WASHINGTON , D. C. , Jan. 29. Tao demo crats of the house of representatives have found it necessary to nppanl to n caucus de cree in order to nocurc unity ot notion in the adoption of rules for the government ot the proceedings ot the houso. It is n matter of r omo significance that the subject ot dissen sion in the democratic ranks is thnt clause of the proposed cede which enables the commit tee on rules nt nny titno to call up for con- Mdcrntlon a report of that committee , and preventing dilatory motions bolng made pending such consideration. To give the speaker power to recognize nnd to prevent dilatory motions at such particular time , and not clotbo him with like power nt nil other times acorns to many democratic members n great discrimination in favor of the committee ot which thu iponker Is ox-ofilclo chairman nnd whoso de liberations ho naturally directs , nnd th < > pro posed rule was roost bitterly attacked by various members of the dominant party. So * llttlo , however , was attention * paid to I. * party lines during the debate that ouo of the " strongest supporters of the rule was Hon. James Buchanan , tbo well known republican representative from Now Jersey. Connlderntlon of the Itiilcn , The house this morning proceeded to the further consideration of the report of iho committee on rules pending an amendment withdrawing from the jurisdiction of the ap propriations committee appropriations for the support of the District of Columbia. After considerable debate the amendment was rejected nnd nn amendment was also re jected to take from the committee on rivers nnd harbors jurisdiction over tbo appropria tions for iho improvement ot tbo Mississippi river. In speaking to an informal amendment Mr. Morse of Massachusetts turned his attention to Massachusetts politics. That state was represented In the house today by five re publicans and seven democrats. The demo cratic members were ail gentlemen of high character nnd ability. Massachusetts sent no other mon hero. [ Laughter.J Ho had not a word to nay against uny of tboso gen tleman , but truth compelled him to say that Massachusetts was at present ralsrnpro- sentod on this floor. Governor Russell bad f \f \ bo6n" rVeloctod for three reasons first , his [ , ij personal popularity ; second , the prohibition Lr5-voto ; third , because ho denied on the stump every democratic doctrine. Mr. liutlor of lonn ( Jets I'uimy. Mr. Butler ot Iowa said that them was a circus In town. The grand royal combina tion , the great and only monopolistic aggre gation , the allied union of protective oper allves baa sounded its fish horn , declaring its grand opening with moro Pharisees to the dorpn thun over sent forth their praises in the streets of tbo old Jerusalem [ laughter ] und such mon to speak about the duties of true statesmanship I The republicans claim tbat they nlono were patriots , when tholr every act of legislation relative to foreign countries bad been on insult to the American Hag. They had compared our country with tthcr nations , nnd , for shame , had declared our inability to compete with them in ordi nary affairs of life. Mr. Do Forest of Connecticut inveighed ncaftist the rules of the last congress nnd the decisions made under them and approved the proposed codo. Branching off to a short discussion of the sliver question bo declared that if a fruo coinage bill was passed by this congress it would not go out with the stamp of endorsement of the democratic party upon it. Seemed to lie n MlmimlcrHtnmllng. Mr. Dlngloy of Maine said that the gentle man from Illinois , Mr. Springer , In a speech delivered In New York had declared that this bouso would not pass a free silver bill. He also understood that the gentleman from I'cxas. Mr. Lanham , had withdrawn his amendment giving the committee on coinage , weights and measures leave to report at any time , on the assurance of the gentleman of Missouri , Bland , that it was unnecessary. There seamed to bo some misunderstanding somewhere and bo wished to call the atten tion of the gentleman from Illinois to tbo matter. Mr. Springer 1 did not make the state ment thnt this house would not pass a free coin ago bill. Mr. Dlngloy I understood tbo gentleman to bo so reported. Will the gentleman please state what ho did sayl Mr. Springer I said that a free coinage bill would not become a law because your president would vote It. Hooker of Mississippi moved to strike from tbo rules the provision making It always in order to call up for consideration a report from the committee on rules and prevent dilatory motions being made pending such consideration. , Springer of Illinois earnestly opposed the motion and gave bis hearty approval to the i > ulo reported by the committee on rulos. Ills Maiden Talk. FV Mr. Bailey of Texas , the youngest member ' f iho house and who oamo to Washington i 'with < quilo n reputation for oratory , then took the floor and ho fully justified that reputation , His remarks were directed to nn advocacy of Mr. Hooker's motion. Ho opposed the rule as reported , because it wns nn essential departure from the ttadltlons Of the domocratlo party n departure which ho was unwilling to sco bocouio n law of tbo house except over his respectful protest. Chlpman of Michigan opposed the rule , which ho contended was following a bad precedent. Ealoo of Tennessee preferred the business of the house should bo resulatod by a com mittee on order of business , but if that could not bo done ho was in favor of tbo proposed rulo. rulo.Buchanan Buchanan of Now Jersey advocated the rule as an enlargement of tbo liberty of rep resentatives and not a contraction thereof. thu rillliiutrr , Brocklnridpe of Kentucky thought that all talk about the filibuster amounted to nothing but a scarecrow. As a rule , the filibuster was a first rate follow. Fifteen yoara ago he bad prevented tbo force bill from being put upon the south , ( This allusion to Mr. Randall - dall was rfreoted with applause. ! The fill- buitor bad defeated the education bill , It wns uot true that the filibuster was entirely to bo cut. It was well sometimes to bo on good terms with him. Mr , Oatos offered an amendment providing for the appointment of a committee on order of business to consist of flftoon members ( ton democrats nnd five opposition ) which guould bavo leave to report at any tl mo , and of which the speaker should boox-ofllcio chairman. After further debate , but without action , tbo bouse adjourned until tomorrow. During tbo debate on the contested rule several of the democratic leaders had held an Informal conference aud discussed the wis dom of calling a party caucus to secure unity of action among the democratlo mombors. It was finally decided that such a course was imperative , and Immediately after adjourn * mout tbo caucus was announced for tomor row evening at 7:30. : The Death Hull. Nsw VOIIK , Jan. 29.

Mrs. Edwin Dodd of this city bos just returned from San tiago , Uhlll , where she has been the last year , during which time she mot with some thrilling experiences. She was there during the Balmnccda troubles and bus much to say in roforcnco to them. Sbo wns in Santiago teaching in a loading college at the time of the disturbances and sav many dangerous nnd peculiar situations. "The attitude of the country toward the United States is ono of extreme hatred , " said sho. "Tro people are far behind the times. I found Santiago society in an ox- tremol.v demoralised state , Tbo city con tnlns about 200,000 Inhabitants and is ono of the wickedest places on the globe. Statis tics show It has moro gambling dons than nny city la the world. BalmaceJa was a man of progressive ideas and instituted many reforms , which caused the opposition to inaugurate the rebellion which resulted in his overthrow. After the trouble no one wns allowed on tbe streets after dark with out n pass. The bells were ordered silent in case of lire , as their ringing might excite Iho people , consequently there wore many de vastating conflagrations. No ono was allowed to wear anything of a rod color , as that was tbo color ot the rebels. "Ono evening wo were walking on the streets , when suddenly around the corner appeared a troop of soldlors , followed by n mob of greasy , dirty natives , looking moro llko savages than civilized beings. In a moment's time , it seems , the streets were filled with people and the air rang with shouts of 'Vive 1'opposition. ' Guns were fired and rod bunting appeared everywhere. Women rushed to the stores nnd bought everything In the dry goods line that Dad red In it. They distributed it among the mob. The women all through the trouble were nearly all on the sldo of the opposition and worked many secret schemes to aid tbo cause , oven to concealing small printing presses In their homes , upon which were printed llttlo incendiary speeches , copies of which the woman carried about and dis tnbutod from house to bouse under their cloaks. In many cases families were divided , the greater majority of the moro Intelligent being for Balmadooo. . "After the Itnta affair the Chilians be came greatly incensed at our country and tholr hatred has been growing moro and moro bitter all the timo. These who kept United States goods were compelled to secrete them or sell them as being imported from other countries. The warlike feeling throughout all Chill is strong and tbe rank and file believe they can easily whip the United States. Martinez , the member of the Chamber of Deputies who voted ngatnst apologizing to the United States , is a fire eater of the worst description. Fcnra Another Outrage. WASHINGTON , D. C. , Jan. 29. Lieutenant McCrenono of the officers of the cruiser Bal timore who acted as interpreter at the secret examination ot the Baltimore's sailors by tbo Valparaiso criminal court , said today tbat the passions of the Chilian populace could not bo curbed nud that they were certain to break out before long in some uow Indignity ncnmst American sailors or Americnn'intor- osts.

Scntonco of Dcnth 1'uonecl Upim Two Cold- Vloodud Murderers. VIENNA J n. 29. The sensational Schnei der murder trial ended today. The jury found Schneider and his wife guilty and both prisoners were sentenced _ to death. For cold blooded cruelty this case stands almost without a parallel In the annals of crime in this city. The evidence against the accused was overwhelming , but Frau Schneider until yesterday * stoutly main tained tbnt her husband was alone responsi ble for the death of the girls. Schneider described in detail bis method of doing away with the girls. Ho would ao to the room occupied by tbe girl last employed by bla wife , and despite bor pravors and eu- treatlos would criminally assault her. It was thought by tba police that ho first chloroformed bis victims , but In bis confes sion Schneider said they were always con scious when ho attacked them. Horrible as It may appear , his wife ac companied him and aided him In tbo ac complishment of this fiendish crime , and afterwards she would grasp the hands of tbo victim while Schneider clutched tbo poor girl by the throat und choked her to death , Tbo same course was pursued In the case of all the eight victims. After the girls were dead Schneider and bis wlfo would convoy the bodies to a wood clobO to their homo , whore they would strip their victims of their clothing which , together with tbo contents of tbo girls' luggage , they would afterwards sell , The Schneider trial , however , has been marked by the presence of a very large num ber ot stylishly dressed Indies , who leveled tholr lorgnettes and closely scanned the features of tbo prisoners , Some oftho ; ovl- donco was of a nature to bring a blush to most any cheek , but those ladles , though some of thorn did blush at certain parts of tbo testimony , were so eager to hear every word of the outrages , murders and robberies that they conquered their natural Inclination to leave tbo court room , and galnintr courage from tbo many women present they remained and had tboir curiosity gratified. The public prosecutor in his speech against the prisoners gave a most , vivid description of the fiendish character of the crimes and bo dwelt at length upon the cruelty , heart- lessuess and lack ot all womanly fooling manifested bv Frau Schneider in enticing tbo girls to her home , wbero sbo know death would bo tholr fate. He dwelt , too. upon the perverted nature of the woman which had led bor to become an accomplice of her hus band In the gratification of Ills animal pas sions nnd induce her to take advantage of her sex to procure victlus for bis lust. There wns a great sensation in iho court room when at tbo conclusion of his speech the publlo prosecutor straightened himself , and pointing with outstretched arm at Schneider , exclaimed ( n a loud tone , "Ho is a doomed man.1' ' Throughout tbo teniblo nrrilgumeut of tbo prisoners by tbo publlo prosecutor Schnoldor sat with bis bead clasped in bis hands and .showed no emotion whatever. His wife , though she lUJonod closely to the scathing words applied to her , remained perfectly cool and unmoved. When the death soutenco was passed upon them they showed no fear , but lUtonod to the fatufu ) words with uu air amounting almost to IndltToronco , - * - radii Collision on the Central.

WASHINGTON Duunvu OP TUB BSB , ) B18 FOUIITP.ENTH STUBBT , f WsiiiNOTON , D. ( X. Jan. 29. J The disputed boundary casa between Iowa nnd Nebraska came up in the supreme court this afternoon. Nebraska was represented by J. M. Woolworth nnd O. J. Groon. and lown by Hon. Smith MoPhorsonof Rod Oak. The Issue Involved Is the land lying between the channel ot the river ns it was In 1810 nnd the present channel , Including Saratoga aud Busha's bond. Slnco 1S40 the river channel bos changed n score of times. In 1851 , when it wns first surveyed and meandered , the Iowa sboro passed through government lot 1. in section 20 , on the northwest , nnd then swept to a point far east of the eastern termini of both bridges now standing. In 1850 it had oaten northward from the Nebraska - braska sldo nnd southward on the Iowa side. The survey ot 1877 showed the Iowa bank line crossing the southeast X of soctlon 31 , and sweeping northward in a horseshoe curve around and through soctlon 2. Nebraska claims the line of 1877 , which sun Insists was duo to gradual accretions to the shore lino. Iowa claims the old ilnoof 1S40 , far to the oast. Neither sldo holds claim to the present channel. The Nebraska claim , if allowed , will give about half of East Omaha to Nebraska. The Iowa claim , if admitted , will put practically the whole of that suburb la Iowa. Mr. Green made an able argument on the theory that the Btato was entitled to tha slow acccrotlons to Its batiks. Mr. Woolworth - worth lollowoa with nu explanation of the perplexing maps which accompanied the briefs and which were gridlronod with Hues showing the changes In the rlvor. There are few precedents bonrintr on tbo case and tha decision will bo largely based on conflicting testimony submitted with the briefs. Handled Without Glovci. Secretary Rusk has addressed a long letter to Senator Paddook reviewing the contro versy with Dr. Billings of the Nebraska oxperlmont station in regard to the cultiva tion of swino. Secretary Rusk handles Dr. Billings in this matter with ungloved hands , and says that his actions have been a dis grace to the state ; that the attacks of Dr. Billings bavo been so frequent , so virulent and so ungentlotnanly in tbolr language that it is considered a dlseraco , not only1 to Nebraska , but to the experiment stations as a wholo. The secretary regards the contro versy ns "n gross impropriety , since Dr. Bll- Imgs bos abused the secretary of agriculture and the chief of the ouroau of animal In dustry. " Ho states that be Is not making investi gations of experiment stations , as their work is essentially distinct from the scientific work of tbo Agricultural department , nnd that , it would bo an improorloty to Day'tno expenses of an investigation out of an ap propriation made by congress for tbo ad vancement of agricultural science. - ' Thinks Ho Was Kipose'il. ' The secretary declares that Dr. Billings , having been exposed and driven to the wuU , "finds it convenient to pass us a lone-suffer ing individual who has boon quietly laboring in the cause of science. " and that "in' this way and by reason of tno theory that Ne braska's interests have been neglected , .bo hopes to receive sympathy and support , " and after clamoring so long for an opourtunity to domonutrato the success of his Inoculation as a preventive to hog cholera , It was cer tainly ridiculous to find him evading the op portunity which Dr. Salmon gave him to make a test at Ottawa , III. ; that Dr. Billings wanted nu Investigation , but'not by sci entists ; that , instead of accepting that op portunity , ho did all bo could to delay tbo tests which were finally made , and It proves beyond a Question of doubt that Dr. Salmon was right in stating that inoculation was dangerous and may spread tbo disease. In this case fiO per cent of the hogs inoculated bv tbo Billings method have dlod from tbo effects and tbo disease has since spread to the hogs inoculated and also to those not in oculated. > "In the faoo of the fact of his unfailing recommendation of this method , " says bee- rotary Rusk , "and his statement ' that any farmer could safely use It , what 'more can bo said to show that ho cannot bo relied upon and that bis teachings are deceptive and dangerous ! The investigations having turned out as disastrously as his pretensions by the investigations of scientists made some years ago , bo now turns to the people of Ne braska and frankly calls upon them to stir themselves up and llttlo they know that they nro Nebraska's enemy and not the subjects of Jerry Rusk or bis department. If tbo state of NebrasKa chooses to keep such a man ot this kind In such a conspicuous position , paying him $ ) , GOO a year and allow film to expend the station's fund , 1 suppose she has tbo power to do so , out bor people cannot fall to sco that this Is a discredit and disgrace which ho brings upon bor fair uume. " Miscellaneous. President H. Wbarton Amordlng of the American Society for the Preventing of Adulteration ofFood , writes Senator Pad dock today from the society's headquarters in Philadelphia : "Wo were pleased recently that Hon. Charles F. Crisp , who has had in charge the purn food bill in tbo house , de clared it to bo essential at this session to pass the bill.

Tbo decree of King Caucus is to bo invoked to settle the silver question In the democratic party. This was decided upon today. The opponents of free coinage bavo taken' the initiative m de manding a party caucus. Representative Hnrtcr of Ohio has circulated n petition among the democratic members of the house for n caucus to bo hold Frjday. Hartor had no difficulty m getting many more than the requisite number of signatures to the call , and on the presentation ol the paper Mr. Holman stated that ho wov d at ouco issue tbo call. The democratic caucus is on legislative matters have never been regarded as abso lutely binding on members /of the house aud a talk with a number of-democrats made it ovidout that the caucus' determination on the silver question would have loss of a bind- ng force than n caucus on alma at any other question. Tno call was circulated by nntl- silver mon. It Is a restricted , and not n binding caucus call , A number of free coin age democrats who were soon said they did not bollovo the antts would abide by a de cision tnvorablo to free silver. A great mnny mon both for and agalns silver would refuse to go into a CAUCUS unless assured that it would not be regarded- binding. Air. Bacon of Now York and others refused to sign the call. Mr. Bland when told that d'caucus call was in circulation and asked U ho would go into it and abide by its decision said ! "I don't want to be Interviewed on tbat now , 1 want to wait and see what is aono. " Mr. Williams of Massachusettsnu nntl- frco colnaeo democrat on the committee , admitted that ho know'of tne call , but ho bad not signed it. Ho could not bo Induced to make answer as to whether or not ho would go Into such a caucus. Will Vote for Tree Silver. Mr. Robertson , the Loulsnn * member ot the coinaeo committee , said : "I am going to vet for a free coinage bill in committee nnd In the houso. I have no objection to its discussion 111 caucus ; but on the silver ques tion I propose to vote according to the wisbos of my constituents whd elected mo on a frco silver plank.

Whatever ray/pixrty says "In its party platform I shall standby. The eastern democrats would not agree to bo bound by caucus action on the silver question , as was evidenced by tbe action's of Messrs. Hoar and Williams of Massachusetts , who refused to vote for Speaker Crisp , a free coinage man. because he would no ; pledge himself in writing to throttle silver legislation on this iloor. Then how can they expect free silver mon to bo so bound ! " AFTER THE Wnr Against the Dotoctlve * In nunitocl ( In CiuiRrcHs bjr thoAllluiico , WASHINGTON , D.

Some days ago Representative Watioi ) , farmers alliance member from Georgia , prasoritod a resolution instructing the committee op judiciary to in vestigate quickly and as Julfy as ponlblo tbe Plnkerton agonoy nod report to the house its methods. "It Is oar intention. " said Mr. Watson to an Associated Press reporter today , "to push ' this thing to the blttor e..d < This resolution is a party measure with tbo farmers alliance representatives. Wo think1 that for corpora tions to arm and equip a standing army to settle their difficulty with their laborers by war Is reducing tbo government to anarchy , The laborers have no right to maintain a stunning army tp light the cor porations and the corporations have no right to maintain a standing army to fight tbo laborers. If the government is not strong enough to deal with these people nnd settle tholr disputes from a government stand point , then there is an end of tha rule of law and the beginning of rule of that party which can equip the heaviest Datalljons. The Plnkorton. detective agencies , viewed in the light of their actual prAcUces are but a standing militia , subject to tbo heck and call of th6 capitalists. They carry out the orders of the capitalists , no matter to what bloodshed those orderfTra" f lead , and they do it totally irrespective of Ithefrights of the other party.

The demo cratic members of the ways and means com mittee of the bouso this morning unani mously adopted the Springer policy and decided to attack tbo McKlnley tariff by various separata bills. Nothing was said about which particular feature of the present law should bo first at tacked and this will "bo left to future deter mination. Mr. McMillin declined to atato what ho or any other gentleman had said in committee , but did not hesitate to give it as his judgment that a general bill was preferable to individ ual or separate bills. Ho believed tbat the demooratio position on the tariff was now stronger than ovor. Ho did not think a loss vigorous policy should bo adopted ngnlnst the present McIClnloy law than was adopted against the former tariff law , whoso average rain of duty was 45 per cent. If that rate re quired a general revision , as. was claimed by all democrats , tbo requirements of good leg islation were not loss against the present law , which imposed an average duty of 00 per cent and , in addition , surrendered the right of imposing taxation to the president.

It looks ns though every possible effort wns bolng made to pro- vonttlio news of the Garza movement from being made public. The newspaper press la so silent on the subject thnt It seems to bo afrnld to publish news from the frontier. Whenever the opposition papers venture to malto mention of Garza aim his operations , the subsidized papers immediately begin to threaten the opposition editors with arrest or Imprisonment. "Private ndvlcos which roach bora from the northern frontier would 3 com to liullcato that theoondltion nf affairs there merits moro attention than the authorities are willing to aamlt. Mexican revolutions in times past have had oven smaller boglnnlngs."fcTbo ar gument that thh country hus made so grout progress in the lost decade that revolutions nro muoh more dllllcult than formerly has much fnrco. There Is force also in the fact that the military mon are not only dluldont , bilt at the snmo time the element of discon tent Is unimportant and thooaso of communi cation makes It possible for the opponents of the government In the various states to act In haraiony much more readily than In former times. "All the Information that reaches hero In dicates that the people of the northern fron tier are not hostile to President Diaz , but to the oRlcials whom bo has njipolntod. It Is al leged that these ofllcials do not keep the cen tral government correctly Informed of the true stuto of affairs in the north. At the snmo time there Is little If any doubt that the men associated with Garza are entitled to scant respect. They are characterized ns a 'bad crowd. ' No ono expects them to tri umph , but it Is feared that they may cause much trouble and that their example may stimulate similar elements in other parts of the country to nrmod disorder. If this should provo to bo the case , the progress ot the country will ho retarded. " UH lilt , Andrew ItorJoHHon Suitors the Dcnth Penalty lit Mtehlleld , Conn. LiTCiiPiEM ) , Conn. , Jan. 29.
