McDonald. Pa., Jnne 13 A mass
meeting of 9.000 miners, representing
the mines in this vicinity, including
thosoof W. F Read, whs held here to
day. The object of the meeting was to
decide whether the miners should abide
by the terms of the Columbus compro
mise. As no official notice of tho com
promise agreement had yot been re
ceived from President McDrido, it was
decided to wait on their information
before taking any action.
The feeling Is strong against accept
ing the CO rent rale. Whether the
miners will roturn to work on tho re
ceipt of McBrlde'l circular is hard to
say. It is reported that President Mc

1 lie men to stay just as they are, to
obey the law and to offer no violence to
the guard; if they do this they will be
victorious In the struggle.

NgW York, Juno 13.
THE trial of Erastus Wiman,
charged with forgery in the flee
ond degree, was resumed this
momtng. Following evidence of
Dr. Donglaia and others Mr. Wellman
caused a sensation by producing a
letter whinh contained a ao-oalled con
fession of Mr. Wiman. Handing the
document to Mr. Douglass, who was on
the witness stand, he asked Mr. Doug
lass if he had ever seen it. Mr. Doug
lass said he had seen it on Monday,
Feb, 20, 1S03. at Mr Dun's house, and
that it was the handwriting of Mr,
Wiman. Mr. Wellmai then offered it
in evidence. It was the alleged letter
from Mr. Wiman to Mr. Dun, confess
ing his wrong doing and imploring
clemency. B lore the question of its
admissibility was passed upon tho
letter wns submitted 'to the counsel

siderable mental perturbation. Then
General Tracy in a grave voica ob
jected to the admission of tho letter on
tiie ground, first, that it was written
by the advice of his counsel, W. W.
McFarland, and, second, that it was
written and signed by Mr. Wiman in

would be better for him to do so, and
that if ho did so no proceedings would

After considerable argument Mr.
Wellman asked Judge Ingruh im to

Wiman a letter ot oonfeaiion, and tne
justice said that he saw no grotlntl
upon which the paoplo could ho debar

Gracefully Yields the Floor When

of the Day.
WaBHWOTOE, June 13
SKCOND day's debate on the wool
schedule was opened today in
tho senate by Mr. Sherman, who
made an earnest argument
egiilOSt free wool, as a thing that
would result In the destruction of the
wool growing industry of the country
and would be "the culminating atroc
ity of tne bill." He declared that the
pending bill if it were submitted to the
people of Oiiio, who Were largely inter
ested in wool growing, would not re
ceive tho Btipport of one-lifth of the
He was followed on the samo sido of
tho questio i by senatifts Duboy,
Stewart, Hboup, Hausbrnugh and
Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell demanded for
the wool grower consideration ecjnal to
that given to the woolen manufacturer
whoso duties had been cut down be
tween ono half and two-thirds. "Do
with the wool grower." he siid. "no
worso than that."
After the delivery of theso speeches
a disonsslon was started by Mr. Goorge,
Mississippi, as to whether if a duty
were placed on wool (to which ho did
not express any opposition) compensa
tory dUtiei additional to those report
ed by tho finance committee would
havo to bo givon to manufactured
goods. That discussion oecupied an
boor and a half, and was closed by
Mr. Frye, Maine, with a passionate ap
peal for protection to American wool
MR. QUAY IS READY.
All the day, Mr. Quay (Pa.) had been
hovering a boat the obambtr ready to
go on witu tho eighth instalment of
his speech whenever th supply of talk
from other senators would fail. Oc
casionally he crossed over to the Dsm
ooratio side and hold coiiv-raations
with Mr. Jones (Ark.) nnd othor mem
bers of the flnanoe committee as if ho
were negotiating terms on which ho
might bo willing to wind up his speech.
If that was his purpose it must havo
failed for half an Hour before tho usual
time of adjournment he rosumed ami
set out to read another seotion of his
apparently endless speech.
Mr. Quay soon yielded tha floor to
Mr. Harris, Tennessee, v?ho asked
QOanlmoOS consent that after a speech
by Mr Aldrioh tomorrow the further
discussion of the wool schedule should
be under tho live minute rule, but it
wsb annonnoed that Senators Lodge,
Piatt and Teller desired to speak to
morrow on tho wool schedule, and did
not wish to be restricted to live or ten
Finally Mr. Harris said that ho was
raising no qnestion about Inteutlonal
delay. The thing which be complained
of was the delay itself. Ho gave uo

The continued warm weather had a
depressing Influence upon tho hotis to
day, and although the Indian appro
priation bill was taken up promptly
and held the attention of the commit
tee the Wbols four hours, bat eleven
pages were disposed of. Several alight
amendments wore made to the text,
chu lly In the way of increasinc; ap
propriations for tho support and civili
sation of certain tribe The chief
event of tho session was a discussion of
the present Indian policy of tho gov
ernment, especially with reference to
the education of the children of the
red men, iu the course of whioh Mr.
Reed, Maine, made a brief speech that
held the closest attention of the com
mittee and received a round of ap
plause at its clou .
In the oonrse of consideration of the
items for the support and civilization
ol Indians, Mr. Smith, (1 m., Arizona),
criticised the attempts to Christiauiie
the Indians before civilizing them. Ho
said that the Children eduoaled at
schools In the east and off the agency
in wnich their parouis resided, wont
back home un 1 fell into the habits of
their ancestors, and tho efforts In their
behalf wore practically Wasted. Mr.
Million, (Rep , Penua.), stated that the
great majority of tho Indian children
educated at Carlisle, in his state, did
not go back to their original condi
tions, either of residence or life.
In the course of his speech Mr. Rood
said that unipiretionably tho education
of tho Indian may be carried to a
point which in individual oases will lit
him for association with the citiz'iis of
Pennsylvania, or of Maine, or of Mas
sachusetts, aud if he stay with the
citiz-ns of thoso states he will un
doubtedly bo very much improved in
his status, and tho country will have
tho benefit of a now citizen. On the
other hand, if ho is educated beyond
the reach of tho tribe to which he be

Continuing Mr. Reed said that it
seemed to him that whilo it may be
proper to to take individuals and edu
cate them to be distributed among tho
community, it is also equally true that
the best method of reaching the Indian
question is to have those schools which
commence with mutters nearest to
their present thought, and gradually
lift them up through industrial means
until they all begin to realize and un
derstand the advantages of tho change
and when thoy ull of themcome to this
understanding, which is necessary for
progress, saoh ono supported by all the
rest, then they will all come up gradu
ally together, and rery soon we will
find them fit to be citiz-ns.
Government Doe Not Know How to
Dieposn of TTnreinarni-ad ChlBanin,
Washington, I). C. June 13 A
question that is caming the treasury
uepartment considerable bother just
now ia what to do with the unregis
tered Chinamen. According to tho
official report made by Commissioner
Miller, 107,000 had complied with the
extended Geury law aud registered.
Official estimates place the number
of Chinese in this country at 110,000,
so that it would appear thut there are
now in the United States 3,000 un
registered Chinese, every one of whom,
according to the law, must be sent out
of the country. Thero is no money
appropriate 1 for the purpose, and as it
costs fully $75 per head to send China
men back to China, the aggregate
amount required for the purpose will
be quite lanze.
Iu the meantime under circular In
structions sent out by the treasurv, any
citizen can uppear before a United
States commissioner and make com
plaiut against any unregistered China
mau, and United States marshals and
cutom officers are by law directed to
do so. Secretary Carlisle und Attorney
General Olney have the vexed question
under consideration and will probably
make some official announcement on
the subject shortly.
