THE SAME OLD STORY
Tie Senate ana House Said to Haye
JAPS REPORTED AGAIN VICTORIOUS
The Situation in Congress Seems no
Nearer Solution, and all Sorts
of Claims are Made. ;
Nearer Thn Bm
Washington, Aug. 4. When the dem
ocratic tariff conferees adjourned tonight,
after an all-day session, it looked as
though they were nearer an agreement
than at any time thus far, and yet the
agreement itself, which is the great end
in view, had not been attained. The
hopes of the conferees last night, that
definite results would be reached and
made public today failed to be realized.
An agreement on sugar had not been
reached beyond the possibility of recall,
nor ba'd agreements been made on iron
ore or coal. The day closed, however,
much better than it opened. It had
brought out the fact that the new sugar
schedule, submitted as an ultimatum by
the conservative senators, would be ac
cepted by the house conferees, and that
there was little else than the formal and
final announcement of the acceptance to
make the agreement on sugar complete.
So fully aatisfed were the house confer
ees that the schedule would prevail that
they nrged its advantages on their col
leagues on the house side and. pointed
out that in their opinion it would reduce
the benefits, at least by 50 per cent, over
the original senate schedule.
In view of the fact that the proposi
tion came from the senators, this willing
ness of the house men to put out its ad
vantage and features indicated the com
mon ground tBey occupied. Indeed, one
of the conferees spoke of the result' of
the day's work as equivalent to an agree
ment on , the sugar schedule,, but said it
was not such a binding agreement as to
cut off the possibility of disagreeing to
' it on Monday. Thus it stands, with the
. conferees on the point of agreeing, and
yet not actually at that point. ' As to
when the quasi agreement will -become
an absolute finality, the conferees had
no definite idea when they separated to
night. As Secretary Carlisle was with
them a part of the day, it is concluded
the schedule is also satisfactory to the
administration. When the democrats
separated this evening Senator Jones
said he hoped they might call upon the
republican conferees early next week,
possibly, but not probably,! Monday,
though he stated something might occur
to upset all calculations and prevent a
full and complete adjustment of the
The especially new developments of
the day was the disclosure early this
morning that the two Louisiana sena
tors, Caffery and Blanchard, could not
be depended upon to support the new
sugar schedule. Their opposition was
based on the ground that it failed to take
into consideration the requirements of
the Louisiana sugar planters tor the
bounty on their present crop, at least.
This caused some uneasiness at the out
set, and it was felt the new schedule,
upon which hung the chance o full
agreement, might be wrecked by the
opposition of the Louisiana senators and
several populists. This feeling wore off
later in the day, however, either through
indifference of concession to this opposi
tion element, and it was not regarded at
the close of the conference as a serious
menace to the success of the conferees
attempt was made today, as yes
terday, to disguise the details of the new
sugar schedule, and the conferees them
Selves officially confirmed its provisions
as made public yesterday, but pointed
out that the latest phase of the proposi
t:on entirely eliminated the one-tenth
differential against sugars coming from
countries paying an export bounty on
sugar. This, it, was explained,; made
' the proposition more nearly approach
the decision of ; the house. In other
words, the new schedule is exactly as
heretofore given, viz : ' - - V ; "" " :, '
On sugars below No. 16, Dutch stand
ard (raw sugars) 40 per cent ad valorem ;
on sugars above No. 16, Dutch standard
(refined sugars), 40 per cent ad valorem
, Highest of all in Leavening Pwer.
of the amount necessary for the protec
tion of refined sugars at the wholesale
price in the country from which it is ex
ported, pays a differential duty of 1-5 of
a cent per pound. ' .
After the conferees had reached their
virtual agreement on the sugar schedule,
they put this to one side and took up the
question of "iron ore and coal, but ad
journed without reaching a conclusion
with regard to these two products.
Workman , stabbad. Kicked anil Beaten
by Slavs. -
COXSBLLSVILLE, . Pa., Aug ; 4. A
bloody affair occurred at Leisenring this
evening, which shows the spirit of the
striking -Slavs is not subdued. While
Sam Matthews, who recently deserted
the strikers, was returning home from
work, a number of Slavs who were pass
ing by attacked him. Matthews was
captured, and then followed one of the
cowardly,-cruel scenes the Slavs have eo
often enacted in this region. The fugi
tive, hemmed in by numbers, struggled
desperately to protect himself. A big
Slav pushed in and struck at his neck
with a knife. Matthews threw out his
arm and the blade was buried in it above
the elbow. Dodging another blow, the
weapon penetrated his shoulder. There
was a storm of blows and ' every hand
striking them held a knife. The poor
man was bleeding dreadfully, but he
kept his wits and thus escaped more
than one of the fatal thrusts, when two
cowardly Slavs struck him from behind,
stabbing him in the back almost simul
taneously.' : Then he was thrown under
foot, being kicked and trampled, while
the men stooped to stab him in bis help
less condition. A crowd that had been
drawn by the attack charged on the
Slavs, drove them back and rescued the
wonnded man. He was carried to his
home, efforts made to staunch the blood
and '-. a . physician summoned. His
wounds will prove fatal. He is now in
an ' unconscious' .condition.';1 The : Slavs
who did the stabbing fled and have not
yet been arrested. ..
The Dreaded Cholera.
Washixgton, Aug. 4. A dispatch was
some days ago received from . Madrid

alence of cholera in Marseilles, France,
and that facts had been suppressed rand

out a special commission to investigate
it. At that time the marine hospitals
had received no information that would
enable them to affirm or deny the Mar
seilles rumors. Dr. Irwin, who . is . in
charge of the marine hospital service in
Europe, now reports briefly tbat .it is
true that cholera prevails in Marseilles.
The marine hospital service is also in
receipt of a cablegram ' from Consul

Deafness Cannot be Citred
By local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There ia only one way to cure Deafness,
and that- is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the ' mucous . lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely
closed Deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine- cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
, We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused bv catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
