Toledo, o., November It,
In a modest-looking house b
this city resides a lady who hi the coarsf
of the ncx four years may occupy thr
position of first lady In the land. Hci
name is K. B. Bacon. She la a sister ol
Prcsidunt-elcct Cleveland. Year corre
spondent called on Mrs. lUcon and found
her a modest, fine-looking lady and a
most entertaining conversationalist. She
was thoivn a New York dispatch which
stated that her sister, Mn. Hojt, who
was with the Governor in Albany, would
probably take charge of the White Monte.
"There is no troth in the dUpalch," she
said. "Nothing lias been settled on as
yet. Mrs. Iloyt ha a family to care for.
and can hardlv leave Albany."
"Who will have charge of the White
IIone, then? Your brother Is not golnj
to follow Dan. Manniug's example and
"Oh, no; that N not at all likely. I
think my sister Elizabeth nlll attend to
the hospitalities of the White House.
She Is unmarried, can leave her home,
and ought to be with Grocer."
"She Is accomplished."
"Yes, indeed, tshc Is now enzaged in
delivering Historical lectures to cttaca
UoBsl Institutions, so yon sec she b cer
tainly well informed. Our father gave us
all thr best education in his power."
"Is your sitcr nocially inclined?"
"No; none of nsarc. We had to at
tend to our books, and bad no time for
society, when we were young."
"How many histers hive you?"
"Four three of them are marr'ed, but
one is a missionary in Ceylou. All hare
families except Elizabeth."
Perhaps you may live at the White
mat l possihle, although I have a
family of three girls and it would be dif
ficult for me to leave them. I shall go to
Washington to attend the inauguration of
my brother, and will remain several
months; until everything is settled at the
White House under ray direction. As I
said before, everything Is too undecided
as yet as to what will be done, bat 1 think
Elizabeth will lie placed hi charge of my
brother's household aCalrs."
Mrs. Bacon is not a society lady In any
sense of the word. She is devoted to her
family and her friends. If called to Wash
ington she will grace the position and be
i universal favorite.

Hon. George W. Homes, a resident of
faintsrille, Johnson County, Ky., In the
immediate vicinity of thedistrict said to be
lficctcd with an epidemic from which so
many are dying. Is isitlng ui this vicinity.
Uc says that the disease Is not Dearly so
bad as pictured. "I left borne," said
be, "on Sunday last, and I am Presenting
Attorney in the District in which I re
side. I have In the last two months
covered the two counties adjoining to
that in which I live. It k ery likely i
chat In tbe last month 200 or 300 people
lave died. This mortality, I think, Is
confined nearly to the mountainous coun
ties of Virginia. The epidemic only
reaches those places where the water Is
rapurc and where It contains much alkali.
It starts near Warflcld. There and at
lluneysxlllc on the southwest of
the Cumberland mountains there
ire many sick, bat there have
been but very few deaths. In
:oming north along tbe line of the rail
ways I learned that many hi Perrysville
ind White Camp, In West Virginia, have
died. It Is said that nearly SOO have been
buried at White Camp alone, but probably
IU0 Mould be nearer. I know that Leb

two, and I think nearly three months.

In alkali, which is poison. Tbe water is
tagnaut, and looks much like that from

like that in which blue vitriol has boiled,

"The disease is very much like the
worst cases of diphtheria. The throat
becomes dry ami parcb'tl, and In a
few days almost the whole body seems
lo be burning up from the stomacn. The
head aches and death ensues by choking.
Very many of these people are o( the

by Adolph Spreckcls, ban of Clans
Sprcckcls, head of the great Sandwich
Inland sugar ring. De Young came into
'his business office aliont five o'clock with
a bundle of papers iu his hand. Jast as
he passed through the wicket-gate which
separates the inner from the outer ofilce, ba
heard hfs name called, and turning saw
Adolph Spreckcls presenting t pistol to
wards him. De Young instinctively
dodged to avoid the bullet, but It struck
him In the right shoulder. As he was en
tirely unarmed, he darted around a high
desk in the office, and In turning a cor
ner, stumbled and fell. Sprecklcs fol
lowed after him, and leaning over,
fired two shots at the prostrate
man, occ of which hit him In the arm-pit
and the other missed him. Cbesley,
cashier cf the paper, then leaped orer the
raiPng of bis desk and grabbed the ham
mer of the pistol, which was at full cock,
while almost at the same instant Eraer
ron. another clerk, who saw the peril of
his proprietor, seized a pistol which was
lying la a drawer near at hand and
fired at Spreckcls, hitting him In
the arm and Inflicting a slight flesh
wound. Examination of DeYoung's
wounds showed that he was hit in the
left clavicle by c bullet, which badly shat
tered the bone. This bullet was ex
tracted, together with five pieces of
bone, bat its danger lies la the fact that
the built narrowly missed tbcsub-clavlan
artery, and any inflammation of the
wound may lead to dlsintegraJon ot
the walls of this large artery. The
other wound was a flesh wound, the bul
let entering the front part of the arm,
circling around under thearm-plt. The
doctors think that with quiet and freedom
from excitement no danger need be ap
prehended In De Young's case, bat they
admit tliat bis condition Is critical.
The cause of this at
tempted assassination Is assigned
to the recent exposure which the Chronicll
made of the proceedings of the Hawaiian
Commercial Company, of which the
Sprecklcs family are the head. This
company broke down the price of the
rtock from sixty-rive dollars a share to
twenty-flve cents per share, and the plain
statement irritated Sprecklcs o that he
lost control of himsclt.

which should underlie all political par

tate to oppose your idmlnls

to principles which they can not npnold.
The Republicans and Independents
who have sujvorted you rely with confi
dence upon you to maintain above all the
principles of administrative reform in

tain, against all party pressure, the vital
principles, that the public servant, like

Commissioner of Railroads Armstrong
has prepared a comparative statement,
which will be submitted to the Secretary
9f the Interior, showing the earnings and
npenscs of the Union Pacific and Central
i"ac!flc Railroads during the years ending
Jane 30th, 18S3 and 18SI.
The total earnings of the Consolidated
Cnlon Pacific Koads, the Union Pacific,
Kansas Pacific and Denver Roads,
amounted in 1831 to 810,077,133, against
$2I,jrj,CC5 in 18S5 a decrease of -52,902,-183.
The expenses daring 1831 were
$10,2),S91, against $'J.82,707 in 1833,
an Increase of $435,181. The net earn
inss of these consolidated roads In 1331
amounted to 89,817,391 as against $12,
131,900 In 1853, a decrease of $3,337,308.
The earnings of the Central Pacific
Road and all its branches for 1831
amounted to $23,C39,215, as against $23.
053,911 for 1 833, a decrease of $1,412,
C9. The expenses In 1SS4 were 817,131,

the road and its branches In 1831 were

a decrease of 81,C5GttS5.
On the subject of funding the debts of
the several Pacific Railroads, Commis
sioner Armstrong renews his suggestion
that the present uncertain inode of pay
ments be commuted to one ol fixed obli
gations, having the same lien. He favors
landing the debt on an extension of time,
and requiring the payment of fixed
amounts at stated periods. All future
earnings for Government transportation
overall roads owned, leased or operated
by these companies should be pledged un
der laws to the payment ot the accruing
Installments of the debt as they mature.
Should Congress not adopt this plan, then
the discretion of the Secretary of the
Treasury as to the Investment ot the slak

He, as an Indian himself, spoke In behalf
of all the American Indians, who preced
ed the whites upon this continent and
bad a ibzat to recognition. The United
States had always held its front posi
tion in dealing with the aborigines, that
they held the possessory right to the

that. The Indians were farming, were
becoming good 'citizens and making
money raising cattle. Tbe GovcrnmcM

General Brisbln, ot Idaho, spoke as
from the army, which had for one of Us
duties the keeping ot the Indians in order,
and wished the preamble stricken oat tu

would leave the cattle men alone if tha
stockmen let them alone. In the name
of Christianity and humanity he protest
