Troubles of a Bridal Party. “Say, what kind of hotel do you keep?" said a green-looking man, as he stepped up to the hotel counter and registered hie name, and added "and wife" after it. "Can a new mar ried oonple settle down here for two or three days and have a quiet visit with each other, and aot be scared out of their boot*?" Tho hotel man aaid they coaid go right to their room and stay there three days or three weeks, and never come to their meals if they didn't want anything to eat. "But what is the matter? Have yon bean annoy ed ?" asked the hotel man. "Annoyed 1 That don't express it. We were married day before yester day at St. Paul, anil went to a hotel. I live about sixty miles west of St. Paul, and the travelingmea put up a job on me. There were about a hun dred of them mowed in at St. Paul, and I'll be darned if they didn't keep us awake all night. They knew we were a bridal couple, and they bribed the bell-boye and porters to let them act for them, and when we rung the bell far the bell-boy, a drummer for u Chicago cigar factory came in and wanted to know what was wanted. “I ordered a pitcher of ice-weter, aud a Milwaukee drummer for a gro cery house brought i. in, and he looked at my wife, who is bashful, and made her feel real bad. "I didn't know they were drummers until next day, or I should have killed some oi them. "I rung the bell for coal, and a trayelingman who posted railroad card* around and works up excursions, he came in and fixed the fire, and he staid and poked it for half an hour, and he had more gall than ever I see. He asked so many questions about how long we had been married that I wanted to thump him, but my wife said we didn't want to have no row the first day we were married. "1 rung for a chambermaid to clean up the room and bring some towels, and it was about half an hour before she came, and I went down to the of fice to see about my trunk, and the chambermaid staid about half an hour, and was very interesting, and j my wife said she was a real pleasant, affectionate sort of a creature, far < above her station, and I tell you I : was mad when I found out that it was | a smooth-faced, handsome young Jew ish drummer for a Kansas City cloth ing house, who was in with the gang, and he gave the chambermaid three dollars to loan him an old dress so he could play chambermaid. When my wife told me that tbs chambermaid patted her on the cheek, and aaid she was the sweetest bride that was ever in tbe hotel, and asked for a kiss, and my wife said she thought it would be no harm to kiss a poor chambermaid, and encouraged her, I wanted to kill him, and I went down to the office next morning, but the smooth-faced unse bad gone to Fargo. It was all tbe landlord could do to hold me. "Well, while we were at supper somebody got into the room and put cracker crumbs in our bed, and we found a cold oil-cloth floor-mat over the top sheet, enough to freeze any body. "But the worst was at night. We bad just got comfortably in bed when there was a knock at the door and I got up, and the watchmen was there, and ha said he wanted to point out to me the fire-escape so I could get out in case of fire, aad I went out in the hall and he took rae 'way out to the end of tbe building to show it to me, and while I was looking out of the window my wife came running down the hall and begging me to save her. I asked what was the matter and she said as soon as I went out a man that looked like a porter came in the room and told her to fly and save herself, and follow her husband. She felt awful when ehe found there was no trouble, and we got back to our room half froze. I have got them fellows down fine. The fellow who called me 1 out to look at tbe fire-escape is a drummer for a Philadelphia milinery house, and tbe one that scared my wife out of her wits, travels for a J hearse factory at Rochester, N. Y. i My wife saye she would knew him, j because he has a big gray moustache and wears a diamond collar-button in his shirt. She said ehe thought he was pretty etylish for a porter, at the time. "They woke us up several times in the night to tell us what to do in case we were sick, and in tbe morning, be fore we were up, a waiter \irougbt up onr breakfast. He said tbe landlord sent it up, and he just stood around until we had to sit up in bed and eat bresktast. I thought at the lime that it waakind in the landlord to send up our breakfast, but when I found that tbs waiter who brought it up was a travelingman for a reaper factory at Rockford and remembered bow darned impudent he looked at my wife I could have murdered him, but tbe clerk aaid be had gone to Winnipeg. "It was juet about as bad coming down here on the sleeping-car, ami 1 think half the passengers on the car were those same drummers that were snowed in. It was colder than Alas ka, and I would order extra blanketi and they would steal (hem. I had more than twenty blankets put on the bed and in the morning there was nothing but a sheet over us. And every time there was a blanket spread over us there was a different porter put it on, and I think they were all travelingmen. "Every little while somebody would pull open the curtains and sit down on my berth and begin to pull off his hoots, and I would tell him the berth was occupied and that ho must have made a mistake, and he would look around at us as innocent aa could be, and ask our pardon, and than go out aud damn the porter. "Once I felt somebody feeling about my berth and I asked what was the matter, and tbe fellow said ho was looking for my wife’s shoes to black. "Then about every fifteen minutes the conductor would open the cur tains and hold a red lanturn iu and ask for our tickets. I think they punched my ticket sixty-five limes. Anyway it looked like a porous plas ter when I got up in the morning. 1 think it was tbe travelingmen who were playing conductor, but I was sleepy and thought the beat way was to let them punch it. "Well, about 3 o'clock in the morn ing somebody aroused us and said it was time lo get up, as all the passen gers were np, and we would have breakfast in 15 minutes. And then we hustled around and got dressed the best we could, laying on our backs and kicking our clotbss up in the air and catching them on ourselves when they came down, I got my pants on wrong side before, and my wife lost her hair, and had to tie a handker chief around her bead, and then we bad our berths made up and sat up till daylight, and (he porter found my wife's hair and pinned it to the cur tains of a btrlh occupied by a preach er from Osnkosh, and he kicked and got mad, and talked about it, and wondered how it came there, and he swore about it, and I think he travels for an Oshkosh carriage factory. "0,1 never had such a night or two snob nights in all my life, aud what I want to know is, if I can be quiet here, and get a little sleep, and not be annoyed." The hotel man told him if anybody came mound to bother bim, to knock them clear down stairs, and be would be respot sible, and the bridegroom 1 took his satchel and his wife, and the colored man showed them a room, and they have not ehowed up since. It is confounded mean in traveling -1 men to get snowed in and foim a syn ‘ dicale to have fun. They will cause themselves to be disliked if they keep ' on. - ■ ' ■ _ . , MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS.

Railroads vs. the People, Ex-Judge Jeremiah S. Black, in hie speech before the judiciary com mittee of the Pennsylvania Senate, Wednesday evening, on Senator Gor don’s auti-difcorimination bill, did not hesitate to declare that "there ia an irrepreeeible conflict between rail roads and their adherents on the one tide, and the rights of the people to the uee of their own public highways on the other." A perfect victory, be said, must come before the conflict ends. While bo believed the Gordon bill needed modification, he expressed himself ss strongly in favor of a bill of the general character proposed, and would have for its object the seventeenth article of the State con stitution. It had been argued that some of the railroads, having been chartered with certain piivileger, could make rates to suit themselves, but Judge Black holds that a railroad charter without a reasonable limit to chargee is void. “To say the State cannot save the people from extortion and fraud ie to utter a preposterous absurdity. By the right ot eminent domain the State always has the power to abate a monopoly. You can regulate railroads just as you can hack-drivers. Mr. Gowen says that the railroads have great power with the courts. I don't know how that is, but really they are weak and pow erless in any issue that brings theca before the people. For every mil lionaire ihey leave made a thocsir.d paupers; for every man they've done a favor to tt ey've cheated ten thous and, and these are the things that are to be remembered in a popular issue. There's nothing in the Lord's Pray* r more correct than the seven teenth article of the constitution." Refening to the influence of (roo tickets, Judge Black said that while he did not believe that any member “of this Legislature" could be influenc ed improperly by a fiee ticket, these tickets may be worth to legislators who are men of business from SIOO to SSOO a year. “Would there be any difference in principle," Judge Black asked, “if the railroads should dis tribute an equivalent in cash among the members of the Legislature ?" He advised the committee to extend the prohibition with regard to the accept ance of free passes to the judiciary, to judges of the Supreme Court, Judge Black referred to the town of York, Pa., where 100.000 tons of coal are consumed every year, as an illus tration of the workings of unjust dis crimination. In consequence of the freight consumed at York the con sumers, he said, "pay one dollar more than the coal is sold for in Baltimore. | It ought to be one dollar the other I way, so that makes the actual dis- I crimination two dollars par ton, or I $200,000 a year at that one town ; ; and this is not to keep up tho rail road companies, but to swell the co lossal fortunes of the directors. I believe that it’s worse in Philadol phia. I be'ieve that ths Reading Railroad blackmails the fovetfy and the wealth alike of the city of Phila delphia to an extent that is appalling. I can't give you the figures, but I 1 trust that Mr. Qowen will be called upon to do so. The only way to stop these outrages upon the pub'io is by a prohibition, with a penalty. Mr. Qowen and Mr. Roberts don't want logo to the penetcntiary, and they'll never go there. Pass a bill like Gordon's, and the next morning 1 every railroad man in the country will wake up just as honest a man and as good a Christian as you or I." The JPenlnitular Canal, The report of the surveys of the various routes proposed for the Ches apeake and Delaware shin-canal was submitted to Congress last Saturday, A detailed account of the surveys and borings is also given, which were made under the direct! )n of Capt. Thomas Turtle, United Slater en gineer corps. He then describes the advantages and disadvantages of the country through which the proposed various routeipaas, a slight prefer ence being given to the Choptank route, concluding as follows: “It is my opinion that the Oaoptank ronlo would still offer the least obstructions, the Back creek route next, and the Sassafras route last." It is said that Wiggim has gone to Halifax to witness his grand storm in all its fury. Now, if a nice little ' zephyr will blow the Professor half way across the Atlantic Ihe world 1 will be happy.
