which will enable stockmen to turn off
fat beef in the fall.

to appear before Archbishop Hennessey

April 12, to answer the charges preferred
against him by nine priests of his diocese.
These are the charges filed June 20 last
with Mgr. Satolli, and by him referred
to Archbishop Hennessey for hearing
thereon. Both sides are ready for trial,
but the accusing priests are not satisfied
with the choice of Omaha as the place of
trial. A meeting of the clergy- was held,
at which it was decided to ask the Arch
bishop to transfer the hearing to Lincoln
on the ground that most of the witnesses
reside in or near this city, and any ad
ditional burden of expense upon the
pritsts, who have already made great
outlay to prepare for trial, would be an
unjust hardship.

point of order on the question of but one
teller acting. On a rising vote the
journal was approved, and on a call of

Reed regarding the speaker's ruling, Mr.

voted down. The vote on approving the

out of order and the speaker refused to
entertain an appeal and refused to Btate
the ground of refusal, holding that no
member has a right to inquire the
grounds of a decision any more than a
lawyer had to demand the same thing of

interest in the senate Monday centered
in the speech of Senator Voorhees. the

who thus launched the tariff Question
upon the sea of senatorial debate. While
his speech was read from mannscrint. it
was delivered with all the fiery energy
which characterizes his usual extempo

full attendance, both on the floor and in
the galleries, and the conclusion of his
peech was greeted with a hearty Durst
of applause. He lauded the Walker tar
iff bill of 1848 as "blessed and glorious
memory," and regretted exceedinglythat
this bill did not more closely resemble
it. He vigorously defended the iscone
tax feature and the free wool clause, asd
as vigorously condemned the sugar bona

aad a fraud." The latter was "
stitutioaal freak." He called
to the fact that Monday was the

St. Louis, April . General Frye's
army of unemployed workmen arrived
at Jefferson Barracks from Poplar BIulE
today and are now camped ia the rail
road yards at Ivory station. The army
presented a picturesque sight as the train
pulled in. The commonwealers were all
on top of the box cars, many dressed in
blankets to ward off the cold, for which
they were unprepared. There were 18
cars in the train, some loaded with cat
tle. Over the car in which General
Frye's headquarters were, floated the
American flag. Old Glory wa3 saluted
by a company of United States regulars
as the train came to a stand before the
barracks' platform. These same regu
lars, while very friendly inclined toward
the industrial army, had orders to pre
vent them from getting off their train,
and their orders were promptly carried
out. There were 600 men ia Frye's ar
my in all and they appeared to be a well
disciplined and respectable lot of men.
A squad of-police from the city under
Captain Sam Boyd met the army at the
barracks and escorted them to their
quarters at Ivory station. Captain Boyd
requested General Frye to keep his men
together. The general st once posted
pickets about his camp, while Captain
Boyd and Captain Young posted police
officers and detectives at every road lead
ing into Carondelet with orders not to
let any of the army get into the city.
After getting into camp breakfast was
cooked, consisting largely of corn meal
mush, of which there was scarcely
enough to go around.
