Moi.Nr.s , la. , Dec. 0. [ Siwclal to the
HIK. ; ] A visit to the stale library In the new
wipltol Ii rewarded now with an opportunity
to Inspect one of thu line. * ! collections of
autographs In the United St.itcs. Tills col
lection , known as tlio "Aldrlch collection , "
l.s the gift of the Hon. Charles Aldrlch , of
Webster City , and icprcsents the accumula
tion of a llfo time. Mr. Aldrich has been
very enthusiastic and very assiduous in this
chosen work , and has spared neither time nor
oxpcnto to add to Its expense and value.
Heallzlng that comparatively few could en
joy Its treasures If kept at hl.s own home , he
has picscntcd tlio entire collection to the
stale , on thu aimplc condition that a suitable
place be prepared and set apart for It , that It
bliall ho always open to visitors , and that he
Hhall have the privilege of making further ad
ditions to the collection. The trustees of the
stale library may gladly accept the gift on conditions and are gratillcd to know
that the donor is intending to make still
further additions to his already very valuable
The collection now numbers several thou
sand autographs and portraits , and some of
the specimens are almost priceless In value.
The autographs of a large number of promi
nent people are accompanied by portrait en-
L'l-aviius adding much interest , to the collec

Inbilcd , tdiowliu thc.sublect at different ages ,
and in some Instances his birthplace , or other

One of the latest additions to the collection
l.s the autograph ot the emperor of Japan
tlio only ono In America. It was procured
through the joint services of Hon. Frank
llatton , ( at the time postmaster general ) and
Mr. liingham the United States minister to
Japan. These gentlemen communicated to
the mikado tlnough various ollielals of low
nml high degree , the desire of the people of
Iowa to have his autograph in their now
state house. Through the Iriendly assistance
the Ko-Kos Pooh-Hahs Nankl-Poos and
01 - , - , - ,
possibly a Kntisbaand a Yiim-Yinn , the
\vlshwasgratllled. The Mikado's slgnatuio
written on silk , coiined with gold and bright
red , fastened to a suedes of card board about
six inches by eight now rests peacefully at
the top of the collection in the new library.

Kvit to the Irish Convention.
Nr.w YOIIK , Dec. 0. [ Special to the Hu : . ]
The rablo annouucemnnt that Parncll
would not visit America to attend the
National League convention seems to bo no
surprise to Itlsh nationalists here. They R.ny
they hardly expected he would come , and
Homo of them go to the extent of saying they
knew ho would not. However , there seems no
doubt now ho wilt not attend theconventlon.
As the parties are now so evenly divided It
will be absolutely necessary for the leader to
stay at home to watch the moves on the polit
ical checker board. It l.s oven doubtful
whether any prominent member of the Irish
party will attend. Sullivan , lord mayor of.
Dublin , lias just been elected for two Irish
beats. He cannot resign the second one until
parliament meets , and as Parnell needs every
available vote to retain his balance of power ,
ho will wantSiKllvnn's second constituency
tilled at the earliest posslblu date. Sullivan
Is likely on this account to stay at home. T.
P. O'Connor and Mr. In the same
position as Sullivan. It Is entire ! probable ,
therefore , that Iho convention will have to
proceed without the counsel of an Irish
delegation. Ono or two members may come ,
hut they will nut betaken from the leading
A prominent Irish nationalist said to your
correspondent to-day : "I really think Par-
nell clad of such an excellent excuse for ab
senting himself from the convention. I have
been Informed he never positively piomlsed
to attend. His visit to America with Dillon
in 18 Owns not n pleasant e.xpmlence , and
things have not mended hero since. You
may put It down for a dead certainly that
Parnell will not be In Chicago next January. "
Further Inquiry cmcernlng this has brought
out llio fact that tlio national societies
in this city and all through the east are split
up into numerous factions , each one hating
the other bitterly. A year ago the Ancient
Order of Hibernians split In two. There are
two rival organizations now , said to be
equally powerful. Kach will send delegates
to the convention. If both sides are ad
mitted they will bo moro Intent on lighting
each other than on carrying out the pur
poses of the convention. A prominent Irish
national weekly newspaper , In view of these
facts , published iti It.s issue this week thu
following :
"It would be n very good thing. If Par
nell intends to come at all , to defer his
visit until after tlio convention. H Is
evident from the present complexion of
nlfalrs , there Is going to ho a very ani
mated session at thu Chicago convention of
the national league , and that honest nation
alists are determined to see If the machinery
of thu national organization hero cannot , be
taken out of Iho hands of those whose Inlln-
cneos aio only directing them to knavery ,
chicanery and political corruption. Tins
contest is tlio Inevitable , and it should 1m
madu without any interference from the
presence of Parnell. When the result Is de
cided , let him then como , and he will receive
u welcome that Is litting for ono of the great
est living statesmen and one of I'm rcul lead

Accident on the Brooklyn Bridge.
Ni-w : YOIIK , Dec. 5. An accident occurred ,
on the Brooklyn sldo of the Kast Itiver
bridge this liiornlng. About 1 > o'clock two
bridge trains collided. One man was killed
and ( woor three wounded. The cars weie
badly .smashed.
Six persons were badly Injured. The fail
ure of the grip was the cause of the accident.
It happened nt an hour when the cars were
most crowded. A two-car train stalled from
from the iltooklyn terminus packed with
passenger" . Tlio train had gone within l.VJ
yards of Brooklyn when the grip on the cable
gave out unit came to a stop. Despite the ef
forts of the brakcman it began to back down
the Incline with tc.nllie speed. Another
train hud just started and the disabled train
displayed a danger signal , but It was too late.
When the passeiucrs saw their danger they
were terror stricken. The trains crashed
together in a common wreck. Shrieks
of pain and horror arose from
struggling men and women while the police
and train hands with passengois waiting on
tlio platform ran to tlie rescue. The en
trances to the bndgo were barred and none
admit led to increase thecrowd and confusion.
Ambulances und police were summoned.
The condnutorof the second train and Victor
Schaumlmrg had to be cut out of the wreck.
The latter's ankle was broken and his feet
nearly cut olf. Four or live others received
serious Injuries , hut it is thought not fatal.
The wreck was soon cleared away and travel
on the bridge resumed within half an hour.
Ilolmimon the Indian Question.

In nn interview In the Sun , Congressman
Iloliuan , member of the special committee to
Investigate Indian affairs , says thu commit
tee hopes to have its report ready about tlio
middle of December. He says : "Speaking
for myself. 1 think It n good pulley to Induce
the Cheyenne , Arapahocs , Wlcliitas , Kiowas
and Comiminclic.s , who occupy a vast region
in the western part of Indian territory , and
other unsettled Indians , to move eastward on
the unoccupied region , and to obtain the con
sent of the Indians Including the Chcrokeest ,
to a sale of the wcHern part of tlio territory
to actual .settlers , the proceeds to bo lnve < leJl
for the bom-lit of the tribes Interested , This
policy would in some degree consolidate the
tribes and Icavoth'-m a country as largo as
Ind'aiiH , form a fair sized stdto for wblto
eltl/ens in tlio westein part of the territory ,
and destroy every excuse for organized In

The close of the week leaves a moro en

While business devvlo.ted no paitlctilarly

buying as freely as uit-unm try. Neverthe
less , tiio movement ot the week Is taken us a
sign of coilddeneelntlie future. In all the
Important adjuncts to general business there
also .seems to be anticlp.itluns of an increased
trade baud on the future entirely. Commer

mo u til 3 ago. 11 lias now entirely dlsap"
pearcd. The largest dealers In merchants'
notosln New York are tui.ible to lind any
notes , of re.nona'jlo activity tlio
trouble Is usually the other way , being that of
n selection from an immense amount of
pan tr off . 'red. Just at present , however , cap
ital lies-Idle and nn notes of any dcscilptlon
are nbluinab.c. At tlio samu time both ha.iks
and dealers accept thu view of the meican-

1 n stook exchange circles the whole week
has been spent In walling for correct tips In
the West Snore injunction case , it looked as
if Ioud in had It , Saturday , for the market
theie in Americans was very strong and gave
considerable Impetus to the Now Vork mar
ket lu which the general public wore not in
formed of the compromise of thu matter and
the withdrawal of the suit until about noon.
The Vundeibilt Interest have again scored
their point and everything looks like a bull
market next week. That l.s about all tliut
can be said so thoroughly does the conditions
of speculation seem to hu In the bauds of a
limited nninbbi1 of bull operators , wuo , acting
in pcifoct aecoul , are apparently able to do
what they please with prices. The past week
was not their time to do anything. In fuel
tin ; more the mnrkct hail the appearance of
having tlie bottom knocked out , without at
tlio same time really going to pieces , the bet
ter it suited Ihc.r pnipo-w. It rather fell In
with their design to depress prices and make
trading an action as a m % an.s of showing tliut
untold disaster would to.low the upholding
of the injunction prohibiting the pin chase uf
the West Shore bv the Ne.v Yon ; Central.
Of the suit Itself there can be. . no doubt it was
an invention of some ono nut far from the
stock market , and it would be interesting to
know how it was squared and with whom.

conference , which was in .session here , closed
yesterday , and the majority of the delegates
fit for homo on the afternoon train. The
delegates were much elated at the success of

plished. It was decided tocieato a national
committee that woidd bo known as the "civil
engineers' committee on public works. "
Delegates to the convention will servo on the
committee until they are replaced by iiu-mliers
elected from tile societies. The following
was adopted :
The loiemost nations of the old world
have organl/.ed .systems of internal Improve
ments. Thu United Stnte.s at picsont has no
Kiich system. The marvellous development
of this great country demands t > nme adequate
organization of sncli a system. In the loriua-
tlon of such an organl/.iitlon advantage
sho'dd ' be iiilcen of the bust features of the
KyMems of other nations. Tim main reason
for success of such works In foreign eonuti les
Is duo to the fact that tlrny are conducted
under thn civil administration , nlthoiiih the
governnnn'M the nsclves In other respects
are nuuu essentially military than our own ,
Under picient methods of government wo
cannot possibly secure such trained si,111.
The reason is that no emoluments or reputa
tion rommonMirato with the service mulcted ,
or equal to what erin be obtained on civic
woikn , are at lain able on the public works of
ourgovcrnmont. These facts deter mini of
oxpoiicnce from entering th service of the
government , and also thost wh > have trained
cxpciioiifo therein from lemainlng In its em
ploy. Ui'cogni/ing that n cn.nprolicnslvo .

spiiftfully suggest that congress establish a
