I SEVENTH CELEBRATES.
Am from Debt, the Gnat Regiment Gtns i Splendid Drill Reception and Bill In Its Armory. TBI THOUSAND GUESTS PRESENT. Sergeons Deeorstlons for tks Orest Hall Where Brave Warriors and tho Pret tiMt of Maidens Danced. Th Seventh Regiment celehratcd last evening, the liquidation of the Indebted ness on Its armory. The event was i commemorated on a seals of grandeur never aurpaaacd In the National-Guard j history of the city. The night was divided Into two periods. From till .S0 o'clock the Immenae drill floor, which taken In nearly all the ' block from Park to Lexington avenuea and from Sixty-sixth to Slxty-aeventh streets, was given over to the review nd parade of the full regiment. After the military evolutions, there waa a re ception to thousands of guests, followed by a ball. Everything passed off with the precision e xpected from the most famous regiment In the United States. I burled benenth Southern smllax. In which flushed innjmerable Incandescent electric lights. In the middle of the room was suspended nil Immense cannon-ball of daffodils, In which fifty electric globa were hidden. Company J" ran to roses, which were heaped about the room and mixed with Southern clematis, till the warriors' rendervoua looked like a trop ical garden. The painting of Col. Apple ton, who was once the company's cap tain, was half burled under blossoms. When dancing was under way three bands were discoursing music about the building. Two thousand dancers, among whom were the prettiest of women, were on the floor at one time, and the throng wss so great as to make promenading alnwist Impossible. The House Commit tee was In charge of IJeut. Maset, and a committee of ten, assisted hy Sergt. Malor Townsend, directed the dancing. The corner-stone of the present armory was laid in October. 1877. and the build ing was completed In 1880. It cost MHi. ooo, the last payment of which was made last January. SKETCHES AT TMB SEVENTH'S CELEBRATION. The ordinarily bare drill-room was converted Into a bower of beauty. The galleries at each end were draped in plush and national flags, caught In a doien different ways. Broad bands of blue and yellow ran from the top of tho I walls over a rod at the apex of the j celling and were caught en the opposite ' wall. Suspended from the huge rafters were parti-colored banners, gathered Into various forms. At the Lexington avenue end the band stand was a mass of color, flags and bunting being beau tifully and lavishly blended. When a light breexe swept across the spacious floor a gentle swaying of the broad ribbons of color lent a dreamy effect to the splendid decorations. When the thousand men took their places for the drill, attired in their white trousers and their gay trappings, the contrast with, the rich hues above Intensified the beauty of the whole. Visitors to the parade were admitted i on special tickets. Fully 3,000 were in ; their seats when the regiment, under I command of Col. Daniel Appleton, I marched upon the floor at 8 1'. M . Major Klpp commanding the second bat talion and Major Abrams the third. The companies formed In a square, close to the wall on each side. Then Brlg.-Gen.

Bet Fire to a Saloon and Created Scenes of Panic and Excitement Among Tenement families. Saloon-keeper William Friedman's bar tender was taking some whiskey from a barrel yesterday at 3 P, M., when suddenly there was a dull report, fol lowed by a sheet of flame that reached the celling. The bartender's hand and arm were badly burned. The men who were In the saloon rushed out. One of them had enough presence of mind to turn In a fire alarm. Friedman rushed upstairs and gave the alarm to the five families living there. By this time the entire lower and part of the second floor were In flames, and the halls were till.. I with smoke that the tenants on the upper floors had to take to the i fire escapes. 1 A family named Moskovltx occupied ' the third floor. Moskovltx yelled to hie wife to take one child and he, grabbing unjther, started down the fire escape. : In the 'onfuston their twelve-year-old son was forgotten. Toe boy became so I badly fi Ighlened th it he crawled under a bed. v here he was foun 1 later by two t firemen He had been overcame by the I smoke. He was taken to a drug store, : where he revived. All the other occu pants of the building were helped to saf.t.v. , On the top floor the Berger family 1 lived. Their five-year-old son was sick 1 In bed, and to remove him and take him 'down the ftre-escapc wna no eiey task. After wrapping him up In blankets the ! father placed the lad on his shoulder and I started down. When he reached the , ground the crowd thut had collected gave him a hearty cheer, i In the snluon where Hie explosion oc t currao the bras- rail on the bur was twisted out of shape, the mirror behind the bar wus smashed In a thnusnnd 1 pieces, the glasses on the shelves were I knocked off and the whole front of the .room wus blown out.

AND ANSWERS QUESTIONS PDT TO HIM Give Him Just Legislation, He lavs, and tks Saloon-Keeper Will Deal Justly by BotUtv. Morrla Tekuiskv put on a frock coat and a white necktie and went uptown last night t . talk to the reformers of the Municipal Conferences about the saloon business. He took Mrs. Tekulsky with him, and there was a contingent from the Liquor Dealers' Association to see that Morris got fair play. It might also be added that there were six police men In the hall, but they had nothing to do. Mr. Tekulsky Is the President of the State Liquor Dealers' Association and a delegate to the Constitutional Conven tion. Besides, he possesses the proud distinction of having succeeded P. Dlvver, P. J., in the saloon business on Psrk Row. The meeting was held at No. 312 West Fifty-fourth street. Richard Watson Gilder, poet and editor of the Century magaslne, presided. Many ladles were present, and many men with views and an Itching to express them. Mr. Tekulsky was a little late and thus lost the opportunity to open the debat Robert Orabam, the Secretary of the Church Temperance Society, led off with a sneering remark about Mr. Tekulskys absence, and then told of his objections to the saloons and his Ideas of a satisfactory substitute for them. There was a disposition on the part of some of the audience to sneer at Mr. Tekulsky at flrst, but he was very well received and got a fair share of ap plause. He give Mr. Graham a sly dig In opening by saying that he had not come there to Indulge In personalities, but to discuss the saloon question. "I want nothing English in my busi ness," he said. "If we are to have cof fee saloons let us start them on an American plan." Mr. Tekulsky said he was a practical man and that leading papers to conven tions of reformers was not In his line. His Invitation In this case, however, he took as an acknowledgment that a liquor, dealer Is engaged In a lawful business and so is entitled to be heard. "The saloon Is not what It ought to be and can be," he declared, "but it Is a great Improvement over what It waa, and under right and reasonable legisla tion It would and could be greatly ad vanced." In the flrst place, he would have "the orists, reformers and fresh legislators" keep their hands off the saloon. "If there Could be legislation of a rea sonable character," said Mr. Tekulsky, "If the better class of saloon-keepers and there are a host of law-abiding, honorable men In the saloon business felt reasonably sure of not being called upon to confront sudden and sometimes exasperating and expensive legal re- aulrements, there would be a greater In ucement to curtail objectionable fea tures and add very desirable ones." Some people, Mr. Tekulsky declared, condemned the saloon-keeper for making his place handsome, well lighted and at tractive, but even the churches are as attractive as their congregations can af ford to make them. "And sometimes even we are asked to help out when they cannot keep to ths front," he added, "and our motives should not be Questioned when, as usual. we cheerfully respond." He objected to the spy system, declar ing that the man who will lie to entrap , a saloon-keeper Into violating the law will perjure himself In court, and should not be believed. "We ask for fair treatment that the laws be reasonable and equitable," he said, "and then sel(-lnterest, the commer cial interest and business competition will go far towards removing what are now called the objectionable features of the saloon. It Is certain that no man can desire to advance the character and Influence of the every-day man's club so much aa those who are engaged In con ducting It, those who have invested their capital and their time In It. And no one can be expected to do so much for its de- I velopment as they will If they are given a iulr chance. If society will deal Justly with the saloon-keeper, the saloon-keeper will deal-Justly by society. Self-interest, f'ltde and common sense, besides hia esp ial, bind blm to such a course." Chnlrman Glider thanked Mr. Te kulsky for his frank and Interesting re marks, but wanted to know If he thought that the coalition of the saloon and poli tics was an advantage to either. Mr. Tekulsky denied that the saloon waa the power behind the throne In politics. "Olve ua Just laws," he aald, "and no law will be satisfactory to the people which does not allow the saloons to open during certain hours on Sunday, and you will eliminate politics from the Honor business." (J. B. Waldron, of the Voice, favored State control of the liquor business, and told of a town In South Carolina where GOO saloons had been replaced by GO State dispensaries. "How many 'speak easles' are there In that town to replace the other 560 saloons?" asked Mr. Tekulsky, and there was a laugh from the audience. Rev. Palmer S. culvert said there should be no saloons. They were evil and nothing but evil, and he wanted war to the knife against them, and the knife to the hilt. He referred to Rev. Dr. Ralnsford's church-saloon plan, and declared that the church had every thing to lose by such an alliance. Then he aat down beside Mr. Tekulsky and Mr. Glider, and the three cracked Jokes that made the dominie grow very red with laughter. After the formal speeches questions were In order, and a dozen men Jumped up to question Mr. Tekulsky. Mr Cul vert wanted to know how many saloons had closed on account of the hard times. "About two thousand." was the in awer, "and the other five thousand are ready aa soon as anybody oomes along to pay for the chattela." Mr. Graham asked about Tekulsky's I remark before the Lexow Committee i that "there was no place else to go,'1 except to Mr. Croker, when he wanted a nomination to the Constitutional Con vention. "I am not here to discuss politics." I smilingly answered the autocrat of Park row. T. A Fulton, of the Excise Reform Association, also wanted Mr. Tekul sky's views on some bills In Albany regulating the number of saloons and divorcing the granting of excise licenses from politics. "I would favor something of that kind, but not us the bills have It," answered Tekuiskv. "Let me draw a bill." The disposition to worry Mr. Tekuiskv was so apparent that a man In the back I of the hall got up and protested against 1 it as unfair. He declared that the liquor 1 drink rs were worse than the liquor sellers, "as they made saloona of themselves."

Speaker of the House of Itep resentativea, was to-night appointed United States Senator to succeed the late Alfred H. Colquitt. Not a word had passed between the (Jovernor and the 8peaker, and .fudge Crlsp'a name had not even been presented formally to the Oovernor. In making the appointment Gov. Nor then retires from the Senatorial contest. Senator Colquitt's term would have ex pired March 3, 1896. The next Legisla ture will therefore hnve to elect a suc cessor to Judge Crisp, nnd In all proba bility he will succeed himself. Senator Gordon's term will expire March 3. 1S97. CHARLES T. CRISP. The appointment of Mr. Crisp was In tended by Gov. Northen, ss an answer to President Cleveland's veto to the Seigniorage bill. It waa not Intended to make the ap pointment until next week. Aa a pre liminary to It Gov. Northen announced to-day that the appointee, whoever he would be, would be In strict sympathy with every declaration of the Demo cratic platform. Not only that, but he would have to agree with the construc . tlon of the platform which was placed ' on It by the people of Georgia, and other ' Southern States during the last cam paign. In other words, the Governor, while not settled as to the person whom I be intended to appoint, had determined that the auccessor of Senator Colquitt I should be a man who agreed with the views held by Senator Colquitt on the great public questions of the day. Gov. Northen la himself a hearty ad vocate of the "Indiacrlmlnatlng use of both gold and silver as standard money metals of the country," aa pledged by the platform. It la but natural, there ! fore, be said, that his appointee should be selected from those who are of the aame line of thought, particularly as such position Is not only directed by the party a pledge, but emphasised by the overwhelming sentiment of the people of this State. When the Oovernor read the veto message tills evening he at once called his special political friends Into counsel, and after stating to them that Georgia stood almost to a unit against the veto, went into consideration of what waa best to do. The Oovernor flrst declared nla own retirement from the Senatorial race, In order that In making the selec tion Just Imposed upon him he might not he embarrassed by personal con siderations. After going all over the names It was concluded that, as Speaker Crlap had ad hered to the policy which prevailed among Georgia Democrats, he was the man to appoint. Thereupon the Governor sent the follow. ng telegram to Speaker Crisp: "Charles F. Crisp, Speaker House of Representatives, Washington, D. C. : "I have appotnteo you to fill the va cancy In the United States Senate caused by the death of Senator Alfred H. Col quitt. I beg you will at once tender me your resignation, so that I can forward your commission In time for you to take four place In the Senate ana take part n the discussion and settlement of the tariff measure soon to come before the Senate. "I am pleased to tender you this ap pointment because your distinguished services In the House have commanded tho admlra'lon and Indorsement of our people, and 1 am quite sure my action will be most heartily applauded by them. "W. J. NORTHEN, Governor." WASHINGTON, March 30,2.A.M.-lt was after midnight when Gov. Northen's telegram offering the Junior Senatorshlp of Georgia to Speaker Crisp reached him. He was much surprised, the offer coining wholly unsought and unexpect edly. It Is understood that Mr. Crisp's: flrst thought after recovering from the , surprise Incident to the receipt of the ! telegram, was to wire the Oovernor i that he could not accept the high of fice tendered, but he finally decided that he would wait until morning. The flrst Intimation came to him In the form of congratulatory telegrams. He had actually began writing a telegram of declination when he decided that the matter "would keep until morning." A number of the Speaker's friends called at his hjtel, and one little purty of Southern Congressmen made their way to his room, but did not succeed In getting In. Judge Crisp had retired and contented himself with conversing with them through the closed door. He was non-committal. In the speculation as to who would succeed Speaker Crisp Kenton McMillan, of Tennessee, Is most frequently men tioned. He Is a good parliamentarian, Is a rock-ribbed Democrat, an enthusiastic tariff reformrr, and Is sound on financial I questions. Willi. mi L. Wilson's Illness has probably prevented his being con sidered in this connection. Mr. Hynum, of Indians, and Mr. Hatch, of Missouri, would probably be candidates. The statement thai the appointment of Crisp Is a slap at President Cleveland for nls veto of the Seigniorage bill re celvea little consideration, for Speaker Crisp Is undoubtedly the most conferva. tlve Georgia Democrat In public l.fe upon ; .li.' s lver iiuestlun. All the ntner can ' aldates whose names nave been mn ( tloned are regarded as ardent free sliver I men. This list Includes Secretary Hoke Smith, who repeatedly urged the Presi dent to algn the Seigniorage bill. Ilefore retiring Judge Crisp tele graphed tkjv. Northen that be oOUld not give an answer before to-morrow. He also answered the congratulatory telegrams In a manner that left doubt aa to his decision. Judge Crisp said: "It was Imag.nel by the (ieorgia delegation that the Governor himself would want the place and that he would appoint some one who would st.-p down snd out of the way for h in when the Legislature meets. Gov. Nor then's telegram assurel me that he Is for me for the long term. As to my suc cessor In the chair, there are plenty of good men on our side. I suppose there will be several candidates."

He resigned that office In ISt.!, upon the offer of the Democrats nomination for Congress In the Third Georgia District, and he has served In every Congress since that dat- He was first elected Speaker of the Fifty-second Congress, and was re elected to ihe same honorable post In the present body. Mr Crisp's Senatorial ambition has for some time been known, although he re fused to permit his candidacy to be openly advocated so long as there seemed anv probability that Senator Colquitt might recover. The dead Senator la un derstood to have fuvored the Speaker for the succession. It was nardly thought, however, that Gov. Northen would select Mr. Crisp for this brief honor-the appointment lasting only un til March next -since It would crate a formidable rivalry to his own amhltlon.

The Florentines say that he Is worth 120,000, 000, all of which he made In the UniteJ States as a money broker and petroleum speculator. Originally a small storekeeper in Flor ence, Fabbrl determined to try his luck In America. He succeeded so well that he soon afterwards sent for his brother, who married an American woman, by whom he had six daughters. They were all educated here, and up to the time of their going to Italy with their uncle they did not speak a word of Italian. Kabbri, having made his fortune in thla city, tired of Its iuiiii.nl and longed for the quiet life In bis beloved Florence. He would tell his friends that America waa good enough to work In, but the life was too rupld for one who wished to settle down and live In peace. He sold out his business, and, with his six nieces, went to Florence about seven years ago. Their appearance created a great stir In that city, and his nieces were everywhere regarded as great catches, us he referred to them aa his daughters, nnd every one understood that, being childless, he Intended to make them hlH heiresses. Fabbrl at once show -d signs of gieat public spirit. He devoted a good deal of money to making Improve ments In the city. The population felt very much pleased at this, but somehow Fabbrl did not attain the popularity which he believed he should huve there. It Is said that he often complained to friends thut hla treatment In Flor ence was fur different from what he had expected, ond one of the things that annoyed him exceedingly was the erection of a public hospital Just opposite to the elegant mansion he had purchased. j Another experience be did not relish I was his treatment by the leading social club of the city. 10 which no native ex I cept a nobleman can belong.

The organisation and work of the convention allowed clearly that there was a cut and dried programme, and the most active workers were on the floor In their delegations. The organiza tion waa completed as follows: Chair man, John R Hardin; Vice-Presidents. Kdwln Balbach. John Hyland. Philip Roth, Jr., Lesser Lehman, William H. Curtis, Patrick Klynn, Ueorge Schwats walder, Henry A. Haussltng and Henry F. Phillips: Secretaries, John J. Ber tram and James R. Nugent. The Committee on Rules reported as follows: The chosen representatives of the Democratic party of the city of Newark deem It necessary to present clearly and distinctly to every voter of the city the questions to be decided by this campaign. For four years the Re publican party, with extravagance that was criminal, shattered and wasted the surplus with which the Democratic party had filled the Treasury. A parti san Republican tariff made Republican manifracturera richer and richer, low ered the wages of the worklngmen, In creased the prices of the necessities of life. A silver law that threatened to reduce to 62 cents the purchasing value of every dollar was devised for the benefit of Republican silver-mine own ers and was made a law by Republican votes. Trusts and monopolies of every kind, fostered bv the Republican tariff, sprung up all over the land. Conserva tive capital becume alarmed; credit was shaken; our gold flowed away from our shores and widespread financial ruin came upon us. The Democracy of the city of Newark Invites the votera of the municipality to an examination of Its conduct since It has been Intrusted with Its manage ment and challenges comparlaon with the methods and economies of other admin istrations Economy has been substituted I for extravagance, fidelity for falthlees 1 ness and Intelligence for Incompetency. ! Thu ool.il. o'liunl. have been liberally fostered and widely extended; the public I health has been carefully watched and i wisely conserved, and public Improve ments hnve been Judiciously promote! and advantageously accomplished. Yet I the annual burden of ihe taxpayers has i ! been lightened and the public treaaury I not depleted. Able financiering has refunded bonded 1 debts it low rates of Interest and pro Vtded sinking funds for obligations never before so protected, and haa estab Ished a tax-rate 2s per cent, lower than when the I Republican party was last In full control of all the departments of the city gov ernment. . ,, We sail th- nttentlnn of cur fellow- c'tlxens to the extremes of psrtlsanshln I now being attained under the guise of re- form.
