IN THE HOUSE
Hsrtman of ."lontana Relieves the rionotony
of the Wrangling
Washinc.ton, March f>.—The house to
day wrangled about fouir hours over the
salaries of United States marshals and the
other features of the amendment to the
legislative appropriation ball to abolish the
fee system in the cases of United States at
torneys and marshals. Interest in the de
bate, however, was completely overshad
owed by a sensational att wk made upon
President Cleveland by Mr. Hartman, Re
publican, of Montana, who felt himßelf
personally aggrieved by Mr. Cleveland's
utterances at the Presbyterian 'home mis
sion meeting in New York on Ttiasday.and
who seized the opportunity allow ed by the
latitude of debate on apptopri.it.ion bills to
repel the idea that the western states were
the home of evil influences.
Mr. Hartman sent to the clerk's desk
and had read the following extracts from
Mr. Cleveland's address:
"The toleration of evils and indifference
to Christianizing and elevatini r influences
in the states in the west, t rhieh, if un
checked, develops into badly regulated
municipalities, corrupt and tint nfe territo
tories and undesirable states."
"Whatever may be my individual opinion
•f the president," said Mr. Hart man, "mat
ters not. It would not be prop »r for me to
state it here. For the high oiEce of the
president of tbe United States 1' have a su
preme regard. The legitimate functions
of that office are limited to those enumer
ated in our constitution. Uniler the con
stitution and laws I deny the rviht of the
chief executive to willfully and wantonly,
in public address or otherwise, insult any
of the citizens or any state of tl 10 republic
over whom he has been called to preside.
I deny the constitutional authority of the
president to give utterance iit public ad
dresses to sentiments favorable or adverse
to proposed legislation pent ling in our
houses of congress. When the president
made the foregoing remark be knew there
was pending in congress bills for the ad
mission of certain territories into the union
of states. He bad been advised, that a ma
jority of the citizens of those ten itories were
antagonistic to his financial add economic
views, and under the cloak of supposed,
religious address, before a relis.ious organ
ization, and with gross impropriety, and
for the purposes of preventing tbe achieve
ment of the rights of statehood to which
they aspire and are entitled, lie gave utter
ance, as chief executive, to this unfounded
slander against those citizens and states of
the republic, whose interests he is sworn
to protect and uphold."*
Mr. Powers, Republican of Vermont,
jumped to his feet and called Mr. Hartman
to order. "If there is nobody on this tloor,"
said he, addressing the Democratic side,
'•who is related to the president by ties of
alfinity or consanguinity, social or politi
cal "
"State your point," demanded Mr. Hart
man, interrupting him.
"The point of order, Mr. Chairman,"
continued Mr. Powers, "is that it is not
possible here to reflect upcfi a co-ordinate
branch of government."
"I am not reflecting on the president,"
said Mr. Hartman. "I am reflecting upon
the sentiments which the president utters
and I have a right to do so."
Mr. Hepburn, Republican of lowa, who
was in the chair, said that he did not feel
called upon to say whether the remarks
came within the rule,whereupon Mr.Miles,
Democrat of Maryland, came to the sup
port of tbe president, but wbs promptly
overruled, whereupon he appealed from
the decision of the chair, adding that Mr.
Hartman had taken a liberty which had
never been countenanced in the American
congress before. The chair, however, was
sustained and Mr. Hartman proceeded.
"The percentage of crime in those states
and territories will not exec id that found
in the state of New V ork, where the presi
dent seems to think all virtue resides. The
per capita of wealth of the citizens of our
state exceeds that of any state in the
union, save one. Our educational facili
ties are equal to those of any section of tiie
union, and if some of the patriotism of the
people of the west iiad been possessed by
the president and his friends, the citizens
of this republic would not have been called
on to witness tbe national humiliation of
hauling down the American flag at Hono
lulu, of begging the bankers of Wall street
and Great Britain >o save us from finan
cial ruin, and under the behests of the
powers behind the throne, of denying to
the oppressed citizens of Cuba the recog
nition which the dictates of humanity and
common right demand. (Applause.»
"It is true we do not get our patriotism
from Wall street, where the president gets
his. (Laughter. 1
"It is true none cf our citizens have pos
sessed that particular style of patriotism
which would enable them to save by thrift
and strict economy five times as much as
their entire income amounts to, and it is ]
also true that tbe patriotism of these •cor
rupt and unsafe territories and undesirable
states'has never yet been able to rise 13
that lofty plane of supreme wisdom and
virtue."
At this point Mr. Hartman's five min
utes expired and Mr. Grosvener t Republi
can of ' 'mo 1 undertook to help him out by
the parliamentary expedient of securing
recognition and yielding his time back to
Mr. Hartman.
"I think," said Mr. Orosvenor, "thai my
friend from Montana overlooks one very
important fact. When we get on our feet
in a deep religious frame of mind, it is a
new field; then we are ploughing in virgin
soil, as it were."
"I raise the point of order that Uie gen
tleman is out of order," broke in Mr. Sul
ser, "because the other day he (Grosvenor)
said on this floor that he had no religion.
'Laughter.: Having no religion himself, 1
submit that he is incompetent to discuss
the question of the religion of any other
man."
"I never said that I had no religion," re
piled Mr. Grosvenor, "but 1 would rather
be without a very large modicum of re
ligion than without the slightest indication
Or common sense." Laughter.
"I am sorry for a gentleman who has
neither." retorted Sulzer.
"It is always unfortunate." returned Mr. j
Grosvenor. "when a gentleman is pos
sessed of such a knowledge of his own
failures that he constantly advertises them i
to the public." Laughter.
"Now, Mr. Chairman, 1 have been di
verted from the serious argument that 1
was about to present laughter and I
yield the balance of my tiuio to the gentle- !
man from Montuna."
"It is also true," continued Hartman, re
suming, "that the patriotism of these 'cor
rupt and unsafe territories and undesira
ble states' has never yet been able to rise
to that lofty plane of supremo wisdom ard
virtue which enables those who claim to
sjecupy it to justify the sale of thirty-year
government hontle of a year ago for 104.
when that very day te:i-year bonds were
selling to 106. On behalf of the citizens
of the states and territories thus slandered
and maligned by the chief executive, I
here and now repel the insult and respect
fully suggest that the greatest need of this
country for the work of the missionary, the
schoolmaster and the statesman will be
found at the White House." 1 Laughter
and applause. 1
This closed the incident.
At the opening of the house, at the re
?iueet of Hitt, chairman of the foreign af
airs committee, the senate's request for •
conference on the Cuban resolution was
agreed to, but the speaker did not an
nounce the conferees hill was passed.
The house then resumed the considera
tion of the amenduieut to the legislative
appropriation hill to abolish the fee sys
tem in tne case of I'nited .States attorneys,
fixed yesterday, except in the following
districts:
Indiana, $4500; Eastern district of
Louisiana. $2500: Maine, $;I000; Nevada,
$2000: New Jer<ey. 12900; Northern dis
| trict of Sew York, IdOOO, and Southern
j district of Sew York. $.~vooo.
I'nder the fee system both district at
j torneys and marshals were allowed fees
not to exceed $0000 and mileage, which,
;in some cases, swelled the compensation
|to as high as $8000 and $10,000. Instead
lof mileage at the rate of 10 cents per mile
| each way. the amendment allows attor
; neys and marshals their actual traveling
I expenses. It fixes tho fees of United
J States commissioners considerably below
, the present scale. The debate was inter
i rupled to allow the speaker to appoint as
conferees on the Cuban resolutions
Messrs. Hitt of Illinois, Adams of Perm-
I sylvania, Republicans, and McCreary of
j Kentucky, Democrat.
After the committee rose, without con
j templating the consideration of the hill, a
; bill was passed appropriating $00,000 for
| the reconstruction of the Rock Island, 111.,
I bridge, and then, at 5:20 p. m., the house
adjourned.
THE CCBAN* QUESTION
Washington, March s.—The conferees
of the two houses on the Cuban resolutions,
consisting of Senators Sherman, Morgan
and Lopge on the part of the senate, and
|of Mrs. Hitt, Adams and McCreary of the
house, reached a conclusion more speedily
and with less difficulty in their conference
today than had been anticipated. The
consultation was of about forty minutes'
duration, and it becamo apparent imme
diately that tho representatives of the
senate would be satisfied with the house
substitute. Senator Morgan was strongly
in favor of that clause of the house reso
lution which contemplates intervention, a
! declaration which he had suggested should
be made when the question was before the
| senate. There was mention made of the
j possibilities of war with Spain as a result
of the action by congress, and the exclu
; sive statement concerning the position of
| the administration in opposition to tbe
: recognition made by the Associated Press
was also the subject of some talk. So far
as the houao is concerned the resolution is
a closed question for the present. There
will be no more debate, because it is only
necessary for the secretary of the senate
to report to the house that the senate con
ferees have agreed to the house resolu
tions.
PENSION BILLS
Senator ("allinger, chairman of the pen
sions committee, today introduced in the
senate several bills beating upon the pen
sion laws. Une of these provides that upon
the consideration of the application for a
pension under the pension laws, ttie fact
the applicant was accepted and mustered I
into service shall be accepted as satisfac- i
tory proof that lie was of sound body and j
mind. Of the other bills, one empowers
f mirth-class postmasters to administer oath
to pensioners: one, in pension cases, the
oath of a private shall have equal weight
with the oath of an officer: oue that the
failure of a soldier to receive an honorable
discharge, providing there is no charge of
desertion against him, shall not be a bar to
the granting of a pension to his widow or ;
those dependent upon him, in case of his ■
death.
ANOTHER CUBA RESOLUTION
Senator Allen today reintroduced his res
olution requesting the president to recog
nize the independence of Cuba, which was
voted down last Friday. It is a joint reso
lution, and if it should be adopted by both
houses would go to the president for bis
signature or disapproval.
LEGISLATIVE NOTES
| The senate in executive session con
j firmed the following nominations: Samuel
j Comfort of New York, to be consul of the
j United States at Bombay, India; Commo- ;
> dure Thomas Self ridge, to be rear admiral
! in the navy; also a number of promotions
j in the army and navy.
The house committeeon invalid pensions
| today decided to report favorably the lull
I passed by the senate granting to the widow
I of ex-Secretary Greshama pension of $100
I per month. Gen. W. W. Dudley addressed
i the committee in advocacy of favorable
! action on the measure. A favorable report
[ was also authorized on a bill granting a
| pension of $30 to the widow of General
Kelley.
THE LETTER TABLED
Confederate Veterans Decline to Denounce
Commander-in-Chle! Walker
Richmond, March s.—The executive
committee in charge of the arrangements
I for the re-union of the United Confederate
Veterans refused tonight to adopt a letter
:to the camps, written by General Peyton
Wise, chairman of the committee, because
it denounced < leneral Walker, commander
i in-chief of the Grand Army of the Hepub.
| lie. General Wise's reference to Gen
| eral Walker were suggested by the
: action of the latter in regard to the pro
posed parade by the blue and the gray in
New York. In his letter General Wise said
; Walker was not a patriot, and deserved tho
j censure and condemnation of all good peo
! pie. The subject brought an excited de
| bate, and a stormy scene resulted.
General Wise declared that unless the
letter was approved he would throw up his
position and let some one else look after
the reunion. The letter was finally laid
! on the table for a week,

For Honest Honey
New York, March s.—At the regular
I monthly meeting of the chamber of com
j merce a resolution was adopted appealing
ito the commercial bodies and business
| men of the I'nited States to unite in an ef
i fort to create a strong public opinion in bo
', half of uuequivocal declaration by the
| political conventions of both parties in
I favor of the maintenance of our existing
' standard and of the elimination of all
I doubtful expressions in respect to the ro
| opening of the mints of the United States
I to the free coinage of silver.
Pretty Foolish Bill
WASHINGTON, March s.—Mr. Fenton of
j Ohio introduced today a joint resolution
j for an amendment to the constitution pro
i vidlng that no addition shall ever be made
j to the number of states of the union from
1 any territory which may hereafter be ae
| quired by the government, if such
i territory lies out of the parallel of thirty
| degrees north latitude. In the event of
acquisition by the United States of any of
I the territory so situated, congress is to for
ever exercise exclusive legislation in all
cases whatsoever over it.
Luuivocal Resolutions
Di -aware, 0., March s.—The Eighth
I district Republican convention met here to
j nominate a congressman and to select
delegates tj tho St. Louis convention. A

A Cycle Show
San PrANGISGO, March s.—The cycle
show and indoor bicycle tournament at the
Mechanics' pavilion opened tonight with
fully 0000 people in attendance, the larg
est number of spectators that has eeer
gathered at a California race meet.
The cycle show is an excellent one.
nearly all 1 lie principal m ikes of wheels
being represented and tastefully arranged :
in beautifully decorated stands. Almost;
every style of machine from the sixteen- !
pound racer to a fiix-soater is exhibited,
and from the interest taken in the exhibits
the outlook for a great year in tho cycle
business in California is expected.
The track, which is an eight-lap affair, is ■
probably the safest indoor track ever con
structed, and is banked to admit of a j
speed of a mile in two minutes or less.
Only one accident occurred of any conse- I
quence. It was in the last tifiy yards ol
the intereup race and Griffiths, the only j
Bay City wheelmen's representative, Tan- J
tau of the Olympic club and Downing ol j
the Garden City cyclers and Boyden of the i
Reliance club were sprinting like mad In 1
the positions indicated when Downing tried
to pass on the inside. He fell heavily and 1
struck a bench, breaking his nose, and it is I
believed fractured his skull. He is con- 1
scious and the physicians have hope for 1
the best. Downing is without a doubt one
of the first tan riders in California, and j
his track tactics are of the cleanest and
moat gentlemanly.
The racing was of the finest order, I
Charley Wells and J. E. Edwards winning
the mile events and Griffiths and Tantau
being tied for first place in the ten mile
cup race. Wells clearly showed his supe
rior ability, both as a rider and a general,
he seeming to have his opponents at his
mercy at every stage of the game.
The final of the mile invitation brought
[ out Wells, Downing, Yeoman and Squires.
! With four such men on the track a great
race was looked for, and the spectators
i were not disappointed. The positions of
lof the men changed frequently during the
eight laps, but on the fifth lap Wells began
to move up, and took the pole from Down
j ing. He set a killing pace, and though both

Downing and Yeoman tried to pass him,
he finished a wheel's length ahead of Down
ing, who beat Squires for the second place
by about the same distance.
The one mile open was not so interest
ing, owing to the fact that neither Byrne
nor Tantau would set their share of the
pace, leaving that work to Edwards, who
set all the pace and beat Byrne out for first
place. Edwards was loudly cheered for
his efforts.
The ten-mile Inter-club race was fought
out by (irtfßths, Tantau, Downing and
i Boydon. Griffith and Tantau tied for first
I place; Htm,20:37 I*B.

Among the Pugs
Sacramento, March s.—John L. Sulli
van, in an interview with a reporter this
afternoon, declared that he is tho cham
pion of tho world: that he won bis honors
legitimately in a bare knuckle contest and
I that he was one of the last men in America
; engaged in a bare knuckle light. Sullivan
| said that Corbett had no right or authority
' to give Maher the championship. The ex
| champion believed that the man claiming
i that honor should win in the manner in
which he had won it. Sullivan frankly
admitted that Corbett had whipped him in
a glove contest and said while lie was still
champion of the world, it was merely a
technical claim and that he was not bother
ing himself about technicalities.
The local athletic club tendered Sulli
i van a reception at their rooms tonight ef>
] ter the close of the theater, which was
j largely attended.

ANOTHER COMMISSIONER

Command ol the Body
New York, March s.—The latest Salva
tion Army commissioner to reach this
country is John A. Carleton, who had con
trol of the banking, insurance, property
and legal departments of the International
Salvation Army headquarters ill London.
He arrived on the Majestic. Colonel Nicol
says the visit of the commissioner at this
juncture was to perfect the legal transfer
of the property here from the keeping of
the commander to his successor. Commis
sioner Carleton asked to be excused from
making any statement in connection with
the situation of affairs in this country un
til he could have time to study the ques
tion more fully.
"I left London,'' lie aaid, "last Tuesday
a week ago on twenty-four hours' notice
by order of Bramwell Booth, and boarded
the Majeßlic at Liverpool the following
day. I very much enjoyeil the trip over,
with the exception of the last two days out,
which were decidedly unpleasant owing to

THE "CHRISTIAN CRUSADE"
The "Christian t rusado" is the name
suggested by Ballington Booth for the new
evangelic movement winch the former
commander of the Salvation army has
pledged himself to lead. The nucleus of
the proposed "Christian Crusade" is the
little band of Long Islanders, the Sea Cliff
corps, who deserted fn a body, following
their officer, Captain Millions, and on
Tuesday sent a telegram to tho Booths at
Montclair, announcing themselves as "'an
independent religious body," and inviting
their former leader to assume command.
Ballington Booth at once telephoned an ac
ceptance, sent a former Salvationist, Cap
tain Seake, to take charge, and straight
way the career of 'he infant organization
began with the* hiring of a hall, the one
selected being the former barracks of the
defunct Salvation army Sea Cliff corps. It
is said mat Ballington Booth will at once
establish a paper in opposition to the
famous War Cry and that it will be "up to
date" in all evangelical matters.
A DIVORCE CASE
Which Is Called Sensational and Certainly Is
Nasty
San Francisco, March 5 —Colonel The
odore Marceau has commenced a sensa
tional suit, lie has taken legal steps to
secure permanent separation from his wife
by instituting proceedings in the superior
court today.
His ground for divorce is adultery,in
support of which charge he relates in his I
complaint an exciting occurrence at the i
Palace hotel this morning.
It was a sensational affair, ending in the
alleged expose of the wife's infidelity and
bringing into unenviable notoriety John J.
Mahoney, a Canadian gambler, who has
resided at the Palace hotel.
This much accomplished, Colonel Mar
ceau then made off with his youngest child,
Theodore, jr., and having found a placo of I
safety for the iatter. he hied himself to '
Judge Paterson's office and was soon made \
the complainant in the above mentioned I
proceedings.
According to the story told by Colonel
Marceau and his attorneys, several days I
ago he received information to the effect j
that J. J, Mahoney had become a frequent
visitor to his wife's rooms and at unusual '
hours, too.
Yesterday the husband fully satisfied
himself of the truth of this information.;
and under tho advice of his friends he con
cluded to act at or.cc.
Shortly after :i o'clock this morning
there was a wild commotion on the second
floor of the hotel in the vicinity of Mrs. i
Mareeau's room.
Guostswere aroused from their slumbers j
by the banging of several doors, loud tall:- ;
ing and the rush of many feet. Of course
an inquiry followed, and in less than an
hour a story had spread through the hotel
that Colonel Marceau antl made a descent
with several trusted friends on his wife's j
apartments and carried olf his youngest
child, a chubby boy who bears his father's j
name.
Later on another and more scandalous
Chapter was adiled to the story. It was j
charged that the husband, on making his I
unexpected raid, had discovered in his ;
wife's bedroom Horseman Mahoney.
In support of this charge there followed
the drafting and filing of the complaint for j
divorce and the admissions of its truth by
Colonel Marceau s attorney, Judge Peter- i
son.

WAR DECLARED
BIFF, BLUFF, BLUSTER,
BANG!
; licit ish Bulldog Tenacity and Span.
I ish Dash Counts for Nothing.
I The Arbitrament Ol the Swonl
to Settle the IntrriiHtional Con.
I stitutionality of the Monroe Doc
' trine
The war is on.
England may froth and rave and bluff
over the Monroe doctrine. Spain, in her
• petulant frenzy, may boast her ancient
I | chivalry and rear a warlike front against
, our country, but proudly, grandly, we
stand unmoved, undaunted, even eager for
> the fray, bet the British lion roar and the
Spanish eagle scream. t,3t them "Cry
, havoc and let slip the dogs of war." Our
slogan is: "God, our country and Old
Glory." The clash of arms and the roar of
cannon strike no terror to our brave
American hearts. Let the shrill bugle's
blast and the trumpet's blare assemble our
hosts to battle, and as they march to vic
tory or death, their battle song shall be:
"Our country, 'tis for thee,
Sweet land of liberty."
Spanish dash and bullring tactics will
have but a passing effect upon the invin
cible and superior numbers this nation can
send to her defense, nor "flying squad
rons," nor British bulldog tenacity can
ever cause her to recede from her position
as debited in the president's special mes
sage, when lie re-enunciated and reinter
preted the Monroe doctrine. Yesterday
morning's Times contained an editorial,
forceful arid able, favoring arbitration.
We must positively tako issue with the
great religious daily on this subject, as we
believe its argument inopportune and im
pertinent to the situation.
We arc not in an arbitrative or compro
| mising mood. Our enemies are menacing
i us. and they must and shall be conquered.
Yes, the war is on, and victory, grand,
I sublime nnd complete, is perched upon
our banner. Five weeks ago the Boy Wiz
ard, tho greatest living magnetic healer,
declared war against disease in all its ter
rible and hideous forms in this city, and
he has daily put tho enemy to rout. He is
conquering foes more deadly than British
"Hying squadrons' l and Spanish lances.
He is lighting lor homes where discaso has
reared its gaunt and slimy form and struck
its deadly fangs to the vitals of the family
circle. The Pacific Coast Magnetic instj-
I tute, corner Third and Broadway, is the
' battle ground, and the Wizard's only
I weapon is nature's gift—animal magnet-
I ism. Every day marvelous cures are be
ing effected by tho laying on of bands,
j The blind, lame, deaf and paralytic have
j their faculties restored, and the sick, no
! matter by what name their alfliclions are
1 known, are healed by the magnetic hands
of the boy.
It is a glorious war, because it gives in
! stead of destroys life. It brings happiness
j and gladness instead of sorrow and woe;
;it is inspired of God and, therefore, is di
vine.
AT THE institute
Ttir»=e who desire private treatment at
the Magnetic Institute, corner Third and
Broadway, may obtain same any day by
| calling from 10 a. m. to 4 p. m. Consul
j taiion, examination and a complete diag-
I nosis of each patient may be obtained
from Dr. A. H. Bryant, who diagnoses dis-
I case without asking any questions, looking
!at the tongue or feeling the pulse. Price
lof such diagnosis is $1. The price of treat
ment is within the reach of all.
The Origin of the Rose
Some indications of the origin of the
rose, both in time and in country, is proba
: lily given in its name. This undoubtedly
j comes to us through the Latin from the
I Greek "rodon," a word which is now
j agreed to be. in the wider sense. Oriental,
I not Greek. But to which of the two great
! families of languages it belongs is less cer
| tain. Heyn maintains it to be Iranian,
* that is, of the Aryan family—of the older
tongue of Persia and Bactria; and Persia
| might unquestionably put fohward strong
i claims to be the true native coun-
I try of the rose. But Professor Skeat,
j who has the majority of modern au
i ihorities on his side, declares it to be a
', pure Semitic word—the Arabio ''ward,"
j a flowering shrub, thus denoting the flower
of flowers par excellence. It is worth
; noticing that the Persian word "gul" sim
! ilarly meant at llrst only a perfumed
i flower, but has come to be used of the rose
alone. "L't rosa lloa ilorum. sic est domus
ista domorum"is the emplatic way in which
j the inscription over the lovely chapter
j house at York claims it as being the very
j flower of architecture.
I Both theories, however, of the name
, agree with all other indications that wo can
trace in placing the original homo of the
rose, much as that of our original fore
fathers, in the central, or western-central,
district of Asia : hut, instead of spreading
only in a westerly direction, the rose took,
apparently, a more catholic view of the
! earth, and expanded impartially east and
1 west, without showing any reluctance
j about longitude, while disliking the more
violent ciianges of temperature implied by
an extension of latitude. It has been
found by travelers as far south as Abys
sinia in one hemisphere and Mexico in the
other; but it never seems, voluntarily, to
come ve r y near to the equator. North
ward, however, nothing seems to stop it,
since it has conquered Iceland, Greenland
antl Kamtchatka.
"In Iceland, so unfertile in vegetation
that in some parts the natives are com
pelled to feed their horses, sheep and oxen
on dried fish, we find the Rosa rublginosa,
with its pale, solitary, cup-shaped flowers;
and in Lapland, blooming almost under
the snows of that severe climate, the na
tives seeking mosßes and lichens for the"
reindeer find the roses maialis and rubella,
the former of which, brilliant in color and
of a sweet perfume, enlivens the dreari
ness of Norway, Denmark and Sweden. —

satisfaction at the powers for recognizing
Prince Ferdinand, whom it was hoped to

to an extract from the Bulgarian news
paper Moldt, saying that Bulgaria is dis
illusionized by Russia's policy recognizing
the prince. Opinion here is growing irri
tated respecting Bulgarian pretensions.
