epeclal Washington correspondence, a
quMtion of veracity hat ariten between
th preeident and Senator Conkliug. Tbo
president affirm that the itatement in th
paper that Conkling had refuted tho chief
juiticcibip wai not true, at he had not
been offered it, and consequently had no
opportunity to refuto (it. On the other
hand, Conkling lay he wi offered tho
chief justiceship and tbat.be did refute it.
And to the matter ttandt.
Kuimotri a the bill introduced in
Uengreu for the repeal of tho lalarr bill
have been, they all, w believe, provido
for a only a partial repeal of that meas
ure. Thoee Introduced by Republican
member mak no mention of the reduc
tion of the Fretldent' salary to It for
mer figure , H being understood that tho
administration violontly oppose uch a
cbang a a reflection on the Fretldent.
Th truth is, nothing lei than the uncon
ditional repeal of the bill will satisfy tho
people. To propot half-way moasures
and tinker at the bill will increase instead
of appeasing their indignation.
Tbb opposition to President Orant't
nomine for th chief Justiceship grows
Litter. It is not confined tothe)preidenl's
oppoaents but i shared by his political
and personal trlends. Among tho admin
istration senators who are adverto to tbo
confirmation of Williams are Morton of
Indiana, and Edmunds of Vermont,
the latter chairman of tbo
judiciary committee. True or
falsa, scandalous stories enough to damn
even a radical aspirant for office are circn-
lating against tho chief justice elect. Wi-
consln Bepublicam are said to be oipocltfty
bitter against Williams : Gov. "Washburn
denounces the appointment as an outrage,
it being charged in that ttato that IVil
nam received ten thousand dollars for
his opinion In favor of the "Witcontin
Central railroad land claim. In addition
to thes material charges, derogatory
stories relating to Will it mi' domestic af
fair are alto resuscitated. In spite of
notin opposition, however, it is more
than llkoly that Williams will bo con
firmed by the senate.

and silver was stolon. Tho robbery was
porformed on last Wednesday night.
Vigilant sesreb wss mado for tho perpe
trator! by a larKQ number of citizens
both of Marion and this placo, and their
labor wat well rowardod, as will appoar.
On Wedoetday a man got off tho Marion-bound
train at Itfiinbridge, fgurmilci
west of Marlon, lho attention of tho
conductor and baggageman wat attracted
to lho man by his peculiar actions. Wben
tho robbery wat mado known, theso gen
tlemen at once suipicioned th passenger
who had stopped at Iiainbridgo. Tbcy
communicated their suspicions to Mr. W.
O. Dowel), attlttant station agent hero,
who remembored the man ss having ex-
pretted a valise to DuQuoin. Mr. 1). at
onco communicatod with tho oxprcss agent
at DuQuoin, asking that the valifie should
bo watched. On Thursday tho agont
at DuO.'ioln informed Mr. Dowell
that tho man had called for hit valito
and bad left a package a
cigar box valued at one hundred and
thirty dollars, to bo sent to St. Louis by
oxpress. Mr. Dowell telegraphed to hold
tho package, and in for mod Mr.Mitcholl of
the slate of aflViri . Mr. M. went to Du
Quoin and gavo if description of the gold
and til vor coin taken fromh'lssafe. Th box
was opond and tho money found therln as
described. Thi talttlk-d Mr. Dowell that
hu had spotted the right man, and ho con
tinued hit vigilant watching of passing
trains. Last nlMit,- (Friday), Mr. D.
boarded,tho north-bound freight train,
arriving liuto about nino o'clock.
In tbo cabnota ho found
the man ho had been looking for
and at once arrested hltn. In tho mean
time Mr. Mitchell htd returned fiom Du
Quoin, bringing with him the gold and
silver. Ho described, as far as possible,
the greenbacks taken from the safe,
among which was a ono dollar note split
in a peculiar maimer. Tho captured man
was icarched. Among his finances,
amounting to eighty. Dvo dollars, the
idontical note was found. This mado
another link in tbochain of circumstance.
An exprcs rccoipt for the package abovo
spoken of was also found on hit person,
which uddod still another link.
Mr. Dowell asked tho pritonor the
wheraboutt of hit valise. Thu man tald
that It wat in the hands of u private
party in DuQuoin; that he had nothing
with him when arrested. However, a
dispatch had been sent to DuQuoin to
tend down by the twelvo (midnight)
train any uoclalinbd baggago that might
bo found in tho caboose from whluh tbo
thiol bad been taken. A valiso and
shawl wero returned. Mr. Dowoll at
oaco recoKnlxed tho shawl a the one
worn by tho man who had expressed the
valito on WednctJay, alto, the valise at

a gentleman, and he was tho brightest and
bravest criature I ever saw.
The priest who gavo mo communion on
board this morning put a doublo scapular
about my neck and a madnl which he in

officer brought me a bright now silk badgx

If you write to President Grant'lie will
