It 30. 1869.
yibn of Judge Williams, demo-
v Ridgeway, republican, in the
wenth congressional district elec
Vion last week, was a notable victory for
tariff reform. Williams carried every
county In the district, including Saline,
which last November gave Harrison a
majority ot 40. In commenting upon
the result the St. Louis Republic says:
The contest on the democratic side was
made unedr General Palmer's leadership
and in support of the St. Louis platform
demanding a reduction of the tariff taxes
and an economical administration of the
federal government. Under Mr. Harri
son's policy, the republicans may win in
Kansas, where, as in the special election
in the Fourth district, they have 15.000
plurality and no opposition, but in states
like Illinois, where intelligence is gen
erally diffused and where the peo
ple examine closely the policy and of
ficial acts of their servants in public
office, the Harrison policy of high
taxes, extravagance and spoils bossism is
seriously weakening the republican par
ty. Since March 4 the republican prty
has not gained ground anywhere, and in
the west the elections held during the
spring have been generally favorable to
the party of low taxes, economical gov
eminent and opposition to federal inter
ference in state aflnirs through the spoils
system or otherwise. Mr. Harrison's
declared intention of increasing expendi
ture. Tanner's riot with the surplus and
Clarkson's indecencies with the post
offices have not commended the adminis
tration to the confidence of the people.

ent to the Charge.
Chicago, May 30. There was a prolonged
conference yesterday afternoon at the rooms
of States Attorney Longenecker, between
that official and Byron L. Smith, receiver of
the Traders' bank, which suspended some
months ago; Bai iffs Mortimer and Scanlan,
and Patrick Cavanaugh, the two latter being
among the closest friends of Ir. P. H. Cro
nin. The objoct of the conference was to lay
before the states attorney the alleged facts
relating to an individual account with the
defunct bank, which, it is believed by Cro
nin's friends, has an importaut bearing on
A Request to Seise the Books.
At the outset a formal request was made
of the states attorney to seize the hooks of the
bank forthwith and submit them to the
grand jury. In them it was said the jury
would find ample evidence to bear out Cro
nin's declarations that a certain prominent
Irish-American had been guilty of a huge
embeulement of Nationalist funds when a
member of the governing board of the Clan-na-GaeL
A Demand for League Money.
In support et the request Scanlan made a
long argument. He said that while Alexan
der Sullivan was a member of the "trium
virate'' he went to Paris and demanded of
Patrick Egan, then a fugitive from Ireland
and acting as treasurer of the Irish Land
league, the sum of $10,000 to be used in car
rying out the aims and objects of the physi
cal force men in the United States. The sum
was needed, he said, to furnish certain expe
ditions that had been planned in a meeting of
representative members of tha Clan-na-OaeL
The Demand Refused.
gan, Scanlan went on to say, refused to
pay over the money, and thereupon Sullivan
threatened to disrupt every Irish society in
the United States, adding that a large ele
ment was dissatisfied with the management
of Irish affairs and on the verge of revolt. A
week was consumed in the discussion of the
matter, and finally Esjan proposed that the
counsel of some of bis confreres si... ild be
This was satisfactory to Sullivan and
Sheridan, the famous No. 1 of the Fhrenix
park "removals,' and a leader of the phys

agreed upon. He was summoned to Paris
by telegraph, and after fully considering the
question decided that in order to conciliate
all factions of the Clan-na-Oael in the United
States it would be better for the money to
He Gets the Cash.
Thereupon Egan handed over to Sullivan
$10,000 in rash of the National league funds.
The full amount was brought to Chicago.
Scanlan went on to say that several months
ago, when the Traders' bank went into the
sheriff's hands, he obtained permission to
make a full examination of the books in the
interest of Cronin and other prominent Irish
A Big Sum Missing.
As a result be found that the sum of $82,
000 had been deposited to Sullivan's personal
credit, but he was unable to learn bow it was
so deposited except in a general way. The
whole amount, moreover, bad been drawn
out by means of a check. It was this trans
action to which Dr. Cronin bad called the
attention of the convention held at Philadel
phia, his statements at that time being sup
ported by Sheridan, who had in the mean
time oome to this country and is now in Cal
Cronin Wants an Investigation.
Cronin urged the appointment of a trial
committee, but Sullivan managed to explain
the matter away and it was dropped nntil
last summer, when the conflicting clans met
in this city. Then Cronin renewed the
charges and a committee of six was appoint
ed to investigate.
Conflicting Reports Prepared.
A majority report vindicating Sullivan
and signed by four members, is in existence.
while Cronin bad just before his death com
pleted a minority report in behalf of himself
and his colleague, setting forth that the
charges had been fully proven. Both ot
these reports were intended for the forth
coming convention of the National league.
Scanlan went on to argue that there was
direct connection between these facts and the
Alex Sullivan Serenely Indifferent.
Alexander Sullivan refuses to be inter
viewed by the newspapers just at present.
He is serenely indifferent to the progress of
events in the Cronin investigation, and ap-
peaas to be as busy as the proverbial nailer
in attending to his law business.
Mo Farther Developments.
Outside of this the day was non-productive
of developments, although the small army of
city and private detectives flitted hither and
thither with as much mysterious activity as
ever. It was reported during the afternoon
that Woodruff bad confessed that the ice
man, Sullivan, had hired him to draw the
cart in which the body was taken from the
cottage, but a denial was given by the police
The Accused Are Mum.
Unsuccessful efforts have been made by
Chief Hubbard to induce Detective Cough-
lin and Woodruff to make a clear statement
of their connection with the tragedy. Both
absolutely refused to talk. Willard H.
Smith, who it was alleged had been identi
fled as the man who drove Cronin to his
death, was taken before Coughlin yesterday
who said Smith was emphatically not the
right Smith and the latter is at liberty.

THE DAWSON MURDER CASE.
A Jury Which the Editor's Friends Be-
gard with Suspicion.
Charleston, 8. C, May 30. The jury to
try T. B. McDow for the murder of F. W,
Dawson, editor of The News and Courier, in
March last, was drawn yesterday. Out of
thirty-six in the panel fourteen are negroes,
a proportion of negroes unprecedented since
1878, when the whites obtained control of the
state government. Some of the friends of
the murdered man charge that the jury-box
has been tampered with in the interest of the
murderer. The average proportion of
KToes on juries since 1870 has been from
four to six in each panel.
An Offensive Intimation.
It is known here that shortly before Dawson
was slain he had incurred the enmity
most of the colored preachers. In an ed
itorial article written by him he urged the
governor to pardon the . negroes in Pickens
county, under sentence of death for lynching
a white man who had raped a negro girL It
was intimated in the article that while vir
tue was not held as high among colored
women as among white women the prin
ciple was the same, and the chastity of col-
or 1 women should be guarded as jealously
ag ainst ruffians as if their skins were white.
A Negro Boycott on Dawson,
Soon after the publication of this article
tb 3 negro preachers called a meeting and de
cided to boycott Dawson and his paper.
Only three of the leading colored ministers
re fused to join in the boycott. The others de
nounced bim and his paper in the pulpit and
withdrew their church notices from its ad
vertising columns. Hence the presence of
su ita an unusual number of negroes in the
ju ry to try this case looks to Dawson's friends
lit e an organized effort to acquit McDow.

who bad been sent by the president to repre
sent bun. Uen. Shields was enthusiastically
greeted when he arose to speak.
Harrison's Southern Policy.
In the course of his speech Gen. Shields re
ferred to the policy of the administration re
garding the south as follows:
My mission is not to indicate a policy nor to
discuss partisan po tties. Much has been
written about a southern policy of this admin
istration. The president has shown a remark
able ability to convey to the people his views
in his own way and at the proper time, and 1
you may be sure that this administration will
be broad enough to embrace the whole conn
try and will conserve the interests of the south
as well as the north, and that both he and
his cabinet take the greatest interest in the
advancement of your material interests and
Mr. Shields said that the best evidence that
the president felt no partisan hostility to the
southern people was found in toe fact that
he appointed a representative of a southern
state secretary of the interior.
Republicans Not Enemies of the South.
On the stump and in the press the Repub
licans of the north had been denounced "as
enemies of the south, and these statements
had engendered a feeling of alienation be
tween the sections which was unjust to
both. The Republican party believed the
national government to be supreme; that
issues settled by war could never be re
opened; that the citizen had a right to cast
his ballot and have it counted as cast; that
the children of the country shall receive a
liberal education at public expense, and that
the best interests of the countrv demanded
the enforcement of the American system of
protection to home industries. There was a
deep sympathy with the southern people in
all portions of the north in view of the tre
mendous problems confronting them.
A New Adjustment ot Parties.
Individually, he said, be believed that
these questions would be solved in the near
future by parties reorganising on economic
and industrial lines. He believed that the
material development of the south so rapidly
occurring would furnish the key to unlock
With the development of the inexhaustible
natural resources within nearly all the south
ern states, new issues, new Interests, new
policies, new -iews, wi.l constantly demand
the attention of the business men and of the
young men of the south, and as tliee Ques
tions are wisely considered in the licht of rea
son, and not of prejudice- in the liht ot to
day, and not of yesterday, your intelligence
will bring correct decisions, and your pros
perity will rival In its luxuriance the reckless
prodigality of nature in your hills and val
leys. A Brilliant Future Predicted.
When this country, north and south, forcets
the differences of the past and realizes that
its destiny is before it and not behind It and
rises to the exigencies of the present, accept
ing ine results or tue war in good faith, then
the astounding progress of the first century
of our national existence will pale before the
magnificent grandeur of the next century. In
ine expectation or a realization to some ex
tent of these results we hail the new star
which has arisen in the sonth and extend both
hands to welcome you within the circle of the

Grant, and Garfield catch up the refrain, and
with the added experiunceof 100 years, call the
present generation, not only of the north, but
of the south, the east and the west to bind on
the brow of the American goddess the legend.

kets." Can Produce Iron at Low Cost.
Baltimore, Md., May 30. Speaking of
the manufacture of iron in the south. The
Record quotes a paper prepared by J. T.
Smith, president of the British Iron Trade
association, in which he calls the attention
ot English iron makers to the developments
in the south and says that Abram S. Hewitt,
of New York, told him that iron can be pro
duced in Alabama for $7.50 a ton. Smith
claims that the economic effect of this iron
development in the south will be much more
seriously felt in the eastern states than in
Moonshiners and Counterfeiters Captured.
Chicago, May 30. United States secret

The Time-Lock Suspended the Bank.
Sharon, Pa., May 30. The First Na
tional bank here, the largest institution of
the kind in Mercer county, was forced to

ter, a Salvation Army captain, against the

THE CHARGE AGAINST TUCKER.
It Seems to Have Been a Flimsy One
Gen. Boyntom's Inflnence.
.Washington Citt, May SO. The Post,
commenting on the appointment of the Hay
tien commission, says: Mr. Tucker says that
he was offered the place by Secretary Blaine
a week ago and accepted it He did not care
for the place, and would not have agreed to
go upon the request of any other man than
Mr. Blaine, who is bis frind, and thanked
him for accepting the position. Mr. Tucker
attributes the withdrawal of the appointments
to the influence of Gen. Boyvton with the
president, and thinks Gen. Boynton's desire
to thwart Mr. Blaine has more to do with the
affair than anything else.
That Chary of Conspiracy.
How serious the charge of conspiracy to
assassinate President Lincoln was considered,
although there is no doubt that it was made,
may be inferred from the fact that Gen. Wal
lace, who was on the court which -convicted
Mrs. Surratt, Payne and their accomplices,
when asked about the matter Tuesday bad
entirely forgotten that Mr. Tucker's name
waa ever connected with that plot He also
declared hie perfect satisfaction with Mr. ,
Tucker as a colleague.

between Chicago and St. Paul, amounting
to nearly 35 per cent The reduction is in
tended to meet the cut rates of the Cana
dian Pacific and "Soo" reads. The St Paul

afternoon that it would drop rates, meeting
