the Secretary's plans at every step. It is

man from the Argentine Eepublic The
President has about decided to appoint the

Ky. Senator Farwell and the President
agree to a temporary cessation of hostilities.
"Washington, November 19. The Pan
American Congress is starting out under
great difficulties. The delegates seem to
have met a large stumbling block in the
person of a very fussy old gentleman named
Emanuel Quintana, who is one of the
accredited delegates from the Argen
tine Bepublic Senor Quintana is
an exquisite old gentleman, whose
love of ease is so great that he was
compelled to absent himself from the recent
tour of the Pan-A merican Congress, owing
to the fear that there would be a lack ot
personal comforts be had on a fast run
ning railroad train. Now that the Congress
has fairly got to work. Mr. Quintana is
bound to make his influence felt. He has
to his brother delegates, and if all the propo
sitions he has prepared ready to thrust be
fore the Congress are listened to. the daily
sessions will make little headway.
Yesterday Mr. Quintana threw a mild
bombshell into the meeting of the Congress
when the minutes of the previous meeting of
sir weeks ago, at which Mr. Blaine was
elected President, were read. The minutes
showed that the election was unanimous.
Mr. Quintana caused some embarrassment
by calling attention to the fact that several
delegates were absent from that meeting,
and that therefore the election was not
unanimous. He was promptly sat down
At yesterday's meeting Senor Quintana
again arose and presented the interesting
proposition that the meetings of the Con
gress should be recorded by two secretaries,
one copy to be in English and the other in
Spanish. This proposition was referred to
the Committee on Bales, consisting of Mr.
Romero, of Mexico; Valente, of Brazil;
Quintana, of the Argentine Bepublic; Tres
cott, of the United States of Central
America; Mano, of Ecquador; Alphonzo,
of Chili, and Castellacos, of Salvador.
While this committee were deliberating
upon Mr. Quintana's proposition, he arose
with another which is even more startling
in its natnre, and bids fair to upset
, all the plans laid by Secretary
Blaine and other leading men in
the Congress. This proposition of the
fussy old gentleman was an enlargement of
his plan of the previous day. He proposes
that there be elected two secretaries to the
Congress, and that each of them should be
thoroughly conversant with the English,
French and Spanish languages. This prop
osition was
considering that the State Department
would find itself pretty hard pressed to dis
cover such a lingnist among its diplomatic
The gentleman whom Mr. Blaine has
picked out to be one of the secretaries of this
Congress can speak English fairly well, and
that is the best he can do. There is one
man in the State Department who possibly
could fill the bill with satisfaction. This is
Assistant Secretary Adee. But as he is as
deaf as the traditional doorpost, his name
could not be considered.
The committee now has the busy Mr.
Quintana's plan under advisement, and not
. content with all the changes he had pro
posed up to date, he now has
which he brought forth to-day. This is that
each morning's session, when the minutes of
the preceeding day's meeting are read and
approved, that they shall be signed by
every member of the Congress. As
there are something over 40 dele
gates, this daily procedure might
possibly delay the work of each day's
session. The Committee on Bules was in
session this evening, and the most pressing
work they had before them was the discus
sion .of tie question of how to suppress
The joke of the whole business is that
Senor Quintana can speak no language ex
cept the Spanish.
To be Tendered Colonel Goodloe'a Widow
Other Candidates for the Position of
Collector of Islington How
Goodloe Got It.
"Washington, November 19. It is re
ported to-night on good authority that the
President has made up his mind to appoint
the widow of the late' Colonel Goodloe to
succeed her husband as Collector of Inter
nal Kevenue at Xexington, "Ky. The au
thority quotes President Harrison as saying
this afternoon that he had decided to ap
point Mrs. Goodloe to the position.
A call at the Treasnry Department devel
oped the fact to-day that there was no appli
cation on file there from Mrs. Goodloe, nor
had the President called for the papers in
the case relating to other applicants.
Same of the officials said that
the selection of the widow to succeed her
husband would place the administration in
the light of taking sides in the Goodloe
Swope quarrel. Beside this, they did not
think the office was one which should be
put in charge of a woman.
There are six candidates for the place,
some of whom were candidates before the
appointment of Colonel Goodloe. Then no
other aspirant was considered'itfeonnection
with appointment. The office was simply
tendered to Goodloe, and he accepted it.
Those who were instrumental in securing it
for him were members of the National Com
mittee. The annlicants in the field now are: M. C.
Hutchins, of Maysville; "William Sneed, of
Jfrantrort; ex-Uongressman anomas, oi
"Vanceburg; Thomas McDowell, of Lex
ington, son-in-law of Mrs. Goodloe;
E. B. Blaine, the present Chief
Deputy and Acting Collector, of Lexington;
and a gentleman named Shaw. Mr. Leslie
Combs. Jr., of Lexington, a brother ot Mrs.
Goodloe, is now4n Washington endeavoring
to do what he can to secure bis sister's ap
pointment. TO BE PERSECUTED.
The Civil Service Commission Leaves the
Old Dominion League la the Presi
dent's Hands Prosecution of
All the Alleged Offend
ers Recommended.
"Washington, November 19. The Civil
Service Commission to-day laid before the
President, with the recommendation.it is un
derstood,that the offenders be prosecuted, its
report on the Old Dominion Republican
League of Virginia for violation of the civil
service law in soliciting contributions for
political puposes among the clerks of the
Government departments.
The circular which was sent out by the
Old Dominion Bepublican League was
signed by C. A, Newton, as President,
and Brooke Smith as Secretary. Among
the officers of the League whose
names were printed on the circular were
those of J. J. "Visser, an employe of the
Government Printing office, and "W. C.
Elam, a Chief of Division in the General
Land Office.
All the evidence in the case collected by
the Civil Service Commission, which is
very voluminous, also accompanied
the letter of recommendation to the
President The Commissioners, it
is said, are confident of having
made out a good case acainst the acensed,
and it now rests with the President to direct,
in his judgment, the prosecution by the
Attorney General, to whom the recommend
ations and evidence in the natural order of
business will go.
This is the first recommendation for prose
cution of this character made by the Com
mission. The Civil Service Commission also
handed the President their annual report for
the current fiscal year.
Temporary Trace Patched Up Between Sir.
Farwell and the President.
"Washington, November 19, For the
past three or four weeks Illinois politicians
have been considerably stirred up over the
impending war between the President and
Senator Farwell regarding the appoint
ment of a Collector of Customs and other
officials at Chicaro-v. The Senator
.arrived4n "Wasblngtofi a Week or more ago,
ana nas since been engaged in preparing for
an attack upon the White House. After a
conference with the other Illinois Senators,
Mr. Cullom, and members of the
House lrom Illinois, it was given out
that if Farwell's man Campbell was
not appointed Collector, war should be de
clared by the two Senators against the ad
ministration. To-day the much-talked-ot
interview between Mr. Harrison and Mr.
Farwell took place, and resulted in
a cessation of hostilities, ior the present, at
least. The threatened declaration of war
was not made, but the Senator plainly in
timated that lie did not intend to back
down from the position he had taken in the
The conversation lasted for an hour and
a half, and in the meantime all other busi
ness at the Executive Mansion was sus
pended. Half a dozen members of Con
gress and other distinguished personages
waited in the ante-room impatiently, and
were compelled to leave without seeing the
President, as the Illinois Senator remained
until 12 o'clock, and then the Cabinet offi
cials arrived for tbe regular Tues
day meeting. "When Mr. Farwell came out
from the President's library it was learned
that a suspension of hostilities had been
effected until a further conference can be
held. Judging from that, the Senator said
privately, it looks as if he would win the
fight and secure tbe appointment of his
Very Slim Prospect of Lampion Becoming
Ohio's Lieutenant Governor.
Columbus, O., November 19. James E.
Neal, Chairman of the Democratic State
Executive Committee, arrived in the city to
night, accompanied by Governor-elect
Campbell. Other members of the committee
are also present, and they will hold a meet
ing to-morrow to consider the question of a
contest by Mr. Marquis for Lieutenant Gov
ernor. Mr. Marquis was here about all last
week, and learned what he could in regard to
the contest between himself and Mr. Lamp
son for the office, and seemed to be satisfied
that Lampson had been elected although it
was by a small plurality. Tbe committee
was greatly disappointed over the apparent
lack of interest which he manilested in re
gard to the position, and they will endeavor
to strengthen him by their action to-morrow,
to go ahead with the contest.
There is very little doubt that Mr. Lamp
son will be relieved at tbe proper time from
performing the duties of Lieutenant Gover
nor, as his services are not wanted by the
Democratic Senate, and they have the pass
ing upon the question as to whether he
shall remain. There are a good many Re
publicans wbo are diappointed,as they had
hoped that Lampson would be allowed to
occupy the position to which he had been
elected, so that he would not be up for vin
dication in the next two years.
The Snsqnefaanna and the Schnyllrill Again
Over Their Banks.
Beading, Pa., November 19. The rain
of the past 36 hours has again caused a rise
in the Schuylkill, and the river has over
flowed its banks. The Maiden creek,
Tulphocken, Monacacy and other trib
utaries are greatly swollen. The storm has
been very severe and many of the streets ot
the City are under water, and cellars in
different sections have been flooded.
A dispatch from Sunbury, Pa., says the
Susquehanna river has been swollen to enor
mous proportions by the late rains, and
great damage is reported from various towns'
along its,course. Many bridges have been
swept away.

President Towoe, or the Mechanical Engl
necrs' Society, Bays We Can't Havo B
World's Fair la 1S92 More Time -
Necessary to Get One Beady
for the World to See.
New Yoke, November 19. The Ameri
can Society of Mechanical Engineers, in
session at the Academy of Musio this morn
ing, listened to the address of its President,
B. H. Towne, and was told among other
things, that its duty was to tell everybody
that we can't have a "World's Fair in 1892,
because there is not time to get up a fitting
one, and that it should be postponed Tor one
or possibly two years. He said:
A World's Fair here, to bo fitting for the oc
casion and the people, must be an event with
out precedent in the world. This is no easy
task, especially alter the French Exposition
just ended. It may be possible to equal the
achievements of the Frenchmen, but it will be
impossible to exceed them. Our fair, if held
under the rijht conditions, will reqnlre 85, 80,
and perhaps 100 acres under root, and Its at
tendance will be from 30,000,000 to 40,000,000.
We haven't realized yet tbe scope of what we
are undertaking. It must bo an international
affair, and that will settle the question of loca
tion. A big lair can be created at Chicago, or
St. Louis, or even at Washington, but it is a
grave question whether such a fair could be
made International. To foreigners. New York
is the United States, to an unlortunate extent,
and we cannot teach them better.
It is the dntv of the American Soeifitv of
Mechanical Engineers to warn the public that-
mis worn: cannot do done Dy itsa; we must
have more time. It is possible to hold an ex
hibition in New York, 6r Chicago, or St. Louis
in 1S92, and hare it huge and monstrous and
discreditable: bat it cannot be worthy of us,
especially in its artistic features if it is held in
1892, and in this matter sentiment should not
stand in tbe way of success.
The session to-day was the first business
session of the meeting. There were present
about 100 members, including representa
tives from mechanical institutions and
schools of all sorts in all parts of the coun
try. The officers elected were: President,
Oberlin Smith, of Bridgeton, N. J.; Treas
urer, William H. Wiley, of New York;
Yice Presidents (to serve two years), Joel
Sharp, of Salem, O.; George "W. "Weeks, of
Clinton, Mass.; Prof. DeVolson Wood, of
Stevens Institute; Carleton W. Nason, of
New York, and H. H. Westinghouse, of
A Tie-Up la Brooklyn That Lasted Only a
Few Hoars.
New Yoke, November 19. There was a
tie-up on the lines of the Atlantic Avenue
Railroad, Brooklyn, this morning, but It
lasted only a few hours. Although the
strike was ordered by the Executive Com
mittee of D. A. 75, 'Knights of Labor, a
large majority of the drivers and con
ductors seem either to have been op
posed to it or to have lost heart
when matters came to an issue. The direct
trouble was in the discharge of two conduc
tors and six drivers by President William
Richardson, because they belonged to a
labor organization. Mr. Richardson ad
mitted that they had discharged their duties
in a satisfactory way. His reason given to
the men, was that he considered it for the
best interests of the company that other
men should take their places.
There are nearly 800 employes on the
eight lines operated by the company. The
ordering of a strike was a surprise to a ma
jority of the employes, but all of them
seemed at first inclined to obey the summons
to stop work. At 6 o'clock police reserves
numbering more than 500 were on duty at
the various stables or along the route." At
12 o'clock almost all of the cars were run
ning as usual. Not more than 20or 30 men,
all told, out of the 800 employes, had failed
to report for duty before 1 o'clock.
For the Election of One of the Senators
From North Dakota.
Bisjiaeck, Dak., November 19. Gil
bert A. Pierce was made the unanimous
choice of the Bepublican caucus for United
States Senator. The first vote gave him 53
to 18, and his nomination was made unani
mous amid wild enthusiasm. He was es
corted into the hall and thanked the con
vention in a short speech.
Balloting for the second Senator was then
proceeded with, and two ballots were
taken without result, the last vote standing
as follows: M. N. Johnson, 27; P. J. Mo
Comb, 14; N. G. Ordway, 10; "Walter Muir,
8; George H. Walsh, 11; C. A. M. Spencer.
1; W. C. Plummer, 7; George H. Winship,
2. The caucus adjourned and balloting
will probably not be resumed for several
days. On the motion to adjourn, which
was expected to be defeated by the Johnson
and "McComb men, the vote stood 40 ayes to
34 nays and the prediction is made that
Johnson cannot get sufficient strength to
win. The fight for the second Senatorship
will be exciting.
Succeeds In Defying n Posse of Citizens and
Starting a War.
Mapleton. Minn., November 19. The
village of Easton, 12 miles south of here, is
in a state of great excitement. For some
time there has been a feud between the
citizens and a man named Au
gust Barishol, which culminated to-day
when the constable and a posse of citizens
attempted to arrest the old man and bis son
and hired man for carrying concealed
weapons. They succeeded in securing the
last two, but the old man escaped and re
treated to his farm, keeping the posse at bay
with a revolver. War was declared and
volunteers have been asked for.
The (rouble arose through numerous fam
ily quarrels in the Barishol household, the
old man refusing to make certain settle
ments upon his wife when he went to Mil
waukee through a newspaperadvertisement.
Lawsuits have been brought and dismissed;
citizens have taken sides; revolvers bought,
threats made and the town patrolled nights
until to-day the affair culminated as above.

Bio De Janeieo, November 19. The
manifesto of the Bepublican Government of
Brazil is as follows:
To Ait Citizens: The army and navy and
the provinces have now decreed the fall of the
Imperial dynasty and tho suppression of the
monarchial system. This patriotic revolution
baa been followed by the formation of a pro
visional Government, whose first mission is to
procure order and the rights of the citizens.
The formation of this Government until a
definite Government has been named, has been
made with full regard to the most competent
material. The Government is simply compose",
of temporary agents, who will govern i ana
maintain peace, liberty, fraternity and order.
The attributes and extraordinary faculties
Invested are for the defense and integrity of
the country and the preservation of public
order. The provisional Government promises
to use all means in its power to guarantee se
curity of life and property to all the
inhabitants of Brazil, native and
foreign, and respect for individual
political opinions, excepting tho exigent modi
fications necessary for the good of the coun
try. The armv and navy, the ordinary func
tions of the .Department ot Justice, the cml
and milttary administrations, will continue
under their existing organizations, and respect
for those holding possession will bo main
mined The Senate and State Council are abolished,
and the Chamber of Deputies is dissolved. The
Provisional Government recognizes and ac
knowledges all national compromises under the
late Government and all agreements with lor-ei-n
powers. The public debt, internal and ex
ternal, "will be respected; also all existing con
tracts and obligations legally made.

All tho Keports From Brazil Are of a
Peaceful Natnre -Tho New Bepublic
Will be Governed Like
tho United States.
"Washington, November 19. Dr. Val
ente, the Brazilian Minister, to-night re
ceived the following telegrams by way of
The Brazilian Bank ot Bio telegraphs the
Brazilian Bank of London: "Provisional Gov
ernment appears to have inspired confidence.
Perfect quiet reigns. Republic accepted by
Kio and the Northern and Southern provinces.
Everything quiet. General opinion is that tho
Bepublic is quite secure. Exchange is firm."
The Minister said that he thought the
Hamburg report of bloodshed was nonsense.
These two telegrams were later in date, and
were direct contradictions of the report of
fighting in the streets. Dr. Valente was
asked to explain how it was possible that
such a change of government would take
place without any serious trouble between
the supporters ot each party. He said that
it was due to the fact that the Brazilians
were extremely liberal and tolerant. Any
one could express openly his views on poli
tics or religion, and no one would take
offense. Bepublicans and Monarchists were
friendlv. and it did not shock either side to
hear criticisms passed. The people were
peaceable, and nobody wanted to fight.
When people were educated up to this
point of toleration, changes of government
might be bloodless. The Emperor Dom
Pedro was too just a man and had too much
horror of bloodshed to encourage fighting.
The Minister was quite well satisfied that
there would not be any bloodshed.
"Why should there be," said he, "the
personal rights of all persons are respected.
The manifesto which you have just read
me is very liberal. The provisional Gov
ernment will maintain order until a new
election takes place, when the voters can
decide the matter."
He did not think there 'Would be any dis
integration of the Brazilian territory. The
provinces had generally accepted the Be
public, which would now be governed very
much like this country. Heretofore . the
provinces had been partly independent and
partly under the direction of the central
Government, Now, each province would
direct its own local affairs, while the Gen
eral Government, in which all the provinces
would have a voice, would direct national
"Hook upon the Bepublic," added the
Minister, "as an accomplished fact."
The State Department has instructed our
representative at Bio de Janeiro to keep it
well informed of affairs in Brazil, and is
closely watching the progress of events. No
instructions have yet been sent as to recog
nition of the new Government There is
said to be no exactly analogous case to the
present one upon which to base a precedent
for official action. It may be that Brazilian
affairs will adjust themselves so as to raise
no question of the proper diplomatic course
to be pursued. Fortunately the situation is
uncomplicated by any bloodshed or damage
to American interests.

ulate. He had read the cable from Paris",
received from Brazil via Hamburg, an
nouncing trouble between the ex-Emperor's
followers and the revolutionists, and that a
fight was going on in the streets of Bio
Janeiro with the hope of restoring
the Emperor. Mr. Bedman could not
reconcile the message with the
announcement that a rigorous censorship of
all cables sent out from Brazil was in force.
Still, he thought it might be an inkling ot
the true situation. He said that the mes
sage could have been sent from one of the prov
inces. But Mr. Bedman added that a good
manv speculators hero and in Europe had a
special interest in promoting news of dis
cord in Brazil, and with that knowledge he
was not Inclined to give much credence to
the Paris-Hamburg-Brazil cable.
Cables to Charies B. Flint announced an
advance in exchange and rubber, and Mr.
Flint construed the advance in exchange to
mean that Brazilian finances were not likely
to be disturbed by the change of Govern
ment. J Lawrence McKeever had a cable
saying that the Bepublic was an assured
fact, and that all of the provinces had come
in. Wall street had this from London:
"The news from Bio is favorable, and good
order is preserved. In consequence Bra
zilian bonds improved fractionally. Free
communication with Bio by cable is not yet
restored, and a strict censorship is known to
be exercised at both ends' On the Coffee
Exchange there was a larger business,
amounting to sales of 93,750 Dags. Prices
drifted downward.
The New Jersey Court of Appeals Decides a
Case la Favor of tbe Poverty Aboil-

Extension Is Set Aside by
the Chief Justice.
Teenion, N. J., November 19. A deci
sion was rendered to-day by Chief Justice
Beasley, in the Court of Errors and Ap
peals, in the matter of the will of George
Hutchins, who died a few years ago, leaving
nearly all his estate, valued at between $20,
000 to $30,000, to Henry George for the dis
seminationofhisworkss,especially "Progress
and Poverty." Hutchins' widow filed abill
in chancery to prevent the execution of the
trust. vice Chancellor Bird decided
against George. He took the ground that a
trust created for such a pupose was under
the immediate control of a court, and no
court would permit a book setting at de
fiance the existing laws to be circulated
under its jurisdiction and scrutiny. "Prog
ress and Poverty" was a book of this class.
The decision was appealed from, and Chief
Justice Beasley's decision to-day was the
The Court, after defining Mr. George's
doctrines and quoting the Vice Chancellor's
decision and views, announced that his con
clusions were opposite to those, arrived at by
the court. The Chief Justice says he can
not perceive for what reason it is incompati
ble with the judicial position to aid in the
circulation of the works of a learned and in
genious man, putting under examination
and discussion any part of the legal system.
He adds:
It Is evident that the decision of the Vice
Chancellor in adding a class of writings to the
catalogue of those proscribed as manifestly
violating the law. or corrupting morals and re
ligion, does not -harmonize with any of tbe ad
judged cases. If the principles urged in this
case were adopted It would be productive of
serious mischief. It may well be doubted
whether it wonld not be altogether impractica
ble, under such an extension, to disseminate,
by means of a charitable use, the works of any
of-the leading political economists, for none
can be found that does not make war upon
some parts of every legal system as It now sub.

the turning loose ot the horses caused a panic
among the bystanders while the people
who had just come out of tbe Odd Fellows'
Hall, where a ball had been in progress,
were in danger of being trampled to death.
After the Monongahela Water Company
had been notified by telephone or postal card
that more pressure was needed, the fire was
got under control about 2:30 a. m. Mr.

Why a New Tork Banker Takes Little
Stock io a Proposed Policy.
New Yobk, November 19. President H.
W. Cannon, of the Chase National Bank,
in discussing to-day tbe possibility, as well
as the effect of the talked-of withdrawal of
Government funds from the depository
banks, said:
Even if the Secretary of tho Treasnry should
conclude to recall tbe foil amount of the In
crease which was made in these deposits by bis
predecessor. Secretary Fairchild, the total
amount so to be withdrawn would not exceed
$25,000,000, as on Juno SO, 1S37, the amount de
posited to the credit of the United 8tates and
the Federal disbursing officers in the various
banks, to enable the Government to properly
conduct its business, was 123,310,000. It was
not until June, 1SS7, that Secretary Fairchild
began to increase those deposits, and prior to
that time they have run from fiaOOO.OOOto
$23,000,000. On November, this year, the aggre
gate was H7,35,00a. But, as the business ot the
Government is steadily increasing, the average
amount necessary to bo kept on deposit for the
use of tho Government and its disbursing of
ficers must bo larger. Again, tbe policy here
tofore pursued has been to buy tbe bonds from
national depositories and no money would In
fact be withdrawn from circulation; but as tbe
difference between the Secretary's price of 127
and the amount deposited, whfeb is 110, Is 17
per cent In favor of the banks owning the
bonds, there would be that amount additional
in funds released for the public needs.
There is no reason whatever to suppose that
the Secretary of the Treasury would be other
wise than glad to purchase all the bonds de
posited to secure public moneys. Personally. I
doubt very much whether the Secretary will
do anything until after January L, as he Is not
responsible for this state of affairs, and I
think he would not, in the present condition of
tbe money market, attempt to compel the
banks to sell their bonds, but would probably
wait until money was easier, and the matter
would produce little or no confusion.
The Bodies of Three Sailors Cast Ashoro by
the Waves.
Lonq BEANCH, N. J., November 19. A
violent northeast storm has been raging here
for 36 hours. The bluff between the Ocean
Hotel and the Mansion House has been
slightly damaged by the waves, while the
great crevasse above the Hotel Brighton has
been extended to within 21 feet of the west
side of Ocean avenue. Many more such
storms will totally ruin that thftroughfare,
and many anticipate that unless jetties are
at once built the avenue will in a year or so
have to be abandoned.
Superintendent Havens, of the Life Sav
ing Service, reports that near the Manto
loking station tbe bodies of two sailors were
cast np bv the sea. while a third was found

The Annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet
Makes an Attempt to
Justice Killer, Secretary XMe and Many Others
Eespmxl to Toasts.
At the banquet of the New York Chamber
of Commerce last night, the leading ad
dress contained a statement of the ad
vantages of the metropolis for the fair of
1892. Ex-President Cleveland, in respond
ing to a toast, spoke in favor of business
men taking a more prominent part in the
Government. A number of other speeches
were made.
New Yobk, November 19. The Cham
ber of Comrdcrce gave its one hundred and
twenty-first annual banquet at Delmonico's
to-nieht. President Smith had on his right
ex-President Cleveland, and on his left
Hon. John "W. Noble. Others at the tables
were Hon. Samuel F. Miller, General Sher
man. Channcey M. Depew, Hon. William
McKinley, Jr.. Carl Schurr, General O. O.
Howard, Hon. Edward J. Phelps, Erank
Hiscock, Boswell P. Flower, Horace and
Henry Villard.
"When the cigars had been lighted, Presi

referring to our commercial interests, he
To have an International Exposition In the
United States in 1SS2 is an economic and politi
cal necessity political, not in its party sense,
but in its broad and general -meaning. Intelli
gent foreigners regard the United States as
producing In the main
with Jllttle skill In the production or manu
facture of the higher class of the world's
necessities and luxuries. We are known for
our cotton, grains, petroleum, provisions, steel
rails, sewing ana reaping machines, steamers'
machinery. Few in Europe know that of plain
silks we are the second manufacturing country
in the world, and In our specialty of plain
colors in thi9 fabric, we are quite equal to the
best productions of Lyons, We are the largest
carpet manufacturers, and we did not show a
piece of silk or carpet, this year, in Paris.
Away from the seaboard In our country an
exposition would bare little sympathy from
abroad. To insure its success with f orelcn ex
hibitors it must be located in this city. Of this
lam convinced by recent intercourse with
prominent business men in Europe. Tbe in
fluence of such successful exposition in New
York would radiate to tbe lakes, to the gulf
and the Atlantic to the Golden Gate.
The first toast, "The President of the
United States." was drunk in silence. The
second toast, "Our honorary members," was
responded 'to by ex-President Cleveland.
After thanking the Chamber of Commerce
for the honor it had conferred upon him in
making him an honorary member, he said
that the business of a country was its life
blood. Those who understood its laws and
their operation were better able io perform
their duty as citizens than they otherwise
A good government was best measured by
business tests. Hence the greater the num
ber of business men who are engaged ia ad-
jninistering the; aSairs, of state .the. greater
-will be U efficiency oi we government.
There should bo more business men in oar
national administrations. Mr. Cleveland
stated that there was an abundance of good!
material available wnicn was now going to
waste. Many of the evils of public life
would, in his opinion, speedily disappear if
business men would take greater interest in
public affairs.
Mr. Cleveland said that there had been a
great deal of discussion lately over the
Question, "What shall we do with our ex
Presidents?" He hoped that the country
would not take the advice of an Illinois ed
itor who recommended that they should be
shot. He suggested that the best way of
disposing of them is to let them alone and
give them a chance to earn their daily
bread in peace.
Edward J. Phelps, ex-Minister to En
gland, responded to the toast "Commerce
the ally of good government, the offspring
of national prosperity."
While speaking to "The Judiciary" Hon.
Samuel E. Miller, of the United States Su
preme Court, said that the separation of the
powers of government is not as perfect as it
might be. The Senate partakes in the
functions of the Executive by the require
ment of its assent to his appointments to
office. It entrenches upon the judicial
function by being the constitutional body to
try impeachment oi tne omcers oi govern
ment The Judicary has asserted and maintained
its power with a moderationand a discretion
which have secured for it up to the present
hour the confidence and the respect of the
American people. In closing Jndge Miller
said he had known a great man 'whose ser
vice of eight or nine years on the bench did
not detract irom his high Character as a
statesman, but it might be doubted if the
reputation which he had leftas Chief Justice
wonld not stand higher to-day with his
countrymen, if his fondness for political life
had been less and satisfaction with his
judicial position greater.
The toast, "The Mississippi; ItsBelations
to Ocean Commerce," was responded to by
Secretary Noble, wbo made an earnest
speech in favor of the development of that
great river as a commercial highway.
Tho Greatest Accidental Discovery Ever
Blade la Anthracite Developraeatm.
rsrxcm. telio-liu to tux piariTcn.1
PorxsniiiiE, November 19. The most
important event occurring in the coal
regions of Pennsylvania, was the ac
cidental discovery of a "find,"
just made, in the extensive colliery
of Lawrence & Brown, at Mahoney
Plane. The men were running a drift
about 440 yards down, when they suddenly
and unexpectedly struck a vein of pure coal,
containing several million tons.
The "find" will go on record as one of the
greatest accidental discoveries of a coal vein
which has ever occurred in the history of
anthracite developments. The vein is over
200 feet thick and correspondingly wide.
A Tonne Jewelry Thief Gets the Extreme
Penalty of tbe Law.
New Yobk, November 19. Samuel Lob
ley, the alert-looking, well-dressed young
thief who preyed upon a number of jewelers
in this city in 1883 and flew to Canada,
pleaded guilty in the General Sessions
Court to-day of stealing $2,500 worth of dia
monds from Alfred H. Smith & Co., of 184
Broadway, in June, 1883. "Can I say a
word. Judge, before you sentence me?"
asked Lobley. "Yon can," replied theBe
corder. "I pleaded guilty. Judge," Lobley
said, "to throw myself on the mercy of the
Court. I served four years for that Smith
matter in another county."
This was a lie. The .Recorder gave him
ten vears, the extreme penalty, He has

the Electricity Necessary
for Propulsion.
Atlanta, November 19. The most
dazzling railroad scheme in years came to
light here to-day. E. C. Machen, known as
"Magio Machen," the man who built the
Covington and Macon Bailroad 10 miles
on a capital oi a side of bacon and a. box of
crackers, is in charge of a scheme to build
an electric standard-gauge railroad from
Atlanta io the sea, at or near Savannah.
"Work has begun on a road between Eaton
ton and Machen, a distance of 17J4 miles.
Electricity will be first tested. It it works
well it will be applied to the whole line of
150 miles. The capitalists backin&Hachen
are New York, Philadelphia and Chicago
parties, who believe in electricity for rail
roads and have ample means to test it
This route was selected because of its rich
environments and immense water power
with which to generate electricity on the
Ocmalgee, Little river, South river and
other streams on the route. Machen esti
mates the water power at 65,000 horse. This,
it is thought, will generate electricity enough
to move all trains 'that can run over the
road. The construction will bo such that
ordinary locomotives can be used in an
emergency, and the road will have steam
equipment as a reserve power. It has not
been decided 'whether batteries or overhead
wires will be used.' Machen goes to New
York in a few days, to confer with electrical
experts who claim to have solved the prob
lem of transportation by electricity.
Machen does not disclose his backers'
names, but it is thought they are men who
have backed him In the Covington and
Macon road.
No Decisions Hondered, Bat Several Cases
Taken Under Advisement.
Habbisbitbo, November 19. Among
the cases heard by the Board of Pardons to
day were those of S. P. Sweitzer, Abraham
Shnltz and Jesse Baughman, of Somerset
county, who were convicted of selling
liquor without license and sentenced to pay
a fine of $500 each and undergo an imprison
ment of three months. The applicants for
pardon, who were represented by General
William H. Koontz, did a small distilling
business, by advice of counsel, who, with
Judge Mcllvaine, interpreted the law of
1887 not to repeal acts permitting this busi
ness without requiring a license to be seenred
from the Court. The Supreme Court has
since rendered a decision in conflict with
this view. A strong appeal was made for
the remission of the imprisonment and fine
because of the alleged absence ot any in
tention to violate the law. The cases were
held under advisement.
The application of Christian Burkhart, of
Allegheny county, sentenced July 16, 1887,
to the penitentiary for ten yean, for murder
in the second degree, was withdrawn atthe
request of "W. L Moore, by telegraph, and
the papers will be returned to Mr. Moore,
the prisoner's counsel. John Eobb was

over the matter-ef wages. Sanday lt the
climax was reached, when the Knights' of
Labor here helda.largely attended meeting,
and determined to send a committee of their
number to New York, to hold an interview
with railroad officials. This committee
went to New York yesterday, and announced
the cause of their trouble, which is
that they are allowed no pay for
time lost in lying idle with trains
for six or eight hours outside the West Al
bany freight yard. The company gave no
satisfactory reply and it has therefore been
decided to strike on Thursday if no favor
able terms are offered by the company to
morrow. This movement takes in the conductors
and trainmen, as well as engineers and fire
men. They claim to have messages from
the Union Pacific employes, and other West
ern roads approving their action and prom
ising aid. The railroad company will prob
ably resist, as order; have been received ut

Governor Wilson Will Call a Special Ses
sion of the Legislature.
Wheeling, November 19. It has leaked
out that acting Governor Wilson has pre
pared a call for a special session ot the
Legislature to convene on January 15. He
has also prepared a bill to establish the
Australian system of voting in the State,
with what he considers some improvements,
which is to be introduced by one of his
friends, and his call will embrace this as
one of the matters to be acted upon, together
with several others, chiefly of local import
ance, in addition to the settlement of the
Gubernatorial question. The call will be
made public in a few days. There has been
considerable complaint throughout the
State, on account of the Governor's delay in
this matter. Over a year has passed since
the election for Governor and the contest
that ensned has not yet been settled.
The committee appointed by the Legisla
ture, was in session nealy all summer and
adjourned early in September, after com
pleting its investigations. It has been
claimed for the Governor, that he has been
waiting on the report of the committee to
call the special session, but members of the
committee hold that such a course is not
necessary, because the committee is not
obliged to report to the Governor.
The Knights of Labor Opposed to a Radical
Eight-Hour Movement.
Atlanta, November 19. The session of
the Knights of Labor was devoted to a dis
cussion of the eight-hour question.
Besolutions were adopted to the effect
that the matter ot short hours
should be regulated by the demand. The
effect of this is to leave it with tbe local as
semblies to get as short hours as is consist
ent with the different kinds of work.
The General Assembly favors a gradual
reduction, but it is opposed to any radical
movement, such as. a general strike ior the
purpose of securing an. eight-hour day.
