is no uncommon spectacle to seopaiticssi

However a larco force of workmen moon
ployed in putting up tents which arnve

to excuse the petty discomfiture of thei

At I o'clock jcsterdny the chorus class me

Lively Debate on the Subject in th
Senator Hnwlcy Points Out tlic Dnn e
of Undo SIUII'H I'dNltlnii Cock *
roll Grows Knectlous Tlio
Tni til' Discussion.
WIMUXOTOX , Juno 2'J. The senate to-da
resumed consideration of the army nppropriu
tion bill , the pending question being Mt
Hawloy's amendment offered yesterday.
Mr. Sherman said ho did not believe tint
the terms of the amendment were sufllciontl ,
guarded to protect the interests of the coun
try In beginning such a great enterprise. I
proposed to place the whole $ < VOJOOJ ! in th
liands of an ordnance bureau , a system wide :
was generally regarded as vicious and sure t
result in disaster. Its officers have no re
spcct for the rights of people outside , am
have always failed to recognize a valuabl
n vcntion when It was brought to their alien
Ion. U Is a crying shame , and every Ameri
can should be ashamed of It.
Mr. Hawley said the amendment morel ;
proposed to do for the arm ;
exactly what hod been done for th
navy. The proposition of the senate
from Maryland , if ho ( Hawley ) undorstooc
it , was that private concerns should bo in
vitcii to make a perfected gun but he ( Haw
ley ) asserted that no largo stool manufac
turcr in the country would undertake on an.i
teems that the government would listen U
or the people sanction , to build a 14-inoh
gun in Its own shops purely for an e.xperi
meat. After the harrassing experience o
John Hoaeh not one manufacturer woult
spend a million dollars in making the gun.
Mr. Hutler supported the amendment , bul
did not sympatht/e with the disposition t
criticise the ordnance bureau for the errot
of the army and navy.
After further debate the discussion wa (
suspended for the transaction of other bus
ness. Committees of conference were a |
pointed on the legislative , the diplomatic nn
consular and the District of Columbia apprc
priutlon bills.
Mr. Allison reported back the Joint resoln
tion extending the appropriations for tin
present liscal year for Unity days from Jutn
yo in the dcpai Intents of the government fo :
which appropriation bills for the next j ca
shall not have become laws and the scnat
proceeded to consider it After a long dis
cussion the Joint resolution was passed with
out division and the senate resumed consld
oration of the army nppiopriation bill , tin
question being on the amendment offered hi
Mr. Hawley.
Mr. Hawley stated that if the America !
people wore driven to war and were huinil
nited then the men who argued against tin
policy of providing guns would hldo them
selves aud would call upon the mountains ti
fall upon them. The country with its 00,000 ,
000 of people , was a monstrous mass of po
litical power , but against modern steel guns
it was no more effective than a dead whale.
Mr. Stewart spoke ol the United States as
belntr a good fat goose to bo plucked by any
body , and referred to thu alarm felt at Sai :
Francisco two years ago , when trouble will
Chili was appiehended.
Mr. Cockroll snoko sarcastically of tin
fruiizy exhibited bi the senators from Con
nccticut and Nevada. Ho could iilmos1
imagine the Hritish red coats coming dowi. .
fi oin the skies , landing on American soil ,
driving back the timid Yankees and levying
contributions on American cities.
"They burned this capital , " Mr. Hawlej
"Yes , they burned this capital once , " said
Mr. Cockrell , "and they regret it to tlns
day. "
"Dowel" was Mr. Hawlcy's laconic re-
"No , sir , " said Mr. Cockrell , "the Ameri
can people do not regret it. "
In thu couise of his fuither argument Mr ,
Coclsrell was asked by Mr. Stcwait whether
ho approved of Germany taking tliuSainoan
islands. "That has nothing to do , " was the
teply , "with the fortifications of the United
States. "
"What has the Samoan islands to do will
thu turnloiiiil integrity of the Unitct
States "
"Answer my question , " said Mr. Stewart
"It's none of your business whether 1 do 01
not. It's not the question in issue , " said Mr.
In continuing Mr. Cockrell said that the
American people feared nobody ; that H
worshipped at thu shrine of an everlasting
almighty Jehovah and not , that
01 any single power on earth
or of nil of them combined ; that i
bid them defiance and that the talk about the
necessity for formications was not only un
manly but childish. The senator from New
York might have no fear. He would novel
seu a foreign power levying contributions on
any city of thu United States.
As to Canada the militia of the bordei
states could take care of her. f ! Cumuli
should cross the border in hostile array ev >
cry foot of that country would bo under tin
jurisdiction of the United Stites within
sixtj days. And as to Great Hritain , a wni
with the United States would bo the doutli
knell of that power.

Thecrlmofor which Peter Hronek paid
the penalty to-tlay was ono of the foulest
murders ever committed On Sunday even

saloons , and drinking heavily , according to
the evidence olTeied at the trial , at each of !
them , Hionok went to his home , a little one-
story brick house nt No. ii ) . " > Olive street ,
and deliberately shot down his joung wife ,
emptying three chambers of his revolver in
her body.
There were no witnesses to the shooting ,
the only persons who could throw any lighten
on the murder at all being Tony .Augustine ,
a Hohcmian , and his wife who lived in the
same house.
According to the evidence offered at the
trial , Augustine was startled by the report
of three pistol shuts lircd In rapid succession ,
and hastening to the room fiom
which the firimj proceeded attempted
to open the door. It was locked
and listening for a moment ho heaul llronek
exclaim : "There , you've got it , you b h. "
lly tins time u largo crowd had congregated
at tlio place , but it was some minutes before
enough courage could ba summoned up to go to
the window and peer in. It was n ghastly
sight that met the eyes of the
visitors. The body of the murdered
woman lav on the lloor in n pool
oC blood , and the husband clad only In his
under garments with a pistol in his hand ami
a cigar between his teeth , was pacing up and
down the room like a caged wild beast.
Thciewus blood everywhere , on the walls ,
on the lloor , and the two occupants
of the room weio covered with
it. The pool of blood on the floor
coveted a space four feet s < | U are and was
nearly one inch deep As the crowd gn/eel
they saw the murderer suddenly tin ow away
his cigar and walk to the cradle in which lay
his sleeping babe. Me kissed it and then de
liberately lay down in the pool of blood by
the side of his victim. Ho caught her
in his arms and kissed her a
hundred times and finally sei/ingtho corpse
in his powerful grasp , rolled with it over and
over on the lloor , shouting and moaning nil
the time. Ofllcers iinall.v arrived. but Hronek
paced the room , with his levolvcr in his hand
and defied them. Strategy was finally
icsoitcd to and ho was sci/ed by a neighbor
who went to otter him some beer. The only
ground for the shooting was Hionek's un-
