I THE WORK OF CONGRESS. & Tariff and Civil Appropriation Bills in the Senate. The General Deficiency Bill in the House The Election Bill to he Reported to the Senate—Pustulation Figures — General News. Washington, Aug. 7.—In the senate, after some preliminary business, the tariff bill was taken up, the pending question being on Vance's amendment to reduce the duty on pig iron from three-tenths of acent per pound to live dollars per ton. It was defeated by a strict party vote. 'The next paragraph, which taxes bar iron. round iron, Hat and square iron from eight-tenths of a cent per pound to one cent per pound, according to classification, was taken up. Mr: McPherson moved to amend by striking out the rates per pound and inserting the uniform rate of fifty per cent. ad valorem. After some debate the amendment was rejected by another strictly party vote. The paragraph relating to beams, girders and other structural shapes of iron or steel was reduced from 9.10 to vin cents per pound. The tariff bill was temporarily laid aside to allow Allison to present the conference report on the sundry civil appropriation bill. The bill, said Allison, as it passed tho house had carried S2$.oo<).ooo and had been increased by the senate five million. The net reductions agreed to iii the conference committee amounted to S3,TOO,OOO. so that the bill carried under the conference report. $29.852,OOO. The amendment as to the Latin-Ainori-,aa memorial library had been struck out; also the provision for the expenses of two additional land-ofiiees. The appropriation of $150,000 for military posts had been reduced to $40,000. All tin* senate amendments relating to the national soldiers' homes (including that of appointing managers) had been struck out. (The matter will now go to the military committees of the two houses.) The provisions in relation to the irrega-tion surveys had been postponed for further conference. The conference report was ordered printed and went over till to-morrow without action. Mr. Hoar. from the committee on privileges and elections, reported a substitute for the house election bill, and it was placed on the calendar. Tin* minority of the committee, he said. dissented from the report. Mr. Fry gave notice that he would not ask the senate to take up the river and harbor bill until Friday of next week. The conference report on the fortification bill was presented, but went over without action. And. after an executive session, the senate adjourned. count w^ab°r,    1.

Many Well Known Congressmen Who Will Not lie Seen in th*- Next House. Washington. Auk. 7.—It is estimated that nearly one-half of the next house will be compo-ed of new men. The cansos which operate to this result are primarily a desire on the [tart of the sitting members to drop oui of public life, and, secondly. failure to secure a renomination or a victory at the polls. Many of tho best known of the representatives will be among the numb**! whose service for one of the foregoing reasons will close with this congress. Four of tin* six Californians—Morrow. Vandiver, Higgs and D« haven—have declined renomination. Mr. Morrow' will he greatly missed, lie is serving his third term. and is by long odds the tic-1 equipped member of the delegation.

Both gentlemen have shared with Speaker Reed the leadership of the republican majority. Both men are of national reputation, brilliant as orators, 'Tong asdebators, and just to a degree— unusual in men so strongly imbued with ’•arty doctrines. Colonel “Tom” Hayne, "f Pittsburg, one of the republican mem-'ers of the way- and means committee, ■titer fourteen years of continuous ser-wcp declines a renomination.

It is impossible to estimate the tune that will lie consumed by the conference committees, but another week would not be an extravagant allow-am e. We would, of course, save a great deal of time if. when the hill is received back by the house, the motion to nonconcur without debate could be passed. I hat, however, does not seem at all likely." How much time will the senate require to dispose of the federal elections bill?" "I have no means of guessing. There is no reason, however, why that measure should not be at once taken up when the tariff bill is passed. The two houses could then proceed together and much time would be saved.” “You do not look. then, for an adjournment before the middle of September?” “Hardly; though of course no one can tell what may arise to expedite or delay congressional work. Nothing that is necessary’ can be left undone." The Election Bill. Washington, Aug. 7. Under a resolution of the senate, authorizing sittings during sessions of the senate, the committee on privileges and elections, began a special meeting at noon to-day, to consider the election bill, (inc of the minority says that save in tin* matter of change of expression, chiefly in the way of reducing its length, the bill as ii passed the house, i- the one proposed by the majority.

Y., Aug. 7.— Dr. Southwick the father of the electrical execution law. said to-day in an interview: “I feel just as I have always felt in this matter. There is nothing against the system and the fact is there has been a great deal of senseless, sensational talk, about the execution. In fact a party of ladies could sit in the room where the execution was going on and not see anything repulsive whatever, lf the mistake of ordering off the current so quickly had not been made, there would have been none of this talk. I think Komm-ler's nerve affected those thereabout as much as anything. It looked to me, though, as an evidence of mental incapacity. He seemed to be without fear and helped to adjust the straps in a way that was astonishing. No sir, I do not consider that this will be the last execution by electricity. There will be lots of them. It has proven that the idea is correct, and I think the law is a good one. The execution was a success Kemmler never knew what happened to him and died without a pain. THE DISPOSITION OF THE HOUX. Ai in en, N. Y., Aug. 7.—Warden Durston stated this afternoon that the remains of Kemmler still lie in the room in the prison where the autopsy was held yesterday. He has not decided where the remains will be finally buried. The subject which continues to excite the greatest interest in connection with the execution is the record of the voltage of the shock which killed him. It is generally supposed that the first shock was 1,500 volts and tin* second between 1,500 and 2.000. Electrician Barnes who was in the dynamo room, said to one of the physician- in attendance yesterday, that at no time was the voltage more than l.loo and that it frequent!;, dropped to S'*.

Brown, of New York, the man who, after the New York legislature passed a law to execute, by electricity, made the experiment- and placed in position the deadly dynamo at Auburn, when asked about the execution said:    “Kimmler was killed instantly and painlessly within the first second, but as the current was openeditaken off) before thirty seconds had passed there were reflex motions of the muscles which frightened some of the attendants into thinking that hi* was not dead. The current was applied the second time anil at once as the report reached me an appearance was produced on the face and hands of the criminal which showed without doubt that the first shook had killed him."

GREENBACKERS PLEASED [Correspondence of The Hawk-Eye.] Rock Island, Aug. 7.—The news and particulars in part of the democratic congressional convention of this disiriet was received in this city at live o*e ock p. in. Tuesday. To say that the members of the party were elated over the result of the tenth ballot would not more than speak of their good feeling. Mr. Ben T. Cable is the son of his father, I*. L. Cable, who was in the congressional race against Hon. John B. Hawley and was left by the last named in the race, notwithstanding tin* district was differently constituted Adams county was then the stronghold of democracy. The son of the father is a nice little gentleman and no one eau gainsay as to his personal character. The major part of hi* wealth came through the efforts of his father and there is not a republican or other kind who regrets the good hands in which the wealth fell to. Still the people of this county who measure brain- with money think that Mr. Cest will pull up the scale so high in November that- the money of lits opponent will be as the old woman said when she tried raise the water in the sea. The nomination of Mr. Cable will throw the burden of the contest on the people of this county and you can bet your old boots that Billy Cest, will not run behind when the votes are counted on the first. Tuesday of November next. We can say and the votes will show that Mr. Gest is to-day, and will be on election day, stronger in the estimation of tin* people than two years ago. Mr. Swisher, who presented Sir. Cable's name to the contention, “politically speaking, put his foot in it." The writer was an active .person in tins campaign, and handled all of the telegrams in this interesting contest, and knows to whom credit is due. Mr. R. R. Cable, the present president of the ('.. It. I. A 1\ It. It., was the manipulator of the campaign; lie was assisted by good political heads. Time tells that Mr. it. It. Cable had brains not only in polities but in railroading. His uncle who ran for congress was his instructor in railroading. and where lie learned how tit conduct polities as well as he did is a mystery to his most intimate friends. The writer can explain in part this canvass and will say, without fear of contradiction, that Col. Joseph IL Danforth, the present editor of the Rock Islander, had a linger in the pie and was Mr. R. It. Cable's first lieutenant in the contest while Jacob Norris, an old de ulcerate war horse, was the third in command. Mr. Danforth came from New York to lend aid and give advice and also make speeches, canvass the countries and write articles; anil his work was not surpassed by the work of the nephew of the candidate. Mr. Norris was not much of a worker hut wa- like unto Win. Xeeee. Not gay in dress, but a brilliant off-hand speaker and a bitter democrat. Mr. Norris’quality in oratory and argument dues not figure in the make-up of Mr. Neece. The friends of Mr. Cable had arranged for a bon-tire and fireworks la-t evening which did not come off. Their excuse was that the candidate would reach hope* from Europe the last of the week. when the grand blow-out will take place. The friends of Mr. Gest are not in the least disturbed and will he heard from at the proper time, and time will tell that the delegates at the Bushnell convention made a choice which will be ratified by tile votes of the people. With the Republican .Silver Bill--Why Farmer* Uke It. Indianapolis, Aug. 7.—The Journal's Washington correspondent telegraphs that Hon. George O. Jones.of New York, chairman of the National Greeback committee, is greatly pleased with the now silver coinage law. Mr. Jones says: “Since about the 5th of April last, when the price of silver began to advance, the price of wheat has gone up 15 cents per bushel, cotton between I and 2 cents per pound, and butter and cheese, in near the same proportion. The average wheat crop of this country during the past fifteen years has been about 150,-000,000 bushels. The average corn crop for ten years has been about 1,800,000,000 bushels, tile cotton crop about 1,700,000,-ooo pounds, and the butter product about 12,000,000 pounds, and the cheese product about is,OOO.OOO pounds. This advance would have amounted to over SKX),OIH).OOO if it hail come in time to cover the whole of last year’s product of t hose five art ides. “The advance iii the price of silver during that time has been eighteen cents per ounce, which, when applied to the 50,(xx).(Mio ounces of silver annually produced in this country would amount to I only >q,(Mio,(KXI. By these figures you will see that the farmers have (teen benefited forty times as much ii* the silver mines bv this advance. A MENACE TO FRANCE.

The first exercises of the day were the exemplifications of subordinate degree work in Battery D Armory, for prizes, by tho North Star lodge of Minneapolis and the lodges from White Water. Wisconsin, and Bloomington, Iowa. At eleven o’clock a handsome and imposing dress parade and inspection took place on the Lake Front grounds, with about forty cantons in line. The great stretch of green sward wa- ablaze with the black, red. purple and gold of the knights' uniforms and the glitter of burnished steel. In the afternoon the great parade took place, which was witnessed by crowds of people. To-night there was another great -poctaeuhir demonstration on Lake I- runt [lark with military display, formations, conferring of decorations of chivalry of the Rebekali degree, and a grand exhibition of pyrotechnics.

The county convention, however, that selected delegates, voted down resolutions of instruction for him. after a speech by a farmer delegate, who forcibly spoke out in meeting as to why Mr. Cable's nomination should not be made. He told them that the farmers could not and would not support him because of ais aristocratic ideas and great wealth. Notwithstanding this. Mercer's delegates voted solidly for ( able. It i- expected that the mining town of ('able. in tho northeast part of Mercer county, and in which the ( able estate has large interests, will be specially looked after by Ben T.'s managers, imt the republican committee here will not be caught asleep though they may not be able to employ the same arguments as the millionaire. Miners there are of the intelligent, thrifty and well-to-do class, who reason and think for themselves. They believe in the protective policy of the republican party, aud all tho gifts of “charity money” that the Cables can bestow or remind them of having bestowed will not lead them to forsake their political priii-ples. Another element will cut a figure against Mr. Cable. The home of Hon, A. J. Streeter is in this country. Just what he may do in the way of a third party is not known, but Mr. Streeter has convictions of tie* questions of monopolies, corporations, and kindred matters. The nomination of the most shining example of their representative in the eleventh district, cannot help but strike Mr. Streeter as a menace to tin* farming interests, and his clarion voice and strong words, stronger than ever because of ins late presidential nomination prestige, will be heard and felt in a manner to make the Cable-ites wonder why they forgot that he still lived. Republicans feel that Mr. Gest can safely stay and help finish the good work of congress, and when the campaign is well on lie will have plenty of allies to present his ease to the people arid get their favorable verdict. A Surprising Change of Vote. Chati vnooga, Aug. 7.—The greatest excitement prevails here to-night on account of the result of the election of county officers to-day. This county which gives ordinarily about one thousand republican majority, to-day elected the entire democratic ticket. The change was brought about by the new registration law. and the Australian system of ballot. Quite fifty per cent of the negro vote was lost by the republicans in consequence of these laws. This is the first time since the war that tin* entire denioeratie ticket was elected in tlii-county. Georgia Democrats.

Plans of the Twenty-Fourth Illinois senatorial District. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Ai.EDD, Aug. 7.—The twenth-fourth Illinois senatorial district is composed of tho “along the river counties” of Mercer, Henderson and Hancock. At tin* Mercer county convention held Monday last tin1 following resolution was adopted: “That we believe it is to the best interests of the republican party in the twenty-fourth senatorial district, in view of the important work to be done by the next assembly in the reapportionment of congressional and senatorial districts, that each of the throe counties be repro sen ted in the assembly." Two years ago the nominee for sena tor. Hon. O. F. Berry, of Hancock, was elected and J. <>. Anderson, of Henderson, and Dr. J. I*. McClannahan, of Mercer. sent to the house. At the coming district convention at Lomax, August 14, Henderson will present again Mr. Anderson, and Mercer, Noah JI. Guthrie, Senator Berry holding over. The two tipper counties can elect by one vote if united, but it is hoped that the sentiment of    tile    above resolution will be appreciated throughout the district and    the    men presented by Mercer and Henderson counties accepted without division. A senator is supposed to equal, in political apportionment value,    three    representatives. Nearly all republicans in the district who are familiar with Senator Berry's carcer are willing to concede that he is fully Oklahoma Democratic. Oklahoma City. Aug. 7.—The tirst election ever held in this territory went off quietly yesterday. The territory went democratic by a small majority. Full returns from the election at Oklahoma show the republicans will have a majority on joint ballot of the two houses of the first territorial legislature. London, Aug. 7. — King Leopold of Belgium, if a report from Baris published in the Dailu Xews be true, has provided a sensation for Europe that will undoubtedly produce big effects. He has. it is said, made a secret treaty with Emperor William by which the forts on the River Mouse are to be delivered over to the German troops in the event of a war with Franco. The foreign minister is to be interpellated on the subject in the chamber of deputies to-day. but he cannot be expected to say much. If the report should turn out to be true it will have a most important effect on the next war between France and Germany. Between Baris and the German frontier there i> a vast network of fortresses which could only be passed after desperate fighting and operationsof a most tedious character. These lines of works have all been constructed since the war of 1870 and the complete reorganization of the French army would enable tin* government not alone to effectively man them, but to have a large force at its disposal for independent operations. But along the Belgium frontier France is almost unprotected and a German invading force entering there would have only an army in the field to oppose it. The neutrality of Belgium i- guaranteed by a treaty which England is bound to maintain. Any such arrangement as is reported would be a direct violation of this treaty, as well a* contrary to the wished of the Belgium people, who are French in language and sympathy. If Frame should win in a tight begun in this way Belgium would most certainly be annexed while German success would leave her at the mercy of Germany's interests. The German emperor’s visit continues to be the all-absorbing topic of interest in England, but lite newspapers record only the festivities. Lord Wolseley was one of the guests at the dinner given by the queen at Osborne yesterday, and England's adjutant general had a long talk over army matters, and it is impossible to suppose that their conversation was mere idle chat. Wolseley is a great admirer of th** German military system and is known to favor an Anglo-German alliance. Some time in the future the public will probably learn that the discussion was on th** best way to utilize England's small army when the inevitable war conus. The banquet given by tin* queen last evening was a magnificent affair. For use upon the occasion her majesty ordered a splendid gold diiiii«-r service sent down from Windsor and all of the appointments of the entertainment were in keeping with th'* grandeur of tho table furnishings. It is reported that Emperor William has received a mysterious warning to bt* careful of himself on Iii- vDu to Russia atul to avoid a- much a- possible too close contact with th** czar. The unknown writer of the warning -av- that the emperor has begun his reign in a -at-isfai tory manner and that there is a purpose* to give him a fair chance to prove himself a man »>f th*; people: hut that the czar has condemned himself by his own acts. Queen Victoria is represented to bt* so much alarmed about th** matter as to view her grandson's proposed visit to Russia with many misgivings, which, however, tin* emperor does not -bar**. Gut of delicacy toward Gorman sentiment tin* Viborg regiment of the Russian army, which is under th** honorary command of tin* kaiser, will riot take part in the sham battle which will form part of tin* entertainment during tin* kaiser's visit.. Lord Salisbury's speech at the Mansion house banquet was particularly optimist jo. His positive assurances of the continuance of peace are believed by nobody. Every line of the meager new -that comes from th** east contradicts it. The Greek patriarch, tin* nominal head of the whole Greek church, who resides in Constantinople, has resigned as a protest against the action of Turkey regard-ing the Macedonian bishoprics, and helps to make tin* situation more difficult of solution.

Iowa is In favor of th** amendment by a large majority, and it will cut a prominent figure in the approaching campaign, and will do away with any excuse whatever for running the prohibition candidate against republican nominees for congress. Tile republicans have given them this law. and it would be gross injustice for the prohibitionists to put up a candidate in opposition to the regular republican Hominess. There was some semblance of excuse for the prohibitionists in placing their candidates in tin* field against republicans before til*- adoption of this amendment to the interstate commerce law. as they held that a republican sn" proim* court had overthrown the features of a law which permitted Hie states to enjoy prohibition.
