The districts are to consist of contiguous territory and no district to have more than one member. A district is not to be divided unless its population exceeds by one-sixteenth the number necessary to entitle it to representation, except in states electing representatives by towns and no district is to contain more than one-twentieth more or less inhabitants than the number necessary to entitle it to a representative. The districts are to be composed of compact territory, bounded as neariy as may be bv civil subdivisions or national boundaries. There is to be a national board of five members, four politically divided and the other a judge of the supreme, bisti ii t, or circuit, or I nited States court'., appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate, to act in case of failure to act or disagreement, of the state boards. The districts made by these boards are to remain intact until the next census apportionment. NO APOLOGIES TO MAKE. Ex-Assist ant Post mauler General Clarkson Satisfied With His Record. Washington, Sept. 12.—A delegation of Maryland republican clubs called on ex-Assistaut Postmaster General Clarkson to-day, and presented a resolution thanking him for his expressed opposition to tilt* civil service jaw. Clarkson made a brief address iii reply, in which he said he was not opposed to a reformed civil service nor to one made intelligent in the most practical degree. He added he believed this to be a representative government on party responsibility; therefore he believed any administration, state, national or county was entitled to have all the places under it lilied by its friends or those anxious for its success and not its failure. Referring to an allusion to his record in changing democratic for republican postmasters, he said he could not liave displaced democrats if Cleveland's reform administration had not put democrats in and republicans out. He added that he had no apologies to make to any one for the democrats he had removed from office. THE FLOOD CATES OPEN. Immense Damage by Heavy Rains in the East and South.

The question then recurred on the approval of the journal, but the quorum disappeared and a call of the house was ordered. One hundred and seventy-five members responded to their names, but on approval of the journal these had dwindled down to 142, no quorum, and on motion of McKinley tin* house adjourned. Tin* Senate. Washington, Sept. 12.—The senate to-day passed a number of bills on tile calendar and then took up the railroad land forfeiture bill. Morgan continued his argument in opposition to it. He was followed by Sanders in favor of the conference report, the main point of his contention being that lands actually patented to railroad companies could not be taken from them because they turned out to be mineral lands. Ilearst took the contrary view and insisted that mineral lands were specially reserved by original grants. Sanders said iii the courts of Washington and California and the supreme court of the United States tile term “mineral lands*’ has been held to mean lands commercially valued for mining purposes. Without concluding hi-argument. Sander- yielded for an executive session and the senate soon adjourned. Husk Discusses Hie Crop Question. Washington, Sept 12.—Secretary Rusk, in an interview with a reporter today. upon the excitement in the grain markets, caused by the fear of short crops, said:    “Of    course, the fact that there was a slight falling off in th*1 quantity of crops had an effect upon the markets; but the tendency lias been upward so far as prices are concerned, on all cereals. I attribute the increase to other causes than a shortage in crops. The statement that this has been the lightest yield for twenty years I cannot agree with. This may be the case with the barley crop. The shortage in the yield of some cereals was anticipated iii the June report.” “You do not apprehend any squeeze?" “Why, not a bit. The government reports have considerable influence in checking any complicated corner, and everybody is enabled to know the precise condition of th** crops.” “Is it a fact that tile report is the most unfavorable ever issued?” “Not at all. The cotton crop is extraordinarily good. Oats are probably lower than they have been for twenty years. but that is the only weak point, with the exception of the barley crop, which was very prolific last year, however. “How is the quality?” “Uniformly fair, except, as I have stated, with oats, which are not only short but poor in quality. 1 think this country should raise less wheat and import less barley. We export wheat and import barley and there is not a reason why we should not raise it all." AT CRESSON SPRINGS. Heavy Ruins in Northern Ohio. CixciNNat, Sept. 12.—Dispatches from northern Ohio show heavy rains. At Bucyrus four inches of rainfall was reported yesterday. Tile Sandusky river was so high as to cut off communication with North Bucyrus. At Akron tho rainfall wa- disastrous. Great damage was done throughout, the country, and in th*; city unusual destruction was wrought. Nortn Howard street, one of the principal businc-s streets, was fearfully washed. In some places a portion of the street railway was left with the tie-in the air. hanging by the rails. The main sewer was exposed and water pipe-torn out. Railway travel is almost suspended. The Siroto river is at a very high stag*'. All low farm lands north and south of tile city are immersed and the loss to crops i- heavy. Much other damage ii as been done. 9100,000 Damage By Kail).

Chagrin in Turkey Over Salisbury’s Refusal to Withdraw Troops from Egypt—The Relations Between Russia anti Germany. London, Sept. 12.—Russia is acting as if she wanted to pick a quarrel with Bulgaria. arid Premier Stambouloff appears not to be anxious to shirk the issue. The Bulgarian government has refused to pay the total amount of the claim presented by Russia for payment of arms and ammunition supplied to Bulgaria during the war with Turkey, on the ground that the amount due is 100,000 roubles less than j the sum demanded. Tile claim, it is be- j lieved, would never have been presented ' but for the czar’s hostility toward Bulgaria. Much chagrin is felt in Turkey over the virtual refusal of Lord Salisbury to withdraw tile British troops from Egypt on the ground that the country had not vet sufficiently progressed to ju>-tify their withdrawal. The Turkish government has at last given satisfaction to Servia by sentencing to death the murderer of tile Servian consul at Pustend and imposing lighter sentences on ins accomplices. Belat Ions Between Russia anil Germany. London, Sept. 12.—The relations between Russia and Germany do not appear to be much improved by Emperor William’s late visit. A dispatch from Berlin states, in regard to the prosecution of Lutherans in tile Baltic provinces of Russia, that three pastors have been banished and sixty-six are on trial, mostly on trivial charges. The Russian government is doing all it. can to stamp out the Lutheran religion, as tile members of that church are suspected of leaning toward Germany. The czar, it is known, felt particularly sore at William's insisting on landing in that part of his dominions. instead of, as requested, steaming up tin* Neva to St. Petersburg. The people of these provinces are German in race and language, as well as Lutheran religion. RAMPAGING REVOLUTIONISTS. Tin1 Rio Grande on tile Rampage—Much Destruction to Property. Sr. Loris, Sept.. 12.—Dispatches from Texas say the Rio Grande is on the rampage. At Eagle Pass it is higher than it has been for ten years.

About one hundred feet of iron trestle approach to the new bridge crossing the river was carried down yesterday with the offices • if the custom and quarantine guards, and several others to til*1 railroad bridges a mile below, where people, who were in the trestle at the time, were rescued from the wreck. The river is -till rising and the entire trestle, which is I.loo feet long, is in danger of being swept away. All communication with Piedras Negras on til*1 Mexican side of the river is broken and the track of th*1 Mexican International railway is washed out and travel is suspended. He is Severely Repremanded by tile Methodist Conference, but Forgiven. Muskegon, Mich., Sept. 12.—The committee appointed by til** Methodist Episcopal conference to investigate the Pa--tor Arnee horse racing case, reported today. Arney, quite at variance with hi-tbrents, confessed to having committed a very imprudent act when lie participated in a hors*1 race. He sincerely regret ted til** notoriety caused by the transaction. He kept horses for p**r--onal pleasure and exercise and th*- possibility of premiums and profits by their sale, after being properly trained, lie added that as long as lie lives he will never participate in a horse race again. The conference accepted the report and Arney's character was allowed to pass. RAGING RIVERS. Portions of Pennsylvania Heavy Rains.

Cresson Springs, Sept. 12.—That the president is taking a deep interest in tho financial situation is shown by the fact that he devoted nearly two hours this afternoon to telegraphic correspondence with Secretary Windom, at Williamstown, Massachusetts, and Assistant Secretaries Batchellor and Nettleton, at Washington, as to the best means of relieving the present stringency in the money market. One of the results of the conference was the order for the prepax-ment of interest aggregating five millions of dollars on currency sixes and for an advance in the rate for four poi cent bonds to SI.25. Another question considered was the propriety of suggesting the extension of bonded per cents under tile proposed new tariff law-, but. no conclusion was reached on this point. The latest advices received by the president were to the effect, that money was easier at the close of business and the outlook more favorable. I he president and Mrs. Harrison took a long drive this afternoon. ILLINOIS METHODISTS. List of Young Ministers to Be Received Into Full Membership. Jacksonville, 111., Sept. 12.

The Shenango river is also rising rapidly and will be all over the bottom land to-night. Advices from Charleston. W. Va., say a sudden rise in tile Gauley river yesterday carried away thirty-one coal barges all loaded, of which eleven, valued at 850,-000, were lost.

Colon, which reached her*1 to-day, brought some of tii** pawn- : gers who were on board the steamship I Acapulico at til** tim*1 of the killing of I General Barrundia. One of tho eye-wit- I nows of the tragedy told the story loan I Associated Press representative. It ap-pears that General Barrundia carne on I board at Acapulico, New Mexico, under- ; stood to be on his way to San Salvador, j He xvas attended by two a> body guards, j When the ship arrived at Chanporico, 1 til** Guatemala authorities tiler** demanded that Barrundia bo surrendered. ('apt. Pitts peremptorily refused to do so. j They withheld the clearance papers for4! twenty-four hours, hut finally allowed him to proceed. When til*1 vessel arrived at San Jose two boat loads of soldiers wen* sent off from Giore to see that no one without proper credentials should leave th** vessel. Within pistol-shot of her xvere two Fnited State- gunboats. Captain Pitt* had telegraphed their commanding officer from Chanper-ieo, requesting assistance, but th** dispatch had not been delivered. Noxv he made a personal appeal for help. The response wa« that they could do nothing without order from the captain. Th*1 next day the ship xva- again invaded by the commandant** with a special force of men and another boat load of soldier-. The Guatemalan commandante produced an “order of arr**>t" signed by American Minister Mizner and made formal demand for the delivery of Barrundia. Then he directed that all tile cabin passengers be ordered below. When this order xvas executed the entire force proceeded to Barrundia's room. Captain Pitts with them. When the room was reached. Captain Pitts, after deprecating the necessity of surrendering his passen-g^. read the order for arrest. Barrundia had quietly met them at the door, but at once divining, all xvas over, reached into the room fora revolver, and making the remark “Very good," tired. The ball just missed Capain Pitts, who, together with tile Guatemalan commandant*1, ran to his room, locked the door and hid under the bed, leaving the man-hunting to special officers. Barrundia was a short-sighted man, and being very nervous, was unable to do any damage, though he chased the men out of the saloon, firing wildly. At last they dropped him, riddled with shot, on th** hurricane deck. The bravo commander, Pitts, thereupon came from his hiding place, walked up to the dead man and fired a bullet into his head. The dead body was rolled up in a piece of canvas and conveyed on shore in one of the boats. Til** other boat, conveying th** gallant perpetrators of the deed, their revolvers openly displayed. made a detour around by th** Fnited States war ships. As they left the Acapulico, some smilingly waved their hands, one placed his thumb to his nose and extended his fingers in a wellknown manner. Still the incident was not over. said the gentleman who told the foregoing. The Guatemalans had to wipe their feet a little more on the suffering ship. and she was not allowed to proceed until the baggage belonging to Barrundia was searched, presumably for evidence incriminating others. This was submitted by the American gun-boats, still silent, not a hundred yards away. Indeed, at the time of tile tragedy, an officer from one of them was on board the Acapulice. The Americans on board were full of indignation and shame at the whole affair. Captain Pitts, it was generally held, was partly excusable for his action, seeing he had applied in vain to the warships for assistance and was confronted with an order from tile American minister. The passengers condemned the action of the men of the warships, for they maintain in any event they might have taken N'®v»«li» D®m<><rat*.
