Remarkable Achievement of graph Companies—How the I the Tele, ewa Was Given to the Country. Convention Echoes. WILL THBY BOLT? Ohicago, June 9.—a rutaor was going the rounds Saturday that tho Independent Republicans, dissatisfied with the nom- ination of Blaine for the Presidency, and feeling that his election would be a real detriment to the country, had decided to call a convention at some future date to put In the field an Edmunds- Lincoln ticket. It was found by Investigation that while no such movement had taken defi- nite shape the question had<been asked by the Independents of eaoh other: " Would It be possible for such a plan to be carried out?" Thoodoro Roosevelt, of Now York, was seen Just as he was leaving the Grand Paoiflo to take a train for Dakota. When asked about it, ho said: "I know of no such move- ment. It is true that I have been approached just as you have come to me and usked if we were 'going to try and place Kdmunds and Lincoln in the field. My reply has been, and Is now, th;it uo such proposition has been dis- cussed among us." That Mr. Roosevelt would support such a ticket is certaiu, for he has distinctly sat l that he could, under no consid- erations, support Mr. Blaine. DavM AllurLon, of New York, was sought out. Suiil be: "IT such a plan was on foot I should have heard of it. I am positive that the Mimor is untrue. The movement would hardly originate here just now. On Saturday next we have ^meeting of the New York Independents in that city, and nothiAg will be done until then." Tho New York Arthur people all stated that they wore satisfied and would give Blalne-a hearty support. They said that next to Arthur tbo sucewwful candidate was their choice, and thoy. inlliiltly preferred him to an Independ- ent like Kdmuudsor a dark horse. This was strongly expressed by the delegates from New York City and the western part of tho State. The New York delegation left on a special train Saturday, and the Maine men at the samo hour. The Tennessee, Pennsylvania and many other delegations break up here and go home r.t their leisure. In explaining the causes tor tho nomination of Mr. iiluino those who opposed him say there is no doubt that the wiiole result was consequent on the Inability of the opposition to agree on a candidate. On Thursday night the Arthur and Edmunds men knew that their respective causes were hope- less unless they combined. Tho Edmunds mon would not go to Arthur and thelatter's friends would not go to Edmunds. The Arthur men submitted the name of. G rosham, but Senator Hoar was foremost In opposing him. Do what they would, the Ar ;hur mon could not win over the Edmunds men to the Post- master-General. Then the Edmunds men sub- mitted the name of Hauloy as a man upon whom a combination oauld be formed. But. aB the Ednmuds men would not go to Gre«bam, the Arthur men would not go to Hawloy, and then all hopes of a compromise ended. Tho Arthur men are denouncing the Edmunds men, and the Edmunds men are sweating wildly at the Arthur men, and both are thoroughly dissatisfied. But the general conclusion is that all factions will now sup- port the nomiuee. The Independents returned the denuncia- tions of their ftxiner allies among the Arthur men, claiming that but for their pig-hoaded- ncso Edmunds could have been nominated. Tho Vermont delegates took tho result wkh better grace than any of the others. One of their number said they had b«0u chosen as straight Republic- ana, and whUo Arthur was their sec- ond choice tbey had nothing to say against Blaino. Tho Massachusetts delegation was probably tho most disgruntled, as the reform- ers Ui its ranks had l>een tbo loudest in pro- claiming what they proposod to do. All the Independents would have preferred Oresham for v ice-Presldont, as they thought the selec- tion of Logan was "rubbing it in' pretty roughly. Tbo new National Committee appointed by rhe Convention met at the Grand Pticllio Saturday and temporarily organized, with John W. Mason, of West Virginia, teufporary chairman and Cot George.. W. Hoolier temporary secretary. The committee thon adjourned to meet June 20, at 12 m., at the Fifth Avenue Hot»l, New York City. On motion of Senator Sabin, who held the proxy of M. G. •Norton, a oommifctee, consist- ing of Messrs. Elkins, Chaffee, Laweon, New and Hooker, were appointed to seloct a per- manent headquarters for the committee. Tho committee then adjourned. John A. Martin, of I'-ansas, and Senator Sabin were members of the new committee, but withdrew on ao- oount of a Civil-service restriction. The committee appointed by Chairman Hen- derson to notify Mr. Blaine will meet at the Parker House, Boston, June 20. Thence they will proceed to Mr. Blaine's residence at Au- gusta by special train. a 1 The work of the Associated Press was a marvel of completeness and accuracy. The work was so thoroughly systematized that not a hitch or break occurred anywhere. Twen- ty short-hand and descriptive writers were employed, each of the former in turn taking a speech for a brief period, and at once read- ing to a type-writer, who transferred the speaker's language to manifold. In this way thirteen copies -of the proceedings were" taken simulta- neously. There were six type writers, and so rapidly and efficiently cbd they, work that within thirty minutes after the last word fell from the speaker's lips it was.transcribed and in the hands of the telegraph operators. Re- ports of tho proceedings were furnished to all the city papers with one exception. To every paper in the country was sent a running ao- count of tho proceedings in the day-time, and also a verbatim account of the entire pro- ceedings in the convention day and evening in time for Western and Eastern papers. In addition to this aB the meetings and caucuses were followed and reported for papers out- side of Chicago. With nearly five hundred newspaper correspondents .here, all tele graphing pages of news, besides the increase of private messages, tue telegraph companies baa their bands full. The work performed by tbo Wcstorn Union in particular was enormous. The officers of the company here have comptied a'statement comparing tho number of words of matter sent during the 'convention of 1880 with the number sent dar- ing the past week. It is as follows: 1680. First day....................... Second day................... Third day.......................346,8*4 Foutta day.......................... 1881. 408,241 833,382 482,209 500,006 003,113 1,724,233 These figures represent only the newspaper correspondence which was telegraphed, as it would bo almost impossible to artiveattae extent of other.bustnees. The Western Onion bad eight lines leased to newspapers over whloh alone 276,000 words passed, making the total number of words sent, 2.T50.808. No comparative statementooulii bo obtained from the Baltimore & Ohio Company, as It was.not In existence four years ago. During the four days' session of tho convention Just adjourned they sent £9.576 words. The Bankers and Merchants' Telegraph Company claims to have sent about TOO,000 words, ana ttie Postal Ttftegraph Company 60,000 words. In addition to the above the Pioneer Press, pf8t. Paul, sent 107,000 words ov«r itt specialwire. Tbis would make a total of 2.419,M8 wopds sent to newspapers alone. 'It is the greatest work ever performed by the telegraph service of a single city. The newspaper correspondents generally complimontea the telegraph cob- Santos an the effectiveness of their service. Thelfainedelegation to the National Be- DBbUoan Convention did a graceful, a patriot- ic) and a gallant act in sending from Cleve- land, on their way home from the great gath- ering, the following message: . 1mcretin K. QarfleM—Dear Madams: The Maine Blaine Club, including the dele- Zatm* 1 o the National Republican Convention at CEtewo, the Governor1©* the State, and the Maine members of the United States Hoiim of Representatives, on ear Joyfn' 1 ret urn wne alter the splendid triumph of our beloved statesman, can not pass the city where repose the re- mains ot our martyred President, the cher- ished friend of James G. Blaine, and the loyal companion-inarms of John A. Logan, without sending to you our sympathy and a£ectionate remembrance, knowing that you will rejoioe with us in the result so happily achieved. . bolt1.r3 Ar massachusetts. Boston, June 7.—ThejMassachusetts Reform Club met Saturday, and. after discussion, adopted tho following: "The Massachusetts Reform Club regards the nomlnatlin of Blaine and Logan as a distinct and unqualified repu- diation of all the professions of reform and as an insult to the conscience of the country and that the members of the . club will under no circumstances support them. It was voted that the Independents throughout the coun- try be requested to Join with the club in active and immediate efforts to secure the nomination by the Democratic party of such men as can command the support of the club, and failing such nominations of independent men without distinction of party, a conven- tion be called at tho earliest practical day to nominate candidates in Dull sympathy with the reform sentiment of the country. the califqbhia delegation. Augusta, Mo., June Tne California dele- gation, which is escorting the Maine delega- tion home, will arrive in Boston at nine a. m. to-day, and will reach this oity this evening. A Reception Committee, consisting of four Republicans, four Democrats and four Independents, chosen from among the wealthiest and most influential residents of the city has been chosen, and ex-Governpr Connor will deliver. &n address of welcome. Brass bands and a profession will esoort tho visitors from the train To Mr. Blaine's bouse. In the evening there will be fire-works, and on Tuesday evening a general illumination of the oity in honor of its guests. foreign opinion. London, June 9.—The Times says: "Blaine's nomination will be received with satisfaction. He has not only been the most popular can- didate, but the most conspicuous and re- spected politician in the ranks of tho Republican party, which has done itself honor by the nomination of so well- known and distinguished a mart. If the Democrats could make up their mind to a definite, reasonable free-trade policy they certainly would secure more sympathy on this side of the Atlantic than hitherto. Meantime, we congratulate the republic on the choice of a candidate so eminently suited as Blaine to represent and uphold thedignity of the United States." London, J tine 9.—Under, the heading "A Beaconstleld Beyond the Sea," tho Pall Hall Gazette says: "Blaine's nomination is the most notable event for England since Lincoln's assassination. Wherever Blaino can oust the British from the position they hold on the American continent, be will enaoavor to replace English inflti&ice and trade by American. His menao- ing intimation that he disregarded the Clay- ton-Bulwer treaty Is an evil augury for the future rotations of England and America. His intervention in Peru was most ominous when be declaied that he disliked England to win oommereial triumphs in fields legitimately be- longing to America. England will watch with extreme solicitude the progress of the cam- paign." THE TRA.DE REVIEW. A Distinct Gain Oaring the -Fast Week In the Volume of Trade' Reported from Many j .Cities— Brads tree t'a Record of Failures. New Yobk, May 9.—Telegrams to BradstreeVa from idudiug ciiios throughout the United States indicate that the volume of general trade at a number of centers has shown a noticeable increase. At Phil- adelphia, Boston, Chicago,- St Louis, Kansas City, "Charleston and other Southern cities, a distinct gain in business is reported. This, while not marked, is conspicuous,, as being the first recorded since the check given to general commercial dealings by the curtailment of bank discounts in consequenc&of the stock- speculation panic in Wall street last month. Trade in New York commission dry- goods circles has been quiet, but jobbers have done better thaa in the previous week and fairly well for this season of the year. Prices generally have been well sustained. Provisions are dull. Tobacco 1b steady, but business is only moderate. Sugar is slow of sale and prices are heavy. Wheat has lost interest' The only feature of the week has been a loss of 2.035,883 bushels in the visible supply on land and sea, and the two days' spurt in exports, which has disappeared. Prices sawed up and down. Crop news is quite as favorable as ever. The wool trade situation has con- tinued very quiet and in buyers' favor. The new clip is moving slowly at all points. There were 182 failures in the United States reported during the past week, against 148 in the preceding week, atid 148, 130, and ',82 in the corresponding j weeks of 188H, 1882, and 1881 respectively. About 80 per cent were those of small traders whose capital was less than $5,000. Captured by the Enemy. Cleveland, O., Jane 0.^-The Salvation Army, numbering twenty-four men and women, were arrested Friday evening for dis- turbing the peace by parading the streets singing, shouting, praying and playing musical instruments. They were kept in jail over night, and next morning were ar- raigned in the Police Court Captain Walker and three others were tried joint- ly 'and convicted. Walker, being the leader was fined $15 and costs, and the oth* era $5 each. The remaining twenty de- manded jury trials, and were put under bail.In passing sentence, Judge Hutchins said the Salvation Army has B9^uo a nui- ■ sance, and must be suppressed like any other nuisance. He would impose a light fine as a warning, but If arrested again he would inflict the full penalty of Che law every time. - France and England Come to Terms. Loudon, .June 9.—Granville and Wad- dington have agreed upon the basis of con- ference on Egyptian affairs. The terms of tbo agreement have been imparted to the powers. They affirm the principle of the temporary occupation of Egypt by England, to which no limit Is fixed, and propose an inteniaittonal control by the powers to audit the whole system of the revenue and ex- penses of Egypt England recognizes the sazerain right of the porte throughout Egypt including the Soudan.

Washington, June ft—The adverse re- port made Saturday by the Committee on Civil-Service Beform upon the bills to re- peal the Civil-Service act says the commit- tee has diligently Investigated the workings of the commission appointed to execute the law, and heartily commend it for its intelligent and efficient administra- tion of an important branoh of the execu- tive. The report then sets forth and re- views what is known oas the "spoils" system of appointments, and continues as follows: "Sinoe the organization of the Civil-Service Commission gnat good has been accomplished in many directions, and a better feeling pervades the dominant pub- lio sentiment on the subject of reform in the civil-service, Inspiring tbo hope that at no distant day the benefits of similar laws may extend throughout the eevetal States, and by harmony and houogeneousness of sentiment and actkm moeh of that which now contributes to the bitterness of political contests and the scandal of our free institu- tions shall be forever eliminated and de- stroyed, State and National. Tour commit- tee are entirely satisfied with tlx thorough conscientiousness and Boa-partisan work of the Civil-Servloe Commission, and. are Justified in tbe belief that Its con- tinoanoo will aid to a large degree in eradicating the prevalent evils of the clvtt- service of the Government, remove just complaint, and restore public confidence in the work-performed by these subordinate oifieials, and wo can see no wisdom in tbe proposed repeal of tbe law. Your com- mittee unanimously recommend an adverse report" senator vaib's relations TO his formeb wife. Senator Fair denies most positively that there is any truth in the report that upon the occasion of his recent trip to California ho went with any intention of remarrying tbe wife from whom he was separated a year since A singula* feature of the case, and one not generally known to tho public, is that in addition, to 84,000,000 re- ceived by Mrs. Fair upon that occasion, the Senator voluntarily added a fifth. At the -conclusion, of the legal proceedings, Mrs. Fair found herself utterly at a loss as to how to invest her large fortune, and in her dilemmaapplied for help to her former hus- band. To this appeal he at? once respond- ed, and now—though separated from Mrs. Fair—yet has entire charge of her money affairs, investing her large capital entirely according to his own judgment GOLD AJO> SILVER.
