The Senate is Behind the House Witt

l..n Th Lata Secretary Wlndoiu'i
Vi:i Fllett-IU Left au Estate of173,
(00 to His Family Mr. Foster in
t'lia.'ce of lite Treasury Dspartmsnt.
Washington, Feb. 26 The Senate
adjourning upon the announcement of
the death of Senator Wilson, of Mary
land, chopped off one of the few remain
ing days left the Senate to transact the
business that it must get throuah with
before March 4 if an extra session is to
be avoided.
The Senate is much bohind the House
tn work upon appropriation bills. This
ondition of affairs has brought out re
newed predictions of an extra session
l'helr character is, however, purely
ipasmodic.
Mr. Allison, the chairman of the Sen
ate Appropriations Committee, and Mr.
Cannon, the chairman of the House
Committee, both say that while it would
require pretty sharp work to get through
the business, they had no doubt of such
a result being reached There will, how
ever, be involved in the reaching of this
end, night sessions of both Houses. Those
sessions commenced in the House last
night, and will commence in the Senate
to-night. By means of them, it is said,
la o'clock on the 4th of next March
will find Congress ready to adjourn.
The only business now possible out
side of the appropriation bills is the
Shipping bill, which was made a special
order for to-day and to-morrow. The
bill differs materially from the bill that
has heretofore passed the Senate.
The House bill will be abandoned, it
is said, and the Senate measure put ia
its stead. The House, it will be remem
bered, proposed to subsidize both steam
and sailing vessels. The Senate bill sub
sidizes only steam vessels.
There is no chance of the Copyright
bill being passed. Mr. Reed has it on
his dek in its amended form as it came
from the Senate, and refuses to appoint
conferrees.
MR. WINDOWS WILL.
The Lata Secretary's Family Lsft an Es
ta of About 1 75,000.
Washington, Feb. 20. A dispatch
from Minneapolis says that the will of
the late Secretary Windom has been
filed In the Probate Court at Winona.
The Instrument gives one-third of all
the testator's property and the family
residence, iu addition, to the widow.
The balance of the property is to be di
vided equally among the testator's three
children.
Mrs. Windom is named as executrix.
The gross value of the estate will be
from $150,000 to $175,000, which, when
all debts are paid, will probably yield an
annual income of $3,000.
Mr. Windom held an interest In the
Windom Block, in Minneapolis, and
owued land in the Red River Valley in
Dakota. He sold some of the land, notes
being taken in payment. In connection
with Senator Davis, Mr. Windom owned
some property in the coal regions of
West Virginia. Then he had a small
property in Colorado, and a little at
Rochester, Minn. He also held stock In
the Winona & Southwestern, the Green
Bay & Winona, and the St. Paul rail
ways.
Varvlees Over Senator Wilson's Remains.
Washington, Feb. 26. Services over
the body of Senator Wilson were held at
the Hamilton House at 10 o'clock this
morning. Rev. D. Bartlett, of the New
York Avenue Presbyterian Church, was
the officiating clergyman, assisted by
Dr. Butler, the chaplain of the Senate.
The services were brief, and at their con
clusion the body was taken under an es
cort of Capitol police to the Pennsyl
vania Railroad station, whence the fu
neral train left at 11 o'clock and will ar

home, this evening. The interment will
take place at Snow Hill to-morrow.

NO TARIFF ON MARRIAGES.
Etonian Couples Wltl Not Bo luterfrred
With for the Prvstnt.
Trenton, N. J., Feb. 24. Camden's
leputatlon as the Gretna Green of Penn
sylvania couples has beeu saved.
A school teacher at Cape May had a
bill introduced in the Legislature whiah
compelled the couples intending to marry
to go before the clerk of the Common Pleas
Court and swear to a lot of inconvenient
questions. They were to pay a tax, too.
Assemblyman William Cole, of Cam
den, rose to the rescue of the blushing
couples and the Camden clergymen. He
asserted that the bill restrained the
liberty of private citizens. Eloping
couples might do worse than go to Cam
den to get married. He protested
against taxing couples for what their
grandparents had done with impunity.
The bill was aimed at one of Camden's
best industries, and he didn't want the
industry of marriage interfered with.
Assemblyman Engard also defended
Camden, but Assemblyman Mullone, of
Hudson County, put himself on record
against the Gretna Green industry.
The result was the defeat of the bill by
just five votes.

Norwalk, Conn., Feb. 6. Miss Kit
tie Moore, accompanied by her fiance,
Alonzo W. Smith, walked into David R.
Swords's meat market last evening and
gave him a severe whipping with a
heavy rawhide whip.
The cause of Swords's chastisement
was that he was supposed to be the au
thor of an article which appeared iu a
local paper reflecting upon the character
of Miss Moore. ,
The only resistance made by Swords
was to seize a clever and threaten to
strike Smith if he should interfere. Miss
Moore is employed in Roth & Goldsmith's

known hatter.

OVER FORTY PEOPLE WOUNDEIX
The Cats Boll Down an Embankment and
Are Soon on Fire-
The Flames Ware Quickly Extinguished
All the Klllad Ware la the Fmoklag
Compartment of the Slesper The Train
Was Running at the Rate of Forty Silica
an B our When the Aeeldanc Occurred,
Richmond, Ind., Feb. 26. A terrible
accident occurred oa the Richmond
Division of the Pan Handle Railroad at
Hagerstown, 16 miles from this city, last
night, in which six persons were in
stantly killed, one mortally wounded,
two seriously, possibly fatally, and a
large number more or less injured.
It was the fast train between Chicago
and Cincinnati, which was coming down
a steep grade into the town, when the
framework of engine No. 494, lit charge
ot W. W. Bartlett, engineer, and Noah
Dunn, fireman, broke and derailed every
car. However, they passed the station
and came to the canal bridge, where
there is a 15-foot fall, and where it came
near proving even more terrible, as the
cars caught fire, but the flames were
quickly extinguished.
The smoker first turned on its side
and the day coach and parlor car Euge
nia, the smoking compartment of which
contained all the killed, breaking away
from the smoking car, but holding to
gether, rolled over twice.in their descent
of the embankment.
Meanwhile the derailed baggage car
had hung to the engine and away beyond
the other cars had struck a guard at the
road crossing, again mounted the track
and escaped almost uninjured, but the
engine, though holding the rail, was
about as badly wrecked as the parlor cat
and day coach.
The train was running at the rate Of
40 miles an hour and the cause of the ac
cident is in doubt.
So far as known the killed are: C. B.
Case, engineer; O. F. Deal, fireman;
George Needhara, attorney for the Pan
Handle, M. E. Reeves, president of the
First National Bank, Richmond, Ind.,
and two unknown men.
A later dispatch says there were over
40 persons wounded, several of whon
will die.
THE ENGINEERS READY.
If There Is a Strlbo on the Pannsylvanta
All ihe Trainmen Will Go Out.
Pittsburg, Pa., Feb. 26. The confer;
ence of the Pennsylvania officials to ar
range a schedule of wages is still in ses
sion, and will not adjourn until this af
ternoon. The men are awaiting the
company's proposition, and nothing
will be done until alter ft has been pre
sented. The company does not antici pate that
the new operative schedules will be sat
isfactory to all the men, for the reason
that the contemplated equalization will
reduce the pay of some of the men. This
may have the effect of creating differ
ences in the councils of the grievance
committees.
While the company appears to feel se
cure on the strike question the attitude
of the men is directly opposite. They
are as firm in their sentiments to-day,
even more so, than they were a week
go.
Forty engineers, representing the
Brotherhood enginemen of all the
Pennsylvania Railroad organizations,
have decided to act with the
other organizations in their efforts to
secure higher wages, ibis action was
declared at the engineers' conference
yesterday. It means that engineers,
firemen, conductors, trainmen and
swithmen on, the entire Bvsteru con
cerned will act as a unit.

remarkable spectacle in the funeral of
the Coles woman, otherwise known as
"Carroty Nell," whose murder has cre
ated such excitement. The woman.
who could not have mustered half a
dozen friends before the tragedy, was
followed to the grave by an enormous
multitude of mourners. The crowd
made an angry demonstration against
the police, whom they seemed to regard
as in some way responsible for the crime,
or at least for not having captured
"Jack tne Kipper" Deiore ue naa ciaimea
so many victims, ine woman s comn
was deluged with flowers. It was with
difficulty that the polios prevented s
. serious demonstration of popular anger.

Toronto. Feb. 20. Sir Richard Cart

previously supplied the same Kiel with
funds, through Archbishop Tache, to
enable him to live in comfort in the

An Appeal for Votes to Hade by the
Quebec Bishops on Sunday.
Ottawa, Feb. 26. On Sunday next Sir
John Macdonald will play his trump
card in the Quebec section of his'colossal
contest.
It is stated on reliable authority that
the Roman Catholic Church has as yet
only sounded the first note, and that a
collective pastoral letter signed by all
the archbishops and bishops in Quebec,
defining their attitude, will be read in
all the Catholio churches of the province
on Sunday. It is believed that this let
ter will powerfully influence the .whole
Catholic electorate of the province.
It is also claimed that every Conserva
tive candidate will be authorized to as
sure his supporters that after the elec
tions, and within the statutory time, the
legislation of the Manitoba Assembly re
garding separate schools in that prov
ince and the dual language question will
be disallowed. This is said to be the
price the church has demanded for it
support of the government.
