THE ALLEGED BRIBERY.
The wasof the trusts and combines are
verj de ious, but once in a while their hire
lings slip a cog. Tho story from the Capitol
which we print this morning ot an alleged
attempt at bribing two United States Senators
is a case in point. If the man making the
corrupt offer to Senators Hunton and Kjle
had tho authority of his masters for his act,
ho certninly proceeded about his work In an
exceedingly c'umsy manner.
It i3 porhaps just as well that a thorough
investigation be made of tho entire miserablo
business. In that way only can we learn of
tho operations of the hordo ot agents of
special interests who for months have In
f t vted tho corridors of the Capitol, pestering
too life out of the representatives of the peo
ple, cajoling some, threatening others, and
finally resorting to open and barefaced bri
bery when eery other means fall.
It is not likely that any considerable number
o' people will take much stock in this last
cto-y of corruption, and few will believe that
eithtr Senators Hunton or Kyle are in anyway
nu-ceptib!o to Influences of this character.
That there a number of lobbyists on hand
at nearlj every session who succeed in mak
ing their employers believe that they possess
crtaln influence with Senators and Repre

speaking acquaintance has long been a rec

Mme. Eronold is quite seriously indisposed.
At her appearance Monday night in "1 Pag
liacoi" she sang spiritedly, although it was
announced that she had a cold. Last night,
however, she could not appear, and "Faust"
was substituted for "Carmen," which had
been promised as the programme.
It Is also feared that Mme. Kronold will be
unable to sing to-night. Quille and the full
remaining strength of the company will how
ever sing in "Tho Huguenots."
The programme announced for next week
is as follows: Monday, "Carmen;" Tuesday,
"La Travlata;" Wednesday, "Alda," Thurs
day, "Ernani;" Friday, "The Jewess;" Satur
day matinee, "Mignon." and Saturday night
a double bill, "Caialleria Rusticana" and the
entire opera ot "11 Trovatore."
Miss Marlowe's industry and studious habits
are Illustrated by her repertoire. It is some

Viola, Imogen, Katharine, Constance, Galatea,
Parthonla. Julia, Juliet. Chattorton, and even
others. Eery one of theso Miss Marlowe
plays. Her repertoire for noxt week includes
several of them.
The "Belle's Stratagem," which Mi3S Mar
lowe has just added to her list, and which she
plays next week, was a great favorite with
his majesty George III and his quoen, it is
said. Once every year after Its first presenta
tion it wa3 by rojal command produced at
court, until the King finally became so weak
as to be unable to stand the fatigue of witness
ing a play. The play was originally dedicated
to the queen by her own request.

by Manager Strakosch for next week. This
dearly funny story and rarely catching music
is, some people think, the best production of
Gilbert and Sullivan. There can't be any
doubt about our wanting to hear it again.

As the Time Approaches for Holding Them
.Members Become Restless.
Members of Congress are growing more restive
dally as word reaches them from home that
their congressional conventions are being called,
primaries held, and delegates chosen. Many
conventions have already been held, and quite a
number of the present members of the Houso
have been renominated. These Include Repre
sentatives Clarke (Ma), Fitblan, Lane, and
Smith (Ilia), John (lnd.), and Lnylon (Ohio). In
the district of Representative paynter (ky.) the
convention has been held and Holla K. Hart
nominated, as Mr. l'aynter declined to be a can
didate Mnls Downing has been nominated for
one of the new districts of Illinois. Reports havo
been published that Representative Hopkins
(Ills ) has been renominated, and that Repre
sentatives McDaunold (Ilia) and Cooper (lnd.)
had been defeatod, but the districts ot these
three members hae not yet held their conven
tions. Besides the conventions already held, many
are set for the near future.
In Illinois all of the Democratic congreslonal
conventions at Chicago are set for July 10. The
Republican conventions hae not been calld.
Michigan has had no conventions as et, nor
are any called.
In Ohio Representative myton's district is the
only one In which action has been taken. Three
of the Republican conventions are set for June.
In Kansas, where a number of districts are
represented by tho Populists, the Populist con
ventions arc being called.
The Minnesota and V, isconsln conventions are
still far off, as are most of those in northwestern
Most of the eastern congressional conventions
will be late in the Summer or In early 1 alt The
practice In New England districts, and through
New York and New Jersey, is to hold the conven
tions only a lew weeks before the election.
Somo of the Pennsylvania conventions are being
called, but the dates are late
Most of the southern conventions are also late.
The activity In districts throughout the country
makes members anxious to get homo and atfnd
to their interests. Theysaj tho most effectlvo
work is done in tho months leading ud to the
conventions. Instead of immediately before the
meetings. The recent practice of docking sala
ries has made it very expensho to go homo to
attend to a canvass. Ihese considerations aro
urging members to hurry along villi legislation,
complete the tariff bill, and adjourn as soon a
Bryan's Nicaragua Canal Bill.
A plan for tho completion of the Nicaragua
canal by this government by u new system
of financiering was introduced In tho IIouso
jesterday by the author, Representative
Boon, of Nebraska. While some of tho fea
tures of Seuator Morgan's project are re
peated, great innovation is brought forward
by provisions intended to increase the circu
lating medium of the country by pa) Ing for
tho stock of tho ennat company by an issue of
legal-tender notes modeled alter the green
backs ot 1SC2, and the plan is designed so as
to meet with favor from the anti-bond nun.
According to the bill tho stock of the canal
company Is to con'tt of 1,000,COO shares of
8100 each, for whi h legal tender United
States notes, identical in character with those
issued under tho act of Fcbrniry 25, 18C2,
are to be issued, redeemable to tho same ex
tent and in tho same manner as the notes of

REPUBLICAN SElt ATORS CONFER
Probable That They Will Not Delay on Un
important Tariff Sshedules.
Senator Allison yesterday presided over a con
ference of Republican Senators at the Capitol,
about two-thirds of the members being present.
It was a continuation ot the discussion which
occurred at Senator bherman's house on Monday
It vas evident from the expressions of opin
ions that a majority of those present were in
favor of a policy of more speedy action. Sena
ator Dubois announced his intention of publicly
declaring In favor of speedy action, and when
several benators took issue with him, he said
that his Judgment relative to the effect of tho
silver repeal was as good as theirs last Fall and
he Intended to follow it
If the caucus would declare in favor of a flu
bustor he would stay by It, but in the case of an
undeveloped and drifting policy he would take
ground in favor of speedy action The benators
who have been most active In the debato that
has thus far ccurred say that they havo no de
siro to filibuster, but that they will insist upon
ample debate The dlfferenco of opinion In the
Republican ranks Beems to be what may be con
sidered amble debate and what a filibuster.
1 here were many expressions of approval of tho
announcement of Senator Dubois, and several
Senators said that they did not believe tho coun
try nould approve of any unnecessary delay.
The conference broke up without any action be
ing agreed upon, but thoso benators who believe
in early action seemed to bo In such a large ma
jority that they felt that the policy would now be
to consider tho hill with a view to engaging only
in legitimate discussion of the various schedules.
Senator Chandler advanced tho suggestion
that the debate would consume from thirty to
sixty days on whatever lines It might be con
ducted, and said that as that was tho cose there
was no necessity for resolving upon any particu
lar course at present Ho also urged that there
was no question of nlibustcring for the Republi
can conference to consider, as there were no
Senators who desired to engage in filibustering.
THE PROPOSED BOND ISSUE.
Board of Trade -Men Will Discuss It In
A meeting of tho board of trade will be held
on Monday evening next for the purpose of
considering tho bill recommended by the Com
missioners authorizing the isue by the Dis
trict of $7,600,000 of bonds at a low ratoof
lntorest, tho proceeds to be dovoted to the ex
tension of our streets and sewers. Much In
terest has been aroused throughout the city
with regard to this subject, especially among
our business men and others wen posteu in
Tho passago of tho bill would, of course,
mean much for local interests from a financial
as well as from an rcsthetio and sanitary point
of view. So large nn amount as that proposed
for the bond issue put into circulation at the
present time could not but have a most bene
ficial effect, it is believed by the Iriends of the
measure, in tho way of reviving business
which has been stagnant so long. ,
Tho output of money by the Ioeal govern
ment would, they argue, reach the very
classes who are in most need at this time,
namely, thoo who aro willing and able to
work, "and who would be eager to avail them
selves of the employment offered by tho
course of public improvements on so large a
The meeting of tho board of trade will
doubtless bring together a largo number of
our promiaet citizents and financiers, and
ought to result In a crj stallization, so to speak,
of public sentiment
Warning to American Manufacturers.
United States Consul Monoghen at Chem
nitz, Germany, in a report to tho Department
ot State, warns American manufacturers
against tho pirating of their wares by certain
unscrupulous European manufacturers. He
cites tho caso of a Chemnitz man who was at
tracted by a superior pump exhibited at tho
World's Fair and bought six of the pumps
under pretense of acting as'an agent for the
company. But when they reached him ho
took them apart, and. copying their construc
tion, put on the German market a number of
imitations. The consul cities a similar case
where an American knitting machine is
imitated and sold for 30 per cent. les than
the price in the United States, and advises
American msnufacturers to take out German
patents on their products.

FENDERS IN SIGHT.
District Commissioners Provide for Future
Security to Life nnd Limb.
The Commissioners yesterday afternoon
transmitted to the Senate District Committee
report on a recent resolution ot the Senate
which directed the Commissioners to Investi
gate street car lenders In the District. Tho
report Is based upon the resultsof Capt. Febi
ger's investigation in the matter, and Is as
The Commissioners for the past six months
have given much attention to the subject ot
fenders and other safety appliances for street
ears; have made inquiries about fenders to ofil
cials of other cities; have obtained and exam
ined copies of all specifications of patented fend
ers and guards In the Patent Office, and have
Inspected numerous models or designs for fend
ers presented to them in accordance with a gen
eral notice issued by them.
No device has been found which Is regarded as
sufficiently meritorious and surely practicable
to warrant the Commissioners in requiring the
street car companies, even if authority therefor
existed, to equip their cars with It
The Commissioners, in early March, Invited
tho managers of street railway companies to a
conference on the subject, and there formally
requested each company to equip one car with
an improved fender of & new kind and of its own
selection. The Lexington and Soldiers' Home
Company announced an intentlcn to try the
Crawford fender and wheel guard Upon thp
offer ot the Rock Creek Railroad Company to try
any fender the Commissioners might designate,
a fender was named to it for that purpose.
Subsequently the Fcklngton company tried
the Crawford fender and wheel guard, and have
very lately Informed the Commissioners that tho
company has adopted this fender for use on all
its cars and will soon put it on.
As to what remedy should be Invoked to com
pel the street car companies to use tho best
available safoty appliances, the Commissioners
report that the remedy is in legislation which
will authorize the Commissioners to establish
and enforce the following requirements:
1. That street car companies remove projec
tions above the pavoment belonging to their
constructions and which are unnecessarily in
convenient and obstructive to the public, and,
2. To use on cars those safety appliances
which tho Commissioners may find satisfactory
The Commissioners have the honor to report
that in their opinion tho street railway com-
anles operating cable and electric lines in the
lstrlct should be required to equip their cars on
said lines, without unnecessary or unreasonable
delay, with the best available fenders, which
shall be satisfactory to the Commissioners, In
order to afford the greatest possible protection
to life and limb on the publlo streets.
Mgr. Satolli Has No Intimation of Imme
diate Interference from tho Holy Sec
The Intimations published by tho London
Chronicle ot an immediate and direct inter
vention from the Roman headquarters be
tween Mgr. Satolli, the papal ablegate, and
his American opponents met with an emphatic
denial at the residence ot the ablegate in this
Mgr. Satolli is in Connecticut, but it was
stated at his homo that tho monsignior has
received no Intimation of the nlleged proposed
intervention. The Rev. Dr. Papl, private sec
retary to tho ablegate, characterized the re
ports as untrue.
"We have no knowledge of any such Inter
Tentlon," said Dr. Papi. "The matter has
not been broached to the ablegate, and no in
formation whatever bearing on the subject
has been received at the legation. I think it
Is safe to say that the statements announcing
the alleged intention of the congregation of
tho propaganda to bring about the interven
tion are without any foundation. Tho state
ment, I sco. Is also mado that another na
tional synod of the American hierarchy will
be ordered, with the plan of directing Catholi
cism In this country. I think that that also
is untrue and without foundation. The lega
tion knows nothing of such a move.
"All these 6tories printed tcis morning lack
foundation so far as tho legation has knowl
edge." When asked If the reports should be attrib
uted to enemies of Mgr. Satolli, Dr. Papi
replied: "I don't know. I would not care to
say anything about that."
About Two-thirds of the Paragraphs Were
Passed on Yesterday.
The agricultural appropriation bill was
taken up at an early hour yesterday, and
about two-thirds of the bill wo3 considered.
Only two amendments increasing appropri
ations were made, ono ot 8500 to continue
the experiments with flax and hemp in the
state of Washington, and the other increasing
the appropriation for the purchase and dis
tribution ot seed from 81S0.00O to 6100,000.
An important amendment offered by .Mr.
Ilainer, of Nebraska, and agreed to, directs
the President to enter Into correspondence
w!thhe authorities of Great Britain, with a
view to the abrogation or modification of the
regulations which require that cuttle imported
