Such a pro po-aition, it wan Baid, could not secure a mpjcrityic. the house. It was finally decided to commit the subject to a subcommittee of five senators and five representatives who will continue the work of hunHug for common ground on which thoy can stand. The two subcommittees, consisting of Senators Aldrich, Allison, Jones, Sherman and Teller, and Representatives Bavne, Barline, Conger, McKinley and McKenna, this afternoon practically came to an agreement although no formal action was taken. The measure which f uiad acceptance deals 'with silver only. Tho two principal provisions are, Aret, that the secretary of the treasury be di rooted to purchase monthly four million five hundred thousand ounces of silver; ii* d second, that the notes issued in payment the;efore bo redeemable in lawful m o acy__ XLI ft HK VI-Ll KS! CELESTIAL. H*raict I T«rtr A mend m tats to th* l l*lr.Bill Washington, April 15 — Senator K /.arid to nay pri Bunted the amendments he propose I to offer to the "Chinese enumeration hill.” He proposes to make the certificates read "sufficient” evidence of a lawful ringt to remain in the United Slates instead of “sole” evidence, and to except all children of Chinese parents born in tho United States from the pro-visians of the bill. Another amendment strikes out the third si ction, which provides for the arrest and deportation or imprisonment for five years, of Chinamen found after September I, 1890, with-proper certificates, lf the section is not stricken out Evarts will move to make the term of imprisonment six months. Section seven requires that Chinamen leaving the United States shall surrender the cert)ti jate for cancellation. To this E parts proposes the addition that any Chinese person other than laborers who has or may hereafter lawfully enter the United States and who departed or hereafter departs, bs entitled to re enter upon evidence satisfactory to the collector of custr ms that he or she has heretofore been in the United States and is not a Chinese laborer; and the collector of customs shall issue a certificate to each person on re-entry which shall have the same force as the census certificate the secretary of the treasury for information as to whether since the adoption of the treasury regulation of September 28, in reference to the transit of I Chinese through the country and their departure therefrom, any Chinese entered for transit under such regulation failed to depart from the United States ia due course. Mr. Batler offered a resolution, which was referred to the committee on contingent expenses, modifying the one hitherto agreed to so as to authorize a select committee on the five civilized Indian tribes to investigate the status of j the negotiations in regard to the Cherokee outlet with power to send for persons and papers and visit the territory. In connection with the resolution he sent to the clerk’s desk and had read a letter from Chief Mays, urging that tike course be adopted, while J joes of Arkansas intimated that the object of Chief j Mays was procrastination. Mr. Hawley gave notice that he would call up the Chicago world’s fair bill next Friday The Montana election case was then taken up and Morgan addressed the senate He referred to the recent democratic successes in Helena and Butte as a response to the attempted fraud in seating the republican claimants. If those election s, he said, had gone the other way, there would have been no trouble in referring tie case back to the people Now, he supposed that was impossible He declared if Montana were now asking for admissiod as a state, "with all that filth dinging to her skirts,” she would be kicked from the threshold and, he insisted no man had a right to claim a seat as a senator from Montana unless he could do so on the certificate of the governor of that state. Ct nill -cates had to be signed by the governor and countersigned by the secretary of state. The republican claimants had not such certificates. The democrats had certificates signed by the governor, but, unfortunately, not countersigned by the secretary of state It would not be very long, he said, until the little cloud in Montana, which seemed “no bigger than a man’s hand,” would sweep like a cyclone and tear the republican party all to fragments. Mr. Daniel argued against the majority report. Mr. Vance created amusement by reading the fellowing telegram received from Butte this morning: Hurrah for honest citlz°ns Who vindicate tho right, Hurrah for law and liberty, The people won the fight. The republican corruptionists Went Wk eping to their fate; For tho voter* placed the bm upon The men who stole the a ate. The mourners s; eak In whispers, There s oreoe upon 'he door: Thti G o P. was kl I cd bv stealing prec net ihirty-four. Mr. Hoar said as he understood the facts the democratic majority in Butte, which a year ago was 800, had been reduced to about 250, and that at precinct 34 there was not a eingle voter left. All of those apparent voters had gone like last year’s snowbank Mr. Vance—My information is entirely different. Butte gave a republican majority last year, and there has been a great “turn over” in consequence of "subsequent proceedings” Without concluding his speech, Daniels yielded for a motion to adjourn; and after an agreement that the vote would be taken at five o’clock to-morrow the senate adjourned.

Stone, second vice president of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy railroad com- j pany, and general manager of the entire Burlington system, has resigned his posi tion, and will retire from the service of that company June let, next. He has taken this atap in order to accept the presidency of the Chicago Telephone! company and Central Union Telephone I of this city. Since the death of President George Phillips about a year ago, the position has been filled pro tempera by Norman Williams, who retired in order I to give needed attention to his private business. Stone has been in the service of the Burlingtcn road for twelve years Previous to the fall of 1888 he was general manager of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, proper, and at the time mentioned was advanced to the place which he now holds. The inducements which led him to make this step ht rein set forth are understood to be purely of a financial character. No action has been taken yet by the company in the matter of filling the va Caney which Stone’s retirement will cause. LABOR TROUBLERS. Yard d Higher BUGAR AND WOOL. the Two Articles That Still Bother Tariff uevUere. Washington, April 15 —A protest, signed by sixteen republican representatives, has been presented to the committee on ways and means against the sugar and wool schedules as published. These representatives urge upon the committee that a reduction of twenty-five per cent in sugar and an increase in the duty on low grade or carpet wools, from 2J to 39 9 IO cents a pound, is as great a change as should be made. The manufacturers cf in greta carpets say the change in the duty proposed in the schedule will increase the price of their product from 50 to 99 cents a yard and practically wipe out the business, silenc ing four thousand looms and enforcing idleness upon thirty thousand workmen. The signers of the protest, it is understood, are from all sections of the coun try and while nothing of the kind is contained in the documents, an understanding exists among' them that in its present shape they will not vote for the bill in the committee of the whole in the house Another republican member, Coleman, of Louisiana, says that unless further ad vised by his constituents he will not vote for any reduction on sugar. The republican members of the ways and means committee were in session this afternoon considering the sugar and wool schedules. The bounty proposi tion aa applied to sugar was presented definitely to the sugar manufacturers. They will accept the bounty in place of tho present duty if they can be assured that it will be continued for fifteen years. HUE SSNATZ. Senator Wilson’• Resolution Conserm-l»g OEIusso Travel.

Washington, April 15 —The judge advocate general of the navy to-day submitted a report to Secretary Tracy in the McCalla case recommending that that officer be tried by court martial on the charges based on the facts developed during the recent investigation by the court of inquiry. The secretary approved this recommendation and ordered the court to meet at the New York navy yard next Tuesday. It is thought very probable that Lieutenant Ingersoll will be tried by a court to be subsequently ordered THE AMERICAN CONSUL TO TANGIERS. Tne secretary of the navy this morning cabled the commander of the United States steamer Alliance at Gibraltar, ordering him to wait there until the arrival of Consul Matthews, and then to sail with him to his post at Tanglers. It seems there are certain diplomatic rea sons which officials are not willing to disclose that make it desirable that the consul should make his appearance at Tanglers at this time on a man-of-war. He expected to reach Gibraltar to-day. DORSEY 8 TREASURY FUNDS BILL. Representative Dorsey, of Nebraska, to day introduced a bill providing for the disposition of the funds in the treasury. The bill provides that money required to be deposited with the United states treasurer for redemption of National bank circulation be counted into the treasury and treated as funds available for the reduction of the public debt and for the current expenses of the government. All funds held in the treasury for the payment of the matured debt and interest due and unpaid on the public debt be similarly treated.

The circuit court is made the appellate court exclusively except it has the power to issue all redeemable process. The circuit court shall consist of the present circuit judge, and also another to be appointed in each circuit by the president, by and with the advice and co sent of the senate.

Chicago, April 15.— Judges Altgeld and Tuttle of the circuit court will issue a call for a mass meeting which, it is thought, will be held within a day or two, with a view of orbitration of the differences between the striking carpenters and the master builders. The strike is of such serious proportions that if the differences are not settled within a week it is thought the planing mills and brick makers here will have to shut down, thus throwing out of employment many thousand men. THE CHICAGO CARPENTERS. Chicago, April 15.—The numerous efforts made by the masters to-day to place non-union carpenters at work on jobs were for the most part futile. The day’s developments apparently dem onstrated that the strikers had the bett of the situation. The masons and bricklayers’ union has come out in an official notice supporting them.

H. B. Hartzler, editor of the Evangelical. Yesterday the plaintiff did not appear and the court entered a non-suit. This put the costs of the case on plaint ff, and as the defendent had a great number of witnesses who came from Chicago, Cleveland and other distant points, these will amount to several hundred d blinis.

In the conference presided over by Bishop Etcher a let of resolutions were adopted deploring the “strife earned by the rebellious faction trying to do incalculable ic jury to the church,” and advising the conference to follow the instructions of discipline and directions of the general conference. The resolutions furthered-vise the non-surport of “The Evangelical” and the “D. A. Ze ztung,” two papers, which they claim furthered the discord. Bishop Bowman has just returned from the Iowa conference and was warm !y greeted A resolution was adopted favoring inauguration of lay representation in the church ss recommended by the hymens convention last September.

Referring to the branding of members of the conference as rebels, the resolution says:    “We hurl back the accubation with righteous indignation.” All congregations are requested not to endorse any scheme in such a church, and the hand of fellowship and reconsideration is offered to all who, seeing the errors of their ways, would return to the conference.

Speoiai to Th* Hawk-By*. Ferris, IU., April 15 —When the announcement was made to-night that Ferris had again voted to license saloons a wild, wobbly yell went up from the bleary eyed bums who stood about the polls wiih watering mouths and hands in penniless pockets.

BUSHNELL STILL BOOMS" Special to la* Ha wk-En Philadelphia, April 15.—The two days’ celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Military Order or Loyal Legion began this morning with a meet ing of the commandery-in-chief, at which R. B. Hayes presided. He estimated that when all have arrived the attendance will number about three thousand five hundred companions of the order. Between seven and eight hundred of this number are accompanied by ladies. General Wager Swayne offered a resolution that at the next annual meeting of thpi commandery-in-chief the con-tatk»R be so changed SB to permit of a commandery in London for the benefit of companions who may be temporarily or permanently residing abroad. At the afternoon session General Swain’s resolution was withdrawn because of the belief expressed by many that it would be a dangerous precedent to change the constitution. The rescla tions for the abolition of grades were voted down. At the Acadamy of Music to-night the ceremonies incident ty the celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversity of the order was held. The building was profusely and beautifully decorated. Many distinguished men wert on the stage and the building was crowded with an audience of companions of the order and invited guests. Several brief addresses were made including one by ex President Haves, the commander in chief. He spoke brit fly of many tributes to Lincoln and said they bring us to the question of our beloved society the Loyal Legion. What is it doing? What can it do worthy of Lincoln’! fame? Our highest striving must be to support and advance the work which Lincoln did in behalf of his country and all the world. What were the ideas by which Lincoln became forever the type, the representative, the very incarnation of the spirit and purpose of the Divine war? Our reply is “Humanity;” the anxious solicitude for the welfare of his fellow men; his sympathy with the oppressed and suffering; his hatred of wrong to the humblest human being; our common brotherhood. These sentiments and sentiments lite these filling his soul and being the guide of his life, are at once the se cret and sure foundation of the enduring place which Lincoln holds in the affections of mankind. No where oan the lesson of his wonderful life be morp A flv studied nor more fondly cherished than in this army society, which traces its origin to that awful time when the ending of that life was felt as personal bereavement by all who fought the good fight that was so en nobled and consecrated by the death of its martyr chief. Tnat lesson, while it contains almost the whole future of our country, iv short and simple- Our America to day is drawing near to the parting of the roads. Dazzled almost to blindness by contemplation of the unrivalled swift ness and splendor of her march to prestige, to power and to ride?, our country may be tempted to rej act or may neglect the message of Abraham Lincoln. That message was often repeated by him in words, and always exhibited in his life it can be easily given in simple sentence His whole life seemed to say to his coun trymen: “See to it that every son and daughter of our republic, so far as human laws and human conduct can avail, shall have an equal chance and a fair start in th9 race of life.” To reject or neglect this and our government ceases to be republican, except in name, and that doom which the Almighty has appointed for all shams is not far off. On the other hand, let the American people, especially all who stood by Lincoln on the perilous edge of battle in support of the rights of human nature, remain steadfastly true to the ideas for which they fought and we shall thus do all that in us lies to like the destiny of our country to the stars, and to entitle her institutions to share in that immortality which, un der tile allotment of providence, in affairs of the notions, belongs always and only to eternal j ostice The speech was received with great applause. A feature of the evening was a beauti ful musical program rendered by the Marine band. At the conclusion of the ceremonies the companies went to the Union League club, where a serenade was tendered them. A BLUS BABY. BlnM af rn Child Wfeoa* anta la af ladlca Tlat. Pittsburg, Pa, April 15.—Evan Evans and wife, both Welch, who live in a Jo boat on the river bank, have been blessed with a girl baby with a blue skin, not an ultra marine but the color a piece of white muslin takes on after being rinsed in indigo water, or of liquid kalsomine. This color is not alone in the face of the child, but extends to its body and limbs. The attending physician says that the bluish oolor of the skin is caused by a faulty construction of the heart. The result of this malformation is that the longs do not get an opportunity to pump a proper supply cf oxygen into the blood, hence the red corpuscles lose their practical criticism and would adopt what was good whatever it was found. He would cooperate with all persons having | at heart the interests of Prussia and aiming to foster a monarchic feeling in Prussia and national feeling throughout I the empire.__ general foreign news.

Thomas Smith, of Portland, Maine, as recording six remarkably warm winters within a period of forty years. In 1735 January was pleasant and moderate and February was a “sum mer month;” in 1738 January came in like April, 1740 there were but two snow storms; February was a summer month again, and March the same; in 1751, January 15, the frost was entirely out of the ground, February was like spring, and “the winter ends a wonder through the whole.” In 1755, in January, the fish, as they are reported to have done this year, “struck in” from the sea, the weather being so warm. February was delightful, and March blustering, bu* soft as May. In 1773 Mr. Smith records a summer day on January 27, “wont! ir ful moderate,” and February 9, “no snow since December 29 -wonderful weather. We saw two robbins.” In the year 1775, February 27, the New York Ga zetie and Post Boy reports “last Wednesday the weather was so uncommon warm that many young lads went into the river to swim ” In 1172 the temperature was so high in England that leaves came out on the trees in January, and birds hatched their broods in February. In 1289 the winter was equally mild, and the maidens of Cologne wore wreaths of violets and corn-flowers at Christmas and on Twelfth Day. In 1421 the trees fl >wered in the month of March, and the vines in the month of April. Cherries ripened in the same month, and grapes appeared in May. In 1572 the trees were covered with leaves in January, and the birds hatched their young in February, as in 1172; 1585 the same thing was re pealed, and it is added that the corn was in the ear at E later. There was in France neither snow nor frost through, out the winters of 1538, 1607,16C9, 1617, and 1659 Finally, in 1662, even in the north of Germany, the stoves were not lighted, and trees fl >wered in February. Our country. ZACK IREIX.. [Written for the Hawk-Ey* ! Patrick Henry wisely said: “I know of no way of judging of the falure but by the past.” Let us apply this maxim to the United States. But little over one hundred years have rolled away since the United Colonies struck from cfi their limbs their shackles forged in the glowing furnaces of British oppression and British jealousy. The men who shouldered the revolutionary muskets and braved the rage of the British lion, have slumbered but a few years in their honored graves. Their grandchildren are still with us. Yet within this short period, how wonderful has been the development of Our Country! From a population of 3 600.000 we have increased to about 65,000,000 From thirteen weak, impoverished colonies, have sprung all the vast wealth and terr! tory over which the stars and stripes proudly float In 1776 the Indiana and the wild beasts roamed in almost unmolested possession over the vast territory west of the Alleghenies. In 1890 all is changed. Flourishing farms and villages are now where once the wild deer fed in peace; and where the Indian warriors pitched their wigwams, are mighty cit ice The howlings of the wilderness have given place to the voices of civilization. If the growth of the past forma a key to the growth of the future what pro greta, what glories, what wonderful achievements will not the coming years bestow upon Oar Country! Great it was in the days of Roman glory to have been a Roman citizen; but immeasurably greater will it be in the years to come to have been born beneath the stars and and strips “The flag of the free and the emblem of the brave.” Grand, indeed, have been our achievements in the past; but the bright heavens of the future are radiant with promisee of yet more glorious achievements. Well may we exalt Oar Country and magnify its splendors; for soon the rising sun thst glitters over the Atlantic, and setting, reddens the waters of the Pacific, will have looked upon the fairest, Mott prosperous nation in all its course tines time began.
