IE WILD’S FAIR BILL THE SENATE COMMITTEE OKDEKS VOSABLY DEPORTED. it fa Immediate Action Adil«d-It Pro Tides for a Naval Exhibition in New York Harbor—Other Washington News. Washington, April ll.—The senate quadro-centennial committee met this morning and ordered the world's fair bill reported with some amendments, one of which is Daniel's proposition in a somewhat emasculated form—the provision with respect to the president being satisfied with the bona fide character of the Chicago subscriptions by making it read that he shall be satisfied of the possible character of the subscriptions before inviting foreign nations to participate Daniel's amendment was modified go as to provide that some time in the spring —date not particularized—sometime be fore the date of the opening of the exposition there shall be an international naval display in New York harbor and roads, and a naval celebration in Washington at the time of the dedication of the statue to Columbus. There is no appropriation made in the bill for these celebrations, this being left for congress to provide some time in the future. Chi cago men agreed to these amendments in the hope that it would facilitate the bill’s passage, hut had them so modified as to not interfere with tho opening at Chicago. A 8Ub committce,fconsi8ting*of'Senators Hiscock, Hawley and Daniel, was appointed to make the bill conform to the expression of the wishes of the.com-mittee and to draw up the report! At the suggestion of Senator Farwell, Hawley was selected as manager of the..bill on the flnor. Just before the senate ad I Durned] this afternoc n Hawley reported the world’s fair bill with the amendments agreed upon by the committee. The following was proposed as the new section: Sec. 8. The president is hereby empowered and directed to bold a naval review in New York harbor, April, 1893, and extend foreign natious an invitation to send ships of war to join the United States navy in the rendezvous at Hampton Roads and proceed thence to said review. The president is further empow •ared to make asrangements for the on vailing of a statute of Christopher Columbus at Washington with appropriate ceremonies under his general direction, after said naval review and not less than five days before the opening of said exposition and invite the attendance thereat of the foreign representatives. The review of the District of Columbia national guard and troops and several branches of the regular army stationed at Washington to day was given in honor of the delegates to the Pan-America conference. The president, several members of the cabinet, General Schofield and other officers of the regular army occupied the reviewing stand. THEIR BLOOD MAS COOLED □Ch# Phelan-Fleming Duel WHI Not Como OIF Washington, April ll.—Representative Pnelan has written a card in reference to his trouble with Colonel Fleming. of Knoxville. In the course of Which he says, from one who had seemed IO anxious to force him to the wall. Phelan did not expect the plea that he (Fleming) ignored the code. Phelan says he does not defend the code, but has never been able lo see any moral distinction between doing another a malicious mischief forbidden by the laws of God and offering expiation forbidden by the laws of man. That he acted hastily in sending the message designed to elicit a challenge to a man who ignores the code, Phelan admits, but adds: "I assume that the bulldozing tone of Fleming’s refusal to accept a hearty apology was the result, among other contingencies, of an over • weening of personal courage. Colonel Fleming in his answer, says:    “I have made my self ridiculous. This is the time. But then, I didn't know Col. Fleming as I do tov.” Phelan, concludes that in view of the scornful and insulting refusal to accept a frank apology he thinks he can safely leave it to that portion of the world which is brave, just and generous to say whether what ho did was without palliation. _ THS SKN ATB. Th# Montana Bl#«tlon Ca###--Tfc# World*# Fair Hill. Washington, April ll.—The consideration of the Montana election case was resumed and as no senator sought the floor the yeas and nays were ordered on the first resolution and the vote was about being taken when Evarts rose and suggested that if no senator on the other side desired to speak he would proceed to make the closing argument in support of the committee’s report. He proceeded to state in detail the fads and the circumstances of the Montana election and to discuss tho powers of territorial canvassing board on which he said there were no limitations imposed by the statute in words. By that he meant (he said) that its powers were unlimited within the sense that belonged to the phrase to which it was applied and to the subject to which it was applied. Evarts said the proposition on the democratic side was that the senate was to be a canvassing board higher than the territorial canvassing board, while the proposition on the republican side was that the sen alo had no such power of revision. The latter, he said, was a proposition of the constitution, of the safety of the senate and of the equality of states. After further debate Hoar gave notice that on Monday he should ask the senate to remain in session until the Montana cate was disposed of. Mr. Hawley, from the committee on quadro centennial celebration reported back, with amendments, the house bill for a world’s fair at Chicago, and said he hoped to have it taken up and passed Monday.

Wood obtained a license to marry a Miss Lucy Miller, both of Oconee township, in this county. A few days afterwards the license was returned to the county clerk indorsed “indefinitely postponed” on the back. It has just been learned that the reason for postponing the affair was that the ady, being an ardent republican, ’ declined to perform her part of the contract because her intended, who is also a republican, had accepted a nomination as assessor on the farmer's ticket. He was elected, but as yet their differences have not been adjusted. OVERDUEW HIS?. 8ALARY. THE PHARMACY BILL.

Milwaukee, April ll.—A special to the Evening Wisconsin from Hurley says Lottie Morgan, a disreputable woman, was found dead near a saloon in Dss Moines, la., April As usual, the hour of nine to day found the senate in session, the chair intro ducing Rev. W. H. Rees, who led in prayer. On behalf of the special committee ic whom was referred the matter, Bun gas reported a bill providing for the removal of the battle flogs carried by Iowa regiments from the arsenal to the capitol. A bill was introduced by Vale from the committee on agriculture to confer rights in certain cases upon the State Agricultural society, the object of the bill being to relieve from the possibility of the State Agricultural society coming in con. tact with the powers of .the city bocause of the passage of the annexation bill. Caldwell’s resolution providing for a sifting committee of nine members web taken up. It£wa8 moveck by Finn to amend by excepting from that commit tee’s supervision the special order, namely, school text book bill; and further by Davidson, to except the mining bills. Taylor spoke earnestly in favor of such exceptions, while McCoy thought if these bills were to be made exceptions there was no use in appointing a sifting committee. He represented a large mining district and had voted for every mining bill that had passed the senate. Davidson said that these matters had been postponed early in the session because of McCoy's illness and later that they had been crowded out. It was evident to his mind that the senator from Mahaska desired the sifting committee chiefly to get rid of the mining bills, and he was therefore opposed to any such committee. The amendment to the amendment was lost, yeas 13, nays 27. the former being Barnett, Bayless, Bills, Davidson, Dun gan, Engle, Finn, Kegler, Mattoon, Mos-nat, Parrott, Taylor, Vate; absent or not voting were Brower, Cassatt, Dodge, Funk. G ibbie, Harsh, Kelly, Schmidt, Shields. Wolfe. Toe Finn amendment was lost. Woolson offered a substitute for the whole matter which was accepted bv Caldwell providing that bills and other matters other than appropriation bills be referred to the sifting committee and that after the Friday morning session no bills be considered except appropriation billa and those reported favorably by the sifting committee. An amendment further was offered by Dodge to except the ballot reform bill which had passed the lower house and to make it a special order for Saturday evening at 7:30, whereupon McCoy moved to amend the amendment to except the school book bill instead of the Australian ballot bill. Cleveland could not see why the school book bill should be excepted instead of the ballot reform issue, which was of vital importance. It should not be made^a party question. People differed radicallyaOnj the best method of proceeding in the school book matter, and it was a grave question, whereas the Australian ballot reform was being pursued .in so many progressive states without a question. The urgency of the school book measure was pressedr by Weidman,'as compared with the ballot reform question. Finn took the floor against the worthless expense of the Australian ballot, which, he said, was not demanded in Iowa. He had seen it estimated that •IOO a year would not’cover the/expense in each voting precinct. The machinery requiredjwas^expensive'anduseless and the voting system now was absolutely perfect. Groneweg moved-the ' previous question, .which prevailed. TheJ*McCoy amendment, substituting the school book question, for the ballot bill, prevailed; yeas4 26, nays 22. The resolution as amended was adopted. Again Dodge sought to ^bring up the ballot reform matter under a resolution making it a special order, and postpon ing the special order for its consideration. Caldwell moved to lay on the table the motion to postpone the special order, the vote upon which was yeas 23. nays 25 At this juncture the chair announced that the making of a special order, as indicated by.the Dodge motion, would require a two-thirds vote, and a second vote was proceeded with, but was lost. I^Dodge rose to a point of border asking ifu it at the time of the adoption of the McCoy .4 amendment, a two-thirdsjvote was not necessary. Woolson rose to a point >of order, stating the matters concerned were disposed of, which point order was declared welltaken. The pharmacy bill.was then -taken up as a speciaUordcr.} Bay less here rose and offered a substitute for the bill, reading a series of resolutions*by “ thepharmacists to the effect that the committee substitute was not satisfactory to them. Bayless said it was with reluctance that he ^introduced this substitute at this time but he was obliged to do so. He had assisted in making the committee substitute but had been dissatisfied with it. His substitute requires a bond, that sworn reports be made, and cuts out red tape. Caldwell entered into an extended explanation of the committee substitute, closing by saying that the senator from Clayton had acted in perfect good faith but that he had been driven to this sub stitute by the druggists. He moved the consideration of the committee substitute. Taylor defended the B ayless sub stitute, saying that he believed it was just the measure that .the druggists desired, while the other was worse than no legislation for them. Caldwell's motion prevailed and the bill was considered section by section. Several amendments were adopted. Previous to adjournment the lieutenant governor announced as a sifting committee McCoy, Woolson, Finn, Vale, Funk, Meservey, Bolter, Wolfe, Bayless The chair ruled that tiie pharmacy bill would have to go to the sifting commit tea. The senate put in a hard day's work on the pharmacy bill and when adjournment was taken for supper only a few more sections remained for consideration. The members of the pharmaceut ic ii association were on hand watching the progress of the bill and doing what they could to make the bill come out right The bill repeals the present law and provides that permits be granted by the tufe for the measure priposed by State Pharmaceutical association The senate sifting committee decided to report for passage tee senate bills to provide for the regulation, pnrchase and sale cf school books: to change the name of institutions for the deaf and dumb; to provide for the payment of salaries of s'ate penitentiaries; also the house bills to give the Agricultural society the power to regulate its police force; to abolish the Iowa weather service; and, to allow cities of a second class to levy taxes for building sewers. Tbe pharmacy bill discussion was continued acd the bill completed. Mr Bayless offered as a substitute the bill formulated by the pharmaceutical association Billa were passed as follows: House bill to allow tbe Rush Park railroad to run its track through the grounds of the lr dependence insane asylum: tbe house bill to legalize the act of the clerk of courts of Plymouth county; the house bill to equalize the transfers of real property by the executors and trustees of foreign wills; the house bill to legalize the incorporation of the town of Guthrie Centre. Adjourned THE HOUSE. The house this morning reconsidered the vote by which the Algona normal school bill was ordered engrossed last night and then reversed the decision This kills the normal school project entirely, it having been buried in the senate. Bills passed as follows:    To    compel railroads to change the names of stations to conform with the names of corporated towns or villages at the request of the railroad commissioners to compel rail road companies to connect crossing lines at stations by means of switches, “Y’s;” to authorize commissioners to preserve the form of annual reports of railroads; to compel railroads to place crossings where a highway is located; to compel railroads to put in private crossings. A resolution was adopted providing for the appointment of a sifting committee. The bills for the redistricting of the sta’e came up as a special order. Two were presented, both calling for one hundred representatives and ninety-one districts on the basis of 18,500 population. Tie house this afternoon took up the apportionment bill and after a short discussion the majority bill recommended by the republicans was defeated by a party vote—49 to 49, Hamilton and Wilson beiDg paired. The following bills passed; To legalize the acts of the town of Churdan; to provide for district purchssa of school books and supplies; senate bill to define and punish vagrancy; senate bill to accept the grant of the city park at Iowa City to the state for the purpose of erect ing a university building; to compel boards of supervisors to ascertain at me beginning of each year the amount of school funds on hard and require tbe publication thereof; to prevent life in suraDCQ companies from discriminating between individuals with the same ex pectation of life and in th* same class. The defeat of the republican redistricting bill was just as expected in the house this afternoon, the measure as proposed by them gives a very fair division of the northwestern part of the state, but the democrats do not want it that w?,y for fear they will lose some of tho districts they carried last year. The work will have to be done to fix up a compromise pretty soon or the election will be held on the same basis with district's the same as last year or a special s! ssion will have to be called to fix up the matter. The Bsyless-Tramp bill is now through both houses and as soon as it bscomes a law tramps will have a hard time in Iowa.    ' The acceptance of the city park granted by 1°wa City to the state will give a good opportunity for putting up a good building for that institution now. A bill for that purpose is through both houses and now needs only the signature of the governor to become a law. IOWA IN BRIEF. FBAKX BALZEB MHD WITH HIS HEAD HUTCHED DEAS IOWA CITY. The Sheriff sad Deput iesHard at Work on the Case—Two Mea Arrested ob Suspicion —Other Crimes and Casualties. Special to Th* Hawk-Eye. Davenport, Iowa, April ll.—Early this morning the men on a Rook Island j train discovered the body of a maw lying in the grass at the side of the road at a j point about a mile and a half east of Iowa City. There were evidences of a struggle. The dead man’s clothes were in disorder and his hand clutched al handful of hair, evidently torn from the head of his assailant. He had been killed with a club. Near the body was ound a gold ring such as is used instead j of a hook or bar to fasten a watch chain t o a buttonhole.    The buttonhole where it had rested was torn out, and no watch was to be found. In one pocket wi thirty-five dollars. The coroner was summoned and the investigation developed the fact that the dead man was one Frank Balzer, and that he came to Iowa City Thursday with anotbor man, name unknown. The two men stopped together at a boarding house. While in Iowa City Balzer remarked to a man that he was afraid of his companion, and wanted to get rid of him. He said that he had left a hundred and fifty dollars with the Amana society the day before, fearing that he would be robbed by his companion. He said they came from Homestead, Iowa, and that his companion wanted him to come to Davenport with him, but that he was afraid to do so. Later he stated that he would come to this city and tnat he should walk, so that the men whom he feared might suppose him penniless. The two men left Iowa City about four o’clock Thursday afternoon and came in this direction. Nothing more’is known of,their movements after that time The sheriff and several deputies are hard at work on the case and the men have already been arrested; one at West Liberty, and oae at Oxford, a station near by. Both tally with the description of the suspected men. The amount of money stolen from the body besides the gold watch is not known. A RAUK WMH FIRE. Aa FpceUtaff Ban of a Burning Freight Train.

The thieves effected an entrance by cutting out a panel of the rear door and unfastening the lock. They were evidently well acquainted with the prem ises, for they did not arouse the least alarm. The goods taken consisted of jewelry, silk handkerchiefs, neckties, £1 innel shirts, hats aud clothes, in all about $200 worth. Emerson Woods, now in jail awaiting a trial, is thought to be one of the per petrators of the crime and the A evidence is strongly against him. About twenty-five'of our citizens attended the G. A. R. encampment at Des Moines this week and report very favor ably in regard to the kindness shown them by the citizens of that place.

A gentleman long afflicted with dys pepsi* and insomnia from medicines, determined to find out what out door exercise would do for him. He planned to take a trip across his state afoot. The first day he walked but little; but every day he grew better and stronger and increased his gait and distance proportionately. After a couple of weeks traveling thus* he was near the point of destination, and desiring to reach it next day, he increased his gait to an unusual degree, exhausting his muscular strength earlier than a more temperate walk would have done hours after. It was now nearly night, and he was in a sparsely settled part of the state. Gladly he would have put up in any shelter at hand. Worn out, he obliged to push on a cour se of miles farther, when he came to a miller's.

Central Christian Advocate. lf we are to aita>n an ideal government, practically as well as theoretically, we must go back to first principles, and to the methods of the founders of the republic, who were taught by experience the price of liberty and knew hew to guard it, The town meeting, ylich w&s a school for practical politics, and which was scrupulously attended bv voters generally, has become almost, if not entirely, obsolete. And there has beer. the greatest change in the character of the men who are most active in our local politics. In an earlier dsy the most reputable, intelligent and influential citizens took a lively interest in the political affairs of their community and largely controlled them To day the management of our local politics in the cities and towns is in a great measure turned over to the ward bummer and his horde of vicious followers. Our great cities are controlled by Irishmen and Germans. There are thousands of legalized voters in this country who never attended a primary meeting, and who could not, if pressed to do so, tell just what was tbe object of such a meeting Except in the rarest instances anything like a full vote is not cast at elections The saloon keeper never fails to use his ballot, nor does tbe man whose vote is for sale. The foreigner who has just re-crived his franchise will go to the polls two hours before they are opened, aud that too in a driving rain, rather than lose his vote. It is well known that a very large per cent, of the men who do not vote are Americans, many of them men of intelligence and often having large interests at stake. They are “too busy” to keep posted in political matters or even to attend an t’cctioa. These are familiar truths, but we auld be fa’se to our trust did we not repeatedly press them home to our readers. No form of government has ever yet been organized that will run itself. If the self respecting, honorable class of society dots not control its State and municipal affairs, the most corrupt elements will. And if the determined efforts to chang* the distinctive and most. glorious feater*? of American civilization are succt-sfui it wi! mot be because we can not help ourselves, but because we will no* In St Louis, where scarcely any pretense is mad* of enforcing the Sunday law, and where the saloon is the controlling element in poMrics, there are scores of churches, with thousands of members who represent millions of dol-ar* invested within tbe corporate limits. If these church members were on a given day to move with all their interests from St Louis the city would be killed beyond all hope of resurrection. Now, dees any one believe that these members, who stand in such relation to the materia’ interest of St. Louis, could not, if fully alive to the responsibilitiee imposed upon them individually by our form of government, thoroughly reform this city and make its government the pride of the country? Oar cities and governments are just about what we make them or permit them to be made.
