(Rricb: is Cents ARGUMENTS BEFORE THE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE CONTINUES. The Public Debt Statement - International Standard of Weights and Measures—The Weather Crop Bulletin —Washington News. Washington, Jan. 2.—The ways and means committee to*day heard argumenta by representatives of wool-grow-ers. George H. Wallace, of Missouri, read a paper on the necessity of maintaining the duties of imported wool and suggested an adjustable tariff which would diminish when wool was scarce and high price, and increase when it was plentiful and low. He claimed there were imperfections in the present classifications and said the actual cost of the production of wool was about twenty cents a pound and that no money could be mads at that figure. P. B. Bennett, of B aston, editor of the American Wool Reporter, said the petition for reduced duties upon wool for the benefit of the manufacturers, who furnish domestic wool-growera the sole would secure a among that por-population con-wool. Bennett advalorem petition to congress describing the our market for their fleece, great many signatures • lion of our agricultural cerned in raising spoke of the be presented f*) signers as among the largest merchants and manufacturers, and reading letters from exports favoring this system of tariff. In answer to Chairman McKinley, the witness said personally he favored the advalorem petition. He believed an advalorem duty of IO per cent on combing and 30 per cent on carpet wool would afford sufficient protection. J. P. GibbB, of Greely. Colorado, taking the accounts of Colorado farms, showed that thirteen thousand pounds of raw wool cost the grower about 25 cents per pound ; at the seaboard it cost 30 cents and after scouring pretty nearly ‘JO cents. INTERN A I ION A JL STANDARDS. Hectplion ct WaihlagtoB of the National Prototypes of Weights and Measures Washington, Jan. 2.—The national prototypes alloted to the United States at the internal convention of weights and measures in Paris in S ptember last, were formally received and accepted by the president this afternoon in the presence of a distinguished company of representative and scientific men. They were brought from Paris in two boxes, carefully sealed and marked, and have been vigilantly guarded from the moment of their manufacture. Them new standards were constructed by the cooperation of the principal governments of the world. Their history in brief is a« follows: In 186‘J the French government invited other r ations to send delegates to Paris for the purpose of forming an international commission for the construction of a new meter for an international standard of length. The invitation was accepted, and our government app tinted Professors Henry and Hilgard as dolega’es In 1875 a treaty was signed at Paris for the establishment of an international bureau of weights and measures. The bureau established and put under administrative direction delegates from various countries concerned. A large staff of learned men was employed to study methods for carrying out practically the theoretical rtquir aments agreed upon as necessary by the delegates. The difficulties encounteied were all surmounted and the work was carried to a successful completion. The standards ordered by the various governments wore distributed by lot la*t September. Gum set of standards set apart as an international prototypes is kept in a cave at, the international bureau. The object of putting them in a cave is to secure them against accident and sudden or great changes of temperature, ae it is deemed possible that permanent changes in the molecular structure of the materials of the standards may be brought about by such fluctuations of temperature. No single person can have access to the international prototypes The cave is locked by three different keys in the hands of as many individuals, and every conceivable precaution has been taken to keep them invariable. The standards distributed to various governments are called national prototypes, and the same care will be ti ken to preserve them unaltered as is deemed necessary for the international standards.

Assistant Secretary of State Wharton was to day questioned in regard to the reported unauthorized seizure and detention by officials of the government of the United States of Columbia of three trading schooners belonging to New York merchants. Wharton said some days ago a letter was received at the state department from Poster & Company, of New York, complaining of the detention of one of their schooners. The department immediately telegraphed the American consul at Carthagena for an explanation and in reply received a message stating that it was necessary for all trading vessels to clear from the port of Carthagena. The situation is not fully understood, owing partly to the brevity and haziness of the consul’s message, The case will not be fully known nor any official action taken until the consul’s dispatches in full, which are in all probabilities or, their way now, are received at the department. THE WEATHER CROP BULLETIN. • Washington, Jan. 2—The weather crop bulletin for the month of December says: The month of December was unusually warm in all districts east of the Rocky mountains, while anormal temperature, prevailed on the Cslfornia coast and has been sightly cooler than usual on the north Pacific coast.

A DEATH AT PROVIDENCE. Providence, R. I., Jan. 2.—Frank Chafee, a well known man around town, died this morning of pneumonia resulting from la grippe. dr shrady’s opinion. New Y’ork, Jan. 2 —Dr. George E. Shrady, editor of the Medical Record, in an article upon the epidemic of the influenza says: There is now no doubt that the influenza, cr what is popularly known as the “grip,” has become epidemic in this city and is scattered broadcast over the country. It is also quite evident that its general characteristics correspond with those noted in connection with the prevailing type of malady in Russia, Germany aud France. Fortunately it is of such a mild type that save for its invasion of ihe large districts and for the large number of persons attacked it would scarcely be notictd in the cate gory of ailments connected with usual one which occur during the winter months associated with rapid and varied changes of temperature and humidity. Reports of the fatality of the disease, as might have been expected, have been very much exaggerated. Particularly does this remark apply to the alarming death rate in Paris. In point of fact there is no disease with such wide prevalence which has such comparatively low mortality. In this country, at least, there is yet to be reported the first case of death which can be laid to a pure and simple attack of the disease. Even the serious com< plications are so few as to scarcely merit recognition alongside of those which are constantly occurring with the usual diseases of the season. The after effects of the epidemic will doubtless be masked by a feeling of prostration more or less continued and the lo wering of the health tone. The previously robust will quickly rally, while feeble will require stimulants and tonics for variable periods. WITH THE MOURNERS. Washington, Dec. 31.—I hope thai during the coming year all the appointments that really can be made will be made, and that they will all turn out to be the best appointments that possibly could be made; and I hope that in future the comments of the newspapers will be based more upon the facts and less upon imagination. / John W. Noble. * - Washington, Bec. 31.—My hope for the new year is a very comprehensive one and covers the workings of this whole department. It includes the effectual eradication of disease affecting our live stock; an efficient System of meat inspection which will utterly explode the sanitary plea under which foreign countries obstruct our meat export trade; the establishment of a dairy division, whic will help our farmers to not only home consumption at adequately remunerative prices but will give them a good share of the foreign trade, and, in general, that my administration of the department will give the farmers cause to congratulate themselves on its new etatus. For the American farmers I desire an ample diversification of crops which will enable them to meet the entire demand for food stuffs of our own country, better prices for their products, and increasing prosperity. For the people of the entire country a better appreciation of the inter dependence of our rural and urban population, and a better understanding of those eternal principles of justice whice make it impossible for any class or section to prosper by injustice to any other doss or section without injury to the whole body politic.

Hundred^ of People Injured, Many Seriously—Terrible Fire in an English Pauper School-Queen Yietoria Worried—Foreign News. City of Mexico, Jan. 2.—A telegram from Villa Lerdo gives particulars of the fall of the plaza on last Tuesday while a bull fight was in progess. About 10,000 people were crowded into the building, and when the second bull was being killed nearly everybody rose and stood applauding and stamping their feet, when suddenly the side of the plaza commenced to give way. A rush was made and the extra movement of the thousands of spectators caused the structure to collapse, precipitating the unlucky inmates to the ground, the distances ranging from ten to twenty-five feet Many were buried beneath the debris. In their desperate situation fights arose among the men and many were stripped of every stitch of clothing. Crowds on the opposite side of the building, which numbered several thousand, became panic-stricken and fell and trampled on one another in their attempts to reach the outside. The tramping of the helpless and the agonized cries of men and women made the place scene of pandemonium. It was not until outside help came to the aid of people pinned down by planks and timbers, that the unfortunate victims were released and the wounds of the people attended to The number of wounded will reach into the hundreds, but while the injuries of many of them are serious and painful it if believed no case will prove fat ak_ TWENTY-SIX BOYS SUFFOCATED Terrible re at an Engllili School.

VICTORIA IS WORRIED Washington, Dec.*31.—'The thing I for hope more than anything else is the enforcement of the law throughout the country.

Third, to have fair play while the plans and experiments of the postoffice department are under way.

Jan. 2.—The delegation of Sioux chiefs had another talk with Commissioner Morgan to-day. John Grass said: ‘ Last summer you sent three men out to my country and they told us if we signed a treaty we would get schools and oxen and wagons and other things promised us in the treaty of 1868 and pay for the land we now sell besides. I see sortie of the same tnings are promised in both treaties. My people want to know if we are to have them twece.” Mad Bear said: You sent us three per sons to show us how to farm. They can’t talk to us, they only, make motions with their hands and then go away. We don’t know what they mean. If they would plow and sow and raise oropa we could see how they did it and learnt farm better than the farmers you send to teach Commissioner Morgan interrupted to say: “You should learn to understand English and then perhaps the farmers could teach you.” Mad Bear replied: “If we had got the schools on the reservations as promisee us in 1868, we would now know English, but we did not get them. We want to learn to farm and do like the whites. We want schools on the reservations so we can learn.” A LAND CASB DBdDBD.

The ship was blown off into the trough of tbs sea although going at full speed and became unmanageable: we stopped the engines and used a plentiful supply of oil which materially aided in breaking the crests of the waves, However, we shipped one fearful sea which carried everything before it:    smash ing one boat and damaging others: washing away a part of the flying bridge and injuring several of the crew. The engineer says part of this sea went down a funnel, the top of which is fifty-six feet above the water. The water came rushing through the tubes in such volume as nearly to put the fires out and caused great commotion among the men be ow. On the 18th it blew a heavy gale and on the 20lh the wind again attained the force of a hurricane. Daring the night we shipped a tremendous sea over the bows. It swept away everything in its way, carrying wreckage from the main deck over the upper bridge, about twenty-five feet high, and finally making an exit over the stern.

Bruce 111 Health Clawed br Trouble Over Family Affair*. London, Jan. 2.—The qup°n has permitted it to be announced tat she intends leaving England for    J continent early in the year, her pre    plans be ing to remain about a' —onth. The queen's health has been poor for some lime, aud it is undoubtedly due to her constant worry concerning family affairs. The marriage cf her favorite Beatrice to lattenburg, which, it will be remembered, the prince of Waler so strenuous-y opposed, the queen has realized to have been a failure, and the connection has been a much greater source of uneasiness than tbe public supposed. Now that the details of Battenberg’s laxest complication have been secured the mortification of the queen will be appreciated. Before his marriage to Baa trice young Battenberg’s poverty and good looks inspired him to put Himself in the hands of a designing Russian ? lady, who utilized her position iii the suite of the late empress Mf Russia to negotiate marriages between wealthy heiresses and penniless princes. She resided in France when Battenberg put his princely name on the matrimonmL books, and the matchmaker’8 first attempt was to bring about a marriage with Mile Donicourt, whose marriage to Alpid Musurus, son of the Turkish ambassador to London, has just been declared void. As the bride was a minor and French law gives the parent the right to annul a contract under such a condition, Mdlle. Dim-conrt rejected Battenberg on account of his poverty. He was then offered to Miss Winnyfreta Singer, daughter of the sewing machine millionaire, and now princess of Scey, after being hawked over half of Europe. Battenberg finally secured sufficient court rnfluence and the backing of the court of Hesse Darmstadt to promise success in London. Hither he accordingly came and Beatrice fell in love with him at first sight. Since the couple have been wedded the Russian match maker has persistently dunned Battenberg, and all he could equeere from his spouse’s allowance has gone to the woman as a price for her silence. Recently, tiring of the continued blackman BatMkberg refused further to submit, even in the £sce of threatened exposure. Thereupon the woman wrote in the most fulsome details Lord Cham berlain Lathom, accompanying her own statement with a mass of letters relating to Bittenburg’s wooing and showing him in an unenviable light. Lathom, who has given frequent evidence of his dislike for Beatrice’s husband, submitted the entire correspondence to the queen, and Battenburg waa sent abroad with the least possible delay. As he has been absent now two months it may mean an indefinite banishment. GINXRAL FOREIGN NKW*. NigottaUcni for On* in Progr*** at Trenton, N.J. Trenton, N.

It is reported that the South Pierre boomers, since the arrival of the troops, have resolved to attempt to take the town site by force if necessary, thinking that if they go on peacefully in the night time the troops will protect them from attack by the Fort Pierreites; while if they are ejected by the troops it will result in all the other inhabitants on the mile square being driven away until the land is opened. This would give them an equal chance to get on. Gould Not * jicl.

A General I a bu ram •• Agiat Arr **t«<l Cherokee, la., Jan. 2.—Dexter Turner, general agent for the South Dakota Citizens’ Life association, of Cherokee, Iowa, was arrested this afternoon on a telegram from the sheriff of Beadle county, presumably as the outgrowth of a difficulty with the state auditor of South Dakota. Purdem was thoroughly pummelled, and his head and face is terribly swollen; to the extent that his poor sick wife at home, who was awaiting his return, was unable to recognize him as her husband. Johnnie Bell got his coat cut nearly off of him. Since writing the above I learn that Messenger, who cut Hendron, was severely cut himself before he cut his man I also learn that Messenger was afterwards knocked down with a billet of wood by a woman and laid out for dead for a while, but his friends got him and took him away The number of fights were estimated to be about twenty. Butcher knives, brick bats and billets of wood were freely used for the edification of those present. The whole matter will be concluded before one of our justices. Johnnie Bell says it was a “rail” interesting time and lays it all to the baneful! effects of the present prohibitory liquor law. As Johnnie is a lively democrat, he thinks the democratic members of our state assembly should see to it that the law is repealed, or some one will get hurt. A Sad Death. Special to Tm Havk-Byi. Mt.
