Engineer Vnn Harm's Report on the Mllbarn Reservoir. Robert Van Bure.t, Chief Engineer of Brooklyn, to-day submitted to City Works Commissioner White a report on the big Mllburn reservoir, practically whitewashing Contractor Edward Free), of the charges that the bottom of the receptacle was Ilk a sieve. Van Buren says that " It should be borne In mind that a certain amount of leakage Is always expected at first, which gradually decreases." He also states that the puddling of the reservoir Is of good material, but was not proper ly manipulated. The work on the reservoir was begun In November, 1892. The contract price was 1762,678. The reservoir was expected to have a storage capacity of 400.000,000 gallons. When it was about completed a test waj made and It was found that the work was practically a failure. The water worked through the bottom of the reservoir almost as fast as It was pumped In. Van Buren says in his report that this leakage has been reduced to 4.600,000 gallons. Contractor Freel was paid In Instalments on the work as It pro gressed, but there is still some money due. This money. Van Buren says, will not be paid until the work on the new reservoir Is pronounced by the, engineers to be satisfactory. H0GAN SAYS "NOT GUILTY." Denies that Poor People Do Not Get Jnsttee nt Ills Court. In the Essex Market Police Court to day Justice Hogan made the following answer to Dr. Parkhurst's statement that poor people were compelled to pay for Justice In that court: "As far as I am concerned, the poor people having business In this court have been most considerately treated. Now take the push-cart peddlers for In stance. I have maintained throughout that these men should be most leniently dealt with. "I have myself sent word to Capt. Cortrlght and other captains of precincts within the Jurisdiction of this court sug gesting that they should Instruct their men to be lenient In their treatment of this class of offenders. "While they may violate the letter of the law the times have been such that the utmost consideration should be shown them. Dr. Parkhurst's remarks certainly can have no reference to my administration of the affairs of this court." Justice Koch, who had business In Ksex Mnrket Court to-day, said In reference to the charges: "As far as I am concerned there Is no ground for them. I do my duty to all; I treat the rich and poor alike." NOT DUE TO VACCINATION. Hrnlth Oflleinl Hay Young Smith Dleil from Other Cnnsea. Brooklyn Health officials to-day dis credited the story that Charles W. Smith, the eleven-year-old son of Sam uel Smith, 75 Woodbine street, had died from the effects of vaccination.

Sonators Hill, Quay nnd Camoron Promise to See Them. More Thnn n Thousand Krai Work men in n Marching Due. fHy Anfocl&1f4 Pfaa ) WASHINGTON, April 21.-More than one thousand woiklngmen from Phila delphia and New Jeisey marched down Pennsylvania avenue to-day to empha size their protest against the Wilson Tariff bill. Men and women were In line marching four abreast under the Ameri can flag and fluttering banners display ing mottoes opposed to the Wilson bill. The special Baltimore and Ohio train from Philadelphia which pulled Into the depot at 11 o'clock to-day carried 070 men. This delegation was met by the company of 360 which had arrived yes terday. The depot fairly bristled with special policemen. Major Moore, the Chief of 1-ollce, with Lieut. Kelly and two sergeants, was on hand, and when the procession formed It was guided by the Lieutenant. In the front rank was carried a great silk American flag, which had been donated by John Wanamaker for the demonstra tion. Behind was a black banner with the legend In gold letters: "Non-partisan delegation of American workmen from Bristol, united In defense of their home Industries, and to prevent their transfer to nations hostile to a demo cratic or republican government." The procession filed down a cross street and turned on Pennsylvania ave nue, the principal street of the city, and marched down twelve squares to Met xerott's Hull. Many Senators and Con gressmen, walking up the avenue at thnt hour to the Capitol, eyed the parade curiously, and one of them was Senator Quay, No demonstration of any sort wan made by the spectators. Gathering In Metzerott's Hall, the committees delegated to wait upon vari ous Senators made their reports. Eph rlam Rlgg reported that Senator Voor hees, the Chairman of the Finance Com mittee in charge of the Tariff bill, had been written to, and had been called for at his house and at the Senate, but could not bf-fovmd.- Jeirs greeted this an nouncement. Delegates who had called upon Sena tors Brtce, Smith and Murphy reported that those Senators could not be found. Senator Hill had promised to meet the delegates at noon, and Senators Cam eron and Quay had promised to do all In their power to bring the memorial of the Convention to the attention of the Senate. The resolutions adopted by the Special Committee were read by Secretary M. J. Kelly. These resolutions stnted that "We, the authorized representatives of millions of American workmen, without distinc tion of party, hereby repectfully demand of our representatives In Congress of the United States that no change shall be made In existing laws that shall In any way deprive us of the capacity to earn ,the full amount of wages to which we were accustomed during the years In which there were no prospective or threatened changes in tariff laws, or firevent us from providing for our faml les better homes, better education nnd more comforts than In nny other country on the face of the globe," Then followed a memorial addressed "To the Bight Honorable Body of United States Senators," presenting for con sideration the sincere objections of the memorialists to making the Wilson Tar iff bill a law of the land. Paragraphs of grievances against this bill are then given, the first reciting that should the Wilson bill become a law Its effect will be the depreciation of all values In the United States 40 per cent, or more. Having adopted these resolutions with great enthusiasm, the meeting adjourned. Outside of the hall the delegates formed In line of march, with the Com mittee on Besolunons in the lead, and headed for the Senate. Just In front of the Peuce Monument, at the foot of the long steps leading to the Capitol, the rnnks were broken, banners were furled and left for safe keeping In charge of an adjacent book seller, and, dividing Into small parties, the worklngmen poured through the va rious entrances to the Capitol. Their Committee of Twelve went directly to the olllcc of the Sergeant-at-Arms and sent a messenger to notify the Pennsyl vania Senators of their presence. Senators Cameron and Quay came out to the marble room back of the Senate chamher and there met the delegation. Several other Senntors were attracted by the unusual display of badges al most within tho precincts of the Cham her, and drew near. There was no speech making. The resolutions were handed to the Senators by Chalrmnn George Walsh, At the suggestion of Senator Cameron, the Committeemen signed their names to the petition and resolutions. In the Senate. Senator Do.ph yielded to Senator Quay for the presentation of the memorial, nnd nlthough It was con trary to tl.e agreement for the consider tlona of the Tariff to admit any outside matter, unanimous consent was accorded to Senator Quay, and he read the papers from his seat on the floor. Close attention was given him by every one on the floor nnd In the gal leries, and, as he continued, his col league, Senntnr Cameron arose and sent to the desk nnother petition from worklngmen. which was not read. Af ter the presentation, the greater por tion of the delegates In the gallery filed out nnd Senator Dolph continued his speech. a NEW CLEARING-HOUSE. A Plan to Be I'lnnlly Derided I'pon To-Uny.
