tbe curate of the Madeline chureh said
tbe customary prayers, sprinkling the
coffin with holy water. As the bearers
lifted the cofflu to their shoulders, the
trst gun boomed on tbe Esplanade Des
uvalidss, and contiuued at intervals

After tbe short ssrmon. ths arch

gave absolution. Tbe bearers took the
coftiu and bore it down the aisle, the
clergy with lighted tapers in baud ac
companying it to the door. All the bells
in the city were tolling as the proces
sion formed again aud moved on to tho
Piuithon. U. UlinlU'mei-Laconr deliv
ered an oration on btthalf of tbe Senate.
M. Deniahy, first vice president of

coupled with the feeling of intense
indignation which is nuivsrsally felt.
Premier Depuy, on behalf of the
government, spoke with great feeling
and impressivenes.
THE CLOSING SCENES.
The coffin at 7 o'clock was placed
temporarily in tho crypt between the
bodies of Ross-an and Victor Hugo.
The crowds melted away quickly in the
early evening. No niHn buried in Paris

Jhne. Carnot drove alone from the
palace to tbe cathedral of Notre Dtni,

everywhere was that tbe emperor had
done a graceful deed whiou would al

BUSINESS IN CONGRESS.
Forecast of the Proceedings of the
Coming Week Fun Ahead
Over tho Tariff Bill.
Washington, July 1. Unless all the
signs of tbe timts fail, this week will
se the tariff bill out of the senate and
on its way to tbe house, where the
struggle is to be renewed pending the
filial contest iu conference. The fight
is now for hours rather than days. The
Democratic managers are making every
possible effort to' get tbe bill out of tbe
senate bv Tuesday night and failing to
accomplish that end they threaten to
remain in session on the Fourth of
July.
1 here are certain elements thut cause
tbe rusjority some feeling of uneasiness
over the outcome, among them the at
titude of Senator Blancbard, and tbe
assertions repeatedly made during the
past week by the Populists that be
cause or tneir votes neretorore cast
in committee of the whole in favor of
the bill, it must not be assum
ed that they will necessarily vote
for it under all conditions on final pass
age. A detection or one voie wouiu
put the party in charge of the bill in a
predicament that would cause serious
trouble and anything tending to indi
cate weakness iu tho ranks of any of
tho forces pledged to tbe support of
tbe bill at once becomes a very serious
matter.
Appropriation bills will not detain
the senate long after the tariff is out of
the way. Tbe only bill likely to cause
any extended debate is tbe pension bill
which will form tbe ground work for a
number of partisan speeches.
The bouse of representatives will bs
in waiting more or less till the senate
tariff bill is laid before them. Little
interest will attuch to the proceedings
uutil Chairman Wilson and his associ
ates on the ways and means commit
tee are put in possession of their
changeling and sre asked to decide the
question what they are going to do
about it. Then the fun will wax fast
and furious.
One of the measures which may
come up U tue uoop.r Din to lax
gieenbacks. It is under the control of
Mr. Hall, of Missouri. A number of
gsntlemen have signified their dsire to
speak upon the bill aud it will be an
tagonized generally by the K-jpubii-cans.
Another, measure to which the mem
bers attach no little importance and
which may come neiore the house
upon tbe reassembling after the
Fourth, is the joint resolution provid
ing for the eltction of sonators by the
people.

Philadelphia, July 1 Lswis II.
Weiss, aged 2S years, ft negro despT-
ilo, ran amuck today in Oermantown,
suburb of this city, with a
revolver and shot two people and was
imself shot four times by a police
man. welfH necame ongageit in an

to shoot him and when Mrs. Bertha

FULL OF ELECTRICITY,
A Dying FatUnt Bulleved of the Excass
Msy Beoovsr.
HACKETTSTOWN, July 1. A esse
which is -exciting much curiosity in
this place is that of Ernest Ward, who,
uutil recently, had been employed in
the lamp department at Edison's
works at East Newark. While thors
Ward was shocked by electricity. He
was finally stricken down and bad to
be removed from the works in an un
conscious condition tie was dying,
it was supposed, from the effects of
the shock he received.
His aunt, Miss Annie Booely, said
she bsliuved him to bs "full of electric
ity," and cuius so the conclusion that
if Ward's body could be relieved of the
excess be would recover. It was de
cided to attuch a ground wire to por
tions of Ward's body with a view of
entry ing off what electricity was in it
A common insulated wire was made
bare at the end, Uue end was lightly
fastened to a water pipe aud the other
end of the wire was attached to a
spongo whioh was placed in the pa
tients bund. It was noticed that Wurd
felt a little better after the operation
and nppenred to be semi conscious.
The experiment was tried again when
Ward became able to talk and was
able to distinguish objects around him
The physicians now attending tho
man say he has a good chance for re
covery.

to Be Closely Watched by the Mem
bers of the Lexow Committee.

T
HE senate inveatlgatioii of tho
police having tur the time being
adjourned, tho investigation of
the police by itself is announced
becin. Superintendent Byrnes be-
ng in chargo of tiio investigation. It is
seini-nfficiiiily j-iviii out that the sub-
ect will bo takou uu in earnest the
wevk after next and that a groat deal
of tune between tlwn and Sept. 10. the
ate sst for the re-ass,iinblmir ot the
Lexw committee, will be devoted to
the search.
Commissioner Murray objected to the
nqniry on the ground that it would
end to Interfere with the operations of
the senate committee. When he was
overruled he introduced a resolutiou.
which was adopted, calling upon Dis
trict Attorney ro.iows to wxuiimo tho
evidence taken by the committee, and
f bo deems it sufficient unuiust any
meinour or ruumbrs of the police de

HIO TASK AHI5AD.
Tho proposed Investigation will, if
honestly conducted, involve a big task,

in, who was ohurged with corrupt
practices by some of the Tenth ward
madams. The captains whose names
have been mentioned are Strauss, Dev-
ery, Dross, bwvenson, Murphy, Doher-
ty, Suibert, bchmitsberger, Allaire,
Thompson. Reilly, Pnc. Killilea,
Uatighey, Moakim and Berghold. That
is a sufficiently imposing galaxy In It
self, but when to this list is added the
names of a score of ward detectives,
past and present, who have been hauled
over the youla ; of a job lot of aerg-iauts
and fifteen or twenty patrolmen, the
magnitude of tbe task may be appra
eiaitd. Naturally Lawyer Golf and the mem
bers of the committee are displeased
with the action of the police board and
are disposed to doubt its good faith.
Thero is a lear that tho police inquiry
may harass and intimidate wituesses
yet to appear before the senate com
mittee. There is also speculation
whether the real motive of the new in
quiry will be justice or whitewashing.
In case that Chairman Lexow and
Lawyer Goff decide that the police
board is not acting on the level it will
be an easy mattor to ruuouvene the
committee. A quorum can be obtained
inside of ten hours. Chairman Lexow
and Senator Robertson come to New
York every day, Senator Cautor lives
here and Senator Bradley is at the
other end of the big bridge.
Tammany's attitude,
Some curiosity is expressed bs to the
attitude ot Tammany in tho matter.
Conversations with leaders of the or
ganization make clear the fact that
they propose to make a desnorate effort
to dear the organization of part ot ths
odium that , has been attueued to It,
They will sosk to show that the system
of blackmail und extortion 1b a lstracv
from previous Republican aud nuti
Tuimuauy combinations aud that the
polico during the past two years, when
Tammany bus been in practical con
trol of the department, bays simply
pursued ioriuer practices.
As for the criticism that knowing
tnese neiarious methods to prevail tue
police board bus not made an effort to
stamp them out, it is urgod ns a de
fense that neVer before hus immunity
been offered to witnesses. Iu previous
trials, cases nguiust accused officers
have fallen to the ground owing to the
inability to induce witnesses to testify
to susprcted rncts. Besides the com
uiiisiouvrs' findings are subject to scru
tiny by tho courts, and they have to
be extremely careful in dismissing of
ficers, us there have been a number ot
oases where officers Lave gone to the
courts and been reinstated aud r-
vJiVdd back salaries.
HEAPS WILL BE LOPPED OFF.
It is the present intention to show no
mercy to imy man against whom
case can be made. The exigency is of
snob importauco to Tammany that the
question of saviug iudivid uals sinks to
uotbiDg in face of the paramount in
terests of tbe organization. If this is
the stand tbe commissioners propose to
lane, ana it seems to be the one now
absolutely decided upon, mora than
one enptaiu and warumau will doff
their uniforms for good before the
Lexow committee meets in September
