CINCINNATI. Jan. 17.—A special to

asvllle. Oa., aaya that Hon. Benjamin
Butterworth. United States commis
sioner of patents, who had been ill at
Plneywoods hotel there for several
weeks, died at 3:16 yesterday after
noon. The end was peaceful and when
It came his wife and children were at
his bedside. Ho came here to recu
perate from at attack of pneumonia,
and recovered rapidly until two weeks
ago, when he suffered from uremic
convulsions. From that relapy he
never recovered. His body wul he
sent to Washington tomorrow,
Benjamin Butterworth was what Is
known as a "birthright Quaker.”
Those who knew him best during his
busy career are unanimous In suying
of him: "His dally life was as exem
plary of the tenets of that good, old
faith as that of any public official
could he."
He was born In Warren county. O.,
October 22, 1837, was a member of the
slate senate of Ohio, from Warren and
u’.id Butler counties In 1873-4. Mr.
Butterworth was elected a represent
ative In congress of the First Ohio dis
trict, Including the city of Cincinnati,
to the Forty-sixth. Forty-seventh,
Forty-ninth. Fiftieth atn» Fifty-first
congresses. From then until uppolnt
t 1 to the position he occupied at his
death he devoted most of ins time to
the practice of law, especially patent
law. In this city.
"lien" Butterworth, as he has al
ways been host known, spent his earlier
years round about Batnevllle and Fos
ter's Crossing the lutter a little sta
tion on the Miami railroad. His father
was William Butterworth and . Is
mother a Linton, a family noted
throughout the entire line for their
keenness of Intellect, powers of per
cep;imi anu serengm in speccn aim
debate, noth parents were of Quaker
ancestry. Major Hutterworth’s keen
Intellect and remarkable power* of
perception were inherited from Ills
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.—In Wash

Major Butterworth njoyed a wiu» ac
quaintance and great pop i' ,' y. und
the news of his death, while by no
means unexpected, will cause general
Horrow here. No public man prob
ably had a larger circle of friends
at the capitol. He contracted Ills
fatal illness while on the slump In the
late Ohio campaign. No information
has been received us to the time or
place of the funeral.

leaned to them at a low rate of inter
est on safe security, and without the

vided that the volume of currency
shall not exceed $50 per capita.

tion of all railroads, telegraph and
telephone lines.
5. The opositlon to alien ownership
and holding of land for speculative
fi. Opposition to court made law.
7. Opposition to trusts.
8. We especially recommend the
initiative and referendum and the Im
perative mandate.

to tile Upper House.
Avoiding U'nbnn Itelmte.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 15 —The House
managers derided not to proceed with
the consideration of the diplomatic
and consular appropriation yesterday,
but to give the day for the consider
ation of private bills. This was doubt
less done to avert the possibility of
precipitating u sensational Cuban de
bate during the consideration of- the
appropriation bill. Inflammatory
speeches during the present critical
state of affairs In Havana would, the
conservative leaders believe, be par
ticularly unfortunate.
When the house adjourned Thursday
night the amendment to the agricul
tural appropriation bill providing for
the publication of another edition of
the "Horse Book" wns pending. Yes
terday the friends of the amendment
compromised with the appropriations
committee by agreeing to a reduction
of the number to be printed from
000 to 75,000. As amended the Llll
whs passed.
The resolution accepting the Invi
tation of the government of Norway
to participate In the International
Fisheries exposition at Bergen from
May to September, 1S9», was called up
by Mr, Simpkins (rep.. Maas.). Mr.
Cannon, chairman if the appiopriatlon
committee, said he thought on the ex
position Question congress was running
wild. We had had domestic exposi
tions at Philadelphia, Chicago, New
OrlfiiriM (Mn.-'lntinti I .miInvi 1 !r* At Inn
ta and Nashville, and were now about
to have one at Omaha. Abroad we
had participated in the expositions a;
Vienna, Paris, Berlin and Brussels.
The anxiety of would-be commissioners
to have the honor and gl ry cf our
country represented at these foreign
expositions was agonizing. Now here
came this exposition at Bergen. Twenty
thousand dollars to be apprr priated
now. If this resolution parsed con
gress would he called upon to foot the
hill for a deficiency of *2o,000. He gave
it as his deliberate judgment that th<»
interests of the United States did not
rcuulre our participation In this expo
sition. If we did our du'y by the
Paris exposition that would be enough.
After some transaction of some rou
tine business in the senate yesterday,
Mr. Hoar, of Massachusetts, presented
the following joint resolution propos
ing an amendment to . e constitution
That the following article be pro
posed to the legislatures of the several
states as nn amendment to the con
otluition of tlte Unied Sates:
The term cf office of the preVdmt
and of the Fifty-sixth congress snail
continue until the 30th doy of April,
in the year 1899. at noon. The senators
whose existing term would otherwise
expire on tiic 4th doy of March, In the
year 1899, or thereafter, shall continue
in office until noon < f the 30th day of
April, succeeding rucli expiration: and
the 30th clay of April, at noon, shall
thereafter be substituted for the 4th
of March as the commencement and
termination of the official term of the
president, vice preside nt, senators and
representatives in congress.
The resolution was referred to the
committee on privileges and elections.
Mr. Quay, of Pennsylvania, offered
the following resolution, which was re
ferred to the committee on Indian af
Resolved. That the secretary of the
interior shall be and is hereby instruct
ed to investigate the facts attending
the recent alleged atrocious burning
to death of iwo Seminole Indians by
a mob in Oklahoma Territory and
make report thereon to congress. Tha*
the Burn of J2.-j.000, or «o much thereof
r.s may be necessary, is herebv appro
priated out of any money in the treas
ury not otherwise appropriated for the
investigation, apprehension and pun

Mlri'Me of thn Kimil Populists Form n
>rw Organisation.
ST. I/)UIS, Jan. J5.—A new party
was born in the conference of the
populists and named the People's
The People's party proposes to go it
alone. It has severed all connection
with the national populist committee
and made all arrangements for admin
istering Its own estate without the aid
or advice of uny outside party.
With a few exceptions, the delegates
declared themselves unequivocally In
favor of going It alone In the future.
The referendum system was most
highly complimented Hnd recommend
ed for use among the middle of the
readers In settling matters of national
Importance to the order, and there was
a practical agreement nmong the dele
gates that a national presidential con
vention should be held this year.
There was lengthy discussion, and It
was not until u late hour that the pro
eeedure for future action was agreed
upon. Finally a report was adopted
as follows In part:
To the People of the United Htates:
The fusion movement consummated at
St. Louts in July, lk!*G, and the treat
ment of our candidate for vice presi
dent in the campaign that followed,
gave rise to such dissension among the
j rank and llle of the People's party as
! to threaten the absolute dlsmenber
ment of the only political organization
; honestly contending for the social and
political rights of the laboring and
! producing classes of the country.
It has been the purpose always of
j the committee to be courteous to the
j national committee, and our supreme
desire has been at all times to pro
mote a harmonious co-operation with
said committee, that factional differ
ences might be obliterated, our party
prestige regained and our organization
restored to Its once splendid estate.
This comm' tee feels confident of It*
ability to show that ll Is no fault of
ours that I he national commltte*' Is nut
present as a body to-day. but It does
not choose to waste valuable time In
wangling ovep question* of official
We avow It to be our sincere pur
pose now. as ever heretofore, lo pro
mote In very hnorable way the reform
movement on true populist lines, and
we deem the Issues too momentous and
tlie dangers threatening freo govern
ment loo great to allow us to to
consider personal grievances or af
fronts, or to permit wounded dignity,
res. or imaginary, lo overshadow pa
il lot lc duties.
I cider prdeent conditions our ,be
loved organization la slowly but sure
ly disintegrating and c ur comrades are
clamorous for aggressive action.
Having In vain importuned those
who assumed to be our superiors 10
permit us to aid them In the grand
work of reorganizing the People's
party, that it may accomplish Its glor
