that tbe cabinet problem has been solved by
the selection of Benjamin F. Tracey, of
Brooklyn, N. Y., as the compromise candi
date for the Empire state. At o'clock last
night Mr. Tracey said that the suggestion
that ha accept a cabinet position was agreea
ble to him, and upon this intelligence being
conveyed to Gen. Harrison, an interview was
arranged with Mr. Traoey. That the iuvita

At tnidulgbt it was announced that an
effort would be made to induce Senator
Palmer to accept some other portfolio than
that of agriculture. Room was suggested
for Governor Rusk. An intimate friend of
the presideut-elect said that he bad stated
that he was deciding betweon Swift, of Cali

Palmor have been to Senator Stock bridge

all of them be has returned tbe same reply
that he did not know that Senator Palmer

Palmer has never been considered an active

The resolutions presented by the committee
on that mattter reaffirm the principles enun
dated by the last national Republican con

some portions of the country successful work

could not be bad through tbe ballot, but con
gratulate the people on tbe success of a party
pledged to insist on a "free ballot and fair
count" in all the states of the Union, and
hopefully look forward to the action of a Re
publican congress and executive which shall
make and compel obedience to such Just laws
as will effectively insure to all their full civil
rights; recognise in the congressional provis
ion for th immediate admission to the
Union of the four new states of South Da
kota, North Dakota, Montana, and Washing
ton, the first g.ori wis fruits o? the recent ui
tional Republican , victory, and welcome
them into the sisterhood of Republican states

their efforts to secure local self -government
for Ireland, and congratulate them on the

New York, March . R. G. Dun & Co.'t
weekly review of xade says: Traders whe

for tbe expected w nter trade find ihat it does
not come, and spring has arrived. Hence
tuere are on hatd large stocks of unsold
winter goods, whit h accounts for the tardi
ness uf collections ui many quarters, and for
the general sense ot disappointment Though
the trade of Febru try, like that of January,
has been rather liirger ou the whole than
tunt of last year, it is not forgotten that busi
ness was unusually interrupted last year by
storms, strikes, anri other impediments. But
the outlook for tbe spring and tbe feeling of
confidence as to i he future are at least as
favorable as a yea- ago, though in some de
partments the state of trade is at present un
satisfactory. At fully half the interior point

good trade or some improvement Otnnha

else nearly they ar tardy.

not encouraging. Efforts are being made to
cut down production still more. The output

the outgo of wheal, the exports of all mer

ner's Welcome and Arrest.
Madrjd, March & An Englishman,
registered at a hotel in this city as "Ronald
Ponsonby," was placed nnder arrest yester
day and committed suicide before the police
could enter bis room. He is supposed to
have been Richard Pigott, the absconding
Irish perjurer and informer.
Los-don, March 2. There seems to be no
doubt that the "Ronald Ponsonby," who
committed suicide in a hotel in Madrid yes
terday, was Pigott. In assuming an alias he
evidently chose a name whose initials
would correspond with those on bis luggage.
No papers were found upon bis person, but
his description is identical with that of a man
who called at the Hotel Deux Mondes in Paris
and left suddenly.
The Standard's Madrid dispatch saya that
when Pigott was arresW he took the matter
calmly and asked permission to retire to an
ante-room to obtain bis cloak. A moment
later tbe sound of the pistol shot was beard
and on eutaring tbe room tbe officers found
Pigott dead. He had shot himself in tbe
mouth, dying instantly.
THE DEBATE IN PARLIAMENT.
Gladstone Takes the I 'I nor on the Irish
London, March 2. In the house of com
mons yesterday Matthews, the home secre
tary, said in answer to a question that Con
stable Preston bad visited a prisoner by the
name of Tracey twice aud interviewed him in
bis cell. Tbis was done at the instance of
Sottmes, The Times' solicitor. Hareourt, Lib
eral, intimated that the visits of tho con
stable constituted a gross impropriety.where.
uixm Balfour, chief secretary for Ireland, de
clared that he was unable to se any impro
priety in tbe visits. During the debate on
this question Dr Tanner, the Nationalist
member for Cork, for whose arrest a warrant
under the crimes act bas beeu inmed, entered
the house. His appearance was the signal for
prolonged cheering on the part of the Irish
Gladstone, resuming the debate on the ad
dress, declared that tbe difficulties placed in
the way of a settlement of the land question
were due to tbe action of Chamberlain,
Hartington and their friends. When the
effects of their action, which resulted in the
distress of tenants, became patent,
these gentlemen obstinately refused to
deal with the questious concerning them.
The plan of campaign was a direct and neces
sary result of their course. Gladstone said
he had never vindicated the cause of those
who had committed breachos of the law, but
he was compelled to say that this was one of
the cases in which tbe lawmakers were
more responsible than the law-break
ers. He denounced the degrading
hardbliips and personal indignities which
the Parnellito members and their
adborents had suffered, and denied the accusa
tions that political prisoners bad suffered sim
ilar indignities and hardship under the gov
ernment of the Liberals. Concluding, Glad
stone asserted that home rule was snrely com
ing, and many ot those opposing it must al
ready see in the handwriting on the wall the
signs of their approaching doom.
Parnell, upon entering the house, was greet
ed with enthusiastic cheers from the opposi
tion members, every one of whom rose to his
feet and waved his hat, including Gladstone.
When he rose to speak tbe demonstration was
repeated. He said he believed that bis col
leagues and friends who had suffered through
Balfour's principles would be richly reward
ed in the near future by attaining the object
tbey bad at heart. Ireland would have been
long ago tranquil but for exceptional
law, the results of which the gov
ernment was responsible for, and
upou which tbe ministry must stand
or fall. He would not discuss the conspiracy
which bad been assisted by the ministers to
steal the hbortie of Ireland. He was confi
dent that Englishmen would soon recognize
the possibility of home rule, and Irishmen
knowing that they wure turning their ear to
the reason of the question would steudlly re
sist the incitement of disorder and pursue the
true path whu-h Gladstone had indicated in
Morley's amendment w as then rejected by
a vote of 39 to 200.
i WHOOPING IT UP IN IRELAND.
The Land Leag-uere Rejoicing Over
Tumble of The Time..
LD5D0N, March 2 Ireland has been wild
with delight over since the denouement of
The Times case against Parnell was an'
nounced. Meetings have been held by tb
hundreds throughout the country, and the
polios have been taxed to their utmost re
sources to maintain order and keep the thou
sands of exultant Irish within bounds.
Thursday night at one of these "victory"
meetings in County Galway an Incipient
row with the police seemed likely
to break forth into an absolute
not, out unaer the counsel of a
few or tbe leaders the disturbance was
quelled and the temper of the crowd mani
fested itse'f in guying the officers and calling
them "Pigottists." These meetings have been
most entbuslnstlo, and those who have ad
dressed them bave cheered their bearers by
predicting a rpeedy end to tbe oppression of
Ireland. Money that bas been all along want
ing for the continuation of tbe Parnellites'
defence is now pouring in, and It is evident
that the people are determined that as far as
lies in their power Parnell shall have tbe
means of pushing bis case to the end.

Imitator of Jack the Ripper at Work
Casey, la. , March 8. A little pond of stag
nant water, dignified by the name of Bilver
Lake, four miles west of here, has a history
as a bathing place. Just west of tho lake is a
school house, which bas been a popular re
sort for the belles and the beaux of the neigh
borhood to congregate. One man vows that
he saw a white apparition rise out of tbe
water and beckon him. He fled in mortal
terror. The next time he was accompanied
by a friend, aud tbe spirit appeared mounted
on a white steed, guiding it by a golden rein
and playing on what they declare a harp.
The steed's eyes were balls of fire. The ghost
rested on a fence until the man threw a stone
through him, when be disappeared be
neath the waters of Silver Lake. The ap
parition was afterward viewed by many.
Sometimes the hone emitted volumes of
smoke from his nostrils and words of warn
ing were written in tire across of tbe heaven
ly firmament Thursday night tbe ghost
came to grief. Several days ago the appar
ition frightened a farmer's team, which ran
away, tipped over the buggy, and nearly
killed his wife The husband procured a
shotgnn, loaded it with buckshot, and then
lay in wait (our nights until Thursday night,
when he filled tbe ghost full of buckshot It
cried: "My God, don't shoot any more," and
fell prostrate. The ghost was carried borne
by the shooter and cared for. No oue but
the attending physician bas seen bun, and
tbe latter refuses to give any names. He is
suspected to be a land seeker, who wished to
scare tbe owners and buy tbe adjoiu .ng land
