ORIGINAL PACKAGE BILL. Wilson’s Liquor Transportation Measure Passes the Senate. Much Discussion and Sarcasm Indulged in Regarding it* Pro vision—The River and Harbor Bill — General Washington News. Washington, May 20.—In the senate Stewart, rising to a question of personal privilege, had read an article from a local paper, containing a statement by Major Powell, director of the geological survey, in reference to Stewart’s recent resolution, in which Powell spoke of the movement as instigated by landsharks and speculators for the purpose of gobbling up irrigable lands and establishing a “sort of hydraulic feudal system.” Stewart sketched an outline of what had been done in the work of stimulating Irrigation in the far west recently and by way of appropriations. Powell, he said, had used more than half of the appropriation in vast and expensive surveys of no practical use for the object in view and intimated that Powell had enormous power in both houses from his giving employment t o a lot of young men, sons and relatives of members of congress and that he kept an enormous lobby in Washington to control the action of congress. The bureau of geology and mineralogy was nothing, Stewart said, blit a mass of humbug and foolishness. Mr. Gorman defended Major Powell as a valuable public officer who discharged his duty faithfully. Mr. Teller int rod need a joint resolution setting fort ii that it is the determined policy of the United States government to use botlt gold and silver as full legal tender money under the rates now existing in the United States or which may hereafter be established by the United States alone or acting in accord with other nations. It was laid on the table and ordered printed. The imported liquor bill was then taken up, the question being on the following substitute offered by Quay to the substitute from the judiciary committee: “That fermented, distilled or other intoxicating liquors, transferred as an article of commerce or brought into any state or territory from a point or place outside of such state or territory for the use, consumption or sale therein, shall not be exempt, nor shall the owner or person in possession thereof be exempt from the operation of the laws, regulations, control, policy or taxing powers of such state or territory affecting or applicable to all other like property by reasons of such liquors being in the original package of importation or transportation as subjects of interstate or foreign commerce.” Mr. Gray’s amendment was agreed to —yeas 20, nays 20. The nays were Allen, Allison, Hates, Blair, Blodgett, Coke, Dawes, Edmunds, Eustis, George, Hoar, Ingalls, Moody, Morrill, Paddock, Plum, Power, Sherman, Vest, Wilson of Iowa. Mr. Vest moved to amend the substitute by making it apply to fresh beef, veal, mutton, lamb and pork, and argued that if the bill was to become a law it should not be confined to intoxicating liquors. This was the first time he knew of the supreme court being a suggester of remedies. The proposed law would produce chaos. But if lie were wrong in his position and the friends of the bill were right, then he wanted to give the cattle-raisers of the west the same privileges granted tin* Iowa legislature in regard to the exclusion of alcoholic stimulants. lie had served on the senate committee in relation lo the beef business ami found an alarming state of tilings in the inspection of beef cattle. 'rite vote on Vest's amendment was: yeas Ti, nays 32, tin1 yeas being Call, Morgan, Payne, Stewart aud Vest. Mr. Wilson, of Iowa, tittered a substitute for Cray's amendment providing that liquors transported into any state or territory for use, consumption or storage shall on their arrival be subject to tin1 operation aud effect of the laws of such stall* or territory enacted in exorcise of its police power and shall not be exempt therefrom by reason of their being introduced in original packages. items, thirteen the of most important being passed without action, the noon hour arrived and the question of further meetings was broached. Senator Sherman suggested daily sessions of ten hours each in order to hurry matters through. This met wfith opposition from both sides. Senator Hiscock moved a subcommittee be appointed to prepare such a schedule as would be advocated by the party on the floor of the senate, that each side submit its schedule to the other side as soon as prepared. Adopted, no change being made as to the question of giving oral hearings. The changes made in the chemical tchedule to-day are all reductions and were proposed by the republicans. None of them were of any significance. The committee will grant a hearing to representatives of importers Tuesday. The democratic members will not formulate a bill, but will express their views in a report. GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS. A Proposed Tariff Bill Amendment.

Pleasant, May 29.—A disastrous fire occurred in this city this afternoon between one and two o’clock, at which also occurred the death of one of our oldest citizens, which has greatly shocked the community. The MtJ Pleasant scale works, near Adams street, just north of the railroad, was found to be on fire and before water could be procured. it being very dry. and with a strong wind, the eastern building was consumed with much of its contents. The building burnt was not very valuable, but there was no insurance and it is a total loss. Messrs. Steele and Johnson, comprising the Mt. Pleasant Manufacturing company, lost a large part of their stock of machinery and tools valued* at 86,000; insured for 82,000. Captain J. T. Drummond lias a shop and office in one corner of the building. where he made models and executed applications for patents. He was at his desk when Mr. Johnson came in and notified him the building was on fire. Instead of removing his effects, he was found soon after in the same place, apparently in much suffering; he was carried out to Bowman Kauffman’s office, across the street, and in a few minutes w'as dead. Cerebral apoplexy, probably induced by the excitement, seemed to be tile immediate cause of his death. He was over sixty years of age, an old resident of this county, was in the Mexican war and was captain of Company K in the Fourth Iowa cavalry. His remains will be buried at Hickory Grove, four miles north of town, on Sunday, the G. A. R. post of which he was a member, attending in a body. A MARSHALLTOWN FAMILY’S FORTUNE. question.

THE HOUSE. Deserted by His Followers Ile Abandons All Political Aspirations. London, May 29.—General Boulanger has abandoned all of his political aspirations. His last hope was extinguished by tilt' result of the second ballots for the municipal council of Paris at the election held three weeks ago, when his adherents were successful iii but two arondissments out of eighty. The erstwhile doughty general has realized at last that instead of a dictator lie is now but a fragment of a lost cause. There is no hope for him iii the future. All his leading lieutenants have abandoned him to his fate, and even Advocate Naquet, probably the foremost lawyer in France to-day, who went into the Boulanger campaign with more than his characteristic zeal and enthusiasm and who has contributed and raised thousands of Danes for the various Boulanger campaigns of the last two years, has notified the exile that the jig is up, that he (Boulanger) is a dead duck so far as French politics are concerned and that Boulangerism is no longer an issue. Boulangers fall has in a measure been as great as that of Bismarck. Less than liftoon months ago he was triumphantly elected'for Paris and the strength and enthusiasm of his following threatened the continued oxisteneeof the republic. To-day ho is an exile, without means of his own and actually dependent for existence upon the good nature of a certain Ic aminic thane, whose interest in his orpines thus far has been strongly Uncured with the prospect that his political success would enable her o east an anchor to windward. Whether sin' will continue to favor tim with her smiles and her bank ae* •ount remains to beseen, lf she does not only two things are in sight—poverty md penury on this side of tin* channel, a irison on tin* other. No wonder then hat tin' most recent letters from him, who a year ago imagined that the “finest •onsulship” was within his grasp, are tinged with a melancholy and sadness that indicates his belief that the world has no future for him. Floods ut Havana. Havana, May 29. All telegraphic communications and nearly all railway traffic is interrupted by the floods resulting from excessive rains. The weather eontinties threatening. Tile villages of Calabasor, ('barrera, Rineon. San Antonio and Puentas Grandes are partly inundated. A Large Inheritance Awaiting tilt* Order of Mrs. Jeta. Marshalltown, May 29.—It has just been discovered that a fortune in Germany is awaiting a former resident of this city, whose present whereabouts is unknown. Thirteen years ago Mr. and Mrs. John Jeta emigrated to Marshalltown from the Fatherland. Mrs. Jeta’s maiden name was Susanna Dinkenscheid, her parents being wealthy residents of Gan Algesheim, a small inland village in Germany. Several years later Mrs. Jeta learned that her parentis were both dead. Moses Stern, a Hebrew friend of the Jetas’ of this city, wrote to Germany for them to learn about the disposal of the fortune. No reply was ever received until last Tuesday, when a letter came informing him that his note of inquiry had been mislaid and had just been discovered, after lying among some old papers for years. The letter informed Mr. Stern that quite an estate, with a considerable amount of accrued interest, was awaiting the order of Mrs. Jeta. But in the meantime the family has moved away from here to parts unknown, and it is questionable whether they will ever learn of the legacy that is lying subject to their order across the brine. ANXIOUS TO ENTER A MONASTERY. A Number of Public Building Bills Favorably Considered. Washington May 30.—Tin*committee on public lands reported back to the senate tin* bill with amendments for general forfeiture of land grants: ordered printed and recommitted.

There was a lively tilt on the question of public building hills brought out by the bill for a public building at Bar Harbor, Maine, $75,000. Mills had asked what the direction of the committee was, and Milliken replied two republican bill would be taken up and then one democratic bill. Mr. Mills thought this unfair and that the committee should alternate between the two sides. Mr. Allen declared that the whole sy tem was vicious and that politics shoulci have nothing to do with the question. The committee finally rose, the agricultural bill was reported and the house adjourned until Monday. THE TARIFF BILL. The Senate Finance Committee Considering the Measure.

Since that time he has gone all over the country hunting for them, and lias spent his entire fortune in making what he was many times almost induced to give up as a fruitless search. At last he found one of his children in Moline, Kansas, and the other in Springfield. Illinois.

They spent the night in the jail and in the morning were furnished sufficient money to take them to their old home iii Audubon county. The vast auditorium of the First M. E. church was crowded to its utmost seating capacity last Sunday evening upon the occasion of the union memorial services. Many, unable to obtain seats, remained standing or went away. It is estimated that from eighteen hundred to two thousand people were present, including the G. A. R. post, the Womans' Relief Corps, the Sons of Veterans, and Company H. of the Iowa National Guards. The services were described in The Hawk-Eye of last Tuesday, but no adequate idea could be given of the eloquence of the speaker of the evening and the vigor and thoughtful tone of his address. At our solicitation, Rev. Mr. Rogers has kindly furnished us with the manuscript of his sermon, that we may gratify the general desire of our readers to have it as a permanent record of the occasion and as a worthy tribute to the veteran soldiers. The war closed, truth lived, right was right and did prevail, peace waved her flag of virgin white, plenty shook her banners out—every port was opened wide and all oppressed of all the world were invited to enter in aud be at rest and build a home and live for good and do for God. Liberty seized the trump and blew a blast so loud that the world heard her voice, and. listening, they heard her invitation to come across the seas and live with her. and she'd lead them in ways of peace where no tyrant's yoke could gall, and no titled fiend could kill. The invitation was general and it was cordial, and many were the hearts which leaped for joy as they left the old world for the new—they left the narrow prison of the east fur the broad commons of the west— thus thousands and tens of thousands swarmed our shores—they came and coming, stayed—the nation grew. the nation prospered.

Notice to My Customers aud Others. Commencing Saturday, May 24,1 will loose at 3 o’clock, Conrad Lutz. liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free.” I have been asked manx* times to preach a sermon from that text wherein Paul tells the Epehsians to "put on the whole armor of God.” but I always thought myself too little to handle a subject so great: a theme so heavy demands a chivalric champion. As there are subjects which make a man feel his insignificance, so there are occasions when only the great should speak; occasions when common men grow more common still, as they feel their littleness: when common men feel their lack of power to interest. Such an occasion is the    present and such    is the    feeling which the speaker has. Loving my country as I do. interested in all that she    has been, and is,    and is    to    be. yet. having done nothing to establish her primacy among the nations, but standing in the presence of a hundred men who took their lives in their hands and presented them as a free will offering to my motherland, is it any wonder that I should feel my own littleness, my own insignificance, my utter    inability    to    say one    word of interest    or express    one thought which can instruct? But something must be said and the task is mine, and let me say right here on the threshold of this service that I pray the great, good God to hand out. an especial blessing to all the bold, brave veterans who are with us to-night. Next Friday is "Memorial Day.” At each recurring 30th of May as the nation pays tribute to her soldier lead, the thoughtful citizen is wont to open the door and wander, in thought, through the corridors of the past. He mingles with that band of English Christians who in 1603 gathered on the dreary common between Hull and Grimsby, in Yorkshire. Old men were there who had suffered heroically for Jcmis" sake—truth and conscience were to the women dearer far than native land, and many a youth, full of the zeal and fire of early manhood, strode through the crowd, resolved to adopt the alternative of expatriation, and to count neither country, nor fortune, nor friends so dear as the exercise of his faith and his religion. Later on, we stand at the water’s edge at Delft Haven amid the congregation of old men lim! women and children and view the parting scene between those faithful followers of a still more faithful Master. The Mayflower and the Speedwell at anchor lay awaiting the precious cargo—th*' limited capacity of tin* two ships forbid the em barkation of very many of the group— the majority must stay behind while the few set sail for the Land of the West— the last goodbyes are said—tears flow and fathers choke and mothers sob and children weep to see the others weep— the leader in the way of truth, the good, devout Robinson delivers his last charge to those about to go—he would like to go himself but he yields his place to another and a younger man. “Brethren,” he said, “we are now quickly to part from one another, and whether I may live to -see your face on earth again, the God of heaven only knows: but I charge you before God and His blessed angels that you follow me no further than you have seen me follow the Lord Jesus Christ,*’ and as the vessels leave the shore we look back and see the venerable, Godly man kneeling at the waters edge, and with bared head and folded hands and heart uplifted to the very mercy scat praying the God of wind and storm to spare his scattered flock and to bless them in the unknown land across the sea. The bold adventurers pursue their way —tho Mayflower with her one hundred heroes for the right plows the mighty seas for many weeks, when, at last, a world is seen—the continent of the west breaks upon their gaze and we feel with them the thrill of discovery and of joy. and with them we thank the God of all that they readied the shore dry-shod, where they were free to worship God in spirit and in truth. Brave men where they and good who touched our shores those long years ago—true women, loyal to the right, loyal to .God. makers of homes, rearers of families, fellers of forests and founders of states. Thank God for the foundation stones of our republic—they were bowlders of right embedded in the heart of truth’s everlasting hills—they were laid to stay, and if we but build as we were taught, fearing God, trusting God. worshiping God. America shall stand until God's time-piece, the glorious sun. shall mark the time no more and the earth shall melt with fervent heat. I have not the time to tell how. lured by hope and driven by despair, the people of the old world swarmed the shores of the new. nor must I speak of their dream of independence and how the yoke of distant Kings grew heavy and how they chafed and fretted and one day resolved that free they'd be and independent or th?*y'd die. Then came suffering, privation, punishment, war and had I the gift of eloquence I'd take you from Lexington tp X’alley Forge, where hope almost died, and I'd go with you to Yorktown where the sun came up without a cloud and went down on America free, forever free from the despot's yoke of iron. XX’hen great orators speak to their countrymen of the glory of the revolution, their hearts burn. their words glow and glitter and throw off sparks, and all who hear catch the fervor and bless God for the men of brawn and the men of brain—the soldiers and the statesmen—the heroes of the sword and pen. who fought so bravely and thought so clearly during those seven sacred years of war. XX’hen little Holland, three centuries ago. stood for Protestantism and freedom against the millions of the papal power. and in the heat of the struggle the young republic seemed about to be overwhelmed. William. Prince of Orange, the champion of the righteous cause, received a letter from one of his generals asking him if he had effected a treaty with France or England securing their aid. William replied, “Before I undertook the cause of the oppressed Christians in these provinces, I made a close alliance with the King of kings, and I doubt not He will give us the victory,” and as with William,Prince of Orange, three centuries ago, so with the leading spirits of the revolution two hundred years later—they knew no fear save the fear of God, and they made a -close alliance with the King of kings and doubted not that he would give them the victory”—they trusted God. they kept their powder dry, with sturdy blows they battered down the wrong, right prevailed, victory perched upon their banners, “Freedom dried her tears, she smiled and was content.” was pretending to be what she was not iii fact. The fathers had proclaimed in language strong and lofty that "all men are created free and equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” XXV said to the world:    "See    us. behold us. home of refuge, land of the free”; but every slave within our borders said "it is not so”—every mother Torn from her babe at the auction ulock said "it is not sn. that's a lie.” The majority of men thought that slavery was right. so strongly was the wrong buttressed and bastioned within the battlements of public opinion. Some said "it's a pimple, let’s poultice it with compromis* Richmond, Va., May29.—The weather here is clear and balmy and beautiful. Since early morning the streets have been crowded with people from out of town and military organizations which are to take part in the procession. As the various commands reach their starting points with some familiar officer at their head they are greeted with cheers. Chief Marshal General Ritz Hugh Lee. Generals Early. Johnston and Longs!reet received ovations as they moved from place to place. Shortly after 12 o’clock until in j the procession moved to the monument, around which the different organizations were grouped. As soon as the distinguished guests were all seated. Governor McKinney, president of the Lee Monument association, arose and called the assemblage to order. After a brief prayer Governor McKinney introduced General Early as chairman of the meeting. He was greeted with prolonged applause and cheering. He made no speech but in a few well chosen vvord> introduced tin' orator of tile occasion. Colonel Archer Anderson. Colonel Anderson's address was an eloquent one. in which, while abating not a jot of love and admiration for Le.-, was so couched in words as not to jar i pen the sensibilities of tin* most ardent unionist. ll** began with tin* statement that a people was known by its monuments, and by that record tin* world always gave its most devoted admiration to warriors. He sketched, in a masterly way. the transcendant qualities necessarily united in til*' great general.

It was a singular felicity of X’irgi clearer vision and of greater love said "it is a cancer, it is misery, it U death.** and th*' great God looked on and said "it shall not he, I'll cut the cancer out and I'M bid the nation live.” You remember how black the cloud grew and how heavy and you remember how at last it burst. The shot was fired at Sumter, but Sumter stood for liberty— no ear was deaf—a million men resolved that right should live and wrong should bite th*' dust. Freedom made a vow (and high heaven heard and recorded it with joy) that slavery should die, while slavery held aloft th*' knife to plunge at freedom's heart; blit you, brave men, and your fathers, and your husbands, your brothers, and your sons bared their breasts and took the blow instead—they died, but freedom lived and lives to-day, while slavery is dead and never shall I iv*' again within the far-extending borders of this fairest nation which the sun visits iii his daily course. Oh how bold they were—how brave they were and how gallant, those men who left home and friends and all their peaceful ways, and breasted on a thousand fields the iron hail of war! Oh. how thick the bullets flew- in those terrible days and how’ far! The boy was killed at the front, and father and mother and sister and brother were sorely wounded at the hillside home so far away. Hearts throbbed out their treasures for God and native land as though it had been sentiment and not life. Our debt of gratitude to the men who fought is very great, we can never pay it—words may sound, hut their sound is barren—hearts may feel hut can't express the debt they owe to the brave defenders of the republic. Many of the gallant boys, oh, how many, who fought so nobly, died a** heroes do upon the field, they said “good-by** to comrades, but mother was not there to soothe the pains —sister was far away and could not catch the last words from dear brother's lips. Oh, how many of the wounded boys could have said as one did say: “On the field of the battle, mother. All tin' night alone I lay; Angels watching o’er me, mother, Till the breaking of the day. I lay thinking of you, motlier. And the loving ones at horn*'. Till to our dear cottage, mother, Boy again, I seem to roam.

And thus he died and thus many a brave boy died and left a place which all this earth can never fill—hearts there are, and homes there are to which each soldier boy was every thing: then “Give the dead Tidier room. But oh, seal not is tomb. For he’ll fall into rank.* if you utter Dis nam*-. Sleep on. boy in blue. And dream the dream through. Good night to thy form, but good morn to thy fame.” So. with each recurring year the nation bows her head in reverence while loving hands bestrew the graves of these gallant defenders of the right, with well-twined garlands of bud and blossom, and in the sflence and the hush of the “city of the dead” we can feel a gratitude which we can never tell.. In September, 'twas the 6th. of '62. I saw a thousand stalwart men march thro' the main street of my native village bound for war. In June of *65 the living ones returned. Their journey up that beautiful Chenango valley in the old Empire state was one continual ovation. A mile below our village the brave boys leaped from the carriages and fell into line: thousands of sparrows had come from far and near to catch a glimpse of those eagles from the front: a long procession was formed:    brass    band, com mittee of arrangements, ladies committee in carriages, tire department, etc., etc. These all passed and were met by cordial silence: then came the war marked veterans, they went away many, they came back much, so rich was every man in loyalty of heart: several flags had passed as gay as wings of butterfly here was one poor rag before that was tattered by the battle and torn by the tempests of war: the dyes of the dyer were dim but the death of its defenders had made those tints sublime: my heart warmed to that old flag as it never could warm to the new. What did I care for tho gallant beaus who carried button-hole boquets? XVhat attractions for me had all the pomp and pageantry of the home guard in their glittering snits, Vhen right here before my eyes were these dear old smoky fellows. war-stained, marked, maimed and torn, whose old likeness you could not see because of sears and seams that told of heroic daring and patriotic suffering. I have a friendly salute for all, bat the brave defender of the flag I hail as soldier, patriot, friend and savior of the nation and I pray God to lead all the boys in blue by stately marches into all the glories of the shining shore.
