GETS DOWN TO WORK. The Convention at Stockton Means Business. U OR(J\MZ\TIO\ IS EFFECTED. K(*a Withdraws From the Fight for •y: '■'.*. ?•.. the Chairmanship. J. H.ISEFF mm BY ACCLAMATION The Fight for Negates at Large Grows „ Racer San Francisco's Squabble Settled— The Platform. Special to. The Mousing Call. Stocktox, May 3.— A few of the remain ing delegations arrived this morning on the early train, and the scene about the Ycsem- Ite Hotel during the early hours of the day was an animated one. Colonel Burns was in his rooms before 9 o'clock, and was ioon hard at work. Kea, too, was en hand and began work, but it was evident that he was discouraged Chairman J. II Kelt •nd saw that defeat stared him in the face. lie maintained a smiling countenance, how ever, and told his friends that he was in the fight to stay. In a short lime delegation after delegation went to hiru with a request for hlra to get out of the fight, and before noon he had agreed to do so. He also con sented to second the Domination of Neff. This was the end of . the preliminary skir mish, and Burns had triumphed. The Kelly men took it very much to heart and talked bitterly ol the outlook, but In a short time they regained their spirits and went about congratulating their successful opponents. Crimmit.s' followers went about with long faces and seemed not to be in it at all. They were Ignored, in fact, and no one seemed to know that they were in town. Burns, on the contrary, was the center of attraction, and his name was in everybody's mouth. It was conceded that lie had made a remark able fight and had won a clean victory. About noon the Los Angeles delegation met and patched up their differences. Northam, who came up last night with Otis, came to a realizing sense of the fact tbat he could not win and made overtures for a compromise. A long wrangle ensued, and it was finally agreed to vote as a unit In the convention for Spence. It was also aeree I to ao back to Bos Angeles and work for Northam as a candidate for elector-at large. This ended the dispute and made Spence the practically unanimous choice of Southern California. On the noon train De Young arrived, with George Ileazelton, and began to work on his own fight He had intended to stay in San Francisco, but he was being pressed so hard that defeat seemed to be staring him in ttie face, and Stone wired him to come •nd help out. It is needless to say that no brass baud met him at the depot, and that no one seemed to give him the least atten tion, lie wandered about like a man who bad a- scarcity of friend-, and he looked angry and weary. It was about 2 o'clock when Chairman Stump of the State Central Committee called the convention to order. Nearly all the chairs provided for delegates were oc cupied, and the galleries were crowded. Each county was Indicated by a silk band with the name inscribed. Un calling the convention to order Mr. Stump said : "Gentlemen of the Convention: You are to be congratulated upon the large attend ance at this convention, and the great en thusiasm of those assembled here. They "•.age** well for the future of the party »jd the success of the ticket to be fiom in at Minneapolis. They show the confidence you have . in Republican prin ciples and the Republican patty. They are evidences that the eminently wise and conservative administration of national af fairs during the past three years is appre ciated, and that the present policy el the l irty meets with your hearty indorsement. Tbe principles of the protective tariff that p.oVcts are of vital Importance to our varied and rapidly developing industries. and the business of this convention at all stag should be so conducted that in the fail .campaign those principles may not suf fer ty any act of our*, but may be sus tainv-d and indorsed by the people with morn enthusiasm titan ever before. "1 congratulate you, gentlemen, that we enter the campaign with no apologies for ou»*c'; nduct of public affairs, The manly, p-Vootic and conscientious administration of ctjr foreign affairs under the guidance of that «juatchle»s statesman, J tines ii. Blame, will --lube a tower of strength in the contest. We 4an congratulate ourselves that time has &roven the wisdom of the measures bearijntz the name of that eminent sou of Ohio: William McKinley; and during these years] the careful aud.ccuscientious devotion to duly and country of our honored chief inagb trate, that great and good man, Ben jamin Harrison, is a matter of honest pride to eyery citizen. , . *it remains for us to do our duty well and fearlessly; to place measures above men, and principles above personal ambition." His speech, which was read from manu script, made a favorable impression and was frequently interrupted by applause. Tim- name of Harrison was greeted with Vtud and long applause, but when Blame The Morning Call. was referred to the entire assemblage broke into cheers and delegates sprang to their feet and shouted themselves hoarse. When the applause had subsided Judge E. V. Spencer of Lassen arose in the rear of the hall and said: ! "Mr, Chairman: I desire to place a name in nomination for temporary chairman ol this convention. In doing this I desire to say, first, that we are indebted to the lle publican party for all that is best in our Government, and for this wo owe much to the anchormen who have done such noble work. The men who have fought our bat tles deserve the rewards, and such a man is the Hon. Jacob Ntff of Placer." Cheers greeted this announcement, and they were, renewed when Judge Murphy of Los Angel; s seconded the nomination. He said: "L '8 Angeles balieves in the great Stale of California one and undivided, and to-day Los Angeles greets Placer by sec onding the nomination of Jacob Neff. My people, who live among the orange groves of the south, believe that the great mining interests should be out on their feet again, and we will not only work to accomplish this, but again second the nomination of Neff." De Golla of Alameda also pleaded the cause of Neff, saying that he represented the banner county of the State, which had often in days gone by saved the party from defeat. They asked to be heard, therefore, in behalf of one of the warhorses of the party. . . Then Jim Pea got to his feet, and was c ied to the echo. "On behalf of the Republicans of Santa Clara," he said, "1 take pleasure in second ing Mr. NVff's nomination, and 1 now move that he be elected by Reclamation." There were more cheers, and Pea sat down with a smile- on his boyish face. Neff was chosen with a great show of enthu siasm, and Pea and Meyer were named .is a committee to escort 'him to the chair. Neff received an ovation as he mounted the stage, and after bowing his acknowledge ments spoke briefly: "J am proud," said he, "to be called upoa to preside over such a body. 1 can only say that no matter who is nominated at Minneapolis lie will win in the battle of ballots in November. law ait your pleasure." , Frank 1). Pyan of Sacramento briefly nominated for set-rotary Colonel Eugene L"he oi San Joaquin. Coffey of San Francisco named R. L. Thomas. Both were chosen to act, and tien Shel don of L*>s Angeles moved a committee of 11 to consist of two from each Con gressional district be named as a committee on credential:-. Thornton of San Francisco moved to Increase to 15 by naming oue at large. Tills was agreed to. Powell of Alameda moved the appoint ment of a committee of 15 on permanent or ganization, and Johnston of Sacramento moved that the chair name 15 members as a committee on platform and resolutions. Both were adopted. De Golia of Alameda then placed in nom ination for sergcant-at-anns James J. Ma loney of San Francisco. Laughter greeted the announcement of the pain.-, and the chair ruled the motion out of older, the se lection belonging properly to the committee on tiermaner t organization. Wilson of San Francisco asked that a re cess of half an hour be taken to give the chairman a chance to prepare his commit tees, and this was done. On reassembling the following committees were announced : On credentials-!.. A. Sheldon, Sixth District, chairman; F. C. de Long, First District; D. T. Cole, Ft. si District; C. 11.

Senator Mahoney intioluced a resolution that all resolutions presented to tiie con vention be referred to the committee on platform without debate. On motion of Dibble of San Francisco it was tabled and the convention adjourned to 7:33 o'clock in the evening. The convention reassembled at 7:30, when the report of the committee on credentials was read and action was deferred until' the printed report and the list of delegates had been received from the printer. The con vention, however, finally voted to read only those naim-s which had been changed by the committee. The report was ns follows: To the Bepublteaa State convention and Hon. J. CL Neff. the ciiainn ;.u thereof: Your commit tee on credentials bees leave to submit for your approval the following report: That after a fair and honest bearing of all protests piesented to It In regard to the s-atinir of certain delegates ■nd the unseating of others your committee, with the object id view to do justice to all aod THE OPENING OF THE ((INVENTION. act unfairly with none, has unanimously decided mat Hie delegates elected to tills convention sad entitled io be sealed as such are those whine names appear upon the revised punted list now In the hands ol the secretary, arid your commit tee respectfully reports the same as the duly elected and qualified deleave* to this conven tion. Uespeciruiiy submitted, 1.i".-. i i. A. Sheldon, Chairman. t This compromise report grew out of the dissatisfaction of the country members of the committee with the quarreling ol the San I'rancisco men. The delegation was divided between the two. sides, Kelly and Crimmius being allowed to keep their eight delegates from the Thirty-fourth District, and Burns and Wilson being given the five delegates from the Thirty-sixth. This leaves the Sau Francisco delegation 57 for Burns and Wilson and 53 for Kelly and diamine. It was moved as an amendment that tho names of those stricken out lv the Thirty* SAN FRANCISCO, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 4, 1892— EIGHT PAGES. sixth District be substituted for those re ported. Powell of Solano hoped that San Francisco would not insist upon forcing her factional fights upon the convention, saying, "Let them wash their dirty linen at home." This worked upou Coffey so that he with drew his amendment, and on motion of Xiies the report was adopted. 23R18 Tho report of the committee on perma nent organization was then i resented. It read as follows : First— That the temporary chairman, Jacob H. Nell, be the permanent chairman of lhe conven tion. Second— That the temporary secretaries. K. 1.. Thomas and Eugene 1.-he, act as permanent secretaries of the convention. Third— lhat \V. H. Ilanlon. H. W. Bachedor. 11. A. Wearer and E. C. Demo act as assistant secretaries. Fonrth— C. R. Johnson, chief, and assist ants John Harrigan, J. J. Malom-y and Thomas Wren act as serjieatits-ai-arms. And the commtites further reports that tbe order of business be as follows: .-■■. • First— Report of the committee on platform and resolutions. Second— Election by the convention of four delegates and four alternates from the State at large to the Republican national convention, such election lo be upon the roilcall by counties; provided that from ihe city and county of San Francisco the roilcall shall be by Assembly dis tricts. Third— Heating the report from each Con gressional District of the selection of two dele gates and two alternates to the Republican national convention. ' Fourth— The selection of a State Central Com muter to be composed of one member from each Assembly district, and where two or more coun ties form an Assembly district there shall be one from each County coiiiiiosltiK such district.

Ed by i. im within two wre^s after the ad j iciicei*t of the convention to the eli.tiim.-ui of lhe j resent Stall-: Central Committee. 11. A. Powell, Chairman. E. J. Niles of Lis Angeles offered as an amendment the following: Resolved, That a State Centra! Committee bo electee to succeed the present State Central Committee, said committee to bo composed of one member from each Assembly district th rough out the state ol California, sain member of each Assembly district to I c eleccd by delegate* rep resenting the lespeciive districts in this conven tion, and be it further Resolved. That no person holding an oflice or position of honor or profit under the Federal, Stale oi Couniy Government Midi he eligible to act as a member of saM Stale Central Committee. Any member of said Stale Central Committee accepting a position of honor or profit under the Federal, State or Couniy Government dining tho period of nine lie has been elected to serve and aci as a member of sale state Central Committee shall become disqualified to act as a memner of «ald committee, and a vacancy shall be declared tor tie Assembly district so represented by aim in said Stae (entrai Conimltiee. nnd said va cancy caused by such action shall be tilled by ihe executive committee of said State central Committee. And be It further Resolvfd, That an executive committee of < my i.ye be added to the general committee by ibis convention, said executive committee to have and take charge of the Presidential and Congressional cam; algn of 1892. Resolved, That tins committee hold office uuiil lie first meeting of the State convention, to be held In the yeai IS'JI. when their succes sors be elected. Wilson of San Francisco asked the object of the resolution. Niles replied that he had presented It because it was beneficial to the Republican party. The Kelly men cheered. Wilson said: "I am ready to go arm-In arm with the gentleman from Los Angeles when the good of the party is involved, but 1 again a*k what is the object of the reso lution?" [More cheers.] Meyer ot Alameda emitted a roar at this point because the Alameda delegation could not find seat-, A Nevada delegate moved that they be given seats upon the stage, and this provoked the ire of Mr. .Meyers. For a moment it looked as if a personal collision was imminent. John T. Dare sad he was not prepared to vole for such an amendment. "I cannot." he said, "vote for any resolution that will vote out such a man as our dis tinguished chairman, or such a man as Ir win C. Stump. Judgo Murphy could not support his friend from his own county. They had two Federal officers who had carried muskets iv defense of tln-tr country, and they should not be disfranchised in this way. Walter Mooro arose to answer the ques tion asked by Wilson. He. wanted a new deal all around. He was a sample of the rustic simplicity of the sunny south, and believed the time had come for new men to act. Judge Nourso of Fresno said he would have given tin* oflicers a chance to attend to their duties. [Cheers.] Hart of Sacramento thought this resolution was intended to pro scribe a great many American citizens. it was unrepttblican, and should not be enter tained. I', -x iof San Francisco opposed the resolution. He said: "If you don't want them on keep them off, and if you do want them put them on." Short! of Santa Ana did not want to see the old standard-bearers pushed to the rear. Preston of Sao Francisco said it was au old maxim not to desert the ship that car ried you safely across the stream. No man, he believed, should attempt to disrupt the convention by revolutionary resolutions. The Republican party had great issues to meet In the coming struggle and needed the best material at its command. ' Morehouse of Santa Clara said: "We have lost sight of the great principles that underlie the selection of a State Central Committee. What we want is our bos.t men. no matter who they are or what they art-." Sturtevant of Mendocino, in the interest of economy of time, moved tin* previous question, but the motion was lost. Then Knight of San Francisco made one of his usual rambling speeches iv support of the resolution. "Hot a dollar of Republican money," he added, "lias ever greased my hand, and if God spares mo it never will. What I want Is success, and for that reason 1 want men win. can attend to party affairs wilbout neglecting their official duties." Lemmon of Santa Rosa spoke against tho resolution. Assemblyman Dibble of San Francisco Relieved the amendment should pass. He was tired of machine rule and for one wanted the perpetuation of a few in office stopped. McCoy of San Diego moved to strike out all that portion relating to the State Central Committee. This was defeated by a vote of 324 to 178. • Niles' amendment was then put to a vote nnd declared lost. The rollcail was de manded, however, and the result was 428 noes ana 120 ayes. The report as originally read was adopted. The chair then announced that, owine to a difference of opinion among the members as lo certain points, the committee on plat form and resolutions was not ready to re port and asked for further time. The convention adjourned until to-mor row at 11 o'clock. THE PLATFORM. There Is a Hitch on the Question of Free Coinage. Stockton. May 3.— a late hour to night the committee on platform is still in session. The disagreement is over the silver question. Grove L. Johnson of Sac ramento introduced a resolution providing for the free coinage of the white metal, and this was promptly opposed by a number of his associates on the committee. They have been struggling to come to an agreement ever since tiny went out this afternoon, and It may he morning before a basis of settlement is reached for the differences. The platform is substantially to the effect that President Harrison's administration is indorsed, as iJ his action in Chile, Italy and the Bering Sea controversies. The plan of reciprocity is indorsed ; also Governor Markbam's admin istration. A revision of the naturalization and immigration laws is demanded, so that undesirable people who are sent or come voluntarily here can. be ke. out. Im provement in the enforcement of the eight hour law is demanded, and the election of United States Senators by the popular vote. The Government control and operation and the speedy construction of the Nicaragua Canal is favored. HOW IT WAB SETTLED. San Francisco's Fight Not Allowed to Go Into the Convention. Stockton, May 3.— When the credentials committee met Lionel A. Sheldon presided and the room was packed to suffocation. Kelly was on hand and so was Dorn. The latter acted for his boss, as did Ruef, who explained that he was not allied to any fac tions but bad been engaged as an attorney. His announcement that lie was not witb either side provoked a roar of laughter, which discomfited him, but he managed to proceed in good form. When the committee was called to order it was announced tbat contests would be presented from several districts. Billy Harrington was on hand to ask that the six voles claimed by Martin Kelly in the Twenty-eighth District be thrown out, and Registrar Brown claimed fraud in the Thirty-fourth. Judge Schell of the Thirty fifth appeared to claim that his friends had been jobbed." Wilson acted for the alliance in the Thirty-sixth. Dorn, who is with Kelly, stated that they would retaliate if this issue was pushed by contesting every district carried by Burns and Wilson. Be hoped it would not come to that, for he did not care to take the ugly quarrels of the city Into the convention. Some little discussion of a general nature followed, and the committee, by a unan imous vote, resolved to ignore all contest", except in the Thirty-fourth and Thirty-sixtn districts. Ruef objected even tn this in the interests of the party. "1 witnessed the late prima ries in San Francisco," he said, "and a more disgraceful affair never was seen. At every polling-place in the city dozens of toughs and thieves and thugs and heelers had assembled, until no decent tnan would come to vote. If we ate to bring all this Ip now wo will bring the parly into discredit all over the State." Then John T. Dare, representing the alli ance people in the Thirty- fourth, presented a number of affidavits. lie handed in hu affidavit signed by S. It •i.vrseii, a police officer, in which he claimed that after tbe closing of the polls on tho day of the pri maries lie had seen a county committeeman take at least -23 ballots from - his-pockbti&vt-** place them in the box. He had also seen Hngencamp tako ballots from the chal lenger and put them in tho box. D. C. Nostram deposed in a similar man ner, as did W. M. Ross and J. J. Riley, two police officers. A. Hazencamp was called and entered a general denial. Registrar brown then took the stand. He was shown a number of what are called stulfers' cards which, it was claimed, were in bis handwriting. When asked directly if be had made them out he strove to evade a direct answer and said he might have done so, but could not remember. He was emphatic in bis statement, however, that he had' not asked nny one to vote who was not entitled to do so. De Long shut tlie witness off by moving that the delegates as originally reported bo confirmed. This was carried and the Thirty-sixth taken up. When the evidence was all In the committee decided to scat tho Bums delegation. DISTRICT CONVENTION'S. The First and Second Select Delegates to Minneapolis. Stockton, May 3.— To-night a couple of district conventions were held. The First District elected E. V. Spencer of Lassen and D. T. Cole of Sierra district delegates, and S. J. Matthew of Mendocino and J. T. Matlock of Tehama alternates. The Second District elected J. F. Kidder of Grass Valiey and A. J. Rhoades of Sac ramento delegates, and A. C. Voorhies of Amador and Dr. N. Spositl of Stockton alternates. After the convention adjourned to-night the committee on platform was in session until after 12 o'clock. At that tlmo the platform had not been agreed upon by the committee, and the members decided to dclibernto another night over It. The stumbling-block in their path is said to be tho question ot denouncing anarchy. BADLY .MIXED. The Fight for I>elej;nt«k-at-I.ar£o to the National Convention. H?1 Stockton, May 3.— The fight for del egatcs-at-lnrgo is badly mixed to-night, but the consensus of opinion is that the four winners will be Hideout. Estee, Harries and Spence. Roth Do Young and Felton have absolutely refused to draw out, and it is generally believed that both will be de feated unless their friends persuade them to let go. Felton is much the stronger of the two, especially in the country, as it now stands, and his friends are working for him like tigers. There is, however, a feeling on the part of a great many members of the party that Felton should, as a Senator, be content to keen out of tbe convention, while at tbe same time they are opposed to Do Young. To send the latter this time. It is said, would bo accepted by the - people of the State as an indorsement, and would make Mike a clear-cut issue in the coining campaign. This would be certain' to en danger the legislative ticket,- as there are thousands of Republicans in the State who would vote the Democratic ticket, rather ' than take the chance of Mike's election. To defeat him to-morrow, however, will be to put him on the shelf, where he can re main, and leave the field clear for a decent man. Do Young has charge of his Own fight ROW and is assisted, of course, by Poobah Stone and his man Friday, Heaz-lton. He lids persuaded Qeorge Knight to placo him in nomination, but the genial. (I. -org" is not taking much of a hand otherwise. George's heart is evidently not with Mike, but he is tied up so that he cannot get out honorably, aud has to stay by a bad cause to bis own evident chagrin. Spence, since the agreement in tho Los Angeles delegation, will win easily, and Hideout should have no difiiculty in getting more than enough votes to elect nun. Estee to all appearances has everything pretty much his own way, and Hums in his ab sence is keeping his fences up in good shape, Burns is not making much fuss about it. but is smilingly- confident as usual, and says Estate will go through without much opposition. . This fact has been a bitter pill for Mike to swallow, aud lie is angry that it is so. On bis arrival here he sent at once lor Martin Kelly and proceeded to "roast" him for letting Esteo grow SO strong. It turns out now that Kelly had the coutract to keep Esteo down, and his failure is looked upon as little less than a emtio by Da Young. Salt Against the Bop) Trust. New Yohk, May 3.— Tho [Tatted States Government is about to institute legal pro ceedings, under the Sherman anti-trust law, against tiie National Cordage Company. Charles M. Hoi ton, Special Agent of the Department of Justice, has been in this city almost continuously for more thau a month collecting evidence. RESTRICTION OF CHINESE. Adoption of the Conference Report by the Senate. * PACIFIC COAST DELEGATION PLEASED. Democrats Diwiming Revision of the Tariff—Op position to Free Lumber and Barley- Edi son's Delayed Patents. .Special to The Morn-iso Cali. Washington-, May 3.— The members of the racific Coast delegation in Congress all express themselves as being well pleased with the Chinese bill as reported by the conference committee and adopted by tho Senate to-day. They are unanimous in the opinion that it is a great improvement over the existing laws. In the Senate to-day the conference report was opposed by Sher man, Dawes, Frye. Piatt, Palmer and Call, and was favored by Diilph, Morgan, Vest and Riscoek. Senator Palmer has utterly ruined his chances forthe Presidential nom ination, in the opinion of somo of his friends. It was a surprise to many that Iliscock was arrayed on the right side, but he has evidently heard from some of the labor organizations iv his State; likewise Dolph. It is believed that there will be but little more opposition manifested to the adoption of the conference report by the House to-morrow. Discussing the Tariff. The Senate Committee on Finance has not yet considered the tariff bill.-, passed by the House. There was a meeting this morning devoted to a discussion of the bill amendatory of the direct tax acr. Chairman Morrill, who with Senator McPherson con stitutes the sub-committee to inquire into the effect of the tariff laws on the trade rela tions between this country and Canada, is authorized to present -a report to the Sen ate that it nifty be printed and recommitted. The Democratic members of the Ways and .Means Committee listened this alter noou to Democratic members of the House, who expressed their views on the tariff bills pending before the committee. It was evi dent that there was quite a number of Dem ocratic members unfavorable to report the free-lumber bill a: this session of Congress, and at least' one member was opposed to the reduction in the duty on barley. The opposition to the lumber bill came from North Carolina and the great lake States in the Northwest, on the ground thai the duty should not bo taken off unless com pensatory benefits were given by the gen eral tariff reduction bill. The committee was urged to place refined sugar on the free list, and make lower duties uu thread and bteel rails. Compensation for Currying th* Malls. The proposition made by the House Post office Committee in the postal appropria tion bill to ie luce the compensation to the land-grant subsidized railroads for carrying the mails to 30 percent of the rate allowed nonnided railroads, as the law at present provides 50 per cent, has awakened vigor ous opposition from the land-grant rail roads, and they are protesting against the proposed legislation as unjust and unrea sonable. To-day the representatives of a number of these raiiioads appeared before the committee aud stated the reasons for their opposition. r-.i-.n-, Delayed Intents. The Commissioner of Patents has issued three patents to Thomas A. Edison, as signor to the Western Union Telegraph, covering the features of a speaking tele phone. The original application was filed in 1877. Owing to the intervention of otlier a i plications covering the same invention the patents were delayed. The latest oh fetacld to tlie issuance of these patents was the Berliner application, upon which a patent was issued last November. These inventions of Edison have been granted foreign patents, some of which have al ready expired. This raises the question whether an American patent issued after the expiration of a foreign patent is valid, the application for an American patent hav ing been filed prior to the date of the grant of the foreign patent. This question will, it it is thought, be brought before the United States Supreme Court, seveial* Circuit Court Judges having decided it in the negative. An amendment to the sundry civil appro priation bill ti -day was reported from the ."senate Committee 00 Military Affairs au thorizing the Secretary of War to establish, not to exceed two, military posts at points on the northern lrontier where bo may in bis judgment deem I t.f or the public good. CO IV Git S. TIIK SKX.ITE. Conference Report on Chinese Re « trietion Adopted by 30 to 15. Washington, May 3.- In the Senate, after the usual morning busiuess, Morgan called up the President's message on the Internationa] conference as to silver coin age. Dolph tried to get action first on the con ference oh the Chinese exclusion bill, but Morgan refused to give precedence to that subject, remarking that there was not so much pressure about it, that the Senator fro in South Dakota, who desired to address the Senate, might not have the courtesy of appearing. Kyle then proceeded to address the Senato in favor of the free coinage of silver. At the close Of Kyle's speech the message was again laid on the table, Morgan giving notice that he wanted to speak on it. The conference report OR the Chinese ex clusion bill was then laid before the Senate. As soon as it was read Sherman stated though a member of the conference com mittee he was unable to sign it. Ho was very willing to provide for auy necessary legislation for thn restriction of Chinese labor, and thought the Senate bill had dons so very broadly. He looked upon tho In* (reduction of. Chinese laborers through Can ada as an insult to the United States*. Such incidents created an excitement wliich some day might be tho cause of a great difficulty. Those who believed that the United States had a right to trample on a treaty and dis regard it might vote for -the conference re port without compunction, but ho did not feel at liberty to do so. Dolph of Oregon defended the report. Dawes opposed it as being a violation of the treaty. Vest was not disposed to violate treaties, but considered that self-preservation was the first law of nations as well as of mdi Inula. Palmer could not vote for the conference report because of the provision that China men coming to the United States could not be admitted to bail, which was unnecessarily harsh; also becnuso of the provision for the arrest of Chinamen not provided with cer tificates. The vote was then taken on the confer ence? report, which was agreed to by 9 * ayes, 15 noes, . The vote was as follows: Ayes— Messrs. Allen, Allison, Chandler, Cockrell, Cullom, D .iph, Felton, Hinge r, Gorman, Hansbfoogh, Harris, Hlscock, Jones of Arkansas, McPherson, Mitchell, Morgan, Peffer, Perkins. Power. Ransom, Sanders, Shown, Squire, Stanford, Stewart., Stockbridge. Vest, Walthall, Warren and White -ao. Noes— Messrs. Bate, rail. Colquitt, Dawes, Dixon, Frvc. George, Gray. Higgins. Kyle, Palmer, Piatt, Pugh, Sherman and Wil son- I". The House bill placing binding-twine on the free list was laid before the Senate and referred to the Finance Committee. After an executive session the Senate adjourued. the not; si:.. The Diplomatic. Appropriation UUI Fussed After A in en ilm cut.

The Melbourne Murderer Contemplating Sui- cide-He Will Write a Book? Ml i. not May 3.— After Deeming was conveyed last night from the courtroom In which the seuteuce of death had just been passed upon him and returned to jail his clothing was taken from him and he was compelled to don the attire of convicts. He was then placed in the condemned cell and heavy lions were locked upon his wrists to prevent him from committing suicide. There is scarcely a doubt that he would kill himself If the opportunity offered. A close watcii will be kept upon him to see that he does not cheat the gallows. He did not appear at all cast down by his fate, and, after a short conversation with the wardens detailed to watch him. threw himself upon the pallet in the cell and slept calmly until morning. • Much interest is manifested in the biog raphy Deeming is writing, upon which lie has spent much of his time since he was im prisoned. It is believed the man's over weening vanity will compel him to confess in this work ull the crimes he ever com mitted. Hy appealing to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council Deeming may succeed in putting off the execution for a time, but his baste In complete his book shows that he has little, if any, hope of escaping hang ing. Early this morning he resumed the writii of his biography, which, lie says, he will bequeath to Miss Rounsevell, the young lady to whom he was engaged at the time of his arrest. Be expressed the b ope that the profits which she may derive from its publication will in some degree compen sate her for the wrong and annoyance which ho has been the means of inflicting on her.

The Wife of Michael Walsh of Cliieago Cruelly Butchered. ; SIXTY-FIVE TERRIBLE WHOM JADE. '- ; ' *'• '-" ' The Ghastly Discovery Made by Her Husband on Returning From His Day's Work— The Assassin Arrested. Special to The Morning Cali. Chicago, May 3.— murder that rivals for cruelty . and horror the fate of the numerous victims in the London White chapel district was committed between and 6 o'clock this evening in the home of Michael Walsh at 344 Washburne avenue. The victim was Mrs. Bridget Elizabeth Walsh. Walsh left home for his work as usual this morning, leaving his wife following her cus tomary occupations. Walsh returned home a few minutes after 6 o'clock, found the frontdoor locked, and gained entrance to the house through the kitchen. A fire was burning in the stove and the evenine meal was partially prepared. The appearance of the room attracted Walsh's attention as being peculiar, and he started in search of his wife He searched through the house and, not finding her, began to fear that some harm had befallen her. Noticing a strong and disagreeable odor from the bedroom,, tie relumed tiiere and made a more minute examination. The room was partially dark, ned, as the window curtains were : lowered. He raised them and a pile of rags met his gaze. " The first piece of cloth he lifted was stained with blood. He then threw, the pile aside, and thereon the blood-stained carpet was the nude body of his wife. Sixty-five gashes, varying in length from half an* inch ■ to a fool long, told the story of death that came only after a violent struggle, as was shown by the disarrangement of tin* furni ture and the splattering of blood. Not sat isfied witb killing his victim, the slaver so horribly disfigured the corpse even Walsh could hardly realize that he was gazing on the dead body of his own wife. From the crown of the woman's i head to her feel cuts were in every con ceivable direction. The wounds were most numerous on the breast and lower limbs, where the flesh was ripped and hacked in places until the skin hung in shreds. Along the upper part of the right leg was a gash over a foot In length ; along either side of this wound was a row of smaller gashes made with uniform length and evenly ■ arranged, as if to give a horribly artistic finifh to the work. '■'■•■] » ■'_""- ■■■■-■ Over each eye was a deep gash, another beneath the right eye, another along the lelt cheek aud still another on the neck under tiie chin. In the left breast, imme diately over the heart, was a pair of long blKded shears that had been driven Into the flesli. Immediately under them was a small, round hole resembling a bullet wound, but there was no trace of powder-stains, A broom that had evidently been carried from the kitchen into the bedroom had been broken nnd the handle was thrust through the entire length of the woman's trunk, nnd pieces of the vital organs had been torn •riff and carried along by the blunt end of the wood, and the mouth was filled with a mass of blood and flesli. .? y All the wounds were evidently inflicted by shears. The edges of the cits were Botched. At the lower part of the trunk was this especially manifest, where tho flesh was cut and torn. For a moment tno sight of bis wile's body so unnerved Walsh that lie was unable to act. Recovering him self, he notified the Dolice. Upon arriving the police examined the room where the body was found, and en the narrow bed were three pillows covered with blood. On the wall also there were great splotches, the bed clothing was stained, and the rags which covered the body, among which aiso was Mrs. Walsh's clothing, were saturated with blood. ■■-'■ -,-..: The police made a hasty survey of the situation and started on a search for the perpetrator of the outrage. Their efforts were rewarded, for within four hours the self confessed murderer was arrested in the per son of Thomas Walsh of 143 Washburn ave nue, the dead woman's nephew. When the prisoner was taken to the station he acknowl edged that he was the guilty party, and said lie ami Mis. Walsh had been drinking to gether and he had made an Improper pro posal to ner. whereupon she slapped his face. He drew a knife and slabbed her. The sight of blood suddenly drove him in sane, with the result that lie mangled and tore the poor woman as related above. TEED'S CONVERTS. The California Contingent Arrives in the City of Chicago.
