WILL VOTE TO DAY. The House Will Consider the Silver Bill Immediately. Mb. McKinley’s Resolution—The .Senate Considers the Postoffice Appropriation Bill—The Original Package Bill—Capital News. Washington, June 24.—In the house, after the journal was read, Springer, of Illinois, called attention to the fact that the legislative appropriation bill as amended by the senate had been referred to the appropriations committee without reference to the house. The speaker said the usual custom had been followed, that the record duly informed the house of the reference and he therefore declared the journal approved. Mr. Butterwort!} presented the report of the appropriations committee upon the senate amendments to the legislative bill. The bill was agreed to and a conference ordered. A conference was ordered on the bill to increase the number of managers of national homes for volunteer soldiers. The senate amendment to the house bill to extend the time for the payment of purchase money for lands of the Omaha Indians in Nebraska was agreed to. Mr. McKinley, from the committee on rules, reported the following: Resolved, That immediately after the passage, of this resolution tin* house shall proceed to consider house bill No. 5,381 (the silver bill), w ith the senate amendments, and at two o’clock Wednesday, June 25th, the previous questions shall be considered as ordered. Mr. McKinley demanded the previous question on the adoption of resolution, which was ordered and twenty minutes’ debate was allowed on either side. There was considerable opposit ion shown by the democrats. Mr. McKinley said the purpose of the resolution was to secure definite and speedy action upon the subject of si I -ver. It was results the republican side was after, said Mr. McKinley, and politics the democratic side was after. The house had passed the period of silver manipulation. It was face to face with practical question whether we were to have free and unlimited coinage of tile world’s silver product or whether we would legislate to absorb every ounce of silver produced in the United States and make it part of our monetary system. On motion of McKinley, the special rule was adopted without division. Mr. Conger, chairman of the coinage, committee, presented a report of the committee. It, simply recommended that the house non-concur in each and all the senate amendments to the silver bill aud requests a conference. Mr. Bland, of Missouri, moved that the house concur in the. senate amendments. With those motions debate began.    Conger action of his committee, reported a wise and pending the defended the saying it had conservative measure. If the bullion redemption feature was stricken out. then the government was placed in the position of buying gold and silver bullion and paying for it in silver coin—• for that was the only money provided for such purposes. Now, free coinage meant a profit of -SI3,000,000 a year to the bullion owners of this country. It meant we should say to the world:    “Bring us your silver and we will give you thirty per cent more for it than you can get anywhere else.” Mr. Conger held, under the terms of the house bill, silver and gold would be equally within the reach of all, while if the senate bill was passed, the country would lie driven to a silver basis. Ho hoped, under the terms of the house bill, that silver would appreciate; under the terms of the senate bill he believed it would not. He wished his colleagues could understand the pressure that had been brought to bear by the limn interested in silver speculation to secure silver legislation. Not only have paid lobbyists been plying their vocation here, but various other means have been resorted to by the silver speculators to procure legislation. Bool after pool had been organized in t his city to speculate in silver. Money had been deposited in the banks in this country by hundreds and hundreds of thousands ready to purchase bullion as soon as this legislation should pass. These people were opposed to t he house bill. Why? that bill passed they to the market valm lf the free coinage gress of the vain* Simply because if would have to trust of their products, bill passed the contin* United States it would fix at 30 per cent above what si 1- passage it opened the speculation. One ten millions in ver was worth. He had been invited time and again to join the silver pools, but as long as lie had a seat here, his voice should be raised in behalf of the people of this country, for the laboring man, bu* the savings bank depositors and for the crippled and starved soldiers of the country. In conclusion. Conger said if t here was no silver legislation the responsibility would rest upon the advocates of free coinage bemuse of the delay up to this time rested largely upon their shoulders. Mr. Bland knew nothing about any lobby. He had not seen it and had never heard of it. lf speculative pools had been organized they might have been founded upon the belief in the of tin' house bill, because door * to the widest day there might be the treasury and the next not a million. He criticized tho house bill in other respects. He was for free coinage, but if he could not get it, he would vote for this bill if he could get two amendments, one providing that the notes outstanding should not be limited to the cost price of bullion, and another that the notes should be redeemed in coin. This latter was import ant in order that coinage should he kept up and bullion not stored in the treasury simply as a commodity. Mr. Townsend, of Colorado, said free coinage was the only way to secure a stable financial system; but if he could not get free coinage he would vote for this four and one-half million bill as offering a considerable improvement on the present conditions. Tho question was'further debated by Messrs. Kerr, Post, Hill. Kelly, Strobic. Wheeler, and Bartine, the latter stating he felt it his duty to vote for any measure that pointed in the direction of free silver. Adjourned. ing the country into twenty-six districts, which a chief detective for each district and with a corps of detectives to be used for visiting localities and getting “in touch with people.” He (Gorman) did not want any postmaster general to have a force under him whose avowed duty it might be to go around among people and get “in touch with them.” Mr. Plumb also spoke against the amendment, but it was agreed to as were the other committee amendments and the bill passed. The senate proceeded to the consideration of the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill. The principal amendments recommended by the committee have already been given in these dispatch} Mr. Sherman, from the committee on foreign relations moved to increase the compensation of the minister to Turkey from $7,500 to 810,000: agreed to. Mr. Edmunds moved to amend the amendment relating to the work of the international American conference by inserting the words “information in respect of,” so as to make it read: “For the payment of the share of the United States of a preliminary survey, for information in respect of an inter-continental rail way,865,(XX),’’and said he made the motion so as to guard against any moral or implied engagements to go on with the inter-continental railway; agreed to. All the amendments having been agreed to, the bill was passed. The senate bills to adopt regulations preventing,and in relation to,collisions at sea, were passed. (These bills embody the rules agreed to by the international mariton conference.) The conference report of the pension appropriation bill was presented. The senate receded from the only amendment not arranged in the conference—that for the appointment of two additional pension agents; and the pension appropriation bill now goes to the president. The senate then adjourned. GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS. The Senate Silver Bill Amendments to be Non-Concurred In. Washington, June 24.—The house committee on coinage weights and measures to-day decided by a vote of 6 to 5 to recommend non-concurrence in the senate amendments to the silver bill and to ask the house to order a conference. The Original Package Bill, Washington, June 24.—The house committee on judiciary has decided to report to the house instead of the senate “original package” bill a substitute agreed on this morning. It is broader iii scope than the senate bill, inasmuch as its provisions apply to all articles of interstate commerce, whereas the senate bill only applies to intoxicating liquors. A Substitute for Vest’s Meat, Inspection Bill. Washington, June 24.—The senate committee on agricultural and forestry to-day instructed Chairman Baddock to report favorably (with amendments) the substitute proposed by him for Vest’s Gill to provide for the inspection of cattle and beef products intended for exports.

FURIOUS WIND HAIL AND RAIN STORM. Serious Damage Done iii the Vicinity of Cardon, Iowa—Losses Elsewhere. Bauson, June 24.—The worst storm since the cyclone of I SSP swept this vicinity Sunday night. Many building were destroyed or greatly damaged. Stock was killed by lightning and being driven into wire fences. Crops were beaten into the ground by hail and washed out by the four inches of water that fell during the storm. The damage to property will amount to many thousands of dollars. Violent Rains at La Crosse, Wisconsin. La Crosse, June 24.—A violent rain last night washed out highways, bridges and railroads in every direction. Trains are late and many have been suspended. THE TRAMP AND THE TRAIN. SERIOUS RAILROAD STRIKE. A Sore-Footed Fedestrain Takes a Free Ride on a Locomotive. Eaui.villi:. June 24.—While the men on a work train of the Milwaukee road were eating breakfast at a boarding house near the railroad track, a tramp entered the cab of a locomotive, attached to the work train standing,, at the depot, and opened the throttle. The train pulled out at lightning speed, and although the railroad men saw it start they were unable to overtake it. Ten minutes later the engine of an incoming freight train was detailed and pursuit was made. The work train was found standing on the track seven miles west, but no trace was discovered of the thief. Steam was in the engine, but the tramp was evidently afraid to run by the town and so deserted his stolen property. SUNDAY SCHOOL WORK. THE SENATE. Over a Thousand Men Go Out at Chicago. The Conductors, Switchmen and Brakemen of the Illinois Central Railroad Quit Work Because Two Old Employes are Discharged. The Postoffice Appropriation Bill I'Rider Consideration. Washington, June 24.—Call gave notice that he would to-morrow call up the adverse report from the committee on foreign relations on the resolution introduced by him relating to the independence of Cuba, for the purpose of submitting some remarks. The conference report on tho naval appropriation bill was presented and agreed to. The senate theu proceeded to the consideration of the postoffice appropriation bill. In relation to the first amendment of the committee, increasing the item for mail depredations, postoffice inspectors’ fees and expenses from 8250,000 to 8300, OOO, Gorman spoke in condemnation of the postmaster general’s plan for having additional detectives to inquire into such mail matters as whether the patrons of the postoffice are satisfied the business •of the postoffice is well performed; whether the postmaster em ploys members of his own family; whether intoxicating liquors are sold in the postoffice building and other matters He objected to the proposition of the postmaster general to enter upon a system such as he suggested in his statement before the house committee, divd- Tlie International Convention in Session at Pittsburg. Pittsburg, June 24.—Tho sixth international Sunday school convention was called to order this morning by William Reynolds, of Peoria, Illinois. The ses sion opened with devotional exercises and was followed by routine business. There are thirteen hundred delegates present from all parts of North America representing 112,897 Sunday schools with 1,178,301 teachers and 9,149,997 scholars. Every Evangelical Protestant denomination in North America is represented. The objects of the convention are the promotion and increase of Sunday school work, devising new and better methods of teaching children and uniformity of lessons. Chicago, June 24.—A thousand conductors, sw.tchmen and brakemen in the Chicago freight yards of the Illinois Central Railroad went out on a strike yesterday afternoon. The immediate cause was the resignation of Trainmaster Berry and his assistant, Irwin E. Pushie. A rumor went the round of the freight yard yesterday morning that it was the intention of Superintendent E. G. Russell to dismiss Berry and Pushie. As the trainmaster and his assistant knew of no reason for their dismissal they took the bull by the horns and went to the superintendent’s office to learn the truth of the rumor. They also formulated a grievance which has been a sore point for some months with the brakesmen and conductors. Under the old rules a freight train arriving in the depot first was always allowed to depart before the others, but Mr. Russell inaugurated a new rule, by which certain men were allowed to run their trains before others, despite the fact that they had arrived at the depot much later. Trainmaster Berry inquired whether tho superintendent would insist on the new rule. He answered “Yes!” and being questioned further as to their intended dismissal, again replied in the affirmative. Berry and Pushie then and there handed in their resignation. To-day the strike has become a serious one and threatens to blockade the Illinois Central's entire business. The suburban trainmen struck this morning after the early trains had come in and there are now about thirteen hundred men idle. An order was issued by the strikers at meeting held to-day extending the strike over the whole of the Illinois Central road in Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa. The men insisted on the dismissal of Superintendent Russell whose jurisdiction extended over the lines in I Iii noise, Iowa and Wisconsin. They claim he persecuted many of the men and they have many grievances against him. The trouble culminated yesterday afternoon when the trainmasters were discharged by him as mentioned iii these dispatches last night. The men did not wish to be held responsible for interfering with the United States mail and express matters, and consequently attached the mail and xpress cars to the engine of the New Orleans mail train to-day. The general superintendent, however, refused to start the mail train until the passenger coaches were attached and the strikers warned him that he detained the mail and ex press at tho company’s risk. General Manager Beck and General Superintendent Sullivan had a conference with the strikers this afternoon. Tile men stated their determination not to return to work until Superintendent Russell was dismissed. The only conclusion arrived at was that the company would resist the men’s demands. They now await overtures and, it is said, unless tho men return to work to-morrow the company will proceed to hire new hands. The tie-up will cause serious trouble, not only locally, but throughout a large section of country both west and south. The suburban traffic of the road is enormous. The largest in the United States. The trains run in and out of the city every few minutes from live o’clock iii the morning until midnight and are crowded. All these people, many of whom live beyond tho cable car limits, are now thrown upon their own resources for transportation. But it is not this that will trouble the commercial world. To stop the freight traffic of the Illinois Central means to preveiit thousands of people in northern Iowa. southern Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana from getting their products to market. The yards in this city are already filled with freight cars and the stalling of trains now in transit will jam every transfer track touched by the road. Tile Strike Spreading. Cairo, 111., June 24.—The strike on the Illinois Central has extended this far south. Only passenger trains left to-day and perishable fruit trains have been sent north by the Big Four road. It is expected all the yard men will go out lore and at Mounds Junction to-inor row. A GOOD BEAR STORY. people see it—and after all it is the people who should act—it is a monster of immorality and infamy which should be suppressed, as darkening the fair escutcheon of an honorable state. This is one view and a correct one. The same people (body politic) however, see another thing—one which they would gladly rectify as would they the matter of licensed gambling, i c the great and uncontrollable dishonesty and fraud in politics. The continuance of the first (the lottery company) must attend the continuance of the second (political corruption) as a safeguard to the people against increase of taxation by a corrupt city and state government Should the support of the lottery company be withdrawn (added to the additional millions which that company propose to bind themselves to give—if rechartered) from the state, there will be a vacuum created in the amounts received for public expenses, and state charitable expenses, of something near 8100,000 yearly. This would necessitate a marked increase in the percentage of taxation—an increase which the majority of tax payers are not prepared to stand. Either this or a great and grave delinquency in the payment of the state’s annual expenses or both. This is a fact. That the amount of revenues derived at the present time from and by the present rate of taxation is inadequate to meet the state's expenses I do not—nor do many others—believe; we believe the revenues thus accumulated are sufficient, but, with due respect to those in authority, we do not believe the government an honest one—as. in one particular instance (“Burke's Haul") we have found it otherwise, The revenues then, not being sufficient to supply the demands of the (we will say “salary grabbers”) parties who have the handling and expending of our state monies, and at the same time to pay the state’s yearly expenses, we must have one of the three either an honest and fair government, which will pay (through its officers) the monies received by assessment for state expenses, out for the same, and only use said amount for such purpose, or. we must have a concern like the lottery company, which with little expense makes great profits and enables it to furnish money to pay the expenses for which the money collected to pay same has been illegally and unjustly appro-propriated, or we must submit to a high and an unjulP^laxation to supply the money necessary to meet state expenses and at the same time supply the unjust, avaricious and dishonest greed of those politician’s whom, so far, we are unable to rid ourselves of. This is the true sense of the matter, the existent state of affairs, and we naturally choose the middle course as least expensive to ourselves and at the same time most pregnant with good to all and easiest pursued; and, indeed, just now fairly iii keeping with our present state government (so far as the general personnel is concerned), and why not? Again; we have a democratic government (?) Strange (?) indeed that such should be the case under a good (?) democratic (?) government, isn’t it? This question is growing iii magnitude, and should it be put before the people as a proposed amendment to the constitution of the state, there is every reason to believe, for the reasons given, that it wiil again be “grafted into the constitution of the state.” Yet, this is a democratic state, far superior to republican principles, stil I following iii their (the republican’s) footsteps, and only in the worst features of I heir reign! Strange, is it ? No; ’tis but the natural corruption which is, like a cancer, cating its way into a republican government, under the name of democracy and reform principles. Our best days—those of the republican regime, though perhaps in some ways faulty—are gone, and we are like a stranded vessel in a storm, without a helm or an anchor. From where is our assistance to come, and when will we be delivered ? ILLINOIS REPUBLICANS. The Work of the State Convention at Springfield.

A Man Holds the Brute Till a Bystander Kills It. St. Joseph. Mo.. June 24.—Ira Peters, Mrs. E. H. Leach and daughter, and Emma Riley were seriously bitten by a mad dog yesterday morning. The dog chased the two little girls aud bit them several times. Mr. Peters went to their rescue, when the brute turned on him. biting him in four places, but he held the dog until a bystander killed him. All of the victims are suffering intensely from their wounds. A Fatal Celebration. Columbia, S. C., June 24.—The premature explosion of a eonnon at a democratic meeting to-day resulted in the fatal injury of two men and the serious wounding of another, The only Complexion Powder in the world that is without vulgarity, without injury to the user, and without doubt a beautifier, is Poaso ni’s. Mrs. Bruin, Her Cubs, a Bulldog,'and Some Cattle Engage in a Fight. Scranton, Pa., June 24.—A few days ago Charles and Robert Kiple. thrifty Monroe county farmers, brought up a lot of cattle on the Pocono plateau, and started to drive them to their farm in the neighborhood of Taunkletown. A brindled bulldog accompanied them. Three miles south of Houser’s mills the cattle came to a halt, and partly turned around, and the men had all they could do to keep them from stampeding. After they had got the cattle headed right again they saw what had caused the scare. A few rods away an old she bear was sitting in the center of the road, and on each side of her there was a cub. and all three were looking at the frightened cattle. The young men could not get the drove to budge from where they were, so they sent the dog ahead to drive the bear family out of the road. The dog bounded forward, and when the bears saw him coming they got down on all fours, and started at him, making no move to get out of the way. Instead of pitching at the old bear the bulldog grabbed one of the cubs and began to drag it toward the log fence; but he hadn't gone far when the squal-ing little brute brought the mother who attacked the dog and made him let go. That waked the bulldog up. and he whirled and got a hold on the old bear's flank. The cubs vanished like par tridges. while their mother was raging and trying to shake the dog off; and for a moment the old bear and the dog had it hot and heavy, from one side of the road to the other. Finally; the bulldog set his teeth in the bear's nose. and the noise and the efforts she made to fling him away excited the curiosity of the cattie to such a pitch that they set up a bellowing, and went cantering toward the belligerents with heads and tails in the air. The young men hurried after the drove, intending to keep it on the move until it had passed the bear; but the ring-leaders halted as soon as they had reached the fighters. Just then the old bear shook the dog loose from her bleeding nose, and threw him over the fence. She then started for the opposite side of the road * but the ringleaders headed her off, aud a moment later the whole heard was bellowing furiously and endeavoring to get a chance at the bear. Then the dog re turned and the cattle separated when the canine again tackled the bear, and got a broken back from one of her paws. Before the cattle had time to close up their ranks Charles Kiple dashed ahead of them and fired five revolver bullets into the bear's head. Then the young Bleu whipped the drove into a run, ana left the dead dog and the dead mother bear lying by the roadside. THE LCUISANA LOTTERY COMPANY. Investigating the Charges of Bribery in the City Council. Chicago, June 24.—The investigation into the charges of boodling iii the city council was begun by the grand jury this morning. Evidence was presented that Mike McDonald, a wealthy ex-gambler, offered Alderman Charles Monear and Simeon Wallner 83,000 each to vote for the West Lake Street Elevated railroad ordinance. They only got 81,300 each and made affidavit to that effect in the office of Joseph C. Mackin, recently released from the penitentiary for election frauds. These tilings were sworn to by Mackin and his clerk. This afternoon attachments were issued for the two ex-aldermen—Monear and Wallner—and they were brought in and gave bonds for their appearance to-morrow. Monear says the allidavid hearing his name is forgery and the whole business a conspiracy. It is thought a man namee Peter Gable that charges of bribary are expected to be proven. Gable is a gambler and is said to have an unsavory reputation. Springfield. June 24.—The republican state convention met in the city at noon to-day and was called to order by Gen. Jas. S. Martin, chairman of the state central committee. General Martin presented the name of Horace S. Clark, of Coles county, for temporary chairman he was unanimously elected. Clark was escorted to the chair and addressed the convention, eulogizing the republican party, its record, recounting its achievements in war and peace. At the close of the chairman's address the temporary organization was completed. The secretaries. as selected by the state committee were announced. A dispatch was read from Senator Cullom congratulating the convention and party on the prospects, both state and national. The districts were called and members of the committee were announced. The following is the state central committee as announced:    Pliny    B.    Smith of Chi cago O. I. Chott of Chicago, Henry Hertz of Chicago. E. S. Conway of Cicero, — Fraser of Auroro, Geo. S. Roper of Rockford. Thos. Diller of Sterling, Thos. C. Fullerton of Ottawa. E. A. Wilcox of Minonk. J. C. Edwards of Peoria, Peyton Roberts of Monmouth, W. H. Keit of Quincy, Clarence Paul of Springfield, D. Biffin of Lincoln, Jas. H. Clark of Mattoon, II. Jones of Robinson, J. Hamlin of Shelbyville, Henry Bruggerman of Alton, J. S. Martin of Salem and W. S. Rheat of Marion. It was decided to refer all resolutions to the committee without reading or discussion. A recess was then taken. After recess the committee on permanent organization reported the following permanent officers, and the report was unanimously adopted:    General John McNulta of Bloomington, chairman; C. A. Partridge of Waukegan, secretary; George I). Buckingham of Danville, and L. F. Watson of Watseka, assistant secretaries; John T. Lews of monmouth, recording clerk. A breeze was created in the convention by the presentation of a resolution to elect two members of the state convention at large. The resolution was offered by E. II. Wright, a colored employe in the secretary of state's office, and was voted down. It wras renewed by E. IL Morris, also colored, of Chicago, who made an appeal iii behalf of the colored representation in the central committee. This appeal met writh favor and the resolution passed. E. H. Wright, the author of the resolution, then nominated E. IL Morris (colored) and a delegate from the fifteenth district nominated A. M. (Long) Jones. There was considerable opposition to the nomination of Jones but the resolution was finally adopted by a large majority. The following gentlemen were placed in nomination for state treasurer: Franz Amberg, of Chicago; Cicero J. Lindley. of Greenville; G. W, Brown, of Vandalia: J. IL Willis, of Metropolis, and Conrad Secrest, of Watseka. The first bal lot resulted as follows: Amberg 410, Lindley 235, Willis 73, Brown 78, Secrest 131. A second ballot was taken, but before the result wras announced, it being evident that Amberg had secured the majority, it w’as moved he be nominated by acclamation. The motion carried unanimously. For state superintendent of public instruction, Prof. Freeman, of Aurora, wras nominated. Dr. Richard A. Edwards, the present incumbent, moved the nomination be made unanimous by acclamation. This was done. spoken ffi condemnation of the government's ourse in the Times-Parnell case. He goes before his constituents for reelection avowedly to test the opinion of the the government on the licensing question, but the whole line of the government's policy will be tested as well. It is not improbable that Caine will use the licensing question as a pretext for severing his connection with the majority and rejoining the Gladstonian camp. Taken with the desertion of the government by the Times and the Daily Telegraph and the fierce assaults of the radical unionist Chronicle upon it. Caine's action is verr embarrassing to Lord Salisbury and his colleagues. Salisbury is also troubled about the attitude of France. There are wellgrounded rumors that the Franeo-Rus-sian alliance is an accomplished fact, with a strong probability of the eventual accession of Servia. Bulgaria and possibly Roumania, which would mean an addition of over five hundred thousand men to the already enormous forces of France and Russia. M. Ribot's sharp words in the French chamber on Saturdax in opposition to the English acquisition of Zanzibar are a presage of serious trouble. which Sir James Ferguson found it necessary to meet yesterday by a conciliatory attitude. Now comes the news that one of Cardinal Lavigerie's missionaries has converted King Mwanga of Uganda to the Catholic faith and brought him under French influence. This means serious trouble for England in a large tract of Africa which, until recently, was under her control. The lord mayor of London, in answering a criticism to the effect that he had sacrificed the dignity of his office in signing a memorial to Cardinal Manning, says that cardinals have been regarded all over Europe, since the loss of the temporalities of the Holy See, as deposed princes, and that Mr. Gladstone and Lord Salisbury have both recognized this rank in Cardinal Manning. The cardinal has written a letter expressing his earnest sympathy with the cause of home rule t Iremand, a subject on w hich British Roman Catholics are very much divided. BERNHARDT’S NARROW ESCAPE. She Taken un Overdose of Chloral by Mistake and Is Only Saved by Hard Work. London. June 24.—Upon returning to her hotel after having performed at Her Majesty's theater last evening, Mine.

The attorney was put upon the stand and emphatically denies any such action. The judge ruled the matter out hut it will no doubt have some weight with the jury.

Six hundred men are employed by them. The clork makers are exulant. Gladstonians Trying to Force an Appeal to the Country. London, June 24.—The liberals are iii high glee to-day and the tories are despondent. The government is beaten all along the line and dissolution is in the air. The ministers are quarreling among themselves, divided in opinion on questions of policy and unable to hold their following together. No British ministry has ever before been in such a plight. With a strong majority of the house of commons at its hack, it is unable to pass a single important government measure; it is forced to yield to the opposition day after day, and yet it fears to dissolve parliament and appeal to the country. The opposition is really dictating the policy of the ministry, which cannot move hand or foot without its consent. Yet the majority, which refuses its loyal support clo government measures, is unanimous against dissolution. It proclaims its confidence that it represents the majority of the electors, hut shrinks from putting that confidence to the test of a general election. The Gladstonians are conticent that they have the tory-unionist coalition on the run at last and are resolved not to give it a breathing spell until they force an appeal to the country. Most of the tory newspapers swallow the action of the government in surrendering the compensation clauses of the lioensing hill. though it does not require a phenomenal keenness of perception to discover that the process of deglutition was extremely difficult and most unwilling. Several of these journals attempt to make it appear that the withdrawal of the clause was due entirely to the necessity which became apparent to the government of relieving the present pressure of parliamentary business, but others are not disposed to stultify themselves to that extent. The Standard aud the Telegraph make no attempt to conceal their disgust and their growls will necessarily have considerable influence in the direction of increasing popular tory disapproval of the government’s display of weakness. The journals plainly intimate to the ministry that it was a most unwise move on their part to make so disgraceful an attempt to cover up their virtual defeat in the house the other day and even go so far as to accuse the government of cowardice. But if the conservative newspapers are chagrined, the publicans are furious. They had prepared a monster petition in favor of the abandoned clause, to which they had obtained 500,000 signatures. This petition they had intended to present to parliament today as an expression of the enormous popularity of the measure and their exasperation at the government’s faintheartedness at its first parlamentary rebuff will doubtless make itself felt in the next general elections. Mr. Balfour now admits that he has always opposed the licensing clauses and is glad that they have bee disposed of by the action the government has taken. The resignation of W. S. Caine, the unionist whip and member for Barrow-in-Furness, is a bad blow for the government. He is a temperance man and has given a strnuous opposition to the license bill from the start. He is also very out- A Spirited Debate iii the Reiehstag. Berlin, June 24.—There was a spirited debate in the reiehstag to-day ove the army hill. Chancellor Von Capriv declared the federal government would neither drop the hill nor accept amend ments. The federal government conk not agree to curtail the service, bu he was authorized to say a much large number of men would be placed on the retired list in the autumn. The federal governments had met the reiehstag quite far enough. He therefore urged the adoption of the hill. The debate was then adjourned. IOWA STAIE POLITICS. The Republican State Convention at Sioux City. What I nil lienee It Will Have on the Results of the Fall Elections—The Famous Piper Trial—General State News. [Special to The Hawk-Bye.] Des Moines, June 24.—lf there bo one class more than another especially nterested in what the republican state convention does at Sioux Cliv on Wednesday. it is the democrats. There is no question that the action of that eonven-ion will have much to do with the result of the election this fall. It is unfortunate that it has not settled the supreme ourt decision matter. It would have implified the question. It is quite evident the Wilson bill will not pass the house. It should not, unless amended so as to cover all articles subject to police regulations of the state. Iowa will not accept Mr. Wilson's single idea. But a very important question arises here. Should the Wilson bill pass, what is gained? Will it validate that portion of the Iowa statute which the supreme court has declared void by removing the inhibition against it? The rulings of the courts, in similar cases, in, dicate that it will not. so that if it passes nothing will or can bt* gained until the Iowa legislature has re-enacted the law. so that the present condition must remain for two years more, unless an extra session of the legislature is convened, which it is not at all probable Governor Boies will assent to, and if he did, of what avail would it be as the legislature is now comprised? If it were assured that under the “original package” decision saloons could be positively prohibited and an end put to the bar and treating, there are many members of the republican side of the legislature who would vote for it, and they will he found in the state convention on Wednesday. There are thollands of republicans and democrats who vote for prohibition solely to get rid of the saloon. This fact might develop itself in an extra session of the legislature. It is evident that tile republican state convention will require wise counsel. Tne county republican conventions have now all been held and the indications are renomination of all the Iowa congressmen except Conger and Kerr. The former will he succeeded by Captain Hull, of this city. The latter is an unknown quantity. WHAT TUE CONVENTION WILL DO. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Des Moines, June 24.—From report" received here prominent republicans are of the opinion to-morrows convention at Sioux City will adopt a platform favoring congressional action to give the states tin* right to pass police regulations over tile liquor traffic and exempting liquor from inter state commerce control, thus doing away with the original package decision. Such action it is thought will satisfy both elements of the party, although there an* reasons to believe the convention will have a stormy session upon the liquor plank. The McKinley bill will no doubt be endorsed as well as the position of the western republicans upon the silver question. It is also thought that some action will Im* taken definitely locating tin* convention at Des Moines.

Two Case* Report#**! from Fountain Green Township—Quarantined. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Carthage, 111., June 24.—Considerable alarm exists in the country round about the little inland town of Fountain Green, twelve miles east of Carthage, concerning the report that small-pox exists in the family of .James H.
