FREIGHT RATES TO BE RESTORED.
Ob May 22 the Western Association Roads
Will Return to the Old Rate.
Chicago, May 15. The lines in the
Western Freight association have made
up their minds that freight rates from
Chicago to the Missouri river and from
the Missouri river to Chicago are much
too low and must go up. The presidents
of the lines in the association met Mon
day at the office of Chairman Midgely
and decided that on May 22 all freight
rates west of Chicago, both east and west
bound, should le returned to the sched
ule in effect on May 1. This includes
Colorado business as well as all other
business in the territory of the associa
tion. The roads represented at the meet
ing announce they intend to hold to
these rates no matter what lines outside
the association may see fit to do.
A telegram announcing the action
taken at the meeting was sent to George
Gould of the Missouri Pacific and Presi
dent Reinhart of the Atchison asking
to co-operate with the association lines.
The rates wluch will go into effect May

NO DECISION REACHED.
Republican Senators Unable to
Agree on a Line of Action.
HOLD AH DTTOBMAL CONFERENCE.
About Twenty Speeches Made, but Each
Senator Advised a Different Manner of
Proceeding: Committee Investigating
Armor Plate TJuion Pacific Reorganiza
tion Sill Introduced In the House.
1 Washington, May 15. The Republic
an members of the senate were in caucus
at Senator Sherman's residence from 8
o'clock until 11:30 Monday night. The
caucus partook more of the nature of an
informal conference than a business
meeting, and while it was called with
the purpose of arriving at a conclusion
as to the method to be pursued by the
Republican party in the senate, it closed
without eliciting anything in the way of
a party declaration. There was no vote
on any proposition whatever, and the
proceedings consisted of a large number
There were about 25 of the 37 Repub
lican senators present and everyone had
something to say in the course of the
evening. There was great divergence in
views. Of course, the accounts of the
meeting agree that while there were
probably 20 speeches, most of them of
course brief, no two of them were on the
same line, or advised the same manner
There was no agreement except upon
the one point, that the bill should be
beaten if possible. On general lines the
greetest divergence of opinion was on the
ability of the Republicans to beat the bill
at all, and while there was no formal
division which would permit of counting,
the caucus appeared to le alnmt evenly
divided in sentiment on this question.
A statement that eastern senators were
favorable to a continuance of the opposi
tion on the lines which are now being
observed and that western senators are
opposed to any effort to secure delay, for
delay's sake, would be in a general way
correct, but there were exceptions on
Contend the Dill Could De Defeated.
Senators Aldrich. Chandler and Frye
and others contended that the bill could
be defeated, and said all that was neces
sary to demonstrate the correctness of
this assertion was to give the Democrats
time to widen the breach, which they as
serted now exists. Some of them declare
four or five Democratic votes could be
counted on as opposed to the bill, while
one of those present went so far as to say
he was assured of the opposition of at
least seven Democrats. No names of
Democratic senators were given, how
ever. The opposition element contended
there was no positive assurance of any
Democratic support in opposition to the
bill and that the only means of testing
the truth of the rumors of Democratic
dissatisfaction was to let the voting goon.
There was much talk as the general
dennits and inconsistences of the bill
and some of the silver senators did not
fail to call attention to the lack of sym
pathy which had leen displa3'ed by the
Republicans when the silver repeal was
up last fall and to intimate they had no
desire at this time to heap coals of fire
on the heads of that element in the party
at this time by doing kindness in return
for what they termed inconsideration.
There was also an exchange of views
on the poli of the Republicans voting
for the Democratic amendments to the
bill, but the only agreement reached up
on this point was to allow for the pres
ent individual Republican senators to
act in accordance with their own incli
nations. MUST PAY THE FULL AMOUNT.
Settlement Made by a .Sealing Company
With Windom anil Foster Is Illegal.
Washington, May 15. Attorney Gen
eral Olney has rendered an opinion in
which he holds the settlement made by
Secretaries Windom and Foster with the
North American Commercial company,
by which the government for the years
1890, 1K91 and 1892 received a less rental
both as to the tonus and the rental per
skin than was originally agreed upon,
was illegal and therefore is not binding
upon the present secretary. This re
duced rental and tax was accepted be
cause the company had not been per
mitted to take the full number of skins
ordinarily specified in the lease as a
limit. In vfew of this decision the sec
retary has made a formal demand upon
the company for the full amount of rent
per skin and tax for the year 1S9; and
has referred to the attorney general for
such action as he may deem advisable in
the matter of collecting from the com
pany the full amount due for the pre
vious years. The whole amount claimed
to be due the government is alxmt 320,
000 of which 132,000 is on account of
the S893 catch.

CAPTURED PINKHAM'S TRAIN.
Commonirealers Kmh Upon the Marshal
and His Deputies and Overpower Them.
Green River, Wy., May 15. When
Marshal Pinkhain of Idaho started to
board his train to go to Cokeville for the
cqmmonwealers arrested there, 200 of
the commonwealers rushed upon him
and his deputies and took the train from
them. Marshal Rankin, who was at
Cokeville, upon being informed of this
started for Cheyenne and when near
Cokeville, dropped the men wanted by
Marshal Pinkham. The commonweal
ers who took Pinkham's train are now
coming eaBt. Troops have been called
for and the entire army will be arrested.
The greatest excitement prevailed at
Montpeilier, many of the citizens sym
pathizing with the commonwealers,
among them Constable Dick Williams,
who was arrested. The commonwealers
attempted to release him. but were
cowed by three dozen Winchesters in
the hands of deputies. A public meeting
of the citizens was held to confer with
the opposing forces, but the marshals
could do nothing, as their duty was im
perative. TROOPS TO ASSIST THE MARSHALS.
Commanders In the Northwest Instructed
to Arrest Industrial Armies.
Washington, May 15. Reports of a
disquieting nature were received Mon
day by Attorney General Olney respect
ing the lawless acts of various "armies"
of Coxeyites in the west in seizing trains
and interfering with the mails. The
attorney general consulted the secretary
of war and it was decided to adhere to
the line of policy pursued the last week.
While general instructions had been sent
to the military commanders in the
troubled districts to give all lawful and
necessary assistance to the officers of the
United States courts in repressing these
outrages, it was felt proper to send
specific instructions to General Otis at
Vancouver barracks and to General
Brooke, commanding the department of
the Platte, to take active steps to hold
off the marauders in their districts, act
ing, of course, as auxiliary to the United
Request For Troops Denied.
Muskogee. I. T., May 15. President
Cleveland has determined that inasmuch

soldiers can be furnished only at the re
quest of the court. It is rumored here
that several hundred miners are on their
way from Lehigh to compel the miners
at Hartshoue to suspend. It looks more
like trouble each day.

BTBOJKx RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED.
Senatot Dlackbnru Asked to Come Dome
and jeak Asaiust the Silver Tongued
Congressman Women of Lexington Pro
test Against His Denomination Believe
It Would Be a Disgrace to Kentucky.
Lexington, Ky., May 15. The be3t
people of Lexington and Fayette county,
including several hundred -ladies, turned
out Monday to the anti-Breckiuridge
meeting at the opera house. The meet
ing, from a standpoint of morality, was
a tremendous success. The opera house
was filled and 5'tO people were
turned away. Professor J. W. McGar
vey, an eminent minister of the Christian
church, wa3 the first speaker, and he
showed Colonel Breckinridge up in no
favorable light. Ho held that it would
be a disgrace to th.3 district, to the state
and to the country io return such a man
to congress, ami closed his speech by a
strong appeal to the young men to vote
The other peaker was Judge M. J.
Durham, who denied Colonel Breckin
ridge was the only man in the district
who can represent it in congress. The
speeches were loth well received and
made a good impression.
The Audiencs Went Wild.
Resolutions were adopted denouncing
Brecldnridge's morals and calling on the
good people of the district to rise up in
their might and vote against the
tongued persuader. But when Henry
C. Clay got up and offered a resolution
not only denouncing his morals,but asking
that Senator J. S. Blackburn be asked to
obtain leave of absence from the senate
and come home and from tho rostrum
speak against Breckinridge, the audi -
ence went wild. The cheering was deaf -
ening. and it was plain to anv observer
that the Breckinridge Ixhmu started bv
the silver-tougtied orator himself a little
more than a week ago was badly
strained, if not broken.
The following are the resolutions
adopted by the women:

TELLER NOT HOPEFUL.

Present Industrial Depression.
Pueblo, May 15. Senator Teller, in a
letter to a citizen of this city, expresses
sympathy for the Coxey army now in
Washington anil declares the arrest and
trial of Coxey, Browne and Jones was a
a farce, and concludes as follows:
"It is difficult to know what to do
with these people, who are here in dis
tress through no fault of theirs. They
know that there is something wrong
somewhere and that there ought to le a
remedy, aud can think of no other ex
cept what congress can give. I myself
believe the present dreadful condition of
our laboring and producing people is the
direct and immediate result of bad legis
lation already on our statute books, and
other that is threatened, but 1 have no
hope of immediate legislation that will
give the rtquired relief. What will
happen in the near future. I cannot see
and believe for my peace of mind it is
well I cannot."
