By Associated Frew.) WASHINGTON, July House Committee on Elections the two Mississippi contested electii of Hill vs.. Cachings from the' tiiird district and, vs. Hooker, from the seventh. The de- cisions were in favor of the sitting i Democratic lugs and I Hooker. Brigadisr General Benjamin H. Grierson has been placed on the re- tired list. The conference report on the silver bill was then taken up, and Vest stated the reasons why he should vote against the report. A large majority of the Senate had voted, he said, for the free coinage of silver, but the con- ference report absolutely did away with all idea of free coinage, and was intended to continue the system under which sil ver has been persistently de- graded since 1873. He was anxious for the absolute parity between the two metals as money metals; he would like to see the time when sixteen ounces of silver would purchase an 'ounce of gold, and when an ounce of gold would con- tinue as at present to purchase sixteen ounces of silver, fie read, the closing clause of (he second section of the conference bill: It being the estab- lished policy of the United States to maintain the two metals on a parity with each other upon the present ratio, or such ratio as may be provided by and asked why that declaration had been inserted, why that stump sjxjech hail been inserted into the stomach of the bill. It had been put in, he said, for the purpose of saying to the Treasury Department that, until Oliver came to a parity with gold, it should pay out gold' and the public business should be conducted on a gold basis. He for one would never vote to maintain and continue that practice; he had never been a "silver man" for the purpose of booming sil- ver or increasing its price; he was against that and all other forms of subsidy. The conference bill might give an increased market for silver, but the principle for which the Senate voted, that the two metals should be on a parity, had been given away on that bill absolutely and completely. Coke expressed a concurrence in the conclusion reached by Vest. He could not support the conference bill. The Satiate conferees had not represented the will of the Senate, which had been declared for the free ami unlimited coinage of silver. On the contrary, they had assented to a bill which pro- vided definitely for a cessation of the further coinage of silver at all; that there was no compulsion on the Secre- tary of tbe Treasury to coin silver after July 1, 1891; that silver coinage was then left to the discretion of the Secretary, and such discretion was equal to stopping the coinage of silver. That was a fact well known and ad- mitted in debate. He was opposed to buying a single ounce of silver not to be cojned. He was opposed to the United States going into the warehouse business for silver or any other product. If silver is not to be coined, why should it be purchased? If the object of the bill was to advance the money power of silver, why should its coinage be stopped when the coinage alone con- ferred upon it the power of money? Two-thirds of the people of the United States, who were in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver, and an admitted majority in the Senate were shocked at every turn by the -Execu- tive and the Secretary of the Treasury. He proposed to vote against the con- ference bill because he preferred the Jaw as it now stood. Sherman defended and explained the conference report. The question had arisen in the conference commit- tee, he said, whether the two houses could be brought to an agreement on the two bills passed by, them respect- ively. In the first section of the con- ference bill the language of the first section of the House bill had been re- tained the amount ot silver to be purchased had been in- creased, much to his regret; it bad been fixed at a larger amount than the entire American product of silver. It has been made mandatory (not per- missive) on the Sectetary of the Treas- ury to buy four and a half million ounces of silver each month, which, at tbe rate of 29 an ounce, or six- teen to one, would amount to a yearly issue of about seventy millions in treasury notes. Tbe legal tender I clause in tbe Souse bill and the Sen- ate bill have been somewhat _diBerent and somewhat alike also, and the question had come up in the confer- ence w tether it would be right to de- prive citizens of the United States of the right to contract for payments in gold or anything else. It had there- fore been agreed unanimously that the Treasury notes to be issued for silver, like the silver dollar on which they are based, should be legal tender for all debts, public and private, unless where otherwise stipulated in the con- tract. That same clause was to be found in the Bland bill. Stewart Does the Senator from Ohio think there is any danger of the Secretary of the Treasury failing to buy of silver per if he Cart at lesH'ttiari'rtar, as provided in the Act? slightest The Senate cannot legislate on the idea that an officer of the Government will not execute the law. The suggestion has been made about the President and Secretary of the Treasury haunting the Capitol in regard to tho bill. I have not seen either of them, and 1 do not think a single conferee has seen either of them during the con- ference. The President of the United States will do what he thinks it his duty to do under his obligation; as to his seeking to influence me or my seeking to influence him, that is rather beyond the bounds of reason. At 3 o'clock the conference rejwrt on the silver bill went over till to- morrow, and eulogies on the late Rep- resentative Cox of New York were begun. The Senate amendments were con- curred in to the House bill for the admission of the State of Wyoming. On motion of Carey of Wyoming the Senate amendments were concurred in to the House bill for the disposal of abandoned military reservations in Wyoming.______________ Two Average Private By Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO, July L.

When Judge Young opened up his court levee at 10 o'clock this morning the cases of Frank Johnson King of and Jack Chapman, both accused of robbery on the premises of Mrs. Moore, were dismissed for want of corroborative evidence. James Cornier was arraigned before the Court for selling whisky to In- diiins an offense that seems to be becoming prevalently epidemic. Mike MoGinnis, for disturbing the peace, was assigned to the cooler for tea days. Joseph Edwards, for vagrancy, was given twenty days for meditation on the character of soil of Reno's streets. Jack Chapman paid, a penalty of fifteen days for indulging in an illicit caso of fisticuffs on the public thor- oughfare. James McDertnott, sentence with- held yesterday, was given eight days for disturbing the peace. Of the two men involved in the cut- ting attack at the Pyramid saloon last Saturday evening, Frank Reilly plead- ed guilty and was jugged for ten days. His partner, Meyers, pleaded not guilty, and the trial of his case was set for 2 o'clock this afternoon. A WILEY LAW-BREAKER On His Way to the Stone House at Carson. The Fourth of July and its expiring hilarity evolved the second case of fel- onous selling of liquor to Indians. On the Natal Day drunken Washoes were carousing around town, and a number of boozy bucks boasted to Constable Upson that they could get all the liquor they wanted. As a result the officer kept his eye peeled and caught James Conner in the act of secretly delivering a fat and bulky flask of the most villainous kind of rotgut to a squuw. His maneuvers were cunning and curious. He followed the squaw down First street near the cala- boose, and, stooping down, hid the flask in a clump of weeds near by. Passing back, he slipped his hand into a pocket of her dress and extracted his recompense for violating ihe law. The officers were keenly watching him and he was quickly calaboosed. Cor- nier claims that this is the first time he has ever dealt out liquor to Indians but the offlcers aver that he has been trading with them tq the extent of over a day, especially on such days as the Fourth. Moving to tbe Kant. It is calculated by residents in dif- ferent parts of Virginia that the firing of guns on the Fourth of July has had the effect of sliding the town from one- half to an inch to tbe East. The cal- culation is based upon doors which when shut, stand east and west. All such doors which were at all close to shut before the Fourth could not be closed after the Fourth. The settling of buildings in many places has also been noticed by the cracking and fall. ing of plaster; also, by the breaking of glass in several firm and cloeelv- fitted windows. Tbe London Oonetables Trying1 to Compromise. How a Bank Panic Wan Htopped. By Cable and Associated Press.] MoNTtviDKO, July is an abatement in the financial panic. In order to stop the rutjon the banks tbo Government issued decree making yesterday a national holiday. One million five hundred thousand dollars in goM is on its way hpre from Buenos Ayres, and it is hoped that upon its arrival the financial distress will be relieved. LONDON, July Times prints a dispatch, dated Buenos Ayres, with reference to the fitmucial crisis in Uruguay. It states that the Uru- guayan Legislature met in a special sesssion on Sunday to consider what course to pursue in view of the sus- pension of specie payment by the National Bank. A bill passed which will be promulgated at once, sanction- ing the suspension of specie payments for six months. This 1ms alarmed the merchants, and a deputation waited upon the Finance Minister. The Min- ister assured the merchants that the Government had no intention of re- sorting to a forced currency. The Government fears the people will not accept the paper currency, but desires to save the National Bank if possible by the present intermediate measure. If Una effort to assist the bank fails, it will probably be forced to liquidate. forfeited hand UrantN. By Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, July the House to-day Payfion explained the general provisions of the bill which proposes to forfeit and restore to the public do- main all public lands wherever sit- uated which have been granted in aid of the construction of railroads where the railroads have not been completed within the specified time. There have been, he said. 37 railroads aided by acts of Congress which had not been completed within the time fixed by Congress. Twelve of these road grants had been forfeited, comprising nearly acres. That left twenty-five roads which had :iot been acted upon, and nine which had been fully com- pleted. Sixteen roads were now un- completed, and the House substitute recommended the forfeiture of all lands lying opposite such portions of j roads as were not now constructed. The estimate was to the effect that the bill would restore acres to the public domaiu. A Wnrmer.

They have no organization, and it is not likely they will attempt to enforce their demands by a general strike. It is probable, however, that further isolated disturb- ances may occur. The constables who were dismissed for their connection with the troubles are petitioning the authorities for their reinstatement. Welcomed by the Governor. By Associated Press, j MILWAUKEE, July 8.

The famous St. Bernard dogs very trained. A traveler who visited some of the monasteries of the monks of St. Bernard a few years ago found the monks teaching their dogs from the earliest stages of puppy- hood. Not only is physical and men- tal training included in the teaching, but spiritual culture is bv no means neglected. At meal time the dogs sit in u, row, each with a tin dish before him containing his repast. Grace is said by one of tho monks the dogs sit motionless with bowed heads. Not one stirs until the "amen" is spoken. If a frisky puppy partakes of his meal before grace is over an older dog growls and gently tugs his ear.
