INDIGNANT ABOUT HIDES.
UttW Healer P.toioc Acalnt McKlnley'
A Motto of indignation has been aroused
among the leather dealers of New York
by Mr. McKinley's proposed duty of a
cent and a half a pound on hides. The
proposition is epcken of as preposter
ous," "ridiculous,' "monstrous" and
"outrageous, There is no division of
wnticn-nt among the dealers, Republi
can as well as Democrats entering their
protests against the measure. Mr. Nel
son, of the firm of Palen, Nelson & Co.,
aid: "I went about Boston previous to
the presidential election crying protec
tion as a gJ Republican should. I
have seen what the Harrison administra
tion has done, and I ana sati&fied with
my experience with it. I don't want
any m-jre protection. I ara not a Mug
wump in any sense. Bui I am. after
this exhibition of rgiilation on the part
of a committee whose avowej intention
was to reduce taxation, a fre trader."
What rcaies this proposed duty en
tirely characteristic of the Republican
party is tlie fact that the duty comes aa
the result of pressure from the rich and
powerful. It is understood that th

Straccsk, X. Y., April 16 Yesterday a
report of a very interesting nature was
Verified, It is the crowning eveut of the
great rebellion. It is nothing nure nor lejis
than the announcement made to very inti
mate friends here of the betrothal of Miss
Winnie Davis, the eldest daughter of Jeffer
son Davis, the late president of the Southern
Confederacy, to Mr. Alfred Wilkinson, of
this city, the grandsoa of Samuel J. May,
the great Abolition leader. Dome Rumor
has for a long time past whtfpsrel of the
possibility of such an event coming tJ pass.
The Groom's Lineage.
The life of Mi-ss Dsvts is too well known
to be repeated here, but Mr. Wilkinson's
parentage is comparatively unknown Hs
is a son of John Wilkinson, a very promi
nent figure in local history, and the grand
son of the Rev. Semuel J. May. The nans
of the Rev. Mr. May is one of the bright
gems in the Abolition kv, fcr he was the
pioneer, witn (iarrUon. E;n-Ton, Phillips,
and Longfellow, in the great work for the
freedom of the negro. 'ot only in the
United States tut in Europe also he fought
for the Abolition cause. In Great Britain
especially Mr. May lectured upon slavery to
Part of the Underground Railway.
After his removal to Syracuse Mr. May
continue! to be very active an 1 prominent
in promoting tne anti-slavery retorm. He
oon became known far and wide as a fear
less and uncompromi-ang Abolitionist. Hun
dre-is of men, women and children. Seeing
from bondage and bound for Cansda, came
to him for protection and hIp, and never
came in vain. He assisted many to escape,
among them being the celebrated J -rry Me
Henry, whose liberation Ciused such a sen-
sstion, the anniversary of which was cele
brated for several years.
May Burned in KfHgy.
As the meetings of the Abolitionists short
ly before the declaration of war were vio
lently a-ssulted in Boston and other cities.
the mover of Syracuse earnestly requested
Mr. May to prevent the holding of a meeting
here lest it should t revoke a riot. Twenty
of the most influential gentlemen of Syra
cuse, nearly half of whom wer j his parish
ioners, addressed a letter to Mr. May tebing
him that they were creditably informed
that orpsniz-d an-1 forc-.hle IT rtsto prevent
the holding of the Abolition convention
would lie made. Before the hour appointed
for the convention rioters took possesion of
the hrll whi- h Mr. May had hired for the
convention and he wa roughly used, the
meeting being prevented, and Mr. May was
burned in effigy in Hanover square. It is
this man's grandson who i to wed the
"Daughter of the Coufe '.eracy."

Hoar sai l that, as lis understood the
facts, the Democratic majority in Butte,
which a yetr ago was K had been reduced
to about iVi; and that, st Precinct 34, there
was not a single voter left. All of those ap
parent voters had gone, like last year's snow
banks. He left, he said, his "frion 1 from
North Carolina to his comic almanac"
Vance The senator from Massachusetts
derives as much comfort out of small mate
rial as any senator on this floor. My in
formation is entirely different. The city of
Butte gave a Republican majority last year;
and there has been a great "turn over" in
consequence of "subsequent proceed ings."

o'clock last night bis ideas would have been
clearer this morning.
A MISSING MEDICAL STUDENT.
He Goes to See a supposititious Sick Man
and Drop Unt of Sight.
Chkaoo, April 1(1 The mysterious dis
appearance of Vernon L Everett, a student at
the Chicago Medical college, has given the
police of this city a difficult job. The mis
sing man is the son of Dr. J. T. Everett, of
Orinnell, Is. He left his home, S3 .3 bouiS
Park avenue, on Thursday evening, April 3,
saying thct he was going to see a tick man
on Halstead street, aud has never returned,
POT been seen since by any one who knew
him. It is not known bow the summons to
attend the sick man came, whether by mes
enger, telephone or the mail, but the
"tough" character of Hulsted street at night
has aroused the fears of his friends that the
summons was a d.coy, and that the student
was waylaid, murdered and robbed on his
woy to or from the sick man's house.
