an improving quality, nnd a lowering price.
Ho spoke of tho rceont political contest,
during which nltneks had been nmdd on
Warner Miller, because at 'tho request of tala
Aeseclatlon ho appeared before a Congressional
Committee to present tho facta regarding paper
manufacture.
Secretary Chapin reported regarding tho re
oucst that tho mills oloto from 0 p. m. Saturday
to6a.tn. Monday, Instead of stopping at 11 p.
m Saturday and bcglnhlng at la. in. Monday.
The few replies received wore uniformly against
any change In working hours.
O a Woolfortb, from tho Committee on Ex
ports, reported tbnt .107 manufacturers bud,
olfcrod 89Jtons for export without limit as to
price. Tho lucrcaso In tho export of paper In
IKOovor 1873 had boon 10,600 tons. Ho rooom
mended Government subsidies to steamship
lines.
WARNER MILLER,
In an address, said It seemed natural for papor-'
make* to go Into politics, Instancing Gov. Rico,
of Miwachusotts, and others. Regarding tbo
Incrcasl of business, bo said tbo output of tbo
mills the past year bad boon fully 20 per cent
over the year before, and paper Is sold in New
York as low, quality for quality, ns In London.
Regarding tbo tariff, bo said that, while tho av
enge duties on oil articles Importod’Js 46 por
eoot, paper only has a protection of 20 per cent
on ordinary qualities and 33 on flno. Ho an
nounced himself as In favor of aldlug in tlfo es
tablishment of
STEAMSHIP LINKS TO SOUTH AMERICA,
so that American manufacturers can send goods
there other ways than by way of London. Ho
tboughtjt would bo us well for tbo Government
to pay for prompt and perfect mall Hues to
foreign ports as for star routes In Western Ter
ritories. InGermauy, a fow years ago, bo found
t mill rawing on a peculiar kind of paper for
Brazil Re found, on bis return, tbnt bo could
make that papor cheaper than tbo Gormans
could, out bo could not put it down In Drar.lt as
cheap as tbo Gormans did, solely because tbo
only steamship lines to Droxll are from Europe.
Ho believes tboAmorlcan manufacturers should
to given facilities to secure tho trado of that
continent, and
IIK SHOULD DO WHAT HE COULD
to secure that end.
Attention was called to tbo decision of tlbo
Fostmaslor-Qcncral construing tho law of 1873
so os to make samples with “ marks for Idcntlfl
cation "pay first-class rates instead of fourth
class.
Senator Miller said be bad no doubt tbo dools
loa of Postmaster-General Key was too literal
lacooitralag tho law of 1870, and groat losses
bad been suffered by tho Government from
such decision.

Vnrciinrrxm Ky., July 57.-A largo crowd

young lady did cot favor him at all.
Yesterday afternoon ho oamo again, registered
at th'o above-named hotel, and took a walk with
her in the Townsend House Park. They evi
dently disagreed about something, for sbo loft
him there and went to a bop that evening with
another young moo. This morning his body was
discovered with a bullet-hole through his bead
from a small 33-oallbro pocket-pistol which lay
beside biro. Among other things found In bis
pocket was a note to bis roommate, which read

- Wo will wager something that you (moaning

Canada, or from what It is derived, if you give
up, here It Is, John Leeds Uusman, In bis history
of Maryland, says that when the Spaniards tint
landed on the Canadian coast they looked around
for awhile, and fludlng no Indications of gold
or silver, orled out, "Aca nada." meaning
*• There Is nothing here." The Indians, bearing
this phrase so much, employed It to designate
the Spaniards after they were gone. When tho
French arrived, being while, the Indians took
them for the tame kind of people, and cried
out, ••Acauada, Aca undo." Tbo French sup
posed ibis to bo tbe name of tbo country, and,
dropping the t, called It Canada. Ur. lineman
says there Is the best authority for believing this
to be the true derivation of the name.

ttpttlnl DUtxtUh to The Vhltaga Trtbiinr,
WAsiitnOTOx, D. C M July nr.—Tho publhbni
statement that Commissioner Dudley ban do*
elded upon a plan or reorganization of tbo Pun*
ston llurcau is premature. Ho is diligently
studying tho situation and seeking counsel I rom
tno«# (pialillcil to give it, with u vlow to making
•Improvements, and Is entertaining plans for Im
provement In various directions, but will not
venture to make sweeping changes until fully
convinced that Improvements ore practicable,
and tho details are (ftmvasaou In all tholr bear
ings. For tbo Internal work uf bis olllco bo
proposes, In general terms, to. make those
Examiners who aro qualified by experience,
education, or natural ability to sift evidence
and ascertain its legal value for the adjustment
of claims heads of dlvlsfoumglvlng them subor
dinates uuougb to perform the routine work re
quired In tbo eases submitted to thorn. Under
too present system be Hods that eases In which
thouvidenoo Is insulliclunt, being taken up lu
their turn with others, are placctT back In tbo
list of unsettled eases after Iho ncuossaiy nil.
dluonul evidence has been asked for. 01 ten
when those coses are reached again they do imt
go to the some Kxsminor who bud charge
of them at first, and tbo result Is
that tbo same evidence is occasionally
demanded a second time. Ho believes un Im
provement can be made In this respect, and is*
giving tbo subject such attention as no can. In
both these matters, wheu a plan of improve
ment is finally decided upon its adoption must
necessarily be a work of some time. Perhaps
tbo most important of the Commissioner’s plans
Is that In regard to tbo extension of tbo work of
Investigation at toe home of claimants by special
agents of tho Department, and fur this work ho
Is fortunately relieved from one seri
ous embarrassment under which his prede
cessor labored during tho greater portion of
bis incumbency of tho Commissloncnhfp. Un
der tho law as It existed prior to (ho last session
the special agents of tbo Department wore only ,
authorized to investigate eases In which tboro
appeared some dnllult ground for n suspicion of
fraud, but, by a changed phraseology In tbo
law, any and all coses may now bo Investigated
by tbo agents of tbo Pcnsiou-Ofllcc, wbo can call
upon and cross-examine witnesses and
secure such additional evidence wbilo upon
tbo ground us Is attainable and tbo
ease demands. Ho proposes in tbls work
to select such Examiners as have most
thoroughly mastered tbo Intricate features uf
tho pension laws, and will, In all eases except
the IhvcsttgaUoD of supposed criminal acts, re
quire Ageuts to make their Investigations with
tbo full knowledge of tbo claimant, giving him
tbo right to bo present In person or bv attorney.
Such claims as can readily be adjudicated from
the records of tbo War Department will not bo
submitted to Special Agents, in respect to the
functions of pension attorneys, Commissioner
Dudley Is considering a plan, tbo adop
tion of wblcb la some form may.
greatly Increase the usefulness of
those gentlemen, and relievo tbo Bureau
of no Inconsiderable portion of Its work. Hu
believes that tho repeal of a clause of the Pen
sion law In existence three or four years ago,
by which an attorney who bud secured a con
tract with a pension claimant was Insured by
the Government for his foe amounting to #lO
in each ease, bos worked
Under tbo present system attorneys nnittom
pulled to demand their pay In advance. ouui as a
result, they are sweeping tho country for
pension claims, and aro ready . to
toko up any and all sorts of
claims from people wbo will advance
thofcoofflu. Tuo result Is the accumulation
tof a vast number of incomplete and doubtful
claims. In wblcb the attorneys have no further
direct interest. Commissioner Dudley believes
that tbo passage of a law authorizing the
Bureau to pay tho attorney bis fee whenever a
claim Is successfully prosecuted from the pro
ceeds of tbo claim itself, and making It unlaw
ful for an attorney to receive ufcoin advance,
or demand pay for services which have not re
sulted profitably for tbo claimant, would bavu
a tendency to put n slop to the
tiling of doubtful claims. In such
cases, tbo attorneys who must, from tbolr ex
perience, buvo qualified themselves to recognize
valid claims nearly as well as tho Examiners
can themselves, would advise Intending claim
ants not to prosecute whoa they were unablo to •
produce sulllclent legal proof of tbo Justice of
tbolr demands to mako success probable. Tbe
Commissioner Is also entertaining a purpose to
require that pension attorneys shall complete
tho evidence on pension claims before tiling
them, otherwise they win not bo touched. Ho
believes that the law under which attorneys are
authorized to demand pay far tbolr services
contemplates sometbUigraoru than the Ailing out
of original applications and leaving tbo Pen
ston-OiUco Examiner and clerks to do all tho
bard work In tho case. «

BRITISH VOLUNTEERS.
The Review of Volunteers Reforo the

Ovmtpondtnte Ntw York THbuur.
London, July 11.—Tbo papers and tbo public
generally uro In a stole of dellgbt'at tbo success
of the review In Windsor Park on Saturday, and
tho dollgbt scorns abundantly Justified by tbo
merit of tbo performance. Inno country would
It bo tbougbt an easy matter to colleut ninety*
six regiments of troops from all parts of the
Kingdom on n single' parade-ground, and
send them homo again within forty*
elgot hours wirbouC a single accident or
serious hitch or misadventure of any Kind. To
do It In Knglaad would bavo been tbougbt
Jwonty years ago miraculous; and so it would
lavebcen. To do it In any country where tho
troops collected wore volunteers end nut
regulars would bavo taskoa both the ability
and tbo credulity of regular officers.
From whatever point of view ft la
considered, the feat looks a very remark*
ablouno. Tbo man who conceived tbo notion
was u bold man. Tbo authorities who took It up
bad to faco skepticism and ridicule fora long
time. It may bo said that the public, who take
an Interest In such matters, did not bcllovo
either that the volunteers would turn out In
strength, or that tooy could bo brought to tbo
ground at the time fixed, or that they would ac
quit themselves handsomely wben (hero, or tbot
they could bo fed, or could bo taken away
again without Intlolt delay and disorder. Vou
buvo only to turn over the flies of tbo paper fur
a week or two back to see bow much of tbla
croaking there was. Tbogenoral satisfaction ut
tbo failure of all these evil predictions Is pro*
Eorclonod to the general faith in them before*
and.
There are In all Kngiand about 900,000
volunteers. More ttaau uae*fourtb tbo
whole number put iu an appearance
at Windsor. Hy tbo testimony of all
observers they were a body nf real soldiers.
In pbysiqiie they are superior to tbo lino. In
perfection of drill theyareundoubtodly Inferior,
but It seems to bo admitted that in the points es
sential to military efficiency lu the field they
would be more than a tuateb for tbo same num
ber of Hritisb regulars. It la tna lament of tbe
Urltlsb officer In (besu days that tbo
troops be commands are boys.—short in stature,
—weedy lads, lll*fod. and unablu to bear fatigue.
Tbo volunteers oxclted both tbe admiration and
envy of the regular officer by tboir muscular
development, pedestrian powers, and manifest
ability lo endure a bard day's work of any kind.
Mo 00 nso lea "himself by criticising Aholr per
formance from tbe burrock-yard polnruf view.
Tbo march past did not And favor lu the eyes of
this stern censor. It did not duserve,
bo declares, tbe encomiums bestowed ou
It, Tbe volunteer officers and' .sergeants
were not up to> their work. They •‘spoilt the
appearance of tbe battalion." One mounted
officer committed the unboard-oC offense of
••bulging" bis leading company; an outrage
that apparently ought lo have been punished by
Instant death. Distances between companies
wore not always wotl kept. Supernumerary
ranks wore not *' dressed," and some of tho mou
actually bad so little sense of self*respect as to
swing (heir arms la walking. Many officers hold
their swords badly.
Of such technical criticism as this there is
Blonty, and much of It, 1 dare say, Is deserved,
ut It counts (or little against tho general
and substantial praise the volunteers bavo
fairly woo. Not the least admirable tnUur
about them vu tho spirit whivh took
thorn Into tho service and kept them there, and
which finally brought thorn In ouch number* to
Windsor. Tho volunteer movement originated
In a hurst or patriotic feeling, stimulated by
tho vaporing of French Colonels and tho poetic
war-cry of Mr. Alfred Tonnvson. Thatwos all
very well to begin with, hut a movement cannot
be kept olive by condiments of that sort. It has
lived through periods of discouragement: and
not the least of the obstacles In Its way was tho
contempt for tho volunteer, which tho regular
officer look little pains to conceal. Them will
bn less of (but to contend with after the mag
nificent display of Halurday. Our friend who
worries over Irregular distances and awkward
salutes Is lint a faint coho of morn august dis
pleasure that used to rain down on tho volun

sided .over the ceremony at Windsor, and it
Is through bis mouth that the Qiiccu expresses
her personal satisfaction with tho bearing and
romluot of her volunteer troops. Tho Queen’s
desire to review them bad a great deal to do
with the eagerness of tha men to bo reviewed.
Her presence, It may bo added, evoked ah
enthusiasm not too often shown in those days:
or. If shown, reserved forotber members of tho
Itoyal family. Tho Dnko is the Incarnation of
everything that Is professional and technical In
the military world: with a profound respect for
routine, and a permanent conviction that a

Other observers, who saw mom than lb« Duke
‘could see. speak with equal emubitsls of tho
good conduct of tho troops on the Journey, the
excellent order and discipline shown in entering
mid leaving trains and stations, their sobriety,
and their admirable discipline,—which hereto
fore has been u weak point in this force. Tho
railways did their work to the surprise of every
body. There was no block anywhere, and
hardly any delay. Homebody with a
bead on his shoulders had hern found
to make tho arrangements: or, ns It would
seem, two sane Itodles with heads, for
the Great Western and the Southwestern Rail
way decided the work between them. They have
shown that It is possible to concentrate an army
upon f.omlon within a very short time.—shorter
than the time an Invader must take to reach
the English shores, supposing be could reach
them at all. it Is to be remembered, however,
that iu this case they dealt with nothing but tho
personnel of an army. The railways brought no
rood, no guns, no ammunition, no horses, no
baggage. Every soldier curried his rations in n
haversack ami his drinking water or other
drinking fluid in a bottle.
A SHOCKING TRAGEDY AT
PADUCAH.
Benton to Death by a Follow-Convict—
Tlio Murderer Killed by the Odleem.
Paducah, Ky., duly 24.—This city bus been all
ngog to-day over a most brutal murder and fatal
shootlag, which occurred in tbo Jut! of this
county at this place, a few minutes before 7
o’clock this morning. Levi Holden and Jobu
Stewart,.two colored moo, tbo former a convict
to tbo Frankfort Penitentiary for four years for
highway robbery, and tbo latter a convict for
eltrblcen months, for larceny, were confined In
tbo sumo cell, and bud been together for tun
months.
About three months since Holden, having In
some manner obtained a small saw from an out*
sldu friend, made an attempt to free himself,
but through Stewart telling a female friend
what Holden was doing tbo Jailer beard of the
work and secured iho saw. Tola enraged Hot*
den. and be swore vengeance, asserting that bo
would kill tho (Jailer and some one else, as ho
never expected to go to tbo Penitentiary. No
notice was taken of tbo threat, though since
often repeated. Who else Holden meant to kill
besides tho Jailer never occurred until to*duy,
when tbo threat was partially carried out.
Yesterday the Jailer announced that tho pris
oners, together with nlno others, would start for
Frankfort this morning, and about the hour
named a few friends were admitted to tbo Jail
yard fora farewell talk with thorn. Taking ad-
tbo Deputy Jailer, and bis. last
chance to carry out his throat, Boidou.wltba
largo bar of iron from a bunk wblcbbebudln
some manner secured and secreted in bis coll,
assaulted Stewart from behind, knock
ing him to the floor with one lick, and.
Jumping upon him, literally pounded bis beau
into a Jelly, while bo crushed in bis breast-bone
by repeatedly kicking and Jumping upon him.
Tho odes of Stewart for mercy caused tbo other
prisoners and visitors to cry ••Murdcrl" and
thus attracted to the Jail the Jailer and his
Deputy and tbo County Judge, wbo live
near. Tboy ran Immediately to tbo Jail,
but wben they arrived they found nil still.
Ascertaining toe cause ofj tbo disturbance,
they wont to tho cell occupied by Holden and
Stewart, and, culling them, asked tbo trouble,
being unable to detect auytnlmr wrong owing to
tbo darkness of tbo cell. - Holden answered
••Nothing”; but wben .Stewart was called and
failed to answer, the Jailer concluded all Jwas
not right, and, with drawn pistol, backed by bis
deputy and tbo County Judge, opened tbo cell
and told Holden to corao out.: lie refused, and
when tbo Jailer threatened to shoot him, ho re
plied that ho didn’t ”caro ad-n."
With this tbo Jailer made a start as if to en
ter the cell,,wben Holdou raised bis olu b and ran
out of tbo coll.strlklngat tbo Jailor os bedld so.
Tbo Jailor barely escaped tbo lick by dodging,
but the Deputy, wbo stood near, was struck
across tbo breast and knocked down. In the
corridor of tbo Jail Holden turned upon tho
three ulllolals, and had raised bis club to strike
again, wbon three shots were beard, and Holden
fell shot through tbo body near tho novel sM
through tho bead. Ills death was Instanta
neous.
Investigation developed that Stewart was also
doatl, and life bad likely left bits before Uoldon
ceased bis murderous assault Upon him. Hol
den was a treochcrous and hardened prisoner,
and Stewart quiet and iooircoslvc. The Coro
ner’s Imiucst justified the shooting ot Holden by
the ofllcials.
As stated, there was considerable excitement
over the shooting, and the scene of the murder
and shooting bos been visited by hundreds
during the day. In the midst of the excitement
this morning, when the Court-House yard was
flllod with excited blocks, tbo County Judge had
to address and explain Ibe shooting and cause
before tney would disperse.

Boston, July ST.—TboUov. John 11. Barrows,
of Maverick Church, East Boston, Is cooUnod to
his bouse with rheumatism, hut It is
understood ho Is still umlooldetl whether
to accept tho call : to the First
Presbyterian Church, Chicago. When It was In*
tlmated to him several weeks ago that ho could
rccolvoacnll tboro bo peremptorily declined:
but new elements have arisen, and n formal call
Is supposed to bo on the way bore. This will not
bo accepted without further consideration, al*
though tho salary offered Is SO,OOO, against SO,OOO
in East Boston. Mr. Barrows Is not and has not
been a candidate fur the Chicago pastorate, and
it Is doubtful if be could be prevailed on to
leave his present charge, by vybom be Is uni*

Ixmaot body since tbo iidvont of tbo canal*
'UlMers,suatou(by tbo Do Lessops company,
celebrated the anniversary of tbo fall of tbo

was Riven on tbo night of tbo Kith, and on tbo
following day there wore Rames lu tbo oatbodml
& Illuminations ut night, a concert. by -tbo
if tbo Zapaduros, and a grand banquet at
tbo (irand Hotel. Tbo day passed off agreeably,
and was Mattering to tbe pride of tbo sous of
Franco. The people— nt least tbo better classes
oftbo-natlvu population—manifested little nr
no enthusiasm, and, In fact, regard rather coldly
tbo oew'cumora from Franco. Tbo Fourth of
July ornuyothor national festival would have
provoked a greater outburst of sentiment than
did tbo Htbuf July among tbo Panamenos.
