I'lTTsnunu, PH., >\b, 13.—The Commercial Qnz«tt>, iif rhii rily, publishes the following: Fl.niiKNCE, Italy, Jan. 'J5, ISMi B. F. Junes. E q , Chairman of the Rapub- licm N'litinnnl Committee: Blltr 1 wish through you to state to the members of the R-pnblican party that my name will not bu presented to tbe national convention rnllixl to npscii'ble In Chicago In June in k tor the nomination of candldaUM 'or prtNitlcnt and vice president of the United SUtes I am cohfltraiiiod to till* decision by considerations entirely personal to mytelf, of hich you wore advised more "than a year ago. . I3ut 1 can not make the announcement Without giving expression to my deep sense of gratitude to the many, thousands of my countrymen who bavo sustained mo BO long and BO corlinlly that their feeling has seemed to go beyond tho ordinary political adherence of fellow portions, nnd to partake somewhat of the nuhim of personal attachment For this unwt gt-norous loyalty of friendship I can niaku no ndequate return, but I shall carry the montory of It while life lasts. Nor can I refrain from congratulating tbe Republican party upon the cheering prospects which distinguish the opening of the national rontpst of 18-48 as compared with that of 1*S». In 1W3 the Republicans throughout the union in't with a disastrous defeat. Ten states that bad supported Gnr- flald and Arthur In tbe election of IttSO wore carried by .the Democrats either by rnnjorl lios or pluralities. The R^iAiblican loss in Ihe northern elections compared with tbe preceding national "election exceeded "half "a~ mi'llon votes, and the electoral votes of the union, divided on the basis of 188'J, gave to the Democrats over 300 electors out of a total of 40). There was a partial reaction In favor of the R»publicans In the elections of 18:33, but tbe Democrats still held possession i f «ove i northern states, and on tbe basis of tbe year'd contest could show more than 100 majiriiy In the electoral colleges of the whole country. But Hguinst tbe discouragement naturally following the adverse elections of theae two years, the spirit of the Republican party In tba national contest of 1864 rose high, and tho Rcrul'lU'in rnnsws entered Into this earn patgn with such energy that tbe final result dftpendbd on tbe vote of a single state, an 1 tlmt state was carried by tlie Democratic [>arty by a plurality so small that it presented less than one eleventh of 1 per cent, of tbe entire vote. The change of a single vote in uvory £,000 of tho total poll would have given tho state to tbe Republicans, though only two yeum before the Depv ocralic plurality exc' odcd 1M.OOO. The elections of 1,^88 and '.887 have demonstrated growing strength iu the Republican Seldom in our pol-itical history baa a party, defeated In a national election, rallied with such vigor as have tbe Republicans gliice lb>4. No comparison is possible be- twetu tbe spirit of tbe party iu 1482-3 and its spirit In 188t!-7. The two periods present simply a cintrast—the one of general depression, tbe other of enthusiastic revival Should the parly gain, in- the. results of 1888 over those of lsSU-7 in anything like the proportion of thfl gain of i8S4 over 183'*-!), It would secure one of tbe moit remarkable victories of Ita entire ex'steuce. ' But victory does not depend on so large a ratio of increase; the party has only lo maintain relatively It» prestige of IKSil 7 to give to the national cnn dldate every northern state but one, with E far better prospect of carrying that one than* It has bod for the past six years. Another foature of tbe political situation should inspire Republicans with irresistibls strength, Tbe present national jidtninifltra tlon was elected with, if not" upon, the repeated assertions of 4ta leading snpporlsrs in every protection state that no Issue on the tariff was involved. However earnestly Republicans urged tfmt question as one of controlling importance in the campaign, they were met by the Democratic leaders and journals witli persistent evasion, concealment and iloui 11. That resource the president has fortunately removed. The is sue which tbe Republicans maintained OB: the Democrats avoided in 1884. b been prominently and specifically brought forward by the Democratic i president, and can not be hidden out of sight lu 1N83. The country is now In tbe enjoy, meat of an industrial system which in a quarter of a century has secured a larger na tional growth, a more rapid accumulation and a broader distribution of wealth than were ever before known to history. t The American people will now' be openly and formally asked to decide, whether! this system ahull be recklessly abandoned and a new trial be made of an old experiment which has uniformly led to national eiu* burroastnent and widespread individual distress. On tbe result of such an issue, fairly presented to the popular judgment, there is no room for doubt. One thing only is necessary to assure, success—complete harmony and cordial co-operation ou tbe part of all Republicans—on the part both of those who aspire to lead and of thoso who are eager t« follow. Tbe duty is uot one merely of honorable devotion to the parly whose record and whose aim are alike great, but it is one demanded by tbe Instinct of solf-intereit and by the still higher promptings of patriotism. A closer observation of the conditions of life among the older uatiohs'gives'me a more intense desire that tbft American pc> p'u shall make no mistake la choosing tbe policy which inspires tabor with hope and cronns it with dignity, which givM <mfoty to capital aud protects its increase, whfi'h H j cur*n political power to every rlt.ara, comfmt and culture toovory home.

THE GOTHAM CELEBRATION. Prominent Republicans Dine and Talk of the fast and Future. YORK, Feb. ia—The second annual dinner of the Republican club of this city was held Saturday night at Deltnonlco'i. Aliout 1J75 persons were present, among them Senator* John Sherman, John C. Ppooner, William M. Evarts, William B. Allison and Charles F. Manderson; ei-Senntors Warner Miller and Thomas C. Platt, ex-Postmaster General Htlton, Speaker Fremont Cole (of the New York state assembly), Clmuncey H. Depow, A. Tborndyke Rice, Fralicia A. Macoinber, ox-Governor Cornell, Henry R. Low, John M. Thayer, P. C. Lounsbury, Gen. Nathan C. Goff and Hon. Charles H. Grosvenor. Mr. Elnard T. Bartlott presided. The dinner was in commemoration of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, and at tbe head of the list of those who sent letters of regret were Robert T. Lincoln, Gen. J. C. Fremont. Hannibal Hamlin, R. B.. Hayes. Mr. Wnitfl, Governor Foraker, Geprge F. Hoar, T. B. Reed, R F. Jones, Bonatof Frank Hiscock, Governor Oglraby, Senator lucnllH, \Vbltelaw Reid, Governor Boaver, Judt;e Gresham and R A. Alger. The hall was handsome ly decorated, among the decorations being a number of banners carried in the first Lincoln campaign. A large portrait of President Lincoln, tastefully draptvl, occupied a prominent place. Au elaborate menu was served. Mr. E.I word T. Bartlett, the president of the club, who presided, called the diners to order at 8:30 o'clock. In a brief speech he declared that the recent convention of clubs, representing all that is honorable and manly In politics, bad produced a degree of party organization never before equalled, and concluded with a tribute to the memory of Lin coin. Then followed tbe reading of the letters of regret* When the name of Gov. Foraker was reached there was an outburst of applause tlmt was actually deafening. The toast "Abraham Lincoln,". was responded to by Senator Evarte, who, In the convention of ISO I, had moved to make the nomination of Lincoln unanimous. He said: "I am proud to be numbered with the members of this club, and to take part In this tribute to Abraham Lincoln. Where can we ~0nd a fame like hist His la a fame like that of Washington, and bis career reflects upon Illinois n glory like that which Washington gave to Virginia," Senator Evarts briefly outlined the career of Lincoln. "Ho was the leader, not of a party, but of a nation thai bad risen to shake off the encumbrances that bound It limbs," said Evarts. "Though without an army or navy that nation was able, as it would be again, to arraign on son and land an armament able to cope with tbe armies of the world. And Lincoln lived to see peace'over a subjugated, not a compromised, rebellion. [Applause.] It matters little what we say hero, but it mattered much what as done there. There was nothlngjeft in the stages of greatness but tlmt this ohoien loader should be a martyr [ipplauii], and that he xhould bave boen stricken down on Good Friday, as the martyr of liberty,' adds to his glory." Senator Evarts prophesied tbe speedy return of thn Republican party to power, and closed with a further eulogy ol Lincoln. "Tbe Republican Party," was responded to by Senator Spooner, of Wisconsin. He re viewed its career at some length, from Ita inception to tha present time, and attributed Its defeat In 18St to the mugwumps. The Issues at present, be'raid, were not confined to free ballot and civil service reform, but also Included tbe protection of American industry and • labor. The Democrats bad avowed themselves In favor of free trade, and the only remedy Is an old time Republican majority, and" that remedy would un doubted ly be administered in the cominj campaign. Senator Sherman had been put down for the la»» speech, but owing to his not feeling well be was'nexl called upon. He res pond et to the toast' of "A free'ballot and a fair count" He said that a free ballot was the basis of liberty. Grovcr Cleveland had even dwelt upon) that subject in one of bis moi •sages, but not In the last [laughter]; that was devoted to paving the way for another campaign. He declared that if there had been a free ballot and a (air count In 1884 James G. Blalne would have txwn elected. [Tremendous •applause.] He charged tho Democrats with corrupting the ballot, tiot only In the south but throughout the north, and predicted that • U the Republicans did not do their duty In tha matter the Democrats would break down the industries of the country. T' •. Sanatar Miller spoke next, bis toast being "The State of New York." He dwelt upon the greatness of the Empire state, and eulogized tbe Republican' party. "Tbe Union Soldier" was responded to by Senator Johu F. Manderson, of Nebraska. He was very severe o& President Cleveland's pension vetoes. He characterized the pension list as a roll of honor and a patent list of nobility. Conpi>*i man McKinley spoke upon "Tbe Tariff." "Ihe Surplus" was responded to by Senator Allison. ' CULLOM AND FRED DOUGLASa ' and tbe perjwluntion of his name. You may xtol him as a ntatesman and a patriot We vere him as a man and a philanthropist-* Capt. Patrick O'Ferrall made the closing speech. • He wa» a boy, in Ireland, he said, when Lincoln was elected and tho war broke out Tho Irish people, however, felt an interest In the downfall of slavery and ths per- jetuatlon of the republic. He-came to New York, ami enlisted in tho army of tbe Union .wenty.four hours after landing in America. 3s loved Lincoln, ho said, not so much for laving saved tho Union as for having emancipated the negro. llAunlttal Hamlln's Etaccestlon. BOSTOX, Fob. IS.—The Mosiachu wtts club celebrated the anniversary of Lincoln's alrtbday by a banquet Saturday evening. Hannibal Hamlm scut a lottor In which he said: "Let his birthday like that of Washington be mado national, and like that of Washington let it be forever commemorated." The sentiment was received with great applause. Henry George Heerns To Be " Out." NEW YORK, Fob. 13.—Dr. Edward Colt, who is stopping in Brooklyn, called upon Mr. George Saturday to discuss a subject tending to enchance tbe welfare of the Anti- Poverty society. Tho doctor stated the object of Jills visit, and was surprised when Mr. George said: "I do not know anything about what the Anti-Poverty society people are doing or what they Intend to do, anil furthermore I do not caro." They Eulogize tha Martyr President B fore Wmthlnfftan City Republicans* WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 1,1— The annl versary of the birthday of Abraham Lincoln was commemorated at the Republican Na tional league Sunday afternoon. The club rooms were well filled with a distingulshet auili-.'nco of prominent senators and representatives and league members with their .families. Dr. John P. Newman opened tbi meeting with' prayer. Tbe speakers were Senator Cullora, Fred Douglass, Simon Wolf and Capt. O'Ferrall. Senator Cullom dullv ered the principal ad Iress. "Lincoln's power," he said, lay lu bis wonderful insight into the truth and in his courage to proclaim It to listening world against all op[K>iit!on. In this he was more powerful and eloquent thai Clay, or Webster, or Calhoun, or Seward In the conviction that he was right, OIK in the persistent advocacy of what he be lieved to be right, ha arose above all party claims and methods.* In conclusion tbe senator saldi "The world-is uiade better by recounting tbe virtues: of ruch men aa Abraham Lincoln. There are nouo wbosi lives teach to Amerl cans a grander lesson than that of Lincoln. Tbe study of it will conduce to private am public virtue, corroci ideas of our relations to each other, and Inspire moral courage to stand by our convictions of duty.* Kred DouglaKl followed Senator Cullom.

READING STRIKE LEADERS BEFORE THE HOUSE COMMITTEE. Charles FranrU Adnnm Puts In a Wort! fnf the Union I'nolflc— Tlmt Tariff Hill Slow In Cbuitructiun— An Kconntrlo Woman Dead— Fiut Mall lo Wisconsin—Counterfeit Silver Certificate*. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 13.—John L. Lee, the leader of tbe strike of Reading railway men, was before tbo bouse special committee on the strike Saturday. Hia statement waa a repetition of those already Riven to the public in these iltsostches. He said the trouble was not a strike, but a lockout The trouble at Port Richmond and EMzabethport had bi>. gun by union men refusing to load or mm a freight lor delivery to firms with whom tho union was at issue, but afterward Sweigard, tbe general superintendent, had agreed to pu the men back to work if they reported, and thenjrjolated bis word. Corbiu'ha'l^worked to keep up tho Htrike In the Lenl^r region, because, he said, coal would advance find his company would make money out of the public thereby. J^ee churned that C'orbln was in league with powerful New York railway corporations to break up tbe K. of L., and that W. M. Lewis, of Columbus, O., could testify to positive knowledge of that fact Hugh McGarvey, of the Lihiijb region, said tbe trouble there was that wagM were too low. In 1870 tho miners wore forced to accept a 10 per cent reduction, and the operators absolutely fixed the price of coal. The rates paid were 42)^ cents per ton for milling, and the present xtrikn Wax (or 10 par cent advance. Minors barely averaged per year in earnings, and perhaps 1!5 por cunt of them accumulated a little at this rate. About 1,1)00 muu weru now idle in the Leblgh region, and $0.000 to $7,000 per week was distributed among them from tho labor unions. Many were in want, but none actually starving. The men rent tbelr houses of the companies at nbout $5 to $7 pnr month. They lire required to pay 50 to 70 cents per month for doctors' fefls. This pays for doctors' services except in extraordinary cases. The Roman Catholics (who are about 60 per cent, of the population) pay M cents por month for the priests, and this amount Is also held back by tho companies. The mon are taxed for state and county taxes at the rate of 8 per cent, on a fixed valuation. A miner's occupation is valued at $100; laborer, $75; preachers, doctors, store-keepers, eta, from $16(> to {300. He thought th. mining companies make a profit of about t: per ton, John Davidson, of tha Schuylklll region, said prices paid for' mining wero not mor than one-bait what they wore In 18(19. Tbi operators had,managed to reduco the wages of miners by gradually Increasing the sice o the cars, or Increasing tbo work by widenlni the breast of coal while lowering the pay po yard. Tbe operators lived in luxury, am had tbelr fast horses. Mr, Pardee was worth $47,000,000. Thirty-five years ago he was worth nothing. He bad seen Mr. Lewis an Individual operator of the William Penn mine, quoted as saying that be could not oulj afford to pay tbe S per cent advance in wages refused by the Reading company, bu 45 per cent on top of that THEY WERE NOT GHOULS. .Two Hen Arrested la Washington Clt] fur Grave Robbery Proved Innocent. .WASHINGTON Crrr, Feb. IH.—It turns ou that the two men, John B. Lord and Danie Hlndman, arrtstcd here Friday night whil driving through the streets with two dea< bodies iu a covered vehicle, were not gravi robbers. They were simply on their waj from the Columbian medical college to Qleu wood cemetery with tbe bo J lea of a Mr Drake and Mrs. Teesdale, that bad been removed from tbelr graves by some robbers •nd taken to the college. Detectives ha< found them aud they were being taken bad to the grave as quietly as possible. Among the medical students at the Columbian col lege are four young ladies, aud tbe body o Mrs. Teesdale bad been turned ovur to them and the work of dissection, so far as it had progressed, bad all been done by the younj ladles. What was left of Mrs. Teesdale body as well as the body of Mr. Drake, were roin- terred in Glanwood Baturday. WAITING FOR THE TARIFF BILL, Aud Tlmt Meanure Not Due Till the Kud o the Present Month.

Uruat crowds were at the doors clamoring for admittance but unable to entor. Whun Albert" completed his tJOUth mile, ^bioh hu did at 4:44 p. m., there was a storm of applause fortuity five minutes. Ex- Alderman Patrick Fitzgerald, tba cbampion- sblpsix-<lny pedestrian, was present When, shortly bjt'ore 8 o'clock, Albert completed the lout lap of the 010 miles, which put him even with the record of Fitzjurald, and entered upon a field absolutely bis own, the which blsachisremeutellcitod must have loosened the bolts lu the creaking rafters of the old structure, and the ex-champion heaved a sigh of resignation as he saw himself relegated,- to the second place in the history of that peculiar infliction upon mankind, for which Sir John Ailley is roBponelula. At 8:51! Guerrero , the third man in the race, retired from the track and le(( the garden. Uo was followed soon after by others of the contestants, and from this hour until 10:80 there was a steady stream of humanity pouring from each of the exiu of the building, so that at the clone of the walk very few of the spectators remained. Albert stayed on the track until the' expiration of the ]42nd hour, when he retirrd, leaving his 6&2ud mile unfinished. As Albert left the track escorted by bis attendants and a few frieudb the cheers of the small crowd remaining in the garden were deafening." Some one in the crowd called for three cheers for Mru Albert, and tbe uproar was renewed for another live minutes, only to be repeated when some one else demanded an additional round for tbe champion. Each racer upon leaving tbe track carried an American flag around tbe course for'one lap. . Of the forty-eight men who started in the race a week ago only thirteen were in at tbe finish, and eight of- these covered more than 5X'5 miles. The winner finished the freshest man in tbe race. During the race he rested 1U hours, 20 minntm and 50 seconds, and his actual score in U'J hours was 621 miles and l.SUJ yards. Just before Albert left tba track ho was presented to tbe spectators by one of tbe managers and proclaimed the greatest pedestrian in tbe world, to which compliment be replied In a graceful speech of thaulca. The dual score was as follows: Albert, toll miles, l,8iO yards; Horty, 563, (WO yard: Guerrero, 601; Hart, 510, tWJ yards; Golden, 633, 8SO yards; Moore, 531, 1,820 yards Btrokul, 520, 840 yards; Noremac, ii5, 440 yards; Dillon, 6J4, l.SdO yard*; Tilly, SO), l,3iO yards; Taylor, 401; Sullivan, 883, 110 yurd<; Stout, 20d, b&l yards. Albert was apparently as frejli (Sunday mornin; as any nmu In tbe Aiblani house. He took only biauiunl sleep Baturday night, arose early and after breakfast took a short walk with bia wife. Later in tbe day he walked from Twenty-fourth street to Cm- tral park and back, and will continue taking moderate exercise Instead of lapsing into idleness. He says he will uever enter an other pedestrian contest, although be may participate iu walking exhibitions. He is under engagement to appear nightly for a week with Duckstader's minstrels, and wili deliver addresses In ring oostumt). Two pro< poued receptions in JPhiiadelpbia have been postponed iu consequence. Fttzgoral, tbe long-distance pedeatrlao.say* he suspects something wrong about Albert's record. He will not rojign bia claim to the championship until Albert has bjaten him in a ruce where both take part. He will gointo training at once, and. hopes to arrange such a race for Docember, open to all comers, Th« Crtiwa I*rlij4!e'» Condition..

Bnrg; Kilt a Wealth? Citizen of Illinois When Detected Ita Their Operations —A Bribery Incident In the Colnmbns Tally Sheet Case—Rurlden Death In Muz- loo—Itemised of Iniquity. MAmsBA, Ilia., Feb. 13.— This quietnolgh- rarhood was in a state of the wiMes'. excitement Sunday Over a tragedy which seems to be almost a c< U'ltorpsTt, except that It occurred in broud daylight, of tbe murder of Mr. Snell at Chicago. George W. Guthrie, was one of the wealthiest farmers in St Clalr Bounty, and resided with bis family two and ne-balf miles from Mariana. He was known o be a rich man, and common report was .hat he kept considerable sums of money In ita iron money-safe In his hoosa He waa • popular man, and is not known to have had my bitter enemies. Sunday morning th* amily prepared, as has been their custom, to attend church at Mariana. Mr. Guthrio emalned reading the morning papers at the ireakfast table, so that as tbe time ap- iroached for the ride to town he was not yet haved. On this account be concluded not to go to church, so the family drove off; without him. The last seen of him alive b} any of his family was they started for church. He was preparing to shave himself. This was at 9 o'clock. • ' About fifteen minutes after 12 o'clock the family returned home. A daughter about 1C years old was tbe first to enter tbe bouse, and as she did so she remarked that everything seemed awfully quiet She passed through the front door into her father's room, and in a minute rushed out screaming, 'Somebody has shot father." Other members of tbe family harried in and found Mr. Guthrle stretched out on tbe Boor, dead, with a pistol wound In ths breast In tbe region of tbo heart. Further investigation showed that a watch and chain and $35 In money bad b«en taken. An Iron burglar proof safe In the room showed evidence of attempts with hammer and chisel to foroa it, but the efforta were unsuccessful. Tbe room showed evidence of a struggle, and from a superficial examination the theory Is that the robbers entered the house shortly after the family departed for church; that Mr. Guthrla was shaving himself in his bed-room, and beard them in the adjoining room, used by him as an office; that they thought the whole family had gone to church, jind were surprised at .their work by Mr. Gutbrie; that they sought to retreat, and he triol to capture one of them. Mr. Guthrie was 47 years old. GRANVILLE'S STORY CORROBORATED. A Collimbus, O., Sqtilre'i Testimony—What Ike Hill Hud In His Hool-L* E . COLDMBUS, O., Feb. 14—The most sens*, tional testimony produced in tbe tally-sheet forgery trial since Algernon Oranvllle left the stand, was given Saturday by Matthlai Martin, a justice of the peace of this city, who was a member of the board that can vassod the returns in 1885, when the forgery was committed, Squire Martin fully corroborated the testimony of Granville as to ths visits of the latter to tbe office of the witness In behalf of the defendant, Montgomery, to find out for him how the 'squire was going to vote on the question of accepting tbe returns from tbe two precincts of this 'city which were not signed at all by tbe election judges. These returns wero from strong Republican precincts, and as the county was close, If they were thrown out a sure Democratic victory would be gained. Another part of the justice's testimony bore upon a visit made him In his office, while be held a position of inch responsibility In the election board, by Iks Hill, of Newark, O., who offered him a bribe If he would vote to refuse to count tbe returns that were not signed. Counsel for defense objected to this testimony on the ground that it bad nothing to do with tbe forgery. Tbe court overruled this, s$nd the justice proceeded with bis story of the bribe. He said that on Sunday morning, about nine o'clock, when ho was writing an opinion he was to deliver before tbo canvassing (board on tbe disputed tally sheet question, Isaac Hill, ol Newark, had come into tbe office, and after expressing his friendliness to him [the witness] began talking about accomplishing "a certain thing." Hill told him he ought to do It if be could, aud that he knew be was poor and would like to "throw a brick Into his garden." The witness said he wanted to get rid of him, and so told him he would see him about It again. Afterwards he had met him In front of Huston's drug store and Hill bad broached tbe subject again. The; were talking about tbe counting of the disputed returns. Hill had told him that ha [wltneaO was a poor man. Witness had replied that no one knew that better than him self. He had then said to Hill: "Why, Isaac, there la not a man In tbe city of Columbia who knows what I am going to do with tha disputed vote to-morrow." Hill bad again said something about his rejecting the returns, and then said; "If you do, it will be a matter of not lass than three and tnret ciphers to you. I've got It In my boot lei now." Tbe witue&i said be placed his hanc on Hill's shoulder anil said: "Isaac, I thcugb you knew me better than that" Adjourned AN EPISODE IN MEXICO. A Way Mexican Soldiers Have—InorwaMo ..
