'governor was with great nnrprli-c by
thu democracy in this city. They relumed
from Saratoga In the firm belief they had
done a very shrewd thing in giving Fhiwer
second placu on ( ho state ticket after his
nctlvoworlf nnd his liberal expenditures In
nn honorable effort to get the nomination for
thu presidency , and they thought he would
again opi'n his piwkutbook for Iho sight of
cold victu.ds for the .second table. His per
sonal friends thought hu would run nnd they
were really to help him , under thu impression
Unit he wanted icc-ognltlon at. Iho hands of
thu party to which hu has given so much and
from which ho has received M little , lie felt
being nmije a willing tool of , and if hu ac
cepted the nomination hu would be made fur

looks very much as If Im Intended to pay his

Riven a cold chill to tins Wall htreet party ,
who would have been willing to support one

nothing to sav. They do not know who to
Jook to , and they are afraid that neither Slo-
I'um nor Smith will accept , anil are afraid to
Jail back on Jacobs. I lower himself talks
about a majority of10,000 for the republican
ticket , and he neyi'r once wavered In his re-
Insal , even after ho hud been offered large
contributions from personal friends , who
thought hi- desired to make a light.
Whether or no Ids'declination was intended
forty-eight hours' ago is not. certain , but It
looks very much ; is it In ; bad taken this step
with maiicu aforc.lhought. A significant , In

Is like the center of a whirlwind , It Is per
fectly calm , while tempests are circling
around It. There Is no excitement , among
even the most enthusiastic. I'ulgnrlans and
Turkish partisans , Jwho are hopelessly in the
minority , are as quiet as mice. There Is no
danger of lighting , nnd the leaders are de
voted to maintaining thu order on
both sides. The march of Imlgarlan troops
through itoumolla Is so circumspectly ordered
that no lumping is allowed , and quartomas-
t irrt uru forbidden to. make forced req
uisitions. Every effort is made to pre
vent aggression on either side. Deposed
officials , who would be supposed to be heartily
devoted to Turkish rule , are now vieing with
each other for positions under thenew re
gime. Mill. Trotter sums up the situation by
saying : "The only lighting in project is a
neighborhood quarrel , that will result in si
low stabs in the dark. No troops will go
northward and no Turkish olllcer will get his
promotion from tills affair. " Other dispatches
irom Constantinople show that Turkish
troop's , which weie to have been sent to Hul-

It has just leaked out that the duke of
Edinburgh recently visited incognito an
antique furniture shop in Chester where his
royal highness noticed a handsome arm chair
and offered to buy it. The dealer invited the
duke to sit in the chair for a few moments ,
and he complied with tlio request. His roval
highness had no more than got fairly seated
when the dealer released a number of con
cealed springs which pinned tiie duke tightly
to the clmiIn ; vain lie struggled to release
himself. Becoming alarmed at his situation
und fearing that it was a plot of Ihu in-

thought lie was only trying to frighten him ,
but the police arrived in answer to the duke's

A Contract Decision.
WA m"xo.TO.v , .Sept. 20. .Secretary Man
ning to-day , .lii.n decision regarding repairs
on tlie steamer Crawford , guve n general In
terpretation "oMho law ou " 1L awarding of
contracts. II is in the form of an opinion
froln thei-oUc.Itor "of iho treasury , of wJlich
tlio following is the gist : . The general rule ,
so. far ax e < mgifc.s.thu. * expressed itself , seems
to' bo that thti lowest bid should beat-copied.
The requirements in regard to adver
tising , giving- notice to bidders of
the unto nntl place of opening bids and
permitting them to bo present , make it-appa
rent , that I tv. IK the intention of congress to
require , its a rule , the acceptance of tlio low- '
t-Kt bid. In any other view this legislation is
uselessTJicro nro many circumstances ,
.however , which would Justify a departure.
from this rule. Such circtmistaiu-ex should hi ;
considered , and if shown lo bo material , and
that by icaifJn of their existence it is for the.
best interests of the I'lilti-d .Stalto to
accept a bid which Is not tlio low
est , eourso may bo taken.
These circumstances should be such as
to effect tin economy and best interests of the.
service only , not that ol individuals. The
proof of insolvency of the bidders , or other
inability to curry out a contract , would be
good ground to reject the lowest bid. but
mere allocations of such inability without
) JVoof to sustain them could not warrant a
departure from the general rule. Kor these
reasons I advise the secretary lo adhere , to the
rule evidently Intended to bo applied by con
gress in sui'.h eases as furnishing the be t pre
lection to tlio public interest : ) .
