Sale of Silks
The facts are simply these. We got
hold of a little parcel of the best
Silks on the market at a price far
below their real value. The lots In
each number are small and not
withstanding the fact that we
could not today buy more desirable
goods at regular prices for the coin
ing spring trade, we've decided be
cause of the smallness of the lots,
to let these Silks go on the same
terms as they've just come to us.

PROGRAMME OF THE SENATE
Kill I'ruliuuly Accomplish Nothing
BIT LOTS OP TALK IS PROMISED
.Mr. Jones Wishes to Have the I'tah Sen
ators In l ino Uefore a Vote la Taken.
The Monroe Itoctrine Will
lie Discussed Again.
Washington, Jan. 24. The week be
ginning tomorrow ends the second
month this congress has been in ses
sion. Denplte the fact that there has
been no holiday recess, but little has
been accomplished, owing largely to
the consideration In the senate of the
substitute to the house bond bill. Al
though this measure was speedily dis
posed of In the house. It has been the
unfinished business of the senate for
several weeks. The end. however. Is
In sight, for Friday last Mr. Jones, of
Arkansas, in charge of the bill, gave
notice that he would ask the senate to
remain until Thursday, or until the
bill was disposed of. It Is hardly likely
that a vole will be reached on that day,
as a number of senators have expressed
their Intention of speaking to the pend
ing substitute and the time is too short,
after the morning business each day
has been attended to, to permit of the
deliver of the speeches. It Is probable,
however, that before the week Is out
the vote will have been taken and the
free coinage substitute adopted by the
There can be little doubt as to how
the vote will result. Mr. Jones has
steadfastly refused to agree to a time
for a vote until after the election of the
two new senators from I'tah. They
were due to reuch this city last night,
ond as soon as their election had been
announced, Mr. Jones gave notice to
the senute of his desire to reach a vote
this week. Mr. Jones asserts positively
that the free coinage substitute will be
adopted and he places the majority at
between 5 and 8 votes.
Monroe Doctrine Talk.
Incidentally during the week there
will be more or less discussion on the
Monroe resolution reported by the com
mittee on foreign affairs. Mr. Thurs
ton, of Nebraska, one of the new sena
tors, but u man well known In nation
al politics, has given notice that he will
address the senate on these resolutions
Tuesday and a speech of some force Is
expected from the Nebraska senator.
Quite an urray of talent has been se
cured for the discussion of the silver
Mil this week and If all the gentlemen
who have signified thei Intention are
prepured to speak promptly, there need
be no lugging In the debate. Senator
Nelson, of Minnesota, vn'JI address the
senate tomorrow. Mr. Ti"nan, of
South Carolina, will speak on Tuesday;
It will be his maiden speech In the sen
ate, ami the reputation of the man at
home is such as to lead to great expec
tation from him In the senate. The
other speakers of the week will be Sena
tor Voorhees, who It Is said, will take
Senator Shermun to tusk for his atti
tude on the llnanclul question, and will
puy his respects to the recent bond
syndicate. Mr. Cockerell, of Missouri:
Mr. Mitchell, of Oregon: Mr. Bacon,
of Oeorgla; Mrs. lluiisbrough, and pos
sibly Mr. Hill, of New York, will also
speak on the money question. There
are probably others who have not yet
formally given notice of their Intention.
The Tariff Measure.
Immediately after the silver bill is
out of the way, the tariff measure
passed by the house will be reported
to the senate and that will take pre
cedence as the unfinished. H Is not
known whether this will be favorably
or adveisely ' reported. All depends
upon the vote of Mr. Jones, of Nevada.
If It should be unfavorably reported,
the Republicans will have it placed on
the calendar and they claim to have
enough votes to call It up and give it
the right of way. They also claim to
have a suillclent number of votes to
pass It when the time comes for taking
the vote shall arrive. Both the I'tah
senators, although acknowledged as
silver men, are both said to be favor
able to the Republican policy of pro
tection and will vote for the measure
agreed upon by that party In its recent

PASTOR ONHIS MUSCLE.
I'jccteda Pugilist front Ills House and Is
Arrested for Assault.
Massillon, Ohio, Jan. 26. General as
tonishment was created this afternoon
by the arrest of Rev. E. P. Wise, pas
tor of the Church of Christ, nor was it
diminished by the fact that he was ac
cused of shooting with intent to kill
Albert Arthur, a wrestler and pugilist.
The preacher found Arthur courting
his cook last night and when he refused
to leave by request, not only shoved out
the intruder, but, as he says, threw a
tumbler after him,
Arthur says It was not a tumbler,
but a bullet out of a pistol. Whatever
It was It took effect and the wound Is
quite serious. '
WORK oFpRUNKEN MEN.
Woodchoppers at Vandalla Torture a
Companion by Burning.
Vandalla. 111.. Jan. 26. At Pierron,
a station on the Vandalla road, west of
here, last night, a lot of woodchoppers
camping In the woods got on a spree,
and, because one of their number would
not drink as often as the others thought
It necessary, they stripped him of his
clothing, and, placing him on a stove,
held him there till his flesh was burned
to a crisp.
Then they took 'a red-hot poker and
raked up and down his back, burning
deep furows in the flesh. To finish up
their fiendish work, they smeared mo
lasses and flour over his body from head
to foot and pitched him out of the house.
BIGGEST WAVE OX RECORD.
All ilea Serpent Stories Discounted by the
Crew of the Alls awatd-
Philadelphia, Jan. 2S.-The British
steamship Ailsawald, which arrived
here today from Hamburg, was nearly
swamped last Friday afternodki off the
Georges shoal by a tidal wave. From
the time she lett the other side she met
with heavy weather and on Friday aha
was plunging her way through a rough
sea. Captain Jones and Chief Officer
Geary were on the bridge. They
glanced over the sea and a mile away
saw the most tremendous wave they
ever beheld. It was a seemingly soud
wavo of dark green water capped with
foam and towered as high as the ves
sel's foremast Before the vessel could
be brought head on to the wave. It was
upon them, and striking them on the
port side amidships, passed completely
over the ship, totally submerging it for
a moment. The wave left havoc in Us
path and carried one man overboard to
his death and badly Injured two others.
The man drowned was a Russian sea
man, and the two men Injured were
James Sproyle and Carl Rohrbeck,
sailors. As the wave passed over the
ship it stove In the life boats, swept
the deck of everything movable, ripped
off the hatches and tore away the venti
lators. The water poured down Into
the hold and Into the fire room to the
depth of six feet and It was thought the
steamer would founder. The wave was
followed by a storm of cyclonic char
acter and it was all the Ailsawald
could do to weather It and make port
In safety. It is thought the cargo is
badly damaged by the water shipped.

become evident he emihot be nomlnat
de, when It Is to be swung to Allison.
Even State Insurance ommlssioner
Hahn, Governor McKinley's closest ad
viser. Is alarmed over the scheme and
feurful it will go through. It Is only a
portion of a well luld scheme planning
"Ripper" legislation In. several cities
and centering on George Cox, the Cin
cinnati boss, who hus not made public
what favors he Is to receive. Cox
stands closer to Senator Foraker and
Governor Hushnell than any other man

FINAL STRUGGLE IN CUBA
The Situation at Havani Grows More
ARRIVAL OF WEYLER DREADED.
The ExodueS of Cubans from Havana
Continues General Garcia on
I'rult Steamer He Will Reln
force the Insurgents.
(From the Staff Correspondent of the
Havana. Jan. 26. The censorship of
foreign cables Is more strict than ever
before. The new censors' orders are to
allow nothing to go creditable to the
Insurgents or discreditable to Spanish
troops, nor any reference to military
movements. Matter permitted to pass
by his predecessor Is stopped. No ref
erence to the gravity of the situation Is
allowed. News published in Havana
papers is not permitted to be sent
The Cubans disbelieve the report that
Gomer was shot through the leg last
Friday and say he has been In the
saddle daily since. The only informa
tion comes from prisoners' statements.
The situation In Plnar Del Rio province
Is grave. Nearly all the towns have
been invaded and few troops are in the
province. The capital Is practically
surrounded and food Is scarce.
The residents of the interior are flee
ing to the coast. The exodus of Cubans
from Havana, continues largely due to
fear of extreme measures upon the
arival of Weyler.
The rebels' eastern columns have not
reached Gomez but are expected dally.
There Is some talk of a big battle after
reunion but it is doubted. The work
of constructing a circle of block houses
in the rear of Havana Is being pushed,
though no attack is expected.
Barcelona, Jan. 26. General Weyler,
the newly appointed captain general of
Cuba sailed from this port yesterdny
for Havana together with 0 cavalry
force one thousand strong.
Ueneral Uarcia's Movements.
Philadelphia, Jan. 26. A morning
paper will say today: General Callxto
Garcia, the most distinguished Cuban
Generul now outside of Cuba, has es
caped the watchful eyes of Spanish
agents and sailed from this port last
Thursday, it Is stated, on the fruit
steamer Bernard bound for Cuba.
General Ouivlu goes to Cuba at the
head of the most formidable expedition
that has ever left this country, which
he will take command of on the high
seas, where he will meet another fruit
steamer, the Jasof, with over 200 men
on board and n large quantity of arms
and ammunition. The plan outlined
for the expedition was for the Jaaof to
cruise on the high seas until the arrival
of the Bernard. When the tfwo vessels
met it was expected that Giuiial Garcia
and his son, Carlos Garclu. were trans
ferred to the Jasof. The Jasof Is
expected to reach a point off the Florida
coast today, and there, It Is planned,
to transfer the entire expedition, to a
steamer which will meet It on the high
seas. From those familiar with General
Gurcla's plans It was learned that the
expedition will at once make for some
point near the boundary line of the
province of Plnur Del Rio and the
province of Havana. General Gomez is
thoroughly informed of (ill the plans
fur the expedition, und at the point
agreed upon for the landing of the ex
pedition he will huve a Htrong body of
troops. Owing to his great popularity
In the district, It Is expected thut Gen
eral Garcia will at once place himself at
the head of a strong body of men In the
province of Plnar Del Rio.
Hope of the Cubans.
Among Cubans In this country great
hope Is placed in this expedition. One
of the drawbacks of the Cuban cause
has been the lack of commanders, who
combine both bravery and military sa
gacity. Should any misfortune befall
either General Maximo Gomes or
Generals Jose or Antonio Ma
rco, the Cubans' cause would
be In a rather embarrassing po
sition. General Garcia, however, Is
fully competent to take either general's
place at a moment's notice, and when
news of the successful landing of his
expedition reaches this country there
will be rejolclcng among the Cubans.
Washington.Jan. 26. Minister Dupuy
De Lome today received cablegrams
from Havana giving accounts of sever
al engagements between the Spanish
troops and insurgents, all but one of
which were of minor Imiiortance. In
that case General Gonzales Munoz en
countered the bands of Francisco Rabi
and Rlos in the Mula Pass, and suc
ceeded in putting them to flight. The
casuallties were not given.
It is explained that the importance
and significance of this encounter lies
In the fact that whereas Rabi and Rlos
were reported to be approaching Hav
ana to reinforce Gomez, they were en
countered by Munoz in the most east
erly portion of the Island, several hun
dred miles distant from Havana.
UNITED STATES HONORED.
A Banquet is Given In Honor of tncle
Colon. Jan. 26. Tranquility has been
restored In the province of Barranquil

Rome, Jan. 26. A dispatch from Mas
sowah says that a messenger has ar
rived at the camp of General Baratleri,
the commander of the Italian forces,

the Abyasinians, to King Humbert and

zine and blew up the fortress at Ma-
kelle upon leaving the town.

chiefs are angry at the release of the
garrison by King Menellk. as they be
lieve that they would have eventually
forced the Italians to surrender uncon
ditionally. It is said that the Abys
sinian army is disposed to march on
to Axum, In the state of Tlgre.
King Humbert signed a decree this
morning declaring the province of
Erythrea to be in a Btate of war. It Is
not expected that a peace can be ar
ranged with King Menellk without giv
ing him battle. The dispatches to Mas
sowah of reinforcements, munition,
cannon and shells continue.

handsome woman. Last summer Mrs.
Nellls spent some time at Lily dale and
brought home with her for a bartender
Edward Gardner, whom Bhe had met
at the Spiritualistic resort. Nellls car
ried i $10,000 policy on his life In favor
of his wife. Several weeks ago he was
taken sick and vomited severely. He

tartar emetic in his coffee. Saturday
night the girl caught and saved an
other dose which Nellls was to have
taken. Nellls got another dose today
but was relieved with a stomach pump.
The arrests followed and created great
excitement. The feeling was so strong
in Glrard against Gardner that only his
timely removal by the ofllcers saved
him from probable lynching.

the accepted policy and practice of a

BISMARCK ANB THE KAISER
The Iron Prince Does Not Approve of
the Emperor's Course.
CAUSE OP STRAINED RELATIONS
Bismarck Declines to Be teed as a Flag
for the Present Course of the
Emperor In His Kapld
Berlin. Jan. 26. Three times within
the past week rumors were In circula
tion In Berlin that Prince Bismarck
was dead. These reports had the effect
to cause a rush of inquiries to Frled
rlchsruhe to learn the truth. Among
the large number of visitors whom the
prince received personally and with
such courtesy and activity of movement
as to dispel the last vestige of anxiety
concerning his health, was an old and
Intimate friend and co-worker In the
political arena, who has given the Unit
ed Press the substance of an interest
ing conversation he had with the ex
chancellor, which serves to correct cer
tain impressions upon the public mind
in regard to Prince Bismarck's relations
with the kaiser. Not once since his
resignation of the office of chancellor.
Prince Bismarck said to his friend, has
the emperor spoken to him upon the
subject of politics except upon the
memorable occasion of the kaiser's visit
to Frledrichsruhe on March 23 last,
when his majesty came to the ex-chancellor's
residence with General Count
Von Waldersee. The emperor was at
the time very angry about the vote in
the Reichstag refusing to pay the unit
ed respects of that body to the prince
upon the occasion of his birthday. .
Prince Bismarck admitted to his
friend that he was well able to go to
Berlin on Jan. 18. when the twenty-fifth
anniversary of the founding of the em
pire was celebrated, but he did not go
because he emphatically declined to
lend his name as a flag for the present
course of politics which la being direct
ed by the kaiser uoon lines which the
ex-chancellor regards as radically
wrong and of which he profoundly dis
approves. It was a move of rare clever
ness on the part of the emperor, the
prince said, to make a spontaneous call
at Frledrichsruhe recently, thereby
creating at home and abroad the Im
pression that the Imperial policy had
the full approval of Prince Bismarck or
at least his tacit assent. Nothing of
the kind was true, however. The recent
moves of the kaiser, he said, were grave
mistakes. Gemany Ind no business
whatever to meddle in foreign compli
cations unless Germun Interests are di
rectly menaced or assailed. If the
powers huve grouped themselves defi
nitely either for or against certain
causes, what of ii. Germany hus still
time to decide to what extent her in
terests are Involved.
Kaiser In III Health.
The rash actions which the emperor
has sometimes Indulged In, the I'nited
Press Informant said, must be credited
to the fact that the kaiser's Btate of
health Is not always normal. His Ir
rltatibllity, caused by worrying and
frequent violent headaches, have quite
often been responsible for a quick word
or deed on his part. It may be added,
too, thut he sleeps very little, in fact
not at all sufficiently to enable him to
maintain his health.
The present government of Germany
Is deprived of all lnlative In the man
agement or direction of politics. The
emperor directs everything personally
and his ministers and secretaries of
stute are merely his executive officials.
Among his many Irresponsible counsel
lors It Is always the last one having tin
ear of the kaiser who Is charged to see
that the Ideas of the emperor are car
Prince Bismarck's personnl organ, the
Hamburger Nachiichten. prints articles
almost dally giving pointed expression
to some of the foregoing views.
A case affecting Germans becoming
American citizens has just been decided
by the supreme court of the empire in
Liepsic. Mr. F. W. Hoehme, a druggist
living In Brooklyn, N.' Y., nnd a native
of Lelpslc, was sentenced by a lower
court to pay a line of 200 marks for emi
grating to a foreign country without
having fulfilled his term of military ser
vice. He appealed through his father
from the decision of the court. The su
preme court In rendering Its decision
upon the appeal finds that Hoehme as n
