Washington, May 3.—Senator Jones B Beck, of Kentucky, dropped dead at the B iliimore and Potomac station at four o’clock this afternoon. He had juit arrived from New York, accompanied by his daughter, Mrs. Goodloe, wife of Major Giodloe, of the United States Marino Corps. He got off the train with the rest of the passengers and walked with his daughter the entire length of the platform and through the gate lead* ing to ihe station proper. He seemed to walk with effort arid to breathe with labor, but these symtoms were usual accompaniments of exertion with him for some months past. After passing into the station the senator and his daughter stopped and were joined by bis private secretary who had brought a carriage to take them home. A few words were exchanged with regard to the care of the baggage, when the senator suddenly turned pale, aid with the remark “I feel dizzy” fell into the arms of his companions. They could not support his weight and he dropped to the floor where he swooned away. Willing hands were numerous, and the limp and help leas body was borne into the cfflce of the station master, about twenty feet away. When the physicians arrived there was nothing for them to do except examine the body and determine the cause of death. A superficial examination only was possible at the time, but was sufficient to satisfy the physicians that death had resulted from paralysis of the heart. Tho news was telegraphed to the capitol and subsequently spread to all sections of the city. Representatives Breckinridge, C truth, Stone and others of the Kentucky congressional delega tion repaired to the station at once and arranged for the removal of the remains to a more suitable place. Sen a* or Beck has not been regular in attendance upon the sessions of the senate for two years, and was in his seat but a few times in this congress. The last legislation of general importance with which he was connected was the “under valuation bill'’ which passed the Banate in March, 18S8 He worked on that measure with constant devotion, says Senator A liaon, who was associated with him, until it was disposed of. One morning shortly afterwards he came into tho room of the committee saying he had been sick the night before and was not then feeling well. That was the first, time he had been known to be sick. From that time forward he was never a well man again- During the debate on the senate substitute for the Mills bill he was not able to take part and his absence was a great loss to the democratic ranks. He was not able to be present at the opening of the special se3 iion of tho senate in March, 1889, and was sworn in by President Pro Tem logalls some days afterwards. He has visited the capitol occasionally since the opening of tho fifty first congress, but took no part in the proceedings, except to vote. His last appearance in the chamber was on the day the case of the new Montana senators, Banders and Powers, was settled. Senator Beck wrs greatly beloved by the employes of the senate for his uniform kindness and courtesy, and his active interest in their welfare. James B. Back, of Lexington, Kentucky, was born in Dumfriesshire, Boot-land, February 13. 1822; received an academic education in Scotland; graduated as a lawyer at the Transyl vania University, Lexington, Kentucky, in March, 1846, and practiced there, never holding any office until elected representative in the fortieth, forty-first, forty second and forty-third congresse; declined a re election as representative: was elected to tho United States senate ag a democrat to succeed John W S iPv^ngon, democrat; took hie seat March 5 1877, and was re-elected in 1683 and 1888 His term of service would have expired March 3.1895. The body of Senator Back was re moved from the station to the house of Representative Breckenridge of Ken tucky. No arrangements have as yet been made for the funeral. Major and Mrs. G jodloe, son-in-law and daughter of Senator Beck have expressed their willingness to leave all the arrau gear eats for the funeral in the hands of the Ken tucky delegation. mouth of the Ohio river—tach sum to be I immediately available The conference reports of public] building bills for buildings at Ashland, Wisconsin, (limb; $100 000) and Cedar] Rapids, Iowa, (limit $150,000) were] agreed to.

Plscarda have been scattered broadcast urging the strikers to pillage the city. Mounted police charged the rioters, but the latter resisted and attacked the police, finally compelling them to retire In the evening three regiments arrived in the city and the governor issued a proclamation threatening death to any of the strikers who interfered with any men willing to work. The mob became cowed at the firm attitude of the authorities and the presence of the military and slowly dispersed. At noon to day, notwithstanding the fear that further trouble was imminent, the public market was opened as usual and a number of workmen went back to their employment this morning. Anarchists are actively engaged in attempting to foment I trouble aid they have called meetings for Sunday. They declare that the time has arrived for the beginning of a social revolution. The strikers thiB evening have again assumed a threatening attitude and more trouble is feared. Midnight.—The strikers assembled in thousands. Troops enaeavored to disperse them, but were met with stout resistance. Some revolver shots were fired at the soldiers, who replied with a volley. The mob was then charged and scattered at the point of the bayonet. Three were shot and seriously wounded. Many arrests were made._____ OKNXBAL FO UNION NIWA Bater* General Boulanger Will Not to JTrane* at Present.

Th* Stsamvlilp Subsidy Bill—Senator Bee*’* Death Announesd Washington, May 3 —Id the senate Mr. F.ye, from the committee on com alerce said he was instructed by that committee to report two important bil’s The first one was to place the American merchant marine, engaged in foreign trade on an equality with that of other nations This, he proceeded to say, is the bill known as the shipping league tonnage bill. The other bill is to provide for an ocean mail service between the United States and foreign states, and to promote commerce. The two bills were read the first and second times and placed on the calendar Mr. Vest, as a member of the commit tee on commerce, dissented from the re port of the ms j ority and said so long as the present system of legislation, discouraging commerce with foreign nations, continue d, we cannot bring about by subsidies what we are systematically endeavoring to prevent. Mr. Coke also dissented, but did not give his reasons. A number of bills were passed, among them: Banate bill for the relief of Na thaniel McKay and the executors of Donald McKay; senate bill to amend the preemption and homestead laws (pro Tiding for the selection of lands for edu notional purposes in lieu of those appro priated for other purposes); senate bill appropriating $5,000 for a farm for la dian training school at Pierre, S. D senate bill constituting Cairo, 111., as a post of delivery iu the district of New Orleans; senate bill amending the act to constitute Lincoln, Nebraska, a post of delivery. At a quarter past four Mr. Harris interrupted the proceedings and had read a bulletin announcing the death of Sen ator Beck. He moved an adjournment which was agreed to, and the senators and officials gathered around Harris ex pressing to each other tine ire sorrow at the sudden death of a man so much loved and respected. A Farmin’ Alii**** 1k Tremble. New Orleans May 3 —A Picayune’s Austin, Texas, special says: “The Farmers’ Alliance of Texas is in trouble aud some sensational developments are ru mored. In 1887 the leaders organized at Dallas an exchange with a capital of half a million, the stock being taken by subordinate lodges. The exchange lasted about two years, during which time it is alleged nearly a quarter of a million dollars were Equandered and there is nothing to show for it but about $40,000 worth of property. The farmers who contributed the money are anxious to have an investigation and will insti tute suit to recover certain property in Dallas now occupied as the alliance and commercial agency." The (Jayton Iavsatlgnfla* Little Rock, May 8 —The proceedings of the Clayton-BrecUnridge inves ligation committee to-day were very sensational. James Bater, the man sup posed to have discovered the murderer of Clayton, told abDut the same story, im pleating Thomas Hooper as the mur derer, that was contained in the report telegraphed from L ls Angeles. To-night James Hooper corroborated much cf the evidence given by Sater. Daring Mrs. Hooper’s examination she denied ever having heard or met Sater. This afternoon, her son, in the presence of Governor Bagle and others, saw Sater, and called him by name. They con versed sometime about their mutual acquaintance in Lib Angeles where the Hoopers and Eaters had lived in the same house.

Dssll a Fatal Blaw la a Q Barrat. Coldwater, Kaa , May 3 —Dr. Prichard and S M. Miles, an attorney, met at a crossing yesterday and engaged in a quarrel, which resulted in Miles hitting Prichard over the head with a revolver, felling him to the ground. Prichard died yesterday afternoon. Miles fled from town, and at a late hour had not been captured._ Murdered la Their Beds. Baltimore, May 3.—Mrs. Sarah Blaney, a widow aged 77, and her daughter Caroline, were found murdered in their beds this morning. Their skulls were crushed in with a blunt instrument William Blaney, a grandson of the old lady, has been arrested on suspicion. Robbery is thought to have bean the motive for the crime._ Th* Lad! sa DallcfelM The pleasant effect and the safety with which ladies liquid fruit laxative, Sirup the summer’s coming warmth which makes us all feel so lazy, and when we lounge around and stretch ont beneath the shade of some budding maple tree, or inhale the sweet perfume of the ap pie blossom, we complain of spring fever, and catch the “rumatiz." There are times when writing is rather hard work, and when the eye leads the brain to a rather fitful flittering from one sub jectto another. A bright spring day with the flowers just peeping from the mother earth, the little birds out courting, the sunshine so bright, the air so cud and saying to you “come outside," ll are conditions to make a task, otherwise a recreation, rather a burden, and bring ere you know it the words “O botheration" to the lips. But enough of this. I started out to say something of the various important things which have taken their places on the pages of history the past week, and have wandered off myself. la tho first place perhaps nothing has ever occurred in the annals of attempted restraint of the liquor selling of this country which is as important and as far reaching as the decision of the United States in the ease which was appealed to that tribunal, and in which the decision of Iowa jurists of no mean ability was overruled and reversed. What will be the affect and what will be the further policy of the prohibitionists, nr what will be the political phase of the liquor question cow, are all inquiries which when asked bring forth an array of answers as varied and as numerous as the tints of ribbon found in large dry goods stores. Does it mean the death knell of prohibition? In the camps of the ultra prohibitionists and those whose zeal has carried them to the extreme end of the lane there is consternation and dismay. Now for congress, is their cry, and national prohibition is their war cry, but, alas, they do not recognize how hopelessly they are in the minority, and that the only certain way of adopting this method is by slowly educating the masses to the necessity, for their own benefit, and that of prosterity of leaving all liquors alone When the moral tone of the whole country hes such a ring, there will be no trouble about prohibition Some of our good people throw up their hands and cry “all is lost, prohibition is dead." Others, again, cry “now for license; that’s the only way to control the liquor traffic." During the few days after the news of the decision was published to the world every elector thought it his bounden duty to say something upon the subject, and many were the able, inter esting columns written upon the spur of the moment. What are the facts. Simp ly this. Congress alone has the right to regulate interstate commerce and the consumption of I quor bought out of the state by individuals can not be stopped by ' state police regulations. The great goal to be reached by the prohibitory statutes upon our law books was the banishment from without the borders of 'our great state that curse of civilization, the gilded saloon. It has in some measure accomplished this, and to the minds of eome the thought is sug Rested that now as the supreme court has shown a legal way in which the drinker can get what he believes neces Bary to his existence, there will be no longer any implied excuse for the exist ance of the little “hole in the wall or the boot legger " The liquor must remain in the original package Of course this can be a pint flask; but to ship a carload of pint flasks, as some of our papers fear, and all to be in “original packages in a test case, the supreme court would de cid a a'that point), would raise the price of the much desired product considerable, and those who it is most necetsary to protect from the evils arising from indulgence in spirits would not have the cash to spend in that way Again, an agent is the only ooe who can deliver the goods other than when it is shipped direct to the consumer. The law definitions, etc., of agency are pretty broad, but yet one who has liquor shipped to him direct without some knowledge as to who it is to be delivered to is hardly an agent within the meaning of the law. Again, it is doubtful if, unless his sales were made in the name of the foreign merchants he would be, properly speaking, an agent." AI is not lost, my brethren, and if the fair minded 8tephie bent sat izen can and should stand- There should be no uncertainty about that. But, when, how and where strike? Let us not rush into the fight again without first knowing how many streams we have to cross, how many miles we must travel and how we can protect our rear and not be separated from our bale of supplies On last Sunday it chanced to ba my lot to be standiog near the upper end of the road to Graceland cemetery at Chicago. I was on the extension to Clark street, and every half hour, yes, tv an more frequently, the funeral corteges would return, after leaving the dead within But alas, I wish I could leave unsaid the fact, that two-tbirds of them itopDed at the first, second, third or twentieth saloon and had a drink. Drinking, saloons are bad enough, but in such a place, at such a time. God grant the day may never come in Iowa, when you can count three hearses and ten carriages stopping in front of a saloon or liquor depot and hear through the curtained and closed doors the clink of glasses and the boisterous laughter of the inmates. I do not say the mourners, I cannot speak as to that. I was in a strange place and knew none, but I became interested, even in the vices of others, and in the two hours and over in which I watched and investigated this spectacle I saw enough to Bizz! Whizz! Bizz! Amidst the yell that arose from the the auditorium came the exquisite mur mer above recorded. Could Stephen have heard it and noted the sparkling eyes, the parted lips and -the flushed, eager face, his usefulness as a pitcher would have been clean gone for the remainder of the game. But the fair one referred to was not the only person who was completely carried away by the beautiful work of Burlington’s old pitcher yesterday after noon. Everyone of the four hundred people who attended the game were dead stuck on him. It was a great game. The dark bank of clouds that rolled up in the west early in the afternoon doubtless kept many people away from the grounds. Those who did attend would willingly have taken a ducking rather than missed it. The exercises started off briskly on time and the fun commenced at the start. Shugcrt led the yell producing by getting three balls and two strikes and then making a terrific drive to center for two cushions. The yell had hardly died away when Katz caused a vigorous and prolunged renewal of it by a duplicate of 8hugert’s hit, bringing in the latter and scoring the first run of the game.

Base hits, 3 o •-7 0-3 class or race, but rich and poor, American and foreign, a majority of all who returned on that street, ” dropped in at the back door of some saloon. No little law upon the statute bock will effect a remedy; nor should the friends of temperance or the laws of decency look for results soon. It will be a long struggle; we have yet to take the first decided steps. One great serious blunder of which we are guilty is, we take away, or wish to, the saloon, with its treasures of art, its gilded mirrors, its outside attractions, its good, pleasing music and dramatic entertainment, and give nothing in return. We do not “benefit" ourselves. Surely mankind can be moved by the soft strains of music, the beauties of the painters’ art, the smell of flowers, etc., etc, to enter a place where he can get a little lunch, a harmless cup of coffee, or a glass of lemonade, just as easily as he can be enticed into the present rum hole in our large cities. Now, here in Iowa, we could build those coffee houses, these public clubs without the compedI ion of the frescoed dens you ti ad in Chicago and the large cities in the east. “But the trouble has been in the past we have attempted this with no results," says our earnest and zealous temperance worker. Never. Where in Iowa is there a Cf ff ae house or lunch counter with reading rooms attached which contains a single treasure of painting or sculpture? This thing, if done at all, must not be done by halvas—expense should not be spared. No place offers so good a field to try the experiment as in our large cities. If half the effort was directed in this direction that is now expended in trying to mould the opinions of people by stern, cold law, what a difference could soon be seen. It is yet too early to it ll with any degree of certainty the full political meaning of this question, but there is a storm ahead and some one is going to get a seveie drenching. Iowa laborers should congratulate themselves, that not withstanding all the strikes, all the troubles, all the empty cupboards of our larger cities, the employer and employe within the bound of our fair state live in harmony and peace. The labor q lestion is by far the most important one that engages the attention of the American public to-day and politicians find the old text books are seriously in error when they endeavor to study the problems suggested and brought forth by the present unseti led state of the masses. This question will cut es much figure in the rext presidential battle as that of the tariff. The political pot in Iowa still keeps boiling and sputtering, but the lucky prophet is yet not born who with any degree of certainty can predict who wili be the successful candidates—or even who will receive the nominations and bs the leaders in the affray. Especially is this trne cf the state tickets. On the republican side C 8 Byrkit, the present pronouncedly marked by infrequent occurrence when one of the home club stepped up to the plate and failed to do something that caused wide gashes to marr the comely features of the Frint Hill boll cranks. The features of the game were terrific slugging of the home team, they touching Munger up for seventeen hits, and the field work of the Quincy nine which was remarkably clean, but one error being placed to their credit, and that one partially excusable They were unable to hit Stephen to any damaging extent, their principal slugging being in the fourth inning when a single, a double and triple netted an earned run. The game closed in a perfet hurrah, Stephen showing his admirable skill by striking out the three last men at bat in I, 2, 3 order and sending the crowd home with their tongues wagging in his praise.

A. gymnasium members have signed a huge petition asking that grounds be famished for them for outdoor practice. Tnere are over 1,2001 gymnasium members who pay $15 per year for their privilege. Those who have signed the petition for grounds agr<^ to pay fifty cents a month extra toward jj§e expense of keeping them up. There a rtf'many Y. M. C. A. gymnasiums throughout the country that have had no difficulty in getting good grounds, and in this respect they are far ahead of tho celebrated Brooklyn institution. The Missouri Amateur Athletic club, of St. Louis, Mo., the games of which are bo well thought of by athletes who have taken part in them, has made aiTangements to get grounds with a cinder track for the exclusive use of its members. The club has been handicapped since its organization half a dozen years ago by not having permanent training quarters, but it has steadily grown strong and is now abl® to fulfill one of its main desires.    * There is quite a movement in Denver, Col., to organize an athletic institution which will develop the many amateur athletes there and give them a chance to compare their performances with the best men in the country by attracting the latter there with good games. The atmospheric conditions of the city are thought to be unusually favorable to good athletic performances. T£e well known grounds formerly occupied by the Young America Cricket club at Staunton, Pa., have been hired by the Athletic Club of the Schuylkill nary. The members of this thriving club feel jubilant over the acquisition, for the question of “where can we practice” was becoming a serious matter with them. The plan recently proposed by a number of prominent patrons of amateur sport in Toronto, Ont., for the institution of a large general athletic organization, after the pattern of the Montreal Amateur Athletic association, is meeting with success. Several offers of suitable grounds, have been received, and it is not unlikely that the Toronto university may taka an interest in the scheme and add its support to it. The gymnasium in the new building of the Athletic Club of the Schuylkill navy, Philadelphia, is the longest in America. Its inside length is 146 feet. Mr. James A. St. John, of St. Louis, wha is well known in athletic and aquatic circles throughout America, baa been mad* a non-resident member of tha Boston A l h lido association. W. C.

Ha bald bk official position in tha State* !*' Chicago, May 3.—The rapid advance in tho prices of cereals in thiA market to-day was chit fly due to the unfavor able weather conditions in the northwest There is a lack of moisture for the grow ing crops and low temperature has prevailed. The Tribune’s crop bulletin shows that in North Dakota rains have visited the drought-stricken districts of last season, and have furnished enough moisture to start spring wheat in good shape. The present conditions compare favorably with those of a year ago. The reserves of wheat in farmers’ hands are practically exhausted. The acreage sown to wheat is now reported about the same as lost year. Decrease in barley, IO per cent; increase in flax, IO per cent. Minnesota reports very cold, freezing nights, and some of the largest wheat producing sections in that state still re port no rain. It will be necessary for them to have it before the wheat already in the ground will sprout. In S mthcrn Minnesota the early sown wheat is up about three inches, but the late sown has not yet sprouted owing to the dry condition of the ground. The farmers have commenced plowing corn lands. la the oat belt, comprising northern and central Illinois, northern Indiana, the state of Iowa and Nebraska, the last ten days have been cold, and tsking the arenas a whole, dry. Rains Saturday last, however, were streaky; heavy in Illinois and Indians; some fell in Iowa, but more in Nebraska Since that time the country has experienced a low degree of temperature, and the oat crop has made very slow growth. Southern Nebraska reports a decided improvement since the rains with the oats, but as the land is dry more rain will be needed soon. The oats in eleva tors and in farmers* hands in Nebraska are reported to have been shipped out closely. In southern Iowa the reports about dry weather are the same as come from the northern districts. The oat crop is gen orally up. While the crop is not suffering for rain good rains would be beneficial at the present time. Unless rains come within a week complaints will increase and the crop will lose ground The nights are cold. The best outlook for oats at the present time is in northern and central Illinois They are growing slowly on account of continuance of cold and backward weather. The general situation of the oat crop to day is practically this: The acreage is about the same as that of last season, if anything a little less. The crop has not been put into the ground anything like in as good and thorough a manner as the preceding crop. It has made an uneven stand, owing to the condition of the soil, lack of rain, and low temperature since seeding There seems to be a very general opinion that the yield of oats fur 1869 was over estimated that west of the Mississippi river the per centage of oats to come this way is pr&c ticslly nothing, aud that, dealer* and farmers in Iowa and Illinois have ship ped out the largest proportion of the oat crop. By this time corn planting ought to have been well under way, but there is still a large acreage yet to plow. Ne braska has m«de better progress with plowing aud the preparation of the ground than any state in the northwest About one half to two-thirds of the corn lands in Iowa are now ready for plant ing. The same statement will apply with equal force to Illinois aud Indiana With no storms or rain the coming week ought to see corn-planting very active in the territory just referred to. Even with the mild winter and spring just passed the amount of corn which has been fed, burned and wasted is supris ingly large. Northern Missouri reports a very patis factory condition of her crip Tho fields are now from twelve to fifteen inches No wheat is reported as plowed up An all-day rain Saturday last, also Friday has put the ground in good shape and the wheat is making; rapid growth In the central and southern portions of the state the reports are not as favorable as in the northern portion of the state. Then it was thought that the March freezes had not damaged the wheat at all. Now, however, complaints are quite general of crop damage from 20 to 50 per cent. The old wheat on hand is very nearly all sold. A correspondent who has been all over the state of Kansas makes this report: While there will be a good crop en a large acreage, the stand is very uneven The weather of the first half of May wili cut a very important figure in the cut come of the Kansas crop. With plenty of moisture it may make a fair crop, but if May should be dry the crop would certainly run down. Generally the stocks ho d by mills are small. The spring continues cold and backward in Michigan. Crop prospects equal (hose of last year at this season of the year. Ohio sends varigated reports Central and southern Indiana report that during the last fourteen d iys the winter wheat has hardly held its own. In fact, the damage to the growing crop has no*, been overestimated. The receipts of wheat are practically nothing. Some counties in both central and I on them Illinois report some improvement in the winter wheat situation Taking this important area as a whole, however, the crop has not held its own. PROSPECTS or THE CROPS IN EUROPE. United Kingdom—The autumn wheat looks well The present cold weather will have the effect of improving its beld in the earth. Spring seeding is about done and the early fields present a heal thy appearance. France - Prospects continue very good, spring sowing being done under favorable conditions. Germany—Copious rains since last report have been very beneficial to the con clition of the growing crop. Russia—The condition of the wheat crop on the whole may be considered ss aatiif Actory. The return of the cold weather done has good. Spring operation s are forward and in the south nearly completed. Austria Hungary—Prospects have continued to improve during the week.

The theme of his evenings address led directly among the great~ minds of the age, and brought his audience at different points in the discourse directly against some of the theories they had advanced. The senator did not hesitate to take up and thoroughly test the conclusions they had reached, aud analyzing them to their very foundation, he proved their correctness and exposed their fallacy, and step by step, led the minds of his attentive audience from the truths of creation and the Creator’s wonderful power as there exhibited, down through the varied changes, giving full views, as by sidelights illuminating the lecturer’s pathway, of the continued aud continuing control o* His mighty hand, until at last is re ache d tee irresistible contlision of the truthful and divine revelation He has g;ven us. There was not in all the add-ess, one tedious or ‘ ary ’bit of reasoning. 7hs mind cf a master had planned aud the hand of a master executed the symmetrical and convincing lecture. It was in all its parts a chain of close logic And yet the senator held the attention of his audience with increasing interest to the very close.

Every col-ego in the slate ought to lay before its pupils just such a scholarly, Christian address.
