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
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
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
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
l what is golBg ob around bin; but
nobody seeing willies to premise that
no Blaine Frye lettsri wilt be forth

agreement shall have bees concluded.

Augusta, Ga., July 81. Tho Au

tho business Interests of Augusta,
adopted tho following preamble and
resolutions dcrouncing the Lodge bill
nnd tho proposed boycott:
Whereas tbo Eouth Is peaceful and pros
perous, tho relations between tbo races are
amicable, and all our people are engaged
In developing tbo agricultural, mining and
manufacturing resources of tbls section;
Whereas a cotton crop of 7,350,000 hales,
tbo building of manufactures of various
kinds and tbo development of ottrconl, iron
and lumber industry constitutes tbo Bouth's
evidence of Its peaco and good wilt and Us
contribution to tho aggrcgato wealth of tbo
nation: tbcrefore, bo It
Jteiolted, That tho passagoof the Lodge
Elections bill, now before tho Senate, will
prove a disturbing and pernicious factor In
the Mouth: will retard tbo peaceful and
prosperous material development now tak
ing place; will engender bad blood nnd
tiling about conflicts between the blacks
and whites; will accomplish no good, but,
on tho contrary, bo fruitful of most deplor
able results to tbo poaco of tho country and
Us business Interests.
Jtnohcfl. While deploring tbo evil re
sults of tbo Lodge Klcctlon bill, wo con
demn as unwlso any movement that contem
plates tbo Interruption ot tbo business rela

attempt to boycott tbo North for politic il
rcasous would bo as Impracticable, as It
would t)o unfortunate. We, thero'ore,
condemn any effort to disturb or to Inter
rupt tbo business relation! between tbe
South and tbo Noitli, and appeal to the
common sense, common Interests nnd pa
triotism of tbo North to prevent tbe enact
ment of tbe Lodge Election bill.

tt la Not Known When the Onso Will
be Decided,
There Is no tolling Just now when tho
proceedings In the Block trial will be
leached. 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.

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
The Dock Laborers Union, which
now numbers 50,000 men, unfurled
their banner to-day amid great enthu

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

trying to build on sand foundations.

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

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

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.

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.

A statement of tbls Importance could
not, of course, be printed in the World
without the fullest Investigation. The
recent files of Frank LenUct JllHtmt-ed

disclosing no advertisement at least up
to data of tbo character referred to.
It Is well known that the laws of New
York against the publication of any lot
tery advertisement are extremely strln
gtnt, the punishment helm; a heavy
of the oITendlne publisher at tho discre

New Yoik Sun was prosecuted under
this statute at the Instigation of Anthony
Cnrrstock, and since that date no netvs
ptpirof New York hat ventured to open
Its columns to anything save tbe most
cut riled references to cither the Louisi
ana or any other lottery. Thlt nvir have
restrained Frank I.ti' IlinMrattl
Xttrpair from accepting such an ad
vertisement, even httd it been solicited
in Its name bv Mr. Russell It. Harrison.
The fact of Mr. Harrison's connection
Vtlth the newspaper it
by various Indorsements ot Its owner,
Mr. W.VJ. Arkwl. Is fast. It wut
widely published only tome few weak
