A court-muitinl to inquire into
tho conduct of Lieutenant P. J.
Worlioh of tho United Slates ship
Philadelphia was hold at Maro
Island on Docombor 23d. Bays
the S. F. Call. Tho court was
composed of Captain H. C. Coch
rnno of the United Stites Marino
CorpB, judge advocate; mombers
of the court, Captain T. F. Kano
of tho Monterey, Lieutenant T S.
Pholps of tho Philadelphia, Liou
tenant J. B. Milton of tho Mon
terey, Lieutenant C. Fox of tho
Philadelphia, Lieutenant W. E.
Wilnor of tho Philadelphia, Lieu
tenant F. E. Groen of tho Ranger,
Lioutonant W. R. Rooney of the
Monterey and ono other officer of
The Philadelphia arrived from
Pugot Sound ports at an early
hour on December 21st. It did
not lake tho news of tho lioute
uant's diflgraco long to spread, and
soon half of tho water front was
nwuro of tho fact. The sailors
sided with thoir officer and hoped
he would bo exonerated by tho
board. Tho broach of dfsoiphne
wag a flagrant ono, howevor, and
tho other officers said fhnt Admi
ral Beardsloy was thoroughly in
dignant over the matter. At Port
Townwond, Tacoma, Seuttlo and
Olympiu, Worlioh was leprimnnd
ed, but it did not do him any
good apparently, as his final full
onrao later on.
It appears that while tho Phi
ladelphia was at beattle, Liouto
nunt Worlioh was given u ton
days' leavo of absonco. He had
a jolly time ashore, and the night
beforo ho was to report for duty
his friends gave him u dinner.
The lieutenant looked upon the
wine when it was red and ha fell.
Ho drunk heavily all night and in
the morning tripd to braco up on
oooktaiJT Tho eyperimont was n
disastrous ono, as it mado him
worse than evor. When he readi
ed the warship ho was in no con
dition to go on duty, but ho mado
tho nttompt and in consequence
was arrested und charged with
being "drunk while on duty.1'
Lieutenant-Commander R. R.
lngorsoll was very loth to talk
about tho unfortunate affair. As
to tho merits of tho case ho would
say nothing but hopod that
"Werlich might bo exonerated.
Ho doniotl omphntically a story
to tho effect that tho lieutonaut
had had a woman aboard tho
cruiser at improper hours.
"Lioutonant "Werlich had lady
visitors on recoptiou days, just
tho samo as the other officers,"
siad tho commander, "but his
conduct on thnso occasions was
always thst of an olficor und a
gentleman. There is only ono
ohargo against Worlioh uud that
was his failing."
Lieutenant P. J. Worlioh is
about 36 yoars of ago and graduat
ed from tho Auuapolis Naval
Academy in 1871. Sevoral yoars
moo ho was married to Miss Mac-
Coney of Washington, 1). 0., aud
when ho was ordered to this coast
his wifo followed him. Mrs.
Worlioh has just undergone u
severo surgical operation and the
nows of her husband's troubles
will come as a faovere shook to
hor. Werlich is not confined to
his room, bat ho remains there
from choice and will boo no one.
Ho is n very handsome man and
an idonl-looking officer.
At the oourtmurtial Lieutenant
Werlich made no defeuso, simply
ploading guilty. Tho sentonco of
tho court waB forwarded to Ad-
mirul Boardrtleo for approval nnd
by him to the Secretary of tho
Navy, but thuponulty inilictul is
unknown. Strong eiforts nro being

The llouso today responded to tho
appeal of tho President by passing
a tuifl'bill, tho operation of which
is limited to two and a half years
and which is designed to raiso

Tho voto today wus on party
lines, with two excoptions. Tbo
Republicans all voted for tho bill,
excopt Ilurtmau of Montana,
who did not voto, and the Demo

Newlnnds (Pop.) of Ncvuda, who
votod in favor of the moasoro
Tho special ordor under ,wbich
tho bill uus brought to a voto at
5 o'clock, after thieo nnd one-half
hours of debate, was ironclad in
its charnctor and compelled tho
members to adopt or lejoct it with
out an opportunity of offering
amendments of any kind. Al
though theio was tho brilliant
spoeoh puking that usually ac
companies u field day in' tho
House, tho debate lacked much of
the spirit and vim which general
ly characterizes a partisan bill in
tho lowor branch of Congress.

sides. The Republicans contend

Treasury was revenue to bupply

measuro was a Republican pro
tection bill. It was, they claimed,
an omergoucv revonuo bill on
protection lines. It was signifi
cant that sovoial notably
Mr. Dalzoll, Mr. Payno, Mr.
Hopkins and Mr. Grosvonor
predicted tho passage of a genuino
protective moasuro ns soon as tho
Republicans gained control of the
White Houso. Tho Domoorats
took tbo position that thoro was
no lack of revenuo in tho Treasu
ry, and that tho passing of a bill
to increase taxation would in no
wise help tho situation, nor fur
nish tho roliof desired by the
President and Societary of tho
Tho bill passed today repeals

of the McKinloy rates on wool
