Makers—The Work Doae la Both
Washington, June 11.—'The session of
the senate was marked by quite lively
discussions, the main point at issue being
the time alleged by Mr. Vest to be con
sumed by the Republicans. Although tho
senate was operating under the five
minute rule, the Republicans did not fiud
it difficult to discuss each paragraph and
each amendment as long as they desired,
and the debate which followed the first
paragraph tsken up was condemned by
the Democrats in severe terms. It was
asserted that the Republicans were abus
ing the good faith of the agreement.
However, during the day considerable
progress was made on the bill. The ag
ricultural schedule, which has been hang
ing fire for several days, was finally
disposed of, and schedule (spirits,
wines and liquors) was entered upon.
The feature of the consideration of tho
bill was the withdrawal in many in
stances of the Jones compromise amend
ments, allowing the committee amend
ments of the original bouse provisions to
It is expected in both sides of the sen
ate chamber that the woolen schedule
will be reached duriug the present week
in the consideration of the tariff bill.
This schedule will develop one of the
most important debates connected with
the bill. Next to the duty on sugar, free
wool has attracted more attention than
any other item in the bill, and there can
be no doubt that many Republican sen
ators will make speeches vigorously as
sailing the Democratic position.
The house was busy with District of
Columbia business.
Washington, .Tune 12.—The brakes were
taken off in the senate to-day and more
prepress was made with the tariff bill
thr during any previous three weeks of
the consideration of the measure. Three
hedules—spirits and wines, cotton and
flax, Jute aud hemp manufactures, from
paragraph 237 to 277 inclusive, com
prising nineteen pages of the bill, were
deposed of. The entire cotton schedule,
ten pages of the bill, was finished in
thirty minutes. The Republicans made
ira opposition to the amendments proposed
to this schedule, maintaining that the
rates, though reduced, were so arranged
as to make the cotton schedule the most
"scientific" ever prepared. Bags made
of burlap for grain and cottou bagging
were placed on the free list. The collar
and cuff paragraph, providiug for a duty
of 30 cents per dozen pieces and 30 per
cent advalorcm, white shirts and other
articles composed wholly or in part of
linen, carry a duty of 60 per cent, pro

or less amusement. To-morrow the wool
en schedule will be taken up. Mr. Quay
gnve notice just before adjournment that
lie would, when this schedule was reachod
to-morrow, resume the speech he was de
livering four weeks ago.
There was an air of langnld listlcss
ness apparent in the bouse to-day, and it
was evident that the members were not
in a workiiiK humor. While several bills
were considered no action was reachwl
on any- of them on account of a lack of
Washington, June 13.—The senate to
day passed three Northwestern bills.
Senator Washburn secured action by
unanimous consent on 'the bill for the re
lief of E. Douglass, late Indian agent at
Mftite Earth. The bill gives Duugliiss
something like $800. Senator Davis se
cured the passage of a bill to correct the
militvry record of Elisha Bassett. Sen
ator Hansbrough got action on his bill
cki'Pgiug the time for the terms of the
United States courts in North Dakota.
The court will meet at Bismarck on the
First Tuesdsy in March, at Fargo on
the third Tuesday in May, at Grand
Forks on the second Tuesday in Novem
ber, at Devils Lake on the first Tuesday
in July. Both district and circuit courts
will meet at those times, but only one
jury -n ill be called. The fees of the
court officers are fixed at the rates now
paid in Oregon.
The absolute blockade of the tariff bill
in the senate to-day was in marked con
trefct with the wonderful progress made
yesterday. Not a cog was turned. The
entire eight hours were devoted to set
speeches, preliminary to the consideration
of the wool schedule.
Two hours were consumed to-day in the
house over a bill reported by Mr. Outh
wnite setting aside $100,000 from the
fund belonging to the estates of dot-cased
colored soldiers of the civil war for the
purpose of crecting in the District of
Columbia a national homo for fined and
infirm colored people. The 1 -ill win
passed. The Indian appropriation bill
was then taken up, but the house ad

Washington, June 14.—In the senate
spteches were made by Senators Slier
nun, Ilansbrougb, Mitchcll, Stewart,
f-'lioup and Dubois against the wool
hidule. All declared that free wool
r.r uld mean the ruination of the sheep
industry in America. Mr Harris, in
chi,rge of the tariff bill, callcd the atten
tion to the slow progress being made
with the bill, two days having already
been nsuined in general debate on the
v.ool schedule. He then made a request
for unanimous consent that the wool
schedule be proceeded with unde the
fhe-minuta fule to-morrow after Mr. Al
dr:ch, who desired to speak, had finished.
The request developed the fact that Mr.
Ledge, Mr. Chandler, Mr. Piatt, Mr.
Teller and others desired to address the
senate on the general subject of the
schedule, and Mr. Harris, with reluct
ance, said that he was compelled to re
spect the requests of these senators, and
would, therefore, postpone
request to
proceed under the five-minute rule until
The Indian appropriation bill was taken
up in the house. Delegate Flynn of Ok
lahoma obtained the adoption of an
amendment waiving the restrictions to
the sale of lands owned in severalty liy
Indians over twenty-one years old, so far
as applies to the citizen band of Pottn
wattoirics, except when such Indians are
residents of Oklahoma. An amendment
was offered by Mr. Ilolman increasing
the appropriation for support and civiliza
tion of the Apaches, Kiowa s, ComancheB,
Wichitas and affiliated tribes on reserva
tions from $90,000 to $100,000. Adopted.
Wrshington, June 15.—An amendment
to the Indian bill by Mr. I'ickl np
propriatig $5,000 for artesian wells at
I'ine Itidge, Rosebpd and Standing llock
agencies was' agreed to. 'i'lic old sec
tarian question in connection with In
dian schools was rained
Mr. Gear,
who offered an amendment providing:
"It is hereby .declared tli.it it is the pur
pose of this act that no money herein
appropriated shall lie piiid for education
in sectarian schools, and
the secretary 0
the iuterior is hereby authorized aud re
quired tf make all needful rules and
regulations' to prer-nt the use of said
fluids in sectarian schools." A point of
order was made against this amendment
by Mr. Tracey on the ground that it
ehrnged existing law and the chair sus
tained the point.
Tho enate discussed the wod schedule
all day. Mr. Harris, in charge of the
bill, said that unless a vote is taken t«
morrow night sessions will begin.

Columbus, Ohio, JuA U.—The official
circular of tho announcement of the set-,
tliment of the strike issued by the na
tional officers of the United Mine. Work
ers contains about 4,000 words. The set
tlement-agreement is set forth in the in
troduction, followed by a short resume
of the strike, dwelling upon the conven
tion and conference at Cleveland, May
14 and 15, when, after failing to reach
an agreement, the miners adopted a reso
lution placing the whole matter in the
honds of a committee consisting of the
national officers and the district vice pres
ident. The circular continues:
"While we have not been 'able' to re
store wages to what they were in the
early part of 1803, we have in many
cases prevented reductions, nnd in others
scci'red port of what was lost- Kc.luc
tions have been prevented iii Southern
Illinois and in Iowa prices have been re
stored and the organization recognized.
"One-half of the reductions pemliug on
May 1 have been saved to the miners of'
Indifina, and a similar amouht saved to
the miners of Northern Illinois. In addi
tion to this the operators from the latter
field have promised to abolish the In
famous contract system v. liieli lias caused
so much dissatisfaction to the miners
of that part of the country and so much
injury to their competitors in otlie:- fields
In Ohio an inerense of 10c a ten has been
sen red, nnd in Western Pea isylvania
en advance of a similar amount. In addi
tion to the price of mining the inters' ite
agreement has been re-established, and
ot c-e more pe-cefnl methods of adjustiig
weges will take the place of stakes,
lu electing check welghmen miners will
no longer be hampered by the interference
of the operators, they will have the priv
ilege of electing a man of their own
cLoiee to fill that position.
"While we have not succeeded in nc
ecu plishing everything mapped out by the
national convention we have secured more
for the men than could have been ob
trined through local or sectional efforts,
mid, in our judgmeut, all that could be
secured by the present movement uudcr

Swift, of Fitzgerald's Boston industrial

weakened the fiber of woricinginen, and,
pcrhnps, added to the tramp army. In
Boston the policy had been adopted of
giriug nlms to those out of work and in
need. It would be better to furnish public
works by which those in want could be
come producers instead of dead weights
on the community, lie advocated public
farius or factories or work on roads.
Wages for government work should be
lower than the prevailing wages so that
men would lesort to thein only when pri

Washington, .June Iff.—Charles Edgar
Sill, the former Cnrbeglo workman, who
has mihle tho chief disclosures concern
ing defective armor plate furnished the
government, was before the congressional
uvestigatiug committee to-day,. Tlie bear
ing drew together many interested spec
tators, including naval experts and mem
bers of congress not directly prosecuting
the investigation. There was little of a
criminal in the testimony which Sill told
of the manner in which he made written
reports on the result of certain processes
of manufacture. These reports were theu
put in the desk of Supt. Kline who
changed them so as to moike them show
that the processes conformed to the re
quirements uud specifications of the gov
ernment contract. Sill took up bis report
from orlginnl entries on slutes used by
tlie workmen, showing what they had
actually dor.e. After Kline had ehang.-d
the reports they were returned to Sill,
who made up a complete report, includ
ing Kline's alterations, to be submitted
to the government officials as the record
of what had been done. Kline had made
alterations in the original report. Mr.
Sill said he had '/kept tab" on these
alterations and he had his notes with
him. Kline changed dates on order that
the governiueut Inspectors should not de
tect that the work' ns reported was not
within the capacity of the mill. The
books as kept by Snpt. Kline showed
the actual work in hk.ck ink and the
nlteratiiins as submitted to the govern
ment officers were in red ink.
At the suggestion of Chairman ('uni
tniugs "fake work" was used by tlie com
mittee aud witnesses to designate these
"Wl at was the percentage of this fake
work?" osked Mr. Cummings.
"From 75 to 00 per cent was fake work.
1 think that would In- a fair average."
Mr. Sill related how Supt. Kline had
given orders for retreating thousands ol
plates to cover up defects. The order
was written and verbal mid by diagram.
Sili showed a rough diagram which con
stituted one of the orders. The diagram
•wli li was elosely scrutinized by tin

Bisirerck, N. D., June 13.—Coxeyism
is at its height here. Two days ago over
100 icen enne in from the west. Si ic-t
that time they have been reinforced
daily and several small squads have
made their way east on freight tr tins. At
present nearly 2U0 are lu the city await
ing an opportunity to steal their way
ei st on trains. The Northern Pacific
has resisted all efforts by them to secure
truiris, aud there bids fair to be trouble.
Hundreds more of the army are en
raute here from tbe west and GOO down
the'river. l*ust uight the leaders of the
rmy held an open-air meeting at which
(•try siitche* were made. Immediately
after the speaking the whole band seised
upon a special train upou which was
Supt. C. J. Wilson, of tbe Dakota di
vision of the Northern Pacific, and re
fused to vacate the cars they had taken
pettetslon of. At 0 o'clock this moriing
the sheriff, deputies, mayor and oth»
peace officers were summoned, and uf'er
considerable trouble they were ejected
from the train. Upon the arrivul of the
rtgular passenger train there w.is nor,
triable. A few moments before the ar
rival of the train the yards were liuol
ill: Coxeyites. A freight train stood ou
a sidiug, anil members of tbe army
swermed betweei. and upou the cars
VWeiting the traiu. When the traiu pulled
lu there was a grand rush for a place.
Sorce of the meu mounted tbe platformt
and endeavored to get into the coaches,
but the coach doors were locked as soi ti
as the passenger* who wauled to take tiw
tiain had been seated. Some of them
concealed themselves upon break-.lHi!'L.s
uud ou the tup of the coaches. A crowd
ot twenty stood upon tbe front eud of
tbe mail car and upon tbe engine tciA i.
Others swuruieil upon the cowcutcher, aud
they locuted themselves iu all conceivable
plates. Conductor Sloan bad charge ot
the. train, aud, with his brakemeu, or
dered thein off. Some ut them delayed,
and oue or two, with pieces of iron aud
clubs, made a show of resistance, but all
of them retreated. With a rush and a
roar tbe traiu started from tbe west end
of the yards, and after tbe men ou the
cowcatcher had beeu put off it whistled
thiough the yards at a tweuty-five-mile
gait, too fast for catchiug-uu purposes,
perhaps eight or a dozen Coxeyites man
aged to get away. Runiiiug trains east
is almost impossible, owing to Ibe num
ber of Coxeyites who are determined tit
board. To-day the compauy asked for
protection from Cucle Sam, and a num
ber of deputy marshals will be here from
the east to-morrow. A number have lieea
sworn iu here, and should Coxeyites at
tempt to hold trains to-morrow there will
be trouble.

Who Gave Hlai Shelter.
A:Hand, Wis., Juue 13.—Charles Lind

near here about four weeks ago. A load
of hay stood half-unloaded, with the

to lien Kelly's uriuy. Liud is said tv
bilt'lig to a wealthy family in Sweden.
