Bond Purchases.

The following statement in regard to the purchases of bonds under the circular of April 17, was prepared at the The Mills Bill Before the House for Amendment A Day of Debate Over an Item Amounting in Total to Three Dollars. Recapitulation of the Bond Purchases Made Under the, Recent Proposition of the Secretary of the Treasury Amount Purchased, Their Cost, and the Saving in Interest to the Government A Hill to Modify the Existing Banking: Laws THE HOUSE. Washington. June 2. On motion of Blount, of Georgia, the senate amend ments to experimental agricultural station bill were concurred in.

The house then went into committee of the whole on the agricultural appropriation Vtil! Hatch, of Missouri, asked that general debate be dispensed with, which was done, and the bill was read bj sections for amendment. Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, proposed an amendment forbidding the issuance by the agricultural department to members of consrress of any seeds in excess of their respective quota, and making it un lawful for the commissioner of agricul ture and any subordinate in the department to act as agent for any seed man, The amendment was ruled out on a point of order. The committee then rose and the bill was passed. The regular order was demanded, being Mr.

Mills' motion to limit debate on the pending paragraph of the tarifi bill to ten minutes, which prevailed and the house then went into the committee of the whole on the bill. The amendment under consideration was to strike from the free list timber hewn and sawed, and timber used for spars and wharves. Mr. Randall, of Pennsylvania, addressing the house said, that it should be the object of the house to fix the tariff at a rate just high enough to cover the difference on wages in this country and Canada, aud he hoped that the duty would be fixed as in his bill, at fifteen per cent, ad valorem. Mr.

Boothman, of California, advocated the adoption of the amendment, believing that free lumber meant idle workmen in this country. A division was then had on Mr. Strub-ble's amendment and it was rejected yeas, 06; nays, 100.

SAVED FROM HYDROPHOBIA. The Madstone Successfully Applied to Dog-Bitten Cowboy.

Kansas City Journal. Tom Harris, a cowboy from the Staked Plains, Texas, is lying at the Pacific hotel, in this city, recovering from an at tack of hydrophobia. Last Saturday night he was bitten by a "hydrophodia cat" while away from the ranch gather ing up stray cattle in the Indian territo ry. As the latal results ot such a bite is weli known in those parts of the coun try, the man lett the herd at once and rode to Fort Elliot, Tex as, in search of a madstone, but failing to find one, he started for Kansas City, where he arrived Wednes day morning, with his left hand and arm swolen and sunenng intense pain. L)r.

M. Dickson, of this city, who possesses a pair of madstones which his grandfather brought with him from Ireland, was at once sent for and began treatment. The wound is a very small and harmless looking one, consisting of three tiny teeth marks on the inside 01 the third linger ot the left hand. The madstones have drawn more or less pus from the wound since they were first applied yesterday morning as much as half an eggshell ful at one time. The swelling has de creased in proportion, and the doctor thinks now that the case is under control.

Harris is a very intelligent and well behaved cowboy. He now feels a great deal better, but admits that he was badly scared over the increasing pain and the constant swelling of his arm. He thinks he has had a pretty serious experience, and refers frequently in his conversation to that contemptible little animal that came so near sending him off "unpre pared, as he confesses. Dr. J.

1. Dickson has two stuned spec imens of the "hydrophobia cat" at his residence, 1307 Dnpps street. He says it is an entirely distinct species; different from the skunk or polecat, with which it is often confounded. The animal is no larger than an ordinary gray squirrel, with red eyeballs, and its long, snaggv hair and feelers, standing upward and forward. Its bite is always poisonous, and fatal if not attended to.

The doctor attributes the frequency of hydrophobia in this western country to the prevalence of this animal. It is found in Texas, Indian Territory, Arkansas, Kansas and western Missouri. Often, and especially in severe weather, the "hydrophobia cat" will make its way into houses, dugouts and stables, biting people and animals it may come in con tact with, and many cases of hydropho bia in domestic and wild animals are due to its bite. Very frequently hydrophobia patients come in from the Staked Plains in Texas and Indian Territory, to be treated with madstone. Among Dr.

Dickson's former patients was Chief Keokukowa, of the Sac and Fox tribe, in the Indian territory, who was a grandson of the old Chief Keokuk, after which Keokuk, was named. Heard In Salt Lake City.

after the annual convention last October, desertions have been many. The "rebels" have not succeeded in getting a great many knights to join the new provisional organization. The whole number of persons now paying taxes to the provisional committee is about thirty thousand. It is a pretty large number, but nothing as compared to the number of those who hav been induced, by the rebellion more than anything else, to leave the Knights of Labor altogether, and either givo up labor organizations or join trade unions. District assemblies based simply on geographical location are collapsing.

District No. 57, of Chicago, is going to pieces, most of its members having joined the new trades district of packing house employes. District No. 24 has fallen from 24,000 in 1886 to about 6,000, who remain members nominally, but very few of the locals are able to keep up their regular meetings, meanwhile the trades unions are booming. The Knights of Labor shoemakers are about to join the the trade district.

The painters have withdrawn, so have what few remained of the carpenters, except two locals, with less than one hundred members. The iron and steel workers were forming a trade district. Besides this shifting process there is a large actual loss, which can hardly be calculated. The Man Who Lost an Ear. Chicago, June 2.

It has been learned that the gentleman whose ear was cut off last night, by George Bell is not John Stevens, but George K. Murray, a traveling salesman from an eastern house, who makes his headquarters here. To a reporter who gained access to his room he said that he had known Bell and his wife for some time, and he had been on most friendly terms with them. He says he has always treated them with the utmost respect, and no action or word of his was ever of a nature to inspire any suoh assault as that of yesterday. Murray presents a sorry appearance, as not only his left ear but also a large piece of his cheek is gone.

Bell was not to be found at his home last night or this morning and his relatives would say nothing about the matter. Capture of a Counterfeiter. Chattanooga, June 2. Fred Fowler was arrested in this city to-day on a charge of attempting to pass coun terfeit money.

The Engineering News publishes this week an article on the "Actual Status of the Panama Ca nal," giving the results of the recent expert examination of the entire length of the canal and accompanied by a progress profile, showing the amount of work done and undone to January 1st of the present year, both for sea level and lock canal. The profile shows that the only work which is anywhere near completion is about eleven mires of dredging on the Atlantic end and about a mile at the Pacific end. The German Flood Sufferers.

The Past Week, Broken by a Holiday, Has Likewise Brought Broken Markets. A Decided Improvement In the Crop Prospects Noted Losses in Winter Wheat Districts Counterbalanced by Increased Acreage in Spring Wheat Report From Interior Points Show Comparative Dullness A Decline in Prices of Stocks Business Failures. New York, June 1. R. G.

Dun review of trade says: The past week, broken by a holiday, has brought broken markets. Lower prices for stock and for products, dull trade, cheaper money and better crop prospects have been its feature. The exchanges continue to indicate a smaller volume of business than at this time last year, the latest returns showing a decrease of fi ve per in which twenty cities share, including some of the ten having the highest transactions. The improvement in crop prospects is decided. While the loss in winter wheat will still be large, a marked increase in the acreage of spring wheat is reported.

With favoring weather of late and improvement in many quarters where the winters injury was not greater, the effect upon the market has been important. "Wheat has fallen i cents, corn 3 cents and Oats a fraction. Hogs 25 cents and lard 30 cents per 100 pounds, and oil 6 cents. Cotton remains steady and speculation has lifted coffee a quarter. Butter is in large supply and has fallen six cents.

Eggs are lower and an enormous glut of vegetables has demoralized the market almost beyond precedent. Tea is still dull with no change at auction, and the grocery trade as a whole is as good as usual at this season. A slight improvement in rain freights to ljjd for wheat to Liver ooi indicates better export demand, sin- the decline in prices. There is ro ir orovement in the iron market, indeed acceptance of lower prices by some athern makers in need of money, has strengthened the impression that prices will go still lower. The cotton manufacture on the other hand, improves in outlo.

and higher prices are made for print oth and some staple goods, with an encc iraging movement. No recovery is seen in the woolens. but the large auction sale: of flannels re sulted very satisfactorily, though prices averaged 5 per cent, lower than last year's at the first and 7i per cent, lower at the second sale. The general raD ge of prices for all commodities is two per cent, lower than it was May 1st, with the apparent tendency toward stiil lower figures. Reports from the interior -how com parative dullness or quiet.

At nearly all points complaints of slowness in col lections are the rule and the number of failures in May, 21 per cent larger than last year in the United States, though smaller in Canada, shows the effect of a shrinking demand in many cases. During the past week the average price of stocks has declined about sev enty cents per share. The market con tinues quiet the hanus of the local speculators. lhe business failures during the last seven days number for the United States lob, and for Canada ly; or a total of 20o. as compared with a total of 225 last week and 150 for the corresponding week of last year, lhere is a noticeable increase this week in the failures on the Pacific coas the number there being 43, which is far above the average, lhe failures in other sections of the country are light and as a rule unimportant.

Tammany Hall Fn Route in Special Tra'us Delegates Grow More Numerous. St. Locis, June 2. Chairman Barnum, of the national democratic committee, arrived early this morning, but could not be seen at his rooms in the Southern hotel. Congressman Scott, the Pennsyl vania member of the committee, reached the city this morning.

To an Associated Press reporter Mr. Scott stated that al though he had as yet no conference with the few members of the national committee who are now in St. Louis yet, Gen. Collins, of Massachusetts, would undoubtedly be chosen permanent chair man of the convention. He could not say as to what the committee would de termine upon as to the temporary chair manship of the convention.

Mr. Armstrong, of Ohio, and Senator Ransom, of North Carolina, are also in the city and are registered at theLindell. Gen. Collins is expected to reach here early Sunday morning and will make the Planters his headquarters. The Maryland delegation and portions of the Indiana, Connecticut and Arizona delegations arrived here this morning.

Senator A. P. Gorman, who heads the delegation, was seen and cut all inter views short by saying the delegation has had no conference and consequently no choice has been agreed upon. He closed further inquiry by saving he had no preference. William G.

Wilson thought Thurman's nomination most generally favored by the Maryland people. lathe event of his refusal to be a candidate Maryland will favor a western man, in clining toward Indiana or Illinois with Indiana preferred. Robert Crain, the youngest delegate to the convention thought Judge Thurman would be the first choice of Maryland, and that the platform desired by them would be the same as proposed by Senator Gorman and adopted by the state convention, which declares in favor of a revision of the tariff, and reaffirms the resolutions of 1884, indicating how this revision shall be accomplished. The announcement of Judge Thjr- man's willingness to accept the nomination of vice-president came as a surprise to Major W. W.

Armstrong, the Ohio member of the national democratic committee. He could not credit the state ment at first and seemed at a serious loss to account tor the change ot position. "Forty-three out ot the torty-six dele gates from Ohio will meet in Columbus this afternoon, said he, "and they will probably take some action that will set tle the policy of the delegation. Three congressional districts have instructed for Black and so far as I know the re mainder is divided equally between Gray and Stevenson. The latter has eight or ten delegates and the others are solid for Gray, as they favor a man who can carry Indiana.

flGeneral i.Ji. I'owell who: appears as the Thurman spokesman, was formerly anti-Thurman, and nominated Governor Hoadly three years ago in the Chicago convention, but at the last election ran for governor of the state on the democratic ticket and since that has been a warm friend of Judge Thurman, owing to the fact that the Judge declined the nomination in his favor. This settled the animosity growing out of the division of the state over Cleveland and Hoadly. I expect Judge Thurman will be nominated by some other state, when Ohio will vote solidly for him. At present I can't see how he can be nominated by his own state.

I had no idea Judge Thurman would be an available candidate, as he has so often announced himself opposed to holding any office aud has stated repeatedly that his only candidacy now was for a seat in heaven. Yes. Judge Thurman is a very strong man and his nomination will force the republican convention to nominate John Sherman, or make Ohio a doubtful state. Col Watterson, of the Louisville Courier-Journal, who is a candidate for permanent chairman, was brief and positive in commenting on the announcement. "That removes all doubt," he said, "and Judge Thurman will be nominated by acclamation.

But two entire delegations, the California and Maryland arrived up to this hour. The Louisiana, Connecticut, Maine and Massachusetts, have telegraphed that they will be here early Sunday morning. Since the receipt to-day of "the authoritive statement, that Judge Thurman would be a candidate for the vice-presidency, leading democrats here seem to accept his nomination as a foregone conclusion. The statement is made by competent authority that Hon. W.

L. Scott, who is supposed to represent the preference of the administration, is earnestly advocating among the delegates here, the wisdom and importance to the party of Mr. Thurman's nomination. The Maryland delegation held a meeting at the Southern hotel this afternoon and talked over the question as to the candidete which it would support for the second place on the national democratic ticket. The general sentiment seemed to favor Gray, of Indiana, for the nomina tion, it being contended that he would add strength to the ticket and would secure Indiana to the democrats without doubt.

No formal action was taken, however, and the delegation will map out its course at a future meeting. The name of Thurman, of Ohio, was mentioned, and while his past services to his party and to his country were highly and warmly commended, it was generally thought that a younger and more vigorous man should be selected. In view of the possibility that the United States senate may be divided equally on political lines after the election, it was judged impolitic to nom inate for vice-president a man who does not possess the vigor necessary to meet the hardship of the campaign. It was ot the delegation, there were rumor; floating: around the corridors of the ho tels that Hon. P.

A. Collins would be ac corded the double honor of presiding over the convention, both as temporary and permanent chairman, ihis, how ever, is not probible, and the present indications are that S. M. White, of Cali fornia, will be elected temporary chair man. The Indiana delegation will visit that from California to-morrow at eleven o'clock.

renner was there ac costed by a man unknown to her, who insisted on going home with her. When the fellow saw Mr. Fanner approaching he moved on, but kept only a few feet in advance, and when Fenner approached the man turned around, drew a knife and told him to clear out, at the same time trying to stab him with the knife. The two clinched and a scuttle ensued. Fen ner had his right hand broken and re ceived a stab in the back of the head and one in the shoulder, besides other smaller cuts.

While they construed the apparent inaction of the police into silent acquiescence of the municipal authorities in their evasion of the law, the officers were quietly en gaged in accumulating evidence. To day informations, some of them contain ing as many as torty counts, were hied against seven saloon proprietors, who will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The establishment of C.

A Sugar Patent in Litigation. Leavenworth, June 2. Before Judge J. W. Brewer, of the United State circuit court, oral argument was held yesterday on a temporary injunction against Prqf.

Swanson to prevent him from having the exclusive use of his patent process of making sugar from sorghum cans. The injunction is prayed by the United States, which was represented by United States Attorney W. C. Perry. The defense filed a demurrer and was represented by Mr.

RosBington, of Topeka, and Charles Hawson, of Philadelphia. The court gave the defense fifteen days in which to file a brief, and the government ten days therefor to respond.

French Affairs.

Paris, June 2. In the chamber of deputies to-day a motion was introduced to establish a zone in northeastern France where Germans should not be allowed to reside unless they were subjected to the same restrictions as those imposed by Germany upon Frenchmen in Alsace-Lorraine.

Everyone knew the facilities enjoyed by foreigners in France. M. Goblet asked M. Laur to withdraw his motion and said he hoped the chamber would trust the government to act as the guardian of the dignity and interests of France. The motion was rejected by a vote of 50 to 7 Geainan Lutherans.

At to-day's session of the Reformed Presbyterian church of the United States, resolutions were adopted refraining from indentifi-cation with the nation so long as it refuses to acknowledge Christ as its king. Enjoining the session under the care of the synod to see members of the congregations do not identify themselves squared, but this amendment was rejected without a division, and the second paragraph of the bill "timber squared and sided" was read. Mr.

Taulbee, while approving the bill generally, felt bound to move to strike out the paragraph. Mr. Burrows read statements to show the importance of the lumber industry, which it was, he said, proposed to strike down. He said that ninety millions of dollars were paid the laborers in this industry, the third largest in the country, in one year. The statements, he said, had been made, not by his Burrows' constituents, but by those of Messrs.

Tarsney and Fisher. Mr. Cox, of New York, said that these men were almost all millionaires men who had made the forests of Michigan almost a desolation. On this point he was a protectionist. He wanted to protect the forests of the United States from the ax.

He intimated that it might become necessary to amend the rules to cut off dilatory motions. The committee rose to limit debate to ten minutes, but the republicans refused to vote, leaving the house without a quorum. Mr. Mills reminded the house that it had spent the day in the consideration of a paragraph that represented values in the bill to the amount of yesterday's debate involved $13. Finally a compromise was reached on forty minutes debate, and the house again went into committee of the whole.

Mr. Dockery, of Missouri, declared that the explanation of the failure of lumbermen's wages to increase lay in the fact that ninety per cent, of the workmen were Canadians. So it was in other industries, 33 per cent, of the men employed in our manufacturing industries were foreigners, imported under contract to compete against American labor. Applause. Mr.

Fuller, of Iowa, secured a round of applause from the democratic side by declaring that as he did not believe that the true doctrine of protection was involved in this question he should vote for free lumber. Mr. Taulbee, of Kentucky, met the same treatment at the hands of the republicans when he said that Fuller's remarks were not in connection with the real issue. He Fuller needed cheap lumber because Iowa did not produce it. He Taulbee wanted a protective duty because his district produced lumber, and he was unwilling to be controlled by any sentiment other than that of honest judgment.

Mr. Guenther, of Wisconsin, predicted that the democratic party, if it passed this bill, would go to tfiat place paved with good intentions, where every limb and knot of timber would be used not to raise the revenue, but to raise the temperature to at least six hundred degrees above zero. Laughter. Debate on the pending paragraph expiring, the amendment to strike it out was rejected by a vote (Messrs. Mills and Taulbee being the tellers) of yeas, 61; nays, 101.

The third paragraph in the bill, "Wood unmanufactured, not, specially enumerated or provided for," was then read and taken up for consideration. Mr. Byrne, of Pennsylvanie, moved to strike it out. After some debate the committee rose, leaving Mr. Byrne's amendment pending, and the house at five o'clock adjourned.

To Modify the Banking Laws. Representative Wilkins, from the committee on banking and currency, to-day reported to Jthe house a substitute for the bill introduced by him to revise and snodify the banking laws of the United States. The bill conforms to the existing law.
