mot profound deliberation that it was de
cided that the Catholic Church in the United

lar evening services were held at the cathed
ral this evening. Right Hev. Wei. H. Gross,

HATTON TcTmEDI LL.
A Letter in Which the Postmaster
Washington, Nov. 2). Postmaster-General
Hatton to-day addressed a letter to
Joseph Madill, editor of the Chicago Tribune,
replying to a statement originating with
Clarkson, of the Republican National Com
mittee, recently published in the Tribune, in
which Clarkson after giving many reasons
why Blaine was defeated, said: ''The order
of Postmaster-General Hatton requiring
the New York postoffice, with its thousands
of clerks and carriers be kept open, pre
vented enough Republicans from voting to
havo overcome what is now claimed as a
Cleveland plurality." In his letter Hatton
says no kucIi order as that referred to by
Clarkson was issued by him: that he was in
Burlington, Iowa, at the time; that in reply
to a telegram on the subject he informed
Elkins that there was no law making election-day
a holiday, but that the postmaster
of New York, if he desired, could certainly
manage to allow the employes in his office to
vote without seriously interfering with the
delivery of the mails, and that General Ha
zen, who was acting postmaster at the time,
telegraphed Postmaster- Pearson that the
employes should have full opportunity to ex
ercise tho right of suffrage.
The Court of Queen's Bench.
London, Nov. 21. The suit of Adams
against Coleridge was commenced to-day in
the Court of Queen's Bench. The plaintiff
claims $jO,000 damages for accusations af
fecting his moral character made by the de
fendant in a letter to his sister, Miss Mildred
Mary Coleridge, to whom the plaintiff was
until recently engaged to be married. Several
domestic scandals will, it is said, be un
earthed during the progress of the trial. A
number of prominent men and women of
high rank have been subpenaed as witnesses
to prove the charges made by Mr. Coleridge,
and it is expected that his father, Lord-Chief
Justice Coleridge, and his sister will also go
on the witness stand.
At a late hour this afternoon the case was
adjourned, no decision having been reached.

A JERSEY SENSATION.
TWO DEMOCRATS AT VARIANCE.
Rich Developments of a Suit Brought
by One Against tho Other
An Afflicted Reporter.
Nkwakk,N.J.,Nov. 21. Matthew C. Eaton,
who claimed tub A nephew of ex-Senator
Eaton, of Connecticut, cau.-ed a henation
here to-day by bringing iit against Wm.
Shurts for a part of the exienes of a trip to
Chicago to attend the National Democratic
Convention. Both are prominent society
men and members of the Je ffersonian Club,
a iolitical organization composed of leading
Democrats of the city, At the trial Shurts
claimed that Eaton hired the Associated
Press reporter to go with him and puff him
in the press. Eaton also induced Shurts to
pass as his private secretary' in order to im
press ex-Senator Eaton of his importance.
When the party reached Chicago ex-Senator
Eaton gave his alleged nephew letters to
prominent men, to deliver in the case that
Cleveland could not be nominated. They
were to "boom" the ex-Senator. Mr. Shurts
declared the ex-Senator always addresed M.
C. Eaton as Mr. Eaton. He also eays
M. C. Eaton tried to pass as an
inlluential politician, and that it cost him
several thousand dollars to do it After the
Chicago convention Eaton proposed a trip
to the Yellowstone Park in Dakota. As a
matter of convenience Eaton suggested to
tho Associated Press reporter that passes
might be secured. The reporter got passes,
and the party went to Yellowstone Park.
On the return Eaton told the reporter to
stay in Chicago, and he would send him
money to return. This he forgot to do. By
a strange circumstance the reporter
happened ' to be in Newark to
day, and Eaton had him arrested
for obtaining money under false pretenses.
The reiorter expostulated but he was held in
bail. The trial will be resumed on Wednes
day next. Eaton is looked upon as an ecce n
tric individual, is about, thirty years of age
and is posseessed of considerable meaus.
Ills main object iu life seems to be to pose
as an influential politician. He calls the
president-elect "Grove," and Hendricks
'Tom." Mr. Shurts is a highly respected
citizen and senior member of tho firm of
VanAlstyne fc Shurts. The newspaper man
seem to be the most unfortunate one of the
lot. His name is Orange Stevens. He is
well known in New York journalistic circles.
An Attempt to Kill an Important Wit
ness Against Illegal Voters.
Chicaoo, Nov. 21. The existence of a con
spiracy to kill Orange D. Douglass, a de
tective and deputy United States Marshal,
who is the principal witness against William
J. Clinger, John II. Stearns and Frank A.
Owen, charged with tho illegal registration
of voters, is claimed by United States Attor
ney Tuthill. Douglass was waylaid while
crossing a vacant lot on Center avenue after
dark last night by two masked men and cru
elly beaten. The assault was so snddeu and
the night so dark Douglass caught but a
very imperfect glimpse of the men. After
knocking him down, they beat him terribly
over the head and left him dead. Douglass
remained in the position he was felled until
7 o'clock this morning, when he was discov
ered by passers by. Tuthill is satisfied that
the assault is connected with the case against
the above-named parties, and says this is
the second attempt to murder Douglass, he
having been twice tired at within a week
near the same point. Douglass will recover.
A RECEPTION TO GREELY.
The New York Geographical Society

dent of the New York Geographical Society;

an active part in Arctic exploring expedi
tions, including several of the Greely party.
Lieut. Greely spoke at length recounting
his experiences in the Arctic region. He
paid a high tribute to tho bravery and fidel
ity of his comrades.
A Business Melody.
There was a man in our town, and he was
wondrous wise, for when ho marked his
prices down he then did advertise.
And when ho saw his trade increase, with
all his might and main he marked still lower
every price, and advertised again.
And when he adverti.-ed again, his, rivals
stamped and tore, to see folks rush with
might and main to patronize his store.
And while they sat in solitude and saw him
custom win, that man behind the counter
stood and raked the s)ieekel in.
And when he raked the sheckel in, and
saw Ids fortune rising, he took a goodly lot
of tin and kept on advertising.
Each day a generous sum he'd sink and
demonstrate full plain tho more one pays for
printer's ink the greater is his gain. A.

FROM FOREIGN LANDS.
THE ENGLISH DEBT FROM MEXICO
Nightly Kiots Over the Debates in the
Chamber The West African
Conference Other Affairs.
Mexico, Nov. 21. The tiibcus.ivju of the
bill converting the English debt hiid cllow
ing a large commission to the managers of
the funding operation, baa caused f uch in
dignation among the people that riots have
been of nightly occurrence.. The drbhtes in
the chamber have lren very exciting.
The Federal troops are in
constant readiness to suppress
disgorders, and this adds to the xopular an
ger. The attitude of Diaz, who i ioou to be
sworn in as President, is eagerly diseased.
A crowd surrounded hi house la&t night and
made sp-eeches urging him to disapprove the
bilb It was afterward learned that he was
not at home. The house yesterday after
noon postponed the bill until after Diaz'
installation, which action was bailed
with tremedous applause by the
crowd in the gallery. Mear
wliile a riot was 111 progress outside the
chamber. The troops charged ujon the ih-o-ple
with swords, striking only with the fiat
sides. A son of President Gonzalez com
manded the cavalry. The contest lastod only
ten minutes, when Gonzales' life fmed in
danger. The guards rnaised and charged
the crowd, dispersing the rioters. It is ex
pected the people will quiet down now.
They seem to have confidence in Diaz.
How the Wives of !partment OOclals
Stand in tho Way of Female Employe.
'It would never do tor women to control
politics. It would be ou'.rageous," ex
claimed an infuriated lady, In conversa

Why, have you been crossed iu your
"No, 1 have not been crossed," replied
the lady, 'but heaven preserve some
others," and she upturned her pretty eyes
in reverence. "But that I am forbid to
tell the secrets of my prison house, I could
a tale unfold whose slightest word, etc.
It is enough for me to say that the hea U
of soni'i of the Government institutions
are tontrolled so completely by their
wives that the latter are indeed the Super
intendents. I have in my mind tho wife of
a man who is at the head of an institu
tion, who is so powerful with the influence
over her husband that he can do nothing
scarcely without consulting her. She is
almost, daily beside him at his desk.
She goes through the place, looks
around the employen, makes in
quiries and knows about as much as
the husband of what Is goinj on. She
keeps the people there on nettles. There
is no lady about the instituiion that feels
secure in her position after the wifejmakes
her tour of inspection. They all fear that
some jealous fancy will lead to dismissal.
What poor woman is there who may not t
wrongfully suspec ed? If the husband

Running Up Stream.
iGs.cna (IIL) Gaictte.
The novel sigtu of the Mississippi flow
ing up stream was witnossed at North
Pepin recently, when the Chippewa
poured such volumes of water into the
lewer end of tho lake tiiat it could not es
cape down stream. A number of illutra
tiva Incidents are noted by the Pepin ,Sf if.
A mall carrier and his companion found it
beyond their power to row a skiff down
the Mississippi to a point opposite the
mouth of the Chippewa. So great wai the
violence with which th roaring torrent
poured out of the latter river agaimt the
Minnesota bluffs above Keis landing
that the water reooilel, bubbling, d ly
ing and divi iing, and even ataying the
current of the great MUsUsippl, which
runs at a velocity of three mdes j-rbourf
and turning it back up stream at the tame
rate- Logs drift-wood and all manner of
debris floated up the Mbsis'ip;! River
into Lake Ppin and to th snores at ihe
village of lVplu, and en atnve the ted,
muddy waters of th CUppwa coubl
be en even to lak City. The sUamer
Pobert Ddd was unable to tow a raft
ot of th mouth of the lakes. Th ateamf r
Pepin encounrel a tout resistance on
Friday to pet by the m?uth of the Chip
p, in psMing t an 1 from Ite l's. An
other steamer, with a raft in t?w, was
