Sr. Pact.. Minn., July 19. —The action
of the government in ma.ssing troops at
Butte and Helena would indicate that
the crisis is vet to come in Montana. At
Butte everything is tied up. At the
Northern Pacific general office building
it is learned that a special train left
last night for Forst As&iniboine via the
Great Northern, bearing troops to
Helena and Hutte, where trouble is an
ticipated. The available force at Forst
Assinaboine consists of two troops of
cavalry, one company of Indians and
four companies of infantry, numbering
in all about 500 men. The bulk of
these were dispatched under hurrying
orders and will probably reach Butte
during the day. In addition it is un
derstood that several additional compa
nies will be sent from Omaha. The
trouble lies with the miners; who, it is
said, have been quietly making prepa
ration to join forces with the American
railway union out there and repeat
the scenes in Chicago. Unless precau
tions arc taken much of the property
owned by the Northern Pacific will be

Galveston, Texas. When arrested the
men had stones in their pockets. Mayor
Oakley bound them over under heavy
bonds, to await the action of the crim
inal court. Members of the gang
stoned Nickel Plate, Wabash and Penn
sylvania passenger trains Saturday,
Sunday and Monday night. The Gen

ORDINARIES IN CONVENTION.
•scond Anneal Meeting of th* Georgia
-Judges’* on In Atlanta.
Atlanta, July 19. —One of the nota
ble conventions of the year is in session
It is composed of 135 substantial look
ing men who are known at home as
‘‘judge” and accorded the dignified treat
ment that goes with the title.
l hese gentlemen compose the second
annual convention of the ordinaries, of
Georgia. The convention was called to
order at 12 o’clock in the superior court*
room and 137 ordinaries were present.
The meeting is one of great interest
to the people of Georgia, as the ordi
naries may devise a number of meas
ures to better the execution of such
laws as come under their jurisdiction.
The first convention of ordinaries was
held in this city July 12th an 13th last
year. The session was a highly suc
cessful and interesting one.
Last year Judge H. W. Bell, of Jeffer
■on county, was elected president of the
association, and Judge llarlin, of Cal
houn, Georgia, was chosen secretary.
A number of important matters were
brought up for discussion. Among
them was the question of how and in
what mediums ordinaries’ advertise

of fees also came in for a share of at
This year’s convention is more large

rsuzdisni Charged With Taking Out la
suraace on a Man Nearly Dead.
Montreal, July 19. —Actions begun
by A. Demurs against the Massachus
etts benefit association of Boston, for
$17,000, and by C. A. Chenevert for $3,-
000, are the forerunners of a most sen
sational insurance case. Both claims
are for policies held bj* the the late Mr.
La Ferrierre, of Berthier, who had
transferred them to the plaintiffs,
creditors of his, before his death. The
benefit association contests the pay
ment on the ground that the policies
were not legally obtained ; that there
was impersonation, as La Ferrierre was
near death when the examination was
supposed to have taken place.
The plaintiff’s are well known mem
bers of the Liberal party in the prov
ence and friends of the deposed Pre
mier Mercier, and it is alleged that the
insurance scheme was arranged to ob
tain the necessary campaign funds.
The conservatives, who are at present
in power, will assist the company to the
fullest extent. La Ferrierre died some
time in February, and the matter has
been hanging ever since. Roubideaux,

New York, July 19. —The story from
Atlanta stating that Edwin Harcourt, a
convict laborer, is a son of a New York
millionaire, is laughed at by the mem
bers of the district attorney’s office and

quarters. Hareourt was convicted of
grand larceny and sentenced for one
year. He was leased to a brick manu
facturer near Atlanta, and his wife, who

The shooting occurred near ti e depot

The negroes were arrested as chicken

Matter to Both Branches.

Hour on Fa eh Side—Bill May Agaic
be iu Conference—Meeting of
Committee ou Kale*.
Washington, July 19.—The tariff
conferees met again at 2 o'clock yester
day. YYithin a very few minutes after
wards, Senator Voorhees announced
that it was apparent that the two
houses were unable to agree, and it
had been decided to report a general
disagreement. The senate republicans
stood up for tiie senate bill, as did the
democrats, while the house held out for
their bill; and it was formally decided
that the disagreement should be re
ported to their respective houses. Be
fore this was done. Mr. YYilson, chair
man of the committee on ways and
means, stated, that if they could get
together on coal, iron ore and sugar,
he believed they could fix up an agree
ment that would be satisfactory to
both houses. No proposition looking
to this end was made, and the action
here indicated was taken. • The whole
thing was over in a very few minutes.
Mr. Wilson stated after the confer
ence that he would make the report to
the house this morning. During the
informal discussion in the committee
room he was asked by Senator Jones
how long would the house probably
keep the bill, whereupon Mr. Wilson
replied that he thought the conferees
would he instructed to Insist upon the
house bill, and the conferees would be
sent back within the hours. The same
question was then put to Senator Jones,
and he said that the action of the sen
ate would depend upon the action of
the house. If the house insisted upon
heaping coals of fire upon the heads of
the senate conferees and assailing
them it would be very likely that the
senate, when the bill came back, would
in like manner debate the bill.
It is believed, however, that the bill
will again be in conference b3 r Saturday
at the latest. Although the report
shows a general disagreement in ail
items, this is not technically correct, for
the reason that agreement have been
made on many items, but it was deemed
best not to include them until a con
clusion had been reached on the whole

PENCE TALKS OF “BUNCO.”
Will Introduce Resolutions ('ailing Foi
Information as to the Silver Coinage.
Washington', July 19.—Representa
tive Pence, populist of Colorado, has
made public the substance of a resolu
tion which he intends to introduce in
the house at the earliest opportunity.
It requests the secretary of the treasury
to inform the house how many silver
I dollars have been minted during 1694,
: giving the data and amounts, how they
; have been issued and to whom; whether
any of these dollars have been sold or
issued to members of congress, or at
their request and he is requested to re
port to whom such dollars have been
sold or issued, and when, as showed by
the books of the director of the mint.
, If the books of the director do not show
this information then the facts are to
i he stated from the knowledge and recol
lection of the director and his employes.
States His Reason!!.
The reason for his resolution is here
given in his own words : “There is a
big bungo game going on down south,
and I want to see who is in it. Within
the past few days, I have received in
telligence from Alabama that Colonel
Oates* supporters there are exhibiting
silver dollars of the mintage of 1894.
with a view to persuading the people of
the state that the administration is fav
orable to free silver, and that it is coin
ing silver dollars. On Monday of this
week, I called upon Mr. Preston, the
director of the mint. I asked him how
many silver dollars had been struck off
this year. He replied that the number
was 406, that these were proof pieces,
and that they are struck off to prove
the new dies, which are changed each
year, and not for the purpose of circu
lation. I asked Mr. Preston to whom
these pieces had been sold. He replied
that a number of persons had bought
them, among them some senators and
representatives. 1 asked permission to
buy five and was told that I could have
Who Huy* the New Coins.
“Now 1 ” Mr. Pence went on, “what i
am trying to get at is the use which is
being made of these silver dollars by
the aforesaid senators and representa
tives. If my advices from the south are
correct, they are being used in Ala
bama to assist Colonel Oates’ candidacy
for the governorship. If certain news
paper statements are to be believed,
they are being used in Georgia and
Arkansas in the interest of the demo
cratic party also. If that is the case
I am correct in describing such action
as a bunco game, for it can be success
fully practiced in the backwoods dis
tricts where the people seldom if ever
read a newspaper. It now remains to
be seen if the administration is a party
to these practices. Some people have
intimated that it is. 1 have nothing to
say about that. If we secure consid
eration of the resolution, it may de
velop surprising results.”
Pence’* Charge Denied.
MONTGOJfEBY, Ala., July 19. —The
charge of Pence, of Colorado, as to the
use of silver dollars coined In is&-t by
Colonel Oates, is without foundation,
Colonel Oates expressly declares in his
speeches that silver dollars are not
now being coined He states that only
fractional silver is being turned out a£
ON THE BRIGHTON TURF.

Brighton Beach Race Track, July

fairly good. Things looked temptingly
easy for the talent and they were out
in full force in consequence. The first
race went to the faithful, and, em
boldened by their success, they surged
into the ring and bet heavily on Figaro
for the wanner of the second, but their
surprise was great when Dutch Skater,
20 to 1, w r on, beating Stonenellie, on
which similar odds had been placed, by
a head. The best the favorite could do
was to finish third. The backers of
favorites were soon in line again, how
ever, and Harry Reed in the third and
Arab in the fifth replenished then
pockets to some extent. Stonenellie
w-as backed heavily in the fourth event,
but the talent went w-rong again, for
Lady Violet, 2 to 1, carried off the
honors and raked in the largest purse
of the day.

correcting the record of Tuesday’s pro
ceedings. which showed him. according
to the report of the tellers, to have been
present and not voting, while in fact he
was not present. This gave Mr. Reed
an opportunity to contrast the efficiency
of the system of counting a quorum in
vogue of the fifty-first congress with
that recently adopted by the house. He
insisted that the experience of mankind
demonstrated that the former was the
better. Speaker Crisp defended the
present system, asserting its superiority
over any that had gone before, and that,

Id the Senate.
In the absence of the vice-president,
who has gone to his home in Blooming"
ton, 111., the senate was presided over
yesterday by its president pro tern, Har
ris. The Indian appropriation bill was
taken up. As it passed the house it
appropriated $0,737,518; as reported to
the senate from the committee on ap
propriation it is increased by $2,596,868,
making an aggregate of $9,327,386 —as
against $7,854,240 for the fiscal year of
It was taken up at 1 o’clock p. rn.,
and was considered until 6, when it
went over without final action till
today. It appropriates about nine and
a half million dollars—one and a half
millions more than the amount appro
priated for the fiscal year 1894. The
bill gave rise to very little discussion,
that little being on the subject of
the education of Indian children and
of the disproportionately large share of
the money which has gone in recent
years to the Catholie church. No
change was made in these provisions of
the bill —one million dollars being ap
propriated for the support of Indian
day and industrial schools and for
other educational purposes. All the
committee amendments were disposed
of, and the only obstacle to the final
passage of the bill was the offering of
independent amendments and the dis
cussion to which they gave rise.
