Senator Davis keep* Ills own counsel, 11a
will not leave Uio Senate or accept any oHlcu
from Uio President, should (leu. Arthur
tender one. Democratic Senators hero do
the President the honor to express the belief
that ho would not for a moment enter*
tain a suggestion to capture the Sen
ate by getting Judge Davis out of
IU If the Senator desired to
quit the Senate In any such manner, ho had
an opportunity some months ago, for Gen.
Qarllcld, whoso respect for Judge Davis was
tendeiied him two piiomisknt offices
nt Ions!, and those being refused, requested
Judge Davis to say whether there wits any
office In tho gift of tho Executive which ho
desired. This olTor was not made to maku
nn opening for a Itepubllcan Senator from
Illinois, but to express to Judge Davis
tho President’s appreciation of his
Abilities. Put Uio Senator said that
ho must respect tho trust ho had ac
cepted from his State. it Is not
generally known that iloseoo Conkllng, to
whom Judge Davies spoke of the tender
that had been mndo by the President, nt mice
said that Senator Davis could not afford to
quit thoSenale. Such was tho story during
the recent special session of tho Senate.
Senator Davis will in nil probability volo
with the Democrats to continue tho present
ofllcersof tho Senate, and also will vote for
a Democratic Secretary. The Eepnbllenns
cannot elect a Secretary, nor can the Demo
crats if tho Senntors-elcct bo admitted be
fore the ballot is taken, but
cares far more about Ids place on the com
mittees than about tho Senate oOlccs. A
good dent of bargaining and intrigue precede
committee appointments. In tho arrange
ment of committees Inst spring there was
considerable dissatisfaction. New commit
tees must be appointed. The President will
send In several appointments which must bo
referred to committee. The Senate being a
tie, a caucus conference committee of the
two parties is likely to arrange the commit
tees. There will bo no little diniculty In ar
ranging the choice in committees, and
somebody Is going to be badly disappointed.
among Democratic candidates for the posi
tion of Secretary of the Senate. They nil
presume that the Democrats are to organize
that hoily, or, ht least, that if they fall to se
cure the presiding olllcur the Republicans
will permit them to elect the Secretary of
the Senate. Tho Democrats nil appeal' to
concede that In tho event that they can elect
a Secretary that olUce Is to go to tho South.
At all events, nil Die candidates are
from the South. Among tho most prom
inent nro Col. L. Q. Washington, of
Virginia, a well-known Southern journalist,
who failed only by trickery ot receiving the
Democratic nomination for Sergennt-al-
Arms of tho Senate when the Democrats had
undoubtedly control of that body, and who
would bo a very competent person for tho
olllce if a Democrat must have it, as ho Is
familiar with political history and tho usages
of tho Senate;
a gentleman of some political inlhicnee in his
section, and of largo social acquaintance
everywhere; Col. William McArdcll, of
Mississippi, a progressive Southern editor;
Decs B. Edmanston, of Tennessee, of whom
comparatively little is known here; and Gen.
Pierce M. D. Young, of Georgia, formerly n
member of Congress from that Slate, and
more recently one of tho Commissioners to
tho Purls Exposition. There are also two
ex-Sonators candidates for this subordinate
position In tho body of which they wore
formerly members. They are ex-Sonator
Wlthorsjtof. Virginia, and ex-Sonator Dennis,
of Maryland. Mr. Withers, who wos re
cently threatened with entire blindness, is
said to have entirely recovered. Ex-Senator
Dennis, who was once befuru a candidate
for Secretary of tho Senate, and was de
feated thou on the ground, it was
alleged, that tho Senators did nut consider It
prudent to make an ex-Senntor a subordinate
ofllcer. Is again a candidate for tho position.
Mr. Dennis is a man of very considerable
wealth, and evidently seeks the olllce only
lor political distinction. -Meanwhile tho
Republicans insist that tho Democrats are
not to elect anybody Secretary.
About half a dozen Democratic Senators
have arrived here, all from the South. Mr.
Garland Is tho only ono who seems to enter
tain an idea that a compromise with tho Re
publicans Is possible on a basis of tho Demo
crats being allowed to elect tho Secretary.

Washington, 1). U. Oct. O.—A prominent
Southern Senator said today to a Western
Associatod Press Agent; “If wo take this
step and elect the President of tho Senate, It
wilt give tho Itopnblluun press an opportu
nity to raise the question of sectionalism
again, and they will take advantage of It.
They will say that a temporary majority of
tho Senate, dominated *by the Souih, has
seized this oßlce In tho hope of getting con
trol of tho Government In the event of tho
death of President Arthur. I do not mean that
any respectable portion of tho Republican
press will suggest that tho Democratic party,
or unymemborof It, would nssnshmtoArthur
to got tho Presidency of the United Slates.
This Idea has been advanced as an argument
against tho election of a Democrat, but it Is
only entertained by minds base enough to
conceive and commit such a crime for selllsh
purposes. It Is scouted and condemned by
all decent people, ihit the important con
sideration In this matter Is that the Smith
only can bo Injured by a revival of sectional
110 not wont nny Notional power beyond our
representative portion to wlileh wo nro en
titled. The Presidency of the Senate Is on,
empty honor nt heat, especially ns the Senate
la now constituted, except for the fact that
only one life stands between It and the tem
porary Presidency of the United States. Por
my part, It I had my way, 1 would elect a
Conservative llopnldlean to that position, if
the Itepuhlleans would accord us Die Secre
taryship and half of the committees. This
plan would prevent the revival of
sectionalism which I foresee ami
dread, and, besides, In a .material
point of view, half the committees are worth
more than the Presidency of. the Senate. Of
course 1 shall be irovorned by the majority
of my party, but 1 Intend to slate my views
plainly In caucus. Since sectional imitation
has ceased the South has prospered as never
before, and, os X said, Its revival can only in
jure the South." This Senator will, no
dhubt, express these views In the parly cau
cus, and ho will, from present Indications,
find others to uirreu with him, but the major
ity vole will probably control the caucus.
to avoid any contest grows move apparent os
tho time for a decision of the question ap
proaches, and It Is not improbable that a
basis for a unanimous organization of the
Senate may be reached.
says tho Democrats should certalulyuleot tho
presiding ofllcer of the Senate, then allow
three Seimtors-olect to be sworn in, and
divide tho other oflleers and committees
equitably between the parties. He says the
attitude of the Democratic Senators towariL
Arthur will be no different from that occu
pied toward (larlleld. Arthur made u favor
able personal Impression on the Democratic
Senators, and there U no reason why Ids
accession to tho Presidency should bo looked
upon us a misfortune.

Uio Uicory and practice of our Government
Is that tho majority shall rule. We have a

Washington, I). C., Oct. (>.—Gultcau was
not arraigned today, ns had been somewhat
expected, and it Is not now probable that ho
will bo before tho return from New York of
Mr. Scoville, of Chicago, his lawyer and
counsel, where ho has gone (o make ar
rangements for additional counsel, and, if
possible, to secure evidence bearing on Uio
question of insanity. Mr. Scoville, beforo
leaving, stated to tho District-Attorney that
ho did not wish to delay tho trial a day, but
that he desired to be present at tho arraign
ment, if pussibl e, and wished to make further
arrangements for counsel. District-Attorney
Corkhllt said that of course the case could
not bo delayed, but that
was not material to tho time of the trial, ns
tho arraignment itself, for that matter, euntd
without prejudice to the case bo delayed, If
necessary, till tho very day that tho trial
should begin, and that lie would defer tho
arraignment until Mr. Scoville returned, un
less Ids absence should be too protracted.
Meanwhile, however, tils indictment will bo
formally presented in court by the grand
jury. That can be done without the pres
ence of Gultoun, and it probably will be done
tomorrow. Mr. Scoville hopes to secure ad
ditional counsel In New York, and to have
one lawyer, at least, who is familiar with
criminal trials.
To tht ItViUrn Annotated Prut,
Washington, D. C m Oct. o.—The publica
tion of Gultcnu’s biography in the JfewYork
Herald today occasioned much unfavorable
commcntof tho methods of District-Attorney
Corkhlll. Tho deception practiced upon the
prisoner is generally condemned ns not In
the Interests of Justice. As n whole, the
document Is susceptible of proof as the gen
uine words of Gultean, and would tend
rather to fortify tho plea of insanity. Unl
teuu dictated the narrative under a belief
and with Uie understanding that It should bo
published In pamphlet form for his benelit,
tho money to go to aid him in his defense,
whereas it was sold by tho stenographer of
the District-Attorney to thoifcmld for his
own benefit.
Special DUoatch to The Chicago TVUmnc.
Washington, D. C., Oct. o.—Representa
tive George R. Davis has succeeded In secur
ing an order from Acting Postmaster-Gen
eral Elmer for nn examination Into tho neces
sity for an additional suh-post-otllce on the
West Side, In tho vicinity of Western avenue
or lloyne avenue and Madison street. This
subject was presented to the department a
long tlmo since by n formidable petition
numbering something like 100,000 peo
ple interested In tho matter. The sub
ject was referred to tho special agent of tho
Free Delivery Division, who reported against
it. Congressman Davis has been of the
opinion that If tho matter could bo referred
loan agent of the Stamp nr Registry Divis
ion a very different report would bo received,
inasmuch as It is now impossible to secure a
stump or registered letter In that part of tho
city without a long journey.
today, at Representative Davis’ request, re
ferred the matter to Special Agent Stewart,
of Chicago, who Is now here, and who will
give tho subject the consideration which Is
duo to It upon his return to Chicago next
week. Congressman Davis himself leaves
for Chicago tomorrow. Ho hod quite a long
interview with
today, and Is convinced that tho latter will
give tho country a bonellcent and' conserva
tive Administration. Mr. Davis is of tho
opinion that the Jtepubllcans will organize
tho Senate, securing the President pro tem
pore. and that tho three llepnbllcan Senators
will bo admitted to voto before tho election of
a presiding nlllcor takes place. Mr. Davis
also thinks that Judge David Davis is likely
to vote with tho ilepubliuaus, and his
voto, with those of tho three other Jte
publicans, wilt give tho itepublicaus the
continued control of the Senate.

Connell to tho desirability of taking some
steps towards having tho present law of as

sessment of personal property. Thu busi
ness-man who invests, say, 3i>,000 or 350,000
In business Is compelled to pay a tax on the
lull amount thereof, while thomaii who in
stead of engaging in business invests his
capital in mortgages or securities Is only
asked to pay upon the Interest derived from
the same, or. In other words, the man in
business pays upon Ids full capital while Uio
man out of business onlv pays upon Uio in
terest of his capital. This Is certainly not
much encouragement to the employment of
capital in business undertakings, ami. in his
opinion, acts very unjustly towards tho man
of enterprise.

Montreal, Oct O.—A sad event has be
come known in Montreal, being tho disap
pearance of Mr. Charles E, Bourne, tho
Treasurer for many years of tho Montreal
Telegraph Company. That gentleman has
been very down-spirited for some time, hav
ing been among tho number of olllclnls who
lost their situations by tho late amalgama
tion, Ho was a gonial, kindly gentleman,
ami, should any misadventure have befallen
him, he will ho mourned by a largo circle of
irlomls. Opinions are divided on tho theo
ries ns to Air. Bourne’s disappearance, some
believing that he grew desperate over his
altered fortunes, and that he has been rash
enough to bid farewell to a life struggle.
01110111 believe that helms left for tho United
Stales, and that he will not beeaslly discour
aged. An Investigation is at present going
on Into his accounts, and, us the sure had to
he opened by a gentleman from Toronto
who was cognizant of the combination lucks,
tho latter-named theory may be correct. Ills
family recently went to New Brunswick to
reside, amt It Is not known whether they
were acquainted with tho disappearance or
not. Some of thotelCgraph people cling to Urn
hope that Mr. Bourne Ims merely gone off
suddenly to visit his family, ile was promi
nent as a music amateur, amt was Secretary
of tho Philharmonic Association. Socially
ho held a very high position, amt was very
much beloved by all who met him. It is
said that examination of tho hooks leaves no
doubt but that the cause Is his having am
nroprlated funds belonging to the company,
but to what amount is not dellnltly ascer
tained, but It Is expected It will be very con
siderable. It is believed that the unfortunate
gentleman had lost money in speculation.
The greatest fears are entertained that ho
may have put an end to his life.

Con’MiiL's, 0., Dot. o.—Another chapter in
the manner of conducting tho political cam
paign in Ohio by tile Tlldeu-llookwalter
combination lias leaked out, and it may bn
said not a moment too soon to bo of ad
vantage to the Republicans. For several
days there hasbcenanntiecahlcqnlutaround
tho Democratic quarters, and 11 was given
out that the work of tho committee and the
literary bureau had ended. The Democrats
hovering around on the street-cornel's wore
dejected expressions on their faces, while
thoconlidencoof tho Kepubllcan.s Increased
proportionately. -11 now transpires that
this apparent apathy on tho part
of tho Democratic managers was tho pro
gram mado out with n view of deceiving tho
Republican Committee. It appears that Mr.
llookwaller, Hinting that tho tide setting
against him threatened his complete over
throw, and that the only hope of success left
was in the free and unstinted use of money,
a private consultation was held n few days
ago, thu result of which was tho donation of
u large sum of money. Thu same night the
majority of tho committee having .Mr.
IJookwultcr’s Interest to look after
left Uie city, and are yet absent.
Lust night Mr. Mookwnlter held another
consultation, when more funds wero placed
In the hands of thu Chairman of tho com
mittee, Mr. llookwnlter leaving at midnight
with a view of working tho Licking County
Fair today. At an early hour this morning
there was apparently great activity about
tho Democratic quarters, nml it was dis
covered that tho ward politicians, who had
heretofore shown no interest, were en
thusiastic, and nt once went on the streets
advocating tho election of thu Democratic
ticket. Among the number who received
money from tho Mookwuller-Tilden
fund today wore a small num
ber of renegade Republicans, some
of whom have been pensioners fur
years. Fiom reliable Democratic authority,
It Is learned that .Mr. Ilonkwalter will place
SIOO,OOO whore It will do tho must good If tho
committee think such an outlay necessary to
secure tho Gubernatorial chair. It Is also
stated that Mr. Tilden’s interest in tho Ohio
campaign Ims revived, and that he has con
tributed liberally to tho campaign fund. lie
is specially interested in tho Democrats
gaining tho control of tho Legislature,
which would rcdlstrlct tho State for Con
gressional purposes, Insuring a Democratic
majority In the Ulilo delegation. By aid
ing In this manner, it is claimed Unit
Mr. Tllden can rightfully claim tho support
of tho Democratic Congressmen two years
lionce. The RepqJUleuns wero today awak
ened to thu danger threatening tho success of
Iho party on Tuesday next. During the day
dispatches have been received from various
points detailing thu work being done by thu
Tllden-Uookwalteragonts. Tho reports are
of such a character as to place beyond all
question tho fact that these secret emissaries
arc working In every county,nut school dis
trict in Ohio, aiding tho I’ruliibltlonists in u
substantial way with a view of reducing ttio
Republican vote hi all Um close or doubtful
districts. To save this (Franklin) county
there has been uniosl lavish outlay during
thu day, amt. as a lending Democrat re
marked, thu moral sensibilities of a Tam
many Chief would have been shocked to have
witnessed thu reckless distribution ot thu
swag. It Is not an idle assertion to say that
tho Democrats have an abundance of money
—much mure, in fact, than they ever had In
a Presidential struggle. While tho Repub
lican managers wero aware that tho Tllden
combination were working hard, they wero
not prepared to butiuvo that money was be
ing so freely given out or that thorn
were so many agents at work ns tho develop
ments ot today indicate. To overcome the
very corrupt Inlluences that have marked
Mr. nookwaller’s lino of march shorn hu
bought Ids nomination, a very full Republic
an vote must bo polled on Tuesday next.
Republicans arc snlticlont In number to elect
tho entire Statu ticket and both branches of
thu Legislature, if they cun bu awakened
and gut to thu polls. Unless this can be done,
It Is not probaulu that tho same means used
to secure his nomination will fall to buy the
oxocutlvo chair.

St. Paul, Minn., Oct. o.—Tho Democratic
Convention today wgs a tamo and spiritless
affair. Tho nominations were made only for
tho sake of going through tho motions. Tho
nominee for Governor, Gen. W. Jl. Johnson,
Is a retired army oflleer, who was on
Thomas'stalf, and has written his life. Ho
Is not an active politician, and will bo a more
dignified lignrohend to tho ticket. Tho rest
of the ticket was nmUu up on tho principle
of giving oftlccs by acclamation to anybody
who would tako them. The only actum upon
tho candidates that Ims any signification was
tho recommendation to support of tho Dum
cratio voters of tho present Supremo Court
Judges, including Grconleaf and Clark, de
feated In Republican Convention. Thu action
took tlds form because Clark had refused to
permit Ids name to go before tho Con
vention for actual nomination. Sumo of tho
delegates from Hennepin Couniy, tho homo of
Judge Van Derburg, Clark’s opponent, op
posed this action, but it was carried by ac
clamation, and with cheers. Ills thought
many Kcpubiicuns who are dissatisfied with
the bargain by which- Van Derlim-gwas nom
inated will veto for Clark. Thu resolutions
are almost entirely devoted to tho burnt ques
tion, Ignored by tho ituimhlicmi Convention
hist week. They declare that the Democratic
party now, os in P»r»U, Is opposed to repudia
tion and In favor of the payment of the Imnds.
Thu convention all the same smothered a
resolution commending Gov. Pillsbnry for
proposing aspccilie plan of settlement. There
was a large repudiation element in tho con
vention, hut It consented to these resolutions
hi the hope to discredit and embarrass (ho Jlu
