A Caucus of Republican
BpCCial 10 TBI M.-RNiN.; CAUL
-.Acn.-ME_.TO. Jan. 12 —There was Quite
a runnus in tie Assembly this morning
over the referring of Seiilesinger's Kail
road Commission impeachment resolution
to the Committee on Corporations, of which
Alford of Tulare is chairman. This meas
ure provides for the appointment of a com
mittee of five by the Speaker, whose duty it
.hall be to investigate the commission, and
if a proper shewing of dereliction Is made
then impeachment proceedings are to be
c tumei .. Schlesinger is the chairman
of tbe Committee on Constitutional Amend
ments, and lie had hoped that the Speaker
w ould refer tho resolution to his committee
so that it ccuid be acted upon at once aud
reported back to the House.
Sch l. -inger told The Call correspond-
ent yesterday tliat the Speaker had prom
ised to so refer it, but that when the reso
lution had been read by the clerk Mathews
of Tehama rushed up to the Speakers desk
and iustructed Gould to send it to the com
mittee on corporations. This request was
instantly obeyed. Gould now denies that
be ever made any such promise to Schles
inger and they had some very warm words
over it to-day.
Shortly after tha Assembly convened this
morning Shanahan introduced a. resolu
tion illiug upon the Committee on Corpora
tions te report back the Schleesioger resolu
tion forthwith, without recommendation.
Price made a motion to lay the matter on
the table. During the reading of tbe Shan
aban resolution theS.eaker had worked
himself into quite a passion, and
before Price's motion was acted upon Gould
said tliat it was highly improper to cast re
flections upon the integrity of the Com
mittee on Corporations. He looked upon
Shanah-tn's resolution as an atTront to
those men. He showed considerable tem
per, and wben Shanahan attempted to
speak he called him to order by rapping
with his gavel till the chandeliers danced.
Bledsoe then rose to a question of privi
lege and said that he thought -_.iiian
had meant to cast uo reflection ob the com
mittee. He suggested that a motion be made
to have tbe committee report the resolution
back at once with whatever recommenda
tion it saw fit.
By this timeSbnnahanhad got him**?! into
fighting trim, and be arose aud attack! tlie
Speaker viciously. Ho declared tbat when
tbe resolution had been read the day before,
tbe chair, instead of saying, "Gentlemen,
you have beard the resolution read, what is
your pleasure?" bad at once referred it to a
committee. Shanaban was becoming more
and more aggressive as each succeeding
word fell from his lips, wben Bledsoe rose
to a poiut of order and rebuked Shanaban
for thus attacking the Speaker. The man
from Shasta continued to talk, however,
until G.uld ordered the Sergeant-at-Arms
tc seat him. The orator did not wait for
Hny assistance, but sat down and concealed
his rising wrath beneath a placid coun
Wben quiet had been restored Shanahan
appealed from the decision of the chair, but
he bad no following and the squabble ended
there. The matter was finally partly set
tled by the chairman of the Committee on
Corporations stating that his committee
would meet this- eveuing and report the
resolution back in tbe morning.
Even those members who .re with Schles
inger in the fight do not question the
Speaker's honesty, but they do object to his
receiving his instructions from Dr.
Mathews, whom they declare to be friendly
with the railroad company.
When quiet reigned again. Hurley, chair
man of the Committee on Attaches and
Employes, sent tip his report. Among
otiier places that were filled was that of
historian, which was given to a man named
Owen of Sacramento moved to amend by
changing the name of Norton to E. J.
Smith. He backed tip bis motion with more
eulogistic words concerning Smith's .uje
ri'r capabilities. Finlayson spoke very
highly of Smith's ability, but he believed
that no one but i Daiuocrat should have a
position. The whole matter finally went
back to the Committee on Attaches, and
shortly afterward ■ resolution was sent up
giving Smith a position as an assistant desk
clerk. The probability is that both Norton
aud Smith will be provided far, one because
he bas ability and the other because he is a

asylum for adult blind was made up.
Bodge, Mathews of Tehama; and Mordecai
will- go from tbe Assembly and Senators
Seawell, Mahooey and Orr will join them
from tbe senate. Bledsoe is bavins a gay
time trying to suppress the "welt," the
place where liquor is sold. Bledsoe Is the
chairman of the Committee on Public
Morals md wa. placed there do doubt owing
to the zeal he displayed early in the session
to abolish the ginmill in the basement. The
• Humboldt man called his committee to
gether this morning and started his investi
gation. He subpenaed about twenty
witnesses, including the men who
conducted the we!!, but Bledsoe
failed to entice anyone of them to admit
that he had ever seen the color of whisky
r<t tiie bar in the well, ft wqs all cold tea.
Bledsoe finally adjourned lis committee
until this afternoon, when he succeeded in
discovering one newspaper man who was
frank enough to admit that he had quaffed
botb beer aud whisky In the well. This
was the only witness discovered, however,
who wa3 favorable, and Bledsoe again ad
journed until to-morrow. In the meantime
the chairman will go on a still hunt for men
with tinted noses.
The Republicans still have the shadow of
a hone .eft that they can win the Senatorial
fight The fact that they have not given up
entirely is verified by tiie presence in tbis
city of John T. Hare ana John C. Quinn,
who aie bore in the interests of Senator
Feiton. Tbey havo with them petitions and
they are impor'.. Republicans to give
their complimentary vote to Feiton. None
of then. would perhaps have any objection
to signinz if they did not have a faint sus
picion that there is a movement on foot to
try and elect Feiton. There is a belief that
Feiton Is secretly at work trying to build
up a boom ivhich at the last moment will
bring bim the Populists an) Carlson and
Burke. That would elect him. Whether
tiiis quiet work is being done is not definitely
known, but the Republicans are wary of th
petition and thus far but a few signatures
have been obtained.
It bas been the general belief here that
atV-r the awful scandal of two years ego,
the new Legislature would be shy of having
anything to do with "cinch bills." or any
thing else that would tend to bring upo_
them the disgrace that came to some of the'
leaders of two years ago. Notwithstanding
the danger that exists in a repetition of this
" kind of work, a combine in the Senate is
already in process of formation. Six men
have held a meeting, and ft seventh naj
partly agreed to .in tbem, but be is said to
be weak a3 yet They are classed as four
Democrats and three Republicans. One of
them has made exceptions, and will net
agree to stand in on everything. He will
vote for auti-railroad bills, but on county
division measures, and others of a moneyed
character, he will be found voting with the
pool. They are very quiet and guarded, but
their secret meeting has leaked out and the
knowledge of it is in the possession of more
than one Senator.
The Republican Senatorial caucus this
afternoon nominated several Senatorial at
taches. The Assembly Judiciary Commit
tee held an important meeting to-night and
decided to report back favorably House
bill 4, amendatory of au act for the punish
ment for the intimidation or defrauding of
electors, with an amendment, making il
felony instead of misdemeanor; also House
bill 11 by Shanaban, relative to reassessment
and collection of railroad taxes invalid for
any reasons since 1882; also ."scalper
bill" of last session with an amend
ment making it applicable only to
lines within the State. Bledsoe moved that
the bill be reported back unfavorably, and
this was seconded by Miller, but the motion
was lost. House bill 21, removing limita
tion of mortgages on personal property, will
be reported with verbal amendments. An
other meeting will be held at 9:30 A. M- to
The Assembly Committee on Corpora
tions met and had a general discussion on
Shanahan and Schlesinger'- railroad resolu
tions and the 13 relz insurance bill, but took
no action. It was decided that the Traffic
Association bill presented by Godchaux,
turning over to the Legislature power to fix
railroad rates, should be taken up for dis
cussion immediately after it is printed.

Among the bills introduced is one by

also bills to regulate the practice of. medi

of a board of medical examiner.; also to
abolish the State drainage fund, and pro

Langford introduced a bill to abolish the
State Forestry Commission and also sent up
several bills providing for improvements
at the Stockton Insane Asylum.
When the Senate reassembled at 2 o'clock
Senator Carpenter, who ha 3 been classed as
a Dana Perkins man, made a vigorous oo
position to the convention being held to
morrow. lie went Farther and declared
himself as opposed to the State nominees.
He said the entire hoard ought to be chosen
in this city. There was no sense or reason
ln selecting one man in Siskiyou and the
other i.-. .-sin Diego to act as library trus
tees- The State had to pay them mileage for
nothing. There worn any number of just ns
competent men residing right in Sacra
mento. He closed by making a motion to
amend the House resolution so ns to fix the
time of holding the joint convention for
next Wednesday. It was carried. The idea
that by concerted action the Perkins trustees
could be beaten seemed to strengthen after
the delay bad been obtained, and many of
the I.epublic.ns were in favor of enlisting
the Populists with them in the fight, and if
it became necessary to Civida the patronage
At the caucus of Senators this afternoon
a committee was appointed to confer with
members of the House relative tc prepar
ing an opposition ticket. The hopeful ones
believe that if they can secure the support
of the Populists they can get a couple of
Den. its and win the fight. At this same
Republican caucus a number of propositions
were filled. S*>rae of them were deemed
necessary, but beft-ro the caucus adjourned
there was an . Sort made to put a resolution
through, giviug to each committee-room
a sergeant-at-arms and a porter. This
wholesale plaeemaklng so disgusted some
of the Republicans tliat they left tbe room,
leaving but thirteen present. Senator Wil
liams insisted upon potting a friend in as
assistant history cleik. and his resolution
to that effect was carried.
The first bill to be reported back to the
Senate favorably came from the Hospital
Committee this evening. [1 was the biil to
create a board of funeral directors, whose
doty it shall bete pass upon the qualifica
tions of all undertakers before they shall
be allowed to go into business. The bill
passed both houses twelve year, eg but
was pocketed by the Governor.
Senator . ay is very much in earnest with
his Fire Depart went bill. lie declares tliat
tbe only ones who are opposed to it are the
politicians. It provides for a full paid de
partment aud cuts down the number of ex
tras by one-half and makes them all salaried
men receiving about S9OO a year. The en
gineer, will gel Slow). These are the rates
Fiat prevail in New York. Senator Fay is
ono who believes that men in public service
should be paid no better than men in
private pursuits. lie maintains that it is
fat salaries tbat renders politics so corrupt.
An amendment to tbe pharmacy act ha
been introduced in both houses. It pro
vides that there snail be an annua! registra
tion of all druggists, at a small fee. The
benefit of tbe alteration will be that where
druggists change from place to place there
will be an accurate record kept of their
whereabouts. Tbe income tbat will be de
rived from it will barely maintain the Board
of Pharmacy which was established two
years ago for the protection of druggists.

that this had been done simply to hurry
the matter through so that the Republicans
would not ay* time to caucus and nomi

in the Democratic caucus last evening, lie
immediately stinted a caucus call for a

A LIBERAL OFFER.
How Elegant Worth Patterns Can Be
Nkw York, Jan. 12.— This is a wonderful
age, and in no olher way is it better shown
than in the policy of magazines and news
paper**. It really appears as though almost
anything could be obtained by subscribing
to •-class periodicals. There have been
a series of most liberal offers, ranging from
matchsafes to musical scholarship, or even
bouses nnd lots. The publishers of the New
York Bexar have been so inundated with
Inquiries from all over the country as to
how accurate patterns of the various pat
terns figured In their colored plates could
be obtained, that they have decided to open
a new department and have just completed
arrangements for the most perfect pattern
system in America. In order to thoroughly
introduce these patterns to the public, free
of cost, they are prepared to send to the first
500 applicants who apply to the publishers
the pattern of any one or the elegant Worth
costumes portrayed in the magnificent col
ored plates issued with the February num

Fperlal to The M or vivo Oaij.
New York, Jan. 12.— 1t has been many
years since the harbor and rivers of this
city were so thoroughly blockaded by ice,
and instead of improving the situation
steadily grows worse. So dense and com
pact is the mountain of Ice wedged in the
Narrows by the ebb tide that no boats dared
force a passage through to-day. The ferry
boats run only on a go-as-you-please plan.
Long Island and. Jersey patrons of the
various ferries were delayed and harassed
in innumerable ways, and scores of them
will undoubtedly be forced to spend the
night in the city.
Hundreds of tons of freight are blockaded
on the wharves and lighters. A blinding
snowstorm, driven by a high wind, during
the day and night aggravated the discom
fort and danger by making it Impossible
for pilots to see far enough ahead to seek
out the best channels. Six boats are fast
iv the ice in the upper harbor.
The steamship Hudson, which arrived
from New Orleans this morning, reports
having had .1 Intra timo gutting up the bay
tbri nab the ice.
Tiie floe ice in the sound is unprecedented.
A number of tug schooners and barges from
the South and Last are both ice and weather
Tie British schooner Cricket, which ar
rived from St. Johns, New Brunswick, on
December .10, was crushed in the ice In
North River to-day. Iter captain and crew
had only enough time to save a few per

Reports from quarantine state that Ihe
steamship Massachusetts, from London, is
dragging her anchor chains and is being
forced slowly down the b..y by the huge
cakes which hem her in M all side-*. Two
oil-tank steamers and two coal barges, torn
from their anchorage at Tompkinsville, are
also being carried down the lower bay by
Division Superintendent Hempstead of
the New York Central Railroad, said to-day
that the schedules of trains are more de
moralized than at any time since the blizzard.
All Western trams are four 1 1 six hours late.
The weather all over the country is very
cold. Yesterday was the coldest day known
for years, In the New England States,
New Jersey and Pennsylvania rivers were
froz.u over and the thermometer was below
zero. In North Carolina such weather has
not been known in fifteen years. Snow
storms are in progress in the mountains nf
Pennsylvania. Pittsburg reports all the
rivers frozen over and schools forced to
close. Blinding snowstorms arc reported
in South Dakota and traffic is Interrupted.
The Chesapeake Bay and tributaries are
covered with twelve to eighteen inches of
ice and the oyster-packing houses are
closed. The ice embargo is the heaviest
known la seventeen years. In New York
nothing has approached the condition in
the way of fee accumulation for years, bay
travel being greatly Impeded.
Pilots are unable to get their boats away
from the shore at Staten Island. During
the blinding snowstorm to-day a number of
vessels were driven ashore along the Jer
It Is estimated that 180,000,000 worth of
freight, much of it perishable, is lying on

Smaller gorges also farmed at inteimediate

'TIS NOT SENSATIONAL.
Abatement of the Smallpox at San
. San Luis Obispo, Jan. 12.— A San Fran
cisco paper having published at length a
sensational story about the terrible ravages
of smallpox in the railroad construction
camp near this city, it is but justice that the
exact facts be known. Several weeks ago
an ex-railroad laborer was taken with small
pox and removed to the county pest
house at San Luis Obispo. Since then ono
other laborer was taken sick with the same
disease, ami was, with one suspected case,
promptly placed in the pesthouse at camp
and quarantined. One case is now con
valescent and has appeared in San Luis
Obispo. The town and cimn are in an
excellent sanitary condition, "and there is
no occasion whatever for the alarming
stories Some 400 laborers are employed on
construction work, and the general health
of the men is excellent.
The starting of tlie new chrome reduction
works, building of immense brick ware
houses and .sheds for the Pacific Coast Rail
way, now sewer system and new bridges,
besides other building, has stimulated busi
ness here, which the smallpox libel is cal
culated to injure.

here this evening to protest against the
division of Fresno County. Quite a number
of prominent citizens of Madera were

They also bad many supporters. Among
local people the meeting seemed more like
one called to discuss a question than one
called for the purpose of protesting against
Thomas E. Hughes, Alexander Gordon,
W. W. Phillips of this city and Supervisor
J. Myer of Madera spoke in favor of the
division. W. I>. Grady, J. It. Keiley; J. W.
Ferguson and others opposed the division.
W. D. Grady was chairman and appointed
a committee of mauagemeot consisting of
W. li. IfcKenzlo, J. EL White and Fulton
G. Berry to oppose the bid and take all
legitimate steps to securo its defeat. With
a few more divlsionists present they might
have captured the meeting.

Special to TnE Mobxs.no CM.&
New York, Jan. 12.— Tbe National Asso
ciation of Wool Manufacturers began its
twenty-eighth annual meeting here to-day.
President Whitman declined a re-election
and Ratal S. Frost was chosen president.
S. D. N. North of Boston was chosen secre
The resolutions adopted declare the belief
of the manufacturers that the existing tariff
has proved advantageous to wool-growers,
manufacturers and consumers of woolen
goods. The proposed economic change is
not in responsu to any demand from the in
dustry represented, 80 per cent of the man
ufacturers of the country having joined in
protesting against tin* passage of tho free
wool bill now pending in Congress, and
which protest Is reaffirmed.
The attention of Congress is invited to
tho fact that woolen goods are manufactured
nearly a year in advance of the season for
whose wear they aro adapted, and in conse
quence any law simultaneously removing
the duty on wool will compel the whole
domestic production of tho soasou, manu
factured lrom duty-paid wool, to compete
in the markets with foreign goods manu
factured from free wool ; the Springer ' bill
discriminating doubly in this respect by ad
mitting at reduced rates simultaneously
with the repeal of the wool duties all for
eign goods imported prior to its passage and
field in bond.
At least a year should elapse after the
wool duties disappear before the com
pensatory duties are repealed.
The resolutions a. k at the hands of Con
gress a most careful examination of all the
conditions surrounding the Industry in this
and other countries, assert .that experience
has shown that simple ad valorem duties
are invariably accompanied by systematic
undervaluations, and urge the importance
of maintaining the specific form of duly, or
.one pait of it, in the schedule. They pro
test against any measure of tariff revision
which singles out a particular Industry like
that of the wool manufacturers' for reduc
tions of duly which are not applied impar
tially and simultaneously to all Industries.
The customs administration net of 1890 pro
vided for the first time for a uniform, im
partial and effective administration of the
tariff laws, with an expert tribunal for the
determination of disputed rates and classi
fication, and the retention of this law in
substantially its rresent form is urged.

A JUMP BACKWARD.
The Call Board Revives Old
Trouble Over the Settling Committee
Plan, Recently Abolished and
'■-.yy ';■•--' - .'-."■■ ""• V- ■■•_. y y . ~ ./..;•... ■-- y y-v .. v~- :, -yy ;
What the progressive members of tbe San
Francisco Produce Exchange Call Board
Association characterize as a "step back
ward" has been taken by the board, by the
revival of the old settling committee, to
which was always referred the matter of
compensation to dealers who were injured
by failures of otliei dealers to make deliv
eries when promise.!. .
It is reported that some resignations have
resulted from this going back to old prin
ciples, and that others will follow.
There were lively times on 'Change yes
terday when It was known that the settling
committee had been voted into existence
A number of tho members of the call
board of directors were interviewed on the
P. E. Bowles, vice-president of the board,
"I never heard of such a thing as this
settling committee outside of San Fran
cisco. It is supposed to be a safeguard
against individuals or cliques who might try
to force up prices, or the opposite. r In"
theory the idea is excellent, but in practice
it doesn't work. Wo went into the matter
very thoroughly before taking action to
abolish this settlinc committee, which we
did on November 22 of last year. It was
unanimously voted against by the board of
directors, who formed their opinions after
consulting with our members, the majority
of whom considered the system a Uinderauco
--"I was not present at to-day's meeting,
and until I have consulted with the other
directors would rather not say yes or an to
a question of resigning from the board."
T. J. Parsons, another member of the
board, was very much disgusted.
"I am dead against the re-establishment
of the settling committee," said he.
"We spent six months over this question
nnd canvassed matters thoroughly.
"I don't think many of to-day's voters in
favor of re-establishment can have known
wiat they had met for. Several of them
were those most emphatic against the com
mittee's existence when we consulted them
last year. Many brokers complained to us
ot a loss of customers, who claimed that a
ring inside the exchange manipulated rises
to its advantage ami then took advantage of
the Milling committee to prevent loss when
the scale turned the other way.
'•i don't know if settline committees are
in existence anywhere outside of this city,
but 1 know they are not in existence in
many great (train centers which 1 am famil
iar with. I have not yet resigned from the
board, but' feel in favor of doing so aud
"The settling committee is a nonsensical
institution," said F. W. Baton, another
member of tha board.
"There are three processes in our busi
ness. One, whero a man sells in the. ware
house; secondly, when ho sells what be ex
perts to net. These two are legitimate
business. The third is a gamble. lie sells
iv the air without knowing if he will ever
be able to get what be is selling. Well,
these people want to gamble. Granted that
there is nothing to prevent them let them
gamble. Those that dance .should pay the
piper. But here comes the absurdity of it.
They want to dance without paying the

that they will manipulate matters between
buyers and sellers. But how are we going
to guard .gainst settling committees being
"In the famous Drasbacfa case four years
ago wheat was forced S3 or 59 higher in San
Francisco than it stood anywhere else in
"Where were our 'safeguards,' then?
They shut up the ex.-hanse for a fortnight
so that we couldn't even get into the build
in- to meet and discuss.
"Resign! Certainly not. ..Members can
not vote down a rule passed by the direc
tors. Let them meet again and vote us
out of offlce. That's the proper way to do
business. I never heard of a settling com
mittee outside of this city."
A. C. Paulsell was at Stockton, but it was
ascertained that his views were as decided
as those of his brother directors.
J. W. Spe rry, a member, of the Produce
Exchange Board, laughed at the situation.
"Half of tlinn don't know what, they
.voted about; We have 200 members; out
of these sixty-one attended and the major
ity vote was rive.
"Four directors were absent who would
have reduced that majority to- one if they
bad bad tbe least idea of what was going
to happen. Wo know from former can
vasses that the majority of our members
are against the settling committee. Of
course, 1 am dead against the plan."

SOFT ON THE EAR.
Conductors Must Now Say
" KARNY" 15 ALSO REQUIRED.
The Carmen Have a Great Struggle
Kth the Words, but They
Are Getting Them.
Life seemed to hive no charms for :a-
Powell-street cable railway conductor yes
terday, ft_ he mechanically collected his
fares and jingled his bejl punch. It was
easy to see lie was In deep trouble and all
the passengers expressed mute sympathy.
One philanthropic old. gentleman v
proached the usually gay nickel-gatherer
and offered consolation.
The car whs going down Powell street.
It had passed Bush street and the conduc- •
tor was rapidly approaching collapse. i
"Is there anything I can do tor you, my
good man?" inquired the old gentleman'
"U'i-will yon, please, sir, call the nel't
street for me?" , I
"-•utter!" yelled the old geiitlafßn
through the car door. ■
"Don't say 'Gutter,' sir, but 'Sooter.' >*jM'3
against the new regulations." ; : '"*
At the word "Sutter" he visibly shud
dered, and it required the* efforts of two
ladies besides that of the old gentleman to
keep him from going into a swoon.
In a few minutes he was able to explain
the cause of his trouble. [
"You see, it's this way," ho began, 'tli.
superintendent of the road says we (con
ductors have got to say 'Karny' street for
Kearuy street, and that I kiu say itli._i-.Uy.
And we've got to sny 'hooter' street! for
Sutter street, and I'll be murdered lafpfire I
can say it as the directors call for. ix was
born ou the greenest isle on earth nlni I'll
not change my nationality for tweriit;-two
nnd a half cents an hour, and still 1/ (bject
to lose my place because I can't say ,-S '.tter'
to suit the superintendent."
The conductor heaved a deep sighj ts the
car started back, and when Sutteir street
was crossed the name was called in/ _ tone
little better than a whisper. ,'
"Well, yes it does come a little hard,"
sail a dapper little puncher. "All con
ductors have plenty to do to keep tnoir wits
about them, to collect fares and lei dyspep
tic old ladles and gentlemeu off :it the
right places, but when greater risks are to
be taken by a man the salaries should be
increased. What is to hinder a common,
everyday streetcar conductor from getting
dislocation of the jaw byeudeavoiin^ to put
an esthetic pronunciation to word-.. We
are not used to it, and who can foretell the
result*? We have all been practicing to
say 'Soota' and 'Karney' ever since these
instructions were issued, and soma cau say
them pretty well, but let some of -hem gee
at 'Soota' and the cabin will break."
"It's no trouble to say 'Soota,' " said an
other of the conductors who w 1. discussing
the question in the conductors* room at the
power-house. "I can say it so sweetly,"
lie chirped, "that all. the ladles In the car
will get mashed on di... My month is real
pretty when I say it," and lie flitted out lo
catch his car as it went down tho hill.
*Tes," said Superintendent Lynch of the
Ferries and Cliff House Railway, "we have
issued instructions to alt 1 --ur employes to
prouounce Sutter street 'Sooter' street and
>arnv street 'Karny' street.
"The directors of the road were of the
opinion that the names of those two streets
had been murdered long e-nough and have
entered upon a reform and will endeavor
through the conductors to educate tbe peo
ple of San Francisco as to the proper pro
nunciation of those streets.
"This reform movement was inspired by
George H. Mender, who was a great friend
of both General Sutter and -Jeneral Kear
ny, after whom those streets were named.
General Sutter's name was pronounced
•footer' and that of Kearnyj 'Karny.' Mr.
Mendell has taken hold of/ the matter in
earnest and is championing; the movement
to have the names of thosfe two generals
properly perpetuated, lie addressed a
communnication to the directors of the
Feniesand Cliff House K;y'iiroad Company
and asked them to instruct /their conductors
to properly pronounce the names. This
the diroctors did for one reason out of cour
tesy to Colonel Mendell, and secondly be
cause it was proper." j
Hereafter all the conductors on the lines
controlled by this company, except those
who are not built that way, will say
"Sooter" and "Karny."
