Interesting Gwaip,
This morning, in the corridor of the
Metropolitan Hotel, a Cnmc reporter
met with Mr. M. J. Jackson, a promi
nent and influential colored Republican
ot Madison Court-IIouso, Va. When
Interrogated as to the condition of poll,
tics In the Old Dominion, he said that
it was not altogether satisfactory to col
ored Republicans.
"One colored Republican, Professor
Lancston," he said, "by pluck and
ability has compelled recognition by the
Mahonc element of the party, but the
prcat mass ot colored mon who labored
night and day, at tholr own expense of
noney and time, have bcon Ignored by
the party for which they have worked. '

In New Yotk, Mr. Panwwi mM, the
Democrat were working in harmony
and the iny Was never better organ
lil. After dlcsiBg Stale politics
the conversation turned to national
issnw, and as a matter of course Mr.
Cleveland and Mr. HUl were referral
to. Mr. Parsons' relations lo Governor
Hill and ex President Cleveland are
$enrlly known, and when the reporter
asked him to say something about the
two Democratic leaders be lregged to be
excused, saying It wa too earlr to
drtewm Presidential candidates.
'Well, is it true that Governor Hill Is
going to 'swing 'round the circle' to
lielp his boom'" asked the reporter
"No, it is not. I regard D.tvld Iten
nett Hill as a statesman of the first
rank; a man who stands by his Mends,
honest ami straightforward in every
sense of the worth He bos the courage
of his convictions and is in harmony
with his party on all the leading ques
tions of the hour. In my opinion, there
Is no truth In the story that he Is going
to 'swing 'round the circle' for the pur
pose of creatine a boom. He is not
that kind of stafesmsn. Governor Hill
baa been abused by everybody In the
West and Northwest simply because
they had an Idea that ho beat Mr.
Cleveland. If it bad not been for Hill's
enrnest support In the last election,
and If he hail not made speeches in In
diana and worked as hard as he did,
Mr. Cleveland would have run behind
the ticket 60.000 more votes than
he did. If Mr. Cleveland Is renomi
nated, I will support him to the best of
my ability; In fact, It mailers not who
the Democratic candidate Is. I shall
support him.
"Of course, my preference Is for
Hill. I know Governor Hill. I know
his sterling nualttlcs. I know he U a
Democrat In all the word Implies. And
what Is more he can carry Now York,
and that moans a victory for the Demo
cratic party. I think David Bennett
Hill n representative man who stands
squarely and firmly on the Democratic
platform adopted hy the last National
Convention. He Is n true representa
tive ot the people, and the Democrats
of New York are for Hill, but they
will work as hard for any other Dem
ocrat who may receive the nomination.
It Is not true that Governor Hill Is
Jealous of Mr. Cleveland. I know that
Hill would not place a straw In the way
of Mr. Cleveland, nor would he step
out nf the way to say anything against
the cx-Presldont, but If Mr. Cleveland
is nominated, II III will support him
with all his might."
Speaking of the abuse heaped upon
Governor Hill. Mr. Parsons said: "llill
Is one of the most abused men In the
Democratic party. He Is called the
'Rum Governor' by the Republicans
and Mugwumps. The truth U Gover
nor Hill never took a drink of liquor In
his life, neither does he smoke. I've
been In the West for the past five
months practicing my profession. I
find that sentiment has changed toward
Hill, and In Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri,
Illinois, Michigan ami nearly all the
Western States the people are beginning
to have their oyes opened and sea
through the base charges printed
against him in the Republican press.
And every day the Governor's friends
and admirers are increasing hi number.
You remember the same clique of Re
publicans in New York also abused
Tllden, but that did not lessen the
popularity nor strength of the late ex
Preeideut with the Democratic party.
"The Republicans in the Vi est are
kicking like bronchos against the Mc
KInley tariff bill, ami that measure will
be repudiated at the polls. The sliver
question will also tell against the Ad
ministration, ami nothing the Republi
cans can do will avert the coming
In Mr. Parson's opinion Lieutenant
Governor Joaee, "the man who pays the
freight," stood the beat chance of being
the next Governor of New York, and
that Sheehan of lluffalo will be the next
United States Senator.

"It Is an open secret that nearly all

they refine to sustain Intolerable mo

Hie worklngmen, and they are dumb as
oyster. They would tell the truth if
they bad the courage to tell It; they
would, with one voice, ask for free raw
materials and cheapened products: but
they fear to do It, and that Is the end
"These cowardly manufacturers seem
to be oblivious of the fact that they are
doing more to aid the destructive policy
of free trade than all the open free
traders of tho land. They are making
protection odious to the Tfttmer. to the
worklngmen and to all classes of con

monstrous greed, and they arc certain

"If the policy of protection Is that
proposed by the McKinley bill, an over
whelming mnjorlty of the people, bolh
North and South, are nsalnst It, and If
they are driven Inlo rovolt against It,
there Is the gravest danger that honest
protection will be overthrown. The
countrv would gladly protect labor, but
It won't protect monopoly. The people
won't protect classes at the cost of the
masses, and that seals the doom of any
tnrllT law'llkc the McKinley measure.
"The only safety for true protection
Is In such men ns arc members of tho
Manufacturers' Club telling the truth
boldly and demanding n general re
duction of taxes on the ticcessarlos of
life, with free raw materials and pro
tection for the wages or lalmr. If they
had the courage to sneak us they be
lieve, they would establish a Just and
permanont protective iwllcy; but their
cowardice In suppressing the truth and
their support of protection only to
monopoly, arc the greatest present aids
to free trade."
Nkw Yohk, June S3. The lime'
Washington correspondent says: "The
calculations made by the Senate finance
Committee, with the aid of a Treasury
cxpeit, to find out the probable effect of
tlic Senate Tariff bill, as compared with
that of the House, Indicate that the Sen
ate has not deemed It expedient to go
too far in reducing revenue, and that
there Is a fear that all the revenue that
can be raited Is likely to lie needed be
fore the Republican party has gone
much further In Its reckless career.
"Tho Imports of 1880 were $8v0,l!)?.
117. ami the duties collected were
$101,40S,$1G. It was calculated that
the duties to be collected under the
operation of the House bill would
amount to fSOO.ttl 1,07. while the cal
culation for the Senate bill is $901,00,
007. Tho difference In the average rate
ot the House and the Senate bills Is
small. The average rate of the House
bill Is SS W), while that of the Senate
bill Is 91 07, or a difference ot 83 100.
The House free list carried away duties
amounting to $0.73,b78. and the Sen
ate free list represents $40,000,813.
"The Senate has spoiled Mr. McKin
ley 's calculations by removing all the
Internal reveuue legislation. That adds
to the revenues that were threatened the
very considerable sum of $10,027,878.
Perhaps none of the calculations will
be of much worth. Senator Teller aud
Senator Stewart are both quoted as
having said that there shall be no Tariff
bill in the Senate until there has bees
a fair ami square vote on free coinage.
Mr. Teller is in earnest, for he will sooa
be a candidate for re-election.

has abandoned all Idea of passing the
bill discussed in the caucus of Republi
can Senators, for the reason that the
Senators did sot appear to think that
the situat'oa demanded so strenuous a
measure as that offered by Hoar and
patched up by Chandler. A bill from
the House, passed by oae of Mr. Reed's
counted majorities, would not be pop
ular with the nfteea Senators who voted
for fiee coinage, and who have been
watching the Speaker for three days

Kaw Yomk, June SIR. The IkntUT
Pittsburg ctitretpondenl telegraphs his
paper concerning the political situation
In Pennsylvania:
It has been many n year since the
Republicans of Pennsylvania have been
In doubt a week before their State con
vcutlon as lo who would be the nomi
nee for Governor. If Quay should at
limpt to force the nomination of Sena,
tor George Wallace Delamater, who has
been niatqueradlng ns the Quay cham
pion, the convention might show a ma
jority which would carry out the wishes
of the Reaver leaders. It would at the
same time, however, develop a minority
which would be more potent than tho
majority so far as tho occupancy of the
Executive Mansion goes.
There arc dozens of men In the dele
gations from tho western nnd central
counties nnd from Philadelphia and
PllUburg, who would promptly give
notice that they would not support the
candidate If his name should be Dela
mater. Quay feels that to shelve him
looks like a defeat. On the other
hand, the loss or the State ticket Is
something far more serious than a mere
sentimental mishap, and you can de
pend upon It that this Is Quay's view
Just now. This is about
tbicc days before the convention, each
candidate btlng given the delegates he
can probably depend upon for his first
ballot: General I). H. Hastings, 70:
George W. Delamater, 07; Major K. A.
Montooth. SW; Charles W. Stone, 10:
General K. N. Osborne. 0: Lieutenant
Governor William T. Davles. 8; Con
grestman II. C. McCormaok, it. Total,
(M. Necessary to nominate, 103.
It Is probable that this attempt would
have been successful hail It not been
for the stand takeu by the ChrvnicU
TtUgraph, a Republican paper of this
city. List March It began a systematic
exposure of the corrupt ami astonish
ing method employed by Delamater
and Andrews to capture delegates.
Never In tbo recent history of political
campalcns have there Iwen lioider as
sertions, more serious charges and more
general corruption urged against a can
didate than have been laid at the door
of Senator Delamater ami Chairman
Andrews by the VhronieU TtUgraph,
It has been an open secret for months
that Delamater ia the candidate of the
Standard Oil Company, whose legisla
tive manipulator he bat been. One of
the chief officers of the Standard said
withlu a month: "We muat nominate
Delamater. and we will, without regard
to cost. We have spent too much al
ready to retreat now." It is said that
the Standard is desirous of passing Im
portant bills at the next session of the
Legislature, and it desires a Governor
who will do what he Is told hy them.
Montooth, Hastings and Moae have
led the held ami thrown their strength
to each other ia the counties where one
of them was In the lead. .Since the
2HU ot May there have been eighty
eight delegates elected, aad Delamater
got only two In Dauphin (Ilarrlsburg)
and five ia Philadelphia, and those were
obtained under compromises entered
into before the real weakness of the
Senator from Crawford became ap
parent. Aa avalanche of protests from
men of all degrees aad repreeating
the moat varied interests has poured
upoa Senator Quay as to forctaz the
nomination of Dtlawater. He has ueea
told by his own most trusted aad level
headed assiataJtU that be would
aad the Legislature with Delamater as
a raadtdate. This meant the defeat of
CetueioB for the United States Seaate
and the ruin of Quay as a national ad

Theie is ow every prolmWlltv that
ex-Governor PattisonwHI be nomfnaterl
by the DemocraU, ami this has been the
potent reaerr for the shelving of any
weak candidate. The ex Governor Is
from twentwto thirty thousand stronger
lhan any ofhtr man in his parly If there
Is cause for dlssatlsfacllon with the Re
publican nominee. In any event it will
take the btst timber at the disposal of
the Republicans to defeat Pattison. If
Paltlson Is senomlnated for Governor
ex-Senator Wallace will have Ids pres
ent rival's Mpport for the Senate In
spite of what is said about the ambition
of William I. Scott in that direction.
Of course, Senator Cameron will be
a candidate for le-clectlon, and he will
ptobably be wpported by Quay, but
there is trovble ahead for Cameron.
No less a personage than "Addition,
Division ami Silence" Hill Kimble Is
after Cameron's plumage. It Is known
to but few and has been a well kept
sectct up to this time that Kimble has
announced that he will give $100,000 to
defeat Cameron, and If that Is not
enough be will make it $900,000. He
also said that ho wanted it understood
that he himself had no candidate to
favor In Cameron's stead.
The convention of next Wednesday
will be a nolty one, for there will be
many clubs ami delegations favoring
the vntloiM candidates. There will lie
a red hot light for Lieutenant Governor
between J. A. M. Passmore of Phila
delphia, Senator Lewis A. Watrea ot
Lackawanna, and K. K. Martin of Lan
caster, with the chances in favor ot
Watrcs. Colonel Thomas A. Stewart
of Montgomery County will have a
walkover for Secretary of internal
Affairs, as he is the only candidate thus

Dm lug the early part of last evening
this city was visited br one ot the most
violent thunder-storm that has oc
culted In the memory of the oldest
inhabitant. For aa hour before the
rain began to fall the wind blew a tegu
lar hurrlcaue, ami for a time It was
thought that a cyclone would be the re
sult. About 0.30 o'clock there was a tre
mendous clap of thunder, ami shortly
afterwards it was reported that the Fair
fax Suuinary, an Kpiseopal theological
school, about two mile from Alex
andria, Vs., had been struck by light
ning ami burned to the ground. Inves
tigation developed the Information,
however, that the fire was not at the
school, but that the flames had con
sumed a number ot cottages la the
immediate vicinity occupied by colored
The greatest excitement prevailed at
the scene of the fire, but ao one perished
and no oae was hurt. The Fairfax
Seminary is the principal theological
school of the Kpiseopal Church in the
South, aad the property ami buildings
upoa it are of great value.
Late ia the evening there was con
siderable excitement caused by a report
that the steamer Mary Washington had
been blowu ashore with a load of pas
sengers duriag the hurricane preceding
the storm. She carried a colored ex
cursion down the river lo CoUiagswood
Beach aud was returning to the eity
when the hurricane struck her. She
was then near Fort Footo, about six
miles from Washington and about
a half mile from Alexandria.
When the hurricane came on the peo
ple oa the boat were nearly fraatle.
Some began to cry and others fell oa
their kaeee aad commenced to pray,
avowing that the ead of the world had
come aad that judgment was at haad.
The boat was carried to the Maryland
shore. A few of the passengers em
bar In d ia a life boat aad rowed to
Alexandria, but the remaining 3tMl were
toiurwIUd to remaia aboard uatil high
tide this morning.
The steamer arrived at her wharf at
o'clock this moralag, aot damaged in

Xaw York, June 3:. Tha Herald
te-tlay tmhllthes a long itltrmtch from
lie WaehlnKtoa correspomient concern
log Mr. Maine's reciprocity letter. It
contains the following interviews
"Mr. lkrrows of Michigan, one of
the members of the Wars ami Means
Committee, raid: My judgment is that
the House will not recede from Its posi
tion lu favor of free susar under any
circumstances. Least of all will itcon
sent to the tnoillficsllon made lir the
f tnate Cominlttec, hy which the divid
ing line Is lowered to 13, for that sim
ply elves free sugar to the refiners and
taxed sugar to the people, thus forcing
every pound of sugar consumed In the
United Slates through the refiners. I
don't think there Is" any force In the
suggestion made that we want to con
tinue the tax on sugar In order to hrlng
alout more favorable commercial
treaties with the South American coun
tries. "Mr. llavnc of Pennsylvania, a mem
ber of the ways and Means Committee,
said : The House and Senate committees
considered the sugar question carefully,
and the House ratified an action bv
passlna the bill ns we retiorted it with
the sugar chidule. I think it l very
unlikely that cither branch of Congress
will aatee to a chmge.
"Mr. Gear of Iowa, another member
of the committee, said- I think the peo
ple of Iowa preler five sugar to any sort
of nrlpiccity. ltcclproclty on sugar
with iiith American countries means
a lepetltlon of the Snndnich Island
treaty, which contributes 3,000,000 a
vinr tn a few Amciican planters who
haic located there without any cone
spending I emflt tooum-lte." aani
"Uovercar bear and other Western
Republicans, who made tha Aghl for
free sugar in the House, ate atieetl, it
is vald. that It the K-nnie bill cornea
over In the shape In which it now
stands cither the free line will be put
hack to in or there woa't be any tariff,
legislation by the present Congress.
This Is the view taken by Governor Gear,
who wat the leading free sugar advo
cate on the Ways and Mtans Commit
tee; Judge l'ayson. Mr. Cannon and
others. That the Republicans are not
united may be judged from this state
ment of a lead I air Republican Represen
tative, who has a good deal to do with
shaping party councils: The Seaate
Finance Committee must be proud of
IlKlf. It proposes to make sugar up
to 13 free for the benefit of the
refiner, then it puts on a duty between
13 aad 10, also for the benefit
of the refiner, aad raises the duly above
10. likewise for the benefit of the
refiner. Now, where does the con
sumer come in ? I know what I am
talking about when I aay ao such
proposition can ever pass the House,
We made the tight for free sugar ami
we kaow our atreugtb. If there is to
be a tariff bill this session it must con
tain a provision for free sugar up to
18, which will make the consumer
imiepemleut of the refiner. Klther
that or no tariff legislation.
Senator Cullom of Illinois said: My
Impression is that Mr. Blaine thinks the
polley of the party ought to be ia the
direction of a reduction rather than aa
increase in duties, and I believe further
that be U displeased because this has
aot been done, t have no doubt that
Mr. lilaine's proposition to trade out
sugar duties for soma substantial re
turns from the countries south of us
will be fully debated when the bill gets
before the Seaate, but what the result
will be I caaaot, of course, aay.
"Senator Washbura of Mlnaeaou.
who is largely iatereated in the Minne
apolis milling iatereet, said- I think it
uaioituaate taat Mr. Blalae a sugges
tion was not acted upoa when the Mc-KiaU-y
bill wat roaslaenad la that House
coaaasHtee. What we need is a wider
market for our good- We caa get it
by maklag reciprocal relations with the
other couaUks on this hemitphere- We
ougitt neve to have takea the duty 08
coOee uatil Brazil hail agreed to put
our agricultural Itupkaaeais ami bread
stuffs oa her free list. It is aot too
late fur us so to aatead the Tart bill
wata it comes up ta the ieaatc aa
to teuuire that Cuba ami the other
couatma from whom we import sugar
shall give ut a corresponding privilege
ia the way of a reciprocal acceptance
of our wheat, dour, ore ami otiter
agricultural product. The Houae oaly
bis passed upoa it. Two other brajwraea
of the Governau? nt have yet to consider
it. It would be evea better to coatiau
sugar ou the dutiable list a while
loagtr than aot acur tbi advantage.
Ofcoun our people would he disap

withal, aad tsuw would see. as sooa at
it we expiated to them, that it would
