In the executive sessions the senate, it is expected, will consider the nominations of General Morgan, to be commissioner of Indian affaire; Dr. Dorchester, to be superintendent of Indian schools, and ex-G jvernor Warmoth, to be collector of customs at New Orleans, all of which are sub lect to controversy. THS £ ALLOT BOX CABS. Iii FOR SETTLEMENT THE PRESEDEKT ISSUES THE PROCLAMATION 0FElfl» THE SIODI RESERVATION. Washington, Feb. IO.—The journal of Thursday’s proceedings was read and although the democrats did not demand the detailed reading of that document, they insisted upon the yea and nay vote upon its approval. It was approved, yeas 149, nays lt the speaker counting a quorum. The j urn a1 of Fridays proceedings containing no ruling by the speaker on the point of counting a quorum was approved.    * Mr. Henderson, of Illinois, presented a conference report of a bill to remove snags, etc , from the Missouri river and it was agreed to. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, reported from the committee on rules a new code of rules, which the house proceeded to consider. Mr. Cannon explained the provisions of the code He criticized the rules that previously governed the house. In the last congress, he said, the business of the people piled up on the calendars, and not five per cent of that business had been considered by the house. Almost as mud time had been given to the obstruction of the minority as to the cm sider&tion of the business of sixty millions of people. He defended the proposed change, prohibiting the speaker from enertaining dilatory motions He denied that the proposed rule was tyranical, but if it was then it, was a tyranny sustained by the majority of the house Discussing the rule permitting the speaker to count a quorum, he said if the democrats wauted to go to the country as against the principle contained rn the rule, the republicans were ready to meet them and let the people choose. Cannon then proceed to review the other charges in the code, maintaining their directness and arguing their effect would be to f»cihiate the transaction of the business of tho people. Mr. Mills, of Texas, said the proposed code would reverse legislative action and run back upon the track upon which the government had been running forward for a century. The great < bject of the government, as proclaimed by the declaration of independence, was to secure inalienable rights to the citizen. The minority had asked for Tules, but for rules which, while providing for a pro ceedure of business, would preserve and protect the rights of the minority Mr. Bayne, of Pennsylvania, justified the committee on rules in bringing in tho proposed code, arguing it would facilitate the transaction of business and pre vent the minority from nullifying the will of the msjorily of the representatives of the people Mr. Blount, of Georgia, made an argument in opposition to In proposed rules, dwelling with especial antagonism upon the clause macing one hundred members a quorum in tho committee of the whole. Pending discussion the house adj named. ins SENATE Among the petitions presented and referred was one from Indianapolis board of trade asking for repeal of the interstate commerce act Also petitions from Mississippi and Georgia praying for passing a national law to secure the right of bu lf rage and for the enforcement of the flfieenth amendment to the constitution Am >ng bills making appropriations for public buildings and placed on the calen darwere the following: Sterling, Illinois, •50 010; Stillwater, Minnesota, $100 000 Among the bills passed were the following: Providing a time and place for holding the United States district court in South Dakota; in relation to the arrest of offenders against the United States escaping from one district or state to an other; the senate bill appropriating $800,-000 for a site for a public building at New Orleans The bill to provide a temporary government for Oklahoma was taken up and Plumb offered an amendment to include within the boundaries of the territory the public land strip known as “No Man s Land.” Plumb admitted this is a tract of la"d a hundred and twenty-five miles from Oklahoma, but argued, nevertheless, that the jurisdiction of the new territory should be extended over “No Man s Land.” Mr Platt argued against the amendment, as did also several others. Finally the question was taken on it and the vote was yea3, 14; Days, 18—no quorum. After a call of the roll and ascertainment of the presence of a quorum the bill was laid aside and Blair a educational bill taken up. After B air had spoken two hours tho bill went over until to-morrow and the vice president I rid before the senate a message from the president on the subject of the recent negotiations with the Sioux Indians and recommending an immediate appropriati in to carry out the recommendation of the commission; referred The following senate bills were taken from the calendar and passed:    Appro priating 1500 OOO for a public building at Si lux City, Iowa; $200 OOO for a public building at Cedar Rapids, Iowa: to amend and alter the act of July 16, 1888, authorizing the construction of a rail road, wagon and f oot passenger bridge aero s the Miss ssippi river at Clinton, Iowa, (extending fv>r two years the time for beginning and finishing the work); amending the act authorising the construction of a wagon and foot passenger bridge across the Mississippi river at Lyons. Iowa. After an executive session the senate adjourned._ CONGRESS THIS WEEK. A LIM* Tut BstWMi For ak ar and MtPUraoa. Washington, Feb IO —The house committee on the ballot box forgery heard a number of witnesses Again to day. Senator Stockbridge, of Michigan, denied having signed the forged paper. Senator McPherson, of New Jersey, made a similar statement. Having re ferred to the matter as a conspiracy, Mr. Tamer asked McPherson if he knew! anythiog of a conspiracy in that co -nection. He replied when a gentleman h*d abundant opportunity to ascertain the falsity of such a charge, but hastened instead to give it to the world, it might ba regarded as a conspiracy. Governor Foraker asked if it would not depend on circumstances under which the paper was procured and the apparent proi f to support its character McPherson replied that as the paper if genuine, would ruin public men, ana properly so, they should have been con suited when it was possible to do so by traveling four or five miles His first impulse on reading the publication had been to have every man connected with it arrested within forty-tight hours. Governor Foraker—‘ Hadn’t you net ter do it yet, senator? The courts are still open.’’ McPherson—“I don’t know, Halstead got down in the dirt a* d rolled over in his humiliation and attempted to remedy the wrong which changes the situation somewhat."

It is the intention of the committee on rules to call it up as early as possibly, and to ask the house to limit debate so that final action on the subject may be reached within two or three days. While there are many features of the new rules that are obnoxious to the democrat*, it is not probable that Samuel J. BtBdill’s DtMrmlsfd Flibt tor Life. Washington, Feb.

He was worse than usual on Thursday ard Friday last and was depressed in spirits, but is at present brighter and more cheerfvl. He had several attacks of chills during the week, and these, in his enfeebled condition, completely prostrated him and prevented him from siding up any longer.

The house committee on Indian affairs to-day considered the senate j lint reso Washington, Feb. IO.—The president to day issued the proclamation opening the Sioux reservation. After setting foMh the provisions of the act of March 2, 1889, the proclamation says: Satisfactory proof having been presented that the acceptance and consent of the different bands of the Sioux nation has been ob tained in the form required, now, therefore, I, Benjamin Harrison, president of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested, do hereby make known and proclaim the acceptance cf said act by the different bands of the Sioux nation of Indians and consented thereto by them, &B required by the act, and said act is here by declared to be in full force and effect, subject to all the provisions, conditions, limitations and constrictions therein contained. All persons will take notice of the provisions of said act and the condition*, limitations and restrictions therein contained and be governed accordingly. I furthermore notify all persons to particularly observe that by said act certain tracts or portions r t the great reservation of the Sioux nation in <he territory of Dakota are set apart as separate and permanent reservations for the Indians receiving rations and annul ties at the respective agencies there in named. That any Indian re ceiving and an ti tied to rations and annuities at either of the agencies mentioned in this act at the time the same shall take effect but iesid-ing upon any portion of said great restrv ation not included in either of the eepar ate resetvatioDS herein established, may at his option within one year from the tsm« which this act shall take effect ar d within one year after he has been noti fled of his said right of option in such manner as the secretary of the interior shall direct, by recording his selection with the proper agent at the agency to which he belongs, have the allotment to which he would be otherwise entitled on one of the said separate reservations upon the land where such Indian rn ty reside. That each member of the Pones tribe of Indians who may occupy in part the old Ponca reservation may be entitled to allotments upon said old Ponca reservation in quantities as therein set forth, and when allotments to the Ponca tribe of Indians and to such other Indians as a1 .'talents are provided for by this act, shall have been made upon that portion of said reservation which is de scribed in the pct entitled “an act to ex tend the northern boundary of the state of Nebraska" approved March 28 1882 The president shall, in pursuance of sa d act, declare the Indian ti Ie extinguished to all lands described in said act not so allotted hereunder and thereupon ail of said land not so allotted and iueluded in said act of March 28 1882 shall be open to settlement as provided in this act Protection is guaranteed to such Indians as may have taken allotments either within or without said separate reservations under the provisions of the treaty within the great, Sioux nation, concluded April 29, 1868; and provision is made in said act for the release of all title on the part of said Indians receiving rations and annuities on each of the separate reservations, to lands described in each of the other separate resei va-tions, and to confirm in the Indians entitled to receive rations at each of said separate reservations; respectively to their separate reservations; respectively to their separate and exclusive uss and title and interest pf every name and nature secured to the different bands of the 8ioux nation by said treaty of April 29 1868, and said release shall not t ffect the title of any individual Indian to his separate allotment of land not included in any said separate reservation, nor any agreement heretofore made with the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad company, or the Dakota Central Railroad company.

Chamberlain, 8. D., Feb. IO —The loud report of a cannon this afternoon startled the crown cf people camped here awaiting an opportunity to get upon the Sioux reservation lands, which iurned out to be the signal for the town site boomers who were secreted in the heavy timer in American Island to get upon coveted bottoms in the west side of the river Immediately representatives of the various combinations sent here for the purpose of securing this    tract were in motion and teams with loads of lumber starlet on a dead run across the river, but it was evident plainly the local town site bocm-eis had secured aa important advantage by reason of thtir closer proximity to the lands. It was a grand sight, viewed from the high bluffs, where several thousand people had garnered lo see as many more take part in this exciting event The Indian police, numbeiing nearly one hutidred, had been placed as a guard t: prevent any premature invasion, but they s>ood dazed and helpless as they viewed tile great and irresisiable rush for the reservation. The most novel sight was the moving of a large building, i.nder which had baen placed heavy tim hers and wheels. This, like ether wagons, was pulled across the river by galloping horses. It look but a few minces for several sections on the valuable bottom to be literally covered with claimants and it will take a score of lawyers to solve the problem as to who are the rightful owners. The local townsite boomers undoubtedly secured an advantage over the other organized boomers by a few minutes, but among the boomers are a number who intend to secure homestead filings if po'sible, which will complicate the matter to such an extend as will result in a protracted legal struggle. While this rush was going on for the bottom lands many other intending settlers rush'd promptly into the uplands and began at once the erection cf hoes s and these prepared to defend their rights as against later settlers, determinedly guarding against an in vision of their lands. United S ates Marshal Fry and Indian Agent Anderson, assisted by depu its and Indian police were soon at work v gorously attempting to eject the invaders The forces at their disposal are entirely inadequate for the requirements of the occasion and while many were notified and escorted across the river, there was not a largd enough force to keep them there aud they quickly returned to their claims. To-night the settlers encamp on their claims. If it should transpire that the proclamation did not name a fu ure day for the opening of the claims of settlement would undoubtedly hold good regardless of the feet claimants were ej< c cd, The new land office will be organized at once aud bein run ning order by the time filings will be tendered by tee settlers The land is ss yet unsurveyed and the settlers f rn the present have to secure squatters rights There were a number of smashups in the rush blit as vet no fatalities* have bien reported The city is in a great upro r to-night. Bells are ringing whistles blowing and cannons boc ming By morning the appearance of the reservation for many miles in every direction will have undergone a great transforms tion. The settlers who have lumber on the grounds are erecting houses by the light of lanterns. The morning sun will shine on scores of new houses, many of them in grouts on the new town plot on the west side of the river. BY A BURSTING BOILER MCHAM) B BLEB AND JOSEPH BEED KET A TERRIBLE DEATH AT DUBUQUE. No Change at Des Moines—Sunday at the Capital—The FL Madison to Be Again Sold—General Iowa News. Special to THS Hawk-Eye. Dubuque, Feb. IO.—A boiler fine col. lapsed at the Standard Lumber ccm pany’s mill at 8 o’clock this morning, and poured forth a volley of steam and water from either end. Fireman Richard Bigler was thrown out of the room and fell two hundred feet away on the ice in the river. He was scalded about the head, face and breast, and had a leg broken, and will die. Engineer Joseph Reed was at the back end of the boiler and was blown into the corner and terribly scalped. A crew from a passing Burlington train came to the assistance of the men. Reed died at IO 39 He had been mentioned as a candidate for steamboat inspector and was a very able engineer. The boilers, which were of steel, forty -wo inches in diameter, with four flues eleven inches in diameter and twenty-four feet in length, were put in two or cnree years ago, and were considered perfectly safe, having a guaranteed ten aile strength of seventy thousand pounds They were tested last fall after the close of the sawing season to one hundred and eighty pour ds cold water pressure. The safety valve was set to one hundred and ten pounds, but this morning the boilers were carry ing only eighty pounds, as the planing mill alone, and not the saw mill, was in operation.

Smith said if they were moved anywhere tion east afforded what they regard as reasonable time for discussion. Probably by the time the rules are dis posed of the committee on elections will have reported the contested election case of Atkinson vs. Pendleton from West Virginia, and action upon that case will consume the remainder of the week, with a possible exception in favor of the unfinished business, which is the bill to extend the circulation of the national banks. There are indications that the Blair educational bill, which ha3 the right of way in the senate, will run through the week, and perhaps a longer period before a vote is reached upon it. The author hat not yet finished his speech, and a number of senators are ready to follow him with aet speeches on the same subject. The bill in charge of Senator Platt, to organza a territorial government for will probably be disposed of hours, and any odd ends Dakota intersects said boundary line, thence east along said boundary line five miles, thence due south five miles, thence due west ten miles; thence due north to said boundary line, thence due east along said boundary line to the place of begin ning. The same is continued in a state of reservation so long as it may be needed A Grand Seram bl* for Deair abt* Land I the Newly Opeatd Territory. Pierre, S D , Ftb IO —The news here this afternoon tha* the president had issued the proclamation opening the Sioux reservation was received with tke wildest kind of excitement. Cannons boomed and digs waved from every prominent building. Immediately after the ntwa reached here there was a grand stampede for tke reservation by the boom ers and settlers who had been patiently waiting fo: the proclamation for weeks. Across the river from Pierre is located the famous Mile Square, on which is situated the city of Fort Pierre. It was this Mile Square the settlers first rushed for, but as the military headquarters are stationed there and as no orders had been received from headquarters to allow settlers to cross me river, trouble Immediately ensued. The boomers had about fifty wagons loaded wi*h supplies which fol lowed with a number of wagons loaded with ready-made houses. These boomers proceeded straight across the river to the number of about one thousand and headed by Hon. J. W. Shinn, ex member of the Ohio legislaturt. The military authorities saw the boomers approaching and immediately a solid column formed along the bank of the river. As the boomers approached they were told to halt, but instead of doing so, the column swung around and two coin rn is then stood horizontal and then faced each other. Co’onel Tassen in command of the soldiers then came forward and parlayed wirh the boomers and told them they would not be allowed to cross until further orders were received from the interior department. At first the boomers insisted they would cross but finally were compelled to cross back to the city The situation down the river is more serious. About a mile east of the city was located another boomers camp and there they were more deeper ate. Just at the time the news was received here the guards all along the river were changed and fresh guards did not leave Fort Pierre until a few minutes after the new shift had come into town. As a consequence the East Pierre crowd were in the resevre before they were noticed and had already commenced to settle. The regulators soon in hot pursuit and succeeded in capturing all but a few of the boomers Many were put in the guard house at Ft. Pierre. Up to the present time no orders have been received by the officers in command to allow any one to encroach up the reserve. Each minute adds to the horde, and the bank of the river ta* night is literally lined with men, houses and teams. Some have a county organ!za tion with - officers and records and nearly all armed. There probably will serious trouble after the opening of the lards between three bands, as a1- Tit* Iowa Boom In Sass ton Afternoon. Special to THI Hawkeys. Des Moines, Ftb IO —The situation in the house practically remains unchanged. The conference committee are apparently as far apart as ever. To the proposition made by the democratic com uiiUte on Saturday, the republican com mittee have proposed a counter propoei non which gives the republicans the speaker and the first choice of c immittees, than the democrats two committees, the republicans then to have a ch ice and so alternate. The re mainder of the proposition leaves the democratic proposition unchanged Lead ing democratic members express the opinion that the proposition will not be agreed to This would apparently leave matters as far f om a compromise as ever were it not f >r the fact that the sides are conferring. Members upon both sides also freely express the opinion that the dead ock will end about Wednesday.

The defendants dispensed cider and a drink k^own as ‘ B.

The court h fids that the law makes the fact of a government license in one’s possession prima facie evidence of intent to violate the state law, except ia cases of registered pharmacists and as ’he defendants in the case did not come under that class the j idgment of conviction is affirmed. •129.000 It is understood that the purchasers are backed by Engli-h capita], and the factories will all be controlled by the trust.

IO.—The house chamber yesterday was by no means de serted. Although it was the Sabbath day, members were bere attending to corresponderce, consulting on the situs tion and conjecturing as to the probable turn events would take on Monday or Tuesday. Among republicar s the feeling was one of quiet confidence ; the members on the west side of the house were per Meetly undismayed and good naturedly were awaiting the outcome. Among the democrats it was a little different. They seemed just as determined to stand out for the speakership aa the republicans, but instead of being a good natured cheerful company they were quite otherwise;they conversed without aiders in a cold, reserved manner, they seemed unwilling to have anything to say on any matter and instead of appearing cheerful and hopefully expect ant were morose and seemed to have no bright prospect opening out before them. This was the mo d of the members all day Sunday and all day to-day up to the opening of the session. The general opinion among both parties was that Monday and Tues day were to be critical days, that organization would take place then or the war would go on hotter than ever. The discussion on pairing has had a good effect. Up to that time if any members wanted to get away under any pretext whatever, they found no difficulty in getting paird, but now matters are somewhat changed. No democrat wants to pair now except in case of necessary sickness. What is more the members who have gone home are getting back in anticipation of a breaking of the pir-ing agreement, and this morning it was said that every republican was in town. However, as some of the other side were still away it was impossible to have a vote of 50 to 50 A Stat# Wife#** Arrested Jarl. Speolal to Th* Havk-Eyb. Centerville, lo., Feb. IO —The trial of Dr. W.
