Friends of Foraker in Washington as sume that the Governor knew what he was about when he took issue with the admin istration on the Tanner matter. Major Warren had another conference with the President and Secretary Noble yesterday, but was not prevailed upon to accept the Commissionership of Pensions. Major Merrill says he would not accept it if it were offered him, which it has not been. tSFZCIAX. TEIXGBAM TO TOT DISPATCH. WASHrKGTOX, September 20. The most treasonable anti-administration utterances on record thus far have come from Governor foraker. Friends of the administration realize, now that Governor Foraker has spoken out about Mr. Noble, what the tin explainable indirection of their course has been with reference to Corporal Tanner. Governor Foraker has a lively campaign on his hands. Bepnblicane here assume that he knows exactly what he is about. He sees that the forced resignation of Tanner 'must be continually explained because the President and Secretary of the Interior have never deemed it necessary to explain it Be takes the easiest, as it is also the boldest course, and lets drive at Mr. NoWe. HIS TALK ON THE STUMP. Governor Foraker says on the stump that the only reason why Corporal Tanner was removed is because he expedited the pen sion business too much, and that inasmuch as that assumption would indicate that the President's ante-election promises were false, the only inference was that Secretary Noble was to blame. On that point the Governor said he could not speak, since he had never heard of this particular Cabinet officer before he was made Secretary of the Interior, and had heard bat very little about him since. Foraker' has evidently cone tothe -conclusion that XT IS USELESS to court the help of the administration, and he goes in to make his campaign without any of its assistance. He ia willing even to take advantage of its greatest mis takes. The invitation from the Republican committee asking Corporal Tanner to stump the State for Foraker was sent before the forced resignation. It is somewhat doubtful if another one comes. It would be a source of embarrassment to the Corporal if It did, because, being a candidate for another office, and having his friends hard at work for him, he could not seem to join in the antagonism to the administration which an open espousal of the Foraker in terpretation of the difficulty would imply. The Corporal would doubtless enjoy stumping Ohio but for this objection. His heart would be in the task of showing that his mouth is not so damaging to the cause of the Republican party as it has been repre sented to be. THE SERIOUS THING for the Republicans is that here is Governor Foraker, an avowed candidate for 1892, openly taking issne against the administra tion with a full understanding of what that means with reference to his own chances of carrying Ohio. Foraker and Alger of Michigan, are the two powerful Republicans who have thus far announced in distinct terms that they ask the administration for nothing and will criticise its acts whenever they chose. It would doubtless interest Mr. Harrison, if he had any way of investigating a ques tion of the sort, to know what the choice of his National Committee would be as be tween John Noble on one side and Alger and Foraker on the other. There is an addition, most every day now, to the official Munchausen literature of the Tanner case. Secretary Noble denied that he and Secretary Tracy had hard words, while his closest friend, perhaps, in Washington, was insisting that Mr. Noble had sworn at the Secretary of the Navy and was RATHER PEOOD OP IT. Private Secretary Halford denied that Secretary Noble had made a personal matter of Tanner's case, when everybody in town had been hearing for a month that the Secretary was going to make a personal matter of it, and had been hearing for another month, directly from his own office that he had made a personal matter of it. To-day it is ex-Senator Albert Daggett's turn to make an official statement. He tele graphed the Star this afternoon: "Ihave never said, nor is it true, that Commissioner Tanner was promised the Recordership, or any other office, before he consented to re sign. On the contray, I have said, and it is true, that he resigned unasked, and, of course, without promise of future political office." The President did not ask Mr. Tanner to resign. .He only sent word that while he didn't like to ask him for his resignation, he would be very much indebted if the Cor poral would relieye the administration of the embarrasment which his conduct of the pension office was causing. TTARNEE DOESN'T TAKE IT. General Warner started for home this evening, intending to stop at Deer Park for a short time, in compliance with a request from the President Mention of his fact aused a rumor that the General had recon- mm tip . . of Tlio m m slv W sidered his declination of the office of Com missioner of Pensions, and would accept, but to the correspondent of The Dispatch asbe was about to leave lor the station, he said that he was merely stopping oft at Deer Park on his way West, and that his declina tion of the office tendered him was final and absolute. A late dispatch from Deer Park says: "Secretary Noble and Major Warner came from Washington to-night and went at once to the President's cottage. Secretary Noble came at the President's request. They went over the 'whole ground of the pension Commissionership with the President, but no decision was reached. Major Warner will leave Deer Park for Kansas City to morrow morning. A telegram to-night from Lawrence, Mass., says: "Major Merrill says it is 'un qualifiedly false' that the position of Commissioner ot Pensions had been ten dered by the President to him and that he had about decided to accept. The Insur ance Commissioner, reiterates that he does not want the place, preferring to stay where he is." THE LAW IS CLEAE. Socretnry Koble Thrown Cold Wnter on a Proposition to Make Pension Knlcs More Definite Mnjor Merrill Too Talkative. ISPECIAI. TELEGRAM TO TOT DISrATCR.1 Washington, September 20. It has been suggested by several of the persons in terested in the recent Tanner affair that it would be a great relief to the Commissioner of Pensions, the Board of Appeals, and the Secretary of the Interior himself, if Congress were to make more specific enactments than exist in any of the statutes at present, defin ing and limiting the powers of thy Pension Bureau, prescribing rules of evidence, etc. Secretary Noble throws cold water on the idea. The laws are already specific enough, he considers, to satisfy anyone, and all the Commissioner has to do is to obey them. But the whole body of the law in pension cases is not to be found in the statutes the precedents established by decisions of courts and of the bureaus in past years should be as binding as such things are in general jurisprudence. ME. NOBLE'S IDEAS. The Secretary refuses to make any appli cation of his ideas to the Tanner matter, or to state what policy will be expected of the new Commissioner. "My own pension policy," said he to The Dispatch corre spondent to-day, "may be very briefly summed tip. I was a soldier. I made my way up from the ranks. I belong to the Grand Army. I want to Bee every old soldier get a pension who deserves one under the law; and I want him to get the amount allowed him by the law, and I want him to get it in the exact order of time prescribed by the law. And, if lam to stay where I am, everything must be done according to the law, which is so plain that there is no necessity for mistaking it." Assistant Secretary Bussey expressed views very similar. "The statutes and the precedents are yonder," said he, pointing to a bookcase at his side. "We are not here to enact new legislation, but to inter pret, according to the best of our lights, that which already exists. precedents of the bureau hold good as long as "they are in accordance with established and recognized legal prin ciples. Here, for example, is a case which has subjected me to much unreasoning crit icism, where I ruled that a dishonorable discharge from the service did not work a forfeiture of pension. It reversed, to be sure, a ruling made by Commissioner Black; but his ruling flew right in the face of the Lsupreme law of theland, and all X did was uj insist apou urxnging me uepaximem back to where it belonged. It was no pleas ure to me to make such a decision, I am sure; all my sympathies were the other way, but there was no course lelt open to me, as an honest man and a sworn officer." Acting Commissioner Smith was asked whether it wastrue that he had suspended one of Commissioner 'lanner's rules, per mitting the rerating of pensions of 54 or less to be made without the applicant un dergoing a medical examination. "No, sir," said he, "Ihave MADE NO NEW BULES ofmyownand suspended none of the late Commissioners, I have no idea how the As sociated Press came to make such an erro neous statement" Secretary Noble had already called upon the Commissioner to explain the unauthorized order of suspen sion he was reported as making, and he had answered in a letter denying the story in toto, and saying that everything remained as Mr. Tanner had left it. It is reported to-day that the President has taken a sober second thought on the question of appointing Major Merrill, of Massachusetts, to the Pension Commission ership. He does not like the freedom with which that gentleman has opened his heart to reporters ever since his appointment was spoken of as probable. Nobody here is as tonished at this story, for Major Merrill, while a very amiable man, is TALKATIVE TO A DEGREE. Maior Merrill is the latest reDudiator. Hs declares through a friend in this citv that he never had the interviews attributed to him, and which arc believed to have influ enced the President to withhold his com mission. Major Warner has been called to Deer Park by a letter from the President, and it is understood that he will be urged to make sacrifices of personal comfort for the good of the party. It is believed that the Noble-Tanner cor respondence, of which so much has been said and written, will be given to the public very soon, as it is expected to modify or set nt rest many comments which have been passed upon the Secretary, through misap prehension of his precise attitude toward his late subordinate. SECEETAET WHARTON SNUBBED. An Act of Wnlkcr Blnlne'a Slay Cause Him to Resign. ISFECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCn.1 Washington, September 20. The re port is circulated from, trustworthy sources that Assistant Secretary Wharton, of the State Department, is about to resign. The cause assigned is discontent with his recent treatment there. It seems that on the day of the Cabinet meeting to discuss the secret session, he was prepared to go to the White House in place of his absent chief, and laid a number of papers on bis desk, expecting to take them over with him. Just as he was about to start, Walker Blaine, fresh from Bar Harbor and his father's presence, entered the room, looked over the papers, and took them under his arm. "Excuse me," protested Mr. Wharton, "I fiad laid those papers out to take to the Cabinet meetimr." "I understand," answered young Blaine, significantly, "but I will save you the troublp. It is my father's prefer ence that I represent him in his absence." There was nothing for Mr. Wharton to do but to submit to let his subordinate take his place as the ostensible head of the Depart ment, but he naturally felt sore over it The story of the incident leaked out only to-day.

Every effort is being made in behalf of Mrs. Robert Ray Hamilton to save her from State prison. Her husband has not lost in terest in her. She wants the child, who is tb be kept for the present by Mrs. Rupp, of Noll cottage. IBPECIAL TELIORAH TOTnEDISPATCn.l Max's Landing, N. J., September 20. Eight prisoners convicted at this week's term of the County Court will be taken by Sheriff Johnson to Trenton to-morrow morn ing, but Mrs. Robert Ray Hamilton will not be among them. Developments in the case to-day make it probable that she will not go to the State prison for some time to come. Every effort is being made in her behaU. An appeal from the decision of Judge Reed is to be taken by Captain Ferry, the woman's counsel, who is expected to present his application for a new trial to Chancellor Bird, of Trenton, next week. Mr. Hamilton himself has not lost his in terest in the case, and is still lending his wealth and influence in bis wife's behalf. A SIGNIFICANT TELEGBAM was directed to Mrs. Hamilton and was re ceived at May's Landing this morning, and taken up to her attic prison by Sheriff Johnson, who first examined its contents, as he does every communication that is for warded to her. It was dated at Philadel phia, and was from Captain Perry. The contents were as follows: Will see Hamilton at Woodbury to-day, and will see you to-night on important business. Why Captain Perry and Mr. Hamilton should meet at Woodbury to-day cannot be learned here. Judge Garrison, of the Su preme Court, is at that place, presiding at the Billman murder trial, and there are ru mors that he is being consulted in the case. But as he will not preside' at the next term of court here in December, where Judge Reed always occupies the bench unless he is sick, it is hard to understand what he can do in the Hamilton affair, except to use his influence. THE CAPTAIN DOESN'T COME. Captain Perry did not arrive here to night The last train which stops at this place gets here at 5 o clock, and failed to land him among its passengers. Sheriff Johnson was at the depot He waited long enough after the departure of the train to purchase tickets for the transportation of his prisoners to Trenton to-morrow, and then drove rapidly back to his home. Mrs. Hamilton had dressed early in the after noon and was sitting up, eagerly awaiting the visit of her counsel. The Sheriff's an nouncement that Captain Perry could not arrive to-night was tempered by the assur ance that be would in all probability arrive here to-morrow morning, on the early train from Atlantic City, where Captain Perry ijyes.. ' After receiving the-dispatch from her lawyer this morning, Mrs. Hamilton spent two'hours in the preparation of a letter ad dressed to Judge Alfred Reed, at Trenton. Dr. D. B. Ingersoll, who attends the young woman, found her engaged in this task when he paid HIS DAILY VISIT before noon. To Mrs. Johnson, the Sheriff's wife, who always accompanies the doctor in his visits to the prisoner, Mrs. Hamilton explained that she thought the Judge would be more lenient to her it he perfectly under stood the circumstances of her case. The long letter was pathetic. It was not at all the practical communication that would appeal to the sympathies, exclusively mental, or a Judge of Alfred Reed's stern caliber. Mrs. Hamilton made a piteous ap peal not to be taken where she could not see her child. She said she could not live without her. She said, too, she wanted to go away with her husband to some place where they were not known, and where she was sure they could live happily together. She protested that her trial had not been a fair and complete one, and that the jury had been prejudiced against her by the statements published concerning her career. She concluded with the naive remark that the Court might do better if he tried again. SHE BEADS ALL THE TAPERS. After sending off this remarkable epistle Mrs. Hamilton, in her white dressing gown, threw herself into the easy chair with which she had been provided through the kindness of the Sheriff's wife, and read every morning newspaper that contained an account of her conviction. She is supplied with the newspapers every morning. She clips out all the articles referring to herself. When the tim approached for Captain Perry's arrival she dressed herself for his reception, but upon being informed of the postponement of his visit, sbe again donned her wrapper, and settled down to the ueru sal of a novel taken up to her by "Mrs. Johnston. Dr. Ingersoll said after to-day's visit to his interesting patient, that sbe was holding out wonderfully, considering the severe strain to which she has been subjected by the trial. It was only by giving her mor phine, the drug upon the use of which her life almost depends, that she was able to make HEE EEMABKABLE ATPEABANCE of coolness and indifference on the days of the trial and the sentence. Dr. Ingersoll said: I am ciTing Mrs. Hamilton one irram of mor phine every six hours. Ihat is a reduction from the amoun to which sbe has been ac customed. I hardly think sho was In a condi tion to do herself justice on the day of the trial. Sbe ought not to have been convictod, in my opinion. My professional ex amination, made two days after the affray with the nurse, showed more severe injaries than I was permitted to testify to. I believe that if she could see her husband for an hour she would have him again at her feet willing to obev her slichtest wish. 1 believe he loves her. Mrs. Hamilton often speaks in loving terms of the baby, Beatrice. I liaTe never heard her say that tho child was her own. and I don't know that it is, but I believe that she has really be come as mnch attached to It as though it was. Beside taking morphine, Mrs. Hamilton smokes and inhales cigarettes almost con stantly, and little thin, blue streaks of smoke from that dainty weed are often seen issuing from the open attic window when the prisoner sits there reading. HEB LITEKAEY TASTE is characteristic of the woman. She has been permitted to have the unrestricted use of the jail library, but yesterday Bhe re marked to Mrs. Johnson and Dr. Ingersoll: "These books are too wishy-washy. They are good for Sunday schools, but not for a woman like me. Haven't you got any thing around here better than this?" A number of Ouida's novels were found, and Mrs. Hamilton was happy to-day in the possession of "Folle Farine." Sheriff Johnson said to-dav that he did not know when he would take Mrs. Hamilton to Trenton, but thought It would be some time next'week. He is in no hurry to execute this duty, and is evidently waiting for new developments. The problem of Baby Beatrice's future is WI Atw yp" -- -- m, A. j .m. J.L Art ,i. m mmmM jIVS.. kk. .kW. m A.

For the present she will remain in charge of Mrs. Rupp, 'the proprietress of Noll cottage at Atlantio City. She has already received a large sum of money from Hamilton for the child's maintenance. "The mother of that child will never be discovered," said the Sherifi, and he knew what he was talking about. TEDDY TO BE SENATOB. Tonne Theodore Roosevelt on the Carpel to Go to Oar Home of Lords Prom Korih Dakota Why They Talk of Him That Wny. IirECIAL TELEOBAH TO TtU DISPATCH. Bismarck, Dae., September 20. The 'finger of public opinion points with cer tainty to ex-Governor Gilbert A. Pierce as one of the first two United States Senators from North Dakota; hut it wabbles with great uncertainty when it attempts to point toward his Senatorial companion, Enough Legislative candidates have al ready bcn instructed to support Pierce to insure a caucus nomination; but no prefer ences regarding his running mate have yet crystalized into public opinion. Ex-Goyernor N. G. Ordway, of Washing ton, has established a nominal residence in the Red River Valley, and is hopeful; but the political public has quietly been casting about for less antagonistic material. The name.of Theodore Roosevelt was in cidentally mentioned a few days ago, and the idea has taken root and flourished like the No. 1 hard wheat in its native soil. Roosevelt is a reformer, with a big It, and is young and enthusiastic. The young men seem inclined to him, and the older heads find it to be in his iavor that he is not identified with any of the local factions, and has a reputation and fame that would at once serve as a good advertisement lor the new State. It is not generally known that this famous United States Civil Service Commissioner is interested in the politics of the Missouri slope; but such is nevertheless the fact His ranch manager, A. W. Mer rifield, has been nominated by the Democrats ' for the lower House in the Stark county district, aud, owing to a split in the Republican party ot that district, it wonld not be at all surprising if he were elected. As Roosevelt is popular in that section and is a large taxpayer and resides here a good portion of the year, we have a perfect right to claim for him a residenoe in Dakota. ELOPED" WITH A PRINCESS. A Chicago Man. liana Away With a Saraoan Lady of Royal Blood. Minneapolis, September 20. A com pany of natives of the Saraoau Islands opened an engagement at the Dime Museum on Monday morning. The party consisted of 9 men, 1 woman and 1 child. The woman, who was attractive, was about 23 years of ac;e, and claimed to be related to King Malietoa, of the Stmoan Islands. She gave it out that she was a Princess of the royal line, and that her name was Silanti. At the time the King was deposed she went to San Francisco to be educated. There she remained until about three months ago, when she was engaged by an agent to go with some other natives" on an exhibition tour through the country. The company opened in Chicago. While there an American named J. S. Cotterell fell violently in love with Silanti, and fol lowed her to this city, and yesterday eloped with her. They are supposed to have gone to San Francisco, as tne woman has been desirous of returning to her native land, now that Malietoa is again in authority. Before departing last night Silanti said that she did not expecHiairy.her.-Unerican lover. He wasLbnly going to look after'her until she reached California. F0EGED BIS UNCLE'S KAMU.

It has leaked out.that William Tobias, arrested a few days ago in Washington Territory, forged his uncle'a nan e on paper amount ing to over $10,000 in he upper end of this county. Tobias was the proprietor of a store, and not doing a prosperous business, resorted to forgery io mace up for his failure. C. W. Tobias, the uncle, is a farmer and cattle dealer in good circum stances, and money wis easily realized on notes bearing his name. The father of the alleged forger is said to have given a judg ment of nearly ?12,000to the First National Bank of Millersburg, io indemnify it against losses on account of the swindles practiced, but the father contends that he gave the judgment as security for the appearance of his son at a hearing. Young Tobias fled to the West about a year ago. Recently one of his friends, who was inebriated, dropped his name, which resulted in his arrest A true bill was iound against the accused last March.

The negro women are in the movement, and white families are unable to obtain cooks or women to do their laundry work. The negroes re fuse to work on the farms, and many farm ers will be unable to gather their crops un less they can obtain white laborers.

William Yainson, Jonathan Neilson, Perry Donglas and David Edwards, colored soldiers, were brought here to-day charged with the mur der of William Fleming, a colored soldier, a month ago.

A HUSBAND BECOMES A WILD MANIAC after viewing the Crashed Eemalns of His Once Beautiful Wife. Twenty-five dead bodies have been recov ered from the scene oi the Quebec land slide, and many are still believed to be in the ruins. The disaster is a duplicate of one on the same spot many years ago. The sights attending the accident are of the most distressing character. Quebec, September 20. More than 24 hours have elapsed since the terrible land slide at the Point, and many bodies are still believ edtobeintte debris. The site of the landslide of last night is almost identical with that of the one which occurred ill 1841, when eight buildings were crushed and 32 "persons were killed. The houses destroyed last night all Etood on the other side of the roadway, and were not thought to be in danger, but the Immense mass of rook Swept clear across the roadway and over the brick buildings, demolishing them as if they were made of cardboard. The mass of earth and rock moved is roughly sDeakinc. about 600 frontace bv 80 feet in depth. Some of the masses of fallen rock must weigh nearly 20 tons, and there are so many huge, blocks that it makes the work of clearance very difficult It is feared that a large part of the rock adjoin ing the side of the slide will come down, as large crevices have appeared and the rain is still falling and may repeat the opera tions which caused last night's disaster. The people are moving outoi the threat ened houses. THE WOEK OV BESOUE. While the workers were busy clearing away the debris of crumbled buildings, faint groans were heard at Intervals from under huge piles of rocks. The efforts of the volunteers were concentrated to that point, and after three hours' bard work the bleeding body of Joe Kemp was extricated from the mass of rocks. The poor man is in a most pitiable condi tion. Both legs are broken at the knees, the left arm is fractured above the elbow and several ribs are fractured. He cannot life many hours. Two hours later his wife's body was taken out of the wreck. Her head was almost severed from her body. Further away another hideous spectacle was offered to sight the corpse of a young w:man (Mrs. Lauson) who had been ad mired in her lifetime for her beauty. Her bo ly had been crushed almost flat Shortly after viewing her remains her husband be came a raving maniac. It is doubtful if he will recover his reason. ONE JOTPUL BEUNION. A man named Michael Bradley, who had gone almost crazy when told that all bis family had perished in the landslide, dis covered, while working over the wreck of his house, his 6-year-old daughter still alive.

It has beep decided to nse small charges of powder to break up the huge boulder covering the roadway, as it is cer tain that there can be nothing living be neath it. The scene of the terrible disaster is being visited by thousands, who block up the nar row street, and make it a difficult task for any one to move in any direction. There being but one nariw stscet between the rock and the river, there is a complete stoppage of traffic, except by climbing over the de bris. A large force of men are engaged in the work of searching the rains, A TEMPOEABT MOEGUE. The shipping office in the Dominion Government building has been turned Into a temporary morgue, and over 20 bodies are lying in it. It is difficult to identify some of the bodies, so much have they been dis figured and crushed. A complete list of the injured cannot be made up as yet, as they were removed to different hospitals and to friends' houses as soon as they were taken from the ruins. Thousands crowded into the morgue and seized every point inside and outside the building where a glimpse could be had of the bodie3 of the victims. Many women who obtained au entrance had to be re moved in a fainting condition, the mangled bodies being a sight to try the nerves of the strongest men. Among those buried by the rocks are a young couple named Nolan, who were mar ried a few weeks ago. Nolan could have escaped, hut he lost his life in trying to get his wife ont of the house. It is thought that the King's bastion, on the citadel, will have to be removed, as it is now near the edge of the rock, with unsafe crevices in front of it As a precautionary measure, all communication with the bastion has been cut off, and the morning guns will no longer be fired from it FEAES FOE HEE 0EE TEADE. The Quaker Cltv Mlshtlly In Need ofRetnrn Cargoes Now. Philadelphia, September 20. It is feared that Philadelphia's iron ore trade will soon be "a thing of the past," nnless something is done to secure outward cargoes for vessels coming here with ore, and thus avoid the expense and delay of changing ports. English owners of steam and sail vessels have decided to demand higher freights to Philadelphia, owing to the im possibility of getting out-bound cargoes here, although quicker dispatch in discharging cargoes can be had here than in any other port in the united States. Hundreds of steam craft, which are now trading from the well-known iron ore ports of Marbella, Elba, Seriphos, Cartagena, Garrucha and Bilbao to Baltimore, prefer Philadelphia rather than that port, with a run south to Cape Henry and a long Chesa peake Bay route and the disadvantage of in tensely salt water the entire length, while the Delaware river is fresh many miles below the city. The advantage of fresh water is of itself an important item to iron vessels from long voyages. It kills the barnacles and other shellfish which cling to the bottoms on long voyages. The distance to tho furnaces from Phila delphia is less than from other ports, but the cheaper rates of freight induce vessel own ers to go to tbe less favorably situated port, and higher freights to Philadelphia are dut to the small chances oi getting cargoes oue from this city.

The proposed consolidated mortgage can not be authorized without the assistance of preferred stockholders who will exaet their own terms before voting for that meas ure Mr. Villard's share in fioan ciering the company will now ,not be much more important than 'that of other directors; a circumstance which will give him ample time to financier the Northern JPacifio stocks he has bought the last few weeks. He may also, perhaps, be able to give needed time to the liquiiation of the Oregon Transcontinental Company, unless he should be anticipated in that work by some of its stockholders, or by the legal authorities of the State oi Oregon. Now that Mr. Villard has been defeated and dividends upon Northern Pacific pre ferred are not forthcoming at his nod, it is hot improbable that the German investment demand for that stock may" be df a character that will compel the Oregon and Transcon-i tinental Company to rentw-the obligations it now has outstanding to secure the indebt edness Incurred by Viilardism in 1883. HOT THE SAME WAHAMAKEB. The Postmaster General' Brother Beaten Ont of n Cincinnati Contract. ISTZCTAI. TXLXOSLAX TO TOT DtSrATC&l Washington, September 20. When The" Dispatch correspondent drew the attention of Postmaster General Wana maker to the charge made in Cincinnati that the firm of Wanamaker & Brown had received some sort of a "tip" from the De partment which enabled them to underbid the local clothing firms on the contract for letter carriers' uniforms, be said: "In the first place, I have no connection with the firm of Wanamaker & Brown. I began business with them, but sold out my entire interest, five years ago, to my brother. In the second place, the contracts for letter carriers' uniforms are not awarded by the department; tbey are wholly local matters, controlled by the postmaster. My own firm manufactures no clothing; we have only a small department oi our general mercantile establishment devoted to it Now I ask your is it reasonable to suppose that, with a trade of $25,000,000 a year, he would go into this sort of business for the 'sake of makings few dollars more out of poital contracts? Aud if my brother should wish to enter into a competition witn other merchants for any thing which is free to the whole public have I any right to forbid him.or even-to request him to desist, simply because we happen to have the same surname?" "You had heard the charge from Cincin nati already?" he was asked. "I had, and I have later news from it than yon" have. As soon as my brother learned of the existence ofAny.Ceeling about Ian affair herjelte-jaished the contract i So yon may say that even he is entirely out of It now. "Did he turn his contract over to some other party, chosen by himself, or simply withdraw and let it go to the next lowest bidder in the general competition?" "I don't know. All that I can say is that he no longer holds the contract?" DECLINED TO PK0SECUTB. A Perry County1 Ensband Allows Ills Eloping Wife to Escape. ErECIAX.

I will seek; to show that tbey are the expressions of our honest convictions, without anysquiratef; or evasion.

I know what sort of a canvass most ha met hv the Democrats, and that it can be met only by severe, determined work in every assembly district in the State. I believe that the people are ready to support me, set Ofily DimopTstie TVrfalataro.

Ishallappeat to them for sup port, and I shall pledge myself to carry ont after election the pledges made as a canoiaate. I shall not make personal attacks, as some of tbe Republican papers bare been doiaff. bat if the other side does resort to the personal abase there will be blows to give as well as to take. Abuse only helps the man . who Is abused, if the people believe in hie ' honesty. The Republican convention has attempted to eliminate an national issues from the cam paign. It did it because it discovered last year that it was in a minority on tbe question, but on the State issne tbe Democrats are ready to meet them and will show the substantial benefits fehich have been achieved by Demo cratic Governors. From this nonr I shall stand ready for the canvass, and 1 ask you to carry ont an aggressive campaign. We asktbe other side to do the same, and we will leave the re sult to tbe people. I will be elected by the votes ot tbe people, and I hope to leave tho place with tbe same good will that I left before, which has resulted la my unanimous nomina tion.
