BUSH STREET Fanchon. STANDARD Emerson's Minstrels. TlVoLi JAROEi Donna Juanita. New Code Vc Old Code. The annual meeting of the New York Sttte Medical Society enJed in a schism. It was a stormy gathering, the "new code of medical ethics" proving as explosive as a dynamita bomb. One year ao the "new code men," as they are called, believing the time had come for establishing friendly relations with the physicians of other authorized schools, adopted the following rule: "Members of the Medical Society of the Stata of New York, and of medical societies in affiliation therewith, may meet iu consultation with legally-qualified practioners of medicine. Emet-'gencies may occur iu which restriction shall, in the judgment of the practiouer, yield to the demauds of humanity." As there were only eighty of the several hundred members present the "old code" men complained that it was a clear case pf snap judgment, and this year they mustered in full force, ami beaten by a vote of 124 to 107; Thereupon, the old coders withdrew and formed a new association, which they called the Medical Association of the State of New York, with Dr. H. D. Didama, of Syracuse, as President. The "new code" men claim the clause for which they contend does not lower the standard of practice, but tends to elevate it, and put it in accord with the spirit of the age. That it emancipated the members of the Society from dogmatic and austere restrictive legislation, which, however necessary in an immature state of society, certainly had no relevancy to its present condition. Dr. C. R. AoKKW, of York, a physician of national celebrity, said "It would have the effect of combining all qaaliiied practitioners against empirics and outlaws. Ic will drive irregulars like tramps from place to place, and will quickly lead to a registration of ail educated medical men, and thus insure protection to the public." He fortified his position by quoting the following from Hkrbekt Spencer "Restrictions of every kind cannot last much longer than they are wanted, and cannot be destroyed much faster than they ought to be. Society, in all its de velopments, undergoes the process of exuviation. The old forms which it "Sta. successively turows on, have once oeen vitally united with it have severally served as the protective envelope with which a higher h-umanity was being evolved. They are cast aside when they become hinderances; only when some inner life and better envrlope bas been formed, ana they bequeath to us all that was in them iriod." JL Lt At the recent meenng ot the Republ can State Central Committee in Chicago, four hours were spent iu speech-making before the committee went into execu tive session, as the Senate would -say, with closed doors to decide where the State convention shall meet. The Inter-Ocean says the most eloquent speech fell from the lips of a colored man, the Rev. C. S. Smith, of ISloomington. Speaking of the eight millions and a quarter of colored people in the South now practically disfranchised, and who look to the Republican patty for help, the colored orator said: know it is not popular now. Men say it waving the bloody shirt. Would to God we had no bloody shirt to wavef Would to God there had been no Meridian! Would to God there had been no New Orleans! Would to God there bad been no Memphis! Would to God there had been so Yazoo City! Would to bod there had been no Danville! Would to God there had been no Hamburg! AYould to God there bad not been a hundred places! If those had not been there would have been no bloody shirt. But in the loom of disloyalty they woven the shirt, made it bloody iu the blood of the innocent, and so long as I have voice and so long as I have an arm I will wave that bloody shirt until they take it out of my hand and it in the waters of sincere repentance and bring forth good works. A hill has been introduced into the House of Representatives by Mr. Holmes, of Iowa, providing for agricul tural experimental stations in connec tion with the agricultural colleges of the various States. object is to aid the Agricultural Department in diffusing among the people useful information as to procuring and propogating valuable seeds and plants. The bill finds much favor among the agricultural journals. The experimental stations are to be placed under the control of the regents or trustees of the State agricultural col leges. To pay the salaries of the professors and cost of experiments and research and an appropriation of $15,000 is asked for each statiou, provided, before any college shall be entitled to draw such fund the Legislature of the Stata hall pass an Act accepting the trust and agreeing the experiments shall be conducted according to the tenor of the bill. 0 Sknatok Millkr esterday introduced a bill into the Senate appropriating 9150,000 to build a postoffice in Oakland, and Representative Budd presented a strong petition to the House in favor of the measure, and took occasion to urge the necessity of such a building. There is no doubt that Representative Glascock, indeed the whole California delegation, will heartily co-operate, and in that case, the success "of the measure may be considered as quite hopefuls It is every day becoming more pa-teat that the leaning of the Democratic party for a Presidential candidate is towards a millionaire like Flowers, of New York, or Payne, of Ohio, who will make it pleasant for the boys. They realise that it will be' a bootless race, and this explains why they hanker for a big bar'l to tap. OAKLAND PI1IASE! Low Prices Towels and Linens.

A. L. Oakland, February ,19, 1884. The Mining At-cldent Union-town. Unioxtows, February 21st The scene cf yesterday's terrible disaster, was visited by large numbers to-day. The majority were sinply curious, but many came with an earnest intention of investigating, and, if possible, ascertain the cause of the explosion. Heretofore gas has not caused much trouble in Western Pennsylvania mines, but it is evident that a vast quantity bad generated in a short time without being discovered. The majority of experts who examined the mine this morning incline to the belief that the explosion resulted from the falling in of a portion of the roof of one of the chambers and exposing a crevice fi'led with fire-damp, etc. They are not however, willing tjo stake their reputation on this until a more thorough examination can be made. Ceffins for the nineteen victims arrived from Pittsburg this morning, and all will be buried from Uniontown to-morrow. Two-thirds of the victims are Catholics, and it has not been decided whether union services will be held, or each family bury its own dead. The Connellsville Coke and Iron Com pany, owners of the mine, pay all funeral expenses. There are none here who censure the Committee. The opinion is universal that, the explosiqn cannot be charged to their neglect, as the shaft was a model of the most approved appliances used for safety, and greater precautions were taken thnn are required by the law. The families of dead miners are not in immediate destitute circum stance, bat the sadden withdrawal of their support caused by the sudden death of husbands, fathers and brothers will be seriously felt in near future. Many had their lives insured only last week. Insurance agencies have collected among the mines and miners, aud a large number of the miners have Availed themselves of the opportunity, among them several who were killed.
