Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - February 1, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: June, 1S39.]BURLINGTON, IOWA. SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY I, 1890. [Peick: 15 Cents pee Week. L few THE H6D3E OF REPRESENTATIVES MADE A HEN OF HISSES ANO GROANS. Speaker Reed’s Kalians Continue to Meet With Democratic Howls and Republican Cheers — Congressional Gossip and Notes* Washington, Jan 31. — When the house met the clerk, proceeding in the usual manner to read the abridged journal (omitting the detailed vote) Bland, of Missouri, demanded the reading of the document in full, and this was ordered by the speaker, it was not completed until 12:50, and immediately McKinley, of Ohio, moved that the journal be approved, and on that motion demanded the previous question. Mr. Springer interjected a motion to adjourn, saying he did so to enable the committee on rules to bring in a code of rules. The Speaker—The gentleman is not in order in speaking on the motion to ad-3 'mm. Mr. Springer—There are no rules for the house. The Speaker—There are rules for the house. Mr. Springer—Where are they ? The Speaker—The rules that govern parliamentary assemblies, and these rules most distinctly declare that a motion to adjourn is not debatable, of which the gentleman is perfectly aware The motion to adjourn was lost, yeas 135, nays 162, and tne question recurring on the demand for the previous question, the yeas and nays were ordered. The democrats again pursued their policy of not voting, and the speaker oace more pursued his method of jotting down the names of members present and not voting, The speaker then declared the demand for the previous question carried, yeas 160, nays none, amid loud protests of the democrats. The Speaker—1The previous question is ordered and the question is on the approval of the journal. Mr. Bynam, of Indiana, moved to adjourn, but the speaker declined to recognize him and again put the motion on the approval of the journal. Mr. Bland demanded the yeas and nays, (which were ordered,) and pending this moved to adjourn. But the speaker was deaf to this motion, which called for the declaration from Springer that this was tyranny simple and unadul-tered, and tho further declaration from Bland that it was an outrage and that the house could not be in a more demoralized condition than the speaker. The roll was then called on the approval of the Journal and the old tactics were brought into play. The vote completed the speaker handed the list to the clerk to record as present and not voting. Mr. Bynum appealed from the decision of the chair. The speaker replied that it was a question of fact which could not be appealed from. The vote stands yeas 161, nays nothing, accordingly the Journal is approved. The fiercest storm of the three days’ battle burst upon the house. Mr. Bynum, of Indiana, rushed to the front and demanded the door on a question of personal privilege and proceeded to arraign the speaker He said in substance:    “The gentlemen on the other side may stand here and sustain this arbitrary, outrageous, damnable ruling of the speaker, but so far as I am concerned; so far as the people I represent are concerned, we shall not be silenced or gagged on this floor. You, sir, have violated more than any man on this floor the parliamentary rules and practices. You may consummate what you have undertaken, you have tho power, backed by a mob on the floor of this house. [Cheers on the democratic side; hisses from the republicans.] Tho people of this couuntry, sir, have spoken through the press in condemnation of these proceedings which will bury you, sir, beyond hopes of resurrection. This proceeding is in keeping with the practices of your party; it is in keeping with your action when you stole the presidency; it is in keeping with proceedings of the republican party in the state of Montana. Mr. Boutelle, of Maine, protested against Bynum continuing. The Speaker (sarcastically)—The gentleman has risen to the statement of a question of personal privilege and he is now stating it. [Laughter.] Mr. Bynum, resuming, said:    “I dis pute the right of the speaker to record in the journal any direction or order that I or any other member may not make. It is a journal of the proceedings of the houso and not a journal of the proceed ings of the speaker. You have gone too far. You have usurped power. You have mutilated the record of the house in order to carry out a scheme you have deliberately gone to work to carry out. No tyrant ever ascended the throne who did not attempt to make some feeble show of title to amuse the people when he had gained possession of the kingdom. You, sir, have attempted to vamp up some feeble show to sustain your outrageous rulings, to amuse the galleries and the people, while you consummated and carried out the behest of the chairman of the re publican national committee to turn out the representatives of the people elected and put in men who not only were not elected, but who do not command the respect of the constituents they seek here to represent. Now proceed in this matter, but, in the language of the immortal Emmett, we propose ‘to dispute every inch of ground, bum every blade of grass, aud the last intrenchment of liberty shall be our grave.’ The democratic side burst into cheers, answered by derisive laughter by the re publicans. The speaker stood calm and collected, and above the uproar was heard Springer’s voice, moving an ad joumment. Partial order being restored, the speaker ruled the motion not in order, and made a brief statement: “The house will not allow itself,4* amid the speaker, “to be deceived by epithets. Whatever has been done here has been done in the face of the world and is subject to its discriminating judgment. The proceedings of this house, so far as the chair is concerned, have been orderly, [democratic hisses] suitable, and hi con form!tv to the rules of parliamentary law, [renewed hisses] and the refusal of the chair to entertain a motion to adjourn at this juncture is strictly in accordance therewith. [Democratic groans] There is no possi bility by which orderly methods of par Hemen tary procedure can be used to stop legislation. dented rule [correcting himself] break over a rule [applause and laugnter on the democratic side] in regard to the reading of the journal, wherf a gentleman steps down to the front amid the applause of his associates, and announces he intends to make opposition in every direction, it becomes apparent to the house and community what his purpose is. Ii is then the duty of the speaker to take, under parliamentary law, a proper course in regard to such matters, and in order that there may not be any misunderstanding as to whether or not it is the wish and desire of the majority of the house the question of appeal from the refusal of the chair to entertain a motion, will be presented to the house. Mr. Spinger desired to the heard on appeal, but the speaker recognized McKinley who moved to lay the appeal on the table. In vain did Springer protest, the speaker merely remarking the house would now vote on the question whether it desired to hear the gentleman from Illinois. The speaker ordered the call of the roll, but the voice of the clerk was drowned by that cf Springer who, as well as could be heard in the confusion said he never known the time in the history of the country when the speaker, when an appeal was taken, refused to hear debate He denied the right of tbe speaker or the house to gag the members in this manner. The appeal was then laid upon the table, yeas, 162; nays, none—the speaker as usual counting the requisite number to make a quorum. Mr. Springer moved to adjourn but the speaker said the decision of the chair had been sustained by the house and refused to entertain the motion. The speaker thereupon recognized Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, to speak upon the Smith-Jackson election case. Mr. Crisp raised a question of consideration and the speaker replied that the house had already decided to consider the election case, notwithstanding Crisp’s protest that the qustion decided the previous day was not binding to-day. The speaker refused to put the question to the house. Mr. Crisp appealed, declined to entertain democratic hisses. Mr. Crisp asked for speaker gave the vote taining the ruling of dilatory motions Mr. Crisp protested that the speaker had no right to determine his motives, to which the speaker replied that he thought them perfectly apparent. Mr. Dalzell said Crisp was out of order and Crisp replied: “I have a right to present this proposition to the speaker and the country so it may be understood you are pursuing further that course you seem to have entered upon of disregarding all customs, practices and parliamentary rules. Mr. Dalzell then proceeded to speak but the uproar continued until Crisp advised his colleagues they should give the election case a quiet hearing so they might pass upon it intelligently. This advice was acted upon ana at the conclusion of Dalzell’s argument the house adjourned._ D If MO CHATS CAUCUS. but the speaker the appeal amid reasons, and the of the house, sus-the chair against the and the the They Dwldi to Hoop Up the Pi slit— Bandon’* Advt**. Washington, Jan. SI.—A call for a caucus of democratic representatives was circulated for signatures to-day and the caucus was held to-night. It was well attended. A letter from Randall was read, in which he urged the continuance of the fight, advised the members of the minority to stick to their guns and lose no opportunity to keep the republicans from attempting to pass on any contested election cases in the absence of the new code of rules. Randall urged the renewal of the filibustering tactics, claiming they were right and proper under the circumstances. He demanded that democrats should prevent any legislation until the new code was brought in, and also advised against the plan of leaving the house in a body. Carlisle told the caucus that there had been only three meetings of the committee on rules. He never received a notice in writing of meeting but was sent for by Reed met him, McKinley and Cannon in speaker’s room. They discussed rules for about an hour and have had but two meetings since, in the speaker’s room, lasting about twenty minutes each. There has been no meeting since last Monday. Carlisle explained what was contemplaied by the new code and was followed by Crisp and others. While some advised caution in the proceedings, the concensus of opinion favored a con tinuation of the fight. After a long discussion the caucus adjourned, having reached no conclusion excepting an informal agreement the dilatory tactics three days. Carlisle leaders will draw up the country, which will be published in justification of the force of the minority. The subject of securing the intervention of the supreme court to establish the illigal nature of the republican proceedings was broached but no action taken. MB. BLAIITIE’S DUP SORROW. TU* Secretary’* Eldest Daaghlvr Very III aas Not Exported to Live Throne* tho Day. Washington, Jan. 31.—Mrs. Cop-pin&er, the eldest daughter of Secretary Blaine, is very ill and not expected to live through the day. While the doctors have not entirely given up hope, they admit that her death may occur at any moment. Secretary Blaine is almost crushed under the weight of the new eduction. Since Christmas there have been three deaths in the Blaine family— those of Mrs. Blaine’s sister, Mr. Blaine’s brother, and Walker Blaine. It has been deemed advisable to telegraph for the sick lady’s husband. Lieutenant Colonel Coppinger of the 18th infantry, who is now in the west on an inspection tour, and for her brother, Emmons Blaine. These are the only members of the family out of the city. The president learned of the case this morning, and went over to Secretary Blaine’s house to offer sympathy and assistance. The physicians offer no very strong hopes of the patient’s recovery. to continue of the past and other an address to T T TQ-DAFS SESSION AT DES KOINES TAIEX DP VITH'ROLL CALLS AND YAWNS. Governor Larrabee^ Message—A Girl’s Foolish Step—Killed by Faith Core —A Lively Corpse—Minor Iowa News and Items. Special to Tbs Hawk-Kts. Des Moines. Jan. 31.—Promptly at 2:30 Speaker Hotchkiss wrapped on the desk and called the members to order. Prayer was offered by Rev. W. J. Young, brother of the member from Monroe county. After reading of the journal the roll was caUed to verify the pairs and sixteen were announced. The thirty-third roll call was next in order and the vote stood: Hamilton 33, Wilson 33. The members then busied themselves in the answering of their personal correspondence and in reading the large amount of matter Which is always sent to legislators, only showing signs of life when they had to answer to their names. The experience of one member yesterday had * ▼cry good effect in that members stayed in their seats and did not roam around quite as freely as formerly, thus endangering the success of their party. Democratic members, while they feel bound to respect their agreement with reference to tbe representative districts, which they claim are unconstitutionally reported, are busy hunting over old records, making maps and studying figures with a view of introducing a new apportionment bill and airing their pent up eloquence on such an occasion . THE SENATE. The session of the senate this morning was characterized by its brevity. The senators met and finding that the reporters had been ignored with leference to bill files, necessary to keeping printed copies in order, Senator Funk, himself a newspaper man, came to their rescue, and hereafter we will be treated "white” in this connection. The senate is behaving very wisely and not hastening matters at ai'. Under the resolution introduced set Tai days ago members are busy preparing Mils and handing them to the secretary to be numbered and printed. Senator Ballingall made a discovery this morning which puts a good joke on “somebody.” It seems last session Senator Kelly introduced a bill bearing upon certain requirements and regulations with reference to guaranty companies. The bill in the usual order of business was refused to the judiciary committee and by them reported back favorably, but was ignored by the sifting committee. The genial senator from Wapello prepared a similar bill for introduction, but or. closer investigation, found that the very poinis desired to be covered had been incorporated into the laws of the state by the twenty-first general assembly in 1886, and he now wants to know what became of the copies of the acts of the twenty-first general assembly which were in possession of the judiciary committee of the twenty-second general assembly when they recommended favorably a bill already on the statute books. To-day did not develop any disposition on the part of the members to break tho deadlock. Republican members feel they have the backing of the people at home, and if the large number of letters received by every member, with the expressions contained therein, are any indication of the feeling, they would not be safe to go home if they did otherwise than they are doing at present. The republicans are patiently waiting for some proposition to emenate from the democrats. They feel they have done enough proposing for this session and are now waiting an opportunity to do a little “considering.” Ever since the temporary organization was effected, the “dictator” Fred Lehman has kept dark and if he still cracks the democratic whip it is without the hall of the house. Just after the organization he expresed an opinioh, so we are creditably informed, that the dead-lock would last “two weeks.” Whether this is the amount of democratic stubbornness in stock or not cannot be deteamined until the time comes. Chairman Dunn and Secretary Lee, of the democratic state central committee, are however, on the ground and are very careful that democrats are in their seats and that they do not show any disposition to change the present strained condition of affairs. However an impression is gaining ground that before long a spirit of restlessness will sweep over their ranks and something drop._ DEADLOCKS ARS FASHIONABLE. Matter The Bewater* Set Bismarck, N.

Correspondence of The Hawk-Eye. Des Moines, Jan. SI.—One week ago anyone should have suggested to a senator the idea that any member of that honorable body would participate in a deadlock, the idea would have been treated with derision and contempt; yet on the first opportunity when the dighted senators have entered into any meet ag where there really could be a contest, the first thing done was to tie mat ten up with as firm a knot as ever the louse is tied. Of course a triangular 1 ight is one in which the chances are that it will be prolonged, for not a single one of the trio will withdraw. Each has lopes that the supporters of some one of the other two will become weary and come oyer to him, thus bringing yictory to perch upon his banners, but it is too often the case that they ell hang on, and hen all that can be done is to stop vot-ng and get to work on the outside. But the senators are most astonished at the way things were ast night. They came here expecting that the nominations would be settled in about a half hour or so, and then so much would be done. It had been expected there would be a little time spent upon the Fort Madison wardenship, but if anyone had suggested thirteen ballots ana then no result, the suggestion would not have received very favorable recog nition. But it seemed fated to torn out that way. The forces of the three main candidates held fast and not one of them could gain the necessary votes for an election. Deadlocks seem to have become quite aa element in Iowa politics, within the past year there have been more of them than were ever heard of before. Beginning with the republican state conven Hon, where twenty-five ballots were required before a nomination was made, there has been quite a series of them. It will be remembered that Senator Wool-son received his nomination only after over three hundred ballots hid bara taken; Representative Lane was named after taking over 1,900 ballots, and other contests of less importance and duration, have been reported down to the attempt to organise the present house. The latest deadlock will have to be fought out in the lobbies, both here and at the homes of the members, and it is safe to sajthatplentFof work will be done be fore any eettiement is brought about. It lenin to notice'the varying degrees of knowledge end ignorance of some sub-jects among the senators- A few daya ago when the resolution forbidding further introduction of bflls was being gained in any way. The honorable senators said they knew of no such body, they had received no information of its convening and could not in any manner consider anything pertaining thereto. So far as the knowledge there expreseed was concerned, there was no house, probably would be none: there was no persons claiming to constitute the membership of a house and hence it had no existence, embryotic or otherwise. But yesterday a great change came over the men of dignity, the men who could know nothing except under certain circumstances. The matter of arranging for pay was mentioned and an alarming amount of knowledge was spontaneously developed. It is necessary, in order for any pay to be drawn, for the presiding officer of each body to certify to a list of the members and employes of the whole assembly, and as the house is temporarily organized, the members of both houses think it about time to make up the pay roll. Nothing can be drawn, however, until thirty days after the convening of the legislature. Well, the matter was mentioned in the senate and at once one of the members thereof said in order to arrange matters it would be better to have the t wo houses in session at the same time. It was asked what hour would be the proper one, as the house had fixed its time already for meeting to-day. Then these senators who knew nothing of there being such a thing as a house of representatives of the twenty-third general assembly, very readily gave the information that the house had adjourned till IO 30 to day, and in consequence the senatorial session was fixed for the same bour. It is rather interesting to notice while the parliamentary question of what constitutes a quorum has been agitating the national house of representatives a decision directly contrary to that of Speaker Reed was made by Lieutenant Governor Hull yesterday. The matter came up on an amendment by Dodge to a resolution introduced by Bills. The amendment was no* of great importance, nor was the resolution, for that matter, and the senators took no great interest in the matter. On the first vote, taken viva voce, the chair was unable to decide and a division was called for. On the senators rising to be counted there were nine voting one way and eleven the other. The chair promptly said no quorum was present and no further business could be transacted. On a motion to adjourn, with no more members really present, but all of them voting, the vote was more than twenty-five and as the motion to adjourn was lost the chair said a quorum was now present and the question to be considered was the amendment by the senator from Des Moines. Lieutenant Governor Hull, of course, knew there were then twenty-five present, but he was guided in making his ruling solely by the number voting, which is rather different from Speaker Reed’s decision. But there is a differ ence of affairs apparently between con gross and our legislature. Here it requires a majority of all the members elected in each house to pass a bill, while in congress it requires only a ma jority of those voting to pass a bill, and of course nothing can be done unless a quorum is present, consisting of a ma jority of all the members elected. You see thus in congress it is much easier to get a bill through, sometimes, then in the legislature of the state, for if there are five votes for a bill and only one against in the house consisting of one hundred members the bill will be detested. But Hull and Reed differ ma tcrialiy as to ascertaining if a quorum is present. He will stick to the generally understood method that a member cannot be conaidered present unless he manifests his presence by some legislative act, such as voting. While Reed claims it to be within the power of the presiding officer to decide members present, if he sees them on the floor or at their desks, and can thus fill out a quorum though less than half the number of members elected are voting. Only one thing is done in the morning party caucuss now and that is to have the roll called in order to see that all members are present and reports may be received from the sick members in order that the pairs may be arranged. There is no formulating of plans, nothing new to be offered, so the meetings are of short duration and are a mere precautionary measure. The republicans always meet in committee room No. I, and the democrats in the speaker’s private room The members to day were bright and cheerful, anticipating nothing in the way of a conflict and presenting themselves merely to be counted and ready to vote for sustaining party supre macy. Yesterday in the senate when Cleveland presented the petition of the Shelby County Farmers’ Alliance addressed to him personally demanding his vote for Larrabee for United States senator. Gatch. rose to a question of order and asked if it was the proper thing for members to introduce petitions addressed to them personally and not to the senate. The ruling of the chair was that the sen ators themselves should judge of the propriety of action and they could do as they pleased. Gatch said he had received a petition of a nature similar to the one presented, but had regaraed it as private correspondence and hense had not presented it. Mesewey said about the same. This moning the Leader ac cused these two senators of suppressing petitions, so in open session Gatch read the correspondence he had received on the matter, and it was shown plainly that be had received no instructions or request to present the matter to the sen ate and as a consequence he had not handed it rn. He also said that any pet! tion presented by any constituent or any subject or for any purpose consistent with the dignity of the senate and common decency would be presented by him, even if it requested the expulsion of himself from the senate. Mesewey made similar statements and said further that so long as he received petitions addressed to him personally he would not present them to the senate, but would regard them as private correspondence and did not care to be accused of trying to take away the right of petition from any con stituent, republican or democrat. In the house this morning matters be gan in the same old monotonous way. After the report of the committee on pairs was given, showing there were thirteen of them, roll call was taken up The result was as expected, 37 to 37, and so it continued until adjournment. The only thing of importance done in the senate this morning was to adopt the resolution authorizing the secretary of state to furnish to senators copies of such session laws as may be on hand. The senators will now be enabled to furnish some new public documents to their constituents. This morning the minister who offered prayer in the house wss a man something out of the ordinary. He was Rev. Peter O. Matthews, a full blooded Indian of the Talumney tribe of California. He a a private in the Fortieth Iowa in fantry, served through the war and at its close studied for the ministry at Mt Pleasant, Iowa, and Ashtabula. Ohio. In 1874 he entered the Metdodist Episcopal ministry sad is now an evangelist im the service of that denomination. He shows plainly his Indian characteristics in his appearance, but the English he uses is very pure sad classical, as much so ss many educated whites. ago. Yesterday morning Coroner Waterman called upon Dr. Bellinger and the two set out together to make a post mortem examination of the body. When they arrived at the house the door was opened by Phillips himself, who seemed mach surprised to think that he was to be a victim of the physicians attention. He is doing ss well as could be expected, and it is thought that in a few days he will be around again._ A S1BPI FOOLISH STEP* She Trice ie Aucht from rn m ovine Train With Bartons Basalts.

Ontario. Special to Th* Hawk-Eye. Osceola, lo., Jan. 31—George H. Cowles, late a banker here, and later the vice president of the Osceola Bank, which failed in November, 1888, died in Toronto, Ontario, January 24, 1890, and was buried in Omaha last Monday. Mr. Cowles was about forty-two years old, the only son of Dr. Chester Cowles, of Bentons port, Van Buren county, Iowa. where Mr. Cowles was bom and educated, afterwards clerking in a store for a while, until 1869, when he came here and formed a partnership with A. H. Burrows in a private banking business. At the end of four years he bought Mr. Burrows out and continued the business alone until 1886 when he was one of the principle parties in organizing under the incorporated laws of Iowa the Osceola Bank, and continued as its vice president up to its failure in November, 1888. He died with what the doctors call peritonitis, caused by rupture of the gall-bladder. While Mr. Cowles had his faults, yet he was an enterprising citizen, for many years highly esteemed by the good people of this city and county, a man of good habits, of strong personal attachments for his friends, and with a dispo aition to accommodate his patrons. It is a matter of deep regret to many of our people, that he should be called away at this time, while to his aged parents and immediate relatives his loss is irreparable. CRIPP S FIRST VICTIM.

Pell, the broker arrested last night for the part he took in disposing of securities of | the Sixth National bank, was to-day held in $25,000 bail for examination on Thursday next. Clasaon, president of the bank, for whose arrest a warrent was issues at Qte s*me time as was that for Pell, is still at large. The Sixth National bank and the Lenox Hill bank are still closed and at ten o'clock this morning a notice was posted on the door of the Equitable which stated that that bank was closed temporarily. An official statement of the condition of the three banks is expected this evening. Examiner Hepburn to day said the Sixth National Bank would not lose more than $750,000. Of this amount $400,000 was represented by bonds and securities which had already been sold, and the other $350,000 represented checks held against the Equitable and the Lenox Hill banks. President Claasen this afternoon made a statement in which he denied that he was a member of the syndicate which purchased the control of the Sixth National Bank, or that he had ever met ex-President Leland until the sale was completed. He claims it was at the suggestion of Cashier Colson and with consent of the board of directors that he arranged to sell the $650,000 in bonds held by tbe bank and that it was for the purpose of providing more available cash, so that the discount business might be increased, that this step was decided upon.

The directors of the company have settled with their farmer creditors and laborers. Muor Born»9«es-Buffalo** .. Happv A Senator to the fur Pottier***’* IO' Special to The Hawk-Eye. Washington, Jan. SI. — Senator Moody, of South Dakota, is the only one of the senators from the recently admitted states who has been called to pre side over the senate during the present cession of that distinguished and august body Last Thursday afternoon, when Vice-President Morton was called from the senate chamber, he invited Senator Moody to occupy his chair and handed to him the gavel. The honor was unex peeled and therefore all the more marked. The Black Hills man is not a novice in legislation. He knows the rules and precedents of the senate as well as the best of them and made a model presiding officer pro tempore. He is every inch a senator in appearance, and his maimer of handling the business was as that of one unto the manor born. Senator Pettigrew, of South Dakota, is at home in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, looking after his herd of trained buffaloes. He has them trained to eat hay, and employs four teame hauling stacks for them to perform upon. ‘‘Buffalo” Jones, of Kansas, has been here feeding senators, representatives and newspaper men upon buffalo steak; and he grows livid with jealousy when *old that Senator Pettigrew keeps a herd of the best buffalo in the land. The happiest people in the capitol to day are the Iowa men. The organization ol the legislature of Iowa which be tokens the certain election of Senator Allison to succeed himself, delights them all. It is indeed a result upon which the people of the entire country may be con gratulated. As Senator Paddock, of Nebraska, recently said to your corres pondent:    “Senator    Allison is a repre sentative of western men and western ideas. His defeat would have been a calamity to Nebraska and all other west em states, as it would have been to Iowa” Moreover, his re election keeps him in line for the presidency, and his nomination is more likely than that of any man mentioned to-day for that august position.

SI.-The senate select committee on Pacific railroads expects to taka final action on the bills of the Union and Central Pacific debt next week. Tho Union Pacific bill extends for fifty years the time in which the gov eminent debt must be paid and fixes the rate of interest at three per cent.

In the case of both of [|the roads the committee r'ill insist that all the property tfie roads have, whether covered or not by the existing law of tho govern ment. shad be made liable for indebted ness. Under thi3 arrrangement the government will secure a mortgage upon the various branch lines owned by the Union Pacific and built without the govern ment’s aid. A BLUNT ANSWER. Lincoln, Jan. 31.--Governor Thayer to-day addressed a letter to the officers of the Trans Missouri Traffic association, in relation to through rates on cora from Nebraska, in reply to telegrams to the effect that the association would not likely take action The governor tells the officers bluntly they must reduce the rate or there will be trouble all over Nebraska THE GREAT NORTHERN 8t.

IOWA RAILROAD MATTERS. Special tn tun Ha we-Bye Des Moines, Jan 31.—The railroad commissioners have decided the case of H. G Chapman, of Westfield. The only material point involved in the decision is that a crossing is established and the right of landowners to place the crossing upon their farms at a point designed by them. The complaints of Fred against the city of Ft. Dodge, nois Central and Mason City Dodge railroad companies for an elevator company to erect their build ing in such a manner as to obstruct the view of the above roads on Market street in Ft. Dodge and making the crossing decidedly dangerous so that fatal accidents are liable to occur, was decided in favor of the plaintiff. Th* Harlem Spider Knocxe oat Moran of J ere? City* New York, Jan. 31.—The fight for the bantom championship of tee world took place to night near the Penn Sylvania line between Tommy Kelley, the “Harlem spider,” nnd Cappy Moran of Jersey City. Kelley forced the fighting from toe start and knocked Moran down twice in the fourth round Both were badly cut and bruised by that time, but continued to hammer away at each other with a vigor that surprised everyone. In the ninth round Moran put in heavy body blows and Kelly got groggy. In the tenth Kelly was knocked down equareiy and remained on his back eight seconds I to enter, but suddenly jumped up and rushed at | identity Moran. After sharp in fighting Kelley planted a right hander on Moran's neck, fairly knocking him out. Moran had been the champion for a couple of years. Gibraltar Bay, Jan. 31.—Following is the account, beginning with January 12, of the progress of the squadron of evolution: “The utmost courtesy has been extended the officers of our squadron during the last week, and they will leave Gibraltar with pleasant recollections of the munificence of its residents and of British naval officers. To-night Admiral Walker will give a dinner on board the Chicago. “Although it is probable that visits to the galleries of the famous rock have en written up lime and again, it may rot be out of place, in connection with cur visit, to say something concerning taem. The walk through the galleries, which are one above the other, like the fighting decks of an old line-of-battle ship, is two miles long; but we did not go through the upper gallery, permission not being obtainable, nor were we permitted to see the powder magazines. Tfci* seemed to us perfectly absurd, as did also the prohibition of photograph-aoy interesting parts of the rock or ships of war. “The health of the people belonging to the squadron is not as good ae it might be. owing to the prevalence of influenza, which does not seem to be at all on the decrease. The British squadron expects to leave on Tuesday or Wednesday for Port Mahon, Balearic Islands, and thence for Malaga. We leave on Tuesday for Malaga or Carthagena; up to the present moment our destination has not been definitely settled upon.” °aki8 Jan. 31.—The American squadron of evolution will arrive at Toulon early in February and will remain twenty days. The vessels will take on board a fresh supply of provisions there. PARNELL’8 CIRCULAR.
