. D , 0.May 29.-Mr.
Rood , republican , from the committee
on rules , called up the proposed
amendment to the rules prohibiting
dilatory motions in election cases.
Mr. Randall , pending putting of
the question , raised the question of
Mr. Konna moved to adjourn. The
Ayes and nays were called. Lost.
Mr. Konna then moved to adjourn
till Wednesday. The ayes and nays
were called and the motion lost.
The first vote showed the ropubli-
< ans had a quorum.
Mr. Randall again raised the ques
tion of consideration.
Mr. Reed made the point of order
that no dilatory motion should bo on-
iertaiued on a proposition to change
the i nice.
Mr Randall denied the right of the
-chair hi motion dila
- to construe * as
Mr. Rood proposed to state the
-reasons for such construction , provid
ing debate was limited to a fixed time.
The democrats re fused to fix a limit ,
leaving the chair the discretion.
Mr. Reed then addressed the chair.
He argued that the proposition was
merely to change thovrulo which al
lowed the minority to obstruct busi
ness , and congress had a constitutional -
al right to make the change. It was
unnecessary to argue that the motions
by the minority to-day and during the
past eight days were dilatory , their
character being self-evident. During
similar procedure by the democrats in
1875 , Speaker Blaine decided not to
recognize dilatory motions on propo
sitions to change the rules , and that
"Committee rules , under the action of
the house , might propose amendments
iojfio rnloa at any time , and the min-
aro/therofore had no right to further
Mr. Randall followed , arsjuing ilmt
iho chair .hwLno right to ruKTagainst
motions pending considoroticn of now
rules. Ho asserted that Blaine never
ruled as Reed alleged , and contended
that rules could not bo changed by
less than a two-thirds vote , quoting
Garfield in support.
Mr. Kaoson argued that the ques
tion of seating a member was the
ilr. Carlisle denied Reed's assor-
tiotSthat Grfiold opposed filibuster
ing in election cases , and concluded
that on ths contrary ho led them.
Mr. JJurrowa read the Record to
show tlat Garfield opposed fillibustor-
ing as .reactionary ann an unjust usur-
pUioi ; of the rights of the majority.

of tfo minority , and Mr. Blackburn

my the majority to change the rules

iho crop reports Irom the line of the
Central branch may bo consid
ered as follows : Wheat , both
winter and spring , show a slight
docrcaso in acreageplanted. . The de
crease is mainly in Jho west , and
reaches the largest figures in the center -
tor of the extreme dry spot of last
season , On the east end of the line
tlio decrease in acreage is not so mar
ked , and in some instances an in
crease ia reported. A well posted
farmer told mo to-day that the in
creased yield would exceed the _ decrease -
crease in area and glvd a larger yield
than over known in the state.
Uyo and oats , will show on increased
ncroago with a yield above the average.
Barley , millet , potatoes , etc. , are
somewhat increased in acreage and
the crop will bo largo , The corn crop
shows an immensely increased acre
age which will , I think , bo cloao to
fifty per cent
This increase ia. light near the
river , but incroason as you go west
until some points have reached as
high as ono hundred per cent , The
planting of corn is not yet finished ,
and that which is in the ground has
been sot back by the continued cold
Seasonable rains will make a corn
crop far above the average. There is
a large increase in the quantity of
sorghum and broom corn , and is more
noticeable in the west , and those are
in fine condition and promise a largo
yield. Fruit will bo a largo crop.

sontod a' fictitious claim against the
United States of America for 300
yards of the best quality of Napier

chased'from Alfred L. Davis for the

which goods were never dnliiored asset

the fraudulent receipt by false pre
tenses and representations , nnd the
said'vou'ohor or receipt was collected
by Hull and converted to his own use
and bendfit , no paying with his pri
vate check to DAVIS the sum of $229P
60 only , in full pitment of the claim ,
all being done with the intent then
and thereby to defraud the United
States of America , etc-
The second count is that nn the 1st
of March , 1880 , Hull put in a claim
on account of nine and one-half days
labor of Davis and three men in put
ting down carpets and moving furni
ture and matting in said building , at
$3 per day each , amounting to $114.

Very Ancient Butter.
Wignor and Church , two English.
chemists , have boon examining two-
very ancient samples of butter. The
first was Irish bog butter , which could
not bo traced with any degree of cer
tainty to a particular locality ; but
there would bo no doubt as to its be
ing i a perfectly authentic specimen ,
probably I 1,000 years old. The other-
sample , which was much older , was.
taken i from nn Egyptian tomb , and
dates from about 40O to 000 years before -
fore i Ohrijt. It was contain
ed in a email alabaster
vase , and had apparently boon
poured ] in while in n molted state. . li
closely i resembled silently rancid but
ter 1 in pppuaranco , color , smell , and
taste. I The analysis proved that the
samples had not undergone any nota
ble change during their long storage.
A modification of this ancient method
of preserving butter for long ponoda
is the following : "Molt the butter m
a stoneware or a woll-ghued
earthen pan ; set in an outer
water bath at a tempera *
turo of about 180 Fahrenheit and
keep it heated , akimming it for
some time until it become quite trans
parent ; then pour oif the clear portion
tion into another vessel , and cool it as
quickly as possible by placing the ves
sel in very cold water , " It ia in thia
way that the Tartars are enabled to
supply the Constantinoplemarket. .
In Una condition the butter keeps per
fectly fresh for six or nine months ,
if placed in closed vessel and cool
store. It has been found that butter
molted and skimmed by the Tartarian
nothod , and than salted by ours , will
remain Bound and fine tasted for two.
