REPUBLICAN ALftOU, IOWA, TO PREVENT CONFERENCE TO PROMOt^ INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION MEETS. JHa**nfrt'* Preildont Include* a Roast in HU Talk for Arbitration—Foreign Policy of the Government Denounced iln Witter Terms—E. V. Smalley AUo Drops a Bomb Into the Peaceful Ai- iombly. WASHINGTON, April 24,—The confer- -ence for international arbitration, which has been very harmonious, closed last night with a mass meeting in Allen's Opera House in the course of which President Eliot of Harvard university severely arraigned the foreign policy of President Cleveland and his fellow townsman, Secretary Oliiey. The personalities which President Eliot uttered in cool, measured terms were so pointed that they created a decided sensation. He began by referring to the criticism of a Harvard graduate upon the assembly as inopportune. The country had been surprised discouraged At the Immense War Spirit it had encountered, he said, and tinued: "Only four months ago we saw by the message of President Cleveland that compulsory arbitration was to be entered into by two of the nations. We learned that mouths before the secretary of state had issued from this capital papers of a most remarkable and Monday, April 90. In the senate an agreement was made to yostpone discussion of the bond resolti* tion until the appropriation bills were out of tho way. The Indian bill was then taken up. , The house passed the last of the appropriation bills—the general deficiency. Tneiday, Aplrll 81. The house unseated James E. Cobb, (Dem.) representing the Fifth Alabama district, and seated Albert T. Goodwin, (Pop) The house also passed Towne s bill for the relief of settlers on Northern Pacific indemnity lands. The senate continued the discussion of the Indian appropriation bill. Wednesday, April 33. The senate disposed of the sectarian school question by adopting a compromise by which it is' declared to be the settled policy of the government to make no appropriations for sectarian schools after July 1,1898, thus giving two years for tho abandonment of sectarian schools, instead of an immediate abandonment. The house entered upon the consideration of the general pension bill reported from the invalid pension committee. It amends the existing pension law in some very important respects. Thursday, April S3. The senate devoted most of the day to the Indian appropriation bill, which was passed just before adjournment. It «now goes to conference. The sundry civil bill was then taken up. The house debated the Pickler pension bill. .Friday, April 24. Although it was private bill day under the rules, the house decided to proceed with the Pickler peusion bill, and the whole day was consumed in the discussion of that measure. The debate was devoid of interest. Tbc s-enate gave the day to the sundry civil appropriation bill without completing it. The debate was largely of a formal character. Saturday, April 35. The senate passed the sundry civil bill, la the house debate ou the Pickler pension bill continued. FOR EARLY ADJOURNMENT. Republican May 18 PRESIDENT ELIOT OP HARVAKIX "tenor, which between individuals would have seemed at least exasperating. These papers took thousands of American citizens by surprise, surprise unintended, perhaps, but inevitable. Then when brave propositions were laid before the legislative branch of the government that we thought Might Be Depended Upon ,to consider them deliberately, we were 'surprised to see that such deliberation .could no longer be depended upon." He spoke of the increased inflammability of mulitudinous populations be•cause of the press and went on: "We have seen the phenomenon of men employed as cabinet officers who have absolutely no experience in public affairs. This has introduced into public life a new danger—the danger of inexperience—bringing men from the tumultuous, contentious profession of the law into cabinet offices." Smalloy's Little Bomb. At the morning session of the convention a small bomb was dropped by Mr. E. V. Smalley of St. Paul, formerly a Washington newspaper correspondent. Mr. Smalley announced that he must dissent from the proposition that this country should welcome the extension of the power of Great Britain over the world as an agency of civilization, but should limit its own strength within its present borders. "The cry for us to establish ourselves as a sea power among the nations of the globe is jingoism." Carl Schurz of New York and General 0. O. Howard made brief speeches LOST BY EIGHTEEN VOTES. Proposition to Admit Women as tay Delegates in Conference Defeated. CLEVELAND, April 25.—The proposition to admit women as lay delegates to the general conference of the Methodist Episcopal church has been defeated by a very narrow margin. The vote of North Dakota was the last to be taken on the proposition. The total vote is shown to be 7,515 for the admission of women and 2,529 against. According to a provision of the discipline, it is necessary for a proposition to change any of the restrictive rules of the church to receive the support of three-fourths of the members of the annual conference voting for the proposition, aud two-thirds of the members of the general conference. According to the figures published, the women have lost by just 18 votes. Greater New York Ulll Paaies. ALBANY, N.Y., April 23.—The assembly has passed the Greater New York bill over the vetoes of the mayors of New York and Brooklyn. The senate had previously passed the bill ov«r the vetoes, and it now goes before tho governor for his approval or veto. Killed Five and Himself. ROCKVHJJS, -IncL, April 27.-Peter Egbert shot and killed Aggie and Herman Haske, children, together with Sheriff Mull and Deputy Sheriff William Sweem. Mrs. Haske was also shot. She is still living but will die. Sheriff Mull and Deputy Sweem lost their lives while trying to place Egbert under arrest. . Fouter'o Majority 80.00O. NEW ORLEANS, April 23.-The outlook is that Foster's majority ou the face of the returns will be about 20,000, although the Republicans claim that they have a majority of the votes cast and will probably attempt to seat their -candidate, as the legislatures close.

WASHINGTON, April 25.—Republican senators held a brief caucus for an exchange of views on the subject of final adjournment and order of business before adjournment. Senator Chandler suggested that adjournment ought to be possible by May 18, and was supported in this opinion by an almost unanimous vote of the caucus. Brief speeches were made by Senators Allison, Frye, Cullom and others, all concurring in the opinion that an early adjournment was desirable and possible. It was the general opinion that the appropriation bills should be kept to the front until disposed of, and no more adjournments over Saturday are contemplated. , Senator Sherman was authorized as chairman of the caucus to appoint a steering committee of nine, to take charge of the details as to the order of business in case it was found possible to consider other than the appropriation bills.

W,ldo Shoe* ftftdiott Will Be Abl« Wftlk Erectly. Not more than two men. in. 100 erectly. This observation, cornel front a ttoh who is a crank about the benefits of wide, flat shoes, says the New York Press. He declares he has made notes and knows what he is talking about. He thinks that the "two men. in 100'* wear the same kind of shoes that he wears, which look like those used for walking on water. This man also believes that the percentage of women who Walk straight is so small that it is not worth considering. The whole trouble he attributes to shoes. He says men and women were nevei 4 intended to wear shoes at all. It is his observation that when the foot is flattened out and the toes spread the natural movement of the body is to straighten itself. This he attributes to certain muscular action, and he has a chart to prove it. When the foot is compressed by a shoe and the toes jammed together there is a sympathetic tension on the whole muscular and nervous system (which draws the body forward or bends it. It has been noted in his calculations that persons in"bathing- costume on ths beaph walk much struig-htor. It is also a notable fact tho t the Indian, who runs barefooted on the plains, has the proudest kind of a walk. He is as straight as an iron pole. HE CHANGED HIS MIND. Praying for Death, the Lover Struggled Against It W hen Menaced. A curious cnse of nervous hallucination is reported in the London Telegraph. At Bordeaux recently a hysterical Frenchman visited the tomb where his beloved was laid. Carrying a lighted candle and kneeling by her coffin, he exclaimed passionately: "Would I could die I Would T coul d die 1" Just then the wind closed the door and extinguished the light. The bereaved lover who had just prayed for death rushed for the door; he could not open it; he tore at it, knocked, kicked, struggled, calling loudly for help. No answer, only the utter sHence and darkness of the tomb. His wish to die was forgottnn. He sank down and wept; his tears were not for his beloved, but for himself. He felt the pangs of hunger; he thought of his candle and cut it into four parts. He- ate the first quarter the first day, the second quarter on the second day, the third on the third day, and the last quarter on the fourth day. No more, and he must die of starvation. He made one more desperate effort to open the door, when it suddenly opened and the keeper of the cemetery stood before him; the sunlight blinded him, and he fell from exhaustion. He had been there just four hours. and Mot fiye Sees, It is nit admitted fact that iha e^e is ARTIFICIAL LIMBS. Their Use the "organ 6f vteidfiV' yet there la But little doubt, fcvett in the minds of opti« elans and physiologists* that the phe* iiomenon of "seeing" is chiefly mental —in other words, that it is the mind &nd hot the eye that "seea." Et6w often have you seen a friend who, seemingly, was engaged In look* ing intently on some object on the ta* ble, at the opposite side of the room, or at some picture, who, on being aroused from his day dream, would confess thnt he was "looking at nothing in particular." The explanation of the fact that he saw "nothing in par* ticular" is plain enough if properly set forth. It was because his mind wna busy with other times and scenes. Faces, bits of wayside scenery, And the like, were being 1 presented to view in the panorama of the mind, and the "mind's eye"— or mental vision— was engaged in eagerly scanning pictures of impressions made thereon months, years or scores of years before. Again, if you want to know whether your companion looked at his watch with his brain or his eyes, ask him the time of day after he puts the timepiece in his pocket. PREPARED FOR EMERGENCIES. Young Man Who Got n Clerkship In Anticipation of Ills Prodigality. Here is a story that one of the southern members vouches for, according to the Washington Post A young man, one of his constituents, applied to him for a $1,000 clerkship. The member secured the appointment, but the day before the constituent \\as to be sworn in he came to his representative in.n troubled state of mind and said: "Colonel, I have had $125,000 left me by an aunt, and, my God! just think what I have to go through again." "Let ine congratulate you," said the representative. "No, don't do that," said the constituent; "you don't know what you're congratulating me on." "Yes, I do," said the member, "for now you can live without working." "Colonel," the distressed young roan, "I may as well tell you. Several yeara ago I. had ."5100,000 left me by another aunt and it took me nearly a year to spend it. After I got through I had to go to the hospital for six months to get over the effects of my dissipation. The reason I came to see you to-day was to ask you to keep that place for me until 1 cu,u spend this money." BARE-NECKED SKATERS. Holland Women Appear on the Ice frith Ball-Gown Bodices.

Painstaking skill and constant improvement are necessary factors in the perfection or success of almost any industry, but nowhere, siays the New York Mail and Express, are they more fully attended than in the making of artificial limbs. There was a time when the lame and the crippled had to show their defects and misfortunes to the world. Now it is just the other way. People with artificial legs can now walk so perfectly as to avoid detection, and a person with a single amputation can almost defy detection. Improvements make it possible to move the knee and ankle joints, and this innovation also strengthens the whole limb and makes it more durable. One of the latest improvements is in the knee joint of the leg- for thigh amputation, which is so arranged that when in a sitting position the cord and spring are entirely relaxed, thus relieving all strain and pressure. There are in the United States 100,000 persons who have to be supplied with new limbs on an average of once in every five to eight years. The manufacturing of these articles in New York has become quite an enterprise. A Wealthy Railroad Fireman. A young man in blue overalls and a greasy cap and jacket is now employed as fireman on the Long Island railroad. He is George D. Pratt, the son of thn late Charles Pratt, themulti-milHonuire Standard Oil prince. -Young Pratt was graduated from Amherst college with honors in 1893. As one of the. representatives of his father's estate, who is the second largest stockholder of this Long Island Railroad company, he pro^ poses to learn the railroad business through every grade, from laborer up. He started in the cor shops at Morris Park, and after service at the bench, the forge and in the assembling-room, he learned how to use tools, how every part of a locomotive is made, and how the whole is put together. After having served the requisite apprenticeship in that department, he jumped into the locomotive cab and commenced shoveling coal in the capacity of a fireman. Prisoner's Retorts. Prisoners have a fair proportion o? "happy answers" credited to them. Of these, perhaps, the best known are those of the man who, when asked if he pleaded "guilty or not guilty," replied that he wouldn't say until he had heard the evidence; and the naive response of the prisoner to the usual question before sentence: "Have you anything to say, prisoner, before sentence is pronounced upon you?" "It's kind of your honor, acd if it would give us a greater chill than to meet a ghost at midnight. A foreign correspondent, in mentioning ti contest on skates, describes it as follows: "It was snowing slightly, but in every available moment between the races troops of mu^u were told to clear the course. At a given signal six women started for the first race. They were dressed in very short skirts, and transparent-looking blouses, low necks, with no sleeves at all. We were told they were from among- the lower peasant people, and that the-shop classes never entered the lists at all. The speed they went at was something wonderful, and especially remarkable at the corners. For the most part they raced with their arms behind them, but the girl who won the prize (two pounds sterling) skated with hers folded in front." Bare arms and necks in midwinter! Our physicians think women are courting death by wearing low-necked dresses in ballrooms.' What must it be to wear them as outing costumes? SOLID GOLD TOILET SET. Property of the Khedive Incrustcd with Precious Stones. It is said that the only complete gold toilet set in the world belongs to the khedive of Egypt. Its exact value is not known, but. it must be enormous, for the set is incrusted with diamonds and other precious stones. Egypt, by the way, has a debt of about $525,000,000, nd besides the interest on this has to iay an annual tribute to the sultan of Turkey amounting to nearly $3,500.000. )espite this the present Ubedive has >een following in the footsteps of his jredecessors, whose extravagances >rought about the present almost bankrupt condition of the country. Each piece of the Uhedive's golden toilet set bears his monogram in diamonds, Upward of 3,000 diamonds and over 1,200 rubies were used in decornt* ng these gorgeous adjuncts to the gyptian ruler's dressing-table. The body of each of the 88 pieces is of 18- karat gold, and all nre inclosed in a diamond-incrusted ebony case. 1 very quite agreeable to the court i like to sny 'good evening.' shoulc Leprosy In There are lepers in Iceland—aboui 200 in all.

The tutor explained the situation to the eldest pupil, who thereupon went out with his brother and bought a very pretty brooch.

As the young princes were staying at the hotel incognito the maid did not know that the donor of the brooch will probably be emperor of Germany some day The (field of Lies.
