Opinions Expressed That the Tarift'Will lie an Issue iii'92. Explorer Stanley Disapproves of the English Position And Favors Aggressive Action Against Germany in Africa. By Cable to the Journal. LONDON, May 12.—There was a notable gathering of free traders at the Cobden Club to-day. The occasion being the presentation of an address to Mr. Thomas Bayley Pottsr, Glad- stoniau member- of parliament for Rochdale. Mr. Potter for several years occupied the position of treasurer of the club and is rncognized as one of the highest authorities on tariff members in England. The address was presented by Mr. Gladstone, who in the course of his speech referred to the anti-Chinese legislation in the United States. Owing to the ambiguity of the legislation on the Chinese question he said, he -was not altogether clear •whether the government taxed Chinese who entered or barred them all all out. Aayvray, he tuought that the Chinese were to be dreaded more for their virtues than their vices, which he did not believe to be nearly so expensive or flagrant as the grounds taken for their exclusion alleged. In an interview subsequently, Mr. Potter declared it to be his eonriotion that tho tariff question would again be the issue in tbe Pres- dential campaign in America in 1832 when the free traders, of tariff reformers, would in all probability be successful. Mr. Henry M. Stanley is giving way to au exhibition of ill-temper which discloses in his character an element of egotism which threatens to increase the numbers of his enemies if allowed to remain uncurbed. Just now he is complaining of the cowardice of the public meu and the press of England in not taking an aggressive position against Germany in Africa at his behest and is inclined to be-little the intellectual abilities of those who do not agree with him in the matter of England's position on the question. He admits, however, that there it plenty of room in Africa for both Germany and England, but thinks that an English -railroad should be constructed at once to connect the lakes and place that region beyond the possibility of occupation by other powers. Such a railroad he asserts, would open the interior to trade, the value of which can scarcely be estimated. He expresses admiration for Major Wissman, but is disinclined to speak of Emin.or of his new expedition. Throughout the interview in which Mr. Stanley expresses himself as; above, he -referred to himself as an Englishman. Mrs. Frank Leslie h.Ets arrived in Londori'and her contfeg has aroused the Maj-quis de Leuville.to activity. The presence of.the.lady in London was the signal for ' the Marquis to begin the circulation of reports that her visit had for its object her marriage to himself, and the industry he has displayed in their dissemination provokes surprise and disgust. The'French government has recognized Hypolite as President of the Haytien Republic. A MYSTEIUOUS SHOOTIWG. A Millionaire and His Mistress Enck Charges tiie Other With Intent , to Kill. By Telegraph to the Journal. NEW YORK, May 11.—Murah Masterson, sajd to be a millionaire mine owner, and ex-Judge of Prescott, Arizona, and Alice M. Hopkinson, with whom he had been living in the fashionable apartment house, 65 West Thirty-sixth street, were locked up at the Thirtieth street police station to-night, each having charged the other with assault with iutent to kill. The arrests grew out of the firing of a pistol-shot in the apartments occupied by the couple, and the cause of the trouble is said to have been jealousy. The police are uncertain as to which fired the shot. Jennie Bradley, colored and her husband, George Servants, in the house are also under arrest as witnesses. The servants say that Mr. Materson forced his way into the flat tonight, after a brief separation due to a quarrel and a shot was soon heard. They rushed in a saw a pistol in Mr. Masterson's hand, but he declared that, he had wrested it *frotn the woman after she had fired at him. Mr. Masterson is said to have a wife living in the city. He claims that the Hopkinson woman obtained $10,000 from him by false pretenses. She says the moneys-was her own, and that the ex-Judge invested it for her. A well-known man about town who has recently been considerably in the womans company is said to have aroused the jealousy -which led to the shooting. I enping FavsengerB wiirt Crew Tomahawked by XaUves. By Telegraph to the Journal. AJT FRA.NCISCO, May 12.—News was received here last night by the steamer Xealander, that in a jjreat storm March 4, the schooner Elim Mary was driven on the reefs at Mallicoloin, the New Hebrides. It was impossible to see anything in the blinding rain 'till just before the ship struck. There were on board at the time a crew of eighteen uien, two passengers, forty-four recruits and fifteen returning laborers, making a total of seventy-nine. The first boat which was lowered was manned by four white men and several of the blayk crew. The boat •was dashed to pieces while going on shore and the four white men were drowned. Those who remained ou board the ship were saved. Several of the recruits swatu for the shore and were either drowned or killed after landing. One boy had to fight his way from the shore to the Mission Station, distant ten miles. He, with twenty of his companions, went with some natives to a village near the coast. They were given food, but, while eating, the savages set upon them and began tomahawking the castaways. The boy ran and escaped. In all four white men and forty-seven blacks were lost.

WASHINGTON NEWS. The Silver Bill Under Discussion in the Senate. Senator .Tones Speaks for Three Hours on the Subject. Favoring Kemonetizatioii and an Increased Currency. Further Action on the Tariff JJill in the House. By Telegraph-to the Journal. SKNATK. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 12.—The feature of to-day : s Senate proceedings was a long speech by Mr. Jones of .Nevada, in support of his silver bill. Senator Jones sp6ke for three hours on the silver^ bill. Senator Jones claimed the closest attention attention from Senators on botli bides of of the Senate chamber. He made a strong argument in favor of the free coinage of silver, increased volume of currency, the reuionetiza- tioa of silver and bi-metalism. Mr. Hoar from the Judiciary committee reported baek the House amendment to the Senate anti-trust bill with au amendment. Messrs. Vest and Coke stated that as members of tbe committee they did not concur in the report; and Mr. Hoar explained the effect of tbe action recommended. The matter went over until to-morrow. Mr. Jones, of Jfevada, then took the floor and spoke in support of tne bill reported from the finance committee authorizing the issue of treasury nutes on deposits of silver. At the outset he spoke of the general unrest prevailing throughout the country. The prices of all commodities, he said, had fallen, and continued to fall. Such a phenomenon, as a constant and progressive fall in the general range of prices had always exercised so baneful an influence on the property of mankind that it, never failed to excite attention. When a fall in prices was found operating on the products of all industries, when it was found not to t>3 confined to any one clime, country or race, 3ut to be diffused over the civilized world—found not to be a characteristic of any one year, but to go for a series of years, it became manifest that it could not arise from local, temporary or subordinate causes, that it must have its genesis aud developement in some principal of universal application What was it, he asked, that produced a general decline of prices in any country? It was a shrinkage in the volume of money relative to the population and business. The world had never had a proper system of money. Prosperity and population had been stimulated at times by great yields from mines; and when these mines were worked out, then came revulsion and adversity. H<; went on to speak of the natural ratio between gold and silver existing for 2,500 or 3,000 years—a ratio of 15J to 1—and said that it was oaly since the legislative proscription of silver in Germany aud the United States aud its banishment from the mines of Europe that any material change in that ratio took place; and that the present divergence in the relative value of the two metals was directly due to the legal outlawry of silver, and not to any natural causes. It had always been the object of the financiers t6 enhance the value of money by reducing its volume so that when the gold mints of the world were producing the largest yield it was proposed to demonetize gold. The uiotiye of demonetization in the case of gold as well as silver was to aggrandize the creditor class of the word, and confiscate,"so far as practicable the rewards of the hardy toilers. The demonetization of silver by Germany after her war with France, he said, inflicied greater evils on her people than her armies had inflicted on France. And when that evil began to have its effect, a veritable hegira of the German population began to take place. The demone- tization of silver by the United States in 1873 hw regarded as one of those fatal blunders that were worse than the evil sought to be remedied. No better remedy could be applied than the absolute reversal of that legislation, and putting back the monetary system of the country to what it was before 1873. Mr. Jont-s .warmly defended the silver miners from the charge of seltishnesi- iu desiring the reinouitza- tion of silver. The silver miners, he said, were as enduring, as eager, as vigorous, as adventurous as the Argonauts of old. They had nevar asked any favors of the government and they asked none now. Their calling was an honorable one and 'nneded no defence. At the suggestion uf llr. Teller, Mr. Jones postponed finishing his remarks until to morrow. The Senate went into secret session arid in a few moments adjourned. HOUSE. WASHlKGTOtf, D. C., May 12.-The House passed the day in discussion of tbe tariff bill. After considerable argument amendments wer» called and several were moved but failed to carry. Mr. Anderson, of Kansas, offered an amendment providing that the President may suspend the rate of duty on any imported article when m his judgment the production, manufacture or • sale o" such article is monopolized or attempted to be controlled by any trust or combination. Mr. Andersons amendment was adopted, on a division—vote 87 to 78 Mr. Anderson and Mr. Owen of lu- diana'being the only Republicans voting in favor of it. The announcement of the vote was received with applause on the Democratic side. On a vote by tellers the amendment was rejected ayes. 91, nays 110. The Republicans in turn greeted the announcement of the vote with applause. Mr. Bland of Slist-ouri offered an amendment proposing to admit free foreign goods when exchanged for American products. He argued that the American farmer would be relieved from the oppression of trusts and enabled to realize the full benefit of his toil by the adoption of his amendment. Rejected: yeas, 72; nays, 92. Mr. Breckenridge. of Kentucky, offered au amendment proposing to change the date upon which the bill is to take effect from July 1st next to July 1, 1891; arguing that, the business interests of the country would be rudely disturbed if the bill should o into effect at once. Mr. McKinluy said that the bill should go into effect as soon as possible after enactment, so as to prevent importers from tilling up our markets with goods upon which the djjties were increased. Jus^ when the bill would become a law fie could not say; but he felt that it should take effect as soon as possible. The amendment was rejected, ayes 74, nays, D2. The bill was then read by sections for proposed amendments. Mr. Niedringhaus, Mo., proposed an amendment making commercial boracic acid dutiable at 3 instead of 5 cents per pound. Rejected. Mr. Covert, N. Y., moved to strike out the clause imposing a duty of & quarter of a cent a pound on muri- atic acid, and followed his motion with an argument against the bill, as not being for the benefit of agricultural interests. Mr. Perkins, of Kansas referred to the Democratic solicitude concerning the welfare of the farmers of Kansas. He was satisfied that the arguments indulged in would nat deceive the farmers. It was unfortunately true, he said, that for five years or more the agricultural interests had been depressed. Every day that Cleveland was President farms depreciated in value, (applause on the Republican side,) but there were sign?x>f a removal of thatdepression in agriculture by the inspiration of the proposed legislation of a Republican Congress Mr. Breckeuridge, of Ky.. ridiculed the speech made by Mr. Perking, of Kansas, and expressed his gratification that with the farmers of Kansas, everytliiag was lovely. He hoped that the Farmers Alliance would accept the assurance that everything- was lovely. After further debate, Mr. Covert's amendment was rejected, as well as another to strike out the duty on sulphuric acid. The committee then rose at 5:40 p. m., the House adjourned until 11 o'clock to-morrow. CASE t:onie» l"r> for a H^aruia—Me is Remanded to Prison. By Telegraph to the Journal. AUBURX, N. Y. May 12.—The habeas corpus writ in the case of innr- derer Win. Kemuieler sentenced to death by electricity, issued by Judge Corlett, of Buffalo, on application of Charles S. Hatch came up before Judge Underwood here to-day. By stipulation of the counsel, Kemmeler was not present. W. Bourke Cock- rau, of Sow York, and Charles S. Hatch, of Buffalo, appeared for Kemmeler, and Attorney General Tabor represented Agent and Warden Durston to whom the writ is is- bued. The proceedings were very brief. The writ and answer of the Attorney General were filed and Mr. Cockran stated that the point raised waa wheter the court of Oyer and Terminer, of Erie County had jurisdiction to pronounce the sentence imposed. The particular point made is that the legislature had cot the constitutional power to take from the sheriff, who is a, constitutional officer, his power to inflict capital punishment, that having been one of, his powers from time immemorial, and to confer those powers upon another not a constitutional officer. The obiect of the proceedings was not to delay tbe execution, bat to submit in good faith the question to the court.". He was willing and hoped that the case could be disposed of speedily. By stipulation no argument was to be made on either side and it was agreed that Judge Underwood should enter judgment pro forma, denying the writ and re- mandinfr the prisoner to the custody of the Warden, which was dooe. Mr Cockran also entered a demurrer to the answer of Wardei Durston and tho demurrer was overruled Mr. Cockran stated that the same cotirso would be taken before the general term and it was expected that the case could be brought before the court of appeals for argument in June.
