THE HAYTIAN SITUATION.
A Derided Stand Said to Have Been
Taken by Secretary Blaine.
RUMORS AS TO A COMMISSION TO LOOK AFTER j
AMERICAN INTERESTS?A WASHINGTON MAX I
TALKED OK AS ONE OF THE COMMISSI0NF.R8. j
There is a growing faith in the report thnt j
Secretary Blaine has taken a decided stand in j
regard to the Haytian situation, anil intend* to i
send a commission down to the islands on j
board of an American man-of-war to keep a j
watchful eye on American interests there in j
case Legitime succeeds iu securing an alliance j
with some European power.
THE BOSTON ANI> THE OSSIPF.F. ORDERED TO HAYTI.
Secretary Tracy admitted last evening that :
he had decided to send the Boston and the Os- j
sipee to Hayti, but stated that the sending of I
the ships was not done at the request of the I
State department, but was merely for the pur- |
pose of relieving the ships of the squadron, i
He said lie knew nothing about the appoint- I
ment of commissioners to Hayti.
AS TO THE COMMISSION.
Gossip is busy constructing the commission,
of which Representative Hitt was first said to
be the head. Then there was a rumor that lie
had declined and that Gen. Lew Wallace would
go in his place. A newspaper man said to-day
that he had positive information that a place
on the commission had been offered to a Wash
ingtonian who has an office next to that
of the Attorney-General and possesses a fund
of information as to Haytian affairs.
Senator Eustis, in a recent interview, ex
pressed the fear that trouble was coining out
of the Haytiau situation. He said that the
Haytians are still sore over the Haytian Repub
lic controversy, and will be inclined to do all
in their power to harass the United States.
THE PROBABLE COMMISSIONER.
The gentleman referred to as being
a possible, even a probable commissioner
to Hayti, havinz an extensive acquaint
ance with Haytian affairs and occupying
an office next to tlie Department of
Justice, is Alex. Porter Morse, who was re- :
centlv a referee in a case between the United
State's ana Hayti. A Star reporter informed
him this afternoon that his name was being
mentioned in this connection, and
MB. MOR.SE DECLARED
that he really knew nothing about it. He said
that he had but a slight knowledge of the
present situation, and wus not able to talk
about the question. In answer to a query as
to whether it might be considered by other
powers a hostile act for the United States
to send a commission to Hayti. he said that he
preferred not to give a definite reply, but cited
the case of Mr. Maun, who was sent to Austria,
during the Austro-Hungarian difficulties as a !
special commissioner from this country, l'he |
other governments, he said.made several sharp
inquiries as to the mission of this gentleman,
which were finally satisfactorily answered.
DIRECT TO GETTYSBURG.
Proposed Railroad from this City to the
Bat tie-Field.
PRELIMINARY 6CBVEYS NOW IN PROGRESS?THE
PROBABLE ROUTE OF THE LINE?THE SECTION
OF MARYLAND IT WILL PASS THR0CQH TO BEACli
THIS DISTRICT.
For some time past surveyors have been in
the field in the region of Maryland to the north
of this District. Preliminary surveys have
been made for a new railroad, which, it is
stated iB to be built from Gettysburg. Pa., to
to this city* lb? parties interested in
this BclicnVe* are said to be PhilaiMphinns
and it is claimed that they have a contract with
the Pennsylvania road to operate the new road
in case it should be built. The exact route
has not been anuounctd, but it is said that it
will approach this city in tho vicinity of
| Sandy Spring, Md., and then as it comes
nearer to the boundary of the city it will branch
off. and. passing around the city, make connec
tion with the Pennsylvania road somewhere
beyond Penning. The train* on the new road
( caii then come into the city over the regular
line of the Pennsylvania road.
THE PROPOSED ROUTE
from Gettysburg pcsn's through a portion of
Maryland which is without direct communica
tion with this city. It u ill pass through Car
roll county, crossing the Western Maryland
somewhere near Westminster and the ninin
stem of tlie Baltimore and Ohio in the vicinity
of Mount Airv. It will also cross the Frederick
division of the Pennsylvania road. Its further
course will probably be through portions of the
; counties of Howard and Montgomery.
The new road will really be a continuation of
the one between Carlisle and Gettysburg, and
will render unnecessary the lon\; detour bv
wav of York. Pa., which is now required in
order to reach this city from Gettysburg.
BUT LITTLE KNOWN ABOUT THE PROJECT.
It is said that A brother-in-lnw of Jay Gould
is interested in this project. There is really
not much known about it. except that parties
of surveyors are passing from one point to an
other in Maryland making surveys for a rail
road. The general understanding is that
some such plan as outlined above is in con
templation and will be carried out. People
living near Sandy Spring have been given to
understand that the new road will paas near
that place. They are naturally interested as
they have been anxious for some time to se
[ cure direct and
RAPID COMMUNICATION WITH THIS CITY.
At the last session of Congress ft bill wns
passed authorizing tho formation of the Wash
ington and Sandy Spring Itailroad compauv.
The preliminary steps have been taken for the
organization of a company, but those
interested in this enterprise state tliat !
of course no active move will be |
made iu the direction of building the road j
until it is positively known whether this other j
project will "be carried out. A |
road running between this city and
Sandy Sprinz it i? thought would
have no chance for existence, with a parallel
competing line operated by the Pennsylvania
company and enjoying all the benefits of the
] connections and freight facilities of that great
j corporation.
Suit Against the District.
Messrs. Birney Jt Birney, for Judge Wylie,
has tiled a suit iu certiorari against the District
to set aside two certificates of assessment for
special improvements on property utthe north
east corner of 14th and M streets northwest.
Judge Wylie states that he had paid two assess
ments on this property, and never had notice
until recently of two other assessments.
A Wife Granted a Divorce.
To-day Judge Cox made a decree of divorce
in the case ef Susan Ella Cassidy against Henry
C. Cassidy. They were married June 20. 18-S0,
and she charged desertion in the early part of
1881; that he treuted her with cruelty, was an
habitual drunkard. Ac. She is given permis
sion to resume her maiden name of Davis.
Gen. Twiggs' Sword.?Mr. A. C. Myers, ex
ecutor of the estate of the lute Gen. David
| Twiggs, has made a requisition on the Secre
tary of the Treasury for the transfer of
the famous swords of that officer that have
been on exhibition here for some years, from
the Treasury department to him, under
the recent decision of the Court of
Claims. The requisition will be granted.
The swords have beeu, since 1886, in the cus
tody of the Treasurer of the United States, and
have been locked up in one of the big vaults.
Minor Appointments in the Treasury.?
Considerable difficulty has been experienced
in the appointment of laborers, elevator con
ductors, Ac., in the Treasury department
owing to the fact that these employes are in
[ elnded in the civil service list. Chief Clerk
Brackett tasted of the trouble
given by this obstacle and recom
mended to the Secretary that the rule#
I be so changed as to exclude these people from
examination. The Secretary will present the
matter at the next cabinet meeting. The
remedy for the evil will lie in a clause except
| ing these classes from the general provision as
to examinations.

Alexandria, Va.. May 21. ?Twenty-six years
ago to-day some six hundred Alexandria
soldiers left their homes, on the advance of the
Union forces to occupy this city, unJ ninety
seven died ou the battle-field or in camp during
the war. The Alexandrians dedicated, to-day.
a monument erected at the intersection of
Prince and Washington streets to their memory
und inscribed with their names.
The occasion of the dedication was made a
public holiday in the city. The schools and
public offices were closed, and during part of
the day a suspension of business was made.
Manv stores, shops and dwellings were deco
rated with flags and hangings, and the streets
were thronged with men. women and children
interested in the celebration. The monument
had been erected by Lee camp of confederate
veterans, and the celebration was made under
their auspices, but they were ably seconded and
supported in all the arrangements by a citizens'
committee bended by the mayor of the city.
Many days had been spent in the preparations,
and the morning was occupied with the la*t
touches to the engines, devices, arms, flags and
the like that were to appear in the procession.
The various assoc iations of the city were at
their meetitig places by 10 o'clock, and some
time was spent in escorting the visitors -Maurv
camp, which came bv the Alexandria and
Fredericksburg railroad, and Clinton Hatch s
camp, which came by the Washington and Ohio
railroad?to their headquarters at McBurney s
hull. The Maryland Confederate army and
uavv soietv was also met at the wharf and es
corted to MeBurney's hall, where they reported
to Col. Arthur Herbert. The Baltimore
l'vthiuiis were carried to l'aff's hall. The Wash
ington military, on their arrival, marched to
the Light infantry armory on Hoval street. At
11 o'clock the line was formed on Washington
street. th<5 right on north Cameron, at Christ
church gate, in the following order:

THE CEREMONIES AT THE MONUMENT.
Arriving at the monument the officers, in
vited guests, Ac., filled the stand which had
been erected. The crowd was called to order
und cuiue to as much order as streetcrowdsusu
! nllv do. The solemn music, "in memory eternal"
from Bach, was then given by the Marine baud.
Rev. George gt. Norton, formerly confederate
chaplain, then offered prayer. C apt. Raleigh
I Daniel, on the part of the artist, delivered
tli(j monument to the care of Leo camp. Capt.
Daniel said that this gathering was intended
to commemorate the deeds of heroes whose
memory is circumscribed by the narrow cir
cle of personal acquaintance and local
tradition. He dwelt upon the glories of the
unknown dead. Who knows the names of those
that perished at Thermopylae? Where is the
muster-roll of Valley Forge? Where the
roster of Yorktown? He gave a resume
of the cause of the late war, eulogized
Morrill and Humphreys, and other fallen
Alexandrians, and quoted the lines. ''How
rest." Ac. He delivered the monument to the
keeping of Lee camp.
The band then rendered the "Miserere." and
at the close of the music Miss Virginia Corse,
daughter of the lieutenant colonel of the 17th
Virginia regiment, pulled the cord which held
the veiling of the statue, and as the figure of
the Appomattox soldier came into view n?M
warmly greeted by the crowd.
OEM. FITZHCOH LEE,
governor of Virginia, received the unveiled
monument on behalf of Lee camp. Gov. Lea
opened by saying: "This great gathering of
noble women and brave men tells oar people in
cannon tones that though the sun went down
behind the hills and the wind behind the
clouds at Appomattox, twenty-four years ago.
the memory of the men who tell with their
face* to the foe art* still enshrined in the hearts
of their living comrade*."
He traced the life of Washington an an ex
am plar of Virginia patriotism. Then after de
scribing the 24th of May. 1%1. in Alexandria,
lie eulogized the soldiers of the town andclos. it
with ananpeal to Alexandria never to let their
memory die. A military march was then ren
dered. and the benediction of Rev. Kinlock
Nelson, of the Virginia theological seminarv.
closed the dedication exercises.
Later the visiting organizations were enter
tained at a collation 111 the basement of the
city court-house, and Lee camp gave
a lunch to a number of invited
guests at the Braddork house. The national
colors were displayed bv thousands in all sec
tions of the city, and" red, white nnd blue
adorned the Marshall house, where Ellsworth
and Jackson were killed.
THE CONFEDERATE FLAO
hung over the dome of the veteran reception
rooms on King street and a few houses were
decorated with the red. white and red of the
late confederate states. Clinton Hatcher
camp, of Leesburg, wore badges with the state
1111 a confederate flags crofted. Marr camp, of
r airfax (. ourt House, scut a considerable d> !? -
gation. with their badge, showing the confed

London. May 24. ?As the issues before the
rarnell court are becoming more and more po
litical tile atmosphere becomeg more heated.
Yesterday was as much charged with electricity
as the atmosphere outside. There was a scene
of intense passion when O'Brien insisted on de
claring that he honored the Manchester mar
tyrs and objected to the attorncv-general call
ing them murderers. Davitt and 1'arnell.
losing their habitual coutrol, called out audi
bly. "Hear! Hear!" and every Irishman honors
them.
Jt'DOE HANXEN WAS FTRtorS.
He said he insisted on them being called mur
derers in his court, and would order out anv
one. whoever he might be, who again Hud
"Hear! Hear!" This incident was made the
more piquant by a fact which has curiously es
caped attention, that Hanncn was in 1867 junior
counsel of the treasury, and as such he prose
cuted in the Manchester case.
The passion of the proceedings in court
found vent in Parnella speech in the evening
to the delegates of Irish corporations, lie
said that the tribunal was not fair or compe
tent to decide the issues and the verdict of his
tory was the only one he cared for; that the
judges were ignorant of the history of Ire
land. knew nothing of Irish character, aud
were averse to Irish aspirations, by education,
birth, and feeling, and therefore could not
Ifirly decide the political issues.

Determined Resistance Kxpected on the
Olphert Estate*.
London. May 24.?Advices from Ireland stnte
that hard times are expected to-day ou the
Olphert estates in County Donegal. The ten
ants are prepared to resist the evictors. aud
news is expected shortly of a determined tight.
A large body of police and military has gone
there. If any blood is shed to-da\" Mr. T. W
Ilussell. the unionist, who persuaded Mr. Ol

disputes, niav thauk himself for the havoc he
has wrought.
HorSINO THE WORKING CLASSES.
The national press agency has published a
pamphlet from the pen of JL\ Theodore Tood
ou the subject of the proper housing of the
working classes. It is by far the best and most
simple treatise yet published on this subject,
and will, it is hoped, give un impetus to the
bill Mr. Beid has before parliament providing
for the building of workmen's dwellings bv
corporations by means of levying a penny in
the pound upon owners of ground rents.
A foreign penni post.
Mr. Hennicker-Htaton. conservative member
of parliament for Canterbury, still continues his
agitation for a foreign penny post. He is engaged
at present in upholihug the rights of the Anglo
Indian and incidentally those of the human race
at large, to a penny postage. It is rather an
anomaly that postage to Iudia should still be
five pence, and an absurdity that so nianv tiruis
should be obliged to actuallr post their "letters
in Prance, because the postage there is onlv
half as much as from England The reason
for the present high rate is that no chancellor
of the exchequer dares face the increased ex
penditure such a plan would at first involve
Mr. Heaton insists that in h short time the in
creased mail would cover the additional ex
pense of a reduction in the rate.
MXIQRATION IX EAST INDIA.
The East Indies are not so rabidly opposed
to foreign immigrants as has been popularly
supposed, if one can judge from the reports of
of the immigration committee recently ap
pointed by parliament. The committee expect
to prove that the extent of the immigrations is
exaggerated; that the immigrants havo pro
moted trade by the introduction of new indus
tries; and that as many Englishmen emigrate
as poor foreigners immigrate. A little investi
gation has already shown that the flood of Ger
man workmen is not so large as reported

tbe people another horrible murder.
WHAT CHAKl KY liOKtt SAVS.
A Ann sjx cial from Toronto says: Charley
Long, the vouug man who claim* to have seen
and interviewed Dr. Cronin in this city, was
asked last night what he thought of the matter
since the titiding of the doctor s body, lie still
uuuiitaius the correctness of his story, and says
; that when the times comes he will go to Clii
? cago and vindicate his position. Me claims to
have bad a three years' intimacy with Cronin
and to have conversed with bun. His theory is
that after his visit to Toronto Crouiu returned
to Chicago and was murdered. Ue went over
the cireumstaucea of his meeting Cronin on
Thursday, May inh. and also on the following
Saturday, aud tells a verv plausible story of the
alleged interview. With regard to the insinua
tion that be was a tool in the hands of Crouin's
murderers to throw the authorities off the scent
Long utterly repudiates tin charges, aud claims
that any who kuows him will not believe hua
capable of such business.
EX-MINISTER UoNfield's TIEW*.
In the course of an interview on the Cronia
: case ex-Police Inspector John Bonfield said:
"From all we know of tbe case it is aafe to say
that it was either a political aasassmation or
the result of some private cause. Sow if he
was a member ot a society that w*s split up
into two factions, and tbe leaders of one fac
tion wanted him removed, does it seem prob
able that they would dare attempt
such a tiling while he had eo many
close friends who would be supposed to
know all that he knows? Killing him would
uot bury the truth. His companions would
have to be in possession of the information
which be is supposed to possess. Then, again,
suppose the eutire society had become con
vinced that it was for tbe good of all that he bo
out of the way, would they have iutrusted the
deed to such a tough as this man Black or
j Woodruff?
''Now, is it reaaonable,'" be asked, "that ?
number of promiuent men would plaoe them
selves in a position to be banged by procuring
tbe assistance of a cheap jail-bira to do tbe
work? No, sir; it would be well to go to work
and discover where each one of the suspected
persons were upon the night of May 4.
"Then there is still auother idea. Suppose
persons who wanted him removed should go to
work to convince tbe other members of tbe so
cietv that arter aU Cronin was an English sprj
that all ot his bluster about tbe misappropria
tion of Irish relief funds was nothing more or
less part of his scheme to create a disturb
ance, cause an investigation, and thus learn
the true disposal of the Irish funds here. What
would not the English government give to know
juat what funds have been raised here and for
what purpoee?"
KO HIW DEVELOPMENTS TO-DAT.
Up to noon there have been no development
in the Cronin caae. Tbe police are jealously
guarding a vacant cottage in Lake View which
was rented shortly before Dr. Cromn s death,
but hM not bet?ii occupied since. There are
rumors that blood spots have been found ia U?
bat nothing detinite can be learned.

The friends of the murdered physician are
busy preparing for the funeral, which will take
plaoe Sunday from the Cathedral of the Holy
Name, State and Superior streets. The funeral
promises to be aa immense one, as all tho
numerous societies to which the doctor bw
longed will probably participate.
