Deba and John M. Egan, Leaden of the Two gldea In the Great Ball- road Strike,, Appear at Seattle, Wash. WAsrastdTOJr, March 20. Commis sioner of Pensions Lochren estimates that there will not be any decrease In the appropriations for pensions during the next three years. The amount ap propriated for the fiscal year 1800 in round numbers is 9140,000,000, while for the present year the amount was 8150,000,000. The reason for the absence of any perceptible decrease is that the falling; off, owing to death and other causes, is about coun terbalanced by the first payments in pensions allowed. As cases are allowed from time to time, there are large first payments, sometimes for arrears, and always dated from the time the appli cation was filed. The decreases .. in some classes of claims are quite great, as in the pensions for the war of 1812, which have decreased about 50 per cent, in the past year. After three years, when it is expected the majority of the claims will be ad judicated, and there will be few. re maining first payments, Commissioner Lochren expects there will be a rapid fallin? off of pensions, as the veterans have now reached the ago when it ia to bo expected. Trouble Between Two Foea. Seattle; Wash., March 20. The simultaneous appearance in this city of E. V. Debs, of the American Rail way union, and John M. E?an, ex presitlent of the General Managers' as sociation, which conducted the great railroad strike last summer, has re sulted in trouble. In, an interview Ejan spolte severely of Debs, charging him with the responsibility for the loss of employment by hundreds of competent men. lie reflected severe ly upoa . the strike raetnods. After reading this interview Mr. Deba addressed a mass meeting in Seattle, at which ho scored Egan in a most savage manner, openly accusing him of dishonesty. Ho asserted that E.'an would never meet in private or public and discuss "who were the con spirators," for he (Egan) know who they were and what would be the re sult. The prospects promise a savage controversy between the two. A GEORGIA CYCLONE. Considerable Damage Done at Ausnata, but Not a Single Life Lost. Augusta, Ca., March 20. At 9 o'clock this morning a tornado visited this city. The first house struck was hurled across McKinnie street and thrown against the house on the opposite side. Its sole occupant, a colored woman, was badly hurt. Noth ing but the floor of the house was left In the next house demolished a negro woman and five children were buried under the wreck, but after an hour's hard work were extricated alive, though some of them were badly bruised. In the central southern portion of the city a dozen houses wore wrecked and all along the path of the storm trees, fences ana outoullorings were leveled. A small houso was hurled through the roof and into one of the big rooms of the Miller flour mills. The Central railroad and roundhouse and paint shops were badly damaged and one engine smashed under tho dobris. It is extraordinary that no lives were lost and that few people were hurt. Tho entiro police and fire force's, reinforced by a large number of citizens, are at work on the ruined houses and those who are hurt are be ing cared for by the people.

The farm ers of the golden belt wheat region of central Kansas, including a dozen counties of the northern central sec tion of the state, famed for their wheat production, are becoming alarmed at the condition of the wheat plant, which is not showing the anticipated recuperation from the severe winter. In such portions aa had heavy local showers last October, p icking the soil around the roots of the plant, it les sened the injury both from drought and high winds during the winter. But these rains affected only a com paratively small portion of the wheat section, and in those parts not reached the winter has ' been unusually severe on it. Not only has the hard freezing affected it, but there have been high winds which blew the soil from the roots. Farmers in the southeast of this county, a section where wheat has seldom been known to fail, say that it does not seem that there can be more than half a crop. T.ain is needed very bad in central Kansas, and lots of it, to bring the who:it out in good shape. It will take exceptionally favorable weather to make a full crop. RECEIVERS NOT NKCESSARY. The Witlter A. Wood Directors Expect to Rhaiiiiio Control llerorn Long. Sf. l'AUL, Minn., March 20. At a meeting of the directors of the Walter A. Wood harvester works, to-day, the action of the court in appointing the receivers was ratilliid and arrange ments made to turn over all tho prop erty at tho earliest possible date. It was then decided to take step3 at once looking toward a settlement with the adverse creditors. Of those there are but two or three, chief amon? which is the Bank of the Republic, of Chicago. A3 it is not expected that tho other creditors will make trouble, the two or three can be easily disposed of on a basis satisfactory to the rest The claims of these creditors are not bo large that their payment will impair the capital of the company. General Manager MacUowan, who is one of the receivers, says there will be no interruption of work at the plant, but all employes will be kept busy. He states that as the company has S3 of assets for every 81 of liabilities, he can see no reason why the receivership should not terminate within ninety days. A SMALL RIOT. Citizens of Two Rival Iowa Towna Meet and Start a Fight. Auha, la., March 20. There was a serious riot at ltathbun, a mining? town south of here. A bitter feud exists be tween Darby and Rathbun, and recent ly it culminated in a fight, in which not less than a dozen persons were se riously injured. The tight was precip itated by some one hurling a rock into the crowd, and soon there were rocks, bricks and missiles of all kinds flying in every direction, and men were knocked senseless and maimed on both sides. Peace officers of the county were present, but were unable to quell tho riot, on account of tho numbers en gaged in.it The fight occurred on tho hillside in Rathbun, near John War ing's store, and, he alleges, it was pre cipitated by the miners from Darby, who had been quarrelsome all day, aud 1 seemed to be spoiling for a fight It 1 t - M .1 i L n i f!lA al if1i-il nihil timn ! is feared that Mike McCord, who was hit on the head with a rock, cannot re cover.

His Own PEELS OFF THE SKIN And Applies the Knout to the Quivering Flesh. Spares Neither Friend Nor Foe in His Ire. BEGGEKS LANGUAGE. Rotten, Corrupt, Depraved, Worthless Legislature; Is What He Calls Our Kansas "Redeemers." Topoka State Journal. Sol Miller, the veteran editor of the Troy Chief, committed something of a sensation when he returned his com mission aa a member of the state board of pardons f Governor Mu rill with 1 1) links; but he has created a still greater commotion within the ranks of the Kcpubliean party by a torn column castigation of the late k'Kirilature and the present administration, in tins week's edition of his paper. In this four column editorial he says, under the beading "A ltccord lo be Ashamed Of:" "The legislature postponed its most creditable act until the very lust that was the adjoiirnuimt. After having condemned the late .Democratic con - ureea and the calamity legislature, we cannot sav "well done" of a body that discounted them both in worthlessness and extravagance, simply because it was Republican. Therefore, we are compelled to say that the lute legis lature of Kansas was the mi st reck less.' the most worthless, tbe most Hcacdulous of any body that ever sat in Kansas. We would add the most corrupt, but we have no proor of it except appear ances. How the Republican party can go before the people and ask for con tinued confidence on tbe record of that legislature, we cannot imagine. It was thought that defeat and exclusion from power for two years would have been a lesson, and that when they re turned to power they would usa extra exertions to commend themselves to the people: but Instead, they seem to have become ravenous by their en forced absence from the fodder rack and to Lave gone in to gorge them selves, regardless of all else. LIKE A HEUDOF TEXAS STEERS. ''The legislature passed a few com mendable laws aa what one ever failed to do so? There were also a few able level headed members of tbe bouse who occasionally manaied to bold that body steady. Cut as a whole, it was a herd of Texas steers without any conception of the duties of law makers, bent upon running things wide open "Their first stampet-'e was in tbe sel ection of a United States senator.

Meyer, csshier, of the above named bank, do sol emnly swear that the above statement is true to the best of my knowledge and belief. Subscribed and sworn to before me this 8th day of March, i8gs- Iney had discovered, or heard, er thought they smelted boodle in one of the camps, aud they rusi.ed to that camp with a force that threatened to carry everything before them. It was only by means of tee sharpest kind of strategy that they did not saddle a scandal upon the state, to begin iih. r.7ubUcau, state platform promised the people an honest and economical administration of the state government. "The appropriations (of the legisla ture) aggregate over three aud a quar ter millions of dollars. And then it U boasted that tbe tax levy is not in creased, but remains as it was before, when things were prosperous.and crops good. COWARDLY CONrROMISK. "One of the very first acts or the leg islature was the appointment of a swarm of clerks and other subordinate officers four times us many as were nec essary at any time, tnd placing them upon tbe pay roll for the entire session and long before the services of any of tbem were needed. "There was a great ado made ab mt abolishing useless offices; but tl 8 re sult was. that just one office was abol ished that of state veterinarian, which many persons insists was really a necessary office. "On tbe other hand, not less than twenty two new salaried or feed offices were created, that the people muBt pay for. "An appellate court was created, with six judges, each judge wiMi a clerk and a stenographer, making eighteen offices right then. There is no dispute that the snpieme court is over-crowded and behind with the work; but this ap pellate court is but a temporary make shift. MOST SCANDALOUS PART. "But the most scandalous part of it was the terms upon which the court was created. The senate would not permit the passage of the bill without a provision that at least two of the judges should be uiembers of the calamity party, and one democrat. Tbe houso meekly yielded to the cheeky demand. Rut after the pass age of the bill, it was discovered, to the general consternation, that the law with that provision would be un constitutional. "Rut a bargain was entered into be tween the governor and the calamity pirates in the senate, by which the un constitutional provision should carry out its intent In the appointments to tbe court. It is eyen said that a part of the demand was that a certain sen ator, who assisted in creating the o dices, should be one of the judges. The bargain was carried out. ONE OF THE WORST SCANDALS. "One of the worst scandals con nected with Kansas 'legislation, lad been the appointment of members to offices created by thems slves. Out of tbe six judges of this new court, one bas been given to a senator, one to a representative, and one to tbe father of a representative. We sav nothing against the ability or the worth of tbe majority of the judges, but the practice is pernicious. Another representat ve bas been appointed to another of tbe new offices created. Resides, three senators and we do not know how many representatives were appointed to offices while the legislature was ia session. At least two of the senators al ready held appointive offices. One of them is a drunkard, and thereby gave good cause for removal; but as he was the chief agent in the performance of certain underhand work, he will hard y be disturbed in his position.
