Tlio Governor Xlxpuctud to Veto anil Denounce the Mciisiiro. Baton Rouge, La,, July 7.-There ia much speculation here as to wliather or not the governor will veto the lottery bill. The five-day limit allowed the governor in which to return the bill expires to-day. The general belief is that the governor -will not only veto the bill, but that he will send a message to the legislature severely condemning its action in passing the bill. There seems to be on doubt, however, but that the bill �will be passed over the governor's veto. The Sunday law bill, now in the hands of the governor, will, in all probability, be approved. Those opposed to this bill claim that the classification of cities of 10,000 popiilation and over is nncon-stitutional, as it thus tliBcriminates against cities and towns of fewer inhabitants. Constitutional lawyers, however, say that the state has a right to make such classification and that the snjjreme court decisions bear out this claim.     _ A Shocking AeoUlent. Omaha, July 7.-A discharge of a gun was heard in Baumer's park, near the corner of Sixth and Dorcas streets, and soon after the lifele.ss body of an unknown boy was found lying under a tree; with the face and upper portion of the head blown entirely off, while mangled flesh and bones and brains were scattered in every direction about the place. A young man, giving his name as N. P. Adair, came into the station and told the officer that he had accidentally shot and killed a boy whom he did not know. He said that he and his half-brother, "W. R. Gooch, had baen hunting along the river and ^vere returning home through the park when they saw three small Doys sitting in the grass eating preen apples; that they stopped for a wliile to talk; that as they turned to leave, his gun, which he was holding across his arm, was accidently discharged, the contents striking the larger of the three boys fully in the face and blowing his head off. There is no clue to the identity of the dead boy nor to his companions. Americans Always Lead. Berlin, July 7.-The German Federal rifle meeting opened here. The pro-gramma opened with a grand procession to the town hall, starting from the Brandenburg gate. The line was arranged in order of nationality, the Americans � taking precedence of the other foreigners. A striking feature of the pageant was groups of riflemen representing the development and advancement of German shooting associations since the thirteenth century. The streets comprising the line of march were crowded with people, who cheered themselves hoarse in honor of the visitors and in admiration of the display. Herr Von Forckenbeck, mayor of Berlin, welcomed the visitors at the town hall. _ As They Began the Week. WESTERN ClulJS.   Won.Lo8t.P0. Min'polis. 37 20 .049 Mirkeo... Si 21 .018 Kan.

The Postal Subsidy and River and Harbor Bills TO PASS THE SENATE THIS WEEK. The Tnrltr Discussion to lie Interrupted and Delayed-Contested Election Gases lu the House-The Kociproclty Question -Other Capital Nuws. Washington, July 7.-The programme in the senate for the week includes the passage of the postal subaidy bills and, possibly, of the river and liar-bor bill, and the opening of the debate on the tariff Question. Senator Momll, the chairman of the committee on finance, has said ho will call up the tariff bill to-day, according to the announced intention, and that he is willing when it has been made the unfinished business of the senate to have it laid aside informally, that the postal subsidy bills, which were under discussion for two days last week, may be disposed of. These subsidy bills hav6 been debated at length, and they will be i)assed without much further discussion. Under the notice given by the finance committee, some time ago, the tariff bill would then be taken up, but Senator Frye, who is in charge of the river and harbor appropriation bill, gave notice last week that he would ask that that bill be taken up to-day, and Saturday Mr. Frye told a reporter of the United Press that he would insist upon having it considered. This means a fight for precedence between the two great measures, and the result is doubtfnl. As Mr. Fr3'e promises that the river and harbor bill will not consume more than two days of the senate's time, however, and as he is desirous of getting it into what may be a very extended conference, it is not improbable that the finance committee -will yield to him. Another measure which is likely to interfere with the continued discussion of the tariff bill is the sundry civil appropriation bill, which -will probably be reported to the senate to-day. It is not impossible that the conference report on the silver bill will get back into the senate before the end of the week, in which event the tariff bill will be shelved temporarily. Other conference reports may consume some of the senate's time, and so little progress in the tariff discussion is expected. A leading member of the finance committee ventured the opinion that there would be no general debate on the tariff from the Republican side of the chamber; that the debate would be confined to a discussion of the Indi-vidual schedules. The election committee of the house has decided to call up two of the contested election cases this week, but it will depend upon the wishes of the committee on rules as to the exact date for their consideration. The cases are those of Langston, Republican, against Ven-able. Democrat, from the Fourth district of Virginia, and Miller, Republican, against Elliott, Democrat, from the Seventh district of South Carolina. The election committee has decided in favor of the Republican contestants, and they will in all probability be seated. Mr. Langston is a mulatto and Mr. Miller, \yho has but a small percentage of negro blood in his veins, is socially a negro. 'The committee on rules will probably set apart a day or two for the.consider-ation and passage of the national bankruptcy bill, and the appropriation committee will report and endeavor to have considered, if time enough remains, the general deficiency bill. There is a probability that the conference report on the silver bill -will be submitted. Census Faddjlng in San Francisco. �WAsmNaTON, July 7.-Information has been received at the census office from a citizen of San Francisco that the returns of the enumerators in that city Avere all padded. This charge, following closely upon the dispatch of Supervisor Davis that one enumerator had been detected in increasing falsely his returns and that he had been arrested, seemed to require immediate action. A telegram was at once sent to Mr. Davis calling his attention to the charge, which emanated from a highly respectable source, and asking him to make a report. No further action will be taken by the census oflSce until Mr. Davis makes his report. If the charges of falsifying the records are sustained, a recount will be ordered.in the districts affected, and if necessary in the entire city. The city of Tacoma, Wash., is not satisfied with a recount in some of the districts, but thinks it is entitled to an entire new recount. In that case the city of Seattle inquires of the census bureau why it cannot have a recount. It is not probable that a recount will be ordered m either case.___ A^ Pension Provision. WashdjotOn, July 7.-Especial attention is called by Commissioner Raum.of the pension buriaau, to a pro-vision in the disability pension bill just enacted, which is of great interest to the large number of soldiers affected by the bill. The provision is to the effect that instead of executing their applications before a clerk of the court of record, as the law has heretofore required, they may verify them before a notary public, justice of the peace, or any officer authorized to administer oaths for general purposes, and who has an ofScial seal. If the verification is made before an officer who has no official seal the act requires that the signature of such officer and his official seal shall be certified by the clerk of a proper court of record. _____ Silver XeglBlatlon. Washinoton, July 7.-The conferreea on the silver bill expect to come to an agreement at their meeting to-day. They have practically come to an understanding under which the free coinage feature of the senate substitute and the buUion redemption feature of the house bill will be struck out, and that the certificates be issued tmder the new law shall be a legal tender.' The points of difference between them now are the jquestions whether the law shall go into 'effect immediately or thirty, .days after |ta pessago, and whether the'amount of �aver to be purchased each montUsliall ;)� 4,500,000 or 4,500,000 9va^ Tin; RECIPROCITY QUESTION. It  AVas   Under    Consideration    liefore 111 line's Letter Was Written. Washington, July 7.-The members of the Bonate finance committee show no great disposition to get together for the further discussion of the tariff question, and from this indication it seems more than likely that the real battle on the tariff will not begin for some time, perhaijs not until next week, perhaps not until the end of the coming week. The committee has yet to take under consideration the reciprocity question. It is the deau'e of several of the Republican members of the committee that this question be acted on in committee before it is brought before the senate. Mr. Hale, who introduced the amendment eulogizing Mr. Blaine's idea, told a reporter of the United Press some time ago that he did not expect the finance committee to act upon it, but that it would be taken up in the senate as an independent amendment and debated there. It now appears that not only did the members of the finance committee have the reciprocity question under discussion before Mr. Elaine's letter was sent to the senate, but they laid the matter informally before the president for his sanction. They then learned that it was the intention of the ijresident to send to con- fress a letter on the subject written by Ir. Blaine, and not -vrishing to anticipate this action they did nothing further in the matter. They can hardly be said to favor the Blaine prpposition, for the proposition that was laid before the president by them differed materially from that of the secretary of state. A member of the finance committee, who has been quoted as favoring Mr. Blaine's reciprocity scheme, said a few days ago: "We cannot agree to a reciprocity on sugar which would affect only one-sixth of the amount which we consume. That �would be simply to increase the profits of the producers of that sugar which is admitted free, with no reduction of cost to the consumer." The same Republican senator said that the senate would not accept any Teciprocity propositions which involved the admission of -wool free of duty, suggesting that there was "too much poH-tics in wool." The reciprocity question has taken very vague form as yet, but it is quite possible that in some shape it -will be adopted by the senate. An effort will be made during the coming week to bring the Republican members of the finance committee together to consider it.   _ A Legation Secretary Distinguishes Himself. Washington, July 7.-Count Maurice Sala, fij'st secretary to the French legation, at the peril of his life, stopped a runaway horse attached to a hansom cab on Madison Place, just in front of Secretary Blaine's residence, and prevented the animal from dashing into a crowd of people. He was knocked do\vn, but held on to the reins. When picked up and taken to a neighboring house the ph3-sicians found that the count's right leg was broken about midway between the knee and the thigh. Later he was removed to the legation buUding, and although suffering terribly last night no serious consequences are feared. A MILLIONAIRE'S MONEY. The Bequests Made hy the Late William. Gilbert of'fconnccticut. Norfolk, Conn., July 7.-The will of William Gilbert, the millionaire philanthropist of Winsted, gives $400,000 tc the Gilbert Home of the Friendless at Winsted, which was founded by Mr. Gilbert, and to which he gave $100,000 in his lifetime. The Gilbert school for colored girls, at" Winstead, La., received $40,000. The sum of $500,000 ia given for the establishment and maintenance of a public school of high order in Winchester (East Winsted); each of nineteen nieces and nephews receives $1,000. The town of Winchester is given $48,000 for the purpose of tunneling the mountains in order to obtain a better supply from the lakes. Should the town fail within five years to carry out this work, which -will cost $30,000 more than the sum above named, the $48,000 is to be added to the fund for the high school. The Congregational church at Northfield receives $13,000, and the Episcopal church at that place $3,000. Mr. Gilbert's stock in the Gilbert Clock company, valued at $30,000, was divided just before his death among two nephews and a niece, James Woodruff and B. P. Marsh of Winstad and Mrs, E. D. Whiting of Canada. The Nicaragua Canal. New York, July 7.-A. Q-. Menocal, chief engineer of the Nicaragua canal, just arrived  fi-om   Nicaragua, said: "Work is progressing rapidly.  Grey-town harbor is deep enough now to receive vessels of more than moderate tonnage, and very soon larger ones can go in easily. . All these reports of sickness and destitution in Nicaragua are untrue.   We have some five or six hundred men at work on the canal at Grey-town, and !#here-will be no cessation? during the summer.  The story tha,t' many people are starving and unable td' get work is a pure fabrication., We are' making haste slowly.  We do not propose to have another Panama canal fiasco.   Instead of spending millions for fine houses and conveniences,for officers and contractors and doing little on the. canal, we are beginning to devote our energies to the main thing, -viz.: digging the canal.  The canal' -will be in operar tion in five or seven years, and big ships Will be passing through it daily.' A Gift to Meuomonee Bau Claire,Wis., July 7.--The Mabel Tainter memorial bailding, which has cost $100,000, a gift to the people of Menomonee, erected by Capt. Tainter, the millionaire lumberman of that place, in memory of his daughter, was opened. The bmlding embraces an auditorium for the Unitarian society and for lectures, operas, and dramas, also a public library, reading room and club room. Miss Uavls' Return.
