Mr. Wllbon , of lov.a , olfeied a resolution

nnd Mich messages as may bo deemed of gen- public Interest of the several presidents
ot the United States bo nnanged In chron
ological order and pi Intcd as n senate docu

lllL' .
Mr. Allison submitted n confeienco leport
on the legislative nppioiulatlon bill , tlio
committee ngieclng upon all points of dis
pute between the two houses , except as to
the following points : Clerks for senators
( notchaliinen otcommlttees ) ; salary uf tlio as
sistant treasurer nt Haltlmoie ; appiopilatlon
foi three rleika for the civil servile commis
sion , and lehitlng to tlio compensation ot
Internal revenue accnts , survoiors , etc. The
senate still further insisted on its dlsagtce-
mrnt with the house on these points.
Tlio senate icsumcd the consideration of
the rhcrand li.tiuor nupropriatlon bill the
nmcndmcnt adopted us In the commltlco of
the whole , being the lirst to Do disposed of.
Tlio lir t point on which them wns division
on the amendment ( oflcicd originally by Mr.
In falls ) to Items for the Mississippi liver
piovldlngapottion of the nnpropi ration for
rlinn Point and Lake 1'iovldenco leaches bo
confined to complete repair and maintenance
of levees throughout sueh roaches to the
height of tv\o feet nbovo the Hood of 18bJ ,
ana to tlio completion of permeable woiks ol
consumption , Tlio amendment was adopted.
The next question wts the amendment
( originally ollered by Mr. lluirisoii ) to the
fame item , to add to the proviso autHori/lnu
tlie commission to lepair , 01 build a line , it
necessary to the navigation and commerce of
thei is ei , tlio w oids "out not below the i caches
\ > hieli aio being improved by them , miles * It
shall bu necessary In older to pie\ cut or close
an injinioiisciovasse or outlet. "
Mr. ( ilbson argued against tlie amendment
as an insidious attack upon and attempts to
condemn the Mississippi river commission.
Mi. llanison advocated the amendment
and said the Intention \\os to piescnttlio
question vthothci the senate would author
ize the Mississippi commission to enter upon
the goneial system ot leveeini : the Missis
sippi tiom its mouth to Cairo. Tending the
decision ot tills question the hoiibo joint tos-
olutlon oxtendlni' tlio temporary piovlaoon
foi expeiibcs ot the goveinment to July 31
was picscntud to thu senate nnd passed. Mi.
llariibon's amendment was then uzreed to.
The amendment , otlered by Mr. Hale , stiik-
iug out bectlon 2 , which legislated against
dumping refuse matter in harbors , rivcis or
tribulaty watei.s , next came up. Instead of
the suction blriickouttheie had been insetted ,
on motion of Mr. Conger , a pioviblon author
izing the bccietaiy of war to establbh haibor
lines nnd establish lines where deposits ot
( lull ] is ot mines or stamp work can be made
without injury to navigation. The question
wns on striking out and insciting. It was
agreed to. Amendments striking out sec
tions ! i1,5 i , 0 , Taiid llvvoroallagmed to. All
umendments acieed to by the senate in com
mittee of the whole having berjn disposed of
the whole bill was open to amendment ,
Mr. Teller , retelling to hisvotoon Mr Gib
son's motion to suiko out Mr. Harrison's
amendment lo the Mississippi river boctlon ,
said ho learned from Mr. liiown that he un
derstood paired ou tliosorjuestlons.
Ho theiofoio moved to reconsider the vote
by which that motion to .strike out wns 10-
jected by a tie vote , Mr. Teller having voted
In the negative. The vole was leoonsidered
and the matter again eamo up for action.
( Juestlon was then taken on Mr. Gibson's
motion to btrlko out Mr. Harilson's amend
ment and was ngiced to Yeas , 27 ; nays , SJO.
Mi. Logan moved lo increase tlio nupro-
priation for the Illinois liver from 5100,000
to 8150,000. Adopted.
Mr. McMillan , chaiimnn of the committee
pn commcicc , moved to btiiko out nil alter
Ilic enacting clause in the bill , except that in
each case the amount bo icduced pet cent.
Ho expressed that the house bill , lit round
numbcra , was gl'5,000,000 , the amount re-
poitedby the committee on commerce S18-
UCO,000. tlio amouutagieed to by the senate In
committee of the whole 000,030 more and the
amount under the pioposeds.'i per cent re-
auction will bo 14,000,000. An extended dis
cussion followed.
Mr. McMillan said ho submitted his substi
tute by direction of tlio committee on com
merce and ho nnd the other mcmboisof the
committee , during the 'discussion which fol
lowed , explained that they , personally , and a
majority ot the committee , favored the bill as
it stood , but were constrained to recommend
a reduction In the belief that If nuy river nnd
haihor bills wcio to bu had the reduction
mubt bo made , and that so iar ns the senate
was concetned , It would doubtless pass the
Mr. Edmunds thought the proposed reduc
tion was wise. It would bo better to make a
reduction of 50 per cent.
Mr. Miller said Mr. Kiistls wanted to hwcll
the bill through with hostility to tlio adminis
tration In order to force a veto. It was an
open secret , he said , that airaugoments were
being made In nnothoi body to buiy the bill
provided ccitnln things weio done , or pro
vided tlio amounts wcto increased bovond a
certain point. Them had nlso been floating
about thu coitldois of the capltol , In thu cloak
looms nud on thu Moor of the senate , state
ments made and rcpoated day after day by
men who represented the executive , by men
who stood close to it , tvho did not he.sitatoto
say ( not \\hl.spnis. . but outspoken words ) ,
"If this bill exceeded a certain point It would
undoubtedly meet the executive veto.
Mr. Salisbury asked Mi. Miller whether ho
had any Information from the niesidiMit or
any poisons Intimately connected with the
president that ho Intended to vuto the bill. It
was nut tight for the senator to chargotho
president \\lth nn attempt to inlliionco the
action of the senate , because no president had
ever been moioc.uoful In that lespcct than
the piobont executive.
Mr.Miller replied that ho made no such
ehaige. Ho had no Information whatever on
thu subject. Ho merely stated w lint the men
w ho stood before the country ab the leadois
of thn administration rmi ty .stated tor \ \ eeks
nnd weeks. If the bill oweded a ceitnin
sum It would undoubtedly bo vetoed.
Thodlseusblon was continued bv Messrs
Ittddlcbeiger , Call and Humh. The latter
ciltlcizcd tlio committee on commeico and
tetorrcd to the minors of a presidential veto
as something which came under the ground
by thobowerago system between thu vvnito
house and cauitol.
Mr. Congei , a member of the committee on
commerce , icbontod thoicferencesto his com
mittee a dcharactcil/ed them as "Insidious
attacks upon thu committee. " All
thiough thu bpecch lie said nn attack had
been niudo on the motives , sincerity ,
honesty and honor of thu committee.
At the close of Conger's speech , which was
eeitalnly bitter tluoughont , the senate , with
out coming to a vote , adjourned.

Nothing can bo learned at the state dcpail-

Coiigiessman Majbtnj nnd ox-Supcrintend-
ent of 1'olico Conley , ot Dctiolt , called upon
the secretary of state and set forth that ow-
imr to the small list of extiaditnblo crimes
embiaced in tlio existing treaty , the bolder
towns of the two conntiles were over inn by
cilminals. Secretary Fielinghuysen told a
correspondent subsequently that negotiations
were pendinir that would piobably result in a
tioaty which would make It Impossible tor
thu malfactors to escape the penalties for
their crimes by crossing the Canadian border.
These negotiations were not cut slioit by a
change ot administration , but have been con
tinued by Mr. 1'helps at the court of St.
James. An attucho ot the British legation
heio bald this moinlng that he knew the
Canadian people had urced the homo govern
ment to take the necessary stops to secure n
wider scope for tlio extradition treaty , and ho
lidded that negotiations loojclng to this end
have been pending lor some tlmo. He was
unable to say w hat result had been reached.
Mr. Bellmont , chaliman of the house com
mittee on foreign atlnhs , said to-day : "I

Senator Van vVjelc to-day proposed nn
amendment to the biindry civil appioptlatlon
bill , giving 8.VX ) for Improvements in the way
ot a fountain , walks , etc. , at the government
building at Lincoln.
Tliero Is a tear , which Is paitakcn ot
by democrats , as well as tepubllcans , that the
president will yet exuiclsn his veto power In
a way that will make gicat Inconvenience
and much cmbairassmont. Somutlmo ago
Mr. Cleveland warned conutcbb against
banking up on him n Inigo number of bulky
bills with the expectation that he will sign
them without leading them , simply to laclll-
late nil Join n men t. Ho announced that ho
would sign no bill without reading and un-
dciKtandmg It. and knowing the needs tor
It. Ablll wasicceutly defeated which gave
tlio president authority to veto a paragraph
or section , or any portion of an appropiTation
bill while approving of the remainder of It.
Tlio defeat of tlio mcasuru was , to nso tlio
phraseology of an old member , "to keep the
president from becoming too technical , too
meddlesome , and at the same tlmo too dis
respectful with and to congress. "
The icmilt Is that If a clause , a nlnaso , or n
parnirrnph in nn nppropilation bill Is object-
fonablu to the piusldent , and ho retuses to
subscribe to It , ho will have to veto the whole
measure , Thus , If 310 Is appropriated to a
man or purpose which the mesldent believes
to bo unnccoDbury nnd which liu dislikes , the
whole hilt , piobably approptKiting S20uOO-

to congress within an hour of tlio tlmo llxed

for saying that Secietnry Manning

Prosecution Opened.
CmrAoo. July 15. [ Special Telegram to
the BJE.J Thcio were but clehteen peremp
tory challenges remaining for the defense
when the woik of seeming n jury for the
dial of the anatchlsts was resumed this
morning. These wcro quickly exhausted.
K. B. Sandford. nged about twenty-four
years , wns the last talesman called. He said
he hud formed a decided opinion on the
question ot guilt or innorcneo of the ac
cused , but noveitheless ho thought he could
give them a fair ti ial. He answered satisfac
torily all tlio questions put to him , and then
Mr. Foster , for thodcfchso , after consultation
with his associates , said ho would challenge
the juror for cause on tlio grounds that ho
had formed an opinion. The coin t overruled
the challenge nid ) at the afternoon session
States Attorney GilnneU announced that tlio
piosccutlon h.ul concludded to accept Mr.
Sandford ns the twelfth juryman. This
completed the panel , nud the final four
were told to stand up nnd reccivo the oath.
Theic was a general teellng ot relief when
It was icallzcd that Inn long nnd labor-
oils task ol scouring a jury was nt length
ended. After n few mmutos consultation ,
State's Attorney Grinnell at ouco began his
opening addiess to the juty on behalf of the
people. Tlie State's Attoiney. ns ho began
his address , had n big map of the scene ot the
Hnymaikct outracc can led In nnd placed
before the sworn twolvo. Ho asked the jur >
to sit In judgment dispassionately and bu
guided wholly by the evidence tlmt would bo
adduced before them. The institutions of
this country , he said , nnd IMCII trampled
under footund belittled bi the conduct of
such men ns puicticcd in the Hamaiket
mooting of May . The cltl/cns of this coun
try believe In the institutions of the countiy
and believe that these Institutions aio above
cavil and have been .since the Declaration ot
Independence. But our citizens , with their
Ideanof llbeity , have bi'cn piono to put too
much confidence In sttangers who arc ene
mies of the government. Gilnncll continued
by saying that he will show lu the testimony
that August Spies , onoot the defendcts , had
repeatedly called on the Inboilng men to aim
themselves with iltles and itvnaiulte and
tileati out the police.
After de ctfblug the featmcs of the plot to
blowup the police station simultaneously
nnd snck the city the state's attorney bald in
conclusion : " 1 will attempt to show you who
throw the bomb , nnd not n single conspirator
will bo placed upon thb stand whom we will
not c.orroboiate by witnesses. " When the
state's atlo'rnoy ceased the attotnoys for the
defense said they would make no statement
for their sldo until the evidence was all In ,
To-morrow the examination of witnesses
will begin.

nglno how ho was drawn into this Pan-Electiic
matter. 1 do not think that he had any ap
preciation of fact that the speculation was one
of millions. I urn Inclined to think rather ho
thought ho was pelting a fewhundreaddollai.s
worth of stock for Ids legal services , and that
it was only n modest Arkansas fee that was
given. I can rcmembci how it was with the
great Ciodlt Moblllcr affair. There wcro men
who saw their associates making money nnd
they thought they could moke some too. It
Was ti pitable sight in some cases. "
In f nitlier conversation , Schnrz expressed
the opinion that Manning's dopartmo was
most untottupnto In the cnreer ot the ndmln-

Tor nearly twenty years a woman who

Hint lior existence has been unknown ot-
cept to tlio parties witli whom

In 18UU the woman , then a Miss Fioreo ,
young and comparatively handsome , was
married to an Omaha carpenter , an old-
crly man named Doran , who was a
widower with ono son , Iternhard Dornn-
ten a joung ninn about twenty years of
ago. Soon after the marriage an inti.
iniicy was alleged to have sprung UP be
tween Mrs. Uoran and her handsome ,
step-son , resulting in a tragedy whleli
cost onu man his hfo and ruined the
Dor.xn lamily. The old man Doran , con
vinced of his wife's faithlessness , secured
u warrant fiom Justice of the IVnco
Graham for his son's arrest on the charge
of adultery. Tlio warrant was placed in
the hands ot Jerry MeSlinuo , n constable ,
who was M'tit to ai rest voung Dor.iu. lie

bnd. Ho called tor MeShaiie's protection -
tion , which was not forthcoming , and ho
turned to defend liiin.selt. Ho drew a
Spanish dirk and commenced to make
desperate lunges at the tlueo num. Poor
McSliauo vvns tirst caught nnil the knife
plunged entirely through his hond. Ho

day. Muluahoy was stabbed novoral
times in the back and came near
dying Doran then escaped und was
a fugitive lor several days but was finally
captured by Captain baundeis and a
posse of men. Mob violence was pre
vented anil a fair trial secured for Doran.
