Ko single event has Imil so much Influence
upon Die fate of ttio Mills tariff bill fis tlio
defeat of Dcriah Wllklns of Ohio , for rcnom-
ination. Mr , Wllklns has been ono of tlio
most pojiulnr unit Influcntlnl democrats In
the house. Ho Is a man of wealth and cul
ture , is now serving Ills third term , 1ms re
cently erected a hnndsomo residence in this
city , has been chairman of the committee on
banking mid currency , find has been u leader
of the democracy of his sine , as well ns u
man of prominence in the counsels of the
party at Washington. He is n prohibition-
isUdemocrnt , has fought with Randall when
ever tlio tariff has been under consideration
in the house , and lias been nctlvo in trying to
solidify his delegation in opposition
to the Mills bill. It was supposed by
Ills colleagues that ho was a ilxturo
in congress , but it appears that ho wns easily
defeated and an out and out frco wool man
named In his place , for in that district n nom
ination is as good ns an election. Forty-eight
hours ago there were few persons in Wash
ington who would have believed that Mr.
Wilkins could bo defeated for congress on
Another slgnlllcant fact Is that Judge
Sency of Ohio was compelled to pledge him-
eolf to the support of the Mills bill before ho
could secure a rcnomlimtion. This was also
unexpected because Mr. Sency comes from n
district which is supposed to bo strongly pro
tectionist and where n great deal of wool is
grown. IIo represents in congress the dis
trict in which John Sherman lives. The
friends of the Mills bill therefore take a
more hopeful view of the situation than they
have had any time , and it Is boliovcd that
there Is no doubt of tlio passage of the bill.

The evening Critic contains a stirring re-
vlow of the contest for the vice presidency on
the democratic ticket. It has many Interviews
with congressmen in which the opinion of their
constituents is pretty well expressed. The
contest , us shown by the Critic , has narrowed
down to Gray of Indhum and Black of Illi
nois , with some talk of Assistant Postmaster
General Stevenson. Congressman Richard
son of Tennessee says that the sentiment in
his state is favorable to any man suggested
by Indiana. If General Sloven son came
from that state ho would bo nominated by ac
clamation. Gray is to bo presented ns
the candidate from Indiana. Mr. Hichardson
thinks ho will receive the support of the del
egation from Tennessee.

Within the jiiist few months Mr. Worth-
inpton G. Ward , chief statistician of ttic stutc
department , has been in the habit of publish
ing for the bcneflt of newspaper correspond
ents a special issue of consular reports when
they contain anything of peculiar importance
and in this special Issue which was received
to-day there is n communication from Consul
Mann , wiio represents tlio United States In
Sweden , of the utmost importance to the
people in tlio hog raising sections of the
northwest. Mr. Mann says :
"In a hill now before tlio Swedish diet , at
Stockholm , called the industrial tariff bill ,
the object of which is to revise the tariff on a
protective basis in regard to Swedish trade
and labor , an Important item in tlio
provision schedule , imposing n duty on
American pork , has passed both chambers of
the diet. The duty has been fixed at 25
cro ( ( I cents ) and seven-tenths on
mucked fork , and 20 cro on nil other
porlc per kilogram , two and ono-Iifth pounds
nvolrdupols , which is so heavy that its un
doubted cfiect will be to prohibit the impor
tation , which at this port alone has aver-
nged about three thousand tons per annum.
The consul encloses an cxti act from the de
bate on the item in the bill regarding Ameri
can pork in tlio first chamber of the Swedish
diet in April last. The dcbato shows that
thcro is as great a diversity of opinion on the
Hubjcct of protection and frco trade in
Sweden ns there is in the United States , but
in tills instance the protectionists seem to
have won , ns the bill missed the first cham
ber by a majority of thirteen nnu the second
ilmmber by a vote of nearly two to one. "

LINCOLN , Neb. , May 11.--Special ( to Titn
HII : : . ] The traditional smoke of battle has
risen , nnd the field of the First congressional
district can bo viewed from n retrospective
stnnd | > ont ! after the Ashland horror.
There Is n record connected with the con
vention that has just adjourned. The people
of the state arc entitled to the record. It
will bo of use to them in the future. The
people are entitled to know who is respon
sible for the election of two notorious rail
road attorneys as party leaders in the
national convention. Thcro was no
Intention from the outset by the
manipulators of the convention that
the people should bo rcprcscnicd
The proof of this becomes positive in the
knowledge that the organized plan of the
railroad crowd was demoralization without
regard to consequences , that ttiolr end might
bo gained ,
The Douglas county delegation nnd the
Gage delegation combined early In the day.
There were n few honest men on the Gage
delegation who strenuously objected to sup
porting Greene , but Colby delivered them all
with the zest ho so much enjoys when piny-
ing the tool for n corporation. The combina
tion next gathered in the Saunders delega
tion , through the kindly work of Mr. Shcdd ,
who vied with Colby in adoration of Charley
Greene. Scovillc , the man the Saunders people
ple were supporting , accepted an alternate's
place much as If it were a railroad pass.
Johnson county next Joined the great swim ,
through the line work of Holmes , whoso
nfllnlty with Colby in such work is marked.
Whcedon. of Lincoln , held llvo of the Lan
caster delegation nnd they went to

In the shape of the chairmanship of the con
vention , und it remained for Cass county to
make-Its bed with them on the voluminous
promises that the earth should bo given Cap
tain Palmer for his .
use as dclcgate-at-hirge.
Illclmrdson county was opposed to Greene
undur any and nil circumstances ; Otoo
county was the same , and eighteen
votes In the Lancaster delegat on
were with them. Clarke , of Sarpy , was
present with llvo instructed votes against
Greene , and Casey , of Puwneo , with the
Pawnee delegation , refused all overtures
from the syndicate. They were n minority ,
but to all appearances an honest one.
The ballot upon which Grceno and Bates
were elected the ilrst ballot gives the rec
ord of the counties in this district that per-
trated the folly of binding the district in
the chains of corporations. For the misrep
resentation of the republicans of the First
congressional district those counties arc re
sponsible ; they are counties that locally
have been demoralized by the notorious in
terference of the railroad calipers who con
trolled their delegation at this convention.
On tlio call of counties the vote of delegates
wns as follows :
Cass Sixteen votes for Grceno nnd Bates.
Douglass Thirty-seven votes for Greene
Gage Nineteen votes for Grceno and
Johnson Eight votes for Greene and
Lancaster Eighteen votes for Bushnell
and Hansom , five votes for Greene and
Bates , two for Clarke nnd Thnycr.
Nemnha Nine votes for Casey nnd Wil
son.Otoe Twelve votes for Ilansoin nnd Bush
Pawnee Eight votes for Casey ana
Kiclumlson Twelve votes for Bushnell
Sarpy Five votes for Bushucll and Sco
Saunders Twelve votes for Greene and
It may bo proper to state hero that John C.
Watson and Frank Uatisom , of Nebraska
City , intended to make a light. They pro
posed , as the people desired , to call attention
to the fact that both Greene and Bates were
the creatures of the railways , that the party
could not afford to burden itself with such
representatives , etc. However , when the
cut nnd dried slate was sprung , nnd the two
railway emissaries were chosen on the lirst
round , there wns no chance to do anything.
Old republicans who have sat in many con
ventions declared upon hearing the result
that it was a nail in the coflln of the party in
the district. That Instead of aiding in the
coming contest for the election of n congress
man. It had piled another mountain load upon
the district. To the loyal republicans in the
district , the record of this convention nt
Ashland will bo branded us n folly if not a
crime. Ai , FAIUUKOTIIUU.

MHS. BEEM TELLS HER SIDE.
A Ksiiiarkable Story of Cruelty nnd
CHICAGO , May 11. [ Special Telegram to
Tin : Ben. ] The widow of Martin Ber-m was
interviewed nt Icngthlnst night. She was
completely amazed at the remarkable mem
orandum found in connection with Boom's
will , nnd said she woaul no longer hesitate
nbout telling her side of the story fully. In
addition to her own feelings , numbers of her
friends have rallied to'her side and insisted
that she disclose everything. She told a re
markable story of peculiar shortcomings ,
great and repented -cruelty and made other
serious charges against her husband. Be
ginning nt her marriage she said Bccm
greatly deceived her and her folks by mak
ing them nil bolib\'p "he- was a man of
wealth nnd great'social and political
prominence. She "said that the wefldlng
ring which Bcem placed on her linger wns
paid for with her own money. Soon nftcr
marriage he displayed a violent and vicious
temper , and within three weeks boat her
during some trlval disagreement so that
blood was drawn.Ho repeatedly tore off her
clothes in his fits of violence. His ambition
knew no bounds ; in fact , ho seemed to have
abiding faith that ho was one day to be pres
ident. This was t lie Secret of his sending his
wife to Europe. Ho feared she was not cul
tured enough to adorn the white house when
ho got thcro. While she \vo.s hi Europe he
kept heron the smallest pittance , and when
she returned the old trouble began again ;
the same scenes were rcenacted ; ho con
stantly criticising and finding fault with
her , and acting so that she firmly
believes that ho was demented. Mrs. Becin
continued her story , bringing charges of the
most serious unturd against the dead man ,
nnd saying , finally , that on the eve of her
second departure for Europe she was moved
to seek a divorce. Beom learned this while
she wns absent , nnd sent her cablegams , at
taching the forged name of her attorney
thereto , in order that ho might bo nblo to
intercept the correspondence. All his letters
to her were couched in the most remarkable
language , nnd in them ho frequently threat
ened her with every possihlo calamity should
she leave him. Mrs. Bccm said further that
his physical health , his financial straits and
other transactions to which the world gener
ally applies the term "crooked , " nddcd to
the fact that she was going to get a divorce ,
undoubtedly completed the overthrow of his
reason nnd led to his self-destruction. Mrs.
Becm does not know what to say of the
memorandum attached to the will which was
written the day bcjforo Becm started for
Stanton , unless it wad nn effort on his p.irt
to carry out his oft-repeated threat to "eter
nally damn her life. "

of tlio Moline water power nt l'J)0 : ! ) curried
away a largo section of the bulkhead which
runs across the south channel of the Missis
sippi between the Hock Island arsenal and
the main shore. This bulkhead wns con
structed of n heavy block of Nuuvoo stone
nnd was 700 feet long. Five hundred feet
of this wall has disappeared und It
is believed the rest has been
so badly disintegrated ns to need
rebuilding. This wall cost the government
$100,000. The tide of water coming to the
city front of Rock Island carried out to mid
stream $8,000 worth of logs from the upper
KIIW mills and the freight warehouse of the
St. Paul packet line. All trains are aban
doned on the St. Paul road between here nnd

WASHINGTON , Mny 11. After the morn-
Ing's business had been finished the house
went into committee of the whole on the
tariff bill , nnd Mr. Scott of Pennsylvania
took the lloor. Ho snld thnt the bill wns
framed in the interests of the people. It wns
intended In the Ilrst Instance to stop mount
ing the surplus In the treasury ; nnd second ,
to relieve as fnr ns prudence would permit
nt this time , the over-burdened industries of
the countries from excessive tnxntlon. On
referring to the tariff bill introduced by Mr.
Randall , Mr. Scott snld : "Taking it Item by
item , instead of relieving the tnx-riddcu
people clamorous for relief , the bill nctunlly
proposed to increase duties. Tlio majority
of the committee on ways nnd menus had
sought Ilrst , to relieve the manufacturing
interests by placing on the frco list , ns fnr ns
it possibly could , such articles ns were essen
tially necessary to them to enable them to
compote , not only in their own markets , but
in the markets of the world ; secondly , In a
revision and readjustment of the various
schedules under the existing tariff to leave
nmplo duties on nil merchandise that could
possibly bo Imported from nbroail in com
petition with homo products , and to protect
homo manufactures nnd labor employed by
IIo said the Randall measure , from what
ever point it was looked nt , was n misbegot
ten , illshnpcd , portcntlous , unjustifiable
monster , with no excuse for existence nnd
no purpose in its life but to obstruct the
democratic party and delay that justice
which the country dcmnndcd. The bill now
under consideration hud been formed for the
double puriwso of reducing the surplus nnd
relieving the country of needless tnxntlon.
The speaker wished to bo clearly understood
thnt tlio interests of labor had been steadily
held in view nud that this bill furnished that
protection to labor which his opponents pro
fessed to give , but to which their policy iuia
been directly opposed. Ho said protection ,
so culled , would add not u penny to the wage
worker's pay or give ono day's additional
work In the year , but 4 would rob him of an
undue proportion of his earnings to purchase
the necessaries of life and keep him happy
and Independent. The speaker went on to
say that upon no class of people did the pres
ent fiscal burdens of tlio country bear so
heavily ns upon the farming class. Ono of
the strong arguments the protectionists made
to the farmer wns the homo market that pro
tection was alleged to insure for his produce.
It was n fallacy and n fraud , and the InUilli-
gcnt farmers would not bo longer deceived
Turning his attention to the metals sched
ule of the bill Mr. Scott cited the case of the
Edgar Thompson steel works ns exhibiting
the operation of monopoly duty , swelling the
profits of the manufacturer into the most mi-
reasonable and appalling figures whilst add
ing nothing to the wages of labor , nnd nt the
same time restricting the market
of the farmer for his produce ,
through simply pillaging him upon his pur
chases of implements and apparel. Ho called
attention to natural gas und said the innnu
facturcrs who were so fortunately situated
required nothing moro to enable them to
"take the start of this majestic world nnd
bear the palm alone , " but free raw material ,
open markets around the globe , no unneces
sary restrictions hero or there , cheap food ,
cheap raiment nnd cheap blankets , Mr. Scott
went on to say the tariff did not protect the
coal miner , but robbed him In Just so far ns
it increased the cost what ho consumed by
the imposition of duties the government did
not need to meet its requirements.
The speaker next took up the subject of
wool , and sad | the aim of the majority of the
committee hid [ been to readjust duties upon
woolen and worsted good.s , so as to enable
the manufacturers not only to pay the same
wages they arc now paying , but to cheapen
the goods , thus enabling them to command
the homo market , which they arc largely de
prived of , and to compete in the foreign ones.
Free raw wool and the duties proposed on
the manufactures of wool would accomplish
In conclusion the speaker said : "We are
here , sir we , the majority of the ways nnd
means committee , and of this house , in de
fense of American industry. We alone offer
it protection , we seek alone the independence
nnd aggrandizement of domestic labor by
liberating it from unnatural restraint , and
nllowing it undisturbed possession and com
plete enjoyment of its own earnings. "
Mr. Scott spoke for moro than two hours
nnd was loudly applauded as ho concluded.
Mrs. Cleveland was in tlio gallery for a short
Mr. Gear of Iowa , in discussing the Mills
bill , said most of the democrats in his district
had told him that no Iowa representative
who voted for the measure could bore-elected
to congress. In this contest between frco
trudo nnd protection the republican party
had on its side the interests of the manufac
turers and laborers , while the other side wns
a large portion of the democratic party backed
by foreign Influence. The passage of the
Mills bill in the interest of free trade would
be a victory for British commerce.
Mr. Dibble of South Carolina criticised the
republicans for their proposition that the
only tariff duties which should bo reduced
were those on articles which could bo pro
duced in the south und for desiring thnt every
thing should be protected , except the rice of
the Cnrollnus and the sugar of Louisiana.
Ho thought this was n strange commentary
on the professed friendship of the republican
party for the negro laborer of the south.
Mr. Huughcn of Wlsconsin | opposed the
bill und criticised the president for having
been , in part , responsible for the surplus
which ho so much condemned by his failure
to approvo'tho river and harbor hill , and by
his neglect to exercise authority vested In
him by law , to pure-huso United States bonds.
The committee then rose und the house

against fnro made early this morning by
Charlie Plcrson , n well-known sjtort , nnd
thrco-llfths owner of the Arcade gambling
halls , which at the end of nbout n three
hours's run reduced him to a condition
which often overtakes those who "monkey
with the tiger. "
Plcrson walked Into his place nbout 3 this
morning , nnd to pass away time concluded to
"chnneo" n few dollurs on the game. Ho
promptly lost , nnd reaching for nn inside
pocket ho produced n roll of bills. A hundred
dollar bill soon vanished Into space. Another
disappeared. A third , fourth nnd fifth were
exchanged for "reds" und "blues , " which
found their way back into the "ruck"
without netting the player n dollar.
"Out of luck , by heavcnsl" exclaimed
Plcrson ns ho produced n big fat pocket book.
"Give mo $1,000 worth of checks , " nnd ho
placed two SCOO bills on the layout. "Blues , "
worth ! f0.2T each , were handed over and the
deal went on. Scnrely n bet wns won by
Picrson nnd his $1,003 was gone nnd
ho was "stuck , " ns the gamblers' par
lance runs. He must win out ntany ccst. and
$2,000 in checks were soon piled up before
him , but they dwindled nway rapidly , the
plnycr scarcely picking up n Dot.
A few deals were mndo nnd the betting
ran high. "Yellows" nt $25 apiece had taken.
the place of "reds" nnd "blues. " "I win
$9,000 on thai deal , " exclaimed Plcrson. "I
nm still In $01,000 but I'll get oven the next
deal , " and the "mechanic" on the opposite
side of tlio table begun to shulllo the curds.
Plot-son's bad luck canto buck to him with
renewed force , and inside of twenty minutes
ho had lost ultopether $ ! ! 0COO in cash. Ho
arose from the table , walked over
to the business desk nnd drew
his check for nil ho had in
tlio bank and began his attacks on the tiger
again. Ho lost rapidly nnd then put un his
interest in the house , receiving therefore
"checks" to the market value of hla GO per
cent interest. That went the way of the
balance , nnd the only thing ho had left was
n valuable ranch not far from the city. The
true gambling disposition wns centered.
in his partners , nnd they gave Charlie a
chance to "win out" by accepting his runcho
nt good figures. Fortune still frowned upon
the unlucky man , and when ho arose n few
moments afterwards from the table that had.
been his ruin , he was worse off by $100,000 ,
many people placing his "losings" at Sli5,000 ! ,
but doubtless the first mentioned sum " ! B
nearer the truth. >
This is the heaviest playing over done in
this part of the Rocky mountains. In the
early days of Virginia City , Nov. , fortunes

merly a cook in n Leudville hotel or restuu-

Luck followed his venture and ho wns soon n
wealthy man. Ho came to Denver nbout

without uny cessation. Until the time ho
sat down to the unlucky guuio ho was esti
