TOIL AND TROUBLE. Congress Thinks it is In Hot Water. Always. Washington, April 24. Special AU is serene, and the new rule for quorum counting works well, especially when it is not needed. In fact, the chief beauty of the rule seems to be that it is seldom need ed. But the majority can go on and easily finish all needed legislation early in June, Mr. Holman says, and it is to be hoped that this will 6ervo as an effective hint to the senate. We are, however, no sooner out of one trouble than wo are into another, for Cox ey's army is on the way, as are several other detachments, and that which was at first a joke has gradually become a matter of serious concern. Conprrcssmen paid lit tle or no attention to the movement except to laugh at it until the so called army had got across the Alleghanies and had taken to the canal. When it was added that 1,200 "industrials" had been railroaded from Utah to Iowa, that 300 more were on their way from St. Louis, 1,000 from the southwest and scattered bodies from other places sufficient to bring the whole num ber up to 5,000 and all converging on Washington, discussion took a more seri ous turn. The District commissioners took pains to publish that the police and Dis trict militia were in splendid shape; that the regular army artillery here could be had on call and large detachments could be brought at short notice from Baltimore and Fort Monroe. It was only a coinci dence that the District veterans of 1861 those who volunteered to protect public property against a supposedly intended dash of the secessionists held their an nual reunion about the same time, but it comforted many by recalling to their minds that there are 2,000 or 3,000 veter ans of the civil war in and near this city, and that the resident population could turn out soma 15,000 ablebodied men. Still most people scarcely knew whether to laugh at all this or to get alarmed, and the opinions of congressmen were sought with some anxiety. A Serious Matter. In answer to many questions General Grosvenor said: "Of course there could not be anything lika thone uprisings in Paris, Vienna or in London, but still the thing is serious enough. You will notice that Coxey only promises to provide for his army till it gets here; then his responsi bility ceases, and the hungry, disorderly crowd must look out for itself. At first view it does look strange, as you say, that everybody along the route of the advanc ing columns should be feeding those fel lows and helping them along, but it is pure selfishness and not because they sympa thize with such gangs. Take those so called far west industrials, ' for instance. California and Nevada were glad to get rid of them and would not allow them to come back, and so Utah had to send them on, and the same with Wyoming and Nebras ka. The railroads could not kick, for ev crjijody is down on them, and they have the biggest strike in their history on their hands. If they had turned those fellows adrift in the Wyoming desert, as suggest ed, why, the gang would have robbed every ranch along the route, eaten up all the pro visions and destroyed the railroads besides. Every official wanted to get them out of his bailiwick as soon as possible, and here we shall simply have to feed them awhile and then ship them away, for they are too many for the jails to hold." . So far Gen eral Grosvcnor's opinion is substantially that of most members, but many think if the invaders are not dealt with severely it will establish a bad precedent, encourag ing the discontented to march on Wash ington. Active Silver Men. The silver men have broken out in a new place, and their latest idea is to have sil ver as our national money, but to recog nize gold as the money of the w-vld that is, reserve it entirely for foreignexchango and payment at the custom houses, so far as government is compelled to have gold for foreign uses. One of the most conser vative of this class is Governor George C. Pendleton, representing the Seventh Texas district, who says: 14 The adoption of the gold standard ha9 worked untold injury to the producers of the world by measuring an increased vol ume of products with a diminishing vol ume of money, thus causing a steady de cline in prices. Nor is it possible to set any limit to this decline, for the use of gold in the arts and ornaments is gaining so rap idly upon the production that in a few years there will be no addition whatever to the volume for money, not even enough to sup ply waste. Now, observe that products raised and consumed entirely in the Unit ed States, such as hay, small fruits and vegetables, butter, eggs and the like, have not declined in price because we have been continually adding to our volume of paper money and to our silvertintil the Sherman law was repealed. It is in everything of which we sell the surplus abroad in a gold market that prices have so fear fully declined. There is, however, a sym pathy in prices which will soon cause aU thoso things for which we have a home market to decline unless some plan is de vised by congress to continue the increase of money volume. This gives us the prop er hint as to what ought to be done. Inequality of Prices. "Of course our legislation can only re motely affect prices in other countries, and every effort should be exhausted by our government to secure their co-operation in the movement to apply a remedy. In the meantime legislation should be directed to ward preventing conditions from getting any worse and to battering them as soon as possible. Everybody knows by this time that it is the surplus of our corn, wheat, cotton and so forth sold abroad which fixes the price of all that is sold at home, no matter how small that surplus may be, and this is the cause of the strange in equality in prices now prevailing. The de cline has. however, begun to take effect on everything, and the manufacturers are in jured because the farmers are not able to buy. It is no exaggeration to say that something must be done soon. On the gold basis I see no reason why the decline should not go on for many years, but I do not be lieve the people would stand it. There is a general discontent, and it will increase rapidly when the home products decline in sympathy with export products, as they surely will unless some radical relief is af- . forded. The people will ere long demand some action." These views are chiefly of interest as com ing from a very conservative gentleman, who is notably cautious in expressing his views, but in substance they are the same as those expressed by the more radical sil-verites. LAST DAY OF THE TARIFF. No More Speeches on It as a Whole After Today. Washington, April 23. After the morning hour had passed, the tariff bill was laid before the senate and Senator Mills, (of Texas,) was recognized. There was a good attendance in the galleries and a number . of representatives from the other house were present, this being the last day of the debate on the bill as a whole. Senator Mills opened by Baying that the bill did not entirely meet his ap proval. Bat legislation was necessary as a matter of compromise. He might offer some amendments. But if they were rejected he should vote for the bill. - It was a parliamentary measure and every Democrat should sink his own prefer, ences thus far. He would, he said, have levied a duty on coffee, tea and sugar. The Democratic theory was that the government should insure to every mau the enjoyment of every natural right. He should have put on the free list all articles that require manufacture for consumption. If that were not suffi cient, he should have put a tax on ac cumulated wealth. All obstacles in the way of employment of labor should be siricken down. The policy of protection, he argued, had failed to build up a home market for agriculture. IN FOUR HORSE WAGONS. Bow the Ohio'' Populists Are Going: to Their State Convention. ' Canton, O., April 24. The success of the Coxey, Kelly, and. other similar movements in attracting public attention has stimulated Populist genius in Can ton, and a new movement is to be spruug in Ohio. Allen Cook, lawyer and Popu list, is out with a call for recruits for a march "On to Columbus." His scheme, as set forth in his call, provides that the state Populist convention shall be held in Columbus about the middle of August, and that all delegates shall go the con vention in four-horse wagons'draped in flags and floating banners inscribed with Populist doctrine. The state is ' to be divided into eight divisions with eight routes toward which all delegates in the divisions shall gravi tate. The northern division will com mence at Sandusky. All delegates along the route will join in the march as the caravan comes on, and picnics and speech making will be held all along the line. The second division will start at Bryan, Williams county. The third division will start in Mercer county, the fourth at Cincinnati, the fifth at Portsmouth, sixth at Marietta, seventh at Bridgeport, and the eighth in Ashtabula county. The delegations will all start at once. It is expected the people will be so wrought up that all will be converted to Populist doctrines. Mr. Cook is sure Gen. Cox-y and Marshal Browne, who will be home by that time, will be In for. the march, and he has high hopes along this line. WAITK WANTS REVENGE. Trying t .

Arrested for Attempting; to Rob Missouri Pacific Depot They Protest Innoeenee. An ineffectual attempt was made last night to blow open the safe in the Mis souri Pacific freight depot near the junction of that road with the Santa Fe in the southeastern part of the city. Two of the men were captured. m Last night shortly before 12 o'clock Officer Capron whose beat ia in that part of the city started for the Santa Fe depot to meet the midnight trains. He heard a noise in the depot and as he neared the place a man who was sitting on the platform jumped down and ran around the depot. Capron called to the man to halt but' he didn't stop and - another man standing near a corner of the depot joined the first and they ran south toward the Santa Fe tracks. When Capron ran around the depot . two more men ran out of the door and also started south, and as he got closer to the building a man climbed out of a win dow and joined his pals. Capron reached for his revolver, but it caught on his coat and fell to the ground. He picked it up and ran to the Santa Fe tracks, down which the men were now running. They paid no attention to the com mands of the officer to halt, but replied with a shot from a revolver- He then stopped, took deliberate aim and fired. He says that he saw one man reel as :. if hit, and two of his companions caught him on either side and hurried on.Capron shot twice more but thinks he hit no one. The men fired twelve or fifteen shots at the officers and one bullet grazed his leg be tween the knee and foot, He then gave up the chase. The patrol wagon was sent toward Pauline with the sheriff and a detail of police. Officers Dagg and Capron got on the 12 o'clock freight and when the train reached the Shunganunga two men boarded it. They were arrested just be fore the train reached Pauline and were brought back in the wagon. A lot of tools that were probably stolen from a blacksmith shop were found in the depot and an ordinary blacksmith's drill was used on the safe. There were but a few dollars in the safe. The men gave their names as Frank Herkert and Frank Palmer. They were taken before Justice Grover today, and bound over for hearing in the sum of $500 each until 2 p.m. Thursday. Herket and Palmer were seen by a Journal reporter today, in their calls at the county jail. Their looks are against them, but hey protest their innocence. Both men were willing to talk. Herket said: "I was not near the Missouri Pa cific freight yards, and I never met Palmer until last night. We got on the freight train together about Eighth street, and when we got to Pauline the officers arrested me. My home is in Missouri "and I came to Topeka a month ago. I went to Omaha and came back yesterday with a friend named Charley Martin. My father ia dead; he used to be a shoemaker by trade." Palmer said: "I struck town Sunday morning and slept the first night at the cityprison. lama painter by trade and yes terday I went to every paint shop in town trying to find a job. I was trying to get to Eldorado where I have friends. I've got lung trouble and I thought the cli mate down there might help me. I don't know a thing about the charge against us, except what I saw in the paper. I didn't even hear the shots. I got on the train before it got out of the Santa Fe yards, and I never met Herket until that minute-" TROUBLE AT GREYT0WN. American Property Said to Have Been Seized But Report NoL Believed. New Yoke, April 24. Statements were published today to the effect that the Nicaraguan government had seized all the property of the Nicaraguan canal company at Greytown on a judgment for an alleged debt and bought in by Spaniards for $72,000. At the offices of the company in this city today it was stated that in order to protect the Nicaraguan mail steam navigation and trading company for a number of credit ors, some friendly judgments were ob tained and are held by frienda of the company. There is no truth therefore, according to the company in the report that the Nicaraguan canal company's property was seized. A dispatch from Washington says: The state department has had no recent advice from Bluefields, so it is not possi ble for the officials to affirm or deny the truth of the report that the Nicaraguan canal company's captured a vessel bear ing the American flag, landed troops at Bluefields and done other sensational things.

Evangelist Romig: at Lawrence Talks Abont Open Joints, But When Under Oath Can't Name One. OTHER STATE NEWS. Branch of Coxey's Army Organ izing at Salina. Lawrence, April 24. Evangelist "Romig who has been conducting revival meetings here for some time has 'been given a chance to prove the faith that was in him but without very satisfactory results. At his Sunday revival meeting Mr. Romig dwelt on' the joint question with much ardor, stating that there were about twenty of them running here and that the officers were derelict in their duty. He mentioned one case that had been compromised by the defendant pleading guilty to a single count and intimated that the county attorney had been unduly influenced. When County Attorney Bishop heard of it he promptly subpoenaed Mr. Mr. Romig, under the law providing that county attorneys may take evidence in preparing liquor cases. Mr. Romig, being put on oath and sharply examined by Mr. Bishop, backed down on his statements and admitted that he did not know of a single place in Lawrence where liquor is sold. He had never seen one drink or buy liquor and he knew of no one who was violating the law. Hia remarks had been based upon rumor. The witness objected to answering some of the questions, but he waa given to understand that it waa contempt of court not to do so. . DROWNED IN THE MISSOURI.

He saw Jesse's hat lying on some logs that had been made fast to the bank. The dog was running up and down near the edge of the water making a pitiful noise. The father was aroused and quick ly a search was made for the missing boy, but all to no purpose. ' THEY STRUCK. OIL. Crude Petroleum Unexpectedly Discov ered at Cottonwood Falls. Emporia, April 24.
