BISSELLGETSA LETTER Accused of Condemning: a £>'' He Had Not Read. OABLISLE GAVE HIS TESTIMONY. Denies Explicitly All But One of (lie Chat-Res Mnde by Eilwntds— Senators Uarrta and Mills Have Jfo Knowledge nf Undue Influence llelngVued by tile Sugar Trust— lumber on the free List, WASHINGTON, June 1.->A, L. Randall, chairman of the International Typographical union committee on government ownership of the telegraph, has written a letter to Postmaster General Bissol, accusing him of never having read the postal telegraph bill on which he recently reported adversely to Chairman Wise of the house committee on commerce. Mr. Randall says Mr. Bisael evidently took it for granted the bill referred to him was the Wanamaker bill of the 51flt congress. He then calls attention to government ownership of telegraphs in other countries, and asks: "Are not the people of this country as capable of conducting a government telegraph system as those' of the European nations?" This is followed up with this threat: "The International Typographical union has inaugurated this movement; it will do its utmost to defeat any man found Working and voting against the great reform, regardless of party affiliations. We have had several hearings, but at the present writing we are aware that we have been 'sidetracked.' If we do not get back on the main track soon we know by Whose authority wo are being held. Itjnfy be a scheme to hold us on this siding until after the November elections, but if we are not soon put on, the main line, so we can see who our friends are, we will at once commence the campai,,^ ,'n the districts of members of the committee who are responsible for onr<^lay and will use all honorable means to bring about their defeat this fall, no matter which ' party they belong to." _ CARLISLE GAVE HIS TESTIMONY. Denies Explicitly All But One of the Charges Made by Edward*. WASHINGTON, June 1. — The sugar bribery investigation committee examinsd Senators Harris and Mills and also took the testimony of Secretary Carlisle, who denied explicitly all the charges made in Mr. Edwards' letter, except one. This one was, that while conferring with' the committee he (Carlisle), on one occasion and at the suggestion of the members of the committee and using their figures, put a sugar schedule into shape, as ho did other paragraphs in their bill. The examination of Senators Harris, and Mills completed the inquiry among the members of the fin mice committee and the senators who assisted in the preparation of the bill. Both senators denied . any knowledge of the operations of the .sugar trust in connection with legislation and also denied that Carlisle had demanded protection for sugar. f ": Senator Mills was.asked if it was true, • as had been reported, that Carlisle had given Havemeyer, of the sugar trust, a letter of introduction to 'himself. He said this was a fact, but he had declined to receive the letter. Vice President Stevenson has signed the certification of Shriver and Edwards to the district attorney. This is the formal order made under the law of 1857, under which it is purposed to try to puuisjj Edwards and Shriver for withholding toames of persons giving them information. _ LUMBER ON THE FREE LIST. Vwt Surprlned the Itepublloni by Accepting Allen'i Amendment. WASHINGTON, June I.— The senate, Senator Mills alone refusing to vote, unanimously passed a resolution declaring that the United States will not interfere with the affairs of the Hawaiian Islands, and that the United States will regard interference withUhe affairs of the islands by any foreign power as an unfriendly act. The tariff bill was taken up. Several amendments offered to the lumber paragraphs, looking to a duty on rough lumber, were voted down by a strict party vote. Senator Allen moved to strike out paragraph 17H, as follows: "Lumber of any sort, planed or finished, each side so planed or > finished, 50 cento per 1,000 feet, board measure; and if planed on one aide and tongued and grooved, $1 per 1,000; and if planed on two sides and tongued and grooved, f 1.50 per 1,000, and on estimating board measure under tola 8 ihedule no deduction shall be made on account of planing, grooving or tonguing." Senator VeeUurprUed the Republicans when he announced that the amendment would b» accepted, by the Democratic aide. As the amendment* to the lumber schedule was being voted on without debate, under an agreement made on Wodneaday, the vote wa§ immediately taken and it was agreed to— 8!* to 84— a •trlct party vote, Metwrn. Puffer and Allen (Pops.) voting for it, This will have the effect of putting all lumber on thefrwliat. •lorry ttu>p«ou WASHINGTON, June 1.— Representative Jerry Siiupsou left Washington for Berkeley Springs, Va., accompanied by Representative Pence.

KANSAS CITY, June 1.—There has been fight in the woman suffragists' camp for quite awhile, but it has just cropped nit, The personages involved are none other than Helen M. Qouger and Susan B. Anthony. The former has written a caustic letter to The Republic, a weekly paper published at Argentine, Kan., in which she gives the venerable apostle of Women's rights a severe lashing. Mrs. Laura M, St. John of Kansas also comes in for her share of the drubbing. One passage of the letter, referring to Miss Anthony, says: "She has never succeeded in the adoption of a single suffrage law; she has met crushing defeat in every amendment to the state constitution which she has championed. Her present unwise leadership in Kansas will lead to Bore defeat unless the people of the state take matters into their own hands." In another place in the letter she states her idea of the fate of the suffrage proposition with the campaign under the present leaders: "Either cause Miss Anthony and Mrs. St. John to remove this bdycot on moral issues or let not a dollar or an honest effort, to make sure defeat more humiliating than otherwise, because manipulated by them under the whip of political and moral cowardice of the Republican party." In spite of this attack the suffragist leaders are carrying on the campaign with a vim. Extensive Colonization In Mexico.

CRIPPLK CREEK, Colo., June 1. — The War clouds that hover over Bull Hill and Battle mountain look very threatening. A rumor has reached the camp that the deputies are preparing to advance toward Bull Hill and the miners are preparing to give them a warm reception. There is no truth in the minor that the miners have a lot of deputies prisoners. The strikers are making prisoners of men whom they consider dangerous to their safety, and, it is stated, 40 persons are thus held in custody. The strikers surrounded the Summit mine Thursday, captured three nonunion miners and destroyed the 'phone with bullets. Mrs. W. D. Snell, wife of one of the miners employed in the Strong, has been driven from the camp. The strikers threatening to take her life and destroy her property if she remained. Her husband, who had incurred the enmity of the mob, suddenly disappeared several days ago and she believes he has been murdered. She was not permitted to look for him before' leaving for Colorado Springs. Entirely Beyond Arbitration. The authorities have notified the mine owners who have properties at Cripple Creek that the trouble in that district has gone entirely beyond the question of wages or of arbitration of wages. It is now, they state, entirely one of putting down the lawlessness and insurrection existing in the district and this they propose to make every* effort to do. For this purpose a special session of the grand jury has been called and the Cripple Creek cases will at once be taken up. People who live and do business in Cripple Creek are coming to Colorado Springs in large numbers, as they state they no .longer dare remain at their homes. The majority have been ordered to leave by the strikers. New Complications Threatened. The storm has stopped 1 traffic leading to this region and until trains begin running again there is no possibility of the deputies being increased in force. New complications are threatened, as representatives of the railway conductors, engineers and firemen have been in consultation with the strikers at Altman. It is thought the trainmen may refuse to run trains carrying, arms, ammunition and reinforcements to the old deputies. Such a stop would immeasurably strengthen the strikers, as the work of massing deputies would be- slow and difficult. Governor Waite and party are weather bound near McCourt camp, and have not been able to reach Florence. The governor is greatly disappointed, as he fears the deputies will make an advance. The miners' have great faith in Governor Waite being able to adjust the matters with the mine owners so that work can start up at all idle properties by the first of the week at the latest. They are greatly put out that his excellency has been delayed in his journey to Colorado Springs by washouts. General Johnson, who commands the strike force, served with Captain Zalinski in Ihe United States army, and, it Is said, his knowledge of the principles of Zalinski dynamite guns has enabled him to construct a dangerous weapon, which will be used against the deputies. It can throw dynamite several hundred feet. Chicago Offer* to Furnlih Deputies, DENVER, June 1.— The sheriff sent 150 more deputies to Cripple Creek Thursday. They were all armed with Winchesters, carried blankets and equipped for hard service. They will stop at Colorado Springs until the road into the camp has been repaired. Chicago has offered 1,000 men at fg a day, but the the proposition has not been accepted by Sheriff Bowers of Colorado Springs. CltlMiu to Protect Miner*. LBAVBNWORTH, Kan., June 1.— Business men of Leavenworth, fully 000 strong, made a bold move in a big mats meeting held here. They resolved unanimously to give the miners of this city who desire to continue work protection in the fullest sense of the word, and, if necessary, to resort to physical force for an accomplishment of this end.

MAUD mJBEL WAS MURDERED. nndl.V fjecompnued 1'i'ly of the Sotith Oriiatm Young Lady Found In Ontahat OMAHAj June 1. — A horrible sequel to the disappearance of Miss Maud Rtibel from her homo in South Omaha last Saturday night was furnished Thursday afternoon. Her badly decomposed body was found by Officer Heelan in a rear second story room of a brick building, 800 South Tenth street. An autopsy seems to have established that the girl Wautmrdered, and Dr. Brown, who confesses that he had been criminally intimate with her, and in whose company she is supposed to have been after leaving home, was arrested. The officer was led to investigate the premises by the stench noticed both by passengers over the Tenth street viaduct and by residents in the vicinity. The room in which the body was found is a small one, and contained no furniture whatever. The body was lying on its back, with the head against the wall. The general appearance of the body was such as to indicate that the girl, when death came, was in terrible convulsions. The face was as black as a negroe's from mortification, and the whole body was discolored, though not to the same degree by the same cause. The remains were removed to the morgue. It was at once surmised from the dress that the body was that of Maud Bubel, although it was impossible from the features to identify it by the description that had been given. Mr. W. A. Sloan from South Omaha, a cousin of Miss Bubel, took the clothes to Mrs. Bubel, and when she saw them she became almost insane. At once she said they belonged to her daughter. Mr. Bubel reiterated the .statement of his wife. Later the parents came up to Omaha and visited the morgue, but they yielded to importunity of the coroner not to view the body on account of its ghastly condition. Mrs. Bubel . was so crazed that she could not speak. Crete Nnrterlei mortgaged. ' CRETE, Neb., June 1. — E. F.

PARIS, June 1, — On the anniversary of the death of Joan of Arc, deputations from several Masonic lodges placed a large floral wreath upon the statue of the Maid of Orleans in the Rue des Pyramids. The wreath was inscribed "To Joan of Arc— abandoned by Royalty. Burned by the Church," The inscription caused a riot. The wording wua seen by a number of- young Oath oliue, who gathered in a body and made a diiHh for the statue.

[From the Iowa Homestead.] The Farmers' .Mutual Hail ItmiMneo Association of Iowa, which we recommended to the farmers oueyear ago,has jus* completed its year's business, and the results are a surprise to even its friends. No mutual association ever sprang into favor among the farmers with such surprising rapidity BS has this young organiza tion. Farmers have time and again organized fot some specific purpose, and, without exception, good has grown out ot their efforts. But iu no way Imve they saved themselves more mom v ot aLity- ance than by the organization >•! the varl ous mutnals over the state to insui-b themselves against loss by lire, lightning tornado, cyclone or ball. Almost every county In the state has its home mutual, and the cyclone association has insurance iu all portions, but until oue year ago there was no attempt made by the farmers themselves to protect their crops against the most destructive of all storms—the hall. On tho 4th day of last March some of the lending farmers and mutual insurance- men met in Des Moines aud organized » Mutual Hail Insurance association and issued their first policy on May 17th. On July the 6th they had over 81,000,000 at risk and suffered loss to the amountof over 85,000. During the year §1,300,000 was written in risk, and 87,000 was paid in losses. The assessment made was less than 3 cents per acre, and was paid promptly and gladly by the members. The association expects to write $5,000,000 in risks this season and to do business in nearly every county in Iowa. The annual meeting of the members wns held in the parlors of the Aborn house, this city, on the 10th inst., and the same officers were reelected, thus endorsing the past season's work. Over 2,600 farmers last? year protected themselves in this way and letters oC praise and commendation have flowed in upon the secretary, giving him much encouragement and satisfaction. Over twenty destructive hail storms visited Iowa the past season, nml some ol them in places where the. people said there- had not been any hail In thirty years. • Like the tornado, the hail storms are no respecters of persons, and there is no part of Iowa but may be visited any year by them. In one county in centrallowaa single hail storm last year destroyed over 820,000 worth ot crops, and in Lee county, in the very south east corner of the state, there was heavy loss, while at the same time in Lyou county, the most northwest county, another storm, just as destructive, mowed down the ripening grain. Decatur county, on the snutlr, had a heavy hail storm, as did- also Emmet county, on the north. So thus- it may be easily understood that there is dapger of bail in any part.
