He playing the Vidocq in order to get a list of the republican senators who were opposing the bill in the face of the administration. FRYt'S HOT SHOT. "When Mr. Frye arose to oppose this motion ihe fun commenced. Frye has a strong voice and is quite an orator. He walked out into the center aisle and proceeded to excoriate the republican senators, who had not the cour- age to vote to change the rules. Ho put the blame of the failure to pass the force bill said Elaine drew up the resolution and sent it here to Quay. The story is also going the rounds that tho ad- ministration is attempting to force Quay from the chairmanship of tho national committee as a punishment for his desertion. Quay, however, will not he forced out. But he will force his resolution through the senate and bury the force and fraud bill. THE TltlBUNK 13 DKSPEOATE. The Now York Tribune has a threatening editorial on the force bill this morning. It eays the house republicans have the same right to kill the tariff bill that the senators have to kill tho force bill, and mildly urges tho house to push its threat. The Tribune realizes defeat and is resorting to desperate ut hopeless measures. OEOEUIA CONGRESSMEN ON The Georgia congressmen do not look upon r. Felton's candidacy for congress against olonel Everett with favor. To a man they ay, if Everett was fairly nominated by a major- y vote of the democratic party, whether tho ajority be farmers, merchants, or lawyers, 1 democrats should support him. If not airly nominated, then it is different. Will Win. In speaking of the contest in the ninth xlay Mr. Cnndler said: 'I don't think there is any danger. I be- eve Wmn's election is absolutely assured, arnell's randidacy insures it if there had ooii any doubt before." IJoniiinjj May Be Dropped. There was a new move in the Augusta post- ftce mattor today, and it turns out that Den- ing is not so sure, after all, of getting the th'ce, Fiist Assistant Postmaster General lark-son hns always been opposed to Denning, nd had he been heru all tlie time, it is said by friends, that Denning would have ecu appointed in tho firbt place. Wanamaker wont out of town yesterday to e absent some time. Last night a number of elegrams came in from Augusta protesting gainst Donmng's confirmation, and. toil ay Ir. Clarkson sent word to Senator Sawyer to old up the nomination for a time yet. Clarkson will do aH in his power to have the rusideut withdraw tho nomination, ami if Vanamaker remains absent long enough it is ehoved he will succeed. At any rate tho ivelopments of today make" it certain that tr. Denning [will not be confirmed within omo time, if at all. Clarkson favors retaili- ng Major Boyco, and there is a chance hat Mr. C1 arkaon will be successful Will Visit Atlanta. The National Fencibles, Washington's rack military company, decided last night to o to Atlanta in Qctober. Tho boys will corn- lence drilling at once, and expect to carry off prize from the Georgia companies. Colonel E. J. O'Connor, of Augusta, and udge Guatin, of Macon, are here. E. W, B. upon their of Shoulders, the rules Now wag that out the question it was useless to go on and at- tempt to pass the tariff and force bills. "With tho tariff bill behind the force bill, neither could be passed without changing the rules and it had developed the force bill must be laid aside or both go. He then, indirectly ac- cused Mr. Edmunds of cowardice in opposing a change of rules in caucus. Mr. Frye wanted the bill passed, and blamec -the Edmunds crowd for its failure. A matters now stood ne left the im pression upon his hearers, that to pass the iQuay resolution was all that could be done. OTHERS TAKE A HAND. Senator Hiscock wanted a vote on the Quay ffesolution and said Then Senator Edmunds took the floor tc Strike back at Frye. He wanted both the tarii and force bills passed, but wan ted it done fairly without gag rule. He bad barely commenced towover, when cut off by the expiration o anormnK hour, i Senator Bvarts asked unanimous consent to and vote upon the resolution, bui Senator Aldrich objected to allowing the taril "fciU to go over. THE DEMOCRATS BNJOY THE FUN. The democrats enjoyed the fun immensel 4oday. They simply sat still and listened, sav Tvhen Senator Hoar stated that Senator Pugh of Alabama, had made a threat that ther be blood spilled if this force bill passet Senator Pugh simply said Hoar misconstrue Ibim willfully, and sat down. The question will come up again at 10 o'cloc in the morning. Quay's faction will say nothing unless force to. They are ready to vote and want it. T< "jiight they are perfectly confident of success and with the democrats expect to carry th absolution by a good majority, without chang or amendment. The vote will probably b leached tomorrow; again it might be postpone a day or two. But the result seems fixed. SOME STORIE3 AFLOAT. The story is going the rounds today that th  f 1870. It will be gratifying to notice the great Strides which the southern states have made in the man- ifacture ef iron since 1880, tho total product n that year being tons, as against j, in 1890. The decade has brought about the marked change in rank iri this industry in ,he state ot" Alabama, which, in 1880, occupied the ,enth place, with an output of tons, and winch now, in 1890, obtains third place, with an output ot an increase of more than per cent over the production of 1880. The development of the manufacture of pip- in tho United States during the ten years Torn 13SO to 18'JO, haft been phenomenal, and at the jrebcnt rate of incre.ibo in production, this sountry is destined soon to become the leading irodueer pig-iron in the world. poRPiblv reach- this distinction in tho calendar jear 1830. In nt of production, Fennsylvania standi first, Ohio second, Alabama third. Illinois fourth. New York fifth, Virginia sixth and Tennessee seventh. The superintendent calls particular atten- tion to tho rapid development of the blast industry of the southern states, as one of the most noticeable features of the growtl: of the manufacture of pig-iron in tho country. In six western, states which pro- duce pig-iron, there has been a large increase ,n production. THE CHARGES AGAINST KAUMC. The Committee to Investigate Them Begins Its Work. WASHINGTON, August 20. Tho special com- mittee appointed to investigate tho charges brought by Representative Cooper against Commissioner of Pensions Green B.Baiuiu, met today to begin its work. The committee con- sists of Messrs. Morrtll, Sawyer, Smyser, Good- night, and Lewis. Commissioner Kaum anc Representative Cooper were present at the meeting. The charges were read as a prelim- inary. In brief they allege that Commissioner Kaum sold stock iu a worthless refrigerator company to pension oftice employes, who were promoted as a consideration, and that he ad- vanced many thousand pension claims at the instance of George Lemon, a pension claims agent, who, as a return, became surety upon the commissioner's uote for After de- ciding to go into all matters covered by the charges, the committee adjourned until to- morrow. _ _ AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION. Its Thirteenth Annual Meeting at Saratoga Papers Head. SARATOGA, N. Y-, August thir- teenth annual meeting of the American Bar Association opened here today. Presideni Henry Hitchcock delivered his annual ad> dress. He called especial attention to the fact that up to this time neither of the hills introduced in the house and senate for the re lief of the supreme and other courts of tin United States, has become a law. The commission, to promote uniformity o legislation, presented a set of jrosolutions Among the new members elected Messrs. Perkins, Carson, Muhlenberg Heiaer. Pennsylvania; Wales, of Delaw aud Albert, of .Maryland, making a total mem bership of over one hundred thousand. J general council was elected, one niembe from each state. Henry C.

NEW YOKK, August opened at decline of one to two points on near and three to four points on late months, closing quiet and steady at ten points decline on August and tbree to four points decline on other months from yea- terday's Hcloaing prices. Receipts at tlie ports were 1.252 bales, a gain of 97G ba es over last year. The decline today was due to the fact that most all the news was bearish. Liverpool was dull and lower. Manchester was dull, :New Orleans, and some of the other southern markets were lower. Silver in .London was lower. Receipts at the ports were relatively large and were mostiv new cotton. Trading was high in options, although bales were sold for export. Cotton on spot was weak, but not quotably lower. ________ every opportunity to brinjj end. In the in- be company he strike they had with the third vice presi- lent, Powdorly and Mr. Devlin, repeated the offer which the knights have made from the beginning, that they would declare the stnko off if tho company would agree to submit the cases of tho discharged men to siivestigation of disinterested outside larties ou the understanding ;hat if it soould be shown that there was no cause for tlif discharge of any men other than ,heir connection with the Knights of Labor, such men should be reinstated in their jositious the representatives of the Knights of Labor agreeing to bind themselves ;o abide by the decision or finding of the in- vestigators. Mr, Webb positively refused to- to this request in the interest of peace. Being asked if they took the position that the railroad was tho private property of the company and that whether tho employes of a company for the public had any right to ques- ;ion the actions of tho management, they hesi- tated and at last took refuge in silence, which JIG representatives Qof the knights in rain tried to break. The latter said that if it v. as ;he policy of the company to maintain that, they would not admit that either the public or ALABAMA'S 1VEA1TH. Returns and the New tion of tho Tax Kate" Wanted. MONTGOMERY. Ala., August 3Tor many years the subject of taxation has been the question with Alabama politicians, and every platform has had as one of its planks a promise of reduction of the tax rate. This reduction proceeded gradually until in 1887 the rate was 55 cents on of values, which the following year was reduced to 50 cents. The legislature of 1888 passed an act provid- ing for a further reduction of tho rate to 45 I cents in 1889, for ,the taxes to be collected by or before the 1st day of July, 1890, and a further reduction of the rate to 40 cents on the lor the taxes of the year 1890, which are due October let, of this year, and mast be fully accounted! for to the state by the tax collectors by or before July The assessments upon which the taxes will be collected this fall and next spring have been completed, and the greater number of the abstracts of assessments in. the various counties of the state are now in the hands of tlie boards of revenue or the courts of county commissioners of the counties, awaiting equalization and ad- justment. Several of the counties have com- pleted this work, and have filed the perfected abstracts of assessment for the coming tax year with the state auditor. The ten or twelve abstracts already filed maybe taken as a fair index of those yet to come, and they indicate two things: First, that the total valuation of the property in the state will be largely in excess of the valuation this time one year ago; second, that owing to the reduction of the tax rate from 45 cents on the to 40 cents, tho net revenue will fall considerably below the revenue yielded by the taxes of the year past. This conclusion was evidenced by an esti- mate made on the first seven counties report- ing, which reported an aggregate increase in valuations ol ftufiO.OOO, yet the revenue yielded by the total fell short of the amount yielded by the same counties last year. Of those seven counties every one reported an in- creased valuation, but not one reported an in- creased revenue, and of the twelve counties which have reported so faronly one, tlie county of Franklin, reports an increase iii the revenue, although every one reports an increase in val- uation Of the counties yet to report, large increases in valuation are expected from the counties of Jefferson, Calhoun, DeKalb, St. Clair, Wal- ker, Colbert and Etowah particularly, but it is generally believed that the counties of Blount, Tust-aloosa. Greene, Escam- bia, Butler, Cherokee, Tallndega, Montgom- ery, Marshal, Limestone, Bibb and Shelby, will return increased valuations, but it is hardly hoped that the increases will bp suffi- cient to produce a grand total valuation for the whole state large enough to yield as much revenue as was collected during the year just closing. Withal, it is not thought probable that there will bo a deficit, as the taxes have for some years past yielded a surplus above the ex- penditures of the state, and the utmost that is apprehended is that tho next legislature may bo called upon to exercise more economy in the mattor of appropriations than has been felt to be necessary in past years. Tlie credit of Alabama is tiptop, the state having floated this year an issue of of 4 per cent broads -above par, to retire an issue ot G per ent bonds issued- ten years ago; THE DAY AFTER THE GREAT CYCLONE.

"The executive said Mr. Powderly, tonight, "says to the Knights of Labor and the public that the position finally assumed by the company makes it necessary for them to vindi- cate the right of labor to organize by prose- cuting the strike to the bitter end." Mr. Powderly "was asked tonight what would be the next move. Ho said it had not been determined, but that he would to- morrow issue an appeal to the mechanics and all other employes of the Central-Hudson sybtora and connecting lines. The document will be based upon the refusal of the company to difficulties, and will call upon them to stop work at once. Mr. Webb says that he was in constant com- munication with the chief officers, and that the Bee Line, the Lake Shore and every linked railroad was prepared for the strike if it came. Mr. Hayes, ol the executive board, said, to- night, that no more news would be ghen out tonight, whatever the executive board decided upon would be known only in the result to- morrow morning. The board will continue in session all night. THE SITUATION AT MIDNIGHT. At a few minutes after midnight this morn- ing, Messrs. Powderly, Hayes and Holland left the St. Cloud hotel and walked over toward the Grand Central depot. Here was a mystery- The labor leaders sank out of sight somewhere about the depot. The midnight express on the Central went out as usual, showing apparently that the fated hour was not midnight. In the depot are encamped about seventy-five firemen and the same num- ber of switchmen, supposed to be there to pro- vide for any emergency that might come up.

NEW YORK, August Master Sargeant, of the Firemen's Brotherhood, act- ing as spokesman for his conferes, made the following statement today: "There is little apprehension on the part of the public regarding the powers of this confer- ence. Myself and three Wilkison and members of the supreme council of the Federation of Railway Employes, bat as there are twelve members in the council, and we are but four, we have no authority to order a strike of our men. All we can do is to report the result of our deliberations with the executive board of the Knights of Labor to the ull committee of our supreme; council, of whicli I am chairman, and the full committee can then act upon the report. The other eight members of the council are within easy reach, _._ -nickly ery quick jht add that He Expected to Be MONTGOMERY, AJa., August "Willie Lewis, a nineteen-year-old negro, was convicted here today and sentenced to im- prisonment for life for the murder of his grand- mother.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex., August first annual regatta at Aransas Pass closed last night -with a grand ball. Several thousand people from Galveston, New Or- leans and other cities of the south, were in at- tendance during the three days of the event. Among the yachts entered in the competing races -were the Vila Vaughn, of Galveston.; Earnest, of New Alice, of Aransas Pass, and about forty other fast sailing boats. A Heavy ZEninfalL RICHMOND, Va., August Perhaps the most severe rainstorm ever ex- perienced here passed over the city this after- noon. The great downpour ol rain lasted for thirty minutes or more, during which time the streets overflowed the curbing and sidewalks, and many cellars were flooded. In. a low point the culvert could not carry oS the It had accumulated to the depth, of six feet, and the basements of all the dwell- ings near by were inundated. Beyond occur- rences of tills character no damage was done, Dfeatlis from Sunstroke. BEBT.II.-, August a forced march of the Bavarian, "regiment from Eibelstadt to WILKESBARB.E, Pa., August time grows 011, tho severity of the cyclone is more and more demonstrated, and it is singular that so comparatively few lives wero lost. Im- mense buildings, containing many people, wero unroofed and in. many cases almost destroyed in the twinkling of au eye, aud at this hour, when people were about the streets, amid flying timbers and debris of every character. The city, in its most frenileuted part around the depot, presents its appearance, and when it is remembered that and freight cars wero lifted from the tracks upon which tbey stood and laid on their sides while other cars were rushed along the tracks by the force of the cyclone's swirl, a small conception of its terrific velocity may be obtained. APPEARANCE OF THE TKR11OK.- The cyclone made its appearance suddenly and with portentous clouds, tremendous thunderbolts and streams of electric light that appalled the people. The Vulcan iron works and Keystone flour mill first felt the storm, which then swept on up Maine strpet, razing the buildings on the west side of the thorough- fare. Then it struck handsome residences, stores, greenhouses, pottery works, etc., along Maine street as far as Academy street. The western edge of tho storm extended to the lower end of Franklin street and Dana Place. Brick dwellings were unroofed and upper stories were torn away, and some were leveled to the ground. South Main aud Frankjiu streets completely blocked with fallen trees, roofs, timbers and wire. Veering eastward, the storm swept out Robs and Hazle streets, then up South Wash- ington street, extending as far east ou Koss as the Hazard wire ropeworks. It followed Washington street, wrecked St. Mary's church, then jumued to Lehigh Val- ley depot, Jersey Central denot, Stcgeaiayer's brewery, and swept along the railroad to Five Points. Here it turned eastward again, swept up Pearl street, out by Baltimore shaft No. 2, then dashed up the mountain side and spent itself in the woods. SOME TERRIBLE SCENES. 'Tho scenes at Hazard's wire rope works was terrible. The immense building was badly injured, and in the debris lay the dead and injured, the latter helpless, until as- sistance came to them. The number seriously injured at these works exceeds twelve, and there wore two killed. Tho scene at Five Points was Mothers, with their cliildren in their arms, cried to heai-en for help. Their frail homes were about them. The air outside was filled with falling buildings and debris of all sorts. Near the Delaware "and Hudson railroad, 011 Scott street, wero bouses occupied by the fam- ilies of James McGinley aud James Heiiagan. All the members of these two families were at home while the fearful" destruction was goin; on. Both houses were leveled to the ground Mrs. Eliza Jane McGinley, aged about twenty- eight years, and her babe, which she held to her breast, were crushed to death. John Mc- Ginley, aged thirteen years, was crushed to death. Mary Jane McKinley, a little daughter, was so severely hurt and crushed that but little hope is entertained of her re- covery. The family of James Henagan could not be found in the ruins of their home, and fears are entertained that they perished. LAEGE HOUSES DEMOLISHED, The Barber Ashphalt Company's works were blown down. S. L. Brown Co.'s mam- moth on Market street, con- taining ten wholesale stores, is among the ruins. The Murray coal breaker was partially destroyed, with heavy loss. The mammoth Hollonback breaker is a complete wreck. The fans were stopped while twenty-seven men were at work in Hillmau vein, hut luckily they were able to start them right away, and, although the hoisting machinery was dam- aged, the work of conveying men to the top was accomplished without accident. It was a very narrow escape. Blass White's mining drill works, on Scott street, are destroyed, as is also a house adjoining it. Houses betw een the valley tracks on the same street are gone. Bright's oil warehouse, oil barrels, and all are blown away. Up Bowman, Scott and Kidden streets all of the houses at the lower ends thereof are either blown down or severely damaged. The cyclone went up Pearl street to Baltimore No. 2 new breaker, which is damaged to the ex- tent of thousands and thousands of dollars. One Frank Fulrod was probably fatally in- jiured here. THE GIRLS PANIC-STRICKKN. In Galland's underwear factory, where three Lundred girls rrore at work, there was a terri- ble time, the girls becoming panic stricken and rushing aimlessly about, while many fainted. Fortunately none of them were dan- gerously hurt, though some of them may suf- fer from the effects of hysteria and convul- sions. The roof of the building was blown off and all the glass in front was broken. The ninth regiment is on duty in answer to the mayor's proclamation, and are assisting the police in every way. Unimployed men will be pressed into service in restoring the streets, and property owners have begun the work of reconstruction. A careful estimate places the number of buildings demolished and partially destroyed at nearly four hundred. The loss will reach nearly, if not quite, although in the present chaos no possible means of making a close estimate exists. THE KILLED AND So far as can be ascertained this morning, the following are known to have been killed and injured: Instantly Thompson, colored, aged ten years; Evi Martin Baker, Hazel street; John Fitz, aged sixteen, Hazard wire- rope works; Peter Pvittemeyer, aged twenty, Cinderella street; Mrs. Eliza J.

BRUNSWICK, Ga., August "The Post prints the following sensational story: A Nashville detective is here on a delicate mis- sion. Beatrice Lamotte, the daughter of a well- known civil engineer of Nashville, waa to be mar- ried on the 30th of July to a jonng physician of New Orleans. The match bad been made by Beatrice'b parents, and although distasteful to her, she had con- cluded to accept her as she termed it. The fact was, Beatrice had never met the man whose words of sympathy and admiration to stir her soul to its erj depths and infuse into her hciny; blissful anticipations. List January, however, while attending a thea- ter party, this perfect typo of .southern beauty met handsome Tom Carlton, of St Louis. The evening was a moat pleasant one. and Tom came to Nash- ville frequently after that, "on business" Tom. loved the pretty girl, ho In turn, realized that she could never become ihe wife of her parent's choice. Time after time did she implore her parents ta absolve her from the promise to wed the wealthy physician. Not onlj was her request refused, but Tom Calton was forbidden an entrance to the Ltmotte mansion. Alter that the lovers cou d onlv communicate by letter, and knowing iho day had bec-ii fixed ior the 30th of July, they determined to elope. liut providence had ordered otherwise. Durins; the early part of July Tom Carlton w.is prostrated with typhoid fever, and despite all that medical skill could effect, the poor sufferer breathed his last on the 27th instant. The sad intelliKeneo came to Beatrice's ears two tlajs after, ju-t ono day before her awful maTnafre morn. The prepa- rations ior the event were al out completed, and Beatrice's parents looked on Carlton'a death as a happy omen. But Ileatrice had made up her mind not to sub- mit to --o great a sacrifice. That fact was quite evident next morning, when Mr. and Mrs. motte awoke and found their missing. And sh3 has been missincr ver "nice. It was reported that .1 jiirl, her descrip- tion, had seen in li.rnmifjh.uii, but a clo-O search there proved fruitless. Tt was also re- ported that the iaUy wab in Brunswick, and hence the presence of an officer. MAY MARCH ALONG TOGETHER. A Movement to Join Together tlio W. C. T. and tlie Saliutioii Army. CHICAGO, August is a movement 011 foot for joining together the Woman's Christian Temperance Union and Salvation Army. 'At least that is what Miss Francis "Willard, the veteran president of the "Woman's Christain Temperance Union, said in a speccli at a meeting of the Saltation soldiers last night. MibS Willard did not into particu- lars, she merely gave an outline of what she hoped to see before another year rolled by. She had always been an ardent admirer of the old Salvation Army ever since it landed in America and began its crusade against whisky and slums. During the day she had a loiij; interview with Mrs. Ballhiptoii Booth, which tended toward a union of efforts of the Salva- tion Army sisters with those of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, and she hoped that at the next national convention the army would be represented, and that Mrs. BallingUin Booth would be the first delegate chosen.
