Established: June, 1839.] BURLINGTON, IOWA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 12, I SSO, [Pkicb: i $ Cents per Week. OI PMC BUILDING. a bill mmmrn $100,000 fob it PASSES THE SEHATE, The New Code of Roles Discussed In the House - Presidential Nominations—Iowa Pensions—General Washington News. Special to The Hawk-Eye. Washington, Feb. ll.—Among other important matters transacted in the senate to-day was the passage, on the motion of Senator Allison, of a bill appropriating $100,000 for a public building at Burlington. The bill will go to the house in a day or so and will undoubtedly be passed. Mr. Hoar introduced a bill to prescribe in part the manner of the election ,ot members of congress and it was referred to the committee on privileges and elections It provides that in all states of the union representatives to congress shall bo elected in and for the districts now prescribed by law un'ii tho apportionment of representatives shall be made by congress according to tho census to be taken in 1890, any law of such state hereafter to be passed to the contrary notwithstanding. At one o'clock the senate resumed the consideration of the bill to provide a temporary government for Oklahoma Pending the question there was an amendment offered yesterday by Plumb to comprise "No Mans Land" within the limits of the proposed territory. After a lenghty discussion the bill went over till to morrow without action on the amendment. The following bills were passed: Tho senate bill appropriating $100,000 for a public building at Burlington, Iowa; and $100,000 for a public building at Beatrice, Nebraska. By Edmunds—Establishing a public school eystem in Utah; also, providing for the inspection of meats for exportation, prohibiting the importation of adulterated articles of food or drink, and authorizing the president to make a proclamation in certain cases. By Pierce—To create an agricultural commission to investigate the present depressed condition of the agricultural interests of the country. The senate bill for the relief of certain se ttlerB on public lands was also passed. It provides for legalizing claims filed du ring the vacancy in the land offices. Mr. Blair then resumed his address on the educational bill, but the senate soon went into executive session and then adjourned. _ IN TUE HOUSE. Tile Debate on tile 1'ropoMd New Lvd* of nnltt Washington, Feb. 12.—Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, called up for consideration the proposed codo of rules and offered a resolution providing that the general debate shall close at one o’clock to-morrow, and that after debate under the five minute rule the previous question shall be considered as ordered at four o’clock to-morrow. Vigorous protests against cutting down the discussion in such short order were made by the democrats, but they were of no effect and Cannon demanded the previous question. Tho demand was rejected by the overwhelming vote of 58 to 149, many republicans voting against it. Mr. Springer immediately claimed the door, but Cannon declined to yield it. He proposed either to close the previous question or at least to get some indica lion as to what time this year the gentlemen on tho other side were willing to close the debate. He demanded the yeas and nays on his demand for the previous question, bm not a sufficient number of members arose to enforce hisldeinand. Cannon Hum yielded tho floor to Springer, who offered a resolution providing that tho goner ai debate shall proceed until adjournment to-morrow, after which tho code shall bo considered under the five minute rule till live o’clock Friday, when the previous question shall be considered as ordered. This resolution was adopted without objection. Mr. Grosvernor took the floor and spoke for the new code. In his opinion the rights of the minority were endod when the minority expressed its opposition to a measure, recorded its votes against it and protested to the country The purposes of the rules instead of vesting power in the speaker would prevent any one man power from ruling over the house as had been the case in the forty-ninth and fiftieth congresses, when the speaker bad declined to recognize the motions for the passage of the tobacco tax bill, the Blair educational bill and general pension bills The democrats were here to day to obstruct legislation. The whole purpose of the democratic /party \>n this floor was to obstruct and impede the representatives of the people from going forward with the business of the people. The republican party was on the side of congress; tho democratic party stood as an obstructionist and nothing else. Tho proposition now made was t4hat the majority should take possession of the responsibility which had been placed upon it by the votes of the people of the country. Ile knew of no plans to rob the treasury. If the attempt were made he would fight it. Mr. Holman characterized the proposed code as a complete revolution of parlia montary procedure and ospecd&lly antagonized the clause providing that one hundred members constitute a quorum in the committee of the whole. He spoke of various occasions upon which the resort to filibustering had boen of benefit to the country and referred with much emphasis to the defeat of the force bill by the minority, under the lead of Randall. Mr Payson defended the code. He reviewed in some detail instances where the minority, by dilatory tactics had defeated the will of the majority. The only rights which the minority had were to havo a fair, free and full discussion, and to offer amendmen cs germane to the pending propositions There the rights of the minority ended. Mr Hatch made war upon the report as an entirety. He was opposed to the report in toto because it was a partisan question, because it came from the republican aide of the house representing the republican party. The republicans acted well in electing Reed as speaker. To-day Reed presented more clearly and fairly than any other man the scheme and purpose and determination of his party. The gentlemen on the other side said the only rights of the minority were to discuss and amend, but as far as the democratic minority was concerned, one of their rights was to protect the public treasury. Mr. Funston suggested the democratic minority should protect the treasury from the democratic sergfjant-at-armst Mr. Hatch replied if the gentleman did not know better than to astert that any man on the democratic side was responsible for the bad action of a subordinate in the sergeant-at-arms Cffioe, he had better ge back to Kansas and stay there. Pending further debate the house took a recess until eleven o’clock to-morrow. gwimi WASHnceTonf wwi Postmaster General Waaaatalter Mi Plaine Hie toneme,. Washington, Feb. ll.—I’oetmaster General Warmaker before the home on postoffice* and post roads to-day discussed fully the proposition in his annual report for the establishment by the government of a limited postal telegraph. He submitted a plan providing for the lease by the government for ten years of wires for YEE carrying on business and for the delivery of teleprams by carriers in the first delivery following the receipt of the telegram. The scheme he insisted was practical and free from objections. Wanamaker proposed a union of the post and telegraph on a basis that would not interfere in any appreciable extent with any existing rights, but would offer incalculable service to the classes not now enjoying the use of the telegraph to any large degree. He asked that he bs directed to negotiate and secure a set of leased wires, such as the great newspapers have from city to city, and that brokers and bankers have connecting their offices and different cities; that, the public might communicate through their business offices (postoffices) from city to city or by messages dropped in their mail boxes. The people had now, he continued, in their business offices, clerks who would soon learn the tick on the machines, carriers who travelled over the same streets traversed by the messenger boys, and stamps for payment (that dispenses with bookkeeping) and all that was needed to build up the service was the authority and a wire. He declared most emphatically such service was the legitimate work of the postoffice And the people were right in stoutly demanding telegraphic facilities at postal stations. Wanamaker then stated the provisions of the bill that nothing in the act shall be so construed as to prohibit any telegraph company from performing the general business for the public as the same is now done. The postal telegraph charges in any on8 state shad not exceed ten cents for messages of twenty words or less, counting address and signatures, nor over twenty-five cents for any distance under one thousand five hundred miles, nor over fifty cents for any greater distance, the rates and rules and regulations to be prescribed by the postmaster general. The bill also provides for the establishment of a system of postal telegraph money orders at a rate not to exceed double the rate now charged, in addition to the double postal telegram charge. THE BALLOT BOX INVESTIGATION. The cross examination of Louis Hadden was continued before the ballot box committee to-day at length. He admitted having paid a sum of money aggregating about $200 to Mrs. Wood, who came to him with letters from her husband This money he procured from Dr. Graydon, who was looking after the interests of the part? in Hamilton county. He said T. C Campbell’s statement that he had never shown the witness a paper with the signatures on was false. Witness did not know there was anything but names on the paper. He did not tell Foraker there wa8 a contract in existence, but that he believed there was written evidence. INGALLS* PRESENT. Saturday last Ingalls’ mail contained a small pink-wrapped box. On being opened the box was found to contain a cartridge with the following inscription in black ink: “Election pills for old cuff, or for Ingalls, from Jackson, Mississippi, Come to see us, old Nut galls." Ingalls was not alarmed at the contents, but both he and the secretary thought it prudent to lay the cartridge carefully away, as there was a poeeibil ity that it might be more destructive than an ordinary cartridge. On examination, however, it proved to be a buckshot cartridge containing nine large buckshot aaa a charge of powder. Even this it was thought was not a particularly pleasant present. The joke may turn out to be a sorry one for the perpetrator, as it is a violation of the postal laws to send explosives through the mails. PENDLETON UNSEATED. The house committee on elections by a strict party vote decided to recommended that the house unseat Pendleton and seat. Atkinson as representative from the first West Virginia district. CONGRESSIONAL G08SIP. Senator Chandler has prepared a bill to regulate immigration into the United States, which is a voluminous and comprehensive measure, and intended to include the best feature of the various bills now pending. Representative Cannon says the resolution submitted in tho house to day by Springer to close the debate on the new code of rules for Friday, was the first proposition from the democrats and was entirely acceptable to him and to the republican side. For an hour and a half this afternoon the Banate executive session listened to speeches in opposition to the confirmation of the nominations of Morgan, to be commissioner of Indian affairs, Dorchester, to be superintendent of Indian schools. A vote will probably be taken at the next executive session. The president now has under consider-tion an agreement recently entered into between the commissioners of the government and the Chippewa Indians for accession of part of their reservation in Minnesota. The ceded lands aggregate about three and a half million acres. he reservation will not be opened until summer, however. CONFIRMATIONS. Robert Adams, Jr., of Pennsylvania, envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to the United States of Brazil now credited to the empire of Brazil); Adolph G Studer, of Iowa, United States consul to Barmen; D.

Mrs. Lolman, in behalf of the women army nurses, also addressed the commit tee in favor of a bill granting pensions to women who served as nurses in the ate war. IOWA PENSIONS.

REPUBLICAN FARMERS AKU UNITED STATES SENATORSHIP, THE Allison Endorsed—The Situation in the House-Senate Proceedings—Shy Democrats—General Iowa News and Notes. The Hawk-Et* Burs att, I Capitol Building, > Des Moines, la., Fee. ll.) In the senate this afternoon was brought out quite well how the republican farmers arc getting aroused. Not long ago a petition was presented from the Neola Farmers’ Alliance protesting against Allison, and to day another petition favoring him gotten up by republicans instead of democrats came from the same source. Another petition of the same nature came in from a different part of the state. As much prominence has been given to the anti-Allison petitions those favoring him have become aroused and have begun to send rn their own ideas in regard to the proper candidate for United States senator. SHY DEMOCRATS. Th«y Tram bl* at a Republican Motion to Appoint a Milams* Committee. Special to The Hawk-Ete. Des Moines, Feb. ll.—The democrats in tho house were quite shy of the resolution introduced by Luke this afternoon. It provided simply that the temporary speaker be authorized to appoint a committee on mileage and to make up a list of members and employes and certify the same to the secretary of state Thr democrats were afraid of some bidden scheme to elect United States senator or do something of the sort and at first opposed its passage, but on being assured there was nothing out of the way in it they finally consented to its passage The resolution was intended to have the statute fully complied with. The provision is that such a list shall be fixed thirty days after convening and that time is about here. THS SITUATION. BvtkttB’a Anima lain.

Wbat wu Dona In th* Houaa Yesterday—A Unique Proposition, Special to The Hawk-Ete. Des Moines. Feb. ll. — Evidently something of importance was expected to happen to-day, for there seemed to be a quiet desire on the part of all the members of the legislature to be here. In the senate, even, where nothing of importance could be done, While everything has been going along smoothly and easily, the influx of absentees was something surprising. Senators Seeds and Clyde have been away from town for about two weeks and they were both on hand to-day, while Senator Bayless. one of the democratic brethren who has been away on an indefinite leave of absence, was on hand as if ready to go to work. Some few were still away during the morning. The republican senators, even though in the majority, are very watchful over the movements both of the members of their party and of the opposition They have signs by which they judge whether anything is on foot or not in the camp of the enemy Some republican members look upon Senator Cassate as a sort of democratic barometer, i'or they say that unless that party is up to some scheme or other Cassatt is not present these days, while somewhat better in his attendance when there is real business to be done. Consequently when Cassatt comes the republicans are ou the alert, and no democratic scheme, however slyly managed, can get through. the house side the feeling seemed to prevail among a good many that something must be done to-day or the matter of settlement would become a bitter and inimical piece of warfare instead of moving along in its easy way as it has thus far. There are men on bulb des just waiting for an opportunity to ight in on the other fellows, and if all bonds of amicable rivalry are done away with the amount of restrained and pent up energy that would be let loose would astonish even those expecting it. To the younger members on both sides this thing of waiting is extremely distasteful, they are here ready to fight actively and are spoiling for a chance to everlastingly hammer the opposition. The mere suggestion of doing away with pairs has had the effect of bringing around all the members, and should they be declared off, should negotiations for cease, the young bloods have all the opportunity desire to sail at their Then the duties of the committees on members would be something that could not be too carefully taken care of aud the whereabouts of every man would lave to be faithfully reported at all times. Such a condition of affairs is not to be wished for, but if the two sides persist in their claims, it will inevitably result that way. At the Tippecanoe Veteran bacquet last night Captain Shipley, one of the republican members of the house, made a unique proposition. He wished every member of the house would resign and a new election be called. Then "the people of Iowa would not send back as half of the house forty five democrats and, five mongrel, godforsaken independents." j That plan, if adopted, would certainly break the deadlock. Soon after nine o’clock the democratic members went into caucus and remained there till af ter 11:30. Something of interest or importance must have been going on during the session. It was quite a noticeable fact that Mr. Ewart, the union labor member from Poweshiek was not with them. He remained in his seat in house chamber, and while there was a source of much curiocity on the part of all familiar with his known party ^filiation since coming here. It is not known whether it was from choice or not that he remained out, but it would seem that just at this period above all others, when the matter of final settlement is to be determined, he should be present in the ranks of one or the other party and be perfectly conversant with the conditions of settlement that are being discussed. It is significant to note in this connection that the last proposition coining from others than republicans, was plainly designated as coming from the democrats. The opening sentence was: “We, the democrats," etc Now it is hardly possible that the democrats would throw over Mr. Swart, but it may be that he has decided to quit caucusing and at least make people guess a little at his intention. The democratic caucus lasted until about twelve o’clock. The matter under consideration was a new proposition. It aroused considerable- discussion and took a long time for adoption. In short it gave the democrats speaker and first assistant dark and conceded to the republicans all other offices. Of committees the republicans can have first choice of three and the rest to be alternately divided. The republicans went into eau cub at 1:80 to consider the matter, but as there was not time enough to give a thorough consideration action was deferred until after the dote of the session of the day. They were willing to consider the proposition, but they wanted suffldent time to carryon their deliberations. It was not expected that much would be done in the house session for the democrate wanted to give time for the consideration of their proposition and tile republicans wanted time for their caucus. Dm democratic proposi tion goes farther than any made so tor and it will take the best planning on the republican side to forma'ate one which! will meet with as much favor. In full, it was as follows: The democratic members of the conference commit lee, by authority of their; caucus submit to the republicans the following arrangement and allotment of the officers, and caucus of the house viz: I. The democratic party to have speaker and first-assistant clerk. The republican party to have speaker protein, chief clerk, second assistant clerk, organizing clerk, enrolling clerk, file clerk, bill clerk, assistant postmistress,sergeant-at-arms, doorkeeper, five assistant doorkeepers, two janitors, three paper j folders, eight pages, 2 The Republicans to have first choice of committees and to choose two committees the democrats to have second choice and to choose one committee, remaining committees to be divided by the alternate choice of each, the party choosing committees to have a majority of one upon each committee chosen including chairman, either party to have the right, if wished, to select the chairman and membership of committees alloted. 3 All investigating and special committee.^ to be equally divided unless otherwise agreed upon. 4 The same committees to have clerks as had them in the twenty-second general assembly. 5. The division of a committee provided for to be made by a committee c imposed of five members of each party, to be chosen by the respective caucuses. In the house session only four pairs were announced and a recess was taken to allow the republicans time to consider the proposition. No conclusion was reached and the house was called together again in an hour and roll call began, the vote standing 46 to 46. Only two ballots were taken and the house adjourned. Both parties at once went into caucus._ Pwa 9tvpra«ne Court. Special tc Th* Hawk-Ry*. Des Moi*- es, Feb. ll.—Supreme court business: Dovover va.

A B0RR1BLETRAGH)Y. A FEMALE POLITICAL PEB0HE1 DI SHEBA SKIPPED SAIED AHD FLOSSED, Befop of Noble Birth She Commits Suicide From Shame and Fear— Other Female Political Prisoners Follow Her Example. New York, Feb. ll.—An evening paper published a dispatch from Paris which states that a cipher message has just been received by a Russian refugee in that city dated December 28, which gives the details of a horrible tragedy in the political prison at Kara, eastern Siberia. Nadyda Sibida, of noble birth and a teacher of the high school at Moscow, was found last year with revolutionary papers in her possession and sentenced to penal servitude. On her arrival at Kara the woman soon attracted the attention of the director of the prison, who took an early opportunity to insult her. Mme. Sinida boxed the ears of the director, who in revenge had her stripped and flogged in the presence of all the men in the prison. Such an outrage had not been perpetrated on a woman of rank since the days of Empress Catharine, and the unfortunate lady was so apprehensive of further shame and torture that she committed suicide the same day by poisoning herself. Several other female political prisoners, fearful of receiving similar treatment, on hearing of the terrible event followed her example. A few miles from the women’s political prison at Kara is that occupied by the male political convicts, who on hearing of the tragedies revolted en masse. Troops were called out and awful scenes followed, shooting and flogging and torturing going on by wholesale. Up to this time the Russian authorities have been able to suppress all the newB of the occurrences. GASNER AL FOREIGN NEWS, A Yoni?*: Ltdf Dr i* wt» a cl. West Union, Feb. ll —Miss Mamie Fitch, a music teacher of this city, was drowned while fording tho Turkey river about two miles west of Clermont. The recent thaw had raised the river to a depth of ten feet at the ford. Tho horse and cart were carried down stream some distance, but were recovered. A thousand people have been on tho river banks all day to day dragging the river for the body. Dynamite was used to break the ice below the ford, under which it is thought the body floated. At two o’clock Saturday afternoon the robe and cushion were found, but the body has not yet been recovered. K*fi»c>*4 Deal Hi Maw an City. Mason City, Iowa, Feb. ll.—Another railroad dual was made in this city yesterday be< we^n the Central Iowa and the Chicago, St, Paul and Kansas City rail roads. The thirty miles of track between this city and Lyle, recently abandoned by the Iowa Central, has been leased by the Chicago, St Paul and Kansas City road, and they are now running into this city. It is also understood that they will make this their division headquarters and. soon commence work on their new round hou^e. The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul are now running trains over the Iowa Central south of this city, and to ail appearances have virtual control of the road. _ Bradford Brongfet Bael. Special to The Hawk-Eye. Dayenport, Feb. ll.—Nore Bradford was brought here last night on a requisi tion from* the governor of Iowa, being arrested yesterday at Joliet, as he was leaving the penitentiary there after a three years’ term for burglary. In 1886 Bradford wantonly attempted the murder of a young man Darned Del any at this place, presumably for purposes of robbery. Delaney’s head was laid open by a revolver buUet but the wound was not dangerous. To-morrow his trial will ecminence in the district court. same time the South Pierre boomers were making this attempt another crowd though somewhat smaller, made a desperate effort about half a mile north at the boat landing. This crowd numbered about two hundred They succeeded in makingthe other bank, but were then discovered" They made a grand rush and scattered. The wagons escaped into the interior r f the reservation and some of the boomers are scattered over the lands Half of them were caught and returned to this city. West of Mile Square there are a large number of houses built by the Indians and half-breeds who 'will claim all the land adjacent to Mile Square. Last n’ght several boomers built houses on the quiet in that neighborhood and all were burned by soldiers this morning All night long boomers were sneaking over in ones and twee ssd many escaped the guards. This morning the Indian police found a colony cf boomers ten miles w:s* cf here, whose houses and fleets thev burned and carried the boomers to F^rt Buily. The boomers are becoming anxious but expect ta-mo’row an order will be received to allow them on the reservation. THET DECLARE THE ELECTION A! SALT LAIE WAS CARRIED BY FMBB.

They were not high-toned boodlers—just common, every day burg lars and thieves —yet for one of them there was a man present who wanted to extend greetings* The prisoner was Noel Bradford, a desperate young Peoria criminal who had jus. completed a one-year term for burglary—robbing the cars of the Chicago and Rock Island road at Peoria The man present to greet him was Speeial-Agenr William J Ray, of the Rock Island rood, who carried a requisition fr^m the governor of Iowa for Bradford's rearrest.

It i3 said Bradford killed a freight conductor there two veers ago Everything Quiet at the Scene of the Late Election—What the Newspapers Say—The Election May Yet be Contested. Salt Lake, Feb. ll.—Everything i.-quiet to day. Business aas resumed its normal condition, and were it not fo; he decorations upon the houses cf the Gentiles there are no indications of the great political battle of yesterday.

Earl Gras villa Criticizes th* Treatment of Portugal tov England. London, Fob. ll.—In the house of lords an address in reply to the speech from the throne was moved by Baron de Ramsay and seconded by the earl of Stradbroke. Earl Granville criticized the tone of the dispatches to Portugal as unnecessarily harsh and as having gone out of the way to provoke dissension in a small and feeble nation that had a great colonial history and was justly proud of it Ha also hoped that the government would tell the house why in the speech from the throne no mention whatever was made of the Parnell com mission. Salisbury said the government shared with the country tho pain arising from the dispute with Portugal, but when the house had read the papers, it would find that Portugal has been warned time and again that it was impossible for England to accept or assent to her claims to the ownership of the territory of the tribes that were under British pro lection, or her settlements in the Shire and Nyassa countries. Decisive diplomatic pressure presented the best course for the interests of Portugal and the interests of humanity After dilating upon the notable decrease of crime in Ireland he concluded with the prediction that if a just and firm government were continued, harmony, love and good will would grow fast rooted among the people of that country even after the laspe of the generations that had known only discord. PATRIOTIC MEETINGS FORBIDDEN. Lisbon, Feb ll.—A proclamation has been issued by the government forbidding the holding of the patriotic meeting which was to have taken place in the coliseum.

THE RUSH FOR HOMES covereo lusur ll.—Fir* 'enileut.i caused lay to th ry at this Th* Arrival al Rattler* on th* Navrlv Opined Reservation Still Contiaata. Chamberlain, S. D., Feb. ll.—Until this morning Indian Agent Anderson proposed to eject all boomers who had entered the reservation because he had received no official notice of the president’s proclamation, but the notice came at last and the rush continues. Settlers arrived at all hours last night, and this morning the landscape west of here is thickly dotted with buildings in the course of erection Companies are being organized which will leave for the interior of the reservation to-day for the purpose of locating town sites along the White river. A company from Chamberlain, which so cleverly located the town site near Lower Brule agency, is reported to be safe. United States Marshal Fry left for the White river to-day to ascertain the condition of affairs there and to quell any disturbance that may arise. A settler who came into town to-day said that each claim immediately west of here has forty occupants. Indian police are on the ground to prevent any trouble.
