note, lmlewl, the cltenrmtauce that
xearly nil the morning papers, except
the New York World, contain reports
of a flat denial of the whole story by
the British Minister.
The World occupies the proud and
lonesome position of having found Sir
Inllan unwilling to talk on the subject.
Jt proceeds, therefore, to reproduce the
ftor's testation with highly florid elab
oration, tjlng a string to It, however,
by adding this final paragraph:

ltferred to must be that vory branolt
which the iirraM, Sun, Tribune ami
other lending papers got hold of, to

denial of the whole businoes.
As we say, however, there Is doubt

NO SUCH SCHEME'
Yesterday's C'Mrric contained the re
I rrntof a ipecial teteeram from Clncln
Kfctl to the New York Timet, giving
hat purported to be the utterances of
South Carolina merchant apropot
f the Federal Elections bill. ThU
Charleston merchant, whoee name Is
baibfutly withheld, undertakes to fore
t ait the policy that will be pursued at
the South in case the Lodge bill should
become a law. He sajs the negro Is to be
boycotted, denied employment, turned
ut to starve, while his place will be filled
by white laborers The Charleston
man declares that the plan is fully or
ganhrod and that It Includes also, a boy
cott against Northern products, meat,
(ornmcal, feedstuff, etc., all of which
are to be raised at home or lraportod
from Europe. He further asserts that
the whole South Is aroused on the sub
ject ami that the application of the em
bargo will be universal and slmultan
Now, weretpectfully, but firmly, pro
claim that this U all bosh of pureat ray
nation. No considerable number of
Southerners are going to do any one of
the thing s mentioned by the Charleston
merchant la Cincinnati, Southern
merchants have not the faintest idea of
buying their goods anywhere except in
tbebacasd cheapest markets, and It
will take a good deal more than the
Lodge Election bill to sevre their
lelatfo&s with the business men of
the greet Northern cities, between
whoa aBd themselves the naort
cardial relations exist. It is quite
posetble that the execution of the Lodge
L1H is the Southern States may lead, to
disorder that will arrest the prosperity
of that section sad thus diminish the

BretWTbJw. and bh iifNiH had a
trlillBg exptrience on a Suhta Fe train,
near Argentine on Sunday with Mr
wt Hon, which with tmWtlMwig; hwl
been shipped from San Efanelseo to
Jfew York. The animals bfcd been
bmneht down from the seal fslftmls In
the Padtre car by the owner Of a zm
ologlcal garden In New York. They
were taken ftom the ship, where tltey
bad been In water, and shipped lnlhree
large wooden cages, well corMtmeted
and strongly rnmnd bv hemp ropes.
The lntehe heat and absence of waftr
proved disastrous for tbe animals. One
of them died- at Dehver. On the trslh
between that point and Kansas City rtrto
of the males went mad and attacked his
mate, killing her Instantly by biting her
bead nearly off. He then howled most
dismally for several hours, and th6 oc
cupants of the car were considerably
frightened. The animals finally quieted
down and gave no further trouble, until
Argentine was reached.
Then he became furious again ami
raising himself on bis four fins used his
tail with such force that he broke the
cage Into pieces and then made an at
tack on Express Messongor Terry, who
jumped on a pile of express matter, but
was quickly driven from that position.
Tbo men at last made their escape
through tbo side door of tho car and
doted It behind them. The seal raged
for five minutes and then dropped dead.
Tho corraW, welching 518 pounds, was
taken to Armour's packing-house and
skinned. Tbo romninlng soal was wnt
crcd hero and shipped on to New York.
CAPTAIN ALLEN'S DEATH.
Snl Knit or a Good Snllor nml nn Kn
Nkw Yonu, July 8. It Is now bc
Hovcd by bis family ond frtonds that
Captain John H. Allen of Brooklyn, a
well-known shlpmastor aud an enter
taining and forclblo writer on raarltlma
topics, Is dead. Captain Allen sailed
December 8, 18S0, from Darion, Ga
with tho ship Brldgowatcr for Queens
town, Ireland. Nothing was hoard of
llio Brldgowatcr from tho tlmo ot bor
sailing until on April 5 wreckage,
consisting of pilch pine timber and a
life buoy with tho noma "Brldgownter"
on It. was found on tho shore nt Achlll
Head, County of Mayo, Ireland.
Tho Infcronco was drawn that tho
ship bad been wrecked, but tho sug
gestion was made that tho crew, or n
part of It, might have been picked tip
by n vessel bound to some distant pOrt,
nnd so the hope sprung up that Captain
Allen would In tlmo bo hoard from.
Now at tho ond of tho sovonth month,
dntlng from tha sailing of the Bridge
water, that hopo has been abtnd-med.

London, July 8. The Timet pub
lishes a Buenos Ayros dispatch under
date of July 7, which says that tho
Uruguayan Legislature remained in
seselon until midnight of July 0. It Is
privately stated that a bill was passed
to be promulgated should tho necessity
for a six mouths' suspension o't
specie payments arise. Replying to
a deputation of merchants who waited
upon him the Minister of Finance
assured them that thu government
did not Intend to resort to a forced cur
rency. Tbe government, be said, was
apprehensive that tbe people might re
ject a paper currency, but it desires to
save tbo national bank by an inter

that In the absence of government or
foreign aid tho bank must go Into
