gram to Tin : I3ii : : . ] The Natatoriuin hull
was crowded to-night to see the sparring
match advertised between Mitchell nnd Kil-
rnin , but the police prevented the match , the
board of police commissioners having de
cided to strictly enforce the law against
boxing. The crowd was orderly , although
Indignant at the interference of the police ,
particularly at their refusal to allow either
fencing or wrestling. Short speeches were
mndo by both Mitchell nnd Kilrain. The
former said that the Americans were preju
diced against him because ho couldn't let
Sullivan lick him , and ho was going to re
turn to England in two weeks. Kilrain said
that ho was in earnest with his proposed
match with Sullivan , and that the HutTalo
meeting would be held and the battle fought.

Five well-known republican statosmcr
emerged from the room of the senate com
inittco on ilimnco nt 1 o'clock to-day , tint
filed down Into tlio restaurant for lunch
They had been in conference nil the fnro
noon , and from the expression their face
bore , the work they were doing was of n ver ;
importnnt chnrnctcr. None of them , however
over , would talk upon the subject. The ;
were , Messrs. Merrill , Sherman , Allison
Aldrlch and Hiscook , nil members of tin
committee on linancc. One of them venttirei
the information that they would bo in set
sloii nil the afternoon nnd would forego tin
festivities of to-tnorrow in order that tho.i
mi ht us nearly ns possible complete tin
work they were upon. When lunch was eve :
* thcy returned to the committee room agalt
nnd placed double guards nt the door , utu
for more than two hours continued in thoii
secret session. It is ascertained that tlu
committee Is passing for the las'
tune , upon the republican substitute to tin
Mills tariff bill , with a view of getting tlu
measure in such u condition that nil of tlu
amendments may bo voted upon at ono time ,
In the event of the democrats delaying Una
action , the bill will be taken up in the senate
again on W cdticsdiiy , nnd the work of It ;
consideration will progress as heretofore. 11
is believed ttnit the democrats , notwitlmtaml
idg their pledge * to begin voting on the bil
on the 21st of January , will light the amend
ments to an extent that will preclude u voti
upon more than a very few of them , wheu
that day arrives. The republicans propose
to have the bill in condition , so that when
the Hist of January is reached u dual vote on
all of the amendments can. be taken , and the
bill put upon its passage without further de
bate or ceremony. It is not oolloved that
there will bo many important amendments
adopted. A cut of 50 cents on the lumber
duty may bo the only amend
ment of importance. When the bill
comes to a. ilnnl vote , or a llnal vote is taken
on nil of the amendments at one time , the re
publicans say they will stand solidly to
gether. It is to moot such emergencies as n
vote upon all of the amendments nt one time
that the republican members of the commit
tee on finance have been in caucus for sev
eral days and will continue at that work for
some days to come.
Republicans in Washington , who bnvo re
cently talked to General Harrison on the
cabinet question , say the Pacific slope has
overdone itself in presenting the names of
men for preferment , and may get loft en
tirely. When General Harrison indicated
that he would like to have suggestions from
the people on the Pacific coast as to whom
they would prof or for a place in the
cabinet , they appear to have taken their po
litical directory nnd selected almost every
numo within reach. They have urged the
appointment of John II. Uoalt , ox-Governor
Swift , Mr. Estec and many others from Cal
ifornia and Oregon. Among the number , the
nnmo of Senator John II. Mitchell , of Oregon
gen , has bacn received with favor by Gen
eral Harrison , but it is believed that owing
to the fact that Senator Mitchell is in a posi
tion where he can do the Pacific Slope and
the administration much good , Hoult is in the
fore front just at this time.
Some of the most prominent. ; republican
protectionists in the iiouso nre talking of n
conference to bo hold immediately after the
expiration of the present session , and to bo
attended by the republican members-elect to
the next congress for the purpose of forestall
ing the election of a speaker. The movement
means the selection of a man on the platform
adopted at Chicago , and presages success for
Mr. McICinley , of Ohio , it is thought by his
friends hero. A feeling is growing that Mr.
Heed will bo needed on the floor during the
tariff debate , which will ensue the next ses
sion , and Mr. McICinley is the ideal protec
tionist among the candidates forspeakcrship.
Ono of thp prime motives in the conference
is to cut olT the usual campaigns for the
sponkcrship , thereby saving time and money ,
and avoiding the possibility of falling.
To-day's local newspapers announce that
at present Mr. Cannon , of Illinois , has more
votes pledged to him than any other candi
date. Mr. Cannon Is moderate in his views :
on tariff reform , believing that there should
bo lower ttutics , and If the proposed conference -
once has in view the selection of a high pro
tectionist , ho may be left out.
Senator Mamlcrson mndo tin argument to
day before the committee on linancc , in favor
of free lumber or a substantial reduction in
the duty , and fora bounty on the production
of bent sugar , and the admission free for a
year of beet sugar machinery for experi
mental purposes. He showed the state of
the experiment in the boot culture in Ne
braska , particularly at Grand Island , where
10,00 ! ) acres have been purchased for
that purpose , and that the , michurrino
matter is very much -ftroater than
in German beets. Ho expects a com
promise of from BO cents to $1 per 1,000 feet
on white pine sawed lumber , a bounty of 1
cent per pound on beet sugar , and hopes for
the introduction ot experimental machinery
frco for ono year. Senators from the lumber
producing states arc making vigorous rcsist-
iinco to any change in the lumber schedule ,
because of the great amount of labor involved
in lumber production.

The old French battery by the town next

to his government th'tV there would have
been no particular excitement if one of the
shells had not comq dangerously close to the
United States consul' , and scared him
out ot his wits. It was ho , the commander
alleged , that started the sensational reports
of the shelling of the town. No shots wore
fired from the Dessallnes , except a very few
to silence the forts.c

Tim Ur.i.1 The rather empty formality of
declaring the so-called "Q" strike oft will
probably bo gone through with to morrow.
A meeting to that end was held nt thu Uur-
lington ofilccs this morning between General
Manager Klpley , President Stone und Solici
tor General Wlrt Doxtcr , representing the
company , and Chairman Cnvoncr nnd eight
comnnttcemcn appointed by the Hichmoiul
convention of engineers , with full power tc
act. The engineers and officers of the road
were in session from Idll ! ) o'clock until 1:30
this afternoon.
Wirt Dexter said this nfternoon : "Noth
ing was done nt the meeting , a general talk
only having been indulged in. Another
meeting will be held to-morrow. "
From nnother source It was learned that
the strike would bo declared off , In
exchange for which the company would
make some concessions. What these
lira is not known , and they
can only Go surmised , and it can V > o safely
said that they will bo few , ns none of the
new engineers will bo displaced In favor of
the strikers. The committee , it was said ,
was unanimous in declaring that the strike
should end so that tha engineers could take
their chances iu getting back. It was an
nounced that the pay of the strikers wHl
cease to-day , that limit having been set by
thu Richmond convention , The Uurlington
engineers who went on n strike last spring
stand nlone as n body , deserted by the LJroth-
orhood nnd boycotted by the enemy. Hut
that is not the worst of it , by any means. A
great many of them have been so reduced in
circumstances that their homes have been
broken up , nnd not a few are trampswander
ing about the country. That is the story in
a nut shell told an Evening News reporter
by n Texas & Hio Grande engineer ut the
National hotel this morning.
"You see , it Is this way , " ho said. "After
the strike was declared the engineers grow
restless , and the majority spent the greater
portiop of their time in hanging around the
headquarters here in Chicago. Chairumn
Hope and his assistants ran things just as
they pleased , Arthur being barred out al
most entirely. The talk around headquar
ters was pretty radical , and the associations
were dangerous. Thus it was that about
every man became a professional and dissat
isfied agitator , and the feeling became preva
lent that the 'Q' road ought to bo downed at
any cost. This led to the dynamite conspira
cies. The hopelessness of their causa then
became apparent , and the strikers scattered.
Where are the.v to-day ! I have met dozens
of them on the Hio Grande road , with hope
less looks in their faces , and despair in their
every actipn. They could find no work , tho.v
all said , except such as they could Hud along
their travels , nnd if they disclosed their
idcntity-to any of the lullrnad managers to
whom they applied for employment , they
were lost so far as being given work"
"What per cent of the VQ' men are now
out of woik ? "
"I should say over 50 per cent are now
without employment and with no prospect of
getting any. The brotherhood has made a
nrctensc of supporting them , but not more
than half have secured their dues nnd to-day
they will receive the last dollar from the
order. The engineers of the other roads
liavo been put to frrcat Inconvenience in pay
ing the 10 a month assessments to eon-
tribute to the support of the strikers , and
there is not a man in the organization but is
licartily glad that the dram will end to-day.
Hero are some interesting figures : Over
fifteen hundred engineers struck. They
were to receive $00 a month
from the brotherhood. As I saitl ,
a little more thnn half got
that much , while the rest secured just what
l-they could. Figure the outlay at $33 a man
Ijfor the eight months of the strike , and you
! ' have the grand total of expense of ? 4iOt)00.
Other expenses bring the amount up to a
round half million. "
"What about the story in n morning paper
that n general boycott had been declared by
thu roads against the strikers f"
'As I said , a great many railroad managers
will not biro a 'Q' strikers. The story is
true , but there is no foundation for the re
port that all of the engineers of the brother
hood are combining for u big strike if Uie 'Q'
docs not come to some arrangement with the
old men. Such n move would be most foolish ,
and could not succeed. "

Had discovered the existence of a gigantic
conspiracy against the Hurlington strikers.
He asserted that all the principal railroads
in the country , with the exception of three
running west from Chicago , had entered into
an agreement to refuse employment to Hur
lington strikers unconditionally , nnd that ,
furthermore , several of the largo roads were
prepared to glvo the Hurlington financial aid
In their fight. Ha said the boycott against
the strikers had been proven by the actual
experience of a number of men who had
been selected to go to various point. ? In the
country and apply for work on different
roads. The result was the same in all cases ,
As soon as It was learned that they cacio
from the ranks of tha Burlington strikers , ,
they met n point blank refusal. Wh'm the
engineers placed a boycott on the "Q" road
, lust spring , said the delegate , the managers
of the other roads came to them and begged
them to pull it off , saying they would not
glvo the Uurlington any assistance they
could possibly avoid , and that they
would not discriminate against the
engineers. The discovery now of what
the men term u conspiracy against them has
made the engineers wild , and thu meeting
was called more for the purpose of consider
ing this matter than anything else , The

rounding the finding of the mutilated remains
mains of a murdered man In cast Fnlrinouiii
park Wednesday has been solved , the corpse
identified and the murderer placed In prison
The motive for the deed was to obtain th (
money of the murdered man , but all that the
murderer was known to liavo re
alized Is $ 0. The corpse was irtcnti
fled ns that of n German named Schil
ling , who boarded with his partner , iinmci ]
Shroop , in a small grocery store. Sliroop ,
when arrested , denied any knowledge of the
murder. Ho mndo many conflicting state
ments and after u night in n cell confessed
the murder , The hatchet , nxo and saw used
by Shroop were found In the cellar of his
house this morning covered with blood. They
wore taken charge of by the police nnd
will bo preserved ns evidence at the trial.
The body , cither before or after llfo was ex
tinct , was carried Into the collar , where It
was evidently , judging from the clotted
blood , allowed to remain until the following
morning , when , after having been cut to
pieces nnd placed in was found in the
park. The wooden lloorwlth which n portion of
the cellar is covered , Is bloodstained In sev
eral places. Shroop's wife , who is pros
trated on account of her husband's arrest ,
Is in custody ns nn accomplice.
The murderer was given n hearing before
the mnglstrato to-day. Ho gave his nnmo ns
Jacob Schroop , aged llfty-tiirco ye.ars , nnd
said ho was born in Switzerland. The police
officials testified to Schroop having confessed
the murder of Schilling , nnd the prisoner
was then formally committed to await the
action of the coroner. Lnto this afternoon
Chlof Wood gave to the newspapers u copy
of the confession made by Schroop , in winch
the latter snys the nnmo of the murdered
man was Antenna Schilling , nnd that ho
killed him about r > o'clock on the morning of
Christmas day. Ho says he arose from bed
about that hour and went to the kitchen to
get some food for his wlfo , who was sick.
On looking in the cupboard ho found no fdod
there and turning to Schilling , who was in
the room , accused him of having eaten what
bad been left in the closet. Schilling denied
having eaten the food and Schroop , becom
ing angered , knocked him down and beat
him to death with n heavy piece of wood.
Ho loft the body until 5 o'clock in the after
noon" , when ho cut off the legs and throw the
body and severed legs into tlio collar. Next
morning about 0 o'clock he hitched up his
horao and wagon , and having placed the
body in two bags ho loaded the bags into the
wagon nnd drove to the park and placed the
bags in the pine , where they were found late
the same day by some boyswho were playing
about the place.

prepared a statement or resolution denounc

not deem it within the province of n master '

clearly csuibltshcd by precedent that they
should issue , mid contents him
self with suggesting that ono
issue. As to the facts , ho finds complainant *
have n constitutional right to meet ; thai
there is no testimony beyond the moro belief
of Chief of Police Hublmrd and Innpoqtor
Uonilold that connilalnants dcsiro to overthrow - '
throw thu laws of thu state nnd nation. TtVq
statement of these defendants that some of
the members of thoArboiter bund belonged -
to anarchistic societies , in which ttio over *
throw of stnto and national laws was advo
cated , is not sufficient to prove the Arbcltcr
bund to bo an Illegal nnd revolutionary or
ganization. Ho says the affidavits of com
plainants nnd several other citizens
say that the purposes of the bund
arc lawful and proper. The mantor
denies that to restrain tbo polled
from permitting the Arboitor bund meeting
would be an interference with thulr discre
tion. On that subject ho says in part : "It is
hostile and oven dangerous to thu genius of ;
our institutions , and In conlllct with these
upon winch they urd based , to assume that n
policeman without judicial responsibility
shall exercise judicial power to grant "or
withhold the rights of citizens constitu
tionally to meet In public assemblies. If the
mere belief of n police officer that projected'
public meetings nro for unlawful pur
poses hliall operate to the prohibi
tion of such meetings , such belief .
created perhaps by error , malice , bigotry
or political partisanship may bo resorted to
for the effectual extinguishment of a funda
mental right.
When citizens hnvo assembled , if they ad
vocate or proceed to the commission of un
lawful acUi or the overthrow of government ,
or the destruction of property , then the con
servators of peace may exercise their discre
tion in dispersing them. If in this case the
police have substantial grounds for their belief -
lief , they should not bo engaged in a debate
before a muster in chancery defending -
fending an assumed judicial power ,
but , ns conservators of tbo peace , should ar
rest the complainants and appear as their ac
cusers in a criminal proceeding. "
The attorney for the Arbeitcr bund con
siders the report , of the master only a partial

said to a reporter : "It docs not make much- .
difference what is done by tlio courts ; the
