At last the genius of woman has achieved
a vent and a recognition together with a
business support which must be regarded as
a signal triumph over the obstacles hereto
fore in the way of the gentle sex, wherein,
notwithstanding alleged natural drawbacks
and the ridicule of the masculine opposition,
the sex has ever manifested an undaunted
. It is therefore with an uncommon degree
of satisfaction over a long-deferred yet inev
itable concession that- we , are enabled :to
chronicle that Miss Laura White, an Ameri
can girl, has be'en admitted sto the special
school of architecture in Paris. •
The French paper making the announce
ment informs us and the generally interested
world that a large number
of French women are established
in lucrative and excellent repute as house
builders and decorators. The mayor's house
at Passy, a suburb of Paris, is the work of a
woman throughout, in design, together with
all the carpenter's and cabinet-maker's art.
In this country Buffalo encourages and sup
ports an accomplished woman architect.
It seems to be the initial advantage in a
most promising natural endowment, for
what envious caviller is going to deny that
women are born architects. "What man rash
enough to scheme out the plan of a house
has ever been equal to the emergency of
closets and pantries without the most obvious
female intervention and direction. •;{•*-
No masculine invention was ever quit
capable of discovering the nooks and corners
that can be converted into the desirable re
ceptacle so precious and indispensible
to the comfort of a true woman. The fame
of all the renowned architects from Michael
Angelo to Sir Christopher "Wren, and Pugin
has been one-sided and really easy when 'tis
only a matter of roof and arch and archi
trave in big church structures. But positive
architectural genius with the almost insur
mountable difficulty usually in the way of
such a heavenly heritage in its successful
accomplishment, is displayed by the man
who can compass the greatest number of
closets in the most perversely impracticable
space, to the complete satisfaction of the av
erage woman.
The Shakspearean analyist will yet divine
that when any one of his characters is made
by the tragic exigencies of his muse to seek
the "solitude of his closet" it has a meaning
deeper than the heart discloses, but one
which even at that early day indicated a
recess evolved " from the har
rassed ingenuity of some poor
mortals in the building line, and therefore a
meet refuge for those in perturbation, or the
minority who wished to pray, with a - visible
reminder of another's distressful ordeal be
fore them.
It proves beyond any conjecture that the
torture of the closets was known in those
times, and it does not require the delibera
tion of any Pickwickian club to puzzle over
its significance. However, since civilization
has been housing itself in the fashions known
to different periods of architecture, the fit
ness of women for the mysterious conjuring
of closets in the places where they should be,
but where the obtuse masculine apprehension
has declared could.not be, for the reason
of added expense in changing the original
plan, has been conceded, mostly for peace
sake, at any cost. But now with the vexa
tions of such construction professionally
divided, the 'male house architect instead
of bewailing his fate in having
to encounter the women who
confront every stage of his building progress
with closets, will study the problem as his
professional sisters are doing lest they get
away with the laurels and the profits of their
ingenuity. Competition in the matter of
closets will probably be the decisive element,
and the fair sex has the advantageous start
in a natural turn for such work of devising.
The Globe takes the ground that it need
be no question of sex in art, science, or
work where there is equal and requisite ca
pacity, v :'; .-;;.; v

Hall was appointed a Commissioner of the

The Globe, too, at the time proclaimed
the pluck of the indefatigable Lavinia Good
sell, of Madison, who became a lawyer, and
after admission to the circuit court, and
gaining her first cases, one of them was
carried to the supreme court where her right
to plead was denied on account of her sex.
She reviewed the supreme judge's decision,
overcame him in arguments and then drew
up a bill to the state legislature of Wisconsin
providing that no person - should be denied
admission to the bar on account of sex,
and secured its passage. Her success was
very remarkable in view of the . opposition
she met from first to last. In marked
contrast, is the course of Miss Lelia J. Rob
inson of Boston, who was graduated as No. 4
in a class of thirty-two, at the Boston Univer
sity Law School, and then asked the Supreme
court for admission to the bar. Her appli
cation was denied.
Miss Robinson thereupon,realizing the ob
stinate and unyielding nature of Bay State
prejudices, wisely took an office in Pemberton
Square and advertised her intention 'of de
vorting herself to those branches of law
business which do not involve appearing in
the court-room, and for which a formal ad
mission is not neccessary.
Two women are now licensed as masters
of steam vessels. "

ceded to the dear sex, is that of architect,

Ohio is rather quiet just at present as to poli
tics, and the days of her leadership seem to be,
temporarily at least, ended. But in Borne other
matters she comes to the front. It is notorious
that divorces are as readily obtainable there as in
Indiana or Connecticut. . This free and easy sys
tem enabled Major Andrew Grove, a rich old
. chap of the same age as : Sam. Tilden, to get a.
divorce from his wife who sewed on his buttons
and darned his stockings for over forty . years.
No sooner was the old fellow released than he
made love to the widow Armstrong, who agreed
to marry him for $4,000 spot cash. Just before
the happy day the old Major made the acquaint
ance •'" of the ; widow Ferguson, a lively,
lovely lady who had survived the torments
of ■ . more . than seventy Ohio winters. .-. It
was a case of love at first sight, and what did the
old geese do but elope, going to Sharon, Pa.,
the Gretna Green of that region, where they were
properly married. The widow Armstrong heard
of her rival when too late, and the only recourse
for her was to bring a suit against her fickle
lover for $s,ooo—that being intended to cover the
$4,000 agreed on, with a $1,000 added as a balm
to her disapointed expectations. i. Such' conduct
would not be tolerable anywhere but in the privi
leged state of j Ohio, and it is to be hoped the
widow Armstrong will be able to recover the full
amount she claims. M The frisky boys there must
be taught a lesson. ."■"■;. >k y .V -■

Grrunderson Found Guilty ot Man
slaughter—A Polygamist
Comes to Grie£ Etc.
The jury in the case of J. L. Oleson, the too
much married Swede, brought in a verdict yes
terday of guilty of polygamy as charged in .the
indictment. It was proved that he had taken a
wife in Michigan several years ago, and deserted
her to form a matrimonial alliance with a St.
Paul girl.
. Lloyd Porter, who, while firing at the bar
keeper in a Jackson street saloon, shot and
killed John Neary, who was passing through the
room, by his counsel, yesterday, moved a con
tinuance of his trial to the next term of the dis
trict court, which was promptly denied by Judge
Brill. : ■ /■ ■ ■ - ;
The trial of Martin Grunders'on for the killing
of John Kosk in the heat of passion with blows
from his fist was brought on, the state being
represented by County Attorney Egan and the
defense by Thomas O'Brien, Esq. The indict
ment charged manslaughter in the second
degree, '■;. but it was not ; sustained
by ■ the ; ' evidence, ' and at 9 o'clock
last evening, after being out four hours, the jury
brought in a verdict of manslaughter in the
fourth degree, the severest penalty ■ for which is
a sentence of two years to the penitentiary and
the lightest one year's incaceration in the county
A brief history of this case is that Grunderson
and Kosk sawed wood and did odd jobs on the
railroads in copartnership until about a week be
fore the killing. Grunderson boarded with Kosk
and wife, his own wife being dead, and his three
children not living with him. Kosk was a heavy
tippler of raw alcohol, and that was the cheap
stimulus used very freely by all parties in the
domicile.. On the morning of Dec •30
all hands were drunk on this liquid,
including a visitor named Martenson, who alone
saw the fight between the two men. There was
a fuss about Gaunderson's giving the deceased
money to buy more alcohol. After stumbling
about the house and falling down several times
he and Grunderepn had a fight, which ended with
the latter' striKing him heavy blows in the face,
breaking his nose and injuring the I cartileges
thoreofs from which wounds he began to bleed,
and profusely bled until the time of his decease
that evening.
The theory of the state and of Drs. Markoe
and Witherlie, who made a post mortem exami
nation, was that these blows on the nose pro
duced a concussion of the brain of the character
of apoplexy, and that through them death was
caused. They, however, admitted that the con
stant tippling of alcohol might bring about the
rupture of the inflnitessimal blood vessels found
to be thus affected; and which in this
instance by flooding the brain, caused death. The
doctors further testified that the deceased was
healthy as to his internal organs, and that there
were no contusions on his head or body other
wise than upon his nose, to produce such a state
of things as discovered by them on the inner
wrap of the brain.
As an old gentleman remarked who had sat
a silent spectator in court while the criminal
trials had been in progress this "ended the gist of
trials for the week, all of . which had a direct or
indirect cause from strong drink." ' '
The case of young Herman Smith for the forg
ing cf aBS order will be taken up at 9:80 Monday
morning. .

Ending Where It Began, ; In Favor

Furnace. \ .
The New last of Salaries and the New List
. .of Teachers Adopted,
An adjourned meeting of the board of educa
tion was held last evening, when - there were
present Inspectors Officer, Berlandi, Dreher,
Hamilton, Minor Glesen/Athey, Ohage, Wamp
ler and Mr. President. ' .
. Inspector Oppenheim came in immediately
after the roll call. . A . ,•
I That the principal business was. "furnaces"
was very apparent from the number of stove men
occupying seats outside the rails.
On motion of Inspector Officer the committee
on furnaces for Adams school was called on to
Inspector Minor read a report signed only by
himself, and consequently a minority report. . It
described the furnaces examined and reported
them all good—none alike, none . perfect, but all
good. But recommending the. Walterstorf &
Moritz as being, as good as any and cheaper than
all. He also read a communication ; from the
Pruden company offering to put in a furnace,
and if found inferior to the Salamander to take
it out and replace it with a Salamander.
Inspector Officer stated he could not agree
with the conclusion arrived at by the chairman
of the committee. '• '
Inspector Oppenheim moved that the report
be not adopted.', •
The motion was carried.
Inspector Oppenheim then moved that the ten
der of Prendergast Bros, for $651 be accepted.
Inspector Minor thought the furnace business
had been carried on to such a j length that he
thought everybody was tired of it. The docu
ment of the Pruden company should come before
the board. He thought if it was not considered
the law for advertising should be repealed. Gen
tlemen came here and offer to put in the same
furnace for less money, but it would appear that
no one but Prendergast Brothers had any show
at all. ■ ■: ■-■.-.-
The roll being called on the motion of Inspector
Oppenheim, Inspector Ohage spoke strongly in
favor of accepting the offer of the Pruden com
pany and voted against the motion.
The motion was lost. For the motion—Oppen
heim, Officer, Athey, Hamilton, Berlandi, Mr.
President. Against— Minor, Wampler,
Giesen, Dreher.
Inspector Hamilton did not care who furnished
the furnaces, but he, Mr. Hamilton, had had
more experience than any one else; he did not
want to try experiments. He knew the Sala
mander was the best; bonds and guarantees
amount to nothing. Prendergast had guaranteed
to do certain work and they had done it; others
had guaranteed but none had fulfilled their prom
ises. Mb
Inspector Gilbert said Inspector Hamilton had
not stated the matter correctly. Wilson Brothe*'
furnaces had done better work than Prendergast
Inspector Officer rose to say Walterstorf &
Co. were willing to give their check for
thousand dollars as a bond seemed to be ignored.
The board asked for bids and bonds, and he
was of the opinion that the board should
standby their advertisement. He agreed upon
the facts of the report but not in the conclusion ;
he did not dispute the fact that the other fur
naces may do the work as well and are as dur
able as the Boynton, but he knew what the
Boynton was.
Inspector Minor did not believe in repudiating
offers and going for Satemanderfirst and last and
always, while they went through this clap trap,
and nonseose of advertising. It was said bonds
are useles but checks are not worthless. These
men he said come here and make an offer and
bind themselves to carry it out and he thought
they were entitled to a respectful consideration.
On motion of Inspector Giesen the motion was
Inspector Gilbert said that he had moved for a
committee to examine the furnaces and he, Mr.
Gilbert, had had no opportunity of examining
the fnrnaces, being left off the committee, and he
would like the report jof that committee read
to guide him in his vote.
" Inspector Minor rose and explained that his
was the only report and the other members had
made a verbal statement.* ' '< ■ "•> ••- ■••
« Inspector Openheim asked if Walterstorf's
was the lowest bid.
Inspector Minor stated it was the lowest for
furnaces offered, Messrs. Prendergast not show
ing their ."Yorkshire."
Inspector Gilbert insisted upon a report from
the committee.
; On the roil being called the motion.was carried
with nine for and three against. For the motion
i. c. to accept the Prendergast bid, Oppeuheim,
Giesen, Officer, Athey, Gilbert, Hamilton, Ber
landi, Dreher, Mr. President.
Against—Ohage, Minor, Wampler.
Airanii. report.
The superintendent asked what number of
annual reports should be printed.
On motion of Inspector Hamilton it was agreed
that 1,000 copies be ordered printed. Inspector
Berlandi voting in the negative.
Inspector Dreher reported for the
committee on German recommended the
continuation of German in the public
schools. The report states that the system
was open to severe criticism and the result was
anything but satisfactory, and in order to correct
the deficiency the committee recommended the
engagement of one or more graduates from the
German-American institute, of Milwaukee, and
the appointment of a superintendent of German.
The report was accepted and referred back to the
committee for more particulars of their plan. ]

Ail other salaries to remain the game as be
Inspector Oppenheim was against; increasing
salaries in times when business men were on the
point of '. lowering salaries. If increasa was in
tended— he wished it to be understood that
he did not oppose good pay— thought the in
crease should begin with the ' teachers rather
than the principals, and he moved the salaries
remain as last year.

The Bradstreet Agency Make a Be
port Which President Harris
Promptly Refutes. ?;;,
New Yoek, June —Concerning the report
in Bradstreet's for to-day to the effect that the
$125,000,000 earned by the Northern Pacific com
pany for the year ending June 30, 1884, were
not suflicient to pay the working {expenses of
66 % percent, and fixed charges, etc. President
Harris, of the Northern Pacific ■' company, said
to a reporter of : the Evening , Poet, that Brad
street's might just as well have assumed that the
working expenses were 96 instead of 66 per cent.
As a matter of fact, he said, the ' working ex
penses were not nearly so large as 66 per cent.,
and unless something: very, unforseen occurred,
the company would have . a handsome : surplus
after paying • rentals . and all fixed charges.
The road had been so thoroughly built : and the
equipment so excellent , that the expenses had
proved to be unusually light, y Another officer of
the Northern Pacific said the earning capacity of
the road had exceeded ] all expectations, and if
the earnings of ■ the year ■ ending Monday ware
between twelve and a half and thirteen millions,
as now almost certain,; the future :• had never
looked brighter for the stockholders. Judging
from the reports already received, the operating
expenses of the first year, always a trying one
for a railroad, would not much exceed 50 ' per
cent., and there had only been nine months of
thorough business. In regard to the gale Thurs
day at the stock exchange of the Northern Pacific
and Oregon • Transcontinental shares, deposited
with the banking house of Kuhn, Loeb & Co.
as security for a loan, the ] officers \ and ' counsel
of the company hold ■, that ' Kuhn, ; Loeb & Co.,
had no right to close out the loan under the • cir
cumstances, and that the '■■ firms \ action was . the
cause of the serious decline? ■ in . Northern - Puci-

Everybody the Architect of Ms Own
Payments- , '/'
To the Editor of the Globe: , ■ 'V
. It is an axiom iin \ insurance that everybody
makes their own rate, of insurance. The man
who builds a perfect building, puts on approved
appliances for the prevention of fires, j and . occu
pies his building for non hazardous purposes se
cures a low rate ; while he who builds carelessly,
as cheap as possible, a building with all sorts of
deficiencies, neglects to put on preventive ap
pliances, fills bis building with
hazardous - tenants, as a legitimate se
quence will pay a high rate for
insurance. The common council must have had
this in view when they passed our building law.
See Sec. 35, building law. All business ' build
ings being more than fifty-six feet high, covering
an ar.ea of more than 5,000 superficial feet; also,
all buildings exceeding eighty feet in heighth,
shall have a two ond one-half .. inch (or larger)
metalic stand pipe within or near the front wall,
extending above the roof, and arranged so that
engine hose can be attached from the street: all
hose couplings shall conform to the size and
pattern adopted by the fire department."
■ Also Sec. 44, "A1l stores, store houses, mills,
and manufactories that may hereafter be errected
in St. Paul, which are more than two stories high
shall have doors, blinds or shutters made of lire
proof fciaterial. On every window and entrance
where the same do not open • On a street, or one
within fifty feet of any opposite building; when
in any such building, the shutters, blinds, or
doors cannot be put on the outside, they shall be
put on the inside, and hung upon iron hinges,
or frames independent of any wood work—shut
ters above the first story to be arranged so that
they can be opened from outßide—Prismatic
lights in iron frames shall be regarded as equiv
alent to iron shutters.
That every man makes his own rate, is more
apparent in the case of manufacturing risks,
especially woodworking establishments, than in
mercantile. The nature of the business carried
on is more hazardous, and carelessness in • man
agement carries more hazard with it, on account
of the combustible nature of the materials used
in the business. ";
The common council was wise in its provisions
in regard to the class of risks. See section 48,
building law. "No building within the limits of
the city of St. Paul, shall be,, used or occupied,
in. whole or in part, for any "of the
trades or occupation hereinafter men
; tioned, to-wit: Carpenter or cooper shops,
wagon . or carriages manufacturies,' cabinet
and fnrniture factories, wood turning and veneer
ing works, agricultural implement manufactories,
box or shingle factories, or any other wood
working shop, unless such building so occupied
shall have in connection with it a brick or fire
proof vault of sufficient capacity to contain all
shavings, sawdust, chips or other light combusti
ble refuse ' connected therewith and all such
shavings and other light combustible refuse shall
be removed daily from such premises to such
vault. In no event shall proprietors, owners or
lessees of such manufactories allow combustible
refuse to accumulate upon any lot or in any
buildings unless stored in a fire proof vault." J
How many of our wood working establishments
in this city have complied with this law of build
ing fire proof vaults, and how many who have
fire proof vaults follow the law as enacted, and
still every one of them is or will be charged for
this deficiency in their premium rate, and the
building inspector will be called upon to enforce
the provisions of the law.
All wood-working establishments should be re
quired to fully osserve the ordinances, and in ad
dition those to should provide themselves with
all approved appliances for the extinguishment
of —standpipes, steam jets, mercurial
alarms and fire extinguishers. Many of our
wood-working establishments are in close prox
imity to the business portion of fhe city, and
•hazzard large values in property; hence the
greater necessity of requiring strict measures of
protection in them against fires.
What is true in individual cases is also true as
regards cities and communities. Efficient fire
department, with all necessary apparatus and
appliances, a thorough fire alarm system, with a
sufficient number of alarm stations, a well regu
lated police department with the necessary num
ber of patrolmen, good and sufficient water
works, a fire limit large enough to protect the
business center where large values are concen
trated. Such a law that it cannot be violated
by any one, or opened as a favor j to any
and a thorough enforcement of the laws and ordi
nances, all tend to produce low rates of insur
ance. Are .these matters attended to in this city
j as they should be? Are our laws and ordinances
enforced? Out of twenty-two recent ' applica
tions for permission to erect frame buildings
within the territory covered by our fire ordinance
twenty-one were promptly granted. The ordi
nance requiring the removal of lumber and wood
yards by Sept. 1, 1882, from within
the fire limits, has not been enforced,
and new wood and lumber yards have been es
tablished within such limits during that time.
The fire warden has never been instructed as to
his duties or furnished with a copy of ordinances
under which the city pays him to work, and to
day does not know how far he is permitted to go
in the enforcement of the ordinances for the pre
vention of fires, hence we have recently had sev
eral small fires, resulting from stove pipes
through the roof without proper protection. It
is true that the actual damage has been small,
but it ! costs from $20 to $25 to turn out
the fire department to support these
small * fires which would not
have occurred had the fire warden been enabled
to enforce the ordinances which is supposed to
exist against this prevalent practice in our city.
Are we as a city doing what should be done
for protection and can we expect low rates of in
surance until the evils complained of are re
moved? With the very large increase in fire
losses during the last year, a large proportion of
which resulted from . faulty construction of
buildings, and the evident want of such protec
tion against fire as is expected in cities of the
size of St. Paul, leads companies to urge an in
crease in the rate Of premiums which must
come soon, unless measures are taken to secure
better protection through all departments of the
city government.

The Philadelphia Times Out for Ran
dall and the Sun Praises
One Story of New York Plotting Against
Cleveland Fully Contra
General Swaim'g Friends rnavailiugly
■ Try to Save Him From
Court Martial.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.l
■Washington, June 28.—Since Cleveland's pre
ponderance has somewhat subsided Randall's
friends have become active, urging that he Is the
strongest candidate to nominate. ; They say the
Cleveland boom is busted and the Randall boom
gathers from its ruins. The combination against
Cleveland is generally believed to have been the
work of Randall's friends, and it is thought If
they succeed in getting him out of the way they
will begin as vigorously to attack the next
strongest man. Their design v: is tc
knock out the field in detail.
They think if they can defeat the strong by com
bining with the weak, the latter will be easily
enough gotten rid of when the. proper time
comes. To-day there was decidedly . ..
Copies of the Philadelphia Times were in great
demand at the capitol, in consequence of a lead
ing editorial declaring boldly for Randall's nom
ination. Editor McClure says in conclusion:
If New York shall decide to make herself prac
tically voiceless in the duty and opportunity so
generously accorded her, there is one man that
towers above all as a leader for .the Democrats,
That man is Samuel J. Randall. He and hil
friends were ready to ©bey any united command
from the Democrats from the Empire state, but
with New York distracted by wrangling spoils
men, the nomination which would best rally th»
friends of honest government in every section
of the Union is the one that leads in every battle
in congress ... for public honesty and
against every aim and effort
of spoilsmen. He has exceeded 1 the
service.of Blame in congress and with equal pow
er and equal energy is as poor in fortune as the
day he entered the house, and rich only in the
record of stubborn integrity that will be lus
trious when the spoilsmen shall have perished.
His nomination would transfer the battle from
New York to Pennsylvania with the electoral
vote of the great Keystone state trembling in the
balance. The issue and the man are found in
Randall and only the man who made the issue
can triumph in 1884."
The Sun Dpublishes two edttorials, the first
double leaded, in which Randall is extolled 01
his steadfast adherence to economical adminis
tration of government and firm resistance to ex
travagance of appropriations, from which he was
not forced by the votes of Democrats who should
have stood by him, "A man with the reputation
of power and uprightness of Randall," Dana
says, "is likely to gain friends at the approach of
any dangerous crisis. Those who were opposed
to him when the skies were clear," (meaning
the Morrison and Carlisle supporters) bury their
hostility When they find themselves in trouble
from which they cannot extricate themselves."
• The politicians think it is contemplated in
event of New York not presenting a candidate
to transfer the fight to Pennsylvania, which they
think, with Randall's nomination and consider
ing the quarrel between the Cameron and anti-
Cameron factions, might be carried by the De
mocracy easier than New York.
A special to the Evening Star from New York,
says: .'*/,%:
--"Chairman Barnmn, of the Democratic na
tional committee, and Smith Weed, visited Til
den yesterday and again to-day. Little or noth
ing could be ascertained as to the result, or if
anything had been accomplished in the way of
agreeing on a ticket or reviving the old
ticket. Barnum insists Tilden should be
nominated in spite of his declination. The gos
sip about the Fifth Avenue hotel is very much
in favor of the old ticket. ■" Gov. Hoadly ! and
Jno. Bookwalter, of Ohio, Gen. Gordon, of
Georgia, Roswell P. Flower and Attorney Gen
eral O'Brien, of this state, are among the Demo
crats who are in constant intercourse with each
other at this hotel. The feeling against Cleve
land is gro«ing. Gen. Slocum says it is certain
he will hot be nominated. The strong support
which Mayor Low and his fellow Republican*
in Brooklin promise Cleveland has injured him
with Democrats. A general mass meeting of all
the trades unions against Cleveland is forming.
Meetings were held last night in various portions
of tho city, the one at the Clarendon hall being
unusually large. A committee was appointed to
prepare a resolution expressive of true sentiment
of the working classes of New York against the
nomination of Cleveland at Chicago."
Senator Gorman, of Maryland, denied to-day
any connection with the alleged conference in
New York between Democrats for the purpose of
driving out Cleveland. He stated he had not ex
changed a word with Ben Bntler for two years.
Gorman said: "Barnum, chairman of the
national Democratic committee, is making
arrangements for the detail work of the conven
tion. He has been quite sick. As
I am head of the congressional committee
he wants me and several others to go out to
assist him in that work. He is not able to at
tend to it all. Several of us talked about thati
but I did not see either John Kelly, Butler, or
Gen. Pryor. It is preposterous to talk of our
holding a conference to fix up the nominations,
at Chicago. We couldn't do it if we wanted it.
I assure you there is nothing in it." . ':
Two reports on the fortification bill were made
to the house to-day, the majority being presented
by Mr. Horr and the minority by Mr. Randall-
Mr. Horr says he will not lug politics into his
speech in support of the majority bill unless it is
forced upon him. He says he will simply call
upon Democrats to lay aside politics and vote for
what he deems the good of the country, in pro
viding needed appropriations for the defense of
our long and unprotected coast line.
Representative Calkins headed a delegation
which called at the White house to induce the
president to abandon the court martial of Judge
Advocate General Swaim. The president was
firm in his refusal and expressed surprise that
an officer in General Swaim's position did no*
urge an immediate trial.
In view of an early adjournment the president
has concluded not to take up summer quarters at
the Soldiers Home until the session of congress
is over. The committee appointed to ascertain
if Hon. W. H. English had used improper means
on the floor of the house. to seat his
son . as a member from Indiana
decided to-day -to reopen the cat*.
When Mr. Millard asked English,' during his ex
amination before the committee, if he had gone
to members at their houses to urge them to vote
for his son, an objection was made, and the
question ruled out. After the case had closed
the Democratic members thought the;; matter
over and decided that failure to answer the
question would be looked upon as an admission
that the accusation was true, and it would be
unjust to English not to let him reply. On Tues
day next the case will be reopened and English,
put on the stand.
