The Edu- cational bill was then taken up and Mr. Teller addressed the Senate in its sup- port. Mr. Call gave written notice that would aak on Monday that the rulm ba modified so as to consider the nomina- tions of District Judge Swayne and Dis- trict Attorney Stripling, of Northern Florida, in open session. Resolutions on the death of the late Representative Townshend, of Illinois, were taken up and speeches in eulogy were delivered by Messrs. Cullom.Vest, Hale and Jones, of Arkansas. As a further mark of re- spect the Senate adjourned until Mon- day. HOtTSE. Mr. Perkins stated that an erroneous impression had gone out according to th. provisions of the Oklahoma bill passed Thursday, the Cherokee outlet had been declared open to settlement under the homestead laws The state- ment should have been that the public land the Cherokee outlet- had been opened to settlement. The Cherokee outlet is embraced within the limits of the new Territory but is not open to settlement under the homestead law. The bill authorizing the President to retire General John C. Fremont with the rank of Major General was taken up.

CLUBBED TO DEATH. Horrible Crime Perpetrated at New Al- bany, tnd. -Uriitul Murder of a Lady by Her NEW ALBAXV, Ind., March Ritter, a bad character of this city, was arrested Friday morning on the charge of murder. One hour before his arrest Mrs. Ellen Wheelon, his sister-in-law, was found clubbed to death, lying on the Jeffersonville, Madison Indianapolis railroad track. The sapposition is that Ritter kttled the woman at her resi- dence a short distance from the railroad and placed her on the track to make it appear that it was suicide, wiLh a view of hiding the crime. The web of cir- cumstantial evidence that was at the inquest was damaging in the treme. Ritter denies all knowledge ol the tragedy. The victim was twenty- five years old and was amongst the best known ladies of this city. There is talk o f lynching. Later developments show that Ritter attempted to outrage Mrs. Wheelon, bul she resisted and he brained her with a hatchet and carried the body to the rail road track, where it was found. INVADISrOME STRIP. of Eater the Land o: the Powerless to Prc vent the Moretnent. AKKAXSAS CITY, Ark., March 15. invasion of the Cherokee strip from thu district began at sunrise Friday morn- ing and all day the long lines of canvas covered prairie schooners drew theii lengths into the coveted land. It is es- timated that from the different points of entrance fully people have passed the border and half that numbei staked their claims. Dispatches frois Kiowa, Caldwell and Guthrie say thai about 800 boomers left each of points yesterday for the strip. Captain Burbank, in command of a small force of United States regulars at Oklahoma City, marched his force into the strip stay the progress of the boomers. So far as known this force had no effect in retarding the movement. Injunction NEW YORK, March argument on the motion of the New York Ball Club for a preliminary or tempo- rary injunction against the famous base ball player "Buck" Ewiogr, was heard before Judge Wallace yestcrdav. George F. Duyster appeared for the company and explained briefly why the action was begun. Judge Bacon appeared for Ewing and said the prosecution of Ewing was part of conspiracy. Mr. Choate followed for the plaintiff and made a strong argument in favor of tho reserve rule. Decision was reserved. Weekly Reaume of the State Business. Yolnue of Transactions Continues trtordinuily Large, tat With Small Pronto. TOTDKB A. IA3TDSLCDJB. lllri Marfceta Weak of 8U1I Farther ta PrtoM. NEW YORK, March G. Dun it Co.'s Weekly Review ot Trade says: There was not enough of the belated winter to make good losses sustained by restricted demand lor seasonable goods, or to prevent large failure, but the. colder weather helped a little in many branches of trade while it lasted. Now great floods in the Mississippi valley in- terfere with distribution and threaten serious disasters. On the other hand, the money market has been relieved by treasury disbursements and by another reduction in the rate by the Bank of En- gland. The volume of business contin- ues extraordinarily New York clearings exceeded lust year's by five per cent., at Chicago by seventeen and at all other points by fifteen. The in- crease in railroad earnings for February was about twelve per cent. It is diffi- cult at times to reconcile these proofs of large business with the expressions of disappointment so of ten heard, unless it is remembered that prices are low and the margin for profits very narrow. The weekly output of iron furnaces in blast March 1 was tons, against January 1 and a year ago. With a production exceeding that of a year ago more than twenty per cent., and already at the rate of tons yearly, the tone of the market has been weaker and prices have again declined. A reduction of in the price of Bir- mingham iron, so that iVts now offered in eastern markets fifty cents below similar iron from Pennsylvania, com- pels sellers to make concessions and causes a nervous feelmjr. Whether the break of ten cents in a week in the price of Tennessee coal and iron stock has any connection with this reduction in price can not be stated. Rails are quoted half a dollar lower and one lot is said to be for sale at S34. The demand for bar iron is better, but on the wbob there is as yet a lack of evidence that the country can consume all it is now producing and lower prices are appiehended. There is no set back as yet in the coif ton manufacture. Goods are in steady and fair demand, but obtainable return scanty profits with material at present cost. !No change appears in the wool and woolen trades. In boots and. shoes'buyers are numerous, and leather is steady with fair demand, but hides are quiet. More sales are noted of rub- ber goods, and the demand for building materials of all sorts continues large, with prices tending upward. Reports from other cities indicate some improvement in the volume of trade. At all points reporting any change in collections they are more sat- isfactory, and the western money mar- kets are all fairly supplied. Xew Association of Wool BOSTON.
