Congressm an P.kowkr, of North Car

A real Kelorm.
The story that General .lohn M. Palm
er will succeeil Congressman Springer in
the house of representatives lias leen
Riven some circulation in Illinois, but it
is entirely without Inundation. General
1 aimer will not accept a nomination to
the house. The Ilixih'ir makes this
statement by authority, though it ought
to be plain enough tnt the ilemocrttts
cannot afford toaitcritice General Palmer
as a leader by sending him to the house.
He will he nominated and elected to the
senate to biicceed Farwcll, if he will ac
cept. On this point lie says in a recent
letter from which the II, inthlic is allowed
to make extracts:
Since the abrogation of the common
law of American politics, which made it
the duty of senators to obey the instruc
tions of the legislatures of their reieo
tive states, the senate has been irrespon
sible to the people. In many of the
states organized wealth has controlled
the election of senators and dictated to
the legislatures the jM-rsons to be elected,
and the result is that the senste may be
relied upon to defeat every reform and
conserve all profitable abuses.
The readiest means to make the senate
responsible to the people anil useful as an
aid in iln-cting political reforms is that
political parties shall nominate their can
didates for the senate, and go before the
people with their platforms and candi
dates. There is reason to believe that
the democrats of Illinois will adopt that
line of policy in
I do not desire to lie the candidate
selected, because I do not want the posi
tion. I would consent to undertake the
duty only upon the distinct ground that
the democratic party of the slate, with
substantial unanimity, required it. and
then I would insist that the contest should
be freed from all complications ami te
conducted without reference to the future
of politics or to its influence upon the
prospects of presidential candidates.
I may add, too, that I would not accept
the candidacy for the senate unless, when
the time comes, 1 should be physically
able to lead in the contest. "Soldiers
never fight well when the commander is
compelled to give his orders from an am
bulance." The ItriHihlir hopes to see General Pal
mer leading the fmht in !ti with the
same strength be showed in Ids magnifi
cent canvass last year. He can carry
Illinois ior the democrats, and they claim
his services. AY e are confident that be
will lead the fight in 1NU.I and win. He
does not care to go to the senate, but be
does care to make the fitrht for democracy
and good government, and be is a man to
count on and rely on when such a fight is
to be made.
The movement for reform in senators
ial elections he lias so clearly, though
briefly, outlined cannot fail to become
national. The purchase of the party
caucus in senatorial elections by the leg
islature is one of the open and notorious
evils of that plutocracy General Palmer
so strenuously resisted in the late cam
paign. 1 he nomination of the party
candidate for senator in the party conven
tion will make the vote of the people an
absolute instruction to the majority of
the legislature, and the power of money
to buy scnatorslnps will be broken. The
senate, now plutocratic and irresponsible.
will be brought hack to a sense of re
sponsibility to the iieople, and it will
become representative of the will of the
states as it was intended to be.

London, Jtly 20. There was an unusually
largo attendance of members iu the hoine ot
comm.. ns yesterday, and many whose faces
are rarely vn within the chamber took
pnina to prnoe the occasion with their
prww'nce. The interest in the delate on the
part of the outside public was also made
manifest by the crowded condition of the
galleries, where every available inch of
pace was occupied. The great attraction
was, of course, the expected debate on the
ul.j. et of the royal Kraut, which Smith, the
government leader in the bolls of common,
announced on Monday would cvin.t up
What They TCanrod to Know.
When Smith rose in place to move the
adoption of the report of the special commit
tee on royalty grants every eyo was directed
toward him and evory ear strained to catch
his wor ts. When he had formally offered
the government' motion, he was promptly
qtie-rionxd l.y ineniber of the opposition as
to the present condition of the queen'
finances. They demon. led to know what
savings the queen had made out of tue allowance-
already made for the support of the
Smith Iteru-e the Information.
Smith d. Inie l to reply to these questions,
which, lie elnimed, were entirel y irrelevant
to the subject in hand, it w is not the duty
of the sovereign, he said, to provide for the
royal family. The government (xll j no
llieve that there existed any important
nlass among the loyal people of the British
empire who .grudged to royalty the very
mini, rate provision necessary to maintain its
iliK-inlv,a dignity which was notalone that of
the royal family, hut of the empire as well.
If the system of other civilized couutrie
were examined it would lie found that the
Knp1i-.li was by all odds the most economical,
f ui ui-lnu-C lis it does at the moderate exiense
wliieli the Mipmrt of a royal family entails
that stability winch is so essential to govern
ment and which obtains for Kugland the re
spect of every fieople of the glolie. He could
not believe that the people of England were
prepared to saiTilico for the paltry consider
ations here presented the benefits of a (table
K .Vi-rnnii-iit wlucli fluty so lurgely owed to
the royal fam.lv. Nor could he lietieve that
for llie same considerations the nation was
prepared to sacrifice the dignity of their
rulers an 1 the dignity of tho groat British

1 jibotieliere moved In substitute for the
eoniniiibsj'a report. This xulistitiite is in the
form of an a I Iress to the queen, stating that
in the opinion f the house her majesty ought
to provide for her grand-children out of her
present income, Labouchere staled that it
was his opinion, und the opinion of those
who stood with him on this quntion, that the
sum- already granted to the royal family out
ol the public treasury were quite sufficient
for all proper purposes with which the peo
ple had any concern.
The t-ijigllah Sjitfm Not Kronnmical.
He ridiculed the statement that the Eng
lish sysiem was the iot economical in the
world, ami pointed to the great natiou across
the water, w hinh paid its president a yearly
salary of ilO.IHM, as against the 70,000
which the queen and her family already cost
the people of England every year. He was
determined to oppoae all further grants to
junior royalties, and he spoke not only for
himself, but for many others who aetod with
bim in support of this substitute for the
Waul Those Savings Divided.
Notwithstanding the refusal of the honor
able gentleman to reply to the inquiries as to
the queon's savings, the government was al
ready on record a admitting that largn sav
ing had been made out of the allowances
heretofore granted the queen for her civil
list These savings, he understood, were
well invested, and, if it was true, as it had
been stated, that the queen had out of these
savingR given various sums to several of her
grandchildren, he had no f iubt there was
enough left to provide for the others.

He insisted that the extreme limit which
the nation should put upon its Inanity to
royalty was reached when a proper provision

To extend the priuc-ipW of royally grants be
yond this limit was to treat with injualica

try ought not to lie asked to submit to the
burden of support for an inundation of
grand-children. If it were found that the
present wa-tuf ul extravagance on the part of
the royal family would need to tie kept in
bounds in the alsfnce of further allowances,
he should hnrdly consider this a calamity,

Hanker Iiina, of that city, whose sensational
trial on the charge of murder ha kept the
whole city in a fever of excitement for a

Philadelphia, July 2K Surprise was
occasioned in business circles yesterday by
the announcement that the firm of Lewis
Bros. & Co., wholesale dry good dealers,
240 Chestnut street, had made au assignment
for the benefit of their creditors. While the
exact amount cannot as yet be ascertained,
it is thought the liabilities of the firm will
sum up nearly $4,000,000. It is not likely that
this amount will be increased by later devel
opments, and it is hoped thatan examination
of the books will considerably decrease it
lias Hopes for the Outcome.
Tbe firm is one of the largest in its line of
business in the city, and perhaps in the coun
try. It has houses in many of the larger
eities of tbe United States, notably New
York, Chicago, Italtiinore and Boston. The
memtiers of the linn resident in this city are
Oeorge W, Wharton, Joseph W. Lewis and
Henry Lewis. Mr. Wharton, when seen
yesterday morning, promptly admitted the
authenticity of the rumor that'hia firm had
made au assignment for the lienefit of their
creditors. Cornelius W. Bliss, of the N,tw
York firm of Bliss, Fabian & Co., restated,
was the ai-signee. "I am unable," continued
Mr. Wharton, "to place the amount of our
liabilities. However, 1 feel convinced that
they n ill not be iu excess of our assets."

wbo was senator from Arkansas from 18T3
to ls7; and a prominent defendant in the
star-rouie trial, was arrested here yesterday,
and is now in the custody cf the sheriff. The
order of arrest was issued by the supreme
court atx'iit three weeks ago uKiu an applica
tion of Solomon Hanford, of Shipmau,

days alter date to the order of Jesse R.
Grant, son of G.n. Grant, aud Julius Les
yuski. O.d into Contempt of Conrt.
The note was cashed by the Bank of Ne
vada and some of the principal was paid. A
suit was brought here iu the supreme court
on the unpaid balance, and, Horsey uiakiug
no defense, judgment was granted. He was
adjudged guilty of contempt of court for
disoheying mi order requiring him to sub
mit to an examination, and fined the amount
of judgment ami costs, and an order of ar
rest was issued. Dorsey promised to pay
me line, iiut be did not, and the order of ar
rest was put iu the bands nf a deputy sheriff,
who arrested him at his residence yesterday
Another Little Kill to Par.
Dorsey was a good deal excited by the ac
tion of Sir. SlcUouigle, the deputy sheriff,
and insisted on being allowed to go down
town to attend to his private business, say
ing that he had JltHl.lKSI lo pay yesterday
and he must mt lm kept in custodv. He was
nearly corioet in his assertion that he had

ceeding as to his projierty.
Another Contempt Cae to Meet.
After his arrest Horsey sent a messenger to
Lawyer Kaufman's office to say that he
would not l e able to app-nr there aud lie ex
amined, and then went, under Mr. McUnn
igle's care, to the otli-e of Ins law vers. While
be was there Mr. Kaufman rushed up to the
supreme court chambers and procured a new
order, requiring Dorsey to apiiear in cham
bers to-day and show cause why be should
not be fined the amount of the levy judgment
of aiia.uaitminst him. This was promptly

Evidences of a Human Slaughter Discov
ered In Nebraska.
Yankion, D. T., July 26. A party of ex
plorer unearthed yesterday a number of
human skeletons burled in Chalk bluffs,
ten miles east of Yankton, on the Nebraska
side. Fifty skulls and 200 headless skeletons
were found which local physicians pro
nounce to be the remains of white people,
children and adults. Indications are that
they have been buried forty or fifty years.
Two theories are advanced to account for
their presence. One is that tliev
grants bound for California in 1S4S, wbo
were murdered by ludians. Another the
ory is that they were ludians of some tribe
at war with the Sioux and that they were
massacred. The death would seem to have
been inflicted with a club. Further re
searches will be made.
