Last Week but One of the Fiftieth Congress. IMPORTANT MEASURES PENDING. Some of Hie Matters to He Discussed by Hie Members of the Present Congress Before the Sesshm Closes—General Notes ft-uni the Capital. Washington, Feb. 18.—The senate has much business before it and so little time that only one or two important measures can reach the point of final action at this session. One of them may lie the pending resolution in relation to election outrages in Texas; another the census bill. The Pacific funding bill, which has been so long pending, may fail of leaching a final vote. As there is hope of its being taken up In the bouse, noth ing will he gained by pressing it to a vote in the senate. The measures which will be pushed in the senate are the bills which have passed the house, or the resolutions on which the senate alone is to take action. Under these comlitions it is hardly likely that Senator Frye will antagonise with the Union Pacific measure tho census bill which Senator Hale has given notice be will call to-day. Senator Hale expects the census bill to occupy the time of the seuate for a day more. Meantime the appropriations mitteo will report the sundry civil bill, and it will bo taken up for consideration at an early day. It is likely the committee on privilegea and elections will report Mr. Ghandier's lution to investigate I-ouisiaua election out rages. These measures ami the Texas elections resolution should keep the senate busy through tho week, although several bills of minor im portance will probably be slipped through in the intermissions. This week in the house promises to be a most lively one. To-day is likely to be frit tered away, as several members will make dilatory motions to prevent the calling up of the Pacific railroad funding bill, which is the regular order. To-morrow Mr. Mills will coll up the report on the tariff question, »nd nu extended and exciting debate, which may take several days, will probably ensue. There are two appropriation bills to be passed —the postoffice bill ami the deficiency bill— which will be called at tho earliest tunity. Severe' conference report»—notably the territorial—will be presented, and os they ire matters of the highest privilege they will take precedence over all other questions when presented. Mr. McCreary will try to call the Kdmmuls Panama canal resulutiun, anil this will undoubtedly give rise to debate, Messrs. Norwood and Russell will combat the position taken by the majority. Mr. Randall will also try to roach the Cowles bill on the calendar. This, It is feared, will meet with opposition from Mr. Mills and others, and (filibustering tactics may be resorted to to de so no •>1' or • ■•in reei » oppor up 11* GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY CENTENNIAL. The arrangements for the celebration of the founding of Georgetown university a hundred years ago are nearly completed, and all the signs point to success. Besides the gathering of the alumni from all parts of North America, the directors and presidents of other universities and colleges have signi fied their intention of attending, and the alumni of the University of Michigan have appointed Senator Palmer and Representative L'utcheon a committee to present their con gratulations, on example that may be fol lowed by other institutions. Cardinal Gib bons will arrive from Baltimore to-morrow afternoon, and the students at the college have provided that their cadet corps will meet his carriage at Washington circle and escort him with due honors to the college, where he will be welcomed by the faculty and students with appropriate addresses.

Friday lemg Washington's birthday will be filled in the morning by class reunions, rooms being assigned as headquarters to the various classes represent««! At 3 o'clock in the afternoon the special academic session will be held, when it is ex pected that the president, his cabinet, and other noted persons will attend, and honor ary degrees will be conferred, and the ceuteu uary will close. « DEMOCRATIC TARIFF CAUCUS. The Democratic caucus called for to-night is for the purpose of considering the several internal revedus measures now before the house. The call was prepared by the Mills men and generally circulated on Saturday. Mr. Kuudall, Mr. Gowlee and other Demo crats who favor the repeal of the tobacco tax refused to sign it. They will, however, go into caucus, but Mr. Cowles declares that neither he nor other southern Democrats will be bound by it in case the caucus wants to thrust upon them some bill reported from the ways and means committee. "The time for caucuses on revenue bills," says Mr. Cowles, "is past. We of the south," he said, "wont some practical results, and none of the bills repirted from the ways ami means committee can even pass the house, uot to speak bf the senate.'' His own bill, ho says, con pass both houses, and sbomd become a law this con gress. THE PRESIDENT NOT AT HOME TO CALLERS. The following notice has been issued from the executive mansion : "The president announces that to enable him to dispose of pending business requiring his personal attention before the close of his term of office, it will be on absolute necessity that he have this week for such work free from interruptions, mid he must therefore be excused to all callers. " The usual receptions on Mondays, Wednes days and Fridays at 1.30 will be continued. A Salvationist Warrior Departs. Pittsfield, Mass., Feb. 18.—"Gen." Lute, formerly of the Salvation Army, who is tenions in connection with tho opium joint recently discovered here, was to have lieen tried Saturday, but he has left town, and his whereabouts are unknown. "Gen." Lute was well known in New York, where his record was anything but savory. Denouncing the Government. Pesth. Feb. 18.—Thirty thousand people paraded the streets in procession yesterday and afterward.-- assembled at an anti-govern ment meeting, where speeches denouncing the government were delivered from several stands. M Idle past ng the palace the crowd made an earnest demonstration of loyalty. a. bl ■ PLUNGED THROUGH THE ICE. A Printer's Apprentice Makes n Plucky nt Norwich, Conn. Norwich, Conn., Feb. 18.—Four young Norwich men had a thrilling experience yesterday afternoon In the chilly waters of the Thames. A man mulled O'Neil, who lives on the west side, wanted to reach his home, directly across the river from the dock where the propeller Delaware is tied up, without taking the usual circuitous route. The ice in the river was apparently safe, and O'Neil stepped confidently upon the slippery surface. When about twenty feet from shore there was n craek, a splosh, and nothing but bubbles and broken ice remained to tell the story. Arthur Upham, the well known prize lighter, sueeeedud In reaching tile drowning man, but before he could rescue him the ice broke, and he, too, followed. George Ham ilton, a teamster, next braved the treacher ous expans«». When ho secured a grip on Upham, who in turn was supporting the limp form of O'Neil, another section of ice gave way, and the toamstor joined the other two. Then young Tommy Bharvin, an apprentice in the comp «tag room of The Bulletin, who, although scarcely in his teens, has already saved half a dosen people from drowning, rush«! to tile rescue and was precipitated into the water. The current ran strong, and threatened to drift the whole party under the ice. Supporting the now lifeless O'Ned, the other three |>addl«d obliquely for the shore, breaking the rotten ice with their hands, anil finally landed, nearly exhausted, upon Central wharf. O'Neil was resuscitated and taken home. 11 «—. WHITE CAPS IN ORANGE COUNTY. They Succeed In Inilueliig Young Men to Stay Home Nights. Nbwburo, N. Y., Feb. 18.—White Caps continue to send out warning letters In this vicinity, and yesterday a simple mimleil German at West Newburg was cautioned by letter to drink leas rum and )«y mure atten tion tei the support of his family. Home of Goshen's lively young men are in a fever because they are not allowed to go out o' nights. Sundry missives from the White Caps have dampened their ardor con siderably. and many familiar fare* are missed from the streets after it p, in. These fellows have teen ordered to remain at home nights, and they apjiear inclined to obey. Several citizens of Colli Spring have been threatened with dire calamity in case certain conditions ore not fulfilled. The letters from "White Caps" received there are in the typi cal style, ornamented with skull ami cross bones, and are calculated to freeze the blood in tho veins of those receiving them. Promi nent citizens of Gold Spring have banded to gether in conjunction with the individuals receiving the notices to give the White Gaps a warm reception sh«mld they attempt to carry out any of their diabolical threats. At Middletown there is also a similar state of affairs, Mr. Morgan, the Mt, Hope (Orange county) man who suddenly left his home last Wednes day night, after being chased by three mounted men, has not yet lieen hoard from. Morgan disappeareil after taking several frightened him away or killed him are sup posed to be White Gaps, whom Mt. Hope people would like to see wearing "black caps." A Race War Threatened. Atlanta, Oa., Feb. 18.—North Carolina is on the verge of a terrible race war, growing out of the negro exodus. All railroad emi grant agents have lieen driven out of the state. The local military companies have lieen called out in Wayne county to aid the fanners in preventing desertion of their labor ers. The whites have asked the legislature for a law covering tho case, and the blacks have retaliated by calling public me«>tings, nt which resolutions are adoptes! declaring that their treatment by the whites makes life in the state unbearable. The resolutions adopt*«! at a monster meeting in Goldsboro contained this clause, "God is at the head of this move, and not the Richmond and Danville Railroad company. The voice of John Brown is sounding in the ears of the sons of Ham and the great southwest says, 'Come, we have lands,' and the oppressed conscience of tho negro says, 'Go,' and we are going." A gentle man who has just reached Atlanta says that an outbreak may be expected at any iu> uncut. Both whites and blacks are heavily, arme«! Governor Beales has issued secret orders to the state militia to get ready to quell jKissilile outbreaks. The North Carolina newspapers conceal the critical nature of the situation. Four Unlucky .Furies. Bedford, Pb., Feb, 18.—At tho session of the Bedford county court on Tuesday last the case of the commonwealth against John Owler came up tor trial. A jury was selected and sworn. One witness wa« examiueil, when William Jack, one of the jury, received a telegram informing him that his father was dead. The juror was excused and the jury discharged. On Wednemlay morning a sec ond jury was drawn to try the ease* Two witnesses had been examined, when George Roy, one of the jurors, received wor«l by tele graph that bis wile had died suddenly. He was excused and that jury discharged. A third jury was selected, and William Fry, one of tho jury, on leaving the court house after the adjournment for tho day, fell and broke bis leg. That made the drawing of a fourth jury necessary. This one distinguished itself through Jamee Black, one of its mem lid's, fainting during the examination of a witness, but he recovered in half an hour, and the case was finished. The prisoner was acquitted. _ Henna's Chances Gone. Parkersburg, W. Va., Feb. 18.—Senator John E. Keuna's chances of re-election are gone. On Thumlay night Mr. Keuna prom ised to get out of the way at tho end of the week, and to-day it is the expectation here that ex-8enator Johnson N. Gamdeu's name will be formally presented. The Democrats here are very bitter against Koima tor stand ing out so long when it was evident that he could not be elected from the firet. There is no one who thinks that Gen. Goff has any chance of election, but it is now believe«! that to-day or to-morrow will see Camden, or pos sibly Fleming, the lucky man. A Famous Old Chun k. Norwich, Gönn., Feb. la— The First Con gregational Church of Woodstock, one of the oldest societies in this country, having been organized in 1«M0, yesterday rededicated it* historic structure.

New York, Feb. 18.—There WORE "STRAIGHT TIPS. The New Cabinet as Arranged in Washington. NEW YORK STATE GETS A PLACE. That Is. If the Wiseacres of the National 1'apltal Are Correct—Hut There I« lame Doubt Impressed us to the Hellabllity of Tills Slate. Washington, Feb. IS.—The political wise acres in Washington who «iaim to have "a deoil straight Up," fix up Priai dent Harri son's cabinet in ataut this order: Blaine, of Maine, state. Wlndom, of Minnesota, treasury. Husk, of Wisconsin, war, Platt, of New York, navy. Foster, of Ohio, interior. John Baxter, of Tennessee, son of Judge Baxter, of the state supreme court, attorney general. Palmer, of Michigan, agriculture. Wanamoker, of Pennsylvania, poKtofflce. There are many m«<n of national reputation in Washington, mtist of them senators or members of the house, who do not put im plicit confidence in the statement from In illana|x>fis that ex-Henator Windom will lie secretary of the treasury. A majority of m«>n in congre*» who express an opinion eon tend that Co!. John C. Now will be secretary of tho treasury, and that he would not have made his recent trip to New York with im portant messages from Oon. Harrison hail not he lieen slat») for a plains in the cabinet. He would take no other place than the treas ury. It Mr. Windom should go info the cabinet it will be regarded hero as a Blaine a; point ment, for it is well known that Messrs. Win dom and Blaine are intimate (sirsonal frlemls, and that the former woulil be the latter'» first choice for the treasury portfolio, The statement that Co! New tor (Jen. Harrison tendered to Mr. Platt the navy portfolio is given credence by those who know the warm personal relations existing between these men. Co! New has hail a very high |sirsuual re gard for Mr, Platt for many years, they hav ing been the must ardent friends of Gen. Grant and Senator Conkllng. and it is no cret that Go! New has all along advocated the giving of a place to his friend, ex-8enator Platt. It Is taken as a fact in Washington that Mr. Platt would accept only one of the three positions, the treasury, tho navy or the post office. It ha* l»>en stut.«l repeatedly that the treasury would go to the west, and there can be no noubl that it will. It is not believed to be wisdom to give the navy isirtfofiu to Mr. Wanamaker on aC'imnt of the ship building interest* in Pennsylvania and the embarrassment» which wouli) come to hhu if he were secretary of tho navy. The natural logic turns the postofflee department over to Mr. Wanamaker, since that position is to go to the east. This leaves only the navy for Mr. Platt The Wisconsin delegation is authority for the statement that Governor Rusk Is to lie secretary of war. A correspondent cannot make public his authority for stating Senator Palmer, of Michigan, is lielieved to he slated for sei-retary of agriculture. It is doubtful whether the attorney gen eralship will go to TonnoHsoe, as »tatod, unless Oon. Harrison is determined te) give the south a place in his cabinet The Nebraska delegation is yet confident that Judge John M. Thurston Is in Gen. Harrison's mind for secretary of the interior. It is not hnprolialile tliat the attorney general ship may go to New York, the secretaryship of the inferior to Thurston, of Nebraska, and that the name of Co! New may tasutatituted for that of Mr. Windom for the treasury. Heuator Mauderson left fluidity Saturday night for his homo in Nebraska, and it is states! that en route he will stop at Imliaim I»Uis and urge the appointment of Judge Thurston for the interior. Senator Manderson is a very wann per sonal friend of Gen. Harrison, and he is ter ribly in earnest about Judge Thurston's ap pointment. The Indiana Republicans hero who know Co! New lie*! argue that he did more to bring about G«in. Harris«in's nomina tion and certainly as much as any man to »■cure his election; that he is eminently fitted for the treasury; that he is the first choice of Imliana; that the state must liave In the cabinet who is ca|iable and who will ho willing to take «-barge of tho distribution of the offices, ami that although ho has stated to Gen. Harrison that he is not an aspirant to political honors, he would accept the place if he were requested to do so. Indianapolis, Feb. 18.—There is very little satisfaction expresse«! höre ovor what will probably be tta personnel of the Harrtscn cabinet, h is now accepted that Biaiu* Windom, Wanamaker, Miller of Indiana, Noble of Missouri, Tuuums of Illinois, Rusk of Wisconsin, and Mdler of Now York, are to be the new president's advisers. Objec tions are strongly expressed in regard to W indem, Noble's initials are J. W., but neither this« letters nor his surname appeared on any hotel register when he slipped into the city, and drove immeiUately thereafter to Gen. Harri son's residence, which he did uot leave until he took the train for the west at noon. 81 is presence in the city was not discovered until late at night He is boozed, it is thought, fur the interior. Yesterday there were no visitors of note, the general, aside from the calls of iutunute friends, having the day to himself. He wont to church as usual, and then spent the after noon at the home of his law partner, Miller, who is his prospective attorney genera!

IN. — The Sun to-day prints a long .wpateh from Washington, giving a retrospect of Secretary Bayard's course «luring tl««> i«a«t four year» with re gard to the nttni ks that have lieen made upon him. Mr. Bayard states that ho grots the course which party opponents have se«>n lit to pursue proceed not from any pep sonal ftvling of resentment or annoyance, but from disu|i|n>intmont that men «decte«! by the people to protect and advance their interests should bo pa un m indful of tho res)wnsihilttim, so lacking in patrie .hm,,. that for the sake of mere party or personal ad Tantege tliey have not hesitate«! to avail them selves of »'Try opportunity to hanqstr and embarrass him, Ignoring the fact that it was their duty to treat him not as an individual, but ns a public servant charged with an im portant public trust, the performance of which they should have facilitated by every means in their power. Commenting upon the charges that he hail no ]«>licy ami lacked courage, Mr. Bayard lie lieves ti e American people have a higher and nobler destiny than to swagger aliout among the nation» of the earth daring somebndy to knock a chip off their shoulder.

Requisi tions were obtained by District Attorney V.dlows from Governor Hill, and on these re positions warrante were issued by Governor Luce Fell. 1. The trouble has been since that it took time to get Howard into Michigan. Ho was staying nt Windsor, and would not cross the river. Mrs. Friend returne«! to h«»r home at Milan Friday. She had been traced within rea« - h of the warrants several times, lint was not arrested tiecause they could not get Howard. On Saturday Howard, believ ing that no criminal notion could he com meucfld and Ilial he coulil defend civil suits, returned to Milan, ami the arrest of the en tire gang followed Detectives Reed ami Kulnnd, of inspector Byrne*' force, were telegraphed for, and will arrive to lake them to New York for trial. The prisoners were visited at the county Jail and Interviewed by a reporter, Mr. and Mrs. William E. Howard were in a private bednsim on t he second floor, not confined in the jail proper, but being guarded by the sheriff and his deputies. Mr. Howard is suf fering from nervous prostration. Howard said In rospoUHe to question* that the one thing that lie wimteil to have done was to have a complete ami unqualified state ment of bis shle of the case. He had tried to get the consent of his attorneys, but they hes itate»! atiunt the matter; even now be would give a ing them. He ilenounceil the arrest as with out warrant. Ho was not interest*«! in the cutiqiaiiy, anil never belli any of the stock except once, some five or six years ago, whom five shares of the stock of the old company were given to him, so that he might vote for Brui essor Friend for some office, ami which he afterward returned to tile company, and they (nid him $500. He ha«i never held a dollar's worth of stock in the new company. At the time of Friend's death and prior be he w as employed by the ounqiany in superin teniling tho building of the mm-hinery. Alter Frieud's «ieath Gutter ill ami Robinson i-arne to him and Induced him to remain and finish the work. He was paid 850 a week for several months and afterward raised to 800. He was promised something good, and wits to have #.5,0.10 when tile first demonstration was ■mule, 830,000 inure within a month and 825, 000 within six months. In his capacity as superintendent money was pai l to him to |>ay for machinery and ui cessory articles fur running the business. Neither GotteriU nor any of the stockholders ever hupiireil what this money was paid for an«l never were to ask the question, as the contract provided that they should not ask or alt nipt to find out any of the secrets of the concern. He saiil Unit it was charged that lieiiiiil Mrs. Friend hail ohtaineil 8180,000 or more from the c«m|iany, and had claimed to huve used it in buying machinery ami pre paring the building for me. This was nut so; they hail never received, all told, from the company more than €30,000, mid every dollar of this had lieen um« I for the purjiose for which it was obtained. The machinery was expensive and complicated, and for maintain ing secrecy each part was made at different places. This mode it cunt more. All the employes about tho factory were sworn to secrecy, signing an agreement to that effect, and were paiii good wages on this »«•*■» nut. Howard was to liave received 85,000 ou lus contract after the last demonstration, but when finished tin» treasurer hail said they hail but 82,500, and he only palil him that amount, still owing him under his contract 82,500. This sum, aside from his wages, was the only money that was ever paid to him by the company. He charges that while there might been some chicanery about the business GotteriU und Robinson were the bead of the »windle, and it was worked for their benefit He says the whole scheme was originated by GotteriU and Professor Friend for the purpose of swtnrUing. Barrels and barrels of row sugar would be sent to tho factory by GotteriU and Robinson, hut every particle of that article that was sent to the factory is «tili there or was at tho time he left the factory. Nut one pound had ever been used, nor was it ever claimed by him that any of it was used. It could easily have been dumped off the wharf bad there been any purpose on his part to defraud the company. He stiU claims that there is a secret process connected with the refining that was not dis covered when the factory was broken into. Tho secret is only known to Mrs. Friend, and the prtweut procedure is denounced by How ard as a bluff to extort this secret from her. Mrs. Friend is of meiliiiiu height and very fleshy, weighing over 3UÜ pounds. She suf fers greatly from dro|«y and heart troubles. She is a pleasant talker, but had little to say the arrest. She thought, like Howard, that it was a scheme to secure the secret for mula. but said it would not work. Nhs said : "1 am not a particle afraid of the present asfiect of the case, although I was greatly surprised at being arrested. 1 have been at my home in Milan for the past four weeks, all that time within reach of the warrant and could easily have left the country, but I have done nothing criminal and have hot even received what my contract calls for. Since ray husband dieu 1 have not received a single dollar from the company, except on. allowance of 8100 a mouth. • : I i Terrible Domestic Tragedy.
