It is reported tbat members of our 111!
nois legislature have written for a copy of
tbe North Dakota banking law. It is said
an effort will be made to pass a similar
meaxure in that state . Private bankers
In North Dakota are still fighting the law,
although its constitutionality bas been
sustained by the supreme court of the
state. The principal provisions are to
compel every banker receiving deposits
to Incorporate and have his business ex
amined by the public examiner. By this
method the safety of depositors Is Insured
and tho banks are taxed In proportion to
e-tpital and business.
It seems tba; the great Pennington
airship tbat was supposed to be built and
ready for a trial trip at Mt. Carmel, Is
not jet really begun. A correspondent
of tbe Chicago Tribune says tbe only

post boles dug on a vacant lot, and tbe
owner of the lot refuses to allow Penning
ton to dig any mora post boles. Pen.
nlngton's record has been looked up. and
It Is found that be failed In everything be

a number of vast and brilliant enter

Invariably been forced to abandon them,
leaving his associates with a lead of
debt. It is evident that bis flying ma

The supreme court of Georgia has re
cently decided, according to tbe New
York World, that a church may be sold to
pay the preacher, the case being one in
which the pastor levied upon the property
for arrears of pay. In delivering his
opinion the chief justice Is quite facetious,
without much warrant In the rature of
the subject, and In a humorous way puts
the decision upon tbe ground that the
Immutable principles of justice require

tbe opinion, at least one exception from

The opinion says that "the law grants
exemptions of property of families,"

Until Actloa le Had on tha Election
Wauhisotox Citt, Jan. 17. A struggle
was beimu In the senate yesterday which
gave promise of hurting- all night, if not 1
all of to-day. In accordance witn nosi-e
notice Thursday that he would call for a
continuous session yesterday until the
election bill had been acted upon, both
parties were braced for the fight and bad
girded np their loins, so to speak, to niirke
It one to the death. After the routine
business had been gotten out of the way,
one feature of which was the presentation
of protests from fourteen states, mostly
southern, aainst the passage of the bill,
and containing iu the aggregate 8.0CXV
signature, the election bill came up, with
Pasco on the Boor to speak in- opposi
tion. tuntiiiK a 4'hnreli Paper.
He yielded to Hoar, who had read from
the clerk's desk au editorial from The An
glo Saxon Churchman, of Little Kock,
Ark. The paper, be said, was the organ
of the Protestant Episcopal church, one
of the most conservative of sects. The ar
ticle was headed "Safety Without Ras
cality," and advocated the sufTrage re
quirement of l,00O iu property aud the
payment of 10 poll tax the white people
of the state having irrevocably made up
their minds that the 'negroes of that state
shall not rule. Oue statement in the ar
ticle was that stuffing ballot-boxes and
bulldozing negroes were making scoun
drels of the sons of gentlemen, and an
other was that tbe plan laid down in tbe
new constitution of Mississippi (the read
ing or intelligence test) was a transparent
piece of humbug, and would not defeat
the negro vote uuless fraud was prac
ticed. Trutliful But Not Well-Inforiuml.
Jones of Arkansas stated that the writer
of tha art iclo (Mr. Carnocban) was not a
southern man, but that he bad gone to
Arkansas a few years ago from Cincinnati,
O. He was a truthful, well-meaning man,
but he had not been lime enough on the
ground to understand the matter, uud
therefore his opinion was worth no more
thau that of the senator from Massachu
setts or that of any other poorly informed
man ou the subject. He (Jones) denied
that there was any effort to deprive ne
groes in Arkansas of their full right of
suffrage. Then Pasco proceeded with his
apeeoh, but developed no new arguments
against the bill, lie spoke, however, nntil
LLpast .8 o'clock when amotion to adjourn
was made by Wolcott.
Not Voting for Adjournment.
Frye demanded the yeas and nays, and
the result of the vote was: Yeas, 27, nays,
82 Stewart and Wolcott being tbe only
Republicans voting aye. Washburn, who
voted Wednesday night against taking up
the elections bill, rejoined his party col
leagues and voted no, as did Plumb, who
was absent when the vote was taken
Wednesday night. Pierce continued his
speech, and when he was done Hampton
took his place at the w ind pump and was
followed by Dixon, who advocated the
bill. Reagan was the next opponent of
tbe measure and he passionately declared
be would as God was his judge if he
could save tbe American people from the
pending measure by giving up his life,
surrender it as freely as he had ever per
formed any act in his Ufa. The galleries
applauded this sentiment.
The First Vote-on tha Measure.
It was 10:15 before Reagan concluded.
Hoar moved to table Butler's amendment
(tbat all election officer, shall be regarded
as ministerial and not as Judicial officers).
Tbe senate at this point got into a parlia
mentary tangle, and Gorman appealed
from a decision of the chair. During this
debate the vice president was evidently
uncertain as to what the question was,
but the appeal was finally tabled 81 to 15
and the sanm rate meted out to Butler'a
amendment. Teller was paired, but aaid
he was iu sympathy with Butler's amend
ment. Faulkner Plays for Time.
Faulkner's amendment nrovblins a
board of United States canvassers in each
congressional district was next taken up,
and Faulkner proceeded to advocate it,
and at midnight was still talking. It was
evident that the object of the Democrats
was to occupy time. The floor of t be cham
ber contained only half a dozen on each
side, but the cloak and committee rooms
held reserves in case of emergency. Faulk
ner made numerous efforts to goad
Spooner, whom he said Hoar bad left in
his place while he (Hoar) retireJ, for re
freshments. Spooner declared that he was
present on his "own hook." but declined
to walk into the trap which Faulkner had
prepared for him. The galleries were near
ly empty, anil there waa a general air of
weariness about all who were present.
A Quorum of Senator MUalng.
Faulkner continued speaking until 1:80,
when the absence of a quorum was
brought to the attention of tbe chair. The
call of the roll showed that there were
only thirty-six senators present only five
of that number being Democrats. After a
brief discussion Hoar moved that the ser-geant-at-arms
request the attendance of
alwent members, and messengers were
sent out to hunt them up. At this time
there were but five Democrats present
All business meantime was suspended,
and at 2:15 tbe chair reported tbat one
senator had sent word that he was ill, and
another tbat he was too fatigued to be
present. A motion was then made by Ed
munds and was agreed to, directing the
sergeant-at arms to use all necessary
means to compel attendance of all absent
senators except those who are ilL
still In Session at 4 O'clock.
The quorum seemed to be completed at
1:50 a. m., and Gorman moved to dispense
further proceedings under the call. The
motion was rejected. There was then a
new roll-call, and forty-three senator
answered to their names still two
leas than a quorum; and the
same difficulty presented itself
as before. In the course of another wait
ing penod it was stated that Sherman and
Wi,ou of Maryland were too ill to be
present At 4 o'clock the senate was still
waiting for a quorum. There seemed no
prospect either of adjournment or buai-

Since the order went into effect for the
hostile to tnrn in their gnos, less than
seventy-five have been surrendered, and
those re old and useless. Gen. Miles is
growing restless at the action of tbe In
dians. He baa positive information that
they are trying to keep their rifle from
the custodianship of the government. Of
ficlal information was given to the press
yesterday tbat uuless tbe redskins surreu
dered their guus Gen. Miles would begin a
forcible disarmament. With this possible
move in view. Gen. Miles has ordered that
no civiliaus shall visit the hostile camp, as
their presence there would be likely to
embarrass him should there be a fight.

Kicking Bear's theatrical surrender
Thursday of his rejuvenated muzzle-load
ing Springfield was followed Thursday
night by Big Road, who presented the
United States government with an old
Spencer rifle, the shoulder brace and
ejector of which were broken. The stork
bad been split, and the only thmg that
held it together was a deer sinew which
had been wonnd round and round.
Yesterday morning old Two Strike, with
featherdmpping disconcertedlydown his
back, turned over a remarkable collection
of guus, one of theia being a flint-lock
fowling piece, with a barrel on it as long as
a fence rail.
Sullea and t'gly Yoang Backa.
The general said yesterday that the In
dians were still sullen and ngly. Before
they broke camp Thursday they wanton
ly destroyed a new mowing machine be
longing to a rancher. Then tbey entered
Rancher George KunlotI shack and de
stroyed his pictures snd dishes. Gen. Miles
held council yesterday with Young-Man-Afraid-ot-His-Horsea,
High Hawk, Turn
ing Bear, and Two Strike, and told them
to bring in the rest of their guns.
M ill Probably Give Up Their dona.
Turning Bear replied tbat they had no
control over the Indiana from Standing
Rock and Cheyenne River agencies, but
they would hold a council with them and
endeavor to induce them to surrender
their arms. The council was held yester
day afternoon, ond speeches were made by
Capt. Taylor, ex-Agent McGillicuddy, and
two chiefs, American Horse and Short
Bull, in which they counseled that the
young men give up their arms as speedily
as possible. This advise will doubtless lie

Commissioner Morgan Gives a Few Facts
About Mr. Lo.
Washisutox Citt, Jan. 17. Commis
sioner Morgan, of the Indian bureau, de-1
live red a 1 aarkabla lecture before the j
Young Men's Christian association last
night on "Some Mistakes About Indians. "
Some of his best points were tbe follow
ing: 1. Uen. rmerman la mtataicen wbn he says
that tho government n reeding able-
bodied paupers. There are but M4,uv Indian
all told, and lr,ono ot these are aKlf-saiirvirting
z. It Is a mtatalce to suppose that the Indians
will not work. Jtfany ot them labor hard. In
Arisona Indian women cut hay with butchnr
kolvea, and carry it a long distance to market
to compete with the Munaons.
8. It ta a mistake to suppose the Indiana can
not be civilized. There are 16,in Indian buys
and girls in the various Indian arhoola. makiug
asgiMMi protrreas aa auy of the pupils tn white
aehoola. This la nut a quant too ot theory, bat
a question ot history.
Some Odloas Comparisons.
4. It is s mistake to have more Indian wars
The Indians are not unfriendly to the whites,
and only to to war for Just reasons. Tbe In
dians are not bloodthirsty. They do not shoot
each other as ln theOklaboma legislators; they
don't need to call out the militia for protection,
aa in the Xebraska lefcialature: they have not
cabala, as tn tbe Colorado lefrialatura. Tbey
have their "four hundred. " and are not bant oa
war. But wben ws steal their stock, shont
down tbelr women snd children, mnrder their
men. break our en gaffe-men ts with them, tbey
have mauttond enough to ng-ht for tbetr rhrbta
and the) r roetibood, which we can never enc
ased In crushtuK out.
Konr More Mistakes Noted.
6. It is a mistake to expect Indiana to earn a
comfortable support off lands and under condi
tions whre white people would starve. Tbey
nave been driven to tbe refuse of tbe land on
this continent, ao stubbly and stony that almnet
any ether human bulng would starve la culti
d It is a mistake to suppose there Is only one
Indian problem. Every Indian family Is aa In
7. lt la a mistake to suppose that Indians are
generally drunkards. In one white town ln the
Indian reservation I would wager my reputa
tion that more liquor Is consumed by the whites
than by all the Indiana la tha-Unltsd States
o. 11 m a uBKaaa w suppose tnst., Indian
service la eurropt. for tt la--n anker the
postofHos or war departn-
nuatake to fall to keep 'faith wtth
-Lm Indiana. It at a national dishonor and
vary ousitly experiment to deceive them. One
of the K-oat secreta of the present diaturbanra
in uastfia la inai too su-cauea - war was
brought I shout in part by the failure of tbe
government to fulfill tbe promises made by the
eommiasiun aunt out to neeutlate with the In
dians, llresard it as unwise, costly, snd s na
tion! dullionur not to knap strictly to tbe let
ter of our sgreement with sny tribe.
10. lt is' s tearful mistake not to make ample
proviaionl for the education of all tbe Indian
children. . lt would only met ft3,iuu,U() to edu
cate all the sons and daughters of every Indian
family. Thia sum would givs each child not
only a common school education, but a thor-ougld-
rood Industrial education, ln one gen
eration ths- Indian question would be solved,
and it would ba solved fur all time.

DR. JiHURLEY'S REMEDY.
Ba Think Chemical Injections Better
Than Those of Organic Matter.
DtTitoiT. Mich.',' Jan. 17. Dr. E. L.
Sburley, of this city, who recently an
nounced his iincovery of a cure for consump
tion, was shown the dispatch from Berlin
relative lo Professor Kocb curative
lymph. Questioned as to the difference
between Dr. Koch's and his own discovery,
he explained that bis was a chloride of
gold and sodiuni. "My remedy is unlike
Dr. Koch's in that it contains no organic
matter. His has the albuminous lymph,
while mine is entirely composed of chem
icals. Mine, like bis, is prepared in a
solution of glycerine, and contains it in
about the same proportion."
Canflilent nf I Itimate Saereaa.
"We have Iwen experimenting with It
for some time upon the lower animsls
with every appearance of success, but of
course I would not state anything con
clusively concerning it yet. Assuming
that both remedies are capable of curing
consumption, I should decide that mine
possessed t be advantage. An organic in
jection is not so certain as a chemical one.
The results of the former are more beyond
control ami its limited -effects can not be
exactly calculated: whereas, the effects of
chemicals can be correctly Judged by their
quantity. As a result of experiment so
far I have liecome convinced that a few
changes w ill have to be made in the chem
icals comprising my remedy, but I am
also more thoroughly confident ot ulti
mate success "
