feature in our business. We have for many ye?rs past
been condut-tin* a larpe and successful shirt business,
but have been laboring uader the disadvantage of baT
iii^r them made off the premises. We have be^n so for
tunate as to secure the services of the most successful
and well-known shirt cutter, Mr. C. W. Hutchinson,
late with Mr. P. T. Hall, he having successfully fol
lowed the late Mr. John W. Amer and his Palmer sys
l tem of cutting. Mr. Hutchinson haa also had some
fifteen years' experience with some of the beat New
' York houses.
Mr. Hutchinson desires to inform his friends and the
rublic generally that he will appreciate any effort on
their part to forward his interests. Our shirts will now
be ?*ut and made on the premises, and we promise you
! more expediency and a better fit than ever before at
tained in this city in the shirt trade.
Hoping you will kindly bear us in mind and favor us
with your future orders we are.

THE ELECTION BILL.
It is Still to the Fore in the Sen
tin SPEECH MAKING GOES ON.
Senators Sherman and Morgan
Have a Little Bout.
MR. GEORGE AGAINST THE BILL
The Senate met at 10 a.m.. and although the
attendance was very far short of a quorum
no notice was taken of the fact, aud business
was proceeded with.
Mr. Mamlerson offered a resolution (which
was agreed to) directing the superintendent of
the rensus to report at the earliest possible
moment the population of the United States
according to the census of 1890 by congres
sional districts and counties.
The House amendment to Senate bill to
amend sections 529, 1530 and 1531 of the lie
vised Statutes (relating to the navy) were non
concurred in and a conference asked.
FLAGS FOB TOE CAPITOL.
The joint resolution heretofore introduced by
Mr. Hale, directing the architect of the Capitol
to cause to bo placed on the east and west
fronts of the main portion of the Capitol build
ing suitable flagstaffs, anil to have the Ameri
can flag float therefrom from sunrise to sunset
each day of the year, and appropriating $500
therefor, was taken up and passed.
MEANING OF THE ELECTION BILL.
Mr. Morgan asked the Vice President to lay
before the Senate the resolution heretofore
offered by him instructing the committee on
privileges and elections to report as to the con
tents and meaning of the election bill.
MR. SHERMAN'S POINT OF ORDrR.
Mr. Sherman made the point of order that
a resolution which had been offered in the
morning hour and has gone over without ac
tion at the close of the morning hour does not
come up as "unfinished business" in the morn
ing hour, but must go to the calendar and can
onlv be taken up on motian.
Mr. Morgan insisted that his resolution was
properly before the Senate and that Mr. Sher
man himself was ont of order. He informed
that Senator that he (Mr. Morgan) was on the
floor not by his permission, but as a represent
ative of the state of Alabama, and that the Sen
ator from Ohio could not put him oil the floor.
THE POINT OF ORDER SUSTAINED.
After further colloquy between the two Sen
ators in a somewhat irascible tone tho Vice
President sustained Mr. Sherman's, point of
order. He said: The chair finds that, although
there has been a variance of practice on this
question, the weight of the precedents has been
against the position taken by the Senator from
Alabama. The chair is of opinion that a reso
lution which has gone over one day ani has
been considered the following day and not dis
posed of (as in the case with this resolution)
should then go to the calendar, and can
only be taken up on motion or by unanimous
Mr. Morgan appealed from the ruling of the
cliair and expressed his desire to make some
Mr. Sherman?The appeal is not debatable.
THE CLOSURE TYRANNY.
Mr. Morgan?Yes, it is, and the attempt to
suppress debate is part of the closure tyranny.
It is something which I did not expect, but it
shows that a spirit pervades the minds of Sena
tors on the other side to choke down idl in
quiry into this bill, and even into what it con
The Vice President overruled Mr. Sherman's
point of order and decided that an appeal from
the decision of the chair was debatable.
LIKE 1TUNTIXQ A FOX.
Mr. Morgan went on to say that no Senator
could rise and state what the bill actually con
tained, and that *tlie attempt to keep track of
it in its present shape was like hunting a red
fox in the hills of Virginia. The bill was in
such an uncertain, indefinite, intangible form
that no amendment could be leveled at it. as no
one could tell whether an amendment would
improve it or harm it.
The morning hour expired while Mr. Morgan
was still occupying the floor and the matter
went over without action.
A BILL PASSED.
On motion of Mr. Evarts Senate bill to pro
vide American registers for the steamers
Montank and Mineolu was taken from the cal
endar. briefly discussed by Messrs. Vest and
Frye and passed.
KINO THEOLOGICAL HALL.
The conference report on the bill to incor
porate the King Theological Hall was present* d
and agreed to.
MR. OEOBOE AGAINST THE ELECTIONS BILL.
The Senate then resumed consideration of
tho elections bill and was addressed by Mr.
George. He alluded to the statement made
yostcrday by Mr.Hoar that there was not a line
or sentence in the bill that would correct the
alleged evils and wrongs growing out of the
new constitution of Mississippi; und said that,
nevertheless, the time of the Senate had been
largely occupied by republican Senators in tho
discussion of that concededly irrelevant ques
Mr. 8pooner said that he did not wish any
man to concede for him that a reference to the
Mississippi constitution was irrelevant. He
had htd occasion to refer to it, and he had
done so in support of his contention that there
was a continued purpose.
SUPPRESS THE NEGRO VOTE IN TJIE SOUTH.
Mr. George -And yet the Senator from Mas
sachusetts (Mr. Hoar) made the clear confes
sion yesterday that this bill in no section, in m>
sentence and in no line contained anv remedy
for the alleged wrong in the constitution of
Mississippi. And so 1 find tuyBelf on this last
day of the expiring year (twenty-flve years
after the firing of the last gun in the unfortu
nate civil strife) and when the time of the Sen
ate is pressed for a consideration of ilie public
business, compelled in defense of the motives
and actions of a sovereign state to occupy the
time of the Senate in this concededly irrelevant
DEFENDING HIS STATS.
Mi. George proceeded to review and to de
fend the conrse of the people of Mississippi in
the adoption of their new constitution and to
discuss in that connection the constitutions
and statutes of other states on the subject of
suffrage and of negroes.
IS THE NEGRO INCAPABLE OP SELF-GOVERNMENT?
In winding up this part of his argument Mr.
George said that he had thus gone through the
history of the legislation and the constitutional
provisions of northern and western states, not
with a view of charging their people with in
consistency, but with the view of
showing the judgment of the Ameri
can people that the negro race
was hteapable of self-government. This was
before the adoption of the fifteenth constitu
tional amendment had prohibited distinctions
on account of race. Mississippi, having a larger
proportion of negro population than any other
state, bavins 100,000 voters who are unable to
read and who are uninformed as to civil and
free institutions, had seen proper to call a con
vention to correct the evil, not of negro suf
frage per se, but of ignorant and debased suf
la Behalf ?C the Aqnellta.
A petition has been mailed from Florida to
the Deo rets ry of the Treasury asking the re
mission of the fine Imposed upon the captain of
the Spanish fishing schooner Aquelitaby the
United States authorities for fishing within a
marine league at the coast of Florida in viola
tion of law. The vessel is one of a large fleet
almost constantly engaged in unlawful
in American waters, a practice which has com
pletely destroyed Key west's export flab trade.

THE FAILURE PRECIPITATED B1 THE ISASILITT
Or CEEDITORS OF THE FIRM TO MEET THEIR
OBLIGATIONS?MR. BATEMAN COMES TO WASU
A special from New York to the Philadelphia
Press tarn-. The firm of Bateman A Co.,
bankers of No. 57 Broa?lwaT, mad# an align
ment today to John A. Carver of Shearman A
Sterling. Commodore Arthur Edgertou Bate
man, one of the members of the firm, also
made an individual assignment to the same gen
tle man snd the alignments will be filed in the
county clerk's office in the morning.
"The senior partner." said Mr. Charles E.
Coon, one of the firm, "has been ill for the last
eight months, and most of the time Commo
dore Bntoman has been in Europe. He has
not been able to attend to any business since
early in May last, and althouKh still ill. he has
recently returned home in order to gradually
liquidate his business. The assignment of the
' firm and also the senior member was precipi
tated by the failure of creditors upon whom
we relied to meet onr obligations. It is be
lieved thatoll of the creditors of the firm are
substantially secured, and will lose nothing.
A HAIT.W AT TO BLAMn.
It wag learned, though, that the disaster was
the direct result of the firm's investments in
the Atlantic and Danville Itiiilroad Company of
Virginia. This road waschartered in 1882 and the
mum line of 203 miles runs from Portsmouth.
Va.. to Danville, Va. With its branches there
are all told 282 miles of track. The bouded in- I
debtedness of the road is put down in Poor s |
Manual at *3,902.000 aud the stock indebted
ness at $4,990,000.
It is known that this company has been a
favorite one with Commodore Bateman for
several years. Associated with him in its de
velopment have been certain English capital
ists and their inability to squeeze through the
recent monev pressure and come to the sup
port of the firm has been the direct result of
the firm's collapse.
It is not known what the liabilities or aseeta
of the firm are, but there is scarcely a doubt
that they will run up to pretty good figures.
Bateman was reputed worth $2,500,000 three
venrs ago. Douglass Green, who eloped with
Sirs. McCrea of Chicago, was a former partner
and so was Col. W. W. Dudley of Indiana.
The members of the firm are Commodore
Arthur Edgerton Bate man, Chas. E. Coon, ex
assistant secretary of the treasury under Pres
ident Arthur, and Mr. Walter Watson, jr. This
firm was organized on February 26. 1890. Com
modore Bateman has been a member of the
exchange since September 20. 1882, and Mr.
Watson dates his membership from February
28. 1889. Commodore Bateman was seldom on
the floor, and since the present firm was formed
Mr. Watson has done the firm's business ou the
THE RAILROAD BURDEN. v
The Atlantic and Danville Railway Company
was chartered April 21. 1882. The main line
runs from Norfolk and Portsmouth. Va.. to
I-nwreneeville, a distance of ninety-five miles.
An extension of the main line from I.iwrence
ville to Danville is still under construction.
There are three branch lines, tho largest of
which U the Bellfleld branch, from Claremont.
Va., to Iiellfield, Va.. a distance of tiftv-tive
miles. The two other branches, the Nan?
mond river branch and the Hodge3 ferry
branch, are three and one-half miles and live
miles long, respectively, making the total
length of lines in operation 188J* miles.
For Civs year ending December 31. 1838. the
net eamtnV8 ?f ",e road were $96,847. The
last financial statement issued showed a capital
?tock of $3,170,000: funded debt. $2,336,000:
car trust notes outstanding. $28,665. making a
total of $5,734,665. The cost of the rond and
equipment was placed at $5,604,055. The Mer
cantile Trust Comjiany is the trustee of bonds
and registered stock.
MR. BATEMAN TOMES TO WASHINGTON.
According to the New York Sun there were
during the afternoon yesterday unhappy
rumors concerning the fiuancial condition of
the firm. Many visits were made to the oflice
in search of Commodore Bateman, or Mr.
Coon, or Mr. Watson for the purpose of ascer
taining the truth of the reports concerning the
firm, but they were all absent, and it was
learned last night that Commodore Bateman
and Mr. Coon spent the greater |.art of the day
closeted with their lawyers. Shearman A Ster
ling. 45 William street. Commodore Bateman
left for Washington last night, leaving his
family at his home. 3 5th avenue, and Mr. Coon
returned to his home at the Fifth Avenue Hotel
at 9 o'clock. There were many visitors waiting
to see him about the affairs of his firm. He
said that the firm had made an assignment to
John A. (Jarver of Shearman 4 Sterling, and
furthermore that Commodore Bateman had
made an individual assignment to the same
gentleman, and that these assignments would
be tiled in the county clerk's othce this morn
LIABILITIES AND ASSETS UNKNOWN.
It is not known what the liabilities or assets
of the firm are, but there is scarcely a doubt
that they will run up to pretty good figures. It
ia said that there are several preferred credi
tors named in the assignment of the firm, es
pecially Baldwin A Farnham, the Chicagocorre
spondeuts of the house.
There are several otherpreferred creditors, is
is understood, but it was the opinion last night
that thev are all fully secured. The firm, it is,
said, has few outstanding engagements ou the
?tock exchange, and this has been because of
the gradual liquidation directed by Commo
dore Bateman since his return to America from
his English and Mediterranean trip a mouth or
All that Mr. Coon would aay abont the Atlan
tic and Danville trouble waa that the firm had
been large investors in railroad securities
which were no} immediately marketable.
WELL KNOWN IN WALL STREET.
The firm hag been well known in Wall street
Commodore Bateman has been one of its moat
picturesque figures for half a dozen years and
Mr. Coon has been highlv regarded since he
retired from his place in Washington and was
known to the bankers ar.d brokers of Wall
street. Commodore Bateman was master's
mate in the navy and is a relative of Senator
John Sherman. On his retiring from the navy
be opened an office in Washington and started
business as a banker and broker with New York
connection. W ith him at that time was asso
ciated Col. Dudley. The Washington oflice is
in charge of Francis E. Trowbridge, formerly a
prominent member of the New York Stock Ex
INVESTMENTS IN WASHINGTON.
Commodore Bateman in the last few years
taa made Urge investments in Washington
property. He owned the famous yacht Meteor,
but sold her a year ago and bought the
schooner racht Coronet, then owned by B. B.
Bush, who raced the racht across the Atlantic
with the Dauntless and won hands down.
He is an exceedingly nervous man and has
suffered from nervous prostration for nearly
two vears. He made frequent trips in the
Meteor along the Atlantic coast, and two
months ago he returned from an extended tour
in the Coronet in European waters.
Three years ago be was reputed to be worth
$3,500,000. His stock transactions at that time
were important, and it is believed that he made
a great deal of money because of his belief in
the short side of the market.
Mr. Coon was one of the personal friends of
President Arthur. A life-size picture of the
ex-President adorns his private office and
underneath is written an expression at the
warm regards of the ex-President. When the
late Secretary Manning took up the reins in
the Treasury Department at Waahingtoa he
retained Mr. Coon as first aaaiatant aecreC
for nearly a year. Thia was a tribute to
Coon's financial acuaaen and also to his execu
