Col. Ingersoll Astonishes a Lot
' of Reporters.
GOES BACK ON THE PLUMED KNIGHT,
And IlMltrei that Half a Ioseo Repub
licans Could Make a Stronger Race
than the Premier Politicians at the
National Capital Think Cleveland Han
m Cinch on the Nomination and that
Harrison will be HI Opponent The
Third Party North and South.
Chicago, July H. Colonel Robert G,
Jngersoll was at the Grand Pacific yester
day afternoon. He was in the best of
: pirit, and aftr telling a few stories be
began to talk politics. This was surpris
ing, for he has disappointed interviewers
latIy by refusing to speak a word about
"Who willbe'lhe Republican candidate
, for president" he asked.
"Mr. Blaine," came from the reporters.
"I do&'t believe you," replied the col
onel. This was a thunderbolt, coming from
Colonel Ingersoll. When Blaine was
nominated in 1876, the nominating
speech, made by Colonel Ingerxoll, was
said to be one of the greatest efforts of his
life. ' .
lilalne Not the Strongest Man.
He has always "uad a good word for
Blaine, and only a few months ago . he
complimented the secretary of state very
highly when asked by a reporter what Mr.
Blaine's chancesvould be in 1802.
"Blaine will not be nominated," contin
ued the speaker.
"Because of his health?"
"He is not the strongest nan in the Re
publican party. The coming campaign
will be an exciting one and the Repub
licans will want their best card."
McKinley the Colonel' Choice.
"Who is stronger than Blaine''
"There are a half dozen men in the Re
publican party who would make a better
race than Blaine."
'Is McKinley one of your six?
"He is the very man if he wins the com
ing election iu Ohio. If he carries the
Buckeye state with a good majoriry he
will be nominated by acclamation. Noth
ing can stop McKinley from being the
biggest man in the Republican party if
Le is successful In the coming struggle."
Can't See the ISig Wave.
"If Secretary Blaine recovers his health
will it be possible to stop the Blaine wave
now sweeping the country?"
"I don't thiuk he is very sick and I can't
see the big wave. I have nothing against
Mr. Blaine, nor do 1 pretend to know what
will hapjien in politics a year or so hence,
but I give you my honest couvictious.
Take them for what they are worth."
NATIONAL CAPITAL VIEWS.
The Opinion (ironing that the Leader
Will He the Old One.
Washington', July 14. Political observ
ers at the national capital are rapidly com
ing to the conclusion that nothing is likely
to prevent the nomination of Grover Cleve
land by the next Democratic presidential
convention. There is, indeed, a growing
probability, now amounting almost to
certainty, that the rival candidates in 1892
will be the same as in lss Cleveland and
Harrison. "To my mind," said Senator
Kenna, "there is no doubt who the Demo
cratic candidate will tie. It is in the air.
All the signs point to Cleveland. Some
Democratic senators are opposed to him,
but that is all there is to the opposition.
Strong with the Bank and File.
"It is confined to the politicians. The
great mass of the jieople want Cleveland
and in the end their wishes must prevail.
I believe that Cleveland is stronger to-day
with the rank and file of the party than
he was when he left the White House.
He is identified with the question which is
to form the issue in the campaign of next
year the great question of wringing
from the people millions of money for uo
legitimate purposes of government. That
is bound to be the issue next year, and on
it the Democrats will win."
SURE THING IN THE NORTH.
The Third Party a Certainty There
Possibilities in the Mouth.
Washington. July H Colonel I L.
Polk, president of the Nat ional Farmers'
Alliance, has arrived here fresh from a
series of meetings in North Carolina,
where he and Congressman Tom Watson,
of Georgia, have lieen exerting their
eloquence to stir up enthusiasm in favor
of the Alliance. It is said that Colonel
Polk's speeches "squinted" toward the
formation of a third party in the south.
In an interview yesterday he said, when
asked whether there will be a third ticket
in the presidential race: . "1 will give you
a straight answer. So far as the north
west is concerned the third party has come
to stay; it will have a ticket in t be field
that will sweep Kansas, North and South
Dakota, Nebraska and other states.
A Hint to Southern Leaders.
"In the south I don't know what will be
done, but I Bay in all sincerity that if the
southern Democratic leaders do not put
put an end to their intolerance, proscrip
tion and denunciation of our order and
its principles there will be a third party
tA-ket in the south also. There is a great
deal of human nature among Alliance
men. They have stood, a good deal from
Democratic leaders, but are growing
weary, and may turu'on their detractors."
Concluded to Hire a Hall.
Boston. July 14. The Socialistic Labor
tarty and Single Tax league have this
year been refused permission to hold
meetings on, Boston common by the city
government. Sunday the party hired a
hall at which the action bf the govern
ment was denounced and a petition
drawn np demanding the right to hold
open air meetings.
Hanged Herself with Her Gown.
Hol'KINSVlLLE, Ky., July 14. Mra.
Nancy Cooper, an inmate of the Western
asylum, and a lady highly connected, sui
cided Sunday night by hanging herself
with her gown. The garment was wrapped
tightly about her neck, and one end at
tached to the bed post.- She then threw
herself forward upon the floor, and death
by strangulation was the result.
17 A Challenge for Jack McAttllffe.
NEW York, July 14. Austin Gibbons,
of Pxterson, N. J., who so easily de
feated Jim Verrall, the English light
weight champion recently, has issued a
challenge to fight Jack McAnliffe for the
lightweight championship of America,
42)000 a side and a purse.
ENDOWMENTS IN .DANGER
"rlsifV Heterodoxy Likely to Cost "Un
ion" Pretty Dearly.
New York, July 14. Eight hundred
thousand dollars, nearly the entire cash
of endowment of the Union Theological
seminary, is in jeopardy because of the ac
tion of the seminary directors in the Dr.
Bnggs controversy. The seminary was
founded in 1836 by conservative Presbyte
rians. It had no denominational alli
ances. When the institution was poor
and needy Banker Brown proposed to give
$300,000 toward an endowment, but hesi
tated because he bad no assurance of per
manency, either of existence or orthodoxy.
To secure this endowment the seminary
was placed under the authority of the
Presbyterian church. .- . 4
It Depends on the Directory.
Ex-Governor Edwin D. Morgan then
donated $150,000 upon the assurance that
the seminary was permanently under the
control of the Presbyterian church. Now
that the directorate, by a vote of 20 to 2,
refuse to be guided by the vote of the gen
eral assembly disapproving of Dr.
Briggs' election to the faclty, these and
otiier large donations may be withdrawn.
Russell Sage is waiting for the action of
the directors in the fall before deciding to
bring suit to recover his donation of $5,000.
The withdrawal of nearly the entire cash
endowment of the seminary will depend
on the action of the directors in the fall.
The Treasurer' Opinion.
E. M. Kin8)ey, treasurer of the Union
theological seminary, was seen yesterday
by a reporter regarding the above report.
Mr. Kingsley said: "Dr. Briggs was sim
ply transferred from one chair to another,
therefore it was not an original appoint
ment. In my opinion Mr. James Brown
did not give SWO.000 hesitatingly, as has
been stated. TWe gift ol ex-Governor Mor
gan of $100,"KX) for the library was made
with no reference to orthodoxy, nor did,
in my mind, the question of orthodoxy en
ter at all into his subsequent gift of $300,.
000. There is not a shred of f ruth in the state
ment that we are involved to the extent
of $800,000. In my opinion 1 would be
much nearer the amount.
FROM BALMACEDA SOURCES.
News from Chill Represents the Govern
New York, July 14. Important in
formation regarding the latest develop
ments in the Chilian trouble was received
by cable yesterday by commercial houses
with interests in that country. It is stated
that the plan to caprure the government
torpedo cruisers Almirante Lynch and

The Insurgents Badly Whipped.
On Tuesday and Friday of last week the
insurgents engaged the government in
battle at Coquimbo and were defeated
with great loss of life. All the insurgent
vessels took part in the engagement. The
attacks, it is stated, were resolved 05 by
the insurgents when they received the

New York's Attorney General on the .Pro
posed Execution Inquest.
New York, July 14. Attorney General
Tabor was asked yesterday what Le
thought of Coroner Levy's assertion that
he would snbject the body of Smiler, the
murderer, to an autopsy aud hold an in
quest upon it, and compel the witnesses to
the executions to tell all they knew and
saw. He said: Coroner Levy can do no
such thing. He has no more right to touch
the body than he has to go into a cemetery
in this city and drag out the remains of
people buried fifty years ago. The office
of coroner is limited by statute, and he
can fnly examine in case complaint is
made, and he deems it suspicious. In this
case, under the laws of the state, the man
has been executed, and physicians ap
pointed under the law have certified as to
the cause of death. It does not matter,
even if the man was roasted to death, as
long as the warden complied with the

wife murder occurred in East Dedham
yesterday, the victim being Mrs. Belle
Nagle, aged 34, who was struck down
from behind by an ax in the hands of her
husband, George Nagle. Nagle made i.n

bad cuts. Nagle is in custody and claims

cause to murder his wife, they not even
having had a quarrel. He has been
drinking hard of late.
Governor Terry on H is Muscle.
Oltmpia, Wash., July 14 There was a
sensational scene in the executive mansion
Friday. Governor Terry, taking umbrage
at a newspaper article, pitched into the re
porter, and after thundering out all the
epithets he could think of threw the
young man out of his office and instructed
his private secretary never to give him
any information. Saturday the governor,
still boiling mad, and supposing State
Auditor Lindley was the authority for the
offensive articles, walked up to the latter
in the hotel and denounced him as a liar.
The parties were separated before blows

Paris, July 14 Paris was thrown into
a state of wild excitement yesterday by
the report that President Carnot had been
shot. This rumor proved upon investiga
tion to be nntrt e, but there was a good
foundation for t be report, and indeed all
that prevented it being trne was the bad
marksmanship of Carnot's assailant. The
president was p:-esent at the ceremonies
of the official opt ning of a new thorough
fare, the Avenue de la Republique, where
he received an ent husiastic welcome.
Enter Wild-Eyed Assassin.
Suddenly a man, wild-eyed and making
insane gestures, forced his way through
the crowd and pushed past the soldiers cn
duty and at about thespot where the cere
monies were taking place. This man
rushed up to the carriage in which the
president had driven up to the new ave
nue and fired a pistol at M. Carnot. As
he did so the roan shouted, "I'll prove
that there are more hastiles to be demol
ished." President Carnot was greatiy
alarmed at what appeared to be a direct
attempt upon bis lire, but be was unhurt
and soon regained his entire presence of
Gobbled by the Police.
The man who fi:-ed the shot was prompt
ly arrested by the police, and such was the
anger of the crowd present that the offi
cers had the greatest difficulty in protect
ing their prisoner from becoming the vic
tim of the popular fury which be had ex
cited. It required the services of a strong
force of police to escort, the man in safety
to the nearest police station. Upon arrival
at the station the man's examination soon
disclosed the fact that he was a madman,
and that he had just been released from
confinement in a lunatic asylum.
Incredul Ity in London.
London, July 14 A dispatch from
Paris says that a reat deal of cheap capi
tal has been mat e out of the alleged at
tempt upon the life of President Carnot
yesterday by the president's partisans.
From the account of the incident received
here it does not appear that any serious
attempt was made to assassinate M. Car
not. Indeed, it is asserted that-the pistol
discharged by the so-called assassin was
not only not pointed at the president, but
was not loaded with a ball.
Carnot in Great Luck.
The President, . ho was not in the least
excited, was showered with congratula
tions last evening on his marvellous escape
from death, the most of which emanated
from place seekers and tuft hunters, M.
Carnot has been extremely fortunate in
the two or three incidents of this kind that
have happened since his election to the
presidency, in having for an assailant upon
each occasion a drunken madman who bad
no deadlier purpose than to attract atten
tion to himself, if indeed he had any objtc;

A German Paper's Comments.
BEKLIS, July 14 The Yossische Zei
tung regards the vfsit of the kaiser
to Hatfield House as beyond mere
courtesy. The leaser, accompanied by
German and for ign statesmen, met
the chief statesmen of England, and both
countries, it says, a-e convinced that the
visit to the bouse of Lord Salisbury sealed
the assurance of lasting friendship. The
paper contrasts the coldness of the em
peror's Russian reception with the
warmth of his reo-ptlon in England as
proving that the latter was spontaneous,
and not evoked by ' he commands of tbe
government, and stowing that interest
and inclination go together.
