that the bill would be rushed through the senate before Christmas The only hope of defeating it, thoj behoved, was to show up the bill in its every feature to the country, which would set the

The Polk Livingston Macune matter has come to a head, and is today tho subject of investigation by a committee composed of the delegates from North Caroana and Georgia, who are trying to clear up the differences between Polk on the one hand and Livingston and Macune on. the other There has been bad feeling between the factions ever since Colonel Polk wrote the letter v, hich Mr Norwood used against Pat Cal- honn To that letter, coining from the preai dent of the national alliance, Colonel lavmg- ston attributes the defeat of the alliance in the senatorial contest But that letter is not the only COSUE belli A TELFGItAM IV QUESTION Abont a week tttero appeared in the St Louis Globo Democrat a long despatch, oated Atlanta and headed "An Alliance Scandal The statement was made that had been paid for the influence of alliance newspapers, state and national, in bonalf of a prom- inent railioad attorney, who u aa a candidate for the United States senate ia Georjpa This was a terrible attack on Calhoun, Livingston and Macune Since that dispatch TA-JS brought to the notice of interested parties they have been after its auLlior 2sou they are about to take his scalp The dispatch was traced to "Washing ton from which place it uas sent Tins morning it was thought that Mr Bitten house, President Polk s private secretary, was the author, but further mvesti gatiou shows that he did not send the dis- patch though it is alleged that he saw it be- fore it went off A member of. the committee is clear that Colonel Polk had nothing to do with the dispatch, and he quotes Colonel Folk as saying that ho would discharge Kit teahouse if he should be proven the author Kittonbouse is the same gentleman ac- quired considerate notoriety not long ago by saying to The Washington Post, in an interview that Blame might bo the choice of the alliance in 18W2 The fact thai this utterance of a sub- ordinate credited [to the alliance has caused no little indignation The committee- men thought the lociticn of the offense at the door of a subordinate would relax tho tension between the two factions, and bring about a better understanding A western leader thought the same He said that if the recon dilation came about, Polk would be re-elected, bat if the breach widened, tho alliance could not afford to take a president from either fac- tion CLOVER WILL ACCEPT In tins state of Vice P-esidont Clover, of Kansas, has been much talked about, but he assured me this afternoon that he would not allow his. name to bo used as he thought PoZV was the man for president The Georgia and INorth Carolina, delegation1? arc trying hard to brmi? about a reconciliation If they do not succeed, the whole affair will come up in the and in that event there is no telling how wide the breach will grow curious feature of the case m the effect uhich the election of General Gordon had on the western alliance-men One of the Kan- sas delegation, a congressman elect, said to me that thev expected to retire Ingalls, and ex- pected Georgia to retire Gordon Vow that Gordon is elected, they begin to think they might as well send back Irgalls Another srory current here, is that Ingaha is at the head of a farmers' land loan company and has the property of many of the Kansas legislators in liis ciutches, THE LATEST BLMORS It is rumored that a hght will be made on Dr Macune for his support of the Conger lard bill, his part in the Georgia senatorial race, and the use of railroad passes and some other matters, but the appearance of things tonight is that the alhancemen arc disposed to discountenance factional fights and bring about harmony The North Carolina and Georgia delegates have been laboring to bring about a better understanding between Polk on the one hand and Macune and Livingston on the other A member of the Georgia de ega- tion said he thought better understanding be reached Colonel Polk remarked to a newspaper man that be had no feeling against anyone and no charges to prefer Macune speaking of the alleged charges which were to be brought against him, said "No one would dare bring charges of this kind against me Such a cou-se vould resn t on y in the defeat and humiliation of I ringing them, ud in the arpooure nf treir purposes I am willing to bai a light tamed on al! tny official j mad upon m j policy well.
