The same pricesthouldprevail all through and 1 think we are doing quite enough when wc arc jumping from 25 to 50 cents. If we in an waj increase pce on special days we can not gain much, and itgnes the public a bad impression. 1 am thoroughlj opposed to the policy." An official of the elnb, who lnd favored the mme. ?aid: "Our idea is merely to give per son" an opportunity to secure their seats early for the tn o occa-.ons named. On the opening Uv and on the Fourth of July there are very big crowds, and we thmk that hundreds of ppople will willingly pay an extra 25 cents to secure a good eat.

AN EXCITING DIALOGUE BETWEEN THEM f SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH, Boston, April 10. Judge Carpenter, of the United States Court Bench, called Gen eral Butler a liar to-day in a heated argu ment over legal matters connected with the famous Johnson case, upon which General Butler has staked his reputation. He did not use the word "liar," but everybody knew what he meant, and there was a de cided sensation in the crowded court room over that and the dramatic scene that fol lowed. The case against Mrs. Johnson, who was convicted of perjury in attempting to obtain a pension, came up on General Butler's motion for a new trial. The General has stated that be did not get a fair hearing be fore tbe present Court and the feeling be tween the Court and counsel has not been marked by unnecessary friendliness. There were several brushes in to-day's proceedings. Judze Carpenter, in reiusing to grant General Butler's motion for a new trial, said: "The second objection was to the with holding or 'holding un'ofa ruling upon the validity of the marriage of defendant to Stevens under the laws of Vermont, until the charge was delivered to the jury. This was not true. It never was true, and it was always known not to be true ever since the trial. Butler Stung to Madness. "The question was fully argued by the counsel at the time.and the Court stated fully what he should rule. Thej stitenicnt, therefore, being false, and known to he false by the counsel now before the court, it con stituted no grounds lor a new trial." This brought General Butler to bis feet, and, trembling with excitement and raze, he exclaimed: "As to the allegation that the, claims in tbe motion aie false, I reassert them to be true, and that they can be proved by the records of die court." Judge Carpenter, with firmness and very pointedly, replied: "you have said so once, and you knew it to be false." General Butler turned pale, compressed his lips to suppress the retort that was ready, and after a moment of painful silence, he took: 'up another phase of the case and the following spicy debate followed: General Butler I propose to have a writ of error from the Circuit Court as soon as the Court will settle the exceptions. Asain Called a Li.ir. The Court There have been no exceptions presented up to this present moment. General Butler That is as true as some thing else I have heard. The exception is now in your bands. The Court You have not presented them to me at any time, and you have not done so now. General Butler laughed and pointed to tbe clerk, who held a document in his hand, and said: "Give me that till I hand it to His Honor." The Court (to the Clerk) Keep that, Mr. Clerk; it will not be used for any perform ance. General Butler Will Your Honor accept them? There is the bill of exceptions pre sented, read to Your Honor. Your Honor knows them," evade them if you like. I offer them. Turning to the people in the court, he made this appeal to them: "I wish you to II. n rS LJlf J rsss "OH, !F MOTHER WERE ONLY ALIVE!"
