'onkliug: and Madden.
Mew York, June 24. The Times' Al
bany special says: An exciting scene
occurred in the Delavan House to
night. Senator Madden met Colliding
in the tipper halls and extended his
hand, which Conkling refused to ac
cept. A bitter war of words followed.
Madden answered in severe terms the
sarcastic language of Conkling. The
trouble aróse because of certain stric
tures by Madden upon Conkling for re
signing, which had been published.
Alter some angry by-plays Conkling,
who was thumping the lloor with his
cane and stroking his gray beard with
his free hand, eved Madden keenly and
then attempted to reprove him for his
criticisms, and particularly for having
said he (Conkling) was here buttonhol
ing members and soliciting their votes.
Senator Madden blurted out in not so
polite as some men. and perhaps spoke
bluntly. "1 go cross lots instead of go
ing round. You don' t suppose 1 meant
you were twisting buttons otf men's
'coats, do vou?" The ex-Senatorlist.cn-
cd, Piatt wilted, and Madden, bold as a
lion, did not wait to be invited, nut
kept on, "You know what words mean.
You came back here seeking vindica
tion. To say you were buttonholing
men here may not have been true, but
you are here seeking vindication. 1
spoke of you in public as a man clear
through. If you think L spoke of you
offensively, it is a great mistake."
"But I would not have said such a thing
of you," protested Conkling, and then
he turned to go. "1 tell you the truth
when I speak," said Senator Madden,
"and that is more than some havedone.
You know yourself that fourteen long
years ago you told me 1 was the only
man who aareu to tell you uie initii
clear through, and I believe it is true
now. The ex.Senator held out his hand
hesitatingly, and Madden, who is not an
unforgiving man, took it, and the Sena
tor bmvea dramatically and joined
Piatt. In spite of the efforts of the st al
warts and the administration leaders to
keep members here, almost immediate
ly after solemn declarations had been
made on both sides on their determina
tion to stay here and fight the battle
out, an irresistable desire to go home
seems to have seized the Legislature.
Democrats and Bepublieans have been
pairing to-night and going home, and
it looks as though the attendance would
be greatly reduced to-morrow.
Indian .Hatters.
St. Louis, June 24. The Republican's
Little Rock special says: Advices from
the Choctaw and Chickasaw Indian
Nations indicate that affairs there have
reached a crisis. The cavalry at Ft.
Sill have been ordered to report to Unit
ed States Agent Tufft, at Muskegon,
on the 24th to act with the Choctaw mi
litia under Governor Overton in driving
white intruders and their stock from
the nation. Persons not Indians
or intermaried with Indians are classed
as intruders under the law. The Indian
militia are in camp near Scullyville,
thirty strong, and will join UnitedStates
troops. The greatest terror and dis
tress exists. More than three hundred
families are said to have crossed the
border in the past ten days, having
abandoned their cabins to flames, their
crops to distinction, and their stock on
the ratige. Some whites refuse to leave
claiming they hold a genuine permit
and wiliprotect themselves if force is
used to eject them. Several Texas
stock men who have largo herds of cat
tle in the nation have compromised
with Governor Overton by paying him
$1,500 for grazing their stock until July
15th. An appeal has been sent to
the Secretary of the Interior to reaffirm
the decision of the department made
four yeare ago allowing persons with
permits to remain in the nation without
becoming members or citizens of any
.Mail Matter.
Washington, June 24. The Superin
tendent of Foreign Mails gives notice
that on and after July 1st next the cor
respondence for the United States of
Columbia which has declared its adhe
sion to the Paris convention of the Uni
versal Postal Union will be subject to
the postal charges and treatment appli
cable to correspondence exchanged by
mail with other postal union countries.
Mails for the United States of Columbia
are made up and, dispatched from the
New York and Sail Francisco postónicos
and correspondence for Columbia post
ed at other United States postolliccs
should be forwarded either to New
York or San Francisco as may be most
Garfleld-Urant Hattera.
New York, June 24. The Tribune's
Long Branch special says: President
uarticlu was neartiij received nere ana
any one supposes that this, is a focus of
political news is greatly mistaken. The
newspapers have been trying to make
it so appear but their few lacts have
been diluted with a vast quantity of im
agination and invention. The Presi
dent don't talk politics or see people
who come to make him talk. He re
ceives very few callers and the news of
his disposition to shut himself up to
rest with his family keeps visitors away.
He does not even get earlier informa
tion of ballots at Albany than he finds
in evening papers. He seems to de
light in the opportunity, the first in
years, to smoke, drive, walk and chat
with his family and a few friends, in
a word, to be his own master for a few
days. His health is good and long anx
iety about his wife removed.
Grant has not yet called on the Presi
dent. A good deal of curiosity if felt to
sec whether he will allow his disappoint
ment of the collector of New
York, who did not vote for him at Chi
cago, to keep him from crossing the
street and calling upon the President.
Some personal friends of his say that
he will call before the President takes
his departure. As to the correspond
ence which passed between Grant nnd
Garfield after Robertson's nomination
it may be said on good authority that if
Grant wishes to publish it there will be
no objection on the other side. The
President's letter, which is said to be
very quiet and dignilied in tone, elicit
ed no reply from Grant. It seems to
close effectually the argument. People
who have seen both letters say their pub
lication would produce no Iresh politi
cal sensation. Grant's letter is known
to be quite similar to the one he wrote
at the same time to Senator Jones and
the President's reply is a calm assertion
of his position with regard to the .Rob
ertson appointment, accompanied' with
expressions of personal regard for
Grunt and recognition of his services in
the campaign and surprise that he
should fed agrieved because of the ap
pointment of a single man in New York
who did not belong to the faction which
supported him for the nomination last
year. There is a rumor that Grant is
writing a rejoinder but he has not
spoken of it to those closest to him in
social and political relations.
Stnr Route Kaehet.
New York, June 24. Counsel Cook
said: If General Brady was acquitted
none would rejoice more than 1. In
deed, I may go further, if any should
rejoice more than I it would be the
present United States Attorney-General
and Postmaster-General. They de
sire to vindicate by regular adruinis
tration of justice and to protect its in
terest and maintain in the brightest
and most exalted purpose. They do
not desire the accusation of any one.
So earnestly do they desire it that they
do not even Avisli their presentation to i
the grand jury until all facts are impar
tially presented. The court said it
would bo wrong to instruct the grand
jury in regard to Brady's alleged com
plicity in the frauds when the govern
ment's prepared to produce its proofs
before the grand jury. These news
paper reports complained of arc. of
course, a very great evil and if Gen. Bra
dy has been wrongly accused great
wrong has been done him, and ho has a
remedy in the courts, but I do not think
it is right to force the United States
into an investigation prematurely when
the government is not prepared, and
still more premature in the trial of the
party who is accused by the public of
this evil. Therefore I do not sec proper
to give, the grand jury any more defi
nite charge than I have already given
I will say there will be no diffi
culty in tht future. We will industri
ously prepare the case, .i that when
Your Honor returns in Sc;;. r-iber the
matter wi 11 be before t he gram t j u ry i n
due form.
Xew Dramatic Iroduetiii.
Colorado Springs, Col., June 24. Mr.
A. Kaufman completed arrangements
this evening with Messrs. Stanley
Wood and W. F. Hunt, authors of the
Colorado opera, entitled "Brittle Sil
ver," for its production in this State.
The cast has been selected and the or
chestra has been ordered by telegraph
from Manager Hamlin, of the Grand
Opera House, Chicago, who will bring
the opera out next fall in that city. The
play will be produced in Denver 'tis soon
as full rehearsals have been held. The
fact that Messrs. Kaufman and Pasniore
are to manage the production is enough
to insure its musical and dramatic suc
cess. After .llurderers.

O'lionovan Interviewed.
New York, June 24. The Tribune
had an interview with O'Donovan in
which ho said:
We are carrying on this movement in
England not as American citizens but
as Irishmen. I have a document on
which is a seal biererer than vour head
which debars me from livinc in the
united kingdom of Great Britain. Do
yon suppose that anything will deter
me as an exile from doing all 1 can to
secure for Ireland her rights. England
cannot be moved by argument or
entreaty. What then must lie done?
Wc are not strong enough for open
war so we must strike her unawares un
til she realizes that is to her interest to
be just. You know how I have had lit
tle faith in the Land League movement.
It ia tietirow tirty' greater than it was, in
fact it is less. Within a week there has
been a union of physical foreign organ
izations with a view of making the
movement more aggressive than it has
been before. From this on they will be
more active than they have been hith
erto and it will be seen that instead of
being intimidated by British bluster we
are encouraged to greater exertions.
Recently we have received valuable as
sistance from prominent Irishmen in
this country who . have not heretofore
helped as they have lost faith in Irel
and's relief being accomplished by
peaceful means.
P. R. K. Versos S. P. K. It.
Santa Fe, June 24. The case of the
Texas Pacific Railroad Company vs.
the Southern Pacific Railroad Company
came up before Judge Warren Bristol,
of the United States Supreme Court to
day. The complainants, through their
attorneys, filed n bill which sets forth
that the defendant is a trespasser ami
an enehroacher upon the lands of the
complainant, and that the defendant
hurried on its Avork for the purpose of
preventing the complainant from occu
pying and enjoying its land grant. The
complainant, therefore, asks the court
to award to i tat a just and equitable fig
ure all the lines of railroad, rolling
stock, improvements, etc., in the terri
tory of New Mexico owned and operat
ed by the defendant. The answer of
the defendant sets forth that, the com
plainant has not proceeded with the
construction of its road within the time
proscribed by Congress, and further
more denies that the grant constitutes a
franchise, but avers that the United
States never held any property in this
territory, same as a private proprietor.
Tho defendant expresses a willingness
to pay to the complainant the sum of
$0,000 which it safs is more than the
actual value of the land taken. At the
conclusion of the reading of the bills an
adjournment; was taken until to-morrow
morning at 10 a. m. Both parties are
represented by able counsel and the
greatest interest i manifested in the
The Ti'ibiniiC m French.
New York. June 24. The Tribune, in
speaking of Auditor French says:
Nothing is said officially as yet about
the results of his visit to the Pacific
coast, but while in San Francisco he
saw fit to make a report to the Presi
dent of the Central Pacific Railroad in
which he gave assurance that he should
deem it his duty at an early day to com
municate with the Attorney General of
the United States with a view to dis
continue the proceedings instituted
against their company in the Circuit
Court of the United' States for the
Southern District of New York. This
was a very extraordinary proceeding
and it is reported that the government
is by no means satisfied with French's
course at what ever his conclusions
might be and whatever occasion he may
have found for changing his investiga
tion to the government at first and re
frained from giving assurances to a cor
poration against which the government
had occasion to bring suit tor the en
forcement, of its rights.
