SLEE'PS BY HIS FATHERS, The Sod of Ireland Grows Over the Mortal Remains of Par. nell. Stormy and Turbulent the Day as thliast Months of His Life. .p Vitness the Pro at DunLIn, Oct. 11.-The remains of Charles Stewart Parnell arrived at Kingston this morning. After leaving London there were no demonstrations along the railway route. Deputations from Liverpool, Manchester, Preston, Newcastle-on-Tyne and other places joined the train. Mr. Parnell's col!eagues in parliament extended greetings to the various deputations. The funeral train reaohed Holyhead about two o'clock. It was a typical British October morning, dark, dismal, wet, cold, hazy. Notwith standing the unfavorable surroundings, eager groups of people had collected on the qunv to watch the transference of the coffin from the train to the mail boat. The case in which the coffin had been placed was borne upon the shoulders of seamen to the steamer. The Parnellites followed next behind. Bobs were distiotly audible as the procession filed down the double gangway to the ship. The coffin was deposited in an inclosure spe cinlly fitted up,for its reception, and here faithful followers of the dead chief kept watch throughout the voyage across the channel, relieving one another at regularly stated intervals. Amongst those who kept guard were the lord mayor of Dublin, High Sheriff Meade and Mr. Parnell, brother of the deceased. The journey across was eventless, the boat making the passage in a gale of wind and through tor rents of rain. At Kingstown a crowd had collected to re ceive the remains on Irish soil. Conspicu ons among those present were followers of Mr. Parnell, Richard Power, Dr. Joseph E. Kenny, J. Lawrence Carel, James J. Dal ton, T. lochefort Maguire, John C. Clancy, Wm. J. Corbet, Col. John P. Nolan, Pat rick O'Brien. These, with members of the house of commons, who followed the body from London, and the Kingstown delega tion, comprised nearly all the parliamentary adherents of Mr. Par nell. All gathered around the coffin in absolute silence, which was un broken even be the exchange of friendly greetings until after the transference of the body into the railway carriage. The short distance was soon made, the train arriving at Dublin station at 7:80, A vast but silent crowd, with uncovered heads, awaited the train as it rolled into the station. Timothy Harrington, member of parliament for Dublin harbor, and Dr. Hackett, who attended Parnell when his eyes were injured in Kilkenny, as well as other notables, here joined the swelling funeral procession. Conspicuous in front of the dense mass of people were members of the Gallic Athletic association, with the hurlers used in their sports, all draped with black crape caught up with green ribbon. Representatives of different branches of the league wore black badges, upon which were printed the dying words of the statesman, "Give my love to my colleagues and the Irish nation." On being removed from the train the colffin was lifted into a hearse. Floral tributes literally covered the top of the hearse and were piled around the coffin. These, after they had been put aside, were eagerly seized upon by the crowd, broken into small pieces and kent as mementoes of the sad occasion. As the hearse moved from the station a body of police formedin front of the procession. The band of the Workingmen's union followed directly be hind the police escort and played the Dead March in Saul. Then came the Gallic Ath letic association with hurlers reversed, re seambling a military body at reversed arms, As the march progressed the crowd grew denser. The city hall was soon reached. Its front was covered with solemn draperies. A violent rain storm streamed down as the coffin was borne into the hall. At 10 o'clock the gates were opened, and instantly people poured into the hall. The body lay in state in.the council chamber. Photographs were taken before the public was admitted. The coffin was placed at the base of O'Connell statue, and on either side, in bold relief, are statues of Grattin and Lucas. Conspicuous on the coffin were three wreaths, from Mrs. Parnell, a cross, asn anchor and a circle, with the inscriptions, "My own true love; best and truest friend, my husband; from his broken-hearted wife." Inside this in scription was the following: "My dear love, my husband, from his heart-broken wife," and still within this was, "My dear love, my husband. my king; from his heart broken wife." There were also two. lovely little wreaths from Mrs. Parnell's two daughters, with the words, "From little Clare and little Fittie; to our dear mother's husband." From 10 o'clock to two in the afternoon a continuous stream of people poured into the hall. It is estimated that 40,000 people paid their respects to the illustrious dead. Nearly all were in deep mourning. Moen wore black crape interwoven with green ribbon around the arm. Despite the drenching rain a large proportion of the mourners were women. At 2:45 the procession started, led by the executive of the leadership committee. Following came the bier, drawn by six coal black horses, surrounded by the par liamentary colleagues of Mr.. Parnell. As the coffin passed, almost hidden in flowers, every head in the vast alssemblago was un covered. Mr. Parnell's favorite horses followed the bier. Then came a strong body of Clan-na-Gael, headed by James Stepihens and John O'Leary. Prominent among individual members s. the procession was John O'Con nor. leadins' the arm the blind member, MocDonald. '1 hen came carriages contain ing Mrs. Dickinson, sister of Parnell; Par nell's brother and sister, and other near friends. The lord mayor in state, preceded by the city marshal and sword and mace bearers was next behind the family car riages. 'Then followed representatives of the corporations of the principal Irish towns, various trade societies, foresters, home-rulers, private carriages, and citizens on foot. Just as the procession started the rain ceased. The scene was most impres sive. All the windows and housetors along the line of march were packed with people. The procession surpassed in point of numbers anything of the kind ever wit nessed in Dublin. Throughout the long route admirable order was kept till the cor tege came near Gslasnevin. People began gathering in the cemetery early in the morning, facing wind and drenching showers. During the long wait ing throughout the day crowd on crowd in spected the turf-lined tomb, guarded by a single group of police, who had is difficult task to keep them moving. The grave, which was some seven feet deep. had been emt out os an artificialo mond covering the plot which had long been used to inter the poorest people. By four o'clock the police beeame overwhelmed by the ever-lnoreas ing crowd and by the withdrawal of a por tion of their force, who went to clear the way for the funeral at the entrance gates to the cemetery. When the Airt part of the procession reached the lower gate at Ave o'clock it was found impossible to pene trate the dense masses.' In a struggle with onlookers the police were obliged to aban don the attempt to drive them back. The surging crowd around the gate seeking to see the cortege met a great contending wave of others trying to see. A sceneb of great confusion ensued, the procession for a time was checked and thrown into disarray. It was decided to close the lower gates, and this was effected amidst great disorder, just as the hearse reached the spot., The hearse was then taken to a platform specially constructed for the purpose in order to enable those in the procession to tile around and haves full view of the bier. At six o'clock fast fall ing dusk found the procession still filing past. There seemed no likelihood that the stream of marchers would end till far into the night, so orders were given to remove the cofn to the side of the grave. The body of Cloan-na-gaelsa oceeded in clearing the way to the grave and formed a circle within which were grouped the lord mayor of Dublin, civic dignitaries, Parnell's colleagues in parliament, and relatives. The crush was terrible. Darkness had set in. The noise of shrieking women, the cries of children and the cries of men, struggling amid the crush, made inaudible the voices of the clergy reciting the ritual e! the Church of England. The first por tion of tie service had ,been cele brated at St, Nicholas church, where the remains tested . twenty minutes while on the way from the city hall. At the grave, Rev. Mr. Vincent, of Rotunda chapel, and Rev. George Fry, of Manchester, officiated. They were obliged to cut the services short as the crowd broke into the protecting circle and was over whelming the inner group. Some time after, in dead darkness, when the crowd had thinned away, the pore intimate friends again grouped themselves pround the grave, deposited wreathe thereon and took a last view of the coffin. The grave became heaped up with masseb of floral tributes, one of which was Miss O'Shea's, overlooked in the description given above. Apart from the disorder at the cemetery the day was without incident. Probably never anywhere was so great a popular demonstration attended by so little excite ment. The most of the public houses re mained closed throughout the day, out of respect to the dead. The police, unfailingly obtrusive in Irish public gatherings, were conspicuously absent. To-night, Sunday quietness prevails. League Manifesto. LONDON, Oct. 11.-The National league of Great Britain has issued a lengthy mani festo detailing what the league has done for the cause of Ireland, reo .ing the result of Parnell's leadership, at i urging that the fight for principles advocated by the deceased leader be kept up. May Meet for Serious Business. BERLIN, Oct. 11.-It is reported that Gen. Count Waldersee, at a recent banquet of officers of the Ninth army corps, said: "Possibly we shall meet in the spring for serious business." A SLUGGING MATCH. Indulged in by Pat Klllen and Bob Ferguson. CHI.AGo, Oct. 11.-Eight ears filled with Sabbath-breakers made a journey on the .Wisconsin Central tb a convenient spot and there indulged in a prize fight this morning. The principals were Pat Killen, of St Paul, and Bob Ferguson, of Chicago, the former weighing 195, the latter 198 pounds. Both were in the pink of condi tion and the fight, while it lasted, was for blood. Stakes were driven in the turf and ropes stretched at daybreak. Marquis of Queensbury rules governed, and the gloves used were frail affairs. Time was called about 8 o'clock and the men proceeded to do battle. Killen, after sparring a couple of minutes, landed hear ily on Ferguson's short ribs. The latter returned the compliment with a terrific punch on Killen's nose, and thus the fight ing continued until the end of the sixth round, when Killen, with several upper cuts and a straight right-hander, finished his man. A feature of the fight was the con tinuous fouling by Killon, who seemed de termined to do his man by fair means or foul. His tactics were butting, choking, and elbow work. Ferguson, seeing what his man up to, commenced delivering se vere body blows whenever the menolinched, but as both men persisted in this unfair work, the referee permitted the fight to go on. It may be characterized as a slugging match, with Killen the.most scientific and Ferguson the hardest hitter. Killen won the heavy-weight championship of the northwest, the $1,000 purse, and three quarters of the gate receipts. LEFT RATHER HURRIEDLY. And Behind Were Debts Aggregating a Half Million. SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Oct. 11.-A. Salvador Maloe, one of the chief promoters of the great Tehuantepec railroad project, in the southern part of Mexico, passed through this city yesterday on his way to New York, from which city he will proceed directly to London, where he will hold a conference with the English capitalists who are asso. ciated with him in the enterprise. At the present time the company is decidedly in an embarrassing condition financially, and it will be some time before plans for completing the work can be carried out. Mr. Malo left the City of Mexico very sud denly and under somewhat of a cloud on last Monday, it being alleged that he left behind an indebtedness of $500,000 which he contracted individually and as represen tative of the railroad company. One of the heaviest claims against him is that of Gee Shoon and Wee Puck, Chinese contractors, which is for $8001000. Mr. Walo stated to-day that with a view of raising the neces sary cash capital to liquidate this indebted ness, he makes his hurried visit to London. Captured the Ciowboy. GaEAT FALLs, Oct. 1l.-Speooial.]-David Spencer, the cowboy who, on the 25th ult., shot SleepyJim Osborne, has been captured and is now safely lodged in the Chotcau county jail. He was seen near the Canadian line and was captured without any diill culty. Spencer was captured by Deputy Moody, of Dawson county, at a ranch in the vicinity of Malta, from which point he was conveyed to Glasgow, where Crawford took charge of him. On being arrested Spencer made no resistance. It is quite singular that although two weeks had elapsed from the time of the shooting until the capture, Spencer had hardly gotten a hundred miles from the town where the shooting occurred. The victim of his mark manship is still alive. A Promiaent Engineer. CHIcAGoo, Oct. 11.-A. It. Carver, aged 45 years, a prominent member of the Brother hood of Locomotive Engineers, died here this morning of pneumonia. He was the lirst second grand chief of the irotherhood. The lRichaiond convention selected him to settle the famous IBurlington strike after Arthur, Hlodge and others had failed, arnd he performed the task in four dave, lie was at that tims employed by the Houtihern Paclfic at Oakland, but afterwards moved to Chicago and became connected with a railway supply house. After the settlemelnt of the Burlington strike he was promi nently mentioned as Chief Arthur's suo ceuor, but positively declined that honor, EULOGIlOE BY AN EDITOR, Watterson's Oration at the Banquet of the Army of the Tennessee. Held on the Evening After the Un veiling of the Grant Statue. Rls Toast Was, "The War Is Over-Let Us Have Peace"-Tribute to Grant. CnroApo, Oct. 11.--The meeting of the Society of the Army of the Tennessee closed Thursday night with a splendid ban quet at the Palmer house, which was largely attended by many notable gentle men. Among them were several members of the society, but who were present to w tness the unveiling of the equestrian statue of Gen. Grant in Lincoln Park. To Mr. Henry Watterson was assigned the toast, "The War Is Over-Let Us Have Peace." The noted editor was received with great applause as he rose to speak. He spoke substantially as follows: "I believe that, at this moment, the peo* ple of the United States are nearer together, in all that constitutes kindred feeling and interest, than they have been at any time since the adoption cf the federal constitu tion. If it were not so I should hardly ven ture to come here and talk to you as I am going to talk to-night. As it is, surrounded though I be by union soldiers, my bridges burned and every avenue of escape cut off, I am not in the least discouraged or alarmed. On the contrary, I never felt safer, or happier, or more at home. In deed, I think that, supported by your pres ence and sustained by these commissary stores, I could stand a siege of several months and hold out against incredible odds. It is wonderful how circumstances alter cases, for it was not always so. "I am one of many witnesses who live to tell the story of a journey to the moon and back! It may not be that I have any mar vels of personal adventure or any prodigies of individual valor to relate; but I do not owe my survival to the precaution taken by a me Inber of the confederate battery com man led by the brave Captain Howells of Georgia. It was the habit of this person to go to the rear whenever the battery got well under fire. At last Captain Howells called him up and admonished him that, if the breach of duty was repeated, he would shoot him down as he went, without a word. The reply came on the instant: "That's all right, cap'n; that's all right; you can shoot me, but I'll be dadburned if I'm go ing tp let those Yankees do it!" I st least gavysa the opportunity ttytry,ýand I am as.uhyour debtor that, in my case your markmanship was so defective. "You have been told that the war is over. I think that I, myself, have heard that ob servation. I am glad of it. Roses smell sweeter than gunpowder-for everyday uses; the carving-knife is preferable to the bayonet, or the sabre, and, in a contest for first choice between cannon-balls and wine corks, I have a decided prejudice in favor of the latter! "TheO war s1 over; and is wen over. uou reigns and the government at Washington still lives. I am glad of that. I can con ceive of nothing worse for ourselves, noth ing worse for our children, than what might have been if the war had ended oth erwise, leaving two exhausted combatants to become the prey of foreign intervention and diplomacy, setting the clock of civili zation back a century and splitting the noblest of the continents into five or six weak and warring republics, like those of South America, to repeat in the New World the mistakes of the old. "The war is over, truly: and, let me re peat, it is well over. If anything was want ing to proclaim its termination from every housetop and doorpost in the land, that lit tle brush we had last spring with Sig. Maca roni furnished it. As to the touch of an electric bell, the whole people rallied to the brave words of the secretary of state, and, for the moment, sections and parties sunk out of sight and thought in one overmas tering sentiment of racehood, manhood and nationality. "I shall not stop to inquiro whether the war made us better than we were. It cer tainly made us better acquainted, and, on the whole, it seems to me that we are none the worse for that better acquaintance. The truth is that the trouble between us weeas never more than skin deep: and the curious thinig about it is that it was not our skin, anyhow! It was a black skin, not a white skin, that brought it about. "As I see it, our great sectional :contro versy was, from first to last, the gradual evolution of a people from darkness to light, with no charts or maps to guide them, and no experience to lead the way, "The framers of our constitution found themselves unable to fix decisively and to define accurately the exact relation of the states to the federal government. On that point they left what may be described as an 'open clause,' and through that open clause, as through an open door, the grim spectre of disunion stalked. It was attendeli on one hand by African slavery; on the other hand by sectional jealousy, and between this trio of evil spirits the household flower of peace was torn from the lintel and tossed into the flames of war. "In the beginning all of us were guilty, and equally guilty, for African slavery. It was the good fortune of the north frst to find out that slave labor was not profitable. So, very sensibly, it sold its slaves to the south, which, very disastrously, pursued the delusion. Time at last has done its perfect work; the south sees now, as the north saw before it, that the system of slavery, as it was maintained by us, was thI clumsiest and costliest labor system on earth, and that when we took the field to fight for it we set out upon a fool's errand. Under slave labor the yield of cotton never reached 5,000,000 bales. Under free labo r it has never fallen below that figure, grad 4. ally ascending to six and seven, until thi s year it is about to reach nearly 9,000,000 bales. This tells the whole story. I am not here to talk polities, of course. Bunt I put it to you whbthir that is not a pretty good showing for free black labor, and whethor, with such n showing, the southern whites can afford any other than just and kind treatment to the blacks, without whom, indeed, the south would be a brier patch, and half our national gold income a gaping hole-in-the-ground. "sentlemen, I beg that you will not be approhensive. 1 know full well that this is neither a time nor place for the abstract economies; and I am not going to aflliot you with a dissertation upon free trade or free silver. I came, primarily, to bow my head and to pay my measure of homage to the statue that was unveiled to-day. The career and the nmame which that statue com mtemorates belong to me no less than to you. When I followed him to the grave proud to appear in the obsequies, though as thie obseurest of those who bore any otfloia I iart therein-I felt that I was helping to ur.y ant only a great man, but a true frio nd, Fromt that day to this the story of the life and death of Glen. Grant has more and more impressed and touched me. "1 never allowed myself to make his ae quaintan.t until he had quitted the white house. The period of his political activity was full of uncouotl and unsparing partisan contention. It was a kind of civil war. I had my duty to do, and I did not dare trust myself to the subduing influence of what I was sure must follow friendly relations be tween such a man as hewas and such a man as I knew myself to be. In this I was not mistaken, as the sequel proved. I met him for the first time bsexeath my own vine and fig tree, and a happy series of accidents thereafter gave me the opportunity to meet him often and to know him well. He was the embodiment of simplocity, integrity and courage; every inch a general, a soldier and a man; 4ut in the clroumstances of his last illness, a figure of heroic proportions for the contemplation of the ages. I recall nothing in history as sublime as the spec tacle of that brave spirit broken in fortune and in health, with the dread haid of the dark angel clutched about his throat, stfig gling with every breadth to hold the clumsy, unfamiliar weapon with which he sought to wrest from the ,tws of death a little some thing for the support of wife and children when he was gonselt If he had done nothing else, that would have made his exit from the world an immortal epicl "A little while after I came home from the last scene of all, I found that a wo man's haind hadcollected the insignia I had worn in the magnificent, melancholy page ant-the orders assigning me to duty, and the funeral scarfs and badges-and had grouped and framed them; unbidden, si lently, tenderly; and when I reflected that the hands that did this were those of it lov ing southern woman, whose father had fal len on the confederate side in the battle. I said: 'The war indeed is over; let us have peace!' Gentlemen, soldiers, comrades, the silken folds that twine about us here, for all their soft and careless grace. are yet as strong as hooks of steel! They hold to tether a anited people and a great nation; for, realizing the truth at last-with no wounds to be healed and no stings of de feat to remember-the south says to the north, as simply and truly as was said 3,000 years ago in that far away meadow npoz the margin of the mystic sea: 'Whither thou goest, I will go; and whither thou lodgest, I will lodge; thou people shall be my people, and thy God my God."' CHANGING BRANDS. The Stock Growers Journal Says the Ohey enne Indians Are Itustlers. As the stock association has been re lieved of the necessity of keeping two in spectors at the stock yards in Chicago, the attention of the board of stock commis sioners is called to the condition of things at the Cheyenne agency. The Indians there are rustlers, and have for some time been increasing their horse herds by driv ina into their bunches horses and colts be longing to settlers in the im mediate vicinity of the reservation. Horses with altered brands are among their bunches and a very noticeable thing is the fact that many Indian pony mares have large American colts tailing them, the colts being much larger than the mares. These matters indicate that some thing is wrong. Last week we called at tention to the fact that Captain Neate had recoverect from a bunch of Cheyenne horses, a mare whose brand, "6," had been changed by the addition of two lines, into an ante lope head, which is the Cheyenne. tribal brand. The use of this general brand makes it difficult, of course, to find the in dividual Indians who make these levies upon the horses of settlers in that 1ieinity. It no doubt will make: ited4t~ apparent'o the board of stock commia sioners that as the horkemen and settlers have to pay a tax for tax inspection and in demnity, some measure of protection should be granted to horse owners. At this time the endeavor of the inspectors is directed to a protection of the cattlemen who only pay their proportion of the tax as do the horsemen. It is the duty of the board to have an inspector stationed at the Cheyenne agency, for a time at least, so as to get out of the Indian horse bunches animals that do not belong there, and to instill into the Indians a fear of punishment from the fact that their operations in rustling horses are being watched by a legally authorized officer of the law. The settlers who pay corded them. STILL UNFOUND. The Searchers at Work, but Find no Traces of McPhee. The mystery of John McPhee's disap pearance deepens day by day. Men famil iar with the country near Elliston have searched the hills in that vicinity since it first became known that he was lost, but have learned nothing that gives the slight est clue. Over sixty men are engaged in the search for McPhee, and every bit of ground is being covered. , One theory is that he may have fallen into some deep prospect hole partly filled with water. The search will be kept up until the scope of country lying within a large radius of the Grand Republic mine has been carefully examined in every spot. Mlonument to Departed Elks. ST. Lou.s, Oct. 11.-A monument in Bel fontain cemetery, to mark the last resting place of members of the St. Louis Elks' lodge, was dedicated today with impressive ceremonies. The knonument is the gift of Col. John A. Cockerill, of the New York Advertiser, and represents a beautiful elk. Delegations from Chicago, Cincinnati, Kan sas City Hot Springs, Dallas, Tex., Brook lyn, N. Y., Reading, Pa., Birmingham, Ala., New Orleans, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Rockford, Springfield and a number of other cities were present. Gilmore's band furnished the music. After an address by Col. Cookerill the monument was accepted by Exalted Ruler Joy, of St. Louis lodge, in a neat speech., After unveiling the statue all joined in singing "Auld Lang Syne." and the ceremonies closed with the benediction. Koptenal Surveys. General Geo. O. Eaton, surveyor general for Montana, returned yesterday from the west. He has been in the Kootoenai country on a tour of inspection to determine the advisability with the funds on hand, of establishing a standard meridan in that district. Settlers have asked for surveys and have subscribed the nenessary money but without a standard meridan the work is impossible. The cost of the survey for the establishment of the nmeridan would not be less than $4,000 or $5,000 at the expense of the Montana appropriation. General Eaton will determine soon what course will be adopted. A largeo Sunk. SAULT SmT MAmna, Mich., Oct. 11.-The steam barge Susan Peck and the schooner George W. Adams collided while vaissing through St. George flats, near a buoy and the barge was sunk. All the crew were saved. The schooner Adams was consider ably injured. The Peck was valued at $1ti,000. The steamer lies across the canal, comepltly blocking It, and navigation will be impeded several days, A Total Wreck. DEL.AWAR.ev BUlaAwATran, Del., Oct. 11. U. S. S. .

I The President Openly Angling for the Support of the Hawkeye Politician. Likewise He Is Striving Hard t Capture Blaine's Partisans and Strongholds. Selfish Policy Alone Will Control the Ap polntments to Be Made to the Cab fent Vacanoies. Wkasnmolroir, Oat. 11.-Chairman Clark. son, of the republican national committee, is here to talk with the president and other members of the administration, and also with SJenator Quay and Col. Dudley about the next national convention. Clarkson, Quay and Dudley want the convention held in May, and would probably prefer Chi cago. The oresident is said to have no ob jection to Chicago, but to prefer Washing ton, and a later month than May. However, he is more concerned about the candidate than the convention. He is doing everything in his power to win support from all quarters, taking advantage of Blaine's inactivity to try to capture his friends. The president, is continuing with Clarkson the work he b.s gan at Cape May. As soon as he heard that Clarkeon had arrived, he invited him and Mrs. Clarkson to dine at the White house. After an agreeable dinner the president and Clarkson had a comfortable talk. Clarkson's position seems to be that if Blaine cannot be the candidate he might support Harrison. He would accept a cabi net portfolio under a new administration. whether Blaine or Harrison was at the head of it. It is believed now that from this time un til the meeting of the convention the preai dent will devote himself assiduously to strengthening himself in those localities where Blaine has the strongest hold upon the people, believing that it he can get sup port from one or more of the Blaine strongholds everything else will fall natur ally his way. He had a little experience of this sort at the last national convention. When the California delegation voted for him the rest all came tumbling. The two cabinet appointments that the president will soon have will be used to strengthen him. These and other appoint ments will be dealt out on the Pacific coast and New England to advantage. Circum stances may arise which will make the ,president want Mr. Miller to remain in the cabinet, and of course if he should the at torney general would conform himse.i to the president's interests. But the present expectation of both the president and Miller are that the latter will. ritisq f " the cabinet 'o go on the bench." I is believed then that a California man, prob-. ably Estee, and Gov. Cheney, of New Hampshire, will be appointed to the cabi net vacancies. It is urged by Senator Chandler that the appointment of Cheney would greatly assist him in his work for the president in New England, and that Seore tary Proctor is of the same opinion. If the president can secure the California delega tion in return for a cabinet position it will be regarded by his friends as a very good trade. Wanamaker, who was somewhat put out at having to exert himself to prevent Quay's convention from nominating Blaine and to get it to indorse Harrison, is working hard to convert the senator to the president's cause. Whether he will succeed or not re mains to be seen, but it is doubtful. Report on West Point. WASHINGTON, Oct. 11.-The secretary of war has received the report of the board of visitors to West Point Military academy. It is a lengthy document, and treats sub-.. jects discussed in a novel and striking manner.
