CONFERENCE OF THE NEWSDEALERS.

On the 7th inst. about eighty delegates from eight States assembled in the hall of the Ancient Order of United Workmen at 510 Sixth Ave., N. Y. James G. McMurray was in the chair. The discussion largely turned on the subject of devising means whereby the power of the American News Company could be broken. The debate ended in the adoption of a resolution providing for the appointment of a committee of three, whose duty it should be to organize a stock company to compete with the American News Company, the stock to be offered to newsdealers for six months. If by that time sufficient money had not been subscribed, outside capital should be invited to invest. The committee consists of President McMurray, P. J. Henzel, of Albany, and editor Daly, of the Newsman, who offered the resolution. A resolution offered by E. J. Nieuwlander, of New York, instructing the Executive Committee to ask the Postmaster-General to establish a system in connection with the mails whereby newsdealers throughout the country could be supplied with their newspapers, books, and periodicals at the lowest possible rates, was also adopted. Editor Daly was appointed as the representative of the Association to appear before the Committee on Post-Offices and Post-Roads on matters affecting the interests of the newsdealers.

The following officers were then elected: President, James G. McMurray; Vice-Presidents, C. B. Swift, Philadelphia, and Miss E. Denroche, Friendship, N. Y.; Secretaries, John L. Butman, Lincoln, R. I., B. F. Gordon, New York, and J M. Shawcross, Providence, R. I.; Treasurer, John R. Suter, Brooklyn; Executive Committee, P. J. Henzel, Albany, D. E. Sullivan, Providence, R. I., J. A. Roys, Detroit, Mich., P. J. McGrath, Brooklyn, and E. C. Rahne, Philadelphia.

AUTHORS SEEKING NEW MARKETS.
From the Commercial Advertiser.

A FEELING of restlessness has taken hold of our famous fiction writers, and not a few of them will be found browsing_this winter in entirely new literary pastures. Frank Stockton, for example, tears asunder from the Century, and his next serial story will appear in the Atlantic Monthly. The Atlantic, if it gains Stockton, loses Charles Egbert Craddock, since that rather erratic little woman has sold her next novel to Harper's. Then, Harper's will lose Howells' next long novel, which has been bought by a syndicate of newspapers. Scribner's, which generally has the first call" on Robert Louis Stevenson's work, does not get the novelist's "South Sea Letters," the exclusive right to these having been bought by the New York Sun for $10,000. Sarah Orne Jewett makes her début this winter to a new constituency of readers in the Ladies' Home Journal, which periodical has also bought Mrs. A. D. T. Whitney's next novel. And thus the order for "all change has seemed to go along the literary line.

The book publishers, especially those houses which do not issue a magazine, are not very much pleased at the growing tendency of fiction writers to give first publication to their novels in serial form. It is exceedingly rare nowadays to see a novel from a well-known pen appear first in book form. The reason is that the author is realizing more and more the double revenue and larger reputation to be had from double publication. Good novel-writers, who can add a famous name to a good piece of work, are undoubtedly scarce, and with the keen competition among magazines, the prices have increased. Whether serial publication helps or injures the sale of a book is an open question. Publishers differ on this point, and in its discussion the author nat

FOREIGN BOOKS ON THE FREE LIST.

IT may be expected that books printed in foreign languages will hereafter be sold much cheaper than heretofore, as the duty has been taken from all books printed in other than the English language. The clauses of the tariff act which will interest booksellers and readers of foreign literature are the following under the free list clauses of the bill:

OBITUARY NOTES.

THE REV. DR. GEORGE BARRELL CHEEVER died at Englewood, N. J., Oct. 1. He was born at Hallowell, Me., April 17, 1807. He was a classmate at Bowdoin College with Longfellow, Hawthorne and Jonathan Cilley. He was prominent in temperance reform and in the anti-slavery movement. From 1839 to 1870, when he retired from the ministry, he filled the pulpits of the Allen Street Presbyterian Church and the Church of the Puritans in New York City. Part of this time he was also the principal editor of the New York Evangelist. His writings were largely controversial and on religious subjects.

The work has been inspired and edited by Mrs. Annie Nathan Meyer, a trustee of Barnard College, and will be published by Henry Holt & Co.

A NEW monthly has been started by E. L. Kellogg & Co., of New York and Chicago, called Our Times. The plan of this paper is to give a clear idea of what is going on in the world from month to month. Though designed specially for teachers, it is of interest to all who wish to keep track of the current events of the world that contribute to its real progress. It gives all the important news of the month without the murders and scandals. A clear, comprehensive review of the contents is also given, with numerous suggestions as to teaching them.

FATHER WILLIAM P.

He promises that all such letters sent to him shall be carefully returned to their

owners.

GEORGE BANCROFT, the historian, celebrated his ninetieth birthday October 3. But for a gradual inevitable loss of muscular energy, and a very gradual fading of his powers of memory, Mr. Bancroft might seem a score of years younger than he is. According to a correspondent of the Washington Post "he still is an untiring reader, and keeps remarkably well up with the advanced thought of the times."

PAUL LEICESTER FORD, 97 Clark Street, Brooklyn, N. Y., being engaged in the preparation of an edition of the writings of Thomas Jefferson, and desiring to make it as complete as possible, requests that any one possessing any of Jefferson's letters or manuscripts will communicate with him. Or if such persons will loan these to Mr. Ford for a few days, he will guarantee their safe return; or, if they will have them copied at his expense, and will enclose a bill, he will gladly pay for the copying, and give due credit for such assistance in the work.

MRS. OLIPHANT is now well advanced with her "Memoirs of the Life of Laurence Oliphant," which Messrs. Blackwood & Sons expect to publish at an early date. The work will be looked forward to with keen curiosity, says the London Athenæum, “ for Mrs. Oliphant has been fortunate enough to secure a mass of Laurence Oliphant's private correspondence, commencing with letters written in his boyhood, which may afford a key to open up that singular double character which contains at once the clever and brilliant man of

society and the studious and dreamy mystic. One side of Laurence Oliphant's character was so mysterious even to his friends that any light upon it coming from his internal revelations will be welcome, while the adventurous life of which he has afforded so many glimpses in his writings contains highly romantic elements. We understand that it is more especially to the religious and mystic side of his career that Mrs. Oliphant has devoted her attention."

MR. RUSKIN, says the St. James' Gazette," is to issue two volumes of poetry, with accompanying plates, early next year. Whether the contents be new or old, gleanings of the past years or the harvest of advanced age, has not been divulged. Few of Ruskin's admirers know, and fewer collectors possess, the very rare volume of poems privately printed by him in 1850, for which the bookworm may hunt the British Museum Catalogue in vain. It is post octavo, runs to 283 pages, and is one of the scarcest books of which we know. The copy lying before us at the moment is stamped across the back Poems, J. R., and on the side the symbolical lyre appearspossibly a binder's freak perpetrated without the author's sanction. All the poems contained in the volume were written between the ages of fourteen and twenty-six, each being carefully assigned its date. The Oxford prize poem, Salsette and Elephanta," written in 1839, takes up twelve of the pages, and an earlier poem "The Gipsies," runs to eighteen. It is in couplets, and was badly beaten in the Newdigate Competition of 1837, when Dean Stanley carried off the coveted honor.

HARPER & BROTHERS are to publish in this country Sir Walter Scott's "Journal," reproduced from the original at Abbotsford. It will be edited by David Douglas. The amount of matter is nearly double what Lockhart used in his biography of his father-in-law. There are two volumes. MISS KATHARINE PEARSON WOODS, of Baltimore, whose "Metzerott, Shoemaker" and "The Mark of the Beast" have attracted so much interest, has written a new story entitled "A Web of Gold," which will be published shortly by Messrs. T. Y. Crowell & Co. It deals with the relations of labor and capital, and contains many brilliant and dramatic scenes and well-drawn characters.

HARPER & BROTHERS have received notification from Reuben B. Davenport, editor of the New Haven Morning News, that Capt. Charles King's book, "Campaigning with Crook," contains libellous matter, and that he proposes to bring suit against the author and publisher. The Harpers have forwarded the document to Capt. King and will for the present stop filling orders for the book.

THE result of the inquiry made by the Society of Authors as to the extent to which pirated editions are introduced into the colonial book market, to the detriment of English holders of copyright, appears to be that in Australia and New Zealand present legislation is sufficient, and that in India the evil is but partial. But in Africa and other parts of the British dominions the 20 per cent. collected by the Custom-House on the published price of books registered at Stationers' Hall, even if carefully levied, appears, according to the current number of the Author, not to be a sufficient deterrent. The fact that the lists supplied to the Custom-House are often a year old or more, and that registration of books is frequently neglected too long, may partly account for the success of contraband enterprise. In any legislative attempts that may be made to correct the evil, the Society expresses itself confident of the co-operation of the Colonial Office. -Athenæum.

CORRECTION.-A representative of the firm of Sabiston & Murray, 916 Sixth Ave., New York City, has called upon us to deny the statement made in the circular of E. W.
