This hit nt Chamberlain was received with
cheers , while T. W. Russell swallowed with
deliglit this sugardd morsel thrpwn to llim.
Russfcll has boon sent all over the country by
the torlcs and unionists aa advocates of their
cause. Ho now displays many signs of a
tcnaoncy to flop over. Parnoll's allusion to
him seemed almost llko the announcement of
KussGU's approaching reception into the
nationalist fold. Moreover , when 'Parhcll
made the allusion to the impossibility of con
tinuing to govern Ireland from Westminister ,
Russell Joined in ihO hearty cheers oftho
regular Parnellitcs.
Presently Chamberlain stood up ' andtbb-
an his remarks by quoting the' American
ism "catch on , " but the phrase la not ao
much of a novelty as Joe seem ? , to failoy , I
hope ho has brought back some fresher say-
lugs and some livelier jokes , than this. 'Ho
made , as1 ho always docs , n shrewd , tolling
speech , contending that It was n gross * In
justice to wipe off the arrears rent and leave
all the other arrears outstanding. Ha had n
llvoly passagc-at arms with Dillon , and It
cannot be said that Dillon got { ho best of it.
Chamberlain Is an exceedingly prickly.nwk-
ward customer to lay hold of. .Nqthing
seems to'shako his possession or disturb-tlio
clear exercise of his faculties. He Succeeded
this aftorrioon in impressing oven his ene
mies with his ncutcness and ability.
Dillon delivered One of his fiery harangues
arid stirring enough to move the most slug
gish heart. Irish eloquence has no more
brilliant a repre'senta'tlvo iu the house.
The vote was first taken on Parnoll's nialn
bill , which was rejected by 823 to 248 , a .ma
jority of 83 , only 99 votes short of a full house.
Tho'amcndment offering to treat all creditors
nliko was then adopted , but thus , the whole
question is left whcrq it was lqst.ycar. A
tenant must pay nil his debts or none. Wo
shall , however , hear much nioro of the ar

It was flrst taken to the otnperor's

then Sir Morrcl Mackenzie went to place it
on the tomb , as the inhabitants of San Rumo
had begged him. Both the empress and

similar to that which this city experienced

to ox-so\dlera \ of the confederacy ,
na between men who had boon disloyal , said
that1 several senators on both sides had re
quested hfm td have tho. bill Ho over still
further. , llji therefore asked its poitporio-
monv (1111 next Tuesday when ho would hsk
thb 'senate to dispose of the pending quest tori ,
the second reading of the bill.
Mr. 'v'nnco denied the correctness of the
statement ina'do yesterday by 'Blair ns 'to '
there being 20,600 ox-confedorato soldlors ! In
the stnto of North Carolina atone who had
lost limbs , and many of them are destitute
and in alms houses. There wore none in
alms houses arid none had died there.
Mr. Blair explained that ho had meant to
say wounded soldlors. Tlio bill was laid over
as proposed.
The sonnUi then proceeded to take nn and
act upon thb bills on the calendar. The bill
providing for Inspection of meats fbr expor
tation and prohibiting the Importation of
adulterated articles of food and drink , was
atnondc'd sb as to allow Iho inspection of
meats at the place of packing , aiid passed.
Other bills passed as follows :
To allow soldiers and sailors who lost both
hands , or the use of both hands , $100 per

The house bill for the relief of volunteers
of the Forty-oichth regiment of Iowa infan
try , ns amended by a substitute entitled , "For
the relief of certain volunteer soldiers. " The
substitute provides that the act of Aprlll 2i3 ,
1872. in relation tb bounties , shall have , the
restrictive words , llboforo August 0 , 1801 ,
struck oat , and that the claims of all
soldiers and their -heirs who Jind been
denied the bounty of $100 granted by the act
of April 23 , 1872. shall bo reconsidered , al
lowed and paid , If found correct and Just ,
provided the soldlors wore enrolled or enlisted -
listed prior to July 22 , 1S01 , Jor three years.
The bill reported by Mr. Blair allowing n
pension of 52o a month to women enrolled
during the" war ns army nurses , and who ren
dered six months' services , having been
reached , the report was read , in which It
was stated that the beneficiaries under It
would not" average irioro than six or eight to
each state.
Mr. Beck called for the yeas and nays , re
marking that of course this bill , like nil pen
sion bills , would pass. It would apply to
every colored woman who had cooked , for
soldiers' during six months , and according to
the report just refTd , such women were en
titled ' 'Roinan matrons. " Ho hoped the com
mittee on pensions would nt least do the scn-
nto'tho Justice to call on the secretary of war
for the number of enrolled .foinalo nurses
during the war , so the senate might know
within a million dollars of what the bill waste
to take out of ho treasury. The bill under
objection wont over. Other public
bills on the callondar that were passed were
the. following :
The house bill to divide the great Sioux
Indian reservation into separate , smaller
reservations , -with a substitute , being the
senate bill to divide a portion of the reserva
tion of Iho-Sioux nation of Indians in Dakota

Mr. Rogers , of Arkansas , In opposing the
bill , said It would Involve the expenditure of
nearly $100,000,000. The proposition was
ill-considered ana vlblous in its
tendency. Messrs. Tillman , Taulbco
and Lane opposed the bill. Messrs.
Lodge , Compton , Oingley and Tarsnoy advo
cated it. The committee then rose and Iho
bill went over.
Bills were passed to prevent the product of
convict labor * iom bblng furnished to or for
the Use of any department of the govern
ment and from being used in public build
ings or other public works and to prevent

The house then went into the committee of

Tn another offlco It was noticed that

brightest boy wasrunningababy bucket
shop on his own account , with u cent a
point as tlio standard of value , instead
of a dollar as on 'Change , und had Initi
ated all his associates in the full mystery
of stock gambling. They wore trading
long anfl short , and iniltatlnjj' on a mi
croscopic scale the operations of the
customers oi the offlco , some taking1
bulls as thbir models , dntt fcbmb betting
with thb bears. The baby bucket shop
keeper was oxacting-a-tiny nromluin on
profits and scooping in the losses quite
like an adult. Ho was discharged , and
tharost were made topromiso that they
wbuld never transgress again.
Ono of the shrewdest and quickest
boys that over turned up in Wall street
obtaineo. a place in a Gorman banking
house as an ofllco boy at $5 a week less
than three years ago. IIo Goes not get
more than $8 or 310 now , but , in the
meantime , ho has grown to bo seven
teen or eighteen years old , and has bc-
como such a figure that the best way to
describe his jippoai'anco is to say that
ho dresses llko John Bloodgood. Like
the garments of that leader of fashion
and popular broker , his clothes are al
ways neat and chosen withgontooltijslo ,
being made of the costliest materials ,
cut to fit ns fluid fits whatever it fills ,
and yet never gaudy or loud. LastTUos-

"Oh , nicely , " saidho , "though I had
almdwookof it. 1 dropped 81,200 on
wheat. "
A little questioning brought out the
fact that thq boy hau begun , as all oth
ers do , by small dickering in bucket ,
shops , Imsod on what was Bai'd or done
in the otllco whore lie worked. By put
ting the bucket shop winnings by , and
combining with another youth on a
good tip or ttvo , ho had gathered capi
tal enough to make a 1'egular trade on
the stock market. That had turned out
well , and ho had then become a
I'Offular gambler on 'Change. Viewing
this case in ono way , the bucket shop
was certainly to hlamo for making a
gambler of him , but ho got his points
from the legitimate gamblers , and is
now ono of thorn , and as good as any of
them as long as ho wins and his em
ployer doesn't find him out.
But the stories that nro being told to
influence the public against the small
quotation peddlers do not stop within
any such limits as those above narrated.
They contain talcs of tlioso bankers and
brokers driving about at midnight to
this liouso and that , mid bogging men
to surrender chocks cashed during that
day for a wayward sou who has forged
to get money to moot trading losses , and
who has then become frightened and
confessed to the rich father ere the ex
posure of the next day came. They include -
cludo tales of potty thefts by some
clerks , and of the ruining of homos by
others , who have got the fever without
money to feed It. AltOjgothcr the im
pression left in nn outsider's mind' is
that the district attorney might as well
go on with thoprosecution of the bucket
shops now , and that , if ho could next
turn his attention lo tlio regular ex
changes , no great harm would result to
the world.

Provisions received more attention than on

made the market comparatively attractive ,

by persistent hammering , assisted by con
siderable selling on atop orders , the price
