"i hat he president hud

not a word of truth 111 it and you can
s y so. The president bus never intpr
lered in or.r il. li -r itio-ia in tne slight
est manner, lie has treated the mat
ter with great delicacy."
This ntitlioritativ statement madd
ly Mr. Wilson whs called out by the
storks th;it wer circulated about both
winirs of l ha capitol today. As the
members of the house dropped into th
chambers' this luortiiun they li'id all
he.:rd the sunn story, which had evi
dently criminate 1 in the hotels lust
niKht. Th story Wiis related with so
much circumstantiality of detail that
by the hour of noon a dozun members
conl 1 h found wiio claimed to know
pisidvly that it was correct Later
in the day came a new r-port that the
conlerrees were furtherapart than ev. r;
that the senatetconferrees acting und r
instruction "from the body
had fl itly repudiated their promises of
te day previous and that "a dig inreo
in.; report would likely be mado to
A nieinU-r who is a manager on the
part of thehouoe, said that yesterdaj
the proposition was m ido t.'itm that
they uiixht have their choice between
free iron ore or free coal and that while
this matter was beiijf discussed Air.
G ruian made a proposition that the
bouse should have free coal and that
irt'D ore should remain at 40 cents a
ton. According to this conferree, this
proposition was accepted and Mr. Gor
man then gent another oiler in
tho shape of fre sugar. Tina
conferree was frank enough to admit
that this second offer fairly took
away tho breatuof the house members,
but 8. id that after they had dis
cussed it for a short tims it was d
c'.ined with thanks. He add the house
conferreea had m id.) ud their mind
that they did not want free sugar but
teat they would stau I by the sugar
schedule they pr viously suggested
and which had been agreod to nil
around in conference to wit, a duty of
40 per cent, on raw su-tar, a doty of 40
percent, on raw in the refined and
one-fifth cent a pound differential for
ll)' r fining interests. So far as the
house was concerned, said ttlis con
ferree, th' y stood just wuere they did
last night, lor a tiuiy on sugar, iron
taxed lit 41) c-ntg a ton and free coal.
This morning, he said, the seuate in
sisted that the proposition should tie
fre iron oro and coal dutiable at 40
cents a ton, and the house refined to
accept it. Alter the conference this
afternoon one of the most prominent
senators on tlie committee said that
he would never vote for an agreement
that included free coal for the rsason
that such a bill could not pass the sen
ate and lie did not propose to lend him
self to any scheme tiiat was intend -d
us a trap to get the bill into the senate,
wi.oro it was to be killed.
This benator m idd the emphatic
btat-ment that coal could not Ln free,
and he declined to say whether there is
an agreement in sight or to Bay that
there was not. ''We may agree in an
hour," said he, "or we m iy be here for
6. vcial days and po3sit)ly forever."
Tho co il men in t bo senate ara up in
Brms. t the thought of free coal, and it
looks as If ail tnat had been done was
nlmnt to l.e undone. As a matter of
fact, wl i!e coal and iron ore are play
ing an important part iu this discas
bion, they by no means occupied all
the attention of the conferreeg today.
It was Baid by one of the senators
that as fast as an agreement was
reached on thing something els
that could not be granted by the sen
ate was asked by the house and insisted
upon, although to give it was imperil
ling the success of the bill. Tne whole
conduct of the honse conferreeg :
p-nred to be, this gentlemnn said, that
of people who were seekiug to consume
time and cause delay. This after
noon the demand was made that
the woolen, cotton and metal
schedule be reduced, and this
nt once set the senate conferreea
by the cars. They told their associates
that they eould not do it and the speci
fic assertion was made, with the an
thnrity of the gentlemen referred to hy
the senate conferreeg that if, the sched
ules is question were change 1 that
neither Senator Smith nor Senator
Jlnrpby wonld vote for the bill and
that any effort to change the metal
schedule wonld start Senator Quay
again und no man conld tell what the
result would be, but even the most san
guine friends of the measure would
feel that its defeat was near at hand.
Any deviation from the schedules
now in the bill affecting the Industrios
of New Jersey and New York will be
opposed by the two senators referred
to, even to the extent of voting against
ti e bill. All these things were told the
couferrens today, but they only laughed
at it and professed to look upon it as
wat they oalled a great game of bluff.
It all events it is known that when
tha conference adjuorned tonight,
shortly before 0 o'clock, the house was
still urging that these schedules he
pared down and the senate was still
urging that to do so meant certain de
W hat the outcome will be is uncer
tain. One of the senate conferrees to
night said that he would not say that
au agreement wag iu sight, uor would
lie predict that an agreemvnt could not
be speedly reiiched. The whole situa
tion was, as he expressed it, "in the
air" with the possibility that something
might happen at any moment. Both
suits are becoming d'SUTite and
there is a vast amount, of chafing
at this delay. There is a probability
and that is all, that the Democrats
may reach a conclusion tomorrow and
be able to call iu the Rpubliotu col
leagues, but there is nothing certain
about it. If that is not done some one
may nuke a motion that the senate
cou'errees be discharged. This would
bring affairs to a crisis so fur us the
senate is concerned.
What the remainder of the week will
bring forth depeuds entirely upon the
turn of events in the conference room
tomorrow and the temper of the senate.
There is a deep undercurrent of resent
ment at the obstinacy of the house con
ferree, as senators call it, and a pro
longation of the terrible tension to
which eongress has been put may pre
cipitate a sudden and unexpected end
ing of the whole business.

Spirit of Weariness Increasing in the
Senate Upon the Hawaiian Ques
tionMr. Boutolie Raises a Breeze
in the Lower Branch A Bill to In
crease the Efficiency of the Militia
Arouses nn Argument in Which
President Cleveland Is Criticised.
Washington, Aug U.
THE senate seems to have reached
that coti lition of apathy and
wenriness that unfits it for any
serious legislative business
which is uot connected with the final
disposition of the tariff bill and the
winding up of the Ion:; session. Today's
sitting came to a-close at 1 40, and a
part of the time had been given to the
consideration of executive business.
Nothing of public interest marked the
hrief legislative day.
The Hawaiian question come to the
frout strain in the lioiise today, forming
the sol j ct of the most spirited and
interesting portion of the proceedings,
Mr. B iiiteile raise 1 it as a question of
privilege. He repudiated the reported
imputation that in introducing the
resolutions recognizing tiie Hawaiian
republic, he had sought 'o obtain a
partisan advantage for the Republican
party. He was desirous only of main
taining the honor and dignity of the
government, and of observing the
unbroken traditions of the country
and of congreis He criticised the
failure of the committee on foreign af
fairs to act upon Ins resolution and de
nounced the Hiwaiian policy of the ad
ministration, especially the last act,
which he described as the grudging,
baiting, secretive recognition of the
repuldlo of II iwaii by tlie president.
He was called to order by Mr. Oilth-
waite and Mr. Cooml s, (Deui ), and re-
quired by the epeeker to take his seat,
titter tie had 'V"ked rounds of applause
from bis Republican iifsoriates.
B fore taking his seat, Mr. Bintelle
unsuccessfully endeavored to get nnnm
mons consent to ui ov tnat the com.
mitteeou foreign affairs be discharged
from tne further consideration of ui
resolutions and that they be considered
by the house.
The bill to increase tlie i frici ncy of
the militia came up ngjiiu and gave
rise to a diFCusnon in winch the. recent
riots nt Chicago were referred to. Mr.
Fiihi in (Deux, Ills.,) criticized Presl
dent Cleveland's order sending federal
troons there, while Mr. Cannon (Rep.,
ill.,) vigorously defended it.

erty damaged Tlie scene of the dis
turbance is iu wl'.ut is known as the
Park Hill section of the city.
The unfortunate men ara two Polish
miners known us John and Frank.
They were working in a chamber
which is in close proximity toor directly
in tho district nlr-ctel by tho fall.
Richard Evans, a miner, who was at
work but a snort distance from the
Polauders, saw tlietn last as the roof
begin to work. He shouted to them
to run for th dr livea and then sturte 1
fnr the foot of the sh aft Looking back
he beheld the Pol mders milciuif for
their chamber, h iving been cut off
from escape by t i" r iclc, which begin
falling just us they were starting to
follow him. Ev.ns would havo un-
lonhtediy been c iu : ;ht h i 1 his cham

Luckily he was working jtist nt the
edge of tlie cavc-in, and by his timely
llHcoviry oi tb'j roof being in action,
ho escaped from beneath the f,ill.
A soon us word was received at the

piisnutid steps were taken for their r -
covery. liigiiieers and surveyors re
paired to the sceue and with the as
sistance of Evans und tne churls au 1
maps of tho mine workings it was as
certained that the chamber oi the
imprisoned men, wliura thoy were
most likely shut in. was located direct
ly beneath tho Waguer property on
II in iilou street.
Tnis property was not affected by tlie
disturbance, although the houses on
ihe opposite side of tho street were
badly shaken. There was a bare possi
bility that the two men hud uot been
killed and might yet be in the cham
ber. General Manager S:orrs resolved
to work ou'this meagre hope and nt
once telegraphed to II. P. Simpson, at
Wyoming, for a steam drill. Tne word
was sent nt 5.30 and within three hours
the in - i nu I machinery were on tie
spot. The setting up process was im
mediately been n and at liliduigUt tuc
drill was ready to be set in motion.
It will be necessaiy to go down only
sevenly-livo feet to reach the chamber
where the men are supposed to be. It
was decided that a 2 inch hole should be
drilled, and under the moat advers cir
camstaiiccs it will not take over thirty
six hours to reach them. If the cun ii
tions are fnvorahlo it is thought thi:
time can be lowered to half that uutu
