O0NQRE83I0NAL DISTBIUT MATTERS.
It is tlmo that eonio mens were tak
en toward tbo organization of this con
sroaslonal dlstnct tor eonlcrcnoo par
posos. Tho district Is composed oi
Northumberland, Colnmbia, Montour
and Sullivan counties, and as it la a
now distriot thoro are as yet no rales
which fix the number of conferees

tno oonlorcnoe, nor any of tno details.
The chairmen of the respective county
committees should hold ajmeeting; and
agree upon something definite.
from oar Regular Correspondent.
Wasiiinotok, May 7th, 1888.
Spoakor Carlislo and the member
of the House Coiumitteo on rules,(with
the exception of Mr. Randall, who is
confined to his room with an attack, of
rheumatism), held a long consultation
on Saturday on the order of busineas
before the House. They decided that
no day would be designated for the
consideration of any other measure un
til the general debate on tho Mills tar
iff was concluded. If no interruption
shall occur it will close on one week
from tomorrow, Tuesday the fifteenth,
inst. Then it is thought- some appro
priation bills will bo taken up and pas
sed, before tho debate on sections of
the bill begins.
The democratic members of the
House are to hold, a caucus Wednet
day evening for the purpose of discus
sing and deciding what amendments
snail be accepted to the Mills bilL An
effort will bo made to get all ot the
democrats into this caucus, but it is
very doubtful whether those members,
who represent protection districts will
be willing to be bound in caucus ac
tion in this matter.
Since his famous fight with Senator
iDgalls last week Senator Voorheea has
been confined to his room with a malig
nant carbuncle on his leg. He is now
muoh bettor. His disappearance from
the Capital gave rise to the rumor, at
first, that be bad gone to Indiana.
The Indiana democratic association
of this city have adopted resolutions
thanking Senator Voorhees for his fear
less and patriotic defense of Gens. Han
cock and McClellan and his masterly ar
raignment and exposure of Senator In
gallaand tendering himapublio recept
ion as a tribute of admiration. The same
association gave a reception on Thurs
day evening to Representative Maison,
who was recently nominated by the
democrats for Governor of Indiana.
The bill which has already passed
the House prohibiting the employment
of alien labor on public works baa been
favorably reported by the Senate com
mittee on education and. labor.
The President and tho Cabinet have
been invited to attend the centennial
of the establishment of civil Govern
ment in tho Northwestern States, to be
held at Marietta Ohio, July 15th.
Senators Evarta of New York and
Daniels of Virginia, are on the pro
gramme for speeches.
Shortly after the democratic caucus
broke the recent deadlock in the
House, it was suggested that a testi
monial be presented to Representative
Enloe, of Tennessee, who picked the
lock by procuring all tho signatures
that were necessary to call the caucus.
The result of that suggestion is a un
ique watch charm, consisting of a gold
lock and key, whioh has been presented
to him by Mr. Cox, the chairman of
the caucus and which he highly prizes.
There is a republican soheme on
hand to bring about another deadlock
in the House. Senator Spooner has
offered an ammendment to the Sundry
Civil Appropriation bill, which is sub
stantially the direct tax bill which
caused the late deadlock in the House.
Should the Senate pass the amended
appropriation bill, it then goes back to
the House for concurrence in the
amendment. Should the House concur,
it will gain the point which it lost to
the filibustered during the deadlock
but the chances are that the filibuster
era would again begin their dilatory
actions, tnus losing much more valu
Another good appointment is placed
to tho credit of President Cleveland.
The more that Is learned of Mr. Fuller,
the newly nominated Chief Justioe, the
better bu appointment is liked. W bile
be has not yet accepted tho position, it
is not doubted that he will, and it is
probable that he will be confirmed by
the Senate this week, so that be can
take his seat before the adjournment
ot the Suprome Court which will take
place in a few days.
Tbo bill confining the sale of the
products of convict labor to the Btate
in which they are produced has been
favorably reported to tho Honse.
The President is said to to much
pleased with the arguments advanced
by the democratic members of the
House in favor of tbo Mills tariff bill.
The last speech w ill bo delivered by
The House committee on Manufac
tures has concluded its investigations
of the Standard Oil Trust. Some o(
the members favor an immediate report
on oil and sugar.
The new Ciiin se Treaty will prob
ably ba ratified by the Sesalo during
tbe present week.
It is thought that tho Bla'r Eduoa
tional bill will not bo heard front again
during this session,
The conferees on the bill providing
for a Congress of American nation
have reached an agreement upon the
one point at issue. Tho President is
authorized to appoint the ten Ameri

Is Dom Pedro Insane?
A. FAMOUS FRENCH MAD DOCTOU SUMMON

Milan, May 7, The Emperor of
Brazil is suueriog from Inflammation
of the kidneys, lie is attended by Dr.
Verga, of Milan, l)r. oemmola, ot .Nap

Judging by the fact that Dr. Char
cot, of Paris, is perhaps the greatest
living authority on diseases of tho
niind, and that bis name is principally
associated with La Salporriere Insaue
Asvlum at Paris, it would appear that
tbo rumors concerning tbo failure of
the Emperor of Brazil's once brillant
mental faculties have somo foundation.
It has been repeatedly alleged and as
frequently officially denied during the
past few months that Dom Pedro's in

is at present ruled by c Regent.

The following dispatch from New
York appeared In the Philadelphia
Timet of Saturday: I have entirely
reliablo Information that the friend of
ltlaino have, within tho last .three days,
recoived direct fiom hlra his assent to
an aggressive movement for hit renonj
lnallon for President, and the assur
ance that if nomlnato-1 in the face of
his, Florence letter of declination, he
would not feel at liberty to decline.

Erdofy'i Smith and others, for two

mojor oi a pasivo canaiaaie. ine
WaflbinKtoirconfercnco was only part
of the varied methods by which Influ
ences have been brought to bear upon
uiaior, Hull lue puuiiuiuiuu ui uim i-
iralt. freshly taken from life in Italy
and issued by Judge this week, was
decided on moro than n month ago as
the starting poiht for the avowed effort
to inane iiiaiuu macnnuiuMe.
Evtfrv Dossible nrcssure has been put
upon BJaine to get from him the direot
assurance that he will not decline if
nominated, and that anurance has
been received in thit city from Blaine
within the latt three dayt. In a very
few days mure it will cease to be a
secret that Blaine is In the hands of
his friends, as the Blaine leaders will
at once come to the front and make an
aggressive campaign for his renomlna
tion. This movement has been pretty
clearly forest adowed for some weeks
in tauch Blaine oroans as the TribUne
of this city and the Philadelphia Pros
and all affectation about Blaine's can
didacy will now soon be thrown off
and the battle made an aggressive one.
Part of the original programme was
the election of Cbarles Emory Smith
as a deleeate-at large from your State;
and the failum was a great disappoint
meht to the Blaine junto in this city;
bat Mr. Smith gives the assurance that
Blaine can command a majority of the
Pennsylvania delegation under any
cirenmstaeces, and that if Blaine
nomination shall seem to be assured,
the delegation will be solid for him.
The unexpected expression in Mass
achusetts and Vermont for Blaine were
not accidental, nor were tbey unexpec
ted to Blaine's friends. When all the
anti-Blaine men were reposing on their
arms because tbey regarded uiaino as
oui of the fight, tho friends of Blaine
were most energetio in their work in
the two anti-Blaine New England
States, and they got possesion of Ver
mont and Massachusetts While the
others were sleeping in fanoied secur
ity, it was the expression or those
hitherto anti-Blaine' New Englasd
States that made Blaine cast aside his
dohbta" and assent to the importunities
otihis friends for bis renomination.
It is now a positive fact that Blaine
is in the field; that his friends have
bis assent to a movement in his favor,
and that he will be nominated at Chi
cago if hard work and plenty ot enthu
siasm can accomplish it."
A Princely Gift-
JOHN WANAMAXEK DIVIDES THE FKOI"
ITS OF niS BUSINESS WITH
John Wanamaker Monday night
presented 272 employes all of those
whose names are upon the roll of
honor each with an envelope contain
ing a check, as a part of the past
year's profits of the concern. The en
tire amount given to tho 272 persons
was 94U,zbi.u! or an average of near
ly $150 to aoh. In addition to this
he appointed John F. Collins, George
W. Melmann, John Ramage, Frank
M. Caldwell and Robert O Ogden as
trustees of a pension fund, to whom
he handed a check for $10,000.
'This fund is to be nsed for the per
manently disabled, who, by reason of
old age or accident in tho service, are
no longer able to work. The trustees
have full power to decide who shall
be placcd'upon the pension roll and
what amounts they shall be paid.
During the year there, were paid to
1800 employes special percentages
over their nsual salaries amounting to
$59,158.06, making in all, including
the amount paid into the pension fund
and the $40,281.02 paid to tke persons
whose names are on the roll of honor
a total for the year, according to the
plan originally proposed by bim on
April 8, 1888. of $109,439.68.
At Mr. Wanamaker's invitation
about four thousand employes were
assembled on the north side of the
store, on the sucond floor. Two hun
dred and seventy-two seats were re
served for those whose names appear
ed upon the roll of honor. When Mr.
Wanamaker appeared at 8 o'clock
there was an outburst of applause,
whioh was repeated at intervals during
bis remarks exnlaining bis obiecta and
the plans of co-operation be had deoi-
dod upon. There are two new prop
ositions. One of these provides for a
system ot promotion, a sort of practi
cal civil service plan. The other is a
new plan of saving fund.
'In regard to the "Good Friday"
plana Air. w anamaker said: "The ex
peotation now is to continue through'
out this year on the basis of last year
the monthly dividends, with the same
rato of percentages on the increase of
business over the year 1887, and the
honor roll will have added to it all
whose term of service reach seven
years and they shall become sharers in
whatever annual distribution is made."

A Parly of Swindlers.
People should beware of the quack doc
tors who travel about the country giving
free shows In the streets and resorting to
other methoils of a similar character in
order to sell their so-called medicines. But
It seems "the Amtrlcan people will be
humbugged" and most of these traveling
quacks by using, a tew oily words and per
suasive arguments are cnabb-d to sell their
stuff. We take the following frcm an ex.
change: A mountebank, calling himself
Texas Charlie, swindled several persons
who attended a free show he gave in West
Chester borough, fie sold medicines and
then gave some of the first purchasers their
money back. This caused a crowd to
gather, and then he offered a silver watch
to every purchaser of $1 worth of his
medicine. About 100 people gave hlra as
many dollars for a tin watch, with a paper
face and tin hands.
A fellow going by the same name, and
probably, tbe same man, accompanied by
two others, gave a free "performance" and
sold medicine in a wagon on Murkel Square
Wednesday night of last week. Wo un
derstand he sold quite a large amount ot
his "medicine." The party left town early

seems to be wandering around tho cor

some of the moro timid and supersti

night, while Warden Brockway and
Deputy Smith were sitting in tho main

loud cries from tho corridor in which
the long-terra prisoners are kept. Up'
on arriving in tho corridor tho discov

Not long after, watchman MoDon-

cries proceeding from Jones' new

the cold beads of perspiration stand

Volkaviloh's ghost had again appeared
to him. He was taken into another
