SENATOR HILL ONLY IN DOUBT
The Income Tax Feature Retained,
and Mnrpliy and Hill May
Associated Press. -
Washington, May 2. While the re
port started early in the day indicated
that; there- inight be some difficulty in
agreeing on a tariff bill, the conference
which was held by the leaders on the
Democratic side of the senate during
the afternoon seemed to have been in
the interest of harmony, and the lack
of confidence there was among those
who hoped to secure a compromise dis
appeared. The position of Hill, of New
York, has caused some trouble, and
there are a number of senators who be
lieve, even now, that Hill will vote for
the bill with the income tax provision,
and it is almost certain the Income tax
The senators who are engineering the
compromise are counting on 43 Demo
cratic votes, and they believe they will
be able to control that number beyond
any doubt. This Indicates that they
hope to pass the bill, even with the pp.
position of Hill, and it also indicates
that the bill has probably "been made
Hatlsfactory in other respects to Sena
tors Murphy, of New York, and Smith
of New Jersey.
Senator Brice Is more'outspbken'thaii
any of those who participated In tlip
conference. He said today: "In an In
terview a few days ago I said the tariff
bill had been agreed upon and would
pass, and I now reiterate that state
ment. I will say nothing as to the de
tails, but the bill has been ngreed
Lodge Torments the Democrats, But
They Refuse to Accept the Challenge,
Washington, May 2. The senate pro-j
ceedings were dull today. Most of the
afternoon was consumed by Squire, of
Washington, who made a carefully pre
pared speech in general opposition to
the tariff bill. Before he began, Lodge,
of Massachusetts, undertook to enact
the role of tormentor. - He threw out
some exasperating challenges to the1
Democ ratio side, but the Democrats re
fused to be drawn into & controversy, I
and finding his efforts unsuccessful he
turned the floor over to Squire.
Before the tariff bill was taken up
Hoar tried to pass his anti-lottery bill,
but it met with considerable opposition
from Senators Vest and Gorman, on the
ground that it was Interfering with the
raffles and drawings at church fairs and
made the participants guilty of felonies.
Ultimately the bill went over without

annual cost of $886,000.
DECREASE OP GOLD SHIPMENTS. I
Washington, May 2. The indications

gold had at last set in. Advices at thc

Fort Snelllng May 2.
SUMMARILY SAT UPON.
Washington, May 2. Representative
Johnson, Democrat, of Ohio, created a
sensation in the house by introducing a
resolution calling for congressional In
vestigation of the beating of citizens
by the p.llce during the Coney demon-
stratum at the capltol yesterday. The
resolution was summarily killed.
London, May 2. The International bi
metallic congress convened today. Four
hundred delegates are present. The ob
ject of the conference Is to urge upon
the Britlfih government the necessity
for the free coinage of gold and silver
at fixed ratios. An ex-lord mayor pre
sided. Letters have been received from
financiers of America and Europe en
couraging, the movement.
Balfour, the Conservative leader in
the house of commons, addressed the
conference this afternoon. He said it
was absolutely necessary that the mone
tary functions of silver should be re
stored If business is to be carried on
on a solid basis. The difficulties of an
international agreement, he Insisted,
were merely as to details.
Mr. Balfour claimed that the action
of the United States had forced the In
dian and British governments Into the
system now prevailing, adding: "We
ought to enter Into an agreement with
the countries of the world for a bimet
allic joint standard. The solution of
the problem is easier than it will be five
years hence. Great is the responsibility
of those who keep England In stupid
selfish Isolation in this great question."
Mr. Leon Courtney followed, contend
ing an international fixed ratio was
practicable If based upon Iho normal
production of gold and silver.
UNKNOWN MAN KILLED.
Baker City, Or., May 2. A fatal ac
cident occurred today eight miles south
of the city. A stranger arrived In the
city last night driving a fine span of
horses to a spring wagon. He left this
morning in an intoxicated condition,
and approaching the Blue Canyon his
team became frightened at a pack-horse
and ran away. The unfortunate man
was thrown out, his head struck on a
rock and mashed out his brains. A re
ceipted bill addressed to John Warren
was found In his pocket, which Is sup
posed to be his name. He told parties
here last night that he was from Wal
lowa county and on his way to Wlnne
mucco, Nev. The wagon was loaded
with supplies sufficient for the trip.
One dollar and twenty-five cents was
found on the body.
GIVE WAY TO CHINESE TREATY.
Washington, May 2. If the agree
ment made in the senate two weeks ago
is observed, the tariff bill will be sus
pended tomorrow to permit the senate
to consider the Chinese treaty. . The
first question to be determined in con
nection with the treaty Is the motion of
Mitchell that it be discussed and action
taken in open session. It is the purpose
of the Republican senators from the Pa
cific Coast to antagonize the treaty by
all the arts at their command.
A NEW RECORD. .
New York, May 2. Wheat made a
new record today for both May and
July. The former sold at 60 3-8 and July

A New Policy of the Postmaster
THE RIOTS IN CLEVELAND
Workmen Driven Out and Machin
ery and Windows Smashed
Larpre Number Injnred.
Washington, May 2. Postmaster Gen
eral Blssell has formulated a policy of
barring saloonkeepers and bartenders
from appointment aa postmasters. In
accordance with this plan, where there
are several candidates, the fact that
many of them have business dealings
with saloons will be given weight, and
other candidates will be given the pref
erence in making appointments.
Postmaster General Blssell said: "It
Is not a temperance question nor a
moral question, it is a business question
particularly. From observation and ex
perience, I am convinced that any man
directly or Indirectly interested in the
liquor business Is In a measure unfitted
by his occupation, and that his Interest
in that business necessarily Interferes
with the full discharge of such official
duties In any branch of the postal ser
RIOTERS AT WORK.
Workmen Driven Out and Machinery
and WlndowB Smashed.
Cleveland, 0 May 2. The 7,000 un
employed men again assembled thlt
morning and marched on their mission
of destruction. Every window was
broken at the Variety Iron Works and
the entire force of men working run
out. At the Upson Nut and Bolt Works
the windows were broken, machinery
smashed and the men driven away.
Twenty-five men were driven from the
Church Furniture Works. All the re
serve police, including the mounted
men, have been! ordered out. Many ar
rests, have been made. -Great, excite
ment prevails in the' southern part of
The rioters raided a scraplron yard
and armed themselves with pieces of
Iron. They were In a frenzy, and were
constantly urged on by the leaders to
resist the officers. Large reinforcement
of police arrived and a chargo was made
on the mob with drawn clubs. The
crowds Bhowed fight for only a moment,
and then their ranks were broken. The
police used their clubs to such an effect
that many rioters were laid low. The
patrol wagons were loaded with prison
ers and sent to the nearest station.
Part of the mob made an unsuccessful
attempt to hold up the mall train on
the NIcel Plate road. The rioters are
mostly Italians and Poles.
There were three separate and bloody
conflicts between the police and the
rioters, and tonight the troops are un
der arms and ready to respond to a
call In case' of any emergency. The
worst is believed to b over, however.
At least CO people were injured by the
RELIGIOUS RIOTERS INDICTED.
A Solitary Policeman Could Have Pro-
vented the Bloodshed.
Kansas City, May 2. The grand Jury
today returned indictments against the
chief participants in the Catholic and
A. P. Ji. election-day riot. Jerry M.
Pate, D. A. Pike, E. L. Coleman and
another participant in the riot who is
not yet In custody, were Indicted for
murder In the first degree. The Jury
censured the police department, and
adds: "A solitary policeman, clothed In
uniform, then on the spot, could havf
saved human life and prevented the
bloodshed which followed; but none woe
there, and so armed men, filled with re
ligious hatred of each other, fought out
a battle and then escaped, before thf
solitary policeman stationed about s
block away at that precinct appeared
on the scene."
WANT TO GET THEM OUT.
Tacoma, May 2. The citizens of Puy

lowed In, but they succeeded in getting
in and capturing the meeting. The
meeting was addressed by Gov. Mc
Graw, who was appealed to for aid lust
night by the citizens of Puyaliup. The
governor said he was not In sympathy
with the movement, and recommended
that the army appoint a committee to
go to Washington if It had any griev
ance to present to the government. He
had no plan for getting the army out'
of Puyaliup, which the citizens of that
city are working earnestly to accom
plish, as the army numbers nearly one
half the total population, and the people
say they could not cope with trouble
should a disturbance occur. Gen. Cant
well made a speech at the meeting. He
said that he would take his men to
