WASHINGTON, April 7.—Wilson of West Virginia took the floor to close the debate on the free wool bill. At the conclusion of Wilson's speech a vote was taken on the wool bill, and it was passed; yeas, 193; nays, 60. The Kaum Investigation. WASHINGTON, April 7.—A sensation was sprung- unexpectedly in tho Raura investigation this morning, when Enloe asked if the secretaries of con gressmen ever sold information of the status of claims to pension attorneys, Mr. Raura had a big bundle of papers and was prepared for just this sort of a question, for he produced them and read letters in which the charge was made that Samuel, R. Uer3ey had, through Uagan & Co., of Kenton, Ohio, and II. C. I'uet of Columbus, Ind., car-, ried on quite a business of this sort, charging 85 to* each claimant for the information. It was then shown that Hersey had called up these cases on congressional slips signed by Representative Cooper, of Indiana, one of prosecutors in case. Mersey also worked for Brookshire, of Indiana, and Sir. Gantz, of Ohio, but it waB not shown that Uersey's connection with them had been the same as with the Cooper eaBe, the investigation directed by the commissioner having related solely to Cooper. The Senate. WASHINGTON, April 7,—After the routine morning business, a resolution was offered by Teller, and agreed to, calling on tho secretary of the treasury for a statement as to the amount of silver offered to the government each month since the passage of the bill of July 14, 1890, by whom and at what prices, amount of silver bullion purchased each month and number of days given sellers in which to deliver. The senate proceeded to a considera tion of tho bill making appropriations for the expenses of the government of the District of Columbia. P.MARTIN & CO.

I The leading minds in the encampment, Xhe Resu i t of thc Election in however, have taken great pains to 1 forestall any action which might bring on a discussion of thc question and cause a re-enactment of the remarkable scenes which characterized the recent Wisconsin state encampment. Tho Latter Day .Saints. KANSAS CITY, April 7.—The second day's conference of Latter Day Saints was opened at 10:30 o'clock this morning by devotional exercises, after which Kldcr G. H. Milliard, preached. The regular business meeting will be held at o'clock this afternoon. Thc present conference of this branch of the Mormon church is considered a very important one, inasmuch as it is thought some understanding may be arrived at betweeu the various factions. The church is spilt upon the question of possession of the tho temple, lot here which the revelations say is the spot where the temple not built with hands is to be erected and where the headquarters of the Mormon church shall finally be established. The lot is at present in possession of that branch of the church known as the Hendriokitos, which, however, number less than a hundred members. The Utah church is backing it in its attempt to hold possession against tho suit of the Latter Day Saints. Which ever faction wins, tins suit will probably bo joined by the others and this will result in the establishment of .one Mormon church, all the members being united in a common cause and a common end. THE ILLINOIS C. A. R. Twenty-Sixth Annual Encampment of the Department at Hprltiglleld, Si 'niKQKiEi.D, 111., April 7.—Tho capital of the state is in gala attire to-day in honor of the twenty-sixth. annual encampment of the Illinois department of the Grand Army of the Republic, and which has brought to this city an mse concourse of veterans. Prior to the formal meeting there was -a parade through the principal streets from the department headquarters at the Leland hotel to the state house, where, at 10 o'clock, Com mandcr Horace S. Clark called the del egates to order with a hearty address of welcome. Thc report of Assistant- General M'Kinnie which will be pre sented this afternoon shows that the department is in a remarkably nourish ing condition. During the year twenty-seven new posts were established, making the total number of posts in good standing (VJfi, with a to t-al membership of 33,884, an increase of 1,050 oyer last yeur. During the -year .over twelve thousand dollars were expended in charity, not a single cent of which went outside of the state. The balance in the bank to the credit of thc relief fund is eleven thousand dollars, and thc amounts remaining in the hands of the post quartermasters throughout state aggregate nearly twenty the nine thousand dollars. To-night receptions will be tendered to the delegates and to-morrow Governor Fifcr and his wife will keep open house for them. A MATTER OF DISPUTE- Mail older Department Attention strict and prompt. Wisconsin and Illinois G. A, It. Content! for a I'lace of Honor. SPKIKOFIBIAJ, 111., April 7.—Whether the departments of Illinois or Wisconsin arc entitled to that seniority which gives them the right to march at the head of the column in the..- annual parades of the national encampments is one of the questions to be considered by the present gathering. Considerable, interest is manifested on the point in Grand Army circles throughout the state. Both Illinois and Wisconsin claim the honor and the privilege, each basing its claim on the fact that it was the first to organize. The dispute is one of long standing, and at the last annual encampment at Detroit it was referred to a special committee with a view to an amicable settlement. This committee mot in Philadelphia several weeks ago, and after an exhaustive examination of the evidence in the case, agreed upon a report in favor of Wisconsin and against Illinois So far from settling the issue, however, this only resulted in increasing the local feeling, and a speciul committee was at once dispatched to Washington to go over the evidence that had been produced before the national committee. The report of the former committee naturally declares in favor of the claim of Illinois, and its presentation will be followed by some decidedly strongly worded resolutions. It is hardly likely that the trouble between the regular Grand Army men and the Loyal Legion, which had its origin in Wisconsin, will be carried into the present encampment. Home of the delegated who carry muskets, It it true, have had a great deal to lay of Thai Injunction -Cast*. KANSAS CITY , April 7.—The statement that thc injunction, obtained by thc Wichita grocers against tho railroads had not been dissolved is not carried out by the facts. When the case came up for trial at Hot Springs, a Wichita attorney moved a continuance on the ground that the grocers were not ready to proceed. As the grocers brought the ease, the railroads objected and it was determined that the case must be argued on the jurisdiction of the court. The Wichita attorney began arguing the case on its merits unci the judge decided that the court had no jurisdiction. Twenty days were granted thc grocers in which to (lie iv brief. In the meantime the rates obtain which were in effect prior to the time the injunction was granted. Knbbed His Employer*. NKW YORK -, April 7.—William E. Carpenter, charged with stealing 8112,100 in cash and $li),i>70 in bonds from Dix and Phyfe; bankers, by whom ho had been employed for ten years, was formally arraigned in the Jefferson Market police court to-day and held in S!i,000 bail for trial. Carpenter informed the police vvhercthc property was hidden and it was recovered. No merftion was made in the court of Oscar Creamer, tho temporary bookkeeper who devised and was principal in tho scheme of robbing the Arm. The latter is believed to be on his way to Europe. Now Give us a Kest. JSKW YORK . April 7.—A morning paper says that a call last night at the residence of Mr. Hallet Alsop liorrowe developed thc information that Mr. Borrowe and Harry Vane Millbank, his second in the duel with J. Coleman Drayton, had sailed for Europe on thc Inman Kiner, City of Paris, which left yesterday. Their departure was secretly made, and shown by the fact their names do not appear on the passenger list of any of the outgoing steamers. The I.cglslntnre Large]} Republican and Will Return a Republican United States Senator—Senator Khorunan Interviewed In Iteference to l*rusldentla lCnmlldntes, and the I'robable Action of the Friend* of Tree Coinage. PHOVIDENCE, It. I., April 7.—According to the latest returns the Republicans have a plurality, but lack sixteen of a majority, the vote standing: Republicans, L'7,289; opposition, 47.30!) The Journal, commenting on the situation, says the state is still so doubtful on the presidential question, that the independent vote will turn it. Corrected returns give Brown (Rep.) a majority of 186 and a plurality of in a total vote of 54.740, which fe :,047 10,000 more than ever ciist at any previous election. Hull and Utter, Republican candidates for licutentant governor und secretary of state, arc. also elected by small majorities, but there is no election for attorney general and general treasurer. The legislative returns show a good Republican majority in both branches already, with between fifteen and twenty vacancies to be filled. The control of the legislature by tho Re- publicansgivcs them the choice of their candidate for attorney general and general treasurer. terinn exhibit at thc world's fair on Sunday, and to protest against the opening of the fair on Sunday, and the sale of intoxicating liquors. The session closed last night by an address by Kev. A. F. Irwin of Hutchinson on "Aid for Colleges," and one by Rev. Fleming, D. D. of Wichita, synodica! superintendent, op "Ministerial Relief." The committee on home missions reported the allotments for tho various smaller churches, which report was adopted. • Illinois Foresters, CHICAGO. April 7. —As a result of the recent visit to this city of T)r. Aronhy- tekha, a Canadian Indinn, who at present holds the high position of Supreme Chief Ranger of the Independent Order of Foresters, it is probable that tho Illinois order will return to tho fold, and consolidate with the world 's organization. Some years the Illinois party seceded and has since maintained an independent attitude. The matter has attracted considerable attention both in this country and abroad. Previous efforts to Induce thc Illinois Foresters to waive their grievances and unite with tho order have failed, but it is thought, that art amicable understanding has at last been reached, BANFOFENCLANO- A Stay of Ksecutton. IlAnwaHUBQ, Pa., April 7.—This is the day appointed for the execution in Lucerne county of Edward McMillan upon conviction of the murder of his wife. A stay of three mouths, however, has been granted by Governor Pattison upon the affidavit of a woman who nursed the victim just before her death, aud which is to tho effect that Mrs. McMillan with her dying breath said that a Mrs. Bender was responsible for her death. Woman's Kellef Corps. SPHINOFIRI.D, 111., April 7.—The annual convention of tho Woman's Relief Corps is in session to-day at tho St Nicholas hotel. Thc annual report shows that during the past year a total of nearly seven thousand dollars has been expended for relief by the body, and fifteen hundred turned over to various Grand Army posts for disbursement. ' As Innovation. ITHACA, N. Y., April 7.—Cornell university announces an innovation and new departure. Following the exam pie of some of the other universities, summer courses will be offered here this year, its libraries, labratorles and museums being opened during part of the summer vacation. American Trotting Association. CnicAno, April 7.—The most important work done at the meeting of the American Trotting Register association was tho separation of trotting and pacing standards, in future, the pacer and trotter will not be registered under the same provisions. Dynamite ICxploslon. BRi/rn.v, Tex., April 7.—About 10 o'clock last night an explosion of dynamite placed under the steps of the Baylor Female college here destroyed the steps, but did no further damage. The cause of the crime is unknown. Atchison Earnings. BOSTOW, April 7.—Atchison gross earnings for March (approximated,) including the St. Lonis and San Francisco, 93,354,403, an increase of 878,519. iVeather Indications. WASHINGTON, April 7.—For Kansas. Generally fair: colder Friday; wind* becoming northeasterly. Sherman Interviewed. NKW YOBK, April 7.—Senator John Sherman was at the Fifth Avenue hotel yesterday afternoon. "It looks now," said Mr. Sherman, "as if thc candidates of 1888 would be tho candidates of 1892—Harrison and Cleveland again." "What impression has Senator Hill made in the senateV" Mr. Sherman was asked. "He has made none, for he has said nothing yet," replied Mr. Sherman. "It is not unusual, however, for a new senator to take little or no part in debate." "Will the silver question come before the senate again?" "Yes, it may come at any time. Senator Morgan's resolution' is now on the calendar. It must take its turn unless it be called up out of order. To do this would require a vote which would be practically a test of the main question, and a vote on a motion of this nature would be satisfactory to us. The. friends of_to_e cojnago, however, will not be satisfied with a vote of that kind, but insist on a vote on the direct question." 'Would a free silver measure pass the senate?" "Senators do not tell each other how they are going to vote. Many would like to know, for instance, which way Senator hill will vote," replied Mr. Sherman. The Democratic Natlonul Convention. CiircAno, April 7.—Thc local financial committee having ^charge of the arrangements for thc Democratic national convention is holding another meeting to-day, at which it is probable that contracts will be let for the erection of the wigwam on thc lake front. It has already been decided that tho work of construction must begin within a week from Saturday, as the national committee is beginning to get uneasy at the apparent delay. So far 830,000 have been raised toward tho fund of, which is needed for the expenses of the convention, including the cost of tho wigwam. It is thought that the rest will be raised without difficulty when the building begins to loom up. The necessary permission to use the lake front for thc purpose has been given by thc city authorities. Arkansas Hcpublican*. . LITTLE ROCK, Ark., April 7.—Tho Republican state convention for the pur pose of selecting delegates to Minne apolis, was called to order to-day by Hon. H. M. Cooper. Talks with the delegates indicate that, while Blaine would have had first choice had he remained in the field, tho wave of sentiment is now in favor of the renomina- tion of President Harrison. A resolution has been prepared cordially endorsing his administration and favoring his nomination. It'is not likely v however, that specific instructions will be given to the delegates. Presbyterians In Council. GUEAT BEND, April 7.—[Special] Tbu Lurned preBbytery finished its labors last night. Among the - matters of routine business yesterday, Rev. D. 15. Whimster was admitted from thc Pueblo presbytery and assigned to tho Anthony church; Rev. C. C. Hoffmeister of the Kansas City, (Mo.) presbytery, unsigned to the Harper church; Rev. J W. VanEman of the Solomon presbytery assigned to the Geneseo church. It was decided to hold the next meeting at Anthony in September. Kev. J. S. Glendenning of Pratt, and E. W.

Busser was received into the presbytery from tho Central Kansas Congregational association. Rev. Benjamin Mills of Meade delivered a fine address on "The Intellectual Status of the Minister." Tho committee on temperance re ported a resolution petitioning the general assembly to CMM the Preaby Interesting Figures That Appear In Its Ilalf-Veariy Iteport. LONDON, April 7.—Interesting, on account of their gigantic nature, are the figures which appear in tho half-yearly report of the Bank of England, which has just been issued by tho directors of that institution. Tho profits of the bank for the six months in question have aggregated S3,025,000. Out of this a half-yearly dividend of 5 per cent, has been declared. In connection with the liquidation of the groat Baring bank the report says that the entire liabilities assumed by tho Bank of.Englaud on that account wore 8151,000,000. Up to date assets have been realized to a total of 8115,000,000, leaving an unsettled balance of thirty- six millions. Of this immense total less than half a million is due the public, the remaining thirty-five and a half millions being due to the Bank of England. Against this, however, they hold Argentine stocks and bonds, but which are not at present available. According to Hon. Mr. Lldderdale this single loan of thc forty-five and a half millions is not at all liampering to thc finances of this gigantic institution. . The VVhltochapel Murders. LONDON, April 7.—The Globe to-day says that a dress maker, living in the cast end of London, has recognized a portroit of Deeming as that of a man who courted her Under the name of Lawson, in thc autumn of 1888. She states that they were walking together on the night "of September 29, and parted from each other at 11 o'clock. I'hc following morning, the Bhocklngly mutilated bodies of the women Stride and Eddowes were found in White- chapel district. Considerable speculation has been indulged in as to the possibility of Deeming being the notorious Whitcchapel "Jack the Ripper." In the statement published in the Globe, the dressmaker says that she mot Deeming or Luwson, as he was known to her, on the afternoon of Septomber 30th. They had a long conversation on the subject of tho Whitcchapel murders, and Deeming showed that ho was conversant with every one of tho horrible details. A remark was made concerning the suggestion of a newspaper that the murders of Whitcchapel were, committed shortly after midnight. He seemed to forgot to whom he was talking Und said to the girl "Look at tho time I could not have. committed the murders." Though the remark Inad-. vertcntly dropped by Deeming and his subsequent actions aroused a suspicion in the girl's mind that Deeming perhaps was the murderer, she did not until now communicate her suspicion to the police. The Strong Man Sentenced. LONDON, April 7.—In Court of London, session to-day before justice Sir P. 11. Edlin, trial was resumed of Carl Auguste Sampson, the American strongman," for theft of diamonds and other jewelry valued at 300 pounds and the sum of 750 pounds in money from Mrs. Margaret Bernstein, his former mistress. The jury returned verdict of guilty and the judge sentenced Sampson to one year's imprisonment at hard labor. The Deeming Case. . MEJ.HOUIISK, April 7.—Notwithstanding-the fact that tho jury that was investigating into the death of Mrs, Deeming who was murdered at her home ut Windsor, a suburb of this city, yesterday returned a verdiut of willful murder against her husband. Deeming to-day showed the same character that has marked him since his arrest. The verdict does not seem to effect him in tho least, and he is in turn jocular or insolent. Infernal Machines. FAIIIH, April 7.—A Roubaix telegram says while a workman named Caboulet was examining a tin box he found neur a large distillery there, the contents of thc box exploded und he was seriously wounded. The infernal machine has been found in the house of a factory own** at Fourniies. Public alarm over anarchist outrages is reviving. A box sent to Prefect of Police Loze, recently, proved to be an infernal machine. Karth Tremors luHpaln.
