Some of the seats that had been set aside for the lay delegates* who wished to be seated apart from tlte ministers, had been taken by ministerial delegates and a heated discussion arose over the question of compelling the ministers to vacate. The coveted seats were at the rear of the ministers' section and their occupants apparently did not suppose that they -were trespassing on lay territory. The entire forenoon was taken up in-a discussion about the Beating question and it is not yet satisfactorily adjusted. INVESTIGATING IMMIGRATION. ONE KILLED—NUMBER INJURED, Mahone Bees a Chancer to Get Even with Presldeut Uarrlaon. RICHMOND, Va., May 3.—It was given out to-day by some of the Republican leaders that the state convention which meets in Roanoke next Thursday will not, contrary to expectations, instruct for President Harrison. His administration will be indorsed, but the delegates will be left free to act as they see fit at Minneapolis. This course was decided upon after the New York and Ohio conventions did not instruct. Qen. Mahone has long desired a good opportunity to oppose the renomination of Harrison for the reason that the president made Col. James D. Brady, member of the national committee and a bitter enemy of Mahone, collector of internal revenue. Brady has been trying to defeat Mahone in the county conventions, but the latter has received fully nine-tenths of the delegates, and Mahone now sees a chance to show the president that Brady has little influ ence with Virginia Republicans. It is settled that three of the four delegates- at-large will be Mahone, John M, Langston, and Gen. Edgar Allen- Fuller May be a Candidate. NKW YORK, May 3.—A Washington dispatch affirms that John R. McLean is in the city and that last night the Cincinnati Enquirer's Washington correspondent sent to his paper a dispatch to the effect that with ex -President Cleveland's consent Wm. F. Vilas and Don M. Dickinson are at work trying to secure for Chief Justice Fuller the Democratic presidential nomination. Harrity, of Pennsylvania, has, it is alleged, gone into the deal, but in New York the promoters of the May convention of protest against Hill are said to refuse to give up their convention and here is the stumbling block. The argument said to have been used was that to nomi nate Cleveland would require western support which . was not forthcoming. The teat became fixed that Cleveland oonld not avail and it was put to him plainly that if he adbicatod in Fuller's favor, he would make the nominee of the Chicago convention and control the destiny of the national Democracy. Connecticut Republicans. HAjtTFOBn, Conn., May 3.—The Republican state convention to select delegates to the national convention at Minneapolis was called to order this afternoon, and after a brief session adjournment was taken until to-morrow morning, when Senator J. 11. Hawley will bo /made permanent chairman. The resolutioHs will favor v the renomi­ nation of'President Harrison, and the delegates-at-large will probably be Gov. Bulkeley, Hon. James P. Piatt of Meriden, Hon. Edwin Milncr of Plainfield, and ex-Governor Lounsberry of Richfield. Th >n' Fever Among-Russlan .laws' Kxani- ined Into by the Committee. NEW YORK, May B.—The senate committee on immigration and the house committee on immigration and naturalization, which are jointly investigating the subject of immigration with a view to recommending omeasures for its restriction, continued their session in the United States court room. The first witness examined was Dr. W. T. Jenkins, health officer of the port, who was questioned by Senator Chandler as to the circumstances of the typhus fever brought to this country by the steamer Massllia.' The witness said that hu thought the disease had developed sojmewhat before the arrival of the vessel here, but considered that due dilligence and care had been exercised in the examination of ' the immigrants. Dr. Cyrus Bdson : of the health department, was the next witness, lie explained, in reply to Senator Chandler, the very extensive powers of the health board of thiB city. Senator Chandler asked about the physical and sanitary condition of the Russian Jews on board the Massllia. Dr. Edson said it was not uniform. Some of the immigrants were very filthy in person and habits; others wore in a comparatively sanitary condition. In Dr. Edson's opinion, the origin of the typhtis was in one or two undetected cases received on- the CaBsitia at Constantinople, which was noted for its fllth and where typhus fever was very common, "Do you think," asked Senator Chandler, "that if the health officials of the port or the United States surgeon on Ellis Island, had properly examined the Massilia's passengers, they would have detected the cases of typhus?" "I very much doubt it," replied the doctor. 'You blame nobody, then, for letting these cases in on you to take care of?" Nobody — unless, perhaps, the ship's surgeon," said the doctor, "and I do not know that any blame attaches to him." At the close of Dr. Edson's examination, Senator Chandler said the entire committee had been greatly impressed by.tlic'Tnasterly way in which the typhus outbreak had been taken hold of and stamped out in this city. The doctor smiled with pleasure. Anarchist Editor and Publisher Indicted. LONDON, May 3.—The grand jury today returned a true bill against Charles Wilfred Mowbray, publisher, and David John Nichol, editor, of the. anarchist paper Commonwealth, for soliciting and encouraging certain persons unknown to murder certain other persons, to-wlt: "Right Hon.

There was time when an officer afflicted with debt-contracting habits would bo promptly brought to trial, and cases are known where officers were severely dealt with for this offiense; but since the supreme court decided a few years igo that the failure of an army officer to pay his debts did not necessiarily constitute "conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman," and that an officer's pay could not be attached by his creditors, the war department has been handicapped in its efforts to make officers settle up their obligations. Senator Chandler has come to the relief of the department officials. On his motion the senate has adopted an amendment to the army appropriation bill, giving authority for thowithhold- ing of any officer's pay to meet indebtedness either upon the judgment of a court or by order of the secretary of war. This amendment has the hearty approval of the war department officials, and it is believed will become a law. As the matter stands now the only way the war department officials can denl with those who impose upon their creditors is to forward the claims of creditors to the officers concerned and ask for an explanation. If. the debt is acknowledged the department then asks through'an ingeniously worded circular what arrangements he is going to make to pay it. If he specifies a date he must either keep his promise or run the risk of court-martial for lying. Of late, however, the chronic debtors give such evasive answers to the department's circular that they cannot be construed into promises, so that they avoid court-martial for false statements as well as for indebtedness. Hence the anxiety of the war department to have Mr. Chandler's amendment become a law. collect. Forty boxes have so far been in operation, and one-hundred and three more Were put in position today. Postmaster Harlow Is confident the experiment will be a success ami' that it will effect both a saving to the department and n great cmvenience to the public generally. International Association* of Msehlntsts* CHICAGO, May-3.—The annnal convention of the International Association of Machinists, and which wa* formally opened yesterday afternoon at Bricklayers' hall, • got down to solid business to-day.

The unnnal report of the secretary shows that the organization covers every section of this country as well as Mexico and Canada, and that the total membership-is over thirty thousand. The present headquarters are in Richmond, Vu., but an effort is being made tot have them transferred to this city. • Ai number of the delegates are in favor ef the organization identifying itself with the American Federation of Labor. The question of apprentices will be discussed at length. In the southern and western states one apprentice is allowed to evory five journeymen, and it is proposed to make this rule obligatory on the order throughout the country. Resolutions against private detective agencies, which are utilized in labor troubles, and favoring the Chinese exclusion act will .-be submitted. The convention will be in session throughout the week. Freight Rate Adjustments, CINCINNATI, May 3.—The members of the Interstate Commerce Commission, are here to-day for the purpose of considering the case of the Chicago Freight Bureau and the Cincinnati Freight Bureau against the railroads leading into the soath. This Is the case wherein the the jobbing interests of Cincinnati and Chicago ask that the freight rates from southern points be no higher than rates from New York where the distance is equal or in favor of Chicago and Cincinnati. ' As.rates are made New York has the benefit of discrimination against the west, although the distance to the most important point is in favor of Chicago. This discrimination is largely duo to the influence of the southern roads, comprising the Richmond Terminal system, and which are owned mainly in Now York from which city their policy is dictated. The cose is one of the most important ever brought before the Interstate Commerce Commission, and should it be decided in favor of the west, it will result in giving Chicago, Cincinnati and St. Louis control of nearly all classes of southern trade. Interesting- Festal Experiment*. ST. Louis, May 3,—Two very interesting postal experiments are being tried in this city, and upon their result will depend the introduction of some very radical changes in the national postal system. Work is in progress on a system of pneumatic tubes for the prompt delivery of postal matter, Each tube is to be double, and the experimental one wiU be a double tube from the postomoe, a distance of three thousand feet, and It will be easy to send matter from end to end in the space of one minute. This Is the first experiment with pneumatic postal tubes in this country, and the result is looked forward to with much interest 1 by Mr. Wanamaker and others. Another experiment, the pre limlnaries of which have just been completed, Is a lock box to. be placed on toe doors of private houses so arranged that not only will the malt carrier drop the mall in the box when passing, but be will also collect whatever mail the occupants of the house desire to dispatch. Each box has table which can beaten at a distance of one-hundred feet notifying tfcq carrier whether there is any taint r (Jcorge W. Ohlldi (n Chicago. CUICAOO, May 3.—Mr. George W.

This evening, a dinner will be given in his honer by Gen. A. C. McClurg, and for which a large number of invitations have been > issued. ' -' Wanted* a. Name. ST. LOUIS, May 3-—An amusing controversy is going on here as, to the name to be given to the new two million dollar hotel about to be erected with the aid of the Autumnal Festivities association, on the site of the Planter's House, of historic and antebellum fame. A census is being taken of the opinions of the leading men, and upwards of one hundred names have already been strongly urged. It seems more likely that a compromise will be made in favor of the name "Columbia hotel," on the ground that the building will be opened to the public during the world's fair. The strongest opposition to this name is raised by those who prefer to perpetuate the memories of the old house by calling its successor the "New Planter's." Interstate Case* on Trial. CHKSAOO, May 3.—The spring term at the federal coturt opened to -day, and a grand jnry was at once impaanled. Several Important coses will come before the body, especially In relation to violations of the interstate commerce act, and concerning which special agent Kretschman of the commission has been working up considerable evidence. No plea has yet been filed against the Indictments against the Swifts, Freight Agent Briggs and others, which were returned to the court at the last session of the federal grand jury. It is probable, however, that the, accused will enter a plea of not guilty, and allow the canes to taka their course, relying upon the decision of the supreme court in the Counselman case to carry them safely through.
