NEWS FROM MEXICO.
Congress Said to Iluve Discussed the
Cession of Lower California;
Cirr of Mexico* via Galveston. May 29.?It
is rumored that congress, in secret session, is
?liscussiiig the question of ceding Lower Cali
fornia to the United States. It is believed,
however, that ihe rumor is groundless, and is
merely a stratagem of the conservatives.
ihe Senate has approved of the proposed ex
it nsive coloni/ ition contract with Senor
Raniiez Varela, off? ring him a cash bonus for
bona lid" immigrants for the states of Vera

TO TRY DAWSON'S .MIKDERKR.
A Charge That t lie .lury Box Had Been
Tampered With.
Charleston, S. C., May 29.?The jury to try
T. I;. Me Dow, for the murder of F. \Y. Dawson,
editor of the Ai ts ami Courier, in March last,
was drawn to-day. Out of thirty-six in the
panel fourteen are negroes, a portion of
names unprecedented since 1S7G. when the
whites obtained control of the state govern
ment. Some of the frn nds of th-murdered man
charge that the Jury box had been tampered
with in the interest of the murderer. The
1 "["portion of negroes on juries since
in<?> have been four to six in each panel. It is
known here that shortly before Dawfon was
Slam he had incurred the enmity ol most of
the h ading colored preachers. In an editorial
written by him he urged the governor to par
don the n.groes in Pick, ns county under sen
tence of death for lynching a white man who
had raped a negro girl. It was intimated in
the article, that while virtue wrs not held as
high among colored women as white w omen,
the principle was the same, and the chastitv of
colored women should be gtmrded as jealously
against ruffians us if their skins were white.
Soon after the publication of this article the
negro preachers called a meeting and decided
to boycott Dawson and his paper. Only three
ot the leading colored ministers refused to
join in the boycott. Ihe others denounced
him and his paper in the pulpit and withdrew
th? ir church notices from its advertising col
umns. 1 he presence of such an unusual num
ber ol mgr... - in the jury to try this case looks
to Dawson friends like an organize d effort to
a. quit McDow. The jury commissioner is n
mulatto. The . xcitement here is intense. The
trial comes off about June 27.

a tie. ide.Pv weak tone which carried everything

dropped to BO on a comparatively "moderate
volume of business. In the regular list Chi
cago gas an.l Missouri Pacific showed most
weakness, but their loss was confined to per

en. eked and some little recovery was made,
but the movi ments for the remainder of the

comparatively quiet and no further feature
marked the trading. At 11 o'clock the market
was only fairly active, and rather heavy, gen

THE ANTI-MAHONE REPUBLICANS.
A lew minutes before 1 o'clock a long line of
men came out of the Treasury department
and moved westward like a snake
to the White House. Col. Brady and
Ex-Gov. Cameron led the procession, made
up of 150 Virginia anti-Mahono republicans
come as a delegation to present their views on
the subject of politics in the Old Dominion.
They were drawn up in line in
the " East room and waited. The
l'reuidcnt appeared promptly at 1 o'clock,
and shook hands with the hundred people who
had come to see him. When this had been
done Col. It.'.idy, Gen. Cameron and Geu. Y. I>.
(ironer advanced upon him and were made
known by Capt. Densniore.
Gen. Cameron said that thev had come from
Virginia to lay before the President their opin
ions and their propositions with a view to pro
moting harmony in the ranks of the republican
party in their state.
The President told them that he was very
much pressed, having made arrangements to
go to Brooklyn at 3:45 this afternoon.
He would be glad to receive the address, but
wished that they would postpone their speech
making to another time, win u he could meet
them more privately. This satisfied the
gentlemen who fell bac k and let the line of
delegates advance. Gen. Groner intro
duced each one by name, and
when the President had (shaken
hands with all they formed again outside of the
mansion and marched back to the Ebbitt
House.
DEPARTURE OF THE PRESIDENT.
At 3:30 the President, aecompanicd by Sec
retary Tracy and Mr. Halford. were driven to
the Pennsylvania depot, where they em
barked on the Congressional limited, leav
ing at 3:15 for New York. They will
arrive there betwe< u it and 10 o'clock to-night,
and will stop at the home of Gen. Knapp. ill
Brooklyn.
The President will review the parade to
morrow, and as soon as it has passed he will
take the limited for home. The party will
probably reach here by 10 o'clock to-morrow
night.

The committee then called on the President as

The following is the address to Gen. Mahone

committee, over which you preside, the sub

sincere desire to ascertain some fair basis on
which the ltepublicansof Virginia can be united
against a common foe, and we are willing to
sacrifice everything but principle to attain this
end.
it is proposed that the committee over which
you presitle shall appoint two representatives
"to meet two gentleman similarly selected by
that branch of the Virginia party which I rep
resent, and that the four persons so chosen
shall be authorized upon disagreement to select
a lifth republican, to have voice and vote in
their deliberation.
Next, that the committee, so jointly formed,
shall be empowered to arrange and give notice
for republican meetings throughout Virginia,
on a date to bo agreed upon, and all on tho
same date, at which the republican voters
shall be called on to organize their
own meetings, elect the chairman and secretary
thereof and choose the delegates to a state con
vention; the time, place and representatives of
such convention having been previously noti
fied to the public by responsible
notice from the joint committee. The
meeting for the election of delegates to be
called in the same way throughout the state, as
well as at the same time, that is: Either all
shall be mass meetings, or all precinct or
ward meetings, whether in the cities, towns
or counties. It shall be further agreed
and stipulated that the chairman and secretary
elected by such meeting shall certify the dele
gates elected, and that such certificate shall
constitute the credentials of delegates to the
temporary organization of the state conven
tion. anil that the roll shall be made up on
such certificates by tho joint committee, who
shall also have charge of the building in which
the state convention is held, and admission
thereto. And further, that wheu a state con
vention so chosen shall have assembled and
shall have been called to order by a person
selected by the said joint committee, then the

THE WITHDRAWN APPOINTMENTS.
A Talk with Beverly Tucker-His Con
nection with the Confederacy..
The Haytian commission muddle is still un
settled. The appointments were undoubtedly
withdrawn on account of representations made
to the President associating Gen. Beverly Tucker
with the assassination of Lincoln and other
conspiracies. The appointment of General
Tucker was at the instance of Mr. Blaine, and
the fact that no voices were raised against the
appointment of the same man to places of
distinction by Presidents Hayes and Gar
field, leads to the suspicion that the
purpose now is to cast some sort of reflection
on the Secretary of State, and to place him in the
light of being "turned down" by the President.
"ie state department and at the
White Housesilence is persevered in as to the
mutter. It is still under consideration, how
ever, and is being considered with relation to
the charge made h,gainst General Tucker.
The question that withholds the commissions
is not whether or not the commission should
?v'.'tJH' appointed, but is that of the propriety
of (Jen. 1 ticker's appointment.
Mr. Blaine, it is understood, is prepared to
maintain himself in the selection. He sent for
a copy of Gen. Tucker's disclaimer, published
during Johnson's administration, and is. it
is understood. prepared to vindicate
the appointment. It is likely, however, that
nothing will be done in the matter until after
the President's return from New York. \t
the next cabinet meeting the matter will doubt
less be considered.
WHAT GEN. TUCKER SAYS.
A Star reporter found Gen. Beverly Tucker
this morning at breakfast with his brother.
Judge Randolph Tucker, at Chambcrlin's. '-I
have not seen Mr. Blaine," he said. "He was
down the river yesterday, you know, and I
have not been to the State department to-dav
so 1 know nothing about the situation. 1 do'
not know the reason for the withdrawal of
tin appointments of the commission nor what
is contemplated in the matter. It would bo
only surmising to attempt to discuss it, and
I cannot, of course, do that."
HIS CONNECTION WITH THE CONFEDERACY.
"As to the sensational stories about my being
associated with conspiracy and the like attacks
upon me, the whole tiling is without an iota of
truth. All that was answered in my address to
the people during Johnson's administration.
The only positions I ever held under the con
federate government were a perfectly legiti
mate mission abroad to purchase quarter
master's stores and a mission to Canada to ex
change cotton for ineat. I had nothing what
ever to do with any of the military opt rations
of the confederacy, their guns, or their soldiers,
or their military plans in any way, and I was
in absolute ignorance of tllem. I was in
Canada to trade cotton for meat, pound for
pound. President Lincoln and Secretary
Seward were aware of mv mission; knew its
character and all about it.
I'.Y PERMISSION or PRESIIlENT LINCOLN.
President Lincoln issued u permit, "under
the Treasury regulations." for Mr. W. G. Ford,
of this city, to go to Canada to trade with me.
The permit was written by Mr. Lincoln but
tour or tivc mouths before his#assassination.
He wrote it while in a barber-shop, resting the
paper on his hat while he wrote. I had the
permit and would have it now but that it was
left with my other valuable papers in the bank
of Baron, l'orbs A: Co., in Mexico. You know I
was in Mexico during the last vcars of Maxi
milian's reign, and left with Marshal Bazaine.
When 1 1< ft I placed a trunk with my papers in
the bank. Mr. Lmilio Baron, the president,
died snid 1 never got them again. But Mr
Ford is living in New York, 1 belie ve. Mr.
Lincoln gave this permit but about four months
before his death. Do you think it likely that
1 should want him killed?
PROOF OF CONFIDENCE AND TRUST.
"I camo back to this country during Mr.
Grant's administration, and have been here
since. W hen I went to San Francisco Secre
tary Sherman and Secretary Evarts intrusted
to me an important service. President Gar
field appointed me ore of the board of visitors
to the naval academy. There was no crv
against me at that time."
AIMED AT BLAINE.
"The fact appe ars." broke in Judge Randolph
Tucker, "that some of the enemies of Mr.
Blaine are trying to hit at him over my
brothers shoulder. It is a feeble attempt to
hurt Mr. Blaine, 1 presume."
WHILE IN CANADA.
General Tucker said that while in Canada he
and Mr. Clay were in the same house, and he
often saw Clay and Thompson, but
that he- heard nothing at all
of the business of those gentlemen and pur
posely avoided learning. Never a word passed
between them on the subject of Mr. Clay s mis
sion and he, Tucker, would always leave if any
one called to see Clay on business when he was
in the room.
lie did not know or suspect, or care to know
what Clay and Thompson were doing. He had
no interest in the military or political in
trigues. Ilis mission was that of trading for
Uleats.

THK ZOOLOGICAL PARK.
Its Location Dccidcri I'pon by the Com
mlssioners.
IT WILL COMPRISE ABOrT 150 A. KES ALONO BOCK
CBEEK BETWEEN WOODLEt ASl> KLINGLE
BOADS?TEE BOUNDARIES AS SOW PBOroSED?
COJOTEMSa WITH OWNERS.
The location of the proposed zoological nark
has been settled by the commission charged
by act of Congress with the establishment of
tlie park.
The site selected is practically the same as
that originally recommended to Congress, lying
along Rock Creek, just above Woodlev parli.
The lines of the proposed park have not been
definitely fixed, bat the general location is
practically settled.
The commission is composed of Secretory
Langley, of the Smithsonian institution; (sec
retary Noble, of tlie Interior department, and
Mr. ^Douglas*. the president of the board of
District Commissioners.
The act of Congress to establish the park au
thorized the commission to purchase for the
purpose not less than 100 acres of land along
Rock creek, between Massachusetts avenue ex
tended and the military road running'west
from Brightwood.
EX AMI VINO THE GROUND.
Ihe Commissioners viewed the whole region
included within these limits with the ntiuost
care, rhey walked over it all the way from
Woodlev I?tne road to the Military road.
''ey did not examine the ground below the
Woodlev road with so much care be
cause they were satisfied upon consulting
experts that the prices of land there
made it practically impossible to locate
the park below that road. Besides the topo
graphy and general character ol the region
below Woodley park was less suitable to tho
purposes for which ground was wanted than
that above.
They obtained information regarding tho
land within the limits of choice from all
sources available, and called upon the
property owners to name the lowest
prices _ for their respective holdings,
lo this invitation most of the owners responded.
It was found, as a Star reporter was informed
to-day, that the prices asked above Klii ,-le
roudwere relatively much higher than the
prices asked for property between the Klingle
and the \\ oodl^y roads.
Ihe reporter was told. too. that the owners
ol the property included within the site se
lected evinced a much more liberal spirit than
those who owned property above.
The extreme suitableness of the site and the
desire of tlie Commissioners to locate tin park
as near the city as possible, so that it might be
not only a natural zoological garden, but also
a poor man's park, coupled w ith tin possibility
ol acquiring the land at more reasonable pric.'s
than elsewhere influenced the choice of the
Commissioners.
MAKING OFFERS TO OWNERS.
The Commissioners have obtained the opin
ion of disinterested real estate experts as to the
value of the land in the whole region explored,
but more particularly of that which has been
selected. They have definitely decided upon
the price that, in their judgment thev will be
I warranted in paying for ea li piece ol "ground
I and they are now proceeding to make oilVrs to
owners of the property included within the
lines they have bid down.
Mr. Hornaday. the secretary of the commis
sion. who. by direction of the Commissioners.
Ins conferred informally with some of
property owners already, told a
SfAB reporter that bv several he
has been met in the most liberal spirit
Some owners have already accept, d the prices
offered by the commission subject to the con
ditions of the act of congress establishing tho
pans.
flr3t own, r approached was Mr. II. D.
Walbridge, w ith whom an agreement iti.-fac
torv both to the Commissioners and to himself
was soon made. It is the intention of the Com
mission to take about 15 acres of the Walbridire
property.
THE BOUNDS OF THE PARK.
The boundary lines of the proposed park have
not been finally and absolutely fixed, but they
have been settled upoik iu a general way.
Tho site selected includes be
tween 150 and 100 acres and comprises
one of the most picturesque sections of the
Bock ( reek valley. The bounds as proposed
are about as follows:
Starting at the northeast corner of the col
ored cemetery the line will probably run
along tho north side of tho cemeterv,
taking in a narrow strip. After crossing
Koek creek, it will take in a portion of
the HOUthe.iHt comer of Woodley park and
will cross the Evans' property so as to take be
tween 85 and 'JO acres of the 'lower poriion of
that property.
The line will probably be extended to the
Klingle road at a point about 700 feet west of
the K ingle bridge. Thence it will follow the
Klingle road across the creek, two
thirds of the way from where
it crosses the creek to 1'ierce's Mill road It
will run along the south side of the creek
through the Walbridge property taking a
strip about four hundred "feet wide
striking the quarry road on a direct line with
the old quarry, and thence diagonally from the
quarry across to the starting point at the cor
ner of the cemet< rv.
A WOODLEV PARK ENTRANCE.
The Messrs. Waggauian, in behalf of the
owners of Woodley park, have offered to the
commission as a gift a parcel of nearly six acres
of land beginning at Woodley bridge and ex
tending from that point to the end of the ridge
which rises between Carlisle avenue and the
creek.
The land thus off. red will afford an entrance
to the park from Woodley road if bucli is de
sired.
THE OWNERS.
The 150 or 1G0 acres within the limits de
scribed is owned principally by Dr.
Holt, Pacificus Ord, II. S. Wal
bridge. and the Evans heirs. There are
several parcels iu the vicinity of the old aban
doned quarry held by various owners.
In the case of some of the owners no agree
m< nt has been reached, and it is probable that
the Commission, rs will have to resort to con
demnation proceedings in a number of cases
The appropriation to purchase the laud does
not become available until .July 1. A survey
has to be made and tho work ot examining
titles will cause some delay.

WATER METERS IX HofElA
i I*rotr?t of th?- Hotel Proprietor* A Con
ference with the District Comaktioittn.
The Commimomti this afternoon gave *
hearing to the hotel men of this city, who
called to protest against the enforcement of
the Commissioner*' order of November 7.
18*9, whieh provided for the placing
of water meter* in hotel*. The hotel men
were represented by Campbell Carrington. e?.j..
thelr counsel. who after explaining the object
of the conference called attention to the law
of 1870 governing the question. He said
that the law had remained dorni.int for nineteen
years, ami should not at this late- <lay be resur
rected. lit- called atteution to the fact that
there were no water meters and that it would
l>e a grout injustice to impose upon the hotel
men ?n experiment which would not cost the
District a cent.
He finished l>v saving that he hoped, if the
Commissioners decided to enforce the law. they
would at Want give them tune to go toColi
gr? s* and have the law r< pc iled.
Mr. I toe se lie. of the Arlington, said tli.it the
law wuj. unearthed bv the late Colonel Ludlow,
who. together with this, did a gT< .it many otln r
things which made the people of the District
uncomfortable.
Maj. Raymond replied that he must be as bad
as Col. Ludlow, for he was following in his
footsteps and proposed t<< continue to do so i.s
fur as carrying out the law was concerned.
Mr. lio* seilt; S. i 1 that water ni. t rs wore
unsatisfactory whenever tried, ami further
that it was a blue law aud not intende d to
operate at this late day when the water system
had so improved.
Major Kavmoud replied that this was not so;
th it he had a long li-t of cities wher? water
meters were in use. and the results were very
satisfactory; in fact, the meters gave general
satisfaction.
Mr. Staples, of Willard's. asked Major Kav
moud if he thought tlio introduction of wate r
mete rs would be a saving to the hotel men.
He answered that he thought it woulJ.
Mr. Staples then wante d to know why the
District wanted them put in thin, and Major
Raymond replied that it was not luoue-y they
wanted to save, but water.
Afier another argument by Mr. Carrington
the Commissioners promised to look into the
matter thoroughly. Among the hotel ni? u
{?resent were Messrs. Staples, of Wil
ard's; Spofford, of tlie lliggs: Selden. of the
Metropolitan: lioesse He.of the Arlington:! rosby
of the National; Woriuli y. of Wormley's; Long,
of Chamberlains; Hoadley, of the Itclvedere;
