THE CONGRESSIONAL PROGRAM. Qnsy's ntiBoIutlon to I^lmlt Consideration Ifoaves the Senate In Vnoertainty-T^e House to Take Care of Work that Should BaveBeen Doiie Last Week, Washington, Aug. -There is great uncertainty about the senate business for the present week, so much depends on the action to be taken on the resolution of Senator Quay to limit the consideration of pending measures during the rest of the session. Mi-. Quay has given notice that he will call this resolution up not before Tuesday. In the meantime a caucus of Republican senators may be held to determine upon concerted action in regard to the elections bill, which is the matter in dispute. The discussion of the tariff bill will be resumed, subject to interruption by the committee on appropriations-which will doubtless ask early action on the deficient bill now on the calendar. If Mr, Quay's resolution should be adopted, the discussion of the tariff bill would still 'continue, but progress in disposing of the paragraphs would Ye much more rapid. Some conference reports will doubtless be offered for consideration this week. The conference on the sundry civil appropria-, tion bill will report a further aisa^ee-ment on the irrigation clause. The con-ferrees on the land grant forfeiture bill will get together early intUe week and try to determine upon a compromise. The programme of business in the house which the committee on rules had arranged for last week, and which the absence of a quorum caused.to be abandoned, will probably be carried out during the weelf. To-day is suspension day, and the bill extending the provi-. sions of the act establishing eiperimen-tal stations at agfipultnral colleges will be called up, together with other,-m.at^ ters. The committee on labor wiU probably got a day for the disposition of some of the important bills in its charge. The agricultural committee of the committee' on rules, should it bring forward its programme for last week, will have the rest of the week. The measures to be discussed and voted on are the bill to tax compound lard and the meat inspection bill.  ' ' � . . ', ' � Another Ciiuous of Senators.' Washington,, Aug. 18,-It is likely a caucus of Republican senators will be held'early this wieek,.probably to-night; to consider again the order of business for the remainder of the session. When the caucus of Thursday night adjourned it was without definite agreement, but with an understanding tbat the com-, mittee on rules would take no action.on-the proposition to limit debate on pending measures until another caucus-could he held and some agreement leached as to the order to be followed, The elections bill is dead for this session at least. Everyone recognizes that fact now-that 18, all but a few advocates of tho bill, who still have some hopes of its resurrection. The caucus of Thursday night settled, absolutely the fate of the bill, which had not been m doubt, however, for many weeks.-! Republican senators recognize the im-: possibility of doing anything with the tariff bill and other important measures at this session unless some arrangement IS made with the Democrats to put off the consideration of the elections bill until December. It isunderstood that a resolution will be presented f^nd agreed to fixing some day in December tor the consideration of the bill, but there is serious doubt of its passage at that time. There is so much onsmess before the senate duriug a short session that it can not waste much time filibustering over even the most important subjects. .The Arid Land I.aw. Washington, Aug. 18.T-Commis-sioner Gioff of the general land ofSce, hadissuedto registers and receivers qt land ofQces a circular giving in full thie recent opinion; of the attorney general, which sustains the.construction placed upon the law of 1888, known as the arid land law by the interior^ department.

Bi.ooMSDURG, Pa., Aug. 18.-Ashock-ing tragedy occurred at Danville, the details of which have just reached here. The reports, as far as received, do not say that the principals of the affair were killed instantly, but subsequent developments., show that their wounds are fatal. The names of the victims are Frank Schuraski and Patrick Mon-ahan. John Miuinies, who committed the crime, is now in jail. Public opinion is in sympathy with the prisoner, as the evidence.as far as can be learned, show^ he committed thedeed while resenting an insult to his wife. Schuraski ftud Monahari went to Mininles' house during the night, under the influence of liquor. After reaching it some noise was made which attracted the attention of Mininies, who appeared in the door with a lamp in his hand, followed by his wife. One of the men told her to go in and mind her own business,but this she declined to do, at the same time making a retort; bpt before it was finished the lamp which her husband held was grabbed and thrown across the room in the direction the woman was standing. Mininies at once became furious, and seizing an axe slashed right and left with terrible effect. The liglit waa now extinguished, and a terrible struggle ensued. Mrs. Mininies was. knocked to the floor setaseless, where she was found when the rescuers . arrived. Mininies was, al80*overcame by a blow in the head, .but soon rallied. Monahan was found on 'the st^p with his skull split, a deep, gash was cut in his shoulder, and otherwise bruised. His companion, Schuraski, was found in the house, where hb had been knocked by a blow in the forehead, which was split clear across. Neither of the men can recover. An Immense Eiduoatlonal Scheme. New Yonk, Aug. 18,-There is movement oni foot which, if carried out on the lines proposed, will eclipse all foriper plans and give to. New York an institution without a rival in the country. The establishment "of a national university iii this city with an endow-,;ment at the outset of $3((,i)00,00i), is proposed., John D. Rockefeller, president of the Standard Oil Trust company, and Rev. B. S. MacArthur, D. D., pastor of the Calvary Baptist church in this city, the two men most interested in the project, are both out of towni but from a friend of one of them it was learned that MacArthur's dream of a great Baptist univei^sity in this,city seems about to be realized. The . university which Dr. MacArthur desires the Baptist denomination to haveiin this city is one into which no one^ihairbe matriculated who has not alreadycbeen graduated from some reputable ieOllege.: He .considers it uhfortunate,.religiously , arid patiip.tiqallyji,-,that.: so.r'many youiig Aihericans have, been obliged to go to Germany, Austria, France and other foreign countries to complete their education.   !' �  .   . ' � Ex-Confederate' Soldiers' Bome. BOONVILLE, Mo., Aug. 38.-Several hundred ex-confederates and.citizens of Cooper county held a picnic on the Kemper family school campus in this city for the purpose of collecting money to erect a home in this state for disabled ex-contederate soldiers. Hon. W. M. Williams presided at the meeting and Rev. M. T. Broaddus delivered an address. About $1,500 were subscribed to the fund, besides what was taken in at the different stands. The meeting was gotten up by Capt. F. P. O. Bro-uaugh,' who has charge of the collections raised in the Sixth congressional district. The largest subscnption received was from Senator Geo. G. Vest. It was for $800. Some liberal subscriptions were received from Republicans. The citizens ot Cooler county intend to try and raise more than any other couut ty in the district and then to make an effort to have the home located atBoon-ville. , German Roman Oatholio Convention.

Aug. 18.-The State Journal devots several columns to tlie crop outlook in Nebraska. Reports are from nearly every county In the state, and as a rule indicate a more favorable condition of affairs than estimates made some weeks ago. While early conditions were most favorable, the lack of rain in the month of July had the effect of cutting short what would probably have been the largest yield in the history of the state. � The section most unfavorably affected is the tier of counties on the extreme southern boundary, west from Webster to the Colorado line. Here the drouth was most severe, extending from the middle of June almost to the present date, and it is doubtful if the yield is sufificient for home consumption. An offset, however, in the nonheast and north central section, where the average is fully up to, and in many cases exceeding, the yield of 1889. Added to this is a largely increased acreage, mainly in the counties of Cherry, Brown, Eolt, Madison, and Stanton. In the eastern and central' portions the outlook can be stated to be neither very good nor veiy bad-ptobably tiO per cent, of that of 1889. The above refers more particularly to com. The acreage of wheat was larger than usual, the yield, with few exeeptions, nearly up to the average, and the quality excellent. This is also true of rye, flax and barley, while oats is much the same as com. The culture of the sugar beet, which was tried this year mainly as an experiment, shows a grratifying condition. Taken as a whole, the state of Nebraska will furnish fully a half yield- probably better, as regards ..cereals, though tha lattei: statement must be taken as contingentj^on late or early frosts. Vegetables will be scarce, and it is doubtful if enough potatoes have been raised to supply home consumption. ,    ' � The Beciproclty Movement. Washington, Aug. 18,-Senator Al-drich will make another effort to get together the Republican, members of the finance committee to consider the question of reciprocity with Spanish-American countries. Mf. Aldrich is anxious to get the matter under discussion at an early day, so that the seriate will be prepared to consider it when the committee makes its report. He has prepared an amendment which is a modification of the amendment in-' troduced by  Mr. Hale on behalf of the secretary of state. This amendment has been submitted to the president and by him shown to Mr. Blairie, and there is everjr reason to believe that both of them aipprove of it. Mr. Hiscock has had it-under consideration also, and Mr.' Allison. It is new to Mr. Sherman .flud to Mr. Jones of Nevada (two ineiri-Lbers pf.the;'finance^ committee), but it 'will belaid before thein to-day. It is not,expected that the^'c3fasaajte""will" fake any action on the subject to-day, even : should it hold a protracted meeting, which is doubtful; but Mr. Aldrich is anxious, that the reciprocity ball should be started rolling before Mr. ShermaP leaves the city this evening. The subject will require extended debate in the senate, and if it is adopted there it may cause a delay in the passage of the amended bill through the house. wisconsin dekocbats. Would Have Eunny Geo. Feck Governor and Send Tllas to the Senate. Milwaukee, Aug. 18.-There is no longer any doubt that Mayor George W. Peck, the humorist editor, will be. the nominee of the Democrats for governor in the coming ; campaign. Edward C. Wall, of the state central committee, said that Gabe Bouck, the Osh-kosh candidatefor governor, had with-^ drawn, and admitted the , stroqg possibility of the nomination going to Peck. There is no other candidate, and this arrangement is the result of a deal by. which John L. Mitchell, the millionaire banker, will receive the nomination for congress, and in the event pf the re-electioli of a Democratic legislature Colrom F; Vilas will be elected United States senator, John C.SppPncif's successor. As soon as the nomination is secured Mr. Peck will resign the mayr-oralty of Milwaukee, when President John Ji Somers, of the city council, who has withdrawn as a, con^ressidi^al candidate, will succeed to the mayor's chair. .
