met their general approval, with the

that Collector Welles of Burlington, Vt.,
will go to Washington this week to use his
influ'-nce to gain Edmunds' support. The
plan had its origin in the fertile brain of
President Arthur's young followers, and
is said to have his countenance and further
ance, which is quite likely, as most of the
present Republican officials are his friends
and supporters. Collector Livingston of
Michigan has been quite active presenting

its success. It was through letters sent here
to urge the friends of Edmunds to ask him to

was obtained. There is only one
thing that the schemers fear, which

A BUFFALO OPINION.
Instances Showing How Cleveland Don't
Serve His Friends.
Special to the Globe.
New York, March 2.— An old Buffalo
politician, who knows Mr. Cleveland very
Intimately, has made public some informa
tion that ma) - be of interest to hungry office
seekers and the public generally. He says:
•'.Mr. Cleveland is not a man to consider
in his official capacity any obligation
he has ever laid uuder by a friend political
or otherwise. If any one goes to
him for official recognition, basing it ou the
ground of favors done, Mr. Cleveland rec
ognizes the favor coolly, adds that it does not
change his official opinion on the public sit
uation and goes on with his writing. That
phase of his character has been illustrated in
bis relations with Buffalo men time and
again. John Bartlett, the railroad agent, is
one of tbern. When Cleveland was seeking
a nomination of governor he got Bartlett to
work in his favor. Alter he became governor

Near Cleveland's Mansion, Suspected of Being
Alkanv. N. V., March 2.— Two men, who
appeared to be acting suspiciously in the
neighborhood of the Towner mansion, where
President-elect Cleveland lives, were arrested
this morn ins at 11 o'clock by Detectives
Dwyer and Morris, by order of the chief of
i police, and taken to the police station here.
They were identified by Col. Dwigbt Law
rence as two detectives named Thomas
Craig an i Theodore Weldon, employed by a
private agency at 304 Broadway, New York.
They refused to tell their business to the
chief of po.ice, and referred to In
spector Byrne to say what it was. They were
taken before a magistrate and committed
for further hearing. The latest report is that
I they are detectives employed by friends of
Cleveland without his knowledge or knowl
edge of the authorities, to protect him from
: the threats of violence that have been made
from time to time during the last two weeks.
After the detectives were committed for a
further hearing, a dispatch was received by
Chief Willard, signed by Inspector Byrnes,
which read: "These men are all right. Let
them go." They were then set at liberty.
Inspector Byrnes arrived on the 2:40 after
noon train, and said that while he knew the
men to be all right, he could not have signed
a dispatch, as he left New York on the 10:30
moruing in company with Col. Murphy,

ANOTHER GRANT SCHEME.
Wealthy Californlans to Bny Him a Vineyard
in the Golden State-
Sax Francisco, March 2. — Gen. GraDt's
illness his brought to light a project which
has been under consideration here for sev
eral months. It Is to bring the general and
all his family to California to live. The idea
was conceived by Gen. Francis Darr,
formerly of New York, a new resident of this
city. Darr served during the war on the
staff of D. C. Buell. The scheme,
in which several of our most
prominent citizens heartily co-operate, is to
buy a large bearing vineyard, baviug resi
dence nnd other necessary buildiugs, and
tender the entire property to Grant as a
loan. It would be deeded to Mrs. Grant.
The vineyard will be under the direction of a
skilled viticulturist. After deducting from
the product a sum sufficient to cover all the
expenses of Grant's household the balance
would be applied In the liquidation of the
mortgage. Several large properties have
been visited so as to select the most suitable.
The Central Pacific railroad has tendered
sp^cbl cars to go to New York to bring the
general with his family ami physicians. All
the expenses of tbe party would be paid.
C 1. Jackson, proprietor of the Evening Post,
bas placed his residence at Napa Soda
springs at the disposal of Grant and party
while the necessary formalities In respect to
the selection and transfer of the vineyard
were being completed. Grant was made
acquainted with the scheme about three
months ago and requested to come and see
before deciding. A dispatch was, however,
received from Grant last week stating it

It was a wicked encounter. Chandler knocks!

the end of ten seconds, it was not a knock
out. In the third round Chandler forced the
fighting for the time and pounded and cut
Glover's face fearfully. Glover, however,
made the most remarkable rally, and
in the fourth round knocked Chandler
senseless for thirty seconds, winning
the tight. It was thought for a time

which Burke showed superior ability both In

Washington, March 2. — The preparations
for the inauguration of the president-elect, so
far as congress is concerned, were placed in
the hands of the senate committee of which
John Sherman is chairman. In the matter
of admissions the committee agreed to give
each senator five admission tickets to the
senate gallery and inaugural stand, and two
tickets to each member of congress.
This entitled members of the house
and their families, but it appears
was broken when the house of representa
tives, in the matter of accommodation, was
given a place in the rear of tbe diplomatic
corps and officers of the army and navy.
To-day the snub thus thrust upon the house
broke out in a violent form and the Demo
j cratic linen was washed in open daylight.
Mr. Mills, an excitable Texan already of
fended because of Cleveland's silver posi
tion, offered a resolution to tbe effect tbat, as
the committee appointed to arrange the in
auguration ceremonies having decliued to
give to representatives in congress their
proper place, we will decline to take any
part in tbe said ceremonies at the
capital. In defense of his resolution Mr.
Mills, who is a Democrat, held that the bouse
as the direct representative of the people
ought not to submit lo the Indignity. He
created rather a sensation when he charac
terized President-elect Cleveland as a Repub
lican-Democratic president. Although the
resolution was defeated by a decided vote,
those who supported it were generally those
who feel that Mr. Cleveland is not entitled
to special conslderatiou because of his letter
on the silver question.

Mr. Hammond felt t hat the house was
about to do, uuder passion, a very unseemly
thing. On the 4th of March a president of
tbe United States was to be inaugurated and
it was usual that the house of representa
tives should be with tbe senate and other
public olliciais to witness that great scene.
A resolution which declared that because
the bouse bad to sit behind other gentlemen
in the senate it would not sit there st all was
puerile. The hou*e, instead of maintaining
its dignity, was losing it . It was offering In
tentlonaliy what seemed to be an insult to
tbe committee which it had never intended
to Insult, or to inflict on it an affront of any
sort. Mr. Young earnestly protested against
INFLICTING Tnis PtSCOVRTEST

Reagan supported tbe resolution, and said
that the house should not submit to the sen

given to diplomats, judges, military officers
and tbe heads of bureaus over the representa

authorized to make arrangements for the in
augural ceremonies, and a single body wus
not authorized to dictate and arrange it. The
senate committee bad not done otherwise
than offer an intentional and deliberate dis
courtesy, and the representatives would bave

courtesy. Mr. Kelley stated that he bad been

about Endicott going into his cabinet and it
will be decided here to-morrow. There is
still a pressure from both Connecticut and
New Jersey for places, and great hostility to
giving Massachusetts a place in the calrtaet,
because she not only did not

likely to vote Democratic in

Boston, March 2.— The Transcript says
that tbe annual report of the Chicago, Bur
lington & Quincy Railroad company for 1884
will issue this month. The greatest change
iv the figures as compared with 1883 will be
In the net earnings, which bave decreased
$915,000, upon a loss of $628,000 in the
gross traffic. Tbe gross earnings for January
will probably show an increase equal to one
half the gross loss in ISS4. There wa3 no
change in the amount paid in dividends in
ISS4, the disbursements on this account be
ing as iv 1883, $5,566,000, There
is an increase of about $300,000
in fixed charges. The net land receipts are
understood to have been about aa in 1883, or
$1,500,000. The report for 18S3 showed a
surplus of the land receipts and $2,487,000
from operating, therefore the railroad sur
plus to be shown for 1884 will he about one
half the operating surplus of ISB3, or $1,300,
-000. But it is understood that the Hannibal
& St. Joseph, now fully owned by the Chi
cago, Burlington & Quincy, earned, as in
1863, a surplus of $1,000,000.
St. Louis, March 2. — An injunction was
taken out in the circuit court, St. Louis, to
day, to restrain Jay Gould from voting at the
annual election of the Iron Mountain rail
road on the 60th, as he holds $22,000,000 of
stock of the road as trustee. It is said the
stock was obtained by conspiracy to give the
Missouri Pacific road coutrol over the Iron
Mountain. In pursuance of the conspiracy,
they increased Missouri Pacific thirty mil
lions, and used this increase to buy up stock
of the Iron Mountain, which was much less
valuable, paying three shares of Missouri
Pacific for four of Iron Mountain;
that inasmuch as he clearly represents the Mis
souri Pacific Gould has uo right to vote these
$22,000,000 because the Missouri Pacific
operates the Missouri, Kansas it Texas rail
road, which is iv fact a parallel line, and be
cause the state constitution prohibits two
parallel lines from being operated by the
same management. The alternative writ of
injunction is issued returnable next Thurs
day. If the court sustains the injunction
only 900 shares of Iron Mountain stock will
be left free to vote at the annual meeting.
ST. PAUL, EAST-BOUND RATES.
How Cutting is Done in St. Paul By Agents
To Sleet Scalpers' Rates.
For some time past passenger rates to
railroad men and other Interested parties
have been considered rather loose to Chicago
and points South and Southwest en tbe
trunk lines. No special open cut has been
made that could in any way inculpate the
agents, but deviations from the tariff rates
have nevertheless been indulged In for some
time and of recent date nearly every ticket
6old in St. Paul to Chicago has been dis
posed of at a rate from SO cents to $1 below
the schedule price. The rates to Chicago
were put at $8 second class by
the St. Paul and Minneapolis Passenger
association, with a commission of 50 cents
to be allowed to scalpers. For some time,
of course, after the agreement, the traveling
public were not aware tbat they could pur
chase from a broker a ticket for $8.50, where
as if they went to the agents they would have
to pay $9. Then the agents found that the
brokers could do as much, if not more, busi
ness than they themselves could, and now
the agents J*nd it quite difficult to make a
sale at the 89 rate. If the agent can not sell
at $9 he sends for his favorite scalper and
tells the purchaser to buy from the pcalper,
who gives them a rate of $8.50 to Chicago,
signs the voucher, and turns the money
over to the agent, receiving for his
work 50 cent 3, and gives the purchaser a
benefit of the same amount. The scalper
always 6igns a voucher, for an agent of one
of the other lines has noticed the buyer of
the ticket going into the office, and as soon
as be is outside be will inquire what the
ticket was sold for and as soon as he finds
out that It was bought for $8.50 he makes
further investigation to see how the trans
action was done. If the ticket had not been
purchased from the scalper a fine of $500
could be imposed on the guilty agent. On
this new way of doing business the scalper
sells at $12 to Kansas City; the rate quoted
being $14.75; and to St. Louis at $11, a cut
of $3.75. It is therefore quite plain that the
scalper has a great advantage over the agent.
The scalper can make a lower rate than the
company ltaelf, and the latter has to resort
to some means to get on an even basis.
UNION* DEPOT AFFAIRS.
Clouds Rising in the Horizon that Threaten
Trouble Is brewing at the union depot,
wbich In time may perplex several of the
road 3 Interested In it. It will be re
membered tbat four baggagemen including
the baggagemaster of the union depot were
discharged by order of A. Manvel, general
manager of tbe Manitoba road, and at the
same time be appointed Mr. Hill, assistant
general baggagemaster of the Manitoba road,
as baggagemaster of the depot. Later on Mr.
Manvel, it is stated, notified Superintendent
Brunson of the union depot that bis juris
diction would extend over the union depot
only, and not over tbe baggagemen. Since
this order was given, the story goes, Hill tbe
baggagemaster, has discharged two more of
tbe clerks under him, and when one asked
him what he bad against him, Mr.Hiil, replied:
"I have nothing against you as a man, but I
want my own men around me, and not
Branson's." Nearly all the appointments of
officers at the depot were made by tbe Mil
waukee road, Superintendent Brunson In
cluded. Rumor now says that the Manitoba
company is working to secure
control of the depot by mak
ing discbarges and appointments of its
own accord without consulting any of the
directors. Yesterday there was a good deal
of talk to tie effect that Mr. Brandon would
resign, only for the Omaha and Milwaukee
companies influencing him to remain, with
