TUCEEE TALES EIGHT OUT
- "Washisgtok, May 29. The President
tad an unusual deluge of callers, to-day, on
account of his contemplated departure for
iJew York, and the impossibility of corner
ing him again for a day or two. Among
the numerous visitors was State Senator
Delamater, from Meadi-llle, whose call,
while it vras partly for the purpose of
meeting the President, was productiTe of a
little chat about the ileadyille and one
or two other postoffices in the -vrestern part
of the State. The handsome young Senator
and possible Governor pronounced himself
exceedingly well pleased with his Tislt
After two or three calls at department offices
he took the train for Philadelphia, in com
pany with Mr. Leech, Senator Quay's
private secretary, who goes to the Quaker
City for the Decoration Day ceremonies.
No definite word has been received in re
gard to the return of Senator Quay to the
city, but it is probable he will make his ap
pearance for a brief visit within a week
1BE KICK AGAINST MAHONE.
The most important incident of the Presi
dent's day was the reception in the East
Boom of about 150 Virginians, who have
besn holding a little convention of their
own here to protest against wholesale rec
ognition of Senator Mahone in the matter
of the Virginia appointments, and
to discuss some means by . which
harmony can be brought about in
the ranks of the party in the
State. General Brady, General Cameron
and Chairman Croner led the delegation,
and were proceeding in the regulation style
at speechmaking, when the President cut
them off by the courteous Information that
he would be glad to receive the address and
talk the matter over with them in a more
private way, but that his departure for
Brooklyn would preclude Ms listening to
HAD TO TAKE A W.&XK.
It was somewhat severe on the virtuous
Brady and his companions, as they had nice
little speeches prepared, but they had noth
ing to do but shut up and take a walk. The
address they have submitted to General Ma
hone, proposing methods by which they may
have a fair show at primaries and county
and State conventions, which are now run
by Mahone and his men with an absolute
bossism easily understood by most
Pennsylvania Bepublicans is a subject of
amused comment here this evening. It is
accepted by Mahone' friends as an admis
sion of complete defeat and a prayer for
mercy, and the impression is that the little
hut awfully vindictive and aggressive, .Re
publican boss will promise everything, but
jjo on exactly in the old way.
General Mahone, who is stopping at
Chamberlain's, looked, very serious when
asked what he was going to do about it, and
merely remarked that he supposed that the
poor fellows must have a fair show.
A TRADER FOR MEAT.
BeTcrly Tucker's Explanation of Hi Deal
tags With the Confederacy He
Occupied Only Legiti
rSFECUU. TXX.EGBAX TO TEX DIEFATCO.!
"WASHiirGros-.May 29. The withdrawal
;Lf he nominations, of theHayti Commis
Eibners is still a subject of inquiry, but as
yes no hint of the explanation has come
from the taciturn President or his close
mouthed private secretary. Secretary
Blaine is equally mysterious. General
Beverly Tucker claims to be yet wholly in
the dark in regard to the reasons for the
peculiar actions of the President and Secre
tarv, and could only guess at them as others
have been doing. He has not seen Mr.
Blaine since the occurrence.
In regard to his alleged connection with
war conspiracies Mr. Tucker unbosoms
.himself to an evening neWsVaper with the
following curious explanation:
As to the sensational stones about my being
associated with conspiracy, and tbe like at
tacks upon me, the whole thing is without an
iotaof truth. All that was answered in my ad
dress to the people dorms Johnson's adminis-
tration. The onjy positions I ever
held under the- Confederate Govern
ment were a perfectly legitimate
mission abroad to purchase quartermaster's
stores, and a mission to Canada to exchange
cotton for meat. I had nothing whatever to do
with any of the military operations of the
Confederacy. their gnns, or their soldiers, or
their military plans in any way, and I was in
absolute ignorance of them. I was in Canada
to trade cotton for meat, pound for pound.
President Lincoln and Secretary Seward were
aware of my mission; knew its character and
all about it.
President Lincoln issued a permit, "under
the Treasury resrulations," for Mr. W. G. Ford,
of this city, to go to Canada to trade with me.
The permit 'was written by Mr. Lincoln but
four or five months before bis assassination.
He wrote it while in a barber shop, resting tbe
paper on bis hat while be wrote. I had tbe per
mit, and would have it now battbat it wasleft
with my other valuable papers in tbe bank of
Baron, Forbes tCo in .Mexico. You know 1
was in Mexico dnnng tbe last years of Maxi
milian's reign, and left with Marshal Bazaine.
When I left I placed a trunk with ray papers
In tbe bautar Mr. Kmilio Baron, tbe President,
died, and I never got them again. Bnt Mr.
Ford is living in New York,! believe. Mr.
Lincoln pave this permit but abont four months
before bis death. Do you think it likely that I
should want bus killed?
I came back to this country daring Mr.
Grant's administration, and have been here
since. Wben I went to San Francisco, Secre
tary Sherman and Secretary Evarts intrusted
to me an important service. President Garfield
appointed me one of the board of visitors to
tbe naval academy. There was no cry against
me at that time.
General Tucker said that while in Canada
he and Mr. Clay were in the same house,
and he often saw Clay and Thompson, but
that he heard nothing at all of the business
of those gentlemen, and purposely avoided
learning. Never a word passed between
them on the subject of Mr. Clay's mission,
.and he (Tucker) would always leave if any
one called to see Clay on business when he
was in the room, lie didn't know, or sus
pect, or care to know what Clay and Thompson-were
doing. He had no interest in the
military or political intrigues. His mis
sions as that of trading for meats.

Pennsylvania got four. John C. Hilton, of
Erie, was selected to succeed H. C Shannon,

against Thomas Mnttley, of Lewiston, or

Joseph Ij. McKinnev is appointed to suc
ceed the former and Henry A. Parsons, Jr.,
the latter. Olyphant has just become a

Washington, May 29. Among the ap

weighs only 87 pounds, although she
weighed 178 before she was taken ill. In

Mrs. Althouse is so weak that without

SOME BILLS TO BE VETOED.
Governor Beaver Takes Action on n Number
rSPECIAt. TXXXGKAX TO THE SISPA.TCS.1
HAKBlSBtrsa, May 29. Governor Beaver
took action on a number of bills to-day; but
its nature has not been disclosed. He has
fully determined to disapprove the item in
the general appropriation bill providing for
the payment of various sums of money to
the legal heirs of Judges Williams, of Alle
gheny; Knox, of Clarion, and Trunkey, of
Venango, ana Auditor General Norris, be
cause of the unconstitutionality of the legis
lation. The dress uniform appropriation of
$75,000 will share the same fate.
It is stated on good authority that the
Governor will permit the judicial salary
bill to become a law by limitation. The
Governor under the Constitution is allowed
30 days in which to dispose of bills, which,
if not approved or disapproved at the ex
piration of that time, are laws the same as
if they had been signed.

THURSDAY, MAT "SO,
"HITCH YOUR WAGON TO
A STAR," '
This remark of Emerson's has
puzzled the critics not a little.
Some think that the sage meant by
this phrase to inculcate the beauty
of high aims and high ambitions.
We think this interpretation a mis
take; we think he meant to say:
"Do not Avaste your strength in
vain strivings against the laws of
nature. Be wise, study the laws of
nature; follow the courses of na
ture and those great natural forces
will carry you with them, with lit
tle effort on your part It is easier
to float down the current of a
stream than to attempt to stem the
tide. In brief, "Hitch your wagon
to a star" and the star will draw it
on. It is akin to the phrase, "Make
hay while the sun shines."
That is what we are trying to do
by harping so persistently on the
subject of Millinery.
May and June are the great
months for Millinery. All the
maids and matrons are now deck
ing themselves with the daintiest
of fineries, and now is our time to
say what we have to sayto win
custom, and that is this:
Our assortment of Millinery
Goods compares favorably in taste,
variety and moderate prices with
any establishment in the United
States. Our Milliners are artistes
of unquestioned good taste; origi
nators, not mere imitators. For
these reasons we believe a visit to
our Millinery Parlors will be a
pleasure to you, as well as to us.
