APPROPRIATION BILLS IN DANGER
The Snndry Civil and Consular Meas
ures 3Iay Either Fail to Pass
or Be Vetoca.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 24. Tomorrow the
house enters upon the last week of its
session, and the usual rush which charac
terizes the closing: hours of every session
of congress will begin. Under the rules
the last six days of every session are sus
pension days, and members recognized
may call up bills and have them acted on
under suspension of the rules. There are
331 public bills on the calendar, 217 of
which must be considered in committee of
the whole and 111 on the regular calendar.
In addition to these there are over 5C0
bills on the private calendar. Of course,
only a very insignificant percentage of
these bills can be passed, but the press
for precedence will be terrific, and many
exciting scenes are almost sure to occur.
It is quite probable that several night
sessions will be held, and it is almost cer
tain that congress will remain in con
tinuous session from Saturday until Mon
day next, on which day congress expires
by limitation at noon.
The regular appropriation bills are un
usually well advanced, so far as the bouse
is concerned, only one the deficiency be
ing unacted upon, and it will go to the
senate tomorrow. The two which are con
sidered dangerous, that is, liable to fail or
be vetoed, are the sundry civil and the dip
lomatic and consular. To the former the
senate committee on finance has reported
amendments' for 3-per-cent coin bonds,
with a provision requiring the secretary
of the treasury to advertise for bids in
case of a bond issue. To the diplomatic
and consular bill the senate has added
amendments for the Hawaiian cable. If
these provisions prevail, despite the pro
test of the house, it is thought that Presi
dent Cleveland may veto them. The com
mittee on Pacific roads is preparing for an
opportunity to secure a vote on the fund
ing bill, as amended, and the committee
on public buildings is insistent on its de
mand for a chance to settle the question
of a printing-office site, which has been
hanging Are for several years. It is prob
able that the committee on rules will give
both time during the coming week. In case
opportunity offers. As a whole, the week
promises to be both interesting and ex
citing. The senate programme for the ending
of the session is to follow the sundry civil
bill, the consideration of which will begin
tomorrow, with the legislative, executive
and judicial bill, and then to take up the
naval bill, and, lastly, the general defl-
dcrstood that there will probably be'sp'as
modic attempts to get up other measures
of general importance, the best opinion is
that none of these will be successful in
cases where there is objection. It Is pos
sible that Butler will renew his efforts in
behalf of the pooling bill, and that George
will again attempt to restore the bank
ruptcy bill, but it is not in the least prob
able that the efforts of either will be suc
cessful. Faulkner is also hopeful of se
curing brief consideration of the territo
rial admission bills, but there is no longer
a possibility of passing the bills. An or
der has already been made for a night
session Tuesday for consideration of bills
to which there are no objections.
The probabilities include night sessions
every night after Tuesday, continuing
virtually through the nights of Saturday
and Sunday, and also a session next Sun
day during the day. These, it is believed,
will be held to dispose of the appropria
tion bills, there being many provisions in
those remaining to be considered which
may lead to prolonged debate. There is
also a probability of debate over the next
report of the conference committee on the
diplomatic bill, Involving the appropria
tion for the Hawaiian cable. There is
not much in the legislative bill to lead to
debate, but the others all contain provis
ions which, if they are -not withdrawn,
are sure to cause sharp debate. It is in
timated that the certificate amendment to
the sundry civil bill may be withdrawn.
If it is, this will simplify the situation,
but there will be material for many
speeches and resolutions for prolonged
sessions. The senators, however, do not
consider the outlook discouraging, and
they predict that the bills will all be
passed by the time fixed by the constitu
tion for adjournment, March 4.

The commissioner of internal revenue

lectors of internal revpnue, calling their
attention to the joint resolution which
recently passed both houses of congress
and received the approval of the presi
dent, extending to April 15 the time within
which all income tax returns shall be
made. This resolution was passed at the
suggestion of Commissioner Miller, of tho
internal revenue bureau, who, in his let
ter to congress, stated that the unexpected
delay in passing the appropriation bill
for the collection of the income tax had
so shortened the time that it would be
quite impossible to distribute the blanks

the date fixed in the original act. The
extension was made purely in the interest
of the taxpayers, who otherwise, through
no fault of their own, might be subject

Walker, of the Schooner Xoriua, Sent
Out of Ha-n-nii.
SAN FRANCISCO, Eeb. 24. Among the
arrivals on the .steamer Gaelic from Hono
lulu was F. D. "Valker, of the schooner
Norma, who, according to the stories
circulated, was aslted to leave the republic
for the republic's jgood. Mr. Walker de
nies this and tells a tale of how he left
on commercial business. Walker was
originally from "Vlcforla, B. C, and went
to the islands firstffome five or six years
ago. There have iheen suspicions for a
long time that hejas engaged In opium
smuggling from British Columbia to Ha
waii, and not long ago the Norma was
believed to have unloaded a lot of arms
for the revolutionists at one of the islands.
As Walker made frequent trips back and
forth the government considered it had
a strong case against him. Soon after
the recent attempt to restore the queen,
Mr. Walker was preparing to sail for
Victoria on the Warrimoo. At the last
moment he was asked to see the marshal,
and when he did so,his passport was taken
up. At this, so Walker stated, he went to
see President Dole? and then Attorney
General Smith. Both were absent, how
ever, and he obtained little satisfaction
from subordinates Then he went to
BriUsh Consul Hawes, but Hawes told
him It was a timof war, and he ob
tained little satisfaction from him. The
upshot of it was that he was detained till
the government could look into his case,
and then he was jseht word that he was
to be deported. J
Walker says thalfhe was not deported,
but there are intimations that that is
about what it amounted to. Walker's
story is that he dftl not really own the
Norma, but that she was "in his name,"
while In fact MrrRowell, of Honolulu,

terday Common Pleas Judge Jacob F.
Slagie forwarded to President Dole a
petition for delay in the execution until
he can lay before the Hawaiian govern
ment evidence that will show that Seward
was an Intense supporter of the republican
form of government, and could not have
been identified with any movement to
aid the restoration of a monarchy. Judge
Slagle's brother, G. W. Slagie, is a
brother-in-law of Seward.
The petition recites Major Seward's his
tory; his praiseworthy services to this
government during the civil war; his constantly-expressed
love for a republic, and
ends with a prayer for delay in the exe
cution until further papers can be for
warded. The petition is signed by nearly
100 well-known Pennsylvanlans, Includ
ing clergymen, politicians, lawyers and
judges. It is believed by Judge Slagie
that the death penalty will not be in
flicted upon Seward. Confidence Is based
on Judge Slagle's visit to Washington a
week ago. While there he saw Secretary
Gresham, Senator Joseph R. Hawley and
Minister Thurston. All promised aid. It
is learned here that assurances have been
given that no death sentence will be car
ried Into effect until an expression can
be had from other governments.
It is said that the charge of treason on
the part of Seward consists In allegation
that he made a visit to San Francisco and
purchased 10,000 rifles and ammunition,
Ja-hich he had transported to Honolulu for
use of the Insurrectionists, at the instiga
tion of J. A. Cummins, the wealthy sugar
planter, ex-Chief Justice H. A. Wlde
mann and Samuel Parker, the half-white
premier under the old monarchy. The
papers in his defense will assert that if
he did so he did in the interest of the
republic, fearing that a secret intrigue
would overthrow it.

NEW YORK, Feb. 24. Samuel D. Hor

died in Washington tonight of Bright's
disease. Ten days ago Mr. Horton came
to the city at the request of leading mem
bers of the administration for consulta

stricken by the disease, from which he
had long suffered.
(Samuel Dana Horton was a native of
Ohio. He was born in 1844, and was a son
of Valentine Horton, formerly a member
of congress from Ohio. He was graduated
from Harvard in 1864, resided for a time
in Pomeroy, O., and has of late years
lived most of the time abroad in England
and the continent, where he was perhaps
better known than in America. He had
written much for the magazines upon
financial questions. His best-known books
were "The Silver Pound," published In
London in 18S9, and "Silver in Europe,"
published in 1S92. Mr. Horton was a dele

He attended the public schools, was ap

July 10, 1S59. When the civil war broke
out, two years later, he was appointed
successively lieutenant-colonel and then
colonel of the Second New York volun
teers for meritorious services. He fought
with conspicuous bravery at Bristow's
station and Nehantllly, and at the battle
of Fredericksburg. At Chancellorsville,
May 3, 1863, he assumed command of the
division after General Barry's fall. At
Gettysburg he refused to leave the field,
but stood by the small remnant of his
troops after his horse had been killed
under him and he himself had been in
jured by the fall. In October, 1863, he was
given command of the Third division of
the Fourth corps. Later he was assigned
to the Fourth division of the Twentieth
corps, and finally to the First corps, with
charge of the defenses of the James river.
-He. was breveted major-general June JL4,

BRADFORD, Pa., Feb. 24. John P.
Zane, who died at his home here yester
day morning, was one of the best-known
men in Northern Pennsylvania.
(J. P. Zane was born in Bridgeport, N.
J., in 1826. His ancestors were among the
pioneers of New Jersey. In 1851 Mr. Zane
became Imbued with the gold fever and
went to California by way of the isthmus.
His life on the coast at this period was
a stirring one. He was a member of the
vigilantes when John W. Geary, after
ward mayor of San Francisco and gov
ernor of Pennsylvania, was the grand
organizer. Mr. Zane was a delegate from
California to the republican national con
vention that nominated Abraham Lincoln
for president. In July Lincoln appointed
him appraiser of the port of San Fran
cisco. Soon after assuming his office he
ascertained that the French importers of
wine were sending cargoes of wine Into
this country falsely labeled, and cheating
the government out of thousands of dol
lars. He promptly put a stop to this and
raised a storm of opposition from the im
porters. They charged that Mr. Zane
used wines belonging to the government
to influence voters in the legislature, and
wanted him removed. Mr. Zane's reply
to this charge greatly amused the presi
dent. It was that the appraiser was re
quired by law to sample all wines in
voiced. Not being a judge of wine him
self, he delegated that duty to some one
else, and he knew no one so capable of
judging as the members of the legislature.
Lincoln declined to remove him. Mr.
Zane received the first charter for a street
railway granted by the California legis
lature, and built the first street railway
in San Francisco. He came East in the

oil business attracted his attention. He

THE DEATH OF DOUGLASS.
Just What Action AVa Taken by the
Legislature of North. Carolina.
RALEIGH, N. C, Feb. 24. There is wide
misunderstanding over a so-called Doug
lass adjournment by the general assembly
of North Carolina, and in connection with
It there have been statements which do
not present the matter accurately. The
actual facts are as follows:
The day after the death of Frederick
Douglass a colored representative named
Crews offered a resolution providing that
the house adjourn at 12 noon, as a mark
of respect to Mr. Douglass. Mr. Crump
tor, a populist, offered an amendment to
make the hour 2 o'clock, which was the
regular hour of adjournment. Speaker
Walser ruled the amendment and resolu
tion both out of order, saying that the
house would not adjourn until the busi
ness of the day was disposed of. He
then suggested that a motion might bo
made that when It did adjourn, it would
be as a mark of respect. A standing vote
on a motion to this effect was taken and
carried: The senate branch of the legis
latuare took no notice whatever of the
death of Douglass.
Frederick Donglasi His Test.
NEW YORK, Feb. 24. Rev. Dr. Louis
E. Banks delivered a discourse in Hanson
place Methodist church tonight on "Fred
erick Douglass; the Eloquent, the Most
Picturesque Historical Figure in Modern
Times." He said In part:
"If I were asked what person in the
present century had fought against the
greatest odds and won in the struggle of
life at most points, I should answer Fred
erick Douglass. There is a great deal of
talk about self-made men in our time,
and we hear an abundance of eloquence
concerning Abraham Lincoln's rise from
the place of rail-splitter to the presidency;
of Grant's career from the tannery to the
position of first American citizen, and
Garfield from the towpath to the White
House, but none of these had to make
life's race with such a handicapping or
facing such odds as Frederick Douglass.
A career like that of Douglass Is at once
an honor and an Inspiration to humanity.

HOW M'BRIDE STANDS
The Last National Republican
HE HAS EYERYIFAITH IN HIS PARTY
And Says That the Republican Res
toration "Will Give General Pros
perity to Our Industries.
SALEM, Feb. 24. United States Senator
elect George W. McBride was seen today
and asked for an expression of his views
as to the financial question. He said.
"It Is evident that there is need of re
form in the financial system of the coun
try, and it is my belief hat such reform
must proceed upon the lines of the last
republican national platform. I believe
that a return to the republican policy of
protection is essential to the restoration
of the national finances to a healthy con
dition I am also confident that the re
publican party, when it secures control
of all the branches of "national gavern
ment, will salve the economic and finan
cial problems now before the country in
a way which will restore prosperity to
all the great industries of the nation."
Mr. McBride was urged to give his
views as to silver more in detail, but
would only add: "I do not think it neces
sary at this time to outline a specific
scheme of financial legislation which I
would'support. I do not wish to make
any expression which would limit my
entire freedom of judgment and action
upon such measures as may be proposad."
It is currently reported here that an
unsuccessful effort was made to get a
statement from Mr. McBride in favor of
the free coinage of silver; and that his
position Is that he is favorable to coinage
of silver co far as it can be coined with
out threatening the parity. This, of
courre, is substantially the doctrine of the
last republican platform. At least one
of the members of the legislature, who
was irrevocably opposed to any trifling
with free-silver fallacies, satisfied him
self that Mr. McBride was- sound on the
money question before he voted for him.
THE SENATORIAL ELECTION".
Result Was a Decided Snrprise to
Those in Washington.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 24. The news of
the election of G. W. McBride as senator
from Oresron was a great surprise to the
congressidal delegates from Oregon. Mr.
McBride, though well known in his state,
has never been in any way mentioned
for senator and it was supposed his health
would not permit him to be a candidate
for any office. He was in this city a
month ago on his way back to Oregon,
having undergone a surgical operation in
New York. In speaking of the matter to
night, Mr. Hermann said:
"I have known Senator McBride intl
Imately for years. IJe" was JjggoSipetlto7
of mine In 1SS4 before the republican con
vention for nomination to fcongi ess. Be
fore that he was a member of 'the legist
lature and speaker of the house of rep
resentatives. In 1SS6 he was elected secre
tary of state, and re-elected in 1890, serv
ing eight years. His term has just closed.
He has suffered so much from inflamma
tory rheumatism that he had practically
withdrawn from politics, and was not
elected to any office at the end of his term.
He is about 40 years of age and is not tall.
He Is of a very amiable disposition, of
refined appearance, and is liked by all
who know him. He comes of a distin
guished family. Ills father, Dr. McBride,
was Lincoln's minister to the Sandwich
islands in the early '60s. His brother,
John R. McBride, was the first repub
lican congressman from the state of Ore
gon. His mother's brother, W. W. Ad
ams, was collector of the port, and held
other Important positions. Senator Mc
Bride took no part in the recent senator
ial fight, and, I suppose, was elected as
a popular compromise candidate to pre
vent the legislature from failing to elect
and leaving the place vacant."

Be Severely Treated.

agency's correspondent in Tokio says the

in the present war, and were set free.
George Howie, the American who came
to the East with a scheme to blow up
Japanese vessels with submarine infernal
machines, has been detained aboard the
Japanese flagship, pending the decision of
his fate. The Japanese made a reserva
tion as to Howie in the articles of capitu
lation. They are inclined to treat him se-
verely, for he was let go on parole after
his arrest aboard the City of Sydney, yet
lost no time in breaking his word and
placing his services at the disposal of the
The Japanese marines who were killed
in the early torpedo attacks on the Chi
nese fleet at Wei-Hal-Wei were buried
with military honors.
The Japanese reports speak highly of
Admiral Ting and the orders which he
wrote, just before his suicide, to direct the
course of his officers In completing the
arrangements for the surrender.
The Central News correspondent In Hai
Cheng telegraphs, under date of February
21, that Lieutenant-General Katsura then
reported the Chinese force, which former
ly held Kyan Wat Sa, had retreated to

Kung Ton and Sa Tai Su were about 5000
strong and had 12. guns. At Kung Peln
Tas the Chinese had some 1000 men. The
garrisons at New Chwang and YIng Kow
seemed to have been decreased.
The Central News correspondent in Pe
king says high officials there express the
hope that Li Hung Chang's appointment
to be peace envoy will be acceptable to
Japan. He will have full power to close
the negotiations without referring matters
to Peking. The time and place of the ne
gotiations have not been determined.
