of the briefest, but his party predilections do not
disable him from judging of the drift of opinion
among tho people. Ho finds tho Democrats
nearly unanimous In support of the Cincinnati
ticket. Hero and there a hide-bound old Bour
bon hopes that the Iloltlmore Convention will
nominate a third candidate; but If IIoiiace
Giiecley Is adopted by the Democrats they ex

correspondent has heen.aMonlahcd to vo the
evidences of Gitr.r.i.iY'8 strength, particularly
In the rural districts. Ho says tho Democrats
have no doubt that four-fifths of the delegates to

ticket will be beaten In tho State by from six
thousand to ten thousand votes. Tho Times of

This was a blow to Voorhces's hopes. Ho
could never expect to carry off his coveted
prize In tho faco of such a popular man as Hen
dricks. Tho samo event also caused Morton to
seriously droop. Then Morton and Voorhces
met In this city It was well known that during
the week following tho adjournment of tho On
( clnnatl Convention Voorhees called at least twice
at Morton's. Hero n scheme was laid, tho pur
portof which has leaked out. Morton, who owns
what there Is of the Grant party In Indiana,
promised to do his utmost to secure tho Guber
natorial nomination and election for Voorhees.
The Administration Is to rend out money and
attempt to control the Indiana Democratic
Staic Convention and turn It over to Voorhees,
and In the event of his nomination the Grant
fuglemen are to sell out tho Republican candi
date, Gen. Tom Ilrowne, and elect Voorhees.
In return for this great kindness, Voorhees
ynd his friends aro to sell out the Democratic
legislative candidates In a sufficient number of
districts to secure a Republican legislature,
i wh ch will return Oliver I'erry Morton to tho
United States Senate. Morton's present term
1 expires on the tth of March next.
This comes from most substantial sources,
and Is so generally credited here, from the
known honor of those who give the Information
i that It has brought Voorhees Into contompt,

A Child Attncliedbyn FnliiMiIng Son.
On Tuesday afternoon a child, 5 years old,
daughter of James Kenny, a laborer at Spuy ten Duy vel,
was playing near the Port Morris Railroad track. On
one side of the track was a swamp. While the little
child was playing a gaunt tow, followed by a litter of
sucklings, sttacked her, and endeavored to devour her.
The sow teUed the child by the wrist and dragged her
from one aide of the railroad track to the other, toward
the swamp. The child's cries attracted the attention of
the flag-manon the Hue, who arrived lust In time to
aave the lite of the little girl. The child's arm was fear
fullmangled by the teeth of the huugry beast, and her
head terribly cut through being dragged over the rails.
Dr. Parson attended the child, and tewed up the cuts In

Liberal Hpt-ccli-A Mniorllr of the Hi lo

Hkading, Mny 30. There hns been a de
cided change In the sentiment of the Conven
tion In regard to the Liberal movement slnco
last evening. There Is but ono wish expressed
by nil tho prominent men of tho party who aro
hero as delegates or lookers on, nnd that Is to
defeat Grant. Thoro Is somo dlfferenco of
opinion as to whether this can be dono only by
supporting Orecley, but all agree that It would
bo almost criminal not to sink all personal feel
ings nnd preferences In a causo so holy as this.
Thero are, It Is true, a great many men, perhaps
a majority of the narty, who dlsllko to entertain
tho Idea of supporting n mnn who Is tho very In
carnation of the principles they havo opposed
all their lives. It Is llko entering Into tho dark
valley of death In tho hope of reaching n new
land of promise beyond. It Is surely the highest
net of patriotism which any groat party has over
been asked to perform ; yet I verily bcllevo that
tho croat majority of tho honest, thinking men
who composo this Convention are ready nnd
willing to make this sacrifice
ANTTIIINO TO SAVR A 14 IMt'Elllt.t.En COl'NTnT.
Thero has entered Into the heart of every
thoughtful man tho solemn conviction that the
liberties of tho people wilt be seriously Im
perilled by four years moro of Grant's bayonet
rule. Feeling and believing this, tho mass of
the Democratlo party of Pennsylvania staid
ready to mako any honorable alllanco which vlll
preserve Intact for their posterity the liberties
to securo which their forefathers laid down
their lives. They are animated by another
motive almost ns noblo nnd commcmlaUo. Tho
Iron heel of a hateful military despotism Is upon
tho necks of millions of their fellow-countrymen

borne upon tho shoulders of their posterity for
ages to come. livery gale from the South brings
to their ears the beseochlng complaint of a

the party who talk wildly about never disband

thecump ,.f the enemy, but they can scarcely bo
called representative men. They certainly do
not represent cither the nralns or tho hearts of
the Democracy. They are either reckless, un-ri-tlectlng
men, who aro perverse by nature, aud
anxious to attract attention by loudly proclaim
Ing their devotion to principle, or else they nro
solgnoraut as to believe that their personal pop
ularity would he. endangered by speaking what
they honestly believe.
RIO.NiriUAKT ACTION OK Till CONVENTION.
Alt the actions of the Convention so far Indi
cate very clearly n willingness on the pari of tho
majority to Join in tho I.lbernl movement. The
selection of the Hon. It, II. Ilrown of Clarion
i-ount to act as temporary Chairman of the Con

man. Mr. Ilrown was n war Democrat, nnd
during the early part of tho war published n
paper In the western part of tho Slate wlilih
consistently supported tho cause of tho I'nlon.
Ho is a libvral minded man, and publishes ii

Tlio selection of Mr. Owner for permanent

who. he said, was, of all men ini-iitloii.i for
Governor, the purest, the best, and the most
liberal, Tlicspcto-h of Mr. Clymcr wa worthy
tho man, and when he uttered the following
sentiment, tho applause was loud and long con

Commonwealth, from all parts of this great country,
the cry Is going up for alt Inrraiicr irum the political

THE SIGNIFICANCE Or DUCKALEW'S NOMINATION.
Tho nomination of the Hon. C. R. Iluckalew as
the candidate of the Democracy of Pennsyl
vania for Governor la n glorious triumph nf the
honest men nf the party over all rings and cor
rupt Influences. The record of Mr. Iluckalew
while In tho United States Senate Is a bright
page In his pure and upright life. No man eve r
lelt behind him a more unblemished reputation
than he did. During an era of corruption, when
the rings were most powerful and the party tlio
strongest, ho stood up and fought uvury sus
picious measure, and Irft tho Senate a poorer
man than when he entered It. He Is cloar-hoad-rd,
thoughtful, studious, and his mind Is of tho
(jhllosophlo-tast. It would be-unprofitable for n
man of his rbaractor and disposition to bo a
bitter partisan. Ho is naturally a Liberal, and
although he may deem It Inexpedient to express
his sentiments In regard to the work of tho Cin
cinnati Convention, 1 have reason to know that
ho Is heartily In favor of thu nndorsement of
Greeley's nomination by the Nutlonal Demo
HOW THE NOMINATION WAS IIECEIVEP.
This nomination Is tho result of a determina
tion on tho part of tho Convention to present to
the people of the State the mniiHho could In
every reapect he tho opposite of Hartranft, tlio
candidate of Grant's hirelings. It reuulred tho
sacrlfico of somo ptir-sonal feeling on the part of
many men to accomplish tills, and the llrst to
lend in this uoblowork was thu Hon. Wm. A,
Wallace, who has for several years boon conslil
ercd the chief antagonist of Mr. Iluckalow.
When the Democratlo politicians of Pi'imsilvn
nia can bo Induced to rise out of tho depths of
personal spltu and enmity there Is Indeed reason
to hope for still moro magnnnlinous action,
I There can he no doubt ns to tho loccntlon this
' nomination will meet at tho hands of tlio peo
ple. 'I he enthusiasm In tlm Convention over It
was unbounded, but I veuturo to predict that
tho people of every shade of polltlc.il opinion
throughout tho Statu will ruculto it still more
enthusiastically. II Is surely a harbliucr of Joy
to tin-in, for tlio defeat of llurtranlt is the do
feat of ono of tho most villainous iln.'s that
ever cursed any State
A VICTOIIV rOIl THE GltEELKVITES,
I havo said that Mr. Wallace contributed more
thau any other man to secure the nomination of
Mr, Iluckalow, In sinking whatever personal
feeling he muy havo entertained toward lilni on
account of past differences. Mr. Wallaco Is the
recognized leader nf the party In tlio State,
and as I said last night, ho favored tho t-ndorso-inent
of tho Cincinnati ticket. It Is exceedingly
gratifying to find thlaatutemcnt corroborated by
a leading editorial In tho Hurrlsbiirg I'nlrlnl,
which Is recognized as expressing his views on
all iiueatlous of State and National policy, Tho
editorial roleiroil to was upon tho groat victory
gained bv tlio coalition of thu Dcinocratlc.mil
Liberal Republican Congressmen In 1 ho defeat
of tho Kii-Klux bill, Tlio nrtlclti was dotlbln
leaded, and was evidently designed to havo an
Inllueni'o upon this Convention. It concludes
with tho following eloquent paragraph l
Out uumbercd as are the Democrats In Congress, lliey
could nut have accomplished this auspb lous result with
sll their resl In behalf of constitutional rights. Alum

A Twenty. Yenra Lnvvault with Mntcrlnl for
n First-Class Novel -An Incident In the
Life of Gov. John A. King.
Yestenlny morniiifr Mr. I). I. lliiruiinl
filed the decision of tho Court of Appeals In the
ense of Fitzgerald, trustee, act. Topping. Tho
case contains many elements of n romance. In
1U0 James Rrysnn, who owned a houso In Liv
ingston street, another houso In Nassau street,
several vacant lots In Wyckoff street, and a farm
In Queens county, was sued by n Mrs. Morrison
for what he deemed an unjust demand. Ho
sought tho advice of Counsellor Danahcr, who
advl-cd him lo convey all his property to Wil
liam Culbcrt, in trust for Ilryson's tw a daugh
ters, ono aged six nnd tho other throe years.
Danahcr, who had a faculty of drawing papers
without consulting nny catnhlishod lorm, drew
a deed which llrysoii executed.
In December, ISM). Mrs. Morriton recovered a
small Judgment agninst Rryson, which being un
paid, her counsel, Scahury Klssam, Instituted an
tictlon In the City Court to sot the trust deed
aside on account of fraud, and Curtis nnd Top
Ping appeared as attorneys for Colbert und Dry
son. In September, 1st", n verdict was rendered
In Morrison's favor. About that time the trus
tee sold the Queens county farm to ex-Governor
John A. King, and received monov enough to
pay tho Morrison Judgment- nnd tho samo was
handed to Topping, ono of tho attorneys, to sat
isfy the Judgment. Instead of cancelling tho
Judgment, ho procured from Mr. Morrison two
papers, one releasing the Queens county lands
from the Judgment, and the other assigning tho
Judgment to his father, the present defendant.
Ho waited until tho fall ot SV, and then bo Is
sued an execution and directed tho Sheriff to
sell nil the llrookl)n property, nnd ou tho 1-th
of February, InVI, tho Miorllf sold tho wholo
property to the defendant for tlio, and on tho
uih of May, IKV7. the Sheriff , Mo the defendant.
Topping, it deed of tlio premises, who, within n
few days, took proceedings before a Justice and
removed llrjson and his family nut of the prem
ises they occupied. Ilrysoii then nppllcd toJ.
W. Gilbert, who. In Ilryson's name, sued to re
cover the premises. Judge Gilbert thought tho
trust deed so Luncllugfr drawn as to ton
tain no valid trust, llut that action resulted In
a non-suit, Topping's counsel Insisting that tho
action should be brought In Colbert's namu.
The General term nftlrmed tho non-suit In lnM,
A suit had been begun In June, lsVi, by K. Daly,
attorney, in Cullx-rt's name, for the same pur
pose, which n. dismissed by default in Novem
ber, In17, and Topping, iiiimt threats of collect
ing thu rusts of Culbcrt, induced Dim tu disc n
tlnue all efforts to open tho default, audio to
Icaso all claims to the property.
'lhltiga remained In this condition until Cul
bctt's death In 1NSI. Then D. P. Halliard was re
tained to recover tlio property. Hy his udvlco
the Court appointed Muurlcu Htzgerald trustco
in Culbcrt' place, and an action hojs Instituted
In the City Court In August, 1nI. Thu ui lion
was tried In Jnuuaiy.lNAaud u verdict rendered
for plnlntlr;. The defendant paid iii tlio costs and
obtained a new trial. The case was again tried
In February, Is.'), and niiothi r verdict was ren
dered for the plultuiff, on tho ground that tho
Judgment hating been paid, there could bo no
iKfdgumcnt of It, or side by execution under It.
Defftidnut appealed tu tho Supremo Court,
anil lu February, lNil, tho Judgment was affirm
ed. Tho delendaiit appealed to tho Con it of
Appeals, and that Court has recently affirmed
tho Judgment, by which tlie.se two girls, now of
nge. recover about 3o.(XiU worth of prucrty and
all tlio rents since their father was dipos-o-seit.
II. L. Sanderson has been appointed rufereu to
take an uc-nunl of tho rents.
Tho case Is pc ullur, from tho mortality of tho
actors therein, llrjson nnd Ids wife, Culbcrt,
Danahcr, Klssam. Curtis, nnd Topping, the at
torneys, und l,onias and Tuber, wlnu-wes, and
Gov. King, tho purchaser, have all died. On tho
day thu Mierlrf sold tho property, Topping, tho
attorney who Issued thu execution, died.

There seems to ho it wnli' tllfforenee of
opinion between the houscstnlths and their em
plojers, At a meeting of tho former last ovon
Ing, It was reported, iinild enthusiasm, that tho
principal firms had acceded to tho eight-hour
movement, and would employ men under that
system In future On tho other hand, the em
ployers met, nnd nftcr comparing experiences
found that not n single firm had taken dellnltu
nctlon, the nnswer to tho strikers In ovory In
stance being that they should abldo by tho
nctlon of tho employers' meeting.
At this session Mr. Campbell, on being called
to prctldo said, whllo ho had duo regard for the
rights nf the worklngmcn, ho could not but
vlow this movement as a mistake which would
In time prove disastrous to tho men themselves.
Hn thought It dishonest In them to snap tho
strlko at tho busiest tlmo nf the year, when work
on largo contracts had Just begun. Ho was,
moreover, confident that tho movement would
provo a failure, after n few months. Agitation
had roused tho mon to this so-called reform,
nnd when tho excitement had died nut tho
movers would bo glad to work any number ot
hours n day.
Sovcral other employers coincided In this
view, and It was conceded that the reform would
dlo n natural death when left clone. A resolu
tion was unanimously udnpted ns a cnmpromlso
that eight hours should bo conceded from tho 1st
of August. To do so befuru thai tlmo was lo
suffer n greater loss upon contracts already taken
than would result from closing their establish
ments for two months. Tho subjoct of forming
a cooperative union was then discussed.
Tho employees who declared strlko to begin
on Monday, Initiated 150 members, nnd positive
ly declared that Curry, Fortv-first street; Vree
lund, Hroadway; Cook, Thirty-fifth street, ami
Scott, Thlrtv-flrst street, had conceded tho
eight hours. These persons, at tho employers'
meeting, with equal emphasis said they had not.

git on In The Sun of Monday. James met a
young Caucasian femalo In an all-night saloon
onGrccno street, and after providing a liberal
entertainment for her, escorted her to Commo
dore Vnudcrbllt's stables, whero he proposed
furnishing her frco lodgings for tho night. Tho

while both tlio girl and negro woro In quiet oc
cupancy of tho stable On tho entrance nf tho
police the negro showed fight and was only se
cured after dealing ono or two knock-down ar
guments In demonstration of the axiom that a
man's houso la Ids castle. Ho was finally marchod
off to tho police station, followed by Vunder
bllt's brother-in-law, Crawford, when occurred
tho shooting scrape that formed a scporato chap
ter of tho nicht's mishap
Messrs. Howo ic Hummel appeared yester

of tho hcnringuntll the next court day. In sun
port of this application they produced au alll
dav It made by Mr. Uummell alleging that Com
modoro Vanderbllt was nn eye-witness of tho
occurrence In thu stable, nml would swear that
thooflicer wa a trespasser In violation of tho
law, and the first assailant ; that tho negro only
acted In self-defence, and was justified in it hat
bo did. The ufildatlt further alleges that tho
Commndnro Is willing and anxious to appear as
n witness in the prisoner's behalf, but had been
obliged to lento the city nt an c.iriy hour yesler
day morning, and would not bo back until Fri
day. Mr. Orlando Stewart of the District Attorney's
office, appeared for tho people and opposed too
continuance oiitho ground that Vnudurblll had

Mr, Howe explained that Mr. Hummel had

that the Commodore expressed great Interest lu
tho case ami wanted to bo present to defend his

that reipilicd lilm to leave town early yesterday
morning -engagements that Involved thousands,

Tho Court (Justices I.edwlth, lllxbr, and Me

THE TltEATV LOST.
Glilil-lone Declining to Arerpt of Grnul's
Couct'ftHlnns Prubublo Wlthdrnvvnl of
Hngluud from the tirnotu Conference.
Washington, Muy HO. Up to a Into hour
this afternoon no final reply had been recolved
from Fngland on the treaty question, and
though tho Stato Department nro exceedingly
reticent as to tho text of tlio despatches now pass
ing, they do not conceal tho fact that tho Indi
cations aro that Rngland docs not Intend to go
on with tho Geneva Conference. It Is argued If
there was such an Intention It would be at once
expressed, as the longer Gladslono hesitates
over his course the more firmly will tho opposi
tion press express llielr hostility to the treaty.
In any event a final settlement of tho question
cannot bo postponed much longer.
There Is no doubt that the time has about
come whon Secretary Fish will have to leave the
Cabinet. If he Is to be held entirely responsible
for the muddle of our foreign affairs generally,
ho could a tale unfold that would not be pleas
ant for others, and this constitutes his sole hold
on the ofllco.
The telegrams last received do not giro hope
of an early adjustment, as It Is said Great llrlt
aln requires an unequivocal ttllhdrawal of our
claims for Indirect damages.

members ot the committee appointed to Inquire ,jf
Into tlio origin and character of the difficultly
In Louisiana. jf'ja
Messrs. Scofleld, the Chairman, nnd McCrary lfjj
gavo a clrcumstantlall account of the troubles, ,',U
but did not recommend action ou the part of 'ij
Congress. They say the trouble was not be-
tween tho Government and odlcers of Louisiana i ip-l
on tho ono side nnd the olllceni of thu Culled ' k.;'
States on tho other, but between the friends and . Jfjf
opponents of tho Administration of Gov. War- ijVi
moth. It was mainly a division or quarrel . 'U'i
among thu leaders of tho Itepiihllcan party, In I?,!,,
which many of tho Federal officials wore iiroml- iSL ,
nent actors, some upon one aide und somo upon 1) '
tho other. 'J.sy
The leaders of the Democratic pnrty nlso par- l;-'f
tlclpaled In It, sometimes in alllanco with one .' H
faction and sometimes with the other, as Inter- I? it
est or consideration of duty seemed to require. Vj
The part taken by the Federal ofTUIal In the ?
quarrel, whether wise or unwise, seems tu have yfi
originated entirely with themselves. There wan H't
no traco of Interference by the Administration .Jf'Ju
at Washington. This was attested hy the docla- lit
rations of the officers themselves, as well as by 'f.T
tlio fact that they wero very much divided lo Ui'
their affiliations. Ki
Mr. Smith of New York concurs In the above li t)
report with additions and qualifications, and :h(
says It Is not to bo doiiled that In thu now and 'ji tY
disturbed condition of things some unscrtinu- l
lous men have got Into ofllco in Louisiana. The llni
men who go South to hold offlco and return .Itl i
when they lose office, aro not confined to any lfV
political party. -
