Xho Secretary of War Xaraoa the T�rrl tory In Southern States Whore I^tfe Ja In Ihiiiger From Mlsslsalpiit Floods-The Cherokee Strip Booiiieri). Washington, March 20.-In the ien-ate Senator Pierce, Senator Call, and Senat jr Evarts made speeches on the educational bill, and Senator Voorheea spoke at length t)n his resolution aa to agricultural depression. Vice president Morton resumed the chair. A bill to increase the prnsion of soldier of the war of 1812 (Isaac N. Daly, 9� years old) from $3 to $50 month, was passed, Tiie resolution offered by Mr. Voorheee last Monday as to agricultu'al depreS' sion, was taken up and Senator Voor-hees addressed the senate in relation to it. It was now nearly thirty yearsi he said, since the close of a terrible war had given to uuhal'owed avarice an opportunity to prey upon the self sacrificing patriots of the country. The measures tlien resorted to for the taxation of one class of citizens nnd for the enrichment of another class has lieen the legislation by which the burden of the ,pub-debt has been doubled, silver de- lic monetized and a high prptective tariff establis ed. The time would come, at no distant day, whjn the farmer would look on the proposition to tax him and his wife and children for the protection and benefit of other people besides himself, as he would look on a law of congress to establish the army worm and weevil on his wheat, to infest his cattle with murrain and his hogs withcholera. It was a notorious and self-evident iruth that the tariff, as it now.stood, increased the farmers' expense account from 35 to 100 per cent, on every implement of industry with which he toiled, aind last year binding twine had been enhanced l8 cents a pound by the tariff and twine trust. Senator Vjorhees held that the value of improved farm land had decreased 83 per cent, in the last five years. The educational bill was then taken up. Senator Pierce spoke in opposition to the bill, or in lavor of postponing action V n it until next December. Sii.nator Evarts followed with a speech in support of the bill. He had seen the bill pass twice with grerU concurrence on the Republican side of the chamber and with large assent on the Democratic side, but then the situation of congress and of the executive had been such thai there was no reasonable expectation of tliebill becoming a law. If the bill could have been subijitted to a vote of the house of representatives it would have been passed with a great deal of en-thusias.a, but the dictation of the Demo-cratic_cauQii3_and_.o�^JJie_xonimJi.ti�i^| the house. There had been, also, a question whether the then executive would have approved the bill. Now, all that was changed. Whatever should be the action of the senate, if it passed the bill it was doomed to pass the house, and was siu-e to receive the approval of the president. There would have, he said, to be found something to satisfy the northern people, if the bill were nov; killed in the senate, better than had been presented by any opponents of the liill. Senator Call spoke in favor of the bill. He supported it becHuse it was a donation without conditions. Mr. Gate obtained the floor and the bill went over. The senate then at 5 p. m. adjourned. House. In the house Mr. Cooper, Republican member of the committee on elections called up the Maryland contented case of Mudd again it Gompton, it being agreed that debate shall be limited to six hours at the end of which time the previous question shall be considered as ordered. Mr. Lacy, of Iowa, ojjened the discussion with an argument in support of the claims of the contestant. Messrs. Dal-zell, of Pennsylvania and Greenhalge, of Ma'^sachusetts spoke for the contestant; and Moore of Texas and Gibson of Maryland for the sitting member. At 4:30 pending a vote, the house adjourned. _____ The New Castle Garden. - Washington, March 20.-Secretary Proctor has designated Gen. Schofleld to represent the war department with the senate and house committees on immigration to look into the question of a site for the establishment of an immigrant station to tnke the place of Oastie Garden. While there the committees will visit Bedloe's, Ellis, and Governor's island and Castle Garden. In view of the opposition to the selection by Secretary Windom of Redloe'sand the opposition in army circles to the selection of isla Governor's island as the place for the immigrantstation, the visit of the committees at this time is important. In the me intime Secretary Wiudom is going ahead on the theory that Bedloe's island, bis selection, will be approved by congress. ;: �- .: The Cherokee Strip Boooten. Washington, March 80.-A secret circular has been issued by the Cherokee Strip Homesteaders' association, stating � bat concerted action by boomers to en ter the Strip will be made at noon April iZ, next, and that it is believed that if the movement a.ssumos sufficient proportions the settlers will not be molested. The circular having been called to the attention of the authorities at Washington, the president has issued instructions that no matter what the "propor-tjons of the raid, the settU ment of the Strip will not be allowed until it is made lawful." The military will be directed to carry out these instructions. New Uanka. Washington, March 20.-The First, National bank of Bowie, Tex.; was authorized to do bunsiness. Capital, fWr 000. V. L.

In the senate business started with the introduction of bills, among which was one calling for an appropri. tion for an Iowa exhibit at the world's fair. Another bill is to regulate the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors. This is the Democratic caucus-bill. The bills passed were to authorize cities of the first and ; second class to issue bonds for outstanding indebtedness; to empower cities of the second class to issue;bonds to pay for water works and 'ithei public improvements; to establish the first Monday in,September as Labor Day; to call a constitutional convention for a revision of the Cnstitution; to; make applicative to cities organized im-per special charter the- Jaw allowing ap-i peals from boards of equalization. INDIANAPOLtS* BORRO R. An Adjoining Bnlldlns Topples Over Onto: the Kulns-Two Bl^n Injnred. Indianapolis, March 20.-About 1 o'clock the east wall of the Becker block, adjoining the , burned Boweu-Merrill; building, crashed down on top of the ruins of Monday evening's fire. For a time the wildest-runaors-of disaster were afloat, but after a;full i investigation it was learned that but tw:o men had been hurt, though many, bad narrow escapes. Those injured weire but slightly hurt. Af ler the crash Mayor SijUivan inspected the ruins and ordered that the front wall of the Bowen-Merrill building be torn down. This was done, and abalf hour later ,the:Becker 'building, a narrow , four-story structure, occupied by a notion store, fell down in a heap. Then the flames broke out again in the ruins, and up to 10 o'clock had not been wholly extinguished, though i flood of water had been poured into ^the wreckage. There is no fear of further loss of life, though the three-story stone front building occupied by George W. Sloan, drug- f;ist, is regarded as unsafe, and there are ears that the dry goods house of H. P. WasBon may also succumb. rr E "ATHERLAND.

Based on the Changea of the Prussian Ministry, Flying About European Capitals-I.'Intransli;ennt Sayi War Is Certain. Six Men Perish In � Bnrnlnfc Wisconsin mine. HiJBLEY, Wis., March JiO.-At 11:80 fire was discovered on the third level of No. 2 shaft, at the Germania mine. An alarm was given and the men working below were quickly warned of their danger. William -Banks, Jimmie Sullivan, James ThomasV.and son, Joseph Thomas, at work :betveen the fifth and sixth levels,, ^were ; cut off before they could come up to. the fourth, level and pass to No. 3 ..shaft and, thence Bekun, March 20.-It is announced tliat Herr Von Boetticher will become president of the Prussian ministry and Count Eulenberg,governor Oi Hesse Nassau, will succeed Von Boetticher as im perial minister of the interior. Count Herbert Bismarck will be assigned to an ambassadorship. Ministers Herrfurth and Von May bach have resigned, the latter because he lost Prince Bismarck's support against the increased demands for strategic communications. The ap pointment of Gen. Von Caprivi as chancellor of the empire is confirmed. Tlie office will not, however, include the direction of the foreign ministry, as during Prince Bismarck's chancellorship. It is stated that Emperor William intimated his intention to abolish the office of president of the Prussian ministry, which proposal Prince Bismarck stoutly opposed. The disagreement between the emperor and the chancellor becoming wider, the kaiser asked for another interview at 10 o'clock in the -evening. To this request Prince Bis-replied that he was too old a man to come at that hour. Shortly thereafter the chancellor formally tendered his resignation. The Tagblatt says that the emperor has dismissed Von Waldersee from the command of the army. A story Refuted. London, March liO.-A dispatch from Berlin to The News, says the story that Prince Bismarck declined to visit the emperor at his request at 10 o'clock in the evening is refuted by the fact that the kaiser visited the chancellor that very evening. The correspondent says that Bismarck had not intended to resign as soon as he did, wishing to avoid creating the- impression that the result of the elections had caused him to resign. It is understood that he had intended to make a. great political speech on the occasion of the reopening of the reichstag. _ below to warn tbe,m^n,and itis thought he perished With thpm. At 1 o'clock tbe bodies of James Thomas and his son .were found; The origin of the' fire is unknown. The damage is very.heavy and it is estimated at 1.00,000. ai^d is likely to be many times that before the fire is extinguished., as the shaft is caying from the surface. Efforts are being made to confine the fire to the west portion of the mine, but this may be impossible, as the.timbering is very dry.

London, March 20.-The correspondent of The Daily News at St. Petersburg says the Russian government is very disagreeably impressed by the indignation meetings which have been held in England and America to protest against the alleged RussIhu outrages. A Siberian correspondent sends details of the Irkutsk affair. The prisoners were suspected of complicity in the explosion at a church last March. They lived in perfect comfort at Irkutsk until the police discovered unmistakable evidence of treachery among them.

London, March 20.-Mr. Gladstone writes.that the reason for his not paying a visit to Ireland is that his presence there might exasperate his political opponents in ulster, where severance on the Irish question, from the most of their fellow countrymen as well as from the principles of their ancestors, is perhaps the greatest Irish misfortune of the present day.
