By Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, Aug. the Sen- ate to-day Itlnir presented a memorial from the Women's National Industrial League for the suppression and pun- ishment of "armed assassins known as Pinkerton's detectives." Referred to the Judiciary Committee. Edmunds offered a concurrent reso- lution, which went over, that when Congress adjourns on the 19th of Sep- tember, it will be to.tnect on the 10th of November. The Tariff voa then taken up, the pending question being on the Finance Committee's amendment to paragraph 307, which taxes salt in bags and packages 12 cents per 100 and in bulk S cents, the amendment being to strike out the provision allowing drawbacks on salt used in exported meats. McPherson moved'to strike out the entire parauraph, the effect of which would be to place salt on the free list. Colquitt advocated McPherson's amendment, and read an extract from a speech made by Benton in the Sen- ate half a century ago against the salt tax. Hoar asked whether Benton had not made that speech about the same time he 'made another speech declaring Oregon and the -a hole of the Pacific coast territory as utterly worthless for agricultural purposes. Reagan remarked that Webster said substantially the same thing. McPherson's amendment was re- 15, nays 29, a strict party Vest made the point that to strike out the provision for drawbacks as proposed would discriminate against meats, as the salt used in preserving them could not be identified for reim- portation under the general provisions of the Act; that there was a special provision in the case of salt nsed in preserving fish. Vest argued in favor of free salt, the natural production of which was found in inexhaiiHtible quantities in every country in the woilil and in almost every State in the Union. He hnd seen a deposit of rock salt in Louisiana which would supply this world and five worlds like it for on illimitable time. Why, then, should English salt be taxed, when the dairymen and pork packers and beef packers would use it, no matter what duty was oa it. Cullom argued against striking out the provision paragraph. He had written to a pork packer in his S.ute, inquiring whether the general provis- ion (section 24) would allow a draw- back in that business, and the reply was it would not. The export trade, he said, demanded foreign salt. He had always been in favor of protection, even in the matter of salt, but this was not a question oi protection to the Ainei icon export meat j business. i After further discussion on the salt paragraph a vote was taken on the committee's amendment to strike out this provisiin. The proviso was not struck 15, nave 31. The Republican Senators who voted against the Finance Committee's amendment wore Allison, Cullom, Edmunds, Hawley, Ingalls, Jones of Nevada, Mitchell, Platt, Plumb, Sher- man, Teller, Washburn and Wilson of Iowa. The conference report on the joint resolution for the relief of destitution in Oklahoma was presented and agreed to. It directs the application of the unexpended balance for the relief of persons in the region overflowed hy the Mississippi to the relieving of citizens of Oklahoma rendered destitute by the unexampled drought there. A Iknnble Tragedy. By Associated Press.] SAN FBANciiWfcAug. Late this afternoon John 3VL Cheneweth, pro- prietor '6f the Peerless Saloon of this city, shot and killed Richard T. Car- tpll, well-known wholesale liquor dealer, and their committed suicide. Carroll had long- been prominent in business, politics and athletics. He was one of the original members of the Olympic Club. He leaves a wife and several children- It appears that Cbenoweth owed Carroll a large sum of money, and was summoned to Carroll's office to make arrangements for its payment. Chen- oweth disputed the amount claimed, and- while Carroll was going over the ledger with his bookkeeper Chenoweth stepped up behind and, putting a 45- caliber pistol to the of Carroll's head, blew his brains out. then stepped into a back room and shot himself through the head, dying instantly.

When the Why Club was started it was predicted by a few of the obstruc- tionists who consider it their bounden duty to oppose and opp'ess every un- dertaking not originated by themselves that it was to be a failure. Yet to-day it lives, and will continue to live, doing good to its fortunate members, and in its way rendering aid to the well-being of pociety. It is not avowedly or other-vise particularly interested in political quest!

MONSTER PIECE OF URAN1TE Itecently Taken Prom a state of Vinalhaven, Maine, claims to have produced the largest stone ever brough to light. The Bodwell Granite Com- pany recently qnanied a shaft of gran ite which is the largest piece of stom everquarriedanywhere.and, if erected will be the highest, largest and heavies piece of solid standing, or tha ever stood, so far as any record can be found. In height it considerably ex oeeds any of the Egyptian obelisks The tallest of these, which wasbrongb from Heliopolis to Alexandria by Em peror Constantino, and afterward taken to Rome, where it is still stand ing, is 105 feet 7 inches high, whil the Vinalhaven shaft is 115 feet long 10 feet cquare at the base, and weigh 850 tons. It is un'derstood, sayp Stone that the company quarried this inj monse monolith of their own account not having an order for anything o the kiud, and they suggest that would be a fitting contribution from Maine for the monument to be erecte in honor of General Grant.

Roberts of Bancroft, a small town north of here, tells a strange story of a desperate encounter with a mysteri- ous wild animal on the banks of the Des Moines river. On Saturday while Roberts was hunting for his calves, he attacked by a ferocious animal According to his account the animal bore a resemblenco of a panther, It sprang upon him from a bunch of weeds on' the edge of an adjoinfng slough, clearing ten feet at tho first bound, knocking him down and cover- ing his whole face with its enormous mouth, displaying at the same time n huge set of blunt, yellow teeth. He says tho animal was about six feet long, heavy in front, but slim through the flank. It was of a yellow-gray color, with black streaks overtheeyes. The neck was thick, and the head nearly as large as a cow's. He said the combat lasted nearly an hour, dur- ing which time he walked backward- in front of the ferocious beast for over eighty yards. He was knocked dowu everal times by the beast, but sue- ceded in freeing himself from its rasp time. Roberts called oudly for help, and was heard for over alf a uiile. Help came none too BOOH, or he was nearly exhausted. Tho an- nul escaped into tho woods. Powd-rly Talks Again. y Associated Press.] NEW YORK, Auff. 28. mukes the following statement, com- minting on Chief Arthur's letter: The main question has not been otiched upon by Arthur in anything have seen yet. A simple expression rom his lips in opposition to tho tak- ng of the places of the firemen by the ngineers who are Brotherhood men, would settle the matter, and that he has not done yet. Those who took the places of he engineers on the "Q" road had ilready abandoned the Knights before hey did that act of treachery. When hey went West from Reading, I warned the order and organized labor gainst them and did it publicly. A'hen ftargeant, for whom I have tl e greatest respect, wired me, asking if hese men represented me in any way, my answer was: They violate their ibligation as Knights in doing as is epresented; pay no attention to them. They represent no one but themselves, mid their actions will not be sustained iy the order of the Knights of Labor. Such men should be ostracised by all loiiest men.' Peace KstablUhed.
