Huntington. Pa., July 6. Carter
township, this county, is in a fever of ex

ure, consisting of gold nuggets worth $7,G66,
by Warden Hoyt, of the State Penitentiary,
at Canon City, Col. The "Warden got a tip
of the hidden wealth from a life convict,
but recently dead. About 15 years ago,
James Hoover, a resident of Franklin
county, in this State, in order to avenge a
wrong done to his sister by a physician of
that county, snot and killed the latter.
Before h'e could be apprehended, he fled,
finally locating at one of the numerous
mining camps in Colorado. There he met a
man, George Simpson, of Ohio, and the two,
after joining fortunes, finallystruck it rich.
When they had amassed a considerable for
tune in gold-dust and nuggets, Simpson Jell
ill, and during his sickness. Hoover, bis
partner, decamped with all their wealth.
Fearing to remain longer in that part of the
country, Hoover decided to come East
again and brave the chances of being ar

Hearing that his parents had moved from
Franklin county to near McConnellstown,
in this county, he came here in search of
them. His search, however, proved un
availing, and as nothing ofuld be learned of
his parents, he left the neighborhood of Mc
Connellstown and started north in the direc
tion of Alexandria, 12 miles distant. When
half this distance had been covered Hoover
became verv weary with the weight of his
treasure, and, stopping by the wayside on
the farm of Michael T. Branneman, he hid
his gold nuggets under the roots of a white
He then made a careful draft of the sur
rounding country, entering into the
minutest details, and after familiarizing
himself with the surroundings, he resumed
his journey. Hoover's iruitless search for
his parents continued until the latter part
of the year 1878, when he returned to Colo
rado without taking with him the gold nug
gets which nc had buried on the Brenneman
farm. On his sectnd visit to Colorado he
encountered Simpson, his former partner,
whom be had robbed, and at firt sight both
opened fire on each other, resulting in the
killing of Simpson.
For this Hoover was arrested, tried and
sent to the State Penitentiary for life, and,
after serving ten years there, he died last
A CONVICT'S WILL.
Besides the mark of the place where he
had hidden the gold in this country 11 years

and a will in which he bequeathed to
Warden Hoyt, of the Canon City Peniten

sisted principally of his buried gold nuggets.
Armed with the necessary papers, Warden
Hoyt came East, found Hoover's father in a
remote part of Franklin county, and a week
ago the two arrived in this city in search of
the hidden treasure. Going to McConnells
town, they lollowed up the route taken ten
cars ago by James Hoover, and by careful
Inquiry located in a general way the place
where the gold was hidden.
On Tuesday ot this week they reached
the home of Michael T. Brenneman, and
upon exhibiting to him the map of the
groui.d found to their joy that their search
was about to be rewarded, for Farmer Bren
neman instantly recognized the map as a
diagram of his property. Leaving Mr.
Brenneman, as he savs, stupefied by their
startling recital, Warden Hoyt and the old
man Hoover repaired to the foot of the
white oak tree along the roadside, and there
beneath its overlapping roots, but little
covered by the soil, they unearthed the
golden treasure which 11 years before James
Hoover, the fugitive, had hidden.

tfrrCI.41. TELECHAM TO THE DICrATCH.
Xew York, July 6. Assistant District
Attorney Parker spent most of this after
noon in taking down the statements of
newly returned victims of Liverpool Jack,
the boarding house runner, against whom
indictments are already pending for kid
naping. The men arrived on the
Steamship Saratoga from Yucatan on
Thursday. The men said that
Jocole Goldstein, an emigrantrunner, intro
duced them to .Liverpool J act last spring.
Liverpool Jack shipped them to Yucatan,
making all sorts of golden promises. They
went to work there at Progresso for the
Progressive Commercial Agency like others
of Liverpool Jack's victims. They say
that they had to work 14 hours
a day, to sleep on the sand, were beaten and
robbed, were supplied with poor food nnd
were maltreated generally. In paying the
men their wages, though, the agent, they
say, gave them bat $22 ol the $32 which was
owing them. He said that Liverpool Jack
always charged him 10 for each man sent
down and received, and that he proposed to
take the money right out of their wages.
When the men stepped off the steamship
here the first person they saw was Goldstein,
the runner, who first introduced them to
Liverpool Jqpk. The men went to Gold
stein's and were entertained royally. On
Thursday they were taken down to Cant
Ion's saloon on Washington street, where
they met Liverpool Jack and had innumer
able drinks of beer. They were
told that if they kept their mouths
shut and would not go near
Castle Garden they would get $20 apiece.
Then Liverpool Jack took them all
up to Howe & Hummel's office and they
signed statements. They say they were told
by Goldstein that "the little man" who
took the statements down was "the judse."
Then all went back to Jacob Goldstein.
The men say they did not get their 820
apiece, but that Goldstein finally told them
that they could take $3 apiece or go to the

Fort Worth, Tex., July 6. The crowds

by fonr shots fired in rapid succession in the

Inside the store stood John W. Davies with

Paddy Byan declares no man .can with

Sullivan's friends are wild With apprehen
sion lest there should be no fight, as their
man was never in such condition before,
and is certain to win beyond accident thev
sav, and they fear that should the match
fail through, John will relapse into his
former pitiable condition.
The Kilrain people insist that their inten
tions are good, but a good many persons
who are well posted drew comparisons be
tween the care that is being taken of Sulli
van and the fact that Kilrain was running
around town three hours after bis arrival in
New Orleans, although he had just left the
train after a continuous ride of almost 1,000
miles, and should be lying down resting.
Kilrain did not remain down town very
long, taking a light lunch at Moreau's, on
Canal street, with Stevenson and Benaud,
but even his strongest admirers thonght he
ought to have been in bed, or at least be
kept quiet That little Question of the com
putation of time has not been settled, and is
likely to produce a long and vexatious
wrangle at the ring side.
THE BIG CROWDS PETEB OUT.
Bnd Benaud has, despite the action of
the mobile Governor, gone on quietly in the
nork of arranging for transportation to the
battleground. It was at first supposed that
full v 2,000 persons would want to go, but
the Northern and Western excursions have
petered out sadly. Dominick McCaffrey's
mammoth excursion from New York dwin
dled down to 19 persons when it reached
here this morning, and the great Police Ga
zette special train of cars, so extensively ad
vertised for some time, would have carried
just 12 persons.
For a town where they sell lottery tickets
at every corner, and pool rooms and other
gambling games are as plentiful as huckle
berries in summer time, there is very little
betting done on the result of the big fight.
Mr. Bat Masterson, of Denver, who three
months ago expressed the opinion that
KILRAIN WOULD WIN,
and that he proposed to bet on him, qualify
ing the statement by the remark that he
would be on hand to see that he would have
a square fight for his money, arrived this
morning, in company with a dozen or so
kindred sports from Ft. Dodge, Kansas
City. St Louis and Ft Worth. There were
some very slick men in the party, but some
of them were not smooth enough to escape
the nimble fingers and razor-like knives of
somebody on the train, for they ar
rived here minus several gold watches
and rolls of bank bills. One man had his
money sewed up in the sleeve of his coat;
when he arose this morning he was minus
the money, and a tailor had a job, the
sleeve being cut most dextrously.
The town is alive to-night with bad men,
and not since the war has there been so
many real bad men in New Orleans. Guns

Dominick McCaffrey, who is here, said in
regard to Kilrain's condition: "I saw Kil
rain stripped last night, before he retired to
his compartment, and I think be is in good
condition. The fight will, in my opinion,
be a long one, and will not be won without
a lot ofpunishment on both sides."
Another equally good judge who saw him
said: "While Kilrain is in fair condition,

this morning on the same train that bore his

Cincinnati yesterday morning Mr. Neil

arrangements to go along with them, and at
once put himself in communication with
General Manager Garrett and Superintend

following as closely as possible the tactics
successfully pursued with the Sullivan
train, in running through Mississippi. As
in Sullivan's case, the scheme worked ad

New Orleans to arrest a desperate criminal,
and who carried a Governor's requisi

strong dash of sporting blood in his com
position, told Kilrain and Mitchell that in
case' the train was stopped he would pro
duce his warrant and claim Kilrain as his
prisoner. The detective was accordingly
taken ou board the special, and a compart
ment adjoining Kilrain's was given him;
but he had no cause to use his warrant, as
they were not molested in any way by the
Mississippi authorities,although it was said
this afternoon by some members of the
party that the sheriffs were in waiting at

son, W. G. Harding, Ned Malahan, Denny
Butler and a delegation from the Southern
Athletic Club who had gone out from New
Orleans by the early morning train, sprang
up the stops of the car and gave him a
hearty welcome. After the party had been
introduced to Mitchell, Pony Moore, Dr.
Dougherty, of Philadelphia, Dominick Mc
Caflrey, and the press representatives on
board, the throttle was pulled out, and no
more stops were made until the Queen and
Crescent depot in this city was reached.
There was a large crowd assembled, al
though the rain was falling in such. torrents
that every street was a canal, and the gut

ot the thoroughfare, were rihing rivers.
The members of the Southern Athletic Club
had carriages waiting for the party, and
they were rapidly driven to the commodious

was then stripped, and after a bath, rubbed

tSrEClAI. TXXXGHAM TO THE DISPATCH.
New Orleans, July C. Your correspon
dent this evening interviewed Captain W.
H. Beanham, commanding officer of the
Louisiana Field Artillery, and who will
have charge of the militia in case it is called
out. as to the situation. There are but two
militia companies in New Orleans tbe Louisi
ana Field Artillery and tbe Louisiana Rifles,
the others bavins been sworn out of tho state
since a few months ago, because tbe Legisla
ture refused to make an appropriation for
them. Captain Beanham will command any
force of militia sent to suppress the figbt.
Captain Beanham admitted that the Governor
bad sent for him twice yesterday, and again to
day, and had finally placed him under orders to
hold himself in readiness to call his company
into active service at a minute's notice.
His Interview with tho Governor to-day had
been a long one, lasting several hours. Gov
ernor Nlcholls was very angry, and expressed
his sentimsnts very earnestly and emphatically.
He was determined that the fight should not
take place In Louisiana, and after consultation
with his legal and military advisors, was de
vising ways and means to prevent it. He
thought the affair had long since pissed the
bounds of endurance. Hit proclamations has
been set at naught and tne power of the State
derided, and be as Governor could not Ignore
it or refuse to prevent the fight.
THE CHANCES IN LOUISIANA.
Your correspondent asked Captain Beanham
what he personally thought of the matter, and
whether, in his belief, force could or would be
used sufficient to prevent tbe figbt coming off.
"1 am convinced," be replied, "that it will not
be fought in Louisiana, and that sufficient
stress has or will be taken to prevent this."
"But," he was asked, "have not tbe managers
given or pledged themselves that the figbt will
"No, I don't think they have," Captain Bean
ham replied. "They- have said that it would
take place, but you will notice that they have
never said that it would come off in Louisiana.

what Captain Beanham said that the managers
bad given Governor Nlcholls reason to think.
if they bad not given some pledge, that the
mill nould not occnr in Louisiana. Jnst before
tbe Sullivan-Ryan fight of 1882, the managers
were summoned before Governor McEnery, it
will be remembered, and made to promise, un
der heavy bonds, that they would go out of the
State to fight
If the battle does not come off in Louisiana,
there are but two other available points for it,

take the train

than they originally intended to go, and for
that reason start earlier. By starting at 1 or 2
o'clock tbe Mississippi line would be reached
before daylight. It is also definitely known
that tbe site chosen up to yesterday was again
changed this morning, the Sullivan people
waiving their claims to the requisite ten days'
Captain Beanham wouldn't say for what
service his company was called out, but left
the Impression that it would be at tbe depot
Monday morning, too, by tbe orders of the
Governor, either in the matter ot stopping the
outgoing train or for the purpose of going
along with it, escorting tbe party tc the Louisi
ana lino and making sure that no fight oc
curred this side of tbe Pearly river.
The managers, on their part,
preserve tbe same cool confidence
tbey have shown from tbe start. They will not
go into particular?, as they were disposed to do
at first, and say that tbe fight will come oil in
Louisiana or Mississippi, but simply insist that
It will bfi on time. They got the advice of a
number o' eminent lawyers to-day, who will be
called in by them In case tbe matter is taxen
into court, and all these lawyers are of opinion
thattbere is nothing in the Louisiana statutes
to stop a prize fight in anticipation, and
that tbe authorities can do nothing. The Dis
trict Attorney and Attorney General both de
clared that there was no law in Louisiana
against prize fighting, and that' nothing could
bebronirht against tbe pugilists themselves
except the trifling one of fighting and disturb!
mginepuDUC peace; anu it was very aououui
if tbe latter charge would lie, as the figbt
would take place on privateproperty, far re
moved from any settlement. The ring would be
PITCHED IN THE WOODS,
where no one would be disturbed and every1
precaution had been taken to properly police
the grounds and prevent disturbance of any.
"There is nothing In the world," they finally
said, "that will prevent a decision as to tbe
merits of the two men." If the military powers
of the State were called on and reached the
scene of battle in time, -the mill might
be temporarily stopped, "but if we
are interfered with in our rights."
he continued, "the people in authority will be
held to strict legal accountability. People have
come here from all parts of tbe country too see
this fight, and we can't afford to be at the head
of a fluke. If we cannot fight in Louisiana, we
wi!l fight somewhere else, but we promise you
there will be a fight Monday."
Nearly all tbe officials interested in
tbe administration ot criminal justice do not
see how the Governor can interfere under tbe
law. Tho opinions of Attorney General
Rogers and District Attorney Fenney have al
ready been given. Judge Marr, of the Crim
inal District Court, does not see what can be
done to stop tbe meeting, Tbe pugilists might
be brought before him, charged with being
about to break the peace, and might be placed
under bonds, but he could not make the bond
over $500, and be did not see what else could
legally be done in advance ot the battle.
IT MAY BE IN ARKANSAS.
An Application Blade to Governor Eagle for
Permission to Fight.
Little Rock, July 6. The action taken by
the Governors of Mississippi, Alabama and
Louisiana in regard to tbe Sulllvan-Kilraln
fight, has been the cause of considerable dis
cussion among tbe sporting men In this city.
No little surprise, notwithstanding this fact,
was occasioned inofficial circles at a late hour
to-night by tbe receipt ot the following tele

JIT. Nebo, Ahk., LulyS.

April cation made for fizbtlng ground for Sulli

Mt-Nebo is a beautiful mountain village
several thousand feet above the Arkansas
river and is quite a popular resort, where hun
dreds of Arkansans spend their summer, and
would doubtless make a good location
for the battle-ground. Joseph Evans is
owner of the resort' and a reliable
man. Governor Eagle was at first disposed to
treat the matter as a joke, but when convinced
that the telegram was genuine, replied that be
would not permit the fight to occur on Arkan
sas soil, ff he could prevent it. He said
to . a reporter that it seemed that a
great many obstacles had been thrown in the
way cf the pugilist and it might happen that
they wonld attempt to accomplish their pur
pose In Arkansas, but he supposed the sheriffs
and other officers wonld be on tbe alert to pre
vent it. "If it becomes necessary," said he,
with emphasis. for me to act I would use all
lawful means I could to defeat it"

Canadian competition be withdrawn. Forty
per cent of the grain coming to NewEngland
comes by Canadian roads in winter; in

The inter-State commerce law affects New
England adversely because all its traffic is
inter-State while New York has one line

The Canadian traffic- tended to neutralize
the effect this had; the Canadian lines had
not been wreckers of rates; before this the

retain her traffic, and it is important noth

tSPKCTAL, TXLIORAX TO TBX SISrATCS.l
"Washington, July 6. It now looks as
though the disgust of Assistant Secretary
Bacheller, of the Treasury Department,
which was referred to in these telegrams
some time ago, will result in his resignation
next week, thus gaining for New York, the
pivotal State in politics, the distinc
tion of making the first break in
the administration. Mr. Bacheller, in
his official capacity, has charge of
the appointments. He is the political end of
the Treasury Department He is not supposed
to know anything about finance or to want
to know anything about it. The office was
originally constituted to have oversight of
the working force of the department, and
make a keen analysis of the personnel of the
appointees. In more recent years it
has borne the brunt of the charges
made for political reasons,and since it seems
that an administration is not certain of more
than a four years' lease of life it becomes
important that the incumbent should be
alert and courageous, kick out offensive par
tisans as rapidly as convenient, and relieve
both Secretary and President as far as possi
ble from the criticisms that attach to re
movals. HIS WINGS WERE CLIPPED.
Mr. Bacheller started in with all the en
thusiasm of one who thoroughly believed in
kicking the rascals out, and he made prog
ress which delighted himself and his su
periors. As a political bouncer he was
voted an immense success, and each act met
with a hearty encore. But when criticism
began to pile upon criticism Irom the Mug
wump press the President and Secretary
"Windom hinted that it would not do to go
too fast The administration must appear
to keep in line with the declarations of the
Republican platform. To cnt this story
short, Mr. Bocheller's wings were clipped,
and as a political bouncer he could soar no
more, but only flop about like a hen in a
barrel. Mr. Bacheller protested, but his
protest fell on deaf ears. He went home to
New York and counseled with Republican
leaders who emphasized his protest, but
without effect To make matters worse, to
put on the last straw, as it were, Senator
Hiscock began to usurp bis prerogative even
in the little fenced-in field tbat was left for
him. He found that appointments were be
ing made even in New York without his
knowledge or consent Sometimes they
were made by one person and at other times
by another; but Bacheller always found
that Hiscock, "the prize ox of Syracuse," as
he is called, was the instigator of the crime
against, his official right Mr. Bacheller
complained to Secretary "Windom, but that
gentleman professed ignorance and declared
Bacheller was left, wrecked, and stranded
at the mercy of Hiscock. The offensive in
terference of the Senator has been more ag
gravating than usual during tbe last few
days, and to-day the Assistant Secretary
could endure the humiliation of his posi
tion no longer. To his friends he declared
his unalterable resolution to offer his resig
nation next week. It is just possible that
the President, when he discovers the
gravity of the situation, may inter
fere and smooth out the ruffled surface
of affairs. But Hiscock is not one who
compromises easily, and as he has started
forth with the intention of forcing Bachel
ler out of office, he will doubtless win his
Mr. B. is very strong politically in New,
York, lie is said to have been one of tbe
gifts of the administration to the faction

"Washington, July. 6. The report of
.Colonel Hughes, Inspector General, in re

Engineer Corps, has been received at the
,War Department. Lieutenant Carter has
charge of the ri'er and harborimprovements
in Georgia and Florida and was charged by
"W. B. Curtis,'a former employe, with brib
ery and corrupt practices in connection
with those vrorks. The charges were investi
gated by Colonel Hughes, and his report
completely) exonerates the officer and de
scribes, the charges as "a traitorous and
dastardly attack upon an Innocent man."
Colonel Hughes says that Inasmuch as

Young Girls Examined The Proceedings
An examination of 12 girlswas made by
Agent Dean of the Anti-Crjielty Society last
night at Alderman Hartman's office
concerning what they knew of the Dora

girls examined are Mary Socker, Minnie
Caylor, Katie Bchlie, Tinnie "Wentel,

and Dora Thompson. Mrs. Barbara Step

All of the girls were talked to.but refused
to make public any part of the examination.
Mrs. Steplein said she w6uld have nothing
further to do with the case, but declined to
give any reason for her decision. As to
Aldermen Hartman, he also refused to talk
on the matter. Although he
claimed the case was now out
of his hands and in those
of the Anti-Cruelty Society he advised all
the girls.in the presence of a Dispatch re
porter.not to talk to him. He positively re
fused to answer any question the reporter
Another person who was present at the
hearing also refused to talk on the subject,
saying tt would be a breach of confidence on
his part should be do so. "When asked if

Agent Dean was questioned and at first
refused to answer any questions asked, but
"The girls were the most careful lot that

would talk at random, but would not an

formation we gained from them does not
amount to much."
"Was there no important evidence
brought out?" was asked.
"Nothing that would even give us a small
clew. I tell you they were most exceed
ingly guarded in what they said. It was
surprising for girls of their age."
He was asked whether any warrants had
been issued or any new clews obtained. The
former question was not answered, but in
reply to the latter, he said:
"We have no new clews, but of course
we have no intention of giving the case up.
On the other hand, it will be probed to the
bottom. The girl shall and must be found.

given could do so. He further said
that it was strange 'Squire Hartman would

0APT. DAWSON'S BOMANCE.
He Was Francis Warrington Reeks a'nd
Ban Avray From England to be a
Confederate Glory In Ills
, . New Name.
rsrXCTAI, TXLZORAX TO THE DISPATCH.
New Yokk, July 6. The Dispatch
to-day referred to a statement made by one
who was ina position to know, that the real
name of CaptaiiTDawson, who was shot in
Charleston, was Beeks, and that Captain
Dawson was in fact an own brother of
the Eev. Father Beeks, who is
a priest in St George's Cathedral,
London, and who has been recently spoken
of as a relative of Dr. Cronin. A gentle
man in this city, who was a very warm per
sonal friend ofljCaptain Dawson and who
for a long time maintained intimate busi
ness relations with him, made this state
ment to a Dispatch reporter to-day.
"It is true that Captain Dawson's 'real
name was Beeks. His fnll name was
Francis Warrington Beeks, and he went by
the name of Francis "Warrington Dawson.
This change ot name was not dne to any
circumstances discreditable to Captain
Dawson. At the outbreak of the war here
Captain Dawson was a boy in England.
His sympathies became 'strongly enlisted
with the Confederates and he ran away from
home hiding as a stowaway bn a ship to join
the Confederate army.
"Realizing that his life would be one of
adventure, and not wishing to have any
rumpus over a violation of the neutrality
laws by an Englishman, he assumed his
mother's maiden name of Dawson. Under
this name he served throughout the war and
was gazetted and promoted. At the close
of the war he was very proud of his record
and wished to retain the name associated
with it. He consulted several eminent
lawyers, who told him that as he had
no blood relatives in this country, there was
ne reason why he should not continue to be
known by the name he had assumed. He
resolved, therefore, to keep the name of
Dawson. Captain Dawson never made any
secret ot the' fact that Beeks was his right
name. His brother, the Rev. Father
Beeks, visited him in Charleston, and Cap
tain Dawson introduced the priest every
where under the name of Beeks as his
"The story that Dr. Cronin was a brother
of Captain Dawson and Father Beeks is a
wild yarn. Dawson never knew anything
about Cronin. He was a warm sympa
thizer, though, with the cause of the Irish

CLOTHING DEFTLY STOLEN.
The Sritematlc Robbery of a Weil-Known
Concern Detected Tbe Alleged Thief
Arrested and Good Recovered.
An evident case of systematic theft, that
surprised all those most directly interested
and familiarly acquainted with the prin
cipal, was yesterday unearthed in con
nection with the clothing house of Kaufmann
Bros. Isador Fox, a salesman who for the
past six months had been employed and
very well liked In the children's clothing
department cf that store, and who, until a
year ago had been a trusted employe of.the
house for two years, was arrested, taken
before Magistrate McKenna and locked up
or a hearirg, on information lodged by
Morris Baer, of the Kaufmann establish
From the information and an interview
with Mr. Baer, the following allegations
against Mr. Fox were" learned: Not only
was the latter a man who would be the last
one suspected of theft; but the firm had long
employed a checking system whereby it was
deemed impossible for any clerk to take
goods from the establishment without the
surveillance and "O. K." of a man specially
designated for that purpose. Indeed, it
was possible for Mr. Fox, or any otber
salesman, to systematically purloin $350
worth of children's clothing from the store
in only one way, and that was to conceal
the goods in small parcels under his own
It all came out in this way, however: Mr.
Fox, on Friday, went to dinner as usual.
But he did not come back or send any ex
cuse for absence. He did go to his land
lady though, and advance a pretext about
loaning his trunks to a friend, whereby he
was enabled to remove them and their con
tents. He took them to the Seventh Ave
nue Hotel, where he registered as "L Fleck,
New York," and engaged room 360, in
which his baggage was placed. His next
move, as alleged, was to call on
a "Wylie ovenue clothier and in
troduce himself as Mr. Fleck, rep
resenting "Shire & Simon,NewYork,"a fic
titious clothing firm, for whom he wished
to dispose, at a great sacrifice, of a small lot
of new sample goods in children's clothing.
The Wylie avenue clothier, being induced
to visit tbe hotel and look at the goods, was
offered, the $350 lot for 590. He agreed, and
proceeded to make out' his check, but in
favor of the firm rather than "Fleck." The
latter sought and obtained identification
among his friends; "queering" his name so
that "Fleck" might sound very like "Fox."
Then, before the check was made out, the
still suspicious purchaser talked the matter
over with friends, sold four of the suits at a
nice profit, and had about finished the trans
action with regard to the other 35 suits,
when the talk he had indulged in led to the
arrest of Fox and the recovery by the right
ful owners of all the clothing. It was a
well-worked scheme, for a man who had
always been looked upon as innocence
itself, and whose demeanor at the store was

New Yoek, July 6. A suit for divorce,
of which no public mention has heretofore

A Cnt by the Pennsylvania to Meet the
Baltimore and Ohio.
Chicago, July 6. The Pennsylvania
road has "seen the Baltimore and Ohio and
gone it one better." Yesterday It met the
7-cent reduction to Baltimore and that of 18
cents to Philadelphia, and in addition made
a 12J4-cent rate to Pittsburg and Allegheny.
This morning, at the meeting of the Chicago
Committee ot the Central Traffic Association,
the Pennsylvania gave further notice that
all the above rates would go into effect
July 10, that the New York basis of 25
cents would be cut to 20 cents, and that it
would take shipments from St Louis as
well as Chicago at these rates.
These rates apply only on wheat and corn,
but the belief is prevalent among the mem
bers of the committee that the break will
extend to all grain and flour. Especially is
this so because the Pennsylvania has not
only been so quick to meet, but likewise to
extend the break.

Beklik, July 6. Prince Bismarck's let
ters to the German Minister at Berne, pub-,
lished in the Seichsanze'jer on Thursday,
have been the prelude to a general outcry
by the semi-official press, menacing the
neutrality of Switzerland.
The Chancellor's intention in publishing; ;
the letters which was at first supposed to be
merely for the purpose of justifylnghis atti
tude toward Switzerland, has now invested
with a serious meaning the letter in which
hfc says that if Switzerland continues to per
mit revolutionists to threaten the internal
peace and security of the German Empire)"1 -v
the powers will be asked to consider Swiss
This is not an idle menace. An exchange
of communications has resulted in an identi
cal policy being adopted by the Austrian
and Italian Governments to compel Switzer
land to comply with 4he demands of Bis
marck for a revision of the laws affecting
refugees. The appointment of a Aew Pro
curer General at Berne indicates a desire on
the part of the Bundesrath to amend'ihe
laws in the direction of Prince Bismarck's
A VICTOEY FOB BISMAECIC
The Chancellor is thus likely to accom
plish his immediate object Beyond that
the dispatches lay a basis for 'future action.
Some of the semi-official papers discover
that the existence of Switzerland is
anomalous, even if the Anarchists, whom
Bismarck declares are unhindered in their
work of disturbing Germany, were stamped
For instance, an article appears in the
Bambqer Nachrichten serenely proving that
Switzerland has no raison d'etre. It de
clares that in the event of certain European
changes the German cantons ought to ba
absorbed by (iermany and tne Italian can
tons by Italy.
The ideas concerning the matter are
meantime academic, but withal pregnant
with danger. To-night's advices from Berne
show tbat the Government is alive to the
possibilities of the situation. The Bundes
rath has concluded to negotiate a loan of
20,000,000 marks to provide rifles for the
BEADY FOB TBOUBLE.
A syndicate of bankers, headed by the
National Bank of Switzerland, will float
the loan. Apart from official circles, Ger ,
man feeling leans toward Switzerland and
is hopeful that nothinzwill disturb existing,
sympathies. The- Cologne Gazette states
that4he Emperor, during his last journey
in Southern Germany, several times ex
pressed his respect and admiration for the
Swiss, regret that the quarrel arose and his
conviction that the difference would be ar
ranged. The conference of Catholic bishops at.
Fulda, fixed for August 6, precedes the Cen-'
tenst electoral congresses at Munich, Co
logne and other places. The bishops will
reconsider the general policy of the party
toward the Government on the eve of the.
'elections. The relations between the Cen
terists and tbe Government have been dis
turbed by Prince Bismarck's interference!
with Episcopal appointments, for instance, .
the rejection of the candidate tor the See or,
Munster proposed by the Chapter. . '
Catholics are convinced that Prince Bis-
marck, having selected a diplomatic"
bishop, is trying to induce tne Vatican to
ignore the Chapter's right to elect one.
The congress at Munich is mainly in
tended to organize the South. The leaders
of the Center party are alive to the fact
that while the Catholics have a numerical
majority, in a number of districts the mfc..,
nority holds the representation.
