The Extra Session of Congress
Making a Record.
AN IMMENSE AMOUNT OP PUBLIC
BUSINESS IS BEING TRANS?
BILLS CARRYING OVER SEVEN?
TY-TWO MILLIONS OF DOLLARS
HAVE BEEN PASSED WITHIN
TWO DAYS?TARIF DEBATE.
Washington, March 20.?The first week
of the extraordinary session of the Fifty
fifth Concress closed with to day's ses?
sion of the House of Representatives.
Tho lecord made *vas extraordinary.
The tariff bill has been reported, and an
order regulating its discussion adopted.
Four appropriation bills, which fniled to
become laws in the Fifty fourth Congress,
necessary for the prosecution of Impor?
tant parts of the public service, carrying
a total of over seventy two million dol
? lars, have heen pnssed, with thejexeeption
of one paragraph, as .they were finally
agreed noon by the last House. 'IVO of
these, the agricultural and '-Indian, were
considered and disposed yu' to-day. The
former, appropriating/' $8,182,950, was
passed, as had been.tfhe sundry civil and
general deficiency Tails yesterday, with?
out change. 'The time allowed for debate
on this-Id 11 permitted Mr. Champ Clark
to rr_jke a characteristic speech upon .the
fjUbject of the rules. He withdrew all
** previous criticisms of the Senate and
thanked God that it still remained a de
llberative assembly. The action of the
House yesterday and to-day he termed
the most amazing and astounding per?
formance ever witnessed on the continent.
One feature of the Indian bill provoked
much oppsitiou and was Anally strickeu
out, by unanimous consent, before the
bill passed. This was the paragraph
opening tho gilsonlte or asphalt lands in
the Uncompahgre reservation, Utah, to
entry under the irfineral laws, which the
Senate had added to the bill.
Several resolutions were offered and
agreed to, making appropriations for
mileage, stationery, and pay of session
employes immediately available.
At 8:55 o'clock, the House adjourned
until Monday at 10 a. in., when the de?
bate on the tariff bill will begin.

CHANGE FOR SHERMAN.
Will the United States Object to
London, March 20.?Why should not
the Government of the United States va
fuse to recognize the blockade of Crete?
The terms of the ofllelal notice or tho
blockado which was issued by the British
government in London to-day are a di?
rect violation of the law of nations. The
"The ships of the six powers of neutral
powers may enter into the ports occupied
by the powers and land their merchan?
dise, but only if it is not for the Greek
troops on the island. These shins may
be visited by other ships of the interna?
If any ship or oflicer of tho blocking
fleet undertakes to enforce theso regula?
tions against a vessel carryicg the Amer?
ican flag it will be an act of war against
the United Stttes. There can he little
doubt ahout the correctness of this view.
Sir Walter Philllmore, who is a strong
authority upon international law, thus
puts the case of rights even of British
citizens: [*? I
"One should know whether the govern?
ment has consulted its legal advisers as
to certain eventualities, which are not
unlikely to follow upon this so-called
.blockade of Crete. Supposing that a
British ship seeing a chanceof/loing good
trade in provisions sails for a port in
Crete. She will he perfectly in her legal
rights aud it will he illegal to. stop her.
We are not at war with Greece or Crete,
so It will not be a case of trading with
an enemy and nothing short of an act of
parliament can take away the right; of
any British subject to tro to our trade
with Crete. Suppose this ship was stop?
ped and turned hack. There will be an
irresi-table claim for damages at the suit
of the Sufferers against the captain of the
British man-of-war. Suppose her frigate
had sunk her. The damages will be
greater. Suppose one of her crew is
drowned. I can see no defense to an in?
dictment for murdei.
"The rights of an American ' vessel
would, of course, he stronger. Secre?
tary Sherman will receive to-day from
Mr. Pnuucefote or throngh the American
enihassy here, a formal notice of the
blockade from Lord Salisbury. Every
American in London Is anxious to know
what his answer will he. It is not only
a splendid opportunity to make use of
the tremendous influence which a decla?
ration of the American view of the east?
ern pol'cy of the great powers wi'l carry,
but it is of genuine practical importance
as well. It is the avowed purpose of the
six powers to starve out the Creek troops
in Crete. No account is made of the in?
cidental starvation of the native populn
tion. There is food enough now in the
Interior of tjie island to'lnstjsoveral weeks.
It is entirely within tl\e rights of the peo?
ple of No ft- York, for instance, to send a
cargo of supplies to the lieleagueied in?
habitants. Is the adaiinistartion at
Washington ready to enforce that right!'''

otherwise It would be baggy und shapeless.

Evening bodices laced or hooked it: front

ING THIRTY-EIGHT PEOPLE
ROLLED INTO THE RIVER, BUT

LIST OF THE INJURED.
Cumberland, Md., March 20.?Ten per?
sons wore injured and one killed in a
wreck on tho Baltimore and Ohio railroad
near Oakland. Md., this morning. Train
No. 2, from Cincinnati and St. Louis, was
derailed.".Three sleepers, two day coaches
and the postal car left 'the track. One
sleeper rolled down the embankin?at anil
into the Youghiogheny ri ver. The bal?
ance of the train remained on the bridge,
or doubtless the casualties would have
been much greater. There were thirty
eight persons in the car which rolled into
the river, all uf whom escaped with tri?
lling injuries, except two.
General .1. S. Kullert on, of St. Louis, a
Union veteran of Chickaiuaugu fame,was
killed. The end of the eleepei* in which
his section was located was submerged.
Fifty workmen searched the river all day,
hut were unable to liud Ihe body. The
current is so swift at the point, where the
accident occurred that it is believed the
corpse has been carried down the stream.
A reward for its recovery has been
offered by the railroad company.
The list of injured is as follows: I.
Knight Thomas, Baltimore: J. 1). Kup
ptchetmer. 1770 Madison avenue, New
York; "Mrs. Jemima Boston, Davis,
Va.: M. D. Phetps, Bane, Vt.: Mrs. M.

Pullman conductor; C. W. Davis, United
States mail clerk; C. L. Martin, Snlina,
Kan.; Mrs. James Hnnlin, Salinn, Kas.;
I .1. II Richards, Fort Bcott. Kas.
It is thought that none of the injured,
with the possible exception of Mrs
l'helps, who was badly cut and bruised
and received internal injuries, are fatally
hurt. They were brought to Cumberland
on ? special train and received medicaljat
tention at the Western Maryland Hos?
pital. All the injured were "placed in a
special Pullman tonight and continued
the journey eastward.

On American Hotel Clerk*.
L. F. Austin, ill London Sketch, sup?
poses that "tho Anioriciui hotel clerk is
still the dread of the inexperienced trav?
eler. When yon stand in his presence,
you become at once; awnro that you arc
nhardened offender ami that hero is tho
magistrate who will appoint a fitting
punishment for your crimes. Ho growls
tho number of your room as if it were
the condemned coll, and you ore a little
surprised that ho docs not assume the
black cap and invoke the divine clem?
ency on your soul. I used to think bo
suffered from owrstn?y of tho rights of
man and regarded them OS asocial pyra?
mid with himself as tho opes.
"In tho European hotel tho traveler is
accustomed to be treated with considera?
tion. He stays in the house for Iiis own
pleasure and looks upon the administra?
tors as designed for his service. Such a
theory is hateful to the oeculinr remih
licanism of the American hotel clerk.
He is something mora thiui a man and
your brother, for ho docs not recognize
equality, much less deferential civility.
The hotel is a house not of entertain?
ment, but correction, and if you do not
c are for tho discipline you can go else?
where without exciting in tho clerk tho
slightest emotion of surprise or even of
inquiry. Should America over be dis?
posed to try tho experiment <>f au oli?
garchy a junta of hotel clerks might
conduct tho business of tho country with
an impassive sovority which would havo
astonished tho council of ten."
