Dietrich and Postmaster Jacob Fisher of Hastings, Neb., charging them with conspiracy and bribery in connection with the appointment of Fisher to the position of postmaster.

Amherstburg, Ont, Nov. 18.Navi- gation at the mouth of the Detroit river- is completely blocked by two wrecks lying across the old channel and the new. Several days' will be required to raise the blockade. The trouble began at midnight when the big steel steamer W. L. Brown, bound down with iron ore, struck on the edge of the east bank of the new cut at LimeJEGlns crossing, where the Detroit river empties into Lake Erie, and went on the rocks. She landed directly across the new channel. At 7 a. m. the steamer S. S. Currie, bound up_ with coal, attempted to pass the Brown, but was swung by the strong current directly across the old chan nel. The combined lengths of the two stranded steamers is 800 feet and there is no room in either the old or new channel for other vessels to get by. The Brown ran out about fifteen inches forward and her No. 4 water compartment is full. The rocks have evidently punched a large hole in her steel plates. The Currie is out two feet forward and her forward compart ments are full of water. The captain of the Currie was informed by the government surveyor before he at tempted to pass the Brown that he had about seventy-five feet of clear water, but he was caught by the heavy current in attempting to nass and his ^^ferAW, SENATOR FACES A GRAVE CHARGE ^MlTVVVTTTTTT^f^"rTTTyfTTTTV~iru^TTYT^ THE DAILY ment witn senator uietncn Dy wmcn Fisher was -to pay in property and money-$1,300 for securing to Fisher the appointment. At the federal building it was stated that a United States senator is im mune from arrest on charges of the nature of those named in the indict ment while congress is in session. As a consequence Senator Dietrich will not be apprehended at this time. He will be notified of his indictment, how ever, and it is expected he will appear in court when he can conveniently do so. Doax was swung witn great rorce around until her bow struck the rocks on the east bank. The two boats act as a dam across the mouth of the river and there is a very strong current run ning by +hem. WANT STATE CASE DISMISSED. Motion of Securities Company in Su preme Court. Washington, Nov. 18.Counsel for the Northern Securities company has iiled a motion in the United States su preme court to dismiss the appeal of the state of Minnesota from the deci sion of the United States circuit court of the District of Minnesota in the case of that state vs. the Securities company. The motion is made upon the ground that no question of con stitutional construction is involved in the case and that therefore no direct appeal from the circuit court to the United States supreme court is per missible. In their brief or motion counsel contend that while the suit was founded on federal as well as state statutes none of the rulings of the circuit court involved the con struction or application of the federal institution. The Bailey Cutlery company ot Brentford, Ont, has closed its doors. Insufficient tariff protection is given as the cause of suspension, the firm being unable to compete with Ameri can prices and the cheap labor prod ucts from.England and Germany. BEMIDJI, MINNESOTA.

WINTER DEBATE IS CONTINUED HOUSE RESUMES CONSIDERATION 1KOF THE CUBAN RECIPROC ITY MEASURE. PARTY LINES NOT CLOSELY DRAWN STEVENS (REP., MINN.) OPPOSES BEMIDJI, MINNESOTA, WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 18, 1903. TEN CENTS PER WEEK. AND M'CLELLAN (DEM., N. Y.) SUPPORTS BILL. Washington, Nov. 18.When the house convened Mr. Fowler (N. J.) and Mr. Brundige (Ark.) were sworn in, after which thfe house went into committee of the whole and resumed consideration of the Cuban bill. Mr. Knapp (Rep., N. Y.) was the first I speaker. I Mr. Knapp said that above the com mercial reasons why the treaty should I be made effective, justice to Cuba, for I the fntnre prosperity of which the United States must be made respon i sible, demanded favorable action on the pending measure. Mr. Stevens (Rep., Minn.) spoke thir I ty minutes in opposition to the bill. He said that, while a firm protectionist, he believed the time at hand when re ductions in the present tariff sched ules must be made. He said it was nonsense to think there will be any great increase in our trade with Cuba. "I believe the measure is a cruel blow to one of the most promising agricultural industries of this coun- try," said Mr.- Stevens, adding that there would be a greater reduction in revenues'than estimated by advocates of the bill. Champ Clark Opposes Bill. Mr. Clark (Dem., Mo.) prefaced his remarks by saying he believed it the yours. Turning his attention to the Cuban bill Mr. Clark declared with emphasis that the Republicans could not pass the bill without the Democratic vote in the house, adding "and vou know it." Mr. McClellan, who will soon return from congress to assume the duties of mayor of Greater New York, followed. He said there w%s an argument in favor of the enactment of the bill which rose above all others and In volved the duty and honor of the United States.

EXPECT LOWER PRICES. British Purchasers of Steel Holding Out Orders. New York, Nov. 18.The idea is prevalent here, cables the Herald's London correspondent, that the price of American steel will undergo a fur- i ther reduction. As it is. all sorts of priros are being mentioned for foreign material, offers being made to deliver American or Continental billets at the option of the seller, at figures quite unapproachable by the British maker. But, despite the severe cutting In prices already made in the United States, buyers here are holding off i for still lower rates, There has been some selling of Cleveland warrants. but the reserve of the buying power1 has held the market together.
