•THEY WANT FREE COAL ^ Choice ot Mouse Conferees^ Mot Granted by Senators. MICE OFFERS A PROPOSITION flint the House Be Given Fro« Bttgnr If tho Remainder of Sennt* Amendments Aro Allowed to Stand WHgon 8i»yn the I'rcnldcnt Is Not Trying ! to Influence Confereeg, I WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.—The Democratic tavi IS 1 conference had expected to be able to announce an agreement Thursday. Instead of reaching any definite conclusion, the day closed with the bill In quite as an uncertain a state as evei before in its history and with- the situation in no wise improved and with th« 'feeling between the friends of the senata and house bills intensified instead of allayed and with no one prepared to say what the outcome would be or when the end would be reached. It was apparent •at the very beginning of the conference that those who had concluded at tho adjournment of Wednesday's session thai i an agreement would be arrived at Thursday had not taken sufficiently into account tho possibility of a misunderstanding or a change of mind. This discovery was made when the senate conferee* f prepared to go on with the bill upon the basis of a duty of 4.0 lents per ton ot • coal and free iron ore, whereupon the house conferees announced their willingness to assent to this arrangement and •stated they would insist upon a reversal of these terms, with coal free and iron ore dutiable if either was to be, as they understood they were to have a choice between the two. Komnrkn Mot Altogether Polite. • The avowal of this position produced Immediate confusion and led to an exchange of remarks which were not altogether polite. The senate conferees thereupon decided to report the state of affairs to the conservative senators and when the conferees adjourned called Senators Gorman, Brice, Smith and Murphy into consultation. The whole situation was outlined to them. They were not only made acquainted with the demaud of the house conferees for free coal but •were also given to understand other material concessions would be expected by the house conferees ulouii the entire line of the bill, including woolens, cottons, metals, glass and earthenware. They -decided upon an emphatic negative in reply to these proposals, saying if tha body of the bill was not preserved virtually aa it passed the senate, the report of the •conference whou made would not be accepted by the senate. • llrlco OflTnra a Proposition. • Senator Brice proposed an innovation 'In the shape of a proposition that the house conferees bo given an opportunity to secure free sugar. His idea in detail was that the senate conferees should volunteer to recede entirely from tlv senate schedule, leaving both raw JHK! rclined sugar on the free list, as providt-.l in the house bill, and that the senate bill should be otherwise accepted virtually in its present shape with both coal and iron on the dutiable list, at tho rate of 40 cents per ton. In urging this upon the con- ierees, he s,%l it would necessarily produce one of three results. If it should • be declined by tho house conferees it would place the responsibility for the eugar duty upon them; if it should be accepted and the senate should on this account refuso to adopt the committee report, ih'i house conferees would still bear the odium for insisting upon amending tho sonata bill. "If, thirdly," he said, "they would accept; if a report -should bo made upon these linos, and if the report should be • accepted by both houses and should become u law, wo should all be happy." Conferee* Adopted the Suirgont Ion, The conferees adopted the suggestion • and presented the proposition to the afternoon session of tho conference. It is understood the proposition created some surprise on tho part of tho house members, who at first evinced a disposition to accept it, but after considerable dituuis- • sion of the merits of this feature of the proposition and of tho features involving the acceptance of the other senate amendments, declined to vouchsafe an answer without further consideration. ' The question was, therefore, undisposed • of when the conference adjourned for ' the day. The Republican senators were also in consultation with tho senatorial tariff conferees during the day and it is understood have given notice that if there is material change, in tho more im\ portant schedules relating to manufactured articles they will resist tho im- tnediate'dlBpOBitlon of the committee's report when wade and have stated that in that event wore tariff oratory may be rapeoted. HOMW fide ot th« Situation. The bouse conferees have their side of •Itutttion to toll. Chairman Wilson au- thoriited the statement at the close of (he conference that the reports current through tho day to the effect President ' Cleveland had interfered with the ill- formal agreement reached Wednesday night wore wholly unwarranted and un- tnu>, Mr. Wilson said tho executive was carefully refraining from exerting any Influence on the conferees and was leaving the members to shape their coarsen at they saw (It. As to the misunderstandings through* out tho day, the houtu mou understood when the conference adjourned the night before the senators had conceded that either iron oro or ooal was to go ou tho free list, the other remaining on the dutiable list. While the bouse men had givou no definite anuouuceiiitmt of their ohoive between the two Horns it was generally understood thoy would prefer to Imvu Iron aro on the free list. Whim, however, they entered tlio coufomuoo tlioy had conoludod among tuwutwlvee that it would bo prefuraUlu to have ooal on tho froo list, leaving iron oro dutiable at 4U oouu u ton, eHiiti couclualuu wan dell- uitely ttuuouuuad to thu suuutors, but (ho uwu ww» eurm'ivud to Hud tUu willingness to concede them the chcrtc* Was somewhat abated. What had caused the change was not made clear, but in discussing it the house conferees •aid With no little feeling that it was clearly due to the influence of those in- terasted i« the sugar schedule, Bfnst Stop At Government WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.— The president has approved the net recently passed by congress requiring railroads in the territories running over right of way granted by tho government to establish stations at all townsites established by the interior department. This law grew out ol the contest between the Bock Island road and people livirig in towns in Oklahoma located by tho government, th« railroad refusing to stop at these towns as it had townsites at other points. It it believed this law will end the trouble. DlBHftree on Appropriation*, WASHINGTON, Aug. 30,— The conferees on the sundry civil bill will report a disagreement. On nearly all the different Items agreements were reached, but on several points the house will have to decide before the conferees will feel satisfied to recede. The main points of difference are the appropriation for the purchase of the Mtthon site for a government printing office, the appropriation for public buildings in Washington, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming and foi the survey of arid lands. Favornhle Report on OleotnnrirnHnft. WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.—Representative Foreman, from the committee on agriculture, made a favorable report on the bill to make oleomargarine and all other imitation dairy products subject to the laws of the state or territory into which they are transported. It is claimed that the "original package" decision of the supreme court has permitted unscrupulous dealers to pack oleomargarine in original packages and thus protect it from the restrictions of the various state laws. More Land For Settler*. WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.—The Kickapoo Indian reservation in Kansas will be thrown open to settlement within six weeks, if the expectations of the interior department officials are realized. The adjustment of allotments has been completed and'Allotting Agent Moses Neal has submitted his report to the bureau of Indian affairs. To Include llulldlng Stone.

Two men and a boy left thrf Cudahy plant about 6 o'clock nnd started for their homes. A gang of strikers saw them coining and when the men reached Q street the gang began to close in on them. Drawing their revolvers thoy pointed them directly at the head mcu. "You come another step nearer to me and I'll blow your head off," said one of the men. His partner also leveled a re- uolver in the same direction and the strikers stopped and called for a policeman. The officers told the crowd to disperse, which they did. A fireman and engineer at Cudahy's, who work at night, were assaulted on their way from work. Neither of them were hurt. A particularly exasperating feature of the disturbance is that laborers and others who hove no connection with the packing houses are made to suffer from violence. BURNED TO DEATH IN A WRECK.

PRESIDENT REINHART'S REPLY tie Charges Gro*« Krror» tn Expert Lit* tle> Stntcment. NEW YORK, Aug. 10. — The general reorganization committee of the Atchison Railroad company met Thursday and received President Reinhart's rsjJy to Expert Little's statement that the income account of the Atchison for four years, ending June HO, Iti94, had been overstated to the amount of over $7,000,000. Mr. Little's report, as presented to the reorganization committee, charges that the income account ot the Atchison road for the four years ending June 1. 1W4, shows an over estimate of $"i,2Hf>,020, and he gives figures for the different years on the basis of his calculations which foot up that amount. President "Reinhart's letter to the committee replying to Expert Little's report charges gross errors in Little's statement, asserts that Little has totally ignored $1,100,000 earnings of the St. Louis and San Francisco road, which is part of the Atchison system, and all of the stock of which is owned by tho Atchison system; that Little refuses to include a balance 1 of $437,!)39 (United States currency) sub- i oidy due from the Mexican government*! to the Sonora railway, an Atchison aux-' iliary. , An item of $450,000 covering earnings on freight in transit on through billing for the last week of each month is ignored. A sum of $a,832,OUO, interest earned from Jan. 1 , 1>!)0, to Dec. 28, 1893, on advances by Atchison and San' Francisco companies to the Atlantic and i Pacific railroad, is ignored, also $o(iO,OOU ! profit on the Atchison's investment in] terminal property. ' The committee after the reading ot i President Reinhart's report adopted a | resolution referring the Little and Rein- ; hart statements to a committee com- ' posed of R. S. Hayes, chairman of tha general reorganization committee; Robert Fleming of the London committee and Mr. Laden, representing Hope & Co. of Amsterdam, with instructions to report to the full committee what further action should be taken in the premises.
