Cleveland advices way that not a
single ore contract has thus far been
made this season. The principal dfficulty
is said to be the inability of the vessel
owners and mine owners to agree on
lake freights for 1888. Aside from this
trouble, however, purchasers of ore are
offish as to contracts on account of the
shaky condition of the iron market.
Jl?. IIenkv George glories in the fact
that lie is a free trader, and ho carries

Mr. Cleveland is a good enough free

if they find it where Mr. George finds
all the free trade he wants.

Richmond, April 1.?The Republican
Stiito Convention will be held iu Petersburg
May 17. The effort to change the
l'lan of reorganization of the party made
?.v those opposed to the Mahone plan
was practically defeated by the Central
Committee last night, but it is announced
that .Mahone's opponents will call
meetings for the districts which aro expected
to appoint delegates to Chicago,
regardless of Mahone's authority as
chairman. This will insure two sets of
delegates, as was the case in 1884.
Mahone contends that only the State
Convenation can appoint, while his opponents
chum that the districts, under
the ruling of Chairman Jones, ofjhe
Rational Committee, must appoint. Tho
Centml Committee is for Sherman for
president, Mr. Blaino being out of the
race. 4

Boston*, April 1.?The Democrats of
tho i'iret Congressional District have
thrown the jmrty throughout the State
into eoafusion by refusing to endorse
President Cleveland. They held a convention
at Middleboro last night to
elect delegates to the National Convention,
and after finishing their work
Whitman Chose, of Pighton, attempted
to foist upon tho convention the customary
resolutions endorsing their Prosi'lent
and recommending his renomina<
tioji, but no met with strenuous opposition,
and by a vote of 06 to 41 tho convolition
adjourned without allowing tlu
resolutions to be read.
Tho Democrats of this section are nol
satisfied with tho way the administra
tion ho* handled its patronage, and pro
poses, if there is a chance, to have then
delegates for some other man than tin
pwsent occupant of the White Uqum.

interchange of freight is to be conduc

all along been the stanchest allies of tli

sought to maintain a position <
so-called neutrality. A new fac
was put on affairs when souk
time yesterday Gen. \V. II. Porte
President of the Chicago & Eastern III

ter to John B. Carson, President of tli
Belt Line. The Eastern Illinois eon

President Carson replied, assenting t
Gen. Porter's letter.

there was no business, or that it bein;
Sunday and man v men idle, danger 0

Along the line of the Chicago, Mi

was completely paralyzed and passen^c
traffic almost suspended. The mormn

been ordered at midnight, had not read

yards were reached, however, each ei

ordered, and then jumped from the cal

. When questioned regarding his oppc

" am not opposed to strikes, and woul

' would prevent the possibility of hast)
'' ill-advised strikes and would not hav

Story?In March Insane?
New Yoiik, April 1.?When the full
story of the career of Jfine. Diss Debar,
the romantic spiritualist and adventur,H
ess is told, and when all of the places
that have known the "Princess Editha"
? in the past have contributed their chap?
ter to the record of the remarkable woman,
the indications are that her history
will be almost as eventful and interest-1
} ing as was that of her reputed mother,
1 Lola Montez. Not since the days of BinJj"
vatsky, the seeress and Theosophiat of
y occult memory, and of Woodhull and
e Claflin, has New York had such a sensaJj
tion as that afforded by this woman,
^ whose fame, or notoriety, like tlie.tem..
pie of Aladdin, has risen almost in a
night. Yesterday many people walked
>. blocks out of their way to get a sight of
I the "Temple," at No. lWi Madison avert
nue, presented to the Princess by her
t devoted worshipper, Lawyer Luther It.
r, Marsh. Another evidence of growing
u celebrity was afforded in three "crunks
o calling at the house, one of whom wished
$ to sing to the spirit paiutinirs.
j "Two of the most prominent theatrical
managers in the city," she said to a red
porter, "have made overtures for permisr
aion to exhibit the phenomenon through
the country, and one of them said there
was at least $100,000 profit in it. One of
i the gentlemen who called represented
jr Henry E. Abbey. Mr. Marsh has the
[ matter under consideration, and it is
f possible that an arrangement may bo of{
fected. Mr. Marsh says he will take the
i pictures through the country to Califorj
ilia, then through Australia and on to
i the Continent."
J The disclosures made as to Luther It.
r Marsh's connection with Mine. Editha
) Loleta Diss Debar, and as to the domin1
ion which thatastute lady exercises over
' the old lawyer's mind' and property
have caused much comment in legal cir8
r They have already led to the rctire1
ment of Mr. Marsh from the law lirin of
1 Marsh, Wilson Sc Wallis, and tho quesB
tion of having him removed from his
U position as chairman of the commission
for appraising the uptown park lands is
now being agitated.
Mr. William G. Wilson. Marsh's late
partner, said that the change in Mr.
Marsh's mental condition lirst became
' apparent about seven months ago, when
, he tried to convert Mr. Wilson and Mr.
r Wallis to his newlv acquired Spiritualistic
views, and told them that he had
r installed Mmo. Diss Debar in his
. house.
1 Several of the old gentleman's friends
. went to tho house and became con1
vinced that he was being grossly imj
nosed upon by designing people. Little
ny little he yielded control of house and
property to Mme. Debar and the Wallaces,
and as they gained more of an us
conur.ncv over uiui ?u wok iujb iiuu icoa .
f interest in his law business.
I laying imbued him with implicit ;
* faith that the pictures and letters came
direct from saints and sages whose au,
thority ho recognized, they used the
r lettere ijs a mejins of getting him more
j completely in their power,
If he kept a tighter hold on his money
r than was pleasing to them, Mr. Wilson
says, a letter came from St. Paul or
Anthony of Padua beginning something
In this way: 'Thou art somewhat wanting
in faith in them that lead thee to the
light. Bewaro of too great a love of this
. world's goods."
By alternate reproaches and praise
femit tin* Hitirit world lu? was miidt' to do
' just what was wanted.
i Lawyer Wilson also said lie thought
. it was useless to attempt to act 5lr.
, Marsh to abandon: Mme, Diss De]>ar and
her mysteries. Intimate friends of his
1 had pleaded and reasoned with him, hut
1 lie was deaf to their entreaties. I lis
J conviction that flhp )YM divinely commissioned
could not Ijo shaken. ,
Lawyer Abo Hummel said: "I have
heard;6f Sir. Marsli's aftiintion with great
r regret. He whs a lino lawyer and.a'man
3 of magnitlcent attainments. We njay
f well say: 'What a noble mint! is liefo
J o'erthroww!'
t "I do not hesitate to say that Mr,
1 Marsh's mental faculties are deranged
and that he is in the power of a clover '
b and designing woman. His case reminds
I mo of that of Chief Judge John W. Ed?
munds, of the Supreme Court, who be ,
a came smitten with the spiritualistic craze
just as i>Ir. Marsh is. He lost his reason
- and was persuaded to fe^ife from the
i Bench.
MADAMS diss i) EH All's recoup.
A former member of the English diplo
malic service, now residing In this city,
was soeu by a reporter; yesterday. He
3 said:
}"fn 1870 this Mine. Diss Debar came
in a starving condition, rjyjth one or two
small children, fo Mrs. E, Gillespie, of
ir Philadelphia, the President of the Wn
men's Department of the Centennial
i Exhibition, and implored work, stating
li that she was deserted by her husband
and absolutely without resources. She
ir told Mrs. Qjlleqnie a story about her be,
ing the natural daughter of King Loqis
j I, of Bavaria, and Lola Morites. Mrs.
i- Gillespie is a very kind hearted woman,
a and took her at her word, and for several
e months during the exhibition the stran>_
?/>? nPi><lj>1i?1 nk till* cntjlloiMlP Htjlll in till!
wgmon's pavilion. She was at tlio
a time a rather coarse, stout-lookg
in# woman, and in >a perpetual
; state of perspiration. Towards the end
i, of the exhibition she got into trouble
o and left, Her pretensions as a daupliter
of King Louis I ejcitod great derision
* among the foreigners nnd diplomat* in
e Philadelphia at the time, "Wiint was esn
pecially amusing was the coat-of-armg
>f she had invented for her note paper. It
consisted of tho royal arms of Bavaria,
a in which, however, the sinister supy
porter was replaced by a silver angol
1, holding out a laurel wreath. Neither
is the "Almanaeh do Gotlm" nor the German
lists of cgunt# and barons contain a
ir line about her."" Laridsfeldt is tho name
a of an ancient German family, who have
r nothing in common with Lola Montez,
t. nnd wl|o are merely barons and not
counts. It is true that King Louis conferred
the title of baroness on his misi
tress, Lola Montcx, but tho title could
only bo transmitted to her legitimate
, children, and she bad none.
}1 "Lola Montcx camo over to thiscounr*
try in 1850, two years after she had been
re discarded by King Louis, and I lielieve
i. that it will bo found that the sol-disant
o Princess, if ber daughter, was born over
here. There is absolutely no evidence
that she had any claim to be considered
ill as an illegitimate daughter of King
re Louis. The Munich axthorities, after
inquin* into the case, vfaunped the claim
o. as a fraud, and declined to have anything
to do with her,' It was on receipt
of a letter refusing to consider Jher pretentions
that her first husband deserted
ty?r. She has no resourcea from the Bavarian
Government. Where she geta
her present wealth is a mystery.'
A dispatch from Parkereburg, W. Va.,
says: In 1871 J. II. Debar, then a middle-aged
man of French nativity, way
living in this city with his second wife,
who was, before Debar married her, a
country girl whom he had found in Dod- '
dridge county, and engaged her as his
housekeeper. Debar was a man of brilliant
mind, specious and plausible in
manner. In 1872 or thereabout* there
suddenly appeared in this city a voluptuous,
splendidly dressed woman, who
claimed! to have come from Paris. She
put up at a hotel bercnaMmo. Measont,
. here Bhe was visited by Mr. Debar.
Debar's visits to Mine. Mcssant, or
"Countess Messant," as he called her,
bticame so frequent that they caused considerable
talk. Finally he had her removed
to his home in the same house
with his wife. Countess Messant remained
at the Debar house for some
time, appearing upon the street and in
public places with Debar. She finally
disappeared, and shortly after Debar removed,
with his family, to Philadelphia.
It is said lie left them afterwards, Jim 1
Wife is now provided for in that eity by t
her ehildren. He then took up his res- r
idenee in New York, where he was .
joined by the Countess. Diss Debar was
formerly West Virginia's State Commis- 1
sioner of Immigration and is well I
known throughout the State. fi
Said a gentleman last night, who .
knows her from her infancy: "She is t
one of tho most audacious adventurers v
this country has ever produced, and ti
one of the most dangerous. Her poor, ti
old, honorable and respectable mother C
is now living in Louisville, Ky., and is t<
well nigh heart-broken over her daugh- b
ter's conduct. But three or four tl
month's ago the mother was thought to tl
be at the point of death, and then I saw it
Mine. Diss Debar crying and wringing It
her hands in pretended grief, though at ui
that very time she was telling Mr.
Marsh that she was the daughter of the Q(
wanton, Lola Monte/.. Her husband,
General Diss Debar, us he , now calls w
himself, is aidfng and abetting her in sc
her trickery, for he was with her in
her home in Kentucky, and knows her
mother and her people, and knows that
Bhe is lying when she pretends to be
King Lud wig's daughter. I have no
doubt that he is the author of the pictures
which she is palming off on iter
dupes as spirit productions. The papers j?
are gradually getting tracks of her doings,
but they won't be able to get hold
of a tenth of them. Ever since sne start- f
procured money H>y hook or crook, but
so fur she litis managed to escape arrest J?1
for her oflenses. She has imposed on hi
many Catholic clergymen, ana, doubt- PJ
less, Dr. McGlynn, of this city, and 8'
Bishop Gihnour, of Cleveland, "would f11
be ablo to add something to her story." Ic
It is understood that a meeting of the m
friends of Mr. Marsh will be held early ?]
next week, to try and devise ways and w
means of freeing him from the influence
of the wonuin, Diss DeBar. ?(

Mr. McKinley says that the first effort
u the direction of ireo trade is aimed at
he unorganized farmers of the country,
>'ho, far removed from the centers of
rade, busy on their furms and plan taons,
unused to meeting committees of
ongress, and unadvised that their invests
were to bo dealt an unfriendly
low, they aro to be the first victims of
10 British policy through the agency of
le American Congress. Theirs is a large
iterest. Few in the country are larger,
is found in every State in the Union,
id indeed in most counties it is in the
hands of the many,
[>t the few. The llockmasters and their
orkmen number at least 2,000,000 perms.
Tho number of llocks will reach
100,000. The capital invested lias been
itimated by competent authority at
00,000,000, and tho annual product of
187 was valued at $128,000,000.
Under the duty of 18(57, the industry
is- grown to large proportions. In
W0 the sheep in the United States numjred
a little over 2:5,000,000; in 1883 the
umber had reached 50,000,000. In 18(50
le clip was (50,200,000 pounds; in 1883
reached 320.000.000 nounds. Tiie dutv

eatest encouragement and induced the

money for the best varieties of

and which finally made the Auieran
wools the beat in the country,
iaptcd to all the uses of manufactures.
, en the highest grades of woolen and
orsted cloths, luw added nothing to
10 cost of wool to the manufacturer or
msumer. On the contrary, that cost
is been greatly cheapened. In 18it7
ie price was 51 cents, in 1370 it was 40
?nts,'in 1875 43 cents. There lias been
Bteady reduction, with occasional fluclatious,
since the act of 1807, until now
is so low aa to be temporarily unprofit)le,
Free wool will be of no pormanent
jnellt to the manufacturer or consumer,
it positive loss to both and great loss
i the flock-masters, and those dependigupon
them for employment. The
icay of sheep husbandry iu the United
ates would boa national calamity. It
ould plaoe our manufacturers at the
icrcy of foreign producers. This is an
idustry which cannot be built up in a

The Columbus State Journal says that y
the schedule prepared by the committee tc
at Mansfield fast week will have to have gj
a few changes made in it on account of ta

without changing the general outline of gt
the schedule. It is a matter of regret hi
that the committee did not seo fit to give
MaiiHtleld and Lima better places on the B
holidays, and also that Columbus has so
few games during the centennial, but o
the committee had a hard task to per- Si
form and it would be cruel to roast them l

was in the city yesterday and said some
interesting things in conversation,
Speaking of the coming Stato election,
lie said the result was very problematical
and admitted that the Republicans
liad a good chance for victory, lie said
:hat if the Democrats make their Stato
platform on the basis of Cleveland's
nessago it will split the Democrats of

Concerning Senator Camden's candilacy
for tho Gubernatorial chair, Mr.
Lucas said that if there was anything in
I it meant that Camden will turn
>vcr his strength after a while to Col.
IV. N. Chancellor. Camden and Kenna
mve been looking askance at each
ithcr since the last election, and Mr.
ucas thinks that Camden will make it
ot for Kenna in the race for the Senite.
When asked about the manifesto to

iad said that he intended issuing conerning
the Faulkner-Lucas contest,
Ir. Lucas replied that he had prepared
but that lie had concluded not to
