During the discussion of the bill Republicans who have spent years of service in contending for the protective principle were beard to de clare that modern Republican "pro ttvtion" meant a robbery of the people tiy taxing them to support corpora tions, trusts, and combines; while on the other hand, was presented the in teresting spectacle of Southern Demo crats ( among them Tillman and Mc I aurin of South Carolina, and Bacon and Clay of Georgia) contending for a protection upon the industries in which their States were interested, while one, McKnery, of Louisiana, re corded his vote in favor of the bill upon its final passage; thus proving the Populist contention that the tar It is only a local and secondary issue. The principle features in tbe dis cussion of the bill since our last letter were : The adoption on Monday of the Lodge amendment to place a tax on sale of bonds and stocks. This amend ment was agreed to without even the formality of a yea and nay vote. Sen ator Spooner's amendment creating a tarlif commission sfter some discus sion was finally withdrawn. On Tuesday the debate on the Beet Sugar bounty took up the better part of the day. The discussion upon this proposition was indulged in by Sena tors Allen and Thurston of Nebraska, into which a great deal of Nebraska politics was" injected, Senator Allen openly charging tbe Republican Ad ministration of Nebraska with the theft of over half million of 'dollars from the State Treasury. Senator Al iens amendment to place a bounty upon beet sugar was lost, the straight I.Vpublicans and Democrats alike vot ing against it, while the nine votes it received were composed entirely of i'opulists and Silver Republicans. A motion was agreed to to take a vote on the following day, Wednesday, and that the debate should proceed under tlve minute rule. There was much interest manifested in and around the Senate on Wednes day, and it was known that sometime luring the day would end the long irawn out fight over the tariff bill. There was a large attendance of Sena tors, and the galleries for tbe first time during the long and tedious dis cussion were filled to overflowing. Af ter all the amendments offered during t lie day had been acted upon, a good deal of time was taken up by Sena tors in explaining why they would fit her vote against the bill or refrain from voting at all. Some very inter esting remarks were made by Senator Teller, who said in part : "Mr, President, I have on so many occasions declared myself a protection ist that it is hardly necessary for me to do it again. Had the bill been pre sented on protection lines, or upon what I have heretofore supposed to be Kepublican lines, it would have had my vote, although I am not one of those who believe that it will restore confidence or in anywise affect the ex isting depression. 1 repeat in mv iudement it is the worst tariff bill that has ever been passed. In my opinion it takes good care of all the trusts and all the com binations of the country; and, if I can say it without being offensive in my judgment the trusts and combines and syndicates have had rather too much to do with the making of the bill." Senator Butler in explaining why le refrained from voting on the bill said: "This bill is not defensible either as a revenue or protection measure, and it the tariff had not been used for a partisan football for a quarter of a entury between the two old parties n order to draw attention from the financial and mononolv Questions the real issues I should cast my vote against the bill." The Senators not voting and not paired on the question were Messrs. Allen, Butler, lleitfeld, Kyle, Petti Kw, Stewart and Teller. Senator Cannon, a Silver Republi can, voted with the Democrats against tbe bill. 'The vice-President announced as conferee on the nart of the Senate, Senators Allison. Aldrich. Piatt, of onnecticut.

The first national bank of Mason, the lead inc bank. here, has failed, and the lec.ive uureau. has confeaMd that h planned with Mrs. Aogustia Nack and himself committed the murder of William Goldensunpe, a Turkish bath masseur, and the former lover of Mrs. Nack. There are some inconsistencies in tbe story given out bv tbe notice. and which is altered to hava reaehd them second hand. nresumablT from John Dolpha, a former friend of Thorn wno last night led the police to Thorn's piace oi concealment. Thoks's Comfbsbioh. According to his confession. th murder of GuldensuDDe was committed on JTridav, Jane 26, in the house at WfetfsIdCli. I- Which had been rent. edvby Mrs. Nack. On Monday, the statement says. Thorn went earlv to the Woodside bouse and hid in a closet on the u oner floor. In bis docket he had a loaded revolver, and beside him was a two-pound package of plaster of paris. lie waited for the arrival of Mr. Nack and OoldensuDoe. Ue took oil his shoes so that no accidental noise could spoil his carefully laid plan. The Victim Arrives. It was between 10 and 11 o'clock in the morning when Mrs. Nacs and her victim, Guldensuppe, drove up in the surrey. Thorn heard Mrs. Nach ask Guldensuppe a few questions about tbe house and beard Guldensuppe an swer. Then Mrs. Nack said according to the confession : "Willie, don't wait for roe. Go through the house and see how you like it. "Oh! I'll just stay here until you come back," Guldensudne replied. But Mrs. Nack, according to the con fession, was anxious not to see the actual commission of the murder she had planned. "No, don't wait" she urged, go and see the rooms upstairs ; I think you'll like them." Opens tbe Fatal Closet. Thorn, concealed behind the. door of the closet, heard Guldensuppe's steps on the stairs as he complied with tbe woman's request. Carelessly Gulden suppe opened door after door until he came to the closet where Thorn stood. As the door sprung open Thorn shot Guldensuppe right in tbe head. He died almost instantly. Thorn took hold of tbe body by the shoulders, dragged it downstairs and shoved it into the bath tub. Then Thorn went to the ground floor, where Mrs. NacK was waiting. "It's done," said he. "I know," re plied Mrs. Nack. "I heard." "Now, go back to the city," Thorn said to Mrs. Nack, "and come back here at 5 o'clock; everything will be ready." Cuts Up the Dead Body. All this conversation and much more is embodied in this alleged con fession. Mrs. Nack obeyed Thorn's injunction and tbe murderer returned to tbe bath tub. lie cut on the head with a razor and saw. Then he pack ed the the head closely with plaster of paris until it looked like a block of white stone. Then he severed the legs and after that the lower part of the trunk. He wrapped it up in cheese cloth, tied the bundles neatly, lit a pipe and sat looking at his handiwork, until Mrs. Nack returned in the surrey. Bundles Thrown Into The River- Carrying the bundles with him they both took the ferry-boat across to New York on the way over they threw the bundles into tbe river. How one portion body of the found its way to the woods in which was discovered is not explained in the confession. Acting inspector U'Unen thinks he knows where Thorn dropped the head of Guldensuppe into the river, and says be is going to arrange for the dragging of river at that point. He also says that Thorn in his confession to friend said that he had been dis appointed in the house at Woodside, as the drain from the bath tub instead of running into a sewer, ran into a ditch outside the house. Contradictory Statement. Acting Inspector O'Brien Is quoted as saying that Thorn has made a state ment in which he positively denies that he murdered Guldensuppe or knows wbo did it. An examination has been made of the bathtub of the house at Woodside, and in a trap underneath the tub about a pound of plaster of paris has been discovered. This find is regarded as strengthening the circumstantial de tails of the alleged confession. Winner of the Most Famous Race Ever Pun on Tennessee Soil. fContiDoed from last week.J III. For several days Anne was in state of quiet happiness. She did not see Jim for a week the did mot want to. She did not know what was going to happen, but she felt like something was, and that all waa safe. She sang around the house like a bird. It all flashed over her one day when her father said at the tea table: "That boy Jim Weatherall U a trump. He has got more horse sense in a month than I have in a year!" Anne looked op in astonishment. The Colonel continued. "You know Ole Mistis is entered in the Cumber land Futurity, worth $50,000 to the winner.

(but Anne was busy with her teacup, while her cheeks were scarlet) seems to be more so of late, and has been over every day. He soon con vinced me the mare was shod wrong and that the boy Brutus knew noth ing aoout his business. 'Why, Col onel,' he said, in his blunt way, 4 he shouldn't ride a speckled steer to water for me the mare is fast, very fast he doesn't understand her.' And what do you reckon f" Anne could not imagine! "Why, he is act ually working her himself, with Jake as rider, and I never saw such improvement, Anne," he said as he came around to her chair. "If I could only win that stake it would be the happiest day of my life. Never more would I race a horse never again would 1 gamble, I feel almost upset of late. I am weak, peevish, J vacillating and unnerved. Last night,'' he said slowly, and with more seriousness than was his custom, "I dreamed of your dear mother, child, and her sweet, dark eyes seemed full of pity and sorrow,' and Col. Dinwiddie walk slowly over to the pox trait which hung on the wall and stood looking at it in silent admiration, while his daughter came up and pnt her arms around him with, "Never mind, father; don't be worried. J ust let Jim take charge he is clever and honest and will sur prise you yet." The morning of the greatest race ever run on Tennessee soil came. The city was crowded with visitors; excitement was at fever heat. There is nothing so well known among horsemen as the ordinary chances of the various horses to win a great race. It is not to be won dered that the human mind, capable of discovering and weighing, hereto fore unknown and unseen stars, should not be able, when properly directed, to weigh the various chances which in the aggregate will determine which one of several horses will win a race. Tb.6se chances may be computed as accurately as insurance companies compute risks for the principle which is the same as accurately as the skillful physi eian may determine the chances of life in a fever-stricken patient. At 10 o'clock, on the day of Waterloo, Napoleon is said to have remarked that he had ninety ehances out of a hundred of gaining the battle; at noon over seventy, he had said; at 2 o'clock forty; at 3 twenty, and when Blucher's fresh troops came thun dering on the field, and later a sol dier stopped the Emperor as he wan dered aimlessly toward Paris, his faithful horse following, his ehances were gone forever! W a liiwn't a fill .n Aa in (ho world, Anne," said Col. Dinwiddie to his daughter as she sat in the grand stand, dazed and confused with the mighty crowd around her and a terrible weight on her heart. "It is not so bad at that, Anne,'' said Jim. who had come up to whisper a few words of encourage ment before the horses started; "there is always a chance in a horse race. The best one may break his leg in ten feet of the wire. Sa don't be altogether wretched." and he went off to look after the mare Two o'clock! The crowd was im- mense. is ever oeiore was aesemoiea "What! Me beat ole Mistis wid dis thing! Ole Mistis my ole Mis tis! I'll take it myself fust! Sho'ly Marster ain't at hissef" and he looked around to see where the bsy horse, Loraine, was. -At that mo ment Jim Weatherall came up. "Jake," he said, "what did the colonel tell youf" Jake told him. "That's all right; now listen to me. Do you see that path of firm clay there in the center of the trackf Well, it runs from the last eighth to the wire. I worked all the morning with ten teams. I put it there.

Do you understand me, JakeT" The negro's eyes sparkled. "I'll win it eny way, et l can, Marse Jim," and Jake waited for the word. Bat all were not ready, and the longer they waited the more intense became the boy's anxiety. Left to himself in a crowd of rough jockeys, who did what they could to frighten the mare and annoy the boy, it was almost pathetic to see him reach over and stroke the great gray's neck and say to her: "Doncher be afeered, ole Mistis dis am. Jake little Jake,'' and then he would add, softly and tenderly, "My ole Mistis my ole MistisT" And what a wonderful change came over the mare! Not to day, as she had been on former occasions. was she nervous and unruly, whirl ing 'round and 'round, endeavoring to break away, or refusing to line up. Her entire nature seemed changed Jake's presence was magi cal. She stood perfectly still, quiet and apparently indifferent and only in her quick, glancing eye and the almost imperceptible play of her ears could a close observer have seen the great struggle going on within her a struggle to control the frantic desire for wild flight a desire in herited from an hundred ancestors now fighting for possession of her nature. It was a grand example, even in a brute, of will conquering passion, of dumb intelligence con trolling brute force, of a small ray of human reasons, playing like an electric spark through clouds of tumultous darkness and waiting for the explosion that would make the thunderbolt! The starter is talking Jake knows not what, but he gathers the reins tighter. The flag drops; the ball of living, fiery nesh is shot; a roar an swers back from the grand stand which says, "They're off! They're off! !" Jake had great confidence in his master's judgment. Ignoring every other horse he kept his small, black eyes on the big, galloping bay, and his swaggering, insolent driver. Unused to the crowd and the flying rider appear Three mile! white line stt etched in the air. Jake I old. heard the ahontsof the riders behind I didate him. the slashing of manv whins asldorsed. the keen instruments of torture fell on straining fl inks. His own mare sendded before the field of noise be hind ber like a sea-bird the hurri cane's roar, and yet she seemed to get no nearer the demon bay that flew fearlessly along. She pulled on her bit! Instinct seemed to tell her she must go now or never. "Not yit, ole Mistis, not yit! ' said her ashen faced driver as he bent to her stride and patted her sweat covered neck. At the last hall! It seemed to Jake they had gone a day's journey that time had stopped and eternity had begun since he shot away on that frenzied ride. How many bur miles yet lay between him, it seemed, and where Miss Anne sat, pale and statue-like, in the blurred bank of humanity under the grand stand! The last quarter! Jake raised in his stirrups. "Now ole Mistis, go!' he fairly shouted, as he gave her full head for the first time. The mare responded with a gallant leap another and another but no nearer did she come to the bay. Loraine had been turned loose, too, and in creased the distance between them with demoniacal swiftness! Like a death-stab the thought went through Jake's mind, for the first time, that he eould not win. The tears gushed to his eyes, the blood seemed to con geal in his very heart; he clutched the saddle to retain his seat. Lo raine was just ahead; they were now at the last eighth. Frenzied fran tic blinded and bewildered, Jake knew not what he did. In despair he raised his whip, it flashed a mo ment in the sunlight, then went whistling across the track! He had thrown it away! Bat look' Lo raine now fairly flew! He seemed to know the time had come. His own maref She was falling back. He knew it, he felt it he was beatenf Overcome with grief and shame, he forgot all about Loraine. He thought only of the old home, cf his love for his master, of Miss Anue, of his idolatrous worship of the mare, mingled with the fact that be had ruined them all. A clay path flashed under the mare's nose, and then he thought of Jim Weatherall 's words of his promised freedom. Crszed with fesr and shame be guided the mare in the path, let out all his rein, and flung himself forward on her neck, clinging to her mane like an imp on a flying cloud. Thrusting two brown heels into her flanks, he burst out crying, and in tones that moved even the victorious rider of Loraine, he sobbed: "Ole Mistis! ole Mistis! Dis am Jake little JakeT Go home, ole Mistif ! Go home, ole Mistis!! Fo home!!!" To the surprise of the spectators who now looked on tbe victory of Loraine as complete, the mare an swered this pathetic call with a burst of speed unheard of on the track even to this day. A thousand de mons of determination blsz d in her eyes. One two three leaps she made, like a startled doe at the death bleat of her fawn, and in a twink ling she had cleared the distance be tween herself and the bay. Tbe crowd roared in a tnmult of excite ment men climb on one another's shoulders the gray mare came like a rockel ! Lorain e's driver, startled and now thoroughly in earnest, went to his whip. It flashed a mo ment in the air and fell with sting ing emphasis on the bay's shoulders! The animal swerved that blow was his ruin!

McLean for Sen ator. There was, however, a con tinuation of the contests for the dif ferent places on tbe State ticket aad different positions on the eon: mittees. In the contest for Governor John C. Welty and Horace L. Chapman showed mnch strength to-day. Eves if the McLean men insist on putting through the Hough slate tomorrow, it is believed that there will be sev eral ballots, in order to permit the dozen or more candidates to show their respective polls. On all sides it was held that no standard bearer ahonld bo selected wbo bad any gold streak in his ree ord. While it was conceded that R. V. Hough, a McLean man, was an orig inal Bryan man at Chicago even be fore the nomination was made, and that he had advocated a free sil ver plank in the State platform three years ago, when Senator Btiee controlled tbe State convention against him, yet the fact that Mr. Hough wore a C arlisle button one day in Washington was used as dam aging evidence against him. The McLean men were an anxious for a elean-ent silver man for Gov ernor, as no objection was made to Mr. McLean's record on that issue. They felt that McLean waa suffer ing some on account of his friends supporting Mr. Hongh, against whose silver record some found ob jections. The McLean men held that the re ports against Hongh were untrue. and that they were circulated by the managers of other candidates for Governor, bnt it was evident that the Me Lean lieutenants to-day con sidered the situation serious enough to have another man ready for the slate in the event that they eonld not control their forces for Hough. Columbus, Ohio, June 30. the Democratic State conventian here to-day was one of the most memora ble political occasions in the history of Ohio. It waa a convention of unanimity on principles and of dif feiences on men, especially on those wbo were candidates lor places on the 8 tale ticket. Ia the contests for favorites it was also a conven tion of endurance, as tbe delegates took no recess and were in session continuously from 10 a. m. till al most that hour to-night. The ticket nominated is as follows: Governor Hokack L Chapm. Lieutenant Governor Melville D. Shaw. Supreme Jodge J. P. Eraioos. Attorney General W. U. Done State Treasurer Jam is F. Wil- sow.

The storm was general, and it is impossible to estimate the amoaatof damage with any degree of certainty. The cyrloae, which was central near Glen wood, was the worst that ever struck this stats. The telegraph lines are down for seventy-five miloe each std of there and particulars are hard gt. The list of ;dead at Glen wood, no far as known, is fourteen.

Railroad traffic i paralv aed because of the heavy fall of rain. The rain came so suddenly and so fiercely in some places that many trains raa into washouts be fore they had any intimation of danger. Crops have been damaged to an ir reparable extent and a largo amoaut of live stack was killed. Reports of washouts, floods, and cyelooe are being received almost hourly.

Hancy- ville, just across tne county line in Clinton county, was the scene of a fiendish crime this morning, in which the victim (a 7-year-old girl) was criminally assaulted and then mur dered. The residents of the town are filled with keenest indignation and are making strenuous efforts to find the murderer, of whom no clue has yet been discovered. ATiai'i Supply of Stamps. According to Assistant Secretary Vanderlip the probable requirements of the Postoffice Department tor atamns dnrinsr the fiscal year, end ing June 30th, 1898, will be as fol lows: Ordinary stamps, 3,444,167, 000; newspaperand periodical stamps, 6,462,000; postage due stamps, 21, 168,000. Of the ordinary stamps two and a half billions are of the 2 cent denomination, and five millions are of the 10 cent special delivery series.

Cur tis Miller, a young man, of Arnetts ville, while walkingtlong the street yesterday was struck Jy lightning, the bolt entirely denuding; - him, stripping off even his underclothes and shoes. He was stunned only a little, and, greatly frightened, ran block to his home. ' drivers were weighed, horses handi capped and all sent up the stretch. Jake was delighted when told he was to ride ole Mistis. He was ig norant to the fact that the mare was thought to be no fix to win and that the bettine was 20 to 1 against her, "All envbodv's got to do," he said to himself, "is to set on her and sruide 'er. I'd like to see 'em beat ole Mistis!" But when his master in the stretch to give tions even the little something was wrong. seen the Colonel look that way fore. His eves were stern, but ex pressionless; his voice husky with emotion, and the quick spirit of command seemed to have given way to the evil genius of despair. Quiet and commanding as ever, but Jake saw he was in no mood to be crossed and he all but guessed his master had made up his mind for defeat andfruin. "Jake!" "Yes. Master, said Jake. "Lister to what I tell von, and do as I tell vou. Do yon. see that bay horse thare?' hVm MWaA V and . Jsk-s eaat his keen eve contemptuously on the bay.

The roar of the wind in his ears hurt them; he dodged instinctively, and with a silent prayer laid his mount on the side of the bay and held her in. ine rider of Loraine was an old jockey and knew as well as the gamblers what horse he had to beat, as well as the almost invincible prowess of his own horse there was nothing there could beat him! "Don't ride so. fast, little nig,'' he shouted to Jake in derision. "Gib de rest of us a showin'; we've got fo' miles to gc: don't pump us out de fust mile." But this disturbed not Jake. If a negro has one quality overtopping all others it is his infinite patience. And Jake was a true type of his race. He said nothing, but no snake in the swamp had a quicker eye, or knew bet'er when to strike. As the Colonel had said, Loraine had set the pace, and it was hot enough. "Bnt look, Anne," he said, Vinw the ma.ro evMMl tA his anrth and stays there! See with what a bold and assuring stride she mes along easy, graceful, unooncernea. - i never saw her run so! Great God! if she will only win!7- And Anne, when she saw the gallant fight, cried softly to herself and sent up a silent prayer, before having felt a blow, swerved slightly to avoid it. Only a yard or two but yards are miles when sec onds are hurricane's! Uaiy a mo ment of indecision but indecision is mutiny when stakes are kingdoms! Like a swallow before the blast the gray mare thrust her long neck un der the wire and the raee was won! A moment later tbe crowd of shouting, frenzied people ceased shouting to a man, when the fleet animal, having no one to guide her, turned suddenly into the draw-gate that opened dn the in field and left a mangled rider on the traek. Later they stood, a surging erowd, around a beautiful girl seated on the gronnd and holding a bruised and bleeding face on her lap, upon whieh her own tears fell. The boy opened his eyes and half unconsciously began mur- 'Most home, ole Mistis! 'Most home!" Presently a ray of consciousness eame back to his 'luster less orbs as he recognized his young- mistress and exelaimed: ' Oh, Miss Anne, did we win." and interpreting correctly the half joyous smile that, despite her tears, shene round her month at thought of their victory, he elosed his eyes and said: - "Thang God, an I didn't teeh 'er a lick. Tell marster Pm sorry but I couldn't hit 'er!" r For a moment he was silent and then his lips moved again DATE FOR THE HEARJNft. n ferre jCraJs Will Slave na A ad lea ee nTbs S7th.

Senator Ilatlsr, ia a spirit quite different from a political boss, accorded Ihoss requesting the con vention a most respectfal hearing, and ex plat nod to them that ia his opinion a convention at this time eould not result ia any good, that it would mean a large expense to the party aad would probably result ia a damage to the party by proving to be a fail are ia tbe attendance and enthusiasm. They were not satis fied with the explanation of tbe chairman of the eoamittee. Mr. Batler then proposed what every one must admit was fair. He eould communicate with each member of the committee aad if a majority of the eomaittee desired that be call the committee together to fit a time for the National convention, he would do so. This was apparently satisfactory aad they see mod willing to abide the decision of tbe individ ual members of the committee.
