THE COTH CONGRESS AT WORK Sk.nate. Eighth day. The session lasted only half an hour and no busi ness was done beyond the introduc tion of bills. Among- these was one by Mr. Allen, of Nebraska, to repeal the civil service laws and to do away with education tests as a preliminary to en tering the public service. House The third day of the tariff debate developed some red hot opposition and equally as strong defens'. ! Sk.natk. Ninth day.--The Senate held a half hour open session and then after two hours in executive session on the urbitration treaty, resumed the open session, in order to go on with the bankruptcy bill, but no action was taken. Hoisk. The general debate on the tariff bill was closed and it was left open for amendment during1 the next four days under the five minute rule. Sknatk. Tenth da'. Another brief discussion of the civil service occurred during the open session. Mr. Gal linger presented several forms issued by the civil service commission, to sub stantiate his recent statement that certain applicants for office were re quired to hop on fo )t for 12 feet. A resolution was adopted asking the 1 'resident for information as to the death of two American soldiers at San tiago de Cuba; also resolutions asking the attorney-general for information of any proposition to sell the Union Pacific railroad. A memorial from the Michigan legislature was presented by Mr. McMillan protesting against the executive order at the close of the last administration, consolidating pension agencies and, in effect, abolishing the agency at Detroit. Three hours were spent in executive session on the arbi tration treaty. HotsK. The debate and amendment under the five-minute rule covered everything from free soap to trusts and polities. Eleventh day. No session of the Senate. liorsK. The continuation of the tariff debate. Sknatk. Twelfth day. The follow ing nominations were received from the President: Charlemagne Tower, of Pennsylvania, to be envoy extraordi nary and minister plenipotentiary to to Austria-Hungary; Anson Burlin game Johnson, of Colorado, to be consul at Fuchan, China; Win.

Thomas Kyan, of Arkansas, to be first assistant secretary of the interior; Henry Clay Evans, of Tennessee, to be commis sioner of pensions. Before the consid eration of the arbitration treaty was resumed several resolutions were in troduce: By Mr. Pettigrew, of South DaUoU'. asking the secretary of the interior-vor the reason for President Cleveland's sweeping order establish ing extensive forest reserves.

Mr. Hoar, from the judiciary committee, reported favorably the bill to prevent kinetoseopo. exhibitions of prize fights in the District of Columbia and the territories and to prohibit the ship ping of material for the exhibition. IIoI'sk. The tariff debate goes merrily on without an startling features. During the day liep. Spalding, of Michigan, introducd a joint resolution providing for the annexation of Hawaii to the Unitt-d States. I'owrri May Illockade all Grecian 1'orts. The ministers of the powers held a conference at Athens, and, it is stated, drew up the terms of a collective note to the Greek government requesting that the Greek troopr be recalled from the frontier. It is understood that a similar note will be presented to Tur key, and that if either power refuses its principal ports will be blockaded. A dispatch from Vienna says the Austrian foreign office has proposed to extend the blockade along the entire Greek coast, with special stringency at the Piraeus and the gulfs of Volo, Corinth and Arta. ItritUh Will Nut Help Blockade (ireece. Athens: The Grecian government learns that Great Britain refuses to take part in a blockade of Greece, though she has no objections to such a measure taken by the other powers. Great Britain has also declined to be a party to the starving of innocent Cre tans in the interior of the Island of Crete, and it is sal I that British ships ships intend to run the blockade, con tending that it is indefensible under international law inasmuch as neither Turkey nor (Jreece has openly de clared war. The Iron Ore Tool Ilreaka Up. The meeting of the Bessemer iron association, known as the iron ore pool, was held at Cleveland, and the associa tion was formally dissolved. The big interests of the Mesaba range, the Kockfeller-Carnegie interest and the Minnesota Iron company were unable to agree. This means lower prices for ore and a greater production than would have prevailed if all the com panies were included in the pool. Authentic details of the outbreak at Toka, in the Sivas district of Asia Minor, when the Turks attacked the Armenians while the latter were in church, show that 100 Christians were massacred. The Armenian quarter and the bazars were given over to pil lage for eight hours. A treaty has been agreed to between the Transvaal republic and Orange Free State in South Africa which give the burghers of each state the fran chise in either republic, and the two republics agree to support one another in case of attack. ITEMS OF NEWS. IMPORTANT AND INTERESTING MATTERS IN BRIEF. King fleorgo of 2reere fiaya the Fowfri are Driving Greece to War Against Turkey Has Ills 3Ilal Made l'p and Will Not Stand a IJlockade. King George Would go to War. A New York Journal correspondent at Athens secured an interview with King George of Greece in which the king said: ''The great powers should take warn ing before it is too late. The Greek nation cannot endure this state of af fairs much longer, and the situ ation will become uncontrollable. The world has never witnessed such a spectacle as six powerful nations acting in the name of Christian civili zation, surrounding an island with their warships, and starving a noble Christian people, whose only offense is that that they have fought for their liberty. While doing this, the nations are feeding and upholding their sav age Turkish oppressors.1 The lines in the king's face grew herd and his big brown eyes Hashed, while the veins stood out with painful distinctness in his temples, his lips trembled, and his voice shook with emotion, as he said: "It Is hard to restrain the natural impulse of the Greek army, to vindi cate the honor of their flag, and to pre vent an advance on the Turkish forces which threaten our northern frontier. Now it is said that the powers are threatening to blockade Volo, the naval base of our forces in Thcssaly. It would be an infamous thing to do while the Turkish army menaces our territory. If it is done, it will be use less to attempt to hold our troops back any longer, and I will order them to go forward. My mind is made up." War Keeiim Inevitable. Atliens: Crown Prince Constantine, who has been chosen to take command of the Greek forces on the frontier, started for Volo. An immense demon stration was made before the palace previous to his departure. Constitu tion square and streets adjacent were filled with an excited throng, cheering and singing patriotic songs. The pop ulace shouted "for union and war," and cheered continually for the crown prince and the army. An immense throng, including many thousands of Cretans, assembled on the quays at Piraeus, brilliantly illuminated by lime lights from houses in the vicinity, to witness the embarkation. The wildest enthusiasm was displayed. A deputa tion presented to the crown prince a copy of the resolutions which were adopted at a public meeting, declaring that the people of Athens and the Piraeus were faithful interpreters of the sympathies of the nation, which was ready to make any sacrifice of... WooiV-AmtMiey4 in - tfiti" CST.li'oT Cretoth Crown Prince Constantine replied as follows: "Have confidence in me. I know my duty. Best assured 1 shall acquit myself like a soldier.' It is officially stated that the ques tion of declaring war depends upon the present negotiations with the pow ers. No man on the streets of Athens believes this, all accepting the depart ure of the crown prince as indicating that (ireece has come to a definite de finite decision to go to war. That the departure of the crown prince is really a serious matter was evinced by the touching farewells of the king and queen. The crown princess accompa nied him as far as Larissa, and during the passage of the Eripos canal Prince George joined them for a short time to bid his brother adieu. An Athens dispatch says: It is stated on the best of authority that war may be expected to break out at any time, most probably near Arta. The Greek military preparations go on unceas ingly on a large scale. At Salonica the officials do not con ceal their belief in the probability of war. They are enthusiastic, but not fanatical. The work of mobilization proceeds rapidly. Should war break there is little doubt that Greece will do her best to remain on the defensive on the land, but will take the offensive at sea, with a view to capturing the Islands in the Aegean sea. The Turkish camp at Elassona Is re garded as the key to Macedonia and is being very strongly Intrenched. A well equipped hospital has been estab lished at Salonica by the Turks. Field hospitals have been established at Elassona, Monastir, .Jumna and other points. It is reported that an advance of the Turkish army is imminent. Fresh divisions are mobilizing at Pre vesa and Katrina. The consuls are quitting the frontier districts. Ilein forcements continue to arrive from Feredjek. Over 70,000 Turkish troops are now on the frontier. A thousand horses with tons of provisions, tents and ambulances are going forward, to gether with siege artillery and 10,000 Martini rifles. The Turkish squadron has left the Dardanelles, part of the ships proceed ing to Smyrna and the remainder to Salonica. A dispatch from Home says the offi cials of the foreign office consider that war between Turkey and Greece is in evitable. The members of the diplomatic corps at St. Petersburg now greatly appre hend serious complications in Macedo nia which will jeopardize the peace of Europe. The Exchange bank of Edmore has closed its doors. Inability to realize quickly on assets is the cause. It is be lieved that the bank will open again. James O'Brien, Clarence Shafer and Michael O'Donnell, three well-known young men, were arrested at Escanaba, charged with the hold-up and robbery of John Poulvey. The crime and ar recU created considerable excitement. MICHIGAN'S LEGISLATORS. The largest petition yet presented to the legislature was delivered to the House. It was 63 feet long and con tained 0.C00 names petitioning for the passage of the bill to permit each county to employ 20 state convicts in road making. The bill was under con sideration for some tira and was fi nally made the special order for March 31. The anti-lynching bill was laid on the table in the House. The Grand Rapids charter bill, which has con sumed so much time in the House, and which was the cause of a contest Ikj tween the city and country districts of Kent county over their respective rep resentation on the board of supervis ors, was finally passed, the country people having conceded half of the board to the city. The Eikhoff bill, preventing the payment of employes in anything but money or its ready equivalent, was killed in the House. Hep. Eikhoff made a hard fight for it. The following bills were passed by the House: (S. B. 38i) Authorizing Sand Beach to issue waterworks bonds; (H. B. 53) amending truancy law so as to allow city superintendents of schools to excuse children over 14 years of age from attendance as required by law; (II. B. 239) for the suppression of mob violence; (II. B. 84) providing for treat ment of indigent curable children at the U. of M. at the expense of the state; (H. B. 83) providing for free an alysis of water by the U. of M. The Senate passed the following: (S. B. 1U0) prohibiting the adulteration of vinegar and prescribing what shall be pure vinegar; (S. B. 8S) for incor poration of mutual integrity compa nies to insure integrity of employes and agents; (S. B. 07) appropriating S.",000 for the Mackinac Island state park; (S. B. 197) providing that unexpended balances of appropriations shall be transferred to the general fund; (S. J. K. 14) to restore Fort Mackinac to the United States when the government shows a willingness to regarrison the same. . Gov. Pingrec's enemies in the Senate took occasion to again criticise and abuse him at the first opportunity, which came when Senator Co veil's bill came up, in committee of the whole, to compel the governor to make ap pointments to vacanies in state offices during the session of the state legisla ture that the Senate may act upon them. Senator Covell termed Gov. Pingree "the worst demagogue in the state," while Senator Thompson called him an "anarchist" of the Most or Alt geld style. Senators Moore and Mudge protested against such talk, but the bill finally passed. Other bills passed by the Senate: (S. B. 2'.) Preventing male and female persons over l." years of age from debauching the person and depraving the morals of boys under 15 years of age; (S. B. 2S) fixing the legal rate of interest at 5 per cent, contract rate at 8 per cent, and providing that banks shall not pay more than 4 per interest on money; (H. B. 1 8 ) provid ing for the use of pencil instead of aVber stamps in votiiar- intlus; flJ. JL., 480) amending the law relative to the repair of buildings owned by the state and damaged by fire, so that the state auditors may promptly repair the same; (H. B. 104) requiring a two-thirds vote for bonding Delta county for 8175,000 for a system of roads; (H. B. 107) providing that town ship officers shall le citizens of the United States and electors. Michigan will not be officially repre sented at the Tennessee Centennial ex position, as the bill appropriating $7,500 for a Michigan exhibit was killed in the House. "ills passed by the House: (II. B. 70S) Amending the law requiring the display of the U. S. Hag upon school buildings, making it dis cretionary; (H. B. 870) requiring an in ventory annually by all banks of their assets to be filed with the commissioner of banking; (II. J. II. 11) for the relief of Margaret I lei lies, for the death of her son who was killed while on duty in the M. N. G. during the miners' strike at Ishpeming in 1'J5. Gov. Pingree sent his first veto to the Senate in connection with the bill to punish any person, except members of the G. A. II. in good standing, who wears a O. A. II. badge. His message was very "warm," and bore particu larly upon the argument that many old soldiers have fallen behind in their dues through misfortune and stress of circumstances which they could not control. The governor said: "I look upon tli is bill as an attempt to collect dues through a criminal statute, and to punish the unfortunate ami poor who have no criminal intentions. I will not Ik a party to such ingratitude on the part of the state.'1 The bill for the use of the 508,000 in the Soo canal fund to build a marine hospital at the Soo was defeated in the Senate after a hard fight lasting three hours. Hep. (Capt.) A. E. Stewart, of Wayne, ap peared in the House and was heartily congratulated upon his nomination for mayor of Detroit. He was called upon for a speech nnd was escorted to the speaker's platform amidst the biggest demonstration of the present session. The House killed the bill to constitute the county clerk, county treasurer and probate judge a board of auditors in each county and also a board to apportion township taxes. The House passed several local bills and one pro viding for stamping boots and shoes made wholly or In part of imitation leather. The House committee on agriculture favor a SO, 000 appropriation for nn agricultural experiment station in the upper peninsula. State Senator Bostwick has asked the Senate to instruct Michigan's dele gation in congress to work for the pas sage of a postal savings bank system In the United States. Hep. Weier, of Monroe, heaped coals of fire upon the heads of his colleagues who made fun of his bill for a longer open muskrat season, by giving a muskrat dinner to 100 legislators at the Hudson house. The Senate refused to pass the bll permitting the practice of osteopathy in Michigan, and owing to the lack of a quorum devoted their time to the consideration of bills in the committee of the whole. The House passed the following: (II. B. 778) Allowing the vil lage of Yale to borrow money and is sue bonds for water works; (H. B. 150) providing for the annual publication of the proceedings f the boards of edu cation or school trustees in graded school districts, also, an Itemized state ment of receipts and expenditures for the year; (II. B. 310) for the incorpora tion of temperance volunteer associa tions; (II. B. 510) amending the pure food law bo as to prohibit the posses sion of substitute articles of food with intent to sell. The approaching spring election takes all the interest out of the legis lative proceedings. The record of the accomplishments of one day's session consists of two bills of minor import ance passed by the Senate, and six or eight measures agree to in committee of the whole of each branch. .The most interesting occurrence in the House was the killing of liep. O'Dett'e bill providing that no county or town ship officer should be eligible to more than two consecutive terms of office. The House committee on education has reported favorably on the bill ap propriating 510,000 for the mainten ance of a state normal school in the upper peninsula, a site and buildings to be donated to the state. liep. Sawyer has a plan to shorten the legislative session. He would have committees grant hearings on bills only where there is a question as to the merits of the bill. Cuba I Lout to Spain. A special correspondent at Havana declares that Cuba is lost to Spain. He says that resident Spaniards confess they can see no other outcome. In fact, evidences that Cuba may in the end be freed by Spanish residents themselves are many and strong. The calmest minds there predict the end of Spanish rule within a year. The prop osition of President Cisneros and Gen. Gomez sent through Mr. Scovel, to buy the island, is rapidly growing in popu larity. Its warmest advocates are Spanish residents. They are the act ive, financial and business men of the island, the owners of eight-tenths of its wealth and its sources of wealth. On them the loss of the war has fallen most heavily. Few Cubans had any thing to lose. The merchants, money changers, speculators, exporters . and planters, are beginning to realize that Cuba is lost. Once let these men be convinced that Spain cannot end the struggle within a reasonable time and they will use their influence to bring about a sale and will help the Cubans to estab lish a republic. The Spanish element is condemning with more and more emphasis the fruitless, exhausting policy of (Jen. Weyler. They see his idea of pacifica tion is depopulation: his plan for peace devastation. It ik v.V.l understood that many thousands of troops will soon be withdrawn from Cuba for ser vice in the Phillipines. . meanwhile the rebels are stronger than ever be fore. They are triumphant over Gen. Weyler in Santa Clara province and feel certain of victory as lie can only sustain the fight until the rainy season. The insurgents have captured Hoi quin, in Santiago de Cuba. The town is a very important one and the news of its loss has cast great gloom over official circles. It is reported that the victorious insurgent forces were those under the command of Calixto Garcia, who has been operating with great vigor in eastern Cuba. A train carrying Spanish troops was blown up by dynamite while passing over a deep gorge south of Candelaria, Pinar del liio province, and nearly 250 soldiers were killed or injured. The locomotive and six cars were demol ished, and 300 soldiers, including IS officers, were made prisoners. The duke of Leeds has been chosen to succeed the earl of Aberdeen as governor-general of Canada. THE MARKETS. MVK STOCK. New York- Hest grades... Lower grades. Chicago Host grades... Lower grades.
