President Harrison appears to lack popu

With this mind, no doubt, the politicians
of the capital have Ixen telling a good
deal about that slap given the president
one night last week at the National thee

half of the spectators being Knights Temp

one of the minstrels made use of the
photographs of three public men Harri

Washinotom I itt, OJt 17. An authori
titive statement, prepared at tb Interior
department, in support of the action of Seo
retary Noble iu rewinding Commissioner
Tanner's order advancing p naiooa f roin $3
to It per mouth In certain case, was given
to tbe pre. last night. It begins by stating
tbat Conimbsioner Taouer arbitrarily and
UKn bis own motion proposed to re-rat
seme MS, 000 men by advancing their pensions
from i to (4 per month, and then quotes
the law on the subject section 4 6'., re
vised statute. Tb statement thengoeaoo
to comment on the law aa follows: "Thus
where a claimant disability is total, be la
given under the statute a fixed amount. This
was formet ly 1, and is now fixed at differ
ent amounts for (bffjrent cast, among oth
er IIS total, and the amount tbat would be
$H tor a 'total disability' I subiivided into
fraction tbat is, leas than total for tb lesser
degree of disability. '
Method of Rating Pension.
"Thus if one man te found to bo very little
disabled by tbe medical board he ia given
Moih, or tl ; or if he te still mora disabled,
3-lttth's, or ti; and if still more disabled,
S-lStb's, or VISihXand so on. It a man,
for instance, ba lost a portion of hi Anger,
and te thus to an appreciable degree dis
abled, be may have been rated by ome ex
amining board at H for that, and so in soine
other oaas for seme slight disability. If,
however, be bas suffered from chills or mal
aria, or some other disntiiiity contract d by
biro by exposure in tbe swamps during his
service as a soldier, and which may not prove
permanent, or may increase, be may have
been thought slightly disabled, if at all, and
eutilled st the beginning and at innat to a
small fraction of total, say two dollars,
which la the amount Axed in many of tb
disabilities allowed. Ii this latter cue it
might possibly have been a question with
t'ie board whether b. was lo get anything,
or wa disabled t all; but from a lenient
construction of his casa tbey have given
Inja.tle te Hlch-Oraded Men.
"If now, I y an order of the commissioner
without regard to this medics) examination,
tb man who lias thus ben receiving $i te
advanced to (4 without tb man who was
more disabled, and who bas been rated at
$4, being himself advanced. It Is obvious
that Injustice te don to the higher graded
man, because be te put upon a par with a
man evidently tess disabled And so, be
tween soldier and soldier, there te an unfair
preference of tbe I'M Injured. If tbe
raase, however, era all referred to the ex
amining surgeons, and they find the disa
bility to be equal to 14. and it h then al
lowed, everything has been done in due or
der and according to law, and upon a basis
t'ist sny msn ran understand, and which
will have limit. rlxd by medical knowledge,
experience and profeeional reputation.
Tanaer'e Letter and Order.
The commiaxioaer, whose order has given
rise to this decision, in bis recent letter to
Mr. Dalxell did not claim tbat his order waa
to be construed according to It terms, for
be soi l:
" -While commissioner I isnued two orders,
which I thought and still think were mighty

tion before their home board, with a view
to putting tbem np to at least M per month
pension, or drop them off tlie rolls, fa- it waa
and te my opinion tbat, fur a man who te
worthy of any pension at all, a dollar a week
is small enough to consider a ponsion.'
Tbe order Itself reeds: 'In all cases where a
pensionable disability te found tbe rate al

the New South'. Progress Bine the
Atlaitta, Ga., Oct 17. Governor Hill,
f New York, attended the Piedmont ezpo
litlon yesterday. Tbe distinguished New
Yorker was made much of by the people of
this part of tba country, and wherever he
went was the obearved of all observera,
When he appeared upon the stand at the ex
position the cheers were loud and long con
tinued. He began with a word of greeting
from his state to Georgia "tbe empire state
of the south" referred to Elitor Grady's
speech in New England two years ago, and
said it touched a chord of sympathy whose
silvery tones havs not yet died away; con
gratulated the people of the new south on
tbe evidences everywhere observable of
their progress and its recovery from tbe
terrible effects of the civil war.
Reference to the Rebellion.
He then continued aa follows: "When I
reflect upon tbe scenes tbat took place in
this vicinity only twenty-five years ago
how a stubborn and loyal army, battling for
a causa which It believed to be just, for
homes, for families, for country, for life,
was driven southward step by step by a force
superior in numbers and resources; how,
day after day, the sound of cannon and
musketry reverberated through these val
leys and the flames of burning homes lit up
tbe horison; how vigorously the federal
forces, spurred on by the one desire of pre
serving the union of your fathers and theirs,
Fought their way through shot snd shell, de
stroying homes as they went and devastating
fields; bow finally those brave men in gray,
iriven from every stronghold, fell back
within the fortifications of this fair city;
snd bow at last At'anta fell aa a Norther
ser old enough to bave observe! tbe ten
dency of tbe ante-bellum south, I am
amas-sd; as an American citizen, proud of my
country's institutions and form of govern
ment, I am rejoioed.
io Apprehensions for tha Future.
"In the rapid development of the south
snd in tbe conditions of society which now
prevail here, there are suggestions for seri
ous tbougbt I am not one f those pessi
mists who, while recognising and admitting
the glorious prosperity of your in iustries
lines the war, profess to see in soma of
your institutions and conditions cause for
grave apprehension fur the future. Such
apprehensions are due, perhaps, to tfas agi
tation of selfish politicians, to that ignoranoe
which does not understand the southern na
ture, to tbe surviving remnant of old-time
Jealousy and suspicion.
Problems To tie Grappled With,
"I would not have you understand me aa
depreciating present dangers or as belittling
the obstacles which now confront you. Great
problems will have to be grappled with, and
tbe north ia watching to see how you will
solve them. One of these problems is the
education or tbe masse. Tbe worst foe to
our Democratic forms of government is ig
norance. It Is a startling fact indeed, which
was revealed by tbe census of 1830, tbat in
some of your states half the population could
not read or writ Tbe census of 18A) will
make a better showing, I am sure.
The Clas.ee and tha Mnm,
"In the field of industrial enterprise you
have great opportunities Your resources
are inexhaustible; sea that thoy are not
monopobxsd. Discourage such legislation
aa tends to enrich classes at
the expense of tha diisks. It
te within your power to do much towards se
curing more equitable relations between
employers and employed. Thus far you
have been particularly fortunate in avoid
ing disastrous lab r agitations. But wbea
there shall he oollected in your manufactur
ing cities large bodies of workingraen, when
rivalry for employment and good wages
shall bave become keener, you will have to
meet serious questions, and if you would
take warning from tbe north's experience,
you will prepare to meet tbem now. Your
employers must realize what ours bave been
slow to realize: tbat one man's rights are the
rights of another. It the lienelits of your
prosperity be enjiyed not by the few who
would use them for their own selfish ends,
but encourage that broad human charity
which looks to tbe greatest good of tbe
The Negro Quest ion.
"You bave within your borders vast num
bers of an unfortunate and long oppressed
race. It is your interest, as it is your duty,
to lift them out of the estate in which fate
has placed them, and help them to assume
tbe responsibilities of citizenship. The ex
perience of tha past twenty years bas proved
to you the advantages of free labor. Most
of yon well remember the predictions of
your statesmen before the war tbat without
slaves tbe south could not profitably pro
duce cotton, yet with free labor you have
raised more cotton in tha last ten years than
you rawed in the twenty years before Sum
er was fired on, notwithstanding that only
a part of your population has been engaged
in that industry, and that, in the meantime,
your manufacturing centers bave become
formidable rivals of tbe north.
Tho Matter of Solidity.
"It is sometimes said in tbe north tbat the
oust. I. Ho M im slid for good gov
ernment, .olid for tba welfare of it. poopla,
solid for integrity in private and official lira,
solid in its opposition to a eternal admin
istration of public affairs, (olid against con
gressional extravagance, solid in i'a renun
ciation of the errors of the past, solid for
American ideas, solid for iu devotion to tbe
new nation, solid in it aspiration for a
higher civiiizaliou, and solid for all that
would make us a prosperous and powerful
republic. Of such solidity I am not afraid.
I see no dangers in such unity as springs
from tbe noblest motives and subserves the
most exalted patriotism.'
After Governor Hill's speech Henry W.
Grady and Roe well P. Flower made short
addreases. Then came the sbsm battle and
review of troops. Last evening Governor
Hill and party were tendered receptions at
tbe homes of half a dozen leading citizens,
AWFUL COAL PIT DISASTER.
Fifty Men Bo Frightfully Bnrnad aa to
London, Oct 17. An explosion occurred
In the Bentilee colliery at Longton, County
of Stafford, at an early hour yesterday morn
ing. Seventy miners wars lu the pit at the
time of the accident, only eleven of whom
are alive. The pit waa completely wrecked,
and the task of getting out the buried miners
will be one of great difficulty. A band of
volunteer speedily commenced making ex
plorations for tbe recovery of the bodies,
and tbe corpses of fifty victims wtre soon
brought to light
turned Beyond Recognition.
Later. The search for the bodies of the
other victim of tbe colliery explosion bad
to be abandoned, as the fire-damp made it
impossible to proceed with tbe work. Of
the fifty bodies so far taken out, not a sin
gle one bas been identified, as the features
in every case were so frightfully burned that
recognition even by those nearest and dear
est proved impossible. Ia most cue th
clotbing was also cusnpletely burned off the
bod lea of the victims and it te feared tbat
but few of the fifty corcbd bodies now
lying in two rows on each side of tbe rona a
few feet from tbe month of the abaft, will
ever be identified by the wives and mothers
whose wails for the dead are ringing oat
The Shock Killed Her.
An old man and bis three sons who were
in the mine when tbe explosion occured were
lost, and when tbe new was brought horns
to the old man's wife, the mother of th boys

tbe shock having killed her.
The latest estimate of the loss of lifs places

The Latest Arrest in the Cronin
1IB. ALEX. SULLIVAH'S SECRETARY.
Heavy M. Stoltenbers; Taken In for
Knowing Something About the Jury
Bribery The Eminent Irishman Him
self Again Under Police Surveillance
A Ramification of the Plot Leads Into
Hla Law Office.
Chic A so, Oct 17. Henry M. Btoltenberg,
private secretary and stenographer for Al
exander Bullivan, wss arrested last even
ing for alleged complicity In the jury brib
ing In the Cronin case. It is believed tbat
Btoltenberg acted as the confidential
agent or messenger who carried messages
to John Graham and Fred Smith, who were
arrested a few days ago for Jury bribing.
Stoltenberg's arrest ia by all odds one of
the most sensational episodes of the entire
case, for it brings the investigation Into tbe
office of the man who has been popularly
supposed to be tbs controlling spirit of all
that bas happened. Judge Longenecker de
clined to state last night whether or not
Btoltenberg had admitted anything during
his brief interview, and when he was pressed
bard for a statement he also declined to deny
that he bad been placed in possession of new
and important facts.
Btoltenberg Connection with the Case.
Btoltenberg' connection with the crime
though the attorney for the prosecution un
derstand it thoroughly, ia still one of tbe se
crets of tbe state's attorney's office. The
only thing that is known about him is that
both Bail If Hanks and Fred W. Smith, who
were Jobnnv Graham's chief lieutenants in
the business of getting bribsd jurors to vote
for tbe acquittal of Cougbliu and his fellow
prisoners, have made frequent use of his
name in their confessions. It is claimed
tbat Hanks, whose story is being zealously
guarded by the state's attorney, said he fre
quently met Btoltenberg in Graham's com
pany, and thnt the clerk see ma! to take as
much interest in the progress of tbe con
spiracy as if be hail something vital at stake.
In fact, when Hanks learned who Btolten
berg was he came to regard him as tbe man
who would furnish tbe funds necessary to
influence tlie judgment of the man whosJ
was io a procureit a sear, in tne jury tox.
Later. It is reported that Btoltenberg
was not arrested so much for what be had
done as for what be knew. A rumor is cur
rent tbat he overheard a very animated con
versation yesterday between Kavaoaugh and
Mr. Bullivan. Tha state's attorney last night
mads tbe following significant remark to a
"He Stol ten berg is not worrying about
what we mean to do with bim. Let me tell
you be is not concerned balf so much as
someone else is w bo wants to knew where
he ia being kept"
Sullivan trader Surveillance.
Alexander Sullivan's residence was placed
under police surveillance last night for tbe
first time since early in tbe Cronin investi
gation. Detective Hyatt went to the house
about 11 o'clork, and at a late hour was still
pacing quietly along near tba entrance.
Other detectives at the sami hour made a
search of a large residence building on On
tario street where a brother of Cooney "the
Fox" formerly boarded.
Salomon Will Not Stand Trial.
Bailiff Mark L. Salomon, one of tbe al
leged jury bribers, was released from jail
yesterday afternoon on flo,(XK) bail Ia re
ply to a question from a representative of
the United Press Salomoo said: "I don't
think I shall stand trial. " This admission te
probably proof positive that tbe erring bail
iff has made a complete confession and will
not make any defense when he comes to trial,
but throw himself on tbe msrey of the
Fred W. Smith's lawyer strenuously de
nied yesterday tbat Smith has confessed or
has anything to oonfesa.

THE LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEERS.
Chief Arthur Opens the Convention with
a Characteristic Address.
DENVga, Colo., Oct 17. Ths Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers assemble! in an
nual session in this city yesterday morning,
Chief Engineer Arthur presiding. After
welcoming tbe delegates and assuring them
of his belief in the satisfactory results of ths
present convention, and with what great
pleasure he bad watched the grovlh of tbe
order since its organisation, and tbe results
it had attained, Chief Arthur said:
"Tbe present time represents the turning
point in tbe history of tbe order, for it bss
become apparent that a feeling essentially
radical bas crept in an 1 taken possession of
a few of our members. This is dansrsrous
and must be suppressed; for, owing to this,
statements seemingly contradictory have
crept out and become public, which could
never bave happened had there been an one
ness of thought and an honesty of purpose.
Climb Whan You Can.
"If a man's ability extends beyond that
required by the brotherhood then it becomes
his duty to doff tbe begrimei habiliments of
the mechanic and assume tbat position for
which he is particularly gifted. To nurse
one's dissatisfaction and scatter it broad
cast to take root in the imagination of other
men is sinful and blighting to character."
He admonished the membars to keep their
personality intact and not to allow false mo
tives to in.tuce them to sulscribe to laws
which as soon as passed will make tbem cog
nisant of tbe necesKV for repeal
The Strike the Last Resort.
He reiterate.1 wnb emphasis his former
statement that tbe organisation was law
abiding, an 1 said: "To-day I clearly define
our position toward railroad corporations
when I say that only as a last resort do we
sanction a strike."
Mr. Arthur stated that the membership of
the order was 'Jrt.OOfl. Benefits paid during
