read by Dr. J.I I.Kauch,Secretary of the Illinois
Slate Hoard of llealth.lt gave the resulj
of observations in regard to the relative
size of the'liver and spleen, and the norma!
temperaturo in Texas cattle. In the
discussion of the. paper Drfl. Ityani;of
Texas, ami Hunt, of New Jewey; expressed I
the opinion that the Texas cattle fever was
a decease that developed when the animals
.were removed from their native State to
other, climates, and said' that'the study
of the conditions of its development was
most important Jn the interests of science,
utul us n means of ascertaining the means
ol preventing that and oth<}r similar forins
.'of cattle diseases'. Dr. Elisha Harris, of
' New York, especially urged that the fullest
investigation ofthe pathology and eleogy
. of gitch diseases be promptly made, and his
name with that of Dr. J. K. Smith were
added to that of the standing Committee
on Cattle Diseases. ;

ol the Supervising Inspector of steam vessels
was willed to day to tho dispatch from
Chicago, stating that three deaths from
drowning, which occurred there lust Sunday,
was the result of a strango rujlug o(
tho Supervising Inspectors ol steamboats
that tUBS must nnK%lnili?r < ft nannHw nf
$500 for each person carried, take any jlisaciigeraon
board. The Supervising Inspector
dencral says:; f'No regulation was ever
made by tho Department or by Supervising
Inspectors which could he tortured into a
prohibition of Buving by tugs of the lives
of drowning people. It isvtrue, a penalty
of $50(J attaches to any steam vessel which
carries passengers without equipments required
by tho statute, but to construe this
as a prohibition of life saving is to con*
struo it in malice and to use such constructlon
as a tiemlish means of forcing a change
in tho law."
A tugboatman in tho harbor of Chicago
was recently fined by tho Collector of Customs
for currying a pleasure party on his
tujj without equipments and life-saving ap*
Sliances, which tho law requires. The
ecretary of the Treasury remitted the line,
but directed the Collector to notify all tugboatmen
that the law would thenceforth
be enforced against all towing bouts which
under any circumstances carried other thau
their own crews. witlmnf <?nn?n1ui???
with the terms ami conditions of the net
relating to the equipment of passenger
vessels. Soon niter the promulgation of
the above notice vague rumors came to
this ollke that threats had been made by
.tugboatihen that ifthey could ,not carry
passengers under any circumstances without
incurring a penalty of $o00 then they
| would not save people from drowning,
oven when they could do so. The question
whether they, could do so, without, incurring
the penalty never has been presented
either to this oilice or the Department,
except for the statement inude in the newspapers.
lf .it was referred, this oilice
would have regarded such a question as
too preposterous to be even thought of
except by persons with diseased brains.; Iu
view of the occurrence Bet forth, however,
this office regrets the question has not'been
propounded to it in order that it might
nave expressed its emphatic disapproval to
the assumption of the Jaw.

after tho1 President who worships in 'them,

thing elso but common brick walla. That
iaino dingy littlo building, though not <
much larger than log cchool housea often <
are on the western frontier, being now used {
on a carpenter and paint abop, has nevertheless
something of a history, '? J \ 4
How old it i? no one nretenda to siiv. 1
yet it Htood there years before many of the %
famous buildings which now adorn Wash*
ington were erected. It first come into

to inspect his favorite .nags. Many yet liv- \
inn recollect those 'dayt when iie rode
about Washington ou horseback, and in? 1
terestingstories of his feats of horseman- 1
ship are told. j
Somehow the "White Houso stables" ,
were removed, or rather some other building
perhaps Hear ttrfKxecutivd Mansion, '
was chosen in which to care for tho Prcai- '

many of Washington's first citizens reeeiv- I
ed their first instruction in all the hard '
workol early school days. !
When, ftftur Commodoro Pefry's treaty 1
with Japan the embassy of that govern* 1
ment came to Washington to accept the I
hospitality of the people of the Setting Sun, 1
they were fclvetf a grand reception by tlie 1
District olliclnls in the same little building. 1
It was with this embassy that the famous 1
"Japanese Tommy," a little nobleman of 1
that country, came to Washington. The 1
embflsiy occupied during their stay the
north wing of willard's Hotel. Just "down .
F street a short distance, almost adjoining i
the site of the Ebbitt House, was a boarding
house, where, lived a young lady of uncommon
beauty. "Tommy" was fascinated
with the girl, and being quite a tluent
English scholar, begun to pay his addresses 1
to her. What was at lirat simply respect i
on her part for hishigh position ripened into
love, and the returned the "Jap's" atlectionate
overtures iu a manner that showed '
how deeply she was jjnfutuated with him. '
uivy wero ituvrwuroa married, inougll not I
without ditliculty, because, of the custom of
the Japanese' forbidding'marriage with
foreigners without tbo permission of the
Moguls of the country.
lti after years the little building underwent
another change. The scboolhouso
gave place to an eutirfcly different avocation.
It Viw*occupied by one of the many
artists whoso works have charmed the connoisaeurs.viaitiiig
Washington, and quite a
collection of works of art took the place of
the school forms and benclres. Still later
it became a carpenter and paiut shop,
which is its character to-day. Diagonally
across from the building,* on the northwest
comer of Thirteenth and G
streets, stands a tall,' three story dwelling;
so tall is it that from its i^lain exterior it
looks much, like a tower if one sees at a

ime when ho might go through to the
?acific Const.
Mr. Vandei-bilt was greatly pleased with
lis trip, which ho said to-day was the
ileasantest he had over made. While the
rip westward was made slowly, and usuilly
by daylight, the return trip was made
n quick time. The train was run from
Llurlinjjton to Chicago, 207 miles, in tour
lours, including stops, and from Chicago
o Burlington in equally fast time.
Mr. Vanderbilt staved at home to-day
liter his arrival. He was tired by the long
me. ne saui to a reporter, who asked hia
)pinion ot Western newBpaper ways:
-.,4 Oh don't speak of that matter.-' It iis
i6t worth talking about. Let it stand just
is it is. Those who know qie and are faniliar
with my mannor of talking do not
iced to bo told that I was grossly misrepresented
in- that Chicago interview. People
vho are uuacquainted with me will put no
aith in any denial I may make.
"I never said, of course, a good many of
;hc . things that were attributed to me.
Cuke, for instance, the reported remarks
ibout ltailroad Commissioners. It has
>cen well enough known for several veara
hat I am bitterly opposed to State Commissioners.
The idea of inv Baying that
he railroads had to buy up the Commislioners.
I never bought a Railroad Commissioner
in my life, nor did my father beore
me. We neverwentto Albany for anv
well purpose. That I should make auy
luch-statement aa those reporters put in
iiy mouth is simply ridiculous. I do not
jelieve in StatpKailroad Commissions,
ind I have fought tho matter in
his State the beat I could. I coness-that
T. have been beaten badly.
L ean not favor a Commission in this State
vhen the principal competition to the CenraJ
is not subject to tho same Board of
Jommissioners.The railroad laws of the diferent
States are not alike. The Couimislionere
of Pennsylvania}, for instance,would
irobably not act in harmony with those of
tfew York, and yeit the Central has to.comiete.
with a Pennsylvania road. That is
ust it. tYou see, that is the reason why I
aybr a; National Commissipn that shall
onsider tho relations of all the railroads,
md I oppose separate Commissions in the
litleruht States. What I said about the
nti-monopolists was twisted about in a
imalarway. Ypu ask me about that ex>ression
'the public be d?d,'. which has
teen put in my mouth. Yon say that it has

me. Things that I really said
fere left out and I was made to - say other
hinjpthntl had,not said at all. Suppos
ub uiai me expression that 1 am reported
o.have made revealed my real sentiments.
Id people think that I would publish such
n opinion? This is not my way. It was
lot my father's, and neither, he nor, I ever
ised''I,or my' in the way that I aui siiplosed
to have done. As President ot tho

ong as I manage the road I shall continue

tho address of welcome, in which
ho says: "Bat recently a wild, desporati

tho States against tho very existcnco of you)
flourishing and prosperous establishments,
in which, as wo all well know, there arc
invested hundreds of millions of capital,

It is a now outbreak of fanaticism.

The speaker counselled closer and more
, complete organization to vindicate, guard
and protect tho fundamental principled of
' i ijiht and personal liberty.
11. Rubens, a delegate from Chicago, then
made a motion to excludo all outsiders, including'
the press renters, which alter
discussion prevailed, and a guard was
placed at the doors. The proceedings ol
the secret session resulted in tho election
ol I? rank A. Falk, of Milwaukee, chairman;
Augustus Timmu, of Illinois, and J. Katli.
of Missouri, secretaries.
All tho States in tho Union wero represented
except three, among which is Indiana,
which telegraphs that an organization
was just being effected.' In secret session,
. una aiteruoon, tiie Committee on Organ,

tloa, the an una] dues to be $250 lor each

The Committee on Resolutions reported
1 the following.
i WiiEttEAs", The Prohibition party has for
, the few. last* years en erod upon an aggrea,
ive warfare'against the" cause of personal
freedom, and lias aucqecded by hostile legislation
In some States, violating the princi1
pie of personal liberty, destroying .legitii
mateljusiness, injuring the productive industries
and commercial interests of the
jicupie, {
wiiereas, As the said Prohibition party
has of late years formed,a Btrong, energetic
aud powerful national organization, and
by the means thereof has met with all its
successes, while on the other side the Liberal
party has been inactive and either not
organized at all, or only insufficiently and
in a few localities.
Jlaohtd, That there now exists the mosl
urgent necessity for the formation of a
National organization capable of meeting
th'o enemy when and wherever he attacks
our rights aud business'interests and of
i strengthening our common cause in orderto
save our. property from confiscation and
destruction.* r
llcsolvcd, That our cause is not only the
cause of legitimate business but the cause
of great principles, the principles of personal
liberty, of tho protection of men
against the unwarranted and despotic
usuipatlon of power belonging to free citizens
of this'city and the destruction of the
> rights of which have and never can be
surrendered to Stnte(or society.
Jimhed, That we congratulate and at the
same time thank the State of Ohio for its
last victory, by which for tho first time of
late it has resented the wild and fanatical
prohibition movement, and that we commend
its example of union . and organization
to the rest of the States.
