that in this way only cm the party '"o

The Lyuohburg convention next week,
called by Col. Lamb, promises to he

all sections of the State to checkmate the

lnrLte proport'ons to be headed off. It is
claimed, indeed, that the Lyuehburg con

The Lynchburg convention will not

The Republicans promoting this move?

Han nil's letter.to Mr. Agnew|was written
under a misapprehension. They think
he was mislead, otherwise he would not
have approved tho policy of surrendering
to the enemy. They havo no doubt that,
once he familiarizes himself with the sit?

of the action of the Lynchburu conven?

committee render such assistance to the
Virginia Republican campaign as may
be within his power.

Secretary Doyle Investigating Rich?
mond Collector's Action.
Richmond, Va., Sept. 20.?Secretary
John T. Doyle, of the civil service, com?
mission, who is here inquiring into
things generally which pertain to the
branches of the service, has made special
investigation of Collector James D. Bra
dy?s action in discharging all the Demo?
cratic deputies and appointing new ones
not takeu from the eligible list, and from
his expressions to night there is no doubt
that he thinks the civil service rules
have beeu violated.
In an interview to-night Mr. Doyle said
the contention that deputies go out of
office with the collector seemed to have!
been raised for political ex'gency. The
deputies, he declared, were v.nquestlon- I
ably under the protection of the rule i
which places them within tlio classified
Mr. Doyle does not attach any weight
to Col. Brady's claim that denutles are
bonded to the collector rather than to
the government. He said the question
of bonds was not a material one. Men
in both the revenue and postodico de?
partments had. hebl positions under many
admlnlstratlon?. The secretary said tnis
was a question tbeSecertary of the Tteas
ury would have to decide, and he did not
believe Mr.Gage had written officially
indorsing Col. Brauy's views of the le?
gal phase of the question.
He was careful not to commit himself
as to what the probable outcome cf the
case might be, but he did not scruple to
say that the removal of the deputies Ut -
der the circumstances was a violation of
civil service rules. Mr. Doyle will have
a permanent examining board appointed
here to take in all branches of the service

Warsaw, Sept. SO.?Though an official
denial will he forthcoming, it lias leaked
out from official circles in such a manner
as leaves no room lor doubt that there
was a deliberate and determined plot
against Emperor Nicholas at the time of
his recent visit to this city. Its success
was only frustrated by an accident.
Several weeks before tho arrival of the
imperial party a number of peisons, sup?
posed to belong to the German socialist
party, undermined Norvy Svlat, the prin?
cipal street in Warsaw, between the gov?
ernor-general's nalace and the royal cas?
As the tunnel, which had been under?
taken from the cellar of a beer house, ap?
proached completion, the conspirators
became: apprehensive of a collapse of the
j roadway and called In several Polish ma?
sons to build surpports. The masons,
whose suspicions were aroused, notified
the police and 130 arrests followed.
Among those in custody are four dis?
guised German officers, either on leave of
absence or belonittng to the Landwehr,
who had beon active in the actual work
jf tunneling. A number of merchants
and manufacturers from the town of
Lody, Poland, are also Implicated.
Tile Alleged attempt on the lite of the

tion by the nihilists of Emperor Alexan?
der II in the streets of St Petersburg on
March 1!>, 1881, after many desperate
attempts. The c/.ar had inspected the
marine corps and was returning in his
carriage, when a bomb was thrown,
wounding two Cossacks rhling along be?
hind the carriage. The czar stepped
down from the carriage when a second
bomb was thrown. It exploded at his

hours later in the Winter Palace.

day, Assistant Engineer Knight, of

positive proof of cannibalism was foun?'
at Lieut. Greeley'.s cam]* at Camp Sabine
by a landing party. Mr. Knight says
that when Cam k? Sabine was reached only
the scientists of the party and one or two
attendants to do the ro.igh work were
landed. Before going ashore each of tbo
party was told to expect to find some
disagreeable things, but to be prepared
to keep silent forever, if necessary, as to
what they found.
All agreeing, tie party was landed and
the search began. When the expedition
returned on board it tore a lot of enst
oft clothins,. empty provision cats, sur?
gical instruments, etc.. and a bit of board
bearing the name of Will Norman, the
pilot of the party, who died ui Brooklyn
a few years ago. These things were
placed in the engineroom of the Hope to
dry, while Mr. Peary took some other
things to Ids cabin.
The most important Und, however, was
not brought on board. It consisted of
the fro/.eu remains of a human right
thigh that was found in the snow outside
the camp proper, near that place used as
a burial ground by the Greeley party.
