BOTH HURT AND : HELPED I I ' HOW riTTSBVRQ FELS OYER TUB NEW LAW. ! TtELraD nr mx lojio aud abort hacl CLACSr, BIT L0I1X0 ITS TkClTie COAST TRADE. ' riTTant'ito, Penn., April 15. Tbe amoky city for It la amoky and rdmy yet In apibe of tba tgbt between natural fa aad eoaj ha received a kick In the back and a porooa plaster through the Instrumentality of the lnter-State commerce law. She can no longer market ber product on tha Fertile ooeat or ship coal to Aibtabula for dlstHbotloa. On tbe other hand, tha lonf and abort haul clause of the law enablee ber merchaota to laka freight from Cblcago and rrahlp here to the eaatorn seaboard without haodlnf over all tha proSta to tbe railroads. Before the luter-Btate oonimeroe law became tha fashion abe paid 174 cent per hundred weight on Chicago freight, half tha card rate from Chicago to Boston, and If tba through rate to New-York was SO eut Pittsburg paid IS cent to ebip benoe to tb seaboard. As tba card rates to tbe aeaooard were only nominal It not seldom occurred that tbe rata from Chicago to Pittaburg waa higher than tba actual through rate from Chicago to lioaton. Now tba Chicago rata to tola point and tba rata on ahlptnenta hence to the Eaat ara only 6 cenU mora than tha through rata from Chicago to New-York. Tblala satisfactory, and repreeenta tba porous plaatar, Tha kick represent tbe loea of Pittsburg's trade on tba reeiflo coast and ooal market on the lakea, Juat aa aoon aa tha commission find Itself able to turn around without bumping Into ap-peala and argtimenU It will ba requeued to Klva Ita opinion of an arraogemaut ald to have been made under tba authority of the Central Trafllo Association between tha Pennsylvania and tha Hocking Valley Roads. Last year, for Instance, the latter earned coal from tbe Hocking Valley to Cleveland for 83 onbt per ton. The Pennsylvania charged tba an price for placing the coal of thie region at Aah tabula, -although tbe haul over tbe Hooking Valley Boad-waa much tbe longest. Under tbe Interstate commerce law the Hocking Valley Koad maintains It old rate, while tbe Pennsylvania Increases Ita rate to $1, thus shutting Pittsburg coal out of the lake market. Pittsburg shipper ask If thli la nondiscrimination, dome ot tbem ara not certain that it la not one of tbe mean adopted by railroad for creatine public sentiment againat tb bill. But why houM tba Pennsylvania Kallroad desire to create aontlment againat tb bill I Is a natural Inquiry, it la wall known that the road la reaping a rich harvest under it provisions. The answer given to such a question Is tbat the road as represented by Ita stockholders may not favor auub a ecbeine, but tbat mauy of lie agent may. Once more tbe arranger aaki for light and la told that only a small percentage of the road'a General Agents In tbe vicinity are poor men. The majority ara therefore supposed to favor a system In which rebate were nut unknown, and In which discrimination was not a crime. It I an open secret here that railroad men have for year had a stake In bnalnesa Interest which have been carefully fostered bv the railroads to the disadvantage, and sometime tbe eitlnctlon, of competing Interest which have attempted to do battle on their merits. I). Ii. Oliver, of tbe Arm of Oliver Brothers at Phillips, iron master, known throughout the country, la not certain tbat a more unsatisfactory law could have been constructed. Although the firm's alilpraenta are Immense its quota on March 31 waa 101 carload be would lie entirely satisfied with a law tbat protected the small shipper and gave him tbe same rate aa the most powerful competitors, and to Tub Tixts's correspondent he advocated Government control of the country's railroads and telegraph systems. Yet he considers the long and abort haul clause an unmitigated evIL Tbe law, be claims, I tbn offspring ol tbe Pennsylvania Kallroad. If the law (remains In force for live years." be said, " the Pennsylvania Hallroad Company will be the moat iowerf ill corporation In the country. The Htaudard Oil Company will lie uo comparison to It. Under tbe law it carries all of Puts burg's buslnesa to the seaboaid. The long nd abort haul olauae enables It to do so. The 1'enu-s Kama's route to New-York la AH mile long, audit rat i 1H cents. The New-York Central's mileage between Pittsburg and New-York 1 over tMK) mile, and Ita rat I 21 conta. The Cuntrar rat from Youugatown la 21 cent. The Pennsylvania also touches Youugatown in another direction, and IU rate thiiiue to New-York Is 21 cant. Tbe Central cannot reduce Ita local ratea to auch figures aa will allow It to compete from this city to the seaboard, and consequently the Pennsylvania has a clean sweep, t hen ft also carries all tba freight shipped from Pittsburg to Ht. Louis. Tae long and short haul clause enables It to do that It la tba only company that own a road that si rstohes from Pittaburg to East Ht. Louis, tba Pittsburg, Cincinnati and Bt Louis, There are other way of reaching UU Louis, of course, but tbe longest single road ouly runs as far as Marlon, and theae routes, wade up of several roada, caunot compete with the Pennsyl vania, When It became evident that tha Inter-State commerce law would do all thla for tha Penn- aylvaula, I expected Its stock to Jump up 125 poioia. i ivisourg is one oi me citira toat naa no need of sucb a bill, though tha Chamber of Commerce resolved that It waa a measure that abnuld ba adopted. It I a great railroad centre, and we have no water competition except by river for a few months. Iu a muutb or so without rain the river wtll be as dry aa a cork. At present n is an advantage, ana we can ship to Cincinnati by water for 8 cents, while rail cost IS. We wanted no long aud short haul clause. Under the law ratea to the East ara all right, but aa much cannot b said tot Western ratea. Walt tilt tna far western. North western, aud 8ou to-western farmer is heard from. It look as If tba law would coin pel tbe Oakuta farmer to burn his wheat for fuel. Parineri of tbe tail and Welt, too, and even beyond tba Mississippi, will probably be benefited bv the law. It killed our business with tbe Paolfie elope. The old trans-ooutlnantal rate was from SO to 65 cents a hun dred pound to Han Francisco. Tbe new rate Is pi 7. a Jump from to if cents a pound. We looKea for au advance and withdrew In time. There were more people tn favor of the bill than thuM era f tha Mr. Oliver la only one of the many, however. who hope that tha inter Btate commerce law ts out tba lurerunuer or satisfactory railroad legla lation. MARIE BLAXCUARD DEAD. SUB DIES Of WOUNDS INFLICTED BT HERSELF. 1'oiLADKLPUiA, April 10. Mario Blanch-ard, a pretty girl of 18. died this afternoon at the bouse of ber uncle, Wheaton Berault, a wealthy lawyer, of V.lnaland, N. i. On April 1 aha ahot herself, and since then aha hai been hovering between Ufa aud death.

Tba doctors said she could not live if tun nail waa not removed. In wa found that the ball in entering four tuebea enure the navel on the rlglit side nad fractured tbe ninth rib. entered tb abdominal cavity, clipped tbe edge of tbe liver. rnssed through tbe stomach and out, making wo boles, and a large bole one and oue-fourlh Inches Ion gin a small Intestine; cut an artery and a large vein at the bead of the pancreas, causing agooddenlot hemorrhage; passed through the mecutery, made a large rcut in the left kidney, and finally rested In the right flank, where it wa located.

Tha arteries and vein were ligatured aud the aouoaiau i wa aewea with ellrcr ' wire, bince tb) operation tbe girl ha been con scious at Intervals.

A KOTHia-If-LAW AJUtcim FOR KILL-, ISO HER SOX'S WIFE. TOROifTO, ipril 13. Th particulars of a korrthle poisodin esse In a amall village called Tbedford, A both a hundred miles west of here. on tbe lire between Toronto and Detroit, have juat become known. Last Fall Mrs. Martha Jane Byckma i, an old woman and widow of a farmer, went to Hokesville, Vs., with her son and bis wife, v ho waa tba half litter of tba Rev. Albert Kennet y, a prominent Methodist minister. Tba bt sband bad eonaumptlon, and tha trip wis taken for tha benefit of bla health. (The party topped at tbe bouse of MaJAr Daniels, a wealthy Ponthern gentleman, who is a brother In-law ot Martha Krcka-ian. While at Daniels's house Laura Rrrknatn. tha roang wife of tbe con sumptive, took a dose of aalta prepared for her oy ner motbei -In-law. Bhe took auddenly aick aoon after and showed symptoms of poisoning, vomiting . ant suffering lrom a pain in ber stomach. ftn chnlne waa found In the salts tbat remained In the house. Lanra Kyckman recovered, an I the party determined to return to Canada. Tbe day before they were to leave for home Lauaa again took suddenly 111, but this time tbe symptoms were different, though tbey indicated thai aba had taken a new kind of poison. Hhe riled a few hour after having taken tbe poison. Ttie body waa brought home and buried on Cnrtatm jay near Tbeuroro. Laura's buahand stisnected that bis wife had been poisoned and It Is said communicated bis suspicions to .frs. llandrtoka, an old lady who Uvea in Tliedfi ird. and wbo waa a slater in-iaw nf bla mother. Mrs. Hendricks was visiting the Hyrkmana a ft w months ago when she took suddenly ill and died, tba cause ot her death being apparently similar to that of Laura Ilytikmaii. It was aacertulned that Martha Kyckman hud bongbtenntigt strychnine and arsenic In Tbedford before lea ring for Virginia to kill several hundred men Hh told tba drug clerk who sold It to ber It waa to kill rata, and tbat ia would leave It with her daughter in, TI dford. Tba latter aayi she did not get tbe pol son. A few weeks ago tbe body of Laura was i ihumed and an Inquest held on It. An analysis of the contents of the stomach resulted in the discovery of auflluleut arsenic to cause death. Tbe Coroner's Jury found thatl-aum came to her leath by poJaon administered by Martha Jane Kyckman. The mother-In law could not be tried lere. a the death of Laura took place In tha I' tilted Btatea, but steps are being taken to hav her extradited and tried lu Virginia tor tbe n order of Laura Kyckman. Last Friday when tbe verdict was returned a aon of the lau Mrs. Hendricks caused the arrest of Martha Ry kman. charging ber with tba murder of his raoiher, whose remain are being examined for pplson. No less than three other suspicious deaths, Including the husband and a niece about 'J years old ot Martha Byckman, have occurred In the Rvckman family. The prisoner's marrtara was not of her own choice, but was forced on her by her parents. Bhe did not live happily with her husband. It Is said, and used frequently to express the wish that be and all bla cbtldrrt were dead. It la alleged she corresponded wih a man In Toronto, ber first love, and was engaged to be married to him. The neighbor! of tbe woman say she has been handling polgon for years and that she caused tne death of at leaat two of ber children, her buahand, and two near relatives, and tbat ahe perpetrated tbe murder to secure for herself valuable family property.

Tbo rHef sought br tbe New-York Real Estate Exchange and by lawyers generally who are compelled to patronize tbe odloe of Register Blerln cannot ha granted this year. For thla tha Bcglater himself sod bis friends must be held responsible. By -the action of the ' lattery ln the Assembly to-day the Hamilton bill, which promised some succor, was killed. Messrs. Itci and Cantor of New-York and Bbeeban of Erie, by rallying their Democratic associate! and making a party matter of a business proposition ubmitted by Mr. Hamilton, must share tbe responsibility between tbem. As members ot Tammany Hall Messrs. Ives and Cantor felt bound to support such legislation as Slevln wanted, and to oppose any wMch proposed to hold htm to a stricter accountability in the discharge of tbe duties of his office. To tboir folly chiefly waa due the tangle Into whioh tbe House fell, while tba inefficient Mr.'lTaU waa In tba chair this morning, and tho cohiquent fAllure of tba Hamilton bill. At tba request of Mr. Wartdlnftrm and otlieri ottbe Iloal Estate Exchange, Mr. Hamilton, early In tha session, introducst'. a bill requiring, aiuoag olhnr beneficial ollons, that searches sliould bo rturnd within li days, Heglster Hlnvln sent his counsel. John Strahan, here to oppose the bill, which had ound lodgment In the Judiciary Committee, atul. proceeded himself to set lu motion the political machinery which should control the comtnlitea, Including tha Chairman, Mr. Haker. Ives manipulated tha come 'tee. Affairs were In auoh a shape that It seemed to Mr. Hamilton that tha only way ba could get any legislation nt all would be to accept a compromise presented hy sievin'a friend, Air. cantor, oo be yielded, deterw ed take tbe matter Into the House. Assembly alll No. 1,017 wim toe result. There waa a verv light House, this morning. and tbe Republicans bad barely a quorum, If they had that This was the opportunity of Slevln's friends. They determined to pass the Hamilton bill without giving Mr. Hamilton an opportunity to amend it. This was the application or tne snap-primary meinooi oi Tammany to a legislative liody. Mr. Cantor called up the Hamilton hill, and bad it placed on its passage, a situation which would have neen reached anyway In a few days The bill declares of searches made within 'JO days tbat tbe Register "shall be liable for all damage and Injuries resulting from errors. Inaccuracies, or mistakes in his returns so certified by blm." Mr. Hamilton moved to amend the bill so a to hold the Register equally responsible for tbe three days' searches which this bill authorized blm to make. Notwithstanding the fact that tbe register waa allowed by tbe bill one-ball fee extra for making three days' searches, he evi dently wanted to mirk responsibility aitognrner on this class of searches. His friends voiced his views on the floor by attacking Mr. Hamilton'! proposition. In vain tliaf gentleman protested tbat a search without a guarantee of Ita accuracy waa no search at all. Every Democratic vote In tho House waa rallied to defeat It, Including the vote of aeveral Republicans, and the amendment was lost. Mr. Hamilton told his Republican friend! that the bill In its existing sbspo wa practically worthless, and he set the example of voting against It. Tbe Mlevln crowd would hear no arguments snd listen to no proposition to lay the bill over. They were bound to pass It then or not at all. Tbey missed fire, for tbey could only muster .'fl votes. Then Mr. Hamilton sought to mske the usual parllmsntery motion to iitbln the defeated bill, so as to secure the opportunity formaklng one more attempt to pas It. The author of a bill la alwai s recognized by the Speaker to make this motion. kA w 111,.,, IK. Ian u.n .............. .. , K . .. I.

The )e-imhllcaiis refused to vote, the Democrats could muster no quorum, mid a scene of excitement and, disorder ensued. Speaker Husted had returned, aud pushing Mr. Piatt to the rear he took charge of the House and straightened out the snurl. Tho roll was called on Mr. Ives's motion to reconsider. The motion was lost aud with It the bill, felevlu's admirers had overshot the murk. 8omo of them swore roundly and ottemptedto blame tho Hepublicans. forgetting that they never would il up tbe bill If tbey bad not beltnved tbey were in full control of the House, and had enough Democratic votes with their few Uenub llcan allies to pass the bill In tbe ahape most favorublo to Hlevln. Senator Traphagrn, alio of Tammany, sought to repair tbe folly of tho New- York Assemblymen by introducing the bill In the Senate. There is a rule of both houses, however, which forbids a bill killed in one house from being Introduced lu tbe other and again put on It passage, except by unanimous rousent This it will be exceedingly difficult to get. Mr. Erwln's Hotel Flro Escape bill waa passed after some debate. The bill provided thai e Very hotel exceeding i wo stories In height nhall before July 1, 1887. cause a half-Inch ro)e to bo placed In each room above the ground floor, to be used as a Are escape. Tho penalty tor violations was Imprisonment for one year or a fine of fl.OUO, or both. This was amended by Mr. Finn by providing as a penalty of violation imprisonment for 30 darn or a tine of BJfto. or both. On motion of Mr. hailon the bill waa so amended as to provide that the rope shall be securely fastened al tbe Cop Instead of tbe bottom of each window, so as to make It moro easily used. Tbe bill was theu passed with only one or two dlsseotlng votes. Tiie Henate ordered to a third reading to-day Mr. Cullen's bill concerning unclaimed deposits in savings batiks. The bill has been greatly amended, and now require! the savings banks to report to the bank superintendent at tbe ei;d of this year tbe names of all depoilton whoi accounts have not been added to or decreased for the last IK) years and aro claised unclaimed" and the respective amount of deposits. It I limited to deposits of over $10. The bank Superintendent Is required to Incorporate thce fuels In bis next teport The bill In this shape Is likely to pass, althousu as tbe Superintendent already has full power to obtain the Information prudent Senator will rote against It, as It Is reasonably certain, if passed, to encounter! tbe Executive veio.

It prohibits the Issue of railroad stocks aud bond to au amount In excess of the actual cost of construction equipment, and right of way, and requires tba certification of the Htate Englurer and tbe Hailroail Commission to tho fact tbat tho proposed lsiue of securities duel not not exceed tbe cost of construction, Ac. before slocks and bund may lie Issued and put on the market As the bill stands It virtually prohibits the construction of any more rullioails in th Stale; but Mr. Daly means lo use it as a basis on which to ronstrn. t In committee a more carefully drawn measure to accomplish the deal red end.

In tbe early part of last March soma half a dosan weavers who b tinged to No. 126 left the order, and shortly afterward they ware discharged from tba faetirv partly for being Incompetent.

" ' Michael IL Murphy, for 16 eonaecutito' years Water Register of tba Democratlo little town ot Hobo ken, has mysteriously disappeared and nnder circumstance which have given rue to tba graves! eoaptetaaa aa to bla official honesty la tba disposition of tha city's funds la his charge. For long time past th clause against tba city of the Hackenaack Water Company, which supplies Hoboken wltb water, bare been to a degree disregarded by tbe Water Commls-elonere, and tba pressing demand! of this corporation for money doe It bava led to the alleged discovery tbat Murphy, hy whom all money concern! of tba board were transacted, la a defaulter to the amount ot from 913,000 to 920,000. , Thla alleged discovery wa made on Thursday night. The Hackensack Water Company, which has filled Ita Hoboken contract for years, baa rendered Ita bills to the Water Commissioners, or, more correctly, to Register Murphy, and baa from time to time been put off by thai officer with vague axcuae. Tbe Register asserted, when pressed by the company for money due it, tbat water rente were very bard to collect, and that tbe city'a money, therefore, was "short." Tbli sort of thing waa kept up, small Installment being occasionally paid, until tba city was Id arrears to the water company to the extent of 9-0,638 31. On Dee. 3 last, when the arrears wrre about SAI.OOO, President R. W. De Forest, of tho water company, wrote to tba Water Coinmlssloners-ths letter was, aa usual, addressed to Register Murphy making a pressing demand for the money, or, at least, for as much of tbe total amount as could be then paid. Tbli letter, it la aserted, nevor wa communicated to tha Commissioners, but on Dec. 31 90,000 waa paid on account. Iu February last another six-thousand-dollar installment was paid, reducing the amount In arrears to tha flg-ura given above. Sine that time no money has been paldJ The water company claimed that the failure of the city to make Ita payments promptly and regularly embarrassed It greatly, and it very much desired that tb Commissioner should adopt a ly item of auch prompt and regular payment. In order to discus the question President Wlagea, of tbe Board of 'Water Commissioners, directed Register Murphy to call a meeting of the board for laat Thursday night. Mr. Wiogea explained to Murphy the object of the meeting, and tbe Register sent out tbe notice la due form. Thl was on Thursday morning. At 8 o'clock the time mentioned In the call the Commissioners, Messrs. Wing, Pfelf-fer, Fayen, Lehman, and Fltslmmnns, met at the board room in the City Hall, but Murphy did not come. The Commissioner waited for blm and sent message (or him, but tn vain. Murphy could not be found. At his home nothing was known of his whereabouts, and hli usual .haunts in the town were searched In vain. Then President Wlnges made the startling announcement tbat, using bla prerogative as President, be had paid a visit In the afternoon to tbe First National Bank ot Hoboken, where tbe water acoount la on deposit, and had been furnished with a statement ot tbe oitv'e water account there. Instead of 92.VOOO which should have been to the city's credit, something over S 7.00O represented the sum total on deposit, f this amount 93,407 Oil had been paid In by Murphy that afternoon. Thl statement was a bombshell. "Mike" Murphy, genial "Mike" Murphy, known and liked by hair of Hoboken, a defaulter It could not be believed. There must have been some mistake. Murphy could not have stolen money in his care. It was absurd, the member said. Mike" would turn up all right and "fix things." But " Mike" has not turned up yet, and tbe only way thingi are likely to be fixed li by the payment of the ten-thousand dollar bond which bo furnished at bis last election. On Thursday night thn Commissioners waited until 11 o'clock for Murphy to "turn up" aud than went home. Yesterday morning inquiry at bla borne resulted in the discovery that he had nut been there the night before, and that nothing was known of him by bla family. Then tbe belief tbat he had ' skipped" began to lie entertained by every body, for the news filled Hoboken like a flash. Yesterday afternoon tba Water Commissioner! bad a special meeting to take action ou the matter, but as to tbe actual amount of money whloh waa short in Murphy's accounts tbey could form no aocurate estimate. Ilia account! would have to be carefully examlnod, aud that would take time. After issuing a peremptory order to Murphy to appear at an evening session of the Commissioners aud show oause why he should not at once be removed from office, which order wa served on Murphy's mother, the hoard adjourned uutll 8 o'clock in the evening. At tbat bourMurphy waa still absent, but a motion to declare his o trice vacant was poatponed uutll thla evening. Mr. William 1L Mary, Hecretary of tbe Hoboken Land Improvement Company, was appointed as expert accountant to examine Murphy accounts. Mr. Mucy accepted the appointment on the condition tbat he obtained permission from his superiors to act. If he obtains that ne'.tuls-slon he wtll begin work this morning, aud I.', will take mm probably a week to Oulh. Until then the real amount of Murphy's deficit can only bo guessed at. Besides the S7.000 on deposit In the First National Bank the Water Commissioners may be able to collect from f 1.500 to e'J.OOO from water rents in arrears, and this, will be all the money they will have with which to meet tbe Hackensack Water Company' twenty-nlne-tbousand-dollar claim. This la tbe estimate given in the light of present circumstances. In the examination of Murphy's accounts It may turn out tbat there Is money due the city about which nobody but Murphy knows anything, and which may be sufficient to cover the deficit. But this ll a vague hope. Murphy's boudimen are Martin btelln and John Brunlng, each for $5,0O0. Theae gentlemen were seen by a Tim reporter last night, aud, although, to use tbelr own words, tbey are "paralyzed" by the new, tbey stand ready, if necessary, to make good their bond. "MlkeA Murnby I a Democrat and was serving hli fifth three-rear term aa Register, having been re-elected last Spring, ill salary wus $..'.500 a year, and, although he spent money rather freely, in a hearty, jovial way that won the friendship of every one who knew him, be waa considered by bli friends to be living within bl Income. He was not married, living with his mother, lister, and brother in rather poorly furnished roomi at 318 Park avenue, and bow be managed to get away with tbn ('JO.OOO. if get away wltb It ho did. ii a mystery to bis friends. He bad no exponalve tastea aa far as any one knows, was not addicted much to drinking or at all to gambling, bad lived all bl life tn Hoboken, and never until now was known to do a wrong thing- It is stoutly aaeerted by many persons tbat MBrphv's absence will be sails-fuctorily explained when he return, as It ll confidently predicted he will. Another theory has gained considerable headway, and was expressed last night by Mr. Wlnges. wbo said: "Murphy will never he found, but his body may he unearthed from some unfrequented place. That he ba commuted suicide I feel sure." When asked bit reason! fur thli belief Mr. Wlnges said tbaton the day before, whan Murphy had been directed to call the board meeting, be acted strangely, and appeared to be " very much downhearted." Murphy was a very sensitive man, sir. wmgei said, and If he hail committed crime he would never have beea able to face tb disgrace, Ietb would be innniieiy prererame. Murphy made his last deposit at the hank Just before it closed, and must have gone away lmme dlatelr afterward, without leaving a trace behind. Murphy fought through the rebellion and is a member of the Major Woerncr Post, No, Hi, U. A. R, HI war record I good. MR. TAX AXTWERl'H TROUBLES.

A characteristic letter from Dr. Lymam Abbott aroused some Interest: so did a communication from the Pastor of Westminster Chapel, London, which alluded to Mr. Beecher! last visit to England as " made all the dearer because Mrs. Beecher came too;" but the audience gave the deepest attention to a long aud verboss communication from the Chicago Congregational Minister!'
