Washington City. March 21. Clerk
McPherson, of the house of representa
tives, has been engaged in some statis
tical work of an unusual character. By
.lint of examination of the Congressional
LT(ir.l he ha ascertained that Springer
of Illinois made precisely 100 speeches,
short, good, bad and indiffe -ent, be
t ren the 1st day of December, IS), and
the 4t h day of March, 1891. Mcl'herson,
.: some one who uses his name, savs
S;--ringer's speeches will average au hour
t;ich, aud he thus occupied the time of
congress by his speeches exactly tweutv
live days, which at $350,000 per day in
volved a wastage of wind and money to
the tune of $fi,250,000. But this i not all
for which the public has to hold Snringer
wconntable and mulct him in damages.
The View of the lleuiocrat.
Accord in to this same authority. Mc
riurson ileclares that every ro.l-c.tll of
die limine in tho expenditure of time and
suhiries, etc . costs not a cent l sthaa

Springer was nor making speeches aud
railing "Tom" Heed :t tyrant he was en-g.-igfd
in the business or deman ling t he
yc:is mid nays and of the ro'.'.-caiu. It is
sitie enough to say that Springer was tlie
primary cause of demanding K) of
tlie whole number demanded, which
hrings him in debt to the people in tue
further sum of $3,000,000, making a tola!
ot' $0,250,000 as the cost of Springer's ac
tivity. The Democrats, however, have a
different way of looking at it. They say
that Springer's alertness saved the country
hundreds of millions.

nection with the recent senatorial contest
was resumed before, tiie legislative com
mittee, but 1.0 additional facts v. ere elic

was examined, and stated that lie had not
--pent $1 in the recent canvass, nor had
any one been authorized to do so for him.
Torn papers found in the waste basket in
the office of tlie fctate librarian were past
ed together and found to include a roll
call on which a number of names of legis
lators had been checked off, but having
m significance in itself; a sheet of nianilla
paper which bore the impression of sev
eral names written in lead pencil, a paper
on which there were some figures in pen
cil, and some paper bauds bearing the
mark of the Fresno bank, which had evi
dently been used on packages of r loncy.
Some More of the Scraps.
The committee decided to summon tlie
cashier of the bank in question to testify
as to the bauds. Anions the conter tsof the
now famous waste-basket werj found
.-craps of paper, which, when pasted to
gether, were found to have belonged to

upon the senatorship fight.

Yesterday Cashier McKenzie iind Pay

and Savings bank, identified the torn

SENATOR CAREY'S OPINIONS.
Not Dead Set on Free Coinage Harrison
To lie Renominated.
New York, March 21. Senate r Carey,
of Wyoming, is spending a few days here
on his way home from Washington. "The
so-called free coinage craze in the west has
buen largely exaggerated," said the sena
t or. "The great mass of the clear-headed
aud conservative element is in favor of
giving the present law a thorough trial,
believing that it will meet fnlly the busi
ness requirements of the country. The
western people do not believe the govern
ment may place its stamp upon a piece
of metal and make it worth its face value.
Tlie thoughtful western business man be
1 eve in sound money as much as his
brother in the east, only the west believes
in a large circulating medium.
No Alliance With the South.
' The talk of some of the Republican
silver senators about their constituents
wanting to form an alliance with the
s uth in order to seoure free coinage is
idle. The people of the west know that it
to the northeast that they havo to look
when they need financial aid. If we want
to build manufactories or railroads or de
velop our mines it is to New York, Boston
or Philadelphia that we come to get the
money. I think President Harrison will

money question has been electe 1 presi

financial views are a great so tree of

No Evidence ot Crookedness.
There was but little evidence of a
N'ecific character developed, and t.s to the
charges against the board of pi blic im
provements the committee goes .nto the
subject at length and quotes the testimony
offered by witnesses. There was no evi
dence that the members of the board re
ceived anything or were promised any
thing. Gen. Hickenloopcr. president of

A Too-C rednlou Young Women Who
"Fired- Her Lover Gets His Wealth.
New Yor.fi, March 2L After many years
of struggle, deprivation, and sorrow, after
the man she loved had been torn from her
side by the cruel intriguing of a jealous
rival, Miss Mary Peunock, of Greenport,
L. I., is about to come into possession of
a fortune of nearly $ 1,000,000. During the
war Miss Tenuock, who was then young
and prepossessing, became a nurse in one
of the Union hospitals. She was refined
and educated, and was almost idolized
by the sick and wounded soldiers under
her care. In the same hospital there was
a surgeon named Douglass from Ohio. He
was young, handsome, talented and pop
ular. An nttachment sprang up between
them. In the course of time they had be
come affianced lovers.
Her Love Larked Trutsfulness.
There were other female nurses in the
hospital who envied Miss Pennock, and
all that jealousy could suggest was done to
separate the lovers. The night before
they were to be married a negress knocked
at the young girl's room. When Miss
Pennock opened the door a mulato baby
was put in her arms. "If you are going
to marry the doctor you had better take
care of his child," said the woman. The
girl fainted, and when restored to con
sciousness she refused to see her lover or
listen to explanations. Brokenhearted
she left the hospital and went to her
Refused to Hear the Doctor.
Dr. Douglass tried in every way to reach
her and convince her that she had
wronged him, but she would not see him.
Within a short time he died, leaving her
by will all his property, amounting to
$S)0,000. She was dependent upon her la
bor for a living and his fortune would have
made her rich, but she refused to accept
it. About 1HJ she went to Greenport as
a nurse in a wealthy family.
She Learns Her Mistake.
Some time later she learned through
one of the women who had been a nurse
in the hospital with her that the mulatto
babe was not the child of Dr. Douglass.
She revoked her decision as to the accept
ance of the terms of the will and deter
mined to take t he fortune aud spend it in
doing good to her fellow-creatures.
