II** went on to relate what he saw in this respect at a visit to th** penitentiary last January when the board of managers wore in -es-ion. ii** found that applicants for parol** were admitted before the board t*y iii** half-dozen at a time and that each one was referred to members of the representative county from which th** prisoner came, that each member examined th** prisoner privately to some publicly and mad** ii - recommendation to the board, and upon tiffs the board acted. It was a “courtesy of the senate" extended by til** members to each other. 'They gave no -ort of attention to the record of the prisoner’- conduct in prison. Indeed, one of the board -bowed him a telegram from a very prominent railroad man a-king him to parol** certain prisoners that day, and he said ii** would rather act on that telegram than on anything the warden might sugge-t. After til** meeting he asked iii** warden what was til** effect of this method on prison discipline, and he answered it was most disastrous.

Mr. Elliot' spoke of his resolution of yesterday and complained of having been deprived of th** floor in a parliamentat > but, rather unfair manner. There was quite a lengthy discussion between himself, the speaker and Blount, at the conclusion of which the resolution was adopted. Soon after McKinley brought in a conference report on til*' tariff bill and it was ordered printed in the Hmm!. Mr. McKinley then gave notice that to-morrow, immediately alter t fit* reading of the journal, in* would ca • up th** report for final consideration and final disposition. Mr. McMillan, of Tennessee, protested against such a short time and suggested that the report be taken up Monday. There was not a disposition on the part of the democrats to delay it- consideration, but th** bill should be carefully cun- Mr. McKinley said the bill as it would be* printed contained all th** tiling* recommended by the conference committee. The amended paragraphs would appear in small capitals. A- to manx features of th** bio, point- ot tii>.igrr> * ment had been perfectly well understood for weeks arid was perfect^ understood what the conferee*•» committee recommended. The gentlemen on both sides were anxious to get home and he must insist upon the consideration tomorrow. Mr. McMillan thereupon insisted upon the reading of rh*' conference report. The reading was not completed at six o’clock when the house took a re* **-s, before which McKinley offered for reference a resolution for the final adjournment of congress on Tuesday next a* i"*1 o’clock. At the evening session passed 112 private pension journed.    ___ Wa which th* Indemnifying Settlers.

Vdditionul Particular- Reflect American Vlini-ter. Nkw Yoiik. Sept. 16.—Additional information as to the killing of Barrnndia, the Guatemalan refugee, reached this '■tty yesterday at the -am** time with the news that congress had at last recognized the necessity of an official investigation into the relations of th** United States minister to that affair. Attention i-calh'd to th** fact that Gen. Barrnndia was killed two days after the conclusion of a treaty of peace, the terms of which expressly granted a general amnesty to insurgents and similar offenders in both Guatemala and San Salvador. Minister Mizner, as appears by his letter, knew that this treaty had been accepted when he wrote the letter, which was Barrundia’s death warant. The report that a daughter of the dead general had threatened Minister Mizner with a pistol is confirmed, with additional details which do little credit to the minister's courage. The minister's danger seem- to have been far l**ss imminent and his terror much greater than appeared from the first reports. From the City of Mexico there come- a singular story, showing beyond a doubt that the Guatemalan government has deliberately sot about misleading the people of this country, through the press, as to the actual circumstances of the Barrnndia affair. The scheme was to be worked through an apparently subsidized correspondent of American papers and pres-asso* iations, and had fair prospects of success. THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. Temperance Advised Non-Action on the flnrKtion. J a* kson, S**pt. 26.—Tile constitutional convention to-day, after a debate, adopted th*- report of th** majority of th** committee on temperance—72 to 18. This report recommends imn-a***ion, deeming any agitation of the liquor question at this time “inopportune.” Th * minority had urged an amendment to the constitution declaring a1! saloons and tippling houses public nuisances which might be suppressed by prosecution or upon complaint of any citizen. The friends of the minority claim they were defeated because th** franchise committee did not care to provoke the hostility of so powerful an element a> the saloon interests.
