UAILUOAl ) LANDS.
WABHINOTON , Juno 20. The ac
tion of the house judiciary committee-
in the matter of the land grants of
the Northern Pacific railway ia said
to bo delayed by the firm stand by
Richard W. Townshend , of Illinois ,
member of the committee. From
first to last ho atood erect nnd immov
able upon the equities uf the public.
Other members of the committee
pioparod a report in favor of the rail
way company ! but Townshond drew
up report in favor ot the people. At
first Townshend's report was termed
the minority report , and had not
moro than ono adherent with himself
out of the whole committee , but time
nnd reflection brought recruits until
at the present moment the issue is de
layed by the custodians of the report
in favor of the railway company for
fear that upon the final test Towns-
hond'o report in favor of the public
would receive the sanction of the ma
jority. The area of laud involved is
greater than that of the united king
dom of Great Britain and Ireland.
THE OENEVA COMMISSION.
The cabinet meeting to-day waa
short and unimportant. The Geneva
award commmii'in was considered and
ox-Senator Harlnn and Judge Wells
agreed upon. The third member was
not selected.

KTAP. ItOUTE TIUALS.
The star route session was devoted
to the testimony of clerks as to routoa
and contracts. Defense objected to
the examination of route 41,155 , as
the only allegation in the indictment
was that it had been increased on
false petitions , and the petitions had
been admitted to bo genuine. The
court overruled the objection. An
exception was noted , and court ad
journed.
TUB TAUIKK COMMISSION.
The soiiito remained in executive
session nearly two hours. There was
a sharp debate on the composition of
the tariff commission without any
poiBonal objection to its members , -
nd they woio finally confirmed by n
of 32 to 22.
7k senate also confirmed ten of
the nominations for justices of the
pouco for the district of Columbia.
John A. Moas ( colored ) , was objected
to and ho wont ovor.
THE HKl'UIIUOAN CAUCU.H
was in session throe hours. The only
subject of consideration was Kelly' ; )
internal revenue bill , about which
there was great diversity ot opinion.
It was decided not to take the tax off
bank capital or whisky. The internal
revenue bill will coma up nftor the li
brary bill ia disposed of. The caucus
i was fairly attended , but was no ; full ,
the nbaonno of Kelly being noticeable.

The committee on commerce report
ed adversely to Belmont "a reduction
of the tonnage- bill , on the ground thnt
it would bo of greater advantage to
foreign ship owners than to Ameri
can.
can.Mr. . Howard ( Ga. ) opposed the elec
toral bill , saying , with all duo respect
to the committee , ho desired to re
mark that instead of the bill carrying
into the oiled the provisions of the
constitution regarding the election of
president , it is n lull to organize hell
in the United States , It ia n bill
which would bring wnr , nnd the bit
ter experience of the past few years
show that this ia only the fitting word
to expresa ita terrors.JJ- *
Mr. llowitt apoko in favor of the
bill , taking occasion to remark that if
any man said ho ( Hewitt ) was ani
mated in his course by other than pa
triotic motives , ho said what waa
faiso , nnd if ntiy ono Raid his course
waa without the knowledge or against
the advice of the one chiefly con
cerned ( Tilden ) , that statement waa
also false. The concluding sections
of the bill , submitting the question of
the claimant to the circuit court and a
jury , ho admitted ho did not per
sonally favor , but many thought it
wise , and its provipiono were included
iii the bill placed in his hands by
higher democratic authority , nnd
which hnd been largely drawn upon
by the committee in framing this bill.
Mr. UpdegrafT spoke in support of
the bill.
Mr , Brown's motion to strike out
all that portion of the bill which refers
contests to the court ? , was adopted
without division , Mr. Updograff nlono
voting against striking it out.
A vote was than taken on the bill
and it was defeated yeas 93 , noyslOO ,
democrats voting for the bill and ro-
pubhcaim ayainstiit.
The house also rotiiaod by a large
majority" to take up for third reading
the snnato bill for which this was sub
stituted.
Mr. Robinson ( NY ) gave notice
that if the committee on toreigu affairs
does ii'h.goou report on his resolution
relative to American citizens in British
prisons , ho will ask that it bo taken
trom it and considered ,
Mr. Orth replied that the committee
had prepared n report and would pre
sent it on Saturday.
The house then took up the bill ap
propriating § 1.000,000 for a congres
sional library building , and , after a
speech by Mr. Rico ( Jlusa. ) in favor ,
the house at 5Lo : p. in. adjourned.

CORN CROP.
Not n , Very Fln-ttortiiff Prospect ,
OmrAcio , Juno 20 A prominent
commission linn have reports from
1,400 correspondents. They say :
"When our correspondenta in many
sections of the great corn producing
bolt of thn country , informs us this
late date that corn is not nil yet plnnt-
od , that much will have to bo replant
ed , and with few exceptions report the
crop in a very backward condition , wo
confess it causea a good deal of ap
prehension for the outlook of the
greatest nnd moat important of our
cereals. Many localities report a good
stand , nnd wo nro pleased to note very
general expressions ol hopefulness
on the part of our cot respon
dents that , with a Into nnd
favorable season from now on , crops
may yet como out all right. But ,
coupled with their statements of the
present unfavorable condition of crops
at largo , wo take it the "wish is father
to the thought" rather than their
hopes are based on actual belief that
the corn belt will produce oven an
average crop. The cause of the back
ward condition is generally nttributod
to cold weather. Tins has been gen
erally succeeded by warm nnd grow
ing weather , which begets now hope
fulness. The outlook in Kansas is
„
decidedly the most favorable of any
of the loading corn growing states.
The outcome nt largo can only bo de
termined against it in the start. In
pleasing contrast with corn are
HUII.LIANT I'UOSl'KCTS
now reported for perhaps much tlio
largest crop of oats ever reaped in this
country. The acreage is largely in-
croaacd , and scarcely without excep
tion our roporta are of the most prom
ising nature. The hay or grass crop is
now generally reported doing well , but
a careful study of the field at large
indicates very considerably shortage.
Great damage was done meadows by
thu unprecedented drought last year ,
and many sections report clover par
ticularly badly winter killed. In ad
dition to this quite eorioua damngo in
portions of Indiana , Missouri and Il
linois , from dreary , warm and cold
wet weather also caused alow growth.
Another largo shortage iu corn and
grass crop ? this ycur would provo nl-
most a commercial calamity nnd WA )
hopu may not bo experienced.

had boon unusually hot , and toward
evening ominous looking clouds hung
in the northwest. About 0 o'clock a
deep nnd sullen roar like the approach
of Bovoral rapidly moving freight
trains was heard , but before the
cauao of the peculiar phenomena
was surmised the storm had burst
in nil its fury. Striking the town
upon the northwest quarter , it cut a
sinuous path through the most beauti
ful residence part of the town , carry
ing death and destruction in its path.
Every animate and inanimate object
was picked up in ita relentless grasp
and hurled to death nnd destruction.
Houses were nnnihilatud , fences ob

This little town was nestled nicely
i a gentle knoll. To the south and
lutheast is a beautiful valley , bo-
jnd which is 11 stretch of undulating
airio. Along on thin prairiu wore lo-
led many neat farm cottauus. There
nothing left of them. Standing in
the streets of Malcom , considering the
extent to which the p th of the storm
had spread when it n ached Malcom ,
its fury ia phenomenal. The debris
of the farm house * was scattered over
the prairie for a mile or moro in a
snuthweslerly direction from the
points at which they were located.
The lumber was splintered nnd frag
ments driven into the ground with
terrific force. lUrbed wire but re
cently put on was blown from the
fence posts and coiled nnd twisted into
divers shapt's. Telegraph poles were
snapped asunder ami spitefully stuck
in the ground.
