tlattering themselves that it could not get

corporation was sharpening its aword to 0
cut the Gordian knot. The arrangement
for terminal facilities on Staten Island is
a master-stroke of railroad diplomacy c
whioh will place the young commander S
still higher up in the rank of railroad f
Presidents. c
The B. & 0. not only breaks by a bril- J
liant coup the seemingly impregnable line c
of defense, but it secures for itself a site i'
for terminal facilities equal to the best. c

from Baltimore has been beset with great ]

Is behalf of Postmaster General Vilas
it is said that in bis forthcoming report
that he will effectually silence the criticisms
ol his conduct in the matter of the
foreign mail lettings. In that case Mr.
Vilas will show how an .executive officer
can make of no effect a mandatory act of
Congress. On the 3d of March last Congress
appropriated "for the transportation
of foreign mails, including railway transit
across the Isthmus of Panama, $800,000."
The Postmaster General was authoriied
"to enter into' contracts for the
transportation of any part of aald foreign
mails, after legal advisement, with the
lowuet responsible bidder, at a rate not
exceeding fifty cents a nautical mile on
the trip each way actually traveled between
the terminal points."
It was further provided "that the mails
ao contracted shall be carried on American
steamships, and the aggregate of such contracts
shall not except} one-half of the sum
hereby appropriate!." The intentof Con- c
xrcea was, of conrae. to encourage Ameri- c
can shipping. Mr. Vilas gave the work to
ioreign ships. The Postmaster General
may show that in,his judgement Congress
erred, but it may put him to some pains to
show that a cabinet officer out-ranks Congress
si a law-making power.

Washington, Nov. 21.?The matter
tent you last week in regard to the llarser'a
Ferry property and the Cheaapeake
k Ohio Canal Company, haa created some
;omment among the newspapers and
mrties interested on both sides. Previous
o the Intkllioxnckk's publication, the
tase had not been made public. Reporters
>f various papers of this city and Baltimore
lave interviewed Mr. McCue Solicitor of
ho Treasury, on the subject, and that otfi:ial
is quoted as saying that while the case
las not yet been placed in his hands for delision,
he is familiar with the facts, which
ire as your correspondent stated them,
le Bays the Government sold to Mr. Saviry
the property and conveyed to him the
intire water rignt; that the United States
onaidered itself the exclusive owner of
tie water power, ana mat tue canal never
lad any authority for using any part of
t. The case ia a dark one for the latter
ompany, and may reault in its being
orced to auapend buainesa.

>ver the Poatoilicea in Weat Virginia.
The conteat over the Fairmont office, 1
bout which aowething has already been
mbliahed, haa reaolved itaelf into a very
musing tusalo between the Preaident and j
he Democracy of the srood old coUnty of ;
larion. When Mr. Cleveland waa apreached
by Mr<-\Vilaon on the subject ol i
^mediately appointing Poetmaater Reed's
ucceaaor, the Chief Exrcntive intimated '
ritk aome warmth that inasmuch as he :
raa Preaident, the Democrats of West I

reHHumu uuiuiy miuriiiuu U;B 4'j*ceuuiJi:y
bat the Democracy of West Virginia
heerfully accorded him the right to say <
?ho Bliould till all the offices, bat humbly 1
petitioned him not to fill them with Repub- <
icans. Then the President, with a still
reater show of temper referred to the
act that an ex-President had requested
be reappointment of Mr. Rded, aud as a
latter of common courtesy to a prodeces- t
or in office, he fait that he ought j
j grant his request. Mr. Wilson j
ben mildly suggested that ex-President
layee, Postmaster's Reed's friend, was
lot entitled to that courtesy, having been
"fraudulent President." It is said that
rhen this argument was advanced the j
'resident flew into a rage, and, with more
rarmth than had characterized any of his
armer utterances, informed the Congress- 1
nan that he considered Mr. Hayes had e
ield as good a title to his seat as he (Mr. j
Jleveland) held to his. A very prominent i
)emocrat ol the tftato who was present at
he interview is authority for the above j
tatements. He and many others express 1
ome indiguation at tho idea of Mr. Reed's 1
uccessor not being appointed. . But the 1
'resident still holds his position, and .
hows signs of gn intention to sustain his 1
eputation for having };&ck-bone, even 1
hongh it costs the Democracy tUe'county
f Marion.
At Grafton is another important post- ,
iffice over which some of the boys are
;reatly exercised. Jim Mason's J Vat V?V- {
vna umocrai, 01 last wee*, tnrougu a j
orreapondent, who seems to be possessed f
f a fertile imagination, makes some re- (
narkably untruthful and startling die- i
iosures concerning the policy ol the pol- 1
ticians with regard to that oftice. postoaster
Kunst's term does not expiro for
tearly two years, and it is asserted that
le is to be allowed to serve his term out. j
though Mr. Kunst is a consistent Repubican
he is not, in any sonse, an "offensive
artisan," while his efficiency as poatnaster
is unquestioned. It is not, tnore- '
ore, remarkable or surprising that honest, j
air-minded Democrats admit that he }
hould not be disturbed before the ex- '
>iration of his term. But this fact alone
b not the remarkable disclosure made by I
he Democrat. The startling statement is
nade that a bargain has been entered
nto between the Uaradeu Democrats and
At. Kunst's friends, by the terms of
vhich the postmaster will not only be
etained, but reappointed. In the meanime,
as the story goes, Hon. John II.
vunst, brother of the jjostmaster, and
lIso a good Republican, is to be the Ke- .
mblican candidate for the .next Legislaure.
He will be supported by the Cam- ,
leu Democrats, with the understanding ,
hat he will vote for Mr. Camden /or
J. b. senator.
Thia story ;ia denounced as wholly unrue
by Mr. KunBt's friends and all lead- 1
ng Republicans, while a prominent :
democratic politician in this city, who
laims to know just what he is talking of, !
)rands it as a "lie gotten up to injure
Jamden." The wily correspondent had :
ividently a double purpose in writing his
ensational story, lie not only wanted
'to injure Camden," but also to injure
dr. Xunst's standing in his own party, ,
n order to induce the latter to assist
ome patriotic Democrat, who is not a
>amden man, and is running as a darkioree
for the postotlice, into the office beore
the expiration of the torm of the inumbent.
When it is time for the above '
ihanpe to be made a strong fight may be 1
ookedfor between the applicants. The
ocal feeling growing out of the recent
3ollectorship contest will be an element i
n this tussle, and there will be again octasion
to speculate concerning the neolthulness
of the spinal column of tho Preailent
in his treatment of West Virginia

I wu talking to a leading Republican
torn Weat Virginia, who wanta one of
bur men to receive the Republican nomination
tor Governor in 1880. He named
.hern. They are Dr. Logan, Col Beall (of
Brooke county), Mayor Jacob Grubb, ol
Wheeling, and John W. Mason, ol Grafton.
It's rather early to talk about the
State campaign of 'BS now, and I made the
suggestion to the gentleman. "Oh, no it
isn't," he said, "the Democrata have the
idvantage of us this time, and Uiey are
commencing to talk about such matters.
With all the dieaffection in their own
ranks, and the fact that we name so near
defeating them last year before them,
they will puah their strongest men forward.
But with one of the men I have
named and with John Sherman, Blaine,
or Logan on the National ticket, we can
carry Weat Virginia."

weak art the Hon. J. M. Bennett, of Weeton,

Wasuinoiok, D. C., Nov. 22.?The annual
report of the Commissioner of Internal
Revenue, for the fiscal year ending
June 30,18S6, shows total receipts for the
year, 5112,421,000 as com pare a witn *121,590,000
for 18W, $144,658,000 for 1883, and
$146,523,000 for 1882. The falling off is
attributed to the exporting of about 7,000,000
gallons of distilled spirits which will
have to be brought back to find a market;
and this, with more than 10,000,000 gallons
that had, on June 30 last, been in
bond for more than three years, Commissioner
Miller relies on to increase the current
year's receipts to $115,000,000. The
cost of collection was $4,455,430, as com- 1
pared with $5,076,914 in 1884. The total ;
expenses of collection are estimated at 3.9 <
percent of the amount collected. The <
amount collected in West Virginia was
{543,188 59. i
Increased production is rated as follows I
in the articles named: Gallons of spirits
distilled from apples, peaches and grapes,
331,719; number of cigarettes, 150,058,515; "
pounds of snuff, 759,149: pounds of tobacco,
5,822,200; barrels of fermented
liquors, 187,334. But two articles show a j
decrease as follows: Gallons of spirits
jistilled from grain, molasses and other 1
materials, 10,790,595; number of cigars, t
JO,040,384. The last Congress reduced {
;he number of revenue agents from thirty- .
3ve to twenty. The Commissioner desires
iuthority to increase tbe number. '

Clabkhburu, W. Va., Nov. 22.?At 12
o'clock last night a horrible murder was
committed at this place, which has caused
Intense excitement. The victim is a
young mafried man named Wm. Owens,
generally known as "Blue Hen" Owens.,
The weapon used was a 38-calibre revolver.
The ball entered two inches below the
heart and passed nearly through the body.
The circumstances attending the tragedy
as far as can be learned areas follows:

fell to the ground in a dying condition, 1
death resulting thirty minutes afterwards. 1
A. coroner's jury was summoned and held
an inquest all day. About eight or ten '
witnesses were examined. The evidence
pointed strongly to Kelly's guilt. Kelly
left town immediately after the shooting. '
At 8:30 o'clock the Coroner's jury re- k
turned the following verdict: We . the c
jury find that William Owens came tdhis

44, though, which ran was followed by i
a run of 33 by Schaefler. Again i
did Sloeson get into the thlrtiea in the i
ninth inning. By a trio of delicate masse
hots Schaeffer gathered the balls and i
checked off 74, mWag on a simple draw.
Sloaaon followed with 23, leaving the score.
Sloeson 231, Schaeffer 132. Schaeffer failed
to acoro on the eleventh Inning, and left
Sloaaon an easily obtained .38, following
thUwith SO mow to hla own credit, Iht
simplicity of the shots on which the
"wizard" slipped up created considerable
disgust amoDK the spectators, and the long
drawn out 'Ons" seemed to disconcert the
New Yorker even more than did hisopponsnfs
play. Twenty-eight was all Sloeson
could get on his next trial, and
8chaeffer then pulled himself together
for a mighty effort, and by a series of
magnificent position plays seemed to
secure a clutch on the ivories clicking
off point after point until he had attained
a run o( 107. finally failing on an extremely
diilicult draw.
Sloason braced himself up for a final effort
in the twentieth inning, but the balls
ran hard for him, and 12 was all he could
get. Schaeffer followed with 40, making
his score 535 to his adversary's 3!K). The
succeeding two innings were tame affairs,
but in his half of the twenty-third Slosaon
made a run of 64, against what looked like
very hard luck. Both players evinced
threat nervousness irom now ou to me
close, the excitemept among the spectators
having meanwhile arisen to fever
heat Slosson ran 25 in the twenty-fifth
inning, but fell down on a simple one.
Schaefler missed in the twenty-sixth, and
Slosson stopped at two. Schaetfer then
ran the nine he needed, and tbo game
dnded. The result of the tournament is
therefore a triple tie, which, as was an*
npuuced before the commencement of tonight's
game, will be played off?no diviiion
of the stake money to be allowed.
Arrangements for playing off the ties
-an not be made to-night, but it is thought
Battery D Armory will be secured and
itted up with seats in amphitheatrical
;orm* and the tournament played to an
ind, commencing Tuesday night, with
me game each of 800 points.

Co Get Into New York Ottj ? an Independent
Baltimoek, Md., Nov. 21.?It is now a
ettled fact that the Baltimore & Ohio
tailroad Company is to reach New York i
is an independent line, it being an- '
lounced on authority that a contract has
>een made with the I^apid Transit Raiload
Company on Staten Island. This ,
atter organization controls nearly the en- 1
ire shore line of Staten Island, having {
ither in operation, in construction or unier
survey lines which encircle the Island, '
nd with the immense water front thus '
pined, possesses beyond all comparison (
he most extensive and perfect terminal 1
acilities known to New York. The conract
between the B. & 0. and the Kapid j
'runsit Company was to-day signed and '
xecuted, this action immediately followQg
the formal approval of the stockhold- 1
ra oi tue two companies.
The stock and bonds of the Rapid Com- 1
any were then tamed over to Treasurer 6
jams, of the Baltimore <k Ohio, who n?w [
las them in his possession. A new Board ?
if Directors has been elected, and its .
aemberahip is largely B. <fc 0., and, in *
act, the B. & 0. is in fqll and complete c
oesession. In order to connect the new .
>roperty with the new Philadelphia line, j
nd thus make it a portion of the B. & 0. f
ystem, a new line will be built from 1
lound Brook, or thereabouts, which is
he terminuB of the Heading Railroad, to ,
Slizabethport, at which point connections
rill be made with the Staten Island Rapid
tonsil Company, thus constituting an
ntirely new and independent line into L
few York, c
The B. & 0. will own more than two .
liles of water front on Stamen Island, to
ny part of which the largest vessels sail- 1
ag on the ocean can run, and, indeed, v
very vessel coming through the Narrows d
rom European ports to New York must f
ass the B. & 0. wharves.
From Staten Island there is now a ferry
irect to the Battery, but it is tfye inten- (i
ion of the company to put on this ferry c
irge screw steamers, which will carry full
rains of cars, and thus a passenger service r
rill be secured direct to New York City a
self, there being now but a single trunk ^
>ne running into ifew York pity. As is 1
?ell known, all the elevated lines of New
fork City come to a common terminal t
oint at the Battery, and there radiate to e
11 parts of the city of New York, running d
p both Bidesof Manhattan Island, $V c
bis the B. & Q. paswaugefM will be enabled v
3 take any elevated line, go direct to its c
levated depot at the Battery, and there
ike the train itself, instead of going into \
rowded ferryboat cabins and sailerine in- o
onveniehces now 90 general.
This New York depot will also give
irect access to the Broadway street car
ines and various other lines, which center
t the flattery, aqd w be wityip a few
teps of the main Brooklyn ferry, the
ime across the ferry will not exceed fifsen
minutes, and the time to Philadelihia
will be made as Bpeedily, if not more
0 than by existing lines, the rail route
ieing shorter by this new line than by any
ither now constructed.
On Staten Island itself, with thjs great
rater front, there will be put up coal piers
rom which coal can be loaded direct into
teamers; also grain warehouses and electors
and jjleia and dopks for other purposes,
from which vessels drawing deepest
rater can be loaded without using the
ighters, thus doing away with the most
expensive lighterage svptem that now has
0 be used by existing lines, undoubtedly
arge warehouses wul be constructed on
be island, as the Brooklyn side Is already
rell filled, and there is no more room
here, and in addition it will be most deirableto
have warehouses so situated
hat car# pan run alongside of them, and
ressels can be loaded and unloaded witl)mtthe
aid of lighters.
It is a fact that the Baltimore & Ohio
las secured the most advantageous terminals
in New York at very much less ex- '
>ense than would havebepn incurred bad
he Jersey Central accepted the company's
iroposition. Indeed, so comparatively ,
ight has been the expense in gaining its
mtrance into JJew York that very large '
urns of money thufl saved will be ex- I
tended in improvements which will make <
he Baltimore <k Ohio a most decided |
lower in New York. It is stated that the 1
rval rAvnnnM nf thft Stflten Island Ball, i
oad are now more than Bulliciunt to take ,
are of all its fixed charges. The new road
o be built wilt not exceed eighteen miles
n length, and a* this will pe pot under
antract at the same time aa is the bridge
rom Ellubethport over to the island, the
irobabilitiee are that both will t? competed
together; the work not being heavy i
n either instance can not be long de- .
