better accommodation of our customers, as well as
giving us ample room to place and display the goods

Washington Notes, front our own Corre
Washington, May 13th. — Saturday
evening has been assigned by the House of
Representatives for the consideration of bills
reported by the Committee on Education and
Labor. The members of that committee held
a conference to-day, for the purpose of deter
mining the order in which its various meas
ures shall be called up from the calendar for
action in case the committee actually obtains
the day, it being well understood that all spe
cial assignments of this sort are liable to be
set aside towards the close of the session in
favor of the appropriation bills, etc. The
committee, after come discussion, decided that
it would be impracticable, or worse than use
less, to attempt to pass the Chinese immigra
tion bill at the present time, in view of
the recent appointment of the Commission to
negotiate a treaty on that subject, and
it was therefore arranged that if the com
mittee obtains the floor on Saturday the
House shall be asked to make the 15-passen
ger bill a special order for the first Tuesday
of next December, which will be the next
day after the commencement of the session.
The committee are of the opinion that by
that time it will be clearly manifest whether
or not the diplomatic agencies now provided
for the solution of the Chinese problem will
have rendered further action at the hands of
Congress unnecessary. If the Commission
shall then have failed to accomplish the de
sired result the pending bill will be urged for
immediate passage, with the chances of suc
cess incomparably greater than could be
hoped for at the present time, while both
House and Senate are far from giving their
sanction to the creation of a Commission ap
pointed for the sole purpose . of dealing with
the same subject.
The Secretary of War sent to the Senate
to-day a copy of the report of Lieutenant-
Colonel C. S. Stewart, upon an examination
of Trinidad harbor, made in compliance with
the river and harbor law of March 3, 1879.
Colonel Stevenson says the examination made
last July developed that no change in the
depth of water or in the character of the ma
terial of Trinidad harbor appeared to have
taken place since the United States coast
survey was made in 187-!. It was thought,
therefore, that a complete new survey was
not needed. He says the harbor is exposed to
a ' _i.avy swell from the south and west in
heavy southerly weather, and if this were cut
off the anchorage would be quite se
cure at all times. As it now is, it
forms a good shelter against summer
northwest winds. The approaches are free
from hidden dangers, and the rocks to the
west of the head are close in shore and can
be easily avoidea. There are but few sunken
rocks in the harbor. The head is a good land
mark, and the holding ground is equal to that
at most of the anchorages on the coast.
"Thee," the Colonel says, "are all ths
favorable point?, and those interested in this
place are desirous to have it made the site of
an artificial harbor by the construction of a
breakwater from the head to Pilot Rock."
He remarks that the expense of such a work
would be altogether out of proportion to the
amount of commerce to be benefited, if that
of Trinidad alone was to be considered.
Colonel Stewart estimates the total cost of
constructing the breakwater at $5,293,227.
This amount, be it noticed, is more than
double the estimate by Colonel Williamson
in his recent minority report on the subject
of the selection of a site for the proposed
Pacific coast harbor of refuge.
Representative Horace Davis appeared be
f ire tl_e House Committee on Appropriations
to-day and urged the insertion of an item in
the sundry civil appropriation bill to reim
burse the city of San Francisco for about
Si'3.ooo expended in street improvements in
front of Federal property.
The Star this evening publishes the Presi
dential views of Judge Hastings and Mr.
Mclloon, whom it describes as two very prom
inent Democrats from California, and who
are ' quoted as saying: " Judge Field can
carry California by 10,000 majority against
any candidate the Republicans can name.
California is Democratic when the party is
united, and it would be united with a will on
Field. The coast is enthusiastic for him."
They recount his distinguished services in
shaping the present mining laws and estab
lishing the beneficent principles of land juris
prudence, etc., in California, eulogize his Su
preme Court opinions on great constitutional
questions, and predict that California will
send a delegation to Cincinnati who, al
though uninstructed, will vote for his nom
ination as President.
Senator Don Cameron has returned from
his visit to Philadelphia, and was in his seat
to-day. He says the reports of an extensive
revolt in the Pennsylvania delegation to Chi
cago are not true ; that he has investigated
the affair thoroughly, and that he is confident
the delegation will vote as instructed for
Grant ; that a few of the delegates— not over
half a dozen may disregard the instructions
and vote for Blame, but the revolt will not
go beyond that. He believes Grant will get
them all. His report of the result of his trip
to the other Grant leaders was, " Everything
is satisfactory to Pennsylvania."
WEST VIRGINIA— REPUBLICAN.
Wheeling, May 13th.— evening the
first two districts appointed Blame delegates
to Chicago. In the third the majority report
was in favor of Sherman delegates, and the
minority for ' Blame. A hot discussion en
sued, in the course of which Mr. Dye asserted
that ; the Third District would not vote for
Blame at Chicago, and if smothered here, it
would send a delegation to Chicago and de
mand recognition from the National Conven
tion. , This caused ; much excitement. The
minority, report was finally adopted. . The
delegates at large are W. .1. Burley, Samuel
P. McCormick, John H. Riley and A. W.
Campbell. •'. The : . whole ' delegation was '- in
structed for Blame. I The delegates were also
instructed to support General Nathan Goff,
Jr., of this | State, as a candidate for Vice-
President. . .
Detroit, May 13th.— Yesterday afternoon
resolutions were adopted . that the choice of
the Republicans of Michigan for President is
Blame, and that the delegates are requested
to use all proper means to secure his nomina
tion. The resolutions favor Thomas B. Ferry
for Vice-President."',: A resolution recognizing
the services of General Grant, but opposing a
third term,' was tabled with some expression
of impatience, j James F. Fay, O. D. Conger,
Perry Hannan ' and : E. C. Watkins were
chosen delegates at large,": all '■ being ; strong
Blame men. ..."
:. Madison, May 13th.— Upon reassembling
yesterday John W, Carey was made Chair
man of the Convention.? Five counties were
unrepresented and many delegates had prox
ies. The resolutions adopted declare I for (an
indissoluble " union : : of > the States," that * the
United ' States are a Nation, and [ that the
States have certain undefined powers, bnt the
Nation _ has a ' proper supervision * over < all
interstate and \ international affairs ; they de
nounce the heresy . of civil war, as ; also i that
of centralized despotism, and j the ; rebel " war
claims | are | bitterly.: denounced. They ] de
clare for an ii'terchangeable gold, silver and
paper money, and the economy of the Dem
ocratic Congress is commended. The Union
soldiers me praised,' and the troops at the
polls denounced. Delegates from the Con
gressional districts were then chosen, but not

MB and Santa Clans. JJi iji
New York, May 13th.— The next issue of
the Spirit of the Times will contain the follow
ing concerning the great 850,000 match be
tween Maud S and Santa Clans : We are
Tratified to give this week a letter from P. A.
Finnegan, owner of Santa Claus, stating the
:onditions upon which he is willing to trot
his stallion against Maud S. One chief fear
bad been that the challenged party might in
sist upon the mare going to California, a con
dition that might have resulted unfavorably
to the match ; but as Mr. Finnegan is willing
to come East, we do not think that there are
nowany obstacles of consequence. His let
ter is pure business and tenders it evident
that he is anxious for the race. . The manager
of Maud S is no less in earnest, and both par
ties verily believe they have the fastest trot
ters in the world. . The response of Captain

the letter of Mr. Finnegan :
San Francisco, May 4th. '
E. A. Buck, Spirit of the Times : Your telegram
in relation to a series of races between Maud S anil
Santa Claus has been received. My proposition was
to trot five races, mile heats, best three in five, in
harness, for £5,000 a side each race, National Asso
ciation rules, which in accordance with the usages
of the turf would be half forfeit. This lam willing
to do under the following conditions :

Third— Aft of the series of races shall come off
over one track, which is mutually acceptable to
both parties, said track to be in a city which has a
trgtting club and is a member of the National
Association, the course to be agreed upon before
one deposit of forfeit. Should the parties control
ing Maud S agree to trot these races in California,
the owner of Santa Claus will allow them $500 on
each race trotted and the privilege of selecting any
track in the State which is a member of the Na

A HITCH IN THE ARRANGEMENTS.
Cincinnati, May 13th.— Captain George
N. Stone, who has the management of Van
derbilt's Maud 8, having seen the letters of
P. A. Finnegan, owner of Santa Clans, in
which he states the terms upon which Santa
Claus will trot a series of five races with
Maud S, says he cannot accept the challenge
for 85,000 a side for each race with so large a
forfeit as Finnegan proposes, nor can he agree
to trot the five races on one track, as sug
gested by Finnegan. Captain Stone's orig
inal offer was for 85,000 a race— B2,soo a side
—and was distinctly expressed in his letter to
Mr. Finnegan of April 2 < Jth. namely, to trot
the series of five races for 82,500 a side for
each race, with 82,500 forfeit, the races to
be trotted on five different tracks, to be
agreed upon by him and Mr. Finnegan before
the races begin. Captain Stone has been re
leased from the obligation to enter Maud S
in the stake race? both at Chicago and Buf

Washington, "May 13th.— General Sher
man's report to the House Committee on
Pacific Railroads, in regard to the Northern
Pacific route, says :
In a military sense the extension of this railroad
from Bismarck to the Yellowstone, and up the valley
of that river as far as the mouth of the Big Horn,
will be beyond any estimate of advantage the Quar
termaster-General may make, because this railroad
will transport men and supplies for ten if not twelve
months in the year, while the Missouri river anil
Yellowstone are barely navigable for light-draft
steamers for two, at most three months in the year.
The cxtens on of tho road will stimulate emigrants
to occupy the line of the Yellowstone east and west
to such an c.tent as to form a harrier to the no
madic Indians who have heretofore gone back and
forth from the Sioux reservation south, to British
territory north, and will enable us in a very few
years to gi\e up Forts Keogh and Custer, each re
quiring for garrison a full regiment of infantry and
four companies of cavalry. The. could then bo
moved north to the British line. By this process
we could divide the hostile Sioux, and can subdue
either moiety with more certainty and much less
Cost than now. , - r
The committee will meet to-morrow, and it
is expected that they will agree to report
favorably on the bill introduced.

'■■ The Forest Fire in Pennsylvania.
J Bradford, May Shortly after noon
to-day a fire again started in the timber-land
at the head of Fosterbrook valley, eight miles
from Bradford. That section is thickly stud
ded with derricks and tanks. The wind was
blowing a gale, and the fire swept over the
ridges, consuming everything like so many
reeds. Continuing, the fire swept down Train
Hollow, a prolific portion of the oil-field,
burning rigs, small tanks and buildings. The
villages ■■ of Oil _ Center . and Adamsville,
with the exception of one or two houses, were
entirely . destroyed. '7*. To-night the 25,000
--barrel iron tank of Mitchell k ' Jones is in
flames. Jl No villages being located near, the
danger from that source is not great. At
Baker trestle, on ; the Kendall and hired
Railroad, seven miles from the place of start
ing, a 5, 000- barrel tank is now burning. The
railroad trestle will be destroyed, preventing
trains I from :■ running. ■ About - dark . this
evening ■» the .town Jof ... Duke . Center,
a;. place Pof one thousand inhabitant",
was threatened. The fire organization ; from
this city went to that place .in response to a
telegram for assistance. . Near that town are
a | dozen huge iron | tanks, from which hun
dreds of men are now driving back the flames.
A mile above Duke i Center a nitro-glycerine
repository came 'in the course of . the flames
and exploded with ' terrible force. ; The terri
tory over which the fire swept is so wide, and
the points so inaccessible," it is impossible to
gain correct information as to the actual loss.
It is estimated that two hundred rigs, besides
the volume of oil, have been destroyed. Duke
Center is still j safe at ; midnight. _ A , falling
tree struck a man ' named William Reed, in

at JBaket Trestle, on the Kendell and Eldred
Railroad, made an overflow, and the . trestle
was burned, interfering with the movements

tempt was made yesterday by some party or

a loud explosion, and some balls of fire shot
out of the box, burning the carpet and the |
Consul's coat, and scorching his hands ; but
otherwise doing no further damage. Exami
nation of the box showed that its purpose
was to kill the person who opened it. Inside
of it was a quantity of gunpowder, a large
percussion cap, and what is supposed to be
nitro-trlyceiine. It was postmarked "Phila
