Yet in spite of paying off the debt in this r.spid way and reducing taxes, the I.'iuoi-ratie administration finds itself face to face with a trouble that never bothered any otiier nation, and that is a surplus, which it says shall only be re duced by striking at the roots of our pro t.s tive system, and iu this way attacking our credit and proserity. t u country has sustained serious losses in the death of many of it distinguished statesmen, generals and scientists during tit-p.ist several years, but no gap has been oja-lied by these calamities that could not la- easier filled than that open ed hy the death of l.'osvoc Conkling.

At that time he was violently as sailed by some enemies, and Mr. Conkling defended him as he alone could. From that on to his death tliere was the friendliest f.-el-ing 1x4 ween the ap-d statesman and the New Yorker. " In his social life," said Genera! Cameron. " Mr. Conkling was kindly and very com panionable, lieing lively and very fond of a joke. Many a time he has driven me about the outskirts of Washington during his resi dence there, and on these drive we learned to know each other better than we ever did before. His was a brilliant mind, and I ve no dolibl that he would have again risen to laiiitical prominence had he been H'rmitted to live." General Cameron thought the sug gestion that the 3oi survivors attend the fu neral should be carried out. Suspending the Tariff Fight. WtsuitiiTos, April ID. The IVnuarats, in their double purp.isc of political maneu vering and preventing Southern appropria tion bills from suffering by the President's veto, have pot the House business into such a tangle that the tariff bill has lvn tempo rarily laid aside. Mr. McMillcti and Mr. liurrow s were to sja-ak on opM.ite tides to day, hut immediately after the oja-ning of the session Mills mdea indicated that the debate statement which j w as not to be re- ! sinned until next TucsJ.iy. He said that it was though! advisable to allow the Appro priation Comniiltis? to get consideration for some of their bills, and he suggested that they take the time at once. No objection was offered and the Indian Appropriation bill was taken up. Mills' ac tion was the result of the Ik-mocralic caucus of last night and appears to have la-en pre liminary to a pro.rrani!iiL. which islob-ar-rautred after consultation with the Kcpuhli oui members of thr Committee. The gen eral opinion at the caucus waji that tiie tariff um ,uuuU, ui j as;,U. from time to lime to allow otla-r hnifrtaiit busimss to be discuss ed and thai l0 couimitua.'s decision w iil simply show a-iiat tbjt Democrats regard as important enough to iuUTjVro with their aelHiue of revenue reform. The It.-i'ukhcaus of the committee ill not have much to do ia tiukhiK th'-dis- ! ions, but the)' w ill not advocate a)- wi i delay in bringing the tariff bill to a vote, j S far as liecn.a-r.itn o; .in ion is conccniud it sta-ms to bt the almost unanimous licsifi; that Fritlays shall still be left for the con sideration of private bills ; that the Commit ! tec on Public Lind; should have at least a day ; that Pacific railroads should be consid ered ; that the District bills, which were for ced out of the way by I lie effort of the brig adiers to whip the Northern faction into submission, should have, their regular time on Monday ; that the P.ist Office Appropria tion bill should have a chance, allJ that the lliver and Harbor bill should la- discussed and finished, all in the time la-fore the tariff could laawibly la" completed. These and several other SKX-ial ot tiers and measures are all a Iviawicd vigorously by lVmocrats, and the free trade leader fear that unless concessions are ma lo to tliem they may make trouble when their vote are wanted on the tariff. The leaders, of course, Wifl be to thniw the blame for the delay on the I.-ub!iean or Itaii.U'l. but the fault is so vlearlf w ith ll iK-nna-ratic lca.U rs them selves that it w ill hardly be attempted at present.

Tiie entire assemblage arose after prayer and joined in singing " K-x-k of Ages."

Senator Cameron" Tribute to His Friend. Senator J. IVnald Cameron, of Pennsyl vania, said at Washington yesterday, in sa-akiug of Mr. Conklinn's death: " 1 am deeply grieved. He was a noSie-hearted man, true to his friends and a worthy foe. Tliere is nothing more precious to me than was his friendship.

There IU the certificate of my membership," continued the Senator, uiiitiiig to a glass p:ia-r weight which lay upon his writing table. " Senator Conkling was my ideal of a great statesman. I might go further and say that I p-gard him as the greatest of all Americans. He was not a leader. He had I none of t'te qualities which make successful leaders, hut intellectually he had no peer anions his countrymen. I should have liked before his death to sec him ill line w ith the Kepublir.ui party again. I think, had the uomiiiatiou this year been acceptable to liii , that lie would have ariicipatcd active ly ia the campaign. In my judgement, had he lived, matters woiilj have so shail themselves as to give him great prominence iu his party councils again before man years had passed." Another Black Eye. JI akbikbi Ri. April 1 Judge Siiuontou to-day handed down an o;iiuiou in the case of the Commonwealth v. the Delaware ai)d Hudson Canal Company, iu which h de clares the fourth section of the revenue ai t of iss." to ta unconstitutional. Mortgages issued by foreign corpirations and owned by residents of Pennsylvania are required to la- taxed at their actual value by the local assessors, the same as mortgages issued bv corporations of this State are required, by the fourth section, to be assessed at par. and tile treasurer of the company is required to deduct the tax upon their par value when aying interest ii)ti the bonds. A number of cases involving this tax were argued List !eceinber, but this is the first opinion filed. Tlie aft of l.7:i is declared to la- sulistuuiially the same as the acts of ISTSt and lssl, w hich were declared void bv the j supreme court in tlie Lehigh Yalley eases. 1 All the larger coi. rations Imve appealed from I this tax.

The republican Convention met here to-day, with Ceneral J. Warren Keifer as temporary Cli airman. When the body had been permanently or- ganised Hon. E. L. I-ampson, the President, inade an elulsirnte address. The various committees had been appointed last night at the temporary organization, when Governor Foraker made a speech avowing bis devotion to tlie interests of John Sherman a a Presi dential candidate. THE riiTroKM. The Committee on Resolutions, through its Chairman, Hon. Charles Foster, reported the following : The Republican party of Ohio in conven tion assembled, reaffirming the platform of 137, adopted at Toledo, present the follow ing additional declarations : First. Free and nntramtneled suffrage lies at the ibundation of the Republic, and its restoration by every constitutional means in States where it has been overthrown or inquired and its maintenance everywhere is our settled and determined purpose. We de nounce the Democratic party for its nullifi cation of the war amendments to tlte Con stitution, whereby the Republicans of the South are practically denied a voice in the Government of the nation and the ajwer of the Democrats of that section is unlawfully augmented. We charge that the IX-mocratic party is now in tlie enjoyment of power con fessedly pnarured by the unlawful suppres sion of the franchise in the Southern States. We affirm that the acceptance of a)wcr thus secured, the apparent purixiso of the party to continue the methods mentioned and its shameless defense of the criminals who, in the States of Maine, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, have sought to stifle the popular will by frauds and forgeries, justifying us in charging that it has practically become in a national sense an organized conspiracy against free aud fair elections. In view of these facts, and believing that to deprive the legally qualified voter of his franchise or to iuqiair the public confidence iu the fairness of the count is to weaken and ultimately de stroy free institutions, we call upon the pa triotic citizens of Ohio to rebuke the iwrty res(ansihle for these crimes against suffrage, aud we demand of Congress that, in the ex ercise of its constitutional authority, it enact such laws as will insure freedom and fair ness in the elections of representatives to Congress. Second. We favor such economic legisla- I tion as will protect all American industries j that can be profitably pursued by American j citizens ; wc insist that our producers are en- j titled to the control of their own markets to thecxteiit of their ability to supply them ; we denounce all efforts to open those markets to competition with the cheap lubor and abundant capital.of foreign nations as hostile lo the interests of labor and destructive to national and individual prosjieriiy . We re gard the last annual Message of the Pn-si-dent and the recent action of the majority of the Ways and Means Committee as a di rect and oja-n assault upon these industries, which will, if unresisted, result in intnaluc ing a alicy of free trade that in the near fu ture will paralyze or destry our own indus tries, reduce the coma-nsaiiun for labor and impoverish the nation. Third. It is the duty of Congress to pass aud of the President lo lpprove a wise, just and comprehensive pension bill giving rebel to disabled veteran soldiers and subsistence to the helpless widows and orphans of de ceased soldiers, without regard lo the time when disability was incurred or to the cause of death. Fourth. Thcja-ople of Ohio unqualifiedly condemn the n-fusal of the Democratic ma jority of the House of Representatives to H-rniit the (wssage uf the Direct Tax Re funding bill passed by the Republican Sen ate, which was a proasiiion to repay to the loyal States, without interest, the money tid by them at the beginning of the war to aid iu -suppressing the rebellion, and lo can cel the tuiHiid balance, principal and inter est, due from the rebel States ujam said taxes, and we denounce as treacherous and cowardly the surrender of the Northern Dem ocrats in Congress to the small minority of the ex-Confederates and their allies, and the abandonment of the bill, which,- if passed, would have contributed nearly $1..VX,1) to the relief of the tax payers of Ohio. Fifth. Wc commend and indorse the ad ministration of Governor Foraker as wise, prudent, patriotic and economical. Sixth. We indorse the legislation of the present tieneral Assembly, aud approve its action in redeeming the promises made in the Republican platform of 1S7. Seventh. The Republicans of Ohio recog nize the merits, services and abilities of the statesmen who have been mentioned for t,he Republican nomination for the Presidency, and, loyal to any one who may be sehrted, present John Sherman to the country as eminently qualified and fitted for the duties of that exalted ohice, and the delegates to the Republican National Convention this day selected are directed to Use all honorable means to secure his nomination for Presi dent of the I'nited States. Another resolution was added, pledging support to the Soldiers and Sailors' Home and to the Ohio Soldiers and Sailors' Orphan Home. The resolution was adopted w ithout amendment and with applause, which was augmented by the unveiling of a portrait of John Sherman suspended over the centre of the stage. At Ibis int the convention listened to several songs from glee clubs, the burden of which was Sherman for Presi dent. KOXIXATIOS FOB STATE OFFICERA. Senator Kerr placed in nomination for Secretary of State Daniel J. Ryan. The rules were suspended and he was nominated by acclamation. For Supreme Judge, J. P. Bradbury, of Athens county, was nominated on the first ballot, many counties changing to him be fore the result had lasen announced. For member of the Board of Public Works Wells S. Jones, of Jackson county, was nominated on tlie first ballot. KELE.JVTKS TO THE CHICAOO COSVEKTIOX. The convention then pna-ec led to elect four delegates at large to the Chicago Con yeulion. It first suspended the rules and se lected Governor Foraker as one of the dele gates. Asa II. Bushnell, Charles Foster, Wni-McKinley, Ben Butterwurth and John S. 4 1 wood, colored (whose nomination had been demanded by the colored delegates), were placed in nomination from whom to select tlie remaining three delegates. The ballot resulted : Bushnell, T7S ; Poster,"5t? ; McKinley, ."I3; Butierworlh, 4t(l, and At wood, 213. Foster." McKinley, and Butter worth were declared elected. National League of Democratic Clubs. New Yore, April 22. Delegates repre senting Democratic clubs from all parts of the country met here at the Hoffman House to-day, to form a national leagne.

' of IMttsburg, Pa., arrived here yesterday on J bis way home from a trip np the Nile- Mr. j jill(t was j tw American consul service Ibr t twelve years. He left Naples on the 22nd of J M,reh. where lie laily met Mr. B'.aine for J everal weeks, as he was stopping at tbesarae j jKllej witn Wr. Blaine and his family. He says he had several long and pleasant talks with Mr. Blaine, but did not mention pol itics. "The talk of him as looking like a broken down old man is nonsense. I know seTera! gentlemen in Pittsburg who were at -college with Mr. Blaine and he looks no older than tney do. He was active, took long drives with his family every day and went on ex cursions just like the rest of ns. Then the story of bis being fed on skim milk is not true. I don't know this to be untrue, but be dined with his family at the hotel restaurant the same as the rest of travelers. In a word, he gave me the impression of beingan elder ly gentleman out with his family for a pleas ant holiday. His memory is wonderful. He knew mc at sight asked ni about my fattier and the Gazdte. my father at the time of his death being one of the pniprietors of the Pittsburg Cvuuiurcvit Gnseite. but Mr. Blaine hadn't heard of his death. For two hours he talked over old reminiscences of Western Pennsylvania." Ceorge H. Pendleton stricken. Beblix. Apnl 20. Hon. George H. Pen dleton.

Your father telegraphed me himself to day." Minister Pendleton went lo Weisha den to visit some friends a few days ago. His daughter has been stopping Uy Berlin, but is at present visiting friends in Italy. Minister Pendleton's son does not consider bis father's condition at all serious. Washington, April 2".

Curtis Tuhhs. of Athens township, is in jail lor stealing two sticks of Hour from a mill near his home. He protests that lie had to steal the flour to keep his wife and four small children from starving. A gentleman who went to the house with the constable says : "When the constable and a few others went to Tubbs' house they found the family consisting of himself and wife and four small children, the oldest but seven years of age. jaisitively destitute. The poor woman had no shoes, the little ones were barcfated, and such few clothes as they possessed were in sufficient for the demands of even ordinary weather. Beyond the stolen flour there was not a sign of food alaiut the bouse, nor had there been for ovir two days. I verily la lieve the poor man was driven to steal the Hour to save his family from starvation. When they look Tubi away his poor wile stood leaning against the door, the most pit iful sight I ever saw. She seemed absolutely heartbroken and discouraged, and 1 actually cried myself as I looked at her." An effort w ill he made to secure relief for the man's family. Death in the Flames.

The fourth floor was filled with thirty white men, while forty colored lialgers were asleep on the fifth fhsr. Tiie fire, which is believed to have been of an incendiary origin, started under the stairwav of the second floor. Most of the men were ii drunken stupor when amused by the flames and smoke. Their exit was rut off from Ihe stairway and they had to slide down a rope, which Bill Anthorr, a negro, found in the fifth story. There was a general scramble for the rope and several men came out of the windows with their clothing on fire- John Miil.me, the night watchman, after giving the alarm, heroically saved Alec Well, a cripple, bringing tliesuff.a-ating man down the rope. Three dead laxlies have been taken from the ruins. It is not known how many perished. Mr. Conkling's Remains at Utica. I'tica. N. Y April 2".

April 21' luc tire net. which will no doubt be adopted by the Fire lie part nient here, and is the htest device for saving lives in case of fire, was used lo cxi-el-lent advantage to-day in the Hurley rag shop fire at 7 East Third street. Several per sons saved their lives by jumping into the net. The building was filled with highly inflammable matter and burned rapidly. Dense volumes of smoke and scorching flames drove back the brave firemen and territii-d the occupants of the buildings. The fire broke out shortly before 0 o'cha-k this morning. Sixty men and women were employed in the buildings. All had narrow cscais, and the rescue by the firemen were decidedly romantic. The loss to stock was f 12,000.

The firemen claim that the escapes were practically useless. A Wholesale Lynching Bee. Kansas rrrr. Mo.. April 20.

Phelps Once More WAsnisoTos, April 2.I. It is conceded on all sides to-day thai Minister A.J. Phelps will be nominated for the chief Justiceship. The president is not iu the habit of confiding to senators what he is going to do regarding important appointments, but iu this instance he is rqxirted to hare said to at least one democratic senator that the selection of Mr. Phelps was finally determined npon. He spoke to this senator in such a decided man ner that the nomination was looked for to day. When Secretary Pruden arrived at the capitol in (lie course of the afternoon with a number of messages from the White House, a number of senators at once rushed to the presiding officer's desk and glanced at the manifold copy of the appointments sent in but among the list the name of Mr. Phelps did not appear. The reason for the delay is explained upon the ground that tlie presi dent desires to observe the month of mourn ing fur the late chief justice which will end next Friday before sending in the nomina tion of his successor. The selection of Mr. Gray was really never seriously considered by the president, though a u umber of senators urged tlie president very strongly to apjint the seuator from Dele, are. The president, it is understood, was willing to appoint Mr. Gray to a place on the bench as associate justice, but uot as cheif justice, and this determination oti his art was reached, it is believed, njan the re presentations made by members of supreme court themselves, who for obvious reasons would not relish the idea of having so young a man as Mr. Gray, who has neither exper ience nor training, as a judge, to preside over their delila.-ratioiis. The general ob jection raised by the committee on judiciary in the case of all nominees for the bench alaive the age of GO. Mr. Phelps is 6T years of age. SV : Train Robbers Smoked Out.

Ksrry Shechau appeared at a door and was j riddled with bullets. The soldiers kept np their fire through the d.xir and killed Hart, whose body was found afterward in the building. Johnson had the alternative to being rousted or shot, and preferred the lat ter. He suddenly drew open the door and rushed out, with a revolver in each hand, to be met with a volley from the Sheriff and his guards. Johnson fell iijain his face, but raised him self upon his elbows and fired both pistols. In an instant he was riddled with bullets. Sheriff Paul searched Johnson's body, and found "'M and some Jea-elry that had b.-en taken from the express car. When he got to Hart's laidy he found ajr picking. The soldiers had got there first.
