Tug affairs of the Lincoln Club are being
very generally discussed. Republicans
express the hope that the organization
mav be nernetuated, and Democrats
who recognix* ita effective work would ae
soon see it pass out and be bung up as a
billowed memory. Some of the commenta
are baaed on misinformation. The
Club is not in debt, and if it were to go
oat of existence would owe no man anything.
But the Directors are not willing
to make new engagements without seeing
their way clear to meet them.
If the friends of the Club desire to keep
it alive they have only to eay so in a substautiid
way, and the Club goes on as before.
Fur this reason the Directors urjje
a full attendance at tbe annual meeting
on Thursday evening of this week.

the people who desired to come to the
Capital to attend the funeral of the late
Vice President. The remains, which have

residence at 5 o'clock this afternoon. The
arrangements for handling the crowd
were much more complete and satisfactory
to-day than 011 Sunday. Military
companies and police were stationed along
Washington avenue for two blocks away
from the Court House, and as fast as the
people arrived they were put in two lines,
which were kept moving. There was a
steady stream of humanity pouring
through the building all day.
The doors were opened at 7 o'clock this
morning, and from that time up to noon ,
the crowd passed through at the rate of 75 \
a minute?probably *-'5,000 people viewing
the remains up to one o'clock. The greater
part of these are from out of the city, although
all the schools, offices, manufactoriwi.

called into requisition to keep the mass j
moving and to prevent a blockade. When '
ihe great doors of the building were 1
jrdered closed thia nfiernoon, a waiting '
crowd, numbering thousands, etood in

Shortly before the noon hour Senator '

in a few moments that he preferred to remember
Hendricks as he last knew him,

mrprise at the lifelike appearance. 'Tornaps
a little paler, but remarkably lifelike,"
was his remark.

In a quarter of an hour the marshal and
uis assistants, representatives of committees,
tuarched to the court house. The '

The committees on reception and of arj
rangements concluded all the matters of
detail for the funeral this afternoon. The
. arrival of nearly all tho distinguished
visiting delegations have been timed for
the early hours of tho morning, and subcommittees
were appointed to arrange for
their reception. One thousand tickets
' have been issued for admittance to St.
| Paul's Episcopal Church, where the services
will bo conducted and tbo orders
are such that no one will be admitted in '
the abaenco of a proper card. A detach- i
I ment of soldiers and police will bo on duty ,
to sco that this order is carried out.
Iu the funeral procession there will bo (
seventeen carriages for the exclusive use ,
of relatives and intimate friends. These
will follow the hearse from the family
residence to the church. The procession
will be formed at the church. The re- (
mains will reach the church promptly at
12 o'clock. The line of march to Crown 1
Hill Cemetery, whore the remains aro to 1
be interred, is fully five miles, and owing
to the length of the procession any delay
in its movement might necessitate the
performance of the concluding rites at the
grave after the shadows of the afternoon ;
had begun to fall, and owing to thia fact
the committees have sought to insure
promptness in all its movements.
What the Late Vlce.Presldent Advocated to
Ur.TMtWa la IMC.
St. Lopis, Mo., Nov. 30.?Judge E. A.
Xoonan, of the St. Louis Criminal Court,
for years a warm personal friend of VicePresidont
Hendricks, says that during
Mr. Hendricks' visit here in fair week he
dined with him in his private parlor at the
Lindell. There were present beside them
Mx, J. 0* Shotmiker, proprietor ot th?
I Indianapolis Sentinel, and Hughes Kant,
I the Vice-President's secretary. After dinner,
while the usual post urandial con*
venation waa in progreas, Mr. Hendricks
in an off hand way remarked that had
Tilden followed his advice the Democrats
would have had possession of the government
nine years ago.
Judge Noonan asked him how he figured
that out, and he replied: "In 1870, when
the controversy over the returns from the
Southern States came up, Tilden and I
held a meeting and discussed the situation.
I argued that we were elected honestly
and fairly, and I claimed that the
right mode of procedure waa for us to go
to Washington and be sworn in the regular
way. Tilden demurred, however, arguing
that such proceedings might precipitate
a civil war. I argued that, having carried
the chief commercial State, the moat
conservative and influential business men
of the Republican party would, rather than
see it come to a civil strife, declare in our
favor, and their declaration, 1 believed at 1
the time, would prevent a clash of arms,
but at any rate 1 believed the case was
one whien demanded heroic treatment, i
and I proposed carrying it up to the very
caunon's mouth, I would have risked
the consequences that- might have followed.
although 1 would have deurecated 1
the resort to "an armed force us much as
the next man.
Ttlden's ideas, however, met with the
best support and my suggestions were
vetoed. As a result the question wont to
Congress, a law was passed authorising
the creation of the Electoral Commission,
and soon after Hayes and Wheeler were
declared elected."
a Chicago Journal on President Ul*v?land'f
Chicago, Nov. 30.?The Chicago Timu
:his morning says: '*It is singular how
srery full the air is of a species of menace
igainst the security of President Cleveland.
He is being urged not to attend the
funeral of Mr. Hendricks on account of c
possible danger. Danger from what? Is fc
it that a train bearing tho President is c
nore likely to meet with mishap than oue 1
;hat carries its ordinary load, and if so,
arby? Whence is this mishap to be *p- ,
jrebended? The origin of tho rumor can
je traced to no source. It is as if there _
?rero murder in men's thoughts. One
ieara on the streets a continuous com- f.
nent: 'If anything should happen to ^
Cleveland, and if John Logan should be:ome
toe Acting President, how quick all
ho new officeholders would be kicked

treed for place that leveled the nistol at 0
iartield, and which liuds an evident sat- I

4,ltistobe hoped that the President,

shall remain away from the funeral of Mr.
Hendricks. If he is to be assassinated he

New York, Nov. 30.?There has been a ?
ery decided preference manifested among 1
lany Republicans here to-day in faaror |
f Senator Sherman's election to the va- j
ancy created in tho Senate Presidency.
'hey are strong in their belief in hii su*-- .
ms because of the fact which they tell, *
hat at the beginning of the Senate see- j
ion in March last, the position was quiet- 4
v offeTtd to him by the Republican Sensors
before they knew that it would be
he policy of Mr. Hendricks to
lay m the chair continuously to i
prevent any Republican from being |
nad? President pro tem. The place is (
McArrloil hv Mr. Sherman's friends as a
tepping stone to the nomination/or Presi- (

hey argue that it would not be an ad- {
-ancement for General Logan in that 1
lirection. If the General is elected, they 1
ay, he could not refuse a renomination
or Vice President, and bo would be taken j
nit of the list of Presidential possibilities. '
rrom what is said hero the position lies
letween Shermau aud Logan, unless both
hould decide to support a third man like
Ulison rather than have a contlict. Sheruan'ti
friends want him to get the place

strong enough to make a contest, and has
compromised with Carlisle and Morrison,
by which he has agreed not to interfere

"It is a matter of mere speculation,11 resumed
he, "as to who will till the vacancy."

The Lynn mines of Pine Run are the only

as to tho number of workmen at work.
The operators claim that 50 men went in

thero were not more than 15.
In the fourth pool a number of men resumed
work this morning at Keel's mines,
but at Gregg's and Wood's the diggers do

Ward said that Warner was merely act- '
ngfor J. II. Work, and tnat when War- '
ler's checkbook is produced it will tell \
ho whole story. Keceiver Da vies, he j
aid, got from him $400,000 in securities, (

rould show that he drew out $770,423 in *
ctual cash, and that Fred Grant got be- 1
ween $130,000 and $180,000. Ward paid
'red Grant 20 percent a month for his
ooney, and if Grant divided with Com- *
oodore Garrison, Shoemaker and others,
hat was something with which Ward says
te had nothing to do. Ward added: ,
' It comes with very poor grace from ,
his man who took tho securities belong- 1
g to Grant A Ward, borrowed money on ?

D the public, or ia the public, to whom he J
ontides everything concerning himself
ud his family, not to bo taken into his
onfidence in this respect alone?"
"I aee you are rather sensitive on the
irant matter?"
"Indeed I am. Particularly so far as
he old General was concerned."
"Did he get any money?real money, I
oean ?"
"Why, certainly, the checks show It.

against, we claim, the $130,000 he
>ut in, but which Fred Grant says was
190,000. I can't make it $190,000, but,
ranting that, he still drew $242,000." 1
Ward also said that Mayor Grace was |
aid for himaelf and through his .two
genta, theTobeys, a grand total of profits
mounting to $284,814. He made a calcu
ition that he received from Warner
0,709,435 and paid him $8,124,803, leavng
a balance of $1,345,308. lie insists,

St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 30.?News of a
bloody riot between black and white miners
cornea from Bevier, Mo. The trouble
commenced last evening aa the negri/
drivers were returning their mules from
the mines to the Btablea. As the drivenpassed
near the railroad dopot a crowd o)
about seventy-five miners, who were
standing on the depot platform, comment*
ed to throw rocks ac them, and followed
them up the street for several blocks
The negroes then tried to turn their mule*
and drive them back to the mints. Whei
in front of Watson's store some peraoi.
fired a revolver, and in a few minutes t
perfect fusillade of bullets was fired at the
black drivers.
An eye-witness states that not less that
fifty persons had revolvers in their hands
The drivers had then retreated almost tc
the mine, when one of them fell from hi*
mule. He was carried into Thoma*
Jones' house, where it was found that bt
had been shot in the side, and in a few
minutes he was dead. By this time the
other drivers had reached the stockade,
secured their rilles, and commenced firing
at the white miners. For nearly half aii
hour this promiscuous shooting was car
ned on, the number ol white miner*
Laving greatly increased.
One of them, John Martin, was struck
by a bullet irointh4? stockade and instantly
killed. The bullet passed through hit
cheat. Several negroes were also wounded.
During all tills time it teems that thfc
authoritiea made no effort to check the
riot. Two deputy sheritfs and the town
Marshal were present, and it is even stated
that they took part in the trouble. The
name of the colored man killed is Charlee
Harris. He was a young man who had i
beeu employed in the mines but a short
timo. Three other colored men were
wounded. Henry Fluininer was wounded
by a bullet passing through his neck.
Jefferson Phillips was shot in the head
and Wilson Green received severe scalp
wounds from being struck with rocka.
The bodies of both the dead men have
bten removed to their homes. It is impossible
to tell by whom the fatal shouwere
fired, and no arrests have been made.
Fhe inactivity of the deputy sheriff and
Marshal is severely commented on, as it is
.bought that by proper elTorta bloodshed
:ould have been prevented.

Norwich, Esq., Nov. 30.?A horrible
ind sickening sight was witnessed to-day
it the hanging of Robert Goodalo, a market
gardener, for the murder of his wife,
it Wisheath, on September 15th last. The
iulprit, ainca his incarceration, had increased
greatly in flesh and weighed fully
UK) pounds. After the death warrant had
wen read, and everything made ready,
;he drop was sprung and the condemned
nan fell a distance of six feet. His heavy
weight caused the rone to rebound vioently,
jerking Goodale's head completely
)ff his body. The headless trunk, together
with the head, fell upon the platorra
ci the scaffold, the blood spurting
inu gusning in an uirecuons.
Tho severed head lay at the feet of the a
riclico, the muscles of the fact* contorting
n a most hideous manner, while the eyeids
opened and closed several times
Altogether the sight waa moat horrible,
ind those who witnessed it were made
jick with horror, some of them fainting.
An inquest was immediately held, and investigation
showed that (ioodale's head
bad been severed as though bra surgeon's
knife. It was found that the vertebiie waa
unusually small. The hangman wa<3
sober and cool throughout. The Coroner's
jury exonerated him from all blamo. The

Lion. Palmer is a young ruflian who has f
before been guilty of attempted murder.
He masqueraded the streets last even- !

flourishing his knife in the poetoflice, B.
P. Anderson attempted to pacify him, and
thought he had succeeded, when Palmer 1

the breast. The wounded man's brother ,
then engaged in a terrific hand-to-hand ;
jtruggle w?{h the murderer.
The by standers were afraid to interfere,
and the other Anderson soon fell pierced ,
by two bullets. The murderer then ;

London, Nov. 30.?The Mark Lane ?*)reu
in its review of the British grain
trade says: Heavy rains have prevailed
luring the week and in some districts the
:ountry has been tlooded. It ia believed
'.hat the wheat acreage is below that of
1884. Young wheats look atrong and
healthy. Values are barely main wined,
lud the tendency is downward. Saliia of
English wheat during the week wore t>8,218
quarters at .'503 fid, against 66,985 quarters
at .'50a tod during the corresponding
week last year. Flour is freely delivered;
prices have not improved. Barley ia defining.
The foreign wheat trade ia merely
a retail one, and it is difficult to maintain
rates. The receipts are large, and the
floating bulk increases. The huge stocks
in America gTow larger, and money is
scarce, and there have been heavy losses
Mid no hopeful signs for the future have
yet baen sighted. Perhaps the moat disturbing
element was the possibility of a
collapse of the American gambling market,
which would entail the shipment of a
quantity of wheat here, and further reduco
values. Corn is rather in favor of buyers.
There is no feature in the market for
wheat cargoes. Twelve cargoes arrived;
three were sold; five were withdrawn and
nine remain, four of which are California!!.
