Senator Plumb was atTopckaou Moo-
day of this week, and was interviewed
by a reporter from the Common wealth.
The following opinions were elicited
from him on mailers of public interest :
There is, of course, a deep interest
taken by Republicans in Washington
concerning the senatorial situation at
Albany, as there lias been at all auees
of the Oookling-Garflcld imbroglio; hot
aa far as the cabinet is coocemol there is
little difference perceptible. That the
.members of the various department arc
in accord, and that all is workiug
smoothly, there is no doubt. The talk
about James or MacVcagh, or any mem
ber of Uie cabinet being upon uie hiiii
of tendering hrs resignation is wholly
sensational, wiuioul any ionnuaiion

wings pl tha Republican party would be

one administration senator would be

New Yohk. June 22. From the tjuI
ic record of business already uone, no
support whatever ia afforded for the as
sertion - that business ia declining or
stagnant; on the contrary, whoever re
ports trututullv is compeiieu to state
that the volume of businoss, both ccit
imate and speculative, whether measured
in quantities or in values, never was as
larirc before as at the present time.
At this season lor a little time specula
tion in stocks has been duller than be
fore, but exchanges in this city have been
remarkably large from the outset. The
Mew York exchange for the three weeks
endue June ISth was tno largest on re
cord for three consecutive weeks, and
exceeds the hitherto unequuled returns
for three weeks of May by nearly
.Last vear. exchanges at cities outside
of New York amounted to $344,033,328,
which ia larger- by nearly $12,000,000
than the largest amount ever previously
recorded for the third week of the month,
and closely approaches the largest ever
known tor the second week. Js,very city
reports an increase in comparison with
the transactions of the corresponding
week last year. At every city the in
crease is over ten per cent.; at sixteen
cities over twenty per cent, at nine over
thirty, ana at nve over iocty, wnue uie
two largest cities outside of New. York
report gains of fifty-six per cent, at Bos
ton and fifty-nine per cent, at Philadel
phia, mo increase in the aggregate
outside of New lork is extraordinarily
larce. amountinir to fortv-fivc ncr cent..
and only a very small part or tins ad
vance can be attributed to tho advance
in prices. The fact is undeniable that
the volume ot business represented by
payments actually made through banks
is larger than it ever was before. Indeed,
while some speculators arc going up and
down, croaking continually, some of the
largest merchants frankly admit that
they have never seen larger business.

' Wichita, Kans.. June 28. The dis
patch here on- Saturday, giving an ac
count or uie puenomcnai storm which
swept down the valley, comprehended
but a fraction of the disastrous results
that have since been reported. A sec

the Arkansas river, in this county, sur-
fercd greatly. The standing crops of
wheat, corn, oats, etc., or tens or thou
sands of acres, were cut down by the
hail, level with the ground. Even the
Crairie crass was mown clean. Many
uildinga were damaged, and apples,
peaches and grapes were stripped from
trees and vines for a strip of ten miles
wide by twenty miles or moro up and
down the valley.
' The electrical storm of Friday night
was repeated atia Saturday night with
more direful effects. Mr. E. Pendergrast,
a saddle and harness dealer, was struck
dead by lightning. He was standing by
an open window of his home. At least
