Iowa’s famous legislative deadlock is at last b*oken Whea the house met this morning the democrats wanted time to consider the republican proposition made yesterday, so an adjournment was taken UDtil 2:30 th s afternoon. The proposition is as f dlows: 1 The democrat to have speaker and second assistant clerk. 2 Thy republicans to have speaker pro tem., chief clerk, first assistant clerk, en grossing dirk, enrolling clerk, file clerk, bill clerk, as istant postmistress, aer feaut-at-arms, d orkeeper, six assistant doorkeepers, two j anitors. 3 E ch side to have one paper folder and f nor pages. 4 The r« publicans to have first choice of banding committees and choose five, the democrats to have second choice and choose one, the remainder of committees to be divided alternately, the republicans to have Sr t choice; the party choosing such committees to have a majority of one in each committee, including the chairman, either p»rty to have the right to narWlhe chairman and the member ship of ail the committees chosen by thorn 5, All investigative and special com mittens to he severally divided unless otherwise ordered C Th^ same committees to have clerks as Mo y nail them in the twenty-second general assembly. 7 The division of committees to be min by a committee composed of seven members < f each party to chosen by the respective caucuses. The in mocrats at once went into eau nils Th* y decide I to accept the propo Billon if the republicans would concede them two nv r. con mittees. The republica "A it 11:20 went into caucus to consider the matter. The dtm >craric caucus asked the republicans, in add Ilion to conceding the two committees, to give up tho as de ant pogtaias’ors, two doorkeep ere and the engrossing clerks. The re publicans acuwored that they cou'd make the modifications desired and present tlv rn to the republican caucus as a give or take proposition and tho republicans woul I bind th receive* to a cept onesidi or the other. When the house was called to order at 2:30 a recess of an hour was taken to give the democrats time to consider the matter. After a short delibera lion the democrats accepted the republi can proposition and the house was again califd to order and an adj jurnment taken till 7 30 this evening. A the evening session, after some preliminary discussion and adoptauce of the resolution of agreement, it was thought best so have a viva voce vote on the officers. When the roll was called considerable applause was manifested when the first republican on the roll voted for Hamilton, which was recalled as noted republican leaders voted the Kame way Thus the one hundred and thirty seventh ballot resulted in Hamilton receiving ninety-three v des Mr \ lung moved a committee con aisling of J >h»’SOD, of Dubuque, and Chant rev, of Miles, be appointed to escort Hamilton to the chair, saying they were meaihprs of the house during the session of 1838 The lor g suspense ■was relieved and *bo pent-up enthusi ism broke f irth as H*milton was very feelingly sworn in by Hotchkiss. Mr Hamilton in taking the chair said after the long drawn out contest Im would not make any extended remarks Ho wished to thank the members of his party for thoir faithfulness and consistency, and also thanked the repuh licaus in feeling terms. He said all the promises ho would make would be to sci fairly aud honestly to the best of hie ability, and trussed the house would bear with bom patiently, as it was human to err After tho introduction and adoption of a resolution of thinks to Temporal Speaker H itchkiss by Luke, Wilson of (J iss. who wss the lepubdean candidate for speaker, arose and briefly thanked the republicans for the gallant fight thr>y had made in his behalf and expro.-sed his gratification that tho deadh had bei n broken and was glad that the long bittie had engender d no bitter feeling, and then, in the name of the people of Iowa presented Sj es ©r Hamilton with an elegant ebony gav I ll ^milton was quite taken back wi h surpr.se anil thanked the gentleman in h short speech The election of the remainder of she cffi '.erg was proceeded with, Treating a f lows: Speaker pro tem, S Ia3 Wilson; rh cf clerk, H eery 8.

SEL soling HIK COMMITTEES. make the compromise a republican v c tory of no uncertain hue. After the action of the republican! yes erday and this morning the dam c ats had to accept the proposition or stand in the light of again obstructing . the organization of the house. While outwardly they exprets great joy at the result and speak of the victory of their side and say they gained the battle, their inward feeling is much different They are not satisfied and began to realize that if any party has achieved any advantage whatever in the organization, it is the republicans The members on their side do not look cheerful or happy, and many openly expressed the belief that they have bought the speakership at much too great a sacrifice While they havft claimed that they were making the fight fir principle, all they have succeeded in getting is a little empty glory as the m*in power of the speaker has been taken away, viz: that of formulating the committees and thus controlling any leg islation. The safeguards thrown around *hi» position are suck that it amounts to but little. While to some it may appear the republicans have been compelled to yield the ape- heirship and have virtually air; im pished nothing by a continuance of the deadlock for five weeks, but to those who are well informed and who have closely watched this long-drawn battle another view presents itself Had tie party submitted to the demands of the democrats in the Btart they would n >t have received the recognition they now have First they compelled the d mocra*8 to forego any at .empt to un-s at the representatives on the ground of unconstitutional apportionment; next by standing firm they have gained virtual control of the legislature; third, they stand unquestionably in the o^aition of being that party who recognize the interests of the people as paramount and above party strife, that political glory should ba subserviant to the work they have been sent here to perform ^ Any advantage that there may be in having the speaker is more than offset by the republicans having five of the imoortant committees. About all there is left for the speaker to do is to pound on the board and cry “order.” A. Valuable Barn Burned. Special to Th* Ha wa-Bra Newport, la, Feb. 19 —The large and commodious barn rf Hon. George Jamisons here burned last night about nine o’clock with all its contents, including four valuable work horses, thirty or forty tons of hay 2 OOO bushels of oats, 500 bushels of corn and a large amount of farm machinery Harness, paddles, etc. The cause of the fire is not known.

Gear, *»f Iowa, on tho Tariff. Washington, Feb. 17 — [Chicago Tribune 8pecia .J -G vernorGear, of Iowa, who is a memoer of the ways and means committee, in an interview on the sugar question says:    “We have protected Louisiana sugar ever since we ac quired the country, and have paid out in duties in eighty years something like Si5,000,OOO, of which over 90 per cent is direct tax owing to the fact that we do not produce over 8 or nice per cent of the sugar used by the American people, and we are directly de pendent on foreign countries for a supply of this article of prime necessity to every family in our land. If we could produce the sugar we use I should be in favor of protecting it, as I would any other home industry, and it strikes me that as a century of protection has shown that we cannot, from lack of climatic advantages, compete with sugars that are produced nearer the tropics than we are, the time has come to give our people free sugar. “I am also in favor of largely reducing the d fforential or discriminating duties which have existed ever since the foun 1 aion of our government between raw and refined sugars. If we can do this we shall accomplish two thing-first, it would give us sugar 75 per cent lower than we get it now; second, it would break up the ‘trust’ root and branch. ‘I do not know whether the other members of the committee will come to my way of thinking, but I hardly exp ct to see sugar put on the free list. We shall probably make a compromise and give a bounty for the production of sugar in this county.” Another member of the committee said that he thought a compromise on ♦ he sugar question would be reached on which the duty would be put a little lower than that in the senate bill. On the question of taking off the to bacao tax there it also some difference of opinion. Governor G^ar isn’t in favor of taking the taxi ff tobacco and whisky. It is probable that the committee wi I not have its bills ready by March I, as was anticipated_ Warner for u«‘wer»or Kansas City, Feb 19 —At the state convention of republican league dibs. to day.

Under the call of committees A duns, of Illinois, from the judiciary committee called up the bill to divide the judicial district of North Dakota into four divisions, the sessions of courts to be held in Bismarck, Grand Forks, Fargo and Devil’s Lake. The bill was passed, as was tne corresponding senate bill with amendments providing for the diviei rn of S/uth Dakota into three divisions, the sessions of the courts to be held at Sioux Falls, Pierre and Deadwood Mr. Sherman called up the bill to pro vide for the terms and places of holding the United States courts in the districts of Minnesota and it was also passed with the amendment. The senate bill authorizing the presi dent to c infer the brevet rank upon army officers for gallant services in the Indian campaigns since 1867 passed. At 1:25 the house went into a committee of the whole with Payson, of Illinois, in the chair, on the bill to provide for an appointment of an assistant secretary of war After some debate the bill was favorably reported from the committee of the whole to the house and the Okla homa bill was then taken up. Mr. Hooker gave notice that he would move to strike out all of the bill after section 25 (providing for a j udicial system for the Indian territory) Ha said the bill proposed a grand robbery tquailed in the history of civilization only by the spoliation of Poland. Mr. Washington declared the bill vio lated no property rights of the Indians, and, in his opinion, there could be no greater crime against civilization than to leave ninety thousand people in a territory without any government at all. Mr Perkins said there was not a single provision in the bill wh ch infringed on the right of the Indians. Morey said the bill should include all the Indian territory; there was no necessity for a division of that magnificent territory. The Cherokees were the only nation object iog to the extension of the territorial ices of Oklahoma, and it was a signifi cant fact that not an Indian appeared to protest. The men who had appeared before the committee protesting against the inclusion of the Cherokee lands in the new territory were all white men. Mr. Springer briefly maintained the ab solute right of the government to the land embraced within the Oklahoma lines. He said there was not an Indian living on the outlet and the lauds were leased to a cattle company. At this point the committee rose and the house adjourned THE SENATE. The president s message transmitting the agreement recently made with the Sisseton and Wahpjton bands of Sioux Indians for cession of their lands was presented and referred to the committee on Indian affairs Among the bills reported from the committees and placed on the calenda were the following: For the inspection of meats for exportation and prohibiting the importation of adulterated articles of food and drink. For the relief (ff women enrolled as army nurses. Mr. Cullom, from the interstate com merce committee, reported a preamble and resolution reciting an allegation thai by reason of excessive freight rates on the lines of railroads the great section of country lying between the R>cky mountains and the principal fond d stributing centers in the east is unable to market its food products and to obtain for them the actual cost of production, and directing the committee to investigate such allega tion and report to the senate whether such rates are reasonable or unreason able, and whether the reduction of such rates is prevented or hindered by reason of any provision of the interstate commerce act and whether a more stringent enforcement of that act is practicable and would remedy the evil complained of. The resolution was agreed to. The resolution heretofore offered by Chandler, calling on the attorney general for information as to the assassin a ti on of Deputy United States Marshal S sunders, in Florida, was taken up and Mr P sco proceeded to address the sen ate in explanation of the facts and circumstances of the case. Mr. Pasco had not concluded his address when the hour of two o’clock arrived and the educational bill came up as unfinished bus! ness. B air, however, yielded the floor to Wilson, of Iowa, on whose motion the senate appropriating 9100,000 for a public budding at Fort D dge, lows, was taken from the calendar and passed, Call, calling attention to the fact that this was the fourth public building bill passed for Iowa this season. The senate bill establishing customs collection districts to consist of North and South Dakota was passed, and Mr Blair then resumed his argument in favor of the educational bill. Without concluding his speech, Blair yielded for the executive session, after which the senate adjourned. CAPITAL GOSSIP. The house committee on patents pre sented a favorable report upon the bill providing for the appointment of repie sedatives on the part of the United States to the international industrial conference at Madrid, Spain, next spring The president has approved a joint resolution congratulating the people of Bra iii on their adoption of the republican form of government, and for tne relief of sufferers by the wreck of the United States steamer Nipsic at Apis, Samoa. The president accompanied bv repro sedatives Bayne and Dalzell. Professor Langley and Andrew Carnegie, left here at noon to-day for Pittsburg to attend the opening of the free library at Allegheny City to-morrow The house committee on public lands today unanimously agreed to report favorably the bill to repeal the ably is amended to make the pension 913 a month instead of 925 THE COMPOUND T.AHD BILL. The house committee on agriculture to day began a hearing on the legislation proposed by the ’Conger and Butter-worth bills to regulate the manufacture and sale of compound lard and the taxation of th* product thereof. W W. Kimball, of Boston, represent mg the advocates of the Conger bill, asked the committee to report it favor ably to the house. Alexander Wedderburne, representing the National Grange Patrons of Husbandry, addressed the committee in behalf of the farmer. He read resolutions of the National Grange and letters from planters in the south declaring in favor of legislation to prevent the adulteration of food and drugs. The interest of the farmer in the subject lies in the fact, Wedderburne said, that he can produce only pure lard. and he suffers by competition with the adulterated article, the manufacturer cf which is destroying h s c mmerce in this article with foreign countries The C mger bill he said would protect the cotton seed raisers of the south Colonel Brigham, of Ohio, worthy master of the National. Grange Patrons of Husbandry, said the subject of adul t ©rated goods had been considered in the Nation a G nnge for several years and it had endorsed the Conger bill Victor E Piollett, of Pennsyvania, a member of th** legislative committee of the National Grange, closed the hearing in behalf of the advocates bill, and George H. Webster, of Armour & Co, opened the case for the opponents. He asserted that compound lard is not an adulteration but an economic and meri torious mingling of lard with other pure substances The ingredients are prime steam lard, cotton seed oil and beef star ine. His firm puts the compound lard on the market brand* d by its proper name. He said the™ was not enough pure lard made in the United States to meet the demands. Th8 people do not ask for this legislation; and Webster predicted if it be enacted into a law it would operate as has done the oleomargarine law The manufacture of the article increased while the price of butter was never so low If legislation of this character is to be passed he favored the Faulkner bill in the senate for a pure food division of the agricultural department Henry C Butcher, repressing the S uthern Cotton Seed Oil company, said *he effect of the bill wou’id be to kill the manufacture of compound lard unless it can be shown that compound lard is composed deleterious substances injurious to pub lie health, there is no reason for plac ng it under government control. As a* mat ter of fact compound lard is less likely to be tainted by animal diseases than pure lard. Legislation of this character is dangerous in its tendency, resulting in building up one industry at the expense of another The bill would destroy the demand for cotton-seed oil, placing a double burden upon the people of the section in which that was produced. Adjourned until next Wednesday. THE SIOUX AO HERM ENT In transmuting the Sioux agreement to the senate to day the president says this agreement involve* a departure from the erms of the general allotment act in at least one particular—it gives to each member of the tribe one hurdred and sixty acres of land without regard to sge or sex, while the general law gives that amount only to Iliads of families There ire bethinks, serious objections to th* basis adopted in the general law, especially in applications to married women, but if the basis of the agreement is accepted, it would, he believes, result in some cases where there are large families of minor chil dren in excessive allotments to a single family. Touching the question of piy ment ny the Uii-ed States of annuity forfeited by the act of 1863, toe prescient thinks this should not have been consid ©red in connection with the negotiation f t the cession of these lands aud savs the forfeiture declared by that act unjustly inc’uded the annuities of certain Indians guilty of no fault, and who rendered good services in the army during the late war. WOMANS SUFFRAGE ASSOCIATION At the meeting of the National American Womans S ffrsge association today reports were received of the progress of t ie cause in various states. The topic for the morning was “The attitude of this af-s-ciation toward political parties.” Addresses were made by Mrs. Pickier, of South Dakota, Wm Dudley, of Foulke, Indiana, Mrs. Fray, of Toledo, Rev Olympia Brown, of Wisconsin, and o hers The general sentiment was that the ass elation should urge its rightfu demands upon all political parties bu should enter into an alliance with none.

John Barns, lately made prominent as a labor agitator dur-ng the London strikes, declares there is some scheme behind it all that it is merely a sop held out to gain a popular ity among the laboring classes. The German court attributes the letters to the nfiuence of the Empress Frederick. Her son, it is now seen, has imbibed more of che strongly sentimental side of his father’s character than his earlier speeches seemed to indicate His solicitude for the wsge-earner has not prevented his German majesty from taking up anew hobby—that of fencing, which he now practices for an hour or two every day.

It is said the cafe will cost the Times £150 000, at the most favorable calculations Had the case been an overwhelmingly damaging one a public subscription might have been successful, but as the feeling is more negative than anything els© the possibility of such a thing seems remote. A SECOND MISUNDERSTANDING AVOIDED The Papal dispensation under which may be eaten in lent in those countries where influenza prevailed has alrctd? been published to their flocks by the bishops, and among these a* might be expected, is Cardinal Manning, although there are complaints of a certain fishy ambiguity in the phrases used by his eminence in pro claiming the philanthropic message It happened in 1869, in the first Lent of hie trchhiehoprlc, that there was cholera in Loiid n, and that the cardinal issued a somewhat similar dispensation, which when read in church, called firth from an aged Irishwoman the exclamation: This is what comes of Raving a Protestant archbishop,” possibly it is in view of such a misunderstanding that his eminence is less direct in the terms of his dispensation than his neighbor, the Bishop of Southwark.

Si far, the provisonal government has acted with wisdom It is the aim of the founders of the republic to model the new government after that cf the United States. The eovernment will establish a system of secular schools throughout the republic to redeem the marses from the dense Ignorance which prevails The government must proceed slowly, aa the work is one of great magnitude The enfranchised slaves and th© na’ive Brazilians are to be taught, and the income of the government is not large.

The license tier© is 91 OOO and the number of saloons is decreasing every year. La*t year 386 licenses were issued while this year bat 200 have been taken out and a few applications have not yet been acted upon. License Inspector Nugent says the decrease is the greatest ever known in the city's history The Tribune a few days ago presented figures to show how high license has decreased the number of saloons in Omaha, and wherever the syattm is in operation it has the sam© effect In Philadelphia and B >ston the result is even morn marked than in Omaha and Si. Paul, and no one can deny that the number of saloons in Dub q ie, Davenport, Bur* l ngton, Council Bluffs and other Iowa cities would be reduced at least 75 per cent if a license of $1 OOO was placed upon them. In Sioux City and Dss Moines “speakeasy” and drug stores supply the wants of the people so far as quantity is concerned, but the q lality is in nearly every place of the ran bibl The poison Boldin ihesc places is enough to induce murder and insanity, and it does it. Under high license, there would he legitimate competition and the quality of liquors would be improved, as if one saloon sold good liquor and the others poison, the one would get all the best trade The others in order to hold any business would have to sell better liquors. And another good effect would at once foliow high license. At present beer is more difficult to get in such cities as H'oux City and Des Moines, than whisky, because the latter can be more readily concealed as it occupies less a; ace to the amount of a cohol c mtained. With high licensed saloons people would drink more b *er and less whisky, than they do now Uod©r prohibition tho consumption of whisky in increasing rapidly, but it would be greatly checked by the opening of beer salmons. In fact, while there are many strong arguments in favor of high license as against prohibit n, there is hut ODO argument against it and that is that it legal zos the liquor traffic To be sure it does, and that is one of the principal reasons for it. It is better to have few lawful sa o^ns in Sioux City than to have a greyer number of unlawful places where liquor may be as readily ibtained as in a saloon The Tribune confidently asserts that there would not be so many saloons in Sioux Ci’y under 61 COO license! as there are places where iquor may be easily purchased by the rick to day._ Goi4*n Ka lea far Mea of Baslaeee.
