it Is just such mistaken leniency which in
the end tills our jails and prisons. When a

olence whicb refuses to make bis crime pub
lic and forbears to mete out, to hi;n the pun
ishment he desi rve-. Our police wen- anx
ious to arrest the thief, and we.ro much dis
satisfied at not receiving the necessary au
thority. They do not desire to become a
party to such business, and the young man
in question must not attempt any of his

THE UTICA CONVENTION,
"Oath" Attends and Goes Away Over-

lie Goes Into Ecstasies Over Blame's Big
TSpecial Telegram to the Clobe.|
New York, April 25.—1 went to the Utica
convention on the 2M of April. The last
time I went to a convention at Utica, Chester
A. Arthur arose as the chairman of the
convention and as chief of the New York
city delegation, and helped to tie the dele
gation to Chicago up SO that it had no free
exercise of its vote, but was compelled to be
tiic register of the ambition and resentments
of Conkling; Cornell and Piatt, Arthur,
John T. Smythe, Dennison and
names now forgotten were foreman and hired
people in the scheme. There began the great
emeute which led to the death of Garfield and
procession of bitterness ever since.
I saw a convention of some 500 delegates
withno bosses come tiling into an Opera
house. The only women I saw present were
iv two of the upper private boxes.
A large audience was in the gallery,
which seemed almost a duplicate
of the delegates on the floor. I never saw
tli«- equal of this convention for manly ap
pearance, good behavior, and a mixture of
vigilant attention and self understanding.
Bosslsm being out of ft, (here was naturally
perfect good nature and courtesy. One boss
among men is like one shark and a small
boy. He inspires hostility and grows savage
with his own power. There was not a dis
courteous thing said in this convention,
and the two men recognized as leaders
were Miller and Roosevelt. They were' only
recognized by a sort of assent wholly apart
from partronage. President Arthur has
withheld the partronage from Senator Miller
in the true < lass fas hi on. ami t lie re lore tite talk
about Miller as a Cass is gratuitous. Miller
i.a- not the years of a Cass. He is only forty
six years old, and Roosevelt, who applaud
ed him warmly whenever he spoke, as if they
both disclaimed rivalry or hostility, is
probably not over twenty seven.
The moment the bosses broke up, the
leaders in New York politics became young
men. It is this old and hardened, yel
rapacious trade, which seeks to consolidate
its power like dying kings. A cLange of
outward carriage of countenance and of
speech marked this convention, which find
ing no accustomed boss to hearken lo and
prigglc at or applaud to the echo, engaged
itself in the novel process of reflection and
paying attention to the action of the conven
On the platform, as the chairman of the
committee was jammed Warren, of Buffalo,

Important friend Arthur has hail iv New

Blame beat Arthur, but was foiled of the
full reward of the victory by tbe unexpected
ly large number of delegates who would have
neither Arthur nor Blame. To prevent the
convention from going forth to the world
under the description of Blame's con
vention, Arthur pulled up his tent and
Formed behind Edmunds. Warren formed
this resolution, and it is believed after con
sulting wiih Arthur personally by wire.
Mr. Arthur has taken a deep personal in
terest in the convention. He revised, or
prepared, a. list of delegates, showing him
self to have still the leading chance, which
was published in New York a day or two be
fore the Utica convention. He is still in the
field as a presidential candidate, and his be
lief is that be can disengage from the Inde
pendents and from the followings of others
enough votes to nominate bim. The serious
point with him was not having a majority of
the New York delegation. Of the district
delegates he bad not more than thirty
or 31. There are in all 7:1. If the four dele
gates at large had been named by the Blame
men New York would virtually have beeu a
Blame state. The country had expected this
result. Arthur and Warren prevented
Blame electing any of his friends dolegates
at large, and then began to say that Ed
munds was the best friend that Arthur had in
tin-world, and that these Edmunds delegal s
would be influenced in Arthur's favor by Ed
So Mr. Clinton Wheeler said to me the
evening after the convention, when I was
about to come home. Said he: "Gath,
we've taken the delegates at large from
Blame and elected the men in favor of a
mau who is Arthur's best friend in the world,
Tbe strength of Blame was about 240
votes, as appears from the vote cast for Sen
ator Pitts. The strength of Arthur was
about ISS votes. The strength of the Inde
pendents, with Roosevelt, was 72. In the
convention wen: 407 delegates. Thus when
the Edmunds and Arthur men
united to elect the temporary chairman
they had only a majority of 22.
Blame's friends can see how close he came
to carrying this state, where he never had a
residence and where he has been persistently
opposed in every form and with intense
hatred for the past ten years.

Knives and pistols were drawn, and William
Gibson were shot and killed. The other

and with great diliiculty a lynching was pre

XO BECBETABT OF AOKK'UI.TI-«E.
Senator Plumb failed to secure considera
tion of bis bill making the department of
agriculture an executive department under a
secretary of agriculture, as Senator Senna
pressed a substitute for the bill, creating a
department of industry embracing the divis
ions of agriculture, commerce and manufac
turers under a secretary of industries. The
subject being of great importance time was
given, at the request of Seuator Bayard, for
further investigation into the merits of the
two propositions. It will be remembered
that at the last, session of congress the house
passed a bill enlarging the agricultural de
partment to cabinet proportions, but it was
not acted 'in by the senate, although favor
ably reported by the agricultural committee.
Senator Wilson's speech on the inter-state
commerce question was a carefully prepared
legal argument on the constitutional right of
congress to regulate commerce between the
several states and to require equalization of
freight and passenger tolls and prevent the
pooling system. His views were ably pre
sented and received the commendation of his
TUE TREASURY SOLICITORSHIP.
Considerable speculation is rife as to who
will be appointed solicitor of the treasury, vice
Jnlius Ca?sar Burrows, declined. It is not
likely that Assistant Solicitor Robinson will
be promoted, although his service has been
long and eflicieut iv this branch. Robinson
was the chief support of Secretary Sherman
when Sherman bounced Arthur out of
the collectorship of New York upou
charges of corrupt and inefficient adminis
tration of the oflice, and compiled the famous
report in that case, upon which Arthur was
removed, ahd Gen. Merritt appointed and
confirmed. Arthur may be in a forgiving
mood, but it is certainly a 6trange meta
morphose to witness Sherman calling on
Arthur at the White house, and the friends
of Robinson pressing him for promotion at
the hands of the man he was largely instru
mental in having literally kicked out of the
New York custom house.
Maj. Woog, chief of the finance division
of the Indian bureau, went to New York

may be delivered at Chicago, St. Louis, Kan

WARXER MILLER A3 A BOSS.
Congressman Barr, of Pennsylvania, com
menting on the result of the New York con
ventions, said to the Globs correspondent
to-day: "Warner Miiler ha 3 at last found
himself beaten at every poIuS. He is one of
those fellows who are opposed to political
bosses, unless they are the bosses themselves.
Miller has not ability enougl to be a first
class boss, and his efforts in that direction
have been failures. In my judgment Ed
munds' prospects begin to look brighter.
There is one thing mendoned as being
against him, which is just the reason
why I support him. Some ol the cheap poli
ticians say thet if he is elected they can get
nothing out of him. Now, I believe I can
get him to do anything that is right, and that
is all we should expect from a president.
The burden of their complaint is that he is
an honest man. This country can stand it
if all the offices are filled by honest men. I
notice the same complaint is not being
made about Blame. If Edmunds
6hould be nominated and elected people in
terested in lobby scheme wculd not dare to go
toEdmunds. The nominee may be Arthur,

but one thing is certain, it voD't be Blame.

plafrorm, endorsing the recent decision of
the Tinted states supreme court In regard to
the power of congress to issue legal tender
money in time of pence, declaring that the
function of issuing money should
be taken from tbe banks and exercised
by the goverment; that railroads

government for the benefit of the people,
the labor should be protected by the national
und state authority, so far as to equalize the

to conflict with honest, free labor, that courts
of arbitration for the settlement of disputes
between employers aud employes be estab

of pure breed trotters. This morning the
Globe correspondent was invited by Col.
Pepper to visit his stables, located about a
mile from the city limits. Of course I was
not backward about accepting the invitation,
and wa3 repaid for making the journey by a
sightof some as fine stvck as the country

fore me. "There sir," said the Colonel, 'Is
a horse that cannot be beaten as a coit-get-
ter. His colts are all fast and all bring big
money. Why, the smallest price ever re
ce.ve 1 for one of his colts at weaning time
It is needless to state that Onward stands
at the head of Col. Pepper's stud. He was
foaled In 1575, aud his sire was the celcbrat
j ed George Wilkes, first dam Dolly, dam of
Tbomdale, by BCambrino Chief ;m cond dam,
Fanny, by Ben. Franklin; Third dam by
Saxe Weimar. He is a bright bay, star and
smail stripes In face, and white hind ankles,
fifteen hands and two inches In height and
weighs 1,250 pounds He was never regular
ly trained, the only active work given him
being in the fall of ISSI, when he was start
ed in three races, winning them all and
gaining a record of B:9s££. Col. Pepper
claims that he is much fa<ter than his record
and drove him a half mile recently to a Chi
cago cart in l :08. He represents the two
leading trotting lines that stand out In bold
relief against all others. He is a son of the
best son of Chester. Bysdyk's Hambletonlan,
and out of the besi brood mare of the equal
ly famous Mambrino Chief. His dam,
Dolly, is also the dam of Director, by Dicta
tor, with a record of 2:17.
Madrid' the next horse of interest In the
Colonel's stud, is a beautiful bay. sired by

than flows in his veins hns never before been
met with. He has a record of 2:33.

blood, and is a beauty.
Morgan is a beautiful six-year-old by Al-
monl. His dam is by Brignolo, second dam
Cress, dam of Code. These four :,
comprise Col. Pepper's stud, and to these he
is breeding about 100 of his own mans.
They all trot under 2:30, and all are of the
best blood on the turf.
"Now, Mob, trot out Catehfly."
This iM.-autiful animal is one on which Col.
Pepper stands ready lo stake his pile.
Catehfly is a bright bay, sixteen hands high,
and is a flyer. She has never lost but one
race. Las) pear she started In ten races and
won nine, never losing a heat after the Brsl
race, and distancing with ease the horses
that beat her on that occasion. She has a
record of 2:!'.). Her sin- is Administrator

and the mare can trot as fast OS sbe wants to.
Watch her record."
Col. Pepper has a mile track on his place
and has fifty horses-in training at bis farm
twelve miles from Frankfort.
This afternoon I met Mr. S. C. Pruett. of
Roekville, Ind. He is the owner id' Black

The Disease, it is Asserted, Has Bro
ken out in Washington
Pittsburg, Pa., April 25.—1n Washington
county veterinary surgeons have been exam
ining a disease similar to pleuro pneumonia.
The disease first developed itself about two
months ago on the farm of Robt. C. Vance,
and proved a puzzle to a number of physi
cians called in consultation of the several
cases. Washington County Stock Breeders'
association took the matter in hand a few
days ago, and after a thorough investigation
called in a first class veterinary surgeon,
who made a thorough examination. One of
the young co\V3 alllicted was selected for
dissection, and it was found that the struc
tural changes in the lungs were
similar to those in pleuro-pneumonia, suffi
cient to prove its contagious character. The
body of the cow selected was not altogether a
fair subject, as she had been picked out of
the herd on account of the owner's valuing
her at a less figure than others. The diagon
isls proved beyond a doubt, however, symp
toms of pleuro-pneumonia, and as the bal
ance of the herd are tainted in the same
manner, it was recommended by Dr. Shat,
that the entire district be quarantined until
a thorough official examination is made.
Gov. Pattison was telegraphed the facts, and
it is probable an order will be issued acting
on the doctor's suggestion.
New York, April 25.—The closing of the
Italian opera season at the Academy of mv.sic

Sweet Home," creating a scene of unbounded
enthusiasm. Mapleson, in response to calls,
made a speech promising a brilliant season
next year. He was presented by citizens
with a handsome jeweled testimonial.
Ozax, Ark., April 25.—Chas. Wright,
colored, was hanged at Centerpoint, Howard
county, to-day, for the murder in last July
of Thos. Wyatt, a white man. Wright was
one of a crowd of negroes who attacked Wyatt
in a field and killed him, but not before he
killed one of them. The affair created iv-
tense excitement; several hundred netrroes
were under arms and the whites organized.
The state troops were sent,
quelled the disturbance, and arrested a
large numbers of the rioters. Several
were sentenced to various terms in the peni
tentiary, and Wright received death sen
tence. He admitted being present at the
killing of Wyatt, but claimed he had no
active part in it. He maintained a firm de
meanor to the last and died without a strug
gle. Two thousand witnessed the execution,
including many negroes. All was quiet.
