ISrECIAL TELEGEAil TO TITJt EISrATCIM
fWASHnrGTON, February 25. All day
there -was nothing but filibustering in the
, House of Kepresentatlves, thus ushering In
with wholesale obstruction the last week of
the Fiftieth Congress. In the first place,
Bland, of Missouri, filibustered against the
consideration of bills by unanimous con
sent during the first hour of the session, as
he had given notice he would do from now
until the end of this Congress. Then the
friends of Sullivan, in the contested elec
tion case of Sullivan against Felton, of Cal
ifornia, filibustered against a conference re
port Then .the Republicans filibustered
against the consideration of the contested
election case, and pieced out the day with
calling-ofthe roll on all of the customary
motions in the interests of obstruction.
-rThey justify themselves in this by the ar
gument that the contest is entirely ground
less, though the Democratic majority of the
committee reported in favor of seating Sul
livan. They have practically admitted that
thev had no case, but they seemed de
termined to seat their man at the end of the
term, that he might get his pay for two
years as though he had sat as a member, yet
not in fact deprive Felton of his seat An
other reason of the Democrats for holding
this case off till the last moment was for the
purpose of antagonizing other bills, as an
election case is privileged and can be called
up at any time, and can only be set aside by
a majority vote or by filibustering.
It has been the evident intention of the
Democrats, ever since the power of Randall
became apparent in the votesof last Friday
on his reports from the Committee on Rules,
to use this election case as far as it would
go to prevent the passage of the resolution
fixing a time for the consideration of the
The prospects are now that no legislation
will be enacted from this time on, except
perhaps the deficiensy bill, the Indian ap
propriation bill, and the completing of
other bills by agreement on conference re
ports, etc. It is almost certain that Ran
dall will not be allowed, under any circum
stances, to pass his resolution for the con
sideration of the Cowles bill. The Hills
faction are desperate on that point, almost
Unless 'there is some great change in the
House there will be fine fun in the closing
lours of the session. The situation is full
or possibilities for disorderly scenes.
THE VETO MILL IN ORDER.
It Crist Ground Opt About as Regularly as
It Ever Was.
"Washiitgtok-, February 25. The Presi
dent to-day vetoed five private pension bills.
The bills granting pensions to Squire "Wal
ter, Henry V. Bass, "William and John J.
Ijockey were disapproved upon the ground
that the death or disability of the soldier,
on account of which pension is sought, was
not due to his military service. As to the
case of John McCool, the President, in his
veto message, says:
The report of the committee in the House of
Representatives recommending the passage ot
this bill contains no intimation that there
exists any disability contracted in the military
service, but distinctly declares the pension
recommended a service pension, and states
that the beneficiary is .blind. As lone as the
policy of granting pensions for disability trace
able to the incidents of army service is ad
hered to, the allowance of pensions by special
acts, based upon service onlv, gives rise to un
just and unfair discriminations among those
equally entitled, and makes precedents which
will eventually result in an entire departure
from the principle upon which pensions are
CASSIDS M. CLAT IN COflGBESS.
Although Greatly Aged, His Intellect lies
Bright as Ever.
rSFECUZ. TELEGRAM TO THE SISPXTCS.I
"Washdtgtos-, February 25. A stalwart
form, a great head of white hair, and along,
flowing white beard told everybody present
that Cassius M. Clay stood within the House
of Representatives, this morning. He was
the center of curiosity while he remained,
and his hand was probably shaken by
nearly every member of the House. Judge
Emory Speer, of Georgia, was another dis
tinguished visitor on the floor of the House.
Clay is an aspirant for the position of
Secretary of Agriculture, and Speer wants
to be Attorney General, and there are those
who believe that at least one of these gen
tlemen will get what he wishes, in response
to a demand for the recognition of the
South. Mr. Clay has aged very much
during the last decade, but is full of vigor
and apparently as clear of intellect as ever.

AFFAIRS ON THE ISTHMUS.

WASHINGTON, February 25,-The Depart

the Consuls of the United States at Panama

tSrEaALTELUGIULM TO THE DISPATCH.
"Washington, February 25. Senator
Leland Stanford, of California, the Presi
dent of the "World's Arbitration League,
has issued a call for a conference of that
body, which desires 'to inaugurate the
reign of universal justice andfiuallyof uni
versal brotherhood. "$ The conference is to
be held in "Washington on the 1st of next
September. Hereisacopy of thedocument
as signed by Senator Stanford:
The members of the World's Arbitration
League knowing the great value of a friendly
conference to aid in the reconciliation of dif
ferences among individuals who honestly fail
to agree regarding the smaller things of life,
are satisfied that the constantly recurring con
troversies in many portions of the earth over
non-essential religious differences, which some
times even now require the presence of a
standing army to prevent a serious conflict, is
chiefly owine to the lack of a common under
standing among them and the want of knowl
edge ot each other and the true aims of life.
Therefore we suggest in the Interest of truo
and practical religion, and to promote in a
much higher degree the interest of all classes,
that great advantages for progress would fol
low by the assembling together of dele
gates from all of these organizations for
the purpose of deliberating as to the meaning
of their great common platform, which re
quires service to God by serving humanity to
the greatest extent possible.
The World's Arbitration League, therefore,
have determined to invite representatives from
these organizations to meet at Washington,
September 1. 18S9, for the purpose of formulat
ing measures leading to the establishment of
all needed reforms that will hasten universal
harmony and peace. This conference will "be
preliminary and preparatory to the approach
ing culmination of the aims and efforts of the
world s Arbitration Leagues ana peace socie
ties, by the true means of educating every na
tion to the self-evident fact that an enormous
benefit would ensue to mankind by the begin'
ning of a common and gradual disarmament
in 1S92, when a great convocation of the world's
philanthropicaf assembly at Washington on
the anniversary of the discovery of America.
and thus not only aid in the establishment of
arbitration to settle differences between men
and nations, but it is believed will eventually
result In bringing to every government all other
great measures necessary to inaugurate the
reign of universal justice, and finally, of unl-
iood. On this encouraging pros

Red Letter ClearingSale
No doubt thousands of you remember and with pleasmre and sat
isfaction our great and wonderful Red Letter Clearing SaJe of a year
ago to-day and you will of course remember what a grand and phenom
enal sale it was. . Well, this sale is one that will outdo our previous
efforts and attract the attention of every economical and cautious buyer
in the city. And, for why?
WE'RE BOUND TO CLEAR OUR STORE
of the major portion of our goods. Don't you know that our spring
goods are pouring in rapidly, case after case being hourly dumped at
our delivery doors, besides which we have in contemplation alterations
in various parts of our store, and before the carpenters, painters, calci
miners and other workers, take possession, of the portions we intend al
tering we have heaps of goods to dispose of.
Be it a Suit, an Overcoat, a Pair of Pants, any kind of Furnish
nishing Goods or Footwear You May Want,
you cannot lay your hands on an article or garment but -what is a bar
gain. You can positively buy goods for less money than other dealers
in this city paid for them. Comparisons are absolutely impossible. The
frantic attempts of the little fellows to duplicate our bargains cause us
and our thousands of patrons no end of amusement. It would be just
as easy to dam up. the Ohio river with a sugar loaf.
The Goods We Offer and the Bargains We Give Are Nourishing
to Domestic Economy, and Will Put Two-Fold
,', Sunshine in Many a Homer .'.
Now's the tirrie to buy either for present or future want, so don't
hesitate, but come right in and choose what; yon like. If you only come
to look you're as welcome as though you came to buy. Don't confound
this Bona Fide sale with the bogus ones just now so freely advertised all
over the town. You know us of old, and are fully aware that we value
our business name too highly to lend ourselves to any "fake" business.
When you come you'll find our reduced prices marked plainly in red
while the original figures remain in black. Remember,
In Every Department We've Made Great Reductions.
