Ihe pm-ty stoutly assert that the Hi-lion ot Mr. Came, in denouncing The Times nml its clKii'ses against thu Irish members Las bad no efi'eot the electors, but the facts do no! sustain this declaration, as will un- doubtedly be seen when the St. Pancreas election takes place.

AXOTI1EH MAVBIUCK CASE. A case similar in many respects to that of M.'iybrick has been brought to public by the arrest of Mrs. Elizabeth of IIJ Chester street, on the charge of administering poison to her husband and children. All ol her victims are ill from the s of tin- poison and it is feared that one of fhein will not recover, Tbe police of Liverpool raided twenty-six i-lulis m th.it city in deference to repeated that gambling was carried oil without restraint in the houses indicated, anil in fart that gaming was the sole reason their existence as places of resort.

Half of the business hou-sos ot tho toun were tm- roofwi, and many were materially damaged, wblleseveral buildings were destroyed. The cotton compress wa.s unroofed and the Northern Methodist church demolished. A bnck mill wus unrooted. The cyclone next struck the handsome building of the Browns- ville savings bank. Tbe roof was taken off and fell to the street with a tremendous crash. Three squares of buildiugs across the street just north of the bunk were unroofed, with the exception of the bouse of J. B. Phillips Co. Only ona residence is re- ported as having been damaged, that of Mrs. A. Baynson on Washington street Follow- ing the cyclone cuine a great flood of rain that completely drenched tbo goods in the unroofed bouses. The losses will aggregate The only losb of life reported is thai of a woman living three miles from Browns- ville who was struck by a fulling tree unc killed. Her two children were severely in- jured. Are Pythagoreans Crazy? ROCHESTER, Feb. Rand will con- test will Iw brought to a close before Surro- gate Keeler of on Haturduy. Tin taking of evidence bus just been completed. Mrs. Mary (j.

Floyd Elected DopKrtmcn Commander, and All the Rent ol Hll Ticket Defeated KeADlutloim Again! tbe Dependent PenMon Bill, and OppM Ing Decoration Desecration. SVRAI-USK, N Y., Feb. At yesterday' encampment of tbe New York state depart men t of tho Grand Army of the Republi Coi Floyd C'larkson of New York waaelecte( department commander, but contrary to ex pectation, all the other candidates on hli ticket were defeated. It is the first time I the Grand Army history of this state that thB mun elected to tbe first office m tbe gift of Dm department has not been able to carry tbs rest ol the ticket along withhim Alfred Lyth of Buffalo, one of tbe candidates for senior vico commander, was thought to be as sure u winner as Clarkson himself, but result o! ihe ballot his competitor Homer li. of Ontario county, well it the lend It was tbe same in the choice ol the other olllcers who were elected as follows Juni'.r ice commander, Gardner C. Hlb- bard of Klinira; medical director, Dr. H. W. Carpenter of Oneida; chaplain, Rev. Robert Hurley, D. D ot New York. The following council of admim.stration was chosen: Theo- doie U Poolc of Syracuse, Charles H. Free- man of New York, Thomas B. Odell and .Murtin Short of New York, and John Kohler of I'lica. (Jo! Chirkson, the successful candidate for coiiiinaiidur, is about (50 years of i- president of the Riverside bank, New York. -'ol C'larkson announced the appointment of William A. Wallace of Albany as adju- tant general, other appointments on his stall' being reserved. Voting at a Grand Army encampment is a long and tedious process, no less than four hours bfiiiK required in tbe taking of one biillot. All thu oDicors mentioned above re- i-eiv-.-il a majority the first ballot, and the delay ihni bus been .so common ill other yearn u a.- thus avoided. The nmimittee on resolutions reported at the nl'ternnoil session. The principal resolu- tion nn.l the one tbat excited the most en- thii'-iusm one favoring the per diem pension protesting against the de- pendent bill and asserting tbat its passage would not satisfy the veteransof this state. Corporal Tanner, who has always opposed this measure, made a complete flop and came out squnn.iy m its favor. Had he attempted to do otlici vnsu the convention would have set upon him vigorously. Another resolution protested against the desecration ot clubs and it us a day ot pleasure and sport, the en- campment asserting that it was a day (or mourning nnd for memorial services and not fni re j'iii-ing. A third resolution protested against the violation of the laws tbat are intended to give vclonins n preference tor employment in tbe stateand municipal service. Decoration Day by baseball that seem to regard Tbe question of the place for holding the next eiicniiipnient was referred to ths council cf administration with power. Past 'onmmndor Jumes S Frazier of New York installed the newly elected officers, and then the encampment, which bas been one of tue most su report a bill that will cover the wishes of the Chicago people. Mr. Hitt ex plained to tin1 committee what the Chicago people desired. He stAted that Chicago anc tbo state of Illinois wore willing to conform to any changes that might be mado in the bill in the house. Concerning the govern- ment appropriation of provided for in the bill Mr. Hitt said that tbe represents lives from Chicago hail not asked for this and they were willing to abide by any reduc- tion in the amount that might bo made. There seemed lo be a disposition on the part of tho of Chicago as a sito for the fair, and of tun opponents to the holding of the exposition, to cut out this appropria- tion, The Chicago people would Iw perfectly willing tn agree to this if it wrra accom- plished. The fuct that the money pkilged to Chicago had been secured under a corpora- tion chartered by the stato of Illinois should, said Mr. Hitt, be recognized. Tho fair itself the .ijiiesentatives of Chicago preferred to hold under a national chai-ter. Concerning the commission of 100, Mr. Hilt said that they preferred that half of its members should be nominated by the governor of Illinois and half by tlie mayor of Chicago, to be ap- pointod by tho president. They also pre- ferred that the two conimitBinnwg from each state should be of tho two 1 parties. Mr. Hitt thought it would be well to pro- hibit the commission voting by proxy. Mr. Springer spoke briefly on the govern- ment appropriation. Before taking any ac- tion in this matter bo thought it would bo well to ascertain just how much was needed and then make the appropriation conform to that. He offurvd a resolution requesting tho secrelury of the treasury to furnish tho com- mittee an estimate of the cost of tup buildings necessary for the government exhibits; the coat of plai-inp; tho inhibits In the Uml.lmgn and the cost of their care and safe return to where they belong. This resolution waa passed and the committee adjourned. THE DAY IN CONGRESS. With Torn Down by the Wind.

They knocked dVwn the light guard, Jonah Ketchum, and bound gaggt-d and robbed him. An alarm was" given and a thorough search made in tne foe and darkness for the desperate men. After m hour's search two were found on tbe water ront, and-shortly afterwd the others were discovered. They were held in fi.ooo for nal. Ketchuui trip not seriously injured. Rubber MunafacturerV Meeting; NEW YORK, Feb. all the manufacturers of rubber goods in the he United States met at the Windsor hotel yesterday The formation of a trust was dis- cussed, and it is stated byoneof those present hat the details of the agreement will be com- peted to-day. It is said that no new rubber a being gathered in Para, and that the prices of rubber must shortly advance very sharply. Mr. Chandler HUB Another Set-to tbe Southern Senators. WASHINGTON, Feb. tbe senate yes- terday Mr. Chandler presented a petition from Union comity. Ark., irprewnting that at the state election tlierc in September, 1HB8, a systematic reign of terror prevailed; that armed mobs paraded the county, night and day, terrorizing whites and shooting and whipping colored voters; thai schools and churches had Ijeon demoralized ami ballot boxes carried off, and asking for the protec- tion guaranteed by the constitution. Mr. Harris inquired of Mr. Chandler whether the statement which he was making wan such a "brief statement" as the mle con- templated in the presentation of petitions, and ndded that it was in direct violation of the rule. Mr. Chandler replied that he was not read- ing the petition, but %vas reading from as condensed a statement of it as he could make, in justice to the petitioners. Mr. Harris desired tbe ruling of tho chair on the question. Mr. Berry asked Mr. Chandler whether he bad himself prepared the statement he was making. Mr. Chandler replied that he had written it himself. Mr. thought so. It is not a peti- tion, but a collection of rot and tilth which the senator collected biniself. Mr. is a statement which I make on my own responsibility of the sub- stance of the petition. Mr. Harris again called on the chair for a ruling. The Vli'e statement has been made by the senator from New Hamp- shire tlmt the brief which br. ba.5 prepared is a condensed statement of the iietition. Tho chair is cf the opinion tbat tbe senator has the right to complete tbe reading of the paper. Mr. it comes from the senator hlmi-elf I don't think it can injure either tho stats of Arkansas or ita people. Therefore, I have no objection. The statement was then completed and the petition referred. Mr. Evarts called up his resolution declar- ing it competent for the senate to elect a president pro tern who hlmll hold the office during the pleasure of the senate, and until another is elected, and wbo kball execute tbe duties thereof when tho vice president is absent. The resolution was briefly discussed and at the suggestion of Mr. George, who is opposed to it, went over until to-day. The credentials of Mr. Wilson for the new senatorial term were presented and placed on Ale. Business on the calendar was then taken up and twenty-six pension and private bills were passed, also the following public bills- Appropriating for enlargement of the public building at Topeka, Kas appro- priating for a public buUdlnB at bt Albans, Vt The senate at ii o'clock took up the educa- tional bill and Mr. Reagan proceeded to ail- dress tbe senate. Instantly Mr ]nKaIis non- fled the senate that he would insist on having toe bill disposed ol at the earliest moment possible. Mr. I'engan's argument wa? directed chiefly against the constitutionality of the measure. Mr. Wilson of Maryland also argued in the same line. Mr. Hntlcr offered a resolution (which was agreed to) authorizing tbe select committee on the five civilized tribes of Indians to inves- tigate the status of the negotiations between the United States government and the Cher- okees in relation to tho Cherokee outlet with power to send for persons and papers. After a brief secret session the senate od- (ourned. NEW ARRIVALS! Langtry Curling Irons only KV. Iilenl Unir 35c. Electric IlnirCiirlvi-H. only tic. Cream Marrciuc Twin.-, ]icr linlil 8c.
