Washington, April G. The expecta
tion of the friends of the Chinese ex
clusion bill Is that Its consideration by
the senate will be concluded by the
middle of the present -week, If not be
fore. The Philippine government bill
will be taken up immediately after
wards. This bill piobably will occupy
attention for a considerably longer time
than has any measure since the Philip
pine tariff bill was passed, and the
Democratic members of the committee
on Philippines are now veiy indus
triously engaged in preparing for the
debate. They do not profess to be able
to defeat the measure, but pay they
will make strenuous efforts to secuie
material amendments. They object to
various features of the b'U and will
charge that its primary p ose is to
permit the granting of f ranch. "ses. They
also will take exception to the unquali
fied continuance of the administration
of the affairs of the archipelago, with
out making any provision looking to
any form of self-government for 'the
Philippine people. Other points of
controversy will be the disposition of
the friars' lands and of the public
lands. Strangely enough, in view of
recent controversies, the currency pro
vision, for the present at least, seems
to be the one feature on which there
is harmony among all factions.
Senator Lodge, as chairman of the
Philippine commission, will have charge
of the bill, but will make no prelimin
ary explanation of its provisions, lie
will seek to have the senate proceed
Immediately to the consideration of the
details of the measure. At least all the
early speeches on the bill will be made
by members of the minority of the
committee, but which of them will lead
off has not yet been decided. AH of
them are preparing set speeches and
expect the assistance of other Demo
cratic senators in the general debate.
They count upon devoting two or three
Weeks to the bill.

Battle for Cuban Reciprocity.
The igreat battle over Cuban recip
rocity, which created such a protract
ed struggle among the Republicans,
both in caucus and In the committee
on ways and means, will bo fought out
on the floor of the house this week, Tho
ultimate passage of the Payne bill, pro
vldlng for a 20 per cent, reduction on
the products of Cuba after the nego
tiation of a reciprocity treaty and the
enactment of our Immigration laws by
the republic of Cuba Is regarded as a
foregone conclusion, but the situation
Is a pompllcated one, owing to the divi
sions among the Democrats as well as
the Republicans, How far the Repub
lican opponents of the proposed legis
lation will carry their opposition Is not
dellnltely determined, The strength of
this opposition has dwindled until It
probably numbers less than thirty, On
the other hand, up to tho present time,
a large majority of the Democrats fa
vor the greutest possible freedom of
trade with Cuba and would vote for u
deeper cut than the ways and meuns
hill proposes. Others like Newlands, of
Nevada, uro In favor of the Immediate
annexation of the Islands and quite a
number under tho lead of the Louisiana
members will oppose strenuously any
tariff concessions whatever. It Is hint
ed that tho attitude of the Democrats
In the senate who have fixed on a pro
gramme of opposition there may re
sult before the vote s taken In mote
unity of action on the part of the Dem
ocrats of the house. Some of tho Re
publican opponents of the bill will
peak against it, but the leaders of
the Republican opposition show u
strong disinclination to participate In
the debute on the ground that there Is
liu uvye u( ueicuiint; me mil uuu mm
their speeches would become Demo
cratic campaign material In the coin
ing congressional campulgn. The bill
will be brought up on Tuesday as a
revenue bill, which Is privileged under
the rules, but no special order will be
brought in for ltt consideration. In
this way the possibility of a defeat of
a rule through a combination of the
Republican recalcitrants and tho Dem
ocrats will be avoided. The general
debate will be allowed to exhaust Itself.
The leaders on both sides estimate that
not moie than three days will be con
sumed In general debate. The leal
light will come subsequently, when the
bill Is read for amendment under the
Jive minute rule. It will be then that
the Democrats will seek to offer
amendments having for their purpose
the opening up of the whole tariff ques
tion.. While some of the amendments
might command some Republican votes
If they should actually come to a vote
they will be ruled out of older in the
house as they were in committee, and
the only method by which they can be
reached would be by overruling the
decision of the chair. It Is cettaln that
not half a dozen, if, indeed, any Re
publicans, will go to this length, so
that the Republican leaders feel as
sured that none of these propositions
will come to an actual vote. The only
amendments which will be held to be
germane and In order will be those In
creasing or decreasing the amount of
the concession and the latter feel rea
sonable safe in the prediction that the
caucus decision for 20 per cent, reduc
tion will stand. It is their hope that
on the final vote the bill will be passed
by Republican votes. The Chinese ex
clusion bill, which will come to a final
vote tomorrow, will command pi ac
tually every vote in the house. The
only question is as to how far the ma
jority bill will be amended by the in
sertion of provisions to make it more
in line with the moie drastic substitute
which has been offered by the minority.

Pittsburg, April C The following will
lead the editorial pnge of the Clstzette
"More than a year ago the Gazette
nnnounced that Mr. Ileniy W. Oliver
was not a candldute, active or passive,
for election to the United States sen
ate, but, nevertheless the use of his
name In that connection has continued,
and of late has become frequent,
"While this use has not been author
ized by him, It Is due to the public and
himself that his position should be dis
tinctly stated. The Gazette Is, theie
fore, again authorized to announce
that Mr. Henry W. Oliver Is not now,
nor will he hereafter be a candidate
for United States senator.
"In reaching this conclusion Mr. Oli
ver feels that he Is laying down u bur
den, rather than making a sacrifice.
"It has been f' ely charged of late
that Mr. Oliver and his friends stood
ready to take part In any 'deal' for the
settlement of differences In the Repub
lican ranks that would land him In the
United States senate. This announce
ment ought surely to set such rumors
"It must not be understood that Mr.
Oliver proposes to 'retire from politics.'
Not at all. He has always taken a
deep interest in things political, and he
will continue to do so; but It will be as
a private citizen."

of the Ibrox park disaster, when a num

the collapsing of a spectators' stand
during the international foot ball game
yesterday afternoon between England
and Scotland, have been completed to
day. They eclipse nil the icnorts and
estimates of the casualties which were
current last night.
The disaster has resulted in tho death
of twenty-one persons and the Injury of
two hundred and fifty. Nearly two hun
dred of the latter were so seriously hurt
that they were taken to infirmaiies for
operations and treatment. One hundred
and fifty of them still remain in the
infirmaries. A large proportion of the
Injured had limbs broken, bodies
crushed and mangled and heads and
faces gashed. Several more deaths will
undoubtedly result from the most criti
cal cases of fractured skulls.
Today the Infirmaries were besieged
by friends and relatives of the victims
of the disaster and heart-rending
scenes were witnessed when the names
of those who died today were posted
outside the buildings.

Baltimore. Md., April 6. The silver

with solemn and' unusually elaborate

Tuscombla, Ala., April 6. Three men
are dead, three mortally wounded and
four seriously wounded, ns the result of
Sheriff Gassaway attempting today to
arrest Will Reynolds, a desperate negio.
The dead are: Hugh Jones, shot
through the head: Bob Wallace, Will
Fatally wounded: Sheiiff Charles
Gassaway, shot through the arm and
abdomen: Will Gassaway, shot through
the abdomen; P. A. Prout, shot through
Seriously wounded: Payne, shot
through the chest; Jim Finney, shot
through the right shoulder: Robert Pat
terson, shot through the log; Jesse Da

All the foregoing casualties, excepting
the death of Reynolds himself, are the
result of the deadly fire of Reynolds
With a 43-callbre Winchester. The negro
was in his turn riddled and thrown into
a 'fire.' - -
Sheriff Gassaway went to a negro set
tlement, ''Knardtown," this morning to.
arrest Will Reynolds, for obtaining
gqods under false pretense. The officer
was met by the negro, who opened fire
with his rifle, wounding the sheriff, and
immediately firing upon the deputy,
William Gassaway. who was some 300
yards away, mortally wounding him.
As soon as possible every man in town
who could procure a gun was in the
neighborhood, but owing to the location
none dared to venture within the open
space. Dynamite was procured and the
house In which the negro was barri
caded was fired upon, but to no effect.
At 1 o'clock Captain Simpson, of the
Wheeler Rides, arrived with twelve
guns and 1,000 cartridges, which were
distributed among twelve picked men,
This company was stationed around the
house and riddled it, but the negro 'had
taken refuge in the cellar and returned
the fire, killing Jones and wounding
Finney. Coal oil was then procured and
after four hours of hard work the
houses adjoining that in which the
negro was located were tired. About 8
o'clock the house In which the negro
was located was llred by the Wheeler
Rifles, who had arrived on the scenu.
The negro toook refuge in a shed and
opened lire, killing Wallace and wound
ing Davis, but tho people and some
militiamen riddled the negro and the
crowd, numbering 1,000, grabbed the
body and threw it in the burning build
ing. Wallace, who was killed, was
closing tn on the negro, who shot him
through the body. His body felt In the
burning debris, but was recovered,
Davis, Wallace and Falkner were the
men who flred the building.
Relic seekers cut off tho negro's
fingers and such parts of the body as
could be procured.
Three houses were burned In the effort
to reach the negro.
Several horses were killed in tho
battle. Tonight It Is reported that the
sheriff and his brother have no chance
to live. So deadly was the negro's aim,
that it was possibly an hour before the
body of Prout could bo recovered. No
shot was llred by Reynolds that did not
tell, when those whom ho was flrius
upon could be seen. Tho excitement to
duy wuh Intense, but there Is no fear of
an uprising upon the negroes.
Fully 2,000 people from Florence and
