Aug. Ll.—The senate, after transacting routine business this morning took up the river and harbor bill. Messrs. Edmunds and Hoar decided to have consideration of tin* tariff bill resumed and voted against the motion to take up the river and harbor bill. An amendment to insert a provision for the purchase <*f two canals from Kewanee bay to Portage lake and to Lake Superior and tin* works, lands and franchises connected therewith for $350,OOO was the first item that gave rise to discussion. Vest and Morgan stating objections to it. It was agreed to. Among other amendments reported by the committee on appropriations and agreed to the senate were the follow-inserting items of 8900,000 for locks and approaches at St. Marys falls. Michigan, and $400 for Hay lake channel, Michigan; reducing the appropriation for the Kaskaskia river.

Adjourned. THE HOUSE. Mr, leaker From New York Create!* a Little excitement. Washington. Aug. 15.—In the house after an unsuccessful effort made to secure the passage of the senate bill granting leaves of absence to per diem employes in the customs service, the house proceeded to the consideration of the conference report on the Indian appropriation bill. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, criticized the report as being the most extraordinary one* which had ever been submitted during his experience in the house. The senate had agreed to the amendments aggregating >1.200,OOO. The house had non-coneurred in these amendments. Then tins strange thing happened. The conference report carried the full amount of the bill as it passed the house with the full amount of the senate amendments and si .'.eon more. The bill created a number of offices and increased a number of salaries. After considerable debate in which Springer moved to recommit the bill to the committee on Indian affairs, the conference report was agreed to. The house then resented the reconsideration of the Nut McKay bill, the question being on its reference to the committee on claims. This was rejected. Pending further consideration of the McKay bill, Cannon, by unanimous consent, called up the senate joint resolution providing that the unexpended balance of appropriation" for the aid of the Mississippi flood sufferers be used to aid the destitute persons in Oklahoma. After the ad' otion of an amendment providing that the money lie distributed under the direction of the secretary of war. the joint resolution was passed. A vote was then taken on the passage of the McKay bill which resulted: yeas 77. nays 50 -no quorum and a call of the house was ordered but failed to develope a quorum. Mr. Thomas. >f W isconsin, offered a resolution directing tin* sargeant-at-arm*' to arrest the absent members. Mr. Baker, of New York. created some little excitement by offering as a substitute therefor a resolution reciting an editoria appearing in the New York Nim of this morning, upon the declaration of Roger 1.1. Mills, of Texas, that "this (Washington) is no place for us. The campaign - on." Scarcely had the lurk began to read the preamble when he was interrupted by protests from both sides of the house. f Mr. Raker declined to accept the speaker's suggestion that he withdraw it, wit he finally withdrew the preamble. In spite of protests the resolution was read. It revokes all leave" of absence, except those granted for illness or to l*oger Q M ills and others employed like him in an ‘•educational campaign.'’ I Im speaker, disregarding entirely Ba-Ki'r's resolution, put tin* question on ritomas' resolution, and dilatory tactics were resorted to until five o'clock, when ’h" housi' took a recess, the evening ses-sion to be for the consideration of pri-tate pension hills. At the evening session one hundred and thirty-six private pension bills were passed and an adjournment taken until to-morrow. PROHIBITIONIST IN TROUBLE. He Lives in Washington, hut Wants to Run for Congress in Maryland. ^ a sit in 1. ton , Aug. 15. There is a a nous case hero just now. Mr. II. B. Moulton, of Washington, an attorney of "ome distinction, who is prominent in me Methodist church and the prohibition movement, had accepted the nomination for congress on the prohibition I Edict in one of the Maryland districts, bult has found that votes east for him egal because Mr. Moulton la I10t a resident of the state of Maryland. lo claims that ho is. and has made an affidavit to that effect.

Secretary Blaine Prodding French Government the And Insisting There Shall be no Discrimination Against American Products—An Able Letter From Minister Reid. Washington, Aug.

Now, therefore. I make my appeal to French friendliness, French justice and. may I add, to the enlightened sense of the French interests.” SHAVER’S SHARP SHOT.

Washington, Aug. 15.—The amount of silver offered to the treasury department to-day was seven hundred and four thousand ounces, of which four huddred and seventeen thousand ounces were accepted. The director of the mint refuses to give the price paid, hut it is known to be more than 81.14. The London quotations of silver to-day was 52 and New York equivalent $L14B>. The silver purchase to-day was for delivery at Philadelphia. San Francisco and New Orleans. As a result of the correspondence with Secretary Windom. it was announced this afternoon that to-day's offer for silver were at rates ranging from $1.14 to $1.15‘4. and the department accepted all offers at the prices below $1.15. It is now understood hereafter the same publicity will be given to government silver transactions as is now given to it" gold operations, CHARGED WITH MURDER. Motlier ami Son Arrested for Killing Barley Russell Near Monticello. IHI. Month kl1.0, HL. Aug. 15. Mrs. .John Holden and her son, Edward Holden, were arrested here to-day, charged with the murder of Harley Russell, who was waylaid and shot in June last while he was going home in a buggy, while sitting beside his wife. Albert Dunham, one of the persons arrested for the crime, has turned state's evidence, and his testimony is very damaging to Mrs. Holden, whom he heard make threats against the life of Harley Russell. She is alleged to have said. among other things, that Harley Russell had done enough to be waylaid, and that she was bound to get rid of him, and that if Edward did not shut him off she would. She also said that if she had half a ( hance Harley Russell would never see home that night. The theory is that she disguised herself in Dunham’s clothes, and either held the horse or did the shooting. She is a vindictive woman, and is said to be part Indian. The ease will come up for trial to-morrow before Judge X. M. Secrist. The whole party i* in the I’latt county jail. Mrs. Holden has threat-j ened Dunham if he should turn state's j evidence. DASTARDLY BUSINESS. A Partially Successful Attempt to Wreck a Passenger Train. Pn i "Ut KG, Aug. 15.—A dastardly attempt. was made last night, by putting ties on the track, to wreck the Atlantic City excursion train on the Baltimore and Ohio road, twenty miles from this city, where the road runs along the Youghi-ogheny river, thirty feet above the water. The attempt was partially successful and resulted in the demolition of the engine and the death of two engineers and ti tramp. Fortunately the passengers escaped with slight in.wries. Had the ears gone ovet the * mbankment pork kindred American products. in his letter of transmittal to the president, Acting Secretary Wharton, of the state department, says: “This correspondence discusses the important fact that the French government now practically places its exclusion of our pork products upon economic instead of sanitary grounds. As albs policy of exclusion is a measure for Inc protection of the domestic products of France is applied only to the United States, the department has not failed to protest against the discrimination as unjust.” In a letter from Reid to Secretary Blaine, dated June 28. 1889. in answer to a letter from the latter, already published. Reid says any steps taken towards ; calling the attention of the French gov-; eminent to the subject would seem iuop-; portune. Ile also says the French gov-I eminent rather favors the removal of the prohibition. On July 1>. acting Secretary Wharton wrote to Reid ap-I proving of his suggestion. A letter from W. ll. Franklin, commissioner general I of the United States at the Paris exposi-; tion, to Blaine, give the substance of an I interview between Reid and Franklin, j and Spullor. French minister of foreign : affairs, at which Spuller admitted that j the citizens of France did not believe tin* consumption of American pork by them I would injure the health of consumers. I Spuller added, however, there would be ; difficulty in having the prohibition re-| moved on account of the protectionist'" i feelings. j In response to an invitation given by Reid to inspect American pork products at the exposition, Spuller. November 20, I<89, sent a note, stating that, in the opinion of his colleagues, who had charge of the health department, tho inspection of meat shown in the exhibition would not have the importance which Reid's letter seemed K> give it, as the purity and quality of the meat already established by rewards would not prove that the mass of American hog products i" equally good. Included in the correspondence i* a letter from Blaine to Reid, enclosing a letter from the secretary of agriculture, giving a history of the "harsh and unreasonable restrictions.” to quote Blaine, "imposed by the governments of France, Germany and Great Britain against the importation of American live Animals and hog products.” In his letter, which is dated March IG, 1890, Blaine instructs Reid to express the hope to the French authorities that the French government “may now be prepared to extend equitable relief from unjust measures.” Blaine adds that the United States ministers to England and Germany had been instructed. Early in July last. Reid called on the French minister of foreign affairs and in a letter to Secretary Blaine, dated July ll, he says that, during the interview, Ribot continued as he had done on every similar occasion previously, that the agitation of the McKinley bill made any action on this point extremely difficult. Reid protested that France was the aggressor and should take the llrst step. A voluminous letter, dated July 3. was sent to Ribot by Reid. The American minister in this communication, endeavor to show Ribot the mistake France is making in excluding American hog. and quotes statistics to carry out hi" argument. He hints at a possible prohibion of French wines by the Fnited NEBRASKA DEMOCRATS. St ti I** reinvention at Omaha The Ticket ami Resolution**. Omaha, Aug. 15.—The democratic state convention adjourned at four o'clock this morning, after placing in nomination the following ticket:    Gov ernor. James E. Boyd, Omaha; lieutenant governor, Dr. Alex. Bear, Norfolk; secretary of state, Frank W. Sprague, Rushville; auditor. IL B. Waplquist, Hastings; treasurer, W. II. Cushing, Plattsmouth; altorney general, John G. Higgins, Grand Island: commissioner of public lands, J. liigler, Imperial; superintendent of instruction, C. I). Rake-straw. of Nebraska City. The platform reaffirms the declarations of the last national platform on the subject of the tariff. It says the democracy of Nebraska does not believe in tariffs upon the necessaries of life, and scouts as delusive and hypocritical the plan of aiding the farmers to pay off the ever increasing tax upon clothing. wool, tin plates and crockery and denounces the hypocrisy of the republican platform of this state in saying “we favor the revision of the tariif in the interestsof the producer and laborer” while the majority in the national house of representatives is gagging free speech in the interests of the manufacturers, out of whom “fat was fried” in I st;*. and for the purpose of passing the measure which fosters trusts, combinations and monopolies; which strangles commerce and destroys ship building: which increases taxes, while it reduces revenue; imposes additional burdens upon the laborer and farmer, while it confessedly fails to open the market for a single bushel of wheat or a single barrel of pork. The platform favors the organization of labor for its own protection; denounces the republican party for its gifts of more than one hundred and ninetv-five million acres of public domain to railroad corporations and sends greeting to Allen G. Thurman and his patriotic associates who redeemed seventy million acres of it for the people. It declares that the domain should be sacredly held for the actual settler and this party protests against alien land holding in the Fnited States. The Lodge hill is denounced as an attempt to revive sectional issues and place the ballot under control of partisan officers appointed for life. A liberal pension policy is called for aud the Australian ballot system is favored. Trust^ are denounced and the election of United States senators by the people are favored. The platform declares for the free coinage of silver and favors high license and local option in controlling the liquor iridic.

London, Aug. 15.—John Ruskin, the • is rapidly sinking. He ; dur- I industry of this country, and refers to the effects such action would have on I France. On July ll. 1890, Ribot sent a note to Reid in which he said the difficulties in the way of removing the prohibition had not been attenuated by the measures which were finally passed or voted on by the house of representatives, “and which do not fail to raise just complaints on the part of the French government.'’ (Ribot referred to the tariff bill and customs administrative bill.) Reid, in a letter to Ribot. dated July 28. 1890, asks pardon for endeavoring to show that “this is a view of the situation which the facts do not warrant.” “The existing rule as to the exclusion of American pork has been modified,” says Mr. Reed in his letter, “not a step to that end so far as known has been taken." What evidence of good will, then, in this regard has France given, which the United States could be already expected to reciprocate? Besides there would appear lobe no similarity of a just relation of any kind between the two subjects which your excellency couples with the French exclusion of American pork and two American bills currently called “McKinley bills." nor is there any reason why the continuance of one should bn justified by your apprehensions as to the other". There is every reason from the history of such legislation in the past to believe if experience shows defects or injustice in the working of the American bills, they will be modified. The French decree in spite of argument and remonstrance, in spite even of proof that it does not do any good, has been tenaciously maintained unchanged for nine veals. The American biff" touch all countries with absolute impartiallity. rite French decree singles out tho United States from all other countries and prohibit it" production, alone, while similar products of the rest of the world are admitted.” The American bills make no charges against the quality of the product whose importation they regulate or tax. The French decree is based upon the indefensible charge that the American product excluded is unwholesome, although this charge has been repudiated by the French Academy of Medicine itself. and though this is prohibited and ‘unwholesome’ product da" recently been crowned by the highest prize of your own universal exposition. France is. and has been for nine years past, a persistent aggressor. It has absolutely prohibited the importation of the American product on indefensible charges. It "till maintains this prohibition in spite of the demonstration of the facts that nothing thereby is gained either for it" own consumers or its own producers, and the only appreciable effect is to do injustice to a century-old friend by openly discriminating against that friend in favor of Germany, Italy and England. After such a record, and in advance of the slightest known movement to amend it. how can France have reason to expect, as your excellency indicates, that its evidence of good will should now be reciprocated by the United States? Ho who seeks justice should first do justice. Much more should that nation which seeks friendly consideration for its merchants refrain first from injustice to merchants of the country appealed to. and from the defamation that country's products.” After calling attention to the offer from "Washington to modify the customs bill at the request of France in regard to Stories of Missionaries Regarding Hie Brutal Conduct of British Planters. London, Aug. 15.—Horrible accounts are received of the slave labor traffic by British planters in the South seas. The Presbyterian mission synod in the Next* Hebrides ha" passed a resolution in the effect that “the Kanaka labor traffic had to a large extent depopulated the New Hebrides and adjoining islands, upset family relations among the natives, and has been and is the cause of much sorrow, suffering and bloodshed.” A missionary, named Batton, reports that he ha> himself seen white men in their boat" taking Kanakas to labor vessels—a" the slave ships are called—forcibly lifting them on board, and when they tried to swim ashore they were knocked down again and again, until they lay stupefied on deck, and were thus carried out to sea. Those thought likely to escape are fastened with chains on boar*!. A chief was shot dead by the crew (:f one of these vessels while attempting'o protect hi* daughter, and a native I hristian teacher was also shot dead. This slave trade is carried on tinder the protection of the British {lag for the benefit of planters in Queensland and tho Fiji islands. Graduation Exercises at Bushnell.

Aug. 16.—Editor Henry C. Shaver is mad, in fad he is very mad, there is hardly any limit to his anger. Mr. Shaver is well known to the Iowa press and alsoof considerable prominence in the democratic party. For long, long years he has battled hard for democracy, but his efforts were never a* persistent as since the republicans and morally inclined democrats passed the prohibitory law. When Cleveland wa* inaugurated as president, Editor Shaver, then upon the Des Moines Leafier. was to receive his reward, lie was to be appointed one of the Fnited States gougers for the big distillery here. In fad. he was quite happy, hut alas, the mean people of Iowa robbed him of the emoluments of the office by closing the gin mill and he became sour. He was never sweetened. Life, with prohibition, hasbeen a burden to him. But lie was a democrat, and his hopes for recognition still blossomed. lie worked hard on the Lanier. Line after line were penned against republicanism and prohibition. Ile battled with might and main againt the republicans. Shaver outside of polities wa* universally polite and courteous. No one wa* more willing te help a newspaper correspondent or more liberal with information than he was during his connection with the Leader. This connection put him in the way of collecting quite a string of papers until un became well known a* a newspaper correspondent and the latter capacity proved so much more lucrative that now he devotes his entire time to it, save what i* taken bv his connection as editor of the Aaliis. This paper is one of the weekly illustrated papers printed from cuts furnished by the Life Publishing company of New York. There are several others in the state.

It's good reading for republicans but democrats will groan and hiss: What good he has accomplished will by many be forgotten. He who stir* up a rumpus usually gets himself into trouble. Editor Shaver'" tai** of woe- is interesting. Immediately under the date line. August lith, he starts out: The democratic convention at Cedar Rapids last we* k did not 1 is*- to the situation. It din not do its work as well as it might. In the nomination of a ticket it was criminally mi-fortunate, although the platform upon which the ticket was phi*-'d i< strong and invincible. If th*1 ticket wore up to tile measure of the platform the democrat parti would swi*p the state at the fall election. The ticket is weak for the reason that it i" in tile main no better than the r< publican ticket. The people I who are bolting at the forks of th*' roads, not knowing which way to turn politically, w ill ; scarcely be attracted to the democratic path j by tho explanation that that party's candi- * dates are no worse than the republicans. They have a right to expect something better, an I it wa* the fluty of the convention to provide it. Then Shaver was a Woods man. Hr. Woods was not recognized. Shaver tells what should have been done. Th*- first -Trent mistake the convention made ! was Hie slap ii .In i ately administered to the farther*. Nothing like it has bi en *<■< n in 1 Iowa politic* in tv,-* ut year*. Tin* farmers ! elected Governor lloie* last year.

A splendid opportunity wit* offered by tile’ candidacy of Hon. I.

Mr. Woods'name had been tirst mentioned tor secretary of state, but entertaining a belief that a man of higher attainments a* an orator should be placed at the head of the ticket, lie tinnily became a candidate for auditor. On theday before the convent e rn it was found then* were five cnndidat* s fur auditor and nom- for secretary of state, and 'lr. Woods’ friendsprex ailed upon him to to allow tile use of his name for the latter office. But the convention thought otherwise. Shaver belonged to the minority. Why wasn't it done? Shaver tells some very plain facts, lie doesn't mim e matter": ho gives the following account of the proceedings at Cedar Rapids: Here occurred ii chapter of political lu*?or\ that makes interesting reading.

He knows about as much about polities its a Jersey cow. indeed the chief intellectual distinction between The two is t lint Richardson I wears glasse*. When the question of xir. Woods’ candidacy was broached t, nim lie asked witll a supercilious air. “Who is this man Woods: I never hear of pin.” When told that Woods was a resident of Webster county, (mil j served two terms in the legislature—elected I both times t rom a county naturally rcpubli- j can—and that he had served as chai email of 1 the democratic conference committee during the deadlock in the house through the <i, abend ions which resulted in tile election of si democratic speaker. Richardson did actually look ashamed of himself. This much is to his credit. But in his capacity tis boss he had never discovered Mr. Woods and had never suggested his nomination for secretarj of state, consequently the search fora candidate must continued, it was deemed essent iii). to set aire tin defeat of Mr. Woods, to tiring out the farmer against him. Mr. Bestow was appended to, lait in spite of that gentleman s positive denial <>f the use of hi* name,by false pretenses Irving it. Rielunan, of Muscatine, comity, was put forward to nominate Bestow to divide the farmers' vote. In the meantime ( humberlain was tieing pressed by the river counties as th*'whisky candidate, when Bestow* friends in the eighth district bad repeatedly serval notice on the convention that Bestow would not accept if nominated, most of the hitter's votes changed to the other candidates and on the second ballot Chamberlain wits nominated. But Richardson did not accomplish this result alone. The scheme was too cunning for his devising and too cleverly ext* coted to have been the work of a novice. The puppet* that danced about in the drama moved at Hic touch «»t a master hand. The plot wa* hatched in the prolific brain of John F. Duncombe, of Fort Dodge, attorney for the Illinois Central rail-It culminated in as grave tin act of treachery as ever any man perpetrated upon one of his own townsmen. In the selection 0* the Webster county delegation Mr. Buncombe's name had been omitted, lait Mr. Woods insisted that his own name be stricken off and that Mr, Dun- iti the great river land case decided adversely to the settler* in the United .States court here last June. The settlers, who have been working hard for this result, are jubilant, and say they have reason to hope that their titles will be confirmed by the supreme court. They will present their case on different lines from those already passed on by the tribunal.

Mililani Kickaril Caum** the Downfall and Death of a Nebraska Girl. Cloak Rapids, la., Aug. 15. Sixteen years ago William Rickard wa* a resident of Cedar Rapids and wa* engaged in th** lightning rod business. He induced Belle Lewis, then a young woman and a daughter of Thomas Lewi*, still residing in Fayette township, about thr**** arid one-iiaif miles north of Palo, to elope with him. and they were married in this city. This was neither the beginning or end of his career of vice and deceit. After the nuptials the couple departed for Nebraska, where they have since resided. Hi* abu*** and threats of personal violence caused his wife to apply for a divorce, which is pending in court at Dewitt, and will Ie* tried at the next term. Rickard deserted his wife two years ago and since then has led a dissipated llf**. It seems Rickard formed a mesalliance with one, Mary Munford, of Dewitt, who removed to Lincoln and 'urn mitt cd suicide there a few days ago. FROM WAVERLY, IOWA. MORE PINKERTON MEN.
