POSTAL DELEGATES' TOUR
It Will Not Be to the Music of
the Marine Band.
ORGANIZED LABOR OBJECTED
3Ir. Iloosevelt Ordered tlie Scarlet-
' Coated Gentlemen to Discourse
Sweet, iiut-ic at the Lecture, But
Soon Found That in Doing bo He
Vns Doing "Wrong.
The management of the Universal Postal
CongrCfcS has rtm Into one more washout.
It has'become tangled up with the Marine
Band and organized labor. The commit
tee of arrangements for the Pictorial Con
tinental Transit, to be given by Post
office Inspector John P Clum at the New
National Theater on Monday night, for the
entertainment of the Postal Congress, de
bired to have the Marine Band play during
the show. This committee waited on At,
Blttant Secretary Roosevelt and made itb
request. "Certainly," said Mr. Roose
velt. He Issued an order that the hand
should attend the lecture
Organised labor heard of this. H also
heard, that although the members of the
Postal Congress, President, Cabinet, and
Justices of the Supreme Court were invited
guests, yet the general public was expected
to pay the usual price for admittance to
the show. Then organized labor re
minded the Navy Department that it had
been agreed that the .Marine Band was
not to be ordered out in aid of any Invest
ment enterprise. Then the Navy Depart
ment recollected that this was so. Yes
terday Assistant Secretary Roosevelt re
Yoked the order he had Issued, and last
night It appeared that the Marine Band
would not play, though efforts are being
made by the managers of the Postal Con
gress lecture to have the second action of
llr. Roosevelt undone.
All the invitations 6ent to the delegates
have been accepted, and the whole con
gress will unbend its dignity, dress itself
In swell clothes, with necklaces, ribbons
and swords, a"nd give the people of Wash
ington a chance to look it over. Many of
the delegates will be accompanied by their
ladies. The diplomatic corps will also at
tend and the private boxes will be occu
pied by President McKinley and the mem
bers of the Cabinet The committee of
arrangements Is endeavoring to make this
a very swell affair and It is .said at the
rostofrtrcDepurtmentthatlnbpecUrClum,
who is to be the hero of the occasion, has
consented to wear a white collar and a
pair of cuffs.
The route of the lecture will be from

Wonders of the New Big Teles" jpa
at Yerkes Observatory.
Williams Bay, Wis., May 22. President
Harper and Trof. Barnard, of theChliMgo
University, tested the new telescope at
the Yerkes Observatory last night. Prof.
Barnard says: "This insttument collects
25 pei cent more light than the Lick
telescope, and this means a great deal,
as it allows us to penetrate one-fouilh
farther into space.
"The telescope will show the world much
that is new concerning the asteroids, the
little worlds between Mars and Jupiter,
and the science of astronomy will be en
riched bj Its discovery of many of the
secrets of the double stars. Wc can prom
ise more accuiute measurements of dis
tances to the fixed stars."

PPIII THE M M TEL
House Republicans Against the
Senate Amendment.
SECRET CONFERENCE" HELD
Messrs. Dolliver, Corliss, Tawuoy
iinrt Other, Put on War Paint and
Propobe to Rent HouseH for the
Summer-Mr. Diugley Temporizing-Where
Thlfeu-Schedale Hurts.
"Well, gentlemen, w might as well rent
houses for the summer;" was a inopoition
which was assented fo by a number of
Republicans who met Ja1 secret ec-nclnvcln
a committee mom of the Capitol un Thurs
day afternoon. It wasfonly a new way cf
saying that they intended to light It out
all summer, the subject of the conference
being the tax on tea imposed by the Senate
At this conference were Mr. Dolliver,
Mr. Dingley, Mr. Tawney, Mr. Coiliss and
some others. Two of these present had
been telegraphed to lor 'ti.e puiposes of
the meeting.
It has been felt by Republicans ever
since the reporting o"f the-. tariK bill bj
the Senate committed that a serious
blunder was made when tea was taken
from the free list It was argued at the
the time the bill was being prepared under
the supervision of Mr Dingley that the
placing of a tax on this article would
be directly in opposition,- in the main,
to the theory of protection, that Is, of
home industries. It was argued then,
as It is now, that tea is- not a produc-t
of the United Statesand that there was
no detriment to any home industry by
keeping it on the -free list. The levying
of a tax on it, it was said, was an ad
vantage to be taken of every class of
people lu the United States, and es
pecially tgainet the poorer class, and that
the effect of it would be, politically, very
serious on the Republican party Mr
Dingley hud reported a bill which he
thought would raisesufficicnt revenue, and
yet a 10 per cent tax was laid on tea,
the most unpopular levy that could have
been made.
The object of this conference was to dis
cuss this tax on tea. It resulted In the
determination of all. present, including
some of the most representative Repub
licans, to fight the tac when it camu back
to the House. One exprcs!on of opinion
which was indorsed was that such a tariff
snoukl not go through, even at the cost of
the whole tariff bill,
Mr. Dingley, of course, did not express
himself so radically, but he is opposed to
the tax He was rather In favor of tem
porizing and defeating the obnoxious sched
ule by reason, and In conference, than in
pro-cipitatlng a fight in the House. He
understands the danger of the situation
considering the aid to be expectrd from
the solid Dcmocratfc opposition , and knows
that the indefenslbllltv of the tax -nill
cause a greate-r defection among the Re-1
puDiicanstnaa is represented by those who
attended this conference.
Mr. 'Dolliver was called upon by a re
porter of The Times at the Hamilton yes
terday afternoon and an attempt was mode
to get from him the plans of the opposition
in general terms. Mr. Dolliver declined to
be interviewed, although he was told of the
reports which ha leaked dntrfromthls con
ference. All he would sa5"r however, was
significant. He said thaj; there had not
been a tax oh" tea. filnce the war lndleatii:r
very plainly -what he thought should be the j

TEN GIRLS OH A BIG LARK
They Took an Impromptu Ride iu a
Stonecutter's Wagon.
One of the X.nssie Played Jehu
uud the Colored Driver Thought
It a. Great JoUe.
A luncheon was given to ten lively youmj
girls on Wednesday afternoon In a certain
ied brick dwelling on ; Eleventh btreet
ju-t above?C, northwest. It waspresuiuafjly
a success, judging ircm the satlcfied and
Jubilant appearance of the girls when
they rubhed out ou the irocti.oiLu, giving
tlie house a maikcd resemblance to a le
uiale seminary There wcie all sorts, the
tall, the shoit, the lean, the stout, and a
chariuiig picture thej made, giouped in
an affectionate schoolgiil manner, each
munching abalineorolive.
All vrent well until theze anived on the
scene a stonecutter's wagon, drawn by
a handsome .specimen of horseflesh, driven
by a riegio man. The wagon drew up m
front of a 1 oute a few doors above the
teinale seminary, and the dusky driver
weut beiow to bee Mary Jane. The girls
made a -wild rush for the deeerted con
veyance. There was a pause and a little ' argu
fication' between them, when suddenly a
tall, dignified young lady, diesscdin black,
mounted the diiver's box, and, with feet
swinging in the air and a most businesh
iike manner, grasped the lines and shouted:
"All aboard "
Evpry girl mounted that wagon and with
numerous shrieks and hysterical shouts of
laughter clung to one another in tht-ir
efforts to retain their footing, as with a
pull at the reins the big grey stepped boldly
on with his load of human freight.
One slender young miss in bicycle attire
fell flat across the dusty wagon, but the
