SPP, THE SUNDRY CIVIL BILL. Appropriation For Missouri River Commission Considered. ME. HAINER PLEADS FOR A SHARE, Alt Three Amendments Were tost—Pnra- grn]th Relnting to Soldiers' Homes—Army Appropriation 11111 Presented—American Fleet I/earing Rio—Kontlno Work In the Senate—Hoatncr's Resolution, WASHINGTON, March 20.—Without transacting any routine business Mon day the house went into committee of the whole and the consideration of tho lundry civil appropriation was resumed. The paragraph appropriating $750,000 to be expended under the direction of tho Missouri river commission was the pending subject of discussion'. Mr. Cntch- iugs continued for a brief time, his argument against parcelling out by restriction portions of the river and harbor appropriations made under the continuing contract system. Mr, Hermann (Or.) eulogized tho contract system for the waterways of the country, the inauguration of which, he said, was one of the grandest achievements of tho Fifty-first •congress. llalnei 1 Plcntla l?or a Slmrc. Hainer (Neb.) criticized severely the ivorlc of the Missouri river commission. Of the §-1,000.000 so far appropriated, 11,500,000 had been used on the same reach of 14 miles at Jefferson City. At the present rnto it would require $80,(100,000 and 120 years to reach Sioux City. The Missouri river commission proposed to expend over $600,000 of the • sum carried by this paragraph on the first reach of the river above Kansas City. Not a dollar above Kansas City, not a dollar at Omaha, Atchison, Leav- euwortb. and the other cities up the river where the Missouri was 'making great encroachment. Mr. Pickler (S. D.) ad- Tocated an amendment to divert $100,000 of the appropriation for the Missouri to the stretch of 1,800 miles above Sious City. Heard (Mo.) defended the Missouri river commission and tho money expended d% Jefferson City. Mercer (Neb.) •advocated his amendment to use $50,000 • of the Missouri river appropriation for l the removal of snags and obstructions above Sioux City, and §150,000 for the construction, repair and maintenance of revettements. dikes and waterworks between the south line of Nebraska and Sioux City. After a few closing words by Mr. Catchings, warning the house against demoralizing the systematic work done by the commission by parcelling out portions of the appropriations, action was had on the pending amendments. The first was Mr. Broderick's to set aside $75,000 to strengthen the banks at Atehison and Leavenworth. Kan. It •was lost—55 to 80. Tho Pickler and Mercer amendments wero also lost. Paragraph Relating to Soldiers' Homes. The next and last paragraph in the bill •was that relating to soldiers' homes : against two clause, of which (placing the disbursing officers of the homes uu- dor bonds and requiring an annual report of the condition of the homes to the secretary of war) Mr. Black had raised a point of order. Congress, he said, had dealt munificently with this board. Over $00,000,000 had been appropriated; not a dollor of •which was lost. Suits for recovery wero ponding against General Butler's estate in Massachusetts and a recent treasurer ia Wisconsin. Some 23,000 old soldiers were maintained at these homes. He •was opposed to the change proposed by the bill. It might handicap tho malingers. Mr. Cannon advocated the contemplated changes. An agreement was reached that further debate on the pending paragraph l>e terminated in !JO minutes, after which tho committee rose. Mr. Outhwaite, chairman of the committee on military affairs, presented tho army appropriation bill, and tho house .adjourned. PoituiiistcrH Continued.

TERRIBLE STORM IN THE SOUTH, Heaviest linlnfall nt Memphis SInco the Summer of 1877. MEMPHIS, March 20.—The storm continues in all its intensity and the downpour has been incessant, causing damage to roads and bridges and overflowing branches and bayous. The rainfall up to Monday was 5.51 inches, which is second to the largest fall that has occurred here since the establishment of the weather bureau in 1877. The largest fall was on June 8 and 9, 1877, when the weather bureau reported 9.87 inches. As the prognostications say the rain will continue at least two days yet, it is probable that tho fall will amount up to as much as, or even more than, the fall of June, 1K77. The downpour has been general over west Tennessee, northern Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and western Kentucky and was caused by the gulf storni which swept over Texas. Storm In Texas. DALLAS, March 20.—The storm which swept over northern Texas Saturday, Sunday and prevailed Monday were unparalleled in severity. The death roll will reach 20 and the list of wounded over luO. At Emery, capital of Bain county, the cyclone knocked the town nearly out of existence. The people in the storm's path are in a deplorable condition, all their household goods are either scattered out of reach of entirely destroyed and they have no shelter from, the downpour of rain which is still falling. The damage to property and stock will reach thousands of dollars. It is reported that Hilland, in Bello county, and Bartlett, in Williamson county, were wiped out, but no authentic news was obtainable from these places, as the wires are down.

WftGE CONFERENCE Manager Dickinson Concedes a Point to the Engineers ON THE QUESTION OF OVERTIME, EiiBlnccr* of tlic Fnst M»H Entitled to E*. tra Pay—Tclpgrnpli Operators A»k Super- Intemlcnt Korty to Drop the Conference. Ho Insisted on Going Ahead—Tnke Up the Wage Schedule Station by Station. OMAHA, March 20.—The Union Pacific wnge schedule conference vrns resumed here on Monday morning, with the engineers before Arbiter Clark presenting their side of the case. The telegraphers had left the main conference and were with Superintendent of Telegraphs Korty, endeavoring to settle the differences as regards overtime. The engineers were represented by George H. Vroman of North Platte, chairman of the grievance committee, and 15 other members of the brotherhood, Two representatives of the firemen were also present, but only as auditors, as it had finally been decided to hear the engineers and firemen separately. It is thought the engineers will talk up several clays in presenting their views of the proposed schedule. They claim that they are more seriously affected by the proposal of the receivers than any other brunch gf labor in the service, unless it be the firemen. Little progress had been mnde when the conferees took the noon recess. Operators Want to Drop tho Conference. Immediately after assembling in the afternoon the operators proposed to Mr. Korty that a stenographer be called in, tho differences existing be noted and the conference dropped. To this Mr. Korty demurred. The operators' representatives pointed out the futility of proceeding, showing that not a single point had been agreed upon, but Mr. Korty "insisted on going ahead. .Some discussion followed and the conferrees agreed to abandon the rules and regulations consideration for the time and take uj> the wage schedule. They began the work, station by station, commencing at Council Bluffs, and when adjournment was taken had gotten as far west as Lexington, Neb. In this time the operators had made two concessions and tho company hud made none. DiclciiiBoii Concedes a Point. During the afternoon the engineers entertained Mr. Dickinson in prusence of Mr. Clarke, putting the genernl manager of the Union Pacific in a tight place on the overtime question. Dickinson conceded that tho engineers of the fast mail were entitled to extra pay. The engineers asserted that men on slow runs, who were wiling to make fast time and could not on account of the company's fault, should also have extra pay. Tho matter is still unsettled. The afternoon closed with the cost of engine mileage on different roads under discussion. The engineers have one set of tables and Dickinson another, and each side insists that its tables are correct. After adjournment the engineers said agreement was apparently but of the question. They do not hopo to como together on the rules and regulations at any point. Railroad War Practically Over. SAN FRANCISCO, March HO.—W. W. Bissel, agent of the Santa Pe, was asked if the news was correct that the railroad war is practically over and that in course of 10 days overland passenger rates will go back to the figures that prevailed before March. "Yes," said he, '«that is substantially true. The basis of the settlement is that tho Southern Pacific will withdraw its boycott on the interchange of passenger business with us at Los Angeles. That is all we were fighting for." • Methodist Church Boycotted. NEW HAVEN, March 20.—Twenty-five Chinamen have declared a boycott against the First Methodist Episcopal church Sunday school. A week ago their opium dens wero raided, 60 arrests made and their paraphernalia confiscated, Mrs. Crocker, wife of Police Sergeant Crocker, is a teacher of the Chinese Sunday school class and they allege that she gave thq police a hint of their gambling, The boycott is tho result.

Met Miutctfnt DNplar of tuttllcctiml B«. ftottrcon In Itcr C'rosa-Hinmlimtlon, WASIIINOTOS, March 20.—Madeline Pollard faced her opponents on the witness stand Monday under a continuous fife of cross questions and the trial was like a play in which an actress is starred to the exclusion and belittletnent of all accessories. Major Ben Butterworth, the e.t-cong- ressnifA from Ohio, played a minor part as the questioner, all tho interest centering about the slender, blackrobed plaintiff in the case. It was the most interesting day of the sensational trial and it was made more so by a masterful display of intellectual resources, of quick perception and of telling replies which flashed forth at every turn of the.plot, as the lawyers followed up every possible trail which might load to admissions casting any sort of shadow on the life of the woman, apart from those passages of which had been identified with the career of the Kentucky congressman. Miss Pollard has shown herself to be a wonderful woman. Different opinions may be held of her by tho men, most of them intelligent and of some standing in tho community, who uat listening all day as though to tho revelation of a fascinating story rather than a woman's recital of sorrow and disgrace; all of them wero constrained to admit their admiration of her intelligence, her quick perception and her effective command of words. Seldom does a witness manage to give replies so telling in support of her own case and keep within the limits of the courtroom regulations, and several times the plaintiff's attorneys admonished her to confine her statements to ans\vers to the questions which were put. Mrs. Brccklnrldgu Loyal to the Colonel. LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 20.—The wife of a prominent attorney, who is acquainted with the inside facts of the Breckinridge-Pollard scandal, said, in speaking of tho rumor that Mrs. Breckinridge would seek a divorce: "The rumor that she now intends seeking a divorce is entirely without foundation. I received a letter from her last Saturday in which she said she was in good spirits. Every line was full of her devotion for Colonel Breckinvidge, whom she believes to be the victim of blackmail." WORK OF IOWA LEGISLATURE. Both Ileuses Wero SNinly Attoudud and ' Little IlusIiicsH Dune. DES MOINES, March 20.—Both houses of tho legislature wero slimly attended Monday and business was confined to tho consideration of the regular • calendar. The senate passed a bill auth%rizing the treasurer of the State Agricultural college to loan money on farm lands up to 50 per cent of their value. The lower house recommended the pardon of Thomas Brooks of Council Bluffs, who shot and killed a stranger named De Good in March, 1889, on condition that he hereafter abstain from -the use of intoxicating liquors. Bills were passed as follows: By Diedrich, increasing compensation of deputy clerk in counties whiTO court is held at other places than the county seat from $600 to $i»00; by Dowell. providing for a board of library trustee.] in cities of the first class. The following were Jost on final passage: By Williams, limiting the exemptions of fruit and forest trees from taxation; by Wood, prohibiting habitual dnmkards from practicing medicine. The Cornwall self-enforcing prohibitory amendment to tho state constitution reported favorably and placed on tho calendar for passage. WAITE'S CHARACTERISTIC MESSAGE. Scuds It to Adjutant General Turnuuy lit Cripple Cruuk. CRIPPLE CKEEK. Colo,, March 20.— Although tho militia is still here, not a single arrest was made Monday. This lethargy on the part of tho civil authorities evidently influenced the governor to recall the troops.
