lVASniscTOK, April 7. The conferees
of the two houses of congress appointed to
adjust the differences on the Oklahoma
bill have had a meeting and, although it
lasted more than two hours.no agreement
was reached. There were present on the
part of the senate Messrs-Plattand Jones,
of Arkansas, and on the part of the house
Messrs. Struble. Terkins and Springer.
Tlie whole of the time was consumed in
discussing the salient features of the two
bills. The senators seemed to think that
the house ought to yield on the question
of judicial jurisdiction over tlie Indian
country, but made no objection to having
the new territory include Ko Man's Land,
though there was some disposition to ob
ject to having all the Indian lands west of
the 9Gth meridian Included. However,
there was no great dispute on that point.
The question of Including Greer county.
now claimed by Texas, in tlie bill was
talked over at some length and Senator
Piatt favored dropping this clause out of
the bill, but Senator Jones did not agree
with him. .Senator Cuilom was not pres

the people shall be done free of cost, ex
cept such merely nominal fees as are
necessary to pay expenses. Branches
shall be established at postoflices through
out the country and maintained so long as
they are necessary. Loans shall be made
on security, the interest payable on tho
31st of December every year. Failure to
pay the interest shall terminate the loan
and after the sale of the security the ex
cess over the loan, if any, shall be paid to
the borrower. The money necessary to
transact the business of the department
shall be furnished by the treasurer of the
United States, and it shall be full legal

A conference of the Republican mem
bers of the senate committee on privileges
ami elections was held to-day, as a result
of which Chairman Hoar was requested
to prepare a bill to regulate elections of
members of congress. It Is understood
that tlie measure to be proposed will pro
vide for the appointment of national su
pervisors for every district in which a
certain number shall petition therefor;
that tho supervisors shall watch and
count and make a statement to the board
of canvassers, who shall thereupon issue
certificates of election to candidates re
ceiving the highest number of votes and
those certificates shall be used by the clerk
of the house in making up the roll of

tlie expiration of terms of office and by
increase provided hereby.
By a party vote of 7 too the house com
mittee ou tlie election of president and
vice-president and representatives in con
gress to-day authorized a favorable re
Eort with amendments on tlie McComas
ill to prevent gerrymandering of congres
sional districts. The bill also provides
that representatives to tlie Fifty-second
congress shall be elected from districts
composed of the same territory and hav
ing the same boundaries as those from
which tlie representatives in the Fifty
first congress were elected. The minori
ty of the committee will submit a report
in oposition to the bill.
In tlie senate Mr. Hale gave notice that
he would propose the following amend
ment to that section of the army appro
priation bill to establish the canteen sys
tem in tlie army: 'Providing that no al
coholic liquors, Including beer or wine,
shall be sold or supplied to the enlisted
men in any canteen or in any room or
building at any garrison or military
post.' This amendment was rejected by

J pondents of this board, representing 105
v v&. avu uuuuuca ui liic autic, utriy in
dicate that tlie agricultural condition
.throughout the state at this date is on. the
whole satisfactory. The winter was ex
ceedingly mild and favorable to winter
ing all kinds of stock and, but for tlie cold
weather and high winds of March, the
wheat plant would have passed through
to spring tains and spring suns unim
paired. From this cause the plant gener
ally throughout the state has fullered
more or less, and in some south and
southeastern comities the danger, has been
serious. In many portions of the state
the condition is excellent and in a gener
al way the farmers of Kansas have rea
sons to be encouraged.
Wheat The increase in area sown hi
wheat in the state in the fall of 1SS9 as
compared with that sown the previous
year as estimated by our correspondents
is 24 per cent, which gives a total area for
the state of 1,025,337 acres or an excess
of 374,391 acres over that of the previous
year; 11 per cent is reported winterkilled.
General condition of the crop as com
pared with full stand and unimpaired vi
tality is 90 per cent.
Rye The average of rye is estimated
at 4 per cent, less than last year's, and
the condition, compared with the gener
al average for a term of years, is 9G per
Live stock With the exception of dis
temper, which prevailed in many sec
tions of the state, causing lo$3 in places,
there is no prevailing disease, and horses
arc in good condition.
Cattle Our correspondents report cat
tle healthy and in good condition gener
ally. There has, however, been an unu
sual loss ot cattle reeding In corn stalks
during tlie winter, and there has been
much speculation as to the cause. The
most careful of farmers who took every
known precaution to Insure safety met
witli losses and, the opinion prevailed that
the stock wa3 diseased.
Hogs Hog cholera is reported as hav
ing prevailed during the winter in many
counties of the state, though generally in
a ,mild form. In some counties, how
ever, the loss was heavy. At this date
the disease seems for the most part to
Tamo Grasses The condition of tame
grasses generally reported good; in
many counties excellent, though some
correspondents report clover damaged by
tlie freeze in March.
Fruit Peach buds arc reported killed
with the exception of those in some locali
ties in southern Kansas. All other fruit
buds are apparently in good condition.
The season farm work lias been retard
ed greatly throughout the state by- the
cold weather in March. Farmers, how.
ever, succeeded for tlie most- part
in getting their spring wheat and oats
into the ground before the 1st of April.
The ground is in excellent condition for
plowing and there is an abundance of
moisture to germinate seed. With the
abundance of moisture stored away in tho
sub-soil of Kansas by the extraordinary
rains of last season, but light rain falls
will be necessary to meet the requirments
of plant life until late in the season.
Taken altogether the agaicultnral condi
tions in Kansas Is with but few exceptions
Views of Iowa Congressmen.
WasniNGTON, April 7, A morning pa
per contains a series of interviews with
the senators and representatives from
Iowa regarding the prohibition muddle iii
that state. Senators Allison and Wilson
thought the statute would not be repealed.
Representatives Dol liver, Swcney, Lacey,
Flick, Kerr, Struble and Conger all ex
pressed the opinion that tlie law would
not even be modified. Mr. Reed agreed
with his colleagues, but said: "The senti
ment was, doubtless, more favorable to
prohibition a few years ago than it is
now." Congressman Hayes, the only
Democrat from Iowa and an avowed anti
prohibitionist, was interviewed. He said:
"As the Republicans control the senate
and can block tlie house, I think notli
ing will be done. I don't think the law.
will bo repealed. But it is possiblo that
some of the Republicans may, through
public sentiment, join the Democrats in a
stringent license law."
The MetUnan Case.
Leavenworth", April 7. Marshal Doanc
has made formal complaint against John
Mettman, charging him with the willful,
malicious and deliberate murder of his
wife, Theresa Mettman, on the night of
her disappearance. Mettman's examina
tion will be held at 2 o'clock this after
noon. Chief Doane says that immediately up
on disposing of the case against Mettman
he will arrest Mrs. Mary Rautzahn, the
daughter of the suspect, and place her in
the city jail, where she will be helJ on
suspicion of being an accomplice of her
father. The officer thinks that the terrible
mental strain under which she has been'
laboring, together with her arrest and
separation from her two small children,
will completely unnerve her and cause her
to give a full account of all knowledge
which may be in her possession, as to the
murder of her mother.
A Killing at Kingfisher. t

ry. This is the first murder that has oc
curred at the town.

J. D. Tay!or,from the committee on alco
holic traffic, yesterday reported to the'
house the bill agreed upon by that com
mittee, providing for the appointment of
iui aiconouc liquor tratuc commission. t
The report of the .committee says that a '

impartial and thorough investigation or
the liquor tratllc In all its phases. Refer
ence is made to inquiries by similar com
missions iu England . which have had re

eased brain. Therefore, says the report,
let us have an Investigation and let'the
world know tho truth or falsity of these
Representative t Quinn, of New!, York,
presented a minority report In opposition
to the bill. He says that under tho terms'
of the bill, while the commissioners' shall1
not, belong to tho same political party,'
they may all be prohibitionists. Thema
jority concedes that congress has no pow
er to regulate the liquor traffic luthd'
states, and it is therefore a novel propo
sition that it shall Investigate a subject
without possessing the power to carry
out, oy legislation inei recommenuaiions,
made by the commission. , ( '
' He maintains that there is no informa
tion on the subject that has not already'. 1
, been published, no argument relating
thereto that has not already been made.
It has been agitated and discussed for
forty years by the people, and It is an in
sult to their ability and intelligence, to
say that they are not Informed upon this
subject and that this commission can in
two years give them what they do not al
ready know. In conclusion, Mr. Quinn
said that undoubtedly the bill is one of
those numerous measures originating out
side of congress under, the pretense of
some great public benefit, the real pur
pose i ot which is personal advancement
and selfish interest. The" bill Is Intended
to infringe upon the rights of. tho people
and is un-American in its character.

InKhriftis'aSTJetitlonedforbv the railroad
,'companics.;l,.e "prominent shippers of
the state niauo a stroug protest, claiming
that the unit of a car load rate used to de
termine,the'rate;p!r 100 'pounds tended to
greatly increase the cost of transportation
to die shippers-- that the process of weigh
ing worked a delay which was a serious
loss and cost' to tho shipper; that tho
weighing being done by the transporta
tion companies was a one-sided determin
ation justifying suspicion always and re
sulting In serious .errors often.
The board, says that if,nom!nal weights
can be determined by the actual weight of
the, stock in its direct passage from the
cartb'th'e'yardc, iJn unloading by disin
terested vvelghmasters, responsible alike
to the transportation companies and the

shown to be entirely practical, or by the

Chicago jatdo, there can be no valid ob
jection except one of policy, and that elc
ment'of all'trarisdctioiis among men, uni
