The Czar IB inclined to show clum- ,eucy toward hit. condemned assailants by changing the death septoncea to life iniprisonineiit. Airs. Sailer, only 27 years old, is Mayor of Kansas, in the State of the same name. Nobody has yet dared to call her the''Mayoress." •Ninety acres of land a little southwest of AVyandote, Kan. ,was recently sold to Kansas City capitalists for $450,000, or $5,000 an acre. It is proposed to levy a special tax on Missouri corporations which organize under the Illinois law .with ;headquarters at East St. Louis. Mr. Lucas, appointed United States senator for West Virginia by the Governor, proposes to contest the legislative election of Mr. Faulkner. If the Czar of Russia undertakes to re-enslave the 80,000,000 of peasants in that country, as some of his advisers arc reported to have urged him to do, his life will not'be worth a week's guaranty. Dr. Hostetter, of Pittsburgh, Pa., is said to carry the largest life insurance of any individual—$1,000,000. Does this indicate that the doctor has more confidence in life insurance companies than in his bitters? Ex-Attorney General Speed, of Louisville, predicts the election of W. O. Bradley, the Republican candidate for Governor of Kentucky, and classes Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina among the uncertain States. The British House of Commons yesterday decided not to treat the London Times' attack on Mr. Dillon as 'a breach of privilege, and Mr. Gladstone proposes the appointment of a committee to inquire into the Times' charges of falsehood against Mr. Dillon. The river Hoods in Maine continue. Great damage has been done at various localities. Operations on some of tho railroads are suspended by washouts and broken bridges. At Bangor the city water works have been disabled. Civil Service Commissioner Oberly has formulated regulations under, which every clerk will have to stand" an examination for promotion to the next highest grade, whether he wants to or not. The regulations will bo tried first only in the War Department. ' Col. W. II. Bolton, who was some time ago tried and convicted in the 'U. S.

' HOUSE. , Thc:first genuine dead lock of the session occurred In tho House this morning upon a motion to take from the table Bogiirdus' County Option bill, where it had been placed by the report of tlio committee on Licenses a month ago. The dead lock continued about three hours, and was something of a reminder of the historic Haines'J regime. All that was wanting to transform tho session into a representative one of two years ago was the wild disorder and declaration of the Speaker that "no rights should bejlost". Upon the motion to take the bill from the table a division was taken, upon which the yeas were 62 and nays 4d.The speaker announced that the motion prevailed whereupon the wrangle began by a point of order, raised by Merritt, and supported by the Democratic side, that a two-thivda vote was ijecessary to take a bill from the table. A quorum was then broken upon motion to reconsider the vote by which the motion to take the bill from the table was declared carried. A system of dilatory tactics was practised by both sides, and much time consumed by calls of the House and roll-calls on motion to adjourn. A compromise was finally reached, by the adoption of.a resolution expunging all, of the proceedings from the journal re.I ative to the consideration of the County Option bill, after which the House took a recess until 2:30 o'clock.

III., May 6—In tho House yesterday Mr. Browne, of La Salle, temporarily killed the Hurcl Drainage bill, by introducing an amendment providing that any city taking advantage of tho act shall expend 10 per cent, of the amount to be expended on said drainage system in purchasing a sewage farm and erecting thereon sewage works and fertilizer manufactories. The amendment was vigorously opposed by Messrs • Crafts and Mac Millan, but it was adopted by a rote of 09 to 54. Tho Hurd bill, as amended, was advanced to a third reading and the lloche bill was treated in a similar manner. , Both those bills on third reading will be tho special order for next AVednesday.
