KNSS CITV , August 11. [ Special Tele
gram to Tim Bur. . ] The business men and
ho traveling public are up in arms against
the proposed abolition of the fast trains.
3ver since the lir.st announcement of this
'act the prominoat railroad officials have
icon visited by citizens deprecating the ac
tion of the general nianau'crs nnd nakmg that
this determination be revolted. This morn-
ng a number of gentlemen called at the rail
road offices and asked that an application bo
made to the general managers to rescind the
action. They stated that there was nothing
that has been of so much benefit to Kansas
3ity in the past year as the establishment of
these fast trams. By means of them busi-
loss men of Kancas City were enabled to go
to Chicago and purchase their goods with the
oss of but ono day. The Chicago merchants
ind business men in turn could visit Kansas
Jity with the same corresponding saving of
time. They further represented that hun
dreds of business men , capitalists and specu-
ators have been drawn to the city to look
over it and many of them have established
lero. A petition is being prepared by the
business men of this city and will bo for
warded to the general managers of all the
railroads at Chicago. The wholesale iuiplo-
ncnt men in the west bottoms are particu
larly anxious to have the trains continued.

WASHINGTON , August 11. [ Special Telegram -
gram to Tin : Bin : . | General Sheridan died
is ho lived n soldier and ho was buried
as ho died a soldier. No funeral services
were ever conducted with moro perfect pre
cision. They were like clock-work and not a
ar occurred to mar the beauty and Imprcs-
sivencss of the occasion. Cardinal Gibbons'
address , which embraced a sketch of the
dead chieftain drawn from personal rolutlous
with him , was pronounced remarkable in
imny Aspects , The fearless manner in
which the cardinal endorsed , not only tlio
means , but the ends of the general in his
ride through the Shenandoah , created some
surprise. Ho declared that the general was
never unnecessarily harsh with his foe ,
and that ho always employed the mild
est means to obtain ills victory. The
services occupied overall hour and a half.
A more distinguished body of men never
assembled to pay tribute to the memory of
my man. Besides the president , his cabinet ,
General Sliormaii , the leading meu in both
louses of congress and tire Justices of the supreme -
promo court , tlioro wcro a large number of
well known men from various parts of the
country. The cortege moved at 10:30 : o'clock ,
and the remains will bo beneath the ground
at Arlington before - o'clock.
Considerable feeling was created this
morning in G. A. H. circles by the refusal of
Cardinal Gibbons to colobr.ito mass if mem
bers of a secret society wore permitted to at
; cnd the services In the capacity of their
order. A largo number of G. A. H. men as
sembled at tlio church before this announce
ment was made.
[ Press. ] The last rites for tlio dead were
to-day performed according to the ordinance
of the Roman Catholic church for General
Philip Henry Sheridan and ills body laid to
rest in Arlington cemetery. The day was
marked by a general suspension of public
business , The ceremonies throughout were
in keeping with the character of ho man , in
strict adherence to military simplicity in all
arrangements. A heavy wheeled artillery
caisson for his hoarse and a procession of a
thousand soldiers who had scon active ser
vice , best befitted tlio closing scenes in the
life of the great soldier.
St. Matthew's church , where the remains
of General Sheridan had lain in state sincj
Thursday afternoon and where the principal
burial services were hold , is the most popular
Catholic church in Washington nnd for many
years it has unmoored among its communi
cants members of many of tlio foreign lega
tions resident here , cabinet ministers , sena
tors nnd representatives in congress. At 0
o'clock the ctoors of the church wore thrown
open nnd such of the largo crowd assembled
outside as had received tickets of admission
were permitted to enter. They
were conducted to their seats by a
corps of aides in full military uniform. Some
time before tlio commencement of the exercises -
cisos , carriages bearing tlio members of the
diplomatic corps , the joint committee of
congress , senators and representatives in
congress began to arrive , and the body of the
church was speedily tilled. About 9:00 : the
pall bearers entered headed by General
Sherman in full uniform. Soon after the
joint committee of congress appeared nnd
were conducted to seats in front and to the
right of the catafalque , four of them occupy
ing General Sheridan's pew. They wore
white sashes and were headed by Senators
Gray and Hampton , and among them ex-
Confcderalo General Joseph Wheeler , of
Alabama , ana General Charles E. Hooker ,
At 9:40 : President and Mrs. Cleveland and
Secretaries Fairchild nnd Vilas canio In and
took seats in front and on the right of the
center aisle. Mrs. Folsom , Secretary Bay
ard and Postmaster General Dickinson fol
lowed and were seated in the vicinity. About
tivo minutes after the presidential party had
been seated Mrs. Sheridan arrived and waa
escorted to her scat at the loft of and near
the casicet. She was deeply veiled nnd lean
ing on the arm of Colonel Sheridan. They
were accompanied by General and Mrs.
Hucker , John Sheridan , the general's broth ;
or. and his wife.
Meanwhile the diplomatic corps , many
members of which wore attired in full court
dress , had been seated on the extreme richt
and left of the church. Army Surgeons
O'Heill.v and Yarrow and Dr. Lincoln , Col
onel Blunt and Colonel Kellogg and General
Sheridan's staff , occupied scats to the left ol
the main aisle and immediately
in the rear of Mrs. Sheridan. The
rear or the church was occupied bv
largo numbers of members of congress , of-
fleers of the army and navy , and public of
ficials. The wide galleries and all the avail
able seats in the church were occupied
before the funeral services began. Largo
wreaths , crosses and baskets of flowers
tilled the open space in front of the altars.
Just at 1U o'clock twenty-two acolytes en
tered from the sacristy , and fil'ng
right and loft took seats beside
the black palled catafalque. They
were followed by eight Dominicianfi
wearing heavy black and white habits , nnd
ten surpliccd priests chanting "Tho Mis-
crer.i. " At the conclusion of this service
Fathers Uyan , Kervick nnd Mackin , deacon
nnd sub-deacon and celebrant of the mn ° s.
entered the sanctuary. They were followed
by the Hight Kov. John P. Foluy , bishop-
elect of Detroit , and two priests. Cardi
nal Gibbons was last to enter. Ho wore
a led cloak. white surpiico and
purple cap , wltti a long gold chain
supporting the pectoral cross upon his breast
nnd the red > l/.ncchcta" upon his head ,
Kneeling at the altar ho offered prayer , and
taking his seat on the throne the celebration
of the solemn mass was begun. In accordance
anco with tuu request of Mrs. Sheridan
Schmidt's mass was sung by the church choii
to organ accompaniment. At the offertory ,
the "Christus Salvator Mundi" was sung ,
The ceremony occupied forty minutes nnd
when it was concluded Cardinal Gibbons
ascended the pulpit aud preached an eloquent
At 11 o'clock the cardinal descended froir
the pulpit , and taking his placj in front ol
the throne the black and gold mantle wa :
placed upon his shoulders and the bishop' :

choir sang the "Libera Mo. " The cardinal
who had taken his seat at the head of tin
casket , removed his mitro nnd sprinkling
the casket with holy water , and swinging i
censer pronounced the absolution. At the con
elusion of this ceremony the "Benedictus"
was chanted , and the solemn and impressive

LINCOLN , Nub. , August 11. [ Special Telo-
i-ram to TUB llii : . | The 11. fc M. is
thoroughly down for once In Lancaster
county. The light of the dav was in the
Third ward. Tlio Haymond-McUrldu people
got there without the loss of n man. It was
a Waterloo for Pound in his own ward.
Johnson , the railroad candidate for the house
in the Third , stood at the polls nil the after
noon challenging every laboring man who
offered to vote. It wns n game to kill time
nnd to shut out tlio vote against them.
His action was a burning disgrace tea
a country boasting n free ballot. The
election passed oft quietly in nil tlio
other wards. The Huyinond-MoHrido dele
gation was elected tiy U'fl majority. It was
n great victory. The question of submission
carried In tills city by 15 votes. Tlio election
of the national republican ticket could not
create wilder excitement in Lincoln than the
result of the primary election to-day. The
Pound-Moore fellows sought to capture votes
by putting Lceso's name at tlio head of their
ticket. But tltu game WHS too transparent.
It would not work. The laboring men know
that tlio B. .Si M. erowd had no use for
Lecso. They stood bravely by their friends.
The returns from country precincts indicate
that Curler is not friendless.
A Cowardly Detective.
LINCOLN , Neb. , August 11. [ Special Tele
gram to Tun BEI : . ] The B. ft M. detectives
nmdo another unaccountable and cowardly
attack upon the innocent nnd nelpless at OU5
o'clock this evening. The attack look place
just as the Omaha excursion party was ready
to pull out for homo nt the Burlington depot.
It seems that arrangementsJind been made
for the trains to go homo over the B. ft M.
route that the profits of the day might bo di
vided. In some way this fact became known
nnd a number of the Union Pacific employes
jumped from tlio train declaring that they
would not ride homo over any scab road.
Some unknown undertook to uncouple the
engine from the passenger cars when n bar
of iron was thrown at his head just missing
him. At this a party grappled
with the depot , pollcenm'j and
a general fight seemed Imminent , when a so-
called detective , one of Pineo's men , pulled
his revolver and commenced to shoot , empty
ing iivo chambers of his revolver into the
helpless crowd , two innocent men falling
severely wounded. D. J. Iloffer was shot
through the left hip , nnd Patrick Speltmnn
through the left ankle. HelTer is a farmer
residing in Jewell county , Kan. , and ho was
en route for Pacific Junction , la. Speltman
is an employe of the Union Pacific freight
department at Omaha. Tlio attack was
assassin-liko and cowardly , nnd the shots
wcro liroJ promiscuously into the crowd.
An oye-witness says that it was unwar
ranted and without provocation. Intense cx-
citcmont prevails. A regular riot seemed
imminent for a time. The detective who did
the shooting is now under arrest. It is
rumored that n lady was also wounded. The
wounded men are now at the Capitol hotel ,
where they are receiving overv possible care.
The extent of their injuries is notyot known ,
but the wounds nro not considered danger
ous. Had the detective been caught while
the excitement was nt its height ho would
certainly have been lynched.

Nnw YOUK , August 11. [ Special Tele
gram to Tin : Bun. ] The week in Wall street
has been tlio best for the bulls that they have
seen in a month. They had the shorts thor
oughly on the run and found it easy to ad
vance the prices of heretofore inactive stocks
and make good sums. Tlio street was filled
with bull rumors to buy any stock on the en
tire list , and , strange to .say , had they been
operated on at the opening , fair profits could
have been realized , as all advanced. The
market widened perceptibly. This was ap
parent from the resistance prices showed to
the efforts made by largo arid influential
operators to bring about a reaction or de
cline. This class of tradcw , owing
to the narrowness of the market ,
have for months past boon able
to give character and direction to prices ,
and when , a few weeks ago , they were in
spired by brilliant crop prospects , and other
favorable features , to take the long side of
the market , they had a comparatively binall
following. Having established an advance
in such specialties as mostly received their
attention , they marketed the large percent
age , if not all their holdings , with a vluw of
replacing them at a lower lovel. In tlio
meantime , however , confidence in the valno
of railway securities was great and brought
into the market such a demand for sloi-ks
nnd bonds as in a great measure to thwait
t ho plans referred to. Wo do not ostiaiato
tins demand as very lar0'O as yet , but coin-
Dared with the available supnjy of stocks it
is important. It must bo icir.cmbored that
during the long period of dull and
dragging market in the pait there was n
quiet absortion of stocks which largely re
duced the floating supply , consenuoutli the
increased demand find.s thn market compara
tively bare. In addition to this fact the reac
tionists have had to contend iifiainst the
moral effect of the strong and advancing
prices of man\ stocks , in which th"y are not
interested and which had not participated in
the earlier advance. Western Union wa
ono of this class of stocks , which Increased
In activity , and nt timc.s led the mnrliot. Jt
is stated that many thousands of tibnrus have
boon purchased by and trans
ferred to London account , and that
the foreign interest has become so largo and
hold by such influential parties that the stock
will soon lie listed on the London stock ex-
chantre. Test office rci * > rts also ahow a
largo increase in the revenues of the co.n-
pany , and it is well known that an advance is
soon to ho made ir rablc rates ami inland
charges also , which will augment t.ns much
more. A tendency of the railroads to moro
harmonious working amoiih' competing and
connecting llnoi is noted. Thecxperii'ucc ' /f
the past , whiln expensive , lias brrn instructive
and railway manart-rn are shoxvmg moro
willingness to settle their differences and
adjust rateon a paying lia-tlu. This ia
shown by the aprc-cment of wust'irn roadi to
advance rates in Illinois and other states to
an ncrrcfd schedule , and also in the recom
mendation mt.dc by the trunk llnca to sus

There nro no prospect. * that the tariff bill
will como up in the bcnntu before the 1st of
September. Chairman Allison ami other
members of the nub-committee on filiation
preparing the bill , gave another hearing
to-day. Mr. Allison stated to Tin : BKI : cor
respondent this afternoon that there was no
probability of the bill golnir to tlio scnatu

by the full comintttco within that time. Ho
Intimated that It would bo at least two wcoki
before the bill was finally completed. Even
should the mciiMirn bo taken up for

propects are that the session will bo pro

aiv anticipating at least three weeks' of de

inhist upon a quorum for the defeat of Mr.

Gentlemen who saw Mr. Blaine In New
York jestcrday and heard him speak Miy hu
nmde a magnifkent impression. Mr. Blaine
appeals to feel no dlsapi o.iitment
over his failuio to bo nominated.
Tlio hearty manner in winch he speaks
of Harrison and Morton and his ann mi/cod
determination to go upon the stump in Mainu
this , month and continue speaking until thu
November election is an indication that lie
lias his wlioli ) soul In tlio success of tlio
ticket. Mr. Blaine made many friends on
shipboard coming over hero. He eoimngled
with the passengers and talked cordially and
in an unofficial manner upon nil subjects. It
is not true that the republican memljors of
the committee on finance have deferred com
pletion of their tariff bill for the coming of
Mr. Blaino. The delay Is duo solely to" the
demand for hearings from Important indus
trial interests and special icijuests made by
loading senators oiuliotli sides of thi > chamber
f < delav that they iniiv bo ctmbl"d to commu
nicate with their constituents n-i to what they
especially desire in the way of protection.
There is no doubt as to Mr. Blame's position
on the taniT issue. Ho is a high protectionist
and considers tlio Chlcniro platform a model
ono. Mr. Blaine bus stated HIIK-I > ins arrival
in New York that the declarations of the re
publican platform as to internal taxes are
exactly right , ana that ho dons not consider
the party pledged to tlio removal of the ta <
on whisky in any event. He says that the
clause on this subject nhould bo taken ex
actly for what it says , thai rather than give
up llm protective features of the import
duties it would bo better to abolish all of the
internal tu\es. Ho says that there should
be some of the surplus devoted to Internal
Improvements. Ho favors the construction
of ttio Hennepin canal and many oilier en
terprises of similar character.

Although Hugh Brooks , alias Maxwell , hn
been hanged in St. Louis his easy is still tlio
subject of much comment here. A gentio-
man connected with ono of tlio foreign lega
tions said to-day that from a diplomatic
standpoint a gruvo error lias been committed
which is liltciy to redound to tlio disadvan
tage of some American citizen who may bo
imprisoned in KuropiS in tlio future.
"Governor Moorchouau undoubtedly did
right in ignoring the request of Sir Lionel
West for a stay of proceedings. As far ai
the governor of Missouri was concerned Mr.
West Is ( .imply u British subject whoso re
quests nro entitled to the consideration of any
other person and no more. Missouri bus no
direct diplomatic relatlnns with England ,
and its clilut magistrate y > uld bo ignored by
the British foreign onico it he should ask for
a reprieve for a citizen of Missouri con
demned to death m ono of the British pos-
SL-sjions that is to say , if ho should make
the request direct and not throuch the cus
tomary diplomatic channel. But tha Britisii
authorities made their request In regular
form , tlnough the state department. Now
it would ecm that international comity
would have led Mr. Baynrd to make some
recommendations In forwardingthorequcstof
Mr. Wen. But instead of rtning so ho scorns
to have carefully abstained from doing any-
thh.fr of the kind. His note of transmlttal
appears to bo about as discourteous as it
could bounder tlio circumstances , and to an
outsider it looks as though ho had an object
in violating all the diplomatic proprieties. "
His Idea has taken deep root in other
placts. Evidently thn administration did
not propose to do i anything , at tins stage ol
the canvas , which eouid bo construed into a
fiiondly turn towards Great Biitam.
