' died suddenly in n tailroad depot at
Mankato, Minn., on tho 13th. He ar
rived on tho Milwaukee and St. Paul
ltoad from the East at 10 o'clock and
taking his satchel in hand he said ho
would walk to tho Omaha Depot, half
a milo distant. Ho was passing
through Mankato on a business trip, ns
ho has large business interests in llio
Northwest. On arriving at tho Omaha
Depot ho entered the waiting room, set
his satchel down and stepping over to
tho window looked out. l'eoplo in the
depot noticed that ho looked pale and
breathed fast, aa though he had walked
rapidly, but otherwise ho appeared in
excellent health. After gazing out of
the window a short time he returned to
his scat and sat down, crossing his legs.
In a moment tho agent and what few
passengers were in tho depot were star
tled and alarmed to see him fall sud
denly forward to tho floor. Tho agent,
assisted by passengers, di'i everything
they could for the unfortunate man,
but it was too late, and with one or
two short gasps be died without saying

Washington-, Jan., 13lb, 1884.
Tho monotony of the week that has
passed was broken by the celebration
of the anniversary of thcBattlo otNew
Orleans. "Jackson's day" as it is call
ed. Tho election of Jackson marked
tho overthrow of a corrupt party des
potism, and it was fitting that tho names
of Jackson and Cleveland tliould be as
sociated in celebrating the victory of
New Orleans when the oountry is re
joicing in the overthrow, though Cleve
land, of the gigantic and despotic oli
carchy of offico stealera and holders
known as tho Republican parly. The
celebration hero was Democratic, elo
quent and successful.
Another event was the adveut and
departure, all in forty-eight hours, of
Col. Laraont tho private secretary of
the president-elect. Col. Lamontcame
to loook for a home, and to scau the
field of bis future labor. He bad not
been in the city before. He has a wife
and children and must have a house.
He did not succeed in getting a house,
but will try again, after the fourth of
March, when n tew hundred residences
will doubtless bo vacated.
It is difficult to believe that only six
weeks more remain of President Ar
thur and a Republican administration.
Preparation is sleepless, and oxpecta
tion is on tip-toe for the fourth of
March. It is estimated that there will
be 250,000 visitors hero at the inaugu
ration. I cannot think that there will
be so many, but tho number will doubt
less bo large. As a usual thing the
interest of tho country in Washington
matters ceases with the adjournment of
Congress, but this year it will grow
with the inauguration of a new presi
dent, a new policy, the appointment of
a new cabinet, and numerous other
changes in all the departments of the
It is edifying to seo the desperation
with which a largo number of drones
and sinccurists are trying to get them
selves converted into real little civil
service reformers and democrats. Many
of them are shuffling over with an
alacrity, that is not graceful.
Congress is at work on the appropri
ution bills. The Navy bill has beon
passed by the House, and tbe consular
and Diplomatic bill is under discussion.
1 heard a JiepuDUcan statesman, so
called, bewailing tho fact that the train,
ed and improved consular and diplo
matiu persons), which he said had been
established in the last eight years by
Evarts and Frelinghuysen, must give
place to uemocratio bummer and
ward politicians. Well it will be n
pity if it is so, but if this noxious class
must have offices, by all mesns let's
send them to the foreign courts where
they will have nothing to do, and will
therefore be incapable of barm. Mod
em diplomacy is an anachronism and a
farce. X hero is not the wliu'.ilust no.

governments to send representatives
here, we have no toreign relations.
aienin ami electricity, and mo press

how utterly needlees to keep them up
between our country and trans-Atlantic
powers. It would be better to retail
our flimsy ships, erusing in foreign seas,
exposing our weakness, and costing
millions annually, it would be better
to dismantle our diplomatic establish

with steam, and the Atlantic cable will
furnish us prompter ami morn accuiate

I was walking on Connecticut aven

The situation of the Blaine in this

Mrs. Grant Declines Vanderbilt's Offer.
Till. (IRNKIIAt.'s llK.UUS.
The Grant-Vanderbllt correspondence
in whioh the jrcat railroad millionaire
makes a proffer of n fortune to the ox
President's wife, and In which Mrs,
Grant makes n flat final denial of the
gift, was the subject of general com
ment in all parts of the city. Tho gen
eral verdict was that tho letters reflect
ed credit allko on tho man who made
the offer nnd upon the lady who de
clined it, nnd that that the nntcomo nl
thu correspondence! has been to cut off
a great deal of gossip, and possibly un
pleasant talk, wliich might havo been
started had such a sum of money beon
taken from Mr. Vanderbilt b'y tho
Grant family. A ctiriom fenturo of
tho case in the mind of tho public was
that tho final offer of Mr. Vanderbilt
to make n trust fund of thu proceed of
tho property sale for tho benefit of Mrs.
Grant, after being ncceptcd on her be
half by tho General, should then have
been declined in the short, decisive let
ter of Mrs. Grant. To those who know
tho Grant family well and the peculiar
ities of tho sovt-ral members of it. there
was no groat surpriso felt at tbU cu
rious feature of thu correspondence. It
has frequently been tho habit of Gen.
Grant to allow a matter to grow and
seemingly givo it hU approval, and
then when the decisive moment came
to put his foot down and make a final
disposition of tho whole matter in such
a way as showed that ho was watching
tho whole case closely and had taken
the shortest way to make his view of
the matter felt.
It was in this way that ho allowed
tho recent effort of Messrs. Field, Drex
cl and others to run on even when ho
was informed of every movo made,
and when the thing had gono as far ns
he cared to have it, caina his letter nip
ping the whole scheme in tho bud. Ho
had given no previous sign or intima
tion that tho plan was not meeting
with his entire approval, but thero was
no mistaking the import ot his note.
So it was with tho recent bill reported
in the Senato by Mltchell.the chairman
of tho Pension Committee,which would
have given Geu. Grant a pension ot
$5,000 a year. This ho disposed of at
once by his letter of Deo. 5, in which
ho declares that ho would not accept
the pension provided in that way, even
though tho bill was passed unanimous
ly by Congress, and received tho ap
proval of tho President. He did not
in tbis note, give way to an expression
of opinion on tho "other proposition,
which has been suggested for the act
ion of Congress, providing for the re
instatement ot the General at tho posi
tion at the head of the army which he
left about sixteen years nito to enter
upon his duties as President of the
United Slates. The passage of such a
bill would be entirely in the line of
military etiquette and it is believed and
guardedly asserted by the few friends
who enjoy intimate relations with the
old warrior that he would accept such
a position, and then as a retired officer
of the Unitod States Army feel that he
occupied a position which would enti
tle hun to tlio pay coming with the du
ties of a retired officer.
The bringing about of such a result
would require very careful legislation
lest it should be used as a precedent
which might be extended to all branch
es and grades of tho army as well as
the navy service and open tho way to
no end ot complications in the luture.
It is thought, though, that the problem
can ba successfully solved and tho mat
ter disposed ot without bringing about
any hitch in the soni6What ueiicato ma
chinery of army codes and decisions.
Thero'is besides a Btrong popular feel
ing in favor of some such measuVc, in
stead of tho rather indelicate method
of making out-and-out donations to
the object of the nation's solitude.
1 he lietieral himseltisa very busy
man just now and spends a fair allow
ance ot each day at his desk engaged
upon his literary work in connection
with army remembrances. Ho has
found that writing is n very agreeable
way of passing the time, and it seems
to take his mind from the occurrences
of last spring, when the Grant & Ward
bubble burst into thu tace ot the world
and drew so much scandal about tho
Grant name. It enables biro, when he
wishes, to deny himself to all visitors,
and it was this excuse which met Tin:
Wokm reporter when be called to gel
the Ueneral a views of the act ot gen
erosity which Mr. Vanderbilt has bo
nearly succeeded in accomplishing.
ft is now estimated by tho author
that the first volume of his memoirs
will be ready for tho publisher by the
1st ot May. As yet no houso has been
selected to attend tn tho mechanical
part and business end of the book,
though almost every publisher in the
country has sent in a request that he bo,
accorded the exclusive right of putting
his imprint on the title-page.
An intimate friend nf the Grant fam
ily said of tho letters and the situation:
"I think that Mr. Vanderbilt has done
enough to make the old General moro
than ever his friend. The one thing
about which thero was solicitude on
tho part of Gen. Grant was that the
many gifts which he had gathered up
in his tour of the world should find a
suitable resting place under the caro of
the Government at Washington. There
was it narrow chance of this failing
after thu collapse of tho Wall street
firm, but tbis is now happily averted
and thero will bo no risk now of these
gifts, really presented to the United
States through Gen. Grant, finding
their way into private collections and
museums here and there over the
country. This possibility was really
worrying the old General, and now
that it has been disposed of he is in a
very good framo of mind, though ho
says little of the many troubles whioh
havo crowded upon him of late. Of
course I could not venture to question
Mrs. Grant in regard to such a matter
as that touched upon in hor letter to
Mr. Vanderbilt. That sho declines
ought to bo final without question and
I don't think that there was nny other
reason boyoud a sober second thought,
a full realization of tho entire import
of tho letter in which the entire sum
is accepted on behalf of Mrs. Grant.
Had his letter ended thu correspond
ence there might havo been much talk
provoked, nnd I think that it was with
tho idea of making tho salvation of tho
foreign gifts doubly sure that thu let
ter of acceptance was written,"
There were many who wished to
seo tho military method of disposing of
the perplexing problem of Gen. Grant's
suppoit tried, and opinion was very
outspoken in that direction. Assistant
United States Treasurer Thomas Ac
ton and Collector Robertson were in
favor of it, also President Simmons of
the Stock Exohango President Stew
art, of tho United States Trust Compa
ny, and President Dowd of tho Bank
of North America. As far as heard
from it is not likely that Mr. Vander
bilt will do anything further In tho
matter, at least for the present.
Tho following ktler from P. T.

n impression prevails, mid tho idea
is frequently expressed with confidence,
that tho internal revenue taxation is
more burdensome and it is felt more
grievously in tho Southern Stales than
in the North. With a view of ascer
taining what the fact really is, we havo
examined tho records of tho Internal
Revenue Department, and find that
during the hscal year ending June 30,
1883, tho tobacco manufactured, cigars
made, and spirits produced in these
two great sections of tho country,
omitting unimportant quantities were
as follows :
Total Product, 163, 781, 4J0 Puiinas.

These figures show that, while in
manufactures of tobacco other than ci
gars and cigarettes, tho former slavo
States exceed the former freo States bv
about 30 per cent., tho production of
cigars and cigarettes in the North is
about 700 per cent, greater than in the
South, and of spirits about 280 per
It is evident, therefore, that, wlulo
the taxes on these two great products
may bear more oppressively upon the
Southern States, by reason cf their in
ferior ability to pay them, yet in actual
amount thu contributions to thcievciuin
from theso sources are very much
greater in the North than they are in
