Tho Dolphin, a ship built by John
Roach for tho government, is likely
not to bo accepted, as it has mado four

tract. It will not run over an hour
without getting a hot box. Moat of
tho contract price was paid tho builder
by tho republican Secretary of tho
navy, but things have changed now,
and no more worthless vessels will be
palmed off on tho government. John
lloach basmado a fortune out of the
ship building contracts wiih tho gov
ernment, and his work was always ac
cepted without question, because ho
was ever ready to return a portion of
his enprmous profits to tho party that

Mr. D. P. Morgan, of Now York,
ha purchased tho elegantly furnished
residence of Senator Don Cameron, in
Washington, paying for it $95,000
cash. Senator Caraoron asked $100,
000 for tho property, but finally accept
ed Mr. Morgans offer. Ho never liked
tho house, though he built it to his own
tastes. Ho found that he had built
his houso too large and was dissatisfied
with it from tho time ho first moved
into it. Thero was a quartet of houses
built in tho immediate locality of the
Cameron house, facing Scott circle.
They wero all built at tho samo time.
All of them havo failed to please their
owners. Mr. Windom, who was sec
retary of the treasury at tho time, built
tho houso opposito Senator Cameron's.
lie lived in it but a shoit time. For
tho past season it has been occupied by
Mr. Blaino, who leased his own new
house at Dupont circle. Minister Pen
dleton, then a Senator from Ohio, built
another. Ho has sinco sold it. Mr.
Robiton built a short distance to tho
north of Senator Pendleton. His houso
is understood to be for sale.
Logan Elected Senator.
John A. Logan was elected United
States Senator by the Illinois legMa
turo on Tuesday.
Tho contest over tho senatorshlp has
been ponding since tho early part of
February. The legislature at tho out
net was a tio on joint ballot, 102 votes
or one morn than cithor party con
trolled being necessary to elect a sen
ator. General Logan was tho republi
can caucus candidate. Congressman
Morrison, tho democratic caucus candi
date, received 07 votes in caucus to 19
for Carter Harrison and 4 scattering.
Tho balloting began February 10, hav
ing been delayed by tho inability of
llio houso lo organize When tho joint
convention was to assemble t)m next
day the republicans marched out of tho
liouscynid only the democratic senators
went to tho placo of meeting. Several
times Gem ral Logan received tho full
republican vote .101. Morrison did
not faro so well, nud it was npt until
tho Mill of May that ho was ablo lo
poll tho full democratic vote. But as
tho republicans sat mute, thotuorum
was broken, and after two ballots on
that day Morrlipn's nanio was with
drawn. Judge Lambert Tree was taken
up by tho democrats, and polled their
full btrengtli. Meanwhile tin proceed
ings huvu twice been brought to a
Htund-Hiill by llio hand of death. A re
publican member died, but was suc
ceeded by n new member of his own
political faith, nnd tho dead lock was
not interfered with. Finally, on April
1 2, n democratic member died, and
three weeks later a republican was
elected his successor. This gavo tho
republicans 102 votes on joint ballot,
to 100 democrat?, and tho election of a
republican was only delayed uy tho
effort to bring tho wholo republican
membership into lino for Logan or somo
other republican.
General Logan served fonr years a

Washington May 18. An effort ia
being mado to prevent the facts com
ing to light concerning tho visit of
Fred Douglass lo tho First Presby
terian Church Sunday, and tho princi
pal reason seems to be that tho Presi
dent may leave tho church and go else
where. Thero is no question that tho
congregation is very much agitated on
tho subject of tho removal or retent
ion of Douglass, and decisive steps
will be taken at once, Somo of tno
members of tho congregation havo
been urged not to mako trouble by
insisting upon tho withdrawal of
Douglass, as the object will bo accom
plished quietly.
In fact, It is declared that Douglass
is so much worried at the publication
of Sunday's episodo that he will not
again set foot in tho First Presbyterian
Church. He declared that tho only
thing to be gained now is his removal
from office, and tho indications aro
that a good Democrat will shortly
take his place. There is no lovo for
him among bis ownpeople,and they say
that ho is only getting his deserts for
trying to foroo himself and wife upon
the whites. Dr. Sunderland, pastor of
tho church, is very much exercised
over tho matter, and declares that an
effort has been mado to unsettle the
congregation for personal reasons. On
tho other hand, the latter say they will
not tolerate Douglass. Some go so
far as to declare that Dr. Sunderland
will havo to leave the church if he
persists in acknowledging Douglass.

From our Regular Correspondent.
Washington, May 20, 1885.
It is pretty well known by tho Edi
tor and by tho readers of this paper
that their Washington correspondent
is no friend of the Republican office
holder. For tho last ton years I havo
been trying to have him discharged,
and for the last eight years I havo con
sidered him and written of him as no
better than a thief, who, like Ii. B.
Hayes, drew tho salary of another
man. The only difference is that theso
office holders have been drawing their
fraudulent salaries for eight years in
stead of four, or ever since the voice of
the couutrv discharged them by the
election of Tildori. But notwithstand
ing I am anxious to see Republican of
fice holders go, I cannot join in the
pretty common denunciation of the new
Administration becauso it baa not com
pleted its four years mission in ten
weeks. To mo it appears remarkable
that so much has been accomplished in
so little time and I can account for the
denunciation of the so-called tardiness
of tho administration only on tho sup
position that' thoso who denounce know
nothing of what a task Mr. Cleveland
and his Cabinet had before them. Ten
weeks ago the President found himself
at the head of a ponderous and com
plicated chaos of governmental machi
nery intimately connected with the in
terests of GO.OOO.OOO of people and
handling $300,000,000 per year in the
transaction of public business. He was
without experienco in National affairs,
had not been in Washington until ho
came as President. It is not remark
able that ho spoke in his inaugural ad
dress of the painful sense of responsi
bility with which he undertook the stu
pendous work; It would be very easy
for him to dawdle through his term
and pose as President like bis proper
and respectable predecessor. r But tho
time demanded different work for him
the work of reforming and'slmplify-
ing a vast and demoralized bureaucracy
and reducing it to an honest business
basis. Ton weeks havo passed and
much has been accomplished. A large
nuraoer ot mo civil service bureaus
have been filled with good democrats
and with good inert. To the unreflect
lug million this may have seemed an
easy task, but when it is remembered
that tho time of the administration has
been occupied by battalions of delega-tions-presing
rival candidates, by of
fice seekers single, and ollico seekers in
mobs, all good democrats so called and
beautifully endorsed, it is remarkable
that time has been found to make tho
best selection. Most people I presume,
aro awaro that the mere fact of having
voted llio democratic ticket does not
fit a man for office where ho must per
form promptly and creditably a class
of work about which be knows nothing
more than he does of tho Russian lan
guage. When Mr. Cleveland came
luto office, tho first consideration wan,
using an old figure, to keep the ship of
state sailing smoothly and effectively,
making the best time and preserving
tho precious freight of uion and mer
chandise. Revenues had. to b collect
ed, Tho army, tho navy, pensions, tho
courts, and a vast civil list bad to bo
paid i the books must be kept and ten
thousand incidental processes requiring
skill aud experience had to. bo minute
ly carried out. Tho Piesident and his
Cabinet and hii party were unskilled
aud unexperienced in uxecutivo affairs.
Thoy havo as yet only a general idea
of what thoy havo to do. and what can
bo doiid. It is not anything to the (lis
paragomont of many of the bureau of
ficers that have been appointed to say
that they are helplessly dependent upon
their Republican subordinates in office
for information in tho commonest de
tails of their official duty. Thoy are at
tho head of the Bureaus, vast oiliceB
employing from one hundred to six
hundred clerks, nnd yet thoy know lets
than any of these clerks about tbo rou
tine of tho bureau.
It would then stem to bo not just
tho timo to discharge theso clerks who
however bad politically and personally,
havo a skill upon which tho now Ad
ministration will be dependent for a'
time, and nothing would be more rash
and ruinous than to Jill these offices at
onco with unskilled men, Tho post
offices throughout the country aro a
different claw of offices and they are
being filled at tho rato of about 100
per day, or just as rapidly as tho Post
master Gcueral can work.
A Traglo Belle
From tbo Washington Stir.
After the execution of Mrs. Surratt,
Payne, Hcrold and Alzerodt, July 5,
1805, near tho old prison In arsenal
grounds, tho rough scaffold used in tho
execution was torn down and nearly
all the timbers which composod it wero
used In the reconstruction of tho build
ings on tho grounds, most of them go
ing into tho floor of tho Btablcs. Tho
cross-piece, from, which tho ropes wero
hung, however, was removed by tho
master mechanic who was employed
thero and by him hidden under a big
pile of old lumber. There it lay for
nearly twenty years, entirely forgotten
by thoso who llnow what become of It.
Last week, however, in working about
tho grounds, tho veritable cross-piece
was found and recognized by tho man
who hid it. Ho was aided in this rec
ognition by tho places cut away whero
tho uprights were morticed to tho
cross-piece. A close scrutiny showed
oven tho marks left by the ropes with
which tho conspirators wero hung. Tho
wood was soft p'mo and its fibres wero
readily compressed by tho ropes. It
might bo supposed that relics from
this scaffold would bo eagerly sought
for by relio hunters, but such was not
tho case. Thero seemed to bo a dread
among the usually unscrupulous class
of touching or handling any of tho ma
terial, tho associations being of too
droadful a nature. Some years after
tho execution a proposition was mado
to assist in a fair given by a charitable
organization by havingcancs and other
articles mado from the remnants of tho
scaffold, but as soon a the managers
of tho fair learned tho origin of tho
articles tho offer was declined with
rather curt thanks. Thero is but littlo
left at tho arsenal to remind ono of
that memorable occasion. The old
prison, whero tho conspirators wero
confined and tried, has been entirely
remodeled, two completo houses having
boon mado from it. Ono is occupied
by General Ayres, tho commander of
the arsenal, and tho other by the exe
cutive officer. Tho latter is tho chapel
part, where tho trial was held. In 1867
tho remains of tho executed conspira
tors were removed to allow of changes
in tho grounds, and wore placed under
the flooring in tho prison. That por
tion of tho building is now used for a

Tho rebellion led by Riel in Canada
has collapsed with tho capturo of tho
leader, which' occurred last Friday.
Louis Riel is a picturesque character.
Both of his parents were white,but his
paternal grandfather married a full
blooded Indian woman, so that ho is
one-quarter Indian blood. His lather
was educated for the Catholic priest
hood, but gave up an ecclesiastical lifo
to become a leader of a half-breed in
surrection against tbo Hudson Bay
Company. Riel's mother was a sister
of Archbishop Taohe, of Winnipeg.
Riel was born at Wolf River, Can
ada, in 1837. A Mrs. Massoil, of Mon
treal, paid tho cost of his college edu
cation in that city. In col lego Riel
won the reputation of being a young
man of brilliant promise and ho gradu
ated second in his class. A classmate
describes him as n highly moral man,
brave as a lion, with a physique befit
ting'his character. Be is nearly six
feet in height nnd weighs abont 200
pounds. About tho year 1858 Riel
went to Minneapolis and he is remem
bered in St. Paul, Minn., where he was
for a timo employed as a clerk, by
many citizens who describe him as a
handsome man who spoko English and
French fluently and who had a good
knowledge of Latin.
When, in 18G7, the Hudson Bay
Company transferred its territory for
$1,500,000, the half-breed Bottlers on
the banks of tho Red nnd Assiniboin
Rivers, alarmed lest' thoy should bo
driven from their homes, which they
and their families had occupied for
many, many years, but to which thoro'
was often no legal title, organized with
Louis Riel at their hoad. They demaud-'
ed tho right to elect their own legisla
ture and a freo homestead and pre
emption law. Tho recently appointed
governor of Manitoba was driven from
the country by Riel's forces, and it-was
not until the summer of 1870 and the
arrival of Sir Garnet Wolseley with
British troops that Riel abandoned tho
forts which he had1 seized, and fled to
tho United States. Riel was banished
for fivo years, and this ended the Red
River Rebellion of 18G9.
Was au innocent man hanged ?
l'liii.ADKi.rin.v, May 18. Tho repub
lication hero this afternoon of a story
from tho Boston Jlerald of this morn
incr. in which it was asserted that n
criminal has confessed that ho commit
ed murder in this city for which an in
nocent man was hanged, caused somo.
thing ot a sensation. Tho crimo which
is thus revived wns tho murdor, six.
teen years ago, of Mary Mohrman, a
bright littlo girl of seven years, whoso
was found in a sack which had been
sunk in a pond. John Hanlon, a barb
er living near tho Mohrmans, was con
victed' mainly on tho testimony of t
fellow-prisoner whilo in Moyamonsing
rrison, oi having murdered tho child,
after liavintr Bubiected her to tho gross
est indignities, and ho was executed
tor tno supposed crime.
Thojloston paper trivfs what pur
ports to bo tho confession of a man
(whoso name it with-holds) that ho
murdered Mary Mohrman, and that
Uanlon was wholly innocent ot any
snare in me crime. The alleged con
fession hai been according to tho
JferaUTs statement, mado to a com
panion of the murderer, nud tho names
ahd evidences ot tho truth of tho story
aro said to bo in possession of the Bos
ton paper,
ino murder was a mysterious ono
and for somo time thero was no cluo to
tho murderer, nud allhouch 81.000 ro
ward was offered no arrests wore mado.
Finally a deteolivo who had shadowed
lianion caused his arrest, and bo was
placed in a cell with an Enclish con
vlct who, as ho testified, obtained from
him a confession that he killed the trirl.
Hanlon protested hts iuncjetico to tho
last, To-day ox-Altoruey-Gon, Brow
slur, who defended him, said that dur
ing tho trial ho wai convinced of Han-
Ion' innooence. Great interest is
manifested to know who tho mysterious

A New York Pol loem&n'g Crime.
Sergeant Crowloy of tho Now York
Police foree was oonviotcd in that city
Inst Friday of a heinous offonce, com
muted on a girl named Maggio Morris.
Maggio is a girl of seventeen, tho
daughter of a laboring woman and her
self n factory operative. Tho man
used tho authority of his official posi
tion to accomplish a crime. To pro
tect him from punishment ho rolled
upon a potent political influence, which
had saved him from desorved punish
ment before for other ofTcnccs. Tho
girl was poor, obscure, helpless.
When sho told her pitiful story to tho
fow friends about her perhaps never
did a caso givo less promise that just
ice would bo done. It happened fott
unalcly, however, that sho did after
wards tell her story to a Police Judgo
who listened with nttcntion and promt
ly issued a warrant for tho arrest of
tho accused officer.
Officer Crowley was put on trial on
Tuesday. Tho facts brought out by
tho trial, were these: Maggio received
an invitation from Cccfla Joyce, a
friend, to attend a ball on tho 25th of
April at Standard Hall. Two hours
alter midnight sho was introduced lo
Crowley, who was taking a night off
duty and enjoying himself in citizens'
clothes. He asked Maggio to dance,
but first said ho must havo refresh
ments. He took his companion to tho
refreshment room and tried to induce
her to drink whiskey. Sho refused.
"Wo cant drink here," Crowley said
to Bartender Blint. "There aro pco
plo watching mo and I don't want to
bo seen drinking," and tho barkeeper
said: "Of course you can go down
stairs." Then Crowloy pulled his
victim down tho stairs to a basement
room, dimly lighted. Ho ordered
whiskey for himself and mineral water
for tho girl. Miss Morris noticed
that there was whiskey in tho water
aud refused to drink. Tho bartender
went out and locked the door and then
the officer displayed his revolver, said
bo was a policeman and threatened
that ho would "fix her" if she made
any outcry. They remained thero for
a few moments until Maggie's friends
missed her and began a search. Blint
rushed down stabs.
"There's an awful row up there," ho
"Can't I get out tho front way !''
asked Crowloy.
"Of course," responded tho bartender,
and whilo Crowloy passed out upon
tho sidewalk Maggio rushed into the
arms of her friend, Celia Joyce, ex
claiming: "For God's Bake, kill mo I I am
Crowley on his own behalf, denied
that ho had assaulted Miss Morris.
Ho explained that ho had many ene
mies in tho district, did not want to
bo seen drinking and went to the
lower floor to escapo observation. One
of tho witnesses was Dr. Samuel
Mo Leod, who is the Burgeon of the
Fifth and Eighth precincts. Ho testi
fied that ho was called to tho Houso
of Detention in Mulberry stret at
four o'clock in tho afternoon of April
27 tho all edged assault was commit
ted on, tho morning of the 2Cth and
wa9 told that a charge of assault had
been made against Sergeant Crowley
and tbo Police Magistrate had direct
ed that the alleged victim of the out
rage should bo examined. In accord
ance with that order ho made an ex
amination of Miss Morris. There
were cvidenoes, tho doctor said, of
very recent violence, but tho object of
tho assault had not been fully accora
pliih'ed. Tie doctor testified at much
length and with technical details and
was sharply cross-examined. Record
er Smyth said that in order to consti
tute tho offence charged under the
statuto it was only necessary to show
that violence bad becu used and tho
attempt need not nessarily be com
pletely successful in order to constitute
the statutory crime.
Tho jurv was out but a fow mo-
mouts, and returned a verdict of guilty.
The New York World befriended the
helpless girl, and but for its efforts
her wrong might not havo been punish
ed. ' Tho case attracted unusual atten
tion in tho city. Crowley was sen
tenced on Monday to seventeen years
and six months in tho penitentiary.

Chicago, May 18. The seventeen-
year loousts, which Profesjor llallly
predicted, seem to have mado their
first appoarance here. They have
been found in large' numbers closo to

moving upwards. Tbo indications aro
strong,that,,an unusually largo swarm
will appear in a short time. Very
extensive apple orchards were planted

the effect that tho country would soon

of the village. On the day fixed Sam

far as tho eyo could reach were lined
with spectators. Ho was dressed in a
suit of white, and 1 will stato for tho
benefit of other fools of tho samo elms
that boforo lid leaped ho placed his
hands firmly-on his loins, then sprang
from tho shelving rock, and wont down
straight as an arrow. Ho came up

the shouts of thousands. A few dayn
later ho proposed another leap agaui.
Ho erected a scaffold twenty-live feet
high on the brink of thu falls, making
tho descent 125 feet. Ou the day

Shot by an Unknown,
Three months ago Gcorgo Bickcrt, a
German, who came to this country in
1881, located nt Lavcllc, Schuylkill
county, boarding with Mrs. David
Stringer a widow. Their relations soon
became Intimate and a month ago it
was reported that they had bece mar
ried. It was known that Rick
cit bad left a wife and three children
In Germany. Ono night a elrnngo
woman was seen to enter tho houso
where he lived and soon after two shots
were heard. Neighbors entered and
Mrs. Stringer, who wns nt tho village
store, camo with them. Biekeil was
found seated in a chair with blood
spurting from a wound near tho left
nipplo nnd another under tho left arm.
In front of him, on tho floor, lay n pis
tot witli two chambers empty." Tho
unknown woman had evidently retired
by tho back door and escaped during
the excitement.
Bickert was conscious and was press
ed for an explanation. Ho declined to
mako any statement and in a few mom
cots swooned from loss of blood. Dur
ing tho night he died. An officer was
put on tho case and liU theory
is that the Ge;man wife was written to
by somo person in Lavelle, who dis
covered his address, and that she came
hero prepared to kill and was aided by
a confederate.
Bobbing a Millionaire-
A bold robbery was committed at
tho residence of Charles Ray, tho mil
lionaire, on Prospect avenue, Milwau
kee, Wis1, last week. An experienced
cracksman visited the house, cut all
the telephone, telegraph, and burglar
nlarm wirei. and then cut his way
through the roar door. All tho fam
ily plalo was in tho vault, and could
not be reached. After searching the
lower part of tho houso tho masked
robber visited the servants' quarters
above, and awakened two girls who
wero in tho room. Ho held a revolver
at their heads, and made them go down
stairs and call Mrs. Ray, telling her
they wero sick. When Mrs. Ray
opened tho door tho burglar told her
if she uttered a word he would blow
her brains out. Sho was ordered to
call her husband, aud did bo. The
burglar made tho women stand in line,
under the penalty of death if they mov
ed. When Mr. Ray came down ho was
ordered to get all cash and jewelry,
which ho did, the burglar covering him
with a revolver. Jewelry and money
amounting to nearly S1.000 was hand
ed tho robber, which ho pocketed, and
then mado Mr. Ray escort him to tho
front door and let him out. Mr. Ray
afterward raised an alarm, but tho
thief had taken the 3 o'clock train for
Chicago and escaped.
Whilo Mr. Ray was going through
his pockets to get his watch, jewelry,
and money a littlo daughter who was
sleeping in tho samo room quietly left
her bed, gathered her own jewelry
from an escritoire, and, returning to
her bed, placed it under her pillow.
This was tho only jewelry in the houso
not locked up that escaped. It is said
that the loss is much heavier than re
ported. Mr. Ray is well known in
Chicago, whero he has a branch com
mission house. His residence is "bur
