Tin stale fraud of Senate executive
sessions is being hunted to its'death. It
is one of the survivors of a goodly batch
of "twin relics." If the salvation of the
country hung on the secrecy of the executive
session the country would go to the
bou-wous:
Nobody asks more of a Chief of Pofice

Senator Molting, of Ritchie, arraigns
the Mason tax bill before the high court of

kill this snake more than once before it is
dead beyond resurrection.

This very serious luiatuke is bused on
toe ptculiar eleventh-hour activity ol the
Louisville Chief of Police. The Wheeling
Chief ol Police hasn't done anything as
yet, but nobody can toll what revonge he
may contemplateon the respectable people
who mean that he shall do his duty or be
labeled as lie deserves. "There Is groat
indignation" In this city, but it is over an
outrage of another kind.
Or the appointees to foreign missions
two, McLane, of Maryland, and Pendleton,
ol Ohio, are well-known and ought to

Messrs. Phelps and Jackson may be quite
as well qualified, but the country does not
know them. Certainly our Minister to
England should bo a man experienced in
public affaire, having the confidence ol
liia countrymen. In these times ol Irish
agitation delicate questions arise, and a
mm ol proud temper onght to be at the
British Court to represent American interests.
Mr. Phelps may have all the
qualifications, but this remains to be demonstrated.

Washington, March 23.?The messonra
and doorkeepers of'the Senate have
en instructed not to talk to outsiders,
i additional doorkeeper has been atained
at the gallery door oi the Senate
ening upon the press room. The 'puree
is to make tare that the publication
executive secrets which the Senators
ink has grown to be an evil oi great
ignltude, shall no longer continue.
The Pott says editorially this morning:
t is impossible that the Senate should
vo kept paco with the rapacity oi the

nate accept tho situation to the extent oi
rnishing the public day by day with
ch a synopsis of its actions and discusma
in secret sessions as may not conflict
th any conscientous obligations to fortn
powers or confidential interests,"
Sgests that this is all correspondents
(.and is nothing but what the Senate
nld grant without any compromise of its
[nitv, and concludes by intimating that

so mysteriously ten years ago
from her home near Swanton, Garrett
county, Md., and who has been considerhe
ed dead for many years past, wasdiscov?>
ered to-day in the person of a young
:k. woman found dying In abject poverty with
is' consumption In a tenement house, No. 7.
it, North Carolina street, this city. - The dis2d
covery was mado under singular circumstances.
It appears that a few days ago
' Mr. Nelson Savage, the latherofthe missing
it girl, had a dream that his daughter was
er dying in a garret in Baltimore, and upon
j. telling his wife of the dream she per.
stiaded him to come to Baltimore, and
make search for the lost one. Mr.
* Savage arrived here on Wednesday, and
ir, called upon Police Marshal Gray, and
j tho city dotectives were detailed on the
.' case. Yesterday- Detective Hagan ascer
tained that a young woman whom no one
knew anything of was at the point of
:h death at Mrs. Matthews' tenement house,
- n , _? a m_ .1... iL.
1(j ou norm uiiryuu.i tjirnui. iu-u?y wo
. father and detective went to the house,
"" aud there Mr. 8avage found his daughter
n- in poverty and dying from consumption,
g, Their meeting was sad and tender. His
0> once sweet and beautiful daughter was
now a prey to the ravages of disease, with
almost lleshless bones, sunken cheeks and
10 hollow eyes. Too weak to raise her head,
ig she cotjjd only by a smile show some sign
of rec^nltion, as her aged father bent
over her bod and wept bitterly at her conP?
dition, yet he felt joyful that she was once
more restored to him, though on her
a death-bed. Mrs. Matthews cried when
she saw the daughter restored to her
father, and the stern officer turned his
* bead aside, while his eyes, which have
io looked on many scenes of misery and hord
ror, filled up, and tears ran down his
cheeks at the noion of the father and
; daughter. Everything isnow being done
8 for the sufferer that money can provide.
As (lie girl cannot speak no tidings of ber
whereabouts during tbo past ten yeare can
be learned from her, and the cause of her
disappearance will probably forever rei
main a mystery. For over nine yeare her
n parents and friends hail given her up as
r. dead. Over $5,000 has been spent by her
t parents in searching for lier.

Manufacturer* Kxpr??a Greater CooUtleuce

i, Philadelphia, March 23.?A alight ina,
crcaae in prices and consequently in mar*
5f ket values is reported from the carpet,
.1, shod manufacturing and iron industries of
of the city, and manufacturers express a
10 greater confidence in a near revival of
ig bafiineBS than they have for some time
t- post. The general depression which has
t marked so many branohes of trade is be'
lieved to be almost over. Among other
* evidences of the rovival in business is the
fact that the great carpet manufacturing
companies of Lowell, Thompsonville
and Yonkers, which largely ;eg
r- ulate tho price of Philadelphia
carpets, have already placed an extra cent
9- uud a half on the yardoUabric, and with
10 tho Drat ol Aprll will yof add another cent,
v .Any . very satisfactory results from that
K action can hardly bo " expected' at this
it period of the year, as the manufacturing
l- season la already over. Owing, however,
j t%llio fact very Httlo fabric of any value
lias been turned out during the past sea11
son, oh account of the strikes in every cari
pet manufacturing. (listrict/ causing a
n paucify of akilled labor,'the fall Bales are
? likely to be large, and a , difficulty will
, probably bo experienced in producing
11 enough to meet the demand. To this
10 condition of aflairs al( the manufacturers
are looking forward; and, while they ex18
press a belief in its probable arrival, they
n are somewhat shy of prophesying with

Suakix, March 23.?Tbe Gu?rds ha\
returned Irom tbe zereba. Ike toU
British losa during the tight on Sunda
waa 5 officers and 51 privates killed an
170 wounded. Tho rebel loss was lull
1,500. In tbe rush a large number <
rebels entered a corner of the zereba, an
in tho desperate fight which ensued thei
every Arab was killed.
Early this morning the Guards wer
sent forward to relalotco tho British at
vance. The sailors have landed a nuui
bar of heavy guna and they are being sen
to tbe front aa quickly as possible.
Another dispatch says: The guards a
an early hour this morning were sent t
the zereba erected yesterday by Genera
McNeill to render asaistance. After lb
battle yesterday General McNeill was un
molested. Ho waa found well cntrenchei
in the zereba, situated seven miles south
west of Suakim. The guards were sen!
back by McNeill for water and provisions
They succeeded in making tho retun
journey unmolested. A force of iufantrj
and cavalry with euppliea for the zereba
escorted by a convoy of guards, wero al
once dispatched to General McNeill. A
umber of heavy guna have been for
warded to tbe front.
A general advance towards Tamai will
uu uiuuu wuiguii uj uvucmi uiauauj
During tho advance Suakim will be garrisoned
by sailors. The zereba constructed
by General McNeill will be shifted because
of the intolerable elTeets of the rapid decomposition
of hundreds of bodies ol slain
Arabs lying: close around. A spy report!
the .hostile Arabs growiog in numbera
around Uasheen.
M1NG1.EO WITH DUST.
Owing to the labor involved it is decided
not to shift General McNeil's zeraba.
The troops are engaged in dragging
the bodies of the slain to the leeward ol
tho zeraba. Dense heaps of corpses of the
rebels and native camp-followcrs are mingled
with the carcasses of 500 camcls. The
ground is strewed with rilles, spears and
shields.
The heat is oppressive. Two hundred
and fifty sick anil, wounded to-day sail for
England. I.utcr official accounts place
the losses of tbe Arabs in yesterday's tight
at 1,000, all told. It this figure is correct
the losses of the enemy exceed those ol
the British less than in any battle of tbe
past three years. Osman Digna has 25,000
men at lamai. General Graham will
reach Tamai and give Osinan Digna battle
to-morrow. It will be a pitched tight, and
will probably be a more decisive one than

Keep* Up the ParMJUiiviitiiryTeiikliiff.
London, March 23.?Lord Edward Fitimaurice,
Under Secretary lor Foreign
Affaire, received this afternoon. In the
course oI an interview, daring which
much was said *o{ the Kusaian question,
ho answered a question whether the inquiries
frequently addressed to the government
in Parliament about Afghan diplomacy
complicated the affair. lie said:
"These inquiries are intended of course to
injure Mr. Gladstone, but they have the
effect as well of discrediting lCngland in
the oyes of Europe. It is not the Irish
parly alone that keeps up tiiis form oi
parliamentary bosaing, but tho men on
the opposition benches whose patriotism
should carry them abovo this partisan
metboS."
"There is a strong fool in? abroad that
tho government is withholding important
information on the Alghan matter. Is
that true?"
"Yes, in the sense that wo do not propose
to publish any ol the correspondence
on the matter until we can publish it as a
whole. It would be manifestly against
public interest to publish what wo have at
present when tho next mail bag may reverse
the existing relations. Hut the fact
is that so far as the movements on either
side of tho frontier are concerned the Foreign
Oflico knows only a little more than
what has been already doubtless Bent. I
have no desire to nnderrato the gravity of
the present crisis, but 1 am not without
hope that diplomatic efforts may prove
suutcooiui iu n?iuui(i uu |,|i(iuoiugj?
well, a collision that can prove of email
value to either country."
During the conversation a messenger
from the Foreign Office brought a dispatch
announcing tho death ottho British
Minister at Pokin, whoso death Lord Edmund
Fitzmaurlca lamented with feeling
an that of the most valued representative
of England in the far East, and as one
who had held an important trust since the
earliest days of European diplomatic relations
with Ohina or Japan.
Tho Under Secretary of War was perhaps
pardonably roticent, but from his
manner the correspondent implied that
he did not apprehend immediate military
complications, nor would he speak of the
recent skirmish near Saakim, the first
afternoon dispatch about which was incomplete
and looked Berious for tho British
troops.
THE MAN OK IIIOX
Showa Himself as a Mnstur of Debate In tU?
German UHchtttny,
Bkkmn, March 23.?The recont debate
on the steamsMp subsidy was one of the
most interesting episodes in the Relchstas
for a number of years. It showed the
Chancellor as a master of debate. It was
here where he spoke the wonis regarding
the Influence of dynasties on politics. His
frankness had something startling In it It
was generally believed that his remarks
were intended to apply to tho intrigues of
the small principalities with regard to
Brunswick succession. The four days
of long debates may be cited as
one of the rare occurrences in
which debates influenced the final vote.
According to the sentiment prevailing at
present It is not unlikely that on the third
reading of the bill next Monday the
African line will also be granted, toSBther
with the Asiatic and Australian
nes. Tho amount of tho yearly subsidise
for the last two lines is 4.900,0110 marks.
In spite of all this the Impression produced
by these parliamentary contests
w|U he ? mixed one, aa it requires tho entire
moral effort of a man who has no
equal in his peculiar field of activity to aectjrc
an insignificant majority for a
peclfio national overtaking.
