ment on tne part or secretary uresnam

fran Roslyn, Wash., says:
At.ll o'clock Inst night Bill Tecpinney,
cn Indian, while lodged In the Jail for
the night, set flro to the Interior of his
cell and was burned to a crisp.
The Northern Pacific Coal Company,
at Roslyn, opened t.helr offices for the
slgnat ires to contracts to go to work,
and about 100 signed, among them be
ing a score of colored miners from
Franskln and British Columbia. They
were Instructed to report for word on

THEY ARE ALL GOOD MEN.
The Committee Decides that the Sen
ators Were Not Bribed.
Washington, August 2. Senator Gray,
chairman of tho sugar Investigation
committed, presented the report to the
senate today, the main report being
signed by all . the- members) of the
committee. Lodge and Davis presented
a supplementary report, and Allen pre
sents his own vlewa on some features
of the case. Secretary Carlisle la ex
onerated. . .
The committee sny the evidence does
not show that tho sugar schedule was
mado In consideration of contributions
to the DomocraUo campaign fund, or
Improper conduct on tho part of those
engaged in framing tho schedule.
The committee strongly deprecate tho
pressuro to which congress and its
members are subjected by representa
tives of the great industrial combina
tions "whose enormous wealth tends
to suggest undue Influence, and to
create In public minds a demoralizing
belief In the existence of corrupt pol
Itlcs.'.' The committee reports In the negative
upon the question "whether any sen
ator had been speculating In" sugar
stocks during the consideration of the
tariff bill." As to the latter branch of
Inquiry which brought out tho photo
graph to copy of the order to buy sugar
stocks dated March 2, and purporting
to be signed by Senator Camden; the
committee gives credence to the denial
of Senator Camden, and says thnt Bat
tershnll, whose testimony was expected
to bear up the Inference from the pho
tographlo copy, Is a man of doubtful
character. Senator Smith is also exon
erated from blnme.
In summing up, the committee says
no charge or charges have been filed
before them, alleging that the action
of the senntors has been corruptly in
fluenced In consideration of the tariff
hill, and no attempt has been made to

Dusen, at whose .house Sam Clark, the

on the morning of the wreck she asked
Mr. Nelle, the American Rsllwiiy Union
boarder, If there was any danger. "He
asked me if I should see Sam again,
and I snld 'yea. In the morning.' He
said, 'Whoever goes out on thnt engine
will never reach Davisvllle. Warn him
In my name not to go.' I saw him In
the morning and pleaded with him not
to go.. He said, 'I must go, If I don't,
they will court-martial me and make
me.' " -
PUBLIC DEBT STATEMENT.
Washington, August 2. The regular
monthly statement of the public debt
Issued today by the treasury department
shows that the aggregate of the publto
debt to July 31, 1SII4, was S1.G33.806.240,
as against 11.0:12,253.63s, June 30, 1804.
This apparent increase of 11,552,004 In
the public debt Is owing to an Increase
In the Issue of certificates and treasury
notes, which, however, are'offset by an
eo.un! amount of cash In the treasury.
Aside from this Item the statement
shows a net decrease In the public debt
of $03,805. On July 31, 1S04, tho interest
bearing debt amounted to $035,042,590,
an Increase for the month of $700, The
gold reserve is $54,975,007.

cratic members of the tariff conference
hud reached no agreement at recess.
Tho conferees said, however, that fair

no foundation for the report thnt a
xllJIng ':alj will be adopted.
