Letter From Washington, D. C.
Bpocial Correspondence to the Heb.vld.
Washington. D. C, July 10. —Sen-
ator Quay, who Las returned from Penn
sylvania, said to-day: "Yes, the demo
crats are claiming a great deal in Penn
sylvania this year but they will be wo
fully disappointed when the returns are
all in. My confidence in republican
success is unshaken; it is founded on a
rock, and when you have sand in addition
to the necessary rock you are pretty
•wall fixed, and that is just the condition
of the republican party of Pennsylvania."
That was a pretty long speech for Mr.
Quay to make to a newspaper man.
There is not a word of truth in the
statements made in democratic papers
that the republican senators had made a
bargain with the democrats by which
the federal election bill was to be shelved
for the session in return for democratic
promises of not obstructing or delaying
the passage of the McKinley tariff bill.
No such bargain has been made, aud no
such bargain wiil be made. The repub
licans have a large majority in the sen
ate, and to intimate that they would
allow the minority to dictate what should
or should not be done by that body is
simply to insult some of the brainiest
members of the republican party. The
tariff bill will certainly pass before ad
journment, but no determination has
yet been roached upon the federal election
bill. It is thought another republican
caucus will be called before it is finally
decided wnat shall be done with it. One
was held last night and seyeral senators
who had been credited as opposing it
stated that they favored it.
The silver bill reported from the con
ference, and which is certain to become
a law, like all other compromise measures
t ails to pleas? the extreme gold standard
men or the free coinage silver men, but
it seems to snit the average man protty
well. It provides for the purchase of
4,500,000 ounces of silver each month,
which is said to ba slightly in excess of
the entire out put of all the mines in the
United States.
Notwithstanding the extreme warm
weather the president, since hi 3 return
from Cape May Point Tuesday afternoon,
has been working like a beaver.
After many delays Wyoming is a state,
although the forty-fourth star will not
be placed on the flag uflfcil the fourth of
next July. ™
The senate by a majority of 3, refused
to open the debate on the tariff bill this
week. Five republicans voted with the
democrats in this, because they were
opposed to taking up the tariff bill un
til the silver question had been finally
disposed of.
Representative Perkins, of Kansas,
has introduced a bill in the House to
establish public schools in the territory
of New Mexico.
The House committee on invalid
pensions has made a favorable report on
the bill to pension army nurses. The
bill only affscts about 900 women, and it
seems but tardy justice that these women,
many of whom are destitute and in bad
health, should be provided for by the
government for the rest of their lives.
There is an ugly report floating around
here to the effect that Representatives
Hooker and Catchings, sitting members
from Mississippi, had rel ained their eeats
by obtaining the influence of ex-Senator
Bruce and Auditor Lynch, two Mississ
ippi colored men now in office here,
tfhis may or mr.y not be true, but certain
it is that the House committee on elec
tions has made a report against the re
publican contestants of Messrs. Hooker
and Catchings' seats.
More than one hundred members of
the House are absent from the city, and
Speaker Reed has the hardest kind of a
time to keep a quorum present, in fact
hodoesn'tdoitjthe unimportant busi
ness is allowed to go through without
having the question of "no quorum"
raised, and when anything of importance
is to be aot«d upon the members are
drummed up until there is a quorum
The "original packaoe" bill was, ac
cording to the programme of tho com
mittee on rales, to have been disposed
of by the House this week, but the House
&ot contrary and refused to adopt the
resolution submitted to it by the com
mittee on rules. This is the first timo
this session that the House has refused
to follow the programme adopted by
that committee.
Chairman Belden of the republican
congressional campaign committee has
&ent an appeal to the republican editors
of the country asking their aid in arous
ing public sentiment to the necessity of
a federaljelection law.
The House has passed a bill contain
ing the regulations adopted by the recent
international maritime conference to
(■r.yrent collisions at sea.
A Prominent Colfax Citizen Dead.
Oouax, July 15.—William J. Bram
wull died this morning at his home in
this city after an illness of three years.
Mr. Bramwell was well known through
out the country and a highly respected
South Dakota Dislikes Cheyennes.
Washington City, July 12. —Senator
Pettigrew, who does not want the Chey
ennes removed to his state, and Repre
sentative Carter, who wanta to get them
out of Montana, have had a conference,
and have decided that they will compro
mise, join forces and remove the redskins
to the Indian territory. There is philan
thropy in this action, as the gentlemen
claim that the Indians will receive the
much-needed instruction immediately
that they cannot get in Montana or
South Dakota.
Suing: A Railroad.
San Francisco, July 11.—A suit was
filed in the superior court to-day against
the Southern Pacific Railroad company
by William W. Craig, who demands $50,
--000 for injuries which he received on
April 30, while brakeman upon one of
the defendant's trains which was thrown
off the track near Castroville, in Mon
terey county, by reason of a misplaced
Louis Ohnimns and Elizabeth'Ohni
mus sue to recover $50,000 for tho
death of their son Henry, who was em
ployed as fireman on the same train and
was killed in the wreck.
Louis Silberg, one of the passengers
upon the Southern Pacific coast train
which ou May 30 was wrecked at the
estuary on Oakland creek, has sued the
company for $10,211 for injuries re
Stole His Employer's Wife.
Centralia, July 12.—The particulars
of a domestic scandal have just been
brought to light, affecting Mr. G. W.
Hamilton and his wife. Mr. Hamilton
was the keeper of the Palace restaurant'
and had in his employ a young man
named Evans, who acted in the dual
capacity of clerk and head waiter. For
a long time it had been noticed by the
habitues of the house that there appear
ed to be an intimacy between the clerk
and the mistress of the house, which
boded no good to the ponce of mind of
too confiding husband. Mr. Hamilton
discovered that the receipts of his estab
lishment were gradually growing "small
by degrees und beautifully less." At
last his suspicions were aroused. About
this time Mrs Hnmilton was suddenly
seized with a desire to visit a sick friend in
Kalama, and took the south-bound train,
being furnished with the money by her
husband. Shortly after this Evans also
left. Then it was that bills began to
pour in, and Hamilton discovered that
t j had been systematically robbed and
dishonored by his wife. Recently he
received a letter from her dated at What
com, saying that she would not return.
She leaves three small children.
A Repulsive Sight.
Portland, Or., July 11.—Tho most
affecting execution ever seen in the
Northwest was witnessed in the hang
ing of Edward Gallagher at Vancouver
this afternoon. The execution took
place in a temporary courtyard, and was
witnessed by fully 500 people. Such a
scramble to see a man swung into eter
nity has seldom been seen. The eD
closure was crowded, and the fence, shed
on one side, windmill at the other end,
and the roof over the scaf.,ld fairly
groaned with the weight of human
freight. Not only men, but women and
small boys and girls jostled each other
to get a place of vantage, from which
they could see. After the 200 tickets
were collected the door was thrown open,
and a promiscuous crowd thronged in.
Gallagher believed he would be saved
up to the last minute. He was led" into
the yard by the sheriff and deputy
sheriff shortly before 1 o'clock, and with
a little assistance ascended the scaffold.
He refused spiritual consolation from
the priest, saying he was not going to
die, and he did not take any stock in
church affairs, anyhow. "The soldiers
will keep me," said he. The sight of
the crowd seemed to daze him, and when
he spoke his voice was scarcely above a
whisper. He apologized for appearing
before them in that form, and promised
to do better some other time, an imbecile
smile playing about his mouth when he
spoke. Everything went smoothly until
it came to fastening his hands and feet,
and then he fought like a madman. He
struck out with his arms, and kicked
like a maniac, knocking down the sheriff
and several of his assistants, aud it re
quired the combined efforts of seven
men to overpower him.
A feeling of horror crept over the
crowd, for such a struggle on the scaf
fold had never been seen by any present
before. It was harrowing in the ex-!
treme. He was finally manacled and
the cap and noose were adjusted, and,
as the trap was sprung, he hissed the |
words, ■ I don't give a damn. "
His neck was broken by the fall.
Gallagher was hung for the murder '
of Louis Moran, an aged farmer who i
lived near the Cascade Lacks, last '
November. He denied his guilt, claim- i
ing that a man by the name of " Snow-1
ball" did the shooting. "Snowball";
has never been found, and it is balieved \
that Gallagher killed him also. While I
he was not insane, he was a moral idiot. !
As Gallagher was well acquainted with
the soldiers of the barracks, it was be
lieved that a conspiracy was on foot to
rescue him, but the sheriff was well pre
Stolen Money Recovered.
Jamestown-, N. D., July 12.—0n the
night of June 13 last, a Northern Pa
cific train was boarded near New Salem,
N. D., by two masked men, who terror
ized the men and got away with several
pouches of registered mail matter. One
of the robbers was afterwards captured.
The postal authorities probably know by
this time the amount they secured. The
published estimate of 85,000 or $6,000
as the amount is but a rude guesb. It
is believed that the robbers got away
with about $5,000. The postal inspect
ors have searched over the grouru where
they caught the robber. They found
in torn bits and ragged pieces a large
amount of currency, including one bill
of $1,000. There were found a number
of $10 and $20 bills, more or less mu
tilated. A whole bundle had been
dropped in one place, and in the robbers'
haste was not securely tied. Coyotes
or gophers had torn and separated the
money, and the wind had scattered it.
The amount recovered the inspector will
not disclose, but it runs into the thou
Almost A Calamity.
Janesvillk, Wis., July 12.—One hun
dred passengers thundered toward death
I on the Chicago & Northwestern through
express north of this city to-day over
switches ehnt barely in time to keep
the train from destruction. Along the
track the trair: flew, while other trains
were rushed into sidetracks and out of
danger by the frightened train men. On
the floor of the locomotive cab lay En
gineer Steve Ho tall ing, a man of mas
sive build, powerless in the grasp of the
maniac. The insane man brandished a
wrench, which he had clutched from the
engineer's tool box. Both his arms
were in the grasp of the almost despair
ing man beneath him, but the men on
the depot platform at Climan, one of the
towns through which the train passed,
could see that he had nearly freed him
self, and within another moment, unless
help came, the murderous blow of the
wrench would fall. The maniac was
Engineer Hotaliing's fireman, C. L. Hast
ings. Near Watertown he stepped from
the cab to the tender to coal up. He
did not return, and Engineer Hotalling
reached back from his seat, pulled aside
the cab curtain and looked out. As the
curtain moved aside Hastings bounded
in from the tender, clutcned the engineer
about tne neck and threw him headlong
to the swaying foot board. There the
two etrugglod as the train dashed on
under a fail head of steam. At one
time the engineer all but dropped to the
rail beneath the engine, which left with
out fresh fuel, was slowly losing steam,
but still rushed on at a rate that could
mean nothing lees than a fearful tragedy
at the first switch left unturned. As the
train swept past Climan without stop
ping the passengers and train crew
realized that something was wrong and
a party humed forward. Writhing and
struggling among the blocks of coal on
the tender they saw a maniac and engi
neer. Hastings was overpowered and
taken to the baggage car. A moment
afterward he fainted. Consciousness
did not return till two hours later. The
intensely hot weather, made more try
ing by the temperature of the cab, is
given as the cause of his insanity, and
there are fears that he cannot recover.
A Torch In the Sea.
Port Townsejjd, July 12.—The re
port that Mount Bogoslov, Alaska, is in
a state of eruption is verified by officers
and passengers on the steamer Arago.
The steamer left Ounalaska July 3, and
at that time huge volumes of steam and
smoke could be seen issuing from tho
volcano, while at night a pillar of fire
thousands of feet in height was discern
ible for miles.
Bogoslov is on Oumnak island, and
according to Indian tradition rose from
the sea in 1796. Government surveyors
give the height of the mountain at 1,169
feet, but recent surveys show that the
mountain peak is but 884 feet above the
water line. The volcano first began to
emit fire and smoke about two months
ago, the eruption following a violent
earthquake. Bogoslov has been in a
state of activity ever since, and Professor
Elliott of the Smithsonian Institution,
now at Ounalaska, so it is said by those
on the Arago, has personally visited the
island on which the volcano is situated
and made au investigation.
Ounalaska is about forty miles distant
from the yolcano, and Oumnak island is
nearly twelve miles from the nearest
point of Ounalaska island, and snow on
the mountains in the neighborhood has
been turned gray by ashes. In walking
through the grass a pedestrian gets
covered with ashes believed to come from
the volcano. As the island upon which
the volcano is situated is uninhabited,
Ido damage will result. The sight is a
grand one, and mariners hope that the
1 activity will continue, as it serves as a
j lighthouse in guiding vessels through
I Oumnak pass. Mount Shishaldin, on
; Analgo island, was beginning to show
j signs of approaching activity when the
i Arago sailed. Steam and smoke have
I been seen to issue from the center, and
I fire and lava were daily expected to be
seen issuing from the "mouth. Shishal
■ din i 6 5,952 Toet in height and rises grad
i ually to the summit. It is perpetually
1 covered with scow, and with the peak
can be seen at sea for a distance of ninety
miles. If this volcono should become
active the eight would de one of un
equaled grandeur, and the eruption
would be o fine subject for scientific in
, v.'Stigation.
Arid Lands,
Washington/July 14. —Judge Carey,
delegate from Wyoming, has introduced,
at the request of his constituents, a bill
providing for the segregation of irri
gable lands of the and region and grant
ing them to the several states and terri
tories. The bill has in its aim the
settlement of the much discussed ques
tion. In its provisions the secretary
of the interior is directed by means of
geological surveys to make examinations
and Burveys of that portion of the
United States where agriculture is
carried on by means of irrigation suf
ficient to enable him to designate mo6t
suitable areas for irrigation and to de
termine the location of reservoirs, ditches
and canals, by means of which reclama
tion is to be accomplished. The di
rector of geological surveys is to begin
his examination of areas where irriga
tion has the greatest importance. He is
to make a report each year. When the
secretary of the interior receives the re
port of the director he is to transmit to
the governor of each state where a sur
vey is being prosecuted an accurate de
scription of the lands located for irriga
tion within the boundary of the state,
and at the request of a governor the
president is to cause a patent to be
issued to the state, on the issue of which
title to the lands is to be vested in the
state, subject to the disposal of its legis
latnre, under certain conditions. These
conditions are that the land shall be dis
posed of to actual settlers and cultiva
tors, and not to exceed 160 acres to each
individual, the maximum price to be 310
j>er acre. The proceeds of the salo of
the lands are to constitute a fund to pay
the expenses of the supervisor of the
irrigation system of the state, for the
construction of works, to be built and
owned by the state. Land is not to be
sold or disposed of until the proper
state authorities shall have provided for
the construction of suitable reservoirs,
ditches or other works necessary for
complete and proper reclamation by the
issue of bonds or by contract. The
state is to hold title to the lands until
canals and other works for supplying
water have been satisfactorily completed
and the land subjected to cultivation.
Any failure to comply with the pro
visions of tho act governing the disposal
is to cause the lands to revert to the
United States, and all lands not re
claimed within twenty years from the
date of the grant from the United States
to the state are to revert to the federal

Seattle, Gash., Jnly 17.—1n the su
perior court to-day Louis Gnrat, Charles
H. Florida and George R. Clark brought
