rent, light and fuel in third class post

postage on seeds is fixed so, as to make the
posting 1 cent for two ounces. On the
amendment known as the subsidy clause
the conference committee has been unable
to agree. After an explanation by Mr.
Plumb the report was agreed to, and Mr.
Plnmb moved that the senate insist upon
the subsidy amendment, and asked for a
further conference. After a long debate

tariff and the shortcomings of both the

Mr. Henderson, would think of this kind
of treatment of his distinguished candi
date. He would like to hear whether Mr.
Henderson endorsed what the gentleman
from New Jersey bad given as the reason
for the rejection of the distinguished sen
ator. Mr. Henderson said he thought he knew
the reason for the defeat not only of Sena
tor Allison, but of that equally dis
tinguished and noble gentleman and sol
dier. Judge Gresham, and while he was
net here to entertain his colleagues with
the incidents of the Republican convention
he was here to say that he did not believe
(and to him was absolute knowledge) that
the attitude of Iowa in respect to railroad
legislation had lost Senator Allison a single
vote in the convention. Iowa, as in the
past, would this fail in spite of rantings
and misrepresentations, plant itself in the

would show its people, including its honest
grangers, believes in the principle which
recognized America and American work
men and did not toady to the dictates of
English interests -and English reDresenta
tives, whether here or in tne white house.
Mr. Henderson having used the word
"'demagogue" during the course of his re
marks, Mr. "Weaver saida man was a dema
gogue in this country if he was consistent
in his opposition, to monopoly. In order to
avoid being a demagogue a man must go
to a convention to further the interests of
a granger candidate, and when the candi
date was slauchtered in cold blood by
monopolies he must join in loud acclaim
over his own defeat. The house had the
open confession of the gentleman from
ew Jersey that his interview was truth
ful and had in this interview the gentle
man's ideas of western men. Xow
ne wanted to show what a
western man thought of eastern men.
He sent to the clerk's desk and had read
amidst much laughter and applause on the
Democratic side, the letter written by Sen
ator Ingalls to a member of the Kansas
delegation during the Chicago convention.
Mr. Henderson said he would also give
the house a little literature. He then sent
to the clerk's desk and had read numerous
extracts from speeches delivered by Mr.
Weaver from ISto to 1ST2, in which he bit
terly assailed with forcible language the
Democratic party as a party full of steuch
and poison, which should be blotted from
the vocabulary of a civilized land and
handed over to the barbarism which it so
Mr. Weaver said that the speeches which
had been read had been uttered by him in
times past, when the situation was
entirely different from what it
was now. Laughter on Republican side.
He had nothing to take back in regard to
his course on the issues then pr-ented.
He had followed the standard of the Re
publican party until he was forced to
abandon it by reason of its vicious finan
cial policy. He had then turned to the
despised Democratic party and had found
that it was opposed to the demonetization
of silver and that a Democratic houi had
remonetized it. He had found the Demo
cratic party m favor of punishing the "star
route" thieves and returning to old Jeffer-
sonian and Jocksonian pathways, and his

of the Union Labor party and it was his

business done here. It was "'time to end

PrrrSBCT.G, July 11. The freshet in the
Monongahela river is almost unprecedent
ed, and great damage has been done to the
river craft and property all along the river
to the head waters. The suddenness of
the rise took the river men entirely un
awares, and they were not prepared when
the great volume of water burst on them.
Millions of feet of lumber, scores of coal
craf ts, fences, outhouses and coal tipples
have been floating down the swift current
for the past eighteen hours. The river at
this point is still rising with twenty-one
feet and nine inches on the mark at 9
o'clock, but it is reported as stationary
with twenty-five feet at Greensboro, 100
miles above this city. At every point be
tween Greensboro and Pittsburg, the low
lands are under water, and the residents
has been compelled to live in the upper
stories of their houses, and in some cases
to seek the hills for safety. Many had not
time to remove their goods as the water
rose at the rate of a foot an hour, as the
amount of the rise was recorded in leas
than twenty-tour hours. The damage of
property cannot be estimated at present.but
it will reach away up into the thousands.
A solitary barge which broke away yester
day caused over $-5,000 damage, and this is
but one little item. So far but one life has
been reported lost, that of a man named
George Getter, who was struct by a parted
cable and instantly killed.
The greatest damage to river craft oc
curred between 1:30 o'clock this morning
and daylight. Shortly beforb 2 o'clock a
large number of barges belonging to Jen
kins & Co. came down the river from the
second pool and struck the Smithfield
street bridge, and the huge barges, turn
ing end over end, breasted the tow boat
Barnard in against the steamer Jacobs.
Every whistle on the river sounded the
alarm, and as the livid rays of the electric
light sweDt from side tosideacros tho
turbulent flood, it presented a wild sicht.
Logs, barges and fuel butts were dashed
against the piers of the bridge and snapped
lice twigs by the overwhelming force of
the current. Half of one of Jenkins boaU
lodged against the bottom just below the
Smithfield street bridge and the water
washed over it, throwing the spray
high into the air, while the
di jftwood crumbed and crackled
over the wreck with the grinding noise
which adds to the horrors of the flood.
Later the steamer George Wood broke
her moorings above the Tenth street bridge
and came drifting down the river, but was
finally caught and towed to safe harbor.
i he ropes that held the sunken Cincin
nati wharf boat, which tho owner had
been struggling for two hours to nav,
parted about this time and the cumber

A few minutes later a lot of O'Neil's !

moorings and carried down stream.

is impossible to hear from many points np

wires are down and there is a complete
cessation of communication by teir graph

have bean caused br a cloud bursting
