What is Thought of the Florida Frauds
IJoingn and Spying at tho Capital.
Washisoton. I). C. May 3, 178. There
was a .'cneral expectation, among those
wlio vUitutl the House yesterday, that some
memher would offer the resolution in rela
tion to the Florida crookedness, hut those
gentlemen who have the matter in special
charge were not ready to move, ami ether
eager meml)er had the good sense to re
frain from uny act which might unduly
hasten investigation. I have industriously
sought information its to thc Florida trou
Me, ami am sure that it is a more serious
atfair for Mr. Hayes and his friemls, and
for the Republican party, than is conceded
!y them. As certainly as two ami two
make four, just so certainly the Electoral
CommUsion would have given no eight to
seven vote that it could not '-go hehind the
returns," if McLin's present statement hud
been before it. Before the week is over I
expect action on the part of the House, which
will lead to the bringing of McLin and
Dennis and other Florida people before a
committee to testify.
Beside this Florida business there is a
story of wickedness from New Orleans.
Senator Kellogg is said to have charged that
one of the members of tho Louisiana Re
turning Board received ten thousand dollars
for throwing out Democratic and throwing
in Republican votes. XoIkjiIv will doubt
the story, even though it comes from Kel
low. It is certain that all those Louisiana
ami Florida rogues got office if they wanted
it, and the common belief, based on con
curring Democratic and Republican testi
mony, is that nut one of them would have
refused money if it hail been offered. AWit
the only question, if there is any question,
is whether or not Jack Chandler, Foster
anil the ret, attempted to buy the precious
lot. If they trieil they succeeded.
The Senate and House appear to agree
that there should be no further contraction
of greenback emulation. The House ex
pressed its views to that effect yesterday by
a vote of 177 to ',)', ami in the Senate there
is thought to lie no greater division of sen
timent. A still-committee of a House committee
lias agreed to report a bill limiting to fifteen
the number of Chinese who may come in
one vessel at one time to the United States.
This, I believe, if passed, will be our first
law of the kind. U. S. Judge- Sawyer de
cided yesterday, in San Francisco, that a
Chinaman is "not a white person within the
meaning of the term as used in the natural
ization Laws." and not, therefore, entitled
to become a citizen. Few of the race have
shown a desire to be naturalized, ami the
decision of the court, even if sustained,
which is doubtful, will probably have little
effect upon emigration. But the proposed
net of Coiioress will be elVectual.
The legislative, executive nnd judicial ap
propriation hill foots up, as it passed the
house, less than $ l.tyJOO.niMl. This is sjfi,-
(100.000 less than the hist bill of the kind
passed by n Republican house. It is also
less than the bill of last year. The house
committees have shown a disposition to
make reductions wherever they were possi
ble. A few years of Democratic cohutcss
Democratic in both houses nnd senate
ami the expenses of the government would
be reduced very mrterially. Control of the
house by Republicans, on the contrary,
means a returning to large expenditures.
I'his is so plain that I don't like to repeat
it often, but all do not seem to understand

SERIES OF EXPLOSIONS OF
A Collossal Structure Swept
Out of Existence.
AND OTHERS DESTROYED BY FIRE.
Fourteen Persons Bereft of Life by the
LOSS ONE AND A HALF MILLION OF
Minneapolis, Minn., May 2. At seven
o'clock this evening tlie city was shaken as
by an earthquake by a fearful explosion,
which was promptly traced to the group of
great flouring mills in what is known ns the
Platform, just alwivc St. Athony falls, where
the entire flouring districts oi the city is
poncentrntod. The explosion camo trom
the great Wushburnc mill from which a
column of flame was seen to shoot up seve
ral hundred feet followed by a crash which
crushed thc immense structure like an egg
shell. Secondary explosions instantly de
stroyed Thompson & Hoyt and the Jlum
iKililt mills, and the flames immediately
burst out, communicating to Galaxy mills,
those of Pettit, Robinson ii Co., Cahill,
Ankeny & Co., L. Day & Sons, Day & Rol
lins, Buell, Newton it Co., Garton, Hay
wanl k Co. the Washburno A and B
mills and lesser structures, down the bank
of the river, nearly to the Minneapo
lis ami St. Louis railroad shop.
DESTUUCTION KJiOM THE SHOCK
of the explosion extended much further,
glass being wrecked for several squares and
buildings shaken throughout the city. At
8:30 the fire was raging within these'liinits
and the fireman working valiantly to sub
due the flames. The immediate theory of
the explosion is that it took place in the
gas generated in the patent middling puri
fier process. The loss of life is undoubted
ly great, but full details are lacking in the
confusion that surrounds the scene. First
rumors made the dead seventy to eighty,
but this is not lxirne out by inquiry.
took place nt the hour of changing day for
night hands, nnd many of lxith were un
doubtedly in the building. Twenty-two
men went on in the Vetslmm mill at 0:30.
None of them have lieen heard from up to
8:30. Many others of the day force must
have been in the building. Up to 9 o'clock
the list ot

Later investigation confirms the opinion
that the first estimates of the loss of life
were exaggerated ; the number of dead is
now placed at seventeen. Many thrilling
incidents and narrow escapes are rejiorted.
Daniel Dav was blow the whole length ot
Pettit & Robinson's mill nnd through a
window and escaped. )ne poor fellow, who
could not be recognized, had c:;capcd alive
from the explosion and was observed crawl
ing through the darting, hungry flames '
wards the track of the Minneapolis and St.
Louis road direc tly in the rear of the Wash
burn mill. He managed to r -ach the rail
ami then evidently became exhausted and
fell hack into the raging hell behind where
his agonies instantly ended.
It now appears that most of the day force
had gone home and only the smaller night
THE LOSS TO I'HOPKUTV
Is enormous, but the confusion is ttxi great
for any intelligent estimate at present. A
roiti.'h'calculatioii places it at $1.."0),000. of
which $1.0)li,000 will fall upon the milling
interest. The loss throughout the cilv by
breaking of glass, etc' is $10.0:10. Five
mills ami a plaining mill were destroyed
besides adjoining property, including' S
out of the 1H7 runs of stone in the city.
The five flouring mills, which are involv
ed in the disaster, form a groupwhich com
pr'scs the heaviest concerns in the state.
Chief among them were the two Washburn
mills, the property of cx-Gov. ('. (', Wash
burn, of Wisconsin, of which the one in
which the explosion occured was the larg.-st
lloiirishing-inill in the country and the larg
est but one in the world. It wall built in

that the dead will he confined to the four

GOLD BEHIND HIM.
Ban FnANCisco, May. W. S. O'Brien, of
Flood & O'Brien, died at San Rafael this
afternoon after a lingering illness of several
months. His death will in no manner in
terfere with the business of the firm. About
a year nnd a half ago all the property of
the firm was divided, with the exception of
the mining stock business, which remains
m common, Mr. Hood having the manage
ment of deceased's interests. The arrange
ment will continue in force for the present,
nnd business will go on ns usual. Mr.
O'Brien's death has been hourly expected
for several days. He leaves a will, tho con
ditions of which nre as yet unknown. He
was a bachelor, but has a sister, niece and
nephew in t'ds State, and a sister ami niece
in Paris or en route. His property is vaguely
estimated at $13,000,000 to $-,'0,000,000, hut
it is intimated that, as usual, rumor has

Memorialists Encotirajriiicr the Queen in

Fropoaod Lockout of tho Cotton
New Yohk, May 3. Dispatches from
London yesterday say that a memorial to
the Queen is being extensively signed in
Sheffield expressing confidence in the Min
isters and a willingness to sacrifice for
the conduct of war until the cause
of peace and order in Europe is secured
from lawlessness and reckless oppression.
Blackburn operative cotton spinners ad
journed the question again of seeing the
masters tor a week. All operatives, al
though complaining of hunger, seem to be
perfectly firm. They regard the intended
lookout ns a Godsend, because it will bring
on a crisis quickly.
A telegram from Blackburn says the
lookout contemplated lry thc masters will
embrace the main artery seventy miles long,
from Ulverston to Colne, with branches far
ami wide. The strike is mostly ended at
Church and Accrington, but elsewhere the
spirit is becoming more uncompro
mising. The masters declare that
they have gained to the extent of
10 percent, by clearing off their surplus
stock at better prices than could be obtain
ed if the mills had been working. From
two or three thousand weavers met at
Darwcn Wednesday and reaffirmed they
would only accept reduced wages if coupled
with reduced time, and would not even
communicate with the masters at present.
Disturbances occurred at Burnley last night.
T he operatives ot one mill who accepted
reduction were hooted and pelted.
THE EASTERN QUESTION.
Russia Desirous of Peace with England
Irritation nt Ht. PptcrtOmvg on
Question of Fortrt'SttfH.
New hikk, May 3. Cable telegrams
state that a St. Petersburg corresKmdent
says it is not at all probable anything in the
shape of an ultimatum will be sent to the
Porto tor the present at least, although there
may have been some such intention a little
time ago when it was believed England had
determined on war and was merely en
deavoring to gain time. Now, however,
extreme skepticism in regard to the pacific
aspirations of some of the British Ministers
seem to be diminished. Russia is not like
ly to do anything to precipitate a crisis as
long as a reasonable chance for a pacific
solution remains. A well-informed St.
Petersburg correspondent of the Political
Correspondence says the important decisions
which caused this favorable change in Rus
sia s attitude were arrived at in a great conn
cil presided over by the Czar on April
Great irritation prevails ut St. Petersburg
on the question of fortresses. The Turks
having no fear of occupation of their enpi
tal, justify their non-surrender of fortresses
by asserting that tho Russians have no
right to remain at Tehatahlja, not to men
turn San Met aim. lhe lurkish argument
on the point appears to be well founded,
It is also said that Fasili Pasha, Command-
mt of Shuiuia, has declared that he will
not surrender it. The Turks are also rais
ing difficulties in regard to dispatching
commissioners to assist in pacilving Mus
It is stated that the Russians are remov
ing stores which the Grand Duke Nicholas
accumulated at Rujukdcrc, which would
seem to indicate that all idea of embarking
there had been abandoned.
WHY GIRLS CANNOT
The dill'. Tcnee between a girl s throwing
and a boy's is this: The boy crooks his
elbow and reaches back with the upper
part of his arm at about right angles with
his body, and the fore-arm at an angle of
about forty-live degrees; the direct act of
throwing is accomplished by bringing the
arm back with a sort of simp, like the tail
of a snake or n whip-lush, working every
joint trom shoulder to wrist, and sometime
making your elbow sing as though you had
got a whack on the crazy-hone. The girl
throws with her w hole arm rigid, the ooy
with his whole arm relaxed. Why this
marked ami unmistakable difference exists
we .never learned until, at a somewhat ad
vanced period, we dove Into a book of
ilivsiologv, and learned that the clavicle,
or collar l-one, in the anatomy ol a leinale

This long, crooked, awkwaid bone inter
feres with the full and free action of the

Commissioner Clements, when return

Carbondale Observer, brought home the re

was recently discovered on the State's Prison
grounds in digging a trench gome twenty
four feet under the late surface of the earth.
It has suffered a considerable decay, but a
portion of the enamel is on one side of the
tooth ami seems entirely perfect to the nak

est prong still remaining is eight inches in
length, although it is very much reduced
