Saun- court of the United States to-day j ders and Power by the “Iron Hall,1' House bill appropriating $60,000 for public building at Fremont, Nebraska, was reported and passed with a substi Jute, and a conference was ordered with the house so as to make this and all public building billa correspond in form. The bill to declare unlawful trusts and combinations in restraint of trade anc production was taken up and Tuprie dis cussed theconstitutijnaJ points involved Mr. George opposed the amendment offered by Reagan to the bill. Mr. Tiller said he was inclined to vote for the bill, although he was not sanguine of it accomplishing its purpose. Unless the states took hold of the question and suppressed those trusts by limiting the amount of capital that can be aggregated in any corporation, the trouble would continue. The bill, he said, would apply to the Fat mere’ Alliance and National Far mere league, which were organized with the avowed purpose of increasing the prices of farm produce, a thing which he regarded aa most desirable and as absolutely essential to the prosperity of the country. He was extremely ani ious to take hold of and control those great trusts and combinations of capital that were distributing the commerce of the country. He did not want, however, to go to the extent of interfering with organizations which he thought Wire absolutely justified by the remark able condition of things in the country George referred to the Kni hts of Libor as another organization that would come within the scope of the bill, because the object of the order was to    increase their wages and consequently    increase the cost of production. Mr. Teller admitted that the Knights of Labor and all trades unions in the country were practically included In the bill, and suggested to the committee which reported it whether it could not bs so worded as to cmflne it to trusts that were offensive to good morals. The discussion then drifted to the amend ment offered by Ingalls (aimed at dealing in “futures” and “options.”) Mr. Sherman opposed it as not in har mony with the bill; as proposing a tax I —— ——**-*» «■*« tm (which could not originate    in the senate)    fl:)orB    in    many    hous and as not having been    considered by 17aded    by    toe    flood the committee. He also opposed Reagan’s amendment and pleaded for the passage of the bill as reported from the finance committee. Mr. Stewart said the bill was unconstitutional. Mr. Hoar criticized the bill in some of its legal aspects, and claimed it failed to aff <rd any adequate remedy. Mr Sherman replied to Hoar and said that if the duty on cotton clothes or woolen clothes was too low to protect the manufacturers of Massachusetts that not a month or a day would be allowed to pass before Hoar would demand a remedy in the way of raising the duty. There was a remedy for the greater wrong than any that resulted from the low tariff. The far mere’ associations throughout the country could not see the source of evil, but they demanded a remedy, and their demand had to be heard. The power of congress was only a power that could deal with those corporations. Mr. George asked Sher man whether the Standard Oil company was not a corporation under the law of Ohio and whether the legislature of that state coutd not annul its charter. Mr. Sherman replied that the Standard Oil company had bee ized with the modest affirmed the judgment of the circuit court of the eastern district of Virginia granting a writ of habeas corpus to Wil son Laney, convicted in one of the state courts of perjury. Laney, it was alleged swore falsely in giving before a not*ry public, testimony to be used in the Vir giaia contested election case cf Waddell ▼i. Wise. The court says that testimony in congressional contested election case* is given in obedience to the laws of the United States, and not of the state and accused should have been tried before the federal court and not before the state court. Justice Gray, in delivering the opinion, says: “The administration of justice by the national tribunals woald be greatly embarrassed if a witness, testifying before the Uaited States court, were liable to prosecution in the state court, where local passion and prejudice might prevail.”    J A JUDGMENT REVERSED. Justice Gray reversed tne judgment of the same court granting a writ of habeas corpus to Charles Green, convicted of fraudulent voting at the last presidential election. Justice Gray holds Green’s of tense is a sta e matter. Although presidential electors are appointed in pursuance of the constitution they are no m^re agents of the United States than are the members of state legislatures acting as electors for senators.

Boston, March 24 —The carpenters at work on the Bjston Player’s Club grounds were ordered to quit this afternoon by the Carpenter’s Uaion According to a delegate the federation of labor had been given to understand that in payment for their endorsement the Brotherhood would let contracts only to such contractor who would agree to employ union labor, pay union wages, and en force union hours It is asserted that not only had the Brotherhood club of Boston failed to conform to the requirement of the union, but the brotherhood managers of other cities had practically ignored in placing their contracts, the endorsement of the labor organizations and the wishes of the Carpenter’s union. the members of the senate and the republican representatives claiming to be elected, and of Messrs. Maginnas and Clark by the court house legislature, composed of half the senate and democratic representatives claiming to be elected. None of the senators had their election called in question, but there were two sets of five representatives from Silver Bow county claiming to Ie elected. One of these sets elected with twenty-five other republicans and eight senators voted for Saunders and Power; the other set with twenty-four other democrats and eight senators voted for Maginnas and Clark. The case, therefore, turned up rn the question which of these two sets of five persons was enti tied to sit in the house of representatives from Silver Bow county. It ie not claimed that there was any adjudication of the house itself affirming or denying such title. To determine this question, the report says, the committee have been led to consider three others, which in their judgment, disposes of the whole case. I. Which of the two sets or groups cf five members claiming to sit for the county of Silver Bow had credential* from the officer or board entitled to canvass the vote and declare the result? 2 If one group of five had the lawful en dantials, but the other group were in fact elected, which was legally entitled i a j    —    were actually Pe ,rct"EB fr°“ 'he county, made bv the clerk on the 31st of Octo ber, 1889, uEd,r the law and mVde £ the canvassing board and clerk on the 7th of November, 1889 boti, show very clearly that the fire per sons who acted in the Iron hall as retire sedatives were not elected by the people of Silver Bow county. The terr!to rial board of canvassers on the fourth of November, 1889, issued certificates to five persons not elected by throwing out the vote of precinct 34. which ha! given a large majority to the democratic candidates, this act of the board was done wuhout any right or authority. The' had the full returns of the true vote of the county before them. Being repub beans, and anxious to serve their party in what they thought to pe an emergency, they refused to count or- canvass the real vote of the people and certified to the election of the Ava persons not chosen in hope and with tue expectation that these spurious rep resentatives might in the same way vote for partisans of their own political faith as candidates for the United States senate, The majority report was signed by a1’ the republican members of the commit tea and the minority report by the demo crats.

C., March 24.—A terrific cyclone struck EJ gem ore at four o’clock Saturday afternoon, killing one man, seriously wounding a number of persons, and wrecking a large amount of property. James Miller, a negro, was caught among the falling timbers of a | bouse and crushed almost beyond recog nition. Thomas Johnson, a negro teamster, was badly cut on the head and had an arm brown. Henry Williams was so seriously hurt about the head and neck hat he will probably die. Seven or eight others were ic j ared, but none of them so badly as those mentioned.

It j8 reported that the town of Prosperity has bien swept away, but as the wires are down nothing can be learned, but it is reared that immense damage has been done there.

PrrrsBURG, March 24.—The rivers have fallen two and a half feet since last midnight. As the water is falling at alf points from Pittsburg to the headwaters, all danger of a disastrous flood is passed. The damage done by high water is small. Colonel D. L. Judson, military secretary to Governor Hill to-day served territorial laws, the majority concluded that the territorial law providing that the county clerk shall issue certificates of election to representatives of the legislature was superseded by the ordinance of the constitutional convention, which imposed that duty upon the state board of can vassers, and to hold that “Bray and his four associates who went to the Iron Hall with the certificates of the state board that they were duly elected from Silver Bow had the lawful creden tials ” Upon the question of quorum, which has been raised in connection with the case, the committee here say:    “It will appear that it is necessary to decide this question for the purposes of the present case.

London, March 24.—In the commons to-day Mathews, tne home secretary, in reply to a question by Ltbouchere de nied that Inspector Jaivis had ever gone into business at Del Norte, Colorado, near Sheridan’s rancho, for the purpose of gleaning evidence to be placed before toe Parnell commission. Balfour introduced a bill for the purchase of land in Ireland and for the improvement of the poorer and more con gested districts. The bill also provides for the establishment of an Irish land department. Balfour said, in proposing the formation of the land department, that there are now no fewer than five bodies for the valuation and sale of land. The hill proposed the amalgamation of these into one body. Regarding the question, “ought the land purchase bill to be compulsory ? ’ the government answered, no. Compulsion should be used most sparingly. [Ironical Irish cheers J But when justified by necessity it should be applied If they compelled the landlords to sell they must force the tenants to buy. The most cognant reason against compulsion was that they could not make a bill compulsory without applying it to the whole of Ireland. The government saw no poza.b lity of immediate consummation of such an enormous transaction as a compulsory transfer of the whole land of Ireland from the existing owners to the existing occu pants. Ought they to throw any risk upon the British tax payer? The government answered no. Still British credit, under perfectly secure conditions, must be used. In dealing with the question of advances to tenants to enable them to purchase, the government decided against the advancing of more than twenty years’ rental, meaning rent from which had been deducted the load rates now paid by the landlord. Balfour thai went on at gnst^length to explain toe scheme of the security funds, the matter being very complicated. The ani I** «    ----»    • Two Mr!! din pi of J.

Moulton , March 24 —The residence of Dr. J P. Smith, of this city, was rocked and fired into Sunday morning about 2 a. rn. The shooting and throw ing was on the east side of the housS presumably from the road. Two shots were fired, one bullet passing through the east parlor window, breaking a slot off the shutter and burying itself in the opposite wall. One ball passed through the side of the house, struck a picture frame and fell to the floor. Quite a number of stones, brick-bats, etc., were thrown. The only occu pints of the house were the old couple, D,. Smith and wife. The ruffians left no trace bebled them It is1 thought the cowardly act was the work of aome drunken toughs from the country, who could think of nothing else that was mean and cowardly enough for them to attempt. The earth should open up and swallow such disgraceful specimens of humanity. Moulton has already suffered enough from this class of people Her reputation abroad is now as bad as that of Missouri in the days of the James boys. Moulton does not deserve such a hard reputation. The fact of the matter is mere is not a more quiet aEd peaceable class of people in Iowa than there is in Moulton. *The Murdy-Tipton has been so com □tented upon and exaggerated that those most acquainted with facts in case can hardly re^gnize the affair so commented upon in the papers The story of the Murdy-Tipt^n shooting affair as it appera in the Chicago Tribune is about aa near the truth of the matter as brown is to being black The several cases of shooting ai instanced in the Tribune and charged to the Murdy and Tipton prejudice in Moulton were mostly done in the country and one case even in Missouri. Moulton is not responsible for ail the meaneaa done in this county. Nor is there any such a Murdy or anti-Murdy feeling existing in thie town as outsiders seem to think; in fact there is no hard feeling at all among the citizens of Moulton. Moulton is not occupied by a aet of “hoodlums” but has suffered from exaggerated and lying reports made by outsiders. Come and see.

Saturday night about twelve o’clock people living in the rear of Ae Boston store heard unusual sounds proceeding from that direction and went out with a light to discover the cause. The noise ceased and no one was to be seen so the pee pie retired but were aroused again about one o’clock by the same sounds, but this time they did not get up to investigate. When the proprietors visited the store Sunday morning to see that all was right they found that all was wrong. It was discovered that thieves had broken open the wooden shutters and pried up the window which gave them scce*a to the gallery in the rear of the store. From there the robbers had gone up to the front where the fine silks were kept and had possessed themselves of fifteen pieces of the finest goods. Of these three were colored and the remainder black. Two large russet leather valises were taken from the show wiadnw and about $34 was taken from the cash drawer. Having made their selections of the silk the robbers carried their booty back to the gallery where tile wrappers were removed and the goods packed in the valises. From the wrappers the unfortunate owners are able to figure up the exact amount of their loss, aa the stock of silks had been but recently invoiced and the amount remaining of each bolt had been marked upon the wrappers. Silk runs into rn joey very fait as will be seen when it is stated that the loss from the fifteen pieces of eilk alone aggregates over $500. Aa yet no clue whatever to the thieves has been found. Neighboring cities have all been notified by telegraph and furnished with a description of the stolen goods and valises. Messrs. Bent z & Sons are certainly to be pitied in being the victims of this heavy robbery, bu: they are disposed to think that matters are not as bad as they might have been, as they were once robbed of a quantity of silks amounting in value to several thousand dollars. ■    •    Tear i*t*, Whether* on pleasure bent or business, I should take on every trip a bottle af Syrup of Figs, as it acts most pleasantly land effectually on the kidneys, liver and bowels, preventing fevers, headache* and other forms of sickness.
