A large number of bills passed first and

despite the fact that only 15 Senators -were
present, and a roll call would hare shown
how far the body was from baring a

signed 66 bills, against 30 at the same time

Habeisbxteo, April 27. The Senate met
this morning with about 15 Senators pres
ent, and passed a large number of bills on
first and second reading. The fact that
there was no quorum was not officially de
veloped, and everybody was happy. The
Senators who were not present knew before
hand what was coming up, and if they did
not they will have a chance at it on third
reading, when the yeas and nays must be
called and a full quorum vote for a bill be
fore it can be passed, except in the case of
an appropriation bill, when a two-thirds
vote is required.
Many amusing scenes were witnessed the
past week during the passage of appropria
tion bills on third reading in both House
and Senate. One hundred and twenty-six
votes are required to pass an appropriation
bill in the former and 37 in the latter. At
various times in either House there were
few more than those members present, and
it would not, therefore, have taken many
TO DEFEAT A BILL
for lack of a constitutional majority. Con
sequently, just before each roll call the
member orTfiembers particularly interested
in a measure rushed wildly hither and
thither between cloakrooms, smoking rooms
and lobbies, inducing members to come in
to vote. As nearly every man who was not
out of town is interested in some appropria
tion or other, responses were prompt, it ex
pectation of a return of the favor.
The spirit of the constitution, if not its
letter, is continually set at defiance in the
matter of the reading of bills, and if the
clerks don't defy it the members are quick
to note the failure and resent it. Some
times it only takes a very few minutes to
read a long bill. This morning in the
Senate the bill lor the government of cities
of the third class was rushed through in ten
minutes. An hour would be very good time
in which to dispose of it. "When the gen
eral revenue bill was up in the Senate there
were only a few sections on which there was
a difference of opinion. These disposed of,
the remaining sections made as quick time
as did the municipal bill to-day.
THE TBICX ET IT.
There is a trick in this, of course. The
clerk reads a few lines of the section, mum
bles a little, the question is put, and the
section is approved. Several times when
the Senators thought the clerk wasjpending
too much time on a section they called out
aye and sbut him ofC In the House it is
rarely, except on first reading, that this is
done. The Senate originates less legisla
tion than the House, and only a small por
tion of- the-bills introduced in the House
reach the Senate. Then the representatives
from a given Senatorial district keep their
Senator well informedof the legislation they
are interested in that is coming to the Sen
ate. He then keeps his friends in the Sen
ate as well informed concerning it as they
do him on matters in which they are inter
ested. Consequently, when a measure comes
ED they know all about it, and know
just what they want to do. This accounts
for much of the milk in the cocoanut

The Project of Bemorlng; the Delaware
Hirer Islands Not In Fnror.

Habbisbttrg, April 27. There is con
siderable likelihood that the harbor im
provement bill, which appropriates $200,000
for the removal of the Delaware river islands,
will be defeated now in the Senate. Sev
eral of the Philadelphia Senators will op
pose it. The ground will be taken in oppo
sition, that there is no use to appropriate
this money until some provision has been
made for the extension of the wharves to
the new harbor line. The PhiladelDhia
Senators have been overwhelmed with let
ters from property owners along the river
front, protesting against the passage of the
bill. Senator Penrose says :
"Suppose we do give this money, and the
islands are dng out; it will simply make a
. huge basin there, to be refilled. It will cost
probably 510,000,000 to extend the wharves
to the new harbor line, and the question is.
who is going to pay for it? It is a settled
fact the State will not. Then, again, no
provision is made for the compensation of
the damages that occur."
The Senators who have inquired into this
Suestion have become suddenly surprised at
ie magnitude of the question and the im
mense expense that looms up with it The
bill will probably be reached in the Senate

fHABRlSBURG, April 27. Senator Bey

struction of the new reformatory at Hun

it dear at half that figure, and says it is

Habrisbubo, April 27. Among the bills
signed within the past two days is one for
the renewal and extension of State banks,
some of whose charters are about expiring.
It is intended to particularly apply to Phil
adelphia and Pittsburg banks.
The Governor has also approved a joint
resolution providing for the appointment
of three Senators and four members of the
House, to investigate the charitable and
correctional institutions ot the State, for the
purpose of setting some limit to the great
and constantly increasing demands upon
the Treasury for the furtherance of a great

are of doubtful utility, and of securing a
systematic and efficient administration of
the institutions which legitimately come

T,he Governor has also approved the fol

back on the former to give Pittsburgers a

cerning the latter, he has grave doubts. The
bill is the one giving oil companies the
right to buy, sell and hold stock in other oil
and natural gas companies. The bill loots
much like one to legalize oil and natural gas
trusts. The plea is presented for it that
often a company chartered to drill for oil

THE BROOKS ACT DOOMED.
Jndfi-o White's Ruling's Hare Their Effect on
tFKOM A STAFF CORRESPONDENT.!
Harrisbcrg, April 27. Those who are
in a position to speak declare that the
coming two years will wind up the Brooks
act, and that the next Legislature will be
called upon to consider an act which
will place the maximum license fee at
$1,000. There is no doubt but that the
radical rulings of Judge "White in the Pitts
burg License Court had considerable in
fluence toward inducing the Senate to lib
eralize the Brooks act by amendments to
the Fow bill on Thursday.
The amendment which empowers, in case
of a release or sale of a premises in which is
located a saloon or hotel, the purchaser or
the lessee to apply for a license, is thought
to be a pernicious one,as it will enable crafty
landlords to freeze out tenants and secure
their licenses for themselves.
The Inter-Stnte Commerce Commission Will
Investigate tbe Alleged Discrimina

More or Less.
Washington, April 27. In consider
ing the case of the complaint of George
Bice, petitioner, versus the Louisville and
Nashville Bailroad Company, defendant,
the Inter-State Gommerce Commission las
found that in addition to the question of tbe
reasonableness of rates, the. following other
questions are also raised: '-"
That of the proper classification of cotton,
seed oil and turpentine as compared with pe
troleum and its products: of discrimination In
favor of petroleum and its products when car
ried in tank cars, resulting in giving a lower
rate than on cottonseed oil nr turpentine when
carried as back-loading in snch tank cars; and
that of the duty of railroad companies to f Or
nish sbinpers with tank cars in cases where
tb e traffic of their lines can profitably or prop
erly be carried in such tans: cars, and is large
enough to justify the expenditure.
It also appears to the commission that
these questions are such as may effect the
business directly or indirectly of nearly all
the railroads in the country over which these
articles are shipped, and the commission as
sumes that carriers only are interested in
these questions. In order therefore to avoid
a multiplicity of complaints and to secure
as far as possible a settlement of all these
questions that may be general and just, and
in order to give all the railway companies
of the country an opportunity to be heard,
they have all been duly notified that the
matter is underconsideration, and that their
views will receive attention.

NO SUNDAY EXCURSIONS.
Sabbatarians Succeed In Stopping One, and
the Railroad Superintendent Resigns.
(SPECIAL TXI.XOBAX TO TBI DISPATCH.l
Port Jebvts, N. Y., April 27. Great
surprise was caused in this place to-day by
the announcement that an excursion trip to
Ellenville over the PortJervis, Monticello
and New York and Ontario and "Western
Bailroads, advertised for Sunday, had been
abandoned and that Superintendent Charles
Clark, of the Monticello, had inconsequence
of the company's action in annulling ar
rangements made by him with a view of
promoting the best interest of tbe company,
tendered his resignation, and that the com
pany had promptly accepted the same.
Opposition to the excursion is supposed to
have originated with the truly good ele
ments of the community, who have suc
ceeded in bringing sufficient influence to
bear to accomplish their purpose.
The excursion had been advertised in
local prints, a train chartered and a number
of tickets sold. The action of the company
is very generally condemned as an unwise
and unnecessary concession to the extreme
Sabbatarians. .Many who have heretofore
favored the road in tbe matter of freight
shipments now declare their intention to
withdraw their patronage altogether.

"Woodbeidge, Conn., April 27. Lewis
J. Peck, a young farmer of this village, has
long been courting a pretty Buffalo girl by
mail, and last week the day was set tor the
wedding. They had never met, but they
had exchanged photos. Peck had written
to the young lady, whose name wasEva
Hellenbtck, tovcome to New York, where he
would meet her and escort her to her new
home, where all was ready for their
wedding. He left here one morning on the
errand, and on arriving at the place of
meeting fixed upon he was surprised and
vexed to not find the fair Buflalonian. He
haunted the trains arriving from that city,
but she did not come.
The next day he took the train for Buffalo
to find out why he had been disappointed.
Just after Miss Hellenbeck had written that
she would meet him in New York, her
parents, fearing some evil, determined to
keep her at home until they had received
another letter from Mr. Peck. The next
day they relented, and the same day he

tonishment on reaching Buffalo was great,
but beyond giving his future father-in-law
a piece of his mind, he said but little and
started for home. Arriving there, he met
Miss Hellenbock, and together they made 1
preparations for the wedding.
Mr. Peck went to theEegistrar's office for
a license, and here another hitch occurred.
The young lady must have the consent of
her Darcnts before she could be married, as
she was under age. This was telegraphed

people were married and will be among the

tion received here to-day announces the
death in Mexico of Thomas F. Plunkett,
the defaulting Treasurer of the Union Man

Hartford Silk Company. Plunkett came
to this city several years ago, and
his business qualifications soon
gained for him the confidence of
tbe public. Then came the defalcation
three years ago, in which Georee Bartholo

Life Insurance Company, now defunct, and
at the time of the defalcation a stock broker
in this city was concerned. Bartholomew
is supposed to be in Canada.
Plunkett came from the famous Pitts

several brothers living. The manner of his
death is not definitely known, bnt it is be
lieved that he was murdered. He was
about 45 years of age. His father at one

COPTBlanT, 1839, BY 3JEW TOBX ASSOC1ATXD
Beelin, April 27. The members of the
commission to consider the questions con
cerning Samoa have seen Prince Bismarck
and Count Herbert Bismarck. The former
briefly expressed his confidence that the
conference would be harmonious. The
American delegates to the conference are
delighted with the reception accorded them
by Prince Bismarck.
The Chancellor was especially cordial to
Mr. Bates, wio explained that his article
on Samoa in the Century magazine was
written long before he was nominated a del
egate to the1 conference, and that after his
nomination he tried to withdraw the article,
but in vain, as thousands of copies had been
Prince Bismarck showed perfect famil
iarity with the Samoan question. He ex
pressed the hope that the conference would
be brief. He frequently referred to the dip
lomatic and parliamentary experience of
Messrs. Kasson and Phelps.
THE CONFEBEtfCE OPENED.
The first sitting was held at 2:30 P. H. to
day at the Foreign Office. The Foreign
Office appears to be assured of an early ter
mination of the negotiations. The commis
sion, however, expects that the sittings will
be protracted for several months, especially
if the charges against Klein, involving
claims against the "Washington Government
are brought up.
Prince Bismarck certainly intends to
place the evidence of Herren, Brandeis and
Knappe and others before the conference,
but he has abandoned the claims for in
demnity arising from Klein's action. This
course ought to shorten negotiations. The
claim against the Samoans for plundering
German traders and planters will be main
tained. There is reason to believe that England
supports the principle of the German de
mands, and it is trusted that the American
delegates are empowered to admit it. The
amonnt of the indemnity is not likely to
give rise to any disagreement, being merely,
af question as to the accuracy of the claims
GEEMANT TVANTS LAND.
From the nature of the communications
between Count Herbert Bismarck and Ham

The official papers rather affect indiffer
ence toward the conference. The Cologne
Gazette briefly concludes that a favorable
result is already assured. A strongly
phrased article in the Magdenburg Gazette,
a national Liberal paper, is in marked con
trast with the reserved tone of the general
Eress. This paper declares that German
onor requires the punishment of the assail
ants of December 18, and it demands pro
tection for the planters by a permanent set
tlement of the whole Samoan group in the
lines followed by England in Egypt.
A FAVOBABLE IMPBESSION.
In its expansiveChauvinism the article
misrepresents both the official and public
feeling. Count Herbert, after an informal
greeting to the American delegates, held an
official reception to all the commissioners.
A programme has been arranged for the
opening of the conference on Monday.
Messrs. Kassou and Phelps have already
made a favorable impression on the Ger
man and English officials. The idea pre
vails in the foreign office that Mr. Phelps
will become chief of the American Lega
tion. The family of Mr. Murat Halstead
have been here during the winter. Prince
Bismarck wil remain in Berlin until the
conference decisions assume definite form.
He will meetSignor Crispi, the Italian Pre
mier, during the visit oi'King Humbert"
The Emperor will remove the Imperial
headquarters to Potsdam on "Wednesday.
The Emperor's reception at "Weimar yes
terday brought out a host of visitors. A
number of triumphal arches were erected
and there was ringing of bells, booming of
cannon, etc., in honor of the occasion.
THE EMPEEOE'S SPEECH.
v Beplying to an address from the Burgo
mater, the Emperor said that he had long
cherished a desire to see the town noted as
the cradle of the greatest national poets,
and eminent as the source of art and science
in Germany, and dear to him also as the
home of his grandmother, Augusta. It was
a graceful response,and showed his advance
in the art of speaking.
The Emperor then visited the Goethe Mu
seum, after which he banqueted at the
Schloss and then went to Wartburg. He
will return here and open the exhibition of
inventions to secure workmen against acci
dents. The exhibits will comprise models
of the appliances to guard against injuries
in factories,at fires,in railroad accidents,etc.
The Emperor gave fresh heart to Dr.
Stoecker before his temporary withdrawal
from public life by the presence of himself
and the Empress at Dr. Stoecker's Easter
sermon. Dr. Stoecker will shortly speak to
the electors of Siegen and Bielfeldt under a
permit from the Emperor.
MISFOBTUNES IN AFBICA.
Chronic misfortune attends German en
terprise in East Africa. The "Wissman ex
pedition has effected nothing as yet The
whole credit voted by the "Reichstag has
been swallowed up by the expense for the
transportation of freights and the hire of

The excess in expenditure will necessi
tate an immediate appeal to the Beichstag
for a further credit, thus confirming the
Progressist predictions that the Government
calculations of tbe cost of the colonizing
operations would, prove recklessly false.

New Yobk, April27. Michael Duffy, a
nursery man living at 320 Cross street,
Kearney, N..T., was arrested this afternoon,
accused of trying io poison his wife and sev
eral other women with strychnine. Hypur
chased the strychnine on Friday of a drug
gist in Harrison, saying he wanted to kill a
dog. Later in the day be went to Baker's
saloon, near his home, and asked for-a quart
of beer. Baker, as he was about to draw
the beer into the tin pail, saw the poison in
the bottom ot it, and at the same time ob
served the red-labeled package. He refused
to sell Duffy any beer. Duffy went to Len
nox's saloon and got some beer, which he
Baker sent word to Mrs. Duffy that her
husband had put poison in the beer, and
Mrs. Duffy raised an outcry. Duffy seized
the pail and threw the contents out of the
door. A Mrs. Thompson had drunk some
of the beer, and an emetic was at once ad
ministered. Her life was saved, owing to
fact that alkaloid strychnine had been
given to Duffy, and it is unsoluble in
water or beer. Duffy was arrested. Het
said he bought the poison to give to a dog,
and that it fell out of his pocket into the
beer when he was pulling out a dollar note.
He was sent to the Hudison County Jail

Secretary Tracy Compliments Kimberly
and His Subordinates at Samoa.
"Washington, April 27. Secretary
Tracy to-day addressed a letter to Bear Ad
miral Kimberly, commanding United States
naval force on the Pacific station at Apia,
Samoa. He expressed his profound regret
because of the late disaster, and the loss of
life and property, and complimented the
officers highly for their behavior nnder the
trving circumstances. He continued:
In reply to your request for a court of In
quiry, tbe department has to say that it deems
such a court unnecessary. It is satisfied that
the officers in command of the ships at Apia
did their duty with courage, fidelity and sound
judgment and tbal they are zealously second
ed by their subordinates: that the hurricane
which caused the destruction of tbe vessels
and the loss of so many lives, was one of those
visitations of Providence, in the presence of
which human efforts are of little avail: that
the measures actually taken by yourself and
the1 officers under ou were all that wisdom
and prudence could dictate, and that it was
due to these measures that so large a propor
tion of the crews were saved.

A Largo Const Defense Tesael to be Com

"Washington, April 27. Secretary
Tracy has decided that he has authority
under the law to proceed with the construc
tion of the great coast defense vessel. There
will be no re-advertisement, and the only
question to be decided is which of the bids
shall be accepted.
Cramp's bid was the lowest, but the
Union Iron "Works, of California, whose
bid was but $14,000 above him, hope to
secure the work, in consideration of the
fact that they absolutely guarantee the suc
cess of the ship for the amount of their bid,
which was $1,628,000. This decision of the
Secretary will involve the abandonment of
the idea of building a submarine torpedo

THE OLD MAN FRAMED.
That's tbe Way Some of the Men at the
Plttabnrg- Bridge "Works Spoke of a
Chair Presentation to Their Splendid
There is at least one establishment in this
city where proprietorship and trades union
ism do not clash, and that is at the works
of the . Pittsburg Bridge Company, foot
of Thirty-sixth street Something was In
the wind there last night, and that some
thing proved to be tbe presentation of
an elegant reclining chair to tbe Presi
dent of the company, J. A. Nichols, by
the employes of theVorks. The sinews of
war were first collected, and then Messrs.
John Kelly, Henry Sharrar, "Win. Johnston,
"Wm. Hoffman and Martin Spielman were
instructed to find the best chair that money
conld-buy for the President. They did so;
and when through, found that like the
United States they had a surplus. As there
was no sinking fund provided by instruct
ions of their constituents into which
an unexpended balance might be
dumped, and as there were
neither pensioners, their wives, sisters,
cousins, aunts nor other relatives to come
in as beneficiaries, the committee decided
that it should be expended on internal im
provements and cigars, and the recommen
dations of the committee passed both houses
without dissent and were promptly indorsed
by the president.
A. A. Anderson broke the ice by rapping
for order and detailing the history of the
Pittsburg Bridge "Works, which he stated
had been fonnded in a hole in the ground
11 years ago, and, under Mr. Nichols'
management, had prospered ro that the
companv now ranked as one of the import
ant institutions of the United States. In
conclusion Mr. Anderson called on Mr.
John Kelly to present the chair, framed in
appropriate verbal phrase.
Mr. Kelly's address was humorous but
feeling, and he stated that all their " 'arts"
were true to the President, from riveting
boys up to the Assistant Superintendent
"Warming up, Mr. Kelly said he would pro
ceed to frame the old man by seating him
in the chair, which performance was cele
brated by the giving of three cheers and
three more for the Assistant Superintend
ent A. T. Nichols.
President Nichols responded appropri
ately and gave his own expenence to show
the advantage of hard study and the differ
ence between $1 25 and 810 a day, which
was generally brought about by hard study.
After the speech making had been con
cluded, the Twelfth ward drum corps filled

AN AMENDMENT MEETING.
A Colored Orator From Texas Delivers an
About 300 people attended the Prohibi
tion amendment meeting in Salisbury Hall
last night Bev. L. G. Jordan, a colored
orator from Texas, was present, and made
an address. Mr. Jordan said that the Penn
sylvania Legislature had done what a num
ber of other States had refused to do give
the people a chance to vote on the ques
tion. He asserted that if the people did not
adopt the measure and would ask for a sub
mission of the matter to the people in the
future, they would be refused.
The American people, he said, are a
power. If they fail to exercise their power,
they fall short of their duty. It was when
the American people said, ""We will not
have slavery," that 4,000,000 men were set
free. If the American people will say, ""We
will not have the liquor traffic," the coun
try will become purified. Mr. Jordon ob
jected to high license, for the reason that in
supporting high license the people aid in
the adulteration of whisky. Mrs. L. E.

Washhtotoit, April 27. Just at thi
time there is considerable interest felt in,
the personal appearance of the Father of
His Country. Dr. J. M. Toner, the editor
of "Washington's diaries, has a large collec
tion' of prints and engraved portraits ot
"Washington, and a careful examination,
and comparison of them would lead to that,
conclusion that Americans of this day do?
not know what "Washington looked like.
Portraits from life were made of "Wash
ington by upwards of 40 artists, and no twd
of the faces are alike. Among some of thesa
alleged likenesses there is no resemblance '
at .all. Elizabeth Bryant Johnston, wha
spent much time in searching out the orig
inal portraits of "Washington, concludes' .
that no artist succeeded in producing an en
tirely satisfactory portrait The only way
to settle the matter, perhaps, is tohava.
a composite photograph made of the
whole series. The result would probably (
be something like the real "Washington,

In looking over old records relating toj ...
"Washington, it is curious to note that tha
first public celebration of his birthday was.
held at the court house of Talbot county,
Virginia, in 1783. The day celebrated was.
the 11th of February, as that was the day
he was born according to the old style of
reckoning which had not then gone out of
vogue. The 22d was first substituted and
first publicly celebrated in Philadelphia id

ington, and spent much of his time when not
lighting in masung portraits ot nis distinf
gnished leader. He may also have mader ;
the set ot false teeth that disfigured Wasb-7
ington's countenance in the latter
years of his life. He painted
the picture of "Washington at Princeton
College. A ball from one of "Washington's
cannons entered the college building at the? '
battle of Princeton, but did no damage "
further than the destruction of a portrait of .
George the Second. "Washington; gave HO .
fuineas from his own pocket to pay for ths '
amage. The trustees of the college devoted '
this sum to securing a portrait of Washing-"
ton to renlace the picture destroved.
The old city of Alexandria, opposite) .'
"Washington, teems with memories of "Wash- ,.
ington. Its streets, now grass-grown, and
its wharves and warehouses, now fallen j
into decay, were in "Washington's times "f. "
bristling with a trade that promised a great
future to the city. ,. '
"Washington was one of the first vestrymen
chosen when the parish of Fairfax was cre
ated in 1765, and the pew he occupied in old -.
Christ Church is still shown to visitors.
Some of the old records of the parish are in- ;
teresting. In 1766, for instance, the sexton
received an a'nnual salary of COO pounds of
tobacco. "When it was desired to build a. '
new church tbe vestry ordered a levy upon
the people of the parish of 31,185 pounds of
tobacco for the purpose. TJpon he comple.
tion of the new church in February, 1773,.
Colonel George "Washington purchased pew
No. 5 for tbe sum of 36 10s., the highest '
price paid in those colonial days.
In consequence of tbe relation then ex-
isting between church and State, the func
tion of the vestry extending to a variety of
matters. The church wardens bound ap-4
prentices to their masters, and the record -
snows nnes paio. io mem lor aeer Killing out
of season, for gaming and for hunt

women came to the front, for in 1778
the sexton was a woman named Susannah.
Edwards, who ushered the members .
of the congregation up the tile paved aisles
to the seats alloted to each "in according to
dignity." In 1810 the name of Mrs. Cook
appears as sexton. She filled the office until
1821, when she was retired on an annuity
It is related that she used to lock the par
ishioners into their pews and patrol tbe aisls '
with a militaryair.alert to detect and prompt ,
to suppress any violation ot order. Near
George Washington's pew the visitor is -shown
