JSKTV YORK, May 15.—A terrible tragedy occurred in Wall street this morning when a vindictive young man, Alphonze J. Stephanie, shot and mortally wounded Lawyer Clinton G. Reynolds, of the law firm of Harrison & Reynolds, 69 Wall street. Th« murderer was but a few hours in the city, having only arrived on the White Star Steamship, Majestic, from Liverpool. The cause of the shooting; is as fallows: Up to two years ago Stephanie's father was engaged in tb« fr«it importing business in this «ity. At that time he died, leaving his wife, Alphonse'a mother, sole executrix. Alphonse carried on the business, bat was turning it into cash and it appears that he realized about $50,000 and placed it with a Br»adw»y Safe Deposit Company. His mother and brother objected. About two months ago he quarreled with her,, told her that he would have the money some time, anyhew, and weund up by assaulting her. About a month ago he sailed for Europe, and from the hotel bills found on him seems to have been at Prankfort-on-the-Main and in London. During his absence his mother consulted Lawyer Reynolds, who advised her to issue attachments against him and the safe deposit companv to prevent his using the money. " He probably heard of this after his arrival this morning and at once weut to the lawyers' rooms and entered the inner office. In the outer office were Managing Clerk John L. Butterle and a client, John F. Cowan, of Newark N. J. After an interval of ten minutes a shot was heard, and Mr. Butterle burst in the door aod saw Stephanie with a smoking revolver in his hand. He at once knocked Stephanie down, and with the aid of Mr. Cowan held him on the floor until Policeman Edwards, of the Qld Slip Station, ar rested him. Mr. Reynolds was found to be shot and mortally wounded in the left side, below the heart. He was at once removed in an ambulance to the Chambers street hospital. Stephanie when arrested had the weapon used, an ugly looking new bulldog revolver of English pattern and 33-caliber, one chamber of which was discharged. At the station house, when searched, there was found on him about $1,000 in cash, all of which, with the exception of about $35 was in German and English money. He had a bill of the Westminster Palace Hotel, London; a bill of a Frankfort holel, a United States passport.dated April 14, and what was evidently an advertisement in English, but of German ealigrapby, seeking a position in a banking house. Stephanie was born September 28, 1805, in Philadelphia. There seems to be no doubt that the shooting was the outcome of bis rage at finding that Lawyer Reynold's advice had foiled his plan to obtain the money he had on deposit. DEWENTER, The Hatter, QUEALY'S OLD STAND, Bj Telegraph to the Journal. NEW ALBANY, May 15.—A prophetess dwells in that section of Harrison county known as "Blunk Knob," ami she is called mother Bowers, She is a large, fleshy woman, aged about seventy, and the mother of a daughter who tips the beam at 340. Her husband and son constitute the remainder of the family, both of slight build. Mrs. Bowers peculiar ability to read the stars arid prophecy happenings has won her great renown in that region, and evon hundreds of people from a distance have visited her to secure information and counsel on personal affairs. She not only predicts affairs of sentimental and financial character, but she is a political soothsayer of no small dimensions. She foretold the election of Tilden and Hendricks, but claimed they would not be inaugurated. When Governor Gray rau for office the first time she predicted his defeat, but prophesied he would be successful when nominated the second time. She keeps a portrait of Gray haneing in her best room, and she boasts that she has been honored by a visit from him, and that she furnished him with valuable political pointers when he was on the eve of a critical canvass. Her most important prediction of late is te the effect that a war of races is impending.thatmany whites will join the negro demonstration, and that eventually the blacks will be colonized in Mexico,or some other southern co»ntry. During the war she made many enemies by her violent denunciation of the Union cause and there was once a threat to mob her, but she frightened away her assailants by the vehemence of her maledictions.

PAUL, Minn., May 15.—A Pioneer Press special from Winona,Minn. timed 4 a. tn. sayg: The heaviest eonflagaration among the manv losses by fire of the ill- fated Winona the last year started in the fire-room of the Wiuona Mill Company's immense flouring mill about 1 o'clock this morning, and at the present writing the entire plant, including the mill, ele%-ator, and surrounding buildings, is in a mags of flames beyond control. Tbe fire started in tl-e ceiling of the fire-room. An alarm was given, which was quickly followed by another, turned in by the Porter milling company. Tbe companies promptly responded, and did what was thought to be effective work in checking the fire and confining it to the fire-room; but the flames, unnoticed, crept through the ceiling to the main mill, and suddenly darted forth and rapidly spread. Another alarm was turned in, but it was too late to save the magnificent structure. The fire soon included the elevator adjoining. The flames leaped hundreds ot feet in the air, while the heat was almost unbearable. The total loss on the property is estimated at $300,000 and may exceed that; insured for $200,000, mostly in mutual companies. There were about 35,000 bushels of wheat in the elevator and 1,200 barrels of flour in the mill. Thecompanv employed about 100 men. Tbe mill had a capacity of 2.600 barrels, and was about the finest equipped building of tne kind in the world. BO k" BURUI/ARS. FT. WAYXE PKIJfTEKS HAPJPV.

Briee, aged 16, and Percy Ross, aged 17, sons of respectable parents, are under arrest for burglary in the bouse of A. S. Lyon, agent of the Lowell Manufacturing Company, Tuesday night. Both have confessed. There was a third bov in the plot, who ha* not been captured. The boys bought a diamond glass cutter, and each was provided with tlung-shoi, with which, they fay, they were prepared to do murderous work if disturbed. After plundering Mr. and Mrs. Lyon's room and that of their son. they turned on all the gas in the house without lighting it to render the inmates insensible. They obtained a watch and a small quantity of jewelry. Mr. Lv«n was awakened by the escaping gas or the whole family would probably have been asphyxiated. The boys have been absorbing trashy literature, and evidently do not realize the seriousness of their offense. . Balloting for Senator.

Settle By Telegraph to the Journal SKNATK. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 15.—The Senate to-day discussed several bills. When the silver bill was under discussion, Mr. Butler asked Mr. Teller to give his ideas on free coinage of silver and an international monetary arrangement. Mr. Teller said he would do so. Everybody had to admit, he said, that the proposed bill was a. temporary affair. Not one member of the finance committee would claim that it was a permanent thing. The bill was a half way scheme. It afforded no relief whatever except in making a special mar ket for silver in excess of the present government demand of two millions a month. Mr. Hoar inquired whether even without the demonetization of silver in 1873, its price would not have fal- ien. Mr. Teller replied that if the United States bad remained on the double standard and the demoneti- zation of silver in Germany- bad brought down the price of silver, and if the Latin union had restricted silver on account of the effect of German silver on the market, the mint* of the United States would have been opened immediately to the coinage of silver, and every silver owner could have taken his silver to the mint and have it converted into legal tender money, against which there was then, at least, no prejudice anywhere. He quoted Allison, Hume and other historians for the assertion tbat the decline of Rome was to be attributed to the lack of money, and that "the dark ages" had resulted from the same cause Mr. Blair asked Mr. Teller to state in connection with the fall of prices in agricultural products, that there had been no relative increase in quantity. Mr. Teller did make that siatementand added that the trouble was not one of over-production, but of underproduction. Mr. Allison said in the same connection that the price which the farmer obtained fcr his produce now would pay for as much of the things he bought, as the higher price whic.h he obtained formerly. Mr. Teller admitted tbat as to some things, which the farmer bought, it was true: but he added that there were some things which had not fallen and which the farmer had 1 ^ to pay. His taxes had not fallen. In conclusion Mr. Teller said some Senators might be governed by fear of the executive veto but he would follow the dictates of his judgment. He believed if every Senator would do toe same they would have a free coinage act. Mr. Coke next addressed the Senate in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver. He could not support the bill as reported from, the Finance committee. It discriminated against nilver in leaving to the secretary of the treasury the right to determine how much of the silv»r to be purchased should be coined into money; and as the Secretary held that there was already too much silver coined, it was sure that, with discretion in the Sec- retarv not another dollar would be coined. At the clote of Mr. Coke's speech the silver bill went over until to-morrow. The Senate bill to authorne the sale of timber on the Menoininee Indian reservation was taken from the calendar and passed. And then after a brief secret session the Senate, at 4:50, adjourned until tomorrow. HOUSE. ' "WASHINGTON, D. C., May 15.—In the House debate to-day Mr. Blonnt, Ga., criticized the majority of the committee on rales for reporting the resolution. The majority of the House had adopted a code of rules which recognized the right of debate in committee of the whole. It had given the committee power to limit debate. It had provided that 100 should constitute a quorum and yet after all these restraints thrown over the consideration of a bill, in committee, it was proposed to set aside the rule governing the committee. Be'ore the bill had been considered at all the fact had gone forth that four days would be permitted for general debate and eight days for debate under the five minute Aile. The very announcement had repressed debate. Gentlemen on the Democratic side had felt that it was idle to prepare for the discussion. He protested against the resolution as un-Aiuericau and unwise and nnpar- limentary procedure, (applause) Mr. McKinley denied that the resolution bad any purpose to stifle debate. It was intended to concentrate debate on the paragraphs and provisions of the bill. The resoln- tiod was not to deny to the minority freedom of debate, but to deny to it the. right to delay public business by obstructive tactics. Did the gentlemen from Georgia remember that the 44th Congress but one day had been given te the consideration of the tariff bill. In the 45th Congress the Tariff bill had been considered six days. In the 48th Congress it had been considered nine days; when the speaker was in a minority he was clamoring for debate. [Laughter]. Mr. Springer said that in the 48th Congress there were on the Democratic side twelve or fifteen members who voted with the Republicans to strike out the enacting clause. Mr. McKinley—"Yes, and amoBg those twelve, or fifteen or twenty members was the noblest Democrat that ever stood on that side—Samuel J. Randall. [Applause]. Mr. McMillin inquired what (under the resolution) would become of the amendments offered in committee of the whole and not disposed ef at noou Wednesday? Mr. McKinley—"They will fair. 11 Mr. McMillin—"And it is yoarob-*" ject to make them fall" Mr. McKinley demanded the previous question. Mr. Breekinridge, of Kentucky, moved to lay the resolution oa the table. Lost—Yeas 110, nays 148. The previous question was ordered —Yeas 133, nays 102—and the resolution was adopted; yeas 129, nay» 93. Messrs. Morrill, Sawyer and Yoder were appointed eonferes on the Sail- ate dependent pension bill. The House then went int« *fce committee of the whole (Mr. Croe- venor, of Ohio, in the chair) «n the tariff bill. The reading of the bill coasaated the remainder of the day, and at it* conclusion the committee rose, and the House, at 5:15, took a recess until 8 o'clock. The evening session to be for a consideration of private pension bills. WILL BE SENT BACK. WASHINGTON May 15.—As a result of correspondence between the department of Justice and the Treasury department it has been decided to send back to China 21 Chinamen who were smuggled into this country from Mexico, and who are now in'custody at San Diego, Cal. They will be transferred to San Francisco and placed on the first steamer Bailing for China. The House at its evening session (Mr. Perkins of Kansas acting as speaker protein and Mr. Alle» of Michigan as chairman of the COM- mittee of the whole) passed 139 private pension bills, and at 10:80 adjourned.
