The Senate bill repealing the
bankrupt law passed the House last
Thursday with an amendment which
carries it back to the Senate. The
bill will no doubt become a law

time those who wish to avail them
selves of the benefits of the old law
had better be prompt in preparing
and filing their applications.
Grave apprehension^ are expressed
that the communistic troubles of last
summer will be repeated the coming
summer. It has lately been discovered
that the Socialists of Chicago have
procured arms and are drilling regu
larly as if intent upon accomplishing
by force whatever ends they may
have in view. $3,500 has been raised
in Chicago with which it is proposed
to arm the police with Winchester
repeating rifles, so as to be ready for
any emergency. *tJSS^T
The European situation remains
unchanged, and the complications
between Russia and England or no
nearer to a settlement, as far as ap
pea auces indicate, than they were
month ago. England still con
tinues her war preparations although
the Russians seem to be more peace
ably inclined. It is thought that the
British ministry is simply determ
ined to exhaust Russia's resources
without an actual conflict, calculat
ing that, unable long to bear the
strain of maintainiug her armies in
Turkey, or to repress the impatience
of her allies, Russia will thus be
compelled to sacrifice the most she
has gained by war and surrender
Turkey and its provinces to the con
trol of English instead of Russian

One week ago last Sunday a fear
ful tornado passed over northwestern
Iowa. The cyelone was first dis
covered at Sioux City about three
o'clock in the afternoon, traveling
in a northeasterly direction. Trees
were torn up by the roots in the
timber belt along the Missouri river,
and fences and nouses in its track
were demolished. I took up and
carried for considerable distances
horses, colts, and cattle. Near Ona
wa a man was driving along the
road when the storm struck him.
The wagon, horses and man were
lifted twenty feet in the air, carried
several rods and put down again,
without a particle of damage being
done to anything. Pieces of house
hold furniture were carried for miles.
The track of the tornado being lite
rary strewn with debris. I the
Griffith neighborhood it is reported
that four were killed and about 30
wounded. The damage to property
was great, and it is a wonder that
no more people were killed.
For the past week Washington
has been excited over the confessions
of L. D. Dennis' and Samuel Mc
Lin, both of Florida. The latter
was late secretary of the state of
Flonda and ex-officio member of the
canvassing board whose decision
gave the vote of that Stave to Hayes.
The confessions of these two men is
to the effect that the returns of Ar
cher precinct No. 2, Alachua coun
ty, Florida, were fraudulently al
tered by thefcrselTW to the extent of
219 votes for the Hayes electors It
appears that the information in the
matter is only the same that was
given to the Democrats prior to the
action of the State anvassers, and
merely goes to prove that if an\ ras
callity was committed that they
were the scoundrels who perpetrated
it. They are both disappointed office
seekers, and the democrats, know
ing of their hostile feelings towards
the president, no doubt prompted
then to make the confession*, for
Democratic campaign material for
next fall. Mr. Hayes holds his of
fice by the most inpregnable title of
any American president, and can
not be effected by any such confes
sions. Election Supervisor Bell, of
Florida, who is mentioned by McLin
as having made a confession, denies
that he has done so, and says there
were no such frauds as McLin alleg
es. THE COSIINO CROPS I N NORTH

On Saturday Manager Merrill, of
the St. Paul Railway company, re
ceived the last of the returns from
the various stations along the sever
al lines of the corporation in regard
to average of crops sown this spring,
and the stock of last years crops yet
on hand. The reports were from 150
stations in Wisconsin, Iowa and
Minnesota, and the figures indicate
that there is an acreage of fully 30
per cent over that of last spring, and
that the prospects of large yields are
very encouraging. Of last year's
crops there are fully 33 per cent.
A careful canvass of six States by
Messrs. Wall & Bigelow, commission
merchants, has resulted in the fol

THE FL0RID1 VOTE.
How It Stands Under the Siatenents
of McLin, Dennis and Selkirk.
^The vote of Florida for president
in 1876, as first returned, was as
follows: Hayes,., -,..,3 $44
Majout} foi lUjeS?.
Stearns, the Republican candidate
for governor, was, elected at the same
time by 458 majority. Upon a con
test before the Democratic supreme
court, Stearns was counted out, and
Drew, his Democratic competitor,
counted in by 195 majority. The
same returns which threw out
Steams and elected Drew gave the
State to Hayes by 43 majority, and
that without the rejection of Clay
county, in which the Democratic
frauds were proven to exceed 150
votes. Rejecting Clay cdunty for
frauds practiced by the Democrats,
majority was 206 votes, and
was so certified. Take the state
ments now made by Dennis and Mc
Lin, and Hayes still carries theState.
"There were frauds alTover the
State, perpetrated by both Demo
crats and Republicans, and at the
proper time I can give thenames and
circumstances. There were frauds
in Archer precinct, committed,by
the Democrats. I believe they
cheated us out of two hundred votes
Add this two hundred to his cer
tified majority and Hayes has 400
majority. Now, subtract from this
the 394 votes which McLin swears
tha^ he suspects were fraudulently
given for Hayes, and there still re
mains a majority of the whole vote
for him. I will be observed by
those wm read McLin's affidavit
that he nowhere swears that he is
personally cognizant of any frauds
committed for Hayes. He goes no
further than hearsay certain pei
sons told him so and so, which is no
legal evidence for anything, and
would not be sufficient in any court
to convict a yellow dog of stealing a
GREENBACKS AT A PREMIUM.
SAN FRANCISCO PARTIES WISHINGLE-
GAL TENDERS TO BUY TREASURY
A" CHECKS HAVE TOPAYAPRE-
MITTM GOLD FOR THEM
SJAN. FRANCISCO, April 25.In
this city, recently sums of Green
backs have been purchased for gold
coin at a premium of fifty cents on
every fl,00 in notes. Secretary
Sherman, wishing to transfer some
currency exchange to the East with
out disturbing the volume of green
backs San Francisco, drew checks
upon himself sums of $5,000 and
$10,000, payable in New York.
These checks were forwarded to Sub
Treasurer Sherman of this city.
Parties here wishing to remit cur
rency to the East, and finding it to
their advantage to use these checks
instead of purchasing drafts at the
bank, have taken their greenbacks
to the ofiice of the sub-treasurer
and made the exchange, as the sub
treasurer could not gn out checks
for gold com, and as greenbacks in
open market are for tho moment
quite scarce, a small pi omium had
to be paid to secure them in suffi
cient quantity to cover checks
spught in exchange.*
