Chicago, July 25. Senator Spooner, of
Winconsin, waat the Grand Pacific yes
terday. The Wisconsin senator stood
nearer to the, president perhaps than any
othar senator. Tbey have been life-lonR
friends, and the "lit'tle giant" did much
toward inflneiuinsc votes down in the
president's own state in 1888. When Mr.
Spooner was asked about the president's
chances for renominatiou he said a col
umn of good thing for Mr. Harrison.
"Harrison will be nominated," Le re
marked, adding that he submitted the
statement simply as an individual predic
tion. As to Secretary Blaine.
"What of Blaine?" was asked.
"He is very popular, and would make a
good secretary for the next four years."
"Will not his name 1 brought before
the convention f"
"Yon can't tell about that. The state
ment that the president and Mr. Blaine
are trying to race one another for the
nomination is untrue. I don't believe

"Think you had better ask the presi

"How has the secretary conducted his de
partment" "Admirably. There has been no jingo
ism in his work. It has been thorough,
able, sincere, and highly successful. 11b
was never more popular than at the pres
ent day, and 1 think he will succeed him
self as secretary of .tate."
"Mr. Clarkson's name has been suggest
ed as vice president?"
"He lives too near Indiana. It is not. cus
tomary to choose both candidates from
neighboring states. If the president is
taken from Indiana the vice president
will corrie from the east.

HE WOULDN'T TALK POLITICS.
Itot Someluiw Tils Tongue Got Away
with His 11 ill.
New York, July 2. Representative
Mills, of Texas, was corralled by a re
porter yesterday at Asbury Park. The
representative began by an emphatic re
fusal to talk politics, and this is how he
kept faith with himself: "To-morrow I
go to New York, but. only on private busi
ness. In a very few days I shall start for
Iowa. I'm going to inaugurate an active
campaign in that state. I want to see if I
cannot uncork some of that bottled Demo
cratic enthusiasm. The state is just now
experiencing political dry rot, and they
need a little nurturing to keep Repub
lican weeds from growing all about them.
After leaving Iowa I shall spend a few
days speech-making in Missouri and may
then run down to investigate things in
1 What Is 1'olitic. Anyway?
' "What as to your personal plans?"
"Well, I am after the speakership. The
position is an honorable one which does
not belittle any man to seek. I rely on a
sufficient number of my party friends
backing me for the office, and I would not
exchange places with any one."
"Who is your choice for the presidential
, "Well you understand that my present
position in politics would make it decid
edly indiscreet for me to venture any
opinion on the matter. Of coursie I have
preferences, but then you can appreciate
my reticence. You are branching into
politics and I call a halt."
MAN LEY'S LETTER TO GAVITT.
Alleged Foundation for the Maine Man's
Washington, July 25. The publication
of J. H. Manley's letter to Colonel Gavin,
in which he says he believes Blaine would
not reject the nomination, causes a good
deal of stir among politicians here. It is
understood that Manley and others of
Blaine's close friends visited Blaine here
about three months ago and told him they
wanted to know whether he would per
mit his friends to make him the candidate
of the party in He replied that in
view of his position he could not be a can
didate for the nomination.
Blaine Thought It Over.
Tbey answered that they fully appreci
ated that fact, but merely wanted to know
whether Ibere would be any more letters
sf declination should he be nominated. He
was silent for a few minutes, and finally
replied that if his friends chose to nomi
nate him, he could not prevent their doing
so. This was construed as an indirect as
turance that while he could not work for
a nomination he should not regret to have
his friends nominate him and he would
not decline. This is believed , to be the
foundation for Manley's expression of the
belief that Blaine would not decline if
nominated, and also the foundation for
the activitj among Blaine's friends since
that time. '

Gnats Found To lie Saving the Forests ot
Morgaxtows, W. Va., July 25. The
West Virginia agricultural station at this
place has just issued a bulletin report on
the black spruce forests of the state, which
cover fOO square miles of territory. It
deals especially with the terrible destruc
tion inflicted by insects, by which many
thousands of acres of what was once vn.a
able and handsome timber, particulaly
along the sides of Cheat mountain, is now
a dry, dreary and withered waste. The in
sects have been found to be the destruc
tive scolytidfp bark and timber beetles,
which are known to have committed such
extensive ravages in the French, German
and Canadian forests. Their work hn5
been going on for three years past.

But of late entomologists who are
studying this question have leen sup
prised to find that the trees seem to be re
covering. This led to a search fnr the
caue. It was found that myriads of
f-mall gnats were hovering over and about
the trees. Thev were also found in the
holes in the bark made by the insects. It
was seen thr.t they were preying on the
borers. . It is thought that this provision
of nature will delay, if not entirely stop,
the killing ofthe spruces. These gnats,
or parasites of the scolytidae. were cap
tured in crent numbers and efforts are be
ing made to propagate them. Professor
A. I). Hopkins, the entomologist, says

Men's Plea In Justification.
Kxoxville, Tenn., July 25. The war
is over and the miners have, uncondition
ally surrendered. Governor Buchanan
hf s won a victory and without bloodshed.
This satisfactory result was reached last
evening a little before 6 o'clock. When
df y came yesterday it was very generally
b lieved that the troops would move to
Coal Creels early in the day, but the day
w ire along and no troops moved. Up to
noon citizens believed they would go, and
even at noon many persons were heard on
the streets saying that the troops would
gr in the afternoon, but they did not go.
It soon became known, however, that the
trjops would not be ordered to move,
though they were ready to go at a mo
mint's notice. When they did not go
citizens became nervous, and matters
seamed to be in a very bad condition and
there were rumors upon rumors that the
governor would surrender to the mob.
Concluded the Governor Was Right.
It was learned that the sheriff of An
derson county would not act and ask for
a Ksse, and it was said that the governor
wjis powerless. When the committee of
m ners left him Thursday night the men
wre angry. Several of the committee
sa d that they would have nothing more
to do with the governor, but they were
ac t-headed men, for yesterday the cora
ni ttee came to see the position of the gov
ernor, and knew he could not, as governor
of a great state and sworn to do his duty,
compromise the law. So they agreed
among themselves that the governor wa3
riht in not acceding to a violation of the
la'v. They got together about 3 o'clock
and were in session some time. When
th-'V broke up they went to Governor iiu-
cli man with the proposition to abide by
The Proposition of the Miner.
The following is a copy of the agree
nunt which the miners cams to and
which is ci nsidered a settlement ofthe
ni-ue trouble: "We. the undersigned
co:nmirtee, acting in behalf of the miners
ani their friends of Bricvville and Coal
Cri-tk, and in the interest of peace and
harmony', do submit the following, trust
iut it will meet with your favorable con
sideration. First, status quo to be le
st( red and the guards and convicts not Jo

ference with them.
Will Try to Be Law Abiding.
'Second Reposing confidence in our
governor, and lielieving the general as
sembly, when it meets in extra session,
wi.l give us the necessary relief from the
oppression that now hangs over us, we
will endeavor to conduct ourselves as law
abttling people, so as to maintain the con
fidence and sympathy of the public in the
f u- ure,' as weil as in the past.
Thanks to Governor and Citizens.
"Third And we do hereby express our
thanks to Governor Bnchanan for the
kind consideration in holding the militia
in this city and thereby preventing a con
flirt that might have resulted in blood-sh-'d.
"Fourth And to the committee of citi
zens we also express thanks for the inter
est they have shown by their counsel and
advice in their efforts to adjust the exist
ing difficulties. " The above is signed by
thu miners' and citizens' committees.
The Governor to Visit Coal Creek.
Today the governor will go to Coal
Creek and talk to the rrtiners. The tele
gr.im received from that place late last
niht said that everybody there was re
joicing at the result, that the governor
will be cordially welcomed and that the
miners will faithfully keep the agreement
as approved by their committee. The
lalor people of the state are to le con
gratulated on the result. It has again
put the miners in a good light and they
now have the sympathy of all here. It is
to be sincerely hoped that much good for
them will result.
AS VIEWED BY THE MINERS.
The Recent Aetion Justified by an Ob
server at the Front.
One who has been watching the course
of events says: "Xo one knows better
thi n these miners that they have violated
the law, but they also know that they
have the sympathy of the entire state and
of adjoining states, and financial assist
ant if needed. While knowing they
ha -e violated the law the miners feel that
thy were sanctioned in their action by
public opinion. They loot at it in this
ligbt: There are many laws printed in
the statute books of this state that are
Beer observed because they are unjust,
and there are unwritten laws which are
observed because they are just and they
Laws Not Impartially Enforced.
"Among these is that opposing the con
vict lease system, one they are now put
ting into execution with a vengeance, and
a 1 w which is on the statute books, pro
viding each mine with a check weighman,
and this law is not enforced; hence the
men have no protection against mine own
ers who have a desire to rob them, and
thty are not a few. The non-enforcement
of i his law is the original cause of all the
trouble, and it should be made a felony
for every violation."
Rejolriuir Over the Result.
When it was known in the city that the
trouble had been settled there was great
joining .Everybody was happy, and the
strsets were filled with smiling faces.
Soon after dark the soldiers were released
from their camp and went to work cele
brating the return of peace.
