CajTon*18 ®(^^ag0 3’ Batterie?i Staley, Washington, April 21.—On motion of Hawley the senate proceeded to consider the house bill to provide for the celebre ti on of the four hundredth anniversary of the discovery of America by holding an international exhibition. The only amendment reported by the senate committee is the insertion of a new section providing for a naval review in New York harbor in April, 1893, and for the unveiling of a statue of Christopher Columbus at Washington. Mr. Hale inquired of Hawley whether it was intended that the government should furnish the statue of Columbus. Mr. Hawley replied in the affirmative and stated that a bill for that purpose had pass id the senate and was now pending in the house. Mr. Vest said it seemed to be assured that because the house had passed the bill the senate was under some coercion to pass it. He protested against such assumption and said the bill would probably pass the senate by an overwhelming majority, but no measure should ever pass the senate with his vote on the assumption that the judgment of the house was coercive on the senate; that would be for the senate to abrogate its constitutional functions. Mr, Farwell asked whether such claim had ever been authoritatively made. Mr. Vest said as a matter of course it had not been authoritatively made be cause such idea would cover the author of it with confueion, but it seemed to be assumed in othir places than the senate He knew his opposition to the bill would be ascribed to the fact that the city of Bt Louis had been an aspirant as a site for the world'8 fair. That was post mortem proceeding, and he did not propose to introduce ghosts to disturb the equanimity of the senate or the tranquility of the city of Chicago. He had from the beginning opposed »11 legislation looking to an exposition in 1892 He had everywhere, publicly and privately announced his opinion that in his judgment the law should not bs passed which called it into existence. He did not believe the tem per of the people of the United States favored any such exposition. He did not believi the condition of the country jus-tiildU such a spectacular performance at this time The agricultural people of the country had neither time nor money to give to a national circus, such as was proposed. The people of St. Louis did not complain of the result of the contest for the site They accepted it as Amer leans always accept the result of an honest and fair contest. Beknow that it had been said of him in a Chicago paper that he had declared as a senator that in a contest between hades and Chicago for the location of the fair, he would support hades. As Chicago papers never lied it was unnecessary for him to state in a mild and not too emphatic way that he made no such statement. Hfe stated the opinion that in a popular election among the people of Missouri between hades and Chicago it would bs a very close poll. As to what his own vote would be, he had never declared it as between those two distinguished localities On the contrary, he was prepared to state that upon such a contest he would be strictly neutaftl [ Laughter ] Chicago, besides, was Mil of trusts, monopolies and com bines, <£id the latest authentic news from hades was that they were forming a trust there on sulphur in order to bear the market. There was high authority, also, for the statement that the water supply of Chicago was defective. He had before him an article from a Chicago paper stating that instead of a magnificent lake supply of pure water, the only supply came from creeks reeking with debris and corruptions of the stock yards. He took it that the same paper which had stated his standing as between hades and Chicago had also told the truth in that matter. Mr. Vest asked whether there had been in the whole contest for the fair any thing that elevated or dignified the American character at home or abroad ? If they were to assume a patriotic standpoint, or if the idea was to illustrate national life on the four hundredth anni versary of America, why was it not done in the name of the people of the United States without contests and squabbles over localities? Why had it been a sort of action between the cities as to which would give the most money and entail the smallest expense on the government? If it was to be a national matter why did not the nation itself (with an overflowing treasury) take upon itself the expense? The whole matter from the beginning had been simply an advertising scheme and a basis of municipal rivalry between the great cities of the United States. In this connection Vest read extracts from magazine and newspaper articles and commented upon them as a scandal to the American name and American attributes. He referred to Chauncey Depews speech before the senate committee, and to his mention of the town of Peekskill as his birthplace, and as the centre of a larger population than that of which St Louis was the centre: and said Mr. Depews modesty had forbid him going any further to show who Peekskill did not aspire to a site of the World's fair. He (Vest) suggested that after that great act of parturition the vital energies of Peekskill were exhausted, and that she had regained ever since in a.state of in nocuous desuetude. [Laughter.] Mr. Vest read from a book gotten up in the interests of New York a poem, the nature of which was a satire on Chicago's -wide extent of recently annexed territory. The following verse is a sample of it: “The shades of night were falling fast, As o’er a Kansas prairie paseed, A youth of preset ce gaunt and thin, (But vast the shoes he travels in). He’d driven ninety mites that day. Nor seen a shed where he could stay. ‘Oh, where am IT at last he groaned— A passing stranger softly moaned, ‘Chicago I’” The reading of these verses produced great merriment in the senate. Mr. Vest insinuated gently that the poet was Dr. Depew. For eighteen months he (Vest) had been engaged in the humble task of attempting to discover why the meat products of the great states of the west were so depressed that the cattle raiser did not receive pay for his corn, his grass, his oats—to say nothing of his time and attention. If his constituents could go to Ghicego in the great stock yards amid the bellowing of cattle and granting of hogs, they would find what had become of their cattie and how their profits were lost to them Or, if they went into the wheat pit at Chicago, they would there find, amid tile bellowing of bears and roaring of bnlls (presided over by ‘ OM Hater*) what had become of their .wheat mops year after year. In Chicago could see all the emergen* future and on American in-I ob nniTWMl He would find there a restless and dan Serous foreign population. For himself he did not object that foreigners should Ii* that phenomenal city of the great W Jbt. But as senator he could not give his vote for a bill in any city of the United lieved as a business man that it came too soon after the great Paris exposition. In his honest judgment the people outside ef the cities engaged in the contest did not care anything about the exposition. Had the time come when in this country the people had to be amused with shows, in their condition of great pecuniary distress, of unjust laws a&d outrages perpetrated upon them? Mr. Gorman offered an amendment to strike out the provision for the naval review and insert an appropriation of $500 OOO for a memorial building at Washington as a repository of the antiquities of the western hemisphere; rejected Mr Calion said Chicago would make the fair a grand success and would manifest her appreciation of the great honor conferred upon her. When the name of Chicago was mention the senator from Missouri (Vest) seemed to be seized with a kind of hydrophobia. Hs (Collum) did not know what harm Chicago had ever done the senator. The senator had said his people were in doubt as to whether they would go to Chicago or hades, and tnia raised a question as to which place the gentleman represented. But the people of Missouri would be at the exposition by the tens of thousands whether the senator liked it or not. Mr. Blair suggested the City of hades was a democratic city. Blair was opposed to the proposition of holding a naval review as fostering a spirit of war. That accursed institution—a badge of savagry—infernal war, should be abolished. He offered an amendment empowering the president to hold an exhibition of public schools and review public school children in Chicago; also, an amendment for the erection of a statue in memory of Queen Isabella, of Spain; both rejected. Mr. Hoar moved to amend by striking out the provision for a Columbus statue. Mr. Plumb argued against the naval review and said the purpose back of this amendment was that New York should have something to break its fall—something that might minimize the fair at thicago. A naval review is essentially a monarchial idea. The United States ought to show the difference between monarchy based on arms and a republic based on the legitimate pursuits of peace. After further discussion Hoar’s amendment striking out a Columbus statue was agreed to and the remainder of the amendment (for a naval review) adopted; >eas 28. nays 27. Mr Blair moved to add to the first section the provision that no intoxicating liquors, wines or beer, shall be sold, to be used as beverage within the limits of the exposition ground* Mr Butler thought that matter might be left to the people of Caic ago, and his motion to lay the amendment on the table was agreed to—31 to 15 The negative vote were Allison, Blackburn, Blair, Chandler, Dawes, Dixon, Dolph, George, Hampton, Hoar, Mitchell, Moody, Platt, Plumb and Sanders. The committee of the whole then arose and reported the bill to the senate. The vote on the naval review amendment resulted, yeas 27, nays 25, so the provision remains in the bill. The bill then passed —43 to 14. the negatives being Borbour, Berry, Blackburn, Cockrell, Coke, George, Hampton, Morgan, Pugh, Reagan, Vance, Vest and Walthall.

Webber’s ab Ex-Actine Mayor of Bloomington On# of lh* Principals Chicago, April 21.—The climax of the Green-B&rker elopement, which created some excitement at Bloomington several months ago, was reached here to-day. Lester Green was at one time acting mayor of Bloomington. He had a family. Mrs. Barker was the wife of a well to do engineer who gave her a liberal allowance of money, out of which she managed to save in the course of several years about $1,100. She and Green be came mutually infatuated and, taking the money, fled together. They went to Whiteom, Washington, where they invested in real estate and made some more money. Two weeks ago they returned to Chicago with about $1,200, and according to a story in a local paper this evening, Green took all the money Saturday and left the woman here alone. A TOUNG MAN’S FALL.

It was a great game, to say the least, and the Ottumwa may well feel proud of their great team. The Burlingtons play here again to-morow and will no doubt try and regain her lost laurels, while our boys will try just as hard to repeat today's dose.

Commenting on t he above the Herald says: “Mr. Brush, on account of being so slow, must ex pect to spend some money if Indianap oils is admitted. In the first place he mi ast negotiate for the purchase of the Galesburg franchise, and if the price, is very high the other five cities of the league would, no doubt, assist Mr. Br ush, each appropriating $100 for the purchase.

It is understood that the league will favor a change if the Indianapolis people will do the fair thing by Galesburg. It must be made satisfactory to the Illinois town in every respect.

Pat Bell Moth the R»] teflon of tko Moas are la the CoBmoai London, April 21.—In the commons to-day Parnell moved that the Irish land purchase bill be rejected by the house. Speaking in support of his motion, he said that the measure justified the claim the nationalists made nine years ago. He welcomed Mr. Balfour as the latest recruit to the ranks of the land reformers While accepting the government recognition of the principle of land for the people, Parnell declared that he coulc not admit that the bill was a satisfactory solution of the land question The ini tial question was how far the British taxpayer would go in lending credit to Irish landlords. The experience gainer by the discustion of Gladstone’s landbil in 1886 showed that the taxpayer woulc not go for enough to finally settle the land difficulty. The present bill was meant simply to enable one-ninth of the owners of land in Ireland—these being larger absentee landlords—to sell out at exorbitant prices, leaving the poorer resident brethren in the lurch. a Interesting Program Carried Out —Instructive Addresses aud Papers —Au Official Suicides-Other Iowa News and Gossip. general foreign new*. in ttae Bils- Lon- sea.

In an opinion rendered to-day by Justice Blatchford, affirming the judgment of the circuit court for the northern district of Illinois in the case of the Commercial Manufacturing company, appellant, vs the Fairbank Canning company, the United 8tatee supreme court holds that the patents granted by the United States to Hippolyte Mega for the invention of the process of manufacturing oleomargarine expired with the expiration of his Austrian and Bavarian patents. The last reissue of patents, it holds, was invalid, and that consequently those of the Fairbank company are not infringements. APPROVED BY THE PRESIDENT.

Keosauqua, lo., April 21.—The convention of the Y. M. C. A. of the Bur-ington district was called to order by the chairman, O. R. Patrick, of Parsons’ college, Fairfield, at 7.30 p. rn., April 18, in tha Congregational church in this city. Ar. John M. Lyon of Parsons’ college being introduced conducted a half -hour song service. Rev. C. V. Cowan of the Methodist church read the scripture lesson and Rev. T. C. Walker lead in prayer. Mr Patrick then introduced Rev. J. F. Ma-gill, of Fail field, who delivered a masterly address on ‘‘The Bible.” He said: The bible is a wonderful book if it is true. And if it is not true, it is more wonderful still. If it is not true, how can it be accounted for. It is very annoying to infidels even if they do claim not to believe it. The new and old testaments are very closely related, so much so that we can not understand the one without having a thorough knowledge of the other. The old testament illustrates the redemption of Jesus Christ. When we are told that Christ paid the ransom, we can scarcely understand what that means, unless we study the lives and manners of the people in the old testament. # * * No other religion has such a book. It is not for a select few. It does not shoot clean over cur heads. It i9 made by the same God that made the people, and it is made for them especially. * * * Magnificent geniuses, splendid writers, eloquent orators, all bow down to their work as a pupil, as a child to a master father. * We find the epistle to the Hebrews the key to the old and new testaments The bible is the most vividly written history ever written. It was written by different men, at different times, in different languages, and in different parts of the world. ~ And it is all written so that the one part leads into the next part. To a person who did not know better, it would seem that the last verse of Malachi and the first verse of Matthew were written near the same time, but they were written centuries apart. A peculiarity of the Bible is that it is a fabric that God has built up. The religion is well adapted to humanity in that it not only makes man to know God but it makes him to know himself. I elevates him in the only true way, in the only way given, whereby he can be freed from his bondage of sin. After a few announcements by the chairman and by state secretary, Mr. Magee, the convention adjourned, the benediction being pronounced by Dr. Magill. Saturday morning, promptly at 9 a. m the convention was opened with a praise service ltd by W. M. Parsons, tho assisting slate secretary. At the close of this service, Mr. Patrick was duly chosen chairman of the co^v-niion and ac en-ollment committee wa5: appointed, and after the introduction there were found be present: A. L Margao, Howard lolland, Harry Woodard and Rev. Norton of the Methodist church; J. P. Jenkins, Baptist minister, and Mr Thero, from Farmington; Mr. Gge. general secretary, of Muscatine; W. A.

Cowan of the Methodist church, and Mr. Craig, of Keosauq is; Mr J. S Watson, general secretary, d L Vest, J. L Witter and W. H. Lilburn of Ot-tuma; Elder McCrary, of Pleasant Hill; $ev. J. T. Magil, of the Presbyterian church, O. R. Patrick, John M. Lyon, Mr. R. Sawyers and G. V. Dicxey, of Parsons’ college, and J. W. Burnett, officer of the state executive committee, from Fairfield; H. H. Fellows and J. W. Clark, of the owa Wesleyan University, Mt. Pleasant; Rev. J. W. Potter, Mr Brown, W. S. Lyon, Alvin Steinmetz, Henry Chamberlain, E. A. Barrett, general secretary and E M. Triplet, assistant secretary from Burlington. At 9:30 the reports of the association were made. Mr. Watson, of Ottumwa, said they had secured subscriptions for a new building to the amount of $16,000 They have purchased a very desirable lot 80x64 feet and are going on with their preparations for putting up their build-ng. Mr. Parsons reported for the state university, they had secured subscriptions for $20,000 for their new building and that their membership was one hundred. Mr. Fellows, of the Iowa Wesleyan University, of Mt. Pleasant, said their membership consisted of about sixty members; that the association had petitioned for rooms in the new chapel and that they were doing extensive evangelistic work in the surrounding towns and villages. Mr Dickey, of Parsons, reported a membership of sixty; that $75 for missionary and *40 for state work had been raised, and that there had been fifty conversions, the result of the evangelistic work in the country near Fairfield. Mr. Recce reported for the Ft. Madison and Mr. Ego for the Mucatine assoria tion. There were other reports from places where they have no organizations of the Y. M. C. A. Mr. Ege’s paper on “Development of District Work” was very good and con tamed many suggestions that could be carried out to a very good advantage He emphasized the benefit that is derived from these district conventions. This topic was very generally discussed and many practical ideas were suggested in regard to raising money. On “Per sonal Purity” Mr. Watson had a paper that was very good, which was followed by remarks regarding evil thinking, bad literature, Sunday newspapers, etc. Mr Reece’s song was enjoyed very much The last topic of the afternoon, “The Bible Training class.” presented by Mr. Barrett, was especially discussed as to the feasibility of having these classes in college end the difficulties attending the maintenance of these classes. The paper on “Work Among Boys” was especially interesting. He said what to do with the boys was sn unsolved problem. They were harder to deal with than young men, for the latter are more easily entertained, but the former must have something new presented to them every time and unless this is done, they become dissatisfied and seek entertain meat elsewhere After a lively and practical discussion of this subject, the convention adjourned for dinner. At Sp. bl Mr. Parsons conducted bible reading, taking for the scripture lemon, part of the 119 Lh psalm, which was very interesting and instructive. This was followed bv a paper on “Committee Work,” by W. A Magee, and in this paper he remarked how Canst had sent out a committee of two to heal the sick and cast out devils, so we find that committee work is one of the means of doing work for Christ. 8. L- Vest a paper on ‘'Questions of Finance * brought out very emphatically the ever present need of money in all the work and suggested means praise Eeivice during which a double male quartette selected from the dele gates rendered two very beautiful and appropriate selections, and Mr. Miller sang‘ Come Unto Me” nicely. At the close of this service Mr. Patrick introduced Mr. Sawyer, of Parsons’ col-ege, who read a paper on “Y. M. C. A. in the College.” His paper was very good and he treated the subject so thoroughly that there was little discussion regarding it Following him came Mr. Clark, of I. W. U., with a paper on “Closing and Opening of the College Year.” In this paper Mr. Clark made many practical suggestions in regard tr the reception of new students ss well as the duties of the old ones. As the evening had been assigned to college work, Mr. Parsons being called up, explained very dearly the work that had been done in the past and is being done to day in the college Y. M. C. A’s of the and and how the volunteer missionary movement has grown almost entirely out of the college Y. M. C A. At 9 a. rn., Sunday morning, Mr. J. W.
