On account of extensive alterations which are to be

whole story. There will be lots of dust and dirt, so

don't care, so we want to get rid of all we can to save
it from dust, mortar aud what not There is nothing
else to do. If we didn't reduce prices all around we'd
have to keep a great many things through the build

with the bill providing tor the construction of

My Dear Sir: I return the testimonials
which you sent me, accompanied by a letter
asking me for an appointment to an office at
my (y6ur) disposal. I think to be frank with
you is a kindness. I have no office at my dis

out one for you. There are a few things more
important to the people of this country than
furnishing offices to applicants, however
worthy, and some of those thiugs pertain under

HIS PURSUIT OF THE DETROIT HEIRESS?LOVE
LETTERS AND POLITICAL SPEECHES.
A Detroit special to the New York World says:
"Details of Senator Jones' prolonged attentions
to Miss Palms are slowly coming to light. It is
now known that be met that lady but twice,
both occasions being wnen he was here two years
ago. He seems to have become infatuated at
first sight, and If he has for one moment since
renounced his intention of securing her hand
in marriage no one but himsell is aware of it.
A week after the first meeting he called on the
young lady, proposed marriage and was sum
marily rejected. However, ne was not dis
mayed by her refusal and continued to prose
cute his suit by letter. After he left the city
the young lady was fairly inundated with love
letters and received from Washington nearly a
ton of the Senator's speeches delivered during
his twelve years in the Senate.
Earlv last June the Senator revisited Detroit
to again prosecute hissult in person. He called
constantly at the house, but never found Miss
Palms at home to him. His importunities con
ilued with relentless perseverance, even going
to the length of almost forcibly entering her
house and stating that he would not leave until
he had seen her. Soon after that occurrence
Mr. Palms, meeting Senator Joueson the street,
indignantly torbade him ever entering his
house again. After the Senator's first visit to
Detroit he is reported to have announced that
he was engaged to Miss Palms. This reaching
the ears of the priest in charge ol the Roman
Catholic church Miss Palms attended, he one
day congratulated her. She resented the con
gratulations, saying that Senator Jones had
proposed to her, and that she had declined the
The priest by letter rebuked Senator Jones,
whom be accused of spreading the report. Con
siderable acrimonious correspondence followed
subsequently, involving still another priest, and
later Mr. Jones appealed to the Right Rev.
Bishop Borgess. The bishop was appalled, and
his answer 10 the Senator was one of the most
scorching replies ever peuned. It is now as
serted that Mr. Jones says his struggle Is with
the church, which be accuses of seeking to pre
vent the marriage and to secure Miss Palm's
great wealth. He looks upon himself as a per
secuted man. Miss Palms is said to be greatly
mortified by the whole aflbir."

that as the subject matter had been dealt

had come from that committee, the committee
on privileges and elections did not think it
worth while to deal with the question. The
committee was discharged from its considera

to be takeu up, if desired, when the report of the
judiciary committee shall be taken up.

The penalty for violating those provisions pro
posed by Mr. Plumb to be a fine not to exceed

THE EADS SHIP RAILWAY BILL.
Mr. Beach (N. Y.), rising, as be stated, to a
question of privilege, sent to the clerk's desk
to have resd an article in the New York Times
ot Friday last relative to the Eads ship railroad
^Before the reading had been completed Mr.
Reagan (Tex.) suggested that no question of
privilege was presented.
Mr. Beach said that if the gentleman had
allowed the reading to be concluded he would
have tound that the charge was made that
Captain Eads had been on the floor of the
House during Its session. Unfortunately, he
said, that charge was true. He knew of his own
knowledge that it was true. He had no personal
acquaintance with Captain Eads, but he knew
him by sight, and he bad seen him on the floor
during the sessions of the House earnestly en
gaged in conversation with members. Not only
had Captain Eads abused the privilege ot the
floor, but they had been abused by many others.
This fact was so well known that he did not
deem it necessary to ask for a committee of in
vestigation. He, however, offered a resolution
directing the doorkeeper to strictly enforce rule
34 (regulating admission to the floori.
Tne Speaker. That is the duty or the door
keeper under the rules of the House.
Mr. Reagan inquired when Mr. Beach had
seen Captain Eads on the floor.
Mr. Beach replied that he had seen him within
the last ten days.
Mr. Reagan. I never saw him and I have no
idea he ever was here.
Mr. Clardy and Mr. Heard (Mo.) stated that
Captain Eads had been confined to his house
lor some days on account of sickness.
Mr. Reagan said that the statement in the
Times' article that the bill guaranteed an an
nual profit of $'2,500,000 to the railroad was
incorrect. The bill guaranteed not one cent of
profit. He supposed that the purpose was to
raise a scandal aud create a public sentiment
against the bill before it had been considered
by the House. He did not believe that Capt,
E&ds had been on the floor of the House during

of veracity between the gentleman and hlmselC
He had seen Captain Eads on the floor within

The Search for the Amethyst.
OFFICIAL REPORT OF CAIT. HOOPER, OF THE
Capt. Hooper, of the revenue cutter Bush,
which recently made an unsuccessful search
lor the crew of the missing whaler Amethyst,
has made an official report from San Francisco
to the Treasury department, in which he say s
that the search was extended east and west to
include the islands in the vicinity of all the
passes through which a vessel might sail in
coming from Bohring sea into the Pacific ocean,
and as far north as the ice would permit. Capt.
Hooper gives it as bis opinion that if the Ame
thyst met with disaster al ter leaving the Arctic
ocean it occuried in the Pacific ocean, where
she may have louudered in one ot the
terrific gales that are sometimes
encountered a few degrees south ot the Aleu
tian islands. If the Amethyst was wrecked on
St. Matthew's or St. I^awrence islands, or in the
Behring's Straits or Arctic ocean, the survivors,
if there are any, cannot be reached ov a vessel
until the ice breaks up in the spring. The Rush
experienced heavy gales and snow squalls
with the temperature at times twenty-five de
grees below freezing j>oint, and ice accumulated
on the vessel in large quantities. Capt. H<?oper
speaks in the highest terms of the conduct of

The 52d anniversary ol the Congressional
Temperance society was held yesterday at the

J. W. Cbickering and an address of welcome
from Rev. Dr. Butler, formerly chaplain ot the
House, Hon. Robert B. Vance, of North Caro

the secretary, Rev. Dr. John W. Chickering,
who presented liis annual report. This report
and a stirring letter from Hon. W#T. Price, of
Wisconsin, were read by Dr. Chickerinp's son.
The report of the secretary nia^e a statement
concerning the aims ot this and other legislar
tlve temperance societies. Not merely to pro
mote wise legislation by way ot removing the
shameful amount of legalized temptation
which imperils our homes and our country?as
Mr. Gladstone has said of Great Britain?but
by way ot example and appeal against what the
late Bishop Potter called "the drinking usages

the world of fashion, ot business or of politics,
to send out from their high places the light of a
safe aud pure exumpie, iu audition to parental
and public instruction, concerning the use of
alcoholic poisons, and the next generation will
be largely free from tyranny ot this degrading
vice. The paper alluded to recent occurrences
within the writer's observation?disclosures of
domestic sorrow which, if heard in that assem
bly, would move all hearts, make each one for
the moment a "teni perance fanatic," and
prompt from many of the high places in social

ing of the Garibaldi Monument society at Mr.

tions were adopted expressing indignation
against the charges of "one Celso Caesar"
Moreno against his fellow-countrymen here
and elsewhere, declaring "that, though we
have for many years been residents ol this city,
we have never known a 'padrone' to exist
among us, neither any one who traffics in
human flesh, Italian or otherwise, since the
emancipation ol the negro," pronouncing the
charge that many distinguished Italians of the
United States, and particularly the president
ol the society, Dr. T. S. Verdi, connive at or
abet in the importation of Italian pauper labor
as a falsehood, ana expressing regret at seeing
"the Knights of Labor giving countenance to
this wicked system of defamation by receiving
and publishing C. C. Moreno's unfounded
charges against the character ot men of the
highest honor and of the greatest Integrity."

came a second time and the officer* advanced
they turned and ran across the prairies. The
dispersal of the crowd restored confidence lo
minds of wavering ones who had been pre

hurriedly lor the works. In five minutes there
were, according to Mr. MoCormlck's count, 35U
men at work in the various departments. Sup

Milwaukee, March 1.?The labor meeting
conducted by the Tanners and Curriers' union
in this city last evening nearly ter
minated in a serious row. When Rob
ert schilling, the labor agitator and
and Knights of Labor organizer w as asked to
speak, ne consented to do so upon the condition
that the followers of the red fllag should Ik?
allowedxio voice. He had no sooner concluded
his address, however, than a local leader of the |
anarchists sought to take the platform and
speak to the men, who packed the hall toils
entire capacity. A scene of lumult ensued.
The few socialists Insisted that the men should
be heard while the greater number present
were equally as vehement iu their cries,
"Throw them out!" To add to the confusion
hundreds engaged in the discussion at the
same time, shouting at the top of their voices,
and several of the more outspoken socialists
were picked up bodily and hustled to the open
air. Securing quiet for an instant the presiding
officer declared the meetiug adjourned and
called upon the members to retire. Repre
sentative Knights of Labor are supported by
all members of the order In the sentiment that
anarchists are not wanted among them aud
they are determined that at tuture meetings
the anarchists shall not be tolerated.

London, March 1.?A snow storm prevails
throughout Great Britain. In many places the
snow has drifted In great piles on the railroad
tracks, seriously impeding traffic. The suffer
ings or the poor are greatly increased by the
storm. . ...
During the heavv snow storm which pre

CONFESSING HIS GUILT.
A Missouri Bigamist Tell* How He
Murdered His Wife.
Chicago, March 1.?A special from Spring
field, Mo., says: Cora Lee and Mrs. Malloy were
arrested yesterday on warrants charging them
with complicity in the murder of Mrs. Graham.
When arrested they broke down, bursting into
tears. They were not committed to Jail. Gra
ham was busily engaged in jail writing uutil
late into the night. The document on which
he was engaged proved to be a complete confes
sion of the murder of his wife. He says the
confession is made in order to save innocent
persons and to safe further expense to the
county. For himself he says be has no excuse
or apology to offer. He then exonerates Mrs.
Malloy and Cora Lee lrom all complicity in or
knowledge of the crime. He says he told them
that he had never been remarried to his first
wife after she ootained a divorce lrom him, and
that they had implicit confidence in him and
believed that there was no Impediment to the
marriage. His first wife wrote him lrom Fort
Wayne, saying that she kuew ot his second
marriage and was coming to Springfield.
He wrote In reply, denying it and try
ing to persuade her not to come. She started
for this place. He met her, however, but
she would uot listen to him, however, and
started for this place. He met her In St. Ixiuis
and again used every endeavor to have her
leave him, but to no purpose, aud she came on
to Springfield with him and the children. At
the depot here he again tried to induce her U>
go to Kansas City, but to no purpose. I- inally,
they left the children at a restaurant and start
ed to walk to the farm, five miles distant, ar
riving there about 1:20 In tbe morning. At tne
farm gate Graham entreated his wile to not
ruin him by going to the boose, but she said
she would go there and clear things out. He
says he was whittling a stick with a pen-knife,
and she had a small stick in her hand. Angry
words passed and she struck at him with the
limb. He threw up his hand to ward ofl the
blow and tbe knife struck her in the neck. She
screamed that he had killed her, and he then
caught hold of her and threw her from him.
Stooping over he saw blood spurting from her
neck, and says he knew then it was all over
with him. So he shoved tbe knife Into the
wound the full length and finished her. He
then undressed tbe body and carried it to the
welL where he threw it in and dropped the
clothing in after It. He says no one but him
self had any knowledge ol the deed, and speaks
in endearing terms of Cora Lee, bis second wife.
To her he leaves the care of his children. His
past life, he says, has been a blank, and bis
Kituie but a leap in the daft. Intense excite
ment pre vallsTand it Is thought that Graham
will be lynched.
