Hon. V. J. Campbell, chairman of
the republican national committee,
trrived in Washington yesterday
afternoon and went to the white,
house at 2:X, where he was in con
snlationwith the president, Secre
tary Klkins, Commissioner Carter
Secretary Kusk and ex-Senator
Spooner of Wisconsin. At the con
clusion of the conference Chairman
Campbell gave out the following
statement for publication, saying
that he had nothing further to say
with regard to thetiuestion at issue.
This is the statement referred to:
"When I was elected chairman of
the national committee it was with
the distinct understanding that my
business engagements, then pend
ing, might render it impossible for
me to act in that capacity. This
contingency wan fully understood
by the committee and others direct
ly interested. Since the adjourn
ment of the committee, I have been
unable to adjust my affairs so as to
render it practicable for me to act
as chairman; and I, therefore, as I
reserved the right to do, announce
that I will not so act. Under the
authority vested in me by the
national committee, I will probably
announce the executive committee
within the next few days and that
committee will meet at an early
date. At that meeting I will for
mally tender my resignation aud
my successor will be then elected.
My successor will be chosen by the
executive committee as authorized
by a resolution adopted by the
The resolution alluded to was
adopted to meet just such a contin
gency as has arisen. The names
most prominently mentioned last
night in connection with the chair
manship are Coinmisssoner T. II.

uel Fessendeu of New Hampshire
and Mr. Hobart of New Jersey.
ChairmanCanipbell will probably
appoint the executive committee to
day and those whose names follow,
with perhaps one cr two exceptions,
will it is believed, be found upon
the list: J. H. Manley, Maine; Gar
rett Hobart, New Jersey; Stinuel

At a meeting of the directors ami
stockholders of the Beatrice base
ball association, held last night, it
was decided that the club would
be disbanded. This move is the re
sult of the action of the league di
rectors in demanding a $10 guaran
tee from the Beatrice team fur
games played at home nnd the an
nouncement that the Beatrice team
was to get but If'.Ti from the other
cities. The whole transaction was
considered manifestly unfair. Bea
trice, ii was urged, was not respon
sible for Lincoln and Plattsmouth
dropping out, and should not beex
pected to pay a greater guarantee
than the other towns. The players
have been paid in full, ant' a few are
waiting for advance money now on
the way from other cities.

street l-ing too wide for her she danced
up au alley between r,",l and llll Con

but only momentarily. Through it she
went, nnd then another obstacle pre
sented itself, Mrs. Emma A. Poole, who
proved to be no more of a stop to the
heifer's onward progress: than Fort Car
roll would he to a modern man-of-war.
In a moment Mrs. Poolo was knocked
to the ground, and in the kitchen it
went. There some destruction of imp
erty was committed, but Mot enough to
satisfy the heifer.
The dining room was next entered,
where the well known qua lruped-in-a
china-shop scene was re-enacted. The
hallway was then taken in, and a lamp
was knocked down. The heifer wanted
to conquer higher worlds, so she, went
upward into a bedroom. Here, tem

being warm, her heifership went into

a blue coaled soldier, drove the animal
out, and she at once sailed up Hanover

He soon formed an attachment for an

and the two became inseparable. Thus
matters went on for some time, when
the hen, remembering that the usual
season for multiplying and replenishing
her species had arrived, selected a nest
in the poultry house and made known
her intentions in the usual way. She
was at once supplied with the necessary
eggs and commenced business. This, it
was supposed, would end the rather
strange flirtation and Tommy would re

COOPER AND WORDSWORTH.
An Interview nlth the Ard I'urt !
W irs Hi lure Itiii Driilli.
Thomas Cooper, the veteran chartist,
who has received a grant of i'Hl from the
Civil List, had. on one occasion, a very
interesting interview with Wordsworth
at Kydal Mount.. Cooper had been at
Carlisle nnd started on a walk through
the Lake country.
It was on tho third day after leuving
Carlisle that Cooper arrived at Rydal
Lake. He was very anxious to see
Wordsworth and have a talk with him,
but, not knowing the poet and having
no introduction, was rather doubtful as
to what tho nature of his reception might
be. lint, summoning all the courage at
his command, he boldly strode up to the
poet s door and knocked.
In reply to nn inquiry ho was told that
Wordsworth was at home; so he wrote
ou a slip of paper, "Thomas Cooper,
author of 'The Purgatory of Suicides,'
desires to pay his devout regards to
Wordsworth." In a very few minutes
ho was in the presence of the "majestic
old man," and was bowing with deep
and heartfelt homage when Wordsworth
seized his hand and welcomed him with
such a hearty "How do you do? Iain
very happy to sen you," that Cooper says
the tears stood in his eyes for joy.
Nothing struck Cooper so much in
Wordsworth's conversation as his re
mark concerning chartism after the
subject of Cooper's imprisonment had
been touched upon. "You were right,"
Wordsworth said; "1 have always said
the people were right in what they asked;
but you went tho wrong way to get it.
There is nothing unreasonable in your
charter. It is the foolish attempt at
physical force for which many of yon
have lieen blamahle." By and by the
conversation drifted to other subjects.
There was but one occasion, says
Cooper, on which I discerned the feeling
of jealousy in him; it was when I men
tioned Byron. "If there were time," he
said, "I could show yon how Lord
Byron was not so great a jniet as you
think him to lie but never mind that
now. 1 had just lieen classing his own
sonnets and "Childe Harold" together
as tho noblest poetry since "Paradise
Lost," but did not reassert what I said.
"1 am pleased to find," he said, while
talking about Byron, "that you preserve
your muse chaste and free from rank
and corrupt passion. Lord Byron de
gruled jioetry in that respect. Men's
hearts are bad enough. Poetry should
tyfine and purify their natures, not
piake them worse."
Wordsworth's opinion on Tennyson is
interesting. Cooper asked the poet what
his opinion was of the poetry of the day:
"There is little that can lie called high
poetry," Wordsworth said. "Mr. Ten
nyson affords tho richest promise. He
will do great things yet, and ought to
have done great things by this time."
"His sense of music," 1 observed,
"seems more perfect than that of any of
the new race of poets."
"Yes," Wordsworth replied; "the per
ception of harmony lies in the very es
sence of tho loot's nature, and Mr. Ten
nyson gives magnificent proofs that he
is endowed with it."
Wordsworth sjioke of Southey in the
highest terms, and again reverted to
politics. "There will be great changes
on the Continent," he snid, "when the
present king of the French dies, but
not while he lives. Tho different gov
cnnnentH will have to give constitutions
to their people, for knowledge is spread
ing, aud constitutional liberty is sure to
follow." Wordsworth also alluded to
the spread of freedom in England, and
descanted with animation on the growth
of mechanics' and similar institutions.
"The people are sure to have the fran
chise," he said with emphasis, "as knowl
edge increases; but yon will not get all
you seek at once, and you must never
seek it again by physical force," he
added, turning to me with a smile; "it
will onlv make yon longer about it."

Falling from a (ireat Height.
It will bo rememlxred that Mr.
Whymper, who had a severe succession
of falls once in the Alps, without losing
his consciousness, declares emphatically
that as he bounded from one rock to an
other he felt absolutely no pain. The
same thing happens on the battlefield;
the entrance of tho bullet into the body
is not felt, and it is not till he feels tho
blood flowing or a limb paralyzed that
the soldier knows ho is wounded.
Persons who have had several limbs
broken by a fall do not know which limb
is broken till they try to rise. At tho
moment of a fall the whole intellectual
activity is increased to an extraordinary
degree. There is not a trace of anxii ty.
One considers quickly what will happen.
This is by no means the consequence of
"presence of mind," it is rather tho
product of absolute necessity. A soleinu
