Congress Investigating the Tor

THEY SOUGHT OUR PROTECTION.
The Minister at Shanghai Delivered Them
Up to the Enemy—Their Death Was
a Most Horrible One—Other
News From Congress.
Washington, December 6. The
most important matter that was consid
ered by the-United States senate yes
terday was surrendering of two Japa
nese citizens to Chinese officials at
Shanghai. A resolution requesting the
president to furnish the senate with in
formation on the subject, was offered
Monday by Senator Lodge, of Massa
chusetts. This was taken up and re
ferred to the committee on foreign af
Mr. Lodge stated some of the promi
nent facts of the case: “The two Japa
nese citizens in question had been given
up,” he said, “by the United States con
cul at Shanghai, and had been put to
death with the most hiedous tortures.
He regarded their surrender, under the
circumstances, as an act of the greatest
possible discredit to the humanity of
the United States and to the humanity
of all civilized men.”
Senator Morrill, of Vermont, who
was yesterday instructed by the fi
nance committee to make an adverse
report on some of Senator Peffer's fi
nancial measures, gave notice that he
would, next Wednesday, “seek an op
portunity of submitting some brief re
marks on some marvellous senatorial
bills and quack panaceas for real and
imaginary public evils and grievances.”
The resolution offered by Mr. Peffer
on Monday last, calling on the presi
dent for a statement of the facts and
circumstances which made the presence
and use of United States troops neces
sary in Chicago, in July, 1894, was laid
before the senate, and after some dis
cussion was referred to the judiciary
committee, yeas 43, nays 4.
A FATHER’S RIGHT.
To Kidnap His Dangliter From the Ursu
Dallas, Tex., December o.—After
having been kept under surveillance
and nominal arrest since Saturday
night, Charles Knox and his two little
daughters were yesterday afternoon
released by Chief of Police Arnold and
they and Mrs. Clark and Miss Powell
continued their journey to California.
Knox kidnapped his two daughters
from the Ursuline Convent without the
knowledge of the wife last Monday,
and was arrested here on a telegram
from Superintendent Gaston, of the
New Orleans department. After the
arrest was made the New Orleans chief
telegraphed Chief Arnold “Hold girls.
Their father deserted wife and three
children. The girls’ uncle Robert will
come for t'aeiu.” Chief Arnold asked
for the opinion of City Attorney Wosen
craft, as Knox was about to institute
habeas corpus proceedings. Wosen
craft decided that the parties could not
legally be detained; that the father had
the right to kidnap his children from a
convent without his wife’s consent; that
the children could not be arrested,
as they had done no wrong, and were
under their father’s care. Chief Ar
nold thereupon set all of the parties

A Man Misappropriates Money and Then
Lincoln, 111., December o.—Jere Mat
thews, defeated candidate for county
clerk, was found in an unconscious
condition, resulting from morphine
poisoning yesterday. Physicians re
vived him and pressing him for an ex
planation he reluctantly told them to
look into one of his pockets where they
would find his last official report. The
report disclosed, according to his fig
ures, that he was $1,924 short. On the
back of the document, in his hand
writing, was this confession:
“I have taken morphine. I was not born to
be a thief. Cannot stand disgrace by being a
thief. Get a lot in Burson cemetery and bury
me there, as I do not wish to disgrace my pa
rents by being buried beside them.”
He than relapsed into unconscious

Sock Has Eaten Much Wheat.
Washington, December 0. —The re
turns from the correspondents of the
statistical division of the department of
agriculture relative to the amounts of
wheat fed to stock estimate the quan
tity already fed, that is to say up to
October 30th, at 40,030,000 bushels; and
the estimated amount to be fed at 29,-
273,000 bushels, making a total of 75,-
These figures on wheat feeding are
merely the meagre estimates from those
states wherein correspondents have
complied with the request of the de
partment, and must not be taken as
anything more than an attempt at
approximation of the total feeding of
wheat from present supply. The se
verity and length of the winter will
necessarily influence the final findings.

ANOTHER BANK LOST MONEY.
Hut After Uncovering Something Like
Seeley Methods it Was Refunded.
New York, December o. —The book
keeper of the East Side bank, No. 135
Grand street, a state bank with a capi
tal of half a million, is accused of em
bezzling $403 of the bank.s funds by
methods akin to those employed by
Seeley. The amount stolen was re
funded and the bookkeeper, Samuel
Pollenz by name, discharged. Pollenz
had a confederate, it is alleged, who
drew the cosh just as Baker did, and
the bookkeeper handled the checks.
The alleg’ed embezzlement was discover
ed two months ago, but the guilty party
was not discovered until yesterday.
The matter came to light through the
rotation system, and the officials in
speaking of the affair yesterday referr
ed to the outsiders’ crookedness as
merely an “overdrawing of his ac
count.” The money, they added, had v
been refunded. (
SUGAR DROPS AGAIN. f
The Current Price is Said to be Lower
Than Ever Before.
New York, December 6. —The cur
rent rate on sugar is said to be the low

of refined sugar yesterday, making the
card rate for granulated 4cents per
pound. The Franklin refinery has re
sumed operations on a reduced scale,
and the MeCahan refinery is also, said
to be at work, but the Spreckles plant
is still idle. Reports from the office of
the trust are to the effect that the Bos
ton refinery is working wiih half force
and the Madison and Werchers’ plant
in New York are doing likewise; that
the Havemeyer and Elder refinery have
nearly a full force and the Brooklyn re
finery is idle. The great increase in
production is said to be the chief cause.

“POP GUN” BILLS DEAD.
Probably the Result of the Senate Finance
Washington, December 0. —The sen
ate finance committee practically de
cided yesterday morning that the “pop
gun” bills were dead. While the dis
cussion was not in as plain words as
this statement, the committee decided
that nothing could be done with them
at present. There was a very full at
tendance of members. All except
Jones, of Nevada, and White, of Cali
fornia, were present. They discussed
that part of the president’s message re
lating to sugar, and when they finally
adjourned it was with the understand
ing that “it was better to await Secre
tary Carlisle's Jull report before any
thing definite was done.” Some of the
senators connect Senator Vest’s cloture
resolution with the inaction of the fi
nance committee. They claim that the
way Senator Vest’s resolution is re
ceived will decide much. Without
such a rule nothing can be done in the
senate, and if there is a chance of its
adoption there might be a slight chance
for some financial legislation.

GERMANY’S UGLY SPIRIT.
That Country is Angry Over the Tariff On
Washington, December 6. —Indica-
tions seem to multiply of a determined
purpose on the part of Germany, open
ly or by indirection, to interpose ob
stacles in the way of the importation of
American products in Germany, so long
as the .discriminating duty against Ger
man beet sugar imposed by the existing
new tariff law is maintained. First,
on a pretext of the transmission of
Texas fever (proved to be impossible)
the importation of live cattle from the
United States into Germany was pro
hibited. Next, restrictions were
placed upon American canned goods.
Then a commission was appointed to
investigate whether American cotton
could not be supplanted by other kinds
of German manufacture. Now the de
partment of state has been notified
through its consular representatives
at Bremen of a proposed change in the
German customs tariff by which the
cottonseed oil will be increased 250 per
cent on the present rates.

wife, daughter, Miss Nellie, ’Mr. James

physicians were summoned, who after
investigation offered the opinion that
they had -been poisoned by drinking
coffee. The coffee was analyzed and
the physicians discovered traces of
some foreign substance, believed to be
arsenic. Mrs, Keene prepared the cof
fee herself, and the family are unable
to account for the presence of arsenic

the ease. All the parties suffered

fact constituting what is known as the

freight war has been going in the ter
ritory south of the Potomac river dur
ing the past summer, showing the
causes of the war, the great injury re
sulting to numerous places and dealers
therein, etc., and says that the rate
adopted in the territory was ill-consid

or two competing carriers. It taught
no new lessons and brought about no
guarantee of future observance of the i
rates by the parties whom the cut was
designed to injure.

sitting on the left hand side of the car
when near them burst a blue flame. In
a few seconds the whole seat was

the car the motorman and conductor,
after turning off the current, tore off
the burning cushions and attempted to
put the fire out with sand. The flames
were getting the best of them when
water was procured from nearby stores
and the blaze was put out. The dam
age was slight but the alarm of the pas

FOR A CONTEST LAW
Governor Oates Says He Favor®
Such a Measure.
HIS FIRST MESSAGE HAS BEES REAM
He Makes Two Recommendations That!
Meet the Populist Demands—'Wants I
the Judiciary Increased and
Lynching* Stopped. V
Montgomery, Ala., December 6.
Governor Oates sent a long- message to
the assembly yesterday. Its chief fea
ture is the urg-ing- of an increase in the
tax rate of half a mill and the improve
ment of the assessment laws. He also
advises that the present movement to
take the convicts out of the mines be
checked so as to make them self-sus
taining: that the number of judicial
circuits be increased so as to expedite
the administration of justice as a cheek
to lyuchings, the making a felony of
carrying concealed weapons in order to
suppress the practice, because of the
repeal of the federal election laws, he
advises the abolition of the present sep
aration of state and federal elections.
He recommends that a law regulating
contests for state offices be passed,
which is in accord with the populitede
mand. In the light of the probable re
peal of the state bank tax by congress,
he suggests the enactment of a state
banking law, based on deposits with
the state treasurer of solvent federal
state, county or municipal bonds. The
other feature of the message are of
The one that excites most comment!
is the recommendation of a contest law. I
The bulk of opinion in the past has!
been against such an enactment, as was!
demonstrated by the failure of the as
sembly two years ago to adopt a similar
recommendation by Governor Jones.
The position of its opponents is that
only the assembly as present should be
charged with the power of going into a
matter of such great magnitude and
concern as a contest for a state office
arid that any statutory regulation
■would put a premium on such under
takings and lead to chaos, as in West
Virginia some years ago.

the United States government and rob
merchants and business houses in all
parts of the country, is on trial in the
United States court here on one of tho
many charges against him. lie was
convicted of forgery yesterday. The
plan of the postmaster conspiracy con
cocted by Barrett was for scope, bold
ness and ingenuity, almost without a
parallel. Barrett ivas influential in
politics and at one time his appoint
ment as chief clerx in the attorney
general’s office at Washington was
thought assured. The gang through
influence got postmasters appointed
places where there were really no post-'
offices. They swindled the government
by fradulent collections and sale of
stamps and on fraudulent warrants and
used the mails to swindle merchants in
New York and all over the countrv.
