Deep Sorrow Throughout
AH Fair and Other Festivities
Are Postponed.
A Deluge of Messages of Condolence
Showered Upon the Bereaved
Harrison Family.
Chicago, Oct. 29.— Chicago to-day is
everwhelmed with sorrow and shame.
Her citizens mourn for the man who stood
closer to the people's hearts than any
other who li ved or died within her bound
ary lines, or had been in any way con
nected with the city's growth and prog
ress. The feeling of shame is that just at
the close of the greatest and most glorious
period of her municipal history, just at
the dawn of a brighter period than she
ever before experienced, the dark crime of
murder should leave a red blot on her rec
ord. From all ranks and conditions of
men there comes but one vuice and it is
that of grief.
Carter Henry Harrison without ques
tion was the most popular man among
the residents of Chicago. He had more of
the spirit, audacity, endurance and activ
ity characteristic of Chicago than any
other man.
The feeling of personal sorrow is not
stronger than the mortified civic pride
whi&n burdens them down. There may
be for Chicago days of greater pride or
. higher glory than she has yet beheld, but
there can never be a day of greater grief
or more poignant sorrow.
: The remains of Mr. Harrison lay all day
In the room which was always occupied by
him as a sleeping apartment. Late this
afternoon a death-mask was executed,
and the result is said to be a most lifelike
. representation. To-morrow the body will
be made ready for lying in state at the
City Hall.
Assassin Prendergast Remained
Stolid and Almost Indifferent.
Chicago, Oct. 29. — An iuquest on the
body of Mayor Harrison was held to-day.
Except for a technical description of the
wound, but little new facts were elicited.
The verdict was in accordance with the
facts and recorumeDded that Prenderpast
be beld.or nitider until discharged "oyuue
process of law.
Prendergast was present at the inquest,
and maintained a stolid indifference, ex
cept when attracted by the presence of
Mrs. Chalmers. He asked if she was Mrs.
Harrison, and said he wanted to tell her
he was sorry for her trouble.
The Harrison residence was thronged
with sorrowing friends all day, and the
6idewalks in the vicinity were impassable.
The members of the family were denied to
all but intimate frieuds. All of them
bore up bravely under the terrible afflic
tion, the real significance of which c<uld
hardly be realized by them. Miss How
ard, the late Mayor's fiancee, although
prostrated by the shock, rested quietly
during the day. Telegrams and letters of
sympathy in great numbers were received
from public and private friends of the iate
Mayor in various parts of the country.
Secretary of State Gresham telegraphed
from Washington bis sincere sympathy.
At the request of Mrs. Potter Palmer
the reception in her honor by the National
Commissioners, to have been given to
morrow evening, was postponed in
definitely on account of the tragic death of
the 3layor. The farewell reception of the
French Commissioners was also postponed.
The number of society meetings was legion
and the family is literally overwhelmed
with copies of resolutions adopted.
Ex-President Harrison telegraphed from
Indianapolis: "My daughter joins me in
offering the fullest sympathy in your ap
palling sorrow." Messages of condol
ence were received from Henry Irving
and the Japanese Commissioners to the
Arrangements for the funeral of the
murdered man will not be made until alter
a special meeting of the City Couocil to
morrow. It has, however, been decided
that the obsequies will take place Wednes
day. Mayor Harrison's body will lie in
. state at least one day in the City Hall.
The active pallbearers will be eight po
lice captains. The honorary pallbearers
include Hon. Thomas W. Palmer, H. N.
Higginbotham. General Nelson A. Miles,
ex-Governor Oglesby, Judge Trumbull,
General Filzsimons, P. I). Armour and ex-
Maydrs Roche, Medill and Washlurn.
Seldom has anything awakened euch deep
sorrow among residents ot Chicago as tbe
death of Mr. Harrison. The most signal
evidence of sorrow will be the absence of
. all festivities at the fair to-morrow. Di-
rector-General Davis has issued general
orders announcing the ceremonies sched
ule for to-morrow in connection with the
closing of the exposition to be wholly dis
pensed with and tbe public is requested to
assemble in Festival Hall at 1 o'clock to
take suitable action on the death of the
Mayor. He further ordered flags upon all
inn. dings within the grounds to remain at
• ball-mast.
Prendereast, Harrison's murderer, in
now lodged in a cell in the County Jail.
He stiH sticks to the story that he killed
the Mayor for no other reason than that
he was not made corporation counsel and
insists he had an entire right to act as he
.. . aid.
■.;■. The cell in which Prendergast is lodged
• Is the one in which Louis Lingg. anarcn
• ist, and Dr. ScmJder committed suicide.
When Preudersast was lodged in the
Caunty Jail he was not disposed to talk,
but asked to see the papers. They were
handed him, but the local pa^es containing
the story of the cilme were not given him.
. and he quickly aslted for an account of the
murder. He read it in a mechanical man
ner and then said: "I did my duty."

but I did not hear him say anythine else."
There Should Be Legislation for Pro
tection Against Cranks.
New Yokk, Oct. 29.— Nothing else was
discussed in clubs and hotels to-day but the
cowardly, unprovoked assassination of
Mayor Harrison. The tragedy is uni
versally deplored aud wonaer was ex
pressed by many that the murdererescaped
lynching. One of the most prominent
Chicagoans who is in New Fork is Victor
F. Lawson, who publishes the Chicago
Record and the Chicago Dally News. He
said: "Mayor Harrison was an extraordi
nary man, of tremendous strength and per
sonality, and possessed what is called
great personal magnetism."
Lawson said it must be admitted his ad
ministration has been successful, although
from a high moral standard it could be
criticized. Secretary de Freeste, a Demo
cratic State committeeman, was in favor of
additional legislation to protect people
against cranks.
Ex-President Harrison's Views on the
IxTHAXAroLis, Oet, 29.— Ex-President
Benjamin Harrison was seen to-night and
asked for an expression relative to the
tragedy in which Mayor Carter Harrison
was the unfortunate victim. He said: "It
was a cowardly and unprovoked assault
up n a man in an official position."
"What was the relation between yourself
and the dead Mayor?"
"Well, I can hardly say. We were dis
tant relatives; I don't believe I ever knew
the exact relationship."
"What do ycu think will be the effect of
the killing as regards men in prominent
public positions?"
"The affair lends additional perils to
prominent public characters, especially at
this time. There is always a risk that a
public officer runs; but with the condi
tions of the country as they are, the risk
is increased. When in Washington I fre
quently had the matter In mind and had
some discussions upon it. All men must
have free open air and an outside world to
transact business. I fell rather than
sacrifice this I would suffer to be killed."
City Comptroller Witherell Will As-
sume the Mayor's Toga.
Chicago, Oct. 29.— Oscar D. Witherell,
City Comptroller of Chicago, who by the
death of Mayor Harrison becomes acting
Mayor, is a Republican. He is a native of
New Hampshire, but removed to Chicaeo
many years ago and became a prominent
lumberman. Something like twelve years
ago he was elected to the City Council of
Chicago and served for at least two terms
as chairman of the Finance Committee.
Three years ago he was elected president
of the Globe National Bank, and last
spring, on Harrison's election, Mr. VVeth
erell was appointed Comptroller. He is
about 60 years of age.
Deputies Elected by a Most Un-
popular System.
The Social Democratic Party Has De
cided Not to Take Any Part in
the Campaign.
Berlin, Oct. 29.— Tuesday the election
of the "Wahlmanner" take 6 place, who
elect Deputies to the new Lower House of
the Prussian Diet The fact of the elec-
toral system in Prussia is based on prop
erty qualification, and the indirect suffrage
accounts for the interest taken in elec
tions being reduced to a minimum.
Since the opening Radical campaign
oreans have shown a feeling of antago
nism against each other, and should a
quarrel continue the result will probably
be that the National-Liberals and fol
lowers of flerr Richert's wing of the
Radical party will be the ga iners
against the candidates put for
ward by the election of the party presided
over by Herr Richer.
The Social Democratic party has de
cided as usual upon taking no part in the
elections in view of the present
"wretched electoral system," as they
describe it.

Mr. Gensman Seems to Be in Rather
an Ugly Scrape.
KAMSPF.r.L, Mont., Oct. 29.—Sensa
tional developments have followed tie
killing of Jack White, the Northern Pa
cific train robber, who was shot in the
mountains Monday by J. P. Gensman.
The Coroner's jury commenced an investi
gation Tuesday. The only evidence before
it was that of tbe bandit's slayer, and some
doubt arose as to the identity of the dead
man, which doubt was ripened into sus-
picion that a serious blunder had been
made. The jury found that Gensman
killed White with felonious intent, and
late last evening be was arrested on a
charge of murder.
There is much speculation as to the out
| come of the case.

Why Cruisers Are Ordered
to Brazil.
Great Britain and Germany Favor
the Revolution.
Foreign Interference in Overthrowing
the Republic Would Destroy the
Commercial Treaty.
New York, Oct. 29.— A special to the
Tribune from Washington says: There
can be no doubt of the grave significance
of the orders given yesterday by Secretary
Herbert for the dispatch of the armored
cruiser New York to Rio de Janeiro to
re-enforce the vessels now stationed there.
In spite of the studious efforts in some
quarters to suppress the real status of af
fairs at the Braziliau capital, it is thor
oughly well understood by this time in
official circles here that tne present dis
turbances in Brazil involve oiore seriously
and directly the interests of the United
States than any similar South American
rebellion haa done for many years past.
The success of the movement headed hy
Admiral Mello means in fact the possible
overthrow of the republic, a 'restoration
of the monarchy through foreign interven
tion and an abrogation of all commercial
concessions aud advantages obtained by
this country und-r the reciprocity treaty
of 1891. Advices from Minister Thompson
warning the administration of the dangers
threatened by the intervention of
European powers to overthrow
President Peixoto and establish Admiral
Mello in authority are now, and have
been for some days, In the hands of Secre
tary Gresham. These advices further
state that representatives of several
foreign nations are at present secretly en
gaged in forwarding the interests of Mello
and encouraging such course of action on
his part as will give some excuse for active
interference in the direction of over
throwing the republic.
It is well known that since the procla
mation of the reciprocity treaty between
Brazil and the United States, under which
exceptional commercial advantages were
obtained by this country, the leading com
mercial nations of Europe have been en
deavoring by every means to their power
to neutralize and nullify the concessions
given the United States in Braziliau mar
England and Germany are the chief
rivals of the United States for the trade of
South America, and fought bitterly against
the so-called Mendoncn treaty and even
w«nt so far as to complain against Us rati-
ficstion by Brazil on the ground that the
unusual advantages which werelconferred
by it on the United States had been se
cured by treachery and misrepresentation.
The weight of the European influence in
Brazil has ever since been exerted to dp
stroy the Provisional Government, which
proclaimed the treaty and sought to en
force its provisions, and there can be no
doubt now but that the commercial inter
ests of Great Britain and Germany in
Brazil would be greatly advanced by any
movement which would displace the re
public and terminate the treaty reci
Kumors of the intentions of various
European representatives to Interfere in
the Brazilian disturbances nave reached
Washington for some time past, but it \v::s
only on receipt of Minister Thompson's
official statements thai the President was
spurred to take immediate action to
strengthen the naval forces at Rio, and the
Mew York, as was announced yesterday,
has been ordered to get rearty to sail, and
the instructions have probably been sent
to Minister Thompson so that no foreign
intervention occurs except in open disre
gard of this country's protest.
The Most Terrible Engine of War
fare Afloat Has Been Secured.
New York. Oct. 29.— A morning paper
has the following: Ericsson's submarine
torpedo boat destroyer, the most terrible
engine of warfare alloat, 13 the latest
acauisltion of the Brazilian Government.
It is also the mnst important yet made, or
likely to be made. Like other purchases
it was effected through Charles Ji. Flint A
Admiral Maurltz, it is said, made an
offer for the El Rio, which Iluutington de
clined, thinking his company could not
spare its two best ships. Thereupon the
admiral made a second offer. This Hun
tington is now considering. His decision
is expected by Tuesday, when the El Kio
will arrive in port from New Orleans.
Cattle-Thieves Captured in Contra
Costi County.
Mabtinkz. Oct. 29.— Cattlemen in the
southern part of this county, in tbe neigh
borhood of Tice Valley and Las Tampan
Peak, have for the past five months been
greatly annoyed by the operatious of a
gang of cattle-thieves, who have stolen
many valuable cattle.
* bheriff Rogers was notified and has been
quietly working on the matter, and at last
secured evidence which pointed to Frank'
Posert of Tico Valley and Charles li.
Lame as tbe cattle-thieves, or leaders of
the gang. Acting on this evidence Posert
was arrested on the 20th inst., but Lame
took alarm and disappeared. Word was
received last week that he had been seen
in the hills near his late residence, and the
Sheriff sent Deputy Sheriff Joseph P.
Briare to hunt him up. Mr. Briare is a
brother of Frank Briare. the hero of Fol
som, and is a brave and intrepid officer.
He proceeded to the spot where Lame
waa last seen and for three days and nights
followed his trail up .and duwn
through the hills and finally ran
hts quarry down in a baru into
which the outlaw had crawled to get
some sleep. He gave himself up without
resistance and is now safely locked up in
tbe County Jail. Lame says that Deputy
Sheriff Briare wns too much for him ami
kept too close to him for comfort. It
was his intention the next day to have
left for Oakland and taken a ship to some
foreign land and his knowledge of the
country would have enabled him to bave
done so safely, but he was worn out for
loss ot sleep, having been pursued for day
and night by the untiring Deputy Sheriff.
Tlib preliminary examination of Posert
and Lame will take place next Tuesday in
The Lady hie Introduced In London
as His Spouse.
New York, Oct. 29.— A special to the
World from London says: The news of
Charles Coghlan's marriage to Kuehne
Bbveridge of his company was received
with astonishment and incredulity among
his many frieuds here.
For thirty years Cnghlan has passed as
a married man in London. A lady living
with him during that long period has been
invited and received wherever they chose
to go as man and wife. The supposed
Mrs. Cnarles Coghlan is well known here
in theatrical ana social circles.
She is fifty-eight years old, a refined,
cultured woman, and noted for her devo
tion to Coghlan. She is of dark com
plexion, stylish in dress, and was for
merly very handsome. Latterly she was
inclined to stoutness.
At such houses as those of John Hare,
manager of tin* Garrlck Theater, and Mrs.
Bancroft, F. C. Burnand and others, at
which they were frequent visitors, she was
always received as Mrs. Coghlan, and
was so introduced by htm everywhere.
Mra. Coghlan, as she is known here, be
longs to a Scotch family of good position,
and has a married sister, Mrs. Paxton,
living at Richmond. At ber sister's
house as elsewhere, she was always re
ceived as Coghlan's wife.
Louisville, Oct. 29.— Charles Coghlan,
whose recent marriage to Miss Kuhue
Beveridge created a sensation, says the
young actress who bsars his name is not
his real, but an adopted daughter, and
she is not of illegitimate birth. Her real
name is Gertrude Evelyn Norfolk, and
her pareuts, who are married, are still
living in London.
Disgraceful Scenes at the Capital
City of Lima.
The Followers of Cacares Are Par
ading the Streets and Shouting
Death to Congress.
New York, Oct. 29.— The Herald's
Lima (Peru) special says: The disgraceful
noting here still goes on, unsuppressed by
the police. A group of Cacaresists wont
through the various streets of the city last
night scouting: "Long live Cacares, and
death to congress," abusing persons whom
they met and nourishing revolvers.
The police did not interfere with the
demonstration in any way. Another
jjans: attacked the office of the newspaper
Commercial, which is opposed to Cacares,
and began shouting ihrougU thr windows
and doors at th« employes.
Lima, Oct. '29. — There was no disturb
ance here, though considerable excitement
exists, and th« resignation of the Cabinet
is regarded as certain. Dr. Oalcarel will
enter into the contest for the Presidency.
The Mysterious Death of John J.
Maktinez, Oct. 29.— 0n the morning of
October 10 the body of John J. Maloney
wag found lying besMe the railroad track,
two miles from Cornwall station, with the
skull cut in two and every evidence of hav
ing been killed by a passing train. Upon
examinatiou of the body, however, a bul
let-hole was found in the skull, which led
to the suspicion that the unfortunate man
had been murdered and his body laid be
side the track with toe hope that all evi
dences of the crime would be obliterated.
The testimony taken before the Coroner's
jury strengthened this suspicion, and the
jury returned a verdict of death from mur
der by parties unknown.
Since that time the Sheriff and his depu
ties have b?en hunting clows, and have
secured sufficient evidence to warrant a
decisive step. Yesterday the Sheriff
caused the arrest of Kichard Yates, the
keeper of the salcon where Maloney was
last seen alive, and James Madden, John
Smith, .John Casey, G. A. Cunningham, J.
Devry, John Donele and John Walsh, the
section men employed on the Cornwall
section of the Southern Pacific Railroad at
the time of the murder. They were
brought to Martinez, and are now lodged
in th« County Jail. Their preliminary
examination will be held on Wednesday
next, and the officers are quite confident
that the guilty ones will be held to answer
before the Superior Court.

Their Fierce Battle at
And Drove the Spanish Troops
Back to the Forts.
Terrible Hand-to-Hand Conflict In
Which the Troops Recovered Gen
eral Margalla's Body.
Madrid, Oct. 29.— The battle yesterday
and Friday night about the trenches be
fore Melilla and which, as cabled to the
Associated Press, resulted in the defeat of
General Margalla, who commanded the
Spanish troops, caused a profound sensa
tion here. Tue Spaniards were amazed at
the courage shown by the Moors.
Iv the face of a terrible tire the Moors
charged recklessly, driving the Spaniards
before them aud cutting the telephone and
telegraph wires. The Moors again attacked
with the intention of cutting oil" the retreat
of the Spaniards. The movement would
undoubtedly have been successful had It
not been for the skillful manner in which
the guns of the Spanish warship Venacito
were handled. The Spaniards retreated
iuside the foris. The Moors, regardless of
the danger, succeeded in entering the
Spanish trenches and captured two modern
Held pieces and a supply of ammunition.
The Moors, unable to withstand tho attack
of cold steel in the hands of the Spanish
soldiers, began to retreat. The Spaniards
directed the attack against the Moors who
captured the two guns and who have been
using them fraely against the forts and
Nothing seemed to stand before the
chars© of the Estreruadura regiment and
the battalion of soldiers undergoing pun
ishment for breaches of military law.
They pressed onward, bayoneting the
Moors who made any stand, and managed
to recover the field pieces.
During the panic which followed the
death of General Marealla the Moors suc
ceeded in carrying off the body of the
Spanish commander, and it wa9 this more
than auything else which enabled the
Spanish officers to rally the men and make
the charge which drove the Moora from
the trenches. During the rush onward of
the Spanish troops a detachment of them
pursued the Moors who were carrying
away the general's body, and after a des
perate hand-to-hand conflict the Spaniards
succeeded in recovering the body of their
late commander, and eventually escorted
it into Melilla. No systematic- nursuit of
the Meors wp.s attempted, owio? to the
insufficient force of soldiers at Fort Cab
ralzas, but It is understood that General
Ortega is making preparations to take a
terrible vengeance upon the Moors for the
death of General Margalla when be has
enough men under his command to be
able to make the movement in force
enough to chastise the Moors.
When the steamer brought the details, of
the battle to Malaga the firing was still
proceeding, and it is reported the Moors
had made another attack upon the Span
ish troops. General Ortega is known to
have sent an urgent dispatch asking fur
reinforcements and expressing an inability
to do any more than bold his own until re
inforced by a large body of troops.
Spain is now making war preparations
on a very large scale, which will tax the
resources of the Government to the ut
most. There was a monster demonstra
tion here to-day. Crowds paraded the
streets bearing a banner and singing patri
otic songs, doing everything possible to
urge the Government to hurry forward re
inforcements to Melilla, in order the loss
suffered by the Spaniards may be promptly
Additional dispatches received this even
ing say the fighting was continued to-day,
and it is rumored that there has been a
serious loss of life. The situation of the
Spaniards is said to be growing desperate.
General Camos, commander-in-chief of
the Spanish forces, advised the Govern
ment lo promptly issue an order for the
mobilization of all the reserve troops in
Spain. A crowd of people, excited by the
rumors in circulation, made an attack
upon the civil Governor in Puerto del Sol,
causing the Governor to take refuge in the
bureau of the Minister of the Interior,
where men at the door were severely
beaten by the angry crowd.

An Inscription to Desecrate the
Grave of a Mayor.
Peculiar Political Work of the Amer
ican Protective Association
in Colorado.
Denver, Oct. 29.— The secret organiza
tion, known as the American Protective
Association, now demanding attention at
the hands of Congress, has gained an
unusually strong foothold in Colorado,
and is making a fight to gain control of
the state's political organization. But
little attention was paid to it until after
the local election when it was discovered
the society managed to secure nearly half
the nominations on each ticket. The
people rebelled against this and are now
striving to defeat the society.
Two years ago the present Mayor, Van
Borne, became a member of the society
through misrepresentation. When he
took office he appointed a Catholic as
police inspector.
The American Protective Association
demanded the inspector's removal, aud
when this was refused adopted resolutions
denouncing Van Home as a traitor and
perjurer, and declaring that hi-j grave
9hould lie desecrated. It further resolved
that the likeness of the Mayor, together
with a copy of the resolutions, be dis
tributed to every lodge of the association,
with a request that the same be read, and
"Marion D. Van Home, traitor and per
jurer," be proclaimed at every meeting,
and finally that an unknown committee
shall mark his grave, "Here lies a traitor."
A Commissioner Arrives in the
Kafael Ruiz Valle, Commissioner of In
dustry of the Spanish delegation to the
World's Fair, has arrived in the city and Is
quartered at the California.
Mr. Valle comes with two purposes in
view— one to make an unofficial investiga
tion in regard to the Midwinter Fair, and
the other to make a study of California
wines and vineyards. He expects to be
here for a week or two and goes from here
to Mexico, where he will embark at Vera
Cruz for Cuba and thence to Spain.
"1 am not here to make definite arrange
ments for a Spanish exhibit at your expo
sition," said Mr. Valle last night, "for
that question hRs not yet been decided by
the authorities at home ; but a number of
exhibitors at Chicago have asked me to
learn all that I can about your fair, and I
will write to them what 1 may find here.
"They are willing aud even anxious to
come if they can be convinced that it will
be profitable for them to do so. From a
business standpoint they have not been so
successful at Chicago as they had hoped,
but I believe that they would meet with
different results if they should come here,
You have a more cosmopolitan population
and there would be a better opportunity
for opening up commercial relations
than the Columbian Exposition offered.
"But I am here specially to investigate
your wine industry. lam engaged in the
same work myself, and 1 want to learn all
that I can about your methods. Spain
imports some wine, and the quality of your
product commends itself to me very
highly, and if it could become well known
there, 1 do not doubt but that a market
would be developed for it.
"The Spanish wines are very rich in
color, and also very strong. The sun
which ripens our grapes is so warm that
thp fruit contains a large percentage of
sugar, and the wine is very strong in al
cohol. This is the particular character
istic of all native wines of Spain, and
California wine could be used to mix with
them, and it could improve the quality of
the wine we have to drink, and open an
entirely new market for you.
"The Calif tn ma wines are very good.
You have advantages or methods hero
that we have not in Europe. Your claret
is splendid, and the charupaer.e manufac
tured here is very sweet. Y"ou certainly
have developed that industry very rapidly
and most successfully.
"The. Spanish wines are not expensive,
but those which vye have to import from
France are expensive. The article which
we might obtain in California would serve
us quite as well and would be much cheaper,
and there is every oppi rtunity for the
opening up of a market which would be
quite »h advantageous to us as to you."
Mr. Valle lives in Barcelona and this is
his tirst visit to tne United states, and, as
he says, he Is here to learn all that be can.
It is probable thnt the viticultural com
mission will extend the siime courtesy to
him that they did to Commissioner Gos of
France and give him an opportunity to see
some of tne best vineyards and wineries in
the Slate.

Washington, Oct. 29.— 1f Senator Voor
hees' calculations do not miscarry the
repeal bill will be disposed of by the Sen
ate to-morrow. There will be a few more
speeches and amendments, all probably
voted down, after which a vote on the
main question will be taken. The bill will
be passed by a majority of ten. or, possi
bly eleven, votes, and the long contest
If the House should lose any time in dis
posing of (he repeal bill, the Senate has
quite a large calendar upon which it can
draw for material. It is probable the
Senate during the week will dispose of the
House bill extending the time in which
Chinese laborers may be allowed to regis
ter. The probabilities are that after the
repeal and Chinese bills are out of the way
the time will be devoted to private bills
and other measures of minor importance.
There will also be an effort to clear ud
executive business. Senators are count
ing upon an adjournment or recess by
Prominent members of the House as
sure the Senators that the House will dis
pose of the repeal bill one day after re
ceiving it. When the repeal bill comes to
the House to-morrow or Tuesday, if the
unexpected does not happen, Wilson will
be recognized to move a concurrence in
the Senate amendment. If the silver men
show a disposition to filibuster a rule will
be brought in by the Committee on Kuleg
that will force a vote. A few hours may
be allowed for discussion before the pie
vious question of calling off all debate.
The repeal men expect that 260 members
will be present when the bill comes to a
Every Effort Will Be Made to Push
the Matter.
Washington, Oct. 29.— The Committee
on Territories has for some time been con
sidering the Utah bill, and every effort is
being made by tnoße interested to have th«
bill favorably reported at an early date,
it was expected that the bill would be
completed at Friday's session, but as
Chairman Wheeler of the committee is at
the World's Fair no action was taken.
The bill under consideration is the one in
troduced by W T heeler. Delegate Kawlins
introduced a bill, but the committee de
cided to take ud Wheeler's. It is being
amended in some particulars to meet the
views of the delegate. If the present
session continues any length of time. It is
possible that an admission bill for Utah
will come up. There seems to be little
opposition to it in the House.
A Scoundrel Who Is Doubly to Be
Washington-, Oct. 29.— The State De
partment has received information from
Consul Shafer at Vera Cruz, Mexico, of
the arrest of Brennan, alias Charles ll.mi
iltnn Sbafer. Brennan is the man who
represented himself to be Consul of the
United States at Perote, Mexico, and who
sent out letters to persons in the United
States iv which be pretended to be en
gaged in assisting in settling up the estate
of a deceased person and asked the re
mittance of S'_'s to get the release of the
remains from the undertaker who held
them on a claim for that amount for
burial expenses. Brennan's offenses were,
it is said, committed only constructively
within the United States and it is not be
lieved that he can be extradited for them,
but there can be no doubt that he is amen
able to the Mexican law.
