.the'report. As heretofore, the hottest fire
was directed atj< tho Mann amendment and
tho hlgh-llcensQ section, but a great many
collateral mattors were brought In to

Exactly at 10:30 o'clock" tho clerk called

further consideration of the conference
report-on' the general revenue bill, and
Mr. Duke, of Albemarle, took tho floor
to speak against tho report.
Ho devoted some time to th.e alleged

A MEMBER DISSENTS
Mr. Stonrnes. of tho Finance Commit?
tee, spoke briefly against the conference
report. He did not believe that th. dis?
tilleries should bo fostered at the expense
of tlio bar-rooms. He opposed tho club
jlcen/HJj?sectlon, and that increasing the
licori/?? on city and town bar-keepers.
?Mr. ''Stiearncs opposed tho reduction of
tho insurance tax, and tho plan for tax?
ing franchises, and in conclusion declared
that ho would vote against the-.confer?
Ho was followed by Mr. Settle, who
spoko against tho report and especially
against the Mann bill.:amendmont, Ho
contended that tho quostlon wap a moral
one and should not bo mixed up with
tho finances ot tho Btato, Mr. Settle
charged that tho morals I of the country
peoplo wero bobig looked after, and thpso
of tho city neglected, \, Ho rapped tho
committee for allowing tlio distilleries to
..run and for closing up the bar-rooms,
when the people had not demanded any
?ucu one-sided arrangement, and ho
closed with an earnest appeal to the House
to sond tho bill back to conference.
KELl-EY TO Til 13 FRONT.
Mr., Kolley, of Richmond city, spoke
?arfcostly against the roport of tho com?
mittee and 'contended strongly^ that it
?should go back to conference.
Ho said there had beon seventy changos
in conference, and that tho Senate Com?
mittee had yielded only throe or four
points, and he rldloulod tho Houso Com?
mittee for hiving drawn an Imperfect
hill, and doclarod that ho had lost much
of his confidence In the ability of those
' ntlomen. This brought Messrs. Jon
_. ngs, Bowman and othor members of the
committee to their foot to defend .the
notion ot the conferees, and thoy engaged
ln some good-natured cross-firing with
Mr. Kelloy then wont aftor the Mann
bill, and declared that In this amendment
lay his chief opposition to the revenue
measure, He charged that It was a pro?
hibition "rider" nnd had no placo in a
tnx measure. The law, as it stood at
present, furnished the peoplo with all the
remedy they nooded to got rid of liquor
In tho rural districts, and there was but
little, |f any, real demand for a sweeping
"Yon are attempting here," declared
the speaker, "tp do Indirectly what you
have not tho courage to come out nnd
do directly, and that Is why 1 shall vote
ngalnst tho roport," Mr. Kelloy paid
pomo attention to the Jobbing trade, which
|io deolared would be Injured by the p?s
f?iiBe of .tho bill, and he olosod with t\
strong apponi for tho return of the moas
?iro to another conference committee.

The announcement of tho vote created
great enthusiasm, nnd It was some time
bofore tho chair could restore order. '
Mr. Allen raised the point that,.the
adoption of tho report required fifty-one
affirmative votes, and he spoke at some
length In support of his contention.
Mr. Caton spoke on the same.line, and
Mr. Boaz contended that only forty votes
wore required to adopt a conference re?

When the bill appropriating $lf0 to pay

canary birds had figured In the items

Me disclaimed any Intimation that such

Mr. Wickham took the floor to advocate

was In a vein of pleasantry and devoid
of any significance or Importance.

HE NEVER. BLAlMED TUB BOOZE.
He took a botilo up to bed,
Drank whiskey hot each night,
Drunk oooktalls In the morning,
But never could get tight.
Ho shlverod in the ovenlng,
And alwaye had tho blues,
Dntll ho took a bowl or two?
But he nover blamed thq boozo.
His Joints wore full of rhoumatlz,
His appetita, was elnck
Ho had pains between hie shoulders,
Chills ran down his back.
He suffered with insomnia,
At night he couldn't snooze;
He' said It was tho ollmato,
But he never blamed the boozo.
His constitution was run down?
At least that's what he said;
His logs' wore ewelled each morning,
And ho often had swelled head.
Ho tackled beer, wine, whiskey,
And If they didn't fuso,
He blamed It to dyspepsla
But he never blamed tho boozo.
He said bo couldn't sleep at nights,
-And.alwaye had bad dreams;
Ho claimed he always laid awake
Till early sunrise |beams; s
He thought it-,was malaria,
"Alas! 'twas but a ruse, ?
He blamed It on overythlng
But he never blamed tho booze...
His liver needed scraping,
And his kidneys had the gout;
'? He swallowed lots of bitters,
Till at hist he cleaned them out.
His legs wore swelled with dropsy,
Till he had to cut his shoos;
He blamed It to the doctors
But ho never blamed the booze,
Then he had the tremens,
And tackled rats and snakes;
First he hnd tho fover,
Then he had the shakes.
At last he had a funcr,al> .. aa )?

And the epitaph they carved for him

OF BROTHERHOOD MEN
The attendance was so large at the
Wednesday down-town services that are
being held under the 'auspices of St. An?
drew's Brotherhood that a number of the
business men who dropped In a few
minutes later than 1 o'clock P. M. were
Obliged to stand up.
' There.?'wero "eighty-one present. By
the time to-day's services open, how-,
ever, there will have been added seats
enough for over 100, and more will bo

Hones, of the Brotherhood.
The Rev. XV. E. Evans, rector of Mon?
umental Church, led the services yester?
day. Ho took his text from the kind
words of Jesus to the woman whom he
met at the well, and pleaded with his
hearers to tulke every such cnsual oppor?
tunity for speaking pleasantly to thoso
with whom we come In contact, whether
high or 'humble, good or bad, because
we can never know how much cheer we
can give or how much good we can do
In the simplest intercourse and courtesies
of everyday. The man In touch with G'od
'through tho Influence of Christ, he ex?
plained, must be filled with thepractlcal
sympathies that must express themselves
in good deeds and kind words.
The earnest little meetings,, and quiet,
manly talks from gentlemen of tho cloth
so well equipped for addressing the crit?
ical mon of affairs who attend them, are
being very much enjoyed by. those who
