Italian llnnd Vlnlhlo.
New Yontc, July 1. At tlio annual
cloction for directors of the Postal Telegraph
Company, thoro wan only ono ticket
in tho field, and it was unanimously elected.
It was as follows: Hugh J. Jowctt, President
of tlio New York, Lako Erie & Western
Railroad; George S. Coe, Prosidont of tho
American Exchange National Dank i
Thomas Dickson, President of the
Delaware and Hudson Cnnal Company;
II. L. Hortou of II. L. Hor-ton
& Co., slock brokers ; G. W. Cats, President
of tho Pittsburg, Fort Wayne & Chicago
Railroad; Joel 1). Erhnrdt, United
States Marshal; F. W. Peck and E.L. Gil-lotto,
of Chicago; Alansou W. Heard, Henry
Cummins, and George D. Roberts. The
last three have been connected witli tho
company for some time, the first as President,
the second as Vice-President, ami the
third as a Director. All of the others aro
For several weeks it hrt3 been rumored
that the control of the company would be
turned over to a new management, and
nearly every prominent capitalist not
identified with the Western Union or known
to be friendly to its intciests has been
spoken of as a possible .director. It is
umlei stood that tho delay in changing
the Board haj loon due to tlio investigations
of tho concern that have been
conducted by tho new element that entered
tho directory yesterday. Tho election of
Mr. Jewctt was a surprise to Wall street,
as ho is and hnsbcen for sometime a Western
Mr. Cummins, the Vice-President of tho
company, Bald that the ticket elected was
selected by Mr. Jewett and Mr. Coo. Tho
latter voted upon proxies representing over
$11,000,000 of tho $21,000,000 capital
stock of the company. Only about two-thirds
of the stock hns been issued. Mr.
Cummins also said that an amount of stock
sufficient to control the company has been
placed in trust with Messrs. Coo and
Jo wet t for three yoars. They can vote
upon it for certain purposes, but, according
to one provision of the trust, can not sell
it, or loaso or consolidate tho company to or
with the Western Union, or make any pooling
arrangement with that company. Tlio
policy of tho now company, as indicated
by tho talk of those connected with it,
would Boom to bo war against tho Western

bonds, of which about $:1,000,000 have been
issued. Its lines consist of two wires
this city and Chicago. Tlio offioerj
say that tho next work will bo tho construction
of a line botween Boston and
Washington, via Now York, Harrisburg,
and Baltimore, with a branch from somo
point southwest of Now York to Philadelphia.
Thoy also say that they have closod
a contract with a new English company
that una raised sufficient money to build
an ocean cable, and will havo one laid before
next winter. The new Board of Directors
will meet to elect officers on Friday.
Tho report was current in Wall street
during the day that Mr. Jay Gould had
captured the Postal Telegraph Company.
It possibly arose from the significant incta
that Mr. Jewctt is a director of Western
Union, and Mr. Coe very close
business rolntions with Mr. Cyrus W.
Field. So far as can be learned. Mr.
Jewctt ha givon no indication of terminating
his allegiance to Western Union.
A Hoy's .Suicide.
Philadelphia, July 1. The suioide oi
the thirteen-year-old boy, as telegraphed
turns out to bo a very sad affair.
Mrs. Oliver Currier, ou going into the yard

stroot, and looking down through a eollnr
window, saw almost at her feet her only
son, Lcroy, thirteen yoars old, dangling
by the neck from a slip nooso attached to
one of tho joists in the cellar. He was
dead beyond doubt. He had hanged
himself with . small rope, which he
had fastened j a joist near tho window.
Th noose vt&t only three feet from the
ground, nd tho boy when fouud was stooping,
his know almost touching tlio ground.
Mr. Currier said he did not ballcvo that
Leroy had commiUttd suicide, and could not
imagine tho raaaon. The lad was a pupil
in the secondary school at Ninth and Carpenter
treat. lit had spoken to hit father
in iht morning several times about a fishing
trip, but Mr. Currlar bad dissuaded
him from going oa acooaut of tho rain.
The boy did not saom to be disappointed.
He went down stair at about 1 o'clock,
and was then in good bnor. Tharo is a
irosumptton that in paotitog some
csper with Mm sooi he bwme in
