is Usual, Shoots off His
Mouth on Every Occasion.
Republicans Refuse to Vote
When Called Upon.
Washington, Jan. 3.— There was
not a very brilliant setting for the open
ing of the tariff debate in the house this
morning. lieu Speaker Crisp mounted
Ihe rostrum at high noon and rapped
;he house to order, there were many
vacant seats in the public gallery. The
press gallery, overhanging the speaker's
chair, however, was lined with news
paper correspondents. Ou the floor
there was considerable animation. Ex-
Speaker Reed, Mr. Burrows, Mr. Dal/ell
and other Republican leaders were con
ferring earnestly, and on the Demo
cratic side each member of the ways
and means committee was surrounded
by a group of his colleagues.
There was much uncertainty as to the
tactics which the Republicans would
pursue, the suspicion being that at the
very outset the Republicans would lay
every obstruction in the path of the
tatiff, and that the iirst step in the pro
j-ramme would be to Insist upon a
Democratic quorum. To prevent such
a move from being successful, the Dem
ocratic whips were instructed to have
every Democrat present when the vote
was taken. After prayer by the chaplain
and reading of the journal, some
intervened. The resignations of Col.
Fellows and Mr. Fitch, of New York,
who have been elected respectively dis
trict attorney and controller of New
York, were read, and the speaker also
presented the credentials of Mr. Adams,
of Pennsylvania, who has been elected
to succeed the late Mr. O'Neill.
The light then began, Mr. Boutelle,
on behalf of the Republicans, putting
forward the Hawaiian matter to antag
onize the tariff bill. Mi. McCreary,
chairman of the foreign affairs commit
tee, sought to avoid this by making an
arrangement by which Friday and Sat
urday of this week should be set aside
for the consideration of the resolution
reported by the foreign affairs commit
tee in lieu of the Ilitt and Boutelle res
olutions. Mr. Ilitt. of. the minority for
eign affairs coimrittee, was on his feet,
and as soon as Mr. McCreary had made
his proposition he stated .that. Inasmuch
as this proposition gave the Republicans
substantially what they desired, namely,
a. time fixed for debate of the Hawaiian"
matter, he would-be
Mr. Boutelle, during this colloquy,
was also on his feet, clamoring for rec
ognition, and before Mr. Ilitt had
hardly concluded his statement, he
sail: "Mr. Speaker, I desire to call up
as a question of privilege the resolution
introduced by myself, reciting that the
rights and liberties of the house have
been invaded by the executive."
Immediately a dozen Democrats
begau protesting. Mr. Bland, of Mis
souri, wanted to raise the question of
consideration, and Gen. Wheeler, of
Alaoama, demanded the regular order,
which, lie insisted, was the admission of
New Mexico. Speaker Crisp silenced
the turbulence by a few sharp raps of
tbe gavel, after which he. said he de
sired to look into the status of the reso
lution. While this question was being
examined Mr. McMill in asked incident
ally whether it would be in order to
raise the question of consideration, with
a view of going ahead with the' tariff
"Certainly," replied the speaker.
During the lull that followed Mr.
Boutelle again made a statement which
called forth
from the speaker, who informed the
gentleman from Maine, with some mani
festation of temper, that tliere was no
occasion for precipitancy. Mr. Boutelle
would not remain silent, and again the
speaker rapped him to order.
"If the gentleman will only possess
himself," said he, "the chair will try to
state the status of the resolution."
He went on to explain that the resolu
tion had gone to the committee on for
eign affairs aud had been reported back
with the recommendation that it lie on
the table, a substitute being offered in
its stead. Mr. Turner, of Georgia, made
the point that the substitute having
gone to the calendar its privilege had
been lost; but the speaker, after citing
several decisions, held that inasmuch as
the Boutelle resolution was on the
speaker's table, it had not lost its privi
lege. Mr. McMillin thereupon raised
the question of consideration against it,
and after some further wrangling the
vote was taken. The Republicans
when their names were called. While
the roll call was proceeding Chairman
Wilson came in from the house lobby
and quietly took his seat. A few sprays
of lilies of the valley lay on his desk.
Several members came up and shook
hands with him, and Mr. Richardson, of
Tennessee, who is to be chairman of
the committee of the whole during the
tariff debate, held a brief consultation
with him before the call was finished.
The vote resulted 135 to 3, the Demo
crats lacking exactly forty of a quorum.
With evidences of intense satisfac
tion the ' Republicans heard the an
nouncement, and Mr. Boutelle prompt
made the point of no quorum. The
Democrats were generally disappointed
not to muster a quorum to go ahead
with the all-important tariff bebate,
but they ' were " left no alterna-
tive, and Mr. McMillin moved a
call of the house, on which the Repub
licans responded to their names, and
the call developed the presence of 200
members. Mr. McMillin then offered a
resolution to revoke all leaves of ao
wiice, arid" instructing the aergeaut-at
arms to notify all absentees by tele
graph that public business was sus
pended aud requesting their immediate
presence. Mr. Heard, of Missouri, ex
pressed a desire to amend the resolu
tion so as to exclude from its operation
alt those detained by sickness. M. Mc-
Millin responded that he bad no Idea
that the resolution would be vigorously
enforced as regards sick members. The
vole was then taken first by tellers, and
subsequently by a yea and nay vote.
The house adjourned at 2 p. in. for lack
of a quorum.
A Dull Day at the Senate Yester
Washington, Jan. 3.— When the vice
president rapped the senate to order, at
12 o'clock today hardly a score of sen
ators were in their seats, and it was
some time later before the presence of
a quorum could have been demon
strated. The floral offerings of the
new year were not numerous. A lux
uriant bouquet adorned the desk ot Vice
President Steveusou, but he appeared
to be the only one in the senate receiv
ing this mark of favor.
Among the first appear on the floor
was Senator Hill, of New I'erk, and he
was shortly joined by Senators Voorhees
of Indiana; Allison, of lowa, and Mills,
of Texas. Immediately after the resd
of the journal Senator Blackburn, of
Kentucky, presented the credentials of
Senator Eppa Hunton, of Virginia, aud
the oath of office was administered to
the new senator.
Senator Frye, of Maine, presented a
resolution declaring that in the opinion
of the senate during the investigation
of the committee on foreign relations ot
our relations with Hawaii, there should
be no interference on the part of the
United States by moral influence or
physical force for the restoration of
Queen Liliuokalani or the maintenance
of the provisional government of the
Hawaiian islands, and that naval forces
should be used iv the islands only for
tho protection of the lives and property
of American citizens. He asked that
the resolution lie upon the table for the
present, and stated that he would later
ask its reference to the committee on
foreign relations. The resolution occa
sioned manifestations of interest and
will doubtless soon become the subject
of discussion.
Senator Hill presented a bill limiting
the effects of the regulation of com
merce between the several states and
with foreign countries.
A bill called up by Senator Pugh, of
Alabama, for the relief of certain aliens
who had acquired property in the dis
trict occasioned much discussion, as it
developed the fact that aliaens were in
competent to hold property in the Dis
trict of Columbia. Senator Harris, of
Tennessee, thought the present law
was obnoxious, and that a general bill
should be introduced permitting aliens
to hold property in . the ; district. Issue
on this poiut was promptly taken by
Senator Cockrell, of Missouri, who ap
proved the present law, and said he
hoped the time would never come when
aliens could hold property in the Dis
trict of Columbia. After some further
discussion, Senator Harris withdrew
his objections, and tho bill was passed,
it being lor the relief of David B. God
well, and legalizing his ownership of
real estate in the district. 777.'
On motion of Senator Gorman the
senate went into executive session, and
at the conclusion of the executive ses
sion adjourned.

The roll' call* showed a full attendance
of delegates, In stating the object of
the call for the convention, ; Chairman
Packer eulogized the memory of the

lutions, as read by Mr. Magee, was also

The nominations for candidates for
songressman-at-large being next it
order, ex-Attorney General Henry W.
Palmer, of Wilkesbarre, mounted the
platform and proceeded to place- the
name of Hon. Galusha A. Grow, of Sus
quehanna, before the convention. Mr.
Palmer referred to the many years of
public service of Mr. Grow, which, he
said, admirably fitted him forthe office :
to which he aspires. Jeremiah J. Sny
der, of Alleutown, named: ex-Congress
man James S. Biery, of . Lehigh. Mr.
Biery then stepped to : the front
of the platform and withdrew his name
in favor of Grow. Mr. Snyder moved
that the nomination be made by ac
clamation. Chris Magee seconded the
motion. The nomination of -Mr. Grow
was then made by acclamation, . and
Sehator Lyon, of Allegheny; Jeremiah'
Snyder, of Alleutown, and David Mar
tin, of Philadelphia, were appointed a
committee to inform him of his nomina
tion. Mr. Grow appeared before* the
convention, and was greeted with much
enthusiasm. lie ascended the platform,
and made a brief speech of acceptance.
lie denounced the tariff policy of .the
Cleveland administration; and ridiculed
its position on the Hawaiian question.
During his remarks a spectator cried
out, "Down with Paramount Blount." ;

No Longer a Factor.
QChicago, Jan. 3.— Chairman Carter,
of the Republican- national committee,
left for the East after a conference here
with patty leaders regarding next fall's
congressional elections. In au inter
view Mr. Carter said: .... ".•''-7-7-

where the districts are located."
He said the Republican party favored

dismissed the People's party as no
longer a factor in national politics.

Licked Up by the Tongue of the
Fire Demon — Western Union
Telegraph Company Loses All
Its Instruments — Chamber of
Commerce. Large ..levator and
Other Buildings Destroyed.
Toledo, 0., Jan. 3.— Fire this even
ing caused a loss of nearly a million
dollars. It broke out a few minutes
after 0* o'clock in the elevator of F. N.
Quale & Co., on the river, fronting on
Madison and Water streets. The cause
is unknown. An explosion of dust
caused a general alarm. The elevator,
with its contents, was entirely de
stroyed. A strong northwest wind car
ried the flames across Madison street to
the elevator and business block of C. A.
King & Co., which is also a total loss.
The flames also spread westward across
Water street to the rear of a large five
story business block, known as the
Chamber of Commerce building, owned
by lion. T. S. Brown, and occupied by
the Western Union Telegraph company,
the American District company and a
large number of offices, which were also
destroyed. From this the flames spread
south to the next building, five stories
high, occupied as a . museum
and theater, known as " Wonderland,'"
managed by C. H. Moore. This was
gutted by the flames within a few min
utes. The next building southward
was the wholesale drug house of West
& Truax, which is also a total loss. A
strong fire wall checked the flames In
this direction. To the west tliey leaped
across Summit street, the chief retail
street of the city, injuring the Hartford
block, but the fire was here checked
without great damage. In the rear of
this building is the office of the Postal
Telegtaph company, the *nana_er of
which removed alt th. apparatus pos
sible, thus cutting off all telegraphic
communication for a time, as the West
ern Union office and instruments were
destroyed in toto. A two-story block on
the northwest corner of Water aud
Madison streets, diagonally across from
the Quale elevator, was also destroyed.
The losses so far ascertained are as fol
lows: "- '■'■•»'
F.N. Quale & Co., loss on elevator
building, $50,000, fully insured, as also
all grain in store; C. A. King & Co.,

loss will reach nearly a. million, as esti
mated tonight. 7:777;
Owing to the high wind help was re
quested from the nearest cities and re
sponded to promptly by Cleveland. De"
troit and Adrian. The two latter
reached the city before the fire was uu
der control and rendered efficient
service. There were fortunately no fa
talities, though Capt. Frazier, of Com
pany No. 1, was overcome by smoke and
reported killed, but he is all right. T ins
is the* largest fire which has visited
Toledo for the past twenty years. -

The Great, Northern Steamer
Launched at Cleveland. ...y*,;.
Duf/iJTH, Minn., "Jan. 3.— There was
launched at • Cleveland ' today the
finest merchant steamship ever r turned,
out of an American shipyard, on salt or
fresh water, and, most appropriate^
she is to be named '"North America."
The vessel is . the 7: first ''of a passe
fleet building to the' order of the Great
Northern railway, that is designed to
revolutionize the travel the"*" Great
lakes. * For years the* freight traffic of
the Northern lakes has been carried on
better arid better ships, until now : these
boats are in every point the peer, if
not the superior, of the freight carriers
of any other 7, nation. or v waters.
But the passenger fleet did not ad*
vance; the boats built in the early *70s
were deemed good enough, and for the
long trip between the head of Lake Su
perior and the foot' or Lake Erie, boats
making the run in five days, accommo
dating comfortably scarcely more than
100 passengers, and carried on in the
methods, of .years" ago, have been the
best to be had. The North America
and her consort, the Northwest, which j
will be launched in a few weeks, are ■
383 ftet long, 44 feet wide and- 26 feet'
deep. They will have accommodation
for about GOO passengers, halt first-class
and half emigrant. The vessels; are as ;
thoroughly American as the new inter

Hastings, Neb., Jan. 3.— After a
rather sharp contest the factions of - tbe
Farmers'' Alliance succeeded iv making
a compromise today by .which the . offi
cers were divided 1 among the vouug ele
ment 'and the "old-timers." .'. John 11.
Powers, who has been president for
years, was turned down, and Allen Rott,
who has long been a feature ot Alliance
work in Nebraska, was removed from
the executive committee. The work of
reorganizing the Alliance in Nebraska
was begun. Before the session ad
journed a list of resolutions declar
atory of the order's principles was
adopted. ' In the first, free coinage
of silver and gold at 16 to 1 and an un
limited issue of treasury notes is de
manded. Two paragraphs are devoted
to state issues, and then Secretary Mor
ton is -given a turn on the spit. His re
tention in office is said to be an insult
to the entire farming community. The
secretary of the Alliance will send a
copy oi the resolution to President
Cleveland and Secretary . Morton. The
South Carolina plan is indorsed for
dealing with the , liquor question. The
concluding plan's is devoted to deplor
ing -the action of the United States
court in enjoining the labor leaders
from ordering a strike. It is regarded
as a blow at free speech. A conference

Got. -jewelling Wants to Drop
the Lease Controversy.
i Topeka, Kan., Jan. 3.— Gov. Lewell
ing returned from Leavenworth today,
and upon his arrival at his office im
mediately went : into executive "session
| with Frank Doster on Mrs. Leaie
case. His front office, was besieged,
and after -numerous requests for an
audience he sent out the following:
7 • "This talk about Mrs. Lease and Gov.
Lewelling is getting to be a chestnut.
The people don't-care very much about
individuals. No man or woman is
erea'er than the party he represents,
i and Populists in particular are looking
for good government more than to up
hold any man or "woman. Half that is
published about current politics in Kan
sas is false, and made from whole cloth.
Now the statement * that au armistice .
had been declared, or any kind of . an .
understanding arrived at between Mrs.
Lease and myself is falsehood No. 1.
! The numerous reasons assigned for :
[ her removal are . batch No. 2. ' That I
had telegraphed a member of the Fed
eration of Labor jto come to To-
I peka so we could go to Leavenworth
to influence the action of the federation
for or against anybody's interest is
falsehood No. 3. The statement that
Mrs. Lease has employed Judge Doster
is lie No. 4. Lies are too abundant;
life is too short. Who goes up or who
goes down in politics makes very little
difference if the heaven-inspired princi
ples of truth still go marching forward.
The lender "of today is 'the follower of
tomorrow. The pilot i 3 easily replaced;
the ship Is the same and moves on."
F. J. Close, the governor's private sec
retary, declares, positively that J. W.
Freeborn appeared :at the meeting of
the state. board of charities at Oiathe
and was duly installed as a member. •
He says Mrs. Lease was ousted, and that
the board was reorganized . by the elec
tion of". M. A. Householder to succeed
Mrs. Lease as president. This done.
Carter was. removed, from the superiu
teudeucy of the deaf and dumb asylum.

unswerving iv his allegiance to

his independence of. political parties,

question which ranks him with Mrs.
■ Lease and other prominent Populists..
A sermon which he delivered last Sun

the Scriptures, "How old art thou?"
i he. said: - "The ' life of a uation is

McMillin Outlines the Salient
Features of the Bill —No
Trouble in Collecting the Tax,
and Impossible to Tax a Man'
Twice" — More Men Driving
Drays Than Receiving In
Washington. Jan. 3.— Representative
McMillin, chairman of the. subcommit
tee in charge of the internal revenue 1
feature ot the tariff bill, outlined to an
Associated Press reporter today the
salient feature of the income tax meas
ure, which he expects to complete iv a
day or two. lie said: ': [?:] C
"The corporation part of the measure
will not require an inquisition on every
individual to determine what amount of
corporate stock he holds, but the assess
ment will be made against anil paid by
the corporations in the first instance,
and hence a man holding corporate
stock will not be worried by assessors
until he is subject to an individual in
come tax. The corporation will pay the
tax of each of its incorporators,
and will in turn charge it
up against them. But they
prevent taxing a man twice. If a cor
poration pays for an incorporator on the
dividends he would derive, he in turn
is accredited with that amount in as
sessing his general income for taxatiou.
As to foreigners and foreign associa
tions holding interest-bearing securities
in this country, they will be assessed
the same as our own citizens. It will
not be necessary to go abroad in order
to ascertain these investments, as the
assessment against the corporation will
cover all of its stockholders, foreign as
well as domestic. The collect-on of the
tax will be in the hands of the internal
revenue bureau. It will not necessitate
the appointment of new tax collectors
In the various states, but a few addi
tional assessors and deputies will be
required to work under the present
levenue collectors. It should be under
stood that the tax will be confined to
about 85,003 people, according to esti
mates furnished me by the treasury de
partment; so that no large force will be
necessary to keep track of such a com
paratively small class. • The individuals
taxed will number uot more than one
third as many men as were taxed under
the old Income tax law." 77
Mr. McMillin says the bill will pro
vide means for compelling disclosures
as to incomes, somewhat similar to the
methods used by ■ :ver_.. cl the states.
He says the penalties for failing to re
port have not yet been fixed.
Representative Jerry Simpson said
that the Populist section ' of congress
would solidly support tlie income : tax
plan. 1 ;' He regarded it as opening way
to free trade, saying' that a revenue tar
iff will be necessary long as revenues
are not raised,. from incomes or some
other source. Mr. Simpson, asserted
that the plan, will be immensely popu
lar with the masses . ■_ * ;7 '.„":' 7
Representative Tarsney, one of the
members of the ways and means com
mittee, who voted for the income tax,
today -met -the. objection that tremen
dous opposition would come from the
class receiving the incomes with the
laconic remark: "There are more men
driving drays than 'receiving incomes."
Agle Wins in His Damage Suit
7 ' : Against the Omaha. ; T*;
: .Washington,' Jan. '. 3.— The -United
States supreme court reassembled today
for the first time after the holiday recess,
I and handed dowu a number of minor
decisions. One of these was the action
of Horatio G. Agle against the Chicago,
St. Paul Minneapolis & Omaha railroad.
Angle had a contract to build a section
of i ail road for the Portage railroad, but
was hampered in doing the work by the
C.St.P. M. & O. railroad, which was de
sirous of constructing the Portage road.
Agle finally abandoned the contraband

damages for interfering with his work.
The lower court failed to sustain his
claim, but the supreme court today re
versed the judgment below for the C,
Si. P., M. & O. railroad, holding that
they had so harassed -Agle that he was
entitled to damages. : . . .
Famous Smith, an Indian condemned
to death for the murder of another In

favorable action on his appeal, " the

An Agreement Should Be Made
Before Season Opens.
Washington. Jan. 3.— The secretary
of state and the British ambassador are
pursuing negotiations for an agreement
upon regulations to police Behring sea.
It is important that these regulations
should be agreed upon before the open
ing of the sealing season. The formali
ties to be gone through between the two
governments will inevitably consume
much time. The. navy department is
apprehending some embarrassment in
supplying sufficient vessels of the small
class required to do the work of patrol
ling the territory designated by the
tribunal at Paris. When it was fonnd
necessary to police Behring sea before,
the treasury department had to be
called upon for revenue cutters to aid in
the work temporarily. They cai. nut
well be spare i for permanent use in
that work. No active steps have been
taken toward the preparation of a patrol
fleet. '•'.:'.-

Darin**: Desperadoes Loot an
Illinois Town Bank.
Secured and No Trace Left
of the Thieves.
Come to Grief and Blows in
St Louis.
Bei.videre, Ills., Jan. 3.— One of the
boldest and most daring pieces of safe
blowing and bank robbing ever perpe
trated in Northern Illinois was com
mitted at the little town of Franklin
Grove, in Lee counry, some time last
night, by which the Franklin Grove
bank, operating under the state laws,
was looted of nearly "*35,000 in cash and
valuable papers. The robbers, after
completing their clever job, got
out of town as quietly as they
came and left no trace behind by which
their identity can easily be discovered.
Nothing was known ol the robbery until
the bank officials came down to open
the concern for business this morning.
On entering the bank they were startled
to find the vault doors open, papers
strewn about the floor and everything
in general confusion. The re
port of the bold robbery quickly
spread about the ordinarily quiet little
village, and all kinds of rumors were
afloat as to the amount the bank had
been plundered out of. The bank offi
cials at once closed the doors and re
fused to make a statement as to the
amount of their loss. They immediately
wired to Chicago for detectives to
be planed ou the case, aud, uutil
they have investigated the matter,
will firmly refuse to make a state
ment to the public. The bank is
me of the most solid of its kind in this
section, however, and is the despository
for many of the" wealthy farmers of Leo
county. The deposits, averaging over
*?50,0J0, are heavier than that of late.
Those in a position to know say the loss
is nearly J35.000. The robbers took
everything in the safe which was inside
the vault. No one in the village heard
the report when the safe was blown
open, and, as the town has no police,
the robbers easily got away with the
plunder. The. greatest of excitement
prevails. -./" .v-7'.;7

To Wreck and Rob a Train in
Kansas City, Jan. 3.— A dispatch .a
the Journal from Coffey ville, Kan., say!
a dastardly attempt was made last night
to wreck Passenger Train No. -■*:'. or
the Missouri. Pacific, which leave!
this city at 10 o'clock. _?.
frightful wreck and great loss of life wai
narrowly averted. The train consisted
of mail and express cars, smoker, on*
coach and one chair car. The trail
had barely gotten under head
way when it was discovered thai
one rail had been removed right at tin
approach of the twenty-foot tresth
crossing a small creek, one mill
west of this city. The engineer quick!"
reversed his engine and both he and tuu
fireman jumped. The trestle is 100 fee
long. The engine kept straight on it,
course until it reached the other side ol
the trestle and a catastrophe wa;
prevented only by the heavy
guard rail. The marks on tin
ends of the trestle show , thai
the wheels had run within three inched
of the edge of the ties. All the passeiv
gers returned to this city, a wrecking
traiu was sent out to place the train on
the track. The persons who perpetrated
the hellish deed evidently did so wit
robbery and murder as the object. 1*
is thought that the attempted wreck
was the work of outlaws who expected
to throw the train off the trust le, rob
the mail, express cars and the passeu ;
gers. A posse has started in pursuit o;
the bandits, but could not overtak**,
them.' Two young men were arrested
