James B , Unycs , who to-day was appointed

ofn e. lie has boon n member of the legisla
ture of Wisconsin , also county judgoof Dadgo
county of that state , nnd ono of thu loaders of
the democratio party in Dodge county. He
was prominent In the fight against Congress
man Bragg's nomination two years ago. He

John 0. Macgrogor , osjlstnut chief of the

appointed to bo chief of that division , vice

The commissioner appointed by the presi
dent to visit South American countries in the
interest of the commerce of the United States
has reported under date of April 25th to the
department of state the result of its observa
tions while at Lima , Peru , In n communica
tion to the secretary of state , accompanying
the report , the commission say * , "The po
litical situation in Peru is not such as to
make a mission like that upon which wo had
the honor to come , either satisfactory or con
ducive. But wo are gratified to bo able to
report n cordial reception by the provisional
government and from thopcoplo.notwithatand-
ing the fact they fool somewhat aggrieved at
tha failure of the United States to exerciao its
good ofHcon for their benefit during the recent
war with Chili. This delicate subject was not
alluded to ollisinlly during our visit but in
private conversations tba complications of
three and four years ago were spoken of In
such a manner us to leave the impression
that our government , in their opinion , did
prove moro injury than good. However , there
is still the most friendly eontlmont which has
been stimulated by the attitude of Minister
Phelps nnd a desire to secure moro intimate
international commercial relations between
the two countries. The neoplo privately talk
of annexation to the United States ; news
papers openly advocate a protectorate over
i'eru by our government ni the best
mode of securing Internal peace ,
and there have been many
other Etiggestians advanced in the same spirit.
Our commerce with this country has dwindled
down to almost nothing in comparison with
its former magnitude. This is accounted for
by the enormous decrease In the purchasing
power of Peru , and by tha fact that the steam
ship company which enjoys n monopoly on
the west coast of South America uses its in-
iluence and regulates its freight tariffs so ns to
divert trade to England. It U the opinion
of every merchant in Peru and of the mem
bers of the government that these conditions
can't bo changed until there is direct commu
nication by ( team between tbo ports of this
country and these of the United States , It is
said to bo cheaper to ship goods from Now
York by way of Liverpool and Hamburg
around the horn to Callaa , than by way of tha
ishthmus , while n passengea pays S37B in
American geld for transportation from Now
York to Valparaiso.
"Wo were formerly presented to the presi
dent on April 20th. Mr , Commissioner Thatch
er presented Gen. Iglosias with an autograph
letter from the presdent of the United States ,
and delivered nn address to which the presi
dent replied. At the conclusion of the cere
monies wo were Invited by the president to a
private reception room where we were all
presented to tbo monrbors of the cabinet and
the attendants , and had n few moments con
versation. On the next day wo had on
official conference.
"It showed that while the government o
this republic is not in n position politically to
make any concession at present to encourage
trade Its sentiments nro exceedingly friendly
and its wish is to glvo us the benefits uow
enjoyed by England.
" 1'ho permanency ofthopresontgovernmont
is probable but not assured. The country is
stripped of everything that is valuable. Con
scripts for two armies have left tha farms un
til the people are producing nothing. Trade
is practically suspended nnd the people wno a
few years ago wera in nflluent'circumatancos
ro now living upon what they can borrow o
iawn brokers. Importing merchant ! say thai
; bey cannot buy goods without sending cast :
With the orders and distrust Is so general
jthat credit is obsolete , The government has
ncurod an enormous debt and Its principal
lources of revenue the Guano islands hav <
) oen seized by Chili , but with a few ] rears a.
Wcoand industry , prosperity would return
o Peru , for her natural resources are abuncl

pd the president and mlniater of foreign af-
Jrs of Peru , the ] : ut named officer said :
this government it dlspoted to give all possi
ble facilities for increased trade but think
'iothor line of steamers would be very deslra <

ollicer , which position ho hold upto _ within a
few weeks ago , when ho voluntarily resigned

troug lor her nnd succeeded in opening the
ihost and getting the pistol , Pursued by his
vife , he fled through two bed rooms and par-
or to the sitting room in the front of the
louao. She heard a shot , nnd when she en-
.cred the room a moment later she found him
dead. Ho had placed the pistol in his mouth
nnd fired , blowing out his brains. Dumont
was 41 and n native of Now Orleans , Ho had
crved as lieutenant in the French nrmy nod
ens with Maximillian In Mexico. In appear-
, nco ho was a light octoroon , nnd neither he

ALIIANT , N. Y. , July 1. Lottie Watson ,
; ho woman with the iron jaw , with Van Am
mrgh's circus , met with an accident yestor-
ay afternoon that will came her retirement
'rom ' the ring , To exhibit her great strength
f jaw , she has been in the habit of holding
impended from her mouth a cannon , which ia
discharged while in mid-air , The daring of
.ho performance Is Increased by the
act that the woman is hoisted from
Jao ground and hangs head down
ward during the feat. Yesterday she
was assisted by Freeman and Rice , her
brothers , athletes , who superintended the
ipparatus , and had raised her to the proper
.ioitlit for firing the cannon , when one of the
pulley's ropes suddenly broke. The heavy
piece of ordnance and Mile Watson were per-
cipitated to the ground , n distance of about
six feet. She struck the cannon head first
with tertifio force and was picked up uncon
scious. For a time the wildest ex
citement prevailed in the circus , but it
quickly subsided , as the injured woman was
removed , and the show went on according to
the programme. When taken to tbo hospital
ihs was found to be seriously injured. Her
orehead was crushed in , the wound taking
the form of a star. Her mouth was cut , and
two teeth knccked out. Her right hand was
badly bruised , and some internal Injuries were
received about the stomach. She will prob
ably be confined to the hospital for some
line ,
Mackin Gets Another Sentence ,
CHICAGO , 111. , July 1. Ths jury in th <
Mackin perjury CKO returned this afternoon
liaviupr been out exactly one hour , with a ver
dict of gulty. Tba punishment fixed was five
years iinprlsnment. As the last words of the
verdict were being pronounced Mtckin turned
slightly pale and clasped his hands together
as if in a spaem of pain , But this lasted only
a moment , nnd he chatted with bis brother.
The jury was unanimous trom the start as to
Mackln's ' guilt , and there was very little dis
cussion over the term of imprisonment. The
delay in reaching a verdict came from the fact
that the jury sent for and tend over a part of
the evidence. Tbo prisoner at once was taken
to the jail where ho remarked to a roportei
who had inquired how ho felt about the vor
diet : "Well , my hey , there are great change !
in many men's lives. But we ain't throng ) :

city for his pluck , bravery , and , above
all , for notions of honesty , which , hit
friends said , was so old-faslitoncc } as to
canto him to rather loan backward. Saur
had the usual experience of ou ? soldiers ,
and was brought hcma with ft mimic-ball

Ihorman and Grant at Vicksbnrg , and
wss known to bo kcqnal to any emcr-
In time Grant wont to other fields , and
ur captain plodded through the war
with Sherman , Logan , Blair , and Belk >
sp , the latter having lived next door to
Ini In his native tawn all his life , and ,
f course , know him Intimately.
Well , Oapt. Saur under the Inw rcgn-
athig snoh matters , wag responsible to
lie government for alt the property of
ils company. It had been receipted for
> y htm Btidj when ho TTOJ dntnchod or
arnod over his command to another ho
liocld hnvo taken a voucher that all the
roporty clurgecl against him might bo
uly credited him In the quartermaster's
opartmont , For sumo rensan , In the
xigoncles of an active command this was
ot done and after Capt , Sntir was inns-
orod out ho had duo him $2,000 back
iiy. After some tlmo ho wns
: onfrontcd with a largo account
5 lnst him for property un-
ecanutod for. Ho called on Quarter-
nnstcr-Conoral Mofgs , who fucnlahcd
dm a bill of particular * , saying : "Cap-
ain , there nro two ways yon can got
redit for this account. Furnish mo to-
olpts for such propotiy aa yon may have
urnod over , or file your oath , on on
Ilicer , that It was lost or destroyed in
ctlon. The latter way is very common
otv , In settlements of euch accounts , I
m powerless under the law to help you
therwls ; . "
Inncannlng the Items standing charged
'ninst him , Oapt. Sane noticed n lot
E picket ropoa and stakes , about which
10 well remembered , and ho said : "Gen.
lolgo , when In chase of Hood and his
rmy , ono day a contractor came to mo
ith a paromptory order to resolva end
occipt for a picket rope and atako for
very horse In my command. My men
were old soldiers , wera mod to hard work
nd much fighting , and worn loaded
own frith all they could carry. They
coded only plenty of hard-tack , bacon ,
ofToe , and ammunition , bat had no use
or a rope and stake , weighing twenty cr
ilrty pounds , and openly said so , But
my orders were to take the ropes. I did
0 and distributed them , At the end of
bo first mlle not a ropa conld bo found ,
uvory man had thrown his into the
) rush. Now , no living man could pro-
rent this. I have no receipt , nor was
ho property lost In battlo. You cay If
" swear It was so lost I can h&vo proper
rodlt. The law apparently gives n
iromium for lying. 1 won't do It. If
he facts arc not enough I will go with-
mt my pay. " And so ho left It and came
lomo to condor over the injustice of
, rmy regulations.
In time , however , Gen. Graut made
Bolknap secretary of war. Grant and
Belknap know how such things came
about , and Captain Saur again wont to
Washington to Uy his case before his
rlend , Secretary Belknap. The secretly
aid : "Captain , Gen. Molgs is right , it
s the law. I know of no way to help
ron-out , save as ho suggests. t But possi-
jy the president can help you out. Lot
1 go over to-morrow before business
lours and hear what he aiya. Ho will bo
nterested and will listen to yon. " This
was dono. The president reviewed his
recollection of the young captain and
aid : "Captain , I will sand for the pa
> ers In your case to-day. Come In again
o-morrow morning and 1 will see what
can bo done. " When Captain Saur again
called Grant handed him his papers , say
ng : "Tako those to Gen , Melgs , and 1
; hink ho will settle your accounts satls-
'actorlly. " The papers were endorsed.
Quartermaster - General uleiga Sir :
you will at once adjust this account of
3apt. Saur , giving him credit for all prop
erty now charged him in your depart
ment , so ho may draw his pay and go
lomo without delay.
President United States. "
Capt. Saur took his papers and pre
sented them to the grizzly West Pointer ,
Gen. Molgs , who after adjusting his
glasses and reading the order , turned to
Oapt. Saur and smilingly said : "Well
this Is auflicient law for mo. I will have
? our account ready for settlement so yon
: an take an early train to-morrow. " So
3apt. Saur got his pay , and so President
Grant cut the red tape of army regain

"Was there ever any such fast train as
; ho 'Chicago limited * before the conooll
datlon of tbo lines which now make tli
Now York Central & Lake Shore ? " I In
"There was a train which ran between
Now York and Chicago in twenty-six
lours , but it was not continued very
long. The advantage of consolidation
ii.ia boon more in the reduction of tin
cost of operation and an Increasi
of safety than In a chaugo of speed
of trains. Through freight trains from
Chicago to Now York began to run in
1804 , end through passenger trains were
started a year later. In 1805 Oommodoro
Yandorbllt negotiated tlio purchase o
the Oloxoland & Toledo railway , and my
acquaintance with him began with tha
trausBctlon. Since the beginning of the
consolidation movement the manage
ment of railways has been , greatly im
proved. "
"Do yon not expect that the epjod of
railway trains will ba still furthoa In-
No. I do not. It does not pay to run
very fast trains , The people are not
willing to pay the extra fare required to
meet the extra exponco , When a train
Is driven beyond a certain rate of speed
tbo wear and tear rapidly increase and
the cost of operation Is so much greater
that more fare must bo charged than entrains
trains of average speed , This train
is fast enough for mo , Us average
rate bolng exactly thirty-five mtlea
an hour , Including stops , and there
are not travelers enough who
ate willing to pay an extra price
for riding at the r to of forty miles an
honr to make our 'Chicago Limited' a
profitable train. Wo run It because the
Pennsylvania railway runs a similar
train , and with four tracks and a level , [
country the New York Central and Lake
Shore system can run very fast trains be
tween Now York and Chicago as advant
ageously as any rival , but I favor a train
to make more than thiiiy-fivo miles an
hour only to meet competition. "
