I The board of managers of the New York mari time exchange have recently prepared a plan for the improvement of the code of maritime signals in international use. The present code was estab lished by the English government in 1885, and since then many new seaports have been created. The president ot tne New York exchange wrote to president Cleveland suggesting that steps be taken I to atcure a conference of all maritime nations to concert measures for revising the code and adopt ing measures for the greater security ot life and property at sea. "Fatal collisions," he writes, "too often occur owing to tbe increased number, size | and speed ot steamships. Many such accidents I would be averted were steamers required to Indi cate in fogs not only their presence, as at present, but their direction." The President promised to I give tbe matter consideration on his return from the west. Hosieries Reported.?W. J. Howard reports the larceny ot $3.50 worth of various articles. Ada C.

The Case Brought Up Aural n Before the Medical Association Laat Ereolnf. ^ tbe mee^nST of the Medical Association of the District last night, two members of the com mittee having charge of the case offered a minori ty report on the charges against Dr. Sowers, of a character adverse to that physician, but as no majority report had been made, that of the minor ity could not be received, and was voted down. The conclusion reached by the majority of the committee was That the evidence produced was not sufficient to convict Dr. Sowers of the charges preferred. ?nrthir ?Jon0rlt7 ,t.??k l8Sue wltbthl* conclusion. .. Dr* Hamilton had produced nnr ?lncT tePdln8' to show that Dr. Sowers vfi? .HI14? zed tbe publication of the inter himself concerning the President's niifr rj^ ?Pon,whlch the charges are based. As the UiS stands now, since the minority report can 1 ved without the majority report,and the majority do not consider a report necessary, the A come before the association again, unless Dr. Hamilton applies to have the committee and the charges brought before the asso ciation as a body. This he may do to bring out the additional evidence he is said to have. _J?b? counter-charge against Dr. Hamilton was tbe association, and It Is under stood that the committee will ignore it as trivial or unsustalned, as the majority of the committee have done with Sowers' case.

LARNER DE FENDS THE REPORT AND OITE8 HIS EXPLANATION OF THE WORD "DIVERSION." The meeting of the citizens' committee of One Hundred last night was attended by about sixty members. 1 he fact that the committee was to be reorganized for the year, and the expectation that the action of Mr. Noble d. Larner's subcommittee on streets, avenues and alleys, that had a hear ing before the District commissioners last week in reference to estimates lor street Improvements, would be called up for review, gave special inter est to the meeting. Before proceeding to business 1 a number of changes In the committee were noted by the secretary.

Herrell, and secretary. Law rence Gardner. MR. FEVDALL'S ADDRESS. "Before taking up the business next la order," said Mr. Fendall, after announcing the result of the ballot, "I desire to thank you for the courtesy which in the past you have shown me, and for the approval Implied in again electing me to preside over your deliberations; and I beg to assure you ? tbe responsibility as well as the e offlce or President of the Represen tative Citizens' Committee of One Hundred. ?ay not he improper for me to avail myself of this occasion to call attention to misunderstand ing3 which seem to be entertained by some of our fellow citizens as to your object and purposes. Upon your organization you published a statement of your object and purposes. The position there assumed was that of co-operating with the muni cipal authorities when right and opposing them when wrong. But you have not sala whether you are for or against the present form of government to' the District, and because of this silence has arisen these misunderstandings. It is alleged that you have, as an ulterior object, the subversion of the present government, and a return of the abuses oi suffrage. Certainly you have declared no such purpose, and, so far as I know, entertain none. On the contrary, I feel Jus tilled in saying that you favor a further trial of the government we now have, and to that end are willing to consider any measures for Its improvement which experience has shown, or may show, to be desirable and prac ticable. * "There Is another matter to which I desire to attract your attention. The United States has assumed Its proportion of the expenses of main taining Its capital city, but has not opened .ts ireaaury one uoilar beyond that proportion, 'iue revenues of the District are, therefore, strictly limited, and demand strict economy In their ex penditure. Suppose the taxes collected from the citizens of the District to amount to two millions oi donars annually, and that these taxes are all appropriated by congress, then the United States pays two millions more as Its proportion of taxes ?n lt9 property, making an aggregate of four millions, in round numbers. Out of this amount must dust be taken about IVJOO.OOO for Interest .11. e ?ktrlct debt, leaving less than three millions ior all other purposes?streets, schools, police, firemen, salaries, charities, buildings, con tingencies, &c. It is evident that no one oi these interests can have all its friends think necessary. One hundred additional policemen may compel a reuuctlon elsewhere, which, If the two Interests were considered side by side, would not be agreed i to. The same Is true of streets, flre-englnes. engine-nouses, schools, and all the other Interests! it ioiiows, I tulnit, that recommendations lor the expenditure 01 revenues should tirst be considered | py a Joint subcommittee representing ail the in terests before you should be called upon to act on such recommendations. "The jury system, under existing laws, works great hardship to our citizens, by withdrawing tuein from tnelr business ror lndellnlte periods and thereby compelling them In seif-defeuse to shirk Jury duty wnen possible. You should well cousidcr whetuer some further legislation is uot needed on the subject.

LARNER REPORTS. During the call of committees for reports Mr. Noble D. Lamer, from the committee on streets, avenues, and alleys, reported that in accordance with the instructions of the committee of one hundred, his committee had had an Interview with the commissioners, and presented the report and schedule of streets for Improvement approved at ?? meeting of the committee. As a re suit Mr. Larner said that he had received a communication from the secretary of thft l commissioners stating "that the subject will re celve the careful consideration of the Commissioners." "We therefore," said Mr. Larner as he folded up the commissioners' brier letterand gut It back Into his pocket, "executed the trusr nposed upon us, amfthere is nothing furcherto I say. It ?as expected that this reference to thp 1 hearing of Mr. Larner's commltu? ? ah ^e com Mr. E. B. Hay, from the committee on llirht. re. Por^ that the District Commissioned in spouse to the committee's request to have eiurin? houses located in the northeast iwd soutKS. tlons, had agreed to recommend thf5SSSTS &2SJSSS? IMPROVEMENTS WANTED IN ANAC08TIA. Mr. Frlzzell, as chairman of the committee on roads and bridges, made a report in reference to resolution of Association No. 8, relative to Im provement of streets, 4c, in Anacostia. Mr Friz. zell-8 report said "that several members of' yoS I committee have personally surveyed the premi ses and And that, in addition to the village of Ana costia being a thrifty and prosperous settlement, many of Its citizens are of the progrlSSv^rt! anMt now needs only government to make this village reflect in mlnature, the beauties of ltslarwer sister The streets asked to be improved arelSu- thec^ ter of the village, are in the direct line of approach to three churches, and near also the flne nubiir school building.

THE CNKEPRE3ENTEP SECTION. Mr. Frlzzell said, after presenting tlie report* ! t&at bis committee felt some delicacy about mat lng recommendations concerning the portions of the county that had been represented In the Com. mltteo of one Hundred by the gentlemen who had withdrawn. Chairman Fendall said that the eighth district, represented by Mr. Frlzzell and his colleagues, ex ; tended from Rock creek on the west to the eastern boundary of ihe District, and they were compe tent to consider and make recommendations con cernlng the needs of any part of that I district, captain Tyler suggested and Mr. Mullett moved that the report made by Mr. Frlzzell be referred back to the committee with a request that It submit a report covering t he needs of ihe whole county. Capt. Tyler said the Committee of One Hundred had already sent to the Commissioners one report not well matured, and was opposed, he said, to sending another, as, he asserted, such action tended to weaken the in fluence of the committee or One Hundred, and to defeat the objects for which it was formed. This report If adopted, he said, would go to the commis sioners as a report of the Committee of One Hun urea. Mr. Frlzzell Insisted that this report in re lation to Anacostla was made upon matters re ferred to the committee from the local association, and to be of avail should go to the Commissioners at once before the estimates for the year were completed. He spoke or the committee organized In the other section of the county which pro posed to represent to the Commissioners the needs of that section. A member of the committee said that this county committee was composed of "outsiders," and the committee of One Hundred had nothing to do with it at all. Air. Mullet's motion to recommit was carried. ? RESOLUTION NOT ADOPTED. Mr. Wilson offered a resolution that the presi dent be instructed to request the Commissioners to furnish the committee with a copy of their estl mates, at the same time they submit them to the Secretary of the Treasury, and that the secretary have them printed and furnished each member. "And have them printed at the Government Printing Office," added a member of the committee, [ in the rear of the hall, with a laugh. Mr. Wilson's resolution was defeated by a vote of 44 to 2a A PROPOSAL TO RECONSIDER MR- LARNER'S REPORT. When the chairman announced that the com mittee was ready for new business, Mr. John T. Mitchell remarked that he hoped they would bring up the matter of report presented to the Commls* , sloners In relation to streets and avenues, as they I owed it to the Commissioners as well as to them j selves to reconsider that matter. Mr. E. B. Hay made a motion to reconsider the vote by which that report was adopted by the Committee of One Hundred. Col. Dyer suggested that after a report had been adopted and presented to the commissioners and the committee making It had been discharged, so far as that matter was concerned, it was too late [ to reconsider it. He made a point of order that the matter could not be brought up now. but the chair overruled the point. WHT MR. HAT MADE HIS MOTION. Mr. Hay said In support of his motion that he made it in Justice to the Commissioners and in Justice to the committee. The report was made by a committee whose chairman, as they knew, was fearless in any cause he believed to be right. He would not, he said, assert that the report was forced on the committee or passed by duress. It was brought up at the la?t meeting, and It was urged that the committee would have to act with expedition if It were desired to submit their re commendations to the Commissioners before they prepared the estimates to be sent to the Treasury on the 1st ot October. Though the report, was adopted there seemed to be consider >ble misun derstanding as to the points It contained. When I a standing committee made a report it was deemed that such committee had given full con sideration to the subjects it contained, certain questions were asked of members of the commit tee as to facts, and were answered from memory, i .. Committee of One Hundred had confidence in the subcommittee and had adopted U?e report on the statements thus made. From vmat was said it was supposed that the committee had war rant for stating that the present Com missioners and their predecessors in office had diverted certain appropriations from the improvement of certain streets to others not men tloned in the bllL But there had been gathered certain statements and figures which would be brought before the Committee of one Hundred, for the instruction of the committee and to allow them all to become ramlllar with the facts. There was no one, Mr. Hay said, who would deny that the , Commissioners were good, honest men, and that It was impossible for them, under existing legal re strictions, to divert appropriations. Capt. Tyler said that while lie thought that action upon the report had been tasen too hastily, and that it should have been [ printed beiore consideration, yet It seemed to him that the rei?ort had been disposed of after It had been adopted and sent to the Commissioners, and the commute discharged from further considera tion ox the subject, ne urged CoL Dyer's point of oruer, and made a motion that the committee do not sustain the ruling oi the chair on that point. Judge Upton made a point, which the chulr sus talned, that It was too late to appeal from a de cision of the chair alter the motion in question had been presented and a speech made In support of it. Mr. Scott Smith said he could accomplish the same object by another motion, and moved to lay Mr. Hay's motion on the table. The motion was put to a vive-a-voce vote, and the chair declared that it was carried, upon which there was considerable applause. mk. larner's replt. Mr. Lamer, whoiiad sat quietly during this pro ceeding, then arose and was about to speak when objection was made that he was out ot order. Mr. Lanier said he Intended to make a motion, and the chair permitted him to proceed. He had been no tified, he said, that he was to be "chewed up" at that meeting, but not, as he was Informed, by Mr. Hay. He was utterly surprised at what he had heard from Mr. Hay. Mr. Hay was one of the first men to come to his office on the day following the adoption of his report and congratulate him, and say there was no question but that the commis sioners had diverted appropriations. Mr. Laruer expressed regret that Mr. Hay (who had left the hall) was not present. "Mr. Hay is gone," he said. "He cannot hear it, but he oan read it." There was no man, Mr. Lamer said, who had ever taken a more active or more honest part in securing improvements for Washington than him self. He had always been an ImDrovement m?n He had nothing to take back In I his report, lie believed he was as well posted on the subjects treated as any man. When he had been connected with the municipal government he had worked to secure improvements, and It was a matter ot grati fication to him that his Ideas had been carried out by those who followed him. There had been a great deal said, he went on, of the interview with the Commissioners. There had been a great deal said of a burlesque nature, and a great deal said that was not true. He read a published statement by commissioner Ludlow denying that there had been personalities In speech or action, such as had been described. Mr. Hughes here interrupted to ask whether this subject had not been laid on the table and Mr Larner was not out or order. Mr. Lamer claimed the right to make a personal explanation, since the committee of which he was chairman had been assailed by Mr. Hay. Mr Hay had said that he (Mr. Larner) had stated that the present Commissioners had taken the money ap propriated for a certain street and expended It on another street not appropriated for. Mr. Lamer de nied that he made any such statement. Wbat he had said was that when the appropriation was made for various streets and the estimates of the Commissioners had been cut down, the sloners, instead of expending the money pro rata upon the streets in the schedule, had lert out some streets entirely. Mr. Lamer said he was positive that the public agreed with his committee in this matter. He said ne had received many congratu lations from citizens. It was a subject he felt competent to handle. He felt that he had done nothing but the right and said nothing that was not true. The question seemed to be merely one of words, upon the meaning of the word "divert." The committee claimed and told the commissioners that they did not in tend by "divert" to convey the moaning that some persons tried to place upon It. They referred to the omission or streets from those scheduled for improvement. They ha^ cited cases where it had been done. Two ot the com missioners at once accepted their explanation. One would not accept It until he got into such a position that he nadfto accept it Had it not. been, he sald,for some officious persons outside the com mittee of One Hundred this trouble over the word "diversion" would not have arisen. There were persons, he said, who were doing all they could to break up this committee. "I will teU you," he said, "some things I heanl to. day in reference to efforts made by certain persons to disrupt this committee that would m?Ei yog open your eyes." Mr. Lamer said that the propo sition he rose to make was that, it the committee desired it, the word "diversion" be stricken out ol the report. A member suggested that that could not be done now, and Mr. Lamer took his seat. MR. WILLS* WANTS TO Pitt Mr. Welter, rising, said that as secretary of tlx committee on streets, avenues and alleys, he would like also to make a personal explanation in Mil Uon to the statements made by Mr. Lamer. The chair said that Mr. Weller was out of order: rum such a privilege extended to the chairman of the committee ought to be sufficient. Wr. Weller sal down and a motion to adjourn prevailed.

Albany, October 5.?Several personal friends of the democratic State candidates left lor New York early this morning to urge the democratic State committee to in .ike ex-Mayor Edward Mur phy, Gov.

London, October 5.?chamberlain's organ re sents very bltteriy Edward Dice)'3 article in tne Nineteenth Century in favor of the unionists bo coming merged in the conservatives and suggest ing the expediency ot shedding Chamberlain and his little band of radical unionists. It says that though the unionists disagree with Gladstone's plan they are united In favor of the principle of autonomy for Ireland, and declare they have found It easier to combat Gladstone's arguments than to cope with the blundering Incapacity of the present government. This is the strongest anu ininlsterlai declaration which has come from the unloulst side, but it Is always to be obvrved that the Birmingham tost Is more Gladstonlan than chamberlain, who Is personally ant-agonistic to Gladstone. Indeed, the quarrel arose from tl^e fact that when Gladstone lormed his ministry Chamberlaln a^ked that a certain man be put in a certain past. Gladstone replied that as prime minister he was responsible for the whole of his government. A breach was thus opened which was never healed. Gladstone has at length taken note of the inter ference ot the police with liberal meetings, whether ln-doors or out-doors. If the podce per sist they will be excluded from liberal meetings, and then some awkward scenea may occur. E.HCLAXD iMOTHE PEACE POWERS.
