THE ACTS OF CONGRESS.
SUCCINCT SUMMARY OF A WEEK'S
Hills and Resolutions introduced and Top
ics Discussed by tlu National Rodr of
In the senate on the 28th in connection
with a resolution in relation to the Missis
sippi river a discussion sprung up and was
participated in by many senators, the point
turning on the question whether the levee
system or outlet system whs a cor
rect one or whether thuro should
not bo combination of the two. Senator
Vest said congress should adopt one sys
tem or the other. Senator lCeagau said
his investigations had convinced him that
the levee system was n failure, as it had
been proved in the Yellow river of China,
where the river raised nnd devastating
overflows caused the loss of millions
of lives. The outlet system was
the true relief for the overflows ot the
Mississippi. After further discussion
the business of the morning
hour was proceeded with. Sen
ator Blackburn introduced a bill for
the admission of Aricona. Inferred. The
land forfeiture bill was taken up and, after
some discussion, went over without action.
The senato bill incorporating the society
of tho Sons of the American Involution
was read. Senator Plumb mado some
satirical remarks about tho efforts to en
courage patroitism "lying around loose in
the country," nnd moved to amend the bill
by providing that its privilege be extended
to the Grauil Aniii. No quorum voted,
and without actiou on the bill the senato
In tho house on tho 26th the conference
report on tho Fremont, Neb., public build
ing bill was agreed to. The limit of cost
of the building is :?0,(i('0. The message
of the president, returning without his ap
proal the bill to allow Ogden, Utah, to
increase its indebtedness n referred to
the committee on territories. The logibla
tive, executive and judicial appropriation
bills pabbed without division. Tho houhe
then went into committee of the whole
on bills relating to the District of
Columbia. The pending bill was for the
establishment of Kock Creek park. In the
course of debate Mr. Hooker, of Missis
sippi, alluded to the confederate graves in
Arlington cemetery, on the headboards of
which are carved the word "lebcl." Ho did
not object to this. "Jfebol" was n-t a
word of reproach. It onl. showed that
they wore tho men who were led by the sec
ond great rebel of America, Robert E.
Lee, George 'Washington having been tho
first. Tho committee having risen tho
Kock Creek park bill was defeated. Mr.
Hemphill, of South Carolina, moved a re
consideration and the house adjourned.
In the senate on the 2'Jth, after "the
transaction of some routine business of
unimportant public impoitnucc. considera
tion of the land forfeit tiro bill was re
sumed. Senator Plumb discussed Scnutor
Call's amendments as to lands in Florida.
Senator Piatt interruptedtoofTcr a concur
rent resolution, which was agreed to, re
questing thi president to return the
Oklahoma bill. He explained that owing
to an error of his own the word "west" had
been used in the place of "east" in the dis
cretion of the boundaries.
Consideration of the laud foreiture bill
was resumed. On the motion to lay Sena
tor Call's amendment on the table no
quorum voted yeas, 27; nays, 14 but as a
call of the senate showed tho presence of
rift-two members Senator Sher
man rose and said that when
ever a quorum was present and
the vote did not disclose that fact ho should
insist upon the sensible rule that the sena
tors present and nof voting should bo
counted. After some debate a vote was
again taken and Senator Call's amendment
was laid on the table by a strict party vote
'-yeas, 510; nays, IS. Senator
Moody offered an amendment,
which was agreed to, declaring the art not
to be considered to confer any right on
any state, corporation or person to tho
lands accepted in tho grants. Tho bill
then passed without division. Senator
McFhersou introduced a bill granting n
pension of .iiOO a year to tno widow of
Gen. McClelian. Keferred. Tho senate
then proceeded to the consideration of the
McKinley administrative customs bill,
after which the senate adjourned.
In the house on the 2Dth there
was a spirited and heated
skirmish when Mr. Pierce, of Ten
nessee, rising to a question of personal
privilege, denied the statement made
a few days ago by Evans,
of Tennessee, to the effect that there has
been ballot stuffing in his district. The
speaker ruled that this did Lot present the
matter as a personal privilege. This
resulted in some sharp talk,
in which the speaker was
contradicted by Pierce, nnd Mills, of
Texas, accused him of fraud. The speak
er declared Mills out of order, whereupon
he responded: "I am in order, and the
speaker is more out of order than the gen
tleman from Texas. The ruling is simply
an outrage." Tho matter was then dropped.
The senate resolution was concurred in,
concerning the irrigation of the arid lands
of the valley of the Kio Grande. '1 ho lull
removing the charge of desertionfiom the
record of Wm, Dawson was passed. The
senato bill passed for the disposal of the
Fort Sedgwick military reservation
in Colorado and Nebraska. The
house then went into committee of
the whole on the bill providing for the
classification of worsted cloths as woolens.
After a long discussion tho committee rose
and reported the bill to the house. On
the passage of the bill no quorum voted,
and there being no quorum tuesent Mr.
Dingley moved an adurne!!, which
In the senate the committee on foreign
relations reported a concurrent resolut.on
requesting the president to negotiate with
Ihe governments of Great lntian aud
Mexico with a view of securing treaty dep
ntations for tho prevention of the entry
into the United States of Chinese from
Canada and Mexico, aud immediate con
sideration of it asked. tonsidortion
of the custom administration resumed.
Senator Gray moved to amend the bill bv
inserting a provision giving the importer
who is dissatisfied the right to tegm a
common law suit in the United States
circuit court. This was discussed at length
and tne bill was finally laid aside without
action. The conference report on the
house bill for a public building at Fremont.
Neb., was agreed to. The cot was ?C0,
000, but there is no appropriation in the
bill Senator Piatt's "resolution for the
correction of the Oklahoma bill wa agreed
to and the senate adjourned.
After the reading of the journal the
house on the 30th proceeded to otenpon
the passage of the bill for the classification
Of worsted and woolen cloths. The lull
passed yeas, 138; nays, 0 the speaker
counting a quorum. The bill authorizes
the secretary of the treasury to classifj as
woolen cloths all imports of worsted cloths
which are not known under the name of
worsted cloth, or under the name of
worsted," or diagonals, or otherwise. The
committee on rules reported a rescu
lution providing for the immediate consin
eration of the- 6enate dependent pension
bill, to which the Morrill service pension
bill gaay be ordered as a substitute, the
Ssvious question to be considered as or
red at 4 o'clock. Mr. Carlisle prot66ted
against the adoption of resolutions of this
character, which took away ftom the com
mittee of the whole the right to
consider many bills and forced the house
to TOta mpon them after a brief
debate. It was sot fair to the members of
the hoase; it was not fair to the taxpayers
of the country. "The pension estimates
ware sever liberal enough and he said the
exaeaditares under the senate bill would
amaaa to $45,000,000, and under the new
fcouee bill to $50,000,000. From this time
he vWpmd protest against this system
isaiat upon the ngnts or me xnem
to have an opportunity for dis-
,afl amendment. After imther
aa aatendment , was agreed
Jiomll bill reducing
the age limitation from G2 to GO years.
The Morrill bill was rgreed to as a substi
tute for the senate bill yeas, 183; nays, 71.
Mr. Yoder moved to commit tho bill
with instructions to the committee to re
port back a per diem pension bill. Lost
48 to 101. The senate bill as amended by
the substitute was then passed 179 to 70
amid loud applause. The house then ad
journed. In the senate on the ist Senator Vest,
from the select committee on meat pro
ducts, made a report to the senate, and ac
companied it with an explanation. lie
asked, in the name of the cattle raisers of
the country, that tho bill be taken up
and considered at an early day.
Senator Cullom recognized the impor
tance of the measure and declared him
self anxious to secure an early considera
tion. He asked Senator Vest whether tho
repeil would be very long or whether it
could be printed soon. Senator Vest re
plied that the report covered about 100
pages of type-written matter, and he sup
posed it could be printed in a few dayp.
The house amendment to the senate bill
for a public building at Aurora, III., was
not concurred in and a conference asked.
The customs administrative bill was taken
up, the pending question being on Senator
vuuy b uuieuumem, securing to me
aggrieved importer the right to bring a
common-law suit against n collector,
Senator Hiscock proposed an amendment
to the effect that tho court, in its discre
tion, may receive additional evidenco, and
send the difficult questions of fact for trial

tor Gray's amendment was laid on tho
table by a party vote. After executive sea-
siou the senate adjourned.
In the house on the 1st the committee.
on rules reported a resolution for tho nn- i
mediate consideration of bills reported

prevent competition in tho salo or pur- i
chase of any commodity transported from '

the best information obtainable at this

spasmodic strikes hero and thore among

that none of tho great industries of the

such as had been the case with building

There was no concerted action toward

In Milwauko tho demand of the union
carpenters for the adoption of an eight

for increased wages, andas the men are
willing to accept eight hours' pay for eight

no strong oppposiiion on the part of their
employers, although the Contracting Car
penters' association declined as a body to
formally declare in favor of eight hours,
many individual members of tho associa

Crowfoot the great chief of the Black
feet, died on the 26th of inflammation of the
lungs, after a few days' illness. In his
will he named Three Bulta as his suc
cessor. Crowfoot, or Sapomaxiho, was
one of the leading characters in the Can
adian Northwest. The history of this
region for the past half century has been
largly determined by him. His in
fluence over the- Indians was supreme.
He was the closest embodiment pos
sible of the mythical noble - red
man. Dauntless in battle, imbued with
all the instincts of the Indian, he at the
same time possessed many traits of char
acter which commanded the admiration of
all whom he was brougkin contact. In
early pioneer days he was the arbitrator

His diplomacy extracted the Canadian
Pacific .Railroad company from ft serious
difficulty with the Blnckfoet. He was
ever the friend of the missionary. His re
fusal to join the nbels in tho la9t north
west rebellion prevented what would oth
erwise have been a long and bloodv con
flict. He Married a Poor Girl.
The Shoemaker family is one of the old
est and wealthiest families in the anthra
cite regions. Their annual income from
coal royalties alone reaches $250,000. One
member of the family is McDonald D.
Shoemaker, whose income is $20,000 a
year. He is about 40 years of age. Until
very recently it had been Understood that
McDonald was towed a daughter of One of
the wealthiest men of AViikesb.irre. Sud
denly the youug man changed his mind
and declared that ho would marry a poor
girl, one who could assist him in
case of adversity. His parents were
very indignant when they tear i ed
of McDonald's intentions, and even
went so far ob to pet:tion
the court to inquire into the ydunc man's
sanity, lie was determined, however, and
one day last week he took a train for
Elmira, in company with Annie Lawrence,
a young woman who had been formerly
employed as a housekeeper. At Elmira
they wero married. On Saturday Shoe
maker returned with his bride to Wilkes
barre, intending to install his wifo in bis
mother's house. His uncle, John nar
rower, was in waiting, and as soon as tho
bridal couplo put in an appearance, nar
rower threw their baggage into the street,
and when Shoemaker attempted to enter
tho house his Uncle knocked him down,
blackened his eyes and knocked him into
the gutter. Shoemaker has sinco had his
uncle arrested. There is great excitement
over tho matter in aristocratio circles.
Escaped Juxtice for Many Year.
Seven years ago Omri Thompson and Ovid
White followed Jacob Johnson homo from
the Salem, Ind., fair, killed and robbed
him. Both fled to Mexico, but later re
turned to Kansas. Thompson was arrested
at Wyandotte, returned to Salem, triod and
sentenced to the penitentiary for life.
White, who was apprehended in Doniphan
county and escaped by killing the sheriff,
has been believed dead since. His arrest
at Mineola is now announced. Omri
Thompson attempted to escape recently.
Tools and money were smuggled to him in
hollow apples, and sawing through two
floors he escaped, but misssed his friends,
who had a change of clothing for him.
Hiding under a barn, a dog betrayed him.
A most exciting chase over precipitous
knobs followed. Volleys wero fired after
him, but he was unhurt and only captured
when falling, after a six hours' run, nearly
lifeless from exhaustion. Thompson
claims to be innocen and says that
White compelled him to accompan yhim.

been sent there for the purpose of inter
cepting the Pine Ridge Cheyenne Indians
who, it is claimed, are becoming uneasy
and threaten to leavo tho reserva
tion without leave and 6triko out for
Montana on a visit to the nortern Chey
eunes. i. is the intention of tho govern
ment to prevent this, and with such an idea
in view troops are being sent to different
poiuts around and adjacent to the reser
vation. Settlers have no fears of any hos
tile demonstration on the part of the na
tion's wards, and look upon the presence
of troops here with not a little merriment.
It is quite likely the soldiers will remain
during May and June.

Yesterday a half hundred people in this
city were suddenly seized with pains nnd
severe sickness of the stomach, attacks
continuing several hours. A number aro
still quito sick, with new cases developing
to-day. Much excitement at first pro
vailed, as physicians were foiled in deter
mining the cause, some thinking that the
rouble aroso from diseased meat while
others pronounced it la nona, the prevail
ing epidemic in Germany and Italy. At
tho Abbott house twenty-two boarders,
with the proprietor and wife, aro victims,
all being attacked at the same time. James
Burgess was walking along the road whero
ha fell, and laid unattended for an hour.

Indian territory were cut off by rising

Many Complaints of the tat Eaforeensrat
or tho Immigration1 Laws;
Word has been received that Secretary
Windom,- if ndt exactly alarmed,- is cer
tainly agitated over the importation of
contract labor immigrant?. There Is
scarcely a labor organization in the country
which has not complained that the admin
istration is altogether too loose in the
methods by which the importation of for
eign contract labor has been controlled a
New York city. In the complaints which
the secretary has received there is
nothing particular said of the board
of state immigration, neither aro
there any comments reflecting on Collector
Erhart or Colonel Webber, the present boss
of the business. Tne complaints ate based
chiefly on the statement that there aro not
enough representatives of the federal ad
ministration to prevent the influx of con
tract laborers. Thus it comes about that
there is a desk full of complaints from
plasterers, stonemasons, musicians, and,
iu fact, nil tho principal labor unions in the
country; that shiploads of foreign competi
tors aro turned loose upon the country
every month. These labor unions have
made it a question of politics with the ad
ministration. They protest that there
must be enough men appointed to protect
their interests, or they will make it warm
for tho administration. Secretary Win
dom has issued orders that the utmost
vigilance must be exercised in scanning
the cargoes of Rtceraga passen
gers who arrive at tho port of New York
every day in tho week. From this source
tho federal official who dees net attend to
this matter strictly will have a hot time
with the secretary. Mr. Windom himself
is expected almost any day to give his
personal supervision to carrying out these
instructions. From all that can be
learned President llerrison is alarmed at
tire free importation of contract iabor.

An Indian Mesiah.
A letter has been received by Gen.
Ruger, of the department of Dakota, in
St. Paul, from Maj. Carroll, of Fort Cus
ter, Mont., giving the details of a peculiar
excitement among the Indians of the
Tongue river agency in Montana. The
Indians have been lod to believe that a
messiah is soon to appear to them. The
Choyennes and Arapahoes, of the Indian
territory, are greatly excited over the 6ame
matter. It appears that though these In
dian tribes are fully a thousand miles apart
they both have the same belief that a
6avior is soon coming to them'and that he
will destroy the white people of America.
The Shoshone Indiaps claim to have seen
Christ and that he has promised to roll the
world over on the whites. It is believed
the Indians have mixed up the religion of
the missionaries with the mythology of the
aborigines. Maj. Carroll has been ordered
to the scene of the excitement.
Twelve anarchists have been arrested in

THIS AND THAT IN NEBRASKA.
A county seat fight is now on in Rei
Willow county. For the past few davs
itcCook has made a still hunt for a peti
tion asking the county board to call a spe
cial election for the purpose of relocating
the coullty seat of Bed Willow county,
which is now located at Indianola, a small
town eloven miles east of McCook. Mc
Ceok's committee having the matter in
charge ha? prfsentcil to the eounty com
missioners a petition 6igned by 1,548
electors of the county, asking that a
special election be called to relocate
tho county seat. Last jeaf was
aa off year in politics. Only
1,507 votes wero cast at the November
election, nnd as only three-fifths of
tho number of votes cast at the last elec
tion aiC necessary to procure a special
election, it i safo to predict that an elec
tion will be called. Indianola s friends aro
endeavoring, by getting up remonstrances,
to defeat tho "call. Tho county commis
sioners gave them until Saturday nijjht to
file remonstrances, nud will give their ile
cision on Wednesday next. McCook feels
confident that the election will be called
