SALT LAKE , April 11. I have not
troubled THE BEE with much of Mor
mon matters of late , so probably afew
items recarding them may not be un
acceptable by way of a change.
Your readers will recollect that a few
mouths ago , I drew attention to the
death of Orson Hyde , one of the sen
ior members of the Council of tha
Apostles. The vacancy in this body
was yesterday filled at the general con
ference ] by the election of Elder Moses
Thatcher , of Logan , to be one of the
twelve apostles. Mr. Thatcher u a
young man of great promise , hand
some in appearance , general in man
ners , and an excellent business man.
Hia connection with the Utah North
ern railroad , as well as position as
his position as President of the
Ztoii Co-operaveMercantilo Institution
has brought him in association with
many of the citizens of Omaha. His
election is favorably regarded by the
church , who esteem the introduction
of young and vigorous blood into the
presiding council cf the church as
iv ry salutary , whilst the Gentiles ,
whiTi.ike any interest in such matters ,
regard the selection &s about as good
a one as could bo made , as they look
upon htm as a liberal-minded man ,
well acquainted with the world and
its ways , and though a thorough
Mormon , nut a fanatic. Mr. Thatcher
nas born in Sangamon county , Illi
nois , in Februii.Vy , 1842 , but has long
t > een ti resTdeaCrtjf tljah. Ecclesias-
blup , he was the presiding elder over
all the churches in Cache valley. He
was a member of the upper house of
the Territorial legislature at its last
session , and financially is sound.
The only noticeable feature of the
general conference at present in ses
sion ( which has been largely devoted
to the reading of financial , statistical
emigration and other reports ) , has
been the discourse of Hon.Geo.Q. Can
non , M. C. , for Utah , on Sunday
afternoon. It naa a brilliant effort
devoted largely to contrasting the ad
vantages of the Mormon system of
marriages with mongamy. Nothing
could be gathered from his remarks as
to what were the intentions of the
leaders of the church with regard to
their future course on the marriage
question ; he also seemed to studiously
avoid any reference to the reported
effort that is being male to obtain the
admission of Utah in the Union.
Many think that the Mormons will be
willing to have certain provisions in
serted into the enabling act regarding
the marriage question. Many
leading statesmen of both
paities are of the opinion
that since the Supreme Court of the
United States has rendered its decis
ion the matter should be withdrawn
from the arena of national political
questions , and in no way can it be so
easily and advantageously accom
plished as by the admission of Utah aa
a sovereign State ; but I must confess
that the Mormons themselves appear
to be taking but little interest in the
mitter , or if they do , they are laying
low to watch developments.
So great has been the drouth and
heat of this spring that the residents
of some well established settlements
thought of removing on masse and en
tirely breaking up their towns The
thermometer at 100 degrees in the
shade and no water in March , was so
unexampled and so threatening that
breaking up seemed to bo their only
safety. But , thank Providence , during
the last 24 hours , copious showers have
fallen on the thirsty laud , .and the
husbandman , the herdsman and the
miner are all correspondingly happy.
"There's millions in it , " as Col. Mul
berry Sellers would say. _
Thoremoval of Chief Justice Sdhaef-
ferj though long desired , by the legal
profession " , when it did come , came
suddenly. We trust the Hon. W.
Corbin , whom President Haye's Kas
nominated for his successor , will be an
improvement on the late incumbent.
To show how peculiar our late chief
justice was , I will mention , that no
sooner did the press dispatches an
nounce his removal than he at once
dismissed both grand and petit jurors
and adjourned his court sine die. If
Mr. Corbin does not accept , it is pos-
Biblc that we may be without a court
for some timoaud with the very many
important suits pending that would be
a calamity to the parties interested if-
to no one eke. WINDSOR ,

A. Mr. Mr. Sneathandseveral Eng
lish ladies and gentlemen visited the
office of the Chief of Police last night
and stated that they had just arrived
on the overland train. At Omaha
they found younjj girl named Anna
Wcichsl r , aged 6 years , who had been
passed to that point by the conductors
on the various trains from Memphis ,

of the little waif was a tag , on

were directed by the chief to hunt up
this person , but up to a late hour last
night their search had proved unsuc
cessful. The girl is being kindly-cared
for by Miss Thimbleby at the Lick
House , who is anxious that Anna's
relative should be found , ai she pro
poses to leave for her destination , Brit

LOKDOX , April 14 6 a. m. A dis
patch from Cairo states that business
is completely suspended , and is likely
to remain so till the decision of Eng
land and France is known. The gov
ernment is collecting money through
out the provinces ? using every means
of compulsion. An immediate levy
of 10,000 soldiers has been ordered.
A special envoy has been sent by the
Khedive to Constantinople ; he took
with him a large sum of money for the
Chicago Times Cablegram.
LONDON , April 12. The pressure
brought to bear on the sultan by the
representatives of England and Prance
with respect to Egyptain affairs has
been apparently successful , although
in some quarters it is .feared that the
khedive will defy the sultan's threat
to depose him and send Halim Pasha
to succeed him. The opinion is also
current that when the special messen
ger from the khedive reaches the
sultan and the latter is fully apprised
of 1 % the khedive's cide of the
matter , and of the strong popular
support which his plan received in
Egypt , he will withdraw from.his
present position and , as he has done
in other cases , take sides with the
khedive But the holders of Es yp-
tian bonds are elated with the belief
that France and England will 'insist
on the khedive's reiuoval or the rein
statement of the commissioners whom
he has dismissed. The result of the
cabinet co-jncil at Paris to-day has
not transpired.
There are reports thaj the khedive
has been contemplating his new move
ment for some time , and that he has
made extensive preparations for re
sisting any plan to remove him. The
khedive is now in his forty-ninth year
and there are reasons to believe that
for some time he has entertained the
ambition of throwing aside to a cer
tain extent his subserviency to the
sultan and becoming an independent
monarch. He has an army at his dis-
posalof fourregimontsofinfantrynum-
bering 12,000 mun , a battalion of
chasseurs 1,000 strong. 300 cavalry , an
excellent artillery service with 1,500
men , and two battalions of engineers ,
which consist of 1,500 rank and file.
Besides these thcro are two regiments
of black troops from Soudan , 1,000
strong. His navy consists of seven
ships of the line , six frigates , nine cor
vettes , seven brigs , eighteen gunboats
and twenty-seven wooden transport
The financial scheme proposed by
the Khedive , and which is 'the bone
of contention between himself and
the French and English bondholders ,
is baaed on the belief that without at
all increasing the taxes of the wealthy
classes iu Egypt , and by compelling
the foreign residents of Egypt , now
exempt from taxation , to bear their
proportion of the public burden , a
sum to pay the interest on the bond
ed debt and provide a sinking fund
which in twenty years would ex
tinguish the debt can be easily raised.
in political and financial circles here
respecting the matter is becoming
more acute , and though the bondhold
ers have thus far to a great extent ob
tained the public ear , the other side
of the matter has its advocates , who
will probabljMuake themselves heard
in Parliament on its reasBemblit.g
after the Lastcr recess.

There is much interest felt in all po
litical circles regarding the course
which Speaker Randall may pursui to
day in recognizing members. It de
pends wholly upon the speaker which
of thr members of the Maine delega
tion shall be recogn'zed , for since the
foundation of the government it has
been the rule that the States
ghall be called for bills in order , com
mencing with the State of Maine.
The inflationists have endeavored to
hare the rule changed this session so
that the States shall be called in their
alphabetical order , but that proposi
tion has not yet been entertained.
While the speaker has not indicated
what his course will be , there is
not much probability that
the inflationists can get any of these
measures referred to committees to
day , unless the Republicans shall de
cide that it is more to their party in
terest that these wild schemes should
be presented by 'the Democrats and
their full plans be thus developed.

Washington Spedal to the Chicago Tribune.
It now seems that the present ses
sion will last until July. This is the
opinion of those most competent to
judge. The discussion of the legisla
tive bill in the House will probably
not be finished for ten days. The de
bate upon the army bill in the Senate
is likely to consume two weeks. After
the disposition of the army bill the
Senate will next consider the legisla
tive b.ll , and in such .1 slow body will
take at least a week to dispose of
it There will also be a pro
tracted discussion in both houses over
the President's vetoes , first on the
army bill and next on the legislative
bill. The veto messages will of course
be sustained. This will be followed
by caucuses , negotiations , and parleys
to avert the danger of leaving the
government without appropriations.
The Democrats realize that they have
not the strength requisite to carry out
the programme of ihe extremists of
their party , hence it is thought that a
compromise of some kind will be
reached. This is the opinion of the
conservative Djmocrats.

MILWAUKEE , Wis. , April 12. At an
early hour this morning a sailor named
Peter Snell died from the effects of
hydrophobia at his residence , No. 311
Reed street , south sidn. The facts
connected with the case are these :
Capt. Paul Harry , of the schooner
Mary Lyons , who boarded with Mr.
and Mrs. Snell , had a dog , a yellow
mongrel cur , that appeared to have
been voted the freedom of the
domicile. One afternoon late in in
January or early in February last ,
whilfc Snell lay stretched upon the
floor for a nap , this cur ,
which happened to be in
the room , discovered a scratchon
his ( Snell's ) inse and lickeditrSnell
meanwhile raising no objection to the
proceeding , as he with _ others formerly
. .believed in the curative properties of
the salivia of a canine. The scmtch
healed and was soon forgotten , and
the death of the dog , which occurred
a week or two later , under circum
stances that led to the belief thai poi
son had been administered , did not
serve to awaken any fears of danger.
About a week ago Snell complained to
his wife about a severe pain in the re
gion of the heart. It made an invalid
of him , so to speak ; yet he did not take
to his bed , but walked around and
about on the streets on Monday and
Tuesday of the present week. During
Tuesday evening or early Wednesday
morning his throat became affected.
The glai.ds swelled so as to render
swallowing difficult , and the mem
brane became parched and feverish ,
while the pain in the chest appeared
to reach the throat also. Dr. Serin
was cnlled , but the remedies prescrib
ed by him filled to produce any relief ,
and as Snell gradually grew worse it
was observed that he manifested an
aversion to water , and at such times
as it was offered appeared to suffer a
spasmodic convulsion. Then the in
cident of the the licking of the scratch
on bis nosa by the dog , and the subse
quent death of the animal under
peculiajfsymptonis , was recalled , and
it became evident to the physician
that he had a clear case of hydrophobia
on his hands.
Snell rapidly grew rorse ; the light
became painful to h's e/es , his aver
sion to water seemed to increase ,
while the swelling of the throat grew
constantly. Food and water had to
be injected into the stomach at last , as
it was impossible for him to swallow
either solids or fluids. Of course , un
der such circumstances , death became
a question of hours rather thin days ,
and final dissolution occurred at 6
o'clock this morning. During the
closing hours of his illness Snell con
tinued rational , and was perfectly
harmless toward those who attended
him. He assured one and all to have
no fear of approaching him , aa he
would do them no injury , and he was
enabled to keep his word , as his
spasms never rendered it necessary to
hold or even attempt to secure him.
Two dogs that were bitten by the
cur belonging to Capt Harry in fights ,
have died within afew weeks of hydro
phobia , and it is believed that other
curs in the neighborhood may be sim
ilarly affected.
The seaman Snell , whose death is
here recorded , was 30 years of age and
married , but has no children.

Globe-Democrat , Topeka , Kansaa.spe-
cialsays : Gen. St. John had a consul
tation to-day with Jim Cannon , In
dian guide , scout and interpreter from
the Southern Indian agency regarding
the reported design of the Indians
to make another raid this season.
Cannon said the Cheyennes and Arip-
ahoea are sulky and will bear close
watching. The capture and turning
over to the civil authorities for trial of
the Cheyenne chiefs , who led the raid
last year caused a great deal of dissat
isfaction in the tribes sympathizing
with them. Cannon thinks they can
be quieted , however , and kept on
their reservation if early and impor
tant measures are taken.
