How Evening 1 Sessions Were Conducted a Few Years Ago. Clovur Way In Which Senator »olj>l» Made a Victim of Sonntor Vimoe—Apol- LlimvIH ivnd Coltl Ten by tlie Gallon. [Special Wasnington Letter.] . The Fifty-fourth congress has man- ivgecl to get along without night sos- sfons, us contests of pliysicnl endurance. The Inst resort to that senatorial folly was in October, 1S93, when the silver inirelwse repeal ^ill wns tinder consideration. Time WOK when n niglit session o.C ttic senate was an event, indeed. In the good old days before senators hntl become so temperate niul so afraid of public opinion that they felt called upon to sta.be openly in the senate vhcthor or not they ever got drunk, n night session was soincth'mg of. a sight. End oft.cn wound up in a feast. It was customary in those clays for the servant at arms to have an open "spread" to which everybody' wbo could get admission/to tlifi chamber was welcome, On those occasions enip lo J' cs fl ' cel i' clinked ffliisssus with senators, and it was with great reluctance that consent was givrn lor adjournment. Times have changed, however, and aiiightsea- sion of the senate is now but a tame afl'nir. There !mvo been numerous night sessions full of funny situations. Senator Zcb Yar.ee, of -Vortli Carolina, who was a statesman, humorist, wit and orator, onee was made the victim'nl a practical joke; but the people in the galleries suffered with him. It was one night in 1SBO when the senate held itsflrsUiifflit session in the Fifty-first congress. The big lid>t in the dome of the enpitol, be- neath'the feet of the goddess of liberty, blazed out brilliantly that night. The meeting was rendered necessary by the desire oC senators to be heard on tho question of reciprocity, which came out for the first time, the debate being opened by the brief but telling speech of Senator If ale. A night session of the senate always attracts a crowd of spectators. The galleries were-full long before eight o'clock, the hour set for convening, and the visitors remained late, although the entertainment presented %vas not- strictly first-class. The curiosity seekers were rather imposed uprm 'by a trick o£ Senator Dolph, who ulso ma<le a victim of Senator Vance. The latter had been for many days fixing up a great speech, intending to s«t himself right with his tar-heel constituents, and 1119 LIPS WERK I'tJOKEBED TO SAY "UK. linch, telling stories and laughing sci oudly : that the presiding officer was ompelied to -warn them to keep better Tder. Senator Aldriuh, the n rgus-eyed maniiger of the tariff debate, was jug- ling with a great mass of figures on is desk. Through the cloakroom-door te. handsome and weH-J i-essod McMilan, of Stichigan, could be seen cracking okes with Saunders, of Montana, who.se hree yards of massive gold watch chnin hone like a streak of light.ning. Senii- or Hoar kept his-hat and cone in hi* lands and went'awny enrly. On the de-mocra-ticwide, in tlie front ow, Morgan, Cockrell and Coke' sat eruling.and writing, as if they never did anything else. The pugnacious little Mr. Vest was listening and nodding ap- No 62.

The Farmers' Alliance had been very active in Vortli Carolina, and tlie good-natured Mr. Vance i'elt called upon to tickle them with "a speech. The night session was ordered specially for Mr. Vance's benefit, and hosts of his admirers wno always prrioyed his characteristic storytelling anil 'mirth-provoking speeches, wcre'on hand, \\hcn. President Ingalls' gavel fell Mr. Vance was ready to go on with the programme. His mamiscripl was piled high on. his desk, a glass of water was at his side, and his lips were puckered to say: "Mr. President,' when the-solcmii and slender Dolph, of Oregon, arose, and, being recognized, begun a dry and long-winded speech in opposition to reciprocity with Canada. The surprise and disappointment of the audience, the senators and everybody else was painful. -Mr. Vance, indeed was indignant and disgusted. lie settled back in his chair and waited. He waited a good long time, too, for boty •the evening and the audience were hnl: gone when Dolph talked himself to a standstill ; and then he sat down.. Audience or no andie-nee, Senator Vance determined to deliver that speech and ho arosa and began it. He glared al Senator Dolph who had spoiled his pro grn^ini'o, adjusted his spectacles, and lifted up his voice. ' In each of the cloakrooms there was a largo bowl of lemonade and Severn baskets of Apollinaris on : ice. Dowi In certain committee rooms, occupied by senators who .never indulged, sena toriul cold tea was en trip for the fa vored few. Very little attention- wa paid to the speech of 'Senator Vance •elthoug-h his democratic colleagues dii listen occasionally, and the galleries np (.landed ns loudly as they dared when he 1 reached one of his .many luimorou points. The secne in the chamber at ten o'clock, when Mr. Vr.nce was talking, .vas interesting -if not inspiring. -'J.here sve.re jnst 20 senators) in the chamber, •a d'oKc'ri more in the cloakrooms, where thev could easily be seen .through the- :>peV door, rittd a score more v:ere oxit of sin-hf in th v e various committes rooms, sampling .the smuggled cold tea. • Senators Hiscock imd Evnrts sat on the back row, talking.carnestly.theyounpfjr with his gray unir arranged in the, usual Jisordor and" his aged colleague curli-d up almost out of sight in the big chau )f Senator Sawyer.

Gray talked earnestly to hi-s soat mate, Mr. Ca.rli.sie, who ooked absolutely wornout with hard work and the effects of the long, hot summer. Gibson, of Louisiana, listened wearily to his neighbor, Mr. Blair, who was an intruder on the democratic side; and Pasco, of I'loridn, and Turpie, of [ndiana, sat us quietly and seemingly as dead to the world'as Ku.fus .Ulodgett, of Ke\v Jersey. The most uneasy man in the chamber was Senntor Hearst, o( California. He visited the republican cloakroom for awhile, r.nd finding things too dull there went back, to his own side and chewed on a cigur which he- 'was, apparently, just dying Co light. Senator Vance is now on the other shore, but lie was- very much alive on that night. Senator Dolph wa.s not reelected, and in no longer here to trouble the senate with his singular performances. Nearly all nf the men who were present on that, occasion hn'-e gone to glory or to private life. The pta-tely Ingalls, o£ Kansas, who was president pro tempo-re, is a statesman out of a job, and reulix.es that, political life.is an Iridescent dream. Senator Hnle is still. a member of the senate,.is just as handsome, fully as weli dressed, quite ns sarcastic and given to oratorical efforts from day to"day as of yore'. Dolph has gone .out of public.life and will never again steal an audience which belongs to another senator. Senator Hiseoek, the handstome New Vork statesman, has long been in retirement, having been succeeded by David U. Hill, the sarcastic and uggrCKsive ex-governor of York, who is willing to be president. Senator Evnrts. the learned, the legal authority, the ex- cabinet m inister, the orator with long sentences, all of them classical, was succeeded by 'Senator Murphy. ' Senator Sawyer has gone back to Oshkosh, find little Senator Mitchell, of Milwaukee, occupies his place. Senator Edmunds resigned flv, years ago, and ex-Gov. Proctor, of Ver mont, was elected to r.ncceed him. Tha changes have l-.con numerous, but th«: quality of statesmanlike limber has not deteriorated. Senator Blivir, of the Blair educational bill notoriety, is a visitor in Washington, his place in 1-hc (wnate having been taken by Dr.. Galling.;r, who is-now fhairman of the committee on pensions, tnitl quite a worthy sample of New England statesman. Senntor Carlisle is now secretary oC the treasury. SoiialorOib- son. of Louisiana, no buffer entertains in the democratic clonkroom, with his ininil-abb atones with morals. Senator Rloiifjctt, of New Jersey, lias gone Vxiek to the sand lots of Jersey, and ir. his place- is.Janics Smith, the only senator with a. natural, una.1Vectcd,'sii«on i.nrc-, perfect and almost, fabulous foghorn for a voice. , \Ve have managed to get along without night sessions of the Fifty-fourth congress, but the. Apollinaris water has recent.lv been on tap in the cloakrooms. It is furnished out of what is called the contingent fund of the senate, a.nd disbursed under the discretion of 1he sergeant at arms, who makt-s himself popular with the senators by keeping plenty of lemonade on hand during the hot weather. There is a very black jnan in the republican cloakroom, and a partially black man in the democratic cloakroom, and these employes keep the rooms clean, comfortable and well supplied with'the creature comforts whic.b. come only to senators, millionaire's and newspaper men. There is some honor in being elected to congress as a member of the house of repvesentativcsj.but who is ambitious wiil'iiiro at the senate, where for six yours a inaii way. live lie like a. lord, .-incl the poor patient people r-ay the expenses. That man who ca;i be elected twice to the senate can spend 32 . yvars^in luMiry; • and iifteV, that jvmount-'of pleasure in one lifetime, ?,. man ought to be con tent, to return hom-i and live with, bis neighbors, .or else gather np his fcvtand.be laid away with his fathers. But the average statesman, wlien retired from congress, settles -down in \yashin-ton ,oa U- claim., m'-ent; and lives' ever 'afterward regret- tin" his retirement, ancidnilyirniUting Wolsey' in -bidding "farewell,, a long Carewell, to .all 1 niy.^reatncsK."' . ... .... • .SMITH D.

Protesting petitions have been coming- to the do- partment ever -since it became known that Assistant Secretary McAcloo had signed the order on St. Patrick's day, and hundreds 01' memorialists say they will urg-c upon their representatives in congress to have a linv passed nullifying Secretary Ilebert's order. The opposition of these organizations wiis not unexpected, but it was not believed that they would be serious. Many of them declare that iT the United States orders its warships to he-painted green it will be a direct bid for the Irish votes. Months ag° the authorities decided that soineothcv color than, white was preferable for torpedo boats in order to mii-ke the craft 'invisible.

American Journalist Honored Cor Faltnf nl and Able Reports. Col. John A. Cockrill, the American journalist, has been the recipient of a signal honor at the hands of the emperor of Japan. On him has been bestowed the decorations of the order of the treasury for the just reports he lias given in the United States of the condition, of Japan, combined with his advice on several occasions, when it has been requested on various state and political matters. Editor Cockrill is now en route from Singapore to Paris at tho request of Mr. James Gordon Bennett. He doe.s not exnect to return to Japan, nor will he immediately return to the United States. He wil! probably remain in England for a year as the representative of Mr. Bennett's paper. "It is the onJy instance where such an honor has been bestowed on a newspaper man," said a Japanese oflicw attached to Count Yamagate's stall "The ceremony took place at the imperial palace ir. Tpkio on January 24. Count Ito bestowed the decorations and an ambassador £rom the emperor made a speech to Mr. Cockrill. The insignia consists of n medal, button nncl regalia. The latter is made up of some beautiful shoulder-straps and sash, while the button is blue and yellow. I was pr»sent at the decoration, and it was ft. very impressive ceremony." WORKSHOPS MAY BE DUSTED. Now Apparatus Which Will Conner-re tho Health of Operatives. It is a rule of many, if not all, insur- nnce companies, in taking- a risk upon n wood-working 1 shop, that the fine dust which accumulates in great quantities upon t'he beams and joists overhead and elsewhere shall be periodically removed.. They must, be kept clean. It has been shown by experience that this dust develops explosive qualities to almost as great an extent as that o£ flour, wills. Cy ordinary methods; the removal is attended with considerable labor, and in proportion to the amount of labor is apt to be the degree of neglect.' ' -At the Atqhison, Tppeka &'Snnta Fe railroad shops at Fort Mad-son, la., compressed air is made to'-perform tin' task with but, little work, says the Railway Ago. Air pipes are run througli the buildir? overhead, and at intervals they a.re provided with fittings for the attachment of hose. Once a week a man is detailed who goes aloft and blows the air into every crevice and over every exposed surface. As a result the timbers become as clenn and free from dust as if the building had but just been completed.. The improvement in appearance alone ought to be worth the trifling 1 expenditure! The practice affords another and a very neat illustration of the many possibilities of compressed uir service. A Jiul^o on I-yln^, A London correspondent tells of Tui errand boy who was discharged by u shopkeeper there, whereupon the boy sued for a Week's, wages, in lieu of notice. The man justified himself by saying that-he found that the boy told lie.-!. "Nonsense.".remarked the judge, "all boys tell lies, more or less.. It is a habit that is not confined to them." ' "But it is wicked," pleaded the shopkeeper. "Judgment for the . plaintiff, with oostft," replied the judge. Shipment:! from CtUirornla.
