VOLUME LXXIII-NO. 14.
FAITHLESS CANADA
No Obligation Has Been
Sacred.
WHERE THE TROUBLE CAHE.
President Harrison Would Never Yield
the Free Navigation of the Hud
son to a Foreign Power.
Special to Tut Moknino Call,
Washington, Doc. 13.— The attention of
Secretary of State Foster has been called to
a lengthy interview with the Canadian
Finance Minister Foster, telegraphed from
Ottawa, In which the -Canadian severely
criticizes President Harrison's annual mes
sage with reference to the allusions to
Canada. Speaking of the reciprocity mat
ter. Secretary Foster said that during the
conference last win Mr. Blame did not
insist on a. uniform tariff for both countries,
but did ask that tbe schedule bo not con
fined to natural products but that it also
include an agreed list of manufactured
goods. The fishery question covers more
than a century of voluminous discussion
and prolonged controversy, but the most
limited examination of it shows that at
every step In Its history the exacting and
unreasonable demands of Canada have
frustrated the otherwise harmonious adjust
ments of the difficulties between Great
Britain and the United States. This was
especially noticeable in the fur seal contro
versy. It is a well-known fact that In 1888
the subject bad reached a complete basis of
settlement in London between Lord Salis
bury and Minister Phelps when Canada's
remonstrances defeated the arrangement and
precipitated the two Governments into a
bitter discission, out of which has grown
the Bering arbitration.
"The Canadian statement of the issues In
volved in the controversy is also mislead
ing," said Secretary Foster. "It is not a
question of free fishing in the high seas.
The Government of tbe United States does
not claim that Bering Sea is mare clausum,
and dees not seek to restrict the legitimate
freedom of the ocean ; but, in the language
of Mr. Blame, 'it does claim that the law
of the sea Is not lawlessness.' It holds
that the fur seals born and reared on the
Pribylov Islands, on which they spend a
large part of their existence, and to which
they return with unvarying instinct, rep
resent a large and valuable interest and
industiy and should not be permitted to be
exterminated by the inhuman methods of
Canadian poachers.
"The Canadian Minister clouds the canal
controversy by shifting tbe real ground to
an alleged comparison of the relative ad
vantages the two countries will derive from
er.ch other's concessions under the treaty
of Washington in the matter of navigation.
The whole movement is evidently designed
to force the United States to yield to Canada
free navigation of the Hudson River, a
concession which was left unconsidered in
the conference which led up to the treaty
tf Washington. The navigation of Lake
Michigan by the Canadians was made then
the express equivalent of tne navigation of
the St. Lawrence River.
"Every attempt to bring about a better
understanding of the canal tolls has been
met by a demand from Canada tbat free
navigation of the Hudson River should be
thrown In by the United States as the price
of Canada's fulfillment of the simple terms
of the treaty of Washington. All nations
bavo carefully guarded their internal ave
nues of communication and their coastwise
commerce from foreign Intrusion, and the
President has neither inclination nor power
to pay the price of its surrender in this In
stance to secure the observance by Canada
of what he regards as plain treaty obliga
tions."
Secretary Foster also devotes some space
to Canada's attitude toward our railway
traffic, and says our tolerating of the opera
tions of the Canadian railway system thus
far has been only one of many instances of
the forbearance of the executive and a dis
tinguished mark of desire to cultivate
friendly relations with Canada.

A Victory Won in the House by the
Committee on Ways and
fteans.
Special to T*Be Morning Cali.
Washington, Dec. 13.— Vest's resolution
regarding Indian Territory was discussed
in tne Senate to-day during the morning
hour and then went over without action
until to-morrow*. *w— :: ; : ;"* :
In the course of the discussion Piatt of
Connecticut took an advanced position in
favor ol putting an end to the existing an
omalous condition of.thiug6 by the establish
ment of a regular Territorial government
in the Indian Territory.
Among the bills introduced ana referred
were the following:
By Gallinger— For the suspension of im
migration certain circumstances.
By Mitchell—To provide for a national
encampment of militia at the World's Fair.
By Cullora —To amend the Interstate
commerce law.
By Peffer— To facilitate promotion in the
.navy. .P- : ,!
By Felton— For the relief of James Joy
by placing him en the retired list of the
army as lieutenant.
George addressed the Senate in favor of
the anti-option bill. It was alleged, he said,
on the part of the Cotton Exchange that tbe
passage of such bills would be disastrous
to farmers; but, on the other hand, the
farmers of the Southern States, as well as
tho farmers of the West, with almost one
voice, demanded the enactment of tne same
measure to prevent dealings in futures. The
cotton-growers every year were becoming
poorer, and were made the victims of a
rapacious policy, which had taken their
earnings and added the amount to tbe over
grown wealth of men who used their po acts
for that purpose. George quoted from the
rules of the New York Cotton Exchange
to show that quotations were not fixed
according to the actual traffic in the market,
but by a sliding scale established by the
revision committee, which met only- once ■«
month. "Who. gave the New York Ex
change authority to fix prices for the cotton
of Mississippi, Arkansas and other Southern
States?" he asked. "No one, and their ac
tion was impudent usurpation."
Before the conclusion of George's speech
the Senate went into executive session aud
confirmed the following nominations:
P. B. Cheney of New Hampshire to be
Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Pleni
potentiary to Switzerland; G. M. Lambeit
son of Nebraska, Assistant Secretary of
the Treasury; M. R. Rose of Ohio, Assist
ant Commissioner of the General Land
Office; I. A. Benton, United States Marshal
lor Utah; Thomas Eraser. Registrar of the
land office at Sacramento, Cal.; Judges of
Probate in Utah, Charles Foote of Juab
County, W. W. Wallace of Sevier County,
and C. A. Herman of Toole County.
IN THE HOUSE.
The Ways and Means Committee
Wins a Victory.
Washington, Dec. 13.— la the House
the Committee on Rules reported back
favorably the resolution offered by Wilson
(Dem.) of West Virginia directing the Com
mittee ou Ways and Means to inquire aud
report on the present condition of the.
treasury and the future probable revenue
under the existing laws.
This settles the contest between the ays
and Means and Appropriations committees,
both of which have been anxious to secure
tho handling of this investigation. Then,
after the Rules Committee had reported,
Breckinridge, of the Appropriations Com
mittee, tried to get throngn a substitute
dividing the work between the committees.
It was defeated. The members of the
Ways and Means Committee were at once
informally notified that a meeting of the
committee would be held this week to begin
the Investigation. It will be made, accord
ing to Mr. Springer, by tbe full committee
in open session.
The Senate bill enlarging the provisions
of the act for the distribution of awards
under the La Abra claims was passed. The
effect is to refer the whole matter to a
court of claims, with power to appeal by
either party.
The House then adjourned.

SAN FRANCISCO, WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 14, 1892-EIGHT PAGES.
FALL OF ROUVIER.
Corruption Reaches High
in France.
EVEN THE CABINET TREMBLES
Charges Against the Minister of Fi
- nance Compel Him to Resign "
His Post of Trust.
Special to The Mornivo Call.
Paths-, Dec. 13.— Clemenceau has written
i letter to the Figaro relating that on the
eve of the death of Baron Reinacn the lat
ter came to see him with Rouvier, Minister
of Finance, and asked him to go and find
Cornelius Herz in order to stop the attacks
then being made. Clemenceau accepted,
and went with Rouvier to Herz, who, how
ever, declined to say anything.
Baron lieinach at that time said: "If we
do not succeed I am lost. Let us go to
Constats." All three went to see M. Con
stans, who declared that he could not do
anything. On leaving, Baron Reiuach said,
'I am lost." The letter ends with thee
words, "After which I saw him no more."
- Clemenceau's letter has greatly compro
mised Kouvier in the Panama affair and to
day the latter resigned his position as Min
ister of Finance. Notwithstanding bis
resignation Kouvier will be summoned to
explain his counectlon with the affair to the
investigating committee. Her/ will also be
summoned, but it is extremely doubtful if
he will appear.
In the Chamber of Deputies, following
the publication of Cleinenceau's letter,
Kouvier confirmed the statement made by
• iemeneeau that he and Reinach had visited
Clemenceauon the eve of the Baron's death,
and that tho three visited Herz to try and
induce him to use his influence to stop
the attacks on Reinach. Herz Informed
them that it was not in bis power
to stop the attacks and the -• vis
itors left. Paul Deroulede made a violent
attack upon Rouvier, declaring that he
ought to be compelled to appear before a
court of justice to answer the charges
against him In connection with his
conduct while holding -a ministerial posi
tion. Rouvier said be was ready to answer
thechaigesin any court, adding that he
had visited Reinach solely from motives of
humanity. Rouvier's resignation will prob
ably result in an extension of the official
life of tbe Rlbot Cabinet.
Shortly after Rouvier's visit to President
Carnot it was officially announced that the
Finance Minister's resignation had been
accepted, and Tirard was appointed to
succeed Ruiivier.
Premier Ribot has decided to make the
Poissetln bill a cabinet issue and will stand
or fall by the Chamber's rejection or adop
tion of that measure.
So far as Clemenceau is concerned the
end of his revelations Is not yet. In to-day's
issue of La Justice, his own paper, he dis
tinctly denies that Heiz used the columns
of that journal to puff his enterprise. Ho
admits that Baron Reinach and Rouvier suc
cessively visited him on the right before
Rriiiacb's death, but be was out nnd did
not see them. Rouvier had explained to
him in the lobby of the Chamber that
Reinach was being driven mad by the cam
paign organized by the papers against him,
and it was for him a question of life or
death and he had wished that Rouvier
would a-fcompany him to see Herz at;d In
duce him to use his influence to stop the
attacks. Accordingly Kouvier and the
Baron, accompanied -iy Clemenceau, vis
ited Herz together. Herz declared be could
not render the service required.
TAKING A WIDE RANGE.
The Panama Investigation Will Cover
Nearly Everything.
Paris. Dec. 13.— The Panama canal in
vestigation committee, by a vote of 12 to
7 rejected Barthous' proposal that allega
tions not connected with the Panama ca
nal affairs should not be beard. . It decided,
however, to cancel all persona! evidence.
The Temps to-day says that a chemical
analysis of the viscera of Baron de Reinach
disclosed the presenre of atropine in the
organs examined. Keinach's valet, in tes
tifying before the magistrate, admitted that
he found a bottle of poiStn beside the
Baron's dead body.
The committee's decision to bear evidence
not directly bearing upon the Panama ca
nal scandal caused great consternation
among the Republican members of the
Chamber. A. meeting of the various Re
publican factions has been called for to
morrow to consider the future course of the
Republicans in view of tbe present agita
tion aDd the unexpected extensions of the
Panama canal inquiry.
REINACH WAS DESPERATE.
Suicide Opened to Him the Only Road
to Safety.
Par;-, Dec 13.— Gaulois publishes
what purports to be an account of the last
hours of Baron Reinach. The story con
firms in many particulars what already has
been stated and credited to rumor. The
paper sty* that after the fin si Interview be
tween Reinach, Rouvier and Herz the
Baron found all hope of escaping the con
sequences of his connection with the Pan
ama affair gone. He returned home at
midnight, wrote several letters, destroyed a
number of documents and then swallowed
poison. The paper tells the story with
great particularity of detail. The genera
opinion is that Reinach was, with Arton,
one of the "useful" men of the Panama
scheme, . it is known be bandied large
sums for the company, and the Panama
investigating committee Is now trying to
learn to whom the money was paid and for
what services.
The revelations made by Clemenceau as
to the visit paid him by Reinach and Rou
vier on the eve of Reinach's death has
caused consternation among the supporters
of the Government, and it Is said that
another Ministerial crisis is impending,
and that another upheaval may be expected
jit any time. 5
LIKE A FAIRY TALE.
Ciemenceau's Story Hardly Credited
in London.
London. Dec. 13.— Tho Paris correspond
ent of the Daily News says: The Figaro's
Herz article reads like a fairy talc. Much
of it is true r.nd much of It fancy. Nearly
all its conclusions are strained and twisted.
De Freycinet intends to testify as to the
honesty and ability of Herz. who has been
a friend of bis for many years.
Senator Girault has tabled the bill to give
the widest jurisdiction to the Panama canal
investigating committee, to collect evidence
and proposing to refund to the company all
the sums Illegitimately expended.

AIM OF THE PROSECUTION.
To Get the Question Before a Higher
Tribunal the Accused Condescends
to Answer the Committee.
-
Fecial to The Morniko Cali.
New. York, Dec. 13.— The Brig?*; trial
was resumed to-day, and the galleries of
the church were crowded. Among the
prominent people In the galleries was Mrs.
Cleveland. The large attendauce was due
to the fact that Brings was to answer /the
charges'. He read his answer from a
printed pamphlet/ He considered the
points of the prosecuting committee's argu
ment, and asserted that the lines of prose
cution adopted by them were illegal and
dishonorable. Much of McCook's argu
ment was devoted to the exposition of the
fourth and seventh charges, which had been
ruled out by the presbytery. By thus de
fying the preebytery, tho prosecution
had succeeded in the scheme of send
ing the case to a higher court hereafter
for argument in support of the truth of the
charge-*. The defendant argued on the
evidence adduced by the prosecuting com
mittee to sustain charges 1, 4, 5 and 6, and
these charges he said should be thrown out.
There had been no proof offered yet that
be had been guilty of heretical teachings,
and if this were a civil court he should
stop right here and ask that the csso be dis
missed. But recognizing the fact that this
trial was merely for the putDoso of carrying
these charges to the higher ecclesiastical
tribunal he was forced to consider them on
their merit-*.
Brlggs then proceeded to take op suc
cessively tho charges and specifications and
give a categorical response In his argument,
which was remarkable for wide research,
profound erudition and close reasoning.
He first called atteution to the preliminary
principles regulating all trials for heresy
in the Presbyterian church In the United
States, which, he said, had been entirely
disregarded by the prosecution in its argu
ments upon tbe amended charges and speci
fications. The Presbyterian law requires
that the charges shall set forth that certain
teachings are in irreconcilable conflict with
certain doctrines which are essentia/ and
necessary to the integrity of the Westmin
ster standards and to the proper reading of
the Sciiptures. As to dangerous errors, net
In Irreconcilable conflict with essential and

Dr. Brigjs next considered the question
as to whether the Bible was the only foun

SHITH SUSPENDED.
There Was a Close Vote in the Cincin
nati Presbytery.
Cincinnati, Dec. 13. — The Cincinnati
Presbytery, by a vote of 31 to 27, as unoffi
cially retorted, has pronounced against
Rev. Dr. N. P. Smith, as follows:
"Dr. Smith is suspended from the min
istry of the Presbyterian church until such
time as he shall make manifest to the satis
faction of the presbytery his renunciation
of the errors he has been teaching, and un
til It shall be found that he has a Inly and
solemn purpose no longer to teach or
propagate them."
The majority of the committee favored
rebuke, but by the close vote already given
the decision was in favor of his suspension
from the ministry.
The acquittal on the first charge and the
clcseness of the vote on the others and on
the sentence arc taken as good reasons why
Professor Smith should appeal to the Ohio
Synod an 1 to the General Assembly, but on
the other hand it Is said to be known that
the feeling of the synod is such that an ap
peal would be vain, except as a step toward
reaching the General Synod.
There is deep feeling in the Presbyterian
church over the progress and result of the
trial, and many see in it. the opening wedge
for a division of the church.
To-morrow morning the presbytery will
meet for the purpose ot approving the
record and of passing sentence upon the
convicted member.
Dr. Smith said to-night that he did not in
tend to let the matter rest here. He says
he will appeal the case to the synod, which
meets next September, and in tho mean
time he will continue in his professional
chair at L-*ne Seminary.
SLOWLY POISONED.
A Baby Killed Because It Would Have
Inherited a Fortune.
Pittsiui*.,, Pa., Dec 13.— Four years ago
Joseph Guthrie, a civil engineer, died on a
farm near Lit robe, Pa., leaving his prop
erty In such shape that his infant son would
inherit about $50,000. A year or more ago
the child became ill, ami subsequently it
was supposed was being slowly poisoned.
Great efforts were made to save the little
fellow's life, and the mother finally took the
child to California, hoping that a change of
climate would restore its health, but It was
of no use. The ilttle one was doomed, and
last week died from tbe effects of pneumo
nia and from abscess of the stomach. Tho
abscess, it Is supposed, was the result of
poison. Mrs. Guthrie Is now on her way
home from the West with the corpse. When
the child first became ill, ho said that some
one had given him a peculiar liquid to drink,
but would not tell who the person was.
TOO MANY HUSBANDS.
Mrs. Painter Took Good Care That
She Married Insured Men.
Green -li Pa., Dec 13.— Mrs. Kato
Painter of this city was to-day arrested on
a charge of poisoning her husband. George
Painter, a well-known citizen of this place.
Painter died very suddenly and under sus
picious circumstances about six weeks ago,
and an analysis of his stomach showed the
presence of sufficient arsenic to have pro
duced death. Mrs. Fainter has been mar
ried three times. Her first husband was
killed on the railroad and her second hus
baud died shortly before her marriage with
Painter. His ailment was said to have
been quick consumption and ho left a leg
acy of $3000 insurance money to bis widow.
Painter's insurance aggregated over £4000.
The insurance companies have refused to
pay the policies pending a settlement of the
case. Tbe woman makes a general denial.

is claimed, is liable to earthquake:* "The

HEAVY SNOWFALL.
The Storm Was Short, but the White
Flakes Came Down Heavily. .;
Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 13.— The heavi
est snowfall of the season began early this
morning, but stopped before noon. During
that time a depth of from eight inches to a
foot was revealed in various parts of the
Matt. - To-night all trains from the West
are from half an hour to two hours late.
The Kansas Central road was completely
blocked for the greater part of the day, but
traffic was resumed this evening. The snow
is very heavy and in some instances seri
ously interrupted telegraph communication
with the West. In this city telegraph and
telephone wires are broken and mixed up
in an almost endless tangle.
DESPERATE RAIDERS.
Only the Fag End of a Revolution
Along the Rio Grande.
Galveston, Tex., Dec. 13. — Advices
from the Mexican border Indicate that the
Garza outbreak is only the fag end of the
revolution. It is very doubtful if the con-'
spirators really contemplate a revolution.
They seem to be bent mostly on plunder.
In the fight on the Mexican side, opposite
San Ygnacio, in which Captain Seguro. one
lieutenant and eight men were killed, the
bouse in which the troops were garrisoned
was burned over their heads. All their
horses were stolen, also a large number of
carbines and revolvers and considerable
ammunition. After the fight the bandits
immediately crossed to this side.
A special from Laredo to the News says:
This evening a force of United States cav
alry consisting of sixty men under Lieuten
ant H.'dikeu was ordered out from Fort
Mcintosh bound for Seapaea County on a
scouting expedition on the Rio Grande in
search of Garza's bandits. Further Infor
mation Uas been received here of an attack
at San Ygnacio on Captain Seguero, and
that a citizen was killed while sitting in the
captain's quarters. The Mexican soldiers,
forty-five in number, were compelled to
surrender. Five refused and were burned
alive In the building. Five of the bandits
were killed and several wounded.
Kansas City, Dec. 13.— A special to the
Times from Laredo, Tex., says that twenty
five men were killed and several wounded
in Saturday's battle between Mexican sol
diers and the revolutionists.
PLAN OF CAMPAIGN.
How It Is Proposed to Help the Nic
aragua Canal.
Points of the Bill Which Is Now Being
Urged for Passage in Con
gress. •
Special to Toe Morning Call,
Washington, Dec. 13.— M. M. Estce, who
is here on legal business, takes a lively in
terest in the Nicaragua Canal project. To a
Call representative, who called on him to
night, he gave an interesting interview con
cerning the canal aud the prospect of secur
ing legislation to promote the enterprise.
Senator Morgan of Alabama will appear be
fore tbe House Committee on Interstate and
Foreign Commerce to-morrow and argue in
favor of Government aid for the canal, but
Mr. Estee will probably not speak, for he is
Just recovering from a very severe cold.
Mr. Estaa. says that the bill which will be
urged before Congress has been agreed
upon. The capital stock ot the Maritime
Canal Company will be $100,000,000, of
which $80,000,000 will be absolutely
owned by the United, States. The
original canal promoters agreed to
and did pay to Nicaragua $G, 000,000
of unassessable stock of the company, and
to Costa Rica $1,500,000 for the exclusive
right to control and navigate the Sau Juan
River and Lake Nicaragua and for a grant
of laud of more than 1,000,000 acres. When
the Maritime Canal Company was organ
ized by Congress, in order to secure the old
company's rights, it paid to the latter $12,
--006,000 of the capital stock, making iv all
$ir..500.C00 which Congress authorized the
Maritime Canal Company to issue. Tbe re
maining $80,000,000 of stock will be owned
by the United States absolutely and for
ever.
The President Is authorized to nominate,
by and with the advice of the Senate, nine
directors out of fifteen to bo selected from
all political parties. Th 3 engineers are
to make monthly reports of progress made,
and also to make estimates of expendi
tures. The United States treasury will
issue guarantee bends only as the work Is
actually performed, -and in no event to ex
ceed $1,000,000. o :• :^'v-^;
All of the promoters are enthusiastic over
the project, and doing good missionary work
at the capital. The statement is made to
Congressmen that by having this great com
mercial gateway under the economical con
trol and management of the United "States,
low rates of tolls would lie established and
maintained so as to encouiago commerce
rather than to sees to Increase dividends,
which would be the case should a private
corporation control the canal.
For these and other reasons the Nica
ragua canal convention at New Orleans
unanimously favored governmental aid to
build the canal and governmental control
after its completion.
Experts say that the relative benefits of
the Nicaragua and Suez canals are In the
proportion of two to one. The Nicaragua
canal will shorten the distance between
New York and San Francisco by 10,000
miles, while only 3400 miles are saved be
tween Calcutta and London by the Suez
canal; yet that Disraeli was certainly a
long-headed statesmen Is proven by the fact
that the Suez canal has been not only of
far-reaching benefit to England's commerce
and that of the world, but she has also real
ized on her investment In the proportion of
five nnd a ball to one. There is an average
yearly tonnage of 6,000,000 through theTTuez
canal, every ton of which pays $2 50 in tolls.
There Is now in Washington a regularly
organized committee, consisting of fivo
members sent from the New Orleans con
vention, to aid in pushing the canal bill
through Congress. They are all confident
that the bill will pass, although they are
not so confident that it will pass at the
short session.
