I.v the Prohibition Convention the t
Third Party was kept in the background. '1
Tills will please those who prefer prohi- 0
hition to politics. All the same the j,
Tliinl Party men are likely to have fi
their ticket in the Held, and everybody ?
must admit that they have as much *
right to name a ticket as any other j
party has. It combines a question of )
principle with one of expediency, and
the Third Party meiiTgny they are not
jntich in love with expediency. t

he was elocted to membership in the j

ne of Fair bank's employes, who Haid

ke would get a position in Chicago. His .'
xpenses while here were paid. All
li? white urease made by Squircr & Co. ,

John Callahan corroborated tho pre- i
ious witnesses' testimony as to the us?
if white grease in the making of lard in j
Hpiiers' establishment, aud the crose-ox*

would call it up at an early day,)

Mr. Palmer introduced a bill providing
for the sale and conveyance to the Minneapolis,
Sault fc't. Marie ifc Atlantic
Railroad CowtMny of certain ]>ortions of
the Sault St. Marie military reservation,
Mr. Pair, who yesterday introduced
a bill giving preference for Civil
Sen-ice appointments (among men who
who had l>ecn disloyal during tho war )
to those who had served in the Confederate
army and who were suffering from
wounds or disabilities?asked Mr. Piatt
(who had objected to tho sccond reading
of the bill) to withdraw his objection.
Mr. Piatt said that he would not object
to the hill being read a second time and
referred to a committee; Ilia objection
yesterday had been based upon what
seemed to bean inference from the title
of the bill.
Mr. Blair said he had introduced the
bill in entire good faith. Ho understood
that in the ono State of North Carolina
there were 20,000 ex-soldiers of the
Confederacy wljo had lost limbs in the
service, and that a very large number of
them were in poor circumstances. It
seemed to him that if the Government
under this administration or under any
other administration gave appointments
to inen who had been disloyal, preference
shoftld be given to those who bad
served in the Confederate army and
were now disabled, other thiugs boing
The debate on Mr. Blair's bill was continued
up to 2 o'clock, when, ut his suggestion,
the hill went over till to-morrow
without uction. Speeches were made
bv Senators Piatt, Hale, Berry, Blair,
Hoar. Riddlel>erger, Hampton, George, i
Manderson, Daniel and llawley. The
nouinern oenaiore, wnuu uxi>n.'i?iug uju
kindliest feolings for the generosity and
philunthrophy which lmd prompted the
introduction of the bill, disclaimed all ;
desire on the part of ex-Confederates for
the passage of any such exceptionnl
measure, but thought that as n mutter
of courtesy and uniformity of practice, the
bill should he read the second timo and *
referred. The Northern Senators were j
of one accord in condemning the mens
uro us unwise and ill-considered.

Washington*, I>. C., March 20.?The
tearing of the Kanawha delegation before
the River and Harbor Committee
look place to-day.% Henry S. Walker
presented the case admirably in a speech
){ an hour and a half. The proposition
)f the delegation was for $500,000, a rise
)f :J00 per cent over former anprojma:ions.
The money was asked mainly
for new locks at tho mouth of Scary anil
licad of Red House dams.
Mr. Blanchard. of Louisiana, Chairman,
at the conclusion of Mr. Walker's
remarks, half sarcastically asked him if
:his remarkable increase would not tend
;o make other increases necessary, and
hustend to defeat the bill. Mr. Walker
jegged the indulgence of tho Committee
[o reply with an anecdote. An aged
father gave his son much advice about
the race of life, saying that many sweet
ind delightful things were lost for want
)f the asking.
Chairman JUanchard, who thus sought
:o take Walker off his feet, was subject- "
,mI to much merriment, Mr. waiKer 1
mid to the Intelligences correspondent 11
:o-niirht that the Kanawha improvement
ivould doubtless receive three hundred ^
housand dollars this year. This is just J
twice tho usual appropriation. The 1
risit of the fine delegation from Ka- 1
lawha has been worth fully one hlW- *
Jred thousand dollars to the improve- (
nents. The Kanawha delegation has '
imde a discovery, namely, booming in a |

Sensational Financial Developments

tors?A Split Between George (
Gould ami HummcI sage. (
Interesting Story. '
New York, March 20.?There is a lively
row in the Gould coinp. Not a little j1
row, but a big row?a row where names .
are being called and tlrreats indulged i;
Well mny the interested and involved J
[Mirsons fill the telegraph wires with ur- n
gent solicitations to Jay Gould to hurry 1
home. J
It was at tho meeting of the Missouri r
Pacific Kailway directors, held a week t
ngo to-day, that this delectable how-d'ye- c
Jo broke out. ^
This was the way it come about: Wall t.
street has been tilled with reports, dated v
back a long time, that the Missouri I'a- 1>
cific's dividend was about to be materi- v
ally reduced. People who pose as "in- T
lidcrs" have tried to pooh-]>ooh these rumow
down, but pooh-poohing would not r
work, and the belief has grown continu- !'
illy stronger that the reports of pros- .
pectivo reductions were true. Yesterday ,f
)ut came the annual reports of the road's J1
in the Gould .Southwestern system, .
making it pretty plain by their wretched 11
ihowing that, reduced dividends or not,
;here are lots of causes for worriment
uuong stockholders.
This report in detail was before the s]
nee ting of directors at last Tuesday's ?
neeting, and it was a good deal of a sur- tl
>rise to some of thoso present. But as- a)
onishment at the bad showing did not U
irevent a prompt motion from one of ii
he directors to declare tho usual div- 1>
dend at the rate of seven per cent. n
George J. Gould objected. The divi- e:
lend ought to be reduced, he said. Bus- p
loll Sage insisted on the motion's passage, a
k'oung Mr. Gould was not to be nut ui
lown. The motion was laid 011 the table, e<
Ever since tho contingent, anxious to c<
lave the old dividend paid, have been
ceeping the Western Union Telegmpli
vires hot between here ami Florida, urgng
Jay Gould to hasten home to protect K
lis nrojjerties, to keep faith with stock*
lolders, and to discipline his son. The
ion, meantime, has taken a palace car tc
ind betaken himself in person to Florida. ^
.Say those who are displeased with n|
jeorgo Gould's determined stand for a c.
eduction of the dividend: "He has ^
ately been speculating on tho bear side w
>f the stock market, lie has sold 'short' 0j
lis father's securities, ami he needs a 0|
eduction in the Missouri Pacific divi- 0j
lends to help him get out even." These tr
charges against young Mr. Gould are gJ
ollowed with the naming of the stock |u
irokers' offices where he is declared to
lavo made his short contracts.
Another intimation that is abroad has tj
t that George Gould has a partner in j,,
lis bear speculations, that partner boin^ t,j
lis younger brother, known to Wall ..
street fame as "Bad Boy Eddie." There t,j
h nothing particularly novel in Eddie 8j
iould going short of papa's stock's. He Qj
ias done it openly, and nis father, when ^
iskcd about it, has seemed to be rather
iroud as he met the (|uestion with a 0|
Jrhispered, "And they do say that the a,
)ov made money coppering me." ,
It certainly is an entertaining situa- n(
ion from a wall street point of view, as (j(
t is from some other points of view. al
md it is a lively task that .lay Goulct
rill have to undertake ill settling things Q,
imicably all around. ...
The annual reports of the Gould South- oJ
vestern system are interesting to the tj,
>oiut of sensationalism. The mileage w
or 1887 increased from 4,(107 to
niles, while the gross earnings fell off m
lix millions. For the Missouri Pacific a
leficit of $1,420,850 appears against a dcicit
of $294,103 for IS80. There is a
nysterious item of $4,702,783 as "float- 'Yj
ng debt," nnd there are memoranda of
'uncollected balances from agents, etc," ^
iggregating $5,547,057. These same en- n(
ries appeared in the report of 1880, but ...
hey have grown ${,000,000 bigger,while
'cash 011 hand" has decreuseu from $2,- rp.
"28,785 down to $514,372. In these three n,
terns there is a disappearance of $5,000,- '
K)0. But this is not all.
I11 1880 the funded debt of tho Mis- tv
louri Pacific was $30,000,000; now it is i,
?44,:U)0,000. Then the capital stock was ..
30,030,000; now it is $43,074,850. Iron 'v,

paid General Badeau $250, thus ratifying ft,
the contract; that he (Badeau) finding t)
that the work was to Ik? such a reniarjcablo
success, and realizing n
that his q^n worjf, oil which &
he had spent sixteen years, would l?e u

authorship of the work, which he rofusmI
to sign, and negotiations were broken

follows: D,
"For months I spent four or five hours
i day at his side and many hours bolides,
in my own room at work on his
wok. When we were together we sat
it the same table and often as soon iw IN
10 had written a pago ho handed it to
ue. I did not write the original matter,
ind in that sense I did not compose the A
K>ok. The thoughts were General
irunt's,und in most cases the originul
lruft of the language, but I suggested
nuch. I told him when to insert
lescription of scenery, where to
ilace an account of a cliarcter;
how to elalwrato a picture of
> battle. I recalled scenes and incidents 1
o his memory in which I had partici- Th
>:ited; or with the story of which I was
iimiliar and I verified his statements. I
lid not compile data as Col. Grant suploses.
The data were compiled and I)at
eady in mv own history, and that he ing
lways took tu his authority. I read up, prt
iowever, several works on the Mexican w,
var and then went over what ho had
mtten on that subject verifying or corcctiiiL'
it and almost rtMimrkmirtliiH !M?r- Mn
ion, so far as construction and stylo uro \

"I esiH'cinlly constructed the work. .
ieneral Grant had u very cood power of ris;
loar and forcible expression in matters of ]
k ith which ho was familiar, or in which ti,0
10 was interested and passages of his ,, ,
rere often felicitous. These I always
etained.and always sought to preserve Fei
its simplicity and dircctncss and even of (
uggodnoss of language, never to betray j-e
iv own share in the work. But the t

No Papal Nuncio Will bo Appointed
to America.
An American Priest, However, "Will
be Appointed to Act ok Inter*
moriiary between the Tope
and the EplNcopncy.
iifiw i unK, .u.uru iu.?11 is asccrtaininl
on good authority thnt the idea
of appointing a papal Nuncio to tliiM
country bus been ubaudoncd by tbo
Holy Sec. Such an apjiointuient has
been often thought of, us the Iloly See
believed it would expedite business be*
twecn it and tbo American Bishops.
It is thought that it would bo a help to
have on the ground some distinguiidicd
theologian, a disinterested party, who
could diB]K>6e of tho small matters
which ore constantly coming up and
which are an uunecessary addition to the
work of the already overburdened congregation
of the Propaganda at Itomc.
The important cases under this arrangement
would dtill be left to the decision
of tho Holy See.
The American Bishops, however, to
whoso suggestions Home always juiys
the greatest deference, thought another
arrangement would be preferable. This
was to have some accomplished American
priest, thoroughly conversant with
this country, its hierarchy and clergy,
statioucd at Komo to act as intermediary
between the American Episcopacy and
the Pone. If the Rector of the American
College at Komc could perform this
function in addition to his regular work,
he would be the person most fitted by
position for tho place. The delay that is
now sometimes inevitable in the settlement
of cases would be much shortened
bv the presence of such a functionary.
Tliis is tno way in which the matter will
probably be HnuIIy adjusted, as it would
be satihfactory to both sides. The
United States is tho only country which
has passed the missionary stage to which
a Nuncio has not been appointed, and
this is taken as a significant sign of the
great impression the American Bjshons
have mode in Rome, and how carefully
their opinions and feelings are considered.
The Nuncio has extensive jurisdiction
and his tribnnnl is a Court of Ap]>eal
from the ordinary ecclesiastical conrts.
If a Nuncio were to he sent to this country
he could not be accredited to the
government as in the countries of Europe,
because the United States would
not recognize the Roman Church Government
oh a political entity. I {ere his
function would be purely ecclesiastical.
