Lacoxia, N. H., May 3. There is much
excitement here, and throughout this section
of the State, over tae announcement, just
madu public, that Thomas K. Ladd, one of
the most prominent business men of this place,
wtio disappeared on Monday last under cir
cumstances leading to the belief that he com
mitted suicide, was a forger to a large amount
and an incendiary, ruining a number
people and victimizing live banks. On Mon
day he appeared much excited, and obtained
a loan of some money. He then went to his
house, and his wife noticing his strango ap
pearance, he said: "1 will be back by and by
and tell you all about it." Soon atter he bor
rowed a team and started out to ride. That
evening the team was discovered twelve
miles distant, near a swollen and rapid
stream. It was then thought he had committed
suicide, but some believe he fled to Canada.
He has been financially embarrassed for
some months, and the determination of his
creditors to put him in bankruptcy led to an
investigation of some of his papers, when
the forgeries were discovered. The four par
ties whose names are signed to the
forged notes alio signed so many
genuine notes in his favor that it is
slieved they will be ruined. His entire lia
bilities foot up thirty thousand dollars. The
amount of forged paper already discovered
is. five thousand dollars. Ten buildings in
various localities, heavily insured, and held
by Ladd, have been burned within a few
years past. Before his departure he confessed
to a friend that beveral of the fires were his
own acts of incendiarism.

Senators M'Donald and Jonea and Repre

Morrison were appointed as an executive
campaign committee, and instructed to
actively co-operate with the resident commit

campaign purposes. Ine reuistncting of

of the committee that it should be red is -tricted

A caucus of the Republican senators was
held at the capitol this afternoon for the pur
pose of exchanging views as to the general
political situation and for receiving the report
ot the committee appointed last month to
make sugsrestions as to what political meas

action. Senator Edmunds, the chairman of
this committee, reported in favor of moving
the adoption by the senate of a series of
resolutions declaring in substance that the
fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the
constitution, having been duly and legally
ratified, do now form a part ot the supreme
law of the land, and as such should be en
forced by the executive departments. After
considerable discussion this recommendation
was agreed to, and the resolutions will be
shortly presented to the senate and pressed
to a vote, with a view to making up the
record of both political parties for the coming
fall campaign. No other action was taken
by the caucus. The proceedings were har

states, that if the postmaster-general is satis

A Cablaet Meeting-
At the cabinet council to-day there was se
rious attention given to recent reports relat
ing to the agitations on the Mexican border.
There is abundant evidence of the fact that a
strong movement has been inaugurated on
the American side of the Rio Grande to cross
over for the purpose of giving trouble to Diaz.
Reports to this effect have been received by
government. The secretary of war, after the
cabinet adjourned, issued an order to General
Ord, enioining it upon that officer to be par
ticularly vigilant in the endeavor to prevent
any invasion of Mexican territory with hos
tile intent from the American side of the Rio
Grande. It is the opinion in administration
circles here that there will be serious trouble
in Mexico, and particularly along the border.
The followers of Lerdo are without doubt in
stigating Indian raids into Mexican territory
for the purpose of having United States
troops pursue them across the river, and thus
produce additional complications with the
Mexican government. This fact was men
tioned at the cabinet meeting. Escobedo is
in Texas, and the opinion that he should be
arrested for violating the neutrality laws was
expressed by some members of the cabinet.
The foregoing information has been received
by our government through a number of offi
cial channels, including not only the mili
tary authorities, but the civil officials subor
dinate to the State department and the de
partment of justice. Directions wdl be im
mediately issued from each of these depart
ments for the prevention of violations of the
neutrality laws.
Assistant-Secretary Seward announced that
news had been received that the govern
ments of Switzerland and Holland had ac
cepted the invitations of this government to
participate in a conference on the silver ques
tion. Financial matters formed a topic of
considerable attention at the meeting. Much
gratification was expressed at the exhibit of
the nation's financial condition, as shown by
the public debt statement on the first instant,
and the fact of heavy subscriptions to the
four per cent. loan. Reference was made to
the statement of the burean of statistics,
showing that during the nine months ending
March 31st last our exports exceeded our im
ports by the unprecedented amount of two
hundred and six million dollars. This was
considered hiehlv favorable for the mainte

btates from and after an early date of re

sioner of agriculture as humbugs.
Mr. Harris defended the commissioner.
whom he regarded as a polite, accommoda

faithful and efficient officer.
Mr. Crittenden said two years ago he had
obtained from the department a bag of gar
den seeds, which he distributed among his
constituents, and they had never to this day
forgiven him for having swindled them.
Mr. Humphreys inquired if that was the
first time the gentleman had swindled his
Mr. Chittenden said that last year he had
obtained another bag of seeds, but the result
had been the same. If congress were to go
on the principle that every farmer was to be
assisted with seeds, the appropriations for
that purpose would soon amount to millions.
Messrs. Haskell and Wnittnorne spoke in
support of the agricultural department.
Mr. Durham stated that he had intended
no reflection upon the personal integrity of
the commissioner, tie bad termed bim a
humbug because he was undertaking to. do
things which he could never accomplish.
The agricultural interests of the country were
not to be promoted by black wax-beans and
some cboice peas and garden-seeds; they de
manded a revision of the tariff, a rigid econ
omy and a regulation of the currency.
Mr. Townsend IN. Y.l made a brief reply
to Mr. Durham's remarks about peas and
beans. He said that in a trreat many con
gressional districts the people eat peas and
beans. ihey are an important addition to
the humble meal of the farmer, and there arc
very few districts in the country where the
people can subsiBt simply on
The amendment was adopted.
The sections in reference tofthe judiciary
having been reached, Mr. Hale moved to in
crease the salary of the judges of the south
ern claims commission from four thousand
dollars, as provided in the bill, to five thou
sand dollars as fixed by law.
On motion of Mr. Atkins the bill was
amended so as to provide for four assistant
attorney-generals, the bill as reported pro
viding tor but three.
Mr. Hanna moved to strike out the section
which abolishes the office of naval solicitor.
Atter debate, rejected.
Mr. Young moved that the amount appro
priated for the rent of the Freedmen's bank
building in Washington be reduced from
fourteen thousand to ten thousand dollars.
Mr. Atkins, while asrreeing to reduce the
rent to ten thousand dollars, was opposed to
any further reduction. He was in favor of
Eaying a liberal rent for the building owned
y the swindled freedmen.
Mr. Young said that he did not think that
it was obligatory on the government to re
imburse the freedmen for what they had lost,
but that if any gentleman would submit a
proposition to reimburse them, he wouldgive
it bis hearty support.
Mr. Chalmers said that.throughout his dis
trict every freedman had deposited his sav
ings in the Freedman's bank under the im
pression that the government went bond for
it. The government was bound in honor
and in law to make their losses good. This
should be done as aa act of good faith.
Mr. Young gave his friend from Missis
sippi Chalmers credit for his philanthropy.
It was praiseworthy in him, because the col
ored people had a majority of eight thousand
in his district. Out of that eight thousand
he Young J undertook to eay that there was
not a solitary one who had a dollar in bank,
or ever had.
Mr. Chalmers stated that the colored peo
ple in his district had deposited over ten
thousand dollars in the freedmen's banks in
Vicksburg and Natchez. He had never heard
it asserted before on the floor that it was a
disgrace to be poor and honest. There were
a number of colored people in the district, and
he had made good Democrats of them.
The amendment was adopted. The read
ing of the bili was then concluded, and the
committee rose and reported the bill to the
house, but no action was taken thereon.
Mr. Whitthorne introduced a bill to en

Speatal Correspondence of the Appeal. 1
Washington, April 30. When the Ap
peal, in the line of its duty, about the time
the Presidential fraud was being consum
mated, denounced that crime and the crimi
nals, there were not wanting persons who
would shudder at even the slightest complici
ty in an ordinary fraud, who cried out against
any agitation that would remind the people
of the villainy and sustain a public sentiment
that would deter willing villains from at
tempting so heinous an offense in the future.
These gentlemen told us, through their or
gans, that such agitation would serve to keep
alive the then existing apprehension of public
trouble, and so retard the growth of that con
fidence which is so essential to trade and traf
fic. A felony the most gigantic of modern
times was to be condoned because Mr. Hayes,
in his bargain with certain southern Demo
crats, promised to enforce the order issued
by President Grant for the withdrawal of
the troops from South Carolina and Louisi
ana. The Appeal was urged to drop its
agitation and cease to be Democrat
ic, cease to give expression to tne
injunction of the Democrats in congress not
to permit a day to pass without holding up
the robbery of the Presidency and the rob
bers to public condemnation. Of course the
Appeal preferred to be true to its history as a
Democratic organ, and to be guided by those
principles, the enforcement ot wbicn can
alone insure to the country good government
and the relief the people still stand sorely in
need of, notwithstanding the economical
measures enforced by a Democratic house of
representatives. To-day the "Old Reliable'.'
is justified in its course. The thieves who
Elundered the ballot-boxes in Florida and
onisiana are confessing, and the two great
est leaders of the Republican party in con
gress Conkling, in the senate, and Butler,
in the house aire leading in the good work
ot forcing an investigation ot tbe "residen
tial frauds in order that justice may be done,
that the crime may stand condemned by the
national legislature, and the crimi
nals and their aiders and abettors
may stand exposed upon the pub
lic pillory. Hayes's . administration has
now no bope to hold out to the people of the
south. Those upon which so many built a
general prosperity that has not been realized
hate long since been proven falla
cious. Sherman's financial policy has in
tensified the fever of bankruptcy and failure.
True to the policy which Strong and Bradley
on the rnoreme bench were placed there to
seal "with the approbation "of the highest f
judicial power, he has done all tbat lies in
him to make the bondholder richer and rivet
the chains which bind the working classes as
slaves ot the money power. la has bent his
energies to increasing the prospective gains
of the .moneyed ci asset", and has fought as
Hayes did in vetoing the silver bill against
every measure calculated to lighten the bur
den of the toiling millions. The head and
front of the financial policy of the adminis
tration, he has done, and is doing, all he can
do to widen and deepen the gulf which sepa
rates the capitalist from the laborer, believ
ing, as his brother, the general, said in his
intemperate speech upon the use
of regular troops to suppress riots,
that tho poor have no rights
the rich are bound to respect. But it
is not only to the presently poor that John
Sherman's policy carries terror and dismay.
The merchants and business men in all the
large cities and towns are succumbing to it
by hundreds, and thus the vast army of needy
ones is being recruited by a class that might
have been to-day as prosperous as in 1865,
had it not been for the resumption act, the
reduction of the volume of currency, and the
infamous series of measures by which the op
tion of the government to redeem its bonds
after five years in greenbacks was changed
into an option by the bondholder to take
gold-interest-paying bonds. Universal bank
ruptcy is what the Hayes administration has
brought to the country. For this the Ap
peal was asked not to keep up the agitation
against fraud; not to cry out against the crime
by which the sovereignty of two States was
subverted, and the people were cheated of
their will expressed at the ballot-box.
For this boon of wide-spread
ruin the Appeal was urged to
assume the attitude of a quiet spec
tator; nay more, to acquiesce in the fraud
still worse, to condone it by the acceptance of
what was termed the southern policy the re
moval of the troops from South Carolina and
Louisiana a policy forced by a public opin
ion for the existence of which the people of
the south had themselves alone to thank.
The Appeal has been true. Its day of re
ward is not far off. The confessions of the
thieves, and the part which Conkling and
Butler are playiog in compelling an investi
gation, justify its course as to the fraud and
the fraudulent President; and the ruinous
financial policy of Sherman justify its general
hostility and opposition to the fraudulent ad
ministration. Even Postmaster-General Key
justifies it. He does not hestitate to join with
the Appeal in denouncing the administra
tion of Hayes as fraudulent, although he him
self is pari of it. He says: "I have always
" believed that Florida and Louisiana were
" counted for Hayes wrongfully, and that the
" electoral votes of both States should prop
" erly have been counted for Tilden." And
yet Mr. Key remains, and says he will
remain a member of the fraudulent cabinet
so long as the fraudulent President is
"pleased to have me there," as he puts it.
Like master like man. Hayes knows he it
President by fraud, or ought to know if he is
as wise as Key, and it is to be presumed that
he is. But knowing the fact, be has no idea
of surrendering an office which enables him
to draw more of salary in one year than he
has made by the practice of law in all the
years he has followed that profession. Mr.
Key, to be sure, says tbat Hayes did not and
does not think that he was fraudulently
placed in the Presidential chair, and that he
"has good reasons for knowing that he was
no party to them" the frauds. But General
Barlow, of New York, who was one of the
visiting Republicans sent to Florida to see
the eount done up for Hayes, but who from
the first has denounced the fraud, says that
Hayes was bound to inform himself
of the facts of the Florida case,
which were easily accessible; that as a
lawyer he was bound to know that the elect
oral vote belonged to Mr. Tilden, and that
though the office was given to him under the
forms of law, he was in honor and conscience
bound to reject it. In this case I think Bar
low the safest, because, of the two, the most
disinterested witness. He is and has always
been a Republican has been an official in
New York for many years, and enjoys the
confidence of his party and his people. He
worked to elect Hayes and was anxious to
see him elected. To this end he went to
Florida, where, seeing for himself, he did
not hesitate to denounce the fraud consum
mated, as Dennis and M'Lin will prove, by
the direction of Noyea, who for his nefarious
work was rewarded with the high and honor
able place of minister to France. Mr. Bar
low thinks that what he found out and de
nounced, Hayes could and ought to
have informed himself about; and
that what Key believes to-day to be
a fact, Hayes can satisfy himself of,
if in no other way, through Key himself.
He has confidence enough in Key to retain
him in his cabinet, notwithstanding he still
calls himself a Democrat. Key is a good
lawyer, as well as an honest man. and he
can easily prove to him that he is a fraudu
lent President. The facts which induce Key
still to believe that Hayes s administration is
a fraudulent one he can readily.no doubt, give
to naves, and enforce by a lawyer-like argu
ment that will convince him that he should
step down and out. Were Mr. Key to en
gage in this work, and succeed, he would do
his country a signal service, and would by it
wipe awav the stain that attaches to his rx-
litical character as the postmaster-general of
an administration which he himself de
nounces as fraudulent. As says Mr. Barlow,
whose course in cutting loose from the fraud
ulent administration I recommend to Mr.
"One thing is certainly perfectly clear, and
" that is that the electoral commission
" never passed on the question whether or
" not Hayes's election was fraudulent. We
" often hear it said that Mr. Hayes's title
" has been passed on by a court, and that
" this ought to be the end of it, both in its
" legal and moral aspects. Even where a
" question is decided by a competent court,
".after full investigation and upon the mer
" its, it sometimes happens that evidence is
" afterward discovered (or perhaps existed at
" the timC; but was not sufficiently attended
" to on the trial) which makes it against good
" conscience for a man to retain property
" which has been awarded to him, though
his legal title may be perfect. For exam
" pie, an estate is devised by will, and the
' will admitted to probate. The legal title
" becomes perfect. But suppose it is after
" ward discovered that the instrument
" is a forgery, and that the wit
" nesses have sworn falsely, will it
" be pretended that the devisee is,
" in sound morals, justified in retaining the
" estate, even though a competent court has
" decided that it is his? Ordinarily, how
" ever, the decision of a court upon conflict-
" ing evidence as to the facts, would satisfy
" a-man's conscience, as well as give a legal
title. But the error so commonly preva-
" lent in this case is to consider the decision
of tbe electoral commission to be that of a
" court, or as having gone upon the merits of
tne case. 1 hat body, by its majority, ex -
" pressly decided that it could not try the
case on its merits, and it did not. ft neld
that it could only take the returns as they
" were made. Its action was as purely min
" isterial as that of our board of supervisors
actintr as canvassers. It seems idle. then.
" to talk about the merits of Hayes's title
having been passed upon by a competent
" tribunal."
I commend this argument to the attention
of Mr. Key, and urge upon him to make
known to the de facto national executive the
fact, as he believes it. that Hayes is a fraud
ulent President. If he will do this, and get
Haves to acknowledge the fact and submit
that fact to the supreme court on an agreed
case, notwithstanding the presence of Brad
ley and btrone, who are owned by the united
railroad and canal corporations of New Jer
sey and Pennsylvania, and also that Justice
Miller, ot Ohio, would have a voice in the
verdict, I think a result would be reached
that would settle the question of the fraud
forever. Has Key the nerve to do this ?

The Cool Manner in which a Htranjrer
leaped from the Suspension BriJee.
Special to the New York Herald.
Niagara Falls.' April 26. The following
are the facts in relation to the movements of
the stranirer (said to be from Wisconsin) dur
ing the last hours of his life, which he ended
this morning by jumping into tho Niagara
river from the upper suspension bridge. They
are entirely reliable, having been gathered
from a conversation with Mr. Murray, the
gatekeeper, on the Canadian side, ot the
lower or railway suspension briJge, and they
will doublless be of special interest to the
relatives of the unfortunate suicide. It ap
pears that he passed the night at the Ex
change hotel,
and at about seven o'clock this morning
crossed the bridge, and entering Mr. Mur
ray's office, sat down, smoked a pipe and
talked a while with Mr. Murray. He seemed
to be perfectly rational, stated his intention
of going westward by rail at ten minutes
past ten in the morning or at fifteen minutes
past one in the afternoon, and said he had
purchased his ticket and was desirous of
looking at the Falls before his departure for
his western home. Observing what seemed
to be a railway ticket protruding from his
vest pocket, Mr. Murray said:
"You may lose that ticket."
"Oh, no," he replied, "that isn't my rail
road ticket; I have that safe here," laying his
hands on his pantaloons pocket.
He then asked Mr. Murray if he knew of
any boy whom he could hire to walk with him
as far as the Falls, saying that he had asked
one, who told him he couldn't go because he
had to go to school.
Just then a lad, a small peddler, came
along, and the stranger engaged him to walk
with him to the Falls, promising to pay him
well for the service. They left Mr. Murray's
office and went as far as Buckley's hotel, Clif
ton, where the stranger wrote a letter which
he deposited in the postofiice.
the suicide.
After this, accompanied hy the boy, he
walked up the river road to the Falls, looked
at them for some minutes, and on his return
stopped at the entrance to the upper bridge
and requested the boy to wait there until he
could go to the middle of the bridge and re
turn. He gave the lad half a dollar, walked
half way across the bridge, paused for a few
moments, divested himself of his hat and
coat, and horrified those who were looking at
him by throwing himself from the fearful
hight into the river. News of the catastro
phe soon spread, and the unfortunate man's
body was seen by several persons before it
passed beneath the lower bridge. The rash
act seems to have been deliberately con
ceived, and certainly was carried into effect
with the utmost deliberation. So far as I
can learn the unfortunate man betrayed no
excitement whatever nothing to indicate
that he was bent upon anything more serious
than a quiet stroll to the FalU and back.
The letter which he posted b -fore leaving
Clifton will probably throw light upon the
sad affair, and determine the fact as to
whether suicide was the result of a sudden
impulse or a foregone conclusion.

Rome, May 3. Tho Italian republicans
have been sitting in congress for the past
three days. About four hundred clubs were
represented, one-fourth belonging to Liguria.
Signor Pantano, director of tbe Mazzinian
Journal Darere, opened the proceedings
with an address, in which he recapitulated
the republican programme, and denied
that there were divisions in the republican
ranks. In conclusion he paid: "Of all po
litical patties the republican party could
afford to be the most toloract, for time was
on its side." This utterance was greeted
with loud applause. The main discussion has
been on the question of the practical or
ganization of th kidian republicans in
one body. A propoMtiou wa9 finally
formulated and accepted unanimous
ly for the election ot a provisional
republican committ. e to be elected in the va
rious districts throughout lialy. Each dis
trict is to have the right to eiect one repre
sentative, or more, not exceeding three, for
every three thousand members. During the
three days that the congress sat. repeated
claim? to the right of Italy to Trieste an
Trentino were made. No communistic or
international societies were representad.
London, May 3. Though Russia is be
lieved to have secured Austrian neutrality,
her military situation in Turkey is now re
garded as exceedingly critical. The attitude
of the Turkish soldiers is reported as more
favorable than ever for an alliance with the
English troops. A month ago Russian influ
ence seemed on the point ot carrying every
thing before it, but now the Porte seems more
intractable than ever, and the Turkish army
is so strong that the threats of the
Russians have little effect. The Turks have
intrenchbd positions, and are scarcely inferior
in number to what the Muscovites can m iss,
so that not only will there be no question of
surprise, but even the most serious attack
might be resisted sufficiently long at any
rate until help could come from elsewhere.
It is not, therefore, considered likely that
they will accede to the evacuation of Varna,
Shumla and Batcum, even to get the Rus
sians away from the neighborhood of Con
stantinople. General Todleben, therefore,
will have to display considerable diplomatic
talent in an attempt to overcome all difficul
ties, while the conciliatory disposition in St.
Petersburg must be strong not to be worn
out by the temporizing policy which the
Turks, feeling the strength ot their position,
will doubtless use with their well known con
summate skill. Meanwhile, though, direct
negotiations with the Turks for the with
drawal of the Russians have begun.
Accounts from Adrianople state that troops
are still marching in the direction of Tchaldja
and the capital, while westward against
the insurgents but a few battalions and
squadrons of Cossacks have been dispatched.
There is no abatement of pressure on the
government works. The activity which pre
vails in every department cannot be expressed
Li detail, it being created by general de
mands for munitions and stores.
The first issue of preserved meat and bis
cuits to the troops at Woolwich, in the
place of ordinary rations, was made yester
d jy. This has been done to accustom tbe
mn to such fare, which will, in case of war,
become their daily food.
ERATIVES. London, May 3. The poverty of the cot

tracting great attention. Soup-kitchens are
being established in various parts of the
town, and many private individuals are con

operatives. A great quantity of provisions
are given, but tne supply is much too limited.
About twenty thousand of those on the strike
are non-unionists, and these are entirely de
pendent on friends.
