LOGAN IN MAINE. A Strong Presidential "Wave for the Illi nois Senator Boiling Through Elaine's State. Commissioner Atkins Makes a Demand fox Honest Men to Manage the Indian Agencies. Secretary Manning Gives Some Pointed Views on Removals and Appointments. llallroad Land Grants Killed—Ex penses in the Interior Department Largely Keduced. I.ojan in Blame's State. Special to tlie Globe. Poiitland, Me., June 26.— The remark able demonstrations which have attended Lien. Logan's visit to Maine have started a veritable boom, which may end in Logan's nomination for the presidency in 1888. Blame was not invited to attend the en campment because Grand Army men, though Republicans, did not dare invite him. When some Grand Army posts paraded last August at Strong, in Franklin county, in uniform, to re reive and escort the Republican presidential candidate, the Grand Army of this department received a staggering blow. It was threatened for a long while to disrupt the organization in this state, but gradually the feeling subsided, and the har mony which had been broken was re stored. But after last year's experience the managers here dared to take no risk and they did not invite Mr. Blame, the second citizen of the state, as ex-Vice Pres ident Hainlin, who was bidden, is the first, for fear of being misunderstood. The result Is the Illinois man has had the whole Held to himself. Right here in Mr. Blame's pasture he has got the best of the feed. Mrs. Logan has been as conspicuous, as popular and as much an object of admira tion and respect to the curious crowd as the general himself. She knows how to keep herself before the public in a way modest and yet profitable, and helped the cause as it understood she always helped it. This has been a Logan week in the Blame state. Perhaps the thins: can be reversed, but it is doubtful if Mrs. Blame could do in Illinois what Mrs. Logan did in Maine. Honest Tflen Wanted. ' Bpccial to the Globe. Washington*. June 26. — Commissioner Atkins was asked to-day if a sweeping change is contemplated in his department. He replied: "1 cannot say that there is. There have been ho changes as yet worth mentioning. Out of sixty agents, live only have been dismissed. No general reduction is contemplated at present, inasmuch as it is difficult to procure the proper men for these places." ''What do I understand by the term proper men?" "Honest men; men who are animated more by philan thropic motives in applying for Indian agencies than for what they can make out of their opportunities." Losnn and Manning: Meet. Special to the Globe. Washington, June 26.— Gen. Logan called upon Secretary Manning before leav ing the city a few days ago. He desired to know if the revenue collectors at Quincy and Cairo, both of whom were friends of his. were to be retained or dismissed. "Wad," explained he, "I am not asking their retention. I only desire information on the subject, in order that they may ar range their plans for the future." Mr. Manning replied in his usual direct fashion: ' "They will both be dismissed as soon as suitable men can be found to fill their places. 1 may as well tell you that it is my purpose to make changes in all collection districts and in other branches of the department just as rapidly as I can bring them about." "I have no fault with that, at all," responded the gen eral. "It is only right that men filling re sponsible positions should be in full sym pathy with the administration. If I were a Republican secretary of the treasury and I found these important places tilled with Democrats, you may be sure I would re move every one of them." The frank state ments of these two gentlemen, who had never before met, seemed to put them at once on the most friendly footing. "I should like to ask you another ques tion," asked Gen. Logan. "I received a great many letters from old soldiers throughout the country asking me to protest against the dismissal of other ex-soldiers employed as watchmen and messengers in the departments here. What shall I say in response to these inquiries?" "You can simply say that these people are dismissed only for cause; and you may add, if you like, that their places are invariably filled by veterans of the late war, the only difference being that a Republican soldier is replaced by a Democratic soldier. The first named have been carefully looked after for nearly a quarter of a century. I think it time to give the others a chance." Land Grant Knocked Out. Washington, June 26. — The commis sioner of the general land office has de clined to accede to the request of the Ore gon & California Railroad company for the issue of patents on 3.200,000 acres of land already selected by the company, and to allow the selections to be made for a million acres more under the laud grant to that company in the state of Oregon. The grant expired in ISBO. Bills declaring a forfeiture of the grant were before congress at the last session. The commissioner says thai until the matter enforcing the forfeit ure has been determined by congress or the courts, it is his opinion that he should take no steps which would place it beyond the power of the legislative branch of the government to protect the public rights in the premises'. He Didn't Offer Enough. Special to the Globe. Washington, June 26.— 1n February, ISB4, Charles B. Olson of Boston accom panied the commission on Alabama claims as an insurance commissioner at London, Paris and Antwerp. He made headquarters at London, and, being an expert insurance man, charged such fees as he saw fit, making his office an immensely profitable one. About a mouth ago Mr. Olson con ceived the idea of having himself appointed United States consul at Guttenberg. Accordingly lie wrote a letter to ex-Con gressman Morse of Massachussetts, in which he said he would like the place, that he had been a Democrat of fifteen years' standing (and sitting, no doubt), and that if he, Morse, would get him the place he would give him 51, 500. Now, Morse, al though a descendant of the Hebrew faith, had made enough money in the clothing business to make an offer of 5i, 500 only a flea bite. Hence instead of aiding Olson in his desires sent his letter to that prince of earthly saints, Dorman B. Eaton, who designed the civil service law for George H. Pendleton. Eaton was shocked because he saw nothing in the letter for himself, and in turn he transmitted to the court of Alabama com missioners the secret of the indiscretion of Mr. Olson, which was made visible in a notice submitted by ex-Senator Cresswell for Attorney Olson's recall. Commodore Sicard's Work. Washington, June 26. — The four-year term for which Commodore Montgomery Sicard was appointed to act as the chief of the bureau of ordnance, navy department, will expire on the 30th inst. It is under stood that he will be reappointed. Several officers were desirous of obtaining the posi tion, but they have withdrawn all claims to it because of the general understanding that Commodore Sicard will be reapDointed. During Commodore Sicard's incumbency he has endeavored to advance the ordnance of the navy. For several months the bureau has been manufacturing guns for the new cruisers, and it is expected that these will be completed by the time the vessels are ready for service. One six inch gun, which is being fast completed, and has been known as a gun to be placed on the Dolphin if she is accepted, is pro nounced by naval officers to perform ex tremely well. Some go as far as to say it is the best gun of the kind that has ever been made. The erosion from about 270 shots is so slight that it is scarcely noticeable. Five additional six-inch guns and two eight-inch guns will be taken to the prov ing ground at an early date. No Whites Allowed in Oklahoma. Washington, June 26. — In the closing days of the last session congress authorized the president in his discretion to appoint a commission to negotiate for the cession to the United States of the so-called Oklahoma country. The commission has not yet been appointed, and it is understood that no ac tion will be taken regarding its authorized appointment uutil after the August election shall have been held by the live civilized nations of the Indian territory. Meanwhile it is learned that the president and all the members of the cabinet are in accord in maintaining that no white settlement shall be permitted on the Oklahoma lands under any circumstance wiihout the consent of the Indians under the terms of the treaty of 1866, and that the whole force of the gov ernment shall be employed, if necessary, to carry out the guarantees of that instrument. Fixing: the West Pointers. Washington, June 26. — It is expected that the recent graduates at the West Point military academy will be assigned to various regiments when Secretary Endicott returns to Washington next week. There were thirty-nine graduates. At the present time there exist 114 vacancies among the officers of the army, of which sixteen are in the cavalry branch, sixty-seven in the artillery, twenty-nine in the infantry and two in the engineer corps. After the assignment of the West Point graduates the non-commis sioned officers who have passed the exami nations by the boards convened by the vari ous departments will be assigned. Twelve men were ordered before the examining boards. It is believed six of them have successfully passed their examinations. This will make a total of forty-rive men to be assigned, leaving nine vacancies to be filled. Claims Affainst the World** Fair. Washington, June 26. — Director Gen eral Burke had an interview to-day with Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Fair child, which resulted in an agreement to deduct from the $330,000 appropriated by congress for the benefit of the creditors of the World's exposition §72,757, being the aggregate amount of claims in dispute, and to pay the sum of 8262,243 pro rata to those whose claims correspond with the accounts audited by the board of management. The §72,757 is to be disbursed when the disputed accounts have been adjusted between the claimants and the board of management or allowed by some tribunal having jurisdic tion. Swinging Around the Circuit. Pittsfield, Mass., June 26. — Vice President Hendricks arrived here at noon to-day as the guest of James W. Hull. He lunched with William R. Plunkett and afterwards drove around the country. At 6 o'clock he dined at Mr. Hull's residence. This evening he had an informal reception at the businessmen's rooms. He will leave to-morrow afternoon for Atlantic City. Lamar Reducing Expenses. Washington, June 26. — The cost of the stationery to be supplied for the use of the ulterior department during the next fiscal year will be §47.891, a reduction of over §31,000 as compared with the expenditure for the same purpose this year. The supply of gold pens upon requisition is regarded by Secretary Lamar as an extravagance and will be discontinued. Capital Chips. Washington, June 26. — The clerk of the house of representatives says that from present indications there will be fewer con tested election cases before the next con gress than there have been before any con gress for forty-six years. There will not be more than four and probably not more than three. It was stated at the White house to-day that no change will be made in the office of collector of customs at New York before next week. Mr. Robertson's term of office expires on the 28th hist, and there is a probability of his retaining the office until the Ist prox. The "Butler house force" of senate em ployes, consisting of three messengers at salaries of 5i, 440 each, two janitors at S9OO and several laborers at 5720, will be dropped from the pay-rolls of the sergeant at-anns at the end of the present month. These men are nearly all Republicans. At the same time one assistant doorkeeper of the senate at 31,800. two messengers at 81,440 each and some employes of the fold ing room will be dropped. Of these two are Democrats, one is Republican and the politics of the other is unknown. Gen. Frank Armstrong of New Orleans was to-day appointed by the secretary of the interior an Indian inspector, to succeed Inspector Newell, suspended. Gen. Hazen, chief signal officer, has is sued an order extending to a day and a half in advance, the weather predictions which now only cover a day. The change will go into effect July 1. Attorney General Garland says that he will reduce the force of examiners in the department of justice considerably, as he finds that there is not sufficient work to be done to justify the employment of the en tire force. A QUEER CASE. Release of a Forger on a Supposed Telegram From Mayor Rice. Baltimore, June 26. — Harry L. Mc- Cauley, who was formerly private secretary to H. J. Jack, general superintendent of the Southern Express company at Savannah, Ga., was indicted by the grand jury of this city on the 9th inst., for pass ing a forged check for §522, indorsed by Mr. Jack, on the Manufacturers' National bank of Baltimore. McCauley was arrested in St. Paul on the 16th. A detective, amied with a requisition from the governor of Maryland, started to bring him back, but was stopped on the way by a telegram from Chief of Police Clark, of St. Paul, stating the mayor of that city had ordered the prisoner's release. When arrested McCauley telegraphed the officers of the bank, asking if prosecution would be stopped ou the payment of the amount of the check. On receiving a negative reply he employed counsel, who succeeded in per suading tfte mayor to release him. Mar shall Gray of this city, is highly indignant, and questions the right of a city executive officer to release a prisoner, at least one charged with so grave an offense as forgery: On receipt of the above dispatch a Globe reporter called on Mayor Rice and made in quiries as to the truth of the statement con cerning his requesting the chief of police to aeiid a message ordering McCauley's release. The mayor gave an unqual ified denial of the whole matter. If such a telegram was sent from St. Paul it was a successful attempt to secure Mc- Cauley's release by fraud. McCauley is the man arrested, in the West hotel, Minneapo lis, by Detective John O'Connor and whose name was scratched on the police records as H. Dennis. He was a young fellow and after his arrest was treated more like a guest than a prisoner. He was a shrewd looking fellow, bordering on the species known as dude, and succeeded in making friends of all -with whom he came in con tact ST. PAUL, SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 27, RED SKINS RAMPANT.

Cheyenne Outbreak Feared. ■Washington, June 26. — Senator Ingalls to-day received a telegram from the gov ernor of Kansas, saying that an incursion by the Cheyennes similar to that of 1861 is apprehended and that great uneasiness pre vails. The Plrt of Kansas has been rapidly settled up this season and the newcomers are in a very defenseless con dition. The governor expressed an earnest hope that the secretary of war would sta tion troops on the southwestern border of the state to guard against an attack by the Indians. Secretary Endicott being out of the city. Senator Ingalls called upon the president and was assured that the matter had been the subject of earnest consideration by the cabinet, and that active measures have been taken by both the interior and war departments, to prevent, if possible, any outbreak of the Indians, and to repress it promptly should one occur. Gen. Augur has reported to the war department that he has sixteen companies, ten of cavalry and six of in fantry at Fort Reno, Indian territory. The last company arrived at the fort to-day. The general apprehends no immediate out break of Cheyenne Indians. They have been informed of the proposed appoint ment of a commission to investigate their troubles, and express a willingness to await the result Late specials from the Cheyenne Indian agency say that the situation at the agency looks critical and the officers, employes and traders are liable to be at tacked by the infuriated Cheyennes at any moment. The Indians are drilling daily in regular warlike form. The arrival of the troops under Sunnier only seems to have stirred up the Indians, who put out extra spies in all directions. Without prompt and efficient action on the part of the government, a bloody raid and massacre will be the re sult. The special, which is from a reliable man at the agency, says that the Indians are in sufficient force to butcher all the whites, including the troops now stationed there. The Indians keep their ponies picketed night and day, and they are well armed and have plenty of ammunition. The people at the agency dare not attempt to reach the Kansas border. Five companies of the Fifth cav alry, under Maj. Carpenter, passed through this city by special train to-day and will be within a day's march of Reno to-morrow morning. Crook's Campaign. Tucson, Ariz., June 26. — Gen. Crook has been briskly engaged for the past few days refitting and repairing for the Indian campaign in the Sierra Nevadas, and is about ready to start for that locality. It is unofficially stated that the campaign will b eondud c staec follows: Geu. Crook, with scouts and in fantry, will enter the Sierra Madre moun tains, endeavor to capture or kill Geron imo and his followers, should they escape him and attempt to return to the reservation. In Arizona or New Mexico he will be inter cepted by the cavalry which will be sta tioned along the line. Troops will camp at different water holes along the line between Fort Huachuca and Silver creek, sc the entire line will be guarded. Their Crimes Expiated. Memphis, Term., June 26. — John Mc- Keever, colored, who shot and killed Wil liam J. Trainer, four miles south of this city on the 17th of last December, was hanged at 12:30 o'clock to-day, within the inclosure of the comity jail. The condemned man attempted to commit suicide at mid night last night by cutting the arteries of his arms and legs with a tough piece of tin shaped like a knife, which he made out of a tin snuff box. When found by the night turnkey at 4 o'clock this morning he was unconscious from the loss of blood. Medi cal aid was summoned and he soon rallied. Rev. Father Walsh and Father J. H. Wood attended him on the scaffold and adminis tered the last absolution. When asked by Sheriff Canns if he had anything to say he replied: "Yes, lam no murderer." Seeing his attorney among those who were present to witness the execution, lie called to him, saying: "Good-by,eMr. Moss; you bet your life lam going to die right." These were his last words, and live seconds afterwards the trap was sprung. Mrs. Trainer, the widow of the murdered man, occupied a seat on the scaffold, and witnessed her hus band's assassin take his leap into eternity. JORDAN TAYLOB HANGED. Evansville, Ind., June 26.— Jordan Taylor, colored, was hanged at Hopkins ville, Ky., at 12:30 to-day in the presence of 5,000 or 6,000 people, mostly colored. Saloons were open and there was consid erable drunkeuuess on the streets, but or der was maintained. The criminal passed a restless night. A squad of forty sur rounded the jail yard. Taylor was bap tized yesterday in the river in the presence of thousands of people crowding the banks. He mounted the gallows with a finn step and took his position under the beam. The rope and black cap were adjusted. After religious exercises the trap was sprung and in nine minutes life was declared extinct. Taylor spent the morning laughing and joking, but said he was ready to die. The execution was practically public, as the hills and high buildings gave those outside ample opportunity to see. He spoke for five minutes on the scaffold. A terrible rain and thunder storm followed the exe cution. The crime for which Taylor was exe cuted was the murder of his mistress, Sallie Sanders, on the Bth of October, 1884, near Casky station, on the Louisville & Nash ville railroad. On the night of the murder Sallie Sanders, who had been working for Mrs. Eliza Bronough, started for her home. For several months, on account of a quarrel, she had not been living with Taylor, who, muling that a reconciliation was impossible, determined to kill her. On the night in question he followed her to her home, over taking her shortly before reaching there. The quarrel was renewed, and Taylor, en raged at a remark which she dropped as to another lover, crushed her skull with an axe, killing her instantly. To make sure of the work he struck her two blows after she had fallen. He then took her by the feet and dragged her to the willows, a hun dred feet distant, where the body was con cealed, to be discovered two days afterward. Taylor was arrested on suspicion, and.being confronted with the evidence against him, confessed. He attempted to implicate an acquaintance named Lee, an old colored man, voted in the neighborhood as a "voo doo dootor," but afterwards retracted the charge, confessing that he alone had done the killing. This is the first legal hanging that has taken place in this county since 1863. Their Neat Little Camei. MontbeaTv, June 26. — Information fur nished by two convicts, Hale and Fox, to the detectives, is already bringing forth a result, and has revealed the fact that the gang of forgers whose operations Have, teen. so successfully carried out, have ac complices and confederates not only in America, but in nearly every country in Europe. Bent, now in prison in Toronto for issuing forged:' .paper on >f . the Bank . of Commerce, is ; : the person who successfully passed a large num ber of counterfeit Bank of England notes here last year, swindling N.

His accomplice, who turns out to be ' Charles ; Heuder, whose exploits in \ London, England, New York and Mon treal are well known, and his real name, is Woods. He was at one time a member of . the London bar, and served seven years' . penal servitude • for forgery. He went to New York and had to flee for defrauding an insurance company there by means of bogus policies. He then appears to have traveled through New England, represent ing himself as the agent of a financial house in New York which was desirous of making loans with farmers and real estate owners. He received applications for advances, and in each case exacted a deposit of 3000 for preliminary and for examining the property titles. When he had made a large-enough haul in this way he cleared out. lie arrived in Montreal three years ago arid carried on the same game with wonderful! success for two years, receiving correspondence from all parts of the country. j He formed a syn- ' dicate, built the Crystal Palace opera house, j which he ran for a year with success. ; About a year ago his swindles were brought to light here, when he cleared out and formed the gang of forgers Jat Toronto. | ■According to Hale and Fox, the head of the gang is a rich Jew in Vienna, who furnishes: the money necessary to put up. -''the' jobs.

LIVELY DAT FOR SPOET Harvard Surprises Tale and Everybody Else by Winning the Bowing Race With Ease, And Thus Creates Trouble in the Lat ter Grew of a Bather Seri ous Nature. Harry "Willces Beats Trinket at Mystic Park, Boston, in Tiirce Straight Heats. A Good Day and Track for the Brighton Beach Races--Other Sporting Events. Harvard Beats Tale. New London, Conn., June 26. — Not in the history of the Yale-Harvard races has the interest manifested previous to any race been brought to such a high state of excitement as it was before to-day's con test. Early last night all the hotels were overcrowded and lodgings were not to be had at any price. The night trains from Boston to New York and New York boats largely increased the number of visitors and the morning trains from all directions came in. crowded. New Haven sent over an excursion train ot fifteen cars in addition to the regular trains. The betting, which, after the Columbia's race, changed from odds on Yale to even money, and then to odds on Harvard, is now about even. An unusually large amount of money has been put up on the result of the race. The final betting was about even, although some enthusiastic Harvard men gave odds rather than not place their money. At 8 a. m. the water was in excellent condition, there being but a slight ripple and very light southwest winds. As the time for the race ap proached the excitement became intense, especially among the Yale men, over a re port that Capt. Flanders was ill and could not row. A Yale official who was seen on the subject confirmed the report of the cap tain's illness, but added that, although FLANDERS WAS SICK, it had been decided that it would be better for him to row than to make a change in the stroke. This story changed the betting to 100 to 80 in Harvard's favor, and the Harvard men were furnishing all the money that Yale was calling for. About 9:45 a. m. the breeze freshened consider ably and blew almost directly across the course, which was considered an ad vantage for Yale. The water had grown quite rough at 10:15 o'clock. The Harvard boat came out at 11:02, Yale fol lowing one minute later, and both crews paddled leisurely to the starting point. At 11:25 the word was given, and Yale took the water very quickly and obtained a lead of about two feet. Harvard settled to her work, however, and at fifty yards from the start had drawn up even and was begin ning to draw ahead. In less that 300 yards Harvard showed clear water between her self and Yale, and Yale never got near her again. At this time both crews were pull ing forty strokes. Harvard, however, showed her stroke, and at the first half mile had a clear lead of half a length, which kept in creasing, Yale still rowing forty and Har vard thirty-three. At the first mile Harvard led by two lengths, her time being 5 min utes, 50 seconds. At the mile-and-a-half YALE SPURTED and began to decrease the lead a trifle. Harvard immediately increased her stroke and began to draw ahead again. At the mile-and-a-half Harvard's time was 8 min utes, 20 seconds, and the race was virtually over. At the two-mUes Harvard led by three lengths, pulling a fine, steady stroke of 36. Yale hit her stroke again opposite the navy yard, but Harvard easily held her own. Harvard made the two miles in 10 minutes and 91 % seconds. From here to the finish the water was quite rough and the time was slow. At three miles Harvard led by ten lengths, passing the flag in 18 minutes, 53 }£ seconds. Yale's time was 19 minutes, 49K seconds. Both were pulling about the same stroke, and Yale's style had improved. The Harvard men along the course became very jubilant and Yale had lost all interest in the race. Both crews spurted at the finish, but Harvard crossed the line fifteen lengths ahead an easy win ner. The official time was: Harvard; 25 minutes, 12X seconds; Yale, 26 minutes, 26 seconds. At the finish the Harvard crew appeared fresh and in good condition, while in the Yale boat Peters and Parrott ap peared to be blown, and Storrs pulled in a rather restless style. BY MILES.

A Yale oarsman not in the race explained Yale's disaster by saying that Yale was out rowed and Yale paid too much attention to the inside of the boat, while Harvard paid strict attention to the stroke. Certain it is that the result is a great surprise to Yale, as she considered her crew sure winners. Many prominent Yale men have freely ex pressed their opinion that the result of this race will T>reak up the Bob Cook and Louis Hull regime. It is now stated that two days ago Cook and Flanders had a serious misunderstanding, and Cook's lan guage was so«trong that it broke Flanders up so that tears sprung to his eyes. The record of the Yale and Harvard series now stands, Harvard 6, Yale 4, while the Yale crew of 1884 holds the best time record. The men of the Yale crew decline to talk about the matter further than to say that it was fairly won. mystic Park Races.

New Youk, June 26.— The pool selling question came up in the supreme court to day, on a prayer for an injunction by.the secretary and treasurer of the Coney Island Jockey club to restrain the club from put ting into operation its proposed plan of evading the law agaiust the selling of pools by allowing the public to subscribe ariy desired amount in behalf of any horse in the race, subscrib ers for the whining horse to receive divi dends after the race is rim. The motion was argued at length on both sides and Justice Pratt said he would deliver an opinion before the next term of court, which convenes In October. The case is a test, and, whatever decision, will be carried to general term and court of appeals. If the decision is finally against the club it is claimed it will practically kill horse racing in the state. Trouble in the Club. Chicago, June 26. — A disagreement has arisen in the management of the Washing ton Park club, whose inauguaal running meeting begins to-day.

St. Petersburg, June 26. — The Jour nal de St. Petersburg in an editorial ex presses respect and sympathy for Mr. Gladstone. Keferring to the new British cabinet, the Journal says: The Conserva tives have the good sense to consider the necessities of the situation. The Marquis of Salisbury succeeds to the position already vacated by Mr. Gladstone. The path to follow is thoroughly the one marked by the mutual movement of history. The sense of responsibility and the knowledge of Europe possessed by the Marquis of Salis bury, will mould his acts according to the prevailing needs of the time and the re spective positions of the several peoples, and he will determine the relations between them on these grounds. Russia, with re spect to her own interests and in view of her conciliatory policy, regards with calm ness the accession of a new ministry. The Report Denied. London, June 27. — The Post says it is authorized to deny the report that Lord Salisbury telegraped to Lord Wolseley that he was in full sympathy with the latter's views regarding the withdrawal from Egypt, but that the government was unable to con tinue the expedition.

Prof. Huxley will retire from the govern ment post in October, on a yearly pension of £1,200. A Counterfeiter's Offer. Special to the Globe. Chicago, June 26.— George J. Osborne, the counterfeiter, having failed to secure his release on a promise of future good con duct, now proposes to trade some valuable secrets to the government for his liberty. Osborne is unquestionably an inventor of considerable ability, and he claims that he never desired to adopt the profession of a counterfeiter. It was while pursuing his favorite pastime of experimenting in metals that he discovered a process and a combina tion by which he could make coins having exactly the same weight, ring and appear ance as silver. As he had no money with which to carry out his projects, he yielded to the temptation to become a counterfeiter for a time, and began to manufacture the most dangerous silver coin that has ever been made. Osborne now offers to turn over his secrets to the government and give up counterfeiting forever on condition that he be released. His offer will be refused. A Peculiar Elopenient. Special to the Globe. Toledo, June 26. — A queer sort of an elopement was developed here to-night by the appearance of John Wood, who says he lives in Clinton, Col. He is looking for his wife, the mother of twelve children and ten grandchildren, who ran away from home last April with William Bradley, a youth of 21. and $190 of Wood's good hard cash. The eloping grandmother took along a twelve-year-old daughter and the trio hied to Detroit, where they lived at the poorhouse for two weeks. Wood followed them and traced them to Monroe, and learned they had lived as paupers while there. They were furnished pauper's tickets and are supposed to be here to-night Mrs. Wood is 67 years old. Grant's improvement. Mt. McGregor, N. V., June 26. — Gen. Grant's afternoon was chiefly spent on the veranda, where at times he dozed. Dr. Shrady left for New York this afternoon. Soon after Dr. Douglas sat down near the general. "This is the best day you have had since you came here, is it not?" he asked of his patient. "Decided ly," replied the general in audible tones. Dr. Newman came up the mountain with his wife this evening.' At 9 o'clock the general retired. The usual amount of mor phia was given him, though Dr. Douglas was of the impression that the patient might have slept without it. All was quiet at midnight. Illust Stop at Once.

American Lines Arranging to Compete With Canadian Pacific for Man itoba Business. Signal Pailnre of the Transcontinental As sociation to Come to Any Agreement. Arrangement Between the Omaha and Duluth Roads for Regulat ing Duluth Business. General Reasons Assigned for the Ad vance of Manitoba Stocks-" Rail Notes. Fighting for Manitoba Traffic. General Traffic Manager Alexander of the Manitoba road has returned from Montreal, where he went- to confer with Grand Trunk officials on competing with the Canadian Pacific road for through inter- Canadian business. This matter has be come one of great importance to the Grand Trunk, Northwestern Traffic association lines and the Manitoba road. The Cana dian Pacific is making a low through rate on freight from Montreal and Toronto to Winnipeg, so low that American lines are unable to compete with it for Manitoba traffic. The diverting of this business by the Canadian Pacific is particularly annoy ing to the Grand Trunk road, for it enjoyed an enormous amount of trade before its competitor was built. The Canadian Pacific all-rail rate is about a third less than the all-rail rate by the Grand Trunk and its connections. The latter line has a cir cuitous route by rail and water, over which it has been making very low rates. The route is via rail to Sarnia, boat to Duluth, St. Paul <8j Duluth road to Hinckley, Manitoba road from Hinckley to St. Vincent and from there by the Ked River Navigation company's line to Winnipeg. It made rates by this route at $1.47 per 100 pounds on first-class business, but the Canadian Pa cific beat this rate 10 cents per 100 pounds, giving an all-rail route. The plan now on foot to bring the Cana dian Pacific to time is to reduce rate*, even to an unremunerative basis, by the American lines, and of course the Canadian Pacific has to depend on through traffic alone and will be compelled to meet the rates if it wants any business, which it does; and it is probable that it will go the American lines one better. This is what the latter companies want. They will hold the rates below a paying basis and throw all the to the Canadian Pacific, which will have to accept it at its reduced rate, and the thought is entertained by the American lines that it will soon be anxious to come to an agreement whereby the traffic will be divided and fair rates maintained. Mr. Alexander's trip was unsuccessful, as the Grand Trunk officials were in New York and elsewhere. No Action Taken. General Passenger Agent Charles S. Fee of the Northern Pacific road has returned from Omaha, where he attended a meeting of the Transcontinental Passenger associa tion. At this meeting an attempt was made to abolish east-bound emigrant rates from the Pacific coast for the reason that they were made a medium for cutting rates on other classes of business. Other business of much importance was brought up but no definite action of any character was taken. This was on account of the Southern Pa cific and Santa Fe locking horns on busi ness, and they not coming to any agree ment, the meeting was adjourned. The next regular meeting will be held Aug. 2, but the commissioner may see fit to call a meeting before that tune. - Sew Traffic Arrangements. J. T. Clark, general freight agent for the Omaha line, and E. F. Dodge, general freight agent for the St. Paul & Duluth road, have returned from Duluth, where they were arranging for business as soon as the Northern Pacific bridge is opened up lor traffic. The Omaha will run over the St. Paul & Duluth track into Duluth from Superior, and these traffic men were in structing Mr. Vance, general agent for the St. Paul & Duluth, at Duluth, how to bill. The separate ticket offices of the two com panies will be abolished, and E. N. Doty, at the St. Paul & Duluth and Northern Pacific agent, will be made union ticket agent, with office at the former com pany's depot. Nothing- in the Rumor. New York, June 26. — A story was pnb lished some time ago which stated that the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad was endeavoring to gain control of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba railway. The sharp advance in Manitoba stock during the past few days has caused a revival of the rumor, but an investigation fails to reveal anything which would indi cate that the report is true. Vice President Kennedy of the Manitoba road is now in Canada, but Ms private secretary said this morning that so far as any official action is concerned there is nothing In the story. He says that it is possible that the directors of the Chicago, Burling ton & Quincy are quietly pick ing up the stock or that the advance is due to an effort on the part of somebody to squeeze the shorts in Manitoba stock. He does not credit the story. Peter Geddes, a director of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, in regard to the rumor, says: "I really cannot say there is any foundation to the rumors, for Ido not know. If I were forced to express an opinion, I should say the rumors were the efforts of the owners to advertise the Manitoba property, for I un derstand the stock is closely held, and under such circumstances an advance of the price of the stock is a simple matter. 1 guess the whole thing is only an adver tisement." General Notes. The Omaha road has declared a dividend of 1% per cent. W. O. Rogers has been appointed station agent for the Northern Pacific at Ellsworth. W. J.
