Grave Senators Can IMay.

WASHINGTON. D. C. . April 21.
Senators say they nro going to hnvo a sen-
Bon of from four to six weeks of play com-
parcd to the work that usually devolves upon
them nt this period in a session. Tlioy do
not intend to exert themselves very much
during the debate on the tariff bill In the
, liotiso , as the senate Is already far ahead of
the lower branch < Jf congress. Thoplcuro-
linoumoiiln bill will odcupy most of their
attention next week , the Plumb land forfeit
ure bill coming up in the morning hour
cnnh dny. Tlio fisheries treaty Is to rocclvo
much attention in secret session , the rosolu-
, tlon to consider it In open session having
failed to get a fair hearing , whereas Us
author , Senator Klddlebcrgcr , is in bad
'liumor , and says ho will make no secret of
Anything said In secret session upon the sub
ject , and that ho will continue his light'for
I open sessions , the * same as if his resolution
liad not been offered.
An extraordinary meeting of the commlt-
s- tco on ways nnd means has boon called for
Monday morning , for the purpose of discuss
ing the question of fixing a limit to the dot -
t > ito on the tariff bill. The democratic caucus
this week , it will bo remembered , instructed
the majority of the committee to consult
With the minority , nnd if possible , ngrco
Upon n period when the general debate should
close and the hill bo taken up uuJcr tlio flvo
TOlnuto.rulo. The democrats want to close
the dobata on the main question within ten
days , whlln the republicans say it should run
tot least thrco weeks , and It looks as though
they will have their way about It. The bill
Will take up as much time , or more , under
"tho flvo minute rule and this figuring makes
' nlmost Impossible to get a vote before the
St. Louis convention , which the demo
crats declare they must have.
.An amicable nrrangomcntmay bo reached on
plonday as to the time when the bill shall bo
taken up under the flvo-minuto rule , for do-
pate by sections und amendment , but there
-will como a row sooner or later. The debate
vpnust bo cut short at some period if a iinul
jroto on the measure Is taken before the dcm-
Ocratlo national convention. When that Is
torcclpitatcd the anti-tariff reformers will *
glkcly stand together nnd refuse to amend
find vote solidly against it. This will of
course dolcat the bill. It is understood that
jtho tariff debate will proceed on Tuesday and
that the bill wlll.not frequently bo set aside
( for anything ulso. There is no disposition in
pny quarter to antagonize it with appropria
tion bills or any measure , and for the pur-
tooaoof retaining Its strength to the fullest
' possible degree Its. advocates arc willing to
Bacrlltco anything.
The recent turns taken in political affairs
nv the Now York Sun Imvo attracted a great
Ooal of attention In Washington , nnd ulso
caused distress amongtho democrats. A few
( days iigo It printed three or four columns of
extracts from newspapers to show the un-
bopularity of the Mills tariff bill , and editor
ially . .wr/Aca the party nnd the president
against free trade tendencies In view of the
labor vote. To-day it printed Chairman
Mills' speech in full , occupying a whole page
less a half column. Editorially the Sun calls
( attention to the subject and asks a careful
Btudy by everybody , especially by the workingmen -
ingmen of the country. Then It significantly
eays : "Mills is ono of the ablest and most
uncompromising advocates of free trade that
lias over been in congress , and while his bill ,
combined with the bill reducing the Internal
revenue which ho has also presentee ] , departs
very radically nnd widely from the policy
Which Mr. Cleveland contended for In his
annual message , the popular interest In the
views hoadvocates is widespread and intense ,
nnd most Justly so. " ) WITH 11UM.ETS.
The house passed a bill granting a pension
Of 8100 a month to'Charles H. Smith , of the
Sovcnty-slxth New York volunteers , which
brings out u most thrilling war incident.
Binith participated in ten of the principal
battles of the rebellion nnd emerged from
thorn without n scratch. On the llrstof July ,
1863 , nftor lighting two years , ho wont Into
notion at tlio battle of Gettysburg , and it aj > -
nears that all that could have befallen him
miriug the entire activity of the past turned
tapon him at ono moment. During the fore-
boon of that day ho was evidently picked out
us a target by a largo number of the oppos
ing enemy. One bullet passed through his
Jeft thigh , another entered his loft groin ,
passed through the body and came
put nt the right hip , n third entered above
the left hip , passed through the body and
fractured the spinal column , but still tlioy
wore not through with him. As holayprono
upon his face n shell burst over him and tore
pffa largo portion of his right buttock. In
that condition ho lay upon Iho battle Held for
( four days , without any assistance or nourish-
tnent whatever. Ho spent the rest of the
war time In a hospital. Ho has n widowed
mother whom ho will support out of the

* Ono of tlio leading Now York democrats
has Just arrived in Washington and reports
.that Chairman Barnum will refuse to servo
at the head of the national democratic com-
'nilttuo during the approaching campaign , bc-
cause ho regards Cleveland's position on the
tariff as unpopular and likely to lead to do-
feat. Uiirnum 1ms Indicated this much and
.says that not only will Now York nnd Now
'England ' bo placed m Jeopardy , but also two
'elates ' .in the south West Virginia nnd
forth Carolina. Illinium says lilnino's let-
or of diminution amounts to nothing , and
tint that thu republican ticket will road
Jlalno nnd Harrison. This is having a do-
hrcsslng effect on eastern .democrats here ,

much more serious condition in Germany
than the cablegrams in the press indicate , or

For Party First.
WASHINGTON , April 20. [ Special to the
Bnn.l Senator Gorman , the spoil boss
of Maryland , , is industriously engaged
driving the democratic members from
his state into line on the Mills tariff bill. Dur
ing the past four or flvo years the mining and
manufacturing Industries ot Maryland have
developed so immensely that the people are
advocating the uialntalnanco of the present
tariff laws , and.ft majority of them are op
posed to the Mills bill. Gorman , himself , is
largely interested In mining in his state , and
his personal and business , us well as political
friends , are strongly opposed to the proposi
tions in the tariff bill now before
the house ; but Gorman is nn administra
tion man , and for the sake of poll-
tics , and at the direction of the president , ho
Is compelled to work for the party In oppo
sition to his private interests nnd individual
friends. Ho is engaged in cracking the whip
ever the heads of the democratic members
in the house from Maryland , and since lie
lias been given absolute control of the fed
eral patronage for the state , ho is expected
to wheel them into lino. It is ono of the
clearest cases in congress of self-sacriflco In
tlio interest of the unpopular attempts of tlio
administration that can bo found , and will
bo found , and will undoubtedly } -id to the
downfall of the boss.

Two more runs wore scored in the second
on n homo run drive by Vcach and four sin
gles. In the seventh thrco singles nnd a

ciphth the Omaha team went to pieces nnd
allowed St. Paul to score three unearned
runs , making a total of eight , half of them
Omaha scored flrst In the fourth inning on

NEW YOUK , April Bl. [ Special Telegram
lo the 13EE. ] Although thcro have been a
number of showers and the nights have been
qultn cold , the last week has not been unfav
orable for training , and at all the tracks good
work has been done. At Shccpshcad Hay
every thing Is being overhauled nnd put In
shape. At the Hrooklyn track the carpen
ters and painters nro as busy as bees , and
there will bo many Improvements to open the
eyes of visitors , when the meeting begins.
At Jerome park Mr. Ulmont'n now stable Is
In a forward state nnd the now grand stand
Is undergoing thorough repairs. There Imvo
been arrivals of fresh stock at each track ,
nnd things look qulto different from what
they did a couple of weeks since.
The rciHirt was qullo freely circulated lait
wock and found Its way Into print to the ef
fect that Htiuovcrhnd pulled up lame after ono
of his gallops but nn authoritative denial was
procured from headquarters before the Ink
was hardly dry. Hanover Is still taking his
work and the chances are that ho will
came to the post this spring , but , of course
llko many others ho Is likely to go off his
legs nt any time , nnd It Is possible , perhaps
probablethat ho will not stand up throughout
the campaign. Hauovor has boon strongly
backed recently for the Hrooklyn handicap ,
nnd still rules the favorite nt 0 to I. A
horse that should not bo slighted for this
event is the speedy Saxony. Ho is probably
moro forwa * ! hi his preparation than any
other eastern candidate , and is looking and
going well.
Another phase Is given to the Kentucky
Derby by news published in a dispatch from
Washington to the effect that Green Morris
has signified his definite Intention , if all goes
well , of shipping Sir Dlxou to Louisville to
participate In that event. As is well known ,
Sir Dixon wns nil the winter a favorite for
the race , nnd It is only recently that ho has
pouo back on the betting , on the supposition
that ho would not bo a contestant. The ship
ping of the colt from Mobile to Washington ,
taken In connection with Morris' statement
when in the south that ho was not likely to
try this year for the Derby , put the book
makers off their guard and caused them to
lengthen the odds , and perilous by this time
some of them have cause for regret
for so doing. On last year's pub
lic form Sir Dixon should , of
course , win If ho starts , and all accounts
ngroo that ho baa developed into a roinark-
nbly handsome racer , that gives every hull-
cation ot fulfilling the promise of last season.
He will almost certainly start in ono or more
of the events , for which ho is entered at
"Washington , and whicli seem to bo at his
Nothing but good reports come from Old

2'J , which reports : "Baldwin's string of
thirty horses arrived this morning. All are
in good condition. " Everything is ready at
West Side park for the meeting , which begins -

that the meeting will bo the best ever held nt

A Washington special to tho.Chicago
Herald details the following jntorobting
account of a Yankee mate stealing- his
vessel and sailing under an improvised
black llu : United States Consul C. R.
GrcaUiouso , of Kuimgown , Japan , lias
notillctl the state department that an
American warship is now cruising the
Japan sea in search of the Ainorieun
schooner Nereid , with which James
Forbes , a Yankee sailor , recently ran
away from the port of Guiun , Japan.
The Nereid is n trim nnd tight little
schooner , of about thirty tons burden ,
owned in the United Statennd ; , until
sui/.cd by Forbes , sailing under the
American Mag. Her captain , Charles
Johnson , hails from Massachusetts , and
his little vessel was trading in'the is
lands south of Japan. One line morning
in March lastCaptain Johnson anchored
on" Guam , leaving tlio mate in charge
of the schooner , wont nbhoro to buy a
box of hard taclc. While lie was
absent the first mate , Forbes ,
served out to himself a
quadruple allowance of grog ,
under the intluonco of which ho
conceived the idea of becoming n buo-
cnneor on his own account. With vis
ions of the glorious career of Captain
Kiihl flitting thro'igh his befuddled
bruin , ho wont below and brought up a
loaded shotgun , which ho playfully
pointed at the Japanese cook and stew
ard of tlio Noroid. Tlio cook's yellow
countenance turned white as his flowing
shirt and running to tlio side of the
vessel ho cast himself into the ftou un
mindful of the sharks , whoso fins could
ba fioon nbovo t-h i water on every sido.
Ho was quickly followed by a Japanese
sailor , wno preferred the chance of'life
to the cor tin nty of currying u skull full
of holes , and the two swum safely to the
shore. Left in sole command of the
schooner , Forbes ordered dis llttlo
crew of shivering , chattering Japanese
on dock , and pulling down the stars
and stripes , run up a section of an
umbrella cover whicli did duly us the
black ensign of his newly appointed pro
fession. Then setting all sail ho shot
out of the harbor in quest of prizes , pre
sumably bullion-laden junks und beau
tiful but hapless maidens of high de
gree. Fukuda , the cook , and his com
panion lost no time in hunting up Cup-
tain Johnson and acquainting him with
Iho facts. Tlioy set out for the Ameri
can consulate , where they reported the
occurrence to Consul General Greut-
houso. Tlio consul at once communi
cated the facts to Commander Glass of
the United States steamer Monocacy ,
which happened to bo lying in that
port. A circular was then prepared de
scribing Forbes und his little craft and
sent to all the ports of China und Japan.
The monocracy promptly weighed
anchor fttid slatted In pursuit of tlio
pirato. Uj ) to latest accounts Porb9 had
not boon overhauled.
