Ex-King Milan ar rived hero this afternoon In answer to the summons from King Alexander , who met him at the railroad station with a largo number of generals nnd other officers. Premier Grultch immediately tendered his resignation to Alexander , giving Milan's arrival as n reason. Ho refused to glvo any other cause for surrender ing his office.

A dispatch to the News from Vienna says it Is believed there that the rupture between the radicals and King Alexander Is the work of ex-King Milan , nnd tlio latter Intends to help his son in forming a military government. It is no longer , sa.vs thn dispatch , a question ot parties , but will King Alexander bo able to keep the throne ? With him the Obrcnovitch dynasty must stand or fall , and Milan has gone to Belgrade to avert tlio danger. A part of the radicals , It says , uro led by the fanatical priest , Gruitch , nnd ex-Premier Pasi tch a partisan of Russia , has openly declared in favor of the descendants of Kara George , Son-la's re deemer from the Tilrkish yoke. The real pretender to the dynasty Is Prince Aston- Icnra Gporgovitcb , who married the Princess Demikon' , and Is a great favorite of the war. AVIiy th" Cnlilimt ieilcind. ; A dispatch to the Standard from Vienna Bays the Servian cablnotrcsirncd because ot the presence of ox-King Milan at Belgrade. This , they declared is illegal , but they did not care to commence an open conflict with the crown by Milan's arrest and expulsion. M. Pasltch. president of the Skuptchlna , is en route to Belgrade from St. Petersburg. 1 f ho is willing to form u new cabinet possibly the crisis may bo deferred. The real cause of Milan's arrival at Bolgiado was the lilfl'orenco between Klntr Alexander and his radical ministers. 'Iho king ap'- pealed to his father , who advised him. not to broak-with the radicals unless ho wanted to luspoml the constitution nnd institute n military regime , which Milan strongly deprecated. King Alexander replied Jf ho could not have his own way ho would abdicate and leave Servla , wherouuon Milan started im mediately for Bclcrade.

All the political parties In the Basque provinces have united in send ing to Mr. Gladstone at Biarritz a message of admiration , accompanied by n gold Inlaid casket , containing a sprig from the historic oak at Gurnicn , the meeting place of the parliament of Basque senators , which orig inally sat beneath the canopy of the ancient oak , which Is still borne on the shield of the town. The present oak was planted about 1811. In 1704 the French cut down the ancient oak , which was a refuge for debtors , as no Basque could bo arrested without a Bumirons to appear under it , learn the charge atralnst him and thus prepare his de fense. Hence the oak Is regarded as a sym bol of Basque liberty. Will I'nrilyzo isuMncM. CALCUTTA , Jan. 21.

The president has nt last conceded the position to Mr. McShano , it Is stated , and has intimated that the name shall go to the senate with the next batch of treasury nom inations. The only clement of doubt there has been at any tlmo about McShano's ap pointment has been with the president , who lias hesitated on account of objections lodged with him by certain prominent democrats nt Omaha. The president has listened patiently to protests and charges against Mr. Mc- Shnnc from some Omaha democrats , and has gone so far as to intimate that should ho conclude not to appoint him ho would glvo the position to Mr. IJams , out , according to statements made to Tun Biu : correspond ent tonight , there has been little doubt at any tlmo that Mr. McShano would get the position. Secretary Carlisle has been for him unwaveringly. Mr. Morton has most cordially endorsed him , and of course Na tional Commlttccmun Castor has urged his appointment. Attorney General Olnoy intimates that Ne braska willgota United States district attor ney this weclfbut ho will not venture to sug- gcsttho lucky man. He intends to see the president tomorrow morning and lay before him the names of .various candidates nnd to select ono from the list of six or eight.

There are two prominent congressmen very ill in Washington tonight. They are William L. Wilson of West Virginia , chair man of the ways and moans committee and author of the tariff bill , und Colonel David B. Henderson of Iowa , ono of the most gifted republican leaders. Mr. Wilson has almost worn himself out on the tariff bill. Ho Is a delicate little man at best , and has kept in his committee room at work or at his desk on the floor of the liousa , participating in the tariff discussion , when ho should have been In bed. Ho had a hemorrhage of the lungs today. IIo may bo in his seat in the house tomorrow. His anxiety for his tariff bill will take him there If hn can sit up , and ho may have crossed the river nnd entered the life be yond before the sun rises. His condition is regarded as serious tonight. Colonel Hondorsonilost a leg Just below the knee in a battle during the late war and It has greatly troubled lilnt of late years. . Ho has suffered Irom gangrene and had three amputations. Ho is Just now in great danger from blood poisoning. Colonel Hen derson was in his scat in the house during the past week and made one of the most patriotic speeches against the tariff bill ut tered so far. Ho then went to his room .and bccamu ill. His condition is critical ! anOther - ' Other amputation may save his life. Ho Is a Scotchman , born on the soil , but an in tense American , a gallant man , a useful statesman and one of the wisest of republi can leaders.

The coming week will see the conclusion of the tariff debate In the house. According to the special order the voting on the bill and pending amend ments will begin a week from tomorrow at noon. Durinjrtho past week no amomftnonts of substantial importance have been voted on with any chance of adoption , except that fixing the date upon which free wool would go into effect , which was carried by the rad ical democrats , with tno aid of some repub licans , over the protest of the democratic mcnfbera of the ways and means committee. This coming week , however , will witness tlio fight over the big amendments to bo offered from thd democratic side. The full measure of the democratic opposition to the , bill will then develop , nnd considerable bad blood will doubtless bo manifested. The first light will como on the sugar schedule tomorrow. Throe hours have been , sot apart for the consideration of itho propositions to bo offered by the sugar men. AmciidiiicnU In I'lonty. Four amendments will bo offered to tlio paragraph placing sugar on the free list if the present plan Is adhered to. The Ilrst will be that of Mr. McHao of Arkansas , to abolish the provision relating to iho sugar bounty in the Wilson bill , which con templates Its gradual reduction a quarter of a cent year for eight years , until It Is wiped out. To this Mr. Price of Louisiana , will offer an amendment to substitute in place of n bounty , u duty of 1 cent per pound on r.iw sugar. A substitute for this to re tain the McKinley bounty of 2 cents will be offered by Mr. Meyer of Louisiana , nnd Mr. Do.uner will offer an amendment to the sub stitute to piaco a 1' . ; cent duty on sugar. This will exhaust the amendments that can bo ponding. The vote will bo taken In the reverse order. The sugar men will make a strong lighten on the ground that sugar is a revenue article nnd , In accordance with the dictates of the Chicago platform , should bo made duti able to till the delicti , which , it is estimated , the customs schedules of the Wilson bill will cause. They will have the' support of all democrats who-uro opposed to the Income tax , including Mr. Cockrun , Mr. Wilson and others of tho. ways and means committee. Whllo it is generally admitted they will probably be able to muster a majority of the democrats , the republicans , who are pledged to the free sugar features ot the McICinlov law , will clvo them no aid. The chances of the adoption of a sugar duty .for the above reasons arc slim , ( 'oul itinl Iro'i HclieUiito. Tuesday has been set apart for the consid eration of the amendments to the free coal andiron ere schedules. The present duty on both thcso articles is 75 fonts per ton. Tha co.U men , especially of Virginia. West Virginia and Alabama , tire at tlio back of this opposition and have the support , pretty generally , of the democratic roprc- scnlallvea from those states. Tuo iron interest of the south , Alabama nnd Tennessee , and of the Lake Superior district , including the vessel interests of the laltos. is lluhVIn ? nc.iinst free Iron ore. Iloth nrowlUhin' to yield a portion at the duty , and amendments ranging from 3 to 60 cents per ton will bo offered , ' Uaw materials nro made the backbone of iho Wilson bill and a big effort will bo made to prevent ilclcat here. The republicans , If thov Join the coal , and Iron men , as they proba bly will , may iake the vote close , but today the democrats of the ways and means co mti Ittcu show no alarm. / Income nmi Interim ! Itnroniir. T atcr In the week the Internal rovcnuo bill , Including tho. Income tax , will probably bo offered as an amendment , although this has not been decided upon fully. It is thought this light will bo a feature of the debate , If the advocates of the Inromo tax nro successful , as they claim they will be , nnd it Is put on the bill ns n rider. It will cause several domoiinits , nt least , to vote against thn entire measure. Other amendments relating to the to- bao-jo schedule , load ere , etc. , and other minor amendments , ns the committee may offer , will consume the rest ot the week. When the vote Is taken It Is probable u great number of amendments will have not received consideration. Mr. Hlchardson , the chairman of the committee of the whole , already has In his possession sovcnty-soven amendments. , In lie Senate , The present Indications are that the senate will divide Its attention in the main this week between the federal elections bill nnd the policy of u bond jsstio , as decided upon by the secretary of the treasury. There h.is now been a positive agreement upon the part of the republicans to continue the dis cussion of the elections bill nnd to talco It up with n view to Its. ' final disposition. Many of the republican senators have given public assurance that thejj would not seek to delay tlio final vote- upon this beyond a reasonable tnrio for debate , nnd the /act that the repub lican caucus took nu action looking to decid ing upon n policy , c.onccntlmr thr measure would seem to Indicate that no such course wilt ? bo pursued. On the other hand , tlui continued postpone ment of the Interrupted discussion of the subject would seem to Indicate that there may bo some design of brushing the subject aside by pleading for delay until the tariff bill shall reach the senate , and to absorb its entlro time with tlia't. It is evident that the democratic Icadcrfi'liavo some apprehension of n policv of this Ufnd , and are determined that If such a purpo'si ) is entertained It shall not succeed. Thai' 'will ' have a double reason for insisting on prf > edlmr with the elec tions debate * this week , first , that they are qulto determined to dispose of thu subject before the tariff hill Is reached ; ami , second end , that they wis.h to , as far as poss'blo , divert the speech-making in the senate from the bond question' . " Hence it may reason ably bo inferred that the program , ns agreed to in the" senate on. Thursday hist , with ro- spcot to tills bill , will bo observed. Will hponk on the Itonil Insuc. Senator Lodge hat given formal notice of an intention to speak on the bond question Wednesday , and ' Senators Hoar , Fryo , Chandler , Illgglns nnd Hawley have Indi cated they would tisk to bo heard upon tlio bill before it shall bo definitely disposed of. Among democrats who will probably speak upon the bill are Si-Viators Gray nnd Hill. It will bo impossible to keep the bond question entirely > out of the senate , and there is a possibility that it may bo made iho subject of a number of speeches , If not of considerable debate. Senators Poffcr aud Allen both have reso lutions before the senate taking Secretary Carlisle to task forlils course , nnd Mr. Allen has plvnn notice df a sneech on Thursday based upon his resolution. Mr. Puffer's reso lution will como up toinorrow in the morning hour nnd it may be the means of precipitat ing this question the first thine in the week's proceedings. There , are also other senators primed with speeches on the bond issue , so it will bo very' surprising if there is not as much attention given to bondsas , any other subject before thbs'phato' . , Senator Call lias given notice of a speech for tomorrow b'ti'tbb' subject of patents tQ certain lands in FIcM-la- and It is" proudble Senator McMUlafrfm ! } a'sk to have a part of some day in thn > Vfiek.set aside for eulogies -on' the late Ke'pfestrttutivo Cliapman.

FACE TO FACE WITH WORK Iowa Legislators Must Got to Business Earlj This Week. SOME MATTERS PENDING BEFORE THEM Prohibition Modification anil Stuto Itevcnticii the Mnln 'topic * lor Ulscimlon und Ac tion ( looit Itoiula ntiil NoV tjtuto Institution * Proposed. Dr.s MOIXH , Jan * . 21 , [ Special to Tun BEE. ] When the legislators return from their brief outing Tuesday and take up their duties in earnest , many grave und perplex ing problems will demand their attention. The republican party , bnvlng > a complete ma jority in both branches of the assembly , will bo liolif wholly responsible for whatever leg islation may be enacted. This fuct is fully comprehended by the leaders in both houses , and thu powqr of the party caucus will bo specialty invoked to bring order out of chaos nnd lineup the members on some policy that will meet the requirements ol the party platform. ( jTlio first question is , how can prohibition bo retained in the counties where the law Is fairly welt enforced while other sections are given the right to rcgulato the traftlc , and is forcing itself upon the legislature for solu tion. A wldo diversity of opinion among the members has already cropped out , and the prospects of a compromise satisfactory to the different elements are duuious. The prohibitionists will make the light unon what they term the prlnclule of pro hibition. They openly proclaim , lu the lan guage of ex-Governor Uarrnbee , that "Tho legalized saloon shall novcr again IIml it footing upon the soil of Iowa , " and propose to light it out on this line regardless of the result. They are willing to add tv "mulct" tax to the pi Caen t law us an additional pen alty , but will go no farther In this direction. On the other hand the representatives from those sections in which the law Is partly tit wholly disregarded are Just as firm in demanding some form of license. They will bo satisfied with local option by coun ties as embodied in the Gatcli bill , but can accept nothing less. In the preliminary struggle in the two houses , which has already taken place , the local oution forces seem to have the best of it in the senate , but the prohibitionists claim to have scored n signal victory in tno house in the maite up of the committees. Many of the ablest lawyers in both houses entertain grave doubts as to the constitutionality of cither of thu plans proposed , and this point will bo fully und ably debated before any agreement can bo reached. The democrats nro saying nothing. Th6yseem to bo willing to lot the republicans settle the matter among themselves. However , should it coma to a light on the floor of the house , the democratic contingent , with possibly n single exception , will bo found ranged upon the side of local option and high license. Has n t'lnanclnl Problem. The state's finances will demand consid erable attention from the law makers. The reform legislature of 1888 , under the lead of Hon. J. G. liorr.vliill , chairman of the house committee on nprroprlntions , succeeded , after a hard struggle , in bringing the bi ennial expenditures within the estimated re ceipts from ft.'J mill lovy.-and In providing tv sinking fund for the redcmution of all out standing warrants. Under , the operations of this policy , aided by"thfi refund of thn direct war tax of $134,000 frpm the general government , the state has gradually re'lrod its interest-bearing obligations until it is now entirely free from debt , with n com fortable balance in the treasury. The so- called "niggardly policy" of 1888 failed to meet the approbation of the members of. the last general assembly , which decided upon expenditures of nn extraordinary nature , largely in excess of the estimated revenues , nnd as a result this legislature must either adopt the "Berryhill plan" or urovido for an Increase in taxation amount ing to at least ? 500,000. The auditor of state recommends a half mill extra .levy , on all the taxable property of the state , while many monitors of the legislature will advocate a collateral In heritance tax of from 5 to 10 per cent ; n franchise tax of ono-qunrterof 1 cor cent ; nnd tin additional tax ot from 1 to 2 per cent , on the gross receipts of insurance companies , OB recommended by the revenue commission , a bill of this character having already been introduced into both houses. The total sum available for extraordinary appropriations , ns estimated by the auditor of state , is $700,000 , while the special appro priations asked for are more than double that amount. Good roads will also bo considered. Half a dozen bills on this subject are already in the hands of the state printer , and there are more to follow. Senator Hlpwell of Scott county proposes to levy u 1 mill state tax for this purpose , while others simply require the farmers to pay their entire road tax in cash , nnd provide for the election of onq supervisor lor the whole township , abolish ing the present district system. There is still another scheme- foot'to authorize the counties to vote bonds for the purpose of macadamizing their principal thoroughfares , but this plan will meet with strenuous op position. Some oC the more economical members are Insisting that pro visions should bo miidn by which the whole force of crimi nals , both in the penitentiaries and county Jails , can ho utilized In this manner , and no tramp or vagrant should bo allowed to go free until ho had paid the costs and ex penses of ills arrest by hard labor on the stouo pile. Some years ago the laws of the state , as codified by Miller and by Mol < aluxworo adopted by the stato. Since that tlmu there has been considerable rivalry as to which of these codes should bo supplied to the mem bers of the legislature at each biennial ses sion. Thlfc competition has heretofore forced the price down to $0 and $ per copy , There has been a hitch somewhere in the arrange ment , and a member stated on the lloor of the house that some ono had surreptitiously purloined the plates of Miller's code , so that it is practically out ot print , ills success ful rival has , at any rate , raised the price from $7 to $ U in cover alleged supplements which tlio house , led by ox-Speaker ; Mitch- ojl , docs not .iroposo to pay. The outcome of the affair will probably bo arccodlllcation of the laws and their publication by the stato. Nuw at u to Institution/ / * .

Lemars , Algona and . : i do/en other places want normal schools , whllo Cherokee is after an insane asylum for the northwestern part of the state. More state oltlccs nro also in sight. Rep- rcscntativo Hoot of Clinton county has In troduced n bill providing for an insurance commission , with a deputy and several clerks , and Chussoll of Plymouth county wants to create an ofllco known as the "con troller of county accounts. " Of the llfty bills so far Introduced In cither house not n single ono refers in any manner to railways except the revenue bill. . The appointment of clerks to the various standing committees has excited moro than usual comment. The august senators , with nslg.illlcunt committees that meet perhaps twloo during the session , Insist upon having n rlerlf , and some of them do not bcruplu to ippolnt to these positions a son or a laughter or other near relative. Thirty- eight cominltli'o clerks have already been appointed by thabonate and tlio.oml Is not vet. In the lower house only twenty-four mve so fur succeeded in getting upon the pay roll , but there are others on tlio anxious seat looking for a Job and expecting to bo re warded for political services who will hardly jo left out In tlio cold.
