Washington, Jan. 27. Senator Squires
has filed in the 6enate the petition of A. H.
Nl.-kerson for restoration to his former
status as a major on the retired list of the
army. Xitkerson sent his wife and chil
dren to Europe on the plea of educating
the children, and then made application
for divorce, alleging desertion and thus
perjuring himself; the reason of this was
that he desired to marry another woman,

from that state to fill the vacancy caused
by tbe death of Plumb, and now tempo
rarily filled by Perkins by appointment of

at the senate chamber bearing tbe certifi
cate of tbe governor may be looked for a t
any day and may precipitate a prolonged
and bitter election contest similar to thoe
of some years ago. The fuct that every
vote in the senate will be contested by the
Democrats in furtherance of their inten

senate, gives the case of Martin immedi
Elected to Fill a Vacancy.
It has escaped the mind of some of the
members of the committee that tbe Kan
sas election was to fill the vacancy caused
by the death of Plumb, whose term of
office did not expire until the 4lh of March,
1805, and that Perkins, the present incum
bent, was only serving until the legisla
ture should meet in regular session and
choose his successor. As soon as that suc

Washington. Jan. 27. The journal of

it be read in full, and the speaker directed
the clerk to comply with the demand. Kil

this would not be done, for in a few mo

are satisfied that the credentials of the
senator from Kansas are good and that he

it may happen that in the event of this

executive and judicial appropriation bin
for the fiscal year IrtH, as reported to the
house yesterday, makes an aggregate ap

provides for 10,816 salaries, being 118 less
than the number provided for. in the law
for the current year. Department clerks

out of the bill.
Some Sweeping Red actions.
A number of changes In salary of clerks,
nearly all in the line of reductions, are
made. The compensation to members of

A Negro Tramp Barbarously Treated for
Milan, Tenn., Jan. 27. The town of
Medon, on the Illinois Central railway, was
the scene of mob violence Tuesday morn
ing. Saturday night Tom Butler, a coun
tryman, came to town and while drank
fell asleep on the depot platform. When
he awoke $50 was missing from his pocket.
A negro tramp, Lewis Newbern, was seen
with the money and Tuesday night was
taken out by a mob and given fifty lashes
with rawhide, bnt refused to surrender
the money, claiming that be was innocent.
About midnight Newbern, half da L
crawled to the station and begged to- be ad
mitted. He was hidden in the freight-room
by the operator.
The Inevitable Mob Appears.
At 2 o'clock a mob of desperate men,
composed entirely of the country friends
of Butler, filled the platform, uttering
curses and cries of "Bring out the black
thief) Hang the negro! Bum him!" A
demand was made upon the operator, Paul
Pearce, to deliver np the negro. Pearce
informed them that he would defend the
man with hh life, warning them not to at
tempt violence. Heavy iron rails wre
found near tbe track and using thorn
as battering rams the frail door was buret
in. Pearce fired several shots, but was
made a prisoner and securely bound to
These Are Tby Jewels, Uncle Bam.
Tbe negro was taken from his hiding
place, but slipped from his captors, and
grasping a bar of iron fought desperately
for his life. Almost beaten into uncon
sciousness he was carried into the bottoms
near the station, a rope adjusted, and the
trembling but defiant negro was swung
from a limb. He was let down and again
asked to give up the money, but, defiant to
the last, bitterly cursed the mob and to i
them to do their worst. Acain h

his body. Ha was then cut down and left
