CHICAGO, March 31.The Times' London
Special saya: Advices received here by the
^government are that Russia is accepting the
Jfact that further negotiations with England
&re useless and is applying herself to two
objects. One is to completely isolate Eng
land from all other European powers, and
the other to hasten the preparations for the
All exposed points on the Black Sea are be
ing put in a condition of defence. Batteries
are being erected and the concentration of
troops has received a new impetus in every
direction. As much activity is being displayed
as during the height of the campaign against
the Turks. There is reason to believe that
movements are being perfected for the
seizure, when the proper moment arrives, of
a commanding position on the Bosphorus, at
the eastern end of the Little Balkans, at
Bumeli Kavak, where the channel is very
narrow, and commanded by heavy works on
is also hurrying on preparations. Although
the matter of calling out the reserves has to
be passed on by parliament the summons is
already out, and men liable for duty are be
ing ordered to report at the various head
quarters. Ships for the transportation
of troops are being collected at Portsmouth,
and government agents are making contracts
for transport services at all principal sea
ports. All government orders and contracts
for supplies are now marked urgent. Mate
rials for trench railways are being put on
shipboard in large quantities at Woolwich.
Everywhere there is feverish haste in all
the3e preparations. Volunteers in large
numbers are coming forward and being ac
cepted to fill out the first army corps. Some
doubt prevails as to the
ATTITUDE OP TURKEY,
in case of hostilities between England and
ltussia. No effort has been spared by
Minister Layard to secure a Turkish alliance,
und the general impression is that he will be
successful. The Russians are making gi
gantic efforts to restrain the Turks, and are
promising an extended reduction of terms
fif peace. They are also working on Turk
ish fears as to the extension of the in
fluences of the Greeks by urging that Eng
land is determined to advance Greece at the
expense of the Ottaman power, -while Russia
pretends to hold the Greeks in check. At
present the Turkish ministry is strongly in
favor of an English alliance. The Sultan
favors neutrality, and the army and
tehgious element oppose Russia.
EUSSIA SCOEES A POINT.
The Tribune's cable says: Russia has ap
parently scored the first point against Eng
land by obtaining the promise of the Porte
to maintain strict neutrality. Thus the res
ignation of Ahmed Vefek Pasha is daily ex
pected, and as he has hitherto been Eng
land's strongest friend in the present gov
ernment of Turkey, his retirement could be
considered as a triumnh of Russia over
English influence. Reliable information
leads to the belief that England has resolved
on a far more war-like measure than the
mere calling out of reserves, and that in
structions telegraphed to Admiral Hornby
will be followed very shortly by a declaration

NOW IT'S PEACE.
LONDON, April 1.The Standard's cor
respondent at Berlin says: In consequence
of Austria's refusal to come to arrangements
with Russia it is believed Prince Gortscha
koff has already informed Lord Loftus that
Russia is ready to yield to England's demand
regaid to the congress.
AND NOW lf*S WAB.
A special to the Standard, dated Constan
tinople, Friday, states that if England's fleet
is not withdrawn the Russians will occupy
Constantinople with the approval of the
Sultan. The same correspondent under
stands that Minister Layard, in accordance
with the instructions of the British govern
ment, has asked the Porte what its attitude
would be in the event of an Anglo-Russian
war. Safnet Pasha replied he was peronallsy
inclined to neutrality, but would submit the
matter to the council.
The Standard correspondent at Constan
tinople telegraphing Sunday, says: I hear
on the very best authority that the Sultan
told the Grand Duke Nicholas that he would
not fight against England. The Russians
will occupy Cujukdore Monday. The English
have landed a large quantity of war material
on the island of Tenedas.
The Standard's report from Berlin that
Russia is ready to yield to England's de
mands should be received with reserve, as
both the Agence Bnsse and Journal de St.
Petersburg of yesterday opposed concessions
on the part of Russia. Moreover, the cor
respondent of the Times at St. Petersburg
telegraphs Sunday: War is now regarded al
most inevitable. The vague hope that a
diplomatic formula might be found for a re
newal of obligations has been destroyed by
Lord Beaconsfield's declaration that the
question at issue is not a matter of form,
but of essential reality.

is making fresh efforts to bring about a

will eventually yield to England's demand.
Count Andrassy informed General Ignatieff
that the whole tendency of the treaty was in
opposition to the interests of Europe, and
no lasting peace could be concluded without
the sanction of all the powers. Ignatieff
rejoined: Russia had altogether abandoned
the idea of a congress in conse
quence of the difficulties raised by
England. He urged Andrassy to state Aus
tria's demand. The Count declined, as he
still hoped for a congress, but declared if he
had to consider the treaty solely from an
Austrian point of view, he. would demand
far greater concessions than he had. But
he had to consider it in relation to the gen
eral interest of Europe. Ignatieff also failed.

THE MISSING VANCE.
Neither Murder or Suicide Now Thought
the Cause, but Crookedness in Connection
with the Public Printing Investigation
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
CINCINNATI, O., March 31The mystery
of ex-Congressman Vance's disappearance is
still unexplained. The theory is gaining
credence that he has neither been murdered
nor committed suicide, but has fled to escape
some real or fancied trouble. Col.
Vance was chairman of the public
printing committee in the last Congress and
conducted the investigation of the govern
ment printing office. It has been charged
that the examination was itself of such a
nature as to need an overhauling. The
records at Washington show that a
CONSIDERABLE SUM OF MONEY
was paid to one Vance, of Gallipolis, a rela
tive, for services as an expert printer, the
relative Deing a miller by occupation and
never having seen the inside of a printing
office. This fact was developed recently by
the investigation that is now in progress in
Washington, and there are those who believe
that there was
of the same sort in danger of exposure.
The most careful review of the circum
stances preceding the disappearance fails to
reveal any indication of insanity. His
friends have gone to St. Louis and are ap
parently acting on the hypothesis that he has
taken flight. He borrowed several sums of
money in Cincinnati on the day of his dis

coinage at the San Francisco mint. They
estimate what it will cost the government to
buy silver in London and land it here, and
regulate their prices accordingly.

WASHINGTON, March 31.The caucus of
Republican Senators yesterday did not last
very long, and resulted in a general scold all
around. At the end of the scold there was

But only a small portion of the Republi

colleague, who is now a great lover of Hayes,
don't think the policy of
RANDOM, BAMBLTNG, OBJECTLESS ATTACK
on the President a good one. He has never
made any disclaimer to the President upon
the subject as has been reported, Oglesby,
of Illinois, is more inclined to take sides
with the extreme Reds. Terry, of Michi
gan, McMillen, of Minnesota, Paddock, of
Nebraska, and Kirkwood and Allison, of
Iowa, are all inclined to remain quiet, and
don't think there is any satisfaction for the
Republican party in any attempts
TO SOALP HAYES
There is a prospect of future caucuses.
The talk disclosed a wide difference as to the
belief in what is to be done, but in the main
there was beautiful harmony in opposition
to the administration. It was fully realized
that an empty fight of mere words made
against the President was too forlorn a pro
gramme to engage any one who had any
self-interest or any self-respect remaining,
Jtat the rank and file are in a measure wil
ling to compromise, if the fertile brains of
either Conkling or Blaine cannot
invent something deadly that does
not play boomerang to the seceders.
McGarrahan CaseStartling Incident.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
WASHINGTON, March 31.There was an
other long day given to the McGarrahan
case. The only thing that was made per
fectly clear was that the case on the side of
McGarrahan is managed without system, and
the committee itself is proceeding with the
work with an almost total disregard of sys
tem. There was a long, dreary lot of evi
dence designed to show that McGarrahan
was originally entitled to the property, but
no single substantial new fact was developed.
There was, however, one very
at the session. Elon C. Ingersoll, ex-Con
gressman from Illinois, is the principal
counsel for McGarrahan. He was to con
duct the cross-examination. The business
had hardly began at the morning session
than Ingersoll was seized with violent pains
about the heart which subsequently proved
to be angina pectoristhe disease from
which it is said Charles Sumner died. For
two hours he suffered mortal, and it was
but he recovered late in the afternoon so as
to be removed to his house. Robert G. In
gersoll and other members of the family at
tended the sufferer. One of the new ldria
counsel was asked to-day when he expected
the evidence would be closed, and in the
coolest manner imaginable, replied that at
the present rate of proceeding, he thought it
would take till July. McGarrahan's counsel
are equally uncertain as to when the case
will be closed. There is only one way to
ever come to the end of the squabble, and
that is for the committee to agree on a defi
nite line of procedure and specify the time
for this, like everything else, to the end.
Oglesby's style of conducting the investiga
tion is a decided improvement on that of
the other members of the committee.
Pacific Railroads Pro-Rating Bill.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
WASHINGTON, March 31.There has been
a long struggle over the pro-rating railroad
bill which was decided on in the House com
mittee, and it was only agreed to by a com
promise. Luttrell made a motion in the
House committee to extend the scope of the
bill so as|to include in its operation the entire
system of subsidized Pacific railroads, pres
ent and prospective, including also the three
trans-continental roadsthe Union Pacific,
Atlantic & Pacific, and Southern Pacific.
The measure thus becomes one of general
regulation of all these roads. Summary
powers are vested in the commission to en
force compliance with the charter. Those
who voted for the compromise under which
the bill passed were Messrs. Huse, Morrison,
Luttrell, Hewitt, Cole, Chalmers, Throck

the negative were Blane, O'Neil, and Cas

WAsmNGTOS, March 31.The caucus of
Republican Senators yesterday, resulted in
no formal action. It appears, from the
views expressed by Senators, that while they
concede that the speech of. Senator Howe,
delivered a week ago, is mainly just in its
strictures on the course of the administra
tion, they can see no propriety in recalling
past eventajjaLjrawaana-and elsewhere, and
making a direct issue with the President,
and they are also agreed that the so-called
civil service reform is a deception.
They therefore think that the Repub
licans should strive to strengthen
their party, irrespective of what the Presi
dent may say or do, and they point to the
late election in New Hampshire to show that
it resulted in favor of the Republicans, apart
from any consideration connect with the
national administration. They are of opin
ion that it would be better to approve of such
measures as they can in the future, rather
than oppose the President in his Southern
conciliation policy, and other measures
which do not meet with Republican approval.
Besides to make an open issue with the
President, would benefit the Democrat party,
to the, injury of the Republican party. They
say they can do nothing, no matter
what independent q|urse the Presi
dent may think proper to pursue.
At the same time they do not impute dishon
esty of purpose to the President, and see
some things in his administration to ap
prove, but they doubt the wisdom of much
of his so-called policy. As a committee of
Senators appointed by a caucus heretorore,
called on the President with regard to ap
pointments, fec. and failed to come to an
understanding, it is considered useless again
to approach him in a similar way, as the
President acts independents of Sena
torial advice or confidence. It is known
that the Persident on that occasion regard
ed the call as a mere personal matter, and
as of no public interest, and therefore he
was not disturbed. Under all the circum
stances the Republican Senators do not
think it wise to take an active part against
the President, but to do the most they can
for the interests of their party, remembering
that the President has three more years to

The Stewart Women's Home in New York
Charges the Working Girls More for
Their Board Than Their Wages Amount
fNew York Evening Post.]
When Mr. A. T. Stewart's hotel for work
ing women was begun, it was generally un
derstood that the immense amount of money
expended in the large building was in some
sense a gift to the working women of New
York, who would be boarded in the estab
ishment for a sum sufficient to cover the
outlay incurred in keeping the hotel in a
comfortable and respectable way. In other
words, it would be an immense co-operative
sort of house-keeping in a splendid build
ing, for which no rent would be demanded.
It was hoped that, with these great advan
tages to start with, the actual cost to each
girl would be much lower than she would be
obliged to'pay for comfortable accommoda
tions in a private boarding-house. At the
same time it was understood that certain
vouchers as to respectability would be re
quired from each applicant for admission,
and that some restrictions as to hours, and
so forth, would be enforced, all of which is
generally acknowledged as perfectly proper.
It was, thereforerwith a great deal of inter
est that the regulations governing the
Women's hotel were read, and the only rule
which has occasioned much comment is that
fixing the rate of pay for board and lodging
at $6 a week. In addition to this there will
also be a charge for washing. With a view
to ascertaining exactly what class of women
would be able to pay this sum for their
weekly board, and also to finding what is the
amount which respectable shop-girls and
others have to pay in private boarding
houses, a reporter of the Evening Post
called at some of the leading dry-goods
shops of Sixth avenue and on Broadway. At
Macy's establishment the impres
sion had gained ground that
the Stewart hotel was mainly
intended for women who had seen better
days, and were accustomed to a more luxuri
ous made of lmng than they could command
at $6 a week. Out of the five hundred
girls employed at this shop in the busy
season about fifty would be able to pay $6 a
week, besides the extra expensas for washing,
etc., and still be able to save enough from
their salaries to clothe themselves respect
ably, and to pay their car fares and other
every day expenses. The salaries paid here
range from $1 50 a week to the "cash-girls"
to $ 15 and 18 a week to the heads of de
partments. Taking the whole list the aver
age salary paid is about $6 a week. About
the same wages are paid at Altman's and at
O'JVeil's, the millinery shop. On Broadway
the wages paid to the sales-women in such
first-class shops as Arnold & Constable's, A.
T. Stewart's McCreery's, and Lord & Tay
lor's, are a little higher than on Sixth
ayenue, and a better class of girls are em
ployed. In more prosperous times a fair
salary for an experienced sales-woman in the
cloak and suit department at Lord & Taylor's
had been $15 a week now for the same work
8 to $12 are paid. In the millinery and sewing
departments, where the women are not re
quired to dress in any but the plainest way,
the wages are much lower. The average sum
paid to working girls in these departments
is now as low as from $5 to $6. The women
who work in the manufactories at making
men's clothes, at sewing, are paid less than
shop-girls, and usually according to the
amount of work done. A capable woman
an make $7 a week working for the Broad
way clothing houses. At Stewart's retail
shop the average wages paid to the work
women, who are entitled to the benefits of
the Women's hotel, and who may be expect
ed to be able to pay $6 a week, are teachers,
artists, and experienced telegraph operators
At the Western Union telegraph company's
offices the reporter was told that operators of
fair ability when first engaged were paid at
the rate of $6 a week. No information was
obtained as to what the most capable of. the
women received. Mr. Henry Clair, who, it
is understood, will have charge of the
Women's hotel, told the reporter that it was
the intention of Mrs. Stewart particularly to
assist those women who had seen better days
and could not obtain the least comfort of
life for the salaries they were receiving.
Teachers, cashiers in shops and offices, tele
giaph operators and artists were specially
From one of the retail dry-goods dealers
on Broadway, the reporter learned that the
comparative high rate of board to be charged
at the new hotel was something of a disap
pointment to many shop-girls, who had
hoped that the establishment was particular
ly intended for the class of women employed
in Mr. Stewart's shop. When full the Wo
man's hotel will accommodate about one
thousand persons. The reporter was in
formed that many applications for admis-
Further Particulars of the Perpetrators in
the Skull-Cracking In Winnebago City.
The slaughter of Robert Mapeaon, of
Winnebago City, heretofore mentioned,
seems to have been one of more than ordi
nary atrocity. The undoubted object of
the assassins was plunder, as the murdered
man was supposed to have considerable
money in Jus house. Accordingly, the
would-be thieves provided themselves with
a miniature base-ball club, loaded well at the
end with lead. Thus armed, they effected*
an entrance into the house, but were par
tially frustrated in the first purpose
of robbery by the wakefulness of
Mrs. Mapeson. This fact saved her hus
band's money, but it did not save her hus
band's life, whose skull was cracked with the
club, and death ensued.
The man first arrested for the crime was
one George Greazer, but he is most likely a
mere dupe or tool in the hands of a more
deep-dyed criminal. Since his arrest, Greazer
has "squealed" on a youth named Fred.
Williams. This Williams is young in years,
but old in crime. He hails from the State
of Maine, where he is respectably connected,
and has been the source of interminable sor
row to his friends and relatives. He is,
moreover, suspected of other crimes, which,
in reality, led to his seeking,-or being driven,
to the comparatively obscure region of Win
nebago City. His Nemesis, however, has
followed him, and he is now, apparently, im
plicated in a crime which may end on the
THE ANDERSON CASE.
An Alleged History of President Hayes'
Fffort in Behalf of Anderson.
[New Orleans Times.]
WASHINGTON, March 26.There has been
a good deal of general talk about the efforts
made by the President to save Anderson and
Wells from the Penitentiary, which might
have had a slight tinge of truth, but in
many particulars the current rumors are in
Since the matter is ended it may not be
improper to give the inside of the matter.
All through the month of February, the
President was beset by his friends to take
some active steps to avert the fate which
seemed to be hanging over the returning
It was strongly urged upon him by men
like Hall, Garfield, General White, and
others, that the country looked upon those
men as martyrs that the vote of Louisiana
had been saved for him by the extremest
means, and that common grati
tude, if not public policy, required that the
President should not sit idly by and see the
men who had counted the vote of Louisiana
for the Republicans, sent to the penitentiary
without doing something to prevent it. To
these entreaties, backed by dispatches from
the returning board, the President steadfast
ly renhed that there was nothing he could
The attorney general had been instructed
to inquire if the trials were being conducted
according to law, and in what way the fed
eral judiciary could interfere, and in this
Judge Devens was assisted by two of the
ablest lawyers in the United States. This
question was exhaustively reviewed, and the
opinions of the counsel were that there was
no ground upon which the United States
could interfere. The attorney general said
further, that in his opinion, the State govern
ment of Louisiana was as perfect in all its
parts as that of Ohio or Massachusetts. At
this, the plan of federal interference waj
Then the matter of bringing all the per
sonal influence possible to bear upon Gov.
Nicholls was discussed. A shrewd political
adviser of the President's suggested a clover
flank movement. He said that Gen. W. S.
Hancock was perhaps as well known as any
man in America. He had been a prominent
Democratic candidate for the Presidency.
He was a statesman of a high order. He
had earned both the respect and the grati
tude of the people of the South by his ad
minibtration of affairs while in command of
th military division of the South. He was
Nicholls' class-mate and friend at West
Point, and the friendly relations then estab
lished had been maintained since the war.
Why not get Hancock to go to New Orleans
and see what could be done?
The President saw in the suggestion a way
out of the trouble. An officer of tho army,
of very high rank, went to New York to see
Gen. Hancock. He explained matters to
him fully, and told him he could do the
President a most important service if he
would undertake the delicate negotiation.
Hancock had very little taste for the job.
But he had known Hayes in the army, when
he commanded a division in Hancock's
corps. Finally General Hancock concluded
to go, but only to serve his old division com
mander, who was now in great straits.
The rest is well known.
Hancock was feted in New Orleans. The
freedom of the city was offered him. Gen
tlemen, the most nrominent in the state,vied
with each other in their attentions. His visit
was a magnificent outburst of the apprecia
tion of the people of Louisiana of the man
who combined the splendid courage of the
soldier with the regard for right and law of
Generel Hancock arrived in New Orleans
on the night of Monday, February 18.
On Tuesday evening, Jebruary 19, he
cautiously broached the maUer to Nicholls.
In answer to tho question as to what he
meant to do about Anderson, Governor
Nicholls said he really did not know. That
a motion for a new trial for Anderson, which
was expected on that day (Tuesday, 19th),
had been postponed by Judge "Whitaker un
til Tuesday, February 26. After stating the
case fully to Nicholls, General Hancock took
A few days after Hancock's arrival, or per
haps almost simultaneously witk it, an aid

in New Orleans with confidential dispatches
to Gen. Hancock.
The ceremonials attendant upon the death
of the Pope, which were conducted Wednes
day, Feb. 20, and the parade and review of
the State guard on Friday, Feb. 22. so oc
cupied the Governor's attention that he
could not give the matter of Anderson's
pardon much consideration and it was not
until Friday evening, March 1. that Nicholls
finally agreed to pardon Anderson, if the
supreme court did not liberate him.
On Sunday evening, March 3, Gen. Han
cock left New Orleans for the East, having
accomplished successfully his delicate mis
These are the facts. Anderson is not yet
released, although the verdict of the superior
criminal court is set aside. The attorney
general of Louisiana filed his application for
a rehearing on Friday, March 22. It is un
derstood here that the defense will not ad
mit that the right of a rehearing applies to
this case, and will move for an or^er of re
lease. If this fails, then they will try the
effect of a writ of habeas corpus.
