It was interesting to watch tho attention paid to the flr(,t roll call on permanent speaker, everyone was quiet and the result of the ballot was hoped to show a majority for one roan or the other, but it was the begining of the same old song ‘no choice,” clerk will call the roll ” The way things stand now, and with party feeling wrought up so high as it is, there is hardly any prospect of an early compromise and none will be attempted until it has been ascertained definitely that no man of the opposition can be brought over to the republican side. They are all in for a long stay of it and don’t expect to break soon. Some outsiders say: “The deadlock will lest till time for plowing and then you’ll see the farmer members break for home.” Rumors were current early in the evening that the republicans were perfecting plans whereby the dead-lock on mramnent organization might be Broken, but an investigation shows nothing of tho kind to bn the case, the leading members of the parly including the leaders in the house were in consultation this evening and the conclusion reached wa3 that the republicans generally desired to stay here quietly and do nothing until the opp sition grants them the speakership; they argue that they have tho senate and they can control legisiati rn completely and will be held responsible for everything done, hence thov must have tho speakership in order to shape things as they waul iham.

Washington, Jan. 28 — Among the memorials present and referred was one from the Aujfe;,,, (Maine) board of trade for the selerolk of New York as the site for the exposition of 1892; also one presented by Chandler for the estab-i sh rn en t of a republican form of government in the state of Mississippi Mr. Morrill, in introducing a bill authorizing the issue of treasury notes on deposits of silver bullion, and having it referred to the committee on finance, said that the committee had addressed a communication to the secretary of the treasury, asking him to formulate a bill in accordance with his recommendations relation to silver; that bill had been received. Without committing himself or any member of the committee to it he asked to have it printed and referred. A resolution was offered by McMillan and adopted instructing the library committee to inquire and report as to the propriety of purchasing the Stanley colection of Indian historical paintings now in the custody of the Smithsonian institute. The committee on public buildings and grounds reported the bill appropriate ng 92.500,000 for a public building at [ansae City, Missouri, and it was placed on the calendar. On motion of Sherman the senate bill to relieve the treasurer cf the United states from the amount now charged to lim and deposited with several states, was taken from the calendar and passed. On motion of Morrill a bill to credit and pay to the several states and territories and the District of Columbia all monies collected under the direct tax of 1851 was taken from the calendar. Mr. Sherman stated the bill was the same, word for word, as that which passed the last congress and as it had the unanimous vote of the finance committee, he hoped it would pass without dissent. Mr. Vest remarked that he had already spoken several times againt the bill and did hot care to trouble the senate now. He did not even ask for the ayes and nays on the passage of the bill, but if he ayes and nays were called for, he would record his vote against it. After considerable debate Vance offered an amendment to the proposition to refund the cotton tax; rejected. The bill then passed, yeaB 44. nays 7. ’he nays were Berry, Blair, Call. Coke, 3lumb, Vance and Vest, The bill makes it the duty of the secretary of the treasury to credit each state, territory and the District of Columbia with a sum equal to all collections made from said states and territories under the act of August 5, 1861, and amendatory acts thereto. It appropriates the necessary sum. Mr. Hoar’s resolution, caning on the secretary of war for information con cerning the seizure and imprisonment of Aapache prisoners was agreed to. The senate resumed the consideration of Chandler’s resolution discussed yes terday and George made an argument against it, holding the senate lad no jurisdiction to pass a law to punish the men who committed the Aberdeen outrage and asking of such case what right the senate had to make inquiry into the matter. He condemned the hanging in effigy of Secretary Proctor. Mr. Spooner said he was glad the day had come when the United States had an attorney general that would take notice of an outrage on an American citizen. he hanging in effigy of Secretary Proctor not only brought out the feeling of bitterness that existed in the south and which had no counterpart in the north, but also brought into the sunlight the recklessness, cruelty, brutality, indifference to law and to decency, which the country for many years had occasion to complain of. Referring to the accidental dropping, by Faunne, of a rope which mid the Proctor effigy, Spooner spoke of Jounce being led down the street of Aberdeen, surrounded by two or three hundred people with a man laying the ash on him at every step. An appeal to the ma} or of the city had been in vain. ‘‘Think of it!” exclaimed Spooner in passionate tones. ‘‘Alone, far from his home, lashed and scourged in the market place in the presence of three aundred chivalrous gentlemen and not me to step forward and arrest that brutal arm!” Mr. Spooner expressed regret that George had felt called upon in his remarks to pronounce an eulogy on Jefferson Davis. He had hoped no one would deem it necessary to do this in the senate chamber of the United States It would strike a harsh chord in the breasts of the millions of men throughout the north. The people do not believe as George said that Jeffer son Davis, either under the constitution or confederacy, never betrayed a trust. They believe, on the contrary, that Davis sat in the senate chamber betraying daily the highest trust ever reposed in man. But it was not for that that they execrated his memory. It was because they held him responsible for the atrocious, unspeakable, devilish, horrible cruelties visited on union prisoners In closing, Spooner said the resolution, if it accomp-ished nothing else, would subserve one good purpose. It would show there was a community (Aberdeen) where the love of Jefferson Davis’ memory is stronger than their respect of the law. Mr. Grey said the hanging of a high official in efflegy, while to be condemned, was not an unprecedented outrage. Quite recently President Harrison had been hanged in effiegy in the state of Indiana. He moved to amend the resolution by adding the words “and also a letter of instruction to the marshal to which the report was- a response” and also the following: “And he be requested to inform the senate chamber whether in the alleged assault on France any right secured to him by the constitution or laws of the United States were violated.” Mr. Butler offered an amendment instructing the attorney general to furnish all papers in the office of the district attorney of Indiana or in the United States court there relating to the Dudley case After farther debate the first part of Grey’s amendment was agreed to; the second part was not voted on. Mr. Call offered an amendment calling on the attorney general to report the hanging in effigy of President Harrison in Indiana and President Cleveland in Kansas. Without action, pending the amendments, the resolution went over. After an executive session the senate adjourned. THS HOUSE. The house passed a bill providing that in the cases of pension claims of depend ent parents it shall be necessary only to show to the pension office that the puents are without other means of sup port than manual labor E B. Taylor, of Ohio, called up tim motion made yesterday to table tim motion to reconsider the vote by which the house passed the bill providing for the erection of three United States prisons. The motion to table was agreed to—yeas 162, nays Iii. Mr. Dorsey, of Nebraska, from the committee on banking and currency, reported a bill to provide for the issue of circulating notes to national banking associations. The bill provides in substance that upon deposit of United States bonds any bank being entitled to receive circulating notes not exceeding in amount the par value of the bonds deposited, provided that at no tHne the amount of such notes exceed the amount actually paid in of the bank’s capital stock. Bland, Anderson of Kansas, Lane of Illinois, and |fc Gres, of Arkansas, opposed the bill and Pendleton, of West Virginia, favored it. The opponents argued it was not in the interests of the people but of the bankers and also antagonistic to the free coinage of silver. Mr. Cannon gave notice of a proposed substitute for the bill which is, in substance, that the national backs shall not be required to keep on deposit United States bonds in excess of 91,CKK), as se curity for circulating notes, but shall keep on deposit an amount of bonds ss herein required and such of those banks having deposited bends in excess of this amount are authorized to reduce their circulation by the deposit of lawful money as provided by law, provided the amount of such circulation does not exceed in any case nine-y per cent of the bonds deposited as herein provided. The bill then went over Mr, Peters introduced a bill (which was referred) setting apart certain lands in No Man’s Land for the propagation of buffaloes. The house then adjourned. CONGRESSIONAL gossip. the Railroad Men Testify Before Dr* seed Beef Committee. Washington. Jan. 28 —The senate dressed beef committee to day examined more railroad men Mr. Dutcher of the New York Central railroad, said his road paid three fourths of a cent mileage on dressed beef refrigerator cars, but nothing on cattle cars. Traffic Manager Harriet, of the Baltimore and Ohio, said his road paid three-fourths of a cent on cattle cars west of the Ohio river, but not east, on account of the trunk line agreement. The mileage is paid east and west on dressed beef cars. Vice President Hayden, of the New York Central, said the indications were the Grand Trunk was still paying mileage on private cars, but its officials deny the charge Vice President Thomson, of the Pennsylvania road, said his company would not carry patent live stock cars at ab; the company had enough of their own, aud its chief trouble was to keep its traffic moving. The senate committee on privileges and elections to-day took up the Montana senatorial election contest, but did nothing more than set it down for a hearing on February 15. A favorable report has been ordered by the house military committee on the bill to retire General Fremont with rank of major general, and a bill appropriating $40,000 for furnishing and opening the Marion, Indiana, branch of the soldiers’ home.

Serious Coudltioa of This** Washington, Jan. 28.—Senator Stanford to-day received a long dispatch from the west regarding the terrible snow blockade on the Central Pacific railroad. It says the snow is piled higher than the cabs of the locomotives and ordinary plows are of no use as they cannot throw the snow out of the channel. Two engineers and three firemen have been killed by the derailing of their engines. West of Summit the snow is piled on the snowslide to a depth of fifteen to twenty feet and it is feared the great weight will cru3h them in. East of that city the enow is even deeper. The telegraph wires are buried ten to twelve feet, although the poles are twenty-two feet high. Heavy land and snowslide* have occurred, breaking huge trees two and three feet in diameter like pipe stems. Another dispatch from Vice President Crocker reports a similar condition of affairs on the Portland line. Twenty -flve hundred extra men are employed clearing tracks and great difficulty is experienced in provisioning them, as all supplies have to be carried a distance on snow shoes and at enormous expense. GENERAL WASHINGTON NE V} 8 She was Attacked at Night by Stranger Who Cot Off AU Her Hair-The Assault %Ma»le Her Craiv. A Formidable Array of Bill* on th* Calendar--Boa** Oratory May be Expected. Washington, Jan. 28 —The indications are that the senate will devote itself this week to the disposition of bills and resolutions on the calendar, which now present themselves in a formidable array, covering fourteen printed pages. First in order stands Mr. Morgan’s bill to further provide for the disposal of public lands in Alabama, and by courtesy it will probably be allowed to retain its place until the author returns to Washington. The bill for the relief of the sufferers by the wreck of the United States fleet at Samoa will doubtless be acted upon early in the week, and otherwise the legislative proceedings promises to be devoted mainly to private claims and bills of local interest. There are several measures of general interest with in reach, such as the direct tax bill, the Blair education bill, and that for the amendment of the Mexi can award convention act of 1868, but as the senate is now acting only upon measures to which no objection is made, they are likely to be passed over. There is a possibility that Senator Call will again be heard from during the week, respect iog the Florida swamp lands, and bena tor George may feel it incumbent upon him to reply to Senator Ingalls’ criticism in his speech last week upon the connection of his sons with the “swamp angels.” In secret session the nominations of General Morgan, to be commissioner of Indian affairs, and Mr. Dorchester, to be commissioner of Indian schools, will doubtless be considered and may cause a prolonged debate, as Senator Jones, of Arkansas, will lead an active opposition. The calling of a republican caucus for Monday night is an indication that the house committee on rules will submit the new code of rules to the house early in the week, possibly Tuesday, if the caucus a harmonious. Of course, the code will have to be printed before being acted upon, which would necessarily throw its consideration over to the following day. It has been announced, however, that the committee on elections will on Wednesday call up the case of Smith vs. Jackson from the fourth West Virginia district; and as the democrats have declared their intention to resist to the utmost the consideration of any election case until the house has proper code of rules for its manage ment, a long wrangle may ensue. There is no business pending before the house, the Oklahoma town site bill and the administrative customs bill hav inc been disposed of, and until rules are adopted, any measures which may be passed will through the discretionary re cognition by the speaker of the members having them in charge. The contest over the site for the world’s fair may be resumed incidently in the house if the committee on roles decides to report favorably on Mr. Hitt's resolution increasing the membership of the committee having jurisdiction over the matter and proposing a method for selecting a location._ TH* WORLD'S Fair campaign. A Pension Case Decided. Washington, Jan. 28.—Assistant Secretary Bussey to-day rendered a decision on the pension claim of Isaac S War-moutb, sergeant in Company F, Third Illinois, Mexican war. The widow is granted a pension of $8.00 per month to date from 1857. Warmouth was the father of ex Governor Warmouth, of Louisiana. THE PRESIDENT AND THE RACE PROBLEM Senator Bruce called upon the president to day and incidentally mentioned the race question in the south Bruce told the president that he thought the salvation of the south and negroes would be secured by education. The president expressed a warm interest in the race question, which he said had given him more trouble than anything else since he became president. He hoped the trouble would bo peaceably settled. THE PRESIDENT'8 RECEPTION. The president’a reception to congress and the judiciary this evening attracted a good, but not unusually large assemblage to the White House. WILL PURCHASE THE SWOED.

TRE REPUBLIC; ANS WIN. A Decision by th* Supreme Coart In th* Montana Matter. Helena, Jan. 28.—The supreme court to-day decided the Thompson mandamus case by granting a peremtory writ order Ing the state auditor to allow a bill for mileage and per diem. Thompson is a legislator from Silver Bow county, being one of the five elected by the throwing out of the tunnel precint. The court goes into the questions of certiflcats and sustains the position cf the republicans, that a certificate from the state canvass ing board are only prima facie evidence of membership in the legislature. This decision makes the republican body the legal legislature. RAILROAD MATTERS. The mil May be Deed to Help Throne* Some Contested Election Cast* Washington, Jon. 28 —There is talk now among the democrats here that the world s fair bill may be used to help through some of the contested election cases. They charge that by holding the world's fair proposition bock it may be used to aid several democrats in retaining their seats. Several of the sitting members whose rights are contested have committed themselves to certain sites, and it is suggested that those mem bors who are deeply interested in the world’s fair will * not vote to unseat men who are supposed to be certain on the site question.

Schenk is a respectable-looking young man who was until recently night watchman at the Boston store. He lived with his wife, to whom he was married last summer, at 668 North Park avenue. On tee evenining of December IS he left his home at 6:30 to go to his worn. He left his wife in apparent good health and nappy. At 7:30 the next morning, when he returned to his home, he found her lying unconscious in the hallway, just outside the door of the front room Her long hair, dark brown, and of silky texture, had been cropped close to her head. Ever since that time she has been insane. It was County Physician Heuchling, who had been put on the witness stand first, that told this startling story to the court and jury. He said the woman had remained in an unconscious state for two hours after she was found, and had never recovered her reason She appeared to have no recollection of the events of that night, but was in constant fear, her hallucination being that she was followed and persecuted. “Was this ever reported to the police?” asked Judge Prendergast “I believe not.” said the doctor. “If it is true this woman was assaulted in that way, it is strange the police were not notified. The consequences of the affair are worse than if the woman had been murdered.” The husband was questioned further, and he said that a young man, living in the neighborhood, looked in through the window duiing the night and saw Mrs Schenk lying on a lounge A strange woman knelt beside the lounge, as if in prayer. He had never- seen the woman bef ire or since. Judge Frendergftst directed Dr. Heuchling to take the husband at once to pattee headquarters and relate tne fac-.s. They told the story to Lieutenant Burdick, who promised to investigate the case. Mrs. Schetk was declared insane, and was subsequently taken away by the husband. Schenk said that he believed the rob bery of his wife’s hair was the cause of her insanaty. There were no maxks of violence about her person, nor did her clothing indicate that she had been en gaged in a struggle; but her long hair was gone, and not a trace cf it could be found. He believed it would be impos Bible for her to cut it off herself in the way it was done. Schenk said that the person who saw the strange woman in the house was a young man named Kotch. Kotch roomed in the house, in an apartment rented to him by Schenk. He came home about eleven o’clock in the evening and found the door locked. Looking in through a broken shutter he saw the two women in the position described above. Finding that he could not get into the house he went away, and slept that night somewhere else. Lieutenant Burdick did not sesm much impressed with the story, but said he would detail a German officer to work on the case. Dr. Heuchling said the as sault, if it occurred, was probably not the primary cause of the woman’s insanity. He thought it arose from her physical condition and causes peculiar to her sex.

Chicago, Jan. 28.—The socialist and anarchist societies of this city are greatly excited over what they believe to be a huge police conspiracy against them A short time ago Detective Charles Nor dram was arrested and fined for alleged unwarranted assault on a man at a ho cialist meeting.

It is claimed that Nordrum furnished fourteen reports from this spy, who is Henry Dammeyer, a man wno since 1886 has been one of the most ag greasive anarchists in the city. At meet ings none were more rabid in their utterance than he and it is now alleged he would thus induce others to echo his sentiments and then report to the police All this evidence was laid before the mayor and as a result an order was is sued to day suspending Nordrum rending an investigation of his alleged treachery.

A Frtnccmaa aud Ria Tunica A Frenchman in Siam has recently written to a French sporting paper an account of his experience with turtles as beast* of burden. He bought two big fellows for $10 each, aid harnessed them together by means of an elaborate wire and chain arrangement. Then he hitched them to an eighteen-foot rowboat in a neighboring harbor, got into the boat, and let the turtles go. They started off with a rush that upset every thing in the little craft, including the Frenchman, and made for the open sea at the rate of speed of a man walking fast. They paid no attention to the rein* with which the Frenchman tried to guide them. After four hours of vain tugging and pulling the Frenchman was obliged lo cut loose from them in order to keep within sight of land. Tne last he saw of his twenty-dollar turtles, as he rowed back to land, they were still forging anead in their double harness. He will repeat the experiment shortly in an inland lake where the turtles cannot get away from him He is confident that a little training would mske any big turtle a cheap and sufficient traction power in the water._ I was persuaded by a friend to try “Salvation Oil” for neuralgia and headache I found it a great relief after a few ap plications.
