cannot be regarded as an ordinary
incident of Congressional legisla

rife as to what disposition the

it, or will he permit it to become a

Michigan to the following ef
''Ha had heard lrom a source
which he believed to be entirely
trustworthy that the President had
said to one or more prominent
Democratic leader th" d-i wi

ABBIVAL OF FEDERAL TROOPS.
The troops, 600 strong, arrived at the
Union depot at 8:15 o'clock by a special
train from Fort Logan. The n.ilitia was
sent back to the armory, and at 9 o'clock
Gen. McCook ordered the troops to bi
vouac at the depot until morning. He
has held a conference with Gov. Waite,
at which Adjt Geu. Tarsney and Brig.
Gen. Brooks, of the Colorada National
Guard, were present.
The monster crowds are slowly dis
persing: and the police have gone out on
their regular beats. No mob violence is

TROUBLE TOMORROW ALMOST CERTAIN.
Late tonight Gov. Waite issued an
order calling out every company of mili
tia in the State. They are to come to
tyenver immediately ready tq act.
The Colorada National Guard consists
of two regiments, one with headquarters
here and the other in Pueblo. . The en
lire force can muster probably 1,200 men.
The Governor says the companies here
are not sufficient to cope with the crowds
and police force. They cannot reach
Denver before Saturday.
The sheriff will attempt to cause the
arrest of Governor, Adjt. Gen. Tarsney,
and Brig. Gen. Brooks early tomorrow
The United States troops will remain
in the city until peace is assured, and tne
nrominent men will continue to urge
peaceable means of settlement.
As Gov. Waite'seems insensible to ar
guments looking to arbitration, peace can
come about onlv by the withdrawal of
the city hall people or by sotne action ot
the courts that will restrain tne governor,
Tbe situation now looks serious for to
morrow. HISTORY OF THE TROUBLE.
To understand the situation it must be
known that some vears ago the citizens
of Denver asked the Legislature to give
them a new charter that would take the
police, fire and public works department
out of tne hands ot the munioioarity land
put it in tho hands ol boards officered by
appointments made by the Governor. It
was believed that this would resort in
removing the matter from the corrup
tion of politics.
Gov. Waite had shown a desire to
make these departments subserve bis
political ambitions and has tried to make
all ot them political boards filled with
The deposed members applied to the
district court and obtained a temporary
injunction to restrain the Govtrnor, the
Mayor and Uie new members from taking
noasestsion of the office of the police and
(jre ljtrd by force.
This was objected to, but after argu
ments had been heard Judge Gr.ihain de
clined to remove the injunction. Then
after several days' deliberation the Gov
ernor decided to ignore the injunction,
and so issued last night his order to the.

"OLD BLANFORD CHURCH.
Beautiful Poetic Lines Copied From a
Pane of G'ass in This Ancient
House of Worships.
The following lines, written on a pane
of glass in "Old Bltindl'o'd Church," at
Petersburg, Va., wen-copied into the
Prayer-Book of Mrs. .J unes G. (Miry E.)
Stanly, formerly of New-Bern, by Mis
Kate Beck with, many years ago. They
have been attributed to many persons,.
among others, the actor. Their author
is not known, but their beautiful expres
sion of the true spirit ol devotion and
poetic sentiment are well worthy of a
writer of great fnne.
Old soldiers will well remember Bland
ford Church. It was on the C mlederate
lines around Petersburg in the late war,
and its old church-yam, where great
numbers of soldiers are buried, was the
scene of many a stirring incident. Burials
there were often attended with much dan
ger, and in some instances funerals had to
turn back, notably that of a clergyman
so heavy was the firing thereabouts.
The Church is not very far lrom the
famous "Crater," and is about r lie same
distance from the Federal '-Foit Sted
man," in another direction.
Mrs. Stanly was Aliss Mary Wilkins of
New-Bern. Miss Beck with is now .Mrs.
Spauld'.ng of New York.
Bristol Parish, in which Bland ford is
situated, was organized 'in 1642, but a
church in this immediate neighborhood
was not built until 1720, and Blaudl'ord
Church, in its present situalion, not until
17iJd. It was often called the "Brick
Church." Thomas Jefferson was the con
tractor for the first. church, while Thomas
Ravenscroft contracted to boild the
church substantially as it now si amis.
These as the names of others; and doubt
less relatives of those mentioned; are too
well known to require comment. Around
the old church cluster reminiscences of
early Colonial days, ot the Revolution
and of the Confederacy, and among its
Vestrymen are included many names dis
tinguished alike in North Carolina and
Virginia. Graham Daves.
Lord,! Thy Church shall, next to These, j
Best btloved ol all things be.
Thither at each hour of prayer,
Shall my hastening steps repair;

For the opening of Thy gate,
Lest a word I fail to share
Of the Holy service there.
At what time the welcjme bell
Shall of prayer and praises tell,
Let its notes be heard at morning,
Or at eve ring out its warning,
Sweeetly tolling, shall its sound
Bid me to the holy ground.
Vain excuses, idle pleas,
Well may suit cold worhly ease;
Hearts that warm and thankful are
Will for God no trouble spare.
Help me Lord, lest I stray
From Thy Church and Thee away.

Though the wintry wind may blow,

coming is that the taxes in this
