I h« Home .I Jut KmolutlOB Condor kilo* thii a pp ole* I in tnt or Medical Kximtntr* Washington, April 17.—Messrs. Sanders an I Power, the new Montana senators, wore in their seats this morning. Under the terms of a resolution in the executive session yesterday Banders aud Powers wore assigned by lot to the clauses of senators whose terms expire in 1893 and 1895 respectively. Among the petitions and memorials presented wa r one from the Charleston board of trade protesting against the passage of the Butterwort anti-option and future bill. Among the bills introduced was one by Reagan proposing an amendment to the constitution for electing senators by a vote of the people A number of bills making appropriations for public bilildings were teen passed, among them bring one for Mankato, Minnesota, $150 OOO. The bill for tho appointment and retirement of John C. Fremont as major general in the army was passed. The house bill to tranfer the revenue cutter service from the treasury to the navy department was then taken up for consideration. Mr. Sherman opposed the bill which was laid over and the senate proceeded to consider the house joint resolution on the appointment of thirty medical examiners for tho pension bureau without reference the civil service laws. Mr Faulkner moved to strike out the provision taking tho appointments from the civil service and Cockrell said he had hoped some republican—tho party of civil service reform—would have raised his hand in defense of civil serv’c This precipitated a breezy political debate. Cockrell taunted the republican senators with lack of sincerity and said the commissioner of pension is now trampling under foot the civil service law and rules approved by the president, iu which he is aided and abetted by the secretary of the interior. If republicans intend to trample the civil service law under foot, it should be done in a bold manly way, and not by skulking behind this j 'int resolution. He charged that the object of the pending measure was to destroy and break down the civil service laws. A vote on Faulkner’s motion resulted yeas 18 nays 22 —not a quorum. Aid-rich. Hoar and Sanders (republicans) voted in the affirmative with the demo crate. The roll call disclosed the presence of forty four senators. Mr Hoar moved to amend the amendment by inserting the words "under regulations to be prescribed by the President of the United States.” These examiners, he said, were to be appointed only for a brief service— an emergency—and this was an additional reason why the general civil service rules should not apply. It was perfectly clear to him that the record of no party, no president, and, he sub pected, no senator would be found abso lutely in accord with the strict letter of their declarations in regard to civil service reform. Mr. Plumb hoped the senator from Massachusetts would limit his confes sions to himself, and commented upon "the combination which seemed to exist between the democratic party and the senator from Massachusetts.” The bi! he said simply put the whole question of appointments in the president’s power It did not seem to him the bill shonlc have excited debate. The appointments were mere temporary ones. After considerable farther discussion Hoar modified his amendment, to reac "The examination for the appointment of these examiners shall be under regulations prescribed by the president.” This was agreed to—yeas 88, nays 8—anc without finishing the bill the senate ad jonrned.

Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, North and South Dakota and Washington praying that sugar, lumber, salt, binding twine and materials entering into its composition, be admitted free of duty and that a cut of at least fifty per cent be made on woolen, cotton and inen fabrics.

It was then decided by the builders to discharge the union men in anticipation of a strike in May. BAI LUO AD MATTERS. in the N#w Cob fusing Element I Western Unto Situation. Chicago. April 17.—A new confusing element in tho western rate situation came to light to day. A lake aud railroad line has been established between boston and Sioux City by way of Jill nth, taking in the Fitchburg and West Shore roads, Northern Steamship line and the Sioux City and Northern road. The line, it is under* st od, is controlled by the Great Northern road and its policy is to be to lower the rates wherever they are not by other 'ices. This development has decreased the hopes of the western railroad men for better lines. RAILWAY POSTAL CLERKS. Chicago.

April 17.—A fire, caused by the explosion of gasoline, dam aget a restaurant and two adjoining stores on the east side this afternoon about $1,500 New York, April 17.—The New York World of Sunday has a three-page inter view with Senator Ingalls, of Kansas, on the present political problems, candidates, and a hundred and one other questions of interest. The instantaneous camera reinforces the stenographer's pencil and all of the senator’s characteristic attitudes are brought out in a telling manner. In reply to the question "What do you think of modern democracy?” the senator said: "The democratic party, having neither conscience conviction, nor defined principles, inevitsb’y allies itself with dis content and is arrayed against social order. It is strongest where public and private morality is weakest. Its citidels are in the south where society is distinctly feudal, and in great cities, where the ignorant and criminal elements are most energetic. It has no beliefs, maxims, or formulae. Its creed is the instruction of Jefferson—that in a popular government wealth, intelligence, and morality are ultimately no match for numbers. For twenty five years its only policy has been to complain, to oppose, to deny, to protest, and ultimately to acquiesce in what the republicans have done. So, when Cleveland came in, ba-ing without plans, purpose, or policy, his administration floundered pitiably both in domestic and foreign affairs, was contemptible in many things and feeble in all, and left absolutely no impression whatever upon history except in the matter of vetoing bills for pensions and public buildings.” "Do you imagine, senator, that Mr. Cleveland will be nominated again by the democrats for the presidency ?” CLEVELAND WILL BE NOMINATED. "O, ye*; Cleveland will be the nominee in 1892 even if New York should be divided or against him. This is inevitable. It is written. He will be the first, and the rest nowhere. Democracy nevei had such an ideal exponent and representative. His dull, heavy, wooden platitudes, laborously written out and committed to memory; his stolid and shallow conceit; his affectation of wis dom, purity and patriotism, and what he calls his ‘solemn sense of duty,’ impress the average democrat with a feeling of reveaence like that which the Chinese aundryman feels for his Joss.” "What is your idea, senator, of a diflaite American policy?” "The American policy should have for ;s object the unification of the continent ’he Polar sea should be the northern >oundary of the republic and the south era boundary should ba the interoceanic canal. Lock at the existing co ditions. We have practically reached the limit of our agricultural domain. We are approaching that period spoken of by Macaulay as dangerous to republican inst! tutions, when the vast migrations to these undeveloped regions will have ceased, and when the artisans and toiling masses concentrated in the large cities will have no outlet for their surplus num ben and no demand for their labor. I expect to see tho valleys of the Mississippi and the Amazon linked together by the great agency of modern civilization he overflow of population will thus find peaceful fields of profitable effort. "The interests of the west and south are identical and they should be unified Their alliance upon all matters affecting their natural welfare is inevitable. If they coalesce they will be invincible. We shall hold the purse and wield the sword of the nation, and we shall use them, not for oppression, but for justice. hese great communities, that were only separated by the system of slavery, have since its destruction been alienated by factions that have estranged them only to prey upon them, and to maintain political supremacy by their alienation. Unfriendly legislation has imposed intolerable burdens upon their energies; invidious discrimination has been made against their products; unjust tariffs lave repressed their industries. Th ultimate coalition of all the political forces of this section is inevitable. The west will then secure its emancipation from the control of the Atlantic sea board This is one cf the events of the near future We will then treat these Atlantic and Pacific appendages with ustice—in fact, I might say with more ustice than they have hitherto shown to us.” AN ESTIMATE OF HARRISON. "Senator, would you mind giving us your estimate of the administration of Resident Harrison?” "Harrison’s administration has been much more successful thus far than Cleveland’s was at the end of his first year. Cleveland satisfied nobody, and was openly and unsparingly denounced by his party organs. It is a great mig take for a president to suppose that by neglecting his friends he can propitiate lie enemies. Cleveland got no support 'rom the republican party by allowing republicans to remain in office, and he alienated many democrats. The most formidable error of Harrison is regarding himself bound to follow a pernicious precedent. Cleveland saw his blunders a year too late to enable him to recover. Most people are human and prefer that reform should be tried on their enemies rather than on themielves. And if President Harrison acts on this line he will have no trouble. It is too early to predict what the verdict will be. The statistics do not exist. Two years hence will be soon enough. He has had a rocky time so far, but has acquitted him self with dignity, courage and pnulance His temperament is dispassionate, but his ideals are high, and I am confident that he will grow constantly in public estimation and approval ” eracy” ii i*i<i k? hive brought her and Mr. Wilkinson in very close relations. He resented the coolness shown her, and gallantly championed her cause. The friendship thus engendered between them blossomed into love in due time. Miss Winnie later on went to Europe with a cousin of hers, and is still there. Mr. Wilkinson some two months ago crossed the ocean to see Miss Davis, and spent several weeks with her sightseeing on the continent and pressing his suit When he returned they were betrothed    * Mr. Wilkinson is a bright and promis ing lawyer here, about twenty-eight years of age. His income is quite fair, but Mr. Wilkinson is not a rich man. It is a love match. The young man, how ever, moves in the very beat society here and stands high in the estimation of the community. The actual time for the wedding has not been set, but it is understood that the date will be in the near future It is vaguely hinted that there is no very remote connection between the European trip and the wedding trousseau. SIOUX IN UGLY MOOD. A Remnant of Bitting Ball’s Baas to ba Overawed by Hog alar Troops Pierre, 8. D., April 17.—Near the mouth of Cherry Creek, on the Cheyenne river, over one hundred miles northwest of Pierre, there lives a hostile band of Indians known among the Sioux tribes as the Two Kettle band. They are a remnant of Sitting Bull's crowd that was finally captured in Canada. These Indians number about two hundred braves and they still possess all their original hostility to the whites. Since the reservation was opened a flourishing town called Cheyenne City has started near the hostile camp, but on the cedar lauds, where have also been found gocd paying mines of coed. The whites are mining this coal, and the hostiles have threatened to massacre the entire colony if the work did not stop. Major Egbert, of Fort Sully, was in this city yesterday and gave these facts, stating that he had sent two companies of troops to the scene of disturbances upon request of Dr. McChesney, agent at Cheyenne, who wanted them to quiet any premeditated attempt of the hostiles to injure the white settlers. Dispatches also state that several companies have started for the scene from Fort Mead, in the Black Hills. No trouble is anticipated after the troops reach the spot. HE KNEW BUTER.

Special to The Hawb-Eyb Nauvoo, Iii., April 17.—A recent article punished in a Chicago paper concerning the life and achievements of "Gen.” John A. Bater, who with a few others discovered gold in California in 1848, recalls the fact that Nauvoo has a nardy citizen in the personage of John H. Lienhard, who was the friend and companion of Suter and was with him when geld was first discovered in California near Suter’s Fort, near where Ca-loma. California, now stands, on January 9, 1848 The story is a long one, and should it be given in its entirety, would make almost a volume in itself. Mr. Lienhard was bora in Bitten, Switzerland, January 19, 1822. He came to Highland, Madison county. Illinois, in 1842. In the spring of 1816 he, in company with Henry Thorneau and others, started to California in an ox team. They crossed the plains, suffer ing such hardships as only the pioneers of that early day encountered. Some of the party died from exposure, aud at one time the immigrants were reduced almost to starvation. Mr. Leanhard joined a volunteer company, organizing for the Mexican war, under Fremont. He got as far as Mon-terary, the old Spanish capital of California. Through serious illness he was compelled to leave the command. Mr. Leanhard was at Suter* s Fort, near Coloma, California, in 1848, when gold was discovered. His recitel of the wild enthusiasm of that time is graphic. Mr. Leanhard knew Gen. Suter intimately, and went to Switzerland at Suter*a request to bring thelatter’s wife and children to America, for Suter was a fugitive from Switzerland and dare not go there him self. Mr. Lienhard says that John A Suter, to his certain knowledge, was never in any army or any war, and fails to see where Suter received his military title. Mr. Liendard returned east a number of years ago and settled at Nauvoo, where he is one of the most honored of citizens. In an early day a family of Benders rented his farm in Sonora town ship, and they were a hard lot. They went away a year or two before the Bender murders occurred in Kansas. Mr. L'enhard, howevar, does not think his tenants were the original "Bloody Benders.” TOM GAY RUSSELL RETIRES. Tbs “Little Lord Fauatleroy’’ Flavor to bo Dropped from tho Bilio New Havbn, Conn., April 17.—Tommy Cedric Russell, who has been alter nating with Ray Maskell in playing the part of Little Lord Fauntleroy, received notice that his services would not be required after the expiration of two weeks His place will be taken by Wallie Edwards. The dismissal of Master Russel is not the result of any incompetency nor of any dissatisfaction on the part of the management. The trouble is that the boy seems to have been subject to too much family influence. His stepfather, A P. Lamprecht, became imbued with the idea that he was worth more, and for some time past has been demanding an increase. This ii given as the reason for his dismissal. AWFUL ACT OF A CRAZY WOMAN El" AUss Elliott swallows s Penknife With tho Bi ados Opts.

IMPRESSIVE FOIEBAL SERVICES OTO ml REMARK OF EI-SPEAIEI RASDALL A Throng of Distinguished Persons In | Attendance — The Cr. emmies at Lnnrel HUI Cemetery Near Philadelphia—Other Deaths* Washington, April 17.—This morning at eight o’clock the coffin containing the remains of Mr. Randall was borne from his house by a Equad of Capitol police and deposited in the lecture room of the Metropolitan Presbyterian church, which was appropriately draped. There it was visited by many of his late associates in the house, by Mr. Wsnamaker, and by a argo number of his friends, neighbors and admirers. About an hour afterward it was removed to the body of the church and placed upon a catafalque strewn with flowers. Several beautiful floral decorations were placed near it About 9:30 the carriages with the fami* J and immediate friends reached the church, and as Mrs. Randall, leaning on the arm of her husband’s brother, the two daughters (Mrs. Lancaster and Min 8usan), the only son and namesake of the dead statesman, and other relations, many of them from Philadelphia, moved up the aisle to the seats reserved for them in the right center. They were preceded by Dr. Chester, wearing a long white scarf and reciting the opening to the burial service, ‘ I am the resurrection and the life.” Soon afterward the men-bere of the joint committee of the two lout es, also wearing white scarfs, entered the church and took their seats in the eft center, the front row being occupied by four of Mr. Randall’s oldest friends and colleagues—Messrs. O'Neill, Carlisle, KcKinley and Holman. A little back of the joint committee sat Mr. and Mrs. Blaine, and near to them Vice President and Mrs. Morton, lira. Harrison, escorted by Mr. Halford, the president’s private secretary, and Chief Justice Fuller and his daughters. Mr. Wanamaker was in another part of the church. A large number of senators and members of the house, including the speaker and many ex members were also present. A deputation of about thirty uniformed members of the Grand Army of the Republic from Philadelphia, was in the church and afterward acted as an escort to the funeral procession. The great bulk of the congregation was com posed of Mr. Randall’s friends and neighbors, who loved him and sincerely mourned his death. The funeral services were impressive and beautiful. The music was rendered by the Schubert quartette, among the hymns sung being "Lead Kindly Light” and "Just as I Am Without One Plea,” which were Mr. Randall’s favorites. An impressive sermon was delivered at the church by the Rev. Dr. Chester, who eloquently eulogized the character and eminent public services of the dead statesman. The Rev. Dr. Melburn, the blind chaplain of the house, asssisted Dr. Chester in the services, which were dis tinguished by great simplicity throughout. There was a profusion of floral tributes sent by friends to Mr. Randall’s late residence and to the church, notably from the White House and members of the appropriation committee. Just before noon the remains were taken to the Pennsylvania railroad depot to he conveyed to Philadelphia for inter ment. at rest at laurel hill. Philadelphia, April 17.—The flags which have been waving for two days past in honor of the Loyal Legion cele Aration are at half mast to-day in mourn ing for the late Congressman Randall. A train from Washington bearing the remains arrived here about 2:30 o’clock this afternoon, stopping at Ridge avenue station, near Laurel Hill cemetery. The Samuel J. Randall association, Meade post, G. A. R., and the James Page Literary association were in waiting and the body was escorted to the Randall vault, which already contains the bodies of the father, mother, and brother of the dead congressman. Simple funeral services at the vault were conducted by the Rev. Dr. Henry C. McCook and the Rev. Dr. Chester, pastor of Mr. Randall’s church in Wash mgton, and they were assisted by other clergymen. A quartet of members of the Meade Post sang "Nearer, My God, to Thee” as part of the exercises. A special train from the city brought thousands to the cemetery who watched with silent re spect and many tokens of sorrow the final scene at the dead congressman’s resting place. hie, financial support having already . been obtained which would render powerful assistance when the situation should I I be defined by the committee’s report MONMOUTH VE BURLINGTON. CSM* CoU firths mat HUI Teem ta tke Macle City. Special lo Tbs Hawk-Sts. Monmouth, HI, April 17.—To-day’s game opened very unproprietously for the visitors, the home team having everything their own way up to the ninth inning. In their first inning Monmouth scored five unearned runs on Sanford’s base on balls, woolly errors by by Morris and Corbett and hits by Hatpin, Carey and Sieggs. Their next inning yielded two more runs, Corbett and Morris again adding to their list of errors, assisted by Helpin’s single. This woundup Monmouth’s run-getting, as they were unable to do anything with Murphy’s curves after the second inning. Up to the fourth inning the score stood seven to nothing in favor of the home team, but in their half of the fourth Burlington scored three times on a single, two bases on balls and Murphy’s corking three-bagger to right center. The fifth, sixth and seventh yielded nothing but goose eggs, but in the eighth the visitors scored once on Katz’s double and Breckenridge’s single. The score now stood seven to four in favor of Monmouth, aid when the boys from Burlington came in for their last half of the ninth it looked as though victory was ours, but our hopes vanished when Tully, Hines, Katz and Breckenridge rapped out sing'es in rapid succession, which, with Corbett’s base on balls, knocked out four runs and the game.

April 17.—Considerable excitement was created at the capital today by the discovery that an important clause in the joint rate bill which passed the general assembly had been omitted from the enrolled bill. The omissions occurs in the last part of the third section, and the words omitted are "the rates therein fixed are reasonable and just    maximum    rates.”    It leaves meaningless the sentence which occurs at this vital part of the bill. It was because these words were not in the Minnesota law that it was declared unconstitutional. In the original bill as in troduced railroad companies were com pelled to prove the rate was not just and reasonable, but owing to the omission,    the state,    if it    at tempts to    enforce the    law,    will be obliged to prove    that    fact and owing to such information being only in the hands of the railroads such task will be very difficult if at all possible The clause in question should read The rates established by the board of railroad commissioner shall go into effect within ten days after the same are promulgated by said board and from and after that time the scedules of such rales shall be the prima facies euidence in all of the courts of this that the rates htre.n fixed are reasonable and just maximum rates for the joint transportation of freight and cars upon the railroads for which such schedules have been fixed Many claim the bill was at some stage tampered with, but a fair impartial investigation of the facts indicate the mis aion is but the result cf great careless ness, first in the state printer, second ic the house railroad committee, third in passing the law without thorough con Biders'ion. By an examination of the origins! and printed bill it ii found the word "the” occurs at the end of two lines, one coming immediately underneath the other, and the type-setter left out the entire sentence which the proof reader failed to discover. It is very easy to see how this mistake occurred. The railroad committee in considering it in the committee, took the printed copy and amended it by the use of scis sots and pen, inserting several lines in various places, but did not correct said section three which was sissored out of the printed bill without change. This they vir tu*lty brought back in’o the house as a substitute for the committee bill. The same was passed and sent to the senate as there substituted for the senate bill under consideration It was read and passed without anyone discovering the fatal error. The enrolling committee reported it properly enrolled and Governor Boies evidently did not read it through or if so, did not discover anything wrong, as on April 8, prior to adjournment by seven days, he approved the bill. No blame can be attached to the enrolling clerk as the enrolled bill corresponds identically with the bill reported bark to the house by the railroad committee, and which bears all the endorsements of the passage, etc. The discovery was first made by Mr. Wilde, secretary of the Jobbers’ association. Should the bill fail by reason of this defeat, a strong pressure ill be brought by several parties to have the governor call a special seasion of the legislature.
