Representative Dorscy said this morning-
"I notice the Urn Is criticising me for s'iy ing
I would not support the Mills tariff bill , and
nays that 1 should keep my pledge nnd
not say 1 would not supixirt this bill , as It
may bo amended in the house. If the editor
of the Ur.i : will read his own paper ho will
find good and sufficient reason given therein
for my opposition to this bill , nnd when ho
enys the bill may bo amended In such a man
ner ns to bo acceptable , ho shown thnt lip Is
not conversant xvlth the situation here. Tlio
Mills bill , if It passes , will go through with
out ani amendments of importance. It will
bo passed under the spur of the party lash ,
directed by the party caucus precisely as the
adjournment was forced yesterday on the di
rect tax bill , Tlio northein democrats will
ngaln get down on their knees to the south
ern brigadiers. The deals linvo all
been made. 1 nm opposed to any bill puts wool on the free list. The Mills
bill contains some good provisions , but there
nro so many vicious ones that nro against the
Interests of those engaged in ngricultuinl
pursuits that the bill should bo defeated. I
nn anxious to vote for a fair and equitable
jovision of the tnriff n icvlslon that will
tend to take the bin den of tuxes fiom the
funnel s nnd the laborlngmen I w ill vote to
put on the free list n number of nrtieles
named in the Mills bill ; nlso some others not
mentioned in tlio bill ; nlso to reduce the
duties on tlio metul and chemical schedules
whcie such notion will not injure the indus
tries. I have urged during the entire ses
sion that our paity take nn nnlrmntivo posi
tion on the tariff , and am now very sure that
the substitute that tlio minority will offer for
the Mills bill will receive the suppoit of nil
republicans nnd bo satisfactory to Hit }

The Scaffold Atones for tbo Murderer
or IIlly Field.
rnnovs FAU. , Minn. , April 10. ( Special
Telegram to the llr.n. | Nels Olson Holong ,
the murderer of Lilly Tlcld , tins expiated
his awful crime uK | > n the gallows. Every
known expedient was tried to avert the fate
to which his deed had condemned him , without -
out success , nnd the Inw has been uplfcld
nnd vindicated. The little Jail was crowded
with these who were permitted to gii/c upon
the execution. Outside a largo crowd lin
gered , nnd every ono who left the building
was besieged with curious inquitcrs eager to
learn the smallest details of the legal tragedy
that was being enacted within.
Hulong ascended the scaffold with falter
ing step , but showed little signs of fear , llo
seemed most alarmed while the warrant was
being read. At 1 55 p. m. the drop fell.
The trap worked to perfection. Holong's
neck was instantly broken nnd his muscles
scarcely twitched. Holong made n
statement Monday nfteinoon in which
ho admitted the murder , but
denied that ho outraged the gill. Ho as
sorted thnt Lilly herself sent her little
brother to the neighbors w ith the borrowed
shovel. When asked whether ho did not
send Clark , Miss Field's ' hi other , nwny thnt
ho might bo alone with the girl nnd better
accomplish some put pose ho had in mind ,
Holong protested that ho did not.
"Nels , " chimed the death watch , " , \ou
know \ou have only three inoro daj s to live
nnd you cannot afford to tell a lie now. "
Nels said that ho knew It , but that ho was
telling the ti nth.
After Clntk had gone he still stnjcd In the
house and Lilly begun to scold him nbout
sotno sheep which had died on the Do Terre
fmm. Nels said that he told her ho was not
to blnmo for the sheep djing : that ho had
given them the same cat c ho had to the others.
Ho then said that without anj fuithcr cause
she seirodn butcher knlfo lying on n shelf and
told him to get out nnd came nt him. IIo
protested In the face of death that he did not
make an impure proposition M her , or at
tempt to take any libcrtj with her person.
After these questions had been put to him
dlicct , and every ell'otthnd been made to
induce him to toll the truth about his mo
tives , ho wont on mid said that nt the time
shu came nt him he stood with hn jack-knifo
in his hand cleaning his pipe. Ho was aleit
In ( .hanging the subject , and constantly rung
in titades against the Fields. When
asked about being kicked by the hot so ,
ho said it was when ho was twelve

w bile it looked something like her , ho thought
it looked inoic like her sister who bad died
se\ oral years before. Just then some ono
was heaid to enter the coiudor , nnd Holong

A Startling Story.
POUTI.VXD , Ore. , April 13. [ Special Tele
gram to the Hn : ] Tlio News today pub
lishes a. sensational nitlclo , containing start
ling disclosures ns to the workings of the
gang of smuggleis , snld to be led by Herbert
rHecdicr. . In substance it is as follows :
Hcibcrt 1 \ Hcecher was appointed col
lector of customs for the Sound district
shortly nftcr President Cleveland took his
seat. The smuggling of opium commenced
on n small scale during the shot t term thnt
Hecchcr occupied the ofllco. It Is supposed
that Captain Hcibert V. Hcecher becnmo
conversant with the methods of the smug
glers when ho was commander of the good
steamer Kvangcle , nnd was plj ing on the
sound Just before. being npiwlntcd
collector of customs. HcecVer
found out during his short
stay In the collector's seat that there wns
millions in the smuggling business , nnd ho
was inmlo n special ngent of the tiensury do-
pal tmcnt. This position Hcecher used to
control Collector Quincy A. Hiooks , who wns
mndo collector when the senate i of used to
conllim Hcecher. Hiooks , it is said , has
been like so much putty In the hands of the
wilcy Hcecher. About every two weeks
batches of from tlitco hundred to four
bundled pounds wcio inn through to this
city. 11 was bronnht ncioss fiom Victoria

fiom Montreal to Wateitown. N. V From
Wntci town it was shipped to Mrs \Vhltnov
nt Kansas . household goods , and from
Knnsas ( Jitj It was sent to San Francisco.
Tlio last and fatal lot shipped was on the
Kith of .lauu.uj last Hero was some 1,000
pounds with shipment. It was the largest
vcntuio the onicial smugglers had yet made ,
was neccssaiy thnt their plans should not
mlscMiiy. The opium was ship
ped fiom Victoiin to Fort Ynlo.
l-'ook Yuen nnd How Yuen ,
of Victoim , nnd n Chinese linn in New
Minster , furnished the opium. The prieo to
bo paid was sr fiU perpound. Six dollars n
pound was paid down , or n total of $ , M,000.
The lemaining $1,50 , amounting to SO.OJO wns
to bo paid when the opium wns delivered to
the patties in San Francisco to whom It was
consigned. The object of this was to mnka
the Chinese paitncis in the tiansaction and
toinsuien sale The Chinese then would
not make n combination against them. The
opium ni lived at San Fiancisco , but a
thousand pounds of it was sci/ed there nnd
cipher telegrams from the gang to Hcecher
clearly moves his pait In the smuggling.
It is supposed that the ring intend to cm-
bailc in business umiin so as to make up for
the losses on the last shipment. As n prc-
limmarv to this the honest deputies under
Hiooks had to bo put out of the way. In-
spectois Luther , Day , Hojd nnd .lones wejo
lemovcd last week and it looks ns though the
boodleis will lesume business at the old stand ,
