SEH The lotion offered by Mr. Chandler censuring Mr Call was taken up yesterday and Mr. moved iu reference to Committee on PriTi- and Elections. Mr. that the "Washington Post contained an article with headlines: "Call's Bitter Remarks He Slipped a Paragraph Into the Congressional Record.- That, Mr. Call Mid. a falsehood. He had into the Coafreuional Record nothlnf that had not been, in substance, uttered on the floor of the Senate H- gave notice to the Sena- tor from New Hampshire, who had arraigned him bj the resolution, that he (Mr Call) would arraign, him (Mr. Chandler) before the Senate, and would demand an investigation by the com- mittee tor making an accusation that un- true. He (Mr. Call) would convict the Senator on evidence of his own that did hear and know that Mr. Gill had ir.teredon the floor of the Senate substantially the whole of the charge contained in the paragraph. Hs would mot ask the censure by the of the Senator from New Hampshire, but he would leave to the just judgment of public opinion his remarks, having had neither the courag j nor the manhood to re- Seot them. Mr. Sherman declared that the rules of the Senate had ;ustberu violated by the Senator from Florida in as gross a manner as he had ever witnessed. When thp Senate of the CTnitet} States came to a condition that the charge of cowardice cou'd he applied to a Senator and that a Senator could be charged with stating a thing falsely, it seemed to Mm that the Senate was receding from tue dijfuhy which had dis- tinguished it from the foundation of the Gov- ernment. Mr. Sherman's motion to refer the resolution to the Committee on Privileges and Elections was agreed to. The following bill passed: Granting a pension of S10.I a montU to the widow of Major Ueneral Kilpatrick. The Educational bill was up and Mr. Coke addressed the Senate in opposition to it. He said the bill violated the Constitution, and as a measure of polier was unwise and mis- chievous. Mr. Stanford spoke in favor of the bill and the Senate adjourned. Tne bill to dis'-ontmue the coinage of II aad 13 gold p'ecos and nickel pieces was p.-ssed Mr. Bartine of Nevada, called up toe bill to p ,rmit tho Director of the Mint to make Chang 'S in the designs on current coins of tbe United States. Mr. Bartine said the only alteration which he knew of that was now in a change of the de- sign of the eagle on silver dollars. Mr. Paysjn, of Il.inois suggested that, as now designed, too closely resembled a buzzard. The bill was p-'ssed. The House went into Committee of the Whole on the Oklahoma bill. A motion by Mr. Hooker to strike out the section of the bill fil- ing the boundary of the new Territory so as to include the Cherokee outlet, led to a long dis- cussion. The mnfon was defeated. Jfeuding farther action the House adjourned. AGAIN TO THE FJKONT. Favorable Report on HIU to Pay French Spoliation Claims, Dating Back Nearly Ninety Tears. WASHINGTON, Feb. 36. The House Committee on Claims has authorized a favorable report on a bill providing' for the payment of the French spoliation claims. The history of these remark- able claims, which aggregate dates back to 1802 when they were first reported to the House by Representa- tive Giles. Since that time they have been reported to the House favorably several times. Twice bills for the re- lief of these claimants have passed both houses, one being vetoed by President Polk and one by President Pierce. The claims originated during the war between France and England, when tho United States failed to comply with the guaranty contained in the treaty of al- liance with France. France retaliated by the destruction of thousands of our vessels and the confiscation of their cargoes. __ CITY UNDER WATER. Hamilton. O-. Suffers From a Rite la the Miami Highest Water Known In Twenty Twars. HAMILTON-, O., Feb. The water in the Big Miami river is higher than it has been known to be in the last twenty years. The Strftub House, one of the principal hotels in this city, is sur- rounded by water, which has submerged the basement and covers the floors of the first story. All the business houses and residences on the west side of the river are flooded and the tenants have been obliged to remove their household goods to higher grounds. The torrent from above early last evening brought down, a number of farmhouses. Between five and six o'clock the rise of the river at this point was twenty-four inches, the greatest ever known in the satae length of tine. There arc indications of more rain and the prospect is that the flood will be greatly augmented. Appeal K N. Y., Feb. in tho Court of Appeals yesterday.

They Mmmt W aad In rate and all Local tftuUtary bttloiu Strictly ObMrvod. WASHESGTON, Feb. Secre- tary of Agriculture has just issued an order to the managers and agents of railroad and transportation companies in regard to the transportation and handling of Texas cattle, directing that no cattle are to be transported from the infected area to any portion of the United States, except in accordance with certain regulations which are to remain in force from March 15 to De- cember 1, 1890. These regulations pro- vide that all such cattle unloaded at any point outside of the area decribed, to be fed and watered, must be so fed and watered in places set apart for this ex- clusive use, and to which no other cat- tle shall be admitted, and which must be thoroughly disinfected once a week during the continuance of this order. On arriving at their destination these cattle shall be received into pens specially set apart for them, from which all other cattle are to be rigidly ex- cluded, and all regulations relating to the movement of Texas cattle pre- scribed by the sanitary officers of the State where unloaded must be carefully observed. Moreover the cars used in transporting said stock must be cleansed and disinfected before used to transport or shelter animals again. Should such cattle be reshipped from any point where they have been unloaded to an- other destination, the car in which they are carried must bear a placard stating that it contains Southern cattle, and the way-bills must bear a note to the same effect. The regulations as to separate pens applies also to cattle reshipped. Secretary Rusk calls attention to the grave losses entailed upon owners of Northern cattle from contact of their Cattle with Southern cattle and through infected cars, and enjoins a rigid com- pliance with the above regulations, which he believes will insure compara- tive safety to Northern cattle and avoid the necessity of more stringent regula- tions. BANQUET. Superb Dinner Given by Andrew Carnegie to the President, HU Cabinet and the Pan-American Feb. The dinner given last night by Andre-.f Carnegie to the President and Cabinet and the dele- gates and officers of the International American Conference was probably the most superb affair of the kind evergiven in the United States. The novel and unique arrangements planned by him were ctirried out by William E. Curtis, the executive officer of the international conference. The effects in floral decora- tion and table service were superb. The walls of the new square dining room at the Arlington Hotel were literally banked with spring flowers until it looked like a scene from fairyland. The table was an exact circle, thirty-six feet in diameter. Covers were laid for forty- eight gentlemen. KEAPY TO BE HANGED. Almost Completed for the Execution of George Clark at burf Pa. Fears of Trouble. WATXESBURG, Pa., Feb. 2G. A story was current that George Clark, the con- demned murderer, had taken poison, but the rumor is denied by the jail offi- cials. The Governor has refused to fur- ther respite the man and he will be hanged to-day. Work was commenced on the scaffold Tuesday morning. Clark's wire has arrived here. His father sent word that he will not come. Clark was Convicted on circumstantial evidence, and the people are about evenly divided as to his guilt.

Tragedy IB a CeaMtoiy at Kew Ind of of y., Feb. While the Storm was at its height shortly after midnight Tuesday morning, a horrible tragedy took place in the cemetery at New Albany. A party of grave robbers were surprised in the act of desecrating the resting places of the dead and one Of them was instantly killed. Three others were arrested and placed in jail, but a fourth man escaped. The party consisted of three Louisville physicians J. T. Blackburn, Dr. W. E. Grant, another whose name is unknown and three colored assistants. They had gone over to rob the graves of tho corpses of Thomas Johnson and Edward Pearce, which had been buried last Sunday, and had deliberately planned the affair, but a little carelessness on their part spoiled every thing and led to the death of one of the negro helpers, whose name is un- known. The plot had been given away to the officers by a boy named Peebles, who took a bribe and pointed out the graves to the officers of the cemetery. When the ghouls arrived at the grave of John- son a voice called out: "Throw up your hands." Taken utterly by surprise, the men started to run and as they did so there was a volley. One of the men fell. As b.e dropped to the ground the light- ning flashed on a pistol he had drawn, hut had not tried to use and he died without a struggle. The guards closed quickly around their prisoners and took them' to jail, with the dead man. The coroner will hold an inquest over the re- mains of the negro, when it is thought he be identified.

Inter-Ocean "This end of strife U only tto of work. To ready for a Fair worthy the oocMiott. country and the city will be a Twt and Arduous labor. We have full confidence in the ability of Chicago to bear worthily the burden thus put upon it. From the first our people hare taken a thoroughly practical riew of the matter and not trusted to noise or bluster. Enthusiasm is a good thing in its way, but, like the fine words of the proverb, it 'butters no parsnips.' Chicago must show to the world that America has made no mis- take in entrusting the expositional cele- bration of tie four hundredth anniver- sary of its discovery to the imperial city of the interior." The Tribune says: "It does not need much search to find out why Chicago won. The principal reason was that no other city has the same qualifications. The moment it was decided that the fair should American, not foreign; national, not provincial; depending for its success on the citizens of the New World and not the old, the selection ol any other place than this became a practical impossibility. Tbe popular rerdict was for Chicago and tbe House would not venture to set it aside." The Times says: "In giving the World's Fair to Chicago Congress has done wisely and well. It has put in formal shape the Terdict of the Ameri- can people upon this question. It haa voiced the unmistakable decision of the republic. After all, however, it is not Congress that has made Chicago the site for the Columbian celebration, but the immutable logic and propriety of facts. Sectional dis appointment will not last a day. New York, St. Louis and ington will be as loyal and as earnest for the American fair here as Chicago would have been for it anywhere else." The Globe says: "Our delegates and friends in Washington performed a splendid day's work Monday, and de- serve the warmest praise for their abil- ity and steadfast earnestness. It re- mains for the whole peo pie of Chicago to fulfill to the utmost the pledges that have been made in, their name and to" carry forward to a glorious success the grand work assi gned them by the gen- erous confidence of Congress." The Herald says: "Chicago has se- cured the World's Fair of 1892. The triumph was expected and deserved. It eame in the natural order. It is a new and gallant achievement for a city which is beginning to take all sorts of success very much as a matter of course. Henceforth let no mean spirited citizen of this republic question manifest des- tiny or rail at accomplished facts. Chi- cago's supremacy will presently he_ac- kno wledged even by its most inveterate foes." TILDEN'8 MILMO3TS. Contest Orer tlia Will of the Dead States- man to be A Compromise Be- tween Executors and NEW YOBK, Feb. Negotiations have been opened between the executors of Samuel J. Tildon and his heirs-at- law for a se ttlement of the contest over the will. It is understood that the es- tate has proved to be much larger than was at first supposed; that the aggre- gate is nearer than and that the executors, finding them- selves be atcn in the Supreme Court, are willing to give up the fight in the courts if the heirs will agree to devote to the establishment of a public library in accordance with Mr. Tilden's wishes. As the estate is large enough to provide for that and make them all millionaires besides, it is said that the heirs are willing to entertain the propo- sition. Cyclone In Kentucky. HorKrssvrLLK, Ky..
