DOYLESTOWN, May SS -I. Monroe Schel- lenberger, the lawyer whose forgeries and other criminal escapades and Night re- cently caused such a widespread sensation, was yc.ste.rday sentenced by .luilge Yerkes to undergo an imprisonment of twenty- two years In the Eastern penitentiary. The prisoner waa almost completely prostrated by the sentence, and had to have assistance in leaving the court room There were seventeen of indictmen agalnat prisoner, covering the crimn of forgery and embezzlement. The ordea o( entering court room proved too much for tbe once popular and talented lawyer, who, district attorney of Bucks county, had made his brilliant reputation at the bar of thin very court. As he en tered he shrank from the gaze of his form- er friends, and kept his head bowed. Con- gressman Robert Yard ley, who came on from Washington to assist iu bis sat at one of the tables. AH the bills of indictment were read loud groans and sobs i-ame from Schellenberger. I IKI.LKNBKKOKR ACTS LIKE A MADMAN. His counsel entered tbe plea of guilty in each case. Sbellenberger acted at like a madman. He opened his handker- chief and threw it over head, rubbing his head and face with it, and nervously shook the railings of the dock with his hands and feet. Eventually he leaned bis head forward on the rail and buried it iu his arms, rocking himself on the seat like a pwsou buffering from acute pain. At one time Shellenberger groaned so loud and sobbed with such anguish that the I judge, in a nervous sort of way, told the district attorney to hasten his work and get it over. After all tbe were read and a plea of guilty was en- tered in each case, witnesses were called to show the character and extent of Shel- lenberger's rascalities. Several witnesses UiKtitieil, and as the testimony was brought out bearing upon the most ag- gravated and unpardonable cases of ras- cality and deceit, Shelleuberger rocked himself violently in the dock, tossed his head, moved his hands about like a wild man and cried aloud. Judge Harmon Yerkes, an old-time per- sonal acquaintance and a professional and political asxociate of the prisoner for many years, pronounced the sentence of I lie court. It was anticipated that he won Id gi ve Shellen berger a heavy sentence, but nothing like what he gave him was looked for. THK I'KISONER WEEPS VIOLENTLY. Judge Yerkes drew himself up and ad- dressed the prisoner in a low, husky voice, in which there seemed a slight tremor of emotion Shelleuberger never raised his head, but went on groaning and weeping violently. Finally the words dropped from tbe judge's lips, "Twenty-two years at Military confinement with hard labor." Shellenberger gave a groanof anguish and almost sank to the floor. The scene caused unite a commotion. The blow seemed to stun the prisoner. It waa necessary to partly curry him from tbe conrt room. The sentence was discusser! by the farmers and the people iu Doylestown on every side Nothing like it was ever heard in Bucks county. Wbile pity seemed to have been awakened in some quarters by the prisoner's exhibition of anguish in the court room, the general run of old fanners, who reflected upon what Shellenberger had been doing for years, seemed to think that it was just. Referred to the Census Committee. WASHINGTON, May 33. protests that have been made in a number of newspa- pers to members of congress concerning the questions to be asked by census enum- erators, caused Representative McAdoo of New Jersey to Introduce the following res- olution in the house yesterday: Whereas.

WASHINGTON, May 38.-The house com- mittee on the judiciary yesterday decided by a vote of 80 to 7 to report favorably a joint resolution proposing a constitutional amendment granting tbe right ol suffrage to women. The house and senate conferees ou the amendments made to the general pension bills by the house, reached a partial agree- ment, agreeing to the feature requiring, dependency to be shown before a penslen is allowed. Mr. Dawes Introduced In the senate yes- terday a proposed amendment to the commerce law, to add the following clause: Provided, however, that agree- ments to apportion the carriage of com- petitive traffic for the purpose of enabling each competing line to carry a reasonable share of such traffic may be entered into by common carriers subject to the provis- ions of this act and shall be lawful between the parties thereto; but this provision shall not be construed to relieve such com- mon carriers from other provisions of tbe act. The engrossing clerks of the house of representatives did not complete the en- grossment of the tariff bill yesterday as they expected, and It will not reach the senate this afternoon. It will be imme- diatelyCcferred to the finance committee, which will determine upon an order of business in relation to It at a regular meet- ing Tuesday next.

Kimball THE ULTIMATE SUCCESS OF THE MOVEMENT PREDICTED. ItoMberry AddreuM a Large Ing; ol the National Federation League The Italian Ouvernnient Situation Between Russia aad Anitrla. LONDON, May 23.-An important and numerously attended meeting of the Na tfcnal Federation league was held yester- day, over which Earl Roseberry presided tbe of bis remarks, laying before the meeting tbe business which callec them together, Roseberry expressed the opinion that the preseit was not an opportune time for a conference on the question of Imperial federation, owing to tbe fact that a strong wave in favor o colonial federation was now sweeping over Australia. The antipodean colonists, he were far more eager now to bring to a successful issue their own federation schemes than te accomplish anything in the way of imperial federation, and the latter question moat therefore bide its time.

Hill, member for South Bristol, alluding to the opposi- tion of the American refiners to the pro- posed abolition of duties in America on sugar below sixteen Dutch staudgfc, asked the government ifhe would againui- vtte the Washington government to join the sugar con vent ion. Sir.Tames Fergnson, un- der foreign secretary, said it was uncertain what the the American congress would finally decide upon in the matter of the tariff. There was no ground for the thought that a renewal of the invitation to the AVashington government to the con- vention would be successful. Mr. E. W. Beckett, member for Whitby, asked the assurance of the government that English into rests in Africa would not be sacrificed to Germany. For the pur- pose of discussing the matter he moved to reduce the foreign office vote. Sir James Fergusson said the govern- ment was mindful of the Interests of the country, but must respect the aspirations of other countries if they would expect their own to be recognized.

BERLIN, May the people of the village of St. Mahlen, near Hildesheim, were assembled in the church, whither they had repaired yesterday to pray for the cessation of the hail storms which have of late prevailed in that locality with damaging effect, the building was struck by lightning.
