Washington January 10. A letter from
the secretary of the treasury transmitting to
the house the copy of a dispatch from com-
mander Merriam of the U. S. steamer Adams
referring to the shelling of the Alaska village
emphasizes the necessity of witholding liquor
from the natives of Alaska and recommends
that authority be given (o enforce prohibition
to selling beer as well as liquor. The keep-
ers of bar-rooms there have a practice of mix-
ing alcohol with beer rendering it as Intoxica-
ting as whisky and the most trouble Mer-
riam thinks comes from the sale of such li-
quors. Senator Hrowii Creates a Sensation.
Washington January 8. Senator Brown
or Georgia attracted attention this morning
while discussing the Ilowman bill which
sends all claims lo the court of
Claims for adjudication by declaring that the
bill ought to allow those la the rebellion
to the government lo have the right to prove
their claims against the government. He
quoted from the decisions of the supreme
courts showing that after pardoa an ex-rebel
had as many rights in a court of justice as a
citizen who had been loyal. Mr. Urown said
he thought it was nly justice that the fund of
$10000000 now in the treasury and which
accrued from the sale of captured and aband-
oned property in the south should be dis-
tributed among the real owners of the fund
many of whom were widows and children in

in Hungary and adjacent villages have been
only saved from inundation thus far by frost.
When the thaw commenced the water rose
suddenly all over the district. At 3 o'clock
yesterday morning the inhabitants were
aroused by the alarm belb and commenced
their flight. A large number of the .fugitives
crowded into a solidly-built theatre
which stands on an island In the midst of
the park but here a new panic arose

Kaab the dykes commenced braking admitt-
ing a deluge which soon reached the inner
town .containinghords of fugitives as well as
ordinary inhabitants. A considerable number
ol lives were lost but fortunately the flood did
not reach other parts of the town and ceased
to rise at noon. The City of Gray on the

in the neighborhood of the town of Komarn

scene occurred in the senate late this after-
noon. Senator Hoar was discussing the pre-
sidential succession bill. He was confining
his attention to some objections which Senator
Edmunds had raised. In the course of his

Mr. Kdmunds was rather late In thrusting hit
objections forward in view of the fact that the
bill had been discussed at the extra session of
the senate In 1881. Senator Edmunds arose

The senator Uried to steady his voice so as
to proceed. For fully half a minute he stood
n his place arid struggled to control his feel-
ings. A deep silence pervaded the senate
chamber. All eyes were turned toward the
white-bearded leader of the republican side
and wonder prevailed as to the cause of his
excessive emotion. The senator finding he
could not control his voice sank into his seat
and gave way to his grier. On motion of
Senator Ingalls the senate at once adjdurned.
Mr. Edmunds left the senate chamber Im-
mediately w Idle Hoar rushed around among
the senators protesting that he had no inten-
tion whatever of calling up the most sorrowful
period of Senator Edmunds' life.
During the extra session of which Senator
Hoar made mention Mr. Edmunds spent
