WASHINGTON , May 6. [ Special Telegram. ]
The house committee on territories Bomo
days ago Instnicled ono of Its members lo re
pot t adversely tlio senate bill for tlio division
of Dakota tuitl tlio admission of the southern
half. It was subsequently agiccd that this
Bliould not bo ilono until nil the other bills
having to do with the division or admission
of Dakota had boon noted upon. At a meet
ing tills morning the committee took tip , ono
fiflor the other , the Springer bill for the nd
mlsslon of the whole territory. Tlio linker
bill for the creation of the territory o North
Dakota , and others of similar purport , but
no action was taken on any of them looking
towards reporting any of them back to the
liouso. The republican members of the com
mittee fought vigorously for n settlement of
the Dakota question In some shape , but ns
there are eight democrats to llvo rcpubllcanr
their efforts proved futile , and tlio questions
Is still unsettled in the committee.
When the commlttco had laid osldo all the
Dakota bills , Mr. Baker of Now York , sug
gested that now was the proper tlmo to make
an adverse report on the senate bill , but
Sprlegs , Springer , Boyle and Barnes became
alarmed and objected. A motion was made
to reconsider tlio vote bv Which an adverse
report on the senate bill was agreed to , but
owing to the efforts of the republicans this
shrewd movement on the paitof the demo
cratic members Tailed. It Is very generally
understood among Urn members of the com
mitted that It the bill Is reported to the house
at all there is danger' the admission of
ijouth Dakota under the terms of the Harri
son bill. It Is very well Known that , a num
ber of democrats In the house have deter
mined to vote for tlio measuio , and It is
feared by tholr associates on that side of. tne
chamber that thcro may bo enough of them to
force the bill through in spite of the advene
action of Springer and the others on
the committee. It Is believed and with good
reason that the chairman of tlio committee
himself Is favorably disposed toward it , and
rather than sco Dakota remain Intact during
the remainder of the present congress , ho
will vote with the lepubllcans to ratify the
constitution adopted nt the liuion conven
tion. Fiiends of tlio measure are still hopeful -
ful of Its ultimate passage this session. They
believe that they can get it tip before adjourn
ment notwithstanding tlio efforts of their op
ponents to piovent consideration of It.
It Is pretty well decided that the tnrllt bill
will die n natural donth and not bo heard
from nt least this season. An Intimate friend
of Speaker Carlisle , in talking about the mat
ter to-day , said that Morrison had about given
up all idea of passing such a bill , yet ho
wanted to appear to keep lil.s courage up , and
what is more , to keep the bill before tlio pub-
lie and use It In Its present shape for cam
paign purposes lie announced some tlmo
ago that May 1 was the date for its discus
sion , but this has been changed to May 13 ,
and now it Is stated that the date will
come and co and the tariff bill
will still sleep on the calendar.
It is the purpose of the Morrison men to
keep postponing the olll from time to tlmo
and leave it pendlngln the house through the
coming congressional campaign , so as to tell
the democratic party that the democratic
members in thohouso have carried out the
pledge in the Chicavo platform , and that the
matter is still pending in the house. Mr.
Carlisle Is quoted as sayinr that Morrison
knows well enough there Is no chance for
the bill and he prefers to have it a sort of
galvanized subject foe a campaign issue :
that It is a dead scheme lit only for ridicule.
It Is reported that Chairman Willis of the
house committee on rivers and harbors be
lieves that tlio river and harbor bill will bo
ultimately defeated. Great dissatisfaction is
being expressed with It in the house , and the
senate intends amending the bill if It uasses
the house s > o that the latter body will reject it
WASIFINOTOX , May 0. In the senate Mr.
Logan asked what disposition the committee
on education and labor had made of his bill
Introduced early In the session to provide a
commission to Investigate the condition of
the colored people ot tlio south. Ho was in
formed that a sub-committee had It In charge ,
aim that their attention would bo called to It.
The Inter-state commerce bill was then laid
before the senate.
The pending amendment was that of Mr.
Camden , being an absolute Ions' and shoit
haul clause to each railroad
, r applied sopar-
* Mr. Spooncr opposed the amendment because -
cause It would strike at the Inteiests of the
pioflucers of the west , and because It was
vicious In principle. It would iCMilt , not In
ieduction ot through rates , but in nn increase
ot local rates. It would injme farmers In
the west , while not bonellttiiig farmers who
depend upon local tatcs. The amendment
ipught to dcm-lvo Chicago of Its natural ad
vantages for competition , and would
put nn the statute books legalized discrim
ination worse than the railroad companies
had perpetrated. The we.st , Mr. Spooner
said , could not ship Its wheat to Now York ,
Baltimore , Philadelphia or Boston if tluough
jates weio Increased under Mr. Cauiden's
nmiMidment , but would have to ship by way
( _ .of Montieal. The present was no time , Mr.
" * Spooncr thought , for the people of this coun
try to Indulge In radical nxiuirlmeiitx. Mr.
> l'almor flpoko against Mr. ( amden'H amend-
i nient. lie was opposed to it beeau.se it w.is
unfair to the railroads and unlalr to the
. pcoplu. It would discriminate against cer-
rfotaln railroads In favor of others , agnlnstour
t own railroads in favor of foiulirn railroads ,
' and against our own railroads In favor or
foreign bottoms.
f Messrs. Hlildlebcrgcr and Call supported
Mr. Camden's amendment. The vote being
taken on Mr. Camden's amendment It was
agreed to yeas 20 , nays 24.
_ Tlio technical form of Mr. Camdon's
amendment thin agreed to Is to strike out
from the long and short haul clause of the
committee's bill tliu words "from the same
y.orlKluul point of departure. " The only nv

Mr. lioutcllo ottered an amendment extend

of the democrats icfraincd Irom voting and
left the commltteo without a quorum , but
after the roll had been called a quorum ap
peared and tlio amendment was adopted by a
vote of 1VJ7 to Ti.
At the evening session the bill to Increase
the cftlcltncy of the army was culled up and
nmilo the special 01 dct for the ( list day which
may bo sot apart for the consideration of
other measures.
The house then resumed , as a commlttco of
the whole , the consideration of the bill for
the relief of certain officers of the volunteer
aimy. Much antagonism to the measure was
shown by members on ttie democratic side ,
and Mr. lingers , of Arkansas , moved to strike
out the proviso granting a bounty to
soldiers Arho were discharged to receive pro
motion prior to rc-enllstmcnt as veterans ,
and to all volunteer soldiers who were dis
charged on account of disease contracted In
the line of duty. Though the democrats were
In the majority , thcro were enough of them
opposed to tlio motion to secure Its defeat , so
its supporters refrained from voting and left
the committee without a quorum. Tills was
reported lo the house. A motion to adjourn
was made and defeated. Yeas 44 , noes 110
and a call of the house was ordcicd.
An hour or more was consumed In the call
of the rally and In the reception of excuses
for absentees , A long tlmo was then con
sumed In voting upon dilatory motions , and
finally having becnmo wearied of the strug
gle which merely became a test ot obstinacy
the house at 1:40 : a. m. adjourned ,
Measures That Will Not Pass An Ornamental -
namontal Branch.
WASHINGTON , May 5. [ Special. ] An Im
pression Is growing that none 01 the very Im
portant measures , such as the navy recon
struction , bankruptcy , agricultural depart
ment , etc. , will bo passed by this congress , or
even considered. It Is as good as settled that
the reconstruction of the navy will not bo nt-
temptcd at this session at least , for the ica-
son that the leaders of the majority In the
house feel that too much has alro.idy been
expended from tlio tre.isury , and that It is.
tlmo to stop it. So the campaign issues for
this year are now made up , so tar as congress
Is concerned.
It was exported that this congress would
"do away" with that ornamental branch of
the government known as the geological sur
vey , but it appears that it Is to bo allowed to
run along as usual. It is wonderful what In
fluence the distribution of a lot ot sinecure
positions will have. When the investigation
into the scientific bureaus was begun none
of them had many friends in congicss or the
committee ; now they have so many friends
that they will practically suffer no Inconveni
ence , and will continue to spend Immoiibo
sums of the people's money every year In
pleasure trips and In salaries to the sons and
other relatives of senators aud representa
tives. No one seems to have the nerve to cut
off his sinecure , not even the croaklne Hoi-
man , of. Indiana , whoso son is on the list
Democrats Displeased with JeffDavis'
Treasonable Vaporitifj" .
WASHINGTON , May 4.-f Spcclal.l-Thc mad
dest set of people In tblscouiitry just now are
the democrats whoarecongregatedln thlsclty.
The Jeff Davis hullabaloo In Alabama and
Georgia has roused the Ire of every democrat
in the district , and the air is Hllcd with curses
and anathemas. The cause of this wrath is
not far to seek nor hard to find. These dem
ocrats hero do not object1- much to the
glorilication of Jeff Davis , nor to his spout
ing all the treason he wanted to. but they
tvcry sei iously object to his rendering it very
doubtful It' Cleveland is not the last demo
cratic administration they will sco tor the
next quarter of a century. Tney feel that
the lovalty of the country will bo offended by
tlio treasonable utterances of not only old
Jeff , but also of those of the democratic
governors and legislators of the south , who
aio now glorifying Davis and the tieasonablo
cause he represents. That cause is the lost
cause , and lost forever , thank Oou. For this
the democrats gathered here care nothing.
All they earn for Is a long lease of power ,
nnd by rendering this impossible Jell Davis
and his crowd have brought down on them
selves the bitteiest nurses of the democrats
gathered here , who are almost ready to sco
old Jon" swing Irom a limb of the historic
r apple tiee.

Yonif , Neb. , May 5. | Special. ] llutcher-
son and Collier ret used to sign , the contract
for tlio erection of tlio new com t house which
was awarded to them last week. They based
their objections on the ground that they were
not willing to receive county warrants at

Howard , Lincoln was before the commit
tec on public buildings to-day and proposed
to put up the building at the price olloicd by
Hutchcrson & Collier ( § 49,950) ) and receive
warrants In payment at. face value. Mr.
Howard's original bid was for 848,750 or § 1.-

board rojt-ctcd his bid and let the contract to
tbo York bidders , who now refuse to contract
unless the county will make the warrants as
good as cash. The committee on public
buildings will recommend Mr , Howard's ' bid
to the board at a special meeting to bo held
on Thursday , when , it Is hoped , the matter
will bo finally settled.

PA PILLION , Neb. , May 5. [ Speclfll. ]
Sarpy county taxpayers are in high glee thh
week over the business like manner In vyhlch
Judge Wakclcy has conducted the district
court. When It Is known that for twenty
years they have longed for a session of coltrt
with some pretense ot expediting business ,
and regard tor the interests of the taxpayers ,
the cause of their rejoicing Is readily apimr-
ont. From the day oC the learned hake ,
through the slow-golinc career of the talented
Savage , down to modern time ? , the Sarpy
district court has been the plaything of
Omaha attorneys. They would come out
hero on the noon train , cat dinner , take a
smoke , saunter w > to the seat ot justice , con
Untie a case to next day and return to Omaha
forsupper. This was the dally rccoid. The
taxpayers didn't llkn it , but they couldn't
help themselves. Finally relict has coihe ,
and to say that the men who pay tlio countv
bills are pleased with the the chaueo Is j ut-
tlnv It mildly. The general hope Is that tlio
reformation may be permanent. " "
Doubtless a pi hue factor In hastening the
operations of the jmtlco itiHM was an article
which appeared In the I'apllllou Times last
November , calling upon the court to exercise
better control over Its attorneys , thereby fa
cilitating business and taking a share of tho'
heavy yoke of court costs from the galled
neck of the helpless county , For this hum *
bio request the prajcrful odltora were at mice
am-stcd for "contempt" of court. When
their arrest was announced there was gm- (
oral indignation among the taxpay ! rKiwho
bravely came to the front and offered to Ixjar
any financial obligation the court mightim - :
peso upon the editors. The fall
term of court was adjourned
and the contempt case continued.
It was docketed for the term' Just closed , but
was not called until a tow honts'bufore ad
journment , and then pleasantly dlsuilsscd'by '
the dignified magistrate. From the begin
ning of the session closed to-day Judge
Wakeley has made an earnest effort to clear
the docket , ami has won tlio nitmlratloii , of
every taxpayer. _ _

Men Earn More than Women Some
IjutlicH Make Their Own Dresses.
New York Mail nnd Express : A num
ber of quiet , neat-looking girls were busy
sowing up some new spring goods at a
fashionable lip-town modiste's when a
reporter called. The head ef the estab
lishment was dressed in black with the
utmost simplicity , which contrasted strik
ingly with the brilliant dresses around
"I have " said the ' '
come , reporter , 'to
learn something of how women learn the
dressmaking trade. Are there any
schools where the business is taught ? "
" 1 never heard of any. When any ono
desires to learn the business she goes tea
a dressmaker and enters herself nko an
apprentice at any other trade , "
"Most women who learn dressmaking
expect to work nt it for a living , 1 sup
pose. "
The modiste smiled as she answered :
"It is such a bother to learn it that I don't
think any ono would go into it for fun.
Occasionally , it is true , ladies learn in
order to understand better the fitting of
their own dresscsj but , sis a rule , dress
makers' apprentices expect to gain n
livelihood oy their trade. "
"How long docs it take them to learn ? "
"Well , that depends upon the student.
Generally a girl should master the trade
in ono season. A good dressmaker should
have a quick eye for form and color.
She sllouliLbo. something of aa artist jn
addition to having , nujra mechanical
skill. Most women know something
about sewing , and have little difficulty in
hommingaim stitching , but when it conies
to fitting , triminingaud finishing dresses ,
where real taste and judgment are re
quired , the novice often finds a rocky
road Each dressmaker has a. peculiar
way of Jinishing a dress , as each tailor
has of making a coat. "
'What can a , dressmaker earn after she
has learned her trade ? "
"It depends upon her skill and Ability.
If she is smart she can get 82.50 a day ,
otherwise she may not get more than
$1.00. That is after she has taken lessons
for ono season. Foruladics who superin
tend the work receive an average of ? 25
a week. They are women of long exper-
jcncc in the trade. So far as dressmak
ing at homo is concerned , the paper pat
terns manufactured by n number of
houses in this city have greatly simplified
matters. You see that chart on the
wall ? "
"Yes , " ho replied , "but I don't under
stand it. "
"I don't expect you to , " said the lady ,
Uut any woman , with the'aid of that din-
gram and paper patterns , can bo her
awn dressmaker , although she may never
have taken a lesson in her life. Of
course , anybody who intends to make
dressmaking a business , must have the
aid of an experienced teacher. As with
many other trades , apprentices get no
pay while they are learning , "
'Tlicro seems to bo quite a variety in the
spring styles this year , " observed tlio re
porter , glancing nt the gorgeous display
around the room.
"Yes , " said the modiste , "there is
variety enough in all conscience , but it is
simply discouraging to see how few pt\o-
ple dress well. It is so hard for women
to seu that the charm of droas lies in not
being ultra-fashionable , or showy , or odd.
Custom has put such limitations to : i
man's attire that ho cannot dress in out- ,
rngeous bail taste without making hiui-
self n subject pf ridicule. " w3th" woman
the case is dillerent. She is permitted lo
wear ricli fabrics of many colors , " luce
and jowelry. Go right out nore-on Uroa'd-
way and behold the consequence. Yon
will ace women with loud. , harmonious
colors , nnd gems blazing oh every linger.
All they care for Is a show , mid that they
call being stylish. You will see women
who delight in defying fashion , nnd.
others who are her abject slaves , rogar < l-
less of taste or common .sense. "
"Well , madam , is it not in the power
of the dressmaker to alter this state pf
affairs J"
"I don't see how. Wo h'avo.to make
what there is a demand for. Business is ,
business , you know. "
"Is your business one that men can
ever talco u T"
"O , yes ; there are mule dress makers in.
this cltv. ' *
"Do they make more money than
"From | 3 to $8 a week more. Men are
bettor than women at making waists ,
which are in some particulars Jlke--thu ,

could drape a skirt properly. "

Chicago News ; ' Chicago Is nt present
the hoadnuarlorsjofa collodion of lal-
cntcdgentlemen.who lave for the last
four years hamboozled the great Ameri
can public with nil the skill of opnrn
singers or British actors , four of thcso
gentlemen arc ; John L , Sullivan , Charles
Mitchell , Jack Burke , and William Mul
doon athletes of the latter-day school.
I'ho three first-named nro "fighters , "
while Mr. Muldoon Is n gentcol M-rcstler.
All arc now connected with theatrical
companies save Jack Btirko , who , during
the last winter , has placed before several
.largo Chicago assemblages in tlio role of
a slugger. The theatrical season is now
about oyor , nnd as a result the blanket
dailies of the city have teemed during the
last week with challenges and cotmter-
challonges. Mr. Btirko wishes to meet
Mitchell , and Mr. Mitchell desires , or
says ho does , at least , to meet Mr. John
L. Sullivan , while that gentleman , with
a wild , weird generosity of spirit , is will
ing to whip them both. Mr. Muldoon ,
not wishing to see his minstrel company
left out in the cold , also appeared with a
challenge addressed to Mr. Evan Lewis
( suggestively surnamcd "the strnngler" ) ,
whom ho oilers to wrestle for $000 a side
and the gate receipts.
To judge from the tenor and number
of these challenges an unsophisticated
person might bo pardoned for believing
that a number of terrific prize fights are
about to take place. It is not the case ,
however. It simply means that one or
two nt the most of tlio clove matches ,
which have bccomo a < permnnont feature
of American humbugs , nro to occur in
Chicago. Mr. Muldoon's challenge to
Lewis is BO worded that Lewis would
have to follow him all over the country
in order to meet him. Ho stipulates that
the match shall occur at the place where
Ho ( Muldoon ) happens to bo on the date
selected by Lowis.
John L. Sullivan's encounters during
the last four years are familiar to all
readers of newspapers. Ho has pounded
and thumped with boxing-gloves every
pugilist of America into a state of whole
some regard for him. Ho has fought in
numerable battles during that time ,
made thousands of dollars , nnd never
received as much as a black eye or bloody
nose. Perhaps the most thrilling atti
tudes that he ever graced were the defen
sive , when Pete McCoy shied a gasoline
lump at him in tlio dressing-room of a
Leadvillo variety theatre , and the inani
mate , when n Montana cowboy poked n
gun under his xuosc.l It la also true that
lie has never given his opponents any
thing worse thnnr.i bloody nose or u black
eye. His carecrn began by scaring Mr.
Paddy Ryan ialmbtst to death in
nine rounds - iat , Mississippi Citv.
Mitchell anil Burke have both made
thousands of dolfcirs-and in addition tenet
not having been 'Miurt ! themselves , have
never hurt any1 ono else. Botli men
have repeatedly1 , " ilnMng the last thrco
years , issued the moll sanguinary chal
lengesoffering Weight anybody or every
body to a finish. INeithor has ever
fought more thutf'cight ' rounds and those
always in public-frith boxing gloves. The
boxing mania is'iiorisGqu'enlly on tlio de
cline. People have become tired of
draws , < oightroitiM7b"bxjng matches and
the like. Thoro'havc'bccix ' to6"many chal
lenges , too few JirT/.o lights , and there
are too many chaHipions. ' 'I hough the
old-fashioned prize-ligh'ting was brutal it
was attended by compensating results.
It kept monthly champions in their holes
anil saved money for a public that is too
willing to find diversion in liunibuggory.
There is one man who should not be
classed with the Burkes , Uyuns , and
Mitchells. His name is Jack Dompsey.
During tlio last six months ho has done
more square fighting than Burke , Ryan
and Mitchell have done in the last four
years. He has vainly endeavored to ar
range a meeting with all of these men ,
but whenever ho began to press them too
closely they have always managed to
make other matches. Dempsey now has
u challenge out against Burke , Mitchell
or Ryan. Burke and Mitchell , however ,
have agreed to fight feijrht rounds in Chicago -
cage the evening of Miiy 10. After this
carnival of challenges the probabilities
arc as follows ! That Mitchell and Burke
will fight u draw ; that Dcmpscy will be
unable to got a meeting with cither
Burke or Mitchell while there is money
in public glove lighting ; that Muhldon
could not bo hired to risfk his beauty in
the hands of Evans Lewis , and last , that
"n'ono of the gentlemen mentioned could
bq pulled up before John L. Sullivan
with a block and tackle.
Paddy Ryan , who has assaulted Sulli
van with challenge sfor the last two years ,
has at hist taken a sensible stand. Ho says
ho hopes to arrange with the champion
for a traveling show under canvass , and
have bouts with Sullivan and statuesque
pictures to constitute the chief attrac
A Fleet Stenographer.
Richmond State : ( Jno'of the most rapid
shorthand or.stenographic reporters in
Richmond is George Latterly ; son of Dr.
J. J. Laflbrry , editor of the Richmond
Christian Advocate. Young Latterly is
private secretary to.Gov. . Leo , but lie had
higher aspirations , anil ho made n fight
tor the position of official stenograph' '
in the United States congress.
The shorthand reporters of the capltol
onstituto a close corporation. They
would have no stranger enter their
charmed circle , and least of all from the
south. Tlioy are paid $4GOO ouch , and
their places are worth the having. But
a new reporter was wanted , and the civil
service commission interposed , und Hint
no improper adventurer might secure the
rotund stipend the stenographers them
selves wore nutlioriaed to apply the
crucial test , and Ueorge Lafferty ( private
secretary to GovJif itzlllugh Lee ) came tip
from Richmond. , Tharo was a vivacious
Swede undergoing examination as a wit
ness before a cpngrflssional-committee
and LafTerty was sent to report the
Swede , who uttered 808 words ouch mm-
uto. For five hours questioning lawyers
and the more 'volume ' Swede rattled
away , as did the reporter. Next morning
Lafferty read th010,000 words of his re
port to the lawyers ajcijl the Swedo. It was
pronounced porfeot , and Laffurty won the
place ho sought. YJ . n

"Yes , yes , it happens BO , " said the presi
