A South Carolina Leader Leaves
Washington in a Sad State of Mind.
The Policy of the Administration to Get
Eecruits From the Enemy.
lie Secretary of the XsvyJIa a Kew War to Get
a Few Smill War Ships.
A South Carolina delegate to the Chicago
Convention conies to the conclusion that the
administration intends to male as many
converts as possible, even at the expense or
antagonizing colored voters in the South.
The- Secretary of the Navy has a new plan
for assisting the navy.
"Washington, July 27. Henry Ken
nedy,.of Newberry, S. C, who was a dele
gate to the Chicag j Convention, and a strong
Harrison man, has been here several weeks
endeavoring to effect a settlement of the
Newberry posteffice cae. This is the place
to which Charles AVhitmire, colored, was ap
pointed In Hay last. The white patrons of
the office, it Is alleged, threatened to boycott
Wanam&ker's business house if a white man
was hot made postmaEter. Whitmire's com
mission was thereupon withhe'd, and has
not been reissued. Kennedy has gone home
disgusted with the administration. He says:
I am diuted at the way things are being
managed, and so are the majority of my people.
I am going to speak my mind when I get home,
and tell the folks that they need no loneer look
to tlie Republican party for their salvation.
We are only to be given the crumbs, except in
a few individual cases and white Democrats
wbo promi-e to become Republicans are to be
given tbe fat I laces. There is absolutely no
use In our lighting any lonqcr to keep up a Re
publican organization. Tbe colored people
are already looking on the pro
posed national election law unfavorably.
It will be a delusion and a snare for us. It
simply means tbat we are to be abandoned in
onr local struggles, as we have been since 1876.
bat we want is a recognition of our fall po
litical rigbt in State affairs, as well as national.
In fact, tbis Is worth infinitely more to us. If
tbe Republican party wants tbe colored voters
to continue to give it their support, it will bare
to be a great deal more liberal with us in its
policy than it bas been.
Tbe colored people are no longer frightened
by tbe bugaboo of tbe re-establisbnient of the
system of slavery, which kept tbem for a long
time ball scared'out of their wits. They Lnow
full well, even the most ignorant of tbem, that
their freedom is secured for all tbe time, and
now their only political concern is for their
rights of citizenship. If tbe Republican party
only means to secure such legislation as will
protect tbem in their support ot its own domina
tion, it will be better for tbem to be let alone.
1 here can be nothing more foolish than tbe
supposition that tbe colored people will vote
for Congressmen, and in other ways keep un
the animosity existing between them and the
Southern whites, when tbey will receive no en
couragement in their efforts to elect State
officers. Jam in favor of my people making
speedy terms with the white people of the
South, for in snch a course there lies the whole
solution of the race problem.
Vessels in tbe Revenue and Other Depart
ments a Splendid Basis If Properly
Built Congress Will Be
Asked to Act.
Washington, July 27. One of tbe
recommendations likely to be incorporated
An the report of Secretary Tracy to Con
gress this fall is that all the vessels built
or purchased by the Government be con
structed with a view to service in time of
war as smaller 'naval vessels. Said a promi
nent official oi the Navy Department,
speaking of this subject:
"If we are going to have a navy let us build
it up by all tbe means in our power and make
every vessel owned by the Government a part
of it, to be used for its primary purpose In time
of peace, but effective for offensive and de
lensive war. There are probably 100 revenue
cutters, light-bouse tenders and vessels ope
rated in the service of the Fish Commission.
Coast Survey, etc, which could be and should
be so constructed as to form a powerful arm
of tbe navy in time of need. As it is, tbey are
built without regard for tbe protection ot
their machinery or facilities for carrying
armament. Both of tbose could be
provided without materially increasing
the cost of tbe vessels. Other nations do not
spend their money for ships ot any kind that
cannot be converted into war-sblps in case of
necessity, and tbe United States should follow
their example. The lighthouse tenders, for
instance, with tbeir crews familiar with the
planting of buoys and handling ground tackle,
would prove invaluable as torpedo boats. Onr
Government vessel should be built on plans
prepared in the Navy Department and fur
nlsned, on requisition by tne department, in
tbe regular service, of whlrh tbey aro to be
placed. In tb is way a powerful and model navy
could be built up, and I think tbe powers that
be reognizc this fact."
Secretary Trecv, in order to carry out
this idea of unity in the plan and organiza
tion of the navy, has appointed a board
which will formulate and report to the Sec
retary a general plan to be followed in build
ing up the navy of how many and of what
classes of vessels it should consist; Low
much should be appropriated each year for
construction, so that within a reasonable
period of time the model or ideal navy
should be completed: what will be the prob
able deterioration by wear and tear, and
how great an expenditure would be neces
sary annually for repairs, aud how to over
come that deterioration. Heretofore there
has been no general plan of constructing
and organizing a navy approved or pre
pared, and this action of the Secretary is
very favorably received by the officials of
the department.
Tbe Chieftaincy of (be (secret Service Not
Subject to Senntorlal Approval,
Washington. July 27. An employe of
the Treasury Department said to the corre
spondent of The Dispatch to-day:
"I see by The Dispatch that the K of
L. of Western Pennsylvania are adopting
resolutions looking toward the defeat nt
the confirmation of Detective Furlong, if he
be appointed Chief of the Secret Service
Corps of the Treasury Department, While
I have no interest whatever in tbe strife for
the place, it may be well for the friends and
opponents of any of tbe candidates to know
that the Chief of the Secret Service is not
confirmed. His appointment is not a Pres
idental one, and the Senate has nothing to
do with it. Whatever is done in favor or
against anv of the candidates will have to
be done before the appointment is made by
the Secretary ol the Treasury, with whom is
the appointing power, though I hear the
President is inclined to interfere in the
conteact labor questions
Queer Fhnses of tbe Law That Come TJp
Only ns Hypothetical Cases.
Washington, July 27. Acting Secre
tary Batchelor bas written a letter to tbe Col
lector of Customs at Cape Vincent, N. Y.,
in regard to the enforcement of the Alien,
contract labor law, in which he says:
Tbe law does not prohibit aliens or foreigners
from volatarilv coming into this country seek
ing for employment and contracting for work
after tbeir arrival here. One who was an
American citizen, but bas become a naturalized
citizen of another country, is an alien In the
sene of the law. As to the case nf an Amer
ican citizen residing In Canada, but without
liaving been naturalized tbere, and coming into
tbls country under a -previous contract to
labor the question as to bis liability under the
law will be decided when a case is presented
with its facts and circumstances.
In view or the many complicated situation
and close business relations alongthe Canadian
line, which apparently were nut contemplated
or provided for by the law, it is preferred th
tbey be submitted to tbe consideration of Con
cre.s before a needlessly rigorous enforcement
of tbe law. possibly causing unnecessary hard
ship and financial Injury to American ouissas.
Mr. Bell'a Effort After Undying- Fame Not
Appreciated at Washington A Plt,ts
bars Public Building's
Washington, July 27. The citizens of
Pittsburg who have noted the fact that in
one of the hallways of the new Government,
building the name of "M. E. Bell, Super
vising Architect," appears chiseled into the
wall, may not be aware that this is a pecu
liarity which distinguishes the Pfttsburg
building from any other in the United
States. The edifice may have other extraor
dinary features, such as the length of
time it has been in process of construction,
but in that it has several counterparts in
other cities of the country. It is the one
Government building which bears the name
of the Supervising Architect. Just why
Jlr. Bell should have been anxious to im
mortalize himself in the walls of tbis par
ticular pile is a mystery, for no less than
four Supervising Architects have come and
gone since it was designed.
Supervising Architect Hill drafted the
original plans. A new plan, embodying
most of the old, was made by Mr. Bell.
Modifications were made by Mr. Freret, and
Supervising Architect Windrim has also
made some slight modifications. When it
is finished most of tbe structure will be
found to have been erected during the terms
of Freret and Windrim. In view of all
these circumstances tbe Government au
thorities are somewhat surprised that Mr.
Bell should have nssurued to inscribe bis
name on the walls, especially as such has
not been the custom at any time in regard
to many sued structures. The existence of
this remarkable legend has only recently
been made known at the Treasury Depart
ment, and it remains to be decided whether
it will simply be chiseled off or whether the
stone with the inscription will be removed
intact and brought here to be placed in the
National Museum beside the strange Runic,
Assyrian, Aztec and Toltec hieroglyphics
which form the attraction of one of the most
interesting departments of that vast col
lection. As tbere is no appropriation available for
tbis latter plan of disposal, it is suggested
that possibly the 100 citizens of Pittsburg
who presented a medal to Captain Armes,
for pulling General Beaver's nose, will, by
means of a private subscription, have tbe
entire stone removed and transported to the
capital as tbeir gift to the museum.
The Surprlslne Manner In Which CrnvrTord
County Llqnor Loses Itself.
rerrctAL tilxoram to tux dispatcil'i
Washington, July 27. Unofficial in
formation has been received at the Treasury
Department tbat there is a possibility of a
small scandal in that portion ol the internal
revenue district of the western connties of
Pennsylvania which produces whisky held in
bond in the storehouse in Crawford county.
A well-known druggist made a purchase of
whisky which had been in bond and found
that during a period when the ljguor should
not have shrunk more than three gallons to
the barrel it bad really sustained a loss of
about seven gallons to the barrel. Natural
ly this excited the curiosity of the pur
chaser, as well as the distiller from whom
the purchases was made, bnt as yet the mys
tery is not solved as to how seven gallons
could escape from each barrel while the en
tire lot bonded was under the eye ot the
keeper of the Governoient,storehouse.
Divorce Proceedings Interrupted by an Ab
sent Wile's Retnrn.
Denver, July 27. A romance in real
life is tbe story of the separation and re
uniting ot Cyprian Turcott, a retired cap
tain in tbe French army, and his wife,
Mary, after three years. Three years ago
Turcott found himself in Denver a poor
man. His wife and two children were sent
home on a visit to the wife's mother, near
Montreal, and Turcott went to wore. Let
ters between the husband and wife were
few aud at last ceased altogether.
Mrs. Turcott, who is a highly educated
and cultured woman, supported her three
children by teaching French and music
She lived with her husband's parents near
Montreal. Turcott, however, fell in love
with a lady of this city. She returned his
affection with ardor. Through a lawyer
early divorce proceedings were begun. Tur
cott alleged that his wile deserted him in
Boston. The divorce was granted quietly,
and It was his intention to marry his new
love on the evening of the same day. But
fate interposed.
A Iriend of the wife wrote to her of the
divorce proceedings and engaged Attorney
H. B. O'Reilly, who sent for him. The
lawyer told him the divorce proceedings
would cost him $500 before he got through,
and Turcott threw up both hands. Just
then there came a knock at the door and
Turcott was asked to open it. He did so,
and there on the threshold stood his wife
aud two little girls,one of whom be had never
seen before. Tbe sight melted the faithless
husband completely. The wife fell on his
neck and thev both wept. The divorce pro
ceedings will be dropped and there will be
no second wedding.

erable improved machinery put in. The
firm has many orders ahead.

The Body of a Man Faaad at Hots' Grove
Has Strange Missives About It
A Colored Carrie nod a
Clandestine Meeting.
The Coroner was notified yesterday that
the body of a man had been found at Boss'
Grove, in the Allegheny river. He had the
body brought to the morgue. Several let
ters were found in the man's clothes, mak
ing it a mysterious case. The deceased was
evidently Wallace Wheeler, ot Tarentum,
the letters were thus addressed. A bill alto
showed Wallace Wheeler to be indebted to
I. B. Loucks, of Tarentum, to the extent of
$2 50.
Tbe mystery is largely enveloped in two
letters signed "Carrie," and a third writ
ten by someone who simply signs "H." The
first two are written from ML, Pleasant. The
substance of the first, dated June 11, is as
Well, Wallance, I am in Mt. Pleasant. I ar
rived here at 6 o'clock last evening.
Pap did not know me.. He looked at me. I
knew him. I think one week will be
long enough for me to stay here. Tbere are a
lot of hard cases here. I gave pap what money
I bad left. He said: "My child, that is more
than George or Budd done when they came
home. They did not give me a cent," and then
he cried.
Tbe other, date June 14, also written from
Mt. Pleasant, is as follows:
I received yours yesterday and was glad to
hear from home I call that my borne became
I would not live here. They are tbe toughest
niggers I ever saw. Tbey say I am the proud,
est woman here. I would not do as these
coons are "doing for tbe world. I cannot tell
you here, but when I come home I will tell you,
and that won't be long. pap wants me
to tay two months, but I would not do so for
$100. Polly is here, just as crazy as ever.
Sally's husband is in tbe Greeusburg Jail.
If you fend mo money I will come borne, or you
can come up. Tell Prince I have not forgotten
him. When I speak of him they think there is
some little boy there, but 1 ted tbem it is my
little dog. 1 miss him very much. Kiss him
for me, and tell him to bo good un' 11 1 come
home, and he shall oot be tied so much.
The other letter is the strangest of the
three, aud gives the impression that some
plot was laid. Half of the letter is missing,
and the other half is so badly soiled from
being in tbe water that it can scarcely be
read. The pari decipherable reads:
I want to meet yon to-night about 10 o'clock.
But If you don't meet me, Carrie knows where
you are. It Is a great secret, and If anybody
knows of this meeting we are done for. My
life depends on our meeting to-night. I hare
beard that you have been telling about our
meeting. If yon tell this, I will kill myself.
Destroy this right away, so Carrie does not find
it, for then I am lost It is about Clendennen,
if you understand it. He has been talking
Another, letter taken from Wheeler's
clothes bears this address: "Miss Carrie
Strouden, Tarentum, Pa.;" begins "My
dear daughter." and is signed "Lizzie S.,"
evidently from the girl's mother. The let
ter contains a lot of gossip about the neigh
bors in Mt. Pleasant,
One thing appears certain; that is, while
Wheeler was a white man, "Carrie" is evi
dently a colored woman. The inquest,
which will probably not be held until to
morrow, will likely straighten the matter
out, y
They Almost Kill n 6- Months- Old Baby,
Who Wa. Ill With Fever.
Mrs. Joseph Malia, of Sobo, complained
to Alderman Jones last evening that her
brother, James Lanigan, came to the house,
and after partaking of considerable beer,
got into a quarrel with her husband.
While engaged in the scuffle, the
cradle containing this 6-months-old child
was upset. The child has been lying sick
for tbe past few days with a fever and not
expected to live.
i Mrs. Malia plead for them to stop, but in
stead of stopping, her husband struck her in
the face, knocking her and the baby down.
The fight proceeded.
A Thief Captures 8185 Belonging to a
Bloomtleld Citizen.
A daring robbery of 185 was made from
Patrick Shields, or Main ateet, Bloomfield,
last Thursday night. Shields was in a store

and intended paying a small bill.
He was followed into the store by a young
man. Upon Shields opening his pocket
book the man sprang at him and attempted
to throw him to tbe ground. He succeeded
in wrenching the monev from Shields' purse
and in an instant had disappeared.

Leads Searchers for .the Missing
Colonel Jones to a Manhole.
While His Money and Ilis Watch Taken by
His Brutal Murderer.
With the Greatest Coolness the Hnwerer Tells How
the Deed Was Done.
A trail of blood led thp searchers for the.
remains of Colonel A. E. Jones, of Cincin
nati, to a manhole, where the oody was
found sewed up in a blanket. His money'
and watch were gone. Charles Bligh, his
colored servant, acted suspiciously and fled,
but was captured at Madisonville.
Cincinnati, July 27. The bodr of
Colonel A. E. Jones was found this, morn
iug in a manhole not far from his residence,
murdered and robbed.
The murder of Dr. A. E. Jones, familiarly
known as Colonel Jones, is 'one of the most
shocking things that could have occurred in
Cincinnati. The Colonel was in his 77th
year, but was as active as a man oi CO. He
had always had an inclination for mili
tary 'life, and kept it up by holding a
connection with the Ohio National Guards,
serving for a, long time as surgeon of the
First Begiment. Governor Eoraker, who
was bis neighbor, appointed him a member
of his staff as Surgeou General. He had
been active in public affairs, serving often
in the Municipal Council, and had besides
hold several offices under appointment from
the General Government. He -was perhaps
more widely known in Cincinnati than any
other citizen.
Dr. Jones left his house about 3:30 o'clock
Thursday afternoon, wearing no coat, his
feet in slippers, and went in the direction of
his stable. He asked what time it was,
thousrh wearing his watch. That was the
last seen of him alive. The family did not
become alarmed until after night and then
prosecuted their search quietly until yester
day, when notice was given to the police.
During the day yesterday a trail of blood
was discovered opposite the doctor's stable
on Cemetery street, and, being followed,
was traced to Park avenue, thence south
two or three squares to the junction of
Cypress street and Francis lane, where on
tbe grass was quite a pool of blood. It was
here, in a manhole of the sewer, that the
body was found this morning. It was
or rather sewed up, so that it was drawn out
by means of a rope fastened around it by a
man wbo had been lowered for that purpose.
The body bad been doubled up compactly,
as if for convenience in carrying, and it is
apparent tbat tbe trail of blood was that
which trickled Irom his wounds as his mur
derer carried him to the place where he
thought to conceal forever the trace cf his
crime, for he hoped the water would carry
the body into the river. It was found that
the doctor's gold watch aad his money were
gone. This must have been the motive for
tbe murder, as the doctor had not an enemy
in the world.
There was but a single wound upon the
body. It was upon the back part of the
head and slightly on the right side, as if tbe
blow had been given from behind. The the
ory now prevalent is that the murderer was
Charles Bligh, the colored servant, and that
after committing the crime he hid the body
until night and then, putting it into a grain
sack, he carried it to its place of -coneeal--ment.
Bligh was at the house all day yes
terday and told of his last interview with
the Colonel. "When he left last night he
said h would return at 530 this morning,
but he has not yet been found. A hoe in
the stable bears murks which are pro
nounced to be blood stains.
The fact that Charles Bligh, the colored
servant of Colonel A. E. Jones, was missing
to-day, thus confirming the suspicion against
him of murdering his employer, did not
prevent the police lrom making other ar
rests. Andrew uuuson, colored, who left
the Colonel's employment last spring, after
being seven yeais with him, was arrested.
He denied all knowledge of the crime
and told such a straight story that
he was discharged by the Chief of
Police. Bichard Lee, colored, falso a for
mer.employe, was arrested. Lee claims to
have seen a man on Thursday night, some
where in the neighborhood where the body
was found, and to have heard a noise in that
directiou. Another arrest is Frank Bu
ford, a bricklayer, in whose house Bligh
and his wife are boarders. Bulord says
that he met Bligh last night and they had
a drink together in a saloon and tbat
Bligh got a ?3 bill changed.
He rsays Bligh left the
house early this morning. Tho Chief of
Police after a searching examination of
fiuford was satisfied of his innocence and
ischurged him. The Chief of Police is cer-
tain that Bligh is the murderer.
Bligh has Been employed about six weeks
with Colonel Jones. He came from Madi
son county, Ky. He bears a' bullet in his
left arm as the result of some trouble there.
He is described as a mulatto 30 years old,
BJ feet tall, weighing 130 pounds and wear
ing a mustache and short side whiskers.
His wife says he came home last night
late, and alter he was in bed some one
called him and told him he was wanted at
Colonel Jones'; that they were suspicious of
him. He got up and was gone awhile, but
came back to bed. He got up early this
morning and said he was going to Colonel
Jones' and if they did not want him he
would go down to the city and buy some
furniture. Bligh was with tbe searching
party all day yesterday, and when he left
the house last night he said he would re
turn at 520 tbis morning. He was quite
sure Colonel Jones was out of bis mind and
tbat he wonld be found wandering in some
of the ravines not far from Ills resi
dence. A man who was with him
says his manner was disagreeable and
almost shocking on account of the levitr
.with which he talked ot the missing man.
Tne ponce nave a tueory that tbe murder
was committed as the result of a quarrel,
and that when Bligh saw what he had done
he put the body over the fence in the woods
until after dark, when he got a grain sack
and packed the body in it and carried it to
the manhole.
Bligh was arrested this evening at Madi
sonville, O., and brought to the police
station here at 825.
Madisonville, wbere Bligh was arrested,
is not more than five miles in an air line
from the scene of the murder. Bligh was
brouehtinto tbecity and taken "betore Super
intendent Deitzsb, of tbe police force, where
without hesitation or restraint be made a
full confession of the crime. His manner
was easy, and his story of horror was told
with as little feeling as if he had been nar
rating the most commonplace events of a
dull day's experience. His story was as
"My name is Charles A. Bligh. I was. born
at Richmond, Ky. Am 29 years old. I am
married. In March last I came to tbis city,
and on tbe third "Wednesday in March en
gaged to work for Dr. A. E. Jones as hojtlor
ana for other work at J5 a week. On the
afternoon of Thursday last I was working in
the garden pulling weeds, when the doctor
came out in his shirt sleeves, wearing slippers
and a slouch hat and began to scold tno. I bad
just come oat of tbe barn where I had gone for
a necessary purpose. Tbe doctor told me be

I struck him a blowfrorn behind on tbe back of

dead. He was net able to move: he only
breathed. I went on with my work In
tbe garden until about 6.30 o'clock,
when I got a sack In the barn that had

I conld easily pnsh his body into tno sack. I
then tied it up with a hitching strap and went
into the house and got my supper as usual. The
folks asked if I hadseen tbe doctor and I told
them I had not.
After supper they sent me to Mr. Thornton's,
tbe doctor's son-in-law, to see If he was tbere.
I cams back and told tbem tbat tbe doctor had
not been there. Then I went to tbe power
house of the cable road and talked awhile with
a colored man and came back about 10
o'clock. I took tbe sack on my shoulder
and carried It down Park avenue to
the man hole Two persons were
ahead nf me as 1 went, but I kept out of their
way. I laid tbe sack down on tbe grass while I
took off tbe Iron covering of tbe manhole and
threw it in, covered up tbe maribole and went
back to Colonel Jones' house, and soon after
went to my own borne on Washington avenue,
next day I went back and worked as usual
till afternoon, when they told me
1 need not work any more, only I
should stay around. I answered Questions
many times that day, that I had cot seen the
doctor. Last night after I got home, Andv
Hudson came to me- and said the detectives
had been to see him to ask what kind of a man
I was. JIndson said he told tbem I

from tbe way tbe detectives talked be thought
they were about to put the doctor's disappear

I tried to find some people I used to know in

Make the Strnwbonrd Association Anxious
to Control the Lima Mills 31.000,-
000 the Price Fold for Tbem.
Lima, July 27. The deal whereby the
Lima paper mills pass into the control of
the American Strawboard Association was
consummated here this afternoon. The
mills were the property oi B. C. Faurot,who
organized a stock company 20 years ago
with ten members and built them. He
afterward bought up the stock of the other
members, and for the last 15 years has owned
and operated the mills himself, in the
meantime spending $400,000 or $500,000 in
erecting new buildings, adding latest ma
chinery and extending the facilities in every
way. He also entered into the manufactur
ing of egg cases, buying up all the
patents in the United States, until
he had absolute control of this important in
dustry. The American Strawboard Asso
ciation has been endeavoring to secure the
mills for several years, and has had repre
sentatives here at different times to confer
with the management, the object being to
buy the mills and close them. This propo
sition did not coincide with Mr. Faurot's
views. He wasted the mills to continue
runnine, as it wss one of the first and most
important industries established in the city.
Finally Mr. B. F. Newcoznb, of Quincy,
111., Vice President of the association, and
Mr. Baird, of Akron, General Attorney,
came here about ten days ago to confer, but
went away again without fully consum
mating the deal. After they went away an
injunction was obtained which prevented
them from securing the mills in such a way
as to shnt them down. The same
gentlemen returned this afternoon and it is
understood paid $1,000,000 for the property,
although the exact figures are not obtaina
ble. The mills are the largest and most
complete in the country and hare been in
operation for 20 years, paying out many
hundreds of thousands of dollars for straw.
This deal will put all the mills in the coun
try in the control of the association.
There is a general feeling of regret that
Mr. Faurot is to retire from the manage
ment, but he has shown his business sagacity
and public spirit by having the mills con
tinue running. The egg case business has
grown to immense proportions in the last
tew years, the cases being shipped all over
the world, and it was this important fea
ture the association could not control with

A Woman Naturalist Frightens Her Com
panlons Half to Death.
Levlston Journal.'!
One of Portland's bright young ladies has
a decided taste for studies in natural his
tory, and woe to the bug, beetle or butterfly
which comes within her reach. She does
not share in the general aversion to the rep
tile family, but handles toads, lizards and
even snakes familiarly and fearlessly.
One day last week s'he was at Peak's Isl
and with friends, and in their rambles
about the fields and swamps she bagged a
number of specimens. Among them was a
green snake about two feet long. The sight
of the squirming creature evoked screams
from, the other feminine members of the
party, but the young naturalist caught it
up and allowed it to coil about her wrist.
This was too much for the feelings of her
friends, however, and after a while she
slipped the snake into her pocket, for want
of better accommodations.
Presently the snake was forgotten. The
party boarded one of the Cisco Bay Com
pany's boats, and when about half way to
the city a great commotion was suddenly
caused among the passengers by the appear
ance of a green snake crawling upon the
deck. Ladies screamed and jumped upon
the seats or fled incontinently, and some ot
the sterner sex were somewhat taken by
surprise at the sight of a serpent in that un
expected place. The young woman, as soon
as she realized the situation, sprang to re
cover her property, but too late. A boat
band pitched the reptile overboard and
science had met with another loss.

Seven alarms of fire were running within 15

passengers on the cable cars were
compelled to stand upon the seats.
In the southwestern portion of

Is Made Upon the Camps of the Tenth

Aud Bravely Repulse the Enemy Without
Losing Any Men.
And Start far Home, Learing Behind Them llaay
The camp of the Tenth and Eighteenth
Regiments was abandoned last night The
boys had a pleasant time, conducted them
selves well, and the townspeople nearby
were sorry to lose them.
CASirs O. H. Eippet )
Neab TTNiONTOWir, July 27. )
Encampment is over for the Eighteenth
and Tenth Begiments, National puard of
Pennsylvania. Evans Grove, the scene of
the encampment, is to-day a silent woods.
Both regiments will be at home to-day. No
military duty was performed to-day; it was
simply moving day for the regiments.
The Tenth Begiment broke camp at 9
o'clock to-day, and the Eighteenth at noon.
The closing scenes around the two camps
were full of interest, though the bustle and
confusion of taking down tents and packing
camp property was a less dignified object of
contemplation than two well drilled regi
ments. A special train of seven cars was in wait
ing for the Tenth Begiment at Eyans sta
tion from an early hour this morning, but
it was 2 o'clock before it pulled out with its
gallant freight. Company A, of Mbnon
gahela City, being the only company to go on
the P., "V. & C. B. B,, was offered transpor
tation in a special car attached to the train
which leaves town at 320. Colonel Haw
kins remained iu town, and left with Com
pany A for Monongahela City. It was
after 12 o'clock when the Tenth got started.
When the tents were being taken down the
boys had considerable fun getting some
one into the canvas and tossing him high in
the air.
The Eighteenth broke camp at noon, and
the afternoon was consumed in sending in
the camp property for shipment. Tbe regi
ment marched to town from the camp this
evening, and left in a special train of 12 cars.
The Eighteenth sent a heavy patrol and
guard to town to prevent any straggling or
disturbance. A short time before tbe regi
ment reached town the patrol began pick
ing up the "boys who had put on
heavy marching order and come into town
early for a good time. The principal reason
for their coming was the order closing all
saloons when the troops got to town. Those
who came without passes thought if the
patrol did get them they would be taken to
tbe trainjor kept under guard till the train
left. They were badly mistaken, as every
man was marched back two hot dusty miles
to camp and kept there till the regiment
started from camp.
Two Company -A boys resisted to the end,
and one of tbem was wounded in the hand
by a bayonet in the hands of a patrol. The
patrol says the private struck at him and
hit the bayonet. It created great excitement
for a time. .The bayonet passed through the
muscle between the thumb and first finger of
the right hand. The trouble arose from a
very neat little game tbe man was playing.
He fixed his bayonet and began walking the
beat in front of the Spottsylvania Hotel, aud
when he would see runaways go into the bar
he would follow and place them under ar
rest, but would finally agree to let them off
on condition that tbey would "set 'em up."
He was thus engaged when the patrol found
him usnrping his authority.
At H30 the Eighteenth marched to town
after giving three rousing cheers for Camp
Bippey. The entire regiment marched
directly to the Pennsylvania Bailroad
depot, where a special train of 12 cars was
awaiting them. As soon as they entered
the town tbe band struck up the familiar
strain of "Goodby, My Lover, Goodbv,"
which the entire regiment sang until they
reached, the depot. Tbe boys had to lie at
tbe depot from 5 till 8, and a gay time they
had oi it nntil the train pulled out amid the
cheers of the men and the waving kerchiefs
of the atoresaia "lovers.
The event of last night was a sham battle
at midnight on the drill ground ot the
Tenth. A few of the men in the regiment
had an inkling of. what was going to hap
pen, but no one knew when to expect it.
Yet when the long roll was beaten at mid
night it took just 21 minutes to get the
whole regiment to the field in perfect order.
Companies D and K had been quietly taken
put a lew minutes in advance of the souud
ing of the alarm, the former to act as enemy
ana tne latter as scirmisners. .ttach man
was supplied with ten rounds of blank
cartridges, and rapid firing and quick ax
ecu t Ion of field movements lasted about 15
minutes, at the end of which the enemy
were declared routed. The darkness and
the suddenness with which the men were
called out made this sham battle one of the
most exciting events of the encampment.
The firing roused many of the town people
from their sleep to wouder what was go
ing on.
Over in the camp of the Eighteenth much
the same programme was observed. The
long roll was beaten about 11 P. M. to indi
cate the camp was attacked by the enemy.
The men were in their drill field in a ew
minutes in line of battle and fired a volley
into tbe ranks of the supposed foe, after
which they returned quietly to camp. The
firing was plainly heard in town and many
people went to camp even at tbe late hour.
Now that the boys are gone the people gen
erally are sorry, especially the businessmen,
as the town has done an immense business
since the encampment With few excep
tions the boys conducted themselves in a
manner gratifying to the officers and citi
The Tenth and Eighteenth Itealmonts Re
tarn From Camp.
The camp near TJniontown of the Tenth
and Eighteenth Regiments broke up yester
day. The Tenth Begiment passed through
the city a little after 5 p. M. en route home.
At 12 o'clock P. M. the special bearing the
Eighteenth Begiment pulled into the Union
depot One company had left the train at
Braddock, leaving eight destined to Pitts
burg. The boys left the tram very quietly,
were formed in line and marched up Liberty
street as if they were just returning from
war instead of camp. Not even a hurrah
was sent up. The only thing that would
have told a stranger inside the depot tbat
the troops had returned from camp was a
short tune bv the band on the forward plat
form of the depot.
At New Grant street ,two companies
halted and at a word of command broke
ranks and went quietly in different direc
tions to tbeir homes. Another detachment
went down Liberty avenue and the other
company went to their respective armories.
One ot the officers said that nothing had
happened to mar either the pleasure or the
routine of the camp. There bad not been a
single case of sickness, several of the boys
had the sense to say, and declared that they
never had a jollier time or enjoyed them
selves more.

The liveliest meeting held by the mem

drawing out a good attendance, and they
were not disappointed in the matter of unlooked-for
incidents. The trouble between

in refusing to admit X. S. Hees. the dele

slate roofers. This is the organization that
tbe Federation raenjbers claimed was non
union, and said they would -not sit in the
meeting if the delegate was admitted. It
was expected by the Federation men that
there would be a hard fight to give the dele
gate his seat; but the latter's supporters
apparently deserted him. Upon the roll
cull it was found that 28 members were
opposed to admitting the delegate, while 3
wanted to allow him to come in.
The Carpenters' Union presented a griev
ance against James Getty, Jr., and J. T.
Natcher, a contractor. These men were
alleged to have hired non-union men. A
committee was appointed to wait on them
to secure the employment of union men.

Bismarck is working for a diplomatic
triumph in the shape of a meeting between
the Emperors of Russia, Austria andA'GerTjj
many, with some prospect of success, though
the undertaking is a difficult one. Such a
meeting would be some guarantee of peace.
cOFTEjanT, lS89.jrr mw Tons AssooaTxa
Beblut, July 27. The greatest diplo
matic triumph of Prince Bismarck's life
will be achieved if he succeeds in his latest
project, which was to arrange a meeting be
tween the Czar, Emperor Francis Joseph
and Emperor William in Berlin. News of
the Czar's assent to the proposal that he '
should visit the German Court on August
23 was received at the Foreign Office Mon
day, causing the greatest satisfaction.
Prince Bismarck Immediately communicat
ed with Count Kalnoky, calling his atten
tion to the opportunity presented by the near
ly coincident visits of the Czar and Emperor
Francis Joseph, and proposing that at in
terview be held between the three monarchs,
as well as .conferences between himself,
Count Kalnoky and M. de Giers, the ob
ject being to dissipate all misunderstand
ings. Officials here have been Instructed to
maintain absolute silence. They deny all
knowledge of the Czar's intentions, and de
clare tbat they cannot count even upon a
visit from him. The semi-official press have
been similarly directed to maintain reserye
on the subject, on tbe ground tbat criticism
might alter the present favorable disposition
oi the Czar.
The official circle in Vienna is less ob
servant of secrecy, and discusses the chances
of an interview. Count Kalnoky, it Is
stated, has placed himself in Bismarck's
hands, but retuses to make any overtures to
tbe Czar regarding a meeting with Emperor
Francis Joseph. If Prince Bismarck per
suades the Czar to consent to the interview,
the Austrian Emperor will postpone his
coming until the 18th. He will rot be
present, when Emperor William receives
the Czar, but will go to Kiel for the naval
review, returning aiterward to Potsdam,
where it is intended the Emperors shall meet.
The Chancellor will return here on the 12th
and remain throughout the visits of the
Czar and Emperor Francis Joseph. He is
supposed to be aiming, not at a definite
treaty ot alliance involving Bussia in the
Central European League, but only to re
establish better relations between the three
empires and balk French negotiations lor
an offensive and deiensive alliance with
Bussia. He has a foothold for a renewed
entente in the Czar's increased intensity of
hatred for the Anarchists. Becent com
munications with St. Petersburg regarding
the plotting ot refugees in Switzerland
leading to a common pressure upon the
Swiss Government afford a basis lor con
certed action by the three Powers against
Socialists, Anarchists and Nihilists.
as to this sphere of action would tend to
modify existing enmities. Even if only the'
semDiance oi amity were ontainea it would
eive new guarantees of peace for several
years. Prince Bismarck's chances of ar
ranging an interview have been strength
ened by tbe support of the Russian Embas
sador, Count Schoavaloff, but everything
depends upon the mood of the Czar.
The Kreuz Zeitung has semi-official ad
vices from St. Petersburg, saying: '"The
Czar, who has frequently altered his in
tention regarding the return of the visit of
Emperor William, has now assented under
the persistent entreaties of M. He Giers and
M. Vishnegradski. Since theBorki acci
dent, the Czar has had a dread of a railway
journey, even with the entire route guarded
by select troops. He will be accompanied
to Berlin by the Empress and the whole 1m-
gerial family. The party will proceed to
openhagan after leaving Berlin."
Russian papers, however, do not believe
tbat the Czar's assent will be obtained by
Prince Bismarck even though backed by
M. De Giers and Count Schouvaloff. The
iV'ote Treyma declares that the Czar goes
to Berlin simplv as an act of courtesy and
that his visit will have no bearing upon the
European situation unless Germany changes
her policy by consenting to satlify the legiti
mate aspirations of Bussia.

Emperor William arrived at Wilhelm's
Haven this morning. As the Imperial yacht
was sighted entering the roads, salutes were
fired by the war ships in the harbor and by
shore batteries. When His Majesty disem
barked, tl guard of honor on the quay pre
sented an address and the band played the
national anthem. An immense crowd, in
cluding hosts of visitors, were assembled to
greet the Emperor. His Majesty is bronzed
and vigorous-looking. Immediately upon
landing he sent a telegram to the Empress,
who, accompanied by her four sons, left
Kissingen at 2 o'clock this afternoon for
Wilhelm's Haven. Their Majesties will
remain there until Wednesday, wnen the
Emperor will leave for England.
The severity of the sentence pronounced
on the Gortrlgbt miners convicted at Bres
lau of rioting during the recent strike there
will probably lead to an appeal to the Em
peror. The prisoners are ail under 20 years
of age, and a number of them are not mora
than 16 years old.
An article in the North German Qaxett
on strikes shows an ominous change of
front on tbe part of the Government toward
tbe miners. It argues that the recent
strikes were a manifest abuse of the right
of coalition. Semi-official newspapers con
cur, and predict that the result of the com
mission of inquiry into the miners' griev
ances will be nil, and that tbe Government
will cease to interfere beyond suppressing'
breaches of the law.
Dr. Peters has sent a letter from East

ly adopts decisive measures, the English
will completely exclude the Germans from
