those who remained would be reduced

Only Eighty-Five 1’ubllc and Eighteen
Private Mil* So Far l’aaited.
Washington, June 13.—Up to to-day
only eighty-five public measures have
been enacted into law and the private
laws are limited to the unprecedented- i
ly small number of eighteen.
The whole number of bills intro
duced in the house is 7,433—furbelow
the average. Of these 1,030 have been
reported—also far below the usual
number at this date. The falling off
of bills, reports, etc., has been so
great that it has been one of the main
causes of the recent wholesale reduc
tion of force in the government print
ing office. It is said that the former
public printer, Mr. Palmer, estab
lished his force with the expectation
that the amount of work to be done
by this congress would keep pace
with that of former congresses, and
that this in part accounts for the
large surplus of help Public Printer
Benedict found when he recently as
sumed charge.
The large falling off in general
legislation is attributed to the cen
tering of interest in the tariff and to
the depleted condition of the treasury.
Senators and members have known
that it was useless to press bills for
public buildings and other appropria
tions in view of the stringency at the
treasury aud have refrained from
urging private measures. Owing to
delays and objections of various kinds
only two private pension bills have
got through the house and become
laws. As a rule the private pension
acts are so numerous that the total of
private bills is very large.
The house calendar up to date is
clear of all appropriation bills except
the deficiency, but there are 130 im
portant general bills awaiting a hear
ing and eighty-six bills of a general
character not carrying an appropria
tion. Among these arc bills to admit
New Mexico and Oklahoma to state
hood, to send a congressional commis
sion to examine the Nicaragua
canal route, to finally adjudicate
swamp land grants, to permit pen
sions to non-r&sidents, to establish
consular inspection of immigrants, to
investigate the effect of machinery
on labor, to investigate the wages of
women and children, to construct
canals from Lake Superior to the
Mississippi river and from Lake Erie
to the Ohio river, to prohibit dealings
in options, to promote the efficiency of
the naval militia, to establish a uniform
bankruptcy system and to aid the
Southern Cotton exposition. Quite a
number of these will get a hearing,
but the number to be interrupted by
adjournmeut will ba exceptionally
They Must Hereafter Attend Home
WASHINGTON, June 18.—A provision
of the Indian appropriation bill, which
was adopted in committee of the
whole, prohibits all Indian children
from attending any school more than
forty miles from their reservation
until they have gone to the school
provided for them at home at least
four years. This provision of the
bill, if it is enacted into a law, will
have the effect of reducing the num
ber of Indians sent away to eastern
schools and very materially increas
ing their home education. Several
of. the western representatives are
confident that the Carlisle school will
suffer from the provision.
There is a growing sentiment in
favor of educating the Indians at home
as far as possible, and no legislation
of recent years has been so pronounced
in this direction as that which was in
corporated into the Indian bill.
Representative Curtis of Kansas
made a hard fight to have the section
of the bill approved which secures to
the Indians the principal and interest
due them from Southern states for
the sale of their old reservations. It
amounts now to more than §3,000,000,
and the states have shown a disposi
tion to defer payment indefinitely.
The proposition was however, defeat
ed on a point of order.
Delegate Flynn of Oklahoma, will
again attempt to have incorporated in
the bill his commutation plan for
Oklahoma, permitting settlers to
prove up their claims in fourteen
months. Failing to secure this in the
house, an effort will be made to have
the senate make the provision.
Two Brooklyn Pugilists Hattie in Thomas
A. Edison's laboratory.
New York, June 18.—In the labora
tory of Thomas A. Edison, the in
ventor, near Orange, N. J., last night,
Mike Leonard and Jack Cushing, both
of Brooklyn fought in the interest of
seience before Edison and a part}- of
six intimate friends. Six rounds were
fought and then Leonard put his man
out with a clever right hand punch.
The preliminaries were all arranged
several days ago by Mr. Edison's
representatives and a purse of §300
subscribed, all of which was to go to
the winner. The fighters weighed in
at 130 pounds when they entered the
twelve foot ring, which had been
pitched within the focus of Mr. Edi
son’s last invention, the kinetograph,
which was to catch and preserve
every movement of the pugilists for
the purpose of reproducing them
later on.
Editor Brown in a Mother Hibbard.
Wichita, Kan., June 18.—At King
man last night when Editor Brown

tion, where he bitterly fought
woman's suffrage, was met at the
depot, taken from the side of his wife,
clothed in a mother hubbard dress
and sun-bonnet and compelled to
march through the streets before a
brass band. The friends of woman's j
suffrage did it.

HE lllflld II
lie Says That the Hill Has Deceived the
Approval of Kvcry Hoard of Trade in
the Country—Mr. Warner of Now
York, Delivers a Vigorous
Speech Against the Measure
— Bryan Speaks for It.
Washington, June 20.—A letter
from tlie speaker was read in tlie
house, announcing that on account of
sickness lie would be unable to attend
the session of tlie house yesterday
and appointed Mr. Hailey of Texas,
speaker pro tem. The deficiency bill
wras reported by Mr. Hrcclsinridge of
Kentucky. Mr. Sayers of Texas will
have control of the bill on’the floor of
the house. The deficiency bill carries
an appropriation of §1,8110,593.
Senate bill granting a right-of-way
to the Eastern Nebraska and (!ulf
railway through the Omaha and Win
nebago Indian reservations in tlie
state of Nebraska was passed.
The anti-option bill was then
launched upon its congressional voy
age. Mr. Hatch opened tlie debate
with a speech in favor of tlie bill. He
said there was not a single provision
in the hill which had not received tlie
approval of every body of trade in tlie
country, its charter or rules and regu
lations which required the actual de
livery of articles purchased for future
delivery. This bill would compel this
delivery honestly and in good faith
and would oblige the boards of trade
to enforce their own regulations,
which they had built up on elaborate
systems for avoiding.
When Mr. Hatch’s time had ex
pired, Mr. Warner, Democrat of New
York, delivered a vigorous speech
against the bill, in which he main
tained that while it was ostensibly
drawn in tlie interest of the farmer, a
careful reading showed that it “had
been monkeyed with by some one who
was a thousand times more a miller
than the gentleman from Missouri
was a farmer.” He maintained that
the passage of the bill would injure
the export trade of the country.which
was largely carried on by a system of
dealing in options.
Mr. Bryan of Nebraska considered
this a bill to prevent gambling in farm
products and it was unjust to his con
stituents (who were mainly farmers)
that other men should have the right
to affect the price of their product
after they had taken the risk of rain,
drought, grasshoppers and chinch
bugs. There was no difference be
tween the action of the burglar who
went to a man’s house and robbed him
of his goods, and the action of the
man who on stock exchange drove
down the price of another man's pro
duct and tints deprived him of so
much to which he was justly entitled.
At 5:08 o’clock Mr. Bryan concluded
his speech, and the house adjourned.
J. C. Thompson, the Absconding Cashier,
Is in Charge of a Railroad.
Sedalia, Mo., Jane 20.—By the ac
tion of the supreme court yesterday,
according to a telegram received here
from Jefferson City, J. C. Thompson,
the absconding cashier of the defunct
First National bank, is the receiver of
the Sedalia, Warsaw and Southwest
ern railroad.
Several months ago. on the petition
of Carlos S. Greely of St. Louis, and
other stockholders, Judge Richard
Field appointed Mr. Thompson re
ceiver of the road. The Missouri Pa
cific appealed to the supreme court
and yesterday the appeal was dis
missed, leaving the appointment
stand. Mr. Thompson is now sojourn
ing in Mexico, with no prospect of re
turning unless accompanied by a
United States officer. Judge Field, it
is expected, will at once appoint some
one else to the receivership.
Supreme Lodge Completes Its Work anti
San Francisco, June 20.—The su
preme lodge, A. O. U. W.. held a short
session yesterday morning and then
finally adjourned.
During the morning session it was
decided that a member’s stand
ing in the order should not be
considered to be imperilled by his
failure to pay assessments levied for
the benefit of any funds other than
the beneficiary, relief and general
funds. It was decided that no sus
pended or expelled member can be
taken back into the order unless he be
under 45 years of age. The newly
elected supreme officers were duly in
stalled by Past Supreme Master Work
men Baxter and W'ilson.

The Lanky Australian Almost Knocked
Out l>y Joe Choynski in Boston.
Boston, June ~0.—At the Boston
theater last night Bob Fitzsimmons,
champion middleweight of the world
and challenger of Jim Corbett, turned
an almost certain defeat into victory,
llad not the police interfered it was
ten to one that lie would have finished
Joe Choynski in a punch. As it was
the match was declared a draw, but
no one present will ever claim that
Choynski was a foeman worthy to
combat the, lanky Australian. No
less than ii.OOIl cheering, howling men
enjoyed the battle, the like of which
Boston has never seen before.
In the third round Choynski landed
on Fitz’s jaw full and square, felling
the Australian. He was on his back
nine seconds and got up just in time to
save himself, and was quite groggy,
but Choynski had lost iiis head with
wild leads which Fitz cleverly dodged.
Fitz rapidly recovered himself and
had Choynski at liis mercy and would
.have knocked him out in the liftli
round but for the police.

gaseous vapor as a motor for agri
cultural machinery, the tariff bill
came up. At the request of Mr.
Platt the two paragraphs, 293 and 299
of tlic sillc schedule passed over
Saturday were again passed over.
Schedule M—“pulp papers and
books’’—was taken up and Mr. Fryo
offered :■ protest against the tirst par
agraph of the schedule, placing a
duty of 10 per cent on mechanically
ground wood pulp and chemical wood
pulp, bleached and unbleached. The
production of wood pulp, he said, was
an enormous industry, employing 70,
000 men, turning out a product valued
at $35,000,000 and paying an annual
wage of 823,000,000. ‘Under the oper
ation of the present duty the cost of
paper had greatly decreased. Wood
pulp had decreased in price from
four and one-half cents per pound to
one and one-fourth in tiie last ten
years. It was produced in twenty
nine states, but principally in Maine
and New York. He appealed to the
other side to make the duty specific
instead of ad valorem and proposed
an amendment to substitute equiva
lent specific rates, say 82.50 per ton
on wood pulp mechanically ground,
chemical wood pulp unbleached 85 per
ton and bleached $G 50 per ton. The
Democratic members of the finance
committee refused to accept the
amendment and it was rejected—20
to 23.
The committee figures on the va
rious other articles in the pulp and.
paper paragraphs were adopted and
the senate took up schedule N—
sundries. The following rates were
fixed without debate: Hair, pencils
and feather dusters 30 per cent;
brooms 20 per cent; button forms 10j
per cent; agate buttons 20 per cent;
pearl and shell buttons one cent per
line and 15 percent; ivory, glass, bone
and horn buttons 35 per cent; -shoo
buttons 25 per cent.
The house hill placed coal on the
free list. The finance committee
amendment placed a duty of forty
cents per ton on bituminous coal and
shale, fifteen cents on slack and culm
and fifteen per cent advalorem on.
Coke. As soon as the clerk hail read
this paragraph Mr. Hill and Mr. I’ef
fer jumped to their feet. The New
York senator was recognized and sent,
to tlic clerk’s desk an amendment to
relegate bituminous coal and shale to
the free list. He made a speech in
support of free coal and the redemp
tion of Democratic pledges.
Mr. Hill said that lie reserved the
right to vote for or against the tariff
bill when he should see what it is as a
finality, passionately exclaiming:
“God knows what the bill will be liko
when it passes the senate and comes
out of conference. God knows how
many more extortions and conclusions
will be wrung from tlic unwilling
hands of the committee.”
The vote on Mr. Hill’s motion was
yeas 7, nays 51. Messrs. Allen, llans
brough. Hill, Irby, Kyle, J’cffer and
Washburn voted vea.
Another Detachment Capture* a Boat
and Goes Down the .IliaaoarL
Kansas City, Mo., June ID.—The
Coxey army encamped in the East
bottoms is fast going to pieces. About
fifty of them stole the fiat boat last
night which was g-iven to the army
Saturday. Before leaving- they
loaded the boat with nearly all the
provisions in camp and this morning
were many miles down the river.
The desertions of Saturday and Sun
day leave only seventy-five men in
camp, and it is almost certain that all
of these will be gone by to-night.
General Artz procured another flat
boat this morning- from a fisherman
which will hold fifty men. A rental
of 82 a day and all the fish the men
can catch is to be paid for the use of
the boat
