architecture as the old one, witn the ex
ception of tha cupola, and the new hotel
was elegantly fitted up and os ened for
business in less than a year after the fire.
Then followed a long era of prosperity for
the State, the city and the hotel.
From 1851 to the time of the fire last
night the building was closely associated
with the history of tiiis State and city. In
parlor P Jefferson Davis and the leading
Southern politicians met and agreed upon
tbe course to be pursued at tbe Charleston
Convention of 1860, and since then tbe fate
of hundreds of aspirants for public honors
was sealed within its historic walls.
Since the war the hotel hr.s been the
central point of the very stoirny politics of
Louisiana. In its rotunda members of
every political party have met to exchange
views and to Giseuss the affairs of tbe
State and nation. Parlor P also has made
for itself a national reputation. It has
been occupied by no less than six Con
gressional investigating committees try
ing to understand the chaotic condition of
affairs which was at one time known as
the "Louisiana question."

The Southern Pacific Makes Another
Request for a Conference.
Chicago. April 29. — Another request
■was received from the Southern Pacific yes
terday for a conference of the interested
lines upon the emigrant question. All
things are ripe for such a conference if
any assurance could be obtained that the
Union Pacific weald be a partner to it, or
would be willing to observe the results of
the meeting as binding upon it.
There is no question bat that the South
ern Pacific is growing v«ry restless under
the present condition of affairs, and it will
bring all the pressure it can bear upon the
Union Pacific. It has tried its hand on
the Hues of the Western Passenger Asso
ciation and has found them immovable.
The only thine that c*n be made to give
way is the Union Pacific, for the other
lines say they will not budge an inch.
They have already given up to tbe Union
Pacific all they propose to surrender.
General Passenger Agent Goodman
made the request to-day for a conference,
and, although no formal ans.ver has as yet
been tendered to him there is much proba
bility that the conference will be held.
The Western Passenger Association lines
were for a time disposed to hold their
regular May meeting at Hot Springs, Ark.,
but they have given up that idea. Kates
nro in too shaky a condition at present to
admit of the general passenger agents
going so far from Chicago. Tue meeting
will therefore be held, as usual, in Chi
Absence of Members Compels the
House to Adjourn.
Washington*, April 29 — Some routine
business was transacted at the opening of
the House yest°riay.
Lockwood of New York reported back
from the Pacific Committee the resolution
calling on the Attorney-General to inform
the Botiße whether the stockholders of the
Central and Western Pacific were liabie in
any way to the United States for reim
bursement for bonds issued under the va
rious acts of Congress authorizing the iisue
of bonds in aid of said road.
The House then went into committee of
tbe whole and took up the army appropria
tion bill, which carries $23,568,264, $477,
--355 less than the appropriations of the cur
rent fiscal year.
During the debate on tbe bill tbe roll
was called u?«der tbe rule, and no quorum
being developed, the absentees were re,
ported to the House, and then at 3:55
o'clock the House adjourned.

Democrats Will Not Risk
a Vote.
The New York Senator Not
Advised of Its Progress.
Supporters of the Tariff Bill Fear
They Lack Votes Enough to
Put It on Its Passage.
Washington, April 29.— The course
which the tariff debate may take in tbe
Senate this week will depend entirely
upon developments from day to day. Tbe
agreement for the limitation of debate on
the tariff to certain hours each day has
expired, and the Republicans have shown
no deposition to renew it. Tbe Demo-
crats have been unsuccessful In the ad
vance of the hour for tbe meeting from 11
o'clock to 12, but they only gel the bill
up each day after tbe disuosal of the
routine morning business by an aye and
i ay vote, and are making progress by el
bowing themselves along. They have not
yet decided whether they will attempt to
extend tbe debate until a later date.
Their programme in this respect will de
pend upon the progress that may be madp
with the compromise now on hand. The
feeling is general on the Democratic side
that if they get a bill which commands the
support of the entire Democratic side of
the chamber the Republican antagonism
will weaken; that the opposition will be
content to make earnest protest, but with
out any effort to prolong tne final vote be
yond the time necessary to discuss the
various schedules in a business-like man
ner and that night sessions may not be
resorted to.
Senator Harris said to-day that he
thought if the Pwepublicans only became
convinced that there was no prospect of
opposition to the bill among the Demo
crats tney woilld yield gracefully to the iu
evitable and allow the bill to pass after
expressing their reasuns for their antag
"If we succed in reaching ihat state,"
he said, "and Republican Senators take
this view of the matter and conduct them
selves accordingly, it win not be the policy
of the Democratic management of the bill
to impose acy unusual hardships on Sen
He declined to say what course would
be adopted in case the developments
should not be as satisfactory as he hopes,
because he would in that event have to
consult with other members of the Demo
cratic steering committee as to the course
to be pursued; but it is known from pre
vious utterances of his that his policy in
case the opposition should continue ob
durate, whether the Democrats perfect
their agreement or not, would be to extend
the hours of the dally sessions, compel the
Republicans to consume all the time de
voted to speeches and force the bill along
as rapidly as possible in the face of the
ppusition. It is even possible that if the
Republicans do not indicate a willingness
to confine themselves to what is called legit
imate discussion, night sessions may be
very suddenly precipitated, as the Demo
cratic leaders teel the early disposal of the
bill to be of the utmost importance.
The Republicans have not yet eiven up
the hope of a schism in Democratic ranks,
and they will announce no policy different
from that which they have been pursuing
until it is made manifest that all the
Democratic Senators have united upon a
Dill. If such unison Is not shown they
will continue the present tactics, with
probably more frequent roll calls and a
more decided protest against longer hours
than have yet been adopted. They have
not yet decided upon a course in case of a
Democratic agreement, but there are some
indications that If one Is reached the op
position will not be so stubborn, as it is
realized that it would in that event be
futile in the end. They are counting on
the absence ot Senator Hill at this time and
tbe fact that he could not have been fully
advised of the compromise under consider
ation. They evidently think it probable
that it would not meet his expectations,
and if it should not they hope for further
dissatisfaction In the party.
There are few set speeches in prospect
for this week. Senator Aldrich will prob
ably speak during the week, and Senators
Squire and Kyle may also ask for time to
deliver speeches. The continuation of the
speech of Senators Quay and Dolpb may
also be counted upon as occasion may re-
Toe House will continue work ou the
appropriation bills this week. The Re
publicans developed a restrictive policy
during the consideration of the diplomatic
and consular bill, which was computed
last Thursday, consuming an entire
week by means of unimportant amend
ments to unimportant item 9. The Demo
crats fear thai) this policy is to be con
tinued In furtherance of a well prepaied
programme to delay the passage of tbe
regular appropriation bill. Should it be
developed during the week that such is
tbe fact a special order may be necessary
to expedite matters. 1
After the completion of tbe army bill,
the consideration of which was begun yes
terday, it is probable Mr. Dockery will be
allowed to bring forward bis bill reported
from the Joint Committee on Expenditures
In tbe departments to reorganize the sys
tem of accounting in the Treasury De
partment, which is designed to reduce
expenditures in the department $180,000.
It is necessary that the bill sbould be
disposed uf before the legislative, execu
tive and judical appropriation bill, now in
process of completion by the Appropria
tion Committee, is framed, as t :e changes
it makes in the existing law must be incor
porated in that Dili, and as soon as it is out
of the way the river and harbor bill is to
be called up. In case the Republicans per
sist in an obstructive programme an at
tempt will be make to pass it a week from
to-morrow under suspension of the rules.
The managers of the House are very
much in earnest in their determination not
to permit any resolutions bearing on the
Coxey movement to gel into tbe arena of
debate. They do not believe this subject
should be agitated. It is intended that the
subject cannot be, by any possibility or
construction, considered privileged, and
any request tor unanimous consent for
consideration will be promptly obj»cted to.
The only way in which the subject can be
discussed in the House is under debate, on
! one of the pending appropriation bills,
and such discussion can only eventuate in
Mutual Concessions Made.
St. Louis, April 29.— After several cod
ferences between Vice-President and Gen

ule of wages a satisfactory arrangement
was arrived at yesterday after some
concessions on both si lea.

social studies that gave their bent to his
writings. lie has published several books
and written numerous articles on various
branches of this subject.
He Mad Not Intended to Fight Jack-
son Until Autumn.
Loxdox, April 30. — The Sportsman pub
lishes an interview with Corbett in regard
to his fight with Jackson, and deposit re
cently made by Davies. He says:
"The Parson is simply bluffing. After
the fight at Jacksonville, Davies, Brady
and myself had a quiet talk, and it was
understood that the fight with Jackson
would not occur until autumn. I would not
have come to England and mapped out a
big programme if I had to fight a mnn In
June, and if Jackson believes all Davies
says, why is he not training instead
of playing? Davies is simply bragging for
advertisement. If Davies will make it
worth my while to close my engagements
by making a small bet 1 will cut short my
tour and fight Jackson when and where he

at Lyons.

Perier, M. JBurdeau, the Minister of Fi
nance, and M. Mnrtin, the Minister of
Commerce, accompanied by many high
officials of the Government, arrived here
this evening in order to inaugurate the ex
hibition yesterday. The Minister met a
hostile reception from the Catholics In the
streets, caused by the recent suspension of
the stipend of the Archbishop of Lyons on
account of his utterances in regard to

nunciation of the law for the maintenance
of churches. During the disturbance
twenty people were arrested, but they
were afterward liberated. The clergy of

of Deputy Marshals.
St. Paul, April 29.— Business will be
resumed on the Great Northern to-morrow.
In some respects the strike situation is un
changed from last night, although there
have been some interesting developments.
The proposition of the commercial bodies
of the two cities for a submission to an
arbitration board of five disinterested per
sons has been generally discussed, being
the chief topic at the union mens' mass
meeting at Labor Hall this afternoon.
Mayor Eustis of Minneapolis and Labor
Commissioner Powell were present and
addressed iho men, urging them to accept
the proposition for arbitration. The sug
gestion was fairly hooted down. At the
same hour, in another part of the city,
President Hill was telling some business
men he wou'd agree to any fair proposi
tion for arbitration ou the condition that
the men resume work at once. President
Hill said he could not tight and arbitrate
at the same time, and made this one condi
tion of immediate resumption of work in
case arbitration was agreed upon.
President Debs privately said he was in
favor of the scheme proposed by the com
mercial bodies, but when lie addressed the
Labor Hall mass-meeting be spoke as a
mouthpiece of a committee whose major
ity is against him and very rßdical, and he
oaid that the men Had demanded justice
and that arbitration wns therefore out of
the question. After this announcement
and the formal rejection of the arbitration
by the masi-meeting Mr. Debs went to his
hotel with other labor leaders for the pur
pose of seeing if it was not possible tocome
to an agreement that would be acceptable to
both the men and the company. So far as
any official action of tne union is con
cerned the proposition tor arbitration has
been rejected, and the strikers are in the
same position as formerly demanding their
last year's pay and admitting no possibiU
uv of a compromise.
The only train sent out to-day was the
one bearing the regulars fr m Fort Snell
ing, under Major Patterson, which started

point they will go to Devils' Lake to help
Marshal Mays to prevent interference.
To-morrow the company expects to start
the usual trains on schedule time and it
will become clearer whether the men will
stay with the union or accept the com
pany's offar to the brotherhoods and stay
at work.

where the soldiers will be turned over to

iroceed with them to Devils Lflke, where
they will assist In making the arrests
which Cronin and his deputies are unable
to make.

striking Jlrakeni-m Frank and cutting a
deep cash. The train was he!d at Fergus
Falls while the injuries were attended to.
It is asserted this was done by a striker,
though he escaped among the cars and his
identity is unknown.
Fargo. N. D., April 29. — The local
members of the American Railway Union
have a scheme on foot which they think
will cause the Great Northern consider
able expense and may result In the com
pany having to pay the salaries of the
Deputy Marshals employed ostensibly to
protect the mails, but In reality, they say,
to enable the Great Northern passenger
trains to run. The men claim that the
company has sent out trains having
neither mails nor mail agents aboard,
although mailcars were attached to each
end of the traiu and they were manned by
United States Deputy Marshals, thus
fraudulently securing the service of the
Deputy Marshals to enable them to run a
train, under the guise of securing the pro
tection for the United Stales mails. They
will lay the matter before Coogress at
Seattle, April 29.— 1t is rumored here
to-night that the Great Northern strike

the agents, operators, trackmen and shop
men. The trainmen have been in session
several hours to-night, but refuse to state
what proposition they are considering.

Batteries— Clarkson and Buckley, Cuppy and
South Sea Islanders Sing at the
The congregation or the Star of the Sea
Churcb on Eightn and Point Lobos avenues,
Richmond, was surprised when at the morning
mass yesterday a choir of South Sea Islanders
participated in the services.
Since the Midwinter Fair opened this congre
gation has on more than oue occasion received
new impressions on the universally of the
r, Jl c cliurc " and Its great variety of faith
ful adherents. About a month ago a Syiian
Bishop officiated before ttiem a mass according
to the Synau rite, and different iv many details
from that of the Latin church. Then the pic
turesquely attired denizens ot Cairo street,
who had been regarded a* followers or Mo
hammed, showed themselves to be devout Cai ho
lies, attached to the same devotions and hold
ing the same b lief.
But yesterday the voices never before heard
In a Catholic Cbuich choir in Sau FrancHco—
deep, fullchested notes harmoniously blended
and softened wl'ii a mellow richness peculiar
to the Inhabitants of the Pacific isl
ands—created an Impression altogether
new and certainly very agreeable. The
South Sea Island natives were trained Iv
harmony and their pronunciation of the Latin
was refreshing because It was not faulty.
About thirty of them occupied tbe choir gal
lery. They attentied mass with reverence,
som - of them leading from latjre prayerbooks,
and some telling their beads devoutly.
The men weie all brave, stilwart fellows,
with good open faces, inetr blic< hatr was
bleached with lime, which Is used in their
home as a protection against the tropical sun.
In dies* they were all alike, each having a
warm blue woolen shirt, tray tweed suit, cap
and comfortable shoes, the last however, being
anything but comfortable to their Ideas. Half a
dozen women dressed in short skirts and bodices
of co:ton stuff aiul flannel shawl«, also attended,
occasionally blending their voices with the war
riors. All were familiar with the mass In Latin
and -antr without a hitch, that would Indicate a
lack of knowledge. The music appioached a
simple chaut, all houah at times it wax tai-en
from celebiated masses. Every word wa» sung
InLitin. Afier the consecration a hymu was
sung In the natives' language as translated by
Fiench priests. It wa* a simple melody, ren
dered much as Hawaiian* sing, with a pleasing
After mass Father Coyle returned to the altar
and gave the rosaiy in Latin, and the natives
i esuonded iv that tongue to the edification of
all present.
These visitors are natives of tbe Wallls and
Kortuna Islands In the South Pacific uudei a
French protectorate. They are under the spir
itual care of Father Joseph, S. J., and Father
Oilveo, both Fienca priests, whose mission is
confined to those Islands. The natives are at
present livinu at the Midwinter Fair.
