TIII : VOTMO.V nriMUNDs' itisoiirnoNH. :
The subject attracting the most attention
In Washington just now Is the approaching
vote In this senate on thcKdmunds resolution
rotating to the refusal of the executive department -
partment to furnhih the nskcd for Informa
tion as to suspensions and appointments.
The Indications arc Unit there will bo pretty
nearly a strict party vote. It is claimed that
If nit the senators who do not approve of the
resolutions were to vote against them they
would probably bo i ejected , but many of them
will , It Is thought , vote for them for political
reasons. The result Is not , however , by any
means certain. There have been several
open desertions from Kdmnnds'side , notably
thosaofTcllcramll'lnmb. Howen andJRlddle-
bent also urobullevcd to be convinced of the
nsclcssness and the untenablllty of the posi
tion taken by Edmunds. Although the six
republican members of the finance commit
tee Messrs. Mnrrlll , Sherman , Jones of Xo-
vadu , Aldrich , Allison and Warner Miller
have KOIIO diametrically In opposition to the
'Vermont senator In regard to linance nomi
nations , there is FOIIIO doubt as to whether
they will oppose the resolution as a whole.
Unt besides those who haves openly crossed
ICuninnds * path there are others who , It is
thought , nro secretly blocking his progress by
their very Inaction. It Is not improbable
that the resolutions may bo modified before
adoption so as to make them only apply to
suspended olllcers whoso terms had u fixed
THI : PACIFIC r.oAns MUST DISOOHOB.
There is demoralization In the I'nulllc rail
road lobby here. For some limo very activn
work has been going on for the passage of
the sixty years funding bill , and the lobby
was on the verge of success , when It was
learned that the administration was moving
towards a prosecution of tlio roads. Whllo ii
has become apparent that the Henley rcsoln-
11 on to Investigate the affairs of tlio Union
Pacific will bo adopted , It has been linallv de
termined that a suit .shall bo brought by the
government against the Pacific railroads to
recover the enormous sums whlcli they have
I llegnlly paid to the Pacific Mall Sleamshli
cujnpany in the form of a subsidy so as to de
fraud the government. It is not iniprobablr
that the picsldent will send a special message
to congress upon the subject. There Is con
sternation among tlio I'aclilu railroad people
mid their representatives here , and the be-
1 lot Is general that It will bo but a very short
t line till these corporations will bo forced tc
disgorge by an honest settlement.
-MANNING IS A SICK MAX.
Secretary Manning Is much worse than his
physicians or his family admit to repre
sentatives of thopicss. It Is the same old
story that was told in the case of Senator
Miller , that ho Is gelling along well and maybe
bo out In a few days. The truth Is , as learned
by your correspondent to-day , that one side
of Manning Is paralyzed and that the doctors
nay to their friends that Manning will never
again bo able to perform his duties as secre
tary of the tioiisury. The serious character
of the attack was known when ho was
stricken down , but it was given out that ho

Logan Wants n Jja vjor Army Work-
' ln llnrd to Gut It.
WASHINGTON , March 25. fSpeclal--Do ]
f. fore the session Is over tliero will bo a gooil
S deal of agitation In congress about Increasing
the volume of the st'.mding army , Senator
Logan Is determined that the army shall br
Increased if he. can hnvo It done , while then
am a number of military men in the house ,
who onteitain the same views. In the house ,
however , there ino a very largo number 01
men who me. not of a military turn , and sonu
who lay claim to the knowledge of what an
army should bo who will bitterly oppose anj
increase ! of expense * In this direction.
1 was talking to an old military commandet
who has been for many years In llio regions
of the west * about the eP.lcIency ot the army ,
and he said :
"The army as It stands to-day Ustilllclentlj
largo and t'illclcnt for any emergency within
our own borders. True , if wo should have n
difficulty with Mexico , wo would need n
larger army , but to suppress tlio Indians 01

that It can bo completely abandoned
in Ihn event of n riot nnywhcro in
our Jarso e'.tles. Then wo have sueh n
complele mllltla and our larger cities are pro
vided with such excellent ' pollco forces , that
t'uvro ' Is really no-need of'unhirglug th'o arm >
at all. If congress wanted to luV a permanent

nllllln. Thomllitln oftlio Mates is always

: asc of riot , and It docs not cost wore than
0 per cent as much to maintain or encourage
ho maintenance ot state mllltla as regular
army soldiers. 1 don't think there will bo
any enlargement of the army at this time. "
iMi'iNii.\o : Tiipun.i : WITH .MKXICO.
TJln congressional and army circles a great
leal Is snld nowadays about the dlfllciilty on
our Mexican border. It Is the belief here that
Mexican soldiers do not think well of those
of the United Stiles , and that they would
iladly precipitate a war , notwithstanding
; ho pretended friendly relations ot that gov
ernment toward ours. The killing of Captain
Crawford yet lingers painfully In the minds
of the people , and the actions of the Mexican
officer the other ( by in demanding the
Apaches who gave themselves up to our troops
is trophies of his own victory , cause warm
blood to rush through tlm veins of these
connected with the war department. There
Is a feeling hero that It will not be many
years , and probably but a fv months before
we have more serious trouble with the Mex
ican boundary. The feeling has grown so
intense among these who will have to deter
mine whether there will bo war , that the onl-
pjok Is not very hopeful. Thcio nro these
who bellcvo that the trouble will never bo
fully determined without some bloodshed ,
and it looks as though congress would not bo
slow to uncourago a termination of It , oven
through that means.
riir.YAI.I , Nr.vnu IMACII ; HIM.
Prominent democrats are discussing the
probable action of the president on the itlair ,
Willis , or some other educational bill , should
one pass congress during this session and go
to him for his approval. Many men who
liavc talked to the president upon the sub-
| cct , say that ho would not sign the lllalr
bill , nor Iho Willis bill , wluchlls simitar but
appropriates about one-third less money. The
president believes It unconstitutional to take
money out of the general treasury for the
purpose of encouraging education in the
status , because he believes it is under the con
stitution a state matter. It is hardly worth
while to contemplate the action of the presi
dent upon an educational bill , because there
Is no more than one chance In forty that such
a measure will bo passed by this congress.
WASHINGTON , M.xrch 25. The committee
on commerce reported a bill to provide for
the encouragement of American shipping
and to promote commercial and postal rela
tions with foreign nations.
Mr. Fryo explained brletly that the bill ap
propriated SI,100,000 for carrying the United
States malls In American vessels to and from
forolcn countries : makes it the duty of the
postmaster ci'iicrnl to advertise for proposals ,
to accept the lowest bids , and to enter into
contract for carrying these malls. Tlio bill ,
Mr. Fryo added , had received the unani
mous endorsement of all the members of the
committee on commerce present at the meet
ing at which it was considered. Placed on
The chair laid before the senate a letter
from the postmaster general transmitting , in
compliance with the recent senate resolution ,
n tabulated statement of fourth-class post
masters removed since March 4,1SS5. Re-
Mr. Vooilines took the floor in opposition
to the majority report on the Edmunds reso
In tliocoursoof his address Mr. Yoorlices
paid It the attorney general was gulllv. as
charged , then ho should bo impeached. That
was a matter for the house. The majority of
the senate had turned outside from the
legitimate business of legislation. Labor all
over the country was overtaxed and scantily
paid , by reason of long standinir and vicious
legislation. Mr. Voorhces heartily endorsed
President Cleveland's action in making re
movals so far as action had been had , and ho
would hcaitily endorse the president's
action In the same direction if It
went a thousand leagues farther.
The civil service law had never
commended Itself to the judgment of Mr ,
Voorhces. Very recently ho had voted in a
committee and should vote In the senate for
Its absolute repeal. It had proven Itself to
bo a violent and odious obstruction to the
will of the people , p.nd a stumbling block In
the way of u rational nnd successful adminis
tration of the government.
Mr. Kvarts then addressed the senate in
suiiport of tlio joint report.
Air. Call followed in opposition to the ma
jority report , and at tno conclusion of his re
marks Mr. Ingalls obtained the lloor.
The senate then went Into executive ses
sion , and teen adjourned.
WASHINGTON , March 25. in committee
of the whole on the postofllco appropriation
bill to-day , Mr. Gncnther said that the post
master general had been made the target for
Innumerable and vicious assaults and mis
representations , which , in his opinion , had
been entirely unfounded , and dictated solely
from a spirit of revougo and spite by certain
steamship companies and especially the Pa-
cllie Mall steamship compiny , which , seeing
its well-laid plans for a successful raid on the
treasury frustrated by the postofllco depart
ment , had set up a most icrrilic and pro
longed howl , lit to bo compared only to llio
howl of the tiger whoso prey had been
snatched fiom him. The reasons given by
the postmaster general for not exercising the
authority given-him In regard to foreign mail
service were good and sulllclent jcasons.
The committee then rose.
The uvening session was devoted to tlio
consideration of resolutions expressive oftlio
sorrow of the house at the death of Joseph
Ranlcin , Into representative from Wisconsin.

Messrs. Henderson of Iowa , llrairir , Hilda ,

Lour CITY , Neb , March 23. [ Special
Telegram. ] Last night the stage driver
from Leo's Park brought the news
ot what will probably provo a
a fatal shooting affair which occurred near
that place. The particulars , as staled by him ,
arc as follows : On a farm about two miles
this side of Leo's Park lived George Collln
and family , consisting of a son , oged 10 , and
a daughter , aged 18. The father Is a hard
drinker , and Tuesday last some trouble arose ,
the particulars of which wo did not learn.
This exasperated him and ho shot his wito
through the left .side , and not satisfied
with this murderous work beat
her over the head witli a club and loft her for
dead. He then turned on his children and
fired three shots , one of which clipped the
boy's car and another grazed the girl's tem
ple. The plucky boy grappled with his
lather , knocked him down with a club , and
succeeded In binding him before assistance
arrived. Collln was bronsht to Ihis city and
locked up , and a physician sent to attend
the wounded lady. At last reports she was
still alive , but no hope for her recovery.
Collln has long had a bad reputation. Some
time ago his family made complaint Hint they
were in fear of their lives , but no attention
was paid to them. Talk of lynching is freely

Civji Service Anniinl.
WASHINGTON' , Starch 25. The president
sent to congress to-day the third annual re
port ot the civil service commission , together
with the following message :
ExKftmvi : MANSION , March 'J5. To the
Senate and House of Representatives 1
transmit herewith tlm repoit ot the civil ser
vice commission for tlio year ending on tlio
10th day ot January last. The exhibit thus
made ot the operations of the commission ,
and the account thus presented ot the results
of following the execution of the civil service
law , cannot fall to demonstrate Its usefulness
and strengthen the conviction that this
schema for reform In the methods of admin
istrating Iho government is no longer nn
oxpcilment. Wherever this reform has
gained foothold It has steadily advanced in
the esteem of these charged with public
administrative duties , while people who deslro
good government have constantly been cou-
nrmcd In their high cstlniatcof Its high value
and niciin\v. With the bandits It has
already secured to the public service plainly
apparent , nud with Its pioiulso of Increased
usefulness easily appreciated , tills cause is
commended to the liberal care mul jealous
protection ol conercss.
conercss.GIIOVKU Ci.nvni.AM ) .
The repoit says the w-holo number of
persons examined under the commission dur
ing the year has been 7W ( ! , of whom 0,872
were males and 7TX ) were females. The whole
number thus examined since the act was
passed has bncn 17,4111. Of these examined ,
a trlllo loss than two-thirds succeeded. The
whole number of appointments made during
the past year from ihn.so examined has been
1,870. each lor n probationary period of six
months. If to those wo add 2.G03 the num
ber made diirlne the previous eighteen
months under the rules it shows that l.no
have been appointed In two years. Every
one of the examinations have been open to
all alike , without regard to political or rc-
llclous opinions. About 2,000 republicans
and about 2,030 democrats have secured places
in the public service under tlio civil service
act. The report states that political assess
ments have been In n considerable measure
suppressed. Solicitation and pressure for ap
pointments have been greatly limited. Mem
bers of congress have been lellovod from
such annoyance. The ropoitconcludes with
a statement that the commission has had at
all times the cordial support of the president
and itis cabinet.
Before the Committee Yesterday The
Commissioner On the Stand.
WASHINGTON , March 25. General IJlack ,
commissioner of pensions , was further ex
amined by the senate committee on expendi
tures of public money this morning. In re
ply to Plumb ho said there was nothing in
the records to connect Congressman Pettl-
bono with the case except the .statement of a
special agent that ho bad been told by Dr.
Maloncy that claimant was an opponent of
Pettlbone , but he had a'great ' deal of evi
dence outsldo of the records.
Senator Cullpm culledinp the case of Joseph
W. Filer of IMoomlngton , 111. , and asked
what there was peculiar about It.
General lilack .said lifer's pension had
been rated at § 12 par month until Senator
Cnllom wrote a letter to Commissioner Dud-
Icy telling him that as Fifcr was good and
true ho was anxious to have his pension
rated nt § 2 } per month , and this was done.
It was lust this class'ot cases , General lilack
said , wnlch had led to llio'chargcs In his an
nual report. In rciily to Senator Cullom ,
the commissioner said asu'rorttcr ' : of fact ho
had never heard of the Flfcr case when ho
made his report , nor until 'after ' tlic resolu
tion of investigation ihqit been introduced by
Senator Harrison. Ilc&was'nsked ' if no had
not in i'act been ransacking the tiles of his
office since that resolution was lntrodue.il to
find material to support the statements In his
report. He said" ho had caused considerable

Manning's Condition is Apppnrcntly
Growing More Serious.
WASHINGTON , March 25. It is stated at
tlic treasury department that Secretary Man
ning slept well during the night and that his
condition is improved this morning.
Dr. Hamilton said to an Associated press
reporter nt 1:30 jt. in. that the secretary was
holding his awn and that no material change
had occurred in his condition since yester
day. The physicians will have another con
sultation this afle'rnoon.
Secretary Manning's condition to-night is
somewhat Improved. At 11 o'clock ho was
reported as being very comfortable. To an
Associated press reporter the secretary's son
.said that , while they could not consldei his
father as out of danger , tlio improvement
this evening gave them much hope.
At midnight Dr. Lincoln , who had just loft
the secretary , said ho found him somewhat
improved. Any marked change for tlio bet
ter was not to bo expected for some days , and
the fact that no change for the worse had oc
curred was encouraging. The secretary had
the entire use of all his limits , but there was
a slight weakness ofhls light side. Ho was
resting quietly when ho lelt the house.
Ai.iiA.xy , March 22. Many senators , as-
scmblv men nnd prominent citizens have re
ceived telegrams from Washington stating
thai Secretary Manning is very low nnd has
sent for his family.

A Missouri Pacllic freight train under the
guard ot a largo fore , of pollco succeeded In
making Its way from - < i union depot this
morning lo llio city Urn , without oncoun-
lerliiK any Interference from the strikers. It
Is not known how far beyond this city it has
Great crowds of men , women and children
gathered around the route taken by the
freight train , and sovural attempts were
made to uncouple the raw , but the rioters
werodrlvun oil' by the nolico and dispersed.
The statement made that the men employ
ed in the various railroad yards in
Kast St. Louis would strike at 3
o'clock ; thls afternoon Is verified.
Tlio railroad ofllclals now admit they
confidently expected their men to go out nt
that time. This new strike will comprise nil
of Wlcgins' ferry , and will effectually block
all freight traflloto this city , for no trans-
ferine can then bo done.

ST. Louis , March 25. Tlio expectation
which grow into serious apprehension about
noon to-day about the switchmen in the yards
of all the railroads centering In Kast St
Louis going out this afternoon , cry.staltzed
Into a solid fact at : i p , m. , when all the cn-
cincs In the yards set up a shrill and pro
longed whistling and all the men walked out.
Dctwccn 11 n. m. nnd 1 p. m. a committee of
District Assembly 93 , Knights of Libor , went
through all llio yards and .served an order on
all knights to iinlt work at n p. m. This
order was coupled with a request addressed
to the switchmen who weio not Knlehts
of Labor , asking them to join llieir
fellow-workmen and also go out.
How well this order was obeyed and the
request complied with was shown when on
the sounding of the whlstlo at : t p. m. all the
yardmen In the place walked out and left the
yards doseitcd. No question ol wages was
Involved , and It is freely stated , but not on
the authority of any Knights of Labor
official , that the orders sent to the men
was sininiy an extension and enlarge
ment of the strike on the Gould
svstom and Initiative of a general strike on
nil the roads east of tlia Mississippi river.
So far about 125 men are known to be out ,
but It Is reported to-night that all of the shop
men of Iho Cairo Narrow gnago , and perhaps
ono olhcr road , quit work or will do so to
morrow. Some of the roads will attempt to
move trains to-morrow and a good deal of
apprehension Is felt for tlio result.

And it is further required that the com

The legislative commllteo appointed to
visit suitable localities for a soldiers' home ,
reported to-day. Their report is very volu

tlio twenty places visited. It presents In
tabulat d form the answers which the vari
ous localities give to the questions of the
committee , showing the resources available , i
of water , drainage , building material , rail
road facilities , etc. The report , while describ
ing the various propositions made to the com
mittee and setting forth the desirable poluls
of each , does not decldo In favor ot
any one , but closed with the recommenda
tion that both houses ot the legislature meet
In an Informal joint caucus and settle the lo
cation there. To-night the feeling among
the members seem to be setting In fuvor of
Burlington , as the other advantages there urn
strengthened by the prospect that If congress
should , In the next few years , establish
another soldiers' homo for Illinois , Iowa and
