Mislracl of the More Important Pro
ceedings of Bolli Houses.
Tuesday, 3Jay 5.
In llio Senate, Mr. Hill proceeded with Ins
apposition to tho bond resolution. Ho was cn
deuvoriup, he said, to prevent tho Scnato from
making iuself ridiculous. It did tlint often
enough, he added. This resolution called for
facts tlint wcro already reported to tho Senate.
"Why, thereforo, should Senators admit they
wcro "ignoramuses"? To bo sure, said Mr.
Mill, there is no law against Senators making
fools of themselves, but they ought not to do it
needlessly by this "foolish, contemptible, ab
surd " resolution. "Jf you cau't comprehend
the reports already made, then resign your
seats," ho said savagely.
Mr. Hill, commenting on the contracts', said
that August Bolmont & Company, Drcxel,
Morgan & Company, rcinescnting Rothchild &
Son, of London ; Selipmau & Company, of New
York, and others, wcro those who contracted
with Secretary Sherman. Thin, as now, said
the Senator, tho syndicates got tho bonds.
Mon who had tho money invested it. Tho
Senator Mild it was not that bo cared anything
for Mr. CailUlo or for this Administration, but
if these bond contracts were to bo paraded "on
tliecttifnp" inTJTTT coming campaign, then ho
proposed to place tho Sherman contracts along
side tho Carlisle contracts showing that tho
former wore with the same baukers, " the same
J. l'ierpont Morgan that you aro throwing in
Mr. Cleveland's face."
A tilt occurred between Mr. Fcttigrcw and
Mr. Hill as to what course Secretary Carlisle
should have pursued in awarding forfeited
bonds Mi. IMligrew asserting that the award
to Moigim & Co. was "rotten and dishonest to
In tho House, Mr. Henderson (Iowa, R.),
from the Committee on Utiles, ollcred a special
ordor setting aside to-morrow and Wednesday
of next week for the cotiiideiaiion of private
pension bills, subject to con foicnco reports on
appropriation bills. . Tho rule limited tlie de
bute ou each bill to 10 miiiuioF. It was ex
plained that there were 405 bills on the calen
dar undisposvd of, and that it had been deemed
wik) to give the House an opportunity to act
upon them. Tho special order was adopted.
Whon Mr. Sayei's motion to concur in the
amendment to tho .Naval a; propriation bill,
reducing the number of biitlk'tsliips authorized
by the bill from four to two, came up it was
agreed that an hour should bo allowed on each
6ide for debute. Mr. Savers in support of his
motion, argued that the question presented
was purely a business one and bo appealed to
the Houso not to allow political matters to in
fluence its judgment.
After other speeches, tho vote was taken by
yeas and nays, and the Say ere motion was de
featedyeas SI ; nays. 141. On Mr. Bonteilo's
motion, the House requested :v further confer
cucc ol the Senate and then adjourned.
Wednesday, May G.
In the Senate, Mr. Cullom (111., R.) reported
progress iu tho conference of the two Houses
on the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial
appropriation bill, although many items were
yet open. The main featuic of the agreement
is on the salaries of United States District At
Mr. Hill took the lloor to continue his speech
en the bond resolution.
"Lot me ask the Senator," interposed Mr.
Pcffer, "if he will consent, to fixing a time for
a vote to-day."
" No agreement can be reached now," re
sponded Mr. Hill.
"Then," said Mr. Pcffer. "I give notice that
objection will ic mane to every other pro-
ceeding of the Senate until a voto is reached j
on this bond resolution, and alto that Senators
ivill bo asked to remain until a voters reached."
Mr. UiM took up considerable tituohy reading
personal things about Mr. Petticrcw.
Mr. "Gordon (Ga., I).) then Epoko in favor of
Lis amendment, that the bond inquiiy ho con
ducted ly tho Finance Committee instead of
a Fpecial committee. Jle said that of tho 33
Kcuators on the Finance Committee not one
of them was iu sympathy with the Secretary
of the Treasury, so that no undue favor wonld
be shown the Secretary. This unexpectedly
"brought tho Fjieeclios to a close and the voting
began. The first vote was on the motion made
some time time by Mr. Sherman to refer tho
bond resolution to the Finance Committee.
Tiic motion was lost.
The question was immediately put on tho
pending amendment, ofiVied ly Mr. Lodceand
repeated by Mr. Gordon, that the investiga
tion lc conducted by the Finance Committee
of the Senate, which whs adopted.

Tli 6 re were some mild protests from Mr. Erd
man I'a., D.)agiiiit the manner in which it
was proposed to rush through the bills, but
they were favorably acted upon at tho rate of
abont one every four or Ave minutes. In each
instance the report of the committee was read.
Mr. Hull Uown, It.) opposed n bill to pension
tbo widow of the Into Gun. Spencer, of Ala
bama, at tho rate of $75 per luttiin, on tho
ground that -Gen. Spf-iicet's services had not
been particularly distinguished ; that Mrs.
fipenrcr bad not married Gen. Spencer until
15 ycare after the war, and was now neither
old nor in distress. Tho rate of pension was
laid aeidc with a favorable recommendation.
The Senate bill to pciiMou the widow of tho
late fkcretnry Walter q. tirethatii at tho rate
of $100 per month oxcitcd more interest than
any other bill. Mr. Urowthor (Mo., 11.) moved
to reduce the rate of the proposed pension to
$T0 jior mon til.
Gou. Curtis (K.Y., 11), Mr. Cannon (III., 11.),
anfl Mr. Evans (IU.. K.) vrnrmly advocated the
bill as roported, and it wns passed.
JMIIs were also passed to pension Elizabeth

C. Parrolt at tho me of $50 per month; tho

that authority be uiven to summon
witnesses and adni'iiistor oaths, and that tho
committpo lie authorized to sit during the re
cess of f'oncrcss. The resolution was referred.
Mr. Dubois (Idaho. IJ.) created a temporary
flurry on the bond question by asking imme
diate consideiation for a joint resolution pro
viding that hereafter no bonds shall bo issued
by :iny officer until tho President I1.13 com
municated to Coi;gres tho necessity for the
bonds and the amount of the testic, nnd until

Mr. Sherman suggested that this involved
an important change of law, and the resolu
tion, thcrcfoic, should go to the Finance Com

tion. Ilotitino matters occupied tho remainder of
Monday. May 11.
In the Senate, the principal matter of inter

tor Faulkner from the joint committee which
has been investigating the disa-ter that oc
cuned at the old Ford Theater building in

juries sustained by 10.1 persons the amounts
ranging from $50 to $5,000. the latter sum be
ing recommended iu cases where total disability
was occasioned. Senator Faulkner offered an
amendment to the Urgency Deficiency hill
covering the amounts to bo paid.

Here is a story loUl nte by Jamas F. L3on,
of the Jst Cav., who had 110 superior in val

quarter of a pound of lead, says a writer in
the Chicago 'J'imeA-IUrald.
"We had in our company ayonng German
named Schultz. His h.io w;is his especial
jnidc. Somotiiiics fieliultz vent to sleep
without rations, but his horse never. "When
the Atlanta campaign opened, in May, 1604,
there -was not a prouder soldier or a prettier
horse than Schultzand Frank iirihe 1 i.sl.
"Ourllrst light of note in that campaign
was at Yarnell's Station, ilay !). .SomelKidy

little brigade, the Second of the First Cav
alry Division, consisting of the 2d and 4th
ud. and 1st "Wis., commanded by Col. 0. 11.
J.a Grange, was thrown against Gen. Joe
"Wheeler's entire command, and we fought it
all day. ,Yc stalled to charge, but wcro
halted in a piece of woods and were ordered
to fight on foot. AVe were nlreadv iindt-r
fire and in considerable confusion, and only
a portion of the command Jienii! the order,
so it happened that some of us fought as
cavalry and sonic as infantry.
''.Schnltz remained mounted and did he
roic service. Early in the fight his pet was
shot. As the animal made but little fuss
over it and steadied down quickly, his rider
Hi -tight it w;is only a slight -wound, ami
remained in the battle all day, having (rav
eled many miles in the performance of im
portant and dangerous tasks, the -wounded
animal seemiii" io enter into the spirit of
the wnk as completely as his master. That
night at 0 o'clock the brigade camped. The
moment Frank was unsaddled he lay down.
Schnltz thought it was because the horse,
like himself, was tired, and after palling
him and telling him in lioth languages what
a splendid fellow he had been that day, and
thanking him for carrying him safely through
one of the hottest battles, he husied himself
"In the forage hag were several extra ears
of con:. Alter his own repast Schultz shelled
the coin and took it to Frank. The horse
did not -welcome him as usual. Frank w:is
dead and stiffening, showing that soon after
tying down life had departed.
" When Schullz realized that his pet was
dead he threw the corn down, dropped by
the side of the animal, tenderly laid one
liand on his neck and with the other gently
rubbed his head, as he had done many times
before, and sobbed like a child. In talking
about his loss next day he said : ' My poor
Frank couldn't tell me he was badly hurt
and ask to go to the hospilal, as I would
have done had I been shot. He carried me
all day as if he thought it was his dutv, and
that things would go wrong if he didn't, and
when the battle was over and I was getfing
supicr he lay down and died. That horse
was a better soldier than I am than any
man in the regime::t. Sol one of us would
have fought all day with such a hurt as that.
No one would have expected it of us ; yet I
expected it of Frank, and he did not fail
me. 1 shall never think as much of any
thing again as long as I live.' "With this
outburst tho poor fellow broke down again,
and none of bis comrades made light ol the
young German's sorrow ; they knew it was

A WAR REMINISCENCE, -
6nes at Hatcher's Creek and Petersburg EecalleJ,
John B. Scace Speaks to a Reporter of Stirring Scenes Es
caped, -with a Slight Wound, but, Like Other Vet
erans, has Suffered Since A Story that Reads
Like a Page from History.
From the Journal, Albany 7f. Y.
"When ono encounters in print the life
story of sorao scarred veteran of tbo civil
war, n feeling of admiration and sympathy
is tho certain rcsnlt. Accustomed though
wo are to tales of heroism nnd suffering iu
everyday life, there is something peculiarly
attractive about theso old war records, serv
ing, .13 they do, as a sacred passport to the
heart of every truo American. Thousands
found their rest on tho field of carnage or in
tho hospital, but their comrade?, when the
strugplo wns over and the victory won, re
turned to their homes and began auew the
battlo of life.
John B. Scnce, tho widely known contrac
tor nnd building mover of Albany, N. Y.,
has had an unusually interesting life, nnd
when seen by a reporter recently nt his
homo, No. 15 Bradford Street, told of his
many experiences and adventures while
serving under the old flag in the late war.
Although having endured all the hardships
nnd privations of life in the ranks, Mr. Scace
bears his more than half a century of years
with an elastic step and a keen mind, taking
an active intcrestin privateand pnblic'attair.s.
"While still a boy, his family moved from
Albany, bis birthplace, to Ptttsfield, Mass.,
and here he was educated. Jfe mastered
tho carpenter's trade, became a member of
Berkshire Lodge, No. 52, I. O. O. F., and
was entering upon a succesfnl business life
when came the call from "Washington for
men. All over the country the word sped,
and excitement ran high. All tho old-time
patriotism that had made Massachusetts
famou3 in Revolutionary days was fired to
its utmost. Every town and village sent
ont its f-qund or company.
The company in which Mr. Scace enlisted
in September of 1802, us a private, becume

common impression that tho war would be

listed for nine months onlv. Scarcely were
they uniformed and armed before they were
r ordered to the front. 11. e reinicnt. which
at the time was under the foiiiui.iml of Col.
"W. F. Bartlett, served in the First Brigade,
First Division, .Nineteenth Corps, and par
ticipated iu some of the hottest battles of
the j$rent rebellion.
Mr. Scace, nt the time, "was but 22
years of nge, nnd he remembers well -with
what n beating heart he first fell in line.
His regiment was ordered South, directly
through the enemy's country, with Baton
Rouge as the objective point. After several
montiw of weary marches, during which
Co. A pnssed through some lively scriei
mages with the enemy constantly hovering
abont the flanks and lear, the Capital City
of Louisiana was reached. An evacuation
followed. Citizens nnd the rebel soldiery
stationed in the city fled like frightened
sheep, bearing -with them what goods they
could carry and setting torch to the rest.
The beautiful Capitol building, which bad
been converted into a war prison, had also
been fired, and the boys in bine swarmed in
just iu time to save their captive comrades
from perishing in the llauics. Sir. Scace,
who had been, while en route, promoted to
Corporal, was in the thickest of the melee,
nnd describes the scenes in a graphic man
ner. Although the cry had alien almost
without, a blow piven or received, n light
was not far off, for word was received that a
large forca of the enemy was last approaching.
A bloody battle ensued at Plain Store, a
few iayn' march ont of the Capital, in -which
Corporal Scace was severely wounded. A
niinic-ball struck his left thigh, and, grazing
the bone, narrowly ni?sed the great arlery.
He was retire.! to the camp at Baton Rongr,
but recuperated so rapidly that he entered
soon after again into active service. Tho
battles of Port Hudson aud Donaldson villo
followed, with all their thrilling episode?.
It was not long after thL, that, by reason
of the expiration of his term of enlistment,
Iteforms I'mmiHcil Cuba.
The speech of the Queen liegent of Spain be- '1
foro tho Chambers, Monday was largely do
votud to the present rebellion -in Cubii. Tho
Queen declares that Spain ha3 fulfilled beyond
measure the promises she made to the Cubans
after tbo first rebellion, and "tbo announce
mctitof other ruforms had, far from restrain
ing tbo secessionists, givou them impulse to
resort to arms with tho clear inteutron of pre
venting the application of liberal reforms."
The Queon refers to tho statement of tho
Cubans that they cave no significance to prom
ises of reforms so long as tho Sovereignty of
Spain was to remain, nnd she spoke with es
pecial stress on tho anuouncomoiitof the rebels
that thoy will destroy the prospect of Cuba by
pillage unless independence) is secured. The
speech takes .the position that the substitution
of independence for tbo Spanish rulo would be
a step backward by Cuba iu tho ranks of civil

ho was honorably discharged. ITi3 respite
was not a long one, however, for he soon af
terward re-enlisted, to serve for the remain
der of the war. For meritorious action he
had been raised to tho Sergeant's strip's,
ami as such served in Co. A, Sixty-first Regi
ment, Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry,
under Col. Charles F. "Walcott. During the
term of his re-enlistment, Sergeant Scace
participated in some of the hottest struggles
of tho war. Many a gray-haired veteran
to-rlay recalls the scenes of Hatcher's .Run,
the fall of retersbnrg, and the battle of
After his honorable discharge, June 4,
1SG5, Mr. Scnco returned to Albany and
settled down once again to his business and
social interests. He lias resided in the city
ever since. It wonld seem that now. of all
limes, his peace and happiness would have
been uninterrupted. Such wasnot to be tho
case, for fonr years ago, while engaged in
superintending the raising of the immense
Hmokestack of tho Albany Electric power
house, the lever of a loosened windla?s struck
him a heavy blow across the back. The
effect of the blow W03 not at first apparent,
he being able to leave his bed in a few days.
But the worst was to follow, for without
warning he wns seized with sciatic rhennin
tism in all its virulence. Untold agony fol
lowed. Said Mr. Scace : " 1" could not sleep for the
pain. No one will know the tortures the
j : ". . v
U rheumatism gave me. I don't know how
I lived during those day?. I became little
moro thanj-kin and bones.and it seemed like
life didu't have anything but suffering in it.
Cures? I tried every so-called rhetlmatic
cure that was ever invented. I gave all of
them a good trial before I stopped taking
them. My friends and noighbors reenm
niendedremedy after remedy that theyheard
of, but my rheumatism went on just the
same. "Well, after I had almost had the life
tortured out of me. I came across a news
Daper account of Br. "WiiliamV Pink Pills,
aud I thought I might as well add another
name ou the list as not, so I ordered some of
"I tell yon, Twa3 glad in tho3e days to
hear of anything that could give me any
hope at all. Yes, I got them, and before I
had lal;cn two boxes that pain began to leave
me. Why, I conldrt't understand it. I
couldn't imagine Jilyself beinjc cured. But
before I bad taken a half-dozen of those
boxes I was cured. The suffering which had
made my life almost unbearable for so long
had disappeared. I was a new man.
"I began to get strong. I picked up in
flesh, and I went back to my business with
all the vigor and vim of a young man. I
think everyone who knows me will tell you
what it did for me. Pink Pills is the grand
est medicine ever discovend, and if my rec
ommendation will do it aDV cood I want
yon to use II. I hope others will hear of it
and bo benefited as 1 haTe been. Everycno
should hear of it. I can't 5ay too much for
them," Mr. Scace exclaimed enthusiastically
This is but one of the many cases in
which Pink Pills have taken auch a. benefi
cent part iri the history of humanity.
Air. beace is now enjoying the fruits of an
unusnally largo business, managed solely
by himself, and covering almost the entire
eastern portion of the State. Mr. Scaco is
also an ivory carver of marked ability, which
he follows solely for his onn pleasure.
Many little trinkets, carved by the light of
the camp-fire, attest liisskilliu this direction.
Far from being solicited to recommend
the curative which had taken such a load of
misery from his life, in his gratitude his
praise for ifc is uustin'ed and unceasing.
And from his own statements one may easily
see that when he doescea3e tosing its virtues,
it will be to answer the lait mastering in.
