IFItOM A STAFF COBBXSrOXPEXT. Harbisbubg, August 6. Two monstrous white wings seemed to flap lazily in the air just over the Lochiel Hotel, this evening. A real picture of peace gave birth to the vision, and later in the night there was a doubt as to whether it was a mere demon stration of the occult, for it seemed as though doves fluttered in through the win dows of every room of the hotel and perched upon the grand staircase railing overlook ing the crowded lobby down stairs. If they were not to be seen, they could be heard cooing. Everybody heard them. Peace be came universal. First to Sigh for a Flsbt. General Prank Beeder, of Eastern, was the first to snort as a political warhorse will and sigh for a fight. He deftly tried to knock a chip off Walter Lyon's shoulder by allowing it to be announced that he would be a candidate for temporary chairman of to-morrow's convention. About sundown a dove spotted the General, flew straight to his bosom, and the gallant-looking gentle man clapped his coat over the bird, and holding np his other hand, cooed: "I'm no' candidate, I'm for peaeeJi - . Na'Antl-Trnst PlanBTKeeded. There are some political carpenters who are not satisfied with the architecture of Bepnblican platforms in late years, so they came here to-day just a few of them, how ever, with keen-edged saws and sharpened axes ready to make a change, and it was rather a startling innovation they proposed. It was not a double-nailed plank, or an ad ditional step to reach the platform, but it was a fancy turret, with the signboard "Against Trusts." But on each of the saws there soon perched a dove. Then the axes fell powerless. The carpenters hadn't the heart to murder peace. Only a Suspicion of n Row. Still another vague suspicion of a fight floated in the air when the country deie , gates began discussing the temperance "feat- ures of to-morrow's platform. One man wanted a local option plank inserted, so that the ultra-temperance counties could be paci fied without involving tbe large cities of the State. But suddenly he and a handful of followers became charmed by the seductive billing of a whole bevy of doves. Then Major Sam Loesch, of Schuylkill county, tried to work up a sentiment that tbe whole temperance question is Now a. Dead Issue and should be omitted entirely from to morrow's platform. The wing ot a dove whisked so sharply in his eves that he could sot see straight tbe remainder of the night. So he was for quiet and peace, and the local option granger was too. And, as for the high license advocatesl "Why they had brought cages or doves with them, and were ready to make presents oi them to their friends. Thus did all endeavors to get up a fight meet with ignoble failure. It was not a fighting crowd. The disposition was just the opposite. "While that is true, candor compels me to acquaint the readers of Tiie Dispatch with A Horrible Suspicion that prevailed here late to-night. It is said that the birds described in the foregoing were not doves but that they were sea gulls . from the masts of Matthew Stanley Quay's yacht Manatee, off Brigantine Beach. By men who ought to know, this is denied. State Chairman Andrews says they were genuine doves. Senator Delamater declares theyiwere the fancy breed of doves, and "Walter Lyon adds that he was sure he noticed some of them carrying olive branches. Nevertheless, it begins to look as though they were really sea gulls from Quay's yacht. Too Lute to be Remedied. I am sorry I built up such an interesting conceit on the dove theory, but as the tele graph operator had sent the first part of my message before the exact difference between a peace dove and a sea gall was determined over at the LochicI, I do not hold myself to blame for fooling the reader. Blame it on an off rear in politics and the prospect ot an insufferably dull convention on to morrow. There was only one thing left for the newspaper correspondents to do. Quay and his sub-leaders had it all cut and dried as to the nomination of Speaker H. K. Boyer for "State Treasurer and Bill Andrews for Chair man of the State Committee. "We were, not taken into the fisherman's confidential net in that catch, so the reporters were busy this evening helping to frame platform lor the Bepnblican party in Pennsylvania. ,j artL,.Aif .... "Vrikwit 'iliiissttsYrfiWfir ( tY'nMIEL & -JtlSAmSk'iSKSk s v:' e w s Later on Representative Andrews and Sen ator Delamater compared this with the plat form which Quay approved in Philedelphia yesterday. It once more -proved that 'Great minds run in the same channel." All Heady for the Convention. All Is ready for the. convention, which meets at 10 A. m., to-morrow. Decorators 'are at work in the Opera House, hanging bright-colored bunting throughout the hall in graceful designs, and otherwise throwing a cheerful look into it. Secretary Leach, of the State Committee, has engaged a band, which will be instructed to play low, soft musio, and not disturb the harmony of the convention by trying to blow the roof off the Opera House. It has been decided to make "Walter Lyon, of Pittsburg, temporary Chairman, and Senator Delamater permanent Chairman.. Brooks, the father of the high license law, had been'spoken of for permanent Chairman, bnt unquestionably that would have em phasized high license too much. On the other hand, Delamater can be given a boost in this way in his Gubernatorial canvass. It gives him more prominence. As for "Walter Lyon's selection, that is the. best evidence in the world of the training he is being put through by Quay for leadership in some capacity, if it cannot be in Allegheny county. Who Will Name Them. Senator Boies Penrose, of Philadelphia, will nominate H. K. Boyer, of Philadel phia, for State Treasurer. "Walter Lyon had been talked of as a toeond to the mo tion, but 25 others are anxious for the same chance to be heard. Representative An drews will be nominated for State Chairman by a man from the "West General Frank Reader will be Chairman of the Committee on Resolutions, and David Lane will be Chairman of the Committee on Organiza tion. Candidate Boyer held open court in C. L. Magee's old room at thetLochiel to-day. He did nothing but shake hands and tell stories ail day and evening. Candidate Andrews was very busy assisting State Sec retary Leach make arrangements for the convention. Neither pulled a wire, neither asked for a vote. That was not necessary. Had it been Matt.Quay would not be out fishing now. PLATFORM TIMBER. The Piece of Political literature Complete The TJsnnI Indorsements Amend- meets to the Brooks Xaw and Other Recommendations. It was nearly midnight whenl succeeded in getting an ontline of the platform which will be adopted by the convention to-morrow. Although the headings were known to Quay yesterday, the details were in trusted to Messrs. Andrews, Delamater and Lyon. They consulted with various dele gates this afternoon, and by 8 7. M. the bit of political literature was complete. It starts out with the usnal indorsements of the national and State administrations. Governor Beaver's administration is indorsed in a general way. Had that portion of the platform been reduced to fine details, the Governor's course at Johnstown would have forced itself forward, and that -was a sub ject better left untouched. Further along there is a resolution of condolence for the sufferers of the Conemaugh Valley flood, and suggesting that some action be taken by the National Government looking to a per- Of course there is nothing, in the rumor that the indorsement of Harrison's admin istration would be weakened by a word or two about his backwardness in "turning the rascals out." That was a lie out of the whole cloth. The platform reaffirms the party's posi tion on the question on high license. This is prefaced by a sort of preamble about the party having, fulfilled its pledge to submit the prohibition qnestion to a vote of the peo ple. Of the result, words1 addressed to a baby could not be more tender. Recommendations are made for the con solidation of all future amendments pro posed to the Brooks law. This is with the end in view of placing some restrictions on the high license law, to patch up the fences broken down by the Supreme Court for wholesalers and bottlers. Another plank relates to soldiers and pen sions. It advocates a liberal construction of pension laws, and recommends further amendments in order to broaden the scoDe of the law and make the policy progressive, i 11 not in words, the plans in enect indorses Corporal Tanner. There is a high tariff plank in the plat form, as usual, beside resolutions on the death of General Cameron, and other mat ters. COUNTY ORGANIZATION.

Some Elmllsr Cases in Which Very Heaty Flnti Bare Been Assessed. District Attorney Lyon's report in the matter. of the alleged imported glassworkers at Jeannette, has reached the miscellaneous room at the Secretary of the Treasury's office, but in the absence of Secretary "Win dom its contents cannot be revealed. ISrXCXAZ. TELEGRAM TO THE SISFATCH.1 "Washington, August 6. The report of District Attorney Lyon, in regard to the alleged importation of glassblowers for the firm of Chambera & MeKee, at Jeannette, reached the miscellaneous room of the Secretary's office of the Treasury Depart ment to-day. Such documents are not given to the public until they have been referred to the Secretary, and this reference couldn't be had,. owing to the departure of Secretary "Windora with the President. It was learned, however, that District' Attorney Lyon re ported that in his opinion there was a con tract, and, therefore that the glassworkers are here contrary to law. A considerable mass of evidence in the case was presented to the Department some time ago by Mr. Homer L. McGaw, which included a complete resume of the action of Local Assembly 300 of the Knights of Labor, and the part played in that action by Mr. James Campbell, who, it is alleged, is IMMEDIATELY BESPONSIBLE for all, or nearly all of the glassworkers who have since their importation been em ployed by Chambers & McKee. "When they arrived some of them were asked to engage in common labor until the factory was started. They did so, and some of them are yet so employed. Affidavits of two or more of these work men are on file which give direct evidence of having come to America under an under standing that they were to wort at this fac tory, when started. They did so, and some of them are yet so employed. On coming here they were immediately taken charge of by the Manaeer, Mr. Moore, and in some instances furnished pocket money, when' there was no work. District Attorney Lyon appears to have gone thoroughly into the case, to have sub stantiated tne allegations and affidavits made to the department. After a terse and clear recital of the facts, he expresses a de cided conviction that THERE WAS A CONTBACT within the meaning of the law violated, under which the persons causing the im portation can be prosecuted and the work men returned to the country whence they came, at the expense of the vessel on which they were brought to this country. Officials of the department who have knowledge of the case look on it as a very serious one, and express the opinion that Sid rmxg&sijS. i; Beoretarv.""who;- as yet. has not examined the case, has had opportunity to carefully review the evidence and the report of the District Attorney. "When the papers and report were presented to Assistant Secre tary Bacheller, this afternoon, he merely fave the formal reply that they wonld be eld. for consideration, which doubtless means that no action will be taken without the full knowledge of the Secretary. It was intimated .that while it would be easy enough to bring suit, it might be found not so easy to return the immigrants. The act provide that in the event of a discovery that an immigrant had been LANDED CONTBABY TO LAW, he may within one year from his entry "be taken into custody and returned to the country from whence he came, at the ex pense of the owner of the importing vessel; or, it ub cutereu jruui nu aujoimng country, at the expense of the person previously con tracting for the services." But no ma chinery is provided for taking them into custody, even if they could be found, and in case they were apprehended and presented to .the captain or owner of a vessel, that per son could rightly refuse to return them, on the ground that they had been admitted at the time of entry by the oustoms inspector. As to the prosecution of the persons mak ing the contract, separate suit can be brought in the case of each immigrant, and a fine of $1,000 and costs imposed in each case where conviction Is secured. If it be found that THESE WAS NO FBATJD or willful negligence, or imposition that is, if the contractor was ignorant of the law,-or if other mitigating circumstances were dis covered the Government has the power to remit the penalty. But whether in case of conviction any other composition of the matter is legal or possible has not yet been decided. In the case of the imported pastor for Trinity Church in New York, when the vestry were convicted of a violation of the law. a compromise was songht, but the end has not been reached. The case has been taken to the Supreme Court on a question of constitutionality and constrnction of the law. Another famous case still hangs fire. Senator Parwell and others, of Chicago, some years ago contracted to bnild a state house for the State of Texas, and in return received such an insignificant (to Texas) re imbursement as a few million acres of land. A Scotch contractor for the stonework im ported all of his countrymen to take the place of the American masons. Suit was brought and a CONVICTION SECUKED in the case of each of the 11 men. The fine and costs in each case amounted to about $3,000. Steps were sent on foot to effect a compromise, bnt as this point was reached just previous to the last Presidental election, good politics suggested delay, and the case was left a legacy to the present ad ministration, in company with that of the alien pastor ot the Trinity Church. In the case of the Trinity Chnrch, Secretary Manning decided that no compromise could be had" under the act, but in many respects the law was so loosely constructed as to be capable of almost any construction, and the amended law is no considerable im provement, except in the machinery pro vided to make it operative. For many rea sons It is thought this case will be pushed to a rapid conclusion as soon as the densrt- mentcan reach Its consideration and order J suit to De bought. DBPEIYED OF THEIB EIGHTS.

The Restoration of the Grain Rates Greatly Injures tbe Oyster City's Trade. ISrECIAX. TELEOBAM TO TUX DISPATCU. 1 Baltimobe, August 6. The prediction that the restoration of the grain rates wonld practically break up tbe business in this citjr has already been thoroughly demon strated. The completeness of the destruc tion show3 how fully the fears of the Balti more dealers were justified. Six months ago Baltimore's grain elevators were almost burst with corn, and an immense supply was flowing daily for shipment. Now the same elevators are emptier than they have ever been, and there is little grain coming in from the "West. There was not enongh corn in all the Baltimore elevators to-day to load one ship. During the spring and early summer the attention of the entire country was attracted to Baltimore because of the foreign export trade in grain. At that time this city was daily shipping to Europe from 100,000 to 300,000 bushels of corn, which was a larger business than' that done by any other city on the Atlantic caast, not excepting New York. To-day the fact was brought to light that the elevators here contained altogether but 49,000 bushels of corn, the smallest amount since the construction of tbe great elevators at Locust Point. This deficiency is not caused by heavy European shipments, as might be at first supposed, .but from tne fact that there is no grain'coming to Baltimore from the "West. f A BIG INDUSTBI SUSPENDED.

General Blakely appeared for Martin, and "William Yost, Esq., for the defendants. There was much suppressed excitement among Martin's sympathizers, which at times threatened to become quite audible, bnt -which was promptly suppressed by His Honor. . Mr. Yost said there would be no attempt to defend on the ground that the defendants had license; but he held that, as Captain "Wishart had one, duly authenticated by the Court, it was not necessary that his em ployes should have one, as they were ONLY EMPLOrED TEMFQB A RTT.Y. Captain Dalgleish was sworn, and stated that Captain "Wishart had such a license, and the license was exhibited in proof. Captain "Wishart, Mark's father, was put on the stand. He said he conducted a de tective agency, and had had his son Mark in his employ for 13 months. The other de fendants had also been employed, but he held that ' none of them had any certain tenure of office, but were subject to discharge at any time. Young had been employed the past.two months. Hesser had been in his employ since last October. wouldn't stand cbowdino. During the cross-examination some of Martin's friends got uncomfortably close to Captain Wishart, or, at least, he seemed to consider their, proximity uncomfortable, and appealed to Jnstice McKenna to re press them, and His Honor did so promptly. General Blakely pressed Captain "Wishart to give the names of the members of the Law and Order League, but he refused to do so, and the Justice did not back General Blakely's request. Captain "Wishart ad mitted thatthe ordinary detective expedients were rasorted to to trip people who did business unlawfully. Hesser testified that he had been em- E loved by different detective agencies, and ad done work for several of them in the same week. He said he had been employed by Captain "Wishart. i E. P. Young corroborated Captain "Wlsh drt's statement as to employment and tenure of service. "" x HARK DODGED TIBS. Mark "Wishart admitting all that was charged in the information, did not see fit to go on the stand, holding, as they and their attorney did, that only the head of the agency was ob'ieed to take out a license. Mr. Yost addressed the Court and read the law, dwelling especially' on the clause which states that the act does not apply to persons employed temporarily. He said every agency in the county did the same thing; that there , was no other charge against the defendants, and the only object of the proceeding was to head off men who were attempting to suppress infractions of law. He applied some caustic to old sores during his remarks, dwelling somewhat strongly on motive. Mr. Yost's remarks drew oul General Blakely rather strongly. He held that motive had little to do with the case, so far as his clients were concerned. He hinted that'motlves were sometimes brought out to the satisfaction of jurors, causing them oc casionally to put costs on prosecutors who made unnecessary trouble. He held that in this case the motives of the prosecutors were fully as pure as those of the other side in their prosecution of people. GEKEBAL BLAKELY DBEW A PICTURE of the actions of some detectives, in which there was no chiaroscuro, only shade, and that very dark. He said: '"This act was made necessary to prevent frauds. "Wishart has been robbing Allegheny county out of 525 on every agent he lias employed." A "Wishartlte All other detective agen cies do the same thing. Blakely Yes, all others do the same, and they may be looked .after also. These de fendants are just as much lawbreakers as milk-shakers. "What iz temporary employ ment? Is it a term of 2 or of 13 months? This is general and continuous employment, wheie men are employed for Aire to do everything necessary to carry out the alms of the agency, and each of these defendants is beating tbe county out of 25. Mr. Yost came back and stated that Gen eral Blakely was talking extemporarily, and in proof read the law again. "When the lawyers let up, Justice McKenna observed that there seemed to be a great deal of feeling In the matter, and In consequence he had decided to reserve his decision (as to the holding or non-holding of the defendants for trial at court) until noon to-morrow; and the crowd dispersed amid a shower of left-handed compliments bestowed by each side on the other.

Cincinnati, August 6. What has been termed the salooaists' rebellion was formally ended in the Police Court this afternoon by the granting of amnesty to the offenders on the application of their attorney. The trial of John "Warflineer was in progress. He has been one of the most defiant violators of the Owen law. "When the court was ready to proceed, Mr. Thomas, his attorney, ad dressing the Court, said: Your Honor, Mr. Warflinger is one of those men who met and openly agreed to violate tne law. They were men who bad money invested and thought they were justified in trying to make money, and tbey were in some measure excusable. But they were wrong; and before a week bad passed tbey knew tbey were wrong. They saw their mistake, and last week another meeting was held, at which these men in tbe presence of tbelr counsel by a unanimous ris ing vote agreed to obey tbe law hereafter, and to do everything in its support that was pos sible. How, your Honor, having seen the error of their way, tbey ask forgiveness, and as their representative 1 ask the Court to meet them half way by indefinitely postponing tbe cases now pending aeajnit them, to not be revived so long as they obey the law. Prosecutor Corcoran was glad to hear this proposition, bnt suggested that the suspen sion be for 30 days, unless there were further violations. Judge Ermston was apparently pleased with the course taken. He made a lengthy address concerning previous efforts to enforce the law, and concluded by say ing: This law Is a restriction on a business out of which no good ever came. Its good effects have been seen by its enforcement, and now tbe great body of tbe people favor it. We have shown that the law can be enforced.

His Attorney Thinks a Bank 0n?M to Bectlfy aa Al leged Blonder. ' Alfred Post's peculiar ways of making money out of a scheme of his own are made public through a suit he brings against his attorney for a settlement. ISFICXAL TXXXOSAX 10 THX DI3rATCT.l Chicago, August 6. The first authentio history of Alfred Post's celebrated "Western Freight Claim Bureau, his connection with Millionaire Albert A. Munger, his dealings with the Union National Bank, and the $25,000 transaction between him and James J. "West, late publisher of tho Chicago Times, is given in a cross bill filed in the Superior Court this afternoon by At torney Francis A. Biddle, in Post's suit for an accounting against him. Biddle was Post's attorney for nearly three years, and acted as his confidential adviser all through his troubles, which fol lowed the discovery of Post's gigantlo swindling scheme and his subsequent flight to Europe. In this cross bill Mr. Biddle says that for x years past he was engaged.in collecting for a commission, and purchasing claims against transportation companies for damaged goods, rebates on freight, and lost merchandise, under the name of the "Western Freight Claim Bureau. WEESi! THE BOODLE LAY. A part of his business consisted in solicits ing from capitalists large sams of money, representing to them that he could use their money in the purchase of claims of the na ture described, and realize fpr them veryi large profits, often as large aa 25 to CO peri cent. In this way, it is asserted, Post obtained from time to time hundreds of thousands of dollars from different capitalists. Some time ago, Mr. Biddle says. Post told, him he had a short time before re ceived from Albert A. Munger 343,000 to be invested by Post in his business in ac cordance wish the terms of certain written contracts which he had made with Mr. Munger. Post further told Mr. Biddle that Mr. Munger had sent his attorney to inspect his (Post a) books, for the purpose of ascer taining where, how, and with whom his $313,000 had been invested. AFRAID OF SCECTINY. Post said he was greatly annoyed at tha prospect of an investigation, and asked Biddle to make some kind of settlement with Mr. Munger, and thereby prevent the exposure which was threatened. Mr. Biddle began negotiations' with Mr. Mnnger's attorney, which resulted in an arrangement to the effect that if Post wonld pay Munger $50,000 in. cash within 10 days and give his note for the balance of $313,000', payable in one year, Mr. Munger wonld accept snch a settlement. Post appeared very anxious to have this arrangement carried ont, and informed hfs attorney tnathe could raise 535,000 through Colonel H. 8. Norton, of "Washington, and the 'qnestion arose between Post and Biddle how the other $15,000 could be raised. Post at that time had in his possession a promissory note for $25,000, payable in ona year and bearing 6 per cent, interest. This note was made by Publisher West, of ths Timet. 'He then requested Biddle to ' USE HIS BEST ENDEAVOBS to obtain, by means of this note, the balancs of the money necessary to settle with Mun ger. At Post's solicitation Biddle executed with him a note for $16,000, payable in 90 days, to the Union National Bank of Chi cago. This note was discounted, by the bank, and tne proceeds were paid to Jfost, the "West note for $25,000 being left with the bank as collateral security foe the pay ment of the $16,000 note. After receiving this money. Post left Chicago, ostensibly for the purpose rf pro ceeding to New York, to see Colonel Norton and get the other $35,000. Instead of rais ing the balance of Munger's $50,000, ha went to New York, and soon afterward sailed for Europe for his health. "When it became known that Post had fled, his creditors began attachment suits against him and levied upon all the prop erty belonging to him that could be found, including the "Wabash avenure stables. LIABILITY OF THE BANE. Mr. Biddle further charges that the Union National Bank, without his (Post's) knowl edge or consent, surrendered to "West tho note for $25,000. By this action Mr. Biddla asserts that the bank is liable to account to him in money for the surplus in the collat eral notes, amounting to $10,500, half of which was by an agreement between hint and Post to be paid directly to him. Mr. Biddle says that Pot's indebtedness to him for his services amounts to over $12,000. Post, it is said, left the country with be tween $900,000 and $1,300,000, which he had secured in a few months by his business operations. Millionaire Munger con tributed a cool $310,000 of this amount. x Post is supposed to be in Brussels. DEATH IN A TBAGIC P0E3I. A Hunter Near Tonnsstovrn Shot by His 3-Year-Old Baby Dor. irrECTAi.
