HVF MINUTE TALKS
WASHINGTON Apnl 26 Immediately upon
assembling the House went into committee of
the whole on the legislative appr priation bill,
under the five minutes rule, discussions under
that rule to close at 2 o'clock Mr. Evung first
got the floor and continued his speech of last
evening Hededared the men who were in
suiting the President were not the men on the
Democratic side, but the stalwarts of the Re
publican paitj, who now had the lash over the
President threattning him with party expos
ores if he dared be governed by his own opin
ions The President had no right to indicate,
WAS AN IMPERTINENCE
to him to ay he had indicated his opinion and
his preference in regard to the mode of doing
business in the House It was none of his busi
ness. The gentleman fiom Ohio (Garfield) had
said that the mode of procedure was insulting,
that it had been done bj a caucus which had
said, We wi'l star\e the government to death
if the President does not yield.' The Demo
cratic caucus had done nothing at all except to
determn to put the repeal through as a sep
arate bill on the appropriation bill. It did
not go one step further than that Prior to
that caucus the Republican caucus had assem
bled, and had given notice that if this repeal
was to be pastd at all it would have to be
placed upon the appiopnation bills. The con
currence of the ctiou of the Republican side
was to hold a club over the President and to
oontinue the policy of the past two years, of
proscription and denunciation, because he had

those confederate brigadiers men of education
and purity of perso al and public life, with
hands unsmirched by public plunder, knew
they wre their peers in intelligence, ability
and in devotion to the common country and its
laws (Applause on the Democratic side)
Gentlemen on the other side did injustice to
their own hcaits if they said anything dif
ferent They knew that there was not a latent
purpose of dislovolty in the hearts of those
confederate soldiers or in the masses they
reprenented and it the honor of this country

ITS strrroRT WITH AN ARDOR AS STRONG
an ever burned in any breast The conntry,
North and South, wanted peace The Repub
lican party knew moreover, that if it met the
real issue presented in a square fight it would
go under The Democrats asked this repeal
aolely to bring the government back to its true
system, to the theory of local self government.
The peopic knew th^ae laws were in violation
of the constitutn 1 in violation of the tradi
tions of the countrj and were dangerous to the
purity of elections and *he liDeity of the peo
pie Therefore their repeal was demanded.
(Applaust on the Democratic side
declared it had been in the power of the hum
blest or greatest of the Democrats to have
ruined him and proved him a traducer and
slanderer by simply rising and saying in con
tradiction of his assertion to its being the pur
pose of the Demo r.tic party to starve the
government. We do not propose to refuse
vote supplies to the government We wish to
get our legislation through in reference to the
election and ever} thing else if we can consti
tutionally but if we can't get it through un
der all constitutional sanctions, we will pass
the apptopri ition bilk like loyal representa
tives and go home' But though forty-five
Democrats had spoken that sentence had not
been utti by a siLg'e Democrat
On the contrary the Democrats by their si oe
as well as by their affirmation had
made his accusation overwhelmingly
true. The Democrats had gone before the
oountry in pleas like this which stood as the
heading of the speech of the gentleman from
Virgn 11 (Tucker) Elections by the people
must be fite fn the power and presence of a
standing army They hid gone before the
oountry on the plea that they wanted to get the
bayonets awiv from the hreists of voters and
that the Republicans wanted to keep soldiers at
the polls Herecilled that every Republican
had voted for Conner's motion on the army bill
to rtpeal the law 1865 which the Demo
crats complained of as putting the bayonet at
the breast the voter ind that every Demo
crat voted no on that moti n The vote on
that motion hid put bejond *11 cavil the Re

HIGH AND UNASSAILABLE GROUNDS.
The Republicans had voted to repeal the
whole of thit law and th Democrats voted
against it The Democrats should therefoie
never aain ^o to the pe pl and siy they had
tried to repeal the odious law, and that the
Repubheat would not let them He reminded
the i ther side ot the law of Congress which
dictates to State legislatures what they shall

election the second dav the two houses shall
meet in j int convention how the distinction
between State Senators and representatives is
abolished etc and yet no Democrat had made
any raid against th it law no State legislature
had made any oppositi to it and every one
of the sevent\ six Seua ors had his seat in pur
suance of that law He asked in the name of
all that is reasonible why if Congress could
do this in regard to Stale legislatures, it could

follows "Washington, April 25, 1879 Hon.
John A. LoganSir On the 21st instant
you published in the Republican, of
this city, a communication containing
words personally reflecting on me.
I have twice addressed vou a note calling your
attention to this language. You have failed

thereby force me to the last alternative. I
therefore demand ou to name some time and

Col. Lowe then concludes his card a3 follows
Thus ended this one-sided correspondence. It
needs little or no comment from me. I will
not brand John A. Logan as a liar, for he is a
Senator of the United States. I will not post him
as a scoundrel and poltroon.for that would be in

LOWELL, Neb. April 26 Richards,the Nebras

was hung at Minden, Kearney county, at II 07
A to day. He mounted the scaffold with a
steady step and stood facing the crowd of two
th usand five hundred people. An enclosure
bad been erected on the public square, made of
pine boards 16 feet square, in which the execu

making private execution necessary.
At noon to-day the mob took
this shed down and the execution was public.
After mounting the scaffold he spoke to the
crowd for five minutes saying he was not guilty
of the crime under which he was convicted
He spoke with amazing firmness, and aston

were sung The man was then tied
with rope and straps, continuing talking all
the time. When the noose was adjusted and
the black cap drawn down he still talked until
the sheriff knocked the lever. He fell six feet.
His neck was dislocated, and only a nervous
twitching of the legs showed the least sensi

was well behaved.

A GAME GIRL
CINCINNATI, April 26 A tramp entered the
residence of G. Kitchen, a farmer near
Lebanon, Ohio yesterday morning, during the
absence of the family, and began searching a
bureau where a large amount of money had
been placed. Carrie Roberts a young girl, the
domestic who was the upper part of the
house, heard the noise and discovered the tramp
at work She approached him unobserved,
suddenly clutched him by the hair with one
hand and endeavored to wrench a box of valu
ables from his grasp with the other hand.
Finding her efforts unavailing she released her
hold, sprang upon a chair, secur a revolver
from the top of the clock and fired at the
tramp several times in quick succession. The
latter dropped the box, ran into the yard,
scaled the fences and escaped. Upon examina
tion it was found that nothing of value had
I been taken.
STERLING VS. SMITH.
ST. LOUIS, April 26 The allegation made
yesterday that Mrs. Sterling nad maintained
relations of improper intimacy with the man
Smith, who attempted to 11 her, now seems
to be based only on the statement of Smith,
who evidently is a verv bad man, if not a des
perado The reputable evidence all goes to
show Mrs. Sterling was a very exemplary wo
man, but was under Smith control through
fear of pergonal violence until by the aid of
friends, she was ah'eto break his influence, and
get rid of him He still pursued her, however,
and yesterday actually forced her to accompany
him to his boarding house She charges him
with appropriating her money to bis own use
and in corrob ratio of this he was indicted
yesterday, at Belleville Illinois, for burglariz
ing her house at Summerfietd.

AT LAST IT'S DONE.
THEIB CITY TICKET.
A Squad of StalwartsThey Imitate the
Tailors ot Tooley StreetThree Hours Se
cret Session, During Which Several Re
publicans Get DiscussedThe Ticket
Made, and a Hasty Adjournment Before
It Can Decline.
The Republicans met together yesterday
pursuant to the adjournment from last
Tuesday. The stalwarts were pleased to
call it a convention, and like the famous
three tailors of Tooley street got together,
and after due squabbling, issued the result of
their proceedings as given below, in the name
of the people. Before they got together
however, there was no inconsiderable con
fidential confab. They had passed the time
since the adjournment on Tuesday in trying
to get somebody to stick if his name were
stack np on the* ticket. These confidential
confabs were then to learn if "he" would stick,
and when told he wonld, there were many
disclaimers. In this condition of mind and
uncertain state, Messrs. H. A. Castle and H.
M. Smyth buzzed themselves into a visiting
committee to await on the necessary numher
of "hims" to stick, and locking arms went off.
Returning shortly, the Tooley street affair
went np stairs, foand the court room locked,
sent out for a key, got it, got the door open
and got to business.
GETTING O WORK.
The convention was called to order by the
chairman, Capt. Russell Blakeley, who stated
that the work of the convention had to be
done, and he advised progress.
Mr. Castle moved that the chair appoint a
committee of one from each ward to consti
tute the central city committee. He ex
plained that he made the motion thus early
so that the president could select and an
nounce the committee before the adjourn
ment of the convention.
The motion was put and carried.
LET IOUB LIGHT SO SHTNB, BTO.
A long pause followed, which was broken
by the President asking:
"Gentlemen, what is your next pleasure?"
There didn't seem to be any pleasure about
the affair, but ex Aid. H. M. Smythe got np,
and remarked that he considered it advisable
to go into secret session, or caucus, as he
termed it. Then, after another pause, dur
ing whioh the gentleman stood in an unde
cided kind of a way, he muttered:
"I move that this convention do now go
into secret caucus."
Mr. Castle, with great promptness, ejacu
lated, as if he were afraid somebody would
cheat him out of the honor of abetting this
underhand business, "I second the motion."
The motion was put and carried, the con
vention voting "aye" in a subdued tone of
voice, as if they were desirous even of hid
ing this from the people.
The president, Capt. Blakely, then re
quested all who were not members
of the convention to retire. About six
complied with the request, among whom
were the GLOBE and Volkszeitung represen
tatives, while the old debauchee attached to
Bill King's paper lingered along, until it was
intimated that the convention could not be
sold out for $500 by him, and there was no
use of his waiting The lean pantaloon then
pattered out into the lobby, looking much
chagrined at the loss of his customary little
Mr. Castle proposed in totto voce to let
Dirty Work Dick remain as a delegate. Was
there the understanding of a divvy? But
others opposed it, and Dick got bounced as
AFRAID O THE PEOPLE.
The convention went into secretugly
wordsession at 10 30 o'clock A. M., and got
out of their hiding at 1 45 o'clock P. M.
What did the stalwarts do or
concoct while sitting with closed
doors barred against the people whose suf
frage they ask?
The first matter brought np was whether
a ticket should be put in the field.
There were several who thought Dawson
and Roche good enough, but entertained
objections to Murray because he was such a

crats, anyhow, and he didn't want any of

of endorsing Dawson for mayor.

Somebody suggested Cush Davis.
Mr. Castle, who is some kind of a d-dark
quadruped for gubernatorial honors, opposed
Davis as aa improper person. He wasn't
suthcient of the God and morality class to
suit the partv.
"He was elected Gover by the party,"
said a voiceheard through the keyhole
and the quadruped with gubernatorial aspi

A voice piped out that he would not ac

After a time Bill Murray's name was
mentioned with great frequency, and the
coterie inside seemed to get very excited
about this one man outside.
Wil lams' name was mentioned for city

"Humph," interrupted the convention, so

Matters assumed a quiet and business
was rattled along until they got down to the
candidate for alderman in the Fourth Ward.
Mr. Hughson proposed Charlie Baldwin's
Several declared that Pascal Smith waf

POURING OI ON THE WATERS.
At this, Mr. Thomas Cochrane, with Chris
tian forbearance beaming out like Edison's
concentrated electro-magnetic light from his
countenance, offered the following resolution

and collectively, to nse their utmost endeavor

by any more ebullitions of discontent.

was exposed to public view as the Tooley

No sooner had the sunlight been shed
upon the secret crowd through the open
doorway, than Mr. Thomas Cochrane, Jr.,
moved to adjourn.
And adjourn they did.
And this is the way the Republicans car
ried on and consumated the work of the
convention. There's the same contrast be
tween the Democratic way and the Republi
can mode as there is between day and night.
MARRIED IX JOKE.
But Getting: a Divorce in Sober Earnest.
A romantic incident, originating from &
practical joke, and culminating in a regretful
and entirely unpremeditated marriage, came
to light yesterday. The affair happened last
autumn near the picturesque city of Chilli
cothe, Mo., and was the direct outcome of an
excursion party, participated 'in by half a
score of young, and as subsequent develop
ments proved, very imprudent persons.
The party had passed the day in pieman?,
and were returning to Chillicothe at nightfall,
when the cavalcade had occasion to pass the
residence of a rural squire or justice of the
peace. Just before reaching the squire's resi
dence one of the party suggested that it would
be a good joke to conclude the pleasures of the
day with a wedding. The proposition was in
dorsed by the entire party, who,growing em
boldened by its unanimous concurrence, pro
ceeded to alight at the squire's residence.
Whether it was the unexpected appearance of
such a jolly crowd of visitors, or whether
visions of a prospective fee made the bucolic
justice so good humored towards the young
people, it is not known, but certain it is that
they were welcomed in aright royal manner.
The next consideration was to procure
a couple who were willing, for the
fun of the thing, to undergo the cer
emony of being joined in wedlock.
Among others in the party was a young man
named Edward Barker, who was particularly
attentive in his addresses to a leading belle of
the vicinitv, who- parents were well-to-do
people residing in Chillicothe. One of the
party prepared a wedding between these two,
which rebulted in what everybody supposed at
the time was a mock ceremony, after which
the party returned home in high glee over their
The surprise of all concerned may be im
agined when an official notice of the marriage
was filed a few days subsequently with the
county clerk of the district, and developments
have since shown that the marriage was solem
nized in lawful form and in dead earnest.
The victims to the joke and their own folly
were surprised and indignant at the revelation,
and the young man is at present in this city
seeking a divorce, which, in all probability,
will soon be granted.
