Washington. Nov. 9. It Is authori tatively stated that Illinois Is to have a place In McKlnley's cabinet. The lllinolsan chosen to receive that honor Is not positively known, but ho will come from Chicago. It depends much on F.dltor Kohlsaat. If he will take It. he will be chosen. If he declines. Robert Lincoln will, it Is asserted, be offered his old place In the war depart ment. If Lincoln, too, on account of his profitable law practice, should de cline the honor, several other promi nent Chlcagnans would be considered, und one of them selected. Charles Dawes of F.vanstnn. who handled the funds of the Republican national com mittee during the campaign. Is be lieved to have a better chance than any other lllinoisan for a place In the cab inet. He was put forward during the campaign by Mr. llanna and Mr. Kohl buat. and given responsibilities great er than were assigned to any other llliimisan. ItliPtu for the 1 reumiry. Republic an local leaders In New York cay that it seems to be practi cally settled that Cornelius N. Bliss will be President McKlnley's secretary i.f the tieasury. It is understood that the president-elect has expressed a desiie that Mr. Bliss accept the treas ur poitfolm and is anxious that his selection shall have the approval of the Kepul.licau parly in New York city and state. The selection of Mr. Bliss for this place, it Is said, will not be disappointing or even unsatisfactory to tiie local Republican organization, in his capacity as treasurer of the na tional committee. Mr. Bliss had to meet the local leaders frequently and friendly relations were established. So certain is one Republican ot national piomin.i that Mr. Pliss Is to be the next sc. letary of the treusury that he said ai i lie Fifth Avenue hotel that ha had p.isilh " information that the ap pointment had been tendered and ac cepted M hlMI t II Uis IN HKNTICKY. rn SI III here. Mrs. William McCarthy of Scranton, who was visiting here, took her two grandchildren, Margaret, aged 2 years, and May. aged 4 years, out for a walk. The. old lady wanted to cross the river and stroll through the woods with the children, and to do this had to cross the Erie and Wyom ing Valley bridge. No train was In sight, and she thcrght she had plenty of time. They were about half way across when an usattached freight en clne came dashing around the curve and on to the bridge. Mrs. McCarthy v as badly frightened, and In endeavoring to reach a pier tripped and fell off the bridge with both children In her arms. Engineer Decker and Fireman Young saw the accident, but were unable to render any assistance.- Ti e river, swollen by recent rains, ran very swiftly. For about a minute Mrs. McCarthy was able to keep up, and the men on the engine saw her holding the children put of the water. Then she sank. The trainmen hastily carried the news to Old Forge, and a number of men went out to find the bodies. The search was unsuccessful.

' It was brought by La Compagnlft Gen eral Transatlantic for damages re rultlng by the collision between the iteamshlp La Pomgogne or tne i rencn line and the Ailsa, owned by the Atlas Steamship company. The collision oc curred In this harbor on the 29th of February last. wh. n during a dense fog all the outgoing or Incoming big liners were either running aground or bumping Into each other. The Ailsa was n.t anchor at the time she collided wilh La Poiirgogne. but nevertheless the Atlas Steamship com pany Is held to be responsible for the casulty for having come to anchor In a navigable channel. The placing of the responsibility for the collision on the Ailsa's owners nlso makes them lia ble for the value of the caigo which the Atlas steamship had on Iwiard when she sank on Foil Lafayette.

The widow of William H. Vandetbllt died Friday ot heart disease at the house of her daughter, Mrs. Elliott K. Bhepard. In Scarboevj. W'eat Chester county. lira. Vanderbllt bad been visiting at the Shepard residence since the wed ding of her grand-daughter, the daugh ter of Mrs. Shepard. In the morning Mrs. Vanderbllt was up and about the house. Shortly after 1 o'clock In the afternoon she was attacked with heart failure and died In a few minutes. Dr. It. B. Coutant of this place waa summoned and was present when Mrs. Vanderbllt died. Mrs. Shepara ana Mrs. Bromley, a sister of Mrs. Van derbllt, were also present. The death of Mrs. Vanderbllt waa unexpected, as she was apparently In good health in the morning, a.nd the attack cam without warning. Mrs. Vanderbllt was Miss Louise Klssam. daughter of a Reformed church minis ter of Albany. She was married to William II. Vanderbllt in 1841. The children of the marriage were Corne lius. William Klssam. Frederic w.. Oeorgo W.. Margaret Louisa, who be came the wife of the late Elliott F. Sheoard: Emily Thorn, wife of Will- lam D. Sloane; Florence Adele. wife ot II. McK. Twombley. and Eliza O., wife of W. Seward Webb. At the Shepard residence the funeral details could not be learned, as they were aa yet Incompleted. Mrs. William II. Vanderbllt was 75 years old. She was a member of St. Bartholomew church, of w hich Dr. Greer Is the pas tor, and donated the St. Bartholomew mission to the church. She was very charitable, but her charities were de void of ostentation. LEE SEES THE PRESIDENT. t uile.l SlHt CoffMtl Mwkes a hr t'nll at the Wliils Hon. Washington, Nov. 9 All I he mem bers of the cabinet, except Secretary Francis, who has not yt returned to Washington, were present, at Friday's cabinet meeting, and it Is believed that the subjects to be treated In the presi dent's message were touched upon. United States Consul General Lee called at the state department shortly after 11 o'clock, and word of his ar rival being carried to Secretary Olney vt the White House, the latter left the cabinet meeting and came at once to the department. He received Gen eral Lee In his office and a long Inter view followed. At the conclusion of his conference ih Sanetaiv Onlev Oeneral Lee went to luncheon with Assist ana Secre tary Rockhlll. who Is directly respon sible for the conduct tc.f the consular business andwas much interested In what the consul had to say of the con ditions In Cuba, lu the urtemoon the consul general went over to the White House and paid his r;Kieet to the president. Ilii call there was not long, so it is supposed he will see the presi dent again before he returns to his post to discuss Cuban affairs more In detail. From what can be gleaned of the talk General Lee has had with his superior officer It appears he left mat ters in Cuba very quiet by comparison with what has gone lefore. Confined closely as he was lo Havana, he was obliged to rely upon the same official reports as were telegraphed to the United States for news of what waa going on in the field, so that his views of the military situation were rather narrow. Of course he was better pre pared to discuss the economic aspect of the Cuban question, and after all this Is likely to flgura as largely as any other factor in the consideration of our future relations.

That merchants generally share the confidence In an early revival Is Indi cated by hardening staple prices, and the Increases In quotations In addition to those given In preceding weeks. Sales of cotton goods have been freer and some mills are better employed. Woolen mills also report more orders, and a tendency to prefer higher cost goods. Numerous Industrial estab lishments which have started up with in two days report being offered large orders If they would sell for 1897 de livery at present prices. Many Rhode Island manufacturers report prepara tions for a larger output than antici pated, and that orders received con tingent on election results, notably In the lumber and Jewelry lines, are now being Tilled.

On Tuesday evening when the re turns made the result at the polls suf ficiently plain large buying orders were cabled to London. Some estlmatea put the orders at aa high as 100.000 shares of stock, snd orders for about M).000 were executed. This caused a general advance in the American department. When our own market opened on Wednesday morning, It was In a decid edly enthusiastic mood, and the first quotations were from 2 to 7 points above the close on Monday. The dis position of the professional element to take profits on purchases made prior to the election was marked, and prices promptly receded from the opening. This selling was. however, met by purchases by Interests which had kept out of the market over election, and by a fair volume of commission house purchases On Thursday, however, the market seemed to be under a re actionary Influence. The fact that some states were In alleged doubt, pro 4 1 .out Inn an d hesitation, while rumors of possible Intervention by our government In Cuba resulted In the further liquidation of long accounts and Induced more or less bear selling, the net result being a considerable re action on the market.
