Subsequently he drew up in his own handwriting his ref- iM-wi's report dated June All the papers were then given to Judge Monell. On June Moiu-ll brought him his oath of office, the repoit and proposed decree and asked itness to present the papers to Book- staver He did not have the summons, com- plaint, affidavit of service, affidavit of regu- larity, or the order of reference.

Witness then saw Wright anil utter Retting his consent to appear, bor- rowed Wright's eraser and erased the name of AiiKiist Mnnell from the complaint. He asked Wright for a summons, and tearing the old summons from the complaint, he placed a new one on which he got from Wright. Ho had then drawn up the affidavit of regularity in Wright's presence and Wright had sworn to the affidavit. In answer to a question witness said not more twenty minutes had elapsed from tbe sum mnns TV-U.S served until it was sworn to by Wright. Witness then turned all the pa- pers over to Bookstaver who said: "This or- der of reference is made on motion of Am- briwH Monell; draw up a new order, leaving a lihiuk for the referee's name." Meeks had pme out ond prepared a new order. The old one was dated June 10. When shown this new order of reference witness, said the words preceding June, as well as Meela' name and the judge's signature were not ill his handwriting. He took all the pa- prs baolc to Judge Bookstaver on July 3 and in MiH-ks" presence the judge had signed the i Iccrec. lie did not consider the papers court records in making the changes as they had been Hied. He understood he was acting un- der tho ilm-ehoii and order of the court. He had not tried to hide his handwriting. Adjourned. Tents for the Homeless.

Mr. VeBt It as Unconstitutional Itn I'awage Would Bring Into Contioiipt With Alllion Triutu and I lie Tariff Hnv Nothing In Common. WASHINGTON, March senate de voted the greater part of the day yesterday to discussing Senator Sherman's anti-trus1 bill. After petitions had been presented, Mr Sherman called up the bill to doclare unlaw- ful trusts and combinations In restraint of trade and production. Mr. Rhnrman explained the provisions of the bill. He said the bill did not interfere with any lawful business, but dealt only with such combinations as were unauthorized by any law, ancient or modern, and whose sole object was to control prices and establish monopolies winch were injurious to the pub- lic and should be restrained by the courts. He referred to decisions of state courts of Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and New York in the cases of the Standard Oil company, tho Diamond Match company and sugar trust, declaring such trusts null and void and against public policy. The purpose of tho ponding bill was to em- power the courts of United States to deal with those combiiml ions, affecting not only several states, but the entire world. All these great trusts nrnra modelled on the same plan and involved the same principle. They were all combinations of corporations and ndividuals of many states forming a league and covenant under control of trustees. He thought the only defect of the bill was Its moderation. Mr, Ingalk gave notice of an amendment, limed against dealing in "futures" or "op- which wns read nnd ordered printed. On motion ot Mr. Sherman it wns ordered that the substitute report from the finance should be treated as the original of the bill and the amendments offered treated as amendments in the first and sec- ind degree. Mr. Vest spoke on the legal questions in- volved and mid that while he was in entire sympathy with Mr. Sherman as to the enor- nity of the abuses that had grown out of the rusts and combinations, he could not. even n the face of popular indignation against this great evil, violate his oath to support the and violate all the training which had come to him as a lawyer, educat- ed and trained in his profession. For coii- Rt-ess to pass a law that, would be thrown out of the supreme court, would be to subject itself to ridicule, anil to the confession that it was powerless to enact laws that would give tho people relief. He argued against the constitutionality of the original bill and the substitute, and declared that it was his liolief that the supreme court would imme- diately throw it outof court As to the clause of the constitution giving congress jurisdiction over foreign commerce, the first question which presented itself was: What is foreign commerce? The supremo court Imd held that that clause applied to artic-lf brought from a foreign country lie- fore they had left the hands of the importer. As to the i-lflu.se affecting commerce between the states, that referred to goods in transit, not meiely goods that had been in transit from one state to another. From this point the debate drifted into a discussion of the effect of high tariff duties upon the existence of trusts, Mr. Vest main- taining the close connection between trusts and high duties. Mr. Hiscock, while sympathizing with the ibjects of the bill, thought it absolutely in- effectual to remedy the evil. The states bad jurisdiction of the subject, and to them it Vie left. Mr. Blair renewed liis motion to reconsider the vote of Tour-day by which the educa- tional bill was reported, and on this Mr. Ingalls entered a motion to lay that motion on the table. Mr. Reagan then spoke in support of his amendment to the anti-trust bill, to give the general government control when foreign commerce was atrected, leaving to the states jurisdiction In cases in cases where local trade and manufactures was Mr. Allison replied to Mr. Vest's argument as to the connection between high duties and trusts, taking the ground that all the great combinations were practically outside of the tariff and independent of it; while on the other hand there were powerful trusts or :ombinations for raising the price of beef or owering the price of cattle, and there was ;he Standard Oil company, a great combina- tion, and the oatmen I trust and tho whisky irust, all of which hod nothing to do with tariff duties. Congress, he maintained, could not correct the evils of trusts by mod- fying tariff rates. Mr. Coke offered a substitute for the bill, and Mr. George offered an amendment to it. The hill then went over until Monday, when t is to come up as unfinished business. A vote on Mr. Ingalls' motion to table Mr. Blair's motion of reconsideration of the edu- cational bill cannot be taken before Mauday. After a brief secret session the senate ad- ourned until to-day. IS THE BOUSE. WASHINGTON, March 32. Immediately after the reading of the journal yesterday the houbo went into committee of the whole 3n the pension appropriation bill, which was debated during the greater part of the day, Mr. Cheadle of Indiana made a longspeech n favor of a service pension. He estimated ;hat the total expen-e of a service pension )ill would be about and the addi- ional expense, should the bill become a law, or the next fiscal year would not exceed Ml, Mr. Clements of Georgia wondered after waring the speeches of Republicans, why Commissioner Tanner had been forced to ign. He asked hether the amount named n the bill would be sufficient. Mr. Morrow thought that it would, if no urther pension laws were passed. Mr. Clements said he would not oppose the pending bill but his objection to it was that t appropriated less money than the admiuis- ration knew would be needed to pay pen- ions for the next year. Mr. Spinola of New York said the Demo- cratic party had forced the pension rolls rom to annually, and yet Republicans went on the stump and said they were the friends of the men who saved the Union. Mr. Enloe of Tennessee urged the necessity f thoroughly investigating the workings of ae pension bureau. Mr. Breckenridge of Kentucky favored a liberal pension system, but opposed the abuse f that system and making the pension urean a great political machine. Mr. Giosvenor of Ohio accused the Demo- ratic minority of suddenly becoming patri- Some or Mine Ownm Are Other Fwvtca LONDON, March predicted at outset of the pi-eat colliers' strike the men have won their flght and they will generally resume work on Monday. Although the strikers have virtually obtained the conces- sions they contended for there are a few hitches in the final settlement, owing to the still existent, though impotent obduracy of some of the masters, and them points will have to be met before the whole number of men who went out will return to their duties. The immediate prospect of a com- plete cessation of hostilities between the masters and the men and the consequent re- sumption of the business of the vast number of mills, factories and other interests stopped for want of fuel is everywhere hailed with AN UNINTRHE8TINO DEBATE. joy. The debate in the house of lords last night on Lord Salisbury's motion to adopt the re- port of the Parnell commission was unex- pectedly tame affair. Acting in accordance with Mr. Gladstone's decision that Lib- erals would better not move an amendment to tho motion, most of the Liberal peers ab- stained from taking part in the discussion in jrder to accentuate their disgust with the government's attempt to construe a verdict of not guilty into one of conviction. SYMPATHY FOB FARIUCIDEH. Iii spite of the plain guilt of tbe brothers, Richard and George Davien, who were con- demned to death at Crewe yesterday for the nurder of their father, Richard Davtes, on :he highway near Hough on Jan 2r> last, they mve enlisted the sympathy of a large num- of poi-sous, and already an effort is being nade to save their necks by securing a oom- mitntlon of their sentence to Imprisonment for life at least. The murder was a most leliberate and brutal one, the victim having ven covered were found on the head the motive for crime which was unerringly traced to the irisonera, was so slight as to have furnished niufllcient justification for killing a vagrant log: yet among the number of those appeal- ng against the execution of the parricides i re many professed believers in the doctrine if a life for a life.

The emperor escorted rincess Frederick Charles into the banquet mil and the Prince of Wales gave bis arm to the empress. Among those present were the new chancellor, Gen. Caprivi, Count von Moltke and Count von Waldorsee. The em- peror proposed a toast to the Prince of Wales, piprassing himself as pleased to see a representative of the British army in the uniform of a regiment named after Blucher, who, with the Duke Wellington, had mingled German and British blood on the field of battle. He hoped that their fleets and their armies would still continue to co- operate in tho cause of peace. The 1'rince of Wales responded In German, expressing his thanks, and drank to the health of the em- peror and the welfare of the empire. Can Care for Her Own Needy, WILKEK-BARRE, Pa., March O. B. Sutton of this city is in receipt of in- numerable letters from the cities of this state, New York, New Jersey and other .states, asking if any help is needed in reliev- ing the distress of tbe mining population. Home of the most generous offers of mrsist- ance have been received, but to all he an- swers that no such help is needed. Wilkes- Barre is an exceptionally rich city nnd her people are very generous in all such cases, BO she is abundantly able to care of her own poor. The mayor is not pleased that any idea to the contrary should get abroad, but highly appreciates the benevolent spirit prompts the kind offers. MlneiV Rodlea Found.

Tim fact of greatest signillcance, repeatedly noted here, has been the slackening in demand for finished and some concessions are now made in eastern on rails, for billets there are few sellers and no buyers, and the bar mills are running short of orders.

"In dry goods a prevailing feature is the extreme caution of buyers, except from the Nouth, which doen a larger business than ever, but the state of trade on the wh.ilo is not encouraging. Another important failure comes at a time when banks had begun to commercial paper more freely. Im- porters are rushing in goods in anticipation of a change of tariff, but In dress goods it is between seasons, in men's woolens trade is limited, and many mills are not supplied with orders; and in cottons, while sales are fair in volume, tbe present high price of material affects Cotton has been sternly, ro- ceipte falling and Hfl.OWl below last year's for tbe same week. Wool is dull and weaker, the very best Ohio fleece com- manding only S8 to cents at Boston and delaines being neglected. Trade in bread- stuffs has been principally speculative, with advances of a on wheat, and a half a cent on corn and oats, pork also advancing half a dollar. CoBee is weaker on large estimates of yield, and sugar is dull, with no activity in refined, the Sprockets supply still underselling that of the trust. MONKY MARKET EASIKH. "The monetary situation has changed for the better more distinctly than any other, the treasury having found means to pay out during the week more thnn it bos taken in. Foreign exchange has risen cent because of scarcity of commercial hills but exports for three weeks from this port show an increase of f over inst year, or 8 per cent., while the increase in is nearly or per cent. "The stock market is afflicted with deadly dulness, and the average price of stocks, ex- elusive of the 'industrial' lot, has declined about SO per share. To all appearances the outside public now uses the market only tor the purpose of selling when there is any rally, and the impression is growing tlmt there must be decided decline before much i activity will be seen.
