New York Horfd: During the life-'
time of Benjamin H. Hill, Col. Fia ik
A. Burr enjoyed an it timate acquaint
ance with aim. "Ben Hill," raid Col.
Burr yesterday, "was the origira'or rf
one of the biggest political project!
ever attempted in this cb iLtry. t'o a
after Gen. Garfield was looted, Demo
crtti Uulinf men like Hill fearing
thtt men of the Mahone stamp would
get tbe tpper hand, entered into an
organization f r tbe preaena'ioa oi
whkt tbey were pleased t cad the
b't'er elements North and South.
The movement looked to revolution
izing all existing pa ty lines. Hill
wrcti to Gen. Garfield broaching tbe
subject. Garfield responded, asking
for particulars astoiheplin. They
were given, and when GarSt ld came
to Washington to ta'se the oath of of
fice there was a conference between
the Prebident-elect and the lead
ing men 'of the Soith. An
agreement was made then. Ia
brief, tbe terms were some
thing like this: The Southern
gentlemen were to all sign their
names to a circular acknowledging
that the war was over, in lut', and
tbat the results growing out of it were
all accepted in good faith by the South
ern people. They also recognized tbat
they were one people and that tbe
Northern citizens had no desire to
humiliate their Southern brethren.
All this was to be elated in a clear aid
diplomatic way. Then, tbe Southern
statesmen agreed to accept tae.fina i
rial policy cf the Rrpublican party.
For this Gen. Garfield promised to
turn over the Fedeta' patronage in the
South to the Southern (Senato-a. The
p'ai win approved by Blaine, and il it
bad been carried out it wonld Lave
brokea up the two existing portiee ot
to-day. Gaiflild'a dra'.h nipped the
project In the bnd. It needed patron
age to carry it out.
"Merator Hill told mo theitwy him
self, rhen I met him in Philadelphia,
where he was undergoing a eureka
operation on bis tongue. He said he
wo ill give me the correspondence be
tween Gen. Garfield and himself, aud
be tu might it should be published.
Well, he returned tome to Georgia;
a second operation was performed on
his tongue, and shortly t f ter he passed
away. Just before his death, however,
he wro'e me a lttter, saying that it was
his with that I should have his corre
spondence. After his det'i I wrote a
nit i to Ben. Hill, jr., inclosing his
ftber's letter, and asked him to please
forward the correspondence to me.
The son replied, saying that he recog
n'z9d his father's wish in the matter,
and would comply with my request if
I insisted upon it, but the family
though t that the publication of the
letters would arouse a useless contro
versy, and hoped I would not precs
tbe point, and I did so'."
"I can testify that the main po'ntof
the story is true," la'd Mr. Frank Hat
ton, who was standing by. "When I
weLt into the Poetofiice Department,"
he continued, 'I found that all the
postofflce patronage in the Soath had
been turned over to the Democrats.
For instance, I found writ tan across a
Florida case: 'Do ncthing until you
hear from Sentt ra Ca'l or Jones.' It
was the same in tbe other Southern
S ates, but I am afraid I paid very lit
tle attention to these net x. I dii net
believe in building up the Republican
party in tbat way."
WHAT MB. BIN HILL, JB , SATS.
At'ni.ti Constitution: "A lerorter. of
tbe Constitution at once hunted np Mr.
Ben Hill, and found him in his office
in tbe cm torn house building. Hand
ing the article from the World t) Sir.
Hill, he rcai it carefully and then
said: This ia not the first time that I
have heard of the matter mentioned
by Mr. Burr. My father was on inti
mate, pert o rial relations with tbe lata
President Garfield, and believed that
his administration wonld treat the
South with more justice than previous
ones. I have two leltjrs written by
Pree dent Garfield to my father tfter
his election and be'ore his inaugura
tion, fully justifying this belief. Bnt
I do not believe any agreement was en
tered into between them ai stated by
Mr. Burr. I cannot think Mr. Burr
has been correctly reported. He cer
tainly never wrots to ma inclosing
any letter from my fn'ber asking for
the alleged correspondence with Mr
Garfield?"

X KEW THEORY RtGAUDIXG THE
DALLAS kILLIMJ.
The Three Jfegroes Now Believed to
Have Been Butchered With
out Prorogation.
Dallas,' Tax., January 30. The
shooting affiay repotted from here
Seeterday proved to be a serious affair,
oly three persona were shot, but the
developments are sensational and at
tracting slmoit universal attention.
All the paitie shot were eclored
Jesse Bonner, a mlddle-aed nan;
Margaret Young, bis step daughter,
aged five years, and Henry Johnson,
aged ten years. Bonner was instantly
killed, and the other two ft'ally
wounded. Detective Dancan of Dal
las, and Depot '-Sheriff Seely of Free
stone county, who did the killing,
will stick to tie statement male by
them that they went to Bonner'
house to arrest him as a horse-thief,
and were tired npon by parties inside
with shotguns uad pistols, and that
they returned the fire, and tbat tbe
kilting was done in self-defense. But
the remarkable feature of tbe tragedy
ia tint neither of the officers receivtd
a eemt jh. OHL-ers who have made a
thorough investigation of tbe prem
ises assert that all the bullet-holes
found in tbe bojse show tbat they
were made from shots fired inward
from the dror of the cabin through
which the officers entered, and tbat
no evidences were discovered ot shots
fired outward by the occupants of the
cabin. The evidence taken before tbe
justice is voluminous, and tie jury re
turned a verdict tba; Bonner's Ueath
was caused by
. GUN-eUOT WOUNDS
inflicted by eboti fired from weapons
in the hands of one Seely and two
other parties to the jury unknown.
Duncan admits being with Seely and
shooting, but the witnesses from
among the occupants cf the honse
only identified Sea.y. Who the third
party was is a mystery. The story of
the negiow, with surrounding circum
itancee, mase it appear credible far
different from the sia'epients of Dun
can and Seely. Robert Johnson said
he had just returned to the house
from work with his bnt tier Henry,
when two men rushed in and bet a a
filing without saying a word. Bon
ner fell, as did alto tbe little
girl. Johnson and his broth
er then ran outside, and there
Henry was. shot down by another
man. Josephine Davie, who was in
the house at the time of the shooting,
tett fie to the tame effect. Duncan
and Setly are still in custody at the
ja'l, and the grand jary, now in ses
sion, is invest satiun tbe tragedy. The
opinion prevails tbat indictments f ir
murder will be returned againet Dun
ein and Seely. Public opinion, a i ex
pressed on tie streets and in publio
plaoee, is not complimentary to them
in connection with tbe tragedy.
A Hew aad Horrible Theory.
Galvkston, Tax , January 30. The
ATu special from Dallas tavs: "A
good deal of excitement was' created
here to-day oa the aaco incemert cf
a new and horrible theory touching
the killing cf Jesse Bonner and
other negros Thursday nivht by Dep--uty
Sheriff Seely of Freatt ne county
aud Detective Duncan of this city,
who surrendered themse ves. A visit
to the scene cf tbe shooting shows
tbat Bonner's five-year-old child was
shot through the forehead and tbat
Robert Johnson, colored, was shot in
trie knee. The evidence at the in
quest thus far tends to show that the
ebo t og was entirely unprovoked,
limner was sitting in his cabin with
his child on his knee when the office) s
burst in and began shooting. The
negioes had no weapoas. Witnesses
testily that there were three white
men ia tbe party. One ttojd outaide
aud shot Jobntoi as he ran away. The
belitf is growing that the killing was
cold-blcoled murder. Tbe colored
population are agitated. Constable
Miller says tbat his tUtement of the
negroes is corroborated by the appear
nice cf things. Tbe Hi Mrs have av
ceit lined that jnst before Duncan tnd
Seely gave themselves up Duncan
toik a breech-loading shotgun to the
"Two Brothers" saloon, at Main and
Sycamore stretti, sod requested Joe
B'ack to keep it until called f r, re
marking: "I guess we've male a bad
k-ll'ng.'1 Late last night the sheriff
arrested, as the third aggressor, a de
tect' ve of Jack Duncan's corps, known
as "Lcosely." Duncan and Seely are
locked up In one cell and "Loosely"
in another. It is the impression tbat
"loosely" will turn Slate's evidence.

A BIG UND SLIDE
Oa tbo Be roper Boantala, 31 car
tenia-, Ala.
Naw Yobk, January 30. A Ster
ling (Ala.) special to the TVmrissys:
A big land slide, involving a large
port'on of a famous mountain in the
vicinity of this place, took place yes
terday. Five miles from Sterling is
what is called the Scraper mountain,
and the noith aide of it is a great bar
ren waste, with huge boulders pro
jcting over level, and anyone on top
of o e of these can look straight down
into the waters of the Chattooga river.
About one mile of this part cf tbe
mounla n befan breaking loose and
with a tremendous roar crushed t the
vn ley below, where it emptied a great
mi ss of locks and trees. About one
quarter of a mile t.f ths slide rushed
its way across the Chat tooga river,
making a compl tsdam and causing
the water to back a distince cf several
miles. About 7 o'clock tbe water
broke around the slide and rushed
with terrible force into the regular
channel beliw. At the place where
the slide left fie mountain side there
is a perpendicular wall of about 300
ft. and atout fif y fiet from the top
there is a great hole twenty feet in
diameter which is suppoied to be an
entiance to a rave. Tbe slide is a
wondorful sight, and hundreds cf peo
ple are coming from all 'sections to
view the freak of uature. It is said
the noise made by the sliding was
heaid to a distance o! tn miles, but
terrible as it was there was no loss of
life or property. The dills and boul
ders have been threatening to break
down ever since the heavy freeze, but
no oae expect id o serious a result as
tbia. A few adventurous pco., le are
making preparations to scale tbe place
where the slide came fiom and explore
the supposed cave.

Pt. Louis, January 30. A highly ex
c'ting scene occurred in the lower
house of the Municipal Assemby Uat
night. The house a ai wrangling over
the fas bills, which hav been bones of
contortion before it for several weeks
past, and In the bight of a discus
sion over a motion to refer the cor
rectness of the form of a certification
upoa one ot tbe bills to tie city
counsellor, the speaker, Mr. Fox, de
clared the honso adjourned. This
produced a grea. comruo inn, and the
minority, or Fox men, U ft tbe IftU.
The majority reconvened, elected a
new Bptaker and clerk aad one or
t wo minor officers and at'j .turned after
sending dm sqca I of police to take .
charge of the tall and prevent the
minority fiom meeting there. Three
policemen were stat'sned at the hall
alter midnight, but the excitement
bad then subsided. Tbe police still
h Id ro 'session of the hall.
The Woman Who Translated New
ton's "Prlnclpla."
Other women, whose names are
less well known, wrote on astron
omy during the seventeenth century.
We may cite Maria Cunitz, daughter
of a Hilcsiau doctor, who published
astronomical tables in 1(150; Jeanne
Dume. who, in 1(150, wrote a book
defending the Copcrnican system
aeainst "soientifio attacks upon it.
Ol more modern date was Madame
Gabriolle Kmilie de Brcteuil, Mar
quise du Chatelet, who was for fif
teen years the constant friend of
Voltaire, and in her retreat at Cirey
devoted ber whole lifo to the sciences.
She it was who first made known
to France, then devoted to soientifio
Cartesiaoism and the doctrine of ele
mentary vortices, the masterly work of
Newton. This was a title to glory
which might have made the lortune
of more than one scientific man, and
it fell upon a woman. Mile, de lire
teuil had received a very careful ed
ucation, but ber natural tasto for
study and serious occupations did
not prevent her lrom shining brill
iantly in the sooiety of the courts of
the Regency for some years alter her
marriage with M. du Ohalclct. One
oi thebc.it evidences of her genius
that we have is in the bearing toward
her of Voltaire, who had no respect
for any but montal gilts. He had
returned from Great Britain full of
enthusiasm for English science
and philosophy, and occupied
with the dream of making Newton
known to his countrymen and de
throning Descartes at the academy
It may appear singulcr that he
selected Madame du Chatelet for this
work-"but the ehoioe was not cx
traerdinary after all. She had al
ready made some progress in mathe
matical studies under the direction
ot Maupertuis and Clairaut, and
Voltaire was looking. for the assist
ance he needed to some one outside
of the official scientific circle. The
translation of Newton's l'rincipia
would be the best means of making
known iu France the great En
glish geometrician nd the ad
mirable simplicity winch, his theory
of attraction lent to the study ot
the movement of the stars. This
work Mme. de Chatelet did well.
But she did more than make a sim
ple translation. The algebraic com
mentary which follows the transla
tion is in largo part the work of this
lady, although it was composed under
the direction of Clairaut and revised
by him. "We have witnessed two
prodigies," said Voltaire in his his
torical introduction to the frincipia
"one that Newton shcmld have
composed this work, and tbo other
that a woman should have translated
and eluoidated it," From " Womrn
in Attronrmy," by E. Lagrange, in
Popular Science Monthly tr iebru
