CHICAGO OR THIS CITY. Which Will Secure the Republican National Convention ? PITTSBURG NOW THIRD. ways in which californians Should Strive to Secure THE PLUM. NEWS AND TRANSPORTATION. Figures Ought to Be Secured and Sent at Once to the Committee. WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 21.— The contest for the National Republican Con vention seems to have narrowed down to Fan Francisco. Chicago and Pittsburg. There are several other cities — St. Louis, Buffalo and New York among them — which are ambitious to secure the conven tion, but they are mating very little noise. The most that tney have done thus far has betn to write letters to individual members of the NatHT.nl Committee. Inasmuch as there has been no regular or even informal gathering of National committeemen yer, it is impossible to say just what San Francisco's chances are, or, for that matter, the chances of any city. The Pittsburgers, it is understood, will raise $100,000 to pay the National Commit tee's debt. This will, of course, have some effect, but the Smoky City will have to do some great hustling if it captures the con vention. The most prominent Republi cans who have visited Washington lately have expressed themselves against PitU burg, saying that it is a very unattractive city, and as between Buffalo, Chicago and San Francisco it would stand no chance. Senator (,'uay some time ago expressed himself as favorably inclined toward San Francisco, but it is believed that he will certainly favor the city of his own state, now that Pittsburg is a strong competitor. There is no doubt but that Chicago is San Francisco's chief rival. The Lake City is at this time the leading aspirant, with San Francisco a good second. It is certain that San Francisco is well thought of. The novelty of holding a con vention on the extreme side of the conti nent appeals strongly to the sentiment of nearly all who have discussed the conven tion place. Besides, there is a desire manifested on all sides to see the Golden j <rate City by those who Bare never crossed j the Rockies. Tha newspaper men, who are at this time discussing the matter in their telegraphic gossip, are very friendly toward San Francisco, and if their in fluence counts, it will be cast in her favor; they would enjoy a jaunt to the coast and so would many a delegate for that matter. If the delegates can be convinced that San Francisco is not too remotely situated and the influential newspapers can be made to believe that telegraphic facilities will be adequate San Francisco will stand an ex cellent chance. In addition to this money should be raised to pay railroad fares of impecunious delegates, some of whom will hail from the South. Californians should raise a fund immediately, at least as much as Pittsburg. Negotiations should also be made with railroad companies, to ascer tain what rates of fare can be secured. In addition to this statements should be se cured from telegraph companies as to the number of words that can be handled in specials to the East. If these facts are telegraphed East it will do much toward dispelling the doubts that now exist as to railroad fares and telegraph wires. Many leading Republicans are congre gating in New York City. Among them are Governor Morton. Senatoi Quay and Thomas B. Reed. Russell B. Harrison, ex-President Harrison's son, is there in consultation with General Michener, one of General Harrison's henchmen. In ad dition to these Thomas H. Carter, chair man of the National Committee, is there, and Committeemen Fessenden of Con necticut, Hobart of New Jersey and Crane of Massachusetts are expected there to at tend a conference to be held to-morrow. Ex-President Harrison is expected to arrive in New York to-night from Sara toga. Senator Teller of Colorado is also then as proxy for some Western com mitteemen. With this array of talent it is believed that at the conference to-mor row the time of holding the National Com mittee meeting in Washington to select a convention city will be decided. It is thought that the committee will not meet here until the early part of December. The notice must be issued six weeks before the convention meets. Chairman Carter stated to a Call correspondent a few days ago his belief that the National Committee would meet here in December, and that the convention would be held in JuDe. DID NOT GET A DIVORCE. Charles Campbell Makes Sev eral Slips in His Suit at Fargo. Started in Rather Prematurely to Woo and Win a Hand some Divorcee. FARGO, N. D.. Oct. 21. -Many divorces have been granted by Judge McConnell recently, but to-day there was a change in proceedings and the case of Charles J. Campbell vs. Essie Campbell was taken under advisement. The plaintiff is a blonde young man, who says he conducted a real -estate oflice in San Francisco, and October 2, 1894, was married in Oakland to Miss Essie Galluck. Campbell was an Episcopalian, but his wife was a Jewess. In his bill of com plaint he alleges tnat considerable trouble was caused over religious differences. He further charges that she would become in toxicated, called him bad names and became violent in her actions. The plain The San Francisco Call. tiff claims that he resided with his mother, Lucy J. Campbell, at 321 Haight street, and that his marital troubles reached such a point last spring that his wife deserted him and he left the following week for Fargo to get a divorce. In support of his suit he presented the depositions of his mother, his brother, Attorney George D. Campbell and Dr. George H. Jenks, who is also a relative. No proof was made to the court that per- Bonal service had been made or attempted on the defendant. The plaintiff had estab lished a residence in an adjoining county and had published a notice in an obscure weekly paper, and Judge McConnell be came convinced that Campbell was trying to get a divorce by fraudulent means and refused to grant a divorce till the defend ant could be heard from. Campbell started a real estate office here, but dropped it after a few weeks, and has devoted his time to bicycling, riding and tennis playine, and much of his time lias been spent with a rather handsome di vorcee, whom, it is said, he will marry if a decree is secured. The case has attracted considerable attention from the gossip about Campbell and the woman. Charles J. Campbell was in the employ of Will E. Fisher, the real estate agent on Post street, for about a year. Eight months ago he entered the office one rnornine and announced that he had been married. A month later he left Mr. Fisher's employ. "I knew nothing of his social relations," said Mr. Fisher last night. "He married a Jewess and they had some trouble. Two months after their marriage they separated. After Campbell left me I heard nothing of him, nor have I seen him since." The couple lived at 321 Haight street during the brief wedded experience and after the separation the wife returned to her mother's home at 414 Buchanan street, where she has lived ever since, awaiting the resu]t of her suit for divorce entered last June. "She'll get hf r divorce here in a few days, now," remarked her attorney, H. I. Kow alsky, last night. The complaint was tiled in June on the ground of cruelty. "So he has tiled a complaint in North Dakota. Well, she is ahead of him here. He can't get a divorce. Her complaint has been riled sixty days, and then she had to wait thirty days. She will get it by default. "He ran away like a cur as soon as she began action. He was a religious hypo crite, and wanted to feed her on a potato diet. "It is the old story of cruelty. The matter was ventilated in the papers when the suit was filed. I shall say nothing about the case of my client." The whereabouts of the whilom husband of two months' experience would not be divulged last night by his relatives here. The brother, G. A. Campbell of 14 Sansome street, is tha attorney for the man who sought the lenient divorce laws of North Dakota for release from his marital ties. CASWELL TO BE THE COMMANDER. Scottish Rite Masons of the Supreme Coun- cil Will Confer Honors Upcn a Californian, Washington, d. a, Oct. 21.— Every member of the Supreme Council of the World, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. 250 in number, was in attendance at the biennial session which Thomas H.

The right of deputies to communicate degrees and the collection of fees for the Supreme Council are the prin cipal subjects of discussion. AN EX-CONVICT'S EXPLOIT. Passed a Worthless Check on the Proprie tor of a Hotel and Landed Behind the Bars. CHICAGO, 111., Oct. 21. — Alfred Q. Highton, confidence man and bogus check operator, is again under arrest. He came to Chicago a week ago and registered at the Sherman House. He told the proprie tor he had $2200 in the St. Paul Bank and had authorized its withdrawal for deposit in the Commercial Ix>an and Trust Com pany of this city, with whicn concern the proprietor does business. Last Saturday Highton borrowed a blank check of the trust company and obtained $600 by filling it out and turning it in at the hotel coun ter. This morning the check was returned stamped "No funds," and Highton was ar restea an hour later. Highton has served a term in the penitentiary of Colorado and was released from the Stillwater (Minn.) prison in July last, after serving a two years' term. Xoi« of the Tug Petrel. OSCEOLA, Mich., Oct. 21.— Nothing has been heard of the tug Petrel since Wednes day and ncr owners have given her up for lost. Without doubt her crew of eight per sons went to the bottom with her. Three tugs searched all day Saturday, but found no trace of her. If tlie Petrel was still afloat she would have been heard from some where. There is no theory a a to what caused her to founder. SAN FRANCISCO, TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER '22, 1895. MILLIARD'S END NEAR The Sick Man Is Now Speechless From Weakness, his hours numbered. It Is Feared That He Cannot Survive the Trip to Los Angeles. steadily growing worse. Passed Into Unconsciousness While En Route From Stockton to Fresno. STOCKTON, Cal., Oct. 21.— The special car Paraiso withLieutenant-Governor Mil lard, his wife and attendants passed through here this morning. From Stock- LIEUTENANT . GOVERNOR SPENCES G. MILLARD, WHO IS KE ' ;; ; ■ pouted DYING. ■■--> f 4 . " 4 •. [Reproduced from a photograph.] ' •' " ton ihe car was taken to Lathrop, where it was attached to the regular 6outh-bound train for Los Angeles. The Lieutenant-Gcvernor is a very sick man. Dr. Gendrum of Los Angeles has charge of the invalid, whose wife is con stantly by his side. He has also trained nurses to keep watch over him. The present trouble of the Lieutenant- Governor is heart failure and bowel com plaint. When he passed through Stock ton to-day he was unable to see any one, and was so weak that he could not have spoken under any circumstances. Gov ernor and Mrs. Budd met the party at the railway station as the train passed throueh, but when the condition of the sick man was learned they did not attempt to see him. They expressed to Mrs. Millard their sympathy and hopes for her husband's re covery. According to remarks dropped by members of the party during the stop here there seems now little prospects of Lieutenant -Governor Millard's recovery. His physician hopes that when he reaches the warmer climate of the south he will improve; but iust now any excitement is likely to hasten the end. The frequent tits of heart failure are the most feared of any of the symptoms in his case, and the most sanguine believe the Lieutenant-Gov ernor will be fortunate if he survives the ride from here to Los Angeies. It was evi dent that everything possible had been done to render the car Paraiso comfortable for the patient, but there is an air of sor row on the faces of all inside. The special car with the Lieutenant- Governor on board will reach Los Angeles to-morrow morning, and if he survives the journey he will then have some chance of recovery. The sickness of Mr. Millard was brought on by an attack of la grippe, which soon turned into pneumonia and afterward developed into a complication of com plaints. Just now he is speechless from weakness and the trouble with his heart, and the least excitement would prove fatal. It is stated that Dr. Gendrum hardly expects the patient to survive the trip. Just before the car left here Mr. Millard dropped into a slumber. FRESXO, Cal., Oct. 21.— Lieutenant- Governor Spencer G. Millard and family passed through this city in a special car on this evening's train on their way to Los Angeles. Mr. Millard's condition was very critical, and during the trip from the north he grew worse. He was unconscious, and the members of the family who were around him were in a very anxious state of mind. While here they feared that the Lieutenant-Governor would not live till Los Angeles is reached. They will arrive there in the morning. LOS ANGELES, Oct. 21.— Lieutenant- Governor Millard is now said to be in such a condition that he will never again leave his bed. He is expected to arrive here at 7 :30 o'clock to-morrow from Shasta Springs, and will be conveyed to a private sani tarium. A special telegram received late to-nigbt from Caliente stated that Lieutenant-Gov ernor Millard's condition when he passed through that place at 11:27 o'clock was improved and that he was resting more easily. REFUSEIt XO MARRY BER.\ That la Why a Colorado Merchant Was Shot by a Woman. COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo..

Craw ford, who is a married man with a wife in Denver, had been intimate with the woman and had promised to secure a divorce from his wife ana marry Mrs. Shields. His refusal to carry out his promise or have any further connection with the woman resulted in the shooting. AT THE COST OF BONDHOLDERS. Dismissal of alt Important Railway Suit by the Supreme Court of the United States. WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 21.— The effort of the holders of the second-mort gage bonds known as the equipment and income bon<ls of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Minnesota Railway Company, to compel the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern Railwuy Company to pay the bonds, met an adverse fate in the Su preme Court of the United States to-day. The Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Minne sota Railway Company was bought by the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern Company under a decree made October 30, 1875, and it was not until 1883 that the second-mortgage bondholders instituted proceedings to recover on those securities. A judgment by the Circuit Court of the United States for the Southern District of lowa in May, 1889, affirmed the validity of certain of the bonds and declared others to be invalid, but the Supreme Court of the United States, in an opinion rendered by Justice Shiras, reversed that judgment and remanded the case with instructions to dismiss the bill at the cost of the bond holders. BOLD BUT VERY CARELESS. Attempt of a Masked Man to Rob a Bank in Ne braska. Citizens Soon Rallied, Shot and Captured the Daring Des perado. HARRISBURG, Nebr., Oct. 21.— A bold attempt was made this afternoon to rob the Banner County Bank of this place. A masked robber entered the bank at 4 o'clock and demanded the funds of Cash ier Carlisle. The robber had some diffi culty in drawing his revolver from his belt, and Mr. Carlisle ran out of the side door through his residence into the street, and thinking the robber had a horse went behind the house and finding the horse rode over the town giving the alarm. The citizens gathered with guns and as the robber came out opened fire, and after an exchange of two dozen shots the robber ran and was shot in the leg by a rifle-ball and surrendered. It was found that in his haste he had overlooked most of the bank's funds, only taking small change amounting to $167. The man says his name is Graham and that he is from Scotts Bluff County. The wound is not considered dangerous. No one but the robber was hurt and the bank recovered all the maney. SPIIiITS JJV THE ItAJtKXrss. Weird Stories About a Mine That Caved on a Family. NEW YORK, N. V., Oct. 21.-A Herald special from Hazelton, Pa., says: The mining village of Germantown, located on the mountain between Centralia and Lo custdale, is greatly worked up over alleged spiritual manifestations in the coal mine there.

KIRKLAND RECALLED Admiral Detached From Duty and Ordered Home, TO BE RETIRED AT ONCE. culmination of the charges Against the Commander of the European Station. selfridge to succeed him. Here Is the First Case Where Father and Son Hold Such an Exalted Rank. WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 21.— A sen sation in naval circles was caused to-day by the announcement that Rear-Admiral Kirkland, commanding the European na val station of the United States, had been detached from duty and ordered home. It is expected that Admiral Kirkland will apply at once to be placed on the re tired list. Commodore Thomas O. Sel fridge Jr. will succeed him as command ing officer of the European station. For some time past it has been ru mored that Secretary Herbert was not pleased with the conduct of Admiral Kirk land. Dissatisfaction was caused by the action of the admiral in sending congratu lation on his election to President Faure of France. Secretary Herbert construed this as entirely wrong, holding that the official position of the admiral, representing the dignity of the United States navy in Euro pean waters, precluded him from making any comment whatever with reference to politics and sent a letter of reprimand. Admiral Kirkland was not slow to re spond and he did so by appealing to the President to overrule Secretary Herbert's strictures on his conduct. He claimed in his own defense that he had known Presi dent Faure personally and had merely con gratulated him in a personal capacity and not as an officer of the United States navy. It is not known what action the President took in the matter, but the detachment of the admiral indicates that the Secretary was sustained by Mr. Cleveland. Admiral Kirkland next came into public notice through a newspaper interview in which he made somewhat insulting com ments on the character of American mis sionaries in Syria, whither he had been to give them protection during the Armenian troubles. This was brought to the notice of the Navy Department by a protest from religious organizations in Boston. Shortly following this second cause of dissatisfaction came a complaint from a chaplain in the navy that the admiral had insulted him before a number of officers during the festivities at the opening ol the Kiel canal, where Admiral KirKland was in command of the United States fleet. It was claimed by the chaplain that while standing with Admiral Kirkland and a group of other officers on the quarterdeck of the flaeship San Francisco the admiral turned to him and ordered him below in a brusque, if not insulting manner, because he was not attired in full-dress uniform. The chaplain, in his letter to the Navy Department, made plain that chaplains have only one regulation uniform, which serves for all occasions, and he considered himself very badly used. It is said that Secretary Herbert sided with the chaplain in his complaint, but it is not known whether he took official action. In addition to these reports concerning Admiral Kirkland others reached the Navy Department of a more personal nature, and after making a pretty thor ough inquiry into the matter and consult ing President Cleveland, Secretary Her bert to-day issued the order of detach ment. Admiral Kirkland will probably receive the news by cable at Algiers, for which place the San Francisco sailed to day from Gibraltar, according to a dis patch received at the Navy Department. While the recall is, of course, uncompli mentary to Admiral Kirkland there is no disposition at the department to belittle his record as a sailor. He is looked on as a man of active and quick perception, and always ready to do his duty. He was ap pointed to the navy from North Carolina in 1850 and attained his present rank March 1 last. Admiral Kirkland has not long to serve on the active list, but it is believed he will apply for retirement without delay. It is said that he had expressed the inten tion of going on the retired list if relieved of his present duty. Through his assignment to the Euro pean station Commodore Selfridge be comes an active rear-admiral, and this fact brings about the unprecedented case, at least in the United States navy, where a father and a son attained to the highest grade of the naval service during the life time of both. Admiral Selfridge's father, a hale and hearty old gentleman more than four-score and ten is Rear- Admiral Thomas 0. Selfridge Sr. He has been on the retired list for many years. If Ad miral Kirkland retires at once Admiral Kelfridge will change his acting rank for that of actual rank. Hi ANY MEN BADLY INJURED. Explosion of a Steam Pipe Connecting Boil- ers in a Room Where Two Hundred Were Working. CLEVELAND, Ohio, Oct. 21.— A special from Anderson, Ind., says: Eight men were seriously and two fatally injured by the explosion of a steam pipe in the Amer ican vviremills this noon. The pipe which broke was a twelve-inch one, connecting twenty-two boilers. Two hundred men were caught in a room and all were more or less injured. The wildest excitement prevailed. All the surgeons in town were summoned. The seriously injured are: Abe Delicamp, Tom Finan, James Rogers, John Jones, Mine McNear, Andrew Sheets, Henry Wykoff, Henry Myers. The mill was badly damaged. JFlamea in a Parlor-Car. CLEVELAND, Ohio, Oct. 21.— A special from Anderson, Ind., says: When the Pan handle vestibuled-train arnved here at noon to-day one of the parlor-cars was in flames. The tire department was sum moned and succeeded in saving about half the car. Several of the passengers were badly burned while fighting the fire before the city was reached. The fire caught from a spark in the roof. CHOSEN PHYSICIAN FOR A COUNTY. Honors Conferred Upon Dr. Mabel Spencer, a Bright Woman Practitioner of Kansas. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 21.— Dr. Mabel Spencer, a Kansas City (Kans.) woman, has been appointed County Physician of Riley County, Kans., to succeed Dr. Wil lard, who recently resigned. Miss Spen cer — or rather Dr. Spencer — is a daughter of J. J. Spencer, who has been connected with the Union Terminal and other rail way enterprises in the two Kansas Cities. She began the study of medicine in the Kansas City Homeopathic Medical Col lege about five years ago and graduated with high honors last year. A few months ago she went to Manhattan to practice medicine and she has become so success- ful there that she has been chosen County Physician by the Board of County Com missioners. She is the first woman in Kansas to receive such an appointment. WAS TRUE TO THE END Nicholas Millar Imported His Fair Bride From Dal matia. His Brother Acted as a Proxy and Brought the Girl, to America. NEW YORK, N. V., Oct. 21.— Nicholas Millar came to America several years ago from Dalmatia. His sweetheart, Paola Rudendak, was left behind. The young man saved enough to send on for Paola. Her brother answered his letter and said that their sister could not come to Amer ica unless Nicholas returned to Austria. Paola's brothers had never seen him, so Nicholas wrote to his betrothed and asked her to assist in a deception he proposed. He said that he was unable to return for her, and his plan was to get a friend of his, who was about to visit his own home in Austria, to go to Paola's brothers, rep resent himself as the lover, marry her and bring her to America. This plan was agreed to. The friend started for Austria and Nicholas waited. Finally a letter came telling him that his friend had arrived and that he had been married to Paola by a priest and a magis trate, that they were on their way to Havre and would sail on the Campagna at once. The ship reached the city about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and Nicholas was waiting on the pier. He had already seen Paola, his wife by proxy, and his faithful friend standing in the forward part of the steamship, and had waved his handker chief to them in welcome. Paola was all smiJes, and threw him a kiss. The gang plack was put up, and Nicholas was among the first aboard. Then the husband and wife who had been faithful so long threw their arms around one another and wept for joy. As Paola and her friend were steerage pas sengers they could not be taken off yester day, and Paola had to part from Nicholas again. When the poor fellow learned this he broke completely down, and returned alone to his home where his friends were waiting for the bride. DUKE OF MARLBOROUGH'S DAY. With Miss yanderbilt. His Future Bride, He Went to Church and Then Made a Call. NEW YORK, N. V., Oct. 21.— Miss Con suelo Yanderbilt and her betrothed, the Duke of Marlborough, were occupants of the rector's pew in St. Thomas Church at the morning service yesterday. Both re mained to tafce communion after the regu lar service. Then the young people were driven to Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt's new house at Seventy-second street and Madi son avenue. After luncheon Miss Vander bilt and the Duke went for a drive in the park. The Duke left Mrs. Vanderbilt's house late in the evening and drove to the Plaza Hotel. To a reporter the Duke said: "Nothing The Duke of Marlborough. more definite will be done with regard to my wedding until later in the week. Then 1 shall be glad to tell you." The report that tne banns of the Vander bilt-Marlborough wedding were to be pub lished in St. Thomas Church was not well founded. Sickness Caused Suicide. ST. PAUL, Minn., Oct. 21.— A. E. Adams, a newspaper puolisher of Spokane, Wash., was found dead on the sidewalk in front of the Sherman Hotel this morning. He had committed suicide by shooting himself through the head.

One Hundred Thousand Dol lars Secured by the Murderers. LA PAZ, Bolivia, Oct. 21.— James Carr, Sam Young and Fred Wilson, Americans, and Tom Graham, Charles Morgan, Henry Waters and Phil Barnes, Englishmen, all miners, who had been working several years in this country, and who lately made important gold discoveries in a sec tion of the frontier of Brazil, whence they were returning, richly laden with cold and precious stones, were fojind dead near Chuquisaca over a week ago and by their side were found the dead bodies of three natives. Not far off a young boy, who had been adopted by Carr and who served the party as cook, was found. He was badly wounded and told the following story: The party had been traveling fourteen days when it camped on Pilcotnayo River for four days, as all were thoroujrhly tired out. The Indian guides had been charged to act as guards during the nights'. Last Monday night the boy was awakened from a sound sleep by hearing shooting. On looking around he saw that the guides under the leadership of Juan Ortiz were standing over the sleeping Ameri cans and Englishmen and tiring on them from rifles. Seeing this, the boy attempted to flee, but was wounded twice by shots from Ortiz, and he lay more dead than alive until found by passers-by, who cared for him and elicited from him his account of the massacre. The boy says that the Indians loaded horses with the plunder, which is calculated to exceed over $100,000, and departed in the direction of Paraguay River. The authorities are preparing to go after the robbers, but so far have done nothing. The natives killed were not guides, but servants who had been with the party for some time, and faithful Indian guides. The assailants were all Brazilians. WILLING TO SELL HIS VOTE. Publication of Ohio Campaign Literature Reflecting Upon the Rev. C. W. Heoffer. COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 21.— The Demo cratic State Committee to-night furnished for publication three letters' bearing the signature of Rev. C. W. Heoffer, Republi lican candidate for the Legislature from Darke County, being a part of his alleged negotiations with the committee for $1500, in consideration of his vote for Calvin S. Brico for United States Senator. The first of these bears the date of Green ville, Ohio, October 11, and is addressed to M. A. Smalley, chairman of the Demo. crtic State Central Committee. In it ha states that Mr. Meilley of Lima, presunv. ably Senator Brice's brother-in-law, L. H. Meilley, had not looked upon his proposi tion with favor and asking for a personal interview regarding the matter. The letter closes with the assurance thafi. he will vote for Brice, as agreed, if paid the $1500. The second letter is addressed to Senator Brice himself. It is a simple businesslike agreement to vote for him in consideration of $1500, to be paid to him for his campaign expenses. The third let ter is addressed to C. M. Anderson, chair man of the Democratic State executive committee, and bears the date of Octo» her 17. In it he begs Mr. Anderson, who is tk fellow-townsman of Mr. Heoffer of Green ville, to secure from the representatives of Senator Brice certain letters which they were about to publish, which publication, he said, would ruin him. If the lettenr were returned to him he would withdraw from the ticket. In a statement regarding the matte* Chairman Anderson says he called on Heoffer on receipt of this letter at a hotel here with the letters in his possession, and asked Mr. Hoeffer if he had written tneni, and he saior he had. It was agreed then that the letters should not be published if Heoffer would at once withdraw from the>. ticket. His subsequent refusal to with- ! draw caused the publication. Don Dickinson Jieaten.
