The Kentucky Legislature Preparing for Balloting. By Telegraph to tlie Journal. SEW YORK, May 13.—It cost John Drury of Texas just $1,150 to sit in Battery park yesterday afternoon and talk with an engaging stranger for half an hour. Mr. Drury owns large herds of cattle and many acres of land at San Antonio, Tex. ' He went there years ago as a boy and jyrew up amoung the ranchers and wild riders of the southwest, always under the impression that he knew about all there was to know concerning: the ways of this wicked world. Drury came to ?few York, intending to sail for Europe, and met an engaging gentleman, who called himself Pietro Mariano. His new found friend helped him to exchange $1,800 in bills for foreign currency. Drury put §1,150 worth of the foreign money into a valise which he carried. The stranger invited the Texan to meet him at the Battery. When they met there Mariano had a ralise just like Drury's. The two sat on a bench watching the^ passing steamers for awhile, whtm suddenly Mariano remembered that be had an engagement up-town. Snatching his valise he hurried away, telling Drnry he would see him later. Whan the Texan opened what he supposed was his valise he found in it only a couple of bricks and some scrap-iron. He is now looking for the gentlemanly Mariano. Millers Association. By Telegraph to the Journal, FORT WAYNE, Ind..

OMAHA, Neb., May 13.—A special from Darid City, ]Seb , says a wealthy farmer named Dan Casey this morning shot and instantly killed Mrs. James Riordan, wife of a neighbor. Yesterday the Riordan cattle got into his field. In the quarrel which followed Casey was set upon by the Riordans and badly heated. This morning he came to town and bought a revolver. Aboul four miles out on his return home he met Mrs. Riordan and one of her sons in a wagon and shot her through the heart. Young Riordan jumped from the wagon B;ud was pursued by Casey for some distance, but escaped Casey is in jail. dses &rcsha.m and Woods Bury the Hatchet and Become Friendly. y Telegraph to the Journal. INDIANAPOLIS, May 13.—Tbe ap- larent reconciliation between Cir- uit Judge Walter Q. fjresham and .ml District Judge W. A. Woods is autiug much quiet comment. For a. long time there has been little ri^ndship between them. The es- rangement seems to have been ansed by a succession of events, ach more or l^ss trivial in itself. Vhen Gresham and Harrison were andidatesfor the presidency. Woods was a warm supporter of the latte^c, xnd while rhat was not the beginning f the misunderstanding it intensi- :ed it. Some months ago Judge Voods granted an application fora eceiver for the Indianapolis. Deca- ur & Western Railroad, and a few .ays later Judge Gresham came 3own from Chicago and reversed the ulliug with comments upon it of a inost galling nature. Since that ime the judges have studiously avoided each other. When Gresham .auie to this city and occupied the onrt room Woods would not show )imself about the Federal building, s; fall both gentlemen spent a lay at Springtield, 111., while he Pan-American delegates were here, and though they w*re mingling with the crowds about he Leland Hotel all day they neither iddressed nor saw each other. Cnowing all these things, the friends of the men were astonished this week when the judges met and shook lands witli some show of friendliness. The next day Judsre Woods ;ook a friend to Judge Gresham's private room and introduced him, ind the three gentlemen talked for «ome time. There is much conjecture concerning the cause of this change in attitudes, and while no one seems to fully understand it, the ominon sentiment is of approval. Imported laborers Held. By Teleeraph to the Journal. jSiBW YORK, May 13.—On bo arc the Warra, which arrived to-day were found twenty Austrians in charge of a resident of Pittsbnrg who said that his brother, who was in business in Pittsburg, had asked him to take charge of the men, wh it was understood, were to work in the mines in Pennsylvania.

Part of It Declared I'nconstltutioiial —The Question of legal Information. WASHINGTON NEWS, The Silver Bill in the Senate Still Under Discussion. By Telegraph to the Journal. CHICAGO, May 13.—A dispatch from Leavenworth, Kan., says: Judge Crosier, of the First Judicial District of Kansas, has rendered a decision declaring a part of the State prohibitory law unconstitutional. The decision was rendered in a case where the Assistant Attorney General for tbis county summoned Street Commissioner Ryan and others before him to give information under oath as to violations of the prohibitory law. Ryan and the others refused to give any information, and the Assistant Attorney General had them committed to jail for contempt Habeas corpus proceedings to secure their release were begun before Judge Crozier, who ^handed down a lengthy deeibion ordering their discharge from custody. In the decision the Judge pro nounces unconstitutional the provi sion of the law conferring power upon the Attorney General and his assistants to summon persons before them to testify as to violations o" law so that they can issue an indict ment against the persons so inform ed on, as it is an attempt to confer judicial power upon a prosecutinj officer. The* decision gires grea comfort to liquor men, and resnb missionists hefo who are preparing to make a determined fight this fal for the repeal of the prohibitory Senator Jones of Nevada Continues His Speech. The McKinley Tariff'Bill in the House. Numerous Amendments Offered and Rejected. if Telegraph tu the Journal. SKXATK. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 13.- In he Senate to-day the discussion of he silver question was continued. Mr. Davis, from the Pension Committee, reported in favor of a dis- igreeinent to the House amendment o the Dependent Pension bill. A conference was ordered, and Messrs. Davis, Sawyer and Blodgett were appointed conferees on the part of the Senate. Mr. Bate oSered a long preamble and resolution on the subject of the proposed statue to afavette in Lafayette Square, oppo'site the White House, con- condeiuuing the site selected and netructing the committee on the ibrary to examine into the matter. Agreed to. The Senate then at 1 p.m. resumed consideration of the silver bill, and ilr. Jones of Nevada, continued the speech begun by him yesterday. fears had been expressed, he said, est gold should leave the country by reason of restoring to silver its full monetary power. Such womd not 3e the case. For every gold dollar :hat left there would be a silver dol- ar circulated. If, however, gold could be kept only on condition that equality and justice should be destroyed, who doubted that it should go. 'The total amount of silver and of gold inthe world's stock was about equal; both possessed in common and neither in any higher degree than the other) all the qualities which are being held would not withdraw it absolutely. Mr. Jones said he hardly knew what the Senator meant by a silver basis or by a 72 cent dollar. He had .never seen a 72 cent dollar. Mr. McPherson—Then the Senators argument is that, after we are on a silver basis (us we certainly should be} there would be no inequality in the value of the money Because the money would be all silver. Mr. Jones—And no inequality between it and gold. Mr. McPherson—Certainly not, because there would be no old - t in circulation. You, could use your short-legged silver dollar "in the payment of debts but when you came to make new obligations, you wou d have to do so at prices equal to the difference between the value of gold and silver. Mr. Jones said that he had never heard of a shorr-legged dollar. All that talk about the withdrawal of ^.ld from circulation was a bog-v to frighten people. With the exception of a few millions on the Pacific coast, there was absolutely no gold in circulation in the United States. There was so little gold in circulation that it would be no exaggeration to say that there were millions of people in the United States whe had never ?een a gold dollar. Mr. Jones, of Arkansas, criticized the pending bill In conclusion he said: "I predict Mr. President, that the restoration of silver to its birthright will mark an epoch inthe history of this Republic. It will place in circulation an amount of money commensurate with our increasing population. It will give assurance to our languishing industries that the volume of our circulating medium is not to continue shrinking, and that the tendency of prices shall no longer be downward. It will increase the wages of labor and the prices pi the products of labor; it will reduce the price of bonds and other fortes of money futures it will lighten, but not inequitably the burden of mortgage; it wil! increase largely though not unjustly, the debt paying, and tax paying powers of the people. It will loosei the, grasp of the creditor from the neck of the debtor. Tbe lifting up of silver to its rightful plane by the side of the gold will set in motion all the latent energies of the people. In a broader sense than any other question attracting the general at tention of mankind is a question of civilization. Itembodies the hopes and aspirations of our race, The act of Congress which shall hap pily solve will co: stitute a decree of emancipation as veritable as any that ever freed serf from thraldom but more universal in its application. It will proclaim the freedom of the white race the world over; it wil lift the bowed head of labor; it wil hush the threnody of toil: it wil inaugurate the true renaissance—f renai»sance of prosperity, withou which, industry, learning, science literature, art, are but apples o Sodom. [Applause.] Mr. Blair asked Mr Jones i he meant to be understood as stating that a fall in prices of commoditie was ao absolute demonstration o: he increased value of money He Mr. Blair) supposed that the fall in jrices resulting from a protective ariff, was beneficial and was not an ndication of an increase in the •alue of money. Mr. Jones replied that the tariff, if t had the effect of reducing prieeg. .id not do so by reason of a certain lercentage being imposed upon imported goods, but by reason of the timnlus which it gave to home pro- \uction and to inventions. Mr. MePherson asked Mr. Jones whether he asserted broadly and >oldly, that with a free coinage of ilver, gold would not be driven oat if the country to a greater extent ban a dollar of gold for every addi- ional dollar of silver. Mr. Jones—Absolutely. Mr. Teller, ilr. Harris, Mr. Hoar ind other Senators engaged in a unning debate with Mr. Jones, of Arkansas. The bill then went over until to- iiorrow. After a session for the oonsid»ra- iou of executive business the Senate, it (i o'clock, adjourned uutil to- iiorrow. HOUSE. WASHIKGTOS, D. C., May 13.— 'he House to-day continued discus- ion of the tariff bill. Xumeroos •mendments were offered and re- ected. Mr. Niedringhaus. of Missouri, uoved to amend by reducing the duty on regiied borax from 3 to 3 cents per pound. He figured that a aorax syndicate in tlizs country was protected 400 per cent. Mr. Morrow, of California, thought the auaend- nent came with bad grace from Mr. Niedringhaus. Mr. O'Ferrall, of Virginia, reading a list of "excessive duties,"' said the luty on readymade clothing was in the interest of Postmaster General Wanamaker. Mr. Niedringhaus' amendment was rejected 61 to 81. Mr. Tracy, of Uew York, moved to reduce the duty on coal tar prepara- :ions from 10 to 20 per cent. Lost. Mr. McMillen. of Tennessee, at- :acked the paragraph relating to ethers and asked for an explanation of the fact that in the case of those ethers not imported the committee 3ad graciously made a reduction of 20 per cent., but had increased the :ax on these others that were im- Dorted. Mr. Dingley, of Maine, replied that as the gentleman had assisted in the preparation of the Mill's bill, which contained exactly the same language and figures, perhaps he could explain iiinself. Mr. Payne, of Xew York, explained that the reduction was made fin the case of sulphuric ether, used for legitimate purposes and the increase made in the case of those ethers used a? food adulterants. Mr. McMillen made an unsuccessful effort to reduce the duty on gelatine, glue and isinglass, which was followed by an equally futile effort on the part of Mr. McAdoo, of N. J., to have poppy seed oil placed on the free list." Mr. Briggs, of California offered an amendment increasing the duty on olive from 35 to 50 cents a gallon. Lost. After considering 13 of the 156 paragraphs of the bill the committee rose, and the House at 5:45 adjourned until to-morrow.

Morris, for the Louisiana State Lottery Company, to-day offered the State Legislature new in session at Baton Rough $100,000 a year for the extension Of their charter of the company for twenty-Sve years, or $2,500,000 for the entire term. The question monopolizes political attrition and will occupy the time of tne Legislature until disposed of. The light in that body promises to be long and bitter, and with the cbances at present in favor of the lottery company. All the city papers urge the acceptance of the bid, but a new journal, the Delta, which bas made its appearance and supports the Governor in his opposition to tne lottery ^_ license Revoked.
