Some tinio ago thcro died in Adrian

pasha governor general of the valayet,
or province, bordering on tho Black sea.
Hadshi Izzet was an ideal Turk of tho

years at the head of that important prov

years ago and rapidly climbed to places
commensurate with his namo and the in

death he was tho dean of tho Turkish
I Almost countless aro tho anecdotes
told of tho pasha, who was known and
respected from the Turkish Dan to the
Turkish Beersheba. His hatred of the
"Christian dogs," as ho always called
tho people of tho west, was boundless.
It was invariably his custom, when
forco of circumstances obliged him to
give his hand to a " dog, " to wash it
upon withdrawal while in, the presence
of his guest. It is said that" Hadshi
Izzet lr,id aside his habit only once.

European countries was obliged to seek
an audience with the saltan's lieutenant
in governmental affairs. Ho had al

treated a second time if he could possi

for this reason had a great advantage
over many of his colleagues.
When the servant of Hadshi Izzet re
ceived him at tho pqlaco threshold, hp

New York newspaper has included him
in a group of portraits of nine Democratic
senators whom it charged with being
"obstructionists ' to the tariff bill. Mr.
i Berry denied he had ever been anything
but an earnest advocate of the bill, and
on all occasions had advised its speedy
report to the senate without modifica
tion. His explanation was followed
by explanations from Messrs. Faulkner,
Harris, McLaurin and Morgan, which
led to much amusement in the senate !

Washington, March Y. An exciting
