Several weeks ago at the rcipicat of lead
ing Democrats of East Tennessee Maj. J.
II. Wagner was appointed United States
peusion agent at Kuoxulle to succeed
itobt. Taylor, Democratic nominee for gov
ernor. The new appointee was major of
the 13th Tennessee cavalry of the union
army and was a gallant oldicr. Immedi
ately after his appointment several Demo
crats of East Tennessee came licre and
urged Secretary Lamar to recommend to
the president the reconsideration of the
case and the revocation of the appointment
on the ground that as a member of the leg
isbiture in 1SU" "Wagner voted to disfran
chise ex-confederates aud also voted for a
resolution to oiler a reward for
the apprehension of ex governor now
Senator lsham J. G. Harris. To
day Secretary Lamar made the
following response to the persons who
were demanding a reconsideration of the
case. The secretary of the interior declines
to recommend the revocation of Major
Wagner's commission as pension agent at
Knoxville, lie says that Major Wagner
was appointed upon the recommendation (
of the leading and best citizens of Tennes
see, all parties who represent him as a
man fully qualified, by integrity, intellect
and character, for the duties of the posi
tion, and as a man endeared to the people
by his consistent support during the past
twenty years of their highest and best
interests. The fact brought out against
him since his commisaiou was issued that
he had given an unjust and unwise vote for
disfranchisement when he was a youag
man not more than 21 years of age, imme
diately after the war. when the passions of
both sides were roused to the highest pitch,
should not now be used to ostracise hkn
from public trust among a people whose
rights and interests he has ever since been
true and loyal to. We have all been con
tending that the issues of the war and the
passions growing out of it should not be
kept alive, and 1 do not know of any in
stance in which that precept can bo better
enforced than by example in this. Both
sides in Tennessee showed courage to light.

The Mail and Ex
talk wa3 caused
today by the dispatch from Louisville
slating that the private papers of the late
Jacob Thomp-oa wcra about to be pub
lished and that they would give some start
ling facts regarding the part taken in the
plot to free confederate prisoners during
the war by southern sympathizers at the
north, many of whom arc holding office at
the present time. It was learned by u Mail
and Express repoiter that Mr. A. K. Yart,
this city, has important documents in his
possession beaiiug on this subject.
Among these are sworn accounts of
meetings held by Thompson and other con
spirators by persons who were present, and
in one of tlitoa accounts the names of a
man now a prominent federal office holder in
Chicago and of a man who is a prominent
city official aro mentioned. At this meeting
Thompson was heard to tell of the failures
of this and other plots, to cripple the north
and to say that the inauguaration of riots
and the employment of men to engage in
them cost the Confederacy $o00,000.
Thompson also said that they had under
taken to release prisoners from all the
northern prisons; had purchased arms and
smuggled them to their "friends" sufficient
to have armed all the prisoners, and that
'this was "all that was wanting,' our friends
north stated. Thompson also told that
when the time came, wnich was the last
night before the presidential election at
Camp Chase, the effort was too feeble to
be recognized, and at Chicago where he
had been "assured the prisoners would be
released and the city burned and destroyed,"
only little was done before the leaders were

however, after eating supper, she went to
her room for the purpose of arranging a

left the house for a bhort time wnileshe

Sr. Louis, Oct. 23. The sixth, and
what proved to be tho decisive, game be
tween the Chicagos and St. Louis Browns
was by far the closest aud exciting of tiie
series, although the sky was overcast with
threatening clouds which promised rain at
any moment, the crowd early began to ar
rive on the ground and continued to pour
through the gates till long after the game
was under way The attendance was
slightly larger than yesterday, the total re
ceipts being $2,500, this made the total
amount won by the St. Louis club by the
result of the game, .$13,910.20, of which
sum $G,33 1.23 was taken in at Chicago,
and $G,3Gj.S3 at St. Louis.
In order that the game need not be
called on account of darkness the hour for
its commencement had been fixed at 2:30.
Fifteen minutes previous to that hour the
Chicagos marched upon the field, being
warmly received by the audience, which
by this time packed the free scats and com
fortably filled the grand stand. Ten min
utes later the St. Louis club appeared and
were greeted with the wildest applause.
Before the game began Mr. II. Clay Sex
ton, on behalf of the members of the Mer
chants Exchange, presented Mr. Bushong,
catcher of the Browns, with a handsome
silver service, and Captains Anson and
Comiskey with boqucts.
For umpire Grace Pearce, of the league
staff, had been selected. His voice was
weak and his decisions throughout the
game gave rather poor satisfaction.
At precisely 2:30 the game began, with
Chicago at the bat. Before the end of the
first inning it became evident that it was to
be a battle of pitchers, Clarksou and
Carulhers, the crack pitchers of the respec
tive clubs, being in splendid condition.
Neither side scored in the first inning and
only one man reached first base O'Neill,
of St. Louis, who got a base on balls.
For the Chicagos Pfeiffer hit safe to
right, stole second, reached third on a pass
ball and came home on Ryan's hit.
In the fom'h Pfeiifer .sent the ball under
the scats behind center field for :i home
run, and sn the sixth made the third and
hist run for the visitor? by getting to third
on a hit which passed between the leg of
both Bobinson and "Welsh, and coming
home on AVilliamson's lly to Welsh.
Up to the eighth inning St. Louis had
not m-vl- a hit or got but one man on first.
fn this inning, however, ComUky got first
on a safe hit to right; then "Welsh hit to
Burns, who threw the ball past Anon, al
lowing Connsky to score, and after Font,
aud Robinson had retired on Hies Bushong
took fir-st on balls and - Latham's three-base
hit brought in two runs. Latham, how
ever, overran third aud was touched out.
Cartliurs retired the nine by going out at
lir-t on a little hit to Burns.
Tins left the score tied and the crowd
went wild. The ninth inning yickicu no
runs for either side though Burns made a
two base int.
