Unmerciful Disaster Follows the
Lottor-Writing Englishman.
Arid IN 1'olltcly Informed That Ills
BcrvlccH Arc no Lotiucr Accepta
ble to the United States
Bnckvlllc Asked to Vacate.
WASHINGTON , Oct. 30. By direction of the
president , the secretary of state to-day in
formed Lord Sackvltlo that for causes here
tofore made known to her majesty's govern
ment his continuance In his present otllclal
position in the United States is no longer ac
ceptable to this government , und would con
sequently be detrimental to the relations be
tween the countries.
The grounds for this action on the part of
the United States are stated in the report of
the secretary of state to the president , dated
the tUth ! inst. , which Is us follows :
Dr.i'Aimiii.NT oi' STATE To the President :
The undersigned has the pleasure to submit
for your consideration the following state
ment , with u view to receive your direction
thereon. On the 4th of September last a let
ter , purporting to be written by one Charles
F. Murehison , dated at Pomona , Cal. , was
sent from that place to the British minister
ut this capital , in which the writer solicited
the expression of his views in regard
to certain unsettled diplomatic questions
between Great Britain and the United
States , starting at the name time that such
expression was sought by him for the pur-
pone of determining his vote ut the up-
proachlng presidential election. He stated
that he was u naturall/ed cltl/cn of the
United States , of English birth , but that ho
still considered England the mother country ,
and this fact led him to seek advice from the
British representative in this country. Ho
further stated that the Information ho
sought was not for himself alone , but to
enable him to give certain assurances to
many other persons In the same situation as
himself for the purpose of influencing and
determining their political action as citizens
of the United .States of English birth , but
who still regarded their original obligations
of allegiance as paramount. The letter also
contained gross reflections upon the conduct
of this government in respect to questions
now in controversy and unsettled between
the United States and Great Britain ,
and both directly and Indirectly Imputed
insincerity in such conduct. To this letter
the British minister nt once replied from
Beverly , Mass. , under date of September lil ,
last. In his reply ho stated that "any po
litical party which openly favors the mother
country at the present moment would lose
positively , und that the party In power is
fully aware of this fact ; nnd that in respect
to the questions with Canada which have
been unfortunately reopened since the rejec
tion of the fisheries treaty by the republican
malorlty in the senate and by the president's
message , to which you allude , allowances
must bo made for the political situation as
regards the presidential election. " The
minister thus travo his assent und sanction
to the aspersions and imputations above
referred to , and thus , under his
correspondent's assurance of secrecy , in
which the minister concurred by marking
his answer "private , " ho undortoolc to art-
vise a citizen of the Unltod States how to
exercise the franchise of suffrage In the elec
tion close at hand for the presidency and
vice presidency of the United States , aud
through him , us the latter suggested , to in
fluence the votes of ninny others. Upon this
correspondence being made public the minis
ter received representatives of the public
press , nnd in frequent Interviews witti him ,
intended for publieution , added to the Im
pugnments which he hud already made of
the good faith of this government In Its pub
lic action and international dealings.
Although ample time and opportunity has
been offered him for u disavowal , modifica
tion , or correction of the statements , to some
of which his attention wus called by the un-
ncrslgncd , yet no sueh.dlsavowul or modifi
cation has been Mi by him through the
channels which lift IO tements first found
publicity. The question is thus presented
whether It Is compatible with the dignity ,
security nnd independent sovereignty of the
United States to permit a representative of a
foreign government In this country not only
to recolvo and answer without disapproval
and confirm by his repetition aspersions
upon Its political action , but also to interfere
in its domestic affairs by advising persons
formerly his countrymen as to their political
course ns citizens of the United States. As
between this country and Great Britain
there can bo no controversy , ns there is n
complete severance of the tics of original
allegiance by naturalization. Disputes on
this point were finally put at rest by the
treaty of naturalization concluded by the
two countries on May 13 , 1887. Therefore it
will not bo contended , nor was nuch conten
tion ever admitted by us , that the citizens of
the United States , ollBritish origin , are sub
ject to any claim of the country of their
original allegiance.
The undersigned also has the honor to call
attention to this provision of section 6335 of
the revised statutes of the United States :
Who , without authority or permission of this
government , "commences or curries on any
verbal or written correspondence or Inter
course with any foreign government , or any
officer or agent thereof , " either with Intent
to Influence the action of such government
or Its agents or with Intent to defeat the
measures of the government of the United
States. Penalties are made equally applica
ble to every citizen of the United States , not
duly authorized , who "counsels , advises ,
or assists in any such correspondence
with similar unlawful intent. " The
undersigned respectfully advises that the at
tention of the attorney general of the United
States be directed to these enactments , in
order that an investigation may bo made
with a view to ascertain whether they have
not been violated In the present case by the
correspondence of the British minister. By
your direction the attention of the British
government hat : , in a spirit of comity , been
called to the conduct of Its minister , asalovo
described , but without result. It therefore
becomes necessary for this government to
consider , when , as guardian of Its own. self-
respect and of the Integrity of its institu
tions , it will permit further intercourse to be
held through the present British minister at
this capital. It Is to bo observed that pre
cedents are not vrantlngas to the question un
der consideration. It is a settled rule , essential
to the maintenance of International inter
course , that a diplomatic representative must
bo persona grata to the government to which
tie Is accredited. If , by his conduct , ho ren
ders himself persona non-grntn an announce
ment of the fact may bo made to his govern
ment. In the present case. U the require
ments of comity have been fulfilled and the
facts huvo been duly communicated to her
majesty's government , with an expression ol
the opinion of this government In regard
thereto. Respectfully submitted ,
How the Sackvillo Incident Is Re
garded Across the Water.
[ Copt/rfu'iUSSSbi/ Gordon /tenmt'.l
LONDON , Oct. 30. [ New York Herald
Cable S | > eclal to THE BEE , | H is well un
dcrstood that the communication made to
Lord Salisbury by Mr. Phelps was to the of
feet that the government of the United
States lokcd upon the Indiscretion commit
ted by Sackvillo as fatal to his further use
fulness as n British minister. 'Tho suggea
tlou was , therefore , thrown out that U might
bo a friendly act on the part of Great Brit
aln to supersede him at as little loss of time
as IMsslbla _ Phclpst .representation * wort
received most'amcably ( by Salisbury , who
jnado , no attempt to 'excuse .or justify
tbo letter. Ho , however , pointed , ou
l-'tbat the minister had not designedly
offense to the Uultcd-States
: given govern-
aeut or to the people , aud that during tlu
on years he has lived fit Washington ho had
Uways i preserved friendly relations with
everybody , public nnd private. The govern
ment regretted very much the indiscretion
vhlch ho hud been- guilty of , but was very
reluctant to Inflict so severe a penalty for It
ns to recall a minister who served his coun-
ry so faithfully for forty years.
Mr. Phelps again pointed out what might
easily have overlooked as nn Indiscre
tion In ordinary times became serious on the
eve of a presidential election , when party
'ccllng was running high and the interfer
ence of n foreign minister would naturally
irovoko bitter resentment.
Lord Salisbury fully admitted the gravity
of this consideration , and I understand that
substantially he admitted the possibility ol
returning Lord Salisbury against the wish of
: ho American government.
On Monday some further messages were
exchanged between Washington and London ,
ind again thin morning , nnd as a final result
t is settled beyond doubt that Lord Sack-
villo will resign or will bo lecallcd at an
curly date.
It Is probubly felt by the ministry that If
mmcdiuto concessions were not made at
.his point there would bo a strong
feeling expressed in parliament on the
subject , debate would assuredly arise ,
ind in the event of the government refusing
; o act promptly it might bo defeated. As
for the suggestion that Sackvillo wrote the
foolish letter In collusion with the British
government , nnd that it Is a part of a con-
iplracy to secure the re-election of Cleve-
und , everybody is nstounded that it could
lave found u moment's credence In the
United States. The ministry here were pro
foundly annoyed ou hearing of Lord Sack-
vlllo's letter , which they did through the
[ mbllc press , und not ono word has been ut
tered In defense of It. Moreover , Salisbury's
colleagues have never done anything moro
than to endeavor to maintain u cordial un
derstanding with Mr. Cleveland , as they
would with Harrison if he were elected. It is
i matter of entire indifference to them which
candidate wins , and In no way whatever have
they the power or inclination to influence the
course of election. No public man in Eng
land is so insane as to suppose that any par-
; y in this country could effect the issues next
Tuesday , and the Idea of money being used
by the Cobden club or any other organization
is so supremely ridiculous thut It would not
te mentioned in any public meeting In Eng
land without exciting roars of laughter. By
rashly posing his government to injurious
suspicions ut so critical n time , Lord Sack
villo must bo well aware that he has forfeited
the confidence of the English people , und
will have to take the consequence for his
want of common sense.
Iho Icc-Iiouiid Whalers.
\VASIIINO ro.v , Oct. 30. Acting Secretary
Thompson to-day received a long telegram
from San Francisco , signed by Senator
Hearst and others , informing him of the per
ilous situation of the crews of about a dozen
whalers supposed to have been wrecked near
Herald island , in the Arctic ocean , nnd ask
ing that u revenue steamer bo sent at once
to their assistance. There are said to bo
nearly five hundred men In the party , and
they , are in no condition to withstand the
rigors of the Arctic ocean.
Acting Secretary Thompson visited the
white house during the day und luid the mat-
ier before the president. The president sent
for Commodore Harmony , acting secretary
of the navy , and instructed him to take im-
: nedlate steps for the relief of the sufferers.
Commodore Harmony said he would endeavor
to communicate with Commander Emery ,
commanding the United States steamer
Thetis , now cruising In the Arctic , nnd which
is expected to arrive in San Francisco in a
short time. The present plan is to tit the
vessel out-far a relief expedition as soon as
she arrives at Sun Francisco and to hasten
her arrival there with thut in view.
Moonlight Wauta Ills Head.
LAIUMIE , Wyo. , Oct. 30. [ Special Tele
gram to THE BEE. ] Territorial Auditor
Grunt , whoso homo is In this city , was to
day informed by Governor Moonlight that
his resignation would bo acceptable. Grant
is a holdover republican , owing to the fact
that the legislature failed to confirm the
democrat nominated ns his successor by
Moonlight. The reason assigned for re
questing the resignation is that Mr. Grant
Is an offensive partisan , ho being chairman
of the Albany county central comm itteo and
a prominent man In politics of the territory.
Mr. Grant wus appointed auditor in March ,
1SS5 , by Governor Warren. His resignation
will not be forthcoming , as the governor is
powerless to remove him , u similar case hav
ing been decided by the supreme court of

ninlnc nt Albany.
AMHNY , N. Y. , Oct. 30. Since the "Tip-
pecunoe and Tyler , too , " campaign neither
this old Knickerbocker town nor the sur
rounding countryside has known such a
demonstration as that today furnished by
the republicans of Albany and Troy. Farmer
folks , In vehicles new full many years ago ,
began coming down out of the Hlldcrbcrg
mountains this forenoon. Chartered craft
brought people Jfrom up and down the river.
Trains on four railways brought excursions.
The people of the towns turned out Into the
streets , nnd the activity usual at the times of
the legislative sessions was exceeded and
eclipsed. The weather was favorable , and
the air clear and crisp. The orator , James
G. Blalne , had been announced to speak at
the fair grounds , and there the country folk
nnd city people repaired at an early hour.
The train on which Blaine was coming
from New York w.vs duo at 2)0p. : ! ) m. , and
was prompt. The depot was thronged and
the street approaches were packed with pee
ple. The Grant club was In charge of the
demonstration , nnd Senator Henry Uussell ,
the millionaire representative of the Minne
apolis flouring interests , was waiting with
his carriage for the city's guest.
Upon leaving the train .Mr. Blaine was
driven away by Senator Hussell , while the
crowd cheered , nnd the others of the party
were conveyed in other carriages. They
were Walker Blaine , Judge A. W. Tenny ,
Senator C. P. Veddcr , Dwight Lawrence ,
General Adam E. King , of Maryland , Gen
eral S. B. Hastings of Pennsylvania , and
Colonel Coburn of Pennsylvania. Great en
thusiasm greeted Blaine and his party as
they drove upon the fair grounds , where , it
is estimated. UO.OOO persons were gathered.
Throngs followed the carriages until they
became wedged in the masses about the
stand where Blaine was to speak.
Blaine , though he said ho was not at his
bo t physically , spoke clearly and strong ,
and that ho was heard was evidenced by frequent -
quent demonstrations far in the crowd. Hon.
1. Martin Townsend of Troy presided and
introduced him. When Mr. Blaine had fin
ished speaking , addresses were made by
Judge Tenny und General Hastings , of
Mr. Blaine started for the city at 450 p.
m. in Hon. C. M. Depew's private car , for
Now York. Mr. Blaine said :
Fellow Citizens : But for my treat dcslro
to visit this part of New York to-day , I
would have sent a telegram excusing myself ,
for I am not quite fit to bo hero , especially
not fit to aadress so vast an audience as this.
But I could not deny myself the pleasure of
coming here , if only for the purpose of mak
ing my excuse in person , nnd in addition
to that of exchanging congratulations with
this vast audience of republicans on the
prospects of the republican party throughout
the union , and to remind it that if there bo
responsibility upon any republican it lies tenfold
fold upon the republicans In Now York. The
post of honor and of responsibility rests with
you , and if the republican voters come to'tfie
polls on Tuesday next , rain or shine. ? bc3

weather , Benjamin Harrison and Lev ! P.
Morton will be the next president and vice
president. | Cheers. ]
It is almost too late for argument , but I
wish in the moment or two that I shall stand
before you to give you one , and to give it in
n very suggestive mode , not , from myself but
from another ; not from an American but
from an Englishman. If it bo lawful in the
ancient Komans to learn from an enemy.
it Is certainly lawful in these modern times
to learn from a commercial rival. I hold in
my hand a clipping from a recent Issue of
the London Morning Post , n'well known and
prominent organ In England , and the organ
of the lato.Lord Palmerstono , an influential
paper , advocating hitherto , as all English
papers do , the doctrine of free trade. The
Post is getting a little fatigued with certain
arguments of the free traders. It does not
believe m all tuat is said against the doctrine
of protection , and I am sure that I can in
struct you no more pleasantly than to ask
my friend from Brooklyn , Mr. Tenny , to
read from the editorial whieh I shall hand ,
from the Morning Post.
Mr. Tenny reaa as follows :
"But for us , and the consequence upon
our working classes , who feel over.v
day moro and moro the pinch
of foreign competition , it would
bo decidedly amusing to note how completely
every one of the principles assumed by the
ono sided free trade school of this country is
necutlved by facts and falsified by the ex
perience of commonplace business men.
We are constantly told that protection
raises the price of commodities , and that a
hostile tariff , as John Bright said but u few
days back in a published letter to one. of his
correspondents , is only a tax whlck a com
munity pays to support a particular industry
benefited by it. As a matter of fact , what do
we find In America ) Why , their manufac
turers can actually beat us out of the field
on the score of mere cheapness only. So
far from protection enhancing the cost
of ithcir goods , they can turn
them out at rates with which
wo , with all our free trade ,
cannot manage to compete. The
Yule lockmakcr.s can afford to pay the car
riage of their goods to England and yet
undersell the Wolvcrhnmpton masters , In
the very heart of the lock trade , Just as the
Belgians can quota lower rates for angle
iron delivered in Derby than the local Iron
masters of the midlands. The Philadelphia
engine makers can turn out as serviceable n
locomotive us any English firm , nnd ship it
all the way to Now Zealand for i'OOO ( $3,000) )
less than the English tenders. In south
Hussia the agriculture is said to bo passing
entirely into the hands of American ex
porters in spite of the English nnd German
competitors , though the latter arc nearer by
3,000 miles to the local market. With the
exception of made up clothing , which Is dear
because labor Is highly paid , and not
because the duty on the stuffs is
so heavily there is not a single manufactured
article produced in the United States , from
carpets to cotton , from locomotive engines
to steel axes , from agricultural Implements
to cutlery nnd "Yankee notions , " as many
little domestic appliances are called , which
Is not as cheap or even cheaper there than
in this country. "
Mr. Tenny , having finished reading ,
Blaine resumed :
That Is a most effectual contradiction to
the story which free trade orators have been
telling us during the wholi ) campaign that
the people of the United States uro ground
down by high prices. It Is not so , nnd at
last we get un English witness to admit It.
And I say here that thcro is not ono article
In the United States to-day that is not
far cheaper than it was when protection
wus applied to it not ono , not one and the
argument that Is now closing between pro
tection and free trade Is the argument which
I took pleasure In saying in the first speech
I made In the campaign It is not for capital ;
it is for labor. It U not ono for the rich man ;
U Is ono for the wage earner ; and If It is
lost , it Is lost to the hurt of every man in the
United States who earns his bread in the
bwcat of his face. [ Applauto.l Wo are not
going to have the British minister in Wash
ington tell us how to vote. Wo will not take
instructions from the court of St. Jnmss as
to how wo shall vote on the protective tariff
In America. You are reading u
good deal in the democratic papers Just
now as to Lord Snckville West being re
called. Tno Cleveland administration want
to'iihovv their , indignation for this interview.
It will only take ono word to recall him.
What they .havo been doing Id trying- in
duce the English . prime minister to recall
him. Mr. Phelps , the American minister in
. London , as. we get the news over the cable ,
is dining oUt at Hattielu with Lord Salis
bury , to see If Lord Salisbury" wont relieve
Mr. Cleveland and Mr. IJiyaVd by recalling
Lord Sackvillo. . F" X
Now , my friends , I want > . to say n word
further about Lord Snckvule's1 letter. 1 ob *
serve that Mr. Patrick Collins , of Boston ,
representative In cbngrcB * , ; In an Interview
states that U Is a very rtJnwrkablo circum
stance that Murchlson's letter should have
been written on tho. 3d of September and
Lord Suckvillc's on the 14th , and that it
should have been published In Now York nt
the Irish meeting in Mtulison Square by mo
on the 'Jflth of October. Well , the letter had
been published four days , 'and Lord Sack-
villo had admitted it. andjMr. Bayard had
three times criticised it by.'saylng that it is a
private affair nnd none of his business , nnd
after It had become , In the lahgungo of the
boys of to-day , a chestnut. I referred to it in
n public meeting , and novy Mr. Collins says
that it is the most remarkable conspiracy of
modern times. [ Applause and laughter. ]
Anything to get It off their shoulders. It Is
bothering them. No republican administra
tion ever had the intervention of a British
minister , and never wilt No advocate of
protection In this country ever had the sym
pathy ot a British minister , and never will.
[ Applause. ]
The American doctrine of protection ,
upheld by the republican party , finds
no support nt the hands of Englishmen or
English ministers , nnd what wo contend is
that self-respect Is the flrlt law of nations as
it is of men , and that wQlIc England would
resent to the last degree $ iy Intervention in
her domestic affairs by ( ti American minis
ter , so should we resent the least interven
tion in our domestic affair * by a British min
ister. As lone as no is ajBritish minister ho
is entitled to the respect of the whole Ameri
can people. Diplomatic rcspect is the first
law of all intercourse between nations. Ho
is entitled to every protfction and every re
spect , but he is not enlltled to the right of
intervening in our domestfc affairs. And if
the people want to resent It they can resent
it one week from to-day , and they can resent
it in a very simple way. . They can resent it
by voting for Benjamin Harrison for pros-
ident. [ Great cheering and applause. ]
They can resent , , It by voting
for nrotcction to American manufacturers.
They can resent it by restoring to power
with whoso existence thoj. prosperity of the
United States for twcaty-four years
identified the republican party , which in
peace and in war has held the high honor of
the country under all circumstances. [ Ap
plause. ] (
Now , gentlemen , as IJlmvo said once be
fore , and I repeat it hero , for I want It to
come out , there has been OH attempt by the
democrats to sneer ntf General Harrison.
They call him the grandson of his grand
father. Well , General \Harrison stands , as
much as any man in this , world ever stood ,
on his own merits. Ho , was a young lawyer
that struggled to the front of the bar , un
aided by power or j wealth. Ho was
a soldier , who , on the field of bat
tle , won the approval of that
great general whose approval Is tno highest
title of honor General Grant. When they
attempt to sneer nt a man because ho comes
of a good stuck , I rescnt'it.
After a reference to ( General Harrison's
ancestors , he said : Gentlemen , unless nman
had merit himself I neVer * would quote his
ancestry. But I hurl back the sneer of the
democrats ; I hurl .It In their teeth ,
and there Is not .ono among them
that would not give his eyelids
to have the lineage General Harrison bus ,
nnd whenever a man lives that docs not have
un honest pride In u great and honorable and
patriotic ancestor , ttiatk > raan is dead to some
of the highest attributcs of human pride and
human chaiacter. Noflry gentleman , all that
is in answer to their sneers' . Wo run Ben
jamin Harrison "oh"lit * ownmerits. .
As man , soldier , senator , states
man , republican , a * 'a protectionist ,
ho fills every requirementr ; Ho is the very
embodiment of every'MM that is to-day be
fore the people oh MiUhuthe republican
party take their-posltion:1 : * And I say to you'
again , as I said before , lthat , if you In Nnw
York do your duty on this 'day week ho will
bo the next president of the United Sates.

Spicy Development * Expected.
ST. Louis , Oct. 30. The withdrawal of
Mr. Blnko as gubernatorial candidate of the
union labor party in Missouri has brought to
the surface the alleged true inwardness of
the selection of that gentleman by the execu
tive committee of the party. It is said tnat
the name of O. Manning , who was the orig
inal candidate nominated In the convention ,
was dropped and that * of Mr. Blake substlf
tuted with the understanding that the latter
was to withdraw In favor of the republican
nominee , E. K. Kimball. Mr. Manning now
comes out on a card and says he Is silll the
union labor candidate for governor , and
claims that his name Wai stricken off by the
executive coimnittoo because ho declined to
pay over to the committee $3,030 for cam
paign purposes. Spicy developments are
looked for.
The Cabinet Meeting.
WASHINGTON , Oct. 30. The cabinet meetIng -
Ing to-day lasted about two hours , and was

ant Secretary Thompson , of the treasury.
Commodore Harmony , acting secretary of
the navy , was present ! during a portion of
the session , discussing measures for the re
lief of the whalers Ice ; bound in the Arctic
ocean. The regular pesslon , however , was
devoted mainly to a consideration of the case
of the British minister , and the result Is
shown In the statement furnished to the
press by the secretary of state this evening.
After Secretary Bayard had prepared this
statement ho walked over to the white house
nnd submitted it to the president for his ap
proval. The president perused it carefully
and suggested a few verbal changes In tno
introduction , and when thcso had been made
the members of the press were furnished
with copies of It.

president of the First National bank of
Urokcn How , which was solemnized to-day
nt Christ churchwas the social event ot years
in southeastern Nebr.iska.
By high noon , the hour set for the cere
mony , the church was crowded with the
friends of the contracting parties. The
chancel arch was beautifully decorated with
flowers and smllax and the darkened windows
and burning candles gave all the effect of an
evening wedding. Mrs. Horace Candce , a
musician ot rare talent , presided at the
organ. Precisely at 12 the Ut. Hev. George
Worthlngton , Hishop of the dioccso of Ne
braska , accompanied by Uev. Hobcrt Scott ,
rector of Christ church , emerged from the
vestry and knelt before the altar. A
moment later the organ burst into
the strains of Mendelssohn's Wedding
March and the groom and best man , Mr.
Hen S. Paddock , of Fort Hobinson , Neb. ,
cousin of the bride , advanced to the front of
the altar to meet the bridal 3rocc sion just
entering the door in the following order :
Ushers Messrs. Watson Peckeral , D. G.
Mellor , G. P. Kingsley and W. T. Shelton ;
Bridesmaids Misses Fannie Paddock , Judu
Hobertson , Lizzie Weston nnd Com Penn ;
Maid of honor , Miss F.innio Hlgbeo. The
bride came in on the arm of her father , the
Hon. A. S. Paddock. The bride , an attrac
tive brunette , looked charming in a bridal
gown , the artistic creation of Madame HUB-
sel , a famous modiste of New York. The
front was of ivory white satin In the style
of the court of Louis XYI , so arranged as to
seem a dividing line separating the two sides.
These wore brocaded in cords in the form of
roses , covered with dew. The texture was
relieved nnd broken by a heavy satin
duchcsse almost covered with tiny and grace
fully arranged coquetts of lilies of
the valley. The train , of graceful
length , was made of Algerian satin which
fell in long folds. The perfectly lilting cor
sage was low pointed with sleeves of pearls
trimmed and finished with old point lace
nnd orange blossoms. The neck was also
finished with points aplinuc.
The maid of honor and the two brides
maids were attired in white silk , the other
two in pink faille francaiso. Each were
made with low pointed corsage and short
sleeves and each carried boquets of roses
corresponding in tint with their dresses.
Mrs. Paddock , the mother of the bride ,
looked regal In a gown of pearl brocade
satin on train , trimmed with point lace and
fastened with a diamond pin.
While thTCov. Kubcrt Scott read the pre
liminary marriage service the organ accom
panied the service and responses. The
bishop performed the ceremony with rare
impresslvencss , after which the bridal pro
cession re-formed and taking carriages were
rapidly 'whirledaway * - tothe reception.
Alcmma place , the comfortable homo of Sen
ator Paddock , was beautifully decorated' for
the occasion. The parlors , libra ry and re
ception rooms were profusely adorned with
rose chrysanthemums and smilax , under the
direction of Moore of Plattsmouth. Potted
plants nnd ferns filled the alcoves. The
study was reserved for the orchestra , which
discoursed choice selections from popular
operas during the reception hours. The din
ing room was redolent with the odor of roses
and exotics. On tno table was an exquisite
center pier of fruits and Jlowcrs. The bride
and groom received congratulations under a
pagoda of roses and smilax. MoroMhan five
hundred residents of Beatrice and prominent
citizens of Nebraska City passed through the
handsome parlors during the course of the
reception. Both ushers nnd bridesmaids
wore souvenirs. Those of the ushers , a gift
of the groom , were diamona scarf pins.
The bridesmaid received , with thocompli
ments of the bride , four-leaved clover green
enamelled diamond lace pins. The presents
wore very numerous and elegant , among
them being a deed nnd gift of improved
realty , stock nnd bonds to the amount of
$10,000 , the gift of Senator Paddock to his
daughter , and a case of a hundred pieces of
solid silver table ware from the mother of

The president was visited by n delegation
of prominent democratic politicians from
New York nnd New Jersey yesterday nfter-
loon. They talked with him for upwards of
in hour on the subject of the Sackvillo let
ter. Then they went back to Now York.
This morning Mr. Bayard had an Interview
with the president on the same subject.
Later in the day the secretary Informed
nembers of the press that he would hava
something to give out for publication ut 4
o'clock. At that hour the secretary of state
mstcned over to the white house with a bun- ,
llo of manuscript In his hands. Ho said
that ho would bo back at once , but It wus
nero than an hour bororn ho returned.
When at just ho again reached the depart-
iiont he entered his room and locked himself
In. His assistants were busy with the man
uscript , which had evidently been altered In
nany particulars by the president. At 0
o'clock the child was born. It was furnished
the press associations ntonee and the country
knows what it is. It is difficult to conceive.
of a moro thorough piece of political dema
gogy. The document , on its face , bears
very evidence of having been com-octeu for
political effect. At no other time would
: hero have been such summary und dis
courteous huste.
If the president had directed the secretary
of state to send Lord Sackvillo his passport
mmcdlately after ho acknowledged the au
thorship of the Muschison letter there would
have been no criticism. But ho preferred to
place the matter before Lord Salisbury , and
common diplomatic etiquette would seem to
liavc demanded that ho should wait a reason
able time before proceeding further.
There are several queer incidents about
this matter besides the visit of the politi
cians from New York and New Jersey last
night. There is another thing which
is peculiar at this time. The Sunday
Ga/etto of this city last Sunday contained
a special from New York in which it was as
serted that something would be done about
the Sackvillo letter on Monday or Tuesday ,
and this something would amount to n'pXisU'
live insult to Great Britain. BusldeMhiAM
is noticed that the Bayard letter is" dated '
yesterday. It seems that it was sent oree
last night to thoVrtilto house , revlncd.b/th
in ; ! Bidtiii.ssnf. book to the state department. ,
igaln revised and taken over personally by t
Secretary Bayard , us uiiarc stated.
Every ono who bus heard Of thi
action of the state department to-day says
cither privately or publicly that there can bo
no doubt whatever that it was intended foe
political effect. But it needs not tliii asser
tion to convince oven the most thick-headed
reader what the object wus. The Joint letter
of Secretury Bayard nnd President Clev- '
land to the press boars upon its face the
desperation which those gentlemen feel *
over the political situation and is
convincing argument that the pfesl
nent regards the endorsement of tin
British minister of his administration ua thrf
most powerful factor in opposition to his re
election which possibly could huvo been pro
cured. There is no doubt now that ho will
from this time forward show contempt for
Great Britain but , unfortunately for him ,
his whole administr.i'ion has been so thor
oughly pro-British that he will not bo able .to *
fool the people at this late day by seeming ;
disposition to snub the country where free
trade has its scat. >
