TIIK PRESIDENT WEAKENS. HIS lUCnllONR BENDS nEFOKK A WltlS- run nr ozAn iu,r New York, July 81. The San'i Washington correspondent telegraphs! President Harrison has been called down from his lpfty dreams ot reciprocal trcctlcs hy the hoarse, harsh whisper of Speaker Heed, and his spinal column lias assumed a very flexible condition. A man who Is on conflcnllat terms with tho New York Senators Is au thority for tho Btntcmcnt that the President sent for Senator Aldrlch yesterday and invited tho Rhode Island man to dinner. After their quiet meal tho President unbossomed himself In a rather lachrymose way, and said that ho had decided to call a halt for the present in tho matter of reciprocity. It seems that a forcible message from Speaker Itccd, although delivered by proxy, tnado so telling an cfTcct on tho President that ho Is already willing TO imoi' TUB BUIJJECT If tbo members of the Bcnato will allow him to do bo. Ho has a very high rcrpect for tho commands of tbo man who-loohs-llko-Shnkospcarc, and now that tho latter says no reciprocity measure shall pats tho House, Mr. Harrison seems to have lost all hope of accomplishing anything. Tho trouble Is that, however much tho President may want to let tbo sub ject drop, tbo Republican Senators, and especially Senators Hlscock and Aldrlch, will iint let blm do so. Ho has gone so far that tbey probably think It will not hurt him to ro a little further. At all events they aro unwilling to let the President out from under his load, nnd it Is certain that Senator Aldrlch told tho President so. Hut Sir. Harrison was ovidontly unwilling to load any movement against Mr. Heed unlaw there was soma certainty that ha would coma out ahead. With this idea In view Iir. EXACTED A IMtOSUSE from Senator Aldrlch and thlsof course binds Mr. lllsrock, for ihotwo Sen ators aro as twins In this matter as In everything else that nothing would be done openly on tho line of the Aldrlch amendment until ha (tho President) re turns from his trip to Cape May Point, lie Implied, If he did not directly as sert, that he was not ready to back up the Senators In any more reciprocity business, until a few House Repub licans had fallen into the Senate pro cession Mournfully he bade Messrs, Hlscock and Aldrlch and Allison go forth on their missionary work, and In timated that if tbey could show a large number of converts by the time he came back he might be willing to TUVCONCU SIONH WITH El'EAKKU REED. Meanwhile the President will trust to Providence and the reopened seal fishery ciuestlun to put a powerful padlock on the too ready lips of JjIs Secretary of State, The Senators are to attempt to patch up some sort of an understanding with the rebellious Republicans who have closed their ears to the voice of the senior "man from Maine," and until they can show an agree ment the President will endeavor to keep reciprocity In the background. If Representative Grosveoor writes no more letters to the newspapers over his own signature, and if Tom Reed keeps both his eyes shut while the proselyting Is progressing, and if the Secretary of State will only go fishing off the Newfoundland Dinks fr a few weeks, the President hopes that be may be able to again approve of the reciprocity movement, as he did lees than two weeks ago. It improbable that Representative Grosvesor wilt promise not to write any more of web letters a the one in which be replied to Secretary Blaine It Is even poaeiUe that tk amused Speaker may pretend TO BE ITTKKLY MKOKJUtT l what is golBg ob around bin; but nobody seeing willies to premise that no Blaine Frye lettsri wilt be forth coming until the work of ranching aa agreement shall have bees concluded.

All the testimony has been written out by the stenographer, hut it has not as yet been transmitted to the Commissioners. Before this is dona there arc two important questions to be stttled, and Major Moore and the Com missioners have them under consider ation. Tho first nnd most Important one h, shall Mr. Cook be allowed to represent Mr. IiOwenstein in any evidence given by Frederick Lowensteln? and the sec ond covers the problem as to whether Lowenstoin's evidence shall be admitted at all, insomuch as tho matter has al ready been civon a hoaring in tho Cilmlnaf Court. Just now there is naturally much specu lation as to what will bo tho outcome of theeo pollco trials. Tho question Is asked: "Will those chost nuls cut any llguro?" In both trials charges that woto made years and years ago have been revived, while the more recent conduct of certain olllcera has been overlooked.

ENLISTED MEN IN THE BRITISH ARUY TO COMPLAIN OF ABUSES. The Dock Laborer' Union fully Orcn- liedtjalvnllon Army llnrrncUs. A Delicti In the Muri- carUn lludcet. Loxdok. July ai. It Is customary la tho British Army for tho Inspector General, at certain intervals, to ask tho men on perado whether thoy hava any complaints to make. This has been regarded as a mere form, none of the soldiers, however serious their griev ances, acting upon tho olllclal query. Now, howuver, thero Is a movement among the enlisted men in London, Aldorshot and elsewhere to present complaints as to long-standing abuses, some of which have attracted tho atten tion of even tbe higher members of tha service. As yet no visible token has been forthcoming that the abuses are likely to be remedied, but thero are re ports to the effect that since their alarm over tbe Grenadier Guards' meeting the authorities are contemplating a reform that will obviate the more serious of the causes of complaint. The Murning J'ot renews Its attack upon the abuses co'nnected with the ad ministration of tbe law courts. The judges and all subordinate oiMcers are accused of laziness and of wasting time. Tbe result of the slow methods employed in transacting business is that the courts are 000 cases In arrears. The proposal bas been made to create additional judgeships, but the I'ott shows that the arrearage of Dullness is not due to over- woru, but underwork on the part ot tne JU The Dock Laborers Union, which now numbers 50,000 men, unfurled their banner to-day amid great enthu siasm. The union has been brought to a high state of efficiency by tbe tireless efforts of Burns, Tlllett, Mann and other organisers, though, when the project was first started, many thought that tbe attempt to bring about solid ity among tbe poor dockers .was like trying to build on sand foundations.

Leo for his discharge from service, tho olllcer of the deck of that vessel was A. T. Blssell, the wiltcr of this article. Let us now go Into tho causo of Heed's entry Into the service. In 1804 ho was drafted, having been previously a mem ber of the Stny-at-IIomc-Ouards, who were nrmed with broomsticks, mora than n 1,000 miles from Virginia a great, big sis fooler, who thought too much of his Ufa to place It In jeopardy during tho times when every man who was pofscsscd of a scintilla of patriot Ism went to tho front in defense of the Star Spangled Banner and tho Union ot the States that form our glorious Fed eration. I said he was drafted. That Is tho truth. It Is true that ho was only a young man, hut ho was, nt tho begin ning of tho war, 23 yoars of age, and although ha has lately shown himself as being possessed of n sanguinary dis position, then ho did not cvlnco any dc tiro to tako his chancos on this oonv rini.u ok iuttlr, hut reserved himself for a bloodless scene of strife to wit: The nron.i of the I'lfiy-ftrst Congress of tho United States, where, as tha dominating spirit, as Speaker, he could and did with his nhlp excoriate the hide of truculent mend cis of the Republican stripe and dilve them as n white overseer over wblto slaves Into traces, and with his slim majority latieh and sneer at the minority of the Democratic sldo of the House of Representatives. I said that bo was drafltd. As soon as that uvont happoned he hied himself to Washington and through the inllit enco nf Hon. James O. Blaine was an pointed an acting auUtunt jnyiiuitfer in tho United States Navy In the Mosquito licet of tho Ohio ltlver and was asslzned to duly on astern wheel steamer, named tho Nymph, which carried two six pound guns. It was always far away from danger and out of tho range ot the guns of the rebels, whose closest where abouts were from four hundred to clht hundred miles distant. I now propose to consider carefully and tiuthfully his career since his dis charge and from tbe time he plunged into THE NATIONAL 1'OLITICAI. ARKNV. He was elected as a Representative to Congress from the First district of 3Ialne to serve In the Fortyllfth Con gress, and was continuously In said position until and Including tbe present, the Fifty-first Congress. He has been for the past twelve years the attorney of the Northern Pacific Itallroad Com p&ny, and still is in the service nt that gigantic corporation as such. He was elected Speaker of tbe House by rea son of his assumed audacity or bold ness, through the Influences that were brought to bear on that body by tbe manipulations of the managers of the Northern Pacific, tbe Canada Paclflc, and the Central Pacific Railroad com panies, with tbe additional aid and in iiuesca of the magnate of Wall street, New York. It was their money that elected him Speaker, and, as a bombast and a lraud, be is, par excellence, "tbe eblef among tbem all. and the one altogether lovely;" that Is, of all hU competitor is that role. MautBum is his Deity, and there is nothing be wukl not attempt In the name of his party, no matter bow vile, execrable and loathsome It wight he. that be would sot favorably consider and endeavor to encompass in his de sire to achieve that which will enable him to secure THK P!CK IK UOLLABS whkh is assured to hist is ease of suc cess.

The following explanation ot tho article that succeeds it should bo read attentively by all fair-minded men, re gardless of politics. It was prepared by me during; the month of November, 1680, just prior to tho assembling of the Fifty tlrst Congress, hut was not made public for the reason that Influences were brought to hear to elect Tom Rttd as Speaker of the House, which Is set forth fully In the first part ot this article, and was ot such weight that Rcod could not have been beaten even were It proven that he was his Sutanlc Majesty, tall, horns, hoofs, etc. Amos T.

I.ociBTit.i.is, Kr., July 81. "The Anwrtean Aseoclatlrm ami Mayers' League" Is about the title of tbe new or ganlrallon that will blossom out with tbe spring ot 1891. That a coalition be tween these two organizations will be foimcd there Is little doubt. The matter has been quietly agitate in tbeKatt for two weeks, and it will terminate In abrmt one month, ami it will be a heavy blow at the National League. A promi nent Brotherhood official was in Louis ville yesterday and In order that bis presence In the city might not be known lie took his meals at a restaurant. He left on a morning train. To a mutual friend he said: "Tho Flayers' League ami Associa tion 111 combine next September mak ing the greatest baselmll organisation that ever existed. Our plans have about been completed, and It will not be long before thev will materialize. The new League will compose debt clubs. In the West will be Cleveland. St. Louis, Chicago anil Louisville, and In the Kftst will lie found Philadelphia, Boston, New Yotk and Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Association and Players' Clubs will combine, and the Athletic and Philadelphia Clubs will do tho same. Tho stock will bo divided to suit the backers ot tbo different clubs. Tho best players will be selected from tho two orgnnl7Atloris, nnd tho remain. Ing players will ha given to the minor Leagues as an Inducement for them to come under our protection, Now thoy have to pay the American Association and National League a largo sum for tha protection of tha national agreement. Wo will give them protection without charge, in addition to tho players." President Phelps, when nsked about tho matter, would neither deny nor affirm It. BURNING THEIR OWN TOWN. Cltlrens or nn Oil Vlllace Determine to Kratlo nn Obnoxious Lnw, Toledo, Ohio, July 31, Citizens ot Balrdstown, an oil town twonty mllos south of this city, arc alleged to have entered into n conspiracy to burn their own town. Thorn hava bcon five In cendiary fires within n weok, and not a business houso has beon left standing. A short tltno ngo the city authorities passed nn ordinance, forbidding the sinking of any gas or oil wells within the town limits. Most of the citizens held town lots, which they hoped to dispose of to oil speculators, and when the ordinance was passed, it is said, they determined to burn the town, as tbey considered tho possibilities below the ground more valuable than the property above It. Tho services of a Cincinnati detective were called In, but the citizens, after hanging blm to a tree until life was al most extinct, made him leave the town. But few houses are left standing. OUR CRUISERS HEAH BUSINESS. The ltusli Iteporttil to Have Hoarded a IliltUli Scalar. YiCToniA. B. C, July 31. News bas beon received here of the seizure of the Seattle s:booner George It. White by the United States customs agents at Ounalaska. The schooner had neg lected to keep a copy ot the bond riled that the would not take firearms Into Alaska. The Victoria schooner Ariel is re ported to have been boanled by the cutter Rush and warned to keep out of Behtlng Sea. A copy of the formal proclamation was given to the captain. This incident, it It thought, contradicts the belief that tbe policy of 1865 will be pursued this season by the United States. BRITISH WARSHIPS IteudeivoulDE d the Neighborhood ur llelirlne aea.
