Y., June Fish yesterday afternoon fixed the time for the execution by electricity of Joseph Chapleau for the week beginning July 31. When Chapleau was convicted in January tbe axecutioa wae fixed for the third week u March, but a motion before the court of appeals for a new trial acted as a stay. The motion wae denied and the prisoner was brought here yesterday from Clinton prison, for re-sentence. Cbaplean killed Irwin Tabor, a neigh- bor, with a stake in January, He is said to be a cousin of Premier Chaplean of the Canadian government and a college grad- uate. He was formerly a soldier in the regular army and was stationed here. In all probability he will have the unenvia- ble notoriety of being the first man to be legally killed by electricity.

Poatafllce Appropriation BUI Passed Im the House. WagHntQTOS, June the senate yesterday the house silver bill was re- ferred to tbe committee on finance. The following bill was passed: House bill tor the relief ot Humboldt Bros, (directing the redemption of 10-40 bonds stolen from them in The senate silver bill was taken up and unanimous consent was given that after 3 o'clock on Friday next debate shall be limited to five minutes by any senator on any question. Mr Plumb's amendment, that no funds available for the payment of the public debt (including such as are kept for the redemption of the United States notes] shall be retained in the treasury in excess of tl was amended on motion of Mr. Han Is by adding to it the words "pro- vided that the gold and silver coin anc gold bullion in the treasury on which golc and silver certificates have been issued shall not be considered available for any purpose except the redemption of such certificates." In opposition to Mr. Plumb's amend meat Mr. Sherman said the effect of would be to leave only a working balanci of in the treasury. He regarded the amendment very faulty, first becaui it disturbed funds pledged by public faith and second because it would require th secretary of the treasury to carry on th operations of the government with working balance of Mr. Teller expressed his preference tba Mr. Plumb's measure should be with drawn and should be presented as an In dependent measure. Mr. Reagan questioned the use of retain ing of gold in the treasu: while there was a dearth of currency fel especially In the rural districts. H opinion was that a reserve of would be all sufficient; and he intended t offer an amendment carrying out tha idea. Mr. Teller said that the senator had pu the figure high enough. It had cost 146 calculating the interest at 4 pe cent, for eleven and one-half years. went on to say that he was not a fia money man. He believed that gold an silver were made (as Mr. Sherman hi said the other day) by the Almighty f< money; that they were twin, metals; an that the discarding of either the one or th other could not be afforded. After fn ther debate the bill went over until to-da The conference report on the bill for postofflce site in Washington was agreec to and after a secret session the senate at journed. ________ To Preserve Machinery Hall.

Train and Wrmk TEXARKAHA, Ark., June Express rain No. 1 of the St. Louis, Arkansas and exas railroad was wrecked by six masked obbers, two miles south of here, at 'clock Monday night. The train was itched at Haywoods switch by throwing te switch. The enjrine, tender and ex- rese cars left the trnck and an unknown ramp who was stealing a ride in front of he express car was instantly killed. The robbers attacked the .xpress cur, but the messenger repulsed them a volley rom his but hit none of the robbers: returned the fire with in- terest, and finally after threats of cremat- ng the messenger in the car he sur- rendered. The safe waa opened and the robbers se- :ured about Neolin, the express messenger, and the fireman and engineer were taken into- the woods by the robbers and tied to trees. They then shot the messenger in the hand, the arm and shot one of his tars off, to revenge themselves for bis resistance and threatened death to all three if they ever resisted another train robber. All this time the passengers were pre- vented from giving any assistance by one of the robbers who guarded them with a Winchester. After the robbers rode off it was an hour before the frightened passen- gers rescued the trainmen and gave the alarm. Two posses are now out hunting the robbers, but no trace of them has been fouud. The leader of the gang is supposed to be Rube Burrows. BIDS FOR NEW WAR VESSELS. IN THE HOUSE.

FOREIGN NEWS. THE ANGLO-OMMAN MUDDLE IN REGARD TO AFRICA. A Belief ExUts Be- tween tme Powers Haw Become BopcloMly rahUeam BIU Will Profcaoly Vessels for Hews. LOJTDON, June spite of the an- nouncement that the cabinet council which wi intended to be held yesterday had been postponed until after the Con- servative caucus at the Carlton club to- morrow, there was a meeting of the min- isters In the afternoon at which was dis- cussed the matter of Germany's claims in Africa. The hasty convening of this meet- ing, after Lord Salisbury's protracted in- terview with the German ambassador Monday, gives rise to the belief that the negotiations with Germany in regard to Africa have become hopelessly compli- cated. Everything now points to the proba- bility that to-morrow's Tory caucus will result iu the postponement of the govern- ment's publican compensation bill until next session and the pannage of an order by the minority iu tbe house of commons allowing the measure to be taken up at its present stage. Such action would amount to a virtual abandonment of the bill, out It would at the same time permit the gov eminent to recede gracefully from an un- tenable position, aud that is most desira- ble just now. Meanwhile the Radical, Liberal and Temperance opponents of the are keeping up their light with f. en greater vigor and persistency than they have yet shown. They are not to be lured into any trap and pay no attention to the indications that the government is weakening in its resolve to push the scheme. TO DEFEND AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. The colonial governments of Australia have all pitsaad the necessary acts provid ing the funds for the construction by the British government at several shine of w.-ir, to be devoted exclusively to the de- fense of the Australian colonies. It b also propobed to establish iutercolouia free trade throughout Australia. Whethei impi'riiil federation, as advocated hy Lord Koseliery, cornea or not, all siyns point to the certainty of an Australian union that will present 011 the opposite aide of tho world a copy the United States of America. The Australians are much dis- satisfied with the course of the British government in permitting other European tmtiotw to gain a foothold iu Poles! run, and with a fleet nt tht-ir command tbeir re- monstrances may take n vigorous form.
