HOYT & GOUDIE. Chioaqo, March 24,-The closing chapter of Maj. Gen. Crooks' connection with tlio west was written Sunday morning, when relatives and friends, comrades and ex-comraJes iu arms, gathered from far and near around his bisr in the parlor of the Grand Pacific to breathe a final farewell to all that is mortal of the great Indian fighter, and then to escort the remains on the first stage of the journey to tlie grave in Maryland soil. All night long the casket was guarded by a detail of tlu' officers from western posts who had been summoned here by the late general to serve upon the Steele court mai tial. At 6 o'clock the help in all departments of the hotel and with whom Gen. GrooUs had been very popular, paid their last tribute of respect to his memory, and shortly afterwards the doors were opened to the pub.io. F om this time on to 1 o'clock a steady stream of people of both sexes, white and colored, millionaires and laborers, anl to a total of over five thousand, filed past the casket, which was surrounded with a large number of exquisite fioral tributes. The services were conducted by Rev. Dr. McPlierson, Presbyterian; Rev. Dr. Clinton Locke, Episcopalian; Prof. .Swing and Rev. Dr. H. W. Thomas. Ex-President Hayes and Judge W. Q Giesliam, repreao'nting the Loyal Legion, occupied seats at the foot of the casket, with Gen. H. F. Devol of Kansas City, who succeeded Gen. Crook in the Thirty-sixth Ohio during the war, on their right. Facing the head of the casket were some two hundred members of the Loyal Legion from this city, Milwaukee, Omaha, St. Paul and Cincinnati, together with the personal staff of the lata gener il, the official and the personal fi lends of the deceased, being gathered in the communicating parlors. Mrs; Crook, who bore up bravely during the exercises, was escorted by Webb C Hayes, and Mrs. Reed, her sister, by Lieut Kenno. Dr. McPherson opened the services with a short supplication, and after the audience had joined in repeating the Lord's prayer, the hymns '"Rest For the Weary," and "Something for Thfe," were touching ly rendered by the choir of the Second Presbyterian church. The procession was over a quarter of a mile, in length and the sidewalks were packed with spectators, many of whom bared their heads as the catafalque passed by.   Two special cars were .a^-;. the r"inends and the military escort, and $2.00 PER YEAR. THE OONO-BBSSIONAI. FORECAST. Sir. Blair Itefusos to Be Sat Upon and Will Fight for Further Consideration. WASHiNarJN, March 24.-The proceedings of the house during the week will be enlivened by the discussion on the Chicago world's fair bill. There will be some opposition to the measure, but the impression among members is that the bill will be passed without substantial change. The bill to admit Wyoming to statehood will be discussed, but probably not pushed to a vote. Other measures of lesser interest will occupy the housoduring the rest of the week. 'Xhe senate will dispose of the Sherman unii-trust measure some time during the week, but the many amendments ofiered to it may be debated until quite a late day. When it is out of the way the under-valuations bill will be taken up and passed.' There was no opposition to it from tlio Democrat's in the finance committee, and noLO is expected in the senate. There may be some debate over the amendments off red by the senate committee, but this will not consume much time. The motion of Mr. Ingalls to table the motion of Mr. Blair, to reconsider the vote by which the senate refused to pass the educational bill to a third reading, will come up for action and it will likely be agreed to. In anticipation of this actiun Mr. Blair has offered his bill in a new form and very likely he will report it to the senate favorably again before the end of the week. It will have to take its chances on the calendar though, and the probability is that it is dead for this session. . The D Iph committee, investigating the secret session leakages, is about ready to present a supplementary report. What action will be taken upon it IB problematical. Tlie senate may take up this matter in th  secret session^ or it may take up the Florida nominations luring the week. No day has been fixed for either. The report of the elections committee in the Montana contest is ready and will be presented to the senate Monday, and the case will be called up for argument and actiun early in the following week.

Eloquent tributes to thedead general's memory were then paid by Professor Swing and Dr. McPherson, who dwelt upon his faitlifulness, self-denial and self-sacrifice; his devotion to his country and his manj' noble attributes as a man. The-addresses were very affecting and 'many of the veterans present were unable to repress their emotion. The pronoun ing of the benediction by Dr. Locke brought the services to a close, and the remnins wer^ escorted to the Baltimore and Ohio depot by the foui regiments of tlie National guards, the Loyal Legion and the Grand Army of the Republic. � Walter Crook of Dayton, O,, a brother of the dead general, while on his way in a street car to the hotel with his brother John, was suddenly taken ill, with indications of apoplexy. He was quickly conveyed to the hotel and shortly after revived, although it was not considered safe for him to be present at the services. The remains will reach Oakland, Md , where the final interment takes. place thisevening. '      The Iowa Bailrood Law.

Commander Longjnecker, of the receiving ship New Hampshire, stationed at Newport. N. J., is in trouble. The matter has been called to the attention of the niavy department, but the department does not see.its way clear to take any oiBcial action in the case. As far as this facts are known to the navy departihent it seems that a Sailor named Carbrey, who h id served oh the New Hampshire, had received his discharge, of which fact Commander Longehecker was ignorant. Meeting the sailor afterwards, fhe sailor did not treat his former commander with that servility which tne commander expected from a common sailor, arid he immediately caused his arrest and had him placed in d uble irons in the! hold of the shin. Afterwards Comm mder Longenecker foiind out his mistake and had the sailor/re leased. Civil action has been brought by Carbrey against Commander Lbnge-; Decker and the case has also been brought to the attention of Secretary Tracy, but'as the sailor was not in service of the U.iit'd States at the time he suffered the indignity at the hands of one of its officers, the navy department does not see in what way Comniander Longenecker can be called to account^ other than through the courts. The civil suit will come up in the Rhode Island supreme court next week. Myer and McAuIiiro.

Gossip    Concerning    Germany- Italian Peasants IJooklnK Toward A nierlca, Berlin,March 24.-The Ordentest was celebrated with the customary ceremonies; The Prince of Wales, Empress Frederick and Chancellor Von Caprivi were present at the chapel service and the state banquet. The Hanover Courier says it is reported that Count 'Von Waldersee will succeed Gen. Von Caprivi as commander of the Tenth army corps. The Berlin papers generally condemn the statements made by the North German Gazette as to the friction between the emperor and Prince Bismarck which led to the latter's retirement. The papers take the ground that revelations will not tend to edify the nations which now have their attention turned to events in Germany. The 'Vossische Zeitung repeats the story that Prince Bismarck was called upon to arise from his bed at a late hour of the evening to answer the emperor's demand for an explanation of the interview between the prince and Herr Windthorst. The question of the independence of the ministry in such negotiations was brought up at this time, and the result being unsatisfactory to Prince Bismarck, he informed the emperor that he was quite ready to resign if his retention of office was irksome to the sovereign.       _ Coming to America, London, March 24. - Five thousand Italians have embarked for America during the past three weeks. The tide of emigration is not due to any illusions as to America being a Eldorado, for the true situation of the la boring classes in ithe new world is better understood now than formerly. But the condition of the Italian peasantry is simply unbearable and the emigrants act on the theory that no matter whit happens, thijy can be no worse off anywhere than they were at home. The socialists are making.a vigorous propaganda throughout Italy, and owing to the prevailing distress among both the agricultural and urban laborers, the agitators are meeting, with unprecedented success. The government is alarmed and is taking steps to check the activity of the socialists. _ She Tortured the Czar, London, March 24.-The Times' Vienna correspondent hears that the czar, who was inclined to show mercy toward Madame Tschebrikova, has been influenced' by the minister of the interior to consent to her exile to Siberia.
