TO FEEL THE rULSE."
i. Avenue Scheme Made Public. A Delaware To Widen the Driveway Ten Feet. De stroy the Shade Trees and Make the Parements Narrower- Resident* Indlg nant. The Board of Street and Sewer Com misslouers have raised a storm of Indig nation by expressing a purpose of widen ing the road bed of Delaware avenue from Tatnall to Union street«, ten feet, by taking five feet from the pavement on each side. JTo do this it would be neces sary to uproot tbe outer row of handsome shade trees. This expression of purpose was simply made to feel the palss of the people, and by this time It has beau found to bs very feverish, especially where the word "people" applies to those living on the avenue. THE MEETING LAST NIGHT. The commissioners met Isst night and formally inaugurated the matter in con nection with the proposed improvements to the avenue under the f.'>00,000 borrow ing act. First, It was decided to begin tbe work of improving the avenue on tbe first of May. The Ideas of the commissioners then became centered upon the widening of the avenue between toe punt» above d< s ignated. The propo-itlon met with unanimous approval Tbe estimated cost was placed at $50,000 exclu sive of the $25,000 which the street railway company will expend In putting new rails and other improve meute Tho commissioners wants drive each side of the street, paved way on with fire brick, and the street oar com pany will foot part of tbe cost. Delaware avenue is 70 feet from one From one The building line to the other, curb to tbe other la only 84} feet, distance space from one curb to tbe track is only 10 feet. Market and King streets have a build ing line width of 65) feet and a curb-line width of 40 feet. This ia 6) feet greater than on Delaware avenue, proposed the driveway on each side of the track will be fifteen feet wide. By the plan BRADE TREES SACRIFICED. One of the most deplorable features of the Innovstioo will be the destruction of the outer row of shade trees on each side of this popular promenade, and that seems to be the feature against which there is so mach railing The change would leave the pavements as wide as those on Market street, but tbe beautiful effect of tbe two evergreen arches on each side would be destroyed. It Is now a question between beauty sud a good drive and perfect grade. A FEW OPINIONS EXPRESSED. This morning Commissioner Joseph L. Carpenter was Interviewed He said ; "It has not been decided upon, but it the sense of the board. We simply did it to get tbe sense of the people. There have been a number of persons opposed to it here to see me this morning." "How do the Delaware avenue people stand?" "Ob, they are opposed to it, so far as know," City Auditor BHUiny—"l think it an ontrage. Tbe trees are what beautify the avenue. I should think the papers should denounce it. There is more walking on the avenue than there driving. Wide pavements are what we want. 3lty Treasurer Adams—"I think the money conld be spent mach more advan tageously." City Tax Collector Mitchtll— "It would make a nice thoroughfare, bat I would rather see Tenth street widened from to Market. Have tho people who planted these utm no rights?" Councilman Ceiton — ■■m,, would be a most excellent one. gratified that they do It. My impression is that is the thoroughfare to the north west part of the city, and taken In connection with Pennsylvania avenue and the park, it ia tbe most important avenue in this city. Tbe trees are too thick in many places, especially along the cemetery." Clerk of thff Orphans' Court McWhor tei—"I think it is an outrage upon the citizens They should get out an injunc tion. Why don't they buy Delaware avenne Baptist Church and open and widen Tenth street to Market?" Frances Hoffeeker—"I should hate to s e tbe shade trees destroyed, bnt the public generally would be benefited." Deputy Attorney General Davis—"I am not in favor of it. It is unnecessary ex travagance. They should widen Tenth from Tatnail to Market street. Theprppo sltion would destroy the beauty of the avenue " George Q. Brown—"My impression that it would be a good thing, uot thongbt mach about it." Philip Q. Churchman—"It would spoil the walk and cut off the trees. There more walking than driving avenue." William Michael Byrne—"I think would be a very good thing, owing to the improvements to transportation. There should be more room for driveway».'' OTHER BUSINESS DONE The other business done by the board last night was unimportant in Its char acter. A petition in relation to the opening of Eleventh street from Madison to Adams street and Trenton Place and Monroe through to Eleventh, was read and referred to Connoil.

Their Claims lor Damage* About to II« Adjudicated By Swiss Courts, A despatch from Berne, Switzerland, to the New York Herald yesterday, said: •'Th« claims for damages of several American tourists who were illegally ar reateo in the summer of 1889, at a rail way at» Mon here, on suspicion of being p'ckpoc. eta. are about to be adjudicated. Tbe unf rtuuate travelers, after being confined <n cells for two days, I during which time they were forced to .<»t tbe miserable food supplied or go hungry were liberated without an explanation being offered. Mr. Washburn.-, then United States Minister to Switzerland, entered a vigor ous protest against the high handed pro ceedings of tbe authorities in tbe matter, and claims for heavy damages were made. After a long delay Judge Hafner Is finlsb He is ex decision in log the taking of evidence, pec ed to announce bis April." _ This despatch refers to E. E. Hanf. P. L Baker and C. E Griffith of this city, and 0. E. Coates of Baltimore, and Z D. Manford, Now York city, who, on August 8. 1889, were arrested on the platform of the railway station at Berne. They were quietly waiting for a train to take them to Interlaken. They were kept in custody until August 13. They all had passports, but these were not deemed evidence of their Identity. Tbe Department of Justice deeply de plored the arrests and offered many apol ogies. It also admitted that reasonable damages might be granted If a complaint were addressed to the Court of Appeals for the canton of Berne. One of the excuses made was that It was a peculiarity of the Swiss constitu tion that tbe central government had no control over tbe portionier acts of the cantonal author) -les. Off for Conference.

THE PRESIDENT TO REMAIN FIRM. lie Preparn it Kliarp ReN|Min»r to bury ami 1« Backed I p by the Cabinet in HI* Determination Not to Km-tMlr from the Stand Ile II ma Taken. Washington, March St.—It is understood that both Lord Salisbury'» reply to the note of tbe 8th, and tho president's response thereto, were before the cabinet for informa tion and consideration. Salisbury's reply was found to be quite unsatisfactory, and unanimous approval was given to the re sponse prepared by the president. The lat ter is said to be an emphatic declaration of the intention of the United States to main tain the contention put forth in the corre spondence on the subject, which has boon made public. There is in it no withdrawal from the position heretofore assumed in the controversy, and no assent is made to any proposition rejieated by Lord Salisbury which had been previously rejected. The reply of Lord Salisbury and the presi dent's response will, it is said, be communi cated to the senate committee on foreign relations this afternoon. A Proposition Once Rejected. It is still an open question what action the senate will take regarding tbe arbitration treaty, There is some division of sentiment about it. Certain of the senators favor rati fying the treaty without regard to a modus vivendi, while others think it ought to be rejected unless Lord Salisbury expressly agrees to another closed season. It is not likely that the treaty may be amended by tbe addition of a clause providing for a modus vivendi, and in this form returned to the British premier. Final action on it is not likely to be delayed many days. Prior to the cabinet meeting Acting Sec retary Wharton, accompanied by Sir George Baden Powell, one of the British members of the commission recently in session here, called at tbe executive mansion and bad an interview with the president. It was learned that Sir George bod come to Washington simply to bid adieu to the officials with whom be came in contact during tbe ses sions of the commission. He sailed for Eu rope today. A rumor that finds many believers is that Lord Salisbury has answered the president's note insisting on the necessity of a modus vivendi with a counter proposition that in any modus vivendi agreed upon the United States Shall engage to indemnify Canadian vessel owners (poachers) for losses incurred thereby, provided the arbitrators finally de cide that the United States has no right to prevent pelagic sealing. The United States has already rejected a proposition of this kind. Phelps in Consultation. The treasury department has delayed the preparation of instructions to revenue cut ters pending the Behring sea negotiations. Last year the instructions originally sent out had to be countermanded by telegraph, as the situation changed after they were de livered in San Francisco. The treasury of ficials mean to wait this year, if possible, until tbe situation is finally determined. Mr. Phelps, who was United States min ister to England the Cleveland ad ister to England during the Cleveland ad ministration, and who is now one of the government counsel in the Behring sea case, visited the Capitol. He had a long consul tation with Senator Sherman, chairman of the committee on foreign affaire, and Sena tor Morgan, one of the Democratic members of the committee. Mr. Phelps met with an accident some time ago resulting in tbe fracture of one of tbe small bones in his left arm, and now carries his arm in a black silk sling. It is understood he went over tbe Behring sea treaty with Senators Sherman and Morgan, but none of the participants in the confer ence could be induced to reveal what took place. Salisbury Couldn't Comply. London, March 33.— In official circles great reticence is maintained respecting tho tenor of Lord Salisbury's reply to Mr. Blaine's request (or a renewal of the modun vivendi, bnt it is generally urged that Lord Salisbury could not comply with the re quest without implying an admission of the United States' demand to exercise juris diction in Behring sea, and without utterly ignoring the request of the British commis sioner*. who declare that there is no single case where permanent injury has been done any habite of seals through sailing in the open sea.

The jury inspected the house at Windsor that had been occupied by the Deemiugs, and the inquest was then ad journed until April 5 to await the arrival of Deeming, who is now in custody at Perth. The authorities have been very careful to keep from the prisoner «11 knowledge of the discovery of the bodies of his supposed first wife and her four children at KainhiU, near Liverjiool, full particulars of which have been cabled here, and much interest is mani fested as to what Deeming'» behavior will bo when he is informed that the police of this country and England have conclusive evidence of the long series of crimes com mitted by him. It is alleged that Deeming was engaged in land swindling operations in Canada in 1384, and that he afterward became a watch dealer and decamped with a num ber of watches entrusted to him by settler*. The discoveries at Perth include a long knife os sharp as a razor, with a bloody handle. The police have secured a letter written by Deeming, which, it is said, con tains ample proof that he tried to entice a Miss Roursevell, a young woman of Sydney, into a marriage with him after he bad mur dered his wife in Windsor, for which crime he is now under arrest and which led to the terrible revelations at Baiubill. in England. He Tofted an Lord Dm Antwkrp, March JR.—It has been discov ered by the authorities hero that Deeming the wife murderer, visited this city on two different occasions. He was known as Lord Dunn.

Another Sensation Promised in the Chi cago Doodling Investigation. Chicago, March 23.— Another sensation is promised in tbe lioodle investigation. No new indictments have been returned and there are indications that the good work has been blocked by dangerous leaks. The state's attorney seems to be alarmed. "There are three men on the grand jury who I have every reason to believe have been tale bear ing, informing interested outsiders of the proceedings of this boodle investigation," said Mr. txingenecker. "There is the best of ground, 1 think, for this belief," he con tinued. "We have not os yet one particle of evidence to implicate the men who put up the money for the passage of the boodle ordinances and with which this public rob bery was done. "Now, I am confident that the men back of the boodlers have a full report of all the evidence that has been presented to the grand jury. What has not been given to the grand jury, which is but very little in deed, they are not acquainted with. With the indictment of Billy O'Brien wo have come to an end, unleee he 'squeals' or we can find evidence elsewhere which we have not now got. We wilt keep on working and it is possible we may strike a lead that may produce good results. "If we do not I can see no hope of catch ing and indicting the chief bribers. Whether we will be able to touch the men whom we believe to be the most guilty must be de cided by future events.'' . by . The Famous "Grange'' Sold. Nxw York.

It Quia Paul and Poisonous linlass It Is Kept Constantly Plowing At this season of the year people feel more or lee* weak, run down, wearied and de ll. hae been commonly enupoeed that it is due to Impurttlea of the blood, and that only by purifying the blood, e in good health be secured. Is this true? Let ns nee. The blood get« Impure hecanse It la sluggish. How doe* a hi ream get Impure, with grec» neimi and poteens on the top? Simply be doeen't run A ranking stream Is not Impure, but a stagnant, or sluggish stream always Is. If, therefore, yon would keep your blood pure, keep It mov ing, keep It throbbing. .Thu moment It begins be sluggish. It wlllbegln to lie Impure, and you will feel the effects In tired, weak feel ings, depressed emotions, and a thousand and one troubles which always follow 'the proper way to keep the blood stirring Is by ths use of a pure stimulant In moderation. (Stimulate It gently, and It will keep In cou etaut. healthy motion, and good health will follow. There Is but one wav In which tbie can be don.e and that Is by tbe nse purest and best stimulant you can find, preferably whiskey. and there Is but one absolutely pure, medicinal whiskey known lx tbe world, and that Is Duffy's Pure Malt. Scientists admit thls.the doctors, all confirm it. It Is m ire generally used to day than any other whiskey which the world has ever seen, and It Is popular only through Its merit. Do not let any drug gist or grocer deceive you by saying they have something "Just as good," something they can recommend, etc When any dealer says this, he has an Interested motive, which usually is, to sell you something Inferior, on which he can make i Do not lie so deceived. «HUMA H in of the cheap ami more money tniMSKNTt.
