AFFAIRS IN THE EAST.
A Discouraging View of the Situation.
London, April 20.—The London news
papers this luoruiug take a discouraging
view of the course of political negotiations.
It is plain to see in Austria’s changing at
titude a desire to wait in hopeful silence to
see what it may profit in the calamities and
weaknesses of combinations. The Dally
News says It is time to give up the allusion
respecting Austria’s effective interference in
the present strife. Her government lias
long ago made military preparations on the
bordeis of Bosnia and Heiz goviua in antici
pation of war between Eug'aud and Russia,
and will watch its development, get what it
can, and congratulate itself upon doing so
without fighting. It will be glad if we help
its designs, but will owe us no thanks. Tbe
Vienna correspondent of the Daily News
says, in confirmation of the foregoing utter
ances, that, notwirbstandiug tbe various de
nials,it is maintained that Austrian-Russian
negotiations at St. Petersbnrg are proceeding
favorably, gud that the chief objections of
Austria against the peace of San Stefano
have met with due consideration.
England’s Position.
New York. April 26.—A special London
dispatch says there is high authority for
staling that the reasons for Biitish rejection
of the scheme for the simultaneous with
drawal of tbe troops and fleet from before
Constantinople are that such an arrange
ment would necessitate a military conven
tion or separate diplomatic instrument. Tbe
English acceptance of the scheme would be
a practical admission of the correctness of
the limits assigned by Russia to New Bulga
ria, or a British sanction of tbe uli possidetis
principle.
Russia's Credit Shaken.
Berlin, April 26.—A number of German
bankers who were induced to meet here to
consider tbe practicability of floating anoth
er Russian loan have unanimously refused
to engage in the work.
The Privateer Scheme.
New York, April 26.—The Russian Con
sul here knows nothing of tbe purchase by
tbe Russian government of American vessels
sor privateering in case of war with England.
Consul Bodiesco states that be had received
trustworthy information that merchants in
several cities in Russia were holding public
meetings, under the auspices of the central
committee, and were subscribing liberally to
a fund to be used for tbe fitting out of cruis
ers in case of a declaration of war. It is
stated by a gentleman well acquainted in
shipping circles that Russian agents have
been in this city lately, and wailed upon
Messrs. Alexandre, owners of Ibe Havana
line, in regaid to a purchase of their vessels,
Alexandre stated, in reply to these rumors,
that a person bad called upon him lately,
and bad obtained prices for which tbe
steamers of the line might be purchased. He
could not say upon what authority tbe per
son called, nor were any negotiations look
ing toward a purchase now pending. It is
also stated that negotiations are now pend
ing for tbe purchase of Garrison’s Savannah
line of iron steamships. Two of these ves
sels are already completed and the two others
nearly finished.
The Compromise—Won't Go to Church-
Thanks.
London, April 27.—[Morning].- A dis
patch from Vienna says that negotiations
for a compromise have beeu temporarily sus
pended, owing to Russia having rejected
certain proposals as being too favorable for
Euglaud.
A di.-patch from Constantinople says the
Russians have abandoned their proposed
visit to the city on Sunday.
Q teen Victoria, in au address, thanks the
reserves for promptly obeying the call for
enrollment for active service.
The India Expeditionary Force.
London, April 27— [MornineJ —The India
expeditionary force will embaik for Bombay
on M inday or Wednesday next. A dispatch
leceived from India states that there is great
enthusiasm displayed among tbe natives,
who are volunteering in great numbers.
A Mo l Brutal Murder.
New York, April 26.—A parly of men
whib dredging just inside the breakwater of
Erie basin, Brooklyn, brought to the surface
this morning the body of a man who bad
evidently been the victim of foul play. That
he bad beeu murdered iu a most brutal man
ner was evident to tho,e who saw the re
mains as they were raised on rhe dock. The
man who brought the body to the surface
were not aware of what they had at first
grappled, as it was so heavy. The great
weight was explained as soon as tbe body
bad beeu exposed to view, for there were
150 pounds of chain and iron balls attached
to it. Ou further examination it was
discovered that there was a gag in tbe mouth
of tbe victim, formed of a thick rope, which
was sufficient to have prevented him when
alive from making any outcry. It was also
found tbalbis skull was mashed in, as if by
a blow from a club or some other heavy
weapon. It is thought tbe body is that of
Bernard Feron, who was quite well known
in that section of tbe ciiv, and wbo bas
been missing from bis home since tbe 18tb
of March. Feron was 55 years of age, was
a married man, and was known as a river
speculator, a business which naturally
brought him in contact wilh tbe worst
characters of tbe city. He was in tbe habit
of carrying considerable money about him,
and this fact was known to those whom be
was in the habit of meeting in South Brook
lyn barrooms. Tbe police are working up
the case.
Reform is Necessary.
Washington, April 26.—Information has
been received by the House committee on
naval affairs that a pleasure yacht is being
built in the Boston navy yard, under tbe
supervision of Constructor Fernald, for the
civil engineer, Mr. White. It is stated that
she la being built without tbe knowledge of
the commander or any of tbe officers of tbe
yard, in a wooden building in tbe anchor
paik. It is also stated that tbe watchmen
of tbe yard are suspended ten days each
month, in order to meet the expenses of ibis
work. Twelve or fifteen thousand dollars
of government mo iey is being pul into this
yacht, according to the information furnished
to the committee.
For Ils Own Prolecilou.
Trenton, N. J., April 26.—Late yesterday
afieruooti tbe Rahway Ravings Bank made
an application to tbe Chancellor for an
order to carry on their business under his
supervision and control, as provided for
under the rrceut law upon the subject. Five
of the depositors have brought suits upon
their deposit books, and as ibe managers
thought that paying the depositors In cash
would be an luvitaUon forolhersio sue they
have applied to the Chancellor for bls pro
tection lu order to enjuiu these suits. An
injunction was issued last evening as prayed
for, and a special master was appointed lo
examine iuto the condition of the institu
tion and report tbe result to the court as
early as possible.
A First-Class Fraud.
New York, April 26 —B. W. Hitchcock,
wbo got up the scandalous “Congress of
Beauty’’ here some mouths ago, and fled to
Montreal when tbe poor girls who went Into
too show triad to get tbelr pay, has been
sellii.giols ou Long Island for the past two
years ai-qulte cheap rates, and a largo num
ber of mechanics have bought them and
built bouses ibereoo. All of tbe lots are
v>w found to be heavily mortgaged. Hitch
cock no not be found by tbe officers of the
law.
PEDESTRIANIBM.
Hughes Still Walking — A Hopeless but
Plucky Effort.
New York, April 26. —The attempt of
John Hughes, the Irish athlete, to beat
O'Leary’s unprecedented feat of walking
520 miles 440 yards at Central Park Gardens,
is creating considerable interest, and over
1000 persons were present this evening. Al
tbought it was a foregone conclusion that he
could not beat O'Leary’s time, many praised
him for tbe indomitable pluck be displayed
In fighting the scythe bearer under tbe dif
ficulties with which he bad to contend. Tbe
conditions of tbe match were the same that
governed tbe recent great tournament iu
Loudon, and tbe articles stipulated that no
attendants should accompany him. Hughes
bad attendants all through tbe week, which
broke the conditions of tbe match. It is the
opinion of rood judges that if tbe conditions
of tbe match bad been strictly carried out
that Hughes would have broken down at 200
miles. The attendants and constant coach
ing, together with numerous vapor baths,
combined with pedestrian pluck and endu
rance, helped him to hopelessly struggle
to complete a task that uo*man in the
world can accomplish. Hughes, who
started at 8:22 last Sunday night,
this afternoon bad been walking 115 hours
and had only covered 349 miles. During
tbe afternoon he suffered terribly from
pains in racked joints and from his toe
uails. At 5 o’clock be bad covered 354
miles. He was then limping from the pain
of bis little toe on bis right foot. He con
tinued to walk on, resting at intervals, up
to 5:45, when be rested for supper. He
rested 2 hours, 54 minutes, 20 seconds. He
came on tbe track at 8:39. At this time
120 hours of the walk bad ex
pired. During the 120 hours Hughes
bad covered 856 miles 341 feet. O’Leary in
120 hours at the international tournament
at London last April covered 457 miles 300
feet. Hughes during the past 24 hours up
to 8:23 covered 56J miles. At the conclu
sion of 120 hours was 101 miles 129 feet be
hind. Hughes’s time expires al 3:32 tomor
row afternoon, so as lo complete Ihe task,
from 8:22 tonight, he has to walk
164 miles iu a little over 19 hours,
which is nearly eight . miles an hour.
Hughes finished bis 360 miles at 9:21. He
bad then been walking 120 hours 50 minutes
and 28 seconds. Tbe time for bis 360tb
mile was 11 minutes and 59 seconds.
Hughes went along at a good pace. Tbe
doctor bad cut off bis toe nail and be went
over tbe dusty uneven track at a better
pace. At 10 o’clock he completed 362 miles
and was 104 miles behind time. He con
templates walking up to 2 o’clock.
Ou a Tramp.
Indianapolis, April 2.—Tbe pedestrians
Keely and Sidnam continue to hold out in
their determination to walk 200 miles in 72
hours. The at'eudance is very light, but
will probably be better when the allotted
time draws to a close. So far Sidnam is two
miles ahead, Keely having allowed him to
gain nine miles while be was resting. The
chances are about even, no odds being given
ou bets. They will finish up tomorrow
evening at 8 o’clock.
THE PRESIDENTIAL STEAL.
Fraud* Fraud, and Fraud.
New York. April 26.—A Jacksonville cor
respondent says be bas read an affidavit
from au ex-sberiff, in regard to the frauds iu
Levi county, which is tilled wilh tbe most
infamous statements. Tbe writer testifies
to frauds, and fiually says that a proposition
was made to burn tbe state bouse at Talla
hassee, and that after a consultation, in
which Governor Stearns was present, it was
decided not lo do so, the reason being that
ibe Democrats probably had certified copies
of all the returns. He says he was pa’d $lO
to assault aud whip Babcock, a Democratic
editor in Jacksonville and that be
did knock Babcock down, and then
he was put before the congressional com
mitlee aud made to tell a lively story of hav
ing been maltreated by Ku Klux, wkich be
now says was wilfully false. His affidavit
discloses the method iu which the Republic
ans* handled their roughs, bummers and
strikers in the electiou aud count, he being
one of the most conspicuous of that class,
aud having been sun outou various errands.
He confesses, what tbe Democrats then
charged, that he, iu compauy with Hodge,
the deputy marshal, was ordered to seize
and destroy tbe ballot boxes at Cedar Keys,
aud that they were prevented only by the
armed resistance of Sebring aud tbe other
Democratic custodians. Tho same special
says ibat all tbe documents of McLlu and
Dennis are now iu Washington, that Dennis
bas gone ibere, and that the case is now
transferred to that city. Affidavits are
piloted from Dennis, Cowgill, aud several
clerks, going to show that frauds were per
petrated in tbe election disiricts in Baker
county, and in Alachua, by which the state
of Florida was made to give its vote to
Hayes, but tbe statements t re a mere reitera
tion iu verbose detailsof what bas heretofore
appeared. Cowgill says be bad nothing to
do with the fraud business. Dennis says
Vance and another clerk added enough
names to make a majority of 219 for Hayes
in the Archer district, and that after adding
that number they enclosed them in the bal
lot box aud returned the box sealed.
BRECHER-TILTON.
Probable Xe-opeuiUK of the Mes..
New Yoik, April 20.—1 tis rumored that
there will be startling revelations in ihe
Beecher-Tilton case during tbe present week.
Persons wbo are in a good position to know
of what they affirm, assert that Beecher bas
determined to take tbe offensive against
Tilton, and the result will be the speedy
bringing of a suit against Tilton and Moul
ton, on a charge of conspiracy to blackmail.
A party who claims to have knowledge of
certain alleged transactions between Moul
ton and tbe Tiltons, which led to the alleged
conspiracy, is to be produced during ihe
trial of tbe suit. Tbe facts which be claims
to be in possession of have been submilled
to one of Beecher’s lawyers, aud it is at his
suggestion that Beecher has consented, if
not to begin suit at once, at least to hold a
conference with the expected witness, bis
own lawyers and a few personal friends.

occurred between 4 aud 5 o’clock this morn

Children
may be m.de healthy and strong by the use of
DR. PITCHER'S CABTORIA, a perfect substitute
for Castor Oil. It contains no morphine and is
superior to any syrup or remedy in use. The CAS
TO hIA is particularly recommended for chil
dren. It destroys worms, assimilates the food,
and allows natural sleep. Very efficacious in
Croup and for children teething. For Colds, Fe
verishness, Disorders of the Bowels and Stomach
Complaints, nothing is so effective. It Is as
pleasant to take as honey, cotta but 35 cents, and
can be bad of any Druggist.
This Is one of many lestlmouials:

by the Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and In

cost to purchasers.
While our engines are rated so low as to horse
power, they can be run economically at
DOUBLE THE SPEED AND POWERS
given in the tables, owing to their having been
balanced and tested with this object in view.
The Haskins Machino Company’s patent Verti
,cal Steam Engine is presented to the public in
confidence that it will meet a want which has
long been unfilled,—that of a COUNTERBAL
ANCED engine which shall give tha best of en
gineering results with the
LOWEST FIRBT COST
consistent with good work and the greatest eoon
omy of Fuel.
We have, so tar as possible, so constructed our
engines that the strains are met by straight lines,
—Curves being regarded by na as, when in
the direction of strains, elements of weak
ness,—and in this way we are enabled to get a
strong, compact engine iu a very small space and
make the who self-contained.
The Materials are of the Very
Best.
—Steel being freely used iu the smaller parts
The Best Box Metal only is used in tbe bearings
which are much larger and longer than is usual
among engine builders, and all proportions are
established upon a basis which will insure results
tar exceeding those promised.
Desiring to have the best valve aud valve mo
tion, and one always working lu equilibrium—
entirely WITHOUT FRICTION— we bave, af
ter much experimenting and research, decided to
use the
Patent Balance Piston Valves
of Thomas 8. Davis. The extra expense of so
doing is warranted by the good results shown by
this valve during the severe tests to which it baa
been submitted during the past ten years, and we
put it on our engines despite its cost,
WITHOUT EXTRA CHARGE.
feeling assured that a discerning public will ap
preciate our efforts to sell ONLY THE BEST, ad
reward m accordingly.
We would respectfully ask the reader to com
