dred members of the guests of Washington
Heights Century club sat down to the an
nual commemorative dinn- rat Murray Hill
hotel last night. "The congress of the
United States the best illustration of rep
resentative government" created some
what ot a sensation bv declaring in the
course of some remarks upon the relative
powers oi tne states ana federal govern-
ment that although he had been an oliicer
in the confederate army he had always
thought ne was a traitor to the iederal gov
ernment and if caught had deserved to have
D en nung and that this was not done was
due only to the beneficence of he victor-
ious government or the mercv of God.
Col. Fellows was asked to sav something
about the ce. sus. He replied: the census
is a back number. The decisions of the
government which has the sole right to
take the census should be accepted without
lurtner dispute lie admitted he was in
favor of the free coinage of silver if one
hundred cents was put into every dollar.
A College Row.
Galbsbubg Ills. Feb. 24. The celebra
tion of Washington's birthday by the
students of Knox college began at mid-
night when a large band of "Preps" gained
the top of the college barricaded the doors
behind them and fastened a yellow banner
to the cupola staff and rang the btll. The
Freshmen charg-d the building and until
long after daylicht a noisy fierce demon-
stration prevailed. The" Freshn:en by
smashing in the doors with a sledge ham-
mer managed to get past all the barr.cades
but the last which effectually barred their
way. Five of the Preps were captured
bound band and feet and treated with
violence. The Preps held the fort all day.
The affair is a little less than disgraceful
owing to damage done to the college prop
erty and is condemned by a majority of
New York Stock Market.
Nbw York Feb. 23. The resumption of
business at the stock exchange this morn-
ing gave no evidence that there were any
more brokers or operators in the city than
before the holiday and certainly there was
no more interest displayed in the transac-
tion of securities at tbe board. There is al
most nothing in the market worthy of
mention. The tendency of prices seems to
be down. The close was very dull and
heavy at the lowest prices of the day but

Mutter Throughout the
Dallas Tex. Feb. 24. Catharine Sals-
bury was placed on trial today in Judge
Burke's court charged with the murder of
Mary R. Farmleth on August 9 1838. The
two women were near neighbors and a
family quarrel had sprung up between
them. Matters had grown to such a feeling
between the women that Mrs. Silsbury
went to Justice Braswell and wanted Mrs.
Farmleth put un ler peace bond. Justice
Braswell continued thecuse and thus mat-
ters stood the day of the killing.
Just before the killing took place Mrs
Farmleth walked down the s reet past Mrs.
Saulsbury's hiuse. Mrs. Siulsbury was
standing in her d or so a witne.-s testifies
and spit as Mrs. Farmleth meandered bv.
Mrs. Farmleth thought Mrs. Sauisbury
was spitting at. her and loooked upon it a
an ominous sign. As she was returning
Mrs. Sauisbury stepped out in front of
her house it is alleged and
without warning began shooting at Mrs
Farmleth. Mrs. Farmleth ran and Mis.
Salusbury went in pursuit wih her artillery
at work. She tired four or five shots two of
them taking eff.-ct in Mrs. Farmleth. The
shooting took place on Thursday and the
victim died Saturday. The case will pro
bably occupy the court for a number of
days and bids fair to be very sensational.
