NO HOPE FOR THIS SESSION. WASHINGTON. Special Telegram to Pioneer Press, May Democratic members of the House committee on territories gave evidence to-day that they have been all along actuated by a purpose not to permit anything to be done in relation to the admission of Dakota this session. When the Har- rison bill was read from the Senate, Mr. Springer in descanting to the com- mittee proclaimed that it was the duty of the committee to consider the senate bill, and to report it back to the House, either favorably or adversely. He did not believe in suppressing a measure in the committee and thus preclude the House from the opportunity of passing upon it. The position was tacitly en- dorsed by the comittee, the Harrison bill was taken up, and by a party vote was directed to be reported adversely. It was agreed that the majority and minority reports should not be prepar- ed until the entire question of the ad- mission of Dakota should be definitely settled. There were three bills in re- lation to Dakota before that body when it assembled bill of Mr. Springer to admit the entire territory, and povide an enabling act, and the bills of Hill and Baker, providing for a division into two territories. When the question was taken up to- day the Democratic members proceed- ed to discuss various details. Mr. Symes of Colorado stated that if the committee really intended to do any- thing they should take up one of the pending bills and decide upon the main proposition therein, and, this being settled, lie arrangement of details could be easily provided for. That wns the practical thing to do, unless the committee had decided to smother the entire question. This speech spurred the committee to action, and the Hill bill was taken up. The Republicans offered an amendment providing an enabling act for the people of South Dakota to hold a convention and to take other necessary steps to secure ad- mission to the rnion. This was re- jected by a party vote. A motion to report the bill favorably was rejected by a like vote, except that Hill voted with the Republicans. A motion to report the bill adversely was then adopted. The baker bill was next taken up. An amendment was offered to provide for the admission of the south portion of the divided territory I and rejected. A motion to report the bill favorably was rejected, and by a party vote the bill was ordered to be reported adverse- ly. The Springer bill was then taken up and received the same treatment given the other bills. This action cleaned out the Dakota business en- tirely. The Republicans called atten- tion to this fact, and proposed that the majority and minority should at once prepare their reports, and that the re- jected bills be immediately reported to the house. Realizing the awkward position in which they found them- selves, the Democrats moved to recon- sider the votes by which the bills were directed to be reported adversely, the Harrison bill being included, on motion of Symes; and pending this, the com- mittee adjourned. From this action of the Democrats it is apparent that they have undertaken to defeat any attempt to admit Dakota at this session. HON. M. H. DAY AT HOME. CANTON, May to The Sioux City Journal: Hon. M. H. Day, Dakota member of the national democratic committee, arrived in Can- ton from Washington to-day. The Advocate contains an interview with the gentleman wherein he supports strongly the Hill bill for division, and advises the people to give it their unreserved support. He thinks that personal letters and petitions address- ed to Mr. Hill would have weight with the committee. Mr. Day thinks that the democrats should have an early convention for organization and believes it should be called no later than June. He will go from here to Yankton, and thence to north Dakota points, returning to Wash- ington next month. The Advocate terms him one of the most influential friends of division in Dakota, and thinks his visit at this time will be a help to the movement. Mr. Inman is scored for not calling an early con- vention, and the general sentiment in this section is favorable to Mr. Day as against Mr. Boynton. NOT A SHADOW OF HOPE FOR THIS SESSION. MITCHELL REPUBLICAN, May President J. D. Lawler of the First National, returned yesterday from Washington, where he has been on railroad business. He gives it as his opinion from what he could gather in- cidentally that no measure in the in- terest of Dakota has a shadow of hope of getting through this congress. If the way were perfectly clear and con- gress fully agreed on a measure, there is not, in his opinion, suilicient time for any of the many bills to pass. Mr. Lawler, however, thinks the reserva- tion bill will get through. THE CHICAGO SITUATION. CHICAGO, May is a greater feeling of confidence apparent this morning iti the ability of the author- ities to perserve the peace. The out- look continues threatening in certain quartor-i, and the police expect they may be called upon to disperse gath- erings ia certain portions of the city, but the arrest of a few anarchists yesterday has cheated a feeling that this element will no longer prove so troublesome, in view of the fact that the police now believe all the leading instigators of the recent troubles have been caged, with tbe possibility of one notable exception. The collect- ing of evidence against the conspira- tors is proceeding rapidly. QUIET IN MILWAUKEE. MILWAUKEE, May 6, a. is quiet this morniug in the city. The troops continue to guard threat- ened establishments at Bay View and on the South Side. No riotous assemblages have been reported thus far this morning. The trouble is be lieved to be over.

Young, a farmer living just in the edge of Dakota, killed his wife by cutting her throat, and stab- bing her in the breast with a butcher knife. He then cut his own throat from ear to ear and stabbed himself in the breast with a jack knife. Young had been jealous of his wife for aome time and had frequently quarreled with her, accusing her of illicit intercourse with one Nash. Young is still alive, but in a precar- ious condition. A coroner's inquest was held to-day. DROWNED IN THE SIOUX. BROOKINGS, Dak., Special, May Charles Carl, a young farmer living in the southeast part of this county, nephew of D. E.
