After wailing three months Mr.
Sparks addressed a letter to the Secre
tary of War requesting his immediate
attention to tho nuiltcr. 1 his result
cd in a reply to tho resolution being
sent a week luter. The lint called for
is printed in the Record. It was ao
oompaniod by letters explanatory from
Assistant Adjutant General It.C. Drum,
and Paymaster General B. Alvord
Tbe amount of extra emolument lias
been calculated up lo December 31,
1879, since when iho doublo salaries

The first notable violation of the law
by Gen. Sherman shown by Iho tell
tale lint, is that of Frederick Dent
Grant. Ho appears aa First Lieuten
ant of tho Fourth cavalry, but at pres
ent doing duty as Lieutenant Colonel
and aid-do camp to Lieutenant General
P. H. Sheridan. The commencement
ol his absence from his regiment was
Fobruary 22, 1873, and that of his
present duty March 17, 1873. The
amount ol present annual extra com
pensation is $2,1 10, and the total
amount of extra pay and cash value
of emoluments over and above that
duo lo his linoal rank Is $16,531.10.
He graduated from West Point July
12, 1871, and was appointed on Gen.
Sheridan's staff just twenty months
later. Yet the regulations say it shall
o ba X brow itnd badly wound
ed soldier (Forsyth) was removed lo
mako room for "Colonel" Fred., and
sent to join his regiment, although
entitled to the place by reason of his
length of service.
. J. C. Audenreid, with his lineal rank
of Captain, and assigned to the Sixth
cavalry, is filling the position and
drawing the pay of Colonel and aid-
do-camp to Gon, W. T. Sherman. Ho
is said neve to have served a day
with his regiment. The duto of his
appointment to bis present dnty was
July 1, 1803, having then been absent
from the regimont (Sixth cavalry)
sinco March, 18C2. F.xtra compensa
tion at $2,620 has been paid him year
ly, amounting up to the end of last
year to $.14,131.01. Uis proper salary
is $2,000 per year.
J. K. Tourtcllotte occupioa a similar
position on Sherman's staff. Ho has
drawn in direct contravention of tbe
law $25,638.2.1, whiuh is less than tho
other, becuuso he did not enter tho
charmed circlo so soon. Tbo Colonel
of his rogiment (Carr) is now fighting
tho Jndiuns on ono-third less pay than
his Captain. M. V. Sheridan, brother
of Lioutonanl General Sheridan, is a
Captain of the Seventh cavalry, but is
receiving pay as Lieutenant Colonel
and Military Secretary to "Phil." at
$1,86 above bis regular falary, and
has hail $21,209.82 in all, outside of
his pay as Captain
T. 11. Bradley, a First Lieutenant of
infantry, at $1,800 a year, has novor
joined bis regiment but is assigned to
special duly In the War Department,
with extra pay at $1,082, and rank as
Major, having received in all $8,084.75
extra. Thrco Captains in tlio Twenty-fourth
Ohio regiment aro assigned
on recruiting service. One of those,
J. W. Clous, who was ''promoted"
January 5, 1878, is a brother in law ol
Mitjor liickbam, editor of tlio Dayton
Journal, tho man who found Mr.
Now. for a little of Iho nepotism
which tho list discloses. J. McKoe
Dunn, Jr., son ol the Judgo Advocato
General, is promoted from a Captaincy
to bo aid-decamp to Brigadier General
John Popo, at an extra stipend of
$160, having received In all $14,481.67.
J. W. Pope, son of Gon. Pope, is awayl
from bis command without tho re
quirements of the regulations being
fulfilled. Colon Auger, First Lies ten
ant of the First cavalry, is aid de-camp
to bis father and bos received $4,305
extra for It C. B. Schofield, First
Lieutenant of tho Second cavalry, is
aid-do-camp to his brother, Genoral
Schofield, at $200 a year extra.
The report ia very interesting. It
merits careful perusal and study.
The editor of the Washington Post,
in alluding to this scandal, remarks:
A deal of commotion In military cir
clos, and much commeal among civil
ians, has been occasioned by the pub
lication in the Post of the facts elicited
by tbe Sparks resolution, calling on
the Soerolary of War for various spe
cific Items of Information in relation to
offieera not on duty with tbelr respec
tive regiment or corps.
The case ol Colonel F. D. Grant
first challenges attention. Here was
a mora boy, just out of Iho Military
Acadomy, having the rank of Second
uieuionam, promoted to the position
t , . . . .
oi Lieutenant uoionei ana aid do-camp
to General Sheridan, In direct violation I
of law not onlv direct, but inten
tional, This young man has beon un
lawfully paid about $17,000 for sup
posed services in a position to which
no man had a right to ensign lilui. It
in by far Iho worst cash on Iho army
register, but lien. Hliernian i not tho
Mrs. Grant aked Gen. Sherman to
huve her boy Fred, detailed in a simi
lar cupacily on his stall', hut ho flatly
declined. Ho told Mrs. Grant that
Gen. Grant would not expect him to
do an act of such groris injustice to
older officers, which would bo regard
ed as a most oljoctionablo prcomlont.
Failing lo induce Sherman to gratify
her wish, Mrs. Grant applied to Sheri
dan, and he consented to the shameful
arrangement, although a wounded vet
eran had to be sent lo the front in or
der to mako room for tho downy youth
from West Point.
If there is any such thing as the
American theory of government, if we
are not a fraud as a poople and if our
system is not un arrant humbug, tbe
sod of a President has just the same
rights in civil or military life as tbe
son of a butcher or baker. But this
stripling was put over the heads of
gray. haired, veteran officers, men who
bad rccn many years of hard service,
for no other reason than because he
was Iho son of a President. No such
cxamplo bad over before disgraced tho
military service, and it is duo to Gen.
Sherman lo put the blame where it be
longson Gon. Sheridan and Belknap,
who was the Recretttry of War, and
ready to destroy discipline and decen
cy in the army, if ho might tboreby
oblige the royal household.
As lo Captains Audenroid and Tour
tollotto, of Gen. Sherman's staff, it ap
pears that they have seen service and
made a good record in tho field. Tbe
only objection to their present posi
tion is that It is in violation of law. If
they are to be retained, there should
bo somo legal authority for their re
tention. ' Thcro are, howovcr, many other in
stances of gross favoritism, prejudicial
to good discipline, insulting to old and
ablo ofliceis. There aro many men in
first rata positions in tho army, and
who will be supported hy tbe labor of
tho toiling masses for life, who havo
no other recommendation than that
their ancestors wore men ol mark.
Thcro too much of tho family influ
ence, both in Iho army and navy. Wo
have too many illustrious dead beats
who live on tho fame achieved by
their romoto ancestry.
Besides this class, there are a good
many staff officers who were appoint
ed because of their poverty and gen
eral worthlcssncfs. Being unable to
make a living in any business in civil
life, their influential frionds got them
appointed on tlio list oi genteel pau
pers, whiuh list includes all who draw
pay that they do not earn, and were
never expected to cam.'

for horso stealing, has departed from
bis nsual custom, and in a letter to tbe
Board earnestly appeals for a favora
ble consideration of tho case in the in
terest of publio justice. Thejudo
says, referring lo the prisoner's docu-
mont: "1 am satisfied from evidence
furnished me that Simonds has this
volnablo Information and will faith
fully impart such as ho may not al
ready have done."
ROW II U STORT IB RtaARDtD.
S. S. McDowell, prominently idenli
fled with a horso thief detective asso
ciation, and to whom Simonds has ad
dressed his statement, conudois him
truthful, lie says: Simonds bos dis
closed secrets and hiding places of a
formidable gang of thieves and general
marauding plunderers, who have in
tested this and other sectior.a of tbe
Stale tor many years. 1 have acted
on his statement, and on evidence thus
obtained havo hcon able to bring to
justico parties charged with theft and
to find places where horse thieves had
rendexvoused. Tho Board of Pardons
ia holding the caso of Simonds under
advisement, and at tho next mooting
it will doubtlesa recommond his par
don in accordance with ita usual cus
torn of respecting the wishes ol tho
STORT or Till CONVICT.
Simonds stntos that tho II. W. M
II. T. and C. C. Union has a largo
membership thoroughly organitcd, ex
tending from Augusta, Mo., to Central
Indiana, and spread through Now
York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Their
two main routes through this State
embrace the counties of Potter, Clin
ton, Clearfield, Jeflorson, Armstrong,
Butler and Lawrence In tho southern,
and Mercer, Crawford and Erie, branch
ing into Venango, Forest and Warren
In their northern. Thcro are three
main rendezvous In Pennsylvania
namely, in Potter, Jefferson and For
est counties. Asido from these main
dena tbny have transient stopping
places or way stations every thirty
or forty miles from Maine to Georgia.
It was organised in 1867, and grew
out ol tho Loomis gang in Central New
York. Ho explains his knowledge of
the gang by saying that, being born
and reared in Oneida county, N, Y.,
he joined at the ago of sixteen the
1 17th Now York volunteers, sorved
about three years and was honorably
discharged in September, 18li5. Ho
held for moro than a year a salesman's
position in tho store ol Messrs. Brad
ley A Wolty, cloth importors, Whito
street, Now York. Relinquishing this
employment botause his health re
quired an open air lifo, be bocamo as
sistant to a noted horse trainer, and
finally ael up in that business on his
own account. While at Home, N. Y.,
ho was applied to by a Mr. Loomis to
undertake to conquer a valuable, but
wholly vicious horse. Thoy agreed
npon the terms, and Loomis look him
to a large farm fourteen milea distant,
where he was to stay for several days
handling the hrtrso,
Stram-e aoiaes which Simonds heard
al night tempted bis curiosity. Lot
ting himself out by a window he spied
upon the operations of the gang ol
thieve in w hose rendezvous he was
hoiiHud. Pinolly he was discovered,
scixcd.und threutoned with deuth if he
would not join the organisation and
lake their oaths of secrecy and fideli
ty. In order to savo his life he at
length promised silence and wo allow
ed lo go li ce, except that be was oblig
ed to report every two weeks for six
months at tho bouse of Wm. Loomis.
This promiso he claims bo faithfully
kept. Years ago one of tbo leaden of
tbo gang began a syslom of porsecu
tion and annoyance against Siinonds,
which he now claims has fully absolv
ed him from furthor obligations to
scroen tbo marauders. Thoy have
sought to criminate him as a thief and
twice tried lo kill him. He has, in
return, lor years beon gathering and
treasuring up information against thorn,
which he now proposes to give to tho
Pennsylvania authorities, with his own
services, for tho detection, punishmont
and breaking np of the gang if tho
Board of Pardons grant him his free
dom. Ho acknowledges that, driven
lo desperution by adverse circumstan
cos, he appropriated funds entrusted
to him and became a criminal. Sinco
his incaroeralion he haa received from
the horse thief gang assurances that
tbey would procure bis release on con
di'.ion thul bo should become a mem
ber of their organization, and threat
that if ho divulges anything against
them bo will bo hounded by them to
A GOOD SEXD OFF.
Tho i4rmy Si Navy Jovrnal has never
boon accused of parlisanhip, and
when alluding to publio affairs, has
been fair. In announcing the nomi
nation of Goneral Hancock, tbe editor
Tho nomination of the Senior Major
General of tho army Major Goneral
Winfiold Scott Hancock by the Cin
cinnati Convention, which we urged in
tho Journal of two weeks ago to-day as a
consummation devoutedly to be wished,
has now passed bey odd that stage, and
has become a consummated reality
The nominations thus achieved that
of General Garfield at Chicago and
that of Genoral Hancock at Cincinnati
mako it suro that in Iho coming elec
tions tbo issues of Ibo war will bo loft
as tho war settled them, for these are
nominations of soldiers who fought in
tho war. Turning to tbe spocial nomi
nation ot tbo present week, we may
say with emphasis that in the entire
list of the Itcgular Army, no name
could be found more worthy of tbe
Democratic nomination for tho Presi
dency than that of Winfiold Scott Han
cock. A aoldior of remarkably brill
iant record, a gentleman of tho highest
personal reputation, an officer always
accessible and courteous, Goneral Han
cock has succeeded in winning and
koeping tbo goneral rcspoct of nil
branches of the service, sta'ff and line.
It is a good omen, too, lor Genoral
Hancock that he has, by strict adher
ence to his professional dutioa, been
removed from heated partisanship.
Ho comoa nntremmellod by politics
which have divided his own party aod
have paused bitterness in all parties.
His attitude has not been that of the
politician who socks to " carry water
on both shoulders " in such issues, but
it has simply novor boon in tho line of
his duties as an officer ol tho Govern
ment to lake sides npon tbein. When
over any opinion or any publio ques
tion bos come before him for a decis
ion, that dooixiorrtioe been given direct
ly and decisively as his aotion under
the reconstruction measures shows.
But he has not boon Inextricably in
volved in wrangles ovor financial tbeo
ncs and in the personal dickorings
and jealousies which would have heavi
ly handi capped other candidates at
Cincinnati. It is not too much to say
that he is the strongest candidate tho
Convention could havo named.
There is another point worth noth
ing. In discussing the nomination of
General Garfield, we pointed out tho
National wisdom as well aa the party
expediency ol nominating a soldier for
the Presidency. We illustrated it by
the careers of Washington, Monroe,
Jackson, Harrison, Taylor, Grant, and
Hayes. We showed bow tho Piesi
dent is the law executing power, as
distinguished from the law-framing
power, or Congress, and tbe law-inter
proting power, or tho Judiciary. Wo
called attention to tbe fact that the
temperament of tho soldier was the
ono suited to this function of tho Pros!
dent. It remains to add that General
Hancock has beon especially fortunate
in being almost or quite tbe most con
spicuous oxample in our day of tho
soldier insisting on the supremacy of
the civil over the military law in
time of pcaco. He carried this princi
ple so fur as to act upon it to an ex
tent and at a time not acceptable to
bis military superiors. Ilia devotion
to tbo principle has boen undoubtedly
a characlorixlic quality ot General
Hancock, and henco even those who
would object to a military candidate
must make an exception In his lavor.
tioneral Hancock, bas moroover,
understood tho art ol calling around
him able and upright men. His staff
during tbe war was always a skillful
and efficient one, and sinco the war he
has surrounded himself with men of
character, of broad views, of exact hab
its and of soldierly fidelity. - W hold
this to be a very important trait in any
Presidential candidate In tbe nature
of things a man occupying a great ex
ecutive position must dolegate much
to be performed for him. It is a high
test ot character and ability how he
selects his subordinates and bow be
