" THE YOUNG MEN WIN. A special meeting of the cen tral republican committee was held on "Wednesday evening, Mr A. M. Clapp made an address which was enthusiastically ap plauded. The two factions in the central committee were apparent from the opening of the meeting. The ""War Horses," as they style ihemselves, were defeated by the young men's party. The resolu tions of the "war horses" were all cut and dried, but were defeated by the young men.. Perry Carson was on the war path without avail. Mr. Carson is now anxious to support the young men's party. The resolution offered by Mr. Holmes arraigning Senators Cas son, Sherman, Judge Carter, and others for their condemuation and opposition to suffrage received a strong support by the central com mittee. There were some who were affraid to advocate the reso lution. The speeches of Messrs. Holmes and others in their de nunciation of these senators were logical and eloquent. The fact is that Casson, Sherman, and others are opposed to suffrage in any form, they are wrong. We favor restricted suffrage and believe that Congress will give it to us if the right men advocate it. Laws, who was just irom ine uernocratic House, was called for by Careon to reply to the Bee, and the speech of Mr. Chase, but the young men hissed him and compelled him to take his seat. Mr. Randall Bowie, one of the shrewdest district poli ticians, made the point when Mr. Chase offered a resolution desig nating the 7th of April for the elec tion of delegates to the district convention, that as he was the au thor of the resolution he should be one of the members of the com mittee. The Chairman Mr. Clapp intended to ignore the gentleman on account of the young men's op position to (him) Clapp, but Messrs Bowie, Holmes and others made the demand that the yonug men should be reeognized, hence Mr. Clapp was constrained to ap point Mr. Chase. df) SENATOR OMAR XX CONGER THE GREAT WESTERN SENATOR. Hon. Omar D. Conger, of Port Huron, Mich., was born in 1818, at Cooperstown, New York. At the tender age of six years his father, Sev. E. Conger, re moved to Huron county, Ohio. He pur sued his academic studies at Huron insti tute, Milan, Ohio, and graduated in 1843 at Western Reserve College. In the years eighteen hundred and forty-five, forty-six, forty-seven, he was employed in the geological survey and. mineral ex plorations of the Lake Superior copper andiron regions. In eighteen hundred and forty-eight, Mr. Conger engaged in the practice of law at Port Huron, Mich., where he has since resided; was elected judge of Saint Clair county court in 1850, and state senator in the Michigan legisla ture for the biennial terms of 1855, '57, and '59, in the latter year serving as president, pro tempore; was elected a member of the constitutional convention of Michigan in 1866, Was a presidential elector on the Lin coln and Johnson ticket in eighteen hun dred, and was elected to the forty-first, rrecon r -M ,7 forty-fifth, forty-sixth, and forty-seventh Congresses; was elected to the United States Senate, as a republican, to succed Hon. H. P. Baldwin, republican, and took his seat in 1881 . Senator Conger represents one of the most staunchest regublican states in this grand Union, the asylum of all nations. Michigan was one of the first and for most states in the war of the rebellion that responded to the call of President Lincoln, and to-day the grand old loyal state is represented by an old line adher ent of the Union. Senator Conger is a man of ripe experience and one of the bert parlimentarians in the land. In the House of Representatives Sena tor Conger was the peer of the ablest, al ways standing up for the rights of the downtrodden people ef color. After four teen years of active, arduous service in the U. S. House of Representatives, the peo ple of Michigan bestowed upon him the proud and lofty title of U. S. Senator. Mr. Conner is admired all over this coun try for his sterling qualities as a joint legislator and friend to the negro race. Michigan wiil ever remain loyal to .the Union so long as Senator Conger wields the sceptre. He is but one of the few links that remain remindiug us of "the devotees of a Sumner, Stanton, and Lin cold to our race, ne is alive to the best interest of the district, a friend of suffrage the improvement of .the Potomac Flats, and the laboring man's friend. Senator Conger's term of service will expires March 3, 1887. We predict hia trium phant re-election if higher honors do not intervene. A Eree Bridge Petition! A netition for the selection ot Three Sisters as the site of the free bridge, is being extensively here: It is addressed to the Dis trict commitee of the house of Re presentatives and represents that in the opinion of the signers, the site named is the very best one in every respect, both for the Dis trict of Columbia and- Virginia, that could be procured; and peti tions that the increased appropria tions may be made for the free hndge at this pointf A reason, in addition to many already given, which induces many to prefer the location at Three Sisters, to the Aqueduct Bridge is, that in that event the Aqueduct Bridge would be almost valueless to the corpor ation owning it, and it would then be sold for a railroad bridge. THE GREAT FLOOD.' The rushing waters are playing havoc in the "Westf "We deeply sympathize with the people, and call upon the generous public to respond to the call for help. Rev. R: H. Robsnson, formerly pastor of Asbury Church of this city, now the efficient and eloqueut preacher of the West, stationed at Charleston, W.

Dr C B Purvis, chairman ot the committee on janitors, submitted his report to the board of trustees on Tuesday afternoon, and as we stated in our last issue Trustee J H Smith was sustained. Commisioner West, the auditor, had no right to stop Chase's pay. If Mr West thinka that he can bull-doze Messrs Smith and Pur vis, he is mistaken. Hon. Dwight M. tfabin, Chairman of the Republican Committee, is a shrewd political worker. He iB a western man, but he knows lots about the eastern politics and politicians- OUR PORTRAIT GALLERY.'

The meeting last evening of the Lin coln Club, at which a preference for Gen. Logan aB the republican nominee for President was form ally expressed, was attended by about 30 of the prominent colored men of the city. The anniverrary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln is always observed by the clu'b and on previous occasious the at tendance has been 250 persons, in cluding invited guest and leading politicians from all parts of the State. This year no speakers from out of town were announced, and to thiB, probabably, was due the fact that so few were present. Gen. Logan, who had been in vited to be present by president Jeffrey, sent a letter of regret in which he said: "Nothing would dclght me more than to respond to the 'Hero ims of themeu who inaugurated the anti-slavejy movement in this country. They were bold, brave and true; they met persecution and trembled not before it; they drove their bark over a sea of predjudice, and caused to arise above its waves, islands and con tinents of thought, bedecked with a moral grandeur, the influence of which nerved patriots to go for ward, and, with their own strong arms, strike the shackles from the HmbB of men, making this trulv the land of the free and the home of the brave. And sir, in a free land men 8hould be per- mitted to enjoy all the rights they are entitled to before the law. Our people should be brave enough to protect the honor of their country as well as the rigths of their citizens, and unless the colored citizens or our country are permitted to exercise their lawful rights in a proper way with out being driven, intimidated, and mnrdercd, our boasted institutions, in 'this particular will be regard ed as having authorized fruit from the tree of liberty to be spread before them and yet denied to them the right to partake thereof. It is a farce being played at the con clusion of the greatest drama en acted on the world's stage." L'A WHENCE AND LINCOLN. A MISS1SSIPPIAN AND THE D1STIN- GUISED MEN. i The Editor of the Bee: Sir: Hon. William Lawrence was born at Mount Pleasant, Ohio, June 26, 1819. His home is now at Bellefontaine, Ohio. He has held many responsible positions in his State and under the federal government, lie began his pub lic career as a newspaper man, first correspondent and then the editor. Was commissioner of I Logan County in 1842. Prosecut ing attorney in 1845- member of the Ohio legislature in 1846-'47:1 State senator iu 1849-'50, and '54; elected reporter of the supreme court of Ohio in 1851, and was afterwards twice elected judge ot the court of common pleas; was colonel in the Union army of the 84th Ohio volunteers and was ap pointed U. S. judge lor the State of Florida in '63, but declined. He was a member of Congress for ten years sjrving his party and country well, and wu8 one of the acknowledged leaders of his paaty, authority upon all constitutional and law questions which came up while in that body, and was generally consulted by his fellow membsrs in both political parties. He was twice appointed comptroller of the U. S. Treasury, accepting in 1880, ik;v ah position li now holds enjoying the respect ot all as a man of great legal learning, who has a head of his own. He is one of the few men who in the admin istration of his office, has promptly aecomraended the deserving col ored clerk for promotion along side of his white fellcws. While in Congress he favored and voted for the civil rights bill; was then and is now popularly sound upon vital issues of the day. He has ever been upon the side of the toilirg masses of our common country, regardless of previous condition nr national. He knows no sect, no color, no north, no south, but looks ever to the corn man good of a common country. He is a man of a great and strong individuality, who cannot be driven here and there by cliques and party, but will only be guid ed by a policy which honesty sub seives the beet interests of the whole people. He is a man who will hew to the line without fear or favor in the execution of the laws. He is one of the few men who can rally around the soldier element, roll up large majorities in Indiana, New York and sweep Ohio. He is our choice for the Presiden cy in the coming campaign with Ho Robt. Lincoln for the second place. Suffice it to say for Mr. Lincoln that he is alawjer of prominence, the present honorable Secretary of War, and the son of the immortal Abraham Lincoln. Let the business men and tolling: masses in the next presidential struggle have but the chance to cast their ballots for this ticket and again we shall be safely car ried to grand ond complete victory, like as we lead by Gen. Grant in '68 and 72, and by the lamented Garfield in 1880. We present this ticket as our choice for the Republican standard bearers in the coming nationul contest, and we believe, if nominated, that they will carry the grand old party on to victory, thus giving our country four years more of as sured peace and continued pros perity Respectfully. - W.

In nearly every branch of useful industry the supply of skilled workmen is unequal to the demand. From one cause and another, comparatively few serve the needed apprenticeship to trades necessary to pro duce finished workmen. The result is to crowd our workshops with poor mechanics. And one evil of trades unions is that they make no distinction between good "work men and botches. In our day very few boys are "bound" to serve a sufficient time to acquire a proper knowledge of thir etrades. Occupations re quiring live or seven years to master are picked up in half the time, and so soon as n half-taught apprentice can secure a mem bership he sets himself np as a journeyman, deman ling journeymen's wages, altnough he may have mastered no more than the rudiments of his trade. This system works evil all round, and employers and parents should unite to break it up. Another error needing attention is the too common notion that it is degrading to learn a trade. A profession, a clerkship something neat, easy and "genteel" is sought rather than honest, useful im 1. This Is all wrong, and the sooner it comes to be understood the better will it be for our boys and for the country.

Natural Cariosities of Nevada. Fifteen miles north of Lovelock station, Nevada, there is a petrified tree 600 feet in length and two feet thick. Its branches are still perfect. The tree is lying on the surface of the ground, and is petrified through from bark to core. Clarence King, the geologist, pronounced it one of the greatest natural curiosities he had ever seen. Mr. Lovelock says he recently stumbled across a petrified rattlesnake in the vicinity of his ranch. The serpent's head was gone, but his body and rattles were whole. The rattles gave out a metallic sound, when shaken, like the ringing of a bell. The body of the snake is as hard as a rock. Teach your child the value of ihe Sab bath as a day for the spiritual improve ment of the mind; that on the Sabbath morn the ordinary work of the week should not be resumed if it is possible to avoid it; that the day should be passed in atienuance upon religious service of some kind, or exercises that will ennoble and spiritualize the nature.

Dear Clara : I have been so much em ployed in trying to enre a case of melancholia for the past two weeks that I have not found time to do anything else.

Acnrious discovery was made at the Vernon House, on Clark street, at Newport, which was formerly the headquarters of "VV'ashington, Lafayette and Eochambeau. It beeame necessarv to remnvp n. lnr broad panel from over the fire place in one of the upstair rooms. Behind this panel was discovered an old fresco painted in oil on plaster, and measuring some three feet square. In one corner there are the figures of three beautiful females, one being dressed in red, with long hair flowing beneath a hat ornamented with plumes. In her hand she holds a mandolin. This group stands at the gate of a castle beyond which may be seen a cluster of houses with red-tiled roofs. Opposite is a tnrhaned negro hold ing tero snow-white horses somewhat heavily harnessed. In the background is a gathering of Indians with long lances. The painting is bordered above by a strip of yellow, over which is a frieze of passion flowers and sea-shells. In Trance the public school is made an agent in developing and strengthening the virtue of economy.

The child is furnished with a bank-book, He can add to the sum deposited, bur he cannot draw iL out until he attain his majority, when the whole sum is his own. Children are encouraged to save their money. They are allowed to place the smallest sums. vpn in n enn i ti.o hands of their teachers, who ave to keep an account with each child.

A strictly authentic story comes fVom the Ehnira Free Prow at firsthand from the university town. TheEev. Dr. Wisncr,ot' sacred memory, long pastor of the Presby terian church, was called upon by a wan dering Baptist divine, who complained that he was denied access to the pulpit ol hw own order in that town. The Doctor kindly invited him to officiate in his open commu nion pulpit at an evening service, whereat the immersionist brother took his usual course, which was, ho said, to find his test when he was ready to preach the sermon, and by the help of the Spirit provid :heu and there three divisions or heads .or it. He chanced to open on this occasion at the scripture which contains tho verec, "! am fearfully and wonderfully made" The last letter, being at the end of the irinted line, wac hidden in the binding, and the preacher read the text with the omieaion. "My brethren," said he, "this is a pecu liar passage. I don't know as I ever read it before. But it is in the sacred word, 'Jid must have some valuable lessons foi our meditation. "I am fearfully and wonder fully mad," says David, in this xwrtiou of the holy writ. "And first we learn that it is possible for a saint to be mad." "And second, that even a holy man may be fearfully and wonderfully mad." ' Then,afterscratchinghis head repeated! for his third division, it came out thus: "And we are led to remark in the third place that a good man, fearfully and woa derfully mad, is a very peculiar creature." A cheap methoa of constructing a green-house is thus described. Dig onfc a pit m a siue mil, where the upper eutf will be just above ground and the lower end will be two or three feet above ground, where the door must bo,' with two or three steps down for on entrance. Wall up, roof the wall, and cover the whole with sash as in hotbeds, the iaah having more fall, say three feet in a width of two, the house being fiiteen by ten. Erect in this the stand c f shelves, and when it is time to take up the sum mer flowers, bulbs, etc., store them here. The glass should be covered with a thick straw mat, which can be removed even when the weather is coldest, in clear weather, for an hour or two at midday, to get the warmth and influence of the sun. At such times ventilation should also be attended to, by slightly opening a sash or two. Xo fire is needed. Nearly ail readily flowering plants will bloom, "nil there will scarcely be a week durinf the winter that a bouquet may not be gath ered, if the house is properly managed.
