Senator Faulk ner, from the committee on territories, today reported the bill for the admis sion of Utah. Hunting Corruption. In view of a statement made in the New York Sun that certain senators had been bribed to vote against the pending tariff bill and the statement published in the Philadelphia Press that the sugar schedule had been made as it stands in consideration of a large sum of money paid into the Democratic campaign fund by the sugar trust, a resolution was paesedin the senate that a committee of five senators be ap pointed to investigate these charges and report to the senate as soon as the investigation is complete. The tariff bill was then taken np and debated at length. The Agricultural Appropriation Bill. Washington, May 17. Among the bills favorably reported in the house to day was one by Mr. Checkering of New York from the committee on railways and canals, to inquire into the feas ibility of constructing a ship canal from the Hudson river to the Great Lakes. After the call of the committees the house went into a committee of the whole to consider the agricultural ap propriation bill. Representative Herrman of Oregon offered an amendment raising the ap propriation for irrigation investigation from $800 to $25,000. The discussion of the paragraph dealing with the investi gation of the irrigation matter led to a serious difference of opinion. Members from Texas, California and the arid re gions of the west and southwest, where the subject of irrigation is a burning question, demanded one and two hours to discuss the paragraph and its amend ments, while Mr. Hatch was willing to concede only twenty minutes. Mr. Hatch's motion to close the de bate in twenty minutes was amended by Mr. Cannon of Illinois, so as to make it one hour. When the house di vided on a vote of 61 to 77 Mr. Cannon made a point of no quorum. Then followed a period of filibustering by Mr. Cannon. It resulted in fixing the limit of debate at thirty minutes. At 6 p. m. the consideration of the bill was concluded and the committee of the whole having risen the bill was favorably reported to the house and the previous question being ordered the bill was passed. At o o'clock the house ad journed. AN ICE BOMBARDMENT. Cleveland Visited By a Terrific Hall- storm. Cleveland, O., May 17.

The storm was accompanied by heavy rain and thunder and lightning in which many of the hail stones were as large as hen's eggs and were driven before a heavy wind. Thousands of windows were broken, green houses were wrecked and several run aways resulted from horses trying to escape the bombardment of ice. The damage will amount to several thousand dollars. COULDN'T AGREE. The Mining Strike Not to Be Im mediately Settled. Cleveland, O., May 17. When the coal convention met today the miners and operators were as far as ever apart. There is no prospect of an agreement. Contracts are taken by Pittsburg opera tors for furnishing fuel for the railroads and lake vessels at $1.90 per ton against $2.25 to $2.50 last year.

It appears that in removing the penitentiary com missioners, Reynolds, Chamberlain and Boettcber, Governor Waite has inau gurated another political war. Com nvesioner Reynolds today said the understanding between the members was that they would take all legal means to defeat the governor's aim, thai they considered the removal unjust, and will not give up until the highest court has decided against them. Governor Waite has not yet appointed the new board, but when he does, it will be composed of men who will re move the penitentiary warden, McLis ter, and give the governor an oppor tunity to appoint his son-in-law, Dan Bruce, to that office.

By order of the committee. SUING FOR CURIOSITY. The Utter and Complete Disappear ance of a Stallion and Jackass Justice Johnstone's emporium of liti gation will be the placeof the settlement of a principle this afternoon. The property involved Eeems to have van ished long ago and the parties to the suit are only impelled by a curiosity to learn how they stand with relation to each other. j The case is that of Mike McGehan vs. Robert Linvilie, nominally to recover possession of a black jackass which the plaintiff confided to the defendant some years ago. It appears from the brief of the plaintiff that the jackass was installed at a ranch near town. The title to the animal was supposed to rest in Linvilie. On Mr. McGehan's demand for the jackass or his equivalent in gold coin the defendant gave the plaintiff a verbal order for him on the owner of theranch. This requisition was riot honored and Mr. McUehan atterwaru obtained a written order but on its presentation he learned that the jackaBS had gone to the mountains. That is, he had been moved with a lot of other stock and his location since has been an impene trable mystery. That'a the plaintiffs case and the allegations therein made are not denied but the defendant brings in a counter claim for the return of a stallion. This animal suffering from a disease sus pected to be incurable was put under the treatment of Mr. McGehan who is skilled in diseases of horses. That gentleman was invested with broad dis cretionary powers, embracing those of the veterinary surgeon and the horBe trader. He was authorized to cure the stallion if he could and afterward sell him or exchange him for whetstones, railroad stock or any other valuable commodity upon which cash could be reuuz.eu. The animal was partiallv cured and traded by Mr. McGehan for a mare and colt. This mare and colt were traded for another mare and colt, to which some Indians came in and proved and were given possession. The jackass and the stallion were now in the sums boat, and the boat was lost. Tbev had utterly vanished, and as to Messrs. McGehan and Linvilie, were as it they had never been ; contrary to nature they were ntterly annihilated. There is ab solutely nothing to show for them but two rankling dispositions which have broken out into a law suit. Mr. Linvilie has retained the serv ices ot Judge Buck. Mr. McGehan will be represented bv himself. THE CLOSING DAY. Williams Gets the Next Grand Lodge K. of P. The grand lodge Knights of Pythias yeBterday completed all its business and adjourned.
