>ored the repeal bill, it could not pass tbe senate. Vest replied that if the senator read the rules and witnessed the proceedings tinder them, ha ought to be able to an swer the questions satisfactorily to him ■elf. Hill replied, if tbe rales of tbe senate prevent tbe passage of a bill which the majority desires to paea, the beat thing is to amend the rules in the usual man ner. Vest retorted that he had beard that during the discussion of the force bill, but tbe rales were not changed. Hill said he repudiated tbe doctrine that one-fifth of the senate could abso lutely prevent legislation. The power to make roles implied the power to change them. "Has it come to this," asked Hill in closing, "that the senate is powerlesa, first, to legislate, and sec ond, to change the rules so it can legis late hereafter? If so, it might as well disband." The repsal bill was laid before the sen site. Jones of Nsvada took the floor and proceeded with his speech. At 3:45 be asked tbe indulgence of tbe senate, as he was not feeling well enough to finish today. Peffer then took the floor. Palmer of Illinois got into a parlia mentary squabble with Kyle and Allen. Palmer was complaining of tbe speeches made to consume time, and Kyle asked Aim to specify one speech. Palmer replied: "I will answer by saying that I believe the senator from Nebraska —" This was as far as he went, as Allen called kirn to order. Palmer declined to take anything back and Allen denied that his speech wsb an effort to cave time. After some colloquy, Cullum suggested that tbe matter be dropped. Teller objected, saying be was tired of incessant criticisms in the press and from other sources that tbe opponents of repeal ware wasting time, and char acterizing their force as revolutionary. The next time auch a auggestion was made to him, he shonld call the author to book. Cnllom's enggestion was then adopted and Peffer resumed his speech. At 6 p.m.Pugh observed that the sen ate had been in session seven hours, and Peffer yielded to a motion to adjourn. Voorhees expreaeed the hope that the motion would be voted down, aaying he would ask the senate to remain in ses sion until 10 p.m. By a vote of 39 to 18 the senate refused to adjourn. Within tbe next 30 minutes the atten tion of the chair was called three times to the fact that a quorum was not in the chamber, but on each roll call a quorum responded. On the last call, Dolph said Kyle, who was present and not voting, should be recorded for the purpose of making a quorum. Tbe point of order Was overruled. On the call at 6:40 the senate waa Without a quorum, but a moment later two senators appeared and Voorhees re quested that further proceedings under the call be dispeneed with. Dubois called for the ayes and nays. On this roll call when pairs had to be respected no quorum voted, but during the call of the senate to disclose tbe presence of a quorum when pairs did not count, a quorum always appeared. Thua for two hours the senate was clogged. When Voorheea found the predica ment he was placed in, be attempted to withdraw his motion, upon which Du bois called for the ayea and nays, but this required unanimous concent, and this Teller refused to give. Finally at 8:40 a voting quorum was obtained and Peffer continued his speech. At 10 o'clock Peffer without conclud ing his speech, yielded to Voorhees who asked tbe senate to adjourn. The mo tion was agreed to. Lexington Fall Meeting. Lexington, Ky., Oct. 16.—This waa the opening day of the fall meeting of the running races. The track and weath er were fine.

CRIME'S CARNIVAL IN RIVERSIDE. The Bloodiest Tragedy in the City's History. An Injured Husband Murders His Unfaithful Spouse. He Cutf Her Throat Then Blow* Off Hit Own Heart—A Horee Doctor's Spree Ended by m Fatal Dose or Morphine. Special to Ihe Hcfalv. riivsKKiDE, Oct. 16.—The bloodiest tragedy that has occurred in this city for the past 10 years was enacted today. W. E. Wrialey killed his wife and then pulled the trigger of • shot gun and blew off bis own head, shortly before 1 o'clock this afternoon. For some time Wrieley had suspected that his wife was not faithful to ber marriage vows, and last Friday night he seta watch to catch her. He was re warded by seeing a man enter the house. He secured the assistance of a policeman and went to the bonse. The officer knocked on the front door and informed the woman who he was, but she delayed opening the door. The man attempted to escape, but was caught. Tbe erring wife appeared before the police court next day, pleaded guilty to tbe charge of keeping a house of ill-fame and was fined $25, with the understanding that it would be withheld as long as she be haved herself. The court excluded all the spectators from the room, and she made a statement in which she laid the blame at tbe door of her hueband. Wrisley, who was well liked by all who knew him and was considered an industrious and faithful husband, broi d ed over the affair till he became desper ate. From the way the affair was car ried out be doubtless planned all the details and carried them ont to the let ter. Hie wife, « bom be had not lived with since September let, had an nounced that she was going to San Francisco. Today, about 12:30, Bhe went up town to get an expressman to move her trunk to the depot, and from the manner in which the killing was ac complished it appears that Wrisley went to the home where she lived, which is just in the rear of tbe Park hotel, at the corner of Market and Eighth streets. When she returned he struck her over the head with a castiron window weight and then cot ber throat with a fonr-inch dirk knife, almost severing the head from the trunk. The knife was left sticking in ber neck. He rushed from the scene of the crime to his room in the Park hotel, where he bad been stopping. The proprietor no ticed htß hurry, but thoagbt nothing of it till he heard the discbarge of a gun. Upon investigation Wrialey waa found lying on the floor dead. The proprietor gave the alarm im mediately. An officer soon arrived at the hotel, and, going to the cottage in the rear, found the body of Mrs. Wris ley lying on the bed, partly disrobed, with her throat cut. The blood had dripped through the bedding and formed a pool on the floor, and her breast, hands and arms were covered with clotted gore. Returning to the room in which Wria ley lay, a more sickening eight present ed itself. The whole right side of his head was blown away. Tbe weapon, a single barreled, breech-loading shotgun, lay by his side. The body lay in a pool of blood, while the aides of tbe room and ceiling were spattered with blood and brains. The bed, dresaer, window, stand and in fact everything in the room was covered with brains and small pieceß of the skull. In a bank book fonnd on tbe suicide's person a communication was found written on tbe fly leaf, in which he said he bad become tbe object of too much notoriety, and that he was disgraced and had concluded to end his life. He said his wife had informed him that she loved another, and that h) could not live and see ber enjoy the affections of another man. He alto wrote a letter to his fraternal friends, the I. O. O. F. lodge of this city, in which he asked them to bury his body with all the rev erence due him, and thanked them for all the kindness they had bestowed upon him. He bid bis old friend, Charlie Wood, goodbye in a very affectionate manner on the same Bbeet of paper, and aIBO asked the undertaker to see that he was buried in hie canton uni form. The following was doubtless written last: "She Bays she loves another; that settlea it; if I can't have her.no one else shall. Here goes. Everything iB ready. Today we will die! Good-bye, everybody! W. E. W. "P. B.—l do not wish to live longer, if we cannot live together in this world, perhaps we may in tbe next. I love her still, call me what they will." In tbe same book, which is a First National bank book of Los Angeles, is a deposit for $400, recorded October sth. The city marahal has telegraphed word of the affair to Mrs. Merrill, Mra. Wrißley'e mother, at San Francisco. Mr. Wrißley requested in a letter found on the stand that Mr. O. L. Leach of Northfield Farm, Mace., should be notified of his death. The bodies were removed to George F. Ward's undertaking establishment, where an inquest was held. Tbe jury returned a verdict of murder in the case ol Mrs. Wrisley, at tbe hands ot her hußbnnd. It decided that Wrisley had suicided. The suicide was under $300 bonds for arson, as he was supposed to have set lire to hiß residence September !Hh. The bodies will be buried tomorrow, thua ending the last chapter in their sad lives. ONE MORE UNFORTUNATE. Fatal Termination of a Riverside Morse Doctor's Spree.

On October 9th a notice of tbe marriage of Annie Payne of San Luis Obispo to 0. VV. Paige was published, and on October 12th there was a notice of Paige's de:".th.

A Vile l.to In th« I'lilory. Weeks bcforo tho royal wedding it was openly whispered that the Duke of York, a. gallant sailor fiud a gentleman, had made a false step, had been forgets ful of his princely and knightly duties und obligations, and had, in fact, boen secretly married and involved himself in a mesalliance, repugnant to hiaftenseof honor and illegal in tho eyes cttho well known statuto law. That la wis simple. None of our blood royal can legally con tract marriage without tho consent of the reigning sovereign. Morganatic marriages have been recognized as such, and such love inapiv: . sanctity as at taches to these nnious when faithfully adhered to. The world !;bowb all about them and sympathizes with them. But what caid the quidnuncs, tho tattlers, the irrespou rible, the chattering spar rows who build under tho eaves of pal aces? Blankly this, that George of Wales was married; that iho name of the place and the name of tiio lady, alleged to be the daughter of a naval officer of high degree, were known, and both names iir. l ;ilaceachanged and fluctuated as the price of soandal shares rose or fed in the gossip market. Like ill winds, the ugly rumor grew apace over the dinner table and afternoon teapot. Men talked of it —more sharno to them—women irmr mured it with giggles and innuendo; the very "outsiders" got bold of it, and all the time the story was positively and ab solutely untrue. Think you for an in stant thai tiio head of our church would have married our prince and princess had he not first satisfied himself, as we have rrfison to ljhow ho did, that the silly story was wholly untrue, absolutely baseless? The question carries its own Niswer. V/e contradict it directly with authority. Gentlewoman, A lllff Lobster Pound. There is a lobster farm, or pound, as it is called, 13 acres in extent at Southport, Me. This pound Is the most successful on the coast, whence 1,000,000 lobsters are shipped each year. The pound is formed by building a solid dam across a tidewater cove. This dam doua uot quite rise to high water mark, but acioss the top is placed a fenoe of iron rods, per mitting a daily change of water and pre venting the lobsters from escaping. In tbo poring and fall business is most brisk. When tho fisherman bring the lobsters to the pound, the '''fish." as they ara called, uro hoisted to the dam, measured, and those which are more than 10, inches long, the legal limit.are thrown in. If a lobster is clever, hjs life in the pound may be long and full of joy. If he is stupid, he will be fished, out with a drap seine and packed in a barrel, with a piece of ice for a pillow, and sent to Boston. The seine is made of stout twine and is weighted at tho bottom with a heavy chain. Along the top is a row of corks, which sustain the weight of tho roino while the chain drags on the bottom of the pound. A single cast of this seine will bring up lobsters enough to fill 11 barrels. Tho chain as it sweeps along the bottom stirs up the lobsters, which immediately shoot backward into the slack twine. In tak ing them out the men wear heavy mit tens, though even then they are often nipped. In the pound the lobsters are fed on salt herring, men rowing about in skiffs and pitching the herring over board. This is called "feeding the chick ens," and it takes about six barrels to make a light luncheon for the flock.— Boston Globe. The Tat In Ancient Times. Tho cat was so very highly regarded in England at ouo time, both as a rat and mouse catcher, and ns an ornament to society, that we find the following salu tary law passed by one of the princes of Wales: "If any one steal or kill a Cat that guards tho Prince's Granery, ho is to forfoit a milch Ewe, its Flceco and Lamb. Or, as much Wheat as, when poured upon tho cat suspended from, its tail, with the head touching the floor, would form v heap high enought to cover tho tip of tho former." Though the Welsh had a high opinion of tho cat, the ancient Egyptians had v. still higher. Theso intelligent und civ ilized people treated cats with great dis tinction. It was a crime to kill them, and when they died they received a pub lic burial, at which tho people mourned, having first shaved off their eyebrows as a token of sorrow. The most prominent cats were upon death embalmed in drngs and spices, And cat mummies have been found side by sido with those of kings. When Cambyses, the Persian, attacked the Egyptian city of Pelusis, ho cunning ly provided his soldiers with cats in stead of shields. When tho host ad vanced, the Egyptians retired in confu sion upon discovering that they would bo unablo to do daiuuge to their enemy without seriously imperiling the lives of vast numbers of cats. And so tho city was taken easily und without the loss of blood or of a cat. It cannot lie disputed that tho ancient Egyptian cats must have enjoyed lifo very much.—St. Louiß Post- Dispatch.
