NO RESULTS AT YESTERDAY'S CONFERENCE
V lillo Jlolh Brim to nnd Ilotno Conferee !
8ay They Will Not Yield They Will
Hold Anolhor Conference Today
to Tulk It Over.
WASHINGTON , July 30. For the first
< lmo since the tariff bill has been In con *
fcrcnco there were signs of wavering In the
atrong line that has stood behind the senate
"Senate bill or none" has been repeated
during the day , but less frequently and
with less cmnhasl.i than heretofore. The
only explanation for the brief conference
today Is the fact the house conferees feel
the situation Is changing In their favor.
There nro many reasons advanced to show
thin statement has a good foundation. It
Is known the malls and the telegraph nro
bringing to the democratic senators urgent
appeals to pass a bill which will not favor
the trusts mid which will bo In line with
the demands of the party platform. In fact
these requests upon the senators ore en
dorsements of the position of the president
and the houss in the main points of dif
ference. That these telegrams are having ef
fect cannot b > denied and they have caused the
senators who are most Insistent upon the sen
ate bill as regards coal , Iron ore nnd sugar
110 little concern. The house members also
llnd considerable comfort In their analysis
of the speeches made by the democratic
senators when the conference disagreement
was before the senate. In which they find
that but one democrat besides Mr. Hill made
miy pledge of his vote and that was Senator
Caffery , who declared It the Louisiana sugar
Interests were not protected he would not
vote for the bill. None of the other sena
tors. It Is claimed , burned the bridges be
hind them ; none of them declared abso
lutely that they would vote against the bill
If the one-eighth differential on sugar was
not retained or If the duty on Iron ore and
coal was stricken out. But more than this
many of the senators declared their desire
to obtain n bill which would secure forty-
three democratic votes. It Is pointed out
that none of these senators , not even Mr.
Caffery , have placed themselves In a posi
tion In which they cannot support a bill If
It Is returned without a differential protec
tion to the sugar refiners and with coal and
iron ore on the free list.
PRESSURE ON THE SENATORS.
It Is known that a great deal ot pressure
Is being brought to bear on the democratic
conferees of the senate to report nn agree
ment with modifications of the principal
Items , a compromise being suggested to
the extent of n Hat ml valorem rate on sugar
of 45 per cent , with an extension of the
bounty to January 1 , 1895 , free Iron ore ;
coal , 40 cents u ton , with a reciprocity pro
vision that coal shall be admitted free from
such countries as grant free admission to
coal produced In the United States. While
this proposition has not been submitted
with nnv assertion that It Is an ultimatum
of the house conferees , there Is a great deal
of talk that such a proposition Is likely
to bo presented. This , It is believed , will
secure the votes of the Louslana senators
the two populists , Allen and Kyle , and
Irby of South Carolina. In that event It
would take three other democratic senators
besides Hill to defeat the bill , and the
house members declare the number cannot
It Is a fact the situation , turning ns It
does on those lines , has caused considerable
uneasiness among the democrats lot .the
senate , and especially those who are known
to be steadfast In their demands for the
senate bill In Us main features. The re
liance of the house upon outside pressure
nnd the democratic sentiment that seems
to be rallying around the president and the
house from the country at large It Is claimed
will grow stronger from day to day until
the senate conferees will be compelled to
yield. The prestige which the administra
tion obtained over the unconditional repeal
of the silver purchasing law has been
pointed out as being evidence of a deter
mination now , with the solid backing of
the democratic leadevs In the house , to bring
about a similar result on the tariff bill.
CONFERENCE WAS SHORTLIVED.
The tension between the senate and the
house was as marked t\f tlio close of the
session today as It has been at any tlmo
previous. The dcmocratio members of the
conference found themselves In a complete
deadlock when they mot during the fore
noon nnd the full conference called for 1
o'clock found Itself without business before
it convened. The full conference did not
continue to exceed fifteen minutes and the
proceedings consisted In n state
ment by the democrats to the
republicans that the democratic con-
forces had been unable to reach an under-
fltandlng nnd a suggestion on the part of
Chairman Wilson of the house conferees
that the conference adjourn subject to the
call of the chairman , which suggestion was
acquiesced In by the republicans.
The Impression which ex-Speaker Reed
obtained of the situation was embodied In a
rouch diagram which ho drew while the
conference was In session , which represented
the senate as u locomotive rushing down a
steep grade under full steam. Stretching
across the track and directly In front of the
engine is an immense , well supported
bumper , which Is labeled "house , " the re
publican house conferees being represented
ns safely lodged In tall trees. "That Is the
situation , " ho said. "Wo all know what
must happen when Irresistible forces strike
nn Immovable object. " This Is as much n
statement of the situation as ctfuld bo ob
tained from any source.
Democratic members ot both houses ap
preciate to the utmost the extreme eravity
of the situation. The democratic senators
who will say anything on the subject say
that to all appearances the house conferees
nro as unyielding as they have bean at any
time. It Is stated that at the democratic
conference today the house members ap
peared oven moro determined that over to
maintain their position. Occasionally a
democrat could bo found on the senate side
who would express the hope the house con
ferees would content themselves with tlio
tacit demonstration of disapproval and sub
sequently ngrca to come to thu senate terms.
Conferences among democratic leaders In
the senate nnd between thcso senators nnd
democratic members of the house have been
frequent during the day since the conference
adjourned and they have been held with the
view of harmonizing the differences K possi
ble. The democrats will meet In formal con
ference agnln tomorrow.
Senator Vuorhees passed a very bad night
and was not able to attend the tariff con
ference today. The senator Is suffering from
a complication of troubles , nnd an operation
may bo necessary , though his condition is
such thai It might bo attended with con
Senator Vest has an attack of erysipelas ,
and his face for a day or two has been
badly swelled. Ho has been regularly at
wor , however , and Is at today's meeting ot
the tariff confeiecs.
The time for the democratic house caucus
lias been changed to Thursday. A report
today that members had withdrawn their
names from the petition numbers to cause
the caucus to be abandoned proved Incorrect.
Representative Urookslilro withdrew his
name on thu ground , It Is said , that Tuesday
was too early ,
MUST HAVE A HOUSE CAUCUS.
Representative Springer Is proceeding with
Ms petition for u house caucus on the tariff.
lie says the rqurt that the move for n can *
cus has been abandoned Is not warranted
and that ho was merely held In abeyance ,
"It may ba found desirable. " said he , "to
put off the time from Tuesday to Wednes
day In order to glvo the conference further
time to come together , but U It becomes ap
parent today that there Is a deadlock then
the caucus wilt be held tomorrow , "
Mr. Springer says a caucus ls altogether
desirable at the present time and that It
wilt be In the line ot precedent of caucus ac
tion always heretofore had during the pen
dency of a tariff bill.
"While the Mills bill was pending , " Bald
ho , "we caucused almost dally , In the pres
ent contest the democratic senators have been
caucusing constantly aud their present re
sistance Is tbe result ot caucus action In
which they agreed to stand together. It
Is rather singular , therefore , that there
should be any question ax to tin desirability
ot hftvliiK the house democrats get together.
\Vhn the bonking committee , of which I
am chairman , was considering the state bank
question , n caucus was called without con
sulting mo and a caucus resolution was
passed favoring a slate bank bill to which
I was opposed. But I took no exception to
that action , nor could there be exception tea
a move at any tlmo to get an expression
from the entire democratic representation
In the house. Certainly this sentiment Is
what should direct and guide the conferees
who act for the house , and In my Judgment
75 per cent of the democratic members ot
the house feel that way. "
Mr. Springer has been asked If he had con-
suted Speaker Crisp or Chairman Wilson as
to the caucus. To this he has answered
that he had consulted no one and did not
feel called upon to do so. Ho had pro
ceeded as a democratic member ot the house ,
In this way executing what was known to
be the Inclination of a very large proportion
of the democrats of the house.
Chairman Holrnan of the democratic
caucus committee says the only question as
to the caucus Is the date. Ho agrees with
Mr. Springer that the meeting may be put
off a day to permit the democratic conferees
to come together , though It would bo held
tomorrow If It Is clear that a deadlock ex
co/.i.s : uoomtv.

WASHINGTON , July 30. Mr. Gozo Ta-
tcno , the Japanese minister , presented his let
ters ot recall to the president today. He
was accompanied to the white house by
Secretary of State Gresham. There was
the usual exchange of speeches between the
president and the minister and the speeches
made clear the fact that the minister's recall
was In no way due to any friction between
the two governments or between the minis
ter and the diplomatic officers of the United
Mr. Tateno In taking leave of the presi
dent said : "In saying goodbye to you , Mr.
President , although the occasion Is not one
which rails for a formal utterance , I cannot
refrain from expressing to you my personal
appreciation of the unvarying kindness and
consideration for which I am Indebted to
you and to the honorable secretary of Mate.
I may be pardoned If I see In the treatment
that has been accorded me the evidence of
your desire to Increase the relations of cor
dial gaod will which exist between our coun
tries. For the perpetuation of thcso rela
tions I could wish no stronger guarantee
than Is to be found In the spirit manifested
on all occasions by yourself and the officers
of your government. "
In response , the president said : "Mr. Min
ister : You have resided so long at this
capital and your ofllelal duty has been so
well and so courteously discharged that you
have won the respect and esteem of those
among our people with whom you have been
associated and made your departure from
our country a matter of sincere regret. The
friendliness of the United States for Japan
has long been manifested by constant as
surances of good will , by our gratification
upon every advance your country has made In
the pathways of substantial development , and
by a desire for closer Intercourse between the
"You have been In a position to appre
ciate these sentiments , and , by your own
cordiality and zeal , you have ably contributed
to the harmonious feeling that exists. Mind
ful as you have always been ot the Interests
and policy of your own country and earnest
In upholding them , I am pleased to bear wit
ness to your conscientious fulfillment of your
task as well as to the personal courtesy
which has made your relations with this
government , most agreeable.
"I trust , Mr. Minister , that you will lose
no opportunity to make our friendly senti
ments known to your countrymen and that
you will assure your sovereign and his ad
visers ot the heartfelt wishes of the govern
ment and people of the United States for the
peace , prosperity and happiness of Japan. "
The retiring minister will leave with his
family tomorrow night for San Francisco ,
where ha will take the steamer Gaelic for
Japan. During the Interim between his de
parture and the arrival of the new minister ,
Mr. Mlyaoka , the secretary of the legation ,
will act as charge d'affalrs.

Two hours were spent In an attempt to
secure the adoption of a special order for
the consideration of Mr. McRae's bill to
protect public forest reservations , but the
republicans , by absenting themselves , suc
ceeded In forcing an adjournment.
Under the act of March 3 , 1893 , the presi
dent reserved public timber lands from sale
and disposal and set them aside for forestry
purposes. The total number of acres so re
served aggregated 15.5C4.800 acres and In
cluded lands In Alaska , Arizona , California ,
Colorado , New Mexico , Oregon , Washington
and Wyoming. The bill for which considera

tary of the Interior to sell under restrictions
not exceeding BO per cent of the timber of
commercial value on these reservations , to
regulate the occupancy of the same and pro

NEW YORK , July 30. The embalmed re
mains of Chlko , the big chimpanzee which
died In Dayton , O. , on Thursday last , lay In
state at the museum of natural history In
Central park yesterday. There were crowds
ot Sunday visitors to the park and the great
majority of them paid their respects to the
dead man-monkey of the jungles. The em
balming Iluld had done almost as much for
Chlko as It docs for a human being after
death In the preservation of his features.
Ho looked almost as natural as when the
blood , was coursing actively through his
veins and his chimpanzee brain was able
to form the sounds which Prof. Gamier de
clares are the distinct language of thu chim
Chtko looks moro human In death than
ho did In life. Laid out In his coflln , It ho
were dressed In coat and trousers and a
cloth1 thrown over his head everyone who
looked upon the figure would declare It to bo
that of a man.
There will bo llttlo of the dead chimpanzee
to bury after the scientists are done with
him. Yesterday he was photographed. To
day the work of taking off his skin will be
gin and as soon as the work Is completed
his bones will bo scraped and cleaned , and
arranged as they wc'rb'fn life , so that his
skeleton will bo preserved.
Tlio scientists regard Chlko as the nearest
approach to man eyp'q captured from the
forests , and very interesting results are an
ticipated from the examination ot his skull
and brains. _ j

MANCHESTER , N. H. , July 30. From C
o'clock yesterday afternoon until early this
morning this city was entirely cut oft from
the outside world by telegraph and telephone ,
a result of the most disastrous &torm that
has visited this section in years. At Lake
Massabeslc , four miles from the city , the
storm was accompanied by a cyclone which
wrecked buildings , blowing down large trees
and destroying much valuable property.
Shortly before G o'clock In the afternoon ,
when the thermometer registered 100 degrees
In the shade , the first storm struck. In
thirty minutes the mercury dropped 25 de
grees , n heavy haze settled over the city ,
the rain fell In torrents and for forty-flvo
minutes lightning played about the taller
buildings In the city and did much damage ,
several churches and residences being struck
and ono house set on lire.
At Lake Massabeslc the wind developed
Into a cyclone. Eighteen or twenty cot
tages were partially wrecked and halt that
number nearly demolished. The end of a
big dance hall was blown away and the en
tire section , about seventy by thirty feet ,
wrecked. The rest of the building was
moved from Its foundations and much dam
There were scores of pleasure boats on the
lake when the storm struck and It Is feared
that some ot them did not reach shore.
Two small steamers were unrooted , another
badly wrecked and half a dozen smaller
boats swamped. Numerous barns and out
buildings In the vicinity were demolished.
About 8 o'clock another shower deluged the
city and a high wind added to the damage ot
the afternoon , but the destruction of prop
erty was not so great.
At Goffstown during the first storm hall
stones as largo as walnuts fell and lightning
did considerable damage.
As far as can be learned no lives were
lost In this city , although several persons
were Injured , some seriously. The destruc
tion was so widespread In this section and
means Of communication are so completely
parlyzcd that the full extent of the damage
may not be known before tomorrow.

When the fight began Curry was talking
to Adjutant General O'Brien at the state

Curry responded with a blow In Box's face.
Then he threw oft his coat and tried another
round In his shirt sleeves. Box edged
away and Curry chased him to the head
of the stairs with his walking stick. The
light was the result of an old dlfllculty. Box
has been reduced to the ranks.
