?»end* for its passage upon the votes ol those senators who have no such faith. They can defeat it by direct votes aigair.st it. They can defeat it by amend ments destructive of any hopeful scheme for an international agreement. Such a result, Mr. President, I will not an ticipate, but will ask, in the public in terest, for the unanimous adoption of the bill as it is now proposed for the consideration and discussion of the sen ate. Mr. Chandler appealed to Mr. Cannon to withdraw his amendment, which seeks to have the United States take the Ini tiative and entire execution of the con ference. The countries of the western hemisphere, with the possible exception of Canada, doubtless favored bimetal lism, and it was tow ard the great nations of Europe that friends of the conference must look for co-operation. Mr. Chan dler appealed also to Mr. Stewart not to precipitate a general free coinage is lue by urging his amendment directing the mints to be opened for free and un limited coinage within one month after the failure of the conference 1 . Mr. Stewart spoke of the futility of in ternational conference. He opposed in ternational money, saying II was not jwcessary to commerce. He did not be lieve in going to Europe, to the creditor nations, to find out what money we should use. It wns for the United States to make its own determination as lo its money standards. Hoar of Massachusetts, Republican, interjected a question, prefacing it with the remark that he acquiesced with some of the views Stewart had expressed, as to the desirability of fixing our own standards. "But." queried Hoar, "after we had established our ratio would it not bo a good thing to persuade other nations to do the same?" "I think rot. 1 think It would be a very bad thing." responded .Mr. St, w art. "There we differ," added Hoar. Stewart went on to say it would be well to let Europe stick to gold. He clos ed with the statement that ho would not oppose the bill although he believed it placed the United States in the humil iating position of supplicating the crown ed heads of Europe. Bacon offered an amendment author izing the president to call, in his discre tion, such International conference to as semble at such a p lint as may be agreed upon. Mr. Chandler said that while he felt tbe amendment was unnecessary, he was willing to have It adopted. Stewart then resumed, denouncing th" proposed conference its a "fake" and a "pantomime." "You are deceiving thr people." he de clared .after reciting many of the pub lic eviis Hoar promptly lose to a question of order ar.d with mock gravity said that as the word "you" meant the vice pres ident, it was out of order to attribute to that officer all these dlsagretable things. There was a general laugh in which the vice president joined, and Stewart said hi? "you" would be ad dressed to Hear, who represented the general tendency to arraign people as anarchists, etc. At the close of Stewart's speech Chan- | dler said he hoped to pass the bill today.

IN TMIO HOI'SE Progress Witii Appropriations —Some Very Spicy Speeches WASHINGTON, Jan. 2S.—The house passed the Indian appropriation bill to ■ay and entered upon consideration of *he agricultural appropriation bill, but all Interest in these two measures was overshadowed by two very remarkable speeches, one made by Mr. Grosvenor of | Ohio, attacking ex-Governor Altgeld of i Illinois and the other by Mr. Dearmond heaping ridicule upon Secretary Morton j for the recent issue of a pamphlet en titled The Farmers' Interest in Finance Mr. Grosvenor's observations on the governor of Illinois were called forth by j the latter's speech last week, in which I he charged Unit Mr. Bryan had been de- j feated by fraud ar.d based his charge particularly upon the enormous increase | of the vote in Ohio, w here, he alleged. 90,000 votes were illegally cast. Mr. Grosvenor was very personal in his al lusions to Mr. Altgeld. laying at his door much grave responsibility for the result of the election. He declared that an ap peal on the stump against Altgeldism never failed to arouse the populace where all else failed. He then analysed the Ohio vote and explained the cause of Its inerase. calling attention to the fact that the Democratic vote in the state increased proportionately much more than the Republican. Mr. Dearmond replied very briefly to Mr. Grosvenor. but it was his subsequent attack •upon Secretary Morton which created the sensation. Mr. Dearmond is a Democrat, an ardent advocate of sil ver, and therefore his attack on a Dem - | ocratic cabinet official who had 1» en ! most active on the gold side of the con- j troversy excited less surprise than it Otherwise would have done. It already hud been noised about that the Missouri number intended to make an attack on the secretary and the mem bers eagerly crowded about to hear him. With biting .sarcasm and rasping irony lie scored the secretary of agriculture, taking as his text a recent publication issued by the secretary and sent out over the country under a frank, entitled The Farmer's Interest in Finance. The pamphlet reviewed the silver agitation, to show that poverty and Illiteracy char acterized the states which had been foremost in the demand for the restora tion of silver. Mr. Dearmond asserted that the demand for silver came chiefly from the farmers, whose interests the secretary of agriculture was supposed to look after, and asked contemptuous ly what excuse there w as for issuing to them "tills slander, this travesty on fact." The Republican party is not responsi - ble for him, int, rposed Mr. W. A. Stone of Pennsylvania. "Assured!) not," agreed Mi-. Dear mond, "and I can understand how grate ful you are that you are relieved of re sponsibility." (Laughter, i He went on to say that there were facts which some men lost sight of that weri known to all others, and one of them was that the illiterate colored vote rep resented McKinley's majority In most of the states which he carried. But. he said, no one took Seen tary Morton seri ously nowadays. The world was no longer interested in his vii ws on finance, although it might look with expectation for any observations he might make on the woodchuck, the hedgehog or the ey? of the potato. "It was once raid of an eminent states man," he continued, "that the secre tary stood alone—that modern degener acy had not reached him. "It could, be said of Morton, the sec retary stood alone; mod m degeneracy had not passi ,i him." Addressing the Republican side, he appealed to them to r< cognize Secretary ■Morton's service, even though they ■refused to acci pt r< spont ihility for him. "Of court -." he said, "j ,\i will not keep him in his present position, but you might put him in the national museum.'' "We will put him in a better place." asain Interrupted Mr. Stom of Pennsyl vania. "We w ill send him back to Ne braska." "Why should you de-ire to punish X- • ibraska'.'" shouted Mr. K«-m of X. bruska Populist nmldl shouts of laughter. "You Intimated that I took unrair ad vantage of Governor Altgeld.' put in Mr. Giosv, nor. "why do yon attack Si. - retary Morton here where he has no op portunity t., reply?" "Because," retorted Mr. Dearmor.'l. after a pause, "I know the gentleman from Ohio had. contracted a habit 0. speaking here at least once a day, and I felt that he could speak for him, if nec essary." (Renewed laughter.) In conclusion Mr. Dearmond agn::'. commended to the prayerful considera tion of the Republicans "this curiosity of modern political life." w hose peculi arity was that he talked when he was not writing and w rote w hen he was no. talking, and did both when he was not thinking. Full many a whim of purcsl ray serene. The dark unfathOfned dreams of Morten bear. Full many a who, 1 1= formed to whirr un- seen And waste lis fleetness 'neath J- Ster lings hair. (Great laughter and applause 1 Mr. Grosvenor got the floor during 'he debate on the agricultural bill, an 1 under the latitude allowed, proc,, ded to Interest the members with a reply to some remarks of Governor Altgeld's at a dinner given In the hitter's honor last week. The loyalty, honor and integrity of the state of Ohio, he said, demanded a reply- As tomuchof what Altgeld had said on that occasion, .Mr. Grosvenor remarked, his answer would be silence, but he could not pass over a single para graph. That paragraph Mr. Grosvenor had read at the clerk's desk. It called attention in partial substantiation of the sweeping assertion that Bryan had bi "it defrauded of his election, to the fact thai in Ohio last fall there were cast 300,000 more votes than in IS!*:'. This. AltgeH said. Indicated 1 an increase of population of 1,000,000. whereas, he charged, the Increase had not been more than two thirds of it. From this he concluded that (0,000 of the votes were fraudulent. "1 do not wonder," said Grosvenor. "that a gentleman who led a victorious majority in the city of Chicago very re cently and then was absolutely over whelm, d in almost all the counties and voting precincts of Illinois, should se lect his own slate as an illustration of 'he quality of unfairness which had been the index of this election." "Ex-Governor Altgeld is the last per son, in my judgment, who ought to drag from the rapidly closing waves of ob livion the history and detail of the re rent election. Whatever happened In Ohio was due to a large number of fac tors, no one of which was more powerful and potent to the victory ot the Repub lican parly in that slate than was the existence of a leader in the Democratic party of Governor Altgeld in Illinois. When all else during the campaign failed to arouse an outburst of tremendous enthusiasm It always followed the dec laration that one of the things we were aiming at was to purge the fair record of Illinois of the name ill office of Alt geld. He it was who in the Chicago con vention demanded, as was published and declared everywhere, the Introduction of those planks of the platform that arrayed hundreds of thousands of Dem ocrats, independent of the question of tariff and of the currency, against the Denu cratic party. Why, is it not very strange. Mr. Chairman, that that gentle man should fed some degree of respon • slbilty for ihe result and some degree of soreness as he looks back over the miserable record in politics which he himself has made?" Continuing. Mr. Grosvenor said there had not been a dishonest election in Ohio for years, and he gave (he credit of this to the joint efforts of the lending men of both political parties. Mr. Bromwell of Ohio, Republican, followed in further substantiation of Mr. Orosvehor's statements. These two speeches drew a brief but somewhat sar castic response from Mr. Dearmond. A number of amendments to the Indian appropriation bill were made before It was passed. The item to remove all restrictions ex- I Isting againrt the leasing, sale or con | veyarce of the allotted lands of the Puyallup reservation ill Pierce county. ! Washington, was rub d out.

WASHINGTON Jurr 28.—Controller j Kekels today gave his views upon the financial condition of the country to 1 the house committee on hanking and I currency. Several bills had been re j ferred to Eckels for his judgment, and Ihe analyzed them. While there was no ■ doubt a n *v-ssity for a change in the I government's iinar.cial system, Eckels J said the public was disposed to attrib ute too much of the existing troubles to the lack of monetary legislation. Over-trade, over-production and ex travagance in private and public ex j penditures, partly induced by Specula ! tlon, were largely responsible for the j country's business difficulties. The day ; had passed when the volume of money I was Its most Important factor. im ! proved credit was more essential. The ! first essential was stability tn the public j credit. The apparent reluctance of the . people of the' United States to redeem I their public obligations was the chief j cause of distrust. Current redemption demand obliga i ttons o:* the government was the ehi. ' j problem of Hi" treasury. The funding I and cancellation of these obligations, so that Ihe maintenance of the gold re solve was no longer necessary, was a RlOSt desirable policy. Whether it was the most practical was another question. So far as a contraction of the currency was concerned, EJckels did not think it Would follow th, gradual retirement of the greenbacks, provided credit <vas rea sonably Btable. Tile banks would sup ply the needed currency, or gold would come from abroad. The pursuance of Secretary McCuliough'S policy would have disposed of the question. Eckels I added. "The business man who Con stantly redeems his notes without re tiring them and keeps them out con | i tantly will come to i settling day that i will break him. The c hief feature ol I the banking bill would be to take from ! the government tin Issue of credit notes j The banks can do this." Banks c„n- I due led on pratical banking principles i Irxsrted of speculative enterprises, Bckeli said, could satisfy the curr, ncv needs jof business.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 29, 1897, THE PUGS FEEL VERY GAY Over the Action of the Nevada Senate JAW-JAMMERS MAY JOLT Unless Governor Sadler Sbuld Decline lo Sign the Bill Dan Stuart's Partner Thinks Very Highly of the Nevada Type of Official Morality Associated Preil Special Wire SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28.—The pas sage by the Nevada senate today of the bill licensing prize fights has given great joy to local sports and already they have In prospect battle! between noted pugil ists of all classes. It Is contended that the imposition of a tax of $1000 on every light will have a tendency to discourage dishonest men from going into the busi ness of bringing contests and that square rights will be assured. It is asserted that Dan Stuart will make his permanent headquarters in Nevada and will from time to time arrange contests ebtween the most noted pugilists of the country. The sentiment in Nevada seems to be strongly In favor of the bill. It is cal culated that the holding ot a big light in the Sagebrush state will bring thous ands of dollars Into Nevada. Carson, Reno and Virginia City, at any one of which places the tight may b< given, are only about twelve hours' ride from San Francisco. Her.o is on the main line of the Central Pacific and the other two towns are a short distance from Reno on branch lines. Governor Sadler has as yet given no Intimation as to how he will treat the bill, but it Is thought that the unanimity of sentiment of Nevada peo ple in its favor will induce him to sign it. The bill passed provides that a glove contest with gloves not lighter than four ounces may be held in Nevada upon pay ment to the sheriff of the county in which the contest is to take place ?1000 for a license, and the presentation of a cer tificate from two regular physicians that the contestants are In perfect physical health. This shall be done ten hours previous to the contest. Nine-tenths of the license money goes Into the state treasury and the balance to the county where the contest takes place. CAN'T TEI-L YET CARSON. Nov.. Jan. L'S—The bill to permit glove contests passed the senate this morning by a vote of 9 to 0, and the town is all excitement in consequence. The bill was not enrolled in time to be presented to the governor today, but it will reach him in the morning. Ofthe bill YV. H. Wheelock, Dan Stu art's partner, who has been on the ground sonic time, said this evening in response to a question whether or not the big fight would positively take place in Nevada if the governor signs the bill: "I cannot say that the big fight will or will not take place in Nevada. The bill, if signed, is satisfactory to me. and 1 presume it will be to Mr. Stuart. lam sure, should we conclude to bring the world"s championship contest to this state, ample protection from any kind of interference is guaranteed under this measure. Official morality is of a dif ferent type here from that in Texas or Arkansas." FITZ'S FEARS. NEW YORK, Jan. 28.—80b Fitzsim mons received the news that boxing may be legalized in the state of Nevada rather indifferently. "I am perfectly willing to box Corbett in Nevada." said Fitzalmmons last night, "but I fear that some obstacles may be placed in our way. As I said months ago I am ready to go thousands of miles to meet him if the contest can be pulled off. I shall readily accept any proposition Stuart may make. "Nevada is all right if the governor does not take a notion tn interfere with the bout. There will be nothing brutal about it. We both know how to box, and the better boxer will win But there will be talk by reformers, and all that sort of thing, and our meeting may be prevented. Still I am quite ready to take as many chances as Corbett does, and that should satisfy him. I want four weeks training near the battle ground, and I promise to give a good ac count of myself." Cl ilttlF.TT SATISFIED. CHICAGO, Jan. 2S.—"So the fight is a sure thing for Nevada, is it?" a=ked James J. Corbett tonight, when notified that the bill had passed both houses of the Nevada legislature. "Well, it's a great thing to have It under legal sanc tion, but it might as well be pulled off right here In Chicago, as far as moral considerations are concerned. "Nevada _suits me perfectly for a lighting ground, it may be a little cold there, and I was counting on a fight down south, where it is warmer. How ever, it Is all one to me. it's a high al titude ..lit there, lint I'll fix that by putting in my training as near the bat tle ground as possible. Nevada suits me all right, and 1 am glad that there will be no conflict with tie law or any court proceedings. I am tired of that sort of thing. A private dispatch received from Dan Smart from 1.. M. Houseman tonight says h" will tomorrow notify the prin cipals in the Corbett-Fiszsimmons to be prepared to fight in the state of Nevada on*s»he 17th of March. Stuart say- that he is not prepared at the present time to name the exact loca lio.i of the fight, but in the course of tiie next ten or fifteen days he will an nounce the town wheie the event will be pull, d off. A me lit g id' railroad men will be held In San Francisco for the purpose of considering lates and arrangements for people d. siring to go to the fight from points on the Pacific coast Stuart says in his dispatch that in the course of the next ten days he will leave Dallas for Nevada, in order to give the ar rangements of the fight his p. rsonal at tention. FOUGHT TO A DRAW. BIRMINGHAM, Eng., Jan. L'S.—The light between Dick Burge and Eddie Connoly for 15000 which tool: place at the Olympic club here tonight was de clared a draw and caused unusual ex citement, c rowds flocking to the doors of the club house and requiring extra police to preserve order. Inside the c lub house however, decorum prevailed. I >ick Burge was the favorite. He weighed 143 pounds and Connoly HIS. The latter was the first to reach the ringside, and he was accorded a feeble reception. Bulge was accorded an ovation. This I caused th. manager of the club to step Ito tie- froni and announce that any ex- I presslons Indicative of favoritism would Ibe follow, cl by the expulsions of persons I participating. The tight opened in a business-like manner. The first two rounds were de cidedly in Burge's favor. Then the ex cltemeni beoame Intense, for it was seen that a stubborn tight was intended, in tie- third round Connolly drew first blood. lie landi d a succession of heavy, half-arm blows on Bulge's ( best and peek. This can sec I Burge's trainer to shout: "Do the Yank, Dick!" For this Burge's trainer was severely re buked by the referee. The fourth round favored Connolly, who landed heavily on his opponent's Judge Waldo P. Goff of Clarksburg, W. Ya., whose friends think he is sure of a cabinet position, will not be unfamiliar with cabinet ways should this lie the truth. Judge doff was sercetary of th c navy under president Hayes, and is one of the foremost jurists and ex-soldiers in the south. He was a brigadier-general of the union army at I'll years of age, and is now in his fiftieth year, ell was ap pointed in IS9L' judge Of the United .-'•fates circuit court of West Virginia, a post he still holds. His political career has been varied and exciting. A Republican in West Virginia, he succeeded tn being elected to high offices many times. In 1882 he was elected to congress, and re-elected in 1884 and ISB6. In 188S he ran on the Republican ticket fur governor, and was given by the returns a majority of 110 over A. 11. Fleming.

After eeveralcllnches Connolly display ed considerable agility, recovering his position with ease. There was little change in the fifth round, Connolly's tactics, however, sieeming to produce some effect on his opponent's wind, in the sixth round Burge forced the fight ing and rushed Connolly to the ropes. The latter, feinting, slipped and nearly fell down and Burge landed, with ter rific force on his face. For a moment the fight seemed nearly over, but Con nolly gamely recovered and. the round ended with terrible punishment for both. The seventh round proved to be a rep etition of the savage fighting. Excite ment was at fever heat, many members of the club jumping up in their seats and shouting: "Stop the fight!" and "Call the police!" Connolly's face could scarcely be rec ognized during this round, still he seem ed to have a slight advantage, though Burge's body blows left him almost winded. Both responded gamely when time was called for the tenth round. The fighting was of the most terrific or der. After a few seconds the referee entered the ring and, signaling for si lence, said: "We must stop this fight." Instantly pandemonium reigned throughout the clubroom. Three hun dred men sprang to their feet, positively mad with the excitement of the mo ment as the referee declared the fight a draw. Connolly's seconds helped him to his dressing room. Burge apparent,y becamie insane as a result of the fight. He fought his own seconds, raved ar.d tried to get at Connolly's trainer, Kellv Burge's friends finally succeeded in gftting him away from the club room, his head, enveloped In a coat. The police formed a line and compelled the unwill ing mambers of the club to quit the hall. "The crowd outside joined with v. ho had witnessed the fight in cursing the decision of the referee. After the fight and excitement was over the correspondent of the Associated Press succeeded in getting an interview with Connolly. His head was terribly battered. Burge's heaviest blows fall ing chiefily em his face. Apart from this he said he had felt no ill effects from th,. fight. Asked his opinion concerning the contest. Connolly replied: "It was really such hot work that I do not know what happened. I hope my Boston friends will understand that it was a great battle." railroad foreclosure Not So Imminent As It Seemed to Be Steps Taken Looking Toward the Re opening of the Case in Congress. Committee Action. WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.—A step to waid reopening the Pacific railroad legislation in congress was taken by the sub-committee of the house committee on Pacific railroads, which was appoint ed to c onsider the bill for a commission to settle the indebtedness of the roads to tho government. It was decided to recommend to the full committee the full bill which was reported In the sen ate by Senator Gear with amendments which is practically Mr. Harrison's plan, and the bill will be reported to the house if it is agreed upon by the full committee If it is agreed upon at the meeting which Chairman Powers today called for next Saturday. The corrrmltti .• provided in the bill is to consist of the secretaries of the treas ury and interior and the attorney-gen eral and their successors in office. The commission is to lee empowered to take sworn testimony and summon persons and papers . and in any settlement it makes must rest rye to congress the right to regulate- passenger rates. Two amendments were made by the sub-committee, one requiring the com mission to report to congress one year after the passage of the bill, the other providing that th" act shall be subject to amendment or repeal at any time, shall not impair any rights now existing in favor of th" tinted States or inter fere with or supersede any pending pro ceedings in behalf of the United States or any other that the president may elect to prosecute. The second amendment was proposed by Representative Paterson of Tennes see. Representative Hubbard of Mis sissippi offered as a substitute a bill for a separate settlement of the Sioux City and Pacific debts. The Republic an steering committee today decided to make an effort to se cure consideraiion during the present session of the Gear Pacific railroad commission bill and appointed senators Aldrlch and Davis a sub-committee to confer with the Democratic steering committee on th" subject. o.V THE TURF.

THE VENEZUELAN TREATY Is Almost Ready for Signing and Trans mission The Document Will Be Forwarded to Venezuela b ythe Next Mall Steamer WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.—Senor An drade. the Venezuelan minister, was in congference with Secretary Olney for a half hour today. It Is understood that the treaty between Venezuela and Great Britain drawn up under the heads agreed upon by Secretary Olney and Sir Julian Pauncefote, is almost completed and probably will be signed and sent to Venezuela for the action of the Venez uelan congress on the next mail steamer, which leaves New York In a week's time. While there are small points yet to be arranged, none of them are of impor tance save that relating to the person nel of the commission. It was not In tel ded at lirst to name the arbitrators in the treaty, but to provide generally for th" selection of them from among dis tinguished jurists of the United States and Great Britain, leaving to the su preme courts of the two countries tbe designation of the individuals, but sub sequently it was found desirable to name them. Such delay as has occurred • In completing the last stages of the ne gotiations is due, it la gathered from official soure, s. to the difficulty in select ing the British arbitrators. From the aspect of the matter today, however, there is every reason to believe this will be arrange,! in the course of a very few days and that no other obstacle of importance will be encountered in concluding the treaty. Justice Brewer declined either to con firm or deny the report that he and Chief Justice Full, r had been appointed on the Venezuelan arbitration commission. It is understood the treaty Is not yet sign ed, and no formal appointment of arbi trators will be made until that action hass been performed, but it is Fa Id to be practically certain that the chief Jus tice and Brewer have been decided upon as members. The Venezuelan congress base been called to meet in regular session on the 17th of next month. It may be readily advanced if necessary to meet any time between that date and the first of Feb ruary, but as the treaty can hardly ar rive; at Caracas much before the middle of the month the is not like ly to take ailvantage of the permissory la w. One of tho greatest obstacles to the ratification by the senate ot the 1 general arbitration treaty has been removed in the arrangement by negotiation of a plan (or the settlement e>f the- Alaskan boundary question. I' l tbe course of a day or two a treaty on the subject will be laid befo' c the senate for its action. It provides for the appointment of a committee -o visit the country and fix definitely tie 110 th meridian which, un der the treaty of cession e,f Alaska to the United States, rorms the boundary be tween that territory and the British North west A SENATOR IS SELECTED To Rattle Around in Dubois' Old Seat A WASHINGTON COALITION Promises a Boost to a Free Silver Republican The Nebraska Senate Instructs Sena tor Thurston to Vote for Free and Unlimited Coinage.

Nelson, 1. Fourteen Democrats joined the Popu lists for Heltttcld, and he also received the vote of the single Republican mem ber. Four Democrats went to Dubois. In tin- campaign the Democrats and Populists enteered into a fusion, under which the Populists were to have the congressman and senator.

HOT DRY AIR FOR THE-MUSCLES Successful New Treatment for Rheu matism and Sprains Experiments have just been concluded at a hospital in this city with a new method of treatment for chronic rh( u matisni and gout, sprains and other dis eases of the Joints and muscles, which have excited great interest In the medical profession, both In England and Amer ica. The method is known as the Taller man-Sheffii M treatment, by the local application of superheated dry air. The effect of the treatment Is to give to the patient In his own house or in a hospital more beneficial effects and In a much moie permanent form than those obtained by visiting various "hot springs" and other resorts, which are ac cessible only to the rich. The apparatus consists of a copper cylinder of varying;size, according to the part of the body to be treated. Its ends are covered with air tight cloth, through which the limb to be treated passes. Tiie limb rests on an asbestos frame inside the cylinder, which does away with all danger of scorching by the hot metal. The cylinder rests on a frame under which is a row of gas jets, and an ar rangement of valves and stop cocks provides for drawing off every particle of moisture in the air resulting from Ik rsplratlon. The most remarkable feature of the apparatus is that it enables the patient to bear a temperature of 250 to 300 de grees, which, if the air were moist, would almost consume the limb. Not only is there no scalding, but the sensa tion is positively a pleasant .one, and patients who have been racked with pain for months have beern known to fall into a refreshing sleep while undergo ing the treatment. Mr. Tallerman's method was tested thoroughly for two years in St. Bar tholomew's hrispital. the Northwest London hospital. Charing Cross hospital and St. Mary's hospital in London.. It was officially adopted by them about two months ago, and has been recom mended as the best treatment for joint affections by Prof. W. J. Walsham of St. Bartholomew's hospital, who de clares that he has substituted it for methods of treatment which he had been using for fourteen years.

A PIANO LAMP DISASTER Fire In the apartments of William Hamilton Henderson, on the fourth floor of a four-story brown stone building;, in Twenty-first street, early yesterday morning, caused trifling damage to the building, but Mr. Henderson's valua ble collections of rare prints and paint ings, valued at $0000, were totally de stroyed. When Mr. Henderson returned from a dinner pa rty he found his place in flames. A piano lamp that had been left burning had exploded and started th* blaze. The firemen played havoc with the works of art, and it was two hours before the flro fire was extinguished. The art collections of the Hamilton and Henderson families for six genera tions were consumed, and a large num ber of prints, engravings and Dresden, Minturn, Wedgewood and old English china that Mr. Henderson collected during a tour he made in Europe a short time ago were destroyed. Mr. Henderson was so prostrated ovef his loss that he was compelled to placa himself under the care of Dr. Rosa at the Waldorf hotel. The house where the Are occurred is the same that was built by Commodore Vanderbilt, and was his home for many years. Mr. Henderson Is in the perfumery business. —New York Journal. TOLERATION FOR THE CRANK. If there Is a despicable man on earth, that man is the chronic crank. If any thing happens to please him he never shows it.
