Praaloets fr Prlaers of War.
AVarhinoton, April 21. The bill
reported by Mr. Morrill Kns. from
the Committee on Invalid Pensions
to-day to pension, prisoners of war,
provides that all disabled prisoners of
war shall be granted pensions at the
rate fixed for similar disabilities in
honorably discharged soldiers where
the disability is presumed to be the
result of confinement in Southern
prisons. The committee estimate that
it will require Jl.iOO.OOO annually to
meet the addition it the pension lolls.
The bill also provides that persons
confined for more than thirty days in
Southern ir sons shall receive a per
diem of 12 for each day's con
finement, and it is estimated
.it will require an expenditure
of about J4,O00,0O0. From the best
obtainable information the committee
believes that about 2.",00l) ex-prisoners
are now living, but a large number of
these persons are already receiving
pensions. The argument in favor ol
the per diem payment for the period
of confinement adduced in the report
is that many of the prisoners were do
pr veil of the opportunity to re-enlist
and receive bounty therefor. They
were also out of the line of promotion,
and in addition sustained in many
owes losses of pereoval property
through confiscation by their captors.

Public Money to-day. A case in which
the name of a private soldier had been
restored to the pension rolls by Gen.
Dudley was laid before the committee.
This case, Gen. Black said in reply to
inquiries, was first brought to his at
tention after Senator Harrison's reso
lution of investigation was introduced
in the Senate, and was unknown to
him when he made his report charg
ing that the action of the oflice was
influenced by political motives. Sen

the Commissioner as to his opinion of
the sufficiency of .the rroof in the

that Commissioner Dudley had acted
from improper motives in this case,

E Washington, April 21. Among the

executive session to-day were the
nominations of Wm L. West of Ken
tucky, to be governor of Utah, by a
vote of 45 to 17 ; D C. Bradley to be
Collector of Internal Revenue forSouth
Carolina. The latter gave rise to con
siderable discussion, Bradley being
charged with moonshining predilec
tions. Mr. Edmunds is said to have
led the opposition to Bradley in per
son, but he had been favoiably re
ported by the Finance Committee and
was -confirmed, 27 to 16.
The Morrow t hlnene Bill.
Washington, April 21. The House
Committee on Foreign Relations
changed the Morrow Chinese bill to
conform to the bill introduced in the
Senate by Senator Fair, making the
limit of the time for the treaty to run
ten years instead of twenty. This ac
tion was taken, it is said, to hasten
legislation with an littln opposition as
possible, and this is the reason why
Senator Fair placed the ten-year limit
in his bill.
HCRUIBLfe CRUELTY.
A Tana Girl Killed by Starvation
and Hegleet.
Scbanton, Pa., Apiil 21. The trial
of John McAidrews and hie wife
on the cbaig of mnrder, in having
caused the dea'h cf a thirteen-year-old
girl named Mary Gaughan, who
had been intrusted to them some time
ago, is piog.-essing here. Frank
Gaughan, the girl's brother, agtd
eleven years, testified that she was
sent long distances on her bare feet in
frosty weather; was made to sleep on
the floor on a bed made of meal
bags, with no covering, and subsisted
entirely on mash. At no time since
last fall was she permitted to wear
shofsor stockings. On the Saturday
evening before she died, McAndrews
heated a poker until it was red and
rubbed it npon her teeth, saying that
if her ghoet returned to this world he
would be able to identify her. Frank
last saw bis sister in the morning of
her death. Ube waa lying on the
floor and had no clothing over her.
She asked him to lift her head npon a
pillow and to place the family dog
upon her. feet to kejp them warm.
The children of the house maltreated
her,and one day pnt a bit in her month
and chased her around the house.
McAndrewasid they might kill her
for all be cared. The Sunday before
she died, McAndrews removed Mary's
clothing, put her in a tub of water and
then beat her with a horsewhip. This
terrible story was corroborated by the
neighbors, and Coroner Dean, who ex
amined the body of the child imme
diately after her death, testified tbat

DELPHI! PHVsICUNS

fn aMirm Asaoolatloa.
Phili t.pbia, Pa., April 18. Two
sets of delegates will probably leave
this city for St. Louis to attend the
annual session of the American Medi
cal Association on Tuesday, May 4th,
to represent the Philadelphia County
Vedical Society. Both sets claim that
they hff i- ,ytn ifYi to represent the
e' , una each Sat the other
is wrong. The by-u f the Ameri
can 'A.un pro for the elec
tion of one delegate x i epresent each
ton members of the Slate and county
societies. As the Philadelphia society
has 4C0 members it is entitled to
forty-five delegates, and they have
been chosen and herein lies the ditti
culty. The history of this little differ
ence among the doctors of the city
dates back to the trouble that arose
over the International Medical
( ongress which accepted an invi
tation to meet at Washington in
1887, and there are two sides
to the controversy. As per the by
laws of the county society, a nominat
ing committee was appointed to nomi
nate the fortv-five delegates to the
American Association and to report
the names to the January meeting.
This was done, and at the next meet
ing it was supposed they would be
elected in the usual way." But they
were not. A new ticket was elected,
headed by the names of Dr. D Haves
Agnew and containing those of l)r.
James Tvson, Dr. J. B. Roberts, Dr.
Goodell, Dr. R. J. Lewis, Dr. S. AV.
Gross, Dr. Wm. Pepper, Dr. J. H.
Brinton, Dr. S. Weir Mitche 1 and
other prominent members of the so
ciety. Regarding the difficulty, a rep
resentative of the new-ticket faction
said to-day : "I do not see what use
there will be in the other set of dele
gates going to St. Louis. They have
not been elected delegates and have
no ere !entialn The ticket headed by
Dr. Agnew was fairly clotted by a
vote of 169 to 35 when the nominating
committee presented its report. The
election of the new ticket was simply
a refusal of the society to adopt the
committee's report. The committee
had simply packed the delegation to
carry out tlio pet aims and purposes
of a certain clique among the physi
cians to uphold the actions of the
small meeting of the association at
New Orleans. We did not pro; ose to
have the so: seof the society misrepre
sented in that way and went to work
to form a delegation that would prop
erly represent it. The vote showed
the sentiments of the meeting."

Columbus, Miss., April 21. Sam
Small arrived here last Sunday and
was accompanied by the Rev. Dr.
Maxwell, director of the song service.
Smt 11 has preached in the Methodist
Church three times a day to the
largest concourses of white people ever
seen in Columbus, and there are plain
indications of a great religious awak
ening here. Sam Jones arrived this
morning at 9 o'clock and at 10 o'clock
was preaching to 20U0 people. They
will remain until Monday morning.
There are great numbers of strangers
here, attracted by the revival. So
far Small is decidedly the more popu
lar of the two here, and his high
breeding and intelligence mark him
as a man incompirab'y superior to
Jones.

Philadelphia, Pa., April 21. The

it was decided tbi.t it would be impos

TOO 3IAW POSTMASTERS,
RESIGXATIOX OF WARDEN HAR
RIS OF THE PEMTENTI IRT.
Hew It Was Eronght About The
Compensation Paid Him by
the L'snees.
IsrscuL to tsi irriAL.I
Nashville, Tknk., April 21. Capt.
F. S. Harris, warden of the peniten-
tiary, to-day tendered his resignation
to Gov. Bate, to take effect May 1st.
The matter waa the result of compli
cations which arose several days ago,
but only to-day reached a climax. It
is provided by legislative enactment
that the salary of the warden shall le
$1500, and that if he receive from the
lessees any other compensation or
gratuity he shall be removed from
oflice. It now develoj that for
fourteen years all the wardens of
the penitentiary, including Mr. Harris,
have been regularly rect-i.i.ig this
prohibited extra compensation, and
that this sum aggregates over i 18,000.
This fact coming to the knowledge of
Superintendent of 1 r sons Uain, lie re
ported it to the Governor, who ordered
the prison inspectors, who are Treas
urer Thomas, Secretary of State Alli
son and Comptroller Pickard, to in
vestigate tlie charge, lliey did so and
the res ilt of their examination will
now become public.
COM ITROLLER 1'Il'KARD,
when interviewed, said that Superin
tendent Cain first made the charge
that Harris was wrongfully obtaining
money, and that Gov. Bate ordered
the prison inspectors to at once ex
amine into the matter. Thev did so,
and put the wi ne ses under oath.
Harris was first seen. He said that he
received the money as charged, but
got it as a loan. This arrangement
was made several years ago, but he
had closed up by note what ho had
received prior to the legislative in
vestigation. MB. M. F. ALLEN,
one of the lessee's, made afhdavil
that ever sineo the present lease f ys
tem had been inaugurated it was the
custom for the State to furnish pro
visions tor tne maintenance ol the
ward- n and family, and such custom
was adhered to until the present lease
began. Then the lessee', instead of
furnishing provisions made a monthly
allowance to the warden in money in
lieu of provisions This has been
puid to all wa-dens since
the beginning of the lease, as
tho boobs of the lessees will
show. Allen, who is book-keeper,
stated that Dr. Morrow had been giv
ing Harris about $100 per month and
that he understood tint Harris was
not to repay it. He paid a high tribute)
to the character of Capt. Harris and
said he was certain ho had not bi;en
bribed or improperly influenced by
the lessees. Mr. Allen has been con
nected with the penitentiary for fifteen
years.
BR. WILLIAM MOHBOW
made affidavit that he is one of the
lessees. Ho bought out the interest
of the late W. II Cherry and is now
the principal lesse'e. In reply to eiues
tionshesaid: "My information from
my co-lessetes, who were the lessees
from the John C. Brown administra
tion, is that the warden was entitled
to or drew supplies from tho prison
and bought out in the city what ho
wanted and had the bills paid by the
lessees. Maj. O'Conner so stated
to me, and that during the
Matt. Brown administration as war
den the plan was changed so as to al
low the warden tlOO per month in
lieu of provisions. The amounts so
drawn are as f dlows: W. Ma t.
Brown, August, 1872, to December 31,
1874, 4ii,r)J; H. F Cummins, Feb
ruary, 187 to June 30, 1879, Jot! 8 110;
Lon Blizzard, April, 1878, to Feb
ruary, 1881, f 2233 ; Thomas
Walters, February, 1881, to
March, 1882, $2880; F. S Harris,
March, 1882, to April, 189(1, about
$2000. Tho whole aggregates over
$18,000, and extends over a peritd of
fourteen years. The actual amount
d awn by the same wardens exceeded
the $i00 per month agreed upon. Mr.
Morrow said that he and his associ
ates gave Mr. Harris this money, not
as a bribe, but in pursuance of cus
tom, and tbat he had not sought to
bribe Harris, either directly or indi
rectly, but tbat Harris had done as
the law bade him.
Comptroller Pickard said the books
of the lessees showed these payments
had been regularly made. The result
of the investigation was report d to
the Governor, and nothing was done
until a few days ago, when the Gov
ernor sent for Superintendent Cain
and asked h;m to report on
the matter. Ho did so this morning
in writing, corroborating the report
of the inspectors. About this timi Har
ris walked in and tendered his resig
nation, to take effect May 1st. Gov
ernor Bate left for Knoxville in the
afternoon, but wrote a note to Harris,
telling him his resignation would be
accepted.
The Comptroller said he was in
formed that Harris had receipts signed
last week from Morrow for all the1
money Morrow had given Harris. The
fact of the resignation of Warden Har
ris and the attendant circumstances
are not generally known. The high
personal character of the warden will
come to the rescue in this seemingly
wrongful act when the facts are openly
discussed.
Obla C rops.
Collmbi'S, O., April 21. The April
crop report of tbe State Board of Ag
riculture, based on returns from 985
townships, since April 15th, gives the
following estimates: Rye Area 91;
condition 92. Barley Area 83; con
dition 90. Peaches Per cent, of fruit
buds winter killed, 64. Condition of
live stock Horses 98, cat le 9 sheep
92, swine 95. Live stock is generally
healthy and in good condition, except
the hog cholera among swine, and
paper skin and general bad condition
of eheen are reported in a few coun
ties. Wheat is best this year in the
south half of the State, where it was
an almost entire failure last year. The
condition of wheat for the whole
State, June, 1885, was 51 per cent,
against 91 per cent, now, so far as re
ported. Other fruits besides peaches,
thus far, show good prospects.

alted mission of the profession and its
great responsibilities. He discussed
at length the duties and responsibili
ties of a physician to his patient, to
his professional brethren and to the
community in wh'i'h he resides.
On the first points he en
joined continuous, thoughtful, slow,
sure and persistent study and prepar
ation, that the responsibility of hold
ing in one's keeping the life of another
is iiueituiled by any other duty, and
carok'Hsne'ss in the discharge of said
duty is criuiimi'. A physician should
bestow every possible attention on his
patient and if tho case proves more
complicated than be can intelligently
treat, his duty is to call in the help of
others, even at tho sacrifice of a little
self-pride. These proper and faithful
attentions are sources of benefit to the
physician both intellectually and
morally. In their duties to each ottier
ho forcibly entered the observance
of a high standard of professional
courtesy and the cultivatiim ol f ieml
ship, justice, tolerance and gowd will,
and specially warne i them njrsAnst
jealousies as baneful and as de
tracting from their professional dignity,
and their duties to their communities
devolves the warning of the people of
all causes which gives rise to disease
and point out and enjoin all neces
sary sanitary measures. He recom
mended tho selection of some certain
and llxed plui'o for the an mil meet
ings of the association, and the grad
ual accumulation at said location of a
library and museum.
Reports of committees and ollicers
wero received.

After tbe reading a general discus
sion of the sul'jvct treated of ensued,

This discussion will follow the read
