flcn. I.ec's Cnban Report.
Washington, D. C, July 6
"President Cleveland will go to Chica
go," was the very positive assertion of a
gentlemen who is a personal friend of Mr.
Cleveland, but is not prominently identi
fied with either of the political parties.
Continuing he said: "Mind you I do not
say that Mr. Cleveland will publicly con
demn the Chicago ticket and platform,
J should not bo surprised in the least if ho
did; only that he will not support it."
This assertion fits in with the stories which
have been circulating in inside political
cirjle3 in Washington for several days.
According to these stories, Mr. Cleveland
not only wants the gold Democrats to
bolt the Chicago convention, but to nomi
nate a gold ticket ot their own.
A week ago it was announced that no
member of the cabinet would go to the
LconveDtion. Saturday came tue tctegrapti-
Pt- . .i. . c . ir .
ic announcement tuai oocreiacy oioiiou,
the most rabid gold man of the lot, had
turned up in Chicftgo, claiming that he
did not go on account of the convention
but merely to pay a visit to his son, who
lives in that city. It is said that Secretary
Morton is there as the personal represen
tative of Mr. Cleveland and that he is there
to try to bring about a bolt by the gold
It is not believed In Washington that
there will be any bolting of the conven
tion, but it is believed aye known
that the gold men will individually fight
the ticket in every way possible, not only
with ordinary political methods but also
with business methods. Oae of the latter
which has already leaked out will be to
use the banks to embarass the silver men,
by refusing to discount their notes or to
allow them to renew any of their obliga
tions now held by the banks when they
become due. The forcing of Mi. St.
John to resign the presidency of theMer
chantile National Bank of New York
city, because of his Views on the silver
question, is said to have been a part of the
scheme to have the banks all over the
country put the sctcws on their silver
customers, This is u new wrinkle in
politics. How it will work remains to be
The newest' edition of "Old Glory''
with foity-five stars, made it? first public
appearance Saturday, it -being an inva
riable rule ol the government to add the
6tars for new states on Independence
Day. Quite a number of the forty-five
star flags have been made up by the gov
ernment flag-makers, but Uncle Sam can
be very economical sometimes, and these
uew flags will not be issued to the army
until the old ones are worn out. The
Navy has its own flag makers, and all our
ships will now fly the forty-five star flag,
as the new star can easily be added to the
flags on hand . "
Corporal James Tanner, who came
near to being the most lionized man at
the big Confederate Reunion at the Jeff
Davis monument celebration in Richmond
last week, has returned to his Washing
ton home, and has been in his character
istic way paying his respects to those ot
his fellow members of the G. A. R who
have indijtly ciiried him for going.
Afier saying that he made no pretence of
representing anybody but himself at the
Richmond celebration and broadly inti
mating that what he did was nobody
else's business, the Corporal said:
"Twenty years ago, when I was com
mander ot the G. A. R., in New York,
I broadly advocated and went on record
as advocating the Hrewing of flowers
upon the graves of the confederate dead,
who had found a sepulchre in our north
ern communities. Not, I said, in honor
of their cause, which we had fought and
conquered, but because we who hat! met
them on the battEld knew that they
were brave as tlie'wU'est; that they were
among the best of the world's soldiers
in other words, ticy were American
soldiers. After ueuty years spent in
thought an-1 speech along that line, 1
make no apology to anybody on God's
green earth for upholding those senti
ments. I fought for ifc reunited couutry; it
has cost me ten ;bly. I have been three
times uuder the surgeon's knife and saw.
but I dou't regret all the sacrifice and j
suffering ii our children can enjoy in j
peace and prosper iy i glorious union of i
all the states. If anybody fought for the
union cause with tlie hope that we should ;
be forever at iwur. I think he made a mis- i
take in enlisting -mung us.

TAPS VIRGINIA COAL ITELDS.
Award ofContrnct lor a Railroad to
Nontbport, '. C.
Norfolk, Ya. The foreign and coast
wise coal trade and the grain export trade
of Baltimore and Norfolk are shortly to
have a formidable competitor to the south
ward. The contract has been awarded
for the const 'lclioii of a railroad from
Wilmington to Southpoit, N. C. Ai
Wilmington the new road will connect
with the great lines entering there, and
will itself be extended westward. The
latter, Southport, has one ol the
finest harbors on the coast, being
accessible to vessels of the deepest
draught. There will be located
large coal piers tapping the coal fields
of Southwest Virginia and the grain
regions of the West via Yadkin Yalley
line. The new road will probably make
Southport a formidable rival of Northern
cities. J. E. Challenger, President of the
