Henderson, of Iowa, and McKinley, of |until toe second day succeeding the elec tions and the judge may exercise his supervisor alleging there is danger that unless the election is guarded it will not be fair and free, it shall be the duty of the judge of the United States district court to open court for the purpose of, transacting all business pertaining to ] MILLI0H8 OF DOLLARS WORTH OF DAUSE registrat on or election matters as may, by any United States law, there be! transacted. The court shall be always | open for the transaction of such business BODE TO FERTILE PLABTAT10M8. Ohio, Ably Argue in Its Defense — The Silver Bill-General Washington News, Washington, April 24. —The house after the transaction of some unimportant business went into committee of the whole (Payson, of Illinois, in the chair) on the legislative appropriation bill. When the clause appropriating salaries for the civil service commission was reached Cummings, of New York, made the point of order that it was not properly in the bill as the commission was neither legislative, executive, nor judicial. After some debate the point of order was overruled. A motion by Dorsey, of Nebraska, to reduce the number of commissioners from three to one, was overruled, ob was also one by Perkins, of Kansas, exempting the ex-soldiers from provisions of the civil service law. Mr. Houk, of Tennessee moved to strike out the entire clause. He desired the government to run on business prin cl pies ; desired to see merit recognized, but he did not believe in this fifth wheel to the wagon. Furthermore the com mission was under indictment and no appropriation should bo made until the committee charged with the investigation hade a report. Mr. More, of New Hampshire, announced nimself a civil service reformer without qualification. Mr. Biggs, of California, denounced the civil service law. It was, he said, conceived in sin and brov.jht forth in iniquity. Pendleton was its father. George William Curtis its granny, and Dorman B Eaton its nurse and clout washer. Messrs. Lehlbach of New York, Mc-Comas of Maryland, and Cutcheon of Michigan, opposed Houk’s motion. Mr. Cheapie, of Indiana, opposed the wh^ lo theory of civil service reform. Mr Grosvenor, of Ohio, was opposed lo the construction and operation of the present law, while he favored reform Mr. Hopkins, of Illinois, said Houk was out of joint with the sentiment of his party as expressed in the platform Mr. Dunnell, of Minnesota, said under the civil service law intelligent men did not vote for the service. It was the dude* that were going in under the present system. Mr. Hill, of Illinois, characterized the motion a* anti! >rt to do bv indirection what neither great political party had a desire or c Mirage to do openly. QgGreenh&lge. of Massachusetts, made a vigorous speech in favor of civil service reform Mr Cfieman, of Louisiana, opposed it. Mr. Henderson, of Iowa, said civil service reform had come to stay and the oolitic a1 party that deserted it would not stay in power and ought not. It is not true that this adminstration has not enforced the law. President Harrison is enforcing it and thats what the matter is with the boys. Mr. McKinley, of Ohio, earnestly opposed the motion to strike out. If the republican party was pledged to one single thing more than another it was a maintenance of the civil service laws. It was not only according to the tenets of the republican party but according to the best sentiment o' the republican party throughout the Uaited States. It wag sustained by the best sentiment of the whole country, republicans and dem cerat* alike The republican party must take no backward atop. Mr. Butterworth endorsed every word bis colleague had said. Nothing smacked of monarchial forms so much as the spoils system. The motion to strike out was lost—Cl io 120—and pending further action the committee rose and the house ad journed. _ THE SSN ATM* power in open court or in the chambers The chief supervisors may verify the | I registration lists and in any city of fifty I thousand inhabitants or upwards may cause a house to house canvass; but no) I inquiries shall be made as to the political opinions of any person. Every person charged with any duty with regard! to any election of a member of congress who shall commit any fraud thereon A Desolate Scene at Bayou Sara, La. —Rescuing the Unfortunate Sufferers—Telegrams from Various Points on the River. New Orleans, April 24 —United States Engineer Douglass telegraphed that Point Pleasant levee, in Tensas Parish, gave way this morning. The shall be liable to a fine of not exceeding I water from it, will, no doub, overflow a •5,000 or to imprisonment not exceeding | grester pir, o( the parish- five years, or both. The same penalty is provided for bribery or attempted bribery of voters._ GENERAL. WASHINGTON NEWS Hoar Reports His Bill to A mead in* Xlest!on Laws. Washington, April 24 —In the senate to day the house bill to transfer the revenue cutter service to the navy department, was again taken up and the amendments reported from the com mitten en naval affairs agreed to. Mr. Hoar then reported from the committee on privileges and elections, the bill to amend and suppliment the election laws and to provide for more tfflci out enforcement of the same. Mr. Pugh said every democratic member cf the committee opposed a favorable report of this bill which, he said, appoints republican supervisors to oversee state officers, thereby insulting and degrading these state officers. It is subversive of the fundamental principles of local self government. If the bill becomes a law. its execution will insure the shedding of blood and the destruction of the peace and good order of the country. Mr. Hoar replied that the bill is in substance a modification aud perfection of the system which has been a law in the United States for many years and which has secured in the main honest elections and honest counts in the city of New York, where, before it, sixty thousand fraudulent naturalization papers had gone out from judges within three days before the election. The bill is but an assertion of the constitutional Dower which expressly asserted that the United States may regulate the manner of elect ing the members of its own congress or alter the regulations in a state. The consideration of the revenue cut tar bill was resumed and Sherman op posed it, The land forfeiture bill was then taken up as unfinished business, and the amendments reported from the commit tee on public lands were agreed to. Mr. Berry moved to amend the first section of the bill by striking out the word "now” and inserting the words “within the time specified in the act of congress making the grants.” The effect of the amendment, he said, would be not only to forfeit portions of land opposite to lines not now constructed but would forfeit all lands granted the railroad companies where the lines were not completed with in the time fixed in the act and in subse quant extension of it. After some debate the amendment was rejected, the republicans voting in the negative. Some other amendments were consid ered and laid on the table and the senate then adjourned FED EBEL ELECTION BILL. Tile Mala Prvvuioii af s—aisr Boar’s Proposed M smears. Washington, April 24 —The federal election bill reported by Senator Hoar to day provides that chief supervisors of elections shall be charged in their reapec tive judicial districts with the super?! aion of congressional elections, with the enforcement of the national election laws, and with the prevention of fraud and irregularities in naturalisation Whenever in any city having twenty thousand inhabitants or upwards or in any congressional district, one hundred voten shall petition the ohlef A Subslit st® Introduced for tbs J on* a Silver Bill.

Boston, April 24 —A special to the Journal from Cheyenne, Wyoming, says a conference has been called to consider the demands of the Union Pacific train men f or an increase of pay and nearly all the officials are now at Cheyenne. The train men are determined, and if some solution is not reached to-day, a strike will ensue, taking in the Denver, Texas and Ft. Worth, the Oregon Short Lino, the Kansas Pacific and the Union Pacific railroads. MANY LABORERS WILL STRIKE. Chicago, April 24 —Joseph Gruenhut, who has long held a prominent place among the socialistic labor agitators of this city, and who is now a tenement house inspector and statistician of the health department, has compiled a table of figures of the number of laboring people in this city who will either strike for eight hours on the first of May or be made idle by strikes in collateral industries on which they depend. According to this table the number of wage workers, male and female, who will not be at work at that time reaches the surprising aggregate of 228 OOO. This calculation covers only the city as it was previous to last year’s annexation of the towns of Hyde Park, Lake View, Cicero, Lake and Jtfferson. The importance of this statement will be apparent when it is stated that the town of Lake alone contains 35 OOO people directly affected by the strike now contemplated. Of this great aggregate, 199,000 are males and 24 OOO females. The number of firms involved is 11,500. EVERYBODY WILL STRIKE Chicago, April 24—It was originally tbe intention of the American Federation of Labor that the carpenters only should at present make a demand for the eight hour day, but developments to-day and yesterday show that other trades are not likely to conform to the instructions of President Gompers. Nearly every prominent trade of the city has, through its union, declared its intention to also demand the eight hours day on May 1st. Gompers desired the other trades to hold cif and contribute financially to the carpenters’ association un til the latter had gained their point then the other trades to come in turn by turn. But President Gowper’s circler letter has been entirely disregarded and in addition to the carpenters, the stock yards and packing house employes, gas filters, iron moulders, stair builders, mill carpenters, and harness makers have already declared their intention to fight and their example is likely to be followed by the tailors, shoe makers, plasters lathers, cornice makers and other trades. MINERS STRIKE AT SCOTTDALE. Scottdale, Pa, April 24 —Eight hundred miners in the Smithton district atiuck to-day for the Columbus scale and nearly one thousand coke ovens are closed down ILLINOIS MINERS MEET. St Louis Ap ii 24 —A convention of delegates representing the coal miners of southern Illinois is in session at Bust St Louis under the auspices of the United Miners’ Workers’ association rf Ameri ca. A new scale of prices foi day workers in tbe southern Illinois mines has been adopted, it being an advance cf twenty-five per cent over tbe present wages. A scale for piece workers of like character will be agreed to. Arrangements are also to be made for the establishment of an eight hour day sys tem. There is no talk of a strike, the dele gates being of the opinion that the oper ators will grant their demands without hesitation. The report of the wage scale com mittee was adopted this morning declaring the miners of southern Illinois, will stand by the scale made by the Colum-bua convention. The national executive fury, were scores of people, both white I    *tnt0 and black; tome with babies in arms, while others had doss secured by cords. Many of them had nothing else in the world except the clothes they wore on their backs. When the Dacotah discovered a scene like this the stage was swung out and the stricken ones taken aboard. Equally as sad a scene was that of poor, dumb cattle standing in the water, actually starving HEAVY RAINS FALLING. Greenville, Miss , April 24.—The heaviest rain this season fell in the last forty eight hours through the valley. For the past thirty hours the rain fall here is four and one half inches, and still raining IS SKANE? KH, SHAH COULSON SO ADJUDGED FOE THE FOURTH TIKE. Captain John A. Grant, superintendent cf the Texas and Pacific railroad, speaking of the Morganza crevass, says: “This is one of the worst calamities that could befall the residents of this state and yet it could have been averted if the people had only made an effort. They are to blame for it. Now, they are creating a great hubbub about sending relief up there and all that sort of thing, while before the disaster occurred they eeemed utterly unaware of the impending danger. If need be, they should have raised $500,000 to hold that levee and it could have been done, too, and would have been well invested, as there is $20,OGO,-OOO worth of property that will now be irretrievably damaged, which a little display of energy would certainly have averted ” THE SITUATION AT NEW ORLEANS. New Orleans, April 24 —The break in old Morgan zi is now four hundred feet wide and fifteen feet deep. A cargo of stone has been sent from this city and effort will be made to matrass the ends and thus prevent further destruction The overflow water from the levee, which caused much inconvenience to people in the rear of the seventh and eighth wards in this city, since Sunday last is gradually receediug. It is reported at the Texas and Pacific office that the water is gradually over flowing their tracks between Biton Rogue june lion and Melville. The Louisville, New Orleans and Texas railroad better known as the Mississippi Valley has been the greatest sufferer, so far, by the overflow. Oiher railroads have not been affected to any great; extent. A PICTURE OF DESOLATION. Bayou Sara, La., April 24 —The relief steamer Dacotah reached here yesterday evening. She had made a trip to Point Coupee, and had come back to Bayou Sara. Her arrival was a godsend to the people whose lives were in jeopardy, for she has not only saved a large amount of property, but a great many lives. The entire front of Pointe Coupee is under water and most of the levees have gone. No pen is equal to thp task of picturing toe devastation of the country or the desolation of the peo pie. The small stretches of levee still standing are crowded with men, women and children, side by side, with horses, mules and cows. Hundreds of lives are in danger. In an old gin house five hundred negroes were found huddled together. Their condition was .pitiable. The damage in the fi roded districts is incalculable. A Texas and Pacific boat succeeded yesterday in saving two hun dred people from the back country around Morgansea. Later.—Ruin and desolation meets the aye on every side in the Pointe Coupee Parish. The destruction is complete. Not a plantation is left above water; not a levee unbroken, while hun dreds of families are homeless. Thousands of stock have been drowned, and from meager reports received from the interior it is quite probable that humaii life has been sacrificed to tbe flood. Standing on the deck of the relief steamer Dacotah, last evening, the full extent of the disaster could be seen Grouping together on little knolls between the broken levees through which the water rushed with ungovernable Special to Tex Hawk-Bye.

Gladstone Continues to Dehate the Land Parches* Bill. London, April 24 —Gladstone resumed the debate on the land purchase bill in. the commons this evening. He said he was opposed to the bill under the overwhelming conviction that it was complicated without undertaking to solve the difficulty. He had been encouraged to hope for a solution by Lord Salisbury’s declaring the measure would not impose a burden upon the British taxpayers He was disappointed, however, when Balfour informed the house that the BDBLQIBTOK’S CLUB lWAIENIBS ITS OTTUMWA IIBHTKAIE.

Its general purpose was clear, but he was not certain that be comprehended the details. [Conservative laughter ] He who are among the wealthiest and most influential people of the county, brought her to Carthage for trial as to her sanity, but the jury revised to find a verdict that she was dis tracted. In nine days thereafter she was again brought to Carthage for trial and this time another jury pronounced her insane. She was sent to Jacksonville and remained a few months, and then was discharged as cured 8he returned to La Harpe and ived quietly until some time in 1883 when she was again presented as a fit subject for the asylum. The same tedious process of jury trials was undergone and Mrs Coulson was again taken back to Jacksonville. After another so-ourn of a few months she was sent home, but again in 1885 another jury in the Hancock county court sent her to Jacksonville where she remained univ a few months. Since about the year 1886 Irs. Coulson has resided quietly in La larpe. Within the past few weeks, however, it is said that Mrs. Coulson has evinced signs of insanity, and so on Tuesday her relatives again brought her ‘ o Carthage to be examined in the county court relative to her sanity. The lady made a fine appearance on the witness stand and testified in her own behalf. She said in substance: “I have been ill great deal and suffer much from ague. I have been in Jacksonville asy-urn several times, and if I could only De quiet there maybe I would get sound well. But I am compelled to hear the awful shrieks and screams of the help easly insane women in my ward, and it is enough to drive anybody crazy. Once ’ was beaten with a strap by a female at tend ant. Bul that was nothing to the awful howls and ravings of the women in my ward. I can hear those screams now—can hear them day and night— day and night. The jury went out and soon returned verdict that Mrs. Coulson was not insane. Her relatives concluded, however, to remain another day. Yesterday morning Mrs. Coulson awoke at the hotel about 4 o’clock. She was singing. To the physicians who c tiled to see her she balked incoherently and it was evident that hermiod was unbalancad. Another jury was impaneled yesterday afternoon and the poor woman was again condemned to the Jacksonville mad house She wss taken there the same afternoon Dy a relative Some people do not think the woman is very crazy. A good many other peoplte think that her story of the horrors and cruelties at the asylum bear with I ham some show of credence, and that an investigation would not be out of place. _ AN insane: deed. of the landlord class if when a local government was established in Ireland, they did not take a part in adjusting the aff fir*. Balfour’s bill ought to be confined to the landlords already in possession. It should not encourage tbe land’ords to oecome buyers of land in order to take advantage of the enormous bcoas offered. [Hear, hear ] The provision respecting two years’ arrears also required justifl cation which it would be difficult to find. [Cheers.] Coming to what he called constitutional objections, he urged it was obvious Ireland opposed the measure in view of the fact that five-sixths of the Irish members were deliberately and determinedly opposed. [Cheers.] As the governments was going to make Ireland its debtor, it was important to consider what was the attitude of the persons about to be subjected to that debt. State landlordism implies the use of soldiers against the tenant; the use of every weapon of the state to enforce an unpopular law._ GENERAL FOREIGN NU WB. Special to THS Hawx-Et*. Cedar Rapids, April 24.—The day was raw and chilly, still a good sized crowd went to the ball park to witness the second and last game between the Cedar Rapids and Burlington teams, which, like yesterday’s contest, proved that Cedar Rapids was no match whatever for the boys from Burlington. Donnelly and Murphy were in the points the nome team and Stephen and Tully as Burlington’s battery, the latter doing great work, Stephen allowing the home boys but two safe hits, while Tully nailed every man who attempted to steal a base. In the last inning Cedar Rap;ds scored her only run. Ford hit a hot grounder to Shugert who made a nice stop, but threw the ball over the back fence, thus allowing Ford to make the circuit of the bases. The feature of the game was the battery work of Stephen and Tully. Score pj Innings— Burlington  O 6 3 2 1 0 0 0 x—I? Cedar Rapids 0 0 0 0 u 0 0 0 1—9 Base hits, Burlington 9, Cedar Rapids 2.
