J!y Si.-- The "government's silence to the lrss of Hie at l!nrce! na is still unbroken and no statement is vouchsafed giving an e:;act and adequate idea of the bloody in cidents attending the repression of the revolution. Tcm'glh sum mary of the situation show that conditions at Barcelona are great ly emproved and the- belief prevails here that by tomorrow all will be over. No information as to the, num ber of revolutionists court-martialed and shot has reached Mad rid. Throughout Catalonia the sitnation is decidedly calmer and report from other part3 of the county bring news of a similar improvement in conditions. AtMelillathe Moors are ac tively preparing for a new attack upon the Spaniards, but General Marina has been enstructed that as soon as the big army is con centrated to assume the offensive, march out of Melilla and strike a decisive blow. Mexico lias an Earthquake Mexico City. July 31. Mexico City again was severely shaken by an earthquate today. A shock more severe than any yet experi enced, rocked the city for one minute and forty seconds. The first faint swaying came atl2;43, but the nervous people needed nothing more than the slightest tremble to send them pouring out of the stores, office building and dwellings into the street. The shock attained great intensity at the end of the first thirty seconds . and suddenly shifted the direction ot its motion. It began with a long swaying north to south osci llatory motion which changed to a bumping action. No great dam- age was done, though many walls weakened by the three shock of yesterday fell while. any public building were cracked- The national palace suffered considerably. The war office chamber of ambassadors and other sections of handsome build- ing were damaged. The National Life Insurance company building ii r:n 1 1 l . l . : i j-l me ounweii miliums aim uie Cathedral were among the large edifices the walls of which suffer ed.

By a vote of 195 to 183 the house to night adopted the conference re port on the tariff bill. A great republican demonstration follow ed. Twenty republicans vote a gainstthe report and two de mocarts for it. The vote was the climax of an eleven hours' session conducted through the most oppressive heat, and it was enlivened by a dozen or more speeches of a more or less fiery nature. - The temperature did not deter a throng from going to the capítol to witness the closing scenes. The day opened with what appeared to be a part of an or ganized filibuster against --the conference report, when Mr. Mondell of Wyoming demanded the reading of the lengthy docu ment. This proceeded for about an hour and a half when with about two-thirds of the report yet to be raed, Mr. Mondell per mitted the debate to go on. Mr. Payne defended the report and appealed to his republcan , colleagues to support it, prophesy ing at the same time that when the bill was enacted into a law, u wouia meet witn the approva of the country. Mr. Clark, the minority leader and many of his colleagues de nounced the bill and criticised the republican for failing as he all eged, to revise ward and thus pledges. the tariff keep the down party Perhaps the most sensational speech of all was by Mr. Mann of Illinois, republican, who said . he would vote against the report provided the rates on pulp and -print paper -as reduced by the house were not retained. He de nounced that particular schedule and declared that Canada would take such action regarding pulp wood and print paper as to place an almost prohibitive price upon : paper in this country. At o.n7 r, m rb hnnc with ,a "f " " u. roaiiv nho sent to the senate for action, adjourned until Monday at noon. Washington, Aug. 1. Unless something happens to provoke heated political wrangles the new tariff bill should be enacted into a law. and the extraordinary sess- ion of congress adjourned before the end of the week. The senate will -meet tomorrow morning. An inquiry amony the senators opp osed to the conference report idni cates that the debate will be ex .... ... . . tended. Mr. Aldrich has deter mined that the conferee's report shall not be carried into next week. The opponents of free hides will probably discuss that subiect. and the republican who voted against the bill on its pass age many take occasion to expain their motives. Mr. Culberson the democratic leader, is authority for the statement that the de- mocrats will not filibuster against the adoption of the conference report. - Miss Ellen Van Landingham, sister of Mrs. J. F. Woods is here this week visiting with her sister and mother. Miss Van Landing ham, has been spending the sum mer on the Pacific coast at differ; ent summer resorts.
