An Appropriation of Two tad Half Millions Made for the World's Fair. Conference Report on the Sundry Civil Bill Adopted by Weary L^iiletOM. WASHINGTON, Aug. 6.—The first ses sion of the fifty-first congress has ad journed. The dying hours were un eventful and lacking in any excitement, and save for the president and two mem bers of the cabinet and an unusually 1 :r crowd of people in the galleries, i principally ladies dressed in summer at tire, there was nothing to denote that the gavel was about to fall adjourning the two houses until December next, Nearly all the senators and representa tives in the city were in their seats when tho clock pointed to the hour for ad journment, and on the floors of both houses and around the corridors and clerk's office there was a bustle and ex citement incident to the preparation of bills which passed during the evening fer the president's signature before the session of congress expired. Shortly after 8 o'clock, as is custom ary on such occasions, the president ar rived at the capitol and was immediate ly shown to Ms room, where he was en gaged for some minutes chatting with senators and Vice President Morton. Soon after arriving the world's fair bill appropriating two and a half millions, which was passed by both the senate an^ house during the afternoon, w *presented for his signature, and in a few minutes it became a law. Other bills followed, and for some minutes the president was kept busy affixing his name to various measures, consisting principally, however, of bills of a pri vate nature. An unusually small num ber were presented to him and he soon completed his task and spent the remin der of his time talking to senators and others who happened m. CASEY'S MEASURE PASSED. The Rod River Valley Relief IH1J Becomes a Law. WASHINGTON, Aug. 6.—It was a great surprise to everybody when tliere was no objection in the house to passing the Casey bill granting relief to settlers on the Red River valley lands. A suprems conrt decision held that the Manitoba, now the Great Northern, was owner of the lands. After negotiations of last summer had been reported Mr. Casey introduced a bill which in a somewhat modified form has passed both houses. Representative Johnson has. for several, days been trying to get recognition from speaker Crisp, and after the world's ap propriation was out of the way and a number of other matters had been dis posed of, the long sought recognition was given, and, strange to say, there was no objections to the bill. When the bill came over to the senate, Senator Pettigrew moved that the amendments be concurred in and this being agreed to the bill was sent to the president. The success of this bill will give a great deal of joy to many settlers in the Red River valley. At 10 o'clock p. m. the president signed the bill and it became a law. Reed's Opinion of Congress. NEW YORK, Aug. 6.—In a long inter view of the work of congress published in The Press ex-Spoaker Reed charges the Democratic party with extravagance and incompetency and says: "The Re publican party expended $402,000,000 the first session of the Fifty-first con gress and were roundly abused therefor. The lowest figures any Democrat can now make fur his congress is $ol0,000, 000. These figures are undisputed. The moral is undisputable. CARTER'S VALEDICTORY. The Retiring Land Commissioner Makes His Final Report. WASHINGTON, Aug. 8. —Commissioner Carter's valedictory report of the opera tions of the land office for the past fiscal year has been made public. The com missioner says that under the repeal of the timber culture law, approved last year large numbers of cases, long sus pended on tbe mere suspicion of fraud or under technical rulings, have been passed to patent and more than 800,000 additional entries have been considered and proper action taken. .The total amount of agricultural patents issued from lbSS to 1891 is 898,1^8, covering 63,700,000 acres, substantially clearing the docket and leaving the office free to attend to current business. The number of mineral patents issued from 1888 to 1892 was8.7t4, clearing the mineral and coal dockets. The acreage of public lands disposed of during the fiscal year was 1,571,000 acres. The miscellaneous tracts aggregated 11,698,000 acres and Indian lands 97,000 more than a year ago and a total in round figures of 18, 661.000. There were patented for the benefit of railway companies under congressional grants during the past fiscal year 2,018,000 acres, as against an area patented entries during the pre vious fiscal year of 3,088,000 acres. Dur ing the fiscal year ending June 30, 1891, an area of 408,000 acres was patented to several states under the survey land grant, but during the period covered by the report only 176,000 acres were pat ented, making a decrease of 232,000. The evils which attached to the system of surveys in former years, by which the government suffered greatly from fraud in deception practiced by filers tas been mainly eliminated from the service. The commissioner says the of fice is in constant receipt of letters -com plaining bitterly of the burden that they are forced to bear because of the non Bijrveys of their land and consequent un certainty of their locations. The total area of the vacant public land in the United States i3 567,086,000 acres, of which 289,691,000 acres 'Kar^'BEEN- BUT-, veyed. THE DIG PARADE. Thirty Thousand Knights Templar in Line at Denver. DENVER, Aug. 9.—The immeuse pa rade of the Knights Templar this morn ing was the event of the encampment. Fully 30,000 uniformed Sir Knights were in lino and the streets were fairly jammed with spectators. The parade began shortly after 10 a. m. and was not concluded for over six hours. There were nearly 300 bands in lino, and the commanderies pride themselves on hav ing the best music obtainable. One of the most attractive features was Cali fornia Commandery No. 1, which had 190 members in the parade all mounted on black horses. The streets are all paved with asphalt and the rain of yesterday afternoon caused no mud or slush. An order has been issued by Grand Master Gobin directing that the com petitive drill of Wednesday be declared off. This is in the interest of harmony exclusively and was made at the sugges tion of prominent Knights. It was a great disappointment to those who had counted on taking part. The exhibition drill will be given Thursday. Boston and Cincinnati are competitors in the' contest—for the place of holding the con clave in 1893. It will be a pretty even fight—as both cities are strongly re presented. THE WESTERN CAMPAIGN. RejHl&iean Politics AY til Be Run by a Snb-Comiuitte.

Another meeting of the executive committee will be held Friday or Satur day. The compensation of the officers and employes of the national committee is to,be fixed. LAWLER FOR GOVERNOR.

With the Kzception of a Few Blacklisted Men A11 the Old Force Returned—Four Hundred Non-Union Workmen at Home stead Go Out—Strikers Jubilant. PITTSBURG, Aug. 8.—The Duquesne rioters had a hearing before Alderman Reilly at 8 p. m. Quite a crowd of Duquesne workmen were present to hear the case. Mr. E. Y. Breck appeared for tho commonwealth and Mr. S. W. Bren nan and J. R. McQuaid for the defense. O. P. Griffith a coal and iron policeman at the Duquesne iron works and the in formant in these cases, was the first wit ness and testifiod that ho heard the crowd about the gate and heard them threaten the men who tried to enter the nulL. Many of the men had clubs. William Mislagel, the master mechanic of the Duquesne mills, swore he had come to the mill at 6:30 and was stopped by five men, who dragged him away from the mills aud told him that if he went in he would wish he had not. Hugh Bovce, a carpenter at the works, was topped by the men but went in despite iho threats that were made iigainst him. A number of other wit nesses were examined and the prosecu tion closed us case. Attorney Brennan for tbe deieuse suggested that Snyder and McLean, two of the men on trial, should be let go as they had not been in the crowd but only on the steps of a house near by and the remainder be ad mitted to bail for a cqnt trial. Mr. Breck understood that Snyder and McLean were arretted on the testimony of Deputy Young, who was not then present and that therefore the court should not free them. He agreed to the remainder being let go on bail. Squire Reilly finally held Ursie, Easier, Bukie, Bfunett,-Kennedy, Hogan, ^folau, Kaua and Coates for court and fixed bail at $1.000. Sn}'der and McLean were re leased on parole to appear for a further hearing. All of the men got bail except Ursie, who went to jail. STRIKERS JUBILANT. Several Hundred Non-Union Men Desert the Jlills at Homestead. HOMESTEAD, Pa., Aug. 8.—It would be hard to find a more jubilant or more hopeful set of men than are the Home stead strikers at present. Not since the beginning of the present conflict have they been GO confident of success. Last week many of them were going around attired in their Sundry clothes and de spondent looks. They were beginning to feel that the battle was about as good as lost and the leaders experienced no little difficulty in keeping the discour aged ones in line. Lat it is different now. This sudden change in the situa tion was brought about by so many of the company's non-unionists deserting their posts. From the time the main •entrance to Fort Frick was- opened in the morning until it closed in the even ing men continued to leave the mills. Those who came out through the main gate Avere received with open arms by the strikers who conducted them to their headquarters two squares distant. Here were assembled all through the day several hundred idle steel workers and the arrival of each non-union man was the signal for cheers of the most en thusiastic kind. The deserters from the little mill of imprisoned workmen were provided with transportation to their homes, the majority of them being sent to Baltimore and Philadelphia. By 8 "o'clock p. m. all who left the works dur ing the day had been started on their homeward journey. Chairman Craw ford, of the advisory committee, says that over 150 men had come from the mill to the Amalgamated headquarters during the day and that over 400 have left the eompany's employ since Satur day. A VERDICT RENDERED. The Coroner's Jury at Homestead Fin ishes Its Labors. PITTSBURG, Aug. 4.—The inquest into the deaths resulting from the riots at Homestead has been concluded before Coroner McDowell. The jury was out about an hour before the verdict was returned. On the death of Silas Wayne the verdict states that he came to his death while in company of others in un lawful assembly upon the prop erty of the Carnegie, Phipps & Co.'s steel works, Mifflin township, to prevent the landing of two model barges loaded with Pinkerton guards to protect said property, and he being struck from a missile from a can non which had been taken by said un lawful assemblage to the Pittsburg side of the Monongahela river and discharged by them, striking and instantly killing the said Silas Wayne, and we recom mend the said unlawful assembly be certified to the September sessions of the grand jury." In the cases of three Pinkerton men similar returns were made in each. That of J. Connors states that it was caused from shock and exhaustion due to a gunshot wound in the right arm, he being shot by a ball from an unlawful assemblage. •. All Released. PITTSBURG, Aug. 5.—All the Carnegie and Pinkerton men for whom warrants were issued have waived examination, and have been released on $10,000 bail each. The Third Victim. ST.
