It is held that Kelley is a capa ble man and in every way fitted tu fill the po sition to which ha hag bjen assigned. When he was appointed United States minister to Italy he was endorsed by the entire congres sional delegation of Virginia and was confirmed by the senate. The Italian government asked whether or not Kelley had given utterance in a public speech in 1871 to sentiments in oppo sition to tbo occupation of Homo by Victor Emanual. The former government nftor- wardi , it Is said , protested against his np- and Keiley resigned his commission , Sointment t is held that the Austrian government hu no grounds to complain of Kolloy.

I That by the Jaws of nations the authori ties of Haytl hadjurisdictlon of the per son of 1'ollitor.

Ho Bays the invitation extended bj this government to Ilayti to eubmit this claim to arbitration was busfd upon the theory tha' Polletitr was eogtged In a lawful undorlakiti at the tlmo of liia arrest , which theory th opinion of the arbitrator absolutely destroy !

Ono active Wall street man , who is very familiar with the affairs of that company , said that tbo now government directors did not appear to him to bo the kind of men they needed to cope with the phrowd men who bad sn long controlled the Union Pacific.

THE GRlfoF A GIEL , Ho\v Marylrbjr Brought Perry John son to Time , and BlndoIIIni Marry Her. It became tha oulclal duty yesterday afternoon of Judge Barndes to.ring the curtain down on the conclusion of quito . an intcrettlng and somewhat ecnaatioiml llttlo drama. It was a drama in two acts and four pcencs , but utterly devoid of all 1 orchestral , red light or stage thunder ac companiments , It was a drama of real I life , and depleted two very distinct , well- drawn characters. The first two ecenes are laid In Dos Moincc , Iowa , and the last two in Omaha. Briefly statad , the plot , the story and the action are told 0i 0a follows : Trfo yoats ago Perry Johnson and Mary Irby , both then living at Dos Molnos , mot and boomo acquainted with each other. This acquaintance soon grow Into warm friendship nnd the ' friendship Into rod-hot love , Bat , ' as will 1 bo seen further along , this1 love , espe cially on Perry's part , was not of that pure , holy and sacred character which tends to elevate , enlighten and refine , and Mary's love was of entirely too confiding a nature. The result vras they loved unwisely and far too well. Criminal iiltimicjr followed and , after having cocured the girl's ' vruin , Potry suddenly , unexpectedly , and with out letting it bo generally known , packed his baggage , deserted his duped victim I , and caina to Omaha. There the curtain went downou ( a scene of agony. Bat itff. M ry Irby was not a girl to be thrown off. in that manner. She determined to make It warm for that young man unless ho made her his wife , therefore two days ago ebo arrived In Ocqahaalso. Yesterday the had Perry Johnson arrested on a charge of bastardy and arraigned , befpre Juttlca Barndvs to glvo an account of hla conduct. Ralhor , liowever , than h vo aqy further ( .trouble iho relented and agreed to do the handsome by making Mary his wife. Soon as the necessary papers could bo procured Judge Barndes performed the ceremony and tbo 'young counJo went away apparently happy with each. * BUTCHERS ABROAD.
