THE The Legislative Appropriation Bill— The World’s Fair Bill Beady for the President’s Signature — General Washington News. Washington, April 22.—The committee on ways and means reported the bill providing for the classification of worsted cloths as woolens; referred to the committee of the whole. Hr. Candler, of Massachusetts, moved that the house concur in the senate amendment to the world’s fair bill. This being agreed to the bill is finally passed and will be sent to the president for his action. The house then went into committee of the whole (with Payson, of Illinois, in the chair) on the legislative appropriation bill. Mr. Butterwort^ in a brief explanation of the bill, said in some of the bureaus of the departments there was substantially a civil pension list. It consisted of a number of old persons who had faithfully served the government in the past but who were no longer able to perform their duties. They were carried on the rolls, but were of no service to the government. The committee on appropria-tons had allowed an increase in the clerical force of the civil service commission substantially as requested by the commission. Mr. Dockery criticised the increase The bill provided for the appointment of one hundred and forty-one new officers at a cost of 1171, HOO. Referring to the civil pension pension list he said in the departments there were employed three hundred and ninety-seven persons who wero wholly or partially inefficient, but who drew salaries amounting to $450,000 He believed there should be new blood in the departments. Fifteen hundred clerks could be discharged at a saving of $1,500,000 a year. Mr. Allen, of Mississippi, quoted from a speech delivered by Connon and used as a campaign document, declaring the republican party devoted to the country and won Id, if it came into power, administer the government with greater economy and greatly reduce expenditures. He then quoted from the civil service plank of the republican party and president Earrison’s letter of acceptance. But the republican party had gone back on its promise and he wanted to call the attention of the country to the civil service pretensions of the administration. Mr. Allen recalled a story as showing a republican opinion of the administration. It was to the effect that meeting a republican and asking him what he thought of it he received the following reply: "Wwnny runs the Sunday school, Levi runs the bar, Baby runs the White House, And, damn it, here we are.” Mr. Bland addressed himself to the discussion of the monetary question, He had never regarded this question as a party one, but from the fact that the republicans wero holding caucus after caucus it would seem they were going to make it one. Let the bill be brought in as any other business bill might be brought in. not under the gag-law of the caucus. He thou proceeded to speak in favor of unlimited coinage of silver and characterized the Windom bill as a demonetizing bill. If the bill was not brought before the house, let the responsibility rest where it belonged, on Secretary Tracy, who assumed to frame the bill aud to tell the country that unless the bill passed there should be no silver legislation. Mr. Kerr suggested when the democrats controlled the house in the fiftieth congress it had not passed an unlimited coin bill. Mr. Cannon replied to Dockery’s criticism. In view of the record of the last administration and the last congress it seemed the gentleman had swallowed a camel then and was now straining at a gnat. In the fiftieth congress there were created 985 offices with an aggeegate expenditure of $11,641,000. The increase of salaries made by the pending bill was only $5,000. The increase of salaries made in the fiftieth congress was $1,200,-OOO Mr. Williams, of Illinois, criticised the republicans in the house for not bringing in a bill for the settlement of the silver question and thus relieving the oppressed people of the country. Mr. Grosvenor said the anxiety manifested on the democratic side in regard to the popularity and success of the administration was the best sign that the republican side ought to be satisfied with the administration. Speaking of the civil service system, he said he could not believe the law and its administration was approved by one-fifth of the members of either house of congress. He was told there were on the eligible list enough young men and women to fill places for twenty-five years to com). Yet the young men and women of his district were cajolled and urged to spend time and money in being examined, when the men who issued the invitations knew the chances were not one in a thousand that they would get a position. Mr. Lodge defended the civil service law and resented its being characterized as a humbug and a fraud. Without finishing the bill the committee rose and the house adjourned. zoological bill was agreed to and the bill now goes to the president The District of Columbia appropriation bill was passed, and after an executive session the senate adjourned. Capital Clatter. The house committee on judiciary has ordered a favorable report without amendment upon the senate bill to prohibit trusts. The president to-day sent to the senate the nomination of John C. Fremont, of New York, to be major general of the United States army on the retired list. The house committee on commerce today considered the request of the commercial travelers that combined railroad systems be authorized to issue mileage tickets. The matter was referred to a sub-committee for further consideration. £. A. Williams, surveyor general of North Dakota. Postmasters, Iowa, D. M. Rawland, Marengs. SIOUX ClinElMD.

Fifty Rioting Strikers Cfeicsgo. Arrested at Chicago, April 22.—A body of striking carpenters caused a riot in the southwestern part of the city this forenoon, and as a result about fifty of them are locked up and a police sergeant is under the physician’s care, seriously hurt. Some non-union carpenters were put to work on Wallace street, near Fifty-third, this morning. The strikers tried to induce them to quit work and when argumenta failed the riot followed. Police Sergeant Begley interfered, when he was set upon and beaten by the strikers. An alarm was sent to the nearest police station and a detachment of police was sent out and succeeded in arresting about fifty of the rioters. The rest escaped but the police are hunting for them. The non-union men in the meantime dropped their tools and fled. THE STRIKE OF MAY FIRST. Chicago, April 22.—Samuel Gompers, president of the confederation of labor, to-night issues an address to “wage workers and sympathizers with the progress of America.” He says: “In accordance with a resolution of the Boston convention of the American Federation of Labor to select    the trade to make a demand for    the enforcement    of the eight hour work day May first, the executive    council have    de cided that the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Painters of America shall name the demand It appears that the wealth, power and influence of the emploving and corporate classes of the country are to be concentrated to defeat the movement,    which seeks    not only to improve the condition of the employed, but which will find employment, and consequently save from poverty, degradation, and dispair hundreds of thousands of our idle fellow men and women. In view of this situation it will bo necessary for the wage-workers and their friends of America to rally with greater unanimity of purpose than ever before; to concentrate all their efforts to counteract and over come the action of our enemies. They must voluntarily contribute their mites to place at the disposal of the American Federation of Labor a sum of money sufficient to meet all contingencies.” This evening Gompers addressed a mass meeting in Chicago. He denounced as lepers the nen-unioni3ts who were now taking the places of the striking carpenters of Chicago. SETTLED AT INDIANAPOLIS. Indianapolis, April 22.—A committee from the striking carpenter’s and contractor’s association met with Mayor Sullivan this afternoon and after a five hour conference reached an agreement which settles the eight-hour strike. The contractors agree to pay compatent carpenters and joiners thirty cents an hour and concede eight hours a day. About five hundred men will resume work tomorrow. THE CARPENTERS FIRM IN PORTLAND. Portland, Ore., April 22.—The striking carpenters remain firm in their determination to m»ke the contractors yield to their demand for eight hours’ work. The bricklayers and plasterers are also out and building in this city is almost at a standstill. THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD MEN TAKE A HAND Pittsburg, April 22.—The Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen have taken up the case of the switchmen. Various meetings have been held throughout the city, but the most important one was held by the Brotherhood of Trainmen, which takes in the brakemen, firemen, etc. They not only resolved to cling to the switchmen in their demands, but also presented grievances of their own to be adjusted.__ A FATHKK’S FEattlTUL FIND. Special to The Hawk-Kte. Dis Moines, April 22.—The republican state central committee has been in session all the afternoon. Every district was represented either by person or by proxy. There was considerable rivalry over the location of the next convention. Representatives of Cedar Rapids, Sioux City and Des Moines made urgent appeals for the convention and when the balloting commenced it was hard to tell who would get the prize. The offers from ail were about alike. First ballot: Cedar Rapids 4, Sioux City 4, Des Moines 4, Dubuque I. Second ballot: Cedar Rapids 3, Sioux City 4, Des Moines 4. Third ballot: Cedar Rapids 3, Sioux City 5, Des Moines 3. Fourth ballot: Cedar Rapids 5, Sioux City 4. Des Moines 2. Fifth ballot: Cedar Rapids 4, Sioux City 6, Des Moines I. But for the location on the extreme western border every one would be satisfied with the result of the last ballot, as Sioux City will take good care of the convention. Des Moines does not feel very sore, believing after a year’s experience of putting the convention on wheels it will be glad to get back. The representation was fixed at one for each county and one for each two hundred, and a fraction over a hundred votes were cast for governor last fall. This gives Des Moines county eleven. The total number is nine hundred and sixty nine. The date of convening was fixed for June 25 Considerable other important business is to be transacted. Among other things will be the recommendation of an entire new system of thorough, close organiza ti on of the party. The members all feel confident of victory and are encouraged over the prospect._ THS WORK OF A WRECKER A PuMBgtr Train Ditch** at Dec Moines by a I anted Switch. Special to THS Hawk-By*. Des Moines, April 22.—Early this morning as passenger train No. 2 was leaving the city and reached East Thirteenth street, an accident happened which injured a number of people. It was caused by some person pulling the switch after the engine and one car had passed over. Two cars were derailed and one turned over in the ditch. There were eight or ten passengers in this coach and all of them were more or less shaken up and some considerably injured. A. Trimner, of Aneta, received cuts and bruises around the head. Mrs. E. M. Post, of Omaha, (on her way to Chicago) bruises on the shoulder and limbs. Mrs. Carrie Schaaf, from Omaha, on her road home to Michigan, severely bruised and cut. It is believed that the throwing of the switch was done by some person bent upon wrecking the train. The target of the switch was all right. It seems the pin of the switch was missing and an iron bar was attached to the rail, by means of which a man lying at the side of the track could succeed in pulling the switch even after the engine and one car had passed over. The man was not found but the iron bar was. A delay of several hours was the result. John elevens, the engineer, says it was undoubtedly foul play and believes he saw the man at the side of the track, but thought him drunk and asleep. But for the support of the telegraph pole more of the coaches would have been ditched. several cartridges and proceeded to load the pistol when in some unaccountable manner it suddenly exploded, the hen [ passing through his left shoulder.

Washington, April 22.—Senator Cockrell offered a resolution which was agreed to, directing the superintendent of census to communicate to the senate the forms of Hiles and regulations adopted by him for obtaining statistics as to farm mortgages. Mr. Plumb's resolution heretofore offered for an increase of the treasury purchase and coinage of silver was presented aud Eustis moved as an addition to it the further resolution that free coinage of silver is essential to a sound financial policy and was demanded by all great interests of the country and that therefore all the laws limiting the coinage of silver ought be repealed. Plumb consented to let the resolution lie over for the present so ai to give Mitchell an opportunity to address the senate. Mr. Mitchell addressed the senate in favor of thy constitutional amendment proposed by him for the election of senators by popular vote. Already fifteen changes were made in the constitution and who could say any of them were not well advised. All these amendments led up logically to the pending proposition. The present system of electing senators he declared unrepublican and vicious._____ It was in the purpose of the declaration I sa Pond’s Ex that for some reason it was unsafe to 1fiSSJKS commit tile election of senators to a vote of the people, and a reflection on their honesty or capacity, or bottu of the voting classes. Among either things Mitchell declared the secret executive sessions was no longer in harmony with It was a relic of Birimi Hook Discovers His Body la the Morgue. San Francisco, April 22.—Samuel G.

His father had just reported for duty, and strolled into the place to view the unidentified remains, never for a moment imagining that he would gaze on the mangled corpse of his own child. The scene which followed was heartrending. The strong parent went into hysterics and had to be led from the morgue. The mother of the lad on being informed of the sad event was so prostrated that she is not expected to recover from the shock. _ The McCall* Court-Martial. New York, April 22 —The court-martial of Commander McCalla of the Enterprise, U. S. A , began to-day at the Brooklyn navy yard. The charges preferred are those reported by the recent court of inquiry, and included severe and cruel treatment and the violations of the articles of government of the navy.

Chicago, April 22.—The sensational confession” of Frank Woodruff which was so generally published last autumn, and which among other things stated that Alexander Sullivan, ex-president of the Irish National League, in Woodruff s Sresence, handed a sum on money to lartin Burke, one of Cronin’s murderers, has been entirely discredited by the authorities here. State’s Attorney Long-enecker, in dismissing the charge of murder against Woodruff, thus referred to this sensational confession: “The state has no evidence to implicate the defendant in the Cronin murder except the statement of confession of Woodruff himself. We have, after a full investigation, come to the conclusion that the confession was wholly fabricated by the prisoner and that he had no con nection whatever with the Cronin murder. The state will, therefore, not prosecute Woodruff upon this indict ment.” To an Associated Press representative to-day States Attorney Longnecker said: I am satisfied Woodruff s confession was simply a lie from beginning to end. I will admit, however, that at the begin ning we credited it so much that it great ly misled and hampered us in working out the case. The fact is, as we have now ascer tained, Woodruff simply manufactured this whole story in hope that his professed knowledge of the greater crime might secure him immunity for the lesser offense of horse stealing. I am satisfied now that he knew nothing about and had nothing to do with the Cronin mur der in any connection. His story was simply the cunning subterfuge of an inveterate liar and amateur horse thief We are going to send him to the penitentiary for horse stealing if we can. Woodruff’s confession, widely circulated at that time, did great injustice to Alexander Sullivan and others whose names were freely used. OKlabcnsa’a Anniversary. Kansas City, April 22.—A year ago to-day Oklahoma became a part of the public domain. The anniversary event was fittingly celebrated throughout the country. In every city public meetings were held to give expression to the feelings of the settlers. At Oklahoma City instead of rejoicing was mourning over the death of Captain Couch. His funeral occurred at noon and it brought together a large concourse of people. To-day had been decided upon by the 'Cherokee Boogers” as a fitting time to move upon the Cherokee Strip. No raid occurred, however, the settlers hav ing determined to obey President Harrison’s order to keep off the Indian lands [ until they were formal ly opened to set tlement by congress. Test of n Girl’s Fitness for Mamas*. The betrothed wife of an estimable young man was recently visiting his mother. The members of both families were delighted. The chap’s mother was dazzled by the beauty, the breeding and elegance of her prospective daughter-in-law. Strange to say, however, on the day after the young girl had begun her visit the mother called her son to her and spoke gravely to him about his promised bride. “Harry,” said she, “Alice invited me into her room to day, and oh, my son, she doesn’t dress like a lady at all. I’m afraid, Harry, I really am.” Harry smothered his indignation and begged his mother to explaid herself. “Well, you see,” said the latter, “instead of nice, white linen, all her underwear is black silk. Every item is of that material, and when I spoke of it she showed me t runks full of clothes in every tint of silk imaginable, and no linen at all. This was bad enough, Harry; but her genera had jeweled clasps on them. Oh, my son, you never knew of a girl of real refinement to get herself up in that style. I feel certain that something that we do not know about in Alice’s disposition will come out sooner or later.” In a great rage at his mother’s imputation Harry left the house When he returned he did not recur to the subject, and his mother refrained from broaching it again, though her whole manner indicated her fears concerning her son’s fiancee. A week later, however, the girl eloped with an adventurer. I should always” says Harry’s mother, “doubt a youn^ lady who could not take pride in fine linen, and am positive that no modest girl ever wore a jeweled garter. Such a thing could not be the gift of her father or brother, and she would certainly not buy it herself.” Matilda Heron’s Audience A rattier curious anecdote is told about that famous but erratic genius, Matilda Heron. Here it is: She was booked to appear in St. Louis at the then famous opera house that stood where the Grand Opera house now is. On Monday night a severe snow storm came up All traffic was stopped, and Miss Heron’s carriage was upset on the way to the play-house, the snow being several feet deep. The actress, hearing that at eight o’clock there was no one in the house, stepped in the middle of her dressing, donned a wrapper, and went up to satisfy herself. She glanced at the cold, desolate seats, and for the first time in her life realized that she could not draw against a Missouri blizzard. But stay I—what was that dark object in the center of the parquet? Bent on investigation, she went out in front and discovered that the lonely object was a man. “Have you a home?” asked she, abruptly. “Yes,” he answered. “A wife and family ?” “Yes” “Then why in the name of all that is reasonable didn’t you stay at home such a night as this?” He gazed at the actress a moment and replied: “Miss Heron, I am the leader of the orchestra.” * W.
