The Democrats Fail to Take Advantage of Their Only Chance to Defeat Allison—The House and Senate Sessions - Other Iowa News. un, i t«r Th* Ha wk-Et* Bub* ac, Capitol Building, Deb Moines, la , Maroa Tho vote on United States senator was watched very closely to day. Before the time for the special order arrived in the house the state officials, members cf the senate ar d visitors in large numbers completely filled the hall. When the nominating speeches were being made close attention was paid, but very little ap plause was made on either side. The trot© was expected to ba so very close that all were interested, and did not want to miss it should any thins? wrong turn up The only absentee was Hipweli, of Scott county, who was paired on all other matters but not on this. Byers was out of town and Woods was paired with him, so the vote was reduced to 97. What gave Allison 50 was McDermid voting for him. In the senate this afternoon the fesse was even more interesting. The house was not in session and it was expected that more interesting speeches would be made. So the crowd was very large Matters passed cfi without a hitch and Allison easily got his twenty-eight votes, while the democrats clung to their candidate and Larrabee could get only a few. The democrats missed theopportuciiy of their lifetime by neglecting to vote for Larrabee in response to so many petitions signed by democrats and republicans, but they ignored them a1 when it came to voting, and thus distegarded what they could have termed the wish of all the people of Iowa. The democrats are good at making mistakes and this is only another of them. Last Thursday might have been called democratic day but today was evidently republican day.

Bloomfidld, Iowa, March 4 —The town election here came cfi quietly and peaceably yesterday and the result was quite a surprise to the good temperance people who have been holding a temperance meeting in the court house every night for the week previous.

A commit tee was appointed to nominate and they did it A cill z ins’ meeting was held in the opera hall and nominated thevictori out ticket.

A Bls Nanimalist* Meeting of Irish ta Chicago. Chicago, March 4 —Central music hall was packed to night with Irish nation alist g, who gathered to celebrate Robert Emmett’s anniversary. The principal speaker of the evening was Thomas Brinnon, of Omaha, the first general secretary of the Land League in Ireland. In the course of his address Brennan said Sincerely is peace with Eoglard wanted, but it must bs peace with honor. If, to obtain peace, they must sneer at fighters like Emmett, and such men as the fenians who died on the gallows at Manchester, then it was the voice of the < mire Irish race which said: "Let the whole fight go The sons of Ireland had the same right in this day ss the Americans had in 1176 to fight and die if necessary ter their liberty from England and English tyranny. They had the right to the same weapons or any other weapons of more destructive kind [wild cheering repeated again and again] if they had but a prospect of success. For the rresent the sword was in its scab bard and they were pledged not to un sheath it unless in due necessity and they were unable to drive it to the hilt. So long as Ireland was held ss a subject province the Irishmen would continue to work and plan together and .Xool^UcSo^eirMond?; STB!**— »• *»»■> conure and plot peculiar Washington, March 4 —In the house a resolution requesting the president to send to the house copies cf all correspondence between the United States and Mexico relating to the seizure at Tampico of the schooner Rebecca in February, 1884, was referred. The following committee appointments were announced by the speaker. Messrs Tarsney, of Missouri, and Heyburn, of Pennsylvania, en claims; Buckner, of Wisconsin, on Mississippi levees, and Cheadle, of Indiana, on pcstcfflces and post roads. The consideration of the Aikane as contested election caic of Featherstone vs. Cate was then resumed. Dalzell, of Punnsylyania took the floor. la sup porting the claim of the contestant Dal zell said in the election in the first district rifles, revolvers and bowie knives had played an important part. This district, he said, was adjoining the one in which Clayton, a mao of national reput aticn when in the exerc'se of the light which belonged to the humblest Ameri cad citizen had been murdered in cold blood at the very foot of the altar of liberty. Dalzell col Ii ned his remarks pria c pally to the eke ion methods of the democrats in Criterdon c aunty, charging intimidation and fraud, and controvert ing the statement made by OuthWaite that there was no evidence that the “double action” ballot box had been used in that county. Mr. Crisp submitted an argument in favor of the claims of the contestee, Cate The cace, he said, was a peculiar one. The counsel for the contestant was Dudley, better known perhaps as “Blocks of Five” Dudley. It was an interesting thing to hear that notorious gentleman discussing before the committee on elec tions the imgortance of purity of the ballot and the necessity of giving the voter the untrammeled and free right to4 vo‘e as he pleased. Crisp then took up the evidence in the case and argued that in its report the majority of the commit tee bad not obeyed the law cf fair piny and law which was dear to the American people. r. Rowell, of Illinois, charged the apparent majority through which the contestee obtained his title to a seat was procured by clime of the highest char acter which, if not perpetrated, would have turned h. apparent majority into a minority. Ne critic^ id the Governor of Arkansas for allowing hundred armed men to expel lrom their position the legal officers of the county without raising his hand to vindicate the law. I he day had come in the history rf the United States when the people had determined that the con stituiion which enfranchised the black man should no longer be nullified. Mr. Moore asserted that the testimony taken by the contestant in Memphis was a fo-gery in all p Articulars. Mr. Breckinridge, cf Arkansas, referred to the peaceful condition of affairs in Arkansas, which brought up Kelley, of Kansas, with a question as to whai had become cf the colored detective who had gone to that gentleman’s district to find out who had murdered the man whose bloody shoes the gentleman stoc d in to diy. Mr. Breckinridge replied the negro had been engaged in trying to look up the murderers of Colonel Clayton. He had got into difficulty with a boy—a republican boy—whose father was a republican. Tee negro was drunk and applying appro-brious epithets to the boy, struck him with a stone. The boy then shot him. The gentlemen had not only gone against this testimony in the pending case but nearly every member who had spoken of the death of his lamented opponent as if it had been the result of the democratic policy. The committee hsd before it the whole case. It had not summoned a witness and he was told the case had not been docketed. Yet, as if it had been tried and found in all its conclusions, the members came here and took, in vain, not his! name and his honor, but the honor of the people he represented. Was that an evidence of the fairness his people were to receive? Mr. Springer thought the case had not been thoroughly investigated and favor ed a resolution which he said he would offer at the proper time, appropriating $10,000 to enable a sub committee of the committee on elections to proceed to the first district of Arkansas and investi gate that election. Mr. Groeqenor said he would move to amend this resolution by doubling the appropriation and by having investigation c xtezded to other Arkansas districts Springer—I accept that and pending further debate, the house adjourned. be resumed to-morrow.

Washingnon, March 4.—The joint resolution providing for the taking of a census in Alaska was taken from the calendar and passed. The resolution offered yesterday by Voorhees in regard to the lease of fur seal islands in Alaska was reported back from the finance committee adversely on the ground that the treasury department had already made the lease and that the committee had no power to interfere in the matter. The resolution was indefi nitely postponed. Among bills reported from the com mittees and placed on the calendar were the following: To amend the act for a bridge across the Missouri river, by Forest City and Watertown county in Dakota; senate bill appropriating $80,000 for the monumental column to commem crate the battle of Trenton, New Jersey, on condition that an equal sum is con tributed by the Trenton Association; passed.

Washington, March 4 —The supreme court chamber was filled to-day with an audience which I s en#d attentively to the argumenta in the Ncagle case, aria ing out of the shooting of Terry last summer when in the act of committing an assault upon Judge Field, of the bu preme court. All the justices were present excapt Justice Field. The argument was opened by Z&ch Montgomery in be half of Appellant Sheriff Cunningham, from whose jurisdiction Neagle was dis charged on a writ of habeas corpus issued by the United S.ates court on the ground that he was ac officer of the Gunite d States, a deputy marshal engaged in the per formance of his duty of protecting a jus rice of the Uaited States supreme court and could not be imprisoned by the state authorities. Montgomery said it was lh© contention of the state authorities that the sole question before the court was a jurisdictional one. and the reference to all questions of Neagie’s guilt or iano cen ce were irrelevant He reviewed the leading points in the evidence. The chief feature of the review was Montgomery’s charge that it was not the purpose of Neagie’s appointment to have him use official authority to prevent a breach of the peace, but to have him resent forcibly any affront put upon Justice Field. Montgomery maintained that unless there were specific statuary authority for the instruction given Neigle, to accompany Justice Field, there was no authority fcr his release by th 3 United States court. He maintained this upon the authority of section 753 of the reviled statutes, that a writ of habeas corpus could not be extended to a prisoners unless in custody for an act done in the pursuance of the law of the Uaited States. If it were true that the act was justifiable homicide necessary for the protection of Justice Field, then there need not ba any fear that the state would not aeq lit him. But it was for the state to decide on this point Attorney General Miller who followed on behalf of the United States, said he would base his argument on two propositions:    First—That it is the duty of the executive department to protect the judiciary of the government; Second-That under the constitution, the judiciary bting in abeyance to the ext cut; va, it is the duty of the j udiciary department to sit in j ldement upon the acts of i<8 officials in performing their duties in accordance with the constitution. He quoted from the words of 8ecrotary Bayald that the inherent right of the government to enact and enforce laws gives it power to protect its servants in their execution. The attorney general argued his case upon this line. Propo aition advanced on the part of the state was a heresy as old as the government, which had bien refuted times without number in courts, in congress and upon the battlefield. It was this same argu ment that the executive had no power except such as was specifically granted by the legislative department that had been used before the civil war to deny the power cf the government to coerce the seceding states. Justice Bradley in terrupted the attorney general in the course of his remarks with the question: With what forces shall the president execute thi3 power of protection of which you speak, supposing that the marshal had not sufficient force for the purpose?” Attorney General—With a posse in the first instance, and if that is no sufficient, with the army and navy. Justice Bradley—Then he ha* the right to aid all citizens of the United States in maintaining the laws and pro tee ting the institutions of the govern ment Joseph Choate, of New York, who fol lowed Attorney General Miller as one of the counsel for the government, opened the argument with the statement that ever ainee the beginning of the govern ment the people of the United States had rested in the conviction that they constituted a nation; that within its limits the goverment was sovereign and supreme, and that it had within itself all the powers and facilities to fulfill its ownfunctiois and accomplish its own purposes. In doing this the government was not subject to hindrance or interference by any power whatever. The government had the power, as it had the duly to secure the performance rf the governmental operations and protect its servants and agents in doing the duties entrusted ta them. For the Ant time in one hundred years the people were now met with the start ling contention that the justice of the highest court of the land were not enti conduct during the entire time he has been in command of that vessel. The request was granted and the court will probably begin its sessions in Yew York Monday. THS POSTAL TELEGRAPH. D H. Bates, of N<»w York, represent mg as he said, a number of gentlemen interested in postal telegraphy, addressed the house committee on p. suffices and postroads on that subject this morning Be analyzed some statistics presented by Greer, of the Western Union, wh'cb result established, as he asserted, that the average rate on the Western Union messages frcm distances of over Ava hundred miles waft forty-nine cents The people, he said, wanted the government to step in and ccmpete to a certain extent The postmaster-gen eral’s bill would do this A uni form rate for the entire country would be desirable, but was imprsctic-ab’e The rata he would suggest on the basis of the new telegraph company do lug all of the seivice except the collection cud delivery and including the op erators (no other basis would be possible) would be, under five hundred miles fifteen cents; above five hundred miles and east of the Mississippi twenty five or twenty cents; west of the Mississippi twenty five or thirty cents; between the eighty fif h and one hundred and fifth paralell twenty five or thirty cents with fifty C3nty as the maximum.

The secretary of state has extended to the delegates of the International Ameri can c nference an invitation to take a trip through the southern states, similar to the trip west last fall, immediately upon the adjournment of the conference Special to Tm HAwk-Bt*. Milton, lo., March 4.—A few days sines the citizens of Milton, Iowa, concluded that the rats had done as much damage as they (the citizens) could consistently stand, so they callid a meeting to arrange a match rat hunt It was decided that they must be cleared out. One citizen stated that the rabbits, rats and democrats were taking the country Accordingly the meeting chose two captains who each chose their hunters for their side. Eich side numbered one hundred and five men and boys over fiften years of age, making a total of two hundred and ten engaged in the hunt. B »jb under fifteen years were to get one cent apiece for their rats. The hunt began Friday, February 21, and is to end Friday, March 7, the time foi closing having been extended from March 1st as at first set. The side show ing the least number of rats at the time of closing is to pay for supper for the hunters. The hunters organized into quads and went about from harbor to harbor, and barn to barn, until there it a scarcity of game. At some barns a‘ many a« one hundred and seventy fly* were killed, while one man killed about five hundred on his premises AU the old harbors were b;okon up, wood pilaf and hog pens turned topsy-turvy, and in general the war was carried on in the latest approved fashion. The “kids” worked like “good fellows.” Every im Dlement of offense or defense was used as an exterminator. On Saturday. March I, the rats killed up to that time were ecu ated. All the rats were taken to “Bob” Creed’s store, where a tally was kept, and it was found that up t two o'clock Saturday three thousand six hundred and seventy-five rats had been killed by the contesting sides William Crockett’s side beat D*vd George’s side by one hundred and twelve rata After the count the rata were thrown lo a wagon bed with side-boards od, and i was completely filled with the dead to dents. They were hauled up and down Main street once or twice as a proces aion, followed by boys andLdogs. and hen taken to the scales ana weighed They weighed 1,875 pouadi—nearly * ton of rats. Then they were hauled off to the creek and dumped therein. Fri day will occur the grand street parade and Friday evemog the supper. The war is going oa with unremitting vigor, and the citizens are determined that the rat tribe shall perish from the face of the earth so far as Milton is concerned. This is the first match rat hunt that has occurred in Iowa and it has proven a de cided sue less. It might be weU if they were to become fashionable. THE PARNELL* ISSUE. CROSSING TRE RIVER.

We left our rural home* together and were fellow WO:!. n in a smoke factory al Pittsburg, and when I secured a jot to fan fog on a steamboat lie was made second cook on tbe same boat. We boated together several years, and finally I shipped on the Prairie Itird, running Atween Cincinnati and Helena, Ark. John could not g*-t a job on tho Prairie Bird, but was taken on the Diana, an eight troller !>oat, in tho same trade as tike boat I was on. “ We left Cincinnati three hours ahead of the Diana with a general cargo. John promised to join me in Helena and bring his wife with Him—ho w.is to be married thai day. Our cruise was uninterestin vntil wo reached Helena.

I felt myself going up, up, up. I haven't any idea how high I did go. Three hours later, as I wad coming down—I was about auntie from the earth then—I met a man and woman coming up. Tbe woman had hold of the man’s arm, and in bis oilier hand he carried a grip sack. I recognized bim as my old friend. John A.

When I struck ground I learned that the Diana had exploded her boilers three hour* after our explosion, that Morrell and his bride were standing on the boiler dock at the time of the explosion. They were ready to go ashore, but went up instead. “About three years after that I was sitting in the office of the Palace botel at Ban Francisco.
