ltepnblieaa Political Potponrt.
New York, June 18. Conkliugnud
Piatt are at present at the Fifth Av
.utie Hotel. The two ex-Senators re
ceive few cal era. Conkling was
found iu Ins rooms but was extremely
reticent about speaking on the sub
ject of the Senatorial coulcst. Ho ob
served that the political in erests of
the State were iu such a coudition of
chaos at preseutthai.it would be im
prudent for him to speak on any sub
ject aud especially one so intimately
connected with the honor of those
who are concerned in the bribery in
vestigation. Conkling said that" any
mig t
bring about the climax
which lias been so earues ly desired
aud so eagerly sought for." General
Graut refuses to converse on politics
aud declares that his presence iu the
city is due to the waut oi rent which
he is hopeful of having satisfied iu
the metropolis and at Long Brunch.
The General will, in all probability
leave for the seashore about the mid
dle of next week.
The News says that Ex-Senators
Conkling and Piatt aud General
Graut met iu the'r rooms at the Fifth
Avenne Hotel this forenoon and were
in consultation for one hour. Mes
sengers were then sent out for Vice
President Arthur, John W. Smith,
Seuator Jones and a few others, in
cluding several loca! politicians, who
were also called upon. The consulta
tions did not last long. Piatt then
departed for his down town office aud
the others scattered, Conkling re
maining with Grant.
It was reported that some con
sideration was given to the question
of whether it would be advisable for
Grant to go to Albany, aud it was
concluded that it would not be help
ful to Conkling. Another point
which is to be further considered to
night and to-morrow is the possibili
ty that a compromise will have to be
made in order to save one stalwart
Seuator and a person upon whom the
compromise must fall.
Conkling said he would not go
back to Washington unless Piatt went
with him. His friends urged him not
to make this an irrevokable decision,
but he said he should adhere to it.
Cornell's name was considered in
caie a compromise should be necessa
ry, but Arthur strongly objected.
The only name that could rind a
united support was that of Grant.
He said he did not want the office.
He has a Mexican railroad on his
hands and does not want to enter into
active political life He however con
sented to keep the question under ad
visement. One ot the principal matters to be
considered by tho stalwart leaders to
day and to-morrow is the preparation
of testimony for the investigating
committee uext week. Senator Piatt
said to-day that "some startling de
velopment8 might be emected." "I
do not see," said Piatt, "how the mat
ter is going to end. I see no immedi
ate prospect of either an election or
an adjournment. The Depew vote
will break up next week."
Cleveland, O., June 18. -A severe
storm swept over this portion of
wort hero, Uhio last night. Trees
were uprooted, buildings blown
down or unroofed, aud considerable
damage was done by liglttuiug or
water. .Near Vvakemau half of itug
gles Grovo fell by the cvclone and
several orchards more or less were
destroyed. Barus were torn to
pieces aud horses and cattle killed or
injured. Ihe storm track was from
iie halt to a mile in width. It lasted
an hour.
Sal of a oíd Mine.
Denver, June 18. The California
gold mine ot Gilpin county was sold
to Jas. 11. bpaiks by Joseph Stanley
The amount paid is not known but it
is aid to be something 'ike five
hundred thousand dollars. Mr. Sparks
is the representative of Eugluh capí
talists. The property has been Day
ing good dividends and is one of the
best gola minos in the state.
China's TclOff rapny.
New York, June 18. The Herald's
special says : The Chinese Govern
ment recently sent instructions
through their embassy, at Washing
ingtou, to the Chinese Educational
Commissioner, in Uiis city, to estab
lish a depariraeut'of telegraphy aud
opcra'ious will be commenced uext
week. At present there is no tele
graphic communications in the
Chinese Empire except between a few
of the larger places on the coast. It i
understood that the communication
is solely in English or other tongues
than Chinese and that uo system has
yet been devised by which the Chinese
can commuuicalo by wire iu their
own language. The project, as re
ported here, contemplates the estab
lishmeut of a govermeutal system to
extend to all of the empire with oper
ators who will be thoroughly iu
struced alike in theory, practical
operation and electric telegraphy. It
will be uecessaiy to prepare a system
of telegraphic sigus aud symbols
which shall indicate the Chinese char
ters. It is proposed to have the
siudents here In learniug ihe art to
use the ordinary system of this
country, and as they are well ac
quaiuted with English thev could in
i heir country either telegraph iu En
glish aud transíale in Chinese or use
the proposed Chinese telegraphic
symbols. The students selected lor
t'lie telegraphic class are those who
are most advanced in their studies in
tliis country and who are shortly to
return to China. G. B. Hubbell, who
has recently resigned the portion of
Hartford manager ot lue Western
Union Convauy has beeu engaged as
Washington Cily Intelligence.
Washington, June 18 It is said at
the War Department that unless cas
ualties iu the army during the next
academic year are greater than thev
have been ounugthe one just pausen
not. more thau one-fourth of about
143 in the next class to graduate can
be commissioned. The rest will re
turn to civil pursuits. Existing va
cancies to b1? filled by the class just
graduated are thirty- iiree, leaving
twenty additional second lieu enauts
who will bo assigned to vacancies as
fastas they occur. - The probability
is that during the year the vacancies
will nt be more thau thirteen iu ex
cess of the number to be provided for
Iu the class uow awaiting assign
ments. Ihe Adjutant-ueneral to-day
issued a circular covering the law
to be hereafter obecrved. Under the
laws cited appointments to fill vacan
cies of the gradeof srcohd lieutenants
iu tfie army are made first from the
graduating class of each year at the
military academy, Recoud, fróm meri
torious non-commissioned officers of
the army, third from the regular
graduates ot the military academy
honorably discharged Irom service,
and fourth from ciyil life, the firs
three classes being moro than sufli-
cieut to fill vacancies occurring iu
the army from year to year.
Historical Iteeearches.
New York, Juno 18. A corres
pondent of the Boston Herald, writ
ing from Ft. Wingate, N. M., de
scribes in enthusiastic language the
discoveries made by F. II. Cushing,
who was sent out by the Smithsou-
iau Institute two years ago to investi
gate the Pueblos m New Mexico, the
history and customs ot the natives.
Cushing, who has made Z'ini the last
of the Indian pueblos the &ea of his
researches is said to have acquired
great influence and a prominent po
sition among the people so that every
facility for exploration aud study has
been afforded him, even lo the dis
closure of fetes which religious super
stition has jealously guarded. He
has mastered the languages and mys
teries of a complicated religious sys
tem and is said to be now in a posi
tion to overthrow any hitherto ac
cepted beliefs regarding the Aztecs
and even the most established tradi
tions concerning Montezuma.

its own merits. McKeevitt, he said

be proved. An analytical chemist
