that hei palter no cudet should be ap
pointed who was not a resident of the

When the paragraph relative to armor

alejohn offered au amendment pro
viding for the appointment by
the speaker ol a select committee
of nine members, witn full power
to investigate tbe alleged armor plate
fraude by the Carnegie Steel company
or Carnegie, I'hipps ... Co , and the as

At 4:12 o'clock general debate closed
on the oill and it wae read by para
graphs for amendment. During the
reading of the bill Reed took occasion to
make a criticism on the evil ol reading
bills at a railroad rate of speed. A
discussion between Keed, Hopkins
of Illinois and Hatch wsi thus
started as an amusing, friendly debate,
but it soon degenerated into an angry,
personal discussion. Hopkins accused
Hatch of "juggling" salaries in tne de
partment of agriculture, when Hatch
angrily retorted that he would not allow
any such imputation on his action, and
he assured Hopkins that if he had
mads any euch remark outside the

that marked tho funeral ceremonies in
the senate the other day wae occasioned
by the arrival of Sir Julian Pauncefote.
Tho president, members of the supreme
court and all other visitors entitled to the
floor had taken their seats, and the short
wail preceding ihe opening of the serv

the main door opened, and Sir Julian,
dressed in a close fitting Prince Albert,
entered. He took a few steps forward
and then paused, while the niasrerof cere

Magnificent Court Entertainments.
Some court entertainments recently
have been magnificent. The court din
ner given iv Vienna in honor of the Ger
man emperor had peculiar features.
Though the guests numbered 80, the
whole dinner was served on gold plates
and dishes. The centerpieces aud vases
likewise were of massive gold. Really
two dinners were served, because it was
Friday. Beside each plate lay two me
nus, a fish menu on simple white card
board with thu imperial eagle in relief
and a meat menu with the usual gold
ornaments and the eagle in gold. As
Ihe guests sat down every oue was asked
by the lackeys whether a fish or meat
dinner would be agreeable, and then one
ttienu was taken away. So the servants
knew what dishes to servo. Only the
emperor. Archduchess Maria Theresa,
Archduchess Caroline and two cardinals
tasted. Everybody else selected the meat
dinner.—Vienna Letter.

By tbe Associated Press.
Kansas City, May 15.—Governor
Stone unqualifiedly launched the presi
dent: il boom for "Silver Dick" Bland
in the Miaeouri state convention here
today. The temporary chairman, J. M.
Trimble, after a long-continued row in
the committee on resolutions, sought to
make matters smooth in bis opening
speech to the convention, by declaring
that atate conventiona did not meet to
decide national isauea or to nominate a
preaidential candidate, nor to create a
presidential poasibility.
When Governor Stone, who waa made
permanent chairman, arose to make hia
talk, about the first thing be uttered waa
a denial ol Trimble's propositions.
State conventions, be declared, expreee
the thought of the people, which waa
crystallized at national conventione. He
waa aorry that rumor made him a can
didate for United States senator, a posi
tion he did not seek. When he retired
from tbe governorship, he aaid emphatic
ally, it would be to return to private life.
But regarding the report which con
nected Congressman Bland with the
presidential nomination of 1896, he
wished to say that the people could not
nominate a more conscientious, faithful
and devoted servant. No better man
had ever been elected to public office.
He was worthy of tbe highest confi
dence. And if tbe apeaker ever had an
opportunity he would gladly support
bim, aa he would any other honest
repreaentative western Democrat for
that high office.
The convention had scarcely assem
bled for its afternoon session when there
were loud calls for "Bland" from all
parts of the house. The delegates would
not be quieted until they were told Mr.
Bland was buay in tbe commutes room
and could not be seen tonight.
The principal figtit in the committee
on resolutions was over the adoption of
tbe silver plank. The memi-ers were
willing to pass over the questions of ia
dorsing th- Democratic national admin
istration, but Govern ir Stone aud Con
gressman Bland were flat-tooted for a
silver plank in tbe platlorm, and uo com

Loud nnd repeated cries of "Yes" was
the response.

governor, "that Wall -treet cann it cor

executive of tbe city, made tbewelcom

Responding to a call during in lull iv

So soon as they have the field to them

most uisgusting orgies. Simpson, who,
having married a full blooded "Klootcb
mau," is what is known as a "squaw
man," has been specially favored or
trusted by being permuted to witness
some of these rites and gives a tern
ble description of what is known to the
Indians as a "man eater dance." which
he witnessed a few months ago. In
this dance the manista, or chief char
acter, horrifies the spectators by appear
ing with a "fiinmmy" or the shriveled
remains of a back number native, taken
from au eminence upon which it was
exposed to dry after death, and tearing
the shriveled flesh from the bones as he
dances about a huge log fire, all the
time uttering the most frightful sounds
in the Indian vocabulary of lamentations.
Simpson also lately saw the horrible
torture of a maiden in connection with
another dance, in which, to prove herself
worthy to be the bride of a brave chief
tain, she allowed great barbed hooks to
be driven through the flesh of her back
and danced almost naked, while the chief
held the reins attached to the hooks and
by a series of wrenches c- entually tore
the flesh apart and released them. Mis
sionaries have taken great credit through
out the civilized world for having con
verted these savages, and the govern
ment has been led to believe that the
dances now carried on are only imita
tions of former barbarity, bnt Simpson,
who is a reliable man, asserts that they
are no mockery at all, but a most revolt

Senator Kyle Him Advanced Hit Idea That
May Poaelbly Become Law.
iho present financial stringency and
trouble with savings banks aud other in
stitutions of deposit h«T«j suggested to
Senator Kyle of Dakota a postal savings
scheme. He is of the opinion that tho
designation of certain postofiices in vari
ous parts of the country ao receivers for
small deposits wonld '>o advantageous,
and a bill is now before the senate com
mittee on poetofiioee providing for tho
details of such n plan.
It is proposed to receive small deposits
at money order offices, for which inter
est at the rate of °j per cent per annum
will be paid. The depositors will receive
stamps in denominations ranging from
10 cents to $1. These are to be kept as
securities by the depositor and are trans
ferable aud redeemable on presentation
at any money order office, proofs of
course being required as to the identity
of the holder. The money thus accumu
lated by the government is to be loaned
to farmers ou first mortgage security on
lands worth $5,000 and over at 4 per cent
The scheme is not wholly new or
wholly impracticable. Postal savings
banks are a regular feature of the Brit
ish and continental postal arrangements
of Europe, Mr. Wauamakor was a warm
advocate of the idea while he was post
master general. There is little doubt
but that some plan of making small de
posits through the postoffice would bo
ill to persons far removed from sav
i. bankß and other banking institu
tii They would make the hoardings
of mattj people available in tiie interest
beau 'ig funds. The banking project,
how, VOT, of loaning money to furmers
on real estate is a matter upon which a
difference of opinion might readily ex
isi. As a consequence it wonld be quite
neci ssary to discuss this feature of the
Kyle bill exhaustively.
Ii i- to be hoped that a good working
postal savings scheme will be developed
in this country In the near future. While
it may not be needed to tho degree that
it is in some foreign countries, it would
undoubtedly prove n great public con
venience und an inducement to more
general saving among persons of small
income.—Baltimore Herald.
A Feature of the Midwinter Fair Fusses
Away In Indian Fashion.
A visitor to tiio Midwinter fair in San
Francisco says that the little old Taqni
woman at the Arizona Indian village,
who was said to bo 110 years old, is dead.
Yet they say there "it was the new coun
try that killed ncr, and the clothing.'' It
is not good for a Taqui to wear shoes,
and tho women are 6ick when they feel
the tight dress across their shoulders.
She died just at sun; a, which, the In
dians soy, is a good sigu.
Before she died they washed her face
and put ou her shroud and carried her
out of her wigwam and laid her ou the
b.ire ground, put stone? under her head
and uncovered her neck and arms, be
cause they said it was good she should
fi al the fresh air for the lust time on her
skin. When she had died, they put a
i cloth over her face, raised her arms high
I over her chest and clasped her hands to
gether and placed a burning candle at
her head and one at her feel and began
to trail for her. All night the village
women wailed around the body, aud the
next day it was buried in Calvary ceme
Open For'F.xperiments.
A recent issue of The Medical Bulletin
printed the following remarkable offer:
Physicians desiring to obtain a subject
on which to observe the process of di
gestion or other workings of the vital or
gan, ur on whom to try the effects of
poisons and their antidotes, may proba
bly do so by communicating with the ed
itor of The Bulletin. Subject is unmar
ried und not prevented by any ties or re
sponsibilities from acting in this matter
as he chooses, and does not object to a
probable fatal termination of the affair.
Good Friday lv Spain.
A curious Good Friday custom still
prevails in Spain. On that day the Span
ish sovereign pardons a certain number
of criminals condemned to death, and
this year the queen regent reprieved
seven unfortunate men. Standing with
one hand on the petitions for mercy,
Donna Christina placed tho other on a
crucifix and paid solemnly, according to
formula, "I pardon these men that God
may pardon me." The news of the re
prieve was then telegraphed to the cul
prit«.—Mi. 1 -.! » ""'or.
