    The Columbian.
0. E. Ehrdll, 1 r ji,..,
Fill DAY, JULY, 31, 1885.
l'rlnco Henry of Ualtonburg, tho
forlunalo young German who has just
married Beatrice, Queen Victoria's
youngest daughter, has hitherto been
very poor,lu9 military pay amounting to
S tOO a year and his'patornnl allowanco
being only 250.
Thcro is much dissatisfaction at tho
selection of Kiversldo Park as tho burial
placo of 'General Grant. Tho prevail
ing publio sentiment is that the nation's
hero Bhould bo buried at tho national
capitol, aad this sentiment is undoubt
edly correct. Tho gravo of tho soldior
and cx-prcsldent should not bo used as
an attraction in a publio park.
Tho only material chances inado in
tho Rules of Nomination by tho report
of tho committee which was adoptod
by tho Democratic convention last
Tuesday aro these:
Tho cumulative system of voting is
abolished, and only one vote can bo
given to each delegate
Tho dolcgato election will bo held on
Monday instead of Saturday.
Both changes aro good ones. Tho
first simplifies tho manner of voting,
and tho second will provont a good
deal of Sunday work in endeavor? to
manipulate; delegates.
Thero is every reason to beliovo that
tho nomination of Samuel Smith for
tho office of sheriff on Tuesday last was
fair and honest in every respect. His
nomination camo as a natural result of
a determination on tho part of a
majority of tho party to put a stop to
questionable means of securing office.
Tho canvass of all tho candidates so far
as wo know, was properly nnd lawfully
conducted, but thoro was a strong sus
picion that a combination existed bo
tween two of tho candidates, and that
that combination was manipulated by
tho samo element and directed by tho
samo head that undertook to lead a re
volt in tho democratic ranks last fall.
Tho suspicion may havo been unjust,
and unfounded. However that may
be, it had tho effect to wnilo those who
aro opposed to anything that smacks
of ring rule, upon tho strongest of tho
two candidates who wcro known t- be
outsido of tho influcnco of any combi
nation, and Mr. Smith's nomination
followed as a natural sequence. Thero
may bo a lesson in this worth remem
bering. The Rejntblican of last week says :
Tho laboring men who aro working for
from ninety cents to n dollar a ilay hi this
community nnil board themselves, begin
to cnqulro ot each other, about when tho
good times promised uudcr a democratic
administration will set in. These assur
ances were so po9itlyo that many voters
wcro misled and cast their vote for a
change. Nono for tho better is apparent
but every day makes tho depression still
worse. Business In Bloomsburg Is more
depressed than It lias been for twenty-flvo
years. Thcro Is less being dono and wo
need not be surprised that there is illscon.
tent apparent. The change has noi
brought tbc promised improvement, and
from alt indications the prospects are far
irom ungut.
Tho Democratic party never mado I
tho assertion that if it wero placed in
i lower it would bring about good times,
t did say that tho Republican
party had mado such promises
repeatedly and failed to keep them, and
asked tho country to try a chango and
Bcojwhethcr it would make any differen
ce in business. Tho republican party
lias always claimed to bo the only
party that could tun this nation ; its
great battlo cry lias always been that
it alono could bring prosperity
to tho people, and that if tho Dem
ocratic party camo into power that all
furnaces would be closed, and a gener
nl panic result. Tho Democratic party
claimed that business cannot be control
led by thj administration, and that
prosperity depends upon tho laws of
supply ana demand.
Tho Republican forgets that within
fivo years tho men employed by republi
can manufacturers of a highly protected
industry wcro paid only 08 cents a day
in tins town and that it has been a
long lime since laboring men received
moro than a dollar a day, under any
republican administration. Our con
temporary makes a statement that will
not bear investigation, when ho says
that business is moro depressed than it
has been for twenty-live years. It is
no duller now than it has been for
three year! ;it is not nearly so dull as
it was in 1H77, when a republican occu
pied tho White IIouso ; it is no duller
than in 1880 when tho organs nnd tho
orators of tho G. O. P. predicted a gen
eral smash if Hancock should bo elect
ed, and promised great prosperity in
caso of Garfield's biicccss. Well, Gar
field was elected, aud most of his term
was filled by Arthur, and for four
years thcro was no improvement.
Then tho peoplo said "wo havo had
enough of these falso promises. Let
us try a change." And ho tlio chango
was made, and lo and behold, boforo
tho now administration is fivo months
old our contemporary wants to know
why it does not causo a sudden revival
of bujincs.", why wages aro not higher,
and inonoy moro plentiful. If they
aro right that an administration con
trols tho business of tho country, still
thoy ought not lo expect that a Demo
cratic President can do in a few months
what successive republican Presidents
filled lo do in so many years.
Wo havo no doubt that thero is dis
content at tho low wages paid laboring
men. It would ho strange if thero wero
not, for it is almost impossible for a
laborer to keep a family on what ho
gets for his work, but it is nothing
now. It is tho samo complaint that ho
has inado for many many year?, even
when ho was induced to voto tho repub
lican ticket under promises of bettor
times. Tho promises w"ero nover re
deemed, the bolter limes never came.
And now our neighbor would make it
appear that tho Democracy made tho
name old promises Inst fall, that tho

tho bigcer organs, and their hopo U

Gen. Fill Hugh Leo has been lioint
natetl for governor of Virginia, by tho
Baibicro ought nover lo havo boon
appointed, for ho is an unropont
ant robcl. His appointment by Gen.
Davis as assistant Pension ngont, was
a blunder, and his obstlnato retention
is tin insult to all Union soldiors nnd
an injury to tho Dcinocratio party.
It has finally boon decided that Gen.
Grant will bo buried in Hlvcrsido
Park, Now York.
Tho surroundings of this park aro
so lovely that it Islieliovcd it will ulti
mately becomo tho most aristocratic
residenco region of Now York. Tho
ground rises to a bold bluff nbovo tho
Hudson river nnd tho views from tho
rivor drivo-way aro very charming,
giving glimpses of tho uiululating,trco
covorcd park, tho Bhlning sketches of
tho river dimpled into innumerable
wavelets and tho Wcchawkcn heights
opposite. Tho drives of Klversido
begin at Seventy-second nnd extend
three miles to Ono Hundred and Twenty-ninth
street. Thcro aro several of
theso drives curving gracefully along
tho banks of tho Hudson, in soino
places throo hundred feet abovo tho
water. Tho bank slopes gradually to
tho shore and the intervening space be
tween tho drives and tho river is filled
with groves of tall trees.
Llttlo has yet been dono to improve
this park, which in its primilivo.stato
is a favorito resort for picnic parties
and promenades of peoplo living in tho
western portion ot tho city. Tho drives
nro broad, level and macadamized so as
to bo smooth as a iloor. A heavy
stono parapet runs along tho brink of
tho hill, with recesses for scats, pas
sages and steps down into tho groves
along tho river bank. Workmen aro
now engaged inthoimprovementof the
park. At tho Seventy-second street
entranco is a handsorao bronzo statuo
of Washington, which was subscribed
for largely by tho publio school child
ren of Now York and was uuvciled by
thera last year on tho Fourth of July.
Tho hills continno to riso in an ea9y
grade to Ono Hundred nnd Twonly

Sir Moses Montefiore Dead.
London, July 28. Sir Moses Mon
tcfioro is dead.
Sir Moses was, perhaps, tho best
known Jow in tho world, not excepting
tho Rothschilds, with whom ho wa3
united with his wife. Ho was born at
Leghorn, Italv, on the 24th of Octo
ber, 1781, and was thercforo over a
hundred years old. Ho roccivcd a
commercial education and began lifo
in tho Stock Exchanges. His first trip
to tho Holy Land was in 1827. Ho
was an eminent philanthropist whoso
life and fortune have been devoted to
tho upholding and protection of tho
Jews in all parts of tho world, and es
pecially in Palestine, to which ho mado
many pilgrimages and where much of
his fortuno was expended. Ho was
mado a Baronet by Queen Victoria and
Sir Robert Peel Tho centennial anni
versary of his birth was celebrated in
almost every country on tho globe.
He Stands to His Guns.
Tho President is showing that ho
can tako a position and stick to it in
moro ways than one. 1 ho disappointed
office-seekers who desired to tear his
before-clection civil servico promises to
taticrs in order to furnish them places
have been aware for some tirao that ho
is a very stubborn man who stands by
his utterances. Now it is the cattle
men who havo been pasturing their
herds on Indian lands who aro learning
that ho means what ho says. They
havo been to Washington to complain
that forty days is too short a time in
which to move their herds, and ask an
extension. The President has declined
to extend tho time, and tho cow-boys
and their employers will Bpend what is
left of tho forty days in trying to obey
tho order.
It is refreshing to realize that for
onco an executive order means what it
says. It may bo a great inconvenienco
to office-seekers and cattlo ranchers to
havo a man in tho White Houso who
uses plain English and then stands up
to his utterances like a man. But tho
peoplo who havo no axes to grind will
relish this sort of plain dealing, and
after tho soman and clamorous crow
who beliovo in making promises to tho
ear to bo broken to tho hope, havo got
tired of lashing themselves into a iury
over their disappointment it will be
found that the publio service of tho
country is being performed moro effic
iently than ever before. Aa this is
what tho peoplo want thoy will havo
increased respect lor tho man who can
mako a pronuso or isetio a proclamation
then buck to it. J tines.

Thoro is cood nuthority for tho
statemont that thcro Is a larger num
ber of workmen employed now than
thero was a year ago, nnd at somownat
bottor wages. Thero Is an improve
ment in that respect, of not very de
cided nppearanco as yet, but still enough
lo mark tho beginning ot a better con-
lition of business, iho tears ot a very
great shortago in important items bf
agricultural production, which nt tho
beginning of the season caused consid
erable uneasiness, aro not going to bo
realized lo tho extent that was appre
hended. The feeling of despondency
in regard to tho harvest has in n groat
measure disappeared as tho crops liavo
approached maturity and given evidence
that tho damages ot a sovcro winter
and a lato spring havo been to n great
extent repaired by tavorablo conditions
later on in tho season.
Tho whoat crop is Rolno to bo larger
than tho croakers wcro willing to allow,
nnd it will bo found that much that has
been lost In quantity will bo mado up
by tho superior quality of tho produo
lion. Tho other cereals aro satisfactory
both in yield and quality. Tho tcxtilo
production will bo moro than ordinarily
abundant ami good. With evidences
of a rovival of business both in manu
factures and trade, and a reasonably
fair crop with which to feed tho people,
with somo lo soil lo toreicn customers,
tho prospects of belter times ahead

"hounded" to his ruin by tho Democra

"tho Jjrco Traders and tho Inntl re

enemies of American industry spared
those other great ship builders, Cramp

is not mado plain. Mr. Robeson in an
interview with a reporter of tho Bos

in tho Navy Department Mr. Roach

and adds: "In theso eight years Mr.

Very Near Death Before.
During tho latter part of March Gen
eral Grant's life hung by a thread and
tho whole country nvaitcd with feel
ings of Iho greatest apprehension tho
news of each day. Tlio doctors had
now becomo convinced that the disease
wos cancer of tho tongue solely and
that all they could do was to caso tlio
General until his inevitable death.
They remained in tho houso Jay and
night. At times tho General beoamo
very much alarmed and gave up all
hope. On that eventful evening when
he was expected to dio at any moment
tlio forms of all newspapers wero held
n readiness lo issuo a special edition.
There wcro in tho houso Doctors
Shrady and Douglas. Dr. Shrady had
staid up tho previous night alono and
was completely worn out. JJr. Doug
las, too, being an old man, was very
tired. Tho family wero up all night
and witli them wero Dr. Newman and
General Badeau. General Grant was
very low all night and in tho early
morning had an alarming hemorrhage.
Tho family wero gathered around him,
every member crying. Tlio General
reclined in ono chair, with his pillow
behind him nnd rested his feet on
another chair. Dr. Shrady was sleep
ing in another room. In rushed Dr.
Douglas and roused him with the words,
"It's all ever."
"What 1" said Shiady, "do you moan
to say that tho man is dead!"
"Noj not dead, but ho will bo in a
few minutes. Nothing can savo him."
JJr. ohrnuy lumped up and ran into
tho room where tho General was. Mrs.
Grant, weeping, reached out her hand
and said : "Ulysses, do you know
mo ?''
Tho General's chin was resting upon
his breast. Ho slowly raised his head
and said "'es.''
Dr. Newman exclaimed : "It is all
or ; I will baptizo him." Ho went
quickly into another room, got a silver
bowl, filled with water, camo back,
dipped his hand into it and said : "I
baptize thee, Ulysses Simpson Grant,
in tho name ot the father, bon and
Holy Ghost-
The ucncrnl slowly raised his hoad
and remarked, "I thank you' Then
turning to his family he raised one
hand and uttered tho words, "I bless
vou all."
To Doctor Newman ho observed :
"Doctor, I intended to nttend to this
Meanwhile Urs. bhrady and Douglas
wero consulting with each other in Iho
corner. The strain was intense.
Dr. Douglas said : "Ho will dio
sure. Ho has gono ; tho pulso has left
tho wrist."
Dr. Shrady, as if struck by inspira
tion, replied : "I will civo him bran
"l on cannot do it ; ho cannot swal
low," said Dr. Douglas.
'I will givo it to him hypodermical
ly," answered Dr. Shrady.
"How much 1" asked Dr. Douglas.
"A barrclful if necessary," retorted
Dr. Shrady. Dr. Shrady rushed into
another room. "Harrison," said ho to
tho man-servant, "havo you any bran
dy V Harrison answered "Yes," and
handed him some. Dr. Shrady rushed
back and gavo Grant a syringcful in
cacli arm. Tho General revived, tlio
pulso returned to his wrist and his lifo
was saved.
Dr. Newman walked into an adjoin
ing room with Dr. Shrady and askod :
"Doctor, how is ho t"
"I don't think ho will die," said tho
"Our prayers havo been answered,"
said Dr. Newman.
"I think it was tho brandy," respond
ed Dr. Shrady.
Tho General rallied for a few days
and there was no other severe attack
until tho night when the spells of
choking camo on. Then ho was con
vinced that ho would soon die. Ho
went about the room on his hands and
knees and coughed with groat effort.
"I am choking to death,'' ho said, in
a foeblo voice.
"Bo quiet, bo quiet, you won't," said
Shrady , "it will bo over in a mo
ment." Drs. Shrady and Douglas passed up
and down tho room, looked at tho re
porters on the sidewalk in front of tho
house smoking their cigars and swing
ing their caues and wished very much
to chango position wilh them. Sinco
that timo tho General's system am' ap
petite had grown much better, ft was
no longer necessary to givo liim mor
phia to iiiduco lest. During his se
verest attacks the physicians would 'al
most beg of him not to tako any, but
ho insisted and it was given him in
small quantities only.
Gen. Grant's Death.
After n slrugglo of nine months
against an iiiourablo disease, Gen.
Grant breathed his last on Thursday
morning July 2a. Ho had been rapid
ly failing for two days. After their
long vigil, on Thursday morning with
tho coming of light tho doctors urged
tho family so strongly to tako bomo
rest, Idling them that they would bo
called in caso of a crisis, that Ihoy ro
lucllautly complied. Dr. Sands had
gono to tho hotel at 8 o'clock tho evo
ning before, nnd took no sharo In tho
vigil. Drs. Shrady and Douglass
wero left on tho watch, with tho assis
tance of Henry, tho nurso. At about
5 o'clock Dr. Douglass walked up to
tho lawn in front of Iho hotel and
Btood for a few moments admliing tho

in sharp relief the peaks and should

J soon joined Dr. Shiady again. Dr.
Nowman camq tip to tho hotel also
rtbout hnlf an hour after, and remained
ten or fifteen minutes. Ho said tho
General Was dying by inches just as
Dr. Douglass had said a fow minutes
before. Dr. Newman then returned
nnd paced slowly up and down beforo
tho cotlngo for half an hour, while
Drs. Douglass aud Shrady sat on the
veranda. Henry was in tho sick room,
never taking his oyes off tho dying
man. Occasionly ho applied to the
Gcnoral's lips a cambrio wet with cool
water, as ho had dono at intervals dur
ing tlio night. Tho lips moved in re
sponse to the touch, but it was only
All during tho night also tho doctors
had given tho General hypodermic in
jections of brandy ns often ns requlr
cd lo stimulate tho hearts action.
Sometimes the intervals between the
iiinctious weio not longer than fivo
minutes, and sometimes thoy woro an
hour. This was kept up from 7 o'clock
Wednesday evening until shortly bo
foro tho death.
About 0J- in tho morning Dr. Now
man asked Dr. Shrndy if thoy should
not go up to tho hotel to breakfast to
gether. Dr Shrady said ho thought it
was unsafo to leave tho Uoncral and
Dr. Newman went up alone. Tho
doctors wore seated on tho porch at
7:45 whon Henry tho nurse camo nut
and summoned them to tho bedsido of
Iho dying man. All tho family wcro
in tho room at the time, excepting tho
grandchildren, U. S. Grant and
Nellie Grant, who wcro asleep in the
nursery. Mrs. Grant was by tho Gen
eral's side, looking into his fnee. Mrs.
Sartoiis was immediately behind her
mother, looking over her shoulder.
Col. Frod Grant was at tho hoad of
tho bed.
On tho opposite h'kIo of tho bed from
his mother and directly boforo her
stood Jesso Grant and U. S. Grant Jr.,
and near tho corner of tho cot on tho
samo side as Jesso aud near to each
was Mr. N. E. Dawson, tho General's
confidential secretary. At the foot of
tho bed and gazing directly down into
the uenerals lace wcro Mvs. Krcd
Grant, Mrs. U. S. Grant Jr., and Mrs.
Jesso Grant, while somewhat removed
from tho family circle wero Henry tho
nurse, Harrison Tyrrel tho General's
body servant. Dr. Newman had
gono to tho hotel, and was not present.
Mrs. Giant controlled herself remark
1 ho doctors noted that already tho
purplish tinge which is a signal of fin
al dissolution had settled beneath tho
patient's linger nails. Tho hand that
Dr. Douglass luted was growing cold.
iho pulse had tlultered beyond tho
point where tho physician could dis
tinguish it from the pulse beats In his
own finger tips. Tho respiration was
very rapid, but so weak that its pain
ful sound was gone, and it was scarce
ly audiblo at all.
Mrs. lirant almost constantly strok
ed the face, forehead and hands of the
dying General, and at limes pressed
botli his hands, and, leaning over,
kissed his face.
Tims twenty minutes or so passed,
tho General lying with his oyes closed.
Mrs. Sartoiis eagerly sought to ho
recognized by her dying father. At
last ho opened his eyes and Ihcy met
those of his daughter. IIcis was the
last face ho Haw. In a moment moro
the tenso and weary lcok went out of
his race, his eyes closed, and with ono
faint breath his lifo left him. The
watchers waited for another breath in
a Hilenco so complete that the singing
of the birds outsido tho cottage sound
ed loud and clear. The doctors in a
low voice annouueed that tho end had
come, and they withdrew. Tho nurso
closed down the dead man's eyelids,
and tho family (.'roup pressed lo the
bedside, and ono after the other,
touched their lips upon tho quiet face.
a i'ainu:ss ii:tii.
Tho General's death, as his physi
cians predicted it would be, was duo to
sheer exhaustion. Dr. Shrndy said
somo weeks ago that there would come
a time, how Boon ho could not tell,
when tho General would bo unable
longer to tako nouri-ihment, and that
then the end would be near. 1 to reach
ed that point on Tuesday, and from
that time went steadily down hill wilh
no hopo of saving him. Tlio littlo
strength on which ho lingered so many
hours was duo to the consumption of
his own tissues, with no possijijlity of.1
replenishing them. When ho'dicd ho'
weighed much less than 100 pounds
a mero skeleton, in his conscious
moments in this last relapso he know
that death was near at hand, but ho
did not fear it in tho least. IIo had
not, in fact, from the first shown any
dread of death, his only apprehension
having boon that the end would bo ac
companied by extremo pain, ilia doc
tors assured him that ho should not
Buffer, and they took such measures
that ho did not. His dissolution was
absolutely painless. From midnight
until tho moment of his death ho never
made n motion, except in opening his
oyes auu now uuu men luuiiiy Burring
his lips when a wet cloth was applied
to them.
Tlio body was embalmed, and will
remain nt Mt, McGregor until August
1th when thoy will bo taken to Albany
whero thev will no ni.siato until Mon
day August 5th. They will bu taken
to .New lork where thoy will lio

will then bo buried in Rivcrsido Park,
