The Post announces this morning that
negotiations which have been in prog

Brazil resulted in signing the agreement
(under recopricity clause, new tariff law)
by Secretary Blaine and Senor Mendon
ica, Brazilian minister. The agreement
has been approved by President Har
rison and a proclamation announcing
the fact will probably be made public
The free coinage republican senators
have decided that they will not press the
amendments offered yesterday to the
pension appropriation bill by Senator
Stewart in the shape of a free coinage
The reason for this decision is the fear
that sentimental considerations may
cause the loss of votes in cases where
senators and representatives have strong
soldier constituency. It is probable an
effort will be made to attach a free coin
age rider to some other general appropri
ation bill where the same factors would
not enter into the matter.

A HEROIC GIRL.
She Bravely Submits to Torture to
Benefit a Friend.
New York, Feb. 3. A remarkable
case of friendship was exhibited at
Bellevue hospital by a girl of 16, named
Delia Eagan, who is willing to be scarred
for life in the attempt to restore to
health her friend, Minnie E. Wilcke.
The latter was, about Christmas, caught
in the belting of a laundry, of which her
husband is proprietor. She had a head
of long, luxuriant hair, and the belting
glued her to the ceiling by her tresses.
For a few seconds she hung there and
then dropped to the floor. She had been
scalped completely. Everything was
done to adjust the torn flesh without
avail. One ear had fallen off entirely,
and the whole scalp had withered. By
January 10 Mrs. Wilke was completely
recovered otherwise, but her head was
one big sore. Her husband offered to
give flesh from his own body for grafting-
Preparations were made for the opera
tion last Wednesday, but by that time
the husband was . so broken down in
health by constant watching at his wife's
bedside that the doc-tor refused to take
him as a' subject. Then it was that
Delia Eagan came to the rescue. The
doctor.placed her under the influence of
ether, bared her limbs, and cut a strip
of skin a foot long and nearly three
inches wide from each of them. The two
strips of skin that were taken from. Delia
were then adroitly adjusted to the flesh
less head of Minnie. The surgeons glued
one of them into the front of the skull
and down on the side, and the other
they neatly affixed to the cranium just
above it. : Once more Mrs. Wilcke was
swathed in bandages, and the slow, ted
ious healing process was begun. Today
Delia was told that more skin would be
needed to cover her friend's skull, and
she Baid she might as well spare some
more. "I. hope, though," she said,
'the doctors will take the rest off my
back somewhere. I can sleep on my
face, and the sores won't hurt so much
A LONG EIGHT EXPECTED.
Argument In the Davis Will Case Soon
to be Commenced. -
Helena, Feb. 3. Argument on the
writ of prohibition and writof mandam
us in the Davis estate case -will be
heard in the supreme court ia the morn
ing. The alleged Davis will was called
up for probaie in the district court of
Silver Bow county yesterday, when con
testing heirs applied to the supreme court
for the writs which were issued and
made returnable tomorrow. H. A. Root,
nephew of the deceased millionaire, who
represents the heirs who a.-e endeavor
ing to prove the Jowa Vfi'l of 18(i6 a for
gery, made affidavit to the effect that the
will is a forged iiiblruiueiu, and was
never executed bv A. J. Davis ; that t!:e
jury is illegally drawn; that jmws
attendance are biased. He makes the
further strong assertion that the judge of
the district court of Silver Bow comiiy is
prejudiced against the interests of the
contestants. Another affidavit filed for
consideration of the supreme court is
that three hundred names were not
drawn by a jury commission as provided
by law. Colonel R. G. Ingersoll is in the
city, leing retained as counsel for con
testants H. A. Root and others. Judge
Trimble, of Iowa, Judge Wool worth, of
Omaha, and Congressman Dixon, of this
state, will defend the interests of John
A. Davis, who is named as sole legatee
in the w ill. The fight will be a long and
bitter one, and it will be a long time be
fore any of the heirs to this vast estate
receive any portion of it.
Inhuman Conduct of Chinese Near
San Francisco, Feb. 4. By the
steamer Gaelic, which arrived this eve
ning from Hong Kong and Yokohama, it
is learned that at the court of inquiry
into the loss of the steamer Shanghai,
reported in these dispatches last Thurs
day night, the chief engineer in his testi
mony stated that at the time of the fire a
number of native craft were in sight, but
rendered no assistance. Men in boats
dragged some of the passengers off the
paddle wheels to which they had floated,
robbed them of all they - had, and then
dropped them into the water. There
was a Chinese steam launch flying the
imperial flag and gunboat under sail, but
neither of them offered assistance to the
drowning people or those still on the
burning ship. .. The court found that
Captain Martin , his officers and the crew
made every possible effort to save the
passengers, and that no blame was at
tributable to them.

Boise City, Idaho, Feb. 3. The senate
passed the memorial praying for the
allotment to Indians in severalty the
lands' at Fort Hall and Cceur d'Alene
reservations. The high license bill has
passed by a vote of 10 to 6, was slightly

Washington, Feb. 5. In the senate
today Ingalls made a personal statement
as to his attitude on the clqture rule and
election bill, which subjected him to se
vere comment. He was unalterably
opposed to the adoption of this cloture

peared to him to be cumberous compli
cated, obscure, and difficult of applica

How a Man Paralyzed His Arm.
C. Hagermann, a resident of Morris
ville, has lost the use of his right hand
in a singular manner. He went to bed
as usual one night a week ago, and fell
asleep with his right hand under his
head. On awakening in the morning he
could not raise his -arm. It was par
alyzed, and all efforts thus far to put the
blood in circulation have failed. It is
thought it will be months before he will
be able to use his hand again. Philadel
