Sunset Cox Returns to Washington Filled
With Enthusiasm.
A Kimesite ct the President's Grandfather Fails to
Oct an Office.
"Sunset" Cox is back from the new
States, enthusiastic over his reception there
and over the people who tendered him an
ovation for his services in getting the States
admitted. A namesake of the President's
grandfather tails to get a Consular appoint
ment. The new National Zoological Gar
den promises to be an object of national
Washington, August 10. S. S. Cox
was in the city to-day, fresh from the great
Northwest. He is enthusiastic over his re
ception in the Territories, whose admission
into the Union his action accomplished last
winter. He is enthusiastic over the beau
ties of Yellowstone Park, for the reserva
tion of which he fought so hard in the
House. He is enthusiastic over the people,
especially those of Washington Territory.
"They are," he said, "as if you had taken
the cream of New York, of Washington, of
Buffalo, of all the cities of the Eist, the
brightest boys of the family, and sent them
out with plenty of wit, plenty of enterprise,
and pocketsful of money. They are the
brightest people in the world. They have
got the grit and the money. They have the
monev right in their hands, and know how
to use" it They have $10,000,000 to rebuild
Seattle, and it is at work. There is. the
sound of the hammer and the ring of the
cnisel on the stone. They are alive. Fire
can't burn those people out. I saw Spokane
Falls in its beauty, Saturday evening. They
wanted me to stay over until Monday to
speak in the Opera House, and I couldnot
and we regretted it. Sunday the terrible
fire broke out there. But they'll build
it up."
He said he did not talk politics out there.
He was not on that mission. He was out
there to see the people of both parties. "But
I saw and thought, and took account of
things. Nothing can prevent Washington
from going Democratic I did not go to
Montana, so I know nothing about that."
Turning from his very interesting talk of
the West, he referred to the world's fair.
"The people in New York are at work on
the world's fair. This is a great thing. I
telegraphed Mayor Grant to stir up some
thing for Seattle and Spokane Falls, but I
suppose all his attention is taken up by the
"Will it be in New York?" was asked.
'They hive got the money and can have
the lair if they want it. If they see their
money coming back they have plenty of it
and will spend it They can have the fair
if they are ready to spend the money for it.
No other city but Washington lias any
show to net it. It lies between Washington
nnrt Xi-tt Ynrfc. Tf New York doesn't cet
it, Washington will."
Next Summer to See n Model Animal Gar
den in Wnshincton.
Washington, August 10. Although
the site for tl National Zoological Pnrk
was laid 6ff six weeks ago, Mr. Hornaday,
the curator, says that it is not possible
to remove the little zoo at the
Smithsonian building into the new quart
ers until next spring or summer. Sur
veyors arc busy now in running the lines on
the twelve different pieces of property em
braced in the park. Until this work is
completed and the computations made of
the area in each piece, the land will not
pass into possession of the Zoo Commission,
nor will any part of the purchase money be
paid out.
The average cost per acre of this park of
ICO acres is $1,200, six acres of it having
been acquired as a gift from the owners ot
Woodley Park, a picturesaue suburb of the
fashionable northwest. This six acres lies
along Rock creek, in a long strip 135 feet
wide, and affords a fine boulevard for an ap
proach to the Zoo Park. Curiously enough,
Bock creek describes, in passing through
the park, a large italic Z, which may very
fitlv be said to stand for zoo.
The severe floods this summer have
served an excellent warning upon the Park
Commission. At the time of the heavy
rainfall, when Johnstown was swept away,
Bock creek rose 21 feet in its passage
through the park. Had the various
buildings, pens and yards of the
Zoo been placed on the level meadow
land, not an animal would have been left
alive. Three times the creek has risen high
enough to submerge what might be very
naturally taken for an ideal site for cages
and yards. The line of the highest water
has been carefully staked out, and the Zoo
buildings will be put on the highest ground
to be had.
The upland meadow and grove will be
laid off into a deer and buffalo park. To
day, by the way, Mr. Hornaday was notified
of a gift to the Zoo of four more buffalos, to
come from the herd at Pembina, North
Dakota. Efforts will be made next winter to
secure a herd of elks from Northern
Minnesota. The ponds for the otter and
beaver and other aqdatic animals will need
to be protected from possible floods in tne
stream by a high dike.
The result os the flood was to change the
course of Bock creek at two points in the
park, by a distance of several rods. A large
poplar tree coming down stream lodged and
formed a gorge that turned" the stream into
a new channel and left the old one as drv as
a bone. Workmen are now damming" the
new channel and restoring the stream to its
old course.
A Kninesnke oi the President' Grandfather
Falls to Get an Office.
Washington, August 10. While Vice
President Morton got another relative in
office in the appointment sent by the Presi
dent from Bar Harbor to-day, Mr. Harrison
went back on a namesake, possibly because
he was not a relative. William Henry
Harrison Webster, of Buffalo, has for some
time been the most prominent candidate for
Consul at Toronto, Canada. He was backed
by Representative Farquhar, the New York
Senator and politician generally, and
Chauncey Depew made a special fight for
him. Everybody supposed he would get
the place, but to-day Charles G. Pope, of
St. Louis, got the place without much of a
struggle. .
"Who's Pope?" is on the lips of every
body to-night, and every correspondent who
was at the Chicago convention could answer
at once. It was the evening of the famous
Ingertoll episode. Colonel Bob had been
invited to address the vast assembly.
He had spoken for a few minutes, when
he launched forth into an eloquent eulogy
for Gresham. He was hissed nd howled
down and almost mobbed. Fred Douglas
attempted to make peace, but no more
speeenmaking would be allowed. Then
some one yelled "Pope, Pope," and a hun
dred throats took up the word, without
knowing,who Pope was, but merely to howl.
A tall, fine-looking man was seen mak
ing his way to the rostrum. The audience
was silent, merely out of curiosity to know
what kind of a bull this unknown Pope
was going to get off. The young
man threw back his bead, expanded his
lungs, and astounded the thousands assem
bled by beginning a recitation of "Sheri
dan's Bide." It was a new thing in con
vention, absurd and grotesque, but it made
Pope. That episode possibly beat Gresham,
and while Ingersoll wanted nothing, and
got it, Pope is rewarded for his part by the
consulship atToronts,
Colonel Bichard Loy, who is named Con
sul General at Ottawa, is & brother-in-law
ofVice President Morton. Another brother-in-law
has a fat consulship in England.
Mr. .Morton knows how to treat his wife's
relations, and there is harmony in the Vice
Presidental household.
A Number of Physicians Are Trying the
Browu-Seqnnrd Discovery Conflict
Ins Results In Seme Cases
No Injurious Effects
At Least.
Chicago, August lO.-rHealth Commis
sioner DeWolf was asked to-day what suc
cess he had met with in the administration
of Dr. Brown-Sequard's Elixir of Life.
"I have administered this solution," the
doctor said, "once a day to ten people, every
day since last Tuesday. They have been,
for the most part, cripples and other sick
people whom I have called into my office
from all the streets. I have, however, ad
ministered it to a physician of LaGrange, a
physician of Joliet and a physician of Chi
cago. The Chicago physician is Dr. C. P.
Hathaway, who is a great sufferer from
disease of the heart and dropsy. I have
also administered it three times to a lady
who has been confined to her bed for three
or four weeks with nervous prostration with
out any organic disease."
"What has been the effect ol the treat
ment?" "I can say that in no case has it been fol
lowed by unpleasant or injurious effects. I
can say", further, that someof'the.patients
claim to have been much benefited. The
effects on the condition of the lady referred
to have been very marked and very bene
ficial. Dr. Hathaway, on the other hand,
has undergone little or no change."
"What opinion have you formed of this
"Ot" course, I have no settled opinion yet
But I believe that in organic diseases it acts
as a stimulant without any subsequent de
pression. The people who are benefited be
gin in a few minutes to feel well, as if fhey
had taken a little champagne, and they
keep on feeling so. The good done seems to
be permanent."
A dispatch from Cincinnati says: Dr.
Harper, of the City Infirmary, has tried the
Brown-Sequard elixir on five inmates of the
infirmary, injecting the fluid in 40 minutes
after the death of the animal from which
the material was taken. He gave no in
timation to his patients of the natnre of the
experiment They were all infirm men over
70 years of age, except one, who was about
40, but was a rheumatia cripple. The doctor
reports that only one observed any result
wnatever, and he said he felt Kke he had
taken an alcoholic stimulant. The doctor
concludes that results found elsewhere are
the result of mental excitement.
Some of the Evidence Being- Collected by
Her American Lawyers.
New Yoke, August 10. Mr. Alfred
Boe. of the firm of Boe & Macklin, who
will represent in this country the interests
of Mrs. Maybrick recently condemned in
England for the murder of her husband,
said this evening that the most important
American affidavit to be forwarded in Mrs.
Maybrick's behalf will be that of Dr.
Griggs, of Brooklyn, who stands read to
swear that he once gave to the
Dresent Mrs. Maybrick a nrescriotion
for a wash for the complexion which.
contained arsenic xnis exactly corrob
orates Mrs. Maybrick's testimony before
the English court. Dr. Griggs is now
spending his vacation at Sunapee, N. H.,
and Mr. Macklin will endeavor to meet
him in Boston at an early date, and have
his affidavit sworn to before the British
Consul in order that it may be valid
Other affidavits will be obtained from per
sons who knew Mrs. Maybrick when she
lived in this country, and who will testify
as to her good character and social standing
here. This, in the opinion of
Lawyer Boe, is of muoh less
importance than Dr. Griggs' testimony.
Mrs. Maybrick's American attorneys are
anxiously awaiting the arrival ot Mr.
Joseph Potter, United States Consul at
Creteld, Germany, a friend of the condemned
woman, who will bring full information as
to the state of the case and the course to be
Jiursued. Mr. Potter sailed from Liverpool
ast Wednesday.
The Appointment of a Friend of Blaine Kept
From the Public
New Yoek, August 10. Lewis Geb
hard Beed, United States Consul at Barba
dos, W. I., who was President Cleveland's
first appointee from Brooklyn, was replaced
in office on August 3 by E. A. Dimmick.an
American dentist who has practiced his pro
fession on the island for 13 or 14 years.
Dimmick came originally from Newbury
port, Mass. His appointment was made on
the June 25, but has yet to be announced
in the Consular list sent out from
Washington. An explanation for this ap
pears to be found in the fact that the new
Consul's wife is a niece of Miss Abigail
Dodge, better known as "Gail Hamilton"
whose relationship to the Hon. James G.
Blaine, Secretary of State, offers ample ex
planation for the silence surrounding the
Mr. Dimmick's relationship to Mr.
Blaine's family secured him the position.
During Mr. Beed's lour years at Barbados
he has made an excellent record in his re
lations with the Government and the mer
chants whose interests center at the port.
He will return to Brooklyn the latter part
ot this month.
A Ubernl Unionist lecturer Talks Rather
Emphatically Upon Home Rule.
Chautauqua, August 10. Prof. J. F.
Mabaffey, of Dublin, lectured this morning
on the "Irish Question." He said that he
was not a Tory; that he had voted with the
Liberal party until it was disturbed
by Mr. Gladstone, and was now a Liberal
Unionist The great strength of
the home rule cause in Ireland lays, he
said, in the money that country receives
from the United States. He classed the in
terference of England' in behalf of the
Southern States during our Civil War as a
grave instance ot international discourtesy,
and stated that the sympathy and money
we send to Ireland is in the same way a
breach of international courtesy.
He said the home rule movement is not
national in any real sense, but an unholy
alliance of paid agitators and Romish
priests; that it was not safe to give constitu
tional liberties while a Roman Catholic ma
jority would distort them into an oppression
of the Protestants. The information we. re
ceive in this country is poisoned and one
sided. Agitators always describe Ireland
as it existed 20 years ago. The tenantry is
better protected by law in that country than
in this.
A Brewery Wagon Upset.
One of Lull's brewery wagons was upset
in Allegheny last night Shaffer, the'
driver, was injured about the body, and one
of the horses was hurt A keg of beer
crashed through the window of Mr. Mar
tin, but no farther damage was done.
Postmaster General Wanamaker Discon
tinues the Sunday Service at
Pleasure Resorts on the Jersey
Coast Thousands ot Per
sons Indignant.
New York, August 10. No mail mailer
was taken to any of the postoffices of the
Jersey seashore last Sunday, and none is
expected tomorrow. Cessation ot the Sun
day service is by order of Postmaster Gen
eral John Wanamaker, and it came without
warning, the first intimation of it being a
telephone message from the New York of
fice, at about the time when the Sunday
morning mail bags were accustomed to ar
rive, saying that the Sunday service was
The feeling in the great hotels, where
Sunday is the chosen day of the week for
reading and writing letters, amounted to in
dignation. The anger of thoasands who get
their daily newspapers by mail was espe
cially outspoken. About the only pleased
persons were the local venders, who out
rageously charge a dime for a 5-cent jour
nal, and who were favored by the Wana
maker interference with a long-established
convenience. Sabbatarism has all along
prevailed at Ocean Grove and Asbury Park,
but the people at Long Branch have enjoyed
their Sunday mail, and those at
West End and Hollywood are in
dignant at the deprivation of a service
established when David M. Hildreth was
somewhat humorously made postmaster of
West .End. That was when President uar
.field was slowly dying at Elberon and the
amount ot mall matter was Immensely in
creased. Postmaster General Thomas L.
James visited Long Branch and saw the in
convenience to ..which the West End and
Elberon people were- subjected in getting
their letters to and from the Long Branch
postoffice. Mr. Hildreth was the proprietor
of the West End Hotel, and Mr. James
agreed to establish a postoffice there.
"I will do it if you will be the postmas
ter." he laughingly said.
"Agreed;" was Mr. Hildreth's reply, "for
it ought to be fun for a Democrat to be an
officeholder under a Republican administra
tion." So Mr. James ordered the office to be cre
ated, but not without an unexpected ado,
for there proved to be another postal West
End in New Jersey, and the residents of
that place kicked up a row over losing the
name. They were at length placated by a
substitution of the name of the
most popular and wealthy inhabitant,
and so that difficulty was over
come. Mr. Hildreth had to give bonds for
official rectitude, and the names signed to
the document were those of Bussell Sage
and C. K. Garrison, representing anywhere
from $30,000,000 to 550,000,000. Mr. Hil
dreth held the office until the end of the
Cleveland administration, hiring an assist
ant at ja loss out of pocket to take actual A
charge. This official, .air. JNunnelly, is now
the postmaster.
"What do you think of Mr.Wanamaker's
withdrawal of our Sunday mail?" was asked
of Mr. George W. Childs, who is a summer
resident at Elberon.
"Well, John shouldn't have done it," was
the reply.
Russia Ceded the Behring; Sea to the United
States, and the Title Is Good No At
tempt Has Been DIado to Dis
pute It far 140 Years.
San Feancisco, August 10. In the San
Francisco Argonaut appears an article by
Congressman Charles N. Felton, treating at
considerable length on the question of the
rights and title of the United States in
Behring Sea. Mr. Felton was a member of
of the conference committee between the.
Senate and the House in the last Con
gress, which passed the bill amenda
itory of the laws regulating fur seal
fisheries in Behring Sea. The writer first
cites the well-known facts on which Bussia's
title to the Behring Sea was based, and
gives the history of Bussia's control of
Alaska and the Behring Sea np to the date
of the cession of the same to the United
States in 1863. Bussia ceded to the United
States all that part of Behring Sea east of a
given line running nearly northeast and
southwest through this sea, and retained
the title to and control over that part of
Behring Sea lying west of the said line.
It Is a matter of history that Bussia from her
discovery of Behring Sea down to tho cession
to the United States controlled the navigation
of its waters and taking of its marine life. To
this end her navy patrolled it and in pursuance
of her laws has taken, confiscated and burned
marauding vessels. She has since pursued and
inflations and treaties there is no allusion to
Behring Sea, Aleutian Islands or to any
region of country or country, within 1,000 miles
ot its Eastern border, hence the sovereignty as
serted and maintained by Bussia over that sea
from its discovery to its partition and cession
to the United States, over 140 years, has
never been officially questioned or denied, and
again, naa it Deen unaersiooa mat tne waters
of Behring Sea and its marine life were free to
fishermen of all nations, including ours, tbere
had been no incentive on the part of our Gov
ernment for its purchase
Whatever title Bussia had at the date of
its transfer to the United 8tates must be
conceded to our Government until it is es
tablished that Bussia had no title to the
same, which the writer apprehends, cannot
be successfully accomplished.
A Joint Encampment of the Regulars and
Militia nt Sit. Gretna.
Mt. Gbetna, August 10. Late to-day
the joint encampment of the United States
regulars and six companies of the National
Guards, was opened with the booming'of
cannon. The encampment will last for a
week. On Monday Governor Beaver and
staff, and later Secretary of War Proctor
will be here. The regulars arrived here
several days ago. They came from Wash
ington, Fort Hamilton, New York, Fort
Myer, Virginia, and Fort Adams, Newport,
Bhode Island. Of theNationnl Guards, the'
Phoenixvirle Battery, Captain John Den-
nitborne arrived last nignt, followed soon
after by Hunt's Battery, of Pittsburg. The
Pittsburg boys have fine quarters, are all
well and are thoroughly enjoying them
selves. The other State militia here are the First
City troops, Philadelphia, Sheridan Troop.
Tyrone, Governor's Troop, Harrisburg, and
Battery A, Philadelphia. The regulars
were brought here at the request ot Gover
nor Beaver to give the State troops more
thorough instructions in militarv tactics. A
rifle range two and one-half miles long has
been constructed. A similar encampment
has never been held in this country and
much interest is manifested in it by regular
army officers. This year the,State camps
have been regimental and next year the en
tire division will be encamped at Mt.
Two Men Camp Out With n Keg of Beer,

turned home he found the men in hii parlor
with a keg of beer. '

Bismarck Arranging Alliances
Surround Her on Every Side.
Great Preparations Being Made for Two
More Eojal Visits.
Will Accompany Him in Bis Jonrney Through the
German Dominions. .
Greece has been very promptly snubbed
by England and the Triple Alliance, which
Bismarck is making every effort to
strengthen, in order to effectually surround
France. Emperor William expresses him
self as being greatly pleased by his visit to
Queen Victoria. Berlin is now preparing
to receive the Emperor of Austria and the
Bussian Czar. . .
Beblin, August 10. Among the first
fortunate fruits of England's attachment to
the triple alliance are the cessation of the
Servo-Bulgarian war preparations, and the
simultaneous suspension of the Cretan
rising. The swiftness of the combined
diplomatic action of England, Germany,
Austria and Italy upon the Cretan question,
as propounded by the Greek note to the
Powers, is the result of a previous under
standing of the Powers with Turkey on
united action in the East.
The Greek note, which threatened armed
intervention in Crete, inspired as it was by
Bussia, met with a decisive response from
the four powers within two days. There is
nothing in modern history like it for rapid
ity of diplomatic action, with a straight
forward assertion of a definite policy.
The Porte, in a circular note received
here to-night, issued under the concert of
the four Powers, repudiates the charge of
the Greek note that Turkish misrule is
solely responsible lor the Cretan insurrec
tion. It asserts that the reforms demanded
by the Christians have been readily granted,
and that the people would remain peaceful
if they were not incited by Greek agitators.
The Porte's response does not allude to
the leading point of the arrangement on
which the four Powers depend for the set
tlement of the Cretan troubles, namely:
Th a Christian Governor, with a mixed
Christian and Moslem Council, elected by
the people, shall constitute the Government
after the present troubles are over.
A semi-official article in the Journal Be,
St. Petersburg admits that the promptitude
of the decision of the powers has prevented
the movement from assuming proportions
which would menace the peace of Europe,
and that the Servian Government's abandon
ment of the mass of all, the reserves is as
certainly due to the influence of Prince
Bismarck's league ot peace. Only a portion
of the reserves is now ordered out for formal
These diplomatic successes inspire the
foreign office here with brighter hopes ot
drawing Spain into the league. The
Italian Government, having better relations
with the Spanish than has Germany, has
been entrusted with the carrying on of the
negotiations at 'Madrid, and sends Signor
Cialdini as special euvov.
If Signor Cialdini succeeds in perfecting
an arrangement similar to that with En
gland Prince Bismarck will have so ringed
France with a circle of powers hostile to a
war of revanche, as to guarantee perma
nent peace and a probable reduction of the
The reported intention of Emperor Will
iam and the Empress to visit Madrid,
though denied by some Spanish papers, is a
definite project associated with overtures
for an understanding. If the present plans
are carried out, Emperor William will go
in the Imperial yacht to Lisbon in Septem
ber, and thence to Madrid.
Emperor William and Prince Henry ar
rived at Wilhelmhaven this afternoon and
immediately proceeded by special train to
Berlin. Prince and Princess Bismarck
came to Willhelm's Strasse from Varzin to
The Emperor's impressions of England,
as freely made known through his mother,
the ex-Empress, are enthusiastically appre
ciative. Writing to his mother from Os
borne House, after the naval review at
Spithead, the Emperor described the mag
nificent view of the line of English war
ships ten miles long passing before him, as
a surprising proof of the tremendous
strength of Great Britain, conveying new
ideas of her preponderance of power
throughout the world.
The Emperor's sojourn at Osborn has cer
tainly tenped to renew the friendships pre
viously existing between the members ot
the two royal families. Queen Victoria
sent a telegram to the ex-Empress describ
ing the happiness she experienced from her
grandson's presence, and the warmth of
feeling he showed toward herself and her
The ex-Empress, in responding, thanked
her mother for the -good news, which she re
ceived with great joy. The visit of the
Prince of Wales to Berlin, which is arranged
for the end of September, will seal the re
newal of family cordiality. The Empress
came to-day from Potsdam, and Princess
Henry,, with her baby, from Darmstadt to
meet their husbands here.
Emperor Francis Joseph's arrival is timed
for Monday at 5 P. M. The ceremonial of
his reception will be similar to that of King
Humbert's, although he has asked, on ac
count of his recent affliction, a very quiet
welcome. Under Den Linden will be deco
rated in the style usual on the occasion of a
monarch's entry into the city.
Popular curiosity is not excited over the
viBit, public interest being centered in the
Czar's coming, which is now fixed for the
28th jnst. The Burgomaster applied to the
Foreign office for advice as to how to pre
pare for the Czar's visit. He was told that
it was donbtfnl if the Czar would enter
Berlin, although he would stay four days
at Potsdam.
His morbid dread of facing a crowd pre
vents a visit to the caDital. The programme
for the visit is subject to alterations, de
pending -upon the police reports' regarding
the safety of the various routes. Accord ing
to the present arrangements the Bussian Im
perial family will leave thePcterhof Palace
on board the Derjava on the 24th, reaching
Stettin on the following day.
The Czarina and her children will pro
ceed thence to Copenhagen, while the Czar,
accompanied by Emperor William, will
come to Potsdam, where reviews and state
banquets will be held. The Czar will after
ward go by rail to Kiel to witness a 'naval
review. From there he will go to Copen
hagen. ' .
Numbers of Bussian detectives have
already been stationed at Berlin, Stettin
and Potsdam. Officials of the Russian
embassy assert that the Czar intends to
hold a limited reception at the embassy,
tind the elaborate preparations that are br
ing made confirm the statement. Work
men are engaged day and night in deco
rating the interior of the building.
The Kruz Zeitung, referring to the state
ment of General Boulanger that he used the
secret fund to buy the right to inspect the
papers of the military attache of the German
Legation, says that Col. Villaums, while at
tache ot Paris, caught n clerk in the act of
copying documents. This is the only foun
dation for General Boulanger's story.

Delegates from 163 mines met atBorchum
to-day, and decided to send representatives
to the Sllesian mines to arrange for con
certed action. The authorities disfavor a

called a general assembly at Nuremberg to
organize for the electoral campaign.
The Charges Will be Discussed In Secret
Sessions of the Court.
Pabis, August 10. The trial ot General
Boulanger before the High Court of the
Senate was continued to-day. The Pro
cureur General, resuming his address,
charged Boulanger with trying to corrupt,
M. Goron, the Chief of the Pnblio Safety
Department, and Generals Thomasso; and
Tricoche, and with receiving aacommission
on purchases of coffee for the army.
When tbeProcureur finished his address,
M. Buffet asked leave to speak. President
Leroyer refused to give him permission and
prolonged tumult followed. When the,
President succeeded in gaining a hear
ing he explained that the Procur
eur's charges were only to be discussed in
secret committee. Tne court thereupon re
solved itself into a secret committee. M.
Kerdrel, of the Bight, moved that the
court was incompetent to try Boulanger.
The debate on the motion will take place on
He Makes a Bitter Speech Denouncing; His
Political Opponents.
Bibmingham, August .10. Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain made a speech at a garden
party here to-day. He sneered at the Par
nellites and denounced the policy of the
Liberals. He expressed bitter opposi
tion to the candidacy of Lord
Bandolph Churchill for the Parliamentary
seat of Central Birmingham andjdeclared
that if successful it would strike a blow at
the Union.
One of the Clerks of tho Sioux Commission
Is Now a Raving Maniac He Was
Badly Scared by the Actions
of Old Sitting Bull.
Chicago, August 10. The exciting
scenes and danger to the Sioux Commission,
which Sitting Bull created in his efforts to
prevent the signing of the treaty which has
Just been concluded, drove one of the Com
missioner's' clerks into violent insanity.
The young man is Everett Corbin, a brother

In a Very Shrewd Drygoods Game
He Has Recently Played.
And Secures Big Bargains From Western
Dealers Who Were
How the Eastern Wholesalers Are Stealing Chicago's
Western Customers.
A New York drummer has played a mer
cantile joke on the P. M. G. It is Md that
he has secured the bulk of business from the
merchants whom Mr. Wanamaker brought
from the West at his own expense, in the
hope that they would stock up at his Phila
delphia store.
New Yobk, August 10. Thirty dry
goods merchants from the West stopped last
night at the Hotel Albert. None of them
had his place of business nearer New York
than Chicago. .They had arrived this morn
ing from Philadelphia, where they were the
guests of John Wanamaker. It has been a
common practice by the great Chicago job
bers' to provide free tickets to and from the
Windy City for customers that were likely
to be profitable ones. But it was reserved
for the great Philadelphia clothes
seller to conceive the project of assembling
100 Western retail merchants at Chicago
and bringing them East in sumptuous pal
ace cars. Among them were such men as
O. D. Van Dusen, of the Jump Biver Lum
ber1 Company, Wisconsin, which has a
merchandise account of more than $100,000;
C. A. Goodyear, of D. A. & C. A. Good
year, big lumber merchants of Toma, Wis.
with an equally large merchandise account;
B. S. Dodge, of Sparta, Wis.; E. S. Gris
woid, of Columbus, Wis.; W. B. Shepard,
of Shepard, McFeyden & Co., Beaver Dam.
Wis.; Chas. Jackson, of Jackson & Co., De
Pere, Wis.; Ole Erriccson, of Zens &
Erriccson, Morris, 111.; H. J. TJnna, Hast
ings, Neb.; J. J. Karges, Kansas City, and
B. L. Turnbull, Nevada, Mo.
The train, freighted with grist for John's
Philadelphia mill, left Chicago last Satur
day ten minutes before the "limited." It
traveled on Sunday, and is said to have
cost the Postmaster General 1,800. With
return coupons and incidental expenses the
valiant band began to make purchases with
a debit of fully $4,000 to be recovered out of
profits of the goods sold to them by Hood,
Bonbright & Co., which is John Wana
maker's name as a wholesale merchant.
The negotiations which led to the accept
ance of these hundred invitations were kept
as secret as if they had been for Cabinet
offices. Feelers were first thrown out as to
whether such an invitation would be favor
ably received. Then the proposal was
made in plain terms. Next a free ticket to
Chicago was given to the acceptor, allowing
him to reach that city on last Saturday'
morning. At the Chicago branch oi Hood,
Bonbright & Co. he was finally told to be at
the Baltimore and Ohio station before 2:30
It speaks well for the manner in which
these instructions were carried out that only
one man able to turn his knowledge to prac
tical account appears to have known Mr.
Wanamaker's thoughtful arrangements a
fortnight before thev were carried out. He
represented a large New York house in the
West. It seemed to this gentleman, whose
name is Williams, that it would be well to
post the intending travelers on New York
rices belore tney started .East tor irnua
elphia. So he spent the entire fortnight wandering
through Uie towns and cities in which the
hundred excursionists resided. Then he
followed them by the next ordinary train to
Philadelphia, where he gave them addi
tional food for reflection. Then Mr. Will
iams got in his fine work. He did not hire
a special train, but merely showed them the
I way to the railway station. Then the West
erners witn one accord Dougnt tneir own
tickets to New York, and started for this
city in batches. When they got here they
made the Hotel Albert their headquarters,
and since then the remaining members of
the band keep dropping in off every Phila
delphia train.
Of course the excursionists were not neces
sarily expected to buy all their goods from
Hood, Bonbright & Cc. Of course, also,
they bought from Hood, Bonbright & Co.
what they thought they conld not get cheap
er elsewhere. For four days they" rambled
over Mr. Wanamaker's store. They found
what they considered bargains in hosiery,
for Mr. Wanamaker owns a hosiery factory
and so saves intermediate profits. Mr. Bice,
too, who was lately engaged at a salary of
25,000 a year to boom Wanamaker's whole
sale dress department, felt it Incumbent to
make a show for his money, and sold a fair
quantity of dress goods at reasonable prices.
But beyond these two lines the buying
seemed somewhat to hang fire. There was
evidently no advantage in baying domestics
from Hood, Bonbright & Co., for these goods
are notoriously sold on very slender margins
of profit everywhere. In other departments,
especially in all expensive fancy goods,
there was a suspicious upward twisting of
the Western nose when prices were men
tioned. Mr. Wanamaker did not relax his atten
tions when his guests arrived in Philadel
phia. His-young men drove favored cus
tomers around the city in hired carriages.
He himself in his dual capacity of states
man and drygoods man, made them a speech
in which both his qualities were equally
By Wednesday afternoon the majority of
the excursionists had made the bulk of
their purchases. An enthusiastic Phila
delphia newspaper, whose reports chroni
cled the movements of the party with grea
minuteness, estimates the amount of their
purchases at $500,000. Mr. Bice personally
claims to have .sold $100,000 to his own
hand. Allowing for leeway and
other things, perhaps $200,000 would be
the outside limit. On Thursday the
exodus began. Tbat night half the party
slept in New York. The remainder are
daily arriving in detachments. Hardly one
of the entire party will go home without
visiting this city and purchasing goods in
it. By the time tho trip is over it is calcu
lated that Philadelphia will have subscribed
$4,000 to bring 100 merchants East, in order
to get a third of their orders, while New
York, which pays nothing, gets the remain-,
ing two-thirds.
Naturally the Chicago jobbers feel sore
about the new method of drawing business
to the East. In the face of Pullman special
trains, the proud boast of Marshal Field
that Chicago held the Western trade in the
hollow of her hand,-must evidently come to
naught. However, as Chicago began the
free ticket racket she cannot justly com
plain. ( In Search of Her Husband.

Of Horse stealers Whose Operations Cover
nn Immense Amount of Territory
The Animals Taken Hundreds
of Bllles to be Disposed of.
La Motjee, N. D., August 10. A gi
gantic horse stealing industry is thought to-
have been established in, the Coteans, along
the Missouri river. A great many horses
stray away and are never heard from; oth
ers are taken from the stable's nd no trace
is ever found of them, and their complete
disappearance and the utter impossibility of
ever-finding them after they have strayed
away, or been 'stolen, has been a mystery
that has caused considerable comment; but
facts have lately come to light which may
explain some of the looseness of equine
Different parties take a number of old,
decrepit horses out among the hills, which
are totally uninhabited, and any strays that
may be around will come to these herds
when they will be caught and sent out to
other parties connected with the gang, and
in a few days they will have the horse hun
dreds of miles from where it was piczed np,
and then offer it for sale with safety. Facts
lead to the belief that this organization
leads from near Pierre. Dak., to Great
Falls, Mont, and possibly to the British
Horses that are stolen near Pierre are rnn
north through the Coteans, traveling long
distances by night and are sold in the north
ern field, while horses that are stolen in the
north are sent south and sold or traded be
tween here and Pierre. A vigilante commit
tee of large dimensions should go north and
clear out these organized bands of thieves.
Horrible Compounds That Were Given for
Medicine In This Century.
For whimsicality says a London paper,
commend us to the "sympathetic liniment,"
suppposed to cure wounds by being merely
applied to the weapon which had caused
them, and consisting, with the addition of
fine bole, and the simple oils of linseed and
roses, of human fat, powder of mummymafi's'
blood, and mos3 from the sknll of one killed
by violence. What more horrible compound
could be imagined? There is a scent of
witchcraft about it worthy of Hecate and
the three weird sisters, whose "charmed
pot" contained items scarcely more hideous;
yet, such was the faith or infatuation of the
period, that both Sir Kenelm Dishy and
the Irish empiric Greatrakesaresaidto have
effected cures withiLLetnotmodern'wisdom,
however, laugh at the folly of its forefathers,
when we find in a newspaper of 1847, an
account of a woman swallowing a human
skull, powdered and mixed in treacle, in
occasional doses, as an antidote for epi
lepsy. Even this.disgusting as it seems,dwindles
into the comparative indifference of a dose
of ordinary bone-dust, besides the brutal
expedient of tearing the heart from a black
hen while living, to roast and powder it for
a similar purpose; or dividiifg,alive, a snow
white pigeon to bind the separated halves
to the feet of a patient suffering from the
same formidable disease. Both these atro
cious experiments were, however, perpe
trated within the last 30 years, the one at a
little village in Essex, not 20 mile's from
London, the other in a remote hamlet of
Kent. ,

The Harrison and Blaine party enjoyed a
short trip on the ocean yesterday.. Tha
President was somewhat disturbed by the
motion, and others of the passengers were
decidedly under the weather. A pleasant
reception ended the day.
Bab Hakbob, August 10. President
Harrison went for a sail to-day, the guest
of Mr. and Mrs. Blaine. The passenger
boat Sap pho, which usually plies between
Mount Desert ferry and Bar Harbor, had
been selected, and it carried nearly 100
ladies and gentlemen, who went partly
round the island and into Somes Sound
with the President, by invitation of tha
Secretary of State.
Before the steamer had been away from
the wharf ten minutes some of those on board
began to feel uncomfortable. The afternoon
was foggy and the sea choppy, and the
steamer pitched and rolled as if she were
several days ont of port. The President
stood in the pithouse, now with one compan
ion and then with another, while most of
the other Governmental people occupied
chairs or settees on the deck, or lounged in
the saloon. .
President Harrison kept his place in the
pit house, and while he was not actually
sick, the change in his face showed that he
felt the motion of the boat and did notquite
like it. Meanwhile the Turkish Minister
took a lounge in the saloon, evidentlv feel
ing pretty badly, and when Walker Blaine
asked if the internal relations of Turkey
were entirely peaceful, he rolled over and
with a groan said tbat he hoped so.
Many others aboard the boat showed
symptoms of seasickness.but the sail through
the rough water lasted less than an hour,
and the effects were not severe. The steamer
ran up Somes Sound, stopping to enable
Mr. Blaine to invite Bishop Doane on
board. The invitation was declined, as the
Bishop was awaiting the arrival of friends.
Then the steamer drew up alongside the
Clytie, a three-masted schooner, which waa
anchored in the channel, and asked for &
The two boats were made fast, and, while
the boats were lying together, a Innch was
served in the main saloon in true demo

witn a
and a plate in his hand. The steamer went
a little further up the sound, but before re
turning,' when near Somesville, a boat was
lowered and the President, Mrs. Blaine,
Mr. and Mrs. Lodge, Mrs. Patterson and
others took seats in it. They were rowed to
the shore, whence they started in a buck
board for Bar Harbor.
After dinner to-night the President and
the Blaines went to a reception which the
Kebo Valley Club gave in its club house ia
the President's honor, followed by a recep
tion and dancing. Seven hundred and fifty
people were 'present, among them being.
