WASHINGTON , Aug. 10. At 12:25 : p. m.
Senator Hill tried to obtain recognition to
offer a resolution calling for Information .as
to tlic status of the tariff conference , but was
temporarily crowded out by other buslncgi.
While the resolution of Mr. Hill was lying on
tlio table and had not been read , Mr. Qrajr
moved on executive session. Few senators
responded to'the viva vocc vote and Hill de
manded the jcau and nays. Several conserva
tive senators \otcd against the motion. Hill ,
Jlurphy , Pugh , Palmer and Gibson voted no.
Gorman , Ilrlce and Jones did not voto. Mr.
Vest voted no. The motion was lost yeas ,
21 ; nays , 32.
Senator IIIll'n resolution requested the sen
ate conferees to report to the senate the
principal Items of disagreement on the tariff
bill and as to whether an agreement was
likely to be reached.
Senator Harris stated that the main dis
agreement HUH on xugar , coal and Iron oro.
Objections wtru made to the consideration
of the resolution , as It lacked unanimous
Mr Hill Insisted that It was a proper mat
ter for the consideration of the senate at this
The vlco president decided that under the
rules the resolution must lie over for a day.
Senator Vest said ho was heartily In favor
of the resolution. "When It comes before
the senate tomorrow , " ho mild , "I shall
take occasion to make a statement b ° fore the
senate which can bo done without violation
of the confidence of the conference. It Is
time , I think , that the calcium light of truth
be shed on the work of the conferees ; that
the calumnies and falsa Issues which have
been heaped upon the conferees and cent
broadcast over the country be dispelled. With
this end In view I will , when the resolution
Is consldcicd tomorrow , speak nf the In
famous lies which have been Invented and
circulated as to the work of the conferees on
the part of the senate. "
Senator Hill suggested : "Perhaps the sen
ator would like to tree his mind now. "
"I'm ready at any tlmo , " declared Mr.
Mr. Alilrlcli of Hhodo Island executed a
flank movement by calling up a resolution
heretofore ottered by Senator Allen. It was
an unimportant resolution , but It gave Mr.
Aldrlch the Moor and ho claimed the Allen
resolution was morning business Ho moved
to strike out all after the word "resolved , "
and Insert the resolution of Mr. Hill.
Fierce opposition \vas made to the consid
eration of the resolution. Mr. Aldrlch said
the opponents were "trying to filibuster It
out of sight , when the country wanted the
Information. "
Mr. Mills objected that the amendment
\vas not germane to the resolution , which
was for the consideration of a bill for the
Issue of $50,000,000 treasury notes , which led
Itr. Hill to ask :
"Is the amendment not as germane as It
Is for a senator to discuss the Chinese ques
tion In a tariff speech ? "
Mr. Mills Insisted It would be a breach of
the rights of the house to direct Its conferees
to return the bill.
At 2 o'clock the resolution and all pertain
ing to It went over until tomorrow under
the rules , and the senate proceeded to the
consideration of executive business.
The senate remained In executive session
until 4:30 : p. m.f when It adjourned to to
morrow at 12 o'clock.
Milking I.Ui'ly Competition for
HID Anu'rlciin runners.
WASHINGTON , Aug. 10. The possibili
ties of the refrigerating system of transportIng -
Ing perishable articles of food arc set forth
in an Impressed fashion In n report to the
State department from Daniel Maratta ,
United States consul general at Melbourne.
By a scientific application of this system ,
as yet In Its infancy In the United States ,
the Australian producers , though more dis
tant from England by many thousand miles
than American farmers , arc able to main
tain a competition that grows more formida
ble every year. Tlio report makes It evi
dent that wo have to fear heavy Inroads
on 6ur long cherished British market for
pork and poultry and dairy products. The
consul general gives a description of the
Australian chilling system and some figures.
Ho shows that the butter product exported
during the last season amounted to $3,704-
736 , and will bo largely Increased. The
butter arrives In England In excellent con
dition and finds a ready market. Under tbe
direction of the Agricultural department
promising experiments are being made with
the sterilizing s > stem , which produces butter
that 'Will kfep perfectly In any climate.
Nearly all the export butter Is now produced
at central factories , and the farmers are paid
for their milk , not by measure , but by its
quality , or by Its results In pounds.of butter
This system is giving the most thorough
satisfaction. Considerable headway Is being
made In the manufacture of export cheese
under a bonus. The government Is also en
couraging the production and export of as
many as possible of the productions of the
soli , the principal of which are pork , poul
try , eggs , concentrated milk , green peas , etc.
Shipments by refrigerators have already
been made with promising results , and It has
been found that green fruits can bo put In
the market In good condition by using
aerated chambers.
Snnntor Hill Suys the Tlmn to Do Some ,
thlni ; Him Arrived.
WASHINGTON , Aug. 10. In explaining
Ills course today , Senator Hill said : "My
object In offering the resolution was to ox-
pcdlto the disposition of the tariff. Hvory
day's delay Is injurious to the business in
terests of the country , and tha bill should
bo disposed of at once one way or the other.
It has now been In conference committee
for over a. month , and further delay Is abso
lutely Inexcusable. The conferees ought to
know each others' minds by this time , and
if they cannot agree the fact of such a dis
agreement should bo reported to the two
houses , when. If no understanding can bo
reached upon n bill , congress should promptly
adjourn and glvo the country orest. _ We
have now been In ses.slgn for nearly a whole
year and have had umple opportunity to
legislate. A senator or member who does
not know exactly what ho wants to do on the
tariff question after all the time spent In
useless deliberation is unfit to represent
any constituency , Wo have deliberated
enough ; wo want action.
"Congress must arouse from Its lethargy
and should act In accordance with the public
sentiment and not lu defiance of It. Klther
pass the tariff bill at once or adjourn and go
homo. These are my sentiments , and 1
bolleva they are the sentiments of nlno-
tenths of the people of all parties. "

vene at Fort Omaha next Monday morning ,

President Lincoln and reiterated by Presi
dent Harrison , and because in violation of
army precedent. The War department af
firmed the finding of the court martial ,
holding that a soldier must under any cir
cumstances obey the command of a superior ,
but It remitted the uncxplred portion of
Cedarqulst's sentence , and ordered that
Major Worth should be tried by court mar
tial for violating the rule of the military
service mentioned.
The detail of tbe court Is as follows.

LINCOLN , Neb. , Aug. 10. ( Special to The
Bee. ) The troubles at South Omaha have
very probably settled In the negative the
question of holding at Burlington Beach an
encampment of the state militia for this
year at least. All arrangements had been
perfected , and the Indications were that the
proposed outing of the boys would bo a most
successful one , but by the time the strike
Is settled there will be no money. The
legislature made an appropriation of $25,000
for the Use of the guards. The object of
this , It Is presumed , was to provide funds for
the annual field exercises. There being no
other funds at the disposal of the guards ,
this will have to bo nearly exhausted in
providing transportation for the troops to
and from South Omaha , and providing for
their support while there.
Colonel Bills has been at the Lincoln all

have accepted my plans , they have con
curred In my suggestions , they have en
dorsed my administration , and In all this
have been approved by the faculty and by
the people of this state In a manner which
won my affection , quickened my energies ,
kindled my ambition , secured by loyaltj ,
and strengthened my determination to give
them the most elllclent and devoted service
God would grant me years and strength to
render. I feel that I have really but Just
lioKiin this service. The foundations are
only Just appearing above the ground To
turn from this now , and especially to turn
from this Just at the present In the midst
of financial stress and strain , to- put all
this In the hands of a stranger this would
seem faithlessness to duty , this would be
the desertion of my confreres and the people
ple of Nebraska. In an hour In which above
all others I might best serve them.

Just as It was discharged. The shot struck
his arm just below the elbow and shattered
both the upper and lower bones , and entirely
destroyed the elbow Joint. A few
of the shot grazed Mr. Cook's arm and the
flash singed his hair and moustache , so close
was the discharge to him. They drove to

Pratt of this place and Dr. Hlldreth of
Lyons , who at once decided that amputation
was necessary. They amputated the arm
about three Inches above the elbow. As

How the Drexel-Morgtin Trust Squeezed
the Railroad Lemon.
Its Orlglnnl riontliiff Debt of 817,000,000
linn Clint Iho Itonil Over 87,000,000
in llircn Venrii 1'orced Into
Itecclxcrs' Ilandt.
NEW YOItK , Aug. 10. ( Special to The
Bee. ) In August , 1891 , the Union Pacific
floating debt was exploited as aggregating
$20,000,000 , and was characterized as a moat
serious menace to the property. Eminent
financiers evolved the idea which developed
Into the trust now commonly known as the
Drcxcl-Morgan trust , and concerning which
there Is today considerable uncertainty as to
Its tlnal end. As stated , the debt was al
leged to be $20,000,000 , and as It was thought
that the company would need some extra
funds , provision was made for the Issuance
of $24,000,000 of notes , and these notes were
to bo secured by the pledge of every avail
able assets w hlch the company could gather
up. Into the trust thus formed were placed
securities with an aggregate face value of
$100,113,365 , and an estimated value of
$11,312.335. The trust was formed In Sep
tember , 1S91 , qnd by the end of that year , or
within three months of the formation , there
were Issued of the new notes US. 470.000 , and
these notes were turned over to creditors
to pay a debt of $17,140.000 , the difference
bctwcon these two amounts , or $1,389,750 ,
was exacted by the creditors as a discount
In advance. The total , or highest amount
of the notes that has been Issued , Is $18-
710,000. and of this probably at least $1,500-
000 represents the discount or bonus. The
result is that the Union Pacific made Its
creditors a present of $1,500,000 , and then
agreed to pay them tj per cent per annum ,
or 18 per cent during the three years , on
the. amount thus presented. Or , to place
tha facts differently , In 1891 the Union Pa
cific owed $17,200,000 ; In 1S94 , If no part
of the debt was redeemed In the mean
time. that debt \vould be $18,700,000 , making
the total payment at the end of the third
year $22.06rtooo. Thus , In three years the
bonus and Interest cost the company $ JSGfl-
000 , being an average of $1G22,000 per an
num , and representing an annual cost
equaling 9'i per cent of the original debt.
Judging from the enormous sacrifice which
the company made , by thus submitting to
the extortion of almost 10 per cent Interest ,
one might suppose that the security offered
was \ery poor , and that the company had
been forced by dire distress to seek help from
a Shylock. It Is therefore somewhat sur
prising to find that the security was par ex
cellence. So good. Indeed , that after the
terrible depreciation which has taken place
in all securities during the past eighteen
months , such financiers as compose the com
mittee , viz : Messrs. Morgan , Stewart ,
Kiug. Anderson and Orr , declare that the
collateral Is today more than adequate for
the ultimate liquidation of the outstanding
uotes. As a matter of fact , ( hero never wus
a time during the history of this trust but
what the collateral was so much more valua
ble than the face of the notes , as to entitle
It to the classification of "gilt-edge , " and
consequently deserving of a very low. In
stead of a very high rate of Interest. When
the first $18,170,000 of notes were Issued , to
pay aboul a $17.000,000 debt , the value of the
collateral was $11,912,835. In August , 1893 ,
when the notes had been reduced to $11-
400,000 , the value of the collateral was $24-
663,910 , or more than double the debt. It
is clear , therefore , that not only has the
floating debt been well paid for In Interest ,
but It has been most excellently protected
as to principal.
But the bonus and Interest paid by the
Union Pacific do not cover the total cost of
the debt , for there have been some heavy
sacrifices of value In the sales of collateral ,
the proceeds of which sales were used to re
duce the outstanding notea. During 1893
the Union Pacific suffered a net loss of
$926,630 , by reason of the collateral being
sold for that much less than It had actually
cost the company. That Is to say , collateral
for which the Union Pacific paid almost
? 5,000,000 , was sold under this trust for
about $1.000,000. Possibly the entire loss
Incurred in the process of liquidating the
$7,000,000 notes that have been paid , ag
gregate not less than $2,000,000 , and In that
event the original debt of $17,000,000 has
cost the Union Pacific upwards of $7,000,000
In three years , or about 14 per cent per
annum. Perhaps no one is surprised that
a receiver was necessary under such condi
tions ,
What Is the condition of this trust today ?
There are $11,000,000 of the notea still out
standing. They are drawing G per cent
interest , but are now -overdue. The Inter-
estT however , Is being paid by the receivers ,
and , moreover , that Interest Is being paid
in advance month by month. In view of
this list named circumstance and also in
consideration of the fact that the collateral
Is deemed ample , the committee , a majority
of whom are creditors who hold the notes ,
advise that note holders do not press the
payment of the principal at present. This
committee has almost unlimited powers of
sale , and can close out the trust estate at
no matter what risk to the company , If It
so elect. Due- credit must be given to those
who thus counsel at this time , for a forced
sale of some of the stocks In the trust
would In all probability result In the loss
of control by the Union Pacific of some of
Its branch lines. Not that this would bo
much of a pecuniary loss to the Union Pa
cific Hallway company , but It would cause
endless confusion and entail future losses
on the system. On the other hand , there
are some very valuable stctirltles In the
trust , such as the Pacific Express , and If
these were to bo sold out before the Union
Pacific reorganl/atlon committee is ready to
buy them In the company would suffer
serious loss , although the note holders
would doubtless be paid In full.
In regird to the cost of the loan It must
bo noticed tint the notes can be bought up
sometimes at a discount , and so the cost bo
reduced. For Instance , for Hie notes re
deemed In 1893 the amount paid by the
company was $87,998 less than the face
value. Thla amount was , however , de
ducted from the above figures , hence the re
sult Is changed but little by this Incident.
There Is , on the other baud , a large expense
upon the company for the payment of taxes
on the notes , tor all the expenses of the
trust , for commissions , for sales of collateral
and for attorney fees , etc , etc
The probable outcome will be an extension
of the debt until a reorganization committee
can take bold of the matter In proper shape ,
and then these notes will be cared for
either by the holders waiting and participat
ing In the plan for reorganisation , or In
some syndicate taking them up to hold for
the reorganization committee In the mean
time the holders of the notes are getting
their Interest ; they have good security , and
have nothing to fear from any danger of
the loan being declared Illegal. J. II. W.
