' Lending Republicans Are Involved. Spntz and C'ostello Tell Tlielr Story. The Senatorial Sltuailun Unelinnged, ltut Quay Gets In Ills Work Against the Democrats on the ltrnco Charter. (Special Correspondence.) Ilarrisburg, March 20.—The legislature Is preparing to adjourn in conformity with the Democratic program. On Thursday last Representative Creasy of fered a resolution providing for night sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, beginning tomorrow night. The object of this is to hurry legisla tion so that the house may tie ready to adjourn on the date set, April 20. The Democratic leaders believe that ail neces sary legislation can be completed by that time and there is no necessity for eon tinuing the expenses of the legislature longer. THE BRIBERY SCANDAL. The bribery investigation this weei; was not very sensational. Only two new witnesses were examined, although two of the accused were given an op port unity to testify before the committee and explain their connection with th ■ alleged use of money in the passage of the McCarrell hill. The new witnesses were Representative S. S. Smith, of Cameron county, and Editor O'Toole, of a Scrnnton newspaper. Representative Charles B. Splits, of | Berks county, was subpoenaed, and do- ' nied having ever offered any money to anybody to either vote for the McCar rell bill or sign the paper agreeing to stand by lion. George A. Junks to the end. Mr. Spats admitted that he had taken the three Democratic members from Northampton county downstairs to the room of a tnan named Lawler, whose room connected with that of ex-Senator Coyle, but that it was not for an im proper purpose. The three gentlemen from Northamp ton swore that Spatz took them down there and introduced them to Coyle, who j made them an offer of money. Spntz | said that he took them down to Lnwler's room, where there was pen nnd ink, so they could sign the paper. Spats pre sented a copy of what purported to lie the paper and which he said had been typewritten by Mr. Nichols, whom Chair man Fow, of the investigators, said was the private secretary of ex-Senator Wilt iam 11. Andrews, of "Lexow" notoriety. Representative Sptaz said that he liail ; never talked the McCarrell bill over j . with Senator Coyle and had never been offered any money to vote for it or to i vote on the senatorsliip. i REPRESENTATIVE SMITH'S STORY. Representative Smith said that he had j not been offered money or any valuable ! thiug, but that a man had asked him into a committee room, and there re quested him to help support the McCar rell bill, nnd just as he began to talk about "two and a half" some oue en tered the room, and that ended the con versation. He refused to give the until? ] of the person, but it is believed to be a i member. Michael J. Costollo, who is accused of having introduced John Engler, of I.v coming county, to ex-Scnator Coyle when Coyle offered Engler money, and who is also charged by Engler under ontli with having driven out to his house 13 miles from Williamsport and offered him S3OO to vote for the McCarrelll bill, also took j the stand. Costollo denied everything. He said that lie was interested in the -McCarrell hill because his brother was charged with conspiracy in Lycoming county, and he thought it would help him. He denied that he had ever of fered Engler a penny, und gave as the excuse for driving out to his house in a ! snowstorm that lie wanted to know why he hud not voted for the McCarrell bill. Being cross examined by Chairman ' Fow Costollo admitted that he did not know that his brother was under indiet j mcnt for highway robbery. He said he thought it was for "conspiracy to rub." He further admitted that lie did not know the McCarrell hill did not ajiplv t.i sueh crimes. He swore that Representa tive Yates, Republican, of Philadelphia, had told him and several others that lie was going to desert Quay and vote for Dalzeil because Senator David Martin, of Philadelphia, had offered to make hiiu a magistrate in that city. Representative Yates "will go on the stand and deny the story of Costollo as a deliberate falsehood. Senator Mar tin said he would not dignify Costello's statement with n denial. Democratic State Senator J. Henry Cochran, of Ly coming, is greatly used at Costollo, who dragged his (Cochran's) name into the matter. Costollo is likely to suffer for his notions when the prosecuting committee gets down to work. , EDITOR OTOOLE'S STATEMENT. ! Mr. O'Toole is editor of a Sera uton paper that published three columns of an article about members being compelled to vote for Quay, and stated thai Judge .v.ehibald, of Lackawanna county, hud held an office over the head of Repre sentative Macke.v as a chili to force him into voting for Quay. The editor ad mitted that his information had come from Representative Mnekey, Republi can, of Lackawanna. Representative Mackey wilt be called to the stand this week, and the revelations regarding this judge can then he made, j Editor O'Toole in his article made some statements reflecting on Represent ative Timlin. Democrat, of Lackawanna. He said that Timlin's election was in doubt, but that the Republican candidate withdrew from the contest because it wus understood that Timlin would help Quay if necessary. O'Toole stated that this was common tall; around Hcrunton, sud that tlint was the basis for its pub lication. The committee adjourned to meet Monday night, wtTen ex-Senator John J. Coyle, of Schuylkill eoiinly, was given an opportunity to make a state ment regarding his complicity in the at tempted bribery, j SENATORIAL SITUATION.

Dear, in your hands 1 leave our after fate, With but one prayer for all the old love's sake; If you should answer, it is all too late To dream a dead affection should awake, Speak without bitterness.

He was looking at May's portrait—a lovely little miniature—when the housemaid brought the. packet to him. The girl entered timidly, with a fur tive glance at her master, for whom her heart was bleeding. But if her timidity had arisen from the fear of seeing some exhibition of terrible sor row, she had alarmed herself needless ly. No sign of tears, either past or present, was visible in the young man's eyes. They were hard and bright. Hard, also, was his face, and the clenched lips like adamant. He took the thick envelope off the salver, glanced at the clerky writing and at the back, upon which wa3 stamped in blue letters, "W. Robinson & Co." Then he flung it on the table, and as the servant left the room the sound of harsh laughter broke upon her astonished ears. She fled to the kitchen and with scared face whis pered that she thought poor Mr. Ord must be going mad. Small wonder, perhaps, if he were! He had written a few days before to William Robinson for those patterns that he might choose the materials for I his wedding suit. What a weighty matter that choice would have been! May was so particular about what he I wore. He used to be a little careless about his dress once—going about in : coats with creases in them, and farm ! er's boots. Then, in his endeavor to gain May's approbation, he had over done it in the opposite direction, sport , ing collars of absurd height, and im possible ties, enduring like a martyr the pinch of patent leather shoes a size , too small for him and getting himself a little chaffed by appearing in suits unmistakably in advance of the fash ion. I May, with gentle tact, had changed all this. Never hurting her ardent young lover by open condemnation of his apparel, but by artful suggestions had first roused him to an interest in his attire, then toned down his some what crude tastes, and finally schooled him into that quiet perfection of dress j ing which is the attribute of a gentle man. He hud written for the pattern from Robinson's a few weeks before the important suit should be needed, as he wanted to have May's opinion with regard to the materials. Already the little, laughing, gay girl had begun to be more than a mere piece of loveli ness for his admiring eyes to rest upon. He consulted her about everything. 11c [ had no sisters, and until the last year— when the death of an uncle and the inheritance of a fortune had made him his own master—he had lived a soli tary life in a remote country town with the relation by whose sudden death he was enriched. May Garden, one of the first young ladies he came across in town, had taken his heart by storm. The mixture of frivolity and | sound practical sense in her nature : was exactly what he needed. The one broke the crust of a certain morose ness born of an unloved life, and the ! other steadied the propensities to ex j travagance of taste and living which ■ unexpected wealth had not unnaturally ! aroused. I After that laugh of harshness, which had so startled his servant, Laurence Ord went back to the study of May's j portrait. It was indeed a veritable | "May" face. Cheeks like young roses, ; hair brown as hawthorn twigs, lips which were akin to the deep pink buds of the apple blossom, and eyes Tlnct with azure, like two crystal wells That drink the blue complexion of the skies. These latter laughed back as if in mocking merriment to the hard gray ones which were looking down on them. A sob of anguish broke in a groan from Ord's lips. He tried to tealize that those dancing eyes were closed forever. Tided —tried as many ] and many a bereaved one has striven in vain to do—to grasp the fact that the dear lips would Dever speak again; that no more until the day of resur rection would so much as the faintest color tinge ihe still white face. The picture before him, bubbling over as it was with life and mirth, gave the lie to such a thought. The idea of May- May. the merriest little person in the world, lying cold and silent, was too much for the young man who had last seen her having a wild game with a kitten on the deck of a friend's yacht* He had dreaded that little cruise more than he could say. He had all but asked her not to go; but from this he had refrained, deeming it mere sel fishness. "You don't mind me going, Laurie, do you?" she had asked, when the trip had been suggested, and with a little pleading look in her eyes which was irresistible, especially as he had not yet the absolute right to give or with hold permission. "I'll on ly be gone three weeks, dear, and then—if you still have a mind to—you may take me and keep me forever, and forever, and forever! A large order, Laurie! Shall you want me for so long, do you think?" Ord, never a backward lover, had answered that question by a quietus to the sweet lips which spoke it. He had gone to see her off on board the Orchid, and she had stopped in the middle of one of her airy whirls with the kitten and a piece of scarlet rib bon, to whisper, "Mind you have the patterns ready by the time I come back!" The patterns were ready, but never more thought poor heart-broken I>au rie would May come back to him again. "The yacht Orchid, which was wreck ed last night on the dangerous reef out side Alwyn Bay, is the property of a Mr. Griffiths, of London. All on board were saved except the unfortunate whose body was washed ashore early this morning. It has been identified as that of Miss May Garden." This was the paragraph which had caught the eye of Laurence Ord as he had run over his morning paper at breakfast. Afterward he had come upon the first and longer account, but this was evidently a little paragraph inserted when further information had been received. It was evening now, and as the slow hours passed young Ord began to writhe beneath the weight of anguish which crushed his heart. His senses had at first been blunted by the shock. Now they were awakening to full con sciousness of the immeasurable pain, lie laid the miniature down and began to walk about the room. He moved things here and there. He wound the clock—then his nerveless fingers drop ped it with a crash. He let it lie where it had fallen. He pulled up the blind and looked up at the starry heavens. But it was of no comfort to him to think of May as dwelling among their mysteries. The sight of them did not bring leaps to his scorching eyes, or soften one atom the hard agony which held him in its merciless grip. He had a sort of feeling that little May would rather be with him. He began me j chanically to settle the things on the I table, to fold up the newspapers and I open his. neglected letters. He was | lighting his pain. The letters were read ! without his being a whit the wiser as jto their contents. The packet of pat | terns was the only thing that re mained. With another of those pitiful j laughs he ripped open the envelope. , The laugh changed into an indescriba j ble cry. There were no patterns in i the envelope. Instead there were three ! thick sheets of paper, each of which had "Walter Robinson & Son, Solicit -1 ors, Alwyn Bay," printed upon it. The I writing was a penciled scrawl —a dear, i familiar scrawl. Laurence read it on | his knees, sobbing out his thanks to ■ God. Three sentences and the signa ture ..will sufficiently explain: ! "I was brought ashore half-drowned i * * * Mr. Robinson, a lawyer, has kindly given us shelter. * * * Mr. Griffiths is addressing this. * ♦ i Your loving May." Accounting for Cats' Tastes. ! "Did you ever notice the cats about the oyster stands of the city?" asked a gentleman who takes an interest in zoology. "They are invariably as fat as butter. That is because they get plenty of shell-fish to eat, and, by the way, the fondness of cats for that kind of diet is a mystery which I'd Tike to | hear some evolutionist explain. A cat J will go crazy over a shrimp, and it is | all the same whether it's a city cat or a hayseed cat that never saw water | except in a cistern. It's a taste born j in them, like their fear of dogs, and \ the question is, How the mischief did iliey acquire it? | "According to the evolution theory, ! such traits are inherited and traceable | to conditions away back toward the beginning of things. That would seem I to indicate that the prima] cat was a ' fisher; but how Is one to reconcile the j idea to the instinctive abhorrence of j the tribe for water? Their craving for ! shellfish is certainly so pronounced, | that there must he an excellent reason behind it, and, altogether, it is quite a pretty litte problem for some savant, it is too hard for me."

The figure of Britannia on the coin j of the realm is neither a fancy figure j nor taken from the antique, Accord | ing to the historian Grammont, it is I a full-length portrait of Frances The -1 resa Stuart, Duchess of Lennox, paint ; ed by Lely, and still extant at Lething ton Castle, East L,othian, Scotland. It was Charles 11. who caused this lady to be represented as. the emblematical figure of Britannia. I.argent Sun Dial. The largest sun dial in the world is I Hayou Horoo, a large promontory, ex tending 3,000 feet above the Aegean Seat As the sun swings round the j shadow of this mountain it touches, j one by one, a circle of islands, which act as hour marks. IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN "Dolce far uiente—n sweet doing nothing. I shnll pin that to the cata logue of memory's pictures painted here." She looked up at him and laughed. Their eyes met, then parted, and a vague sense of auticipated loss came to him with the realization of her de parture. "You will forget all this. As for me, I will only be one more in your col lection," lie smiled, evidently a will ing victim. "Collection—of sticks?" she interro gated laughingly. "\ou are unkind," lie protested. "You think, then, my remembrance of a chariniug Winter, like pricked bubbles, will vanish iuto space?" Her face flushed and a shadow deep ened her brown eyes. She caught her breath as she crushed the laces of lier gown against her side tlieu she went on; "We've seen each other every day. if only for a few moments, during nearly two months, meeting with per fect frankness and. I thought, friend ship. if it has all been insincere, I shall forget." "Insincere?" "You have made me care too much. Hut in the North there will be other interests in your life, crowding nie out. until I shall fade into the dim corridors of the past." She noted the square, strong chin and mouth and the little wrinkles that caught around the smiling eyes. He could thus lightly toss aside the recol lection of drives, of wheeling down shaded country roads which were, lie had said, "like a benediction," and the evenings when lie sang with delicate insinuation and emphasis about "you dear," and "love." All these thoughts pricked her mind. If she could only forget him! "Kenlly, you seem most insistent to become merely a polka-dot in my mem ory. Don't you think, even then, I could always spot you?' "Jest if you must; hut stay, all. stay, fair lady, on this perfect day! I prom ise to do anything—say anything, if you will not go." "Yon wax quite poetical," she said, sweetly. "There is the silver moon for the second verse." "Thanks for the suggestion"—rather stiffly. "Come; my hostess will think I am lost." "When a woman will, she will." He reluctantly followed. They walk ed home through the spicy, fragrant pines, whose melancholy soughing till ed them both with an undefined sad ness. "This must be good-by. I leave on the early train to-morrow, and never see people at the station. It makes me blue." She stoyd 011 the step * with one hand xtended. Looking tip at the little re bellious curls blown about under the wide, black hat. he felt an irresistible desire to touch tlieui, but only raised her hand to his lips. "Auf wiederselin. You have given me many happy days, and 1 shall al ways think of you in this lavender gown, me violets of these saucy, nod ling feathers—just as you stand. You will surely come back—to us?" "Perhaps." Smiling bravely, she went wearily up lie steps, then paused. Taking a few >f the violets, she kissed them, and 'uruing, called to him. He came back. Somewhat confused, she pinned them m his coat. "They really belong to you," she ex olaincd. The moon was hidden, and he could lot see how pale she hud grown, (lo ng to her room she took down a photo graph. softly whispering: "To have oved and lost!" Roth hands suddenly Dressed against her throat, and the iears blindly unheeded as she sull ied Oil. He knew he would miss her. She tad been so Jolly; always ready for a lance or a ride; knowing his favorite HUHIC and songs. Now that was all lver. Rummaging through his desk he innlly found a little package of notes. Leaning back in his chair, he carefully -einoved the elastic around them and eisurely read over the lines. Out from lie sheets of one fluttered a withered violet. It fell unnoticed to the floor. In another lie found a tiny spray of jessamine. She had worn a great '.much of it one night. These few he :iad begged for and mid been denied mtil the next morning, when his ro piest was granted with a few penitent words.

Ah, well, she would come again. He replaced the notvs, struck a uatcli, carefully held It to a cigar, and infolded the evening paper. Itlttck Sew a I'oition. The explorations of the Russian Helenllst. Andrussow, have established a very curious fact. The black sea, which in some parts has a depth of more than (1,500 feet, is poisoned by sulphuretted hydrogen wherever the water is deeper than 1,200 feet. This accounts for tin' curious fact that there iu no organic life below that depth, excepting, perhaps, some bacteria of very low order, impregnated with sul phur. The eauses for this phenomen on are explained by the quick outflow of the fresh water through the Bos phorous, while salt water coming from the Mediterranean enters through a deeper current into the depths of the Black sea. The waters 011 the surface are, therefore., controlled absolutely by horizontal currents of considerable force, and vertical currents which might carry the noxious gases from the bottom to the surface and fresh oxygen from ..e surface to the bottom are hardly ever noticeable. The water at great depths is now so saturated with sulphuric gas by the disiutega tion of organic matter sinking to the bottom by reason of its weight that 110 fish or other living being, which needs oxygen for its organic system, can ex ist beyond a stated depth.
