OF THE CITY OF ST. PAUL. VOL. XXIV.-NO. 50. Minn DISCUSSED SHIPS, POSTAL appro- PRIATiOXS AXD THE MILITARY ACADEMY BILL SENATOR DANIEL HAS HIS SAY PROVISION IX THE LATTER BILL AGAIXST HAZIXG WORSE THAN HAZING ITSELF DAYS WORK IN THE HOUSE Bill Passed Appropriating; $T>,000, -000 to Aid the St. Lout* Lonisi inin I'niflinse Centennial - . Exposition In 1003.. WASHINGTON; Feb. 19.—Only a few ci nators being in the chamber when the senate convened today, Mr. T'tttigrew BUKgvsted the absence of a quorum. For ty-live senators, a quorum, responded. In pursuance of previous notice, Mr. Pettus (Ala.) then addressed the senate In opposition to the ship subsidy bill. Referring to former Senator Edmunds. reputed to be the author of the original subsidy bill, Mr. Pettus said that the dis tinguished Vermonter had demonstrated nis ability to cipher .-.round the truth. He thought the provisions of the measure justified him in saying that Mr. Edmunds "as a senator of the I'nited States, could never have written this bill." Mr. Pett.is urged that the bill ought not to be pa-_<s ed, not only because of the millions it would draw from the treasury, but also because of the principles involved. H« made a constitutional argument against x' 1 c measure. Mr. Pett.is l.icened the beneficiaries un der the subsidy bill to two attorneys who had won in the courts by question able methods a noted ease involving a large amount of cotton. As the f*o were dividing the $",000 fee, one of them re marked gravely: "We are not in danger of going to the 1 r house, but are we not rubbing up against the w.ills of the penitentiary?" "The beneficiaries of this bill,"' s.iid Mr. Pettus, "will never be in clanger of the poor house." (Laughter.) POSTAL BILL. The postal appropriation bill then waa taken up, on motion of Mr. Woleott, chairman of the committee on postofficei, ami post roads. As reported by tj:e sen ate committee, the bill carried $124,308 088. Explaining the committee amendment ap propriating $400,000 for the extontion of the transportation of mail by the pneu matic tube By stem, Mr. Woleott said the provision was practically the same as that proposed in the last session of con. grets. except that it provided for the continuation of contracts for pneumatic tube service, which, by limitation expires on July 1 next. Personally, he was op posed to the provision and lie asked, therefore, that one of the advocates of tin provision take charge of it. Mr. Allison made a point of order against the provision, that it was st-ncral legislation on an appropriation bill. The chair (.Mr. Beveridge) lulJ the Pjint veil taken. Mr. Mason made an appeal to Mr. Alli eoii to withdraw his point of order against it. Mr. Allison replied that he had had op portunity to investigate the subject and he was satisfied the time was not ripe for pneumatic tube legislation. Mr. Mason contended that the point of order was unjust and unfair. Its immed iate effect, he said, would be to deprive Chicago of the same mail facilities as are enjoyed by the people of New York, Philadelphia and Boston. Mr. Chandler. Mr. Mason and Mr.Cullom advocated the amendment, while Mr. A ii. pon and Mr. Pettigrew antagonize! it. Finally by unanimous consent the entire questio.n, including the point of order, went ..vtr until tomorrow. Mr. Butler (N. C.) offered an amend ment reducing the sum appropriation for inland transportation of mail, by railroad routes from $31,700,000 to $32,000,000, and authorizing the postmaster general to re adjust the cost of carrying the mails over railroad routes and reduce it at least 5 per cent below the figures i.aid at present. rI he- bill was then laid aside for the day. The Louisiana purchase exposition bill, • 1 by the house, was laid befo:f the s< nate and referred. DANIEL. ON WEST POINT. Mr. SeweU (N. J.) called up the confer ence report on the military academy ap propriation bill. Mr. Daniel (Va.) in qulred if the measure, as agreed upon by the conferees, provided that a cadet convicted of hazing should be debarred from holding a commission in the United States army, navy or marine corps. Mr. Bewell replied tiiat such a provis ion )'■■•<] been embodied in the bill as it passed the senate, and it was in ttio measure as agreed upon in conference. Mr. Daniel protested against such ac* t;.>n by congress, declaring that to enact "such an extreme and cruel provision"' would be worse than the offense of haz • ing itself. "II is an extreme and gross invasion of personal rights," said he, "to which I could never give my assent." JI *- said It would cause the good sens;* of the country to revolt and would be a Btain upon the statute books. He would not vote for any bill, or for any confer ence report that meted out so cruel and life-long a punishment for an offense thai might be committed in the thought lessness of youth. He declared his in tention of insisting that the provision should be stricken from the report. The report went over until tomorrow. At 5:50, on motion of Mr. Wolcott, the senate went into executive session, and tit U o'clock adjourned. IN THE HOUSE. This was suspension day in the house. The local committee from St. Louis who are lure pushing the St. Louis exposi tion bill were in the gallery in anticipa tion of action upon the hill in the courss of the day. A delegation from the \V. «'. T. U., who are interested in having thi» bill amended so as to provide for the closing of the exposition on Sunday and to prohibit the sale of liquors on the grounds, also were in the gallery watch ing the light. Immediately after the reading of the journal, Mr. Tawney (Mir.n.), chairman of the special com mittee on the Louisiana purchase expo sition, moved the passage, under sus pension of ilk- rules, of the bill appro priating $5,0o;>,000 for the exposition. The biH passed the hou.se under sus pension of the rules by a vote of 191 to 4i. The opposition was hopelessly in the minority ami the struggle upon the bill v.as brief. The question of closing the exposition on Sunday was not mentioned during the debate. The bill to define the word "conspiracy." in the Sherman anti trust law to avoid the possibility of its b( Ing held applicable to labor organiza tions, was defeated by a two-thirds vote on account of two amendments which the judiciary committee placed upon the toiil and which were opposed by the labor organizations. The sundry civil bill was under consideration late in ihe day, and Mr. Cannon, chairman of the appropria- Contiuoed on Sixth I'age. THE ST. PAUL GLOBE FEELING IN RUSSIA. I'RESS DOBS NOT IXDORSE M. DE WITTE'S STAND. ST. PKTERSBI'RG, Feb. 18.—The cor resp' ndent here of the Associated Press is informed that the Americans of St. Petersburg regard the attitude, of tho Russian people and press as extremely gratifying and as a prognostication of a speedy settlement of the commercial dif ferences, or at all events a guarantee against worse results. The press is en tirely dispassionate, evidently regard ing the reprisal as not proportioned to the injury Russia sustained. There are some who think M. De Witte struck overhastily and angrily and believe a reaction or a modification is possible. The Americans emphasize the necessity for patience since the matter must ad just itself mutually and in a tolerant manner when he supreme court decides, no matter how the decision falls. An article in the Boersen Zeitung is practically gratifying, as an indication that commercial circles would welcome a settlement not disturbing to American commerce. It says: "German intrigue is responbile. Secretary Gage could not have done otherwise." The Rossiya thinks Secretary Gage is taking revenge for the closure of the open port of Vladovistock. No papers positively approve of repris als. The St. Petersburg bourse is un usually depressed and anxious over the financial situation. Mr. H. J. Hagerman, second secretary of the United States embassy, has sent in his resignation on account of personal affairs. He is popular and has tilled his post satisfactorily for nearly three years. SHOT HER SWEETHEART LOVELORN KANSAS MAIDEN USES A REVOLVER. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Feb. 18.—Katli erine Davis, a comely looking woman, twenty-two years .of age, went to Dr. J. F. Doyle's drug store, in East Fifteenth street, today and shot . Fay Doyle, the proprietor's son, causing a dangerous wound. At the police station Miss Davis said: "I wanted to kill myself, and I went there to say that 1 did not care to live, but the revolver caught in my pocket and he got the bitljet 1 intended for myself. 1 hope he is not badly hurt." The relatives of the wounded man pay that the woman attempted to shoot Doyle about a week ago, and that they will prosecute her. They had been keeping conyiany and quarreled. Miss Da\is was born in California. She came to Kansas* City four years ago, and has worked in a wholesale drug house here. She says she is a profes sional nurse. Doyle is twenty-eight years of age and prominent. ENVOYS ARE INSISTENT CHINESE REPLY IS NOT SATISFAC TORY TO MINISTERS AT PEKIN.

ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. IS.—There is no foundation for the report circulate 1 in the United States that seven students would be publicly hanged in Kieff as a warning to others not to participate in political agitation. The nearest recent approach to a whole sale execution was when seven gypsies, convicted of murder, were sentenced to be hanged at Kiarffov. All of them, however, were pardoned. WINTRY IN FRANCE.

TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 19, 1901.—TEN PAGES. NO 1 IS ill BRITISn FOREIGN OFFICE DENIES TALE OF HUGE GERHAS EX- PEDITIOX IN CHINA WHOLE SUBJECT IS DISCUSSED LORD CHAMWIJiM: GIVES THE HI - MANS A BETTER NAME THAN THEY HAVE HAD BRITISH INTEREST IN CHINA Her Only Object, Says the Under Secretary for Foreign Aftalrs, Is to Conserve Her Vast Commercial Interests. LONDON, Feb. 18.—The under secretary of state for foreign affairs, replying to a question in the house of commons to day, said that so far as the government was aware, no power was contemplating an expedition into the interior of China. If so, the British command would re quire fresh instructions. The refusal of Lord Cranborne, the. un der secretary of state for foreign affairs, to answer questions concerning which notice had not previously given, gave Mr. John Dillon, Irish Nationalist, the chance to move an adjournment of the house in order to debate the subject. Mr. Dillon declared that the under sec retary for the foreign office had been muzzled and that his refusal was a breach of privilege. Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Liberal; Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, the Liberal leader, and John Redmond and others supported Mr. Dillon. Mr. Balfour, in defending the course of Lord Cranborne, said It had been initiat ed by the government after careful con sideration. The practice of cross-examining the under foreign secretary was dangerous and would preclude the carrying on of delicate negotiations and might endanger the interests of nations, and, possibly,' the peace of Europe. No other nafon would have allowed the» latitude in for eign affairs permitted in this country. A foreign ambassador had congratulated the late under secretary, Mr. Broderick, on his refusal to reply to questions not placed upon paper. The house then divided as follows: For adjournment, 204; against, 249. BRITAIN IN CHINA. Lord Cranborne, when the debate on the address in reply to the king's speech from the throne, at the opening of par liament, was resumed, said commercial interest was Great Britain's principal in terest in China. There had been delay in the settlement of affairs in China, but such delay must be expected in dealing with the Chinese. As to the question of indemnity, Lord Cranborne said the Brit ish minister at Pekin, Sir Ernest Satow, had been Instructed to gather together the claims that were to be made. Referring to the railroad dispute, Lord Cranborne said Russia had assured the government that the occupation of the Pekin-Shan Hal Kuan railroad was only temporary and that the railroad and ma terials would be restored at the end of occupation. Russia's assurance respecting the rail roads were most categorical. The occu pation was purely temporary. Lord Cranborne added: "I am bound to say that in all our dealings with the Rus sian government in this matter we have been received in the most friendly way. We have no complaint whatever to make against the government of the czar. One cannot help wishing that the undoubtedly benevolent intentions of the Russian government are not carried out more rapidly by their officers in distant provinces. I do not doubt their inten tions in this matter towards this coun try." DEALINGS WITH RUSSIA. Continuing, Lord Cranborne said Rus sia had assured the government that any agreement between Russia and China respecting the occupation of Manchuria was in the nature of a modus Vivendi to prevent disturbances along the frontiers and railroads. It was purely temporary, iind although a guarantee was expected MlJl|PE!£ Af4p siJicipE EWp OF LOVESTO^Y. ATLANTA, Ga., Feb. 18.—The dead bodies of Mrs. H. M. Wilson, a young widow, and Wm, Hamilton, a student in pharmacy, who disappeared from .rvtlan ta one week ago today, were found last night one mile from the end of the Chattahoochee car line. The surround ings indicated that Hamilton had killed Mrs. Wilson, set fire to the woods near her body and then ended his own life. Mrs. Wilson was lying beside a fallen sapling. There was a bullet hole through her right hand and another in the right temple. The left foot was burned en tirely off, the flames had destroyed her hair and her left hand was burned, save --:■•---•••'-•■•■'--:•-•■•••■•••■• ■ -•■ " -•■:•■■: •' ■■■:-..-■■ -■:> ■ .-- _ "-; . - ; ;.: . ■ . . -.

Jn New Chwang?, although nominally under Russian military law, the private rights of the foreign communities did not ap pear to have been interfered with. The policy of his majesty's government was neither aggressive nor ostentatious. ••-. Sir William Vernon Harcourt asked: "Is it true that an expedition into the interior of China has been ordered by Count yon Waldersee? If so, how ..does the order affect our troops? At the end of such an operation we might find our selves in ij-nother guerrilla war among a population far greater than the' Boers." Lord Cranborne replied that so far as the government was aware no power was contemplating an expedition into the in terior of China. Lord Cranborne -also observed that the sovernment did not consider suicide a proper alternative for the death, penalty (in the case of the Chinese implicated in the Boxer outrages).. FOUR FIREMEN KILLED.*! BRAVE MEN WE'RIE 111 l(il<:i) UNDER FALLING WALL.

MILWAUKEE, Wis., Feb. 18—Fire tonight damaged the Milwaukee Herold newspaper plant to the extent of about 560.000, fully covered by insurance. The blaze started in the basement where a quantity of paper was stored In an instant the flames shot up the c-lcvator shaft to the fourth or top floor and before the fire department got down to -work the top of the building was a mass of ruins. The third and fourth floors and basement were gutted and everything on the other floors was badly damaged by water. Many of the Herold employes got cnt oJ the building barely in time to avoid suf focation. The greater part of the loss tails upon the linotype machines in the composing room and the presses in the basement. The Sentinel building, adjoining the Herald, sustained a loss of about ■31 000 on the third and fourth floors chiefly trom water. .The lire was under con trol at 1 a. m.

J.OISDON, Feb. 18.—A^ correspondent of the Daily Mail, who is with the British column pursuing Gen. Dewet, says: "Gen. Dewet has failed to reach his objective point, having been headed off in turn from Strydensburg and Hopetown respectively thirty-eight and fifty-five miles from the scene of Friday's fight. "Last night a meeting of burghers was held in Gen. Dewefs camp to protest against the indiscriminate flogging of men, and half the force threatened to surrender. Eventually the malcontents decided to fight independently." The Pretoria correspondent of the Daily Mail hints that Lord Kitchener is planning a campaign in the Northern Transvaal, especially in the neighbor hood of Pietersburg and in the other dis tricts not heretofore Visited by British troops. for one finger, which bore a wedding ring. By the side of Hamilton was found a revolver and an empty cigarette box. There was a hole in Hamilton's left temple and a few inches from his left hand lay a small mirror, evidently used to direct the bullet. Hamilton came to Atlanta from Mo bile. His tuition and expenses at col lege here have been paid by Mrs. H. M. Goodam, o& that city, acording to a recent letter from her to Mrs. "Wilson. It is known that Hamilton has been devoted to Mrs. Wilson for some time, but her parents assert that she gave film no encouragement. n it i n SOME DETAILS OF THE HUGE MERGER ENGINEERED BY J. P. MORGAN THE FIGURES ARE ENORMOUS CAPITALIZATION OF THE NEW TRUST PLACED AT A TOTAL OF $1,100,000,000 FRICK IS TO BE CHAIRMAN And According to the Latest Slate Sir. Siim ali Will Be the ** ' President of the New Company. NEW YORK, Feb. 18.-The Mail and Express says: It was reported In Wall street today that the final papers in the new steei consolidation would be signed at a meet ing at the Metropolitan club this even ing at which J. Pierpont Morgan would be present. The capital will consist of $400,000,000 7 per cent preferred stock, and $400,000,000 common stock, besides which $300,000,000 5 per cent first mortgage bonds will be issued. All the present stock and bonds of the constituent companies are to be canceled if the plans now in pros pect are carried through. This depends upon the stockholders of the constituent companies. If they should oppose the consolidation the plans first broached for a company of relatively, small capi tal to absorb the Carnegie company will be carried out. Bondholders of the Car negie company are to receive bonds of the new company, bond for bond, as Mr. Carnegie himself is to receive bonds in exchange for $i>3,000,000 stock at 150, giv ing him $124,500,000, and leaving about $15,000,0(10 of bonds to be used for organi zation and bankers' commissions. Mr. Carnegie will have no stock in the new company, but will hold $207,500,000 worth of bonds. Those minority stockholders, who have not been paid cash, are to receive $150 for their holdings in the preferred stock of the company and a bonus of an equal amount of common stock. This would take $150,500,000 pre ferred stock and an equal amount of common stock of the new company, leav ing $289,500,000 preferred and $291,500,000 common to be divided among the other companies. It is 4.he apportionment of this division that" has taken so much time. WHAT'S IN A NAME. It is still a question whether the new company can be called the United Steel company, because a concern of that name has just been incorporated under that name in Maine 'oy Boston parties. The earnings of the "constituent com panies last year amounted to $98,000,000. The interest on the new issue of bonds will be $15,000,000, other charges will increase this to JiS,COO,OOO. Add this to the $40,000,000 due per annum on the pre ferred stock and there remains ]5 par cent possible to be paid as dividends on the common stock, if last year's earnings should be maintained. The following paragraph in the .charter of the new corporation has never been used before in the charter of any similar corporation and is arousing the interest Of lawyers: "The title of any property or business may be acquired or remain in the na'Tie of any individual or any other company or manager for this company, or the company may take over and carry on the business of any other company,'without thereby acquiring shares of stock or any security controlled T>y mortgage or oth erwise and exercise all the powers of holders of shares of stock thereof man age its affairs, elect its officers and hold its control and as well receive and dis tribute as profits the dividends or inter est, as the ease may be on such stock or security, or distribute them as divi dends on the stock of this company " FRICK FOR CHAIRMAN. PTTTSBURG. Feb. 18.-It was Inti mated that Mr. Frick has been offered the chairmanship of the big concern ana will work in harmony with President Schwab, should he accept. This office, it is said, has been offered to him, and if he accepts, he will be almost identically in the same position he was before his resignation was hand ed to Mr. Carnegie. Former Secretary Iyovejoy's interests are being cared for by Mr. Frick and botli have been re quested to accept places in the giant corporation. J. Pierpont Morgan has held several conferences with Mr. Frick and it is said that he has informed Mr. Frick that his assistance is necessary in operating the combine. Mr. Lovejoy will probably go to New York between now and Wednesday if the announcement is not made, but as to there being any dissension among the minority stock holders, this i 3 denied. All are anxious tG know where they are going to land and v.'ill look after their interests until the matter is finally settled upon. A financial man stated today that he had advices from New York to the effect that J. Pierpont Morgan had postponed his vacation for several weeks. This is taken to mean that there have appeared obstructions that are regarded as prob able. The same advices indicated that one or two of the companies proposed to be included, may be finally omitted because of the fact that the'"directors proffered. They may be included later. • FATAL WRECK. Derailed Freight Oar Thrown in Front of Pa*senj?eT Loeomotiv?. PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Feb. 18—The south-bound express train on the Phila delphia, Wilmington & Baltimore rail road, which left here at 12:20 thi3 morn ing, was wrecked a short distance below Northeast, Md., at 1:45 this morning by crashing into a derailed freight car.
