sirrived in Washington yesterday
afternoon and went to the white;

sulation with the president, Secre

This is lie statement referred to:
"When I was elected chairman of
the national committee it was with
the distinct understanding that ray
business engagements, then pend
ing, might render it impossible for
me to act in that capacity. This
contingency was fully understood
by the committee and others direct
ly interested. .Since the adjourn
men t 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 meby the
national committee, I will probably

At a meeting of the directors and
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 for
game9 played at home and the an
nouncement that the Beatrice team
was to get but $25 from the other
cities. The whole transaction was
considered manifestly unfair. Bea
trice,- it was urged, was not respon
sible for Lincoln and Plattsmouth
dropping out, aud should not be ex
pected to pay a greater guarantee
than the other towns. The players
have been paid in full, and a few are
waiting for advance money now on
the way from other cities.

A Heifer In u ltathtub.
A number of cattle were landed at
the Weems line wharf yesterday morn
ing. Their driver was James Groueher.
The animals seeming quiet, Groueher
etarted-to drive them without any
ropes. On reaching Conway Btreet a
heifer, which had been moving along
very placidly, became very much ani
mated, and made things very interest
ing for the balance of the herd. The
street being too wide for her she danced
up an alley between 129 and 131 Con
way street. A gate blocked her way,
but only momentarily. Through it she
went, and 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 be to a modern man-of-war.
In a moment Mrs. Poole was knocked
to the ground, and in the kitchen it
went. There some destruction of prop
erty was committed, but not enough to
satisfy the heifer.
The dining room was next entered,
where the well known quadruped-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
porarily, repose was sought on the bed,
but it fell under the animal's weight,
other damage being done during this
occurrence. From here, the weather
being warm, her heifership went into
the bathroom and hopped into the bath
tub. Mrs. Poole then commenced call
ing for help, and, with the assistance of
a blue coated soldier, drove the animal
out, and she at once sailed up Hanover
street and there entered another house,
but did no damage. The driver finally
caught the animal Baltimore Ameri

matters went on for some time, when
the hen, remembering that the usual

in the poultry house and made known
her intentions in the usual wav. 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
turn to his mat on the porch, but not so,

Georgia's Profits from Fruits.
The Georgia fruit crop is a big thing
this year, and everybody is interested in
knowing what the growers will make
out of it. In the peach and grape crops
alone conservative estimates show that
about 500 carloads of peaches and 100
carloads of grapes will leave the 6tate
for foreign markets during the present
season. The estimated receipts for the
peach and grape crops combined are
Reports show that the peaches are
well formed, of good size and perfectly
sound, and this, together with the de
crease in yield from last year, makes
good prices and ready sales an assured
fact. Other important fruit crops will
largely swell the total sales, and lots of
summer money will be put in circula
tion where it will do good. Columbus
A Famous Sculptor of Italy.
Professor Pio Fedi died at the age of
seventy-six. He suffered for several years
from paralysis. He was one of the best
modern sculptors of Italy, an imitator
of Canova and a follower of the Greek
school. Some of his best statues are at
the Loggia del Arcagno, at the Uffizi
and the Old Palace. One of his "Christs"
adorns the upper part of the Scala Santa
at Rome. From every part of Italy
telegrams of sympathy have arrived.
His funeral was very grand. All those

all the notabilities of the town followed
his body; innumerable garlands and

COOPER AND WORDSWORTH.
An Interview with the A(d Poet PVw
Years Ilefore Hl Death.
Thomas Cooper, the veteran chartist,
who has received a grant of 200 from the
Civil List, had, on one occasion, a very
interesting interview with Wordsworth
at Rydal Mount. Cooper had been at
Carlisle and started on a walk through
the Lake country.
It was on the third day after leaving
Carlisle that Cooper arrived at Rydal
Lake. He was very anxious to see
Wordsworth and have a talk witlv him,
but, not knowing the poet and having
no introduction, was rather doubtful as
to what the nature of his reception might
be. But, summoning all the courage at
his command, he boldly strode up to the
poet's door and knocked.
In reply to an inquiry he was told that
Wordsworth was at home; so he wrote
on 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
he 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? I am
very happy to see 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; "I have always said
the people were right in what they asked;
but you went the wrong way to get it.
There is nothing unreasonable in your
charter. It is the foolish attempt at
physical force for which many of you
have been blamable." 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 you how Lord
Byron was not so great a poet as you
think him to be but never mind that
now." I had just been classing his own
sonnets and "Childe Harold" together
as the noblest poetry since "Paradise
Lost,"" but did not reassert what I said.
"I 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
graded poetry in that respect. Men's
hearts are bad enough. Poetry should
refine and purify their natures, not
make 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 be called high
poetry," Wordsworth said. "Mr. Ten
nyson affords the richest promise. He
will do great things yet, and ought to
have done great things by this time."
"His sense of music," I 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 the poet's nature, and Mr. Ten
nyson gives magnificent proofs that he
is endowed with it."
Wordsworth spoke of Southey in the
highest terms, and again reverted to
politics. "There will be great changes
on the Continent," he said, "when the
present king of the French dies, but
not while he lives. The different gov
ernments will have to give constitutions
to their people, for knowledge is spread
ing, and 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 you 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 only make you longer about it."

Falling from a Great Height.
It will be remembered 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 the bullet into the body
is not felt, and it is not till he feels the
blood flowing or a limb paralyzed that
the soldier knows he 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 the
moment of a fall the whole intellectual
activity is increased to an extraordinary
degree. There is not a trace of anxiety.
One considers quickly what will happen.
This is by no means the consequence of
'presence of mind," it is rather the
product of absolute necessity, A solemn
composure takes possession of the vic
tim. Death by fall is a beautiful one.
Great thoughts fill the victim's soul:
