not say I am much elated by the victory

that the democratic party has met with
defeat. I have my fears that the victory
of the re-publicans may make them even
a little more indifferent about protecting
human rights undct- the Constitution th.tr
when they were in power before. It is to
the sharme of the republican party that it
could protect the rights of American citi

was obeye.d in the southern states and the

MR. MILLS' AMENDMENT
Not Likely to Pans the Senate, Although
as It Should Remalu in the Sundry
Civil Bill it Would Mean an
It is not believed that the amendment to
the sundry civil bill proposed by Mr. Mills
repealing the law under which the Secre
tary of the Treasury has been able to
issue bonds to meet the emergency of the
last several months will pass the Senate,
though it is not absolutely certain that It
will not. A considerable number of the
radicals are deeply in earnest in their de
sire that It should be adopted, and insist
that it will be. The chances are, however,
that the danger to which it would subject
the treasury will cause a majority of the
Senate to take a more conservative view
and not deprive the Secretary of the only
means he has of replenishing the gold
reserve whenever it shall have been de
pleted. The conservatives do not believe
that Congress. after refusing to provide
any legislation for the safety of the treas
ury, will go still further and repeal the
even imperfect safeguards of the existing
Mr. Mill. in Earnest.
Mr. Mills is said to be very much in
earnest, and determined to secure the
adoption of the amendment, if possible.
and he will have the support of the ex
tremists, but it is understood a number
of Senators who are classed with the radi
cals will not go as far as this. If the
amendment should be adopted and should
remain in the hill it would mean an cxtra
session, as Mr. Cleveland would, it is said,
veto the bill. The fate of the Gorman
amendments for certilcates of indebted
ness and prohibiting secret bond sales Is
uncertain. It may be that the authoriza
tion of certificates will carry, and the
other amendment, which is construed by
some as implying a criticism of the recent
acts of the administration, may fail. But
if the administration takes as strong
ground against these amendments as soine
of its representatives have Indicated, both
amendments are likely to be stricken from
the bill bef6re it is sent to him fur ap
Appropriation Bills Not to Fall.
While the time seems very short for ac
tion on all the appropriation bills, It may
pretty safely be assumed that none of them
will fall through want of action by Con
gress, and that if any fall at all it will he
through some provision got into it which
would cause a veto. The delay of the ap
propriation bills is not so much a menace
to those measures; but is for the purpose
of rendering it impossible to pass other
bills over which there is a contest. It is al
most a certainty that the pooling bill can
not pass. In fact, no one seems to doubt
that all proposed legislation not in the ap
propriations will die with the expiration of
LmH-l's ON THE RIVER.
What the Light House Board Say of
the Couditiom of Things.
The members of the light house board
consider it unfair for the river men to hold
them responsible for the limited number
of lights on the Potomac river, inasmuch
as that is a matter in the hands of Con
gress and entirely beyond their control.
They say that they are specially interested
in safe navigation, but that it takes an
act of Congress to establish a new light
o- t& replace a light house that may have
veen destroyed. Efforts are now being
made for the establishment of a light
house at Lower Cedar Point, to replace
the one destroyed by tire on Christmas
ight, l1KXh. A hill appropriating $7Th,5u0 for
that purpose has been favorably reported
to both houses of Congress. and will prob
at ly be adopted during the comihg week.
Prompt act.on w.ll be taken for the con
struction of this important aid to the navi
gation of the river, as soon as the neces
sary authority shall have teen obtained.
Damnjaes iby the Blizznrd.
It Is also unjust, according to the mem
bers of the board, to hold them responsible
for the damage done to light houses in the
river and bay during the recent Ice blizzard.
The light at Maryland Point, abandoned
on account of the encroaching ice, which
reniered its occupancy unsafe, will be re
stabiishtd as soon as it Is possible to re
turn to it. At last accounts ice had gorged
around it to the neight, of fourteen feet, and
it was entirely inaccessible.
The situation at Smith's Point. near the
mouth of the I iver, will be renedied as soon
as it is possible to do anything. The light
ouse at this point was entirely carried
away by the drifting ice fle!ds. This is a
mo~st important light and its absence would
make navigation of those waters extremely
Recognizing this fact, the board has or
dered that the light ship regularly sta
tioneui a- lPush lu~ff, in the Elizabeth river
above Norifolk, be trainsferred to Smith
Point. The ship is rnow undergoing repairs,
but will be ready to proceed to her new
station as soon as navigtation is resumed.
Her place at Bzushi Iluf! is temporarily
supj lied by the. light house tondier Holly,
relebrated as having been utilizedI by Pres
ilent Cleveland in his egpedtions against
the water fowl of Z.rth Carolina.
Protest Agannt a Fence.
A numrher of resider.ts and property hold

ivenue and C street. have joined in a pe
titicn to the Commissioners, protesting
anst the placing of a fence along fCth

a na rrow one, and is very unplleasa it for
persons In carriages or wagons to pass, brit
to putt up a f~:-ee. In add tioni to the traclea

ArchIbald M. Bliss of East Washington
Heights has written to the Commissioners
requesting that lamp posts, with lamps. be
erected from a .point on Pennsylvania
avenue extendei',across the Eastern branch,
where they now terminate, to the corner of
Minnesota avenue. He says that it will
take about four or five lamps to light the
avenue that distance, and from which
point, continuing on the avenue to 28th
.treet, andl on 28thn and 31st streets to the
lowen road he has erected twenty-five
posts and oil lamps.
He also requests that gas lamps be erect
ed on Harrison avenue, from opposite the
German Orphan Asylum, where they now
terminate, to the B~owen road and 31st
street. The gas mains, he says, have been
laid for a long time, and Bowen road and
:st street, being a great thoroughfare,
lading into Washington, there is great
r.cessity for them.
Hie suggests that if there is a scarcity of
-imps and posts, owing to inadequate ap
rariaticns, that they mIght be placed at

Honors for the Dend.
Several suggestions have been made as to
the mode or honoring the memory of the
dead colored leader. The suggestion from
Mrs. M. F. Otey, published in The Star of
!ast evening, that the children In the color
ed schools wear a badge of mourning for
a suitable period, seems to have met with
the approval of many. Today it was decid
0l to close the colored public schools on
Monday, the day of the funeral.
Dr. F. J. Shadd, trustee of the county
schools, in an announcerment sent to The
Star. that the coloreul schools of the county
woull be closed, wrote:
"The death of Frederick Douglass has
deeply affected all of us. The American
peope mourn his loss. When impartial
history shall be written the name of Doug
lass will be piaced among the leaders of
thought an:i action of the world. As his
life and character should be an Inspiration
to every youth of the land it is hoped that
in the near future there will be a Douglass
day in our colored schools, so that the chil
dren can learn of the many brave and he
roic deeds dlone by this champion of the
cause of freedom and equal rights. . As a
tribute of respect to his memory I have
suspended the colored schools of the county
for next Monday."~
Thbe Emancipntion Association.
Jas.W. Poe. president of the Emancipation
Association of the District of Columbia, has
issuedl the following request to the mem
hers and friends of the association: Where
as. God, who doeth all things well, has call
ed from time to' eternity Hon. Frederiek
Douglass. statesman, counselor, dIplomat,
orator and one of the great instrumentali
ties in the emancipation of hIs race; there
fore, I request the superintendents, com
mittees and all otilers and friends of the
association to meet at Israel Baptist
Church, 11th street between F and G
streets northeast. Sunday, at 3 p.m.. to
pess suiltable resolutions of respect In hon
or of our great dead, and to fix a date for
mmorial services by the association."'
str. Hillyer's Sugn:estionls.
Mr. Andrew F. Hillyer says in a commu
niation to The Star:
The life of Mr. Douglass is certainly an
exemplllifiation of the possibilities of our
free American institutions. In no other
country in the world would it have been
possible for a man to have come up from
the low depths from which he came, at
tain the height which he attained, and
accomplish what he accormplished. But
le himself was created great, in a country
of great opportunities. He took advantage
of his opportunities and was the central
figure in a movement that revolutionized
the sentiment of his country In regard to
his race, a movement which resulted in
their ermancipation, their enfranchisement,
their right to hold office and their recogni
tion as citizens throughout this entire
country. Who ins history has accomplish
ed more for humanity, for his country and
for his own peoples? In view of his emi
nent services I take the liberty to suggest,
In order to secure concerted action, that
all persons who appreciate moral worth
and greatness should adopt some emblem
of mourning for Mr. Douglass, just as was
done when Grant and Lincoln died. Es
pecially should thIs be done by that class
of American citizens whom he did so much
to make free.
1. Let us drape our dwellings, our church
es. our public halls and schools in mourn
2. Let us wear upon our persons for
thirty days some badge of mourning.
:. Let us adopt the suggestIon of Mrs.
Mary F. Otey, as published in The Star, to
have our children wear a badge of mourn
ing for this great man.
4. Let us, on emancipation day, hold a
great memorial service to his memory.
No Distinctioni on Account of Color.
It has been stated that the remains of
the late Mrs. Douglass will be removed
frmn Graceland cemetery, hero, to the Mt.
Hope cemetery at Rochester, there to be
bried beside Mr. Douglass, because col
ored burials have been prohibited in Grace
land cemetery. The authorities of Grace
land cemetery explain that all burials,
either white or colored, were pi-ohibited in
Graceland cemetery by the act of Congress
approved August 3, 18194, and that no dis
tinction has been, or could be, made on ac
count of color.

Searoey Showed the Court How a

Counsel for Defense Rebuked by
SEVERAL SHARP PASSAGES
STAFFORD COURT HOUSE, Va., Febru
ary 23.-Searcey, the confederate of Mor
gan in the Aquia creek train robbery on
Oetober 12, resumed the stand this morning
looking fresh and chipper. Mr. White
handed him up a forty-five-caliber Colt's
revolver, and asked him if he knew it. He
said he did, that it was Charlie Morgan's,
a pistol that he used at the robbery.
Then Searcey was turned over to Lawyer
Shay for cross-examination. Mr. Shay's
examination was exhaustive, and traced
the whole course of Searcey's life. Searcey's
replies were terse and pointed. After tell
ing of his travels in this country, Central
and South America. Searcey got to the
time of the train robbery. His story dif
fered only in minor details from what had
already been narrated by the other wit
nesses, until he came to describe the man
ner in which their masks were put on, when
Mr. Shay dramatically whipped out of his
pocket a large red bandanna handkerchief
and asked Searcey to put it on in the man
ner the masks were worn.
"Are the holes cut?" said Searcey.
"No," replied Gen. Shay.
"Please cut them," said Searcey.
"I am not engaged in that business," said
Mr. Shay. "You cut them."
Some one produced a pair of scissors and
Searcey cut the holes in the handkerchief.
which he then put on in the manner in
which he said they were 'worn the night
of the robbery. Then Morgan's hat was
produced and Searcey was requested to
put that on, and there he stood, the ob
served of all observers, an ideal train rob
Another sensation of the day was when
Prosecutor White insisted that Searcey be
allowed to answer a question in his owft
way, and the court so ruled.
Senator Little, for the defense, sprang to
his feet at the bar and charged the judge
with assisting the prosecution. He was
sharply reprimanded by the judge, and he
retorted that all the people thought the
judge was assisting.
Judge Ashton again sternly called coun
sel to order.
Mr. Shay's cross-examination was long,
skillful and exhaustive, but failed to shake
Searcey's testimony. There was quite a
laugh when Mr. Shay asked Searcey at one
time in regard to his leaving some place
whether Judge Lynch was after him, and
Searcey quickly answered, '&He was not,
and if he was he did not catch me." -
At the close of the cross-examination
Searcey was ordered to stand aside and the

PLAYING EXPERT CHESS
Several Tournaments at the Local Club
A Crack Player Attends to Twenty
and Unfinished Games.
The rooms of the Washington Chess,
Checkers and Whist Club on 12th street
between F and G streets were crowded
last evening with an enthusiastic crowd
of chess lovers and chess experts. The
occasion was the birthday tourney held in
honor of the father of his country, who,
If he wasn't a chess player, doubtless
would have been converted into one if he
could have attended the meetings yester
day afternoon and evening. The play be
gan in the early afternoon and was con
tinued with little or no interruption until
midnight. The first event of the day was
a pyramid tourney in two classes. Prize%
were offered in each, that for the major
tourney being a copy of Freeborough's
"Chess Openings," and that for the minor
tourney being a copy of Steinitz's "Chess
Openings." The first round in the major
tourney was completed, with the following
result: Wright won from Key, DeConin
from Gwyer, Tibbetts from Cooke, Tharp
from O'Farrell, Hill from Davidson, Von
Stant from Knight, Hanna from Smith,
Hawkins from Briggs, Wieman from
Torsch, and Uhthoff from Oppenheimer.
The second round was begun, but could
not be completed. As far as it was played
it resulted &s follows: Tharp won from
Von Stant, Wright drew to Tibbetts, Hill
drew to Hawkins, and the game between
Hanna and DeConin was In progress when
the tourney was temporarily postponed to
make room for the simultaneous play,
which was scheduled to begin at 8 o'clock.
The concluding games of the tourney will
be played off some night next week, prob
The Minor Tourney.
The minor tourney began at the same
time as the major. The first round resulted
as follows: Hodges won, from Alexander,
Bond won fram Dexter, Neagle won from
McCleary, Ruebsan won from Tupper, At
well drew to Flyx n; Capt. Key was a bye.
In the second round Hodges won from
Flynn, Atwell from Reubsan, Neagle from
Capt. Key. This round was unfinished when
the floor was cleared at 8 o'clock for the
simultaneous play. There was another
tourney for the evening, but owing to the
large ntimber of er tries and the length of
the simultaneous play it could not take
place. This was the problem solving tour
nament, quite a novelty in the city. A
large number of envelopes had been pre
pared, each contair.ing a printed set of five
chess problems, which were to be solved n
a given time. To the winner most cor
rectly solving the problems is to be given a
handsome scarf pin. Only the Baltimore
players were given their problems last
night. These gentlemen, four in number,
were obliged to leave early in order to catch
their train, and they worked out their prob
lems before they left. They were Messrs.
Wieman, Tosch, Uhthoff and Oppenheimer.
As they came late they were scheduled
against each other in the major tourney.
At 8 o'clock the tables were arranged in
an oval in the upper part of the great
room, and twenty players, acknowledged
by all present to be the pick of the W ash
ington chess talent, took their seats to
compete against Prof. Adolph Albin, the
champion of Boston, in simultaneous play.
This score of antagonists was said to be
the best collection of local players who
ever entered in a simultaneous tourney In
this city. They were Messrs. Hanna.
Tharp. Briggs, Davidson, Sonnenschmidt,
Harvey, Lambden, SchifTman. Smitn
Jaquette, Hawkins, Hodges, Wright, Tib
betts, O'Farrell, Gwyer, Alexander, Geddis,
Bermann and Cooley. At 101 o'clock an in
ttrmission of ten minutes was had, and
play was then resumed and continued until
nearly midnight. Prof. Albin won twehe
of the twenty games, drew five, and lost
to Wright, Harvey and Schiffman.
While the chess games and tourneys
were going on the members of the checker
section of the club were engaged at an in
formal set of games in the rear of the
room. Mr. D. Barrott, champion of Mary
land, was pitted against several of the
local players. Mr. Alexander Mci-ardy had
the best luck against the Baltimore expert.
winning two, losing one and drawing one.
It is expected that the concluding games
in the minor chess tourney now running in
the club will be played early next week.
The first prize in this tourney lies between
Messrs. Pattison and Mundell. Mr. Mun
dell has completed his play of twenty-two
games, winning sixtcen and losing six.
Mr. Pattison, having won fifteen and lost
four, has but three more games to play, of
which he must win two to win the chain
Preparations are* being made for the
semi-annual tournament for the Libbey
cup, which is to begin on the second Moon
Iday' in March, and will last upwards of
Ithree months. The cup is now held by
Mr. Wright, who, having held it for two
ecjisecuive tourneys, will win it for his
Irdividual property If he should lead the
coming tournament. There will be a meet
ing of the executive committ'6 of the
club tonight, consisting of Messrs. McFar
lord, Martin and Pattison, to consider the
question of a revision of the rules to gov
ern this tourney. It is likely that there
will be several changes in the regulations.
This tournament is open to all ama
teur chess players of the District, and is
rot confined to the membership of the
Washington C. C. and W. Club, although
held under the auspices and in the rooms
of that organization. There is much more
interes9t in chess this winter than last sea
son, as the large attendance at the tour
r.ament yesterday and last night attested;
so it is expected that the entries this year
for the Libbey cup will be much more nu
merous than usual. They will be received
up to and including Monday. the 4th of
March. In add:.tion to the Libbey cup. oth
er prizes will be given equal in value to
the entrance fees, and in number to one
third of the entries.
There were several well-known .chess ex
perts present last night from outside the
club. Professor Wiley, one of the leading
chess players of the Cosmos Club. acted as
adjudicator on unfinished games of the
first round. Among other guests of the
evening were Admiral Crosby and Maj.
Tupper, also of the Cosmos Club.
Oni the Verge of a Precipice.
VANCOUVER, B. C., February 23.-The
Canadian Pacific line has been blocked by
snow slides on the Selkirk's branch and
trains are now running for the first time
pince Tuesday. When passing through the
snow shed a slide struck the train, throw
ing the cars against a bank of frozen
snow, which alone prevented their fall
over a precipice. The second-class Pull
man and day coach were badly smashed,
but no passengers were seriously injured.

GENERAL MARKET REPORS
Special Dispatch to The 1Dvening Star.
NEW YORK, February 23.-The small
volume of business this morniuig was to
tally Inadequate to a. continuation of the
advance reflected in Initial figures. Prices
were well sustained, however, the Irregu
larity of the final hour being entirely due
to the evening-up process cf the trading
element. The prospects of action being
taken on the pooling bill during the after
noon had a tendency to hold prices steady
In the group most interested in the fate of
this measure. The influence for good ex
erted by the bill In question Is likely to ex
pire with the day, as the best information
obtainable indicates clearly that there will
be several of the necessary affirmative
votes lacking in the final struggle.
The appropriation bills and their mon
opoly of time are the only really serious ob
stacle in the way of the pooling bill's pas
sage. Its object Is a good one, and it would
undoubtedly be fittingly indorsed were con
ditions mc re favorable. The street has re
lied upon the success of this effort to re
store values on the basis of. intrinsic merit,
and the manner. in which it will give ex
pression to the disappointment which now
seems inevitable can only be surmised.
The market for foreign exchange has at
tracted unusual attention during the week
as the result of the new loan's. influence
on rates. During the first half of the weetk
the volume of business was small and
rates firm, bcnkers showing no dispositian
to trade until the result of the syndicate's
bond offering could be approximated.
About the middle of the week liberal of
ferings of bills by a house supposed to be
operating for the syndicate and moderate
buyirg of stocks and bonds for European
account were immediately reflected in re
duced rates, averaging about 1-4 per cent.
The tone of the market at the close of the
week was strong, and the syndicate's obli
gation to preserve the treasury's supply of
gold intact may yet curtail the enormous
profits and remove them beyond the limits
of justifiable criticism.
The official figures relative to the actual
amount of bonds subscribed for In this
country, are 2(K,000,000. The notices of al
lotment will probably be mailed this after
noon, and the bonds themselves will follow
with as mdch haste as possible.
The adjournment of Congress will figure
prominently as an incentive to specula
tion during the coming week, and unless
some unexpected complications arise the
street predicts that values will increase as
the number of days Intervening between
the time of adjournment decrease.
The bank statement reflects a loss of
$4.01,(il0 4n lawful imoney, all in specie.
This loss is partly offset by the liberal re
ceipts of legal tenders from interior points.
The loss of specie to the subtreasury on
account of the bond franchise does not ap
pear fully in this week's statement, as the
banks making the deposits hold the treas
ury's receipts for the coin, and will carry
them as specie until the bonds are de
