THE PANAMA^RESOLUTION.
Likely to Rest In the House Committee
on Foreign Affairs.
The coorse'fcf the Edmunds' PaD&ma resolu
tion since it passed the Senate has been s little
oat of the ordinary run of business.
When first called up in the House committee on
foreign affairs, a subcommittee made a unani
mous report in favor of its passage, and as Mr.
Bussell, of Massachusetts, was the only member
who openly opposed the measure, there was
every indication that it would be speedily
reported and passed by the House. A favor
i able report was made, iu fact, but the resolu
' tio# was recommttkd in order to allow
Mr. hussell to eiplain more in detail
1 his reasons for opposing it. Then it
transpired that Mr. Norwood, of Georgia,
I wished to make a minority report against the
. resolution, and he Joined forces with Mr. Rus
sell in preparing the document It was a very
long argument upou the subject, and
' the treatment was so able, that when
completed, the report was signed bv
Messrs. Hooker. Cathran. and Rayner in ad
dition to Messrs. Norwood and Russell. Here
were live of the seven democratic member*
of the committee arrayed against chairman Mc
Crearv's report, which represented the views of
the majority owing to the adherence of the re
publican member* of the committee. It is now
understood that the chairman is reluctant to
press the matter, and widen the gap between
himself and bis democratic colleagues on the
oommittee, taking the ground that the
immediate necessity lor the passage of tbe
resolution has disappeared, as a result of
recent events in France, so it is conjectured,
and that the matter will nbt coats again before
tits House dari&g this session.

Severe on the District Attorney.
A LETTER FROM CITIZENS OF SOUTH WASHINGTON
TO THE DISTRICT COMMISSIONERS.
The long controversy between the people of
South Washington and the Baltimore and Po
tomac Railroad company is known to every
body. As stated heretofore in The Star, they
have entered a protest Against the illegal occu
pancy of H street southeast by the railroad
company. The matter was, as "stated a few
days ago, referred to Attorney Biddle for re
port. In passing upon the case he said that
the people of South Washington had been re
peatedly notified that if auv reputable m?n
would tome forward and make affidavit that
the street was illegally occupied he would take
action against the company. Messrs. Dwver
and Parker, in a letter to the Com
missioners to-day npon the question, *av:
??Referring to our communication relative to
the obstruction of H street southeast by the
Baltimore and Potomac railroad company we
wish to call your attention to the opinion of
I the District attorney. We cannot but acknowl
| edge that it was devoid of all decency; in fact
I it was of an insulting nature, and transgressed
all rules governing official correspondence, and
we think the official deserves a severe repri
mand for using his official position to reflect
upon the citizens of South Washington By
reference to your official records you will find
that the District attorney has been instructed
to enter suit against the gas companv of
Georgetown for a violation of District laws
We wish to ask the question. Will he require
in this instance, some reputable man to come
forward present himself, and make affidavit?
If not. why does he not enter suit against the
railroad company, when, as we understand, he
has in an official opinion stated that all tracks
laid without the sanction of Congress are in
violation of the United State* statutes?
"Very respectfully,
"'?Chas. H. Parker,
''Philip N. Dwiu."

BXTUaXlO TO TXS TSXiSCal.
In examining the vaults of the (tamp divis
ion of th? internal revenue bureau, Treasury
department, laat Tuesday afternoon st the
close of business it wss discovered that
two 10-ponnd tobacco stamp books wsrs
missing, representing a rnlue of several
thousand dollars. Investigation showed that
their absence from the vault was due to s mis
take whereby two tobacco books had been sent
to the collec tor of internal revenue at Pittsburg
instead of two mull books, for which he had
made a requisition. He was immediately
telegraphed and replied that he had received
the two books, which he returned.
The incident has given rise to a rather sen
sational story, to the t ffect that a thief had suc
ceeded in carrying off #4,000 worth of stamps
from ths Treasury.
EXCITEMENT IN A BAR-ROOM.
A Pistol Leveled at a Detective's Head
by a Man He Tried to Arrest.
Detectives Carter and Mahon were standing
in front of the National hotel about 10 o'clock
last night when a young man named James
Rooney claimed their protection, saying three
men were after him, as he believed, to shoot
him. The officers went over to the Metropolis
tan hotel, where the three men complained of
were standing on the sidewalk. When the de
tectives approached one of the three, ffrnS.
Warwick, went into the hotel. Ths others?
Arthur F. Kirby and A. B. Tompkins?were ar
rested by Detective Carter, while Detective
Mahon followed Warwick into the bar-room.
He was standing in front of the bar. The offi
cer approached nim and said, "I want you."
"Wait till I get a drink," said Warwick.
Then he turned toward the bar, but instead of
calling for a drink he drew s revolver and.
pointing it directly toward the detective, said:
"Now, take me if you can." The offioer made
a lunge at Warwick to get the weapon from
him. Then there was a general scramble for
the front door by those in the saloon, who ex
pected every moment to see some one killed.
Warwick managed to escape, and planting
himself in the doorway leading to tne office
he again leveled bis weapon at the
detective. When the officer made another at
tempt to catch Warwick the latter ran out of
the door and along the avenue. At 6th street
he turned and started for the corner of C street
at the National hotoL Detective Mahon drew
his pistol as he was in pursuit of the fugitive,
and when he turned the corner of 6th street he
tired one shot without effect. A second shot
was fired, but like the first, it did not take ef
fect. Detective Wheeler, who was coming
down 6th street in front of the living bul
lets, captured the fugitive and turned
hitn over to Detective Mahon. who es
corted him to the first precinct station, where
he was released on $50 collateral. The weapon
was not found ou him, and it is thought that he
passed it to some friend. His companions
were released on t'^0 collateral each. This
morning in the Police Court Tompkins and
Kirby were chargcd with threats toward
Rooney, and Warwick was charged with carry
ing concealed weapons and assaulting an officer.
The cases went over until Tuesday.
PATRIOTIC WHEELMEN.
How They Celebrated George Washing
ton's Birthday.
The Capital bicycle club held its usual patri
otic celebration last night. It took the form
of what was called by the amusement commit
tee "a peanut barbecue," the program com
prising also a burlesque representation of
! the forthcoming inaugural ceremonies.
As customary each member of the club brought
with him a book as a contribution to the
library. The club was out a bushel or so of
peanuts, a barrel of apples and a couple of
kegs of cider by the entertainment, but
to more than balance this was a tempting
array of new books. Many friends of the club
men came in as guests to witness the inaugural
pageant, to sip club cider, eat club peanuts,
and smoke club pipes. The inaugural parade
passed twice around the large reception
room before coming to rest before the
platform, representing the east portico of the
capitoL The procession was under the cotn
mund of Grand Marshal Maj. Gen. Beaver,
personated by Mr. Allen. The order was as
follows: Platoon of mounted police, repre
sented by Dr. Rchooley; Prof. Susie,
personated by Mr. Burnett, and the
full Marine band. comprising the
famous kazoo-plavers of the club; the Penn
sylvania militia. 10.000 strong, repiesented by
Mr. Forney, who formed the body-guard to the
l'rcsidcnt-elect. Then came the following: Pres
ident Cleveland, personated by Mr. Wentworth;
the President-elect, by Mr. T. P. Borden; CoL
Lament, bv Mr. Learning; Mr. Thurman, by
Mr. Low; "Mr. Morton, bv Mr. Wilson; Mr.
Blaine, by Mr. Seely; and the Chief Justice, by
Mr. Godwin. Following were a number of
members of the club whose faces
were concealed representing the veiled
cabinet, others representing a committee of
the United States Senators. At the end of the
procession came the "Society of Advanced
Thought," comprising Belva Lockwood, per
sonated by Mr. J. McK. Borden, and Susan B.
Anthony, by Mr. Bacon, and the G. A. B., re
presented by Mr. Dodge.
Among the group of Senators, one that at
tracted especial notice for his unique costume
and wild, woolly appearance was the now Sena
tor from Dakota, who was presented by Dr.
Lane. The ceremonies st the east portico were
carried out with due solemnity. President
Cleveland was sworn "into the soup," and the
the President-elect and Vice-President duly
took the oath and made speeches. At least
the President-elect essayed to make a speech,
but Mr. Seely. who was costumed as a plumed
Knight insisted on making the speech for him.
A reference to George Washington brought out
a quick response from Greenough's statue,
which was then discovered in winter quar
ters behind a screen. The screen was
removed and the statue represented with
much fidelity both as to attitude and as to
scarcity of clothing by Mr. Dyrenforth.took part
in the subsequent proceedings. There was
much good natured fun about the performance.

NO CHANGE IN THE SLATE.
Alterations Will Not be Made Until
Gen. Harrison Reaches the City.
There is nothing new in the cabinet gossip
from Indianapolis save that from the fact that
law-partner Miller, who has been assigned to
the Attorney-Generalship, has intimated that
he will not be in Washington more than three
or four months, which leads to the belief that
Gen. Harrison has selected him for advioe is
the trying times of the early part of his ad
ministration, and when the matters have
quieted down some other man will take the
law department of the government and allow
Mr. Miller to return to his lucrative private
practice.
It is believed that Gen. Harrison has left the
Navy department and perhaps one other cabi
net office open so as to adjust things when he
fets to this city next week, and provide for a
acittc coast representative and for a New York
man if one can be agreed upon. The World
savs to-day that it is rumored that Gen. Har
rison has asked both Messrs. Miller and Piatt
to meet him in Washington for a conference
next week.
BLAIXB HAS SOT DICTATED.
As to the charge that has been circulated to
some extent that Mr. Blaine has urged that
certain men be selected and that others should
not be considered, the Htrald correspondent says:
"Onegeutiemsn said to me to-nignt that Gen
eral Harrison told him yesterday that he had
not yet received a single intimation from Mr.
Blaine since the day of ths election, either by
telegraph, letter, or messenger, as to whom he
would ukt to see in the oaluast or oat ti it"

ABBANOINQ THB PARADE.
The grand marshal's headquarters, in s room
on the third floor of the Pacific building, was a
center of activity this morning. Maps of the
route were spread over tables. Oen. Hastings,
the grand marshal's chis> of staff, was there,
and he was busily eng iged in preparing the
material to be printed in the order
which will announce the full order of
the parade. Mr. Myron M. Parker, the mar
shal of the civic parade. Oen. Axline. Gov.
Foraker's chief of staff, and Mr. Edwin 8. Stu
art, of Philadelphia, marshal of the Pennsyl
vania brigade in the civic line, were in con
sultation with him. Many of the Washington
civic organizations that expect to parade had
not reported to-day, and thev may be left out
of the line. Gen. Hastings hoped to have the
whole list of organizations made oat, and all
the aids of all the various marshals named in
time to have the order promulgated Monday.
WHY THB cm TROOP WILL HOT COME.
The Philadelphia Press to-day says: "The
City Troop, which has never attended an
inauguration except as the President's personal
escort, will not be in Washington on March 4.
This has been fully decided upon. A variety
of reasons are given, but the tact that General
Harrison has invited his old regiment to act as
his body guard, and thus relegated the Troop
to an inferior position in the event of its at
tendance at the inaugural ceremonies, is said
| to be the real reason.
BA1LBOAD ARRANGEMENTS.
Daring the itiaugur.i.ion busiuess the Balti
more and Potomac wdl use their depot exclu
sively for passenger trains from north and west
and through trains from the south. The local
trains from the south will use Maryland avenue
and 9th street (the freight depot) as the tem
porary terminus, and all trains with organiza
tions will also stop there. The road expect* to
handle a much larger number of passengers
than four years ago, notwithstanding the tact
that the Baltimore and Ohio has this year ad
ditional facilities for handling northern passen
gers.
THE MILITARY.
Gen. Axline, who is Gov. Foraker's chief of
staff, and will serve as such in the inaugural
parade, will remain in the city until after the
inauguration. Gov. Foraker will be marshal
of the third division, comprising all the troops
outside of the regular soldiers, the district na
tional guard, and the Pennsylvania national
uard. Gen. Axline figured up to-day that this
ivision will number about 6,100 men. It will
comprise a number of famous organization*?
the New York seventh, the third Connecticut,
the eighth Massachusetts, the fifth Maryland,
the Baltimore Light Infantry, and others.

coat-of-arms of the Treasury. 10>j Ov feet,
with radiating standards, six in each snield.

very besatifuL ?
THE STREET DECORATIONS.

porter to-day that Dr. W.G. Duckett, chairman
of the sub-committee between 21st and 22d. on
Pennsvlvauia avenue, has reported that he had
personally called upon the residents of his dis
trict, and that the feeling in favor of decorat
ing on the 4th of March uext was universal. A
similar report was also received from Col.B. F.

informing him that they would attend the in
auguration in a body. /
Work was begun to-day erecting the review
ing stand in front of the White House. This
stand was the one that once stood in Athletic
park.
The Brigtitwood Railroad.
CAPT. SYMONB THINKS THB TBACKS SHOULD BE fit
THB PIDDLE OF THB SO AS.
The Stab has heretofore referred to the pe
tition of the Farmer club, as well as the resi
dents and property-owners along 7th street
road, protesting against the placing of the
tracks of the Bright wood railroad in the
center of the road, as it would serioasly
interfere with the travel. The matter was
referred to Capt. Symons for his views. In
his report to the Commissioners he says:
??It is my opinion that when a road is as wi'de
as the 7th street road that the proper place for
a railroad track is in the center of the road
way. In the case of the 7th street road the
track can be put in the center of the roadway
and there will be space enough remaining for
wagons on each side of the track. I suppose
that the protest of the farmers against the oc
cupation of the center of the roadway by the
railroad track arises from the fact that the center
of the roadway is not occupied by the macadam
portion of the roadway, the sides being simply
graveled and not in as good condition to haul
over at all times as the center. The proper
treatment of this road, in my opinion, is to put
the track in the center of the roadway ana to
macadamize the roadway to its fall width, so
that there will be ample room for travel on
macadam roadway on each side of the railroad
track.
Suit fob a Restraining Order.?The Wash
' ington and Georgetown railroad company, by
Mr. Enoch Tottau, to-day filed a bill acaintt the
District of Colombia and Henry L. Cranford,
to restraint the issuing of a certificate for work
done on Pennsylvania avenue, between 19th and
23d streets, for 1787.2&. The complainant states
that the work was done by defendants on their
own responsibility without notioe to them, and
??art that the law wm not complied with.
They farther state thaton January 96 the credits

CUANOUB AMD BLACKBURN.
Denial of the Sensational Accounts of aa
Altercation Between Than.
Visitors to ths Senate wing of the Capitol to
day had ojas for but two people?Senator
Blackburn, of Kentucky, and Senator
Chandler, of New Hampshire. The cause
therefor could be found in tha highly-flavored
newspaper account of s personal enoountar al
leged to bars taken place between tha two Sen
ator* above mentioned. The collision was said
to have taken placa at a meeting of the Senate
select committer on Indian tradersbips
held last evening, and at which Senator Chan
dler submitted a report that criticised to a
caustic degree Secretary Vilas and sx-lndian
Commissioner Atkins. Certain statements in
this report were, it was said, of a nature that
was offensive to Mr. Blackburn, and be
called upon Mr. Chandler to substantiate hi*
conclusions.
This, Mr. Chsndler. the account said, refused
to do. and the result was an interchange of
language in which Mr. Chandler waa alleged to
hare atigmatlzcd the Kentuckian aa a "slave
driver." while the epithets of ??scoundrel" and
"liar, with profane adjectives, were said to
have been nred at Mr. Chandler by bi*
burly opponent. Then Mr. Blackburn
was described a* lifting Mr. Chandler out of
his chair by his right ear. and following thi*
was a scene of confusion and strife, which was
ended bv Senator Faulkner'* loosening the
Kentuckian'a grip aud taking him out of the
room. The only other witnessea were Senators
Cnllom and Plait and the clerk to the com
mittee.
rXDIflXiXT BE*ATOM.
Senators conversant with the fact^in the esse
were very indignant to-day when spoken to of
the matter, and Senator Chandler was ?spe
cially annoyed at the rumors which had been
spread abroad. He talked of the aff iir, to a
limit extent, to a Stab reporter and said:
SENATOR CHANDLER'S POSITIVE DENIAL
"I do not know how such a story could get into
circulation. There was a disagreement in com
mittee, it is true, and a* to it* nature I shall, at
preseat. say nothing. I will say. however, that
ueither Senator Cnllom. Senator Piatt. nor the
clerk to the committee gave out one word of
the affair last night I do not know who gave
it out. That there was an enormous quantity
of vile, abusive language used, or that I waa
the subject of a battery, or that I waa even
touched, are falsehood* that have not the
slightest foundation."
"ALL BOSH."
Senator Cullom was averse to saying any
thing aa to the minute particular* of the alleged
trouble, but he did tell a Stab reporter that the
published account of the diaugreeuieut waa
?all booh."
Senators Piatt, Cnllom. and Chandler were in
frequent consultation throughout the early
part of the afternoon, and the two former were
seen to sign a typewritten paper submitted bv
Mr. Chanaler?presumably a statement whicL
he will either read to the Senate aa a question
of personal privilege or give to the pre?s.
Shortly before 2 o'clock those three Senator*
went down to the room of the committee on the
judiciary and were locked in there for some
time with Senator Edmunds. It is generally
believed that the matter will come up in the
Senate before adjournment this evening.
SENATOR BALCKBUBN COCLD SOT BE FOUND.
but Senator Faulkner waa seen. He said he
would not affirm or deny anything in connec
tion with the matter, but he smiled when in
formed that Mr. Chandler denied that any as
sault had been committed on him. lie said
that whatever had been given to the press
had not gone from him, and be knows that
Mr. Blackburn had refused most emphatically
to say one word of the affair, turning away six
teen reporters last night. Mr. Faulkner said
the story had probably been retold bv some of
the Senators who had learned of the occur
rence from those Senators who were present in
the committee-room when the fracas occurred.

The Improvement in the stock market in
progress - late Thursday afternoon contin
ued at the opening this morning, and first
prices on a very moderate volume of bus
iness were from k to 1 per cent
higher than Thursday's final figures.
Northern Pacific preferred. Union Pacific, and
Atchison *howing the largest advances. The
demand for stocks at the higher level was not
auflicient to maintain the improvement, how
ever, and the market became heavy except
ia a few stocks, and small fractional
losses were sustained from the opening
prices during the early trading.
Oregon Navigation and Burlington were the
specially strong stocks, rising 1 per cent and %
Cr cent respectively, while cotton oil was
a weak spot, losing 1U per cent followed
by St Paul preferred, witn The others gen
erally declined slight fractions and the down
ward movement coa tinned until toward 11
