At the next election the people will be tailed upon to vote on the question of state banking system. The l&st legisla- lure passed an act "concernine corpora tinns with banking powers," which pro Tides that on ratification of the act by vote of the people "it shall be lawful to form banks and banking associations for the purpose of discount and deposit, and to buy and sell exchange, and do a gener al banking business, excepting only is suing bills to circulate as money. shall have power to loan money on per sonal and real security and accept and execute trusts." Permission to organize must come from the state auditor. The shareholders of each association shall be held individually responsible, equally and ratably, and not one for the other, for all contracts, debts and engagements of such person or asso ciation to the extent of the amount of their stock therein at the par value there of, in addition to the amount invested such shares. The auditor shall, as often as he shall deem necessary or proper ani at least once in each year, appoint a suita ble person to make an examination of the affairs of every bank established under the act, and report thereon to .he auditor. Associations organized under the act will be bodies corporate and politic, and may carry as assets the real estate necessary to do their bunking business, and such other real estate to which it may obtain title in the collection of its debts, but may not carry in its assets any real estate except its baoking house, for a period of more than five years after acquiring title to the same. Associations may be organ ized under this act in corporated towns. Tillages or cities of not to exceed 5,(XX population, with a capital stock of not less than $25,000, and in all cities, vil lages or incorporated towns of not to ex ceed 10.000 population, with a capital stok of not less than $"0.0O. This is a matter of considerable impor tance, and the people should inform themselves in regard to it as thoroughly as possible before voting on it. Whtre Are th BIe Republican? Said a very hard worker in the Demo cratic cause tn an equally hard wjrker In the Rfpubliim emme, both being good friend, ami just thtin standing before the Hoffman house rafe bar: "I say, Jack, what is the matter with af the big guns of vnur partv? None of them have taken any special interest in the campaign and the only man you have out of any real prominence is Jim Blaine. "Yfe, ynu are ritht. I have wondered myself. Kverythintr has gone awry since the Chicago nomination. Blessed if I didn't think when we started that we were going to whip you fellows, bnt I have about given it up. Tin1 main props have taken no interest, and although we may keep up a semblance of enthusiasm, I feel discouraged myself," replied the Republican. An mammal ion of the Arid shows the TVmoerat's view to bo true. While Democratic senators have evinced their fealty to parly and principle by most ear nest labor, the Republican senators and thefr principal a pouters have sulked in their tents. If they have opened their mouths once they have deemed that amply sufficient. It may wrll be asked, just on the cloning days of election, "Whore, oh, where is the judicial Edmunds'!" Four years ago he would not speak for Blaine. Does he believe even now that Harrison is only a figurehead for tno "Uncrowned King" But while the great Elaine himself is aoouting over trusts in Indiana where are his co-laborers, Kugene Hale and Frye? Where is the serewthat is loose there? And. great guns and Artillery, where is the judge advocate of the Kansas militia, who tried chicken thieves in 'fill, during the war, and who has blasphemed the memories of MeClellan and Hancock since, the magniloquent Ingalls. And the 250 words to the sentence William M. Evarts, the pridn of the Republicans, to what Bection of the. unknown globe has he emigrated during tis campaign? The ghosts of all the past are Tr-lllng for the whereahouis of Col. Bob Ingersoli. It does seem sintrnlur to Democrats, and it must strike the Republican ndnd much more forcibly, that the great talent of the G. O. P. hns lain dormant during this battle, and that only second rate and fourth rate speakers Lave been sent out. It is a mighty poor view of the situation for these Republicans. With only Blaine in the field. It makes very sorry appearance. And in reference to this particular individual, an old Stal wart, of the spirit of Rnncoe Conkling stripe, exclaimed: "It would have been a good thing if the Chinese wall he like so well had betn built in the center of the Atlantic before Blaine got back." This Is a very common exclamation among the old Stalwarts. The feeling against Blaine just a intense today as it was four years ago. and tho fear that Blaine is likely to be at the head of Harrison s gov ernment, in the event of the latter'a elec tion, will force many of them into the Democratic camp in the present campaign.

M avail, of tbe Rock Island independent political club. hs re ceived word that Mr, James Gleason, a railroad tnau of Chicago, will address the club at the Island City club rooms in this city Friday night. It is told up near Joslin that Oliver Olson, Esq , spent one entire Sunday afternoon recently in trying to convince a back sliding republican that he was making a mistake in supporting Cleve land, but he failed to gain his point. It must be a poor cauee when Olson's per suasiveness fails to roitfce an im pression. The Union shows its hand at last as to its violent opposition to Mr. McEniry's candidacy for state's attorney. Finding that no reasonable excuse could be shown why he should be so inconsistent ly opposed, tbe morning sheet lets out the secret he favored the Ar ocs in the matter of printing the briefs in the abattoir case, which was taken up to the suotvrae court. This charge against Mr. McEniry ought to be put up alongside of the reason that Mr. Casteel should not be elected circuit clerk because he is "a red head Casteel dude.' Bobby Bennett is almost completely lost track of in tbe present campaign, as far as influence is concerned. To be sure he has been retained as he was two years ago at a respectable consideration to "see the worKingmen for Congressman Gest, and it was in furtherance of this line of policy that he got ouW the circular here tofore commented upon. He is but the tool of Mr. Gest, and the workingmen of Rock Island and Moline must feel highly elated over his misrepresentations of leading them around by the nose and vers fying such assertions by signing their names to circulars they have known noth ing about. Butterfly Bobby may be of use to Mr. Gest, but he is no longer of anvuse to the honest workingmen. IMYorce in lMfiVrent States. New York reco-uzes hut one ground marital infidelity for divorce. Its law is the most stringent in the Union, In rnewt of tbe other states there is a marked similarity in the grounds for divnree. In all except Bouth Carolina, wLioh lias no divorce law- marital infidelity is the main ground. In nearly all other the causes are cruelty, habit ual drunkenness and abandonment or neglect to support. In some states the courts have taken a literal view of rruelty and given it a wideseope. Jp- others divorce wiil be granted only when extrenw cnieity or personal vio lence is proved. The brondi?st provision is found in the law of Connecticut. It irives the courts discretion to grant divorce for ''any such misconduct as permanently destroys tbe happiness of petitioner and defeat the purpose of tbe marriamJ relation." That mibt make the Nutmeg state a popular resort for divorce seeker from other parts of the country, but unfortunately for them a three years' resi dence is require 1 of every petitioner.

WAflHixtrroa City, Oct SI. By direction of the president, the secretary of state yes terday informed Lord Sack vi lie that for causes hereto fore made known to her majesty's gov ernment his contin uance in his present official position in , the United States is no longer accepta ble to this govern ment, ana would f consequently be det- niwisteb WEST. rimental to the relations between the two countries. The grounds of this action on the part of the United States are stated In a re port of the secretary of state to the president, dated the 29th instant, which is as follows: To the President: The nndersitrned has the honor to mihmit for your consideration the fol lowing statement, with a vlewto receive your di rection thereo' : On tlie 4th of September last, a letter purport, ig to le written by one Charles F. Mnrcliison. dated at Pnmona, Cal.. was sent from that placet) the British minister at this capital, iu which the writer solk-itl an expression of his views in regard to certain unsettled diplomatic questions between the United States aud Great Britain, atatmg at the same time that suco an ex Prussian was sought by him for the purpose of determining his vote at the approaching presiden tial election. He fttated that he was a natural ized dtixt-n of the United States, of English birth, but that he still considered England the mother land, and that this fact led him to seek advice from the British representative in this country. He further stated that the information he sought was nut for himself alone, but to en able him to give certain assurances to many other person1 in the same situation as himself, for the purpose of influencing and determining their political action as citizens of tbe United States of English birth, but who st U regarded their original otiligatious of allegiance as para mount. The letter also contained gross reflec tions upon the conduct of this government in re spect to questions now in controversy and unset tled between the United States and Great Britain, and both directly and indirectly imputed insin cerity in such conduct. To this tetter tbe British minister at once re plied from Beverly. Mass.. under date of the 13th of September last. Id this reply be stated that anv political party which openly favored tbe mother country at the present moment would l.tse popularity, and that the party in power is fully aware of that fact;" that tn respect to tbe 'nuestious with Canada which have been unfor tunately reopened since the rejection of the fish- eries treaty by tbe Republican majority in the senate, and by the president s message to which you allude." "All allowances must there fore be made for the political situation as regards tbe presidential election." The minister thus gave his assent and sanction to the aspersions and imputations above referred to. Thus, under his correspondeut s assurance of secrecy, in which the minister concurred by marking his answer "private, be undertook to advise a citizen o( the United states how to ex ercise the franchifte of suffrage in an election close . ti aid tor the presidency and vice presi dency k, : the United States, and through him, as the letter suggested, to influence tbe votes of many others. I pon this correspondence being made public, the minister received the representatives of the public press, and in frequent interviews with them, intended for publication, added to the im pugnments which he had already made of the good faith or this government m its public action and international dealings. Although am pi1 time and opportunity havr been afforded him for the disavowal, modification, or correction of his state ments, to some of which his attention was called personaUy by the undersigned, yet uo such a dis- vowal or modifieotion h:w been made by him through tbe channel in which His statements first found publicity. Tbe qneshoo ts thus presented whether it is compatible with the dignity, security, and inde pendent sovereignty of the United States to per mit the representative of a for- ign government in this country not only to receive and answer with out disapproval, and confirm by his repetition. aspersions upon its political action, tint also to in terfere in ts domestic affairs by advising persons formerly his countrymen, as to their political course as citizens of tbe I nited States As between this country and Great Britain there can be no controvt-rsy as to the severance of the ties of original allegiance by naturaliza tion. Disputes on this point were fully put rest by the treaty of naturalization concluded be tween the two countries on the IHth day of May, 1870. Therefore it will not be contended, nor was such contention ever admitted by us, that citizens of the United States of British origin are subject to any claim of tbe country of their original aue- giance. The undersigned also nas tne nooor to call at tention to the provisions of section 5,335 of the revised statutes of the United States, by which severe penalties are visited upon the citizen the United States who, without the authority or permission of this government, "commence! or carries on any verbal or written correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or ,ny officer or agnt thereof.' either with an in tent to infltiencu the action of such government or its agents in relation to any disputes or contro versies with the United States, or with an intent 'to defeat the measures of the government of the United Stales." Those penalties are made equal ly applicable to every citizen of the Uolted States, not duly authorized, who "counsels, advi-w, or assists in any such correspondence" with similar unlawful intent. The undersigned respectfully advises that the attention of the attorney general of the United States be directed to these enactments, in order that an investigation may be made with a view to rrtain whether they have not been violated in present case by the correspondent of the British minister. By your direction the attention of the British government has iu a spirit of comity been called to the conduct of its u. mister as above described. but without result. It therefore becomes neces. sary for this government to consider whether, as the guardian of its own setf-resnect and of tbe integrity of ita institutions, it will permit further intercourse to be held through the present British minister at this capital. It is to be observed that precedents are not wanting as to tlie question un der consideration. It is a settled rule, essential to the maintenance of international intercourse. that a diplomatic representative must be persona grata to the government to which he is accred ited. If, by his conduct, he renders himself persona non grata, an announcement nf the fact may be made to his government. In the present ease all the requirements of comity have been duly communicated to her majesty's government with an expression of the opinion of this govern ment ia regard thereto. Respectfully submitted. 8igoed. T. F. Bavaro. Sackville Surpriaes Chamberlain. Londoic, Oct. St. It is stated in Birming ham that Chamberlain has privately ex pressed his groat surprise and regret at the asinine conduct of Lord Sackville. When m Washington Chamberlain is reported to have said be formed the conviction that h Brituh minister was one of the most courte ous, considerate and astute gentlemen in tbe 1 diplomatic service, and is now totally at loss to account for his injudicious action. The officials at the foreign office are reticent as to the presumed action of the premier in the matter, but unhesitatingly ridicule tbe report that Lord Sackville will be suc ceeded by Sir Charles Tupper. SACKVILLE IS UNCOMMUNICATIVE. Be Seems to be "Away OB" on an Import ant Point Other Comment. Wabhinhton CrrY, Oct SI Secretary Bayard's official communication was deliv ered to Lor8 Sackville at the British lega tion, a few niinutes after 5 o'clock in tbe afternoon by one of the state department messengers. Later in tbe evening a copy at tbe secretary's statement to the president was shown to tbe minister. He read it fully and declined to make any formal state ment He was evidently quits anaoyed, said that any information as to bis com' muuications with tbe stats department Should be sought there; that it seamed to be the news-distributing centra Lord Sack ville was much averse to discussing the sub ject For a long time he refused to be inter viewed, although tbe legation was be sieged by correspondent of all the prm eipal papers in tho country. He finally admitted one or two correspondent and con sented to answer one or two questions. He said be had read Secretary Bayard letter to the preaideot, and was familiar with ita con tents. He disagreed with the secretary in his conclusions, especially regarding the ob ligations of American citizens of English birth. Tbe aotion of the government was arbitrary and tbe argument of the secretary illogical. A response by tbe boms govern ment to the demand of the United States would come by mail, and it bad not bad opportunity to cross the water. Further than this. Lord Sackville refused to comment onjtiis.actionjf tee government . ... St Secretary Bayard said Last evening that he thought his letter to the president was spe cifier, and it contained all b knew about the matter. No demand bad been marie for Lord SackviuVs recall, but the emergency was one that demanded immediate action. He had main in ttaia country, but he would be treated with every courtesy. Senator Morgan, who has been tbe staunch friend of the administration throughout this controversy, said that tho action of the pres ident was what tbe people had a right to ex pect of him. The fault of Lord sackville was the more pronounc-d, because he had been a rnernter of tbe commission which ne gotiated the fisheries treaty. .Certainly, Mr. Morgan said, Lord Sackville would not ques tion the earnestness and sincerity of the president now in resenting an indignity. Neither Lord Sackville nor Secretary Bay ard would furnish a copy of tbe secretary's letter to Lord Haclmlle for publication. A prominent official of the stats depart ment said to a representative of the United States that if diplomatic precedents were followed, tbe British minister would forward tbe president' notification to his home gov ernment, and that in due course be would re ceive leave of absence for an indefinite period. No further action would be taken by this government, whether tbe minister continued to live in W aabtngton City or not. Tbe old-time custom of twenty-four hours notice to quit the country has been aban doned. Tbe records of the state department show that Ljrd Sackville's case is quite analogous to that of Kir John Cramptou, tbe represen tative of England at Washington in 1856V He violated tbe international law of neu trality by seeking recruits for the British army in tbe Crimea. The facts were laid before the British government, and Sir John notified that bis conduct was displeasing to the United States. His withdrawal ensued. BLAINE DECLINES TO TALK. How the Prvsidem'a Action la Viewed in the Eastern Metropolis. Nkw York, Oct 31. Mr. Blaine arrived from Albany last night. He was besieged bv reporters, but no expression of bis views upon the president's action in tbe Sackville matter could be obtained, w aiKer blame said it had taken the president a long time act. His father, Mr. Blaine, would, prob- bly refer to the subject in bis next speech. Governor Hdl spent a qntet day at tbe Hoffman bouse. He and ail the other promi nent Democrats interviewed on the subject expressed delight at President Cleveland's action. The comments of tbe Republicans were not so favorable, a bey old not gener- Hy find fault with the dismissal of Lord Sackville, but questioned the president's motives and thought he might have acted sooner. Doesn't Propose to Give It Away. Washinotos Citv, Oct xi. In response to an inquiry yesterday as to whether the president contemplated the is-me of a procla mation declaring retaliation against Cauada, Assistant Secretary Rivea, of toe Depart ment of state, replied that it would be obviously improper for the department to announce in advance of action, its inten tion in tbe matter. Six More Election Crooks Captured. New York, Oct. 3L Six men living in lodging houses in Park row and vicinity, in this city, were arrested last night for illegal registration in Uravesend, Kings county. They made a statement that they auda num ber of others were hired to register there by Morits and Aaron Hirtzberg, saloonkeepers in this city, who, they said, were acting tn the interest of John H. McKane, chief of police at Coney island, and commonly known Boss McKaoe, ibe men also registered in this city, i'be men understood that Mc- Kane's objact in coloniiiog voters was to se cure bis own continued supremacy in Graves- end politics. Bra-Workers in Session. New York, Oct 31. Fifty delegates from as manv local assemblies of bras-workers from twenty-five cities began a two days' session yesterday at Military ball, 103 Bow ery, to consider a proposition to send a com mittee to the general executive board or tbe Knights of Labor in Philadelphia and make peremptory demand fur a charter, so that they can organize their craft as a national trade district assembly of tbe order, fc.

An assemblage of tf.OOO people greeted Secretary of the In terior y . F. ilas, when be entered the De troit rink last night and his splendid oratory aroused his hearers to a high pitch of en thusiasm. His efforts were principally di rected toward rhetorical effect. He began by setting forth the injustice which he claim ed the tariff works to tbe laborer by the in crease it creates in tbe cost of the necessar ies of life, and demanded that tbe country be given free raw material. He scoffed at tbe Cobden club, British gold bugaboo. and said he didn't believe that .Irishmen, who have been oppressed by England, favor the continuance of commercial slavery tbe country of their adoption, because of that senseless cry. He earnestly defended the administration, asserting that despite tbe closest scrutiny by its enemies not a dark spot had be?n found. The affairs of tbe government bad bsso conducted econ omically and honestly, and its opponents were be fried at every turn. He closed with brilliant peroration predicting Democratic success on Nov, 6, and was loudly cheered. THE LATEST CAMPAIGN BOMB. Charges Against Morton's Loyalty, Which He Kmphatically Denies, New York, Oct 31- Tbe Democratic na tional committee has given out the statement of a Washington correspondent to the effect that he is informed tha. Hon. Levi P. Morton while posing as a loyal man in this city during tbe rebellion was constantly engaged In shipping dry goods from New York to Nassau, New Providence, one of tbe Baha.na islands, and then re-sbipping them to south ern ports by blockade runners. Mr. Morton when interrogated yesterday as to tbe above allegation, said: "The state ment is absolutely false, and without tbe slightest foundation. The statement that there are records in existence proving the allegation is also false. Wanted It to Decide a Bet Washington Cnr, Oct SI.

Yesterday was a big day to the Democracts of Wheel ing and w est Virginia, eastern umo ana western Penney ivania. rme weainer fur nished the opportunity for a splendid day light parade and one at night equally as creditable in size and make-up. There were probably 50,000 peop e on the streets while tbe parade wes moving and between 5.000 and 6.000 in line. The column was pro ceeded by the Young Men's Democratic club, with Judge Thurman immediately behind in an open baronche drawn by four horses. Along the entire line of march Judge ibur- man was received with prolonged and hearty cheers. He rode the entire distance with un covered bflad, and at frequent intervals called out to old acquaintances whom he rec ognized in the vast crowd. The parade was reviewed at the south end of the city by Judge Thurman, after which it broke up and the people distributed themselves around to the various points where speeches were made during the afternoon. Sbortly after supper Judge Thurman was driven in a carriage from the hotel to the rink, where 8,000 enthusiastic Democrats awaited bis coming. He spoke for nearly an hour and was frequently and heartily ap plauded. Mr. Thur.nan began his speech with a brief review of the political history of West Virginia. He congratulated himself on having disappointed his political oppo nents who "ad expressed great solicitude lor his general health, and said that notwith standinir their assertions tnat be was a de crepit old man, with one foot in the grave, he had kept every appointment in the cam paign so far save one, and was to-day the better for it Mr. Thurman then discussed tbe Mills bill at some length and proceeded to correct what he termed "a few gross er rors of our political enemies." There was nothing in this great manufacturing city, he said, that would not be amply protected un der the provisions of tbe Mills bill it it were to become a law. He did not want to be understood as wjsh ing to create feeling or ill-will between the manufacturers and the laboring men of Wheeling, or anywhere else, but he would say that the men who made tbe wealth of this country were entitled to a fair reward for their labor. Mr. Thurman then reviewed the action of the b uiws and senate and the president on the Chinese question, tbe tariff bills, the fisheries treaty, aud other legislation, and referred also to the Murchigon-v est correspondence. NEW YORK THE BATTLE GROUND. Blaine Hays the Post of Responsibility Is the Empire State. Albany, N. Y., Oct SI. Mr. Blaine ad dressed an immeuse meeting at the fair ground midway between this city and Troy yesterday afternoon. He was pale and evi dently not recovered from his re cent illness, but spoke distinctly and vitjorouslv. He said at the start that he was bardlv well enough to address an audience, but could not resist the temptation to, at any rate, come in person, if only to make bis own excuses. He then urged his hearers to remember that the pmt of honor and sponsibility was in tbe Empire state and to go to tbe pohs i ursday next, rain or shine whatever the weather was. j Taking up tbe tnaifl argument, he said an ! editorial from Tne London Pest, an influ ential British paper, would be as good an ar gument as could te used for protection, and be a'-ked Mr. Tenney, of Brooklyn, to read the same. The article in brief antagonized the arguments of free traders that protection hut out a country from successful competi tion for foreign trade, and said that all free trade principles wer.1 negatived by the ex perience of business men. In proof of this the article went on to say that Eng lish manufacturers were undersold in their own country, in Russia, and New Zealand by American man ufacturers; that Yale locus were sold right in tbe heart of the English lock manu facturing districts cheiper than the domestic article, nnd locomotives of American m-tke were sold in New Zealand cheaper than the English make. Except iu made-up clothing, said the editor, "there is not a sin gle manufactured article produ -ed in the tnitcd States, from carpet to cotton, from locomotives to steel axes, from agricultural implements to cutlery and "Yankee notions, as many little domestic appliances are called, which is not as cheap or even cheaper there than in this country." Mr. Blaine then proceeded and said there was not an article in the United Suite that was not cheaper to day than when protec tion was applied to it, aud repeated his for mer statement that the question was one for the wage-earner, and not for capital. He then referred to Lord Saekville's letter, say ing that the administration was trying to get the British government to recall the min ister, and that neither Mr. Cleveland nor Secretary Bayard would dare to send Lord Sackville home. Tlie way to resent the British minis: ers interference in our affairs was to vote for Harrison and Morton. He closed by eulogizing Gen, Harrison and referring to his ancestry in much the same terms as in bis speech at Newark. The speech was applanded to the echo and the applause was prolonzed at the close. Mr. Blaine re turned to New York last night POMONA IS AMBITIOUS. Another Letter from That Noted Plane, Bat Not Another IVest. New Yona, Oct. 3.. The Voice (Prohibi tion orgsn) publishes a letter from "John L. Hoover, dated Pomona, Cat., Aug. Us, ad dressed to C. B. Fisk, Prohibition candidate for president, stating that the vote in Cali forma will be close; that Harrison is likely to carry the state, unless some of the Prohi bitionists change their votes, and asking which it is preferable to beat Harrison or Cleveland. Tbe writer professes to think that Harrison should he defeated, and that Prohibitionists ought to vote secretly for Cleveland. Oen. Fisk did not fall into tbe trap. He referred the letter to Chairman Dickie, of tbe Prohibition national committee, who re plied that there was but one course for Pro hibitionists to pursue, namely, to vote their own ticket, regardless of who might be de feated or elected.

A Heavy Bond Issue That's Not Worth a Cent. fOUR MILLIONS OF BAB PAPER Issued Contrary to Law, and a Ban on the Treasury Anticipated An Appeal To TJnole Sam to Send Help to tha lee Hound Whaler Likely to be Unavailing A Section oi Kansas In Great Need of Assistance. Items of Interest Cincinnati, O.. Oct 8L A thunderclap of terrific sound in the shape of a letter from ex Governor Hoadiy in New York city struck the city oomotroller's office yesterday morning, declaring that the entire hvuie of bonds, nearly $4,000,000, under the $2,000, 000 actof 1885 is invalid and not worth the paper on which it is printed. It appears that two or three weeks ago S. A. Keen & Co., of New York was awarded a large amount of bonds for improvements of west end streets. The bonds were forwarded. Not hearing from tbem promptly tbe comp troller made inquiries and received in return a letter from Mr. Hoadiy, as attorney for the firm, asking if the bonds had been issued under tbe 000, 000 act Tbe comptroller replied that such was tht case and that nearly $4,000,000 worth bad been issued, including city and property owners' share, and were now in the bands of outsiders. Tne letter reviews the la w passed while Hoadiy was governor, declares there is no law for the issue of more than $2,000,000, and declines to accept the bonds for Keen & Co. It is expected there will be at once a rush to present these bonds. There is no money to meet them and an alarming state affairs is anticipated, THOSE ICE-BOUND WHALERS. The Government Asked for Help, Bat Has No Ship Available. Washington City, Oct 31. Acting Sec retary Thompson, of the treasury depart ment, yesterday received a dispatch from Senator Hearst Congressman Morrow, and other prominent citizens of San Francisco, calling his attention to the condition of the thirteen whalers and their crew of perhaps tOO men, reported to be ice-bound in the Arctic ocean, near Herald island, and ask ing the department to send the revenue cut ter Bear to their assistance. Secretary Thompson submitted the matter to the president, who at ones di rected the navy department to send a vessel to their relief. Unfortunate ly the Bear is out of commission and can not be sent and the Thetis, the only vessel avail able on tbe Pacific coast is now cruising in tbe vicinity of Sitka, and it may be several weeks or too late in the season to start a ves sel for the Arctic regions before word can be gotten to the Thetis. Altogether the progftects sm not encouraging for render ing aid to the uniortunate whalers. DESTITUTION IN KANSAS. Danger of Starvation Owing to Failure of the Crop. Washington City. Oct 31. N. M.
