Warm Times in Congress. The principle issue in the Senate continues to be the Brownsville incident. Saturday, Senator Tillman made a savage criticism of the president, alleging that he had lynched the negro troops whom he had dismissed. Monday, the president sent to Congress a special message covering the result of special inestigation he had made through agents at Brownsville, the tendency ot which was to remove ail doubt, as to tne gudt of certain of the negro soldiers for the disturbance. He modified his discharge order in so far as it prohibited the dismis.ied men from securing civil service under the government in future. They may even re-enlist in the army, if the department is convinced of their non-complicity. Senator Spooner holds that Congress has no authority to I question the president as to what he does I as commander-in-chief of the army, but Foraker will push his resolution. Representative Gaines of Tennessee, who had introduced a resolution docking members of Congress for non-attendance, asserted in a speech that Mr. Mahon of Pennsylvania was absent of the time. Mahon denounced the statement as an untruth, whereupon Gaines rushed upon him and would have assaulted him had not other members prevented. Apologies and a handshake followed.

In the passing of Dana Chadwick to the higher life, it is titling to mention some of his attainments and virtues not that they will be forgotten by those who knew him, but for the good which comes to those who read of noble qualities, modestly and sincerely lived to the end of a long life. Mr. Chadwick was possessed of a refined nature, a good education and artistic ability as a painter His handiwork waft sought at home and for miles distant. With his brushJae wrote the story of his character?- TJis stroke was free, his lines faultless, hiasHJlors true. 1 Its most natural attribute was kindness. His dumb creatures kner him only as their benefactor. Children received his attention and beneficence. He found the places where encouragement and a hlpiug hand were needed, and his left hand knew not what hts right hand did. Asa neighbor ana friend, . be was social, courteous, appreciative and obliging. His home life was exemplary a devoted son whose privilege and pleasure it was to care for aged parents, a helpful brother, a faithful husband, who blessed his home with peace and plenty, and, while we may not say a loving father, the love was there, and a young man has gone out from his home the better for Cncle Danas" care and protection and the influence o! his honest, upright life. He will be missed by many friends, but to his home and neighbors the separation comes as a great sorrow. The approaching change he welcomed, and, having loved his fellowmen, parsed away as one whom love of God had blessed. CoxnmiurKD.
