Considering the Railroad Commission
Tallahassee, Fla. , May 13. —The Demo
cratic caucus met according to appointment
to-night. After discussing at length the ad
visability of adopting the majority rule,
Mr. Pasco took the floor and withdrew his
name from the Senatorial race and made a
strong plea for party harmony. He said he
retired in the interest of neither of the op
posing candidates, but for the sake of party
unity. He then moved that no ballot be
taken to-nigbt, that no election in joint
session be made until the caucus nominates,
and that the caucus adjourn to Monday

the caucus adjourned accordingly.

Monday by trying to shoot himself or the

city by Sheriff Holland to answer to the
charge of having robbed his landlady, came
up for a hearing before Justice Belisario
to-day. Harris has been in jail
since his return, and the landlady, Mrs.
Anne \V. Laidlow's heart has considerably
melted toward him. She came into court
and testified that thepocketbook and money,
acme $72, had been round behind a bureau
in her room, and that after all Harris did
not purloin it. She also further stated that
she hod forgiven him for taking the ring
and pistol, and hail made him a present

she had no very evident desire to punish
Harris. A number of other witnesses testi

conduct while about the premises. So con

Justice seemed at sea as to wiiat to do, but

The ore Is there in abundance, and of a
very superior quality. It is said by analysts
to be the finest ore known for making Bes

matter of the very near future.

JUDGE COOLEY’S VIEWS.
He Talks of the Business and Railroad
A Detroit (Mich.) dispatch to the New
York Times says; Judge Cooley, President
of the Interstate Commerce Commission, is
spending a short time at his home in Ann
Artior, and has given to a reporter some
impressions with reference to the business
and railroad situation that are of interest.
“How did you find the South during your
recent visit there f’ he was asked
“Different. Things were getting on dif
ferently. Atlanta is a very prosperous
place. . Mobile is not going ahead. The peo
ple of Mobile believe that the ruilroud dis
criminations have checked the growth of
their city, and doubtless tho transportation
rates have had much to do all over the
South. But I doubt if that could be helped.
During the past few yea rs a great change
has come over the method of doing business.
Margins of profit have become so small that
time has become the most important element
in shipments. For this reason water com
petition with railroads has constantly been
growing less and loss. This change is severe
ly felt in the South,* where the cities have
been built on navigable streams. Water
freights still regulate the railroad charges
at competing points; but, as I said, the in
fluence of water communication is constant
“Is this true on the great lakes?”
“The influence of lake competition is still
great, but it is not so great as it once was.
There is a Detroit sugar merchant (and there
are others like him) who complains that the
interstate commerce law has ruined his
business. Jfew York merchants now sell to
interior points in the State and ship direct,
leaving Detroit out in tho cold.”
“Is that result due to the law, or to the
general conditions of business?”
“As to that I can only say that changes
in business are constantly going on. There
was a time when every town in Michigan
hail its tannery. Now there are few tan
neries in the State. These changes are con
stantly going on, without any reference to
the interstate law or any other law.”
“Has the question of what constitutes a
line of railroad come before the commis
sion f ’
“This much has been decided. The rate
from Chicago to Liverpool is the same,
whether the freight goes by tho way of Bos
ton or New York, yet the rate from Chicago
to Boston is and must be greater than from
Chicago to New York.”
“Then the steamer part of the way counts
as part of tho line?”
“Yes; for in no other way is exportation
possi 1 ile at Boston. She has not the facilities
that New York has.”
“Can you say whether, on the whole, the
workings of tho law have begun to remedy
the evils complained of?”
“That would lie a matter of opinion. One
man would think one way and another
would have a different view. My opinion
would be only that of one person, and I
must decline to give it.”
“When will the commission meet again?”
“We shall be in AVashington on Monday
at the latest.”
Whatever may be Judge Cooley’s personal
opinion of the new law. its advantages ami
its defects, he is evidently determined that
so far as lies in his power it shall lie enforced
according to lxith its letter aud its spirit.
No man realizes more fully than he the mag
nitude of the railroad problem which is now
pressing for solution, und it is evident from
uis talk that he is determined to give all his
ability and energy to obtain some reasona

Barkeepers’ Various Remedies for the
Effects of too Much Strong Drink.
From, the Cincinnati Enquirer.
“What’s a good thing to sober up on?” in
quired a man of a barkeeper in a fashion
able saloon last night. The chemist looked
at the questioner a moment and replied:
“Oh, you haven’t been budging very hard.
I guess a whisky cocktail would about lie
the thing for you. Just you go and sit
down and sip it gradually, and you’ll feel
“What else do you recommend?” asked a
reporter who was within he aring.
“A phosphate punch would not be bad.
That’s anew thing that somehow doesn’t
seem to mix well. It’s good for the nerves,
I am told, but the effect is not immediate.
Everybody drinks acid phosphate now, but
mostly in soda water.”
“How is soda water us a tonic after a
“Well, I don't recommend it. It’s apt to
cut a man’s stomach up considerably.
Brandy and soda are better.”
“It’s the brandy that does the good there,”
chimed in a customer who was taking a
good fleal of interest in the conversation.
“A little brandy when u man is getting
straightened up is one of the anchors to the
soul. Just the least swallow will do a man
good after a hard carouse, when a teaspoon
ful more would make him deathly sick
again. A man’s got to have some liquor
when he’s getting over a spree. I tell you
there’s been times with me when I thought
that if I stopped short without easing my
self down with a drink of whisky I should
surely die. My old standby, though, when
I am straightening up, is milk toast,
screeching hot, with plenty of red pepper
in it. Not so much, of course, as to make it
disagreeable, us the stomach wouldn’t stand
it, but enough to make it a pretty warm
“Hot beef tea is good, too,” meekly put in
“Yes. but a rare beefsteak just off the
bare of the broiler is worth quarts of it. It
mustn't bo fried, because it can’t be so easily
digested. Hot milk is a boss thing to take,
if it has just a dash of brandy in it,”
“How’s valerian? That’s what they give
at the police station to sufferers with the

the stuff I believe it would kill me. It’s
good for the nerves, but it’3 bad for the
stomach, if a man isn’t too far gone, so
that his stomach is weak, I guess it will do;
but when a man lias been going it for ten
or twelve years he wants to let valerian
alone. I’ve known it to kill people. But
then again men differ. If whisky affects a
man’s stomach, then let him give valerian
the go by; but if it goes for any other part
of the system, he may take it without hurt
ing himself any. 1 have known people to
sober up after a wine drunk by drinking a
little beer, but if I were to try it I believe
it would keel me over. Red pepper and
milk toast is my standby.”
“Yes. but what ;uv you going to do when
your stomach is so feverish and sore that it
won't retain the milk toast?” put in another
soak, who hail been listening for some time
with a good deal of interest.
“The great tiling I use,” continued the last
speaker, “when I am getting well is ice,
broken ice. My stomach is so feeble and so
hot and inflamed after a hard debauch that
I can’t get anything to stay on it but
whisky, but that means another big drunk
on top of the one I’m already trj-ing to re
cover from. I chew up ice until the pieces
are troout as big as jieas, and then I swallow
them. They cool the fever in my stomach,
and after a little while I can man
age to hold down a little beef tea—
say a tablespoonful. I suppose I have
eaten from four to six pounds of ice before I
could experience relief enough to enable my
stomach to hold even a tablespoonfulof beef
tea. Why, I remember after 1 had been
on a spree for about four weeks once, for
thirty-six hours I was flat down—couldn’t
move. Then I’d lie so nervous after a spree
that I couldn’t hold a liquor glass that was
half full without spilling it, my hand would
shake so. And sleep! I'd give a farm if I
could only sloop at a time like that. I have
taken hypodermic injections of morphine
and sulphate of morphia pills until lately
they have only the effect of stimulating the

The statement seemed strangely incongru
ous in a saloon. Here was a mail who was
talking of swearing off and at the same
time meditatively pouring himself out a
good, stiff drink of whisky. He explained:
“Two years ago I used to drink about forty
glasses of whisky per day; now I try to get
along on three or four.”
“Why don’t you leave it off altogether?”
“Yes, why don’t I? Because I haven’t got
the strength to do it. I believe the thirst
for liquor is a disease. I don’t hanker after

a boy of 10 I took my first swig from the
stone jug in which I carried whisky to the
“Will only those people who have that
kind of a taste become drunkards?”
“Nobody can tell. Sometimes a man will
reach maturity before lie ever takes liquor,
and then the passion will grow upon him, so
that lie will die a drunkard. J knew the
father ol a professor in a college, not 200
miles from here, who had lived a life of the
strictest sobriety and temperance up to his
00th year. He was living with his son, and,
being somewhat feeble, was advised by
someone to use a little wino for his
'stomach’s sake.’ Tho passion seemed
to seize him from that day until,
a miserable, disgraced, drunken wretch,
he died of delirium tremens. But, here,
I am not going to preach a temperance ser
mon. Let. me give you a pointer. You see
a nian with whisky blossoms on his nose,
with reddened face, or all bloated up, and
you say to yourself: ‘There is a man whom
whisky is killing.” That’s where you make
the mistake. The man whom whisky kills
tho quickest and makes to suffer the most,
is the man whose stomach is the point of at
tack. It's isiund to strike for the weakest
part, and the man whoso stomach is the
weakest part has to suffer.

other girl again. But it was no use.
“You cannot alter my determination.

George fumed, bit his lip and vowed that
she was too cruel
“I am not cruel, George. I am only frank.
You provoke just such scepticism and I am
of a peculiar exacting disposition. I would
demand of my husband a complete surrender
of his heart to me and in time you .would
resent that demand os awarding me undue

upbraid rue for expecting you to exercise
unjust discrimination against other and

STORIES OF MR. BEECHER.
The Church Bible, Bath-Tub Baptists
and PeekskiU Strawberries.
From ihe New York Evening Sun.
The great bible that lies on the reading
desk of Plymouth church is filled with me
mentos and memoranda placed there for
preservation by Mr. Beecher. It was al
ways his habit to slip between its pages a
note or nosesray he wished to keep, and I
have heard him say that in turning the
leaves of this book when preaching faces
and scenes of other days would be brought
to mind by a slip of paper incribed with
some message or a flower. I met Mr.
Beecher one day when he was having his
portrait painted by LeClair. as he stepped
from tiie studio building in West Tenth
street. I had not seen him for ten years.
He grasped my hand warmly, but did not
speak my name.
“Who am If” I said, rather hurt that he
“You are the one that gave me the little
bunch of forget-me-nots on such a date.
They are in my Bible.”
“How old you have grown!” I said.
“Is it not time, my child,” he answered.
He did not ask my name, but as we walked
along together and I referred to my boy,
Mr. Beecher said, “What is his name?”
I spoke my child’s first name only, be
cause I was piqued that my own name had
slipped from his memory.
Few of the older members of Plymouth
church but recollect the revival of 1808. when
so many young people united with the church
! the first Sabbath morning in May. On the
Friday evening previous Mr. Beecher im
mersed those who preferred this form to that
of sprinkling. On the next morning he
came into the lecture room, where early
meetings were held, exclaiming: “How
are the bath-tub Baptists this morning?”
The beautiful Annie Howard was one of
the number who was immersed. I remem
ber how she got down on her knees to Mr.
Beecher to bog him to dance with her at a
little gathering of young folks one evening.
But Mr. Beecher would not be persuaded.
Frequently the groat preacher referred to
the light-hearted girl who was so intimately
associated with nis own daughter, after
death had cut short her young life.
During the war the ladies of the church
met in the social circle parlors to sew for
the soldiers, particularly the Brooklyn
Fourteenth regiment. Company C was
made up of Plymouth church boys. Mrs.
Beecher, in her dainty blue lawn gown, is
fresh in my memory. Mr. Beecher had
gone to Washington for the first time, and
more or less anxiety was felt at having him
so far South in those turbulent times. He
had not written to his wife. She was so
worried she could scarcely compose herself
to cut out the garments, which was her
task. She stood with her back to the door
of the room when Mr. Beecher came in
quietly and put his anus around her —and
Mrs. Beecher cried.
These were the (lays before large straw
berries were plentiful —when only the small
soi-ts were cultivated for the market. Mr.
Beecher raised on the Peekskill farm mam
moth berries, such as are now displayed to
gain prizes. They were sent daily to his
Brooklyn home in profusion. Everyone
who called there had their fill of strawber
ries and cream.
Mr. Beecher’s generosity toward all classes
was proverbial. After ” his return from
Europe the second time he took sincere
Eleasure in distributing the gifts he had
rought back. He had forgotten no one
among his friends. A jeweled pendant for
his daughter-in-law that was to be, curious
pocketbooks for bis deacons, and paper cut
ters with handles of the Alpine goats’ hoofs.
