Matthews Confirmed.
WASHINGTON, May 12—The Senate con­
firmed Stanley Matthews to-day, the vote
being 24 yeas to 23 nays. There has been
considerable interest manifested in1 the
case to-night, because the vote was so
close, and efforts have been made by the
opponents of Matthews to induce some
Senators who voted for him to move for a
reconsideration. Senator Anthony was
temporarily absent, and lost his vote.
Had he voted it would have been against
Matthews, and would have made a tie,
and would have rejected him. Mahone
left the chamber, not voting at all. When
the vote was finally announced no Sena­
tor who had voted in the negative changed
his vote to the affirmative, therefore it is
out of the power of Mathews' opponents
to get a reconsideration unless they can
pursuade some Senators who voted in the
affirmative to do it. All indications are
that th§ vote will stand, -and no further
attempt to defeat Mathews will be made.
Mahone and Don Cameron have de­
clared themselves as opposed to Chand­
ler's nomination, next to be taken up, and
their votes with the democrats will reject
him. Senator Dawes said in the conven­
tion to-day that the Republican Senators
are four to one in favor of confirming
Robertson, and that he would probably
be confirmed in time for the Senate to
adjourn Wednesday.
A Good-Slued Claini.
WASHINGTON, May 11.—A petition re-
of Fort cently filed in the United States Court of
Claims by the Union Pacific Railroad
Company, repiesenting that, up to and
iucluding December 31,1875, claims for
the transportion of mails had not been
adjusted upon.the terms proposed by the
Post-Office Department, which tenns af­
forded compensation to the company con­
siderably less than the amount charged to
and pa'd by private persons for like ser­
vices during the same period. The peti­
tion also cites in detail other services ren­
dered, for which proper compensation
had not been & received by the company.
The aggregate amount due the railroad,
according to the petition, is §1,141,721.
The case was argued before the Court of
Claims to-day. The case of the petitioner
was rested upon the s:xth section of the
act of Congress approved July 1st, 1862,
which act constitutes the charter of the
company. The section is as follows:
SECTION
6, And be it further enacted, that the
grants aforesaid are made upon the conditions
that said company'shall pay eaid bondo at mii
turitv, and snail keep said railroad and tele
grnpn line in repair and nee, and shall at all
times transmit cfispatches over said telegraph
line, and transport mails, troops, ammunition,
war supplies and public stores upon said rail­
road for the government whenever required to
do so by the department thereof, and that the
government shall at all times have preterence
in the use of the same for the pnrposes afore­
said, at fair and reasonable rates of compensa­
tion. not to exceed the anioun's paid by private
parties for the same kiild of service, and all
compensation for services so rendered tor the
government shall be applied to the "payment of
said houded interest uuti) the whole amount is
fully paid.
It is thought by the court officials, that
the case will be decided within the next
two weeks.
A liittlo L.obby Scheme.
ITARRTSBURG, Pa. May 12.—Sixty-five
delegates rewresenting sixty of the mu­
tual assessment life insurance companies
of this state, this morning adopted a reso­
lution setting fcrtli the necessity for the
appointment of a committee to locate a
cential office here, and to establislia news­
paper in behalf of the companies and to
devise means to prevent fraud by agents
and physicians and also to invite the leg­
islature to appoint a commission to investi­
gate their workings before passing the bill
relative to mutual assessment companies,

derogatory to their interests.
Evidence of Crime.
LOWELL, MASS., May 12.—Lorring
Latter was to-day employed in removing
an accumulation of ashes, dirt and debris
in a vault in the rear of Appleton street,
unused for about two years. After pro­
ceeding for some deptl^Sie found the par­
tially decayed body of a woman, entire
but for a loss of considerable, flesh, -and
having long hair disconnected from the
skull. The vault is attached to the dwell­
ings of two prominent citizens but as the
vault can be opened from a narrow ally
running between Appleton and Winter
streets, the theory prevails that tl|p body
was deposited surreptitiously, to conceal
a crime. nr?- -v

the Canadian Government his determina-,
tion to retire from the Governor-General­
ship after the Manitoba journey. This
decision has been reached after careful
and prolonged consultation with his.
father, the Duke of Argyle, ond friends
on both sides of the water. The princi­
pal political political reason which leads,
to this determination is the fact that the

Throat Cutting.
MEMPHIS, Tenu., May li.—This morn-'
mg William Simms, formerally employed*
as a druggist, went to Father William
Walsh, who resides in the parsonage ad­
joining St. Bridges' church, corner Third
& Overton streets and related a story of
trouble existing between himself and wife.
Father Walsh listened patiently as Simms
was laboring under great mental excite­
ment and finally told him to lie down on
the sofa in his study and then he would
go and see his wife and arrange matters
between them. Simms complied, and
Father Walsh, after locking the door to
prevent his being disturbed, went and
saw Mrs. Simms. Returning an hour af­
terwards Father Walsh was horrified^
upon entering his study to find Simms ly­
ing dead on the floor with his throat cut
from ear to ear. Deceased was a con­
firmed morphine eater and was under the
influence of the drug when he committed
the act.

WASHINGTON, May 12.—In the decision
of the Secretary of the Interior relative to
the construction of the North Pacific
railroad through the Crow Indian reser­
vation, the Secretary held that while no
unnecessary conditions to the contem­
plated surveys in aid of the reservation
should be interposed by the department,
yet to avoid unfriendly feelings on the
part of the Indians towards agents or em
p^ees of the road, he deemed it advisa­
ble to let. the Indians know previously for
what purpose the preliminary surveys are
being made, and assure them that an
agreement will be made satisfactory to
them.

Gen. Manager Haupt, aceompanied by
his stenographer, left St. Paul yesterday
morning for a trip over the road, and will
go as far west as -Sentinel Butte, M. T.
The trip will occupy ten days' time, and
it is to be hoped that Manager Haupt will
remain longer in Bismarck then on the
occasion of nift first visit. This' is the
most enterprising city on the line, and of
this any one will be convinced who makes
careful comparisons, as Gen. Haupt will
be apt to do on this occasion.
Water Works at Fort Yates.
Even a little military post gels away
with Bismarck on water works. From
Lieut. Ogle it is learned that.^en. Carl:n
has finished laying nearly tw6 miles of
pipe of the Fort Yates water works, and
intends to put hydrants in all the build­
ings and quarters at the post. The works
will be ran'by steam, and four men is all
that ia required to manage the business,
whereas it now takes twenty-five men. ten
to twelve wagons, and seveuty-five mules
to supply the post with water. This post
is one ot the handsomest in the country.
It is enclosed by a picket fence, and Gen.
C'arlin has personally supervised the
planting of hundreds of shade tiees in the
grounds. An excursion to this post from
Bismarck is a desirable trip in the sum­
mer season.
She'd 1*1ade a Mistake.
ThePekin Time* gives the following:
"A young lady of this city, who has a
young gentleman friend in Peoria, called
him over the telephone, which is located
in the office of the young fellow's father.
The required "hello" came back from
over the wire, an 1 the dear creature pro­
ceeded to.lay herself out in 'taffy.' which
she sent to the listening ear in vast quan­
tities. While ahe was stopping to take
breath a gruff voice in the telephone
startled her with the following sentence:
'I guess you've made a mistake, my dear
girl I'm"George's father.' When she re­
covered she found herself at home,among
friends."
Dilate Your Own "Booze."
One of Bismarck's old-time "boozers"
some time ago billed himself in all the
saloons that lie was determined to "booze"
and smoke no more^-the Mayor and Da­
kota, liquor law helping him out. A few
days ago, however, he longed for a
"smile," and to that end procured a bottle
of alcohol. He wished it diluted, and
called upon a next'door neighbor to pro­
cure the necessary amount of water. The
lady took the bottle, went to the well,
and innocently emptied and rinsed it out,
filled it with pure water, and returned it
to the "boozer," wiio went across the
street to take a swig. Imagine his sur­
prise, kind reader, and remember this
moral: Dilute vour own "booze."
A Cold Bridegroom,
On the 13th, near Muscatine, Elvin Y.
Pace and Ida M. Henneker were married,
after a six years' courtship. Immediately
after
the ceremony the bridegroom in­
formed the bride, in the presence of her
parents, that he could not live with her,
only giving as a reason that his parents
were
opposed to the matuh. He then lett
the house, and up In latest acrounts had
not beeu seen by the parties chiefly in­
terested. Pace is twenty-three, and both
he and his bride are of good reputation.
The affair is a mvstery and the sensation
of the rural district in which it happened.
