of tho tug without wniug the ire n. As uiiht

Tho wreck of tho itainbow. a lumber-laden

THE BAND DID ROT PLAY
No Arrangements Made for tbe Hall
Rent and Hundreds Disappointed.
CLOSED DOORS GREETED THEM
Large Audience Wanted to Hear the Marino
Band Oive a Concert, bat the Hales of the
Hall Vera in the Way Only Let In to
Keep Oat of the Wet
After plodding through rain and mud in tho
endeavor to reach Convention ball, where it
was announced that the Marine Band would
glvo another of its well-selected concerts,
over 800 lovers of music wero compelled to
pocket all anticipations of a pleasant evening
and retrace their dampened footsteps with
heavy hearts and disappointment.
Early in the evening numbers of persons
made tbelr way toward the hall, but as it
wa3 too early for the doors to be opened they
patiently waited outside with the storm
dampening their spirits and clothes. Tho
tlmo for tho concert to begin approached and
tho crowd Increased, but still tho doors re
mained tightly bolted on the inside, and no
admittance was granted.
There was a general surprise all around
when the members ot tho band arrived and
were refusod entrance. At last Major Mills,
the chairman of tho committee having the
affair In charge, came, and finding a largo
gathering of people demanding to get msido
tin) building nnd have their musio hn called
upon tho doorkeeper to explain tho difficulty.
It was immediately forthcoming. The major
was Informed that tbo (250 rent of the hall
had not beeu paid in advance, as Is required,
and unlcs It was planked down on tho spot
there would bo no concert.
As the major does not pull a little wagon
load of greenbacks around with him to meet
such emergencies, ho skipped off for Mr.
Uu:,iUi:son, tho manager of tho ball, to ur
rangd matters; but that gentleman could not
bu fouqd, nnd as tho rule was Irrevocable ho
he could allow no performance. Tbo audi
ence had been admitted to tbo placo to keep
tho people out of the storm, and when tho an
nouncement was mado that they would have
to vamooso tho look of disappointment ou the
faces of those music lovers was worse than
could havo appeared on tho countenances ot
any other kind of lovers.

FanclullI said that his men wero all ready for
tho event, and that special preparation had
been made and an exceptional effort mado in

HIGH SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT.
Pupils of the Central Delight a Large Audi
ence at the Annual .May Exercises.
There was enough youth and beauty ex
hibited in tho entertainment given last night
in tlio Central school ball by pupils of that
school to hold the interest of tho crowded
audience throughout tbo programme.
It was tho occasion of tho annual May ex

made for the event. A lengthy programme
ot music and drarnu was presented in a most
successful manner by tho talented voung

Tlio production was abovo criticism, and
all parts wero essayed with remarkable ex

an unsophisticated old farmer: Mr. Julihn, as
an atmospherical artist; Mis3 Lynham, as tho
staid and cantankerous lady of the bouse;
Miss Phillips, as Esmeralda, and Miss Light

WILL BE SENTENCED TO-DAY
Judge Bradley Denies a Restraininrj
Order in tbe Commonweal Case. "
REASONS FOR HIS DECISION
Bights of tha Majority Tenni the Bights of
the Minority Carl Browne Issues His
Orders for To-day Telegraphic Beports
of Coxeyite Contingents.
Commonweal leaders Coxey, Browne, and
Jones have been agala defeated in tho courts,
and sentence wiU bo passod upon them to
dny. After, arguments lasting over on hour
yesterday afternoon. Justice Bradley, of tbe
District supreme court, refused to grant tbe
writ of certiorari, for which application was
made several days ago.
Congressman Hudson, of Kansas, and At
torneys Lipscomb and Hyman made argu
ments In suoport of the application, and United
States District Attorney Birney represented
Tho commonweal counsel dwelt on tho alle
gations that tbe second information was not
under oath, as required, and that tho act
under which arrest was made was unconsti
tutional, fecnuso It prevented the people
from assembling, aud because It gave tbe
Speaker of tbe House, acting with the Vice
President, the right to suspend legislation,
practically amounting to right of repeal.
Judge Bradley In his decision said that it
was not within his jurisdiction to consider
allegations of errors made In the lower court.
'Prosecution in tbe police court, it seems,
said tho court, "should bo on tho oath of the
party Instituting tho prosecution, and not at
all on the outh ot trie prosecuting officer.
The question of unconstitutionality of tbe act
appears to mo ludicrous almost absurd.
The right of thu people to pcaicably assemble
and petition Congress Is subordinate to the
right of tho iieople In general. I: is not a
right allowing any individual or individuals
to override others; not ouo that would enable
tbe people to usscmbiu in the Houses of Con
gress. With such a right, all the tramps of
tho country.wilh all tho v ermin of tho country,
would bo upt to como and take practical pos
session ot either bouse of Congress.
"I have dlguiUcd this argument, it seems to
mo, by too much reference to it. On the
whole, I don't think that such a case has been
mado out as would justify tho court In exer
cising jurisdiction. Tho defendants had a fair
trial in the police court. It I doubted this
fact at all I would isuo the) writ. Tho writ of
certiorari is therefore refused."
Nothing now remnins for the men but to
await judgment In the police court. Judge
Miller, who received his new commission yes
terday, will probaoly sentence them this
The penalty prescribed for each of the two
offenses of which they have beeu found guilty

speaking in regard to the probability of a

"Of course, I do not know what strikes will
occur this year, because the convention has
not reached that order of business In which
the policy for the enoulng year is to be out
lined, but judging from the iolicy of the past
It will be pretty safe to conclude that if all
mill owners refuse to sign the scale, then
there will be a national strike."

At the opening ot tbe session Senators Fry

his course. He would, however, insist oa
When the discussion had proceeded, Sen
ators Vest and Aldrlch got into a controversy
over the reductions in duty, the Ehode Island
Senator claiming that the decreased total in
come from duties were chiefly on luxuries,
and not on necessities. Mr. Vest declared
that as the McElnley hill in many sections
was prohibitive, the arguments of Senator
Aldrlch would not hold. .
When the marble paragraphs were reached
there was a brief discussion oyer the different
treatment of marble and granite, which re
sulted in a Republican victory, Senator Jones
agreeing to the amendment mentioned above.
The balanco of this schedule was then
adopted, and when schedule Con "metals and
Iron and steel manufactures" was reached
Senator Harris proposed an executive session,
after which the Senate adjourned.
The Senate for the first time since the tariff
debate began settled down to real, earnest
work on the schedules esterday. For Bve
hours the consideration was steadily pushed,
tho result being that eleven pages of the bill
were disposed of more progress than has
been mado In the entire three week3 during
which this bill has been considered by para
graphs. The "chemical schedule" was com
pleted, and the "earth, earthenware and glass

granite, sandstone, etc., from the free list
and place them on the dutiable list at 7 cents
per cubic foot, and to increase the duty on
this class ot dressed stone from 20 to 30 per
cent, ad valorem. The feature of the day
was tho denial of halt a dozen Republican
Senators that any agreement had been reached
to allow tho bill to ultimately come to a vote,
and tho bold announcement of Messrs. Frye
(Maine) and Dolph (Oregon) that they
stood ready to go to any lengths and use any
parliamentary methods to defeat the passage
of the bill. The amendments agreed to to
day fixed the following rates:
Cosmetics and like preparations, 40 per
cent, ad valorem; castile soap, perfumed, 35
