MORALS IN ALASKA.
Port Town send, Wash., Jan. 12.—United
States Marshal Orville T. Porter of 'tike
Alaska district has set several communi-
ties in that territory by the ears. The
number of white men lawfully married to
women of their own race In Alaska Is
confined principally to a handful of gov-
ernment officials and naval men Stationed
there. Nearly all of the balance of the
male population have purchased native
wives, their union with whom is not recog-
nized in law. Nearly every grand jury
wHiioh convenes In Alaska is instructed
from the bench to Inquire inito this al-
leged evil and indict all violators of the
law. This charge, however, is generally
a dead letter.
Last night the steamer Topeka, which ar-
rived from the north, brought Information
(that Marshal Porter has just Instructed
his several deputies throughout the terri-
tory to at once arrest every white man
violating this law, as a result of winch
official order, nearly every man on board
the United States steamer Plnta is In jail
at Sitka, Hundreds of other arrests are
expected. The jail will not tie large enough

son less seriously injured. Tile men were
employed by a bridge contractor and had
been to Savannah on a pleasure jaunt, not
having been at work during the afternoon.
Highest of all in Leavening Power Latest U. S. Gov't Report.
Washington, Jan. 12. — [Speci'al.l — The
News correspondent called on Congressman
Sayors to-day in regain to an interview
with Senator Bowser of Dallas and pub-
lished in The News, to the effect that he,
Sayers, would become a candidate for gov-
ernor of Texas, provided his act would
have the effect of harmonizing the dis-
cordant elements of the democracy in
Texas. Congressman Sayers says:
"1 am not and will not be, secretly or
openly, directly or indirectly, a candidate
for governor of Texas. There are gentle-
men in Texas better acquainted with the
condition of affairs in the state and more
capable than myself who would if select-
ed tni't only harmonize the democracy but
also give to the staite an able and econom-
ical administration. 1 am content with my
present position and I am not vain enough
to think that I can harmonize the dis-
cordant elements of the party. 1 am deep-
ly sensible of the great 'honor of being gov-
ernor of Texas, but at the present time
1 am in no condition to abandon my du-
ties here and devote myself to that work
which would lie necessary to secure the
nomination If it were possible under any
circumstances, i fully appreciate the par-
tiality of my friends who have written to
me upon this subject."
'Phe above are the exact words of Mr.
Sayers. Your correspondent then asked
him the following question:
"But suppose the democratic party in
Texas should nominate you for governor,
What would you do?" and he answered:
"There never has been a man In Texas
too large or too big to refuse a nomination
of the democratic party for the Texas
governorship. It Is an honor that no man
would imt aside."
The light for the marshalship of the East-
ern district of Texas Is .hardly over before
tlie fight over the nravghatehip of the
Northern district commences. It has begun
'in dead earnest by the fiUng of protests
against the appointment of John McCon-
nell of Childress. As In all such cases at
the outset, these charges are mot given to
Hie'public, the departments holding th'at
If charges against applicants for office
were given the press, the whole country
would tie In a fight. Newspapers can not
handle these charges, either, because in the
first place 110 one knows whether or not
they are true, and if published some law-
yer would be sure to find in them a case
for a fee in a libel suit.
Alt the postotlicv department I was In-
formed to-day that the light over the post-
offices at Dallas, Sail Antonio, Denison and
Foii't Worth were growing in fierceness, if
the indorsements, protests and charges
flowing in are any evidence.
Inquiry as to when the postmasters for
these towns would be appointed elicited
the information that they would probably
be appointed next week. "But," said the
gentleman giving me the Information, "the
papers In each case are now so thick" -

George B. Morgan, receiver for the banks

Dr. J. Ardls of Greenville is in the city.
He and Congressman Kilgore seem to be

his visit would be known.

Congressman Bell states that he is in-

there are a hundred cases ahead of the

postmaster general has not considered it.
That officer said lie would notify Mr. Bell
when he was prepared to take the case
up. The fact is, the postmaster general
hits not gone over the papers In this case,
knows nothing about them, and therefore
has come to no conclusion as (to the per-

COMMISSION STILL HELD UP.
Washington, Jan. 12.—[Special.]—The com-
mission of Collector Earnest of Corpus
Christl is still being held up. The names
of the persons he sent on here to be ap
proved by the treasury department' and
appointed as officers under him at Laredo
have not yet been passed on. though It is
given out at this department that this will
be done to-morrow.
The case of Mr. Earnest excites some
comment here, as it develops several
points that are new. He was appointed
and confirmed and is in office under a re-
cess appointment. And yet his commission
has not been issued to him: and, in fact,
is not signed. The main question is wheth-
er a confirmation does not make him ail
officer, without reference to the commis-
sion. Some hold that the commission Is
no more than an evidence of his being an
officer, just us a letter from the president
to him to that effect.
If tills contention is right then the only
■wav he can be deprived of his place Is by
a removal. If the president should with-
hold the commission, and make 110 order
of removal but appoint another man, there
might be a lawsuit.
If another man is appointed, it looks iat
present as if it would be Geo. French of
SILVER COINAGE MOVE.
Washington, Jan. 12.—[Special.!—The com-
mittee on coinage, weights and measures,
or rather the silver men 011 it, are feeling
highly jubilant over their success in se-
curing for a favoraible report a bill to coin
the seigniorage in the treasury, which will
yield in round numbers $35,000,000. As ex-
plained In the.se dispatches, such seigniorage
is that seigniorage which would result if
the $180,900,000 of silver bullion were coined.
The seigniorage to be coined if the bill
passed may be called anticipated seignior-
age. It is provided that the usual coin cer-
tificates shall be issued on this coinage.
The hill further provides that when this
seigniorage Is coined then the coinage of
the other bullion Into silver dollars shall
he proceeded with as smartly as possible.
The bill will not be reported to the house
till after the tariff bill now before that
body is disposed ol'. The reason for this
is that at the special session this commit-
tee was made a privileged one, that is, it
was empowered to report a bill at any
time and have Its reported bill considered
by th* bom.#. It It should report its bill
at this time It would go on the calendar
and would have to take Its turn with "ther
bills. Being kept back till the time when
nothing Is pending before the house It can
be put through at once.
WATS AND MEANS SURPRISES.
Washington, Jtan. 12.—The democratic
members of the ways and means commit-
tee considered the Internal revenue bill
to-day. The meeting was a spirited one.
many unexpected motions being made, so j
that at one time the friends of the Income
tax feared that they were defeated. At
the outset of the meeting, Mr. Tarsney
moved that the question as to whether the
internal revenue features w re to be re-
ported in an independent bill rihould be
referred to a democratic caucus.
This brought on a general discussion. A
vote was taken, and the Tarsney motion
prevailed by a vote of 6,to
Mr. liynum furnished the surprise of the
meeting by moving to reconsider the entire
revenue bill as practically agreed 011 at a
meeting some time ago. This motion also
prevailed by a vote of 6 to 5.
Mr. liynum voted wit the opponents of
an Income tax. The affirmative vote was
east by Messrs. Wilson, Breckinridge, liy-
num, Cockran, Stevens and Montgomery;
the negative vote by Messrs. McMlllln,
Bryan, Whiting, Tarsney and Turner.
A question then arose as to where this
left the bill, whether the Tarsney resolu-
tion sent the whole question to a caucus or
whether the Bynum resolution left anything
to submit to a caucus.
After some discussion as to the status a
vote was again taken 111 the other Internal
revenue features, und lhe\ were agreed
to as previously decided epori.
The democrats who \ ere opposing the
income tax proposition, led by Chairman
Wilson, then forced a direct vote upon the
question of submitting all the internal rev-
enue features to the house as a separate
measure. A motion tq so report the In-
ternal revenue was agreed to by a vote
of il to 3.
The question of a mucus was still In
doubt, owing 10 the various motions which
had intervened since tb • Taisnev proposi-
tion had first carried, but it was finally
agreed Informally that ii a caucus to con-
sider the Income tax should be called by
any members outside the ways and mean's
committee, and the caucus sentiment on a
vote should be for the inc.irporatlon ol'
the Internal revenue features as part of
the Wilson bill, any member of the com-
mittee so disposed coul 1 make the mo-
tion 011 the floor of the house to so In-
NEW BLAND KILL.
Washington, Jan. 12.—'The bill ol' Repre-
sentative Bland directing the secretary of
the treasury to coin the silver seigniorage
now In the treasury w&* favorably acted
upon by the committee en coinage to-day.
The vote on reporting the bill was 9 to 8.
The affirmative vote was ail democratic
with the exception 01' Representative
Sweet. The negative vote was republican
with the exception of Messrs. Tracy. Har-
ter and Ray nor. The Bland selgnlorag0
bill as agreed on directs the secretary of
the treasury to immediately issue silver
certificates of desired denominations up to
the amount of the seigniorage now in the
treasury, viz: $55,1156,881. These certificates
are to be at once available to pay current
government expenses. The seigniorage is
to be coined as fast as possible to redeem
A further provision is added that the
remainder of the silver bullion purchased
under the act of July 11, 1890, shall be
coined into silver dollars and the coin held
I11 the treasury for the 'redemption of treas-
ury notes issued In the purchase of said
bullion. The notes presfiued for redemp-
tion shall not be reissued but shall be can-
celled and destroyed In amounts equal to
the coin held at any time In the treasury,
and silver certificates may be issued 011
such coin In the mannei now provided by
the law. Representative land wir» well
pleaded with the res:itt u, the resolution.
"I will not. make the report of the seign-
iorage bill until after the tariff is out of the
way, said he, "as the tariff has the right
of way and we do not wish to antagonize
It or divert attention from It. But the de-
termination of the committee meets the
bond provision more than half way. f do
not believe a bond bill eon pass the house,
and on the. other hand I have little doubt
as to the passage of the seigniorage bill."
VOTED AGAINST REPEAL.
Washington, Jan. 12.—The opposition to
repeal of the tax on state banks scored a
victory in the committee on banking and
currency to-day. The friends of the bill
had been confident that the protracted
committee struggle would end to-day by a
favorable report, but Representative John-
son [rep.] of Indiana executed a flank
movement by moving to consider the reso-
lution for the previous question. Mr. John-
son's motion carried on a viva voce vote.
He at once followed this up by moving
that the entire question be put aside until
after the tariff debate closed. This also
carried, and the meeting summarily ended
With the state bank men in the minority.
HOLMAN FOR OPEN CAUCUS.
Washington, Jan. 12.—Representative Hol-
man of Indiana, chairman of the demo-
cratic caucus of the house, is strongly
opposed to the secrecy which has here-
tofore enveloped house caucuses.
"1 was in favor," said he, "of having
the recent democratic caucus on the tariff
open to the correspondents and to the
public, and I had directed that the press
galleries should be opened during the cau-
cus. There was such strenuous opposition
to the publicity, however, that 1 finally
consented to 'have the doors of the house
and those leading to the galleries closed.
But I am satisfied that such secrecy Is
not right, and the nexi caucus will be an
open one if 1 can possibly bring about that
REPUBLICANS FOR HORNBLOWER.
Washington, Jan. 12.—Probably the most
unexpected development In connection with
Hornblower's confirmation which has come
to light is the action of the executive
committee of the national republican com-
mittee in trying to secure his nomination.
The fact of such action did not become
public until to-day. It was done at the
suggestion of Mr. Bliss at New York, who
urged the confirmation of the nomination,
especially It' it could be made to appear
as having been accomplished largely
through republican instrumentality anil
would be to the benefit of the jTepubllcan
THE SEALING FLEET.
Washington. Jan. lz.—Levi W. Myers,
consul at Victoria, reports on the sealing
fleet for the coming season. He says:
"I am assured that all expect to go direct
to the Russian side, the restriction of that
government terminating by their own
terms of January 1, ism. The sealers un-
derstand that from that date there will
be 110 obstructions to sealing there and
they dread the complications on tills side
of the Pacific. There is not the bustle und
excitement about tie- outfitting this time'
that characterized the preparation of last
year, but all the vessels are going to sea.

WORLD'S FAIR MEDALS.
Washington, Jan. 12.—Senator Chandler of
New Hampshire has introduced a resolu-
tion directing the select committee 011 the
quadro-centennial to ascertain what pro-
gress has been made In the preparation
of Columbian medals for which sdiprapm-
tion had been made by congress, and to re-
port whether future legislation is neces-

Postmasters—Arkansas: T. E. WUcoxson,
Louisiana: Jonas Rosenthal, Alexandria. j
Texas: E. K. King, Brownwood; J. J.
Julian, El Paso,
Washington, Jan. 12.—The greater part,
of the time of the senate was devoted to
executive business. The nomination of Mr.
Pl'estoll to be director of the mint was
finally secured after many weeks of slum-
bering and confirmed by a vote of three-
fifths of the senators present.
The chief event of the open session of
the senate was the adoption of the resolu-
tion of Mr. Allen, the populist from Neb-
raska, calling upon the secretary of the
treasury to explain certain figures in his
recent report in regard to the gold Im-
portations for 1S93.
Senator Dolph of Oregon joined with the
populist senator in expressing an inability
to comprehend the secretary's report and
the resolution of inquiry was adopted with-
out any dissent.
Th<> Hawaiian correspondence, expected
ito be communicated by the president,
was not received, and ut 12.110, on motion
of Mr. Gray, Che senate went into execu-
tive session, which lasted until 11 p. 111.,
when an adjournment was taken until
Washington, Jan. 12.—The important
tariff speeches to-day were made by Mr.
Payne, one of the leading republican mem-
bers of the ways and means committee;
Dr. Everett, the Massachusetts mugwump,
and Mr. Jerry Simpson, the Kansas popu-
Mr. Simpson created the sensation of the
day by illustrating bli r marks 011 the
deplorable condition of tin- agricultural
classes by displaying a dilapidated over-
coat which he got from a. farmer 011 the
market place, tie said he could duplicate
It 011 the bucks of a million farmers In
tlie United States to-day.
After the reading of the journal in the
house to-day the senate amendment to
the house joint resolution for the appoint-
ment of a joint commission to examine
into all questions relating to the personnel
of the navy was agreed to and then Mr.
MeCreaty presented from the foreign af-
fairs committee the llltt resolution calling
upon the president for information received
from Hawaii since the transmission of his
recent message. Mr. McCreary asked unan-
imous consent for tin' consideration of the
Mr. Richardson [dem.] of Tennessee ob-
jected to unanimous consent. As he did
so, Mr. lioutelle, who had just entered the
hall, interposed to remark that if Mr.
Richardson had not objected lie should
have done so; unanimous consent had been
refused him for the consideration of the
naval resolution. A house under the rule
of three men might just as well be held up
by one man, he remarked sarcastically.
This closed the incident, and the tariff de-
bate was resumed.
Mr. Brosius of Pennsylvania completed
his speech against the bill, begun yester-
Mr. Pendleton Idem.I of West Virginia
followed Mr. Black [dem.] of Georgia, who
spoke after Mr. Everett, Cqth!r)g 1'roc! 1|M
territory protesting against placing coal 011
the free list, Mr. Pendleton's speech was
especially significant. He denounced those
of his party who now shirked the respon-
sibility of reforming the tariff, and ,vho
wanted to hold back in the traces.
-Mr. Payne of New York, one of the re-
publican members.of the ways and means
committee, then spoke 011 the bill.
Mr, Jerry Simpson of Kansas then took
the floor and loosened a broadside against
protection and trusts. Mr. Simpson said
that while he Intended to vote for the Wil-
son bill, there were many provisions in It
that he did not approve of. He was not
one of those who ever believed that the
democratic party brought to the test would
carry out its pledges, for he knew while
there were honest democrats, the action
of the democratic party, like that of the
republicans, was controlled by money
"The people's party," said he, "stands on
a platform pledged, as I Interpret it, to
the principle of free trade. What 1 say
here to-day In the discussion of the bill
shall be from the standpoint of a free
"He believed that 'the cause of evil
times could be easily discovered If gentle-
men would divest themselves of party pre-
judice. It had not Come suddenly, but had

Industry of the people. The Intolerable
burden put upon the -agricultural classes
through tlhe Indirect system of taxation
had been one of the potent causes which
lias produced the present condition of af-
fairs. The farmers of the country in 1S50
owned 60 per cent oS the wealth. 5,1 per
cent in 1860, 10 per cent in 1880 and :!0 per
cent in 1890.
It was at this juncture that Mr. Simp-
son created great applause and amuse-
ment by treating the house to tin object
lesson of u dilapidated overcoat. He
proposed to show the house exactly what
the poor people of the country did wear.
Reaching down under his desk he seized
a tattered old overcoat, fringed at the
edge and bespangled with great patches.
He held it on high while the house and
the galleries cheered.
"I bought that of a farmer." said he,
"who told me he had left home at 12 o'clock
at night and driven twenty-five miles to
sell his product in your boasted home mar-
ket. This, as Mr. Cleveland savs, is an

Trade With a Surprised Farmer.

Washington, Jan. 12.—[Special.]—The nen-
Kiiklon ol' the tarilT debate to-day was an
incident in 'the gpcech of Jerry Simpson,
h will be renu*mber*M that during tho de-
bate on tli< Mills bill in the Fiftieth ron-
sreas Mr. McKinley intruded before the
house a .suit of clothes: which he a iid he
had bought for $10 from a Boston Arm.
It wns an exceptionally good suit and lie
paraded it as an illustration of g"ood and
Air. Simpson stated that, knowJns he was
to speak to-day, he went down lo the ni.tr-
ktt this morning, where the farmers cunte
to sell their products, and selecting one
of tJhetn as a fair representative In dress
of tlio others, asked him what ho would
t:\ke for his clothes. Tlie farmer, doubt-
less thinking1 be hail come across a new
style of crank said he did not want t >
sell his clothes and was disposed to was:
wroth. .Mr. Simpson asked mm what 'hi •
suit cost and he said $S. Mr. Simpson
proposed to ,.rlvo him a $10 suit for tli>•
one lie had on and the offer was accepted.
In his speech t'he coat was held up by th««
speaker. It was a. sun faded garment.
The seams were open here and tnere and
Mr. Simpson said it was exactly like a.
mi'lMon <«oa,ts "now on farmers* hurtle*
throughout the country. He then milled
at It and it came apart. He did all this
in such a drama tie way that it brought
down the house. Mr. Simpson said the $10
suit die ill ad given the farmer was not a
whit better than the one he held Jn his
Congressman Cannon, anxious to coun-
teract th»* el feet of Mr. Simpson's Illustra-
tion, wanted to know if the coal Mi veil
and the coat displayed were of domestic
or foreign manufacture.
Mr. Simpson replied that this was a mat-
ter of indifference to -him, because the
shoddy ami worthless character of working
people's clothes were caused by the pro-
tective tarllV. That tarifT caused the worth-
less character of goods here und caused
cheap and worthless goods to be imported
to compete with home worth lewdness. This
part of Mr. Simpson's effort brought out
oheers from the democrats and galleries.
When he got through, the democrats con-
gratulated lrim by shaking hands with him,
but he got no sign of approval from th«

LYNCHED BY BEST CITIZENS.
Cincinnati, O., Jan. 12.—Roscoe Parker,
the colored hoy Who six week's ago last
Sunday night brutally murdered the aged
Mr. Ithine and 'his wife, was hanged by a
mob of the best citizens of Winchester
and adjacent points in Adams county, 0„
at I o'clock this morning, about four miles
The murder was for money, and only $10
was obtained. Parker, the murderer, was
only 10 years old, had worked for the old
couple and had known of Mr. Rhine re-
ceiving money for t'he sale of some stock.
T'he boy confessed his crime, but impli-
cated Sam Johnson, who easily proved his
Lynching was threatened and Parker was
■taken to Portsmouth for safe keeping.
Meantime the spirit of vengeance did not
sleep. Secret organization was had. and
when It was learned yesterday that Sheriff
Dunlap on his way from Athens would
bring Parker to Adams county for a pre-
liminary hearing, and would keep him over-
night in t'he West Union jail, messengers
were sent out and a. band of 400 men met
at 'tlie Panhandle crossing and rode 'to
West Union. At t'he jail they 'tried to
work the ruse of pretending they had a
prisoner, but t'he sheriff, seeing masked
men through the door, fastened it secure-
ly. The mob used force and despite the
sheriff's manly defense soon had Parker
and were on their way toward Finch-
burg. The colored boy still maintained
that Johnson did the murder, and finally,
when the place of execution was reached
and t'he rope was around his neck he
•Jiii'l he was not at the place of murder
that night and could tell nothing whatever
about il. He refused to pray and was
hanged after one or two efforts by the
suniewhat unskillful executioners, who left
him after firing bullets Into his body.
