How the Heirs Will Manage the Vast
[Special to the Press.]
Augusta, Nov. 19.—Since the death of the
two brothers, Abner and Philander Coburn
of Skowhegan, their property, most of which
was held in common by the two, has been
managed by the executors, and is in their
hands at the present time, but will be turned
ever to the heirs at no distant day. What to
do with this vast property becomes a ques
tion with the heirs, they being quite numer
ous. To divide it up, each one taking his or
her share, would be a tedious undertaking
and Involve no small amount of loss, and it
was decided after careful consideration and
the taking of legal advice, to operate the
real estate of both the brothers as a whole,
which at this time Includes 250,000 acres of
valuable timber land in Marne, large tracts
in Wisconsin, Michigan, Alabama, Washing
wu Acuiwij, nuu »u,vwu acres or vvncai
lands in Dakota. Besides the above, there
is valuable seashore property at Nantasket
Beach, Massachusetts, and other parts of
that State. The whole will amount to up
wards of S2,000,000. With careful manage
ment and to secure this is the aim of the
heirs. It is proposed to form a trust, so to
speak, with able business men at tbe bead of
it. To put the property in shape for their
control will require extensive legal transac
tions and a large amount of labor and atten
tion. To this and the heirs have retained
Hon. Orville D. Baker of this city as coun
sel, and he lias already entered upon tbe
work, in which he will be obliged to make
several visits west, ank give much of his at
tention for some time to come. There are
eleven branches of the heirs, the most nu
merous being the Marstons and tbe Coburns.
There are so many that the fractional inter
ests which each heir would have that the
smallest common denominatior necessary to
represent all their parts would be 4125.
The Maine Central Depot at Newport

Wheeling, W. Va., Nov. 19.—Gen. Goff

Figures In the House.
Washington, Nov. 19—The dispatch
from San Francisco saying that an error had
bean discovered in the election returns ol
the Fifth District of California which, UblesE
the official count should determine other
wise, would give the district to Ciuvio, the
Democratic candidate, as heretofore report
ed, has Set the professional enumerators who
lire engaged in determining the political
complexion of the next House to making
new tables and claims. The.HoUse officials
who represent the Democratic enumerators
say that if the new discovery holds good the
next House will stand 163 Democrats to 162
Republicans, giving the Democrats a majori
ty of one. They get this one by claiming all
four of the West Virginia members, the sec
ond North Carolina, Where Cheatham, Re
publican, his been elected over Simmons on
the face of the returns, and the Fourth Dis
trict of Maryland, were Stockbridge (Rep.)
was returned as elected over Raynor (Dem.)
In response to this Democratic claim the
Republican enumerators say that even grant
ing the Democrats the benefit of the sup
posed newly-discovered gain in California,
all of the West Virginia members and the
Fourth Maryland District, the House would
duii nave a fvrijuuucuu majority, me ngures
standing 163 Republicans to 162 Democrats.
They say the Democratic claim to the second
North Carolina district is utterly absurd, as
the returns which give Cheatham, the Re
publican candidate, a majority of over 600 are
quasi-offleial, and the returns have reached a
point, In the process of declaring the official
result, that cannot be changed by any con
ceivable legal means. They say the only
Way left to throw Cheatham out would be
for the Governor of the State to refuse to
give him a certificate of election,which would
be an extraordinary act, and they think it is
hardly conceivable that the Governor would
do such a thing. The fourth Maryland, or
Stockbridge-Raynor district, the Republi
cans claim,stands in a position precisely sim
ilar to the second North Carolina, and they
do not see how it is possible for Stockbrldge
to be deprived of a certificate of elec;
tion except by some extraordinary act of the
Governor of Maryland. If the attempt is
made the Republicans say that Chairman
Quay is prepared to fight, the matter to the
death with the greatest talent of the country
as his counsel. So granting the Democrats the
new supposed gain in California and all of
the West Virginia members, and treating as
absurd their claims to the Fourth Maryland
and the Second North Carolina districts, the
next House would stand 161 Republicans to
161 Democrats. But it is certain that the
Republicans have at least one in West Vir
ginia. The result of the recent election in
w est Virginia is still involved in doubt, and
will remain so until an official count is
made. The vote on the electoral ticket
is unquestionably lnfavor of Clevel >nd
bv a majority of about 1000, and while these
figures may be somewhat changed in the
final count, the result will not De affected.
It is almost equally certain that the Demo
cratic State ticket, with the exception of
go vernor, is elected.
The Civil Service.
Indianapolis, Nov. 19.—While expectant
politicians are speculating upon probable ap
pointment and political theorists are dis
cussing whait may be the policy of the ad
ministration in relation to sectional matters,
Indiana Democrats are assiduously endeav
oring to ascertain from some reliable source
in what spirit the civil service law will be
observed under the rule of the President
elect. His utterances regarding the system
have been plain enough, but it is reassurance
that is desired. The civil service reformers
were among the most earnest of General
Harrison’s supporters in Indiana. With few
caucjjuuijp, an wiiu auvucttieu L1HVCI1U1U s
election in 1884 voted for Harrison as his
successor. The leaders in the movement
frequently asserted during the campaign that
they had received authoritative assurance
that the law would be properly and satisfac
torily enforced by General Harrison if ho
should be elected.
General Harrison’s most intimate friends,
some of whom are not themselves in sympa
thy with the civil service idea, are positive
in asserting that the civil service regulations
will be faithfully observed under the new
“How rigidly will the civil service law be
enforced by the President-elect?” was asked
John C. New, who Is expected to have some
thing to do with the mutter.
“i think it will be satisfactorily enforced,”
replied Mr. New. “1 do not believe that
there will be any great haste in turning out
Democrats. There will be no clean sweep,
Gen. Harrison is a believer in the civil ser
vice idea, and he will, I think, enforce the
spirit, if not the letter of the law. Many
changes will be made, but not without cause.
I apprehend, however, that there will be
causa enough for a great many changes. The
postal service of the country fs outrageously
bad. Everyone knows it. Here, in Indiana,
it is as bad as incompetent men can make it.
Gen. Harrison, 1 think, fully appreciates the
importance of improving the service, and it
is evident that it can only be done by put
ting the work into the hands of more compe
tent men.”
“Then there will probably be more changes
in the postal service than in the other de
partments of the public service?”
“I think so.”
On further conversation some of the cur
rent talk about cabinet appointments was
repeated to Mr. New, and he was asked:
“Is it really true.as Mr. Huston and others
stated, that you have said that vou do not
desire to be In the Cabinet?”
“I do not recall that I have ever made such
a statement. I have been endeayoring to
avoid saying anything whatever about the
Cabinet. ’
Within the last day or two there has been
some rather wild speculation, connecting ex
Governor Porter with the Cabinet, as Indi
ana’s representative, but the talk about the
possibility of such a thing comes from a
source that is entitled to little credence in
such matters. It is believed by those who
ought to know something about the matter,
that ex-Governor Porter will be given recog
nition for his services during the campaign.
He was one of the most valuable speakers in
the field, and notwithstanding reports to the
contrary, gave loyal support to General Har
rison’s candidacy. His reward will prob
ably be Minister to St. Petersburg. He is
specially interested in the study of Russian
history, and for that reason a temporary res
idence in that country would be agreeable to
Will Support Wanamaker.
Washington, Nov. 19.—Senator Quay,
who war asked as to the truth of
ment that Mr. Wanamaker of Philadelphia
was to be a member of President Harrison’s
cabinet, said that he had heard nothing of
any such arrangement.
“So far as Mr. Wanamaker is concerned,’’
Mr. Quay continued, “I am for him for any
thing he wants, but he has not asked for
anything yet, nor given me any intimation
that he intends to do so.”
“What do you think of the chances of
Pennsylvania being represented in the cab
inet?” was asked.
"f 6imply do not know anything about it;
General Harrison has not volunteered any
information abouf the gentlemen he expects
to call about his council board, and 1 have
not asked him for any.
The Cood of the Whole People.
Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 19.—Colonel J. W.
Jefferson, a prominent business man of
Memphis, Tenn., recently wrote to Presi
dent-elect Harrison asking him to indicate,
as far as he might properly do so, the proba
ble policy of his administration toward the
South. He has received the following reply:
My Dear Sir—Your kind letter has been re
ceived and I am glad to know time the result of
the election brought satisfaction to au army com
rade UviDg iu the South. I notice what you say
about the situation there aud assure you that I
appreciate its gravity aud have the moBl sincere
desire to be well informed both as to men and
affairs In the South. I do most sincerely desire
to piomote the general good of our whole people,
without reference to State lines, and I shall be
glad to have the friendly advice aud co-operation
of the law abiding and conservative people in all

Diphtheria at the Insane Asylum.
Augusta, Nov. 19.—On Saturday a fresh
outbreak of diphtheria occurred in the low
er South ward of the Insane Hospital on the
male side of the hospital, a patient being
taken sick with the disease, and other cases
in the same locality are feared. The occur
rence of a new case at this time is particular
ly disheartening, as from the length of time
intervening since the last case developed, it
was confidently supposed the disease had
been completely eradicated. In fact, so gen
eral was this belief, that during the visit of
the trustees, last week, all restriction le
garding the mingling of patients, was re
moved, and a largely attended sociable and
dance was held. Dr. Sanborn, the superin
tendent, who had boarded his family at the
Cony House during the prevalence of the
disease, had again installed them in their
apartments at the institution, so confident
was he that the disease lud completely dis
appeared, and that the building was en
tirely free from contagion.

St. Louis, Nov . 19.—The famous Doris
mansion in the West End burned this morn
ing. The structure cost about 8100,000 and
was not insured for more than one-fourth of
its value. The mansion was erected by the
late General Doris for a homestead and re
mained in the possession of the family until
the terrible tragedy of six years ago, when
Russell Brown, a grandson of Mrs. General
Doris, assisted by Pat McGlew, a Chicago
bartender, smothered his grandmother to se
cure some money and jewelry to continue a
debauch. The youthful murderers were
convicted and sentenced to 15 years each in
the penitentiary at Jefferson.

The News cf the Day at the National
Washington, Not. 19.—President Cleve
land does not expect to become president of
a railroad company or counsel for a corpora
tion when he retires from the, Executiye
Mansion on the 4th day of next March. He
has not decided to go to Europe, nor will he
live in retirement at .Oak View or sell that
fine suburban property, as various reports
have stated. First of all, Mr. Cleveland will
take a good long vacation when he retires
from office. He will spend some time in
New Fork city, and perhaps make a Westerh
trip later lh the spring as far as the Pacific
Coast. When summer opens it is likely to
find him at his brother's parsonage, up on
the edge of the North Woods, ready to
strike into the wilderness for a good long
fishing expedition; and then- well, Mr,
Cleveland himself does not know just what
he’ll do next. He intends to be as deliber
ate in making up bis mind about settling
down in life as he is in determining his acts
in public life. The chances are that another
autumn will see citizen Grover Cleveland
one of the sixteen hundred thousand souls
that make up the population of the great
metropolis. But the rest and fishing and
travel are to come first, and about the latter
especially there will be many consultations,
in which Mrs Drnvur rinunl.m,Vc »iun,Q n,m
have great weight before a programme is de
cided upon. Oak View will not be sold unless
somebody should offer a very big price for it.
It will not long be the home of the Cleve
lands, but they will hold It as an Investment.
The lands all around it are rapidly increas
ing in value, and it will some day be worth a

Recoiled on Their Own Heads.
Washington, Nov. 19.—The failure of the
Durham Bank, and of Blackwell, the great
tobacco manufacturer of Durham, N. C-, has
thrown many of the business men of that
town and the surrounding region into bank
ruptcy and seriously crippled many more.
Another sad feature of the disaster Is th
throwing out of employment of many work
ing people at the opening of winter.
It seems that the crash was directly trace
able to the outbreak of mob violence on the
day after the election, one result of which
was the unlawful expulsion from Durham of
Mr. Jordan and his family because he was
an active Republican and had the temerity to
be a candidate for a local office. A promin
ent North Carolina man said today:
“Blackwell, the great tobacco man, has
been the financial backbone of Durham, and
the business prosperity of the town depend
ed very largely on his prosperity and success.
Some time ago he and the men directly as
sociated with him became somewhat em
made to obtain a loan from Northern capi«
talists to tide over the difficulty. It was suc
“The sum of 830,000 was obtained as a call
loan, aud ati additienal sum of 835,000 was to
be furnished as soon as needed. This was
all that the Durham men required to keep
them on their feet. When the news of the
political outbreak reached the Northern
creditors they were alarmed, for capital is
always and proverbially timid, and they not
only refused to supply the promised 835,000
but demanded the immediate repayment of
of the 830,000 already advanced.
"That caused the crash. The Northern
creditors mav have been too easily alarmed,
but after all It was natural for them not to
desire to risk investments In a community
where property appeared to be insecure and
life itself in danger on account of political
opinions. I am sorry, but I fear that the
political disturbance at Durham will do
much material harm to the State and hinder
its business prosperity.”
None of the apologists for the outrage up
on Jordan and his innocent and defenceless
family has deigned to explain why, if he was
an incendiary, or inclined others to become
incendiaries, he was not arrested and prose
cuted in the courts. It Is a notorious fact
that the entire judiciary of North Carolina,
from local magistrates up to the highest tri
bunal, is in Democratic hands, and there is
no reason whatever to believe, especially in
view of Jordan’s summary deportation, that
a Durham jury would err on the side of le
niency, if called upon to render a verdict in
a cause in which a northern man and a Re
publican should be brought to answer lor a
crime committed against the person or prop
erty of a Democrat and inspired by political

Land Purchase Scheme.
_ I
An Attempt to Hide a Phase of the
Irish Question.
Settlement of Arrears of Pent the
True Solution.
London, Nov. 19.—In the Commons this
evening, Mr. Madden, Solicitor General for
Ireland, in the absence of Mr. Balfour,
Chief Secretary for Ireland, who Is 111,
brought In a bill to further facilitate the
purchase by tenants of iand In Ireland, by
adding £5,000,000 to the amount applicable
under the Ashbourne act. Mr. Madden de
scribed the Ashbourne act as a great success.
There had been 14,338 signed agreements for
the purchase of land, of which 8,632 had been
completed. There were only two courses
open to the government. To abandon the
scheme of land purchase, or extend the act.
The fact that the act had been a conspicuous
success justified the government in seeking
to enlarge its operations.
When Mr. Madden had finished, Mr. Glad
stone arose. He was received with prolong
ed cheering from the opposition. Mr. Glad
stone moved the following amendment to
the government proposal:
That, In lieu of voting £ >,< 00,000, it Is expedi
ent In view of the lamentable sufferings arising
from the recent evictions in Ireland, to extend
the land law of 1887, so as to empower the courts
to reduce or cancel arrears of rents found to be
Mr. Gladstone complained that the govern
ment had broken its pledge to the House.
After obtaining the whole command of the
time at the disposal of the members, under
an engagement that no controversial meas
ures should be introduced, here was a bill of
the first importance challenging discussion.
It was submitted with the threat that it
would be put forward daily until settled.
His protest was equally against the mode of
presenting the bill aDd the method in which
its discussion was to be pressed. His amend

! nor would it necessarily stop its operation.
‘He did not desire to stop the operation of
i- the act. whatever he might consider its dan
: 8er* He did not oppose the bill because it
I proposed to keep the act alive, but he object
, ed to it because of the amount demanded,
i The government ought to have asked Parlia
i ment for a limited grant which would suffice
j to enable them to continue the operation of
the act until spring when Parliament could
! reconsider the whole matter. The opposi
tion would cheerfully agree to such an ad
vance, but the government, instead of tak
Ing that course, produced a hill Involving
Parliament in a fresh approval of its land
Purchase policy. [Cries of Hear! Hear!]
Mr. Gladstone continued, stating that it
was the manifest design of the Government
to withdraw the subject of Irish land from
the view of Parliament for several years.
[Cheers.] That was not a coarse which
could be allowed. The opposition was not
: insensible to the value of land purchase. He
did not desire to see landlords or any other
class removed in a body. He wanted to see
them not less, but a great deal more Irish
than they were, and to see them residents
Instead of absentees. The principle of the
previous land acts was totally different from
the Ashbourne act, under which £5,000,000
were obtained apparently as a precedent for
another five millions,thus drawing the House
by slow degrees into a system from which
there was no escape from putting land into
the hands of the state, making the state the
immediate landlord without proper guar&n
^. H°w different was the proposal from
the Liberal side. When Mr. Trevelyan laid
down the principle that the Government
should not ask national taxpayers to ad
vance purchase money unless the taxpayers
in Ireland evinced confidence in the tenants
by offering local guarantees. He (Mr. Glad
stone) always objected to the Ashbourne act
as giving the Initiative of purchase to the
landlords while he considered the peasants
ought to have the initiative. If an imperial
guarantee was ever given for the purchase of
land in Ireland, the security must convey a
moral certainty to the Government* [Cheers ]
\\ hat reason had the government for re
fusing with such tenacity to deal with ar
rears? Were they means of insuring the
servitude of the tenant? [Parnellitecheers.]
It was certain that this bill would give the
landlord a leverage to bring up rents, while
it would enable only a handfulol tenants to
acquire holdings. Certainly it would assist
the government in their land-purchase
scheme, but under what inadequate and pre
carious security for repayment of advances.
Doubtless the Irish tenants could be praised
as scrupulous in the payment of fair rents,
but if another collapse of agricultural prices
recurreu, me iarmers might he unable to pay
their instalments under the bill. The gov
ernment were not justified in relying upon a
tenant s will to pay after the recent declara
tion of Lord Salisbury that a majority of
3,000,000 in Ireland were bent upon putting
down a minority of 2,000,000 to get at and
rifle their pockets. [Cheers.J If the Irish
men had no respect for the pockets of their
countrymen, were they likely to respect the
English exchequer? Were those who have
been thus prescribed by the head of the gov
ernment, people to be trusted as debtors of
the State. [Laughter and cheers.J
This land purchase had no immediate
claim to the character of the arrears in ques
tion. The tenants themselves had urgently
demanded the settlement of arrears and a
similar necessity had been acknowledged in
the case of the crofters of Scotland. Much
greater was the need of Ireland when
arrears were running without limit and led
to the paralysis of the farmers’ engagements
and the unceasing flow of evictions. Evic
tions upon arrears prevented the tenant from
obtaining the benefit of judicial rents. [Hear,
hear.J Arrears were thus a weapon against
the tenants.defeatlng and annulling the land
law which had been passed for their benefit.
[Hear! Hear!| They made the landlords mas
ters of the land act and masters of the con
ditions for the sale of land and the fortunes
of the tenants. If the government had the
tenants welfare earnestly at heart, if, in
stead of supporting the landlords, they
meant to relieve the distressed tenants, they
would deal with arrears instead of pressing
a dangerous measure which provided ma
chinery for preventing the reduction of rent
and which afforded facility for augmenting
rents and multiplying evictions with all
their horrible incidents. He asked the
House to intervene and prevent a recurrence
of mischief too certain to ensue, perhaps in
a greatly augmented scale under the govern
ment’s policy. Let them do justice to Ire
land in the matter of arrears. [Cheers.]
Mr. Goschen, chancellor of the exchequer,
denied that the government were pledged
not to Introduce controversial measures dur
ing the winter session. Mr. Gladstone’s
statement that it the government had asked
just sufficient to keep the act in operation
until next session. It would have been
granted, was incorrect. Steps were taken to
ascertain whether such a proposal would be
acceptable and the response did not en
courage the attempt. [Hear, hear.] The
immediate extension of the Ashbourne act
was a necessity* and was desired by the
tenants. He hoped the House and country
would perceive that they were dealing with
a land purchase which was not incompatible
with dealing with arrears. The government
was prepared to deal with arrears in due
time. [Hear! Hear!] The suggestion that
they were practically assisting the landlords
in a conspiracy to allow arrears to continue
and to encourage evictions was so absurd it
was scarcely worth answering.
Mr. O’Brien maintained that the bill
would make the rich tenants richer, but
leave viie poor couers in ine nw in as oaa
a position as ever. It was merely a plan to
shovel English gold into the pockets of
Irish landlords. Mr. Campbell Bonneman,
Liberal, severely censured the manner in
which the government were thrusting the
bill upon the House. Before proposing ex
tension, there ought to have been a select
committee to inquire into the working of
the Ashbourne act.

the Life Saving crew from Lubec, I com
menced to pick up wbat 1 could of the
wreck. We had scarcely got to work when a
customs’ officer and wreck master from
Welchpool came to me aDd asked if 1 had
reported to the wreckmaster. I told him I
had not, as what little property remained
was in great danger and required Instani at
tention. Upon this statement he ordered
everything to be seized, and left a keeper
with a musket on bis shoulder to guard the
wreck. At the same time he ordered away a
boat that was assisting me, and obliged the
owner to go two miles to a Dominion custom
house to enter his boat. Among the wreck
material seized was a basket of food fur
nished us by Captain Myers of the West
Quoddy Life Saving Station, also a pair of
stockings belonging to my child, and before
I could get the release of any part of this
Sroperty I was compelled to telegraph to St
ohn. This officer at Campobello also de
manded my vessel’s papers which I would
not give up, as I felt that I was violating no
lawTn acting as my own wreckmaster."

Whatever the brood mare lacks she should
possess plenty of vim and nerve force. The
latter is tbe most valuable quality of all, for
the rate of speed depends more upon that
than any other attribute that can be named.
Nerve force is to the horse what steam Is to
tbe engine, and is found In a higher degree
in the thoroughbred racer than In any other
family of horses. It Is doubtless this quality
that has given the daughters of Mambrino
Patchen and American Star such promi
nence as dams of first-class trottei s. Seely’s
American Star possessed very nearly the
same combination of blood lines as tbe dam
of Lady Thorne (2.184) and her distinguished
brother, Mambrino Patchen. Seely’s Amer
ican Star, however, lacked a trotting Inheri
tance. and but very few trotters have come
from him or his decendants In the male line.
Mambrino Patchen inherited the trotting in
stinct from Mambrino Chief, and has proved
far more successful as a sire of trotters than
Seely's American Star. Breeders who have
access to stallions with a strong trotting in
heritance on both sides, particularly such as
are descendants of Rysdyk’s Uambletonlan,
need have no hesitancy in buying a mare for
brood purposes whose second or third dam Is
a descendant of the thoroughbred race horses

Bailey Praying Band
The Bailey Praying Band Is holding meet
ings with the Congregational and Methodist
churches In Alfred. A remarkable revival
is in progress. The churches and the entire
community are manifesting a deep inter
in the meetings. Already there have been a
great many conversions and from present
Indications there seems no doubt that there
will be many more added to the number.
The pastors of both churches are rendering
very efficient aid to the band and by their
earnestness and devotion have assured a
complete union of the churches In this great
revival. C. M. Bailey, Esq., the leader of
tbe band, was present last Sabbath and con
ducted tbe services and during tbe entire
day there was evidence that all who attended
the services were interested. Mr. Allen of
the band gave a very interesting discourse
on the subject of •‘Miracles’’ last Sunday
and Mr, trank H. Jones added greatly to
the interest of the meetings by remarks and
also by singing several solos which had a
very stirring effect on the audiences. •
Mr. Powderly Defines the Conditions
Necessary to Hlo Re-election.
Struggles Among the Knights for tho
Various Official Positions.
Cardinal Slmlonl on tho Attitudo of
the Catholic Church.
Ijtdiaxapolis, Nov. 19.—Yesterday was
a day of rest to the delegates to the General
Assembly here, with the exception of those
who are on the various committees. All day
long the corridors of the Grand Hotel were
filled with delegates who were talking over
the work of the convention and quietly can
vassing the situation. The question whicn
caused the most discussion is as to wheth
er or not Grand Master Workman Powderly
would accept another term. Mr. Powderly
said last night to a correspondent. In answer
to the direct question as to whether or not
he would serve another term: “I will un
der certain conditions. Those conditions
are that the Barry element shall have noth
ing to do with the administration of the af
fairs of the order, and that I shall he given
as colleagues in the general cilices men who
are thoroughly In sympathy with me. On
these conditions, and on no others, will 1
consent to take another term. I came here
completely tired out with the turmoil and
bickerings which have been going on (or the
past year, and under no circumstances will I
consent to undergo another season ot them.”
As a matter of fact, it has become evident
that Mr. Powderly is about the only man in
the General Assembly who can properly fill
the office, and even the men who have been
opposed to hint acknowledge the fact.
The main fight of the session, so far as the
offices are concerned. Is on the general 3ec
retary-treasurership. Mr. Powderly wants
John W. Hayes in case the offices are con
Miiiuaw, uiu me ciiaiH.es are uiui tie win
Est him, but Fred Turner and Robert D.
ayton intend to make a hard fight. It may
be that in order to avoid this tight the offices
will be kept separate, in which case ilayes
will get the secretaryship and either Turner
or Layton the treasurersbip. The friends ol
James H. Magee of the street car men are
making an active canvass for him for the
general executive board. He has the pres
tige of never having lost a strike, and is re
garded all around as an exceedingly smart,
level beaded little fellow. In addition to all
that be is thoroughly in sympathy with Mr.
Powderly. E. L. Jordan, of the Washington
plate printers, is another of the young men
In the General Assembly who is spoxen of
for a place on the general executive board.
He is agood man. The third man will prob
ably be a Southern man, possibly Nicholas
ti. Stack, the State master workman of the
Alabama State assembly.
The present members of the board, T. B.
McGuire, Ira B. Ayslworth and W. H. Bai
ley, will all be candidates for re-election,
but the impression prevails that new men
should be selected. There will be no oppo
sition to the re election of Uncle Richard
Griffiths as general worthy foreman, and
Mrs. Leonora Barry as general investigator
of woman's work.
Tho Knlgnts and the Vatican.
New York, Not. 19.- -The Catholic News
publishes Cardinal Slmionl’s reply to Cardi
nal Globons In regard to the Knights of La
bor. It says so far as at present appears,
the association of the Knights of Labor can
for the moment be tolerated. The Sacred
Congregation merely requires that necessary
modifications be introduced in the rules of
the society to make clear whatever J might
seem obseure and might be interpreted in a
bad sense. These modifications are required
particularly In the passages of the preface to
the rules concerning local associations and
words savoring of socialism and communism
must be corrected in such a way that they
shall only affirm the rights conferred by God
on man of acquiring property by using legit
imate means and respecting the proportion
ate right of ail others.

Not Sectarian Instruction.
Janesville, WIs., Nov. 19.—The case in
which suit was brought by Catholic taxpay
ers to prevent the reading of King James's
version of the Bible in the public schools,
was decided today. Judge Burnett held that
such reading was not sectarian instruction,
the children of the petitioners not being
obliged to listen if they did not so desire,
and the Bible having been decided upon by
the authorities as one of the text books for
Wisconsin schools. There was nothing, how
ever, to prevent the children from reading
the version of the Bible accepted by the
Catholic church, if they preferred.

Charles D. Jameson Camp, No. 6, Brad
ford, Capt. William W. Noble, has been mus
tered, with 14 charter members, by Lieuten
ant Colonel Fred E. Pottle.
It is with deep sorrow that announcement
is made of the death of First Sergeant Fred
H. Moody, Camp No. 14, South China, sod
division aid-de-camp, which occurred at a
recent date. Brother Moody was mustered
Sept. 4, 1880, and from that time until his

As a tribute of respect to his memory the
charter of the division will be draped and
the division officers will wear the usual
badges of mourning for thirty days.
The following aids-de-camp are appointed:
Emery C. Gilson, Camp No. 21, Machlas.

respected accordingly.
The attention of our lady friends is called
to the advertisement of the lectures given by
Mrs. Maria Upham Drake, under the aus
pices of the Womens Christian Temperance
Union, at the Second Parish c hurch. Mrs.
Drake Is a lady of great culture, and has
given much study to the topics, which are
placed under the general one of hereditary.
In other cities where the course has been
given Mrs. Drake has been met by large and
appreciative audiences. Tbe organizaticn
which she is thus endeavoring to p'ace be
fore tbe ladies of Portland in so interesting
a manner through one of their numerous de
partments of work, should receive the en
couragement of a large attendance at these
lectures. The society earnestly recommends
the lectures to all women, as of the greatest
Importance. The valuable Ideas which Mrs.
Drake suggests, must, to many minds, be
“seed thoughts” which will develop acareful
personal study of the topics, and the sug
gestions in the love of right thinking and
right living will tend towards a more ear
nest and careful attention to the physical
and moral laws of life.
