A Very Sick Man.

WASHINGTON , D. C. , Jan. 8 )
General Alfred H. Terry Is a very 111 man.
His condition of health has been no secret to
his Immediate staff for moro thunnjcni
past , but It was only a few weeks ago that
the matter became public through the appli
cation of the geneial for a four months'leave
of abseni c. A medical examination at
the time gave Bright's disease as the diagno
ses and perfect rest and change of climate ns
the temporary remedy. The grav ity of the
ease was kept from the public and the facts
in all their startling prophesy aio now llrst
nmdo public. General Terry is said in army
circles In Washington to bo hopelessly 111. Ho
Is at present in Florida , where a slight Im-
piovemcnt in his sjmptoms is said to bo
noted. A nj. thing moro than temporary re-
lltf is not anticipated. These In a position to
know assert that General Terry , at the ex
piration of his present leave , will make a
peremptorj' demand to bo placed on the rc-
tiied list. The news has cicatcd considerable
ngitatlonln armj'clrclcsalthough nothing of a
public nutuie is suld , and applicants for the
promotion of which will ensue uro legion
General Terrj 's retirement will mean a new
major g ( nciul and a new brigadier to Hll the
\acancj' , with promotions down the line nf-
fzuted bj' the removal of the regimental
commander. General Miles' friends arc al-
readj' iu the Held to push the claims of their
fuvoiitoius an aspiiant for Terry's shoes.
His influence thiough the Shcimans and
Cameron * is thought to bo unusually stioug.
Whether it will be sufficient to overslough
the claims of f tcneral Crook.thc ranking hi ig-
ndler , is problematic. Crook , us the tanking
officer of the next guide , lias the argument of
Hcmoritj' Iu his favor , and the iccoidoftho
longest and most successful war and fionticr
ncrv ice of any officer in the grade. But kiss
ing goes by favors in promotions , and the
longest polo will knock down the double
stars in this us It bus done in other cases
For the brlgadicrship ten cavalry colonels
mid twenty-four commanders of Infantiy
regiments are eligible , and all arc convinced
that thej' have claims. Colonel Albert G.
Brackett , of the Third cnvnlry , and Generals
Kautz and Moirow , of the Eighth audTvven-
t.y-Hrst regiments of Infantry , ate niostpiomi
nently mentioned.
Interest in the light for the coming va-
r.xncy in the corps of Judge ( idvoeates , U. S
A. , for which Lieutenant Dudley , of No-
biaska , Is an applicant , Is deepening in army
circles at the capital. It Is stated by re
sponsible parties that the appointment will
go , in all probability , to ono of the officers
not acting Judge advocates in thodepait-
nicntul stations. Ttiero are live of these , all
holding the tempoiury rank of captain of cuv-
ulij' under the net of July 5 , 1by4 , natnelj' :

Is also lumored that it is possible that Lieu
tenant B. Gutowood , late acting Judge advocate -
cato and now uK > n the stun of General
Miles , may bo tendeied the honor. Lieutcn
tint Gatewood is a hiavo officer and has been
during several campaigns in charge of the

It Is said that Geneial Miles is actively iu-

It Is not expected thatanj' measure of gicat

many bills introduced last VA'edncsdnj' huvo
not vet been pi luted and the moro important
committees of the house have vci.v little to

meeting of the committee on nilcs will bo
called early this week to consider
various proposed changes in the

The Judiciary committee will lepoit somoun-

Springer on Statehood.
W SIIINOTON , Jan. 8 , Spilnger , chairman
of the committee on ten itoiics , said today :
"Vcrj' piobablj' enabling acts will be passed
for somcof the temtoiies ; that is , wo may
puss an act enabling some of the tcrritoiies
to adopt state constitutions nnd construct the
nineliinciy of state govei nment , j'
to recognition us states. The admission of a
new state Is \eryimpoitant matter and
cannot bo done on n meio application or on
iiiijr mere iirithomutical basis Some
how nn impression has gone
nbioad that the terutoi v must have a ccitnin
population to qualify it for admission There
is no law and no custom about it. The ad
mission of a now state is cntiiely n mutter of
legislative discietion It is within the power
of congress to ctect "No Man's Laud" into a
state and admit it to the union. The state of
Illinois was admitted when she had less than
40,000 population. Dakota has over 000,000.
Congress , in its discretion , may exclude Da

Ninon , Neb , Jan. 0 [ Correspondence

Especially has this been the case with the

LiINOSTOV , Neb , Jan. 5 To the Editor
of the Bin : Noticing the statements of
Charles Fiaucis Adams , General Monovv
and otheis , Hint the rainfall is and has been
mci easing throughout the west , I wnto to
icquest the piiwloga of contiadicting such
statements so far as thej' refer to Lincoln ,
Keith and Chejeuno counties in Nebt.isku.
It is gcnerallj' believed and to some extent
conceded , that rainfall has followed cultiva
tion , but tlio belief and concession is based
upon ignoianco of facts or misicprcscntation
as the case may bo ; as neaily every old set
tler or pioneer may mid will testify. There
his not been an increase of rainfall in the
above I'aracd terntorj- , but a more neai Ij
equal distiiiratiOHOf the annual amount oi
inlnfall , or Instead of coming in floods , vvatci
sjwuts and cloudbursts , as it did ten jeuis
ago , it now comes in showen equally dis
tnbutcd throughout the VIM ions seasons.
As a proof of the statement that the rainfall -
fall oiiginally curao in Hoods as I have
descnbed , I refer jou to an y old settler in
either of the tlueo named counties. Upon higli
points and hills in vauous localities , can be
found dead timber and wood , evidently car
i led theio by the water , as there mo no hull
cations that it natur.dljglow there , and
w icds of such velocitj' as to eairy such log'
are unknown in this poition of the globe
Allow me also to cite the fact that bones ol
animals and pieces of wood ma often found
many feet below the surface of the earth.
As pioof of thoiisseitlon that the rainfall i'
mot o equally ( list ! United thioiiffhoutthe jeai
and that such floods ai o rat ely , if ev er , known
I lofer jou to any person who has been o
lesidcnt of the described teiutoij the presenter
or the post j ear. I bulicvo that the cultiva
tion of the land has brought about thli
change , making the countrvfarmoro valuable
as an agricultuial district than it was a half i
of but I ' the statement
s > coio veais ago , dcnj'
that the annual amount of rain fai
was inci eased in the least. During a ceitali
portion of the jcar , vapor d.illy uuses fion
the melting snows on the mountains. Yean
ago there was no cultivated land In tliii
countrj' , and little attraction for thesi
clouds , hcnco thej' were cairied ut the will o
the winds , until they mot some cold cuireir
of air , when thoj' would suddenly condense
dash upon the earth and rush off , scared ]
dampening the foil to the depth of an inci

NEW YOUK , Jan. 8 , [ Special Telegram to

and his daughter at the chantj- ball has set
; ossips to marveling as to what had become
of Mine. Schilling , whoso desertion of the

than a nine dajs wonder. The suggestion
that she Is now secluded in a house on the

acknowledge that Muic. Schilling
was at her parent's house for two or three
dajs after her mjstic departure from the
Cus mo. but that , oa soon ns circumstances
assuicd privacj' , she hastened to Canada.
There she stopped for some six weeks not
in n convent us was gencrnllj" presumed but
at the house of some friends of her father.
Fiom thcro she went to England and thciuo
to the estate of sonrp relatives In Italy , quito
near the buth place of Giovanuo. That she
has been in this country since that time is
denied by these who pretend to know nil
about the uftair. And they further claim
that she bus made no special endeavor to
conceal her whcieabouts or idcutitj * . They
sij that she has been met in Homo within
the last few months by Americans tiavcling
abroad and that she has resumed her maiden
name of Victoi m Moroslni.

hotel lobbies have been crowileil , wlillo the

The Wilson leadets are evidently much

had enough votes pledged in wilting
to re elect him , but they have disci edited
their own words by the heroic efforts they
aio now making to check the tide that is tun

the state to theiescue , though they still in
sist that his re election Is absolutely safe and

Di s MOIMS : , la. , Jan. 7. [ Coricspondoueo
of the Unn. ] All week long the membcis
elett of the Twenty-second Assem
bly hiuo been coming in and the prospect is
that not a member will bo absent w hen the
gavel falls at 2 p. in. Monday. As usual
they arc attended by a horde of office sockets
whociovvd the hotel lobbies and make it
interesting for the unfoitunato mcmbeis
whom they succeed in button-holing. The
new members lather like the attentions paid
to them by these willing to hold ofllco for
their country 'a good , but the old members
rcgai d the whole thing as an unmitig.ited
nuisance. Many le.idlug members have been
hero for some days , endeavoring to map out
a poicy to bo followed in regard to the uiil-
roiid question. Bills to prohibit free passes
to public ofticcrs and otheis ; to icduco pas
senger faro to 2 cents per mile , and piovid-
ing for the election of railioad commissioncis
by the pcoplo with power to fix frcightarates
and will bo introduced into the house early
in the session , and will go through that body
with n rush. The senate will piobably con
cur in all of. the ubovu measures ,
though the corjKjration lawyers will
fight them to the bitter end. These
are all of the bills affecting railroads
likely to leceivo serious consideration ,
unless an effect should bo inline to icpcal
that section of the statute , which authon/es
communities to vote aid to new lines. Should
the Funnels' alliance , which iserv stiong
in this state , push this question with dotei-
mination , a bill of this character would pass
the house , but would baldly go through th'o
scnato. Unless this is douo the matter will
Ho over to the ne\t session.
Lively tanv.issing has been going on all the
week on the qunjtkm , who shall bo speaker
of the house. So far , six candidates have
entei ed the race fortlmt position. They are :
Silas Wilson , of Cass , 12. C. Koueh , of Ljon ,
Albert Head , of Giccne , K W. Wilbur , of
riojd , W. II. Uodmnu. of Powesbiek , L A.
KiJfY , of Louisa , and .1 JO. Hen j lull , Of Polk.
Mr. Wilson is icgarded as the most radical
nnti-inonopC'list and is stiongly suppoitod by
the farmers especially of the hlope. Mi.
Mr. Hoach comes irvw noithwcstern Iowa ,
the section of big rcpubi'can ' majorities , and
has a huge following. Mr. Head was
elected speaker two jc.ns ago bv the antimonopoly -
monopoly clement , and icdeoiwd his ple.K'Cs
till the \cry last dujs of thes session ,
when ho appointed a sifting coinmmittec.
against the piotest of his strongest fi lends ,
made up of a majority of coiporatlon strikcis
lor the expicss purpose , many think , of
pigeon-holing every nnti monopoly measure ,
liy this act ho forfeited the confldcnco of his
former supporters and is practically out of
the race. Mr. Wilbur comes from the north
eastern part of the state and will l eceivo the
almost solid support of that section. Mr.
Hedman is a lawyer of no mean ability and is
being supported by the ccntial part of the
state with considerable vigor. Ho made an
excellent record two jears ago in favor of the
people and is winning votes every day. Mr.
Hiley is the distinctive corporation candidate.
Tvv o j cars ago he intioduced the notorious
snow fence bill to condemn land for snow
fences which came near being Juggled
through the Icgisl.ituic , and made a recoid in
favor of exti.ivagant and reckless appropria
tions. He , also , ispi.ictically outof the race.
Six weeks ago the nomination of Mr. Herry-
hill was a foregone conclusion , but ho de
clined to make an active canvass for the po
sition , and many thought ho would not ac
cept the nomination mid bi ought out other
candidates. His friends , however , arc urg
ing his past record us leader of the nnti mon-
opolj foices two jcars ago in the legislature ,
as well as his conceded ability and litness for
the position , with excellent success.
Ho is undoubtedly the second choice of two-
thiidsof the members , and may oven bo
nominated on the Hist ballot , Should Mr.
Hern hill diop out of the race , the spcahoi's
mantle w ill fall upon Wilson , of Cass , or Hed-
man , either of whom would make a very ac
ceptable piesiding officer.
For chief clerk of the house four candi
dates have enteicd the list. Thej are Hrvson
Bruce , of Gaiden Grove ; Georeo H. Nichols ,
of DCS Molncs ; Deputj Superintendent of
Public Instruction Sidney A. Poster , of
Marshalltown , and D. C. Kalp , of Ida Giovo.
Mr. Foster served in the same capacity four
years ago and gave good satisfaction and will
likely be successful again. Mr. Kalp is a
member of the Fanners' alliance and Is re
ceiving considerable tncoui.igemrnt from the
farmer clement. The contest is between him
and Mr. Foster.
William Yoman , of the Independence Bul
letin ; Uobert Hunter , of Sioux City ; L. C.
Brock , of Marshalltown , and ex-Secretary
D. D. tonnan ) , ui o candidates for secretary
of the senate. Mr Yoman is quite likely to
bo 2'iecessful , though the others will have
some stic.1ltth.
United Stut J ? Senator .lamps F. Wilson is
quartered at the KiYiwood and industriously
interviewing the member ? Ho will quito
likely bo ro elected , though M' ' . dis
trusted by both cxtiemo factions of tiiS.uai'ty.
The railroads and coiporations strikers are i'l
favor of Hon W , P Hepburn , of Clannda ,
but they cannot poll over twenty votes in
both houses The ladlcal anti-monoi > ollsts ,
under the lead of Senator Finn , of Taj lor ,
would prefer Judge Heed , of Council Bluffs ,
but neither party is organised or prepared to
makoa vlgoious light. The Homestead , the
organ of the Farmcis' alliance , however , Is
jmbllshlng the senator's moid with the evi
dent pui ) > ese of opKsing | ) his election , and a
strong candidate may bo brought out in a few
daj s Many members would prefer a soldier ,
but how far this feeling may Influence their
votes remains to. bo seen This legislature is
made up Inrgilj'of joung men A m.ijoiity
of the house is under tortjMlvo , and about
twenty under Unity-five soveial of the
ablest 'uembersj 1 he farmers in that body
number flftj ono and the hnv.vcrs only fif
teen. Tliis Is the largest representation of
farmers and the smallest of hiwjois
for many jours. In the senate ,
liovv ever , thnre are twenty lawyers and only
ten tillers of the soil. It Is predicted that
theio will be a deadlock between the hou , o
and the senate on the most Important ques
tions , on account of the largo spiinklliiK of
eoriwratlon attorneys among the members of
the upper house.
An extremely lively onuvuss Is being mndo
for the ofllco of state printer. The leading
candidates are : lleoigo H. Hagsdale , of the
LeMars Sentinel ; W. W. Junkln. of the Fair-
Held Ledger , and Krncst Ho for , of DCS
Molncs , editor of the only Gotman mohtbl-
tion paper In the state. This fact makes him
a strong candidate and the probabilities mo
that ho will obtain the position. Senator
Cnssatt will not wait for the new election or-
doied , but will piesent his claims dlicct to
the scnato , and may bo admitted through
senutoi Ial coin tesy. Kr.x.

what the platform should contain , and us ho
is the stamlaid beaicr , his suggestions will
go very far In nil things The only matter
that will engage the attention of the com en-
lion seriously is tlio the selection of a vim
picsidcut , and national conventions uic not
often dohijed in making second dioUos
Tlio inducements for convention aio hugely
political. Indiana was republican when she

net .icy to insure dcmociatic national success
With the national convention at the Hoosier
capitol and a Hoosiei nominee for viio picsi

bo luigcly multiplied. This convention is
looked upon by Indiana congressmen as vug-
cut. "
