Stock Yard Trouble in Chicago.
New York, April 27. Amidst pludits

post, G. A. R., initiated the particular

ing an inscription giving the chief
events of General Grant's career.
Before turning up the - soil, com
mander Freeman- said! "We gather
today not simplv as representatives of
hundreds of thousands living and dead
whom he led to victory, but of the entire
nation of men who wore the gray as well
as men who wore the blue. Now in the
presence of almighty God and those
witnesses we lay the foundation of a
monument which shall tell to all the
world that the United States of America
does not forget her heroic dead."

VON MOLTKE'S LAST MOMENTS.
His Physician Tells of the Last Acts and
Death of the German Soldier.
Berlin, April 25. Count Von Moltke's
physicians, speaking of the dead general,
said he often spoke of the fine state of
his health considering his advanced
years. The general rose, earlier than
usual Friday, tor the purpose ot seeing a
relative off who was starting on a jour
ney at noon. He drove to the upper
house of the Prussian diet and there re
mained three hours. He subsequently
walked to the staff headquarters, where
he spent twenty minutes in laving out
the details of some plans. " Then he re
turned home, and after supper indulged
in several games of whist. He appeared
unwell, and toward the end of the last
fame suffered from an attack of asthma,
le greatly amused his partner during
the progress of the game, and succeeded
in making a grand slam. His niece then
proposed that a young artist who was
with them play. The count sat in an
easy chair and listened for some time.
He became uneasy and retired to his
room. His nephew, being somewhat
alarmed, followed. He asked his uncle
what was the matter. The count looked
up and tried to speak, but immediatelv
collapsed, falling into the arms of his
nephew. He. was still breathing when
laid on the bed, but crave no sitrn of pain.
He suffered the death he had often
wished for. He often remarked how
beautiful the death of those was who
die of synoope.

HUNT HOME AGAIN.
Declares the Northern Pacific Has

' Walla Walla, April 2o. This even
ine G. W. Hunt, president of the Ore
gon & Washington Territory railway, ac
companied bv Mrs. Hunt and children
and Assistant General Manager Her-
. A t X" TTnn-
in an interview with a reporter, refused
to give any information as to his future
movements, stating that he was not yet
prepared to tell his intentions. In an
swer to questions he stated that the sale
of the Hunt road was, so far as he knew,
to C. B. Wright, of Philadelphia, and
not to the Northern Pacific ; nor was it
Wright's intention to sell or turn the
road over to the Northern Pacific.
Hunt did not deny that he would con
tinue to act as president of the company
and general manager of the road.
Slavin Must Fight or Crawl.
vNkw York, April 25. Professor Wm.
Muldoon. who has Jake Kilrain in charge,
gave a free expression to his feelings this
evening on the matter of the little tiff
which took place between Charlie
Mitchell and Kilrain late Friday night :
'If Slavin wants fight," he said, "he
will get it, and will get all he wants of it
without Mitchell seeking a bit of cheap
shoddy advertising. Now, if they mean
business, which I doubt, and if they are
not a crowd of bluffers in the control of
a bluffer, as I believe Charles Mitchell
to be, here is a chance. As Kilrain's
manager, I will engage that he will meet
Slavin in a ten-round contest before the
Granite Club, for the purse they offer, at
any time that may be agreed upon, and
so soon as Slavin can get ready. There
is not any use of the party cavorting out
to Cincinnati in search of Sullivan, whose
engagement will not admit of his fight
ing, but you see Mitchell's fine hand in
it. He wants to make a big bluff at
Sullivan as an advertisement. Kilrain
is ready for Slavin. He does not need to
go west looking for a man.
If Sullivan should meet Slavin that
would be the end of Slavin. If Slavin is
not a bluffer like Mitchell he will get
ready for Kilrain. This is his chance.
With Slavin now, it is accept or crawl."
No Action at Present.
Washington, April 25. No action
will be taken by the treasury depart
ment at present in the case of Phoebe
Cousins, removed from the position of
secretary of the board of lady managers
of the world's fair, and which was
brought to the attention of the depart
ment yesterday by C. H. Jones, chair
man of the committee on finance of the
exposition. When the voucher of the
lady who succeeded Miss Cousins as sec
retary for her salary for a portion of the
month of April, which she will have
served, is presented to the department
for approval, the department will then
have something as a basis upon which
to take action. Meanwhile nothing can
.India In a Bad Way.
Calcutta, April 25. The Englishman
in a smi-official article, says the suppress
ion of the opium trade in India will pro
voke a revolt among the Sikhs and other
warlike races of that country. The only
possible way to recoup the loss to the
revenues from the opium traffic is by
again imposing cotton duties, absorbing
the famine fund, doubling the income tax
and adding one shilling to the salt tax,
which would cause misery and death
among thousands of the inhabitants.
Otherwise England would have to pay
India 6,000,000 yearly.

Cured of a Superstition.
Speaking of. superstitions among sick
people a hospital physician said: "Upon
one occasion one of the convalescents
was sitting near the window when he
observed a small dog barking furiously
while running, along the ground direct
ly underneath. Suddenly the animal
stopped, and looking upward began to
sniff the air and then commenced dig- -ging
in the earth, at a furious rate and
keeping up an incessant whining. The
patient called an attendant and told her
that he wished to be pnt back to bed, as
the time was fast approaching for hi&
demise. The nurse remonstrated and
tried to laugh the man out of the absurd,
notion, but it was without avail, and.
the patient had his wish granted and for
several days grew rapidly worse.
"I inquired -into the cause, and upon
being told tried to make the man see
how foolish it was to relinquish all hold
he had upon life. But the idea had such
a firm hold upon him that 1 was finally
obliged to resort to extreme measures,
and threatened to send him into the
streets to die if he was not better in
three days. As 1 anticipated, the dread
of dying upon a public highway coun
teracted the effect of the presentiment,
and within thf allotted time the patient
improved wonderfully, and was after
ward discharged a cured man cured,
as he afterward told me, of both his ail
ment and his superstitions. " Chicago
Louis .he Eighteenth and Talleyrand.
The duties of my position kept me in
Paris and made it impossible for me to
go and meet Louis XVIIL I saw him
for the first time at Compiegne. He
was in his stedy M. de Duras brought
me to it. The king on seeing me held
out his hand and said to me in the most
amiable nay, the most affectionate
manner: ."I am very glad to see you;
both our houses date from the same
epoch. . My ancestors were more clever
than yours; had it been the reverse, you
would say to me today, 'Take, a chair,
come here near me, let us speak of our
affairs'; whereas today it is I who say to
you, 'Sit down and let us talk.' "
I very soon did my nncle, the arch
bishop of Bheims, the pleasure of re
peating to him the compliments paid by
the king to our family. I repeated them
the same evening to the emperor of
Russia, who was at Compiegne, and who
with much kindness asked me if I was
satisfied with the king. These were hist
own words. I have not been weak
enough to relate the opening of this in
terview to any other person. Talley
