TALK oi' Anjofiix.Mi\r. ;
Tlio promptness with which tlio nnvnl np-
propunllon bill wns rushed thiough the
liouso to-day has set a good many neoplu to
thinking that peihaps the resolutions or
mljouinment July 8 may te.illv pass. The
leaders of thu house do not think so. how
ever. Morrison says lie thinks theie Is little
prospect of adjoin mncnt befoio the middle of
next month. " 1 do not seu how wo aio to
pet away befoio the middle of the month. ' '
ho snid. "There urea good many nppiomla-
tlon bills yet awaiting thu notion of the son-
nte , nnd theie Is llltlo probabllty Hint they
Will get them back to us In such time null
Bhnpo that adjournment can bo had beloru

"I don't believe there Is anythlni : in the 10-
port that Mr. Kandall intends Introducing n

one ot the most prominent members of the
committee on ways nnd means and a conii-
dentinl counsellor with Mr. Kandall , In con
versation with the Jtir.i : coiiesnondent to-
nlirht. "In the first place , " continued Major
MeKlnloy , "it would be Inconsistent after he
has just led a portion of his party to defeat
Morrison's bill , a'nd then he knows that It
would bo referred to the committee onwa.\s
and means , a majority of which aio ahcady
pledged ( o the Morrison bill , and would ie-
hiso to penult a measure from Kandall to bo

the middle of next month. "

WASHINGTON , Juno 21. The president has
scut congiess fifteen veto messages' , Thii-
teen ot the vetoed measures nro pihatoi > cn-
filon bills. The others provide t < r publlo
buildings nt Sioux City , lown , nnd Xancs-
vllle , Ohio , The messages have not yet been
laid befoio the houses of congiess ,
In vetoing the pension b'lls the president
says : "I am so thoroughly tlied of dtsap-
piovlng gifts of publlo money to Individuals

tlons held tor thu ex pi ess purpose of their

jority of the meinbeisof thotespoctlve houses
of the lrjUlatlvo branch of gourunii'iit , ) consldeiing these bills , Ihavu not felt
that I wasnldrd by tlia deliberate judgment
of cousins , and when 1 liavo deemed H my
duty to disprove many of thu bills picscnted
I hava baldly regiuded my action as distant
fiom the concluilona of the people's inpnv
.H. 1 have not been insensible to the
o.'i , which bhould IntUiencu any citi
zen , cither In private station or ofllclal plnco ,
to exhibit not only n jmt but n generous ap
preciation of the services of our country's
defenders. Hccdlcssnrss nnd disregard of
the principle which mulciHc * the granting
of pensions ts unfair to the wounded ,
crippled soldier who Is honored In
just recognition of his government.
Such a man should never find hlmolf side
by side on the pension mil with those who
have been tempted to ntlributc the natural
Ills to which humanity Is heir to service In
the army. " The president suirgests the signi
ficance of the shutting inwiso In pension
legislation nnil , io consequences involved In
Its continuance.
In his veto for the public buUdlng nt Sioux
City , the president says : "Tho icportoftho
committee of the house of leprcsentntlvps to
whom this bill was referred , states that by
thu census of isso the population of Sioux
Cil > wns nenily eight thousand , nnd that by
another enumeration since made its popula
tion would seem to exceed tweiily-threo
thousand. It Is further Mated In the report
that for tlio accommodation of
tills population the city contnlns 8JTJ
brick and vlbfl frnmo buildings. It seems to
me that In consideration of the merlin of this
bill the necessities of the government should
contiol thu question , nnd that It should bo
decided as a business proposition dependent
Upon thn needs of tlio government building
nt the point proposed In older to do the gov
ernment work. This creatly reduces the
value of the statistics showing the
population , extent of business , pios-
pcctlvc growth and matters of
that kind which , though exceedingly
Inti'iestlng , donot nlwavs demonstinto the
necessity of. thu uxpcndltuiool n Inwo sum
ot money for n publlo hulldinir. I find upon
examination that the United States comts
are some limes field at Sioux City , but that
they ha\u been thus far held In tlio county
coiutlumsu without seilous Inconvenience
nnd without nny expense to the gov
ernment. Tliuic nro actually no
other federal offices there for whom
the government should provide accommoda
tions except the postmaster. The postolllco
l.s now located In a building rented by the
government until the lint of January , 'lSb' .
at the rate of S V0 per annum. By the last
report of the supers isiug aichltect it appeals
that October 1 , IbS. ) , there wcro
eighty new public buildings In
coiiise of construction , and that thu nmount
expended thereon dining the preceding year
wns nearly Sil.GOO.OOO , while largu appropria
tions weio asked to be expended on these
buildings dining the curieiit year. In my
judgment the number of public bulldincs
should not nt this time bo Incio.ised unless a
greater public necessity exists thciofor than
Is appaicnt in this case.

WASHINGTON , Juno 21. Some time ago

ment to tlio becretnry of the treasury In re
gard to the Indebtedness of the Central and
Union Pacific railroad companies to the
United States under the provisions of the
Thurman act on account of moneys which
had been diverted from the earnings of those

company In the form of subsidy paid to that

pros ed the opinion that the ralhnad com-
pauius wuiu indebted to the United States

The Grent Trial
CnicAdo , June 31. [ Special Telegram to
the ! ) EK. ] An hour before the trial cf the
anarchists wan begun this morning the outer
door ot thu comt house was bcslecd by
crowds impelled tblllicr by various motives ,
from the unwilling juror , who came perforce ,
to the mote curiosity seeker , whoso object
was pastime. A sturdy policeman stood
guard with Jailor Call , and the crowd Was
subjected to n second piocussof filtration at
the court house door. Hy 10 o'clock , how
ever , n goodly company had assembled. A
little bcforu this hour nn unusual etlr wns
created by the entrance of nbotit n dozen
fashionably nttlred Indies , who came in amid
quite a buzz of animated speculation. They
were accommodated with seats upon the
bench. Judge Gary soon aftci waul appealed
in their midst , nnd havint , ' thst looked to
their comfort , took up bis position with a
solemn nlr In the midst of his tnlr but novel
The minder indictment , which will flist
bo put before the iury , is No. 1,183 on the
calendar nnd c"mprUo * nine names. They
me August Spies , Michael Schwab , Samuel
Fleldcn , Albeit 11 , Parsons , Adolph Fisher ,
George Engel , Louis Ijingg , William Sollcor ,
Udolph Sclinnubelt and Oscar W. Nccbe.
This Indictment Is for tlio muidcr of Odlccr
Mntthlus Uegan at the Iluymaiket ilot , on
the now hlstoilc night of May 4. Whether ,
when this case Is disposed of , the prisoners
can bo separately arraigned nnd tried tor the
minder ot each of the other six oMlccrs and
the two citizens who received their death
wounds on that ntht , Is n question on which
there Is considerable difference ot opinion
among lawyers. They aio all , however , in
dicted on eight distinct charges of murder.
At 12HO the court bailiff marched In at the
head of thu six anarchists , who trooped in n
long line into court nnd took up
positions dhcctly under the bench.
Seligur was absent , nnd it was then
ascertained for the fhst" time with
certainty that ho is about to have his neck by
squealing on his pals and giving evidence tor
the state. Spies , looking as neat and spiuco
as ever , came first , lie was nltiicd as usual ,
in a suit of blue serge. His hair wns care
lessly blushed back from his loiehead , and as
ho took his seat ho commenced to lead the
newspaper , with an nlr of the utmost indlt-
leieneo. Schwab , looking mean nnd despica
ble , ns usual , came next. Ills sallow visage
was blaiHied to an ashy hue , and his weak
knees knocked together as he looked over
the rims of his spectacles for his first view of
the tribunal bofoio which he Is to be tried for
his life. Sum Flelden , square-Jawed , beetle-
brewed and savage looking , stumped on stur
dily next in lotation.
The sensation of the day came at 2:30 :
o'clock this afternoon. At that hour n han
som cab drove up to the Michigan btiect ddor
ol the criminal court building. The driver
pulled up nls horse with n jerk , and an in
stant later two men leaped out and w Ith hur
ried steps entered the building. One of the
men was Captain Black , counsel for the an-
arclilsts. The other was unknown to
those who .stood about the corri
dors. Up stalw the two men wont
arm in urm anu nt tlio top of their speed.
They pushed their way through the orowd
which hung about thu dourot Judge Gary's
room and elbowtd their way thiough the
Huong inside. When they stood In f runt ot
the Judge Captain Blacks companion was
"Uio it heavens , its Parsons ! " exclaimed a
police olllcar.
And so It was. The long-looked for and ,
eagerly sought alter anaiclilbt hud returned ,
ami of his own accord. Tlie man who for
years had u reached annihilation to the listen
ing crowds on the lake front and advised
mob violence just before the lalal bomb was
thrown at the llaymarkot , stood bcfoie thu
eomt. Every neck was btrethed toiwaul
and every eye strained to catch a sight of
him. Captain Black asked that ho bo tried
with the others , and the cxcltmeut began to
calm down.
Last Satuiday Captain Black -had a consul
tation with Mr.I'm sons. He uigcd her. if
she know vliero her husband was , to com
munlcato with him at once nnd get him to
come to Chicago lor trial , Thu woman ic-
lused at first , but finally became convinced
it was the b2st thing to do. Captain
Blac'c ' introduced him to the court
ns ono of the defendants In the
cnso at the bar , nnd nskcd that ho bo nr-
mlgued. Not a word of explanation wns
vouchsafed , nor was thoio any attempt by the
police olUeem piesont to interfere. Wheio
lie came liom , or whuro ho had spent the
time lie has been so sadly missed was not
known. No onu vuntured to inquire while
the mlsoncr was being airaigned. 1'aiuons
looked as ho alwa.\s lias since Chlcagoans
have known him thin and weakened , lie
was dressed in a quiet suit of blua. The only
evidence ot nervousness in his manner was
that he kept his aim In that of his lawyer un
til the latter withdicw It. He was led to
where the other prisoners weru sitting nnd
where the detendnnts' counsel had lotauied a
seat for him. It wns a carelu'ly arranged
surprise , dramntU ally can led out.
' I'arsons , " said Lawyer Black , "has not at
any tlmo been q\or a hundred miles fiom the
city , yet all the two hundred ollicers looking
lor him would never haveuneaithcd him. lln
was not biought forward bufoiu simply be
cause thu methods of the Chicago police aio
brutal and uttuily above and icgaidloss of
law. I propose to hnvo my client treated le
gally , nnil not bullyragged and tortured an
pilsoneis uro not even in Russia. "
The first formal muvu in connection with the
trial of thu anarchists was reading the list ot
Jurymen announced to attend in comt which
occurred Immediately alter the court opened.
The state's attorney announced that ho was
ready to proceed with thu cnsea ot the cnnrnh-
Ists charged with the mm dor of OAleerDcgnn.
Tim defendants , Michael Schwab. Samuel
Fielden , Adolph Fischer , Geo. Kngle , Louis
Llngg and Oscar Necbo , were then brought in.
When the court concluded hoailng tlio
pleas of the Jurors to bo e.xcused liom serving
on thu panel , Captain Black , as counsel for
the accused , nsUod leave to withdraw the pica
of "not guilty , " mid at once entered n
motion to quash the Indictments which
was argued at some length. Thu court at
once o\ei ruled the motion. Defense then
made a motion for a separate tiial for each
of the accused for reasons cited in the peti
tion heietoforo telegraphed. Tha comt ex-
piesscd the view that the inteicsts
of none of the detendants would bo
Jeopardised. Ho overruled the motion and
dlieeted thn tiial to proceed. The defense
tuejj rqnowcd the plea of "not guilty , " and
the woik of obtaining n Jury was at once pro
ceeded with.
When the court adjourned at noon the
state had accepted four Jiuors , but In thu
aftcinoou they were excused by the defense ,
and later they took up the task of Jlndlng
four men acceptable to them. When court
adjourned at 5 o'clock two men were on the
Canel , who had not been formally accepted
y the dofonsa , however , so that the first
day closed without any actual progress hav
ing been madu toward obtaining u panel.

BOSTON , June 21. Tlio Now England In
stitute fair buildings orl lluntlncton avenue ,
recently pin chased by the Metropolitan
Horse railway company , valued nt Si" > 0.00) ,
burned , nnd four workmen were kilted. The
building Is supposed to bo fully Insured.
The flames refused to surrender until they
had conquered cvcrvthlnswmbu'itlblo within
the building , nnd the work of rescue wns nt-
tended with Rreal danger. The charred to *
mains of two men wcro brought out. and are
thought to bo those of William Taylor nnd a
man named Frost , both carpenters. It Is be
lieved that other bodies are burled In the
debris , n-s several workmen nro missing. All
Is confusion , and no conect statement of the
lost ot life can j ut be made.
After the flames had been sunlclcntly ex
tinguished search wns begun nmong the
charred remains for posMblolctlms , nnd tin
to 9 p. m. eight bodies hnd been removed ,
most of them burned beyond recognition. It
Is believed that there nre nt least four more
bodies in the ruins. The total loss Is about
forty thousand dollars.
There weio several hcart-iending Incidents.
A man whoscnamo Is as yet unknown wns
driven out of n window of the second story
by tlio llnincs. Ho wns about to leap and hnd
put one lee over the window pill , when the
loof fell In nnd pinned him fnst to the spot
w here ho wns. No ladder company had nr-
rived , nnd the crowd outside were powerless
to icndei aid. The Hames followed almost
Instantly and the Imprisoned man underwent
nitoiil7ing torture before the lion Illcd eyes 01
his friends below. Two of his fellow work
men John McNulty nnd J. F. Fnllcn were
terribly burned whllo trying to s-calc
the wall to roach tlmlr dying
comrade. His sufferings weio merci
fully short. The awful tnrnaco of llntuc
snon wrapped him nbout with lire nnd smoke ,
hiding him during his last moments from
the gnre of the spcctntors. Not long after-
wauls the wall gave way and nothliiK more
was seen. E. 1. Fallen says he wns the last
man to leave the wooden workshop alive.
