some remaiks In suppoit of the mca uio
which Is characteristic ol him. The bill , as
It came to the senate fiom thn house , was In
exact form as Ihat proposed by Senator Van
Wjck some time ago. The bill under consid
eration , ns passed by the senate , graded the
pensions from SI to 824 n month , according
to disability. Senator Van Wyck held at
that time , ns ho did to-day , Hut It would be
bettci to place all on the same basis so as to
avoid complication and Injustice In classlll-
cation. He thought It .should bo unitorm ;
that If a man who faithfully served the union
In the late war was now disabled from any
cause so that he cannot earn a complete live
lihood ho otnrlit to bo provided for by the
government and should not bo subjected to
running the gauntlet ot classification. Sen
ator I3air ! , author ot the amended bill under
dissetisstou , maintained for the original foim
ot the bill , providing for classification , ns did
nlso Senator 1'latt nnd others. This
bill , Senator Vnn Wvck argued , was designed
for nn entirely dllTerent purpose than the
laws In force. The present laws seek to pay
for damages done In their propoitlon , as
more is given for the loss ol two legs or arms
than the loss ot ono leg or ai in , etc. The hill
under consideration , ho said , was designed
as > a charity , a gift to those who are disabled
now and who cannot earn a livelihood , but
who were not Injured or disabled in service
and he did not think the line distinctions and
disci ( initiations on account of the character
of the dls.ibililv should bo observed as Iho
one observed In the existing law. Ho ob
jected specially to the delays and emhariass-
mentswhlch this clnslluVntlon necessitates
and the Injustices It vvoiks unavoidably. Ho
spoke ot the inclination of the pension de-
pal tmcnt to keep within as n at row limits ns
possible the intentions of a liberU pension
law. He dcpiccatcd the fact that theio aio
JW.OOOsoldieis In the poor and alms houses of
the country unable to earn a suppoit and yet
tin able to get a pension. Ilonlso mentioned the
poor men who served their countiy faithfully
and well who aio inlndlni : organs and other
wise begglnir n llvln ? . It was n shame to
Irarglc at this subject. Let the government
come to thesunpoit of these poor men and
come without tliuso line distinctions and ccn-
suies. This bill would also give justice to
an army of poor people who aio unable tenet
net it at the pension oflico ovvlns to these
rules and limitations moposed by the sena
tor from New Hampshire ( Hlaii ) . "There
aie , " said Senator Van Wyck , "a lot of men
In the house at this very moment hoping the
senate will amend this bill In some way so
It will have to go back there and its final
passage bo defeated , t sincerely hope the
hill will pass just as It now is. " Senator
Van Wyck won , the bill massed ns amended
by the house , and now only requiios the

which forced the water baclc nuon the town
In a frightful manner. In thirty minutes
It attained a depth of tivo to six feet In the
main street , running with a swift current ,
carrying with It ice , fences , lumber and
debris generally. All tun residences on the
lower sldo of Main stieet witli tew excep

feet of water on the hut tloors.
Not more than thieo or four families

can be formed ot the loss and destruction ot
last night's Hood. An unsuccessful attempt
was made to break the Ice gorge with dyna

It is unfortunate tor Canadian Interests
that n general election should be In progress
nt a tlmo when 0111 Amoilcan nclghbois are

coso speeches deliveied In the United States
senate the other day need not be taken
seriously , nevertheless It Is abundantly evi
dent liom the bettor class of American
journals that our neighbors aio deteimlned
to adopt a spirited loiolgn policy in plain
English , to steal our lisli and lo
punish us it wo attempt to
mevent them. We siilfor from American
pioiudlco against Kimland and fiom Eng
land's unwillingness and ability to unko our
case her own , and betwixt the two it will bo
a miracle If wo are not shoiu. The loieign
ollieo will make n show of piotccling our
rights , but the capital consideration with
Loid Salisbury will bo not the justlco of our
own case so much ns the necessity lor main-
tainlnir eoidial relations witli Ihe United
Stales. The power lo suspend Intcicoiirso
which Is to be vested In I'resident Cleveland by
the Kdnuinds nnd Hclmont bills Is to prevent
our ships lioin entering Ameiiean ports and
to stop our railioad cars ami locomotives at
