The Oklahoma bill was again taken up, the pending question beinj; the amendment of Mr. Plumb to Include No Man's Land in the pro posed Territory. Mr. Vest made an argument la favor of the amendment. Mr. Platt said thai Mr. Vest's earaestness was due to his desire to see the Cherokee outlet lying between the Oklahoma country and No Man's Land opened to so'tleine it. Ho believed that the outlet would be o jined at the present session of Congress, but wiien that was done it would be time to talk of including it and No Mail's Land in Oklahoma.

Y., Feb. com- mission to test the electrical apparatus in State prisons will make their report to-d ay to Suporin tendon t of State Prisons Lathrop. The ronort will say that the questions to be solved were whether the apparatus would kill and also what num- ber of volts were necessary and what kind of wire should bo used. It was found that German silver wire proved to be the best and that about 900 volts was the maximum needed for horses and large aniimils, and about 400 volts the maximum for small animals. At Auburn a horse and cat were suc- cessfully experimenterl upon and efforts made by Dr. Fell, of Buffalo, by the aid of improved machinery, to resuscitate the animal failed entirely, thus proving conclusively that it was not a case of suspended animati'jn. The committee find that in their opinion each one of the apparatuses can be used successfully and that death by electricity can be accomplished within four seconds. There is in their opinion no cause for imagining that there will ever be any failure of results. Xot Tet TCeaely to Meet Snlllvan. NEW YORK. Feb. Barnett, John L.

A Disgraceftil Affair In the City of Hull. Protestant Evangelists Assaulted by a Mob of Catholics. and 8t< to a Six Persona Wounded, Seriously. OTTAWA, Ont., Feb. night the city of Hull, across the Ottawa river from here, was the scene of one of the most disgraceful riots ever chronicled in Canada, A small band of Protestant evangelists from Ottawa were attacked by a howling mob of nearly a thousand French-Canadians who were armed with revolvers, shotguns, sticks and stones. Six. persons were seri- ously. It appears that the evangelists, some twenty in number, including four or five ladies, some time ago announced that they would hold evangelical servi- ces in Hull, which is inhabited almost entirely by French Roman Catholics. They were warned that serious trouble woule result, but in spite of the warning visited that city last evening and began religious services in a small mission hall. In another portion of the city a crowd of the roughest characters in the city congregated and marched through the streets, armed with revolvers, shotguns and all kinds of missiles. The crowd in- creased in numbers with great rapidity until they reached the street in front of the mission hall, where over a thou- sand of the infuriated crowd hung about the building, swearing vengeance on the little band inside. The police were powerless to disperse the mob. The mayor and two aldermen who tried to address the crowd were stoned and se- verely injured. The appearance of the evangelists a1 a window was the signal for a shower o1 stones. Doors and windows were demol- ished and the howling mob rushed in, firing their revolvers as they went. Sis of the evangelists, including two ladies, were seriously, if not fatally injured The remainder escaped through'a back window aad beat a hasty retreat to Ot- tawa. The outrage has created tremendous excitement here and tho prompt action of the police alone prevented an armed force of Protestant citizens of this city from wreaking vengeance on the French- Canadians. The matter will be brought up in Par- liament to-day. The militia have orders to turn out at a moment's notice to pre- vent further trouble. WORKED FOB BOODLJ2. A DELICATE QUESTION. ronim C. A. K.

Secretary TVindom has been called upon to decide a very delicate question and his decision, when rendered, will be of great interest to musicians, for it will defi.no the line of demarcation as to where a musician ends and an artist begins. The collector at New York desires to be informed whether he can admit the members ol the famous Strauss orchestra, of Vienna, to this country without violating the Alien Contract Labor law. This orchestra is booked for a six month's concert tour in this country, commending in May next, and Mr. Strauss has asked if his orchestra can be permitted to do so. The members, i is conceded, are under contract to re- ceive a stipulated sum each week. Un der the Contract Labor law only profes- sional actors ana artists can here under contract.

He had a letter from Mr. Wood to the effect that he was bard at work in Washington on a gun contract and requesting him to jet and give Mrs. Wood of it Shortly after this incident Mrs. Wood and her son called at his house and pre- sented a letter of similar character from Wood, in which was enclosed a letter to his wife.

The doctor advised him to ad- vance the money, stating that he woulA be responsible for the amount. Witness told of his visit to the Com- mercial-Gazette office on the night that Mr. Halstead became convinced that the paper was a forgery. Some days after paying the first amount of money to Mrs. Wood, the lady called at his house and told his wife to have him call at her house, as she wanted to see him on a very important matter. He supposed that this would be another request for njoney and he again consulted Dr. Gray- don as to what was tho best thing to do. Dr. Graydon advised him to see Mrs. Wood and if she did not want too much money to supply it, and gave him This money he gave to Mrs. Wood and told her not to ask him for more. He did not pay her any more until after Wood was ariested, when he gave her ______________ DISAPPOINTED BOOMERS Would-be Settlers on me Sioux Reserva- tion Back by PIKKRE, S.
