Jers, there were hundreds of prominent
republicans from all parts of the State in

P.. 'publican editors.
The following account of the proceed
i;igs Is condensed from the report of a lo
:a rtfternr;n paper anything but friendly
o the party as a whole, or to the Kegu.
iar Committee as such:
At eleven o'clock Mr. Filley arose and
Addressed the meeting, lie Ktid that the

issued by the State Central Committee

and tiie success of the Republi

vhh-li had been made by the regular lie
publican Committee of the State, every
rb.st:i. Ie has been placed in the wav of
t'ie unity of the party by a mere fragment
f the liepublieans of the State. This
.:ouiiu!ttce represents the Republican
party of the State, and It is safe to sav
that it i Indorsed bv ninety per tent, of
t.'i Republicans of Missouri.
Mr. I'illi-v read the resolutions incor
porated in the call, which were received
with great applause.
The roll was then called.

When the name of R. C. Crawell was

Mr. Cra well's appeal received his own
Mr. Fiiley then called upon the ."iitlc
in"ii pro-cut to express their views, and a
r'imiier from both wings of the party
ma le lirief speeches in support of jnhit
-ft ion and harmony. Among those who
advocated harmony was Mr. Carrigm s,
of ili - Tenth Congressional District, who
amounted his desertion of the- Silk Stork
1 ig Committee, but said lie was in favor
of joint action above everything else.
J'idge John M. Filler, of Lawrence, one
of the oldest Republicans in the state,
made an address in which he warmly ad
cvated joint action and the unitieatiou
of the Republican party. Mr. Kiska Iden,
I'r is cutii.g Attorney for (iret n County,
lid he was a Silk Stocking, but as re
. ards leadership he cared nothing. If Mr.
Filley was smart enough to manage the
Republican party in this State, and lead it
to victory, he didn't know of anybody he
would rather soldier under. If Mr. Van
Horn was the man for the place he would
support hill). What he wanted was har-;;-)n)
and success, and in order to secure
these he Would sacrhlce his personal led
The Chairman then called the repre
sentatives from the different districts to

I cling among the Republicans in their
localities. ' Mr. Boucher, editor of the
I'uu '. in inl Jvnrmily at Mount Vernon,
Said the feeling in his district was
strongly in favor of harmony and joint
K. R. Shipley, of Springfield, said his
district was solid for united action, lie
believed that the Republicans of (ireene
County would indorse every word that
was said to-dav in favor of li.irmonv.
Dr. L. II. 'Wealherby, of De Kalb
County, said he was strongly in favor of
harmony ami unity, and that nine-tenths
ef the Republicans of his section were in
favor of a joint convention. Those who
were opposed to it were luke-warm Ue
i iblieaus and entirely in the minority.
Lucian V.. Carter, of St. Joseph, read
resolutions of the local committee in
favor of a joint convention.
Messrs. Neiiahiihn and Lacy, of (ias
i onade County, said their section was in
favor of harmony and united action. Thev
were Filley Republicans, but they wanted

Mr. Turner, of Carrollton, Carroll

Mr. liradshaw, of l'ulaskl County, said
he did not belong to either faction, but
he was a Republican, and ho wanted to
see the Republican party of Missouri
united. "(Jive us a united Republican
party in this State, and whether Mr. Van
Horn or Mr. Filley stands at the head of
it, we will support him with all the votes
Mr. (iowell arose ami said that it
might be inferred from his early
remarks Ihr.t he was opposed to
harmony. He was not. "I want
harmony, gentlemen," said he, "and
1 want to say there is harmony every
where else in Missouri outside of St. Louis.
I owe Mr. Filley friendship and I owe Mr.
Van Horn friendship, but I owe nothin"

know upon what terms the Republicans
wanted harmony, if they wanted har
mony the way to do It was to send their
delegates to the Sedalia convention.
"Tlmt is the place to make your tight,
gentlemen. Leave the matter to the Se

light, make it there. "l wish to here pub
licly announce my withdrawal from this
committee; I came here for that pur
pose." I'rof. J. II. Frick, of Warrenton Col
lege, said it was not true that harmony
prevailed everywhere outside of St.
Louis. It did not prevail to any extent in
his section. He was in favor of harmony
and a joint convention.
On motion of Mr. Harrison, of Jackson
County, Mr. Alkhoff, editor of the German
paper at Kansas City, was elected to till
the vacancy created" by Mr. Cro well's
Mr. Filley then arose and said ho pro
posed to tell those assembled, before re
cess was taken, what the regular Repub
licans had done in the past, and what
they proposed to do in the future. He
said that this committee was the only
Republican Committee of the State;
that it was born of the greatest
Republican Convention that ever
assembled ill this State. " You

he aid. "vou took me awav

Mr. Filley then went into a detailed

How Sargent Incurred Bismarck's Dis
pleasure. Nkw Yoi;k, Marvh 11. A Berlin let

a Prussian nobleman, proud of his

an Fnglish Iadv of fortuue, and proud of
his Fnglish, birth. He lives part of the
year in London, basking in the sunlight
f the British aristocracy, and he was

Hi- father hail been for many years a very
popular Ambassador at the Court of St.

sponsibilitics of the Foreign Oillce he
iii.seharg.'d ins lather, jus son deorge,
i'i order to avenge his father, joined the
Liberal opposition against Bismarck,
lie nearly succeeded in making it hot for
himself, for he was on one occasion

hut was acquitted. To Mr. Sargent Von
llunson, who speaks Kngiish, was a god
send, lie instructed mm on all questions
of (ieruian politics, and furnished him
the necessary material for his reports to
the State Department at Washington.
Having gained Sargent's conlldeuce, Vou
Biiuson resolved to lire a big shot against
Bismarck. One day he called at the
American Legation and told Sargent he
had it on the best authority that Bis
marck intended to exclude American pork
from (ierinan markets, ostensibly because
of trichinosis but really because he was
himself a lauded proprietor and a hog
raiser. Upon this Sargent wrote
that very unfortunate letter to Washing
ton, which found its way into the papers,
and so Bunseii succeeded in making Bis
marck mad, which, after all, matters but
little, lie also succeeded in putting an
cud to the friendly relations between the
two countries. Since that time there has
been no personal intercourse between
Bismarck and Sargeut. Bismarck has
snubbed Sargent when he could, and I
believe Sargent has retaliated whenever
an opportunity presented itself. Cer
tainly the (ierman Chancellor was wrong
in not showing the American Minister
how to dispose of his document; but
I lieu it his not Ids business to give lessons
in diplomatic etiquette. There is a much
graver question to lie solved who is
American Minister to Berlin, Sargent or
(ieorge Von Bunsen?

Mr. Charles Holly, the direr who was
employed by tho Texas and St. Louis road

gine. He made two dives, but ouJd see
no traces of it and wai finally compelled
to abondon the search because of the piie
diiver brought there to repair
tho trestlo. Parties who
saw the accident, say that Smith
jumped from the engine into the water as
alio went over, was seen to float among tile
drift for an instant, but tho engine fell
right on top of him and took him to the
bottom jtogother with a large quantity of
drift by which lie was surrounded. The

resumed until the damage to th.e trestle is

Springfield Register: "We understand
that Hon. Fountain E. Albright, of Mur
physboro, is a candidate for the Democratic
nomination to Congress in that district.
It is represented now by Thomas, Republi
can, whose nomination was so bitterly con
tested the last time. Mr. Albright is a gen
tleman otTnie presence energetic and popu
l ir. Ho will have, we understand, uo op
position for the nomination. He is well
knwn In the State as a Democrat of honest
ly and ability, and one who can not only
gain the hearty and unanimous support of
his own party, but also disaffected colored
Republicans, who have been unmercifully
snubbed by the prueeut Republican incum
bent." The Bulletin yesterday enjoyed a
visit fioin Cupt. Win. F. Tibbits, of Denver,
agent of the Denver ami Rio Grande Ry.
The captain is a gonial, entertaining gru
tleman, on the shady side of fifty, who will
make friends tor himself and the riilroad
ho represents, whereever ho goes. Hu is
now on his way home from New Orleans,
hiving "swung around the circle," in the
interest of his company. As an assistant
to his fine descriptive powers the captain
carries with nim a dzen or sophotognphs,
views of the mignfiicent scenery to be seen
on the line of the D. & Rio 0. Rtr. These
photographs are about 24x30, finely execu
ted and give one an idea ot the country
tint could notbs obtain'! 1 in any other way
except by taking a trip over the road.
Language, alone, fails to describe it and
there is n ithing on euth with which to
compare it. Une ot the views in Black
C-tnon, a mountain grge fifteen miles long,
is of Curre Cin'i, or Needle Mountain,
which towers perpendicularly to a height of
3,223 feet from the railroad track. Another
is tho view iu the Grin! Canon of the
Arkansas where the rocks form a solid will
2,504 feet high with only roo:n betw.en
them for the river bed and railroad track.
We mention thess only to give a slight i lea
of the grandeur to be met with in "The
Garden of The G.ids." The roadbed itself
is a perfect study in engineering skill, as it
winds its way higher and higher with each
curve from the valley until it reaches the
summit and crosses the mountain range.
We ought to speak of Manitou Springs,
the Srato2 ot the West and the fu'ure
wittering place of the world, but have not
trace to do it, the climate or the country
justice and will not undertake it.
Another new narrow guage railroad
is seeking to reach Cairo. It is the Spring
field Southern railroad, which is to be built
Uvm Springfield, Illinois, to Jackson Cf'Un
ty, whera it will connect with tho St
Louis and Cairo road over which it expects
to reach Cairo and connect with tho Texas
and St. Louis. The charter has been issued
and papers filed in the several counties
through which it is to pass. Work is
promised to begin as soon ni the weather
will permit. If this project should succeed
it may be that a sufficient influence will be
brought to bear upon tho St. Louis and
Cairo company, by parties interested
with it in keeping the line open, to induce
the company to lcs slovenly in the man
agement of the road so far as the tracks
near Cairo are concerned. It has been
suggested that it would be a nice thing to
permit the St. L is & Ciiro and the Wa
bash, St. Louis & P.icific to appropriate
New Levee street as a road bed, on condi
tion that they protect it from abrasion by
floods. The beauty of the proposed ar
rangement was tllustrated by reference to
the manner in which the Illinois Central
had preserved the portion of the levee it
occupied, taking all responsibility for the
safety of the bank during flood-time up
on itself. But the foolishness of the prop
sition was very forcibly pointed out by a
simple reference to the amo'unt of self-interest
manifes-ed by the Illinois Central, as
shown by the manner in which it had se
cured its track bi'ween here Villa Ridge,
as against the inexcusable wretchedness of
the tracks of the two other roads named,
in this immediate vicinity; and the mutual
conclusion was arrived at that it would be
very unsafe to entrust so important a piece
of property as the city's levee to the tend
er keeping of a corporation or corporations
who were not induced by tho strongest mo
tive, a soulless corporation can haye, self
interest to give reasonable care to their
own property. The city's property is prob
ably safest under city control.
TIim anti-Thomas faction of the Repub
lican party in this district are making a
ridiculous exhibition of themselves in their
excess of pleasure over their little victory
in the committee last week. They regard
the defeat of Cairo iu the contest lor the
Congressional Convention as the first step
toward Thomas' certain defeat in the con
vention; and they regard tho selection of
Carbondalo as Thomas' political death
warrant. It would be cruel to open their
inner sight and dash them from the giddy
bights of insane delight down to depths of
misery that a realization f the truth would
bring them to; but there is no danger of
doing this; the poor fellows are intoxicated
with the thought of having approached
nearer to the public teat, and are blind to
everything that wou!d indicate the contrary.

the convention was mide tht subject cf

made comparatively little effirt to briuj?
ab ut tho selection of Cairo, an i regarded
the selection of Carbondalo with consider
able indifforence, is alio a fact all of
which, taken in connection with a few other
facts, justifies the presumption that Capt.
Thomas' nomination is not at all contingent
upon the place where the nominating con
vention may meet and that thn choice of
Carbondale particularly is not pn judical to
l'u interests. Carbondale is a strongly
pra-Thonm town; it was here Capt.
Thomas was first brought before the
public before all Jackson County ia
stronger for Thomas now than
it was before. In other counties the
samecondition is uaid to prevail. Capt.
Thomas has not been lotting things- take
their own course in his district during jho
last two years. Ho wag not idle. While
his few enemies workod the party soil, he
dropped a seed evejy now and and then,
hither and thither, which sprung into life
and blossomed forth gloriously, unseen by
tho-e who sought his destruction. He
turned everything possible to his political
advantage, not eveu letting the miseries
caused among his constituents by the flood
slip by unutillized. In view of all these
things the confident prediction by leading
republicans here and elsewhere in taa dis
trict, that the Captain will go into the con
vention with the delegation of seven of the
ten counties instructed in his favor those
of Alexander, Pulaski, Johnson, Maisac,
Pope Union and Randolph and that ho
will be nominated on the first ballot, is not
unreasonable. It is very probable that the
little victory(?) over which the anti-Thom-asites
flop thrir wings and crow so enthusi
astically now, will turn in dead sea fruit at
what they now think will be their moment
of supremest bliss.
TIIE SLATE WRITING TRICK.
Dear Sm:-Rennit "one of the audi
ence" at Dr. Slade's performance last Sun
day night, to give his idea of the myteri
ous "slate-writing." You can write on a
slate or a piece of papir with certain chem
icals, which do not dissolve in watir; the
writing becomes visible only when subject
ed to "heat." The chemicals may be simi
lar to those usid in luanufacturing 'mvUi-
ble ink." I hose, who took close notice,
saw th it the Doctor, alter unwrapping the
slate, took one of thorn and held it very
close to one of the foot-lights, read tho
iting, and then showed it to the com
mittee, who were standing in tho middle
of the stage. The writer claims that the
'writing" had been on that "particular
shite" all the time, anil on being subjected
to the heat of the fuotliht, it became visi
ble to the eye. It the committee had in
sisted on looking at the slates, themselves,
as snon as they were unwrapped, they
could have seen no "writing."
lo any body having some knowledge of
chemistry, these tncki ceasy to be "mar
velous." Tho writer claims, furthermore,
that those slates, tho pitcher, too, perhaps,
and the other "paraphenalia" belong to the
Doctor, and are part of his stock in trade,
and hardly thinks, he would allow the
eouiinittee to substitute others.
The foregoing is one of several reasona
ble expiations that could be given of the
slate writing trick and it presrnts a more
difficult method, thwugh, perhaps, a safer
one, than some others. The "Di's." tricks,
though all well performed, wore probably
all "transparent" to those of his audience
who were ordinarily shrewd anil who watch
ed his movement closely. There is proba
bly not a member of tho c immitto that
aided tho "Dr.," who could not now per
form nearly all the tricks the "Dr." gave,
using similar devices; but it would require
practice to acquire skill. As a spiritualis
tic performance it was "very thin" to an
intelligent mind, and there are probably
few intelligent Spiritualists who have not
a very much stronger basis for their faith;
but as an exhibition of legerdemain and
ocular deception it was much abovo the
