ARGUING OVER SILVER. The Senate Discusses the Bullion Measure at Length. at I? The Matter of Army Canteens!—The House Session—The Public Debt Statement —Working' Over the Tariff Bill—Washington News. Washington, Juno 2.—In tho senate a conference was ordered on the naval appropriation bill and Messrs. Hale, Allison and Gorman were appointed conferees on the part of the senate. Among petitions presented were two from New Hampshire and Vermont, against further concessions to the Pacific railroad, and in favor of the government taking possession of them. Mr. Plumb introduced a bill prepared by St. John, of New York, for the purchase of silver to use as lawful money; referred to the committee on finance. The resolution heretofore offered by Spooner, calling on the attorney general for information as to practice iii the United States courts at Fort Smith, Arkansas, and Paris, Texas, in regard to offenses iii the Indian territory, was taken up, discussed and agreed to. Mr. Dawes gave notice that he would to-morrow ask the senate to consider the fortification bill. The silver bill was taken up and Morrill addressed the senate. He said wage earners of the United States were to be counted by the millions and were the most numerous class of the country. It was that class it was now proposed to pay off in cheaper or in a depreciated .standard money and to require to pay higher prices for every thing they had “to buy. Could there be anything more likely to provoke strikes in all parts of the country at an early day? The silver miners of Nevada and Colorado wanted everything about gold struck out and simply say, “we want forty per cent more profit.” He believed by wise legislation enough silver might be utilized arid yet a bi-metalic standard maintained. He did not want to have the United States divorced from the commercial world. That was not the policy of those who led off in the debate. Their transparent design was to go by single bound to a silver standard. If the country was to have but a single standard he preferred gold rather than silver. He would, however, like to have both maintained and with the expectation that with the increase of silver and good management on the part of the treasury the value would bo preserved— silver advancing a good deal and gold recoding somewhat in value. Ile argued against the proposition to issue legal tender treasury notes (in exchange for silver) as unconstitutional. The conference report of the military academy appropriation bill was agreed to. The conference report of the army appropriation bill was again taken up and the quest ion of canteens discussed. Mr. Allison, who presented the report, spoke in its defense. Mr. Hale predicted if this canteen system wont into effect it would soon become obnoxious and hist but a short time. Mr. Plumb suggested the movement against the canteen system was in the interest of t he post traders. Mr. Hale said it was a serious and grave question whether the United States government should now. for the first time, lieging selling liquor to its soldiers, Mr. George said that if the proposition could not bi* made to apply to officers as well as to men. he would vote against tin* whole I bing. The conference report was agreed to— yeas It5, nays s —the nays boing Blair, Colquitt, Dixon, George, Hale, Sanders, Teller and Turpin. The silver bill was again taken up and Harris spoke.

The silver Dill went over till to-morrow aud the senate, after an executive session, adjourned. Tin* Holist'. Washington, .lune 2.

Adjourned. JUDGE HUSTON REVERSED. The Supreme Court Takes Exception to His Criticism. Washington. J nm* 2.—A report is extensively circulated that a lawyer had unearthed a decision made by the United States supreme court a few years ago, in which the court took exactly the opposite ground to that held in the original package decision. This turns out to be incorrect. There is a very obvious destitution between these two eases. The ease decided several years ago arose out of the taxation by a state otTeer of a cargo of coal brought into Louisiana by ship. Before the coal was taxed, a part of it had been sold, so it was no longer an original package. Moreover it is erroneous to state the court appears to have overlooked its decision in this ease. The ease was brought to the attention of the court in the argument of the counsel and was considered in the opinion of Justice Fuller, who showed wherein they differed. IOWA POSTMASTERS.

He Think* the Silver Bill Will Pas* and Predicts a Long Session of Congress. New York, June 2.—A Washington special to the Mall and Express says: Major McKinley said this afternoon:    “I believe the silver bill will become a law by an act of this session, although it is not a sure thing. There is a demand for it from every direction and I do not think we ought to adjourn before the silver bill is passed. The house will devote - itself to the measure within a few days.

But He Wa* Tried For Lunacy—Romance of a Young English 'Weaver—A Denial From Gladstone-Foreign News. London. June 2.—In England to make love to Queen Victoria has been treated invariably, except in the case of the late prince consort, as a sign of dementia, and more than one humble subject has had occasion to cool his ambitious passion in the narrow limits of a lunatic’s cell. The latest candidate for this kind of penalty is Alfred Carter, a young Lancashire weaver, who, pitying her majesty’s widowed condition, wrote a letter proposing to marry the queen and adding that no sum of money would buy him off from the purpose of becoming her majesty's husband. The young man was pounced upon by the royal household police and arraigned before a magistrate on a charge of lunacy. The magistrate did not take the old. time-honored view of the case and shocked the household police by declining to send the youth to lunatic asylum. Y’oung Carter was turned over to the custody of his father. A Denial from Gladstone. London, June 2.—Mr. Gladstone, in reply to questions sent him by liberals in Glasgow*, denies that he ever stated that tho shooting affair at Mitehellstown, Ireland, and the Siberian atrocities were parallel outrages.

The implement is made of dark green granite and weighs about two pounds. They also found a number of charred or burnt stones, and some of the bones were burned hard and black, which would lead to the belief that they were burned before being buried. The Cinnamon Bean Swindle.—A swindle that beats the Bohemian oats scheme is being worked on the unsuspecting granger, according to the Des Moines Leader. A glib-tongued agent goes to the farmer and makes a bargain with him to furnish him cinnamon beans —something new’, just out, and for which there is great demand, in the production of cinnamon oil, which is extracted from the beans. The beans are worth $20 a bushel, and he will agree to give the farmer $5 for each cinnamon bean tree grown from the seed he furnishes when it has reached the growth of five feet, and he will bind the contract by a good and sufficient bond. The seed bean the farmer gets are the common red beans saturated with cinnamon oil, and which seldom ever reach a growth above six inches. The farmer will wait a good while for the return of his $20. We wouldn’t advise farmers to invest in cinnamon beans._ Change of life, backache, monthly ir regularities, hot flashes, are cured by Dr. Miles' Nervine. Free samples at J.

C. Phillips, A. L. TROXEL, Clarence Smith, _Committee*. The Census. From the Postal Card. The enumerators will soon be around taking the census and it will be well to be prepared for them. The following is a list of questions to be asked: Were you ever born? If so, has it proved to be money in your pocket? Are you male or female? If the latter, are you any older than you wrere ten years ago? Do you know much of anything? Can you tell the difference between anything ana anything else? State briefly at length just how much you know’ of knowledge. Do you bring up your children in the* way they should go, or do you let them pattern after yourself? Are you a non-partisian voter? Have you ever been known to pay your debts? Are you a bigoted fanatic? In preparing a solution of the race problem, would you make it strong or w’eak? In settling the labor question do you use egg or codfish skin ? How many months are there in an off year? What do you do in a ease of emergency? How many emergencies are there usually in a case? Did you try “Rough on Rats” when you had la grippe ? Please answer correctly the Chinese question. Which is the easiest way out of a difficulty?

Whither do yon think the author of this list of questions ought to be 9ent— to state prison or to the insane asylum? Breakfast anil Lunch Club* Combining Pleasure and Economy. There is a very notable revulsion of feeling on the part of society in the matter of useless display and lavish expenditure in entertaining. From this time out common sense promises to jenter more largely into such matters, with the healthful result of fewer heartburnings and a less marked tendency to dyspepsia. The petty jealousies which lieset the average society woman when, in spite of the knowledge that she has strained every point to put forth her best appearance and have her entertainment a success, she sees her neighbor, blessed with a larger installment of this world’s goods, without the slightest apparent effort, forge ahead, are likely to make her feel old and forlorn even before the close of the first season. Doubtless all these truths have had much to do with the organization of two clubs, which in every instance limit tile expenditure for entertainments at their various meetings to a specified sum. The first of these, the Breakfast club, is composed of six members, and. like the second, the Lunch club, is an organization of some of the most fashionable women in society, the majority of whom, should they so desire, are able to entertain in the most lavish manner. The rule of the Breakfast club is that noone meal at which the members are entertained shall cost more than $6, exclusive of flower^. At each meeting the hostess cf the day has the privilege of inviting one .young lady, who is the only outside guest present. By far the more interesting of the two organizations, however, is the Lunch club, which numbers nine members, for which each hostess must exercise her ingenuity to devise a course luncheon at the outlay of £3. That the thing is not only practicable, but that it can be done with happy result, has already been proved a number of times by the various hostesses, each of whom vies with her predecessor in devising a menu which shall combine the qualities of variety, simplicity and plenty.

These luncheons, it must be remembered, arc not mere commonplace affairs, the culinary expression of women whoso thoughts reflect the interior working of the dining room or pastry cooks’ art, but are very dainty, ami are served and presided over by women of means whose names occur with almost daily.frequency in every list of fashionable entertainments during the winter.—Washington Cor. New York Times. How It I lap pelted. An exchange reoil Is an anecdote which used to be told of an ambitious citizen of Pennsylvania, who rather indiscreetly had set himself up as a candidate for some political office, and who, after the election, was found to have received only one vote. The candidate’s mortification was extreme, and, to increase his chagrin, all hi* neighbors talked as if it were a matter of course that he had east that one ballot himself. This annoyed him so much that he finally offered a suit of clothes, to tx? worth not less than $50, to the lone voter ii he would declare himself. A Dutchman responded to this appeal, proved his claim and called for the reward. “How did it happen,” inquired the candidate, taken quite by .surprise,' how did it happen that you voted for me?” The Dutchman hesitated, but on being pressed he said: “Ef I told you, you don’t go back on dem clo’es, you promise?” “Oh, no; you shall have the clothes, anyhow.” “Veil. den, I dells you. I make a mish-take in de teecket.” Eminent Testimony. Mrs. Henry Ward Beecher writes: “I have used Allcock’s Plasters for some years for myself and family, and, as far as able, for Hie many sufferers who come A Wife** Obligations. Secretary A. O. Wright, of the state board of charities and reform, visited the poorhouse and jail in Waukesha county recently. In the poorhouse he found a case that is peculiar and will find its way into the courts. It appears that a man possessed of considerable property macle it all oyer to his wife, who subset]uently sent him to the poorhouse. On learning the facts Secretary Wright advised that an action in equity be brought in the courts against the wife to compel her to pay for the maintenance of her husband out of the property. In general, while a husband is under legal obligations to support his wife, the wife is not similarly obliged to support her husband. Secretary Wright holds, however, that in accepting the property the wife made an implied contract to support her husband, and that the same would be enforced by a court of equity. There are no decisions bearing on this point, but it is a good one for lawyers to ponder over.— Madison (Wisp Journal. An Unusual Rank. William Murray, who is one of the biggest linen manufacturers in Ireland, tells a story which has a local interest. “You hear of any number of bogus noblemen in this country,” said Mr. Murray in the hotel rotunda, “but an American who affects a title in the Old World is somewhat rare. A year ago I arrived at a little town in the south of Ireland called Dun-garwan. The people were excited over the presence of an American official. Flags were flying, bands playing and everything was gay. As I was somewhat acquainted with the United States, I asked the name of the guest so royally entertained. Nobody knew, except that be was one of the biggest men of the United States and a na* tire of Ireland. Elbowing my way through the crowd I went to the little hotel, and there learned that I was to have the honor of being under the same roof with an official who stood next to the president of the United States. I went to the register to see if the vice president was there, and to my surprise .saw this on the books: “ ‘Redmond Sheridan, Chicago, Ills.

Mayor Duncan presiding: present Aldermen Mercer, Epstein, Winter. Fawcett-. Steimker, Peel. Riner and Blank The minutes of the preceding regular and special meetings were read and approved. COMMUNICATIONS. The clerk read a communication from the mayor returning without his approval the resolution adopted at the last regular meeting imposing license for the sale of liquors not prohibited by law. On the call of the roll on the question whether the ordinance should bo passed notwithstanding the mayor’s veto all members present voted nay. The following is the full text of THE MAYOR’S VETO. To the Members of the Honorable City Cornic'd. Assembled: Gentlemen:—I herewith return you the following ordinance, viz:    Licensing and regulating houses and places of public entertainment for the sale of liquors as beverages not prohibited by tin* statute of the state: and for the peace, quiet and good order of the city of Burlington. adopted by your honorable body May ll*, in council assembled, without my approval, for the reasons herein set forth: While I am very anxious to devise any and all legitimate ways ami means to replenish our depleted exchequer. lint after mature deliberation and canvassing the above license ordinance carefully f\ro and eon. I fail to see wherein it can be done. As stated in my annual message to your honorable body at the commencement of our fiscal year I SSO, we are unable to enforce our ideas so as to derive revenues from various avocations that exist, yet pay no tribute towards the support of our municipal government. Inasmuch as your honorable body is conversant with recent decisions of the United States supreme court, as well as the supreme court of our state relative to tin* importation and sale of ’.original packages.” I do not think that we can enforce the collection of 850.00 per month for the sale of beverages not prohibited by law. It is true that the right to impose a tax by way of license was not passed on by the above named courts, for the same was not presented to the courts. Now it lias been decided that a state has no right to prohibit the importation of liquors from another state. Now can your honorable body stop the same. The courts say nay. The above license refers only to beverages not prohibited by law, i. e. Iowa’s state prohibitory law. Fortunately the unprohibited drinks are harmless, on the sale of which we are not desirous of imposing a very heavy license. While I am decidedly opposed to prohibition, I cannot see under the present obnoxious prohibitory law. and the manner in w hich it is enforced, viz: in many instances “for revenue only” to those who pride themselves in enforcing tin* law. On the contrary. parties who have been enforcing the prohibitory law will use tho above named license to further their revenue. With many of our citizens. I earnestly hoped that the last legislature of our state would have enacted a “high license” in lieu of tin* present prohibitory law: if so, the avocation of tile informer would be gone. T hen tin* above license ordinance suitably amended would meet my hearty approval. The “high license” system is the only way to properly regulate and hold in heck the traffic in intoxicating liquors. Kiter cities in Iowa have been collecting ver since the prohibition law went into fleet a license from saloons, but in those, •hies tile saloon-keepers have not been barraged by informers or railroaded iway to country justices and there lined, ti*.. thereby throwing a heavy burden inneeessarily on tin* tax-payers by largo-y increased court, expenses, instead of allowing the city to derive a handsome evenue. During the past six years there c ould have been collected nearly two hundred thousand dollars iii this city; less c rime and more sobriety than has been by prosecution and futile* endeavors to enforce* the present obnoxious liquor law. Gentlemen, the above; are.* my re ason for withholding my signature* to th ieense* ordinance, whic h i- here with re-turned. I am. gentlemen!, respectfully, Gko. A. Duncan, Mayor.

Du the* call cif tin* nill on the* question whe ther the resolution should be* passed notwithstanding the* mayors veto, all present voted nay except Alderman Epste in.
