Washington dippHtche have brought
to light a letter from Congressman Wil
son from Indiana, in regard to President
Harmon. It starts out in the true style
of republican profanity as follows:
"D m him," said Mr. Wilson in this
note, -I spent l,eK' to get him elected
to tlie senate from Indiana. I tried to
et him to help me to a consulship. He
was colder than a fih worm. It busted
me, and I went to Washington Territory
crane some noney and spent another f 2,
000 dowR in Oregon to carry the June
election in t8 and put another 11.000 in
the state campaign fund later. What do
I get? Soupl I havn't been able to get
an office for a friend. Wannamaker locks
tbe doors of all the big postofflces against

The establishment of a great library at
Washington to be devoted chiefly to the
literature, historical, geographical and
otherwise, of the western continent, was
agreed upon at the late Pan-American
conference as being in all respects a suit
able memorial of the meeting. It was at
the same time, and very appropriately.
' agreed that the dedication of tbe library
should take place in October, 1892, upon
the 40uth anniversary of the discovery
of America by Columbus. Congress has
been officially advised of this action
through the state department, with tbe
farther recommendation that an appropri
ation of $250,000 be made for the erec
tion of a library building, with which
could also be connected the international
bureau of information proposed by tbe
conference. As all the Latin-American
countries will be valuable contributors to
the library, adding largely to its equipment
and insuring a collection of which there is
at present nothing like a counterpart, and
the importance of which will be at once
recognized, the government of tbe United
States can well afford to provide tbe
proper edifice, and will honor itself in oo
doing, as well as create a new and endur
ing bond of fraternity between itself and
tbe other American republics.

SAN FRANClst-o. June 16. Advices from (
Japan state that the students jf Tokio

New Jersey missionary who was attacked
and beaten by them some weeks ago. Mr.
Imbrey has entirely recovered, tha excite

The distress among thousands of the

this is probably only the forecast of the
suffering that is to follow. Th s outlook

Macomb, Ills., Juue 16. Two hundred

pointed to canvass the county ;nd raise

was to have been preached jesterday,
but on account of the high stat-d of pub

life of the reputed author of her ruin
it was deemed best to postpone it indefi

determined that the murder shall not go

far in keeping in check those who are anx

Starters In the American Derby at Chi
cagoJohn 1 Sullivan Snubbed.'
Chicago, June 16. The Herald has an
article on base-ball which takes a very
gloomy view of the situation, especially as
regards the Brotherhood. It says that the
game, so far as the two leagues are con
cerned, is going to smash. The at tendance
at the contests the past week, while favor
able to the National League, has been so
small that neither organization has made .
any money. In figuring up the financial
situation, it says that the Brother
hood aggregation must have an
average attendance of 8,01)0 at
each game during the season to pay the
net cost, and puts the players salarUs at
the neat sum of :2,000. The article says
that the players of the Brotherhood first
scan the grand stand and then decide to
put up good or bad ball according to
whether the attendance is large or small.
Some figures on Attendance.
According to a table printed in The
Tribune the total at ten. I.sm-e for the sea
son, up to Friday uight, counting only
one game where two were played for one
admission, was as follows: league (ltd
games) 24!UKW; average ier game, 1,5511.
brotherhood (If! games) HT3.011; average,
2,3!1. The league had a better showing
Saturday than for a long time; indeed, it
is doubtful if so good a record of attend
ance has been made before this season. It
t-hould be remembered that the figures
represent four cities for the Brotherhood
and three for the league. They are as
follows: league, 8,7SO; Brotherhood 10,
1U5. During last week the Brotherhood
average per game fell off to 1,!W, while
the league average was 1,.V&
