Made by a Democratic Senator From
the" Still Solid Sunny South
BELIEVES THE SENATE TEDIUM.
Ewrn, of Georgia, Fearful of Free
Trade in the Eice Market
A DIFFERENCE 'WHOSE dl IS GOKED.
Rather an Unpalatable Dose for Many of His Col
It was a stupid Saturday in both branches
tf Congress. Tbe monotony of the tariff
discussion in the Senate was somewhat
broken by a protection speech made by Mr.
Brown, whose interest was evoked by the
eteep cut made in the duty on rice. Such a
cpeech from such a source was a little start
ling and withal amusing.
rSrECIAI. TELEGHAM TO THE DISPATCH.l
"Washes-gton-, January 19. Both
branches of Congress were wretchedly
'Etupid to-day, the woful tedium of the
fortification bill in the House being relieved
only by the lively tilt between General
Cutcheon, of Michigan,and General Butter
Jworth, of Ohio, in regard to the committee
(jurisdiction of the bill. Mr. Blount, who
was in the chair, ruled that the bill was
properly in the Appropriations Committee,
and that put an end to the only life there
was in the House during the day. The
House adjourned early, after passing
eulogistic resolutions on the death of E. "V.
Robertson, a member-elect irom Louisiana
to the Fiftieth Congress.
In the Senate the one diversion of the
day was the speech of the venerable Senator
Brown, of Georgia, on the subject of the
tariff. It was expected that Mr. Brown
would show some kindliness to the Republi
can side of the question, but not even those
who knew him best supposed the atjed Geor
gian would go bodily over to the high pro
tectionists. His speech was founded on an
amendment offered by himself, placing rice
at its present tariff of 24 cents per pound
for cleaned rice, and other grades in pro
portion. The Mills bill cnt rice down to 2
cents per pound, but the protectionists of
the Senate went much farther than the free
traders of the House, and cut it down to 1
cent per pound, of course to give the South
ern tariff reformers a wholesome dose of
their own medicine.
AN TJXUSDAIi SPECTACLE.
Mr. Brown asked leave to read his speech
Kitting in his chair, which has been his
practice almost invariablylately, so infirm
is Be growing, xie rcau iu a iceiue uiue,
but the spectacle oi a Democratic Senator
uttering radical protection sentiments was
bo unusual that the chamber was very quiet
and he was well heard throughout. While
Senator Brown announced in the beginning
that he was not an advocate of protection,
he soon discovered the "fact that he be
lieved the system was necessary for
the development and fostering of the infant
industries of the South. The North
was old in the manufacture of iron and
Eteel, but the South was just beginning,
and, as to rice, that, too, was an infant in
dustry under the present methods of produc
tion bv means of free labor. With slave la
bor they could compete with the coolie
labor of China, but with free labor they
would be driven from the home markets and
the markets of the world, without protec
tion. "White laborers could not endure to
work in the malarial rice fields, and the
negroes avoided it if they could; and the
consequence was that labor was high and
rice could not be produced at anything like
its former low price.
LISTENED TO INTENTLT.
The Senator was listened to with great in
terest by both sides bf the chamber, the Re
publicans smiling approvingly at the
specially strong passages. That part seemed
to be particularly pleasing in which he
urged that the South should adopt the policy
that had resulted in making the North so
ctrong and rich and great, instead of keeping
in the old rut and actually antagonizing
everything that was for their own good
Eimply because tariff reform had Seen made
a party cry.
From the Republican standpoint it was
certainly the most progressive speech that
lias been heard from a Democrat during the
Fiftieth Congress. The Democrats did not
take to it kindly at all. Disgust and scorn
was depioted on their faces, and Mr. Rea
gan, who sits directly behind Mr. Brown,
was forced soon to escape from the un
musical sound of a Democratic protective
tariff speech and walk the lobby in agoniz
ing study. Mr. Vance took his place, how
ever, and with the exception of t frequent
negative shakes of the head and whispered
consultations, the Democratic circle stood
the unpalatable dose to the end, when the
aged Democrat was warmly congratulated
by the Republicans.
Though all of the items which have not
been touched in the tariff bill cannot by
any means be considered before the hour
for taking the vote next Tuesday, Senator
Allison says there will be no further exten
sion of time. The time of the Senate has
been consumed by buncombe speechmaking,
and they will therefore have to treat vgry
briefly the woolen schedule and paragraphs
that have been passed.
WTXI, BE HUEEIED TO THE END.
It is the intention to hurrv the bill to the
House at once. The major part of it has
leen already engrossed by the clerks of the
Senate, and soon after the final vote is taken
the substitute will be on its way to the
House. There its fate depends on its treat
ment in committee. It is hardly possible
that a vote will be taken on it by the House.
To-day, beside the rice schedule, the para
graph relating to pocket-knives, razors, and
guns were finally amended. The former,
which was agreed to without discussion,
reads as follows:
173. Penknives or pocket-knives of all kinds,
or parts thereof, wholly or partly manufac
tured, valued at not more than SO cents per
dozen, 12 cents per dozen; valued at more than
M cents per dozen and not exceeding $2 per
oozen, 38 cents per dozen; valued at more ihan
2 per dozen, 60 cents per dozen; and in ad
dition thereto on all the above, 50 per centum
ad valorem. Razors and razor-blades, finished
or unfinished, valued at not more than fS4 per
cozen, SI 23 per dozen; and in addition thereto,
on all the above razors and razor-blades, 30 per
centum ad valorem. '
On motion of Mr. Allison the gun para
graph (181), was amended by making the
tax on guns valued at not more than $6
each, ?2; valued at more than 56 and not
more than 512 each, $4; valued at more than
$12 each, $6 each; and, in addition thereto,
35 per cent ad valorem making the tax on
fcingle-barrel breechloading shotguns $1 and
35 per cent ad valorem; and on revolving
pistols, valued at not more than Si 50 each,
40 cents; and valned at more than $1 50
each, ?1, with 35 per cent ad valorem, in

The Dispatch's staff correspondent at
Washington telegraphs: It is whispered
about that a disposition to harmony struck
Pennsylvania Republican leaders something
after the volume of a tidal wave. The de
feat of the party in 1884, its resurrection
last November, the prominent part played
by Pennsylvania leaders in the national
campaign, the importance of harmony in
the interests of success and the new hopes
and aspirations of all Republicans have, jt
isaid, led to a broader and more catholic
spirit, and there is a prospect that many old
coolnesses will be warmed into renewed
The friendliness of Senators Cameron and
Quay, exhibited this week toward ex
Secretary Blaine, has led to a somewhat
critical analysis of the relations ofa number
of Pennsylvania leaders among themselves
and to leaders of other States, and a bit of
the gossip that crops out in this connection
is that there is about to be a renewal of re
cinrocitv between Senator Quay and Mr. C.
L. Magee. It is asserted that the old and
cordial friendship between these eminent
leaders, disrupted by disputes in regard to
the selection of candidates, would have been
renewed long ago had it not been for the
fact that certain friends of each of the men
were interested in keeping them apart.
A EECONCILIATION EFFECTED.
A mutual friend of Messrs. Cameron,
Quay and Magee assures the correspondent
of The Dispatch that Cameron has taken
the matter in hand with the determination
to bring the two gentlemen together. Mr.
Magee was here a short time ago and in
conversation with Senator Cameron, who
urged upon him the importance of har
mony, expressed himself in sympathy with
Cameron's -views, and assured the Senator
that he was quite willing to meet Senator
Quay half way.
In the room of the Naval Committee, of
which Senator Cameron is Chairman, Mr.
Magee met young Dick Quay, the Senator's
son, and had a very pleasant and confiden
tial chat with him. The Senator himself
was absent from the city at the time, or it is
Erobable the reunion would have been cele
rated before the departure of the brilliant
Pittsburger, but it is believed that Sen
ator Cameron has established the en
tente cordiale ' in the minds ot the
differing leaders, and that at the first op
portunity they will re-cement their old and
sincere friendship, and join hands to nomi
nate and elect Hon. George Wallace Dela
xnater Governor of Pennsylvania, as well as
to do certain other little things in the way
of good party management.
The friends of Quay, Magee and Cameron
in this city are very much gratified by the
prospect that the unpleasant disagreement
of the junior Pennsylvania Senator and the
brilliant Pittsburg leader is soon to be
bnried. E. W. L.
A WILD ENGINE'S TRIP.
Running 60 Miles nn Hour, It Dashes Into a
Train at Bcllairc.
Wheeling, January 19. One of the
most unique accidents ever recorded hap
pened on the Cleveland, Lorain and Wheel
ing Railroad, just over the river, at noon
to-day. The yard engine was left on the
track with steam up, while the crew went to
dinner. In some unknown way, it is sup
posed by the tampering of small boys, the
throttle was opened just as a passenger train
?assed, and the switch was thrown open,
lie engine qnickly acquired momentum
until it was dashing along at a speed of CO
miles an hour over the crooked track, for
the most part built on high trestles.
Over the river it whizzed, and past the as
tonished people along the line clear to
Bellaire, five miles from the starting place,
where it crashed into a long train of freight
cars heavily laden with coke. The engine
was demolished, and it rained coke for rods
in all directions, the train being broken into
atoms. By the merest accident nobody was
hurt, but the money loss is heavy.

AN AGE WITHOUT ITS POWDER 0E PAIKT
There are touches of vanished hands,
Sounds of voices that ara stilled,
felt and heard by native Pittsbnrgers of
middle age or upward when they pore over
the quaint old catalogues of the old Edge
worth Seminary, the first school of its char
acter "in the West," or believed to be, at
least, by its founders. After the removal
from "Braddocksfield" in 1836 to Sewick
ley, the catalogue informs-us that the loca
tion was much more easy of access thaa
that of Braddocksfield; that the stage coach
to and from Pittsburg to Beaver passed
daily, and that for healthfulness and gen
eral serenity and comfort the location was
unsurpassed. More stress than now seems
to have been laid on the moral training of
pupils, at least it was more dwelt upon in
prospecti than at present, and the import
ance of blending moral with intellectual
culture strongly pressed. .
The French Revolution, or Reign of
Terror, as it was generally styled at that
time, was, alter the lapse of half a century,
a more recent topic for discussion than
would a similar tragedy be to-day five years
after date, and pulpit and press were firmly
convinced then, generally speaking, that
moral teaching would serve to keep down
an emeute among the people even if they
did not get a chahce for their white alley,
and might have nothing left for support
after taxes were paid. Then, too, half a
century ago, the friction felt in the last 25
years by employer and employe in their re
lations was not felt. The virgin United

In 1839 and 1810 more well-known names
appear, names that seem to belong to this
neighborhood. The Misses Micheltree and
Broadmeadow seem to have had no brothers,
for the name is no longer found in the Pitts
burg directory. There were the Bruces, the
Adamses', the latter of the family who pre
sented the Byardstown market place to the

also the Coltarts, Dilworths, Nevius, Bheys,
etc. The Rhey girls, Jane and Mary, of
the session of 1838, were sisters of
George Rhey, now ot the Cambria Iron

IN REMINISCENT TEIN.
Tbo Following Communication, From a Ven
erable Citizen, Is Quito Apropos.
To the Editor of The Diipatch:
Among the many precious relics of Pittsburg
and Allegheny county, deserving to be rescued
from oblivion, the early history of Edgeworth
Seminary and Its gifted foundress, Mrs. Mary
Olver, should have a prominent place. This
lady, one of England's most cultured and re
fined daughters, emigrated to this country with
her husband, James Olver, about 1820, and alter
a sojourn in Illinois returned to Pittsburein
1825. 8he was hero induced to open a school
for young ladies. In the fall of that jear, with
three day scholars, she opened the first session
of the Edgeworth Ladies' Seminary. Under her
beneflcient auspices the institution soon filled
-up, and was conducted successfully a few years
in the city. The school was then removed to
what was at that time called Braddock's Fields,
and located in what is now the elegant mansion
of Mr. Allen Kirkpatrick. Manyaiterauonsana
repairs have been made in the building; but still
it is the seminary, a kind of mecca to which
the hearts of the few living scholars turn with
loving sadness. The beautiful location, con
nected with its pathetic military history
rendered It peculiarly suitable at that time for
such an institution. The first catalogue of the
seminary known to be in existence was issued
April, lm. A few extracts will give some
idea of its character and aims:
"It is now nearly ten years since Edgeworth
Seminary was first established. It stood for
some time the only institution of the kind, in
this section of the United States, and may
claim the praise accordingly of having led the
way, in this great sphere of useful action, to
the other institutions which have since come
into being, with the growing prosperity of the
country, and are now sharing with it the solemn
and deeply responsible task of educating the
female mind of the West."
Mrs. Oliver was most deeply impressed with
the priceless value of the young ladles commit
ted to her, as a further quotation from this cat
alogue will show: "Music painting and draw
ing are poor accomplishments in comparison
with right sentiments and right feelings In the
soul. These moral advantages, too, are de
pendent on education, full as much as the
other; and all training must be attended with
INFLUENCE ON CHARACTER,
good or bad, whether this enter into its design
or not. It will be a great advancement in the
state of society, when parents generally will be
disposed to consult as jealously for the moral
schooling of their children, as they now are for
having them provided with lower accomplish
ments; and when female seminaries, andac-
cademels for boys also, will not only be suifered,
but aDsoiuteiv required to maxe me cultivation
of the heart a'n object of systematic regard, not
merely as a part, but as the ruling and leading
part of the entire system."

In that year Mr. and Mrs. Olver purchased a
part of the beautiful estate of Mr. Shields, at
Sewickley, and commenced the erection of
spacious and commodious buildings as a perma

it was removed in the autumn of that year

a week of excitement and enthusiasm that will strike Pittsburg from center to circumference. But here are the facts.
During their annual stock taking recently Kaufmanns noted with surprise the many brokeii lines and lots of Clothing
and Cloaks, and odds and ends of 'Shoes, Hats and Furnishing Goods. These broken sizes, though, which in them
selves are prima facie evidence of the big business we did the past season (for remnants, as everybody knows, will in
variably collect in a busy store), are not as desirable merchandise for us as if we had full lines of them. We there
fore took them in stock at from one-half to one-third of what we paid for them, and have concluded to close them out at
these greatly reduced prices this week. Knowing that this sale will draw big crowds, we have, in order to facilitate
matters for us as well as for our patrons, arranged a system whereby the hroken sizes of each department will be closed
out on a differ eut day of the week. The fun will commence by our placing on sale otir broken sizes of

ARE YOU AMONG THE NEWLY MARRIED COUPLES?
I Or are you contemplating matrimony? Marriage is not a failure by any
means, it is a great success since even a poor man can buy an entire
housekeeping outfit at our popular Household Furnishing Bazaar and

OLD RELIABLE HOUSE,
To-Morrow, Monday, Only.
Don't think the price is an indication of the quality of the
goods, for these Boys' Overpoats are worth double and treble the
price we sell them for $1 29. They are, to be frank, the remain
ders of various fine lines of Overcoats which before Christmas were
sold at $2, $3 50, $4, $4. 50 and $5. Like the Men's so the Boys'
Overcoats have all been collected on one counter, and you can
come in any hour to-morrow, Monday, and take your choice for
only $ 1 29. There are all sizes among them and we can fit any boy
from 4'to 19 years old. This offer, however, is open for to morrow,
Monday, only. It won't do to wait and postpone, but you must
come to-morrow, if you want one. At this giving-aw'ay price of
$1 29 these coats will go like hot cakes. Ask the floor-walker to
show you to the $1 29 counter, when you come in, to avoid mistakes.
