v Tho eucar schedule of tho Tariff Wit
was reached to day, and Mr. Halo

speech In favor of It.
As an habltuo of tho galleries re
I marked, "Tho speech was tho speech of
Hale, but tho sentiment was tho senti
ment of Hlalnc."
It Is Imposstblo to say with any cer
tainty how long tho debato on reci
procity will continue. There arc a
number of reciprocity amendments now
pending In tho Senate, including, beside
that or Mr. Halo, thoso offered by Mr.
Aldrlch, Mr. Sherman (yesterday), and
Mr. Pierce of North Dakota.
Mr. Plcrco's amendment Is tho ono
embodying moro nearly than any other
tho Ideas of President Harrison. In
deed, It was understood at tho time, and
so published In Tun Critic, that tliti
particular proposition was drafted by
Picsldcnt Harrison himself and handed
by him to Mr. Pierce for Introduction In
tho Senate, that gentleman's relation
with tho President being moro Inilinut
than thoso of any other Senator.

Congress on Wednesday last by Con

scene following have just begun to tie

Republicans and Democrats alike can

TRACY IN A QDANDARY.
The l)f pnrtmnt Dnnn't Know What
to Do trith tlie OlilcflRtt.
The Navy Department has done
nolhing about the repairs on the Chi
cago. Several bureau chiefs were
closeted with the Secretary yesterday
afternoon, when the mechanical needs
of the vessel were discussed In con nee
tlon with the political aspect of the case.
One proposition Is to send the Chicago
to sea for a short trip lone: enough to
keep her engaged until after the Con
grrsMonal elections, when she could be
sent to Rostnn. This delay would re
move the obligation of elving public
notice of the employment of extra labor
and save the Department the embarraw
menl of answering any more Cummlngs
The Secretary Is In a qusmlary re
garding the disposition of the Chicago.
There seems to be no doubt as to the
serious disability ot the vessel, since
Knginrer in-Chief Melville and Chief
Constructor Wilson recommend exten
sive repairs to machinery and hull. The
Department is, on the other hand, loath
to Incur any risk of Democratic criti
cism, warned, as it is. by the Klttery
Yard nffalr, where 800 men were about
to Iks engaged six weeks before there
could be any material secured.
A NOVEL DECISION.
IteAlnnrnnt-KrcpoM May Sett Drinks
F. P. Innaronc, a restaurant keeper
at No. 811 O street northwest, was on
tilal this morning In the Police Court
charged with keeping n Sunday bur.
The Information was sworn to and tho
testimony was given on tho part of tho
Government by Oniccr Coiner. He
stood on a box and saw pooplo drinking
from glasses. Tbo distance, he said,
was about forty or fifty feet.
Tho defendant admitted that ho had
served his regularguosts with wlno and
beer on Sundays, nnd Judgo Mills de
cided that any man who kept n res
taurant nnd cboso to servo drinks on
tho tabic, with or without pay, did not
come under the provisions of the law.
He dismissed tho case.

Miiomltt! In .llyMery filia Avoided the
Oilier llonnler In the llmur, nnd
Seemed In Trouble,
There seems to be a mystery sur
rounding the death ol Mrs. Jennie Horil
Conkllng at her boarding house, No.
000 K street, on Sunday. It appears
that she had !een an Innnte of the
house but a short time. Lait Wednes
day she went to the proprietress of the
house and was given a room. Mrs.
Conkllng was quite tecluded and
avoided tbe other Itoarders In the house.
On Saturday she acted in a strunie
manner, which attracted tbe attention
of Mrs. Parsons, the landlady, and other
hoarders. She was repeatedly sending
out messages and evidently seemed to
be in trouble. At 10 o'clock that night
a servant employed In the house found
Mrs. Conkllng very sick In her room,
and Dr. Gallagher was called In. He
Immediately came to the conclusion
that she was suffering from an overdose
of morphine or other poison. Other
physicians wire called In to consult with
biin, and they all agreed on the ue of
remedies, but tbey were without avail,
as the woman could not be restored to
consciousness Hie remained In this
condition until 2 o'clock Suaday after
noon, when she died.
The circumstances were so peculiar
tbat, after a consultation, it was deeoted
advisable to call in tbe coroner, awl at
rlrst he was at a loss what t3 do. Yes
terday, alter considering the matter, he
gave a certificate to the effect that death
was due to an overdose of sulphate of
morphia carelessly administered.
In the ineaqtltne tbe relatives of Mrs.
CciikllBif in i'hllsdelphla had been
communicated with by telegraph, awl
tbe remains were removed to Spear's
undertaking rooms. Those who Know
Mrs. Conkllng beat repudiate the idea of
btr committing suicide, as no cause cub
possibly be gives for any such rash act.

SCANDALS M THE PENSION OFFICE.
Wbt a Lwdiof Republican Journal
Says About Them.
OFFICIAL RECORDS WERE ABSTRACTED
By One of Raam's Pet OUrksA Reit
Fsktte Bem That Gains Promo
tion for Investers,
Kkw Yohk, Sept. 2. The Tribnm
some time ago mentioned Jacob R. Van
Mater, chief of the Hoard of Review,
among a coterie who had formed a
Pension Office real estate pool, which
proved fortunate In promotions lo In
vestors, and of which there may be
more to say hereafter. It is charged
tbat, In the claim of a gallant one
armed soldier, whose arm was ampu
tated at the shoulder joint, Van Mater
wilfully, and from fear of evil conse
quences to himself, removed from the
fllo of tho case an Important adjudi
catory or advisory slip which ho had
himself signed, recommending Its al
lowance. Tho circumstances attend
KXTItRMICLT SnitlOUS ACT
which Is punished by statute ronder
It still moro reprehensible. Tho dis
abled clerk who had filed his claim for
a reissue orroratlngof his case had done
so under the "Physical Wreck's" rule;
and It is said than Van Slater himself
urged the man to have bis rejected claim
reopened, and to argue it under Com
mhslt.m r Tanner, and wrote a favorable
opinion himself. Mr. Ualley, tbe new
Rf-rtihllran chief of tho law division,
wrote an adverse opinion.
The case was arsrued in tbe ofllce, was
allotud and the niom-y paid. At the
time of the overhauling of the "re
iatii." however, this allowance was
de 'ate 1 Illegal and
TIIK UNroilTI'.N.VTK HKUKFICiArir
was compelled to refund the money.
Upon tbe attempt of tbo clerk and ex
Sdldhrtodiifeml bis right to the extra
allowance of pension, It was found that
Mr. Van Mater's slip had disappeared
from the caie, which had Iain for some
days upon his own desk, while the ad
verse slip of Mr. Ualley was still there.
It was charged at the time that Van
Maler, who alone had any Interest In the
disappearance of the slip, had become
irigimneu ami nan abstracted It. It Is
further charged that these facts were
repotted lo Commissioner Katun, under
whose administration the transaction
occurred, and also to tbe Secretary.
Acd yet Mr. Raum. ou August 11,
MKHUKH OK TICK HIXO
to the House Committee on Appropria
tions la the follow I iri language: "If I
were asked to state conscientiously
what ought to be done for the haaent
of the service, I would say, 'Increase
tbe salaries of those heads of divisions.'
Take tbechief of the Hoard of Review,
who passes upon all the claims of the
oritce; he get f.'.OOO a year.
"Tbe Chairman Would you get a
"Commissioner Raum If I had not
ftdvjul him to stay he would have gone
two or three inoaihs ago. He bad very
excellent offers to go out nf the orttce,
but 1 advised him to stay. It Is not
necessary to ssy to you gentlemen of
experience tbat $3,000 Is a suall salary
for a man of sufficient ability to keep
one of those places."
Mr. Kauai, however, roavealeatly
forgot, when be made this statement to
tbe committee, a small
to the autouat of Van Mater's salary,
or, relner, of his cost to the Govern
ment; for be has a brother with blat ia
tbe Iktard of Review, at a salary of
$1,800 a year, whose sole duty for years
past bas beea to stamp cases for his
Uotbtr, l he chief, ilk a rubber stamp
which is all that be is at for. ladaatl,

ANOTHER POLICE OUTRAGE,
Officer Ilnril Clu1 n Itenpertntila llnl
tifM JIhh Wltliont Cmme.
There was another brutal police out
rage last night. At the Drlcklayers'
picnic at the Schuetren Park a young
man named Drake, a respectable busi
ness man, was clubbed by Officer Hurd
for no reason whatever.
There was a fight between two men,
and Drake, who illd not know cither of
Ihrm, attempted to separate them.
When Officer Html came up the men
ran away, but thagallant officer thought
It bis duty to make nn arrest anyhow
and grabbed Drako. The latter pro
tested, but the officer brutally draaged
him along and flnallv dealt him a hoavy
blow with his night "stick.
Congressman Qulnn. who was pres
ent, denounced tbo officer's action In
tho most vigorous language, as did a
number of other well-known gentlemen.
Hurd finally released his prisoner
when ho was at last satisfied that ho
had the wrong man, and said ho was
sorry be had clubbed lilm.
Mr. Drako will mako a complaint
against tho officer, and there Is a very
bright prospect that ho will bo dismissed
from the force In disgrace. Mr. Drake
is a cripple, having a cork leg. The
officer was n big, burly, brawny, brute.
