? \ INJUSTICE DONE HIM.
Convict in a Penitentiary* Never Given a
New Trial lie Was Entitled To.
Savannah, Feb. 20. ? It has just come
to light here that a negro named Major
Lee, who has served fifteen years in the
Georgia penitentiary for murder, has
never had a new trial which was granted
him by the supreme court on the grounds
that be is not guilty under the evidence
thai was submitted in the case.
Lee was convicted in 1881 and the ver?
dict was contrary to the law and the e, i
deuce. In the meantime Leo was sent to
the penitentiary and is there to-day and
has never had his new trial. When Bent
up he was a little 14 .war-old hoy. Ho
is now a burly neuro of thirty.
Solicitor General Osborne, of the east?
ern judicial court.who has m<t come Into
office, took Lee's case up and has insisted
tin its being disposed of.
Lee was charged ".with the murder of
Einert Lee. n white man, but "there was
nothing but circumstantial tevidence and
very lit Me of that.
The judge now on "the superior bench
defended him, on which account a judge
from un adjoining circuit twill be called
down to try the ease should there be an
attempt to try it, which is not probable.
A SERIOUS DISASTER.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Feb. 20.?The Black

ware and Hudson Coal Company, located
at the east end of this city, was destroy?
ed by fire this morning. The loss will
reach fully $80,000. Six hundred men

THEY DON'T LIKE PUBLICITY".
Fall River, Mass., Feb. 20.?The cloth
broke!s of.this city, when asked last
?.-veiling for the usual report of tile
week's business in the local market, gave
out for publication only the amount of
production and of sales. Othet figures
were withheld, they said, by request of
the ml 11 met, who think that it interferes
with the trade for printers, converters
and buyers in the market.
To the creditors of J. Donaldson: I
have been as lenient as possible in the
collection of debts due the estate of the
above canted party. All claims now due
will be placed in the hands of an officer
for collection if not paid at once.

Mr. lialliuger sided with Mr. 'Lodge
and against Senators llawley and 'feller.
In the course of his remarks he said that
very church but one in the United Slates
refused to take money from the Govern?
ment for sectarian purposes.

Gnllitiger replied. "I do not mean to ar?

Mr. llawley defended the amendment
as a "little letting mi" on the declared
policy of the Government. He was not a
Catholic, he said, but it was a faith hon?
estly held by an immense number of peo?
ple. It was a church of [tremendous or?
ganization and executive power. The
two houses last session were a little mer?
ciful in the matter of permitting Indian
children to learn to read under a Catholic
priest for u Iii tic time, until other schools
could be organized. That was all that
was proposed in the amendment- Indian
children should not he turned out of
school, and that efforts should he made
I to establish non-sectarian schools. He
j never hud such prejudice against Catholic
i schools as that he would not prefer to see
his children go there rather than have
them run the streets as loafers.
Mr. Pettigrew, chairman of the Indian
committee, defended t he'amendment anil

ble prejudice of the Indian .Rights Asso?
Mr. Gallinger protested against this
Mr. 1 loar eulogized the Catholic Church
for its adhesion to the constitutional
right of all Christian bodies to stand on

the eminent pulpit orator who had just
been called to^the head of the great
Catholic University in Washington, Dr.
Conaly, declare in a farewell speech to the
people of" Worcester, Mass., where he had
been living for twenty-live years, his de?
votion to t be authority and nrinciples of

and say that he owed his right to he a
Catholic ami his right to advocate bis
religious faith to the humane and just
provisions of the constitution of the
I'nited States, which declared all Chris

Mr. Allen ridiculed the idea of pay?
ment of denominational schools as a un?
