To the Interests of the First District?Arrareciates
His Splendid
Endorsement?Public Building Bill
of Interest.
Special Dispatch to the Intelligences
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2S.?The Ohio
river in general, and Wheeling and the
First district In particular, nvll! receive
the special attention of Representative
JDoarener at the coming session of Congress
In his capacity as member of the
committee on rivers and harbors. He
Is naturally a hard worker in committee,
but he feels he should show extra,
appreciation of that magnificent endorsement
give/t him November 6.
Captain Dovcner says the bill to be
submitted from his committee will carry
an appropriation of about $33,000,000,
and of this he expects the improvements
in which his constituents are es- j
peclally Interested will receive a liberal
share. The committee has had several
meetings, and It is believed the
bill will be ready to be Introduced early
in the session.
President's Messago Delayed.
It is not believed that Congress will
receive the President's message the
first dayi of the session. Recent I
deaths of members will probably cause
adjournment almost Immediately utter
the houses are called together, and
the reading of the message may therefore
be postponed until Tuesday.
Captain Dovcner is specially solicitous
about the public building bill, in !
which Wheeling Is directly Interested,
and, In addition, has been Interviewing i
the heads of the departments for the
benefit of his constituents. His time j
at the beginning of the session is likely i
to be very much occupied. He will
leave here Saturday evening for Ha- i
gerstown, Md.. where he is to deliver !
an address Saturday at the memorial
services to be held under the auspices
of the order of Elks. Mrs. Doverxer
does not expect to join her husband
here until after the Christmas holidays.

Of New York Discussed in Open
Meeting by Reform Committee.
Conditions Found to be Bad.
NEW YORK, Nov. 2S.?The tenement
house committee held an opvn meeting
to-day, at which the question of "Vice
and prostitution la the tenement#," was
discussed by the special committee of
the committee appointed for the purpose
of investigating this feature of tenement
house life. The Rev. Dr. Robert
L. Paddock, of the Protestant Episcopal
pro-Cathedral, said that the conditions
as found by him.in the course of
hl3 work in what is known geographically
as the Eighth assembly district,
were very bad, exceedingly bad. He
uoid be had talked with many policemen,
postmen and others whose duties
took thorn into the tenement houses and
their verdict had invariably been that
there was a. very largo number of the
tenement houses In which apartments
were rented to women for Immoral purposes
with the knowledge of the landlord,
the agent or housekeeper, and the
other tenants of the building. He had
had hundreds of complaints from parents
as to the moral elTect of this condition
of affairs upon the young girls ;
and boys of the district and stated that I
to his certain knowledge there were j
majiy men and women whose sole bus- j
iness was the procuring or youn? girls j
to enter those tenement house apart- |
mvnts and lead a Jlfo of immorality.
Dr. Paddock gave It as his opinion j
that the dark and unllffhted hallways j
of the tenements were the chief reasons J
for the prevalence of the vice In that i
district. ]t was there, he said, that
small children llrst came into temptation
and he suggested that the laws requiring
the halls to be lighted be rigidly
Dr. Paddock stated further that he
considered the gambling evil one ot the
most closely associated with that of
prostitution. He also declared that he
considered that the moral standard of
the entire east side had been lowered by
close and intimate association with the
women who live in Hats and houses in
the so-called "Red Light districts.'1
To Die With Him?German Succeeded

Loulck, a German living jit 45.15 Ogden
street, this city, tied his, dog to a bed
post on the second floor of his ho/use,
sot fire to the mattress; tied .a rope..
around his own neck and then .hanged
himself from the bannister leading to
tho first floor. Shortly afterwards,
neighbors heard the dog harking and ;
saw smoke pouring out of a window of
Loulck's house. A man named Gelsel.
who heard the dog yelping-, gained an .
entrance to the house through a window.
He released the dog, throw the ,
burning bed-clothes out the window
and as he was running down the stairs
for the purpose of turning in an alarm
of fire, he ran into the lifeless form of j
Louick. He quickly cut the body down
and sent for medical aid, but Louick
was beyond human aid. Loulck's wife
died some months ago. as a result of an
accident and tills is believed to have
been the principal reason for his act.

Achieving Success.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.?The state
department has cabled Minister Conger
to forward the text of the agreement
reached by the foreign ministers at Pekin.
Meanwhile he will withhold his
signature until the President has had an
opportunity to satisfy himself as to
this Important document and to mako
such changes as will bring it in accord
wjth our policy.
It is safe to prcdict that this particular
agreement will not become effective
!n its -present shape. It appears that,
upon Inquiry directed to the powers
themselves, their ministers nr. Pekln
have not correctly reflected their present
views as to the basis of the peace
negotiations. This statement certainly
is true as to a majority of the powers
interested, and the ract is regarded
as warranting the prediction that the
agreement must be modified or abandoned.
Valuable Personal Kc3ults.
It is learned at the state department
that while these negotiations are dragging
along at Pekln. fomc of the
American consuls in China are achieving
practical and valuable results by individual
efforts. They are addressing
themselves in cases directly to the viceroys
of the great provinces where
American property interests may have
suffered, to secure indemnity and roparation,
and in most cases they are succeeding
very well. It is surmised from
the latest Chinese advices that tho
English consuls are doing likewise, and
are collecting many claims, and tho
moneys are being turned over to tho
mission interests which suffered. If
this movement continues, it Js entirely
possible tlmt neither the United States
nor Great Britain will be obliged to concern
themselves with the prosecution of
individual claims for indemnity through
the slow-moving agencies at Pekln.
