Ti IMT BILL. THE SEDATE MEASOHE PASSES THE HOOSE ALMOST UNANIMOUSLY. The Proceedings in the Senate—The President Signs the Oklahoma Bill —A Bill to Amend the Interstate Commerce Act* Washington, May 2.—The house took up consideration of the senate bill to protect trade and commerce against un lawful restraints and monopolists. After a discussion, covering, as Mr. Head said, every question other than the one under consideration, Mr. Bland, of Missouri, offered an amendment making unlawful any contract or agreemen to prevent competition in the sale or purchase of any commodity transported from one state to another. The amendment was adopted on a viva voce vote, and the bill was passed in the same manner with single negative vote. 'JCBLK HILS ATM. The Custom* Administrative Bill Ub-d*r Discussion. Washington, May 2.— In the senate the committee on interstate commerce made a report on the subject of Amen-can commerce by Canadian railroads. Ordered printed. Vest intorduced a bill to amend the interstate commerce act stating that his object was to place express companies under the provisions of that act, and asked the attention of the interstate commerce committee on the subject The bill was referred to that committee Mitchell offered a resolution which went over till to-morrow, calling on the secretary of the treasury for information as to the importation and exportation of gold and silver during the year 1889 and as to bank notes retired and the kind of money issued to take their place. The concurrent resolution heretofore offered requesting the president to enter into negotiation with the governments of Great Britain and Mexico with a view to securing treaty stipulations for preventing the entry of Chinese laborers into the United States was taken up and agreed to. A message from the house with the house amendment to the senate dependent pennon bill was laid before the senate and the chairman of the committee on pensions moved that the amendment bo non-concurred in and a conference was asked. Sherman suggested that the bill and amendment be referred to the committee on pensions, and it was done. The customs administrative bill was taken up, the question being on Gray’s amendment to strike out of the four teenth section the words "except in cases wherein applications shall be flied in the circuit court within the time and in the manner provided for in section fifteen of this act," and insert a provision that where congress has not clearly and distinctly declared a classification on any imported article, etc., the lowest of rates shall be levied and collected, and the collector shall inform the secretary of the treasury for report to congress. The discussion of the amendment was interrupted by Platt, to say that he was not present when tho report was presented from the interstate commerce on the subject of Canadian railroads and ss a member of the committee did not assent to that report. He thought sections of act as to the long and short haul and pooling should be repealed. The discussion of Gray’s amendment was resumed and in the course of it Sherman declared that if he had his way, he never would allow any of those revenue cnees to go to any court. It was all administrative and not a judicial question and if any grievous error had been committed the remedy was to be furnished by congress After a long debate Gray’s amendment was rejected without division. Mr. Gray offered another and was discussing it when Frye remarked that it would cover plain, palpable attempted frauds. The remark was resente; by Gray, who asserted that "plain, palpable, attempted frauds" were on the other side of the chamber; and the rights of Amesican citizens engaged in foreign commerce were in the right and that business which competed with business favored the manufacturing classes. The amendment was rejected. The discussion was interrupted to receive a message from the house, announcing the passage of the senate anti trust bill with amendments, which was referred to the judiciary committee The discussion of the customs bill was then resumed. At four o’clock the discussion was closed and the senate commenced to vote on the bill and pending amendments. Mr. Vest called for a separate vote on the committee’s amendment to the third section, to strike out the words, "entry shall be liquidated accordingly, the owner, importer, consignee, or agent of imported merchandise, subject to reap pointment by the board of general ap {Kaisers, shall have the privilege of beng present with or without counsel aa he may elect," and insert the following: "Collector, or person acting as such, shall ascertain, fix and liquidate the rate and amount of duties to be paid on such merchandise and dutiable costs and charges thereon, according to law." The amendment was agreed to, 34 to 18. Mr. Hi8cock’s proposition to give a trial by jury in certain cases, felled to secure the assent of the committee and was not urged. All other committee amendments were agreed to and the bill was passed, yeas 35, nays 13, (Payne being the ouly democrat voting in the affirmative. Conferees on disagreeing votes were appointed.

THS TONNAGE AND OCEAN HAIL SERVICE BILLS. Senator Frye will report to-morrow, from the committee on commerce, the bill known as the "shipping league ton nagebill" already favorably reported from the committee on merchant marine, to the house with amendments; also the bill "to provide for ocean mail service between the United States and foreign ports, and to promote commerce." which has been known as the Frye bill.

A LAND OFFICE DECISION. Commisssoner general of the land office, in a decission to-day, holds that moneys paid by the pnblic land entry men to receivers at the local land offices in their official capacity are, as soon as paid, public moneys within the intent of the law, and such payments are held to be payments to the government. In the case in point, receiver Smith, at Tucson, Arizona, absconded with a large amount of money paid to him by entrymen upon making final proofs. The decision heretofore has been against the allowance of entry when the money had been paid to tne defaulting receiver before entry was allowed and the final receipt given.

In his message accompanying it he says, in part: "I have steadily opposed every effort to impose unnecessary restrictions and impracticable relations upon our election system which are not adapted to our free institutions or which would render our elections enormously expensive and vexatious. It is to be regretted, lowever, that such endeavors has only been partially successful. In the interest of an honorable compromise of differences of opinions and with a sincere desire to agree upon a bill which should accomplish something towards the purification of our elections even though it shall not be wholly satisfactory. I have felt constrained to yield my views as to several provisions which I must still deem imperfect. * * I am not disposed, however, to haggle about mere words or useless technicalities. * * * During all the controversy of the past three years, I have invariably insisted upon the right of an elector to prepare his own ballot at I home and bring it with him to the polls and vote it, and so long as this biff does not materially infringe upon that right, I am content."_ TBI CLAYTON INVESTIGATION. clean THE SALE TICKETS.

He believed his brother was I killed by Oliver Bently and Bob Pate. He was firmly convinced the persons who | stole the ballot boxes killed his brother.

As it was, not more than five hundred patriotic citizens scattered themselves in variegated groups over the auditorium. They saw a most exciting and hotly contested game of ball and were not backward in attesting the fact. The weather was superb. The sun shone bright enough to satisfy the veriest base ball crank going. A delightful breeze swept in off of the river, bringing with it the sedative odors of the newly born spring. It was not too warm; it was not too cold. It was just right, and the frisky ballista seemed to be imbued with the etherial mildness of the occasion as they capered about the enclosure in their preliminary practice. Both clubs created a favorable impression in their practice work, but the crowd seemed to be somewhat partial to the home players and accorded them much applause in their pretty handling of the ball. Promptly at 3:30 Umpire Reeves stepped to the plate and whispered: "Play ball!" Faintly the echo returned from the flint hill over the way, "Play ball," and Shugert, for the home team, picked up a bat and posed himself at the plate. Four times the ball end of the umpire’s indicator clicked and Shugert went to first. He didn’t roost there long but took a tumble to second, amidst great applause. Katz tried to knock the ball over the fence and bring him in but only succeeded in placing it in the center fielder’s hands. This sent Shugert to third and Hines* single brought him in, scoring the first run of the game. The visitors went out in I, 2, 3 order. Thus the first inning was highly satis factory to the spectators, who indicated their feelidgs plainly. The second inning was productive of two runs for the home team secured by singles from Van Zant and Katz and Anderson’s double, while the visitors were unceremoniously blanked, Anderson striking out two men had-running. The home team made another run in the fourth by singles of Anderson and Cole. The visitors did not get further than second. A scorching single by Hines in the fifth was productive of another straight mark when backed by looked like several more runs were Fuller’s terrific three-bagger. It due, but Neal steadied down and struck out Corbett. Van Zant and Anderson perished miserably on pop-ups, and the visitors came to bat. Vandever was an easy victim to cir cumstances, and the visiting Quincy cranks began to make up their minds to a sorry defeat, when Mahoney stepped up to the plate and whaled the official leather for three cushions, coming home on Neal’s out and a sacrifice by Routcliff. The sixth inning opened with the usual run for Burlington caused by a terrible scare which Shugert gave the leather sending it so far out into the field that he roosted on second base before it had been fielded in. He stole third and came in on a snap shot by Hines, who, however, climbed the golden m r„ didn’t have a pass. Bus Hit*. It was a game "for your blokes.’ Shugert runs like a house a’fire. Sam Hill Steve will twirl to-day. Murray for the visitors did very fielding. Will Fuller’s fine three bagger was a [beautiful hit. Shugert caught the crowd with his work at short. "Hunkey" Hines did his usual great art behind the bat. Vandever’s throwing was favorably commented upon. Anderson was in great form to-day, striking out men with wonderful ease Hines made a great slide to second in the first and got a yell from the crowd. Varney managed to get his optics glued to the ball every time he went to bat. Corbett’s fine running stop of Long’s low grounder in the fourth inning was heartily commended. Manager Powers, of the Galesburgs, is not discouraged. He says his men are batting the ball hard and will get there yet. The Quincy boys are a handsome, athletic looking company of gentlemen and won much favor with the fair portion of the audience. The Burlington people were not a bit stingy with their applause. A number of pretty plays of the visitors received hearty acknowledgments. Mr. Fred. Mason, of Rockford, 111., who is visiting Manager Anderson, secured some instantaneous photographic views of the game yesterday. Reeves umpired a generally fair game, his decisions rather favoring the home team, if any. He has a good voice and speaks right out in meeting. In the third, Pitcher Neal was hit on the hand with a pitched ball and had to take a rest. He finished the game in pretty good shape, however. Katz picked out a ball that looked like it would go over the fence and then struck it. His bat broke, however, and he had to be content with a single base. If there is any point of the game that Dickey Vanzint don’t see with his naked eye its no use for any one else to look for it with the most powerful microscope The wire netting covering the windows on the ball trains are an excellent thing. Last year there was too much danger attending the promiscuous climbing in and out of the car windows The Narrow Gauge men have placed wire netting along the sides of the cars over the windows of the ball train to prevent the dear cranks from hurting themselves in their hurry to get out at the grounds. In the seventh inning Vandever grabbed a red-hot liner from Breckenridge’a bat and dropped it, Breckenridge thinking he held it, stopped running and allowed Van to recover the ball in time to cut him off at first. Manager Anderson said he knew he would win, because he had turned back a mule’s ear and blown into it previous to going out to the grounds. He said the old Indian woman told him if he did that and escaped alive he would be sure to have good luck. The official score sheets are handsomely gotten up, the cover being printed in red and gold with an elaborate design showing a blazing sun with catcher’s mask in the center, a base ball with crossed bats and a birds eye view of the Flint Hills.

It is not probable, however, that in cities like Des Moines the stocks of such agents will remain free from seizure by the constables. The latter will swear out warrants as heretofore, and seize the goods, only to return them by order ol the courts, as in this way they will get their fees, which is about all they care for. KANSAS OPINIONS, Topeka, Ran., May 2 —There seems to be little question that the decision oi the United States supreme court on the original package question is far-reaching, and that under that decision liquor may be sold in this or any other state in the original package regardless of any prohibitory or license law. The best lawyers almost without exception take this view of the matter. Governor Humphrey said regarding the decision "From the meager report now at hand it seems to go a long ways in the wrong direction from the Kansas standpoint. Indeed, the enemies of prohibition who seem to be so hilarious over the result will find that it is more far reaching in its ssope and inevit able consequences than would appear at first blush, and in that respect entirely too sweeping for their purpose, for the blow leveled at prohibition by the practical effect of the decision also strikes down the license system prevail ing in most of the states. The constitu tion for years hedged about and protect ed human slavery, and has been made to cover other wrongs, but it remained for the present court to find within its pro visions a shield and protection for the traffic in pint bottles of whisky—a traffic that has been under the ban of the law and of popular judgment for hundreds o: years—by elevating it to the dignity o: commerce between the states. Congress can and no doubt will in the near future exercise its exclusive power to regulate commerce between the states in such a manner as to leave to the states absolute authority and control over the sub ject, so far as intoxicating Ii quors are concerned. There is a bill now on the senate calendar for that purpose, as I tm advised, favorably recommended by th^committee* The license states even will want this done in the light of the recent decision. Until congress shall do this the whole question raised by the new doctrine of the supreme court becomes a matter of ffttinaai |g well ii state politics. It will figure in congressional and national elections    eliminated    by the relief sug gested. The friends of the saloon will find ftfii* victory short-lived, if indeed any victory at all.

The damage was promptly repaired and caused no delay, bridge No. 261 A on the main line west of Krum caught fire yesterday morning and suffered considerable damage. These make three bridges in the state on the Burlington lines burned within a few days. It is supposed the dry weather las rendered them particularly liable to become ignited from sparks of passing ocomotivea. Yesterday morning a special went west on the Burlington consisting of private cars No. 200, IOO and 50 Car No. 200 came in on train No 3 at 6:30, and later a special was made up of the three cars above named and sent west about eight o’clock. The party on board consisted of President Perkins, Vice-President and Treasurer J. C. Peasley, 2nd Vice-President and probable General Manager Gee. B. Harris, Supt. Brown and Division Supt.

Relief department took effect May I, and are considered a decided step in advance: New employes not over forty-five years of age who pass a satisfactory medical examination, may become members of the Relief Fund immediately upon entering the service, instead of waiting one month, as hitherto required by the regulations. The distinction between accident on duty and accident off duty is abolished, so that in cases of accident off duty, happening on or after May 1st, 1890, benefits will be paid for the first six days of disability, also necessary surgical attendance. Members of the Relief fund who have been in the service three years and members of the fund one year immediately preceding termination of service, may continue their membership after leaving the service in so far as concerns the the death benefit. The rates for death benefit after termination of service will be based on the age of the member when he joined the Fund, and will be the same as the rates charged for additional death benefit, under regulation 38. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat says that there is a strong suspicion that the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, and Commodore Bart E. Linehan, of Dubuque, are working hand in glove to secure the franchise of the Wiggins Ferry company’s transfer privileges. It is thought that the road wants these privileges for an entrance to the city instead of its outlined route along the levee. The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy railroad on the 1st of the month offered its stockholders the right to subscribe to 5 per cent fifteen year debenture bonds at par in the ratio of IO per cent of their present holdings' of stock. This will make a total issue of $7,650 450 bonds. The new bonds will be convertible into stock at par and will be virtually a call upon the Chicago, Burlington and Quia' cy stock. The proceeds of the issue will be applied to IOO miles of new road in Wyoming and in the vicinity of the Black Hills and to retire about $2 500,000 bonds falling due the present year. The issue has no relation to the Chicago, Burlington and Northern purchase. The directors of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy railroad*have declared a quarterly dividend of 1$ per cent. The Davenport Democrat says "John Steele, known to fame as "Coal Oil Johnny," is station agent of the Burlington and Missouri river road at Ash land, Nebraska, where he has lived for over twelve years He ran through fortune of nearly $500 OOO in the three years from 1865 to 1868. The old Steele farm, near Oil City has been revived, and is now making another man rich. —Tickets for Rhea this morning. Hoary Goers*** Leas Speech. San Francisco Wasp. We wonder if Henry George will ever forget that memorable anniversary of the Declaration of Independence when he delivered the better part of a seven toen-column oration at the California Theater? He began his oration late in the afternoon. After he had spoken for an hour or so the gallery began to man! fest unmistakeable signs of impatience. The orator deemed it ti* ~*ly to skip hundred pages and co I’ude with the peroration. This was deft** done, and then. getting fresh wind, he began: "A thousand years hence who will fight for liberty f* "A thousand years hence who will write for liberty?" "A thousand years hence who will speak for liberty?'' The pause at the last liberty-inspiring interrogatory was broken from a voice in the gallery, which rang thus through the theater: "You will, Harry George." There was an explosion of laughter. The merriment spread to the stage, and in the midst of it Henry George folded his papers and "silently stole away." Bepale Flakes makes a delicious dish. Try them. Your grocer keeps them Chicago, May 2- — The threatened strikes in this city, which may be said to have technically begun yesterday when organized labor took a holiday, were not made apparent until this morning, when the men failed to resume work at any shops. The black road in the vicinity of McCormick’s reaper works had much the same appearance to-day as it had four years ago. None but strikers could be seen and they had entire possession. Every man, boy and girl employed in the Malleable Iron works at Twenty-sixth and Rockwell streets, is cut. The total number of employes is 1,990. No particular reason was assigned by the men for quitting work. A committee was appointed to night to wait upon the officials but they declined to appear before their employers. President Bally called the strikers about him and upbraided them for going out without any notice and told them that when they found out what they wanted to let him know their demands. Tho men seemed not to know what to say in reply. The chairman of the moulder's committee says they want ten hours as a day’s work, and fifteen cents advance in wages, and fifty per cent extra for over time. At the great McCormick reaper works about fifty moulders went out, but work was progressing as usual. A large preparation of the employes in the foundries of Barnum & Richards, Ajax Forge Co., and the Chicago Car Wheel Co , went out, and these concerns are closed. As elsewhere, no formal demands were made on emyloyers. At the Wells-French Car Co.’s shops every one of the thousand employes went out and the shops were closed. The blacksmiths were the only ones who made known their demand, which was for eight hours as a day’s work. At F. E. Robert’s foundry it was said the men seemed anxious for either a strike or a vacation, so the works has been shut down till next Monday to accommodate them and make repairs. The entire number of employes of N. K. Fairbanks & Co , soaps and lard manufacturers will go out Monday. The coopers to the n amber of eighty struck this morning. The report is current to-night that nearly all the planing mill men in the city will quit to-morrow. It was also said that all the woodworkers in whatever branch of business were restless and might join the strike at any moment. Everything remained quiet notwithstanding a large number of men are idle, and the police say they do not anticipate any disturbance. Four hundred men in Deman’s furniture factory and seven hundred in the Chicago Cottage organ factory struck this afternoon for eight lours. Several thousand lumber shovers in the lumber district along the Black road are dissatisfied and a strike is anticipated among them. CARPENTERS STRIKE AT LOUISVILLE. Louisville, Ky., May 2.—Of 1,262 journeymen carpenters in this city, between 900 and 1,000 struck to-day for eight hours and 25 cents an hour as the minimum wages. Non unionises are fast joining the strikers, and by to-morrow but a handful will be at work. One big contractor only signed the arbitration committee’s agreement, and the builders’ and trades’ exchange so far has ignored the movement. FOREIGN STRIKE TROUBLES. Madrid, May 2—At Valencia many of the masters conceded the demands of the workmen but the strikers prevented the men from resuming work. The railway goods porters and dock men became riotous, but were suppressed by the cavalry. Troops are now guarding the threatened factories and other establishments. A STATE OF SIEGE DECLARED. Barcelona May 2.—The strikers conducted themselves in a riotous manner throughout the day. They impeded all kinds of business, stopping market carts and scattering and trampling upon their contents.

Late to-night striker fired a tool hut; the guard charged on the mob and two strikers were injured Another group attacked a printing office in which a proclamation was being printed. They put a stop to the work, and the authorities were obliged to get the proclamation printed elsewhere under military protection. RESUMED WORK. Lisbon, May 2 - The strikers have resumed work throughout the country. STRIKERS COMMIT EXCESSES.
