"Washington, Mcrch 26. Trouble
from the Greenbackers is pretty sure to
come, if the fourteen adhere to their
resolution in caucus to vote together
upon all financial questions and against
attaching political amendments to the
appropriation bills. That would leave
the Democrats with a majority of only
three votes, including Speaker Ran
dall's, for Hendrick Wright has gone
back to the Greenback caucus again.
Most of them say they would vote for
the amendments to the election laws if
presented separate from an appropria
tion bill. They and the Republicans
have resolved not to pair with the
Democrats, and that will add to the
embarrassment of the majority, if
strictly adhered to. Counting them
with the Republicans the vote would
stand 145 to 143. They cannot afford to
take too extreme ground against the
Democrats rs ; .accessions: to their
strength cannot reasonably be expected
from the Republican party. They ad
mit that, but say they mean to force the
Democrats to give them fair play on
the currency question.

The act to raise revenue makes some
changes, a note as to which may be
more easily understood than the wrhole
law would be.
The poll tax is reduced from 89 to 72
cents. That on real and personal prop

bonds, stocks, joint-stock companies or
otherwise, is reduced from 29 to 24
cents, to be applied as follows: 12 in

6 in place of 9 cents to the insane and

cents as heretofore t6 the penitentiary.

And "any grocer, druggist, dealer or
other person who shall sell spirituous

The merchants' "privilege tax" is
changed by repeal of the $5.00 item.
Every person or pompany running
sleeping cars upon any railroad in this
State is to pay $50 yearly for even,- car

Any merchant, dealer or agent selling
sewing machines shall pay a tax of $10
in each county, but the payment of a

It is alleged in the preamble to an act
to regulate marriageable kinship, that
"many persons in this State, in estimat
ing what degree of kinship is nearer than
first cousins, compute kinship by the
half-blood as being only half so near as
the same degree of kinship by the whole
blood." "Wherefore, on February 27,
1879, it was enacted that "hereafter, in
this State, whenever the degree of kin
ship shall be estimated with the view
to ascertain the right of kinspeople to
marry, the half-blood shall be counted
as the whole blood: Provided, however,
That nothing herein contained shall be
so construed as to invalidate any mar
riage heretofore contracted in case
where by counting the half-blood as the
whole blood the persons contracting
such marriage would be nearer of kin
than first cousins; but in every such
case the kinship shall be ascertained by
counting relations of the half-blood as
being only half so near kin as those of
the same "degree of whole blood."

THE WOMAN WHO REALLY SUFFERS.
A Mr?. Mary Oliver Whose Hair has Turned Gray
From the Philadelphia Times.
Washington, March 20 There is a
lady in Washington who might justly
bring a suit against both plaintiff and
defendant in the Oliver-Cameron case
for consequential damages. To the best
of my belief the only real sufferer from
wounded feeling in the matter is an
other Mrs. Mary Oliver, who is utterly
innocent of aught save the misfortune
of having the same name as the plain
tiff and having been rightfully appoint
ed from Pennsylvania to a clerkship in
the treasury department at the instance
of Simon Cameron wThen Senator. He
knew her husband, who was one of the
staunch supporters of the clan Cameron,
and advised him to run for Congress.
Mr. Oliver did so and was defeated, and
lost fortune and courage to battle wdth
life. He died not long afterward, and
his widow was appointed, at Senator
Cameron's instance, to a clerkship in the
office of the comptroller of the currency,
which she has for several years filled
with credit to herself, and has earned
the esteem of all associated with her.
The similarity of name with that of
Senator Cameron's pursuer, as well as
the fact that the other was also appoint
ed at his request to a clerkship in the
same department, has, from the time
the suit began, two years ago, until
nowr wrought untold 'wretchedness to
the innocent woman. Xaturally she
has been perpetually confounded" with
the litigant. The day after the suit first
commenced newspaper men began in
sisting on interviewing her. When she
has denied being the plaintiff she has
rarely been believed by strangers, and
she suffers in consequence. Her hair
has actually turned gray since the suit
was instituted as a result of the con
stant mortification to which she is sub
jected. She has told my mother more
than once of nights of agony following
the blunders which have pained and
humiliated her whenever she has been
brought in contact with strangers, and
the not surprising refusal of those un
acquainted With her to credit her de
nials of being the "Simon-pure" Oliver.
It certainly is a very hard case, and it
seems to me the least the clau Cameron,
which possesses so much influence with
the Pennsylvania Legislature, can do is
to have her name changed.
Report of the Democratic Committft Aiioptnl in
Caucus Possible Action of lb Opposition.
TSpecial to Baltimore Sun.
Washington, JMarch 2tL The pro
ceedings of the joint Democratic cau
cus of the two houses this afternoon
were entirely harmonious, although
wide differences of opinion were devel
oped. When the report of the caucus
committee was presented Senator Bay
ard made a speech of some length, m
which he reiterated the views which he
had several times expressed in opposi
tion to placing political legislation on
the appropriation bills. In reply to him
the point was made that the only feasi
ble plan of securing the legislation de
sired, was througli the appropriation
bills. Some who were present objected
to making any offer of compromise, as
presented in the report of the caucus
committee, and thought that the Demo
cratic majority in the two housesshould
take and hold'to the position assumed
by the last House, and insist on the ab
solute and unconditional repeal of the
election laws. It "was contended that
the President would be just as likely to
agree to this as to the modified provis
ion. However, the report of the com
mittee was adopted by an overwhelm
ing vote. In regard to the matter of
enacting legislation outside of the ap
propriation bills there was no decision
reached, but most of the leading Sena
tors and members are opposed to it.
Those who favor general legislation ar
gue that the Senate will probably be oc
cupied a week or ten days in debating
the appropriation bills, as it is accepted
as a foregone conclusion tnat the Re
publican Senators will oppose the polit-
hical legislation to the last moment.
Lengthy and exciting debates may
therefore be looked for in the Senate.
X While these debates are going on it is
argued the House may as well proceed
regularly with business. But, really,
it will be much better for the House,
while it is waiting on the action of the
Senate, to adjourn from day to day.
Otherwise it may get into mischief and
disgust the country.
It is expected that the two appropria
tion bills, the army and the legislative,
executive and judicial, w7ill be intro
duced tc -morrow, and the Democratic
programme should be to pass them
with little or no debate. As there is no
previous question in the Senate the Re
publicans in that body will have all the
opportunity that they desire to ventil
ate their views and make party capital.
It is rumored around to-night that if
the attempt is made to-morrow to in
troduce the appropriation bills objec
tion will be made by one of the Green
back members. An objection could not
consistently come from the Republi
cans, as they have proclaimed daily
their opinion' that the appropriation
bills should be speedily passed, and Con
gress should adjourn. If objection
should be made the bills cannot be re
ceived, it is claimed, under the rules of
the House. The purpose of those who
contemplate making objection is said
to be to force Speaker Randall to at
least appoint the committee on appro
priations at once, if not other commit
tees. On the subject of the committees
there is great curiosity and anxiety, and
the Speaker realizes that he has an ex
ceedingly difficult task before him.

From reliable sources of information,
it is apparent the citizens of Mobile have
determined upon a most rigid and early
quarantine, should there be the least ap
pearance of fever in this city the com

have voluntarily resolved themselves
into what may be termed a quarantine
brigade, and the slightest report started
in regard to sickness in New Orleans

into active service, like a body of min
