at as so of to the E. j re? It aDd cheap FROM WASHINGTON. [Correspondence of the Alexandria Gaeette.] Washington, Sept. 13,1894. C. H. J. Taylor, the Kansas negro brought here to be made recorder of deeds for the people of this city, has written a letter in which he calls the members of his race who oppose him, "buzzards" and "hyenas." L. P. Wright, a Northern republican appoint? ed by Mr. Harrison, still holds the place of register of wills, and it is cur? rently reported that Mr. Sherwood, the republican postmaster, will be reap i pointed. It is needless to say that all of this is especially gratifying to the [ democrats of the District, who, 33 regu i larly as elections come, make liberal contributions to the democratic cam- I paign fund. From the Petersburg, Virginia, dis-1 trict, intelligence is to the effect that Mr. McKenney of Petersburg, not ex-1 Governor McKinney of Farmville, stands the best chance of getting the democratic nomination for Congress in that district, and that should he get it, he will certainly receive a large repub? lican support in the city of Petersburg, and probably some in other parts of the district. J. M. Langston, the negro ex-Congressman from that district, who lives here, says he will soon go down there and make speeches for Mr. Thorp, the republican nominee. The strength of the populists in the district is said to have been almost entirely dissipated. While Chinese are rigidly excluded from this country, consular reports, re? ceived at the State Department to^day, show that emigration companies are chartered by the Japanese government lor the purpose of shipping natives of that, muntrv to the United States. AetiDg Secretary Uhl of the Depart? ment of State to day designated Lieut. Michael A. O'Brien of the 5th Infantry, U. S. A., as military attache of our le? gation at Tokio, Japan. According to Senator Stewart, Mr. Cleveland has been as lucky in his pe? cuniary, as in his political ventures, for that Senator says he understands that he and his former clerk, Secretary prospect and reports from Wisconsin are that the party will more than hold its own in that State The Due d'Orleans, in a speech to the French royalists assembled on the oc? casion of his father's funeral, made a formal announcement of his claim to the French throne. The only well in the village at Latti mer, Pa., was yesterday found to bs filled with coal oil and paris green. A quarrel about ownership led to this dastardly attempt at wholesale poison? ing. There is a movement on foot in Washingtcn to have the Supreme Couit of the United States housed in the Cor? coran Art Gallery, at the corner of Seventeenth street and Pennsylvania avetue. The splendid town hall in Verden, Department of Meuse, France, which contained many art treasures, has been burned. The tire communicated :u the museum adjoining the town hall and this building was also burned. Peter Jackson ha3 asked for his $10, 000 deposit. The fight with Cor bett will not take place. Corbett has written a letter denouncing Jackson for not fighting in the South, saying the people of the South are the fairest peo? ple in the world. President C. H. J. Ta3'lor, of the ne? gro national democratic league, has de? clined, with spiteful allusions to "ne? gro murderers belonging to the other race," to accept H. C. C. Astwood's resignation of the chairmanship of the league. Taylor says that, being re? corder of deeds, he "is out of politics;" that he "can pas3 upon the acceptance or non-acceptance of the resignation." The colored republican State conven? tion at Denver yesterday nominated A. W. Mclntyre, of Conejos count}', for Governor. Senator Teller made a speech in which he said : "I was pre? sent at the birth of the republican par? ty, and when it shall ally itself with the gold standard absolutely, I shall part with that party, not to go to the populists, but to go to some other par rv. which will insure the free coinage of silver." the ing witb it ?S each and and tol zen for for ing she ing at fell Gov. his in the the the I
