Waphinhtos. Aur. 27. -To-morrow the
Bouse will ileal thu death Mow to tho Rher
mnii act When ConcreBS assembled in ex
traorHnarr session on the r.th Inst., thoro
were but few men in Congress who imagined
;; that a vote could be reaohed within such a
short period. Manr of the oldest and most
experienced legislators shook their heada
- dubtintfly and pointed out how easy
it would be for the free silver
men to delay action indefinitely. The
new members who hurried to Washing
ton filled with a deslro to relleyo the country
of its financial distress, became more or less
Indifferent under the Influences of official
life at tho oapltal. Hers everything appoared
to be running along so smoothly as to ques
tion the alarming statements that eamo from
tilths business centres. Many persons in and
out of Congress wore confident that a majority
of both Housos would be found voting in
favor of the free coinage of silver whenever
that question oamo up. It was that confldonoe
on tbs part of Mr, Bland and his followers that
led to the agreement under which tho vote to
morrow Is to be taken. When tho roll Is called,
and It is found that a substantial majority has
been recorded in faver of the unconditional
repeal of the Bhorman act, there are apt to be
many claimants for the credit of bringing
about the result The influence of tho Admin
istration and the "money kings of Wall
street" will probably be cited, but the fact re
mains that Bourke Cockran originated the
plan by which the House consented to tako a
direct vote at a given time.
There aro a number of Interesting lnaidenta
In connection with this subject which oould
only be repeated by a violation of confidence.
In the early stages of the contest in the House
there was a disposition to doubt the wisdom
of Mr. Cookran's plan, and even Secretary Car
lisle considered it impraeticable when It was
first unfolded to him. Then, as it became evi
dent that the tree silver men were inclined to
make a fair compromise on the basis of Mr.
Coekran's suggestions, personal ambitions
and jealousies arose and a bold attempt was
made to deprive him of a fair share of the
credit for bringing about tho vote without fili
bustering on the part ot the free silver men.
6ome of the older members of the House were
not willing that a comparatively young mem
ber like Mr. Cookran should teach them a
lesson in parliamentary strategy.
Then it was that Secretary Carlisle was
called Into consultation. As the able and
faithful representative of tho President In
financial matters. Secretary Carlisle soon real
ized that by curbing the personal ambitions of
certain persons, and using a little diplomacy,
gratifying results might be accomplished.
After a sories of conferences on the part of the
anti-silver men and the free sllverites. in
which Mr. Cockran was forced to play a rather
Insignificant part, the final move on the part of
the friends of repeal was made at Secretary
Carlisle's residence late on the Thursday night
prior to the introduction of the Wilson hill in
the House. Secretary Carlisle on that occa
sion, arrayed in his night dress and sitting up
in bed. with a fow trusted followers at his bed
side, outlined the policy of the Administration
forces. Here is tho story of that midnight in
terview as it is told for the first tunc:
"Before the President left Washington
for Gray Gables the last time. Secretary
Carlisle, accompanied by Bourke Cock
ran and Bepresentatlve Itayner of Mary
land, drove out to ' Woodier." the
suburban home of the President. The situ
ation in the House was freely diseussod. Mr.
Cockran explained the advantages of allowing
the votes to be taken on the various ratios,
saying that the cause of repeal would be
strengthened by a division of the opposition
of the several ratios. Tho President and Sec
retary Carlisle wore somewhat in doubt as to
the practicability of the plan as outlined by
Mr. Cockran. although they recognized the
force of hit general proposition. He finally
proposed ithat he should withdraw to the
garden surrounding the Presidential cottage
and allow the President and his Secretary
ot the Treasury to consider the matter alone.
The President finally concluded that he would
be satisfied with whatever course Secretary
Carlisle might pursue, and thereupon author
ized the Secretary to do whatever he thought
beat. Thus empowered to act for the Execu
tive. Secretary Carlisle concluded that ha
would first eonsult Speaker Crisp, and after
hl return to the eitya matual friend quietly
informed the Speaker that Secretary Carlisle
desired to confer with him at the Treasury
JJeuartmont on business most urgent. The
Speaker was invited to a seat In a carriage in
waiting and was rapidly driven to the Treasury
JJecartmeat. The plan of the enmpalgn in the
Home was fully considered and a satisfactory
rsiult was reached. The Speaker left the de-
ti partment and his visit remained a secret ox-
,;; ctptto t few persons interosted.
It was late on Thursday night when Bourke
teckran heard of the conference between Sec-
1 retary Carlisle and Speaker Crisp. It was un-
dsrttooa that some definite action might be
r: expected in the House the following day. Then
it lu that Bourke Cookran declared that he
would "clve a thousand dollars for an inter
view with .leoretarv Carlisle before the House
meets to-morrow." Mr. Cockran hurried to
the Arlington.
It was past 11 o'clock. Hornet Bepresenta

If Senator Morgan and those who think as
he does shall seem to bo In the majority after
two weeks' discussion In the Senate, the
present plan Is to drop tho Wilson bill and pass
the Voorhees bill, amended so ns to provide
for a larger ure of silver. The plan contem
plates two decided steps. The first Is to re
coln the outstanding stock of sliver limitod
tenders that Is, the fractional silver coins--now
amounting to 77,tMK).00O. The half dol
lar will contain half as muoh silver as the
dollar, and the silver quarter and ten-cont
Pieces will contain their respective pro
portional parts. These will ho made
n legal tender for any amount. It is
believed that In this way an Increased uso ean
be made for the fractional coins, which aro
now limitod in their uso by tho faot that they
are a subsidiary coinage. It Is argued, too,
that threo or moro half dollars will circulate
where now one silver dollar olroulotes.
Tho sooond step Is to coin the sliver now In
tho Treason . and from tho profits to pay the
curront expenses of the Government In sliver
dollars, at the snmo time withdrawing tho one
and two dollar Tien-nrv notes as they shall
be recolvo.l for rodomption or in tho ordlpary
transactions, und replacing them with sflvor
dollars. This course it is urged, will not only
Increase tho use of silver as an aclunl money
metal, but it will also ense t lie strajn upou the
gold resorvo.
Democratic Senators who hnvoboen counted
on to vote for the unconditional repeal of the
Sherman not say that they will bring forward
the plan outlined above and will subject It to
thorough discussion. Ono of these Senators
when asked It such a plan would meet tho
approval of President Cleveland, said definitely
that it had been submitted to him, and that he
favored it, because It stopped sllverpurchases.
It would relievo the strain on the Troasury
gold, und it provldod a fund tor tho payment
of Government expenses, which aro not now
met by the receipts.
"The most serious tlonger to ho appre
hended from this plan." said this same Sena
tor, "Is lest the holders of Treasury notes
should booomo scared and attoiupt to draw
fiold on them before the bill could become a
aw, hut we think means can be found to avert
that danger. At least the plan is not open to
halt the objections that oould be raised to tho
free coinage of silver, and we may have to
choose the least of the two evils. My own
opinion is that our main difficulty will he to
get the free coinage men to accept such a
compromise."
PBTITIOX FOR CROWLBT'S rARDOX.
'Why Gen. Sleklee Iatereated Himself la Be
half or the Prlaoeer,
Washihgton. Aug. 27. Gen. Sickles says he
does not know that Gov. Flowor has pardoned
Police Sergeant Crowley, but he hopes the re
port is true. Crowley was convicted in 1SS5 ot
assaulting Maggie Morris, and was sentenced
to 18 years' Imprisonment. In referring to
the case to-night Gen. Sickles said that he
joined several other well-known gentlemen,
lnoludlng Mr. I'.lilm Boot, in signing the pe
tition for the pardon of Crowley because they
believed that the punishment, inflicted
upon him was sevore in tho light of
all the circumstances surrounding the
case. Gen. Sickles first became interested
in Crowley when the latter was quite a
lad. The General at that tlmo was endeavor
ing to servo a writ of ejectment upon Jay
Gould. He wont to the Erie I lailroa.l offices In
search ot Oould. but he had locked himself In
a room with his lawyers. Gen. Sickles made
several futile efforts to break into the room,
and finally asked Crowley, who was presont, if
he dared to climb over tho transom and servo
the paper on Mr. Gould.
The lad. after describing Mr. Oould to con
vince Gen. Sickles that he would serve the pa
per on the right man, undertook tho task. He
was hoisted over the transom, assisted by
Gen. Siokles. and the paper was duly served.
Gen. Sickles commended the boy's courage.
gave him a check for HK. and told him that
it he ever wanted any assistance to come to
him.
Years rolled on. until one morning Gen.
Sickles read an announcement in the news
papers that Police Sergeant Crowley had been
arrested for assaulting a woman on tho cast
side. A picture of the accused was also pub
lished, and the face seemed familiar. Finally
It dawned on Gen. Sickles that Police Sergeant
Crowley was the boy who went through the
transom after Jay Gould. When the trial
came on Gen. Sickles went down to
court, and pushed his way through the
crowd to where the prisoner was sitting.
Crowley was asked a few questions, sufficient
to convince the General that Sergeant Crow
ley and the boy at the F.rlo offices was the
same. Gen. Siokles volunteered his services
to Lawyer Spencer, who had chargo of Crow
ley's case, hut the latter said that acquittal was
certain on the testimony of ih- pliysi.i.iio. v, le,
attended the woman. Gen. Sickles was there
fore greatly surprised to learn afterward
that Crowley was convloted and sentenced to
IH'i years. During tho lattor part of Senator
Hill's administration as Governor, Crowley's
friends started a movement to secure his par
don. They went to Gen. Sickles, and he called
upon Gov. Hill and asked him if he would en
tertain an application for a pardon. The Gov
ernor said he would, but the appeal was never
presented. Some time ago the appeal was
presented to Gov. Flowor. with very strong
recommendations, and tho friends of the con
demned man have been looking anxiously for
favorable action. Gen. Sickles has not been
officially informed of the Governor's action.

Berlin, Aug. 27. At the beginning of the
tariff war between ltussla end Germany Berlin
politicians made airy prophecies that Ger
man industrlos would hardly feel the change.
Their idea of the situation has proved to be a
miserable delusion. Without doubt Russia
suffers more than doos Gormany from the
break In their commercial rotations, but the
losses on this side of the Vistula aro far from
trivial. The loss of the entire export trade
with Ilussia has been folt with unusual keen
ness on account of tho general depression
preceding it. Among thoso who oomplain
most bitterly to the Government are tho rub
ber exporters, tho Thuriugian porcelain man
ufacturers, the lampmakors. metalworkers,
and chemical manufacturers In Loipsie nnd
Boilln, and the owners of the great leather in
dustries In Offenbach.
These men reproach tho Government with
having proceeded flippantly and recklessly In
joining lssuo at this unfavorable time, ltus
sla. thoy say, was their best customer, and
their losses already amount to several bun
dled thousand marks. Many manufacturers
who with difficulty survived tho blow given
them by the McKlnloy bill have been brought
to the vorgo of ruin by tho tariff war. Not a
fow are believed to bo Insolvent.
Tho leaders it) the semi-official journals in
crease tho discontent in the Industrial centres
by making light of Germany's loss in trade.
Thoy continue to maintain that tho effect of
tho tariff war is hardly felt in the empire.
In proof of this assertion they givo the as
surance that slnco the break with Russia tho
trade of tho seaport l.ubcck has not been
lessened by a mark's worth. The truth of this
statement may bo gauged by tho fuct that the
lines of stoamshlps plying between I.ubi. k
and Russia and Finnish ports have suspendod
their services. The sufferers In all parts of
the country say that a military war would not
cause a greater commercial loss than does
the present policy of the Government. The
fact that the Russian orders, once filled in
Germany, are placed now in England and
Fiance adds to their bitterness.
Meanwhile reports from St. Petersburg and
Moscow show that Industrial affairs in Russia
aro about as bad as they can be. Since the ex
port of Russian grains to Germany has been
cut off. the Government has striven to keep up
agricultural prices hy all known artificial
means. Enormous quantities of cereals have
been bought for the army, loans on deposits of
corn have boon advanced, and railway tariffs
have boen made as low as possible to holp ex
porters In using new outlets to foreign mar
kets. All this, however, has availed little, as
Bulgaria, Roumanla. Turkey, and oven Spain
are sending such great quantities of corn to
central Europe that. Instead of the expected
rlso, a notable fall'-f prices in tho Berlin mar
ket has taken place. To the Russians them
selves, therefore, the situation seems almost
hopeless. The widespread despondency in
both countries Is regarded as a sign that the
war cannot, last long, and this fact tho German
manufacturers and Russian grain dealers hud I
about their only consolation.
Among the side Issues of the tariff war is tho
noteworthy Increase of smuggling on the
liusso-German frontier. Although officials on
both sides close an ere to this sort of thing,
affrays between them and smugglers become
dally moro frequent Some of them have re
sulted in death, many In sovere Injuries.
The army manoeuvres In the annexed prov
inces next month will be stern work for the
soldiers, taxing theirenergies hardly less than
would actual war. Exacting movements will
bo made on every day from the d to the loth,
not even excepting Sundays. Military men
are especially interested in the effect of tho
new cavalry rulos. introduced provisionally ut
a recent date, and to be tosted and reported on
regularly until Jan. 1,1805. The uso of .logs
to carry messages snd look up the dead and
wounded alter battle will be tried on u larger
scale than evor before. The trainers have
been out with the dogs near the Tempolhofor
Held for months in preparation for these ex
periments, and they are said to have reported
roroarkable success.
The refusal of France to be represented by a
military attache, as formorly. at the inan.i-u-vres
is still the subject of muoh comment. In
view of France's action, general attention is
directed to tho coincidence that Sept. 15, when
the grand final parade of the raan.ruvrlng di
vision will take plaoe on the battlefield of
Hagonau. Is the day choson for tho fraternisa
tion of the French and Russian flouts at Tou
lon. The suicide of a private in a regiment In
Potsdam has revived public discussion of
bullvlng and abuse in the army. The private
was the victim of his corporal, whoso inhuman
pructlce he described in a note left for his fam
ily. The VorwaertB, organ of tho Social
Democracy, directs attention to tho fact that
the 11 -year-old Crown Prince commands the
hall company to which the dead private be
longed, and. therefore, according to mili
tary law, is answerable for the whole
affair. Tho Crown Prince ought to
be curt mart iuilo.l. says the I urwatrtt,
and condemned to rigorous arrot for
sevoral months. Ho must not bo allowed
to escape punishment on account of his youth,
thinks the Social Democratic o.iltor. tor, if too
young to bear tho blame, he would be too
young also to command. Finally the Vuriran-tg
appeals to tho Emperor to curry out his scrupu
lous regard for military law and lot his oldest
son faro us would any other young Lieutenant
under similar conditions. A Social Deiuocrutlo
reporter, whoso uocount of the suicide appears
in tho vortflatvti, says that overy effort was
made In 1'otsdain to keep the suicide secret,
and that the body was hurried under ground
without oven a pretence ot religious services.
In Bavaria an official roport published on
Wednesday shows that In IBB2 privates in the
Bavarian army complainod of seventy non
commissioned and eight commissioned
officers. The suhiects of the complaints were,
us usual, pliyBicul violence and abusive lan
guage. All tho commissioned officers und
tiie majority of the non-commissone.l officers
were found guilty and ere punished. Bava
ria is the only German State lu which military
procedure Is public.
But for a fow sporadic, cases, traced to out
side sources. Germany is still regarded as free
from cholera. She is exposed dally, however,
to dangers from her Infected neighbors. On
the loii-.h frontier danger threatens con
stantly. n the Austrian border the dan
ger is fully us greut. while nil efforts
to guard against it are likely to be reu
.lere.l futile t,y tho lying ot the Hungarian au
thorities. The Hungarian Minister of the In
terior Is doing his best to obtain truthful ie
ports from tho, info, led districts, hut he Is
thwarted by the locul authorities. Some of
tho city and district officials suppress cholera
news merely because they aro too shiftless
and i, loo an to see the need of obeying the
orders of the Home Office, others do not re
port cases because they fear to annoy the peo
jdu. whose votes will be valuable at the next
election. The people la most of the infected
districts are reckless nnd illiterate. Most of
them are dirty, and dislike to be roused,
cleansed, and fumigated. The cholera spreads,
therefore, almost unchecked among them, and
nobody bears of It until the Increasing mor
tality causes u panic.
Dr. Dunbar, director, ,f the Hygienic Insti
tute In Hamburg, lias tested seventy-seven
samples of water Irom the Elbe and Its afflu

An Analrlaa "tailor Who Rrrnmed to Tnste
Food Valll He Wae Diinc.
rnii.ArvF.i.rniA, Aug. 27. Antonio Baehetlch
died early this morning In the seamen's board
ing house of Lucas Baehlet at (107 AnnapolU
street, hnvlnr refrained from eating food for
Seventy-six days.
Just bofore ho died ho called for food, but
had only taken a Utile beef tea when he fell
back dead in the arms of an old shipmate.
Baehetlch was Mi years old and a native of
Austria.
He had followed tho sea since boyhood, and
when he visited this port he always lived at
Bachiot's house. On Juno 11 last he went
to tho breakfast table There was no knlfo.
fork, or spoon at his plate, and he left tho table
lU linger.
Ho declared that ho would never again oat a
morsel of food. Finally he rofused to talk to
any person. Although he hadn't eaten for a
month and had wasted awav. he was able to
tako long walks about tho city. Friends fol
lowed to sec If he bought food, but he never did.
Every day ho scooped up a little water from
undora hydrant and drank It. lie refused to
have a physician or to go to a hospital. He
was well cared for In the boarding house.
Every night a roast chicken or othor food was
placed at his bedside, but he always threw It
away.
About a month ago ho was a more skeloton
and was unable to leave his bed. Dr. I E.
Taule'l was then called in. He made numer
ous oflorts tog' t the man to take nourishment,
but lailod. The Rev. father Smith of St.
Philip's Churoli was unable to induce him to
take food.
Women of the neighborhood begged him.
hut he remained firm in his determination. A
tew days ago ho summonod all the boarders to
his room, lie told them ho was about to die.
and thon reviewed his life, lie has S7UU In a
savings bank.
The starving man directed that after all his
debts were paid, the balance I o sent to his
father In a little village on the Adriatic sboro.
He was clour in mind until his death.

Annie Simonottl. a pretty brunette. 17 years
old. who lived at 02 Havomeyer street. Wil
llamsburgh, has had many quarrels with her
parents lately because of hor refusal to marry
one of the Italian suitors whom her fathor se
lected. The girl was called the belle of the
Italian colony, and bad many Italian admirers.
She prefet red a young American. Her parents
objected to him without knowing who he was.
and forbade her ever speaking to him. The
pair met clandestinely, and a week ago ar
ranged an elopement, which took place on
Saturday night. Annie was assisted by Kato
Gartland, a friend and neighbor. For several
days Annie managod to remove some of her
clothing from her room, which daily sho gavo
to Kate to keep.
Mr. and Mrs. Himonotti went to bed at 10
o'clock on Saturday night. Annie had gone to
her room a few minutes before Instead of
going to sleep, the girl packed up two Bniail
bundles of clothing and then sat down at an
open front window and waited. Just before
midnight a young man came along, whistling
lustily. Annie picked up her i. undies and stole
quietly down the stairs to the front door. As
tho whistler neared the house sho opened tho
door and joined him. The man was her sweet
heart. He clasped her in his arms and liter
ally ran away with her. Neither has since
been seen.
The elopement was tho talk of the neighbor
hood yesterday, but nobody, not even the pa
rents of the girl, knew the name of the man
with whom Annie eloped. Annie. In her ex
citement, forgot her hat. It was said by friends
of Annie last evening that on four occasions
she was about to be wedded to men of her pa
rents' choice, and that each time sho fainted
when the march to the minister's house be
gan and the wedding had to be postponed.
FORGOT HIE FAVCBT,

The ground floor at 171 Mercer street Is oc
cupied as a restaurant by J. II. Glattslein.
Above him is tho fur manufacturing estab
lishment of Herskovitn A- Roth, while tho next
floor Is taken tip by Benjamin Burnett, manu
facturer ot fancy furs and fur trimming:!. At
2:15 o'clock yesterday morning Patrolman
Jacob Hoffman of the Mercer street stntim
heard water trickling and found that it camo
from Glattslein's restaurant, ihe floor of
which was an Inch deep in it. Ho broke the
plnte-glass door of the restaurant with his
billy, and. climbing through the hole, went up
stairs. When he reached Burnett's door he
smashed that open also.
It was hero that the flood had its source. A
spring faucet at the sink was turnod open and
tied with a stout piece of twine. The water
was running at full force and had deluged the
iloor. trickling to the rooms below. Hoffman
cut the string and turned tho water off. It had
evidently been running for hours. Harnett's
loss will be slight as his goods nre all piled up.
Herskovlts i Roth were sent for Immedi
ately. They have a stock of capes. boaB. scarfs,
and muffs valuod at '-'.". 1 100. Half of theM.000
muffs are damaged and 300 capes. These will
have to bo entirely roworke.l. Thev estimate
their not loss at :i.i h ,. .. This Is entire loss, as
the fire Insurance thoy carry does not hold
good for simple water damage. The walls and
ceilings of both floors boneath Barnett are
ruined. The pluster bus fallen. The flood was
due to the forgetful leaving open of the faucet.
The water runs ony moderately by day, but
at night the pressure Is very great.

Fla.. with a cargo of lumber for W. I). Wheel
wright A Co., arrived In port yestorday. She
had on board the Captain and crow of sixteen
mon of tho Norwegian bark Glengairn, which
was sunk in collision with a strange schooner
on the night of Aug. 25 off Delaware Dreak
wator. The Captain of tho Clausen roports that on
Aug.'J.'t. In latitude :i7"4.V and longitude 74' :..
she ran Into a hurricane which at first blew
from the northeast but shifted suddenly to
the northwest. During tho storm, the deck
load shifted, and. tho lift parting the spanker
boom fell, smashing the after cabin skylight
nnd jamming the wheel. This left tho
schooner at tho mercy of the W'nds, and
beforo tho boom could be cut adrllt nnd the
w heel released, the seas flooded both cabins,
destroying all the provisions.
Off Barnegat Eight on tho evening of Aug.
'.'lithe Clausen fell In with a schooner which
had picked up the crew of the Glengairn. The
schoonor was bound to an Eastern port, so nt
tho roqusst of her commander Capt Appleby
took the shipwrecked crew on board his ves
sel and brought them to this port.
East night Claus IVuts.n. one of the Glen
galrn's sailors, narrated tho circumstances
which bad resulted in the sinking of tho bark
and perhaps In the loss of tho crew of the un
known s'hooner with which she collided.
The Glengairn. he said, was from Flekkef

officers were II. A. llarrseii. Captain: Ear
T. Sigbjornson. first mate: I.auretz I arson,
second mate, and Nells Johnson steward.
With the wind dead ahead the hark enooun
tero.l a dense log on Friday night, Aug. 25, off
Delaware Breakwater.
She hud started on a long reach, so as to
make u last tack that would take her Inside
the breakwater, when suddenly out of the
darkness camo the sound of a fog h. rn close at
hand. The next instant a large threo-mastod
eel, , oner hove insight She was closo at hand.
and headed directly across the Glengairn's
b.,w. The schoonor had a free wind and was
sailing muoh fastor than the bark. The ves
sels were so near that a collision could not be
averted.
The order. "Jam your helm herd down,
was given simultaneously on both, but bofore
It could bo obeyed the bark struck the schoon
er amidships. The vessels immediately
drifted apart Wild cries and shouts could bo
beard on board the schooner, and men were
scon scrambling Into the rigging.
As the vessels drifted further apart tho ex
citement and alarm scorned to Increaso on tho
schoonor. until suddenly she disappeared.
When an examination was made of the Glon
gairn. It was found that her bow was stove in
and that she was making water rapidly.
While some of the orow manned the pumps
the others made an effort to rig a topsail over
tho gap in the bark's side. It was no uso.
however, and at 4 o'clock In the morning they
were compolled to abandon the ship. Two
boats were provisioned and lowered away in
safety.
An hour later the bark sank. At 4 o'clock
that aftornoon a schoonor was sighted. She
saw tho signals of the boats, bore down on
them, and tho shipwrecked orew were taken
aboard. Two hours luter the Clausen hove in
sight and the transfer was made.
It Is bolloved that the unknown schooner
was laden with coal, for she was very low down
in the water, and bad a quantity of coal on her
deck. When tho Clausen came to anchor the
Olotigalrn's crew rowed over to Atlantic iiasin.
