FRANCE AND HAYTI.
A Belief that an Arrangement has been
made with Legitime.
N"i* Ohlkanb. M?t 28.?The Picayune'* Pen
sacols. FU., special says: There we not want
ing here gentlemen of an observant turn which
do not hesitate to conple the arrival here of M.
Roustan. the French minister at Wash
ington. and the French frigate Roland
1 with the recent report of a treaty
between the French republic and the Legitime
Haytian government. It will be remembered
that the report of the treaty was wired from
New York on the 18th instant, and con
tained the statement that the French
republic had agreed to assist in
suppressing the Hippolvte rebellion
for a valuable concession from Legitime. Min
ister Roustan is still on board the Raland. He
will come ashore this afternoon. The confer
ence between the minister and the com
mander of the French war vessel will
then have lasted fifty-two hours. Pre
vious to the minister's arrival and
when it looked as though a meeting between
the diplomat and the mariner would be pre
vented by the health authorities, the local
French consul was advised to effect the meeting
at all hazards. It was then said that the business
between the two was of greatest importance,
of a nature in fact that could not be trusted to
the wires for transmission, hence the visit from
the minister and arrival of the ship. Minister
Roustan will leave for Washington direct this
evening, The Roland will coal here and pro
ceed to sea. The inference is that she goes to
Hayti. _
THE LEAGUE BOOKS.
They are Produced Before the Par
nell Commission.
London, May 28.?The Parnell commission
will adjourn on Friday until June 18. Permis
sion has been given to the imprisoned members
of parliament, Messrs. Condon and O'Conner,
to come to London and testify before the com
mission. Mr. Reid, of counsel for Mr. Parnell,
produced before the commission to-day the
league books which have been in possession of
Mrs. Maloney. treasurer of the Ladies' Land
league in Dublin. He stated that the Twines
has subpcenaed Mrs. Maloney and could have
procured the books before if it had desired
to.
PRESBYTERIAN MINISTERS.
The Supply of and Demand lor Them
Discussed by the General Assembly.
New York. May 28.?This morning's session
of the general assembly of the Presbyterian
church was mainly occupied by a discussion on
the reports of the standing committees on edu
cation. and that of the special committee on
the supply of and demand for ministers for
the church. Dr. McCook. of Philadelphia,
took a special interest in these reports. While
the gentleman was in favor of institutional ed
ucation he was not willing to press its accept
ance as a principle too strongly, but
he would at the same time insist that
the laws governing institutions and the admis
sion of ministers to the church be such that
young men would become ministers mainly by
their efforts. Mr. McCook disagreed with many
of the recommendations of the standing com
mittee and would prefer to see appointed a
new committee to report to the next assembly
"After a thorough inquiry into the whole mat
ter." said the speaker, "I am constrained to say
that I like this committee well enough, and I
believe that they are hard, honest, and con
scientious workers, but there are too many
theological professors on it. They are very
good men. no doubt, but they require a too
lotty standard."
DR. HAMLIN WANTS MORE MTNISTF.ftl.
Rev. Dr. T. S. Hamlin, of Washington, held
that the report presented many facts, but
lacked in its recommendations. He thought a
committee would be required to take up the
work just where Dr. Morris, the chairman ;
of the standing committee, left off, and '
carry it to its logical conclusions. We must
hasw more mumters. Our church is deplora- '
bly in need of them, and we need tuetti with
or without diplomas.
No {Sympathy for the J*rlnce.
London. May 28.?At a meeting to-day of the
London county council a resolution was pro
posed expressing the sympathy of that body
with the I'rince and Princess of Wales on ac
count of their disrespectful treatment by the
mob on Saturday last while witnessing the fire
men's parade. Mr. John Burns, the well
known socialist member of the council, ob
jected to the resolution, and the matter was
dropped.
Telegraphic Briefs.
A marriage between the Due D'OrleaRS and
the Frincess Marguerite de Chartres has been
arranged.
The royal comission on treatment of prison
ers has deciden to examine Mr. Harrington on
the subject of his experience in Irish prisons.
An east bound freight train on the Pennsyl
vania railroad ran into the Parkersburg con
struction tram, east of Christiana, Pa., this
morning. None of the train hands were in
jured.
Executions for ?8,327.25 have been issued
against the Mount Joy, Pa., gas company, the
principal creditor being the Lowe manufactur
ing company. No statement of assets filed.

GOrXG TO BROOKLYN.

WHIT* HOCSX CALLERS TO-DAY?SEVERAL CON
GRESSMEN AND A COLORED BISHOP AXONO
THEM?COLORED MEN SATISFIED? MINISTERS OF
THE CHURCH OF THE NEW JERUSALEM.
The President was occupied with Indiana
affair* this morning. He bad a long talk with
Representatives Owen and Cheadle and two or
three other Indiana politicians. The time
taken for this, however, did not come oat of
the regular reception hoar. They had a special
appointment with him. and the interview was
over before 11 o'clock, the reception hoar.
Senator Plumb and Representative Ander
son, of Kansas, with Gen. Conor, of Utah, had
inverviews before the usual hour.
THE PRESIDENT WILL REVIEW THE BROOKLYN
PARADE.
Senator Hiscock and Secretary Tracy walked
up the steps to the library arm in arm just
before 11 o'clock. They came to see the Presi
dent about going to Brooklyn to review the
p?rade ou Thursday.
The President had been uncertain about ac
cepting the invitation, but this morning he
announced his determination. He told Secre
tary Tracy that he would go to Brooklyn to
morrow, review the parade on Thursday and
return to Washington on Friday.
Nojfurther arrangements have been made for
the trip than that the President and Secretary
Tracy will leave at 3:45 to-morrow.
A COLORED BISHOP.
Bishop A. Grant, of San Antonia, Tex., who
had just come from the meeting of the bishops
of the A. M. E. church at New York, to appoint
a successor to Mr. Townshend. the Indianapolis
minister recently taken from his flock to till a
position in the general land office, called at the
hite House to talk with the President in a
social sort of way about the condition of the
negro race and other things in general.
The bishop said to a 8tar reporter that if
the President asked liim about the matter lie
would sneak favorably of the .candidacy of
Cunev, the Colorado man. who wants to be
collector at Galveston. Otherwise he would
not talk of the offices. Ho said
he had talked with Gen. Harrrison at
Indianapolis and was pleased with his views on
the race question. Since, some of the colored
people thought that the race w as to be ignored,
but the appointment of Lynch and Townshend
had dispelled their fears. In Texas, he
said, the politi:al state of affairs with
the negro is not as bad as in some other sec
tions. He said he did not think the President
could constitutionally interfere with the affairs
in any section of the country, and that true
public sentiment and spread of intelligence
would adjust things.
TWO QUIET WORKERS.
Representative Cannon, with the usual secre
tive smile on his amiable face, slipped into the
Presidents's private office and had a talk with
him. and then slipped out again. Never a word
did he have to say, but his smile was more se
cretive and more expansive as he came from
the interview. On the steps he met Represent
ative Farquhar, just going up. The two quiet
workers looked each other in the eyes in a
knowing way.
?'When do you go home," asked Farquhar.
"Oh, after a while," whs the reply.
"Well. I guess a man who is getting appoint
ments every day ain't in a hurry."
All tho Congressmen are a little bit jealous
of Cannon's way of getting things. He and
Lodge, of Massachusetts, have the reputation
of getting all they want, with a promise of
more.
Farquhar is a good worker, but not quite so
successful.
HE ACCEPTS.
Judge Herron who has just boen appointed
district attorney for the southern district of
Ohio, called on the President to announce that
he accepted the position and to thank the
President for the appointment. There had
been some doubt about Lis acceptance.
Mr. Habercom. the new fifth auditor, who
has been a week in office, was among tho
callers who were not "seeking anything."
Representative Houk had a friend he wanted
to introduce. Senator Maoderson was on a
similar mission. The friends had with them
an ambition to hold a public trust.
Representatives-elect Evans. Ewart and Kin
say had friends they wanted to talk about, and
they held the President's ear for a fair allot
ment of the hours for callers.
Joseph A. Nuges and Mr. T. H. Borden, of
Brooklyn, called on business.
No cabinet meeting was held to-day on ac
count of Mr. Blaine's trip with his guests to
Mt. Vernon.
swedenborqian callers.
At 12 o'clock, by special appointment, the
President shook hands with about three hun
dred Swedenborgians in tho East room. Nearly
all those attending the convention of the new
church, including many ladies, were present,
and the President showed them marked re
spect by shaking hands more deliberately and
letting the reception protract itself longer than
is usual.
llev. Cliauucey Giles of Philadelphia made a
little speech stating that they were the smallest
church organization in the country, but earnest
in this work, and were pleasid to have this op
portunity to ?[reet thp President and to express
the hope that he might bo guided by a higher
Sower in the performance of his responsible
uties.
The President responded, saying he was glnd
to meet them and that the sect was not so small
as not to be kuown by him.
General Muesey then introduced each of those
assembled and the President shook hands with
them.
SECRETARY BLAINE AND OEN. LEW WALLACE,
When the President returned to his private
office he received Secretary Blaine and Gen.
Lew Wallace, who were to talk about the
Haytian commission affair.
Gen. Bain, of Illinois, and Gen. Farrar were
the other late callers.
SUDDEN ILLNESS OF A CALLER.
During the morning Mr. H. G. Dodge, of
Bar Harbor. Me., was waiting patiently for an
audience with the President. He has been in
Washington since the 4th of March, and has
been ill. He got out of his sick bed
to drive to tho White House,
When the receiving honr had expired he had
not yet seen the President, so he saw Private
Secretary Iialford. Tho interview was brief.
When he left the room ho tottered.
When in the middle of the corri
dor he fell heavily to the floor, unconscious.
He was picked up by the attendants and cared
for kindly until he recovered. He was then
assisted to his carriage, which was waiting for
him at the door.
SENATOR QUAY ON OHIO MEN.
Senator Quay has been more than ordinarily
good humored during the last few days. He is
pleased with Gilkeson's appointment as second
controller, and laughs thankfully about the
way Alphonso Hart's Ohio friends had. as he
alleged, euchred him out of the solicitor
ship of internal revenue. "These Ohio
men beat the deuce." said Quay?
It seems almost incredible," he continued, "'but
one of the candidates for the surveyorship of
customs in Philadelphia, who had the strongest
indorsements of all tne applicants, was actually
discovered to be a voter in Major McKinley's
district in Ohio. He had never voted in Penn
sylvania at all. but he came right to the front
in the usual artless Ohio way, and was mighty
near getting there." ?
Who this inturprising Ohioan was Senator
Quay did not tell, but this story in illustration
of the modesty of Ohioan's was considered a
good joke by those present. Major McKinley
will probably feel good enough over the ap
appointmcnt of one of his constituents to a
district judgeship to let this joke of the Sena
tor's pass.
post-office day.
After all the other callers had departed from
the White House, Postmaster-General Wana
maker passed into the President's private of
fice. This was Post-Office dav, and he had
some appointments and other little matters to
talk with the President about.
It is thought that the Washington city post
mastership received some attention, with the
view of determining whether or not Mr. Ross'
term should be allowed to expire before select
ing his successor.
THE HAYTIAN COMMISSION.
The appointment of Gen. Lew Wallace and
Gen. Beverly Tucker commissioners to look
after American interest* in Hayti and their
immediate withdrawal has caused considerable
talk.
At the White House the only explanation
given wa* that the announcement was prema
ture. It i* understood that the commissions
were made oat at the State department and
signed by the President in a
perfunctory way. Afterward it wa*
called to the attention of the President that
Gen. Tucker had been charged a* one of the
conspirator* in the assassination of President
Lincoln; that he had been a political exile in
Canada daring those excited time*, Ac.
The reminder of these thing*, it i* said,
caused the withdrawal of the appointment*.
Later the commission is expected to be ap
pointed, with Oen. Tucker's name left oil.
WALKING FOR A WEEK.
The Second Day of the Female Pedes
? trlan Contest.
The second day of the seventy-two hour walk
ing match at Kenwn'i theater began at 13
o'clock to-day. Eleven of the twelve starter*
resumed their weary march. Miss Henderson
(No. 6.) who left the track yesterday, failed to
put in an appearance.
At the end of the first twelve hours of the
race at midnight last night the following score*
had been made: Evan*. 53 mile* 20 lap*: To
bias, 49 mile* 12 lap*; Arnett, 44 mile* 18 lap*;
Rose. 44 miles 8 lap*; Blakeley, 41 mile* 12
Up*; Indian Prince**, 41 mile* 10 lap*; Mac
beth, 39 miles 20 laps; Fleming. 39 mile*; Jef
ferson. 36 mile* 9 laps; Jeffries. 29 miles 14
laps; Killbury, 26 mile*, 12 lap*; Hender*on,
19 mile* and 18 lap*.
THACK SCXNE8 TO-DAY.
Miss Killbury (No. 5), who wa* looked upon
yesterday as a likely winner, was forced to
leave the track early last evening with only
26}^ miles to ber credit, on account of illness,
was on the track again to-day, contrarv to the
orders of her phvsician. She is by far the fastest
walker on the track and would make a fine
record if her health were better. She started
in to-day to make up for lost time, and walked
as fast as others ran and walked. Her first
mile was made in 9 minutes 11 seconds It
is a question, however, if she will be able to
bold out.
THE LEADER.
Miss Evans, who made over fifty miles yes
terday, showed no effect to-day of her hard
work. 8he was up at 6 o'clock this morning
and took a walk to limber up. She runs like a
deer, and although her pace to-day was not as
fast as yesterday, she ran a great deal, and
mnde the first mile in 9 minutes.
She wears buckskin moccasins covered bv
heavy stockings, and her feet are as yet in ex
cellent condition. She announced to-day that
she would make her hundredth mile before
midnight. She is a dark horse in the race, and
the pace that she cut out and has kept up is quite
remarkable.
Tobias (No. 81, the winner of the Baltimore
match, is sure to get a place, as she is a splendid
walker and has plenty of endurance. She sel
dom breaks into a run. but swings along at a
fiteadv gait, which tells as the hours slip by.
Her first mile to-day was in fourteen minutes.
She is not such a rapid walker as Killbury, but
her stride is not so wearing. Tobias said to
day that she felt iu good condition, but "her
outside leg hurt a little bit."
A VERY COMELY LITTLE CONTESTANT
and one who promises to astonish some people
before the close of the race, despite a weak
ankle, is Miss Jeffries. No. 1. She had less than
30 miles marked on her score dial at noon to-day.
This was owing to stomach trouble vesterdav
but she felt better to-day, and said that if she
could hold out until to-morrow night she would
let out a few links and rapidly enlarge her
score. She has been content to walk steadily
thus far, but slio is a sprinter and intends to
start after the speedy Pittsburg maiden, Miss
Evans, if she can get into condition.
LADY MACBETH,
(No. 3), to all appearances weighs just as
much as she did at noon yesterday, and
has Just as much trouble with her rheu
matism. She tried to kill the latter
by running to-duv once or twice, but
about 10 yards sufficed to make the walk
more advisable. She is a stayer and is bound
to get a place.
One or two of the others limped a little and
showed that their work was no fun for them.
THIS AFTERNOON'S 8COBE.
At 2:40 this afternoon the score was: Jeffries,
36; Jefferson. 40. 15 laps; Macbeth. 48, 7 laps;
Princess, 51, 1 lap; Killbury, 38, 8 laps; Hen
derson. 19; Blakely, 51. 5 laps; Tobias, 60. 4
laps; Arnett, 52, 5 laps; Roze, 54, 10 laps;
Evans, 66, 7 laps; Fleming, 49, 6 laps.

TALKING OF INSURANCE.
The Convention of Mutual Life and
Accident Underwriters.
A OATHERINO AT TBI NATIONAL HOTEL?PRESI
DENT ELDRIDGE's ANNUAL ADDBES8? Lraisn
noN asked rom the district?tse list or
MEMBERS?A SHAD-HAKE TBI* EVENING.
The "ordinary" at the National hotel was
filled with chaira this morning, arranged in
formal row*. There was a csrpetcd platform
at the aouth end, and in he rear of this plat
form a largo mirror was draped with the
American colors. The occasion was the four
teenth annual convention of the Mutual Life
and Accidental Underwriters of America. At
10 o'clock, the hour of assembling, the chair*,
or about a huudred of them, were filled with
members of the convention. A dozen or more
of the chair* were occupied by wives of dele
gates who have accompanied them to this city.
On the platform sat Mr. Geo. D. Eldridge. of
this citv. and at his side was District Commis
sioner Douglass.
COMMISSIONED DOUGLASS* ADDRESS OT WELCOME.
Commissioner Douglass said:
'?Gerdkmen: It is with great pleasure as the
representative of the citizens of Washington
that I welcome you to this city. It seems
especially fit that the representative* of one of
the most important business interests of the
country should congregate here to deliberate
upon its general welfare. The institution that
extends help to man or woman in times of
deepest distress is certainly deserving of pub
lic esteem. When an individual does this we
call him a benefactor. The man who started
the first insurance company in London more
than a century since would have been amazed
indeed if he could have imagined the marvelous
j progress and present perfection of the system,
j 1 wondered as I came here this morning
whether some genius would not organize u
company for the insurance of official life. Just
think what a boom that branch of the business
would have every four years in this vicinity.
It has occurred to me some times that a presi
dential fourth year was a sort of political leap
year when the other side are privileged to pro
pose to fill the offices. At this season when
ever you tap the vocabulary of a resident Wash
| ingtonian yon will be likely to hear something
; about our beautiful city; and in this spirit I
am moved to congratulate you that you have
I come at the right time to see for yourselves
i how the city looks in her new gown "of green.
! Hoping that your convention may be morel
than satisfactory, and that the visit of each
one of you may prove a lasting memory of
pleasure. I again welcome you to Washington.''
Mr. Geo. A. LiU htield. of liof ton, responded
to Mr. Douglass in a neat address.
ANNUAL ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT ELDRIDGE.
The president. Mr. Eldridge. then delivered
his annnal address. Mr. Eldridge, in opening
his address, referred to tho meeting of the
' convention in this city ten years ago. when the
deliberations were presided over by the late
Alexander Gardner, who then congratulated
tho convention that the associations then rc p
resented and those of a similar character
showed over t4.:7.0<>0.000 of insurance
in force, and that they had gathered up
and paid to widows and orphans over
$13,213.8'J7. "Think you,''said Mr. Eldridge,
"that ho would that day have given credence
i to one who should have predicted that in less
than ten years a session of that same body
. would be held in this same city to consult a- to
| the interests of a business that shows ^ii.OOO.
1)00.000 of insurance outstanding, that has paid
over ?2jO,OuO.UUO to widows and orphans, and
that in the single year just passed lias paid
three times the amount which had been paid
during the intire existence of the business to
1879."
Mr. Eldridge discusacd varions points of in
terest to the convention, and the points of dif
ference between the legal reserve company and
the assessment company pure and simple.
Speaking on tho subject of legislation, he said,
in regard to
INSURANCE LEGISLATION IN TIIE DISTRICT OF CO
LUMBIA:
"Whatever may be our individual differences
of opinion as to the advisability or possibility
of national legislation for the regulation of life
insurance where companies operate without the
states of their incorporation. I believe that we
can have but one opinion as to the desirability
of such legislation as shall bring the trans
action of the business in this District under
regulations and restrictions that shall protect
its inhabitants against the frauds which now
prey upon them. Driven from their lairs iu
surrounding states, the wild-cat insurance com
panies here find refuge and llourish?a menace
not alone to our people, but as well
to those communities upon which
they can prey from this po.nt.
The national Congress is as well as our
local legislature, but one in whose choice
we have no part. You elect the men who make
our IhWs, and to whom we look for the remedy
of this great evil. Von have driven, in large
measure, from your own states the burden and
menace which now weigh upon us; cannot you
do something to relic \e oar community? 1 am
not. per se. an advocate of multiplied super
vision; but I cannot question, from what 1 have
seen about me, that there is need in this Dis
trict that the supervision of insurance should
be placed in the hands of some one who is
m.iuc responsible for the execution of the laws,
and who, unweighted by the cares of other de
partments of the District government, will have
tho time to discharge his duties."

of Massachusetts avenue and 12th street the

tacsasvou."* The major then directed them
to stand out of the way aud they refused, giv

A Rcjcsfiso Match fob f 100.?Upon the first
indication of the sky brightening yesterday af
ternoon the small number of persons standing
in front of So. 3055 M street increased to quite
a fair-sized gathering, attracted there by the
fact that Frank Hunt, of Philadelphia, and J.
Bainbridge. of Baltimore, young colored men,
would run a race to the navy-yard and return
for a purse of ?100. The contestants were in
structed to follow the car track and return by

on enlarged and somewhat mixed crowd
Bainbridge was in the lead, which be main
tained to the finish, making the distance in one
hour and sixteen minutes, which he declared
