LSpecial Telegram to the Globe.]
Washington, Feb. 10. —Among the latest
curiosities of official conduct on the part
of United States marshals, and their depu- j
ties, which have been brought to light by |
the Springer committee, are the summon
ing of the entire \otiBg population of
counties to testify in relation to frauds in
the sonth. This occurred in one connty in
Alabama, and two in Texa«, and the num
ber of witnesses in these cases ranged from
1,700 to 2,000, when, according to special
agents of the government, ten witnesses
would have been sufficient. It was a
method of earning fees.
SWINDLING COMPEOMISES.
In Texas, a district attorney named
Guthridge, compromised a claim of the
government of $50,000 for $5,000, although
the government held a judgment on realty
that would have fully covered the claim.
The defendants only had to pay the at
torney $500 for this favor. He has been
dismissed from office.
The Springer committee has called for
papers in the cases of Ottman and Lewis
for the purpose of throwiBg some light
upon them. Ottman was tried twice for
robbing the treasury of a package contain
ing $-10,000, but escaped by favor of Wash
ington juries and the mysterious influ
ence that surrounded the trials here. Fin
ally, the case was compromised for a pit
tance and the swag divided between the
thieves and attorneys. The committee
want to know the details of the matter.
A New Jersey crank named Lewis be
queathed $1,500,000 to the government
home years ago. Claims of false heirs
were set np and it co3t the government
$400,000 to get the money. Deteotivea
filed a bill in the case amounting to
$27,000, bet a part of this was disallowed
There are so many cases of crookedness in
connection with the law department of the
government that, the investigation com
mittee cannot complete its work for
month?, although its sessions are held
almost daily.
GEN. GBANT ON LOGAN.
The Capital claims to have conversed
with Gen. Grant in his sick room on pol
itics, and says: 'The ex-president consid
ers Gen. John A. Logan as the most avail
bble candidate of alt those named, and one
whom he would not only support himself,
but a candidate whom he would ask all his
friends to support. He remarked that he
had Known Logan from the beginning of
the war, and he culd testify that he pos
sessed the ability, courage, obedience and
endurance of the citizen-soldier of our
great country to as eminent a degree a3.
the most distinguished in its brilliant array
In public affairs, he said, Logan has
courage of hi3 convictions. He assert3
the integrity of his own character even in
his own politioal matters, and that could
not always be said of men in politioal life
and in private life, he added, there is not a
man to my knowledge who stands out so
notably as a type of honesty of purpose
simplicity of life and virtue.
The general further observed that there
were others also who would fill the office
with great ability, men like Edmunds, of
Vermont. But his idea seemed to be that
Logan was more a man of the people. It
was evident that there were those
whom the ex-pre3ident think? it would be
suicidal to nominate, and who, in fact,
would not receive his support. He did
not wish to be specific, but would only say
it might be wiser in making the nomina
tions to regard the harmony of the party.
POSSIBLE INJUSTICE DONE DOUGLASS.
The statements that have come from
the department of justioe seem to have
done an injustice to ex-Marshall R. M.
Douglass, of North Carolina. Douglass
was investigated some time ago by two
special agents, Bowman, representing
the department of justioe, and Farney
representing the treasury. Bowman testi
tied npon the Springer committee yester
day that during the whole time that
Farney was nominally attend
ing to the investigation he
was so drunk as to be absolutely incapable
of asking a question or understanding an
answer, and that when Bowman returned
home he reported the facts and refused to
join with Franey iu] a report, but made
one of his own. Bowman testified that in
stead of withdrawing his books, Douglass
offered every facility for making hiB in
vestigation and when Douglass was in
formed that his deputies were making
charges that the department would not
allow, he made them point out these items
and with his own hand drew a line of eras
ure across them, but there left untouched
a good many fraudulent items which
Douglass knewabont and Bowman thought
he ought to have made his deputies verify
every item after he found what they w ere
doingr Since then frome dispnte|with the
department of justioe has occurred and
Douglass refused to furnish certain book*,
which he claimed were his private account
books, but he states that he furnished all
his official aocount books and, farther
more, that he sent hi3 accounts up here
be settled and they are stopped in the
treasnry department. They are in the
hands of Fnaey, above mentioned, who
will not audit them out of spite. Doug
lass says that while he was marshall, he
was taking two convicts to the peniten
tiary when one of them, a
notorious desperado, esoap9d and he
never succeeded in oapturing him, but^his
successor, Tom Keogh, late secrerary of
the Republican national convention was
now successful. He caught this fugative
from justice and made him one of his dep
uties, and so retains him. He performs
all the duties of a deputy marshal, except
that a feeling of delioaoy deterred him from
going into the court room of the jadge
who pronounced on him tho sentenoe he
had never undergone. Mr. Douglass says
there are 60,000 white Republicans in
Ncrth Carolina, to say nothing of the col
ored ones; and, but for snoh soandals as
this, and divisions in the party the Repub
licans might hold the state easily.
DELATED WESTEBN MAIL.
Twenty thousand pounds of mail mat
ter from Chicago and the west arrived in
this city this evening. This inolndes let
ter!' an! papers covering dates of the 6th,
7th and 8th. The latest Chicago papers
received here np to noon today were those
of last Sunday. Yesterday morning's
mail will probably arrive at a late hour
to-night. A letter which Congressman
Dunham mailed to his wife from Chicago
on the 5th just was handed to Mrs. Dun
ham this^evening, several hour3 after her
husband's return.
A LOGAN LOVE FEAST.
The meeting of the state central com
mittee in Chicago this week will be a gen
nine Republican Logan love feast. Greene
B. Ranm was at the capital Friday and
Satarday of last week, trying to disoover
how many Illinois politicians would at
tend from this point. Gen. Raum is a Lo
gan man and he is anxious that Logan
shall be elected to the presidency, for in
that event he will endeavor to succeed
him in the senate. Clever politician here
wonder at Logan's impudence in allowing
his name to be so freely used in connec
tion with the presidency.

A FLOOD OF BILLS.
Washington, Feb. 10.—More than
4,500 bills, most of them of a private na
ture, have been introduced in the house.
I ess than 200 have been acted upon by
committees and reported to the house. To
morrow another opportunity will
be offered to increase the number of
pending legislative measures.
BILL8 THIS WEEK.
Randall will oall up the naval appro
priation bill on Tuesday. It is probable
that two days will be occupied in its con
sideration. Tho bill to prevent the
spread of contagious diseases among cat
tle, it is expected will be brought before
the house for further disot.s-*ion in the
latter part of the W66k, and it is barely
possible the shipping bill will also
be reached in oommittee of the
whole by Thursday. In view of the for
midable opposition already manifested
against the naval bill, the members inter
ested in its passage are apprehensive it
will not command a majority vote.
EETIItEMENT.
The retirement of Gen. Alfred Pleas
anton as brigadier general will be the
question to be considered on next Friday,
••private bill day." It is believed the bill
will pass without serious opposition, as
the committee in making the report re
counted the brilliant and effective service
of Gen. Fleasanton in the Mexican war,
and made a strong report in favor of his
retirement with the rank specified.
COMMITTEES WILL BEPOBT.
The committees of the house have a
number of important measures on their
dockets for oonsideration this week. The
ways snd means oommittee will hear the
! arguments of business men on the various
phases of the proposed tariff legislation.
It is believed by the members of the oom
mittee, that Morrison's bill will not be re
ported to the house for three or four weeks.
The public lands committee expects to
take action this week on bills to provide
for forfeiting portions of the land grants
of the Northern Pacific and Atlantio and
Pacific railroads. The coinage, weights
and measures committee will probably re
port a bill providing for the withdrawal
of trade dollars from circulation.
A SQUABBLE ANTICIPATED.
The foreign affairs oommittee has re
solved to insist that the house should re
fer to it the correspondence received from
the state department last week, to relieve
the prohibition on American pork in for
eign countries, on the ground that the
question Is one of treaty obligation. The
commerce and agricultural committees,
however, both claim jurisdiction on same
subject and the question of reference will
probably give rise to a spirited discussion.
The senate is not likely to reach any
measure of national importance this
week.
POSTAL BECOMMENDATION.
QThos. G. Smith, of the postoffioe de
partment, who was detailed by the secre
targ of tho treasury, to examine and re
port upon the postal methods of foreign
oonntriei ha3 completed his labor and pre
sented this report. As the result of his
investigation he recommends the follow
ing changes in our postoffioe system.
There are, he says, in round numbers
48,000 postoffices each a receiving and
disbursement offiae. Of these 6,500
do money order business acd 41,500
collecting revonue from stamps only.
Each postmaster is authorized to return
his salary and authorized expenses from
the revenues he collects. I would disoon
tinue a direot accounting with the 41,500
postmasters, supplying them with a limit
ed stock of stamps on credit, and requir
iug them to purchase at a designated
money-order office in the vicinity, all they
required thereafter. At such supply offi
ces they would receive their compensation
and authorized expenditures. The re
maining 6,500 postmasters should account
monthly direct to this office, with quarter
ly accounting. The postmaster general
cannot be informed of the receipts and
disbursements for the first half of the fiscal
ysar until the last quarter has commenced,
and the liabilities under his ooutrol for
entire year therefor has been incurred.
With monthly accounting he could be ad
vised of the revenues and expenditures of
within thirty days from the expiration of
each month. Work of posting and stating
the general post office accounts now re
quiring thirty-three clerks, would be dis
pensed with, when the accounts under pre
sent system were closed, while the business
of the stamp and finance division of the
assistants offiae be largely reduced. Smith
suggests that a return to fixed salaries will
reduce the labor of post-masters, with a
record of pieoes handled or stamps can
celled in each quarter, with fixed salaries
in even dollars,! could be established,
to be [raised or lowered as business is
increased or deoreased. He thinks the
benefits of the money order system can be
partially extended to the 41,500 smaller
postoffices by furnishing, as stamps are
furnished, a fractional note of convenient
denominations, less than $1, payable at its
face value at any money order offioe, thirty
days after date, stamped thereon, when
sold by the issuing postmaster, and after
such date to be redeemable at Washing
ton, at a fixed disoonnt or to be absolutely
void, thus keeping it out of general circu
lation. This note is to be issued without
fee, being simply a substitute for stamps
in remitting.
Time Shortened.
St. Louis, Feb. 10.—Commencing to-day,
the Missouri Pacific ra'lrcad shortened its
through sleeper service between here and San
Francisco, and wiil hereafter make the run in
less than live daj s. These sleepers go via tho
Iron Mountain, Texas Pacific and Southern
Pacific route, and run daily, leaving here at
9:20 a. m., and is attracting so much attention
that the company is frequently obliged to add
another car to accommodate the travel.
Association Formed.
St. Louis, F3b. 10. —A mutual benevolent
society was organized here to-day for the coloni
zation of Jewish refugees from Russia, on lands
in the west, to be acquired from the govern
ment. A large number of carpenters met this
afternoon to consider measures for a complete
organization of their craft. The wood engravers
also held a meeting and concluded to organize a
union.

CRIME.
A SON MUBDEBS HIS FATHEB.
Uniontown, Pa., Feb. 10.—Last night, at
North Uniontown ship, three miles east, was the
scene of a brutal murder, the -victim being an
old man sixty years of age named Alpheus Wil
son, and the murderer his son Frank. The two
had been drinking together and had a quarrel,
which ended in the father ordering Frank to
leave home. The latter complied, but in ten
minutes returned and called his father outside.
The old man started for the door, but before he
could reach it, Frank drew a
revolver and shot him dead. The parricide
then went to the house of Dennis Springer,
a short distance away, where he remained all
day, threatening to kill anyone who attempted
to arrest him. This evening Sheriff Sterling
and two constables went to Springers, snd after
some little trouble captured him, but not before
he attempted to shoot the officers. On the way
to the jail he passed his fa: her's house. His
mother came out to see him, and he told her
that he intended killing the old man, and was
intoxicated when the deed was done but it made
no difference.
EEVOLT IN CRETE.
Constantinople, Feb. 10.—A revolt has
broken out in Crete, ia consequence of a Turk
ieh attack on tho privileges of the Greek patri
arch. The leading Cretans declare they cannot
obtain redress, and have therefore taken to
arms. The Porte sent orders to the authorities
at Smyrana and Salomca, to dispatch to
Crete all the available sold\er6, to the num
ber, at least, of 5,000. The Porte is sending
troops to El Hedjaz, Arabia, where emissaries of
Elmahdi are fomenting disturbances.
TROUBLE OX THEBORDER.
A Band of Mexican* Expected to Cross the
Rio Grande into Texas After ino Mur
derers, but Met with a Warm Recep
tion.
San Antonio, Fob. 10.—Trouble is appre
hended r* £*gle Pass, and the authorities have
bo m in secret, communication with Gov. Ire
land. Enough is known to warrant the assertion
that the sheriff of Maverick county anticipates
a raid from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande
and is anxious for reinforcements. Capt.
Shirly, of the Texas ranges, has been tele
phoned for with all the troops at
his disposal. United States Marshal
Gosling is a!so wired to for armed assistance.
The raid is doubtless for tho capture of two sus
pected criminals held at Eagle Pass, whom the
American extradition agent refuses to surrend
er, in view of the recent riling of the secrotary
of state, in the ca»»e of the trouble with the al
leged train robbers. The prisoners being held
are accused by the Mexican authorities of mur
dering Manuel Rodyguez, at Sanagosa, Mexico,
on the 7th inst. The deceased was shot early
in the morning, five buckshot taking effect in
hit head and the upper part of his body, dying
in ten minutes in great agony.
The murderers were trailed to Pkdora
Negras, where they orossed into
Texas. Rodyguez wan a prominent mar chant
and an influential citizen, and his friends are de
termined to bring the assassins to justice by
force of arms if necessary. Marshall Go sling
leaves Sari Antonio with a posse by the first
train for Eagle Pass, where the invaders will be
received with ball and buckshot, should an at
tempt be made to cross the river with aa armed
force, or to capture tho prisoners in the hands
of the Miverick authorities. A correspondent
of trie Gulve-.tou A'* ies accompanies the relief
force.
Hard I,i ves.
Laeedo, N. M., Feb. 10.—The looomotive en
gineers of the Mexican National railway, be
tween Laredo and Saltillo, Mexico, have or
ganized as a body and will this week present to
the company their resignation en masse unless
some protection is guaranteed them against ar
rest, and indefinite imprisonment in Mexico,
when in discharge of their duty they inadvert
ently run over and kill a Mexican who careless
ly gets upon the track. The determination is
brought about by the case of
tho unfortunate Engineer Gardner, who
several weeks ago, ran over and killed a Mexi
can walking across one of the railroad bridges,
near Saltillo, and who has ever since been incar
cerated in the jail at that city. The engineers
say they are require! to run on schedule time,
and it often happens that it is not in the power
of the railroad appliances to stop in time to
preyont running over the dare devels who get
on tho track immediately in front of the loco
motive.
Reception to Archbishop Ryan.
St. Louis, Feb. 10.—Quite an elaborate re
ception was given Arc hbishop Ryan by the cler
gy and laity of th<s Catholic church this after
noon, at the academy of the Christian Brothers,
five miles from the city, in honor of his return
from Rome, where he attended tho recent coun
cil of American bishops About 200 persons
were present. Brother Virgil, president of the
academy, on belialf of the clergy, and Father
Phelan, on behalf of the laity, made brief
speeches, to which Archbishop Ryan replied,
giving a hasty sketch ef his visit to Rome, after
which a banquet was served.
Phillips Memorial Service.
Philadelphia, Feb. 10.—The Wendell Phil
lips memorial service was held this evening in
Spring Garden Unitarian church. Remarks
were made by Robert M. Purvis, Miss Mary
Grew and Edward M. Davis, co-workers with
Phillipps in the anti-slavery movement.
Uncalled for Sympathy.
New York, Feb. 10.—The International
Working People's association to-day, com
mended the assassination of Detectives Blooh
and Klubeck, in Vienna, and expressed sympa
thy with Stall in aher under arrest for their mur
der.
Cares of Life.
As we come to them they are received, borne
with and passed over with no more than a thought,
if we are in the enjoyment of health, but if suf

LATE MINNEAPOLIS NEWS.
LAND LEAGUE MEETING,
Interesting Meeting of Irish Citizens and
Spirited Addresses,
The Hon. Ed. McDamott succeeded in getting
up an attractive programme for last evening's
meeting of the Irish National league. After
piano playing by Mr. Wall, Judge J. B. Quinn
delivered a tine address on the Irish question,
in which he dwelt on the futile efforts of Ireland
to break her chain through revolutionary upris
ings. He reviewed the insurrection of 1798 and
other spasmodic efforts, made by men who be
lie re I in physical force to achieve the independ
ence of Ireland, and pronounced them abortive
failures. The land league agitation had effected
the union of Irishmen throughcut the globe,
and especially in Ireland. The cry that the
Irish people are incompetent to govern
themselves, is no longer believed, as
it was previous to the inauguration
of the league. Thoughtful British statesmen
aro now declaring that Ireland is able and en
titled to govern itself. The league has proved
a great educational force, and he was confident
before the present agitation ceases Ireland will
obtain absolute independence. Nothing short
of complete liberty will satisfy the Irish
people. Mr. Roberts recited the well
itcown poem, "Fontenay," and was succeeded
by P. H. Gibbons, who gave the "Irish Lad
dies." Messrs. Conlyand Shadrick spoke on
"Manhood Suffrage in Great Britain," and held
diverse views on the subject. The chairman,
Mr. McPartland brought the excercises to an
end by delivering a spirited address on the
present aspect of the Irish question in parlia
ment.
THE MABQUIS TSENG.
London, Feb, 10.—Tseng, the Chinese
ambassador, denies that he is going to
Paris to resume negotiations with the
French government on the Tonqnin ques
tion. The last advices from Pekin in
structed him to remain in England until
further orders.
BEFUSED TO ALLOW THEM TO ZAND.
Caibo, Feb. 10.—Admiral Hewitt has re
fused to allow the French and Italian gun
boats at Soakim to land men to proteot
the French and Italian subjects respective
ly. The Turkish squadron in the Persian
gulf will shortly be ordered to the Red
Sea. Elmadhl sent £300 sterling to the
guardians of Mahomet's grave at Medina.
The weather was oold on the roads yes
