I am not prepared to admit that the soldiers of our army are more intemperate than other classes of men. If a soldier gets drunk his very uniform makes it noticeable and we may do them ae a class an injustice. Certainly the more I see of the soldiers of our army the greater respect I have for them.” WASHINGTON GOSSIP. The experiment of eleven o’clock meetings of the senate is not proving a success as several calls were made before a quorum was present to-day. In the house to-day Lawler, of Illinois, presented the protest of M. D. Wells and other business men of Chicago against any duty being placed on hides.

It calls attention to the recent accident to the City of Paris, and says the rivalry between the competing lines of steamships is bo keen that the considerations of safety and even humanity are often lost sight of; it holds that better protection to human life and property can be afforded by a system of ocean patrol than by any other means.

Particularly is this true of Illinois and Indiana. But six counUes in Illinois, Carroll, Clay, Henderson, Kankakee, Lee and Peoria, estimate the present condition at one hundred per cent. In all other counties reports of damage range from ten to sixty per cent. It is safe to say the average condition of wheat in this state outside of the favored counties named is thirty to forty per cent below the utual average at this sea son. The same state cf affairs prevails in Indiana, only seven counties reporting the condition good. Ohio reports make a better average but show a great decline in the past few weeks. Kentucky reports show a falling off of about twelve per cent in the general average. The average for Missouri falls about six and one haif per cent lower than the last report, although many counties report the condition good. In Kansas the reports show but a slight change. Fifteen coun ties report injury from frost and dry cold winds, but in the majority of coun ties the condition is reported at one hundred per cent or over. In Michigan and Wisconsin the condition of wheat has continued to decline. But two counties in Wisconsin report the condition to be one hundred per cent. The other counties have suffered from ten to fifty per cent. The general averages from reports received are summarized as follows: Illinois 76 per cent, Indiana 76. Ohio 88, Missouri 84, Kentucky 87, Kansas 82, Wisconsin 72, Michigan 67. Glasgow, Ky., April I.—In the lower part of this and Allen counties, Thursday's tornado did immense damage.

Litchfield, Ky., April I.—The news of damage done in the northwestern part of this country and the southern part of Breckinridge county by the recent tornado has just reached here. At Falls of Rough several houses and bridges were blown down and Mrs. Edwards killed. At McDaniels eight or ten houses were damaged and the wife of John Jar bee killed. Two children of John Lucker are reported killed and several other persons more or less injured. THE LACONIA CIRCLE FLOODED St. Louis, April I. —Information from what is known as the Laconia circle, a section of country between Helena and Arkansas City, which is practically surrounded by the Mississippi and White rivers, is to the effect that the people there are in a bad condition and suffering. The water poured over the levees on all sides and in three hours the circle was filled even with Hie surface of the rivers, and in some places was eight feet deep. This occurred so suddenly that the people had no time to do anything. Their houses, stock and everything else they owned was in the water, and in some cases swept away before they knew what had happened. A steamei from Helena brought out one hundred and thirty people and a large amount of stock Friday, and the steamer Titan, with barges, will bring out all the remaining stock and as many of the people as desire to get away. Before the steamers arrived many of the people took refuge in trees and on tops of houses to escape being drowned. Many planters were utterly ruined, the remainder having no seed to plant, even should the waters subside in time to put in crops. The suffering has been and will be great, and aid of all kinds will be necessary to carry the people through. THE BREAKS CAUSE RELIEF. Helena, Ark., April I.—Owing to the break in the levee at Austin, Mississippi, Helena has received some relief, the river falling slightly here.

During the day Bis A Very at Greea- Molvted Sltaatloa Ville. Greenville, Miss., April I.—The situation has been very wet here for the past twenty-four hours. The heavy rains of last night and to-day made things disagreeable in addition to the encroachment of the back-water in the northern portion of the city. The water, which has not spread much since last night, is now flowing over the tracks of the Louisville, New Orleans and Texas, thereby preventing the water from spreading very much in the town. The water from the Huntington break if now passing back into the river through the Offutt break, thereby relieving the waters at our back considerably. The Easton break is, however, letting out a great quantity of water, which is fast spreading over the eastern portion of the country and in some places it is quite deep. To day the mayor appointed a committee to look after and caid for those in distr ass in the over flowed portion of the city. The cotton exchange to day sent a report to the Associated Press saying the con dition here is not as bad as it would seem to be to the outside world. Should the flood pass off in thirty days, a good crop can be made, which has been the case in nearly all cases of overflow. LOU IS VILLX! RECOVERING RAILROAD MATTERS. A New Rate oa California Frail Sfcfp-meats. San Francisco, April I.—The freight committee of the Transcontinental Railway association has adopted a new freight tariff for orange and lemon shipments. The present rate to the Missouri river is $1.12£ per hundred pounds and $1.25 to Bt. Louis and Chicago. By the new tariff these two rates are re moved and one of $1.10 is substituted.

Contributions continue to come in with gratifying liberality and these are systematically applied. Notwithstanding the unfavorable weather considerable is being done toward restoring order in the devastated district and on Main street a few of the firms are about ready to resume business. The work of removing the debris from the Falls City hall have been abandoned as there are probably no more bodies in the ruins. One of the greatest dangers of the pres ent situation is a water famine. The waters in the reservoirs will not last more than three days and there is no im mediate prospect of pumping in any more as the pumpi&g station is still crippled. DESTRUCTION IN ILLINOIS. St.Louis, April I.—Information from the tornado swept region of southern Illinois and Kentucky is to the effect that fifteen famalies in the Bay Bottoms near Gotconado, Illinois, are rendered home less and moat of the members are in jured.

There was also a third ticket in the field, headed by N, S. Murphey, the labor citizens’ candidate.

THE KANSAS ELECTIONS Topeka, ^Kan., April I.—Elections were held in Kansas to-day in several cities of the first, second and third class for councilmen and members of school boards. In nearly all the cities the battles were fought on purely local issues. The chief interest attaching to the elections was the exercise of suffrage by the women. At Leavenworth a woman was nominated aa a candidate for the council and three for the school board on the republican ticket. Something over six hundred women were registered but not more than half of them went to the polls. The democrats ran a straight male ticket and it was elected with the exception of one councilman. All the women were defeated. At Emporia the women were warmed up to the highest pitch. The political excitement was over the candidacy of Mrs. Jackson for re-election as a member of the school board. The issues were on prohibition, and to reduce the salaries of schoolteachers. Mrs. Jackson’s platform was ‘ Good salaries for good teachers.” Returns to-night indicate her election. At Topeka about seven hundred and fifty women here registered but little over half of them voted. They had no candidates in the field and were not directly interested in the election. The women of Atchison had three candidates in the field for election on the school board. The returns indicate they were all unsuccessful and the straight republican ticket was victorious.

To this Bismarck made an Acquiescent reply “I AM BISMARCK.” Prince Bismarck introduced himself thus, “I am Bismarck.” Twelve hundred railroad men formed a torchlight procession to-night and marched to Bismarck’s residence, where the ex-chancellor was serenaded with patriotic songs. Bismarck responded in a speech. After thanking the visitors, the prince walked the entire length of the procession and was ^ greeted with deafening cheers. He evinced considerable emotion and was obliged to wipe away the tears that stood in his eyes. His speech is regarded as proof of his keen intelligence and marvelous memory The Reichanzeiger, at Berlin, announces the appointment of Baron Bieberstein as foreign secretary of state.

Des Moines April I —The house went back to the regular order of business again this morning and began with presentations of petitions. Most of the subjects considefed by the petitioners were in relation to prohibition, school-books and woman suffrage. A large number of committee reports were presented, the clerks having got limn written up and ready for presentation. The bills introduced were: By Thornburg—To establish a normal school at Dexter, Dallas county. By McFarland—To provide for compiling and reprinting the territorial statutes. By Lewis—To amend section 903 of tne code in reference to appeals in highway cases. By Wyman—To amend the laws relating to the management of tho permanent school fund. Mr. Been c Sered a resolution which was adopted ordering an evening session tor the consideration of routine matters on the calendar. The bill to do away with the Iowa weather service was taken up and made a special order for Saturday next. Last night’s work in the senate was brought over and the house began the work of disposing of some of the bills thereby placed on the calendar The two Johnson county ditch bills were passed, one before dinner and tho other just after, and then the school book bills were taken up. School text books was all that could be thought of in the house this afternoon and the bills up for consideration were the committee substitutes for all the school bills. A majority of the committee recommended Power’s bill for county uniformity and district purchase The minority of the committee recommended a state uniformity bill. The method pursued was to have the majority bill read first and perfected then ihe minority. After that a vote was to be taken to substitute the minority bill for the majority bill so that issues would come strictly before the house. The first bill was read section by section and quite a number of amendments were made. The main supporters of the bill were the most activo in perfecting it, McFarland seeming to have charge of it. Holbrook took care of the second bill and made a number of amendments to it. When both had been perfected a number of speeches were made, Smith of Mitchell, Head, Graeser and Holbrook favoring and McFarland opposing state uniformity. Before the speeches were all made the house adjourned till 7:30 At the evening session nothing was done but attend to legalizing acta and indefinite postponement During the session one hundred and thirty bills were disposed of. TITE SENATE. The senate started in to settle the normal school question this morning. The matter came up with on the bill by Funk for the location at Algona. This bill received a favorable report from the normal schools committees of both hous* s Senator Funk made a short speech favoring the measure, as also did Senator Brower. Senator McCoy moved as a substitute the adoption of the bill providing for three normal schools. This was followed by a substitute for the substitute, by Taylor. He desired that $2 OOO be ap propriated to each of seven private nor mal schools in the following places Bloomfield, Shenandoah, Columbus Junction, Decter, Algona, Le Mars, Decorah. This was discussed at some length, and on a vote being taken, was overwhelmingly defeated. Senator Seeds then offered an amendment to McCoy’s substitute to make the number of schools one. Before a vote was taken on this the senate adjourned ntil after dinner. On reassembling, some time was taken up with receiving petitions and bids. All the bills presented were legalizing acts. Senator Dodge was ready right after dinner to call up the bill to allow taxes for public improvements, but as nothing but routine matters could come up, he could not get a chance to work it in at the beginning of the session. The talk was continued on the normal school bill till about 4 30, and then a vote was reaches on the bills A great deal of work bas been done by the Algona, men to sustain the work done by the committee, but the triple combine b Ii backed by LeMars, Oskaloosa and otcer places, put in very good work and ii the end won. Several senators did not desire to take part in the fight and dodged into the cloakroom and remained there until after the rod was called. The vo’e was very elope and Price, by changing, made it a ' ie. Then Gobble was brought in and his .vote decided the matter, the vote standing 24 to 23 in favor of the amendment. Tae bill was then read a third time but failed of passage by a vote of 15 to 23 A motion to reconsider was filed, so a normal school may yet be established. The friends of Algona feel very sore over the matter, but will keep at work and try to get matters fixed up. Immediately after the vote was an nounced Senator Dodge called up the bill authoring a tax for public improvement, and it was passed without opposition. An effort will be made to get it through the house early, and then Bur- hip * Chinks” Zigenfelder was badly bruised and had a thumb split, and others were more or less done up.
