It. IB no disrespect to the retiring board of
the army that convened to-day to examine
Judge Advocate General Swnlm to state
that , although thut olfieor said under oath
thlH afternoon he was not unable to perform
the duties of Ills oIllCLanil was willing to
perform them if ho was pardoned by the
president , ho will be found Incapacitated ,
pardoned mid placed on tlio retired list ,
barring unforsecn Incidents. It lias been de
creed that General Swulm shall be retired
fo two reasons ;
1. To uiulio ti place for n democratic polltl-
'J. To smooth the consciences of those who
wcro responsible for placing him in the
position ho now occupies. So points
will bo stretched to meet the exi
gencies. It has been common comment
among all classes hero ever since Generul
Swalin was found guilty by a court martini
of "conduct unbecoming an officer and a
gentleman" In not paying a dellcit in his
Block speculation account with u brother ,
that Ifho wore guilty lie should have been
dismissed from the army , and , It intioieut ,
acquitted. It was one of these cases where
the accused could not have been a ' 'modi- '
fled" culprit. There lire nil sorts of stories
in circulation nbout who will ho appointed to
the vacancy if General Swalm is retired. It
Is not believed that either Generals Black or
Uoscnerans is eligible , inasmuch ns the for
mer Is drawing a pension for total disability
mid the latter hns Just luul a bill reported
favorably in both houses of congress to place
him on the retired list of the army. Thus
both arc made eligible to the retired list before -
fore they could receive the appoint
ment. The sciiuto would undoubtedly
rcfuso to confirm the nomination
of Black or Hoscncrans on political if on no
other { ( rounds , lilnck is responsible for
innn.v of President Cleveland's vioious and
abusive pension vetoes , and Uoscncraus
abused General Grant around the imlls of
congress in the vilest language tongue can
utter. IJoth believe no good could como
from republicans , and hence it would bo
stultification for n republican senate to con-
llnu the nomination of cither of them.
Judge K.V. . Hughes , of the United States
court for the eastern district of Virginia ,
who Is spolcen of favorably in Virginia and
other parts of the south , us : i ( It representa
tive of the south In President Harrison's
cabinet , is not now nor never has been con
nected in any degree with any of the feuds
or with either of the factions in his party In
Ills state. Tlio judge Is one of the few ox-
eonfedoratos who turned republican after
the war , who is believed by the people ol his
tate to have turned from principle ,
and not for pelf , and who therefore
has retained their confidence and respect.
He was once the editor of the Washington
Union , the accredited organ of the national
democracy , and subsuquutl.v of the Richmond
Examiner , with which tie remained until it
and Richmond and the confederacy wont
down together. From the hour of the down
fall of the confederacy the Judge has devoted
nil his energies to the work of roconcillating
the people of tlio two once hostile sections ,
and should ho bo appointed , his friends say
ho will bo enabled to accomplish more in
that line than would be possible for any
other ono man.
On the ground that the democrats do not
want an extra session , the passage of the bill
preventing an extra session of the Fifty-first
congress , it is believed , will bo reported from
the committee on appropriations. If it is re
ported it will bu passed by botfi houses. Mr.
liundall , chairman of the appropriations
committee , is embarrassed by the situation ,
and he may wait till tlio semite tariff bill is
received by the committee on ways and
means , before he takes up the free tobacco
bill. Meanwhile the democratic members of
the latter committee arc swearing at the
house for not referring the free tobacco bill
to them , knowing at iho same time that it is
notorious that they would not have taken
action upon it , and that that was the reason
it was scat to the appropriations committee.
Senator and Mr. Paddock entertained at a
muslcnlo last night a chosen ! )00 ) of their

A Clnnli of Opinions.
WASHINGTON' , Jan. 17. This morning the
scr.nto sub-committee nn finance , in charge
of the tariff bill , receive : ! delegations ofj carpet -
pot nnd woolen goods manufacturers and
wool growers , the former of whom desired
certain modifications in the wool schedule
tending to a reduction of omo duties , while
the wool growers wanted still additional du
ties levied. The views at time were widely
divergent and expressed with much vigor.
Senator Sherman proposed the following
amendment to trio bill , which the manufac
turers now have under consideration and
will exnress their opinion upon before the
committee to-morrow : Amend paragraph
311 to read as follows ; "Tho duty on wools
of the first and third classes which shall bo
imported washed shall bo twice the amount
to which they would bo subjected if imported
unwashed , The duty upon wools of tlio second
end class , which shall be imported washed ,
shall be 5 cents per pound additional to the
duty to which they would bo subjected if im
ported unwashed. Washed wools arcdcllued to
bo such ns arc washed in cold water on the
backs of sheep. The duty on wools of tills
class which shall bo Imported scoured shrill
bo three times the duty to which they
would bo subjected if impo'-tcd unwashed.
All wools which , when imported , shnll con
tain less than 1'J per cent of weight thereof
ofgretise , dirt or other foreign substance of
matter , shnll bo classified us scoured wool
and pay duty accordingly , "
Before they left the room some of the man
ufacturers asserted that such an amendment
meant practical destruction to their Indus
tries , and that as against it they would work
for free wool.

take some action to-day in regard to the de

should bo made on live hogs and packing

PAIUS , Jan. 17. [ Now York Herald Cable
Special to TUB HUB. | The publication
of the Homans' story in the Paris edition of
tlio Herald caused great excitement , es
pecially among the Americans. Mrs. Ho
mans Is much excited , so is the Italian
prince , who talks nbout n duel. Mrs. Ho-
mans was seen yesterday In her elegant
apartments overlooking the Arc do Trlompe.
She Is Indeed n beautiful woman , and her ac
cent shows her create origin. She was in
tears and hysterics , but composed
herself in n surprisingly short time
and told the Herald correspondent that
she was the victim of a horrid
intrigue of her husband's ' children by his
first wife. She denied breaking Into his
room in Brussels , and said that Mr. Homans
was willing that she should bo there and
that his family was trylnc to blacken her
name , in order to obtain all the property.
"Kxcusing my frankness , but Is there no
more delicate reason ! " I naked.
"I do not deny my guilt. For several
years 1 have had a lover , but before I took a
step I had given Mr. Homans solemn warn
ing that such was my intention , nnd what is
more , Mr. Hoinuns know perfectly well
during these years that I had a lover. You
ask mo how such a thing is possible. I will
tell you. They have not spared mo ,
nor ' will I now spare them.
It was because there was a
ghastly skeleton In the inner life of tlvc fam
ily. I know this , and Mr. Homans know it ,
and that is why ho was blind to my linson up
to the time of discovery. I call God to
witness I had been n faithful , loving wife ,
but I was stung to the quick by this out-
ruseous treatment I became reckless , des
perate. Finding my love- for an unloving
husband growing cool , I made my first step
in the wronir direction. 1 did this almost
without concealment. "
"IJut if Mr. Homans tolerated this liason
so long , why did he finally denounce it
nnd "
"Becauso ho had been influenced against
me so by the intrigues of his family ns to
wish to leave his money to them and not to
me. Ho therefore looked upon a divorce
simply as a menus of severing his financial
obligations to mo. "
Mrs. Homans' daughter , by her first hus
band , a beautiful girl of nineteen , listened
to her mother's edifying remarks during the
conversation. _
Certain Statements From Wnshln -
toii Said to lie Unrounded.
ICom/rlahtlSSSbuJiiintx / ( Jordan Hennttt. ]
LONDON , Jan. 17. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to THE BEn.l A statement
having been made hero to the effect that Sec
retary liayard hud recalled the invitations
which he had addressed to various govern
ment ofllcials to take purlin the international
maritime conference , "owing to certain de
mands made by Great Britain , " I thought it
right to ascertain for you the exact facts
from the very best authority. Whether or
not Bayard has recalled the invitations is , of
course , better Inown in Washington than in
London , but I nm able to give explicit con
tradiction to the statement that Great Brit
ain has made any demands of a nature
to throw obstacles In the way
of the proposed conference project
original in an act of congress , nnd no ob
jection was made with a view of deciding
certain questions connected with the rules
at sea , lights , and other matters relative to
the practical work of navigation. To such
points alone was the action of the conference
to bo confined. That has been well under
stood on nil sides. When , however , action
had proceeded a little further it found cer
tain dinicultlcs with regard to the applica
tion of principles likely to bo discussed.
Great Britain , as the possessor of the great
est mercantile marine In the world , could
scarcely by called upon to accept proposals
which might have the effect of interfering
with the ordinary course of trade.
There has not been any disagreement .be
tween the two governments on the sub
ject. No "demands" have been made on
one side or rejected on the other. It Is found
in effect that the conference was impractic
able , and if held could lead to no useful re
sults for the present. Therefore it is in
abeyance , but I am assured that the British
government is perfectly willing at any time
to discuss an arrangement with a view to
the safety of vessels at sea , or any other
question of Interest to the powers , which are
engaged in carrying on International com
merce. If the conference provided for by
the act of congress breaks down it simply
will bo owing to the fact that the scheme
would not work , and that practical men
speedily recognized the fact when it came to
bo closely examined.
The statement mode by correspondents nt
Washington , therefore , are much exag
gerated , if not wholly unfounded.

contributed over flKK ) to further its purpose.
One hundred and fifty million vavcs of tnrlff
statements and arguments have been sent
out to the states and territories.
Congressman Morrow spoke of "The Pa-
cine Const , Its Developments Under the Pro
tective Tariff. " Having touched upon the
Increased production of wool , raisins , fruits
mineral and sugar , Mr. Morrow said :
"Even the bourbonlsm ol free trade
hesitates ut this point and admits that tlio
spirit of democracy requires American
sugar. Let us maintain faith , and In n fuw
years every pnund of sugar consumed in the
United States will bo the product of ourown
soil nnd the reward of our own labor. I
want to impress upon you the Important
nud growing Interests of the P.iclllc
coast and its increasing power as a policy In
the whole country a power that insists dis
tinctly upon tha principle of protection for
the bcnetil of her pconlo and the develop
ment of her Industrial wealth. "
Hon. ,1. F. Hanson , of Gcont.i , In
speaking to the toast , "Two Souths , "
and having referred to the recent
campaign , said : "If the results of thnt cam
paign , as they indicate public judgment and
public opinion , will amount to anything , the
republican party is under a mandate from
the people to cut up the internal revenue
sysloni by the roots and secure tlio perma
nency of the American policy of
protection. Thut the political south
proposes to destroy the protective system
no man of candor and Intelligence will deny.
In view of this purpose the man or party
who will save the political south from itself ,
and save the country from the political
south , will best promote the Interests
of the south and the country. If the
cause of protection fails in this
country it will fall at the hands of the solid
south. "

JACKSON , Miss. , Jan. 17. A letter will ap
pear in to-morrow's issue of tlio New Mis-
sissippiun from S. 1) . Chambcrlin , from
Shngulnk , in which that gentleman confirms
the report made in these dispatches lust
night of outrages on negro families in Kem-
pos and Noxubo counties , perpetrated by
what ho terms "u mob composed of the most
depraved and irresponsible part of our com
munity , " which has been for tbre'c weeks
robbing and plundering defenseless women
nnd children and. driving them
from their homes without checker
or hindrance. Crimes , he says , have been
committed that the outside world would not
dream of. Brutes , feeling no restraint of
law and honor , have endeavored to see how
deep they could steep themselves in infamy.
The people who have been driven from their
homes had by years of industry and econ
omy paid for their lands and little supplies.
They have committed no crime , unless it is a
crime to bo born black. These who sent to
him yesterday for protection had been noti
fied to leave within live days , and are now
struggling through mud nnd rain to save
their wor'dly store from vandals.
Mr. Chamborlln calls for a repression of
these outrages , mid says that the governor
ought to uluco those people back on their
farms and protect them , if it takes all the
militia of the state. It is staled that Gov
ernor Lowrey is about to tulio active steps
in the matter.
