he will probably secure the adoption ol

on Douglass said to'day: "The dispatch

gives entirely too much importance to
nt. the proposed convention of colored men
il- at Indianapolis, as well as to myself,
l,j when it represents uie as intending to

a' employed by Democrats in getting up
this little Hide show. I hope no friend
('" of mine will believe me capable of attending
and disturbing the orderly proceedings
of such a convention. I should
r* as soon think of assaulting a funeral or
1,1 stamping on the grave of a dead enemy.
"That Pittsburgh special is evidently
ut intended to attract attention to a move"?

?? The colored people of the United States
J>' are neither knaves nor fools. They will

may fail in loyalty to the great RepubV?

l|e President to-day vetoed four private
til pension bills. The first granted a penit
eion to the widow of John Herbst, who
enlisted in 1802. In August, 1804, he
1 j was captured by the enemy. After
U1 his capture he joined the Confed,.
erate forces and was recaptured
by the Union army, and he
l" explained that he deserted to the enemy
9* to escape the hardshi]) of prison life, and
18 was released and mustered out on Oeto,
her 11, 1805. The disability for which
:(1 his widow now asks for pension, the
j President says, were quite likely the resuit
of exposure in the Confederate
1,1 army, and adds:
111 It would have been a sad condition of
affairs if everv captured Union soldier
had deemed himself justified in fighting
ie against his Government rather than to
undergo the privations of capture. Two
u* of the other bills vetoed granted pen*
, sions to Woodford M. Harking and
!,i Thomas Shannon. In these dfcses the
" President finds that the death of the
beneficiaries had no connection with
: their military service.

1H An KaNtorii Comment on the Vote on the
Free Wool Online.
k New York, July 17.?The Pro* to-day
says editorially: "For the first time in
* seventy-five years the Congress of the
uf United States has voted to put wool on
z- the free list. In all the vicissitudes that
18 have from time to time overtaken our
protective tariff, this is the boldest and
rrt most decided move toward Free Trade
1(1 ever taken by the House of Uepresentaid
tives.
;ij "The meaning of this step cannot be
r. misunderstood or underestimated. It
v> is a tremendous blow at the whole Profj
tective system. The argument which
ill applies to the duty on wool applies with
n. equal force to the duty on woollens, on
q. iron and steel, on cottons, and on any
other product of American industry.
1L, If the duty on wool is 'illogical, iniv
quitous and vicious,' then the duty on
woollens is equally bad, and ought to be

Chicago, July 17.?Speaking to a retol?

Freight Agent Morton said that
while the railroad people are desirous
tlmt the strike should be declared off by

tention of compromising any of the
all pending criminal suits, nor could they
iker if they would. Proceedings have been
otJt. begun and they must take their courses.
t' Nothing was said or done at the con?ger
ference to justify the belief that there

lease anyone now under arrest. On the
contrary, another man will bo arrested

' whom the company has strong evidence,
'tie- "All the company will do if the strike is

a cigar and turn and swiftly disappear.
R*n? Hastening to the spot where he had
as- stood, the watchman says be found a
wis fu?u burning, and by prompt action exeai
tinguished it. It was then discovered
ind that the fuse was attached to a can
H. which contained perhaps one-half pound
,-ho of nowder, which was tamped in with
; of coal. The bomb, if it may be called
the such, was taken in charge by the watchwo

Chicago, July 17.?Tbo letter of the
Pope explaining the rescript on the
Irish question has naturally caused an
unusual stir among the Irish cititens of
umcago.
A reporter for a local paper culled on
ex-Congressman John F. Finerty, the
gentleman rnout prominent in the meet- ,
ing of protest called at Battery D some
weeks since, and asked him what he I
thought of the new explanation. "I can j
only say what I said when the rescript i
was first discussed," was his reply. "It
is'Uh interference in Irish politics. If (
Archbishop Walsh had taken the
ground he should have taken this second <
letter would never have been sent. If :
the Irish Bishops of the Nineteenth century
had the backbone of the English '
Bishops of the Thirteenth century, they 1
could easily have brought Leo XIII to 1
terms. As it is the tight falls on the 1
people. The issue is made at last. For {
the last 7()0 years the Irish people have J
been suffering tliQ tortures of the *
damned because of papal interference in 3
Irish affairs. Next to England Rome
has been Ireland's greatest political 4
enemy; and it is on questions ol politics

"The Pope of Rome has no power to i

Catholic manhood and womanhood. *s
The Pope of Home, the head of the
Catholic church, is in all matters of re- \
ligion supreme; but the Pope of Home, .
an Italian Prince with an Italian policy '

He treated of the causes that kept this ]
vast country so lone a wilderness. t
In the afternoon Hon. J. W. Belknap,
of Michigan, presided. The address was

lowed by Hon. W. F. Smith, represent- j
ing Illinois. This evening there was

London*, July 17.?The following un
signed telegram was received here last
night:
"William Walter Phelps Dodge, ofthe
well known New York family of that
name, ran away from Keswick yesterday
with Miss Ida Cooke, the equestrienne
and daughter of the propietor of
Cooke's Circus, spent the night at Workington,
and were captured by the irate
father at Carlisle, en route to Glasgow,
where they intended to get married.
Young Mr. Dodge has cabled to his
family that his honor demanded a marriage
with the young lady. The latter's
father, when last seen, wns furious and
brandishing a cowhide."
The memory of young Dodge's imaginary
marriage with an heiress in New
York, and the graphic description thereof,
which was furnished to the press by
the imaginative bridegroom, being still
fresh in the public mind, the correspondent
wired to Carlisle for a description ;
of the scene. The reply is as follows:
At an early hour this morning a gentleman
residing at 1 Cumberland Road
discovered that his daughter had surreptitiously
left his residence. Diligent inquiries.

young gentleman, said to have been an

took seats in a first class carriage of the
Caledonian Express for Glasgow, due to
leave here about 1) o'clock. In the
meantime, however, the Inspector of
Police arrived at Carlisle station at 8:20
and informed them that the father of
the young lady had telegraphed to have
them Mopped. The young gentleman
seemed very much agitated and loudly
regretted that he was not in a free
country.
In the course of a few hours a portly
gentleman arrived from Keswick. When
he was brought face to faco with the
young couple his feelings seemed to become
uncontrollable, and sevefal times
he brandished his umbrella about the
young man's head in a most alarming
manner. Finally, after much angry discussion
of an unedifying nature, the
young lady burst into tears, threw herself
into her father's arms and protested t
that she loved him best and would never *
leave hiui again. The happy father re- c
turned homeward with his wayward 1
daughter by the next train. The young I
man is still' here in town and visibly t

It has been some timo since Wheeling
hod a visit from otllcials or Couucilmtn
of another city who desired to inspect
her brick pavements ar any other of her

which came here on such a visit from

another delegation, consisting of thirtyseven

the Baltimore Ohio road last evening.
In the party were Mr. E. Nichols, the .

prominent citizens of Newark.
A member of the i>arty said in answer
to inquiries by an Intklliue.vckk reporter
that the main object of the visit
was to examine the workings of the
electrical street railway here. A company
is now constructing an electrical
railroad from Newark toa town six miles
distant. The conductor for tho motive
power will not be strung on poles, as
bere, however, but put under the

to the overhead system on account
of its ungainly looks and the obstruction
of the streets by the poles and
(vires. He also suggested that the contraction
of the wires by the cold ?n winter
would b? apt to make tiouble and
possibly cause serious accidents.
Other members of the party desired to
>bserve the workings of the city gar>age
crematory, others to see for thernlelves
the "Wheeling pavement" of
ire brick, which, although favorably reported
on by the committee which formerly
came here, has not yet been
idopted at Newark: others to examine
;he Gamewell fire alarm system here,
md#still others to see the w heeling and
Lima clubs play ball.
All had their wishes gratified. Mayor
seabright and other prominent gentlenen
did the honors, the Mavor taking
mpper at the McLure with the visitors.
He offered them the "freedom of the
