Washington, March 26 Everv one seems to think that the caucus last night was fruitful of but one point the dis- fttpsure of the fact that tbe tariff is a ocal issue, and the members propose to --nirir U ao in all their acti ons. Even those who were inclined to follow Mor-i rison spoke and voted in the caucus witb this mental reservation : "If my constituents want me to oppose it when jt cornea up flnaMy (Or passage I shall do so," end it appears that none but Speaker Carlisle attempted to disabuse their minds'. Carlisle's speech is ae vere'y criticised by some. Eiton, of Connecticut, said to me this morning : HI will not be read out of tbe party by such men as Carlisle, and no speech that be can make will phase me. I think he overstepped the point be intended to make and did bis cause injury. There are not enough Csrtisles In the party to read me out of it, because, aircply, I re fuse to vote lor their hobby.' ' It seems that Carlisle's speech was intended to act aa a shoe driving process. It was vigorous an ' somewhat on the order, ot Watterson's pronunciamento declaring that if the party was a Democratic party it w uld fulfill its p'edgea and revise the tariff at once It is clesr that the Ro da! 1 men won a vic'ory. They are in excellent spirits, but are loth to abow that they really believe they have won a clear victory. Representative Ermen tront, of Pennsylvania, one f Randall's most shrewd and solid followeis, said : "The Morrison men have pulled ou chestnuts out of the fire and now we will eat them or not. They have conceded that we shall support tbe hill or not, giving ns all the latitude we want." ' Will the bill finally pass the House?" I asked "I can't say' replied Erm9n'ront, "be cause I don't know bow much It may be amended It may be ao amended that even tbe Morrison men will not support It. You see, no one is pledged to watt for tbe bill. We are to past a bill." Morrison says that he never said that any one who would not support his bill would be read out of the party and that those who quoted him as saying ao spoke falsely. Mr. Converse, of Ohio, said Jo-day : "The cat'cua demon-trated beyond any doubt that tbe tariff bill can jtot be passed by this house. We hBVe not profiled by it unless possibly it is in showing that there is a dele'minatioti to defeat all such measures as tbat Mor riaon proposes." The Ghost Which Ohio Peoplo Turn Out to Sec.

Ia so vastly superior to any otner sarsa partlla or blood purifier, that one ba well said: "Its health-gividg effects upon the blood and entire human organism, arc as much more positive than the remedies ot a quarter of a century ago, as the steam power of to-day is in advance of the alow and laborious drudgery of years ago." "While suffering from a severe bilious attack in March, 1883, a friend in Peoria, HI., recommended Hood's Sarsaparilla. 1 tried the remedy, aud was permanently cured." J. A. Srepard, travelling agent for Devoe & Co., Fulton Street, N. Y. VI was for five years a sufferer With bolls, all run down, and was at one time obliged to give up work. Before taking all of two bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla, was entirely cured." B. M. Lase, Pittsburgh, Pa.

A Gun Which is Calculated to Smash the Thunderer at First Fire. New York Sun. A machine-tbat looked like a 40 foot brass pipe mounted on a steel girder such aa lie on the. elevated railroad pil lars, rested on the centre of the machine shop of the Delamater Iron Works yes terday. Tbe machine is the barrel and carriage of the new four-inch dynamite pneumatic gun, which, when completed, is. expected to sink, on occasion, tbe lar gest man-of-war atloat and annihilate its crew. The gun is constructed of brass and steel, fitted in the most iccurate manner at tbe Joints, and capable ot sus taining a pressure of 1,000 pounds to the square inch. It weighs but a ton, and may be carried by a small gunboat The projectile is nothin more or less i than a dynamite cartridge encased in soft metai within a shell of brass and fitted with a wooden tail. It weighs about 100 pounds. The soft metal filling protects the dy namite from ordinary accidents. But when the projectile, flying at speed, strikes, bead on, against a resisting sur face, a nard metal pin ' imbedded, in the soft metal and not touching the dyna mite, is forced into the fulminate at the head of the cartridge and discharges the dynamite In order tbat wind currents may not interfere in the precision of the firing, the. centre of eravity is near the forward end of tbe projectile. The wooden tail acts as a rudder, the wind veering the tail around and throwing the head into the wind in proportion to the strength of tbe current, thus maintaining an ab solutely straight course. Tbe gun is constructed with a power ful air chamber capable of storing an immense force of compressed air. Th gunner sights with telescope sights with n air lines, and with the pressure of a finger discharges the compressed air into the barrel, and starts the projectile on its flight. The great length of the tube is required to econonrze all the force o' tbe air, which is Ies8 rapid In its action than gunpowder. "This gun," said Mr. Hfhsdale, Whc is superintending the construction, "will throw the cartridge three miles with a precision never attained with gunpow der.. An ordinary, projectile loaea pow er with each yard it travels with tbe gun This cartridge arrives ready for busi ness, no matter how far it goes." "Suppose a cartridge landed orj the deck of tbe Tuunderor, what would happen ?" "Tbe vessel would b shattered and sunk by tbe explosion, and every living being upon the deck would be blown to atoms. Whether any o;te below the deck would live to drown in the sinking ves sel I cannot state." "Suppose a shot from tbe enemy s'ruck tbe launch carrying the dynamite cartridge!"' "Well, tbe boat might be sunk by tbe shot, but unless a cartridge was struck so as to explode tbe fulminate tbe dyna mite would not explode. The Govern ment is experimenting st Fort Hamilton with a 2 inch gun, and some wonderful execution has been done. The guns may be manu'actured in any well equip ped machine shop, and cost hut a song in comparison with the enormous guns turned out bv Krupp and Woolwich, Tbe same principle is applicable to field guns to be used in land engagements. A few dynamite cartridges exploded in a brigade would have the effect of pow der mill explosion upon the troops." Democratic Congressional Conven tion.

San Francisco Marsh 27 Shortly be fore five o'clook in the morning his city was visited by the heaviest earthquake known here since 1868. It lasted fully twenty seconds, and ooourring at the hour it did, cauzht people napping. People rushed from their hodes wild uh excitement. Before the firs' Shook had spent itx forco tbe stree s were filled wi h hundreds of half dressed, fright ened, a d nearly erased men, women and children. In the Chinese quarter the scene baffljd description. The Mongo lians, however, appeared m full dress compared with the whi e people. Ia that portion of tbe cry where the shock was the heaviest, the Chinese seldom un dressed. Along the Water some fifty houses built on made ground are in par tial ruins. No loss of life has as yet been reported. A second and ligh or shock occurred at twenty minutes past fire and was followed at half-past tve by a still lighter one and rumblings are heard continually. Bis Very Latest. N. Y. Snn. The olassic shades of Fostotia were in vaded on 8a'urday by an interviewing re porter, who dragged from the reluctant lips of Hon. Charley Foster the following confession : "The people of Ohio are in favor of Blaine as first choice. Sena'or Sherman also could unquestionably carry Ohio. I think tba if Sherman, by ike votes of the deleea-es fro:u other S'A-es. ts shown to be an available candidate, the Ohio dtlegvloa would oast their vote for him." Mr. Foster's opinion on the Value of John Sherman's Presidential chanoet it par ioularly inferos ing. for it is the opin ion of an expert, it may be remembered that Fos'er dabbled is Sherman ttooka just four years ago this spring.
