Emui on the Make—He was Ready to Form an Alliance / with the Mahdi. By Telegraph to the Journal. LONDON, May 16.—France is showing more activity in Africa than any other power, not excepting Germany. Besides her conquests in the Soudan and the war with-Dahorney, France is taking steps to extend her interests in Madagascar, where the French have had for many years a a precarious foothold. Much discontent exists in that Island pver the laws recently promulgated by the native government in respect to gold mining, which virtually prohibit foreigners from engaging in that Industry and the French are demanding that privileges equal to Those of the natives shall be accorded to the French, whose influence is viewed with jealousy with the reigning Government. The natives are required to sell all the gold they find to the Government at a much lower price than foreigners ate willing to pav. The Prime Minister of Madagascar exercises almost absolute power and is pronounced in hostility to foreign interferences. He is also, however, a devoted Christian. Private letters from Emin Pasha go to show that he has no intention of returning to the equatorial province, and will devote himself to advincing the interests of Bagamoyo and Lake Tanganyika. The Khedive's government is making investigations as to his management of the province, and the evidence taken goes to prove that Emin was not faithful to the Egyptian government but devoted himself to confirming his own power, and was willing to enter into an engagement with the Mahdi. Advices from the China station present a humiliating contrast between the mauuevers of the British fleet in those waters and the recent evolutions of the American squadron in the Mediterranean. A court of inquiry is sitting at Hong Kong to ascertain the causes of the accidents which attended the maneuvers. In one instance a torpedo boat went full speed ahead instead of astern, owing to some blunder in the engine room. The consequence was that another boat was almost sunk in colision. Several other boats and narrow escapes from being driven on rocks. The Alacrity, a dispatch boat, ran ashore in a fog with the Admiral on board, receiving great damage. Altogether the maneuvers were more disastrous than some battles For the second time within the week Avigliano has been the scene of disaster. On Tuesday a quantity of the new explosive balistite exploded at the factory for the manufacture of government arms and munitions, killing fourteen workmen outright and injuring upwards of fifty, several of whom died subsequently. To-day the cartridge factory connected with the works took fire and was entirely destroyed. The building was filled with workmen at the time, and in their efforts to escape many were trampled under foot and killed. Sixteen were taken ont dead and a large number were more or less seriously injured. Emperor William has positively refused to give his sanction to the re-election of Herr Forickenbeck as mayorjat Berlin. BERLIN, May 16.—A shocking accident occurred to-day on the River Oder, near Ratibotn, Silesia. A ferryboat loaded with passengers was crossing the river, when it suddenly capsizsd and thirty six of the people were drowned before assistance could reach them. PRESBYTERIAN ASSEMBI.V. A 3I»derator Chosen From the West —The Matter of Church Vnl- T. By Telegraph to the Journal. SARATOGA, May 16.—In the Presbyterian General Assembly, Rev. Wm. E. Moore, D. D., of Columbus. O., was chosen Moderator. B. L. Agnew, of Philadelphia, Pa.; Martin Kneeland, of Erie, Pa., and Elisha Perkins, of Baltimore, were appointed temporary clerks. The report of William H. Roberts, D. D., from the Committee on Methods of Affecting Changes in the Confession of Faith, was accepted, and Friday was assigned for debate on its adoption. Howard Crosby, D. D., reported on the Church at Home and Abroad, the magazine of the'Presby- terian church. At to-day's session the standing committees were appointed, and then the committee on the liquor traffic in the Congo State reported that they had tried tf) get Congress 7 to use its influence against the traffic, but as the United States was not a partv to the Berlin treafy, no action could be secured at present. It was voted to accept the report and discharge the committee. It was also voted that the action by the Presbyteries ou the question of revision be referred to a special committee. One hundred and thirty-two Presbyteries had favored the proposed revision, sixty-six had opposed it, seven had declined to act and eight had not reported. The afternoon session was opened with prayer by Dr. Joseph B. Smith, of Baltimore. The report of the committee on methods of amendment of the constitution was taken up. After reading the proposed amendment there was a general discussion. Dr. Fran cis Patton of Princeton College said this is the most important question to come before the assembly; vastly more important than the " question of revision, as it deals with the mode in which revision may be had. Two features of the report were objectionable; first in the explicit terms it denies to the assembly all functions of legislation, wiping them out forever. This was revolutionary. Dr. Van Dyke said he liked the report and his mind was not changed by the eloquent address of Dr. Patton, whom he loved but whom he proposed to handle without gloves. He said he knew all about the adopting act before Dr. Patton was born. Judge Robert N. Wilson, of Philadelphia, a member of the committee, defended the report. Eldt-r Junkiu, of Philadelphia, opposed the report. After further remarks the hession was closed without action on the report. IT IS 8EXATOR CA.RI..1SZ.E. Representative Receives Votes. By Telegraph to the Journal. FRANKFORT, K.y., May 16.—Immediately after the Democratic joint legislative caucus had been called to order this evening, Senator Cooper arose and announced the withdrawal of ex-Governor Proctor Knott as a candidate for United States Senator.

Senator Smith thea announced the withdrawal of Representative McCreary. Before the roll call for the second ballot was concluded it was apparent that Mr, Carlisle would receive the nomination, and amid cheering and much confusion the vote was announced: Carlisle, 72: Lindsay, 43. On motion of Senator Thomas, on behalf of Judge Lindsay aud his friends Mr. Carlisle's nomination was made unanimous. The Killing or Mrs. JF. W. Bilberry. Bj Telegraph to the Journal.

Farmers and business men are very much diecouroged over the outlook in Cass connty. National Legislators. The McKinley Bill Receives a Number of Minor Amendments—The Debate in Still Ou. The Silver Bill Monopolizes the Attention of the Senate, ,but Decisive Action is Deferred. By Telegraph to the Journal. SKNATB. AVASHINGTON, D. C., May 10.—Debate on Mr. Sherman's amendment' which is the Windom amendment sent in the United Press dispatches yesterday, was continued to-day. Mr. Plumb offered an amendment to insert the following' "And hereafter no funds available for the payment of the public debt (including such as are kept for the redemption of treasury notes) shall be retained in the Treasurv to the extent of $110,000,000." Mr. Sherman opposed Mr. Plumbs amendment as putting a restraint upon the treasuiy department and preventing it paying government obligations as they became due. As a hundred million had to be reserved for the redemption of treasury notes it would leave only ten million for current business. Mr. Plumb argued that the treasury department should have nothing whatever to do with the currency supply of the country. The secretary seemed to think himself the keystone, the linch-pen of the financial institutions of the country. The holding of money in the treasury (except for the needs of the government itself) which had been before that time in circulation was an economic crime. He compared every secretary of the treasury to a hen setting on a nest of eggs and regarding the subtraction of any of them as a mortal offense. He ("Mr. Pluujb-) wanted'so far as he could by his vote and influence to disassociate the treasury department from ti e business of the people of the United States. He did not want tbe Secretary of the Treasury to be the instrument of speculation in Wall street or elsewhere. As a matter of affecting the secretary' official good name us a matter affecting the interest of the American people,Congress ought to put a limit on the amount of money to be kept on hand in the treasury. Mr. Vest saii that be was in sympathy witk the general purpose of Mr. Plumb's amendment, but he suggested whether ten millions reserved was not too small. Mr. Plumb replied that he did not think that ten millions was th>> limit fixed by his amendment. It simply said that the total amount in the treasury, including such amount as may be retained for the redemption of treasury notes, shall not exceed $110,000,000. Mr Sherman—That is fixed by law at 1100,000,000. The Secretary has no discretion in the matter. Mr. Plumb—I do not think, it is. The law is not imperative. It is permissible only.. The largest amount of the treasury notes presented for redemption any one year was $6,f'00,- 000 and the total amount presented in elevan years was only $28,000,000. The discussion was further continued by Senators Hiscock and Sherman. The Senate after a brief excutive session adjourned. HOUSE. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 16.—On motion of Mr. Dunnell (Minn,) the Senate bill was passed authorizing the registration of census mail matter. The House then went into coinniit- mittee of tne whole (Mr. Grosvenor in the chair) on the tariff bill. A number of verbal amendments were, on motion of Mr. McKinley, made to the bill. Mr. McKinley offered an amendment specifically including glass chimneys in the clause relative to thin-blown glass at a dainty 1 cent a dozen and 40 per cent, ad valorem. A debate arose in which Mr. Raines of New York, Mansur, of Missouri, and Mr. Springer of Illinois, participated. Mr. Henderson, of Iowa, offered us a substitute for the pending amendment a provision that lamp chimneys should continue to pay the present duty of 45 per cent. He did not want to break down the domestic industry, but he would not vote for an increase of the duty. Mr. Rogers, of Arkansas, said that it was the intention apparently to prolong debate to give the Pittgburg time to get to Washington. Mr. Struble, of Iowa, spoke of Mr. Blard as a demagogue. Representing an agricultural district he (Strubel) was willing to give the manufacturer reasonable protection, because he knew that the pros- peritv of the manufacturer, within reasonable grounds meant prosperity for the whole country (applause) Mr. Lafollette (of Wis.) contended that the thin blow glass industry required a large degree of protection. Mr. Lodge of Mass, said that the result of the present duty had been to close up the two largest glass factories in Mass. He was'aware that Pittsburg had superior advantage in. the shape of natural gas. with the high class mechanical skill of New- England there was no reason why the Massachusetts factories should not have continued business and they would have continued business but for undue foreign competition.* Mr. Greenhalge (Masc.) said that he did not see the necessity of increasing the duty on flax tow; he did not see the necessity of increasing the duty on third-class wools; be was opposed to putting lime on the dutiable list; but he supposed that gentlemen were to consider these matters in a spirit of liberal compromise_ and ia a spirit of mutual concession. A good deal was said about farm mortgages and strikes. Mortgages were o'd things. Adam would have mortgaged his farm of Eden if he had had anybody to mortgage it to. Wbetb p C the Democratic party wag there or not. the farm had finally gone to the devil (laughter). As to strikes: to-day all Europe was shaking under the tread of thousands and hundreds of thousands of workingmen who celebrated their Mayday by demanding more rights and priveleges. Gentlemen on the other side talked eloquently about free coal, iron and salt. The Republicans sind that there were other articles of prime necessity— free tea, free coffee, and free sugar. Mr. Coleman, of Louisiana—"There is one on this side who does not Bay free sugar." (Laughter.) Mr. Greenhalge—"That may be. and that is one of the gentlemen 1 wish to appeal to it in this spirit of compromise and mutual concession. Mr. Mills, (Texas), was glad to hear his friend (Mr. McKinley) revise his speech of two years ago" in which he characterized tbe then pending bill as a free trade measure. Tbe high duty on the glassware schedule of that bill did not meet his (Mr. Mill's) views. He had been forced to accept them. His friend was placed in the same position in regard to his bill. He (Mr. McKinley) had put a protection of hides in his bill and yet he bad been compelled to take a free trade position and put hides on tbe free list. Mr. McKinley's amendment was adopted. Mr. McKiuley then offered a series of amendments (many of them unimportant) which were all adopted. The duty on sugar of milk: iras reduced from ten to eight cents a pound. A rebate was provided of duties on imported salt used in cur- np meat for exportation. The duty on yarn made of jute was increased from 30 to 35 per cent advalorem. Binding twine composed of uianilla, jute or sisal gra<=s was taken from the clause imposing a duty of 1J cents a pound and transferred to the lj clause. The clause relative to carpets was amended so as to provide that carpets made of jute or other vegetable material shall pay six cents per square yard, ond mats, rugs and screens 8 cents. The duty on burlaps (not exceeding siity inches in width) was changed from 1J to 1 j cents per pound. The dutv on bags for grain made of burlaps" was fixed at 2 cents a pound. Russian camels hair was brought under the head of wools of class 3. The duty of 32 per cent, ad valorem was pla'ced on wools of th«> third class and on Russian camels hair of the third class, the value of which shall be 13 cents or less a pound, including charges. The duty of 50 per cent, is imposed on wools of the third class exceeding in value 13 cents a pound. The committee arose and the House took a recess until 8 o'clock, the evening session to be for the consideration of private pension bille. The House at the evening session passed a number of private pension bills and adjourned. > 1>KAB The Venerable Illinois Jurist Passes Peacefully Away. By Telegraph tcf the Journal. CHICAGO, 111., May 1C.—The sad and startling intelligence of the death, at his Wheaton home, of Judge Thomas Druminond, ex-judge of the United States Circuit court, was received in the city this morning.
