He Kail the Town With a Shot (inn and Forced His Ke-Eleetien With Threats—A JReign ef Terror Knau&nrated. By Tclegrapli to the Journal. CEDAR KEYS, Fla.. May.—14 Four deputy United States Marshals arrived here late last night for the purpose of arresting Mayor Cottrell and his Marshal, Mitchell on the charge of assaulting customs collector Pinkerton, and inte rfe'ring •with him in the prosecuting of government business. This action of the government authorities is the result of a long series of outrages perpetrated by Cottrell in most if which he has been aided and abetted by Marshal Mitchell A genuine reign of terror has existed here, the facts of which will probably never be known until Cottrell is safe behind the bars, for the people do not dare to speak against him so so long as he is at liberty. The United States officers succeded in arrest- ien Mitchell this morning, but Cottrell was apprised of their coming and is now in hiding. They are on his trail, however, and hope to arrest him soon. Cottrell, besides the office of Mavor has been inspector of customs. He had charges preferred against him at the Treasury depart ment at Wsahington and was forced to resign his position. This was after the appointment of Collector Pinkerton by President Harrison. A week ago Cottrell met Piukerton and asked him -to open the Custom House to get some things he had left there. Pinkerton refused, as it was after office hours. Cottrell then threatened Pinkerton's life and Cottrell gave notice that if he appeared on the streets of Cedar Keys he would be shot by CottreU. Pinkerton did not leave tbe house for a day or two, and Cottrell tried to persuade a negro to go in and pull him out. The negro refused and was beaten by Cottrell Pinkerton was kept from going to the office by the fact that Cottrell was gunning for him on the streets and the business of the Government was thus seriously interfered with. For about a year Cottrell has been a terror to the citizens here. He has compelled a negro to beat a telegraph operator; he has threatened to thrash women whose husbands had incurred his displeasure; he has kept men locked np in jail for days at a time for no cause whatever he has paraded the streets with a loaded shotgun threatening to kill anybody who came in bis way; has shot at the light house keeper "in the streets; has cut another man with a jack knife and has actually forced a re-election as mayor because it was worth a mans life to vote against him. Those who knew Cottrell best say that he will never be taken-alive and it is rumored tonight that he will come to town and attempt tbe rescue of Marshal Mitch- elLS YESTERDAY'S BASE BALI*.

Pay By Telegraph to the Journal. NEW YORK, May 14.—Harry Hill is broke. The famous old sport's last abiding place in Harlem has been finally closed and all its goods sold by auction. "Lack of police protection" is the cause. Ten years ago Hill was reputed to be worth $500,000, but he never really had that much money. His place at Houston and Crosby streets was the most famous resort for sporting men in the country. To-day the man is without means. All his possessions have vanished in a bitter fight-with the police. He has been driven from pillar to post, and is now helpless and alone. His best friend, or at. least the one whom he trusted most, desert*d bira a few years ago with $35,000 of his money. For many years Hill enjoyed the friendship of the police, but about four years ago he complained that he was compelled to pay too much for "protection." From that time until a lew days ago he was engaged in a constant war with the authorities. Where he will go now or -what he will do is not known. Hantinjrton Game Blocked. Br Telegraph to the Journal. NBW YORK, May 13.—Justice O'Brien of the Supreme court hag decided in faror of the plaintiffs in the suit of Michael Grernsheim & Co. against Frederick P. Olcott as President of the Central Trust Company and others This suit was brought to prerent the issue of the new stock to the Houston & Central railroad Company upon tbe Allegation that the scheme WB.S one for the benefit of C. P. Hnntington and his associates in the Southern Pacific Company. The ff ature to which Gernsheiiu & Co objected as stock holders was that, which involved a tax of $75 per 100 shares, if they wished to remain iu the company. This tax, the plaintiffs claimed, was a simple game of freeze out. in as much as they had already paid their interest, and it •was provided tbat the Southern Pacific company could take unclaimed stock at a much more favorable rate. The case has been in the courts many months, and "was recently amended after it was discovered that the proposed assessment was not made with authority. WASHINGTON NEWS. Senator Teller Begins Argument on the Silver Bill. The Senate Goes into Executive Session and Bills Pass. Conference Ordered on the Dependant Pension Bill. Continuation of the Tariff Discussion in the Honse. By Telegraph to the Journal. SKKATK. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 14.— After reading of the Journal Senator Teller took the floor and began an argument on the silver bill. Without concluding his speech at 2:30 Mr. Teller yielded to a motion to go into executive session. The doors were re-opened at 3:05 p. m. and on "motion of Mr. Ingalls tbe silver bill was laid aside informally till to-morrow and the Senate proceeded to business on the calendar. The following bills among others w»re passed: Senate bill granting right of way to the Red Lake & Western railway and Navigation Company across the Red Lake reservation in Minnesota, and granting said company the right to take lands for terminal railroad and warehouse purposes. Senate bill to provide for the issuing and recording of coma'iBsions in the Treasury department. Senate bill for the relief of Major Goodloe, paymaster U. S.

At 4:30 p. tn. the Senate adjourned until to-morrow. HOUSE. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 14.—On motion of Mr. Morrill (Kas.) the House insisted on its amendment to the Senate Dependent Pension bill, and a conference was ordered. The House then went into Committee of the Whole, Mi. Grosvenor (O.) in the chair, on the tariff bill. Mr. McMillen (Tenn.) moved to reduce the duty on decorated chinaware from 60 to 45 per cent., stating that the sixty per cent, duty proposed, taken in connection with the package clause of the Admiuistra- tivee Customs bill, amounted to a considerable increase from existing rates. Mr. McKinley denied that the increase would be material. There might be an increase of about 5 per cent., but tbat increase was necessary to continue the expense of the China industry in this country. Mr. McMillin's motion was defeated—various other amendments looking to a reduction of the doty on earthen and glass ware were made on the Democratic eide, but met with no success. in the course of tbe discussion of one of these amendments Mr. McMillen alluded to a Mr. Campbell, of Pittsburg, a glass manufacturer asking fur protection from foreign labor, while he was charged with importing foreign labor in violation of the contract labor law. Mr. Bergen N.O. ventured to gay that Mr. Campbell was a Democrat. Mr. Bynuui, (Ind.) said that on the contrary Mr. Campbell was an ardent supporter of Mr. Harrison. Mr. Bayne(Pa.) testified to the goo.1 reputation enjoyed by Mr. Campbell. Mr. Bynum denounced Campbell as a perjurer. Campbell had come before the Ways and Means committee and bad held a consultation with tbe gentleman from West Virginia', Mr. Wilson, and himself; and then had gone away and made an affidavit which was false from beginning to end, and had Campbell ever came into his (Byuum's) district he would be in trie cell of the prison to-day. Mr. Bayne said that be would take Mr. Campbell's word as soon as he would that of the gentleman from Indiana, and be knew them both. Campbell was the cbosen representative of a large organization of reputable workingmen and any insult or indignity offered to him was offered to them. Mr. Wilson (W. Va.) confirmed what the gentleman from Indiana had said. In the public press and on every stump he had felt it his duty to denounce Campbell a perjurer. NO. 115. In the course of some further remarks, Mr. Rynum said that the Committee on Ways and Means in. the formation of its bill, had closed the doors of the capitol against the labor of tbe country, but admitted the manufacturers. The majority of the committee raised the curtain and peeped out to gee who was there. Mr. Flowered. Y.)bore testimony to the fact that the committee had heard all industriesthathadrequest- ed a hearing. Mr. McKinley said that the imputation of the gentleman from Indiana was falsp. He did not permit any man to impute to the coinmitte any bad motives or any lack of courtesy to the minority. Mr. Chandler (Mass.) offered on amendment fixing the rate of duty on lamp chimneys at 45 percent ad valorem. Lost 55 to 77. Having considered sixteen of the 156 pages of the bill, the committee rose and the House at G o'clock adjourned until 11 o'clock to-morrow. CHIKESK LABOR. WASHINGTON, D. G.. May 14.—The Secretary of the Treasury sent to the Senate to-day a report of Datu E. Conn, Chinese inspector of the department at San Diego, dated April 21. Mr. Conn writes- that the Chines? are coming into the United States despite the effort of the custom's officers to keep them out. Th« arrests made last month, he think* had a salutary effect in checking the traffic. Twenty-sii Chinaman are now in custody, and the Portugese captain, of the schooner Benicia Boy is in jail for having brought ten. Chinamen -within the United States unlawfully. One of tbe Chinese employers of the captain has been arrested on the captain's confession and the other is being pursued. Thirty complaints were filed by Mr. Coon with the United States Commissioner during the month. Mr. Coon thinks the present force entirely inadequate to prevent the smuggling which is going on over the Mexican border. The Scott act be says is practically a failure because while a Chinaman is under arrest he Is able to make arrangements with his friends to bring him in again and to take him to some other town where he will not be known. The smuggling of chinamen is Tery profitable and has heavv capital behind it. The price paid "in China for each chinaman safely landed in the U. S. is §140. The order of the secretary of the treasury prohibiting the transfer of chinamen in transit at San Francisco, Mr. Coon says, was most fortunate and will check the traffic for a time. But as Canada is too cold and Mexico too poor for the Chinamen he thinks some other method of getting- in will be found. Unless treaties on the subject are made with Great Britain and Meiico. he thinks the exclusion ofthe Chinese will be very difficult. Mr. Coon thinks the bills which provide for the return of the China- men to their country from which they were smuggled in.are defective, he thinks this provision expensive and useless. He thinks the China men after trial should be returned to their own country with the threat that if found in America again they will be imprisoned for a, long term. He thinks also that a photograph should be given with each Chinese certificate. B.«T,l,OTlXti FOU SEXATOR. Carlisle in the ticail and His Election Predicted. By Telegraph to the Journal.
