For a long while John McUarv has been watching Oscar Barringer, who seemed to pay McIUiry's wife more attention than the latter thought was right. On several occasions Mciiary has forbidden his wife to accompany Barringer to any places of amusement, saying that he was auspicious of an intimacy between the two. Several days ago McKary came home and found Barringer seated in the parlor iu a deep conversation with the wife. Mciiary concluded that now was the most opKrtnne time for him to for ever cut the friendship that had devel oped into love. Mciiary ordered Barringer out of his house, and told him if lie ever caught him in conversation with his wife again that one or the other would have to forfeit Ins life. For a wnile this warning was heeded by Bnrri"g r, and the community thought that the matter had all been smoothed over. Barringer could not suppress the de-ire to see Mrs. McKary, and he wrote her a very loving note, asking permis-iou to see her at the earliest poss.ble moment. The rote of Ban i'ljjor never reached Mrs. Mcllirv, but foil into the husband's hand'. Instead of a reply from the woman he recci.id a challenge for a duel, which was to t ike ) lace at a situated spot near l.e.si igt 'i.

Ion of One of the Delegate to the Sixteenth Annual Convention of the Ciithollfl Vounif Men' Xatimul Union lttoentlv Hold In Washington. City. New York, Oct. 10. George E. Wei becan, Jr., one of the colored delegates from New York to the convention of the Human Catholic Voting Men's Na tional union in Washington last week, has returned home. He is especially proud of the fact the this was the first convention w hicli c. lored men attend ed. There were eight members of Afri can blood among tiie MiXI delegates. It was the sixteenth annual convention. Concerning the results of the conven tion, Mr. Weibecan said: "in my opiui in the convention estab lished a precedent which .ill tho denom inations will, iu time, be zealous to fol low. The Human Catholic church, through Cardinal Gibbon , and the officers of tho union who were there, held out to us th same hand of fellow- hip which t hey extended to the white delegates. VV e were all members of the Bitine flock. And 1 can not help think ing that if sui h a policy was extended among the colored people of the s.mth, race prejudices would soon become a thing of the past.

In regard to newspaper disp.itchw from London, asserting that Spain cannot negotiate n reciprocity treaty with the United fcitntes for the Cuban trade wi. bout violating ihe "favored nation clause" in her existing tieaties with other nations, it is said at the lie) urtmelit of state, that this point was discussed and finally decided i t (MS I. when .Minister Foster negotiated a reciprocity treaty ou the same basis that is now proposed, and is now revived, not by Spain it i , stated, but by tlio comine.iial interest i of Great. Britain for an ovious purpose. The state ilepartino.it otiieials say that the Untied .Stales also has the ''favored nation clause'1 in mo: t of her commer cial treaties, but this will not ctnl nrratsa the goverun ent in tho negotiation of reciprocity tieaties or lurangi'tnelits with other nations, because th.- depart ment of stale has uniformly held, from the time of Air. Jefferson, in score: ary of state, to Mr. Blaine, that the fafbted nation cl.uise oul' app.ios w here priv-iif-gi s are granted lively anil without a coiifideration: but who. ever a special consideration is made the condition of a favor granted or received, tlio favored nation clause docs not apply. This interpretation lias recently been ' sustained by the mpreiue court of the United Slates i-i its opinion in Ihe ia e of Bai'tram vs. Robertson.
