Justice Fuller’s order remanding
the suit to the Circuit Court will meet
general approval for its judicial, as
well as its moral, fairness.
It is in the first place not a matter In
which the United States has constiu
tional jurisdiction, in fact the Federal
government had, under the act of Con
gress, no legal ground whatever to

The most the Federal government
coaid demand was to be repaid its
money, which the Fair association long
agodecided to do—and there the Sunday

Plaus for KrceUng ftuch a Building in
Washington, D. C., June 17.—There
has been a great deal of conjecture re
garding the permanent location of the
papal delegation in Washington. It is
now authoritatively announced that the
Archbishops of the churcji in the
i United States, have taken the matter in
hand, a suitable dwelling for the papal
delegation will be erected. At the
meetiug of Archbishops in Chicago, the
details will be decided. Said Dr. O’Gor
man, professor at the Catholic Univer
“It is necessary to build a house for
Archbishop Satolli, as any private resi
dence that could be bought Is wholly
intuited to the needs of those who will
occupy a papal legate’s house. Houses
that have been intended for family uses
have not the arrangements for a lega
tion, which requires offices, etc. Con
i nected with a papal legate are various
secretaries and subordinates, which fact
must oe taken into consideration when
deciding the buildiug question.’’
Bishop Ryau, of Buffalo, is treasurer
of the fund to build the papal legation
residence, aud the circular he has sent
out is bringing satisfactory results.

g Sommervllle Interviewed About
Meeting of the Board at Regent*.
Hon. J. B. Sommervillo has returned
from Morgantown, where he attend
ed the meeting of the Board of Regents
of the West Virginia University. The
Board adjourned until July 20th. Sena
tor Sommerville was seen yesterday by
a Rsoistkr reporter, and talked inter
estingly about matters considered by
the Board.
“There Is really no foundation, ’ he
said, “for the intimation in your paper
that the Board adjourned until July
20th in order to dispose ofaMessrs. John
G. Schilling, of Roane county, and Major
E. A. Bennett, of Cabell county. The
terms of these two members expire
July 1st, but the selection of the date
for the adjourned meeting has no sig
nificance. It was the only time which
could be agreed upon, on account of
business engagements of members of
the Hoard. I suggested June 25th, but
several members objected to that date.
Then the 28th and 30th were suggested,
but dropped for the same reason. The
Board would have finished the work be
fore it without adjourning, but for
pressing business matters which caWed
most of the members to their homes.”
“What is the situation at the Uni
versity?” asked the reporter.
“The fact caouot be denied that the
situation Is very unsatisfactory. Har
rnouy In the faculty is absolutely essen
tial to the propes conduct of the lnsti
1 tution. Whether tho removal of ODe or
i more of the Instructors will bring about
the desired result, I am not prepared to
say. I have no fixed opinion in the
matter, relative to the charges brought
against certain professors, and 1 am
confident that that is the situation with
the entire Board. A number of papers
throughout the State have been doing
some guessing as to the action
of the Board, but it is
all mere conjecture, as tho Beard has
not yet heard the evidence against the
members of tho faculty, and until there
is something tangible will take do
action in the matter. W hen the Board
meets in July it will be to hearevidence.
“You may say," concluded Mr. Som
mervillo, “that tho members of the
Board of Regents will do what they
thiDk best to bring about harmony in
the faculty.” The Senator took the
same position with regard to President
Turner as toward the other members of
the faculty, asserting that he would not
presume to judge Mr. Turner’s conduct
until all the evidence bearing on the
matter is heard.
New York’s Military Force* Called to
(Juell Btrlkmg Tuna wanda Lumber
Tonawanda, N. Y., Juno 17.—This vil
lage is now under martial law. At 2
o’clock this afternoon President George W.
Stanley issued a proclamation calling upon

Agents of the Lumbermen’* Exchange
have been dispatched to New York, Phila

lAhnrers to take the strikers’ places, and
it is expected that they will return Sunday
with plentv of nou-union labor, which the
military w'lll protect. Business is totally
suspended here at present. Piftv men
who were brought down from Buffalo
were laid off at noon, and the lumbermen
are discussing plans to carry on their work
next week.
This afternoon, when a couple of union
men rowed over to the island and scram
bled on the dock, a guard prodded them
with bis bayonet and drove them back
into their boat. Groups of the old union
men have been stutioned near the bridge
leading to the island, and at 1 o’clock this
afternoon adoaen attempted to oross.
The bridge is guarded by a detachment
of soldiers. They shoved their bayonets
up in front of the men's faces and formed a
lino of bristling steel as impenetrable as a
stone wall.
“Get out of here or you will get hurt,”
said the corporal.
The intruders dropped back sullenly,
muttered a few curses aud walked baca to
their fellow workmen.
At noon to-day the strikers held a mass
meeting in the Lumber Exchauge where
some fiery speeches were made. It was
impossible to obtain any Information as to
what action bad boon taken at the session.
No boats were unloadeded to-day. A big
fleet of lumber carriers is bound for here
aud there will be a big blockade if the lum
bermen do not succeed in hiring a large
force within a few days.

tjiie Was InceanMl at tbe Action of tbo
Typographical Union.
Chicago, June 17.—The International
Typographical Union decided to publish
the report of the investigation of tbe
Chllds-Drexel Home. It was found that
funds had been grossly misappropriated,
that the Home had not been built accord
ing to the specifications, and that the pres
ent building was in such a oou
ditlon that it is liable to oollapee. The
Board of Trustees are guilty of a vio
lation of trust, J. D. Vaugh, of Colorado
Springs and August Doanth, of VV asbing
too, being particularly responsible. Tbe
oflending trustees were removed. Tbe sum
of |6,500 was then appropriated to put
tbo home in a proper condition.
A separata scale of Wi|6i for female
compositors carno up for extended con
sideration. A separate scale is demanded by
tbe Boston union, where there are over one
thousand non-union female compositors.
Tne wish of tbo Boston union Is to organ
ire these women upon a lower scale of
wages. Tbe opposition led by delegate
Miss Belle Pierson, of Albany, demanded
tbe same scale for women as for men. The
matter was referred to the executive coun
cil by au aye and nay vote of 87 to *6. Miss
Pierson then withdrew from the floor of
the convention, claiming the woman dele
gates had no place in the convention.
The most important business transacted
at tbe dosing session of the meeting of the
International Typographical Union, was
the adoption of a resolution declaring that
no one should be admitted to tbe Chllds
Drexel Home unless he bad been a member
of tbe union for five years.

The Philadelphia Record reports that
among the millions of small coins which
have mysteriously disappeared are 119,
000.000 old copper pennies; 4,500,000
bronze two-cent pieces; 3,000,000 three
cent nickel pieces and 809.000 of the old
copper half-cents, of which not one baa
ever been returned to the government.
Samples of these coins turn up once in a
while, bnt they are extremely rare.
Making all possible allowance for the
quantities of a nail coin that children
swallow, It is hard to imagine what hu
become of all of this money.
