Hon. OC'OtxoO. Jones of New York , chulr-
man of the natlonnl greenback coininittec , Is
the latest to give an enthusiastic endorse
ment of tbu uew silver coinage law. Mr.
Jones said to your correspondent this after
noon ; "Sincenbout April Slant , when the
price ofliver began to advance , the price of
wheat hiu gene up 15 cents per bushel , corn
about 12 cents per bushel , cotton between t
and' ' cents per pound mid butter nnd cheese
In nearly the same proiwrtion. The .averago
wheat crop of this country during tbo past
fifteen yearn lias been nbout 450,000,000 ,
bushels. The nvorugo corn crop for ten
years has been about 1SOOWO,000 ,
oushcls , Iho cotton crop nbout 17UOOtXK )
pounds , the butter product about l',000lOO (
rounds and tho-clieeso product about 18,000-
001) pounds. This advance would have
uniountci ! to over $ HXOiX,0X ) ) ( ) if It bad come
in time to cover Iho whole of last year's
product of these II vo articles. The advance
in the price of silver during that time has
been 18 cents per ounce , which , when applied
to the fiO.O'JO.Ouo ' ounces of silver annually
produced in this country , would amount to
only .Jtl.OJO.OOO. By these llgurcs you will
sec that the fanners have been benclltted
forty times nt much us the silver minors by
this advance , Yet I am toltt that a pnpor
called the Financier , which claims to repre
sent tbo farmers' alliance , Is complaining of
the silver lobby securing the passage of the
silver bill. "
"Do you think the advance will hold ! " was
nslicd.
"Yes , " snld Mr. Jones , "if the nrescnt bil
Is honestly curried out nnd asufllcient volume
of greenbacks issued to meet the require
ments for the money among American pro
ducers. Silver alone nor silver mid gold
combined will not meet onumartcr < such
requirements , especially for tha next few
years , during which nil onstanding national
bank notes must ho retired. "
"Do you believe the present silver bill will
ho faithfully carried out ! "
"Thnt depends on the president nnd secre
tary of the treasury. I have not aeon either
of them since the bill passed , butamtold that
both hnvo said It will be , and It is sincerely
to be hoped for the sake of American pro
ducers lliatsuch will bo the case , "
"Do you expect a largo attendance nt the
national greenback conference to bo held at
Indianapolis on August " 71"
"From present Indications there will bo ix
fair number present. Of course it Is called
nnd will bo held as n conforcnco of national
grcenbacUers , who will then nnd there pre
serve the great fundamental principles and
name for which they have so long and hon-
i'.stly labored , I do not expect much time
will tw spent on the history or theories of
money. Its history is now generally under
stood by most well informed people , and the
theory of greenback money issued by the
vororinnunt for value received by the gov
ernment has been decided to bo constitu
tional money. Tbo various theories now
being put forward for Issuing paper nionov

Tbo original package bill was before the
house again today on the conference report ,
Which recommended the adoption of the Wil
son bill without the charge of the dot to nn
" 1 , " or tbo cross to n "t. " As soon us the re
port was presented .ludgo Heed of Iowa
moved the previous question on its adoption.
Mr. Oates of Alabama sought , but in vain ,
to get an opportunity for discussion and present -
sent certain ptoiioaitions in the nature of u
compromise ) to tlio house upon which to gel
instructions fora further compromise. There
was a roll call , the previous question was
ordered and after forty minutes' talk , which
was almost entirely 'bj' Judge
Heed and Mr. Gates. the vote *
was taken nnd the Wilson bill passed by a
vote of ISM to IM. The democrats almost to a
man voted in'opposltion to the bill and they
were joined by n handful of republicans , who
were opposed to the extreme stringency of
the measure. Said ono of the latter when
Kikcd why ho opposed tlio report : "Tho bill
was a most remarkable ono and the objections
to it wore pretty fully set forth when the
subject was in the house before. It proposed
to have the police regulations of a state , and
uny that may enact , attach liquors the mo
ment they cross tbo borders ol a stato. They
nmy therefore bo made liable to conilscation
not merely when offered for sale or In n cellar
of u man who has Imported them for bis per
sonal use and that of Ills family , as admitted
by .Judge Hoed , but , If lungimgo means uny-
thinp , o\oi : when in transit , though not des
tined for a point within the state. Thus a
keg of beer .shipped from Chicago to a point
in Montana would bo subject to the police
laws of the intervening states through which
it would have to pass , nnd , If these laws
authorized confiscation , would render itllnblo
to bo poured on the ground in Iowa or any
other stnto on the way. Such legislation Is
not merely unwise , but In my judgment will
not bo upheld for a moment by the courts. I
want to see n law enacted on this subject , but
I want one which will afford some practical
relief , not ono written by a r.ealot who can
not look to tlo effect of the possl-
blllty of tbo enforcement of thnt which
ho bus framed. This was the reason for my
, vote , but there are others almost equally
strong , and 1 cannot understand how gentlemen -
men who hnvo largo dairy interests in their
districts in states where oleomargarine is
prohibited voted for this bill. The house sub-
Btltnto afforded them n jirotectlon which the
Wilson hl'l ' does not , nnd the adoption of the
conference report leaves oleomargarine , low
grade oils mid a host of things in a position
to take advantage of the Lelso decision , with
no hope of any remedial legislation as fur as
they nro concerned by the present congress.
Tains my word for it , " ho continued , "bo-
fore tlio second session assembles
vyou will hear a protest against
this action far louder than that
which followed the announcement of the de
cision o ( the supreme court. This ni-tlon es
tablishes n precedent , ono which other Inter-
cats which ilestro like action will not bo t > low
to tuko advantage of , mid you may now look
fora II Mil of suggestions for llko legislation
which will only servo to point out the luck of
wisdom of this. In its effect , therefore , Ills
us far reaching If not ninro so than any meas
ure which has been acted on ut this session ,
now famous for the important subjects dealt
with. " Tim member whu thus spoke voiced
fairly the sentiments of tha republicans op
posing tlut Wilson bill. All of them have
snld publicly that they itwlrcd legislation ,
but they di-alrcd It along well known path * ,
not measures which , nlmlng to accomplish too
much , full to bring uny benefit.
CIN.NOT UK 10O CAllUH'U
The necessity for accuracy in legislation at
all stages was demonstrated by an Incident in
congress today. 1-nst April u bill wus passed
establishing u land oftlco at Lewiuton , Mont.
In the course of events tha act went before
the commissioner of the general land oftlco
to bo executed. That onlcml discovered thnt
tliaimma of the town win Lowlstown , mul
thnt bu wus not authorized to establish nn of-
tlci < ut that place , In this view the ecrctnry
pf the luUmor concurred uud today the dllll-
t
cully was remedied br the passage of a Joint
resolution changing tlio spoiling of the nnmo
from Lewiston lu Lt-wLitown. The consider
ation of the resolution afforded nn opportun
ity for the tisunl criticism uud complaint of
errors by the clerks.

of the Wilson bill , nnd since his Is n prohibi

morning : "President Harrison will sign the
bill very promptly IM promptly a * ho did the
silver bill for ho Is In thorough ticcord with
the proposition to so amend the Interstate
commerce law that prohibition stated may
have prohibition desplto nny Interference b.v
the operation of the interstate commeivo
clause given us uv the- constitution ,
lown is in favor of the amend
ment by a largo majority and
It will cut a promlnontllgura in the approach
ing camnalgii nnd will do away with nny ox-
cnso whatever for running the prohibition
candidates against republican nominees for
congress. The republicans have given them
thlHiilnc-ndmi-.it and it would bo u grou in
justice for thu prohibittonlsU to put candi
dates In opposition to the regular republican
nominees. Tlmro was some semblance of ex
cuse for the prohibitionists in placing their
candidates In the lield ugiilnntnspulillcaus be
fore the adoption of the amendment to the In-
ter.state commerce law , as they held that a
republican sunremo court bus overthrown the
features of a law which permitted the states
to enjoy prohibition. Now it republican con
gress bos come to the rescue with nil the leg
islation necessary for the status to help en
force the strictest prohibition laws. The

The telegrams from Capo May regarding
the conference between tbo president nnd
Mr. lilalno on the reciprocity question have
excited public interest hero touay , and the
report that they had decided upon a line
of policy for the administration wild
reference to the tariff bill is generally
accepted as true. The president has always
agreed with Mr. Dhiinooa the main points of
the Issue which the latter has Invoked with
so much courage und ability , although ho has
not been so sanguine as to the degree of ad
vantage that might uo gained by
the United States from reciprocity
treaties with the American republics
and the Spanish colonies. This , however , Is
duo more to a difference in temperament
than u difference of opinion. Mr , lihilno Is
an optimist by nature , while the president Is
not. It Is true also thnt the president has
recognized the political advantaged and the
popularity of the propositions Air. Ulnmo has
advanced. There has been no suggestion
concerning legislation for years that has
awakened so much Interest or so much gen
eral approval among all classes of people
irrespective of politics. The president has
watched the development ot public opinion
very closely and is too good n politician to
overlook the effects of its adoption upon the
fortunes of bis party. At thu same time he
has regretted that Mr. liluino's propositions
hnvo not been approved and accepted by the
republican lauicivt in congress , particularly
those in charge of the tariff bill. For some
weeks bo has been holding interviews with
them with the purpose of lindlng some
ground of compromise , some method of secur
ing the advantages Mr. Ulalno seek * that will
meet with the support of the McKinley
faction. It is nn open secret that the I'ierco
amendment to the tarilf , which is njtiodiliud
form of the liluluo proposition , was intro
duced utter consultation with the president ,
if not nt his suggestion. That Mr. IHuino
invited to Capo May by the president to dis
cuss the situation there Is no doubt , and
it may bo announced uijon the
very highest authority that ho
cordially accepts the Pierce amendment as
[ juiious good iinu equauy as eitectivoos ins
'
own. 'Tho president and Ids secretary of
state nro therefore of ono mind upon this
subject and will use their united iniluenco to
secure the amendment of the tariff bill so
that the duty on sugar shall not
bo thrown away but utilized in
diplomatic negotiations so as to- secure
the free admission of our brcadstuffs , provis
ions and other peculiar products into the
sugar growing countries , which constitute
nine-tenths pf the urea and population south
of the Citilf of Mexico and the Klo Grande. It
is belloved that the president has de-
cidcit to address n message to con-
irress on this subject at an early day.
IIo goes to IJoston next weeic to
attend the national encampment of the Grand
Army of tbo Kepubllc and may not be able to
prepare it before that time , butvlll undoubt
edly endeavor to do so. The effect of such n
messngo upon congress will bo very great.
The Semite Is prepared to accept the Pierce
amendment , but Speaker Heed and the
house committee on ways and means would
bo likely to reject it under ordinary
circumstances , but they would not dare to dose
so if the president should tuko a linn position
in Its support and announce it to bo the policy
of his administration ,

The cause for the clopcimmt was the fear of

nee report on the original package bill ,
The report leaves the bill exactly us it
insscd the senate nnd is dissented from b.v
Ir. Oatc.s of Alabama , ono of the conferees. ]
After debate the conference report was
dopted j ea.s , 120 i nays , WJ.

vtiolo on tlio general dellcioncy bill , but witli-
ut disposing of the bill the committee resend

Hen nto.
\VAsitixnrov , August (1 ( , After routine
mslnessof little importance the senate pro-
ccded to connlder.ition of the tariff , the pend-
ng question being on Mr. Morgan's amend-
nent In regard to Iron ore.
.Mr. ( lorman.sald the metal schedule was
> urhips the uinhki&iportnntono In tlio bill ,
mil the paragraph under discussion practi
cally the hey to tlio wliolo schedule. Ho
spoke nt great length In favor of a reduction
u the duty on Hessomcr ore , having in the
ourse of his remarks collocnilca with Messrs.
Sherman , Uullom , Spooner , Blair , nud other
senators. Mr. Gorman snld with the re-
luction of duty on foreign He scmer ores
the result would bo thnt steel ships could bo
milt us cheaply in Daltlmnro ns on tbo Clyde.
With that advantage.ho said , the prediction
of the great republican secretary of state
would bo fulfilled ,
Mr. Fryo said the * secretary of
state had been quoted sovcnt tlmeH in thu
scnato as arguing that the MoKlnlcy bill did
lot In any of its features open up markets.
Now the secretary of stnto was dealing in
; lntt letter entirely with foreign and not
liomo markets. "I do not understand that in
i protective tariff there is an especial pnr-
> o < u to open up foreign markets. It is the
iiirposo of a protective tariff
: o create n homo inaikct , which
is worth infinitely inoro than
my foreign market , und that was undoubt
edly the understanding of the secretary of
state , nnd not a purpose to reflect at nil on
the McICinloy bill except so fur as that there
was nothing in it Intended to open up foreign
narkota , nnd ho deshed to have something
; nit in it in the way of reciprocity , by which
fort-ign markets might bo opcnt'd up. "
Mr. Gray spoke of the "reinnrlcuhlo glo.ss
put by Mr. l-'rve on Illaino's letter , " and ho
went on to rend extracts from the letter to
show that Mr. '
Fryo's Interpretation of it was
not a natural or correct ono ,
Mr. Fryo stated , ' in reply to Mr. Oray ,
that Blaine had criticised the bill in simply
one regard the provision making sugar freo.
[ 11 his Judgment lllaine had criticised it b > -
cause the five sugiir provision was not ac
companied with a provision thnt would open
up the markets of youth American countries
to the products of 'American ' farms. There
was no other criticism made by Bl.iino on
the McICinloy bill ] und bo himself sympa
thized strongly with that criticism.
Mr. Gibson denied the statement that
Ulnino's letter referred to sugar alone , nad
asserted that it' referred also to hides
and wool and oiiis. The secretary of state
stood committed , Mr. CJIbson said , to n
hrnid : nnHnv nf iv > p.it rnf-itv ivlth T1m Wiinth
American and Central American stntea.
Mr. Morgan withdrew his amendment in
order to allow Mr. Gorman to offer nn ninuid-
mcnt reducing the duty on Iron ore from 7fi
to f > D cents per ton/
Mr. Plumb inoyed to amend tbo amend
ment bv making thor.Uo I'D cents.
Mr. Gorman ar-copted the amendment.
The amendment was rejected yeas. 21 ;
nays , 29. . /
The paragraph was then agreed to ns re
ported by the finance coininittec.
Mr. Viineo moved to reduce the duty on pig
Iron , the next paragraph , Iromit-loot 1 cent
per pound to $ T > a ton ,
Without disposing of the amendment the
sciiato adjourned.

The Florence Saloon War.

of Tin : Hin : : Tlio saloonkeepers of Florence
liavo overloaded the market this year and
now , like tbo famous cats of the Green Isle ,
they am in u deadly light. Hut so long ns
they conflno their mud efforts to eating and
iiinsticatlng each other the nverago citizen
will bid thorn godspeed and devoutly pray for
a light to the liiilsb. But when your corre
spondents leads the general public to believe
Unit any reputable citizens are engaged in
this fraternal warfare thov do the community
an Injmtlco ,
You have at Omaha a convert of the late
lamented Francis Murphy who claims to
represent the "law and order citizens ot
Florenro. " Instead of this , as nearly us
diligent inquiry has developed , this li-llow
is employed by four men ono a Florence ox-
mayor , ono a Florence saloonkeeper and two
notorious ox-saloonkcepcrs of Blair. With
such a law and order combination Is it any
wonder that oven the hoodlum : * of Florence
should feel constrained at the council house
and literally plaster this law and order attor
ney with rotten eggs in order that thu atinos-
phero of tlio hall might hem least purified i
Your paper also does an injustice to Mr.
Eller of Blnir , who is now city attorney of

of .somo state statute , andi-ndur the impres
sion that aho was on trial fora violation of

Mr. ISllur , ono of the councilmen promptly
introduced a resolution to remove him , but
when the whole matter was explained in open

There it nt least one S.irpy. comity fanner
whoso ideas as lo the success of the imirrlngo
relation have imdorgono n decided change In
the past forly-t'lght hour * , and there Is u
f.iriiilionsa.alniost within thoshndow of IJelld-
yuo college whew doine-stlo happiness Is n
sad iiil.siiomormul iiiailtal felicity will heie- f
after bo a thing unknown.
The change * thnt have occurred wllhln the
past few days have been as sudden us they
were unexpected , and they are directly
traceable-to the erratic movements of a mys
terious woman In black , who for the present
shall remain nameless.
last .Monday afternoon this mysterious
porsoiinj-e , clml in black and heavily veiled ,
cnllca at the nfllcoot Slalwugh , IMIU , t Kush ,
In the Kow YoncLifo building , nnd mildly
stated that she wanted to mike a deposition.
Bho was Informed that It would not be possi
ble to tnl < o her deposit ion in a case unless by
order of the court and both sldui were
pro ont , but that she might miiko nllldavit to
anylhlngslio wished. After demurring fora
while she Jitnilly consented , nnd recited the
following story :
Although now living nt Minden , la. , she
wns formerly engaged in the family of a well
known S.irpy county resident iw a domestic.
Wlillo working there in that capacity she
miulo the acquaintance of the other resident
of S.irpy county nliovo referred to , who Is not
only ono of the oldest and most successful
farmers of that section , but Is Ilkowlso the
head of nn Interesting family. For the pres
ent It is suniclcnt to call htm'liiirds , although
thnt Is not his namo.
According to the story of this mysterious
"she , " "tbo woman In bhuk , " or "tho
veiled Iiuly , " Harris visited her frequently
Htlll ri < IIViMI tlli il flint lint .lull * it-iio li.t n ut.iivl.k
man but ho was likewise heart whole , and ho
proceeded to lay siege to tbo citidel of her af-
iections. llgw could it bo otherwise than
that ho was .successful ! Ills luck exceeded
thnlof the wonderful four-time winner , and
the besieged capitulated. Tho' terms wuro
unconditional surrender , and ns time pussed ,
on things went not as they used to be.
Tlio nillantdeolai-es
thnt thoirilntimaey un
duly ripened , and when she finally suggested
a sperdy marriage she found t hat Harris had
been a happy husband for lo , those many years.
This knowledge was of course depressing ,
still it caused no chiingo in the relations or
the pair , as she declared that she still loved
him. It so happened that at length a child
wus bom to her , and in duo coin-so of time/
nnothor , nnd then the woman went toMinden
Is'ow comes the part of the story that yet
remains to bo explained. From tiio time of
her departure to'.Mlndca
) until her appear
mice last Monday In imOinilm law ollice , a
great change had iipp.irenlly taken pluco ,
which she did not seem to
deem It worth whllo to explain.
Khe said that sin- wanted to maUo affidavit to
all of those things and to the fuct Unit Harris
had also paid more attention to a married
woman of hi-s acquaintance thin a neighborly
friond.slimvnnld 1n. ttfV. ( Klitvmt.ml ufl
tin-so statements In iiiuuic anil wliitu , and then
she very positively swore to them.
Hhibnugh , Lnno & Uusli concluded that
they did not want to handle thoense , and the
woman was sentaeroas the corridor lo the of-
lice of E. T. Cook , where Iho nllldavlt was at
lust .secured. Then the mysterious black
dross and veil with their still more mysteri
ous wearer quietly departed and have ap
peared no more in that rolo.
Tbo following day Mis. Harris appeared at
the oftlco of MV- Cook , und with her was n
woman who bore a striking rosomblaiiiw in
form and carriage to the heavily yelled visi
tor of the day before. They produced the
anldavit and wanted to got n divorce. Mrs.
Harris win righteously indignant but her
companion w.is inulinvd to silence. They at
leugtu dopnrlcd. and the next hi-ard of the
case was yesterday. That was Mr , Harris'
day , nnd ho impaired on the sccno of action.
IK-said that his wife hud loft him and also
proposed to sue fora divorce. Ho declared
tlwt bo knew nothing of the woman In black ,
but ho was sure that It was a deal of some
kind to break up his family.
Ho stoutly denied having had nny Improper
relations with anybody as charged , and Mr.
Cook believed him. ' Cook had known him
for thirty-live years , and what could ho do
but licllovoliim when ho so positively as
serted Ids innocence I That only added to
the mystery of the case , and there was no ex
planation to bo given.
This is the condition of the c.iso nt present ,
ami now developments nro being awaited ,
The theory of the few who have heard of tin1
case is that It Is a cut nnd dried scliemoif \
twcen the tolled woman uud Harris to in
duce his wife to get a divorce , but his friends
will not entertain the Idea , and It remains to
ho explained why the woman has nudu ,1
sworn statement of her past relations with
him.
