Washington, Nov. The Critic
•this afternoon claims that Senator Col
quitt is quite likely to take a seat in the
cabinet as secretary of the interior. ,
The article ryirn^n to say that the fact
that Senator Colquitt, of Georgia, has
appeared on the scene is not suggestive
in itself, but taken with the fact that
he was yesterday closeted with Secre
tary Lamar for several hours after the
meeting of the cabinet has revived the
rumor thai he will figure in the new
cabinet deal. Viewing the matter from
all side-, it now seems probable that the
solution of Mr. Lamar's promotion to

Vilas to remain where he is and Gov.
Cordon to succeed Mr. Colquitt as sena

The British Mugwump Talks With
a Lot of Newspaper Men.
Washington, Nov. 18. -Joseph Cham
berlain, the British fisheries commis
sioner, gave an audience at 5 o'clock
this evening to about twenty newspaper
men. The conversation ranged from
the powers of the British parliament on
the one hand to the provisions of the
liutterworth commercial union bill on
the other. Mr. Chamberlain was under
stood to say one jwint that the pur
pose of the commission was to make an
entirely new treaty, -the existing treaty
"having proved unsati-factory: but upon
further inquiry, es-pecially as to whether
an interpretation of the existing treaty '*
might not be found which would meet
the views of both sides, he became non- :
committal beyond the point of ad
mitting that such thing might he the :
possible outcome of the conference. He
said that though as a matter of fact, he
supposed that Minister West and him- i
self being a majority of the British com
mission, could decide any mooted point,
he should consider any arrangement
which did not have the full concurrence
of Sir Charles Tapper a very lame and \
unsatisfactory j one. He thought it un- i
likely that the subject of commercial j
union with Canada would come before 1
the commission in any way. There was j
scarcely a shadow of a doubt that any i
arrangement agreed to by the British j
commissioners would Le held binding >
by iheir government. lie was not at I
lihertx to disclose the limits within '
which the British commissioners could i
treat, their instructions being coufiden- '
tial. He did md think an] sane man on j
the other side of the water ever thought
of war as a remote possibility, in con
nection with the fisheries dispute.

minister, constituting the British j
fishery ccmmiss'oa,' called at the deport- !
ment of stote at noon to-day, where the j
minister introduced his fellow commis- j
sioners to secretary Bayard. The con- j
versation was not of a foimal nature 1
and in the absence of Messrs. Putnam
and Angel uo effort was made to fix a
day for the first conference of the nego- !
tiators. To-morrow the British commis- !
sioners will be presented to the presi- ;
dent by Secretary Bayard. The indica- j
tions are thai early next week the rep- '

THE POSTAL Si: It VICE.
Animal Report of the Second As- I
sistant Postmaster General.
Washington, Nov. IS.— The annual
report of A. Leo Knott, second assistant
postmaster genera-, shows that the total
cost for the year was ?.!'.;''n;...w. In the !
star service there was an increase of 015 i
routes, and a decrease in the cost of 1
Jt*_.V_.t*"f7. In the mail messenger service j
there was an increase of Hi, routes and i
a decrease of •■?■">. 3ll in cost. In the rail- j
road service there was an increase of
7,015 miles in length of routes and an ■
increase of cost of (-54,500. In the star j
and steamboat service there was an ay- !
erage increase in the number ot miles I
traveled (luring the last year over the
average of the six preceding years of
7.50 per cent and a decrease in "the cost
of 13 per cent in the star service and a
decrease of 37 per cent in the
cost of the steamboat service.
The next quadrennial weighing
takes place In the second section,
embracing the states of North Carolina.
South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Ala
dama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Ken
tucky, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. A
large increase in the weight of mails is
anticipated in this section, and a conse
quent increase in the rate of cost there
for. This probable increase is put at 14
per cent on the present rate of cost of
railroad transportation in that section.
The increase in the number of pieces of i
mail handled by the postal clerks dur
ing the las; fiscal year over the preced
ing year was 505,000,000. The continua
tion of the appropriation for special
mail facilities on fast lines to the South
and West is recommended. The total
amount of the estimates submitted to
meet the requirements of the office of
the second assistant postmaster gen
eral for the fiscal year 1888-"_0 is
$31,635,005. The report close- with a
strong 1 recommendation in favor of a I
change in the method of paying rail
roads for mail transportation. It is
maintained that the railway service has
outgrown the old method of adjusting
the pay of railroads, and it is recom
mended that space be substituted for
weight as the basis and criterion of the
compensation of railroads, and it is
confidently believed that such change
—j ill be more economical to the govern- 1
iont and more equitable in the transac
tion between the department and the
railroads and more satisfactory 7 to both.

Causing Congressmen to Open j
Their Eyes a Trifle.
Special to the Globe.
Washington", Nov. is. — The furnished
I bouses this season are not bringing
: princely fortunes to their possessors.
j The members of congress are getting
; their canine teeth cut. and have ceased
j to throw away their meager salaries in
! that fashion. You see. the average fur
! nished boose costs its lessee (SO or $00
i per mouth for rent. The furniture
j costs from $2,000 to $3,000. Ten per
cent on the best would be $300 per an
num. But hey charge $50 per month
for the furniture, or 20 per cent upon
investment. That is rather a large rate
1 of interest to be paid even by the mem
bers of the "wayback deestnek." The
; cost of living is always four times the
| cost of rent. It costs more to keep up a
i costly establishment than for a small
• one. ' For example, if you rent a house
j for $25 per ""month, as the government
\ clerks do, it will cost four times that
' amount to live, or $100 per month.
' "When a congressman rents a house for
! $125 per month it costs him four times
that amount, orssoo, to live per month,
and that is $0,093, or $1,000 more than
! his salary. - You see. servants and fuel
: and lights* and other expenses, make
the average just the same, according to
statistics. Hence the members of eon

New York, Nov. IS.— The league
committee appointed yesterday and the
representatives of the brotherhood got
together early Ibis morning and all busi
ness was transacted in secrecy. President
Hewitt said the brotherhood would un
doubtedly get whatever it asked that
was fair and right, but would not say
what he thought that might be. Man
ager Wright, of Philadelphia, said also
that he did not know what the brother
hood was asking of the committee, but
didn't doubt that all would come out for
the best interests of all parties. He did
not look upon the recognition of the
brotherhood as in any sense a surrender,
but only as a consent to work together
for mutual interests. The committee
had finished their work at 3:25 o'clock
and live minutes later the league's com
mittee made their report to the conven

short and the modified contract as

insertion in section 18 of that portion
which prevents the reservation of a man

men can still be reserved and sold, but
only on the condition that their salaries

Cincinnati, Nov. 18.— In regard to
the rumor that the Cincinnati Base
Ball club will be sold out for debt, .John
Houck, the brewer, and President Stern,
of the ball club, who own most of the

Herancourt formerly owned the ball j
stock. Herancourt also owned a fish
store. hen he failed his ball stock
was transferred to John Houck, one of
llerancourt's creditors. Now a Balti

New York, Nov. 18.— The Sun this

ling of these reports of club gambling |
came from the Union club, and way to ,
the effect that, at a session over bacca- 1
rat recently in the card room, Allen
Thorndyke Bice, of the North Ameri

Lorillard. Several club men had heard
it casually, the circumstances and fig

that it is too small.

sensus of opinion in political circles and

that the reception given the czar of Rus

over the entire city, and the grand

the onlookers more as a duty than a
hearty ovation. The protracted inter
view which the emperor of Russia held
with the imperial German chancellor, at
his palace on the Unter den Linden
evidently is taken to mean that the eld

3L.1-RIED A BAR MAID,
The Freak of a Well Born British
' Lad Causes a Sensation.
". I.o\im>.\". Nov. 18.— Considerable sen
sation in high life has been occasioned
by the elopement and marriage of Percy
Reginald, .only son of Foster, of
Stoiirton Court, Stourbridge,' and Alice
Dora, '..youngest daughter of John F.
lovell,* Wolverhampton, who was at
the time following the vocation of a bar
maid. Capt. Foster has published an
announcement that he will not be re
sponsible for any debts his son may con
tract." The chief actor is a high-spirited
until not more than seventeen years of
age. and who is the only son ami heir 01
one of the county families of Fast Wor
.--•rtrshire, and whose name occurs in
Domesbay book from which Burkes
book of the British peerage is compiled.
The father of the youth is a retired cap
tain of dragoons and his mother is of a
distinguished Scotch family, a mem
ber of which, for his services in the In
dian mutiny, was raised to the house of
peers. Three months ago the young
heir was introduced at the close of a
boating excursion by the private secre
tary of his father to a barmaid, who is
between twenty-one and twenty-two
years of age. at the wine and spirit
vaults at Stourbridge, whom the secre
tary pronounced "the prettiest girl in
England." It was an affair of "love at
first sight," and the young fellow de
clared he would never marry any one
else. A friendship sprang up, and fam
ily entreaties and threats were alike in
vain. At this time the young man was .
on a vacation from his college at Ciren
cester. The family communicated with
the detective police at Birmingham, and
for weeks past private detectives
watched the pretty barmaid's move
ments night and day. His mother's re
monstrances were unavailing. On the
contrary, it appears to have hastened
the young man's determination, for the •
day following his mother's last plead
ings the couple eloped and were mar
ried at a country church near Liver
pool. The bride herself communicated
this information to the family and asked
British Gold and Not Necessity In
duced His Surrender.
London, Nov. When Lord Salis
bury last week, at the lord mayor's ban
quet at the Guild hall, announced that
Ayoub Khan had surrendered to the In
dian government, or, In other words, to
England, he undoubtedly stated a truth.
That is, it is truth as far as it goes.
That Ayoub Khan has surrendered is
true, but if Lord Salisbury had gone on
and mentioned that the English govern
ment had made sundry promises to the
rebel which induced his surrender, he
would have stated the whole truth for
it comes from undoubted authority that
England did make promises to the
Afghan pretender, one of which was to
put him on the throne of Afghanistan
when the present feeble ameer dies.
The second son of Shere Ali, the late
ameer, is Ayoub, but neither of the
brothers succeeded to the throne of their
father, but England, in order to gain
control over the country, or rather to re
tain her control upon the death of Shere
Ali, offered the throne to the latter's
nephew, Ab-del-Rahman, the present
ameer. There is likely, however, to be
a hitch in the programme being carried
out as proposed. The present ameer
has a son about thirteen years old, and
it may occur to Russia, whose forces
are much nearer Cabul now than when
England put Shere Ali on the throne,
to espouse the cause of this infant, and
so put a serious check upon the plans of
England. It would be strange if the
fortunes of this semi-civilized country
should bring about an issue between two
great European nations, but it is quite
possible. These interesting facts about
the surrender of the war-like Ayoub
Khan are what Lord Salisbury did not
mention at the Guild hall banquet. , :'"*■<

The Milwaukee & St. Paul Has
Concluded Not to Cut
Special to the Globe.
Helena, Mont., Nov. 18.— This after
noon considerable excitement was cre
ated over the attempt of the Northern
Pacific to hinder the entrance of the
Montana Central, the Manitoba exten
sion,*! the city. About two miles
from Helena the Montana Central
crosses the Northern Pacific. This
crossing was condemned by the Mon
tana Central some months ago, but the
Northern Pacific appealed from the de
cision of the appraisers on awarding
damages. Humors of impending con
flict have been current for some days.
To-day at noon the Montana Central
tracklayers reached this point, and
crossed - the Northern Pacific
main line without opposition.
From this point about a
mile towards the city the Montana Cen
tral had built its grade by mistake on
the them Pacific right of way. This
en or it discovered about a month ago,
and abandoning the first grade built an
other outside of the Northern Pacific
limits. A few days ago the Northern
Pacific took possession of the abandoned
LAID TRACK OX IT,
intending to use it as an extension in
Helena of its branch which heretofore
joined the main line about two miles
out. To-day when the Montana Central
tracklayers reached the abandoned road
they found a Northern Pacific work
train on it, which obstructed further
passage. A delay of two hours ensued,
when by . orders from St. Paul the
Northern Pacific raised the blockade and
tracklaying advanced; without further
opposition. The Montana Central track
entered the city limits this afternoon.
Next Monday the first train from St.
Paul, with Mr. Hill and other Manitoba
officials, will arrive, and the day will
be "celebrated by street parades,
speeches and banquet. The Northern
Pacific opposition to-day was probably
based en the fact that the Montana Cen
tral had failed to- legally condemn" "the
crossing of the abandoned grade which
has become-part of the -Northern Pacific
system. Feeling over the occurrence
ran high and citizens volunteered to go
out en masse to the relief of the Mon

of the Northern Pacific was all that pre:
The Lumber Rates.
A few weeks ago there was a good
deal of fuss over the reduction of rates
made by the Milwaukee & St. Paul, and
the meeting of them by the Northern
Pacific and the Manitoba, and threats
were made by the Milwaukee & St.Paul
that it would make another cut. It has
not done so. and yesterday the roads in
terested in the matter— Manitoba,
Milwaukee <"_ St.Paul, Northern Pacific,
Minneapolis ".St. Louis, Minneapolis &
Pacific, and the Chicago & Northwest
ern— held a meeting and agreed to re
store the lumber rates to all points in
Minnesota and Dakota to those in oper
ation last .June, tt seems, therefore,
that the Milwaukee & St. Paul has
backed down from its position.
