Tl Third Day's Business Scselon of the
National Photographic Association
Trleeal Papers and Dlicuiiloni-Gene
ral Business.
Tlio third day' business session of the Na
tional Photographic Asociatlon of the United
Elates began at ten o'clock this morning in the
basement ef Horticultural Hall, President Bo
gardus in the chair.
The President exhibited an old daguerreotype
camera which had been procured for the use of
the association of Dr. Dickson by Mr. Gallo V.
(Jheston. Tuts was made at the time that Da
guerre conducted his experiments.
Mr. M. A. Root was introduced, who exhibited
the first daguerreotype ever made in the State
of Pennsylvania. It was made by Mr. Saxton,
who was at the time employed in the United
States Mint In Philadelphia. When the results
of Daguerre's experiments were published in
the papers Saxton read them in the morning,
and in the afternoon made the picture with a
cigar box, an opera glass lens, and a Seldlltz
powder box la which to fume the plate.
Mr. Root also exhibited' other daguerreotype
plates, showing the progress of the art at dif
ferent dates, which were the property, and bor
rowed from the rooms, of the Historical Society.
A very early photograph was also shewn, made
in the year 1S42.
A first attempt on silk was exhibited, which
was made by Mr. Southworth, of Boston, who
was present at the meeting of the association,
and lecognized the picture, though he did not
know that it was to be exhibited.
Several other mementos and historical relics
connected with the art were shown, which Mr.
Root said he intended to donate to the Historl
. nl Society.
The President then read his yearly address,
which expressed great gratification at the pre
sent standing of the association and of the art.
The association has given us an opportunity to
compare our work with that of others. It has
put down the stlflsh man and put up the gene
rous. We are now proud of being members of
the association. The time can be remembered
when we were ashamed of the craft. We now
compare favorably with the European members
of the profession. It is a good thing that there
are so many young men in the craft, for in that
is the promise of great effects. Who can tell
what wonders will be exhibited by the photo
graphers ten years hence? Photography is nww
one of the indlspensables. Too many photo
graphers are now doing too many varieties of
work, and they cannot expect to succeed well
in all. The aim of the profession should be
high, and no member should do anything to
deerade it.
Mr. W. J. Baker, of Buffalo, was then called
upon, who gave, with the aid of blackboard
diagrams, a description of his method of light
ing the sitter and of the effects which he pro
duced. Mr. Johnson, of Scranton, being called npon,
gave a description of his peculiar method of
working in out-door photography.
Tee report of the Committee on Apprentice
ship appointed last year was called for and read
by the Secretary.
The report stated that bound apprenticeship
is very unpopular in all departments of trade,
and boys when bound out do not take the same
interest in the affairs of their employers as they
do when they know that the retention of their
situation depends upon his good behavior. The
committee recommend that a three-years' ap
prenticeship should be agreed npon by the
If a student serves that time he should receive
a diploma from his employer, the blank forms
of which should be supplied by the association.
No fixed rate could be agreed npon on account
of the difference in the cost of living in different
localities, but recommend that a small rate be
paid first, which should be increased afterwards.
The employe, if for any just cause he should
wish to stop his course of studies, should receive
an honorable certificate from his employer,
stating howlong.be had to serve. A person
presenting such a certificate could then be em
ployed by any member of the association. The
-committee recommend the formation of a pho
tographic academy for the better education of
The report was received, but, previous to
adoption, was discussed at length.
It was objected that there was no provision
made for cases where the employer himself
proved defective.
A motion was made that the report be pub
lished, and its adoption referred to the next
annual meeting.
A resolution asking that a practical retouch
ing artist be procured to explain his theory at
the afternoon session was made and passed.
A motion was made to reconsider this resolu
tion, on account of the difficulty of explaining
such a process in public, but it was voted down.
Mr. Baker, of Buffalo, gave a few remarks on
the subject of retouching.
Mr. Southworth, of Boston, Mr. Ayres, of
Buffalo, Mr. Lyman G. Bigelow, Mr. Fensltaore,
of Philadelphia, Mr. Bogardus, of New York,
and Mr. Baker, of Philadelphia, also followed
with explanations on the saine subject.
A communication was received from Mr.
Holmes, of New York, decliniug to serve as
vice-president of the association.
A motion was made that the resignation
should not be accepted. Agreed to unani
mously. .
Mr. Holmes made a short address, giving the
reasons why the resignation had been presented,
and thanking the association for the honor of
the office, but expressing regret that the re
signation had not been accepted.
A motion was made by Mr. Spencer that at
the next exhibition the exhibitor or a picture
exhibit also the negative from which the pic
ture is made, so that it can be seen what class
of negatives make the best pictures.
A notice was given of a change in the institu
tion, to be acted ou at the next meeting, pro
viding that all officers be henceforward elected
by ballot.
Adjourned until 3 P.M.

Music Hath No Charms. Three Italians,
named respectively Piedro de Gillo, J. Antonio,
and Joseph Piscarneni, the two former fiddlers
and the latter a harpist, struck up a dulcet strain,
at 9 o clock yesterday mornlnir. in Bauk street,
and kept at it steadily for one hour. In this
brief space more blunders were made in the ac
counts of the various firms than had hitherto
occurred in years. The proprietors one by one
admonished these zealous troubadours that they
must cease, but they courageously held their
own. Finally they were driven out of Bank
streetbut.tto the horror of the firms in question,
they appeared in Strawberry street, on which
their establishments have a front, and struck
their instruments revengefully. Upon this they
were arrested and fined by au alderman.

Twenl jtadghth Anniversary of the AmerU
can Institute of Homoeopathy The
Woman Question Before the Institute
They are Admitted Members.
The Institute began its fourth day's session at
0 o'clock this morning, in the usual place, with
Dr. J. J. Youlin, of Jersey City, in the chair.
After the reading of a few announcements
Dr. N. R. Morse, of Salem, Mass., arose and
Mr. President, I desire to call the attention of the
meeting to tbe constitution of ttils body. In It is
contained nothing In regard to female physicians,
mice 8th of the by-laws prescribes on what condi
tions a physician may be admitted a niemoer of this
institute. The article lu question says nothing
whatever as to the sex or color, and according to its
reading a female or colored man la entirely eligible
to membership here, provided he complies with the
other quantitations which we are all required to
possess. Now we can alter the ht -laws by a vote of
the irajority of those present. In Boston, ou June
the 9th, lw9, a resolution was adopted by the insti
tute reading thus:
Jitmlvrd, That properly qualified physicians, men
or women, are eligible to membership of the Ameri
can Institute of Homwopathy.
Now there has b-en some doubt about this.
The constitution does not exclude females; the by
laws say nothing about It, the Institute has virtu
ally resolved to admit females to membership, an1
In view of these considerations and In order to put
tno matter beyond all donbt I now move that,
artltle ninth of the by-laws be anicnded so as to
distinctly carry out the Intention of the Boston re
solution. Dr. McManus, of Baltimore I move to lay the
resolution on the table.
Dr. H. M. Smith, of New Jersey I do not see
the necessity of pressing this matter just at pre
sent. The Bureau of Statistics have several
amendments to the by-laws, which will be duly
reported, and the question about the admission
of females will be one of them. I therefore
hope that Dr. Morse will withdraw it at present,
and let the subject come np at the proper time.
Dr. Morse then withdrew his motion for the
Dr. C. H. Von Taylor, of Ilarrlsburg. pre
sented and read an extract of his paper on an
"Operation for the removarof an abdominal
fibroid tumor."
Dr. J. 8. P. Lord, of Poughkeepsie, from the
Bureau of Anatomy, Physiology, and Hyglone,
presented the report of the bureau and an article
of bis own on the "Physiological significance of
a cell of three parts."
Dr. Smith here presented the report of the
Bureau of Statistics, and in it was contained
the amendment making the alteration of article
9 of the by-laws, admitting female physicians.
The report was received, and the recommenda
tion of the bureau was unanimously adopted.
The result was, of course, applauded.
After the transaction of business ot no public
importance, the meeting proceeded to take up
the resolutions of Dr. Verdi, whlcn were offered
yesterday, and which were made the special
order for to-day at 10 o'clock.
ur. Verdi addressed the meeting on ms reso
Dr. Pembcrton Dudley, of Philadelphia, said
that he was not yet prepared to discontinue the
orations, but he was in favor of guarding the
institute. The oration is a valuable aid to us.
By it the public are taught our principles, and
he thought that nothing would be gained and
much lost by abolishing it, even if an orator
now and then delivers sentiments which are not
held in general acceptance.
Dr. Dudley here offered the following: as a
substitute for the resolutions of Dr. Verdi:
Resolved. That a committee or three be appointed
at each annual meeting, the chairman of which shall
be a resident or the county In which the next meeting
is to be held, who shall examine the address to be
delivered, and report whether "approved" or "dia
approved," and such report shall be in order at any
time after the conclusion of the President's opening
address, and no address disapproved oy tne commit
tee shall be delivered from the platform or the Insti
tute, except by a vote of the majority thereof.
This resolution was voted down.
Dr. Koch then presented the following as an
Resolved. That the "resident physicians" of the
places of meeting of the future sessions of the In
stitute are not expected to give a public entertain
ment to Its members.
This was ruled as being out of order as an
amendment, but might be offered as an original

following substitute:

This was voted down, and the resolutions of
Dr. Verdi being put they were adopted by a
large majority.
Dr. verdl nere addressed tne meeting ana in

claims of Cleveland, Ohio, and Dr. Koch read

sary to go to Washington, in order to counteract
the influence ot nouicropatny witn uongress
He stated in this connection that the allopathic
physicians last winter utterly disgraced them
selves, tbe police having had to be called In.

A letter from St. Johns, N. F., says: "Infor
mat ion nas Deen received oi tne total loss of a
smau coasting scnooner, witn forty souls on
board. She left St. Johns for Old Pelican, In
Trinity bay, and forty men of the crews of the
Niinrod and Hector took passage In her. The
poor fellows were inhabitants of Old Pelican,
and returning to their homes with the proceeds
of a successful voyage. They are nearly all
married men with families. The unfortunate
vessel has not since been beard of, and on May
23 part of her cargo was picked np at sea. It is
supposed she struck a low iceberg during the

Baltimore, June 9. The International Typc
graphical Lnson met at nine o'clock this morn
ing, Mr. Hammond presiding.
A resolution was adopted providing that no
money shall, under any circumstances, be in
dorsed on travelling cards.
Mr. Fitzwilllams, of Washington, moved to
expungo the resolution passed by the Albany
Convention in reference to the attempt to force
npon Columbia Union L. F. Douglass, an avowed
'rat," etc.
An exciting discussion ensued, the sentiment
of the majority being evidently to lay the mat
ter on the table.
The President finally decided the motion to
expugn could not be entertained.
Mr. Fitzwilllams, in a personal explanation)
stated on behalf of Columbia Union that Pey
had never desired to force this negro ques
tion on the International Union. Two
years ago at Albany a delegate
from Columbia Union introduced the subject
without Instructions to that effect, and his mo
tion was to relieve Columbia Union of the onus
of having originated the question.
A resolution that the Albany Convention did
not intend to censure the Washington Union by
the resolution passed in reference to L. F.
Douglass was passed by a large majority.
The convention then went into secret session.

Letter of the Hon. It. F.
CructNHATi, Jane 9 The Qazellt prints a
letur from the Hon. B. F. Wade, on which its
announcement wai based that Mr. Wade would,
nader certain circumstances, accept the Repub
lican nomination for Governor. It publishes
this, it says, because an'effort is making t Im
press on the public mind that Mr. Wade desires
to enter the cokttst for the nomination. Mr.
V ade says he has received many communica
tions like the one to which the late one was
a reply, and to which he had replied that he
w ould not accept the nomination were it offered
to him.
He says, on reflection, however, he was satis-
fled this was puttlpg the case too strongly,
when I remember, he says, how firmly and
generously the great Republican party at Ohio
stood by me for eighteen years, during the most
turbulent and perilous period of our history.
Should the Republican convention consider that
it is essential to success to order me again into
the fleld.I could not disobey their mandate wlthn
out base ingratitude, If not dereliction of prln-
He then simply a'luded to the course of the
Democratic party, indicating lu unfitness to
control pablic affairs, and says be cannot doubt
that the contention will be aVe to find many
more efficient standard-bearers than h'mself,
and such was bis most sincere hope and desire.
