special to tba World aays: Beverley
Dangarfleld. whose wife waa assaulted
by Edward Blunt at Asbury Park laet
Tuesday night, haa returned to bis home
in Alexandria, while Mrs. Dangerfield.
who arrived here last evening in com
pany with har husband is slopping at
tba "ouse of Mrs. Barrett on I street.
Mr. Dangerheld ia resting in sec'usioo
after the excitement of the week, and
to all who call a brief statement ia made
either that the ia not in or nothing fur
ther can ba aaid about the affair. Kev-
erdy DangrrSeld held a consultation
with a few intimate friends last night,
but declined to talk of the result. Ilia
friends declare today that injuries to
Mrs. Dangerfield have been gro sly ex
aggerated. and that Blunt only seized
her by the wrut, releasing her when
ahe mtde an outcry. A few inconsider
ate Alexandrians declare Dangerfield
will challenge Blunt to a duel, but those
who are more familiar with the code
duello at tbia and point to the fact that
only gentlemen can meet upon the field
of hoaoi whereas Blunt has already, by
hie conduct, placed hi.uaelf "beyond the
pale." Dangerfield might shoot him on
sight they aay, but could never fight a
duel with him. It ia the general opin
ion, however that nothing further will
come out of the affair but that every
thing will be done to prevent additional
publicity. It ia not believed that Mrs.
Dangerfield will return to her home in
A lexandria for some time.

tion of the labor billa that have been
sent us by tba house of representatives."
Sherman gave notice of an amend
ment which ba proposed to offer to the
tariff bill looking toward reciprocacy
with the Dominion of Canada in coal
ind toward extending trade relations
between Canada and the United States.

ceed to the consideration of the house

Oueation being on the paragraph as to
wool and woollen yarn, to which the
finance committee had reported an
amendment iccreaaing the duty per
pound from twice to two andoce half
times the duty imposed on unwashed

triendly criticism of the tariff bill.
Aftf long discussion the eoronvttee
mendmecls were agreed to CC to 18.
To the n xt paragraph, relating o
blai kets, bate of aool and flannels for
underware, the committee amendment
makea the duty the same as thst on a
pound and a half c f unwsshed wool of
the first class, in addition to tha a J valo
rem rates. Agreed to.
Finally the wool schedule was com
pleted, and Vance offered an additional

Cooper, of Indian a, rising to a ques
t ion ot pi ivilrge, atated that one ct the
chargea made in tha resolution offered
by bim for the investigation of tbeofllee
of the commissioner of penaiona was
thst the commissioner was selling at ck
in the refrigerator company to employes
of tha pension offi . Today he had
leaned that one of the members of the
investigating committee, Representative
Smyaer, ot Ohio, waa one ot the stock
holders. Cooper therefore offered a reso
lution discharging Smyser from the
committee and directing the speaker to
appoint bis successor.
Smyser aaid he ha'l had no intimation
that he was going to be .appointed on
tba committee until the announcement
aa made by the speaker. As a member
of tba committee he bad entered upon
the discharge of hit dutiy and he bad
dona it faithfully and well. He did
own soma of the stick, but that fact
could in no manner effect the integrity
or honor ot en honest man, and friends
who knew bim would never impute to
bim a want ot h;nor or want of integ
rity. Smyser arid there was nettling in the
charges against General Ilaum in any
Tay affecting him, but in order to satis
fy the other aid ot the house and the
country, and in duty to himself he
aaked to ba relieved from further ser
vice on the oommUteo.

Nk York, Sept 4. -Tha Herald's spe
cial from Montreal, Que, aays: Tba Oa
zette, the gjvemsoei.t organ, will pub
lish tomorrow what may be regarded at
a reflex of the Domioirn govern seat's
toward the reciprocity reeolutirn intro
duced into the Uni led Slates Senate yee
terday bj Senator bherman. Speaking
of the terma of the resolution it will say:
"This propoMlion seems to us admirably
constructed and of a character te excite
approval in Canada. It ia strictly ia
coord t.ith t'-e policy of the Dominion
government set forth during tha nego
tiation of the aliortive tisheriee treaty ia
1888, when the British commissi were,
acting at the suggestion of tbeCanauiaa
ministry, proposed to take up the whole
question cf the trade relations of tha
two countries and aettle the fisheries
dispute on the base of the reciprocity
arrangements. It does not put a Dietol
at the head of the Canadian government
with tho threat Put the control of your
fiscal affairs in our bands or suffer a
commercial crusade againat your inter
ests." On the contrary it provides al
ternatives and proper latitude. Under
the terma of the resolution, the ques
tions relating to the existing treaty to
transportation in bond, to fleheriee to
the reciprocal privilege; in wracking, ia
a word to the commercial relatione of
Canada and the United States in their
widest sense, can be made matters of
discussion and negotiation. Whether
the resolution will be adopted ia doubt
ful. Mr. Sherman, however, ia ona of
the mos; influential members of the sen
ate and poeaeeeed of power in the repub
lican party. Just now tne drift in tha
Dominion party is toward reciprocity in
accordance with the lead taken by Mr
Blaine. Meanwhile it ia satisfactory to
have mooted by public men ot John
Shermau's eminence and ability a pro
posal for enlarged commercial relations
whose acceptance will be entirely con
sistent with Canadian honor and Cana
dian interests.
