Whllo it is qulto likely that , the rulbs proposed -
_ posed by the commlttoo , and which are still
\ > under discussion in the house will bo adopted
almost as they came from the committee
there Is very violent opposition among the
ranks of tbo oltlor men against that striking
Innovation which will permit tbo placing of
"ndors" on appropriation bills. Under the
rules of the house for years back It has been
Impossible to Introduce "now legislation" on
on appropriation bill , and some of tbo hottest
fights ever made in congress have boon made
.on this very subject. This method ot ( jagging
the house by Insisting on the passagi of some
certain bill by placing It on nn appropriation
bill and withholding the appropriation , un
less the bill was passed at thosnmo time , wai
a favored rule of the house until the Forty-
ninth congross. At tbat tlmo It was dofcated
by 205 nays with only sixty-five yeas.
_ Leading democrats lllto Bland , Blount ,
the Brcckonrldges , Herbert , O'Farroll.Mllls ,
Outhwaito and Sayors , all prominent mem
bers of tholr party today , wore violently op-
nosed to it. It was Itopt out of the Fiftieth
and Fifty-first congress , and now It flashes
up again , and It Is evidently the determina
tion of tbo rules committee to insist upon Its
passage it possible. But tbo men who fought
it In the past will again fight It , nnd It Is
likely that some compromise will bo arrived
at whereby the "riders" will bo restricted to
only such legislation as will reduce expendi
tures. It will bo romombotcd that in the
Forty , fourth congress the army appropria
tion bill failed of passage because the demo
crats insisted on tacking on the bill n "rider"
preventing the use of the military at tbo
polls , nnd that a special session of congress
was necessary to provide for the mainte
nance of tha army. It needs no argument to
show what an absolute and tyrannical power
this "rldor" rule will place In the bands ot
the appropriations commlttoo , and tha com
promise which will probably bo arrived at
wll commend lUol'f to every thoughtful
man ,
Ismu's Involving the South.
There has boon moro talk about the re
moval of the political disabilities for the ox-
confodoratcs ilnco the president sent bis
message to congress on tbo Chilian affair
than ever boforo. Mou who have heretofore
stood out strongly in opposition to the propo
sition , on tbo ground that the oftonc of the
confederates was too grave to bo looked ever
in ono generation , and that thn lesson taught
thorn should bo severe so long ns it was not
irksome in the general exercise of personal
rights , bavo s > ud that they wore almost ready
to take the opposite sldo of the Unuo.
Representative Johnson , a sterling repub
lican from Indiana , who admires u liberal ox-
con federate and Is willing to meet htm half
way on all Issues involving tbe south , is one
of those who put llttlo , faith in the ultimate
position of tha democrats in congress , as a
*
body , when it comes to dispose of the Chilian
question. Ho said today :
"There ere many domocrats'from tno south
who are for war and believe tbo president is
right in what bo says about Chill. Their Im
pulse , their natlvo gallantry , leads them to
stand by the president They would natur
ally prefer to preserve tbo nation's honor.
But mind you , tholr1 political prejudices ,
their loyalty to party , Will drive thorn qulto
all ever tooppose tko > position of the presi
dent. Few of them are there who would not
rather see the country's honor bedraggled In
the dirt and our government compelled to
ppcUot an insult rather than BOO President
Harrison make a good stroke of policy , which
might Inure to his own credit or that of
his party. I honestly believe that
the great majority of Democrats in
congress would prefer to see our
government completely humiliated and suf
fer uumurmurlngly tbo most disgraceful in
dignity rather than permit President Harri
son do anytblng which would popularize the
present administration. They fear ho In
tends to protect our Irish as well , as natlvo
sailors , and thereby secure the favor of tbat
nationality. They are much afraid tnut ho
has taken a stand for Americanism that will
bo tbo batllo cry of the approaching cam
paign. I see already that they nro dodgine ,
and most of ihom nro following the dictates
of tbo English press in commenting upon the
message and denouncing Minister Egan.
bavo no patience with such blind partner
ship. It Isbeneath , patriotism. "
The McKlnleyTarlir In Nclirnslm.
Dr. Peterson of Stratton , near McCook ,
who Is here on some business before the
patent onlco , said today that in his opinion
tbo republicans of Nebraska had made a
great mistake in not pushing to the front the
Mcltlnley tariff bill In their last campaign.
"It is the strongest card , " snld bo , "tho
republican party has made since tbo war. It
bas already glvnn nn Impetus to all Interests ,
and will provo the groalost boon ever giver
the farmer. Tbo increase of manufacturing
Interests , the enlargement of our trade
through reciprocity , which Is from the tariff
law , you know , and the general confidence
It boa infused into domestic institutions will
make continued prosperity , barring crop
failures , wblob are only controlled by the
Spirit abovo. Tun prairie states bavo. been
1 know , In favor of n 'low tariff , ' but thoj
are for our present low , as It gives thorn
moro advantage than anybody elso. The re
publicans have nothing in it to apologize for ,
and they can bo ns acgrcsslve now with it as
they want for It bas no weak spot in it. "

tions for tbo scttlomont of the differences be

by the president to acknowledge the receipt
of Souor PorUra's dispatch of the 25th Inst.
It has boon communicated to congress and
has given great pleasure to the people of this
country and the executive department , ns It
restores the correspondence between the two
'republics to n oasis of cordiality nnd makes ,
ns ho believes , a full and honorable adjust
ment of all unsettled matters easily attaina
ble. The president notes with gratifi
cation the nxprossions of regret for
nnd condemnation of the assault
upon the sailors of the Baltimore
offered by Mr. Perlern , and congratulates the
Chilian government upon the frank nnd
ample withdrawal of the Malta letter and
upon the spirit of Justice displayed toward
Minister Egnn. You will assure the Chilian
government that the president will bo glad
to moot In the most generous spirit these
friendly overtures. Believing that the sub
ject of reparation for the assault upon the
seaman of the Baltimore Is now capable of
adjustment bctwcon the two governments by
tlio usual diplomatic methods , the president
postpones for tbo present any alscusston of
the suggestions made by Scnor Poricra as to
the use of other methods ; not doubting that
the sense of Justice of Chill will enable tbo
two governments to spcodlly and honorably
make full end of thu whole matter. "

Nnw YOUK , Jan. 31. An autopsy has been
hold upon tbo body of General Henry A.
Barnum , who died last Friday. It was con
ducted by Dr. Gcorgo F. Shrady and Dr. B.
U. Carlton. Besides these there were pres
ent Dr. Lewis A. Sayro. Dr. Morgan of
Syracuse and Dr. Joseph D. Bryant , surgeon-
general of the state. The object of the
autopsy was to find out the track of the
bullet that passed clear through the general's
body during tbo fight at Mnlvorn Hill and
had inflicted a wound that remained
open for 80 year * , requiring dressing -
ing every day , and also to discover
why In all those years tbo wound had not
healed up. It was found that the ball which
had Inflicted nn injury , classed in medical
books as ono of the most extraordinary
wounds on record , bad crashed through the
upper rim of too pelvis , breaking tbo Ilium ,
barely skirting the vital part ? and literally
letting clear daylight through tbo body.
Scraps ot dead bono were found that had
prevented the wound from healing , though
If the general bad lived It was Dr. Sayre's
intention to have operated again on the
wound and by scraping the dead bono away
would bavo attempted an absolute cure.
It Is understood that the portionu immedi
ately involved in the wound are to bo prepared
pared and sent on to the Army medico

of 5,000,000 to bo applied to building a rail

tance of 1,000 miles. The line will pass
through Coqulmbo , Taltal , Chlmba , Cobija ,
; oiUln and olbor towns along tbo coast.
The government has had practical experi
ence ot the necessity of this railway , as it
was from Iqulque that it conducted its revolt
against Balmacoda. Having tno navy on Us
sldo , Bnlmacoda was unable to get at It , as it
was imposlbie to march nn army across the
arid desert separating Iqulque from tbo rest
of the country
The loan oskod exceeds the estimates for
the cost of tbo now lino. Tbo surplus will
bo expended in improving tbo navy and re
storing the finances of the country to a sound
basis : The loan will bo floated in the Lon
don , Berlin nnd Amsterdam markets. The

Story of Captain Chirk.
Captain Claris of the 111 fated steam tiif
states : "Wo loft Now York Tuesday inorn-
ug about 1 o'clock for the dumping ground
off Hocltnway , about throe miles from Coney
slnnd. Wo had dumping scows Nos. 5 nn <
17 In tow. There was nn Increasing north-
vest wind. At 4r : > j the same morning wo
reached the grounds and after the two scows
iad dumped thuir load * wo started to re
turn. The wind at this llmo Una attained
, ho velocity of a gale , and the tug was struck
jy blinding snow squalls , causing nor to
keep near and under the east bank. In con-
oquenco she got Into shoal water , and wbll
endeavoring to pot out Into deeper water the
hawser caught In the propeller. Just as day
was breaking the stoaw tug Nlohols , with
two scows In tow , came to bur assistance la
response to our signals , and as all efforts to
got the hawser clear wore unavailing she endeavored
doavorod to tow the disabled steam tug and
scows to Now York , but was unable to do so
on account of the severe gale and high sea.
The Webster wus then anchored and the
steam tug Nichols proceeded to Now York
with her own scows ,
'Tho ' Webster , with her two scows ,
dragged ocoanwnrd. her anchor not being
suOlclont to hold them. Fifty fathoms of
hawser was bent on to the end of her cknlc.
which chocked her groatlr , she then liuvinfl
about 100 fathoms of cable out.
Drifted Seiuvurd ,
"After nn hour the hawser holding tha
scows , which was entangled In the propeller ,
cut or chafed Itself clear , and the jcows
drifted to soa. They each dropped their an
chors , which were .of but little service to
them. They could bo seen by the Webster
all day Tuesday , drifting to the northeast ,
but the next mornlug nothing could bo soon
of thoin.
'Tho Webster' co-jtinuod dragging Into
rougher water and was n complete mass of
ico. Sbo labored so heavy that she sprung &
bad leak , and oy constant pumping and alt
hands balling with buckets \yo could lust
keep her free o'f wator. TUo steamer roiled
so badly that coal was washed into her bilges
vnd her pumps , choking thorn up badly. Tbo
men were obllcod to stand lu the ice cold
water , working for their lives , endeavoring
to keep too pumps clonb and In working
order. In Urn inannor they wore all inoro or
less frozen ,
"At midnight \Vodnosdny the supply of
coal became exhausted and all available
woodwork such as berths , flooring , joiner
worit , etc. , was burned , furnishing hardly
enough steam for the pumps. Ahout 3
o'clock , while In this precarious condition ,
the wind still heavy , and the fuel exhausted ,
the water was up to the gruto bars In the lira
room and the crow nil nearly exhausted front
exposure , excessive labor and hunger , having
oaten scarcely anything for forty hours , a
vessel Hehts were slgntod hoatluu straight
for the Webster.
Heroic Itoscuers.
"Tho welcome vessel , which proved to ba
the schooner Everett Webster , was signalled
by our lights and she immediately bore down
and lowered her stern boat , which was
manned by her first ofllcor , Willmm Leeds ,
and three men. Tnoso inon by skillful man
agement rescued the ton men from the sinkIng -
Ing stoauicr ono by ono thus consuming about
an hour's .time. When the last man was
rescued tbe guards of the tug were level with
the water and aha could not have staid alloat
much longer. "
When they landed aboard tbo schooner U
was ascertained that all of the rosciiod men
had their bands and foot moro or loss frozen.
Captain Clark states that too much * praise
cannot bo accorded to Captain Bowun and
the ofllcors and crow of tbe schooner Everett
Webster for their bravery. The schoonot
herself was-a solid mass of Ice nearly to hot
foreoross traos and was almost unmanage
able. The captain of tba Webster has no
knowleago of the missing scow No. 5 , but
thinks that she would not sink being too
largo and now , with water tight compart
ments running nearly the whole length ol
her. Ho manifests anxiety regarding tha
two men on board , as she was not abundantly
supplied with food and fuel.
