FiTe hundred kegs of lard were on their way

DOESN'T BELIEVE IN RECIPROCITY.
Thud. Pound, of Wisconsin, Presents
Some Objections Thereto.
Washington CiTV, March The ven
erable politician, Thaddeus C. Pound, of
Wisconsin, who was in this city Thurs
day, created a little breeze in political cir
eles by announcing himself against
Blaine's reciprocity scheme. "The effect
of reciprocity will be very injurious to
Wisconsin and the northwest," he said,
"in almost every branch, of industry, but
particularly to lumber, agriculture, and
raining, which form our principal indus
tries. Our farmers, lumbermen, and
miners would be brought to the level of
Canadian labor by unrestricted competi
tion with rrval industries. They are now
fulljr 25 per cent, better off.
Wonld Be Free Trade With Kngland.
"Some other industries might receive a
temporary stimulus, but Canada would
soon be overrun with European capital
and we would practically be enjoying
free trade with England. The field to
which all are first invited, the South Amer
ican republics, has, through commercial
and financial interchange, nearly bank
rupted England and continental Europe,
as attested by the late panic. The extent
of our markets and the magnitude of our
resources make it seem wiser and more pat
riotic, if we would conserve and develop
our own industries, to give employment
to our millions instead of wasting our
vitality on infautile republics of South
Americau or elsewhere.""
HUMORS OF KANSAS POLITICS.
Ingalls Sti.eriug for the Alliance, While
Peffer Talks Republican.
Washington- City, March 28. There
is aomething ludicrous to the politicians
litre in the apparent transprsition, politi
cally, of those two remarkable Kansas
statesmen, ex-Senator Ingalls and Senator-Elect
Peffer. Ingalls' friends have
b-ren amazed more than once recently at
his remarkable utterances and the con
cessions he has made to his political foes.
It has been feared that the nenator would
make an inglorious tumble into the ranks
f the Farmers' Alliance. But now at
thin time conies Peffer, showing decided
symptoms of becoming a Republican.
nt Rejoicing Over Palmer.
In declining an invitation to the Palmer
jubilee at Springfield, the senator-elect
naid to a friend: "Why should I rejoice
over the election of Palmer? I have no
part or parcel in this Democratic triumph.
I don't want my position politically mis
understood. I shall represent the Farmers'
Alliance on the questions affecting their
immediate interests, but on strictly party
questions I shall vote always with the Re
publicans." Ta4k of an Extra Session.
Washington- Citt, March 28. The pres
ident has again under consideration the
question of calling the senate together in
xtia session. Those who are urging him
) take the step do so upon the ground
that the new judges to be appointed ought
to be confirmed before entering upon the
duties of their offices, particularly the
members of the public land court, who
rill be called upon to decide at once ques
tions of great gravity affecting the righ's
of powerful corporations and individuals,
tt is said that the president is not quite
sure that he has the power to appoint
judges during the senate vacation.
Opium Smugglers Arrested.
W ashington City, March 28. Agent
Moore reports to the treasury department
the arrest at Ogdensburgh, N. Y., of Lee
Ping, a Chinese - merchant, and Yen
Woen, a Ctnese student, both from Can
da, for smuggling opium into this conn
iry. Upon Ling ten pounds of opium was

The Trial of Kincaid.
Washington City, March 28. The
prosecution in the Kincaid trial rested

fense had made his statement testimony

Washington City, March 2S. The ap
plication of the state of Ohio for her share
of the direct tax 1,332.02& was yesterday

NOT FOR GOV- DAVIS TO DECIDE.
The Democratic Governor of Rhode
Island Differs With iov. Hill.
Providence, R. L, March 2S Gov.
Bulkeley, of Connecticut, wants the body
of Thomas Garnett Under the seal of
his state and in accordance with all the
official forms of extradition he has made
an official demand of the governor of
Rhode Island for the surrender of Gar
nett, who has been in Rhode Island state
prison three years and prefers to stay there
rather than to go to Connecticut. The
prisoner declines to recognize Bulkeley as
a lawful governor, and he is desirous of
an opportunity to convince Gov. Davis
that requisitions from Bulkeley should be
ignored on the ground that Bulkeley is a
usurper. The requisition arrived yester
day and at once gave rise to the question:
"Would his excellency recognize Bulkeley
as governor?" Considering that Gov.
Hill, of New York, had refused to
acknowledge Bulkeley or bold auy official
intercourse with him, the point was
one of delicacy.
Bulkeley Has the Seal.
To a United Press reporter Governor
Davis said: "It seems to me I have a
clear course. The official document bears
the seals of the state of Connecticut. The
opinion prevails that Mr. Bulkeley is not
the lawful governor, but who is to decide?
My personal opinion is that Morris is the
lawful governor, and if his signature
with the official seal were attached to
these papers. I should not hesitate to
surrender Garnett. As Bulkeley is in
possession of the seals, Bulkeley is the
governor de facto, and I do not fi-'el that I
can properly decline to recognize him as
the executive; so I have made up my
mind to recognize ihi validity of the pa
pers. I am now sending the requisition
papers to the attorney general to see if
they are all right."
