Prof. Fanclulli, leader of the Marine
Band, and Lieutenant Draper, of the ma?

the tunes to be played on the Decoration
Day parade, and the Professor was placed
under arrest. He thinks It is a hard case
that the leader of the uand is not allowed
to select the tunes, which his men are to

music; but these marine fellows arc very
jealous of theirJprero?;ativcs,*as he will

The earthquake shocks of Monday
seem to have been severest in Southwest
Virginia, and indicates the existence of
subterranean forces in this section of a
strong and restless character. It is not

already happened; for if "the danger had
been greater the shock would hnve been
stronger, the experience in all such cases
being that the greatest damage is done at

From the large number of inquiries

The enraged workinguien of \YiUuer**

lesson; but if their eyes and those of the
huudreds of thousands who now think as
tbey do, had been opened twelve months
earlier, they would not be grieving at tho
folly which induced them to listen to the
honeyed words of Republican orators,
and which led them to participate in the
pilgrimages to Canton. Instead of seeing
starvation stalking iu the midst of plenty,
and apathy and listlessnc-ss almost every?

walking arm-in-arm with happiness and
prosperity. However, they stili have the

from power at tho [first opportunity the
party of trusts and privileges 'is morally
certain. The people of the country as a
majority havo at last reached the conclu?
sion that the taritr as a promoter of pros?
perity Is a delusion and a snnre. They
know that the secret of^all their miseries
is the demonetization of silver, and that
no substantial prosperity can come until
tho white metal has been restored to Its
proper place in the money of the country.
This they will accomplish by their votes

WILL NOT OBSTRUCT LEGISLA?
In the House of Representatives on
Monday Mr Lewis.of Washington,availed
himself of the suggestion of Senator Mor
ganthat the House, by its automatic sys?
tem of adjourning twice a week, has vio?
lated thejeoustitutionnnd therehy'effected
a dissolution of the extra ^session of Com
gress He made the point that there was
no legal session ol the House of Represen?
tatives, and that ^therefore the journal
could not he legally approved On account
of the general desire '.that there should
not be a long session on Memorial day,
Mr Lewis contented himself with merely
a formal rrotest.
The propositon advanced by Senator
Morgan is regarded seriously by Demo?
crats. But for one thing It is probable
that the extra session would bo interfered
with aud would'end sensationally,as there
Is a strong disposition in the Senate to
resent the course of the "House, and the
declaration of Mr. Morgan has attracted
attention to it sharply.
There i'i a strong motive, '.however, for
not interfering with tho passage of the
tariff bill. The opposition iu Congress
have adopted the policy of non-interfer?
ence with the passage of this bill. Ac?
cording to their vie a" of Ibe situation the
test Is to be made before [the country as
to whether the tariff legislation will re?
lieve the hus'ness depression or whether
it will fail and free silver wil1 have to be
So confident are they in their ow n theo?
ries that the tariff has nothing to do with
the cast; that they are anxious that the
test should hot be embarrassed by any
outside consideration, and that should
better times fail to .come it could not [be
offered as an excuse that the tariff legis?
lation was obstructed or interfered with.
The view advanced by Mr. Morgan
might be adopted by a majority of the
Senate, and they might refuse to legis?
late while the House is iu its present con?
dition, or they might adjourn, regarding
the session as dissolved by the action of
i he House.
But if they did this it wou'd put an end
to tariff legislation and prevent the test
being made which they, and presumably
every one in the country who agrees with
them or is in doubt, on the subject, de?
sire. It is not. likely, therefore, that Mr.
Morgan's proposition will be pressed.
The Democrats will probably content
themselves with calling attention to the
situation, and*then let the future take

has been any violation 'of the constitu?

SUBMARINE TORPEDO BOAT.
Omiiption of the Wonder Being
Bttag Built by Mr, Holland.
tu wtU tv ?I least ten days before tho
m**uw torpedo boat Hollaud will be
r**d> tot her trial trip. When she has
teett tested, we shall havo a pretty fair
bfaa as to whether sub-marine warfare is
? dream or a reality. '. As the boat lies
&tatt?*ide of a pier at the Crescent ship?
yards, ^5 KlUabethport, now, she looks
Ikk* a disreputable old fish come to the
top of *he water to-breathe. On either
sid* of her snub-nosed head are two open
ti cs, which look exactly like gills, and
she has a "blowhole-' in the top of her
head, 'ike a whale, from which she will
spout torpedoes it stead of water. In
short, she is "very like" "sawed-off"
whale. All visitors to .the yard go to look
at the strange boat the flr??t thing and
say: "Well, I'll he denied." The work
meu.though they may pass her fltty times
a day, turn every time|to look at.her, and
the strange craft is the ceuter of all In
terest in the yard. A big sign is hung at
her gangplank, saying "No one admitted
on tltis boat except those actually work?
ing on her," and the rule is enforced.
In answering a letter oh the subject ol
the boat to the Philadelphia Times that
In order to make a clear~reply to that
question it will be necessary to describe
briefly the design of the boat as a whole.
Primarily it is an artificial fish mid is
modeled in longitudinal section, very
much like a whale about fifty feet long.
The Interior is entirely taken up with the
operating mechacIsm, no room whatever
being provided for living quarters. It
might also be deseribed as a very large
locomotive or automobile torpedo, differ?
ing from the ordinary torpedo iu accord?
ing room for human direction instead of
being launched and lelt to take care of
itself. While simply moving about from
place to place, its deck und the small con?
ing tower in which the commander
stands are above water; perhaps a foot of
the deck, which is a turtle back, and
about thirty inches in ^height of; the
coning-tower abore that. When acting
in this capacity it is propelled by
a naphtha or gasoline e'jgiso, oper?
ating an ordinary Small screw propel?
ler. When it is desired to sink the
boat for submarine operations, water Is
let into trimming ?r ballnst'tanks in the
bottom in a sufflclnent amount to reduce
its flotation or buoyancy to a few hundred
pounds. That is to say, wben'submerged
its weight, if weighed In the water, would
be within about five hundred pounds of
its actual weight Jon land. It can bo
manoeuvred up to one thousand pounds
(lotutit.n, but not much above that. The
direction of the boat in motion latterly is
affected by vertical rudders in the same
manner as any other craft. Its diviug and
lising and the regulation of its depth
from time to time is effected by two hor?
izontal rudders pivoted one on each side
of the centre line abreast of the propeller.
When the after edges of these rudders are
depressed below the horizontal plane of
the boat the stern is thrown upward and
the bow downward, causing'the vessel to
dive. When the horizontal rudders are
moved in the contrary direction, the stern
is thrown down and the bow up, cnusing
the boat to come to the surface.
When under water the gasoline engine
is not operated, or, If operated, only for n
very short space of time; because al?
though the exhaust of the engine is out?
board, still the consumption of air neces?
sary to the combustion of the gasoline
would speedily use up the limited atmos?
pheric resouices of the interior. The gas?
oline engine being shut off under watir,
for the reason just stated, the poiver re?
quired for submerged opention is pro?
vided.by a system of electric storage bat?
teries operating a motor attached to the
propeller shaft. The depth of submerg?
ence at any moment is determined by a
guage, which registers inside the exact
pressure of water outside. '.The pressure
of water upon a submerged body being
almost exactly half a pound to tho foot
of submergence, it follows that a guage
which on the outside would register the
external pressure in pounds and ounces
would show exactly the depth of the sub
mergence. Thus the operator having be?
fore him the pressure guage noting ex?
actly bis distance helow the surface of the
water, and the apparatus for determining
the course of the boat irrespective of the
standard compass?which is subject to
considerable deviation when under ?vnter
ami is not altogether reliable? and also
having a speed indicator before him by
which he is enabled to determine the
exact distance of run per minute, can,
for brief periods of time und through
abort distances, navigate almost as intel?
ligently and keep almost as exact course
under water as above. When it is desired
to come to the surface quickly, the water
which has been taken into the ballast
tanks for the purpose of reducing the
dotation can be ejected by a blast of com?
pressed air from tanks in which it is
stored at a pressure of about one thou?
sand pounds to the square inch. These
compressed air tanks can also be drawn
upon, from time to time, to freshen the
atmosphere in the interior of the boat
when s?hn erged.
The armament of the vessel consists of
one torpedo tube in the line of the longi?
tudinal axis of the boat forw.ird, frcm
which the ordinary Wnitehead torpedo is
ejected by a blast of compressed air or by
a small charge of gunpowder. It also
has two submarine projectile tubes or
guns carrying a projectile in the form of
a thin she 11 chargeable with about eighty
pounds of gun cotton. Of course the
warlike utility of such a weapon is as yet
theoretical or problematical, no opportu?
nity having occuired for its actual use in
warfare. In the experimental sense the
French have developed the subniariue tor?
pedo boat more than any other marine
power. They have one. which has been
subjected to a number of severe practical
trials, such as sinking ^tc the bottom In
seven fathoms of water with its full crew
on board, lyimr there for three hours
without any Inconvenience and then ris?
ing to the surface safely by means of its
own appliances. This French boat has
also made a voyage cf nearly six miles,
submerged all the 'time, at a depth of
twenty feet or more, making two altera?
tions of course nnd coining to the surface
within less thnn a cable's length?that is
000 feet?of a designated point. In gen?
eral it may be said that there is no me?
chanism of human invention the safety
and efficiency of which denend so ; abso?
lutely upon perfect practical working of
theoretical designs as a submarine tor?
All this may sound technical to tiiinie
chanical ears, and yet it Is as plainly told
as is possible in describing a remarkably
complex piece of machinery. Asa mat?
ter of fact expert mechanicians and naval
constructors may sneer at the narration
on account of its purposed avoidance of

THE CYCLE NEARLY COMPLETED.
The history of this^country nppea-s to
show that panics and recoveries inn in
about twenty-year "per'ods. There was
tho panic of 1873, followed by "five years
of depression; the beginning "of recovery
in 1877: the full tide of recovery in 187U,
followed by a period of prosperity lasting
until 18112." Then came the panic of 1S0B,
followed by the period of depression
which we are now experiencing. To some
there 'ire as yet no signs of [improvement
discerunble, while to~others there I-i al?
ready a*Tfaint glimmer of dawn. Many
are looking forward to the passage of the
tariff bill as the starting point of a new
period of prosperity. But whether from
that or some other causes,il is quite prob?
able that history will repeat itself, and
that in the fall of the present year, or the
beginning of 18!)8, we shall ." witness a
notable improvement, followed by per?
haps ten or a dozen years of great pros?

TAX ON MEDICINES.
A Committee's Suggestion to Prevent an
Increase on Reer und Tobacco.
Washington, Juno 1.?The ways and
moans committee of the House is still
smarting under the way in which the Re?
publicans of the Senate finance committee
backed its tariff bill to pieces. It. intends
to have revenge if it can, aud ^wlth that
end in view an expert has been at werk
figuring out th?" revenue that could be
raised fro-n a one cent tax levied opon
toilet articles and on all the patent medi?
cine preparations nut up In this countiy.
He has found that the revenue that
could be raised from such a tax will
amount to about $00,000,000 annually.
The ways and means committee will
discuss the ndvisiblllty of adding such an
amendment to the bill to take the place
of beer and tobacco tax inserted by the
Senate finance committee.
Some of the mere bers of ti e ways and
means committee have come'to the con?
clusion that the bill as they "r repared it
would not raise the revenue they at first
thought, and argued that they could re?
deem themselves and at the same time
hit the Seuate sub-finance committee by
cutting out the revenue raising feature of
the amended bill and iuserting in place of
it nu amendment of their own. They
also hold'thnt they can play the uest kind
of politics by killing tho tax, which is so
objectionable to the Oermans and the to?
bacco manufacturers of the country.
