l'oieT AL' I'hixck, Jan. 1!). The steam
ship liny tun Ri-puldic wna run into by
the Jfjiyticn gunboat Novclle Voldrogue
on the night of December 20, inflicting
hut slight injuries to cither vessel, Tho
Jbiythn gunboat was entering the harbor
at full spet.-.l and could hiive steamed to
her anchorage without any change of
course, but when within 200 yards of the
1 I iy ticn K-ublie her helm was suddenly
put to port and remained so until she
struc k that vessel. The gunboat was
hailed, but no answer was made, neither
did In r -i.t lin attempt to ascertain the
amount of damage done or offer assist-
anee. After ascertaining the damage
done the Galena sent an armed boat's
new to the offending gunboat, where the
stat' iiu iif wan m ule that the jamming of
the tiller ropes was the cause of the col
lisiou. It is the opinion that it was a
deliixT.'ttr attempt to sink the released
ship. It is a question whether the scheme
was by other authority than the captain
f the gunboat.
The board of the (lalena's oflicer9 met
next day and a demand for an investiga
tion was made upon the Ilaytien govern
ment. These reports will be considered
and redress demanded.

DARIMC POLITICAL SCHEME.
A Councllmanlac Reyoliftign,
Takes Pjace jn Bogton.
Boston," Mass., Jap' 19. There was n
remarkable action in the common couu
cil last night. The democrats have one
majority in that body, but when it was
organized last week two of the demo
cratic members voted with the republ
cans and aided them in making Horace
Allen president At last night's meeting
some of tho democrats saw that they
were in a decided majority, some of the
members being absent, and they proceed
ed to unseat the two democrats who
voted with the republicans, now propose
to depose President Allen, there being
no provision in tUe city charter to pre
vent such action, and put a democrat in
the chair. The daring of the scheme
rivals anything Tammany ever conceived
and what makes it more exasperating,
the citizens' hands are tied. The out
come of it will probably be the ultimate
abolishing of that branch of the city
council. Sentiment is setting strongly
in that direction.

revival was being conducted and came
to St. Joseph. The eloping couple repre

obtained a marriage license, and quietly
left the city.
In the meanwhile the revival .is going

Editor Shuman Retires.
Chicago, Jan. 19. Gov Shuman, who
for nearly thirty-three years has been
connected with the Chicago Evening
Journal, today retired from tho editor
ship of the paper on account of ill health,
and the positive orders of his physician.
Governor Shuman has not been well for
the past two years, and in that time has
been compelled to do very little work,
the entire management of thejflrm having
been in the hands of Mr. Wilson, the
publisher of the paper, and of Mr. Sulli
van, its managing editor. In announcing
his retirement Governor Shuman says:
"The Journal will continue to be, as
for many years it has been, a careful and
trustworthy newspaper. Being well as
sured of his fapt, thn undersigned drops
out of its working force with the same
sense of resignation that the head of a
fam'ly feels when laying down the bur
dens of his life and is aware that his
heirs will prove worthy of the inheritence
he leaves behind him."
Mr. Shuman retains his financial inter
est in the paper and remains president of
the Evening Jfournal company.

A $180,000 Appropriation.
Lincoln, Jan. 18, 1889.
Editor IIehald: The third week of
the Twenty first sessson is drawing to a
close. Some members are busy making
records while others are discussing the
question of adjourning over until Mon
day next. An adjournment until Monday
will be opposed by some in a business
like manner, while the "watch dogs"
will distingush themselyes by a terrilic
racket forthe benefit of constituents from

of acting or voicing an untruth. It is a
fortunate circumstance for our canine
friend, the American Watch dog, that
the naturalists did not stray into Nebras

Today, just before recess, the senate
passed house rolls 100 and 101, appro
priating one hundred and eighty thous
and dollars to pay all salaries of officers,
membeis and employes of the legislature
and all incidental expenses. The senate
has under advisement several house rolls
and is working steadily and harmoniously
in the regular routine of official business.
Yesterday the house, in committee of
the whole, killed the bill requiring and
compelling all railroads to sell tickets at
all stations to every point on 'their line
and compelling all trains to stop for
passengers. Ihe bill was reierreu uacK
to the committee on railroads with the
enacting clause 6tricken out. There is in
the house a reminder of the great demo
cratic statesman irom Otoe in the shape
of a bill to pay Ebenezer R. Hoar, of
Ccncord, Mass., two thousand dollars for
professional services rendered, and ex
penses incurred in'the case of Morton
vs. Nebraska, in the Supreme court of the
United States. It brings back to one's

Again, John L. Webster, appointed by

of April next, has been cirevdatiflg around

appropriate the trilling sum of ten thous
and dollars, or thereabeuts, in order that
several score of the call.o 7 th of

they had best go down into thsir jeans

else call on the citizens of Omaha for

from, fepvesentacion there in such manner
will be infinitesimal. Nebraska is an
agricultural state and such sturdy farmers

far more fitting representatives of her

About five thousand copies of the
governor's biennial message and inaug

MUSIC IN RUSSIA.
Congrcgutioual Singing Forbidden In tb
It is a singular fact that in Greek
and Russian churches conerrec-ntional
singing is absolutely forbidden. The
music is sung in four-part harmony,
without instrumental accompaniment,
by the priest choir, to a silent congre
gation. The priests maintain that this
custom is in strict accordance with the
earliest and purest form of Christian
worship. Furthermore, the congrega
tion was forbidden to sing by an ordi
nance of the council of Ladoika, in
tho year 3G4, the reason assigned being
that the Christian tunes even at that
remote period had become corrupted,
"every man singing his own version
in violation of decency and concord."
This singing with the spirit and under
standing also is pertainly conducive to
a more worthy and reverent celebra
tion of praise, as many of those who
aro condemned to listen to the un
couth noises indulged in by many
earnest though musically undisci
plined Christians of tho present day
ore wont to declare.

destitute of rhythm. There are eight
of them in use, which are chanjred
every week, and all of them are stated
to have been the work of bt. John, of
Damascus, and have gained their
oriffinal tprea ever since. 1 hrouffhout
Russia tho same ritual music is used in
every church with desirable uniform
ity. Some of these melQUiea were
printed in 77 and have since been
reDroduced in modern notation. As a
rule, they are sung by four male
voices with magnificent effect.
The quality of men's voices in Rus
sia, especially basses, is exceptionally
tine, some 01 the basses being of such
unusual depth that they have a snecial
part assigned them, ah octave below
the yeai part.' These are called "oc
tavists,' and not a few of them can
take the F below CO. Such excep
tional YQicej3 are found chiefly in
North Russia, where contralto voices
of unusual depth and sonority are also
to be met with. The tenors and male
and femalo sopranos for the most part
come from the southern tuvriion of the

memoerts of this imperial choir are
carefully selected, have no, other occu
pation, and preserve their voices with
the utmost caro. They study vocaliza
tion for an hour and a half daily un
der Italian masters, besides receiving
regular instruction in church style
under native teachers. Several mod

fugal Imitation is rare, the voices mov

pre&erving tho characteristics of the
old church chant. It is a wise enact
ment that no church music can ha
printed or performed in Russia until
has first received tho. sanction, pf the
proper authorities.' " By such means its
purity " is preserved intact. Von
Moltke, the veteran general, asserts
that "the music of the Russian church
is as far removed from the meager
hymns of Piotestantism as frcan tho.
operatic music of tho Roman Catholic
church-" H certainly does possess a
distinctive character, and is eminently
fitted to its purpose. Its simple dignity
