[From Trade and Manufacturers* Journal.)
IT IS NOT US FREQUENTLY THAT AN UN8US(lectin*
public are imposed upon by the monopolies
of various kinds of tonic cordials and beverages, that
are not only worthless, but decidedly injurious. In the
matter of Ginger Ale alone many preparations hsve
been placed before the public, but none seem to have
met with success or popular favor.
The celebrated Belfast Ginger Ale (Imported) of course
met with a certain devree of success, but the price prevented
its coming into general us.- among the vast
majority of consumers. Now matters are changed,
however, and Davtou can claim the honor of revolutionizing
the Ginger Ale business, as there is located
here a firm engatnd in its manufacture, whose productions.
although not yet two yfars in the market,
have trained a national reputation.lt is made by SACHS,
PRUDEN & CO.. which is composed of Kdwabd Sachs,
David Pbci>es and H. B. lurDF.y. Those gentlemen
have been leading ilruRvists in this city for many years,
and the science and skill required in their profession
has been a valuable acquMtion to them in their new
venture. Their tiinger ^Re is mail'- by the most
approved processes and is absolutely free from any
deleterious ingredients, only the best kind of spring
water, pure iringer. mirar and lemon are used; hence
its sui>eriority ov?t all other productions. It is vastly
sui?-rior to any made in this country. ?nd equal, u
indeed not superior, to the prized productions of foreign
m<nnfactur-rs. The firm puts up their goods in
quart Isjttles. Hitherto such a t)iiiur was thought to be
not only impossible but impracticable, but they have
practically demonstrated that it can be done, and done
successfully, as they warrant the Oinirer Ale to k>epin
any climate several days after being fir st opened. They
supply a gum cork winch answers all the required purposes.
Messrs. SACHS ft PRUDEN have made an
linn ense success of their enterprise. They ship their
woods to almost every section of the country. It is
handled by the leading gro.-ers and di alers in every
Important trade center. The price is reasonable, the
quality is far excel If net. ap23-w,f&m.3t

Th* Place Which Mr. Burrows Declined.?
The quid nuncs are at sea about the appointment
of a solicitor of the Treasury, now that Mr. J. C.
Burrows has declined the office. It Is thought that
Assistant solicitor Robinson may be promoted to
the position. He has been the "mainstay of the
office for several years past. It Is expected that
the office will be filled In a day or two. as the work
of the bureau has been very much delayed In waiting
for Mr. Burrows to give a definite answer.
The Vacant Controllers hip.?A number of
names are mentioned as likely to be selected to fill
the vacancy of controller of the currency. It Is
generally thought in the Treasury department that
the office will be given to Mr. Cannon, of Minnesota.
Other names spoken of, however, are Deputy
Controller Langworthy, Mr. F. E. Miller, of the
controller's office; Mr. James GftflUan, Mr. John c.
New and Mr. Charles E. coon.
Stenographic Reporter of the Kellogq
Trial.?The Attorney General has appointed Mr.
E. D. Easton stenographer to report the proceedings
in the case of the United States vs. Eellogg, to
begin in the criminal court on Tuesday next. The
appointment permits an arrangement with the defense
to report also for that side, and to furnish
such printed copies as they may require. The
terms are the same as those made in the preceding
star route trials.
Prompt News Service.?The report of the proceedings
of the Utlca convention published In the
first edition of The Star Wednesday, carrying the
proceedings up to the recess until evening, was
received here direct from the convention hall in
Utica over a single wire from Utlca to New York,
where connection was made with the Associated
Press quadruplexed wire. This was done by means
of an ingenious application of electrical science by
Mr. T. R. Taltavali, manager of the New York telegraph
office of the Associated Press,combining the
single with the quadruplex method of telegraphy. ,
The same method will undoubtedly be applied
when the coming Chicago conventions meet, and
on other important occasions.

of the navy were yesterday placed on the retired

Representative Reagan'v Danjferoui
Tillies*.
Representative Reagan's illness Is said to be dangerous.
He has bad two operations performed,
and It Is feared that It will prove severe for one of
his age. The operation of lithotomy was performed i 1
by Dr. Lincoln yesterday, by which the patient j
was relieved of a calcareous deposit of consldera- ! 1
bie size. He was In the Thirty-tilth Congress, and i
has served continuously, except during the rebel- j ,
Hon, when he was tlrst a member of ihe confederate
congress, and later postmaster general of the j 1
confederacy.
THE VIRGINIA COALITION CONVICTION.
The Remitn of the Work Summed ? p? ,
How the Different Delegate* stand. .
Special Correspondencp of The Evening Star.
Richmond, Va., April 24.?Toe Star In Its special
dispatches having given the public several days in
advance of the assembling of the late Mabone convention
a number of Important facts Indicating Its
course of procedure, it would, now that Its work Is
completed, seem fitting to make known the actual
results to the several parties Interested. First, exSenator
Lewis desires to have it published that he
would not go to the Chicago or anv other convention
with his freedom of action In any manner
abridged. Hon. Jno. S. Wise, who from the first
was on the regular Mahone state ticket, declined in
convention to go, because of a similar feeling,
though without making the real reason known.
His district (the 3d) refused to adopt the unit rule,
and therefore both the delegates are free from its
operation, one of them is a colored man of groat
force of character, and is by no means avowedly
for Arthur.
First district?Here the slate was broken, and L.
T. Stewart, Independent elected. His colleague Is
Mahone?Arthur. 2d dlstrlct^Both delegates for
Arthur. 4th district?The sam<\ 5th district?Here
was a big smash, and although The Star several
days ago announced CoL Sims of Danville, as a
delegate. It was In error In placing his name In the
list suggested by Mahone. Both CoL Sims and his
colleague, Scott, were elected wit liout the aid or suggestion
of Gen. Mahone, and both are opposed to
Arthur. In fact, Col. Sims is very outspoken. 6th
district?Both delegates reliably for Arthur. 7th
district?Both are perhaps Indifferently for Arthur,
and both have close relations with Senator
Rlddleberger. 8th district?Popham is personally
very much devoted to Mahone, but cares nothing
for Arthur, preferilng Grant to any one
else. Mitchell is from Alexandria, and his
position unknown. 9th district?Here was
another smash. The district convention did
not instruct for the rule, and Senator Lewis states
to me, on information not doubted by him, that one
of the delegates?CoL D. F. Houston, of Roanoke?
Is thoroughly for Blaine. He is the proprietor of a
large iron manufacturing property fa that county,
a native of Pennsylvania, and some years ago ran
in that state against -Randall for Congress. It is
believed he Is certainly for Blaine.
Of the six delegates-at-large. Editor Yost, of
Staunton, is an old friend of Blaine, and former
stralghtout. He is known to have expressed the
opinion a few minutes after his election that Mr.
Arthur had little or no chance for a nomination.
He was also unfriendly to the adoption of the unit
rule. W. H. Pleasants, colored, was nominated by
Senator Lewis to take the place of Mr. Wise. Pleas- ,
ants was very anxious to support the Senator for
that position. He Is not very firm in the Arthur ,
faith. The other four delegates are for Arthur, ,
although CoL Brady Is known to have little or no
expectation of Mr. Arthur's nomination. Such,
however, 1b the influence of Gen. Mahone, and such
the strategy of his skillful aid de camp, Brady, ,
that they will hold as long, perhaps, as they shall
wish to do so a considerable majority of the dele- |
gates to Arthur. There are several, however, whom
they are likely to find unmanageable.
In conclusion. It Is only fair to state that Gen.
Mahone Is once more at the head of a most power- ,
ful and confident organization; that his followers
appear to have entirely recovered from their defeat
of last year, and that the opposition is uneasy, not
to say frightened, at the outlook.
The Combination at Utlca.
what two republican senators bat about it.
The New York republican convention seems tohave
attracted mote notice and elicited more comment
among members of Congress than any of the .
other conventions. The friends of President Arthur :
are very much pleased at the way the Blaine men i
were turned down, and the Blaine men Insist that
it was no victory for Arthur. A republican senator,
who Is opposed to Arthur, said: "it was a practical
defeat for the President. He could only save himself
from positive rejection In his own state by ,
making a combination that put Edmunds in the
lead. Blaine had more delegates than Arthur, and ,
was barely beaten by a combination of both Arthur ,
and Edmunds men." Another republican Senator,
who la not a supporter of Arthur, though klldly in- j
cllned towards him, said: "The result Is really, in
my opinion, favorable to Arthur. If he stands a
chance of being nominated he will have the sup
port of a decided majority of the New York delega- ,
tlon, but II it shall appear that Arthur can't win,
then the delegation will be turned over to Ed- j
munds." The Arthur men in Congress are specially <
delighted at the defeat of Senator Warner Miller.
The Webb Perjury Cave.
This morning, in the Criminal Court, Judge I
Wylle, the trial of the case of Sonny A. Webb, colored,
for perjury In having sworn at the trial In 1
December last of W. H. Thomas and R. H. Harris, i
for larceny, that they had sold him a gold watch, <
was resumed. Mr. Coyle having argued the case
yesterday lor the government, Messrs. C. Maurice i
Smith and Campbell Carrlngton followed for the
defendant. Assistant District Attorney Taggart
closed for the government this morning. 1
The Jury retired after the charge by Judge i
Wylle, at 11:40 o'clock, and they had not returned
when our report closed.
Indictments.?The grand Jury to-day returned
indictments against Grant Thomas for assault with i
intent to commit rape on Martha N. Degges; James
Campbell, for house-breaking in the night; Walter
Bland, tor robbery; Edward Dickson, alias Chicken <
Dickson, for house-breaking in the night; Anthony <
Montrop, for receiving stolen property; John Hill,

ENLARGING THE POWERS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF
AGRICULTURE.
Proceeding to the calendar, the Senate took up
the bill reported by Mr. Plumb, from the committee
on agriculture and forestry, to enlarge the
powers and duties of the Department of Agriculture.
The bill enlarges that department to an
executive department of the government under the
supervision of a Secretary of Agriculture to receive
the same salary as the Secretaries of the other executive
departments.
Mr. Kenna offered as a substitute the bill heretofore
submitted by hliiL
The substitute provides for the creation of an executive
department, to be known as the Department
of Industries, to be In charge of a Secretary of
industries. The department Is to comprise separate
divisions of agriculture, commerce, manufactures,
etc., to be under the supervision of experts
In the several subjects of division.
Mr. Bayard thought the subject covered by the
bill and substitute (as contemplating an addition
to the Cabinet officers of the government) too important
to be disposed of or properly debated wlthoutearerul
examination of the measures presented.
1 he matter went over for the present.

notice, addressed the Senate on his Joint resolution

INVESTIGATION OF THE SOLDIERS' HOME AT DAVTON.
The House committee on military affaire will ask
tor the appointment of a special committee to Investigate
the management of the Soldiers' Home at
Dayton, Ohio. General Patrick, governor of the
home, has been charged with being overbearing
and inhuman lu his treatment of the Inmates. At
the request of the committee, Kepresentatlve Ro.seL'ranz
wrote to W. B. Franklin, president of the
board of managers of the national homes for disabled
soldiers, asking him to Investigate the complaints.
Mr. Franklin replied that the charges had
been Investigated and found to be groundless. He
recommended that a congressional .committee be
appointed to make the Investigation.

visit to this city, will represent the Steamboat
Owners' association In an argument before the
congressional committee on commerce for a modification

The Fight on the Naval .Appropriation
Bill.
a SHARP DEBATE IN THE HOUSE?ME. HEWITT'S
CHARGE AGAINST 8ECRETARY CHANDLER?ALL THE
SENATE AMENDMENTS NON-CONCURRED IN EXCEPT
THE ITEM OF $400,000 FOR NEW STEEL CRUISER8.
The House had the Senate amendments to the
naval appropriation bill under consideration yesterday
afternoon, and non-concurred in all except
that providing $400,000 for the armament of the
new steel cruisers, which was agreed to by a vote
of 12Vto 106. Mr. Randall bitterly opposed every
amendment, and Mr. Blount made a vigorous
appeal to the party to stand by the action of their
committee. Messrs. Blackburn and Hewitt (N. Y.)
spoke in favor of arming the steel cruisers. A long
partlzan debate, full of crimination and recrimination,
took place. Mr. Hewitt (N. Y.), during his
speech, said that about three weeks ago he went
through the Treasury and was Informed by the
officials in charge that the money arising from the
sale of the condemned naval vessels had never been
deposited In the Treasury, as provided by the act
of Congress, and It might be now drawing Interest
for some lndlvlduaL Messrs. Hlscock and Calkins
were on their feet at once In defense of the Secretary
of the Navy. Mr. Calkins made a very vigorous
speech, denying that their was anv Irregularity
In the matter, and about half an hour later he
sent to be read from the clerk's desk a telegram
from Mr. Chandler stating that the money had
twen deposited In the Treasury. Mr. Hewitt, In reply
to this, said that he had the word of the officials
in charge of such matters In the Treasury
that the money had not been deposited. If It had
been the deposit must have been made In some irregular
way.
Mysterious Diamond Bobbery.
k THOUSAND DOLLAR8' WORTH OF PRECIOUS 8T0NE8
TAEEN FROM THE JEWEL CASE OF ADMIRAL NICHOLS'
DAUGHTER.
A diamond robbery was discovered at the Ebbltt
house last evening, which is shrouded In mystery
from the fact that It Is Impossible to tell when the
depredations were committed. Among the permanent
guests at the Ebbltt house are Kear Admiral
E. T. Nichols, chief of bureau of yards and docks.
Navy department, and daughter. Miss Nichols
found it necessary to open her jewel case about 8
o'clock last e^tenlng, which stood on the bureau in
her room, and was astonished to find It entirely
empty. Her losses amounted to about a thousand
dollars, the missing articles being mostly diamonds,
rings, pins, earrings, Ac. She could not remember
exactly when she last opened the jewel box, but the
robbery must have been committed within two
weeks or ten days. The jewel case is a plain morocco
covered box, whlclj was originally a dressing
case. It was accustomed to stand on a bureau In
her room, while the key, which belonged to It, was
one of a bunch kept in the lower drawer of her
dressing bureau on the opposite side of the room,
beneath a lot of clothing. The lock of the box,
which Is of peculiar construction, was not injured
In the least, and It Is assumed that It was picked,
and that the work was done by an expert. The
box was locked and to all appearances Undisturbed.
There are no strong clues by which the thief can
be detected, but there are a few suspicious circumstances
which may throw some light on the matter.
The case was immediately- placed In the hands
of Detective Carter.
The Lottery Case Before Commissioner Mills.
To-day, In the hearing before United states Commissioner
Mills, in the case of John C. Parker and
Henry L. Plumb, charged with sending Louisiana
lottery tickets through the malls, the prosecution
closed Its case.after offering testimony to show that
Plumb's mall was placed in the ii?ii?ii?n? Lottery
box at the city post office; that letters taken train
that box were delivered to Plumb, and *>?? on one
occasion, when a number of letters were in
envelopes bearing the stsmp-of J. c. Parker, several
of the letters were marked by Post Office Inspector
Smlth-and these were the letters identified yesterday.
The case was adjourned until next Monday
afternoon.

present at the recent battle between Xavajos and 1
whites, at Mitchell's place on the lower San Juan c
river in southern Colorado, arrived at Durango to- t
dav. Johnson says: William Grove, yietor Neff, .
and I arrived at Mitchell's store on the evening of
the 15th. A party of a dozen Navajo Indians came ?
to the store, and one of them drew a gun on Edward s
MltclielL While the quarrel was In progress i
another Navajo named Kye I-lly, commenced removlng
the buckskin cover from hl> rifle, and the other ;
Indians ran for their guns, which were standing :
against the store. Both Indians and whites began .
firing. After al>out twenty-five shots had been exchanged,
the Indians retreated across the river,
leaving one dead on the ground. None of the
whites were hurt. The whites then proceeded to .
throw up fortifications. The women showed gr^at
nerve, carrying tubs of water for use in case of I
siege. Johnson then started for Fort Lewis. The < (
commanding officer immediately started a squad of (
mounted cavalry to the relief of Mitchells. When ?
they reached Bo wen's ferry, a Navjao came pn and
reported that the Vtes had killed all the whites at 1
Mitchell's place. So far no other word has been i
received, and Johnson fears that all the whites have 1
been massacred. It is not probable that the Utes <
went to the scene to avenge the death of a Navajo. I
It Is common for one tribe to lay its crimes to i
another. The district commander has order.nl Capt. <.
Ketcham's company to leave Fort Wise early this k
morning, and troops are also being brought up from t
Fort Wingate, New Mexico. It may be several d
davs before anything definite can be learned. The 1
following is a list cf the whites whom Johnson left a
at Mitchell's place, old man Mitchell and wife; t
Edgar Mitchell, wife and three children; Henry t
Mitchell and wife, Joseph Dougherty and wife; t
Peter Christian, Wm. Poland, Win. Grove, and

Discontent In the Northwest. J
danger of skrious trouble in manitoba.
Toronto, April 25.?The Globe, in an editorial on
the discontent in the northwest, says: There Is
still danger of serious trouble in Manitoba and the g
northwest. The oppression of the tariff, the op- ^
pression of railroad monopo'.v and the great in J ustlce
done by the disallowance of provincial railway
charters and the injury done to all interests j
by the mismanagement of lands have produced a
feeling of Irritation and a determination w obtain
redress of which the resolution passed by the ?
Manitoba legislature Is the first serious cwtootne.
If redress be refused at Ottawa, or If the terms .
offered be unsatisfactory, they are resolved to carry J*
their complaints to the foot o( the throne. The
colonial office will, no doubt, be unwilling to inter- ?
fere except as a mediator, but the Imperial govern- ?
ment will not like to learn that a community grow- ?

from the Canadian center of government has Ntfcraa

"the business Interests of the committee, snd

signed by A. M. Clapp. president, and R. T. Greener,
lecretary. While it Is not so stated In the call, the
nembers of the commlftee consider that the prime
)bject of the meeting Is the consideration ot the
harp's of hrlbery which will be made against the
candidates b? fore the last convention, and the evllcnoe
upon which these charges are supported.

It Is currently reported among the local repubtt?

>f the bribery of the delegates to the late District
convention are finding a great deal of material,
['he statements which are submitted to them are
nade under oath, and are said to specify with great
nlnuieness the time and place of the alleged
jrlbery, and the amount of money given or tha
character of the office premised. Money or tha
promise of offices seemed to have been the Induce
nents offered to wavering delegates to decide to
ast their votes for designated candidates. It is
isserted that delegates to the number of twentywo
have sutncrloed th'*ir names to sworn aflllavits

tflidavlis state that the candldatesln person offered

hey were approached by persons who represented,

A member of the committee stated to s Stab re?
H>rter that It was the Intention to consider all thO
'vldence presented, and if ln their opinion thn
halves were proved, they would report that tact
o Mr. Clapp, the chairman of the central committee,
who would at once call a meeting of the com*
nlttee. If, however, the charges were not sua*
alned by sufficient proof, they would report that
act. a Star reporter was told this morning that
he committee would not only be asked to consider
vldence oi bribery on the part of the Buconwftd
andldates beiore the late convention, but also
igalnst the unsuccessful candidates. Some of tha

A Star reporter remarked to Mr. A. M. Clapp tfcla
tiornlng that there was an impression that tha
ueeting of the central committee on Saturday
rould be a secret one.
"I do not propose to anticipate the action of tha
ommlttee," replied tbe chairman. "I do not
now what tbey will decide. I suppose, however.

The reporter sugg?-sted that the limitation procrlbed

oldlng conventions for tbe election of delegates to
he national convention expired to-day, and that
hey could not now hold snot her convention wtthlh
orty days prior to the meeting of the national con*
entlon, which Is June 8d.
Mr. clapp said: " There is no doubt but that tb*
( publicans of this District have a perfect right t#
stabllsh the tut of whether tgblr delegates tb
hicago were properly elected. If It can be ebowa
tiat this convention was imperfectly and Illegally
