The house committee on rivers aud harbors bas come to that conclusion, and the only appropria tions that they will recommend, if any, will be for work under the control of tlu-Missi-sippi river commission and at one or t-vo points mentioned by tho chief of engineers where United States property will be endangered un!. -; work is done This decision is believed to have been largely influenced by the president, who is said to be greatly a'armed at the expenditures during his administration and who i mainly responsible for the fact that in neither the report of the chief of engineers nor the annual estimates submitted by the secretary of th" treasury are any appropriations asked for internal improvements.

OPPOSE THE ELECTION BILL, Sensational Resolutions Adopted by the Farmers’ Alliance A Shameful Proceeding Near Mendon, Illinois [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Mendon, 111., Dee. 3.—News is brought to this city of a most shameful occuranee in Honey Creek township, which has nearly cost the life of a young bride and deranged the mind of the husband. Mr. and Mrs. Sam Hardy were married one night last week and a gang of men and boys from the neighborhood assembled to charivari the young couple, die bride became so frighten, d at the hideous noise that she fainted and lay unconscious for about Three hours. The husband, thinking his wife was dead, became uncontrollable, and It was only by giving bim an opiate that he was quieted. He has ever since been deranged, but it is hoped that he will eventually recover. A Commotion Over Color. [Special to The Hawk-ISyo.l Mr. Pleasant, la., Dec. 3.—Mr. L. IL McCracken, a colored barber, has created quite a commotion in religions circles here. About a year ago, after a very acrimonious and prolonged iriaR he was expelled from the colored M. E. church. He was consequently readmitted however. But he had hardly gotten back, when trouble again arose and another trial seemed emminent. McCracken fearing that the former penalty would bx imposed again, made use of his discretion and took out his letter according to the Methodist plan. His colored brethern supposed this would end the matter. But this did not prove to be the case, for last Sunday he put in his letter at the First M. E. Chureh. To say the least, this was a surprise. Said church has no colored members, and his action has caused great agitation. The minister has been in consultation with the leading members of the congregation but it is not known what the outcome will be.

There is however, good author- wholesome, judicious legislation thar will give the right to inspect, quarantine, destroy and di-infect. He noted the result In killing out the pleuro-phneu-monia among cattle at Chicago as In line with the plan. One-tenth part of the losses now sustained would pay all the cost of such enforcement and bring property to many where now there is disaster through disease Where pastures have been used by cholera hogs they should be let alcme for six months, when they would be safe for use. Yards should be raked and the refuse burned. Dei s should be washed out with disinfecting solutions of lime,etc.,cleanliness being one of the certainties of protection. Hr. Parsons i f the National Bureau of Animal Industry, sent by Secretary Rusk to visit the association, was called on and spoke very earnestly. He wanted the association to recognize Washington and to become in thorough rapport with the efforts of the department in all the great measures Instituted to check the disease and develop that which is most profitable on the farm In all blanches. The suggestion1 of Prof. Spiker as to legislation of the most thorough kind was endorsed and there should be such a demand that there is no denial. The secretary of agriculture wants to do all that can be done in every way to check the great and disast rous losses but the co-operation of the great state of Iowa must be had and once had there will be an end to these sweeping calamities. Sam Clark, of “Clark's Hog Cure” then spoke of cleanliness and the u^e of radical changes in the course of the hog s life. While Mr. Clark thinks he has a good thing for the bowels of the sick hog he nevertheless gave his endorsement to tho legislative idea. Senator Yale, of Van Buren, was then given the floor and he pointed out the trouble that attended t he passage of such general legislation as called for. But if the breeders would come up and demand it the great work could be accomplished without fail. To that end every effort should be made by all. The discussions continued until noon and were general and of much value, when the association adjourned until Thursday morning. LAST EVENING’S SKS "ION cf the Shorthorn cattle men was marked by a goodly attendance and by the presentation of a splendid paper by Hon. C. W. Norton on “The Shorthorn preeminently the beef producer of the world.” It was a very bright paper full of energetic thought and will make one of the entertaining and Instructive sections in the records. With the appointment of committees the meeting adjourned until this morning, when the following report of the committee on officers was adopt'd. President, Dan iSheehan, of (Rage, secretary and treasurer, C W. Norton, of Durant; vice-presidents, Martin I1 linn, of Des Moines, C. C.

Every attorney for the defendants had his little say, and one cannot help but be amused at the technical points they make. The state is fighting hard but it is extremely probable the court will sustain the position of the defendants’ counsel and take the case from the jury. It is thought tha decision will be rendered to-morrow aftarnoon. Strurk Illuminating Gas. Muscatine la , Dec. 3 —Illuminating gas has been discovered on the farm of R. M. Rec, in Concord township. Louisa county, about twenty miles from Muscatine. He had been boring for water, and a few days ago, gas come up so strong as to throw mud and water 2( 0 feet high. This is the well that has heretofore shown symtoms of gas, but Mr. Lee is now so confident that he is getting the necessary piping to bring the gas to his residence for use. Much Interest is excited over the discovery. Ocala, Ila , Dec. 3.—The sensation of the morning session of the Farmers’ Alliance wa' when President Livingston, of the Georgia alliance, arose to a question of privilege ar d denounced a-infamously false the insinuations in the r ewspapers *:med at Dr. Macune and himself aud even ut President Polk, in connection with the recent sena’orial contest in Georgia. Ile demanded the appointment of a fair and impartial com-Tuttee to thoroughly investigate the charges. President Polk arid Dr. Macune also spoke, and it was decided that a committee of investigation be appointed, to consist of one member from each state delegation, to make a thorough and searching investigation in accordance with the demand of the gentlemen concerned. At the afternoon session, W. S. McAllister, of Mississippi, introduced a preamble and re-olution setting forth that the president of the United S ates in his annual message recommends aud urges the irnmedia’e passage of the Lodge election bill; that said bbl involves a radical revolution in the election machinery of the union, and its passage would be fatal to the autonomy of state aud the cherished liberties of the citizens; that said bill is partisan in spirit and will be partisan in application, thus re vitalizing the gory ghost of sectional estrangement; that In the holy war the Alliance has declared against sectionalism. The firesides of the farmers of north, east, south and west ar< citadels around which the heaviest battles are being fought, aud to the end that victory may crown the crusade and fraternity and unity reign; there'ore he it Resolved, By the National Farmers’ Alliance and Industrial Union of Arner-! iou,in national council assembled,that we do most solemnly protest against the pi-sage of said bill and most earnestly petition our senators to employ all fa r and legal means to defeat this unprincipled measure, which can result in nothing but evil to our common and b< loved country. Mr. McAllister made a strong speech in favor of the resolution. Delegate Deming, of Pennsylvania, saiu he regarded the introduction of the resolutions as untimely; that there was largtly prevalent in the north a feeling that the Farmers’ Alban e wa* a southern organization, saturated with sou>Item sentiments; and that the passage of tlu'se resolutions would strengthen the opinion and check tho growth of the all alice in the north and east. A delegate from illinois expressed the same sentiment. He feared tho adoption of the resolution would confirm the charge that the Farmers’ Alliance is a partisan body. The alliance, he -ald. is getting a grip in the west and in localities where republican sentiment was strong. This action of the national order would tend to throw it into p Jiileal disrepute and stop its expansion over the states of the west and northwest. After several other speeches however, McAllister's motion to adopt the ^solutions was put and carried unanimously, amid the wildest enthusiasm. Resolutions were also adopted denouncing the Louisiana lottery as a blot iii American civilization and morals, ar.d providing for the intr' duetion In congress of a resolution fading for the submission to the people of America of an amendment to the national constitution prohibiting the operation of lotteries in any state The resolution was adopted unanimously.
