LAWS FOR THE STATE. A BILL TO GIVE RAILROAD STOCK HOLDEHS NEW RIGHTS. Prorata Payments on Mortgages to Give Them an Interest in Them—The General Tax Bill Consumes the En tire Day in the Lower House. Atlanta, Ga-, Dec. 14.—1n tee Senate to-day Mr. Rloe introduced a hill to author ise the stockholders of railroad companies to make payments upon m rtgages under process of foreclosure against such compa nies, and thereupon become interested in said mortgages. The bill provides that when default is made by any railroad com pany in the payment of "the principal or in terest of any bonds of such company se cured by mortgage on its property, it "shall he lawful for a stockb dder, %• any time during the process o; foreclosure, to pay t the mortgagees such proportion of the sum due as such stockholder's stock b ar- to the whole st- ck, and upon such payment the stockholder, to the extent thereof, shall be come interested in said mortgage and pro tected thereby. Mr. Harri-, of the Third offered a resolu tion providing that a ree-ss of the general assembly lie taken to the first Wednesday in July, 1889, after the massage of the ap prop: lotion and tax b.lla. The resolution was laid over one da_, under the rules. In the House. The House devoted nearly the entire day to consideration of the tax act and at 6 o’clock this evening passed the bill. Only a few f-hanges were made in the bill as re ported by the ways and means commute-. The licf-nse to eil liquors was increased from SSO to SIOO. Section 34, wading “Thai all the tax-'s raised under and In virtue of this set shall be used solely for the purpose mentioned in the caption thereuf and not otherwise,” was stricken out after consid erable debate. Mr. Harrell said that he in dorsed the section so that no money could be illegally appropriated. MR. FELTON OPPOSES IT. Mr Felton said that the section was something new and that he was op posed to its being in the tax act. If any money was illegally appro priated by legislature an injunction could be brought by any one who wanted to keep the money from being spent in that wav. The insertion of the section looked like dictation from the ways and means com mittee. When the end of the bill had been reached the House went back to considera tion of the first section which had been passed over. AS EXTRA TAX. Mr. Arnheim of Dougherty offered an amendment to the section reading: “And the governor be and is hereby authorized and empowered with the assistance of the comptroller general, to assess and levy in addition to the foregoing general tax, a tax of one half of one mill foi the year 1889 and a tax of one mill for the year 1890 on all of the taxable property of this state for the purpose of raising the funds neceasary to meet the appropriations by this general assembly for educational purposes in instructing children in the elementary branches of an English education only.” In the debate upon the amendment it was developed that this additional tax was necessary to meet the appropriation of $165,000"f0r the support of common schools for the year 1889, and $390,000 for the same purposes for the year 1890. Thisgfemend ment was adopted, and the bill was then read and passed. Among tne bills introduced to-day were the following: By Mr. Clifton of Chatham—To enlarge the jurisdiction of the city court of Kavnn nah. Also, a bill to encourage the cultiva tion of oysters in Warsaw river. By Mr. Gunter of Henry—To prevent loan associations and individuals from col lecting more than 8 per cent., including in terest. CLERICAL CHARITY. Methodists Show That Their Purses Are as Open as Their Hearts. Eastman, Ga., Dec. 14. —The conference was engaged to-day iu examining into the work and character of the undergraduates. About twenty young ministers were ad vanced and about ten local ministers wore elected to deacons’ and elders’ orders. Dr. W. P. Harrison addressed the confer ence in behalf of the publishing interest of the church. He had edited 156 books. All have been profitable to the publishers. Tho doctor’s apjiearance indicates that he lives more on books than beefsteak. He is also the author of several books and the editor of the Quarterly Review, wnich holds a high rang among the reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. Kev. J. B. McGehee and others introduced a paper calling for the organization of a benevolent society to create a sustentation fund for the benefit of superannuated min isters and the widows and orphans of minis ters, and asking that an agent be put in tho field to endow this society. Kev J. D. An thony was asked for as agent. Tho paper met the concurrence of tho conference. One layman has already subscribed $12,000.” Dr. Chandler preached this afternoon and delivered an address to-night on education. The collection raised last night at the clono of eloquent addresses by Dr. Morton and Bishop Duncan amounted to $3,650. This will cheer the heart of young Mac donriell in Durango, Mexico, as it is to help build a church there. He is a brother of A. H. Macdonnell of Savannah. A minis ter asked that some friend loan him SSO to send his afflicted son to a surgical institute, not having the money himself. In five minutes $125 was handed him as a gift. His case touched the heart of the ministers, and the money came quick and freely. MILLEDGEVILLE’S ASYLUM. The Legislative Committee Begins Its Inspection. Milledoevtllk, Ga., Dec. 14.

Washington, Dec. 7.— Brandon, the country seat of Colonel Benjamin Harrison, the father of General W iiliam Henry Har rison, is on the James river, about SO miles below Richmond. Tne house is still the property of the Harrisons and is in compar atively good repair. The present occupant and owner is the widow of George Evelyn Harrison. This lady was Miss Isabel Ritchie. the daughter of the famous “Father Ritc.ue, ~ of the Richmond Enquirer, wao was called later to the editorship of the Union a democratic paper in this city under the patronage of the late IV. \Y. Corcoran. Tins Mrs. Harrison of Brandon is an ele gant an 1 highly-cultivated woman. Her son, George Ev iyn Harrison, died about five years ago, leaving a widow and four children. She fives on a small estate be- 10-i.ing to Brandon. Her o.dest son, the future neir of the- estate, who is also named George Evelyn Harrison, is now in New York studying to be an architect. He is a tine young fellow, just 21 years o.d. and has c oen t r.is tv te- on on account of his own taste in this direction. he won’t need to work hard. 1: will not be necessary, however, for the v. mg c an t > work very h >rd tor a living. a= B. andon is a rich plantation and the produce it yields brings a good price in the market and amply supplies the family w ith all they need. The present mistress of Brandon, Mr*. Isabel Ritchie Harrison, has a daughter wuo, while she is perhaps about 45 years ■id, is oue of tee most beautiful women in Virginia. She is named for her mother, Isabel Ritchie. .Sue has had offers by the score, but, loyal to toe memory of a gallant confederate colonel who bore on of th<- most distinguished names in Virginia’s his tory, and who was snot while leading a •esperate charge in one of the battles of nortnern V rgima, she has firmly declined them all. Miss Harrison is a decided brunette, with clear, cuive complexion, a Dnght color, large, dark eyes and nair, is an acc mplished musician, ar.d is something of an artist. Her education, like that of Mrs, Arnelie Rives (.'hauler, was m stly acquired at home. She is an omnivorous reader, and has spent much of her life iu tho rare old ibrary at Brandon. MISS HARRISON A STRICT DEMOCRAT. Miss Harrison is a good politician in a way, reads all the papers, is a democrat of the strictest sort, and she and her imme diate family uncompromisingly condemn the political creed of the President-elect. They neither indulge in, nor permit in their bearing one syllable that is derogatory of him as a gentleman and a Harris ,n. They are clannish t > the backbone. They do not expect to ask a single favor of President Harrison, but if he should choose to visit the home of his forefathers, the doors of Brandon will be open to him. as they would to any one who bears his name. Auil Brandon is beautiful enough to tempt a man, especially a Harrison, to leave the white house, even, to visit. About 300 yards of the porch which fronts toward the river is a broad sweep of the James, two miles wide, where the “Brandon,” a trim yacht, is always ready to tane the family and guests of Brandon house for a sail. A broad avenue, with old fashioned border of box, leads from the house to Brandon wharf. On e ther side of this avenue is an extensive lawn, dotted with flowers, shrubs, trees, and other ornamen tal plants. Two very anebnt white marble urns are about half way between the porch and the river. THE BUILDER OK BRANDON HOUSE. Iu the middle of tho irregular brick structure is the oldest part of Brandon house, built of English brick for the first Harrison who settle 1 at Brandon, the father of CoL Benjamin Harrison, the s.guer of the Declaration of Independence and the friend of George Washington. This part is two stories and a half high. Antique dormer windows are on top of the slanting roof, and four round brick columns, some what similar to those at Arlington, support the roof of the porches, which are of’ the same height as the two stories, and which ornament both the river and country en trance sto the house It is named Brandon house after the Duchess of Braudon, a fav orite friend and kinswoman of the fir.-.t Harrison of Brandon. Additions have been made to the house from time to time. Two wings connected with the main building by long halls, one used as a billiard room and the other as a ten-pin alley, now constitute the entire house. It contains fifteen large rooms. AN INTERESTING INTERIOR. On entering tho house one finds himself in a large square hall, hung with stag horns, rusty old swords, ancient-looking guns, and other implements of hunting and warfare. This opens on one side to a drawing room of magnificent proportions, on the other to an equally large dining room. These rooms aro filled with verv handsome old furniture, some of which antedates the revolution. The sideboard in tie dining room is weighted down with silver of a unique and ancient pattern. In these two rooms, also, are hung r, greater portion of the family portraits. Some of these portraits aro of unusual interest and several were painte 1 from life by Sir Peter Dely. The collection includes the Westover portraits. Westover, situated somewhat further down the river, was the country seat of Col. William Bird, the son-in-law of Col. Benjamin Harrison, and husband of tie eldest sister of Geo. William Henry Harri son. Westover has not been managed as well a s Brandon, and it was sold to Col. Drury oi Virginia several years ago, when the por traits were taken to Brandon. SOME OF THE WESTOVER PORTRAITS. Among these portraits is one of the Duke of Albertuarle, painted by Sir Peter Dely; one of Col. William Bird, another of the beautiful Evelyn Bird, one of Virginia’s old-time belles, who died when she was a young lady. Between t is portrait and that of lady Betty Cromwell hangs a fine portrait of Colonel Benjamin Ilarrison, taken when he was u delicate, sleude -look ing voting man. On the opposite wall is a portrait of Mrs. Col. Benjamin Harrison, who was Miss Julia Randolph. Over the mantel is a modern-looking portrait of Mrs, Giddings of Baltimore, a kinswoman, painted by Guillaume. In the dining room are portraits of Lord Fairfax, Hir Robert Southwell, Mir Robert Walpole, the Duke of Orrery and the Duchess of Braudon. The wails of both rooms are literally cov ered with pictures, and beside those men tioned are many more interesting portraits of tho Harrisons and Randolphs of this and of past generations. The library is in one wing of the house, and contains a large and miscellaneous collection of books. The Bird memoirs, m manuscript, beautifully bound, contain almost a complete history oi Virgil in. CHURCH SERVICE AT HOME. Every Sunday the Episcopal service is read by Mrs. Harrison, the Chatelaine, in the largo drawing room of Brandon, no church being near, and all the neighborhood people regularly attend. She also plays tho chants and hymns on the organ.

THE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15. 1888. COLOR ADO'S COMING SB NATOS. Stories of the Young Plunger Who is Said to be Next In Line. From tin Chicago Tribune. Washington, Dec. s.—The young and prosperous state of Colorado does not, it seems, intend to abandon its custom of send ing to the United States Senate somewhat bizarre representatives. First came Tabor the eccentric, and after him the use less. Senator Bowen is rarely in his seat. He performs little or no committee work. Since Fair retired he has become the most constant and distinguished absentee of the Senate. Somejof colleagues have even forgotten that there is such a man in exis tence. Bowen is really a brainy man, but nis mark of fame has been made as a story teller and poker player rather than as a statesman. He is to be succeeded in ;he Senate by a man who is not only a poker player, but a gambler and a “plun ger." Af’er March 4 next no one on the door of the Senate will he mo-e g azed upon by the women and the curiosity hnnters than ha dsome and dashing Senator Wol cott of Colorado. A man from Denver says the senatorial contest there is sure to result iu the election of Ed Wolcott to the Senate. The legisla ure is already chosen, and Wolcott and his friends have all the pin* so nicely set up i .t! e c > hi.ied efforts of Bowen and ex- Senators Hill and Tabor cinnot knock them down, a statement which may or may not oe justified by the facts. Wolcott is the most prosperous lawyer of Denver. He represents sucn great corpora tions as the Santa Fe, the Burlington, the Rio Grande, and the Rock Island. Though no more than 40 vears old, he earns $50,000 a rear and spends every cent of it. In law and politics he is described as a cavalier, de has both brains and eloquence, per so a l beauty, warm friends, and bitter enemies, and habits which occasionally ride him at a rapid pace. This is the same Ed Wolcott that won national notoriety last summer as a “plunger'’ in Phil Daly's gambling houe at Long Branch. The story of that little plunge has never been fullv told, hut as it ■vas related by the hero himself to a west ern congressman, makes an interesting con tribution to the current literature which bears upon the characteristic; of modern great men. The coming senator from Colorado lmd been to a horse race the day of his adventure with Phil Dale’s tiger, and had been lucky enough to i lace a little Minsv on a short horse which won. Vari ous bookmakers cashed Wolcott’s tickets, paying him in currency one after another until tne vouag lawyer f >und ii bis arms a large bundle of greenbacks wrapped up in a newspaper. Driving to his hotel with a friend, the bundle was opened on a table, and there lay such a mass of dirty, greasv bank notes, unassorted and in such hopeless confusion that the esthetic Mr. Wolcott was in despair. Ringing for two colored men, he gave them $2O apiece to arrange the hills in piles, but was still dissatisfied with his treasure. “What shall Ido with the stuff?” asked Wolcott, “I don’t want to cirry it around, and I don’t believe I waut it anyway.” One of his friends suggested Phil Daly’s, and to Daly’s went tne lawyer wi h his bundle of hank bills. The accommodating Mr. Daly removed all limitations from the game and Wolcott played boldly. In a short time he had all the chips in the house stacked up before him. He could barely sue over them. He was $20,000 ahead of Mr. Daly. But then the luck turned anl Wolcott’s pile began to diminish. Finally he threw a chip on the high card and re marked to the dealer that everything was to go wit.i it. A turn out of tho box and everything had gone. Seven thousand dollars was the sum represented by that one chip. “ X care no more about it,” said Wolcott to his fi lend, “than I would if it had been a silver dollar. I had a bottle of wine with Daly, went home to bed, and in five minutes after touching my pillow was fast asleep. I had enjoyed the evening much, and I played’,em, ’em, I played’em.” i ins beats all Mr. Bowen’s poker playing, for after diligent inquiry I am unable to learn of the present senutor winning more than $2,000 on a single hand. There are some other interesting facts about Wolcott. He is a clergy man's son and was taken out to Colorado w ith his brother Henry by ex-Senator Hill. The Wolcotts are Hill’s nephews or cousins, or something, and Hill started them on the road to fortune. Henry is now a million aire and Edward could soon be if he wauled to be. Hill is also a candidate for the Sen ate, but his lormer protege is thought to be invincible. Of course Bowon wants to come back, and has formed an alliance with llill, Tabor being also in tne combination on some terms, but the Washington friends of “The Plunger” are already making prepar ations to welcome him to the Senate. HOW THEY DO THINGS IN HAYTI. The Funny Experience of a United States Lumber Dealer in the Repub lic. From the Philadelphia Press. Washington, Dec. 9.—A well-known Government official, who formerly had business relations with Hayti, tells this story of the way things are run in the little Republic: “Some years ago I was in the lumber business and had quite an extensive trade with Hayti. On one of my trips to tho island I found that the president wanted anew palace, and after a good deal of dickering I secured tho job, which was to cost $1,000,000. I immediately sent for an architect, and when be arrived we went to work on tho plans. Judgo of my surprise when I was told that the palace was to bo constructed entirety of wood and that the only metal work about it was to be the roof and cornices, which were to bo of galvanized iron and painted bright coi rs. While I was w mderiug how it wonld bo pos sible to uss $1,600,000 in the construction of such a building, thesecretnry of tho treasury come to me and, through an interpreter, intimated to me that he should expect u little commsssioti on the job, wnio.i he modestly put at SIOO,OOO. Appreciating that this was one of the customs of the country which it would be well for a for eigner to comply with, I made no objections and promised hnn his commission. A isoo i as ho had gone mvav happy, the minister of war was ushered in, ami made a like inti mation for $109,000. Well, to mako a long story short, there woro so many palms to be greased that whe i everybody’s wants had been provided for the $1,000,000 lor tho construction ot the palace had dwindled down to a quarter of that sum. “Meanwhile the Haytien government had been negotiating a loan of $1,000,000 ii Paris for “internal improvement,” and word was received that the first installment was on its way. That fact was a sufficient causo to incite a revolution. There was a revolution, nnd mv friends the ministers wore turned out of office, some of them getting shot in the operation. I saw that ihe era of economy and reform had struck tho benighted country, and that the iiica of a palace had vanished like a dream.

He Dies Telling of His Wrongs-a Brave Indian and a Great Thief—He Hated the Whites and He Loved Fire Water. from the .Vrir York 9un. Denver, Dec. 12. —01d Colorow, the White river chief, died at bis camp near the mouth of White river, a few miles above Ouray Indian agency, yesterday, of pneu monia. Colorow has teea under the mili tary surveillance of his post since the conference of Gen. Crook with Gov. Adams at Meeker, in September, 1887. Since that time the whereabouts of the old man have been known at all times to the commander of this post. Since the attack upon his catnp, near Meeker, by Sheriff Kendall he has never passed east of the reservation line, and has always accused the settlers of White river of hypocrisy and betrayal. He had a passionate regard for White river, and when driven to the reservation placed his people on that stream only a few miles above the agency. Colorow nas been feeble for some months, and ho obtained permission to go with a few of his followers to the mountains south of ! he post during the summer months, to try the effect of the cool atmosphere of a higher altitude. A few days ago it was an nounced that he was very sick, and the physician at Ouray was sent for to attend him. He soon saw that pneumonia had fastened npon him, and so told the old chief’s friends. Great consternation was at once apparent. The squaws of his tribe stole off to the willows on the river banks, cut their hair, and otherwise gave vent to their grief at .he approaching de mise of the great chieftain. When visited by an interpreter and asked if he wanted to talk before dying, the old fellow at first thoughtfully shook his head, but followed by saying he had b-en wronged and persecuted by the whites, and that some of hi3 own people, the White River Uces, had talked two ways, meaning they had deceived him. Upou being questioned regarding the report he had caused sent to the department at Washington refining to his losses, he said with one exception his claims were true. He had always allowed the impression to prevail that some of his followers were killed at Rangely, but upon his death he denied this statement. He said none was killed, but he wanted the government to think so, believing thereby to gain sympathy and a settlement of his losses. He admitted that the two Indians whom Kendall tried to arrest stole the horses, bu. he had offered to let the whites whose horses had been stolen select any two horses out of his band to satisfy them. This offer was refused. Just a few minutes before the old chief died he called Gus, his son, to him and asked to be takon out to the bank of the White river, where he was laid on is blanket and died among the willows of the stream upon which he had passed the most of his years. Immediately after his death, as is the custom, some of the younger members of the band mounted ponies and rode to the ranges, where thirty or forty of the best horses were shot, the Indian belief being that the spirits of the hordes accompany the spirit of the thief to the happy hunting grounds. Preparations are being made for the burial, which will take place this after noon. The agency prepared the grave, which was made large enough to contain the body and a quantity of blankets, provisions and other articles for use in the future, which are supposed by the Utes to be absolutely essential for the peace and comfort of their dead. The Uiutah Utes are now coming by families to attend the obsequies and the oui look promises the largest Indian burial ever acc irdeci a member of any tribe. Asa chief he was looked upon by all Utes with great pride and interest, and has probably reached greater distinction than any other chief of the celebrated tribes. For many years he has been the terror of Colorado settlers, and a menace to the peaceful settlement of ihe western reserve. He first came into promiuence through the Meeker massacre in 1879. He was a lawless nomad, and resisted all the efforts of civili zation. The White River country he alwavs called “my country,” and when it was thrown open to settlement ha made life a burden to the hardy pioneers. He possessed much bravery, and by frequent association with white men had acquired a knowledge of the pale face's character, which he frequently used to his own ad vantage. He was never friendly with the government or Its agents, yet no Ute ever drew his annuity money with such prompt ness and regularity as Colorow. When tho treaty of 1879 was ma'e w.th the White river Utes, whereby tuey were tc lie removed to the Uintah reservation, Colorow strenuously opposed it, and ahvay assorted that his name had lee i forged to the treaty. When his tribe was moved to tho reservation Colorow deserted and went down on the Wh.te river near where Rangley now stands. He roamed around tho country, making peri odical visits to the settlers, frightening women and children and quarrelling with tho men. One feature of these visits was that he never returned to tho reservation alone. Some article of value to the settler always went with him. An invent ry of tors mni effects al ays showed somothing missing after a visit from the wily old chief. He never abandoned his nomadic way of living. His whereabouts were a continual source of anxiety to the agent, and tho only time he was positively known to be on the reserva tion was on days when annuity money was paid out or Llankets were being issued. Since the “Ute war” fiasco of August, 1887, Colorow has been under military sur veillance, which ehafedfhira, and added to his usual surliness, but, undoubtedly, re strained him fivm annoying the people in the White river country. He was 75 years old. Colorow would never scare. Many times his camp has been approached by cowboys, and ho has listened to their threats without moving. Some two years ago he was camped near Elk Springs, and one evening a party ot eleven armed man rode up to his camp and told the old chief ho would have to move. He listened to them in silence, and when they got through and waited for him to reply, he deliberately stepped into his tepee, appeared again with a Winchester, and said he was ready to be moved. It is nee ;less to say ho vias not moved. Whenever in council with other chiefs he was always harping on the loss of bis coun try, and the troachery of the other White river chiefs. Colorow was aj good rifle shot.. In fact, all of the older Indians are, as a rule, bettor shots than the younger ones. Oue time, while spending a few days at Ouray agency, the chiefs and head inon had a little council. All the other ludians had secured their rations, and one large steer remained in tho corral for distribu tion among tho chiefs. The question of wiio should do tho shooting came up, and it was left to Colorow, he being the oldest ono present. The chieis wont to tho corral in a body, aud Colorow, studying the position of tho steer, which was -evenly five yards distant, took a rifle from the hands of a bystander, tpid, quicker limn u flash, threw the gun into position, fired, and the animal dropped dead, struck squarely b tween the eyes. “His trade in pelts and furs amounted to thousands of dollars a year. The country was overrun with outlaws and outenats of every description, und every depredation committed in the way of killing stock or stealing was laid to Colorow and uis follow ers. The old chief actually thought lie was looked upon by the settlers as the rightful owner of the country, as he was humored in this whim by many to avoid tiresome talk. He will probably be succeeded as chief by his son Gus, who possesses all the old man’s daring, but lacks the lawless eliarac- teristies of his father. A government scout to-night said: “Colerow was cross, crabbed, mean, and always bad a tremendous appetite. He was always hungry. He drank his share of firewater, too. Now that be has gone no one but bis squaws and bis tribe will mourn, and tba Indian's problem becomes a very simple one. If he was still alive and a younger man, the government would have great trouble, as Colorow's extreme age is all that has prevented the Utes from com mitting many serious depredations in recent years.” AT THE Y. M C. ASSOCIATION. The Committeemen’s Meeting Last N igrht. The Young Men's Christian Association committeemen met last night, and the fol lowing subjects were discussed: "Howto Follow Up the Young Men’s Meeting,” by E. F. Cunningham.

DeCoster spoke of bow the recep tion committee work is carried on in the as sociation at Orange, N. J. The subject, “How Can the Membership Be Increased,” was discussed by R. L. Wylly. Rev. A. F. DeCamp gave the closing talk on the necessity of the Holy Spirit in Christian work. Hs spoke eloquently, and was listened to very attentively by the young men. The young men’s meeting to-morrow will be lead’ by L. T. Way. It will begin at 5 o’clock, and will last an hour.
