Senator Ingalls brouphttho Souator9
who hail llngorcil outsldo tho Scnato
after it had convened this morning In
with a rush by a. neat llttlo trick that is
not now to tho Senate, Senator Sher
man had just offered a joint bill con
gratulating tho Republic of Bra.ll
upon Its adoption of a republican
form of Government, when Senator
Ingalls noticed that thero was not a
quorum present. Ho Immediately called
for tho ayes and nays, and tho de
linquent Senators who had been loung
ing in tho corridors, thinking that somo
partisan bill was about to bo acted
upon, Hocked In, and, befoio tho call
of the roll had been finished, nearly
every scat was occupied. The bill had
to be explained over again to several of
them, and then It was adopted unant
momly. The resolution requesting the Presi
dent to invito tho King of Hawaii to ap
point delegates to tho Pan-American
CoDgrcss was agreed to.
At 2:10 tho Senate went into secret
session to consider tho nomination of
Thomas J. Morgan to bo Commissioner
of Indian Affairs.
An effort will bo mado to dispose ot
this nomination and tho nomination of
Dr. Dorchester to bo Superintendent of
Indian Schools bcfoic adjournment this
afternoon. Senator Dawes Is expoctcd
to address tho Scnato In defenses of tho
two nominations, and It is possiblo that
Senator Ingalls will oppc-so their con
tinuation. Tho President sent to the Scnato to
day tho following nominations:
E. U. Humpbroy of Colorado, to be Sur-Tejor-Gcneral
Iteglsters Tf Land Office 0. C. Palfrey
of Louisiana, at New Orleans, La.; Louis

continuation of tho legislative day of
ycstciday. 3Ii Allen of Michigan ma lo
the principal spcccli in support of tho
Republican code of rules. This was
Mr. Allen's first oppoitunlty to tiy his
voice duiing tho pi esent session. lie
found that it was still as powerful as
when it first filled the convention hall
in Michigan so thoioughly that his
leputalion as nu oiator was established
then and tbeie.
Mr. Allen spoke up to 11 :", when
yestei day's session adjourned and five
minutes later tho House was called to
order. Tho chaplain Invoked Divine
counsel upon the meeting, and tho clerk
lead the journal. Following tho usual
tactics, the Democrats demanded a loll
call on its approval. The Republican
side of the chamber was very tidn and
some of the Republicans feared that a
march was about to bo stolen upon
Mr. Walker of Massachusetts at onco

the Speaker piomptly decided to bo out
That such a ruling would apply to a
Republican motion had never euteicd
Mr. Walker's head. He was astounded,
and when ho had lccovered his breath
he exclaimed in agonizing tones:
"What' Mr. Speaker, a motion to ad
journ not in order!"
His dlsticss was so great and so evi
dently real that every man present
laughed at him. Theic was no appeal
fiom tho decision.
Thero are less than a third of tho
members picscnt to-day. Tho fact that
no vote Is likely to bo taken before
Friday has afforded tho majority an
oppoitunity to visit tho Departments,
and it would bo difficult to get a
quorum picscnt if one should bo needed
Senator Ktf munils Absent.
Senator Edmunds did not attend tho
meeting of tho Senate Committee on
Foreign Relations this morning. Ho has
not been at tho Capitol since tho
day when ho stated In tho secret
session of tho Senate that ho Intended
to resign his place on tho Committee on
Foreign Relations, nnd thero has been
no opportunity for him to carry his
threat into execution.
Senator Sherman, tho chairman of
tho committee, went to Senator El
minds' commlttcc-ioom this moinlnsr
to sco it ho was at tho Capitol to
urge him to attend the com
mittee meeting and forgot his
hnsty words of last week, but he was
informed that Mr. Edmunds was con
fined to his homo by illness and would
piobably not ho at tho Capitol to day.

What They Seo nml Uow Thoy S
Out Itoiisous Tar It,
Tho boy of whom I write, says a con
tiibutorto Forest ami Stream, is never
at a loss to find something to observe.
Last year a heavy shower caught him
Hhilo ho was fishing. From his ic
trcathokopt nn eye out to see what
ever there was to bo seen, and shoitly
after obscivcd tho diagon files, gieat
and lltllo, settling in tho tall brook
grass for shelter fiom tho lain. Ucforo
tho shower was fairly ocrhosaw tho
cedar birds como anil drive tho diagon
tiles from their coveit, hunting them
down in all their lacc-wlnged finery.
Tho gieat three-Inch dragon Hies,
pointed with black and yellow, wcio
too strong for the birds, liut tho llttlo
slender fellows, done up in fancy colors,
bronu, gicen, blue anil dusky, became
meat for the hunteis.
Labt full, when paddling u Cau
comgomoc stream, wo saw cedar hhds
sitting out on the msli beds near tho
mlddlo of tho stream. This was just
after the shower. Had they been catch
ing dragon Hies? Tho boy was not theio
to tell us.
Somo timo ago I icmonstratcd with
him for tluowlng stones at uklng blul,
but I was told that ho was doing it only
to please tho bird. Tiuo enough, ft
did please the blul. Fiom his peicli
on a high tree the king blul calculated
theemvoof each stono, clmttoilng do
tlanro as tho missile whl.zed by, mis
ing a fow fcot when It came too ncai,
only to seltlo ajjnin In tho bamo place.
As it amused both blul and boy I al
lowed It to continue, and fur several
ilaja the king blul ictuincd dally to
enloy the spoil.
One could not bo even tho best of
boys and not sometimes enjoy heo

tho most dlsticss Is caused by tho most
innocent intentions. The boy Is always
lnlnglng homo "chippies" and young
robbins, leaving tho dlstiacted patents
to mourn until their offspring is re
turned. Ono poor spanow doubtloss
denounced him as a mtudercr because
he choked ono of her yellow mouthed

against her expressed wishes, although
tho jury impaneled on the case gavc'an
Onco I know him to catch in his
hands n full-grown ycarllnc common

hood this boy's cry has been for
"sumsln llvo lo play wlv." No matter

(any stray kitten was treated by him
like n princess In disguiso), a bird, a
young mouso or oven a toad.

Congressmen William E. Mason, tho
short, stout West SIder with the scrambled
hair, as the Chicago UeraUl puts it, always
has a good story to fit every occasion.
While ho was working hard week after
week for the appointment of his filcud,
Chris Mamer, as Collector of Internal ItcV
cimo in Chicago, he used to call on the
President very often to press his claims.
Oeo uveulny lie was tolcso for Chicago,
and in thj afternoon he called on .Mr. Har
llfon. "Mr. President," he said, as ho
was ushered into the august presence, "I
lcao for home tonight, and thought I
ttould drop In and seo if I could be the
messenger of any glad tidings to my con
stituents." The rrtsldcnt worked oft ono
of his threadbare excuses for delay In the
matter of Chicago appointments and then
Mason took a chair and said: "Mr. Presi
dent, befoio I no I would llko to tell jou a
lltllo story on a Chicago friend of mine.
About two jears ago his father died and
left him all ho possessed a valuable piece
of property. As soon as the will was ad
mitted to probate thero was launched upon
the joung heir a tiresome succession of
writs of attachment, ejectment, etc., all di
rected against this plcco of property.
About a jear lutcrl met hlmonoday and
asked him how ho was gcttluR along. 'Not
very well, Hilly,' he sighed. 'That
plcco of piopeity 1 luheiitcd has clvenmo
to much trouble that I sometimes wish the
old man hadn't died.' " Then the West

Washington's hospitals havo been !
crowded this winter, and many cases !
hao been fatal so many, Indeed, that
tho physicians in chargo aro loth to i
dwell upon tho subject. The "grip" !
had tho effect of temporarily crowding
fico wards. As n rulo tho vast major
ity oi euose suiienng liotn tins ailment
were dcllcato people, who had been ac
custom 3d to luxury, or at least to
working in well-hcatcd offices, and wcro
so susceptible that they contracted the
dlscaso wheio the laboiing man, accus
tomed to exposure, escaped.
Of those really sick with "la gtlppe"
tho greater number had comfortable
homes of their own, and so the preva
lence of tho dlscaso did not affect hos
pital wards as much ns might have been
supposed. Tho now prevailing diseases
arc rheumatism, typhoid fever, pucu
monla and klndicd lung troubles.
In reply to uuestions nut by a CniTio
man, Dr. W. A. Ilutton, resident
pliNslcian at tho Garfield Memorial
Hospital, said: "Yes, wo nio badly
crowded Just now, but our cramped
condition Is leferrablo to the fico wards.
For the four or fivo months Just past we
havo been compelled to refuse from fif
teen to twenty patients of this class per
month. For example, there was a total
admission last month of slty-ono to the
free wards, and wo wero obliged to ro

"Tho nppropilatlon by Congicss for
this hospital Is $12,500 annually, which
is not enough for our needs. Thus far
wo linAc been ablo to barely get along
with tho amount voted us, and with
these eight additional beds wo will not
have money enough to run tho hospital.
Thoaveingo slay of each patient In tho
hospital is twenty-two days. This
would ndd, in louud numbers, 120 ad
ditional patients to be treated annually.
If wo do not get additional appropria
tions these patients willhavo to be pio
idcd for in somo other way.
"The Gai field Hospital is constantly
giowing In popularity, and wc consider
that we are only beginning, in com
parison with what wc believe the hos
pital will do some day. This is abso
lutely a gcncial hospital, and wo aio
constantly having applications from
eeiy paitof tho United States. Many
of these we have not tho room to ac
commodate, and sometimes it is par
ticularly hind to icfuso patients who
hao tiavelcd a gioat tlistanco and
spent all their money to come to the
hospital to be treated.
"Our grounds cover seven actcs of
beautiful hill land at tho head of Tenth
sticet and we have plenty of 100m to
glow. As wo mo constantly building
and impioWne, it may appear that wo
aie extravagant to thoso who do not
know the details of what has been ac
complished. The majority of our cases
are l3j)hoid fever and lung tioublcs,
divided about equally. We also havo
a gieat deal of lheutuutlsm."
In speaking of cases of alcoholism,
the doctor said that his piacticc was to
cut ofT the patient's supply of whisky
cutiiely, and after they becamo well
enough to tako caio of themselves they
como back nnd thank him for it.
"I preter very much," he continued,
"not to havo that class of patients. 1
think theio ought to be an inebriate
asylum built cxpicssly for them, and I
heuitily advocate tho proposed plan to
do so. Wc will not lcccivc a man who
merely comes because ho Is drunk.

Is much better. Out of tho ninety cases
alluded to but foui wore colored, mid

"Our annual apmopiiatlon is $30,000,
but will bo slightly In excess of that
sum this year. Wo vciy much need a

COLORED MEN'S RIGHTS.
WILL NOT BE RECEIVED AS GUESTS
AT SOME HOTELS.
I'roiirlelnr S.iy Tlmy Will Not llntor

11m Wet: IIoiisb Ono ltlo to
The question of tho position ot col
ored men under the civil rights law ns
guests nt hotels has been lalscd In an
inteicstlng fashion by a llttlo episode
that 1ms somewliat disturbed
the equanimity of Landlord Ppof
foul of tho RIpgB Houso. On
Monday afternoon iithanlel McKay, a
well-known Republican of decidedly
radical Ideas, who took a vciy active
part against PieMdcnt Cleveland In tho
campaign of 18S8, nnd who Is n guest
at the hotel, linlted 11. 0. 0. Astwood,
n colored man, nnd cx-Mlnlstcr to S.m
Domingo, to take dinner with him. Mr.
Astwoo"iI, who nas not registered, but
was at the hotel to keep an appoint
ment with Mr. McKay, accepted, and
tho two took seats in tho dlulng-room.
Just at this time Congressman Thomas
AV. Gi hues, who has been boarding nt
the hotel, came In and sal down nt the
aiuc table. As soon, however, as ho
saw Mr. Astvvood he aiose. and, going
to tho olllcc, paid his bill, dcclaiing
that ho would not stay at
a hotel which received ncgioes
ns guests. It was lcportcd that Con
gressman Lester of Georgia, who Is
boarding at tho Rlggs Houso with his
family, also tlucalcncd to leavo If ho
found that the hotel entertained negroes
Mr. McKnv, while e.xpicsstng the
hope that the incident would not injure
tho hotel, said that ho had nothing to
rcgictfor his part, and Unit Representa
tive Grimes should bo nshamed of him
self. Mr. Astwood did not know of the
lcason why the Congccssman left the
table until Informed somo tlmo alter
ward. When asked this moining If Con
gicssmun Lester had cairicd out his
tin cat to leave tho hotel, Mr. SpofToul,
the proprietor, said that that gentleman
had said nothing to him about such a
"All that I know about tbo matter,"
he continued, ''is what I have seen In
tho papers. Tf I had been mound at
the time thorc would have been uo
trouble. As to the position of the
Rlggs House in the matter of tcceiv
Ing colored men as guests tho
hotel has been hero long enough to hive
that well known." Without stating
specifically what this established cus
tom of the Riggs House was, Mr. Spot
foul gave the impiession that the hotel
did notwaut negroes as guests.
Inquiry at tbo leading hotels showed
that neai'ly nil entertained this view of
"Our position," said Uio clcik of tho
Arlington, "is that of the ilist-cliss
hotels of Xcw Yoik nnd other cities.
AVc do not entertain ncgioes. Nobody
wishes to offend them, butisa matter of
piotcction of oui business wo cannot
lcccivc them Thoy lccognbc this, and
I do not think that any have ever up
plied heiefoi looms."
At tho Randall and Metiopolitau
hotels it was also stated that they had
nevei had any applications fiomcoloicd
"The question has ncvci been l.ilsed
hcie," said tho clcik at Willard's
Hotel, "but my impiession is that
under the civil lights law wo
would have uo light to icfuso a
coloied man who asks foi a loom.
AVo could glvo him a loom
without any windows, and otherwise
unfit for occupation, howcvci, If we
did not caic to enteitain him. Whether
wc would bo obliged to scivo him meals
Is a question I can't answer. If a
sensible coloied man, like ox-Senator
Pinchbock, came heic and asked foi a
loom, nnd that meals ho served in his
loom, ho would ho lccclvcd without
At the Ebbitt House it was said that
coloied men had never been entertained
there, and thai nono had ever applied
for looms, whllo at the National it was
stated that the hotel would Receive
reputable coloied men just as it would
those of nny other l.ice.
Apropos of the incident at the Rlggs
House, it is iccallcd that ox-Senator
Blanche Iv. lliuce of Mississippi, tho
present Recouler of Deeds of the Dis
tiict and one of tho ablest col
ored men who has been In public
life, boarded for some tlmo at Wil
lard's. His meals wcie seived In his
rooms, mid his conduct was always so
couiteous, fccnslblo and discieet that no
xv bite guest ever thought of objecting
lo his piescnce as a guest of tho hotel.
When the civil lights law was passed
tho negroes weie disposed to avail
themselves to the utmost of the now
privileges which they fancied it con
tcncd upon them. Out of this disposi
tion on theii part leached a caso that
made a big commotion In tho Distiict
at the time. Mr. Amau the Ninth stieet
icstauiatcur, posted a notico in his
place saying that drinks wcic $10 each,
hut that a liberal icductlon would bu
made to lcgular customeis. This led
to a suit by a colored man, and lu the
lower com t Amau was fined and the
coloied man awaulcd damages.
An appeal was taken and Ben Butler
aigucd the caso for Amau in tho
higher court. He contended tint a
.'aloon-keepci could no moie be com
pellet! to sell llquoi to a man
if he did not wish to than any
Nervous, Bilious or Congestive Forms.
