yesterday by the republican congress to oppose
Gen. Boulanger in the election on the 27th

Citizens Before the Senate Committee
The room of the Senate committee on appro
priation! was tenanted for aome time to-day by
resident* of the District who were anxious to
secure favorable action by the committee on
items in the District appropriation bill in
which they are interested. Commissioners Webb
and Wheatley were present, ready to answer
questions. Messrs. John Joy Edson and A. 8.
Pratt asked for an appropriation of #25.000 for
the National homeopathic hospital. The board
of managers of the hospital think the useful
ness of the institution is much impaired by the
lack of sufficient and suitable buildings. They
want to build wards for male and female col
ored pattents, a maternity ward, and a new
kitchen. An elevator is also a necessity, and
the erection of fire-escapes is required by law.
To do these things, and to effect other improve
ments, the sum of t25.000 is needed, and the
request of the managers for an appropriation
of that sum is indorsed by Secretary ltayard,
who is president of the societv. Messrs. Albert
Behrend and Morris Clark pleaded for an im
mediate extension of 11th and 13th streets.
Messrs. Simon Wolf, John L. Vogt, Anton
Eberly, and Dr. Walter asked for $20,000 with
which to replace, by a brick structure, the
frame building now occupied by the German
American orphan asylum. Ex-Commissioner
Edmonds wan also present, and he chatted for
a while with Senators Plumb and liale.

LOUISIANA PLANTERS CALL OX COMMISSIONER OF
The delegation from the Louisiana Sugar
Growers' association, which is now in the city,
called iq a body thi? morning upon Commis
sioner of Agriculture Colmau and were pre
sented by the Hon. Mr. Wilkinson. Mr. John
Dyinond, the president of the association, ad
dressed a few remarks to the commissioner,
thanking him. on behalf of the association,
for what he had done in introducing and de
veloping the new diffusion process in the man
ufacture of sugar from the sugar cane. Mr.
Dymond said that planters could no longer af
ford to continue the old process of making
sugar, and that the new process was certain to
supplant it. He said that even the poorest of
the sugar planters would get out of their dif
ficulties much quicker by adopting the im
provement which had been introduced by the
department of agriculture. This admission,
coming from such a source, is.of unusual sig
nificance in its relation to the future sugar
production of this country. It will be remem
bered that this process is as well adapted to
the sorghum as to the sugar cane.

THE HOUSE DEADLOCK.
The House was still in a deadlock up to a late
hour this afternoon, every effort to adjourn
having proved fruitless. The democrats tried
to told a caucus this afternoon, but owing to
the rt- adlock they were compelled to postpone
it until this evening, when they hope to come
to an agreement and to fix upon a date for the
Oklahoma bill. It is thought, however, very
doubtful if they will succeed.
The most disappointed people at the action
of the Senate in going into secret session to
discuss Mr. Edmunds' resolution re
garding the attitude of European governments
toward interoceanic canals ou the American
continent, were the the diplomats from the
central and South American states. They
are vitally interested in tue matter,
and, having missed the open discussion
of Saturday, they determined to hear that
of to-day aud almost filled the diplomatic gal
lery. When the motion to go into secret ses
sion was adopted they departed, greatly disj
ointed, and expressing their inability to un
erstand the policy of Congress, or u branch
of it, which varied" so from day to day.

of false pretenses, was called?Mr. Campbell
Carrington for the defendant and Assistant Dis

DcHughes was arrested for false pretenses
in obtaining $49 from Mrs. Kate Smith under
promise of marriage, and subsequently it was
ascertained that while acting as an agent of an
insurance company of Baltimore he wrote to
the agents there that his daughter was lying
very ill, and asked for an advance of $100, and
then sending a telegram that the daughter had
died. The check was sent him, whereas he had
no daughter here, and the whole pretenses were
DETECTIVE BAFF'fl TESTIMONY.
The first witness was Detective Raff, who tes
tified that he had a conversation with the pris
oner when the latter was under arrest in the
12th-street station-house. Whi n witness told
Newman, that he had no right to represent
that his child was dead he replied that that
made no difference, for he was employed by
the company. He at first declined to state
where his room was. and witness told him he
would find it. The next day witness went to
the room and fouud some letters addressed to
Dallas M. DeHnghes, and he answered, "It is
a man whose life I have insured."
An objection was made and a recess taken.
Mr. Mullowney, in answer to the court, stated
that he was not conversant with the case, and
did not until this morning know that he was

hoped the case would be prepared.

Senator Quay was the central fignre to-day in
several little conferences on the floor of the
Senate. The longest and apparently most im

are resting for awhile, and the
practicai politicians are looking after the ends
of the strings which they expect to pull on
state patronage under the incoming adminis

is now wrestling. He expects to leave Wash

Florida and there he will seek the rest he needs.
He does not expect to return for a month or

DELEGATES FROM DAKOTA.
If the Qnwtlon of Statehood Is Sot
Settled They Want an Extra Session.
Judge Moody, one of Dakota'* Senators-elect,
has just arrived in this city, after having stop
ped over in Indianapolis to consult with Gen.
Harrison on matters of interest to those terri
tories which are now seeking admission as
states. Mr. Moody is extremely cautions in his
expressions just now, because he fears that bis
words may be quoted as coming from Gen.
Harrison. He says, however, that the chances
are all in favor of an extra session of the Fifty
"The leaders of the democrats in the House,"
said he to a Stab reporter to-day," are too far
apart on this subject; they cannot agree. If
they could come to an understanding as to Da
kota's fitness for statehood there would be a
renewal of the old trouble on the question of
division. Of course it is possible that this Con
gress may do something for us. but it seems to
me to be rather improbable just now."
There will be a delegation of Dakotans in
town during the latter portion of this week.
Fifteen or twenty of the more prominent
citizens of the territory are now on their way
here to do all in their power to push legisla
tion looking to the speedy admission of the
territory as two states. The delegation will be
headed by Judge Burtlett Tripp, chief Justice
of the supreme court of Dakota, and Goy.-elect
Mellette. The two great political parties sre
about equally represented in the delegation.
If it becomes apparent that nothing will be
done by the House before the 3d of March,
then the delegation will endeavor to secure
from republicans who will be in the next House
a memorial to President Harrison asking him
to call an extra session.
RinE TRACKS FOB ISAUOUBATION TBAINS.
a he District Commissioners have addressed
a letter to Senator Ingalls in relation to a bill
to authorize the Commissioners to permit the
temporary occupation and crossing of the streets
by the B. and O. railroad tracks to meet the
demands or increased travel at inauguration
times. The Commissioners say that "there
seems to be no reason why the "accompanying
bill should not become a iaw with the excep
tion that the Commissioners believe it to be fur
I I?oro. Pre^eral>'e if discretionary authoritv
i should be vested in them permitting ail rail
, road companies entering the citv of Washing
ton to lay temporary tracks for the accommo
dation of traffic for a period not exceeding 30
days during any influx of the people of the
L nited States into the city of \\ ashington.
1 he passage of a bill of this character would
seem to be reasonable and proper."

THE RIGHTS OF A FRAME HOUSE.
The question has been raised at the District
building whether a frame house has any rights
that a brick house is bound to respect." A few
days ago Mr. Frank W. Adams wrote to the
Commissioners as follows: "I am the owner of
a frame house in this citv. The house is en
tirely on my own land. My neighbor wishes to
build a party wall, and in order to do so will be
compelled to tear the side of mv house out be
cause my house is built close up to the division
line. Will you kindly inform me what the pro
visions of the building regulations are upon
this subject, and whether or not mv neighbor
can tear my wall down in this manner? Mv
house has been standing for a long time." The
Commissioners to-day wrote to Mr. Adams that
"under a decision of the court the builder of a
brick house has the right to remove a sufficient
Pa't ?n abutting frame building to place his
wall hnlf over the party line, on condition that
he makes good all incidental damages to the
THE MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE BBIDOE.
Recently, at the request of Maj. Raymond,
Messrs. O. W. G. Ferris A Co.. bridge engi
neers, of Pittsburg, examined the new bridge
constructed over Rock creek by owners of
property along the line of the Massachusetts
avenue extension. This is a private struc
ture, and as it has been announced
was intended only as a temporary bridge. A
bill is now pending in Congress to appropriate
SluO.OOO to build a bridge at Massachusetts
avenue. The examination referred to was
| made because citizens interested had in
timated a desire to turn the bridge over
to ^ the District, at the same time dedi
eating its approaches to the public use
The Commissioners will not, Maj. Raymond
said to-day, accept a bridge or otLer structure
until satisfied as to its security. In order to
be informed on the subject Pittsburg
experts were asked for their opinion
These experts report that the sec
tion of the end-panel top chord should
be 14.13 square inches, while the contractor
has put in but 12.70. Thev say that the com
pression members, such as the i'h<inix column
used m this structure, have long since received
the general disapproval of American
engineers, the principal objection to
sui-h construction being its inaccessibility
for inspection, cleaning and painting. The finish
or the bridge, they bel eve, is much below
what it should be for a structure in this local
ity, and not equal to that required for railway
structures. They say "the specifications
for the structure have not been com
plied with in regard to the proportioning
of the principal columns. While the bridge ia
perfectly safe for ordinary traffic, they would
recommend, in the face of the several defect?
which they mention, that the District purchase
the structure. There is a question at the Dis
trict buildings how far the Commissioners
and building inspector have authoritv over a
bridge erected as the one in question "has been
erected, entirely on private property. Under
the old regulations '-bridges" were
especially named as among structures
coming under the regulations. The word
was struck out in the revision made bv Col
Ludlow. Building Inspector Eutwisle "thinks
the Commissioners would have power to close
the approaches to an unsafe bridge.
?,,ca8e the Aqueduct bridge
Col. Ludlow condemned and closed it. This
action led to a settlement between the bridge
owners and the government, and the erection
of the free bridge.
THE NATLOB ROAD.
Dr. Tindall, the secretary of the District
Commissioners, has written to Mr. 8 M Gol
den in relation to his request to have Navlor
road included in the schedule of roads for'im
provement next year, "that *3.000 or #4.000
would put it in fair condition, but that it is too
late for the Commissioners to submit an esti
mate for it and the only way to get it before
Congress is for you to present it to the Senate
committee on appropriations, which is now
4|e District appropriation bill for
18JO. Capt. Symons, in reporting on Mr. Gol

of Ohio, to advance for argument the case of
Chae Chan Ping, appellant, against the United

who departed from the United States for China
on June 2. 1887. first having secured a return
certificate from the collector of the port of
fan Francisco as required bylaw. He returned
to the Lnited States on October 7, 1888. but

that the return certificate had been declared
void bv the Scott Chinese exclusion act of Oc

a writ of habeas corpus in the United (States
circuit court, which being refused an appeal
was taken to this court It is contended in his
behalf that the Scott act declaring the return
certificates void is unconstitutional and an ab
rogation of vested rights. It is sought to have
the case sdvanced for hearing on the ground
that it is one of great importance, in

holders of which have considerable propertv
