THAT JIBECT M C4SE.
An Entirely New and Interesting
Question Sprung,
DOES W. Vfl. OWE THE U. S.?
The Old Virginia Mobt Question
May be Involved?Governor
Fleming Join* Windy Wllsou
nt Washington.
Dispatch to the InUUtoautr.
Wasiiisoto*,- D. 0., April 13.?Freeh
amplications have entered into the
Wist Virginia direct tax cue. Governor
Fleming himself arrived this morains
in answer to a telegram from ExGovernor
Wilson. The Governor had
with him what purported to be a copy
ol tho Journal of tho Legislature, iu
which appeared tho provision missing
in the two certified copies of the Joint
Resolution giving authority to the Governor
for the reception of the money.
fie further reported that a freshly
certified copy would be along presently,
and that he was prepared to rest qaietly
until such time as a United States check
rhould be forthcoming; but alas, when
(lie two gentlemen, happy in the pros
pect of au early deliverance from all
their woes, presented themselves at Ih'j
olli ol the First Comptroller, 011 tile
nneiiing of business this morning, they
were promptly informed that the entire
matter had been referred to the Attorney
General for liia opinion upon a legal
question involved, arising out of the
provisions of section 3481 of the revised
statutes.
This section provides that when any
State owes money to the United 8tates
for bonds purchased or otherwise, the
amount of this indebtedness shall
deducted from any sums which may i
subsequently become due that State i
from the Government. About July, ,
1800, the United States invested several
hundred thousand dollars of Indian
Trust funds in sir per cant. Virginia i
State bonds. Neither principal nor in- i
terest has ever been piid, and together I
with previous debts the amount now j
due from Virginia to the United States 1
is about $1,000,000. <
In July, 18(10, West Virginia was a 1
part of Virginio, therefore the question
is now, whether or not the sum due
West Virginia on the direct tar account
shall bo paid to her or simply credited
upon the Virginia debt, and this is what 1
the Attorney General is called npon to f
decide. 1
The Comptroller took Governor Flem- !
ing and ex Governor Wilson over to the '
Department of Justice and introduced I
them <o the Attorney General and So- I
licitor General Taft. The case was i
talked over and an agreement reached <
by which argumeutswill.be heard be- I
fore the Department of Justice in a few <
days; the exact date has not yet been
fixed. While, of course, the governmont
officials will not express an opinion
upon this new phase of the case, it j
ia learned from competent outsiders that f
if precedents b* followed, there is small
chance of any money going to West 1
Virginia. The United States is very 1
jealous of its rights under such circum- i
stances, and seems at present to bold the
whip hand by a considerable majority. <
In the meanwhile, as stated, nothing i
has yet been produced to prove that the i
Legislature ever $ave authority to the '
Governor to receive the money, and
that pbuse of the case remains as bafore.
WSTOKy Of TilK QUESTION ]
Comptroller Matthews la Now Studying.
How Writ Virginia liaa lleen Paid Her '
Hlinrw of the llefund. 1
Washington, D. O., April 13? It appears
that man; of the States that ex
- -I In tho pntlra amount' ol
{IBUIUU
their contributions to the direct tax, are
to be disappointed. A scrutiny of the
refunding act by the First Comptroller
has satisfied bin that the United States
Government may claim offsets against
all States wherein the tax was not collected
from individuals directly by the
Government. He lias been searching
the records for Btich offsets, and found
in Rome States large arrearages.
West Virginia is perhaps in a woise
plight than any other State. Virginia
owed the government $1,500,000 on account
of State bonds, and when the new
State whs cut off it agreed to assume roepousibility
for her share of the indebtedness.
But the government was never
retiaid.
Virginia's sharo of tbo direct tax
money cannot be withheld, for their
money wan collected from individuals,
but West Virginia was paid as a State
by ofF-setting her share of the Direct
Tux by a claim of $459,000 for munitions
of war furnished by the general government,
which claim was allowed. Now,
the refunding of the Direct Tax money
ia pending a decision of the caso by the
Attorney General. It is presumed that
the old State debt of Virginia may also
be represented as a weighty principlo
And one which is involved.
Auitlu Corbln lllnckbftlled by the Union '
Club. ;
New York, April 13.?Auatin Oorbln
was blackballed by the Governors of
tho Union Club, at their regular
anouthly meeting hold last VVodnesday
evening. Mr. Corbin's name was proposed
for membership something more
than two yt-ars ago by James G. K.
Dnnr. lha li inker, and was seconded by
J, Pierpont Morgan, and in other ways,
it is stated, his candidature was indorsed
by the strongest tuen in the organize
lion. The story is that when tho count
was made six blackballs were discovered.
When John Kin#, the President
of tho Erie railroad, was blackballed, 1
live blackballs were deposited, so that
Mr. Corbin is ahead of Mr. King in this
unique competition.
The fact that J. Pierpont Morgan had
tee .odea his name, simply increased
the pieasuro found by the Union Club's
Governors in depositing their black*
balls. It is generally believed in the
Union Club that Mr. Morgan is the man
who iiret promulgated the idea of the
millionaires' club that promises to becam*
so f >raiidable a rival,, and the
blackballing of Mr. Cotbin is regarded
by a great many men as an interosting
devo!opmtntof tha antagonism of certain
elements id the club toward mil*
Honairee, sud the club that the millionAires
are organizing.

Matter of Doubt-*Itallan
Ofllcials Koticcnt.
Washington, D. 0., April 13.?Bat
two facts coald ba added to-day to tbe
public stock of information respecting
the diplomatic entanglement with Italy,
{rowing oat of the New Orleans tragedy.
One of these was that the State De-1
[>artment has not received any intima;ion
from the Italian Government that
their last note moat be answered
jefore a given date. Nor is sach an in*
iimation expected, for tho Department
eels that it is acting properly and res*
lonably, and it would be a very unusual
loarse for a nation engaged in negotiations
with another, to question the mo-.
tives upon which the correspondence
proceeded.
The second fact ie tbat Secretary I
Blaine's aoswer to the Marquis Radini's
lust note has not yet been forwarded. It
was probably tho Secretary's purpoue to
iccompany this reply with an ofllcia!
statement touching the nationality of
the New Orleans victims and other facts
tbat were expected from tbe officials of
the the Department of Justice, in New
Orleans. These reports have not yet
reached Washington. When they are
Funaiooil ara?t must ha oxarciaed in
reducing the facts contained in them to
i form useful for diplomatic use, so that
anless the Secretary is prepared to send
lis letter without tiieao facts, it is not
likely to go forward immediately.
Seeretary Blaine bad a short talk with
he President to-day, but as the latter
vas very busy in arranging other imjortant
matters before he leaves Washugton,
it is not probable that even this
lubject, in which he has shown particuar
interest, could be discussed with any

Shipment*
on the Increase.
Fcottdali, Pa., April IS.?There wo
unusual activity ill along the line today
owing to the announcement that the
Frick and McCinre companies bad decided
to begin operation! at all plant* aa
Boon as possible. The McClore company
concentrated their efforts on the
Painter plant and eighty men went to
work there to-day. The other McOlure
plants are still idle, however. The
Frick company states that their shipments
to-day will-apach 100 cars of
coke, bdt the strikers, deny this.
Some twenty eviction notices have
been, served at the Trotter plant alone,
?d in view ol the fact that fully two
hnndred notices have been served
throughout the region it is thought
trouble will come when the warrants arc
carried out, as the strikers will certainly
not go peaceably. Great mass meetings
have been held at Bnssemer and other
points to day, and at esch resolutions
were adopted to remain out until the
end. Another enormous meeting is being
held at Tarrs' to-night.
At tbe Bessemer oiftM meeting, attended
by 1,000 strikers, the speakers advised
the men to stand Arm, and assured 1
them if they did victory would soon be
theirs. John Nugent, ol Ohio, was thr '
oratorol the day. He told tbe strikers
to resptct the National guard, as they
protected the strikers as well as the operators.

what we promise to the peop e
if we allow ourselves to be diverted frcm
