The citizens of Mankato were shocked be

past 8 O'clock, to learn of the sudden death
of Herman Sehroeder, who died of apoplexy
while seated upon his shoemaker's bench at
the shop of Leo Lamm, on Front street.
Repairing to the scene of this sudden death
it was learned that Mr. Sehroeder, who has
been in excellent health not only recently,
but all his life, having never employed a

THE NEW YORK FAILURES.
All of the Grant Family Downed by
Grant & Ward's Failure.
FredD. and Jesse K. Grant Make Assign-
nieiits for Benefit of Creditors.
Sew YonK, May B.—Grant & Ward
have made an assignment to J. T. Davis. J.
D Fish, president of the Marine bank, has
made an assignment to J. 11. Morris, with
preferences in favor of the Marine bank and
Grant & Ward. Fred D. Grant and Jesse
E. Grant,have made assignments to James
McNamee. The former gave preferences to.
the amount of 8250,000; the latter, $95,000.
A Washington special says the examiner
of the Marine bank has written that strong
efforts are being made to bridge over the
present difficulty. His report is not expected
for a week.
The assignment by Fred D. Grant shows
the following preferences: Henry F.
Shoemaker, New York, $125,000; Ulyses S.
Grant, of Elizabeth, $5,000; Thos. Brend
way, late of Galena, 111., 61,566; Cornelius
H. Garrison, New York, $50,000; Mary D.
Craver, Jersey City, $7,300; Mrs. Ben j. L.
Honore, Chicago, $16,000; Virginia C. Cor
bin, Jersey City, 825,030; Mrs. Fred D.
Grant, Moriston, New Jersey, $0,000.
The assignment of Jesse li. Grant gives
preferences as follows: Henry F. Shoema
ker, New York, $50,000; Mrs. N. A. Hopper,
Hackensack, N. J.. §15,000: John E. Mason,
San Francisco, *15,000; Thos. 11. Bailey,
New York, $15,000.
The assignment of Grant & Ward, Ulysses
S. Grant, Feruandi Ward, Ulysses S. Grant,
Jr., and James I). Fish, copartners under
the firm name of Grant & Ward, names pre
ferred creditors as follows: Edward C.
James, James Henry Work, Wm. S. Warner,
Jerome 13. Chaffee, Frank F. Wood, Edward
L. Short, E. M. Wflmerding, Chas. P. Brit
ton, Ezra A. Tuttle, James G. Gardiner, and
Frederick D. Grant. No amounts stated.
Judge Donahue has grunted an Injunction
restraining all persons interfering with the.
assets of Grant ifc Ward, pending the hearing
of a motion for a receiver, made by the
Nickel Plate company, which is seeking to
redeem §14,000 in bonds pledged to
the firm and rehypothecated by them.
The Marine bank directors have adjourned.
Xo statement is likely to be made to-day.
Director Sieseck says no receiver will be ap
pointed, and the chances of resumption are
good. Fish has not been asked to resign,
but in case of reorganization, there will be a
new president and cashier. The Post calls
attention to the apparent discrepancies be
tiveen the funds stated to have been in the
Marine bank on Saturday and what proved to
be tbcre on Tuesday, the day of the failure.
It says: "The bank on Tuesday had only
$350,000 cash, instead of §1,450,000 as it is
presumed to have had on Saturday in accord
ance with the bank statement. If this money
was there on Saturday, what became of that
large sum, ready cash, between Saturday and
Tuesday? The clearing house balances did
not show the Marine bank a large debtor on
Saturday or Monday."
Coasting 1 Steamer Sunk.
Rockland, Me., May B.—The steamer City
of Portland, plying between Portland and St.
John, N. 8., struck on the Grindstone Ledge,
Owl's Head, this morning. The steamer
left Portland last night, with seventy passen
gers, and a two-third cargo. TLe night was
clear. As day was breaking the first pilot
sighted a striped buoy on the port bow, be
tween Sheep and Fisherman's Islands. In
a few minutes the steamer struck the ledge,
slid amidships, and stuck fast. The pumps
were started, the distress colors set, and the
boats cleared. The officers and crew were
cool, and the passengers behaved well. The
captain landed in a boat and drove to Rock
land, six miles, for help. The steamer
Rockiand promptly answered, and
reached the scene at 6:30. Mean
time a sloop from Owl's Head,
answered the signals and two boat loads of
women and children were transferred to the
sloop. The rest of the passengers, with the
baggage, express freight, etc., were put on
aboard the Rockiand and brought to this city.
The passengers are well cared for here and
will be forwarded. The captain of the sloop
at Fisherman's Island, says the striped buoy
was out of position, and had the steamer
passed within one width on the other side
of the buoy, she would have been all right.
The City of Portland was formerly called the
New England, and was rebuilt twelve years
ago. She was valued at $125,000. It is un
derstood that she had no marine insurance.
A heavily easterly gale is prevailing, and the
steamer is rapidly breaking up. ~ Tue hull
and cargo wfl| be a total loss.

AVasiiixoton", May B.— The chair laid be
fore the senate the house message announ
cing noneoncurrenee in the senate amend
ments to the pleuro pneumonia bill. The
senate insisted on its amendments and the
chair appointed a committee ou conference
on the part of the senate, Miller, New York,
Plumb and AVilliams.
The chair laid before the senate the house
message announcing noneoncurrenee in the
Benate amendments to the Fitz John Porter
bill. The senate insisted on its amendments
and the chair appointed as a committee on
conference on the part of the senate Scwell,
Logan and Cockrell.
Senator Logan asked to be excused from
acting on the committee. He said it was
well known he was opposed to any proposi-
I tion for the relief of the person named on
the bill, and therefore he didn't think him
self a proper person to be on the committee.
The president of the senate stated, it was
the custom to place on such committee some
member who voted with the minority on the
psssajre of the bill forming the subject of
Senator Logan said, he could not and
would not serve. He was accordingly ex
cused and Hawley appointed in his ste.ad.
The chair laid before the senate a com
munication from the secretary of the interior,
submitting supplemental provisional esti
mates, calling for .*i72,6:20 for further cleri
cal hire which will be necessary if the pen
sion bills now pending be passed.
Senator Mitchell, from the committee on
pensions, reported favorably, with an amend
ment, the house bill, granting pensions to
soldiers of the Mexican war. Placed on the
calendar, and the bills heretofore introduced
in the senate on the same subject was in
definitely postponed. The amendment pro
vides, that no such officer, enlisted man or
widow shall be entitled to benefits of this
act, unless defendant in whole or
in part on his or Jier own
labor, or assistance from others for support.
Senator Dawes offered a resolution, agreed
to, calling on the secretary of the interior for
information, whether any steps had been
taken to prosecute one Holfernes, for shoot
ing an Indian named Black Wolf. llolferne3
he said, was a cow-boy, who made a bet with
his friends that he could put a rifle bullet
through the Indian's hat without touching
his head. He made a slight mistake, how
ever, and put the bullet through his head in
stead of his hat. The Indians felt outraged
by this, and in the excitement growing out
of the incident burned a house belonging to
the cowboys. The house burners were tried
and sentenced to five years imprisonment,
but the man who shot the Indian is still un
tried and unpunished. The Indians natur
ally felt that justice had not been done them,
and this matter was intended to bring out
the facts as to what effort was made to prose
cute the first offender.
Senator Van Wyck offered a resolution,
which, at the suggestion of Conger, wag laid
over one day. directing the secretary of the
interior to withhold granting patents to, or
recognizing any clnini made by the Northern
Pacific railroad adjoining, and on account of
what is known as the Puyallup branch, built
many years ago, until this congress shall
take action on the question of the forfeiture
of the land granted to said road.
The shipping bill was then taken up.
Senator Morgan believed the Americans
should be permitted to buy ships wherever
they pleased, and that those ships should be
admitted to the American registry upon first
paying a duty of so much per ton, as should
compel them to bear their full share of the
expense to the government and so as not in
jure the ship building interests of our own
Senator Coke did nbt regard the provision
for foreign mail pay as a subsidy. The pri
mary dilliculty with the American shipping
was the tariff, and it was impsssible to dis
cuss it without discussing the tariff. Parties
may come, he said, and parties may go, but
a "tariff for revenue only," had come to
A vote was then taken on McPherson's
amendment, cutting off compensation for
return trip of ships that may take out the
United States mail. Rejected, ayes, 17;
Senator Vest then moved his amendment,
relating to shipping commissions,- but modi
fied so as to make those officers accountable
to the secretary of the treasury for their re
ceipts and expenses,though leaving their ap
pointment in the circuit court.
After debate on Vest's amendment, it was

which should be used for the building in this
countrj' of ships exclusively for the foreign
trade. This amendment was laid on the

mitting foreign built ships to the American
registry, under a duty of thirty per cent ad

house bill, as amended, then passed without
division or debate, and Senator Frye at once
moved the appointment of a committee of
conference on the disagreeing votes of the
Senator Harris raised a point of order, say
ing, it was in accordance with the principles
and usages of parliamentary law, although
instances were rare, where either the house
asked for such a committee at this stage.
Senator Beck appealed from the decision
of the chair.
Senator Frye said he had known it to be
done twenty times in the house.
Senator Bayard inquired if there -w;as a
precedent for it in the senate.
The chair stated a precedent was in the
case of the Sundry civil bill, March 3, 1579.
Senator Beck thought, owing to the un
usual pressure before adjournments, unani
mous consent may have been given.
Senator Frye read from Jefferson's man
ual to justify his motion.
Senator Sherman hoped the question would
be allowed to lie over till to-morrow.
Senator Frye said he understood the bill
was passed and the only question pending
was as to committee conference.
The chair stated the bill could not go to
the house until this question was disposed of.
Senator Beck said, he had not withdrawn
Senator Frye was proceeding to Bay that,
"if the bill went to the house," when the
chair announced that references to the house
were not in order.
Senator Frye said, he then would suppose

Senator Frye, "sotto wee," I am much
obliged ta the chair for letting me get so far.
Senator Beck insisted, that there was as
yet no disagreement between the two houses.
A conference could be asked for when a dis
Senator Conger did not see. how the con
ference could be asked in case the bill was
not returned to the senate after leaving it.
Senator Frye insisted that this disagree
ment, within the meaning of the parliamen
tary rule, arose when the senate refused to
agree to the house and amended it. But he
would let the matter go over till the morning
and consider what was best to be done. He
might ask for unanimous consent for the

There arose a contest between tho various
special ordi-rs for supremacy, Mr Stockslager
pressing the consideration of bills for the
erection of public buildings, Mr. Singleton
urging the congressional library Mil, Mr.
Ellis desiring discussion on the New Orleans
Industrial exposition bills, Mr. Randal ex
pressing anxiety for the appropriation com
mittee for the disposal of appropriation bills,
and Mr. Payson demanding the considera
tion of unfinished business, being the
Oregon Central forfeiture bill. Mr. Payson's
demand was not acceeded to, and Mr. Hol
man moved to go into committee of the
wbole on the appropriation bills. This was
lost by 68 to 98.
Mr.' Holman, in the interest of public busi
ness, called for the yeas and nays, but Ran
dail declared the roll call would not be in the
iutereet of public business, and the yeas and
nays were not ordered. The house declined
to consider the library on public buildings
bill, and the house went into a committee of
the whole, Dorsheinier in the chair on the
state of the union.
Ou motion of Mr. Ellis all prior bills were
set aside, and the committee proceeded to
the consideration of the bill appropriating
$1,000,000 for the celebration of the world's
industrial and cotton centennial exposition
at New Orleans. Mr. Ellis briefly explained
the provisions of the bill, and
pointed out the safeguards which have
been established for the return
of the aproprlatiou to the United States out of
the receipts. The exposition promises to be
more broadly national aud inter-national in
its character than even the great exposition
of 1876, at Philadelphia. Already every one
was taking steps to have a part in the exhibi
tion and twenty foreign nations have signi
fied their intention to be represented.
Mr. Kelly said he was heartily in favor of
the government aiding this exposition with
,out scrutinizing too closely the possibility of
encountering direct financial loss, an expos
ition such as was to be held at New Orleans,
at which the world would assemble, and in
which a convocation of the American people
would be the active and predominant ele
ment, would pay the people a hundred dol
lars for every dollar which would be
lost if the government should not be
repaid a single one. He wished God speed
to the New Orleans exposition.
Mr. Henderson, lowa, was heartily in
sympathy with such action as would bring
every part of the country into juxtaposition
hand to hand and heart to heart.
Mr. Young favorered the proposition a3
being a benefit to the agricultural and busi
ness interests of the country,and Mr. Seman,
Colorado, in the name of the people of his
state, gave it his support. Mr. Potter could
find in the constitution no warrant for the
measure. If it were necessary to grant a
million dollars in violation of the constitu
tion as a conciliatory fund, let the purpose
be avowed, and not disguised under such a
subterfuge as this.
Mr. Holman opposed the bill, and said it
Mr. Hunt answered the constitutional ob
jection raised against the measure, and
quoted precedents in support of his views.
Mr. Shaw opposed the bill, and sarcasti
cally suggested that the United States treasury
should be placed upon a chartered car, at
tached to Barnum's circus train and exhib
ited throughout the country.
Mr. Beach spoke against the bill.
Mr. MeCoid supported it, and thought that
New Orleans was the proper place at which
the exposition should be held, regarding that
city as the great commercial port of the
