HAKEISBUEG, May 4. Mr. TJpperman,
of Allegheny, is one of the qnietest mem
bers of the Senate, but it is not because he
cannot talk right out from the shoulder, as
he demonstrated to the satisfaction of every
body in the Senate this forenoon. The sub
ject of his talk was largely Senator DeU
mater, and that gentleman adopted a dis
creetly conciliatory course and thereby
brought the discussion to a close. After
ward, however, in conversation, Senator
TJpperman talked just as plainly as he did
when the stenographer of the legislative
record was taking it ail down.
The trouble grew out of the bill to abolish
the office of ganger of liquid merchandise in
Allegheny county. The merits or demerits
of the bill were not tinder discussion at any
time during the interchange of Senatorial
courtesies, but the measure is one which
some people say is simply designed to rob a
Magee man of a fat office, while others say
it is in the interest ot the Standard Oil Com
pany. OBJECT OF THE SILL.
The fact is that the bill was introduced
by Representative Eobison, of Allegheny,
who was re-quested o do so by Joseph Craig,
the Pittsburg refiner, who is a partner ot
"William Elkms and P. A. B. Widener in
opposition to the Standard Oil Company,
and whose refinery is one of the largest in
dependent institutions in the country.
They do business in Allegheny. Butler and
Washington counties, and willsoon have a
Tery large refinery in operation in Phila
delphia. The fact that they do business in
Washington county is an explanation of the
aid given it by Captain Billingsley on third
reading in the House, when he had it
quietly passed and messaged to the Senate
one evening before the Pittsburg delegation
knew what was being voted on.
Last evening the Senate Committee on
Municipal Affairs agreed to make a favor-
ablereporton tbe bill and gave it to Senator
f Tjppenuan to present to the Senate. Of
course the information as to who had the
bill was not public property, and when
Senator Dachrodt, of Northampton, late in
the session reported it to the Senate no one
particularly noted the fact. Soon after
Senator TJpperman entered the chamber and
took Ms seat
"I thought you had that ganger bill to
report," said Senator Newmyer.
"So I have," replied Senator TJpperman.
THE TEOUBLE COMMENCES.
Senator Kewmyer explained to him what
bad occurred, and Senator TJpperman was
on his feet in an instant, with flame in his
cheek and fire flashing from his eyes. He
asked Senator Thompson, who was in the
chair, it the bill had been reported, and
Senator Thompson, after consulting the
clerks, said it had been.
Senator Delamater then arose to say he
could possibly explain, but Senator Upper
man quickly interrupted him and said, with
a great deal of emphasis: "I think this is
one of those things that cannot be ex
plained. This bill was given to me to re
port, and I cannot understand how it could
have been placed in the hands of another.
Ton attack the rights of a Senator from Al
legheny. It appears to me that Allegheny
Senators here have no rights. They are not
recognized even in the reporting of a bill.
This bill was handed to me by the Chair
man ot the committee, and the genu man
who reported it never asked for it, and 1
cannot understand how he conld report it
when the bill was in mv possession."
Mr. Delamater at this point got the atten
tion of the chair and said: "Mr. President,
knowing this morning that the bill had
been considered, I went from one member to
another of the committee of those who were
in the Senate, inquiring who had the bill.
None of them knew. The chairman, Mr.
Mylin, was at sent, and I sent messengers
everywhere to find bim, only to learn that
be had gone home. So had the secretary of
the committee, Mr. Cooper. I coulj not find
Senator TJpperman cither. I thought per
baps the Senator who had the bill had Jeft
town and taken it with him by an oversight
I will not say that I thought the Senator had
taken away the bill by design, nor that any
Senator proposed to smother the bill, though
the committee had ordered an affirmative re
port I asked the Clerk of the Senate xihat
course to pursue. I did not intend that a
bill passed by the House shonld be lost bv a
trick or a mistake. The clerk advised that
a duplicate bill be made out and reported.
The Senator who had the original bill could
then have it substituted for the duplicate on
bis return. Several members of the commit
tee offered to report it if a copy was made or
tne oui lonna. i did not tben snow sena
tor TJpperman had the bill. I supposed it
was in the hands of Senator Mylin. Assis
tant Librarian Miller will bear me out that
I tried to find him."
"My position is just this: The House duly
passed a bill and caused it to be sent to this
body in proper form. It had then been
acted ou'by one of our committee, and I did
not propose to sit idly by and permit it to
be lost by mistake. Therefore, this bill, or
a duplicate of it, has now been reported by
the gentleman from Northumberland, a
member of the committee, and I believe is
properly before this body. If not, let the
gentleman from Allegheny report his bill,
as he acknowledges the committee ordered
him to do.. If he does this no one will press
the other one."
"Mr. President," responded Senator TJp
perman, "the gentleman from Crawford is a
little too suspicious as to tricks. I have
been here since 1881, and this is the first
time I have been charged with trying to de
feat a bill by a trict. I have been honest
in all my actions here, and my word has
always been as good as my bond. I have
cast mv vote to please myself and nobody
else, and I have never been tricky. I
never had a report ot a comerence commit
tee printed and placed on tbe desk of the
members before the committee had been ap-
pointed. I now raise the point of order that :

Senator Delamater moved the recommittal
of the bill, -and as soon as the motion had
been carried Senator TJpperman made a
formal report of the measure to the Senate.
Senator Newmyer, who had been an in
terested spectator up to this time, here
broke in: "X enter my protest against this
kind of legislative practice. If such things
as this can be done there is no telling what
cannot be done."
The Chair declared Senator Newmyer
not in order when he had gone this lar.
Senators TJpperman and Boss moved that he
be given permission to speak, but Mr. New
myer said he had nothing further to say.
The bill was then read for the first time and
Those who beard what passed between the
Senators TJpperman and Delamater after
adjournment, say the conversation was not
in accordance with anv rules laid down in
any book of etiquette. 'A little later. Sena
tor Newmyer was writing at his desk, and
Chairman Andrews approached.
"Mr. Newmyer." he said. "I would like
to speak to you a few moments."
"I am too busy," was Senator Newmyer's
Chairman Andrews walked away with
out saying anything. Friends of Sen
ator Delamater treelyassert that it was Sen
tor TJpperman's intention to suppress the
bill, and that he would not have appeared
in the Senate this morning had not Senator
Dachrodt reported it
''At least," said one gentleman, "that is
just the way I would have acted if I had
been trying to suppress a bill." These re

Governor Beaver Slcns the Municipal Lien
Bill Will It Affect tbe PennAvenno
Liens The Street Bill Hang
ing; In tbe Balance.
TROM X STAFF COBBXSFOXDXXT.I
Haeeisbuuo, May 4. This afternoon
when Controller Morrow came out of Gov
ernor Beaver's private office, he feelingly
remarked: "I'm afraid we are in the soup."
It was true. To-night Governor Beaver
anounced that he had affixed his signature
to Senator Newmyer's municipal lien bill.
The Governor said be made it a general
rule to sign bills passed by the Legislature
unless they were unconstitutional. This
rule, however, does not apply to appropria
tion bills. The condition of the revenues,
as well as other things besides tbe Constitu
tion, come into play on these.
The committee that came from Pittsburg
to induce the Governor to abstain from
signing the bill were Mayor McCallin, City
Attornev Moreland, City Controller Mor
row, H."P. Ford, President o the Select
Council; W. B, Ford, Collector of Delin
quent Taxes, and O. K. Gardner and H. K.
Bigham, members of Councils. The argu
ments they presented are familiar to Pitts
burgers, a'nd are to the effect that the bill
will apply to the Penn avenue liens. The
Governor and Senator Newmyer, did not
agree with this. They said it would only
apply to future liens. City Controller Mor
row said afteiward to The Dispatch cor
respondent that, while theydid not agree in
this opinion, he desired it known he at
tributed no wrong motives to Senator New
myer. The other gentlemen concurred in
The Pittsbnrgers had been informed that
they would be notified as soon as tbe bill
reached the Governor. Through some mis
take they were not notified until yesterday,
and this was the last day on which the
Governqr could take action. He had al
ready made up nis mind, and tne bearing
given the Pittsburgets was merely a belated
act of courtesy.
Controller Morrow is much exercised con
cerning the fate of the Pittsburg street bill.
It was read the first time to-day. On Mon
day it will be read a second time and on
Tuesday a third time. As it was amended
somewhat in the Senate Committee it will
have only Wednesday in which to pass the
Conference Committee and reach the Gover
nor. It will require hard work on the part
of the Allegheny Senators to put it through.

Habrisburg, May 4. Some of the
members are beginning to talk about and
figure up on the cost of the special election
on the 18th of June. With the exception
of the tickets, which are supplied at the
State's expense by the State printer, the
counties will be compelled to pay the score.
The election will cost the city of Philadel
phia over $40,000, and Pittsburg nearly half
It is held by many of the menfbers that
the coming election is purely a State affair
and that the State ought to pay the ex
penses. If the session was not closing at
this time, a bill would be promptly intro
duced making an appropriation for tbe pay
ment of the cost It is too late now, but it
is extremely probable that a bill will be
pushed in the next Legislature to reimburse
the several counties for the outlay. This
will probably be the best under the circum
stances, since bv that time the exact cost
will have been ascertained to a dollar. It
is doubtful, though, whether such a bill
would not have failed this session. The

In the Senate It is different, but the
speeches there, in the main, have the virtue
of brevity. A great deal of committee work,
and particularly conference committee
work, is being done. This, takes the mem
bers from their seats and sometimes causes
a bill to be defeated for lack of a vote or
two. The disaster) the pool bill yesterday
can be traced to this cause, a number of its
friends being out or the hall of the House

Berlin, May 4. A committee of the
Samoan conference has prepared the draft
of a proposal to constitute a court to decide
questions of land tennre in Samoa. The
court is to consist of one representative of
each of the interested powers and two Sa
moese. Complications connected with existing
tenures threaten to impede progress until
the committee relegates the settlement of
the question to the proposed court Messrs.
Sewall and Brandeis have been present
daily at the sittings. Mr. Sewall proved
the untenable character of a number of
German land claims, and further showed
that the extent of land claimed by foreign
ers as bought or ceded was in excess of the
area of the island.
Mr. Brandeis gave evidence on the valid
ity of German land titles, and said he de
Bired to be heard on the losses of German
planters. The committee declined to con
sider such losses as involving a question of
The English and American delegates ex
press satisfaction at tbe progress so far
made, and all sides are hopeful that the
convention will be concluded early in June.
The attitude of the English delegates will
assist in the solution of the question.
Before the conference it was suspected
that the entente between Berlin and Lon
don would tend to throw the balance against
the American policy, but developments
since the opening of the conference warrant
the belief that the English delegates have
been instructed to join with the American
representatives in opposing German preten
sions to special rights. The report that
Messrs. Sewall, Parker and Buckingham
are not recognized officially and are socially
Ignored is untrue. On the contrary, they
are well received everywhere.
The banquet to be given by the American
Commissioners at the Kaiserhof Hotel on
Wednesday will be a brilliant affair. There
will be present, beside all the members of
the conference, the full diplomatic corps of
all countries having representatives at Ber
lin. Mr. Pendleton, the retiring American
Minister, and his daughters, will leave
Berlin on Monday.
CONSUL KUAPFE'S DEFENSE.
The report of Dr. Knappe, ex-German
Consul at Apia, was issued to-dav. It is a
lame defense of his own conduct In it Dr.
Knappe charges the adherents of Mataafa
with raiding the German planters, and de
scribes his efforts to induce the insurgents
to abandon their positions which encroached
upon the plantations.
He says that the disorders in Samoa were
partly due to American incitement The
general tenor of the report and its publica
tion at the present juncturesuggest a latent
intention on the part of Bismarck to persist
in his indemnity demands. An appendix
to the report gives the American consul's
edict prohibiting the supplying of spirits to
Dr. Knappe complains that toy flags and
handkerchiefs, on which are imprinted the
American colors and the portrait of

States, have been hoisted promiscu

that American and British flags we're

arms and ammunition. Tbe commander of

The ferment of discontent among the Gov
ernment groups has increased since the
peremptory closure of the Landtag. The re
opening of the Beichstag will be signalized
by attacks on the Government, in which a
number of National Liberals will join with
the Progressists and Centerists. The mem
bers ot the Landtag expected that the new
income tax bill promised in the speech from
the throne, would be tabled before the ad
journment of the House.
Prince Bismarck preferred to drop the
bill and close the House, being advised
that the long-tried docility of the Govern
ment majority could not be relied upon.
Avoiding simultaneous conflict in the,
Landtag and the Beichstag, theJJhancellor
concentrates his efforts against theUppusi
tion in the Beichstag and is secretly negoti
ating with Dr. Windthorst.

Alleged In Connection With the Settlement
of Oklahoma A Chlcngonn Tells

Washington, May 4. Mr. George W.
Cole, of Chicago, who was in Oklahoma
when that Territory was thrown open to
settlement, bad a conference with Attorney
General Miller this afternoon in regard to
the conduct of Government officers on that
occasion. According to his state
ment, Marshal Jones, of Kan
sas, and nearly all of his 700
deputies, took illegal advantage of their
official position to get possession of choice
lands. Mr. Cole said he was on the spot,
and was prepared to substantiate his charges
against Marshal Jones and his deputies. He
said further that Marshal Needles and
his deputies, of the Oklahoma dis
trict, were alleged to be equally
culpable in the matter, but as he was not
personally cognizant of the, farts as far as
these officials were concerned, he did not
care to be responsible for the charges
against them. He had seen enough, how
ever, dnring his stay of three days in the
Territory, to convince him that certain per
sons had been given unfair advantages in
securing claims, and he deemed it his duty
to bring the matter to the attention of the

Mrs. Dunn avers that she was married to
him in October, 1883, and charges him
with abandoning her last May. The

She said to The Dispatch reporter to
night that tbe first time she met Jere Dunn
was in Cincinnati, where he was racing his
horses. She was then a young widow. She
came to New York in the spring of 1883,
and again met Mr. Dunn. She said:
He told me that he did not believe in any
thing and bad nn faith in Ood or the church.
He proposed tbat we shonla make a mutual
agreement to live as man and wife. Such an
agreement be said, would be as -binding as a
formal ceremony before a minister. I agreed
to this and we went to the Coleman House to
lire as Mr. and Mrs. Dunn. I was
introduced as his wife everywhere. I

It now appears that the Democrats- wno
were engineering the patriotic job of the Penn
farm purchase were badly left in their calcu
lations. They were led Into camp by Bepubli
can leaders and induced to vote tor a number
of'measnres that required help In return for
the promise tbat the farm scheme wonld be
put through. This promise was not kept.
Whether the leaders deliberately deceived the
Bucks county Democrats or were unable to de
liver tbe vote for the bill is not known, but the
probabilities are the latter is correct, as many
members will not care to identify themselves
with a job of tbat sort. Now that tbe bill is
killed, the inquiry is made, what was the pur
pose of the bill ? Was it intended for tbe State
to go into the farming line, or was a park to be
made of the ground ? These questions are not
answered, but the report is very promptly de
nied that the land, for which 1200 is wan ted from
the State, has been offered in the open market
for S5S per acre since the defeat of the bill.

High soolety at tbe Metropolis has taken
up another fad. The first amateur circus
performance has been given in a very suc
cessful manner. The actors wore even
more dazzling costumes than those ot tbe
regular ring, and the features are said to
have been excellent A special train ot
Pullman cars conveyed a select and bril
liant audience to and from the scene.
New- Yobk, May 4. The amateur circus
atPleasaunce, the charming country place of
Mr. James M. Waterbury at Baychester, on
Xong Island Sound, last night, was success
ful even beyond his fondest anticipations,
and the outcome more than repaid him for
the thousands of dollar he had spent and
the time and labor the project involved.
The idea of an amateur circus, in which
society people should take the part ot the
performers is not original with Mr. Water
bury, the Duo de Moray having astonished
Paris with one two years ago, but Mr.
Waterbury's friends are willing to give
bim credit for introducing this latest and
most startling phase of social gayety on this
continent For months he has been arrang
ing details, and last night's performance
was the culmination of a vast amount of
study and research. When he unfolded his
project to his friends they enthusiastically
volunteered their services.
SCENE OF THE OIECUS.
The circus was held in Mr. Waterbury's
huge covered tennis court, which is a large
building, handsomely finished in oak. In
the center of the building aregnlation forty
foot ring was Jaid out by Jack Carroll, who
was in bis day one -of the most intrepid
bare-back riders in the country, some
months ago, and regularly twice a week
since then the gentlemen who were willing
to risk their limbs and necks in order to
win' the smiles of their ladies fair, have

Mr. E. Boosevelt was the most unfortun-'
ate of the lot, for while some tumbled in
gloriously in the sawdust, tbat young gen
tleman received injuries which prevented
his taking part in last night's performance.
The rail enclosing the ring, instead of being
padded with canvas, as is customary, was
luxuriously cushioned in tbe richest crim
son plush, and from the roof hung festoons
of the gayest bunting, which crossed and
recrossed the room in a maze of red, white,
orange, old gold, crimson, green, heliotrope
and almost every conceivable color known,
throueh which shone calcium lights of dif
ferent tints. ,
MONET WAS NOT SPARED.
There never was anything in society or
out of Bociety that could compare with this
latest whim. Everything had been done
with a lavish hand. The costumes were

clusters of precious stones twinkled in the

At 9.30 o'clock, amid a blaze of trumpets,
eight spirited polo ponies bounded into the
ring, bearing npon their backs Miss Daisy
Hearst, Miss Cary, Miss Adolph Laden
burg, Miss Sallie HargourJTredenck Beach,
&- C. Potter. Con net and Woodbury Kane,
and the circus began. The ladies wore red
tight-fitting jackets, white skirts of regular
riding length and black riding hats. The
men wore tbe stereotyped hunting costume.
THE OPENING PEATTTBE.
They made the ponies dance a quadrille
to an inspiriting air with a dash and finish
that would charm any connoisseur of good
ring riding. They had hardly disappeared
when William Binninger appeared with his
trick baby elephant, very ably personated
by two young men. They did the old
Evangeline act; and received a liberal
amount of applause.
Then Messrs. Lesher, Landon, Taylor and
Molyneux, clad in silken tights of dazzling
hues, gave an exhibition of high and lofty
tumbling that caught everybody. The les
echelles, a very intricate performance on a
three runged ladder suspended from the
ceiling was oleverly done by Messrs. Lesher,
Landon and Prof. Goldie. They did very
startling feats. A huge net was stretched
beneath them to save broken bones.
The applause which greeted this perform
ance and the funny antics of Messrs. Haver
meyer and Appleton, the olowns, had hardly
ended before Edward C. Potter darted into
the ring to do bis "daring act on horse
back." A SAPE STEED.
The horse used was a demure white geld
ing named Johnny, which cantered so
smoothly that a glass of water placed on his
broad back would hardly have lost a drop,
but Mr. Potter, who wore rose-colored tights
of the finest silk, rode most creditably, nev
ertheless. He jumped the banners grace
fully and went through one of .the paper
hoops, but came to grief in attempting the

Bingmaster Howard N. Potter snapped his
long whip furiously and Johnny cavorted
around the ring at a lively gait, Mr. Potter

without as much as a checkrein to sustain
bis equilibrium. He was applauded, and
he received his reward, a huge bnnch of
Messrs. Lesher and .Molyneux followed
with a beautiful exhibition of horizontal
bar work. Molyneux is an amateur cham
pion at this sport, and his work last night
surpassed that of two-thirds of the proles

pleton introduced his troop of trained dogs.
They did their tricks very creditably.
THE STAB LADY EIDEB.
A roar oi laughter, followed by a burst of
applause, greeted the appearance of Mr.
Frederick Beach dressed as a female eques
trian. He wore a black lace dress, with,
gold spangles, of the shortest kind. His
n. astache had been sacrificed to the needsof
the occasion and a blonde wig of the gid
diest kind covered his head. Mr. Beach can
ride with the best of them, and his exhibi
tion was one of the features of the evening.
He was ably assisted by the Johnny afore
said. Messrs. Landon and Lesher gave a
thrilling act on the double trapeze, and
then came Victor Sorchon, who electrified
everybody by riding three barebacked
There were two or three other acts in the
programme, and it was nearly midnight
when the party made its way to the country
house, a lew "hundred yards away, where
supper was served. Dancing followed, and
at 2:30 o'clock the special train of seven
Pullman -cars which brought them io tbe

Other Islands la the Pacific Were Struck by
the Terrific Hnrricnne Great Dam

on Sea and Shore.
San Fbancisco, May 4. The American
bark City of Papeete, which atarived to-day,
brought the first news of the hurricane
which swept the Society Islands contem
poraneous with the great storm at Samoa.
Captain Bernd stated that the -worst storm
experienced at Papeete for the past 29 years
occurred during the early part of March.
His vessel arrived off the harbor of .Papeete
on March 6, but was compelled to lay off
the harbor for six days, owing to the terri
ble rain storm which was prevailing. The
winds were from north-northwest, and came
direct from the land.
On March 12 the Papeete reached the har
bor and anchored safely alongside the break
water. On the same date a terrible gale was
blowing, and within 24 honrs following trees
were uprooted, fences blown down, and tbe
streets blockaded with debris. The wind
did great damage to shipping, the vessels
being compelled to seek satety in the open
sea. Two French Government boats, the
transport Laviere and the cruiser Le Volta,
which were anchored in the bay, dragged
their anchors and were compelled to go to
sea to keep trom going ashore. The City of
Papeete left Tahiti March 20. During the
entire trip up, light winds and calms were
experienced. "I never saw such a state of
afiairs before at Tahiti," said Captain Bernd.
"There was not a tree on the island that was
not torn bodily from the earth, the streets
are all impassable in the city of Papeete,and
a general cessation of business has been ex
perienced. When I entered the harbor I for
tunately got a good anchorage near the
breakwater, and that is all that saved my
There was no tidal wave, but there was a
most severe rain: storm before the wind came
up. Tahiti will be some time getting over
the effects of the hurricane, and business at
present is at a standstill. It is impossible
to go about the streets, they are so littered
with fallen timber. On the island of
Maitei, which lies opposite Papeete, the
the storm was more damaging, as it was
open to the "Toll force of the. wind. Great
injurv was done to the plantations on tbe
islands. Captain Bernd stated there was
no truth in the dispatch from Auckland
several weeks ago, stating that the storm
had been accompanied by great loss of Ijfe.
There may have been some lives lost on the
other islands, bnt as far as could be ascer
tained before leaving Papeete, very few
lives had been lost there.

rSPXCIAI. TZLXOnXK TO THX DISPATCH.!
Washutotok, May 4. In this city the
comments of citizens on the verdict of the
court martial in the case of Major Ly
decker, charged with neglect of duty as
military engineer in charge of tbe construc
tion of the new water works tnnnel, are
something more than severe. They are
The failure of Lydecker to personally go
into the tunnel and inspect the work gave
opportunity for the agents of the contractors
to perpetrate one of the most villainous
swindles, by means of bad Work, ever ac
complished in this country. The work so
far has cost the Government $1,000,000 and
the city of Washington a similar sum, as in
all such public improvement the Govern
ment and the city assume equal shares of
the pecuniary burden. No city in the coun
try is as poorly snpplied with water as
Washington. Long ago the population out
grew the water supply, and the necessity
for an extension was imperative. Major
Lydecker is therefore solely responsible not
only for the useless expenditure of $3,000,
000, bnt for an indefinite delay of the ex
tension of the water facilities.
JLXt INADEQUATE SENTENCE.
The conrt martial fonnd him gnilty of
neglect of dnty, but imposed only tbe ab
surd penalty ot a surrender ot $iuu ot nis
pay each month for nine months, and a
reprimand in orders. The President ap
proved tbe finding of the court, but gave
plain evidence of the contempt he felt for it.
'ine court made tne lollowing explana
tion of the verdict: "The conrt is thus
lenient in view of the evidence before it
that, in spaces so confined as those above
the arch in the tunnel, it was almost impos
sible to secure thoroughly g ood work under
the contract system imposed by law."
Befemng to this, the President said in
his review: "The suggestion that the strict
est and most faithful supervision of the
progress ot snch a work is powerless to de
tect and convict the shams which were
Sracticed by the contractors in this case is a
iscredit to the engineering profession, en
tirely inadmissible. The sentence imposed
by the court seems to have given full effect
to every suggestion that might mitigate tbe
A SHABP CONTRAST.
The whole town was to-day contrasting
this verdict with another just rendered by a
naval oourt martial in the case of Lieuten
ant Commander Book, charged with ab
senting himself from his vessel without
leave. He was in command of the United
States steamship Pinta, anchored in the
harbor of Sitka, Alaska, with ber boilers
rotten an useless. He wrote to the depart
ment repeatedly for leave to have bis boilers
repaired, but could get no response. Be
coming desperate, he left his ship and came
to Washington to endeavor to persuade the
officials here that bis ship was in urgent
need of repairs. He had no orders for so
doing, and was court martiaied. 'The sen
tence of the court, which was approved,
was that he be suspended from rank and
duty, on furlough pay for two years, re
taining his present number in his grade
during that period.
Book is virtually fined at least $3,000 in
money and loses two years out ol his pro
fessional career. Lydecker loses $900 and
no time. It suggested generally that to be
consistent, the verdict ot the court martial
in the Armes case should be dismissal irom
the army in disgrace for riding odt of his
place in the inaugural parade, and not for
attempting to pull Governor Beaver's nose.

Washington, May 4. Mr. William E.
Pratt, proprietor of the Hotel Arno, to-day
purchased from ex-Ministej McLane, late
of Paris, his residence on K street, the
second one' from Sixteenth. The Hotel
Arno fronts Sixteenth. The only property
between his and K is the new old-fashioned
house of Justice Gray, of the Supreme
Court, situated on the corner. About a
year ago Mr. Pratt desired to extend the
hotel, and secured all the property between
bis original structure and the residence of
Justice Gray. He endeavored to purchase
from tne latter a portion ot nis lot, which
was vacant, but the Justice brusquely in
formed him that the hotel already en
croached on his property, shut out light
and air from him, and was otherwise an
noying and injurious.
A deal of sharp talk passed between the
fentlemen, which was concluded by Mr.
'ratt informing the Justice in great heat
that be would build around him so high
that he would shut out all remaining light
and air on the north and west, if not else
where. Last fall he made his words good
as to the north, building close to the line
of the Justice's lot, and his purchase to-day
enables him to run a wing through from
the rear of his present lot to K street, where
he will erect towering flats, which will en

Washington, May 4. General Clark
son was absent from the city to-day, and it
was therefore the best day for Democratic
postmasters on which the sun had shone
since the First Assistant Postmaster Gen

cepted as irrefutable proof that the entire
business of cutting off Democratic beads is
left to Mr. Clarkson, without interference
from Mr. Wanamaker. '
This was the poorest of several weeks in

Only about 700 new ones were made, and
only about 60 of them were for Pennsyl
