[Pmce: 15 Cunts rn Wbxk.WANTSTHEWflOLEBOG HEADMOST THINKS DHOLE SAM SHOULD OffM HIS TELE6RAFH SYSTEMS. Congressional Proceedings-The Direct T»x Bill-The Senate Secret Session*--Iowa Postoffice Changes-General Washington News. Washington, March 7.—The house committee on poet officers and post roads to day resumed the consideration of the postal telegraph and was addressed by Ralph Beaumont, chairman cf the legi3 l&tive committee of the Knights of Labor. Representative Wade introduced in the last congress a bill for government telegraph embodying the Knights of Labor views, but the bill had died with many others. He did not think the postmaster general’s bill was a good business proposition. What farmer would buy half a farm when he could buy a whole one? The government was abundantly able to buy the whole thmg and carry it on without furnishing business opportunities for some one else This cour.'ry now is practically a government. of corporation?, by corporations and for corporations. Dr. Green, said he, was colicitious about the people in the telegraph business who would be ruined by government competition. Yet he was president of the corporation that had repaateoly crushed opposition companies and other people who invested money in the telepraoh business. The witness favored the Wade bill and said the governcnent should own, operate and centro! its own sy* tem He admitted if the Wan&maker bill resulted in cheap telegraph .ates for the people generally ho would be better pleased than under the present system He wanted tho Wade bill passed but as all legislation was the result of compromise ho should be glad to see tho Wanamaker bill passed as an opening wedge. L IND GHANT ITO HF A ll UHR. A Bill on Ult 8v.bJ*ct imported to tile Senate. Washington, March 7.—Tho senate committee on public lands this morning agreed upon and Henator Plumb subsequently reported a general land grant forfeiture bill framed on the same lines as tho bill parsed by the senate during tho last congress The bill forfeits to tho United States the lands opposite to and continuous with that portion of any railroad not now completed and in operation for the construction and benefit of which the lands havo heretofore been granted It is provided, however, that this shall not be construed as forfeiting any lands heretofore earned by the construction of any portion of a railroad under any act of congress making a grant of public lands. Persons in possession of any forfeited lands under a title derived from the state or corporation to which the restored lands were granted, are given the right to purchase lands from the United States In quantities not exceeding three hundred and twenty acres by any person at the rate of SI 25 per acre, at any time within two years after the passage of the act. Where persons or corporations hold land to which, uader the terms of the act, they cannot obtain a title from the United States, they are given six months within which to remove their growl ag crops or improvement which may bo made. A clause added to the section provides that it shall not apply to any lands in Iowa on which any person in good faith has made or asserted a right to mako a pre emption or homestead settlement. The bill repeats certain sections of several acta in regard to land grants in Iowa and Minnesota which er r tiict with its provisions In the homestead entries of forfeited lands, tho parties will be given credit for the time they have already been on the lands.__ EHN ATU ii 8 MUSI ANSWER. New Tactic* of tit* DolpM Committee in the Secret tWealon nozzle. Washington, D C , March 7.—Senator Dolph’s special committee having failed to extract any information from the newspaper men, to-day took another tack, and beginning at the heal of the list, summoned members of the senate to appear before it and put them through a course of questioning similar to that applied to the newspaper men. It is understood those summoned to-day asserted they had never disclosed the proceedings beyond the limitations of the rules. The ex Amination of the senators will require two or three days. The impression prevails hat ihe resolution to imprison correspondents for contempt will fail; but there is a probability that. some of them will be certified to the district attorney for prosecution on the charge of sedition. TUE WOHLU’S FAIR. TS* Hill Will 1’robMbly ba Beady by Monday. Washington, March 7.—-The Chicago delegation to-day discussed with the house sub-committee the world’s fair bill. It is thought that it will be finished Monday. The chairman of the Chicago committee, Lyman J. Gage, to day received a telegram from a number of Chi cago gentlemen representing an aggregate capital of between $50 OCO.OOO and $75,000 OOO. saying: “We wish you continued success in Washington. We will stand bv you and the committee in every way Chicago will now. as in the past, prove equal to any emergency. You can count on our hearty support.” IOWA AAIS TM A SIEH*. papssge of the bill, ardhe predicted, if that party failed to make good its pledge, that the fact would put an end to the pany. He was not mistaken as to the source from which the moat misrepresentation ac the north concerning the bill had come. The Jesuitical power of the country had decided a way to get control rf the schools wa*- first to get control of the press The press had received its full share of attention and had manifested its full share of subserviency. New York papers were monopolies of the worst kind, and the country parers have been perverted and poisoned by them. After an executive session the senate adjourned until Monday. THE HO USS. CiarY, of Alftbsma, ansu * a UaSBlBCBllr Washington, March 7.—Mr. Hangen, of Wisconsin, from the committee on elec-.ions, reported a resolution in the Alabama contested election case of Threat ▼a. Clark. The resolution, which was unanimously adopted, declares Clark entitled to his seat. Tho speaker laid before the house the senate bill referring to the court of claims of Woodbridge for his invention of projectiles for the rifled cannon It was defeated after some debate. The house teen went into a committee of the whole on the private calendar. Without transacting *;ny business of importance the committee rose and the house took a recess till evening which session will be for the consideration of pension bills. The house at the evening aet.sIon passed five private pension bills, and adjourned.    __ GENERAL. WASHINGTON NEWS. Taulbee’* FbriSclxes Almost AbiB-dOiltd Hopis Washington, March 7.—Taulbee is still alive, but his condition is very precarious and the most sanguine of his physicians has almost abandoned hope. THE WOULD’8 FAIR Chicago men v, ho reached here last night were again before tho subcommittee on the world’s fair this morning, talking about the detail* of the bill. It is not believed that the names of the incorporators will be selected by the stockholders within a fortnight, but the committee will not be delayed on that account. THE DIRECT TAX BILL. The direct tax bill was to day reported back to the house from the judiciary committee, accompanied by a majority report submitted by Caswell, and a minority report by Oates. The majority says the views en the bill last year meet the approval of the majority and are adopted by them la reporting the bill back this year. The minority says the veto message of ex President Cleveland is so accurate and lucid in its statement, so cogent in its reasoning and logical in iis deduction that tho minority report adepts it as expressing their views on the bill. IN FAVOR OF EIGHT HOURS Kx-Rrepresentative T J. Campbell, of New York, appeared before the house committee on postoffices to-day to advocate the passage of pending bills to limit the work of postal clerks to eight hours daily at full salary and to grant them fifteen days leave annually. Several others also spoke in favor of the eight-hour movement. TO INVESTIGATE A CRIME At a meeting of the house committee on elections today, a sub committee con aisling of Chairman Rowel!, Messrs. Lacey and Crisp, reported on the evidence in hand in the Clayton-Brecken ridge Arkansas contest and stated that owing to the ailed sed assassination of Clayton, whereby the contest was suspended, it is of the highest importance that the matter be fully investigated. They reported a resolution providing for the appointment of a sub-committee of five members to make a full and thorough investigation and if necessary go to Arkansas to pursue the inquiry. The resolution was adopted by a unanimous vote. THE CIVIL SERVICE EXAMINATION ENDED The examination cf ex-Postmaster Paul of Milwaukee was concluded to-day. This disposes of the investigation and the committee will now decide upon the course to be followed in its general inquiry. _ THE GUTTERY 8UHKME.DEAD Al MANGLED. Lzxa* Swob* Slid to be ti tiered for Vol«» Favoring the Bill’s Patens*. Bismarck N. D., March 7.—A private letter written by Attorney General Goodwin to a friend in Lisbon, N. D., was read iu the legislature yesterday. The letter states that the lottery people are paying from $200 to $500 down to members to support their bill with the understanding that the amount would be doubled when the measure was passed. It is sa<d that the attorney gent ral’s political rival is holding out for $10,000 As a plan to fight the lottery scheme it was proposed to let it ripen and permit the members who favored it to go on record and then by rousing public opinion, defeat its passage over the governor’s veto. It is sail an attempt will be made to impeach Goodwin PULLED HI8 NOSE The sensation of Goodwin’s letter is still the talk of the capitol city and the feeling in the matter is aggravated by the sensational outcome of the publication of the the letter. Today while Goodwin was talking with other gentlemen in the corridor of tho capitol, rep lesentative Walsh approached and asked by what authority his name had been used in the lotter. After a few words had passed between the two Walsh suddenly seizsd Goodwin by the nose The latter freeing himself, turned and walked away. Goodwin weighs 125 pounds while Walsh is more than twice as large. The atte racy general is urged by friends to take legal action against Walsh but so far he has refused.

To grab his wife's green umbrella and rush into the middle of the street directly in the path of the oncoming steeds was the work of a moment for the excited farmer. His gyrations and shouting brought the horses to a sudden stop. The fire ladies drove off swearing, but the crowd cheered the old fellow as he returned to the sidewalk mattering. “Tarnation fools, let ’em run away if they want to. I’ll never risk my life to save their necks again.” TERRORIZED CHi'JAGO. Buffalo, March 7 —The work of rescuing the dead and mangled victims of the terrible wreck on the Lake Shore road, near Bay View, last night, has been going on all day. There were many sad incidents connected with the wreck, one of the saddest being the killing of Mrs. Joseph Baucus, cf Saratoga She and her husband were on their wedding trip, having been married about a week. The husband was terribly injured, but his physical suffering was nothing compared to his mental agony. He acted in a distracted manner, calling upon the doctors to save her and raving over her broken and bruised body. Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Stewart, of Roches et ter, were instantly killed while their eighteen-months old girl in its mother’s arms did not receive a scratch. Superintendent Cguch, of the Lake 8hore road, says Sleeping Car Conductor Fest discovered the break and went into three different cars, pulling the auto Enatic brake cords and trying to stop the rear section but they wouldn’t work. He was trying to set up the hand brakes when the crash came. Couch could not assign any reason for the failure of the automatic brakes to work. They are generally reliable. When asked why the engine with the front psrt of the train did not run away from the rear section, he said the break occurred on a down grade and that gave increased speed to the rear sections. Tho engineer claims the brakes on his part of the train became set and he couldn’t get away from the rear part in time. He didn't discover the break when it occurred, his attention being necessarily directed ahead most of the time. THE LIST OF KILLED, Buffalo, N. Y , March 7 —The names of those billed in the accident on the Lake Shore road near Bay View last night are J. Swain, a colored porter; John W. Flynn, of Canton, Ohio; John T. Power, of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, supposed to be a traveling agent; Mr and Mrs. J. E. Stewart, of Rochester, and Mrs. Joseph D. Balucus, of Saratoga Springs, New York This morning the bodies of the killed were brought into the central depot where the coroner took charge of them sud conveyed four of them to the morgue, that of Mrs. Balucus being sent to her home. A special train will take the jury to tho wreck. FURTHER PARTICULARS. The relief and wrecking train sent to the scene returned ab -ut 3:10 o’clock this morning. It was met by a large and anxious crowd, and it brought the first definite particulars of the accident. Ambulances and a corps of surgeons were also in waiting, and the work of transferring the injured persons to the hospital was quickly accomplished. It is learned that all those who were seriously injured were in the front part of the Pullman car nearest the engine, Eye-witnesses of the accicent give the ugliest praise to the big negro pelter of the car, A. E, Waldron. With great presence of mind this man dasned into tho wreckage and at much danger to limself succeeded in extinguishing tho lamps in the deeper, which were flaking up ominously and would soon have set the car afire but for his timely action, which doubtless saved many persons from perishing by fire. The action of the sleeping car conductor, Louis L Test, showed bravery and cool judgment He was the first person in the rear section of the train to notice that a coupling had parted. He instantly applied the air brake by means of a rope running through the car, but it failed to work. He ran through three cars and made a similar effort, but the apparatus was disabled in all. As a last resort he turned to the hand brakes and was screwing the nearest one up to the highest notch when the crash came. MR. HAUPT’8 STORY. Mr. Haupt, a well known la this city, who was in tho first sec an interview to-night said: “Th is the train was not in a fit co to carry human beings fro time it left Cleveland. A coupling broke before we left that city, but afterwards the conductor assured me that all was right. At Dunkirk the train parted twice. The steam couplings were broken and the air-brakes failed to act. A tray el lug companion and I discussed the situation and almost made up our minds to get off there and wait for another train, i>ut finally took our chances.” Mr. Haupt says the wreck occured at 8:55 only seven miles from Buffalo yet it was two lours and a half before the relief train arrived on the scene. Patrick Crow* Create* Consternation in the Street* of ta* World’* Fair City. Chicago. March 7.—Lost night Patrick Crowe, of Davenport, wound up a big spree in a disreputable house on Clark street. This afternoon he demanded, at the    point    of a revolver,    from Annie Hall, in whoee company he was,    jewels    valued at    $1,500,    which she had. The woman screamed and Crowe fired, the bullet lodging in the fleshy part of her arm. Crowe seizsd her jewelry and rushed toward the street At the door he was met by a colored woman, whom he knocked senseless with the but of his revolver. He got away for the time being and later in the afternoon pawned the diamonds. Officer Linville, who had been watching for him, met him at the door of the pawnshop and attempted to arrest him, but was instantly shot down, the bullet passing through his face and cutting his tongue in two. Crowe ran "down the    street,    followed    by a    hundred    citizens. Officer    Briscoe    located several blocks down, attempted with a drawn revolver to stop the flying man, but Crowe promptly planted a bullet in Brise re’s breast and kept on. Scon after, he turned and discharged the last cartridge at his pursuers; the bullet striking C. E. C ie in the arm. At last Crowe was cornered in a blind alley, but kept the crowd at bay with his empty revolver until two detectives stole a march on him and knocked him down and hand cuffed him. Fully one thousand people followed the trio to the station, yelling “lynch him.” but the detectives landed him safely behind the bars. Crowe is supposed to have been crazy from drink. Mr. Crows is a native of Davenport, Iowa, where his wife is at present. His mother resides in the western part of Iowa and Magistrate King, of Omaha, is his brother-in-law.

Miss Kale Shelley, the Molagoaa, Iowa, Her Ola*, Almost Peanllsss. Moingona, March 7.—Only a few years ago the country rang with the praise of Miss Kate Shelley, of Moingona, Iowa, who crossed a swollen stream in the dark at great risk to herself, and in the midst of a howling storm, to save a passenger train, for a bridge had been swept away by a torrent. Poems were written on the episode, pictures appeared in the illustrated papers, and innumerable paragraphs were written about the heroine. It is said that she saved the railroad company $50 000 or more in property, to say nothing of what they might have been called upon to pay for lives lost and passengers injured To-day Miss Shelley is the sole support of a widowed mother and three small children, and they are living in a heavily mortgaged house, which is their only property. Three years ago she risked her life for others, and her reward is chiefly the consciousness of a brave and successful deed. The railway company gave her a small reward, less than the value of one of the cars which she saved, and the passengers whose lives were preserved by her act have entirely forgotten hen_ A RICH FIND.

Madison, March 7.—It is safe to say that the acreage of winter wheat in Lee county this season is fully thirty per cent greater than it was last year. The chief reason for this ie* in the successful crop of last year. It has inspired farmers to sow more of this important cereal, and judging from the reports as to the conditions and prospects, there is every indication that the coming harvest will establish the wisdom of their action. The wheat crop of 18S9 was a marvelous one, both as to quantity and quality of the product. Unless it has been seriously injured by the last freeze there is every reason to expect the yield per acre of 1890 to equal that of 1889.

The Hawk-Eyk Bureau, Capitol UuiLDiaa, Des Moines, la., March On account of the protracted length of the joint session yesterday, the members were prevented from presenting any petitions or bills, and were glad when it as over to get home to dinner. There was hardly a quorum present in either [louse at the time of adjournment, and there was no disposition to do anything. The democratic side was very much chagrined at the failure of its scheme on the Ft. Madison wardenship and learned anew the lesson that republicans in Iowa are incorruptible, even though they may at times be at variance with the leaders. The republicans learned one thing also, and that is that they must be eternally igilant or the democratic side will take an unexpected advantage of them. Such an affair occurred in the early part of the session in regard to a minor position, and the republicans, by reason of no concerted action on their part, were forced to accept a man whom they had rot named for the position to which he was chosen. On all important matters they have been on the alert, and our democratic brethren will have to elaborate something very subtle if they expect to win. Party lines are too closely drawn for either side to be caught napping when anything of real importance is to be considered. In the house this morning matters opened up with the consideration of the joint resolution asking congress to pass a law for the payment of arrearages of pensions. It had been passed by the senate aud the republicans tried to get the house concurrence at once. The democrats wanted it referred to the committee on federal relations. Among the republicans the idea prevailed that no investigation was necessary to give a proper understanding of the matter. The resolution was adopted and will go to congress. Petitions and memorials were called for and quite a number were presented on the soldiers’ monument question. The presentation of petitions occupied the greater part of an hour, and then the reports of committees were presented. Mr. Lane, from the committee on rules, presented the report on the rules for this house, and they were adopted. The judiciary committee reported a slight amendment to house file No. I, an act legalizing the action of the town of What Cheer in annexing certain territory. The rules were suspended, the bill considered, engrossed, read a third time and passed. Introduction of bills was taken up and the following presented: By Chamberlain: To amend the law in relation to grand juries. By Clarke-The provide salaries for justices of the peace in lieu of fees. By Coyle—To provide for the permanent support of the state university. By IlendLrsnot—To protect employes in theo- claims for wages. By Hendershot—To regulate weighing coal in mines arid establish a uniform system. By Letovsky—To appropriate money for the state university. By. H. McCarthy—To appropriate money for the agricultural college. By Russell—To define qualifications of railway engineers. When the introduction of bills was finished, committee reports were taken up and disposed of. Dent’s license bill pre ci pi lated considerable discussion. The bill had been printed and now the time bad come for reference. Dent wanted it to go to the democratic committee on police regulations in order that he might get a favorable report on it, and Dobson, chairman of the suppression of intemper ance committee, republican, thought his committee should take charge of the bill Some members argued that the wishes of a member should be consulted in all cases and every bill referred as its auth- r desired. Others said such bills should go to the proper committee and thus abriate the necessity of again referring after being examined by one committee. This bill, however, was not judged on these arguments It was the prohibits n and license issue, and the democrats wanted matters their own way with their own bill; but as the republicans had chosen the committee to deal with that subject, they thought that all bills, license or prohibition should go through what they considered the proper channel. The vote on the subject stood 46 to 45 in favor of referring to the com mittee on the suppression of intemperance Ewart, the union labor man, who has so steadily voted with the democrats, this time cut loose from them and voted with the republ ems There were four pairs, and Cnase (rep ) was absent from the room at the time. This vote shows that any attempt to repeal the prohibitory law will not pass the house, and a prohibition bill could get a constitutional majority. Prohibition is safe if the members all retain their present position In the senate this morning petitions were the first thing in order and their presentation occupied about an hour’s time After the petitions had been disposed the senators unloaded the bills that had been accumulating during the past two days. The more important were: By Kelly—To appropriate money for the support of the state university. By Mosnat—To increase the number of judges of the supreme court By Brower—To provide for the permed support of the state university. By Harsh-To prevent the restraint of labor and trade and prevent pools, trusts and conspiracies. By Perkin*—To appropriate money for the hospital for the insane at Clarinda. By Davidson—To appropriate money for the state agricultural college. Senator Meservey was this morning el acted president pro tem of the senate by a vote of 45 to I. The introduction of billa occupied the rest of the morning. IOWA LEGISLATURE an traduced were to increase the number of judges of the supreme court; to prevent restraint of labor and trade and pool*, trusts and conspiracies; appropriation bills were introduced for the state university, agricultural college Mid hospital for the insane at Clarinda; also bill for the permanent support of the university. Adjourned until tc morrow morning. THS IOWA. v. KM TK AL Th* MMilan Of th* K*lth*ha*n Bride* Bondholders lo Now Torn. The New York Herald prints the following account of the meeting of tho Keithsburg bridge bondholders in that miy on March 4: RUSSELL SAGE AS A BANDIT KING. Eight of the Ioita Central's Myrmidons T>y to Steal the Keithsburg Bridge. The Keithsburg bridge bondholders, who met at the office* of the Central Trust company yesterday to consider what steps to laze to force the Iowa Central railway, which guarantees interest on the bonds, to make the payments, expressed great indignation at an attempt last Friday night by Iowa Central employes to take forcible possession of the bridge They declared that President Russell Sage, of the railroad, was at the battorn of the move, and in fact that the mild looking gentleman named must be kind of operatic bandit king on a small scale The whole trouble began when Mr. Sage tried to reduce the interest on the bonds. The bridge is the Iowa Central’s medium of crossing the Mississippi Soon after the defaults on the bond coupons the Central Trust company, trustee for the bondholders, took possession of the bridge and collected a rental daily. Since February 2 the bridge ha* not been used, Mr Sage, who is a somewhat stubborn man, actually abandoning about fifty miles of the Iowa Central a ira:k and running his trains south to Burlington, Iowa, on anither railroad, crossing the river there and running them north again, a most expensive method of wreaking vengeance on the bondholders. The cost to the Iowa Central of this move must have been largely in excess of the rental of the bridge. A GRAND BANDIT PLAN. The Iowa Ct ntral made this absurd detour on the tracks of the Chicago) Burlington and Quincy railroad, a gentleman largely interested in that company and a heavy owner of the Keithsburg bonds, however, goon found out what was being done and he had the arrangement smashed. Then somebody in tim Iowa Central conceived the plan of taking forcible possession of the bridge and running their trains over it anyhow, since the Burlington road had thrown them over. Eight more or less desperate employe* of the Iowa Central were detailed as banditti to steal the bridge, which was hold by only one man. Somehow the plot got out, and the Central Trust company’s counsel, who last month sent Lawyer Edward Kent, of their cilice, to formally take over the property, telegraphed the bridge tender to open the draw and “spike” the machinery so that the bridge could not be closed. When the eight banditti arrived in disguise at the scene of their projected exploit they found that the “spiked” bridge was not worth embezzling. NOT ONE OF THE CONSPIRATORS Vice-President Morse, of the Iowa Cen- play^- TM* Prooeedlaa* of To-day. Dis Moines, March 7.—In the house, the bill legalizing annexation of certain territory to the town of What Cheer, passed. Tne following bills were introduced: To provide salaries for justices of the peace in lieu of fees; providing for the permanent support of the state university; defining tne qualification* of locomotive engineers; preventing sale of tobacco to minors; to provide for taxation of the capital stock of banka; to authorise mutual insurance companies to consolidate ; defining eligibility of county superintendents of schools. Dent’s license bill was referred to the committee on the suppression of intemperance, republican committee. Dent wanted it to go to the committee on police regular tions, democratic. The vote was dose sad was decided by Ewart (union labor) voting with the reptiMicaaa. SNEATH. la the senate a large number of petitions regarding the soldiers’ monument Th* important UU* in tra!, was accused by the bondholders yesterday of being a party to the bridge stealing plot, but he denied it and said St that it must have been conceived some ‘ overzealous superintendent is claimed, however, that the first clew to the plot was got from Mr. Morse himself, who let slip a few words that put the bondholders on their guard. The Iowa Central people were very independent at first at yesterday’s meeting and tried to dictate their own terms, but the bondholders said that they would have their interest or nothing. The railroads offered five per cent on the bonds, but the bridge people insisted on six, with proper payments toward a sinking fund. By the time the meeting adjourned there was a more amicable feeling and it was thought that at a further conference to day the bondholders will get what they claim._ IOWA IN BRIEF.
