enerally Observed in This City by Orthodox
The Heb:c-w Feusa of the Fu?-?>ves?,
hich began Wednesday, is being gen?
erally observed by orthodox Hebrews in
this city. . , ,
The Passover is the spring festival ot
he Jewish religion and is coni'memora
ive to the departure of the Li.aelites
rom Egypt. Us significance is mainly
that of "freedom. In a religious sense it
emblematical of the freedom of the
mind being released from tbe thraldom
A.cording to the .1-1 el new calendar
the Passover falls on the 1-Hh day of
the month of XL-san- at eve. In leality
th'e observance: is domnvanded by the
lath day. but is begun on the evening
of the Hth day of Nissan to commemo?
rate the exceptional favor " es lowed
upon the Israelites at the time when the
(Irs-horn was .-lain, throughout Egypt.
Th.e festival is essentially ...no of great
I joy. I?uf in' no res.peet.is it u demonstra?
tive one-, for Israel never forgets its
sufferings just previous to its emtinei
patioii. The festival lasts seven days
during which tbose who observe it
strictly allow no leaven in. the house.
The substitute for the bread is the
matzo. an unleavened cake. The first
and seventh days are observed as more
?acred than the otHera.
It has been tin oiil established custom
on the first night fur the heads of fam?
ilies to recite an account of the Extadms
and the special customs relating to this
festival. This recitcj which is exceed?
ingly solemn is .usually followed by a
feast and the chanting of psalms. The
object of this is especially to keep the
younger generation informed! ais to the
history of their ancestors and to im?
press uiKin them the importance of so
regulating ti-.eir lives that they may

Sharp Talk on the Sundry CUvlJt Bill
WASHINGTON, April 7.?Sbime sharp
war talk wai# indulged in, by the Sen?
ate today. Wbm the consideration of
the sundry civil appropriation bill was
resumed, the question pending was the
amendment <>f Mr. 'Pettiue, of Alabama,
providing foil' such improverrumit of the
harbor at Mobile as would ?nable war
vessels to obtain <a.ul and other supplies
thete. Mr. AWisbn, of Iowa, in charge
of the bill, made a point of order against
the amendment. This oailled out a bit?
ter sfpeeeh by Bin Morgan, of Alabama,
who charged the uppropriation commit?
tee with disoriniitnution. against the
proper me.isu.ies and threatened to as?
sist in dissolving the committee.
"As for the threat implied by the
Senat?!: frOm Alabama," interrupted
Mr, Al'lisonv hotly, "if I know myself 1
do not crave the work that is now im?
posed' upon nae by the Senate. If the
Senate wumits to dissolve the committee
it may do so without delay."
.Mir. Morgan said that alread'y we
heard of a threat t'oal combine that is to
control the price of coal to lie i-upptfed
to the government at Soutbe-ian ports.
He ih?peid that the report was not tme.
but he reulized. he said, the oppMrUini
ty f?r euch a treasonable spoliation of
the Rovern/meht. He poiintKd erat some
of tike advantages of opening the coal
fields of the South by the improvement
sugitesle-d in 'the pending amendment.
The sovernmi. tit would-thUL* lie enabled
to obtain its ctoui in any quantities tt
tea-enable rates neur the theatre of ae
tion in. case of hostilities. "I do not
know. Mr. President, whether war is
conning or not." said he. "I have never
myself done anything that might in?
volve thii- . nunlry in war, J?ut it seems
to me that the sworn testimony now
before the Senate is sufficiently- strong
to compel us to stl ike iin defense of the
honor and dignity of the conantry vnj in
memory of our dead' seamen shrouded
ire til- mud' of tHavuna harbor. 1 am
willing tO vote flar a declaration that
may involve us im' h'oU-tinties because 1
btl'.eve that we have a just cause.'"
Mr. M>^ gan was of tine opinion that if
a iiait'lroad compuny had brotight the
amendment into the Senate it would
have .passed without a murmur of dis?
sent from the committee and he did not
thit.ik that, in the present cironim
stances. there t hi tild lie the slightest
hesitation tS* pass it. because, alth'cugh
it had not .teeeived the approval of any
committee, it had received the sanction
?if the secretary of war. "I am willing."
said he. "to do anything that will sur
eor the limited States .navy and Ma-ike
dowini the monopoly that seeks to prey
upan -this government."
Mr. tAfiWon had a telegram .tend from
Seiretairy AUger. saying that while he
was willing that the improvement
sheu'ld be made the money to lie ex?
pended witihiim the discretion of the sec?
retary of war. he thought the outer bar
should! lie heft for the present t o as to
Pievimit the too ready ingress of ft ,r
elgre hostl'le. ships. It is better not."
the seclaetary's dispatch read, "to open
?Miy deHHp iharbon^ that would admit
wrtis.hi.ps. It would make simpl'y one
more place to guard;"
On this telegram the chair over-niihrd
Mr. Allison's potnt of older and sub?
mitted the otacstii m to the Senate why
the ami. n.dmenu should not i>o consider?
An aye and no vote was taken on this
propositiom and resulted in the negative
19-33. The vote had the effect of ruling
the amendment out of order.
