points of view,- a 'reporter interviewed
Influential politicians in an imiiscrim

were, found who inclined to the view
that (.apt. Van Sam has the best of the

thought lie saw a chance fur Han Shell
to come in as a dark horse. All of the
candidates have gone home to spend
Sunday, but will be back at work Mon
day. Without giving any names, the
following may be given as some of the
views ol wiseacres on the situation:
One gentleman said that Capt Van
Sant has not only his own strength, but
the strength of the Washbum forces
behind him. Another said one element
of strength for L'apt. Van bant is the
fait that he is interested in lumbering.
He I.as eight or ten raft boats, and
ii akes a business of towing timber and
lumber, lie has an acquaintance not
only among the lumbermen, but among

with the Weyerhauser vindicate, and
will have its support all over the state
v. I.ere the Weyerhauser interests ex
tend. He will have the backing of the
n\er men and pir.e lumber dealers.
His strength in the Sixth district came
not only through the lumber operators,
such as Weye ilia user and other?, but

Another gentleman said that, in his
opinion, the things relied on by Capt.
Van Sam's friends would be a source of
weakness. He would have the opposi

extent. He would also have the appor
tion of the lumbermen and others who

claimed, that the syndicate is pushing
Capt. Vhii Sant for the speakership, it
means a ereat deal to the people. It
will mean tbat committees will be
shaped in the Interest of

and the lumber syndicate. It will mean
that the bit iron operators will expect
the committee on mines and mining to
be made up to suit them. It will mean
the giving of positions on certain com
mittees to men who sprang into the
breach. This will cut both ways. It
will drive men la draw the lines on the
question of lumbering and mining.

NO S.VIISFV lACi THE C. P.
Western Linos Make No Progress
CurcAGO.Uec. 15.— The Western lines
made no progress today with the Cana
dian Pacific, and the prospect of form
ing an association with that road on the
inside is growing darker. The Cana
dian Pacific was yesterday given to un
derstand that it could have -JO per cent
of all the emigrant business coiniac
through New York. No deliniU offer
of the kind was made, but tti« matter
was distinctly understood between all
parties concerned. It also demanded
concessions in the Northwest, which
were practically conceded. Today it
asked that all Western roads withdraw
the excessive commissions they are pay
liii; on emigrant business coming
through Canadian puns pending the
settlement of the trouble. It was then
asked to withdraw the same commis
sions that it is paying in the emigrant
traffic going through. New York, but
at the same time demanded that
the other line!* do away with all
commissions in its territory. The West
ern lines declared that they agreed to
pay these commissions in order to pro
trot the Interests of the Grand Trunk,
which had sided with them in the fight.
The Canadian Pacific still insisted that
all the commissions in Canadian ports
be withdrawn, hut it was unwilling to
make any concession in return. The
Western lines would not agree to any
such arrangement, and the whole thin?
went over until Tuesday. The affair is
rapidly Bearing the point where the
Western lines must make up their
minds whether they will trail alone be
hind the Canadian Pacific or form an
association without it. The vote of the
Canadian Pacific for the reorganization
of the Trancontinental Passenger asso
ciation is conditional on the settlement
of the emigrant and differential ques
tions. The Western roads have de
clared several times tli .t when they
were fully aware that there was no fur
ther usa in trying to get the Canadian
Pacific into the association they would
go ahead on their own account, but lor
some reason they seem to lose their
nerve when it comes to the direct point.

TWO OiiO PISTOLiS
Which Recall a Murderous Duel
Many Yours Ago.
A very handsome pair of old-fashioned
pistols, the barrels twelve inches lons,
saw-handle grips and Hint locks, made
by Wilkinson, of London, 1820, and fin
ished in a style that shows the perfec
tion of mechanical handiwork, have a
record ot deadly interest to old Phlla
deiphians, for a bullet from one of them
caused the death of William H. Miiier
Jr. at the hands of Charles G. Hunter,
of the United States nuvy, known to
history as Alvarftdo Hunter.
William H. Miller Jr. was a young
lawyer who lived on the south side of
Wainut below Third street, and was
connected with many of tiie leading
families in Philadelphia. lie was in
volved in a quarrel under the following
circumstances: H. Wharton Griffith
and Roger Dillon Drake, two of the
elided youths at thut time (18^0). had a
lisrht in a saloon at Fourth and Chest
nut, and mutually* pommeled one an
Alter a suspicious delay Griffith sent
Midshipman Charles H. Duryea to
Drake with a challenge. Drake took
abundance or time to reply, rHusinz to
meet Griffith on the ground that lie was
not a gentleman, and Durvea at once
challenged Drake, and, after a time,
posted him as a coward. Finally Drake
sent Miller with a challenge to Duryea,
who refused to accept it on the ground
that Drake was no gentlsuian. Here
was a complication. Jack Alston, of
Bedford, N. 11., a noted duelist, was
consulted, and quickly gave his opinion
that the entire crowd were a "set of
Quaker duffers and windbags, who did
not want to light." lie ended matters
by offering to go out with everybody in
sight. As he was manifestly dangerous
all hands kept out of his way, and he
left the state with a huge disdain for
the Quaker City bravoesT
And now new parties intervened.
Midshipman Charles G. Hunter and
Lieut. Hampton Westeott, of thy
marines, as frienda of Duryea. took it
up, and Hunter goaded Miller into a
light, finally posting him in the United
States hotel. Then Miller sent Lieut.
Edmund Byrne, U. S. X.. to Hunter,
and a meeting was arranged, and on
Sunday: March 17, IS3O. the affair came
off on the Delaware side of Naaman's
creek in Delaware county, it is said
that an agreement was made that Miller,
who was no shot, was to be spared, but
Hunter on the ground asked his second,
Westcott, "Shall I hit him?"
"Yes." answered Wescott, "pink the
Hunter's bullet went through Miller's
lanes, and he was dead ere he struck
the ground. Hunter remarked that he
had no enmity againsc the dead man.
and the blame rested on those who had
commenced the quarrel.
Philadelphia journalists were timid
in those days. After giving the names
of Byrne, Duryea, Hunter and West
cott, they added that there was another
person on the ground, but did not give
the name-and this was the sharper and
horse jockey, Prince Murat, from Bor
dentown, and he drove Hunter away iv
The sequel was incredibly brutal.
Miller's body was doubled up, pUced
in a chaise and driven to the home of
his uncle, Kobert Craig, on Walnut
street, the father-in-law of Nicholas
Biddle, and stiff and bloody was car
ried into the house. It is incredible to
tell thas no steps were taken by the
dead man's influential relatives to
avenire his murder, but the people
spoke with no uncertain voice.
1 ha state legislature, then in session,
denounced the murder and petitioned
President Jackson in the matter. John
Branch, secretary of 'lie navy, at once
sent iv the names of those concerned e
and the president ordered them to b e
dismissed from the service of til
Hunter was secreted in the house of
a farmer on tiie banks of the Delaware,
and here he remained for some time,
finally marrying the landlord's daugh

during the war. disobeying his orders
therein, and for this he whs court-mar
tialed and henceforth was a friendless
wanderer, dying in misery in a New
York hospital, regretting at last that he
had any part in the death of Miller.
The pistols belonged to Weseott, and
came into possession or a relative, who
sold them to Robert States, of New
York, and they were sent to a friend
here for inspection. Although smooth
bores, at twenty yards they are as accu

Fitzgerald, Ilopkios, Dates, Wild and
Wainuwrisrht. .In tills list of mi worthies
we notice one, Maclaine, whose right to
stand among the twelve we must chal
lenge. His sobriquet was "The Gentle
-111.111 Highwayman." and he was, in fnct,
a luiluer-aiannered man than ever scut
tied ship or cut a throat. Ho is never
recorded to have rirud a pistol more
than once, and then perhaps by acci

bold robber. 11« really seems to owe
his Mainline as a peer among the
twdvi- to a couple of ancient and rare
•ugravlngs, <v which he appears iusuou

ot hi* biography.
The eleven would have scorned com
oanionship with such a milksop. It
may, however, b*s said that as he died
youngest of the twelve save one, there
is no knowing what a villian I:m would
have become had his life been prolonged
to the fourscore years of Lovat. The.
twelve were every .one practical an
archist!*, setting at naught all laws of
family, society and state. All but two
died on sea Hold tallows, or in jail. Of
those two, one, escaping death through
a legal quibble, buffered torture worse
than death; and the other, according to
his epitiiDii. "having done every day of
his life something worthy of a gibbet,
was condemned to one." Though
offense's gilded hand did shove by
justice, he. died offering £:K),oco fir
assurance that there was no hell.
The rascal whose story comes nearest

other* so dexterously that, while crime
was doubled, the percentage of con

wolfish rapacity and fox-like cunning
were but the baby figure of the giant
mass of things to come at large in our
city, he that runs can read. Regarding

The poet, in view of his father's Ions: !
period of service as the pastor ot Mid- j
way chinch, remained throughout his !
lons career the loyal and steadfast J
friend of the South. His views of slav- 1
cry were tempered by his knowledge of
the Southern people, aud though lie
opposed the institution his pe:i was
never unsheathed in strife or dominated
by a spirit of bitter acrimony. During
the agitation of slavery, at which time
the poets of the North made frequent
appeals to the muse, there was 110 bit-1
terness in the strains that were swept j
from the harp ot Dr. Holmes, and not
withstanding the attitude of his kins- I
man. the celebrated Wendell Phillips, j
who was known throughout the North |
as "the great apostle of emancipation," j
he refused to condemn the people of the
South or speak of them in any terms!
but those of the highest esteem. For
this reason the people of the South
have always admired the poet, and now
that he has fallen asleep, at the close of
his long pilgrimage, tney will cherish, j
in faithful recollections, the melodies I
of his inspired pen.
Two years after the clergyman's
arrival in Boston, the poet was born on
the 29th of August, 180 W.
How Could They Refuse?
An energetic woman, about thirty
years old, for work applied at the office
of the United States Rubber company,
in New York city, and was told by the
clerk to go up st.iirs and seethe fore

way, went out into the yard and, seeing
no other way to get up. she tucked up
her skirts and ascended the tire escape
to the fourth story. There she opened
the window and climbed in, to the sur
prise of the foreman, who was standing
ing near by. The foreman, after re
coveriuj from hisembarrasstnuiit,asked
her what she wanted. The woman
stated her mission. Slie trot the job.

And now 'twould teem 'tis all turns?
A God upon the tree has died—
To redeem mankind was crucified—
And all the human gore been shed.

For modern science does attest
Old Adam and his fall non cst.

Lay only in believing all
The creed, without which each man foil
Straight in the Raping jaws of hell.
Of course, if Adam never lived at all
"J'is plain to see there was no fall;
And If 'twas'cause old Adam fell
Mankind were going straight to hell.

And myself believed with ml the rest,
Wnen Adam and bis early curse
Were wiped from off the universe
Oh. why was not that pince called hell
Expunged from the world as well?
Or is it such a cherished place.
And so dear to all the race.

For fear the world would all be lost
Without it. and new reasons urged
To take the pi ice of old on- s purged
