Judge "William S. lloten Is seiiousJy ill

It was not at first thought that this acci

His condition has become very weak, and
it has been feared that he would not rally.
His regular physician, Dr. J. B. Burwell,
called in Dr. S.S. Adams for consultation
Another consultation was held yesterday
forenoon, and both physicians express
strong hopes of his ultimate recovery,
though they state that it will be alongand
tedious one. For a few moments yester
day morning, for the first time, he sat rp,
in Ids room.
J udge Holman Is a most active man, and
has rnrelv be2u sick. He Is very anxious
to begin work again. He has almost never
missed a roll call of the House while In
-WaMilugton, and has considered It very
nearly a religious duty to be present at 1J
o'clock ar the convening of Congress
At midnight- last night Mr. Holman was
reported to.be somewhat better.
CUAXK AT THE CAPITOL.
Wants to Settle the Tariff,
Get'- Locked Up.
"Isaac Newton Ashenfelt, that's who I
am, superintendent-elect of the United
States Senate, by the grace of the Eternal
and the authority of the Vice President .r
the United States, and no more questions
are necessary. I want to see Hon. Garret
A. Hobart of New Jersey," said a wild
eyed man with shaggy, unrouth beard, as
he approached Officer Pearson at the Cap
itol yesterday afternoon.
"Biit the Vice President is engaged at
present and you cannot bee iiirn,' said
"On. but I must,'' protested the stranger;
"I have a communication from him (ail
ing for my presence here. Some one is
needed to assume charge of the affairs of
the Senate at once, and I am the man.
The tarirtbiil must be passed, th'i duMes
must be prohibitory, the country must be
saved, and I am the man to do it Don't
Interfere, with me."
But the officer did interfere with him
and locked him up in the Sixth piecinct
station on the charge of Insanity.
Ashenfelt, while a typical hobo, is other
wise a freak. He has evidently been a
man of ability and learning. He claims to
have been a bookkeeper and designer with
the manufacturing firm of John Dolan &
Co., rtilladelptTia, which city is his home
Domestic difficulties and loss of em
ployment, he says, caused him to leave
his home two years ago.

president and his transac
tions: "Abraham White, icith remarkable fort
sight and penetrative poieers, secured awardi
of one million jive hundred thousand Gov
ernment Bonds at an amraye of 111 S-3 wfien
the public call for bidi was made and tia
United States Treasury sold $1W,QW,QQQ.
"The bonds icere promptly taken up and
paid for by Afr. While isUli money loaned
by llussell Suge on While's notes, and there
v:as a profit of $100,000 00. " Ac Ywh Usr
a"J. "There are remarkable features about tht
public sale of Government Bonds. Abraham
White bid and paid for $1,300,900, notwith
standing he had little capital at the time, and
the conditions and requirements of the United,
States Treasury Department rendered tha
financing of this large transaction peculiarly
difficult. The payments had to be made in
gold by the original bidders to whom awards
were made. Ao transfers icere permitted.
The Government ojficials took tAeir time
about delivering the bonds, vrhieh were cou
pon bonds payable to bearer. The bonds
were sent to the bidders several days after the
deposit of gold. Abraham White complied
icith all the conditioi3 of the call. White
borrowed the money from liussell Sage, tlie
noted financier. Wull Street admired tha
auducity and ingenuity of the first transac
tion it icas amazed at the stwnd. 4-'t -
for tetter registry fees anil postage was thi
original capital ineestzd brains, ability and
nerve did tlie resL Abraham lift-re is tlie
coming financier." A'ttc York World.
"Tn three transaction t last year Abraham
White handled five millions of bonds. His
Government Bond deal is tha talk of tia
financial world. When he picked up the big
block of Brooklyn City Bonds, two days after
the Presidential election last November, and
paid for them in one clieck. amounting to
nearly two viillions, the largest single check
ever received by the comptroller, the great
bond siindicatc houses icere duxed. Right on
top of this remarkable transaction. Abraham
White was awarded $1,500,000 Boston Bonds
and he again displayed that tcondsrful ability
and foresight so aiaractertetic of the man.
As an independent bond buyer he commands
a large following and trcmendovs backing 6j
shrewd men of millions. A'oic that he hat
ample capital, as well as courage and brains,
he is a poxcerfal faeior in the financial
world," New York Financial Beeord.
