To-day haj been tho reception day of

There is a coinuiitteo of ropresontativo

of the Womans Relief Corps, and give
them all a welcome to tho city aud oa- '

It to estimated that thore are 80,000

inspiring nnioic of hands are heard on

Veazey, of Vermont, Commander-inChief
of tho G. A. R., arrived this
morning, and his headquarters at tho
Cadillac have been the mecca of gray
haired and grizzlod men throughout
tho forenoon. General Veazov was ac

Son tjirv of War Proctor was also one

John Taylor,of Philadelphia, and
Assistant Adjutant Emery, of Waahinpton.
Secretary of War Proctor, of \ ermont,
arrived this morning, accompanied by
Quartor-Maiter General Batchelor, who
is a New Hampshire man. The secretary
will bo a guest of General Alger
during his stay in the city. Secretary
of the Treasury Foster will arrive later.
There is strong rivalry in the race for
tlic position of Commander-in-Chief of
th.' Grand Army of tho Republic, but
thus far it haa been in the nature of

for tho position a year ago, and withdrew
in favor of Gen. Veazey. lie M ill
probably pet tho support of Gen. Veazey'e
friends, uhd is a strong candidato.
The liplit for the location of tho next
encampment is a peculiar one. The
city named after "The Father of His
CmiTiin' " umHi fhft I'lh' I'hrlRtiinpd in
honor of the later "Savior of Ilia Country,"
un<l the rivalry is sharp between
Washington nnd Lincoln. Tno capital
of the Nation has many influential
, friends on tho ground, but the energetic
little city of Nebraska has entered the
light with a Western vim and hilarity
which is winning many friends. Still
it is no injustice to Lincoln, but rather
a justifiable statement of facts, to say
that from present indications Washingtun
is in the lead. \
11. 31. ltuphncli, of the Lincoln delegation,
savs that Lincoln is the centre
of a vast territory in which reside 300,000
veterans, all of whom would prefer
1 itli'nlli 11. W'fialiinntnn r>r Anv
city. The city can accommodato 103.000
People. The gentlemen arguo that
Lincoln should have it next year on the
ground that tho encampment has met
wont of tho Mississippi but twice.
The udvantage of Washington is principally
due to tho oflorts which Secretary
l'roctor, ex-Pension Commissioner
Tanner and many other Fedoral officeholders
are exerting in behalf of the
Nation's capital, ^braska points to
tins influence as improper, and maintains
that if the encampment goes to
Washington next year, tho presidential
election year, it will bo charged by
many that it is to be manipulated for
politcal purposes.
This statement the Washington delegation

NEGItO POSTS
Of the 0. A. It. Are Maklug Troublo in
the I^oiilslnnn and 3Iiiitia*lppl Dopurt*
lucnt? How the Trouble Originated.
Chicago, Aug. 3.?Among the delegations
to tho Grand Army of tho Hepublic
national encampment at Detroit
whicli arrived in this city yesterday
was that of tho Department of Ixmigiana
and Mississippi. Comrado A. S. Graham
and othors of the delegation say in published
interviews that thov are going to
tn in n kc nn issue of the exclusion
of negroes from tiio Grand Army ranks,
and tliey deelaro that, unless these demands
art* acceded to, they will withdraw
from the organization.
They say they expect to have opposition
irom northern posts. Mr.
Graham gives tho origin of tho trouble
as follows: "The Grand Army posts of
Louisiana and Mississippi ha/e always
refused to grant charters for negro posts
on tlio ground that tho Grand Army of
the Republic, as a social organisation,
had the power to limit tho membership
to those who aro agreeable in a social
way. This policy was pursued until
about tho time of the death of Jefferson
Davis. At that time Jacob Gray, tho
officer commanding the Department of
Louisiana and Mississippi, was called
ui)ou in ins oinciai capacity uy ino
Mayor and n number of prominent citizens
of Sew Orleans to express himself
in regard to the funeral and official' ceremonies.
He roplied by pledging tho
grand army to aselet in the ceremonies
over tho remains of the ox-Confederato
chieftain.
"This act,not being in accordance with
rules and regulations of tho department,
it refused to tako any part in tho affair.
Gray, angered at tho refusal of his command
to obey his ordors to turn out ,at
Jeff Davis' funeral, said he would make
it do what was more distasteful, namely:
to march behind negro posts, which he
proposed to organize, in pursuance of
tnis threat he granted charters to nine
nejiro posts and mustered in 800 men.
This being an official act of the department
commander, these negroes arc
now members of the G. A. Jt, but the
comrades of tho departments of Louisiana
and Mississippi have refused to recognize
these posts, claiming they were
irregularly organized. The matter was
referred to the national commander and
he appointed a committee of two, coin
poscu oi uenurai uurai. uuu uuugc
Austin, to investigate tho condition of
affairs.
"Those gentlemen hare made their
investigation and havo prepared a report
against the loyalty ot the organisation
of tho negro 1)08ts. If they aro
found to bo all fight they will bo admitted
in a separate and independent
department, believing, as they do, that
a mixed department cannot exist in tho
department of Louisiana and Mississippi
to the best interests of tho Grand
Army of tho Republic."
KENTUCKY ELECTIONS.

Constitution Goes with the Pot.
Lomsvili.b, Kv, Aug. 3.?With a

the Court of Appeals/ All are Democrats
and go in by majorities ranging
from 20,000 to 40,000. The Republican
party has in - Atwood,

aggressive and popular a candidate as
Bradley was four years ago, and the
Democratic majority will prohably show
an increase. Keturns arc now in, however,
from only fifty out of 110 counties
and returns are not full from these.
Tho new constitution has carriod with

IIuxtington, W. Va., Aug. 3. ?If
tho re is a futuro reward for the corresdondont
liar, tho ono at Catlettsburg'
Ky., is sure to get in on tho ground
iloor. There is no truth whatever* in
tho reports sent out from Catlettsburg
of a Bruinfleld family being killed ou
Buffalo creek, Wayne county.
No one has been killed, but there has
been some trouble over there. Caw
Brumfield lives along tho line of the
Norfolk Western railroad, now building
through that country. Many dagos,
are employed on tho road and they had
been stealing provisions from" Mr.
Urumfiold. Some days ago ho efepied a
man coming from hia corn crib and ho
-- i?J...1 u:.,i
snoi mm who a gun iuuul-u mm uuu
shot. The man, an Italian, was not
seriously hurt, but the occurrence en?tendered
bad feeling, and llrumfleld
ms been-repeatedly threatened by the
dagos, but these threats have never
been carried into execution. Bruinflcld,
however, daily fears trouble,
I though the railroad' officials have assured
hlin that none will ensuo.
Not taking into consideration the fakinglntheCutluUsburgdlsputchcs
regarding
the affair, there are in them incontrovertible
inconsistencies, Tho report
says that Brumdeld's wife and
seven children were killed. Tho truth
is, ho has been a widower for nine
months past and only has two children.
The Ailnrliarr and Ilrrald, the daily
papers of this city, both denounced the
reports In strong terms in their Issue of

Yesterday's Cincinnati Eixquirrr contains
tho following tolegram undor a
Catlettsburjr, Ky., dato:
"Tho liorriblo murder of the Brumflcld
family, as reported in yesterday's
dispatches, is correct in almost every
detail. An Enquirer reporter visited a
relative of the murdered family this
morning residing on Buffalo creek,
Wayne county, ten miles distant from
here. The family had just returned
from tho Bcenc of the fearful crime
find mpre terribly worked up over the
horrible affair. Said Mr. Brumtield, a
cousin:
Saturday morning wo hoard of the
killing ana went to tho house, fourteen
miles distant. When 1 arrlvod there
wero several hundred people gathored
at tho house. 1 went in and found the
bodies of B. Brumfiold, his wife and tour
children laid out. From tho neighbors
I learned that several weeks ago Mr.
Brumtleld lost a quantity of wheat by
theft. He watched for tho depredators
several nights, and about two weeks
since discovered a man in his wheat
biif and filled him full of shot.
The thief proved to be an Italian.
After receiving tho wounds, from which
an ordinary man would have died, he
made his way to camp. Tho wounded

the shooting and swore vengeance. Mr.
Bruinfield was a man of undoubted
courage, and paid no attention \o the
threats of tho dagos.
As to the actual commission of the
terrible crime it is best told in tho language
of little I.illie llrumtield, the onlv
survivor of tho family. The child fs
very bright for one of its ago, and tells
the details of the horriblo murder in u
straightforward manner. She says:
Papa, mamma and us children were
out in front of tho house talking when
three or four Italians came up from the
railroad camp and asked mamma to sell
'them some milk. Mamma got up from
her chair and went into the liousetogot
tho milk. I went with her, as I am
afraid of Italians. Mamma was ahead
of me, and just as she went out the
kitchen door?tho milk was kept outside
the house on a high shelf?a man hit lici
on the head. I screamed and started tc
go buck, when I saw three or lour 01
the men kitting at papa and brother
Both of them (oil down, and then the
men started after ray three sisters, whe
were screaming all tho titnu.
I got so scared that I hid under the
bed. Aftor they had killod all of thcic
the men came in the house and looked
through all the drawers of the bureau
and took papa's monoy he kept there.
They woro there an awful long timo
but they llnally wont away. After the)
had been gone.a long time I peeped oul
from under tho bed and could not se<
any one. I then went out Into thi
yard and saw iny poor papa and brothci
and sister lying there 011 tho ground. 1
cried a long time, aftor which I wonl
up to Mr. Spuirlock's house and toll
them what bad liapponed, and thci
came down to our house and put then
! all on tho bed. They mado me go tc
i Bleep, and that is all I know nbont It.
when asked if sho couldJdentify ail]
of the men, sho said lbs dm aot know
us it was about dork when they came
to tho house. The little girl is not over
0 or 7 Years of age, and is a remarkably
bricht'child.
The bodies of the murdered people
were horribly cashed with knives, and
presented a sickening sight A general
funeral was held this morning at the
neighborhood church, and tho dead
were consigned to their last rosting
place. The funeral was attended by n
largo multitude, who were continually
swearing vengauco against the perpetrators
of tho terrible crimo.

pasted through thin place, coming
from tho direction of Went Virginia.
No attention was paid to tho matter at
the time, aa tho passing of a body of
Italians is n frequent occurrence. As
soon us Sheriff Spurlock heard of the
murder he summoned a posse of tho
most determined and brave men in
Wayne county and started upon a
search for the'murdererj. Ever}' Italian
camp on the N. & W. railway has
been thoroughly searched, and should
they be fortunate enough to discover
the murderers, a repetition of the terrible
New Orleans affair will be tho result,
with no time given for jury bribery.
Tho population is thoroughly
aroused and determined that blood
shall be the only atonement.
B. lirumfleld, tho murdered man,
was about forty-five years of ojo,
wealthy and stood 'second to none in
tho estimation of tho pooplo of Wayne
county. Ho leaves a host of relatives,
who will oiler a heavy roward for tho
apprehension of his slayers. Tho end

their lire childron in Wayne county,
W. Va., on Friday last hy n crowd of
drunken Italian laborers employed on
tho Norfolk & Western railroad, and in
an editorial commenting ou the crimo
says: "This horriblo outrage will assuredly
hare its full effect between tho
Americans and Italian immigrants.
The swarms of Italians who cross
the Atlantic aro by far the most objectionable
of all the emigrants who go to
America. They appear to have
lost their only visible merit?that of
sobriety. Self defense in some States
where the State protection is exceedingly
elementary, becomes not only a right
but & duty. The murderors in this case
will undoubtedly receive their deserts
from the people of West Virginia, and
it will then l?o seen if Italy will demand
a Federal inquiry with a view to procuring
compensation^ If Italy should
do so the answer that will be made to
her demand will perhaps be shorter
and sharner thaft the one previously
made by tlie United States Govoroqjent
in replv to Italy's demand for compensation
lor tho families of the Italians
lynched at Now Orleans. That country
which cannot deal efficiently with its
own murderers must not obicct to any
sort of law that does the work for it."

THE NEXT CONCLAVE.

eminent Straining Every Nerve to Have
It field In the Eternal City.
Bomb, Aug. 3.?"Whoro shall tho next
conclave bo held" is a question which
is now being much discussod in Governmental
circles. Tho Church dignitaries
are intorested observers. This
question, it is uoueveo, win uuuiujiiwk
of the policy both of the Italian GovI
eminent anil the Vatican.
There is good authority for tho statement
that the Italian governmont hug
sent explicit instruction to its representatives
abroad to prevent tliir conclave
from being held away from Kome.
11 dreads above all tilings aforeign Pope
and a conclave away from tho eternal
citv. The account of the situation which
follows reflects tho opinions entertained
in ecclestical circles. All the Italian
governments confidential negotiations
with tho great powers are believed to
bo inspired with this dominating idea
that Italy will respect and safeguard
the liberty of the conclavo, and therefore
no nation should offer its hospitality
to the sacred coHego, should tue
cardinals decide to hold tho conclavo
elsewhere than at Rome.
Italy hopes that hor attitude will
cause the sacred college to abandon all
idea of leaving Rome, or if the idea is
still cherished privately that the design
will not receive outside support.
Tho meeting of tho conclave out of
Rome would not only awaken in Catholic
and independent minds the idea that
tho Holy See was not free at Rome, but
it would also mark a new doparturo in
the part of tho Papacy; tho beginning
of a now era. In any case It would render
tho future an absolute uncertainty.
Perhaps it would bo tho starting point
of transformation of the central government
of tho church.
