It Will Probably be Referred to the Committee on Coinage, Weights and Measures. Washington, June is.—In strong probability the difficulty arising over the position in which the republicans in the house find themselves in consequence of the passage of the free coinage silver bill by the senate will be overcome for the present by the reference of the measure to the coinage, weights and measures committee. Indeed, it was said the speaker had. late this evening, ordered that the bill be referred to the committee. Representative Conger, chairman of the coinage committee, had several interviews with Reed during the day and. supported by other members of the house, urged tim under the rules the only proper thing for tho speaker to do was to make the reference mentioned. Conger at eleven o’clock to-night said he did not believe Reed had decided the question, though lie* might have done so. Under the rub's this refe rence could be made at any time and nothing more would be* necessary than the speaker’s order. It is believed by the friends of the original house bill that this reference would result in securing time in which to reach a compromise basis upon which both senate and house can stand. The conservative silver men are of the; opinion that the outcome* of the proposed reference of the bill back to the committee would be the passage of a liberal silver bill and the defeat of the senate. DID NOT SETTLE THE QUESTION. The Effect iii Wall .Street of the Senate Vote on tile Silver Bill. Nkw York. June; 18.—Judging by the effect in Wall street, yesterday’s vote in the senate on the silver bill did not go very far towards settling the question. Bar silver would be worth about $1.29 should the free coinage bill be passe*d, yet it is quoted to-day at 81.05. against 1.04JU last night. The opinions of bankers and brokers as to its ultimate effects were very diverse, but the general impression is the measure means a mild inflation of currency and an advance in every commodity dealt in. Russell Sage and other prominent men say they look on the bill with apprehension and fear the* ill (‘.fleets to follow its passage. Some bankers said the adoption of the free coinage measure would be a disaster and work great injury. The effect of these unfavorable opinions have put a damper on the little boom that started just after the opening and the believers in the; advance decided to refrain from any active movement until the passage of the bill through both houses was an assured fact. Russell Sage; said:    “I    look with ap prehension on the action of the* senate in passing a fre;e coinage bill. If the law should ever become operative it would create such inflation that a panic would be sure to follow. Iii fact I believe the effect of the law will be felt immediately on its passege because European holdt*rs of our securities will be almost certain to throw their holding on our market, at least all securities not payable in gold.’’ John IL Inman said:    “It looks to me like bad legislation. The effect can only be injurious. Of course, there might be a temporary boom in business if free coinage was adopted, but the final windup will almost certainly be disastrous.” D. F. Foshay, of Zimmer & Foshay, bullion dealers, regarded the passage of the free coinage bill with great complaisance. “The trouble is,” he said, “the house may not follow in the senate’s footsteps. We want more money iii this country and free coinage is a practicable and legitimate* way of securing it.” HARRISON TO RETIRE. HORSEWHIPPED IN A HOTEL. Sioux City Ladies Defend Their Fair Names from a Defamer. Against the Whisky Dealers—Attempted a Horrible Suicide — Fortune’s Strange Wheel—The Adult Blind Institution. Sioux City. June 17.—Last night a delegation of women headed by Mrs. Nellie Snyder, proceeded to the Exchange hotel, at the stock yards, for the purpose of chastising Pat Gorman, who, they alleged, had circulated slanderous stories about their fair names. Mrs. Snyder is a buxom widow and for some time past has been keeping company with Gorman. For some season she got tired of his attentions and threw him over. Pat resented this slight upon his affections by circulating indecent stories regarding the morality of his old flame. The stories coming to the ears of Mrs. Snyder naturally caused indignation. At first she was disposed to have him arrested, but at a conference composed of ladies of her immediate acquaintance it was decided to give him a horse-whipping. Last night the ladies assembled at the residence of Mrs. Snyder and at once went to the hotel where Gorman was boarding and ranged themselves in the hall, be*ing each arnmd with ropes, whips, sticks and harness tugs. Kitty Flynn was dispatched to the room of Gorman to tell him that Nellie was down stairs and wanted to see him. Pat was just preparing for bed and at first lie; did not want to go down, but after thinking over the matter finally acquiesed. Upon reaching tile hallway Lue Forbes started the bali by striking him with the butt end of a buggy whip. Then ropes, sticks, whips were flying in the air and the women made a desperate effort to play even for all past wrongs. Gorman made a break for the stairs, and as a parting reminder that women could not be slandered with impunity, Mrs. Herbert, a sister of Mrs. Snyder, struck him across the face with a tug. Gorman, upon reaching his room, locked the door, and grasping his revolver, swore that he would shoot the first person who entered the room. The women then retired and left Gorman very much battered, but wiser. proved to be a German named Rachkey, was brought to this city. He will be examined by the commissioners of insanity He has a wife and children in the old country; and had saved up the money to send f(^ them when he was robbed of his all. It was this that caused his attempt at suicide. Charged with Jury Bribing. Des Moines, la.. June IS.—Lewis Foley is under arrest on two charges of contempt of court and attempting to bribe a juror. He told T. J. Kirkman, one of the jurors of the district court, it laid, that it would be $100 in his pocket if he would “hang” the jury in the the liquor case against him which will shortly be tried. Mr. Kirkman immediately informed Judge Kavanagh of this alleged attempt at bribery. Vexatious to State Officials. [Special to The Hawk-Eve.l Des Moines, June IS.—A dispatch, stating that it is impossible for Judge Fairall to give the iujunction case of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern railway a hearing on the 19th, the day fixed, is vexatious to the state officials, as the railroad commissioners can practically do nothing with the establishing of joint rates on this road so long as the injunction of the* court rests upon them. The ease will be heard July 7. LASSOED $1,000. Desperate Deed of Hamburg, la., Liii-gants Imperils a Kansas City Man’s Life. Hamburg, la., June 18.—Three desperate; men, with a lasso, secured a $1,-000 check from Jas. IL Stewart, a Kansas City capitalist, yesterday. Mr. Stewart is in a precarious condition tonight from his rough usage. He was riding near the; city in a buggy when John F., Charles !!, and ‘Doc’Golden attacked, threw the noose of a long rope about his neck, and dragged him over the dashboard. Ile was helpless in their hands and signed the check to escape. The trouble grew out of litigation over the title to lands claimed by the Goldens and by Stewart’s company. A MAGNIFICENT GIFT. He Says Ile Will Not Be a Candidate for Renomination. Washington, June IS.—“Bishop” Oberly will to-day print in his Critic the result of an interview held last evening by a prominent republican leader with President Harrison. The gentleman is not only a leader, but an intimate friend of Harrison. The latter is reported to have said in reply to an observation concerning the action on the senate bill: “Personally I regret it, but politically I Simi I not be governed by anything except what I conceive to be my duty to tin* whole country. I am not the president of any one party, nor am I president for purposes of self-seeking. My duty is to the whole county and I will perform it. I ani not nor will I be a candidate for renomination. I am sick and overwhelmed with the ingratituds of friends and the impertunity of selfish officeseekers. When my term is ended I will lay down the office with a sense of relief such as I have never before enjoyed. I will be* back to Indianapolis, resume* tilt* practice of law and retire from public affairs. Hence, whatever I may do with this or any other public question will be wholly free from personal interest.” Ten Thousand Dollars Donated to the Y. M. C. A. at Iowa City.

Clues Being Picked Up that are Almost Certain to Lead to the Discovery of the Murderer — Crimes and Casualties. Keokuk. June IS.—Developments made in the Cordell murder case, in this city, to-day. show conclusively that the girl came to this city. Afte*r leaving the Hotel Keokuk she walked about the city in search of a wretch vile enough to perform the operation that would hide her shame from the world. A reputable physician of the city, upon seeing the picture of the murdered girl in these columns, recognized it at once as that of a plump, sweet-faced young lady of modest demeanor who called at his office about a month ago. Her visit was made in the afternoon. After considerable hesitation and unfeigned embarrassment the young lady, who the doctor describes as about twenty-four or twenty-five years of ace. made known the object of her visit. The physician asked her a few questions as to her condition, which the girl reluctantly answered. When questioned as to her name she did not reply for some time, and then gave a name that the doctor felt assured was an assumed one. He then told the girl he could do nothing for her and advised her against tile step she contemplated. He spoke to her iii plain terms about tilt* nature of the offense she wanted committed, calling it murder, and tried to make the girl realize the frightful enormity of the crime. She appeared to bt* considerably impressed by his conversation and left the office*. Hiving the physician to understand from her actions that she* would abandon tile; effort. The fate of the poor girl, however, shows that she* did not do so. but continued her search until slit* found a person or persons capable of committing a double murder. This action on the* murdered girl's part would indicate* that her betrayer wa shrewd enough not to implicate himself iii the arrangements for the abortion He sent the girl to this city on a lonely search for a medical miscreant who would for a paltry sum perform an operation that involved child-murder and placed in danger the* lift* of the woman upon whom it was attempted. The fact that the girl carried away but little of her own money from Industry, as far as is known, would appear to show that she was supplied with funds for the trip and to defray the expenses of the operation by some person equally interested with her in having it performed. From the* information now in possession of those* engaged in the case and the* work that is to be done at the* instigation of the determined men who have assumed charge, it is almost absolutely certain that the wretch or wretches responsible for Elhi Cordell’s death will be discovered and dragged to the bar of justice to answer to their double crime.

NO RAY OF HOPE. The Ill-Fated Farm Hill Miners Have Undoubtedly Succumbed. Dunbar. June IS.—There is not a ray of hope or encouragement offered the rescuing parties at the Farm Hill mine this morning, except that they are one day nearer the completion of their work, which grows more difficult every hour. Rescuing parties are digging through the fallen wreck that reaches to the roof. and are now working within seventy-five feet of where they expect to break into the Farm Hill mine lead. There are grave fears now of another explosion since the occurrence of this morning. About two o'clock this morning a heavy fall occurred in the main slope. This shut off the draft and turned the smoke and heat bal k into the chamber in such volumes that no man could live. The heat in the Mahoning drift is growing more* intense, and only an occasional blast from the fan makes their work bearable. This stoppage of the gas will also shut in the gas, and work is proceeding even more cautiously than before. RAILROAD HORRORS. A Wrecking Engine on the* Canii(l:i Pacific Plunges Into a Creek. Toronto. June IS.—An accident occurred on the Canada Pacific railway last night between Ylaremont and Myrtle*, thirteen miles ('ast of Toronto.

GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS. Tile Disposition of the Silver Bill the Absorbing Topic. Washington, June IS.—The all absorbing topic to-day in the house is the probable disposition of the silver bill which passed the senate yesterday. When tho bill was received from the senate this afternoon. Bland's motion of the committee of the whole to rise to immediately consider the bill was received with wild applause. The democrats, who saw a chance to score a point, supported it as a unit, with two exceptions. No republicans voted for the motion. It is entirely improbable that the bill could have been reached even had the committee risen. Presidential Appointments.

Des Moines. June 18.—Judge Kavanagh has rendered a decision in the original package case of the state vs. Terry Chambers. The judge sustains the low’er court in condemning the liquors, the evidence tending to show that Chambers had broken the original packages and was selling in quantities to suit purchasers. The opinion says that the right of a citizen to import intoxicating liquors into the state and the corollary right of the importer to sell the goods thus brought in is no longer a controverted question, but holds that the goods must remain in the package in which they are imported. The original package business in Des Moines is revolutionized temporarily by Judge Kavanagh’s decision. The search ers closed up five places to-day where beer was sold in bottles, and confiscated the stocks. The decision will be evaded by shipping bottles of liquors loose in cars and not putting them in cases. At present no beer is sold by bottle openly. FORTUNES STRANGE WHEEL.

June IS.—Smith's announcement yesterday of the revolutionary step decided on bv the government to reduce the minority in parliament to a position of absolute impotence and silence, took the breath away of some of the unionists and those older tories who have been sticklers for the maintenance of the privileges or parliament. The old man looked disgusted with his work and scarcely spoke above his breath. His tory-unionist supporters looked frozen and not a ripple of applause cheered him ho stumbled hesitatingly through a task that was evidently not congenial. The abler tories looked ashamed and the unionists squirmed in their seats as proportion after proposition that violated every principle for which they had been fighting for twenty years was announced. But the determination to swallow it all, so that the hated Gladstone might be kept out of power for the short pan of life still left him, was visible in faces of both tories and dissident liberals all the same. It was a bitter pill, but it will be gulped down, and the Salisbury government will be armed with more power than has been held by any English ministry since before tin* revolution of 168s. Tin* scene that followed was a fair indication of the stormy times the house will have before the drastic changes iii parliamentary procedure involved in the new rules can be adopted. Gladstone jumped into the fray with tin* agility and vigor of a younger combatant and announced Iii- intention to tight tin* new gag law tooth and nail. The mute government supporters looked guilty, and his own supporters burst into a wild cheer when lie told tin* ministers that they were saeriticing everything to pass tin* licensing bill -making tin* whole nation suffer in tin* interest of the publicans. Others accused two members of tin* cabinet of having a personal interest iii breweries, an accusation which the accused ministers promptly denied, and Tim Healy hissed in Gone hen’s ear that he had mn* eye on tin* polling-booth and the other on the stock exchange. The rules will be carried, but only after a struggle that will be historic. The young tory squires will not stay away from Ascot, while tin* radicals and Bar-nellites will swarm nightly in tin* house and make things exceedingly lively. The agreement between England and Germany in regard to Africa ^concedes to England a few unimportant areas and gives Germany in return the prize of Haligolahd in tin* Herman ocean, which tin* English have held since the accession of the house of Hanover. Germany has always felt sore at the presence of a foreign flag so near loir shore. The island will he strongly fortified and will be made a German naval station. As may be supposed, the settlement of tin; dispute in the manner stipulated in the agreement between the two powers just published is seized upon by the oppon-onts of tho government as a club with which to belabor the ministry. While it would be absurd to assume that the opposition would have been satisfied with any settlement the government might make, even though it involved the presentation of tin* whole German (unpin; to England, it cannot he denied that they have a considerable degree of justification for their strictures in the very genera! belief that England has surrendered too much. Several of the papers arraign the ministry (»n thi> charge, notably the Chronicle, which pays its respects to Lord Salisbury in a violent leader. In its concluding passage the Chronicle says: Lord Salisbury has fixed upon the brow of the imperial unionist party an indelible brand of ignominy, which gives the cue to other powers to demand similar concessions. Sixty Barnellite members of parliament called on Cardinal Manning to-day and presented that prelate with an address recognizing bis great services to Ireland. In reply^o the address the cardinal s^d he had great hopes for the future of Ireland, and believed that this would be realized at no distant day. He had not liked Mr. Gladstone’s home rule bill, though lie had not opposed it, but he had rejoiced in the liberal premier's land bill, remembering as he did how for many vcuin England had drained Ireland.
