was brought to tho surfaco again yesterday
by tho grunting of a divorce to

Tho deposit Jtnken from above tho long
bridge is found to be of the consistency
of putty, and when dumped
on the flats will not spread .of itself
over the surface of the ground. To
overcome this tho contractor may have to
erect a boiler and use hose, the water to be
forced by steam upon tho doposit, so as to
wash it over tho surface. For the reason
that the deposit is so consistent the contractor
recently met an obstacle in
of the cars he had built to dump the
loads. This has now been overcome

A. Title of Horror Tlwit is Almost
I'nupcrs Itolthcd of Their Clothing,
Started to Death and Hurled With,
otit Ceremony, After Which Comes
Boston, April 4. Tho testimony of Chas.
II. Dudley, before tho Legislative Committee,
fully corroborates tho charges made by
Governor Butler In his annual message.
Dudley said tho dead houso was robbed by
Assistant Superintendent Marsh. Dudley
also said that he saw a light in tho trunk
room several timc3 aftor tho inmates had
retired. Going in quietly ono night he
saw Marsh's wife open paupers' trunks
and take clothing from them. Mrs. Pope,
tho housekeeper, told him sho had
seen the same thing, and the mot
valuablo dresses were taken by Mrs.
Marsh to her private room and made over
for the Davis girls, her relatives. The
witness told of some twenty children who
used to cry at night because of hunger.
They wero placed at the table with the
other inmates and had to look out for
themselves. One night, outof curiosity, ho
went to the burying ground and saw four
bodies resurrected and drivon ofT toward
"ihk tte of the fond for the inmates of
the Alms House and insane was always
very poor and the quantity small. Tho
broad was sour nearly all the time. A man
who drove the hospital tenra told him ho
had taken up sixty-eight bodies in eight
The man was dissatisfied then, but the
next day ho showed " a fuw hundred,''
which he said Turn (Marsh) had given him.
Tlie witness was afterward appointed with
In- wife to the euro of tho female insane,
Tlie beds were of straw, in a rotten condition,
nud insufficient clothing. Mo.st of the
women were without underclothes or shoe
or stocking. They hud only calico diTse.
This was in July. The cells weio in a
filthy condition. In a cell in the attic he
found a woman on tho straw perfectly
naked, The straw was bad and filthy.
lie was told that this woman had been in
i hi cell a year. Shewnsvi intently in
iiiio she would tear li.-i clothes. She wo.
o near a .skeleton she unid not have
weighed more than torly paunch. Hi
wilo clothed her. and he hud the room
'leaned out. She had hud only one meal a
l.iy carried to her by an idiotic girl who
uid slie had always taken euro of the old
unman. He allowed her to continue doing
-o, hut found that she throw the food away
and enmo back with an empty pl.it c, telling
him the woman had eaten nil. He then
carried the food, and the assistant took it
into the room. In fivo or six weeks they
tiad her out of the cell and down into the
fitting room, so changed that her own
til lid did not know her. There was another
woman who told me sho had been kept
niuo days in one of tho lilthy basement
ells with nothing but water, and her story
vas corroborated by others. They said she
mis very violent and was kept tliero to reduce
her strength so thoy could manage
her. That woman was with us for a year
mid we never had occasion to use any such
remedies. The insane women wero employed
at all kinds of work, including the
1'iiro of patients who might be afflicted
with contagious disease. I spoke to
Marsh about it and his reply wits
that an insane pcrsou could not take a disease.
I told him our women wore so worked
their food was insufficient, and his reply
on at least three occasions was that thoy
.vcie brought there to die. Dr. Luthrop
used to como to the building about once a
week. One night after wc retired ono of
the thirty-seven women in ono of tho dormitories
fell out of bed and hurt herself.
I got my wife and went up. My wife soid
she wns blocding, and thought she was
dead. The blood was gushing out of her
mouth. I sent my wife for Dr. Lathrop.
She camo back and said that Dr. Lathrop
complained that he was tired, and it would
do no good for him to come. I went
and told him that 1 thought she was dead
from internal hemorrhago. Ho said he
could not do any good, and told me and my
wife to lay her out. Then ho said the
watchman and wife would do. I got them.
We found the woman dead, and wo took her
down stairs and laid her out in my room,
Next day no ono camo to seo about tho
body, and when I went to Dr. Lathrop, he
ald ho forgot all about it, but I could get
come inmates to help mo disposo of it."
Speaking of tho treatment of infants,
" At night they wero in charge of nn inmate.
Ono night I said to hor she didn't
seotn to havo so much trouble with tho babies,
as thoy seemed to bo quiet all night.
Sho said sho had found out a way to keep
thorn quiet, Sho took down a bottlo and
said that when they got troublcsomo sho
gavo them three or four drops of it and thoy
wero quiet all night. I nsked her what it
was, and she said she didn't know. It was
something tho day nurso used. I smollod
it and found it to bo morphine. Sho said
sho was put tliero for punishment, and was
dotorminedto make her work as easy as sho
could. I asked if sho knew tho power of
the stuff. Sho said sho know nothing, and
didn't caro. I told her it was liable to kill
porno of thorn. Out of the seventy-three
babies that wero born there and that wero
brought in during tho first yenr we were
there, only one was alive at tho end of tho
year a very peculiar child."
Tho Governor: " I should think ho wns."
Witness: "After they died, I used to see
a man, 'Tim,' with a small box under his
nrm going from tho house to tho dead
house. I think that wns what they carried
tho dead babies in. They never had any
eervico over tho dead during my term
there. A mnn, whoso expenses weic paid
by a benevolent lady,of Boston, and came
there as a sort of missionary, said to me
ono day: 'This is n very healthy place.
I have been hero about three
weeks, and you haven t had any deaths
hero?' I said: ' Yes, wo have,' for Iliad
known of moro than a dozen, lie said :
'That is strange. I am an ollicinl to tnkc
charge of funeral services.' 1 said: You
don't seem to ho in tho right places. II
you are really in earnest, and wish to
at a funeral, place yourself between
the houso and gate almost any night, and
you will have an opportunity that is, provided
they will wait for you.' " The testimony
was not stricken out on

YHJ POOR QUESTION.
flc nn liny' Decree A'ot no Ilnd After
New York, April 4. If the Western
papers arc not inaccurate in their statistics,
although the prohibition of American pork
in Germany on the ground of trichiuous
infection appears to be a very destructive
measure as regards the export of thot
commodity, it Is not in reality likely to
prove injurious to any great extent to the
interests of hog-raisers and
in this country. As published, the decree
comprises sides, bacon, ham, sausages and
the ileth of the animal in all forms of
preparation, but it is understood not to
lard, although a question may hereafter
ariso on that point, and Western
manufacturers should not congratulate
themselves too soon. If tho exception us
respects lard should provo correct, however,
the new legislation will not seriously
embarrass tho ordinary course of trade, for,
with tho oxception of that article, our direct
export to Germany of the products of
tho .slaughter and packing houso is not very
important. While, for illvstration, our total
shipment to foreign ta of bncon and
hams last year amounted to nearly $17,-
lOD.ODO, mid our shipment of salt pork to
ibout S7.000.000. Germany took the value
of les than half a million of dollars in the
three articles combined. In the nvitter of
lio .swine, tho German demand amounted
to less than the paltry sum of fivo bundled
dollars' th.it is, practically nothing; but,
in compensation for the small trade in live
took, moro than one-lift li of all the
turd exported from the United States
was consumed by the people from
oer tho llhiiic, whoso call lor the article
was reiri'entrd by SW.ViOO.OOO. If, then,
this commodity hus been excepted from the
proscription, our people can afford to laugh
at the decree in its present form, hs it will
inly lead to n larger demand tor American

The Socialists Will Xpt Militate With

Itaiilis of ttie Socialists to Destroy
Paris, April 4. Through nn unwonted
act of courtesy by a high polico official,
your correspondent was Inst evening enabled
to seo Louise Michel in tho prison of
St. Lazare, and to obtain some very decided
expressions of hor plans and purposes.
Tho correspondent k first asked
"What was your object in "remaining in
hiding in this city until la3t Friday night?
Was it that you wero afraid of arrest?"
" Afraid 1" exclaimed Louiso Michol, "I
am not afraid of anything that tho police
or their masters can do. My life is pledged
to the work, and whenever it is necessary
that it shall bo sacrificed, I am ready. But
I do not mean that it shall bo sacrificed in
vain. My friends have all along dissuaded
me from presenting myself, as I had intended
to long ago, because they said my
liberty was nccossary for the work of the
" What caused you to change your mind
and give yourself up to the police?"
" It was solely on account of my mother.
It was killing her to bo hounded from one
lodging to another; to bo dogged by spies
whenover sho sot foot in the street. There
wero many different spies, and they were
in many different kinds of dress, but there
were always spies and spies and spies. I
could not bear it, and I camo hero."
" It has been stated, and on high official
nuthority, that there is a very good understanding
between tho Socialist and at least
some sections of the Monarchists."
"It is as false ns all that tho Government
orators say. They are paid to lie about us,
and they earn thoir money woll. Let mo
toll you this, that tho red flag will never
accept tho white banner nor tho vice-stained
lilies for its nllies. Why, tho very
reason that the people of this brave Paris
havo not already swelled our ranks to hundreds
of thousands is because they hao
dotectcd in our demonstrations some Monarchists."
" How did they get thcro?"
"How? I can tell you that. They weio
not put there as our friends found them
there. Wo ie'ied to march with them.
They wen) put there by some of our enemies.
How can I tell by which ones. But
this I know: they were put there to discredit
" If you are acquitted of the charge on
which you mo now held, what will you do
"Then I will leave France and preach
tho social crii.iide from abroad. I do not
see why Prince .should huVthc monopoly
of conspiring against the (!o eminent t'lom
" Then you regard you work as a conspiracy
agniiijt the established order of
"Certainly 1 do. and that conspiracy is
legitimate. It i a conspiracy of tho oppressed
against their oppressors. Belieie
me, the detiuie triumph of the cause I
serve is but a iiiestiou of a few mouths. I
might almost say of days. The economical
crisis which is drawing near will shake
the old tricolor world with Mich
force that it will fall, and over its ruins

VikI the ;mmI Ucncnii Trot Out tho

Cincinnati, 0., April 4. The influonce3
which originally brought tho Commercial
and Gazette into such strange fellowship
hac not, from surface indications, continued
to exert a soothing spell over tho
foi tunes of the consolidated concern. Thcro
has not been that enthusiastic extension of
financial support from the admirers of tho
old Gazette which the managers fondly
hoped, or deceived themselves into believing,
would bo poured into tho
coffers of tho consolidated
tatives of Republicanism on the one hand,
j and the personal organ of tho Field Marshal
on the other extreme. For some
son the merging process has not seemed to
impress the friends and pntrons of the old
I Gazatto favorably, and the result has been
not one filled with financial blessing.
The latest rumor, and ono that is seem-'
ingly in accordance with preconceivod
1 opinions regarding the eventual termina
tion of this newspaper mixture, has it that
Riohard Smith is sadly grieved over
the position in which he now finds himself
and the property which ho represented in
the good will of tho Gazette, and that ho
will endeavor to sever his connection with
tho consolidated concern, and attempt to
revive the Gazette. Ho has been urged to
do this, it is said, by prominent Republicans
in all parts of the State, and letters
and personal visits insisting upon such a
step are encouragingly numerous. Ho is,
moreover, inclined to ounsider such suggestions
from the fact that ho and Mr. Hal-stead
cannot or do not dwell in harmony
and peace. Mr. Smith is ostensibly tho
business manager, and uatuially
seeks to retain home of the old and
trusted attachei of tho Gazctto
in appointing his business aids; but
the abrupt dismissal of such men by Hal-stead
without explanation or consultation
with the Deacon I1113 stirred tho Gazetto
blood of tho latter into turbulent streams
"of wrathful gore. Romeo Reed and tho
two Kids will go with the Deacon in tho
event of carrying out tho revival of tho

Washington, April 4. Judgo W. C.
Orcsham, of Iudinna, was to-day appointed
Postmaster General. Tho appointment
of Orcsham creates goncral surprise
Tho general comments are that Gres-ham
will make ns capable an officer as any
man not acquainted with the place, but
that tho appointment is not a strong one,
politically. Indiana was already cared for
with John C New in a prominent place,
and Ohio needed recognition from a
standpoint moro than any othor State.
Some doubt is expressed whethor Gresham
will accept, as ho already holds tho position
of District Judgo, which is a life position,
with $4,000 a year.
