Three Now and Important Project - iutlic River and Harbor Bill as Amended Arsoclated Pros. Washington, August 10. The crisis in the tariff affairs was reached today both In open senate and the secret coun cils of the Democratic tariff conferrees. When the conference closed tonight :t was the understanding that the meet ings were suspended for the present. No time was set for the re-assembling of the conference tomorrow or there of ter, and It was also said that further sessions might be necessary in case the senate acted1 favorably tomorrow on Hill's resolution directing the senate conferrees to report the situation of affairs. What was of more Importance was the feeling expressed by Uie house conferrees at the close of the conference that in case the Hill resolution passed, and they believed it would, the con ference would practicilly bo relieved of its work, and It would remain only for the house to accept the senate bill as a lesser evil, as they believe, than the McKlnley law. These conclusions were reached after a day of intense ex citement among the tariff leaders. HILL EXPLAINS, He Displays Some Good, Hard, Bound Sense. Washington, August 10. In explain ing his course today, Hill said: "My object In offering the resolution asking for the status of the tariff con ference was to expedite the disposition of the tariff. Every day's delay Is In jurious to the business Interests of the country, and the bill should be dis posed of one way or another. It has been in consideration In the conference committee over a month, and a further delay Ib absolutely inexcusable. It they fan't agree, an act of Buch disagree ment should be reported to the two houses, when, If no understanding can be reached on the bill, congress should promptly adjourn and give the coun try a rest. We have deliberated enough, We want action. Either pass the tariff) bill at once, or adjourn and go Home.- THE RIVER AND HARBOR BILL. Washington. August 10. The river and harbor appropriation bill which has been agreed to in both houses, pro-; viaes tor mree new have long been sought for by the son1 ators who have the credit of their adop' tion. They are a boat railway to over come the obstruction at The Dalles on the Columbia river, another for1 a canal to connect Lakes Union and Washing ton with Puget Sound, and1 the third to begin the construction of a lock In tha Mississippi river between St. Paul and Minneapolis to extend navigation to that place. Tho railway project contemplates a hydraulic lift to raise steamboats out of the water, placing them upon a tramway car running upon eight or more tracks, transporting them thirteen miles and returning them to the water. The estimated cost Is $2,000,000. The canal which Is to con nect the waters of Puget Sound with the fresh waters of Lakes Union and Washington, It is understood, will be a great commercial benefit, because it will give ships an opportunity to an- chor In fresh water after long voyascs In the Pacific. Another benefit Is to be gained by having naval vessels, whilo not in commission, stationed in fresh water. A SENSATIONAL DAT. Washington. Auzust 10.

It Is stated on the authority of a 'conservative senator that the Republican senators will be called In today, and the seir ators wlU make proposition to re. port a disagreement on the tariff Mil. ,nto .v,, H,m ,lay the sen It did not take tho conferrees long to- ate took up th Chinese treaty. day to find out that they could notj come to an agreement on the basis of. free sugar, the senate bill to be ac-j ocpted in other respects. Within half) an hour after the conference began the senate confen-ees left the room and met Gorman. Other conservatives were sent for, and it Is said the point has been reachad where a decision one way or another must be reached. PULLMAN'S MODEL CITY. The Strikers nre to be- Evicted to Make " Room for the New Workmen. Chicago, August 10. Geo. M. Pullman Is back from Castle Rest and Newport, but he declines to be Interviewed. His home is still guarded by private watch men who keep watch on any one who stops to glance at the abiding place of tho president of the $36,000,000 cor poration. The Post prints the following from Pullman: "Pullman's tenants will be evicted." Vice President Wyckes said today: "The company claims that It must have the houses for Its new employes to live in, and as the strikers have been camp ing in Pullman flats without paying a cent for rent, the last three months, they must get out. The company's houses cover about 3,000 people at pres ent. These 3,000 consist of striking workmen and their families. There are about 1000 new men In the Bhops that have families, and they desire to live near their work. The old employes must make way for the new." The eviction Is the very last thing the people liavo looked for. One wom an of Fulton Bnid: "Surely they will not put us out. Where would we go? We have not money enough to buy a bushel of conl. We have no clothes, and tho American public will not stand by Pnd see a thousand families ren dered homelera." Put that Is undoubtedly what must bo done, so It Is necessary that the company take a decisive action. The outlook for the present population of the model town Is not full of cheer. In fact, it. la desperate. DECLINE OF CORN. Report of the Statistician of Agricul ture. Washington, August 10. The month ly report of the statistician of agri culture shows, a decline of corn of near ly 28 points since July "1. The average Is G9.1, against 90 for the month of July. The condition for August, '93. was 97. The great decline Is due almost wholly to the extensive and unprecedented drouth over the states of Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, and parts of other west ern states.

MORE TROOrS FOR SOUTH OMAHA The Strikers Offer Little Reslstence to the Soldiers. Omaha, August 10. Several more companies of troops from the Interior of the state arrived tonight and were at once rushed Into South Omaha. The strikers are quiet and offer little re sistence to the soldiers. But the troops have not relaxed their vigilance on the j peaceful appearance, and squads of ' soldiers constantly patrol the streets 'and a gattllng gun Is unllmbered at the Intersection of two streets where It can sweep In all directions. Many of tho strikers say it was not necessary, to bring the soldiers, and privately intimate they will have re venge.

Tho Lincoln Train Wreck Terriable Affair. IT WAS THE WORK OF FIENDS. Ll Hung; Chang Still Wears the Yellow Jacket Other Tele gropliic Flashes. Associated Press. , Lincoln, Nob., August 10. It was nearly dark before the frightful mass of debris occupying the ravlno where the Rock Island express wan wrecked and burned five miles south of this city last night, had cooled sufficiently to en able the large crowd gathered at the place In a hope of learning something of the fate of friends or relatives, to Inspect the charred mass In detail. The tons of water thrown on the twisted relics of tho train and the bed of em bers had been insufficient to prevent every vestige of tho combustible mat ter being destroyad. Occasionally a charred tkull or a partially burned humanbone was raked from the bed of the furnace, but nothing more re mained to tell the tale of those who went down with the Ill-fated train, and time will be required to determine how many persona were lost In the wrek. The Hat of the killed and Injured ns furnished by tho coroner tonight swells the fatalities to twenty-four, and are as follows: v Killed Dr. J. C. Plnney, Council 'Bluffs. J. D. Matthews, commercial . man, Omaha. Harry Moore, Kansas -City. Iko Depew, engineer, Council Bluffs, W. O. Hambell,. lawyer, Fulrbury, Neb. C. D. Stannard, conductor, St. Joseph.

Puetz, travelling man, Lincoln, Internal Injuries. A passenger named Somerella, hurt about the head. Mrs. Fritz and sister-in-law, Lincoln, bruised. There are two theories as to the wrecking of the train, it being con ceded that, the train was deliberately derailed by the removal of the rails for a part of the way across tho trestle. One theory Is that the strikers from South Omaha did the wor':, believing that state troops who were to have boarded the train At Fairbury were aboard. The company missed connec Hon, however.. This Is not as gener ally credited as the other that an cle ment In Oklahoma who are particu larly bitter against the Rock Island, did the Job, though why they should have oomo such a distance to wreck a train that might have been wrecked nearer home, is not explained. The wreck wan undoubtedly caused by enemies of the road. Thrte men are susplcloned. ENGINEER AND FIREMAN KILLED A Head End Freight Collision on the Northern Pacific. Tacoma, August 10.

Japanese Government Allows Only One sided Reports to Get Out. San Francisco, August 10. Tho steamship City of Pekln which arrived from Hong Kong and Yokohama, did not have a single Chinese passenger on board. There were only a few Japan ese. The Chinese government persists In its refusal to allow any Chinese to leave the country. Among the passen gers on the Pekln was Lieut. D. L. Wilson, of the United States steam ship Baltimore. He states that it Is almost impossible to obtain any relia ble Information from the Japanese pa pers, as the government allows very little news of any Importance to be published, and what the government does allow to become public is so one sided as to be unreliable.
