men, those who would have been satis
fied with $4,500,000 a month, the bullion
redemption clause strioken out, and the
treasury notes made legal tender are
fearful they have carried things too far
and forced a vote which will mean that
they won't begin to get what they want,
when another measure is considered. It
now remains to see what the house will
do. The impression is that the silver
men will vote to have the bill go to con
ference upon an agreement that they will
get what is above stated. Then there
are others who feel that it would be fit
ting to force npon the administration the
neoessity of vetoing the bill. There is
no doubt but all feel that a step too far
has been taken even in the interests of
silver. It is further stated that Speaker
Reed will prevent by every possible
means any vote to concur in the senate
amendments. He may do this by allow
ing the bill to be upon his table until
agreement is reached to consider it eith

were jubilant last night are more
thoughtful to-day and there is a possi

A grllSEFHIiRDElfji DEATH.
August Bresson Sends a Knftet Throngh His
The Dalles, June 18. August Bres
son was found dead under a bridge over
Mill creek seven miles from this city,
this morning, with a pistol clasped
his right hand and a bullcthole through
his heart. Be was last seen Monday
morning at H o'clock, when he left Mea-
plie's saying he wsb going to herd sheep
for a neighbor. Ho had worked for Mes-
plie nine and a half days, and it is sup

Bresson was about 21 years of age cud a

$40 in money and a check for 1000 francs

Tlie New York Papers Opposed to Free, Coin
age. New York, Juue 18. The Tribune,
in an editorial on free coinage, sayi :
Just at this point an increase of coin
age with the issues of silver certificates
invite serious critioism. Coinage does
not help at all. Nobody would want
silver dollars in place of notes, even if
the latter should fall 1 per cent, or 10
per cent below par in gqld. The re
demption in bullion of a fixed gold value
would make tbe additional currency
safe, and put silver bullion behind notes
as a seoarity of unquestioned value.
The omission of that feature leaves the
the notes to be supported by the stock of
gold it may be possible to provide. That
may yet prove inadequate. Becogniz
ing the matter, tbe advocates of sound
currency have faith in the disposition
and ability of the present admiuist ration

sutnstances give it power, but it cannot

HANGED FOR MURDER.
A Man and ife to Suffer the Death Penalty.
Elko, N6V., June 19. Josiah Potts
and his. wife, Elizabeth, will be hanged
here Friday for tbemnrderof Miles Faw
cett at Carlin. January 1, 1888.
Fawcett was about 70 years of age and
lived on a ranch a few miles from Car
lin, where he bad some stock and sev
eral hundred dollars in money. Mrs.
Potts did his washing and baking, and
Fawcett leut- them several hundred dol
lars, which they substquently refusei to
. On January 1 Fawoett requested a
man. named Limeburger to accompany
him to Pott's place, saying he would
make tbem pay or he would tell some
thing about Mrs. Potts tbat would bang
her. Fawcett had $300 with him at the
time. They found tbe Potts family en
join g the New Year's eve, and Lime-
'jer, a'tsr accepting a glass of whis
key, left the house, leaving Fawcett there
to transact th business.
This was the last ever seen of him un.
til his body was fonnd the following
year. The Potts family stated tbat
Fawcett had settled up all his business ;
bad given MrB. Potts a bill of sale for
all his property, and left for parts un
known. Mrs Potts theD gave out that
she was going East to visit some rela
tives, bt instead took the train for San
Francisco, Two months afterward she
returned to Carlin, and in September,
1888, they sold out their property aud
formerly belonging to Fawcett and re
moved to Kook Springs, Wyo., where
Potts resumed his trade of maobinist.
In January, 1889, the body of Fawcett,
with his limbs severed from the trunk,
akuli crushed in and the remains partly
burned, were found by tbe caving in of
the roof of a dug-out cellar attached to
the house formerly occupied by tbe
Potts. The family was brought back to
Elko and placed on trial. They claim
ed that Fawcett committed suicide it
consequence of being detected in an at
tempt to assault their little daughter ;
that before doing so he promised to
leave tbe ouuntry and had given them t
bill of sale of his property. When, how
ever, Fawcett shot himself, the Potts
crushed in the Bkull and tried to burn
the body to destroy his identity, and
then the family left Carlin to avoid sus
picion. Medical ex perts, hovever, proved
that he man had not been shot and cir
cumstantial evidence went to show that
Mrs. Potts struck Fawcett on the back of
the head with an ax as he was lving in
bed. The jury returned averdictof mur
der in the hrst degree, and tbe supreme
court affirmed tbe decision.
WILD ABOUT SILVER.
legislators Getting Down Deep Into a Parlia
Washington, June 19. It Looked for
some time to-day as if the silver oraze
bad been transferred to the house of rep
resentatives, and that tbe free coinage
silver bill would pass with a whirl like
that which characterized the senate.
Each of the ballots taken to-day show
that tbe democrats with the free coinage
silver men werein control, but in their
effort te censure Speaker Beed for refer
ring the bill, and to expunge from the
journal any reference of the bill they
bungled, and to-night after adjournment
nobody is able to tell just exactly what
condition tbe bill is in. As a matter of
fact the bill is with the chairman of com
mittee on coinage, weights and meas
ures. The paragraph in the journal
showing that it has been referred to this
committee is gone. The preamble to tbe
resolution was defeated. When an at
tempt is made to-morrow to pass the bill
the democrats will find that they have
no bill to act on, and just how they will
recall a bill from a committee when there
is no record that the bill is before such a
committee is something of a mystery,
and which parlaments are not ready to
decide. There is a prevailing senti
ment that the delay which points of or-
aer ana or tne general debate will con
sume will enable the republicans to get
together their forces so that when tbe
real test oomes they may defsat free

.IACKSO.N RESENTS AN INSI'LT.
San Fkascisco, June 15. A Chron
icle special says: There was a free-for-all
fight last night at Joe Dievies's
Three-mile house, on the Leandro road,
near Oakland, in which Peter Jackson
the colored pugilist, played a prominent
part, Jackson was in the barroom with
Dieves and his son, when about a dozen
Germans, returning from a picnic,
entered. They were under the influence
of liquor, and one of tbem, after vainly
attempting to pick a quarrel with Jack
son, grossly insulted him. Jackson
knocked bim don and tbe man's friends
took up tbe fight. Jackson was aided
by Dieves and his sou, aud the three
managed to put the crowd to flight.
Sheriff Hale was notified of the trouble
by several men who demanded a warrant
for Jackson's arrest, but they conoluded
to wait until morning. Jaokson says be
tried bard to avoid tbe trouble, but was
foroed into fighting by insults from the
THE WALLA WALLA ARSON CASE.
Confession of Jail Birds to Implicate Citizens
of that Town.
It seems every convict in the Walla
Walla penitentiary not employed
making brick is engaged in studying up
confessions. The late Mrs. Pyle, Hurn
and Clink confession has especially
createa considerable attention, more
perhaps in fact, than it really deserved
says tlie w alia Walla Journal, for we
don't beiieve there is anything in it.
The Pyleand Hurn confession implicates
a certain dealer in second hand goods,
now absent from Walla Walla, also
prominent merchant of this place.
What they teil'ou these 'men . may have
some foundation, but we doubt it.
The Clink confession tries to Impli
cate a man who died before his time,
who used to keep a ealoon iu this city,
leaves a wife and several children, and
without mentioning names, for their
sake and that of the public, we here reit
erate most emphatically that the man
was as innocent of arson for which Clink
is in the pen, as a child unborn, tbat is
taking a sensible view of the matter.
Tbe facts in tbat particular case are
these, and we got tbem straight: A few
weeks before the great fire, Clink and
several other men were drinking, when
the landlord mentioned what a lot of
trouble he had with his tenants and irj
open, frank way of talking, he thought
