Natloiukl Convention IB A Giktherlnc of Prominent Colored Mm. CHICAGO, Jan. The national con- Ten tion of Afro- American leagues was called to order in the Madison street theater yesterday morning by T. Thomaa Fortune, of New York. Delegates were present from twenty-one States and the District of Columbia. About 200 men were present. In the convention are Democrats and Republicans, but the Re- publicans are very much in the majority. Mr. Fortune was elected temporary chairman, and F. L. Harnat, of Chicago, editor of the Chicago Conservator, and Harry C. Smith, of Cleveland, editor of the Cleveland Gazette, temporary secre- taries. A committee on credentials was appointed and the convention took a re- cess. The convention reconvened in Quinn chapel on Fourth avenue. The princi- pal business transacted was the deliv- ery of an address by Mr. Fortune in which he named as reasons the organization of the Afro-American League, the almost universal suppres- sion of the colored ballot in tho South; the universal and lamentable reign of lynch and mob law, of which colored men are the victims, in the South: tho unequal distribution of the school funds; the odious and demoralizing chain gang penitentiary system of the South; tho tyranny of the common carriers in the South, who will not permit colored and white people to ride in the same cars. and the discrimination practiced by those who conduct places of public amusement. A committee on permanent officers was appointed and an adjournment until this morning was taken.

Dependent Pension Bill Reported to Jhe Provisions. Postponement of Expoeltlou KoMlaa Ex. tradition Treaty. WASHINGTON-, Jan. Naval Committee of the House devoted two hours to hearing Secretary Tracy give his ideas regarding the f ur- therlncrease of the nary and the policy to be pursued by the department on naval matters. In regard to increasing the naval establishment, the secretary thought the time had come for building fighting vessels. Our ability to con- struct them had been satisfactorily dem- onstrated and he urged the committee to endeavor to enact legislation for the building of them. The work should commence at once, ana the vessels should be as large as the size of our har- bors would permit. While the secretary did not instance any particular kind of vessel that he wanted constructed, he introduced some designs indicating a general type of battleship. This ship is novel in regard to the distribution of its battery. All the guns can be used at once; the armor is heavy and the speed is placed at sev- enteen knots per hour. Senator Davis yesterday reported to the Senate the bill introduced by him List month with amendments. As amended it is the Dependent Pension bill unanimously agreed to by the Com- mittee on Pensions. It provides for the pensioning at twelve dollars a month of all persons who served three months or more in the militarv or naval service and were honorably discharged and are now dependent and through their own vicious habits, for labor. Provision is made also for pen- sioning- the widow and children, or de- pendent father or mother, of a dead sol- dier or sailor who served three months honorably. Attorneys may make a max- imum ctcarge of ten dollars for prosecut- ing any claim under this act. The Senate Committee on the Quadri- centennial is still waiting for the New York delegation to hand in a printed copy of its argument, and pending the receipt of this no meeting of the com- mittee has been called. One of the ques- tions which the committee will consider is the postponement of the Exposition until 1805 This proposition has been canvassed. The belief is expressed by many that Congress will not be able to agree on a location until it is too late, and by some it is predicted that there will be no legislation: In the secret session of the Senate "Wednesday the Kussian extradition treaty was under consideration. During the discussion a great deal of opposition to the clause providing for the extradi- tion of political criminals developed, and after a short debate the Senate re- committed the treaty Committee on Foreign Relations. A Financial Sensation. Tor.oM-o, Ont., Jan. 10 circles were greatly oxcited here yester- day by a rumor that several clerks in one of the banks had embezzled S100.000.

Will Not Pnrtld- of YOEK, Jan. Philadelphia newspaper published a statement re- cently that the so-called free traders were worried because Mr. Blaine had demolished Mr. Gladstone in their joint discussion of the tariff question in the North American Review. It was inti- mated that ex-President Cleveland was deeply interested in the matter. Con- gressman Mills was requested by editor Bryce, of the Review, to continue the discussion. According to the report he declined until he received a message from Mr. Cleveland urging him to do so. Mr. Cleveland was aeen at his residence by a reporter and asked if it was true that he had taken a hand in the discus- sion and requested Mr. Mills to write an answer to Mr. Blaine. "I have had no communication with Mr. Mills said Mr. Cleveland, "and I have not asked him to write any thing. I hope the report that he is pre- paring an article on the subject of the tariff is true, however. If Mr. Bryce had requested me to write to Mr. Mills to continue the discussion begun in the Review, I should have done so with pleasure." you c mtemplate contributing to the discussion was asked. "No, 1 don't know that I was the reply. "I read what Mr, Gladstone and Mr. Blaine had to say, with much in- terest, but I do not think I shall write anything on the subject myself, at least not for the present. It is a matter that requires a great deal of study and time, and just now I have very little leisure outside of my business." VIEWED WITH ALARM. Increase of Demanded br Ameri- can Manufacturers Cannes Consternation Among Europeans. LOXDOX, Jan. The testimony be- fore the Congressional Committee of Ways and Means is followed with great interest by European manufacturers. A slight increase of the tariff on many lines of goods means a cessation of ex- portation, and the almost unanimous recommendation of the witnesses that the duty should be made higher fills continental jobbers and manufacturers with consternation. They jay, and probably with truth, that owing to the strict interpretation of the laws by the United States consuls in Europe and the endless squabble about invoices, their business has been greatly damaged and any additional burden placed upon it would prove ruinous to them. English exporters are more philosophi- cal, having generally larger capital and growing outlets for their goods in the colonies, but the tin plate workers are somewhat over the reported in Dakgta and, the possibility of losing their martelT Bohemian makers of buttons and other small wares, and German manufacturers of ladies' wraps and cheap optical goods hive a dim idea that the high tariffs imposed by the United States are adopted partially as a measure of ret- ribution for the exclusion of some American food products from those countries, and have proposed to their governments a relaxation of such laws. Reforms Advocated by the Knteer. BERLIN, Jan. The Prussian Diet opened yesterday. The Emperor's speech was devoted chiefly to proposed meas- ures of internal reform, including an in- come tax, the acquisition of private rail- ways by the State and the establishment of leasehold estates for the benefit of small farmers. The Emperor ex- presses the hope that the understanding arrived at in regard to the miners' hours and wages will result in lasting peace between operatives and employes.

The Senate met and, after granting Mr. Washbum Indefinite leave of absence on account of sickness, re- cessed until time for the joint Senatorial con- vention, atter which the Senate adjourned. The first business to claim attention was the Senate joint resolution by Mr. Mori- son calling on Congress to enact suitable legis- lation and to make suitable appropriations for the improvement of the ports and the entries to the great lakes, especially the entrance w Lake Huron. The resolution, which recites the danger to seamen and passengers because of the failure to make improvements, was adopted by an unanimous vote. When Mr Green's resolution reciting the suppression n- the colored vote in the South indorsing Senator Sherman's bill for the con- trol of Congressional elections by Federal au- thorities, which had been laid over under tho rules, came up. Mr. Beose offered an amend- ment which changed the entire substance In- stead of favoring the Federal Election bill, the resolution denounced the measure. The amend- ment was adopted under the previous question, which cut off all debate, not even permitting of an explanation by the author. Promptly at the hour of noon the sergeant-at-arms of the Senate appeared at the bar of the House and announced the presence of the Senators, who were ready to participate In the joint convention for the pur- pose of declaring the result ot the ballot for Senator in separate houses Tho results show- ing that Calvin S. Brice had received a majority in both the Senate and House, he was by Lieu- tenant Governor Lampson declared elected to represent Ohio in the United States Senate for the term of six years from March 4, 1891. Mr. Brice spoke as follows- "Goveruor Lampson, Mr. Speaker and Gen- tlemen of the General Assembly: "While an extended speech from me would not be appreciated, I can not refrain from ac- knowledging your kindness in asking me to come before you, as well as to acknowledge to you and through you to the people that you rep- resent my sense of deep obligat.on, and not only that, but my deep sense of duty to the people of Ohio whom I am to have the honor to represent in the Senate of the United States during the next six years. I pledge you, gentlemen, and through you those you represent, that to the best of my power and ability I shall transmit unstained, as it has come down through a long line of Senators, the honor you have seen lit to bestow upon me." An informal reception followed, Senator-elect and Mrs. Brice. General A. V. Rice and Mrs. Rice and General Thomas Ewing being present.

Crushed la an Elevator Shaft. 0., Jail. Au accident which resulted in serious injuries to Charles Glcick occurred at the N. Y.. P. A. O. railway offices on Euclid avenue Wednesday. Gleick, who is employed in Lange's cigar store on the first floor of the building, took the elevator to go to one of the upper floors. When part way up he got caught between the car and the -wall and so tightly was he wedged in that the car stopped. The efforts of the elevator man to estricato him proved futile and an ambulance was called. The ambulance men worked at him for thirty minutes and at last had to cut part of the framework of the car away. Gleick's limbs were badly crushed just above the knees.

He read extracts front the message of the President announcing change of government in Brazil and spoke of the message as a listless languid resignation to (be course of affairs there, and characterized the position of the Administration toward new republic of Brazil as one of strict neutrali- ty and supreme indifference Mr Turpie contrasted the present delay the promptness of President Grant in recogniz- ing France In 1870. He hoped that the recogni- tion ot Brazil would come soon enough to be of value and of real significance. The resolution went over without aation. The Senate then passed a number of bills, among them the following: Relating to home- stfad entry in Indian Territory settling :i claim of Missouri for money paid to uulitij sinca Apnl, 1382; for bridging the Missouri river with.- In one mile of the mouth of tie Kansas river appropriating for a liall of records In Washington The Senate went into secret ses- sion aud then adjourned.
