Special Dispatches to Trrrc Mobkinq Call Baton- Rouge, July 9,— To-night the lot tery matter was submitted to the Judiciary Committee of the Senate, which, by a vote of Bto 3, made a report which disposes of the matter. The report holds that the Gov ernor has, under the State Constitution, no power whatever to veto a bill proposing an amendment to the Constitution, and speaks rather sharply of Governor Nicholls' action in so doing, saying in part: "Any infringe ment by the Executive of the Constitution is alive with great and distressing danger to the liberties of the people. It is resolved, therefore, that the veto of the Governor, whicli is without authority, be returned to the House of Representatives and that the Clerk of the Senate furnish the Governor with a copy of this resolution." This report was adopted and so tho whole matter is disposed of. CHINESE EXCLUSION. The Attitude cf the Pac fie Coast Assailed in the Eastern States. New York, July 9.— first-class raid against Chinese exclusion seems to be on foot throughout the East. A fraudulent interview with the Chinese Minister on the subject is being made the excuse for attacks on California and the Pacific Coast gener ally on account of its attitude on the Chinese question. Colonel Bee succeeds in having his special plea for Chinese printed in the World through the agency of a tele graphic correspondent in San Francisco. Wharton Barker, who was engaged with Count Mitkiewitcz in securing alleged great concessions from China for a Philadelphia syndicate, also appears iv a lengthy article to abuse the restriction acts. The majority Of the Washington correspondents of the New York, Boston and Philadelphia papers to-day take a hand in spreading the idea that the restriction measures are unjustifi able and deiiiarrogi -al, and many papers in other sections East niso seize the occasion to read the Pacific Coast dwellers a lesson. Nothing like it has been seen in the East in years, and never since the Chinese Literary Bureau at Washington, San Francisco and New York went Into the business of dis torting facts concerning the Chinese ques tion ou the Pacific Coast. KILLED HER HUSBAND. An Atlanta (Ga.) Woman Uses Her Dagger With Fatal Effect. Atlanta (Ga.), July 9.— "With words that weep and tears that speak," Mrs. Charles Gould, who is confined in jail at Murphy, X. C, on the charge of murdering her husband, declares the killing was unin tentional; that she was forced to it to pro tect herself from a man who, when sober, was a loving, careful, thoughtful husband, but who under the influence of liquor was a disgraceful, inhuman brute, whose chief pleasure lay in torturing her with threats of violence. It was not the husband this quiet, golden-haired little woman killed, it was the beast. The story in brief is that Gould and his wife came to Murphy from England, wheie they spent money with priucely liberality. The other day Gould returned from a hunt and drunk, began to abuse his wife and struck her with a riding whip. In the struggle which ensued she drew a dagger from her bell ami stabbed him blindly, furiously till dead. She now, heart-broken, is in jail awaiting trial. ENGLAND AND AMERICA. Tha Eonds of Union Ee'weeu the United States and Great Britain. Baltimore, July 9.— Lord Wolseley, In a letter received in this city, writes: "The closer the bonds of union between mother and child— England and the United States— the better it will bo for both, and our race, and, indeed, for civilization. Those who rant about causes of quarrel between us are no friends to either nation or to human ity. There must never be war between us, no matter how much either or both may be egged on by those who Pate the En glish race, and would, therefore,, like to see us at one another's throats. We feel quite as proud of the United States as any of its people cau be. its honor and its reputa tion are as dear to us as they can be to those on the other side of the Atlantic, and I re joice above all things to think that this mu tual respect we have always had for one another is now maturing into sincere and mutual affection." UNIFORM SUGAR TESTS. The Treasury Department Issues a Circular Against Di'criminatine K-port«. New Y'okk, July 9.— A special from Washington says that Spreckels has gained a victory by the issuance of a new circular concerning the sampling and classification of sugars by the Treasury Department.

Cleveland, July 9.— The wind-storm which swept over the city last evening was the most severe ever experienced. The ad vance of the storm seemed to be in a num ber of sharp, quick gusts, that wrecked Chimneys, blew down trees, and sent every thing movable through the air. its coming was shown by a cloud of dust one hundred feet high, which obscured the sun and made the streets as dark as midnight. Not a single object could be discerned at a dis tance of fifty feet. The fine dust filled the eyes and sifted into the clothing, and breathing, to those on the streets, was im possible without a handkerchief pressed lo the nostrils. Then came the rain in rush ing, swirling sheets, that beat down many plants and caused exceedingly heavy loss to the crops. In every part ol the city large trees were uprooted. The damage on tlie ore docks along the old river bed will amount at least to $80,000.

The Jealousy of Central . American Re publics May End in War. Particulars of the Death of President Me nendez — The Bill for a Public Building at Oakland Favorably Reported. Special Dispatches to The Moenixg Call. . .Washington, July 9.— lh the Senate this morning Presiding Officer Ingalls announced his signature to the bill for the admission of Wyoming. The bill now goes to the President for his signature. On motion of Blair the Semite proceeded to executive business. The doors were opened at 1 o'clock. The Sundry Civil .Appropria tion Bill was reported. Allison stated he would ask its consideration to-morrow. The consideration of the conference report on the Silver Bill was resumed. Cockrell continued bis argument against the report and criticized the last clause of the second section of tho conference bill and said the language therein indicated a preference for the single gold standard. The section reads, so he would interpret, that until a parity between the metals be established gold would be given the prefer ence and legal tender notes be redeemaed in gold. Teller controverted this assertion. Jones of Arkansas read an extract from an article in yesterday's New York Even ing Post, a paper opposed, he said, to sil ver legislation in all its forms, to the effect that the conference report contained some features not embraced in either the House bill or the Senate bill, and tending to make it a better measure than either. It also stated lhat the purpose of the silver men was "foiled." Cockrell— Precisely what I have said. That article is from a very able representa tive of the gold interest, and it is a warning to the Senator from Nevada (Jones) that he has abandoned the cause of the equaliza tion of silver with gold. Under this con ference report the Secretary of the Treasury can drive the country to part with every dollar of gold, and lock up in the vaults of the Treasury every dollar of silver. That is the most dangerous power given to the Secretary of the Treasury since the founda tion of this Government. Piatt— Hoes the Senator mean to say he would not give the Sccietary of the Treas ury discretion as to which coin he would pay in? Cockrell— l certainly would give him that discretion. I would say "redeemable in coin." ' Piatt— That is all there is to say. Cockrell— That Is true, but there is with it a declaration which is a fatal thing, and that is that the gold standard still exists ami must be maintained. Taking up the third section of the con ference bill, Cockrell entered a most earn est aud solemn protest against it as mean ing a practical cessation of silver coinage after July, 1891. Joues of Nevada— That is all we want. Cockrell— ln other words, the Senator from Nevada is willing to abandon the double standard, to make silver a mere commodity, to step its coinage and to tell the people of the country he has done something for them in the restoration of the double standard. The conference bill is a total abandonment of all pretentions to a double standard. Mitchell, in the course of some questions involving Cockrell's consistency, remarked that while he was in lavor of the fret, aud unlimited coinage of silver, he would sup port the conference bill because it was all the friends of silver could get. St Cockrell— l believe that if the Senate will reject this report the House will, in tiie end. agree to the Senate bill. We have made no determined effort to support the Senate bill. We show no backbone; we show no disposition to stand by what we have solemnly done, aud we give truth fully to tin* assertion of the mouometalists of the East that the bill was only a project to fur nish a market for silver bullion. Daniel addressed the Senate in opposi tion to the Silver Bill, a question which he said was a great deal bigger than the Presi dent of the United States, or whether the President's name was Benjamin Harrison or Gruver Cleveland. Daniel argued that under the conference bill 870,000,000 worth of silver bullion would be piled up in the Treasury every year, fur all the years that the silver stream would be flowing, and not a dollar of it could be coined to pay the bonds or the obligations of the United States, which were payable in coin. Such an enormous discrimination against silver as that never existed iv legislation, except when silver was completely de monetized. He admitted it would be better - that the conference hill should become law than no bill on the subject should become a law; but it was a mere makeshift. Sooner or later, Daniel said, Congress and the Executive had got to come into a collision on the silver ques tion. Why not let the collision come now ? If the friends of silver stood up to the fight they could win it, and if they ran away they "would lose it. If they believed in the free coinage of silver, as he did, they should stand by the Senate bill and let the Presi dent if the United Slates take care ol him self. Morgan then took the floor, but saw be could not finish his remarks to-day. An informal understanding was had that a vote be taken to-morrow, and the Senate adjourned. THE HOUSE. The Diplomatic and Consular Appropriation Bill Fails to Pass. Washington, July 9.— ln the House this morning llitt of Illinois, from the Commit tee on Foreign Affairs, reported back the resolution requesting the President to fur nish the House with the correspondence be tween the Government of the United States and Great Britain, touching the subjects in dispute in Behriug Sea since Marcii 1, ISB9 After some donate the resolution was adopted. Uitt presented the Conference report on the Diplomatic and Consular Appropriation Bill. In the course of the discussion that followed, reference having beeu made tn the appropriatiou made by the last bill for the protection of United States rights In Samoa, MoMillin (Tennessee) declared it now ap peared that the entire result of the Samoan negotiations had been to enthrone a King who bad been dethroned by his people. Our representatives, scut abroad for the purpose of settling Samoan matters, bad actually gone to the extent of overriding the will of the people of Samoa and selling up as King a scapegrace who had been de throned ; and moreover, this American -Ad ministration bad undertaken to pay part of the expenses of In- kingdom. It was a dis grace to the American people and to the Administration responsible for the negotia tions. McCrenry of Kentucky, who was Chair man of the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the last Congress, said be believed we had done the best that could be done, and McMillin was putting it too strongly. . If he was not satisfied with tbe negotiations be could Introduce a bill to carry out his views, or he could call for the correspond ence with foreign nations. There was not a word about Samoa in the present bill. • - McMillin — The gentleman - has admitted taking up the deposed King and placing him on the throne. Was there not another agreement that a Chief Justice should be appointed aud the governments of the United States and Great Britaiu and Ger many jointly guarantee his salary? •-: : McCreary — Tho gentleman ■ states it -.- too strongly. The Samoan question , has noth ing to do with this appropriation bill.:. ' . Hitt demanded the previous question, de clining to yield to McMillin, who .was de sirous of ■ continuing the Samoan contro- versy.' . . . .- •,- r>: /: Thereupon McMillin raised the point of no quorum, pending which Rogers of Ar kansas moved that the House adjourn. Lost— Ayes 70, noes 98. The previous question ordered— ayes 103. noes 44. The Speaker declared a quorum present, and then McMillan moved a reconsidera tion. . The vote on tabling the motion to reconsider resulted : Ayes 104, noes 60, the Speaker counting, through tho clerk, a quorum, and declaring the motion carried. Brcckenridge (Kentucky) challenged the correctness of the count. Instancing the names of Enloe, Herbert, CrainandFithian, and stating they were not present Subse quently lie withdrew his challenge to the names of Craln and Fitlilan but persevered so far as Enloe and Herbert were concerned. The Speaker, admitting the necessity for absolute correctness, said that in the record those members were present and voting; but even eliminating the names of Enloe and Herbert, there was a quorum present. He therefore declared the motion to tablo carried, and put the question on agreeing to the conference report. The vote was resumed, resulting in ayes 111, noes 33, and the Speaker was unable to count a quorum, so the conference report has not been agreed to for the present. Adjourned. ■ ♦ CENTRAL AMERICAN REPUBLICS Trouble Brewing Over the Proposed Confedera tion—Menendiz' Dealt./. Washington, July 9.— That trouble is brewing among the Central American re publics over tho proposed confederation, which may result at any moment in war, is manifest from the latest advices received in this city. The jealousy and distrust with which each country views the designs of the other, together with other matters, the chief of which is the great disparity in the respective national debts and the local ad vantages of the Nicaragua Canal, have com bined to raise the bitterest opposition to a scheme which would link together in one nation tho Central American republics of Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, San Sal vador and Guatemala. Among the diplo mats here it is talked that instead ol draw ing to a peaceful and amicable settlement the imbroglio is daily becoming more com plicated. The story of the death of President Menendez of San Salvador is given as fol lows: At the banquet table a small bottle of wine was set apart for the President's own use. Jn fact, the guests surrounding him had bottles of a similar character. During the progress of the banquet the President complained of not feeling well and asked to be excused. He retired to a room and in a few minutes was seized with convulsions, frothed at the mouth and turned livid. Medical aid was summoned, but without avail. Within three-quarters of an hour the lifeless body was all that was left of the President of "San Salvador. General Ezeta was at once summoned, aud collecting all his available forces, he inarched to the White House and took pos session of the Presidency, causing his soldiers and remaining guests to proclaim him Provisional President. The following morning General Ezeta summoned the same Ministers who were with President Menendez and requested them to remain in office subject to his or ders. This the Cabinet agieed to do, but within twenty-four hours General Ezeta made himself master of the situation, dis banded the Cabinet and selected new men known to be opposed to Guatemala's scheme to secure control in San Salvador, and who were mere in accord with the will of the people at large. As soon as Ezeta formed a new Cabinet he found the Guatemalan faction in San Salvador maturing plans for his overthrow. The ringleaders in the plot were summarily dealt with. No less than thirty were shut and about forty were ex iled from the country. The garrisons at the seaports and on the frontiers are being re-enforced and San Salvador to-day may be fairly said to maintain an armed peace. The military, which had been considerably re duced during Menendez' administration, is now being re-enforced and all civilians are llHble to military duty. Nicaragua, learning of this, became con siderably alarmed. As she desired to avoid bloodshed she consulted with Costa Rica, and efforts are being made on the part of these two republics to induce San Salvador to promise not to lend her aid to any movement toward union that may. be ac companied by. force. ... ..„ .„ ... . „ . The Nicaragiiaii Canal is playing an Im portant part in the matter. The interests of both Costa Rica and Nicaragua are akin in this enterprise, even were it necessary to use desperate measures to avoid submit ting in any way to Guatemala. Both Nic aragua and Costa Rica have the idea in view of entering into a confederation with the United States of Colombia. The prime outlook of this hinted federation is protec tion to mutual interests on one side and the control of the only interoceanic commu nication on the American continent on the other. Should this federation take place the keynote to all Pan-American enter prises will, it is said, be held by tiie three countries named. SAN FRANCISCO'S POPULATION. The Census Department Uncertain When the Figures Will Ba Made Pnb'.'C. Washington, July 9.— Assistant Super intendent Hyde of the Census Department was asked to-day, "When may we expect San Francisco's official returns to be pub lished?" "That is bard to say," was the reply. "New York City, Minneapolis, St. Paul and some other cities are being made 'special,' and these reports will be among the first ones given out. In about two weeks there will be a perfect rush of census returns, and these will be published as fast as tabulated. It will be fully six months before some of the cities will be tabulated, but, of course, a metropolitan city like San Francisco will receive attention as soon as possible." "At what do you estimate Sau Francisco's population?" NE~~~) "We make it 300,000 at a rough guess, but the official count may show a little less or a little more." The Superintendent of the Census has re ceived a telegiam from Census Supervisor Davis of San Francisco saying he finds there was but one district in that city in which any padding was done. In this dis trict 477 names were added by the enumer ator. He has been arrested and a recount is iv progress. REDUCED FREIGHT RATES. The Interstate Commerce Commission Hears Arguments frr Lower Charges. Washington, July 9.— The railroad com panies having presented an argument in op position to the contemplated order of the Interstate Commerce Commission reduc ing freight rates on grain shipments in the West, on the ground of want of jurisdic tion, the commission to-day heard argu ments from persons of the opinion that the proposed reductions, and even greater, should be ordered. There wereprosent the following persons Interested in the matter: T. H. LamUertson of Lincoln, Nebr., repre senting the State and the State Farmers' Alliance; E. F. Dousman, member of the Chicago Board of Trade, and George T. An thony and James Humphrey of Kansas, and the Railroad Commissioners of lowa. Dous man made the opening argument. THE LION'S SHARE. A Growl in the Home Committee on an Ap- propriation for Oakland. Washington, July 9.— The House Com mittee on Public Buildings and Grounds met this morning, and, after considerable wrangling, finally agreed to report favor ably the Senate bill for a public building at Oakland, Cal., to cost S"o0.000. Some of the members of the committee believe that California is getting the lion's share of ap propriations for public buildings, and there was considerable bad temper displayed to day. One of the Republicans loudly com plained that Clunie, a Democratic member, received more favor than some of the Re publican members of the committee. The Oakland bill is on the calendar, at any rate, and Is likely to pass before adjournment. - *» GROWING CITIES. Chicago Has Over One Million Inhabitants. Baltimore ard St. Lenta. ; Washington, July 9. — A rough official count of the population of St. Louis by the Census Office was; completed to-day. It shows the city population to be 448,124. This . is in excess about 12,000 over the esti mate made by the local supervisor. Baltimore's population is something over 433,000. The Chicago Census Supervisor sent bis returns to Washington to-day. He says now that Chicago's population is not less than 1,100,000. t To Refrain From Votirg. Washington, July 9.— The Virginia Re publican State Committee to-day passed resolutions declaring that they will not par ticipate aud advising "all < self-respecting Republicans to forbear ' from . participation in any election in the State so long us the same shall be conducted . under the foul election law < of : the Democratic ■ party ■as now fraudulently administered."

Return of President Mone from Oregon. Selna's Conduct to be Officially Investigated— Eastern Games. John J. Mone, President of the California Base-ball League, returned to this city yesterday morning from the north. He had been away nine day-, and during that time visited the four towns represented in the Northern Pacific League. The exact object of his trip could not be learned, Mr. Mone insisting he had been traveling merely for pleasure and that base-ball business had nothing to do with his departure. One fact lenjiug color to the impression that Mr. Mono had a few schemes on hand was his constant presence with Henry Harris dur ing his entire stay in the webfoot region. "When I arrived in Poriland," said the league President yesterday, "1 was disap pointed to find that Harris was in Tacoma. I left for the latter place as soon as possi ble, and accompanied the Portland team to Spokane Falls, Seattle and back to the burg on the Willamette Kiver. One of the amus ing features of the trip was the anxiety of the newspaper men to ascertain the object of my visit. A rumor preceded me that I intended to Induce Harris to return here, and when I set fool in Portland reports were flying about regarding my proposed purchase of the best men in the league. 1 was buttonholed at every corner, roused out of bed at all hours of the night and in terrogated until 1 was tired; but I could not convince the people that 1 did not have evil designs on their clubs. I got into Ta coma , about, the time Earl, the Eastern catcher, was expected, and the cranks im agined I intended to steal him. I was in formed afterward that a close watch was put ou my movements until 1 left town. "How does the Northern Pacific compare with the California League? The teams up there would give our clubs a hard battle. They are equal In everything but batting to California players. Ido not desire to con vey the impression that they are weak hit ters as a class. There are some very heavy baiters in the clubs and the pitchers are above the average. The teams appear to be making money, and even at Portland, when the home ciub is iv last place, the at tendance is heavy. Seattle has the finest grounds on tlie Coast aud the stands are handsome structures. Tacoma has also good grounds, but the Spokane Falls Park is not properly laid out. Portland's grounds are In fair condition." "Was there any talk of a consolidation of the California and Northern leagues?" "The subject was discussed in a general way, but nothing definite was arrived at. The association there is yet in an experi mental stage, and it would not be good pol icy to enter into such an agreement just now. A plan was also proposed to have the leading clubs of both leagues play a series of games ut the end of the season for the championship of the Pacific Coast, but the scheme is still in un embryotic state. "Henry Harris," continued Mr. Mone, "will not leave Portland uutil the close of the season. He likes the country and the people up there. He is endeavoring to strengthen the team, but good ball-players are too difficult to secure for that place. Borchers is again pitching and is behaving himself. I saw him pitch two games and he was in fine form. The crack batter of the league, Turner of Spokane Falls, struck out twice before him. Harris has one of the best shortstops on the Coast. His name is Hassamer. He covers much territory, goes after everything, and while he errs occasionally plays good ball all the lime. Ben Young and McCue are the um pires. The former seems to satisfy every one, but McCue, who is a relative of 'Peek a-boo' Veacb, is unpopular and I think has been released within the past few days. "Every treated me very nicely on the trip," said Mr. Mone in conclusion, "and they all were well posted on the affairs of our league. I saw a great deal of the coun try, spending all my time riding about the different towns." Charley Gagus has consented to umpire for the local league until another referee is engaged. He will officiate in the games of this week. President Moiie has entered into negotiations with Umpire McLaughlin of the International League with a view of bringing him out here. Whitehead could not secure bis release from Denver, as the man who was expected to fill his place has fallen ill. Finn is now endeavoring to get Tommy Forster, short stop and manager of the Hartford team. Should Forster be engaged Ebright will be placed at third base. Finn is also trying to sign Pitcher Jack Fanning, late of the Kan sas City Club. A meetiug of the league Directors will be held next Saturday night to settle the claims of San Francisco and Sacramento regarding Koscoe Coughlio. The case of Selua, who struck the umpire at Stockton last Sunday, will also be investigated at the meeting. This afternoon the Oaklands and San Franclscos will play at the Uaight-stieet £ rounds. The batteries will be Carsey and oilman for the Colonels and Lookabaugh and Stevens for the home team. , EASTERN BASE-BALL The Bostons Win . From Pittsburg Despite Niciiolis' Wilduess.

St. Paul, July 9.— The National Educa tional Association reassembled this morning. The first paper of the day was the report of the special committee on "Psychological and Pedagogical Observation," presented by George P. Brown ot Illinois, Chairman. Dr. W. T. Harris, United States Commis sioner of Education, read another paper on the same subject. Professor Charles de Garmo of Normal, 111., read a report on the Special Inquiry on the Relation of In struction to Will-training. Superintendent W. H. .Maxwell of Brooklyn, N. V., pre sented a paper on "Examinations as Tests for Promotion." Department work by the various sections was taken up this after noon. During the afternoon there were seven meetings of educational departments in various parts of the city. The Department of Music and Education met in the People's Church, being presided over by Herbert Griggs of Denver, whose opening addresa was a comparison between old and new methods of teaching music, in which he strongly urged making a musical atmos phere in the school and having all things harmonious, in that way faster advancing the pupil. Other papers were read. Kindergarten work was considered at the First M.E. Church. Professor Irwin Shepard of Minnesota thought every primary teacher should be taught in a kindergarten. Secondary education was the topic at the mouth Congregational Church. A paper on the high school as a fitting school was read by A. F. Bcchdolt of Minnesota, who thought high schools too superficial. Fifty colleges were represented at the meeting of the higher education depart ment at the First Baptist Church and three papers were discussed. President Blan chard of Wheaton College, Illinois, took up the query, "What have the people to ask of the college?" and con cluded that they could ask colleee men to become more of leaders in affairs even than they now are. President Stetson of Dcs Moines College considered the question of "Shorter college courses to meet a pop ular demand," and his position, as well as that of those who followed on the same subject, was strongly against the innova tion. The hall of the House of Representatives was crowded by the Normal School Depart ment and their friends. Art education was under consideration in the High School Building. Several papers were read. The departments of Elementary Schools and Industrial Education and Manual Training held a joint meeting at Market Hall under the topic of "Provisions for and Course of Training and Manual Training." The divisions of primary classes and elementary schools generally were con sidered by the speakers. Tbeir teaching was taken from their own experience. The evening session was wholly in charge of the ladies. Some interesting papers were read. The Committee on Nomina tions of the Association will report to-mor row morning, for President, William R. Garrett of Nashville, Tenu., present Secre tary of the Association ; for Secretary, E. H. Cook of New Brunswick, S. J.; for Treasurer, J. M. Greenwood of Kansas City, Mo. Miss Francis Wiilard of Evanston, 111., read the closing paper of the evening on "The White Cross Movement in Educa tion." She believed there are four great movements which, in the largest way, will raise this idea to the rightful place in the lives of young people. They are: Co-edu cation, financial independence of women, reform in dress and equal suffrage. All these reforms should be taught in the pub lic schools, aud brought to the minds of young people. WITHOUT HIS APPROVAL. The President Vetoes a Bill Extending Tims of Payment on Indian Lands. Washington, July 9.— The President to day returned to the House without his ap proval the hill extending the time of pay ment to the purchasers of the land of the Omaha tribe of-lndians in Nebraska The President in the veto says: "There is no objection that 1 know of either on the cart of the United States or the Indians to tbe extension of unpaid installments due from the purchasers, but this relief Is probably due to the purchasers." The President, how ever, objects to the provision "that all lands, the payment for which is extended, shall be subject to taxation by the Star of Nebraska as fully paid for and the patents issued." The President is of the opinion that the title of the United States an the interest of the Indians In the lands should not be subjected to sale for the delinquency of the purchasers in paying tax as tost ments.
