A Committee of Servian Fro- -greaaioniste Poisoned. ConsreHNtonal By Associated Press.) WASHINGTON, Aug. presid- ing olliccr laid before the Senate the resolution submitted yesterday by Quay for a chanue of the rules so as to have a vote on the tariff bill taken on the 30th of Auguat and to postpone till next session, all other legislative business, except several classes of bills as specified therein. Hoar said he desired to address the Senate on the subject, but would prefer to do so to-morrow. The resolution went over till to-morrow. The resolution offered yesterday by Plumb, instructing the Committee on Rules to issue an order that will pro- vent the sale of drinking spirits or malt liquors in the Senate wing of the Capitol, uaa taken up, and after some discussion, went over till to-morrow. The Senate bill grunting the right of way through certain lands of the United States in Utah, and the House bill to authorise the Secretary of the Interior to procure and submit to Con- gress, proposals for the sale to the United Slates, of the western part of the Crow Reservation in Montana, were taken up, amended and passed. The tariff bill was then taken up, the pending question being on Plumb's amendment reducing the duty on tin plate from 2 2-10 cents to 1 cent per pound and allowing a bounty of one cent per pound on American tin plate. After a dirtcusnion it was withdrawn, with the privilege ol reintroduction. McPherson offered an amendment, the effect of which would be to place tin plate on the free list. Rejected. Spooner offered an amendment pro- viding that after the 1st of October, 18915, tin plate, lighter in weight than 03 pounds per hrndred pquare feet, shall be admitted free unless it shall appear to the President that the acgre- gate quantity of such plates produced in the United States during any of the five years preceding, had equaled one third of the quantity imported and entered for consumption in that year. CHOUSE. Thomas of Wisconsin moved to lay upon the table the motion made some days ago by Hayes of Iowa to recon- sider the motion by which the House passed the McKay bill. Agreed to, yeas 92, nays 79. This finally passed the bill. The Sneaker stated that the unfin- ished business in the morning hour was a bill to amend the alien land law. Carter of Montana explained that the bill had in view the repeal of the alijn land law in so far as that law re- ferred to the ownership of mines in the Territories. Speaker Heed has appointed Lewis of Mississippi on the committee of in- vestigation into the charges against Pension Commissioner Raum. The investigation begins to-morrow. The Commit tee on Commerce to-day reported favorable to the House the Senate bill to provide for the inspec- tion of live cattle and beef products in- tended for export to foreign countries.

Subse- quently the members of the commit- tee were taken ill and their symptoms showed they were suffering from arsenical poisoning. It is supposed that arsenic was placed in their food intentionally, with the object of kill- ing those who partook of it, and that the crime was committed by the po- litical opixments of the progressionists.

Itooent Terrtbln I.OSB of Ken- tucky WMnky. Refering to the recent loss by fire of barrels of "Old Bourbon" the Salt Lake Tribune pays: "When a cyclone struck Louisville some months ago the proud people of that city gave the world notice that, while the calamity was a crushing one, they would take care of their own poor, and did not need outside help. It remains to be seen whether that brave and independent spirit will still be pre- served under the calamity of losing barrels of first-class Kentucky whisky. There mav not lie an open complaint, but if there is none it will be a consolation to their minds of those Louisvillians, that tears of sympathy were shed for them yesterday wherever the telegraph heralded their loss. ravages of a cvelone can be repaired. Rent and shipwrecked buildings can be restored, or the ground can be cleared off and new structures erected; but when barrels of Kentucky whisky all go in a conflagration that is an utter There are no ruins left even to tell of property values consumed and bright hopes wrecked forever, no save in the hearts of the losers.

THE NEW YOWl CENTRAL STRIKE No Present Indications of a Settlement A Heavy dale Reported at Val- paraiso Bay. The Central Strike. By Associated Press 1 NEW YORK, Aug. and Hayes, of tbe Knights of Labor, ar- rived here this morning.. Sargent of the Federated Labor, Wilkinson of the Trainmen's Association, Howard of the Railway Conductors and Sweeney of the Switchmen's Association, are also here. Up to 11 o'clock no meet- ing of the leaders had been held. Webb of the New York Central this morning said: "For the past few days I have been making' airange- unenta to get a new force of firemen in case those on the road go out, and liave succeeded BO far that any delay from that cause will orly be temporary. Jl necessary I will stop every particle of freight traffic, close up every yard and keep them closed until I have obtained a sufficient number of new firemen to resume the freight traffic. This, I think, I can accomplish within 48 hours, as I have a long list of men who will come at the wages we will pay. My road will expend to win, and in my action I am backed up by the stockholders." It seems to be the general opinion that Webb's action in refusing to arbi- trate will result in the train conduc- tors, firemen and switchmen being called out and a prodigious strike de- clared this afternoon. ALBANY, Aug. has been no trouble here up to noon, and none is anticipated. The yard-master at Went Albany said this morning that he had thirty-five crews to man the freight trains. BUFFALO, Aug. has been received here that the General Manager of the New York Central has sent a dispatch to Superintendent Bur- rows to reinstate the striking switch- men. Burrows was closeted in his private office and positively refused to be seen or to confirm or deny the statement. It is, however, believed to be a fact that such a dispatch was received. The situation in connection withjthe Central strike remains unchanged. All eyes are turned to New York, where it is expected Powderly, Sar- gent, Howard and others will to-day reach some conclusion as to the best course to follow. Fatal Accident. By Associated Press.] BOSTON, Aug. serious acci- dent happened to the Cape Cod Woods Holl train on the old colony at Quincy this afternoon. It is known that three are killed, two women and a man, and it is believed 20 or 30 are injured. The nature of the accident is not known. One report is that the train jumped the track. is now learned that the first passenger coach fell on the engine, the latter having toppled over, and the engine set fire to the train. The 6reman was instantly killed and the engineer fatally injured. As far as can be learned eight passengers were killed and about twenty injured. Latter are, a greater part, injured by the escaping having been frightfully scalded. The Quincy fire- department was called to the scene as quickly as possible and shortly after- ward the fire was extinguished. The dead and injured w re removed from the scene, the latter being taken into private houses and to the Quincy hos- pital. immediate Action Expected. By Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, Aug. Secretaries Splutdingand Nettleton of the Treasury Department had a con- ference with tbe President this after- noon regarding the financial situation, and it is not at all uulikely that action will be taken this afternoon for the relief of tbe money market.

By Associated Press. 1 SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19. A sailor who shipped on the American bark Portland Lloyds at Valparaiso, Chili, has written his mother in this city an account of a terrible storm in Valpa- raiso Bay. The following are extracts from the letter: It is is blowing a gale. The waves are breaking over the city, and the shipping is in great danger. July A Nova Scotia ship, an English bark and a steamboat went down last night. The bark went ashore near the Consulate, and the Nova Scotia ship is on the rocks, fast Ruing to pieces." The letter was evidently sent on- board a mail steamer bound north be- fore the storm had abated. Since then no advices have been received as to wliether the, Portland Lloyds and other vessels weathered the gale or not. _ _ To-Oay's flacett. By Associated Press J SARATOGA, Aug. 19.
