VI ROIXil A'S MUSKRAT BILL.
An Effort lo Protect the Little Rodent
(From tho Richmond Dispatch.)
The people of the Eastern Shore
heartily endorse the bill of Delegate
S. W. Matthews intended Va prevent
the killing of muskrats during certain
months of the year, and Senator Le
C.lto knew he wa.-? doing the right
thing when, n-< chairman of lite Senate
committee, he made a favorable report
on the ninskrat bill. It created no sur?
prise here when it was announced in
Oho Richmond papers that the upland
member." of the general assembly had
endeavored to p dte fun w: tho bill ind
Indulge in good natured raillery at Del?
egate Matthews and Senntor Le Ca to.
The Dispatch correspondent was once
ns Ignorant of the delicious davor of
muskrat men as these upland repre?
sentatives now appear to b >; hut romc
llfteen years ago a kind friend In Onon
cock offered him some muskrat that
had been cau'gh.t and cooked at the
home of the Inte George R. Dennis, for?
merly a I'niled S:ites Senator from
Maryland, and from that day to this the
aforementioned correspondent has been
a dear lover of mtw?krat, properly pre?
pared and cooked. Senator Dennis, who
i was himself an Elstern Shoreman; and
: owned a line estate on the Pocbmnkc
: river. ? a high authority on things
j good to < at. and it Is known Ihatl he put
; few things it" any. above murkrnt. An

digging some of these wily little ani?
mals out of their hobs on the banks

summarily turned out of the church
Nunieroii.ii other authorities and in?
stances could be cited to prove that
Delegate Matthews and Senator Lo
Cato are right In protecting the musk
rat from exitfrmlnatloh, and that the
upland members ae wrong in trying to
' ridicule a measure fraught with sol
: much Interest t-> the epicures of the;
Eastern Shore and other tidewater re
gions of Virginia.
A gentleman who has just arrived I

and properly prepared during the

to Richmond for the upland members
to eat, hoping thus convert them
from the error of their way of think?

Opponents of Hanna Insist That He Will

tive estimates to-night place the legis?
lative vote at 76 to 70 against Hanna.
The workers of the Senator claim 71
votes ami assurances of tho necessary
two additional votes and possibly four
more. The opposition Insists that Han?
na will never have 70 votes on Joint bal?
lot, ami that they have gained two
votes since ttio legislature 'adjourned
over until Monday. 'Before the chair?
manships and preferred places and
oidler patronage are disposed of, the
opposition say that Hanna's vote will
be reduced considerably below 70, which
Is now at least three short of enough
The opposition to Hanna consists of
the sixty-live Democratic members and
of the following ten Republican mem?
bers: Representatives Harry C. Mason,
and Sit; l'\ Braihloy, or Cnyahoga;
J. P. Jones, or Stark; John B. Griffith,
of Union; J. C. Otis, or Hamilton: Win.
O. Scot'i, or Fulton: Henry H. Redkey.
of Highlands; D. O. Ttulan, or Carroll
and Harrison; .lamm Manuel or Mont?
gomery .and Senator Vernon II. Burke,
Included In the ll?t of those support?
ing Hanna are Representatives Droste
and Dine, silver Republican furt?nlsts
from Cincinnati, who are counted for
Jepthll Gerrard. The developments to
d'.ay indicated tihat Oer.ard would not
only be voted for on the ballots for
Senator, but that he might lead on the
first ballot if the present efrorts are sue
cissful to make him the free silver He
publican candidate. Gerrard Is one of
the wealthiest men in Cincinnati and
has alwayo been a radical sliver man.
Representatives James Joice. or
Guernsey, win* Is Included In the 70
votes claimed for Hanna. Is considered
as doubtful. The llmina men claim
that Jones, of Stark: Redkey. of High?
land; Itukin, or Carroll, and Harrison
and Manuel, or Montgomery, who are
on the list or the Opposition, are doubt?
The combine workers were aggressive
until the past day -or two. when they
not only had enough votes to defeat
Hanna but hail also reached cull tho
doubtful members, The opposition Is
now on the defensive in keeping Its
majority in line. The contest has set?
tled down to a siege In which the oppo?
sition holds the fort and the Hanna
men are charging oh the breastworks.
'It is conceded that the opposition Is
well organized and drilled and also des?
perate in this fight. Elver since Kurtz
was retired as State chairman by Han?
na at the State convention at Toledo
last June, efforts have been made -to
retire Hanna and there will be a fight
to a finish on that issue.
The talk abou t Sena tor Burke being
in the doubtful list lias about subsid?
ed. He was slated for president pro
tern of the Senate by the opposition.
As he was not present on Monday to
qualify, Senator Thaddens Ei Crumley.
Democrat, was elected pro .tern. It
transpires that Senator Crumley wrote
out his resignation before his election,
nnd il is in the hands of Senator Fink,
the leader of the Democrat side. When?
ever Senator Burke is ready Senator
Fink will present the resignation of
Crumley os president pro tern and
Burke will get the place.
So far the opposition to Hanna Is not
only holding its men well In line, but
it has executed nil the plans, provided
for previous to the causes, on last Sat?
urday. The opposition managers say
ihey are having- no trouble to hold
their men out against Hnnna, but ad?
mit t.helr trouble In finding any candi?
date for whom the bolting Republicans
ami the Democratic members will vote.
The bolting Republicans are unanimous
In declaring they cannot vote for any
Democrat for Senator. Enough Demo?
cratic members to give the managers
trouble and anxiety say they do not
want to vote for a Republican for
Tin- solicitude 'if the combine on this
issue is shown in the following editorial
leader in this evening's Issue of the
Democratic Press, the organ or the
combined opposition to Senalor Hanna:
"The Democratic members or the
legislature now have it in their power
io defeat M. A. Hanna for the Senate
and the blame for a. failure to do it will
rest with them. They can make no sat?
isfactory explanation if they fail.
Stupidity in such an emergency as the
present Is Intolerable as guilt.
"F.vory Republican vote against Box
well for Speaker was cast to show un?
faltering opposition to Hanna. and has
no oilier moaning whatever. If so. the
overthrow of Hanna can be accomplish?
ed by the same Union of Bryan Demo?
crats and Foraker Republicans that de?
feated Box well and elected Ma son :
Speaker. How can this be brought
"Of course Hanna cannot be elected
so long as every Democrat, and For
ukor Republican Is in his seat and re?
fuses to vole ror him. But If any of
them remain away when the vote is
being taken he may be elected (or so
declared) by less than a majority of all
the members elected to the Assembly.
To guard against this chance let every
Democratic, member be present when
the ballots for Senator nre taken.
"But tills is not oil. Bet them all
vote for the same candidate In opposi?
tion to Hanha nnd let .this candidate
be one for whom every Foraker Repub?
lican can vote. This will not. only de?
feat Hanna's election, but It will In?
sure the election of nnothcr. A failure
of the Democrats and Foraker Republi?
cans to agree is exactly tlie opportunity
"Bet no Democratic member of the
Legislature suppose that a time will
ever arise during Die s:ssion when a
Democratic candidate for the Senate
run be elected. No Foraker Republi?
can can be induced to read himself out
of his party and thereby Justify the
charge of traitor nnd deserter that Is
I even now being made by the Hanna
"But as these Foraker Republicans
stand ready now to unite with the
Bryan Democrats to agree upon a Re?
publican other than Mark Hnnna, let
no Democratic member hesitate.
"Let the fusion bo as complete be
twecn (til who oppose Hanno. 0? It woo
In opposition -to Boxwell, so that Hanna
can bo defcutcd and some opponent
clecte/i on the first ballot. This Is the
only sure method to out-general Hanna.
"It Is hot only Idle, but It Is folly to
talk about electing a Democratic Sena?
tor, or casting complimentary votes for
popular Democrats. No man worthy
to be Senator in tlie Democratic party
In Ohio desires In this crisis to receive
a complimentary vote from any Demo?
cratic members of the Legislature. On
the contrnry, any man In the Demo?
cratic parly wlio permits a complimen?
tary vote to be cast for him will de?
serve the censure of the next Demo?
cratic State convention for his misera?
ble and selfish ambition.
"The Democrat who refuses to agree
upon any honorable Republican the
Foraker members unanimously propose
will In effect be oastlng half at least
the weight and Influence of his vote for
"The Democrat wliose vote would
elect Henna's opponent will be n friend
of Hanna If he refuses to cast it."
A call was Issued to-night by the Re?
publican State Executive Committee for
a mass convention of Republicans, to be
held in this city next Monday afternoon
to protest against the attempt to de?
feat Senntor Hanna.
A report was current .to-night that
a telegram hud been received by the
Democratic leaders from John H. Mc?
Lean, requesting that his name be kept
out of the Senatorial matter and urg?
ing the Democrats to agree upon a
candidate for Senator to defeat Mr.
Hanna. While there was no positive
con Urination of this story, there were
development which led to tho belief
that it contained some truth.
Hon. Henry H. Redkey, representa?

to-day for Senator Hanna. He has

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY.
A Report of a Conversation as to When
It Really Will Begin.
"Say, w'hen does the twentieth cen?
tury begin?" asked the freckled boy.
who was tipped 'back against the wall
smoking a Ions clear.
The dentist, the veterinary student,
and "Doc" Home looked up when the
question was asked, and then glanced
at one another Inquiringly.
"Don't you know?" nsked the dent?
"No, T heard two fellows arguln' about
lt. T wonder Which was right?"
"It begins In three years now," said
the dent'lst. "It begins In 1300."
"What day In 1900?"
"Why, the first day, of course?the
1st of January."
"That's what one of the fellow said
that was makin' 1'he talk."
"Well, it's right. In't H?"
"I don't know. I just asked."
"I don't see how there could be any
question ?bout It," said the dentist.
"Well, I have figured, of course, that
tho ?twentieth century will begin in 1000.
That's the year of the French expo?
sition. Isn't It?"
"The twentieth century begins ns soon
ns we start to use l'JOO, 'instead of 1S00,"
said the student. f
"That's It," said the dentist.
"Well, I'd like to chance a little some?
thing that you're wrong," said the
freckled -l/oy. "I'm not 'positive, but
I'm willing to risk a little money that
you're both wrong."
"Is It a trick?" asked the dentist.
"Trick? Certainly not. I just ask you
the question. 'When does the twentieth
century begin?what day?' You say it's
January 1st. 1900. Well. I offer to bet
a small amount that you're wrong."
"T don't see why I'm wrong."
"Well, if you're so sure, vftiy don't
you bet ?"
"It's the nineteenth century up to
midnight of December .'list, 1R99, and
then at midnight we begin t'0 count

"I'll bet you a dollar I am right."
"Make it two."
"I'll take the other dollar." said the
veterinary student, excitedly.
'The freckled boy searched his pock
eis nnd brought out a silver dollar, three
quarters, two dimes and a nickel. The
dentist produced two half dollars, and
gave them : . the student in exchange
for a ?2 bill.
"You hold the money, 'Doc,'" said
the dentist, handing him th- bill. "Now,
who will yon leave it to?"
"I'll leave it to 'Doc.' here. If he'll
take five minutes to flguro on it." said
the freckled bay, dropping his coins
into "Doc's" hand.
"I'm willing." said the dentist with
a smile of confidence.
"It's hardly fair that T should act."
Eald "Doe." "I have already expressed
"You needn't decide the bet till you've
had lime to think over the business,"!
said .be freckled boy. -Then you'll rind
that tlie twentieth century begins or
January 1st. 1901."
"Yes. he will," said the dentist, de?
"Certainly, he will. What's goln' to
be the last year in the- nineteenth cen?
"Is that so? I say it's 1900."
"How do you make that out?"
"S'poso yon start to count n. hun?
dred. Are you through when you've
counted ninety-nine, huh?"
"Oh, that's not the same a: all. Here!"
The dentist went too writing table nnd
picked up a piece of paper. He drew h
line and made rough cross marks on
It. '.'Suppose we want to count up to
a hundred, by years. At the end of 9S
we come to sn, and at the end of 99 we

ing heavily nnd looking nt the floor.
"Tlie question Is somewhat puzzling at
first, but I'm Inclined .to think that
your young friend Is right."
Stop a minute ami think. 'Doe', "
said the dentist earnestly. "He's trying
to count 101 years for every century."
'Doc." reached for the paper and be?
gan to make some diagrams on his own
"New, gentlemen, the simple method
by which id arrive at a conclusion is
to go back to the day which begins
the nineteenth century or the eigh?
teenth century, or any other century ex
cept the flrsit. But wo cannot <4rH .to
agree aa ito the day upon which. the.
first day of the first month of the year
I. You will admit that?" .
The dentist jseemed ito ,be puzzled.
"I suppose so," he said.
The freckled boy grinned confidently
and shifted the cigar In his mouth. -As
for the veterinary etudent, he was at?
tempting to follow "Doc's" line of ar?
gument, but he waa evidently In great

Christian era began on -the first day of

The first century did not end until the
100th year had been completed. It con?
sisted of 100 full years. It ended at
midnight on December 31 In the year
100. The second century began within
an Infinitesimal period of time after
midnight on the morning of January 1
in the year 101. The first day of the
mind, let me ask you .the date upon
which the first century ended."
"It ended January 1, in the year 100,"
said the dentist.
"Impossible! You would have the
first century Include only ninety-nine
years. A century consists of 100 years.
The first century would not end until
the 100th year had been completed."
"How's that?" asked tho dentist.
"I say a century consists of 100 years,
second century was January 1, 101, and
the first day of the twentieth centutry,
I am compelled to say, will be January
"We have come to believe that the
year 1900 will usher In the next century',
and I was one of that opinion myself
when asked the question, but now I
perceive that we will be living in tho
nineteenth century until January 1,
1901. I shall have to decide that you

sat staring at him with an expression
of mingled bewilderment and disgust.
The freckled boy learnd 'back and
"I'll bo darned If I understand it
yet." said the student.
"Here!" exclaimed "Doc." "We've
got nineteen centuries?100 years each.
How many years does that make?"
"And after tho 1900th year is up wo
start on the next century, and the first
day of that century is -the 1st of Jan?
"I suppose that's right," said tho
student, despondently, "but you know
mighty well that everybody figures on
1900 being the twentieth century."
"They ought to know 'better." said
the freckled boy. "Talk about your
cinches! I heard two Hoard of Trade
