Washington, Dec. 8. — Fora number of
days rumors have been current which place
the prohibition candidate for the presidency
in an unenviable light. The rumors have
not been confined to Republicans, but are
passed among the Democrats. A prominent
Republican member of the house of repre
sentatives, when Interviewed on thi6 sub
ject, said:
"]}. fore the election, when I was
in Utica, N. V. , I wrote six
letter to the national Republican
committee, urging that St. John should be
gotten off the track. I told the committee
that it was necessary that this should be
done, because he would get '25,000 or 30,000
votew in New York state. I thought that
some means would be found to get St. John
to withdraw. A few days after writing the
letter I called at the national committee
headquarters in New York city. I heard
thai tit. John had made a proposition to Let
oil the ticket for a certain hub of money.
My informant asked me to guess
how lurch. I named a cum, but
it was too hi^h. Afterwards I was told the
figure was $100,000. Leaving the national
committee's rooms, I went to the headquar
ters of the Republican stale committee.
There I told what 1 beard, and was informed
that what I said was correct. A gcutleman
remarked that St. John went to a member of
the national committee and, talking as if he
were buytng or selling goods, very coolly
made hi.-, proposition. lie was told that his
figures were too high. 'Oh, yes,' he replied,
but you must remember that the presidency
i- ■ great otllce.' Nothing was done with
the alleged proposition at that time. I know
that there was no monr-y in the treasury of
the committee at that time."
Another Republican member of the house,
a gentleman from a western slate, when ap
proached on the subject, said- "A few days
lie fore St. John's nomination for the prisl
dency be declared to his friends in Kansas
that under no circumstances would he accept
the nomination of the Prohibitionists. As is
known lie did accept! I have been told by a
member of the national Republican com
mittee that St. John made a proposition
to withdraw from the race. Why,
just to-day a Democrat member of
■ congress came to me and said that if it had
not been for him fit. John would have been
off the track about three day? before election.
Be wild be went to New York, and found
out the condition of affairs. lie immedi
ately went to the Democratic national com
' mittee headquarters, and told those there
that they must not unuerany circumstances
let St. John withdraw. I told him that I had
heard that the Prohibition candidate had
made a proposition to our committee. My
Democratic friend replied: 'You were fools
for not taking him up.'"'
Although the capstone of the Washington
monument was set Saturday, the monument
is not by any mesas completed and the work
yet to be done will occupy at least two years.
The removal of the platforms and outside
rigging will commence to-morrow, and after
all the timbers and iron work have been
taken. in the boles through which they passed
will be closed by exactly fitting stones.
When that is completed the work of fitting
up the interior will commence. To prevent
moisture from collecting in the seams of the
interior stones the walls will be covered with
Portland cement. The memorial stones, .
which are at present lying in a shed at the
foot of the monument, will be cut down to
a thickness of a few inches and then in
serted in the structure. The present wooden
stairway will be removed entirely and substi
tuted by one of iron, with turned balustrades,
and the interior Is to be lighted with elec
tricity. The elevator, which is at present
nothing more than a plain movable platform,
will be fitted up nicely with cushioned scats
and padded sides. The most important
matter, however, and one that is not
even decided upon, is the design for the base
of the monument. Two of the numerous
designs offered appear to be favorites. One
in to make a gradual terrace from the - BBSS
ent level of the monument floor to the level
of the surrounding park. The other is to
have a marble wall built around the present
terrace with a balustrade and grand ap
proaches on each side, and fine statuary on
the steps and at the corner of the terrace.
Nothing depnite has yet been determined
upon. Of course, all the present unsightly
workshops will be removed, and it is pro
posed to shift the engine which runs the ele
vator and which is now close to the monu
ment to a distance aud convey the motive
power by tunnel to the monument.
It is reported here to-day that a secret
meeting was held by the tariff reform leaders
last night, among the number being Carlisle
and Merriarn, at which it was agreed that
they would make all possible effort to pre
vent action at this session upon the Mexican
reciprocity treaty and all other measures
affecting the tariff in any way. This, of
course, would include the new treaty with
To-morrow Senator Harrison will call up
bis bill to admit Dakota to the Union. He said
to-night: "I have made no Inquiry about
the chance the bill has of getting through
the house. Every possible condition for
•statehood has been complied with by Dakota,
and any opposition there is to the territory's
admission must be due entirely to parti
sanship. The Democrats can hardly
expect to keep the territory
out till the next president is elected,
bo Ido not see why they should not let her
come in now. I think I can show that
southern Dakota alone has population enough
jr. two congressmen. The territorial system
js entirely inadequate for the needs .of 60
large a territory. We have just had to add
two judges, and the court business is far in
arrears. We have been compelled to allow the
territory twice as large a legislature as any
other legislature has, and still the
territory has outgrown its form of govern
ment. Washington territory has just elected
a Democratic delegate to congress. If the
Democrats want to revive the old ante-bellum ;
custom of admitting territories in pairs, one
of each party, and propose to couple the ad- ;
mission of Washington with that of Dakota,
I shall cheerfully accept the amenhment."
Washington, Dec.. 8. — The Capital pub
lishes the following gossip: "I heard it re
marked the other day that the real ; reason
why Mr. Blame failed to rebuke on the spot
the remarkable utterance of Dr. Burcbard
about ' Rum, Romanism and rebellion' was i
that he did not hear the remark or that he
wa« so busy thinking of his own reply to the
ministers that the reference to the Roman
Catholic church made no impression upon
til.' mind, buttbls statement is not true. In
conversation with Mr. Blame shortly
after that unfortunate affair I
asked him how it happened
that he failed to rebuke Dr. Burcbard on the
spot, and whether it was possible that be did
not hear what Burchard eaid. Mr. Blame's
reply was :
'I heard him perfectly, and the words went
through me like a knife, but I thought that
perhaps only a few beard it and the best way
might be to take no notice of it, but let it
"Now be would give half i million dollars
!f he had said on that occasion about Dr.
Burchard's remarks what he said about them
a day or two afterward at New Haven. It
was a curious fact that that ministers'
meeting at New York wns engineered
by an alleged mtaUter named McMurdr.
This man year* airo was a hanger-on herein
Washington, aud I believe held ■ clerkship
under the government.. He is one of the
Jacks of all trades who now and then take
a turn in tin; pulpit, and perhaps a little of
the anger that is bafaf vented ou poor Dr.
Burchard's Lead might be bestowed on Mc-
Murdy's alt,*, for it is quite true that if thi re
had been bo Mc.Murdy thig year Mr. liiaine
might have been' president."
A bill was int-oduced in the senate to-day
granting $500,000 to aid the colored people's
exposition at Chicago, and appointing J. W.

A contributor to the Ikrald pertinently
writes: "While so many are volunteering
their services as to whom President Cleve
land should select for his cabinet officers,
will you penult in.-, a Democrat whose first
vote was cast for (Jen. Jackson at his second
election, to give my humble opinion _s
to who ought not to be appointed. It
may be told Id a few words. No aspirant
for the presidency should hold a cabinet
portfolio. A persou who has been familiar
with the internal workings of the govern
ment departments, as I have ban from tin
lime of Van Hun ii. or even for the last de
cade, can have tailed to see the evil of such

The senate committee on way* and means
has been giving some attention to the scicn
tide branches of the goverumei.t, with a
view to ascertaining If expense may not be
eat down without lessening the efficiency.
These an: the bydrographle, the geological,
the coast and geodetic surveys and the biirual
service. Senator Allison explains the scope
of the inquiry in this way: '-It
Is said that these technical branches,
each haviiiL' its own head, duplicate a gooi
deal of their work. The proposition is not
to consolidate, but to make them co-ordinate
by bringing them into closer tad more har
monious relationship." The committee
expect to stop this useless ex
penditure, as claimed, for duplicated work.
Prof. Powell, who is at the head of one of the
branches, has been before the committee.
He is preparing an elaborate substitute in
rapport of his position that it is better to
leave Iheoa divisions of scientific
work as they are. The charge of duplica
lion, he lays, is not well founded, for when
one bureau has need Of results already ob
tained by another, such, for example, as the
Lrlangulation, it borrows in a neighborly way
in6tead of going over the same ground at the
government's expense. Members of the
committee do not talk as though they thought
the inquiry would result in niue!r%-
from the present independent status of these
branches. Each of the bureaus has Eucb a
large Held to operate la that at present they
do not double up in their work to any note
worthy extent.

Prominent Business Men of New York
City Interviewed,
And They Express the Opinion That the Out
look i. Favorable for Better Times.
c -
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
New Yoke, Dec £.— Tee business men of
this city are generally hopeful of an increase
of bu«iness and better times, as will be seen
by the following brief interviews:
Mr. Martin J. Cooler, of Bates, Reed A
Coolcy, said: "i have no reason to fear any
serious impression in the dry goods trade,
but.rather expect a revival of business on a
solid basis. Our collections are food. The
shutting down of some of tbe mills will be a
benefit In the end, for there has, without
doubt, been over production. Prices Lave
reached rock bottom. After tbe holidays are
over and jobbers examine their stock with
the view of settling up fur this year's busi
ness, I look fora healthy and active trade.
Ido not expect anything like a boom, but a
steady, sound and safe business that will be
beneficial alike to the producer, wholesale
merchant, jobber and retailer.
Mr. J. H. Wellcr, of Teft A Weller, said:
"I look for a very good business in dry
goods next year providing the country is not
afflicted with cbe'era. Should the disease
appear as en epidemic*, it will destroy tbe
business of this city, for western and south
ern buyers will cot come to New York, nor
Hill they risk making purchases by mail.
In all other respect* the butinea* outlook is
good ami, in a commercial point of view,
very bealthy. There has been overstocking
in tbe past, but this evil is wearing out.
BuMm-ss men are now looking after their
legitimate occupations and devoting less
thought to speculation. This I regard a> one
of the best features for the coming year."
Mr. W. S. Dunn, of 11. B. Claflin i Co.,
sail: "I have no reason for changing my
opinion as to the prospects of the dry goods
business for the coming year, although trade
is not what might be called 'booming. 1 It is
is a healthy condition, and collections are
as good, if not better, than they were last
year, especially when the volume of business
is taken into consideration. I look for a
general revival in trade after a settlement
lot th? year's accounts, when jobbers will as
certain how their stock* are."
Mr. N. Millerd, of MiUcrd & Co., grocer
ies, said: "I see no reason why business
should not be good next year. We have
been busy in our special branches and have
found our customers ready to settle up ac
counts as freely as could be expected. There
docs not appear to beany overloading of
stocks among the general trade, and pur
chasers are acting continuously, merely buy
ing what they want and feeling certain that
they can pay for the gooJs purchased."
Mr Albert E. Why land, of Thurber, Why
land & Co., said: •'We have been busy for
some weeks past,yct, with all this, the purch
asers are baying carefully and cautiously.
Customers do not eeem Inclined to buy more
than they want or feel able to pay for at the
time of settlement. I regard this kind of
trade as very healthy and based on a good
foundation for future transactions. The
collections have been far better than at the
same period of last your. Tbe prospects of a
fair trade for IMB seem to be good."
Other houses in the grocery trade were
called upon, and all agreed that prospects of
a steady business for ISSS were good with a
promise that the settlements of the accounts
for 1334 would far exceed the average of col
lections and establish the nUbility of western
A representative of C. S. Parsons A Son,
Warren street, said: "The boot and shoe
trade since election has been fairly good. A
bright prospect for the coming year seems
apparent without any very great rush of
business, known by some under the name
of boom. A livelier trade is being looked
for." -■;. ■'•
Mr. R. d. Brown, of Brown A Co., dis
tributing agents for Straiton & Storm, said:
"The cigar trade has been dull during tbe
past year, owing to over-production, but
there has been since election a revival of
business which gives promise of stability."
Mr. J. W. Layman, of the Solace Tobacco
works, said: "I regard the prospects of trade
encouraging. I look not only for a good
business during the coming year, but also a
better statement of accounts at the close of
I*B4 than ha* marked the past six months.
Ido not tUink that any of the tobacco job
bers are overstocked, consequently, with the
opening of the new year, there will certainly
be a revival of business, the preliminary ef
fects of which arc even felt now by the gen
eral trade."
The operations of conservative banks are
Indices of prosperity or depression in trade.
Mr. Nsthiel Nile?, president of tbe Trades
men's National bank, said: "From my ob
servation* there is a prospect of national
prosperity, which is being established on a
firm basis, but 1 do not expect it to be at its
height for one or two years. I regard tbe
closing of the mills as beneficial to the
country at large, even if hurtful to those
more nearly interested in their operation.
There is plenty of money in New York and
little employment for it. New York banks
are doing a sound financial business and
jran not afford to pay more than 2 per cent,
on bank balances of country
customers, while in New England they are
paying from 2J-/ to 3 per cent. There is
very little mercantile paper, such as sound
banks would like to take, afloat in tbe city,
and cat'.Lal is therefore lying idle in banks.
Caution bas taken the place of risky specu
lation, and, with business men attending to
their legitimate occupations, we may look for
better times in the future."
Mr. Ferris, vice president of the National
bank, of New York, said: 'Trade Is cer
tainly improving as viewed from my stand
point and the prospect* are bright."
First Arrest in the Brand-Leman Case

; Over 60.000 Bushed of Wheat Poured
Upon the Ground by the (iivinjj
Way of an Elevator.*
<>pecial Tclegrata to the Globe.)
Cmcico, Dee. S. — Tbe huge grain elevator
i of Armour, Dale A: Co., at the corner of
i Oakley avenue and Sixteenth ctrcct, was
■ badly damaged at 5 o'clock yesterday even
• in«r, when the treat weight of the Immense
quan: of wheat stored therein forced
out the northeast corner of the , structure.
; The break came like a thunderclap, and
i about 60.000 bushel* of wheat were spilled
j upon the prairie, while fully 300.000 bushels
more were laid bare through the destruction
of a large portion of the roof. Tna heavy
wooden girder* supporting; the walls which
form the corner were pushed out of pUce,
\ and tumbled over like to many matches,and
, a piece of the thick roof, about thirty feet
square was carried away with the walls.
At the time of the accident two watchmen
were in the brick engine house of the ele
vator, bat as that building is apart from the
other, they were not injured. The boiler
bouse is situated on the southeast corner of
the grounds, and la only about ten feet dis
tant from the spot where the break occurred.
The Brit intimation the men had of
the accident was when thej heard a louJ
rumbling noise like tnunJer, and in another
moment they were startled by feeling the
quiver. At the same time the men were
terrorized at the ...put of the big girders be
ing forced through the thick west brick wall
of the room in which they stood. They
rushed out of the place and reached the open
airjuat In time to see the elevator walls give
way. • ■
An alarm was given by them, and in less
than one hour later a squad of men was at
work clearing away the mountain of wheat.
The damage to th.- building will amount to
something like $15,000, but it is thought that
more than 10,000 bushels will be lost. In
surance cannot be collected on either
building or property, and the loss »i»
be total. The cause of the break, whether it
was occasioned through the snapping of a
defective iron binder or the breaking of an
iron grain rod or the shifting of a pier could
not be ascertained and will -nut be known
until the wreckage shall have been cleared
The scene of the accident this afternoon
presented a picture of bustle and bustle.
Not less than 300 men were busily wielding
hammers, wheeling '(arrow,, lugeing band
crates, et#. The wheat was piled up to the
height of the building, and along a piece of
the north wall. A large number
of locomotive headlights were placed
about on the ground so the men could work
at night. m Numerous freight cars were
tracked near by, and wheat was dumped in
them and afterwards transferred to elevator
"D 1 at the foot of Morgan street
It is thought that the GO,OOO bushels of
wheat will be cleared away by 12
o'clock to-morrow night, and the remaining
300,000 bushels, which are lying exposed in
the building, will be out of "the *•* l.v the
end of the week. A new track U "being
constructed along the side of the split
so the wheat can i ran into cars on
the side track, and, as it will Ik;
fiuishod to-day, wiil aff>r! increaicJ facili
ties for the speedy transportation of the
•tuff. Messrs. Armour, Dale * Co. have
provided themselves with a large number of
tarpaulins with which t.i cover the exposed
wheat in the house in th- event of a storm.
An Explosion of Fire Damp Imprisons
a. Number of 3liners in a
Living: Tomb.
Philadelphia. Pa., Dec. B.— A special to
the Tune* from Sbamoktn Ufa. A terrible
explosion occurred in the Henry Clay shaft,
two miles from Shamokin, this afternoon,
while 200 men and boys were at work In the
mine. About four of these, who escaped the
fatal damp, made their way out through
the man ways and reached the surface. They
told the story of a fearful explosion in No.
8, tbe west gangway of the new slope. It
shook the entire mine from end to end. Of
those who still remained in the mine and
who worked in the vicinity of the explosion,
there were Richard Tuckelt, Jonathan Fox,
Peter Koalman, Henry Noble, Joel Dim-man.
Thos. C. Williams and a Polish miner, name
unknown. Coal and iron experts
promptly made an examination
and found the mine blocked
up with gas, which decides tbe fate of those
inside. Fane were got to work and every
means employed to drive out the poisonous
passes. At about 5 o'clock a rescuing party
entered the mine and near tb« bottom of the
slope found the body of Henry Noble. It
was horribly burned, and disfigured almost
beyond recognition, The crowd
at me mine numbered 500 or 600
persons, among them the families of the
imprisoned miners. Tbe second and third
attempts to enter the mine were unsuccess
ful, the fatal damp driving the men rapidly
back to the surface. The Indications at a
laic hour are the entombed men cannot be
reached though no effort at a rescue will be
spared. There are some signs that a fire
j may break out, but preparations are made to
i subdue a tire should it occur. Henry Clay
j slope ii owned and operated by J. Langdnu
& Co., of Elmira, N. V. and baa a shipping
capacity of over 100 cars dally, and gives
employment to between 300 and 400 men
and boys, who now will be forced into idle
ness for som« time. The explosion de
scribed is the severest ever experienced in
Northumberland county.

Minneapolis, Dec B.— At 10 SO o'clock
to-night a freight train was starting oat
from Short Line junction, on the Chicago,
Milwaukee A St. Paul railroad, being pulled
1 by engine 431 and pushed by engine 146, C.

. th™ wheels and stopped the train, which was
: going at the rate of three miles an hour.
I The obstruction proved to be a man about
! thirty-five years old, dressed in rough
I clothes, considerably the worse for wear.
Examination showed him to be dead, the
body being terribly mangled and the right
arm crushed. The bead and tbe left side
were crushed in, while the broken ribs pro
truded from the side. On the breast are
| three small wounds, which look as though

and cards and a time book containing tbe
name. Julius Paul, East Twentieth street,
near Third avenue, New York.
The accident, if such it -4s, occurred be
tween Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth streets
and Nineteenth avenue south. The body
! was dragged eleven feet, and was found Just
sixteen paces from the switch house. The
switchman says deceased came into tbe switch
house half an hour before be was found
dead. There is some suspicion that the man
was murdered before being ran over' by tbe
cars, «a the wounds on tbe braast look as
though they might have been caused by bul
lets. The remains were taken to Connelly

$12.50 or 114. to St. Paul?
Special Telegram to the Globe. I
( nt« AGO, Dec. 8. — To-morrow the general
passenger ;i_-ent- of the Missouri river aud
St. Paul lines will meet to further discuss the
relative rates from Chicago to Kansas City,
Council Bluffs and St. Paul. The North
western and Burlington are in favor of
making Council Bluffs and St. Paul local
rates 114 notwithstanding the fact that only
$12.50 is charged to Kans:.s City, an coin
distance with the other two points from Chi
cago. The Rock Island insist* that rates to
the three points shall be the same and will
maintain that ground at to-day's meeting.
The general passenger agents of
the first three Hoes held a
preliminary conference yesterday morning

rate for limit.. 1 tickets, but will insist
upon $14 for unlimited fares. The It »ck
Island's position I] that it will not be politic
to discriminate, and that no more should be
charged a passenger on an unlimited ticket
to Council Bluffs or St. Paul than to Kansas
City, the distance to Council Bluffs being the
same, and to St. Paul much less than to
Kansas City.
