Special to the Scrsnton Tribune.
Harrlsburg, March 8. The house
adopted a resolution today for an In
vestigation of the Keeley cute treat
ment by the state board of public chari
ties. It m introduced by Air. Millard,
of ' SusquWianna, by request of the
Catholic Temperance league of Luzerne
county- A WHRKlsh member tried to
make the resolution ridiculous by offer
ing an amendment that ."all the old
drunkards In the state be sent to the
Xeeley Institutes at the expense of the
mate." The amendment was ruled out
of order. The resolution follows:
Whereas, Drunkenness Is said to be (in
Increasing evil In the land and to present
one of the most serious features of the
problem of caring for the criminal and
indigent classes by direction and under
control of the state, and
Whereas. It it now being widely main
tained that drunkenness Is more often a
disease that moral frailty or crime, and
can be cured by scientific medical treat
ment. Therefore, be It
Kesolved, It the senate concur, that the
state board of public charities be and Is
hereby authorized and empowered to
make careful Inquiry Into the matter of
tiro treatment of drunkenness as a dis
ease and is instructed to make report to
the general assembly at the session of 1!7
as to the efficacy of such treatment so
far as ft can be determined, and as to
whether it Is feasible to upply any of the
existing methods of treatment or some
modification thereof In connection with
the management of the penal, charitable
and reformatory Institutions of the state.
A special order was made for the
Clarency amendment to the banking
act so as to relieve building and loan
associations from making semi-annual
report to the department for second
reading on next Wednesday and third
reading the following Thursday. Mr.
Clarency has received petitions from
four-fifths of the local building and
loan associations In the state urging
the passage of the bill. The law in Its
presents form requires these concerns
to make semi-annual report to the de
partment, to be published in the news
papers of the county In which the prin
cipal otlice is located.
For Better llecr.
Representative Crothers. of Phila
delphia, and Griggsby. of Lawrence,
have pure food bills. Mr. Griggsby has
two measures, one forbidding the adul
teration of food and drugs, and the
other the doctoring of beer and liquors.
Uoth bills are on the second reading
calendar. tr. Crotnere has cuUul uw
Hewitt pure food measure, which
passed the last session and was vetoed
by Governor Pattison. Today Mr.
Crothers asked for a special order for
his bill. This started up the Ire of Mr.
sGrlggsby, who said that In his ex
perience in two legislatures this was
the most discourteous act he had seen
offered to a fellow-member. He ex
plained what his bills are and that they
are ahead of the Crothers measures on
the calendar. He said he hrfd as much
respect for the memory of IX-n Hewitt
as any man. but that had no bearing
on the question at Issue. The Crothers
resolution was voted down by a pro
nounced majority.
Mr. Griggsby said when the pure food
bill comes up next week he would
amend It to knock out things at the re
quest of the State Pharmaceutical as
sociation. A delegation of druggists
was here last week protesting against
the Insertion of drugs, claiming that
the act of 1SS7, to prevent the adultera
tion of drugs. Is sufficient. It leaves the
matter in charge of a committee of ex
perts who are now busy prosecuting
people for adulterating medicines all
over the state.
Mr. Blddle, of P.edford, wanted a spe
cial order for the E. W. Smiley road
bill, but he did not get it. He said
he had received letters and petitions
from farmers all over the state ask
ing for the passage of a road bill of
lome kind. The bill provides that each
county shall constitute a separate road
district, and that a convention be held
annually of delegates from the town
ships. The -convention Is to formulate
regulations for Improvement of the
roads In the county and they are to be
enforced by township supervisors.
Smith Ulll Petitions.
A cart load of documents were
dumped on Speaker Walton's desk. The
patriotic societies have evidently been
very active In the Interest of the Smith
bill making it a misdemeanor for any
teacher to wear any religious garb or
insignia in the public schools. The peti
tions for the measure came like an
avalanche, and from all quarters of the
state. So far, not a remonstrance has
been filed against the bill. Klther the
denominations Intended to be restrained
are Indifferent or passive In their oppo
sition. There were many protests
against the repeal of the oleo law and
petitions for the passage of the Pennl
well local option law. Although the
Farr compulsory education bill has
passed the final stage In the house and
is certain to go through the senate, peti
tions continue to pour In from every
quarter of the state. .
A bill was introduced by Mr. Har
vey, of Luzerne, making It unlawful In
the manufacture of brooms and brushes
to employ more than C per cent, of the
labor from the convict labor of any
penal Institution.
Mr. Schwarz, of Monroe, presented a
bill for a license of 125 for livery stable
keepers In boroughs. Violation of tho
act Is made punishable by a fine of
and costs for the, use of the borough.
Bills were also Introduced allowing
Justices of the peace to divide the costs
between the prosecutor and defendant
where the prosecutor falls to establish
charges In petty criminal suits; provid
ing that teachers' Institutes be held In
July and August and that the teachers
be paid while In attendance.

, Hmvo Acted in Self-Defense.
Pottsvllle, Pa., March 8. In the trial
of .Anthony De Santo, for the murder
of Richard Lloyd at Mlnersvllle on the
night of Jan. 16, the commonwealth
rested shortly before noon today. Tho
evidence will not show that the killing
was premeditated. The prisoner was
put on the Btand in his own behalf. He
was cool and collected and told a
straight story. He said that he was
sitting at home that night. His wife
and mother-in-law were with him. His
two children were In bed. The men,
Urlfllths and Lloyd, knocked at the
door twice before any answer was made
and then his mother-ln-luw told the
men to go away. They refused to go
and then she went out to get police aid.
While she was gone the men demanded
to get in for immoral purposes.
lie Suuto told the men to go away
several times, and when they did not go
he went out. When the witness opened
the door his wife cautioned hint to
mind himself, for there were three men
and one was coming towards him.
Griffiths then seized him by the neck
and the other men kept hitting him on
the back. The witness then drew tho
knife from his pocket and struck Grif
fiths, and then turned around and
struck the man now dead, Lloyd. De
Santo said that he saw three men that
night. He also corroborated other wit
nesses In the fact that he delivered him
self up to the authorities.
James Lacy, a next door neighbor,
r testified that he heard the men at the
next door and heard De Santo repeated
ly tell the men to go away. De Sunto's
wife Is a comely young American girl
and she sits by bis side during the trial.

Eraburgoon Valley and Central.
Philadelphia. March 8. The officials
of the Lehigh Valley and Jersey Central
railroads held a meeting at Bethlehem

taken In regard to the new coal freight
rates presented to them by the Reading
company could not be learned.

ager II. H. Kingston, and Coal Freight

on the two roads as they are now re
ceiving to East Penn and Bethlehem
The threatened coal war has had a
depressing tendency upon the stock of
the Lehigh Valley, and today It touched
the lowest point reached since 1877. The
stock fell today from 29 to Tii., where
It closed. The stock of the Lehigh Nav
igation company also fell from 44 to
40. There was very little movement
In the stock of the Reading company,
and It remains firm at 3. The oft re
peated rumor that the Lehigh Valley
Is to go Into the hands of a receiver was
circulated on the streets again today,
but an official denial that suOi a thing
Is Imminent was made at the office of
the company.
The absolute embargo placed by the
Reading upon the coal of the Lehigh
Vulley and Jersey Central roads on
Wednesday, and which prevented them
sending any coal Into this city, was
raised today. In explanation of the
raising of the embargo It was stated by
the Reading officials that the congested
condition of the road had been relieved
and that freight would again be moved
freely. The Reading's new freight rate
to the Lehigh Valley and Jersey Cen
tral goes Into effect on Monday.

The Longfellow was to have left here
lust night lor New Orleans, but the
fog was so dense thut she wus not sent
out. This morning the fog wus still
very thick, but It was decided to sail.
Tne boat had aboard about 100 pas
sengers. The Longfellow put out from her
wharf shortly before 7 o'clock and the
tov.'boat Hercules Carrell was sent out
to eiii her in passing both bridges. The
Carrell was secured to the stern of the
Longfellow, and both boats passed
down the river to a point about fifty
yards above the Chesapeake and Ohio
bridge, where the Longfellow became
Collision Inevitable.
Watchers on shore saw that the bow
was pointed directly for the Kentucky
shore, and when fully fifty yards dis
tant it was seen a collision was inevit
able. The Carrel swung around and
the strain almost caused the hawsers
to part, but they held fast for the time
being and It was thought for a moment
that the collision could be averted, but
a moment later It became apparent that
she would strike.
Many of the passengers were In their
state rooms. The shrill blasts of the
whistle on both the Carrel and Long
fellow were the first warnings of any
danger. The fog was so dense that
notslng seen. The officers
were cool and collected and retained
their presence of mind. The crew were
summoned and preparations mude for
removing the passengers to the Carrel,
which was still moored alongside.
The sound when the boat was struck
could be heard for several squares
away. A moment later the river was
black with floating wreckage ami
freight. The passengers escaped to the
Carrell and when the collision occurred
the hawser broke, while the Carrell
drifted to the Kentucky side of the
river. The wreck sank quickly, and

The steamer Longfellow was one of
the largest, best known and handsomest
packets on the Ohio river.
History of tho Crnft
The Longfellow was built In 1S70 at
Cincinnati and named the U. P.
Schenck. Its tonnage was 0,178; Its
length when built was 21)1 feet, and Its
beam forty-two feet. About two years
ago It was lengthened thirty feet and
named anew, and since then has been
muklng regular trips. The boat was
valued at J--..VI0 and was Insured for
$12,000. When first built she was mod
eled for freight carrying, but when re
modelled was mude into as large and
roomy a passenger steamer as the river
carried. She was commanded by John
K. Klrker. In addition to the officers
there were thirty roustubouts, two bak
ers, two chambermaids, four fireman
and a second mate. After the boat went
to pieces the cabin and parts of the
hull floated down the river. Tugs
chased them and succeeded In landing
them at different points down the river.
In the wreckage the body of Mrs. Aull
was found.
The boat carried 000 tons of freight,
mainly Insured. Among the Items were
500 threshing machines of the Wulter
A. Wood company, sold In the south.,

Only One liallot Taken to Secure a
l nmoved Whllo Listening to tho Words
That Doomed II I in to Death-Jeored
ut by tho Mob A Jury of
One Mind.
Minneapolis, Minn., March 8. Guilty
as charged, was the verdict rendered
today at the trial of Harry T. Hay
ward. On the night of Deo. 3 last Cath
erine Ging was murdered by Claus A.
Bllxt at the instigation of Hay ward,
who at the moment the murder was
committed was occupying a seat at the
Grand Opera House.
The Jury, after retiring, ate dinner,
took one ballot, and found him guilty
of murder in the first degree. Two
hours later It filed Into court and the
verdict was read. The jury retired at
11 o'clock this morning after listening
to Attorney Erwln's closing remarks
and the judge's charge. At 2.10 it re
ported an agreement, and at 2.80 the
verdict was rendered.
When Hay ward appeared he was
faultlessly dressed, as usual, and ap
parently as cool as ever, but he was
somewhat out of . humor, for' he threw
his hat down on' the ittorney's table
with force enought to split it. His at
torneys cautioned him hot to exhibit
any temper, and he subsided.
When the verdict was presented
every eye was turned to Hayward as
the clerk started to read the paper.
There was nothing In his face to indi
cate that he had heard a word of It.
He threw his head back as the word
"guilty" was pronounced, but It was
only to adjust his color band. He did
not change color In the slightest. Then
looking around at the crowd he raised
his eye brows Inquiringly.
During the polling of the jury he lis
tened to the answers, but the expres
sion in his face was one of indignation
ruther than any other sentiment. In
obedtance to the Instructions of County
Attorney Nye, who was absent on ac
count of sickness, A. H. Hall, assist
ant attorney, moved for Immediate
sentence, but the court decided not to
pronounce sentence utll Monday.
Iluyward was then taken back to jail
under a stronger guard of officers. He
grinned at the mob and appeured to be
interested In Its noisy demonstrations.
Compliments of tho Mob.
"Good-bye, Harry, old boy, you are a
dead duck," yelled one of the crowd, as
Hayward was being escorted back to
the jail.
"Not yet," answered Hayward In a
firm voice.
The Jury was averse to talking at all
about, anything, but It was ultimately
learned from one of the members that a
vote was not taken until about half an
hour after dinner, and thut only one
was necessury.
W, W. Hayward learned the news of
his son's conviction from an extra pa
per purchased from a newsboy. Dr. T.
T. Hayward, a brother of Harry, spoke
as follows about the verdict:
"1 have told my father all along that
nothing but a verdict of guilty could be
expected from the line of defense which
has been pursued. But the old man
don't believe now thut Harry ever did
the thing. I fought against the adop
tion of thl.i line of defense all along.
Harry's condition of mind was nut right
on moral questions. Call It Insanity, If
you will. His mind was disordered on
that subject. Hu could not distinguish
between right and wrong.
"Father would hot admit that ' his
son could do such a thing, even If hu
was Insane, and therefore he Insisted
on this line of defense."
Monday, April 15, has been set as the
date of the trial of Claus Bllxt. It Is
learned from good authority that Judge
Pond will hear the oase In accordance
with, ah agreement between the Judges.
Wltnoasca Are Arrested.
Two of the most Important witnesses
for the (U'fcnse In the Hayward case
were tonight arrested on the charge of
perjury upon complaints sworn out by
R. R. Odell, attorney for C. A. Bllxt,
the real murderer. ,'hlle the warrants
were Issued at the Instance of Odell
It Is the prevailing, opinion that he Is
acting In accord with an agreement
with the state's attorney. The wit
nesses arrested are: G. A. Orlndall and
Miss Maggie Wachter, formerly a sten
ographer In the employ of Bllxt's at
torney. The testimony upon which the
warrant for Grlndall Is based Is rela
tive to the mysterious "third man."
Orindnll declared positively that on the
night of the murder he saw a man enter
the buggy which Miss Glng was driving
near the West hotel. His testimony
was uncorroborated, while a number
of other witnesses said he, was a mile
or more away from the West hotel at
the time specified. i,
Miss Wach tor's testimony was In re

been made by Bllxt to hit attorney to

And You Know the Rest.
the effect that Adry Hayward had Insti
gated the murder and that the two had
plunned to throw the crime upon Harry
should they be arrested for It. MIbs
Wachter has testified that Bllxt had
made the statement that Adry was the
Instigator of the murder and had been
severely chlded for so doing.
The arrests were totally unexpected,
and Miss Wachter and Grlndall were
locked up In the central police station
early this evening. Several other wit
nesses are said to be on the state's list,
but some of them are known o have
left town.
Fears of Financial Disorder No Longer
Retard tho Growth of lluslness-Tlio
General Outlook Seems Hopeful.
New York, March 9. R. G. Dunn and
Co.'s weekly review tomorrow will say:
Congressional adjournment and proof
that though the rate of exchange rises
to and even above the shipping point,
gold does not go out, have produced a
much better feeling. Prices do not im
prove, and there Is on the whole no
gain, but some loss In wages, while
strikes of 15,000 coal miners near Pitts
burg and several thousand building
workers here, besides strikes In ten
or twelve textile and Iron establish
ments further lessen purchasing power
for the-time.
But anticipation of Inproved demand
for goods is general, and many are
manufacturing and buying beyond
present needs on the strength of It.
Fears of financial disorders no longer
retard the growth of business.
9trlkes to resist the reduction of
wages In several textile Works, and re
ductions effected In some others, by
no means contradict the accounts that
the mills are receiving somewhat bet
ter orders. Prices of goods are very
low and print cloths have fullen to 2.44
cents below any former record.
Money markets have hardened some
what, and rather more commercial pa
per Is offered, especially In dry goods.
Failures for the week have been 234 In
the United States against 248 last year,
and CS In Canada against GO last year.
Tho Missing Lifo Insurance Agent Stfll
New York, March 8. No trace of the
whereabouts of the Rev. John Owen
Ilache, the missing agent of the Union
Central Life Insurance company, of
Cincinnati, have been received In this
city us yet. President Pattison said
this morning:
"We have found no traceof Mr. Bache
yet. We are looking for him with our
own men. It seems to be settled that
he had considerable money with him
and somebody may have followed him
for this, so that he may have met with
foul play. It Is also pretty well settled
that he left the boat at Fall River and
took the train for Boston, so if any
thing has happened to him, we think it
was In that city."
