special dispatch to the St. Louis Post
Dispatch and the same dispatch to the
New York World state that when the
tariff debates begin at 1 o'clock in the
afternoon, every senator except three or
four leaves the senate chamber and goe3
driving or otherwise amuses himself.
The correspondent says: "A glimpse of
the senate yesterday afternoon afforded
a fair illustration of the utter lack of in
terest and Inattention. Senator Gallin
ger, at 2 o'clock, was going through the
I motions of a senator delivering a speech.
I He had borrowed a chair down in the
front row and was reading so fast that no
stenographer could report him from a
mass of typewritten manuscript about a
foot thick. He actually read so fast that
all sense of punctuation and inflection
was lost. " The vice president was dozing
in his chair, one clerk was on guard at
the secretary's desk, where generally
there are four, and all the pages but one
were playing marbles and boxing down
in the basement. There were two sena
tors oh the Republican side; one was the
handsome' and wealthy McMillan of
Michigan, who was listening because he
expected to take the floor later in the day
and wanted Gallinger to listen to him.
The other was the long-whiskered
Moses Dolph of Oregon, who was listen
ing for. the same reason. Over on the
Democratic side Senator Cockrell was
writing letters, Pugh of Alabama was
talking in a stage whisper that could be
heard all over the house to one of his
friends, and the new senator, Walsh of
Georgia, sat on a sofa telling stories to a
group of friends. Through the open
door of the cloak rooms on both the Re
publican and Democratic side of the sen
ate chamber blue smoke was issuing,
and the repeated bursts of laughter in
dicated that Wolcott or Blackburn or
some other of the jolly men of the sen
ate had told a new story. As it grew
toward 5 o'clock the cloak room crowds
evaporated and no one was left but the
four or five senators pretending to listen
to Gallinger, McMillan and Dolph, and
up in the gallery a few spectators were
scattered, wondering what it was about
and wherg they were at." This is what
general debate on the tariff means in the
senate; so this is the way that congress
is legislating for the people. - How do
you like it?
Chicago Herald: Governor Bombastes
Furioso Jackson, of Iowa, has added
neither to his popularity nor to his rep
utation for good sense by badgering the
Coxeyites with the militia. Kelly's army
made its progress from California to
Council Bluffs without causing any
troubla There was no indication that it
would do any harm in Iowa. But Jackson,
either from an itch for notoriety or
through the promptings of fool advis
ers, made a great hubbub and ordered
out the state troops to maintain the peace.
The result has been exactly opposite to
that which was intended. All the dis
order that has occurred has been caused
by drunken militiamen and vaporing
officers. The Coxeyites have been not
ably quiet and law-abiding. If Jackson
had kept his hands off the commonweal
en would probably have been out of
the state by this time. His interference
has stirred up a turmoil, got the rail
roads into a bad humor, caused the citi
zens of Council Bluffs great expense and
trouble, and kept Kelly's followers from
pursuing their march. He ought to be
proud of himself.

The Steamer Strikes a Rack Near Mon
terey. CaL. and Six Lives Los'.
Monteret, CaL, April 23. From the
latest information to be had here it is
believed that at least six lives were lost
with the steamer Los Angeles which
struck on the rocks off Point Sur late
Saturday night. Three bodies have been
cast upon the beach near the light house.
These are the bodies of Timothy No
lan, fireman of the steamer; Fitzgerald,
a passenger, and a hostler named Saun
ders from Los Angeles. The youth who
died in one of the lifeboats from expos
ure in the water and while clinging to
the rigging, was the son of Mrs. Augusta
Curtin of Loa Angeles. It is also known
that S. N. Sheridan an aged passenger
from Ventura, and a Chinese steerage
passenger from Los Angeles were
The manner of the fireman Nolan's
death was an added terror to the occu
pants of the life boat in which he at
tempted to reach the shore. The man at
the oars worked the heavy craft almost
into the breakers which pounded up
against the steep, rocky cliffs at the sum
mit of which is Point Sur lighthouse,
but so dangerous waj their position in
the heavy swell that they dared not, at
tempt a landing below the cliff.
When they put about and headed out
to sea again, Nolan plunged into the sea
determined to swim to the rocky shore.
It was little less than suicide, for he
drowned In full sight of all in the boat.'
It Is believed that later reports will re
veal a still greater loss of life.
The steamer Los Angeles has now
sunk . below the surface of the ocean.
Nothing can be saved. There was no in
surance on the vessel.or her cargo which
is estimated worth $50,oQU.

Judge Hazen holds that the legislation
by the Sovereign Grand lodge I. O. O. F.
enacted in 1892, gives full authority to
the Grand lodge of Kansas to levy the

legally levied. Also that the deed of
trust made by Mr. DeBoissiere, vests the
title to the valuable property conveyed
by him, in the Grand lodge I. O. O. F. of
Kansas, for the purposes of an orphans'
home and industrial school, and that
under the authority of the Sovereign
Grand lodge cited, the Grand lodge of
Kansas, has full power to levy such per

necessary, to establish and carry on the

Four "Thousand Workmen Will Strike on
May First.
Chicago, April 23. The Times says:
The 4,000 employes of the Pullman Pal
ace Car company at Pullman will declare
a strike May 1.
The trouble has been brewing ever
since the reduction in the men's wages
ordered last year.
No Btrike was declared when the re
duction was made, because the men were
only imperfectly organized and no move
ment could have been made effective.
During the last six weeks, however, ac
tive efforts have been made by the Pull
man employes themselves and by the
labor leaders of Chicago to bring all of
them into the fold of the building trades'
council. This has practically been done,
so that a general strike when ordered
will now be effective.

Judge Caldwell was born in what is
now West Virginia in 1832. When he
was a child 4 years of age, his parents
moved westward in a section of the state
of Iowa, which wns then a part cf the
territory of Wisconsin. His boyhood
was chiefly given over to the most ar
duous kind cf toiL What books ho was
ablo to secure were eagerly devoured,
and at the age of 1 7 he began the study
of law in an office at Keosauqua, Ia.
Three years later ho was admitted to
practice, and by the time he was 24 he
was prosecuting attorney cf hi3 district.
He then went to the state legislature,
and during two sessions was chairman
of the house judiciary committee.
The civil war breaking out, he threw
aside everything to enter the service and
was enrolled as major of the Third Io
wa cavalry. Subsequently he became
colonel of the regiment, succeeding Gen
eral Bussey, assistant secretary of the
interior during Mr. Harrison's adminis

President Lincoln taken hira from the
ranks to serve as the first district judge
of Arkansas.
This appointment was made in 1864,
and Judge Caldwell retained the office
until March, 1890, when he succeeded
David J. Brewer of Kansas as circuit
judge. As presiding officer of the fed
eral court in Arkansas he made his name
as a jurist. His court was the first to
pass upon the many questions arising
out of the :vil war, and the justness
and evenness of his decisions are shown
in the fact that not one of his opinions
carried to the United States supreme
court was overruled.
