A Washington dispatch to today's
Chicago Herald says:
Congressman Oest is straining every
nerre to get w. ti. Manger, or Kock Isl
and, appointed marshal for the northern
district of Illinois, but he isn't much more
cheerful about bis prospects than other
members of the Illinois delegation, and
tbey are all gloomy except those who are
mad. The Chicago members intend to
capture either the district attorneyship or
the marahalship, but the country con
gressmen think tbey can get both, only
one must come from the east side of the
district and the other from the west side.
For the raarshalsbip Munger baa to en
counter Dement, and as a candidate from
iba west side of the district be and Tom
Milchrist, candidate for district attorney,
conflict. Dement would have a pretty
sure thing for the roarshalship.but for the
Net that General Henderson, in whose
district be lives, Is pnsblng Milchrist.

Some time ago Mr. F. C. Hoppe, the
tailor, and Mr. T. H. Thomas, the drug
gist, were discussing suit patterns, and
the latter having been considering an
Enter costume made inquiry as to pat
terns for spring wear. Hoppe replied
that he had one pattern, which, though
it might appear a trifle "loud" at first,
would toon catch the popular eye, and be
volunteered to make it op for Thomas if
the latter would wear it. The proposi
tion was no sooner made than accepted,
and yesterday the suit was delivered to
Mr. Thomas, that gentleman wearing it
down town this morning. While the de
sign is not wholly in keeping with Mr.
Thomas' proverbially modest nature, it is
not at all unbecoming to this style of at
tractivenets and while manifesting in his
composition an ingredient of genuine
"sand" not at all suspected before, be has
the satisfaction too, of knowing that be
bas set the fashion for spring wear, and
that he is the envy of all the dudes, who
not only can't get suits at such a remarka
ble bargain, but can't even "stand the
tailor" off for them.

8t. Lovia, March 1. The legislative con
vention reassembled yesterday morning and
praotlrally flubbed its preliminary work. A
considerable number of resolutions bearing
on trusts, local inspection, and other matters
onneeted with the work of the convention
were introduced and referred to the commit
tee on resolutions, and what is known as the
trust bill now before the Texas legislature,
and copies of the inspection bills pending iu
the legislatures of Missouri, Kansas, Miuhi
f an and other states, were submitted and re
ferred to the committee on needed legislation.
The cooventiou then adjourned till 4 p. m. to
jive the latter committee time to draft a bill
which shall represent the sense of the conven
tion on the whole subject and serve as a uni
form measure to be adopted by all the states.
Tbe committee on needed legislation at the
afternoon session presented as a desirable
measure the bill submitted by the Tesita dele
gation. It provides for the fine and impris
onment, the maximum ling $.',000 fine and
tan years, of any porsou entering into any
sombine to control prices of any commodity,
and also provides for the forfeiture of the
sharter of any corporation violating the pro
visions of the bill. The bill was adopted,
Nebraska casting 4 and Missouri 1 3-5 nega
The second bill on needed'legislation prac
tically the Nebraska bill for tbe inspection
of cattle on the hoof camed a warm debate,
which resulted in an adjournment to 8 p. m.
In order that bill No. 2 might be printed.
The Texas men claimed that tbe adoption of
the preamble to the bill would be a fatal mis
take, for if this convention should announce
to the world the necessity of legislating to
protect home consumers against the sale of
diseased moat, it would result in shutting
American meats out of all foreign markets
and be a severe blow to producers.
The eveniiiK session was taken up in dis
cussing tbe Nobraska local inspection bill.
After a proluucred and warm debate, lasting
until after midnight, in which Texas and Il
linois delegates were most bitterly opposed to
the measure, the bill was adopted by a vote
of 41 4-5 to 26, and the convention ad
journed sine die. The bill prohibits tbe sale
ot Iresu lieer, mutton, lamb or pork in any
county having therein an incorporated city,
town or village containing 2,000 or more in
habitants, except such as has been taken from
animals inspected and certified before slaugh
ter by the proper local inspectors, and pro

MINERS AND OPERATORS.
Tbe Jolut Convention at Columbus, it..
Not Hariuouious A Strike Probable.
Colcmbi-s, O., March 14. The joint con
vention of miners and mine operators resumed
proceedings here yesterday morning, with
Alexander Dempster, of Philadelphia, pre
siding. Tbe greatest obstacle that confronted
the convention was the condition of affairs in
Indiana. Here tbe operators firmly demand
a reduction over last yaar's prices of 20 cents
on the ton. This the miners were indisposed
to listen to.
Tbe joint scale committee reported that it
was unable to come to any agreement upon
prices at its meeting bald a short time ago.
although the following scale bases were
proposed for tbe mine operators and re
jected by the miners: Ohio, B0 cents per
ton. Pennsylvania, 09 cents; Indiana, for
bituminous coal, 30 cents per ton, and for
block coal Oft cents per ton. The miners
Stand out for last year s prices, which are
as follows: Ohio, 65 and 70 canta per ton;
Pennsylvania 74 and 7 cents per ton ; In
diana, for bituminous 65 sents and block
coal 60 cents par ton. The report ot the
committee was laid upon the table for the
time being, and the Indiana operators and
miners held a conference which resulted in a
communication from the operators to the
convention stating that they desired to with
draw from tbe convention and wouli not be
bound by any action taken by it This ac
tion was in view of the impossibility of com
ing to any satisfactory terms.
A committee was appointed to confer with
the Indiana operators, and reported that they
could not be found in the city. The conven
tion occupied the entire day and several hours
at night in attempting to reach an agreement
upon a scale of prices to be paid miners, but
so far the effort have been in vaiu. The In
diana delegation of operators have refused to
have any further connection with the con
vention, and left for their homes last even'
lng. Tbe prospects for trouble in tbe Indiana
coal region are very good, in fact, they could
not be better.

A COMPLICATION IN DIVIDENDS,
Which Leaves the Holders, of C, M. St.
P. Common Oat In the Cold.
New York, March 14. At the meeting of
directors of the Chicago, Milwaukee & tit
Paul Railroad company yesterday a resolu
tion was adopted changing the fiscal year so
as to end June 30, instead of Dec. 31. A divi
dend was then declared of 12 per share on the
preferred stock, payable April 20, to holders
of record on April 10.
This action complicates the relations of the
common stock to the preferred stock. The
preferred Is entitled to 7 per cent per annum
baforathe common receives anything. If
tbe dividend last spring of 9 14 per nl on
common M enargea to earolnr or toe pre
ceding year and tbe dividend last September
of X per oant la Charged to earnings of
1888, then 6 per nent. will have to be paid on
the preferred next fail in order to entitle tbe
common to reosivs dividends. Or If the Stf
per cent dividend of September and the pres
ent 3 par oetit. dividend should be calculated
in the Tear ending June 80, 1899, then tbe
common could receive nothing until tbe pre
ferred bad received 7 par cent In the year
ending June 80, 1590.
It was not believed before the meeting that
any dividend would be declared, but tbe ex
tension of the fiscal year made on possible.
If o other business was transacted, and the ex
pected resignation of western directors was
The reason assigned for changing the fiscal
year is the faot that the Inter-state commerce
commission, the railway commissions of the
various states and tbe Wisconsin legislature
now require railway reports to be made for
tbe fiscal year ending June 80. Outsiders,
however, explain the action aa a means of
retting around the difficulty caused by the
faot that the surplus applicable to dividends,
aa of Dec 31, amounted to leas than 1 per
Illinois Central Meeting;.
Chicago, March 14. The annual meeting
of the stockholders of the Illinois Central
road took place here yesterday. There were
two parties presen a minority party repre
sented by F. B. Cxley and D. R. Howe, of
Hartford, Conn., and the party sustaining
the present nianag jment But the latter had
859,456 shares to tie former's 7,979. Tbe mi
nority opposed tho approval of the minutes
of tbe directors' meetings during tbe past
year, and asked f r a representation on tbe
board of directoj-s, but couldn't get it,
their highest vo e being 10,300 shares.
Then a resolution was offored pro
viding that no extensions, leases or consoli
dations bhould be I lade until the same should
be voted for by tt e stockholders. President
Fish opposed it; sa d that it had already been
decided upon and that the resolution was a
reflection on the directors ; but as Cooley in
sisted Fish said he would vote for it and it
was nearly unan tnoualy adopted. Ayer,
Luttgt-n and Auch ncloss were elected direc
tors for three yeai-s, and as a further con
cession to the minority George Bliss was put
on the board until March, 1800.

AN INDIANA DECISION FOUND,
Giving the Legislature the Power to Create
and II U Offices.
Indianapolis, Mtj-ch 14. A discovery
was made yesterday which practically settles
the right of the logidature to create offices
and fill them by election. In 1S53 the office
of attorney general vaa created by the legis
lature and filled by election. The governor
denied the authority of that body to take
such action and the case was taken to the
supreme court Some one in looking over
the Eighth Indiana report yesterday found
the decision in that case. The court upheld
the power of tbe leg! Uature to create offices
and select incumbent!. The case is identical
with those of the officers just elected by the
legislature and prao itally settles the con
troversy between the governor and that body
in favor of the latter.

London, March 1-'. St James Hall wa
filled to overflowing lust night on tbe occa
sion of tbe long heralded reoeption to Par
uelL The hall was profusely decorated with
flags, flowers, etc., and the gathering was re
markably enthusiastic. John Morley pre
sided, and upon taking the chair delivered an
earnest and eloquent speech. The absence of
Gladstone, be said, was greatly regretted by
all, but be was assured and in return
would assure his audience that the great
leader of the Liberals would be present if it
were not for tbe fact that he bad been earn
estly besought and prevailed upon by his
friends to spare himself for another occasion,
when the cause of Ireland would be advo
cated before a body competent to take action
on the questions he presented. Gladstone
would not, Morley said, spare himself of bis
own free will, because be plainly sees that the
time is fast coming when we will surely get
to the bottom of these Irish proceedings.
Whatever form borne rule may take it must
rest upon a foundation of mutual respect and
good will. He severely censured the entire
course of The Times against Parnell and bis
colleagues, and rejoiced in the downfall of
the fabric it had reared.
Parnell in rising to speak was greeted with
perfect bedlam of apnlause, tbe ovation
basting many miuutes. He was sure, he said,
that bis countrymen in Irelaud, Australia
and America would be equally glad upon
hearing of this reception. He had, however,
not much to say, and would reserve his last
words on the vital subject for tbe witness
box and the house of commons.
He referred briefly to The Times' charges.
and then closed as follows: "I think we are
entitled to ask all thinking, reflecting man
and w-omeii in England to consider this: Is it
right thttt the future and tho liberties of Ire
land should tie dependent upon a casual pub
lication ot a rorged letter by Tbe Times on the
morning of a great division! Cries of "Sa"
It bas been admitted on oath by the manager
of The Times that the publication was pur
posed to affect the division. Cries of
"Shame." Now let us come to the question
of the government of Ireland. The land
question, for instance, is only one example of
the bungle evf ry English government makes
in an at tempt to rule Ireland from West
minster. I do not any that the load question
is an Irish question, but I bring it forward as
a most salient example ot the unfortunate In
capacity of the English parliament to do jus
tice to Ireland."
Referring at length to the history of the
laud question, the imprOvemeuts made by
tenants, and the fact that the occupants had
built their houses, the speaker proceeded.
"You English men and women ought to re
flect when you read of forcible resistance iu
some canes by Irish tenants against armed
force that it is not real resistance, because it
amounts to such rebalance as a fly might
make to an elephant about to crush it under
Its foot cheers and laugnter; but wbeu you
hear these things you must refWt that, after
all, these people are being exjiellod from
bouses tbey built themselves and which are
their own property, although the law has not
yet efficiently protected that property. You
must se that it is sometimes not in human
nature to endure and withstand this provoca
tion as passively as we desire they should for
the sakfc of the future of their country, and
that sometimes their manhood revolts and
they strike a blow in their own dofenoe.1"
Pamoll recited a pitiful example of misery.
and coutluued: "That is the history of many
men wbo are denounced to-day as dynaml-tafd-i
and Fenians. And although from every
point of view We condemn violence and ille
gal and unconstitutional action from the
point of view of the interests of Ireland, from
the point of view of morality, and of hope
and confidence in the future yet sometimes
we can not help thinking that after all there
has been much in tbe lesson that English mis
govcrnment bas taught Ireland for genera
tions to justify or excuse tbe actions of these
rah. hot-headed men cheers men who, de
spairing of parliamentary agitation, losing,
and justly, all trust in their Irish representa
tives, who so repeatedly had betrayed the
constituencies which trusted them, turned to
criminal niPthol as the only hope for tho
ruture 01 Ireland.
'But it is an honorable tboueht which I
feel to-night that since the introduction of
tbe great measure of 19S0 Ireland has defin
itely turned her back upon all these base,
hopeless, and desperate courses; that she is
confident that in the ways of the constitution
lie ber safety, and that under the genius and
guidance of that great and devoted English
man, Gladstone prolonged cheers, with the
new hote that bas come into nil our hearts
and breasts, the day of ultimate freedom for
Ireland can not be long deferred. "

few remarks and was areeted with dafeniuz

Land Litigation The President Kept
Busy Capital Gossip.
Washington City, March 14. Nomina
tions to office do not go to the senate very
rapidly, there having been but three Of im
portance sent In yesterday. These were as
Eugene Schuyler, of Now York, to be as
sLstant secretary of statu.
Walker Mlalne, of Maine, to be examiner
of claims for the dearment of state.
Cyrus Bussey, of New York city, to be as
sistant sorretary of the interior.

men lor the places. He urged the president
to allot the deiMti-tmental places to the several
states. If the Illinois delegation knew what
places were assigned to them tbey would
meet and arree on suitable men. If the
president didn't like the mn he iifd not ap
point them ; the delegation would make new
nomination. Senator Farwell insisted that
Asa Matthews, of Illinois, was just the man
for coimniiMouer of internal revenue, and it
never would do to appoint a West Virginian
to an office whore the chief work was to pre
vent me manufacture or moonshine whisky
in the south. The praudeut replied that the
appointment had not beeu decided on, and
then Senator Farwell left. Senator Cullom
didu't see that calling at the White Houe led
to any visible result, and he was tired of
