A bill passed tlio Legislature on Wednesday appropriating $5000, for a temporary hospital at Plymouth. Among tho appropriation bills that passed the house finally on Wednesday, was that of $08,000 lor the Danvillo hospital. Ex. Secretary Frclicphuyscn died at his homo in Nowark, N. J. on Wed nesday ovoning, about half past five o'clock. E. J. Phelps, tho now Minister to England, landed at Southampton last Friday, and was warmly welcomed by tho authorities. Gov. Hill of Now York has called tho 4th session of tho lcgislaturo to provide for tho taking of a census, as required by the constitution. Tno trial ot Burton and Cunning ham in London for causing dynamite explosions in tho Tower and West minister came to an end on Monday, and resulted in a conviction. Both men were sentenced to penal servi tude for life. When sentenco was pronounced both declared their inno cence. The nsual semi-weekly conferenoo of Drt. Shrady and Douglas took placo Wednesday afternoon in General Grant's houso. Tho throat of the Gen cral was examined, and the doctors found no marked change. Somo part ot tho swelling below the ear has sub sided, and less pain is the result. Sinco Sunday tho general has experienced none of the darting pains that fast week centered at the ear. The executive committee at Ply mouth reported that on May 5, there wero 841 cases of typhiod fever. Since that date 04 now cases have been re ported making 905. Thero have been 55 deaths in tho past two weeks, leav ing 850 cases, 134 being convalescent. A majority of tho sick aro improving but many aro yet critical. Destitute families to tho number of 24C, are ro ceiving aid. The total disbursements havo been $5,100. Thero wero four deaths Wednesday afternoon. Collector Chase's removal has given much satisfaction to thoso who did not like him. It is difficult for a rovenuo collector to make himself popular with tho public. The office should bo abol ished, because thero is no longer any necessity for it. Gazelle and Jiulle tin. Tho first part of tho above is un doubtedly correct, but it has taken the Gazette and Bulletin a long time to find out that tho office should be abol ished. Xiko all other republican or gans it thought thero was necessity for all offices that garo employment to partisan officials, bnt when its party is kicked out, and tho offices aro being taken from the politicians it finds there is no longer any uso for them. Tho Dolphin, a ship built by John Roach for tho government, is likely not to bo accepted, as it has mado four trial trips, and each time has failed Lo come un to the requirements of the con 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 mado hin rich in tho way of campaign subscriptions. The Chandlers aro not running the Navy now. 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 the lower houso of congress as a dem ocrat boforo tho war. After tho war ho returned to tho houso as a republi can, serving two terms. Ho was then, In 1871, transferred to tho senate, but at tho expiration of his first term, in 1877, was defeated for roclectlon. Two years later, however, ho again secured a seat in tho scnato for tho full term which closod in Maroh of this year.

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. Thus tho matter remains for tho pre sent. WASHINGTON LETTER. 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 DISCOVERT OP A FRAOMENTOF MRS. tt'R- ItATTS SCAFFOI.b TIIF. EXECU TION IIF.OAI.LEH. 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 storehouse Tho spot whero tho scaffold stood is now included in a lawn tennis court, and as tbo young ladies and genttemen gaily disport themselves in tho attrac tive game of tennis on plcasaut after noons they littlo think what a tragedy was enacted a score of years ago upon tho very spot upon which they stand. 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 ? A SENSATIONAL CONFI'.SSION REVIVING THE BTORV OF AN AUIOST FOR GOTTEN CRIME. 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 personijft U who now confesses him self guilty of tho almost forgotten ei line. 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 said. "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 ruined." 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. LoctiBts in Illinois. Till'. SEVENTEEN-YEAH RAVAOER3 PRK- IICTKl 11V PROFESSOR REIIXV, APPEAR. 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 tho suriace of the ground, and aro moving upwards. Tbo indications aro strong,that,,an unusually largo swarm will appear in a short time. Very extensive apple orchards were planted uy uaiHiuiisia una spring,' arm a largj eruptiou of locusts will almost certain ly kill them, Professor Heilly's prediction was to the effect that tho country would soon bo visited by two great broods of lo custs, of the seventeen and thirteen year varilies, and '.hat this is the first timo in 221 ycais that they have np appoarod inuonjunction, Thoy will not prove greatly destructive,, and tho in jury thoy will infiie will probably bo confined to fruit, trees.

Sam Patch, tho famous jumper and diver came there in the tall, we will say, of 1818, and propos ed to leap from tho falls in the heart of the village. On the day fixed Sam appeared.

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 feet foremost, aud swam ashore amid the shouts of thousands. A few dayn later ho proposed another leap agaui.

IIICKERT REFUSING TO EXPLAIN. 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 glar proof," and, tho finest in Milwau kee. MARRIAGES. OHL-YOCUM.-On Slay 5, 1885, by Rev. 8. Mllcliel', S. Howard Ohl, of Buckhorn anil Mary M. Yocum of Blooms, burg.
