REPEAL BILL RESTS
For Thi3 Session, at Least, It
Meets Its Doom.
DEBATE CLOSED WITH SUEE DEFEAT
In the Senate the Tobacco Schedule la
Quickly Handled, and the Agricul
tural Features of the Tariff
Bill Brought Forward.
Washington. June 7.—The bill to re
peal the bank tax act was taken up at
l-.uo, Air. .Turner, of Georgia, having
fifteen minutes in which to speak in
favor of the repeal and there being an
hour and a quarter for argument
against repeal, the time to be controll
ed by r Mr. Dingley.
In the Senate.
At 10:30 the tariff bill was taken up,
the question being on the tobacco
schedule (F,) paragraph 184, as it came
irom the house and as reported by the
finance committee imposed a duty of $1
a pound on ail leaf tobacco suitable
for cigar wrappers, if unstemmed, and
$1.25 if stemmed.
Mr. Jones’ amendment was to strike
out the paragraph and substitute the
following: “Wrappertobacco unstem
med, imported in any bales, package or
in bulk, $1.50 per pound; if stemmed,
12.25 per pound.”
Mr. Jones, on behalf of the finance com
mittee, modified the amendment by
making the rate* $1 on unst>mmed
wrapper tobacco and 5i.25 on stemmed.
After discussion and at the sugges
tion of Mr. Vest that the amendment
remain as originally proposed, $1.50 and
and $2.35 a pound, to save time and
let the matter be considered afterwards
in the senate, the Jones amendment as
originally proposed was agreed to.
To the next paragraph ()85) the fol
lowing substitute was offered by the
finance committee and agreed to :
“Filler tobacco, unstemmed, impor
ted in any bale, box, package or in bulk,
85 cents per pound : is stemmed, 50 cents
per pound,” with various provisions.
The next paragraph (380) remains as
in the house bill, 40 cents on tobacco
not specially providedfor.
The next paragraph (187) was amend
ed so as to make the duty on snuff 50
cents instead of 40.
The next paragraph (188) was amend
ed to read “cigars, cigarettes and che
roots of all kinds, $4 per pound and 25
per cent, ad valorem, and paper cigars
and cigarettes, including wrappers,
shall be subject to same duties as here
in imposed upon cigars.”
'This finished the tobacco schedule,
and the next schedule (G) “agricultur
al products and provisions,” was taken
The first paragraph was 133, “20 per
cent, advalorem on live animals uot
specially provided for.” Mr. Hale moved
to strike the paragraph and insert par
agraph 247 of the existing law’, making
the dutv on horses and mules S3O per
head horses valued at $l5O and over to
pay a duty of 30 per cent, valorem.
Then followed the long debate of the
day ; a very little of it devoted to tar
iff subjects and a great deal of it to a
wide range of subjects. Mr. Hale
Aldrich. Vest, Dolph, Gallinger. Peffer
and Cullom had more to say about the
Oregon and Illinois elections than about
the tariff bill. Stewart broke in with
one of his usual speeches on silver. Mr.
Hoar quoted with commendations a
statement of Lord Salisbury in favor of
protection ; and Mr. Cray met it with
an equally strong declaration of Glad
stone on the opposite side of the ques
tion. That set Mr. Hoar off with a
reference to Bismarck as greater than
either Salisbury or Gladstone. Mr.
Teller came into the Gladstone discuss
ion and said his admiration of Mr. Glad
stone was confined to two points—his
great intellect and his great admiration
for England ; but that there was not a
charter in Gladstone’s history which
indicated that his sympathy had ever
gone beyound great Britian. The dis
cus-ion assumed an accademic turn.
The vote was taken and Mr. Hales
amendment was rejected, —yeas 21-;
On this vote, Mr. Peffer voted aye:
and Kyle populist of South Di. rota and
Hill of New York voted nay. Mr. Allen
did not vote.
Mr. Hale then moved to make the
iutv S2O, per head; and that amend
ment was laid on the table, without a
Iu the House.
The eubject was further discussed by
Mr. Bingraan republican of Pennsyl
vania, Mr. Hall democrat of Missouri,
Mr. Roberson, republican of Pennsyl
vania, and Mr. Cockran, democrat of
New York. The debate closed at 2:30
o'clock, and a vote was taken on the
Cox amendment to repeal the ten per
cent, tax outright.
The vote was announced as. yeas 102
nays 170. The announcement was re
ceived with slight applause.
Th substitute of the committee on
banking and currency for the original
Brawley bill, suspending the operation
of the 10 per cent tax as to the issues
of certificates, etc. by clearing houses
and other org-a izations last year,
merolv changing the verbiage so as to
! make it more explicit, was defeated on
' a viva vote. Then the original
bill was lost * This was the end of the
ten days debate anti a result that oc
casioned some surprise, and the an
nouncement ua > r. ceived amid much
confusion aud applanse.
Mr. Holman moved that the house in
! comm ittee of the whole take up the
Indian appropriation bill for the year
ending June 30. 1895. Agreed to, and
\1 r O’ Neill, democrat of Massachusetts,
ZZi the chair. Mr. Holman asked
that the first reading of the bill be
aspensed with. Mr. Ray, republican
f New York offer objected. The clerk
oegan the task of wading through the
13S printed pages of the document, but
had proceeded only a little way when
in arrangement was affected by which
lr Ray with irew his demand for tbe
reading of the bill and Mr. Holman
premised that t c house should adjourn.
Adjourned at 3;-<i o'clock.

New York, June 7.- Albert S. Cald
well. a well known member of the Pro
duce and Consolidated Exchanges, died
suddenly last night at his resilience,
885 St. Nichols avenue. .Mr. Caldwell
had been connected with various bank
ing interests in this city for the past
thirty years. Several years ago he
married the widowed daughter of Elias
Howe, the sewing machine magnate.
Mr. Caldwell, was a director of the
Consolidated Exchange. lie was 50
years old. Death was caused, bv apo
t orty-nine men working on ex-Com
modore El bridge T. Gerry’s new pal
ace, at Fifth avenue and Sixty-first
street, struck this morning. The rea
son for the strike is the importation
from Paris of the marble for the man
tle pieces. Under a rule of the trade
unions of New York, enacted June Ist.
last, no member of the organizations is
allowed to work on any building in the
construction of which foreign labor is
employed. Yesterday's strike is the
first one under the new rule.
The Rev. I)r. Parkhurst yesterday
issued an address to the patrolmen of
the police force of New York City. He
insists that the charges made by his
society have been proved by the testi
mony taken before the Lexow commit
tee. He then urges the men to aid the
investigation by coming forward and
testifying to all the facts in their pos
session. To induce them to do so he
declares that the society and the com
mittee have the power, and have made
due preparations to fully protect every
person who gives evidence.

which the Coffins were prominent
members, called on them at the jail and
offered to accompany them to Michigan
City, which offer was ac
cepted. The preacher came
out of the cell with tears in his eyes.
“It*s too bad,” he said, “but they bear

OLE OVER TEE DEAD AND .WOODED,
The Peoria District in a Seige of Excite
ment. Intensified |>y the Determina
tion of the Lair to Stop the
Peoria, 111.. June 7.—One dead body,
several men on the verge of the grave,
a number of others seriously injured,
$30,000 worth of property absolutely
destroyed and many homes made deso
late was the result of an att *mpt made
by the miners of the Peoria district to
close the mine operated by Little Bros.,
in Tazewell county, a mile or more
back of Wesley City.
The dead: Edward Blower, of Bar
tonville, married; shot in side of neck
and killed instantly.
Injured: James Little, shot twice in
the body; thought to be fatally injured.
Peter Little, secretary shot in the left
eye and in right arm; seriously injured.
Peter Little, Jr., shot in the left side.
W'm. Dixon, colored, shot in the right
arm and through the left shoulder;
Several miners were shot, but they
were taken away and no one could se
cure any information from them about
anything. The tragedy was the sequel
of the meeting held at Bartonville the
other day, about which there was so
much secrecy. No one got the faintest
inkling of what was done at the meet
ing. Now everybody knows. It was
decided at that time that the Little
Bros., mine must close. Then there
could be no equivocation, no quibbling,
no half way measure. It must close
and remain closed.
In consequence of the conclusion ar
rived at that meeting about 400 miners
started out of Bartonville at 1 o'clock
yesterday afternoon. They came from
nearly all the mines in the district.
Without anything having been previ
ously said on the subject, except in the
utmost secrecy, every man apparently
came armed. They were desperate
and were ready to use desperate means
to accomplish desperate ends.
Sheriff Frederick, of Pekin, Taswell
county having - been advised of the
trouble went to the mines with a posse.
The strikers crossed the Illinois on
boats and were met on the side by the
sheriff who commanded peace and rea
soned with them in vain. Led by a
stalwart miner with a revolver in each
hand, crying: “Follow me” they made
a charge on the mine. The two Littles
and their two sons and a t'oin.V j man
retreated into the tower over the shaft
and opened fire on the besiegers some
of whom fell. The fire was returned
and the men in the tower hoisted a
white flag for surrender. The firing
was hotly continued and the tower rid
dled. The shaft was set on fire and the
air shaft closed. The crowds fled in
dismay as it was feared the powder
house would be ignited.
Later accounts show that of the par
ty besieged, John Jackson, a negro was
killed. Ed. Little was shot in the
breast and may die. There were eight
or ten miners in the shaft and it is
feared all were suffocated.
Among these are Gus and Fred Moritz
and John Roekey, Ed. blour, one of the
attacking party was killed and a half a
dozen other strikers were wounded. It
is believed two more of the strikers
will die. The sheriff and posse have
returned to Pekin. They were unable
to handle the mob. The wildest ex

commencement exercises at the Greens

opened yesterday by the baccalaureate
sermon by Bishop Fitzgerald, of Atlan

“Her price is far above rubies.” The
bishop devoted a great deal of his time
to a protest against woman’s suffrage,
yet he spoke in the most respectful and
loving manner of the women of the
Bible. He said that no advance in civ
ilization can ever excuse female suf
frage. The sermon was full of good
advice and not calculated to huit the
feelings of any one.

ex-son-in-law. to the stand in the po
lice investigation. Mr. Granger’s tes
timony was very important. He told
how he had been shadowed by detec
tives and had been threatened with
State prison. The second sensation oc
curred at Police Headquarters, when
Commissioner Murray, at the board
meeting in the afternoon, introduced a
resolution ordering Superintendent
Byrnes to prefer charges against the
officer testified about by the several
witnesses who have appeared before
the Lexow Committee. Mr. Murry
says the Police Board has no right to

also in the role of prosecutor. He
claims that Superintendent Byrnes is

force, and should make the charges.

The Great Stanford Estate May

WIDOW’S HOPES SOW WRECKED.
The Kstate of the Many Times Millionaire
Reduced to a Nominal Sum and That
Now Stands at the Mercy
of the Court.
San Francisco, Cal., June 7.—The
claim for $15,000,000 filed against the
Standford estate bj’ Attorney General
Olney as a preliminary step to enforce
the governments claim against the orig
inal holders of the t entral Pacific grant,
has awakened much interest here. It
is now learned that the governments
claim was presented on May 26, but
that an attempt was made to ke. p the
proceeding secret in order that the fi
nancial operations of the estate need
not be embarrassed.
The late Senator Stanfords estate
was recently appraised at $17,600,000.
Since the appraisment heavy obliga
tions have been met, and it is stated
now that the enforcement of the gov
ernment claim would practically wipe
out the estate, not only leaving the
widow penniless, but cutting off all the
beneficiaries under the late senators
will, including the endowment of $2,-
500,000 to the Stanford university. It
is even said that the estate, after the
liquidation of its acknowledged debts,
may not equal the amount of the claim
of the governm.-nt. In this event Sen
ator Stanford’s deeds of trust
under which Stanford university
was founded would not stand in case
the decision of the courts should be in
favor of the government and the Uni
versity would necessarily he sacrificed
to satisfy the judgment.
Mrs. Stanford in an interview has
stated that the government claim will
be resisted to the fullest extent of her
Today is the last day under the law
which Mrs. Stanford has to accept or
reject the governments claim. It is
believed that she will simply ignore
the claim, which in law amounts to re
jection. It Will then be in order for
the government to institute suit, either
in the United States courts or the Su
preme court iu San. Francisco. Attor
ney General Olneys claim was filed in
the probate court in San Francisco, be
fore Judge Coffee, where the Stanford
e tate is now undergoing settlement.
