Mr. Hitt said he believed every member of the house w.i' in accord in regard to the propriety of adopting tile resolution. lie wished to know all lite facts in reference to the matter and he was ad-vised that the state department would send the information promptly. The resolution was adopted. Mr. Stewart, of Vermont, from the committee on judiciary reported the following resolution: Whereas.

Mr. Stewart spoke briefly in reply, saying the question -imply was whether the speech, which was in spirit and substance a bitter and savage arraignment of a co-ordinate branch, was a violati hi of parliamentary law and privileges of the house. Mr. Boutelle ^aid the expunging of the entire speech of the gentleman was expunging a part of the republican platform. Mr. Struble, of Iowa, endeavored In vain to secure action on the substitute, declaring the house disapproves of so much of the speech a' in any manner reflects vt poll the senate or any member thereof in his official capacity.

'J J.—The hoard of railroad commissioners this morning sent a communication to the governor slating that it would be impossible to get out a ] yearly railroad report by the time specified by law—December tii'st—owning to tin* non-arrival from Washington of the necessary forms. The Crooked Creek railroad company, j which line runs from the coal mines I to Webster City, when the Mason j City and Ft. Dodge put in joint j rates on sixty day's trial. did not do so. The board this morning onit*red them to comply at once as the load comes under the provisions of the law. A decision made by the railroad commissioners tills morning is of interest to the traveling public. The complainant is IT. Ik McQuire, of Marengo, who charges the Chicago. Rock Island and l’acitic with not drawing accommodation trains up to the platforms so as to easily discharge th** passengers. IL* also charges I he road w ith not making connections with the Chicago and Northwestern railroad at Crawford. The board, after citing a number of authorities and laws covering the case, stated that the company should have 'topped trains at th** platforms, aud if damage was sustained. the only remedy is through the courts. In the second cast*, concerning not making connections, tho board says the rail-toad company sells tickets to go by certain trains connecting with another read, they -hall make the connections with said trains. _ WANTS $20 OOO DAMAGES.

ME—When some of the members of the Justice family went to awaken Miss Mary the elder daughter, yesterday morning, her bed was found disturbed but empty. A search of the house and premises was instituted and finally to the horror of the searchers her dead body was found hanging by the neck in tin* baru. She retired last night in her usual health but was very tired. She did her work yesterday as usual, including the family washing, and none noticed anything particularly unusual about he appearance or conduct. The appearance of the body and the surroundings seems to indicate that she made all arrangements methodically ami evinced it certain degree of premeditation.

Th** faithful mother, with tin* help of th** father after working hours, attended to tin* wants of the afflicted little ones. At ia>t. worn out wff.h worry, overwork and loss of sleep. tin* moth r was taken with th** terrible discase. The house seemed to be shunned by everybody, and the father was compelled to quit work to eat^ for his loved ones all alone. Being physically exhausted when taken sick, tin* mother became dangerous. Delirium cairn* upon her ami it was only with th** greatest exertion that sin* could be held to her bed. About eight o'clock Monday morning, while unobserved, she crept from her bed and out doors where she jumped headlong into the cistern. The oldest boy heard the splash and running into the house told his father what his mother had,done. The father came immediately, and with great exertion rescued her from the watery grave sh*- had sought while crazed with delirium. She was unconscious when rescued. Medical assistance was summoned arid restoratives applied. She became quite a little better, but her chances of recovery are consider* d none too good. Charge*! Wit Ii Purloining Note*.

Sugar and binding twine still remain the sole obstacles of a complete agreement. Th** republican conferrees were together two hours i this afternoon, but adjourned mini to-| morrow without having come to any con-: elusion. The attitude of the northwestern sen-I ators on binder twine is said to be the I ..rn* obstacle now remaining to final agree-: ment. If they would give up their demand for the retention of that article on the free list, it is said the house conferees would at once accept the senate's sugar schedule, and thus settle the whole matter. The flinder twine senators are being labored with by the conferree*, but so far there is no indication that then position has been changed. It was said a few minutes ago at the room' of th-* .senate finance committee, where the * (inference*, aae held, that a final meeting of the conferrees would probably not occur before to-morrow morning It is said that the bill will not contam a provision for the refunding of duties paid on goods remaining in bond at the time the bill takes effect in excess of the new rates lixed bv the bill. \ Colola**!

Girls were kept at boarding houses and a general run of licentiousness per-! vaded tho whole town, while profits ran up isito the thousands of dollars.
