COLUMBUS CONVENTION, Upon Its Action Will Depend the Move- ments of the Miners of WHEELING, W.Va., May KateLifieUl, president of the Ohio Mine Workers' Association, in an address here today, predicted that the convention, to be held at Golnmbus on- May 29, will order a general strike of miners 'in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. A coal famine worse than that of a year ago will.follow if this action is taken. Katehfield has been working among miners of this section for two weeks and bus them thoroughly orRanized. ELKIIOBN, W.

LONDON, May was the usual orowd of people in the Old Bailey courtroom today when Sir Edward Olarke addressed the jury in behalf of Oscar Wilde. Counsel complained of the treatment to which Wilde had been subjected, but paid that the defense had resolved to put him in the witness box again, though "unfit for the ordeal." Wilde was provided with a chair, as he seemed to be utterly broken down. He related how he had been on terms of intimacy with the Marquis of Queeus- berry'a family for years, and entirely denied the charges against him. The lasted over an hour. Wilde, it appeared, was in con- stant communication with Lord Alfred Douglas, who is in Paris. When asked about the famous letters which ware read at the first trial, the defendant said that it was a beautiful way in which au artist would write to a cultured yonng man.

SAN FisANorsoo, May from Tahiti report the mnrriage there of United States Consul Jacob Lamb Doty, of New York, to a hnlf-caste na tivo girl named Manen Tumeo Baural, aged 10. What makes the marriage peculiar is that Doty did not call in a missionary to tie the knot, but was wedded after tho native fashion. Doty, when appointed by President Cleveland, nine years ago, as Consul to tho Society Islands, was the youngest member in the service. He was ward appointed Consul for Tahiti and met the girl, who is now his wife, in a romantic manner. While cruising in a small yacht with a friend, he espied a uative girl trying to biing to lurid an overturned canoe. Doty swam out to help her, and the acquaintance thns ripened into love. The--girl's guardian objected to the marriage because of her youth, but Doty took her to another islaud, where ho went through the native wedding coromonyi The girl has been we'l edu- cated aud speaks three languages. Doty has many influential friends in Washington, where his brother is an Episcopal clergyman. His mother in a close friend of Ambassador Bayard's family. DEUATIS OVEU be decent.

PrrTMttma, Pa., May The Pres- byterian General Assembly decided to- day to raise an anniversary reunion fund of to liquidate debts reported by the various missionary boards of the church. A committee of 25 was ap- pointed to carry the resolution into ef- fect. The standing committee on temper- ance reported through its chairman. The "legislative panacea" was disparag- ed by tho report in contrast with meth- ods of repression and education. A shower of resolutions fell upon the Assembly, ranging all the way from the subject cf non-alcoholic communion wino to an injunction to members of the denomination not to vote in favor of the granting of licenses. The latter was adopted as the view of the Assembly, but on tho former question decided op position was developed. After a long and somewhat disorderly debate, it wus decided that the "unfermeuted fruit of the vino fulfills all conditions of the sue rament of the Lord's supper." Row nt tho Itnb. BOSTON, May 2d last night's SOB- sion of the Common Oonucil, Oounoilmau Crockett objected to an order appropri- ating money for tho oelt-bration of June 17 in Charlestown, on the ground that he had seen men intoxicated and dis- orderly in parades on Bunker Hill Day.

Professor Halo Golnu to Koino.

The school was founded under the patronage of the Archaeological and Philological Societies of America. Professor Hale graduated nt Harvard in 1370. Gen. McAlpIn Euenares 'Quarters for the Clevolaud Convention. CLEVELAND, Ohio, May Gen. E. A. MoAlpin, the candidate for presi- dent of the National Republican League, soon to meet here, has engaged as headquarters six large front rooms at one of the leading hotels here. He is from New York, and is adjutant general of that state's militia. It is reported that there are under- ground influences at work which will land Gen. McAlpin in the president's chnir. One argument used in his favor will be that as the present head of the league, W. W. Tracy, lives in Illinois, his successor should bo an eastern man. Presidential politics may also figure in the election. If the silver men prove to be as strong in the convention as they expect they may throw ihe presidency to a western man. John Godnow, of Minneapolis, is Gen. McAIpin's opponent. He would be the natural favorite of the western men, and he is likely to get the vote of Ohio, be- cause he exerted a strong influence to bring the convention to Cleveland, There are however, that Godnow, may drop out of the race. W. A. Mansfield, of Minneapolis, will op- pose Secretary A. B. Pumphrey for re- election. Amoer's Sou In PORTSMOUTH, Eng., May 24.

CHICAGO, May 24 brick makers have appealed to the Bricklayers' Union for aid in their fight against the bosses, who have refused to pay the union scale. The strike situation now promises to take a peculiar turn. At the bricklayers' meeting tonight it is understood that a resolution will be passed, which practically means a boys oott of all bat union-made brick.

A hot fight was made against Johnston by the re- form element, which is seeking to stop gambling and racing at St. Asaph's and Alexander Island. MANSFIELD, Ohio, May 24. L. Hurter gave his views at great length today on the issues which confront the people in view of tjje recent decision in tho income tax cases. He has a plan for the rai'liVtig of revenue which he thinks will save the financial depart- ment of the government from embar- rassment. "The tax on nil kinds, or nearly all kinds, of tobacco should be increased to where the result would be an increase of revenue from this source of not less than The tax on beer should be increased which would not result iu any decrease in the size of glass or increase in the coat to drinkers. The whisky tax, already higlj, shoald be enlarged enough to add to the revenue from this source about Tea and coffee should be taxed enough to cost the consumer about one mill per cup or a cent for each ten cups, which tax would bring in about in ordinary years. "Here you have an increase in the in- come of the United States of without putting a noticeable burden upon anybody. With this simple legis- lation our deficiency would be trans- ferred into that wholesome surplus of and no calling or industry would suffer nnd no individual citizen would have any just ground for com- plaint. "It is but fair to say that if the Mo- Kinley bill had not placed sugar oil the free list and granted an outrageous bounty to the growers of sugar, far the sake of increasing an already scanda- lously high discriminating tariff taxes, which go into private pockets instead of the public Treasury, we would in the past four years have had more revenue, and instead of an in- creased debt, approximating 000 on June 30. 1895, would have shown about surplus, with a gold reserve of about with no increase of public liabilities. In other words, but for the wretched measure known as the MoKiuley bill Mr. Cleve- land in and canceling instead of selling United States boude. "Mr. Cleveland's course in the sale of bonds was forced upon him, and the skill ond sound sense he bus displayed io the matter are deserving of the high- est praise. "I feel that the party, if any, which boldly declares for free coinage at 1G to 1 would do well to buy a and order a shroud. However, with all the noise and uproar, the net result will, I fear, be a couple of sneaking, dodging platforms, facing both waye, a kind of political trap to catch the vote a-goin' or a-comm'. If either party has Ihe courage and intelligence to adopt a fair, square, unmistakable plank, which will demand a dollar for the working man worth at all times and everywhere 100 cents in gold it will have a walkover in 1896." Friends of Both. Gentlemen Deny Tlint There Is 111 Feelliisr. WASHINGTON, May of Secretary Carlisle and of Senator Black- burn are anxious to modify statements that were given throughout the country in preass dispatches concerning the re- ported attack on the Secretary by the Senator. It seems that, according to the state- ments of their friends, this attack something of a hypothetical case, was stated to Mr. Blackburn that was It the Secretary was coming to Kentucky to attack him, and this caused indignant expressions on the part of Blackburn, who announced what he would do "if" the Secretary carried out such a pro- gram. Speaking of this reported difficulty between the Senator and the Secretary, a friend of the former, who is a promi- nent Kentnckian, said today: "The short telegram which appeared in the press dispatches a few days ago coming from Ky., in which Aged Ex-Secretary of the Treasury Passes Peacefully Away. END OF A GEEAT CAEEEE- it was stated that the Senator had severely denounced Mr. Carlisle, has every one acquainted with the two gentlemen and their relations with each other knew it would prove, a gross exaggeration, if in fact it could be said to have any real foundation at all It simply grew out of a casual conversa- tion, in which, it being suggested that Mr. Carlisle was coming to Kentucky to make war on Mr. Blackburn, the Senator remarked that if Mr. Carlisle was coming to attack him he would make it warm for him. And this has been tortured into a 'denunciation' of the Secretary. "There is really no such personal feeling between the friends of these two distinguished men. The great mass of the friends of each are the mutual friends of Differences of opinion on the financial question have not changed the personal relations of their friends toward these two favorite sons. Indeed, many of the closest friends and greatest admirers .of Mr. Carlisle differ most radically with him on the pending money question. He says himself that he has no more personal interest in the question than any other good citizens, and there is no more reason for enmi- ties on this account between these gen- tlemen or their friends than that two lawyers who opposed each other in a NORTH ATLANTIC SQUADRON.

Always reliable. Admiral Walker Will Probably Talio Command. WASHINGTON, May hag been stated tLat the delay in filling the va- cancy in the command of the North Atlantic station resulting from Admiral Meade's retirement was due to the de- sire of the President to have Cupt. Bob- ley D. Evans made chief of the Bureau of navigation, to succeed Admiral Kam- say, the station for which Oapt. Evans has applied. It is now reported, however, that when the Kiel celebration is over, the New TCgrk, with Copt. Evans in command, will remain on the European station, and that theSan Francisco will be sent home. Meanwhile, if arrangements can be made for the command of the Atlantic station, the assignment will be made without re- gard to the Kiel fleet. Admiral Kam- say wants the command, and Secretary Herbert desires him to remain as chief of the bureau of navigation. The Secretary's wishes may be car- ried out, and .probably will be heeded, in which case it is belieyed that Admiral Walker or Commodore Selfridge, now the ranking commodore, may be given command of the squadron. Admiral Walker has applied for sea dntj. law suit s'hould declare war on each other. "There is without doubt and intense earnestness on the part of the free coin- age meu in Kentucky, as elsewhere, and the political records of the champions are being freely and thoroughly- review- ed. Mr. Carlisle has perhaps earned his greatest reputation by his advocacy ia the courts of doubtful causes. His friends are not now going to become enemies simply because he is defend- ing what they consider a very bad case." OJf SUSPICION'- Sudden and Mlsterloas Deatii of a San Francisco Woman. SAN FRANCISCO, May W. Win- throp, assistant superintendent of Lau- rel Hill cemetery, was arrested early this morning in connection with the mysterous death of Mrs. Jennie Mut- thews last Saturday. Mrs. Matthews died very suddenly while decorating the grave of her child. Her little daughter by whom she was accompanied, said Withrcp gave her mother a pill, but he denied this statement. A chemical analysis of the woman's stomach how- ever, developed the fact that it con- tained strychnine. Evidence is said to have been found now that Mrs. Matthews had her life in sured for a faw days before her death, and that Winthop is authorized in the policy to hold the money in trust for her daughter Minnie, a child five years old. Mrs. Matthews' husband did not know his wife had her life in- sured until after her death, and now the policy cannot be found. No charge was made against Winthrop, but he was locked up, and will be held, pending a further investigation of the case.

Hugh McCullooh, ex-Secretary of the Trea- sury, died early this morning at his country house at floral Hill, Prince Georgb's county, Md. Death was due to lung trouble and old age. Hugh MoCnlloch was born in Kenne- bnnk, Me., on December, 7, 1SOS. He entered Bowdoin College in 1S24, but did not complete the course of study on account of illness. He' taught school for several years and then studied law. In 3833 he went to Fort Wayne. Ind., where he entered a bank, and'in 1835 was elected cashier and treasurer of the Port Wayne branch of the State Bank of Indiana, At the expiration of its charter in 185G he became president of the Bank of Indiana, a post he retained until called here by Salmon P. Chase, then Secretary of the Treasury, to take charge of Comptroller of Currency, a position created by the national bank- ing act. It was he who organized the office and put in operation the vast machinery of the national banking system. His repu- tation for conservatism influenced the managers of large State banks and pro- moted the conversion of the leading credit institutions of the commercial cities into national banks. In 1SG5, Chase having in the meantime been ap- pointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and Wm. P. Fessenden, his suc- cessor, having resigned, Mr. McCuIloch was appointed Secretary of the Treas- ury by President Lincoln. The Government at the time was in great financial distress. It was incurr- ing enormous expenses and the heavy demands pressed upon practically an empty Treasury. Mr. McCulloclrs first and most important duty, therefore, was to ruise by further loans what was needed to pay the large sums due 000 soldiers and sailors, whose cervices the Government could not dispense with. This was successfully accom- plished, and in less than sis mouths from the time of Mr. McCulloch's ap- pointment, all the mstnred obligations of the Government were paid and the actual work of reducing the debt was begun. His next most important work was the conversion of more than 000 of short-time obligations into a funded debt. This he successfully ef- fected also, and in a little more than two years the whole debt of the country was put in satisfactory shape. In his annual reports Mr. McCuIloch advoca- ted a steady reduction of the national debt, the retirement of the legal tenders and a speedy return to specie payments, urging thut a permanent public debt might be dangerous to republican in- stitutions. He believed also that it was not the business of the Government to furnish the people with a paper cur- rency, that it had no power under the Constitution to make its own notes law- ful money, and that the paper cnrrei of the country should be the bank. His views upon the subject ol the debt were sustained by Congress aa during the last Congress his ideas garding the retirement of legal tenders" and the establishment of a system of banks of issue received much attentions. Secretary MoCullooh retired on March 4, 1869. For nine years, from 1871 to 1879, he engaged in banking in London. In October, 1884, on the resignation of Walter Q. Gresham, then Secretary of the Treasury under Arthur, he waa again appointed Secretary of the Treas- ury. He served until the expiration of Arthur's term, being the only man who has twice held the office of Secretary of the Treasury. Since his retirement he has resided here and on his farm in Maryland. In 1888 he published some interesting memoirs, entitled "Men and Measures of Half a Century." During the last few years, notwith- standing his advanced age, he hascontri. bated to magazines and public journals many articles on financial and economic questions. Tramps Killed In a Wreck.
