Nkw Yohk. Nov. 12. During the past
two or three days it has been whispered
about amoDC the leading members of the
Taratu ny i all organization that Mr. John
Kelry proposed to retire from politics and
that hii mantle would fail upon Edward
K' arncy, one of the si rewdest and most
popular of Democrats in this city. Various
reason are a-si.ned for the move which it
is said Mr. Kelly i atiout to make. For
the purpose of ascertaining whether the
rpor v a entitle 1 to credence,
reporter yr-sierday called upon one of
the big chief's closest, friends, a gentle
man o( wealth aud 1 fluence. The gentle
man in question sa 1:
"Ve. Mr. Kelly does contemplate a
withdrawal from politi s, but I do not
desire, however, to have my name men
tioned in connection with the statement. "
"You know that John generally likes to
speak for himself, and I do not desire to
forestall the statement which he himself
will undou btediy make at an early day."
"Mr. Kelly does not act like a man who
would get tired of political strife, as you
term It," laid the reporter.
"But he is tired, nevertheless," was the
"But why does Mr. Kellv propose to ab
dicate?'' que: led the r p ji tar.
"Mr. Keily Is tire i of political strife.
He wants rest. For some time pa-t be has
ad In bis mind's ere a trip to Italy. You
are doubtless aware of the fact that Mr
Kelly U a devout churchman. Sown time
witijiu the next two or three months there
is to be an Ecclesiastical Council In Rnme,
which will be attended by bishops from al.
parts of tho world. Mr. Kelly desires to be
iu Rom! when that assemblage convenes.
Besides, be Is a gentleman who has cultiva
'eij a taste for fine arts, and he wants to
ft ttify his curiosity by visitinu' art gullet leg
a id places of historic interest in Italy. ' '
' "Ever since Tilden's defeat he has been
the object of constant and malignant mls
epresenlatinns. In the recent flht he
rsrried his register through successfully
a d (Iptnoustraied that his power as a
uler was unshaken. He feels now that
e can retire with honor and secur.) the
rest which he needs. Why should he con
t uue to battleT He is a man of wealth; he
has been honored by bis party and does not
aspire t 'any i olitiea position. Ard be Is not
th- trial physically tuat he was afewyeati
Biro. If you were at Tammany Hall on the
night of tne election It must have been plain
to you that the sore throat of which he com
plained was not all that troubled him."
"Who will succeed Mr. Kelly in the
event of his retirement f ' '
"Mr. Edward Kearney, an old New
Yorker, a gentlemen of great executive
ability, wide-spread popularity, wealth and
high standing in his party. Mr. Kearney't
accession to the leadership would go a long
way toward wiping out the animosity which
Democrats throughout the State and in
this city entertain for Tammany Hall. Al
though Mr. Kearney hag never wavered in
his devotion to Tammany for he bas given
his time and money freely to advance the
organization's interest, still he is looked
upon as a gentlemau of liberal views, and
would be Just the man to unite all the wav
ering Dem-"-tlc factious. "
"Would Mr. Kearney be acceptable to
the ran n and file of Tammauy?"
"Most undoubtedly. He is quite popu
lar in the trganization, as much so as Mr.
Kelley. Besides belne liberal In his views,
he is even-tempered, always pleaiunt in bltt
Intercourse with men and a man who
mingles with the memb ers of the organiza
tion. He Is a D 'tuocrat In Jevery senxe of
the word and possesses certain qualifica
tions which fit b m for the leadership that
even Mr. K lly does not possess. To sum
up the litatlon iu a sentence, Mr. Kelly
desires that Ed. Kearney shall succeed him
as leader. ' '
On his way down town the reporter
met Mr E Iward Cuhtll, one of
M K.'lly'a lieutenants, and men
tioned the latest report concerning Mr.
Kelly. "I don't believe that Mr. Kellv is
going to retire from politics," said Mr.
Cahlll. "In my opinion he will stick."
"How would Mr. Kearney succeed as a
successor to Mr. Kelly?"
"Mr. K arney Is a gentleman whom 1
esteem highly. He is a cood man. But
Mr. Kelly hasn't retired yet and it is loo
early to talk about bit successor," said
Pot kopolla, tbe Maalrat City.
Cincinnati. Nov. 12. Your corres
pondent has Just had an Interview wilh Col.
Nichols, President of the College of Music.
In reply to the question: "How about that
perpetual contract Mapleson claims to have
with the College of Music to give everyone
of Its opera festival ad Infinitum?" the
Col. smiling, said:
"Why, that In absurd on the very face 'of
it. In the Hi st place, we consulted our at-,
torneys when we employed Mapleson, and
we knew precisely what we were doing "
"But Mapleson talks as If be had you
bound by a good, solid contract?"
"Ho must think so, or he wouldn't talk
as be doof, but be Is sadly mistaken."
"Buthe talks as If he had a perpetual
lease on you to employ bis company when
ever you go to an opera festival. "
"That is a delusion that will prove costly
to blm if ho spends any money on It. You
know tho courts never sustain a one-sided
or Ironclad contract. But we bad no such
contract with blm, and If we had It would
be worthless to him. The courts in Ohio
always rule against one-sided contracts. I
have drawn up papers In employing In
structors In the College of Music so strong
that our attorneys rejected them as worth
less because one-sided. Tbe contract Ma
pleson claims to have Is far more one-sided
than those of mine which our attorneys de
cided too strong to be valid. ' '
AstoMapleson'sand Abbey's com

them have better talent and are be'ter as

"1 ean't say Mapleson't company was
better than the one be bad at our own
last opera festival, but Abbey la wonder
ful." "And Abbey Is an Ohio man."
"There you have bit It. He Is enthusi
astic about this festival, and ambitious to
make It the greatest musical event of the
season. I know be has bis heart in It and
means to spare no paint to make if an Im
mense tuccess." g
"You bad tome negotiation! with Maple
ton looking to engaging him for this festi
val?" k "Yes, but his terms were such that we
couldn't think of accepting."
"Then you have negotiated with biin for
each of the past festivals?"
"Certainly; aud there is wherein the ab
surdity of bit claiming a perpetual contract
"How about the Minstrel Festival and
the Dramati: Festival? is there no end to
tbe capacity of Cincinnati to support fes
tivals here in Music Hall?"
"The minstrel festival did you ever hear
of the like nnd tbe trustees of Music Hall
bave rented tho ball for that purpose Just
before our opera festival? Alter our feattvstl
comes the Dramatic Festival, if It comes In
tbe spring, and after it the May Musical
Festival. I think that there is a limit to
tbe capacity of Cincinnati for such giiantic
enterprises, and somebody will find out
tbat fact before long."
Tbe schemes for amusements on the fes
tival scale in Cincinnati are multiplying.
Now comes a rainistrel festival scheme for 2
or three weeks iu Music Hall, commencing
probably on tbe first of January. Augus
tus Frohman, of Madison sqarue Theater.
New York, bas been here this week trying'
to arrange for that event in connection with
Manager R. E. J. Mlies of tbe Grand
Opera. Dates are not yet definitely fixed,
except that tbe festival must begin early in
January, not later than the "th, in which
event It will last two weeks. Froham sayt
tbe festival Is a fixed fact, that be has se
cured Music Hall, and will go ahead, Nich
ols or no Nichols.

ST. LOUS, Nov. 12. -Gen. W. T.
Sherman made his entry into St. Louis
shortly after 8 o'clock this morning. He
came very quietly and without any of the
adjuncts that are supposed to welcome a
bero. The Vandalia train ran In from the
East on time, and after it had pulled up,
tbe tall form of the bluff old general step
ped down ou the platform. In a minute be
was foliowel by two ladles, who were
traveling with bun on the train. Tbe three
went t- a u"1 tge, which was in waiting,
and wrre driveu rapidly away. Tbe ladies
were Mrs. K. P. Tansey aud a lady friend,
who are neighbors of Geu. Sherman
on Garrsoa avenue. The General
alligbted at his hou-e, No. 918 Garrison
avenue, md uas soon in .he bosom of
bis famiiy. A Post-Dispatch reporter call
ed at the residence, and was cordially re
ceived. Til-- ieneralhad a rather strong
and a decidedly black cigar In bis mouth.
He had evidently jut !V..i-:ied his break
fast, and enjoyed it, too. He was looking
much the same as when be visited the city
at the meeting of tbe Army of the Tennes
see. He is evidently In tbe best of health
and looks as young and talks as sprightly aa
he did ten year ago.
"I'm borne at last, " he said, In a way
that showed tbat he was not sorry about his
"You seem to be giad of it?"
"Iam. I am feeling well. My health is
'od. I am going to bave some rest. I
look forward to it with considerable pleas
ure." "Now, General, I would like to; ask
"I don", want to be interviewed," he
said. "I've nothing to say, really noth
ing. I am at home now, and I am going to
"Now don't; I am Jtitt at home. Real
ly, there is nothing I know so much about
that I want to discuss it. ' '
The old veteran was polite, but firm. He
would not taik at all. After some further
conversation, the reporter took his leave.
Qen. Sherman came out to the door, and
as be stood there he looked around aud
"This Is a nice, pleasant ilace. I have
had it fitted up myself. I think it will be
very comfortable. Good day."
To-night at 7 o'clock the members of the
various posts of the Grand Army of tbe
Republic will assemble at Turner hall, cor
ner of Beaumont and Morgan streets, and
forming a line, march iu a body to General
Sherman's rasidence, No. 918 Garrison
avenue, aud there tender blm a serenade.
Probably about six hundred men will

priate air by tbe arsenal band, tbe Gen
eral will be called for and ex-Governor
Thus. C. Fletcher ou behalf of the G. A.
R. will deliver a brief address of welcome,
to which, of course, the general will re
spond. There will then be more music, a
general handshaking, three hearty cheers
of welcome by the old comrades, and the
crowd will disperse. After the serenade
Geu. Sherman will go tbe tbe O ympic

one or two members of bis family, to as

Cleveland, O., Nov. 12. -Birdie Gay
lord, aged 14, is missing from the aristo
cratic home of her parents In this city. She
disappeared a week ago, her departure be
ing the result of reading dime novels. A
month ago Birdie organised a secret society
called the "Sliver Skulls," composed of
boys from eleyen to fifteen years old. Each
boy before admittance to membership bad
to take the following oath:
"Cursed he friendship, cursed be
fathers, mothers, listers, brothers; may
tbe offspring of ouiselves canker, blister
and decay on its dying mother's breast;
may the blood of each breed pestiferous
plagues; may the hair of each fall from bis

brains rot in his skull; the eyes canker and
fall from their sockets and tbe fingers grow
palsied, If we ever bettay tbe secretJof lbs
Skulls. I swear death to our enemies, life
to tbe Skulls."
Jason Caskey, the boy who in some way
Incurred tbe wrath of tbe "Silver Skulls"
a short time ago received a warning written
in red Ink signifying blood. A elariug
skull and cross-bones decorated the paper,
and below was a bloody band with the
word "death" written on It. Tbe docu

ENGLISH OITT RULEr
The Result in Birmingham of Put.
ting Good Men Into PubUo
TFlorence Kelley in National Tribunal
Whatever the mysteries of the govern
ment of citips and towns, the English people
have penetrated it, and there was no dissent
when Mr. Bright announced, at tbe opening
of tte Coin Ion coffee house tbe other day,
that of all the legislation of his time, none
hud prove. I more survioeabla than tbe cor
txiration act of 1835, under which Birming
ham is still governed. Tbe excellence of the
hxal arl migration, proclaimed to tbe new
comer by the superb architecture of the
cent roof the city, is attested in detail
throughout a visit to every part Clean
street, good drainage, pure water, effective
polif, theee things essential though they
are, and unattnined as yet in tbe greatest
American cities are fundamental neceesi
tii, sei.-u iixl as matters of course in Birming-
Iixleod, liad Birmingham no other claim
to th- .mention of American travelers than
thMliat trom Doing a squalid, unwhole
some and disorderly abode, it is now, by it
own effort, rrfietwesed of thrwe four municipal
essential, pure water, clean streets, good
ilraiiitigo and effective police, Birmingham
would yet be one of the most Instructive
places iu all the world to which the adminis
trators of American local government could
betake thomsolree. But thene requisite are
merely the fotindatiou of the Birmingham
municipal hmiw'kwping. Tbey are, as I have
said, matters of course. While an American
traveler nwy look with envy upon tbeee ar
ringeinente, a citizen of Birmingham, proud
of liis town, would point to wholly different
fsnt tires as the reason of his pride.
Happily for us, municipal administration
is at last receiving in America a share of the
thoughtful consideration which it demands.
We may not, as a nation, be quick to recog
nize our defects. The fault of our cities,
however, ran no longer be ignored, and their
gravity is, perhaps, not exaggerated by the
recent contributor to Harper's Monthly, who
auiiounces that "the government of our cities
is the stumbling block to our civilization."
Under theee circumstance, although the de
scription of a well-governed city is not so ex
citing a theme a the sufferings which I have
rxently dosrrilied, it is certamly no lees sug
gerftive." The government of Birmingham is con
durM by citizens of Birmingham. The the
ory of the government of cities upon the
principal df local self control, subject to cer
tain general restrictions, is tbe same iu Eng
land and America. The difference in result,
so far as I have rjeen able to discover, is the
direct outgrowth of the difference between
the ptuple governed. In England, the
best citizens are proud to hold local
offious, and their fellow men vie with
each other in doing honor to faithful
guardians of this vital trust In this
statement there is no exaggeration. Mr.
Chamberlain, now member of parliament
and president of the board of trade, was
several times re-elected mayor of Birming
ham, aud bis fellow citizens, proud of bis
career and grateful for his local service, have
erected a charming shaft in his honor in the
STiace anion tr tha miinictrutl ruiilHtnm, Vn
many steps removed from this stands the
siarne of Mr. Joseph Wright, whose sole
claims to distinction is his long and faithful
Service of bis native Birmingham.
Criticism of local measures is not wanting,
nor Ls it confined to the local press. Every
Englishmen, rich or poor, wise or dull,
knows that the law, once made, will be en
forced, be that law general or local; and he
watches tbe law-maker with careful criticism
in consequenoe. The position of the mayor
and corporation ls no easy one, for tha
Englishmen is a proverbial grumbler. But
faithful work is honored by profound respect
promptly expressed in social distinction, fol
lowed sooner or later by long cherished fame.
Under these circumstances there is keen
stimulus to public- service, and local aelf-goveri"'--'!

The following story ls told of an English
nobleman, recently deceased: Tbe duke was
once in church when a collection was an
nounced for some charitable object The
plate began to go round, and the duke care
fully put his hand into his pocket and took
out a florin, which he laid on the pew before
him, ready to be transferred to the plate.
Beside him sat a little snob, who, noticing
this action, imitated it by ostentatiously lay
ing a sovereign alongside the ducal florin.
This was too much for his grace, who dipped
his hand into his pocket again and pulled out
another florin, which he laid by tbe side of
the first The little snob followed suit by
laying another sovereign beside the first His
grace quietly added a third florin, whioh was
capped by a third sovereign on the part of
tbe little snob. Out came a fourth florin to
ewell the duke's donation, and then the little
tuob triumphantly laid three sovereigns at
once upon tbe board. The duke, not to be
beaten, produced three florins. Just at this
moment the plate arrived. The little snob
took up his handful of sovereigns, ostenta
tiously rattled them Into the plate, and then
turned defiantly toward his rival as if he
would say, "I think that takes the shine out
of you." Fancy his chagrin when the duke,
with a grim smile, put one florin into the
plate and quietly swept the remaining tlx
back into his pocket

The disadvantages of riches were never

than by Mr. John W. Mackey, the "bonanza
king." A hard-working man of simple
hnbihi, his favorite indeed, his only amuse
ment had been a couple of hours' card-playing
nightly, the game a a matter of course
being draw-pokor. When his uncounted
millions ured in upon him the rich man
was heard to lament tbe inconvenience of

proving to the world tbat tha pbytical sy

never uses alcohol it capable
of sustaining greater and more protract
ed fatigue than is the physical system of an
equally tound man accustomed to tti ate,
even in moderation. Mr. Keeble had in
mott of hit temperance leuturet it listed
upon tblsfpoint, and generally challenged
his opponents to undertake a test with blm.
Being a man of fine physique bit challenges
were not accepted. Hi) then determined
to exemplify in his own powers of endur

a feat of endurance or walk.

within 443 hours, and to average during the

he would ever succeed, but he said he

of religion and humanity. Yesterday be
finished hit thousandth mile In the allotted
time, apparently as freth and certainly in
excellent spirits and health. A dispute
arose at tbe completion of next to the
last mile growing out of tbe difficulty
of tbe decimal trouble in adjusting
tbe time In the last mile to the tota. dis

tinued walking until the di'pute was set

who happened to be at tbe time In another
part ot tbe cliy, and before the decision,
which was in f jvor of tbe pedestrian, was
delivered, Mr. K eble 1 ad walked 4o0
hours and covered a total 1,025 miles finish
