The Democrats of the House are evi
dently resolved lo keep the .Republicans on
record, if only negatively, oa the question
of lccogiiiziug the belligerency or Cuba.
Onc of tlie many ways iu which the
minority effect this was exhibited at
ypiday's sc.s.sloa. Mr. Terry, of Ar
kuncis, ut the risk of being as revolu
tionary as the most revolutionary of Repub
licans, refused to be suppressed by the
Bpeaker, and. while fighting and falling
hack. managed not onlr to make a epeucli,
but to reado thc-Houseceitain preambles
with a iriVllutinn wii.-h were tantamount
to another speech
Tlie firework began Immediately after
the reading, of the Journal. It was an
ticipated, perhaps, that the attack would
be made oa the Journal as the basis for
political .p;vchcs by the minority, and
thcxe speeches are always Interesting.
Jlr. Terry, however, performed a flank
movement, to head off which II r. Heed
wan forced to apply the nrguiiiet.tum ad
bomiiirm, or, otherwise put the gavel in
Anotber feature of the day's doiugs was
b flamboyant speech by Uen. Payne, vf
New York, who undertook to lecture the
Democrats on their general toune in the
House, (hiring which ImpaKsioned'ouiJausht

patemh his left hand. There was-a num
ber c Democrats. who wished to reply to
the lecture part of this .speech, among them
Mr. MoMiliin and Mr Riclwrdou, but Mr.
1'a yn e would have no reply, and he Invoked
the Speaker's assistance a half dozen times
to suppress a reply, "which the Speaker did
Mr. Terry was very adroit He arose to
a question of privilege, and practically
made his speech before statingthe question.
Mr. Terry began as follows:
'Mr. Speaker, oa last Thursday I endeav
ored t present to this House a mattei af
fecting its rights and privileges. I was
Sot allowed to do to then, and I hope I
jnay be permitted to do so now. I am a
Boutheru man and a Democrat.
Mr. Reed-Will the gentleman state his
question of privilege?
Mr. Terry I will state it in due time,
but in such matters latitude has been al
lowed. Mr. Reed State the question.
Mr. Terry-It affects the appointment
bf ttie committees ot the House, but more
particularly one committee.
Mr. Reed That matter has already been
Mr. TerryIt can comeup again. (Laugh
ter.) i Mr. Reed Will the gentleman kindly
rtate his question" The gentleman knows
that he ought td state it. Thisjiroceeding
is wasting the time of the House.
Mr. Terry "Well, there Is plenty of time,
Tind, beuides, we arc doing nothing. (Great
Gen. Payne All this Is out of order
Mr. Terry I desire to be heard on a res
olution which I have here in my own pe
culiar handwriting, and which I will read:
"Whereas, the people ot the United
States are taking a deep interest in the
Cuban question (great Republican laughter)
nod the Senate lias passed and sent to the
House a resolution, and "
Gen. Payne (interrupting) I make the
point of order that the matter should go to
ibo committee, and that IT
Mr. Terry "And whereas (laughter) due
and orderly consideration of the same in
accordance with the immemorial usages
and practices of the House, requires that
there should be a Committee on Foreign
Affa'rs, to whom said resolution may be
promptly referred for proper consideration
and report thereon;
"Resolved, That it is the seiiBe of the
nouse that the Committee on Foreign Af
fairs, authorized by Rule X, shall bo ap
pointed as soon hereafter as practicable to
consider -the Cuban question, or any mat
ter within the jurisdiction of the said
Mr. Tcrty proceeded to advance bis rea
sons lor the consideration of the ie.snlullon
and the Speaker jumped on him with both
feel and the gavel.
Mr. Terry, undaunted, continued fo talk
and Hits Speaker tried to diown his veicc
with his tiip-hainmer fantasia on the desk.
Mr. Simpson, It will be remembered, spoke
of It us u tack hammer. In the breaks of
the uoise and confusion, Mr. Terry was
beard to say:
"I only desiicthe House to Fay whether
. or not I am speaking to a question of privi
Mr. Reed I have hinted that a similar
.question has been passed on and decided.
Mr. Terry 1 dcsiic to have the Hoiu-o

sas will lesumc lib seat.
Mr. Terry I appeal! I appeal! I re
spectfully appeal fiom the decision of the
Mr Terry continued to protest whHe he
moved hack to and was resuming his scat.
Gen. Payne, when order was restored,
Uried to get back to the routine, ignoring
A Member What aboutrt he appeal?
Mr. Reed did not understand that there
was an appeal, but the Democrats did.
He put the motion and it was los4. viva
voce. On a division there were 09 in
the affirmative and 60 in the negative
Mr. Terry called for a yea and nay vote,
which was ordered, and resulted, yes,
1)0: nay, 05. -
The appeal was therefore laid on the
Consideration was then resumed of the
bill to establish regulations for the navi
gation of the inland waters of the United
States. Gen. Payne spoke briefly on one
or two unimportant amendments; ami
yielded ten minutes or his time to Mr
Fleming, of Georgia.
Mr. Fleming argued that the bill wasone
' Involving very grave matters, and it was
notorious that it was full of errors. Ho
knew that there were no committees, but
lie thought a special commlttecought to be
appointed to consider the, bill, and not let it
goout to the country In such shape as that
the courts could riddle it.
Gen. Payne insisted on going on, ex
plaining that the bill had been passed by
the Senate. He stopped th,c debate by
calling the previous question. There
were very few Republicans on the floor.
Mr. Fleming made the point of no quorum
The chair sustained the point; and ordered
a call of the House, the Republicans vot
ing aye, and the Democrats responding
'present" The roll call showed ISO
Gen. Payne here introduced the House
bill or the last Congress, as a substitute
for the bill "which had come from the
Senate. The reading of the substitute con
Burned nearly an hour.
Gen Payne said that the substitute bill
would Include all the amendments offered
oa bot,h tides. One of the special amend
ments was to make the text clear so as
to exclude the great western rivers and
the Great Lakes. He would more that;
the bill be read a third time and pasol-
Mr. Kichunlwm objected- There were.
he said, hundreds of other meiitoriou
bilhf which aie ignored. What was the
i-iattcr with the bills icr the old soldieis?
Republican might Just an well confess
that they considered this till of greater
importance than the pension Lllls and
even the message of the Pietident There
were mine than 2.4G0 bill lntioduced by
itietubertt of the Houfce. Could the lead
ing Reputlicans -en the other Mile indorse

uen Payne replied warmly that Hie
Uepohlkau hide -or the Route wan quite
Katihfied with itself. Cougiea had ai
Mf tuhled for a ticciiic purpose, the iaa
sage of the leveuue Mil. Democrats might
as well understand that nothing could
btnnd-in the way of KepuUicant, "who
v-ouhl alo lake caie of the oIdiers as
they had alway done." A to theCuian
question, the Republicans had confidence
in their Executive. Did the Democrat
ever have conlidencc in their Ex
ecutive since the war? Democrats
(should remember 'that iu the Fhty
first Congress and other years the
Democrat heaped all kinds r at. me and
obloquy on the Speaker, Jrtit the latter
had been sustained by the people, and
some of thotfe Democrats were living to
get cheap notoriety again, placing to the
populace, which Ihcy think is ou the
Cuban side, and by doing everything, iu
lact, to rise out of the oblhion in which
they had been buried. They were trying
to make capital out of the situation.
What was the matter anyhow? llndwmc
new leader come to town? Was not the
gentleman from "Washington (Mr Lewis)
Lull here? It is time Mr. Simpson was
here, but he would, no doubt, appear in
due time if any one tiled to awume his
plnce. Mr. Payne moved the previous
On a division there were ayes 75, nay.i,
15; no quorum Another count Miowed
141, no quorum, present.
Mr Richardson moved to adjourn. This
was voted down and the roll ordered called
on Gen Payne's motion, with theresultof
ayes, M; noes, 00; prevent and not voting,
G7. So the previous question was ordered.
The bill was then read a third time by
title and parsed
Mr. Sherman then presented the con
ference report on the Indian appropriation
bill, the Uncompagre Indian section, ami
the gilsonlle lands amendment, etc., being
the two important amendments left unsettled.
Mr. Sherman said that the la w as to the
gilsonlte deposits was left as berore the
conference, the title being leserved in the
United States The report was agreed to.
Mr. Stevens asked for consideration of
the Joint resolution (Senate 45) providing
$10,000 for the El Paso flood sufferer,, U
be expended under the direction or tl.e
Secretary of War. Mr Stevens had read
a telegram ftom the mayor of El Paso
stating the necessity for prompt action.
Mr Loud, of California, said he would
vote against it on the principle that the
appropriation would open the door for
unlimited yroposllious of the kmd.
Mr. Dalzell remarked incidentally that
the Johnstown sufferers were taken care of
by the people of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Burke, of Texas, retorted that the
Congress of tlie United Suites had taken
an Interest in the people of Indiana. It
wis a Tact also that the legislature of
Texas had appropriated $5,000 unani
mously. Mr. Cannon offered a substitute that
$10,000 of the unexpended balance.or
funds from the Mississippi flood surferers
be expended for this purpose, $91,000
being still oa hand.
Mr. Loud wanted to know if Mr. Cannon
meant that he would continue to violate
tlie Constitution because it had been vio
lated In the past.
Mr Cannon said that he never could vote
no when It came to a question of relieving
Mr. Cannon's substitute was agreed to,
and the Senate resolution as amended ly
Mr. Cannon was read a third time and
.Mr. Odcll introduced a resolution author
izing the postmaster to employ three mes
sengers at the rate or $100 each. Agreed
Mr. Richardson asked unanimous cons'-nt
for the immediate consideration ot the bill
providing for a bridge over the Pink Ri.-r,
Gen Grnsvcnor desired to know if Mr.
Richardson didn't think that the bill ought
first to go to a committee. (Laughter.)
Mr. Richardson Oh, well, this is such a
simple little bill. (Laughter.)
The bill passed and the House adjourned
till Monday next.

A Sensational Episode- in Connec

Chicago, June 3 The grand Jury began
consideration of the Luetgert "wife murder
case today, but did not finish the hearing

a domestic in Luctgert's family, called at
the Jail to see Luetgert, but was told it

the lockup keeper was inexorable. Slie

leave a note and a package for him.
The package was examined in spite of
her protests and found to contain $1,400
in large bills. Questioned about the mat
ter, she said she had collected the money
from Luetgert's customers.
The grand jury was still iu session and
she was hurried before that body, where
she confessed that she received the money
from Mrs. Feldt, the widow whose name
has been suspiciously connected with
Luetgert's. Mrs. Feldt. she said, had
mortgaged some of her property to raise
trie money for Luetgert. The purjiose for
which the money was to be used has not

the Federal circuit aud supreme courts,
and in tue Durrant ca.se an appeal wax
granted to the United Slates Supreme
Court fiot the decision of Judge Morrow,
or the circuit court, denying a writ or

relied upon section 7GG or the Revised
Statutes of the United Statas, which declares
that pcnd'ng appeals to the Supreme Court
of Uiu United States from the deci-Joti3 'if
wri.s of habeas' corpus made by the circuit
court all actum ot the Stale court .shall be

not to hang Worden during the peiulmg

tomorrow. He gave up hope when the
writ or lindens corpus was refused yester

till next October, the chances are that
neither eat-e will be heard before next
January. Much disgust Is expressed here
over the delay, as evidence in both cases
was conclusive and trials fair.

Two Explorer of tu Calvert Expedi
San Francisco, June 3 -Sews fron
Adelaide, South Australia, brought by
steamer indicates that two missing ex
plorers ot Calvert expedition. Wells and
Jones, were killed by natives. L. A.
"Wells, cousin of one of tbe niUsiug men,
eent a dispatch from Derby, "West Ans
tralia, saying that he found a native wear
ing a breech clout made from his cousin's
trousers. The native said the white man
to lead Wells to the place next day,
but in the night decamped.
They caid two "white men were slain,
and Wells followed their directions He
came upon a party or nativcB near the
&pot described. They had a tomahawk
nnd several dishes, which Wells identl
ried as It-longing to his cousin. They were
pollen and threatened to spear "Wells.
Another story comes from Upper Oak
over River of two tall "while men, riding
camels, who were speared on Bloomer
River by a large party of natives. The
one who told this story ws.re a heavy
silver watch chain around bis neck, "which
be said belonged to one of the men,
bu; neither or the men or the expedition
wore such a chain. It is thought these
white men were mining prospectors.
A College Boy and n Pretty Girl.
They were two college boys, gray-haired
and retired from business, yet boys for
all that as they laughed over the memories
that are ever green or turned their faces
from each other and maintained the fiction
of secrecy while hastily disposing of a
few- irrepressible tears.
"There's no harm in telling you all about
that night now, Tom," mused one of them.
"You know that it was a close race be
tween Dick and myself a.s to who should
drive her over to tbe big hop at the beach
1 was the lucky one, because I lured a
sprinter as messenger boy and had my bid
in five minutes before Dick's.
"We had a glorious ride over. She was
the prettiest girl at tlie ball, and as I was
the strong man at college we were not a
couple to be overlooked."
"You were stunners. Fob."
Fob, being a boy again, bad to rub his
hands and chuckle before he proceeded.
"On my way back, having blind- faith in
the irilelllgence of tbe horse, I did not
give my entire attention to the route. You
know, Tom, that there is no end of alter
natives in country roads. Left to himself,
the horse took to a green lane, when he
should have followed the beaten highway.
When he trotted over some scattered rails,
through a gap into an open meadow. I
realized that we were lost. For an hour
I drove like mad, and by some trick of fate
brought up at the gap again. In the midst
of auother trial to find our way tbe east
was streaked with gray, the birds began
to twitter, and she was in a state of des
perate despondency. I found a cabin and
left her in charge or a kind old woman "
"But I thought you had a runaway?"
"Wait I drove half a mile behind a hill,
unhitched, made a wreck or the buggy,
even tearing the top to pieces, turned the
horse ioec, giving him a raiting cut with
a switch, and then walked back to college,
hastening to inform her folks that she
was not seriously injured only badlyshaken
up, you know. She was brought tenderly
home, I made the liveryman happy, and
I guess my generalship is what won her."
"Why, you old rascal'." Detroit Free

The first thing to be taught Is obedi

strong cod line and fasten one end to the
pup's collar, holding the other in the hand.
Then call him, and enforce the call with
a sharp twitch. Do not yank biro, and do
not raise your voice or be violent in any
way. Tlie chances are, that, feeling the
cord for the first time, he will struggle
violently to escape. If so, sit or stand
perfectly still until he Is tired and stops,
then call him again, enforcing the order
as before, the idea being to teach him what
the words mean, and, of course, no pun
ishment is possible until the order is per
fectly understood and willfully disobeyed.
