The carpenters demand forty cents per hour, eight hours a day, yearly settlement, and the use of scale wages by the conference. The bosses are willing to concede eight hour demand and pay 37* cents per day which the men would accept as a compromise, but absolutely refuse to recognize the union. It is believed there will be no change in the situation before Thursday, when the builders hold their regular weekly meeting. THE PLUMBERS SETTLE - There was a hitch this morning in the negotiation of the plumber’s strike, as the juniors objected to the reduction of their demanded wages. The arbitration committee finally settled the matter this afternoon. The agreement is to run two years from February I, last, journey men to receive* $3.60 per day (instead of $3 75 for which they struck), and the juniors to get twenty-five cents per day increase. The men are well satisfied and work will be resumed tomorrow. _ THE SISTARE ASSIGNMENT. ce Dome Not So Groat as at First Reported. Prophetstown, 111., April 8.—-An Associated Press correspondent who arrived this afternoon finds the early reports of last night’s storm grossly exaggerated. In the track of the storm, half a mile wide and a mile long, an elevator, three houses and several barns were wrecked and a number of other buildings slightly damaged. There were no fatuities. Edward Hammond, wife And child and the family of Clark Reynolds were all painfully bruised and cut by falling debris, but none of them are in a dangerous condition. The storm struck the town about seven o’clock last evening and continued for about ten minutes. The rainfall was about two inches and the hail very heavy. The tornado was local, no other points reporting it. The property damage here will probably amount to $20 OOO. another account. Bock Island, 111., April 8 —The strange storm-cloud which passed over Rock Island about six p. rn. on Monday, darkening tbe sky and giving us a sprinkle of rain, proved to be a veritable cyclone when it reached the earth. It broke down several buildings at Joslin Prophetstown, demolished the C.. B. & Q. depot, scattering its timber over the tracks, greatly damaged the grain elevator, wrecked a number of stores and dwellings and severely injured a number of persons._ TERRIFIC HAUB STORMS Reports of Damage to Fruit Trees and Windows in Illinois. Roberts, 111., April 8 —There was a tremendous hail storm here last evening, it continued about ten minutes and nearly all tbe window glass in the west side of houses were broken. A great many of the hail stones were of a phe nominal size two being picked up of seven ounces weight. Several people caught out in the storm were severally bruised by tbe tremendous shower of ice. A HEAVY HAIL STORM. Bpooial to This Hawk-Eyi. La Harpe, 111, April 8 —At about four o’clock this afternoon after a very sultry day there passed over this city from the northwest the heaviest hail storm that has visited this vicinity for fifteen years. The hail stones were large and completely covered the earth, de molishing windows and doing other damage.   _ Heavy Wind ut Denver. Denver, April 8 —The most terrific wind storm in many years swept over the city early this morning. Many houses were unroofed and the walla of several buildings in course of erection blown down. No one was injured. A Heavy Rain Storm. Cleveland, O., April 8.—A terrific rain storm visited Oberlin, Ohio, to-night, flooding the cellars of business houses on College street to the depth of four feet. The water rose rapidly in Plumb Creek and the people on the flats expect to be compelled to leave their homes before morning. Two Young L malva Drowned. Budson, Ont., April 8.—Last night Miss Ettie Snarey and Miss Tres Huffman, while crossing the river were drowned by the upsetting of the boat. Charles Start who accompanied them and who escaped was unable to save the young ladies owing to the swift current. It Cansos a Great Sensation on Wall Stroet. New York, April 8.—The assignment of W. H. M. Sistare and Harold Coleman, of the firm of G. K. Sistare* s Sons, bankers and brokers, was filed to-day. George Reed, of Detroit, and M. Feldmeir, of New York, are the only preferred creditors. Henry S. Bennett, counsel for the assignee, says no one can tell the amounts of defalcation. He states that the deficit caused by Hilger may amount to $600,000. THE SENSATION ON WALL STREET. New York, April 8 —The defalcation and subsequent failure yesterday of G. K. Sistares Sons, brokers, is still the sensation of Wall street. The amount of embezzlement is not yet made public but it is the prevailing opinion that it will reach a larger figure than was anti cipated. A great deal of regret is heard on all sides over the suspension of the company as the local members of the firm have all been very popular. The crash, it appears had been expected and the company had closed all their contracts ou the stock exchange. The result was the failure caused little or no trouble to tbe stock market. RAILROAD MATTERS. Statement of tbs Pittsburg, Cincinnati ans St. Louie Railroad Company. Columbus, Ohio, April 8.—The report of the Pittsburg, Cincinnati and Bt. [ Louis railroad company for 1889 shows the net earnings were $1,684,000; surplus for the year $626 OOO. Deducting losses on the leased lines leaves a surplus of on all lines for 1889 of $286,000 against a deficit for 1888. WHY EMIN DESERTED. He Ie Getting Tired of Hie Bargain. Cairo, April 8.—It is stated that Emin’s hasty acceptance of Wissmann’s offer of a post in the pay of Germany was partly due to his disappointment at not receiving a reply from the Khedive to his request for a gift of £500 for the purpose of building himself a house at Bagamova. It seems that the fact of the I matter is that the Khedive acceded to Etnih’s request, but that his reply to that I effect was delayed in transmission, this [leading to Emin’s misunderstanding and subsequent desertion of the Khe dive. Zanzibar, April 8.—Emin Pasha has arrived here. He shows less eagerness concerning the proposed expedition than I his employers desire, and it is reported that he wishes to cancel his engagement and return to Europe before deciding as to his future plans. GENERAL FOREIGN NEWS. nominations. This was warmly de-1 bated but was lost finally. Only a few amendments of minor im-I portance were made and then the I I bill was passed under suspension of the I rule by a vote of 86 to 9. The men voting against the measure were: Hobbs, Hospers, Jewell of Mahaska, McCarthy, Morrow, Loesbe, Steele, Van Gitan,Wal-| den—9. The absent were: Beem, Marti, Smith j I of Boone, Head, Brown. THE SENATE The first thing before the senate this morning was the license bill. It was the signal for a long debate. Senator Seeds regarded the question of adoption or rejection of the license bill as putting up character against money, the democratic bill calling for just that sacrifice. The course of that party had been inconsistent and irregular, and its present position, though it might be sincere, would not be held long. The question in regard to the law was not whether the cities of the interior should dictate to cities of the border, or vice versa, but whether the law of Iowa should be enforced in all parts of the state. Mr. Wolfe said all the members were opposed to drunkenness and the best method of handling the liquor traffic was license and local option as proposed by the bill. The present law was a good thing for corrupt prohibition lawyers throughout the state—for surreptitious dealers in liquor—but no one else. Mr. Weidman said the legal existence of the saloon in Iowa had been terminated and it should never ba returned, Mr. Ballingall said the policy of prohibition was a mistaken one, and the proper way was to let the traffic alone and the American men would do with it as was proper, the same as they do with other matter. Mr. Gabble, speaking of the amendments wanted the bill to die just as the one the democrats had prepared, and hoped the amendments proposed would not be adopted. Mr. Parrott contrasted the policies of the democratic party in Iowa and Pennsylvania, the former demanding high license, and the latter denouncing that system as a fraud. Mr. Bailey opposed the proposed measure because Iowa had progressed under prohibition and that condition of progress should be continued. Mr. Clyde said three classes demanded the passage of the law: Prospective saloon keepers, habitual drinkers and selfish men who wanted to benefit the county from the profits of saloon license. The amendment that no saloon license should be issued in any county until a proper inibriate asylum was built and that no saloon was to be located within three miles of any church, school or state institution of learning was defeated by a vote of twenty to twenty-one. mined in the permit that may be ie sued to ihe applicant, and with the statutes in such case made and provided, and such application shall be verified by oath, and shall be endorsed by at least thirty (30) freeholders, residents of the voting precinct wherein the permit is to be issued, including the immediate adjacent property holders.

I ANOTHER LONDON BUTCHERY. We—sa Marker** la a Meet Horrible Maimer la aa Ope* Street. London, April 8.—The murder last night of Helena Montana, a disreputable woman, at Hoberthsai, near Aix La Chappell* has created great excitement. The woman was killed in some mysterious manner in the open street under the eyes of passersby. Her throat was cut clee intended for the St. Louis exposi ion in 1890 that may be imported from iexico, was amended so as to read, ‘and other republica and the Dominion Canada.” The bill was then passed and a conference asked. Mr. Edmunds introduced a joint reso-ution (which was referred) directing the ibrarian of congress, eenate. house and the department of justice respectively, to deliver duplicate copies of law books to the law department of Howard uni versity. He said he had heard with astonishment that the law school in the District of Columbi* connected with the college that existed under the authority of the United States had deliberately and on consideration refused to allow person of some African blood, and in every respect gentlemen of extraordinary ability to attend law lectures on account of having African, blood in their veins. Howard University had also a law department; and he introduced the resolution so the law books, not needed for public service, might be donated to loward University and that that portion of their fellow citizens denied equal rights in other universities in the district might have a chance to learn some law The senate then resumed consideration of the Montana case and Spooner continued the argument in favor of the republican claimant. Much of his speech was directed against Governor Toole of Montana for his course in reference to the meeting of the legislature, and another portion to show that the aliens who merely declared their intention of becoming citizens (but had not been folly naturalized) were not entitled to vote. Mr. Pugh argued in favor of the mi nority report. When he had spoken half an hour there were but two seats occupied on the republican side of the chamber. Mr. George called attention to the fact and suggested that no quorum was present. The roll call showed only thirty nine senators present. Mr. Harris argued that the sergaant-at-arms should be directed to request the attendance of the absent members; agreed to Mr. Gibson moved to adjourn; not agreed to—Yeas, 24; nays, 27. The democrats voted in the affirmative and the republicans in the negative. Mr. Butler having stated that Pugh was not well enough to continue his speech, the Montana election case was aid aside for the day and the anti-trust aill taken up. Mr. Sherman said while the amended bill was not all he wanted, he believed it the Ust that could be got, and would vote for It. Mr. Vest said he was not satisfied on re ti ic tion that the public interest required the passage of the bill as it stood. After further debate the bill passed; yeas 52; nays I; (Bladgett). The bill as it passed is exactly as it came from the judiciary committee. Adjourned. THE HOUSE. Consideration of tho Naval Appropriation BIL Washington, April 8 -—The bill was passed granting the right of way through various reservations in Wisconsin to the Duluth and Winnipeg Railroad com pany. Tile committee on naval affairs called up the bill to prevent the enlistment of aliens in the naval service of the United States ard it was passed. Mr. Adams, of Illinois, called up the motion to reconsider tbe vote by which the house defeated the bill making ap propriation to supply the deficiency caused by the Silcott defalcation. The motion was then reconsidered and the bill passed. The house then went into committee of the whole on the naval appropriations bill. Mr. Sayers, of Texas, said the report of the committee did not sufficiently ex plain the provisions relating to large battle ships. The committee had authorized the construction of vessels that would cost $18,000,000 and yet it appropriated but five million to construct them as well as vessels already on course of construction. Mr. Peters, of Kansas, criticised the provision of the bill for three battle ships. What was the object providing those ships? Mr. Boutelle—To fight. Mr. Peters—To fight, where? If we are to be involved in a war with any foreign nation, it will not be on the Atlantic or Pacific ocean. Continuing, Peters said the strongest mandate was the dip lomatic mandate. Mr. Boutelle inquired whether the gen Heman would send a diplomat out to meet a British man of war. Mr. Peters replied that we now had a navy which could carry a diplomat to any part of any foreign country. The day for battle ships on the ocean had passed. He did not believe there was any danger of any foreign nation declar ing war against the United States Mr. Dolliver, of low* said the people west were in favor of the reconstruction of the American navy. With them it was a matter of national pride. The country could not get along with mere diplomacy. His idea was to make the nation so strong on the sea that back of the diplomacy would be the strength of the American peopl* manifested not only in protecting the coast, but also in protecting our commerce and citizens rn every part of the world. The bill was then taken up by sec tion* but without completing the de tailed consideration the committee rose and the house adjourned. LAND BILLS PAS8XD. The bill was passed in the house providing that persons settling on the second indemnity plat of the Northern Pa rifle railroad grant between Angust 1887 and January 1889 may transfer their en tries from that tract to other government land subject to the entry ; also the UU to cause certain land at the headwaters of the Mississippi St. Croix, Chippewa and Wisconsin rivers aet apart for reservoir purposes to be restored to the public domain.

It is supposed the Chinaman subsequently laid in wait for and murdered her.

Edna Dana and Ollie Prlestman. The ladies of Christ Church Guild had a good showing of friends at the Grand last night. The house was fully occupied by an audience representative of the culture and wealth of the city and many of the ladies and gentlemen were in regulation dress attire. It was very evident that Lent was among the archives of the past and that the opportunity afforded by the “Carnival Mili taire” to the socially inclined to come together again after the season of self denial was appreciated The interior of the Grand in consequence presented a scone of pleasin ’ animation, lit up by the bright costumes of the fair sex whose jeweled ornaments shimmered richly in the gas light and whose fans were in their hands to good purpose, in aid of the general effect. For six weeks past, to draft a wellworn but comprehensive phrase, ex pectation has been on tip-toe, anent the production of the carnival. And from a multitude of expressions heard at the close of the per formance we feel warranted in saying that it was decidedly the best drilled amateur cast that has given an entertainment of the spectacular variety in the city. Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Howe, the man agers and instructors in the enterprise, are entitled to a full meed of credit for the ability manifested in the preparato better results, comparatively speak ing, could have been anticipated from professionals    rehearsing * the pageant so excellently displayed last night. There    was a rhythmic precision of    movement that very few unprofessional organizations ever acquire, judging from local experience. The marching was strictly attune with the music and watching the accurately costumed Greeks and Romans, Spaniards, Italians and cute little J&ps in their attractive processional parade, one felt as though history was being vivified and repealed upon the stage. Class room memories recurred associating the court scene with the queen in her royal apparel, her elegantly costumed ladies in waiting, the pages end the host of reverent attendants kneeling around the throne, with things we had read when we had to and the use of which was not apparent until later on—and then materialized only in a very fragmentary way. Enthusiastic applause repeatedly attested the enjoyment of the house. It broke out spontaneously and with a vim that declared its genuine quality. There were several en* cores, notably those awarded the Tokio dance” of clever little Sadie Wood and Grade Bickenbach. who had the “Mikado” mincing step “down pat,” and comported themselves very gracefully in their amusing Japanese roles; the castanet dance by the Spanish senoritas, which richly deserved the hearty recall given the young ladies; the Italian scarf dance, a splendid performance—and, well, come to look at the program again, every single feature of the entertainment was encored, with a right good will. The tableaux of the Grecian refugees aghast with terror before the threatening spears of the Roman guards were finely given. In the rifle drill and contest of the Flint Hill Guards, notwithstanding the fact that sickness had compelled the drafting of several substitutes at the tenth and eleventh hours, the military exactitude of movement attained was simply remarkable. Mr* Howe expressed our sentiments in the observation, that considering the circumstances of the cai* “very few young men would have done as well.” We seriously doubt if there are in Burlington an equal number of youths of the masculine brand and a like age who could have been drilled to a similar degree of perfection. The evolutions of the young ladies elicited round after round of well earned plaudits and their splendid act brought the entertainment to a cl^se. The comic recitation r f Mr. Howe was awarded a recall. He is a practised elocutionist and gave his selections with an eclat born of long experience on the stag* Mr. Monfort gave an artistic rendition of calcium light effects during the evening. Mr* H. D. Squires presided at the piano with her well known ability and im the musical department was ably as listed by the house orchestra. To night the carnival will be repeated with several changes in the including a base ball Special to Torn 2 a J* Bn Kansas City, April 8.—With only two days practice as a team, the Burlington! of the Interstate league met the Kansas City team of the Western association, and they held the Cowboys, considered the stror gest club in the Western, to a tie for nine inning*, but lost the game in the tenth, the ecore standing seventeen to fifteen In favor of Kansas City. It was a game replete with brilliant plays on both sides and the Burlingtons proved themselves to be terrific hitter* Breckenridge, Burlington’s first base* man, who joined them here, played first way out of sight. Fuller caught a fault* less game throughout. Stephens and Fuller occupied the points for Burlington until the fourth inning, when the Cowboys^. who proved to be handy with the sticlg pounded out six runs. In the fifth Anderson occupied the box, and except in tbe sixth, when they scored four runs, the Cowboys could do but little with him The Burlington's likewise demoralized the    Kansas    City    pitcher    in the fourth inning and Swartzel and E. Smith, who had occupied the points, were retired and    Kellogg    and    Gunaon    substituted for    them Even    this change did not balk the Burlingtons, for they went right on    batting    the    ball in    a lively fashion. Katz, of the Burlington#, covered himself with glory by making a long home-run drive, sending in two men ahead of h’m The game being hotly contested, excited the greatest enthusiasm, in the large crowd that witnessed it and the attendance tomorrow will be even greater as the Barling, ton's hav j shown that they cm put up a first class article of base ball.

It it tim* however, that an agreement wu entered into by the creditors and others this morning that there should be no buying in those months, but there was no restriction placed on selling. Subsequently some of Fraley’s creditors put a broker in the pit who purchased May wheat freely, but there was no excitement and the prices, instead of going up, declined ic. Fraley has made no statement regarding his condition, but hopes to shape matters to his advantage in a day or two.___ A Arte invertase** Is one which is guaranteed to bring you satisfactory results, or in ease of failure a return of purchase price.
