CnAiuJ8TON, 8. C. Feb. 27. 'After fqur
or flvo days of rainy weather tho sky cleared
up early this morning and It is now like a
beautiful sunshiny day In April. Tho Presi
dential train which was scheduled to reach
this city at I) n. in. was fifty-three minutes
1 late. It was received with a salute by tho
artillery and military.
Immediately after reaching the depot tho
presidont and Mrs. Clovoland entered a car
riage which was in waiting for them in front
of tho main entrance. The vehicle was
drawn by four of the finest bay horses in
Charleston. In this carriage were also
Mayor Drynn and Judge Simonton. Tho
presidential carriage preceded and was fol
lowed by detachments of cavalry, started at
once. Tho procession was completed with
the other members of the party, the city
council, committee of reception, etc., all of
whom were also in carriages.
Prom the depot the procession passed down
King street to Broad, along Broad to tho
postofUce, thence to the custom house and
along East Bay to tho Battery, where a halt
was made for tho purpose of viewing Forts
Sumter, Moultrie and other historical points
of interest which lay spread out before them
liko a beautiful picture in the summer sun
light. From this point they drove up town again
past St Michael's church. Hero the chimes
rang out a welcome to the chief magistrate.
After this a second halt was made at the
citadel greon, where the presidont reviewed
tho cadets and tho other military and civic
organizations, which were drawn up in lino
to receive tliem.
The orphans' home was next visited for a
few minutes. The party then returned to
the train, and at 11:10 a, m., left Charleston
for the north. The decorations along the
line of march were very beautiful ; flowers,
palmetto branches, flags and banners being
used in abundanoe.
Tho president and Mrs. Cleveland looked
remarkably frosh and well, showing no signs
of fatigue after their almost constant travel
ing. Thoy appeared to be much pleased with
the heartiness and cordiality of their most ,
enthusiastic reception here.

the late Metropolitan bank, have been in
dictedthe former on tho charge of misap
plying $234,V8S of the funds of the bank, as
heretofore published, and tho latter on sev
eral counts, the most important of which is

dition of the bank December 7, 1887, to the
comptroller of tho treasury. The cases

Hopkins' Sentence Again Postponed.
Cincinnati, Fob. 27. Judgo Sage and
District Attorneys Burnet and Bruce at a
consultation Friday afternoon docided that
Hopkins should not be sentenced immedi
ately, and tlint it would be best to delay his
sentence for a week or two, until there is a
favorable change in his condition, so that he
can take a trip to tho penitentiary. Hopkins
Is, therefore, spared the trying ordeal for a
few days longer, during which ho will re
main the guest of Jailer Williams. Whether
bis health improves or not he is averse to
joining Harper, whom ho declares is his mur

vinced that he was imposed upon as stated.
He claims that tho object of tho trick was to

then largo estate when he died. Mrs. Worth
man, who Is quite wealthy, declares that it is
a case of money blackmail.
Smallpox in Havana.
New Youk, Fob. 27. Advices received
here from Havana under date of February
10, are to the effect that smallpox is raging
in Cuba. A protest from tho board of
charity of Havana to the mayor points out
the fact that between May of last year and
January 1888, 2,000 people died of the dis
ease, while 4,000 were stricken with it
throughout tho island during the same
period. Regala and Ouanabacoa, at the

Venorufllms Think the United State
Wbiiinqton, Feb. 27. Tho last news re
ceived by Manuel T. Olavorria, consul gen
ral of Vonezuela in tho United States, is
that tho invasion of tho English on Venezue
lan land not only continues but it extends
openly, and will reach the territory of Yu
ruari. On the 29th. of November there was
proposed in the colonial legislature of Dem
lnorora tho construction of a road, which

would extend up to the limits of the colony.
In tho course of tho argument it was said
that tho district Yuruari was included in
the limits. The attorney of the queen said
so, and urged tho measure. The project was
adopted. An armed force was sent upon
Yuruari, and no resistance was feared, be
cause the natives of Venezuela there did not
exceed one hundred and tho others nro En
According to the decree of tho governor
of Demerara of December .'11, 1887, the
validity of a contract made with the govern
ment of Venezuela for the opo linjj of a rail
road from Cindad Bolivar to Guacipati is
not recognized. So the English, it is said,
do not content themselves with the posses
sion of the mining territory of Yuruari and
the Orinoco river, but up to Bolivar City.
Arthur W. Roudler, who has been consul
of Venezuela at Boston since 1831, says ho
knows all that territory which has bee.n
stolen, and considers England's action most
"Surely tho United States," he says,
"will have something to say about it" Ho

A CLOSE CALL
A Telephone Lineman's Experience at St.
St. Lotus, Feb. 27. Robert Archibald, a
lineman of the Bell Telephone company, mot
with a horrible fate Friday evening. It had
been raining all day and the lines were
working badly. Archibald was sent out
f rem tho central station to prepare a line on
Fifth and Pine streets, and had climbed half
way up a sixty-five-foot pole when he re
ceived a shock from the heavily charged
wires and fell backward. Ho was caught by
a bunch of wires and'hold fast, his hood hang
ing downward. A large crowd gathered in
a few minutes, but no one seemed to know
how to get tho poor fellow down.
Finally the truckmen of the No. 6 engine
house were notified, and responding
propmtly with their Hayes extension truck,
they ran up the ladder to where tho poor
lineman was hanging, but before relieving
him took the precaution to cut the wires !
with insulated shears, as the lines were all '
heavily charged through contact with cross
ing electric light wires. Archibald was un
conscious and his legs and right side were
frightfully burnod. He was taken home in
an unconscious condition, and his recovery j
is considorod impossible. He is twenty-six '
years old, unmarried and was an experienced

CniCAOO, Fob, 27. Representative Pro
hibitionists In this city are considerably
chagrined over the fact that the date set for
the National Democratic convention, nt St
Louis, is tho same upon which tho National
Prohibition convention will assemble at
Indianapolis. Thoy fear that the importance
of their own gathering will be overshadowed
by that of the Democrats, and that the press
will have but littlo space for the doings of
of the cold water people. It is not improba
ble that an effort will be made to change the
date of the Prohibition convention to some
time in July.

WARDENS AND MANAGERS OF PENI
TENTIARIES FORM ONE.
Its Objoct Is to Keep Up the Prices of Tots,
Funs, Stovo Utensils nnd Other Kinds of
Hollow Wnre, Nine-Tenths of Which U
Manufactured by Convlot Labor.
Auiant, H'. Y., Feb 27. One of the most
novel of all pools or trusts that has been
formed is the hollow ware pool which has just
been renewed by agreement of the wardens
or managers of the various penitentiaries,
where almost all tho hollow wore manufac
tured in tho country is made.
Nine-tenths of the pots, pans, kettles and
itovo utensils are made in the states' prisons
at Columbus, O,, Jefferson villo, Ind., Ches
ter, 111., and Auburn, N. Y. Some nine
hundred prisoners aits there employed in
making hollow ware. So far as is known
there is only one hollow ware factory outsido
tho prisons. That one is nt Medina, O., and
employs only thirty-four men. Up to last
rummer there was nn agreement between tho '
managers of tho hollow ware industries in
tho various state prisons that thoy would
not lot the price fall below a figure that
would bring back the cost of tho raw
materials, with something for the labor of
But tho hollow wore market became over
itocked and tho western penitentiaries cut
under tho Auburn penitentiary by reducing
tho pool rate. The New York convicts were
thus undersold in their own state. It was
easy for tho New York prisons to meet this
cut, as thoy have to pay no wages, and tho
capital of the whole state is behind them.
It does not make much difference to anybody
but tho storekeeper whether tho convi ct
mado goods are sold over or under the cost
of the raw materials. So tho New York
prisons cut rates, too, and thare was an inter
itate prison hollow ware war. The tin and
kottlo peddlers throughout the country re
joiced at the low rates, and the prisons lost
At Auburn, in October, there wero 1C9
convicts making hollow ware, and their
earnings were a fraction over five and throe
fourth cents a day. Previous to that, on
tome kinds of hollow ware the price obtained
by tho state did not pay for the material
used. Tho folly of conducting business in
this way appeared to tho various wardens
and managers and simultaneously thoy be
gan to raise price? and stiffen their ratea
In November tho avetoco earnings of the
Auburn convicts who mado hollow ware
were twenty-threo cents a day, in December
a fraction over thirty-four cents and last
month thoy had risen to thirty-five and two
third cents. The pool idea occurred to
the western men and thoy sot to bringing it
Conferences have boen held between the
wardens and manager's who have charge of
the manufacture of hollow ware and within
a fow weeks thay have arranged to put up
the price still more. They may go on stiff
ening ratea until the convicts' earnings will
be equivalent to a dollar a day or more,
which will bo so much gain to the taxpayers
of the respective states. The only limit to
Increased prices will bo that outside hollow
ware industries will be started should prices
go to high, but it would be easy for the
prisons to cut prices again and kill off com
petition. Tho wardens and managers don't
call this a pool or trust, but an understand

THE C, B. & q ENGINEERS.
Probabilities of Inaugurating a Hitter and
Chicago, Feb. 87. It is understood that
Chiof Arthur, of the Brotherhood of En
gineers, will make ono lost appeal to tho
officials of 'the Chicago, Burlington & Quinor
railway, and if thoy do not accede to the de-,
znands, the order inaugurating a. bitter and
determined strike will bo issued. Just what
effort this will havo is a mere matter of con
jecture, but there is one thing certain, th
order will bo obeyed by nine-tenths of tho
engineers and firemen on tho entire Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy system. There are be
tween eight hundred and one ' thousand en
gineers and firemen on tho various branches
of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy system,
the great majority of whom, it is said, are
inombors of the Brotherhood of Engineers
Tho circular letter 6ignod by the respective
managors of tho vnrious branches of tho
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy in which
they toko issue with tho onginoers and fire
men on all the most important questions and
which has been sent out by tho company, is
regarded by many of the engineers as a bluff
and that rather than see thorn strike, the
company will make concessions. Tho gen
eral impression last night, howover, seemed
to be that a slriko would occur and that a
long and severe struggle would follow.
THE ANDOVER DIFFICULTY.

hearing of the case against tho professors ac
cused of heterodoxy, to introduce an affidavit
containing certain amendments of fact to bo

Mr. Charles Theodore Russell, of counsel
for the professors, objected and an animated
discussion followed, cue short by Judge
Allen, who declared that tho proceedings
would U irregular.
After further discussion by counsel tbo
"I am free to say, Mr. French, that I shall
moke a decision that shall bo contrary to
that affidavit. I do not believe that tba
visitors, after hearing tho wholo caso and
understanding it as fully as those of us who.
havo heard it do, would make that affidavit,
and for that reason I don't think thut it Is
a proper paper to go on file. I shall not re
ceive that papor,"
Tho result of tho hearing is regarded as a
victory for Professor Smyth on tho question
of what record of tho proceedings before tho
