lErECTAI. TZIXGXAJt TO THE DISPATCH. 1
Colt-mbus, October 19. The fighting
has been fierce all along the line in Ohio
the past week, and some decided changes,
in the manner of conducting the campaign,
at least, have occurred. The Halstead let
ter in regard to the alleged ballot box forg
ery had a depressing influence on the Re
publicans of the State, and it has been with
great difficulty that they rallied from the
scare which they received.
It was several days before the Republican
leaders could muster an answer and explana
tion of the situation, and they in reality
had to go back and commence the campaign
over. There is no doubting the effect and
the advantage which the Halstead letter
gave the Democrats in the campaign,
though it hardly amounted to so much as
was claimed for it by the Democratic com
mittee. A PEEJIATTJEE CONCLTTSIOK.
Chairman ifeal thought it virtually set
tled the campaign and gave the victory to
the Democrats. The Republican organiza
tion, however, throughout the State has
rallied and is doing excellent work and now
they have no donbt that they will win. The
usual large number of meetings are being
held by both candidates. The campaign
had grown to be personal to such an extent
that many of the better Democrats and Re
publicans became disgusted. Both sides
were suffering from this character of warfare.
Bach committee saw the effect, and have
had the good judgment to bring the cam
paign to a more elevated plane in the past
few days. Special attention is being given
to the appointments of Senator Sherman,
and he is meeting with ovations every place
he appears. Much time and expense are
given to make his meetings prominent.
Sherman will speak in Columbus next Fri
day evening, and to-night 75 Vice Presi
dents lor the meeting were selected. This
will be the first and most important meeting
of the campaign in this city.
THTTB5IAX WILL SPEAK.
The Democrats are in a measure trying to
offset the good effect of the Sherman meet
ings in the State. To do this they have se
cured the consent of Judge Thurman to
make a few speeches beginning next week
when he will speak at Music Hall, Cincin
nati, Thursday night. He will be escorted
from Columbus by the numerous clubs and
a private train will be used on the trip.
The tone and dignity which is being
thrown around the Sherman and Thurman
meetings has led many Bepublicans
and Democrats to remark that it
would have been much better
bad the campaign been conducted on this
line all the way through. Governor For
aker, though, has been used to a personal
and pyrotechnic display, and never before
has met any one as an opponent who was
able to bother him as much as Mr. Camp
bell has. Foraker could have won the fight
easily in the State on the tariff issue alone,
and all that has been outside of this has
been gratuitous and without effect.
A PERSONAL FIGHT.
There is no doubting the fact that a strong
fight is being made against Foraker person
ally, some of which comes from his own
party. The radical Republican opposition
to him hope to secure his defeat and elect
the balance of the Bepublican ticket.
"While they will scratch the head of the
ticket alone they will not vote for Camp
bell, the object being to make the Governor
feel his unpopularity.
The Democrats, however, claim that the
current is so strong against Foraker that it
will aid them to the election of their entire
ticket. They are confident in the extreme.
Colonel Conger, Chairman of the.Bepub
lican State Committee, said to-night that
they had no desire to disguise the fact that
they had been considerably disconcerted by
the Halstead letter and that it had done
them a great deal of harm, but he con
sidered they were fortunate alone in it
happening when it did, which has given
them time to recover and go on with the
CONGEE CLAIMS YICTOBY.
He had no doubt now that they would
elect the entire ticket, as well as the Legis
lature, but had the retraction of Halstead
come st a late date in the campaign when
they would have been unable to counteract
its influence, the situation would have been
Colonel Conger realizes also that the prin
cipal fight is being made on the head of the
ticket, but he considers the Governor is in
no danger of defeat. He expects that in the
last week of the campaign there will be
numerous roorbacks and misfit stories which
will be started by tbevTemocrats for effect, j
but they are ready to meet them, and he
thinks the people have had too much ex
perience in such matters to be influenced in
Mr. Conger .thinks the registration in the
cities will be in favor of the Bepublican
ticket, as the Democratic Committee and
speakers have been -frying to make the
election boards unpopular to such an ex
tent that they have created a prejudice in
the minds of Democrats,many of whom will
refuse to register Tand thus loose their
WT1EEE CAMPBELL MUST WIK.
A prominent Bepublican who has just re
turned from Cleveland and has inspected the
registration books, in company with prom
inent Democrats of that city, states if Gov
ernor Foraker is defeated it will have to be
done in the southern part of the State, as the
full Bepublican vote is being registered in
Cleveland, with a fallingpff on the part of
the Democrats. The situation at Cincinnati
is an enigma, and it will have a great deal
to do with the final result of the election.
Conservative men ot both parties just now
consider the situation about a standoff and
well informed sports on either side are offer
ing no odds.
LIVELY IN KEW JEESEY.
The Decline In the Prohibition Tote Has
Strengthened Bepublican Hopes
Leon Abbett Will Han a Hard
right A Letter of Acceptance.
rEFECLU. TXLXGSAX TO TOE DISPATCH. I
Tbenton, N. J.,October 19. The Jersey
campaign is now at its height. Both parties
have settled down to the hardest kind of
work. There is no lack of energy any
where. The Bepublicans seem to have
taken a new grip and thrown off the
lethargy that has been so common of late
years. They are making fewer blunders
than usual. With the exception of the
unnecessary delay over General Grubb's
letter of acceptance, the leaders have man
aged the canvass admirably thus far. The
State Committee was afraid'the letter would
not straddle difficult questions cleverlv, and
took to patching it up to suit all sections.
Instead of the individual letter of the can
didate for Governor, they were making a
patch-work affair devoid of all personality.
Grnbb is not much of a politician, bat he
knew this was a mistake. So he took the
matter in his own hands, and gave out the
letter atAsbury Park on Monday night
The State Committee intended to send the
revised edition out a day or two later, and
were at first alarmed and rather indignant.
But the letter has taken so well that the
leaders have changed their opinion and
admit that General Grubb did the best
thing after all. They think he blundered
into doing a mighty clever thing.
Not since the origin of the Prohibition
party has it cut so small a figure in New
Jersey as it is cutting this fall. It is hard
to find any trace of third party activity.
There is supposed to be a State Committee
with headquarters somewhere, but it doesn't
materialize. The Prohibition vote at
the charter election in Newark showed
the decline of the party. Two years ago the
third party candidate for Mayor received
3,500 votes; last week he got 250. Fisk's
19,000 voters promise to dwindle down to
3,000 or 3,500. It is this breaking up of the
Prohibition vote that gives the Bepublicans
the most hope of winning next month.
The thing is certain. No old Prohibition
ists will vote for Leon Abbett,because of the
latter's legal relations with the State Liquor
Dealers' Association. It is not a sure thing
that Abbett will win. If he does, his
margin may be as unpleasantly narrow as
Ludlow's was in 1880. A week from now,
when the legislative nominations have
been nearly completed, some figures as to the
probable outcome of the election can be
reasonably presented. Until then it is safe
to say that the contest promises to be
close, although the chances la vor- Abbett.
APPEAL TO THE NATION.
Mississippi Republicans Formally Withdraw
Their State Ticket From the Field
Not Allowed to Etch Con
duct a Campaign.
Jackson, Miss., October 19. The Be
publican State Executive Committee met
here to-day to consider the withdrawal of
General James B. Chalmers from the head
of the State ticket. Chalmers was not here,
but it is understood that he wrote a letter to
the committee declining to make the canvass
for Governor. The committee issued the
As Republicans of Mississippi we are com
pelled to withdraw our State ticket. We
knew that our votes would be stolen and oar
voters driven from the polls, but we hoped in
the larger towns and cities, at least, the sem
blance of free speech might still remain to us,
but oar candidates are not safelv allowed to
discuss or protest. We desired especially to go
before tbe whole people of the State
and challenge the Democrats to a com-
Earison of principles and records. Oar coarse
as always been conservative. When tbe armed
revolution of 1875, wrested tbe State from us,
Mississippi was the only Southern State un
burdened with a State debt. She has a Demo
cratic one to-day. The Constitution of tho
United States guarantees to eai,h State a re
publican form of government. Mississippi is
governed by a minority despotism, and we ap
peal to our country for redress. Tbe Constitu
tion that we adopted is the only one in the
South so satisfactory that it has not been
changed. Our laws stand substantially un
changed and unrepealed, but we are Republi
cans. This is our offense.
That we are not actuated by cowardice in
withdrawing from the contest Is shown by our
past For 14 years ever since the infamous
Mississippi plan was adopted our path has
been marked by blood. Not only tbe well
known leaders who bravely died at the bead of
the column, but the faithful followers known
only in tbe cabins of tbe lowly. We
refer not only to sneb well-known slaugh
ters as .Kemper and Copiah,' Clinton and
Carrollton, Wahallak and Vicksburc:. Yazoo
City and Leflore, but to the nameless killing by
creek and bayou, on highway and byway.
These are tbe Democratic arguments which
crush us. We can do no more. We dare no
longer carry our tattered and blood-stained
Republican flag. We apnea! to the nation. Is
national law and honor bat a delusion and a
snareT When we rely upon the guaranties of
the National Constitution do we but lean upon
a broken reed? If so, announce the policy
boldly and acquit us of further effort.

-".FECIAL TELIGRAU TO THE DISPATCH. 1
Haebisbueo, October 19. The hand
shaking feature of the Bepublican State
campaign virtually ended in this city to
night. Candidate Boyer and Chairman An
drews arrived here to-night from Lebanon,
where the Bepublican nominee for State
Treasurer was called on by a large num
ber of his political friends. To-night
he received at the Lochiel Hotel, and
in response to a demand from a number of
supporters he made a brief speech, after
having been introduced by District At
torney Kunkel, thanking them for the com
pliment tendered him by the presence of the
crowd that had congregated in front of the
hotel. Speaker Boyer took particular pains
to say nothing ot a political' nature.
Nearly every county in the State hasheen
visited by Candidate Boyer and Chairman
Andrews, and many thousands of people
have shaken hands with the Bepublican
standard bearer. The remaining time be
tween this and the election will be mainly
occupied by a canvass of Philadelphia
by Speaker Boyer, who will make a number
ot speeches in that city, as well as lend a
hand in stirring np his friends to proper
activity. Chairman Andrews will, after
Monday, conduct the campaign from Phila
delphia. Senator Delamater was also in the
city to-night, and spent considerable time in
consultation with the Bepublican State
Chairman, Speaker Boyer and other promi
nent Bepublicans. To-morrow the party
will leave lor Philadelphia.
IT IS HILL'S EIGHT.
He Is the-Only Ulan Interested In tho New
York Btato Election Flatt nnd tho
Governor Straggling for the
New Yobk; October 19. The interest in
the election in New York this fall centers
upon one individual. Both parties have
nominated State tickets, of course, but the
only man of prominence interested in either
ticket is Governor David B. Hill. The Be
publicans nominated a strong ticket, with
good men on it, but the offices to be filled
are not of enough importance to make a
hard fight for them.
Governor Hill nominated the Democratic
ticket against the protest of all the New
York City delegates, who were voted down
in the convention by delegates from tbe
rural counties, which usually give 60,000
Republican majority. The offices to be
elected are a Secretary of State, an Attor
ney General, a State Treasurer, a Controller
and a State Engineer. Nobody except the
candidates, their personal friends and the
Governor cares much about them. This
mean's an unexciting canvas and a falling
off in the vote.
The real hard fight is over the Legisla
ture. The State Senators to be elected this
fall will vote for a successor to "William
Maxwell Evarts, who has not as much pos
sibility of succeeding himself as David B.
Hill has to be the next President. Ex-Senator
Thomas C. Piatt is a candidate for
United States Senator to succeed Evarts. He
is trying to gobble up Senators; that is what
prevents this campaign from being stupid.
The Republican fighters want to get two-
thirds of the Legislature, and pass bills over
the Governor's veto. The Democratic fight
is, first to prevent the Bepublicans from
getting a two-thirds majority, and second,
if possible, to secure a majorityof the State
Senate, both to get votes for united States
Senator a year hence and to confirm the
Governor's nominations to State offices.
The patronage at the disposal of the Gov
ernor and the next Senate is greater than the
patronage of the whole State ticket. Be
publicans and Cleveland Democrats hold
many and lucrative State offices. The terms
of many of these officeholders have expired,
and the Governor wants to fill them with
men of his own choice. The voters of New
York State will not turn out on election daV
in large numbers to decide a fight in which
Thomas C. Piatt and David B. Hill are the

-SPECIAL TELIQBA1I TO THE DISPATCH.
Philadelphia, October 19. In two
weeks and three days the Stafe Treasurer to
succeed" Captain Hart, will have been
elected. The chairman and candidate of
both the regular parties have made a tour
of the State by counties, and little
else remains to be done beyond making
preparations to get ont the party
vote. Chairman Andrews is expected
to-day or to-morrow to report at State
Committee headquarters, where it is ex
pected he will remain until on the
eve of .election, when he leaves for his home
at Meadville to vote for Harry K. Boyer
for Stafe Treasurer. The Bepublicans ex
pect to elect Boyer by a very handsome
majority, while the Democratic leaders
maintain that they will poll a very
heavy percentage ot their vote. The
Prohibitionists, are stirring themselves,
and judging by the attendance and
speeches at tbe Academy of Music
mass meeting on Thursday night they will
poll a fair percentage of' the votes cast in
this city for the amendment, one of the pro
hibition leaders saying that they would poll
at least 5,000 votes in this county. Speaking
of the fearthat on account of the slowness
of the President in announcing official
changes in Pennsylvania that there would
be but little interest taken at the coming
election by tbe average party worker a
leader yesterday said:
It Is not Quav's fault that the appointments

boys know this, and you can bet they will do
nothing to tie his hands. They will get the
vote oat and trust to chances.
Senators Quay and Cameron are both ex

CBT CABLE TO TBI DISPATCH.
LOHDOK, October 19. Copyright.
The so-called trial of Father McFadden and
a score of Donegal peasants, some for the
murder of Police Inspector Martin, others
for conspiracy connected therewith, which
commenced at Maryborough Wednesday, is
still going on, and is likely to last another
week or two. Dublin Castle has made up
its mind that the prisoners shall be con
victed, and has taken characteristic meas
ures for gratifying its desire.
The law, which always presses hardly
npon political and agrarian prisoners in
Ireland, has in this case been twisted and
strained in a scandalous and shameless
fashion. Catholie priests and peasants are
being tried by a Protestant Tory jury, a)l
the men known to be of their faith or sus
pected of at least a taint of Nationalism or
even of mild Liberalism having been ex
MERELY JUDICIAL MTJEDKR.
Should any of the prisoners be convicted
by this packed jury, 99 Irishmen out of luO,
and a majority of Englishmen, will regard
it as attempted judicial murder, and an
effort to carryout the sentence would inevit
ably arouse a storm of indignation sufficient
to overwhelm the Government audits base
It is comforting, at any rate, to know that
the proceedings in the little Court House at
Maryborough are being chronicled by inde
pendent and fearless observers, and that al
ready some ot the dark and crooked methods
of Dublin Castle lawyers have been dragged
into the light of day. English members of
Parliament are present in court to show
their sympathy, and special correspondents
have been sent tby several English newspa
pers to note and describe the trial, which
will figure in history as one of the most
notable in Irish jurisprudence.
2IIGHX HAVE BEES' DIFPEEENT.
Had the jury been fairly impaneled
there would have been no doubt of tbe re
sult, for the prisoners were arrested hap
hazard, in the hope that some among them
might prove to be the maddened men who
stoned and struck the unfortunate officer.
There is absolutely no evidence against
them, save that supplied by the policemen
whose versions of the affray which led up to
Martin's death vary to an extraordinary de
gree. As for Father McFadden and the others
charged with aiding and abetting him,
there is good reason, to believe that the war
rant which Martin attempted to serve will
be proved illegal; and the prisoners there
fore justified in resisting or evading its exe
cution, but even this packed Protestant
Tory jury may, it is hoped, hesitate to con
vict the prisoners in the face of the many
important facts elicited from the crown
witnesses in cross examination.
CAUSE OP THE AFFRAY.
It has been proved out of the mouths of
the prosecuting policemen that the trouble
commenced after the people saw their rev
erend priest struck and wounded; that blood
streaming down his face momentarily mad
dened them; that Martin's behavior and
demeanor were needlessly violent and insult
ing; that Father McFadden repeatedly im
plored his people to retire; that he entered
his house upon the urgent entreaty of Ser
geant Carey, and that it was after he had
disappeared that Martin was struck down.
Since Wednesday a peasant named Coll,
one of the last men arrested, has been on
trial for his life. The case against him per
sonally rests upon the testimony of one con
stable, who has repeatedly varied his
story. Should Coll be convicted the other
Will, SCARCELY ESCAPE,
and the verdict of the jury is therefore
awaited in Ireland with a universal anxiety
which is positively painful in its intensity.
The case for the crowu closed this afternoon,
and Macdermott, one of the leading lawyers
in Ireland forthwith opened the case for
the defense in a four hours' speech, which
will take high rank in the annals of foren
sic oratory. The court has just adjourned
until Monday, and, as there are many wit
nesses to be called for tbe defease, the case
can scarcely terminate before Wednesday.

Poetess of Passion Restores a Blind
SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DIBPATCn.l
New Britain, Conn., October 19.
Benjamin Winchester, 86 years old, of this
city, has every reason to bless the day that
Mrs. Ella Wheeler Wilcox visited the New
Britain Home. Several months ago Mrs.
Wilcox made a short visit to this city and
while here the was taken to the Home, as
one of the show places of the to wn- Among
the inmates was Mr. Winchester, who was
totally blind. He attracted the attention of
the poetess, and becoming interested in his
case she felt ture that if he could be treated
by some of New York's famous occulists his
sight could be restored.
Mr. Winchester finally consented to have
the cataractawhich had grown over bis eyes
removed by toe surgeon's knife, and he was
sent to New York at Mrs. Wilcox's expense.
The first operation proved only partially
successful, but was enough to give the aged
man considerable pleasure and to encour
age the poet-philanthropist to try again.
Four weeks ago Mr. Winchester went to
New York afrain at Mrs. "Wilcox's expense,
and submitted to another operation.
Tuesday hi arrived home, and stepping
from the traik he recognized people whom
he had not seta before in. ten years. He
walked off without aid, and in step and ap
pearance he appeared to be only about 50
years old. He was dressed in a new suit of
clothes, also given him bv Mrs. Wilcox.
A happier njan than Mr. Winchester does
not live in Jjew Britain to-day, nor has Mrs.
Wilcox a ixpre enthusiastic admirer. He

A Maniac With n Itolfb Speedily Clears a
Chicago, October IK A madman,
clutching a long knife and uttering un
earthly screams, this morning ran amuck
near Nineteenth and State streets, and he
narrowly escaped committing a mnrder.
There was a jar going north on State street,
'and Ben Cunningham, the insane man, ap
peared first on Butterfield street, where, it
seems, he es aped from some house. He is
a strong, tthletie colored man. Down
Archer ave ue he came, yelling like an
Apache on he warpath. With a bound he
boarded thj car, and, drawing the knife,
began to jbmp over the seats. In an in
stant the car was deserted bythe occupants
and the conductor was doing his best to dis
arm the man. Ben kept np his howling
and slashed at the seats as if they were
Officers O'Shea and O'Brien sprung upon
the car, and for ten minutes the officers bad
a deadly struggle with the maniac, who
seemed "to possess superhnman strength.
Ben broke away once and it seemed as if no
earthly power could save O'Brien's life.
The knife was coming down directly toward
his heart when, with a desperate effort, he
seized the weapon. The madman was
finally overpowered, but O'Brien was se
verely cut about the fingers. The maniac is
in a eell at the armory. He is shackled and
he spends his time in shouting and trying to
break his bonds.

Kansas City, October 19. The passen
gers who were injured in the wreck of the
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe near
Dodge City, yesterday were brought here
to-day. Mrs. Mary C. Dankler, of Lamar,
Mo., was still uncouscions when she was
taken from the train. She was removed to
the company's hospital where the physicians
entertain but little hope for her recovery.
Miss Mary Lupton, ot Keokuk, Iowa, and
F. B. Almen, of Elgin, 111., was taken to
the Sisters' Hospital. They are both seri
ously injured. Mr. Almen is an old
man, and may not recover, Miss Lupton's
injuries are not dangerous. The others were
not badly enough hurt to prevent them con
tinuing their journey.
All the passengers speak in high praise
of the conduct of Conductor Thornberg.
He was in the second coach standing near tbe
red-hot stove when the accident occurred.
He held the stove in an upright position
until tho fire was extinguished, burning his
hands severely, but preventing the wreck
from catching fire.

ill of His Friend) SorprUed at the Honor Conferred
In accordance with the announcement in
yesterday's Dispatch, a successor to Com
missioner of Pensions Tanner has been
selected, and as was stated, he is a Western
man, iG. A. B. man, an old soldier, and
his appointment seems to give general
satisfaction. General Green B. Baum is
the mrx. He was sworn in during the day
and will assume his duties to-morrow.
"SPECIAL TEL20EAX TO TIIX DISPATCH. I
Washington, October 19. If General
Green B. Baum, the new Commissioner of
Pensions, proves to be as secretive in his
conduct of the Pension Bureau as President
Harrison. was of his intention to make the
appointment, he will never be asked to re
sign on account of an over-elastio jaw. The
announcement this morning of the selection
of Mr. Baum was the greatest surprise of
the Harrison administration. Not a hint
had been given of the consideration of Mr.
Baum's name, except that in The Dis
patch this morning, and that gentleman
himself confesses that the first intimation
given him of the intention of the President
was on Wednesday evening, when he was
sent for and asked if he would accept the
The secrecy maintained in the proceedings
is thought to plainly indicate the fear of the
President that the least suggestion of his
intention wonfd call for
A FLOOD 01? CEITICISM
and objection sufficient to prevent the ap
pointment; in other words, that Baum
would be killed off by a meddlesome public,
jnst as Warner, Merrill, Brown, Campbell
and a host of other candidates were killed
off almost as soon as their names were men
tioned. The fact th at Mr. Baum hurried to the
Department ol the Interior and took the
oath of office even before his appointment
was bulletined or known on the streets leads
suspicious ones to the further inference
that tbe President feared some mischief
might come to his purpose sit any interval
were permitted to elapse between: the an
nouncement and the assumption of official
The appointment appears to be a popular
one, if the expressions of members of Con
gress, officeholders and others are accepted
as sincere, Dut in Washington an expression
of opinion from members of the partyin
power in regard to the acts of the official
representatives of the party are not always
NOTABLE FOB IHEIB J'EANKNESS
Some gt those given crat for publication
are quite different from others offered for
private delectation. These speak of Mr.
Baum as having been engaged too indus
triously, in lobbying- since!, his departure
from the. office of Commissioner of Internal
Bevenueand the statement that the first
suggestion of his name was made to tbe
Tresidentby Senator Mitchell, of Oregon,
is accepted as corroborative evidence.
But all this is very vague, and it does
not even come from any authoritative source
that the appointment was suggested by
Mitchell. Furthermore, another assertion
is that wholly on his own hook, and never
having heard of Mitchell's suggestion,
Secretary Busk ' urged Baum upon
the President as a good appoint
ment. Everyone who knows Mr. Busk
knows that he would have no particular
liking for a lobbyist, in the well-known in
terpretation of that word. On the other
hand, it is unanimously conceded that Gen
eral Baum's conduct -of the office of the in
ternal revenue was admirable, and it is ex
pected he will handle the many divisions
and boards, and agents and other employes
of the Pension Bureau equally as well.
EXPECTED TO BE EXCELLENT.
None of those, even, who privately ex
press opinions less complimentary than they
might, in regard to the appointment, have
any other prediction than that tbe office will
surely be excellently administered by the
Mr. Baum, while he has maintained his
citizenship in Illinois, has Deen practically
a constant resident of this city for more than
20 years. His law practice has been good,
bnt not highly profitable." He lives in a very
modest home on East Capitol street, has a
very modest law office on F street and is al
together one of the most quiet and unpre
tentious ot the ex-officials who have made
their homes here and kept their names before
EVIDENCE 03? MODESTT.
It was characteristic of the General's
modesty, therefore, for him to say, as he did
to The Dispatch, correspondent, that he
has nothing to say in regard to the past
conduct of the bureau: that he would have
no policy except to do his work quietly
and faithfully, and that his work would be
to see the office administered honestly, in
strict accord with the laws.
Generally speaking, the expressions of
opinion of all public men who conld be
seen to-day were so similar in tone as to
make separate quotation quite unnecessary
It was that the appointment conld not be
improved" upon, and decidedly the best that
could have been made from among all
whose names were available. The following
is a sketch of General Baum's career:
WHO THE GENEBAL IS.
General Baum was born InGolconda, BU De
cember 3, 1829. He received a common school
education, studied law. and was admitted to
the bar In 1853. In 1856 he removed, with his

Illinois Politicians Nerer Dreamed of Gen
eral Raam'a Appointment.
Chicago, October 19.- The announce
ment of the selection of General Green B.
Baum as Pension Commissioner was a great
surprise to the politicians in Chicago, A
reporter called this morning at the office of
Senator Harwell, but fonnd the Senator
absent, he "having gone to. South Bend to;
meet tbe members of the .fan-American
Congress. Colonel Abner Taylor, Colonel
James Sexton and Senator Gibbs were
found, however. All three expressed
surprise, and said it was the
first time they had heard his name
mentioned in that connection. In fact, they
had held the opinion that if anyone was to
be appointed from Illinois it would be Gen
eral James S. Martin, of Salem, as since the
retirement of Corporal Tanner both of the
Senators, several Congressmen and a large
number of prominent Bepublicans had for
warded a recommendation for his appoint"
Of General Baum it was said that he was
eminently fitted for the position. Postmas
ter Sexton said that there was no man better
equiped for the place; that he was an or
ganizer possessed of business ability, rare
tact and a very wide acquaintance.

Dr. Jibson, of New York, took issue with
the speaker. He thought it one of the most
desirable things that the Holy Communion
should be restored to its primitive condition
as the Christian passover. -The motion to
non-concur was .lost. -Mr. Spanlding, of
California, asked that the whole matter
be postponed, qnd was voted down.
Mr. Hall, of Massachusetts, protested
against depriving a priest of
his right to receive the sacrament when
officiating in an isolated parish. The pro

in favor of adopting the change. The bal

rSPEWAI. TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATCH:.!
New Yobk, October'19. A reauesthas
been made to the members of the committee
for the International Exposition of 1892-to
contribute to a fund for the preliminary ex
penses. The General Committee, at its
meeting on October 10. passed a resolution
offered by Mr. Flower to raise's fund of
$200,000 tor preliminary expenses. So far
the general expenses have been paid out of
the check for $10,000 which the aurv gave to
start with. There are plans and specifica
tions to be prepared, offices to be hired,
clerks to be paid, pamphlets and arguments
to be printed. Then committees will have
to go to Albany and Washington.
All this requires money at once. The re
quest to send their checks to this fund has
been made of the committeemen only, as it
was thought best to ask nothing of the gen
eral public but subscriptions to a guarantee
fund, to" which the committeemen also are,
of course, expected to contribute.
