George H Tjouna- beny, who was for ten years cashier of tba New York postofflce and who had boon asked to resign a few days ago, Is a defaulter to the extent of between and When he found that his defalcation had boon discovered he attempted to kill himaalf by shooting himself in the right temple. He il now at his home in TTackensack, N. 8uard, but there are little hopoo of tys recov- ery. Yesterday waa the first day in many years that Lonnsbei ry was not as his desk hi the postofflce. He was notified a few dayi ago by Postmaster Van Cottthat his reslg.ia- tion would be accepted. It was to go into effect next Monday. Richard Van Cott, postmaster's son, was to be his successor. The Defalcation Discovered. No one for a-moment suspected that there was anything wrong with Lounabei i y's ac- counts when his resignation was asked for, but it was understood throughout the ing that the postmaster had good reason! for his action. Lounsbeiry left his desk Thursday evening and failed to appear at the office yesterday. An assistant took place and everything wont well until it came time to deposit the day's receipts for the sale of stamps, etc., in the sub-treasury. Then it was discovered that the cash on hand, which he was in the habit of keeping from day to day, a8U which usually amounted to about or was missing. The Embe-szler Shoots Himself. This fact was communicated to the post, master, and he immediately dispatched Su- perintendent of the Registry Department J. MI Wood to Lonnabeny's residence at TTackensack to occure some explanation from him The explanation that Wood brought baok did not satisfy Mr. Van Cott, and last even- ing he hurriedly dispatched PostofBce In- spector Wheelau to the cashier's house. When the latter arrived at the door of Lonsberry's residence he was met by a man servant who informed him that was very ill, and begged him to go for a physician Thinking it was some to send him away, the inspector forced his way into the house and into room The sight that met his gaze when he en- tered caused biirT to start back and gasp with amusement, there on the bed lay the cashier, with blood trickling from a bpllet wound in the right temple, whfle a revolver was lying on the floor at his feet, He had shot himself at about 9 o'clock in the evening, only a few minutes before the inspector's arrival A Fatal wound. Dr. who had ai rived in the mean- what he cooid for the suicide, but onounced his wound fatal After play-Ing the dying man under giiard by two tonal postoffice inspectors, Mr. w heelaa retm -ied to New York and ftocurAd a won-nnfe to search Lounsbmr's house, under the i pression that some of the stolen money might be secreted there. Besides the cash on hand, Lounsbeiry is supposed to have made away with the con- tents of numerous pay envelopes, which were found empty in safe. The post- office day ends at 12 o'clock. Then money received for the twonty-four hours preced- ing this hour was deposited in the sub- treasury. The money leeeived after IS o'clock was kept in the safe to be deposited the neil day. T-onnsbeiiy was under bonds, and his bondsmen will probably be rolled to make good the defalcation, THE MINERS AMALGAMATE.

A HEAVY BUENOS AYRES FAILURE. An Old Firm Under with Liabili- ties ol NKW YORK, Jan. The news by cable, via London, of failures aggregating 000 in Buenos Ayres, was confirmed yester- day by dispatches received by New York merchants in the South American trade. W. H. T.

The caucus of Democratic members of the houbu lubt night lasted over two hours. Mr. t'urlule ex- plained the principal features of the new code prepared by the Republican members of the committee ou rules. Mr. Carlisle said that the radical and daugerous features of the new code proposed to abolish the house calendar; to revive the morning hour; to make 100 members constitute a quorum; to abolish as motions of privilege those for the taking of a recess or for the adjourn- mcntof the house untilaflied date. Another mid very important innovatiou provided for by the new code, Mr. Carlisle explained, provided for the transaction of business dur- ing the morning hour. By this rule a com- mittee on making a report could demand immediate consideration of the bill on which the report is made, and could continue te have it considered during the morning hour, day after day, until disposed of. No motion to consider another question, except that of auother committee, can under this rule be entertained while tBe bill is undisposed of. All the members agreed that un attempt ou the part of the Republicans to have any of these cases considered before the new code of rules is adopted should be opposed in every possible way, even by filibustering of the most radical character. Dolugs of the Flayers' League. FiusBURU, Jan. The schedule com- mittee of the Players' National league an- nounce that the season will open Monday, April 31, and close Saturday, Uct. 4. Con- cerning this schedule Secretary Bruuuell said. "It was- our desire to give the dates each club met, but Chairman John M. Ward. objected. He said that to do so would be' simply to furnisha the National league an opportunity to discern our weak points, and, as a consequence, derive benefit therefrom We at once saw the wisdom of his idea, aud by unanimous consent concurred iu a resolu- tion to defer its adoption until our meeting, which occurs in Pittsburg March 11. This is the most satisfactory schedule ever pro- duced iu the United States, all of the cities being wired to as regards profitable dates before its adoption." Both Clubs Want Day. LOWELL, Mass., Jan. Frank Day, short stop of last season's Lowell club and now "reserved" by that club, has appealed to President Nick Young for his release from reservation.
