No sueh light is elsewhere to be witnessed. It las long been observed here.and Easter Monday is looked forward to by the jhil'dren of Washington with almost as nuch interest as Christmas. The day vas balmy and bright, the grass green, ind the trees in the Executive Mansion [rounds were putting forth their leaves. All the avenues of approach to the VYhite House were early alive with jhildren. nurses and parents. The in- ivitable basket with the colored eggs vas an invariable companion. Once ipon the grounds, without concert of iction, the little ones rolled their eggs lown the sloping hills and tumbled ifter them themselves. The music of -.he Marine Band enlivened the scene.

April Board of Trade on Monday gave another turn on the screw which it is applying to the bucket shops in the matter of quota- lions. It has been the custom of largo dealers to the fluctuations of grain ind produce in their offices for the con- venience of customers. It was suspected that tbcs'j postings wero being taken, advantage of by the bucket shops, and conswjMvnily ibis source of possible quotations was cut off yesterday.

GREENVILLE, Miss., April hambers, of the mail steamer Chicot, a as arrived here. He says that he saw Captain Toliinger, United States en- fineer, commanding the fleet in vicinity of Arkansas City, and that Cap- tain. Tollinger informed him that on Saturday afternoon a band of about twenty-five men, armed with Winches- ter rifles, came to the Opossum Fork levee and made the guard leave their posts, threatening to shoot the first one who disobeyed their orders. They cut the levee at that point, and the gap is about fifty feet wide. The levee is said to be one of the largest on tho Arkansas side, situated on the Boggy bayou and was built and maintained by the Government. The parties who did the cutting came from the Red Fork country on the Arkansas river, and their object in cutting the levee at that point was to relieve their section of country. The water running through this new crevasse will overflow the portions of Chicot and Deska coun- ties which have so far escaped The flood will run into Bayou Boeuf, and eventually find its way to the Tensas basin. ARKANSAS CITT, Ark., April river has been on a stand at forty-seven feet for thirty-six hours, so that no dam- age has been done here by the cutting of the levee at Red Fork. An eye-wit- ness of the cutting has made affidavit before the United States Commissioner, giving the names of fifteen whites and eight negroes concerned in the crime. The men will be prosecuted criminally by the levee board, and civilly by plant- ers and others who have suffered losses on account of the crevasse. The Catfish srevasse is feet wide and still widening. LITTLE ROCK, Ark., April ollowing account of the overflow in Chicot County has been received from ,ake Village, Ark.: "The situation here is distressing. There are many jreaks in tho ievee from Lake Village up, and the water in the swamps has risen to within a foot of the flood. Little dry ground is to be seen. The streets are all under water except Front street and water is running across it. The live-stock is huddled upon the high banks, and will soon begin to die of starvation. Travel is suspended except by dug-outs. The water is still rising. Much suffering is sure to ensue." CAUGHT SHORT IJTwHEAT. Moses Fraley, a St. Grain Specula- tor. Falls to Meet HU Contracts. ST. Louis, April 8. Trading on 'Change was greatly excited towards the close of the market Monday after- noon, over a report that Moses Fraley, one of the prominent members of tbe Merchants' Exchange, was unable to meet his obligations. It is estimated that Fraley holds bushels of cash wheat, all there in the market, against which ho has sold over bushels of May, making his shortage over bushels. On a bulge of two cents yesterday local brokers called him for S210.0QO and he laid down on his contracts. Fraley refuses to speak about his failure.but bis son says it will be all right to-day. Fraley bas failed twice before, in 1SS3 and again in 1S37. Pension Bill WAJMtiKCTO-J, April Mr. Merrill of Kansas, yesterday moved to suspend nilM and pass Uie House bill granting to soldiers and sailors wno are Incapacitated frqm tb% performance of labor, and providlm for pensions to minor children and de pendent parents. Mr Mori-Ill explained thatUM bill provided a service pension of 18 a month M soldiers -who have reached the age of siity-twa years, or who are dependent. It was estimated that the Senate bill would require an annual ex- penditure of and the House substi- tute would require tS.OOO.OOO. Mr. Boothmau protested against bringing a bill of this proponion and forcing its passage without any member having the right to one? amendments. Mr. Springer entered the same objection. The soldiers were not asking for this measure, ho said. They wanted a service pension bill. U this bill passed. Congress would have no oppor- tunlty to pass a service pension bill. Mr. Tarsney, of Missouri, said the were tired of tudiscrlmiuate legislation which placed the skulking coward on a level with brave man. Mr. Yoder, of Ohio, said that on Friday he had seat a request to the Speaker, asking for recognition Monday In order to put on its pas- sage the Service Pension bilL He had a re- sponse to that request In this star chamber proceeding. The Republicans might gag the Rouse, but they cculd not gag the soldiers of the country. Mr. Cutchcoo, of M'chigan. ridiculed Demo- crats for posing as friends of the soldier, and that every general pension law had been enacted against the opposition of Democrats. Mr. Cannon said that the pending bill would place names of soldiers on the pension and said that no friend of the soldier could refuse to vote for it. even though it did not go as far as he would like to see it go. Alter fur- ther debate the motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill was yeits 1C9, nays ST, not the necessary two-thirds in the affirmative. Mr. Flower moved to suspend the rules and pass a bill increasing from to H5.000 per annum the salary of the Surgeun General of the Marine Hospital Service. The debate which ensued was confined to a discussion of the emi- nent services of Dr. Hamilton during the yel- low fever epidemic and the wonderful he had done the country. The only opposition to the measure came from a few members who were opposed to the increase of salaries. The motion to suspend the rules failed. The House then weat Into Committee of the Whole on the Naval Appropriation bill Mr. Boutelle made a brief statement of the aggre gate appropriation made by the bill as com pared with other bills. Without concluding its consideration the committee rose and the House adjourned.- Discussion of the Montana election contest was resumed yesterday and Mr. Vance spoke in favor ot the minority report declaring Clark and Maginnis, the Democratic claimants, entitled to the seats. Mr. Spooner made an argument in favor ol the majority report that Saundera and Power, the Republican claimants, are entitled to the seats. Without finishing his argument. Mr. Spooner yielded for a motion to proceed to ex- ecutive business, and after an executive session the Senate adjourned. FT. April A bcr? Monday by the an- by tse Pitts!

WASHINGTON, April 8. The House Committee on Railways and Canals has acted favorably on a Dill introduced by Mr. Payne, of New York, directing the United States Government to make 'a ship canal around Niagara Falls from a point on Lake Ontario to a point on Lake Erie. The bill provides that the ca'nal shall be constructed along dne ol the routes heretofore surveyed- The route favored is twenty-one miles long The canal is intended as an offset t the Welland canal of the Canadian side of the falls. Under treaty provisions the United States is allowed to keep but one gunboat on the great lakes and it would be utterly impossible, be cause of this, to concentrate a squadron quickly and effectively in the event o war. It is also intended to protect Amer ican vessels against what is claimed t be unjust discrimination in violation o treaty stipulations by the Canadian government in the Welland canaL Th treaty with Canada provides that n discrimination shall be shown in th canal, but Canada allows a drawback o twenty per cent, on duties for every cargo landed in Canada. This is claimed to be an injustice to American vessels. The proposed canal is to be twenty feet deep. 100 feet wide at the bottom and its estimated cost is Si4.000.000. iii Ohio Gathered Into a Column. GREW POLITICS. DULLESTDAY YET.

DAYTON, O., April turns are late in coming in, owing to the city having been redistricted, in consequence of which there was only ono polling place in each ward. The Democrats have elected their entire city ticket and car- ried eleven out of fifteen wards. J. E. Ward, for mayor, had about 1.000 majority over Charles F.

XEW YORK, April to the 'atal shooting of Marshal England, and killing of three negroes whom tbe marshal was attempting to arrest, at Birmingham, Ala.. Sunday, a Herald special says: While not directly con- aected with the political trouble exist- ing at Birmingham, the citizens claim that the negroes have been incited by the Republicans. "White Caps are operating in Iron- Jale, a suburb of this city. The trouble krose in the election of a mayor and the appointment of a postmaster. James E. Weidman, Republican candidate for mayor, defeated C. A. Taunton, the Democratic candidate, by seven votes, and Taunton claimed that tbe Repub- licans bad run in negroes who were not entitled to vote, and a contest was in- stituted in the courts, resulting in the election being upheld. From this de- cision an appeal was taken to the Supreme Court. A lawyer named J. K. Carpenter acted as attorney. Jobn C. Weidman, tho father of tho mayor-elect, was appointed postmaster. The two Weidmans and Carpenter have received letters warning them to leave town. The post-office is being boy- cotted. _______________ OPINION S DIFFER As to the Passage of a Tariff at This Session of of Prominent People on the Subject. i WASHINGTON, April tive McMillan, one of tbe Democratic- members of tbe Ways and Means Com- mittee, is quoted as saying that he does not believe there will be any tariff leg- islation during the present session of Congress. He bases this opinion on the fact that the two parties are so widely divided on the subject and that there' are two or more factions in the Republi-3 can party on several irapo rtant sched- ules. It may be possible he says for the Republicans to force the McKinley bill through the House, but it will probably be so late in the present ses- sion that the Senate will not havo sufficient time to fully consider tho subject. On the other hand the Republican members of the Senate Committee on Finance say they will be ready to pass a bill almost as soon as they receive it from the [louse. Mr. Durfee, the clerk of the Finance Committee, is now bissy with the preliminary work on the bill, and the principal schedules will likely be agreed upon in the Senate Committee before the bill passes the House.
