number of representatives of the canine
tribe, opened a series of three entertain
ments at Harper's theatre last night. The
audience was delighted with the per
formance, which is not,' only unique, bat
instructive, and no doubt the concluding
appearance of troupe tonight will be wit
nessed by a large audience, as was the
matinee this afternoon.
Tomorrow night we are to have the
inimitable Pat Rooney, in Lis funny play.
"Pat's New Wardrobe," a comedy
abounding in mirth and music, of which
the Boston Herald says :
"Pat's New Wardrobe" is the name of
this new three act comedy in which Mr.
Pat Rooney and his company appeared
last evening, before an audince which
crowded the bouse in every part. It
was the first presentation of the piece in
this city, but it will not be the last by a
good many times, judging from the man
ner of its reception. The audience be
gan to laugh almost directly upon the
rising of the curtain, and continued to
do so until its fall, with cessation only
when epefitiltv business was introduced,
and not always then. "Pat's Wardrobe"
was undoubtedly written for the sole
purpose of keeping an audience in a
state of merriment.

"Washixgtox Cnr, April 10. CharlesCoun-

Mr. Counselman sai 1 that bucket-shops, an i
not the board of trade, had operated to de
Kxplalnins a "t'ntare."
"I buy wheat and com in Iowa," Kid Mr.
Counsolman. "I buy it to sell agiin. Some
of this I sell to be delivered in May. The
only way you can induce a man to go into
the business of buying grain and advancing
the monoy therefor is to give hi:n tha free
dom to sell again in any way he can. I
nay sell this wheat to Mr. Adims her-, and
be sell it to the chairman, an 1 the chairman
to one of tbo other g-jntlemen, and so on

fold. But in each case th9 transaction is
based on the actual product. There is in
each cas-t an actual delivery of the goods.
This tax of 'JO c.-nts per pound is simply
abolition. It kills the business. It kills me
and all other bankers and merchants who
go out among the producers and buy grain
and help move the crops of th3 country."
Not In Business for Charity.
"I am not a philanthropist, and to do busi
ness I must have an opportunity to make a
reasonable profit. The farmer comes to the
station and wants to sell his crop. To whom
will he sell f To the consumer! The idea of
the farmers selling direct to the comsurners
is absurd. The consumer buys as he neetls
it, and you can't movetho great an 1 increas

A short colloquy emu 1 bs tween Hitt and

could suggest no plan by which the illegiti

trade tried to stop the former. The bueket
ihop was a sort of furo bank, in which the
proprietor is the dealer.
Difference Between the Two.
Hitt What is the difference between this
and the regular board of trade speculation!
Mr. Coun-wdmau That's what I want to
show you, and I am glad you asked the ques
tion. The bucket-shop has nothing to do
with the actual grain. There is no real arti
cle anywhere. No jarty to the transaction
can huve the actutl grain delivered to him
if he prefers. There is no valid contract,
and no place in which such contracts as he
has can be enforced. On the toird of tra de
we have a contract It is governed by rules
and can be enforced. It is based on the act
ual grain in store, as shown by a warehouse
Where One Party Falls.
If one party fails to carry out his con
tract, which may be to take or deliver so
much groin at such a timo, the damages he
may have caused are ascertained and set
tied according to the rules of the exchange.
The damage is of course a money damage,
and depends primarily upon the state of the
market, just as damages would in a case of
failure to carry out a contract about taking
or delivering supar, coffee, or any other ar
ticle of commerce.
Mr. Counselman's address made a good
Impression upon the committee, being de
livered with much force and apparent sin
cerity. At times he was subjected to a live
ly cross-tire of questions by the committee,
and it soon became apparent that the ques
tioners knew little about the ways of the
board of trade.
THE CONGRESSIONAL SUMMARY.
Salient I'olnts of the Doings In the Two
Washington Crrr, April 10. A resolu
Iution was introduced in the senate yester
day instructing the inter-state commerce

Hovers Near Him.
WAsmsoTOX, City, April 10. Represent
ative Randall has experienced another re
lapse, and after passing a bad night his con
dition yesterday morning was much worse
tbnn it was Tuesday. At a late hour last
night Mr. Randall's condition bad changed
but little since morning. He was, howjver,
easier than he was Tuesday night, but still
in an exceedingly critical condition. Indeed,
bis friends now admit that he has but a
short time to live, and has only been sus
tained this long by his strong constitution
and Iron will.
Talk mi the Chinese Census BUI.
Washington City, April 10. While the
senate yesterday was debating the Chinese
census proposition, Mitchell said the bill as
presented by the senate committee was ab
solutely worthies and in reality repealed
the Scott exclusion act Those in favor of
admission of the Chinese should advocate
the bill. He-wanted it amended so as to re
quire Chinese to prove that they were resi
dent of this country in October, 1SS, in
stead of June, iS'JX Otherwise the
bill would give a "ticket of
stay" to Chinese who had slipped into the
country since the former date. Hale said he
was perfectly willing to give amnesty to the
500 or 5,000 Chinese who had come Into the
country against the law since October, 1888,
for the sake of closing the doors in the fu
ture, and to prevent 10,000, 20,000 or 60,000
coming in, who would come in unless some
such proposition as the committee bad pro
posed was embodied in the bill

THE LAW'3 DAY OF WRATH.
Pennsylvania Sends X'nar Mnrderers to
Their Kternal Sleep.
Phi; auklfhia, April 10. Yesterday was
a day of wrath on the heads of IWl reakers
in this state, the extreme penalty having
been visited iK5'i four men for murJ-.T. The
most atrocious of the crimes was the one W.
H. Bartholomew was choked for. Tnis mis
creant had a liaison with the wife of h neigh
bor named Iiiliinrd, which hepersi,ted in
in spite of several atb-mpts of Dil iard to
pet his wife out of Bartholomew's way.
Finally he proposed to the woman t hat she
elope with him. This she ref used to do as
long as her huslian I was alive, so ht set to
work and won her over to a plot to lill Dil
litiid. Hatched a Ievilisli Pint.
Bartholomew was to cnuse a commotion
among the chickens, and Mrs. Bartholomew
was to waken her husband au 1 send him out
to see about it, giving him a gun which had
been disMl by the plotters. Everything
occurred as arranged, and Dlliard ivas fa
tally shot by Bartholomew. The woman
weakened and turned informer, and was
sent up for lii'e. Bartholomew ravei and
cursed to the moment when his blasphemy
was cut off by the tirop. This hangi 13 oc
curred at Ea-ston.
At Waynesburg Jnrk Taylor was bung for
the murder of William McCauslj.nd, a
wealthy drove-. The evidence was entirely
circumstantial, and Taylor died protesting
his innocence, but declaring that h 1 had
made bis peace with ( d and was wll ing to
die. George C'ark, his bi-othar-in-law, was
hung a few weeks ago for participation in
the same crime. McC'ausland was murdered
in the woods and robbed.
Well Deserved His Fate.
The third hanging took place at BeTe
font, and was inflicted on one of those crim
inals who are so plenty of late a w oman
slayer. His name was Alfred Andrew s.and
his victim was Miss Clara Price, a young
woman who was engaged to be married. He
bad tracked her on an errand, assaulted her
in a thick forest, tried to outrage her, and
then kille i her. He confessed his crira i.and
told a pitiable story of the poor girl's pleas
for mercy, and deeperate resistance when
the fiend would not desist He professed re
pentance, and died bravely.
Number four was Charles Carter, a negro,
at Ebensburg. He was a tough character
of Johnstown and killed another colored
man in a house of ill-repute in that place.
He charged bis fate to whisky and died say
ing that he expected to be saved. On his

American Miners Grow Tired of a Prac
tice with an Alleged Blessing Attached
and Lose Their Sense of Gallantry for m
Time Free Baths for Females . Who
Made Life Miserable Wrathy, bnt
Shamokis. Pa., April 10 Between fifty
and sixty Hungarian women were thrown
into the Shamokin creek last evening by the
angry miners at Hickory Ridge, and kept
there until thoroughly soaked and exhausted.
Many savage struggles took place between
the men and women, and, while none was
fatally injured, dozens will feel for weeks
the effects of the fight. The Hungarians
have a peculiar custom, amounting to a re
ligious duty, which requires them to throw
water on people for two days after Easter.
They think it bad luck in the thrower to fail
in an attempt to cover the victim with
water. If successful, both will be biassed.
Too Gallant for Awhile.
The custom obtains among the most ig
norant Hungarians who thickly inhabit the
hamlet of Il.ckory Ridge. No rnntter who
would pavs along the highway, these Hun
garians would hurl ths water at them. A3
each year passed the American miners would
invariably be greeted by buckets of water
in the face as they emerg.-d from the mines.
Of course fights occurred when the Hunga
rians thr-jw th.' wattr, I ut tho miners we're
too chivalrous to battle with women.
Lost Their Chivalry, However.
Tuesday the miners hoard of an attempt
by the wo.nen to duck Holden Chester, Jr.,
anil William Rhineharc, two of the bosses.
It was decided on quitting work last even
ing that if anv of tho men were attacked
they would duck nil the Hungarian women
in the bHmlet. The whistled soun.Ie 1 "ail
home" at 6 o'clock, and when th? first four
m n gained the earth's surface they were
almost drowned with water from the buck
ets of a score of women. Tho angry miners
were reiuforced, and while a dozen ru-die:t
upon the women aud dragged them to the
creek, a body went into every house in the
hamlet in search of Huugarlau women.
Filled the Creek with Them.
The fight that enue I was very exciting,
and the scene a strange 0110. In a short
time the creek was alive with struggling
women, wbile the banks were lined with
hundreds of miners and E.iglish-speaking
residents. As each woman climbed the banks
some workman wculd rush at her, pick her
up in his arms and throw her back into the
stream. Great cure was taken that none of
the women shouid drown, although quite a
number of them fainted.
STaildened the Huns.
The Hungarian men were not strong
enough to show fight, and rem lined mad
dened sevtators nt a safe distance. When
the invasion of the hamlet occurred three of
the women urine I themselves with weapons
and rushed from house to bouse shrieking
for their sisters to ban 1 together and drive
the men bn k. In nn interview with one of
the miners he suid: We would not seriously
hurt tho women for worlds, but the practice
must be stopped. In our estimation tha duck
ing will have its good effects." The Hun
garians are enraged over the affair and

The ring lieoame slippery from the blood

Four Lives Lost at a Furnace Other
Chicago, April 10. The only eye-witness
to the descent of the cyclone upon Highland
Park Tuesday night was the city marshal of
the place, W. F. Elwards, whose duties had
kept him out of doors. Mr. Edwards is a
man of remarkable presence of mind, and a
trainel and close observer. Ha was just
leaving the jail when the phenomenal storm
broke loose over the town, and it happ?ned
that the whirling terror made its appear
ance, swept through the town, and went on
to the lake only a few hours after Lieut K.
M. Beall, of tha United States signal serviea,
before the academy of sciences, hail been
laying down the axiom that Chicago was
practi'-ally out of the dangerous belt of cy
clones. Highland Park is not quite twenty
three miles from this city.
What Mr. Kdward Saw.
What he saw on emerging into th street
again Mr. Edwards describwi as follows:
"All at once the northwestern portion of the
sky began to grow thick and black, and a
confused tunch of very black clouds came
swiftly rolling on. It had been thundering
and lightning before, but as the storm came
even with tho tower there was no other
noise but that of an awful roar, hollow and
so weird that I could not compare it with
any oth-r noise I ever heard. While this
ball of clouds came up the sky to the east
and to t he west of us was quite clear and the
stars were shining. When I saw the storm
approaching it was about 300 feet up in the
The Swoop of the Destroytr.
"When it had reached a jioiiit in mid-air
half a block from n here I stood a bolt of
black cloud not more than seven feet wide
I should judge, -hot out and descended with
awful speed to the ground, breaking off
tall tree nt the r)oji. Another bolt, much
thicker through, at the same moment
loosened itself and came down, smashing up
the blacksmith shop of Mr. Pitts. At the
same timo there was a terrific sound as of a
fearful explosion. From Mr. Pitts' place the
same broad bolt, which by this time must
have been 100 or 150 feet w id-, rose about
ten feet above the groun 1, and scooted off
diagonnlly, striking the dwelling house of
Michael Rafferty, which it lifted up liodily,
shoving it about ten feet off its foundations,
and dropping it again.
Demolition of the liurrli.
"From there 1? moved toward the Cath
olic church, about 100 yards away, an.l to
tally destroyed it After that it knocked
. over a balf-dozen smaller houses and farms,
snapped off scores of trees and telegraph
poles lifted a dozen roofs and then went,
still in that same carious rig zig fashion, in
the direction of the railroad tracks and the
station. It th-n rose up once more into the
air, 500 feet high, and traveled rapidly off
toward the li.ke, where it was lwt, and I
didn't attempt to follow it. Puriug this
time less than two miuutes in all there
was no bail nor rain, no thunder and no
lightning, nothing but that queer roaring
