Friday, June 21, 1889.
Tbb New York World almanac and
bureau of information for 1889 is one of
the most exhaustive, complete,- reliable
and valuable works of the kind ever
issued. The book, which contains 288
pages, comes in pamphlet form, or
with board covers, and is a useful
auxiliary to the desk of any business
man. The World now has the largest
circulation of any paper in the world,
the average number printed daily during
the month of March last being 545.468.

heretofore asserted, politics should be en

Exeter, N. H., June 21. The expulsion
of a M. Brice, son of Calvin S. Bi ice, from
Phillips' Exeter academy, has produced a
sensation. Young Brioe was very popular
with his class, and after his expulsion they
met and elected him rlass president, and be

Nashvtlax, Tenn., June 2L All the mail
that left the Nashville postofflca for the
south on the night of May t has disappeared.
The fact has been withheld by the poetoffiae
officials that the investigation might not be
hampered. For two days a government in
spector or detective has been in the city, but
he has proceeded so quietly that his pres
ence has been known to only attaches of the
department The mail for southern points,
as far as New Orleans, was arranged as
usual, put In a pouoh, locked up and deliv
red at the door of the postoffloe to the
driver or the wagon wbioh carries mail to
the station. The pouch was locked up In
in is wagon, which drove off toward the sta
tion, and that is the last beard of it as yet.
How It Was Found Out.
The loss of the pouch was detected In two
or three days, an I in this way: According to
a rule of the government a number of south
ern poatofflcds are required to daily remit to
the Nashville ptxtofflce any excess of receipts
over a certain sum, which varies according
to ine volume or business done at a place.
This is done that no large amount of money
may be stored at any office. Receipts for
(nese remittances are daily sent to the post
masters forwarding the money.
A Lot of Vouchers Mlsslnsr.
On May 0 the postmasters to whom receipts
were due from Postmaster Cuirey for re
mittance upon May 6 wrote that their
vouchers had not arrived. The banks at
Franklin, Columbia and Pulaski then notified
htm of the failure to get checks, drafts, etc.
Proof that the entire mail from Nashville to
the south bad disappeared rapidly accumul
ated and Vr. Currey made an investigation.
He learned. It is stated, that the mail pouch
had been delivered at the door of the post-
omce, as nsuaL to the driver of the con
tractor's wagon. The clerks on the train
whioh should have received the mail stated
that they had never seen anything of it.
Notified the Department.
Currey, on May 13, notified the department
at Washington City. Nothing further was
beard in this connection until, as stated. Mr.
Btubbs, a special agent, came to Nashville
last Tuesday to hunt the affair down. It is
impossible now to leant how much money
was in the mail. It was destined for a large
and important territory, and the presump
tion is mat ine poucn contained much valua
THE MAN THEY WANTED.
Bnrke Fnlly Identified by a Chicago Police
Officer Confessions Mooted.
Chicago, June SL That the man under
arrest at Winnipeg, Man., is the Martin
Burke wanted here for complicity in the
murder of Dr. Cronin was settled beyond
doubt yesterday. A few days ago Officer
Collins, who .knows Burke well, was sent to
Winnipeg for the express purpose of ascer
taining if they had the right man there.
Yesterday a despatch was received from him
that he had fully identified the prisoner. .
Bnrke Put In Irons.
As soon as the authorities had heard Col
lins' statement Burke was handcuffed and
transferred from the polios station to the
provincial jail, a warrant for his arrest on
two charges of murder being sworn out be
fore Judge Barnes. Collins swore that the
facta would warrant the prisoner's extradi
tion. Be is terribly broken down and scared
and it is believed in Winnipeg that he will
make a confession before he returns to the
Another Confession Coming.
Rumors are current that Iceman Sullivan
is on the eve of making a confession. Yes
terday afternoon he made a request that he
should be removed to the boys' quarter of
the Jail, an isolated part of the building, and
it was granted. The jail officials believe that
this move is preparatory to a "squeaL" and
that the prisoner will unbosom himstfti be
fore many hours.
Death Interfered with Crean's Plans.
A portion of yesterday afternoon's ses
sion of the grand jury was occupied in the
taking of testimony showing that as far back
as 1S3 Dr. Cronin had stated to intimate
friends that his life was in danger, and that
if anything happened to him Timothy Crean
should be held responsible. Timothy is dead
and buried. For three years a stately shaft
bas adorned bis mound. Burke, the Winni
peg suspect, was present at its dedication,
and it was by means of a photograph taken
on the spot that he was identified as the mys

The police are now looking for a man
named Cooney, who is said to hava been a
chuoj of Burke.

Seems To Bo Something of a "Jay."
Winmpeo, Man., June 21. It has been
learned that Calder, the agent who sold the
ticket from Winnipeg to Liverpool to Burke,
was the man who spotted the suspect and
sent for Chief McRae to arrest him. Burke,
in buying the ticket said that be wanted
one which would take him all the way
through British territory, as be had had
some trouble in the states and did not want
to risk himself south of the boundary line.

Taekle Henry George Salisbury and
London, June 2L Labor organizations
are making rapid progress all over Germany,
and in the larger cltifls the workers in all tha
industries employing many men are already
thoroughly organized and eager to test con
clusions with their masters. As a result
strikes are of daily occurrence, and in many
cases where strikes are avoided it is only
through timely concessions by employers.
Every mason in the city of Nuremberg
dropped his work yesterday at a pre-arranged
signal in an effort to compel employers to
concede demands for shorter hours. In the
city of Brunswick all the joiners also struck
with tbe same object in view, while in Berlin
disagreements on the question of wages re
sulted in tbe inauguration of a strike by the
furriers and saddlers of the city.
The Men Learning Their Power.
Never before has Germany witnessed so
much friction between master aud man ss ia
now being experienced everywhere. The
German workman is just waking up to a
realization of the power he can wield through
intelligent organization, and there is every
indication that tbe present strikes are only
the forerunners of a grnwal uprising of the
poorly paid and hard-worked Genutn wage
earners in all lines of industry.

Smith's Keeent Address Fully Indorsed
The Badge Affair.
Providence, R. L, June 21. In the spring
of 1886 the people of the state adopted a con
stitutional amendment prohibiting the man
ufacture or sale in tbe state of intoxicating
liquors. The "wet" men have carried on a
vigorous campaign for its repeal, aud at tbe
last session of tbe legislature another amend
ment was ordered submitted to tbe people re
pealing the prohibitory amendment The
election on the question took place yesterday,
and considering the difference in the vote of
the two states, the "dry" men got a worse de
feat than they did in Pennsylvania.
Comparison of the Tote.
By tbe constitution it required a three
fifths vote to repeal the amendment, and the
result is nearly a three-fourths vote for re
peal The total vote was 28,499 for repeal of
the amendment and 9,851 against repeal
The amendment is therefore repealed by
5,469 more than the required three-fifths of
the total vote. The amendment was adopted
In 1886 by a vote of 15,113 to 9,230. The vote
in this city was 11,919 for repeal, 2,940
agaiust repeal. Pawtucket voted 2,657 for
and 710 against repeal. The official an
nouncement of the vote will 1 made some
time between July 15, when the oilioial count
must be completed, and July 20.
THE SONS OF AMERICA.
They State Their Position as to Aliens and
Religion Officers Fleeted. j
Washington City, June 2L The.
Patriotic Order of Sons of America yester
day prepared a long statement for the press
explanatory of the badge incident at Wednes
day's White House reception. - In a series of
articles they set forth the objects of the
order, and in conclusion they say:
We call esjocial attention of those reporters
wbo have styled us as "Know-Nothings" and
"anti-Cathoiics" to article &, in which "we
cordially welcome all foreigners who come to
this country with the earnest desire of be
coming loyal American citizens," and we
quote from our official expose: "We have no
quarrel with any man on account of nation
ality or religion, but we wish to accord
equal justice to all American citizens."
As to Pernicious Forelgnisin.
The article from the address of our na
tional president, so extensively quoted, re
quires no apology, and this order in national
convention assembled unhesitatingly declares
that there Is no room in this republican gov
eminent for any organization, under what
soever name, which advocates and practices
murder and assassination, and we believe
that every intelligent citizen, native or for
eign born, who has read the evidence pre
sented to the coroner's jury at Chicago rela
tive to tbe Cronin murder has felt this to be
true, and that their existence is a constant
menace to our government.
The Badge Incident.
The badge incident so sensationally char
acterized as a "Burchardism" is a misrepre
sentation. Tbe reception by the president
was cordial anl gratifying to the members
of this order, and the fact that he has prom
ised, it in the city, to review our parade on
Friday is evideuce that no ill-feeling has
been generated between the meiub.'rs of this
order and our country's chief executive.
