House bill to relieve certain soldiers
of the Into war from the charge of do-
scrtion waa passed , so nmonded as to
exclude from its bandits thoao who
served leHS than welvo months , or
who intentionally deserted.
The tax reduction bill waa them
taken up , 40 to 2 , but waa temporarily
laid nsiito to enable Senator Slater to
call up the conference report on the
Indian Crook orphan fund bill. On
the latter motion , Senatora Cameron
( Wis. ) , IngnUa , Saundcrs nnd Van
NVyck , with Davis ( III. ) , voted nye
with the democrats.
The pi incipal point in controversj
on the Indian bill was the item of
§ 1,000,000 , for the eupport of the
loynl rofugcea of the tribe , which the
senate had voted to have chargoii
usjains ! the Cceok fund , nnd na U
which the conferees reported that the
money shall bo paid by the United
States directly mjd nothing in the
net shall prevent the Litter from being
reimbursed hereafjor for the same by
the Crook nation , i The report , after
discussion , was adopted.
Senator Hale presented n conference
report upon the naval appropriatioi
bill and explained that argcOmonts had
been roochod upon all itema in dis
pute except that in reference to the
temporary closing of the navy yerdi
and the transfer of perishable proper
ty and atoroa therefrom , nnd one
authorizing the .joport to be mad

tbo house conference regarded the
lessoning uf the number of yards n
the most important reform in the bil
as they believed there was now toi
many yards Personally the senate
conferees agreed with them in this
but were constrained in view of thi
vote of the senate , to report i
formal disagreement. The reault o
the compromises upoi other item
waa aa follows : Senate umondmen
protecting the government from an ;
liability to complete unfiniahod mon
itora is asaentod to by the house ; reductions
ductions in the line has boon arranged

ent gradea aa follows : Rear ndmirnli
4 , commodores 15 , captains 5 , com
manders 3 , lieutenant commanders 8
lieutenants 30 , instead of 80 as pro
posed by the house ; masters 25 , en

sale of aliips stores and supplies it is
provided that old and useless ships ar

is retained in the bill , und the remainder
maindor , including the part direct
ing the eoonitary in certain
caaoa to assign ofllcera upon furlough
pay , ia atricked out. This loaves the
law unchanged in thia respect. The
conference report waa accepted and anew
now conforeea appointed upon the two
items remaining in dispute.

tion aa intended to delay the bill nnd mi

having caused the death of an infant
recently born to hia wifo. It seems
that the couple have been living in

that children were born lo them with
unusual frequency , nnd that they
mysteriously disappeared , causing
much tnlk among their nci hbors , but
no direct steps wcro taken until yes

fessod thnt during his eight years

eight children , all of which hud died
when very young ; that whenever one
died ho put it In n bag , carried it to

nnd that the bodies of eight infanta
were thus interred between Thirty-

says hia wife consented to thia dis
