It will be debated probably for two days and the Republican contestants (Saunders and Powers) will be seated, probably by a strict party vote. When the election cases are out of the way, the dependent pension bill will be debated and disposed of. The under valuations bill follows this in the order of business, but it will hardly be reached this week, Saturday will likely to be devoted to the consideiatiou of bills on the calendar. Several eet speeches on political and economic questions are expected at odd times. At some time probably early in the week, the Florida nominations will be taken up again in secret session and confirmed. The world's fair committee has not, been 'Called together by Senator Hiscock, but it will meet doubtless during the coming week and it may agree upon a report within the next two weeks. The house begins the week with individual suspension day aud members hav-. inc bills in whi h they are inierested can call them up for passage on recognition by thii speaker. The Republican members of the committee on territories intend to bring up another statehood bill for consideration-that providing for the admission of Idaho. The Democrats will oppose the bill on the grounds on which they opposed the Wyoming bill. The army appropiation bill will be further considered and passed, and it is possible that the fortiHcationa appropriation bill will be taken up for consideration. On Tuesday evening beginning at li o'clock, the house will hear eulogies on the late Representative Cox, and on Saturday, beginning at 3 o'clock in tho afternoon, similar exercises in hnnor of the late Representative Newton W, Nutting of New York will take place. Silver liegtslation. W^ASiiiNQTON, March 31.-No definite, agreement has been reached in regard to tho time when the Jones silver bill in the senate and the Dorsey measure in the house, will be taken up for consideration, but it seems likely that the ."ijiuse will discuss the suhject first. The bill has been given a piace well down on the senate order of busiueH.i and it may not be readied for several weeks. There is litile doubt that there w ill be some .'eHiulation-oii-thasiIvei' question at this session of. conprreaH. yjint. fnrpi bill will final y go to the president, is still a problem. But a general belief exists that I he Jones measure will go tbiough tubbfeintially 111 the form in which it �-,is reported from the senate finance committee. Senator Jones, who has V)eBn discussing the matter diligently with the other murabers of the senate, believes that there is a large majority in favor of the measure as it stands; but he adjnils that debate may re-iult ou the adoption of >onie modifli'ation not as yet su'gges^ed. Mr. Dorsey is quoted as having s-.iid that he would be willing to accept the Jones b.ll as a compromise between the Windora bill and the measure venorted from his ooramiltee. A collateral result of the passage of any; one of these laws, will be the closing of the mint at Carson City, Nevada. This mint is used chiefly for coining silver dollai-d, F;nd.the decrease in the coinage which will follow the issue of ctrtificates based on bullion, will deprive the/Carson City mint ot' nearly all of its work, a rB.iult vv:iiu 1 will find its climax in the suspension of the mint. Pubiio nnilding HIIIm, Washington, March 31,-The house of reprosentatives recently has passed many senate bills appropriating money for public buildings, but to several cases the appropriation claine has been stricken Out of the bill. This action recalls the retnark made by a representative recently when an outcry was raised against "extravagance" of the house and senate because a great many public building bills passed eithe. 'body. He said that while more bills for public buildings would f)a3a the house or the senate during this congress than ever before, the appr.inriations for public buildings would beless than in the congress' before,; In part exp'anation of this predictiot), he said that he expected the nousetO'pas's very tew senate bills and; the 8euate,'tn'ipass very few house bills.

Ollie I: Alger, when inter-^ yiewed' said bia schooner .and many iptbers;would go into Behring sea this j^aT'to catch seals in .defiance of 'tbe Annapolis, Md., March 81, -There is some talk about holding an extra session "of the legislatu'-e, Tbe present session ends to-night. The necessity for an extra session is found in the defalcation of State Treasurer Archer. The whole truth of the condition of his affairs is not yet knownj the committee appointed by the legislature not hav ing been able to discover'the total amount of the peculations of Archer. Besides, a new treasurer will have to be elected and the memberS'.of the general assembly are inclined to fill the vacancy themselves, instead of leaving the selection to the governor, which privilege would be his in case the legislature were not in I ession. It is now the declared purpose of the bondsmen', not to pay a cent of the amount for which they became sureties, unless, after the exhaustion of all legist! methods, they are compelled to do so; One of them is bitter in his denunciation of the deception that has been practiced upon him. He has only been on the bond four months, aud declares that'he willnbt be responsible for a single dime, Ar^clier.knowing that he was a defaulter when' he asked him to become his bondsman. There is a provision in the cons'tifiition. of the state which requires- ihe:,^6vernor . to examine under oath every six months,the accounts of the comptroller and the treasuier. The peculations havie been practiced by Archer for the 'past'three, years, so that the governor did not carry but the requirement of the/i'cohstitution in this piirticular. Based oh-this constitutional provision, Mr. McCoyhasi"-troUiced a resolution in the house requesting the governor tojinform the house, as soon . s possible, when he last examined the treasurer of the state under oath as to the condition of the state funds entrusted to his care, as provided hy the: constitution, action on which will betaken at once, � In an interview Governor Jackson said that he had never beenaware. that any such duly had been laid upon the executive by the constitution until his attention was called to it. He regretted very much that he had been wanting of  a knowledge of such a thing, with which he ought to have be'on familiar, and which he certainly would never have hesitated to carry out. It is known in Belaire, where Mr. Archer resides; that he owes large bills to the traders there.^ He ;owes his butcher a $1,500 :meat:bill, atid,$.500 for ^�grpceries._. A.large number. QjE -JtriiBt ee- from A M.inneiiota Bigamist.'' Sleepy Eye,! Minn., March : 31.-la-tense excitement: was created' in social circles by the airrest of Ed ward B, Benedict on tho charge of having married two MinnesOtabslles:within a year. The warrant fcir the arrest was secured by DeForest Green, the father of one of the girls. Benedict came to Minnesota from Westerling, Ky., in the spring of 1885, and Ibeited at Rochester, Ktinh, where he ^ became a social farorite through his elegant clothing, pleasant manners: and large- check obok. He claimed: to be the son of a wealthy southern, short horn . cattle man aind along ill Deciemiber ot that � year married Miss Lillian.Bippley. the daughter of one of Rochester's first citizens. The .couple lived together-only about eight months, when Benedict dropped out of Rochester between two days. The fine looking young man'turned up at Sleepy Eye but'littie the worse for wear, along in August, and laid siege to the heart of Miss Carrie Green without telling her of his weeping wife at Rochester,: .His suit was a success, and he made Miss Green his wife in September of that year. He went into business here and lived: with wife No,'2until Saturday.wben DeForest Green, tho latter's'' father, was furnished with' inilubitable prove-of the erner. The    Kntfvo    MlMisslppI    Delta. Vii:lt8bui'g to N�w OrUiaiiH. St. Louis, March 81.-Mr. j. j. Hogan, of hi'Memphis Commercial, arrived here direct from the flooded district along the Mississippi river. He says the situation is alarming, and in bis opinion the flood has not reached the highest notch. At Laconcia Circle, which is situated in Desha county, Arkansas, and comprises about 20,000 acres, the scene is a heartrending one. This strip of country is new inundated to a depth of five to twenty feet and the inhabitants, numbering between 2,000 and 3,000 people-whites and negroes, women and children-are perched on house tops and haystacks and in tbe trees. Live stock not already drowned, are maintaining a precarious existence with their wretched owners, in some instances on the roofs of residences and elsewhere on improvised platforms or wreckages. Starvation is telling on the cattle, while the human victims are in scarcely less deplorable condition as to food. From Helena, the entire Mississippi delta country, reaching fiom Vicksburg to Shreveport and down to New Orleans, seems doomed to destruction. Mr, Hogan reports that all the people in the wide district threatened who realize the true situation, are fleeing for their lives, _ Towns Must Go Under, ViCKSBUKO, March 31.-Latest returns from the Mississippi levees report the waters steadily advancing �^uth-ward . from Skip with crevasse, and the towns of Maj;ersville, ville. Fitters and Hayes are being surrounded and rnust go under in a short time. The steamer Evergreen is in from a second trip to Steel's bayou, going as far as the drift would admit, in exploring the adjacent plantitions in skiffs. Her officers report that they found no sufferers: that cattle and other stock had been removed and that the people are safe. The bayou is rising fast. The bank is caving rapidly in front of Refl rd levee, Madison parish, the caving now being within seventy-five feet of the levee. The new levee may be finished before t he old one goes into the river. The levee inspectors elsewhere in Louisiana report no change. Trains have been abandoned between Greenville and Boiling Fork, and m fact, all trains on the Riverside division, except from Greenville to Hampton, 28 miles, and between Uoxa-homa and Benoit, ii!S miles, have been abandoned. This leaves (ireenville without communication with the outside world except by river. The situation on the Mississippi Valley railroad's main line between Yazoo river and Katzerneir is very serious indeed. Six inches more Of water will send"the "V^icksburg, Shreveport and Pacific railroad under between Tallulah and Lake On". The water is rising slowly, 'out it is very unlikely that the: road can run trains more than a week longer, and additional creviissep may stop operations at any time. The water rose five feet in Dry bayou, six miles from Rayville, in 24 hours, and is now within hnlf a mile of the town, Greenville is now on an island. The 'Sw' ?.J>�phth?r<� Epidenue.
