Washington, February 10, SKNATIv.
The resolution herctofinv offered bv
Mr. Chnntller calling on the uttornrv
L'cncrnl ftir infbrrmition of the nssnssinn'
tion of W. U. Siiiinders, tlrpiity I'nitc
Stntcs marshal in the northern district
of Florida, was taken up, and Mr. I'nsco
proceeded to itddreiis the scnute in expla
nation of the acts and circumstances of
the case.
Mr. Pasco hud not concluded his re
marks when the hour of 2 o'clock ur
rived, and the educational bill came up
as "unnntsiieri nustness. Air. iiintr.
however, yielded the floor to Mr. Wilson,
of Iowu, on whose motion the senate
hill appropriating $100,000 for the pub
lic litiildiuR nt Fort DodRe, Iowa, was
taken from the calendar nnd passed, Mr.
Call cnlliniT attention to the fnct that
this was the fourth public building bill
passed for Iowa nt this session.
On motion of Mr. Slcukbride, the
senate bill appropriatittfr $UH,nH) for
public building at l.niisinj;, Mich., was
taken from the calendar and pnssctl.
Mr. llliur then resumed his argument
in favor of the educational bill. Incitlrn
ttdlv to the sentence occurring in the re
uort of the democratic smicrintcudcnt of
COllClllinn in ieorj;i". .lr- "loir iinneu
why should not the bill la-come it law.
The republican l.nrty, he tiiid, was
pledged to it. Ninny able nnd dislin
Kitishcd demKTts were in fit vor of it.
President Ilnrrison had declined the
necessity of providim; for popular educa
tion as this bill did. There was nothiin,'
to hinder it, he said, except the opHi
tion of those who buildup in this coun
try un oiKisitiR Hvstem the prncticnl
school system to the destruction of tin
schools of the country. lie spoke ol
those who "me enjjUK'd in secret and in
nien machinations OKninst the bill, and
who comprehend how, if this bill posses,
it will jfjve the jrcnt future of the repub
lic to nubile schools." I
While it Interferes, he said, with t'.c
rights of no one, while it. die not inlir
lere with those who claim n mrmlK-rsh'p
of len millions, it i. nevertheless un as
sertion by the nntiim of its will to edit
cnte their children in lite public iion-sc-tionnl
schools. Hut mote of that here
after, if ncccssarv. Occnsionally I inn
obliged to let out it little which Hilicy
ohliKftme Kcnernlly to suppress. Tins
bill, il it is to fail, will have lieen killed
bv packed committees, individual mem
bers of which have been threatened by
annthtnins from their church if they ven
ture to support it, and I Hive notice to
those who proMiseto kill this bill by in
direction nnd by fraud, and by tricks un
worthy of any other lobby around the
capitol, that they have blows to receive
as well at Mows to Rive.
This country is not to be Riven over to
those who would teach civil allegiance
elsewhere than within our own borders.

masses of that same body of American
citizens are true to the ling, and do not
proXse to elect n president who resides
on the Iwinks of the Tiber.
Taking up the report of the school
superintendent in Tennessee, Mr. Hlnir
remarked, in n tone of sarcasm, that he
supposed that the senators from that
Stute would lie in the chamber in a week
or two. At all events all he said would
be in the record, no matter what the
press ditl. The senate had a record that
was a glorious little ptiier of their own.
If tie should be returned to the tennte for
the next thirtv or forty yenrt he niennt
to make an etTort to have the Congres
sionnl Record distributed to the people
of the I nlled Btules Rratujlotisly, to the
numhrr of at least Simi.oho. The senate
needed a paper. If it published a utier
itself, unil circuluUd it gratuitously, it
could reach the people with the truth
hut not until then.
The private press, said be. Unit runs
only lor ils own emolument, nnd hns to
muke money, nnd Unit Ira vet out most
of the truth, cseciHlly if it it unpnlitn
hie, is n poor press to relv upon, This
great American press ol ours is the
source of more mischief in thit country
than there would lie if we had no press
at all, There may come a time when n
dog light will not be mure important, in
the opinion of this press, than the great
school bill; but that time hat not been
reached.
Coming buck to the statement which
he hnd been about to rend nt to the con
dition of the public schools in Tennessee,
he expressed the wish that tome page
would notify the Tennessee senators ol
what he was going to read. H is remarks
having lieen suspended no us to ullow the
message tn be received from the house.
Mr. Hlnir expressed the hope that he
would not be interrupted nny more by
such small matters. (Laughter.)
Mr. Dolph asked him if he would yield
for a motion for an executive session and
Mr. Blair replied: Oh! no, unless I am
obliged to; I have got only two dnys
left. The executive session seems to
come with unaccountable frequency nt
this time. We Had two of them yester
day. 1 hope tlie tennte will not pre
thut motion now, what 1 am saying is
ton interesting. (Laughter.
Mr. Ihilph did not insist on the motion
fur an executive session nnd Mr. Illalr
went on with the reading of the reKirt,
nnd letters at to the illiteracy in the
South, commenting upon tbrni as he
went along. Finally at 4.4.1 he yielded
far Mr. iKilph't motion, anil lifter an ex
ecutive trssmu the senate nt ft.MO ad

San Francisco. Fcbrunrv 19. A syn
dicate, among whom arc I. W. llellmnn,
l.os Angeles; hclioll llns , of bun Fran
cisco, nnd Levy Strnuss, of New York,
have acquired the controlling interest in
t he Nevada Hunk, of this city. The own
ership of this hank, since the delh of the
lute j nines C. Flood, has been entirely
held by John W. Mnckuy, James L. Flood
and Senator James (..'Fair. The syndi
cate will have control ot rive ffixthsnf the
capital slock, which is $3,000,000, leav
ing one-sixth, or $."00,0tHI, which will be
retained by Muckay and Flood. It is un
derstood that Mnckny, Flood and F'nir
simply wanted to be relieved of the re
sponsibility necessary in thcmnnugcmeiit
of the bank, so their time could lie de
voted to other mutters.
Incendiary Flrca at Rocky Mount.
Kalkioh, X. C. February 19. News
was received here to-dav of a series of in
cendiary fires at Ktcky Mount. The
trouble seems to hare grown out of some
unpleasantness in connection with the ne
groemigrntion matter. On Monday night
the extensive carriage works of Hackney
llros. were distroyed by fire of incendiary
origin. Last night the building at the
fair grounds at Rocky Mount were fired
by negroes, thcobject being, it is thought,
to draw a crowd there from the town,
that the work nf destruction might lie
completed. No further trouble occurred,
however, but the town is thoroughly
patrolled as other incendiary work is
hourly apprehended.
A Technical Cane F-alnbllahed.
Aitit STA, (la., Felirunry 19. The tak
ing of testimony before I'nited States
Commissioner Alexander in the case
against citincns of Sharon, tin., ehnrged
with conspiracy against and intimida
tion of Postmaster Duckworth was con
cluded today. All the material facts
have been published. The record will
probably establish a technical ensdi
against the accused; but in view ol the
fact, that no personal violence was done
to Postmaster Duckworth, and thnt he
hns lieen unmolested in the discharge nf
the duties of bit office, it is thought
thnt the case niuv be dismissed at the
April term nf the I'nited States court to
be held in Augusta.
Hat's Cotton Review.
Nkw Vonk, Februnry 19. The Sun's
cotton review tnyt:
"Futures opened quite buoyantly on
stronger turn to Liverpool futures, al
though spots there continued dull and
Manchester account showed no im
provement. At 11.37. li'r August, the
reaction set in, but in the Inst half hour
when small receipts at ports were as
sured, there was renewed buying,
which restored the market to nearly the
best figures of to-day. Although the in
terior movement thawed pretty full fig

The I'nhappy Poaltlon of a Man
Who Wanted a Drink.
Ciiaki.otth, N. C, February 19. A
peculiar case is to-night reported from
Surry county. Joseph Hill, a farmer,
was passing near the store of W. W.
Brown yesterday when he heard strange
cries. The noises were strunuelv muffled.
but could be distinguished ui culls of
"Murder," "nre," "Help, etc. He
thought it was some female in distress
and wat sometime in locating the strange
noise. At Inst he found it proceeded from
the stack-chimney in the centre of the
store. The proprietor wuRBcnUiir. I'non

esterdnv's mail brought me a letter
from Henry Holler, of Hurllctt. N. Dak.,
who is chairman of n local relief com
mittee, and who writes ns follows con
cerning the distress of the farmers in that
community: "in seven counties of our
new Slate there has been for two years
in succession almost a total failure of
crops, so much so that it did not pay to
Harvest t hem. and tins year there are tlioti-
saads of acre that were never cut. For
instance, I sowed 200 acres in grain and
got of wheat only fifty bushels, potatoes
mo nusnera, and ot outs anil luirlcv
nothing. Now, wltcn you consider that
most ot tne lurmers here nave nut small
means and have been without an income
for two years, but with necessary out
lays for tfint time, you can form a pretty
accurate idea of our condition. Our
Stnte government cannot assist us, ns
it is already indebted tnr beyond the con

sharks, in many instances tlie press,
have combined to conceal our true con
