Washington, May A — Immediately after adjournment of the house this afternoon the republican members assembled to endeavor to ascertain the feeling respecting the proper time to be allowed for debate in the house on the tarifl bill and to reach an understanding that may be adopted as the policy of the party. I lie river and harbor bill managers made a strenuous effort to have that ap- , propitiation bill made a special order for J consideration to conclusion bt;fore the i tariff bill >lje>u!<i be taken up. and Representative Henderson made a statementof the reasons why this should be done. I lie majority of the members could not be made like. his view. for it was decided, 90 to 19, That the tariff bill was a matter of prime importance and should be called ofi Wednesday, ft was agreed that the general debate should go on for four days, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week, with night sessions for speeches. Eight days additional Would then be allowed for the consideration of the bill by paragraphs under the five minute rule. On May til the previous quest iou on the final passage of the bill is to be considered ordered by tin- terms of the special rule to be. adopted. The river and harbor men made another effort, this time seeking to have adopted special rules providing for the consideration of their bill immediately after the final action upon tin1 tariff bill, but were again defeated. There was some. talk about the remaining business before congress and ii became, evident, the general feeling was that a final adjournment could be reached about the, middle of duly. The members of the committee on rivers and harbors felt indignant over the manner in which their bill was sidetracked. They appreciate the fact that unless early action i> taken upon that measure it may lack tin* reasonable time required for due consideration of it by the senate. Yielding to the inevitable, however, they are determined to press its consideration as soon as tile tariff bill is out, of the way aud will antagonize all oilier legislation until the river and harbor hill is disposed of. The Montgomery Bauk Trouble. Nor. KISTO WX, Pa.. May 5.—There was considerable excitement about the Montgomery National bank this forenoon when the doors of the bank were opened.

May 5.—Judge Blodgett today denied temporarily the motion to make Maurice D. O'Connell a party complainant in tim suit of M. K. Jessup, trustee, against the Illinois Central, Cedar Falls and Minnesota and Dubuque and Sioux City railroad companies. The court, however, gave O’Connell leave to renew his motion when the case was reached for hearing. The motion was based on the petition which contains some serious allegations. Jessup some time ago began. in his j capacity as trustee, proceeding to compel I the Sioux City and Illinois Central roads to fulfil their contracts in the leases j made by the Cedar Falls ami Minnesota j road. These contracts provided that t he lessees should keep the road-beds iii repair and plants iii operation. Thesuits are said to have never been proser ated. O’Connell's petition alleges the neglect is caused by Jessup being interested in the Dubuque road, which is affiliated with the Illinois Central. O’Connell is a trustee of the mortgage executed by the Cedar Falls and Minnesota road, and claims to be, ready and anxious to push the. suits, adding that, there, is every reason to oelicve the Illinois Central can be held liable.

The gathering was entirely distinct from the interstate commerce railway association. Every line in the west was represented iii person or by letter of its chief officer. Chairman Midgley’s statement that there could be no legal objection to dividing the earnings after they had been honestly earned by means of reasonable rates, met with unanimous approval, and it was practically decided the outcome of the gathering, if successful, would he that, or a division of the traffic.

The F.lks Restrained. Ni.w York. Alay 3.—Justice Barrett to-day granted a temporary injunction restraining the Elks from holding their annual meeting this year iii Cleveland, Ohio. The organization was formed in New York in 1887, and the balance of power used to be in the east, but now tin* west has the majority. Several years ago the grand lodge went to Philadelphia in spite of great objection on the part of the New York members. Finally an amendment to the constitution was adopted providing that by a majority vote tin' grand lodge meetings might be held outside of this state. This time Cleveland had the plurality but the majority was against it and Treasurer Mendel sued for an injunction, contending a plurality is not a majority. Arguments will b<* heard later. arbitration committees of the new bosses’ association and strikers met this evening and settled the last detail. The journey- J men achieved an almost sleeping vie- I tory. They made concessions on but two j points. The only disappointment was that j the stubbornness of the old masters asse- j cia lion has left its members wholly out j of the final deal.

Chicago, May 5.—According to the predictions of the stock yards coopers there is a probability of their eause being taken up by the English dock laborers and the strike is becoming internation. At a meeting of the Brotherhood of United Labor to-day a committee was appointed to communicate with John Burns, the English labor leader, and request him to order the English longshoremen not to handle any beef or other products shipped by Chicago houses. The committee says Burns has taken great interest in the cause of the men in tin* yards. The men in an open letter say by the terms of their agreement. signed after the great strike of 1881). they are subject to discharge without warning; while in case of quitting they must give two week’s notice; or forfeit ten day’s pay. which the employers withhold. Sometimes they say they are only given two or three day’s work per week, but are compelled to remain or lose their forfeit money, and ar** compelled to work Sundays. If a man is two minutes iute in Th*; morning he is docked an hour’s pay. but if work is finished before, the. close of the day he is not paid for a full day.

Philadelphia, May 3.—Id yte suit of the Kansas City American Association club against John T. Pickett and tin* Players’ club of Philadelphia, Judge Arnold to-day granted an injunction restricting Pickett from playing for any other club than Kansas City during th**, season of 1890. The judge, in his decision, says in part: “When we consider the fart that. the plaintiff, the Kansas City club, paid for the release of Pickett from the St. Paul club in May last 83,300. Alf which sum xSOO was paid to Pickett and a salary of 8340 a month, which was regularly and fully paid to him. although he was sick and unable to play nearly half the season of 1889. his ingratitude is shown to be equal to his bod faith. While \v*‘ - annot punish him for his ingratitude., we cannot restrain him from deriving any benefit from his breach of contract.” In regard to Pickett’s plea that the Kansas City club has transferred its membership from the American association to the Western association and that it has released tithers of its players, the court says hi* has estopped himself from complaining as he freely acquiesced in these arrangements.

He would also recommend such action on the part of tin* legislator as is likely to bring the subject to the attention of congress, with a view of securing ultimately a similar amendment to the federal constitution. “This” says the governor, “would compel contests to be decided upon their merits and relievo the legislative bodies from a standing temptation to do injustice.” Seriously Injured.

May 5.—Considerable excitement is caused here in political circles by the statement that members of the last city council received extra ami illegal compensation to the amount of four thousand three hundred dollars, j Under a law passed in 18S8 the salary, t formerly §300. was fixed at 8*250 permem-; ber and s40 as a member of iii** board of health and they drew additional pay for committee work aggregating often ov«*r nine hundred dollars a year. Since th** creation of the board of public, works this “extra committee work” was to have been done away with. The books ami accounts on their face were all straight and right and only the exit of the old members and th** advent of the new has brought out the matter of allowing fictitious claims and then paying this money to aldermen. A full investigation will no doubt be ordered:    Several of the alderman claim they did not know I of the fictitious claims, but were handed money as extra pay. They express a willingness to return the same, others are as yet strangely silent.
