It is Settled That the Minneapolis Cen
sus Must His Taken Over.
ST. PAUL , Minn. , Juno 18. [ Special Tele
gram to Tin : BIE. : ) It is settled that the
Minneapolis census must be taken over , in
causing the seven arrests last night for mak
ing fictitious entries several sackfuls of the
returns were taken from Minneapolis to St.
Paul and locked up for use as evidence.
William Pitt Murray , the St. Paul attorney
who made the affidavits on Which the arrests
were based , says tlio disclosures are astound
ing nnd that 2.5,000 or moro fictitious names
have been entered upon the lists. Ono of the
detectives who made the search for crooked
work said lists of names were preferred in the
foreign languages most likely to be met with.
The surnames in another.
With the sheets it was a matter of case to
shift Christian mimes from ono surname to
another and thus create a fictitious person
age , supply him with a wife and if desirable
with a whole family. With a list of vacant
houses and unoccupied rooms it was a matter
of trilling moment to furnish him with n
Lists of laborers In various parts of the
state were obtained from the payrolls of lum-
bernicn and from the records of employment
agencies. These wore located in vacant
houses , and , if vacant , names wore also copied
from directories in other cities and from
tombstones in cemeteries.
From ono employment accney 4,000 names
of men who had applied for work wJthiii six
or eight months were obtained , and to cap
the climax 800 cognomens were obtained from
a tramps' lodging house , where nil slccDcra
were required to register , and the bOO were
provided with wives and children.
Minneapolis Indian nitty Protests.
MiN.NiiAi'oi.is , Minn. , Juno 18. A party

to St. Paul this morning to recover the cen
sus records confiscated last night by Deputy
Marshall Daggett. They were driven out of
Commissioner McCnfforty's olllco at the muz
zles of revolvers. The city-is in a state of
wild indignation over the high-handed and
irregular proceedings. Neither United
States District Attorney Hay nor Supervisor
Davenport were parties to tlio proceedings.

DiiNvr.ii , Colo. , Juno 18. [ Special Telegram
to Tin : BKI : . ] Two tragedies have shocked
this city today. Tills morning , shortly after
breakfast A. M. Jones , u well known citizen ,
suddenly drew a revolver In the dining room
and shot his wife , and then shot himself
through the heart. Mrs. Jones is not yet
dead , and though shot through the body ,
has some chnnce of recovery. Jones' act is
attributed to. temporary insanitv caused by
the recent loss of n law suit In which ho was
interested. No other known cause existed ,
For a day or two past ho has been acting
strangely , but no attention has been paid to
It. Jones has resided in Colorado since 18CO ,
and was iu California In M'J. '
This afternoon George G. McCartney shot
and instantly killed L. A. Melburn. Both
are well known business men and carriage
mukors. Tlio trouble between them origi-
nutedover certain indictments against Mc
Cartney , which Melburn , as n member of the
grand jury , was charged with/ having pro
cured. McCartney was arrested.
M > s. Phinnoy'H Statement.
Ci.ivii.vxn : : , O. , Juno 18. [ Special Tele
gram to TIIK BII : : , ] The national nonpartisan -
partisan Women's Christian Temperance
union , through Mrs. Ellen J. Phinney , has
issued the following statement :
'Tho organization of u non-partisan Wo
men's Christian Temperance union in Now
York City n week ago has been heralded
through the press with accompanying state
ments altogether unfounded , as well as con
trary to the spirit and alms of the new orga
nization. It ought to be well understood by
this time that the principle of prohibition is
firmly imbedded iu the temperance faith of
both brunches of the Women's Christian
Temperance union , nnd that our difference on
this point Is altogether u difference of means
to the end ,
"The partisan Women's Christian Tem
perance union believes it is necessary to the
attainment and enforcement of the prohi
bition that the party bo built up , having this
question as its main Issue ; while the nonpartisans -
partisans believe that prohibition will bo
sooner secured mid better maintained if it Is
not linked with the varying fortunes of any
political party , but wins to Its support und
defense tno united temperance sentiment in
"In line with this belief it is unques
tionably true that the non-partlsnn women
lay moro stress upon various lines of edu
cational and ovungeltstlo work , believing such
work undeilles all permanent temperance re

would bo a partial failure.

Bill FOUUTKENTII KT , V
WASHINGTON , D. G. , Juno IS. \
Some weeks ago , when the silver bill \viis
first taken under discussion In the scnnto nnd
when Scniitor Teller of Colorado was about
the only member of that body who was nu
out-and-out free coinage man , n canvass was
made , which has been repeated at Intervals
over since , to ascertain .the standing of the
various senators upon the subject , particu
larly the number of democrats who were op
posed to free coinage. As late as the llrst of
the present week thcro were twenty demo
cratic senators who said that they were op
posed to the free coinage of silver nnd would
not vote for any bill containing that feature.
Great therefore was the surprise of all who
were acquainted with the position of the leadIng -
Ing democrats In the senate on the subject
wlicn the bill passed with only three demo
cratic votes recorded against It. It was sup
posed that the democrats , such as Senators
BloJgett of Now Jersey , Gorman of Mary
land and Payne of Ohio , would vote against
free coinage , knowing that their states were
opposed to it. The explanation of this ap
parent inconsistency comes from Senator
Gorman , the chairman of the demo
cratic caucus of the senate , and
probably the best politician in .tho
uppcr iouso of congress. Ho says that
any democrat would bo a fool to
aid in keeping the frco coinage bill from
going to the white house. So fur as the demo
crats were concerned , Mr. Gorman thought it
would make no difference whether the presi
dent signed the bill or not , ns it was certain
in either event to benefit the democratic
party. If the president vetoed it , ho would
liuvo the Pacific coast states against him , this
democratic ' leader claimed ; while , If the pres
ident 'signed it , ho would have the cast
against him. so ho thought it was a picco of
sharp practice for the democrats to help pass
the bill. No doubt this will bo the view
taken under his udvieo by tlio democrats in
tlio house , which will make the defeat of the
bill there diflleult unless the small contingent
of western republicans who have been sup
porting free coinage change their attitude on
HOUSU ACTION ox THE su.YKR niLTi.
Under the rules of the house the silver bill ,
which was received this morning from the
senate , will go into committee of the whole ,
as it carries an appropriation and might bo
placed upon the calendar as occupying that
position. Mr. Bland of Missouri this after
noon attempted to have the committee of tho'
whole rise lor the purpose of taking the bill
from the speaker's table nnd giving it final
consideration. There was a flurry on the
floor the instant Mr. Bhuid's movement was
interpreted , and for some minutes there was
wild confusion. Speaker Heed anticipated
tills movement , and for a time before it was
inaugurated circulated quito actively on the
republican side with a view to getting
ills men Into line. Had it not been
for this the proposition of Mr. Bland would
undoubtedly have prevailed and the frco
coinage bill with nil its amendments would
have been rushed through the house. As it
was the motion failed by a vote of 'JI ayes to
105 nays. Mojt of the absentees from the
house are western men , who are in favor of
frco coinage , and it is believed that unless
Mr. Hoed can do some very rfCectivo mission
ary work the free coinage men will get their
absent men hero and by a dint of a majority
vote take the bill from the speaker's table and
pass it. The speaker nnd his followers are
counselling conservative work , caution and
thoughtfulness , and it is among the possibil
ities , although not likely , that if there can bo
some delay the free c"imigo feature of the
measure will yet fail. No one lias yet been
able to get a direct indication from the presi
dent as to what ho would do with such a
measure as was yesterday passed by tlio senate -
ate , but the impression has gained ground that
ho would not give it his approval ; that ho
believes absolute frco coinage would result in
the United States becoming tlio dumping
ground for the surplus silver of the world.
Sentiment has changed so rapidly in Wash
ington that it is impossible at this time to
forecast with any degree of certainty the
ultimate action on the question of silver coin
age. The failure of the free coinage men to
show their strength on Mr. iilaml's motion
for tlio commltteo to rise and report the bill
to the house was duo to a desire to gain time
for consultation , The republicans will hold
a caucus on the subject of silver probably to
It is stated tonight that Speaker Reed has
decided that the silver bill shall go to tlio
coinage committee. As this committee is op
posed to free coinage , it is expected that they
will materially amend the senate bill for the
purpose of bringing about n conference. Mr.
Heed is expected to appoint determined anti-
silver men as the house conferees , and unless
the house yields , as is usual , It is impossible
to foretell the result.
A DISU'rOINTMIIXTTO CIOAIIMAKKIIS.
Thcro will bo another disappointment nnd
surprise among eigarmakers when they learn
that at the last moment the Semite commltteo
on finance refused to reduce , the duty fixed
by the MeKinloy bill upon leaf tobacco used
for wrappers. The McKinley bill fixed tlio
duty at $2 a pound for unsteinmcd and $2.75
for stemmed tobacco. This was douo at the
Instance of the growers of Connecticut to
bacco and is a movement against the use of
Sumatra wrappers , which form the outside
of nearly all our domestic cigars. The senate
committee promised to strike out tlio increase
proposed by the McICinloy bill and leave the
duty us at present , and the delegates from
the eigarmakers1 unions in Key West , New
York and other cities returned to their nonius
some weeks ago believing that there would
bo no increase in the duty on Sumatra wrap
pers. For some unknown reason the senate
committee at last agreed to let the duty ro-
inaiu as fixed In the MeKiuloy bill , and thus
it will become a law. The senate committee
struck out all of the reductions of internal
tax upon tobacco , which were very light , in
the McKinley bill , embracing as they did
only tlio special stamp features. Hctailcrs
and others are to pay present licenses and
taxes under the senate bill.

The Stuudiu'd thinks that the East African
settlement with Germany , while nothing to
boast of. gives England nothing for which
she need blush. It Is not the ideal solution
of the problem , but perhaps It Is as good as
was reasonable to expect. German friendship
is n valuable asset , and llko other precious

The Standard's llorlln oorroipamlent says
