Ralrton, for Bessie G. Hlllyer, by her next mend, Curtis J. Hlllyer, Hied a bill against Grassle Bulkier pray ing mat "the pretended marriage may be decreed illegal and invalid in Its Inception, and annulled absolutely." The bill states that complainant Is aged eighteen years, and de(endant twenty; that December 20 a marriage ceresaony was performed in Baltimore .by Rev. W. M. Ferguson between the parties, a certificate of which Is appended. It Is averred "that the said marriage ceremony was snd is invalid and void, and that no legal marriage in fact took place between the parties.' The bill charges: "That the complainant never legally consented to said marriage, and that such formal consent as was given by her was obtained by fraudulent artifice and misrepresentation and by threats of such character as to absolutely deprive her of the power to give a rational consent thereto. That In addition to the fraud, misrepresentation and threat* re ported to by the defendant, the complaint says that the laws of the state of Maryland forbid the celebration of any marriage ceremony without license, and (provides that no such license shall lame for the marriage of any person under the age of twenty-one years unless llie written consent 01 the parents, attested by the signatures of two witnesses, is first flled witn the clerk. The MU further states that sluce the performance of the ceremony she has learned thai the defend ant was only twenty years old In the month of August last; that no written consent of the parents was 3led, and no consent was obtained by defend ant from his parents, both of whom reside here, she further charges that the license was obtained by the defendant falsely swearing that tie was twenty -one years of age, and he well knew It was false, and was made with the fraudulent purpose of securing an imme diate celebration of the ceremony before she should have time to recover such condition of mind as would enable her to act as a free agent in re spect to assenting to said marriage, and defendant knew In respect to obtaining said lleeuse the tact i that his age was material, and In making such | oath he commuted the crime of perjury. She states that by reason of such facts the marriage ceremony la not binding, and that there lias never been any consummation thereof by cohabitation or otherwise, but that immediately on the conclu sion of the ceremony she returned to the home of her parent*, neither of whom knew anything of the ceremony until after her return, and she has been there since, without having seen defendant.

Dctaraiacd M get a Bill Thranck u< Readjr M ?ak* Cmtm llaM to <o It. It Is probably as certain as anything In the future can t* that a tariff bill will paas the House this session. There will be a fight. It will begin almost as soon as the holiday recess la over. The "plan of campaign" adopted at Oak View will be carried out. It consists of a series of sharp bat tles and retreats. The majority of the democrat* will start out to get as much tariff reduction and as little protection as they can. But they are prepared to retreat sooner than take a defeat. Whenever they nnd that they cannot get what they would like they will compromise, taking the best they can get. They will follow this plan throughout, compromising as to every detail until theyiiave secured a bill that can pass the House. While starting out with tne avowal of an tagonism to protection as a principle and main taining that position to the last, they will go so far in their concessions probably as to accept a bill tor which Mr. Kandail and his followers can vote without doing violence to their protection theories. Yet it is expected to get a bill that will make a considerable reduction In the revenue. The proposition going Into the committee will be for pretty stiff-backed tariff reform without any recognition ot protection principles. Its man agement, it is understood, win be directed by Mr. Carlisle as much as if he were the chairman of the ways and means committee. The committee go into their work with their course already marked out lor them. Mr. Gay will go on thJ committee to represent Mr. Kandail, unless the Sneaker changes his mind, and the two tactions ot the party will probably come to an understanding of what is to be done before they get into the House. The4>lU will be taken up Item by item and an ageement or com promise reached at each Btep. Probably no one reduction will be made Just as at flrst proposed, but each Item will probably remain in the bill in a inodtned form. A great effort will be made to consider the matter dispassionately and not to In sist upon anything that would cause a serious disagreement. Mr. Carlisle and Mr. liandall have talked the matter over very carefully, and they both expect that an ngreement will be reached, and that they can pass over their differences of opinion without remark. The bill will certainly not be all that Is desired, but the President and the majority of his party can truthfully assert that they have tried to go turther, and that they have done the best they could. The important point will be tliut the rev enue will be reduced. THE SURPLUS IK THE TREASURY. As to the surplus that Is already In the Treasury, It win be the administration policy to let it stay as a bank account against necessary demand*, and as long as It Is not growing larger It will not be dangerous. The chances are, however, that both Houses ot Congress will pass a bill making pretty heavy demands on it. The Blair educational bill Is almost certain to pass through both branches of congress and be sent to the President. It was de feated in the last Congress through being smothered In the commluee and burled In the calendar. This plan can hardly succeed again, it is almost |sure to pass. It is about as certain of being \etoed by the President. The President has Intimated as much quite broadly, and somo who ought to know his views on the subject de cline that the bill cannot get his signature. The chances lor a large expenditure for fortifi cations are not promising. The appropriations will be kept as low us possible In all branches. District Uovcrnmea* Attain* the sew pumpino em;inks. Capt. Symonds hopes to have the new pumping engine-, to supply the ltjth street standplpe, lu operation by the 1st of February. The different parts ot the machinery aro now arriving. The old engine will be removed to the West Washington pumping station and be used there as a duplicate engine In case of need. Two new engines, one duplicate to i>e held in reserve, will be erected at the stand-pipe pumping station. THE COMMISSIONERS AND THE PCnOOL-BOARD BILL. The District commissioners will not give their approval to the school-board bill sent to congress by the Committee ot Oue Hundred. Mr. Webb, when asked about the matter by a Star reporter, said that the commissioners would take the same stand us they did last winter when what was known as t he citizens' bill was referred to them. The new bin, Mr. Webb said, embodied the same principles a-> the oue presented last year, it gave power to a school board to do as It chose, and at the same time did not relieve the Commissioners of res|x>rislblllty. The Commissioners were held responsible Tor tne administration of aflalrs In the District,including tin- management of the schools. , He did not think there was any demund for the passage of the new school bill, it was apparently advocated by the same persons who drew up the other bill. the brosnan license cask. No further action has been announced by the District commissioners respecting the Ilrosnan liquor license which the attorney for the District counselled them to cancel. The opinion was sent back to the attorney with a request that he give further consideration to certain points involved and the Commissioners have not yet had a report from him on these points. It was suggested to the Commissioners that the piatter betaken to court through an agreement with Mr. Brosnan and have the question ot the validity ot the license tested in court, but this was not con-idered practicable. The commlsslorers doubt whether tliey can revoke Mr. Brosnan's licence under the circumstances. ERRORS IN THE TAX-SAI.E LIST. The District Commissioners have written to First Auditor Chenowith as follows: "Koferrlng to your request for an explanation of the errors appeuring in tho delinquent tax list for 1887, accompanying claim 44,753, favor of Dunlap and Clark for }1,835.1*5. the commissioners nave the honor to submit the following copy of report of the collector of taxes of the District, which contains ;ill Hie Information the commissioners are able to obtain on the subject: 'The representations made by tue honorable First Auditor of the lolled States Treasury cannot be denied, as the printed Ust re ferred to contlrms life statement. There Is only this extenuation to bwniade, that the time usually provided for this purpose Is entirely t>)o short for the sl/e of the work. After the posting or the re ceipts lor the year ending June 30 ot any year, the time and forceof the collector's ofllce Is directed with alllts main to the collection ot tho water rentals, willcu fully covers tho months of July and August, and this branch of collection with other dally duties pertaining to tho office leaves only the time between for this work; and although "the contractors express themselves as able, and with the promise of the matter being furnished at the time stated, fully equal, 1 am sat lslled they were pressed lor time and, moreover, being distant could not have whatever of super vision the ofllce usually gives to the publisher ot the tax list. It has been usual, however, us far as my Knowledge is, to make reasouablo allowances and discount on either side In this work.'" OPPOSED TO REFUNDING TAXES. The commissioners have enclosed to Mr. Oliver C. Blockln, who asked whether back taxes paid on property will be refunded in case the property is redeemed therefrom, an opinion of the attorney of District, saying: -l ndoubiedly the certificate re quires the back taxes to be paid before deed is delivered, after that?no redemption. Back taxes need notbe paid until the deed Is asked for. In no event will legal back taxes, however paid, be refunded by my advice."

A cablegram from London says: The English politicians are thrown Into a grtfat flutter by Prince Bismarck's attempts to draw (rom Lord Salisbury a definite pledge to support the triple al liance, and are feverishly anxious to learn to what extent the premier has committed the country in that direction. The interview which took piaccon Friday between Lord Salisbury aud Count Von ilalzfcldt, the German ambassador, was obviously of so Important a character that the latter felt im peded to report personally to the Herman chancel lor, and he started Immediately for Fretdrtchsrulie to confer with his chle(.

The story of tbennding of ooo at the hnn.e 1 of Mr*. Millet, at Lewiston.Me., on Friday, la ndU Ing considerable Interest. Thirty-three years afO ltr. Millet was a prominent man in local affair*. In the cholera epidemic he contracted the dweaw and died, leaving a peculiar will. It provide that did his wife marry she should for feit a considerable portlou of his property; other wise all should revert to her. Hltu-e that Mute Mr*. Mlitot has led a very *?-centric life, she has lived alone in her little gothic houv at Mid dle and Low'ell at reets, studiously avoiding all in tervlewt with neighbor* or relative*, The cur tains of her house were generally drawn, and on the coldest days she was without a tire. Thla la explained froui the fact that she suffered from erysipelas and said that cold was much more agreeable to her than heat. In her mode of living she was most frugal, k-eplng no servants, many of the rooms In the house remaining in U>e same condition they were when Dr. Mli.er died, over thirty years ago, except that thev ar.i completely covered with the accumulating dual of all these years. Although Mrs. Millet was frugal, ahe could not be termed miserly, for duilng the past four years she has performed acts of chanty In a quiet and unostentatious manner. She was childless, and her nearest living relation* are nephews and nieces, who are now widely scattered throughout the country. Her death waa very auJden. she was found unconscious in her kttcuen. From this state she never recovered, and as tar as can be learned leaves no will, one of her nepMws, Kanacom Norton, Is a lawyer at lloulton, Me. He was at his stint's death, and. In connection with Westley blanchard, of Lewlstou, . searched the house, tlndlng bonds, coins, bills and other securi ties, whlcli, with her other property, will amount to over Ski,(too. The money w ,-,s lu part in an oid rashloned bureau, and tne rest in other curious resting-places. Among the bonds were aeveral of the City of Auburn. These were a special h< >bby with Mrs. Millet, she bought them whenever p.w slble, but hated the premium demanded. The property has been deposited by Mr. Norton In the First National Bank of Levvlston, and a statement by each of lier llvtng nephews aud nieces wuo will share the property. ? The l.adlr* Made too mu< h Malar. aea m. Dallas pboockes an injoktion auaimst TUB DfcCORAVlVE ART CLUB. The Ladles' Decorative Art Club, of Philadel phia, occupies the house l.MJ |*lne street, The club nutuiiers about one hundred ladies, aud they t ake lessons In metal chasing and wood carving. Next door, at 1314, lives <jeu. M. Dallas, a wealthy lawyer. He has been greatly disturbed by the poun ling and hammering of the ladies, and the other day he went Into court an1 applied (or an injunction. He complained that he and his family wer* annoyed by the beating of brass. He had been compell"d at times to abandon a room lu his Louse used as a reading room, on account of his inability to read there by reason of these noises, and sometimes he has qultt'-dthe house to seek relief in the open air from headache aud an noyance caused by the noises complained of. The noises were such as to Interfere with conversation, reading, and the usual enjoyments of home. Re cently, while Mr. Dallas' son was lying danger ously 111 with typhoid fever In the second-story tront room of Ids bouse, these noises penetrated the sick chamber, and greatly added to the anxiety and fear of Mr. Dallas and his Wife for the safety of their son. Mr. Dallas had am lavlts from mem bers of his family, frohi members of a neighbor s family, and from his family physician. baiunlay Judge Thajer delivered an opinion. The court laid down the law-that n man Is entitled to the comfortable enjoyment of hi* dwelling house. If his neighbors made such a noise as to lnteriere with the ordinary use and enjoyment of his dwelling house, so as to cause serious annoy. an<-e and dlsturbain*, the occupier of the dwelling I house Is eutltled to be protected from It, It Is no | answer to say that the defendant Is only making a reasonable use of Its property, because there aie many trades and many occupations which are not only reasonable, but necessary, to be followed, a:id still cannot be aliowisl lti the proximity o? dwell ing houses, so as to interfere wit h the comfort of their Inhabitants. Tlu* result was that the injunc tion was granted, and In all probability the I.adles' Decorative Art club will have to seek quaiters Ui a less-fashionable neighborhood. i The Teia* Claude Duval. j THE LONE HIGHWAYMAN WUO RoHRhD MANY STAGES OS HIS WAV TO PRISON. t'nlted States Marshal Cabell, or Dallas, Tex., reached St. Louis Sunday night with Jim New some, the lone highwayman, who, single-handed, robbed the stages of the Brownwoodand Baibnger line a score of times.
