The Defeat of the Elections Bill Now
Conceded by Its Friends.

Crow Creek Indian Publle Build
ing CongroMloaal Proceedings. ;
: Washington, Jan. 27. The beat
friends of the elections bill frankly ad
mit that the outlook for its success is
almost hopeless. . There can no longer
be any excuse for maintaining that
either the closure resolution or the
elections bill has any real encourage
ment. There remains of ! this session
but five weeks. Mr. Allison, chairman
of the senate committee on appropria
tions, said that all of three weeks' long
continuous consideration of the appro
priation bills would be required to com
plete these measures before March 4.
This would leave but two weeks for
general legislation. Not one-half of
the work upon the regular appropria
tion bills has been completed. It is
stated that the reapportionment bill
will occupy nearly all of this week in
the senate.' Then there are the bank
ruptcy, supreme court reorganization,
general agricultural, - international
copyright, and other measures, which,
of necessity, must be passed, but not
half of this can be acted upon before
the time comes whon the appropriation
bills must be taken , up if they .are
passed before March 4.

Washington, Jan. 27. The senate
met at noon in continuation of the leg
islative day of Thursday, the pending
question being a resolution to amend
the rnles by providing a method of
closing debate. Senator Morgan re
sumed the floor and continued hi ar
gument in opposition to tLe proposed
rule and the electrons bill. - ' - " '
At 1 20 Senator Morgan yielded for a
motion to proceed to the consideration
of the apportionment bill. V; ',- ' !
Senator Dolph moved to lay that mo
tion on the table and the motion was
rejected. A vote was taken on Sena
tor Wolcott's motion to take up the ap
propiation bill and it was carried.
The usual skirmishing in the house
took place as to the reading and ap
proval of the journal. The journal
was finally approved. .
The yeas aud nays were then ordered
on a motion that the house go io to com -rnittee
of the whole on the uavy appro
priation bill, but the call of the roll
was interrupted by information given
by Mr. Rogers of Arkansas that the
force bill was defeated in the senate.
Then the Democrats gave cheer after
SUrer Pool Investigation. '
Washington. Jan. 27. In the silver
pool investigation Senator Cameron
testified that he bought silver on a
margin in the early part of June, be-
. fore the silver bill was passed by the
senate, and disposed of it before the
v bill became a law. He had no knowl
edge of any other senator, representa
tive or official of the government hav
ing any interest in the purchase of sil
ver. Cameron said he bought the sil-
moditv.and save tne matter no thomrht.
Never knew Owenby, and never talked
with other senators about the silver

John Tanner of Illinois knew nothing
of silver pools or transactions except

Congressman Flower took the stand
and said he never bought a dollar's
worth of silver nor certificates in his
life and had no knowledge of a pool.

Ananias Oedbold UItn a Warrant y D.ed
, ' to HI Plantation,
rnrc BLcrra. Ark., Jan. 27. A war
ranty deed was filed in the recorder's
office in this city, executed on Dec. -6.
1880, In which Ananias God bold,' for
the consideration .'of. $25,000, conveys
his title in the Bob Roy and Roane
plantations to Daniel G. Fones and O.
H. McCarthy of Little Rock. Ark. It
is well known that Qodbold is tne chief
beneficiary of the large sum which
Treasurer Woodruff is short in his ac
counts, and the conveyance of the
property purchased with the state's
money is only a partial restitution.
About three months ago God bold gave
a deed of trust on the same places for
$38,000, and it is supposed that ho
turned a part of the money to the treas
ury, thus paying back in all nearly
$50,000. The remainder of the short
age, it is thought, has been made good
with the financial aid of tne bondsmen
and by the sale of Mr. Woodruffs
property.- wno no doubt will now re
ceive a clear receipt and the defalca
tion will be declared a myth. .
. Contesting the S-Cent Fare.'
Ditp.oit. Mich., Jan. 27. The Mich
igan passenger agents met here to talk.
over the situation "resulting from the
chanee of rates on the Chicago and
Grand Trunk, necessitated by the de
cision of tne supreme court of Michigan
sustaining the validity of the 5;-cent
fare law. When the Chicago and
Grand Trunk determined to contest the
constitutionality of the law the fare
was placed at the usual figure of 3
cents per mile. The decision sustain
ing the law made it neceary to re
duce the rates to it cents, and this, in
turn, makes a change in the rates of
all connecting and competing lines.
This makes a change necessary in tne
entire rate-book of Michigan, and it
was decided to call a meeting or rate
clerks, for Feb. 8 in order to do tne
work. The determination of the Chi
cago and Grand Trunk to carry the
matter to the supreme court of the
United States was commended ;by all
present. . . ,-.- '
'.. Young Tootle', Marriage Denied, j
St. Joseph, Mo., Jan. 27. the friends
and relatives of Milton Tootle, Jr., the
young millionaire who was reported to
have married Miss Belle Golden, the
pretty daughter of Farmer Golden, de
ny that he has married the girl, or that
he ever knew her. The friends claim,
and it is true, that Mr. Tootle has not
been in St. Joseph for some days. Mrs.
Golden claims emphatically that Tootle
has called upon her daughter, and that
once she went with him to a fashiona
ble party. . The Tootles deny this. It
is believed that some young man has
been impersonating young Mr. Tootle
and that the. girl ha assisted in the de
ception. She is now supposed to be out
of the city with her newly found and
falsely named husband, and no one
knows who he is. The matter is the
subject of much comment in St.

. Rock Springs, Wyo., Jan. 27. Wm.
Mosgrove, mayor of Rock Springs,
went thirty or forty miles up on the
mountains last Thursday with Charles
Williams on a deer hunt. They re'
turned Saturday morning at 11 o'clock
and at 4 o clock Jdosgrove was a corpse.
The camping out in the severe climate
up on the mountains was too much for
him, and the suffering ne endured on
the way and after he got home is said
by those present to have been terrible
beyond description. Mr. Mosgrove was
one of the old landmarks of this min

American house, the pioneer, hotel of

Correspondent O Be ere Injured la
a Conflict with Striker. '
EtENOsAsES, Jan. 27. The news
from the seat of war in Chili is of a
most exciting character. The war ves
sels of the revolutionists have taken
up a position in the road stead of
Porto Quimbo and have commenced
bombarding the city. The regular
troops, which have been hurried to the
defense of the beleaguered city from
Valparaiso, are . now quartered in
Lazrena hospital and the various school
buildings. "Such of the residents of the
place as are, able to do so are hurrying
away from Porto Coqnimbo, to Quimbo
proper or Lazrena, the capital of the
Province of Coquimbo, seven , miles
northeast of the port. The revolu
tionists' fleet has also blockaded the
Port of Tonguey, and the department
and government has dispatched 3.000,
under command of Gen. Torberal, to
the relief and reinforcement of that
place. It is reported that a battle has
occurred at Tonguey between the gov
vernment troops and the insurrection
ary forces, but nothing is yet known as
to the result of the . engagement, or if
one has actually occurred.. The revo
lutionists have occupied La Mache Alto
in the province of Valparaiso, and have
seized upon the national factories, after
expelliug the government director,
who remained loyal to the for
tunes of President Balmaceda.
Quilota, a town of about ,13,000
population in the same province, has
alBo.beeu captured by the rebels. The
prolongation of the struggle is having
so disastrous an eltectupon the prop
erty of the foreigners resident in Chili
that the various diplomatic represe Na
tives of foreign nations at Santiago de
Chili have threatened to immediately
leave the capital and embark on the
war vessels of different nationalities
now laying off the coast, of Chili, un
less the conflict is brought to a speedy
conclusion. , ,,
A Dynamite Seara. ,
London, Jan. i7. It is stated on
very high authority , that there is, a
great dynamite scare among the au

creasing their vigilance at all points
and detectives swarm in Qneenstown,
Liverpool, 'Southampton and other
ports. The police guards have been in
creased around the public buildings,
and the authorities are considering the
advisability of issning orders for a
closer examination of luggage of pass
engers arriving in England from the
continent and the United States, which
was 8 topped a few months ago. This
would be done wi thont hesitation, but
it is not deemed desirable to create

latter is the most important suggestion

now do, the raising of money for re

THE COALMINERS' STRIKt. ?.
Seven Thousand Men Determined to Get
What They Demand,
Pittsburg, Pa., Jan. 27. Reports
from many of the up-river mining
towns indicate that there is now very
little hope of . arbitrating the strike
which has thrown 7,000 men out of
employment and is paralyzing trade in
the Monongahela valley. The leaders
among the miners assert positively that
the only basis - upon - which they will
settle is the payment of the cent ad
vance. The operators from the begin
ning plainly said they could not pay
the price demanded.
As far as could be definitely learned
the miners are strengthening instead
of weakening in the struggle, and a
settlement seems far off. The pools
are filling up with empty craft and
this, perhaps ai mncb as anything else,
gives the miners the impression that
coal is badly needed and makes them
indifferent to the idea of compromis
ing. As yet there has been no suffering
among the miners, though a great
many.it is said, are on the verge of it
If the miners go to work now at the
old prices, comparatively steady work
would be assured.
