Members of the fowa delegation to-day In
formed Tim HKB correspondent that there
was no doubt tluit the house bill to quiet the
title to the seniors on Iho Dos Moinoj river
lands In Iowa would bo passed by Iho senate
the first of next week. The urosldent , they
say , beyond n reasonable doubt , will vote the
bill , nllhough some of the features which
met his objection and caused him to vclo the
first bill of this character , are not in this
measure. They say ho will now wnnl lo
veto it , if for no olher reason , lo keep his
record straight on trio matter.
lIUIIIton'M A CVNIII1IATB tOH SlTAKBIl.
At u meeting of the Michigan republicans
nt the residence of Senator Stockbridgo last
evening , where Ihey were entertained at
dinner , It was decided to formally place Con
gressman Burrows in the race for the
spcakcrship of the FIfty-llrst congress.
The Iowa men will favor the selec
tion of General G. D. Henderson ,
of that state , for the same place ,
nnd they expect to have Iho sup
port of members from Mlnneaotn and Ne
braska to back them. The foimal entry of
thcso gentlemen Into the race lor the chief
position In the next congress , makes a very
largo field , and complicates the calculations
of those who wcronvowcd candidates before.
Iho list now comprises the names of Messrs.
Hoed , McICInloy , Buttorwoith , Cannon , Bur
rows nud Henderson. Mr. Heed's friends
think thai the fact thai the Maine man has
twice received the caucus nomination before
for the position , will have great weight in
securing the support of other members , who
nro not committed by neighborhood or state
pride , to support the candidates of their vari
ous states , and that the supporters of several
of the olher candidates will vote for Ueed
after the first ballot , lliero is a decided dis
position among the mernbois of the Now
York delegation to support Mr. Head , ns
ngalnst the others , but there is no unanimity
of sentiment in this respect. Some
of the Nov.- York members hnvo a
grievance against Mr. Heed. They assert
that he lins Handled them wllh "u mailed
haml" on several occasions ; that ho is too
much given to nrroirnnce , nnd that he would
bo likely to run things to suit himself if
placed in control of affairs.
Mr. McKinley has numerous friends in
every state delegation.
AI.I.ISON NOT ANXIOUS.
Senator AllUon told mo to-day that ho did
not want a place In the cabinet , not even in
the treasury department , which people hnvo
supposed was his ambition. Ho said he
would much prefer to keep his seat In the
senate , and lot some othorman fnrtn Iowa bo
chosen to represent that state among the
president's counsellors. Still , if General
Harrison desired him to leave tlio senate fern
n new Hold of duty , ho would yield Ills own
preferences and accept. Not a word has
over been exchanged between them on the
subject , however , either by tongue or pen ,
nnd ho had not the slightest Idea whether
Harrison had over consldcicd his name in
connection with Iho cabinet or not.
AN IOWAN 1OH TIIB CMIIVKT.
Editor Clnrkson , of DCS Molncs , was about
the capital this afternoon In conference with
members of the Iowa delegation. It is be-
llovcd thai Senator Allison , if tendered a po
sition in President Harrison's cabinet , will
decline in favor of General Clnrkson. The
friends of the latter are quite eonliclent that
ho will bo prominently connected with Die
AN jVniA SESSION XKXT SI'HIXO.
In pursuing their canvass for the spcakcr
ship for the Fifty-first congress , the four or
live aspirants to that position to-day encoun
tered a very decided belief among the re
publican members of the house thai thcro
will bo 110 tariff bill passed nt this session ,
nnd that President Harrison will call on
extra session to convene next April.
A 6OUT1IUHN CONTEST ,
General Chalmers , of the Third congres
sional district of Mississippi , has been hero
several days , feeling the republican pulse ,
ns to what policy will bo pursued
in pushing the contested elections
in the pouth where the. republicans have
been defrauded out of their certificates ,
Ho has received much encouragement , not
only from these who will bo members of Iho
next house , but from the republican national
committee. General Chalmers will contest
tun seat of his own opnoncnl. Morgan. Il
will bo remembered that Cnnlmeis conducted -
ducted n sensational nnd successful contest
in the Forty-seventh congress , Ho then
represented whnt was known as "Tho Shoe
string" district of Mississippi. It is uniler-
ntood that it will bo the policy of the repub
lican party to prosecute to the furthest ends ,
nil contests which nro believed to bo Just.
General Chalmers thinks ho will get his
teat , and that ho is very much outraged.
TUB SUNATC mu
lt Is now believed that Iho senate will not
Sisposuof its bill before some llmo In Janu
ary , und that its final consideration will bo
defeated In the houso. The pioposcd nb-
fence of Chairman Mills from the city is
taken ns ono Indication Ihat the democrats
do not intend to take action upon the senate
bill , when It goes to the Jiouso.
CANNONS 1O1I DM MIA.
A law was enacted In lb'0 appropriating
four condemned cannons to a soldiers' monument
ment nt Omnhn. At that time there were
no condemned cannons available , and in late
years , when there wns such nitjclcs , the law
Bcoms to have been overlooked. ' lleprcscntu-
tivo Dorsoy discovered it rcccnlly , made ap
plication for its fulfillment , and n requisition
lihs been Issued for four good wrought iron
cannon. They will bo tdilpjtcd to Omaha as
soon as possible , The cannons are very good
ones und can bo used In case of necessity.
All the army appointments have been do-
cidcd upon , but will not bo made public until
thu president nominates them to the senate.
It is stated by a friend , much concerned , that
thu name of Captain J. G. Bourke , ot the
Tnlid cavalry , will likely not go In for
nn inspector-generalship. His record
is acknowledged to be gilt-edged , his
character excellent , his claims very high ;
but the president is Inclined to believe that
the captain U young and can wait , und for
that reason nn older man should bo pro
moted. Captain Hourko's friends uro generally -
ally wry confident , however , that he will bo
prr > M ited.

lutiuiuto personal friend , snld to-day thut
General Algor would not go Into the cabinet ;
that ha did not want to bo placed on the shelf

A Useless Proceeding.
WASHINGTON , Deo. 7. Senator Sherman ,
In'spoahing to-day of the report of thu result
of the vote for presidential electors in
overal of the states transmitted by ttio sec
retary of state to the senate yesterday ,
under the terms of the law of 1857 , said his
objection to receiving the report was bas.ed
I upon a conviction of the usotossneis of \\\o \ \
I [ proceeding. If It was not unconstitutional ,
I Btwa extra-constitutional. Ho said bo had
I ppossd the bill all tlio way through on tlas
ground. If It wns Intended to bo nn ex
pression of power by the senate to control
in any way the right of the stnto to declare
the result of the vote in its Jurisdiction , It
was clearly unconstitutional. If it were
merely to have the result published
or declared , it was cxtra-constitu-
tlolml , in that the same thing
was otherwise provided for. U was on this
ground ho dcslied the report referred to the
committee on privileges and elections , in
order that It might there ba decided how to
dispose of the document.

bank suspension case h.tvo given the public
mind a severe shock. The most sanguine
friends of Mr. Chase , Iho absconding presi
dent , have ubuulonod the theory of his re
turning and adjusting matters. Where ho
has gone Is not dollnitely known , but a man
answering his description boarded the Knn-
sns City & Omnhn train at this
place the evening bcforo the failure
and rode ns far ns Fiurbury , where
ho took the through train for St. Jose.ih ,
There has been no further Intelligence from
him. An examination of the condition of tlio
institution discloses a very rotten state of
affairs. The books have been falsified so as
to make it appear that parlies , who hail
a balance on deposit , had overdrawn their
accounts ; money on drafts has been collected
and no remittances made to the creditors ;
drafts drawn on foreign batiks where no
credit existed ; names forged to instrumeuls ;
mortgages given on propoity , where no
property existed , or where it was owned by
other parlies , etc. The confidence of Iho
public In Chase rendered such criminal
notions very easy , and it was not until
brought face to fnco with the facts , that
faith in him was shaken. It is openly in
timated that there are others connected with
the affair , and that n thorough investigation
will create a further sensation. The raven
ous creditors have sobcd nil the available
property of the defunct institution , but there
Is not enough to satisfy a quarter of its in
debtedness. As far as known , no attempt has
been made for Chase's apprehension.

In an action where the creditors sought to

of limitation , barring actions for the re
covery of penalties , unless begun within ono

sustained the demurrer 'and dismissed the

WASHINGTON , Dec. 7. Action has been
taken by Secretary Wuilnoy , which leaves
no doubt as to the policy of this governmen
with regard to the case' of the American
steamer Ilnytlcn Republic , recently slozed at
Port-au-Pnncc , Haytl. The relenso of the
vessel has been demanded through the proper
diplomatic channels , and if the demand is
not complied with within a reasonable period
of titno , steps will bo taken to enforce it
Sccietary Whitney yesterday sent tele
graphic instructions to Hoar-Admiral Glen-
uardi , commandant at the Now York navy
yard , to have the ships Kichmond , Galcnan
and Yuntic prepared for sea ns soon ns pos
sible. The Idea is lo have them ready so
that Ihey can sail direct for Hayti early next
week. Orders have also been issued for
Hcar-Admiral Luce , comnianding the North
Atlantic squadron , to transfer his flag from
the Galena to the Richmond , and to use Ihat
vessel as his flagship on the expedition.
The oflleers of the state department aic , as
usual , reticent on the subject and will not ad
m it even that the release of the Huytlcn Kc
public has been demanded. Secretaiy Whit
ney this morning frankly admitted Ihat ho
had ordered three naval vessels to be got
ready as soon ns possible to start for Hu\ti.
Ilo added that the Haytien authorities , hav
ing referred the case of seizing the steamer
to this government , wo have reached a de
cision , and that , in short , is thai they have
got to give her up. It is unfortunate that
fever broke out on the Boston while she was
at Port-uu-Prmcc , and compelled her to leave
thai climale , otherwise the question might
have been settled before now.
Orders were issued tl.is morning
commandant of the Koifolk navy yard to
prepare the United Stales Slalos steamer
Oslpeo for sea service as soon as possible. It
is thought she will bo fully prepared to fol
low the olher sleaniers to Hayti within a few
It is learned this afternoon that the
action of Secretary Whitney in order
ing n licet of vessels to prepare
for an expedition to Hayti is duo , not so
much to an absolute refusal on the part of
that government to comply with the request
for the release of the soi2Cd American vessel
as to the dilatory taclics adopted by the
Haytien authorities in dealing with the ques
tion. Tlio position lakcn by Ibis government
is understood to be thai , ns the Haytien gov-
eriimenl deferred the arbitralion of the case
to this governincnl , they are virtually bound
by its decision , and that when they were in
formed by this government lhal Ihey had no
legal right to seize and detain the Hayticu
Republic , Ihey should have accepted the
situation and released the vessel. While
they hnvo not refused to do this , they are , il
is said , noting In such a procrastinating way
as to indicate a strong disinclination to accept
the Judgment against them.

to THIS 13m : . ] It is reported from Fort
Dodge that , despite the news that the house
had passed the bill to quiet the titles of bona
fide settlers on the DCS Moines river lands ,
considerable uneasiness exists among the oc
cupants of the disputed lands , oxvmgcliiclly
to the report published in tlio local paper to
day , that Richard Siicll had returned from
Kansas City and had announced his Inten
tion to disregard the congressional action ,
and evict at once the occupants of his land.
Mr. Snell is disposed to treat'tho bill lightly ,
believing it will bo vetoed by the president.
Ho is reported as savinc that the only effect
of the bill will bo to make settlements more
difllcult , by extending delusive hopes to the
squatters , and that all writs against settlers
on the Snell lauds would bo nluecd in un
officer's hands for immediate settlement. The
settlers , at Urst disposed to go without any
show of resistance , have gathered fiesh
courage from tlio action ot congiess , and
may not easily be dispossessed.

of the Michigan Central
Tamper With tlio Way Hllli.
Cuictao , Dee. 7. [ Special Telegram to
Tin : Bni : . ] A sensational forgery has boon
perpetrated on the Michigan Central railway
here , and some startling disclosures nro ex
pected to follow the Invcstlg it ! on , which is
now being made Not only will many of the
employes of the road bo1 removed , if their
guilt can bo established , but something not
far from kin to the county Jail will bo their
lot. One ot the biggest board of trade llims
Is also Implicated in the connivance of the
forgery as the ofllclnls of the Michigan Cen
tral believe and assert , having been between
certain employes of the road on the ono
hand , and the employes of the board of trade
ilrmon the other , nnd the compuiy i not
yet witling to say that the heads of the board
of trade concern woio entirely Innocent in
the matter. The forgery in question was
made on certain way bills on shipments of
grain to the east. The bills were made out ,
nnd charged on the basis of 2' ' cents les-
than the rnto ngrccd upon from Chicago ,
The shipments were made bj the Chicago
HI-HI , and how long they have continued no
ono knows. It is sufficient to say that Chair
man Blanchard of the Central Traffic asso
ciation , discovoicd It , and with Just the leust
bit of heat under the collar , ho hustled over
to the Michigan Central freight department
nnd informed the ngeut , Mr. Mi'ICav , of the
discovery. Mr. McKay was astounded. Ho
said ho didn't believe it , but Just the same
ho set In opointlon nearly every telegraph
wlro to HulTalo that the company had , and
the result was Hint the foigory of the \\iiy
bills was discovcied. Tlio shipments weie
stopped , and the rates collected up to their
full amount. '
The ofllcinls ot the rnnd were very reticent
this morning regarding the affair. One of
the morning p ipors published what pur
ported to bo a true report of the forgery , and
it was liintcd that instead of knowing noth
ing of the shipments in question , the road
him a thorough knowledge of them , and was
guilty of iv violation of the law ngiiln-tt dis
crimination. This morning nearlj every
freight ngent in Chicago among the Michi
gan Central's competitors was hinting that
the Michigan Central road was guilty , and
that the inter-statu commission should make
n thorough investigation. Ono of the officers
of the road , who dcslied that his name bo
not mentioned , said this morning : "The
president of the road began nn Investigation
this morning , and it will bo a thorough one.
It would surpiiso people If I named the firm
involved , but until the matter has been sifted
to the bottom the men wo believe to be guilty
shall bo nameless. Then , however , wo shill :
liuvjo no mercy , nnd will give all the facts to
the public. The Michigan Central road has
been guilty of no wrong act. Wo have simply
been imposed upon , and wo propose to make
somebody smart for it. It is not trueoithcr ,
that the shipper made an > thing , as wo dis
covered the fraud in time. "

worse beaten than the democratic parly

boon , in the history of men now living , a set
of men who felt so bully beaten as the dem-
ociutic represeutallves and senators Just

alized , disorganized are not adequate words
todescribo the condition of tiio democratic
part of congress. They have returned with
out plans , purposes or hopes. They do not
consult together. Every man is for himself.
ami no man seems to think of anything ex
cept to let the triumphant republicans do what
they please , with an occasional meek and
lowly objection and earnest determination to
get what they can in the general grab
game for their "dccstricks. " So far as the men
assembled nre concerned there Is no longer
any democratic party. If the disorganbation
which exists heio should extend to tlio rank

It is probably not so bad elsewhere as hero
that is to say , the army is probably less de
moralized than headquarters.
