BKICE KGNTKNCGD TO BE HANGED
The Motion for a New Trial Overruled.
tne oath of a nEBRKW of the reformed faith?
jl'due wylie passes sentence?price does not
want a crowd at the hanging.
A motion for a new trial in the case of Edward
Brlce, colored, convicted on the 7th instant of the
murder of Peter Washington, at the Baltimore and
Potomac depot, February lfith last, was heard by
Judge Wylie. The motion mafle by Mr. E. P.
Phelps, Brlce's counsel, Is based on the fact that
W. M. Frank, one of the Jurors, who Is a Hebrew,
was sworn upon the Christian Bible, and not upon
the Five Books of Moses.
MR. FRAME'S AFFIDAVIT.
Mr. Taggart,for the government, read an affidavit
of Mr. Frank that he is of the Reformed
Hebrew faith, and the tenets of that denomination
regarded an oath with uncovered head and on
the whole Bible as binding,and Unit since that time
he had seen two such oaths administered in this
court.
The court said that he would not grant the
motion, even were Mr. Frank an orthodox Jew, for
the objection should have be*n raised at the
time. The affidavit met the objection, and the
motion for a new trial was overruled.
Mr. Phelps asked for a suspension of the sentence
for 30 days. .
The court declined tn do tbb, saying that the
prisoner was entitled to an &pf>e41 It he desired to
take one.
the prisoner sentenced.
Brlce was told to stand up, and, stating that he
had nothing to say, the court proceeded to pass
sentence, stating to him that his own conscience
told him of bis guilt, and advising him to place
himself In the hands of his spiritual adviser fcr
preparation for the change which Is to come from
this world to the next. The sentence was, that the
prisoner be taken to jail, and there kept in confinement
till the first Friday succeeding the close of
the General Term of the Court, and be then taken
to the place prepared for his execution within the
walls of the Jail, and between the hours of 8 and 10
a. m. be hung by the neck until dead, "and may
God have mercy on your soul."
WHY AN EARLY HOC* WAS FIXED.
Mr. Taggart said the usual hour was between 12
and X
"Yes," said the court, "b?t 1 do not propose to
give all the morning for a crowd to gather at the
Jan." .
Brlce showed no emotion whatever.
Pleas of Not Guilty.?The following arraignments
took place In the Criminal COart this morning,
and thev pleaded not guilty: Grant Thomas,

CONFERENCE COMMITTEES OS APPROPRIATION BILLS.
The Speaker announced the appointment of i
the following conference committees: on the
naval appropriation bill, Messrs. Hutchlns, Randall
and Calkins; on the post office appropriation
bill, Messrs. Townshend, Ilolman and Hoor.
MR. ROBINSON AROUSED.
Mr. Cox (N. Y.), lroin the committee on naval
affairs, asked leave to report for present consideration
the Senate joint resolution granting permission
to Ensign Reynolds, I*, s. N. (who is now on
duty with the Greely relief expedition), to accept
the decoration of the royal and Imperial order of
Francis Joseph from the government of Austria.
Mr. Kobinson <N. Y.) objected, saying, however,
that he was willing to extend tire thanks of Con- j
gress to this young man?an honor compared with
which these ribbons were nonsense.
american shipping interests.
The nouse then proceeded to the consideration
of the special order?being the bill to remove certain
burdens on the American merchant marine,
and encourage the American foreign carrying trade.
After the reading of the report, Mr. siocum
(N. Y.) was awarded the floor, our navigation
laws, he said, like those relating to the militia, had
not been changed In the past century. They were
to-day Just what they were 80 years ago. For BO
years they had been precisely the same as those of
England. Thirty years ago England had modified
her laws and her commercial marine had increased
vastly from that modification; and the bill under
consideration proposed to make our laws somewhat
similar to the changes made by England. The !
subject had attracted the attention of the people, i
and this measure was Intended simply to sweep I
away some old laws which owners, ship masters i
and the merchants of the country agreed should be
eradicated from the statute books. It contained no I
E revision which was not unanimously recommended
y the shipping committee; ana as, if it were to '
pass, It must pass to-day. he would not detain the
House with any further discussion.
Mr. Deuster (Wis.) supported the bill.
Mr. Cox (N. Y.) did not consider It worth while
to-day to say to an American Congress that our |
foreign shipping was a mere skeleton. By over
coddling it had been killed. lie was surprised?he '
was about to say mortlfled?that this bill, which
contained so many good features, did not contain ;
something that would really restore the domination
which the United States once possessed upon the
seas, and that, while copying so many of the English
features, It had not copied the main features? I
free registry, free purchase of ships and free trade I
in materials which entered into the con- !
structlon of a ship. The measure was merely a partial
relief. It could not rehabilitate our commerce. !
He also regretted that the shipping committee
had not provided for the abolition of the shipping
commissioners' offices. In conclusion, he trusted
that tills democratic House, elected at least on
some principle of liberality, might do what the last
democratic House did on one occasion (and repented
of the next day) and adopt two propositions, one
for free materials to help the ship builder, ana the
other for free ships to help the ship owners. They
would go hand in hand for the enhancing of the
maritime interest and for the glory of the flag.
Mr. l'arktr (N.Y.) thought the bill brushed off
too lew of the barnacles which were attached to
the shlppldg laws, and gave notice of 'several
amendments he would offer which would affect
more especially the commerce of the lakes.
The bill was then read by sections for amendment.
Capitol Top In*.
THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER IMPROVEMENT QUESTION.
The members of the Mississippi river commission
continued their statement concerning the Improvement
of that river before the House committee on
levees and Improvements to-day. Prof. Mitchell
and Major Sutter said the work had passed beyond
the experimental stage, and resuits can be calculated
with certainty; that the improvement of the
river for commerce will be accomplished by confining
the' water In Its natural channel, so that It
will ecour out a deep chaunel, and that this can
only be done by building levees in the places where
banks are low. At 2 o'clock the commission went
before the river and harbor committee.

The Railroad Route Question*
votes of the senate di8trict committee on the
baltimore and ohio tunnel project and the
baltimore and potomac depot site.
The vote id the Senate District committee yesterday,
on the proposition to permit the Baltimore and <
Ohio railroad to tunnel Capitol Hill was 1 yen. to 8
nays. It had been discovered that the sentiment
of the Senate was decidedly opposed to the tunnel
scheme, and the members of the committee who
had formerly voted for It changed their votes, with
a single exception. The proposition to move the tith
street depot was carried by one majority.
attitude of the b. a 0. railroad.
It was hinted about the Capitol to-day that the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad, company will antagonize
the' whole plan of changing the routes of
steam railroads aDd the location of depots, if the ?
scheme of requiring that road to go around the city '
is adopted. It would be very gratifying to the
Pennsylvania Central people for the Baltimore and I
Ohio to take this stand, as it would tend to defeat
any legislation affecting railroads In this city. But j
Mr. Robert Garrett, of the Baltimore and olilo, In
speaking of the subject, did not Intimate that ills
company had any great objections to a route
around the city. He said: "We are willing to accept
anything that Is deemed fair and proper."

Before the Morrison bill was taken up for consideration
a caucus was held by the democratic
Congressmen from Pennsylvania, at which, as a
matter of compromise, a resolution was adopted: j
"That we will consider and vote to pass a bill
which omits the feature of horizontal reduction,
and which provides for the correction of Ine- 1
qualities, defects and errors In existing tariff leglstlon,
and also provides for a moderate and reason- :
able reduction of customs duties, and for the repeal
of all Internal taxes except on spirits distilled from :
grain, and the abolition of all Internal revenue <
offices, with suitable provisions for a more eeo- '
nomlcal collection of taxes on spirits distilled from <
grain."
This was presented by Gov. Curtln and Messrs.
Mutchler and Storm, a committee appointed for the

whom It was declined. The Pennsylvania members 1

Representative Talbott, of Maryland, who supported
Mr. Randall for the Speakership, and has
agreed with him on the tariff question, said to a
Stab reporter to-day: "The House Is going to pass
the Morrison bill as sure as fate."
"With amendments?" inquired the reporter.
"They will pass it pure and simple," was the
reply.
"How do you account for that?"
"Oh, there hate been a good many changes,"
answered Mr. Talbott: "more than most people

14,8**0 and 14,891 with the same offense as to the
same property, and a nolle pros, was entered, and
FUnder and McDevltt were acquitted, and on the
trial their Innocence was fully demonstrated and
proven beyond question, provided the testluiony
produced by the t'nlted States was truthful. They j
further stated that the statements made by Thos.
Donohue und others would, if true, connect these
affiants with the manual possession of said bonds,
?c., and with a knowledge of and concerning the
larceny of the same. They aver that the said statements
are wholly false and untrue, and, according
to their Information, the same nave been manufactured
by the said wltnessess "for the purpose of
aiding certain designing and evll-dlsposed persons."
As to Indictment 14.673 Mr. Miller makes affidavit
that he Ls Indicted for receiving stolen goods, the

ls at Lansing, Mich., and he avers that all of them
are within the reach of the process of the court,
and closes witli tbe additional statement that the '

that he ls wholly Innocent," &c.
THE CHRISTIAKCY DIAMOND ROBBEKY?PLEAS OF NOT
GCILTY.
Mr. Wlllams called the attention of the court to !
the affidavits as to the Chrlstlancy diamond case,
and some surprise was shown when he stated that
there had been no arraignment on this indictment.
The court said that nothing could be done until
there was an arraignment.
Mr. Williams said Mr. McElfresh was present, and
Mr. Miller would be in a few minutes.
District Attorney Woithlngton said he would not
waive any of his rights, but he had had no notice of
the afildav!t8 having been filed.
The court said there should be an arraignment
before any other action was taken.
Mr. Williams said he had served a notice. In
writing, on Mr. Worthlngton on Thursday, stating
that there would be affidavits filed.
Messrs. McElfresh and Miller were arraigned on
the Chrlstlancy indictments, and entered pleas of
not guilty.
Mr. Worthlngton claimed that he had not had
sufficient notice.
The Court said that the question was now, would
they fix a day.
Mr. Williams said In the case of Miller three full
terms of the court had passed and In the case of
McElfresh two full terms.
The Court I hope they are half through.
A SPEEDY TRIAL DESIRED.
Mr. Williams said they desired a speedy trial.
The Court.?You need not enlarge on that point.
Mr. Worthlngton when will It suit you to try these
cases?
Mr. Worthlngton replied that he was unable to say
now, for he had not had time to Investigate them.
When he should take up the cases, in such as came
within the ruling of the court he would nolle pros,
for he did not believe in taking up the time of the
court unnecessarily. He admitted that the defendant
was entitled to a speedy trlaL He did not believe
that a prosecution should hold off cases
because the ruling of the court was against him.
There were many of these cases, and he would
require time to examine them. There were two
cases in which they were ready?those of Dunn and
Murphy?which went to the central Term.
The Court.?These are not detective cases.
Mr. Worthlngton said they had been so repre-'
sen ted to him.
The Court?They are monte cases.
Mr. Worthlngton asked if Mr. Williams would be
ready to try these eases Tuesday week.
Mr. Williams replied that he would not, and that
those opuses should not be Injected here.
THE TRIALS FIXED FOR JCNE 9TH.
The court said he would tlx the cases for the second
Monday In June?the 9th.
Mr. Williams called attention to the other cases
growing out of the National Metropolitan bank t
robber}'.
Mr. Worthlngton said that since the former trial
matters had come to him to cause him to doubt If
he had not made a mistake as to entering a nolle
pros, as to Mlilerand McElfresh.
The court said he would lix the detective cases
for that date, so that there could be a week of detective
business.
CASES WHERE DEMCRRERS HATE REEN FILED TO RE
HEARD NEXT SATURDAY.
In several of the remaining cases the defendants
entered pleas of not guilty, and the cases where demurrers
have been Died were set for Saturday next.

nolle pros, as to the cases against Horace Uovan,
alias "Little Horace.''
The Court.?You must control that If I had
control over you I would not consent to do It. Of
course the government can do as it pleases.
Mr. Worthlngton.?W7ell, I will enter a nolle pros.

These cases are, indictments (with James Burns
and George Carson) for the Government Printing
office robbery, $9,813, January 2, 1879; for the National

pelland of the stonecutters at the washington
monument accepep to by coi- caset.
The stonecutters employed on the Washington
Monument quit work Thursday, and were not at
work yesterday. It was a case of a strike hpeedlly
settled by Colonel Casey's acceding to the
demands of the workmen. The stonecutters are
employed on piece work. They have cut the stono
for use In the monument up to course 4?n. At thin
point more work Is required on the stone as the
foundation for the arch, which Is to support the
pyramidal covering for the monument, is here laid,
and the stonecutters claim that they cannot makm
reasonable wages unless the price of the work ts
advanced. Colonel Casey yesterday Informed the
committee of the stonecutters that he would
accede to their demands, and work was rtuum d
to-day.
There are 73 stonecutters employed on the work.
One ot the stonecutters said to-day that the strike
had really been unnecessary, and was premature,
as the advance in the price had already been settled,
although the workmen were not aware of it.
The stonecutters did not name any particular price.
but the advance was tlxed by CoL Casey.
what coi- casey says.
"What was the grievance of the workmen at the
Washington monument?"' asked a star reporter of
CoL Casey this morning. "There was no grievance
at all," was the reply, ".and not the slightest disagreement.
The stones which the men are now
dressing require more and tiner work than those
they have been engasred upon heretofore, and they
came to me and said that on that account they
would need more pay than they had l?een getting;
that they could not make wages at the old rates. i
told them that they should have It. and that
i would see that Justice was done them.
i made estimates, and sent them word that
they should receive seventy cents per square foot
for cutting the face of a stone and slxtv certs for
the other parts. These rates were perfectly satisfactory,
and there Isn't the slightest hitch."
"What were the former prices?" asked the reporter.
"Forty and fifty cents,r was the reply. "The
stones they are cutting now are to be laid above
the height of 470 feet, and from that point on the
work on them Is finer and more difficult, for then the
stones have the corbels or projecting elbows, w hlch
6erve as the foundation for the arch w hich w ill sustain
the pyramidal covering. Now, you must
understand that there was nothing like a strike in
this matter. The men simply asked for their dues
and got them. There have been similar cases itefore
In the construction of the monument, w hich
always ended satisfactorily."
The Potomac Flats Improvement.
MR. c. B. CHURCH BEFORE TH* HOC9K RIVER AND
HABBOR COMMITTEE?FAVORABLE ACTION EXPECTED.
Mr. C. B. Church was given a hearing before t he
Douse river and harbor committee yesterday afternoon,
and urged the necessity of an appropriation
to continue the Improvements of the Potomac river
flats. He spoke at length upon the Importance of
the work, and called the committee's attention to
the necessity of continuing Its prosecution by s
prompt appropriation, whicn would enable t he enEneere
to proceed In the most complete and econoroil
way. This Is the ttrst consideration the committee
ha vegiven the matter, their time having been
occupied by each state In Its turn. They an' understood,
however, to favor making the appropriation
recommended by the engineers as ricc**ssary.
They *?11 hear the Mississippi river commission
this afternoon, and after that will consider the bill
In executive session, when tire Potomac flats will
be discussed by the committee for the first time.
There Is some talk of holding a meeting to-night,
and ir they do, Mr. Willis says, they win probably
be ready to report the bill to the House on Monday.
At all events they will be ready to report by neit
Wednesday. The District of Columbia and the
Mississippi Improvements are yet to be added to
the bill, so that the total is not yet known. It will
probably amount, however, to over fl2,000,000.
