Ta sudden an4 serious prostration
f Secretary Manning has called out
tuich 'flattering testimocy as to hie
ability and fitness for tfce important
nfficolie fills that all Democrats will,
while- regretting his illness, iwjo'ce to
know that the man who Is closest to
President Cleveland is thus so
generally indorsed. On financial
questions he is sound, and in
the management of the Treasury
Department is noted for his economy
and for the example he sets the em
ployes, of hard work carefully accom
couiplished1. Ilia death would be a
serious blow to the administration,
and to Mr. Cleveland himself would
foe a calamity only less in degree than
that of the loss of a brother. At 1
o'clock this morning he was slightly
improved, and there is some reason
to hope for the bent.
.Iijdob McDowell, who for eight
years past has been Chancellor of this
county, has in a card which we pub
lish elsewhere declared himself no
longer a candidate for re-election.
This will not be agreeable news to the
troops of friends in and out of the
profession, who were ready to sup
port him and urge his claims
liefore tho people. They were confi
dent of his success, and will be disap
pointed to learn of a declaration that
is final and irrevocable. Judge
McDowell has met the demands of
the public with tireless industry, and
has kept pace with the bar, and on
that score bad a right to expect and,
doubtless, would have received the
support of a majority of 'the members
' of the Democratic party. He was pains
' taking and earnest in tho performance
of his duties, and has made an im-
f ression that will not soon bo effaced,
n returning again to the practice of
law the judge will be followed by" the
good winhe8 of his host of friends in
and out of the profession. He has
earned the esteem of the public, and
deserves well of his fellow-citizens.
Tns attitude of tho strikers of Liege
is a warning not only to' the govern
ment of Belgium but to all the others of
Kurope of what is coming if some
means of accommodating the differ
ence between labor and capital is not
at once devised. Without work they
are without money, and without
money are without the means of liv
ing. Goaded by hanger, by want and
by destitution, the poor people have
become desperate, and in their des
peration are striking out blindly.
This is foolish. They arc throwing
away their Btreugth, and are alarm
ing people who' othei wise ' would
be with them. ' Led by unreasonable
families called anarchists, they arc frit
tering away a strength that they may
need later on, when the great and
final strugg o between lubor and capi
tal takeB place. But then, there is also
the fearful goadings of wives and chil
dren vainly crying forfood. Whatman
worthy the name, could close his ears
to their appeals or refuse to go to any
extent to answer them?
Ex-President Arthur is "sick unto
death," a disappointed man, poor,
given up to melancholy, and a re
cluse. His physicians two of the
best in New York city say little
about his case, but they give no
hope of his recovery. The failure of
his party to give him the chance of
another four years of fame mode him
moody and distrustful. He thought
it his due, and 'forgot in his chagrin
that he not onlydid not work for the
place, but permitted no one to labor
for him who could speak with author
ity. When he returned to New York
he sought the seclusion of his own
house, and few of his old companions
liavo gathored about him. The social
circles that courted kirn before and
after he was President have been de-
.nied the pleasure of hie society. Dis-
. ease followed disappointment His
- stomach first rebelled. Both the di-
- gestive organs and liver failed to do

FIRST COMPTROLLER IH'tlRAlt
yesterday returned to olicitor-Oener-al
Goode, who is acting attorney-general
in the Bell telephone suit, bills
amounting to $3000, which ha i been
submitted byEpha Hunton Jeff Chan
dler and Ch rles S. Whi man of special
counsel in that case, for 1000 each
for "services on account." Tho First
Comptroller says in a letter to the

somewhat irregular in form. Ho
wants a more explicit statement.

Washington, March 24. The Tele
phone Committee resumed the exam
ination of Casey Young to day. He
said, emphatically, the Attorney Gen
end never told him or any one else
that he would bring suit against tho
Bell Company. He had never spoken
to Solicitor Goode about the AUorney
Gencral's departurj until he had seen
it in the papers; ho had never heard
that tbe Attorney-General as to
leave town in order that Goode might
bring suit. After tho-Van Bentfiuy
sen interview with the A ttoraey-Gen-end
witness had, at Van Bcnthuysen's
request, written a letter to the Presi
dent appealing from the action of the
Attorney-General in refusing to have
anything to do with a telephone suit
Witnecs had that letter in his pocket
when he came to Washington with
Huntington, but it was never deliv
ered, for upon their arrival they found
the Attorney-General absent, and Solicitor-General
Goode brought suit.
Prior to that he called uKn Goode
and asked if the papers had arrived,
and was informed that they had not,
and 11' ft within five minutes. Senator
Harris had gone with witness to see
Goode. Next morning witness called
again, and was told by Goodo that the
papers had reached him, the papers
from the District Attorney at Mem
phis. He did not remember whether
the papers were shown to him W it
ness had gone to the Department ot
. Justice to endeavor to have the suit
brought, as he thought it should be
brought "at our relation." His idea
was that he could better control the
suit in that form, and he did not want
it brought in the name of the govern
ment. At some time in August or
September Goode was writing the or
der to bring the suit when witness
. called the second time. He did not
know thnt he intended to writo the
letter, as he had said nothing beyond
remarking that the papers had reached
him. Witness had intended to ask
' Goode to bring the suit in the form
he desired, but upon consideration ho
concluded it would not be the right
'thing to do
The witness was examined at great
length, but nothing of general interest
was elicited, and the committee ad

Banral or tna Civil Hrrrlee Law.
Washington', Much 2. Tho mi
nority report of Represented e C cm
cnte of Georgia upon Mr. Seney's bill
to repeal the civil service law takes
the ground that the "grave abuses that
grew up under republican misrule do
not demand or justify the new and
radical departnrxi in principle em
bodied in the civil service law. - Any
attempt to limit the President's power
of appointment or removal is not a
valid law, and can only . operate
through executive acquiescence. The
act pFaece the power of appointment
in I he hands of commiituoners sup
posed to be ncn-partisan who apply
hair-splitting tests unteceneary to the
practical ascertainment of the fitness
of applicants. The most serious ob
jection toitm-ihat shown toward a
permanent office-holding community
utterly at variance witai American
spirit. In conclusion, the report at
tacks the present system al distribu
tion of BpiKiintmeuts to HtaUes, and
declares il we are to have a pemianent
official community it should be organ
ized on a better basis, but the most
lirect way for reform wonkj' be
through a repeal of the law.

Washington, March 24. Gen. Ha-
zen, Chn-f Signal utlirer, appeared
beforetheHou.se Committee on fcx
penditures in the War Department
to-day in answer to tho charges made
airuinwt the Signal Service by Second
Comptroller May nurd. Ho said tiiat
woiie the service had trebled inc cost
was i:W0,0 0 less per annum now than
when he took charge of the ottice.' He
told of Capt. Howgate's cniltezzle
ment, his arrest and escape, and sa d
the Signal S rvice had tried in every
way in its power to secure his arrest.
Gen. liazen submitted a long docu
ment denving in detail the charges
made by Mr. Maynard and said that
in eve y case mentioned the spirit of
the law had been carried oot. He de
clared the- various allegations of ir
reg larity and unauthorized expendi
ture of public man y by the Signal
Servi to be untrue, and maintained
that the expenditures were proper
and necess ry and were authorized by
higher authori y than the Chief Sig
nal Officer. Gen. Hazen claims that
it is personal prejudice from Gen.
Myers, his predecessor, to himself,
kept tip by those who have always
been hostile to him, and aided by
those whom he has discharged as un
worthy the service.

as other drummers are only required
to pay a tax of J-'5. If there is any
way to keep from paying it they will
take advantage of it. A rominent
whisky drummer took the position to
day that the local option law would
drive whisky from two-thirds of the
towns now selling it; for, he said, if
a county votes for wliisky, in a large
majority of the towns there are not
the required twenty-five real estate
owners to petition the authorities to
grant the applicant license, and on
this account he did not t ink whisky
drummers could afford to pay the
license. In this county, which has a
large number of towns, there are not
more thantwo which possess twentv
five real estate owners who would
sign the petition. .Warren, Washing
ton, Lauderdale and Monroe, large
whisky selling counties, have not
more than one town each. In many
counties there is not a town with
twentv-five real estate owners.

view with Mr. Jay Gould in regard to
the strike on the Missouri I' u-ilic rail

are herewith given. Mr. Gould said:

we should have been in contempt of

company has a e'eor legal remedy
against the members ot the Knights

ssld that lyo position taksn by Vice
President Hoxie in regard t) the strike
had been fu ly approved by the Board
of D rett'rs.
The success of this strike, he said,
would unsettle confidence throughout
the world, and. these workmen would
be the first to feel its disastrous conse
quences. He had no no.n, he said,
which would lead him to suppose
that tho strike would exteml to

Kansas Citv, Mo., March 21. The
statement in a previous dispatch
quoting Mr. Nettleton as saying that
the switchmen's strike was settled on
a basis of Chicago pric s, was made
on authority of an evening paper. Mr.
Nettleton being interviewed later by
an Associated Press representative,
said that ho had mode no such state
ment. He could only say that the
strike had been settled and, that, he
presumed, was what , the public de
sired most to know.
The terms of settlement, as yet, are
kept secret. The men returned to
work at 7 o'clock to-night by order of
Mr. Monaghan, chief of their associa
tion, and are themselves ignorant of
the prices fixed upon. They are
known only to the officials and the
strikers' committee. It is assumed
that an advance was granted or the
committee would not Tiave compro
mised. The men are told that they
will know in a few days what agree
ment was made.
The idea is advanced that the offi-
r.ials hope for an early settlement of
tbe Aiiesourl racinc strike, ana cn-
