Intention to have them removed.
They are Riving the Lake Shore men

ing a settlement of the strike in favor
oi the Bwitubm'.in. In tbat event their
task will be all the taiier. They say
that if the Lake) Shore Company con
tinues to support the non-unionists
nd the latter refuse to resign, it is al
most certain that within the next two
days the switchmen on the Kock Inl
and roid will strike. This morning at
daylight (Superintendent Ameden and
General Freight Agent illoduettof the
Lake Shore road wra prjmHcading
.the tracks in the vicinity of Polk
street When asked about the pros
pects of resuming business tilay Mr.
Amsden said: "I do not think that
we will try to-do anything to-day.
There ia no use in trying to get a traiu
pa Kofly-flrtt street."
In the yards this morning there was
no change in the Mate of B flairs. The
north branch of the stock-yards "Y"
ia still obstructed with the train
witched there yeetatday, and the
stock jari'a dummy consumes from
five to ten minutes more than usual
in making trip, m it has to run to
Root street and back out to the yards.
The Unt attempt of the company to
.enlist now, men ended las', night in
failure."
At 8:30 o'clock englue No. 5.12, in
charge of Engineer Weaver and Fire
man Merkle moved out of the round
house into the yards. General-Superintendent
Wright and Yardmaeter
Jonee and General Freight Agent
Blodgett were on the engine. As the
engine moved InUi the yards one of
the strikers approached the engineer,
who only shook his head in reply to
questions pat to him. The engine
then proceeded south toward , where
the train which was attempted to be
moved yesterday was standing, t
Forty-fourth street. The cars which
were standing there wore surrounded
by orowd of Btritera, who remove 1
the draw bar keys, completely dis
abling the cai. The engine stopped
north of Foity-third street and was
backed on another trsin of cars stand
ing on side track. While the attempt
was being made to reach the side
track coupling pins and o:her obstruc
tions were put in front of the wheels.
These were removed by the police,
but jusf. as the engine was crowing
the switch some onetriedto throw the
swiich betweentheengine and tender.
The man was driven away and the en
gine was attached ti the trsin. About
this time the crowd at Forty-fourth
street havinn. succeeded in disabling
the cara up there attempted to run the
caboose which was Kit ached to the
train, in which the conductor and two
brakeraen were, on to a side track.
lh conductor and brakemen rushed
on to tLe platform and warned the
crowd away. One ol the men picked
np a coupling and was about to throw
it at the brakemen when the con
ductor .drew a revolver. The crowd
rushed at the brakeman and hustled
him away, and some ons bit him cm
the head, knocking him senelers.
i At this time the crowd left the ca
boose end went; up to Forty-filth
street, where two cars standing on the
sidetrack were moved down and de
railed in froLtoI the engine at Forty
third street. Gennral Superintendent
Wright gave up the aMempt to move
the train. The crowd gave a cheer,
lifted tha car ou the track, and moved
it back to its former onition, repaired
several awitcbes which had been
broken and then moved back intotho
round-house.

When the door j reopened the Senate

when the Utah bid was to be reported

Mr. Tucker replied that tbe bill was
being considered by tbe committee.
When a di termination l ai been ar

versely or favorably.
Mr. Kiel suggested that the till lull

was a measure in which the country
was much interested. Could the gen

Mr. Tucker (dryly) No other an

Hou-e calendar.
The report accomnariyinir the bill
states that nearly 2,000,000 men and
women have petitioned tbe Legisla
tures of the dillerent States forsimilar
laws, and up to the present year the
wishes of tbe people hive been com
p'ijd with in fourteen States. As an
evidence that the people earnestly de
Bire a law like the one suggested, the
committee point to the fact tbnt peti
tions bearing tbe names of 71,270 per
sona have been preceded to this Con
gress asking for its enactment. The
effect of similar lawa in the different
States where they are n fi roe ba-, in
tbe opinion cf the committee, proveu
most satisfactory. Such laws leed to
p.ogrj8 and reive to check a threat
ening evil to humanity and the gen
eral welfare. The report argues tbe
bill invades no right of self-government.
The measure had the v. till
merit of involving no political signifi
cance, but appealed to the veiy foun
dations npou which popular eolf gov
ernment noted the intelligence of
the people. It was difficult to see
bow many objections could be raised
to such a s'atule except by those who
feared to have the next generation ed
ucated upon a subject universally
recognized to be of the most vital im
portance to individual health and
social security.

The report says tbat the soldiers and
sailors of the country have fir years
demanded this change in the law, and
the committee tbiuks that the demand
is just and reasonable. A minority
report Is submitted by Mr. U emeus
and Mr. Blauebard La., in which the
argument is made that the amend
ments to the law rvould be a vio'a'ion
of the alleged fundamental principle,
ot the civil service law that appoint
ments should be made alone upon
merit, ascertained by competent ex
amination. Mr. Skinner N. C., from the Com
mittee on Indian Affaire, repeated
back tbe Senate bill to extend the laws
of the United Ptntes over the Indian
Territory. House calendar.
In the morning hour the House re
sumed the consideration of tbe joint
resolution for the appointment of a
commission to inquire into an! repot t
npon the condition of the Indians.
After an unsuccessful attempt by Mr.
Holman Ind to secure imme'diat-i
action on the measures its further con
sideration was postponed until May
18'h.
The remainder of the morning hour
waB consumed in an ineffectual effort
on the part of Mr. F"orney Ala. toss
cure consideration of the bill tor the
relief of the Alabama flood sufferers,
and then the House went into commit

Mias Louisia Mann, af'er being toUlly
b ind lor twenty-two yearn, bas pud
denly regained her sight. The town
is not given to senea it ns. It grows
attenua'ed along the line cf the rail
road to the sonth until it becomes a
double row of frame houses on each
side of the ia Iroed track. One of
these is tbe abode nf tbe Manne, a
family which left Viiginia not many
years ago. Their faA-s show tbe dark
bne and the fervid religions tempera
ment of the South the very daik hue
of tbe extreme south of Africa.
Some of tbe palings are gone from Ihe
fence about their docryard. The out
look is npon the romantic ex panas of
the gravel embankment for the rail
road. Tbe numerous children have
wc ra the paint off the veranda and tbe
grass off the soil. In the living-room
are a co k stove aad a sewing ma
chine. It ia to this ioom that the vis
itor, who wished to see the subject of
a "miraculous cure," was shown yes
teidcy.
Miss Louisa wai summoned from an
upper room and came down s'owly and
hesitatingly. Hur eyes blinked and
rolled, and ebe rolled her Leal on one
side in trying to uce them. I hey
eeemed to become weary with lime
nse. vrnen only sev.n years old,
Louisa frill downstairs aud in two duvs
"weiit blind," as her old rr.o'her ex
plained. She was in bed for three
months and after getting aoout a?ain
wassahjeut to occasional "verv bsd
spells," or epileptic 11 s. Her general
ueaitn continued to grow worse and
one phvsiciau, who examined ber
eyes in Virginia, sdd that ebe was ton
young to have them operated upon
and nothing further has ever been
done fo' them Seven vears aaa she
joined the Methodist Church and
since coming to Plainfield has at
tended the Baptist Chnrch. A vear
ago Mies Dunbar of Boston, who was
member of a Faith-Cure Congrega
tion, went to Plainfield and became
interested in the sufferer snd instruc
ted her in Ihe tenets of her own faitb,
to which she believed her own re
covery from an illlness to be due.
"She used to come and sit with me."
said Louisa, "and reed to me from the
Bible, and told me to truet in tbe
Lord and He'd make me well strain."
Louiea trusted for feveral months.
One night last Jane sie had four
"Bpclls" in oae day, aud has not had
any s'nee. Her general health has
been much improved since then. Mies
Dunbar told her to bo on trusting and
she would get back her eyeeivht. Her
cure ia thin described in ber o.vu
wirds:
'Last Tue;div niirlit about 10 o'clo k
I was lying on the bed with my
mo I tier beside me praying as Imrd ua
I could, when I began to sse a light.
The room seemed fill d with it. I
could nee my mother, but I wouldn't
have kuowu h- r if I hadn't heard her
voice. I couldn't tay hnything for an
hour ix.'ept just to lliiuk, 'Blejoo the
L-ird! I'm cired '" On goirg about
next nay things were viiibielo her,
but in a strange, forgotten way. "It
appeared ai if there wasn't any top to
some ol toe trees in the yard," she
tiled.
It seeiua that at timed dating the
laet fw mo hs she has been able to
distinguish light from darkness, and
evidently her B'glit is not in au en
tirely EO.-mii condition yet. She lies
bad no medical examination of her
eyes, eo no scientific opinion of the
cure could be bad.
iuvituer Mialrrloua ' Victim of
- Judge Lynch la Texas.
Navasota, Tax , April 20. Another
mysterious victim of Judge Lvnrh was
found nboire 'his city yettarday, near
tbe village nf Washington, on Bratos
river. A farmer named Wilson found
the body of a light ro ored mulatto
floating near the shore. He tied the
corpso to a tree snd notified the near
est justice of the peace, who held an
inquest on the body. The examina
tion, revealed adak blue murk around
the neck, which was broken. The
ankles of the mulatto alto bora marks
of tbe rope, indicating tbat weighis
bad been tied to his feel. Hia t-iiall
wai broken, as though from tbe b'ow
of a revolver handle, probably to st'fli
his cries. Who the deed mar, ie, or
what te-rible crime he committed
which brought ench fa al vei-eeanre,
in a profound mystery here. The
theory is that he wns swung from
some bridge acr )ss the Bvzoi many
miles above aud the rope afterward
cut in expectation thai the weights on
his ankles would cirry the boJy to the
bottom. '
