look to something higher than money

tion 10 the Mclvlnley bill.
"What Is the object nnd design ot
the bill?" he asked. "Manifestly to
raise the taxes so high that tho revenue
will be decreased. They propose to

The result will lie commeiclal Isola

nothing less than coercion."
Mr. llayard denounced as most dan
gerous the discretion vested In the Pres

molasses, coffee, tea and hides when
ever he might think Mich a course Ju3ll
fleu. "This Is the tlrst time." he said, "In
the history of the country that sucU an

to put hi thumb upon the windpipe of

nation of the tendency of the Republi

iuv i. ccviemry sum:
"You saw the other day a certain
novel, written by a distinguished
Russian novelist, prohibited from cir
culation In the malls by some wiseacre
who nasses for a statesman, because this
book did not contain Ideas that squared
with his about matrimony, and because
the people of the United States did not
have sense enough to protect themselves,
but must be protected by a paternal
government. TbU is what you mUU
call a grand maternal government. This
Is a discretion that ought to be lodged
with no one. Here are laws thit sub

the substitution ot Hastings In his

that there Is no earthly hope of n ma

the western counties arc In revolt, and
no amount of money could change the
result. In response to Cameron s ap
peals to turn In for Delamater, Mngce
said It was Impossible even If ho de
sired to, and he Intimated that he did
not desire to sec him elected. He told
Cameron further that Quay, and Quay
alone, was responsible for the state of
affairs Into which the party has been
placed, and that the jig, so far as Dela
mater nnd Quay are concerned, Is up,
nnd that If Cameron wanted to save
himself ho had better cut loose and pid

Pirrsni'ito, Pa . Oet. SJl. Senator J.

remain In Pittsburg for several days,
was summoned awav, and left for
Philadelphia on the limited oxnrcisyes
teiday morning. Some local parties

sav he was sent for to go to the Quaker
city and bring his Influence to liear on
James McManes. and keep him from
openly righting Delamater.
Another repot t Is that Magee con
vinced the Senator that he hid better
keep hands off. Senator Quav and
Senator Cameron did not meet" Tues
day, notwithstanding reports to the
contrary, aud as a result all sorts or
rumors were alloat yesterday. One Is to
the effect that Cameron came here to
size up the flght ami see whether he
would join hands with Quay or Magee.
He Is said to have discovered that
Magee is not righting the Republican
party, but that end of It known as the
Quay faction, and, after seeing that IK-I-amater's
chances for losing Allegheny
County were good and recognizing that
the Legislators about to lie elected were
all friends of Magee, he decided that it
was not necessary for him to hold a talk
with Senator Quay and he decided to
cast his lot with Magee.

that tbe bill providing a noa partisan

the opposite position. Quite a number:

A large portion of the repirt Is taken
up by a letter to President Harrison
Trorn Mr. Foulke In regard to corre
spondence between the latter and Post
master General Wanamaker, who re
fused to give him access to the record
ami Information as to the removals of
postmasters, on the ground that tbe De

public the privilege of Inspecting paper

General (by request), but be would not
allow him to examine the flies of the

that "he had no business to see them,

criminated against him lu giving Infor

of this letter. He made no answer to It.
The committee says "that tbe lists of

velt said to day tliat he did not feel at
liberty to talk on the subject of "State

pose of taking part In the cam
paign, lie had given the nut
ter some consUlcrttlon, but had
not yet reached the point where he
could Intelligently discuss his opinions
and conclusions In regard to the new
phase of the political methods of the
Administration. He would probably
give the public the views of tbe Com
mission on the subject to morrow.
It Is learned, however, that Mr.
Roosevelt has drafted n letter on behalf
of the Commission to the chairmen of
theic "State clubs," In which their at
tention Is called to certain considers
tlons In connection with the existence
In this city of political clubs, which,
they assert, are mnlnlv composed of
members now In the Government De

that both parties have these oranli
tlons and the usual cmirse Is to gel all
the Government employe from a cer
tain State who belong to one polltlc-il
party or association which is then
known by the name of the Slate to
which they belong.
The Commissioner says it is note
worthy that at present the activity In
these associations Is almost confined to
those who ate avowedly Republi
can, whereas they are informed that
tbe dlrict reverse was the case
tinder the last administration; and
that these political clubs do not
dare to openly exist, when the twirly to
which they belong is not dominant.
The letter warns these club that

Hccles election, which transfers the seat
from the Conservatives lo the Gldto

patties. The Interest In the contest was
Intense, ami for several hours last oven
!ng lliousamlsof persons crowded Fleet

the vote. When Ihe news came the
J.lbetal element, which greatly pre
dominated, set tip a tremendous cheer.
which was again and agatn taken up as
the full significance of the victory
would force ltelf upon the minds of
the delighted Liberals. Mr. Itoby. the
Liberal candidate, was favored tmtlt by
the temperance and labor organizations,
having declared himself for an eight
hour law and also for iocil option as to
licensing the sale of intoxicating liquors
and against compensating publicans
at the expense of the rent-payers for
the withdrawal of license. The Irish
vote In the district, about 000 strong,
nlo voted solidly for lloby. The Con
servative candidate. .Mr. I'.gerton. had
on his side the Influence long exercised
by his family and extensive owners of
mines, and was supported by the Church
of Knglaml Temperance Society.
Mr. Gladstone was lo dav Inlet vie wed
In Edinburgh In regard to the great
victory, lie said that he. In common
with every Liberal in England and
Scotland, was delighted with Dieting
nitlctnt tilumph achieved by the pirty
In the election of Mr. llihy. It
could not fall, Mr. Gladstone added,
to Inspire Liberals every where with re
newed hopo for the speedy accession to
power of their parly.
News is received of a horrible out
rage commllteil by three Italian soldiers
upon two young lady tourists visiting
the famous monastery of St. Hernard,
In the Alplue paw of that name. The

seized by the soldiers In the temiiorary
absence of their guide and carried to a
deluded spot, where they were crimi
nally assaulted and left to And their way
out as best tluy could. Their cries
finally attracted attention, and the girls
were taken to tbe Hospice In aa ex
hausted condition, and have since suf
fered terribly from their brutal treat

their assailants, ami the rurUsn have
cotueiptently eseaped detection thus far,
but every possible effort i being made to
hunt them down.

backed by ietlutm e in many respects

staunch Giadsionitn. and the contest
for the rectorship will be waged upon
as a purely political line, nt though the
position were an elective one in which
the I'arliamestary electors could ex
press their preference at tbe polls. Mr.
