Prow Our Own Correspondent. NAPLES, ITALY, Feb. We have returned soaked and disap pointed from Vesuvius. Our clothes ami our tempers have bten ruined. Cook, tlie excursion fiend, has fallen in oar esti- mation, and Vesuvius is simply beneath our notice. We went to the crater in n i ain that was sufficient to have put tbe volcano. We have jolted milrs in u springless wagon, we have ridden spring less donkeys, we have waded in ashes tc our ankles, and all this in the interest o pleasure. We left Naples about t) o'clock in the morning, under the supei vision of Cook and in one of Cook's wagons. The morning was not altogether promising but "hope springs eternal" and we thought the day would prababty be clear. Naples was just beginning to really wake up for the dny, for the doict far nientt- of the people begins by lying in bed in the morning At last we reached the open country, and while the clouds gathered overhead our spirits were kept up by a of strolling musicians, who walked along by the carriage and sang "Santa Lucia" and other delightful songs, varying occasionally by variety with A1 the top of the funiclairc we were jy a new relay of jjoides, who took ojf heir big coats and wrapped them dto t the drenched women iu the party. ts carried by four men were to be Md for those unable te walk to the emfe r. A guide went akead of each of Bf, id throwing a strap over his shoul- dnv old us to hold on tight and lean back One's sympathy for the guide nts his leaning back very far at wt latersympathyis lost in fatigue ne resigns himself to being pulled yip the hill through the deep ashes. i 'atcr was pointed out to us, and warned not to go too close, but w nothing but a place a little more ffeggj than the dense mist covering the tain; we saw the running lava, wfcicl looked temptingly warm, and the ndph ir, which was a bright yellow and until' d like the Diamond match factory, g us think of home. Descending the hi I again to the funiculaire, the ladies hung imply on the arms of tfce guides, and r> gardless of best shoes and silk un- dersk rts, suffered themselves to be drajr- jted t trough the fine, grey ashes, too wear; and wet to protest. At t le lower station a stop of several bows was made in anticipation of a etearii g up of the weather, a hope that prove' to be vain, however. During this a large blank book 11 which tourists may find a place to rel: :ve tkeir feelings, furnished us di- vers! o i. We were called upon to be proud of our erudite countrymen and wome i when we found these inscriptions after he big, black V. S. A.r "It must bcseei to be appreciated." "Grand be- yond i II description." "I imagined it a "Daisy honor our nationality, fonlac fanned bT a hot and raginggod- and seeming disappointed when we failed her wrath." Another to look appreciative. We stopped at a little mountain inn, where our honest had w itten: "We should have had it for and still another, of a less practii jl nature, summed up the descrip- tion c it in three words: "Grand, (loom and a man who had 1 theascent had written y ts dark, and cold nnd dreary, n in and mists are never weary. 'it If t< a windy, chill and damp Jfor au rht but to snuffle, cuss and stamp." driver, who probably shared profits with the proprietor, told us we could get the best wine in all Italy. At the next stop 1 left the CP triage and mounted dankeys to cross the lava fields. Then Nature's feelings overcame her, and as if in an- ticipation of the fate that awaited us, began to weep. Everyone commented r ort the fact, a.nd we the diabolical beasts, at said wfien the French Started to with "light hearts." When we that spot on our return, we had seen1 Vesuvius, but a strange silence had fallen on all the party, those who found voice nt nil lifted it in declaring that henceforth their mission would be to dis- suade others from the ascent of the vol- cano. An incompatibility had sprung np between all the metribeis of the com- pany, and eyes that looked love at the beginning of the trip were now singuhir- ly inexpressive behind straightened bangs and under dripping bats. Probably the donkeys were no noise than other donkeys, but the road they had to travel was but n rotigh path and it seemed to me that any self-respecting donkey would uot have taken advantage of so many the road for tUe pur- pose of stumbling as these innocent-look- ing animals did. The saddles were not fastened securely, nnd the guides, one of whom accompanied each riderand shout- ed dreadful threats to the donkeys, were expected to hold the saddles on. When the donkey fell down, the saddle slipped forward and cuffed the animal on the head. When he went tip hill it settled j Mrs. w 1 Kelfett, Alfred Wakeman, insecurely on his tail, and finally, when I je, -ie Masse and Masse, of the guide had grown tired of holding it j.thH and Mrs. w, E. Nigntengale, ot on, it tumbled off altogether. (Jiicngc Two brothers nnd two sisters The rain at last begnn to pour, and d. ceased reside st Batavia. N. Y. p 9'OtUfa VkjiCt In I.ML Last friday morning Mr. Nelson Masse, an old resident of this city, was found dead, f his rooms on Main street. He had no been seen on the streets for sev- eral da B, and his friends becoming anx- ious a! out him, visited his rooms and rappad upon the door. Receiving no re- sponse, a key was procured and the door was un ocked, when they were shocked to find Mr. Masse lying upon the bed, dressed only in his night clothes, his throat ut from ear to ear, and a razor m bis tand. It was supposed that he had bet i dead several days. It was at first the ught to be a case of murder, bat thtre w is no signs of a struggle and the -com i as in perfect order. There is hardly doubt but that Mr. MasK fbok hit own life in a moment of deaperation. Since tl death of his wife, which occur- jed foui years ago, he has been in poor Itealth, and at times seemed very de- tpondei t. Mr. Masse had many friends ia this c ty, and his family has the sym- pathy o "our citizens. He is is survived liyafar ily of five children, as follows: the wind rushed violently down the mountain. It was impossible to hold umbrellas, and cold, wet and dishearten- ed, the party reached the station ot the fnniculaire road that leads up the steep, yielding, ashy cone to within few hun- dred yards of the crater of the volcano. The only fire in the restaurant was. the kitchen, and the head-waiter, -who speaks five languages, and probably gets about a montk, invited us to warru ourselves, an invitation we gladly ac- cepted. "When the world had assumed a brighter hne, through the medium of an omelette and steak, we started up the mountain again. The road is almost perpendicular, nnd one feels much more aa if the ascent was being, made in an elevator than on a rail track. It is called a fnniculaire, but is really a cable with double tracks, and the cars are balanced so they pass each other midway of the distance. On either tide are tbt great fields of lava and ashes, tfie former, of course, now cooled and in the most fan- tastic shapes, in as in clouds, one most clearly what bis fancy suggests. Perhaps it was tbe influence of tbe donkey ride and the weather, bnt it stemed to me Core's UhntratfoiM of might have been these format ions. ,Mr. I [asse was born at Montreal, Canada July He was educa- ted in 1 he state of Vermont, and after iraving school went to Buffalo, N. Y., where h- was engaged as a clerk in a dry st are for ten years. From Buffalo (move to Batavia, where he was pro- f the Monitor House, one of the I otels of that city, IS' 1 Mr. Masse came to Oshkosh, f d wil i his brother-in-law, the late jKitlip B snah, engaged in the wholesale jaor b siness, under the firm-name of Besnah, on. the corner of Main nd Cea streets. The; firm did a large nd aucc ssfnt business for several years, it the i anic of 1873, together with the g fire c "1876, caused them to make an signmi nt.

SECTARIAN POOLS. NO At'fJtOf-KJATrOX fOl TBEit. Mr. Linton, of Michigan, Wins a in tbe House on tlw Quest on of Ap- propriations. was opposed by Eddy (rep., Minn Walsh (dem., N. Sherman (rep., N. V.) nnd Gamble U.) The democrats voted almost against Mr. Linton's amendment, the republicans were divided. The an- nouncement of the result was met with i storm of approval from the galleries which seemed in sympathy the ma jority on the floor. WASHINGTON, C., Feb. the House in committee of the whole, af- ter a eery interesting debate, by a vote of 93 to 64, decided that none of the ap- propriation! on tbelndianappiopriation bill for Indian schools should go to sec- tarian schools. The only sectarian schools to which money now goes are Roman Catholic in denomination, and the fight to-day led by Me. Linton, a Michigan republican, who it the most pronounced and openly avo-wH member of tbt American Protective Association on the floor. In last year's bi I the ap- propriation was cut 20 per cent with the understanding that it should 1 reduced 20 per cent, each year until it ceased at the end of fiveyeara. The comi littre on Indian affair3 pursuing that peliey this year recommended that this a ipropria- tionbc again reduced 20 per bat Mr. Linton moved an amendment to the effect that no portion of this a ipropria- :ion should go to sectarian sclu ols. When the portion of the bill relating to Indian schools was reached M Linton rep., made a speech against the appropriation of mcney for ,ectarian schools. He recalled the fact thai br had two years ago denounced the Jolicy ot appropriating money for these institu- tions.. He had warned members tlten, and his warning had not effect- ve. The result was the absenc of men whose faces had been familiar in the halls of congress for years. said he, the storm o ballots and! the flood of indignation which over- whelmed them will be but as zephyr and a rivulet compared with what will happem if congress persists in thit policy." Every member of the Mr. Lin- ton said, knew that tbe peadjjBfctH car- ried for sectarian dollar of which would jo i OKctjjfeflOaj ,j were educated in these schools. T, not be argued, he said, tliat these children would suffer. The Roman Catholic church would take care of its own. It was powerful enough. It hnd a rightto, hut not with public money. "It may be j that I am thought an extremist on this said he, "but I know I i m right aud I know the people are with me. Both political parties, IK deelar 'd, were pledged to the completedivorce of church and state. He said, the' nature of the pressure upon members; ic knew the lobby was at work, but tha would not deter him from doing hisdt.ty. He referred to the fact that the stntt ot Wis- consin had presented to congres'. a stat- ute ot Pere Mnrquette, which was soon to be set up statuary halt. H would be the first churchman represented there. "It may he continued, "that Father Stephen that a time the statute of Pere Marquette, robe 1 in the gown of a Jesuit priest and de-orated with the paraphernalia of his church, is to be erected in this nation's sanctuary, made holy by the presence of the martyr- ed Lincoln, is a good time to torcea quarter of a million dollars the hands oi congress. But I warn h m that he is mistaken, and I warn membt rs that the people will not tolerate such an un- constitutional appropriation ot public funds." Mr. Cooper (rep., Wis.) annourced his unalterable opposition to the pr wiaiov in the bill appropriating 60 per .-ent. of the appropriation of 1895 for the sectar- ian schools. He had voted against it last year and would do so this, md for the tame reason.. Public money lor sec- tarian schools was nn-republicsn, un- democratic and un-American, lie'did not speak as a member of the American Protective Association; he was not a member; but as an American If tbe support of the government was with- drawn the Catholic chnrch won d sup- port her schools, as other church ;s did. There were Catholic c Mamu- nicants. If each paid 6 cents i year would IK realized. Mr. Cooper concluded by quoting tbe clause of the constitution relatimj: to re- freedom, written by Thomas Jef- ferson, which be said Jefferson wa i more proud of anything he ever wrote, except the declaration of independence. Mr. Cooper's remarks were warriljr ap- planded by the galleries and a sea- teriae; on the floor JMt. LitrUm'i amendment support- ed by Mr. McLachiam (rep., Cal) He Believed that Loyalty to tha Gov- ernment Should be "First. The controversy which sprang up ovei tbe late General Sherman's religious con- victions on account of the of his children, while the General was in a com- atose state, in bringing in a priest of tbe Roman Catholic church to apply ante- mortem nnction, has been the topic oi considerable comment and conversation among the hero's personal friends, says the Philadelphia Enquirer. The General never made any secret of his notions on religion. The strong Roman practice of members of his family caused him to be very decided in his expressions of hostili- ty to the Roman church, but beyond that he bad no fixed views in matters of relig- ious convictions or denominational de- tail. In conversation with a correspond- ent of the fingmrerwhen theGeneral -was at a white heat of indignation and dis- appointment over his son's going into the society of Jesuits, the General said: "Oh yes, I am disappointed! I am more than that; I am very mad, all over. Mrs. Sherman and I agreed to disagree on the girls being under their mother's influence, but I clnimed the boys. Their mother was very devoted to the church, and I never interfered with her in that matter, but I believe that loyalty belongs to the government first. I do not want to say that a man cannot be a good American citizen and a loyal subject to the pope, but if be an is-jue affecting the iufety of American in- stitutions in conflict with tbe supremacy of the Roman Catholic church, they will put the pope above tke president. We may not see it, yet some living to-day may. 1 believe that onr constitution, with the institutions which have grown out of it, is the grandest heritage given to tbe human roOL.__It Is above, becuusi- it owes no to any power wiveilotl <-ittd the ix-'jple A3 ILLICIT ST11L. Detected Defrauding: tbe Government. MO.NTHEAI-, Qre., Feb. excisemen have seized an illicit still at the Trappist monastery of Oka. For some eighteen months past the of the Inland Revenue department were aware of the fact that quite a lot of whiskey was coming into town from the little settlement of Oka. It was known thataceitain druggist in this city was receiving from there more whisky than could naturally be sold for medical pur- poses, and that Oka was not a way sta- tion from any big distillery Duringthesecighteen months the source of the whisky comine; from that locality was only guessed at, but the week before last it waa thought should be taken to settle the mystery. Consequently, Mr. Brabant, inland revenue officer, accom- panied by an assistant, went to the mon- astery and made a search. They found a full-Hedged whisky still of twenty-fire gallons per dny at work in the monas- tery. Tbe superiors admitted the mat- ter looked serious, but claimed that the whisky was distilled without their knowl- edge. Seizing the machinery, the revenue officer returned to Montreal. Later an, two monks from Oka called at the inland revenue office here and offered to pay the fine for tbe illicit distillation of whisky. They were referred to the government at Ottawa. The Tiappist monastery in question is a large concern. It is on a farm, acres in extent, in which are a cheese fuc- y, a dairy, and saw-mills. The mon- astery also runs a hotel which does a good bttstnessduringthetnmmerraonths. The monks make considerable wine; last season they bought eight car-loads of grapes, which they converted into wine, and during tbe same period sold about gallons of wine. The Matter is naw before the government. Death of Mrs. B. L. Tuesday afternoon occurred the death of Mrs. L. Wkkwire, at the family residence on Algoma street. Mrs. Wick- wire has been sick for a year and a half, and during that time she has had the bast of care and the sympathy of tbe en- tire community. The deceased was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jas. B. Kt ane- dy, and wns 32 years of age M the time She enjoyed the friendship a large circle of in wmicnlier death -will be grtfttiyaiownied.
