WASHINGTON.Jun 9—The house
and senate today reached agreemnt
on th naval appropriation bill and the
Indian appropriation bill. The sundr
civil appropriation "bill Is the only
important measure yet remaining to
be acted upon . Chairman Dingley
says that the chances are favorable
for an adjournment tomorow.
They Will be Menaced by American
Washington, June 9. Chairman Dingley,
ef the house ways and means committee,
to day made a report on the menace to
American manufacturers by the threatened
invasion of the cheap products of Oriental
labor and upon the effect of the difference
of exchange between gold standard and
silver standard countries upon United
States manufacturing and agriculture,
these questions having been Investigated
by the committee. The report says the
sudden awakening of Japan from the Ori
ental slumber of centuries is being follow
ed by an equally rapid Westernizing of
her methods of industry; that while the
Japanese do not have the Inventive facul
ty of Americans or even Europeans
their Initiative faculties are wonderful.
Their standard of living would be regarded
as practical starvation by the workman of
the United States, and hours of labor av
erage twelve a day.
Such skilled workmen as blacksmiths,
carpenters, masor.s, compositors, tailors
and plasterers receive in Japanese cities
only from 26 to 33 cents and factory oper
atives 5 to 20 cents per dny In our money
and nearly double those sums In Japan
ese silver money, while farm hands re
ceive $1.44 per mont -. Europeans and
Americans, says Mr. Dingley, are recogni
zing the profitable field afforded for in
vestments and factories.
Japan is now only exporting che.ip silk
fabrics and handkerchiefs, but it is be
lieved that it will soon become, owing t*
the low cost of labor, a more serions com
petitor In our markets than any other
The committee recommends the Imposi
tion of duties on competing goods equiva
lent to the difference of cost and distri
bution. An argument for this policy is
that it will accomplish a double purpose,
the collection of revenue to support the
government and the placing of competl
tion In our markets on the basis of our
higher wages.
The Gold and Silver Standard*).
As to whether the fact that one Dol
lar of this country or the silver purchased
by this dollar will exchange for nearly
two Japanese Yen (dollors) gives the man
ufacturer of cotton for example, In Japan,
an Advantage additional to that caused
by the conditions already discussed In the
markets of this country, Mr. Dlngley
says: "Clearly the manufacturer In
Japan is In this respect at a disadvantage
for his cotton comes largely from the U.
S., and he innst pay not only the freight,
but addit.onal charges for the risks of
the fluctuations of each and resulting
from the fact that Japan does not have
the monetary standard or the commercial
world. He obtains no advantage by the
sale of his goods in the terms of a more
valuable currency, but on the contrary
loses something by this brokerage. The
only way in which he can obtain any
advantage must be through the failure of
the wages of labor In japan to rise as
much as the yen has depended in its
relative value to gold since 1873 while
wages In the U. S. since 1873 have doubled
as estimated In silver,- and have even
risen 15 per cent as estimated in gold.
Manufacturing wages la the U. S.
are 2~> per cent higher in purchasing
power than a quarted of a century ago
The labor cost of production in Japan has
largely diminished, while the lagor cost
of production In the United States has
been increased except as counteracted by
a large lies of labor saving devices. It
is claimed, however, notwithstanding
that the wages of the Japanese labor
have not raised as much ns the yen
.Inpan has beon* depreciated as compored
with gold, yet that his wages will still
buy as many Japanese products as they
would 23 years ago. Yet, it is evident
that so far as the Japanese people con
sume foreign products their own products
or In their own money as they would pay
if they were not on a sliver basls-a fact
which clearly diminishes the purchasing
power of Japanese wages one-half, so
far as the Japanese consume foreign

Delegate Catron'B Reason's "Why
the Territory Should Be Admitted.
Washington, June 9.—Delegate Cation
of New Mexico has reported to the
house the territories committee the bill
for the admission.of that territory to the
sisterhood of states. Accompanying
the bill is a report submitting reasons
wwhy New Mexico should be admitted
into the union. This report reviews the
financial condition of the territory,
speaks of its resources, based on fig
ures of the lust census, assumes that
the population is not less than 200,000,
and recalls that as far back as the
Forty-third cor^sress a bill for admis
sion passed both houses. The senate,
noisvftver, made amendments to the bill
at th»» tin:e snd it reached the house too
late in the session to secure action on
the Amendment.
Tho report declaras that the people
desire statehood, and »hs territory has
l.t-rsisteni'.y 6oirikn<led !t: says the pas
■r.g? of ih° bill I? 4?manded by both po-

adverse circumstances, subjected to the
incursions of hostile Indians, until a
comparatively recent date, and with for
eign capital forbidden to invest in real
property in the territory, continues the
report, has shown the world a capacity
to progress, and she has advanced much
faster than the average ratio of prog
ress In the United States in every ma
terial particular, since annexation. It
is confidently submitted that New Mex
ico has resources sufficient to guarantee
a stable and substantial state.
Five members of the committee have
united in a minority report opposed to
the passage of the bill. Apart from the
general objection to the admission of
territory as a state is, the minority says,
the specific objection to the pending
bill, that it provides for the election of
a member of congress.state officers, and
legislature, which shall two United
States senators before the adoption of a
constitution, the organization of a state
government and the determination of
the rights of citizenship and suffrage
under the organic law. The growth of
the population of New Mexico in num
bers has not been, in the minority opin
ion, such as togive promise of any great
increase in the future. The report also
asserts that if the power of the general
government were removed it Is almost
certain the territory would invite the
lawless and depraved, and it would be
impossible to execute the law.
And when it is further considered
that the people themselves are not ho
mogenous, but are made up of Mexi
cans, Indians, half-breeds, and the bal
ance Americans in abodfc equal propor
tions, it would not even be certain that
would make wise laws, or would or
enforce them if they were made.
The minority also say that undoubt
edly the events of the past few years
have called the attention of the Ameri
can people to the senate and to the rep
resentation in that body of. the states
irrespective of their populations. Any
step which adds to the membership of
that body, so influential in legislation,
it declares, should be taken with the
greatest care and deliberation.
Another Man Appointed Poatmnn
ter nt Sioux Fall*.
Washington, Special, June 9.—The ap
pointment of Axel S. Ellis as postmaster at
S'oux Falls, sent to the senate to-day, adds
a new complication to»the long fight over
that office. The office is at present held by
A. D. Tinsley. who is acting under a re
cess commission. It will be remembered.
that Mr. Tinsley was first named for this
office In the winter of 1894. Senator Pet
tigrew claimed that courtesy demanded that
he be allowed something to say about the
postmaster in his own city ?SV. S. Blssoll
was then postmaster general, 'iwd he main
tained that Senator I'ettigrew had said the
appointment of T'asley would be satisfac
tory to him.
This statement Senator Pettlg.'ew denied,
and the question of veracity between the
senator aud the postmaster general was
squarely raised. &ettigi#ew succeeded in
preventing Tinsley's confirmation during the
long session of the last congress, in spite
of Senator Kyle's efforts to secure confirm
ation. After the adjournment of that ses
sion, Tlnsley was g.von a recess appoint
ment and took possession of the office. His
name was sent in agaia to the short ses
sion of the last congress The administra
tion waited until after adjournment and
then gave Tinsley another recess commit-,
The law provides that these commissions
shall only be god until the adjournment
of the session of the senate next succeed
ing. «nd as this session has drawn to a
close and Tineley's name has not been sent
to the senate, there has been a god deal
of speculation as to what course the ad
ministration intended to pursue. It has
been rumored within a few days that the
session would be allowed to close and that
Tiusloy's commission would then be re
newed, thus defeating the purpose of the
lawwhlch gives the senate the power Of
confirmation. This surmise was today re
solved in the negative by the appointment
of Ellis. It is, however, probably too late
to secure the confirmation of Ellis at this
session, and after adjournment a recess
commission will have to be issued to Home
body, and the question now is, will it be
Tiusloy or Ellis.

CHATTANOOGA, Term., June 9.—
At 10 o'clock this morning a tornado
of unusual severity struck the town of
Wythe City, about 30 miles from Gads
den, in Northern Alabama. The torna
do made its appearance in the usual
funnel-shaped cloud in the southeast
and carried all before it. Thirteen
houses have been literally blown from
the face of the earth, but only two
deaths, Ed Long and a negro woman,
have been reported. A hundred or
more persons are injured. Many of
them are being taken care of at Gun
thersville, Gadsden, and other neigh
boring towns. The basket factory,
where the greater portion of the in
habitants of the town work, was just
out ojc the storm's path. Had it
come an hour latejf when the operatives
would have been 'at home, the loss of
life would have J>een very heavy. A
relief committee is now at work.
Of five of the. structures, could be
found but smalV pieces of kindling
wood. Trees as }arge as two feet in
diameter were cut like weeds and total
devastation followed it. Immediately
after the funnel-shaped cyclone passed
off the work of rescue was commenced, j
and at this time it is known that Kd
Long and an unknown colored woman
were killed. 3SwHety-five people were
seriously injured vand six of them are
; reported dying. A Mrs. Ricketts and a i
; man named Buncfaey are among those |
filly hurt» A ken-yer-old lad was j
found half a mile, away in dying con
dition. The cyclone lasted five min
utes and passed toward the northeast.

Secretary Cox Says There Is No

St Louis, June 9—James Cox.secre
tary of the Business Men's League.de
nied emphatically that the negroes
were being discriminated against.
He said that Committeeman Hill of
Mississippi had no right to comolain

letter had beenwritten \v »ifrri more
than a month ago.telling hin~» iat un

In these letterls.the Business Men's

Hilulu and the Mississippi delegation.
He dM Hot replpy to this.
'Furthermore',coomtinued Mr Cox,
'Mr Hill has not been to see us since
he came to the cityp.lf hewill come
here,we will find him good rooms and.
All this talk about the color line is
nonsense.We made the promise to take
care of the colored delegates and will
do it.lf they refuse to come and let us
know they desire lodgings.then the
fault Is not ours.'
St. Louis, June 9-No solution of the
puzzling puestion as to what shall
be done with the negro delegates to
the national convention has been
found. The proprietors of the lead
ing hotels deny that they have refused
to entertain colered men, but saytheir
rooms are all"engaged" and that th?y
much as they cannot accomadate the
negroes, much as they might wish. A
large number of national committee
men arrived this morning, but they
were reticent, about giving their views
regarding the treatment of the negroes
dy the St.Louis hotel and doarding house
and boarding house keepers.
M. H. De Young, of San Francisco,
owner and editor of the Chronicle, of
that city, and a member of the nation
al committee said it was not a part of
of the duty of the committee to secure
hotel accomadations for any delegates,
either white or black. He would ap
pose any effort to bring the matter be
fore the committee.
National Committeeman James Hill
of Missippii, a negro, thought he had
secured rooms at Hurst's hotel, but
when he returned there last evening
from the headquarters of the Merchants
Republican League club, he found the
doors barred against him, as it were.
He was informed that the clerk had
made a mistake in assigning him a
room, every room in the hotel having
been previously engaged. Mr. Hill took
in the situation at once. He quietly paid
his bill, and took a street car for the
home of William P. Dye, He is still
there, and will continue to make that
place his headquarters until the close
of the convention, in the event that
the Business Men's League does not
succeed in opening a hotel for him.
St. Louis, June 9. - Sergeant-at-Arms
Byrneß and his first assistant, G. N. Wiswell,
of Milwaukee, who arrived yesterday, vis
ited the convention auditorium today and
decided upon a number of details, such as
the stationing of inside doorkeepers and as
sistant sergeants-at-arms and distributing
the force of ushers and pages. Four doorkeep
ers will be stationed at every dor, two outside
to inspect the tickets as the crowd passes
through and two inside to tear off the cou
pons. In this way the crowd can be handled
Each division will have four ushers and
they are to seat all comers, or. at least, in
spect their tickets.There are forty divisions in
the dress circle and gallery, making a fore*
there of 160 ushers. The space for the dele
gates, alternates, national committee-men,
newspaper workers and prominent guest 3 has
eleven divisions and each will be provided
with four ushers. Then there w'll be a small
army of pages and several hundred sergeants
at-arms. Chief Harrigan has promised Col.
Byrnes a couple of hundred policemen,who
will be ready to lend assistance if called on.
They are to take no part in disputes until
requested to by one or more of the Col
onel's assistants. A god many of the po
licemen will be attired as private citizens
and known only to the convention officials
and employes.
The work of the decorator of the auditorium
Is about finished. The portraits of General

FRANKFORT, KY.. June »-Gov. Bradley
has donned his fighting clothes, and to-mor
row an Interview, probably supplemented by
some documents, will be given out for publU
cation by the Kentucky candidate for th«
presidency. When It was stated several days
ago that Gov. Bradley had not withdrawn
from the presidential race and had not autho
rized an>one to withdraw his name, the sen:l
ments of the governor were voiced to the let
ter, and the Interview Oov. Bradley will au
thorze tomorrow wll not only verify this state
ment, but will probably have an imporant ef
fect upon the campaign now In progress be
tween the aspirants for the nomination. Sev
eral dayts ago statements were sent out from
Washington, which originated In McKlnlejl
circles, to the effect that Oov. Bradley wrote
MaJ. McKinley while he was at Thoraasville
.Ga., on his Southern tour two years ago. ask
ing his advice as to what currency position ha
should take and Intimating that he(Bradley)
was favorable to free silver. i

"s"ered, Bradley advising him to come out
thu m ?. money The governor will touch on
i?it * .i."? 1" ln hls intwvlew. When I. \n
stated that two sets of Ohio letters are in tha
govenor s possession and also Inner* from
other presidential candidates on the currency
question, who were asked for advice at the
time Bradley wrote McKinley at Thoraas
vllle, Interest of a national character *wiII be
created. The letters from McKinley will not
be published ln the interview, as they are
confidential, but Bradley evidently believes
that he would be Justified In publishing th. n
since his letter to McKinley has ben given,
out by the McKintoy managers at Washing
ton. While the governor does not feel that
he can honorably say what the McKinlry let
ter contains, he will state ln his interview
what It does not say. I
Tere ase not less than five letters in gov
ernor Bradley's possession from president*
lal aspirants written about the samp time of
the Thomasville letter, and It Is more than
probable that two of these letters will be used
in the interview.
It was Gov. Bradley's Intention to give mil
the statnu>nt to-night, but he concluded
to hold a consultation with several Rep
ublican leaders before publishing it. Th«
latent Bradley intervieu will be redhot
andsomewhat sensational. It has )>>-.-n
alleged thar Gov. Bradley reconsidered
his alleged withdrawal on the receipt
i of telegrams from l'Utt, Quay and com
"Have you authorized any Interviewing
tended to be constructed as a withdrawal 1'
I was asked of Gov. Bradley.
"I have not." he replied.
"Did you receive any telegrams from
Plat, Quay or Morton pertaining to youi
alleged withdrawal."
"I did not'" was the emphatic reply.
The Bradley Interview la being carefully
! prepared, and is expected to create a na
tional commotion.
Why The Colored Delegates Are Mak

ST. LOUIS, Mo.. June the «ol
or line trouble the Republic In the morning
will say: From present Indications It may be
come necessary for the business men's league
to hir a small hall in which to lodge the imkio
delegates who neglected to engage rooms In
advance. All the hotels are full save one.
and the colored men who have viewed the
quarters provided for them In that building
are disposed to kick because there i" not hut
and cold water running ln every room. The
trouble with the colored men Is that they
will be satisfied with nothing less than a
parlor room on the first floor, with a
white fan hw! nging and a music box under
the folding bed. •
Judge Long, of Florida, waa offered ac
commodations for his colored delegates In
the Mona house, a small hotel on Sixth Str.
The proprietor refused to make a contract
for less than five days, and Suite Long
wanted to limit the indebtedness for room*
to three days with an option on additional
time should the convention last longer. The
cenfidence of the proprietor In a McKinley
walk-over did not extent! far enough to allow
him to recede from hl« rule to let nn n^.m
outfor less than five days, and the judge was
forced to seek other aocomadatlons.

their rooms are already engaged by white men

they absolutely refuse to alter their nrraitfce
