meeting of the citizens' committee on the
october entertainment?partial repoi5ts
from thr collectors.
A mooting of the citizen*' committee on the
reception and entertainment of the French visitors
expected to arrive here on their wav to the
Yorktown centennial celebration, was held in
the dining-room of the National Hotel last night,
the president, Joeiah I>ent,esq..ln the chair, and
Mr. M. M. Parker secretary. There was a pretty
fair number of live and energetic business men
present. The cliair stated the object* of the
meeting to l>e to hear reports of the finance commute
and the sub-committee appointed to aid in
the work of collections, and to take such other
action as might be deemed advisable.
the financial rf.rort.
Mr. Cross, chairman of the finance committee.
stated that he had seen most of the chairmen of
the sub-committees who have Ik*oii at work and
had notified them to be present and report progress.
He had given most of his time since the
last meeting in running after these committees,
and was sorry to see so few of them present.
He could, however, state that most of them are
at work as the results would show. The business
men of this city were making fair contributions
as a general thing, but he was sorry
that some of them are not coming up to a
proper appreciation of the work. He had called
on some of the railroad men and they would contribute.
The railroads, hotels and restaurants
would benefit more probably than any others,
and as a matter of course would contribute more
liberally. He had called upon Mr. Hurt., of the
Washington and Georgetown street railroad
company. Mr. H. stated that he had no power
tq pay out any money of the company without
consent and instructions. There
would be a meeting of the company
Wednesdav, and he would put the matter before
the directors. He had also seen Mr. Barthol. of
the Gas Company, who had promised to assent
to any thing the* company might decide upon.
He thought they might rely upon a good subscription
there. Mr. Cross further stated that
he had already received cash in hand to the
amount of $1,781.25 from four of the committee
on collections. Mr. George Cochran had paid
over to him $566.25. and besides that had good
unpaid subscriptions to the amount of $248
more. Mr. Weller had done remarkably well.
Mr. J. C. Ergood had also done nobly, and Mr.
F. K. Ward, the dairy man, had even done better
than all put together, he had understood, but he
was not present to report.
Mr. Cochran said he believed that Mr.
Ward had trespassed on grounds assign ed
for others to canvass, and would therefore
make a better showing than any other collector.
He was glad he had done so, as it
saved others the trouble, but was afraid he had
let some of the contributors off too easy, receiving
too small sums from them. He thought the
prospect looked exceedingly well and thai there
would be no difficulty in getting the full amount
necessary, $10,000.
the lawyers.
Mr. R. J. Meigs, appointed to look after the
lawyers, said he had taken in $11.50, which he
turned over to the finance committee. He
would take nothing but cash subscriptions from
them. (Laughter). It was fair, however, to say
that there had been no courts held recently and
but few of the legal gentlemen had been about
the court rooms and he had seen but few. Mr.
Cochran moved, that as there were considerable
amounts of unpaid subscriptions on the several
books, the chairman of the finance committee be
authorized to employ one or two collectors to
go about and receive the amounts pledged, and
make returns to the chairman as fast as possible.
He had been out most of the time for two days,
and had to go home and go to bed. Carried.
Considerable informal discussion was held as
to the comparative liberality of the different
trades and professions, and several amusing
stories were told about the ideas of liberal contributions.
It was remarked that if the lawyers
in this District would contribute $2 each they
would have a sufficient amount. Mr. Cochran
moved that the several committees be
continued, and proceed to get cash
contributions, and to turn over the unpaid
subscriptions to the finance committee,
which is authorized to employ collectors to receive
the sums pledged. Carried.
the public reservations.
The chair stated that he had written to the
army engineer in charge of the public reservations.asking
that permission be given the executive
committee to make use of the public squares
on the line of Pennsylvania avenue, from 15th
street to the Capitol, and had obtained his assent.
These places should at once be rented out
to the highest bidders for seating and standing
room, and a good sum might be realized in this
way.
Mr. Cochran moved that the chairman of the
finance committee be authorized to advertise lor
proposals for the use of these squares to enterprising
speculators in seating room. Carried.
It was suggested by Mr. Weller that the committee
on fire-works* distribute in a judicious
way the pyrotechnic display on the whole line,
and not as has usually been the case, shoot them
all off in the west end of the town. [Applause.]
They could be seen to quite as good advantage
in the Capitol grounds as in the White lot.
The chair suggested that some of the set
pieces should represent Lafayette. Washington,
Surrender of Yorktown, Peace, Goddess of Liberty,
Ac., &c.
Mr. Pratt, from the finance committee, said
these matters would all be attended to.
Mr. Cochran said he was satisfied that from
the results shown there was already a paid-up
cash subscription of from $6,000 to $8,000 if it
were all in. He was in favor of having the
chairman, secretary and chairman of the finance
committee have charge of the disbursements.
the military and civic display.
Mr. Dickson at this point arrived and said the
several civic organizations and military organizations
would have a part in the procession of
welcome to the guests. He had understood
that at a former meeting the executive committee
would be entrusted with the duty of making
contracts for a fireworks display, and would
therefore necessarily make the allotment to be
expended for the several devices, <tc. He thought
this committee should have the disbursement of
the means to pay for the different kinds of display,
but it should be under rules and restraints
which would suggest themselves as they proceed.
All want the best show and devices for
the least money. He had no doubt but all would
be well satisfied with the results.
It was announced that the fireworks committee
would have a meeting to-night and the executive
committee on Monday night next, both
at the city post office.
Mr. H. Searle has submitted a proposition to
the illumination committee to send up a 22 foot
balloon with fireworks attached.

Tbe Attempt to imtetr Mr. Longaa.
OWEN FI-OOD COMM1TTKO TO JAIL.
This morning. In the IVlice Court. 0*?i Flood,
man wlio attempted to shoot Mr. Oliver W.
Longan. the particulars of which were published
in yesterday'* Star, was put on trial for assault
and hattery. Mi. l^ongan was sworn and testified
that he lives at No. 222 11th street southeast,
and is secretary to the board of trustees of the
Soldiers* Home; that Ids office is in the Winder
building. and that his duty is to a.lmit old
soldiers to the Home. This man Flood is
a discharged soldier, and made application
to ldm for admission to the Home
some time airo. and on examining his
| case, w itness found tliat according to the
. rales of the institution he could not l?e admitted,
and told him so. He appealed to the board of
commissioners, and was admitted to lite Home.
I pending the decision of the board. Tl?e Itoard
; decided against Flood, and he was given Ivave
to stay at the Home about a month, until he
! could find employment or gel other shelter, lie
came hack yesterday, and was very abusive and
! profane, and witness saw at once that he meant
mischief. He kept up his abuse and profanit y,
and witness caught him by the shoulder and
turned him quickly around, and caught hold of
both shoulders, and shoved hini quickly through
the hall, and down the steps into the vestibule.
and released his hold on him.
when Flood put his hand into his hip pocket
and quickly drew a revolver and presented it at
witness and pulled the trigger, but it fortunately
hung fire, and in jumping aside witness
fell down. Before Flood could make another 1
attempt to fire, some bystanders seized him and
threw him down and secured the revolver.
The court here suggested to the prosecuting
attorney that he had better charge the defendant
with assault and battery with -intent to kill," j
remarking at the same "time that this was a de- j
liberate attempt to assassinate an official by a
pcrsou, because he thorght he had a grievance,
and this case is exactly similar to the assault on
President Garfield. He was subsequently
charged with assault with Intent to kill, and the I
case was sent to the grand jury, under *3.000.
in default of which Flood was committed. The
f)istol, a rather small seven-shooter of the "IVender"
pattern, w as shown to Mr. Longan, and
he identified it. It had six cartridges in it.

street, Philadelphia, where his wife, who had
been separated from him. lived with her mother.

Pullman Car Conductors Dismissed. ? a
telegram to the New York Herald from Montreal,
September 29th, says: "Considerable consternation
exists among the Pullman car conductors
on the eastern division of the service, the headquarters
of which is in Montreal. It appears
that some time ago a conductor was discharged
from the employ of the Pullman company for
having written to the Police Gazette a letter exposing
a conductor caught in improper relations
with another conductor's wife. He w as considerably
enraged at being discharged, and as soon
as possible complained to General Manager
Brown, of Chicago, that there existed certain
irregularities in the service. Detectives were
sent over the eastern section ot the liue, and the
result of the whole business is that some twenty
men have been sus|>endcd or summarily dismissed
from the service. T. H. Clarke, general
superintendent, has resigned; Charles Robinson,
assistant superintendent, has also sent in his
resignation, and Mr. Reed, assistant superintendent
at Boston, comes here as general superintendent."
Senator Pendleton on the Senate Problem.?Senator
Pendleton has been interviewed
in Cincinnati, and says he has no reason to believe
that any arrangement had been made by
Senators upon a program for organizing the Senate
with a republican president. The democrats,
having a majority, must necessarily elect a
democrat, but when the new members are sworn
In, there will be a tie. This dead-lock, he believed,
would lead to an arrangement honorable
to both parties, and the country be spared any
exhibition of rancor that would be so offensive to
people genarally.

the assembly districts but the ninth. The rumor
that Gen. Grant was to be cnosen a delegate
from the twentieth district proved untrue.
There was a protracted struggle in the fifteenth
district, but the Conkling ticket w as declared

Caused bt News of Death. ? The
death of the 1 Resident caused the death of two
persons in Flint. One a carpenter who 1iad
worked as usual during the day and to all appearances
was in good health. He heard the
bell tolled and exclaimed: "The President is
dead!" and died almost instantly. The other, a
young lady, who had been sick for some time;
she said when she heard the bells: "The I'resident
is dead and I shall soon be with him," and
died before the bells ceased tolling.?Detroit Post ,

The Color Line in Schools.?A special dispatch
to the Philadelphia Time*, from Union- j
town. Pa., September 27, says: "A. D. Boyd pre- r

Hydn?pholdaV Horrors.
From the New York Ilrnld. K?*nt. soth.
The horrors ??f hydrophobia have rarelv found
more paintul illustration than in the death on
Monday last, at Florence. N. J., of the wife of
Janson Cox, a shoemaker. She was bitten on
Auuust l.? in the cheek by a small tenier. It
was at first supposed that she w as only suffering
from malaria, liut her aversion to w ater excited
crrave aj.prehension. A? she grew mora
feverish she continually asked for water but
s?Hm was unable to endure the sight of it.
harly on Sunday morning the first iwroxysm
occurred, w inch four hours later w as follow ed
t>j another. Hypodermic Injections were given
but these only partly quieted her. Soon she
began to exhibit those tenible characteristics of
tne malady, snapping and snarling like a do*
which continued until aeath reliev^l her of her
sufferings There were other |ieculiar accompantvncntH
of (ho caw1 almost a* painful to witness?frequent
vomitings of large quantities of
ciiairulated blood and froth. the most
tcighrtu! distortions of countenance, and a
coupiete change in the color of th?
skin. In her rational moments sh?
lovingly to her husband and children
and told them that she could not live. At
her request the windows of her room were fastened
and the doors barricaded, so that she could
not escape and hurt any one. but in a paroxysm
despite all efforts to restrain her. she nearly
broke through the barricade. Afterward at her
own request, she was ti.nl to her tied, but she
burst the bonds assunder. and it took several
persons to hold her. Shortly before her death
her face lost all semblance of humanity, hcrskin
became a brownish red. her eyes were bloodshot,
the pupils ls'ing invisible; her noseliccaine
dmw n and pinched, her ears hung |?eudaiit. the
muscles of the mouth contracted, she barked
and growled and gnashed her teeth, and her
whole countenance resembled that of au animaL
It was a relief w hen death ended the scene.
