YESTJBKDAY'S BASE BAH. Another Fire in the Laundry, Started by a Maniac. Three Hundred Lunatics "Wandering- About. Barns and Dwellings Fired, and ^Residents Alarmed. By Telegraph, to the Journal. MONTRKAL, Quebec, May 7.—The last report of the Longue Pointe Asylum authorities to the Legislature showed that there were 1,780 inmates instead of 1,300as recently stated. The general opinion to-night is that at least 150 inmates were burned to death. A coroner's inquest will be held to-morrow. It is now known that many of the wards were locked up and the firemen did not reach them to break in the doors so that whole room-fulls of inmates perished. The patients are ,now confined in houses in the vicinity and are being cared'for comfortably. MONTREAL, .Canada, May 7.- At 11 o'clocs this morning the fire alarm sounded the big bell in Notre Dame parish church and when it became noised about that another fire had! broke out in the laundry of Longue Poi'Jte asylum, where three or four hundred of the unfortunates were sheltered last night, the excitement was intense. A dispatch from there sayc: "The fire was again the work of a maniac, as in the ease of the asylum itself. The Montreal fire brigade was quickly on the spot, and by this time it is well under control and no casualties of any importance are reported. ''Dr. Bourque, the physician of the asylum, says the loss of life in yesterday's lire will certainly exceed fifty, but it is utterly impossible to obtain any reliable information. There are quite three hundred missing and many are roaming at large all over the island. An epidemic of incendiarism seems to exist and reports are coming in that the maniacs are firing barns and outbuildings. The police ha'l a difficult task last nisht keeping order, and many disgraceful outrages by drunken lookers-on from the city on the helpless imbeciles are reported." SHK IH33TOUKCE* KJEHMAJS.

By Telegraph to the Journal. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., May 7.—Princess Enpalavitchoff, of Russia, who is travelingthrough this country,arrived here to-day and in an interview severely criticized the statements of George Kennan regarding abuses to Russian prisoners.

She says there are, no doubt, some abuses in Siberia, but the perpetrators are always punished when detected. ElEVKSf HC!VJ»ItKI> OUT. Ironworkers and Tanners at Chicago Strike.

Desperate Kncouiitcr Wins a Item 1 by Some One Xot \Vt Fotn,<l. By Telegraph to the Journal. PINK CREEK, Pa., May 7.—George Decker and Mahlon Price, who were returning homo from trout fishing on Kettle creek on Saturday, stumbled upon the dead body of a b'g bear in the woods in the brush only a snort distance from tlie creek. The bear had evidently been dead some days. In one of its claws was the torn and bloody sleeve of a oor- duroy coat which" had bfen torn from the coat at the shoulder. The bear lay on its side, and half hidden by it was a Smith &Wesson revolver, a fix-shooter, all the chambers being empty. There were evidences of a struggle in the bushes around where the bear lay, aud the ground on all sides of the bi-ar was staiued with blood' No one in the vicinity has had a bear light recently and to whom the coat sleeve and pistol belong is a mystery. The bear had six builet holes ill its head, showing that whoever had owned the pi>toi had made good use of it. Thinking that whoever he may have been he might have received injuries ill the fight that proved fatal, and that he had died somewhere in the woods thereabout, a large party hunted the woods all day Sunday, but without finding any justification of their fe»rs. The tightnmst have occurred a week ago. A 8WEI.JJ WK»I>»3f«. Theo!«re Thomas, ihe Musical »irec- tor, Married at Chicago. By Telegraph to the Journal.

The Silver Bill Under Discussion in the Senate. Xo Action Taken, but a Diversity of Opinion Shown. The House Begins Discussion of the Tariff Bill. McKlnley, Mills and Other Members Participate. By Telegraph to tho Journal. SENATJS. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 7.—In the Senate to-day Mr. Gibson presented resolutions of the Mississippi River Improvement convention, lately held in Vicksburg, and of the Southern Press association, recently in session iu Charleston, S. C., in favor of the levee system and of the Ea,ds system. House bill to authorize the Secretary of War to deliver to the State of Colorado the flags carried by Colorado regiments during the war of the rebellion, was reported and pas»ed; also House bill to amend the act to divide the State of Missouri into two judicial districts. Senate bill to extend for three years and to amend an act to authorize the Fort Worth & Denver City Railway Company to contract aud operate a railway through the ludiau Territory was taken from the calendar and passed. House bill for the issuance of ordinance stores and supplies to .the State of Maine to replace similar stores destroyed by fire on the 7th of January last was reported and passed. Mr. Orray moved to the consideration of the bill to transfer the revenue and marine service to the navy d^purtuient. Agreed to, ayes 30, nnys 24. Mr. Cockrell opposed the bill on the ground that no public interest required its passage; that, it was only for the interest of the officers of the revenue uiariue service, whose rank, and salaries would be increased. Mr. Cockrell was still speaking when, at 2 o'clock, the presiding officer announced that, under last Fridays agreement, thn bill would be laid a*ide aud the Senate would proceed to the consideration of the Senate bill authorizing the issue of treasury notes on deposit of silver bullion. The bill haying been read in extenso, Mr. Stewart asked unanimous consent that it be postponed until Tuesday next. Mr. Vest objected. He did not know he said, what arrangements had been made outside of the chamber, nor diit h« care. His judgment was that the silver bill was the most important bill on the calauder; that it ought to be disposed of, and that it had been unreasonably delayed. Mr. Plumb and Mr. Teller admitted the force of Mr. Vest's argument but urged the advii*ibilitv of waiting for I he return of Mr. Jones of Nevada, who was in charge of the bill and who had left tbe city, with the idea that the matter would not be taken up. . The presiding officer put the re- quei-t of Mr. Stewart at unanimous consent, but Mr. Vest objected and the bill therefore, was taken up. Mr. Sherman moved to amend by inserting a new section repealing all laws that require money deposited in the treasury under section 5222 of the Revised Statutes to be held as a special fund for the redemption of National bank notes, and covering that money into the treasury; also covering into the treasury sums deposited under section 4 of The act of June 20, 1874, -'fixing the amount of U. S. notes." Mr. Plumb moved to amend the amendment by inserting a provision that, hereafter, no funds available for the payment of public df bt, including such as are kept, for the redemption of treasury notes, shall be retained iu the treasury in excess of $110.000,000 and made a statement in explanation and wdvo- c«,i-.y of it. Mr. Sl)3rtnan opposed Mr Plumb's amendment. Mr. Reauan criticized the policy of the retention in the treasury of the hundred millions of gold held as a special fund for the redemption of greenbacks. Mr. Blair asked Mr. Reagan what amount of gold it would be prudent to hold to meet a possible "run" ou the treasury for payment of the $346,000,900 of greenbacks now iu circulation? Mr. Reagan replied that there was always an aburidmice of goH iu the treasury without any special reservation of it. A long colloquy occurred between Senators Reagan, Blair, Aldrich and others. It was again suggested that in the absence of Mr. Jones, the silver bill will be allowed to go over till TUBS day next. Mr. Vest said that if he were the only Senator to object he would not stand in the way; but several other Senaturnsaid that, they llso objected.' Finally the difficulty was got. over, for the day, bv the suirgest.ion on the y&rt of Mr. Sherman that the senate proceed to executive business No vote was tak en on either of the pendinor amendments and Mr. Vest and. Mr. Teller pave notice of substitutes which they would offer for the whole bill Conference reports were presented anrl agreed to on the bills for public buildings at Cedar Rapids Iowa, Lafayette, Indiana, Ashland Wis.. Tuscaloosa Ala. and Chester Pa. and a conference -was asked on the bill for a public building at Hudson. The Senate then proceeded to executive session, and at 6 o'clock adjourned till to-morrow. HOUSK. WASHI^QTON, D. C., May 7.—The long expected tariff debate began in. House to-day rather tamely. The rowd of spectators in the galleries was neither larger nor smaller than usual, and there was no indication of any absorbing popular interest in the subject. General Benj. T. Sutler was a prominent iigureon the fl.ior in close Liroximity at the opening to Mr. MoKinley. Rather 'o the surprise of those members who had prepared themselves for an attack on king Caucus, because of the limited time which will be allowed for the general debate, Mr. McKitiley re"rained from presenting the iron clad rule wh.ch was expected so that the anticipated preliminary wrangle was avoided. Although Mr. McKfn- ley was granted unlimited time to present his argument ho had stated n advance that he would not occupy much more than an hour, and the indications are that the speakers who follow will also reduce their speeches to small compass. Exclusive of the promised night Bess-ions, which the more notable speakers avoid whenever possible, there will ae in all but twenty hours of general debate. Following the established custom, the thirteen members of the Ways and Means Committee mast each be allowed an hour, or thirteen hours in the aggregate, so that bat seven of the daylight hours will remain for partition among the remaining 315 members of the House At the conclusion of Mr. McKiti- iey's speech, Mr. Mills, of Texas, spoke. At the evening session the debate on the tariff was resumed. The first speaker was Mr. O'Donnell o£ Michigan, who addressed hi« remarks more and especially to the sugar question. The bill he said, reduced taxation on a household necessity and opened the avenue of progress and prosperity by a bountiful provision, the effect of which would be to secure sugar at lower prices to the consumer. Mr. Post, of Illinois, favored the bill and argued that the depression existing in the country was not attributable to the protective tariff. Mr. Ellis, of Kentucky, said that the Republican party had been charged with a failure to carry out the pledges it had made to the people, and especially to the soldier; but no one would be reckless enough to pretend that it had not fullT redeemed all the pledges it had made to the manufacturing in terests. wUich it made the objects of its bounty. The House then, at 10:25, ajourned until to-morrow. UI>OOD TELL. At I,rant This Particular "JBloo«Pr Will at the Proper Time. By Telegraph to the Journal. BOSTON. Mass., May 7.—A Dover, N. H. special to the Globe says that County Solicitor, John Kivel, has received a letter from Dr. Charles Blood, revealing his whereabouts— with relatives near the Canada line— and offering to become a government witness in the trial of Isaac Sawtelle for the murder of his brother, Hiram Sawtelle. Blood writes that he can prove, the charges against him in Sawtelle's confession to be untrue. He denied having met Sawtelle in the Astor House, New York, as stated by the latter, that he was with Sawtelle any time daring the month prior to the murder or that he was in New Hampshire when the crime was committed and asserts his ability to establish an alibi. He says he can prove Sawtelle to be a liar by evi- dei-»e other than his own, and asks for doing this only the assurance that he shall have the protection which the government always accords its Witnesses. Sentiment. By Telegraph to the Journal. NBW YORK, April 7.—A large and animated met-ting of the Confederate veterans of New STork was held at the New York Hotel last night for the purpose of completing detaite for the trip to see tbe unveiling of the Loe- nionutrient. Mr. Jobs HUberts proffered the flag that floated from the ram Savannah at the tima of Sherman's 'march to the sea, which brought out an eloquent little speech from Major Joe H. Stewart. He did not want to see the Confederate flaar unfurled. "We will never forget it," said he "but we should let it rest forever. Should we carry the flag it would awaken adverse, unkind, yet, f believe just criticism. We are a'l patriots here This is my country— not. Virginia, not New York, not Texas, my old State, but the whole broad land. Let us carry only the National colors." These sentiments were received wi'h unanimous applause, and it was decided to carry only the Stare and Stripes.with two guidons denignating it aa a body of New York Confederate veteran*.
