Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
abctic explorations.
Washington, April 7.—The question of sending
another expedition Into .the Arctic regions has
taken a new am* unexpected turn. Captain Hall
has been here two months explaining bis views
nnd plans. He asks nothing for himself, but wants
the government to furnish a vessel and pay the
men who will go with him, and has made ar
rangements with the Coast Survey and Smith
sonian Institute to take two or three scientific
.gentlemen. Ills seven yean* experience in the
Arctic regions, and the success which has attend
ed his labors, pat him in the front rank of
explorers, and point him oat as the
man to take charge of an expedition, if
one la sent. The Senate Foreign Relations Com
zntttee fully considered the matter, and agreed
unanimously to the passage of the bill introduced
by Hr. Sherman. The House Appropriation Com
mittee had also considered it Informally, and fa
vorably. At this moment. Dr. Hayes drops down
here and proposes to avail himself of what Cap
tain ilall has done. He asked a hcarlngbcfore
the Senate committee to-day, and, of course, got
It. Ho made a speech, in which he set up that be
was the original Jacobs of Arctic explorations,
and that he, and not Captain Hall, ought to be
put in command of .the proposed expedition,
lie has had three years’ experience In
t&at kind of work. He nas begged the Appropria
tion Committee to hear him, and Monday next Is
act aa the time. How things will come out no one
can guess, but there is a good deal of comment on
the manner in which Dr. Hayes has thrust himself
Into the matter.
The joint of order raised by Mr. Cullom, of TUl
jjol*,UMlaj f IQ resari to tbe duration of the morning
hour, will, if sustained, have an important effect
upon me business of tbe Douse. Mr. Culloro In*
sis led n>ttt u was only through custom that the
morning hour had come to l>e 'regarded as only
sixty minutes, and called attention to the language
of the rule and me parliamentary rulings and prac
tice twelve and fifteen years ago as proving that
The intention of mu rule and former action under it
was to continue the morning hour at each dally
session until Interrupted by a vote of the majority
to take up business on me Speaker’s table or to go
into Committee of the Whole. The Speaker, while
disposed to decide In favor of Gallon's position,
was desirous of baring the views of the Douse on
no important a departure from a custom of long
standing, and it was finally agreed to postpone
jetton until Tuesday next, and men the Speaker
trill probably uphold Cullom, and let the Douse ex
press Its sense upon the subject by an appeal.
The effect of me new ruling would be to enable
the Douse to go on throughout the day if it choose
ami finish any Important matter reported by com
mittees, and if necessary to continue through a
second day also, thus exhausting the whole time
allowed under me rules to each committee, and
enabling It to work through a great deal of its busi
ness without the interference of other subjects.
The general opinion is that me work of the Douse
will be greatly facilitated by such interpretation of
the rules.
Among the bills favorably reported to-day in

Butler’s Joint resolution for me annexation of
Nan Domingo was against the wishes of me Presi
dent. Butler went up to the White Douse two
weeks ago and offered to Introduce it, but me

Quite a etlr was created In the Douse, to-day,
by Butler, In the course of tbe five minutes’ de
bate In me Committee of me Whole, suddenly
taming to Schenck, and s*.ying that he desired, to
retract me charges he bad made against the
Chairman of me Ways and Means Committee, at
of this Congress. He bad promised
to investigate Schenck, and had dune so, and
found him innocent, and be desired to make a re
traction before me House. Mr. Schenck seemed
puzzled at this offer of a certificate of character
from such a source, given after R lung and patient
private Investigation of his affairs, bnt at me close
of Butler's endorsement, said be accepted the
apology in the spirit In which It was given.

Hundred Hollar* Secured by the
Cambridge, April 7.—One of the most brutal
murders that has ever i*ecn committed in this
county was perpetrated dear Colons, 111, on the
Glhlnst. A. K, Slumlord, a farmer living about
three miles west of colona, bad Just sold his farm,
intending to move West, two ruinous, attracted
doubtless by the money supposed to be in the
bouse, effected an entrance while the family
were asleep. A little boy was ly.
log awake in a trundle-bed and saw
one of them attempt to reach under the pillow
of Mr. Mtunford. and gave the alarm, which awoke
Mrs. Mumfonl, and she screamed, awaking hor
husband, who sprang up. Both were Immedlatelv
knocked down with a club. Mr. Mnmford'a head
was completely severed from his body with a knife.
The Uuicboy was then Knocked down and left for
dead. The ruffians then left, after securing over
11,000 In money, and some notes. In the morning,
when the deed was discovered, the spectacle pre
sented was an awful one. Mr. and Airs. Mumfonl
and the boy all lay upon the floor, weltering In
their blood. The boy was found to be
alive, and was restored so as to
relate the dreadful occurrence of the night; but
the parents were both dead. Two strangers, pre
tending to be cattle buyers, who had been hanging
1 about the neighborhood for several days, are sup
posed to be the murderers. One has a light com
plexion, bine eyes, light hair, large features;
weight, about 175 pounds; dressed In dark coat,
and bad on a black felt hat and leather shoes. The
other was tall and sUm, with dark eyes, black hair,
pale complexion, and nervous temperament; wore
a blue soldier's coat, and thick boots. Intense ex
citement prevails in the neighborhood, and If
caught there the ruffians would undoubtedly be
lynched. They traced one of the remans some
two miles over fields, by blood from the wounds
which he had received in the tussle with Mr.
Mumfonl. Every effort is being made to arrest
the murderers.

LaSalle. April 7.—The coal miners here, to tbe
cumber of fire or six hundred, arc now on a striae,
in resistance to a change which the coal companies
proposed with regard to the time of payment or

days for their pavmenu for coal, proposed to bare
the time for paying miners made monthly. It was

Tore, April".—The real work of the Mc-
Farland trial commenced this morning, ami it was
evident from the deep attention with which the
audience listened to the proceedings that the fact
waa duly appreciated. Tho prisoner, however,
E reserved the same calm and composure which
as marked his demeanor since the beginning of
the trial. As soon as the jury roll was called.
District Attorney Garvin proceeded to open the
case on the part of the people, and charged the
Jury that unless the prisoner can show that he was
}ostilled in hts act, he was guilty of morder in the
Bret degree, and such shoold he the verdict.
At the suggestion of the defense, the District
Attorney ordered all witnesses for the prosecution
to retire, except the Brat one to he called. The Bret
witness, George M. King, was called for the prose
cution. The examination was begun by the Dis
trict Attorney.
1:30 p. m.—The witness. Ring, was employed in
the Tribxint counting-room; knew Richardson and
McFarland; his testimony recounted substantially
farts relating to the shooting of Richardson, as
they have frequently been given to the public.
Sir. Graham conducted the cross-examination,
and a diagram of the publication office of the Tn
lune was exhibited to witness, and he indicated
the positions occupied respectively by hlmscU, de
ceased, and the prisoner at the time the shooting
occurred, lie could not remember having seen
Richardson making any motion that imllcatod an
tmendontooscaweapoD. Saw Richardson's pistol
afterwards at the Astor House. Never heard
Richardson boast of his skill with a pistol.
8 p. ql—The next witness, Daniel Frohman, re
counted the circumstances of the shooting sub
stantially as known. Knew that Richardson was
armed. Saw a revolver at the Astor House, after
ward, which Richardson had. on his person- Did
not see a pistol in Richardson's hand at the time
of the shooting.
Edwin Carver was the third witness for the pros
ecution. He was one of the TVilmne mall clerks,
and his evidence In the main was a corrobatloa of
that of the two previous witnesses.
A recess was then taken.
2 ao p. m—Tpon reassembling. Daniel Watson,
mall clerk of the TVihune office, testified to hearing
a pistol shot and seeing two men leave the office.
Did not see Richardson or McFarland.
Captain Allaire testified to arresting the prison
er, and to Richardson's identification of him as
the man who shot hint. Dr. Swan gave evidence
as to the character of the wound, its treatment,
and to the death of Richardson.
A question i>elQg asked bv the defence If witness
was present at the marriage ceremony, objection
was made by the prosecution. Mr. Graham. for
the defence, claimed that they had a right to show
what excitements deceased was subjected to that
accelerated bis death, withwhlchhls client had no
thing to do. He would ahiwihat they called a blas
phemous ceremony to their aid, not tor a mar
riage, but that they might secure the
property of the dying man. That desecrating
proceeding was hot the culmination of a con
spiracy organised by the Infamous gang who first
sowed the painful seed that resulted In such a fear
ful occurrence. They could show that Mr. Beecher
had Id his possession a copy of aa Intercepted
letter which should have put him on his guard
against acting the ran he did. The prosecution
mast prove that Richardson was sent before
his Maker by; the act of McFarland
alone. If Dre. Beecher and Frothlngham
bad done their duty that blasphemous marriage
ceremony would neverhavc take place. Richard
son was unable to determine about taking that
woman for his wife, and they took* advantage of
his weakness. The question was excluded.
Mr. Graham then showed a photograph of Mrs.
Richardson to the witness amt asked to have It
shown to the Jury. Objection sustained.
Mr. Graham then asked a number of questions
relating to Mrs. Richardson, which were ruled out,
as not pertinent.
The District Attorney then said his side rested
their case.
Mr. Graham argued that the prosecution bad
failed to show the death of Richardson was solely
caused bv the woand be received at the hands of
the prisoner; that the Court Instruct the Jnrr that
II the prosecution failed to establish the averments
In the Indictment thev hast failed In an important
brancD ol the case, and that therefore Us client
was entitled to an acquittal. The Recorder stated
that in his opinion there was enough to go the Jury.
Mr. Spencer sold be did not anticipate that the
Crosecntion would close their case so abruptly, and
ad not profiared for opening the case for the de
fence. The court granted him until to-morrow to
prepare bis case, and adjourned till to-morrow.

Two ntllien feet of jLog« Carried
® Ter St* Anthony Fall*—'Temporary
llama Swept A\* ay—XXio TuOncl
Full of Water Ajniin.
__ iVotn IktMirmtnjwlU TViiuiw, April 5.
The moth dreaded ice baa gone out, and al
though.it went very suddenly, and much earli
er than bad been the amount of
damage done is not near aa great aa many
feared. The lumbermen were busy up to the
last moment, cutting a channel in* the ice, in
Si to coniine the rush from above to the
o of the river, and could they have had a
day or two longer, thev doubtless would have
accomplished their object. Aa it wastho warm
weather of last week, melting the snow and ice.
f-wepod the river so rapidly as to bring
the Ice down with a perfect rush on Sunday af
ternoon, carrying awav a portion of the boom
Umbers of tbo St. Anthony boom, and filling
itto the St. Anthony mill pond, where a solid
jam was formed against the mills, and in its
jnasage sweeping away a portion of the tom-
Starr dams, built to protect the work on the
aneL The ice which had come down in solid
calcs of from two to four feet in thickness,
was piled and jammed up promiscuously
against the mills and bridge piers, and for a
time both the bridges and the mills seemed in
danger. The jam of ice in the pood caused
the water to riuorapidlyandto a great height,
overflowing Boom Island, which ia just above
Nicollet Island, and covering it completely
with the floating ice.
The word soon spread through the city, and
hundreds rushed to the bank of the river and
Nicollet Island, eager to see the grand sight
of the ice moving out. Many thronged the
bridges, and at one time quite a panic arose in
the bridge between Nicollet iwiarul md St.
Anthony. The ice began moving, and it was
coins to be carried out, which caused a rash
for the shore. Tbo alarm, however, was but
temporary, as the bridge stood firm. But at
about 4 o clock the pressure from above was so
great that the jam of ico gave way at the mills,
passing out over the dam, carrying a Urge
quantity of logs with it.
The amount of logs in the pond is supposed
to havo been from three to four million feet,
of which between two and three million feet
is estimated aa having gone over the falls,
leaving about a million feet still in the pond,
jammed op against thepiers,where they prob
ably will be secured. The logs carried away
l«clonged mostly to St. Anthony mill-owners,
although some few belonged to Minneapolis
mill men Among the losers are 8. W. Faro
ham 4 Co., Butler, Mills 4 Walker, Captain
Martin, Tidd 4 Gorton, and others.
When tho ico camo down it is said to havo
forced tho water into the tunnel with anch
force as to throw the water in the air to a
height of fifty or sixty feet. The temporary
dam around the tunnel, which was commenced
last week, was in an unfinished state, and.
when tho ico struck it, it was swung around
against the l>ank where it now hangs, appar
ently uninjured.. It can easily be swung back
into position, and, as soon as the ice and rub-
Lirh can bo removed, the dam will bo com
pleted as rapidly aa possible, and the water
cleared out of tho tunnel at once, so
that tho work of closing it up can be
pushed forward without much delay. The
tunnel now appears to bo full of water, and
of coarse will remain so until tho coffer-dam is
rebuilt, which perhaps will require a week or
ten days. Tho mill company are making every
effort to push tho work forward, in order to
prevent any further damage.
During Sunday afternoon twotnen, who hap
pened to bo on Boom Island when the ico
came down, suddenly found themselves sur
rounded with floating ice, with no possible'
means of getting off. The ice had ail sot in
on tho Bt. Anthony side, and the j&to at
the lower end of the pond backed up twrffater
so that tho island became overflowed, fearing
no means of escape, and. for a time, the situa
tion to them appeared rather dubious, and
they were preparing to spend tho nicht there,
when tbo breaking of the lam at tho lower end
of the pond, let tho ico down, and came to
their relief. Taking advantage of an open
space between tho floating ice. they launched
their boat, and hurriedly rowed across to the
bead of Nicollet Island, which they reached in
The water yesterday waa falling gradually,
and in the null pond, on account of the ice and
logs Jammed in the pond, it had fallen several
feet. The river'la now supposed to be clear of
ice up aa far aa St. Cloud, and with tho water
falling, no further damage or trouble is antici
pated by the mill men. They expect to have
the dams completed, and the tunnel properly
protected, so that tney can start their mills
when the logs come down.
From U.e Minneapolis Tribun*, April C.
The water baa raised some since Monday,
and TcaterdaT morning tbo St- Anthony mill
pond became' filled again, which broke the jam
of logs and ice at the lower end, and carried
off a portion of the logs that were not carried
a wav on Bandar. Ko change has taken place
in the tnnnel. the situation remains the same,
with a foil head of water still rush*
isg through, which will doubtless
continue until the coffer-dam is fin*
b-hed. Workmen were engaged yesterday
in strengthening tbo dam on the outside of
Sicollet Island. The work on the cofferdam
from the island to the mills will be pushed for
ward as rapidly as possible, and unless the
water should continue tcit high, wo may ex
pect to see the tunnel fully protected again
within a week or ten days.
Tbo owners of the logs that escaped over the
falls, have made arrangements for picking
them tip between hero and Lake Pepin, so that
the actual loss will not fall very heavily upon
individuals, as it is estimated that one-naif
their value can be realized below.
