MIHETEEH CONTRABAND CHINAMEN TO BE SHIPPED HOME. Congress Appropriates $150,000 for tile Belie! of tbe Louisiana Flood Sufferers—The Railroad Grant Forfeiture Bill —Notes. Washington, April 25.—Attorney General Miller informed the treasury department, under date of April 19, that there are nineteen Chinamen in the custody of the United States marshal of Washington, who were arrested and tried for coming into the United States in violation of the Chinese exclusion act. Be recommended, in accordance with a suggestion from the secretary of state, that notwithstanding the presumption that the Chinamen entered the United States across the British border, that they be returned to China at government expense, for the reason that the men could not be returned to British territory without payment of a head tax of 150 each, and even then might probably again evade the vigilance of the United States officers and return to this country. Secretary Window has adopted the recommendation, and has instructed the collector of customs at Port Townsend to see that the men are returned to China, in the most economical way, by sailing or other vessel, bound direct for that country without touching at any American port en route. THIE LAKIC BORONS OUTLET. A vanman ti Bi fori ihi grant • Cornin arco Committal in Iti Favor. Washington, April 25 —Captain John Cowdon, the promoter of the scheme to open *n outlet for the flood waters of the Mississippi river through Lake Borgne, from a point ten miles below New Orleans, which he has been urging upon congresa for the past ten years, and others interested with him, were given a hearing to day by the senate committee on commerce. The bill authorizing Captain Cowdon and a sociates to proceed to work is pending before the committee. and provides that they shall be paid $500 OOO for every foot the flood level of the river shall be reduced by the outlet, the figures to be ascertained by a commission. In case the outlet shall not be successul in 1 educing the flood level, no payment is to be made by the government. H. J Shultheis, of the legislative committee of Knights of Labor and federation of labor advocated the Lake Borgne outlet. He said the levee system had cost over $90,000,000 and that ii was supported by an organization in the states where the money was expended so strong as to prevent the agitation in that section of the country of any other plan. Shultheis was requested by Chairman Frye to prepare and file a brief giving the names of engineers who approved the outlet system. The committee then adjourned. THIE SENATE.

Washington, April 25.—The senate bill to authorize the sale of timber on the land* reserved for the Menominee Indians in Wisconsin was placed on the calendar.

Pending the discussion the senate took up aud pissed the house joint resolution appropriating $150 OOO for the relief of destitution in the district overflowed by the Mississippi river and its tributaries. Tho consideration of the land forfeiture bill was then resumed. Mr. Call began his speech but soon stopped to make tho complaint that he had but few hearers, he said if the people could only look in and witness the scene in the senate chamber they would form an opinion that the day was passing when senators were of any use in gov-veminent of the country. He then re sumed the argument in explanation and advocacy of the amendment offered by him in ihe interest of the settlers and railroad lands in Florida. Messrs. George and Pasco also spoke, and the bill went over with< ut action until Monday next. After the deliverance of late Rep resentatifla Gay, of the senate adjourned. THS HO GSB. ben voted against the bill because it was the republican caucus bill and because, as Bland said, it was the worst bill from the silver standpoint that had yet come before the committee. When the substitute is offered in the house Bland will present as a counter proposition his free coinage bill. ARMY CHANGES. It is generally expected that the death of General Crook will result in a change of military division commands, but Secretary Proctor said to-day no changes would be made for at least two months It is understood the date of retirement of Brigadier General Grierson, July 8, has been fixed for the re arrangement of the p rind psi commands, and the present plan contemplates the transfer of General Howard to Chicago and General Miles to New York, giving Generals Stanley, Gibbon, Pilger, Merritt or Brooks command of the division of the Pacific.

A CLOUD BUK8T. of secret societies, and it has become essential for the successful politician to have the support of these orders. If it seems politically dangerous for any one to oppose these secret socities, what will be the risk if we allow the system to grow until it attains its full height? * In Vermont a penalty of $200 is inflicted upon a person who subscribes to a secret oath not authorized by law. Such laws should be adopted by all the commonwealths. Put away oaths and no secret societies will exist. It is high time to carry that principle through all our commonwealths. “I do not wish to attack any one’s religion. I speak of the Roman Catholic religion with all due respect. I am not here to discuss that. Jesuitism is a sword drawn of late to destroy our common school system.

Probira London, April 25. —The Herald to day publishes an interesting account of an interview with Bismarck The prince said if in power he would not interfere with the workmen on May Day. Neither would he display anxiety, which would only increase the aggressiveness of the agtators. The antagonism between the employers and the employed was the natural law and necessity of human Progreso. Progress would cease should men ever become satisfied. He dwelt upon the need of combating socialism, the victory of which, he said, would mean a government by the least intelligent. He predicted socialism would give a deal of trouble yet. He said the man who would yield to the present manifestation was a coward, and it was sometimes true benevolence to shed the blood of the riotious minority in the defense of the law abiding majority. He declared May Day was not a dangerous enemy. The naming of the day for assault need not be decided. It would be merely a sham fight like that of the Salvation army. general foreign new*.

The saloon is still here. The fight is still on. The liquor traffic, if anything, is still more aggressive, more destructive than ever. We believe that the holding of such a convention is practicable. Hence we ask all local, state and national temperance societies (regardless of sex or poli tics,) and all churches and Sunday schools, and other associations which hate the saloon, to send representatives to a National Temperance congress, to be held in New York city, May 14 and 15, 1890, in the Broadway Tabernacle church (Dr. William M. Taylor, pastor.) Mass meeting will be held in the evening and conferences will be held during the day sessions; the day sessions beginning at IO a. rn. each day. We urge friends everywhere to take steps immediately to see that every section of the country is fully repressed. Let this be both a national conference and a national mass meeting for the overthrow of the liquor traffic. Every person opposed to the saloon who will present himself at the congress will be welcomed as a member. Tarn Ai Downpour of Rain at Galnoi-vllli, Texas. Jamesville, April 25.—A cloud burst struck the city last night, lasting four hours and deluging the country to a depth of several feet.

OUTLIVES HEK GKA.VD SIONE. Special to Tbx Ha wa-Rn. Ottumwa, April 25.—The Burlingtons arrived here at 11:30 this morning and went to the ball park chock full of ginger, determined to get even with our boys for what they did to them Monday and Tuesday. Umpire Standoff called game at 3:15 and Burlington, who took the field, put in Anderson and Hines as their battery, while Webber and Hog reiver were in the points for the home team. It was a great game of ball to witness, one-handed pick-ups and rn ning catches being the order of the day. The Burlingtons won the game on its merits but had to work a great deal harder than they did at Cedar Rapids cr Monmouth, and we are well satisfied with the result cf to-day’s game. The battery was lighter on both sides, the only batters who managed to get more than one hit being Sharp and Anderson, the former getting two singles and a double and the latter two doubles and one single. Katz made the longest hit of the season sending the ball far over the right field fence and into the river netting him a home run. About four hundred people braved the cold and sat shivering and stamping their feet all through the game, but not a person left his or her seat until the last man was retired which was just one hour and three-quarters after the game started. The features of the game was the general playing of the Burlingtons. Hines’ catching being most noteworthy and the batting of Sharp, Anderson and Katz.

Clayton as candidate for congress. A majority of negroes. who testified were unable to read and could not tell whether the tickets howo them were the ones they voted or not They were positive, however, of having voted for Clayton. In very few '’asea the ballots showed they voted for Breckenridge In this state the number is written on the ticket correiponding to the number opposite the name of the voter in the poll books, end it is very easy to identify tuts ticket ca?t by each voter. In nearly a1! cases where the negro was unable to read the ballot produced was a straight democratic one. SOME OLD WINE. Fraud Blan!lag of IMI Club! N ATIONAL LEAGUE. Boston____ Philadelnh Cleveland.

Lewistown, III , April 25.—In the cemetery near this city is the following remarkable epitaph on a rather stately monument: Christiania E.. wife of Peter Bordner. Born Oct. 26,1789. The remarkable thing about it is the fact that this epitath does not tell when this lady, born more than one hundred years ago, died. The explanation is that she is not dead, but resides in this town ship, and is as well and chipper as most women aged sixty. The monument has been awaiting the death of the lady whose name it bears for many years, and in all probability will continue to do so until the old lady is a number of years past one hundred.

Iii Luoi of Two Min Who Out VV iiri It Wa. We had stopped for a few minutes at an inn in a lonely part of a wild moorland country. When we got on the way again, he said, “A laughable thing occurred there a few years ago.” I begged to hear the story, and he narrated how, as the old man who kept the inn was one night about closing up, there arrived a coach-and-pair and deposited an old gentleman and his son, or his secretary, at the door. It was a very unusual thing to have visitors of this stamp, and the ol I innkeeper was quite flurried. However, he showed his guests into his best room, lighted a fire, and asked what he could get for them. Tho old gentleman, who s- emed to be very particular about his eating, thereupon ordered tho only thieg he could have upon so short a notice namely, chickens and boiled bacon. Away went Boniface to work, and in due course produced a supper fit for a king. The old gentleman rubbed bis hands with delight, and, observing that good eating called for good drinking, desired to be informed what wine his host had to offer. The worthy innkeeper shook his head and said he had none at all; there was no demand for such liquor in those parts Tho elderly guest’s coun tenance fell, and he looked greatly grieved. The landlord loft the room, but presently returned, aud. putting his head in at the door, said, “I wasn’t just right in saying there was no wine ai all in the house. There is some down in the cellar, but it’s been lying there so long-over thirty years-that I’m afeard you wouldst like to tackle it.” The old gentleman p* t down his knife and fork, and made aa it he was thinking seriously; then lo said that, teeing there was nothing else in the drinkable line in the place, he thought they would try a bottle. It turned out to be a tine old crusted port; and before they went to bed the gentlemen disposed of several bottles. When in the morning they came to settle, they found tbs* tne innkeeper had charged them just f mr shillings for wine. Every week after that the twain drove over from Y , dined, and drank a couple of bo‘ties of the port; and this they continue d to do until the cellar was empty. Then the old gentleman bade the worthy innkeeper good bye, slipped a couple of sovereigns into his hand, and said, “Host, I would have continued to visit thy house till the day of j ldgment if thy wine had only held out I” National LeoRui.
