It may or not lie a good omen for the
Senate, but the fact is, that onu of the
first bills to be presented to that body
will be one to make Ihoso who die pay
for their own funerals. Senator Piffer
has prepared the bill lo that cud, but said
iast night that all manner of absurd things
alwut the bill unauthorized by him had
been telegraphed over the country, and
which lie desired to have corrected.
lie recently made a request for the cost
of funerals of Congressional members for
nearly the past century, but circumstances
have blocked the Investigation, at least, so
far as the house Is concerned. It xvas
stated yesterday at lhe Capitol that Clerk
Kerr of the House, had commuulcated xvitli
Senator l'effer that ho could only furnish
the cost of burying Congressmen for the
past four years.
It is said that the reason for this is that
in past i ears I hese gre wsomc a ccou nts were
kept by various officers of the House, and
that the collection of data would be the
work of a life time. The secrets of the
House are therefore as safe as the private
funeral espenso accounts of the Montagues
aua capuiets. senator crrcr, when ask
ed about this, said that he had merely
received a litter yesterday morning from
the Clerk of lhe House.
COST OF OXE FUNEUAL.
It is deterraiuable from the records how
ever, that the average expense of laving
to rest a dead Congressman with his fore
fathers and mothers- is about $1,500, and
that there has been no variation from this
Jcffersonian sepulchral simplicity for the
last half century.
In the Senate It is different. The work
of having Senator Pcffer furnished wlUi
the information he desired fell to the genial
Col. Nixon, whom men of all parties love.
He Is the disbursing officer of the Senate
and has been tendered his place repeatedly
by Democratic and Hepubllcan administra
tions aliko for any number of years. The
data were obtained from the Senate Con
gressional library. Senator Pcffer said
that the figures had not yet been sent to
There will be, however, a great disap
pointment 'to those who had expected to
have discussed lu the Senate the amount
of wine bills, the cost of sashes, flowers,
carriages, and thecustomary suits of solemn
black which went to make up the features
of a well regulated funeral of one of the
conscript fathers when personally con
ducted by a Bet-ate committee. Senator

Pcffer said that the statements that he
Intend'tl -to exhume these details Xvas a
mistake. He Is dealing oaly with the gen
eral principal of expmse alt.iched to these
WHAT THE SENATOR MEANS.
Therefore his bill provides thatToiily in
loses of death right here at the Capital
shall the t-ennte superintend the ilitan..
Instead of a committee the liody Is to be
accompanied to Its last resting place by a
single attendant to lie designated by the
M'ltate, the expense lo fait where It belongs.
Senator Pfeffer is of the opinion that the
funerals as heretofore conducted are only
matters of custom, vxlikh can well tic dis
pensed with and that his bill provides n
certain manner in which the Senate can
discharge Its duty at least expense.
Another Senator who favors Mr. Pcffcr's
billsaid that the fashion of pourlugout wine
and iliaiiipagne and other xinous liquids
on funeral excursions was a relic of
Paganism. Libations or wine, he said,
have been out of date for sixteen hundred
jears. He thinks that one attendant can
Just as well keep a dead Senator from giv
ing away the proi-ecdings of a caucus as a
whole committee, eu route lo the cemetery.
He believes that Senator Fetfer's bill
will pass, but that, whenever a Senator
dies, the benate will simply make an appro
lirl.il Ion and so get around Its well-meant
HECAUSU SHE TAUGHT UAXCIXt;
"VouneLady Violently Denounced From
it Ca'mdcii Pulpit.
Camden, N. J., Nov. 25. Some of the
members or the Firijt,!!. E. Church are
deeply grieved over ttthat they say xx-as
an uncalled for denouncement of an es
timable joung woman 'by Iter. Dr. J. B.
Graw, paslor of the, church. Tim young
woman'h orrense cousisied of leaching her
joungcr sister and 'several of her girl
rrlcnds the art of dancng.
Miss Carrio Mead is one of the numbers
of the Uroadway Ms E. Church. A few
weeks ago her sister Edna, a girl firteen
years of age, asked Miss Carrie to teach
her and.ono or txvo tit her joung friends
to dance. Miss Mead consented, and the
lancing lesson began,. Last Sunday night
Miss Mead accompanied Mr. and Mrs.
Murray, the parents -of one of Hie Tounir
girls she is tiaclilug,' (o lhe First Church
and had the misfortune, of hearing her
self denounced in flaming language.
In the course of -a sermon directed against
the theater and dancing and, other terrible
evils. Rev. Br. Graw said he had heard
of a young lady xvho had formed a danc
ing class and was taking the pure nnd
Innocent children of the, Sunday-school and
teaching them the terrible thing. He
likened such a young lauy to the tiger wtiii
Its soft, smooth fur, and Its deadly claws
lurking beneath. Continuing this line the
preacher said: "If that young lady Is in
the congregation all I have to say is that
she is a tooll"
Miss Mead was so astounded that she
could scarcely sppeak after the meeting,
hut since then her brother, Alfred Mead;
has taken the matter up, and says JQr.

HORRIBLE FATE OF PERDUE
Details of the Lynching of the
Georgia Graduate of Yale.
Mob of Citizens. Xot Nitifled With
Grand Jury FltidiiiK, Mioot mid
.Mangle tlio Vrofc or.
Atlanta, Noy. 25. The latest news from
Moutit Vernon, where the lynching of Prof.
L.W. Perdue occurred, says there is n great
deal of excitement In the community. The
officers are loud In their determination to
run down the Ivnchers, but it is generally
believed they arc known, andonaccojiitof
their prominence will escaiie indictment by
the grand jury even it taught.
Advices received today glxe additional
details of the affair and moredefinltu in
formaUou concerning the parlies to It. As
previoisly stated, he xxas In jail charged
by Miss "Willie Grady with haviug been
criminally intimate with her. The grand
jury did uot find a true bill, presumably
beeauso the girl xvas not able to appear be
fore thera .
At 1 o'clock Saturday morning twci.ti
three while men. well armed, went to
Sheriff Mf-Greimr's and aroused him. sav
ing they had a negro they wanted to put
in jail. As the siieriff i-aroe out of his
house and started to the jail ho xvas oxer
powered, relieved of his pistol and kcxs
and carried to the Jail, lie was linked in
a cell while the mob xvuited upon 1'ror.
Whcu the foreman of the mob called
out for Perdue three loud and despairing
crlesof "murder'' weroheard.
Prof. Perdue was taken rrom the Jail nnd
dragged about two miles through the
xvoods. Some of the mob xvent back to
the Jail later and released Sheriff Mc
Gregor but forced him lo go home and
keep quiet, guarding hc house to see that
he did nothing to apprehend the lynchers.
Testerdnv liiornlnc the sheriff organized
a searching party. The victim or the mob
wns found In the woods with ghastly stabs
about the head, and his throat wascut rrom
ear to ear. Bullets had puncluredtho body
until Its Identification was almost impos
sible. Perdue was placed in the Mount Vernon
jail. The grand Jury at the last regular
term of court did not satisfy the friends of
the girl. Perdue said he could bring wit
nesses to prove the girl's general bad char
acter, but the mob did not give him an op
portunity. Prof. Ferdue's family believed In his in
nocence to tho lust. His wife is crushed.
The children are nil grown and uumnrrled.
They all stand well socially and have the
sympathy of everybody acquainted with
the shocking afralr. Prof. Perdno was a
