Interstate Commerce Law:
I last year billed for excursions and had my rides
free, for working for the Erie road but I cannot do

ot lnsterstate commerce law interferes. I think it
is a burning shame tuat such a law exist for it is

good. I enclose a printed letter from passenger
agent from Elmlra. I ought to have a reg'iar pass
then 1 could travel and ao the company's bluing

so I can have my rides as 1 did last year Hoping
to here Horn you in my falvor 1 remain

The letter of the railroad official enclosed was as
follows:
Elmira, N.Y., June 17,1887.
Mr. W. H. Gardner, Waverly, N. ?.:
Dear Sir: lour letter of the 16th inst., with box
containing the dower, received. I presume Mr.
Miltord has your bill for posting done, and will
forward same to me, and I will put It through the

fifteen cents for a half-mile ride too much.
Another person, writing from Petersburg, Va.,
complains that the coast Line charges passengers
holding tickets for Petersburg fifteen cents to ride
half a mile from one depot to the other. As the
regular tariff is three cents per mile, the writer
held that the fifteen-cent charge was exorbitant,
and he insisted that the interstate Commission
should look Into and correct the matter.
Says He Shot in Self-defense.?Last night
Officer Mulloy arrested Charles Johnson, the negro
who shot Frank Fulu In the county, near Howard
University, Saturday night. To-day, in the Police
court, he pleaded guilty to a charge of assault
with Intent to kin, and added that he did the
shooting in self-defense. He afterward waived
an examination, and the case was sent to the
grand Jury.

| QUITEAU'S HEAD.
i Parts of HI* Body said to be Scattered
Orer ibe Country.
That the head or part or the head ot Gulteau,
the assassin, should have fallen Into the hands of
a showman is not a surprise to those who knew
how the body was disposed of. Such people do
not think it Improbable that the head said to be
held for exhibition in New York is a genuine
thing. Dr. E. F. Schafhirt, the anatomist of the
Medical Museum, when he went to the Jail at the
time of the execution, June 30, 1882, took with
him some embalming fluid and a syringe for its
application. After the hanging, when the physi
cians were making a postmortem examination, as
most of those present were engaged in the exam
ination of the brain, Dr. Schafhirt injected the
euuiuimtng fluid into the fleshy part 01 the head
.Tbe 8tory of the burial of the assas
sin s body in the basement of the Jail building, its
JSFSffiSa'ew nights after, and removal to
the Medical Museum, is well known, although
many persons at first doubted that such disposi
tion had been made of it. At the museum the
body was placed in a bowl of spirits, and subse
quently the bones were articulated, and are now
in the museum, it is usual for the flesh to be
destroyed with the soft parts of the body, but
sucn is tne mania of some people for relics
of a ghastly nature that anything pertaining
to the assassin was sought after. Pieces of thS
coffin are now to be found in many cities, and a
physician in Georgia has now a small piece of the
cartllege from the assassin's breast bone. Dr.
having to prepare the skeleton, deter
mined to make the attempt to preserve the bone
e therefore placed it in a glass jar
filled with liquid, and some of his Intimate friends
several months afterward were given an oppor
v10^ Qulteau square In the lace.
Although the Jar In which it was kept was rather
small and the face was so pinched as to be
scarcely recognizable, when It was taken out and
placed over a ball of tow the regular features of
Gulteau were easily recognized. The head in New
York can, if genuine, be easily recognized.
A MAM WHO SAW THE BEAD.
"I haven't the slightest doubt of the correctness
of the story that Gulteau's head and face are to be
exhibited publicly In New York," said a well
know citizen to a Star reporter to-day. "The face
and other fleshy parts of the body were not
destroyed, as was supposed, but were preserved
oy Dr. Schafhirt, the anatomist of the Medical
Museum. The skull and bones were of course re
tained oy the museum, but the rest of the body was
JjfKarded by Dr. Schafhirt as bis private property,
ine face and scalp were preserved intact,
and were so cleverly fllled out by the anatomist as
to appear as if the entire skull was there. It was
Gulteau's face, with the straggly beard, scar on
the scalp, and everything as natural as life. It
remained in Dr. Schafhlrt's private office for at
least eight months, and I frequently saw it, as did
a number of other people. The clothes worn by
the assassin were also preserved In a chest in the
same room. When I recall tne remark that I
heard Dr. Schafhirt make about the lace I have
no doubt or the authenticity of the story. I re
member he said In effect that a Government posi
tion is not always a certainty, and that the time
would come when he could turn these things to ac
count. Uudoubtedly the notorious Gulteau will
be exhibited to the public as natural as life.

Defective Plumbing at the Treasury.
TUB BAD SANITARY CONDITION OF THE BUILDING.
There la general satisfaction In the Treasury
Department that the grand jury has taken notice
of the bad sanitary condition of the Treasury
building, as stated in The Star of Saturday. The
unsatisfactory condition of the sewerage has been
a matter of concern to the officials, and much
sickness has occurred among the employes that
has been attributed to that cause, chief Clerk
Youmans has tried during two sessions of con
gress to get an appropriation sufficient to put the
sewerage in good condition. He succeeded In get
ting an appropriation of only $20,000, less than
one-third of what the lowest estimates were for
the work. He has been unable to do anything be
cause of the difficulty of reconstructing a part
only of the system, while the rest remains as bad
as ever. As soon as the work Is begun, they will
Decome Involved In the necessity or going over the
whole sewerage system of the building.
Supervising Architect, Bell first called attention
to the matter In his report for '84, and in every re
port since then he has made his recommendation
stronger and more urgent. His report lor '80 con
tained reports of the surgeon General of the
Marine Hospital Service aDd other experts, show
ing that a new sewerage system In the building 1
was absolutely necessary to t he health of the occu- I
{tants. In the report for "86 Mr. Bell says: "The
Ives and health of the 2,500 occupants of this
building certainly calls for some provision to cor
rect tun foul condition of the at mosphere that
exists beyond a question, and further delay In the
matter would seem to be inhuman."
It Is hoped now that the action of the grand
Jury will accomplish something.

UEOVS CAVALCADE TO WESTMINSTER ABBEY,
THROUGH STKKKTS DECORATED WITH BEWILDERlNO
PROFUSION AND CROWDED WITH HUNDREDS OF
THOUSANDS OF HUZZAHINO PEOPLE.
London, June 2L?The tiret day ot the fltty-flrst
year ot the reign or yueen victoria over ureal
Britain opened with perfect summer weather In
London. A lovelier day could not have been de
aired for the celebration of Her Majesty "a jubilee.
The sun shone bright, the air was clear and not
very warm, and a gentle breeie blew steadily.
The crowds scattered over the city are unpre
cented In numbers and size. Thousands ot people
who yesterday selected locations along the route
ot to-day's procession. In order to retain them,
occupied them all night and many used
camp stools or improvised rests to enable them
I to withstand the long and tiresome occupation. A
steady stream or carnages and pedestrians
I poured constantly all night until dawn through
the city, rrom all directions, towaro West End.
At 5 o'clock this morning every point ot vantage
along the streets composing the royal procession
route was secured. At y o'clock the line or route
was on each side a compact mass ot people.
Everybody, despite the discomfort or the crowd
ing, manifested the utmost good humor.
A BRILLIANT AND HISTORIC SCENE.
The scene at Westminster Abbey was most bril
liant. Every seat was tilled and every person
present was distinguished. When tUe identities
were enumerated it seemed as ir every locality tlie
world over had sent one or more or Its representa
tive personages to do honor to Kngland's queen on
Britain's greatest holiday. There never probably In
modern times assembled under one root an
audience so well and so brilliantly arrayed.
Every man present entitled to wear a uni
form or decoration had both on, new or
bumlsned up. When this audience was all
seated the scene presented was incomparable.
When the sun shone brightly through the noble
stained windows of the abbey Its rays fell upon an
unaccustomed sight, and the picture was inde
scribable. This audience, oanked up as It was In
church, was anything but somber. For a while,
when all were seated, there was quiet, but this
was only temporary and lasted only long enough
to enab.e the people to locate one another. Then
there was the lire ot recognition and of gossip, and
I it graduated rapidly into a noisy num.
STB AN liB SIGHTS AND SOUNDS IN WESTMINSTER
ABBEY.
TliLi was startling to a person who entered sud
denly, considering tlie place and who were buried
there; but the stranger was soon fascinated, and
Himself added to what had struck him as desecra
tion. Busy and Interested as were the people
making this Irreverent congregation some person
ages entered the abbey strong enough to compel
general attention and recognition. When uie
Marquis or Salisbury, the queen'a prime minister,
entered and proceeded to the place set apart
for him he was cheered. When Mr. Gladstone
was observed quietly edging his way
to his seat he was also cheered. Such was the
eagerness of those who had assured places In the
audience at Westminster to be on hand that scores
or lords and ladles repaired to the edifice at unnec
essarily early hours and, as many of them ad
mitted, without having partaken or any breakfast.
It was a strange sight to see flasks and sandwiches
i exchanged In sucn a crowd, and eagerly used by
numberless aristocrats onable to longer withstand
hunger or thirst. This business ? uen addod to
the num at times seemed Irreverent, even on Jubi
lee day In Westminster.
THE ROUTE OF THE PROCESSION.
The line or the procession troiu Buckingham
Palace to Westminster Abuey, was as roiiows:
From the palace portal along constitution mil,
Piccadilly, Kegent street, Waterloo Place, Pall
MalL East Cockspur street, Northumberland ave
nue Thames Embankment, Bridge street to the
Abbey. The line or route was Kept open by nearly
10,000 troops, representing all branches or the
service, anu in addition six hundred boys from
naval training ships were drawn up at
the base of the Nelson monument. In addi
tion to the military many thousands of police,
both mounted and on foot,were on duty under the
command of Sir Charles Warren. The military'
force was under command of lien. Gipps and col
Stirling of the cold stream guards. The particular
feature at Buckingham Palace was that the two
services were equally hftiored, the guards lining
one side of the roadway at Buckingham Palace
iraies and on the other side the Blue jackets were
posted. The same services were also represented
iu a like manner at the entrance to Westminster
Abbey.
THE QUEEN APPEARS.
The first of the royal procession was composed
of the Indian princes and a lew minor German
princes. Punctually at 11:15 a.m. the queen. In
an open carriage, emerged from the palace gatt*.
\l sight or her thousands ot voices were lifted up
in cheers, the applause oelng accompanied by the
music ot the many military bands stationed in
iront or the palace. The queen did not wear her
state robes, but was dressed in black, lier car
riatre was drawn by eight ponies. The Prince of
Wales, the Duke ot Edinburgh, the Duke of con
naugh, her soi^; Uie crown prince imperial
of Germany, the Marquis of Lornc,
Prince Christian, ot Schle&wig-Hoisteln, and
Prince Henry, or Hamburg, her sons-in-law;
and l'rinces Albert, Victor, and George, ot V\ ales,
Prince Airred, or Edinburgh, and Prince \Utliaiu,
of Prussia, her grandsons, all rode in tull uniform
beside the queen s coach as a body-guard. Y\ lien
the people at the palace gates had shouted them
selves hoarse cheering tor the queen, they con
tinued to cry out: "Long lite to the Prince and
Princess ot Wales!"
ROYAL SMILES FOR THE SHOUTING MASSES.
The queen, as she left the palace, seemed to be
In excellent spirits, and she smiled and bowed
irraclously to the people on every side. The
oueen's carriage was a large one, of chocolate
color; wheels red, and the royal arms in gold em
blazoned upon the panels. Ked morocco harness
was used for the horses,which were otherwise dec
orated with royal blue ribbons. All the servants
wore state liveries ot scarlet and gold. 1 be other
carriages containing members of the royal family
were of gorgeous character, horsed with four
bays each, and ail open. The procession pro
ceeded at a smart walking pace into constitution
yimt ?n<i then adopted a more deliberate gait.
LIKE A SCENE IN FAIRYLAND.
owing to the lateness ot the spring,the beautiful
green or the avenue trees, the sweet odors of the
uawthornes. and the splendid uniforms of the
mlUtan', coupled with the enthusiasm or the
crowd, made the occasion one or rerreshlng en
chantment. The procession slowly made lt? way
until the Wellington arch was reached, and then
the first introduction to the London struts en
sued. Emerging rrom the Wellington arch, the
Hrsi to greet the queen were the convalescent pa
tients and others at the SL George's Hospital,
which was packed from basement to roof, seata
having been erected tor man}' thousands on the
root oi the hospltaL
(JOING THROUGH PICCADILLY.
On reaching Piccadilly the queen was seca to
look up at Apsley House. And as she passed the
mansions or her intimate friends she glanced some
what hastily at their abodes, wore espw^aliy when
nasslmr the Duke ot Cambridge s. Baron Boths
chUd^f Baroness Burdetu-coutt'a, and John Bright*
old apartments. It was not until Devonshire
House was reached that me Queen began to realize
the grand preparations that had been made to
srreet her. Herethe marquis or Hartlngton had
had a soaclous gallery erected, from which many
hundredsof /ally-dWd ladies waved their
handkerchiefs and cheered the queen.
SPLENDID VISTAS OP CROWDED AMD BRILLIANTLY
DECORATED STREETS.
Faclnir Devonshire House, at the Bath Hotel,
another gigantic booth had been erected, and
irom this point to Westminister Abbey every
nolnt of vantage had been secured by contractors
i2lnx seats. Shop lrouts and hrst floors were
rented at from to awo each, and in some cases
even more. The rronts ot the Burlington Arcade,
