CHICAO '8 CUANCtCS .IMi'ROVtNCr.
Wasiiisoton, Feb. 2210 a. ni.
Chicago will probibly receive tho Demo
cratio Convention, which will meet about
the 20th of June. The Western members
of the National Commlttoj and Influential
Western Dun icrats who have been drawn
hero by its me 'ting are entirely outspoken
on the tariff question. They gay that tho
only fault in Mr. Morrison's b it ia that It
does not go far enough; thai the tariff Is
the on Issue In the West, and that the
people out there are alive to the question.
To avoid it would be sulcldo for the party,
tbey (ay, and the only way to success is not
only to make tariff reform the issue, hut to
discuss it In the moat positive and radicV,
"What about Ohio?' your oorrnspon U
ent Inquired of some Illinois and Indiana
men who wero talking to the effect ataied
" 'Wo don't count Ohio In the nfcet e loc
tlon as a Democratic S ate at all. It will
undoubtedly go Republican and wa are
willing It should. If we make a. proper
platform, square ami honest on tbi tuiuf
AlKi). ILLIMHK, SATUUDAV
can. without Ohio, and of eourae we
expect nothing from Pennsylvania. If
there should be a abl ly-ahaily and evasive
platform on the tariff, we should loao the
election, and if we apeak out honesty we
can carry It without Ohio. '
" 'What do the Eastern member of the
National Committee aay to this kind of talk,
or are they permitted to bear It?' your cor
" 'bh, yes, theybaveto hearlt Our
people think this a good time to apeak out.
I have not heard any Eastern members ot
the convention express themselves, be
cause I am not a member ot tho conven
tion myself, but I am told they do Dot any
much. Tbey teem to think the party
has not got much of a chance. Wewid
show them about that if thoy will ttlve us a
chance whin the convention meets.'
"The Eastern men say that the Morrison,
bill will not pass. Some of them, like M.
Hewitt, aay il ou'.'ht not to pass, but I
know better. It Is ifolng to pass in the
House, and I shou d not wonder if it
ihould pass in the Senate. If It fails It will
be because the committee weakens It too
much. I hope they will not make that
blunder. On a solid and unmistakable tar.S
reform plalform we can carry Illinois; we
are sure of Indiana; we ought to carry
Iowa, where the canvass for governor late
ly c mipleted shows that tho Republicans
have only 'JO, WO majority; wn have a good
chance at Michigan, "

Wasiiimjiov. Feb. 22. The Democra
tic National Committee ia Just up in the
point of going into session for tho purpose
of seleciing the time and plaoc of the next
National Convention. There is a strong
feeling agaipst admitting reporters, and
unless this Is overcome the ' report of the
proceedings will no doubt be late and frag
mentary.. The Cii:ajoans are the most
continent, aud maku the unqualified slate
Went tn ! too convention will co to their
city. They wld not admit thar there Is a
doubt of this. The St. Louis duleu' tiiou
are more quiet, but confident
that they will secure, the prize.
Some of them claim seventeen votes
on the first ballot. Sew York men
believe if tney bad a good working dele
gation here the convention could be secur
ed for Saratoga. One argument thai tho
St. Louis delegates are using against
Chicago Is that it would be unwise for tho
Democrats to take their convention and
consequently their money Into a State
which will without doubt go for a Repub
lican candidate for President. There ia no
doubt that the general talk about the
Arlington this morning favors Chicago, and
that there are more believers than dis
senters in the opinion that both conven
tions will be held in the aume city, but of
course nothing ennrely positive can be
known at present.

There is much truth and a fountain ot

Tbe Tbln Htorj ot an IuipalpalakU
Nkwhuho, N. Y.. Feb. 22. To-day is
the day set for Win. Van Tassel, who died
last fall, to return, according to tbe state
ments of bis family, to bis farm near Twin
Lake, on East Mouutuln, at Central Val
ley, In this county, Hundreds of citizens
from the surrounding country will be on
band to see tbe apparition. Van Tassel
was a plain farmer. He had between 200
and 300 acres on the mountain east of Cen
tral Valley, The dwelling Is situated close
to tbe road and is surrounded by high
woodlands and low valleys. Van Tassel
ra sed a Urge family of girls and boys, most
of whom are now married and living
elsewheie. Two ot the sons are
running Erie railroad trasns and a third
was badly injured on the same road aoina
time ago. Uno daughter married a car
penter of Poughkeepsie named Byron Ba
ker, and the youngest married John H.
II. Hoffman. Uaker, who realdea on the
place, told the reporter that two weeks ago
he was making an axe handle William
Bailey, a son of another mountain farmer,
stood near by. Suddenly they were startled
by agonizing groans In the barn.
"I hastened to where I supposed the
croans came from," said Baker, "and
opening tbe barn door, I saw an animal
which seemed to me to be a apeclea of
leopard darting across the hay mow. I
climbed Into the mow but could see nothing
of it. In one end of the barn there la a
chest which contained many valuables. At
this time I unlocked the chest and found
my father-in-law's fur hat there In one end
undisturbed. I ther. locked tbe chest and
resumed my work. I was not many min
utes employed when Mr. Bailey startled
mo with tho cry of 'Oh, lookl' I looked in
the direction indicated, and, to my
SL'HPHISK AND HonitOK.
I saw my father-In -law, William Van
Tassel, who has been dead since last fall.
Ho was looking from the barn window and
wore the fur hat which I had locked in the
chest only a few minutes before. He also
wore a sheepskin drawn loosely over hia
shoulders. 1 then again unlocked the
chest, and to my utter surpriso found the
fur hat in tbe corner where I had seen It
before. Subsequently when Mr. Bailey and
I were talking about the strango visitation,
we were startled again by a loud voice call
ing, 'James, James, James!' Looking in
the direction of the sound we saw my fath-er-in-law
standing in the yard in front of
the barn wrapped in a buf
falo robe and calling frantically,
'.lames, James, I want my son
James. I imtneiliatelv weut into the
house and Induced James to come out.
When he stood in the presence of his fath
er's ghost, tbe latter addressed him, say
ing, 'James, you must mend your ways
and stop swearing, and take charge of this
farm. I understand that John F. Hoff
man is coming to live here, and I want you
to tell him that I will be hero again on Fri
day, February 22, and if he is here then a
will haunt tbe life out of him. ' When this
was said Mr. Bailey went to the house for
a shot-gun to shoot tbe ghost, but wbon ho
returned and pointed the gun In tho direc
tion of where tbu ghost stood it had
The residents In the surrounding country
who have talked with all or any of tbe trio
say that all tell the atory alike and will not
listen to refutation by tbe incredulous.
Mr. Cooper, of the firm of Cooper A
Barnes, at Central Valley, who
HAD HEAltt) THE 8TOHY,
was found In his store, lie said: "Baker
is the husband of one the oldest of tbe Van
Tassel girls and Hoffman the husband ot
the youngest daughter. The latter was
married against her father's will. Van
Tassel did not live very happy with bis
wife. Tbey wero both about sixty years of
age, and he being sick much of tbe time
became peevish and fretful, and accord
ingly a coolness grew up between them.
Mrs. Van Tassel bad left the farm about a
year before the old gentleman died and
taken her residence with Mrs. Hoffman at
the farthest of tbe Dean mines, in the
town of Highlands. She is however, to
return the farm this spring with ber son-in-law,
Hoffman, who is to work it."

Saukin, Feb. 22. The report of the con
ditional surrender at Tokar is confirmed by
the arrival here this morning of a number
of the garrison who had protested against
It. Stragglers from the garrison are con
tinually arriving and present a woeful ap
pearance. Many have been without food
since Wednesday evening. In an Inter
view with an esenpnd ollloer hn expressed
t lie belief that notwithstanding the strong
force of rebels besieging Tokar the garrison
could have held out tifieen days longer,
lint learning that tho enemy was missing
troops for a determined attack, th short
supply of ammunition remaining caused a
feeling of discontent and dismay among tbe
garrison which it was impossible for tbe
ollieers to dispel, and they finally agreed to
hold a parly with the besieging army for
the purpose of making terms by which
Tokar should bo surrendered on coiwUtlon

London, Feb. 22. The Times' article
tipon thi Lasker Incident saya: "At last
Bismarck has obtained an opportunity to
show his dislike for a country which an
nually robs him of thousands of conscripts.
Congress was ill-advised In sending the
resolution, and Bismarck was ungracious
in returning It, Granting, however, that
Bismarck was right in refusing to praise
llerr Lasker, his organs are wrong in re
viling Minster Sargent. Tbe latter
was only obeying his Government, and
there was no reason why bo should be
held up, in defiance of international cour
tesy and almost ot International law, to the
contempt of the German people. It fa said
that Minister Sir, 'ent is hardly careful
enough of forms and oercraonies to pl.iase a
court so formal as that at Berlin, but a
worse moment to try and induce hlra to
resign could hardly have been ehosen than
the present, when his resignation would
still further strain the relation between the
two countries, which ought to beon ex
cellent terras. "

WASHINGTON IN WALL 8TEEE1
Ward's Htatne of the Father of His)
Country, and Crltlclama Thereon.
Now York Cor. Inter Ocean.
Well, public men'a acta are bound to be
closely and critically scanned. Tbe dear aud
dead George Washington is not exceptional.
He recently weut into Wall street, taking a
position in bronzo on the stops of the United
States treasury building, and we are finding
fault with him.
He Is thirteen feet tall, and yet Is so placed
as inferentially to have emerged from a ten-
foot door to make an address to the specula
tors. The bouse Is only one story high, and
the relative sizes of it and the man carry one
in memory back to big Edwin Forrest
stauding as a noble Roman in front of a
puny stage temple. Moreover, tbe new
statue of Washington la so elevated that his
face can only be looked squarely at from
below, unless a view be obtained from the
upper window of an opposite building.
Try an exierimont with the features of an
acquaintance, and you will see that thoy pre
sent an almost unrecognizable appearance if
you look at them either from above or be
neath. The likeness with which you are
familiar is that which you have derived from
a level view. Thus the Ward statue of Wash
ington is facially all right when aeon favor
ably, but the Wall street men, as they gaze
up in hurrying past, are impressed by a
strange, querulous countenance, as though
the father ot this country was greatly aston
ished and displeased by what bis speculating
sons are doing.
A small, nervous, unobtrusive man stopped
at the same time that I did, to study this
effigy. Ho was Jay Gould. As I eyed him
covertly, aud at length addressed him, a big
ger, burlier fellow edged up to us. This was
a body guard, without which the millionaire
seldom walks the street. Gould was one day
struck by a Major Selover, whom he had
hurt in pocket, and he doesn't mean to bo
caught dofeuseless again. But tho guardian
obligingly let us talk a little.
"What is your opinion of it!" I asked.
"A first-rate statue," Gould replied. "It is
the fashion to make fun of statuary; and
what you say as to the disproportion of this
figure to tbo surroundings is sound enough;
but I dou't aee how it could have been dif
ferent without being worse. Would you have
Washington set up among tho Wall streeters
without being bigger than they are? Of
course not The statue is impressive as It Is
decidedly; and the pose is excellent with
itn attitude of stepping forward, and tbe
right hand outstretched, as though speaking
to the whole of Wall and Broad street, You
think this expression is unpleasant from our
point of scrutiny But just see wfeat he is
looking at Ilia eyes are on the front of the
stock exchange I don't agree with you thai
he seems indignant To me he seems to be
merely puxzled and that's natural, isn't iti"
Gould laughed at his own joke, aud it was
evident that I had quite turned his thought
away from stock jobbing. Ue is an educated
niau of artistic tastes, you know, and when
among the books and art objects of his Fifth
aveuue residence is said to almost exclude
mammon from all consideration. I might
have extended his dissertation on the statue
but for an unfortunate remark.
Terhaps he is wondering whether West
ern Union is going to absorb the Baltimore
& Ohio's telegraph," said L
Gould abut his mouth ilk the snap of an
oyster. Doubtless he was disgusted because
he couldn't casually discuss a statue with a
stranger without Wing, aa he thought, flkW
