White ribbon -wearers rilled the audience
Toom at the First Congregational Church
to overflowing, yesterday afternoon, to
do honor to Gen. Neal Dow.
The mass meeting was under the
auspices or a joint committee, represent
ing the seven leading temperance organiz
ations of the city, being the Independent
Order of Good Templars, Womcn'sChiistian
Temperance Union, Christian Endeavor
Union of the District, Epworth League,
Sons of Temperance, Independent Order
of Rechabites, and Sons and Daughters
of Maine.
Mr. F. M. Bradley, who presided at the
ineethig, read a brief f letter from the
"old man eloquent," written in reply to
a communication from Mr. W. II. Pcnnell,
of this city, informing Gen. Dow of the
manner in which the temperance workers
of "Washington propobed celebrating his
Cx-Gov. Sidney Perham, of Maine, was
Introduced as the firt-t speaker, and re
viewed the work which Gen. Dow had
done for the cause biucc his early man
hood and now covering nearly three
quarters of a century.
Mr. Ellis, national superintendent of
legislation of the "IV. C. T. U., was the
next speaker. A woman, she said, it was
who had nrjt inspired .Veal Dow to under
take his great work of temperance.
"Our President, our Senators and Rep
resentative are all Mvorn to protect and
defend the Constitution of the United
States.'' said Mrs. Ellis, "but the rum
traffic is an enemy to the Constitution, an
enemy to every sentiment in the prelude to
Vtie Constitution, and enemy to domestic
tranquility aud general welfare, yet not
one word do our legislators feay in defense
pf the Constitution against this enemy.
The President's address contained much
about protection and revenue and tariff,
but not an utterance In opposition to mm
selling. Congress was called together to
pass a tariff bill and raise a revenue.
Our greatest revenue from such a bill
as Is proposed cannot exceed $300,000,000,
yet the Orinl: hill of this country last
"year was $1,123,000,000. Not one word
is baid In Congress or by the Pretideut
about this."
Remarks were also made by the Rev.
"Wilbcr F. Crafts, Mrs. Margaret riatt,
president of the W. C. T. U. of the Dis
trict, and President Price, of the Anti
Baloon League of the United States.
By a rising vote it was agreed to send
a congratulatory telegram to Gen. Neal
Dow, expressing good wishes aud encour
acement for the temperance movement.
It was also voted to indorse a bill to
be proposed in Congress, prohibiting the
ealc or intoxicating liquors in any public
building in the United States.
Supernal uraliios of Ueliijlon Ex
patiated Unou by Ilev. Stafford.
Rev. Father Stafford's lenten sermon
drew a large congregation to St. Patrick's
Catholic Church last evening. Every avail
able inch or seating aud standing room
in the sacred edifice was occupied when
the eloquent father began his theme, which
was "The Superuaturaluess of Religion."
"In all ages, in all times," he said,
'religion has existed. Races have lived,
flourished aud passed away, without the
blessings of civilization, without the arts
or the sciences, but from the earliest days
there was no instance, no record of a
race of human beings that lived without
religion. Darwin and others equally emi
nent had, after the deepest research into
the natural, admitted this. However much
these races were denied the fruits of the
advance of man in natural reasoning, there
wa s al ways found in their histories evidence
of their l.elief in the supernatural. Man
Is nowhere found without religion. The
spirit of prophecy aud the saciameut has
existed for sixty centuries, and the at
tempts of reason to explain this super
natural belief on human or natural grounds
has failed utterly. It is the divine spirit,
the revelation of God, made known to all
the world in all times.
"There have been unbelievers, Infidels
always, but there is not recorded in his
tory an era of unbelief, an eioch of in
fidelity. The followers of that reasoning
which tries by natural process to discover
the supernatural, confess their impotency
of thought at the very outset, just as the
spurious coin Is a confession that the
genuine somewhere exists. To explain the
supernatural is to say that it is the word
af God delivered through his priests. It
Is the divine revelation of the ages which
the bclences aud the philosophers among
men have failed to alter, and which proves
Its truthfulness with every rresh assault
upon it through that leason which is based
upon nature alone."

The Republican and Democratic
Senators Cannot Agree.
The Democrat Iuslst Upon the
Same dumber of Assignments
They nail Iaist Session, and This
"Would Leave the Hepublicaus
Ju a Minority.
The Republican and Democratic steer
ing committees of the Senate arc having
a very hard time reaching common ground
:n the matter of filling the vacancies in
the committees. Mr. Gorman, acting for
the Democrats, in all the conferences he
has had with Chairman Allison, of the
Ttepublican committee, has taken the po
Mtlon that the Democrats should te per
mitted to name a Democrat for every
Democrat who has been retired regard
less of the proportion such uppoiutees
would bear to the whole committee. The
Republicans contend that m some caies,
at least, this would work an injustice
and have refused to yield.
The one noteworthy exception is found
in the Committee on Appropriations As
constructed by the Republicans, when they
reorganized this committee, it couaibtcd of
seven Republicans aud six Democrats, but
two of the men placed thereon as Re
publicans Senators Teller, of Colorado, aud
Pettigrew, or South Dakota bolted the
St. Louis convention, and no longer count
themselves as Republicans. Of thy six
Democratic members, Senators Blackburn,
of Kentucky; Brice, of Ohio, and Call, of
Florida, have been retired. Mr. Call will
probably be returned when the legislature
or his State meets next month.
The Democrats insist upon naming a
Democrat Tor every one that has been ie-.
tired. If thi6 were done the hix Democrats
and two bolting Republicans would form
a majority of three, leaving the Republicans
a total of but five votes on the nnt Im
portant committee in the Senate, while, at
the same time, that party is charged with
the responsibility of the conduct of the
affairs of the committee.
To this the Republican.-, will not agree
and until some conclusion is reached that
will give the "straight out" Republicans
the majority vote on this committee, there
will be no filling of vacancies, unless
the Democrats, Populists and bolting Re
publicans can agree upon a consolidated
ticket. This seems improbable.
Mcuawhile the new Republican Senators
have been consulted and having been made
aware of the condition or affairs, are
perfectly willing to go without committee
assignments until their steering committee
is able to force from the Democrats
Avhat they believe to be a just arrange
ment. On no other committee docs such a con
dition exist. Commerce loses but M.c
member, a Republican, in the person of
Senator Squire of Washington; Finance
loses a Republican in Senator Sherman,
and a Democrat in Senator Voorhees. The
failure to fill these vacancies will have
no effect so far as the tarirf bill is con
cerned, for It Is known that Sen. i tor
Jone, silver Republican of Nevada, will
work in harmony with his Republican
colleagues on this question, and will vote
to report the bill upon which they agree.
The Committeeon Immigration loses one
Republican, one Populist and three Demo
crats. Judiciary also loses one Repub
lican and three Democrats; Naval Arfuirs
has lost one bolting Republican, one silver
Republican and two Democrats. Post
office and Post Roads loses one Republic
an and four Democrats, thus wiping tut
the entire Democratic representation ai.d
leaving Senator Butler, Populist, as the
only minority member. Privileges and
Elections loses its Republican chairman,
in the person of Mr. Mitchell of Oregon,
and two Democrats. The Committee on
Tublic Buildings and Grounds has u-t one
Republican and two Democrat, and Terri
tories, one Republican and two Democrats.
In each of tlicc committees the Repub
licans have the best of it so far as the
vacancies are concerned and they can very
well afford to let all the committees drift
alonir as they are until the Democrats are
willing to come to their terms.

The Washington Saengcrbund gave its
second and last concert for this season
at the Columbia, last night, to a large
audience of its friends, and the music
loving people of the city.
The program was a thoroughly musical
one, comprising some old favorites and
many compositions new to the average
music lover, but nothing trivial or un
worthy the high aims or the society.
The orchestra or the Saengcrbund is
well-known for its thoroughly artisticwork.
Each of the numbers executed by it was
The chorus had three songs, the most
popular of which was a composition of
Xander's with wonts by President Claudy
"Und die Menschen bie Nennen es Liebe.''
It was dramatic and inspiring and was
rendered with great spirit and yet per
fect smoothness and harmony. Miss Carrie
W. Myers was the vocal soloist. She has
without question a wonderful soprano
voice, one of many, a voice that will make
her a future.
Sol Minster played Vieuxtcmps" "Fan
tasia Appassionata,'' and was obliged to
give an encore number.
The event of the evening was the 'cello
work of Miss Lily Wignall. This young
woman is one of the great 'cclloists, and
this difficult instrument has seldom If
ever been played in Washington as Miss
Wignall played It last night.
Inaugural Views.
The Inaugural views placed on exhibi
tion al "Willard's Hall by the Biograph
on Saturday, Tor the first time, are without
doubt the finest ever seen m the city,
reople who saw the actual ceremonies
marveled at the life-like reproduction of
them. Among those shown -were the
famous Troop A, of Cleveland, Ohio,
which has gained the sobriquet of the
"Black Horse Cavalry;'' Gov. Bushnell,
of Ohio, mounted on his noted black
stallion, N. Igrow, for which he is said
to have refused an orfcr of $20,000; and
President McKinlcy and ex-President Cleve
land in their ride from the Capitol to the
White House, besides many others. The
picture of President McKinleyis regarded
as one of the mol life-like and vivid por
trayals of him that wao ever made. When
this pictuio is thrown upon the screen you
can almost hear the crowds cheer, as the
new President removes his hat and bows
to his admirers.
The Biograph will remain in the city
during the week, but its stay after that
time Is doubtful as the demand for It In
ndjacent cities cannot be disregarded.

DID TOU EVER surrer from real ner

quiver with a peculiar creepy feeling,
rtrst in one place and then in another,
and all seemed finally to concentrate In
it writhing jumble in the brain, and you
became Irritable, fretful and peevish; to
be followed by an impotent, weakened con
dition or the nerve centers, ringing in the
ears, palpitation or the heart, numbness
or the extremities, a cold feeling lollowed
by u sense or falntness, and sleepless, mis
erable nights?

In view or the approaching debate on
the tariff, which will begin today, the
views of the leader-elect of the Democratic
minority will be of Interest. These views
may not reflect any of the principles or
the minority report, which will be sub
mitted today, but they will, no doubt, en
lighten the public ab to what kind or
Democratic doctrine will be opposed to the
piotectivc doctrine of the majority, and
they will be more interesting because it is
believed Hint, with the exception of Hon.
Benton McMilllu, all or the Democratic
members or the Ways and Means Com
mittee, subscribe to Mr. Bailey's economic
Mr. Bailey was outsjioken on the sub
ject or rree raw material, and what he
considers the true Democratic position on
the subject.
Outlining the general policy or the party,
as ho would have It, Mr. Bailey said, last
night, to a reporter ror The Times: "Our
policy will be to discuss the tarifr bill
as fully and as fairly as the time allows
and, when the debate has been exhausted,
we are ready to take the vote, leaving
the responsibility for the passage of the
bill whore it properly belongs with the
Mr. Bailey was asked to speak with
reference to certaiu schedules. Be said
that there were, of course, a number of
schedules on which they would expect
to make a diiett issue and get a vote
but the mles had been reported in such n
way that it would be very difricult to
get such votes.
He was asked what should be the policy
or the party as to the schedules which
involved the taxiug or Tree raw material.
"Speaking for myself, I am unalterably
opposed to the doctrine of free raw
material and taxing the finished product.
In my judgment it isillogical, undemocratic,
and indefensible to say that the manufac
turer may buy his material free of duty
and then have a duty laid on his finished
product. It ia equivalent to a.ssertiug
that there Is a class of people in this
country who are entitled to buy what
they want free or tax wnile all the icst
of the people shall be compelled to pay a
tax on their manufactured comforts and
necessaries of life.''
Mr. Bailey was asked If this wasn't
a departure in important particulars from
what was generally accepted as Demo
cratic doctrine.
"Oh, yes;'' he said, "I notice that
there lias Leon such an impression abroad;
and. I am informed that I have been se
verely attacked in private and public
Tor this alleged heresy. It is very true
that the Democratic platrorm or 1802
commended the errorts of a Democratic
Congress in the direction of free raw
material, but it 1b also true that, the l)emow
cratic platrorm or 1S9G omits that in
dorsement and declares for a tariff which
shall operate equally and Justly upon all
classes and sections without discriminating
against; any class or section. This decla
ration was inserted in the Democratic plat
rorm at Chicago expressly Tor the pur
pose or repudiating the New England doc
trine of free raw material and taxing the
finished product."
Mr. Bailey said that his vfews applied
to free wool, rree coal, free iron, etc., in
the manner he had stated his position.
.Mr. McMillin was asked if he would state
his views. He has been very busy since
Saturday, and was busy yesterday at the
times calls were made upon him for an
interview. Mr. McMillin, however, said
that the country was familiar with his
views on the tariff. lie had been in Con
gress for sixteen years, elected every time
by a Democratic constituency, and he still
stood on a Democratic platform. He did
not care to criticise the Democracy or any
one else, nor would he discuss, for the
lack of time and opportunity, the duty
of the party as it might be developed in
the coming debate. Mr. McMillin, how
ever, left no impression of doubt that he
would continue to advocate the kind of
Democracy on which he had stood re
peatedly for election, and successfully, for
so many terms in Congress.
Rev. Emanuel C. Chnlton Tells of
Their Characteristics.
The services at the First Congregational
Church were made unusually interesting
last night by a sermon by Rev. Emanuel
C. Charlton upon the work of the Fisher
men's Institute, at Gloucester, Mass.
The speaker opened his remarks with a
reminder that JesuiTChristliad surrounded
himself with fishermen to assist him in
the carrying out of his plan of redemption,
and quoted historical incidents in connec
tion with the Revolutionary war to show
the brave and hardy characteristics or
those men who grasp their living from
the water or the sea.
He told, with dramatic voice and gesture,
of his mission work among the fishermen
of Gloucester, and of their perilous work
and lonely lives. Each incident was
selected from his personal experience. "I
have lived with these people," he 6ald,
"I have faced the storm with them, and
I know the desires and condition of their

An Ever Welcome Bird Appears in
the Capitol Grounds Evidences
That the Sun Hus Crossed the
Schomburgk Line uud Is Rapidly
Coining North.
The sun crossed the Equator yesterday
morning, and all around town there was
evidence that he Is heading at express
speed ror Washington. There were moie
things, and people, in fact, yesterday to
prove that gentle spring is here again
than to prove any other phenomenon in
tho universe.
Of course, there is a diffeiencu of opin
ion as to the exact time when the sun
crosses the line, but there has been a com
promise which gives him the benefit of
the doubt, for any time between noon of
the 20th of March to noon of the 21st.
This lamentable inability of the bcien lists
to fix tho fuct would not have been
possible, however, if these vernal equinox
manufacturers lived iu this day and genera
tion, and particularly yesterday, when
40,000 people went forth on bicycles to
proclaim the festival.
In further demonstration of the uvent
they would have been told that the Capitol
police discovered the traditional first
robin of spring perched on the budding
brunch of a silver maple and singing the
familiar song, to the efrect that the bird
desired the police to say to the public that
they saw him, and that he was doing
fairly well. People who missed the legend
of the robin must have noted the glorious
golden masses of the Scotch broom flowers,
which Hashed in the sunlight on dozens of
places on the Capitol Grounds, and In
some of the reservations, the life of which
had not been crushed out by the inaugural
reviuwlng stands.
And then, people who haven't been too
busy with afrnirs on the ground ought to
have noted that the English elms and the
Ulmls Americana, the same thing in the
American language, has been budding ever
since Friday afternoon in anticipation of
the sun making Its dash over the Schom
burgk line. And then there Is the Eng
lish sparrow, who has been wearing aruf
ried coat and with scarcely energy enough
to get out or the way or the Anncostla

a more interesting day than the first
Sunday after the vernal equinox. People
observe it fin tbe second inauguration or
this season.
It was the kind or day that the 00,000
bicycle folks have been waiting for ever
since the 1st of last Novemlcr. It was
also the kind of a day that the rest of
the population has been wailing for since
the same date. Tor flight into the suburbs
on the street railways, and down the
river, or up the river, or anywhere out
of the city limits.
The Zoo was one oT the several special
points or attraction yesterday, and its
precincts were crowded from 10 n. in.
until sundown. It was the place where
the animals or all kinds met for saluta
tion on the new regime ot the season.
They lowered the temperature In the
cages Tor the tropical animals. They were
restless but Joyous, with tho exception ot
the artic bears, which walked about in
front or their caves in extreme disgust
at the rising temperature.
The winter is undoubtedly dead. A tem
perature of seventy ns an every-day mini
mum as a possibility rrom now on proves
that conclusively. There aie those, how
ever, who croak Hint there will be snow
and ice and sleet several times between
the acts or March and April tepid showers;
but for all that people are beginning to
stow away the overcoats, and the furs,
and the iiiuffs,nnd the out-of-sight flan
nels, and camel hairs In the old trunk or
the oak chest in last winter's odors of
camphor and benzine. The Sunday school
superintendents are beginning to calculate
the ham, and pickle, and bread, and jam
expenses for the Sunday school picnic; old
linens are being smoothed out or rigged up
with fortuitous patches, and unnumbered
hundreds are about to pay the first in
stallment on the wheel of '07. Tho bees
and the birds and the Yield daisies are to
take the place of the coal scuttle, and
the rubber boot, and the porous plaster,
and those celebrated cough drops.
IdeaLand practical spring has come for
a fnct, as anybody knows who took a snap
shot at the wonderful beauty of yesterday
or heard the twitter of that lone robin on
the sunny side of the sun-bnthed Capitol.

This will be the first opportunity its

Ban Francisco, March 21. Robert Fitz

the world, and his wire arrived in this
city last night on the Overland train. Jack
Stelzner and Dan Hickey, and the big
dog, "Tarruin," reached her several
hours In advance of Mr. and Mrs. Fitz

Is taking his victory very tiuietly.
Fitz hus repeatedly stated since the tight

a championship contest, and Sterner
thinks that he means it.
Corbett was apparently reeling better
than on Friday, hut there Is still a ting
or sadness in his countenance, despite his
erforts to be cheerful. He is making a
strong effort to keep up, and "Jollied' his
friends, who appeared to be more downcast
than he did.
In conversation Corbett stated that he
had not given up all hope of getting another
match with Fitzsimmons, but that it would
not be in the immediate future, ns he ex
pected to be kept waiting for some time.
He concedes that Fitz is entitled to the
fruits or his laurels and that he should
have a long rest. At the same time Cor

against the new champion when he again
enters the ring. Corbett does not think
that this battle settled the question of
