President Cleveland was overruled by
the house today In the matter of vetoes
of two pension bills. They were for the
benellt of Rachel Pat ton and Caroline
Mowatt, widows of soldiers who had
leniarrled and lost their second hus
bands. The bills were vetoed on the
ground that their passage would estab
lish a dangerous precedent. Mr. Sullo

the bills asserted that the president

well established. The bill to pension

CAREER OF JOHN D. LONG.
Biographical Sketch of the Nct Sec
retary of the Navy.
John D. Long, of Massachusetts, who
hus accepted the secretaryship of the
navy under McKInley, was born in
Buckfleld, Me., October 27, 1SSS, nnif
went tbroim-h the village school so fast
that at 11" he was sent away from home
to continue his studies in Hebron acad
emy, and at 11 was at the gates of
Harvard university. He was admitted,
and, in spite of heavy "conditions,"
never dropped below fourth In his
class, and through his senior year stood
He was the poet of his class, and
wrote many college songs for special oc
casions. When he graduated in 1S57
he had the honor of writing th'e class
ode. His lyric bent was continued In
Inter life. One of his volumes was. en
titled "Bites of a Cherry." He did not
dream then that some day he would
have a cabinet position. He translated
Virgil's Aeneld with a touch that won
praises from men who were ready to
have found fault with It.
At 1!) he stepped into the world, but
not to go back to Buckfleld. For two
years he taught school In Westford,
Mass., and with the money he saved,
took the Harvard law course, He was
admitted to the bar in 1S61.
He had visions of a practice in his
native town and opened an olllce there
at once. In all the time he waited and
hoped there came to him but one soli
tary fee, 25 cents. The disappointment
was not without its balance, however,
for while there he got his first taste of
politics, as delegate to the Republican
state convention In 1SC2. Ho sought a
broader field at once. With such dis
couragement as Buckfleld gave him
there was little choice but to go. En
tering the olllce of Stlllman B. Allen, in
Boston, ho' was, in time, admitted to
partnership, a firm which continued for
seventeen years. He retired in 1S76. be
cause he had been elected governor of
His political rise dated from early In
the '70s. In 1S72 he was nn active Gree
ley orator; in 1873 was elected to the
legislature from Hlngham. where he
had made his residence, and In 187C was
re-elected, returning to become speaker.
For the two succeeding years he was
almost unanimously elected speaker,
being also in both of those years a
candidate for governor In both Republi
can State conventions. Ho failed to
win first place on the ticket, but was
nominated lieutenant governor on the
successful ticket. Ho defeated Henry
Ij. Pierce in the convention of 1879, anil
was elected governor by a majority of
more than 13.000 over Butler. The ro
nomlnatlon was given by acclamation,
thero being no competitor.
Harvard conferred LL-, D, upon him
In 1&S2, and in that year he was named
to deliver the 100th Fourth of July ora
tion In Boston. He re.tired from tho
executive chair In 1SS3, but was elected
to the Forty-eight congress and twice
re-elected, His notable effort as a con
gressman was his speech on the whisky
In 188-1 ho was a delegate to the Re
publican convention. He hoped to be
elected to fill Senator Dawes's vacant
chair, niul In hls.defpat, It Is paid, was
the greatest blow In his political life.
He retired and becnino senior partner In
tho'law firm of Long & Hemenway.

time In May, 18'Jfl, at Scranton. Be
fore this time he had made two ship
ments to the Phoenix company.
"Did you uver sell the Phoenix com

Sunbury Tron company anything?"
Witness snld he didn't take the $2,
500 note offered him by the Phoenix

account from the company about J1.S00
In all. Witness' attorney buught up

Phoenix company al auction in New
York city. Mr. Palmer a3ked witness
whether if he had taken the "hecto
graph" notes offered him by defend
ants and also the agricultural Imple

him now. This question was objected
to by the defense.
Witness said that In conversation
with Spencer at the time he met him
In Scranton, the latter assured witness
that the Phoenix company was "all
right," and that Aubrey was "perfect
ly honest." Aubrey was to come to
New York with me, but Spencer and
he went In a room and when they came
out Spencer said ho didn't see his way
clear to let Aubrey go.
Witness said that at that time Au
brey said he was going to leave the
Phoenix company on account of re
ceiving only a small salary, and enter
the commission business. "I told him
that for all the goods he would sell for
me I would give him a commission."
"Then you had confidence that Au
brey was an honest man?" usked Pal
mer. "I trusted him partly."
"Would you at that time just as soon
have a. thier work for you as an hon
est man?" tartly asked Mr. Palmer.
Witness did not directly answer this
Mr. Palmer showed witness a postal
card sent by Koons to Spencer on Oc
tober 20, ISOfi, asking the latter to give
prices on spikes, etc. Witness admit
ted he sent the solicitation to Mr. Spen
cer to quote prices on the goods."
"When you solicited Mr. Spencer's
trade at this time didn't yru ri'unrd
him as an honest man?"
"No, sir, I did not."
"But still you wanted to do business
"1 wanted the goods from him and
intended to pay him for them."
The witness. In answer to a question
of Mr. Palmer, admitted that the postul
was written after witness had Spencer
nnd Aubrey arrested on the charge of
SOLD BELOW MARKET PRICE.
Fred F. Turner, of this city, testified
that he knew Spencer for eight or nine
years and knew Aubrey for one year.
Did business for the Phoenix Contract
company In this city.
"I went to Scranton at the time the
Phoenix company was organized," said
Mr. Turner. "In conversation with Mr.
Spencer he told me that the company
was going to sell goods below their
market value In order to secure money
to pay notes which Spencer had given
In New York. 1 went to New York and
sold 1,000 kegs of nails for the Phoenix
company to a broker James A. Par
rell. They were sold for $2 'base.' The
next day I sold two cars of cast lion
water pipe to the Spring Brook Water
company, Wilkes-Barre, at $10 a gross
ton. At the same time I sold the Ply
mouth Water company four cars of
pipe at the same price per ton. The
sales were below the ruling market
price. I also sold Phelps, Straw ft Co.,
through George Lewis, 2,000 kegs of
nails. The next transaction was the
sale of a carload of cut nails to C.
Morgans' Sons for 'i 'base.' After that
I sold live cars or sixty-five tons of cast
iron water pipe to Ward Davenport, of
the Plymouth Water company, for $19
a gross ton. This was below the ruling
market price as was also the sale of iho
nails, A carload of soiled pipe was
(shipped here by Koons & Co. to the
P.hoenlx company which turned It over
to me. I sold It to several flcras In this
city. The aggregate amount was nine
tuns and I sold it at fifteen per cent,
less than tfie- market price, on the
average. A carload of 217 kegs of nails
which Mr. Spencer had Informed mo
was refused by Mr. Farroll, of New
York, were sent to me at this city,
within a month after they reached here
1 shipped the nails to the Phoenix Con
tract company, Scranton, All these
sales were for cash under Mr. Aubrey's
Mr. Turner also testified that Spen
cer and Aubrey told him they had put
$3,000 in bank at Scranton In order to
secure rating with the Bradstreet
agency, and that after this had been
accomplished it was to be taken out.
Witness stated that when he made the
above named transactions his conver
satlons.were with both Spencer and Au
brey. AVltness testified that when he asked
Aubrey for settlement the latter told
him that ho (Aubrey) had to pay a
largo debt of Spencer's and could not
pay Turner all the commission due him.
"What did Spencer or Aubrey say
about the true character of the Phoe
nix Contract company?" asked Mr.
"Aubrey told mo at the Jermyn hotel
that Koons, of Audenrledr had put
Plnkerton detectives on the company's
trail. Aubrey told me that ' In a case
of this kind It Is everybody for his own
skin.' " He requested that I say noth
ing about the conversation anil I did
not. I did not have anything to do
with the concern after that."
"Did you have any other conversation
with Aubrey as to who got the Phoenix
Contract company up?"
"In my first conversation with Spen
cer and Aubrey, Spencer stated that he
had put Aubrey In as secretary and
George X,evls, of Kingston, of the
firm of Phelps, Straw & Co., this city,

Stomach troubles are so common and In
