enemy, if encountered, and meanwhile to

Continues to be the most prominent topic for
newspaper discussion. The North German
Gazetti says: The opposition press have not

assumed by Bismarck toward the Lasker res
olution. We maintain that the dispatch
returning the resolution was couched in a
most considerate tone. The document docs
not eveu criticise the attempt made to de
mand of the leading minister of n foreign
government an official glorification of a leader
of the opposition. In preparing the dispatch,
Bismarck was evidently guided by the Idea
that the majority of the American represen
tatives had not known Lasker. We shall not
err iu assuming that the initiative to the In
troduction of the resolution in the house of
representatives was due to the direct or in
direct Influence of Lasker's German partisans.

exciting public opinion in America against
the German government.
The representatives passed the resolution
with the simple intention of pleasing Ger
many. The intention of glorifying a Gcr
man of anti-government tendencies is of
course no! to be sought among American
representatives, but among the German par

Plon) and his son, Prince Victor Napoleon,
j-ave an audience this morning to eighty
delegates from Bonapartist committees form
ed for the purpose of considering the ques
tion of a revision of the constitution. Re
plying to their address Prince Na
poleoa said: "Your presence here
proves, when it is necessary to
defend the national sovereignty and tbe
rights of the people, a Napoleon can always
be called upon. I am happy to have my son
at my side. 'Tis a confirmation of the union of
our family, and shows it is as impossible to
separate the father and son as to separate
Napoleons from the cause of the people. The
bad faith existing in some quarters has mis
represented the pacific and perfectly legal
agitation with which our party is pursuing
the constitution of 1*76, imposed upon the
country by an Orleanist in
trigue, which subordinated even-thing
to parliament, and handed over the
government of the country to irresponsible
majorities, and which is the cause of our
present Ills, symptoms of which are becoming
alarming. I trust you will not listen to a
few individuals who are preaching a narrow
bombastic, seditious policy, but that you will
follow a great and loyal policy, which shall
vindicate the rights of the people. Place
yourselves at the head of this revision move
ment, and the country will follow you. I
speak In behalf of neither myself nor ray
son. but the priuciple I represent. To the
people alone belongs the right of constituting
a government by the choice of that man for
its head whom it deems most capable
among tbe nation."
Representative Cox Gets Several Heavy
Knocks on State Eights.
A Number of Bills and Reports Introduced,
Some Important.
The House of Representatives.
Washington*, Feb. 23. —Under call of
committees the following reports were made
By Mr. Moulton, from the committee on
judiciary, providing for holding terms of
court in the northern district of Illinois, at
Peoria. ,
By .Mr. Foran, from the committee on
labor, to prohibit the Importation and immi
gration and of foreigners under contract, to
perform labor in the United States. Placed
on the house calendar.
By Mr. Money, from the committee on
postofliees and post-roads, amending the
statutes, authorizing the Brigadier General
to prohibit the delivery of , registered letters,
and the payment of money orders and pro
viding for a return of the same placed on the
house calendar.
The house then wont Into the committee
of the whole, Mr. Converse in the chair, on
the pleuro-pneumonia bill.
Mr, Gibson opposed the bill because it
proposed to take out of the hands of owners
of cattle the control of their stock, and put it
In the hands of federal officers.
Mr. Stewart, Texas, argued against the bill
on constitutional grounds.
Mr. Springer supported the hill. The
power which could quarantine a ship in any
harbor in the United States could certainly
permit a diseased Texas steer from being
shipped from one state to another. The con
stitution was always the refuge of those who
had r poor argument against the necessary
measure of legislation.
Mr. Jones, of Wisconsin, reviewed the in
portance aud necessity of the pending
measure^ and urged its passage.
Mi srs. Hardeman, Broadheod, Halse!
and 1 tttcr opposed the bill. The. latter took
the ground that it invaded domestic concerns
of the states.
Mr. J. 8. WiSe, of Virginia, spoke in oppo
sltion to the states' rights doctrine, which
has been presented as an argument why the
bill should not pass. The three states most
boisterous about the constitution aud most
jealous of federal power, were Louisiana,
Texas and West Virginia. Louisiana was
bought with money out of the pocket of the
Union and had no particular reason to kick.
Texas was bought with blood, and had some
reason to feel kindly/towards the nation instead
of continuing cackling about the constitu
tion, like a gilly bird robbed of her nest.
West Virginia was nothing but a bastard off
spring of a national violence committed in
old Virginia. He had heard the gentleman
from New York, (Cox,) boast that he was a
shinine light, and a monument of the De
nioerarcy hereto point out the doctrine of
state rights. He did not call the gentleman
a monument. He called him a pillar of gas
by night and a pillar of gas by day, to
lead the Democracy. [Laughter.] He
was sick of hearing the little
bantling chicken of state rights being pitted
against the heavy, gorgeous, red combed
lighting cock of the nation, for it knocked it
to smithereens every time. [Laughter.]
The committtee then rose.
The commiitee of ways and means, through
Mr. Morrison, reported the bonded spirits ex

report. Referred to the committee of the

delegates the right to vote in committees?

The Senate Committee Agree to a Bill
Admitting' that Part South
of the 4Gth Parallel,
And Providing for a Constiuutional Conven
tion to be Held Next December-
Other Provisions.
Wasiiixgtox, Feb. 23.—The bill providing
for the admission of the southern part of the
territory of Dakota as n state, which the sen
ate committee on territories to-day agreed to
report favorable, is similar in many respects
to the bill reported by that committee at the
last session of congress. It is in most fea
tures like the ordinary "enabl
ing acts," and provides for organizing
a state, to be known as Dakota,
from that part of the territory of that name,
south of the 40th parallel, that a constitu
tional convention is to be held on the second
Tuesday in December, and delegates to be
elected on Nov. 14, next. This eonven
tion is to include 120 delegates, ah unusually
large number being required to fully repre
sent the people of the embryo state. The dele
gates are to be elected from single districts.
The usual grants of public lands" for educa
tional purposes are made, and a provision is
included, requiring the new state to assume
the debts incurred for the erect
ing of such public buildings as are
located within its limits. The bill leaves the
northern portion of the territory with a ter
ritorial organization, but its name is not yet
agreed upon. Pembina, North Dakota,
Man dan, and other names have been urged
upon the committe, but no selection has been
made, and the committee is open to-sugges
tions. Delegates at present in the city have
insisted strenuously on the name North Da
kota, but the committee, while appreciating
tnc natural tenacity felt for the name, have,
unanimously decided it would not be a good

Chicago, Feb. 23—Pinkerton's agency,
has caused the arrest of Neil McKaigue, a
young butcher of Winnetka, for the supposed
murder of the aged Wilson couple last week.
After the discovery of the murder McKaigue
said Wilson the night before the murder pur
chased meat in his shop, and remarked he
had a visitor whom he was entertaining. De
tectives find that Wilson held McKuigue's
note for ?900, which, together with the mem
orandum book kept by Wilson, is missing.
McKaigue asserts his innocence. McKaigue
was taken before the grand*jury this after
noon and on testimony offered was indicted
for the Wilson murder. He Is now in jail.
The evidence given before the grand jury
against McKaigno was purely of a circum
stantial nature, but apparently very strong
and criminating. Three buttons found
on the floor of Wilson's residence covered
with blood, and which had evidently been
wrenched from the murderer's vest during
the terrible fight with the old man, were pro
duced, as was also McKaigne's vest. The
buttons were of a peculiar design, and one of
them had been torn from its fastening,
with such force, that it was broken
aud the center part, which was held
by the thread, was broken out. The but
ton was compared with those on McKalgne's
vest and corresponded exactly. Then the
broken button was placed over the core of
the button retained on the vest, and it fitted
exactly. A number of other apparently
criminating circumstances were adduced,
and the feeling now is that the great murder
mystery will be unraveled. A revolver be
longing to McKaigne has been found, and
tbe two bullets taken from Wilson's body
fit the chambers of the revolver. McKaigue
is unable to account for his whereabouts the
night of the murder. The prisoner, notwith
standing all these disclosures, takes the mat
ter very coolly and persists in asserting his

building in which the accident happened
was purchased by the city for the use of
company K. While being moved, experts
were heard to remark that a new structure
would have been the cheapest, which is very
likcly to prove true. It is most fortunate
that the members of the company were not
in the building when the breakage occurred.
Messrs. Marsh, Clapp and J. N. Castle left

lecting taxes on certain piue lands aud af
terwards assessing as personal property the
logs cut on the said land. By this process
non-residents are compelled to pay taxes
twice on the same property. The good peo
ple of Wisconsin very likely look on this law
aseminently right and proper, but to the
lumbermen who are affected by the operation
the measure presents an entirely different
appearance. The suit will be heard in the
United States circuit court, now in session
in the capital city of Wisconsin.

this evening. He said the only truth in the
whole matter was that he had had a drive in

The Ex-Champion Badly Beaten in a
Disreputable Chicago Dance
[Special Telegram to the Globe. |
Chicago, Feb. 23.—Paddy Ryan, the prize
fighter, was whipped in one round last night.
He was attending a disreputable dance at the
Club hall, corner of Third avenue and Harri
son street. In the gallery were a number of
depraved women drinking. Ryan was at a
table with some ef them. One of his com

women at that table sprang to their feet in a

A critic commenting on the vices of the
stage and of audiences makes some salient
points. He instances the slovenly enuncia
tion of many actors, a failure to pronounce
words with distinctness, the inaudible, mut
tering, mumbling way in which they speak.
It is refreshing to contrast the performance
of a welltrained actor, with sueh slipshod
work. These careless players are neglecting
details which are first requisites to success.
Another little stage vice which 9eems to be
in vogue now is that of actors reappearing to
acknowledge applause after an exit during
the progress of a scene. This completely
destroys the illusion, and is in violation of
all the rules of the art. Yet it has been seen
during the past week in one of the best of
the few stock companies in New York. As
for the vices of audiences, their name is
legion. The people who come in late, th>
people who talk alottd, the people who talk
in a sibilant whisper that is worse than talk
ing aloud, the women who wear big hats, the
men who go out every time the curtain
drops, climbing over a whole row of persons
to do it, and come back with bar-room odors
clinging about them, the people who take
seats they are not entitled to. and cause con
fusion and noise when they must be turned
out, —these are some of the criminal classes
in a theater audience.
The circulation and indirectness of many a
narrator of events is well hit off in the fol

"He said he had heen keeping it for me,
and that he " "No, no; he could not

person; repeat his exact words." "There
was no third person, my lord, only him and

We are on different stories. There was no
