were therefore 010 voters in the count v
who do not seem to have voted at the ProsidfDtial
election. Had they voted it if
quite pcwiblethat Mr. Hutchinson would
have been elected to Congress. Indeed il
is not only quite possible, but it is mathematically
probable that he would hav(
been elected, since it is simply a question
o( proportion, or, in other words, of the

lacked 110 volts o: un election in the district,

Philadelphia, September 12.?Another
session of the peace conference was held '
to-day at the ollieo of lion. John Welsh.
Yesterday the impression prevailed that f
the interchange of opinious would come i
to naught, owing to the irreconcilable atti*
tude assumed by the Barker faction of the
Independents. From what is learned to- '
duy from aomo af the aentlemen uresent.
i the imprt s;iou of yesterday is the fact.
I To-dny there were present besides Mr.
; Welsh Messrs. John. Wanamaker, Little,
" Benson and Cgchran. The proposed with- '
' drawalof General Beaver from the Repub- s
> Mean tieket was discussed in all its phases, ,
, and there was an unanimous and emphatic .
, expression of opinion that defeat was pref'
erable to ilishcnor, and that it would be
! dishonorable for.General Beaver, even had
the gentlemen present the power to with.
draw him aftbis late day. The rejection
of the Independents' terms is final aud 1
conclusive, and matters thus stand to-day.
I "It is our opinion," said one of the^entlel
men present, "that there is no general dej
sire even among the Independents to force
. Beaver from the ticket, for oi all the gen*
tlemeuof that-political.stripe to meet us
to-day and give their views not one re)
aponded." .
t In fact it is learned that there is a good
dealjof dissatisfaction with the arroyant,
1 dictatorial tone assumed of' late by \Vhar>
ton Bafkerand his back room cabinet, as
s his few intimatesare termed here, and the
) other independents resent his ur rogation'
: of iufallibilitv.' It looks aa if it were the
1 end of the conference farce and as"if we
1 had heard the last of such nonsense.

ot science . The subject is now receiving disit
-tingujensd attention both here and abroad.
:e There arc,' However, several physicians who
a- claim to'have mastered it.
w "One factjuis been established," continued
the doctor, "and it is that there are
ta some plight symptoms of insanity to be
.e found in every or.nu. x>ow, in tne.lrontal
in region of buiteau's brain we discovered!
->' several noticeable things which are sure to
Id Accompany an insunemind. The first was
that the blood-vessels which supplied.tlio
brain with nutrition were diseased and had
been so for years. Another source of evi*
tie deuce was to be found in tho nerve corpuce
scules. The'disease here, however, was of
an n more recent origin. A tew of the cells
ps had been'absolutely destroyed, although
>ss the most of them were simply surrounded
and compressed by scores of inflammatory
cells or lymphoid dements. The changes
in these* nerve cells were perhaps of but a
few months' duration. These facts seemed
to iml icuto that if Guitcau was insane at all
he wiusin theilrst stages. The same changes
were observed in hk brain as have been
noted as belonginjfiinrticularly to insanity,
and in a much more marked degree than is
usunl in the average brain.
"Willi bin bralu in tho stato In which
wo found it," proceeded tlio doctor," supplied
by diseased food and animated by
diseased nerves, it would seem impossible
for it to have sustained n healthy balance.
There were eoino statements, mado
tlrst in u Washington paper and afterwards
telegraphed over the eouutrv, that ouf
committee bad disagreed?that two of ns
were in favor of reporting Guiteau insane
und the other one held a contrary view.
That was untrue. In the first place,as I
said before, we were not instructed to report
upon that point at all, ho there could
have been no contest. But there was no
lisaenting opinion in the committee,
l'hero was no discussion on the facta. The
:hanges were as plain to us all as the features
of the face. There could have been
uo argument upon their existence."

the old farmer to "Judge Wilson,"
who said he was a prospective candidate
for the United States Senate and solicited
Mr. Livengood'a support. The two took
the farmer iuto an annex and showed him
a lottery game, which at once struck the
preacher as an improvement on the

it from its sinful uses and
utilize it for the good of the church. The
judge vouched for the preacher ns a man
of substance, but the fanner had no money

Meyersdale, however, where he drew $3,000
of his accumulations out of the bank.
They then drove back to theahow ground,

but if he will turn his attention to the

appreciation of Merrick than I have, and
I havo over prized his friendship,
and I doubt if even he is
aware of .the damnable transactions which
have occurred wince the commencement of
the Star route cases. A system espionage
was established by the Department of Justice,
and in that employ were a number of
disreputable persons, prominent among
them a man under indictment for robbery
and a self-confessed participant in the
"three card montc" cases, lately punished ]
in our court uy me couvicnon ot the men i
against whom the party turned States' evi? '
dence. Jurors were foll6wed, and decoys '
of various kinds to ensnare them into the '
commission ot wrong acts. Efforts were '
frequently made to draw them into !
conversation upon-thc merits of the case. i
I received a number of anonymous letters J
and marked papers were''daily sent me, ail t
containing matters calculated to influence'
my mind. When the regular panel was I
exhausted extra talesmen were summoned 1
and two gentlemen, Messrs. Murray and ;
Tobriner, were selected to complete the i
jury. At once these men were denouuetd, t
their characters assailed and it was openly I
charged and published that they were paid <
agents of the defendants. I demanded of t
one of the gentlemen, Mr. Murray, a full 1
explanation, and on learning the facts of i
how be came to be drawn by the Marshal '
us talesman, felt satisfied that he ?as in
sisted that Judge Wylie's attention should '
be called to the" matter. You will I
remember the judge severely criticised
the course pursued by the newspapers
and defended the jurors from imputations '
cast upon them. Malicious lies were circulated
and published about the jury being
seen lunching with the defendants and
drinking at their expense, air of which
were false. Intimidations of every character
were resorted to, and systematic attempts
made to terrorize the jury by threat- 1
ening them. Some of them were charged '
with drunkenness. One of them, Hulmead,
informed me early in the proceed- ,
| iugs that a lawyer named Falls had interviewed
him, telling him he was an ollicer 1
of the Department of Justice und wanted
I to ascertuin by watching my notes as I ;
I jotted down the salient points
of the testimony and report to him
their import He told Holmead he was
to act by the Attorney General, and-was assigned
to look after him; that it was a question
whether Judjje Freeman or Falls
should be delegated to hike care of Hoi
menu, una unany it was resolved to appoint
T'alis. He urged Hoi mead to act with him
and aid him with information, and said it
would result in his (Falls) advancement,
and that Ifolmead wolud lose nothing by it.
I cautioiied Holuieitd, wheu he told me in
June, to pay no attention to Falls or any
one who attempted to lead him. Falls repeated
his visit to Ilolmead at intervals
and renewed his efforts to inveigle him
until Holmead threatened To kick
him out of his store. Our platvs of business
were invaded by "Spotter-V our employes'
were solicited to tell who wecouversed
with, and what our scntiuieuts were
on the subject of the trial, and our wives
were not safe from over-zealous agents.
The first personal knowledge I had of the
presence of a "jury fixer," was wheu Henry
A; Bo wen made a proposition to me to
convict the defendants, aud promised me
$25,000. His cool audacity was charming,
and he unhesitatingly exhibited to mo his
letters of appointment as a special agent.pt
the Department of Justice.
He wanted to meet the Attorney General,
and said he had been telegraphed for. aud
he was expected in Washington the next
day .Thursday, August 24rlSS2; thatwecould
meet at Worniley's hotel undisturbed and
he would satisfy me that what he promised
was correct. lie further said, ,,\Vell,you
are a man of the world and know when
you are in a light, you must use every
means in your power to win. This is now
the Attorney General1!* fin'ut and he must
succeed. 'Tis political life or death with
him* lie does not regard Judge Wylie as
friendly to the prosecution by hia contrary
lie also said the case came to Brewster
as a .legacy from his predecessor, MacVeagb,
and that it had been terribly mismanned
by MacYeagh and Jainea." Mistakes
had been made, and errors of counsel
had jeopardized it, and the present administration
did not care to press the case
until Brady's papers commenced their
tirade of abuse and villification of thea'dministration
and its officers, and now, under

St. Louis, September,12.?Great excitement
exists in East St. Louis on the question
whether colored children shall be sent
to the public Echools where white children
are taught. The trouble liils been
culminating for some time. During vacation
the school board selected a site for a
school building tor colored children located
between nulroad tracks. The colored
people objected to this location and threatened
to send their children to school with
the whites. Yesterday at the opening of
the schools the colored children' applied
for admission in the white school, but
the principal refused to admit them.
The excitement grew and the Board ordered
the schools closed for the day. Last
night several street tijhts occurred and today
the schools were opened and feu* white
childreu presented; themselves, but the
colored ouea were again on ba?id and yesterday's
action was repeated. Some teachers
left their schools Finally the schools
were again closed for the day. The Board
had in the meantime rented a building to
serve as a school for the colored children,
but the negroes would uot send their children
there, claiming the right to have them
enrolled in .the white schools. Fights occurred
between the white and colored
children this moruiug. The excitement is
growing and it is not known how the matter
will terminate.

the Duke de Mortiy. Mademoiselle and
the Duke had lieeu on intimate terms for
some time past, the former frequently
visiting the apartnientj) of the Duke and
accompanying liiin to places of amusement
and other resorts. It is said the Duke tired
of the lady and of late had shown a disposition
to avoid her as much as possible,
but she would not be shaken off, and last
evening, learning that the Duke was in his
apartments, hastened thither with the
avowed intention of demanding of him a
reason for his alighting her. A quarrel, it

Mademoiselle shooting herself.

A permanaut organization having been
'effected, the roll was called and showed a
full representation of the interests of iron
ore, steel plate aud sheet, bar iron aud
uails, forges aud bloomers and hoop irou.
Mr. Murrell, in calling the convention to
order, asserted that there was no intention
in creating the tariff convention to weaken
the barriers which had shielded and developed
our industries and thus made the
nation great. Our government, he said, is
protectionist, the country is protectionist,
and through the wise action of the President
the government and the people are
rightly represented in this respect by the <
lariu uomtnission. Alter commenting i
upon the efforts of English free traders and i
the results of the protective policy, he de- '
dared that this, policv would be cou- |
tinued ho long as the working man 1
of this country insists upon a higher scale
of living for Iiitnself and his family than
his European brother has ever dreamed of.
lie regarded the work of the tariir com- i
mission as one of great difficulty, hut of 1
supreme importance in remedying erroneous
interpretations of the taritf laws by
which the iron and steel trade had been i
seriously injured. The manufacturers, as |
business men, had been obliged to accommodate
themselves to the situation, while
protesting against it; but they believed protection
to be alike beneficial to them as
producers and consumers. They now
sought to improve the present opportunity
to amend the tariff laws as to secure uniformity
and fairness in the duties. In
his opinion the only way to obtaiu a
cheap and stable price, lin adequate supply
oi iron ore, pig iron, couon tics, steel i
blooms or any other article of steel or iron, .
was by the maintenance of a fairly protective
duty upon the competing product of '
foreign manufacturers. 1
After organization the convention di- i
vided into sections, each representing a .
district branch of iron and steel innnutucturern'
production, who were appointed to
consider and report what duties should be
proposed upon that branch. The proposed
duties, as reported, are to constitute a uuiform
schedule and when amended and approved
by the convention are to be transmitted
to the Tariff Commission.
Mr. Burt, of Milwaukee, offered a reso- ,
huion to allow the report of any section
which does not meet the npprovai of the
convention to be referred back to the section
without amendment and again reirtrfed.
The resolution gave rise to much discussion,
aud was warmly supported by the
representatives of iron ore producers, and
who insisted upon the exclusive right of
the particular branch of industry atl'ected
by duty to fix the rate of that duly. They
intimated that if this was conceded thry
wonld ignore the action of the convention
and appear before the Taritf Commissioners
independently of other interests. Several
delegates deprecated any action looking
to a separate or individual action by
any interest as to impairing the foree of
any recommeudation made by the convention.
Mr. Morrell in urging unity and harmony
of action expressed the opinion that a
schedule of duties unanimously recommended
by the convention would be adopted
by the TarifT Commission, and ultimately
by Congress. The resolution finally
prevailed, and a recess was taken until
evening to enable the different sections to
agree upon the rates of duty to be proposed.
Late arrivals increase the number of dele
gatesin attendance to about 170, representing
the States of Ohio, Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, Connecticut, Missouri, Now Yurk,
Mississippi, Virginia, Illinois, West Virginia
and Wiscousin.
At the evening session the proposed
rates of duty recommended by the various
interests were submitted and discussed
under a five minute rule for debate. . The
iron ore manufacturers recommended by
an almost unanimous vote a specific duty
of not less than $1 per gross ton of L',2-10 .
pounds on all foreign iron ore. Numerous
paragraphs explanatory of existing duties
were reported for insertion in the tariff
laws by vay of correcting the mistake
which ft was complained had given rise to
adverse Treasury decisions,

We wish to assure the triumph of
