other paragraph it is stated that certain ex

necessary to enforce the constitution and the

not; but the country would feci much better

Of all the evils pievalent among young
men, we know of none more blighting in its
moral frects than to speak lightly of the
virtue of a woman. Nor is there anything
in which young men are so thoroughly mis
taken as the low estimate they lortu as to
the Integrity of women. Xot of their own
mothers aud sisters, but ol others, who, they
forget, are somebody else's mothers and sis
ters. As a rule no person who surrenders to
this debasing habit is to be trusted with an
enterprise requiring integrity of character.
Plain words should be spoken on Ibis sub
ject, for the evil Is a general one and deep
rooted. If young men are sometimes thrown
into society of thoughtless or depraved wo
men, they have no more right to measure
all other women by what they see of those
than they have to estimate the character of
honest and respectable citizens by the de
velopment of crime in our police courts,

'HAItY. .NEW I'EXITEX-
The House at Harrisburg proceeded to
the consideration of tho appropriation bills
on Monday night on second reading with
the following result i
When the act maklnc an appropriation
of fGOO.OOO to tlie middle penitentiary at
llunUnuoon came un lor consideration it
was moved to amend by reducing the amount
to 4-2OO.O0H to be paid iu the years 1S70,
INN I nun ism.
Mr. llenit moved to amend by providing
hat the 5200,000 should b panl in two years
nsteail of three: SIOO.000 iu 1S7U and
100,000 iu 1SS0.
Mr. Provins moved to indefinitely post'
pone the whole mntter.
Mr, D.ivle onnosed tho motion in a few re
inaiks. He thought the penitentiary was a
needed improvement, and tnat t no legisia
ture should mako the necessary appropria
tions for its completion,
Mr. Colborn honed tbo bill would bo in
definitely postponed. He said his people
could co to Pittsburg in three hours, while
it took from morning until night to gel to
lluntlnEilon. If there was a necessity for
a new penitentiary then it should have been
elected at Harrisburg a more convenient
and more suitable place. He did not think
the erection of n new peuitenriary was a ne
cessity. Mr. Colborn nnd Mr. I'rovins favored in
Mr. Hewitt thought the state could III
afl'urd to stop tlie work now. That tho
building of tho penitentiary was a public ne
cessity was made apparent by tne over crown
ed condition of the eastern and western pen
itentiaries. The state should find revenues
enough to meet the wants of the people.
The oppropriation has been reduced trom
$000,000 to $200,000 and there was now no
further reason for opposition.
Mr. Khoads could not find sufficient force
in the gentleman's arguments to induce the
house to grant the appropriation.
Mr. Welsh thought that the state would
need increased facilities forvictims since the
passage of the tramp law.
Mr. Davis, of Philadelphia thought tbo
bill was a meritorious one and should be
Mr. Wolfe said n former legislature, the
board of public chaiitics and the officers of
the l'hilaiielphia penitentiary nud an decid
ed that another penitentiary was needed.
Tho time was fast approaching when the
east and the west would ned penitentiaries
for the exclusive useof thelrvarious sections
and as a matter of course, the middle por
tion of the state would then need a similar
institution for their ue. In view ol these
facts and that money bad already been ap
propriated to this institution, be hoped the
lie use would mute too necessary 'appropria
tion lor its completion.
.Mr. Nnkle also favored the appropriation
of this money.
The motion to indefinitely postpone was
then defeated bv 91 navs to f0 yeas.
The amendments were then agreed to and
the bill as amended passed second readin
by a vote of 81 -yeas to C4 nays.
Defeat of an Absurd bill.
A few days ago there was ou the calendar
of the Harrisburg House of Representatives
a bill imposing a fine of live thousand dol
lars, or an imprisonment of not less than
five years, on any employer of labor com
pelling any person to work more than eight
hours a day. This utterly absurd thing bad
pasr-ed second reading, but when It or a
simi'ar bill came up again the other day it
w in the very much modified form of a
fine of one hundred dollars or au imprison
ineut ol thirty days, l-.ven in the very
much mitigated shape it was rather too
much for tho House, and it was postponed
indefinitely by n decisive vote, Of course
it had been put forward under the pretence
of benefiting working people, but it would
have required very little thought among
the intelligent working men to enable them
to see that such a law is incapable of tquita
ble execution, and must havo been a cause
of embarrassment to them. A very large
proportion of the work done in these dr.yB
iiiiut, from its nature, bo done us "piece
work ;" another largo proportion depends
upon the seasons and tho weather, and ad
vantage must be taken of tho favorable time
fordoing it; still another, and much the
lamer proportion of any, is done under
agreement by tho hour; and yet another
proportion is done by the lump job. All
these would have to be counted out from the
operation of the bill, making it extremely
partial and inequitable in its operation,
Aud then, if the design of the bill was to
mike eight hours work the equivalent often
hours iu the matter of pay, that would fail
for two reasons ; First, all new contracts or
agreements would bo based on the lesser
amount of labor to be performed, or else
they would be made to run by the week of
Ileal working men themselves "real
working men," in contradistinction to the
noisy demagogues who use their name and
assume to speak for them understand this
right well, They know that such a system
cannot be made to work out its pretended
The ba low legislators who try their
bauds at such law-making might as well
attempt to legislate upon tho nor'heast wind
or enact that it snail rain but twice a mouth
and that rainy Sundays shall be abolUlud,
As to 'compelling" men to work more than
eight buiirs a day, that is nonsense. Nn
man can be so compelled. If he works nine,
ten or eleven hours, it is because be agrees
and chooses to do so ; and the industriou
man who does choose it, whether he does it
to make mote money or because of the nec
essities of his ease, would not thank the
Legislature fur attemptlngtoputsucli shack

Harnstahle, May 12. L was announced
this morning that Mrs. Freeman was dying
and investigation slinks that the probabili
ties ate that she will live a short time only.
She is weepingand starving herself to death,
although sh dues not seek to commit sui
cide. Confiufd ulone in the cell on the up
per floor of the burn like building, sbe has,
since tlie first Sunday alter tho killing of
Edith, wept constant!) day and uight. She
has tried to eat, believing that it was her
duty to do so, but iu the ten days of her im
prisonment slio has eaten l(s- than would
make an ordinary meal. When the Sunday
pastd and her littlegirl was not resurrected,
as sbe firmly believed she would be, Mrs.
Fruman at once admitted that she and her
husband bad made ou nwlul mistake, and
with this acknowledgment the maternal in
stinct that pleaded so strongly in pra;er that
her child might bo spared, has returned.
She has said that she could not have con
sented to the sacrifice had she not firmly be
lieved that Edith would be res'ored to life
ou the third day. She also says that It was
revealed to her husband SO hours beforo the
sacrifice that Edith's immolation was de
manded. He went to the barn and prayed
for hours that God would take the cup from
him, and she at length went to the bam and
kneeling on the hay beside her husband, put
her arm around his neck, ai.d both of them
prayed to be spared the necessity of doing
tho act, but they got no peace until they
deteimiued to do it. Hersorrow is most dis
tressing now. She is In eutire possession of
her reasoning faculties, and the jailer's wife
thinks that it would bo a mercy if she could
bo berelt of reason. She moans, "Oh, my
little darling child, how could Qod have
permitted us, who loved Him so and tried
to follow Him, to do such a wrong ;" and
then sbo bursts into the most passionate sob
bing that lusts for hours. The seraphic look
that was on her face when she was brought
before the Justice is gone. Her lace has
wasted, leaving her cheek bonvs prominent,
and both are bright red with hectic Hush
which indicates fever. Her otherwise wbito
face and bloodless lip-1, and her great eyes
that are red with weeplng.her tottering step,
and her inability to eat or sleep, are regard-
ed us indications that very soon the reserve
nervous strength will be exhausted and that
she will rapidly decline. Her love for the
baby aid her remorse have over-shadowed
her religious faith.
Her husband knows nothing of this. He
is perfectly self-contented, and eats aud
sleeps well, still confident that God com
miuided the act. He has been reading "Ere
mont's Explorations." He said to-day to
77ie Sun correspondent that he did not want
any pettifoggers to defend him for notoriety
but that if an eminent lawyer of Hoston or
New York would take his case and conduct
the defence on the principles of the light of
every man to follow tho honest convictions
of his conscience, be would accept such de
It rice. Justice Hopkins, In his verdict given
as Coroner and filed to-day, says that Editli
Freeman's death was caused by the act ot
her father, who premeditated it, and who
committed it without provocation, alette
by the mother, and that such act was done
because both honestly believed that they
were commanded b) God to do it toillus
trate their faith. The Justice believes that
If any lawyer dares go before the court and
argue that the act Is consistent with a belief
iu the literal or supernatural teachings of
tlie Bible and liable to bo Ibereforo repeated
again, oue of tho most remarkable points
will be placed before tho courts of Massa
chusetts which they hae ever beeu called

To parodv Hymn's famous definition of
man, Congress has become a pendulum be
tween a caucus and a veto. One week ago
all the world was positive that the President
would sign IIib "antl bayonet bill," as It Is
called, but while I write the newsboys aio
yelling here's your evening paper with the
President's veto message. Tho next ques
tion is what will the Democrats do about it.
Thtre is in tho mnjjrity a strong sentiment
in favor of nljouriimeut without provision
for the nriuy, but it is certain that the num
ber Iu favor of this policy is not as great as
;t was when tlid last session adj turned. Sju
ntoi Ttitirmin, who is the acknowledged
leader of his party In Washington, is report
ed (I say reported) to have said that it
would be a great mistake for Congress t "ad
journ without having passed the noJesmry
supplies for the uulitsry and civil services.
Just what will b-s duno it Is, of c.mrse, Im
possible tosiy, but soaie pi in of action will
beaureid upon beforo the end of the week,
and that plan will probably be to continue
the army appropriation bill of last year until
the 1st of January, 1SS0. Although a veto
of the legislative appiopriation bill is antic
ipated, the Senate will proceed to pa-s it in
tho same funn as it has been passed by the
House. If the bill shall be met with the ex
pected veto, Congre-s will pa-s t'o jurors'
test oath k peal and the supervisor's law,
ami if they sba'l be vetoed, supplies will be
voted, as in the case of the other bills until
the 1st of January next. It is confidently
predicted that the majority will pass a free
coiuae silver bill nnd give tho President
something more to do in tlie veto line. Sen
ator l!"ck 1ms said : "Mr. Hayes' vetoes shall
be made cheap by overstocking the market.
Outside of Congress both parties profess
to be happy over tlie legislative crisis, 1j
publicans insist that they will gain by the
veto of all legislaslon that has for its object
the abrogation of legislation arising nut of
the war and the Democrats insist that there
will now be a clear aud simp'e issue at th
polls on the question of free elections.
It had bcn tlnught that Congress vould
adjourn before the loth of June, but this last
new veto complicates matters somewhat,
and it may make a longer se-s:ou necessary.
Spring has come upon us almost within a
week. The many parks that dot the renew
ed Capitol City are clothed in green. The
fountains that have bren still during the
winter, have commenced lo play, tin J of
evenings the settees in the public gardens
aro occupied by all sentimental people of all
ages, colors and previous conditions. Wash-

streets aud boulevards aud parks of our lit
tie capital are out of all proportion and the
expense entailed iu keeping them clean and
n order Is very groat. Moreover, iu sum
mer, the only season in which they are at
tractive, Washington is practically deserted.
No one who can afford to leave the city, but
Hies from tho malarial monster that lurks

the more healthful heights of the Soldiers'

which President Lincoh lived during the
war. The Secretary of War will also leave
the city for a cottage in the Bams beautiful
park. Members and Senators who own res
iderices in the city will abandon them to the
charge of servauts or rent them to carefnl
tenauts until they shall be ready to occupy
them for the next session. Four vears so
living iu Washington was very cxpeusive,

John .1, Andrews, a Philadelphia uier

years ago, and physicians told him that there
was no cure. The useless member gave him
no trouble until 1877, but thereafter it was
occasionally so painful that ho writhed on
the l!-or until the attack was over. Many
of the best occulists made careful examina
tions, and were unable to ascertain the na
ture of the disease. Lately he nut himself
into llu hands of a Philadelphia physician,
of whose investigation he says : "He blis
tered me around the eye to draw out the In
flammation, and at last be said : 'I know
what it is not ; it is not inflammation, and
tbat is one pulut gained,' He drew out a
diseased tooth aud cut out a piece of the jaw
bone aud did some probing ; finally he said:
It does not come fiom a tooth nerve, and
that is another point gained.' He dosed me
with ijuluiuc until be was satisfied, nnd then
he said: 'It is not uilasna, and that is an.
other point gained.' Last Thursday he put

bounty Commissioners to build n new Court
louse. With a population of 10,000 In tho
county, and no county debt it was thought
that a $100,000 .Court Houso would not bo
too expensive. Arrangements were made to
erect n building of that clas. From tho
beginning tho peoplo of the county were
trongly opposed to tbo work. The feeling
was worked upon by ambitious politicians,
nnd it becimo so strong that ordinary party
lues were forgotten, and the only pirtles l'i
tho county were tho Court Homo and antl
Court House parlies. Of the former Com
mlssloner Thomas Ilrown was n conspicuous
leader. William Hartwcll, a wealthy and
influential farmer of au Interior township
became a power in thoanti-Courtllouse par
ty. The opponents of tho Court IIouo ham
pered tho work by injunctions and legal
proceedings of various kinds. Thorns
Ilrown used liberally of bis means to carry
through the plans which were devised to
lefeat tho efforts of the autl-Court llousi
people, lie was an old contractor and
builder, ami had set his heart on perpetual
iog his name lu the county through work
on the new Court House,
On the result of tho election In the county
In 1877 everything depended. The Court
House party ha l control of the olfices, nnd
the nuii-Court House party were putting
forth extraordinary efforts to secure several to
be filled that year. They elected their tick
et by an overwhelming majority. Probably
to no other person In the county did tho re
sult give more joy than to William Hart-
well. He bad if solved that Thomos lirown
and the other Commissioners should not
complete the new Court House, and tho suc
cess of his party nt the polls virtually put an
end to the Wurk. The disastrous result of
the election bo nlfected Commissioner Hrown
that he died a few hours after the news was
received. Last fall William Hartwcll was
elected to the position Thomas Drown had
tilled, two other anti-Court House men
taking the places of lirown's colleagues in
tho Hoard, and Hrown's son was removed
from tho clerkship. The county was in debt
SCO 000 for the work that had been done on
the Court House, which was nearly half
finished. The old Court Houso was torn
down iu 1877, It is not likely that tho new
one will bo completed for years. Meantimo
court is held over a bar room in an out-ut-the
way part of Honesdale.
It was supposed that Thomas Ilrown had
left his family well provided for, but the
troubles of the past two years had involved
him ruinously. The claims against his estate
were pressed, and a few weeks ago tho sher
iff levied on the Ilrown homestead, and ad
vertised it for s ale. His son H. S. Brown,
desired to save tho property, if possible, and
appealed to Commissioner William Hart.
well, thren weeks ago, to pay off tho claims
against the estate, and take a mortgage on
the property. Ilartwell's wife had died a
few days after he was elected County Com
missioner, lie had never seen the widow of
Thomas Brown. He went to see her in re
gard to making the arrangement about the
transfer of claims against her property. He
was so pleased with her that a few days after
ward he mado a proposal of marriage to
her. Sbe accepted him. He paid off the
claims against tho property, and made her a
wedding present of a deed to the homestead.
They were married on Wednesday of last
