The senators failed to get the joint resolution, to raise their salaries to 8000 a session, through but the vote was reconsidered and the resolution laid on the table to Iks taken up again later on. The bill to permit the practice of osteopathy was passed by tho Senate as were the following measures: For the protection of side paths constructed for the use of bicyclists; providing a penalty for neglect to have the stars and stripes displayed outside or within public school buildings. Pills passed by the House: Kestonng Fort Mackinac to the United States, and authorizing the Mackinac Island State park com mission to convey the fort site, which includes 400 feet of . land around and contiguous to it; providing for plugging abandoned salt wells, exempting only those where fresh water is Injected into the salt bed, and exempting all of Huron county; limiting the realty hold ings of corporations formed from leas ing and selling real estate to 400 acres; requiring administrators, executors and guardians to file accounts at least once a year; to prevent the adultera tion of baking powders; authorizing board of supervisors to reduce the nuralter of road commissioners to two. The Senate refused to dictate to the U. S. congress what legislation it should consider, by killing Senator Postwick's measure calling upon Mich igan's delegation in congress to favor a law for the establishment of a postal savings bank system by the govern ment. The following bills were pass ed, however: Limiting the liability of hotel keepers upon the baggage and valuables of guests; repealing the law allowing prison authorities to sell tick ets of admission to their institutions; providing a penalty for the giving of false information to school census enumerators; for service upon corpora tions of a process issued from the cir cuit court; for the use of any thor oughly tested voting machine in elec tions of the state; for the bonding of the village of Vale for water works. The most of the business transacted in the House was in committee of the whole and the most important matter there considered was the oleomargarine bill, which was agreed to.and which provides a penalty for the coloring of butter sub stitutes in imitation of butter. The House passed the following bills: Au thorizing the use at elections of any thoroughly tested voting machines; authorizing (Irand Ilapids to bond for 8300,000 for improving the navigation of (Irand river; restricting the size of nets used for fishing in the Clinton river to 12 feet square. .With only 17 Senators present the upper house of the state legislature passed the following bills, but at tempted very little other business: At taching Isle Poyale to the county of Keweenaw; amending the laws so that street cars need not come to a full stop before crossing steam railroad tracks where interlocking switches are used; providing that the lowest step of the railroad car platform must not be higher than 12 inches above the ais; authorizing Lake Linden to purchase property for a water works. The House passed the oleomargerine bill by a vote of .10 to 10, but an attempt will be made by Its opponents to reconsider it. Other bills passed by the House: To prohibit children under 10 from being on the streets, parks or alleys in cities and incorporated villages after 8:30 o'clock at night; to prevent the intro duction of San Jose scale or other in jurious insects or infectious diseases of trees, vines or plants; authorizing the board of state auditors to investi gate ami settle any claims found to be due the county of Alpena airainst the state; to regulate and license the busi ness of hawking and peddling goods, wares and merchandise in the several townships and villages of the state. This is a specimen of the proceedings a week-end session of the Senate. Twenty members present; Senator Loomis read the twenty-third Psalm and repeated the Lord's prayer; a reso lution passed authorizing payment of a bill of 81.30 for mineral water used in the Senate during March; Senator Parnum given leave of absence for one week by a unanimous vote; adjourned for four days. The House accomplished something more than this, but there were many evidences of a feverish haste to get through the business on hand and get away. Pills passed by the House: Authorizing street railway companies to do a suburban express business and to carry the same through cities between 8 p. m. and 8 a. m. with out permission of common councils, and to carry in the day time, under such regulations as common councils may prescribe; authorizing the govern ing bodies of religious societies to re ceive up to 830,000 by gift or request, when tlie same is to be invested and the income derived therefrom applied to the payment of the salaries of clergy, provided none of the money is loaned on real estate at more than half the value of the realty; prohibiting circuit judges or their law part ners from practicing law In the state; giving state factory inspectors power to inspect elevators and requiring all factories to furnish proper wash rooms and dressing rooms for employes. (Iov. Pingree sent in a message vetoing the Flint charter bill. He said that lie had received petitions aggregating 1,000 names of electors of Flint asking him not to sign the bill and it seemed to him to show plainly the need of a home rule bill such as Is embodied in the Lusk-(ordon bill now before the legislature. I'lngree HUM Opposed. The House committee on railroads had a whole day's discussion on whether or not to pigeonhole the im portant bills known as Pingree bills. It was finally decided to report unfa vorably three measures, viz: For a flat two cent passenger rate on all rail roads; for the local taxation of rail roads; providing that every passenger and shipper shall be entitled to the lowest rate made to any one, whether It Iks for a mileage book passenger rate or a rebate freight rate.

The admirals were discussing the details and suddenly the whole matter is again adjourned for several Jays, while M. Hanotaux produces his mysterious plan. The French foreign minister has assured King (Jeorgo that there is no immediate prospect of a blockade, and has lagged him not to take action. Nobody here has the slightest notion of what the hitch is. Denmark will Help (ireece. Copenhagen: The consultations be tween the members of the Danish royal family have resulted In a resolution to uphold the present dynasty in Greece. The dowager czarina will remain here until the end of the month. A special cipher telegraphic service has been es tablished between Copenhagen and St. Petersburg and It is believed that the dowager czarina has succeeded in in ducing the czar to support King George as far is consonant with the interests of Iiussia. Modern Mutilate Dead Christian. Canea: As the result of a fight here six Christians were killed and 11 wounded. The bodies of the dead were savagely mutilated by Mussul mans. The garrison of Canea was under arms all night long and the town was strictly patrolled because of fears of Incendiarism. King !eorjje Still Threatens War. London: A dispatch from Vienna says it is no secret that King George has formally stated to the powers that a declaration of war airainst Turkey will immediately follow an extension of the blockade to the Greek coast. This fact cannot be left out of consid eration. It is believed in some quar ters that if the Gulf of Athens is block aded, popular excitement will compel the king to declare war, even if his own judgement and that of the cabinet were opposed. This has been a lead ing cause of the delay in securing a unanimous agreement between .the powers. 50 DEAD, 200 INJURED. A Terrible C'yelnne, Followed hy I Ire, I Caum-H Awful Devastation. A terrific cyclone has turned Chan dler, Okla., a peaceful town of 1,500 in habitants into a veritable morgue and its principal business buildings and residences lay wrecked in all direc tions. The death list is estimated at 50, with the injured numbering as high as 200. The cyclone struck Chandler without warning about 0 p. m. Its work of carnage began before the inhabitants realized their danger and hardly any means of escape was left open. Pusi ness houses and dwellings were lifted high into the air, and tossed in every direction, and piling the debris high in the streets. Many of the wrecks took fire and burned themselves out, several still smouldering when morning broke over the town. Every building but one on the main street was wrecked and burned. The night was one of indescribable terror. With many of its inhabitants dead or dying and the remainder too badly injured, or unable from fright, or because of the darkness, to render assistance, little better order than bed lam lire vailed. Finally when an elTort to send for aid was made it was found that all communication with the out side world had been cut off. The tele phone office was among the buildings destroyed. It was several hours be fore communication with Guthrie was secured. (Sen. Hit era, Maeeo'n Successor Captured. Havana: A force of Spanish troops under Gen. Hernandez Velasco left San Cristobal, Pinar del Ilio province, and at Perico Pozo encountered a small in surgent force entrenched, under com mand of Gen. Puis Pivera, the succes sor of the late Gen. Maceo. The in surgents opened fire and the Spanish infantry moved upon the trenches under cover of the artillery, and one company of cavalry galloped forward, capturing the trenches and seizing as prisoners five men who lay there wounded. Col. P.icallao, on learning that Pivera was one of the wounded, hurried to the trenches and begged the soldiers not to kill him. Pivera was taken into the presence of Gen. Velasco. The larger portion of the insurgents escaped. It is reported that Chicago anarchists are preparing for a campaign of vigor ous systematic agitation such as pre cceded the Haymarket riots. The U. S. flagship Philadelphia with Pear-Admiral Peardslee has been or dered to Honolulu to protect American Interests. The Japanese residents In Hawaii are In a state of revolution against the Hawaiian government and serious trouble Is feared. An attempt was made to destroy Al toon a, Pa., four Incendiary fires be ing kindled In different parts of the city within two hours. Prompt work by the fire department alone saved the town from possible destruction. The entire loss, however, will aggregate 800,000. The northern portion of South Da kota was flooded by heavy rains. At Faulkton the home of Geo. Peck swept away and Peck drowned. Hundreds of families had to leave their homes at Aberdeen, and there was much damage at Mitchell, Castle wood, Prookings, Vioux Falls and other points. THE 65TH CONGRESS AT WORK Senate 13th day The first tariff epeech of tho session was made by Sen ator Allen, of Nebraska, who protested against the promulgation of a tariff beyond the tax needed for revenue. The House amendments to the Senate joint resolution appropriating 8250,000 for tho saving of life and property along the Mississippi river, were agreed to and the resolution now goes to the President. The Cuban question was brought forward by Mr. Morgan, of Alabama, who presented a resolution requesting the President to inform the Senate whether letters had been re ceived by the present and former chief executive from Gen. Maximo Gomez, commander of the revolutionary army In Cuba. Tho resolution also asks whether the Spanish authorities in Cuba have refused to allow cipher dis patches to be transmitted between the U. S. consul at Sagua la Grande and the U. S. consul-general at Havana. The usual executive session to consider the arbitration treaty was held. House The continuation of the tariff debate occupied the daj , Senat e. Fou r te e n t h d ay. Prac t Ic ally the whole day was spent In execu tive sess'on on the arbitration treaty. There was very little debate and the time was devoted to voting on amend ments, only two of which were adopted, viz: Py Mr. Hoar "Any dif ference which, in the judgment of either power, materially affects its honor or its domestic or foreign policy, shall not be referred to arbitration un der this treaty except by special agree ment; nor shall any question as to the continuance In force of any treaty which has previously been made. It is further explicitly specified and agreed that all agreement entered into by the contracting parties under this treaty shall be signed by the President of the United States and receive the approval of the Senate by a two-thirds vote be fore it becomes binding upon either Great Pritain or the United States." Py Mr. Foraker Amendments to each article providing for a tribunal of arbi tration and declaringthateach case sub mitted to arbitration must be tried by a separate tribunal. The arbitrators appointed by the United States to be nominated by the President and con firmed by the Senate. An amendment introduced by Mr. Mills, expunging the last half of atticle 0 of the treaty invoking the good offices of other powers before resorting to war in case of failure to reach an agree ment under the terms of the treaty, was lost by a close margin. Sen ator Hansbrough gave notice of a sub stitute for the entire treaty, which he said ho would offer in the shape of a resolution setting forth that while the United States accepts the doctrine of arbitration as wise and humane, the present treaty is not demanded by the exigencies of the times. House. The Dingley tariff bill debate was finally concluded and a vote taken and it was passed l3' a majority of83. The vote stood, jeas 205, nays 122, present but not voting 21. The last amendment to be acted upon was that of Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, which was passedand which fixed April 1 as the date on which the bill shall go into effect. Sen ate. Fifteenth day. The Cuban question was revived after a long pe riod of comparative calm. Four dis tinct Cuban resolutions were brought forward in rapid succession. The last and most important one came from Senator Morgan, of Alabama. It de clares that a state of war exists in Cuba and announces the policy of the United States to accord both parties to the conflict full recognition as belliger ents. Of the other resolution twe were agreed to. One of these, by Mr. Morgan, calls on the President for the letters of Gen. Gomez to himself and Mr. Cleveland and for other informa tion on Cuban affairs. The other by Mr. Mills, of Texas, instructs the com mittee on foreign relations to report what obligations the United States has assumed by compelling Cuba to remain subject to Spain. Still another resolu tion came from Mr. Allen, of Nebraska, and proposed a protest against the re ported purpose of the Spanish authori ties to try Gen. Kuiz Pivera, the Cuban officer, by military drumhead court martial. This resolution went over. The tariff bill passed by the House was received. There were no formali ties as to its reference to the commit tee on finance. Mr. Hale, of Maine, se cured immediate consideration and pas sage of a joint resolution directing the secretary of the navy to use a govern ment vessel or charter a private vessel for the transportation of contributions of grain, etc., to the famine-stricken people of India. Mr. Stewart, of Ne vada, took occasion to speak briefly on the demonetization of silver in In dia, brought about by England, as one of the chief causes of the present la mentable condition of affairs in India. In the executive session the considera tion of amendments to the arbitration treaty was completed. Senator Chan dler took occasion to call attention tc situation in Crete, and, said that he did not feel disposed to enter into negotia tions with any power whose guns were trained upon a community of Chris tians struggling to throw off the yoke of Moslemism. He also spoke of Eng land's conduct toward the Poers of the Transvaal as deserving of condemna tion and a cause for hesitation In the present' negotiations. House. Nc session. s (Sixteenth day.
