Objection wa ? made to this and Attorney

fair. Ho bcld that no charge- was mudo that
Uoyd wns a party to the conspiracy.
Mr , Harwood Insisted that the Issue nnd
contest was whether Mr. Powers or Mr.

I vote tlio straight republican ticket. I
didn't vote the county ticket. I am an Amor-
Jena , I didn't want to vote for persons not
Americans. I didn't stop to look at the names

J wns cursed. I wns called by muny unpleas
ant names when I was talking to some la
dles , 1 was told that I had no business there.
Threatening and Improper language wns
used , I was pushed upon the ladles , not violently
lently , but disordqrly , very. The crowd wns
shoved against us , I mean. There wns ono
I policeman present. Ho did not , to my knowl
edge , arrest anybody. I wns present through
I' a spirit of friendship toward the prohibition
Cross-oxnminntlon : I was not hurt except
In my feelings. I voted the republican ticket
nnd for tbo amendment. There was some
'Interference in ono voto. An old man , I don't
know his name , wanted to vote the repub
lican ticket and for tbo amendment. I fixed
his ticket for him. Ho reached tlio polls with
irrcnt ditllculty , The crowd tried to confuse
I him nnd make him bcllovo bo had the wrong
ticket. I saw nobody that day who wished
to vote for Mr. Powers who was interfered
with from so voting , In the afternoon I
returned to tbo polls. Had I "suspected I
would have been killed 1 would
not Imvo returned. Tno man who threat
ened rae shook his lists In my face , but did
nothing more. I was not afraid. 1 saw no
body driven from the polls. Nobody was
treated so violently ns I \ \ \ \ * , although a num
ber were treated somewhat ai I was. My
belief Is that tlio violence ) grow not out of
the feeling concerning the candidates , but
concerning the matter of prohibition.

WASIIIXOTOX , Dec. fi. In the house Mr.
Mtcucon of Michigan called up the senate
olnt resolution authorizing the Bccrotary of
vnr to Issue 1.000 stand of arms to each ot
ho states of North and South Dakota ,
iV'voinhifj und Nebraska. On motion of Air.
Sartor of Montana , Montana was Included hi
ho provisions of the joint resolution , which
vns then passed.
The house wont Into comtnlttoo of the
vholo on the pension appropriation bill.
Mr. Outhwaltoof Ohio referred to yester
day's talk about the commissioner of pen
sions and criticised the conduct of that
ofllcer In the recent campalen.
Mr. Cutchcon suggested that Commissioner
Hade had taken part In congressional clee-
Mr. Outhwnlto replied that It Ulack hnd
done such things nt Hnuiu hnd done ho
should liavo been brought to Justice. IIo
-hen proceeded to reproach the republican
muse with shirking IU duty , arguing that
tlio pending bill would show a deficiency of
ovcr$3JUOiOJl ) ) .
Mr. Henderson of lowasnld the deficiencies
md begun when the democrats cnmo Into
control uml cut the appropriations so short
.bat during tlio lost vear there was a de-
Iclency of ? 25,000.000 ,
Mr. Dockory said that a few months ago ho
stood on tills floor and declared that the re
publicans were refusing for purtv purposes
to appropriate within ? l.r > ,000,000 ot the
imount required for pensions under the ex
isting law. This declaration was nlmostHUb-
stantlutcd by the fact that the commissioner
io\v came asking for a deficiency of $11,500-
JOO. Mr. Dooitery then branched into a dis
cussion of the general financial condition of
the country , presenting tables to show that
there will bo n dolictieacy July 1,181)2 , of over
* S7.SOu,000 , and said this did not Include nny
deficiency for the fiscal years 18U1 or 1SW ex
cept the tnnalon deficiency.
Mr. BrcckenrulB'o ot Kentucky said this
was not n question as to' whether
the nrescut commissioner had taken
l > art In the recent campaign or whether
the former commissioner was guilty of tlio
charges made against him. The point was
that the probabilities are that within seven
years there will bo 1,000,000 pensioners on
the rolls , who will bo paid ? ITO,000,000 nnnu-
ally. The first necessity wns to meet the
question franicly by adcqueto appropriations ;
the second was to raise a committee to In
vestigate the bureau thoroughly , have tlio
list revised and strike oil unworthy pension
ers ; the third was to transfer the bureau to
the war department and take It out of tlio
domain of polities. Iloro were the i > ooplo
struggling under burdens that had so dis
tressed them that they wcro seeking now
alliances. Lot congress meet the matter
Mr. Peters of Kansas made an exhaustive
argument to sbow that the appropriation
carried by the bill was amply suftlcicnt.
Tlio democratic party was nlway- flooded
with tears in behalf of the sol
dier when it was out of power , but
when it was In power It was quite n different
thing. The democratic party was endeavor
ing to embrace the farmers' alliance move
ment. IIo conceded that the republican party
In Kansas had run against this movement nnil
received n black eyo. Unt the time was com
ing when n cyclone would strike the demo
cratic states. The republican party would
revive because "truth crushed to earth will
rise again. " Ho wanted the Klfty-sccond
congress to pass the sub-treasury bill , the
frco coinage bill and the service pension bill ,
and unless his democratic friends would do
all that tliov would find that thuwave , of the
farmers' alliance would wipe them froin the
face of tbo earth.
In concluding the debate Mr. Morrow of
California agreed that the'amount carried by
the bill wns nil , if n'ot moro than all ; that
would bo required by the pension bureau
during the coming year.
On motion of Mr. Dockery an amendment
was adopted providing that no agent or at
torney shall demand , receive or bo allowed
any compensation on a claim for an Increase
of pension on account of increase of disabil
ity. It is estimated that this will save
? Ti,000,000 to pensioners within the next three
Mr. Springer offered an amendment In
creasing to $150,000OtX , ) the appropriation.
There was no excuse , ho said , for n republi

tion and throw the deficiency on a democratic
After further debate the committee rose ,
the bill was passed and the house adjourned.

WASHINGTON , Deo. 5. The president today
transmitted to the house the correspondence
growing out of the killing of General Bar-
rundm by the Guatemala authorities , In his
first letter to Secretary Blalno , under date ot
August 20 , In regard to the killing , Miznor
alludes to his telegram to Captain Pitts , In
forming him that under tbo law of nations
Guatemala had a right to take from u neutral
ship la Guatemalan waters in time ot wai
any person for nny cause deemed nn offense
under international law. IIo further ln <
formed Captain Pitts that allegations had
been made to the legation that Barriindla
wns hostile to Guatemala. Guarantees" had
bocn made to him ( Mizncr ) that Harrundlu's
life should not bo In danger for the causes
charged. Ml/nor says that ho received n
telegram from Commander Itoltcr of the
United States ship Thetis , acknowledging
Guatemala's right over the steamer and
requesting Mlzucr to obtain permission from
the government to return Darrnndla to Moxlcc
In the Thetis. The minister of foreign rolfc
tions positively declined to accede to this re-
nuost. All thu circumstances nnd Itarruu-
diu's well known hostility to Guatemala und
attempted Invasion from Mexico , .Ml/net
suyu , decided his course , and ho accordingly ,
In response to u request for written , not tuUv
graphic orders , sent CapUilu Puts a lottci
advising him to submit to the arrest of bis
passenger. Tbo following duy Commando )
Ueltnr telegraphed Darrundla's death. Mlz <
nor says ho afterwards called on the inlnlstei
of foreign relations for an explanation of the
affair. In this Interview the uilnistci
stated with emphasis that Guato
mala had Riven positive orders to
take Barniiillmrotn , the Aciiptilco ,
oven to Inking' iha ship , notwithstanding
It might linvn- involved n conflict with our
two war vessel ? then In the harbor.
The correspmid'ejico ' closes with n letter
from Socrotnrjrlilaltio to ( Aligner , under date
of November 1 ? , hi which the secretary says !
"Tho more thnfiiipstlon U examined In the

The secretary says : "Through MIzncr'sac
tion the nuvnl force of Iho United States hi

tor of events. A thorough merchant vessel
the United States wns then lying under the
muzzle of the guns manned by men who , ns
you state , you had every reason to believe
were prepared to revolttonny nctof violence ,
even as the minister of foreign relations has
sliico declared , to sinking the ship. I am not
disposed , " continued Mr. HUdne , "to pay
iiiuluo regard to these post-fncto thioat.H. To

safety of Its merchant vessels entering the
waters of Guatemala by stationing uaval

of that country. "
Secretary Ulalno Informs Mizncr that If
Instead of accepting the lawless and turbu
lent condition of affairs as n ground of his
advice nnd consent to the surrender of Bar-
rundle ho had the basts of a suggestion of
Commander Roller to offer him hos
