The llver mass meeting at Cxpcr Union toniglit filled the large auditorium and all the available btanding rtxm was occupied. I The audience was enthusiastic and up- plaurled loudly every lime an opportunity c.rfi-rcil itself. Senator Denjamia F. Till man, or South Carolina, occupied u prom inent place on the platform and was cheered lustily when lie entered the audi, turium a few minutes before 8 o'clock. After Senator Bixliy had made a few remarks, in which hefcnid that the country needed free nihcr and v,an going to bitve it, lion. Alexander Deltnar J IntPn ducrJaa a recognized iiulhtrity the world over on ILc money question. He made a lengthy opeech, in which be said that the capltnllHtx were not content with the high rates of Interest, but they wanted to bind the people to pqy in gold, or which they had a monopoly. OOLU WOULDN'T DO. The country needed u medium of ex change. Gold would not do because it would now out ot the country. Silier and greenbacks would do btcause they would slay here. Fifty per cent of the business of the country, the speaker 9 lid, Is done by note, proving that there is not sufficient mono, counting in- both gold and 8ll.er, for the business of the countr. "This natun. ir it is to remain inne pemlent. mubt devise and ni ilntoln its own system of mone." said MrDelmnr. "and l" sav, with the mrretary commissions of 1876 and 1876. that nil attempts to ren tier meney International are doomed to disastrous failure." It ttok to", cral minutes for the vastcrow d in the audiurium to get through elieeriiig when Benatir Tillman was introiiuted. Senator Tillman begin b pajing hs respects to the newipaiiers. He said that the u'gtit would gie an opportunity to show the members of the audience tl-it the newspapers were unconscionable liars. The owners of the newspapers, he said, were 'iircstitules of journalism, and rot a paper 111 -New York wuuid dare print h.s speech in full. The speaker said that, al though he had been much talked about and lied about, lie had written his name on a page of South Carolina history in such a wa tint It would remain there alwj. beady: to luave it. Coming to the money que.tlon, the Senator said "If the Chicago convention does not give us licmocraty and return Jo the faith of Washington anu aeiierson 1 will haie nothing to do with it otter wards. ' ... "The money question Is up, and has got to Le'settled It Is es Important as wis the slavery question, and it enough of ou can get together to revc tie verdict of the two millionaire conventions you will deserve the thanks of the whole countr.' Senator Tillman referred to the molded men of the East as thimble riggers and repeated his assertion that Cleveland wis a tool of Wall Street. The Senator called on all those w ho had handled gold within a ear to hold up their bauds. Half a dozen hands were raised. Then he called on Uiosc who had not handled gold con to raise their hands Possibly a thou sand bands went up. "1 hen where has the geld gone?" asked Senator Tillman. "You lui'.ejCt handled It. although $410,000,001) or the S5E0. OoO.OOO in government bonds were sold on Manhattan Island. The Senate r ivdd that If he were on the Senate cemmittee investigating the recent bond sale he would ask President Cleveland whv he made tie private cintract to fell bonds at 1 04 1-2 rcr cent when tney were selling on the public market at 117. UNEMPLOYED LABOR. The Senator then talked about uncm ploed labor, which, he said, was a lever by which those etnpIoed were ground down to low wages. "You see on joir own street car lines," he continued, "cars labeled U. S. Mall. Those cars dou't carry any mail. They are on there so the cor lines can claim the protection of United States troops in case of a strike." ScnatorTllIinati charade rized John Sher man of Ohio as the high priest of Mammon and the Joint owner with Ha una of William MoKi-iley. "AH of ou w(io are going to ote for gold hold, up 0ur hands," concluded tbe Senator. Five hands wore held up. "All who are going to vote for"stlvcr regardless of party, hold up Our h ind." Over hair the audience raised their hands. Thespeakersaid. as he sat down- "America for Americans and to hell with England and. an other countries."

"Please accept my warjucst thanks for the cop or our most excellent report for 1805.

Tills compliment Is exceedingly gratify ing to the health official-, coming as it docs from the sanitary office of one of tbe most important snnitar) districts in Eng land.

Mr. Buxton has completely recovered. Mrs. Buxton has only a slight wound which is rapidly healing. Both would have been allowed to return to their home two weeks ago but for the condition of their daugh ter, Maud. .. Only within the past few das has she been able to Le out-of bed. She is npldly Improving, and her wounds healing. Owing to her nervous condition It lias been thought lCst that her parents remain with her. She Is fast recovering her powersot speech, but articulates very slowlj and with some difficulty. Home words she is unable to pronounce, anil In a measure like a child she is learning to talk again. Her right side which was pambzed as a result of one of the blows Inflicted upon her head is gaining strength, and she is able to use her una to some extent. The physicians think that in a Miorttime she will regain her speech. It was neces sary to treat the wounds to shave the heats or both Mrs Buxton and Miss Maud, and botli are compelled to wear bandage caps. Miss Maud's injuries are dressed daily, und as soon as this Is unnecessary she will lie discharged. She will probably leave the hospital in nl,out a week. No further com plications arc anticipated, and her mental powers willnot be affected. ST. PATRICK'S SUNDAY SCHOOL.

Secretary-Treasurer J. W. Hayes or the General Assembly or the order of Knights of Labor Is very confident of winning Its fight against the coiupuny and so ex pressed himself In an Interview with The Times. He said that organized I ibor de feated the company before and can do It again. i THE 8TJRIKE OF 1894. The pres;pt complications are traceable indirectly to the tie-up of tie Metro politan Hues on December 14. 1894,. which resulted in the humiliation or President Phillips, and the completa granting of the demands ot the'emplOes. s Just about the, time of the strike the company was ncgcittatlng for ruuds to make certain extensions aud better equip ment, the irtlm ninalng up Into the hun. dreds ot thousands of cTolars. It was al was understood thatthe company wa3 well equipped flnanci-iHy. and tbattfe negotia tions shoulduft have Interfered Willi the wags of tho men. Wleu. thoreforei the men heard that It was iulended tol cut down their wages there was Indication spread from one end of the road tu the otber.Jn which they had the smpaihetic assistance 'of all lines In Washington. Although the einplojes of the Metro politan line we're not. organized at that It tnoli thtin only the nlglit or the Kith or lleoemlier to come to the conclusion to Si out. This was put into cfrect at a few minutes past i o'clock p. m., ou Thurs day, when the first car, due opposite the Ebbitt House, stopped, and tbe driver and conductor threw up their Jobs. The can cnnUnued to arrive and added to the blockade until the whole street was blockaded. Citizens githereJ In great crowds, and the general sentiment was on thcsldeof the strikers. Tim cause of this tie up was the re duction by the company of the wogjs of the men 17 1-2 per cent from the already not too great pay. TIE-UP WAS COMPLETE. President Phillips and one of his subor dinates came ou the scene but no one as sistej him to move the cars. At 8 o'clock there wasn't a car on the road which bad not been piled up on F street aud on Fourteenth. Later in the nlglit President riiillips gave in and according to the accounts given ot It at the time by the men who Interviewed President Phillips he raised his hand to Heaven in declaration of peace with the emploes. This was distrusted, they believing that some time he would try and be revenged. Therefore ou the following Sunday the men met at Typographical Temple and organ ized their first union. Mr. Sturgess was the first president and was imat instru mental in organizing this resistance to the company's plans. He was elected for a car but at fie enj ot tliruc months the men became dissatisfied and elected the present president, Lawrence, wli lias been chosen three times In succession. The men now think It strange that Mr. Sturgess is one of the most favored men on the line b President Phillips. The uext trouble, all of which bears on the present disagreement, was with the men of the Ninth street line when Its power was changed to electricity. The men began very early to see that it was proposed to substitute new njen wherever possible for the old and'tried servants of the company. Cases where non union men had been put on evidently with the Inten tion of replacing the old men were recalled to Mr. Phillips' attention. There was a long agitation. The men succeeded and as a result joined the Street Railway Union, more than ninety per cent of them being now members. TUE PRESENT TROUBLE. The preserit,t rouble, It is evidnt, will bo charged totlic employes by the company. The men, however, say that their opposi tion to the leglsMtion or the Metropolitan Company in Corijress Is tbe result of Hie continued and persistent warfare of the company on the, union. The chief cause of the opposition of the men was that a new employe harUto be certified to byl two 'merchants and other business men. They were also Infbrwed by the officers that they should ppld. no communication with the members ot the union. Acting from this provocation-It Is admitted that they succeeded in having tbe Connecticut ave nue extensions rjf the line defeated. As stated, the present disposition is to let tho justice of their case win instead ot any resort to the obstructive tactics. They have teenred the co-operation ot the Northeast Citizens' Association, the South Woshjogton Association, and it was further stated that they would ask the assistance, ot the clerks in ail the de partments to help them In the right practi cally by not using tbe Metropolitan lines. They also expect, when the public is put In possession ot all the facts, tbat It will aid in tbe fight. The question of strike was broached on the Ninth street line yesterday, and it was stated tbat tbe men 'were ready to go ont, but that they were advised that such a proceeding would not be necessary In view of the determination to use first the methods above described.

WHY THE G. A. R. OBJECTS Commander McElroy Drawn a Lino Between Davis and the Confederate - GeuoralM Southern Men Sorry tho Issue Uau "Been Pulsed, uud Say It Is Misunderstood. If CominanderMcEIroy, of the Department or tbe .Potomac, is tbe mouthpiece, the pmpieed visit of the High School Cadets Ko Richmond Is opposed Dy the Grand Army of the Republic Tuefeeitug over the matter seems to otr somewhat intense, on both sides, and may eventually lead to the trip being abandoned, ut least as High School Cadets. The resolutions adopted by Jluruslde Post, No. 8, are generally upproved by iHc veterans, while the Southerners and the Confederate veterans tbink they were inopportune. Commander McElroy, when seen by a Times reporter, was decidedly emphatic in his statements concerning the cadets' visit. ' "Wo feel decidedly," he said,"that nny parUdpatlon by any class of young men. and especially those rroui the North, In these ceremonies is entirely wrosg, and that it Is even more so lo the case of Jeff Davis than it would be In testimonials to such men as Lee. Johnson, Stonewall Jackson and others who were fine soldiers and who showed skill and bravery in the war. "Davis was the leader in the cabal which cars berorc the war deliberately tet to work to breed hostility between tbe eec tlons and precipitate a peaceful country into a bloody war. COMMANDER M'ELROX'8 VIEWS. "This was solely for the gratification of their Individual ambitions. The Southern people really were strongly aMached to the Union, but by the machinations or such men d Ilivia irnpa l,r.ntrtlt. itltn I OsfllltV 11 i i, rir n..l. ..n,i his ronferewi bad I '" ".. . , ., ,i.i , .1.1 ,.i.i.i. brought about the condition of things which led to the war, Lee, Jackson and otters relt that they had to tide wiin tncir own people, and they had that excuse, whatever It ma be worth, that they bad to go with their States. Consequently they are less blaiuablc than the men who deliberately plotted and Intrigued to bring the rebcll.on about, and any honor paid Jeff Davis is a testimonial simpl lo guilty, unscrupulous ambitions, unrelieved by a single oncofthc acts or soldiership which made the rebel commanders in the field eminent. "We all admit frankly that they fought well for a bad cause.- "We feel that the effect upon the young mind nf participation In such a ceremony would bo very pernicious. Those who take, part cannot escape something of the feeling that altogether It was more praiseworthy and honorable to have Intrigued and plotted to plunge a peaceful country Into war than to have fought on the Union side to save the country from there horrors. "Impressions received from such affairs as these b boy on the verge of manhoo-l arc likely to produce a lasting mental color ing which may have the most unfortun ite results." WHAT MR. DREW THINKS. Commander It. Brd Lewis, of the Con federate Camp in this city, could not be found last evening, but John W. Drew. druggist, at Connecticut avenue and L street northwest, a prominent lucmlxr of the camp, and a member of the committee which invitca inecaactsio weiimonu.saia that he-thought it fcollsli to raise cbJc6:ioos to the visit of the cadets to Richmond at this time. It Is the nnuu.il reunion of the Confederate camps, and it so happens that the lujing of the comer-stone of the monu ment to Davis' memory takes place at this time. Mr. Drew s-vid the cadets woukl be the guests of the city of Richmond and he stw no reason why any objection should be raised a ncernlng the visit. It looked to him like making a mountain ut or .. molehill. A call at the rooms of the Confederate Post on F street, opposite the Ebbitt House, failed to elicit any expressions from the several members of the camp there.

Little One Wuh Left, with a Colored Woman by Ita Young aud Widowed Mother. The death, a few days ago, of an infant white child has brought to notice acleverly conducted Investigation by Mr. S. ri. l'ark man, of the Hoard of Children's Guardians, which has developed uu interesting story. The attention of tbe board was first directed to the case when :i,colored wjinan named Maggie Tolson, complained that a strange white woman had left with herao Infant, but had failed to make the promised provision for the child. Tbe inotli-r had said its name was Edward Mason. Mr. Parkman began an inquiry and learned that April 7 last a middle aged man, accompanied by two young women, had engaged two furnished roo ns tt a private house in G street north-vest nnd had given the name -of Ell Jimjj, of Marshall, Va. The women, ho said, were his daughters, 'Miss May Jame.i, jged twenty, and Mrs. Annie M. Mason, only sevt uleen. The man confided to bis landlord that bis daughter's husband was dead, reiving committed sulcUle lu March, the third day after his marriage. All went well until tbe lGth of April, wheu there was a toy baby in the bous, and two weeks thereafter Mr. Jnrrvs asked tbe doctor to tell him of someone who would take care of the child, bcc-iuse the mother was too weak to look after It. Mr. James said they would tuke It nllh them when they went track to the country. Mrs. Tolsou was secured. The next morning Mr. Eli James, Miss May James, Mrs. Mnsou disappeared. One feature uf tbe work of the Uoard of Children's Guardians is that it has hundreds of correspondents in the states contigjous to Washington. After care fully considering the case. Mr. Parkman communicated with their agent at Mar shall, trillrg him the facts lu the case, and asking for Information ot anjone named James, or answering the description uf the parties. The a gent soon answered the letter, stat ing that there was a farmer named Uride well. who had two daughters, one ot whom had married recently, and ner hus band bad shot himself on tbe third day uf his marriage. They bad been absent from their home for several weeks, but bad recently returned. So confident was Mr. Parkman, that the parties mentioned by his inrnrmint were the proper iiersons that he addressed .i communication to Bridewell accusing him or the affair. Bridewell Immediately responded, acknowledging he was the party, and said he had given an assumed name. They had never Intended to deeert the child, he said, but he was a poor maa and it was hard for him to get the money together. The letter was a most pathetic appeal to take care ot the child. Later came another epistle, written In red ink. and headed at Marshall, Va. It was fro.-i the child's mother, and hers was. Indeed, a touching plea. The two letters did not agree, however, the father stated that his daughter was out of work and the girl saying that she had Work in Wash ington, which took her traveling with a lady as maid, and f hatshe intended to pro vide for the little one. Tbe father Y advised to take the child but did not do so. Ue, howeverT sent some rconcy and the Board of Children's Guardians locked after It until the 2-l of this month, when It died and was buried in Potter's field. DECORATING THE HALLS.

Jndgv Kimball Meukx Hix .Mind ou the Cure ot Illegitimate Children. Judge Kimball made some caustic re marks jesterday concerning the transfer of Illegitimate children to the charge of the Board of Children's Guardians. Agant Parkman presented a petition for the transfer of thelnfantof AllleJones.a voung colored woman. It was a specimen case. The girl ac knowledged that she was not married. She also said this was her second child. Judg Kimball characterized the case as outrageous, and said: "There should be a law a very stringent one to be applied in cases of this kind. The fathers aud mothers of these children should be criminally prosecuted." The baby was turned over to AgcntPark man. W. L. I. FIELD DAT. Committee Will Anuouiico tho Offi cial Program Very boon.
