The Shalt of Persia, although engaged in
a very expensive tour, is apparently not en
joying himself as well as he might. He
goes to sleep at the most unexpected times,
and none of England's lair daughters seem
to have any fascinations for him. The
Briton matron has another cause for com
plaint, an attempt having been made by
Sir William Moore to close the Indian mat
rimonial market against English maidens.

Lojtdox, July 13. Copyright. The
Shah's stay in London appears to have
made that worthy potentate very tired,
in the proper and not the slangy meaning of
the word. Since he started out in the coun
try he has been two hours late, on an aver
age, for every apppomtment, and has shown
an unusual fondness for going to sleep at
unexpected moments, when his people dare
cot wake him.
The fact that His Majesty takes about
with him a very pleasing young woman in
boy's costume is being commented upon and
has riled the British matron considerably.
As a matter of fact, the British matron
ought to be rather grateful to His Majesty
for having brought only one yonng person
from his harem, instead of half dozen, which
would have been very moderate, according
to his point of view, and for keeping this
young woman so much in the background
as he does.
A Beautiful Circassian Girl.
The Shah's temporary favorite, who is
very rarely seeD, is a remarkably good
looking young girl of Circassian birth, not
in the least resembling the ordinary Circas
sian girl of commerce, as exhibited in
American dime museums. She Jias short
hair, ery fine eyes, and, in fact, the class
ical combination which goes to make up
Someb&ly, since the Shah's arrival, has
been amusing himself by calculating His
Majesty's expenses on this trip. Although
nearly everything is paTd for by the various
Governments, towns, Lord Mayors and pri-
ate individuals with whom His Shahship
comes in contact, it seems that
Ills Own Expense Account
will easily go up beyond 51,500,000 before
he gets home, on account of the presents
which he gives and the size of his suite,
which numbers over GO, and probably uses
up a great deal of pocket money.
"We are going to ha e another royalty
here, but one who will not' create so much
interest as the dusky gentleman from Persia
namely, Kins Milan. That man who di
vorced himself so handily is coming here
on a house-hunting expedition. As soon as
he has finished with the Paris Exhibi
tion he means to take up his residence per
manently in Scotland or in England, and
will travel under the name of Count Takovo.
Another Benson for Grumbling.
The unmarried British female has a fresh
cause of complaint. It is not enough to
have her natural future Englishman marry
an American, but now an Englishman, Sir
"William Moore, is trying to close against
her the Indian matrimonial market,
which was fast becoming her only hope. Sir
"William, who is a Surgeon General, recom
mends Anglo-Indians to stop niarrying
English girls and get along with native
wive. These, he declares, are just as good
cs the Anglo-Saxon female, pretty and
hardy, with plenty of strength, and bear
children. They can live in the Indian cli-J
mate, and do not necessitate the frequent
trips to Europe which characterize the En
glish girl married in India.
Sir "William, by his article in the Asiatic
Qaartrrlif Keucio, has made himself almost
as much disliked as the average American
mother, who on this tide is credited with
devoting her life solely to making spinsters
of English girls.

London, Julv 13. The coming wedding
of thai fortunate joung woman, 1'rincess
Louise, granddaughter of the Queen, con
tinues to concentrate upon itself a large
amount of interest. Ordinary people are
grumbling violently because they have got
to pay the bills, which will be very consid
erable; aud the idle class, called the upper,
are in a great state of palpitation about
being invited to show the wondering whether
they may be presumed to send presents,
what sort of coronets to have engraved on
the presents, if they do send them, etc.
The Shah of Persia has already in Bond
street a very stunning present to give to the
young woman whose father and mother
have been so polite to him. N. M. Roths
child & Sons have gone in for a diainond-and-ruby
necklace, worth 520,000, which
they arc going to give, but the Shah's gilt
will probably outshine every other.
Makes the Prince of Wales Mad.
The Prince of "Wales is full of unfeigned
indignation, rather amusingly in fact, at
the hesitancy of the English people to pro
vide liberally for his daughter, and also for
his eldest son, and considers it an outrage
that there should be any question at all.
He will probably be still more shocked
when he learns what Cunninghame Graham
is meditating in the way of a blow to his
feelings. This very sound Radical, when
the question of royal grants comes up in thefc
House, intends to propose that whatever is
granted shall be for the life of the Queen
only, and' that afterward England and the
territory belonging to her shall be run
economically as a republic.
The Earl of Fife, who is to be honored by
marrying the young royal person, appears
to be rather a good sort of individual. He
treats his tenants liberally, having reduced
their rents, and then, in kind terms,
Itefuscs to Accept n Present
from them while in an actual state of agri
cultural depression. He doesn't appear at
all overcome by the big match that he has
made, but considers himself quite equal to
the German family who happens to have a
throne, and, in short, has behaved pretty
decently all around.
The chapel in which tho wedding is to
tate place was formerly a conservatory,
having been changed, not very long ago,
into its present state. It will hold very few
people beyond the crowd of religious and
royal dignitaries who must be there, and
there are going to be a great many wounded
feelings when the time comes for the dis
tribution of the tickets.
The Empress Frederick is coming without
fail, and so is the Kingof Denmark and the
King of Greece. The Queen will come
from Osborne, although she is still suffering
severely from rheumatism and lumbago,
which compels her to walk about with a
stick, and be very good natured.
The only unpleasant thing about the
Queen's future grandson-in-law is the fact
that his father died of drink, but there is
not anything to show that he has inherited
his father's failing as yet.

tBV CABLE TO THE DISPATCH
London, July 13. Robert Browning is
not a great success when 1 e tries to be
furious in verse, as bis most ardent admirers
will admit on reading the attempt that
follows. Aldis "Wright has published an
edition of the life and letters of Edward
Fitzgerald, and Browning, looking through
it, found a passage which may be twisted so
as to express thankfulness'to God for Mrs.
Browning's death, so there would be no
more "Aurora Leighs" written. Browning
has thought to vindicate her memory by
perpetrating these verses, which appear in
this week's At henautn.

"What Fitzgerald really wrote was not as
bad as Browning would make it, and is cal
culated to irritate the strong-minded female

England With Another of Her Periodical
Little Wars en lland.
IBT CABLE TO THE DISrATCH.l
London, July 13. England has spent
the latter part of the week waking up to the
fact that she has got another one of her
little wars with savages on her hands. The
wretched dervishes, dying from hunger and
thirst, with British bayonets forcing them
back from the Kile waters, have continued
to push on northward through the desert
sands with marvelous pluck, have out
stripped the Egyptian forces, reached the
coveted Nile, and having drunk their fill of
water, are, as may be imagined, in a fine
state of thirst for blood, and are getting as
much of it as they conveniently can.
The English, instead of getting out of
Egypt or thrashing their enemies there once
and for all, are adopting their usual tactics
of sending out a few regiments to put down
the disturbance temporarily, fighting the
Khedive's battles on a small scale, only to
begin all over again next year. The amazing
thing in this little fight, and which alone
makes it worth talking about, is the marvel
ous pluck of the undisciplined Arab fighters,
who have gone through sufferings such as no
English troops could be found to cudure.
The organization, on so small a scale, of
English killing projects, is not due to tmy
sentimentality. On the contrary, there it a
cordial desire in the "War Office to have the
greatest posstble nnmber of Arabs die of
thirst and hunger, and, while waiting for
troops to arrive, notice has been sent that
whoever gives way, either to the enemy, or
helps him in any way, will be killed as soon
as the English can reach and convict him. '

London, July 13. Boulanger and his
friends, very much unheard of recently, are
celebrating to-night at Alexandria Palace.
Any one can go for 5 shillings and a penny,
including railway fare, dinners and fire
works. A fortunate thing for the lig ht
weighfr pretender is the disgrace which
threatens Monsieur Constans, the latest
victim of the systematic hunting-down of
French Cabinet Ministers that has been go
ing on of late.
Constans, who is one of Boulanger's bit
tercst enemies, is a very clever man, but his
rcputa tion of being the most unscrupulous
statesman in Europe seems to be deserved.
He had been for some vears Governor Gen
eral of Tonkin, whence he returned richer
than he went. His successor, M. Richaut,
being charged by the Government with
making investigations as to Constans con
duct, died under very mysterious circum
stances on his return journey, and with him
disappeared the report he had made about
Constans' behavior. The document has just
cropved up and contains unpleasant evi
dence against the Minister. .It appears that
not only did his way of life throw real
discredit on France, but that he sold his in
fluence in a shameless way, among other
things allowing a king named Norodom to
create illicit gambling resorts in exchange
lor a wonderful belt valued at 1,000,000
This and many other things of a scanda
lous character bing alleged against Con
stans in the official report, may possibly
lead to a change of ministry.

fBT CABLE TO THE DISrATCH.l
London, July 13. Mr. "William Shrinip-t
ton, who is just now figuring as a criminal
out on leave and breaking regulations, has
attracted attention by his prowess in taming
the city mouse. This, it seems, has not been
done before, though country mice have often
been tamed. Shrimpton caught a mouse in
prison, and concluded to tame it, for which
end he cut off its tail, close to the root. This
'process, in Mr. Shrimpton's own words, is
an infallible remedy. The mouse, having
no hope of ever again being persona grata
in the mouse world, is obliged to take up
with whoever should cut her tail off, and
get along the best she can.
The tail so impressed the magistrate at
Bow street, that he promised he would get
the authorities to allow Shrimpton to take
his mouse, thus violently tamed, into any
prison he might happen to be sent to.

Bracevilxe, III., July 13. The first
blood incident to the present strike was

meeting of striking miners was held in
Braidwood last night, in which it was re
solved that all present should go to Godley
at Daylight and induce the miners there to
refrain from going to work peaceably if
they could, forcibly if they must, A Bo

authorities at Godley shaft, where Sheriff

Pinkerton men, were on dutv.
At G o'clock this morning the intimidators
were on hand, expostulating with the work
iugmen and frightening some of them so
that they returned to their homes. An
Italian named Albert Poiney, in broken
English said that they had clubs, and that
he wouldn't attempt to work for any money.
Deputy Sheriff Graves met two of the gangs
and asked them to disperse, which they
finally did for the time being. There were
three different crowds, one from Braceville,
one from Braidwood, and one from Eureka,
making altogether about 200 men. The
latter crowd -advanced on the road
dividing Will and Grundy counties.
When opposite the shaft the Sheriff
warned them repeatedly that they could
trespass no further. They answered him
with insulting taunts and jeers, and when
the Sheriff flourished a bugev whip they
snatched it from him. He pulled bis revol
ver and fired twice, as he supposed in the
air, and then ordered his squad of 14 men,
including two police, to charge and use the
butt of their pistols as clubs. They did so,
inflicting many heavy blows, under which

Philadelphia, July 13. After having
tried unsuccessfully for two years to get
permission from the city authorities
to extend its lines into tLe
heart of the city by means of
elevated tracks, the Reading Railroad
Company has determined that it has all the
authority under the branching powers
granted by its charter ard legislative sup

out leave of the city authorities. A
big legal battle is in pros
pect The company pursued its
work of tearing down the buildings on the
line of the proposed elevated road, notwith
standing an announcement from Mayor
Fitler that any attempt on the part of the
company to cross the streets would be re
sisted. The Mayor is in communication with the
City Solicitor as to the Reading's right to
cross the streets without the permission of
the city authorities, and he has given
the company to understand that it
shall not cross a single street without
the consent of the courts, to which the mat
ter will.be taken upon the company's first
encroa'chment upon the city's domain." The
Reading officials received the Mayor's an
nouncement with complacency. One of their
counsel said that the determination of the
matter in the courts was just what the com

spirit, it would open the issue as soon as
The aggressive attitude of the company

Harry Mahler, a prominent and wealthy
merchant of San Pedro, jumped overboard

was bombarded bf the English in 1873, and
many of the shells thrown never exploded.
It was one of these with which a number

Governor Beaver has made an estimate of
the amount of money expended for the
relief of the flood sufferers. His calculation
shows that an aggregate of 2,500,000 has
been applied to this purpose. His cash fund
reached nearly 51,100,000, of which over
5700,000 has been used. A large contribu
tion has been received from Germany, and
other points are still being heard from. The
work of cleaning up Johnstown is now mak
ing rapid progress.
rSPECIAL TSLEQBAM TO THE DISPATCH. I
Habbisbubo, July 13. Governor
Beaver to-day made an estimate of the
amount expended for the relief of the suffer
ers by the bursting of the South Fork dam,
and the amount directed to be distributed
on account of the disaster. The Relief
Commission a few days ago issued a circu
lar showing that about 52,200,000 had been
applied for the relief of the sufferers and
the abatement ot nuisances, -but the Gov
ernor's calculation shows that the amount
appropriated for the indicated purposes
aggregates about $2,500,000.
There has been received by the Governor
through various sources nearly fl,100,000.
Of this amount, about 5680,000 has been
used in the Conemaugh Valley, and be
tween 550,000 and 500.000 in other portions
of the State which sustained losses by the
flood, leaving in the hands of the Governor
about 5350,000 for distribution. This fund
is used exclusively in providing food, shel
ter and clothing for the sufferers and in sup
plying them with money to give them a
new start in lire. In addition, the Gov
ernor has expended 5225,000 in abating
nuisances in Johnstown and vicinity.
A SEPARATE FUND.
The fund applied to the latter purpose
does not come from any of the contributions,
but has been loaned for the purpose for put
tins the various flood-visited localities in a
good sanitary condition. It was estimated
at first that $1,000,000 would be required to
accomplish this result, but not much more
than one-third of this amount will be needed
to meet the liabilities incurred by this par
ticular demand on the State.
Out of the Governor's fund, made up from
all the States in the Union, with the fund
loaned to him to abate nuisances
caused by the flood, there have
been expended in the Conemaugh valley
5905,000. In addition the following
amounts have been expended: ByPittdbunr.
5250,000; by Philadelphia, 5200,000; Johns
town iund distributed by the local comm:
tee, 5250,000; contracts lor the construction
of houses, 5150,000; transportation expenses,
$100,000; military expenses, 531,000; Chlcago
houses, 514,000; value of food, clothing and
other articles contributed not included-in
above indicated expenses, 5600,0001; total,
Adding the foregoing ambulit to the
5905,000 received and expended by the Gov
ernor for the relief of floodsufferers and the
abatement of nuisancesthe entire amount
expended and directed Ao be expended in
Johnstown and viciniiy reaches 52,500,000.
STILL QSfrlEB AID.
This sum docs not include contributions
by various secret societies and through other
agencies not credited to cities or towns
that have made contributions for relief of
sufferers. The Odd Fellows a few days ago
distributed about Slfi.OOO to members of the
order who sustained losses by the Johns
town disaster, and two New "York papers
eaehgave 510,000, which amounts are not
inclnded in the Go1 xrnor's estimate.
The Governor hajS kept a record of all the
moneys he has rcdeived, with the names ot
the towns, institutions or individuals donat
ing them, and thd Secretary of the Belief
Commission is havfing a statement prepared
to show the amounfts contributed by each of
the States to tht relief of the sufferers,
which will be published at the proper time.
The contributions vre continuing to flow
into the hands of theGovernor. Yesterday
he received 511.000, oSf which 58,000 came
from Germany. To-day between 52,000 and
53,000 were added to the Governor's fund.

iBrECIAL TELEORAK TO THE DISrATCH.l
Johnstown, July 13. The Presbyterian
Church, with a seating capacity of 1,200,
was filled this afternoon with a thoroughly
representative body of citizens, and Burgess
Horrell was called to the chair, and in a
brie speech outlined the object of the
meeting. He said that the people of this
valley should themselves have the disburse
ment of the contributions intended for them,
as the State Commission had shown their
incapacity for the work. A committee on
resolutions was appointed, who presented
the following report:
That the citizens ot Johnstown and vicinity
respectfully, yet earnestly, request that the
fund contributed, for the relief of the sufferers
by the disastrous flood, which devastated the
Conemaugh valley, be as speedily as possible
distributed in money directly to people
to whose benefit it was donated, and that all
purchases, contracts, and all expenses to be
paid out of this fnnd immediately cease.
That any hoarding up of this fund to meet
problematical future wants, will materially
diminish its usefulness and only result in de
laying to a more distant time the
BESTOBATION OF HOMES,
of business, of 'industry and of confidence. It
will do more good in the hands of the people
now than at any time hereafter.
That we repudiate as insulting to the man
hood and intelligence of our citizens, now that
the avenues of trade are opened up, the impu
tation that they cannot and will not wisely and
economically disburse any funds placed in
their hands, and because of this imputation,
the arrogant assumption that guardians must
supervise our expenditures, control our dis
bursements, purchase oar supplies and make
Resolved, That if the statements imputed to
Qis Excellency, Governor Beaver, that "a mil
lion and a half dollars has already been ex
pended in Johnstown and; vicinity," has any
foundation in fact, it is the strongest
possible argument that I expending relief
funds in contracting fori buildings, .quar
termaster and commissary supplies, is not
a wise, judicious or economical way of dis
bursing such funds, when tha ordinary sources
of supply are opened up. lOnly by gross ex
travagance and carelessness ilould such a sum
have been used here, and tub people have re
ceived no adequate return f oritho expenditure
pf so large an amount.
Resolved. That the di'Dnrserient of the fund
subscribed for relief directly q the sufferers
by the flood will
will provide work for our builders and trado
for our merchants, will provide libor for our
artisans and will tend to restore Confidence In
the community, and will thus dilectly and in
directly help those for whom the fiund was in-
tended. While any other course at this day
savors oi 30 us, reocunas to tne Denent 01 non
resident contractors and business men having
no interest in this community, ana unjustly
discriminates against our own citizens.
Resolved, That it is unfair and -unjust to
exact an oath as to private income and relief
before the bounteous charity of our country
men can be distributed to its beneficiaries.
Resolved, That we hereby appeal to the cus
todians ot funds at Philade' piiia. New York,

The Work of Cleaning Up the Town Is Pro
Jpwjtstown, July 13. An examination
'of the work done on the streets shows that
great progress has been made during the

everything systematized and the contractors
are pushing the work with vigor. One body,
that of an unknown woman, was found in a

their homes to-day.
Judge Cummin spent the greater part of
the day in the town, and had a conference
with the Finance Committee. The ?10-a-head

Peteksbtjbo, VA.,.July 13. A wiud
storm which assumed almost the proportions
of a cyclone passed over Dlnwiddic county,
in the vicinity of DarviUs district, this
afternoon, which did an immense amount of
damage. Trees were uprooted and barns
and fences leveled .to the ground. The
storm was accompanied by a heavy fall of
rain and hail, and the crops suffered terri

pieces oats, 'wheat, corn and vegetation.
The storm was also very severe in Sussex
county, in the neighborhood of "Waverly

Sullivan and Kilraln have evidently no
intention of falling into the hands of Gov
ernor Lowry if they can help it. Every
effort is being made to conceal their present
whereabouts. The champion is believed
to still be in Chicago. There is trouble
ahead for the railroad which assisted so
largely in the fight.
rSFECIAL TELIORAH TO TIES DISPATCTI.1
Chicago, July 13. It is general talk
among the sports that John L. Sullivan has
left for Canada. The bartender employed
by Tom Curley, in whose saloon Sullivan
hid last night, tells a different story, how
ever. He says that the big .slugger arose
early this morning, and went with Curley
to Eddie Marsh's place in South Chicago.
It is his intention to remain there for a day
or so and then catch the Baltimore and
Ohio train for Washington, where he is to
meet a number of sports who are on the
Committee of Celebration and Reception.
One or the Chicago sports, who was close
at the ringside during the big fight, tells of
some conversation carried on between Sulli
van and Kilrain. The latter, he says, asked
Sullivan twice to make the fight a' draw.
The champion replied each time that he was
not fighting Kilrain, but that he was
fighting Fox and intended to lick
him well. Parson Davies, who came
up part way on Kilrain's train,
says .that the defeated fighter was badly
frightened all the way up. The rest of the
party devised a scheme by which to divert
the attention of the policemen who peered
into the car windows at every station.
Jimmy Connelly was patched up with court
plasters and had his face smeared with
blood. Two of the party sat over him with
fans and whisky bottles, while Kilrain rode
in the other'end of the car without attract
ing any notice.
Kilrain's hiding place is almost a mys
tery. The following "was received from Co
lumbus, Ind.: A person who arrived in
this city to-day from Blue River, 20 miles
northeast of here, reports that Jake Kil
rain, Charley Mitchell, Pony Moore and
Johnnv Murphy are still sojourning in that
locality. Mitchell and Kilrain spent sev
eral weeks in that neighborhood two years
ago, and have many friends there who are
taking good care of the defeated pugilist.
The baggage of Kilrain was to-day for
warded by express from this city to Balti
more. A sometvhat different story is told in this
telegram from Indianapolis. Kilrain's
whereabouts is not known definitely, but it
is likely he is near Detroit. He and his
party spent Friday on the farm of Henry
Torlorne, on the line of the Big Four Rail
road, about 20 miles east of this city. Late
last night Kilrain, Moore and Murphy re
sumed their journey in a carriage. This
forenoon they passed Irvington, four miles
east of Indianapolis, headed for Bright
wood, where they are presumed to have
boarded a train for Detroit. Mitchell has
left the party and started for Baltimore.

tETECIAL TELEOBAM TO IDE DISPATCH. 3
New YonK, July 13. A crowd of men
and boys hung about the Vanderbilt Hotel
until nearly 12 o'clock to-night, patiently
awaiting the expected arrival of Champion
John L. Sullivan. The first rumor was that
he would arrive at 6 o'clock, and when this
hour passed without his appearance the time
was set for every hour up to 11 o'clock,
when the discouraging statement was made
that he might not come until to-morrow,
and maybe not then. Proprietor Clune was
ready with a band to play, "See tha Con
quering Hero Comes," a lot of fire works
and big repast.
All sorts of conflicting statements regard
ing the whereabouts ot the great fighter
were made, but none of them were credited
until nearly midnight, when Billy Muldoon,
in answer to a number ot passing questions
from the reporters, said: "Sullivan will
not arrive in town to-uight, and
will not come here until he is
sent for. He will not be sent for until it is
certain that there is no fear of his being ar
rested. He is within 12 hours of New Yo'rk
and is located in a perfectly safe place.
This pursuit of him has developed into a
case of 'bleed.' What money John has he
worked mighty hard for, and he will not
squander it or give it away if his
friends can help it. It cost him $1,000 to
get out of Nashville. He will not come to
this city unless he can come In a perfectly
open and free manner. When he does come
all the newspaper men will be permitted to
see him. "Will he be in town to-morrow?
Not unless I send for him, which is hardly
likely. I am as much in danger of arrest as
Sullivan, although I am not well known,
and the penalty in my case is not so severe,"
Restaurant Keeper Stroub, half-brother to
Pony Moore, the father-in-law of Charley
Mitchell, said that he had no word from the
Kilrain people since the fight, and that he
hadn't the slightest idea where the de
feated fighter was.

and a big affair it will prove to be. Sheriff
Cowart, who' witnessed the fight, and Mr.

New Orleans and elsewhere. The Governor
does not doubt that he will eventually get
the principals, Sullivan and Kilrain, to
gether witn the gan?s, or some of them.
The Queen and Crescent is beginning to
show fight, but the Governor says they will
rue the day when they took legal advisers
and were parties to the late slugging match
in Mississippi. Governor Lowry is an old
lawyer, has also served in both branches of
the Legislature, and very probably his
opinion is deserving of more credit than the
Queen and Crescent officers are disposed to
grant. Other eminent lawyers agree with
him that forfeiture of tho charter cannot be

A QUAY CONFEBENCE
At Which tho Silent Senntor Was Mainly
Conspicuous by His Abscnre He Is
No: Feeling Well There May
be a Meeting To. Day.
rSrXCIAL TELEOBAM TO THE DISPATCIM
Atlantic Citv, N. J., July 13. A
delegation of Philadelphia politicians
waited for three hours on Senator Quay at
the United States Hotel, but adjourned the
confab in despair at a late hour when the
hotel clerk read to them a private message
from Quay stating that he would not leave
Brigantine Beach until Monday morning,
and asking that the party await his coming
in order that a conference may be held. A
visit to the beach at Brigantine revealed
the fact that the Senator is a little under
the weather, and not a rush of business but
an indisposed condition prevented his ap"
pearance at the conference this evening.
He has hinted to a friend that, if feeling
well, he will be in Atlantic City to hold a
secret session with the Philadelphia bosses
to-morrow morning. Senator Cooper, the
new Collector of the Port of Philadelphia,
David Martin, Philadelphia's Internal
Revenue Collector, Allen B. Rorke, Chair
man of the City Committee, Senator Boise
Penrose and ex-Legislator Charles Porter,
the largest public contractor of Philadel
phia, were among those who took part in
the consultation this evening. One of the
gentlemen in the delegation said to-night
that while the present conference is ostensi
bly for the purpose of settling the distribu
tion of patronage so far as Quay is con
cerned, the secret of the meeting is to de
vise means by which to execute the Sena
tor's scheme to close out Leeds aud deliver
the final death blow to McManes.
The fight for the Superintendence of the
Philadelphia Mint will also he discussed,
which will end with an arrangement to
have Fox appointed, leaving Bosby Shell
in the soup. The conferees will also make
a move iu the matter of the postmastership.
Wanamaker has sent word that he must
have this atipointment himself, that Harrity
must serve out his term aud that John
Fields shall be named as his successor on
the latter's return from Europe. General
Hastings will also be here Monday to confer
with Quay on the Gubernatorial fizht, in
which he expects te lead, although Quay is
now said to favor Reyburn's nomination"
ARCHIBALD'S MISSION A PUZZLE.
A Number of Shrewd Guesses nt It Dlade In
rSPECIAL TELEOBAX TO THE BEPVTCn.1
New Yobk, July 13. James P. Archi
bald, Master Workman of the Painters
and Paper Hangers' District Assembly, 210,
of the Knights of Labor, went to Europe
the other day, and since his departure there
has been much speculation about the purpose
of his visit. Archibald was born in Dublin
40 years ago, and has revisited his birth
place many times. When he put George in
nomination tor Mayor of this city he
was not tyet an American citizen. Con
sequently he did not vote for
George. It is surmised that since Master
Workman Powderly has announced
his intention of not attending the Inter
national Workingmen's Congress at Paris,
as a representative of the Knights of
Labor, Archibald has undertaken the job
on bis own hook, and will try to prevent
the Continental Anarchists and Socialists
from convicfingTowderly of having got the
Chicago Anarchists hanged.
Another guess as to Archibald's mission
is that he has been intrusted by certain free
traders with the job of securing the passage
of a resolution in the Paris Working
men's Congress approving of free trade.
Edward King.of the Type Founders' Union,
says that from advices he has had, the Paris
Congress of Workingmen, which should
open to-morrow, will be divided
into three bodies. The trades unionists
and the advanced Socialists will meet to
gether, and the Karl Marx and Edward
Aveling Socialists will flock to them
selves. The Anarchists will have noth
ing to do with the other two, except
to denounce Powderly and the Knights of
Labor. Some of the delegates who have
left this country have credentials to all
three "only original" w6rkingmen's con
gresses. A SYNDICATE OP BLACKGUARDS.

Peace spreads her wings o'er Homestead
The truce that stayed the battle royal holds
good. The Amalgamated Association's
conference with the Carnegie firm lasted Ion g
into the night. It was not finished. Tha
essentials of a scale were fully agreed upon,
however. The conference, looking toward
complete harmony and resumption, con
tinues to-morrow. With or without Car.
negie's cabled consent, it promises success.
How it all came about is an interesting
story. TnE Dispatch gives all the details.
There will be no further trouble at Home
stead. This statement can be made almost
positively, as the report of the conference
held yesterday and last night between tha
Amalgamated Association officials aud the
firm will indicate. The conference convened
in the office of Carnegie, Phipps & Co., on
Fifth avenue, at 2:30, and continued until
about 11 o'clock. Business was suspended
for a short time only, and that was when
the members of the conference were dis
posing of a magnificent lunch served in the
office by the Duquesne Club caterer.
At the close of the meeting it was de
cided to keep the proceedings quiet, and
every person present was pledged not to
give a word away for publication.
A stenographer was present and took down
every word that was said from the time tho
conference began until it closed. A com

of this paper; but this is the official an
nouncement of the stenographer's notes very
cleverly condensed by the members of the
firm and the members of the Amalgamated
Association who were present:
The result of the conference is that certain
essential points have been agreed to. Other
matters of importance remain for discussion.
The conference will continue next week.
This is considered a very significant
statement, and indicates that the firm is
anxious to settle the trouble. Although
they have issued what was termed an ulti
matum, it has been withdrawn. This action
has been caused by the serious outbreak be
fore thm, and they have evidently dis
covered that a fight with the powerful
Amalgamated Association means a fight in
every sense of the word, and that they can
not have as smooth sailing as they had with ,
the workmen at the Edgar Thomson mill.
The Crisis Was Reached
on Friday, and Sheriff McCandless realized
the fact that something had to be done and
that very quickly. The members of the
Carnegie firm also realized this fact and
agreed to make some concessions rather
than have murder and bloodshed, but did
not admit, and will not yet admit, that the
scale of wages they have offered to their
men, or any men who are willing to enter
their employ, is unfair.
In order to avoid serious trouble they
have consented to a further discussion on
the wage question, brought about by the
intercession ol Sheriff McCandless, who ex
plained the fearful results that might fol
low an adherence to the original proposition.
The proceedings were conducted very quiet
ly, but it was learned that,
Before Going Any Further,
the men whom Andrew Carnegie had Isft in
charge of the business affairs of the great
steel concern decided to consult with the
head of the firm. Mr. Carnegie is in Paris,
and several cablegrams werj forwarded to
him durine the day and night explaining
the situation and asking: for advice. No
reply came, when the conference adjourned
until some day this week. "Until a reply it
received from Mr. Carnegie nothing definite
will likely be done.
President Weihe, Secretary Martin,
Chairman Abbott, Mr, H. M. Curry and
others who attended the conference were
seen after adjournment, but all declined to
talk. They intimated that the truce would
be continued and that everything was satis
factory at present.

between labor and capital, TllE DISPATCH
feels at liberty to publish a part of the in

was likely to occur at the conference ar- '
