Philadelphia, July 20. When United
States Senator Qnay was In Philadelphia
recently en route from Atlantic City to
liia home in Beaver, he told a friend that
he would probably retire before long from
the chairmanship of the Republican na
tional committee. He gave an his reason
the fact that his health was not very good
and he did not feel like taking upon him
self the work of another presidential cam
paign. He will remain a member of the
committee, hut proponed to retire from
the position as head of the organization
which imposed so much hard work. All
the local Republican leaders who were in
town Friday last admitted that they had
knowledge of Senator Quay's intention to
The Strain Too Heavy for Him.
Senator Quny stated at the close of the
last campaign that he would not hold the
position of chairman in another presiden
tial campaign under any consideration.
For days and nights, be said, after the
loction he rould not sleep. He has been
troubled with, insomnia ever since, and
his friends .have known for a long time
past that he could not be induced by any
possible cottcleration to hold the chair
manship in the coming presidential cam
"paign. ClarkKon To Be at the Head.
The fact has been develojed that before
the departure of ex-Internal Revenue Col
lector Martin on his western trip he had
a meeting with Senator Quay and others,
at which it was definitely stated by the
wmator that he would resign the chair
manship not later than September, and
that (ieneral James S. Clarkson, of Iowa,
would succeed Senator Quay as chairman.
From theMoNt Reliable Sonrce.
A dispatch from Pittsburg says that
Senator Quay approved the following
which was written in his presence: "The
time is approaching when the labors for
the campaign of should lie com-
snenced. I r" 5 not care to take charge of
that work. But still I do not wish to say
positively that I will resign from the
chairmanship of the Republican national
committee. That is a question that ivill
be decided later on. It was my intention
to retire immediately after " President
Harrison's election. But I was pre
Tented from doing so by circumstances
well known 10 my colleagues on the com
mittee. That desire to et-t out of a place
encumbered with so many duties has
, never abated and the time has now come
when I feel at liberty to step out." In
further conversation he denied that if be
did resign it would be owing to hi health,
which he said was fairly good, anil he was
particular to reiterate that he has not
stated that be would resign at all.
Indorses "Ret" for Chairman.
: "Who do you think will succeed you pro
Tided you resign It has been stated that
letters have been sent to different mem
bers of the committee asking if they would
consent to have J. S. Clarkson "succeed
you, and that they bad all replied favora
"That is not true," replied Senator Quay;
no such letters have been sent with my
knowledge. It is generally conceded, how
ever, that Mr. Clark ion will be elected
provided I resign, und he is well fitted for
the position, but there is no indication of
what action will be taken from the na
CLEVELAND AND THE SOUTH.
Senator Morgan Dinconmea on the Situa
tion a It Looks to Him.
Washington, July 30. Senator Morgan
has just reached Washington from his
home in AU'iama, and talks freely about
political topics and the impressions he
has gathered during his stay in the south,
where he has been ever since the adjourn
ment of congress. He does not believe
Cleveland will be nominated. "The peo
ple of the south," he says, "feel grateful to
Mr. Cleveland for having them a chance
for the wonOTful prosperity that they are
now developing. They have perfet confi
dence in his fidelity to Democratic princi
ples and policies. They are proud of his
administration. They agree with him in
the suggestions of his tariff message.
They are very deeply attached to
aim, and would give him up with very
Make It a C onutitu tional Question.
"The southern people regard antagon
ism to the remonetizing of silver and its
free coinage . as a blow at their rights,
secured to them by the constitution,
i Tney regard the refusal of men
In their own party to restore silver to its
proper functions and rights as a denial of
one of the fundamental doctrines of the
Democratic party. They deplore the ap
parent opposition of Mr. Cleveland to the
free coinage of silver and its remonetiza
tion almost as a calamity. They might
be willing under the pressure of greater
demtrnds upon their patience to avoid
other troubles even more serious, to de
lay a final demand for the free coinage of
silver, but they would do it with great re
luctance. In my opinion the Democratic
candidate will come from the wet.
A Seductive Idea Lined Out.
"I do not see, when we. produce f 100,(00,
00 a year of precious metals, one-third of
which is gold, why we cannot accumu
late coin in the treasury almost to any ex
tent that we desire, and issue coin certifi
cates, representing dollar for dollar, into
the hands of the people. In ten years
t hat sum would amount to $1,000,000,000.
Very few of the certificates would ever be
presented for redemption in metal if the
people knew the metal was in the treas
ury, and just think what a great power
the United States would be with (1,000,
000,000 in reserve. This country would
become the clearing house of the worid,
a,nd wrest from England the financial
leadership which she has held for centur
ies." THE SUB-TREASURY PLAN.
Alliance Men Are Wild Over It A Kewa
, paper, in the Dumps.
RoMB.'GaL;.(uly 80. The Alliance men
re wild over the sub treasury plan. At
every meeting convert have been made,
and from the present outlook an Alliance
ticket in the fie d in 1893 would be elected
without trouble in Georgia. Satnrday the
flrreai combination that has been starring
the state, setting it on fire from the pine
flats of the wire grass ' regions to the
mountains in the north, broke ranks and
drifted apart. General Weaver left for
his home in Iowa, Colonel Livingston re
turned to Atlanta. Jerry Simpson left
tor Birmingham yesterday.
A Journalistic Jeremiad.
The Democratic papers in this sectio
are jumping on the Alliance with both
feet; Trie Tribune of this city says: "Has
the glory departed from Georgia, "and are
there none of her sons brave enough, and
capable enongh, and trusted enough to
lead their brothers into ways of pleasant
ness and peace? Has it come to this, that
the name of Georgian is but another for
poltroon, demagogue, traitor and coward?
Has it come to this, that Georgians must
be taught their duty as citizens by a crazy
quilt politician from Iowa and an accident
"Then God help us! Then let the angel
of oblivion kindly cover the names ol
Crawford, of Stephens, of Tombs, of Hill,
of Jennings, of Johnson, of Gordon, of
Grady, and obliterate forever the story of
their lives and their works."
A MOTHER KILLS HER BABE

Suspicion finally centered on Mrs. Cre

down, and confessed. The woman, who

had planned to elope with a prominent

trouble ber and deliberately beat its brains
out, throwing it on the floor, and contriv

ment and she may be lynched.

FUTILE PltO PESTS.
St. Paul Citizens Object to a
A PLAIN VIOLATION OF TEE LAW
And an Event That the Clergy and Others
Denounce But It Will Go Right on
Regardless Bishop Gilbert's Protest
and the Club's Reply Thereto Mayor
Smith D lines to Interfere and Gives
the Objectors Cold Sympathy.
ST. Pacx, July 20. The ministers of St.
Paul are up in arms in opposition to the
Fitzsimmom Hall flgbt Wednesday even
ing. In almost every pulpit yesterday the
fight was more or less forcibly denounced.
Archbisop Ireland, at the cathedral, gave
the Minnesota Athletic club a terrible
scoring. Fqually outspoken was Dr.
Christie, of the House of Hope, who de
nounced the newspapers for abetting the
club by publishing details respecting the
preparation ) for the fight. So indignant
are the min: sters that, by a concerted ef
fort on their part, a mass-meeting of citi
zens has betn called for this evening at
Market hall to protest against the fight.
Ex-President" Xoyes, of the chamber of
commerce, -raited upon Mayor Smith re
questing hi-n to stop the fight.
The Mayor Pointedly Refused.
Mavor Smith pointedly refused to do
anything of the kind, stating that the
fight betwen Fitzsimmous and Hall was
in the irae line as the fistic
exhibitions which have been given
in the gymnasium of the Y. M. C. A. and
the Olymr ic theatre. Blood had been
drawn at majority of these sparring
matches. Mayor Smith subsequently
said: "Wly, if you should let these min
isters and tome of these religious people
have their way about affairs, we might
just as wei: fence up the city, for it would
be so dead t hat no one would find it worth
while to live here, even the people who
were to blame for it all. Do you know,
they are ever sending me protests against
the jockey club races, and many are urg
ing me to i.se my official and personal in
fluence to put a stop to the races."
A Bishop's Vain Protest.
Bishop Gilbert, of the Episcopal chnrch,
sent a card to the press protesting against
the fight in which he said, first that tho
club was bringing dishonor on the nan e
of St. Pan:; that they were throwing over
a brutal pprt the mantle of respectabil
ity; that tl ey were preparing to do in this
city that which even Louiiaua would not
permit w thin her borders; that they
were drawing together here the gamblers
and thugs of the northwest, and being
themselves-thrown into close association
with those men, and that he cannot under
stand how a man who makes any claim to
standing en respectability can counte
nance this affair by his presence.
Tl e Club Excuses Itself.
The club has published a reply in which
it says: "Ui. hop Gillert is obviously mis
informed as to the character of the coming
event. It;snot to be, as he seems to sup
pose, 'a pr ze fight' in the ordinary sens-e
of the teim that is, an affair of bare
knuckles, blood, brutality and disorder
but a contest in which padded gloves are
to be worn, and physical injury and suf
fering are reduced to a minimum. Xeither
of the contestants will suffer as much
pain or it convenience as a barefoot boy
suffers when he stubs his toe. The bishop
will acknowledge that broad distinctions
may be placed out of sight by a general
term. For example, the English clergy
man of tl e bishop's own faith does not
call it 'gambling' when he makes one at
the whist table with a shilling a corner
dependent on the rubber or the odd point,
nor does the English clergyman call it
sporting' when he umpires" a game of
cricket S inday afternoon between two
The Governor Appealed to.
Governor Merriam has also been ap
proached by opponents of the mill, but
got ont of the fix by turning them over to
Mayor Sraif'. Despite all the opposi
tion that is being raised tbe fight will take
place. H.iving in view the determined ac
tion of citizens to stop the prize fight, it
may be interesting to note the law of this
state relai ing to prize fighting and spar
ring. It, in brief, forbids anything in the
shape of a prize fight in the most explicit
terms, so that this match is plainly a vio
lation of the statute made and provided.
Every ont involved in any way, either as
principal, second or manager, is liable to
ninety days' imprisonment.
