Washington. July 24
THE most entertaining ami remark
able nature in thesr'at national
performance on the flior of th
senate whs the part pluyed in it
today by Senator Hill as the defender
Df President Cleveland urfainst the us
Biiult of Democratic senators in connec
tion with the president's now famous
letter to Mr. WilBon, the ehairmau 01
the lions conferrals on the taritl bill.
Mr. Hill took the around that the lot
ter being oik lHeiul wus no violation of
the constitution, thut it wan no attuck
npou the senate, or upon any senator,
but that it was isn honest effort to carry
out the policy and theories of the
Democratic party, and to ndvanco tho
lutei-asts of the people. As to its Mnir
an unwarranted uttempt to interti.ro
with pending legislation, Mr, Hill us
K rted that the blame lay with thoss
senators who, instead of acting on their
owu judgment and responsibility,
"badgered" the president to give them
his views upon tiie compromise biil
which they had prepared. "Do as I
do,' lie fail to '.hem, "keep away from
the white house."
HILL'S SCATMSf SIMILE.
lie wouurt up a two hours' speech
(bristling all over with tho spikes and
spears of his wit and sarcasm) by com
I arinu the senatorial conspiracy against
President Cleveland to that which
compassed the Hssassinati'.n of Julius
Caesar. Iu this historical parallel,
Senator Gorman, of Maryland, stood
for the "lcau and hungry Cassias,"
of whom Caesar said: "He ttiiuks
too much. Such men art) dun
Herons." Senator Jons, of Arkansas,
for "honest Brutus;" Senator Vest, of
Missouri, lor the 'envious Case;"
Senator Voorhees, of Indiana, for Tre
bonius, and "tha ditii)guihed senator
from Tennessee. Mr. Harris, for
Cinna." He c.irris 1 out the parallel
by declaring that these senators made
tho same ple which the conspirators
of old made, "not that tiny loved
CaPBar less, hut that they loved Home
more;" not that they loved Cleveland
less, but that they loved their party
and the country iu.ir&
Mr. Hill was followed by S.nator
Cattery, of Louisiana, who submitto 1 a
motion looking to the restoration in
the FUirar schedule of a bounty for 1S91
Li a short specu (which was, however,
not concluded) he accused tue Demo
cratic managers of had faith in strik
ing out the sugar bounty and declared
explicitly lor hims If and his colleague
(Mr. Blanciiard) that they would vote
for the tar i tT tali if it put sugar on the
fren list. Without any action, and in
order to have time for n Democratic
caucus, the s-uate at 3 05 p. ui. ad

The Thrilling Adventure of a Mifflin County
Farmer Boy.
ROLLED D9WN A EMYTAIN SIDE
Had Been Out Hunting Rabbits, When
His Fool Tripped and Ho Was Pre
cipitated Down a Ravine Just in
Time to Avoid by a Foot tho Whiz
zing Fast Express on the Pennsyl
vania Railroad.
Li'WM'own. Pa., July 21
LEROY WILLIAMSON, the 10
yoar old eon of a farnur liviug
some few miles from town, had a
startling adventuri yesterday
morning, from the effects of which he
is mill confi.ied to bis bed, and which
lias actually turned the hoy's hair gray
in plac-v. Young Williamson had
taken his gun to do u little shooting on
ihe mountain just back of his father's
farm and finally got u shot at a rabbit,
which rau down the incline, which is
unusually steep just at that spot.
Tho boy staried iu piiNiiii, running
as fast as ho could. But just ut the
steepest side of the mountain aud
Where the thin soil had for the most
lart been wnhed nway, exposing the
smooth rock, his foot caught in some
Irailing vino tind he fell, beginning to
roil toward the bottom or tho ravine
where ran the track of the Peuusvl-
vania railroad. The boy was consider
ably bruised, but by dint of catching
at tho shrubs and vines that grow near
lie managed to brenk his fall its he
went, llis ear was suddenly t,tartlod
by the sound of a coming train. He
grasped at every plant near him, but
the soil beiu pxtretueiy thin, uoue had
struck root buliicieutly duop to ufford
him u hold.
JUST JIISSI.D THE TUAIN.
A3 the train ciine rushing ou, teem
ing to jar the earth and to precipitate
him stiil faster, the now terror-stricken
boy dug his bands and roughly booted
tc-etinto tho mountain's side. If he
had been able to guo-H at the tnoiu'iit
when tha train would pass beneath him
he might have acc derated his move
ments so us to laud below before the
irou monster reached the spot nnd
either tiud some fin;ill- nook iu which
to crouch as the train passod or scram
ble np some less st 'i p incline of the
mountain, but h f.und it impossible
to gauge the distance nt which he
heard th.. rumbling wheels nnd feared
to drop lost at that very moment the
train eome whizzing around tbo curve
just ahead.
Nearer and nearer he rolled to the
foot of the mountain, gathering im
petus as no wont and thou the hot nir
from the engine smotu his faco. tho
cinders blinding him, ho made a frantic
dig into tho earth aud bounced off the
mountain into the track below just as
the last car whizzed by him.nnd which
missud him by scarcely a foot. Young
Williamson says that he fainted just
as he felt the wiud from the yuuishing
car touch his face.
When at lust he was able to got up
he was obliged to almost crawl to hut
100 yards or so from where he bud fal
len, and on reaching it literally crept
iu on his hands and knees to tlie great
Hiirprlsi of the occupants of the hut.
Hero ho fainted again and had finally
to be carried home in a wagon. U.s
was not able to tell bis story for some
time, aud by the following day his
hair was gray about bis t- mple.

Causcus of the Conspirators Shows That tho

VILAS ALOE IS SYMPATHETIC
All the Others Vow with New Vehe
mence that if tho Tariff El, I Passes it
All It Will Be Substantially in the
Form That It Left tho Senate-Vill
Postpone Indefinitely Before They
Will Yield.
Washington. July 21
7 FEW minutes after 3 o'clock this
A afternoon, after the senrte ad
n j')Ur"e,, 1,10 Democrat sonators
Uu went into caucus for the puruoso
of formulating a programme in regard
to the disposal of tiie tariff biil. For
three hours the discussion continued,
and at the titno without having reached
any conclusion an adjournment was
taken until tomorrow ut the same hour.
Three members of the Democratic
party were conspicuous by their
shsonco from this conference. Thesj
uion wero Senators Hill, Murphy und
Irby, two or whom hns beu said to le
ready to votsagiiinst tiie bill in certain
emergencies, and one, Mr. Hill, who
has time Hiid again declared his oppo
sition to tbo bill bo long as the income
U-x remains a )mrt of it. Every other
senator now iu tho city was present
except Mr. Voorhcjs and Mr. Daniels,
excused by illness.
Mr. Hill was not notified f Cudally ot
the caucus until jii"t a few minutes
before tiie adjourutueut of the senate.
He was then notified iu the cloak room
by tyr. G irman und ri-qiiost?d to be
prpsent. Mr. Hill friuuly told the.
chairman of the caucus that inasmuch
as bo was opposed to the bill and
would do all he could to defeat it so
long as the party saw fit to keep the
incom tax iu it he did not believe he
ought to participate in a conference
t) ut bad for its ol j ct the passage of
the measure and the settlement of party
quarrels. Neither Mr. Murphy nor
My. Irby went ta the caucus and their
absence caused some remark.
THE CAUCUS AT WOilK.
Soon after tho caucus convened Mr.
Jarvis, ot North Carolina, offered a
resolution tuut the bill b. sent back to
conference without instructions of any
sort to tho conferees. Tiie conserva
tives, so called, the men who formu
lu.ed the present bill, did none ol tho
talking, but those who did talk weie as
ierious in their advouicy of tho s-u tta
bill us any member of the conservative s
could be und insisted us strenuously
tnat the senate bill should prevail.
Almost all of the debate uud cross Cre
between 8'uators was directeil at Mr.
Vilus in an effort to induce him to
withdraw llis motion to strike out ttio
differential ou tvfined sugar. Mr. Vilas
did not iudicate just what he would do
in this connection, but made a plea for
the administration. Souutors C.ff )iy
and Binuchard said thut they woul I 1.
content if tho senate placed a'llr."
duty of 45 pur cout. ou all sugars raw
aud refined and give the planters half
the bounty for lifOl. This increase in
the duty they Biil would compen
sate them to some t xtent for the less i f
the bounty which the commltteo
promised them should bo given and
which was d. elded upon by the torm.r
Democratio caucus.
If tho senate would not agroo to this
change wnich Mr. Cafl.ay, especially,
said wus of advantage to the growers
of sugar, the Louisiana senators must
insist not only on tha one-eighth of a
cent differential but the bounty tiut
wub promised He went further mid
warned the cauciu that unloia tuis was
done he and his colleague would vote

Mulberry street is a scene of activity
with the om ration of the finploye.i of

cavating for tiie main pipe of the Econ
omy Steam Heat company. From
Madison avenue to the municipal
building ther is u busy hive of toilers,
some swingiug picks and wielding
jhovels nnd others hauling and ar
ranging the big iron pipes with their
out. r wooden casiugs that will cover
the pipes through which the steam will
course.
Tho main bns already been laid from
the plant on j' ilersou avenue near tho
Johnson breaker, along Jefferson nvo
nue and dowu Mulberry street as far as
Adams avenue.
Tiie ditch in which the pip?s ar laid
h. throe feet wide and six feet deep.
The diggers yesterday near the munici
pal buildiug oncouutertd bu,;a stumps
and roots of trees lual wore reminder
of tha days when that territory was a
swamp. Many pe lvjtri.ms stopped to
watch the work of tha men in remov
ing thJ slumps, and several were
the comments made of the pro
gress of tbo Electric City. The
steam fitters Hre progressing as
rapidly as the diggers. Tue iron pipe
for the stream is of 8-inch calibw, of
different 1-ngtlis, some being IS, 2J, 22
and 21 feet long, and weighing mi an
average 500 pounds. This pipe fits in
side of u wooden tubing, tin lined,
with a ten-inch bore the circumference
of the tubing is n it quite three foot.
The steam pip3 is first "covered with a
thin layer of asbestos, around ' which
copnr wire is coiled to keep itiu place.
Around the outside of the tubing there
is another layer of asbestos, ou which
is spread u tar coating. Aa soon as the
connections are made the pipes ur'
covered up, and the dirt is tamped
lightly on each aide to allow no play
that might strain any of the joints or
connections and possitly cause an ex
plosion. At every alloy and court there is n
brunch pipe b illing from the main so
that It may bo ix'.en.h d ut nuy tim us
residents desire it. Tiler.) is also a con

are put to shut off t'ao steam on the
same principle as in tha water mains
