A Steamship Collision Results in tUe Sinking of one Vessel and the Serious Damage of Another— No Iioss of Life. A Convention of Railroad Em- ployes to Secure Uniform Wages. By Telegraph to the Journal. MINNEAPOLIS, May 19.—A special to the Tribune from Sault Ste Marie, Mich., says: A collision occurred this morning at 11 o'clock in the upper end of Mud Lake, near the Can Buoy, resulting in the sinking of the steamer Ohio and beaching of the Sitieria. The Siberia and steamer Samuel Mather both bound down were abreast and reported as racing when they met the Ohio towing the schooner Thomas P. Sheldon bound up, laden with coal for West Superior. The Siberia gave one blast ot her -whistle, which was answered by the Ohio. The Mather being slightly ahead of the Siberia, and less than one hundred feet from her, the suction of her wheel caused the Siberia to sheer, striking the Ohio near the fore rigging and sinking her in six minutes, in American waters. The Siberia immediately backed out aud made for the Canadian shore, where she now lies. Her stem is badly damaged and the timbers strained. The Ohio lies in six fathoms, with the top of her Texas just visible above the water in the middle of the channel, but will be no obstruc- ion to navigation as the channel is wide at this point. Capt. Jforse thinks that with the assistance of two pumps and a lighter the Siberia can be released. The crews of both boats were brought to this point on the steamer Majestic. The Siberia is owned by Rhodes and others of Cleveland, aud is valued at ninety- five thousand dollars'. The Ohio is the property of T. P. Mason, of East Sagiuaw and is valued at $08,000. UMPJOOYEH. They .naet in Philadelphia and Comparisons tit l*ay. By Telegraph to the Journal. PHILADELPHIA, Pa., May 19—A convention of representatives from the different organizations of railroad employes of all roads centering fn Philadelphia was held here last night. There were delegates present representing in all over 13,000 railroaders. The object of the con vention was to take action in endeavoring to stcure a reasonable adjustment of grievances, which, it is claimed, the men have against the different companies bv which they are employed. When the grievances of the em- ployes of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company were made known the employes of the other-roads decided to sink their own grievances until those of the Baltimore & Ohio men had been corrected. The bill of grievances presented to the meeting by the Baltimore & Ohio men embodied a comparison of the wages re ceived b" them with the rates paid to the employes of the Pennsylvania Railroad. The list presented stated that on through trains to Washington on the Baltimore & Ohio the conductors on Fourth Division receive $4.12 per round trip, the baggage masters $2.25, and thebrakemen $1 per round trip, while on the Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore the con ductors are paid $6 per round trip, the baggagemen $3,75 and the brakemen $3. It was shown that the wage." paid on the other divisions of the B. &O. were.also lower than those paid by other companies. The convention did not take any action on the grievances but adjourned to consider them, and take action at a subsequent rnpeting. Stanley Relic By Cable to the Journal. liOHDQN, May 19.—Stanley is now suffering from the annoyance that all men of prominence have to submit to in the matter of relic hunters aud curiosity seekers. There is a brisk competition among managers of exhibitions and museums in the effort to gain possessions of some of the effects belonging to the African expedition. Stanlev has received not less than 49 applications from wax works proprietors, etc., for the old suit ^n which he was clothed when first reached by Europeans. Indeed some enterprising managers, among them a New Yorker, even sent agents to Zanzibar. Their efforts have all been in vain however, as the explorer denotes whatever he would spare to the Stanley exhibition under his patronage in London. Stanley's officers and companions have been subjected to similar solicitations, though of courie in les- ier degree. WIRT DEXTER'S I>RATH.

CHICAGO, May 19.— Scores of sorrowing friends and many of the leading lawyers of the city and state called at the residence of the late Wirt Dexter to-day to look at the face of the once brilliant man who was stricken down so suddenly Saturday night. Mr. Dexter died of heart trouble, of the existence of which ueither himself, family, uor friends had any knowledge.

He administered simple remedies, aud Mr. Dexter was taken Home in a carriage. He grew worse, however, and at S:3U o'clock, two hours after he was stricken down, Mr. Dextrr, seated in an arm-chair, breathed his last. The cause of death was angina rectoris, resulting from changes in the arteries of the heart. A Sew Sluecer. Bf Telegraph to the Journal.

When time was called, however, he exhibited renewed vitality and gave the colored man a succesbion of ueck aud bod. blows although he himself went to the floor three times.

WASHINGTON NEWS, Senator JDolph Talks to the Senate Concerning: the Silver Bill Ami Claims Biinetalism Impossible "Without International Agreement. Representatives Wilson ana Bayiie rto the Amende Honorable And the House Resumes the Discussion of the Tariff Bill. By Telegraph to the Journal. SENATE. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 19.—The Senate resumed consideration of the Silver bill and Mr. Dolph spoke at great length. He said that International bi-metalism was desirable but that free coinage of silver in the United States '-without an international agreement as to the ratio of coinage between silver and gold would result in gold being either sent abroad to pay for silver which would flow here from all the world or being hoarded and withdrawn from circulation. He considered the plan of the Secretary of the treasury to be less objectionable than any other proposed. There was no middle ground for the United States; it had either to remain with the coutries that had a gold standard or join with those that had a silver standard. He argued against the free coinage of silver as something that would stop the coinage of cold; because no man, he said, would take to the mint to be coined metal that was worth 100 cents on the dollar if they could do as well with metal I hat was worth only eighty-two cents on the dollar. Mr. Teller asked him where silver bullion would be got at such a low price. Mr. Dolph replied that if legislation was to auvance the price of silver permanently, silver would flow in from all over the world. What he had said in regard to the free coinage of silver did not, of course, apply to free coinage under an international agreement establishing a ratio between gold and silver. At the close of Mr.Dolph's speech, Mr. Teller criticized some points of it. He denied that the proportion which cauie from the finance coinmir.tee meant silver at all. On the contrary he asserted that it meant a single gold standard. Mr. Aldrich asked Mr. Teller whether he proposed in the issue of silver money ' to dislocate the parity of gold and silver. Mr. Teller replied that the senator from Rhode Island knewn that he did not want a silver basis. He wanted the double standard. He wanted to put gold and silver on a parity and in order to that gold had to be brought down from the point to which it had been appreciated by various legisla- tions. Mr. Mitchell expressed his disstnt from the view expressed by his colleague, Mr. Dolph. He said be believed the people of this state wanted free coinage of silver. HOUSB. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 19.- The House went into committee of the whole upon reassembing to-day with Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, in the chair, on the Tariff bill. After thi> Chairman had given a sharp admonition to the spectators in the gallery that they must preserve order.Mr. Wilson of Iowa, took the floor on a question of personal privilege. He expressed his gratification that the lapse of time since the unhappy episode of Saturday permitted him to make a thoroughly- deliberate and dispassionate statement. As the chairman of the committee had admitted a certain letter on the ground that a private citizen, when assailed in this hall, had a right to be heard in his own defence; aad, as that was undoubtedly a correct theory, he would endeavor to give a plain history of the whole transaction. He then presented the facts relating to Mr. Campbell's appearance before the Ways and Means Committee, his statement that Messrs. Bynum and Wilson had said that $15 a "month was good wages for work- inguien, the refutation of that statement, the reiteration of it in the form of an affidavit, and the published denial of the troth of the affidavit. In conclusion ho said that in view of the courteous relations which had heretofore existed between the gentlemen from Pennsylvania (Mr^ Bayne) and himself, he would give that gentleman an opportunity to sav whether he personally indorsed the language of Campbell as refer- ing to him (Mr. Wilson). Mr. Bayne thereupon arose, and in a frank and manly way stated that when he presented the letter he knew nothing about the affidavits which he felt sure grew oat of a misunderstanding between Mr, Campbell and the gentlemen from Indiana and Weft Virginia (Mr. Bynum and Mr. Wilson). No one could regret more than he did that this had taken place. Mr Wilson said that after this statement he did not feel that it was necessary for him to pursue this matter any further. Both Mr. Wilson and Mr. Bayne were calm and dispassionate in their language and manner, and the members of the House ware pleased that the scenes of Saturday were not reenacted. The committee then proceeded to the consideration of the bill, the pending amendment being that offered by Mr. Funston. of Kansas, striking from the metal schedule the proviso that silver ore and all other ores containing lead shall pay a duty of He per pound on the lead contained therein, .according to gain- pie and assay at the port of entry. Mr. Prank (Mo.) regretted that the amendment had emanated from the Republican side of the House, and be earnestly opposed it. Mr. Grain of Texa?, said that the bill could not be defended from a protective standpoint, because it was intended to protect an American industry against foreign competition. Mr. Parkins of Kansas, protested against the amendment as putting the American miner in competition with the Mexican workingman. Mr. Clunie of Cal.. opposed the amendment. The following amendments were agreed to on motion of Mr. McKinley; providing that the internal taxes on smoking and manufactured tobacco and on snuff shall be four cents a pound after the Igt of October, 1890, or within sixty days from the approval of this act (instead of 1st of January, 1891, as proposed by the bill.) Making an indefinite appropriation for the payment of drawbacks: reducing the bond of cigar manufacturers from liiOO to $100; limiting to a minimum of §5 the amount of drawbacks upon. tobacco in original packages when the law takes effect. After gome further debate the house adjourned. SUPBEJIH COURT DECISIONS. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 19.—A decision was rendered to-flay in the contest between the States of Indiana and Kentucky over the ownership and jurisdiction of Green River Island, in the Ohio river embracing 2,000 acres. The court decided in favor of the claim of the State of Kentucky, and gives the island to that State. In the suit of the church of latter Day Saints, against the United States which cainehere on an appeal from the decision of the Supreme court of Utah in favor of the United States, the court affirming the judgment. The case grows out ot the passage of the Edmund's anti- polygamy law, when the United States, under the terms of this act, began proceedings to confiscate about $750,000 worth o£ property belonging to_ the church, the Mormons immediately entered suit to have the Edmund's law declared unconstitutional. On the part of the United States it was contended that Congress had authority to repeal all territorial enactments; that the act incorporating the church was invalid, as an attempt to establish a law contrary to the provisions of the constitution, and that, moreover, the charter should be annulled for abuse of the granted rights. An when the church corporation was dissolved there was no one to whom to turn over the property, it wa* properly escheated to the United States. YESTERDAY'S BASE BALI/. By Telegraph to the Journal.
