ALABAMA HAS AX ELECTION'
And the Democrats are Afraid They
-Cannot Carry It-Chinese Troops
I ii the Senate.'
Washington", Aug, 5. In the senate
today a resolution was introduced by
Mills, democrat, of Texas, and laid on
the table temporarily, declaring that in
the revision of the existing system of
national taxation the following prin
ciples should be observed :
First All taxes are burdens on tax
payers, and can only be rightfully im
posed to raise revenue to support the
Second When taxes are imposed on
imported goods the rate should be ' so
law at not to materially restrict impor
tation. - '
Third In selecting articles to be taxed,
only those ready for consumption should
be chosen, and those imported for
manufacture or remanufacture slfould be
The resolution offered August 1, by
Chandler, looking to the investigation
of the Dominion Coal Company, of Nova
Scotia, and the substitute offered by
Mills, providing that a special com
mute of five should be directed to re
port to the senate whether any member
of congress is or was interested in any
company engaged in mining coal in any
of the states or any railroad company
engaged in transporting coal which
would come into competition with the
Dominion Coal company, and whether
its removal would reduce the price of
coaf to consumers, and what section of
the country would be benefited by -its
retention, were taken up. A discussion
arose between Mills and Chandler as to
whether the old sugar committee would
be appointed. Mills favored the reten
tion of the old committee because, he
said, it was honest and capable, and
recently reported that charges made
against senators bad not been sustained.
"Is that the reason the senator from
Texas favors this committee?"- inquired
Mills denied he was influenced by any
such motives and expressed a willing
ness to have a new committee appointed
if Chandler preferred.
The resolution to investigate the
Dominion Coal Company went over
under the rules without action.
Tariff Conferee as far Apart as Brer.
Washington, Aug. 6. The democratic
tariff conferees today resumed the work
of trying to reach an agreement. At 12
noon, no progress had been made.
Secretary Carlisle has recently . been
called into frequent consultation. Sat
urday night 'he made certain suggestions
concerning the administrative features
proposed by compromise, and it is un
derstood the conference have been con
sidering their bearing upon the questions
at issue. The coal and iron ore questions
have been, taken up. It is understood
the conference have indicated a willing
ness to make a concession as to the time
the duty shall continue, but not a lesser
amount. They are understood to be
holding out for the terms of the house
bill. The Louisiana senators are de
manding a continuation of at least a
part of the sugar bounty for the present
year. There is increased talk of pressing
a free spgar bill in case of the failure of
the tariff bill which is probably intended
largely to bring the Louisiana senators
When the tariff conferees took a re
cess' for lunch today, the house confer
ees seemed to think an agreement was
in sight. The senate conferees and those
senators with whom they advise and con
sult, seemed to think the prospects not so
bright, and an ultimate disagreement
'will be reported. It is also stated that
within the next two days " a report of
either agreement or disagreement, must
be made. Coal and iron ore were the
articles in dispute today. The contest
is very stubbornly made on both sides. :'

3, they were attacked by Chinese sol
diers, who seized their baggage and
threatened them with personal violence,
but Viceroy Li Hung Chang quickly
sent a force of troops to the scene and
suppressed the riot.
Arizona and New Mexico.
Washington, Aug. 6. With the ses
sion of congress drawing to a close, and
all attention likely to be concentrated
upon the tariff bill, it is not considered
probable the senate will act upon either
the Arizona or New Mexico state bills
before the final adjournment. This was
the understanding when the bills were
reported from the committee on terri
tories. The dates of admission in the
case of Arizona and the constitutional
convention in the case of New Mexico
have been so deferred in the senate bills
that no change will be necessary in case
of postponement.' The provision in the
Arizona bill is for admission August 1,
1895, while the convention in New
Mexico is not to meet until July 1, 1395.
Governor Hughes s of the opinion the
bill will have to be changed to provide
for a new constitution before it can pass
the senate. This opinion he bases upon
the opposition he finds to exist in the
senate to 'the constitution adopted in
1891, on account of the irrigation and
silver payment features. .
Independent Catholic Chsreheti
Baltimore, Aug. C. Three thousand
members of the Holy Rosary Catholic
church have decided to disregard in the
future the demands of the cardinal, and
to establish an independent Catholic
church. ' They , propose to place ' the
management in the hands of a com
mittee, and to engage their own pastor.
Two of the members were sent to
Cleveland to investigate- how the affairs
of the independent church in that city
were conducted, and they have returned
with a glowing report. They say they
will have no trouble getting a
priest. About SO priests are ready to
leave as soon as they can get churches.
The Alabama Election.
. Montgomery, Ala-, Aug. 6 The state
election is now in 'progress. Reports
from counties so far indicate, the -new
election laws "are . working smoothly.
The confidence of both sides is .amazing.
Each party is banking strong on getting
the. negro vote. A report, just in from
Elmore, a large negro "county, says the
negroes there who were expected to vote
almost solidly with the democrats have
astonished everybody by giving the' op
position their unanimous - support. A
Kolbite said today his party was sure to
carry the legislature. The democrats
figure out that they will have . at least
six majority in the legislature unless the
negroes go back on them.'
Deifying a Chinese Woman.
It is possible for any .Chinaman, or
even any Chinese woman, to become a
deity by paying for the honor. .A few
years agt a rich and devout Chinese
ladyr died in Soochoo.- Her friends
thought that an apotheosis was no
more than her due.ind communicated
with the priests, who interviewed the
gods on the subject, and discovered
that the god. of the left little toenail
had no wife. The old lady was accord
ingly married to his god.ship, and is
now enrolled as the "goddess of the
left little toenail." The honor cost the.
old lady's estate over five thousand
dollars. . i, ;

QUEER HUMAN NATURE.
What Is Food for One Man Is Rankeat
, 1'oison for Another.
Human' nature continues to be as
queer" as it ever was. The mayor of
Portland, Me., in- an address at a recent
temperance meeting, says the; New
orkl.Jost, told of.a young Englishman
who came to that city seven years ago in
order to escape the temptations of open
saloons, which he could not resist and
which threatened liis rain, and vho
has been sober ever since, and has risen
from earning four dollars, a week to a
salary of twenty-five hundred dollars a
jyear." On the other hand, we have been
xoia py a clergyman in anotner Maine
city of a young- man who was beinjf
ruined there by the temptations of the
social clubs, which took the place of
saloons as" drinking places, and who
came to New York for salvation, which
he found there, because the open rum
shop had no charms for him. In like
manner many of the most thoughtful
and conservative citizens of Des Moines.
Ia., have signed the petition for the
introduction of saloons in that city un
der the new liquor law,' because they
believe that the change will diminish
the terrible amount of drunkenness
among our young men which has pre
vailed under the prohibitory law and
the club system. These instances show
how differently the same influences
affect different persons and how impos
sible it is to find any system which is
perfect. . "
