To-night the toots of home Washington, Feb. 24—In spite of the had weather the galleries were packed with spectators, and the corridors were obstructed with crowds gathered to witness the deciding struggle over the location of the world’s fair. The proceeding! opened by the swearing in of John E. Rayburn, successor of the late Representative Kelley, of Pennsylvania. The house committee on reforms in the civil service flied formal charges against the members of the commission. The clerk read the special order of the house prescribing the method of voting upon a site for the fair, requiring some one place to have a majority of the votes cast. v Mr. Blount, of Georgia, wished to know if there would be an opportunity afforded to press the question as to whether there shall be a fair before selecting a site. The'speaker replied that under the special order this opportunity could not be had, and he immediately directed the clerk to read the roll. There was some applause as the first few responses were made, which was promptly checked by the speaker. The vote resulted: first ballot.

All was excitement as the roll 140 IIG 38 24 call began again, and it was apparent the southern members who had steadfastly suoported St. Louis up to this point were beginning to break away and going over to New York: consequently the expectations of the New Yorkers were at the highest point, and indeed in this vote they polled their full strength, but gained only six votes, while Chicago gained nine and St. Louis and Washington kept up their steady retrogression, the former losing ten and the latter five votes The total vote was again 312, distributed as follows: BTX1H BALLOT. Chicago.......................................149 New York.....................................lie st. Louis.....................................2H Washington ..................................19 New York people were discomfited at their small gain and began to realize they could do no more. The desertion of Wade, of Missouri, from St. Louis to Chicago, added to their alarm, so the reading of the vote was demanded, not to verify it, but to secure time for consultation. Heads were together all over the house and the result was shown just as the roll call was begun by Wilson’s rising and moving a recess until to-morrow at eleven o’clock. There was a shout of disapproval and derision from the compact Chicago forces, and when tho speaker attempted to put the question, several Chicagoans were on their feet with points of order, alleging the motion had come too late, that the roll call had begun. The speaker, however, declared he had recognized Wilson before the first name was called and put tho question. Without waiting for the announcement of the viva voice vote, Wilson demanded the yeas and nays, and they were ordered. There was much excitement on the floor at this point. Flower was hurrying about from one man to another and pointing at the clock, (which indicated the hour of 4:80) and urging a recess. The rumor ran over the western side of the hall where Chicago was in force that it was the purpose of the New Yorkers to arrange over night for the transfer of their strength and that of St. Louis to Washington, and the fact that Wilson (in charge of Washington’s interest) was leading the movement tended to add to the rumors. If such was the purpose, however, it failed signally for on (he yeas and nays vote the west clannishly rallied together and the house refused to take a recess by a vote yeas 138; nays 174. The Chicagoans were in feverish impatience, fearing delatory tactics 'hat would lose them the advantage they held. Mason rushed forward to the clerk, exclaiming “Call the roll I” “ jail the tolll” New York’s back-bone was broken, however, and there was little further opposition. The clerk again took up his list, and the result was 311 votes divided as follows: 8KVAKTH BALLOT. Chicago........................................154 New York.................................IJS Ht. Louis....................................... 2i Washington.................................... 17 Tney majority would be 156 and Chicago had 154; just two votes short There was an agony of expectation when Mason dragged Rayburn, Judge Kelly’s successor, forward. He said he wished to change his vote from New York to Chicago and did so. He was greeted with applause and evidently expected to lead a stampede for Chicago but was disappointed nobody followed his example and Chicago’s total vote stood 155, one less than a majority. New York’s forces were retiring in good order and contested every inch of the ground. So another roll call was necessary, it was the eighth and last, for Chicago achieved her vie tory, and out of a total of 807 votes, received 157—three more than a majority. BIGBTH BALLOT. Chicago............  157 New York.....................................IOT St. Louis.....................................Si Washington.................................. 18 The changes on the eighth and last ballot were: Abbott from St. Lduib to Chicago, C&tchings from Chicago to St Louis, Cobb from St LiuistoNew York, Eiloe from New York to St. Louis, Hare from St. Louis to Chicago, Hem phill from New York to Washington, Reilly from Washington to New York, Skinner from New York to Washington, Wallace, of Massachussetts, from New York to Chicago. The announcement of the result was greeted with thunderous applause by the Chicago adherents. The house adjourned at six o’clock in the midst of an uproar. HOW THS RSHULT WAS TAKEN. called attention to the fact that the Bena tor from Florida (call) had in debate last Thursday uttered words personally offensive to him (which he had not then heard) and had followed that breech of crier by charging and adding to the official report of his remarks a paragraph still more offensive. He (Chandler) deemed it his duty before replying to the assault made upon him to bring the senator’s conduct before the senate for sucha ction as might be deemed just and suitable. He therefore offered a resolution reciting the charges and asking that they be striken from the records. The communication from the attorney general on the assassination cf deputy marshal Sahnders was referred to the committee on privileges and elections. A bill was passed authorizing the construction of a bridge across the Missouri river between Pierre, Hughes County, and Stanley County, South Dakota The Blair educational bill came up as unfinished business, and Faulkner addressed the senate In opposition to it Among other things he asked: Is the bill sanctioned by the provisions of the federal constitution? Are its provisions which effect the distribution of the fund between states and the race, just and beneficial? Is it the part of wisdom and practical statesmanship for the national government to embark on this boundless sea of unrestrained and unlimited legislation? He took the negative of these propositions and went on to argue in support of his views, quoting from the debates on the constitution, from the decision of the judges and the writings of the recognized statesmen. The bill had been justified by the supporters on the ground of relieving the illiteracy, and yet when the fund got into the states, one-third more would be given to white children than to the colored children (on a basis of school population), while the illiteracy of the colored children is forty per cent greater than that of the white children. That the contradicted principle of the bill Faulkner said he had perfect faith and absolute confidence in the present and future of the south. Ha did not intend that the active, energetic and en terprising people of West Virginia should be held up before American people clothed in rags and crying out with poverty and humiliation. If the constitution did not prohibit the passage of the hill, the sentiment of justice, at least would demand that the distressed farmers of Dakota, miners of Colorado and Nevada, and lumbermen of the north west should not be called upon to contribute to the education of the children of his state. Mr. Coke obtained the floor and Platt arose and said the educational bill had held a plane as unfinished business since February 3rd, and he should insist after to day that the hill, when taken up, should be discussed every available hour until a vote was reached. It ought not to block the way of the important busi ness now on the calendar. A resolution by Sherman was agreed to, calling on the secretary of war for a report of the court-martial proceedings iu the case of Private Wild, at Fort Yates.

Notwithstanding their claim to Jeffersonian simplicity the democrats intend to do the inauguration act in a style never before equalled in this history of the state. The fact that the is their first chance in thirity-six years and probably—most probably—their last, there is some excuse for their exuberanance. The expenses of the inauguration will foot up to quite a large sum and will cost the state from three to four times as much as the inauguration of republican governor’s in the pasts. The legislative members have not returned generally, both Speaker Hamilton and Speaker pro tem. Wilson, who are to formulate the committees, while expected back to day, did not arrive. Speculation as to the committees hence is somewhat unreliable. The indications are the republican chairmen of the main committees will be about as telegraphed last week. Blythe seems to lead as to to appropriations The democratic program as far as eau be learned seems no to be to give Ewart the recognition he demands for his support and action with them, and he will receive the chairmanship of the labor committee. Beem is to be given municipal corporations. The slate for the other main committees is changed somewnat also Dayton is to have railroads, Holbrook text books, and Hotchkiss mines and mining. There is general rejoicing here over the success of Chicago in securing the world’s fain_ PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS. N*w TWH Gives Up GnMfally u4 will A Balat Ms Mantes tea Fair 8 a cee aa. Washington, Feb. 24 —The fight over the world’s fair site is regarded as finally settled by the action of the house to day. New York’s leading representatives accept the defeat calmly and philosophically and consider it final. They say New York despite many drawbacks made rn gallant fight and now they have been beaten will accept the defeat gracefully and do all possible to make the fair a success. Mr. Depew said to night: “New York went into this contest expecting to win. If the vote had been taken four weeks ago we are confident we would have won. We feel we lost by our foolish quarrel. We accept our defeat with equanimity and will do our beat to make the fair a success Many St. Louis and Washington men have already annouzced their intent to work for Chicago. It la not believed the strength of Chicago’s opponents will accept sixty votes. It is probable however, a large number of members will be found in favor of postponing the date of the fair till 1828. To-night tile Cnicago people are over dowing with gladness. Jollification meetings are be ing held. WI in  93  a  ti hen the house meets to morrow a motion will be made to recommit tire world’s fair bills to the special committee. After this is done the committee will proceed to amend the tri-city hill so as to make it conform to the wishes of the Illinois members of tire committee.

Senator Vane*’* Bill to FatabllaH A sri cultural Dapoaltor MCWASHINGTON, Feb. 24.—Senator Vance introduced a bill to establish in every county of every state in the union an agricultural depository under control cf the treasury department in which the owners of grain, cotton, tobacco, etc., may deposit their product, receiving therefor warehouse receipts and treasury notes equal to eighty per cent cf the market value of the deposit. The deposits may be redeemed at any time on the payment of the sum advanced and interest one per cent per annum. Fifty thousand dollars are appropriated to carry out the provisions. AMEND THE INTERSTATE COMMERCE BILL Mr. Paddock introduced to-day in the senate a bill to amend the interstate commerce act The amendment is intended to provide for the relief of farmers in the west who are unable at present to market their crops an account of the high freight rates prevailing on the long haul, and which railroads claim cannot be reduced without demoralizing all short haul rates under thp interstate act. The bill provides that the long and short haul clause be amended, so in case of investigation of an infraction of that section, the commission wsll be obliged to consider the cost of transportation and the facts and circumstances bearing upon the market value (pf the product, and if it appears the product is one of the necessaries of life, and upon it a justly lower rate is indispensable in order to enable such product to be transported to market. Such transportation rate, so far as the long haul clause is concerned, shall be considered an exception to the general role. The amendment also prescribes that the long haul for such product, within the meaning of the amendment, shall be five hundred miles or more by the route over which the freight is actually transported. WINDOM DEFENDS HIS SILVES BILL: Secretary Windom, before the house committee on coinage, weights and measures to-day, in regard to silver coinage declared his bill was framed to meet in the beat way he could devise, the present financial condition of the country He disavowed all chargee that his bill was a mere makeshift, that its author did not believe in it, and that it was brought forward to defeat tome other measure. Mr. Windom took up in order the objections    that had been made against his bill. The matter of exclusion of expression    of foreign ores he covered in    amendment to the first section,    providing that every bar of silver bullion imported must be stamped “Foreign,” as must also such ban when remelted or refined. This provision is ^aborted and penalties provided for failure to comply therewith The secretary answered in a concise manner other objections and Mid he was convinced that the measure would meet all needs without endangering the interest of the country and would absorb the surplus silver and thereby put up its price. The operations of this bill would tend to raise the prices of farm products. Free coinage would reduce silver below its present value. This bin would increase the circulation of the country 22,000,000 annually. Bishop Henneasy Ieauea rn Pastoral Latter Urging Their JKstab lichee* at Dubuque, Iowa, Feb. 24—Bishop Hennessy, of this diocese, has issued a pastoral letter addressed to the priests of his diocese in which he takes strong ground in favor of the establishment of of parochial schools in which to educate the children of Catholic parents. He warned them that the penalty as provided by the Baltimore council aeainst pastors who neglect to establish Catholic schools in their parishes is removal from their charge. He says that education should embrace a thorough religious training and that such cannot be obtained in the common schools. This education, he claims cannot be given at home nor in the churches not as he says “by any priest with whom I am acquainted.” He notifies the priests that they must establish Catholic schools and the people that they must send their children to them, otherwise they will lay under the ban of the church. A large number of the Catholics of Dubuque are sending their children to the public schools and they are disposed to rebel against this command of the bishops. Creston Polit tea. Special to Thb Hawk-Btb. Creston, Feb. 24.—The democratic city convention Saturday night nomi nated 8. R. Davis for judge of the superior court, H. Copenheffer, city attorney, and L. L. Emerson aesesssor. The republican city convention this evening nominated Hon. James G. Bull for judge of the supreme court. Mr. Bull is one of the leading republicans of southern Iowa, and was formerly mayor of Columbus, Ohio. The nomination, which is equivalent to an election, was made by acclamation amidst enthusiastic applause.    _ Dante—Was Blais o*>s Birth-Ely—A Cerates Reception. Correspondence of Thb Hawk-Eye. Mt. Pleasant, Feb. 24 - Our community was pained this morning by the news of the death of Mrs. W. R Hill, the estimable and beautiful wife of one of our promenent citizens. Though she has long been a sufferer from consumption her resolute spirit had kept death away so many months, that the end came with a shock to all her friends. The time of the funeral is not yet determined. Last Friday evening the celebration of Washington’s birthday took place at the hospital. For years it has been the custom of the officers of the institution to give the patients a masquerade party Et this date, and ail who are able can participate as maskers. A dance with plenty of good mutic fills out the evening and sends dull care away as far from those poor trclouded minds, as ia possible. This year was as successful as ever in spite of the fact that Dr. Gilman is suffering greatly from rheumatism and could give little personal attention to affairs. The visiting committee sent by the legisature is at the hospital today. It consists of Senator Caldwell and Representatives Mitchell and Young; a fair and able trio of men. If only they could have been at the masquerade on Friday evening they would have been better able to see the actual and crying need of a new amusement hall to take the place of the little chapel, which was built only to accommodate the main building. This room has never been enlarged, to meet the needs of the inmates of the two large wings added since then, and, consequently, holds only half of the patients ai a time, and then, in a cramped and unsatisfactory way. Saturday evening the energetic Wo mans Relief Corps held a plate social, to which McFarland Post and Harlan Camp of Sons of Veterans were invited. It was, as usual, a success. Speeches were made by Comrada3 Be re man, Abraham and WiDg, and also by Mrs. Wing and other corps members.

Topeka, Kan., Feb. 24—Secretary Mohler, of the state agricultural department, has issued sn address to the farmers, in which he gives it as bis opinion that there ought not to be a bushel of corn sold in Kansas at the present prices, and that, if the means within the reach of the farmers themselves were judiciously used, with but few exceptional cases there need not be any sold. He thinks the best solution of the problem is for the alliance of the state to store the surplus corn until better prices are offered and arrange for the farmers to draw or borrow money on their product. Mohler says: “Corn in Kansas at 12 cents a bushel is as good as gold, and under the circumstances now existing there is not, in my opinion, a bank in this state that would not cheerfully loan money at a reasonable rate on com well cribbed or in store. _ Th* Billiard Tournament New York, Feb, 24 —The billiard tournament was resumed at noon to day between Catton and Heiser, eight-inch balk line.

T., Feb. 24 —The town of Wickenberg has without doubt been swept out of existence by the bursting of the dam cf the Walnut Grove Water Company, as it lay on the banks of the stream, and great loss of life must have occured. Owing to the excitement and short time the courier remained in the neighborhood before starting for assistance, he could not say whether any one was saved. The town was a mining settlement and the men worked in the hills, so they might have escaped, but it is almost hopeless to expect that any of the women and children eluded death. When the wall of angry water struck the service dam, fifteen miles below the break, it was checked for an instant, but the dam was unable to withstand the terrific pressure and soon gave way, carrying with it the extension system of flumes nnd other structures. Wien the news was received in Phoenix ev.ry one was stunned by the horrible risaster. Soon, however, parties were made up to go to the rescue, and by evening the town was nearly deserted, &3 every one who could secure a horse or other means of conveyance was on his way to the Has; ay amps valley The superintendent cf the company was in Phoenix when the news was received, and he started for the scene of the dis aster as soon as his horse could be saddled. The news of the break in the reservoir was received here by a messenger, whose horse dropped dead as he entered town. The couries says the valley below the dam for miles was swept clean. Immense rocks were carried away as though they had been chips. There are many prospectors in the country, and this fact makes it impossible to even estimate how many are lost. As a rule they are in the low lands, and would be swept out of existence withou a moment’s warning. The messenger was some distance below the dam when it broke, being in a side gulch, but he says that from the sound the most of the huge fabric must have given away before the millions of tons of water almost instantaneously. There was an awful crash that seemed to shatter the air, followed by a surging and roaring as though a hundred Niagaras were tearing their way through a mighty mountain range. He ran immediately to the top of the hill, where the valley was visible, and he describes the scene as something awful. The valley was filled with foam-capped water that seethed and bubbled as it spread itself over the valley and into the side canons. Where he saw the valley the water was a mile wide and not less than fifty feet deep. Monster trees were cut off by the rocks and water like reeds Nothing living was visible The Walnut Grove company was one of the most extensive storage and hydraulic mining companies in the territory. Their works were of vast extent, and when in operation were expected to revolutionize this district. The true reason of the failure of the dam cannot even be surmised as it was built by ex pert? and supposed to be able to with stand any possible pressure. Feeling is high and a rigid examination will be made, as on the result may depend the future of the storage of water in moun tain reservoirs. The dam which held the waters back was 110 feet long at the base, and 400 feet at the top. It was 110 feet thick at the base and ten feet at the top, forming a lake three miles in length bv three fourths of a mile wide, and 110 feet deep. Lieutenant Brodie, who wa* in charge of the work, was absent at Phoenix superintending the shipment of machinery to the works. Of those known to have been drown ed were J Haines, wife’, and four chil dren, H. Boone and daughters, John Silby Joseph Roldesny, Mrs. McCarthy and 8 McMiller. no information received Phenix Arizona, Feb 24 —No infor mation is received here in regard to the break of the Walnut Grove dam If the disaster has occared the loss of life and damage to properly must be great The ▼alley is inhabited principally by Men can miners and ranchmen. WICKENBERG ALL RIGHT. Phiebjx, Ariz , Feb 24 —A courier who has just arrived from the lower dam on the Hasiayampa reports that a tremendous mountain of water came down the H assassin pa about two o’clock Satnr day morning and thirty four men lost their lives at the lower dam, where they were at work. They were all whites ex cept three Chinese The courier re ports the town of Wickenberg all light. The loss of l;fe in the valley between Wickenberg and the dam may not be known for some days, but it is without doubt considerable, and the number may possibly reach thirty or forty. The courier states that the upper dam had undoubtedly broken and carried the other two dams below down with it The loss of property in the dams alone will amount to about $800,000.

That sr unds preposterous, but it is exactly the case of an old negro now living in Athens Charley Harden is his name, and the snows of age have settled down upon him. In slavery times he belonged to John White, who lived at that time in this county. Charley was seen on the streets yesterday talking to several of his friends and telling them of bis curious condition.    # “For four years,” said he, “I have not slept a wink. I hear continually a buzzing sound, and it Seems as if several persons were talking to me all the time At night I lie in my bed with my eyes wide open, and if I do sleep never cloie them, and always hear the talking. It is an awful thing to be talked to for four years, and through the long nights to have to listen to thi* nonsense.” Charlie has tried doctors for bis sleep lessness, and has found no remedy and has given up all hopes of ever sleeping again. He. as a matter of necessity, sleeps, but his eyes never close, and all his mental faculties remain ever awake His case is a curious one How’* BbsImmw fare,” says the restaurant FIVE MEN CRUSHED TO DEATH MUMY War El mmm Burl a* Uuitr 1 FaJl-Imk cupola Hamburg.
