MULCT ftND SUFFRAGE. Mulct Tax Measure Passed by the Iowa Senate. WOMEN GIVEN THE.RIOHT TO VOTE lilqnot Bill Went Through Under Snv pcnnlon of tlio Rules—Kelly Offered the Democratic Caucus Hill—Several Sena- tori Object to Itnllroadlng a Measure of • Such Importance. DBS MOINES, March 23.—Unless there Is a Veto, the state will have a new liq- r ttor statute within a very few days. The mulct tax bill, which passed the house Wednesday, went through the senate under a suspension of the rules and the previous question without an opportunity . for discussion or amendment. The SRS . sion that led up to the climax was tho most interesting and exciting of the session. , The vote by which the Carpenter bill was defeated was reconsidered by a vote of 28 to 20. On motion of Senator Funk the vote by which the Carpenter bill was ordered to a third reading was carried and the house bill, which was reported from the committee on the suppression of . Intemperance with the recommendation that it be passed, was substituted for the Carpenter bill. Senator Kelly offered the Democratic caucus bill. At the close of the reading of the 'bill Senator Fnnk moved the previous question. Senators Perry and Kelly objected to * the disposition to railroad a bill through the senate that Mnd never been printed had not been read in the senate, and to which even an opportunity for amend ment or substitution was to be denied by this Jprevious question. Senator Finn asked if it was statesmanship to force the consideration of a measure withoni giving either its friends or opponents an opportunity to perfect it. Senator Funk replied that all had had an opportunity to read the bill in the newspapers. He said the only object sought by those who oppose the measure is delay. Senator Perry wanted to know if the Republican party, as represented by the majority, could afford to deny to th'i minorty the right of free speech and refuse to recognize its right of participating in legislation that affects the vital in terests of the state. Senator Funk thought it could under the circumstances The previous question was then orderec by a vote of 31 to 18, and the Democrat! caucus bill offered as a substitute was defeated by a strict party vote of 16 tc V4. The motion then recurred upon th main question, third reading and pass age of the bill, and the bill passed—yeas 26, nays 24. The house passed the bill of Watkins (Jefferson) giving the right of suffrage t women in municipal and school elections Watkins and Miller (Lee) spoke for th bill and Ellison (Jones) and Funk (Hardin) opposed it. The rules were suspended and the bill placed upon its passage and carried by a vote of 51 to 44.

The entire day was dragged out by the rearing of depositions all about two points: Po prove tk..; Miss Pollard did not give )irth to a ch id at the Norwood Convent n 188Q, and ihat she is older than sW represents her.Mlf to be. There will bo nothing more for the jury until Monday, as the court observed Good Fi-iday and the session Saturday will'bo devoted to arguments over tho admissability of depositions to show that 'Miss Pollard had been intimate with other men than the defendant, :o which the plaintiff has given notice oi objections. Judge Bradley has been the recipient since the commencement of ;his trial of an unusually large correspondence, all concerning the case. Many letters came from religious people, urging him in the interests of the morals of the community to exclude newspaper reporters from the court, a power which the judge says is not in hie hands to exercise. Oue missive which lias caused the judge to smile was signed by a woman member of the bar and suggested that since he had excluded all women from the court when Miss -Pollard, gave her testimony, that the men should be debarred and the women admitted when Colonel Breckinridge takea the stand. . EMPHATIC SILVER TALK! Question Thoroughly Discussed at Des Moints. STRONG RESOLUTIONS PASSED, Grlczljr and Lion to Fight. SAN FRANCISCO, March fcb 1 .— A large fierce grizzly bear was captured some time ago and was purchased by Colonel Boone, the lion tamer. Among the other animals owned by Boone is a lion named Parnell which has a record for having killed numerous keepers. It was proposed to put Parnell and the grizzly in a big cage of the arena at the Midwinter fair and let them fight to a finish. Tickets at f20 are selling like hot cakes. The secretary of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has held two interviews with Mayor Elliott and the Chief of Police who assure him every assistance for preventing the brutal affair will be given. / W Phenomenal Gold Strike*.

McCowan of Albuquerque has just received an assay from a large sample of Cochita ore, which runs $11,000 per ton of gold and silver. _ _____ Tntnifer Switch Problem.

Will Support No UToinlnoe FOP CongreM Who In Not For Free Stiver. DBS MOINES, March 23.—The national silver convention closed Thursday evert- ing.- At the morning session brief speeches were made on the question, "What is the proper remedy and how it may be best applied?" President Johnson, of the Bimetallic league of Kansas, was the first speaker. Among other things, he said: "The silver age is upon us. England holds the key to all values in gold. The repeal of the Sherman act was the death of silver in this country. A gold bullion value depreciates values depending upon free coinage. The eud of the fight may be the dethroning of gold. The interna tional conspiracy seems to have been at work to reduce silver far below its true value. Any changes in the relative values of silver and gold is treason on the part of congress. The conspiracy of capital has given us the mortgages of today, amounting to 13,500,000,000, payable only in gold." Called Cleveland a Traitor. ' Among the radical statements which Mr. Johnson made and which was loudly applauded was that Qrover Cleveland was a greater traitor to our government than was Jeff Davis. . Ignatius Donnelly of Minnesota made a brief address in which he said: "The de- monetization of silver was a collossal conspiracy and crime, the greatest crime ever perpetrated against the human family. It is demoniac." Mr. Donnelly said he wished the Lord would interfere men. With a few well selected thunderbolts he thought some good could be done in Washington. Humanity stands today with a lot of infernal bankers on its neck. Those bankers were the lineal descendants of those Christ had driven out of the temple. They were using means which must eventually serve to destroy liberty in this country. The founders of the government would blush if they could see the present state of affairs and if they could appear they would go at once for their uniforms and muskets. Traitor* Iu the Rank*. He urged all to proceed on constitutional lines. The two old parties were responsible for the fearful condition of the country.

Notice for a motion to reconsider the vote was givdn, however, and at some future time the subject will be reopened,, The McGarrahaii bill, which wna to have been "taken up, went over until Monday and the bill for the extermination of the Russian thistle shared a like fate. A resolution offered by Senator Hoar expressing regret at the death of Kossuth was adopted. , Mr. Sherman precipitated a discussion of the nature of a free silver debate by the introduction of a resolution directing the committee on judiciary to examine and report whether the simulation of tho coins of tho United States by coins of the same weight, metal and fineness, except as authorized by law is made criminal. The acts ugainst the counterfeiting coins of the United States and other countries and if not to report a bill to prevent and punish such simulation. Ho sent to tho clerk's desk and had read a dispatch from Omaha, Neb., stating there was a private mint there which was engaged in coining silver dollars of the same weight and fineness as the standard silver dollar; making their profit on the difference between the actual value of the silver and the coined value, a profit of about 51 cents on the dollar. This resolution gave rise to much raillery and Senator Cullom was heard to remark to Senator Cockrell, sotto voco: "If they cannot get free coinage in one way, they will in another." Manderson (Neb.) did not believe it was possible the existing laws were not sufficient to reach the class of counterfeiters mentioned, but if it was true he thought the defect should be remedied. He doubted the story, however, from Omaha, basing his belief on his knowledge of that community, "although," he added, "west of the Missouri river we are very anxious for an increase of the circulating medium." Stewart (Nev.) objected to the present consideration of the resolution and it went over without action. On motion of Gorman (Md.) it was agreed when the senate adjourned it be to meet Monday next.

At the afternoon session P. G. Bowman of Alabama said: "It occurs to me that there is a way that wo cac again establish free coinage in this country. I am convinced by what I see that there is a commonity of interest between the people of Iowa and those of Alabama. Their legislation affects agriculturists iu the groat northwest in the same way it affects the cotton growenr of tho southwest, and wo come here today to make with the people of tho north a covenant as strong on the question of free silver as that made by God with Abraham."

Favor the Crontton nf the Oftlce of State Engineer, OMAHA, March M.— The second day's session of tho Interstate Irrigation congress was called to order at 9 o'clock Thursday morning. President Moses occupied the chair. The convention went into executive session to take action upon the following report of the committee on resolutions; Whereas, Tho government o£ the United States has platted and put upon the market as agricultural lands the vast territory known as the great plains, nnd Whereas, American citizens wishing to secure homes have moved on these plains, bought and paid the government for land and expended money In Improving it, and Wherens, It has been demonstrated by the experience of these men and by the signal stations of the government that the amount of rainfall at proper seasons is insufficient to make agriculture practicable, therefore be it Resolved, That it (s the sense ofthi«i convention that is It the duty of congress to make an appropriation to test the practicability of the following methods of irrigation for these plains: First. That the government should by experiments determine whether the underflow water is of sufficient volume and can be brought to the surface at n cost to make it available for general irrigation purposes. Second. That it should determine tbc extent to which reservoirs can be con structed for the purpose of storing storm water sufficient In quantity for irrigation purposes. Resolved, That we fully indorse the following extract from the report of the special committee of the United States senate, and the same be made a part of the resolutions of this convention. "If anything can be done to encourage the people of these great plains it is iin- portnntthat it should be done speedily. There are over 1,000,000 people in the arid and semiarid belt who have paid into the United States no less than 840,000,000 for public lands. The government should demonstrate to them the practicability before they can have the courage or cun command the means to prosecute the work on anv considerable scale." Other Recommendation*. It was also recommended that the convention ntge the government to maintain the meteorological stations on Pike's peak and elsewhere and uot abandon them, as contemplated; recommended the organization and permanent maintenance of irrigation associations in every county of the states in the arid and semiarid region, and a united effort to secure congressional and legislative assistance; favored the maintenance of agricultural experiment stations; the protection oi forests and the necessity of farmers encouraging the planting of trees; extended thanks to the Commercial club of Omaha. The resolution also favored the creation of tho office of state engineer in the various states and legislation which shall encourage irrigation construction and development; that tho executive committee of this association be instructed to cooperate with the executive committee of the various state organizations '- — J COUGH /V WITH SHILOHS CURE oocM. and 81.00 Bottle.
