forty first class tloUct holders In fourteen
couches , each man having n camp stool , de

newspaper men traveled In car No. 01 , which
also conveyed 13ml P . Konium and a number
of attaches and some of tboso moro Inti
mately connected with the coining fight.
Section two steamed out at 13 o'clock , con
taining about eighteen hundred $10 excur
sionists , and at .2:30 : the third section , of
eighteen cars , left with tun same number ,
No man was allowed to pans the barrier
without producing a tloKot. There was n
terrific crowd' the depot , but fairly good
order was maintained. Unless something
tinforsccn occurs Honey Island , sixty-two
miles northwest of New Orleans , an island
Jn tlio Pearl river , belonging to the chair
man of the republican stuta central committee -
too , will bo the buttle ground. It in neutral
ground on the line of Louisiana and
Mississippi. Governor Nichols called out
battery B , Louisiana artillery , who have
boon under arms all day. They may stop
the light from taking place in Louisiana.
'Jlio Western Union will take no messages
nt any adjacent ofllcoto thosccnoof the light ,
wherever it comes oft. Honey island has no
telegraph ofllcc , mid the nearest Is thirteen
miles away. Communication with the main
land Is by ferry.
Sullivan has been under lock and key since
Friday. Ho Is reported to bo in aplendid
form , but gaining Hush every day.

follow up the first section and will in person
direct the troops. "
The press reports will bo elaborate , having
ten men working.
Information has been received in Now
Orleans saying Kilrain and Sullivan reached
their destination at 0 o'clock. This would
confirm the rumor that Honey Island is the
battle ground Kilrain and Mitchell when
leaving the Southern club this evening made
f .iort speeches , Kllraln laughingly remark-
"I will bo bncic , boys , with good news. "

Sunday In New Orleans.
Niv ; OIU.EANS , July 7. There Is nothing
of Sunday character about the aspect of this
city to-dny. The streets are crowded with
people who have coma to witness the great
Inlll. The demand for scats in the Inner
ring was BO great this morning by 10 o'clock
lhat the entire capacity of the ring , 800 scats ,
has been disposed of. Speculators , however ,
.ud inner ring tickets for sulo at prices
kinging from $25 to ? 4l ) . Colonel Oarrott ,
general southern passenger a out of the
Queen & Crescent , estimates that there will
bs " ,500 people on the ground , and that the
gate receipts will appioximnte $30,000. Of
this amount the railroad company will
only received 53 n ticket , say $5,000 In all ; the
remainder will bo divided between the com
binations utter llrst deducting expenses. If
from any cause the fight is prevented , pur
chasers of tickets will got all their money
back but $3 for actual railroad fare. The
proceeds of the gnto money will bo divided as
follows i Sixty per cent to the winner and
forty per cent to the loser.
Sullivan continues to bo the favorite of the
talent , but public sentiment , that is to say
public ! sentiment which is backed by
principle and uot by money , Is all In
favor of Kilrain. The genteel clement of thn
community are almost unanimously In favor
Dl Kilrain. They consider thn Uoston boy as
nothing baiter than a brute and want to see
him whlppcu , but they are not inclined to
buck thulr preference. At the clubs to-day
Ihu general sentiment was : "Wo hope Kll-
tain will win , " but when hots were offered
. i ho clubmen wanted two to one ,
At Sullivan's headquarters there was no
departure from tlio usual oilof quiet conll-
lenco Sullivan passed n lazy and luxurious
ny. His appotlta is enormous. For brouk-
i t ho ate a good sized broiled buss , tlvo
loft-boiled eggs , half a loaf of gruhuuv.
" bread and half a dozen sliced tomatoes.
The only llnuld ho took wan a cup of tea.
After breakfast Muldoon guvo him a shave ,
luring the caurso of which ho fell asleep and
Jti that condition Muldoon loft him. At 1
o'clock ho dined , consuming his usual quota
if three chickens , with rica and chicken
broth and half u loaf of bread.
There Is still soma conflict of opinion as to
Kllraln's condition. Souio think ho is too
tat , ethers too loan. Mho Associated press
f cportur asitcd Tom Allen , the famous pugi
list , for his opinion. Ho said : "I am for
M'Tio reporter than requested his opinion at
to iCilrain'B rendition. Allen replied :
"Jt Is good , but 1 would Ilka him bettor If
to wera not so fat. I like to BOO the check
tones wtlcklng out. "
v So there you are. The talent generally
consider Kllraln too light , and I'om Allen
thinks him too heavy. Everybody is at sea
nod betting is taking curious shoots. Hots
ire bning mode that Sullivim will win In less
than six rounds. Thus far little money has
boon wagered hero. The Kilrain men Insist
on adds of two to one. The other gidu uro
willing to concede $100 to ST5 , but there is no
disposition to closunt thosu figures ,

W\BiuNaTON. D. C. , July 7.
It looks very much as It Senator Spoonor
iad made another hit In the office peeking
line und found a place for his follow towns
man and political tutor , H. D. Taylor , of
Hudson , Wis. Ever since the Inauguration
of President Harrison Mr. Spoonor has been
ooking for some office for Taylor , and has
: ho active backing of Senator Sawyer and
Secretary Hush , but until his return from
Europe ho was unsuccessful. When ho got
back to Washington ho went to the president
and explained how Important It wns to the
iiarty In Wisconsin and to himself personally
lo have Taylor taken care of. II. C. Pnino ,
of Milwaukee , was on hand to corroborate
his statements. Mr. Spoonor asked that a
vacancy bo made In the office of commis
sioner of railroads to bo filled by his friend.
This office , ever since it was created three or
lour years niro , has been bold by General
Joseph Johnston , the real hero and the mili
tary leader of the confederacy , and General
Sherman's ' opponent in his march to the sea.
Commissioner Johnston , like all other promi
nent officials of the old administration , sent n
formal letter of resignation to President Harrison
risen on the 4th of March , for it wns the
custom to do so , but ho was anxious to re
tain the office , oven If ho wns n democrat ,
and Lo got nil his friends to use their in
fluence to prevent its ncceptance. Among
others who interested themselves in his bo-
tmlf wns General Tecumseh Sherman , who
came to Washington , dined nt the white
house , und mudo a special request of the
president to retain General Johnston in his
office. General Sherman said this was all
ho would ask of the administration , and ho
begged very bard. Whllo the president did
notmaku any promise , General Sherman
came away with the impression that Johnston
would not bo disturbed , nnd ho will be a
good dual surprised when ho learns through
the papers thai his resignation wns accepted
by the president yesterday , to tnko effect on
the IStti of July , when it is understood that
Mr. Taylor , of Wisconsin , will succeed him.
HUUT HIS FEJtBIAX VANITY.
It is said that the true caiibo of the indig
nation of the Persian minister is not so much
the newspaper comments on the habits and
character of his royal master , but bis own
wounded vanity. Ho is a man of the highest
rank In his own country , where ho is n'ccus-
tomcd to receive a great deal of doferencu
and attention , the natives prostrating them
selves as he passed along the street nnd per
forming acts of respect which a genuine
American , however humble , docs not often
indulge in , but instead of being received
with great honor nud being a lion in thu di
plomatic menagerie hero the Persian minis
ter has not been courted ut nil. By reason
of his rank and tbo date of his commission
bo comes at the end of the diplomatic pro
cession , with the representatives of the
smaller nations of Europe and the little
South American republics in advance of him.
Ho has not received many inflations to din
ner and has not attracted anywhere near as
mucn attention or received so much hospital
ity as the curious looking Coreans. Another
fact that has grievously wounded his pride
is that ho 1ms been regarded us a colored
man , when ho believes himself a Caucasian
nnd his ucoplo to bo the fathers of the whole
Caucasian race. His face is about the color
of the light side of a piece of shoo leather ,
and If he did not dress In Turkish costume
ho would bo recognized on the street us a

It appears that Miss Mary C. Fuller , the

studying in Germany and returned yester
day , is moro seriously ill than her friends
supposed. Her father and mother , with some
otncr members of the family , went down the
bay yestordn.v morning at 0 o'clock to receive
her. They were given the use of the revenue
cutter by tbo government and intended to
bring her to Now York on that vessel , hut
she was too ill to bo moved until the steamer
reached the dock in Hoboken , when she was
taken to Jersey City and from there to Wash
ington , where she arrived last night. Al
though her illness is not necessarily danger
ous , it bemi ; nervous prostration , tlio physi
cians say that rest und quiet are absolutely
essential to her recovery.

TUB NlitV STAMPS ,
"What is the idea for advertising for pro
posals for a smaller postage stamp than those
now in use ) " wan a question put to Third
Assistant Postmaster General Huzen by your
correspondent Saturday. General Huzen re
"It is not yet decided whether the smaller
stamp shall bo substituted for thu larger onu ,
but the chance In color will entail some addi
tional expense , and I think that this can bo
reduced again by thu proposed reduction in
size , that is to say , the cost of the higher
priced iuks which it Is proposed to usoontho
smaller stamp will bo ollbct by the smaller
quantity required. "
"Has there been any particular demand
for u smaller sized posjago alamo I"
"No ; the size does nut seem 'a nave
troubled tbo general public. It wui tbo < ; olcr
of the 2-cent variety against which tie y.'Q
test wus made. "
"When was It decided to change Its colorl' '
"Tho fate of the 'sickly palo green' wus
decided eouio months ago , It has been ouly
a question as to Just when the changu should
bo mudo , and we decided to wait until a now
contract was awarded. "
There wus n time some years ago when tlio
United States used a smaller stamp than that
now in voguo. It wus durlnu the period
wheu Instead of vicnoltca the stumps were
adorned with BinalllhUtorlcul pictures. Thl
Issue did not last very long , and It Is quite
probable that if n change Is mudo to a smaller
Ftamp ugaln It will not bu followed by the

4i" > ao scene * tor the head of proiulneut
Americans , which have become features of

TIME snuvitr ! ,
"Tho ono thing that strikes mo ns qulto
strange , " said an old haugor-on around the
departments , "Is the roniafknblo difference
in the utterances of a class Of clerks In the
departments from Indiana within the past
few months. There wore no more offensive
ly partisan democrats' than these Indiana
follows all last Bummer. They scoffed nt
the civil service law , sneered at the republi
can nominee , swore by Voorhees , and de
clared their unqualified hatred to everything
with the name of republican attached , ana
openly boasted that their resignations would
bo at tlio disposal of their superiors the mo
ment that the political atmosphcro In the
white house should change. I have noticed ,
however , that these same Indiana
people nro the quietest lambs in
the departmental service to-day. Thcro
were three or four who used to gather every
afternoon In front of a restaurant on ono of
the side streets , and their denunciation ! ! of
the republican party nnd their laudation of
Voorhees and the sainted Hcndricks could
bo hoard for blocks. This little party seems
to hnvs thrown up Its charter , and no more
gatherings are held now. In fact each of the
crowil seems Dent on getting his meals as far
away from his follows as possible. I think
that their work In the dcuartracnt Is very
much better than it used to be , and I have no
doubt that the public service Is bcnolUtcd to
that extent , but it shows how easy It is for
men to change tholr political opinions , or at
least to smother them when they fear that
their broad und butter is In danger. It Is
only another evidence of the demoralizing
effect upon the manhood of a man which a
government position has. "

An Invitation to Reorganize the Party
WASIUNOTOK , July 7 , George O. Jonos.
chairman of the national greenback party ,
has issued an invitation requesting all per
sons who desire to aid in reorganizing the
uational greenback party to meet in their re
spective states and congressional districts on
or before Seutcmbor 4 next and appoint ono
delegate and ono alternate to attend the na
tional greenback convention called to meet
nt Cincinnati September , 12. The invitation
is extended to those in favpr of a distinct
American polioy regarding , Its finances , who
believe that full legal tender notes , crocn-
bucks , issued by the government for value
received in promoting the general welfare ,
constitute the money which marks our ad
vancing civilization , makes the best money
the world ever saw and , should become the
permanent circulating medium of the Amer
ican people , the life of whoso free
government they saved , hud that
a party bearing " their name
should bo perp6tuato.il , to keep these
great truths constantly before the people.
Those who believe wltli the prophet of old ,
that 'money unswereth'alUUdngB , ' ' nffd that
no other reform can be vvisoly considered nor
honestly determined until the great economic
wruncs brought ubout by bad legislation
have been corrcctod'and the money question
forever settled In the interest of the whole
people ; and who are willing to act in accord
ance with the spirit of the resolution passed
by the constitutional congress of 177i ! , viz :
"Not to eat , drink , wear nor use anything
manufactured in Great Britain ; nor after
one year trade with any ono who deale in
roods brought here under the British Hag. "
The call says ihat the reorganized party
will also advocate the payment of public
debts accord ing to the original contract under
which they wcro issued ; the encouragement
of the American merchant marine and of
homo industries , the limitation of debts of
corporations to the amount of stock actually
paid up , for the restriction" dividends of

Telegram to Tin : Bun. | Unless the con
stitutional convsn.Uon stands by the recom
mendation which its committee on state and
county Indebtedness makes there will bo n
first-class row over the limitation of state
Indebtedness , which Is the most Important ,
problem to bo determined. The flght over it
will bo commenced by the middle of the
week , If not earlier , and If thcro is a dcnd
lock that will bo the bane of It in all proba
blllty. The constitution of the Mate ot South
Dakota , as It now stands , provides that the
indebtedness shall at no time exceed $500,000.
At the very outset It will bo compelled to
take upon Itself a larger indebtedness than
this amount In round figures. South
Dakota will Inherit $700,000 of the
$1,100,000 or $1,200,000 indebtedness of the
territory on the basis now understood for
the apportionment or division of the debt.
South Dakota , to bo moro precise , will as
sume $050,000 indebtedness. It is held by
some of the technical constructionists that
the constitution will not have to bo changed ,
as the language of It means that the state
shall not contract or create moro that $ .100-
000 indebtedness , whorons the $050,000 It
will assume Is u territorial debt. Bo that as
it may , the state will have $053,000 to pay ,
and so the matter Is as long as It Is short ,
looked at in any light. Delegate Sterling ,
of Sprlnk county , will bo chairman of the
committee which wilt report on this subject ,
and ho will recommend ono of three propo
sitions , namely :
1. That the limit in the constitution bo in
creased to $000,000. leaving the legislature no
power to create debts of any kind.
2. That the limit , as It now stands , bo not
changed , but that provision bo mudo on a
separata section for the assumption of South
Dakota's share of the territory's uobts.
3. That the limit bo Increased to
$750COO , which would allow $150.030
for necessary expenses Incident to the
changes which must bo in ado in the coming
It is generally believed by the leaders of
the convention that the second proposition
will bo the ono recommended. There would
not , as the conditions now exist , bo any
funds for establishing a now capital , and ,
furthermore. It would bo unlawful , to
raise funds unless the constitu
tion was changed. This is a very Im
portant matter , and , as I have said ,
unless the convention readily adopts tbo
recommendations of the committee it will
lead to almost interminable discussion.
Many are the demands being rnudo for
changes in the constitution , but the leaders
will try to confine the work to as small
bounds as possible. A dcmund is made by
politicians for U large increase Jn tbo legis
lative districts. The constitution at present
provides for ninety-nine members of the
lower house. Ityp politicians say thcro must
be 149 , an'increase , of fifty. The constitu
tion now pro'vldos for three members'of the
upper house , orsenato. The politicians say
this number must bo increased to about fifty.
The statesmen say that if this is done Presi
dent Harrison may refuse to issue a procla
mation admitting South Dakota to state
hood , and thus congress would have to be
invoKccl for another law. The constitution
at present provides that but ono constitu
tional amendment shall bo submitted at a
tlmo to the people for ratification. Nearly
every one says this is foolish and a demand
will come that this he stricltcn out. The
county ofllccrs in the proposed state want a
clause inserted providing that the county
onicers elected lust November shall serve till
the regular state election in 180.3 , but this
will not carry. A caucus is talked of for the
purpose of agreeing upon an order for busi
ness amendments to be made. Unless this is
done there may bo merry war at any time.

PATIUOTISM AND POLITICS.

South Dakota People.
Huuox , S. D. , July 0. [ Special to Tin :
Bun. ] The thousands of patriotic people of
this state honored themselves by the mag
nificent manner in which they colobrnted In
dependence day. This they did because it is
our first ludependcnce day the first Fourth
of July on which wo coulit look out
and actually co independence just ahead
the promised land in sight. The chief
coicbrations wora in Huron , Sioux Falls ,
Armadalo and Brooklngs. In Huron "Sun-
sot" Cox was the orator , whllo Judge Moody
made u very flue speech and Governor Mel-
letto spoke a few words. Mr. Cox's ' oration
tion was a gem of tlio purest ray. Ho had
taken great cara in preparing it , and it was
deficient in nothing. It was delivered in the
opera house , which will only scat 100
peoplo. Ihcro wcro 12,000 , visitors
in the city , lionco many did not
hoar It. But the Huronlans are so
hasp liable that tlio order went out , "No Jin-
ronmns allowed in the hall during Cox'
speech. " And it was enforced. Later thn

Hundreds of old soldiers held u reunion in
Brookmgs ; llvo thousand people nssamblcd
at Armadulo , and many other smaller cele
brations wcro held all over the state. It was

The clans are getting Into battle array.
The republicans have fixed the day for their
nominating convention : next week the dem
ocratic committee will hold a meeting in
Sioux Falls to arrange foi their state con
vention , True , their convention will bo
about as uninteresting an affair us a demo-
crutio convention In Vermont. But the
faithful will go through the motions in hopes
of a bettor day by and by. General Taylor ,

of tlio most popular citizens of the state , Is

Judge Tnpp , of Vankton , and John M ,

for congressmen ; Ezra Miller , of Union
county and T. J. Walsh , of Itedficld , for
two of the members of the supreme court ,
with n third from tho. Hills.
Candidates for the republican nomination s
continue to appear , B. F. Hood , of Aber

friends of John II , Patten , of Miner county ,
bollovo that ho would honor the chair of
lieutenant governor , and they will bo heard
from in this behalf.
There Is no doubt that the "outs" are prepared -

DCS MOINIH , la. , July 7. [ Special to TII
HUR.J Politics are beginning to warm tip la
Iowa nnd the candidates for the uioro Impor
tant state offices nro rnptdly developing.
From now until the Uth of August , the date
of the republican convention , itio whole state
will bo aglow with political excitement nnd
the feeling is bound to run high between the
adherents of the various aspirants for polit
ical honors , Three leading candidates nro
already in the Hold for governor , with any
number of dark horses In the background ,
Lieutenant Governor Hull , of this city , wus
' irobably first in the field In fact ho has.
been a standing candidate for several ycara
as being in the direct line of political promo
tion. Cnptuln Hull was a brave soldier ami
is personally extremely popular , but ho in
heavily handicapped by the support of nearly
all the recognized corporation organs.
As president of the senate two years ago It Is
claimed lie was not In full sympathy with the
railroad legislation that was enacted , ana en
deavored to defeat bills of this nature by the
appointment of hostile committees. Captain ,
Hull was originally un anti-monopolist , ami
once made the race for the nomination for
governor on this platform , but many of his
friends have deserted him on the ground that ,
ho "has faltered by the wayside , " and has
not kept pace with the rapidly advancing
anti-monopoly sentiment. Among his most
determined opponents uro the Daily News ,
nnd the Homestead , of this city , both of
which are favorable to Wheeler , the "far
mer" candidate. The Homestead exorcises
a powerful influence among the farmers , au&
this is bound to tell largely In the canvass.
Captain Hull is also embarrassed In his cn'n-
dldacy by the fact that J.'dgo Joslah
Given , of this city , who is now
filling a vacancy on the supreme bench ,
by nDpolutir.ent- a candidate for the full
term. Judge Given seems to bo Hull's ' 'po
litical double. " Whenever Hull aspires to. .
an oCico Given Is biiro to bo on tha track , ,
and the effect is to BO complicate the canvass ,
as to ncutrali/c the cffoits of tUc friends of
each candidate. Polk county can hardly ex
pect to capture two of the leiullugoiliccs , nnd.
the inevitable result will bo that the friends
of Given und Hull will knife each other in
the convention. Uoth candidates , however ,
are on friendly tcrmn , and Polk county will
send ti solid delegation to the convention in
structed to support Hull for governor and
GiVen for supreme judge. The fatal work
will bo done by the warm partisans of each
in lobbylnK with outsiae delegations in the
hotel corridors before ttio batuo'opons. '
Another aspirant for the republican nom
ination for governor Is Senator Hutchison , of
Ottumwn. Senator Hutchison is a man of
largo political experlunce and one of tlio
most alert nnd sagacious politicians In tbo
stnto. Ho is n bankerv.'ell jmppIlnA with
the "smowa of war , " , nfUUli4B 'apparently
gene into ( he iiuht to win. Bonutoi' illitohlh-
son Is unfortunate in baying been a member
of the state senate during t no lust session.
Holng naturally of a conservative turn of
mind , ho voted against most of the proposed
railroad legislation and stood in with thu ob
structionists on many occasions. However ,
ho made : i good record un other cconomig
questions , and is universally regarded aa a
clean , capable man , who would diiinlfy tlio
governor's chair should ho bo called to that
position. Wupallo rounty will send up.a
strong ligting delegation , nnd lie will quite
likely receive entnusiastio HUpport from his
entire congressional district.
The third leadmi ; candidate for the repub
lican nomination for governor is Hou. H , C.
Wheeler , of S.ic county. Mr. Wheeler en
joys the distinction of helm : tha largest
farmer in the stato. Ho owns und farms
nine sections of land near the town of Ode-
bolt and has been very oucucsaful in his busi
ness career. Heretofore Mr. V.'hceJor baa
been regarded a.i a conservative on the rail
road question , but lie Joined in Jionrtllx.witU
the work of the FunnofA1 alllunco.'and the
support of that powerful organization , so far
as it may have an inllnonco on politics , will
bo practically solid for Wheeler. Locality
will also figuru to his advantage. TUo ou-
tire northwestern pan of the state Is morally
certain to come down as 11 unit for Wheeler ,
and the infection will extend to the cast and
south to an indefinite extent. Of
the papers in northern Iowa , the
Spirit Lake Beacon , edited by Senator
Funk , in friendly to Senator Hutchinson ,
and ho will quite likely receive a few scat
tering votes that should naturally go to
Wheeler , The influence of the soldier ele
ment , which is no inconBidor.iblo political
factor in this state , will go lanroiy to Hull
and in this lien hU greatest strength , This
is tbo only source from which Whccjer may
expect little or no bupport. Several vupers ,
especially in the r.outhwcstcrn part ' -of tbo
state , seemed determined upon the r en o initi
ation of Governor Lurrnbco for u third term ,
but it is understood that the governor will
positively decline to allow his name to be
presented to the convention. That Govnr-
nor Larraheo H popular in Iowa goes with
out saying. That ho could have secured the
nomination for n third term with very llttlo
opposition is undoubtedly true , but slnco
other good and capable men nro in thu1 field
the convention will hardly force thu honor
upon him unsolicited. '
tionntor Finn , the Irrepressible anti-mo
nopolist of Taylor county , is u candidate for
lieutenant governor , und southeastern Iowa
Is sun ; to rally solidly to ills support. A
combination between tbo Finn and Wholcor
forces that would prove absolutely Irresist
ible , could cafilly bo effected , and this Is very
likely to bo the outcome of the convention.
Very few primaries have yet been lioid , but
thn result so fur IB favorable to Whcelor. In
.Marshall county , where the soldiers' hpmo , is
located , and where the strong soldier eln-
mcnt was solid for Hull , Whcoler carried the
primaries with an overwhelming majority.
This result , however , was-largely d.uu to the
powerful Influence of the Marsaalltowu
Times ( republican ) , which has be < m for
years un able and conspicuous champion at
radical anti-monopoly legislation ,
In Guthrlo county the contest was warm
and bitter between the Hull nnu Whcoler
forces , It being the second county west of
Polk , nnu un ttio line of the Hock Island , thu
advantages of locality were rather with Hull ,
am1 , bo will probably get the delegation ,
though a divided vote may result.fiTlio (
primaries hold so far Indicate that each
county will be hotly contested by tlio friends
of tliuso candidates. Should each of the ttireo
loading aspirants for governor ivcclvo , a
nearly equal number of votes and thu contest
become prolonged uud doubtful , a dark
Ijprso may slip in und boar away the prlro.
and In that event It would bo no surprise It
the "d.irk horse" would prove to bo Hon.
