To day 1 made diligent Inquiry and Invest !
gallon to ascertain If there was any founda
tlon for the widely published assertion thai
behind the direct tax bill , which Is makiiif
tlio deadlock in the house , there Is a horde ol
atato agents , lawyers and lobbyists , and thai
thcsu men get a very luceo slice of the pro
posed ? 17OCO,000 appropriation. There l !
but an atom of truth In It nil. It is true tha
there nro some agents who get a small per
ccntago of the money , but by the most care
fill Inquiry among the members from UK
various stales , and the use of the telograpl
In communicating with the govcmors , It ii
ascertained that but live agents are paid i
per cent , out of the money which will g <
to the states by this bill , nud that the paj i :
from two to three per cent In these live in
Btnnccs , instead of from twenty to fifty , u
reported by the lllllbusters.
General Hclknap gets II per cent of thi
amount which will go to Iowa , and not 25 pc
cent as published by the illllbustors. Gc'n
oral Farnsworth , the agent for the state o
Now York , Is kept In Washington the i ca
round , and gets f2JO n month. Ho Is paii
nothing extra out of the direct tax bill. Kan
BUS has no contract with its state agent , nm
neither bus Virginia , Pennsylvania , Missouri
Indiana , Massachusetts , Mulno nor Michl
gnu Ohio has an agent who receives 5 pc
cent of the collections ho makes for the stut
against the government , but months ago th <
governor informed him ( Colonel W. T. Tal
ford ) that his contract only Included th
claims which were collected through the dc
partmonts , and that nothing would como t
him by the passage of the dircc
tax bill. Kentucky , a few j curs ago , con
tractcd to pay 60 per cent for the collcctio ;
of war claims , but Governor Knott refusci
to appoint an agent , and thus the state wil
give nothing to an agent out of what ho uia ,
get through the direct tax bill.
A great deal has been said about th
amount it is alleged will go to the agent fo
South Cmolinn. It was stated by the one
mles of tbo bill thnt one-half of the ninouti
which is provided for South Carolina will b
paid to agents. This Is untrue. The mono ,
which will go to South Carolina will bo dls
tributed dhectly to the Individuals who paii
it. There was oneo a contract made b
these individuals by which an agent was t
receive per cent for collection. In this cor
nection there is a bit of interesting hlstoij
While the bill was before tbo senate rt
ccntly Senator Butler of South Cuiolin
urged the adoption of an amendment piovii
ing that none of the money w hich the mcui
uro appropriates shall bo paid by any ono t
agents. It is stated upon the best of nuthoi
ity that Asblbtant Sccietary of the Tie.isur
Thompson , while governor of South Can
Una , wus applied to by Senator Hutler1
brother for the btato agency for the collei
tlon of claims nmnw.t the government , ii
eluding that piovidcd for by tlio diicct ta
bill. Governor Thompson icfuscd to a |
point Senator Hntler's brother and appointe
Trescott & Eurlc , claim agents , now locatei
In this city. What Senatoi IJutlcr's idcu wo
under the clrctimstnifi es in urging thi
amendment can only bo conjectured.

enumerated h wo agents who are in any wa ;

It is evident that the charge that theio nr

subterfuge of the ex confederates for votln

of the navy on the difficulty with Moroccc
After stating the general situation as nlrcad
published , the commander says , while ho hn
no dcslro to pass upon the question of th
equity of the protection system involved I
the dispute , ho is of the opinion that th
rights of the United States are very clcn
under the ti catics , and that they should b
upheld so long as the provisions of th
treaties are not modified. While tlio Mooris
oQlcials should not bo held to the stiictcst ni
countabibty for violation of convention :
rules adopted by moio highly civilbc
nations , It Is well to understand thnt tli
oiiental character is quick to take advantug
of the meaning of such rules and to accept : i
light a point which might occasionally Ii
yielded. Consul Lewis has , McC.illa say
in the interest of concilliution and fioi
tbo highest motives , yielded t
times when ho was clearly .sui
ported by existing treaties and migl
with propriety huvo insisted upon the light
they accorded. These same rights , It woul
appear , very often have not been questione
when the piotcgesof any other nation buv
been under consideration. "In sboit , " tli
commander sajB , "tho rights of the Unite
States have been denied us , while the sain
rights under the same conventions have bee
fi cely accoulcd to other powet's rcpi cscnted.
Ho sajs tlio United States government is i

WAinixcvrov , April 10. Among the petl-
lens and memorials rrcscntcd and referred
vas one for amendments to the Intcr-stnto
commerce bill , so ns to make it apply to the
transportation of oil by pipelines. .
On motion of Mr. Wilson of Iowa the bill
rcgulntlng the times for holding the terms of
, ho United States circuit and district courts
for the northwestern district of Iowa was
insscd.
The senate rcsurried the consideration of
lie bill to authorise' ' the sale to aliens of cer
tain mineral lands , Faulkner's amendment
was rejected. After much discussion the
> hrascology of the bill was amended and the
jill passed Yens 81 , n j 13. It reads as
follows : That the act entitled "An act to
restrict the owners of real estate In the tcr-
rltoi ics to American cltlrens , " etc , approved

any way or manner affect title to mlncud
lands or mining claims In the teriltones of
the United States , which may bo acquired
or hold under the mineral land laws of the
United States , nor to mills or other rcduu-
tlou works or pioporty used in the produc
tion of metals from the sale of miucial hinder
or claims , but aa to all such mineral lauds.
mining claims , mills , reduction works and
other property , the laws of the United States
and of the territories shall be , until changed
by act of congress or act of the territorial
legislature , the same as though said act Imi :
not been passed.
The senate then resumed the consideration
of the bill to piovido for the admission ol
South Dakota and the organization of the
tenltory of Noith Dakota. Mr. Uutlci
hoped the picsent territory of Dakotr
would not be dismembered. The bill of the
minority , ho said , proposed to uuthoriro tin
people of the territory to meet in convcn
tion , frame a constitution and state govern
memt and submit them to congress , mid
upon their ratlllcatlon by congress , declare
Dakota a state of the union. The nmjoritj
bill , on the other hand , proposed to ratifj
and confirm a so-called constitution adoptee
in South Dakota two mid one-half yean
ago , and to seat ns United States senatoi :
two gentlemen , republicans , who claimed t (

ST. PAUL , Minn. , April 10. [ Special Tcl < v
pram to the HER. ] James Ii. Campbell , tha
district attorney of Neillvillo , Grant county ,
Wls , arrived nt the Merchants hotcH last
Thursday night , accompanied by n youtiff
and peed looking woman from NclllsvUlp ,
puiporting to bo his wife , and who registered
as such. Ho was flush with money and
anticipated n week of pleasure In this city.
The couple were given apartments In the
hotel and spout the night there , but the next
day Campbell met somoof his old friends ami
foil Into n well cultivated habit of drinking.
He Is a mfin who likes liquor and ho got
gloriously full. The $ rOO In gccn backs
which he had In his pockets ho distributed
plentifully evervwheio. In a saloon where
ho met a convivial crowd ho tried to dis
tribute $100 bills , but was stopped by the
buitejulcr. Ho neglected his fair companion
at the hotel and spent the night making the
rounds.
Saturday morning the young woman , who
was greatly attached to him , attempted sui
cide in her room by blowing out the gas.
She was discovered after she became par
tially asphyxiated , In time to save her life.
She was not Campbell's wife , and the ulTnlc
was kept very quiet. A fi lend of Cumpboll'a '
telegraphed SheriiT Dwjcr , of that place , tqi
como here. Iho young woman swoie nhii
would never go homo alive , but she wnrt
llnnllv prevailed upon to accompany OUT
sheriff and his friend back to her homo.
She is Miss Annie Hnrtsom , said to bo tha
daughter of n wealthy and prominent Eiui
Claire ( Wls ) citbon. In the publication ot
her attempted suicide her 11:11110 was not
given but District Attoinoy Campbell got
his fnll share of notoriety. Ho felt the dis
grace keenly on account of the high onioinl
and social position which ho occupied. His
wlfo Is at ptesent visiting In Chicago , anil
his mother Is Ij Ing very slelc nt her homo irt
Pine Valley , six miles fiom Noillsvillo.
This was bad enough , but us Is now known
ho w as a defaulter , und In constant fcnr o {
discovery. In this state of mind ho eon tinned !
on his spree. Yesterday afternoon he toolr ( i
large ( lose of laudanum. While sinking Into
a state of Insensibility ho was found by an1 !
ofllcer who removed him to the Astoria
hotel. Physicians wcro summoned , and ho
is now out of danger. The ti ain from Neills- '
ville brought Captain Tulford , a deputy
sheriff , and Sheiiff Dwyer. Captain TalforcB
is also the agent of nn cbtnlo fiom which lU
is alleged Campbell has embezzled ? 900 rn-4
trusted to him , and came hero to arresw
Campbell. Sheiin Dwyer is an intimate *
fucnd of the unfoiluuuto man and came hcrotj
to act in that capacity. Requisition papers
were issued to Captain Talford by the gov
ernor of Wisconsin last Friday , but "tlio ;
papers weio found to be ineoircct and ?
wcro returned to Madison for Cd
rection. Fearing that Campbell might
skip Captain Talfoid came on nticad , expect
ing to have the papers forwarded. * Ha
hi .ought proper credentials , und Detcqtlvo.
Saclies , acting under oidcrs , went to the
room wheie Campbell was lying unconscioilrf
and enjoyed the novel experience of placing '
him under arrest. Oflieer Tom Casserly was'
detailed to icmuin in thu room with the pris

Campbell is a highly educated and brilliant
