wore no jewel.y of anr description. She Rank

shrug. "I4;ally, I cannot speak on that sub

with stage ofls-and-ons, though in a parlor.
Presently the crowd withdrew, and then I

She appeared to me uncommonly fat to be the
champion of leanness, and this was what first
struck me; what next appeared was that the
rest of her reputation, for capriciouauess and
fickleness, wa not altogether genuine, and it
was easy to discern her as a very sensible,
positive woman, by no means the flighty,
silly goddess paiuted. She talked as if therc
was nothing iu the two worlds fantastically
appreciated by her; overy word, look and
gestnre had a marked common-sense mean
ing; of course, what actress of talent can be
debarred from putting on the armor of her
profession at will? There is no law to pre
vent, and so she consults her moments and

A very important opinion was delivered bv

Washington, November 17. Alexander
H. Stephens was found this evening by the
Times correspondent seated before an open
fire in his old quarters at the National hotel.
Mr. Stephen sat in his invalid-chair, that he
moved to and fro easily as he talked to a
group of friends who surrounded him. His
bright black eyes looked as clear out from
beneath the soft black hat that he weals in
and out of doors as at any time duriug his
life. Indeed, it may be said that he is enjoy
ing robust health, although he has huul, dur
ing his absence from Washington, his cus
tomary narrow escape from death. He has
been too sick and disgusted to take anv part
in the campaigu in hi State, but he is now
ready to perform hi full duty as is member
of the house. He was in a very cheerful
and philosophical mood to-night, ;vnd talked
in a soft quaint tone of voice that sug
gested a woman's. His contempt for tbe
policy of the Democratic jiarty and the
bungling of its leaders was expressed in a
dry, passionless manner, as if nothing bet
ter could be expected. His tick'rt would
have been Hancock and David D Avis.- If
such a ticket had been nominatttd, and
the Democratic executive committee
abolished, there might have been souie chance.
No change could be mode unless on could
actually promise better things. If the Dem
ocratic party conceded in advance tltat the
country was as prosjierotis us it could be,
then it at once conceded that the Bcpubli
cans ought to win. The whole Democratic
canvass has been a mad rush for the hog
trough. There had been no principle in
volved in the campaign, and, irom the man
ner in which the canvass had been conducted,
failure was to be expected. Mr. Stephens
said it is not true that the south is at present
growing in prosperity. In his State there
had been most euormous depreciation in all
kinds of property values. There had been a
steady decline in the material welfare of his
State for a number of years. He thought
that the present condition of affairs might be
likened to an old wound; the gangrene had
sloughed off, and new granulations were
forming. Probably the latter part of this
generation would see great wealth and pros
perity through the south. They would hard
ly come before that time, in his judg
ment. From now on he was certain of one
thing about the south: The result of the
last election has destroyed in its people its.
all-absorbing interest in politics. Hence
forth he wa certain that the south would be
content with any government that the north
should see fit to give it, always provided it
imposed on them no sort of oppression. Ho
said that what was needed, especially in the
south, was manufactories. Small ones were
being started in his State, but as yet not
much capital had been invested there. It
was not true that Mr. Bobert Toombs had
invested $200,000 in a cotton mill, as had
been stated in some of the northern papers.
Mr. Stephens anticipates a very cpuiet session,
of congress. He says most emphatically that
there will be no trouble about the count thia
time. He thinks it would lie a very foolish
policy to do anything to bring about an ex
tra session of congress. Extra sessions,
unless called for most extraordinary
reasons, are injurious to the party in the ma
jority. He had too high an opinion of Gen
eral Garfield's line of policy to believe that
he wo-, ltd call an extra session unless abso
lutely forced to do it; and he had too high
an estimate of the Bepublican party's man
agement to suppose that it would desire an
extra session. The Bepublicanshad claimed
throughout the canvass that what the busi
ness interests of the country needed was rest
from political strife, and an extra session
would be a very poor manifestation of the
honesty of their declarations. He said that
outside of regular appropriation bills, pos-d-bly
some such bill as Kcitkan's Inter-State
commerce bill, with some modifications, might
be passed. He doubted whether anything in
the way of financial legislation would be
done. He would try to secure action on his
metric coinage bill.
A Talk, with Judge O. A. Eoohrane.
Washington (D. C.) RemMUan: Judge
Lochrane, for many years chief-iusticc of the
State of Georgia, wiu found by the Republi
can last night at his residence quietly cogi
tating, and not dreaming that a newspaper
fiend was within gunshot. He recognized
the situation at a glance, however, and sub
mitted to the "pumping" process with that
grace and courtesy for which the judge is
J udge, said the Mepttblican. you have
read Senator Hill's letter, I presume."
1 have, as l read everything that eman
ates from his pen, for I regard him as a man
of brilliancy and ability."
hat do vou think of the views he ex
presses therein?"
His theory ot building up a new party in
the country will inevitably fail. The name
he would give it the National Union party
would kill it; for the Bepublican party is
now regarded as the National Union party of
the country, such being its recent popular
verdict by an almost solid north. The Dem
ocratic party will not crumble to pieces to
rally under such a name, aud it will be folly
to expect Bepublican to do so. For myself,
I believe the very liest policy for the south
would be, irresjiective of party organization,
to rally around the admistration of General
Garfield, believing, as I do, that he has the
capacity as well as the desire to inaugurate
a wise, liberal and national statesmanship in
the administration of public affairs."
"lhis, judge, looks to me as if you would
advise the south to become Bepublican?"
"I should prefer the south to become Re
publican and go along with the tide of pub
lic opinion rather than risk the experiment
of a new partv, which could result in the
south only in suffering and another defeat in
ISS4. It is very natural for me, who believe
the true policy of the south was to support
Grant, to advocate the policy of accepting
Bepublican principles and sustaining the ad
ministration elected upon them instead of
going into a new organization without a his
tory, or any hope or chance or probability of
"Would the feeling entertained in the
country that repudiation is the policy in the
south tend to destroy anv chance of success
for the new party?"
"The most important result of southern
leadership is their countenance of the repu
diation of State debts by the several legisla
tures of the southern States. 1 heard Conk-
hng's speech in New York, opening the
campaign for the Rejiublican party. Sur
rounded as he was bv capitalists and repre
sentatives of all the manufacturing and com
mercial interests, there was no single point
that told more effectively against the Demo
cratic party than the one of its tendency to
and vindication of so-called repudiation.
The iicople of the north will never confide in
any party founded upon the public policy
that recognizes for an instant repudiation of
State obligations."
"As a matter of fact, has the south so repu
diated its State obligations?"
.".'X-Ww that Georgia ha repudiated mil
lions, some three miTIiohs oTolale otTflgff-"
tions, as honestly incurred, upon which the
State is as honestly bound as the honor and
good faith and consideration of any contract
could bind a State. It was done without anV
hearing to the parties at interest. It was done
under the pressure of public clamor. It was
done under circumstances which market! it at
every Btep as one of deliberate and premedi
tated repudiation. The debts of . other States
I am not so familiar with, but Tennessee and
Louisiana and Virginia are alike, iu my judg
ment, guilty of a breach of public faith in
refusing the recognition of just debts. One
great trouble connected with southern repudi
ation is that States cannot bo sued. The
States that do pay their debtsowe it to them
selves to take such action a will make the
States amenable to suit for their indebtedness
and compel delinquents to pay their just ob
ligations." "But how would you do this?"
"By an amendment to the constitution that
would allow States to be sued. The greatest
nations submit themselves to suit, and such
liability is no infringement of State sove
reignity or of national dignity."
"Then you do not see any wisdom in Sen
ator Hill's idea of the formation of a new
"I don't. I see no reason why a man can
not come out openly aud squarely into the
Bepublican party and get th?re all the na
tionality and union he could get in a new
party, besides having the identity with a
great victorious army instead of losing his
ammunition and time among guerrillas,
who at last amount to nothing as a national
organization. Forjmyself, I propose to make
no halt on the wayside, but march right up
and take my chances with the Republican
party of the country.'.'
"But will you not be charged with incon
sistency in taking this step?"
"1 care nothing for the charge of incon
sistency. I have really been Democratic
since the war, on account of my personal
preference for the gentlemen who are in that
party. Politically I have differed from it.
In the first stieech I made after the war, in
the Ralston Hall, at Macon, I laid down the
very same doctrines I stand upon to-day. I
supported the reconstruction measures. I sup
ported Grant twice, and was for him the
thin! term, going to Chicago to try and
nominate him. I would have voted for
treneral Hancock, had I been at home, on
personal grounds. But I care nothing for
the charge of inconsistency ; I would rather
be right thau consistent in error. The solid
south is a mistake in politics. The Demo
cratic party is a blunder in statesmanship.
I waut to see the population of the south in
creased by emigration. I want to see a pub-
''c 0P'n'on there that will invite capital to
flow in tor anvestment. I waut to see the
lands of the south increase in value. 1 want
to s v the manufacturing interests of the
south built up and multiplied. I want to
see the people of the south rich and prosper
ous. And! think the Bepuhiicau parly will
contribute more to these results than the Dem
ocratic party."

Nashville American: A very important
decision was rendered in the United States
circuit court by Judge D. M. Key,
yesterday, in the case of James W. Stat
tier r. W. G. Lewis el al. William
J. Morris was indicted for tuurder in
the circuit court of Crawford couuty,
Arkansas. Stattler deposited $7,500 in Ar
kansas scrip with the sheriff of that county
to secure the attendance of Morris at the
next term, aud was indemnified by a bond
given by W. G. Lewis und others for the
same amount, deposited in the Giles National
bank at Pulaski, Tennessee. Morris appeared
at court, but while his call was pending ran
away, whereupon the sheriff took judgment
for the scrip deposited by Stattler and turned
it over to the State treasurer at its par value.
Stattler then brought suit in the United
States circuit court at Nashville against
Lewis el al. for the full amount,
$7500. The defendants claimed that the
scrip had been purchassd by Stattler at a
heavy discount, and that he was entitled only
to the am -nut he paid for the scrip. The
plaintiff claimed, however, that the defend
ants had indemnified him to the amount ol
$7500; that his scrip had been taken at its
face value by the treasurer of Arkansas, and
that he was therefore entitled to the full
amount. This was awarded-him Yesterday
by Judge Key.
And Their OuestM Celebrate the Opeulnja:
of the S en Chamber of Commerce
Bnildins; tn That City.
Milwaukee, November 18. The dedica
tion of the new chamber of commerce to-day
was attended by the State officers and promi
nent buines men from various commercial
cities of the Union. The new structure wa
erected by Mr. Alec Smith, at a cost of $250,
000. It is not surpassed for convenience and
elegance of finsih by any like institution in
any State. At 3:30 p.m. the new hall was
opened to the public and thronged with
prominent citizens and their wives.
Hon. John Johnston, representing Mr.
Mitchell, in a brief speech, pre
sented the keys of the new hall
to President Bodden, of the chamber, who
responded with appropriate remarks. The
now hall is large and elaliorately finished in
Queen Aune style, with the visitor's gallery
on the east side. It will be one of the finest
exchange rooms in the country. The walls
and ceilings are beautifully frescoed, the chief
feature of which is a beautiful allegorical
painting 10x45, with stained glass and win
dows, although not down in the programme.
About 100,000 bushels of grain changed
hands in a few minutes after the formal
opening. In the evening a grand banquet suc
ceeded the afternoon exercises, at which some
four hundred prominent Milwaukeeans and
business men of the northwest participated.
The following were the toasts: "The Presi
dent of the United States," drunk standing;
"Commereial organizations of the United
States," response by Charles Rudolph, of
Chicago; "Commercial men of the north
west," response by Hon. C G. Williams, of
Janesville; "Railroads and transportation
interests," response by Hon. C. S. Colby, of
Milwaukee; "The legal profession," response
by Lieutenant-Governor J. M. Bingham;

New York, November 1G. It is rumored
that Kenward Philp, the alleged forger of

jn regard to the authorship of the letter that

It is known that Philp had a long and ap
parently confidential conversation with the
district-attorney yesterday afternoon at the
attorney's office, but the subject of it is kept
secret. There is much speculation regarding

New York IVtrfA; "Whv is it that Mr
Hewitt is made the object of this malignant
attack.' Why do the organs not vilhlv Mr
Randall? First to express an opinion when
the letter was submitted was Speaker Ran
dall; and when he so positively identified
the handwriting, body and signature, as Mr.
Garfield's, as he did, all that Mr. Hewitt
could have said thereafter would not have
prevented its publication. If the letter be a
lorgery, Mr. Hewitt is not responsible for its
wide circulation. That rcsponsibilitv rests
upon Speaker Bandall. Siieaker Randall's
adverse opinion would have prevented any
turthcr publication. Air. Kanilall is more
responsible than Mr. Hewitt for the broad
dissemination of this letter, and it is coward
ly on the part of Mr. Randall to remain in
the background, permitting Mr. Hewitt to be
made the scapegoat for his offense, if there
is any offense."

New York, November 16. Colonel II
Hadle.Vj who organized the bogus Hancock
Kepuuucan ciuu, anu wnose record as an in

posure by the Tribune, has admitted to a re
porter of the Brooklyn Eagle that he was the
agent of the National Democratic committee
to obtain information relative to the Morey let
ter, both at lynn, Mussachusetts,and at Cum
berland, Maryland. The emissary who was
ent to Lynn gave his name as O. B. Wilson.
He it was who bore away from the Kirtland
house the register on which, after it passed
into his possession, the name "H. Ij. Morey"
was found written in the month of October,
and February of the same year. There
is every reason to believe that these entries
were made after the register had passed out
of the possession ol the h inland house.
tolonel Hadley says he brought the register
to New York. It is almost certain that he
wa the person who was masquerading under
the inline of O. B. Wilson. He will probably
have an opportunity to explain how the name
"H. L. Morey" came to appear on the
register in two places, when the hotel pro
prietors are certain that they never had
guest oi mat name, and why the name in
each instance is written in different ink from
that used for all other entries on each pace
"Colonel" Hadley also says that he obtained
the amdavit from O linen, afuis Lindsay
which was telegraphed from Cumberland
two or three davs before the election. Tl
prosecution does not place the most implicit
reliance on Colonel rladlev s statements
even where he criminates himself. His rec
ord is against him. Counsel purpose to trace
his movements themselves, ana they have
done so.

Minister Kasson is still in the city, and will

He has -no present opportunity of doing
much in the way of working up his speaker
ship canvass. He relies largely upon the
fact of his availability. He has been long
enough out of public life iu this country to
have no fresh enemies. Fiye, his most
formidable competitor appear to have the
inside track fur the United States scuatorship
in Maine. A letter recently received from
Maine says that all the members of the leg
islation from Frye's congressional district
are solid for him. This represents a very in
fluential portion of the Maine legislature,
and in jioint of members almost makes his
election certain. It U a noteworthy fact

while his mouth is refined and

inclined to the persuasive, aud for that rea
son he was a very popular member of con
gress. He is a man of extreme self-
possession, wide lntormation, aim a goou
knowledge of other countries besides

absolute charge of the house.
his principal contestant for speakership
honors, is a verv viiuug-luouing man lor oue
who has married children, and also grand
children, lie is oi the blonde type, short
and rather thick-set. His face indicates
dbggcd pertinacity and an imagination that
would produce a fimatic with the right sur
rounding. As it is he is one of the most
rabid partisans over elected to the house, and
has is-, it one of the most faithful allies of
Mr. Blaine during the latter' political
career. His face looks as if it were cast in
some iron mould, so positively and set are
its lines. His forehead is Vrd and low,
vv I'ue Ui'fir a-'f1 rf pal! mmtnrx (tii-
ored blue eyes, that fairly glint with cold
rays of light when he is excited. Hi nose
is large and quite broad at the base. His
face is shaved with the exception of a gray
ish blonde mustache, that curls up thickly
at either end of his thin-lipped mouth. His
hair is thick and curling. When he is
speaking it has a way of falling down in
straight, bristling masses across his forehead.
To throw this back with an impromptu toes
of his head is one of the most successful
stage-business effects of Mr. Frye's rather
loud-mouthed orating. Mr. Frye is astaunch
friend and an uncompromising enemy. He is
a good lawyer and a man of high character,
but he docs not have the cultivation and ju
dicial mind of Mr. Kasson. There is never
but one side to any question to Mr. Frye, and
that is the side of his party and his friends.
He is mi extreme man in all his ideas. He
actually believes in the Maine liquor law, and
has a very poor opinion of anything lioro or
grown outside of New England. Besides
this he is the only leader left of the original
influential ring of Bepublican members in
the house minority. General Garfield,
Charles Foster, Mr. Frye and Mr. Hale, in
times past, have been, practically speak
ing, a board of directors for the control
and government of tha Republican side.
No Ecpublicau who had not subscribed alle
giance to the board could hope for prom
inence on any of the committees or hoiie to
distinguish himself in the house. General
Hawley, of Connecticut, and Robeson, of
New Jersey, were added to this board in the
last congress. In the same way, when the
house comes to be reorganized by the Repub
licans, Sam Randall and his friends upon the
Democratic side will really have control of
all the favors parcelled out to the Demo
crats. It has been learned through private
advices from Ohio that there is
although the general public would never have
suspected it. The merit of this candidate is
based upon the sole fact that he is from Ohio.
This third candidate is a congressman by the
name of Keifer. The information that
Keifer is a candidate comes from such a high
,iii'i trustworthy source that it cannot be
doubted. It comes from Mr. Keifer himself.
Mr. Keifer is oue of the purest types of the
genuine Ohio statesman. He is a large
boned, coarse featured, coarse haired man,
whose every surface feature indicates rough
ness and lack of polih. He looks very
much like Mr. Hayes, with the exception of
being a trifle shorter. He has one or two
advantages, however, over Mr. Hayes in that
he docs not profess to be so truly good, and,
second, he is a much more loyal party man.
There i nothing however, in his own personal
make-up, intellectual or otherwise, that
warrants hii personal promotion from
the rank aud file of the house. The small
amount of notoriety that he possesses has
been occasioned by the fact that the Presi
dent has made him his spokesman on several
occasions when the regular mouthpieces of
the President ditl not care to assnme the
luestiuiof pr vltege. Keifer Is really !. man
after the President's own heart, and about
the only kind of a man in whose society he
is perfuctly at ease. Keifer aud he will put
their arms around each other and gush for
hours. There is no doubt but that Mr. Keifer
will be backed iu his speakership aspirations
by the entire Hayes influence. How many
votes this may secure for him the reader is
as well able to compute as any one else.
