and the end is not yet. A clear sweep has
really been made In Pittsburg. The liabil

It Is said that the bank’s method of book

10 per cent, and last night, after business
hours, W. N. Kiddle, president of the
bank, through his attorney, filed a confes
sion of judgment in favor ot the directors
of the bank for $99,750. The judgment was
entered and an execution of attachment is
sued and put hrtbe hands of the sheriff,
with instructions to levy upon a long list
of persons, corporations and institutions

charter was purchased from a defunct
banking establishment and is very liberal.
It provides that no stockholder or officer

Pitt8bubq. May 28.—The deficiency in
the Pennsylvania Bank still grows, and
this morning has reached $1,200,000. A
heavy defalcation is also hinted at, which
it is claimed will reach nearly $1,000,000.
The directors have been in session all day,

Should be granted except on grounds jus-
Ufled by the Scriptures, and also that a
committee should be appointed to confer
with the Governors of all the States to

conference that divorces should not be

report as amended was adopted.
The portion of tlqe report of this com

considerable debate was that referring to
the "color line," as it is called. It came

no student shall he excluded from any
and every school of the church on ac.
count of race, color for previous condi
tion of servitude. The minority report
stated that in view of the action already
had on the question, farther action was
•ncalled for. The minority report was
voted down. GoyernorhPattison made a
warm argument in defense of the report,
and was frequently interrupted by hearty
applause. A layman called for a vote by
tellers. It was not sustained. Then a
clergyman did the same thing, with the
same result. A motion to postpone was
then made, and .lost, and finally the main
report was adopted by an overwhelming

The committee then reported a series of
resolutions denouncing polygamy and de
claring it to be the sense of the representa
tives of Methodism, in the General Confer
ence assembled, that it is the duty of the
legislative department of the government
to proceed without further delay, to enact
laws which will summarily depose from
political and official power in the
Territories of the United States those
who either practice or advocate
polygamy as a civil or religious right. An
effort was made by Rev. Drs. Buckley and
Curry to amend the report by striking out
the clause which proposed to deal out
summary chastisement not alone to those
who practiced bnt those as well who ad
vocate the Utah system.
Governor l’nttison made a strong ap
peal tor the adoption of the report. Hts
remarks bad a telling effect upon the del-
S ates and audience, and the report was
opted with applause.
One of the inoet important of the papers
thus presented was a report of the commit
tee on the Book Concern which ahowe
that the profits accruing in New York and
its depositories were |2Sl,0i2;ln Cincinnati

summing up, the report etated that the af
fairs of the Book Concern during the pas’,

ever before. This report, as well as a
number of others, submitted by the same
committee, was adopted, after which a

IiMAXATOua, May 90.—Delegates to the
national Greenback convention are begin
ning to arrive freely, and the bnaz of po
litical gossip fills the air. Dr. Leonard
ttya he looks for TOO delegates and 10,000
visitors. But they will not be here. A
meeting of the national committee trill be
held to-morrow to make final arrange
ments for the convention. General J. it.

George O. Jones, of New York, who says
that Butler la not a Grcenbacker: that he

THE HOT SPEINOS FAILURE.
Bt.’Lous, May 28.—Andrew Brown, the
missing president of the Hot Springs, Ark.,
bank which failed yesterday, was arrested
here on the Iron Mountain train this
morning. Brown was accompanied by a
lady named Mrs. Steel, of Peoria, Ill.,with
whom he was reported to have fled from
Hot Springs. Brown and Mrs. Steele were
first taken to a hotel and afterwards to
jail. He professes to return willinglyand
says it is an outrage to tsjee the woman
too. It -is supposed she knows where the
money is, which Brown took from the
TnE HAWLEY FAILURE,
Boston, May 28.—The official statement
of the assignee of F. A. Hawley & Co.,
bankers, who recently failed, shows an in-
deotedness of *342,568 and assets of *32,-
585. There are in additiun to the above
indebtedness contingent liabilities of *50,-

Prelates In Council.
Baltimore. Md„ May 28.—The Roman
Catholic prelate! of the Archdiocese of
Baltimore held a meeting this morning at
the Archi-episcopal residence of Arch
bishop Gibbons. The following bishops
were present: Gross, of Savannah; Nor
throp, of Charleston. S. C.. Vicar Apos-
todcof North Caroiinn; O'Hara, of Scran
ton; Moore, of St. Augustine, Fla.; Kain,
ot Wheeling; Becker, of Wilmington,
Del., and Keene, of Richmond. The pro
ceedings nAt conducted with closed doors,
hut the conference is held to consider va
rious matters to come before the plenary
counsel. Similar conferences have been
held in other Archdioceses.
The bishops concluded the business for
which they assembled and several of them
left for their homes this evening. It is
understood that one of the principal sub-
iects to lie brought before the council in
November next will be the gathering of the
colored race into the church, and the pro
vince of Baltimore will urge upon the
council the necessity as well as the duty of
the church to look after the religious wel
fare of that race.

Eastman, May 28.—Six prisoners, Fuller,
Iryant, McRae, Durr, Wright and Math-
.*>, ail colored, escaped from jail at 4
o'clock to-day. They effected an opening
through the iron grating, climbed to the
roof, remoTSd some brick and descended
by a blanket to the ground. They were
seen running to a branch by a white hoy,
who reported. A posse will be started In
THE WALKINQ MATCH.
Setter Work Yesterday—What the Com
mittee la Doing, Etc.
Messrs. H. T. Powell and Felix Gamp,
!rom the Macon Library, were met in At
lanta yesterday by Messrs. Finch, Parrott
ind Amarous, of the Atlanta Library, and
die coming walking match between the
two cities freely and fully discussed,
The walkers will be numbered from one
to twelve inclusive—the Macon men tak
ing the odd numbers and the Atlanta men
the even. These numbers will be made of
some suitable material and placed
both in front and back of
the walker. The color adopted for Ma
con was blue and red tor Atlanta Ma
con, in addition to the above distinguish
ing features, will have uniform, Atlanta
sidopting variegated suits. The uniforms
will be decided upon later.
There will be twelve scorers, six for each
place; four markers, two selected breach
city. There will be eleven judges, five for
each city, and one from some other place
chosen by the ten. , .
Each walker wlU be allowed one tram

The Muscogee Democrats will ap
point their delegates to the Atlanta
convention of June 18 on next Tues
day. A mass-meeting has been called
for the purpose.
Down to Monday night, the Chatham
registration lists showed 2,890 voters.
Why can’t all the counties in the State
have a registration law. It would he
in the interest of good government.
Union and Recorder: On Friday, Sat
urday and Sunday afternoons this sec
tion was blessed with timely and abun
dant rains. Gardens will now grow
rapidly, and crops and fruit be greatly
As to manufacturing in the South,
the Gainesville Southron says: “The
Georgia Match Company are daily re
ceiving more orders than they can fill.
Who says manufacturing docs not pay
in the South?” ,
The idea of paying people to get out
ia the sun and walk against each other,
for a given length of time, is abont as
absurd an affair as can be conceived of.
Why not pay the man that can do the
most work in twelve hours? Is it be
cause there is virtue in labor?
“Many Citizens” tried to get a com
munication on the ice question pub
lished in the Morning Newt, but it
didn’t know any citizen by thattname,
and so the article did not get in. It is
Strange that the people are so slow to
learn the newspaper rule with refer
ence to articles for publication.
Three wife-heaters were before the
Mayor’s Court in Savannah, on Tues
day morning. One of them was a white
man, but he was released on the ground
of being irrational. A man not rational
enough to lie amenable to the law
ought to be in the asylum. There is
no adequate punishment for wife-beat
ing in Geargia.
The Atlanta Journal speaks of Lee
Clay as “a mean-looking Individual”
who ‘‘would look well in chains.” Tills
shows tlio great adaptability of the
English language to fully depicting
Ilamitic degeneracy. Lee Clay ought to
be forced to change his name. He is a
burglar, while his great namesakes did
not even have wicked partners.
“A contractor and a painter 'enter
tain a crowd on Marietta street,” is
the heading under which the Confuta
tion announces a bloody fight in that
city. The heading probably docs At
lanta injustice. The people of Atlanta
are surely not “entertained” by such
savage exhibitions, and the Conitilulion
should make the necessary correction.
Let us hear from our friends in regard
to prohibition, and who they propose
to send to the Legislature on that issue.
—Clarttville Advertiser. Under the lo
cal option law, the same vote which
would elect a prohibition candidate for
tho Legislature would banish the sale
of liquor from the county. Even if
elected, the prohibition member from
Habersham might fail to get his bill
passed. Tho quickest and the surest
way is tho best way. Settle the liquor
question at home.
Tho following agricultural outlook
presents itself to the Union and Recor
der : “The crop prospect at this writing
is splendid. Itain has been a blessing
in the past week, and now, with a
week. or two of dry weather,
during which time the wheat an-
oats will tie cut and harvested, we
may look hopefully to the future. The
fruit is safe. The gardens are fine.
With a good season in tho latter part
ot June, verily may the plantation ne-
I to May down, do hoe and take up de
: iddle and do how.”
Wise Words for the Georgia Press.
The Timet would suggest that inas
much as the coming campaign will in
volve tho election of a State and legis
lative ticket in Geargia in addition to
the choice of electors of President and
Vice-President, the discussions of the
public prints could be advantageously
varied by the treatment of questions of
important local interest. Among
these questions may be noted a properly
framed and comprehensive assessment
law by the operations of which the
burdens of taxation cjuld be equitably
Another matter of importance is the
need of a promising road law, such as
would do away with tho unsatisfactory
system of maintaining the public high
ways now in use. Again the farmers
of the State are cursed with the depre
dations of worthless dogs whose rav
ages should be checked. The needs
our schools, too, require attention
and the want of a school of technology
is confessed by our most intelligent cit
izens. Many other public needs that
should bo supplied will occur upon re
flection, the agitation of which cannot
but prove instructive, if not profitable.
The question probably of most im
portance that is likely to come before
the next General Assembly is the mod
ification of the powers of the
State Railroad Commission. Public
opinion is steadily tending towards a
curtailment of the Commission’s pow
ers. But whatever tho effect of the
discussion of this question, it should be
conducted calmly and intelligently.
The Georgia press can render the
State good service by taking up the
subjects above suggested, ana they are
referred to now in the hope that their
treatment will occupy the State press

Richmond, Va., May 26.—Capt R. W.
Anderson, the venerable pedestrian who
started from Sumter. 8. C., Wednesday,
May 7, to walk to Boston, reached this
city this morning. The Captain is 93 years
old but is hale and hearty, and has aver
aged 20 miles a day since he started put on
his tramp. He said to-day that before thrj
railroads were built he drove a team from
Boston to South Caralina twice, and he
wanted to see what improvements had
been made, so he determined to make the
trip on foot. He finds very few of tho old
landmarks left, Capt. Anderson will re
main here until to-morrow, when he will
start for Washington, where he expects
to remain a few days to look after his pen
sion for military services rendered in the
war of 1812. Hs carries 17 pounds of bag
gage, and is accompanied bv a little dog
which he says watches over him when he
has to sleep out. He appears to be in
good health, and says that he is in better
condition than when he started out on his
jo'irney. He will take it leisurely along,
as lie is not walking against time.
Tilden Crateful but Must Decline.
New York Tribune.
Albany, May 26.—On a recent visit to
New York Lucius Robinson paid his re
spects to Samuel J. Tilden at Greystone.
It is understood that Mr. Tilden told ex-
Governor Robinson that he had no inten
tion of accepting the Democratic nomina
tion for President. While be felt grateful
for the unanimity with which the Demo
cratic party favored his nomination, he
did not think that at his time of life and
his physical condition he could properly
undertake the responsibilities of the Pres
idency. He could not, therefore, accept
the nomination if it were tendered to him.
Prominent Democrats in Albany in Tll-
den’s confidence confirm the substance of
this statement and say that the letter of
declination has already been written.
