excitement this morning, by
the suicide of Thomaa E. Anderson,

tbe oldest cahlra In the oil reglona. He
opened tbe bank aa usual at nine oclock,
and transacted business with aeveral cus
tomers. H waa afterward no
ticed running in and out of
the bank tn a burned manner, and
then hurrying up Thirteenth street to
wards bis residence. Smoke was tben
seen Issuing from tbe bank, and persons
who had noticed bis manoovers, entered
tho bank, supposing it to be on fire, when
they discovered tbe grato heaped up with
bank notes, bonda and bank papers rapidly
being consumed by tbe fire. The fire KM
extinguished as quickly, a possible, and
the notes, bond etc., were drawn out.
Some were In a charred condition, while
other burned to ashes.

The amount absolutely destroyed

States treasurer has been telegraphed to
send some one at once to examine the

this act cannot positively bo ascertained.
It is generally understood, bowover, that
bis irregularities in conducting the busi
ness waa tbe cause.
It is known that he was carrying
large over drafts for tbe aocommodatlon
of personal frienis, unauthorized by
banks.
Tbo bank was soon to change bands,
and he was required to bave tbe accounts
of tbo bank in complete order at a certain
date, which would expose the irregulari
ties. Tbo bank loses heavily, but tbe
losses will not affect its standing.

SENATE.
Washington, .March 14. Tbe vico
president presented a memorial asking
that the papers in tbo case of tbe Kansas
senatorial election be taken from the files.
Referred to the committee on elections.
Senator Chandler offured a resolution au
thorizing the committee on commerce to
ait during recess, in investigating the sub
ject of subsidies to steamship lines, acd
what Jloes tbould be subsidised. Also
into tbe propriety of granting bounties to
ship-builders. The resolution lies over.
Senator Anthony submitted a resolution
which lies over, reciting tbe resolution re
ported at the late session for tbe expulsion
of J. W. Patterson, and the inability of
the senate to consider the same for want
of time; also saying It Is questionable
whether said resolution could be now con-
jiaereo, inasmucn aa raauraoa la ao
longer member, aad thetefore declaring
tbat a failure of the aenate upon said reso
lution W not to be interpreted ae an ap
proval or disapproval of the same, and
tbat Patterson bave leave to make a writ
ten statement for publication on the con
gressional records.
Senator Howe argued against having
petitions received.
Senator Sherman opposed petitions
seeking legislation, but bad no objections
to receiving them.
Senator Anthony thought they might
take the most liberal construction, and
receive petitions, though not act upon
them.
Senator Howe elted precedents to show
that petition bad heretofore been re
ceived and referred.
After further debate the senate de
cided not to receive the petitions wbicb
Howe desired at present, 24 to 82.
Tbe senate tben resumed tbo Caldwell
cue.
Senator Scott after briefly reviewing
tbe report of the committee, said be oould
not bring his mind to tbe conclusion tbat
its finding is cause for setting aside tbe
election of Caldwell. If tbo people
themselves do not exerelse their power'
from the primary meeting to the election
thjy are tbo sufferers, but have tbe reme
dy in their own hands. He was painfully
brought to tbe conclusion that Caldwell's
business capacity should bave kept blm
out of tbe hands of men whom be should
have avoided like lepers. Like the taan
who went to Jerrlcho, be foil among
thieves. He wished he could say, tbat
Caldwell turned bis back upon tbem.
While not seoking to influence the judg
ment of his fellow senators, ho should
not yield to clamor which demanded tbe
sacrifice of a victim, any more tban ho
would shield a fiend from a wrong com
mitted.
Senator Morrill of Vermont, argued
tbat tbe sonate was guardian of the rights
of stato. The question was whether the
senato would suffer this record to stand as
a precedent, to be followed for all time to
come, or shall it be stamped as a corrupt
bargain. Tbe money pa'd was a round
sum, to capture by tbe wbolesalo rather
tban in rotail. The senato was bound by
every sentiment of truth and justice td

Tho senate, bowovor, could apply power
and could oxpel a senator, and thus cnnMo

to be elected senator, surrounded by tnen
of low degree, notorious for low trlckj nnd
