J Price: 15 CuN't-s pkr Wskh AID FOR DEPENDENTS. IHE SENATE PASSES THE PENSION BILL DEPENDENT The Urgent Deficiency Bill Passed in the House The Army Appropriation Bill-The Tariff Bill-General Washington News. Washington, March 31.—-The senate met at eleven o’clock this morning and after some prelin.icary business the dependent pension bill was taken up, the first question being on Plumb’s amendment removing limitation as to the areas of pensions. Mr. Berry atked if any estimate had been made of the coat of removing the limitation. Mr. Plumb replied that the commissioner of pensions estimated it at about •478,000,000, ard the chairman of the house committee on pesions estimated it at $600,000,000. It would be somewhere about those figures. Mr. Frye regretted that the amendment was before the senate. There was danger of overleaping in the matter of pend ma When Cleveland commenced to veto pension bills, not only the democratic party ratified what he did but many business men of the republican party. He warned the senators that they were imperiling the truest interests of the soldiers and creating a prejudice against pensions Mr Hawley spoke in a similar vein The American nation had certainly not been stingy The pension expenditure next year would be nearly one hundred and thirty million dollars No nation in the world ever appropriated for the soldiers a sum compared to that He begged old soldiers to remember that the objection of getting into another war would be. not the cost of carrying it on, but the conse queries of it; and also asked them to remember these enormous sums of money came out of the pockets, very largely, of people ss p )or as themselves. He related an anecdote of General Grant on the lat-ler’s last visit to Washington, when, in a conversation on pensions, he said: “If I were president, I would sign any reasonable bill to redeye the distress of an honest soldier or his widow or children; but I would net vote one dollar to the able bodied men ” That last expression, said Hawley, sank into my memory and that is my platform. I don’t believe my state wants me to add five hundred million dollars to the debt of the republic. discussion Plumb’s rejected.

He spoke at some length on the matter The Montana election case was then called up and the senate adjourned. XHE HOUSH. Tile Urg«»«r D«<1 oleaey and Arm? Apprrpdatitfn Billa Passed. Washington. March 31 —In the house the resolution was adopted calling on the sectary of state for information showing what changes are made by foreign countries since 1879 in the rates of duty imposed on breadstuffs and what laws had been enacted or regulations made in such countries since that date obstructing, prohibiting or in any manner inter-fen lug with the importation or sale of such arteries. Mr. Henderson, of Iowa, presented a conference report on the urgent deficiency bill and it was agreed to, the only amendment remaining in dispute was the one appropriating $20,000 to enable tho secretary of agriculture to locate artesian wells. Further conference was ordered. The bill was passed, depriving the United States judges of the authorly to give an opinion on a question of fact.

It passed in the senate Saturday and this morning Clarke called it up in the house and it passed without any great opposi lion The anti-trust bill came up as a special order. Russell had introduced a bill em bodying the main features of the Missouri law, and the ways and means committee had proposed a substitute therefor The bill was taken up and read section by section and no trouble encountered until frees ment for any article purchased from a trust or combination, or individuals connected therewith. This section was de fended on the ground that it was taken directly from the Missouri law, and there it had been declared constitutional No amendments were made to the bill, and it was ordered to a third rerding, and passed by a rote of seventy-nine to one, the opponent of the bill being Mr. Potter, of Cherokee county. It is more than likely the senate will pass the same bill, and this will give Iowa one of the sever est anti trust laws that ever has been enacted. As the bill is of more than ordinary importance it is given in full: Flection I.

The senate then adjourned till 7 30 The senate this evening disposed of seventy seven bills, the majority of them by indfc finite postponement. Only legalizing acts and bills recommended for indefinite postponement were considered. WHI Witless Movements Des Moines, March SI.—This week promises to be a very lively one for this city and state. On Wednesday will occur the anti-saloon republican conference, which is likely to bring together four or five hundred objectors to the present law. The state executive committee of another organization—the state temperance union—will also meet Wednesday, and the democratic caucus license bill is made a special order in the house for the same day. The legislature is softening somewhat toward the temperance question, and it is now said that a license hill would go through the house with colors flying if there could be an assurance that it would meet the ap proval of the senate The senate committee on the suppression cf intemperance has reported favorably both the Lawrence and Schmidt bills. THOSE FLY CLEUKS. TMe Loud Female Element In the Stat* Legislature Correspondence of Thb Hawk-Btb. Des Moines March 31. -1 have in mind a little instance which happened not long ago, it may perhaps not amount to a great de&land yet when a stranger who was visiting the “scenes of the wise” asked me if a certain committee clerk was the daughter of a certain mem ber I could not help but smile. The reason of his question seemed to lie in the fact the young lady was seated on the arm of the member’s chair and her au burn tresses mingled in close proximity with his brow. No, she was no relative and yet perhaps felt a daughter’s affec tion for him who might (this was prior to the day of appointments) be the means of placing her in a position to earn a little three dollars a day. I have seen others in an occasional ramble through the corridors at the noon hour show themselves graduates in the art of flirtidg and not at all backward in bringing their knewledge to light. It’s certainly nice, certainly commendable to be social and pleasant, agreeable and courteous, but alas these bounds, it maybe unwittingly, are often overstepped, and wearing a cloak of indifference or independence as to the opinion of others some young lady acts in a manner neither becoming nor commendable. It would be much better and have a tendency to raise themselves in the estimation of others if they would forego some of the admiration and little jokes, lose part of life’s pleasures, and make some sacrifices at least for appearance sake, and should they still wish to be “hail 'ellow, well met,” why, let it be outside of the walls of the capitol. I de not wish to say all lady committee clerks act in this manner nor that they are the only ones who do. I have in mind several who are connected with both legislature and other state offices who are j est as bad. And then the female lobbyist. she is here with all her corruptability, although for the fair name of Iowa let it be said our legislators are not easily in fl Hence d by women they would blush to introduce their wives to. Perhaps these evils are always necessary accompaniments to a legislature, but I trust to see the day when there will be an improve ment and reform; and a good place to begin is to reduce the number of com mittee clerks to ten in tne senate and thirteen in the house.    Odin. TM* Friz* lew* Family. Dubuque. March 31.—August Meyers, of Independence, has probably the largest family in this slate. If there are any larger they have not turned up He is fifty two years of age, and his wife is forty seven. She has given birth to fifteen children, seven b >ys ai d eight girls Every one of these children is now living The eldest is thirty one years old, and the youngest four years of age. Mr Meyers has never been called upon to employ the services of a physician, except when each member of his family was ushered into the world. Mrs. Meyers is a healthy, handsome and lively matron. Both are cf the Jewish race, and both enjoy in the highest degree the esteem of their neighbors. BfOlksri a av* a Fend. Boone, March 21 —Frank R chardsoc, who lives at Ridg*port, near Boone, will be tried at the present term of the district court for assault with intent to commit murder. Frank and his brother, Dave, both claim a piece of Des Moines river land and Frank met two of Dave’s hired men who had been chopping on the disputed tract and pointed an immense horse pistol at them in a threaten ing manner. While the preliminary ex amination for this offense was being held in Boone, Frank terrorized the people here by going about the streets with the •ame pistol cocked and heavily loaded looking for Dave The trouble has made a sort of feud in the Ridgeport neighborhood and it is freely predicted that some body will ^ie before the trc uble ends. Mr. J W. ts*a bow Dead Special to Tri Hawk-Btb. Fort Madison, March 30 —Mr. J. W Benbow, who was run over Thursday by the east bound Santa Fe passenger ira n, died last night at 10:20 He withstood the shock of the amputation of his legs so well that, lh nigh Buff erin g mu cli pain, it was hoped he would ultimately recover. Saturday evening at seven, how ever, he began to sink rapidly and it tai soon seen that an early death was inevitable. He was conscious to the last, and calling his children to the bedside bade them farewell. Mr. Benbow was fifty five years of age and leaves a wife and five children, all grown. FoagMi a Polle*mas. Special to Tbs Hawk-Btb. Marshalltown, March 31.—At a late hour last night Policeman Yeager tiied to run in a drunken man and was set on by a tough named John Clark. Yesger was knocked down in the mud acd generally battered up and Clark started away with bis friends. The policeman got up and called on the parties to halt and after firing two shots at them they did so. One ball went through Clark’s hat just grazing his skull. Both prisoners were then taken in and this afternoon Clark re ceived a heavy fine for resisting an officer. A VALUABLE OLO MAP. TM* UBlt*« Stat** a* Divided bf G**|-rapM*r* stxty-Flv* Y*ar* ag*, 8ioux City, March 31.—A great deal has been written lately about old maps of Iowa and the northwest, and the interest in the matter has caused the digging up of time stained documents in the hope of finding something just a little older than is possessed by anyone else. Miss Helen Graham of this city has a map of the Ucited States that was among the effects left by her father. It was printed in 1826, acd it is in a very fair state of preservation. It is 17 by 21} inches in size, and folds up like an ordinary pocket map of to-day and is enclosed in pasteboard covers. The information is given on one corner that it was “drawn from the most approved surveys, and published by Solomon Schoyer. New York ” It was engraved by G. W Merchant of Albany The country east of the Mississippi river ^divided as now, except there is no Arrested tor Elgamf. Special to Tin Hawk-Iyb Davenport, March 31 —A week ago last Thursday a couple came here from I Chicago who registered at the St. James hntel as M. R Ferguson and Lila M Rosco. Two days later they were married at the parlors of the hotel, and a day or so after that they went to a boarding house and took rooms together ss man and wife. Saturday evening a detective came down from Chicago, located them, filed information against them and Sunday afternoon they were arrested on a charge of bigamy and lodged in the city house of detention. They will be held to await their trial. Isvlsnly Baread. LeMarb, March 31.—Mist Belle An drew met with a serious accident Saturday morning while building a fire. She supposed the fire to be entirely out in the stove and had placed some kindlings in the stove and some kerosene. When stooping over to light it the blaze sud denly started np and fired her hair. Her ing the situation in the devastated dis trict has been gloomy to-day and many people to-night are broken in spirit, though their physical wants are supplied. Most of the streets in that district are ankle deep in mud and water. Tee worst result of the wet is not sc much in additional injury to property ai in the suffering of the illy-protected people. Scores of families are protected only by hastily put up boards or canvass and they are wet and ccid. There is plenty of food, however, and the relief committee and agents are striving in every way to supply proper protection from the weather for all. The heavy snow, however, has greatly retarded the repairs in the residence district and a vast quantity of household goods to day has been partially or wholly spoiled by the damp ness The tobacco warehouses are pretty well protected and it is not thought that the loss will be serious. Mayor Jacobs, in an interview this evening, said he was satisfied that the number of those killed outright and those who will die from wounds will not reach one hundred and fifty. the total number of dead. The total number of dead so far is ninety-three and the wounded are about one hundred and fi'ty in number. Of the latter batween twenty and sixty are not expected to live. fatalities in webster county. Louisville March 31 —A late special from Henderson, Kentucky, says, the total number of killed in Webster county is forty and of wounded eighty. THREE JEW GHOULS ARRESTED Three Russian Jews were arrested last night whi:e setting fire to a demolished store on Market street in the midst cf the shattered district. The fellows will be severely dealt with Besides this there has been but few criminal attempts since the storm. Mrs. Barnwell, whose husband, the rector of St. John’s church, and his son were killed, was robbed of all her jewelry and money, and even the body of her dead husband was not respected, his gold watch being taken from bis pocket. A WATER FAMINE FEARED. Lowville, M*rch 31.—It has been snowing since early last evening and it is feared this has greatly damaged the goods in the tobacco districts. The heavy snow has also interrupted the work of repairing which was actively pushed all day yesterday and has otherwise irflic'ed hardships on the homeless and destitute A water famine is now threatened. The river already at such a high stage that the injury to tho pump ing station at the water works could not be repaired is g ing up and so long as the flood continues nothing can be done. It i9 estimated the reservoir now barely hold three days’ supply for the city. A BAD BREAK AT AUSTIN.
