriations that the two remain?
ing appropriation bills?the .sundry civil and
the deficiency?would not be reported to ?he
senate for some few darn.
House -Tho llrst battlo In the open over tho
diffoi-ances between the houso and scautc was |
fought Thursday in the house Of representa?
tives in the presence of alarge and deeply inter?
ested audience. Mr. Wilson arose and said ho j
was dirocted by the conferees on the part of
the house to report they had been nnab'c to i
agree upon the amendments by tho senate to
the tariff bill, and to move that the house in- |
slst upon its disagreement and ask for a further j
conference. A resolution to insist on tho dis?
agreement' to tho senate amendments was
agreed to without division. The speaker then
reappointcd the former conferees on the part
of tho house, und the regular order wus taken
up. The conference report on the naval ap?
propriation bill, the mi'itary appropriation bill
und the diplomatic and consular appropriation
bill was agreod'to without division.
Washington. July 21.?Senate.?Tho sen?
ate Friday was the theater of a great oratorical
display. The occasion was the presentation of
the message from the house, caking for a
further conference on the tariff bill. Mr. Gray j
(dem., Del.) moved to insist upon the senuto
amendments to the tariff bill and to agree to a
further conference. A motion was made by ,
Mr. Vilas (dem.. Wis.) to recede from the dif- j
ferential duty of one-eighth of a cent on sugar; j
and this motion provoked a long discussion j
participated in by Senators Vllas, Sherman i
and Palmer in support of the motion, and by i
the two Louisiana senators?Caffrcy and }
Blanchord?against It. No vote wasi taken oh |
any of the propositions, and too senate at 5.80
adjourned till Monday next. j
House?Very difforent from that of Th?rs- '
day was the scene in the house Friday. Tho
gallorics contained only such persons as could
not gain admission to the senate, while on the
floor, at least until near the hour of recess,
were few members present. Tho committee
on the judiciary was entitled to tho morning1
hour and virtually without objection the eight
bills called up by Chairmen C'nlberson were all
passed. Conference wi?s ordered on the
amendments to the legislative, executive and
judicial appropriation bill. ;
Washington; July 2;t?senate?Not in scs-;
sion Saturday.
House?The Tucker joint resolution provid?
ing for an amendment to the constitution, by j
which senators are to be elected by the people, )
was passed Saturday, as the result of clover i
manipulation of members and their votes. It
was adopted by a vote of 15*7 to 49. a two-thirds
majority being necessary, as it is an amend- j
raeut to the constitution. Not even the most
sanguine of the supporters of the proposition
on the house side, however, entertains tho Idea '
that It will successfully run the gauntlet of
the senate, for this is the second time that tbe
house has passed such a resolution.

in the senate Friday. In order to save

such peril as Friday.
By their hasty adjournment the
managers of the measure admitted the
i imminent peril of the bill. All day
long they were prepared to stave off
the vote upon any of the pending mo?
tions in the senate, because they knew
that if voting were once to begin Fri?
day a straight path to the destruction
of the measure would be opened.
This can be seen from the nature of
the motions now pending. First of
theso is that of Senator Hill to instruct
the senate conferees to recede from
the senate duty on coal and iron ore.
Is'ost is the motion of Senator Vilas to
recede from so much of the sugar
schedule as provides for a duty of one
eighth of one cent per pound on re?
fined sugar in addition to fortv per
cent, ad valorem. Back of this demo?
cratic leaders were aware that Senator
Quay was prepared, if the opportunity
offered, to offer his motion instructing
the conferees to recede from the entire
sugar schedule
The greatest danger was tho motion
of Mr. Vilas. They well knew that if
brought to a voto it would certainly be
carried. In the meantime democratic
members of the house were on the
senate whispering thoir delight at the
turn things had taken in the Vilas
blow at the sugar trust and informing
the senators that if the bill came to the
house in that form the house would
yield to all the rest of the senate
amendments.
The democratic senators were also
confronted by the knowledge that if
the Vilas amendment was curried the
bill would lose the votes of the Louisi?
ana senators, Messrs. Caffery and
Hlanchard, while Senator Smith, of
New Jersey, announced in stentorian
tones that he would go no further: that
the house must accept the senate bill
as it stood or leave it.
It is evident, also, that the bill is
confronted with another serious dan?
ger. If it be not amended as the presi?
dent indicates, it is difficult to see how
he can give it his approval should it
ever reach the white bouse. This was
made very clear by Mr. Hill, who
pointed out that tho president had
practically said in his message to Mr.
Wilson that the pending bill meant
"party perfidy and party dishonor."

To Avert Strikes.
Chicago, July 21.?The civic federa?

ment, which, its members hope, will

This plan is to hold a congress of,
representatives of employers and em- j
ploy es, similar to the parliament of
religions held in this city last year. 1
The representatives of these botlies
will confer and give the result of their
experiences and adopt some measures
of conciliation which will avert strikes
in the futi:re. A date for tho proposed
conference has not yet been set.

t _
Cu'CAOO. July 23.? The Herald prints
a long- article giving- in detail the plans
\ of the American Railway union to ab?
sorb the older railway brotherhoods,
and the recently organized American
Labor union, to take every class of
labor except railway emploj'es, the
two organizations to affiliate and be
prepared by May 1, 1S95; to demand a
readjustment of wages to the basis ex?
isting prior to the panic and hard times,
and in the event of refusal to order a
general walkout.
The articles continues:
"Some broad statements in this con?
nection were made bv ofueials of the
American Railway union headquarters,
as follows: 'That on or about January
15, 1S(.).">. there would be held in Chicago
a convention composed of representa?
tive men of the American Hail way
union, the United Mine Workers of
North America, the Knights of Labor
and American Labor union: the Ameri?
can Federation of Labor and the old
railway brotherhoods would not be rep?
resented in this convention: that at this
convention all branches of labor repre?
sented would be called on to present a
succinct report as to the then existing
wage scales, and how much they have
been cut in 1802, 1st):] and 16U4; that
these wage scales should then be formu?
lated, and be presented to the corpora?
tions and railroads, with the demand
that they be readjusted to the basis
existing prior to the panic and hard
times, and that if this demand was not
granted a general walkout should fol?
low May 1. 1805.'
"As one officer of tho A. R. U. put it:
'The present strike will never be de?
clared off by Mr. Debs, and we expect,
if the Chicago switchmen remain firm,
that the Chicago roads will eventually
compromise on a basis satisfactory to
all. The present strike not being de?
clared off, a convention of the charac?
ter described will be entirety in place,
and will bring together at that time
the strongest labor organization in
the world. There will be a full
analysis of wage scales before any
demand is made on capital for a
change, and tho east will be as strongly
represented in the new labor organiza?
tions then as the west is now. The
movement of May 1, 1895, then, will be
only a rc-inforcement of the strike be?
gun on June 2(5, ls'.?4.'
"In this plan much is expected of the
new American labor union, whose
membership Is now claimed to be 1,000,
and has opened its ranks to every class
of labor except railroad employes.
"Thofxi behind the plan for the Jan?
uary convention expect the acquittal
of Debs by the courts, and that follow?
ing this, he will make a tour of the
east, delivering speeches and organiz?
ing branches of his order, while cam?
paigners from the American Labor
union will follow him to make inroads
into the ranks of the Gompevs follow?
ers. They argue that the time was
never better for the establishment of a
labor unkm to control all the labor fac?
tions outside of railroad work.
*Tho A. R. U. officials point to the
ruin of tho Mutual Aid association of
the switchmen, and the fact that tho
American Railway union has already
absorbed half of its membership, and
will have the rest as soon as it provides
an insurance department for death and
a beneficiary for accidents.
"As to the Brotherhood of Locomo?
tive Engineers, the union officials re?
gard that tis practically officially dead.
They cite the dissolution of lodges of
this order at Champaign, Danville,
Terre Haute and in all parts of the
country but the east, as evidence that
the engineers either wish to be inde?
pendent of or are ripe for a new organ?
ization. Given, therefore, the switch?
men and engineers, with wdiat they
have ahead}', the A. R. U. officials
count on a convention in January of
two thousand delegates, representing
every brauch of labor from a new.#>oy
to a railroad engineer, and with Mr.
Debs presiding;
"The statement was made broadly at
A. R. U. headquarters that President
Sovereign would not interpose a single
objection to the total absorption of
the Knights of Labor by the American
Labor union, and that since the fiasco
in his attempt to call them out on a
strike when, except in scattered locali?
ties, there were few to call out. he has
recognized the coming new powers,
and only desires not to be left entiicly
out. On the other hand. General ; ec
retary John \V. Hayes is reported to bo
decidedly averse to sacrificing the iden?
tity of the knights, preferring to pre?
serve the fiction of an organization to
a complete surrender. Those who
spoke of the coming convention ere m?
close to Debs that it was ih;i i re I Liie r
desires were but a reflection of tin
next move he intends to make.*'

Faults in Conversation.
Dean Swift once said: ' There are two
faults in conversation which appear
very different, yet arise from the same
root and are equally blamable; I mean
an impatience to interrupt others, and
the uneasiness of being interrupted our?
selves. The two chief ends of conver?
sation are to entertain and improve
those we are among or to receive those
benefits ourselves; which whoever will
consider can not possibly run into
cither of those two errors, because
when any rrftn spcaketh in company it
is to be supposed l>c doth it tor his
hearers' sake and not his own: so that
common discretion will tench us not to
fcrce their attention, if they are not
wiUing to lend it: nor, on the other
side, to interrupt him who is in posses?
sion, because that is in the grossest
manner to give the preference to our
own good sense."?Toledo Blade.
