San Kuakcisco, Sept. !J.?The celebrated
Sharon divorce ease, which has
occupied the attention of the Pncillc
roast fur a number of years, culminated
Unlay in a sensational incident which
resulted in the placing of Sarah Althea
Sharon. now Mrs. David S. Terrv, in iail
for thirty days and her husbaml, Judge
Terry, fur six months.
The Supreme Court of California, a
few months ago, announced itn decision
in tin1 case sustaining tin? decision of
the State Superior Court, which declared
that Mrs. Tciry had been legally married
t.? the late ex-l'nited States Senator
H'illiamSharon, and that she was entitled
to a portion of Sharon's estate. A
short tinii! after the announcement of
this decision by the State Supreme
Court the executors of
the will of the late William
Hharon made application to the United
States Circuit Court for a bill to revive
ami carry into execution MO decree 01
the Cirruit Court entered in 1885, in the
suit of Win. Sharon against Sarah Althea
Hill, to obtain its decree adjudging certain
papers in her possession, nurportintf
to In* a marriage contract between
them, to be a forgery and directing it*
cancellation and enjoining its use in any
. manner.
The decree entered by the circuit court
in this cas was in favor of the plaintiff
and declared that the alleged marriage
contract was a forgery, but in the ineantime
the Sharon divorce suit was pcndi?K
ia the State courts and William
Sharon had ?lie?i. When the executors
recently applied to the Circuit Court for
a bill ot revision Sarah Althea Ilill, who]
fiiw since become Mrs. Terry, entered a
demurrer, and the decision*to-day wasI
rendered upon that demurrer, which the
court overruled.
Tin- decision, which was very lengthy,
was read bv Associate Justice Field, of
the I' nited States Supreme Court, and
Judge Sabine, of the i'istrict Court. The
former decision of .Judge Sawyer, declaring
the allowed marriage contract a
n, an?i oruering the uolonuant to
deliver it up for cancellation, is fiiifitaiued.
and the executors are given the
ngnt t?? handle Mr. Sharon's property
nntramtneled by any action ou the part
?'f Mrs. Terry.
During the trial Mrs. Atliea Hill cried
out to Justice Field, "Judge Field, we
liear tliat you have been bought. We
would like to know if that is so aud what
UgurvM you hold yourself at. It serins
that Ilo iM-mnn i*iin ii>t in?lim in tliin

to protect her with a dirk knife, was also

Cincinnati, 0. Sept. :j.?The nttemp
of n rsvisher to assault two little girl
caused u sensation in Eden i'urk yestei
day afternoon, the citizens living on th
fringe of the resort turning out in u bod;
to hunt down the villain. Many of th
iustlv enraged men were armed, and lnu
they" caugfit the fellow a scene of vio
lence might have occurred. The attemn
was made about lmlf-pust two o'clock
when two little girls, the oldest abou
I thirteen years of age and the other abou
two years younger, were attacked by i
I strange man in the upper part of tlx
park. Seizing theui by the arms, In
dragged them into a clump of bushes
The oldest began to scream, and hi
drew a large pocket-knife. Brandishing
it, ho informed her that unlest
she desisted, he would rut her throat
This had the effect of Increasing hci
fear, and she redoubled her screams and
her efforts to get away. After a strug
gle of several moments she linally succeeded,
and, breaking mjt, ran down
the hill with her companion to the row
of houses owned by Kuiery brothers,
facing the upper end of the park.
There, almost breathless, she gasped
out her story to a couple of gentlemen.
A party was at once formed to hunt the
scoundrel, and the park was thoroughh

few moments after the searchers hud
given up, Court Officers Morris and McCarthy,
who were on duty, saw a man
standing >n the bushes where theassault
had taken plucc. On approaching
him he walked away, a|}?1
reached Ci rand view avenue ' before
he was overtaken. The officers narrowly
questioned him, and received the
most unsatisfactory answers. He was
taken to the Walnut Hills I'oljce Station,
where he told the oflicere tbut liifl
name was J. W. Maitkely, of New York
City. He stated that he was stopping al
the IVtlace Hotel, but could not remember
the name by which he was registered.
It was his custom, lie said, never
to give iiis right name at a hotel 01
on a railroad ticket, J{u dejiied having
attacked the girls, but nervously nil:
mittcd tiiat they might believe that lie
was the man. The oflicere brought him
to the Central Police Station, where lit
was exami/jed by Superintendent
Heitsch. On being peurched, a lot ol
wildcat bonds were found on hifjj. He

Vai.timoiik, Mi)., Hept, 3.?Miss Jdn
Traeey, a shapely brunette of Be veil teen
and a daughter of Policeman Tracey,
left her home early yesterday morning
disguised an a boy. Her parents knew
nothing of her escapade until nearly I
o'clock, when her mother went up to
her room to call her. On the fjoor of
her bedroom lay a magnillcent suit o!
brown hair, which the young lady had
cut oir. All of her feminine attire remained
in her room, hut further investigation
showed that an entire suit of her
brother's clothing was mituing, and so
was $25 in money. Mrs. Tracey was
completely prostrated by the disappearance
* of her daughter, and refused
to he comforted by the
other members of the family. So clew
of her whereabouts was obtained until
her brother returned home to dinner,
lie then informed hjs father he had
often heard Ida say she would like to go
to Chicago to visit her brothers, but she
supposed she would never get the
chance. This led Mr. Tiacy to think
she had really started for the Lake City.
He mwordimrlv notified the authorities
of his daughter's disappearance, tttid
they had telegrams sent over the West.
She wus cauglit at Cumberland, where
the olllcers hoarded the west-hound express
from this eity. The ojlicers had
lint little trouble in finding the young
lady with whom they seemed to he anquainted.
She wore a neat suit of bov'f
clothing, and had the appearance o? n
delicate young man.
After "being arrested sho did not at
tempt to deny that she was the young
lady they were after. She was taken t<i
jail, but refused to give the oflicer whc

[ crats have strong hopes of currying the
, State. From the German Press Bureau
t of the National Committee reports come A
daily, which if true, might cause the
| Kepublicnus to lose nil hopes of success .
' here. But these reports are undoubt- 1,1
edly manufactured in the brain of the
man in charge of that bureau, for they
are in violent contrast to those which ..
f have flooded the (ierman Bureau of the
. Republican National Committee. The w
ouantitv of mail which comes to General fn
L.'W. llabercorn daily, from Indiana, \\
show that in place of being discouraged \4
the Kepublicans thero have every reason J
. to feel confident that the State will go {t
i Republican and by a good majority. ?
t Many Germans who have heretofore
voted the Democratic ticket have de- j,,
dared for General Harrison. General jj
J llabercorn said yesterday that Thurman }l
, had a few friends among the Germans,
j but they are all old friends, however,
and he is not gainingnny new ones from s|

Xon-t*urtluui Action.
i
Washington, D. C., 'Sept. 3.?Mr.
1 Scott, of Pennsylvania, asked unanimous
I consent to introduce for present considL
oration, a bill supplementary to an act to
execute certain treaty stipulations relat.
ing to the Chinese, approved May 0,
1882. The bill passed without objection
or division.
[ Section 1 provides that from and after
the passage of this aet, it shall be unlaw'
ful for any Chinese laborer, who shall
1 at any tiino heretofore have been or who
may now or hereafter be a resident within
the United States, and who shall have
' departed or shull depart therefrom,
, qnd shall not have returned before the
passage oi this act, to return to the
United States.
Section 2 provides that no certificates
1 of identity provided for in the fourth
and fifth sections of the act to which
this is a supplement, shall hereafter be issued,and
everycertittcato hereafter issued
in pursuance thereof is hereby declared
vom nnu 01 no eueci; any uninese iaborer
claiming admission by virtue
thereof shall not be permitted in the
United States.
Section 3 provides that all duties
prescribed aiul liabilities, penalties and
forfeitures prescribed by the second,
tenth, eleventh and twelfth sectiens of
the net to which this is supplementary
arc* hereby extended and made applicable
to the provisions of this act.
.Mr. Scott stated that the proposed
legislation was the only means by which
the Chinese lalmrer could be kept out
of the country.
In the Senate at first Mr. George
moved the bill's reference to the Committee
on Foreign Relations, but that
course was resisted by Senators Stewart,
Mitchell and Dolph, and Mr. Vest declared
himself prepared to vote for the
bill immediately. Under theso circumstances,
Mr. George withdrew the
motion to refer.
Mr. Shermuu made a statement as to
the course of the Committee on Foreign
JiL'JatJoDH on tho subjerl unu advocated I
tho julsmu^'o of the bill on the ground t
thut every nntion had u right tu provide t
for its own preservation, even in contra- (
ventiou of existing treaties. <
Mr. Sherman gave a detailedstatement i
of the course of the Committee on For* f
eign Relations in regard to the treaty t
recently ratilied by the Senate, with r
amendments, including an interview ^
with the Secretary of State. No one
doubted the power of the United States t
Government to make the exclusion of t
Chin.esd absolute, even without 11 ego- 1
tiation, and a net* treaty, and even in t
violation of the existing treaty. Every t
nation hud a right to provide by law fo'r 'J
its own safety. But it bad been the gen- i
end desire of the Committee on Foreign ?
Relations to have the Chinese govern- ?
ment assent by treaty to the absolute r
exclusion. If tue object could be aceom- 1
plishiHl in that way, and without a direct 1
act of Congress, (not in harmony..with l
the treaty) the committee preferred to
have it done in that wav. A sub-coin- (
mittee of three had talked the matter t
over in a most friendly manner with t
.Secretary Bayard, and the Secretary had f
entered into negotiations with the Chi- t
ncse government in view of the proposed 1
mollifications of the treaty. The new t
treaty had been negotiated and had been t
ratified by the Senate with amendments
to make it clear, and which amendments,
it was supposed, the Chinese
minister would have agreed to.
Us supposed from what the newspapers
said that the rejection of the treaty
by the Chinese government was connected
with the Australian complications and
with the idea that the Chinese government
would have to concede to Great (
Hritain in reference to its Australian colonies
the same terms which are conceded
to the United States. He therefore
would not make any objection to the f
passage of the bill and he honed it would \
pass; but this was with the distinct
understanding that the House had passed
it with the knowledge that tfio new
treaty had been rejected by the Chinese
government. If that should prove
otherwise, the fault would not be thut of
the Senate.
Mr. Butler?If this bill should become
n law, would it nut be in direct contravention
of the treaty between the
United States and China?
.Mr. Sherman?I think that the bill is
inconsistent with the treaty, but as the
Chinese government declines to make
the proposed changes we have the miquestioned
right to pass this bill.
.Mr. llutler?So that there is a treaty
now existing between the United States
and China with which this bill comes
in conflict?
Mr. Sherman?Undoubtedly, because
under it, it is provided that for a certain
time and under certain circumstances
Chines*? laborers who havo been here
Iihvq a riirht to come back, and it isonlv .
because it? provisions have been vio- ,
lated by fraud and perjury that such a ]
law as thin is justifiable.
Mr. Uutier?'Then you admit that this
bill is a violation of the treaty and therefore
a violation of the Constitution of
the United States 7j <
Mr. Sherman?1 deny the erqo.
Mr. Butler?I will take back the ergo (
because it is not a violation of the con- 1
stitution, but you admit that it in a I
violation of an existing treaty? )
Mr. Teller-The term "violation* 'is not
a proper term where there is a legislalative
displacement of a treaty. Abro- '
gation is the term. '
Mr. Butler?Now I understand the ?
Senator from Ohio to state that this act 1
will be a violation of an existing
treaty.
Mr. Sherman?I did not use the word
('violation."
Mr. Butler?What is the word?
Mr. Sherman?It is the abrogation of
a treaty; just as a law may be abrogated.
A treaty Is a law.
Mr. Butler?This is an abrogation then
of the treaty between the United States
and China.
Mr. Sherman?It is a substantial
change.
, Mr. Butler?Is this the form in which
it is provided the treaty may be abrogated?
| Mr. Sherman?It is not, but there is
no doubt of the power of Congress to
. r-.M.nl ii trnnt.v If it nhooMnfi tn ttrnraiRA
, that power. Every nation has that right.
Mr. Butler?I think there is a good
deal of the game of politics in this whole
business, and it is not a very seemly
thing either. But for the fact that each
party wants to get the vote of the Pai
ciflc coast this scene would not be enl
acted in the Senate.
Mr. Mitchell?The Senator is speaking
i about his own party.
i Mr. Teller?How about the House of
I Representative!! passing this bill?
) Mr. Butler?The Republican Senate
i proposes to "see the House play and
i go one letter." That is the plain Engi
fish of it. Youinav call it a contraven
tion, n repeal, au abrogation of an existi
ing treaty, but the plain English oi it is
u the violation of a treaty. Ton can't
l? dodge it.
The debate was continued at much
length by Senator Gray, who depreca
the action of the Senate in putting i
necessary amendment* on the tree
which would have fully accomplished I
purposes of the pending hill, and
Senators Stewart, Vest, Dol]
Mitchell and George. The latter uifi
a long argument to prove that the 1
publicans were reasponsihle for t
Burlingume treaty aud for the reiecti
of various measuren to restrict Chin<
immigration. This argument was tra
???.! l.i. \f it/.)...! I Ua ilimlu*
that Mr. George in aborting that t
Republican party was responsible
opening the door to Chinese imtnig
tion was asserting his own ignorance
what he was talking al>out and that t
door had been opened by the Democra
party of California.
As Mr. Morgan desired to speak <
the bill it went over till to-uiorro

THE HBST W'AliD SCHOOL
The New lIulltlliiK Formally Dedicated Yet*
Ittnln) ?Sciiuttl Ojivio.
Wheeling's public schhols commenced
another scholastic year yesterday, and
they never opened under brighter auspices,
or gave better promise of good results
than yesterday.
Professor W. II. Anderson is again at
the head as Superintendent, and he has
just about the sarue corps of able teachers
be has had the past year. All the
principals are retained, and the only
changes made in the teaching force are
in some of the flower divisions. 'Jiio
attendance yesieruay wag quite large
for the opening dayIn
the afternoon the new and handsome
school building in Washington
district was formally dedicated to the
grand use for which it waa built. The
exercises were simple but very appropriate,
and were both interesting and
enjoyable to the large number of teachers,
pupils and citizens who were present.
'1 he other schools in the city were
dismissed in order that the teachers and
pupils, such of them us desired, might
nave an opportunity to inspect the splendid
building and attend the dedication.
All the principals of the other scIiooIh
were present, accompanied by a majority
of their teachers. There was a
quorum of the Board of Education, a
gratifying turn-out of the citizens < f
Washington district and former graduates
of the school. The older pupils
made up the balance of the throng that
iouB grammar room, and overflowed
iuto the adjoining class rooms. Superintemlent
Anderson and ^liss Harper,
the efficient principal, took their stand
in the hamtaome rotunda, and a# their
friends and patrons entered and passed
up the ornamental staircase tliey received
from them a cordial welcome.
Everyone was delighted with the
building, which has been described at
length in these columns before. They
found everything as described?complete,
modern, handsome and convenient.
The teachers from the other
schools became almost enviojis as they
looked in upon the elegant quarters their
sisters have.
About lirllO o'clock the bell rang for
the assembling of the audience in the
grammar room. The exercises opened
with the singing of "Auld Lang Syne"
by a chorus of young lady pupils. 1'raver
was offered* by Professor Blaisdell,
President of the Female College, after
which another song, "Tell Me Where
the "Fairies Dwell," was sung.
Commissioner A. C. llarrell gave a
short history of the. schools of Washington
district, consuming a large portion
of his time in reviewing the light
made for the present superb imiiding in
place of the old one.
The present building is the third
Hcliool building tbut has stood on that,
lot. The lirHt was built and occupied in
1849, soon after free schools wore established
in Wheeling and Ohio county
aud when that portion of the town was
known as Irwin district. It stood right
on the corner of Main and Fifth streets,
on the site of an old planing mill. It
was succeeded in 18(17 by the four-story,
poorly built structure that was torn
down to make room for the present
building.
There was present in the audience
yesterday Mr. J. M. Ewing, who was one
of the trustees of old Irwin district, and
who had with him the copy of an advertisement
that was inserted in Tin:
Argu* and another paper published here
at that time. lie found it in nn old
portfolio. It reads as follows:
"To CoNTUACTOiw,?A plan and specifications
for Irwin district public school
house may be seen at the store of Thos.
Johnston, jr., and sealed proposals will
bo received by the undersigned, Trustees
of said school district, until Saturday
next at o'clock p. in., for the erection
of said building.
[Signed] "I. G. Culbertson, W. P.
Wilson, J. M. Kwing.
"Wheeling, August 1,1848."
Mr. Harrell was followed by the Rev.
Bonj. Chew, a graduate of the school
(1883) who gave a history of tho Alumni
in a pleasing* way. There was another
song, "Far Away," and then Mr. Ross
Uhew reciteu "Tne uici scliooi Mouse,"
a very apropos select ion.
The dedicatory address was delivered
by the Kev. M, F. Dry den. it was vigorous
and pointed, showing the value of
public schools, the dangers that beset
them and other free institutions of th'm
country, and how through proper teaching
of patriotism and morality in the
public school to overcome these dangers.
It was one of Mr. Pryden's happiest
efforts, lie was followedbv the Kev.
Messr. Jones, King and Dornblascr,
Dr. Ulrich, l)r. J. II. Pipes and othern,
who made short addresses congratulating
the city, the district, the people,
the teachers' and the scholars on the
acquisition of such u line building.
The dedication from beginning to end
was a very pleasant afl'air.
