THE NATIG&AL TEIBME: WASHING3M. A a, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1S93.
T5E- X"X GV 7 V" THE WEEK IN WASHINGTON jftlnor Matters of Interest in the Capital City. B0XDAY, Skpt. 3. Hepardlcss of tbe fact that a report had pono abroad in the newspapers of tho country that President Cleveland Lad undergone an operation for tin, removal of a ameer in his mouth, he, with "the first lady in tho land," attended church at the old stand to-day. He has grown stouter, hut looks as though ho had enjoyed his fishing at Buzzard's Bay. The cyclone which struck this portion of the country last week seems to have produced tho most perfect weather, and to-day was one of the most delightful in an experience of 25 years in Washington. Monday, Sept. 4. Minister Blount, who re turned recently from the Hawaiian Islands, called on Scctctary of State Gresham and had n long talk on tho Hawaiian question to-day. A time was fixed at this meeting for an inter view with President Cleveland, at which the whole subject will he discussed, and the policy of this Government toward the islands settled. The Commander of tho Spanish Caravels, Capt. Victor Ha Coucas y. Palau. called upon Secretary of the Navj Herbert at the Department to-day. and transferred the caravels, now at the World's Fair at Chicago, to tho United States. Tho Spanish sailors who havo been manning the caravels will go back to their 'native laud on ono of the ocean grayhpunds immediately. Tuesday, Srcrr. 5. Congressman W. C. P. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, filed his reply to-day to tho declaration of Miss Pollard, who is suing him for breach of promise to marry. The demurrer of the Congressman is very short, does not dony Miss Pollard's charges, but attacks the bill from a law standpoint; Col. Breckinridge claiming that the declaration is bad, in that it claims threo separate contracts of marriage, when only ono contract can be entered into between two persons. As the House was not in session to-day, and President Clovelaud had returned from his Summer outing, the halls of the White Houso were filled with Repre sentatives of tho various States in accord with the Administration, all anxious to for ward the claims of their constituents to tho various offices in the gift of tho President. Wednksday, Skit. G. Senator Yoorhoes to-day introduced a bill in the Senate for the relief of Capt. John D. Dowd, an Indiana veteran who was injured in tho Ford's Theater disaster, was pinned under tons of debris for several hours, and was the last person taken ont alivo from tho ill-fated buildiug. The bill appropriates $10,000 for tho benefit of Gtpt. Dowd. Tho Commis sioner of Patents to-day refused to review his decision declining to register tho word "Palmetto" ou the trade-mark in connection with tho salo of whisky in South Carolina. Because of this decision tho Palmetto Stato will disburse tbe corn-juice without sanction of United States law. Thdesday, Sept. 7. Hon. Josiah Quincy, of 3Iassachusetts, First Assistant Secretary of State, called at tho White House to-day and tendered to the President his resignation. Tiiis action has been expected for several weeks. Mr. Quincy informed the President that the move was made at the solicitation of tho Massachusetts Democracy, and that he would immediately return home and person ally conduct the campaign of his party this Fall. Senator Walthall, of Mississippi, rather astonished his colleagues of the Sen ate by making a silver spoeclrto-day, as it was generally understood that he was in accord with the Administration on the .financial question. He stated that he adhered to the plat'orra of the Democratic party as an nounced by tho Chicago Convention, and be lieved in tho free coinage of silver. Tho Secretary of War to-day ordered 300 hospital tents sent from the Quartermaster's Depart ment at St. Louis to tho peoplo left homeless through the ravages of tho great hurricane on tho South Carolina coast last week. Feiday, Skpt. S. There was a small-sized riot at Eckington, a Washington suburb, to-day, caused by a strike of colored men working upon a sewer excavation. The men dc mnuded wore money from tho contractor, which was refused, and they stopped work. Some Italians who were on the same work re fused to quit. The negroes attacked tho work ing Italians, and tho entire reserve of police of Washington was necessary to quell the riot. Nobody was seriously injured, but there was a number of black eyes and bloody heads when tho fightingstoppod. Tho President sent in a number of important nominations to-day. Among them wcro the names of Theodore Eunyon, of New Jereey, to be Em bassador to Germany; Albert S. Willis, of Kentucky, to bo Minister to tho Ilawaiiau Islands; Henry M. Sraytho, of Virginia, to bo Minister to Hay ti; Ellis Mills, of Virginia, to be Consul-General at Honolulu, and AL S. Carroll, of Maryland, to be Consul-General to Dresden, Germany. Saturday, Skpt. 9. For tho first time in tho history of the historic Executive Mansion, a child was to-day born to a President of the United States. The interesting event hap pened about noon, and another daughter has been added to tho Cleveland household. Tho day before Mrs. Cleveland took a long drive witli her husband, and was in the best of health and spirits. Several others have first seen the light of day at the White House, but no other President has ever had a child born in the Mansion. President Tyler had a grandson and granddaughter born in tho White House, as did Gen. Grant a grandson. The latter wa3 tho first child of Col. Fred Grant, who was living with his wife iu tho Mansion at tho time. Mrs. Cleveland and tho baby arc reported as doing well. CHAT OF THE CORRIDORS. Tho War Department announces that the itir created recently over tho exhibition of a Tccruiting placard of the United States Army in an Ottawa (Canada) store window, which called for able-bodied men to join tho United States A rmy, was simply "a tempest in a teapot." The display of tho placard was unauthorized by the War Department, and it is said that tho poster was obtained without authority by unknown parties. Herman Perls, a veteran of tho late war, ono of tho owners and publishers of the Deutsche Prase, tho leading German newspaper at tho Capital, fell and broko his leg, on Wednesday, Sept. 6. What makes this accident especially Bevero to Comrade Perls is the fact that when a soldier in a Now York regiment ho was wounded so severely in his other leg at An tictam that ho could hardly navigate. This accident, therefore, is especially unfortunate, becauso tho good leg is tho ono that was hurt 'his time. Comrade William D. Mack, who was unfor tunate enough to lose both feet in returning from tho battlefield of Gettysburg on tho 4th of July last, was out driving last week, and appeared in excellent health. Otio foot has been amputated above tho ankle, aud the other cut clean away, leaving nothing but tho heel. In a very short tinio Cornrado Mack will be around with artificial limbs, and tho Surgeons predict that he will bo able to got about with out tho least difliculty. It it almost a miracle for a man of Comrade Mack's ago to havo re covered from such a shock. Mr. Ellis Mills, wno was lor somo time edi torially connected with Thk National Trib une, was nominated by tho President last week to bo Consnl-General of the United States to tho Hawaiian Islands, stationed at Honolulu. After leaving The Tiubunk .Mr. Mills becamo Privato Secretary to Secretary of Stato Bayard, filliug that position during tho first Cleveland Administration. When Secretary Blaine suc ceeded Mr. Bayard. Mills was made a clerk in the State Department. Ho was detailed to accompany Mr,. Blount when tho latter was sent to the Hawaiian Islands as Commissioner from this country to settlo a flairs in thoso Islands. It was reported shortly after Mills's arrival that he, like nn oiiicer of tho U. S. Navy, was engaged to bo married to the daugh ter of a millionaire Chinaman of Honolulu. Mr. Mills hails from Virginia, and is ono of the best stor3'-tollers that noted Stato ever produced. Without question he will edify tho inhabitants of tho Islands with somo of his best efforts in this direction, and will soon become a favorite with tho natives. S C A case of extremo hardship, under tho re cent rulings of tho Interior Department, camo under tho personal notice of tho writor last pension day. A veteran from Baltimore, who camo over to Washington for his pension money, seeing that I wore the G.A.R. button, stopped aud asked for information. Ho told me that after having spent over an hour iu the line at the Pension Agency, ho was told by the employes there that notice had como tho day before that his pension had been suspended. Tho comrade, whoso name is forgotten, pro duced his pension certificate, which was num bered in tho 10.000, showing clearly that ho had been on tho roll over 30 years. His skull had been fractured by a minie-ball ; he was dis abled by another wound in the right elbow, and had received a bad wound in tho right groin iu the coven days' battles before Rich mond in 3SC2. All theso wounds were men tioned in his pension certificate, and tho writer felt his head and could trace tho silver plato which covered the brain where tho natnral covering had been shot away, and could dis tinctly see that the right arm was helpless. It was a very pitiable caso, aud will without doubt be remedied. The resolution introduced in tho Senate on Thursday, Sept. 7, by Senator Wolcotfc, of Colo rado, calling for information as to tho bounty on maple sugar, and to which Senator Gallin ger, of New Hampshire, objected, having come up on Friday, Senator Wolcott expressed regret at the bru;quenes3 of his response to tho New Hampshire Senator, aud said that ho wished now to modify his resolution in accordance with Mr. Gallinger's suggestion to cover all kinds of sugar. This was agreed to, but not before Senator Proctor, of Vermont, had dis charged some shafts of ridicule at the junior Senator from Colorado. Maple sugar, ho said, added a peculiarly tempting flavor to certain mixed commodities, which made them very tempting to the wayward appetite. Laughter. The Senator from Colorado would pro'nably ask that tho Government should take tho whole product, have it coined into suitable cakes and put up in other proper subsidiary packages, to be given to Senators and Eeprescntatives for distribution among their constituents. It would not require to have stamped upon it "In God we trust," nor would it need to he mado legal tender by law. Ho would guaran tee that it would pass current on its intrinsic value. ANOTHER GREAT MAN GONE. IlamiUou Tish, Grant's Secretary of State, Passes Away. Flags flying at half-mast on the Department of State ou Friday, Sept. 8, caused inquiry to be mado as to what Statesman was dead. It was soon learned that Hon. Hamilton Fish, Secretary of State during Gen. Grant's Ad ministration, had died at Garrison, N. V. Ex-Secretary Fish was one of the beat-known figures on the streets of Washington during' the two terras of Gen. Grant in tho White House. Ho was appointed Secretary of Stato March 11, I860, succeeding Hon. E. B. Wash borne, of Illinois, who held tho position but six days. When Gen. Grant was re-elected and took his seat, March A. 1673, Mr. Fish was reappointed Secretary of State, and served through the entire term of that Administration, turning over the office to Hon. William M. Evarls, who became Secretary of Stato under President Hayes. Tho funeral took place on Monday, Sopt. 11, the services being held iu tho historic St. Philip's Church of tho Highlands, at Garrison. The paul-bearcrs were John King, John Schuy ler. Aleck Clinton. Seth Low, Col. Thomas B. Ardon, and Samuel Sloan, all intimate personal friends of the dead ex-Secrolary. While living in Washington, boing a rich man, the ontc-rtninnieuts given by Secretary Fish to tho Diplomatic Corps were the most lavish of anythiug ever before seen at the Capital, and wcro only equaled by those given by Secretary Whitney, of the Navy Depart ment, during Mr. Cleveland's first Administra tion. TIRED OF LIFE. Ex-Cliicf Clerk Crohby Attempt to Drown Himself. Henry T. Crosby, who served as Chief Clork of the -War Department while Gen. W. W. Belknap was Secretary of War. and until Hon. Kobert T. Lincoln had administered tho War portfolio for a year, when ho was discharged, attempted to drown himsolf by jumping from tho Aqueduct Brtdgo in Georgetown on tho night of Sept. 4. Col. Crosby has been "playing iu hard luck " since ho left the War Department. During the war he served as a private in the 40th Pa. Inf., and was for a time stationed as a guard on the Seventeenth-street eutrauco of the old War Department buihliritr. He became a "Gencnil-Scrvico" clork in tho War Department at tho close of the war, and rapidly advanced through tho various grades until he became Chief Clerk of the Department. Col. Crosby is ono of the best-hearted com rades iu the Dopartmoutof tho Potomac Ho is a good lawyer aud one of tho best-informed men as to claims against tho Government in Washington. His rash act va3 caused by financial troubles. Ho will recover, and it is probable that tho notico given the public by his attempt at suicide will result in his many friends proffering a helping hand, which will tend to make his last days his best days. TO RESTORE THE OLD RULING. Representative Meiklijohn, of the Third Dis trict of Nebraska, has introduced a hill in tho House regarding tho dependent pension law. His bill says that, "Prodded, That if the dis ability or disabilities rendering tho claimant unable to earn a support are of such a degree as would bo rated at or abovo $G and less than $12 under existing laws, they shall, nndor this act, berated the same as like pensionable dis abilities of service origin, nnd all claimants with a pensionable disability or disabilities which are of service origin would be rated at or abovo 12 per month shall be rated at $12 per month." GIVEN A SHARP REBUKE. Secretary Herbert Scores Several Nnval OHl cers in General Orders. A fire aboard tho U. S. S. Atlnnta, lying at Norfolk last month, brought to tho attention of the Navy Dopartmout through n Board of Inquiry appointed to find out who was re sponsible, culminated in tho issuance of an order by Socrotary Herbort last wcok, which gives a sharp robuko to tho Naval officers aboard the Atlanta. Mr. Horbort intended to order a court-martial for tho trial of the officers involved, but owing to tho fact that certain othor officers previously attached to the Atlanta, who arc bo lieved to be equally responsible with tho oflicors named iu tho report submitted to the Court of Inquiry, but who could not be reached legally, it was decided by tho Secretary of tha Navy to givo a General Order showing that the offi cers of tho Navy generally appear to bo dovot ing too much time to other matters than thoir duties. Secretary Horbort says: The neglect which resulted in tho flro appears to linvo been duo chielly. if not wholly, to a desiro on the part of those in authority on board (bo Atlnnta to get rid of the vessel as soon as possible by turn ing her over to the navy-yard authorities. Tho court properly fixe tho responsibility for the flro upon the officer hereinboro niiuicd, but it appears to tho Department, if tho evidence is to bo relied on, tlint olhora not named in tho report of the court are indirectly responsible therefor, through Ciireleisiie.9 in nut making a proper inspection of the ship before anil nftcr she win placed out of communion. Tiio Department refrains from natn inir such persons in this General Ordoronly in con sideration of the faet that the court failed to fix the incnsiiroof their responsibility for the nclion. After mentioning Capt. Bartlett and Chiof Engineor Inch by name, Mr. Herbert concludes with tho following, which will give tho Navy a general fthakiug up, and has issued nn order amending tho Naval ltegulations-so as to pro vide for moro rigid inspection aud reliable re ports : Under all the circumstances above stated thoofll ccm named in the report are responsible for tho lire nnd for the condition in which the .hip was found, and are liciily deserving- of a court-martial. It is only bfcnu.-iu of the fuel that it would be difficult, if not iinpractic.ihle, to bring- to trial all of the parties whom the Department deems responsible, and in soma tnenbure because of the opinion ex pressed by the Court of Inquiry that no further proceeding) are necrssnry, that furthor judicial ptocecdings are not instituted. The foregoing Goneral Order is published to the service and will be read to the officer and crew of every vcmsel of the Navy in commission, as re quired by Article 3t5 of the United Stales Naval Regulations. In giving this widespread circulation, the Department hopes that such a condition of afliiira as has been discovered on board the United States steamer Atlanta will never again exist on board a vessel in the American Navy. MEDICAL CONGRESS. Pan-American Doctors Assemble in Tills City for Pour Days. Tho Pan-American Medical Congress mot in tho Grand Opera Houso for four days last week, and tho business of the gathering was entered upon and continued under tho most favorable conditions of weather, attendance and public interest. Thoro wero probably about 1,000 doctors in attendance. Tho principle features of the Congress wero a visit by tho President, who also addressed the convention, the reading of various techni cal papers on interesting subjects, an exhibit of a military field hospital iu modern stylo, side meetings of different departments of medi cine and surgery, tho adoption of resolutions afTecting the prosecution of the great conti nental work of the Congress, of proper recog nition by tho Federal Government of Stato preventive medicine, etc., and a visit to tho President by tho delegates of the Congress in a body. Tho next meeting of tho Congress will bo held iu tho city of Mexico, tho dale to bo dependent upon the meeting of tho Inter national Congress in Europe ABOUT PEOPLE. Tho youngest member of tho House, Repre sentative Settle, of North Carolina, when tho time came, made an eloquent aud thoughtful contribution to tho financial debate.

In tho Senate, Mr. Stewart (Nov., Ti.) occu pied throe hours aud a half in a speech against repeal. The gist of his remarks was to tho effect that there was an, honest remedy and there was a dishonest remedy. Tho honest remedy was to rostoro stiver, or, if that could not bo done, to utilize th6 silver in tho Treas ury by issuing silver certificates on it, and by issuing enough greenbacks to reliovo tho dis tress. Tho dishonest remedy was to pas3 tho repoal bill, to sanctify tho infamous act of 1S73, and to fasten a perpetual gold standard upon tho country. During his speech tho Sonator was once in terrupted by Mr. Hoar, by a simplo inquiry concerning his own record in the Sonato on the pending question. Sonator Stewart waved his hand at the man from Massachusetts in adopro cating manner, nnd then,-clenching his fist, he shook it toward tho Massachusetts Sonator. " I decline to be intorruptod and interpolate a lot of trash in my speech," ho cried. "Tho Sonator is trying to break up tho continuity in my speech. If ho will wait until I got through he can talk as long as ho wants to." At one point Mr. Stowart paused, having noticed that few Senators wero in the Chamber or listening to him, and declared that ho could not go on with his speech unless a quorum wore present. A call of tho Senate was made, 56 Senators responded, and then tho Nevada Sonator re sumed his remarks. Iu two minutes there wore fewer Senators present than bofore. At 3:15, the Senator having disposed of his type-written manuscript, mndo another pause. He said that ho had much moro to say, but was not suro that ho could got through to-night. No one offorcd to reliovo him by moving that the Senate go into Exccutivo session or adjourn, aud so tho Senator continued. After ho had continued in this stylo for over a quarter of an hour he opened his desk, took out of it a bttndlo of papers, and proceeded to read extracts from a Now York paper of Janu ary, 1891, in condemnation of the Federal olectious bill and of tho closure rulo then pro posed. Mr. Morgan (Ala., D.), realizing that Mr. Stowart was doing this merely to sparo himself, moved to go into Executive session, and a vote resulted yeas 35, aays 23. So tho Seuato pro ceeded to Executive business, and at 4:40 ad journed till to-morrow at fcocc Wkdnksday, Sept. 0. In tho Scnato another day was spent in speech making. Affor somo routino business Mr. Voorhces called up his resolution providing for the meet ings of tho Senate hereafter at 11 o'clock. It was apparent that tho Senator from Indiana was much annoyed when ho rose, and every body was surprised whon he announced that after " full and caroful consultation with friends of the repeal bill ou this side of the Chamber, in whoso judgment I havo been accustomed to confide, and whose wishes I cannot disregard, I will ask that this resolution go ovor for tho present, believing that if wo oceupy the time of tho Scnato carefully wo will mako as much speed, perhaps, as by its adoption, until at least a later Jay." The silver Senators made an aggrcssivo move ment through Senator Morgan calling up his resolution providing for the creatiou of a joint com mil fee of both Houses to consider the financial situations Jlo-mado a long speech as to the need of some broad and comprehensive survey of the financial situation. Senator Voorhces' then'moved that tho Sen ate proceed to thocunsideralion of tho Wilson hill. After opposition on tho part of the silver Senators, and a calling of tho roll, which took until 2 o'clock, when thd bill became the order anyway. Senator StewarC resumed his speech. At 5 p. m. Mr. Yoorhoes asked the Nevada Senator if ho wished to continue his speech that evening, and upon replying in tho nega tive, moved for an Executive session. -. -After the doors were opened tho Senate, at 5:15, adjourned. In tho House tho scene was flat and stale. A wrangle over the rules occupied most of tho time. The Kyle amendment striking from tho rules tho clause making 100 members a quorum in Committee of the Whole was agreed to. Several amendments wore considered and lost, and the consideration of the codo having been completed, tho rules wero adopted with out a division. Tho House, at 3:50, adjourned until Satur day. TnuitsDAY, Sept. 7. fei tho Senate, Mr. White (Cal., D.) offered a resolution calling on tho Secretary of tho Treas ury to furnish information as to the expendi tures made under tho appropriation for the enforcement of the Chinese exclusion act and what portion of the fund is now available, aud whether any and What additional appropriation is necessary in order to carry out tho provisions of tho act. The resolution was agreed to. At 12:35 31 r. Yoorhoes moved to proceed with the consideration of tho Houso bill to re peal the purchasing clause of tho Sherman act. The motion was agreed to without division. Mr. Stowart expressed his willingness to dis continue his speech for tho present in favor of Mr. Walthall (Miss., D.). Mr. Walthall then addressed tho Senate in favor of bimetallism. Mr. Stewart then proceeded to score Mr. Voorliees for what he was pleased to consider his desertion from tho side of free coinage of silver. Oncoho paused and called for a quorum, with tho usual rosult. He was still talking at 4:15, when Mr. Daniel went ovor and whispered a word in his ear, when, to tho astonishment of all, ho announced Stewart touts ron a Quorum. that ho would now close his speech. "There aro several branches of tho subject which I have not yet touched, and which I wish to speak upon, but I will close this speech here." "Does tho Senator conclude?" Mr. Yoorhees asked, with an incredulous manner. "Yes," was tho reply.. "There is," said Mr. Voorhoos, "a largo amount of Executive buvsinc;s to bo transacted. I move that the Senate proceed to that busi ness." .j t Tho Seuato then proceeded to Exccutivo busi ness, and at 5 p. m4 adjourned until to-morrow. Friday; Sept. 8. In tho Sennte the policy of tho silver mon is ono of delay. Senator Faulkner eloquently delivered a speech, that was but a pare of tho plan of tho silver men to kill time, although the Senator declared himself in favorof ropeal, in tho oveut that a vote can be reached. His proposed amendment indicates a disposition to delay final action. Every proposed amend ment is an excuse for furthor debate and time killing roll-calls. It would seem that the Sonate must adopt a closuro rule boforo unconditional repeal can bo accomplished. After Mr. Faulkner closed his speech tho floor was taken by Mr. Turpio (Ind., D.), who addressed tho Seuato in favor of the principle of bimetallism. Mr. Jones (Ark., D.) was f tho next speaker. Ho would vote against the' pending bill and would resist its enactment into law as long as possiblo unloss if was coupled with somo moos- W.'ll r' uro recognizing silver and providing for an ex pansion of tho volume of tho country's money. Then, ns a suggestion was made to proceed to Exccutivo business, Mr. Halo (Me., E.) mado a short speech, in which ho suggested that Mr. Yoorhees should not consent to so early nn adjournment .i t was then 3:40), but should require Sonators to go on with tho dis cussion until a rcasonablo hoar of adjourn ment, and a few moro suggestions in the samo vein. Mr. Voorhces took oflonso at tho re marks, aud scored tho Sonator from Maine. Tho closing incident of the day's session was rounded off by a little passago between Mr. Al drich (E. I., R.) and Mr. Stowart (Nov., E.) over tho demonetization act of 1873; and whon that was finished, tho Seuato went iuto Exccu tivo session, and at 4:15 adjourned until tomorrow. Satuedat, Sept. 9. In tho Senate, Mr. Toller mado tho only speech of the day. The presence of a quorum was demanded whon ho began hi3 speech, aud lator in the afternoon another call was Mb. Faulkner. mado. On the whole, howover, much attontion was given to Mr. Toller's speech, the main 1 point of his argument boing an attempt to ' provo that the financial troubles were not duo to tho Sherman law. At 3:50 Mr. Toller was still spoaking. Mr. Voorheos interrupted him to move an Exccu tivo session, and tho silver Sonator gladly yielded. In tho House, the attendance was small and the interest weak. Several unimportant reso lutions wero offered and referred. Mr. Meiklcjohn (Neb.. 11.) asked consent for tho immediato consideration of n resolution calling on tho Secretary of the Interior for in formation .13 to the number of claims allowed, disallowed, or suspended for ponsions under the disability act. Mr. Martin (Tnd., D.) ob jected, and tho resolution was referred. At 12:30 the Houso adjourned. Monday, Sept. 11. In tho Senate, thero wero 10 Democrats and 16 Republicans when tho proceedings opened. Mr. Dolph presented a remonstrance against tho execution of tho Chinese exclusion act from tho Oregon Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and ho said that this peti tion illustrated what ho had said the other day, that much of the criticism of tho Geary act came from persons entirely unfamiliar with it; in this caso Ire pointed out wherein the Conference was mistaken ns to tho require ments of the law. Referring to the bill recently introduced in tho Houso to extend tho requirements for one year, Mr. Dolph declared that he would have no objection to that extension if tho Chinese- Six Companies would advise tho Chinese to regis ter. Mr. Pugh addressed the House in opposition to tho bill before the Senate. At the end he hinted at filibustering as a means to enable tho opponents of repeal to "stand upon their convictions." Mr. Toller then finished his speech of tho day before. The Senate, at 5:05, after a short Executive 6CS3.0D, adjourned uutil to-morrow. In tho House there was less than 100 mom be rs at the opening. Mr. Murray asked for tho imrnediato consideration of a joint rasolu tion appropriating $200,000 to enable tho Sec retary of War to purchase rations and medi cines, and distribute thorn among the sufferers from the August cyclones along tho South At lantic coast. Mr. Kilgoro objected, and tho resolution was referred. Tho Houso, at 12:4.0, adjourned uutil to-morrow. SUFFERED FOB COUNTRY, Hut Is Unfortunate Enough to jLIvo In Another Tand. Editor National Tribune: I see in a recent issue that there is danger of the pen sions of Union veterans who are living; out side of the United States being cut off, for reason of their place of residence. As I am one of these comrades, I would like to cite my own experience as a protest against such an outrage. When the war broke out I wa3 the only son of a widowed mother with one daughter 15 years old, and no home, no property, and not a dollar. We resided nbont two miles southeast of Leroy, N. Y., aud the 105th N. Y. was then being recruited at Leroy. This was in the Winter of 18G1, and several business men of tho town asked me why I did not enlist. I said I could not leave my invalid mother; but they told mo if I enlisted I would get 100 bounty, and the County Commis sioners (one was named Robinson) would look after my mother aud see that sho did not want for the necessaries of life, and if I got killed she would get a pension sufficient to keep her from want. So, ou Feb. 1, 1SG2, at Leroy, N. Y., at the age of 17 years aud eight months, 1 en listed in Co. D, 105th N. Y. From that day to this my mother has been an invalid, with- lout one cent of assistance from the Town, County, State, or Government. The rest of my history goes with the regi ment to Hatcher's liun, Va., where, at about 4 p. m., in a charge near a small stream and cabin, defending the colors of the 91th N. Y., I was shot down, the ball going in at the top of my right pocket and coming out and grsiziug the backbone, aud breaking off the tvt6 lowest short rib.s, making a wound that, with the best of care, was a running sore for two years, and which kept me in the hospital until after the war was all over aud my regiment had gone home. Aud after I was discharged, and still on crutches, I applied for that promised pen sion, and was granted the magnificent sum of $2 per mouth, that myself and invalid mother, who gave her all to her most gener ous country, might roll in peace and plenty the rest of our dear lives. About 18S0 1 was advised by the Examin ing Surgeon to apply for increase of pen sion, Baying I was fully entitled to $8 per month. I went before a Board of Examin ers at Oil City, Pa., and as I could then walk without crutches, they agreed that I was entitled to more than when I could not walk, so I got a magnificent rise of 2 more. I enlisted uuder false pretenses made to me, and misrepresentations and promises which wero never fulfilled. After 1 got iu I could not get out. Lator I was persuaded tojgo to Australia, through misrepresenta tions and promises which were never ful filled, through no fault of mine, and after I got there I could not get back again. I am an American citizen, registered on the American Consul's book, and claim pro tection from that officer under his flag. Now, why should I lose my pension, which barely keeps my poor mother in medicine, and who has had to have medical aid for over 30 years? Aud why, in the name of God and humanity, cannot I have my check signed over to go direct from the Pension Office to my mother, instead of coming 23,000 miles, round trip, and taking five mouths before she gets it ?

Gft., where tboro was a terrific battle fought. It is a bright silver stnr, ns large an a silver dollar. The following Inscription in plain letters is on it: "Benjamin Dsy, Co. C, 131th Reg't. N. Y. V." In tbe center, encircling Co. O, is a crescent. The star nnd n cntchpin, showing that it was worn on tho lapol of tho coat or vest. Mr. Worley discovered it while plowing-. It is not in tho least corroded end wears n bright polish. If Comcndo Day or any of his bcira would like to communicAlo with Mr. Worley, a latter nddrcssed care of tho Marietta Journal will roach him. Gen. Howard seems to be as ready for nn emer gency in time of penco as bo was in time of war. In one day atn Reunion of old soldiers in Cnldwell, O., hold very recently, he delivered threo stirring: speeches, and at midnight on tho samo dnto ho started on his return journey to New York City. The home of the late " Mother Lee," near Phila delphia, was rich in testimonials of the regard nnd nflection In which she was held by thousands of brave soldiers. A letter written D7 Dr. Vnnder kicft, of the hospital service, after the battle of An liotnm.says: "Mrs. Leo's untiring efforts In behalf of our pntriot soldiers have won the love nnd esteem of all to whom she has administered." Chaplain Slonn, In n letter from Antictnm. wrote: "None of the newspaper notices tell half the story of her good works. Many that suffered hero will lonjj remember her kindness. She labored harder and did moro to allovlnte tho pnina and sufferings of tho wounded nt Antictnm than any three others." A testimonial sisrned by tho wounded In Ward B, Sixth Division of the General Hospital at Gettysburg, enlis her another mother to them nil, and asks the blessings of Heaven upon her head. Gov. "William "McKinley, jr.. of Ohio, has decided to drop tho "jr." from his name at the end of his present term of ofllce. He would have done so im mediately nfter the death of his fnlher, who had borne tho same nnme, but it was held by some that ns ho was elected ns "William McKinley. jr.," somo complications might follow a ohnnge of his signature. His nnme will be printed William Mc Kinley on the ballots this Fall. Capt. Jesse McNeill, who commanded the Con federate detachment which captured Gens. Crook nnd Kelley in Cumberland.

Lew Wallace Is painstaking In the extreme, with the patience which a gifted Frenchman has called n synonym for genius. The amount of tireless research nnd careful investiga tion which wont into "Bon Hur" can, perhaps, only bo fully appreciated by the author himself. It was n gracious rewnrd of his toil whon he found that scholars and travelers willingly testified to tho nceurncy of his descriptions of Eastern life nnd surroundings. This is the moro remarkable ns the author did not cross tho ocean nnd visit the locali ties until nfeer tbe completion of his greatest work. We may consider it the greatest, because it is most probable that ilia fame will rot upon the "Tale of the Christ," of which 500.0CO copies have been sold in the United Stntcs alone. It has had Urge sales in other inugUHges, but from thee there is neither report nor profit to the author. At that time wa had no Internationa copyright law. One has now been passed, and the new book, "Tho Prince of India," will be amply protected. Tho Secretary of Wnr has just issued to Capt. Lee Nutting, Into of the 61st N.Y., the Congres sional medal of honor for distinguished services in the fight at Todd's Taveru, on May 8, 1304. Tills affair was named by the regiment the "cracker box fight," because crncker-i were being distributed to the men when tho engagement began. Capt. Nutting led ft charge of ins company upon the enemy, in which he was siiot through the lungs nod went down. It lias alwnys been considered Hint Capt.
