A delegation from tho Farmers' Alli ance waited on the conference and in vited them to send delegates to the Farmers' Alliance Political Convention, which will be held in this city next week. This the Federation refused to do, taking the ground that tho organiza tion was not a political one, but the in dividual members were at liberty to do as they pleased, and the belief was ex pressed that many of them would attend.

PuiLADtariiiA, July 0 The Wash ington correspondent of the 2iWsays: "There is a rumor, and It is said to have originated from good authority, that the Republicans will consent to adjourn ami leave the Federal Election law go over until next session If the Democrats will agree to throw no ob stacles In the way of the Tariff bill and allow It to be passed. It is probable that If the Senate does resume discus sion on the tariff, on July 11. that it will last at least three weeks, and If the Federal bill U taked up. ou August 4, the debate on that tjuestton will prob ably extend to the end of September and then Congress will adjourn early lu October. "Rut the Congressmen are all anxloue to make some other arrangement. The House can clear Its table ami adjourn by the end of this month, and If It should not be possible to pass the elec tion bill in time to operate at the fall Congressional elections it Is not be lieved that the Senate will refuse to al low It to go over until next session."

C, comes a sentallonal story about the killing of an Englishman, who gave his name as Charles Gonhl, by a women who pasted as his wife. Roth are remembered here in Atlanta as bar ing recently been guests of the Atlanta Hotel, and while here attracted a great deal of attention. Gourd looked a typical Rrttlsiter and claimed to have lwen a wealthy planter at Ceylon, and failed out there. Rut he had, he said, wealthy Knglish con nections, and his checks at the llnnk of England were at all times honored. His wife was an extreme blonde, and was es pecially noticeable through her eccen tric dressing, and created quite a sensa tion whenever she appeared on the streets, which she did very frequently. From here the couple went to Murphy, which Is quite a summer resort. There, so the story goes, the two fell out and quarreled, and the husband, who had been drinking, threatened to whip his wife. When he started to put his threat Into execution his wife drew a dagger, which she wore at her side, and cut him several times. Mrs. Gould has been held to answer for tho killing. Gould claimed to have come here from Philadelphia and he always had plenty of money on his person. CANADA'S THREATS. ATTENTION CALLED TO THE LARGE FLEET AT VICTORIA. The United Sfnte and Clrent llrltaln May Once Store Hnvn n llottlta Sleettnc HUtorr Mny Ito Peat Itaoir, Ottawa. Oxt., July I). A special meeting of the Cabinet was hold bore yesterday afternoon. It was called for the purpose of considering the critical turn affairs have taken with regard to negotiations In connection with the Retiring Sea dtlllculty. A mem ber of the Cablnot said to night that the report that negoti ations had broken down, was untrue, as they were still going on. As to their nature he could say nothing beyond the fact that the government still had hopes that tome understanding would yet be reached. Tho government have great apprehensions that hKIIIOl COUt'LICATIOKS may yet arise before a settlement is reached. The IlrltUh Government havu Informal the Governor-General that they will stand by Canada and pro tect uer sealing vessel in Hearing sea from seizure by United States cruUers. if the lleet now congregating at Vic torla has to be dispatched for that purpose. Sir John Thompson, Minister of .hu ll ce, arrived In London yesterday, ami will at once confer with the Ilrltlsh government on the subject. An olllcer of the government said yesterday that the United Slates author ities believe they could do as they liked, as L'nglnml would not interfere.

The first seizure. It is believed, will be the signal for a formidable protest from Great llrltaln. Tho Show Did ot Take flace. Atlantic Citv, Julv a.

Tits Chinees Heps That Oe&frsm Will Repeal tke Exelnsian Law, and Are Willing to Wait Patiently. Nkw York, July 0. The Herald Washington correspondent telegraphs as follows: The New York paper which printed on Monday of this week an al lowed Interview with Minister Tsui re gardtng the complications between this country nnd China succeeded In crowding so many misleading and In correct statements Into Its nrtlclc as practically to destroy what little news value It miht otherwise have pos sessed. The Interviewer quoted the Minister as saving: 1. That unless tho United States Gov ernment repeals the law excluding Chinamen from this country that China will exclude Americans from her do main and forbid the future landing of others; and 3. That after the Kxclusion act was passed Secretary Hayard and the former .Minister from China formulated a new treaty which embodied the Kxclusion law, but that the Kmperor nnd his Council repudiated it, and that the In dignation against tho Minister was so Intense that his house nnd other prop erty wore destroyed by the excited pop ulace. Ilnd the foregoing remarkable utter ances attributed to the Minister ap nea rul In any Journal of standing In New York city they would havo created a profound sensation In the political and diplomatic circles ot Washington, where several of the leading New York dallies particularly the IttraUl enloy a wide circulation. Rut Its publication In the papor In question at once threw doubt upon Its authenticity a doubt, I might say, which was fully sustained by my inquiries at tho Legation to day. THK facts. My questions were addressed to Mr. Ilo, the Interpreter of the Minister's suite. Jir. 110 was educated la America. He speaks Rnglith with remarkable fluency. He Is a bright, clever man, courteous In deportment and obliging to the last degree. I first directed Mr. llo's attention to the paragraph wherein the Minister Is quoted as saying that China purposes retaliating against us. "It Is not so: the Minister could not have said that." said Mr. Ho with a deprecating wave of the hand. "That," I rejoined, "Is precisely what I have called to discover. Will you do me the favor to show the para graph to the Minister and ask him If he said what he is here quoted as say ing, and, if not, what he really did say" Mr. Ilo good naturedly left the room. He returned In a few minutes, say ing: "The Minister requests me to make the statement to you. The conversation with the reporter who wrote the Inter view occurred on board the steamer Ijl Rrelagne, during her recent voyage from Havre to New York. What the Minister said and what be Is quoted at saying are widely different. The Min ister said that China bad been given an ample provocation to retaliate In return for the action of the American Congress. He said that such a propo sition bad even been advanced by a few hot-heads, but, be added, it had never for a moment been entertained, nor was it likely to be. China, be informed tke interviewer, hoped tkat the Ameri can Congress would yet undue the wrone: it had done her, and no otker thought at present filled tke minds of her statesmen. Tkis Is tke only refer enct tke Minister made to retaliation during tke interview." SO SEW TKKATV. "What about tke alleged treaty sub sequently formulated between Secretary Bayard and Minister Tsui ?" "Tkat ia a worse statement tkan tke otker, and could only result from the reporter's Ignorance of diplomatic mat ters. There was, as you remember, a treaty pending between tke two coun tries wken tke Exclusion act was pasted. It was a restrictive, but not an exclusive obligation. It permitted our people under certain circumstances to visit Cklna ami return again to tke United States, wkile at tke same time pre venting any furtker immigration from Cklna. There kas bee mo otker treaty prepared siace." "Bow about tke reported destruction of tke Minister's kouse, wkiek tke In terview states occurred wken tkis alleged new treaty was received ia CM" "There was. as I kave tkown, no new treaty. When tke news of tke passage of tke Exclusion set reached Cklna a mob of disorderly people gatk ered i front of tke Wskater s kouse and committed s few minor outrage, but tkey were, after all, trivial in ckar scter ami anmuntwd to Hul or notkiog. "Tkeie is still aaotker mlsststemeat is tiae interview." fontiswed Mr. Ho laughingly, tke interview credit tke Mwister to tke United (state. Spain and jfaljffj j$ kas ni) mission to ftsaziL assl you will oblige kim by saying so.

Rkabiso, Pa., July 9 Nothing that ha occurred within a year In this city ha created so much talk as the an nouncement that the famous "Itull' Ltob, ex detective ami agent for the law ami Order League, hod been sud denly deprived of Tils speech. From last Saturday night, when Lyons says he had one of the "tpella" to which he Is subjected, until yeatenlsy afternoon he wo unable to utter a word, even In a whisper. This, It woe claimed, was due to a paralysis of the vocal organs. Instantly the famous Eckett extortion case was recalled. Thl was a case In which Lyon was arrested and placed on trial on the charge of taking $20 from Mrs. Kckert, the wife of a saloon keeper, whom he had prosecuted ami sent to prison on the charge of gambling. Lyon was acquitted, but the costs, amounting to about $300, were placed on him. Thus far he has not paid them, ami the ten doys respite allowed under the sentence expires to day. While on the stand testifying in his own defense, Lyon denied ever having taken the money or even having seen the woman, closing his remarks by say ing: "I hope thatuod may paralvzemy tongue If 1 am not telling the truth. There were many who beileved that his loss of speech was directly due to a visitation of Providence, for his evi dence was contradicted by several wit nesses. Late Monday afternoon Lyon was able to speak above a whisper, nnd yes terday he could converse for a short time In nn ordinary tono. He fears a return ot the nttack at any moment, nnd those who were inclined to think that he wns boingpunlshed for hts testimony still believe that his recovery ot speech Is only temporary. The detective s frlonds claim that his present Inability to talk Is due to the weakness of the muscles of the throat from the numerous attacks of vertigo to which he has lately been subject. newsIromIbroad.

The Marchioness was about the Queen's own age, and was one of her oldest and most Intimate friends, having been lady of the bed chamber for nearly forty years. They associated In the most unreserved man ner, the dignity of state being en tirely laid aside In their confidences. The Queen made the Marchioness her agent In Important personal negotia tions, ami It Is understood that the lady was consulted In regard to every mar riage In Ihe royal family from that of the Prince of wales down to the latest accession of a German princeling. The Russian Black Sea squadron, consisting of the Ironclads Slnope, Tchesme and Katarlnn II., the cruiser Merkutie and the gunboat Terek, are being put In readiness to sail, and It Is believed that their destination Is the Turkish coast, and that a naval demon stration Is Intended, with the object of Intimidating the Sultan M. Pssltch, president of the lost Servian SkuptChlna, has written a let ter claiming that the Car has promised to aid Servta In the f ulBlment ot Servian asid rations. The Krsatz reserve or supplemental reserve of Austria-Hungary, composed of all the recruits In exeess of the annual contingent allowed by the army law, has been warned to be lu readlnes for active service. The Honveds and the Landwehr have received similar notlflcatlon. The Hon veds of Hungary are a splendid body of troops, quite as welt trained as the regulars, and deeply imbued with uni versal Hl'KOABIAX HATKRIJ OF MltoU. The police agitation and the disorder resulting from the attempts of the men to obtain redress have Induced tke rais ing of fresh arguments In favor of kandinc tke control of tke police over to the County Council. This transfer was suggested some time ago, but tke gtacral sentiment in omclal circles was averse to tke change, ostensibly be cause tke functions of tke County Council were already kumckmtly Bumeious. but really because of tke desire to retain tke polka patronage In tke hands of tke government. It is quite likely tkat tke question of trans ferring tke police adminietratioa to tke County Council will be raised In Parlia ment as soon as an opportunity shall present ttaeti. The withdrawal of tke tke Gladsion ians from tke Procedure Committee as a protest against tke obstinancy ami arrogance of tke Tory Unionist coali tion kas filled tke latter witk dismay at tke dismal outlook for tke success of tkeir sckemes. Tke Conservative were confident ia tkeir ability to carr tke rules proposed by Mr. Smitk hi regard to tke suspension of bills, believing tkat tke liberals would, to a certain extent, assUt is tkeir adoption. Tke actios of tke latter yesterday. kowver. kas con viaced tke government tkat tke Liberals will determinedly OfFOefi TUB SVaVKMtOk MtWM, the failure of wkiek will compel tke ebaoluu ibaadonment of several im portant bills, and only tke most artd Uary tuetteds carry M tkrougb.

The publication of the eamlal con nected with the listing of th nwie llverfd palenls now on flic in Itw Own era! Iml Office has not aa vet led t any new developments. Thre It likely to be an Official Investigation of the matter, however, when the true laward nes of the unsavory job will be brought to light. Mcsrs. Combs A Co.. ex press llicmwlves a anxious for such aa Investigation, but If they are, it is cer tain that Secretary Noble would be glad to let it drop. Ill refusal to grant Kaldwln'it Italdwtn the Mine privilege has caused considerable comment, by no means flattering to hlase&seof per ception. Mr. Thomaa 11. McKee, the pr intemlent of the House doenmest room and a memljr of the firm of II. W. Combs A Co., said to a Cmitic reporter today: "My attention has been called to articles la the newspapers ami atatc ments recently made In the Senate during Ihe debate on a bill to pro v Ida for the delivery of the undelivered patents In the Land Uliice regarding the firm, of which, It is alleced. I aui a member. I desire to say that the entire controversy Is a question HUKI UV LAWVXIt and land abstractors In Arkansas MN sourl, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and MU aisslnpl, and I lie attack mode on It. V. ConiiM A Co. h tnsplted wholly liecHtisp of a reduction In the price. The land attorneys receive and have for twenty years past a fee of from f SO to $.10 for securing a land patent, charging as iiiui h for an old patent as a new one. "There old patents, as a class, have lieen laying in the Land Office for from fifteen to fifty year. The pur pose of our firm woe to place thtm in the hands ot the people to whom they lielonged Tor the lowest possible price. We originally started to charge 190 and soon found we could furnish tkem for $ j. "After spending about $18,009 in getting ready for thi work, we fount ourselves confronted by a COMBINATION or AWtTItACTOKS In the Male before named. These peo ple wrote letters to the DepartHMMl and deflators full of mUsUlemenU. and exaggerations, and It is from these, the entire controversy has arisen. "Only one question, however, U in volved. viz- Whether these lawyers throughout the States own the territory and haven right to make farmers and land owners pay tribute to tkem in se curing these patents. If tke patent now on file In the Lend Office, which we have listed, were delivered to the people, under the rule whl h has been In force for twenty years, it would coat the people fW.OOO.oOO. I'nder our ptan they would have to pay only about .500,000. thus making a SA IKO TO THK f KOI'LE of over forty-nine millions of dollars. The question is. Is it better that tkeee fifty millions be taken from tke farmer, ami scattered among three or four tkou sand attorneys, each making a nice sum, or whether our firm should suve tkis great sum to tke people and secure a competency for themselves. "I wish to say however, after a ysur'i hard work and an outlay of 118,000. we kave not yet received to exceed t for about 350 patents delivered. "Concerning Ike actio of tke Land Otfee in granting tkis privilege. I etre to aay but little. I f anyone desiring to know wkat tke fails are will read eopj' of circular II, dated Juiy 30, 1S75. ke will find in it tke statutes ami ex tracts Ikerefrom. which are clear and distinct and give to any cttUest of tke United State tke right to kave copse of papers, books and records ia tk Land OtJLce when tke same ia not to be used ia prosecution of claims ajpUnat tke Government "Tke practice of tke oBke (or mow tkan thirty years kas tees unUotsa ia f urnUkiag copies under tke statute-1 If it were eresnry I could glv a IUIUH SOUS lOCKTik ia Indian wkew lists of tke attest could ke found.
