WASHINGTON. I ) . C. . July 18. I
It Is probable Mint tlicro will bo no cabinet
meeting between tlio present time and the
liour for tlia departure of the president for
Deer 1'nrk on Saturday. General and Mrs.
Harrison made up their mluils to luavo again
on that day nnd will prounbly remain In the
mountains for a longer period than boforo.
The members of Iho cabinet who nro now In
the city called Informally upon the president
to-day and chatted with him concerning
matter * pending In various departments , but
contrary to expectations , there were no post
masters announced this afternoon. Tlicro
will probably bo n number of
appointments tnado to-morrow , howovor.
It Is understood Hint n considerable mimboi
of papers relating to consulates hnvo been In
the president's hands , or on his deck , for
Bomo tlmo , and It Is oxpoctcd before ho re
turns that ho will attach hi * slunnturo to the
commissions of n number of gentlemen who
have been applying for the plates. There
Will also , In all probability , bo a number of
appointments la connection with the interior
department , nnd it was In this connection
that Secretary Noble spent considerable
tlmo with the president to-day. The return
of Mr. Walker Ulnlno hero wan followed by
the most positive denial from that gentleman
of the recently published story to the effect
that his father proposes to resign the 1st of
The absolute unfairness nnd lack of de
cency with which the attacks on Commis
sioner Tanner are bolm : conducted wus
amply demonstrated to-day when the real
facts in the latest screed of the Now York
Times against the commissioner wcro un
earthed. The Times charged unfairness and
gross violation of law In the case of one pen-
loner named Phillips. It was asserted that
Mr. Tanner had re-rated this tuan from 1 to
$30 per month. The facts of the case are
that Phillips was originally rated at ? * !
a mouth unuor Lilack's administration.
This was first Increased to $1" and subse
quently to iH per mouth. Ho has not been
re-rated since Air. Tanner's administration
bcKuu. 'Iheroaro a ( Trent many moro simi
lar cases. The miti-iuhnlnistr.Uion i.uws-
papers nro stopping nt no misrepresentation
and are hesitating at no meanness to make
capital against the conduct of affairs in the
different departments , and their airows nro
generally directed as wldo of the mark aa
wns the shaft in the Phillips caso.
If Chancellor Mnnatt goes to Athens his
position promises to bo an unexpectedly
pltasant and responsible. one. It is under
stood that Minister SSnowdon prefers to pro-
Bide nt Hucharcst , where the location was
established under Arthur's administration.
In this event AlanaU will bo the only repre-
scututlvo of the United States resident in
Greece , nnd ttie state department is
disposed to do everything in Its
power to make the position tendered him
both utt motive and profitable. Mr. Matmtt
will leave Washington for Philadelphia to
morrow morning. While lucre ho will call
on Minister Suowdnn and will consult with
him about the country and the duties to
which the two gentlemen have been assigned.
thcnco ho will proceed to CliauUiuqun , and
from there homo. Howillairlve in Nebraska

Some tlmo atro Pension Commissioner
Tanner appointed Doctors M. O. Ueechlv
nnd J. U. Hiizznrd as members of the board
of medical examiners at Lincoln and nt the
saint ) time decided to ictain Dr. Lowry as a
member of the board. Tins' * action brought
down a perfect storm of wrath upon his
head and caused him to rccclvo a larpc quan
tity of loiters of protests from members of
the Grand Army. When Mr. Tanner
Visited Lincoln ho was again
reminded that the retention of Dr. Lowry
was unpopular. Mr. Tanner has nt last de
cided that the best interests of the service
would bo subserved by the appointment of
Bomo ouo moro popular among the people
with 'whom ho comes In contact , and to-day
ho submitted tbo name of Dr. J. O. Duwaon

CIIICAOO , July 18. [ Special Telegram to
TnnllBE. ] An evening paper says : The
relations of Alexander Sullivan to the
present status of the Cronln case is some
what unusual. Ho Is virtually a prisoner
by reason of the finding of the coroner's '
Jury , being under $20,000 bonds to await the
grand Jury's action * . But , although accused
ot and hold for the crime , ho cannot bo tried
till the grand Jury shall have Indicted him.
Tlio special grand Jury did not present him
with the conspirators whom they Indicted.
The grand Jury , which meets next Monday ,
will probably also rotuso to Indict him , be
cause no evidence besides that presented before
fore the coroner's Jury has been discovered
against him. On this evidence. Judge Tulcv
says It Is impossible that a petit Jury should
convict him.
"What Is the status of Sullivan's ' canal"
was naked of States AUornor Longencekor
"Just the same. "
"Have yon nny further erldcnco against
him thnn that presented nt the inquostl"
"We have not. "
"Suppose Sullivan should show that the
money used by him in the speculaions ) la
which Kbv'ns engaged wns not Irish Society
money , would this free him from suspicion ? "
"I donot cnro to talk about that view of Iho
case. His friends soy such Is the fact. I
don't want to talk about It. "
Sullivan's friends are making the state
ments set forth In the question put to Lcn-
gcncckor , ' 1 ho evidence before the coroner
showed a deadly enmity between Sullivan
and Dr. Cronln , a mutual hatred which was
very Intense. The cause of this feud was
Cronin's repeated accusations that Sullivan
had embczzlivt ceitaln money belonging
to the Clnn-na-Gaol. It wns also
asserted that Sullivan "blow In" this money
in stock speculation. .1. T , Lester < fc Co.'s
books showed that Sullivan speculated and
lost monoy. To the coroner's jurv this
seemed proof of the truth of the charges
made by Cronln , Devoy and Dillon. Tills
was the hut ) of the whole controversy. Sul
livan's ' frleuds say that he will show tbnt not
1 cent of this mouoy belonged to the Clan-na-
Gael , and they argue that If Cronin's charge
of embezzlement , be thus refuted all subse
quent suspicion of Sullivan must fall far lack
of a basis. Sullivan is reported as having
said to a friend not long since that ho would
bo liable to explain away every fact that
seemed to condemn him.
"The gist ot all the charges against mo , "
Sullivau is reported to have said , "Is the loss
of Clan-na-Gacl money lu speculation. When
the tlmo comes when I may make a
defense I will show bejond the possibility of
cavil that this money was the property of
private individuals and that I speculated with
it at their command and under their instiuc-
tlous. I will show rny authority from them
In such shape that it cannot bo disputed. I
will vouch for every action of mluo by men
of so high reputation that their word can not
bo questioned , and the people who now at
tack mo will wonder that anyone could have
accused mo. I refused to account to certain
people for the fact that I had acted us the
agent of others In speculation , bedauso
who made the demand haU no right to the in
formation. They had no interest in the
monoy. This 1 will be able ta prove beyond
question. " _

olutions were adopted :
Whereas , It is known to this society that
In all parts of the state , agents or dealers
solicit and take orders for budded apple
trees , Claiming a grafted trco is worthless ,
being necessarily "black-hearted ; " that this
condition originates at the splice In the root ,
and spreads upward throuah the tree ; ami
Whereas , It has come to our knowledge
that thcsu persons do not deliver budded
npplo trees , but root-grafted trees , and that
they are by means of these false statements
enabled to sell such trees at exorbitant
prices , to-wit. : 40 cents to 81.50 each ; there
fore ,
Resolved. That it Is the opinion of this
society and experienced horticulturists In
general , that for a vigorous climate a root-
grafted tieo , properly made , Is bettor In
every respe < ; t than a budded tree.
Resolved , That "black-heart" does not In
auv casu originate at tuo root and spread up
Resolved That "black-heart"
, - is usually
caused by the inadaptability of a tree to the
climate , or to the Improper handling of a
proper variety.
Resolved , That wo request the press of
the state to publish thrso resolutions.
A strong resolution was unanimously
adopted recommending John Hyde , of Ne

Hnrlnn's Complaint.
Dns MotNns , la , July 18. [ Special Tele
gram to TUB Br.B.J A. complaint was fllei
with the railroad commissioners to-dnj
against the Rock Island road by the cltlrous
of Hurlixn. The complaint grows out of the
reduction of train scrvloo between that plnci
nnd Avoca , a distance of about thirteen
mjlos. Hnrlnn Is the county scat of Shelby
county , a place of ever two thousand uopula
tlon , but slnco last March It has had but ono
train a day between It and tuo main line nt
Avooa. The train lias boon run at Rucl
hours as not to connect with the main line
nnd compelled passengers to wait sovora
hours nt Avoca after they reached that place
They can not go from Harlan to Council
Bluffs and return , a distance of but a few
miles , without taking all the tlmo
from thd morning of ono day to
the evening of the next. For
this reason , nnd because their mail and express
press service is uUo demoralised , they ask
the commissioners to compel the Hocklslntul
to run two trains per day to their town.
This is Important , because a test case o
tbo uowor of the commissioners to order n
road to run trains wblub it alleges do not
pay oxpetisea. Last spring , when the re
duced freight rates went Into effect by the
'order of the commissioners , the Rock island
began reducing its passenger train service
on all Its oranches In Iowa. Ono of the
towns that was badly hurt by this reduction
was Harlan , and after standing the arrange
meut for several months , the citizens appoa
to the commissions for relief. If successful ,
similar petitions will bo tiled ou all the
branch lines.
