Blakely, a former employe of the paper mill of this city, incurred the displeasure of some of his fellow workmen and lost his situation. He applied for reinstatement and, being a good workmanj he was given his old position. This so enraged William Moore, Price West, F. Gladwin and Charles Smith that they determined to lynch Blakely, and accordingly wont to his house at night, accompanied by S. B. Hatfield and Charles Cope, supposed friends of Blakely, and called hiiu out. He was dragged into the street and a rope placed ahout his neck. He was horribly mi-streated and then taken home to secitre his clothes, that he might die with his boots on. Mrs. Blakely attempted to take th.e rope from his neck, and was knocked down. He was then gagged and while one of the villains remained to guard the terrified wife the others dragged their unfortunate victim within a short distance of the penitentiary, subjecting him to horrible torture on the way. While searching for a suitable tree from which to hang Blakely the gag dropped from his mouth and he set up such a cry as brought the penitentiary guards. The entire party except Smith were arrested. 1 LiWS. The New National Bill Likely to Pass the House. ANOTHER HOUSE OEALON SILVER.

'Wasiiinoton, June 23.-The clerk of the senate finance committee has completed the preparation of the statement called for by the Plumb resolution adopted by the senate, showing the increases and reductions in revenue which are estimated to follow the enactment of the senate taritt'bill, compared with the present law and the house (Mc-Kinley) bill. The importations for the fiscal ye.ar of dutiable goods (the rates on which it is proposed to change) aggregated j;390,43'i',117.07 in value and the duties collected on these aggregated $101,408,840.49. The estimated duties on these articles (or an aggregate equal to that of the fiscal year) under the house bill is estimated at iji'�08,:W4,!)77.'?7, while under the senate bill the estimated receipts from the same aggregate are $201,689,y07,08. The house bill transferred to the fi-ee list articles which during the fiscal year 1889 were received in aggregate value of |l07,921,73."i.04 and paid duty amounting to *0I),730,89C.12. The senate bill transfers to the free list articles valued in the importations for 1889 at $108,919,-907 and paying an aggi-egate duty of $60,599,.343.'it�. Adding to the first of these amounts the amount of the internal revenue reduction found in the house bill tend struck out of the senate bill) the total reduction of revenue by the houso bill is found to be $71,064,774.18 while that of the senate bill is the figure named above, $00,509,343.69, These reductions, the committee says, appear to he certain, but if the imports should be the same as last year under the new rates, the reduction would amount under the house bill to $26,128,042,90. Under the senate bill to $20,318,283.10. The table further shows that the average equivalent ad valorem rate under existing law is 41.34 per cent., under the house bill 52.80 per cent., and under tho senate bill 51.97 per cent. These tiihles^says the committee, "ai-e prepared upon the plan and the theory usually followed, the estimates are largely conjectural and more or less unreliable and misleading. They are based upon the assumption that if the bill shall become a law merchandise of like quantities on values would bo imported as was imported during the fiscal year 1889, The basis can only be accepted as reliable where changes in rat03 are not of such character as to necessarily cause increased or diminished importatations," IIow tlie story Orisinated. Washington, June M.-Tho widely published story that the president had informed "a well known intimate friend" that he would not be a candidate for ro-lection is bused upon a remark ho made to John H. Woodward, f oiTiiorly tho correspondent of a Cincinnati paiier and now a railway traveling agent. Woodward formerly lived in Indianapolis and know the president well, although of opposite politics. Being in town he called at the White House and was cordially received. In the course of the convoi'sation the president incidcutally remarked that when his term closed he would go back to Indianapolis and resume the practice of law. This remark was repeated until it grew to a story to the dimensions published. ,< f ^--,       '   1  i.TiM0KE, Md., June 83.-Mr. - Bose, ' lohief of tho census 'bnreau-'here, lithe present' population-of Balti< '1 between mm md mmmk of pressing the re(nm'ocity amendment to t le tariff bill offered liy him in tho past week in pursuauce of the iilan for promotion of tlio trade with Siinthoni and Ceiifral Amcrinan countries, sug-ges(:ed by the international conference and outlined in the letter of Mr. Blaine to the president, which was made public Thursday. As tliis proposes a distinct departure fi-om tho policy of (lie house and-of tho senate finance committeo in several important partii;ular.s, it is likely to lend (o extended debate. So the lik-olihood of ;in adjournment of con-ress before tho first of September seems to grow less every day. Nortli Anicrionii Tnrner.s. New Yokk', June 23.-Tho fourteenth ican Turners met at Tjirn hall and en-tei-ed into formal business. Col. William Pfacnder of Ncv�' Uhii. Minn., was temporaiy chniini.-ui.
