Onr Disappointed Secretary.
Secretary Sherman removed Collector
Tutten, it seems, because Tutten's
friend, McManes, did net vote for Mr.
Sherman at Chicago, after having prom prem
ised se te de. A conversation between
Tutten and Sherman, which Las just
taken place at "Washington, is report
ed in the newspapers, in which the
secretary is made te say very distinctly
that he did net keep his word with Tut Tut
eon because McManes did net keep his
word. He received with incredulity
Tutten's expression of belief that Mc
Manes was only waiting till his chance
for the nomination opened out before
going for hiru. Mr. Sherman evidently
considered McManes entirely tee slew
and cautious with his support, and he
asks the decapitated Tutten, with a fair
show of reason, hew it happened that
McManes could hasten te Garfield with
his one vote, while he restrained his ar
dor from the support of Sherman when
he had ever a hundred votes.
Mr. McManes has net been treating
the secretary candidly; and he has no
geed reason for his disappointment at his
friend Tutten's decapitation. He count
ed, perhaps, upon the secretary's being
afraid te punish him for his lack of faith.
Perhaps it would have been mere pru
dent in Mr. -Sherman te have bided his
time for revenge, and net te have brought
down his whip se manifestly in punish
ment of the crime of premising te vote
for him and failing te perform. Evi
dently the financial ministers bleed is
up. That honeyed dispatch he sent te
Garfield, indicating that if he had any
wish dear te his heart, it was that his
friend Garfield should be nominated,
hardly came from the heart. He could
net haVe been se glad when he is se mad
at Mr. McManes for voting for Garfield-
It is just a little bit disgraceful, un
doubtedly, and impudent withal, in our
secretaref the treasury te undertake te
distribute the treasury offices as rewards
of merit te his supporters for the
presidential nomination. But he is an
old hand at the business. When he took
ellice under Hayes he found any number
of debts of this character contracted in
the seating of that great fraud. He paid
them as long as the eftices held out.
There was some trouble for a geed while
because the debts were mere numerous
than the offices, and te Mrs. Jenks and
ether useful people in Louisiana the sec.
retary oftentimes had te come down
with the hard cash. He was able te
de it because he has accumulated
according te popular belief, great wealth
by the improper use of his advantages.He
is of the men who de net hesitate te use
any convenient instrument for their pur
pose and who believe that the world ewes
them all thay can get out of it. Such
men never can become thieves. A thief
is a fellow who is mean enough te take
what does net belong te him ; but hew
can a man steal who conscientiously be
lieves that ha has a right te all he can
If Mr. Sherman was net far gene in this
belief he could net possibly have con
ceived that he had a right te buy Mc
Manes's influence with the Philadelphia
collectership. He needs a missionary te
instruct him in the fundamental princi
ples of morality. Perhaps new he is in
a-fit state te receive one. Evidently he is a
very much astonished man. He can
not see why Garfield was taken and he
was left, after all the advantages he had
in the shape of plenty of ellices with
which te buy the delegates. He is losing
faith in the power of offices as bribes.
Taken in this frame of mind there is a
chance te prove te him that honesty is
the best policy. He will be likely new te
admit it. But he cannot practice it, we
fear ; he is tee old te learn the art.
We publish a letter from "Wash
ington giving an interview with
an ancient friend of Mr. Til
den, who seems te have been heavily
struck by the Field boom. He certainly
says no mere than the truth about Mr.
Tilden's candidacy ; and in looking about
for a place te lay his head he has
just as surely net found in Judge
Field the worst pillow among the many
presented for our choice. "Whether he has
found the best is another matter. "We de
net think he has. Xe man can be
nominated in the convention but Horatio
Seymour, if he will take it ; and it is
only in view of his possible refusal that
it is at all worth while te consider any
ether candidate. "We have one serious
objection te Judge Field in the fact that
he is en the bench. There should be no
stepping thence into political position.
"We want nonpartisan judges. As far
as possible they should be removed from
the political atmosphere. If it had net
been breathed by the electoral commis
sion judges, the supreme court would net
be held in its present low esteem. "We
have absolutely no defense against party
tyranny if we must have judges who are
no fairer than their party.
Fuem Governer Seymour's home wefchasc 1,500,000 acres of land cast

made by him of his confirmed disinclin
ation te accept the Democratic candi
dacy ; certainly he has a right
te decline. And if his "health
will net prevent him te accept the nom
ination we cannot find fault with his de
termination. It will be unfortunate,
however, in view of the very unanimous
desire of the party for his nomination.
It is supposed te be a divinely im
planted instinct that leads the beasts of

intelligence. It is mere than a

geed money and refuse the counterfeit.

Editors ok the Intelligencer : At the
late meeting of the Democratic county com cem
mittec some suggestion was made about
contesting my seat in the committee, as
the member from the Third ward, Colum
bia. As I was elected te this position
without opposition at the same primary
meeting which elected the delegates te the
county convention, who were admitted
without any sign of objection, the sugges
tion of a contest was a surprise te my con
stituents as well as myself. Upen inquiry
I have been informed that the only
ground upon which tue proposed contest
was te have been made was that I am
net a resident of the Third want. I have
lived in this ward, just where I new reside,
for ever ten years, and have during all that
time voted in it without objection or ques
tion ; for two years I was judge of elections
in it ; once I ran as school director from
it, and I have been repeatedly urged te run
for council from it by the very person who
new raises the point of my non-residence.
I reside south of the extension of Union
street, in Columbia, and north of the Lan
caster turnpike. All the property between
these two lines is in the Third ward, aiiil
always has been. The ward line runs en
the extension of Union street (though it
is net opened), and this line of division
cannot be changed except by due legal pro
cess. It is se marked en all tke maps ; it
has been se recognized by all the assessors,
ami there has never been a shadow of
doubt about it.
The Columbia Jle raid h:is urired that the
Lancaster turnpike is the line, or ought te
be the line, or that councils ought te de
clare it te be the line. There seems te be
no urgency for this declaration, except
with a view te rule me out of the ward in
which I have voted for ten years and of
which the Democrats have unanimously
chosen me county committeeman. This is
hardly sufficient justification te change
ancient landmarks, even if such change
could be made by a declaration of coun
cils, as it cannot. Hence I shall continue
te reside in the Third ward, and subscribe

"Washington, June 11, 1880.
The nomination of Garfield has new
been thoroughly canvassed, and the set
tled opinion among congressmen and
ethers familiar with his record is that it is
a weak one. The Credit Mebilicr affair,
the "Washington ring, the paving contracts,
and the pulp monopoly, will make an
awful lead te carry through the race.
The Democrats have only te make a pru
dent selection of candidates, against wiiem
there are no old scandals, cither true or
false, te sweep the country. Who shall
that man be '. There are many such, and
the convention can hardly go amiss, if it
seeks only the really available man, with

Thu following is the substance of an
interview with a distinguished Southern
congressman, who was foremost in the
Tilden movement in 187(5. and among the
last te submit te the Great Fraud in 1877 :
Mr. Tilden was the strongest man we
could have named in 1870. The issues of
reform, economy and honesty of adminis
tratien, which were then upjierinest in the
public mind, were presented in him better
than they could have been in any one clue.
We wen the fight under him. but some
body blundered, and we lest the control of
the government which the people at the
polls assigned te us. Hew far Mr. Tilden
was responsible for the disaster I de net
pretend te say. It is enough that the sit
uation has changed, and with it the issues
te be met. The questions new are whether
the progress of federal consolidation
shall be arrested. Whether the
states shall live and the republic continue ;
and whether the (treat Fraud of 1870
shall be repeated in 1880 and Hayes seat
his next friend Garfield by force .supple
menting fraud, as Grant seated Hayes. It
is net certain that Mr. Tilden is the man
best fitted te meet these questions. There
exists in some quarters a fear, arising out
of the events of 1877, that he would net
meet another crisis of the same sort with
the firmness, courage and vigor of con cen
ducf, which might be necessary te preserve
us from forcible revolution. We need a
man whose record is perfectly clean,
whose character, public and private, is
untarnished, who represents at once
state's rights and uncompromising union
ism, and who, above all things, is bold,
and net afraid of responsibility. Fer such
a man the Democrats would work with a
will, because they would have some as
surance that if elected he would take the
I am net sure that Mr. Tilden would
be willing te run again. His place
in history is iixed aud a most
honorable one it is. He was elected presi
dent by a great majority, and lest the office
only because he refused te pay for the le
gal attestation of the fact. This eminence
doubtless satisfies his ambition. It is net
credible that a man of his refined tastes
aud studious habits should desire power
for the mere sake of power. The presi
dency would add nothing te the dignity of
his character, and he would naturally be
slew te endanger the record of 187G by a
new adventure under different circum
stances. A wise man, in his situation
would prefer te nurse his health, and in
dulge his tastes, amid his books, pictures
and gardens, te the turmoil of a second
campaign, in which he has nothing te gain
and the almost inevitable physical collapse
under the burdens of the office should he
again be elected. Unlike Gen. Grant, Mr.
Tilden is philosopher enough te conserve
his own fame by retiring at the right mo
ment. That Mr. Tilden is net himself desirous
of the nomination is shown conclusively te
my mind by the number of candidates who
have sprung up under his coat-tail, and are
claiming his support. Most of these men
are in such relations te him that they could
net and would net take this position with
out his consent and encouragement in some
form. I have personally se much respect
for Mr. Tilden that I sincerely wish he
would de one thing or the ether stand
boldly himself or name his man. He
sufferes grievously by all this mys
tery and intrigue. It is no light thig te
say that a statesman of his rank is making
a sham canvass for this great office, and is
being consciously used as a stalking horse
by half a dozen smaller men, all but one of
whom arc bound te be cheated in the end.
Besides, I. for one, desire his influence te
be felt at Cincinnati, because I believe it
will be exerted for the safety of the party
and the welfare of the country. But if he
waits much longer he will net be able te
transfer his strength. Meu are forming
preferences which no wish of his will dis
turb, after they are assembled. He might
de much te guide opinions during the
forming process, but he will be powerless
te alter them when settled and fixed.
I de net believe that Mr. Tilden's barrel
has been en tap in the Seuth. The Tilden
sentiment in that section is of natural
growth. But te say truth, there is net
much of it although we are, as hereto
fore, inclined te fellow the lead of the
North, and accept the nomination that
premises the most votes above the line.
Mr. Tilden, however, is net supposed te
be much stronger in your country than in
Randall has friends in the Seuth and
for awhile he was looked upon as the preb
able nominee, because he was regarded
as Mr. Tilden's heir. But since Mr. Til
den seems te be considering Mr. Payne
and several ethers, with about equal and
perhaps greater favor, the speaker is fall
ing out of sight. We remember, however,
Mr. Randall's record in years when
there were few like him in Congress, and
until the page which bears the account of
his successful fight against the force bill
shall be tern from our books, he will never
turn his face Southward for sympathy and
support without a response. Mr. Tilden
might have made him the candidate. But
he has lest the opportunity. He has
" taken time." as he did en the electoral
bill, until it is tee late.
Judge Field is strong with us. The re
markable success of the Field movement
in Virginia, Alabama and Georgia, has
given a new set te the tide. The reasons
are obvious. We are determined te win.
Judge Field is net a worn-out and battered
candidate. He has no political record that
admits of criticism or assault, while his
services te the party and the country in his
exalted place, have been of transcendent
impentance. Fer about twenty years he
has fought the battle for state rights, and,
indeed, ter individual rights, almost alone
in the supreme court. His recent dissent
ing opinions in the election cases and in
the Virginia juror cases have been gener
ally read, and falling out at a time when
men's minds were deeply concerned about
the great constitutional principles involved
they have made a profound impression.
And when we go back and turn ever the
books for nearly a quarter of a century we
find en every page this one great judge
resisting just as he does te-day the revolu revelu revolu
tierary and centralizing tendencies of
Congress, executive and judiciary ; here
extending the shield of the constitution
ever a threatened commonwealth, and
there interposing the same defense between
the citizen and the unlawful blows aimed
at his rights or his liberties by the federal
government overstepping the bounds as
signed te its power. We all knew that he
is above reproach, and, what is even mere
te the purpose in our circumstances, he is
understood te be above fear; he is no
timid trimmer ; he would net be afraid te
defend the sacred rights of a majority
wnese ballets naa oeen tnrewn
the boxes for him; he would
his office, if elected. His biography has
been extensively disseminatecLand, read in
the light of his supreme boldness en the
bench, leaves a decided impression that
there would be no unsteadiness of purpose
and no lack of nerve were he called upon
te meet a conspiracy like that which re
versed the verdict of the people in
Mr. Tilden's case. It seem, tee,
the proper antithesis the upright
judge against the wiry politician,
the unswerving defender of the truth
against the advocate of the fraud the
manly leader of the Seven against the per
sonal representative of Hayes who trained
at the tail of the Eight !
Judge Field's nomination ought te be
especially acceptable te Mr. Tilden and his
friends. He had no let or part in the sac
rifice of 1870-7. As one of the four jus
tices named in the electoral bill he fought
the fraud at every tnrn and in
all its fermr. True te Mr. Tilddn and te
the country when se many were false,
fearless when se many were timid, vigi
lant when se many slept, it would be mar mar
veleous indeed if Mr. Tilden should net
prefer him te any man who voted for the

Tableaux at St. Mary's Last Evening Te
Last evening the strawberry and floral
festival at St. Mary's church was the
centre of animated interest, the announce
ment that a number of tableaux would be
exhibited having the effect of attracting a
large audience. Acress the elevated plat
form in the eastern end of the building
was drawn a large American flag which
served as a curtain, and en first be
ing drawn last evening a beautiful
tableau was revealed, representing the
"Reck of Ages," and consisting
of a cress te which a female figure (Miss
Stella Wcntz) was seen clinging. The
effect was admirable, and had it net been
for the red light which was inopportunely
thrown upon the bcatiful spectacle, the
beholder could almost have imagined that
it was a piece of statuary. Red light en
imaginary marble is hardly the refinement
of the beautiful in art. Barring this latter
defect the tableau was almost an exact
aud enlarged copy of the favorite engrav
ing after which it was modeled.
The second tableau was " Faith, Hepe
and Charity," represented respectively by
Misses Lillic Altick, Kate Ceyle and Mag
gie Wade, who were seen standing one en
either side and one at the feet of the cress.
It was a geed picture, though the red light
again detracted from the artistic effect.

number of young ladies and 'children ar
tistically arrauged and forming a very

Kate Kelly a toilet set ; B. J. McGrann a
traveling satchel ; Mrs. J. Deaneranair

This evening the festival will close and
Clemmens's band will be present te enliven
the occasion with their splendid music.
There yet remain a large number of
handsome and useful articles, which will
be disposed of by chance or auction. On
this last evening of a festival in a cause se
wprthy as the establishment of an orphans'
home, the ladies deserve a reusing audience
and a liberal patronage.
At the Baptist Church.
At the festival in progress at the First
Baptist church, en East Chestnut street,
the attendance was large and the patron
age liberal. The Citizen's band was pres
ent discoursing sweet music, and the
spacious grounds in rear of the church
were handsomely illuminated with Chi
nese lanters constituting it a cool and in
viting retreat. The Baptist ladies are
indefatigable in their efforts te provide for
the pleasure and comfort of their visitors,
and as the festival closes this evening
there will doubtless be, as there should
be, a large attendance.
This evening the very attractive festival
in the Union Bethel, at the corner of
Prince and Orange streets, will terminate
after a wholly successful season. Last
evening the friends were out in force, and
us usual everybody enjoyed a pleasant time.
The festival is well worth visiting, and
these who would spend an enjoyable
evening should take advantage of this
last opportunity te attend. The picture
te be given te the person who sells the
most tickets, the caster te the next
highest, and the beautiful rocking chair
te be voted for, will probably be announced
at the close.
Festival at the M. E. Mission.
Last night a strawberry and ice-cream
festival opened in the mission of the M. E.
church, en Charlette street. The attend-
ance was geed and the display of nice I
things was large. It closes te-night.

Meeting of the Investigating Committee.
In response te the call of J. C. Swope, a
member of the committee, the committee
of investigation of the late beard of return
judge of the Republican primary election
met at thejerpbans' court room te hear
evidence of the alleged frauds at said elec
tion. When the committee assembled in the
corridor of the court house they ascertained
that no provisieu had been made for secur
ing the use of the orphans' court room and
that it could net ba had. The committee
thcu adjourned te Grant hall. All the
members were present except Mr. Smith
of Ceney. This was a surprise te A. J.
Eberly, the centestcut for the nomination
for district attorney as well as te his coun
sel J. W. Jehnsen esq., who evidently ex
pected te meet only the minority of the
committee, and te have everything their
Thes. J. Davis, the nominee for district
attorney, demanded a written statement of
flic evidence en which the contestants
rely te prove frauds.
Mr. Jehnsen was net prepared te give a
Mr. Davis said an oral statement would
de, but Mr. Jehnsen was net prepared te
Mr. Davis then demanded the affidavit
of twenty-five Republicans, as required by
the rules of the party, that frauds of suf
ficient magnitude had been committed te
change the result of the election.
Mr. Jehnsen said he had net the affida
vit with him, but could get it, as it had
been prepared and sworn te.
A recess of fifteen minutes was taken te
enable Mr. Jehnsen te get the affidavit.
Ou're-assembling the affidavit was pro
duced. Mr. Jehnsen then offered the re
turn paper and poll book of the Third
ward, Columbia, and would then offer tes
timony te prove that it was a fraudulent
return ; that votes had been cast for Mr.
Eberly for district attorney that were net
recorded en the return : that the return
was fraudulent, had been signed in blank
by the election officers and forwarded te
Lancaster te be filled up.
Mr. Davis was perfectly willing te have
the return put in evidence, or the votes in
the ballet box counted, aud if airy fraud
was discovered te have it corrected, but he
was utterly opposed te going behind the
returns and taking the testimony of wit
nesses as te hew they voted. Such a con
test would be interminable, and neither
he nor the committee could afford te spend
their time and money in going into such
an investigation, though Mr. Eberly, who
had inherited $40,000, might be able te de
se. He insisted that the contestant should
state the nature of the testimony he pro pre pro
peses.to offer, and that he be confined te
pointing out errors iu the return.
T. B. Cochran, esq., appeared as coun
sel for A. W. Snader, and incidentally for
Milten Mishler, judge of election of the
Third ward, Columbia. He insisted that
under the circumstances the committee
of investigation had no authority te go
into an investigation of this case. Pierson
M. Eberly has brought a criminal suit
against Milten Mishler for falsifying the
returns, and the case will seen come up
before the criminal court. The evidence
before that tribunal will establish the
truth or falsity of the complaint made
here; and if this committee is te take any
action in the matter they would be acting
extra-judicially and their decision might
prejudice the case pending in court.
Jehnsen replied at some length.
committee became impatient and Chair
man Hoever told him they did net want
te hear a speech but wanted him te pro
duce evidence of fraud if he had any, se
that the ether jtide could have au oppor
tunity of defending and presenting their
side of the case.
Jehnsen then presented the tally paper
and poll book of the Third ward, Colum
bia, aud called Jehn H. Fry, president of
the late beard of return judges, as his
Mr. Fry came forward te be sworn by
Notary Public Ditlenderffer, who' was
present, but Davis objected te his adminis
tering the oath unless the testimony be
duly written down and sealed with his
seal. As the notary did net have his seal
with him he sent for it, and before his re
turn the committee adjourned te re-assemble
at 2 p. in.

Struck by a Piece of Steel.
This afternoon a bricklayer employed ; t

went te take out. He placed a small ham

man te hit it with a large hammer. The
man struck, and as he did se a piece of
steel broke off the small hammer striking
the man in the arm. The wound bled
freely and Dr. Stehman dressed it. -
