The celebration of the founding of the
Old Log College, near Hartsville, Pa., yes
terday was an immense affair. The college
was the cradle of Princeton College, and
was also the first school of Presbyterianism in
the "United States. There were present over
20,000 people, and among them were some
of the most prominent men in the land.
President Harrison was there, and made
one of the best short speeches he ever deliv

Philadelphia, September 5. Over
20,000 people took part to-day in the ex
ercises commemorating the beginning of
Presbyterian theological education in the
United States. The celebration was in a
great open field, in tents, on the site of
the old log college, the first Presbyterian
theological school in the country, near
Hartsville, Bucks county, about 25 miles
from this city. The celebration was dis
tinguished by the presence of the President
of the United States, the Postmaster Gen
eral, the Governor of Pennsylvania and a
great array of notables, including the
most prominent Presbyterian divines in the
and the Governor are all Presbyterian
elders. They spent last night at Mr. Wan
amaker's country seat, Lindenhurst, near
Jenkintown. This morning, before break
fast, the President went out for a walk. At
abont 9 o'clock, the carriages being all in
readiness, they formed a line on the Telford
" "drive to the granite portico'chere. The first,
which the President and Postmaster Gen
eral were to occupy, was a high landeau
end was the only one hich had a coach
man and footman on the box. Then fol
lowed several low victorias, and then a
couple of covered station wagonettes, each
with & coachman in dark livery.
A. DISTINGUISHED CAVALCADE.
As they filed out of the handsome grounds
into the old York pike they made a distin
guished-looking cavalcade, the presence of
ladies adding much to the attractive sight.
The President was dressed in black. He
has the same palor that was noticed in Pres
ident Cleveland, which some attribute to
the cares of office, though people who know
him well think he is looking better than he
did several years ago. The Postmaster Gen
eral was also in black, with black" glpves
and a light, high hat 'Mrs. Harrison
rode in the second carriage with Governor
Beaver. She was in black, with a chip
straw bonnet, and took great interest in
everything along the way, and had a smile
and a bow foi the many who recognized her.
lira. John Wanamaker, who rode in the
third carriage with the reverend looking
Dr. Scott, was in a dark-striped, gray dress,
ond looking unusually well. Eev. Dr.
Lowrie and Sirs. Lowrie were in the next
carriage and Mrs. G. Dawson Coleman and
Private Secretary Halford in the one fol
lowing. A bright spot in the cavalcade was the
station wagon, containing Miss Minnie
"Wanamaker, the Postmaster General's
daughter, in pink, and Mrs. Thomas B.
"Wanamaker, who, as the beauty of the day,
attracted no little admiration. Mrs. "Wana
maker, Jr., who is a granddaughter of John
"Welsh, the late Minister to the Court or St
James, is noted for her cleverness, and dur
ing the past winter presided over the Post
master General's house in "Washington. She
compromised with the uncertain sunshine
and possible rain by wearing a gray ging
ham gown and loose coat of light cloth, and
carried a bouquet of orchids presented to
her along the wav.
NO rOEMALITT DISPLAYED.
Just as the cavalcade was turning into
the York road, Mr. "Wanamaker's two
younger daughters, in a village cart, joined
the line. There was no formality at the
start It was simply a family party with
its guests gding to a church celebration,
thongh later on along the route the proces
sion assumed a more imposing and formal
From the beginning of the drive at
Jenkintown to the site of the cradle of Pres
byterianism in America at "Warminster, the
route was a continuous ovation. House
holders stood on their pognhes or lawns
overlooking the road, surrounded by all the
members of their families, and occasionally
by neighbors whose places were farther
back, and as the President passed the men
raised their hats and the women waved their
handkerchiefs. Ellison Newport, in front
of his residence at "Willow Grove, ran out
and at the risk of being trampled by the
prancing horses, managed to get a basket of
delicious fruit into the President's hands.
Mr. Harrison showed his appreciation by
Btartine to enjoy it at once.
Atone place a magnificent bull, a Go
liah of his kind, was tethered to a high
stump decorated with flags, and around his
neck was a broad collar of red, white and
blue. He had flags on his horns. A mile
or two beyond, a place close to the roadside
had been arranged, with even an iron fence
built, and in it were a score of slick Jersey
cows and with them a banner inscribed,
"Some of the beauties of Abington." The
decorations along the nine miles were al
most continuons. There were hundreds of
flags on 'a single place.
THOUSANDS OP VEHICLES.
The array of carriages and vehicles of
every description, from fashionable victorias
and dog carts to country wagons and gayly
decorated coaches, that accompanied the
Presidental party to the scene of the $ele
bration, swelling as it proceeded, was a re
markable sight "When they hsd all arrived
and were strung on the outskirts of where
the celebration was held they numbered
thousands. There were at least 2,000
vehicles, all as full of people as they could
hold, on the road at the same time that tne
Presidental party was moving.
At the old Tennent farm the bustle of
preparation commenced with the day, and
by 8 o'clock the grounds were ready for
the crowds that began to gather as early
as 830. The exercises were announced to
commence at 10:30, but those in charge were
loth to begin before the arrival of the more
distinguished guests, and it was not until
1135, when the closely crowded people in
the tents began to show symptoms of im
patience, that Bev. Dr. Thomas Murphy,
Chairman of the occasion, annonnced that
the ceremonies would be opened. A chorus
of about 100 then sung a hymn, and Kev.
Joseph Beggs read a chapter of Deuteron
omy, trom a Bible which he said was one of
the first English editions printed in Amer
ica, and which was owned by Mrs. Brad
bury, a granddaughter of the publisher.
HONOBING THE rKESIDENT.
It was by this time known that the Presi
dental party was at hand, and during prayer
by Bev. L. "W. Eckard, of Abington, and
the subsequent singing of a hymn there was
a general craning of necks and a nervous
turning ot heads, which detracted naturally
from the solemnity of the situation. At
last the smiling face of Postmaster General
"Wanamaker appeared at the head of the
center isle, and the great audience rose to
its feet as the. procession filed down the
The speech of President Harrison was the
great feature of the forenoon proceedings.
At 130 o'clock the President and party
were escorted to a special tent prepared for
them, where a bountiful lunch was spread.
The tent was beautifully decorated with
flowers, and in addition to the Presidental
party all the prominent members of the
Presbytery were there.
About three-quarters of an hour were con
sumed at the table. The lunch was entirely
informal, and at its conclusion tbe Presi
dent, Mrs. Harrison and Bev. Mr. Scott
entered their carriage and started back to
Mr. "Wanamaker's at Jenkintown at 2:20
o'clock. The vast assemblage gathered
around the carriage and cheered the Presi
dent as he drove of
The departure of the President did not
seem to lessen the size of the crowd. In
fact, the attendance at the afternoon session
was, if anything, larger than in the morning.
This evening a brilliant reception was
given to the President at Mr. Wanamaker's
country seat at Jenkintown. Among those
present were "William "Walter Phelps, Geo.
"W. Childs, Colonel Elliot P. Shepard,
Governor Beaver, Thomas Dolan and sev
The President will remain over night
there, and will leave Philadelphia at 11:15

by Bev. D. K. Turner, of Hartsville, Pa.,
descriptive of the founding of the Log Col

He was followed by the Bev. B. M. Patter
son, D. D., LL.D, of Philadelphia, editor
of the Presbyterian, who delivered an ad

Bev. Francis T. Patton, President of

death of his son was unable- to be present,
but Bev. Dr. Murray, dean of Princeton

At the conclusion of this address Presi
dent Harrison was introduced. The assem
blage at this time numbered 25,000 or more,
and this vast and ience arose en masse and
repeatedly cheered the President as he came
to the front of the platform. Mr. Harrison,
when the applause ceased so he could be
heard, spoke as follows:
THE PBESIDENT'S SPEECH.
Mr Fbiends I have bad illustrated here
to-day one ot the conspicuous traits of the
Presbyterian Chnrch. Nothing, I assure yon,
short of a robust embodiment of the doctrine
of the perseverance of the saints in the person
of your distinguished brother who presides
over these exercises could have overcome the
difficulties which seemed to be in the way of my
meeting with you to-day. I have had also Il
lustrated, I regret to say, another
trait which I bare observed in the now
ecclesiastical world more than once, and very
mnch to my discomfort, and which I tnonght
would be absent here. And I must trace it, I
suppose, to tbe same responsible source. I
never, at any time, promised to make an ad
dress here to-day. (Laughter. I have author
ized no one to siy so. Laughter. Indeed,
among those direful consequences which come
to tbe President of tbe United States and
which have been so graphically and forcibly
alluded to by Dr. Murphy, there is none more
embarrassing than the constant habit of being
associated upon the platform or at the banquet
table with gentlemen who have manuscripts in
their pockets. Laughter.
A. SORT OF COLD DEAL.
It is altogether unfair, and I expected here
in this great meeting of my Presbyterian
brethren more respectable treatment (ap
plause), and yet I have pleasure in being here,
for every impulse of honorable pride which
stirs your heart mores mine. lam glad to
stand hero at the source of a great movement,
I had seen tbe Mississippi river ponringojt its
great torrent into the gulf and opening a way
Inlrnd for the enormous commerce, and I was
Slad to stand a few years ago where Gallatin,
efferson and Madison started tbe Missouri on
its creat course to tbe sea. And so I realize
that here, on this spot, abont which in this im
mediate neighborhood there are gathered so
many historical incidents, we celebrate, not a
victory In ar, but one of those great impnlses
born of God, and that will do His wofk until
tbe world shall cease to move. (Applause.)
I stand dumb before the thought of what the
creat dav will reveal as the fruit of this modest
but pious and courageous effort .here in the in
stitution of the Log College the wholesome
front of faith. Only the eye of God can follow
those tender and imperceptible filaments of
mental influence that touch onr lives. If it
could be revealed to ns to-day, how many in
this great audience, gathered from remote sec
tions or our country, would be able to trace the
silver thread by which they had been drawn
into the church of God, and continuing the
oririual and multiplying influences of the ef
forts that were begun here?
1HKETE OF FAITH.
It Is pleasant to believe that that which is
bidden to our eyes will some day be known,
and that we will be able better to realize that
those men wrought for God and for mankind.
I do nrt want unduly to exalt the Presbyterian
Church, and yet I think the historians who
have been untouched by the partiality ot mem
bership, and who have been writing its story,
will say that It has been, as a body, magnifi
cently characterized by faithfulness to God and
If some have supposed that it was not si pro

A BROADER UNION".
The great period of polemical and acrimo
nious ecclesiastical discussion had its day and
its uses. If we aro now come into a day when
essentials have been magnified and non-essentials
have been set to their proper subordinate
place, let ns rejoice for an occasion of
reunited effort of those who would lift np
mankind, and, while still loving the chnrch,

which we belong, let us rejoice for tbe light
that has been shed.

cordial and brotherly greeting. Let me wish
that this day may close under auspices as
pleasant as it has opened. Let all carry away
from this occasion instructive lessons, which

At the close of the President's address
there was a scene of wild excitement for five
minutes, men and women cheering and wav
ing handkerchiefs and in other ways demon
strating their approval of the Chief Execu
Bev. Ebenezer Erskine, D. D., of New
ville, Pa., delivered an address on "Presby
terians of the Cumberland Valley."
HE "WAS A GKANDSOIT
Governor Beaver was next introduced and
when he advanced to the front he was
greeted with prolonged cheers. The Gover
nor began by saying that if he was not a
son of the Old Log College, he could at
least claim to be a grandson, for he was a
son of that Log College on the western slope
of the Allegheny Mountains, now known as
"Washington and Jefferson "University,
which sprang from tbe original log college.
"I think this assemblage," said the Gov
ernor, "has reason to feel pleased when I
announce that I have joined the manuscript
crowd, for you all saw an hour or so ago
what a man without manuscript could do."
This pleasant allusion of Governor Bea
ver to President Harrison's remark about
the men who go to public meetings with
manuscript speeches concealed about them
caused general laughter, during which the
Governor produced from his pocket a type
written "manuscript from which he proceeded
to read au address eulogisticof the Log Col
lege and its founders. At the conclusion
the Secretary announced that Bev. Dr.
Samuel Alexander, of New York, who was
invited here to-day but could not come, had
sent instead a letter moth-eaten and yellow
with age, written by Gilbert Tennent, a son
of the founder of the Log College, in 1757,
and whicli has been in the possession of Dr.
Alexander's family for over a century.
When this relict was exhibited by the
Chairman it provoked loud applause,
STUCK TO HIS BUSINESS.
Next Postmaster General John "Wana
maker was introduced, and he too came in
for an outburst of applause. In presenting
Mr. "Wanamaker, the chairman explained
that to him was due the presence of Presi
dent Harrison here to-day.
"I amsure dear friends." said Mr. Wana
maker, "tbatl am given a place on your pro
gramme simply as a neighbor. I do not deserve
the honor conferred on me by your chairman.
My business at present is to carry letters, and
that is all 1 have done in this instance. Tho
credit for the presence of our president here
to-day is duo entirely to your committee. I
merely carried the letters between them." Ap
plause and laughter. I
After some reference to the historic asso
ciations of the locality in which the cele
bration waa held, Mr. "Wanamaker closed by
suggesting the rebuilding of 'the Old Log
College in a form as nearly resembling the
original as possible as a memorial ot Ten

Bev. Dr. McCosh, ex-President of Prince
ton College, was expected to be present, but
was unable to come on account of sickness.
He sent a letter instead. Governor Green,
of New Jersey, had also promised to attend,
but he was kept away by press of official
business and sent a letter of regret.
President Knox, of Lafayette College,
next delivrred an address, and after several
other short addresses the celebration ended
at C o'clock by the pronouncement of the
benediction by Bev. J. "W. Scott, the vener
able father of Mrs. Harrison.
Many Memories Connected With tho Scene
of (be Celebration,
Loo College Geounds, September 5.
The exercises of the day were really com
memorative of the founding of the Presby
terian Church in the United States. The
Log College was established in 1726 by
William Tennent, and flonrisheduntil 1742,
when Princeton College was founded, and
it may be said that the Princeton institu
tion of learning sprang up from the primi
tive college established br Tennent.
The road traversed by President Harrison
to-day is full of historic interest It is
crossed a few miles above Abington by the
road down which Lord Howe retreated after
his vain assault upon the intrenchments of
General "Washington at White Marsh. The
road itself was laid out by William Penn in
1G95, a few years after he had landed on the
banks ot the Delaware. Just alter leaving
the village of Hatboro thePresident passed
the monument erected on the roadside to
commemorate the Crooked Billet battle of
1778, in which General John Laccy achieved
distinction. About a mile northward of the
scene of to-day's celebration is the Nesham
iny Presbyterian Church, of which
William Tennent was the pastor
during the time he was conducting the Log
College. Tbe grave of Tennent is in the
graveyard attached to this church, and here
also is buried the remains of John Scott, an
ancestor of Mrs. President Harrison, and
once tbe owner of much land in the neigh
borhood, including, it is said, the land on
which the Log College stood. These graves
were decorated with flowers to-day, as was
also the old church.
It was at Neshaminy also that Lafayette
reported for duty to Washington. Valley
Forge is. near by, and. in fact, the whole
country hereabouts is dotted with places
mentioned in the revolutionary history.

Washington, September 5. The Post
office Department to-day received a tele
gram from the postmaster at Spokane Falls,
Wash., saying that the office force threat
ened to strike to-morrow on account of the
small allowance for the office for salaries of
the men. The department has telegraphed
to the Chief Clerk of the Bailway Mail
Service at Portland, Ore., to go at once to
Spokane Falls, and "be prepared to make up
a dispatch of mail should it be found neces

to Spokane Falls and take charge of the
office if the threatened strike takes place.

Difficalt, Howerer, to Ptotb There Was Conspiracy
Joshua- Mann and Mrs. Swinton will not
be arraigned to-day on a charge of conspir
acy to murder Bobert Bay Hamilton. The
New York police officials are satisfied that
such a conspiracy existed, but there is a
mis sing link. Hamilton has taken all his
goods from the Noircottage.
f sniCUti TSLEOEAil TO TBS DISPATCH.
New" Yobe, September 6. "Conspiracy
to murder" would bo the charge upon which
Joshua J. Mann and his mother, Mrs.
Swinton would be arraigned at the Tombs
Police Court to-morrow afternoon if In
spector Byrnes and his men could obtain
some wanting links in the chain of
evidence which they have been completing
for the past six days. If those links are not
ob tained, the charge will be one of conspir
acy to defraud, by means of a pretended heir.
That Bobert Bay Hamilton's fortune, un
encumbered by himself, was the ultimate
object of tho conspiracy headed by his'wife,
there is no longer any doubt, bnt as
the conspiracy was thwarted before it had
fully developed, it will be very difficult to
prove to the satisfaction of a Criminal Court
the full intent of the conspirators. This
difficulty may saVe the members of the
gang from having to answer for the
more serious charge. And then
again' it may not, for to
day's developments in the case brought the
history of the conspiracy down to a point
nearer a murderous conclusion than it had
been supposed to have attained,
VEET NEAB FBTJITION.
The marriage was accomplished, the false
heir had been produced and accepted in the
fullest manner. The will had been made,
which, according to one of the conspirators,
upon the removal of Bobert Bay Hamilton
would have placed in the hands of the
woman who had forced him to give her his
name the whole, or, at any rate, the balk ot
of his estate in trust for the child, and in
case of the removal of the child for herself
alone. It would take no insurance actuary
to figure out the presumption of life in the
case of a sickly infant in the hands of such
a gang under such circumstances.
"When Bay is dead I'll, marry yon," is
what Mrs. Bobert Bay Hamilton said to her
lover, Josh Mann, after she had finished
reading over to him this will. At least
Josh says so, and Josh was satisfied with
that promise, although under natnral con
ditions Hamilton's chance of life was worth
five of his.
When Mrs. Hamilton was arrested for
slashing nurse Donnellv, in Atlantic City,
there was a certain satchel about the safety
of which she was very solicitous, and which
she insisted upon carrying with her to prison.
It was said that it contained Hamil
ton's will, and. the -pipers in an agreement
for separation, over which was said to have
begun the quarrel between Hamilton and
his wife, which ended in the stabbing of the
AN IMPORTANT CODICIL.
Afterward it was learned that it was not
Hamilton's will, but a codicil, orsomething
of that sort which insured her support if he
should die. In the interest in other
branches ot the matter this will, or what
ever it was, rather dropped out of sight, but
the latest developments make it a
most important feature. Inspector
Byrnes solemnly and officially informed
the reporters to-day thqt there was not tho.
slightest evidence to prove that the gang in
tended to murder Hamilton. Then he sent
for Mann to be brought into his private
room, where so many criminals of all aces
have been induced to make a more or less
clean breast of it.
"What do jrou know about a will made
by Mrs. Hamilton?" was the question that
the Inspector put to him. The sub
stance of the reply was that, soon
after her marriage to Hamilton, Mrs.
Hamilton showed him a paper which she
said was "Bay's will." Of course Mann
could not remember all its details, but the
substance of it was that all of Ham
ilton's property was left to his
daughter, Beatrice, and Mrs. Hamilton was
made sole executrix and guardian of the
child. If Beatrice died before coming of
age the mother was to receive the whole es
tate. Mann says that Mrs. Hamilton read
the will over to him carefully, and that he
can't be mistaken as to its terms.
NO QUALIFYING CLAUSES.
If there were any clauses in it qualifying
the bequests in any way, or that would have
kept Mrs. Hamilton from getting hold
or Hamilton s jewels, family plate
and other estate, as soon as he was
dead, they were so covered up that
Mann didn't recognize them; neither did
Mrs. Hamilton, for she was very jubilant
over the possession of the will, and told Josh
that she would marry him as soon as Bay
Josh, of course, denies that there was any
conspiracy to put Hamilton out of the way
involved in this. He says that Mrs. Ham
ilton told him that Bay .was reckless in
riding horseback, and might get killed
any time. This, he says, is what
he supposed she meant in referring
to the possibility of Hamilton's dying in
time for Josh to enjoy his wife and his
property. Josh repeated his state
ments that he had lived with Mrs.
Hamilton as her husband almost
constantly for several years past, and that
he knew she had not borne a child in that
time. He said that there had never been
any marriage ceremony between them.
Mr. Hamilton himself refused to see any
callers to-day except those friends who are
assisting him in prosecuting this case. His
counsel, Mr. Clarke, when asked if he
knew whether the murder of Mr. Hamilton
was a part of the plot, thought a little
while and then asked to be excused from
saying anything abont that part of the case.
Inspector Byrnes will not give the name
of the mother of the bogus Hamilton
baby. He says she is, and was
when the child was .born, a mar
ried woman moving in good society.
HAMILTON GETS BEAD! TO GO.
Another Act In the Drama Is Enacted at tho
ISrECIAL TELEQKAM TO TDB DISrATCH.1
Atlantic Cut, Septembers. The Noll
cottage to-day furnished another important
link in the new phase of the strange and
and sensational Hamilton case. A young
New Yorker visited it shortly after 11
o'clock and handed Mrs. Eupp, the pro
prietress, a note of authority to receive Mr.
Judge Irving-said that this latest move
on Hamilton's part means that he will prob
ably never set his foot in this county again.
"We can do without him at the trial,'.- he
said, "and would rather have his $600 bail
than himself." '
It was learned to-day thatduring Mrs.
Bupp's visit to May's Landing on Monday,
Mrs. Hamilton entreated her to send over
six morphine pills for the purpose,
as she stated, of allaying her nervousness.
The guileless Mrs. Bupp' promised to grat

HAMILTON GET8 HIS GOODS.
He Gives Conclusive Evidence That Ho Has
Abandoned His Wife.
Atlantic City, N. J., September 5.
Conclusive evidence that Bobert Bay Ham
ilton has deserted Mrs. Hamilton developed
to-day. This morning a man of deter
mined mien presented himself at the
door of the Noll Cottage, and asked to see
Mrs. Bupp. An andience was denied him
by Special Officer Chew, who is on guard at
the house. After a few words Officer Chew
walked around to Justice irving's office
and the two returned to the cottage. The
stranger then produced the proper creden
tials, also a letter addressed to Mrs. Bupp.

Two of the men, K. T. Moore, aged 32, a

Moore was blackened by the explosion and

thought it had a great catch on the Corporal,

Assistant Secretary of the Interior Bussy is
anxious to be Pension Commissioner. He
has granted 80 special cards, involving
thousands of dollars.
(SPECIAL TELXGBAU TO THE DISPATCH.1
Wa SHINGTON, September 6. Tanner
stock rose a little to-day. The. Commis
sioner of Pensions has a good one on Gen
eral Jos. B. Hawley, friend of the soldier,
editor of the Hartford Courant, United
States Senator from Connecticut and per
petual nutmeg candidate for President On
September 1 the Courant published the fol
lowing item: "To-night's Washington dis
patch announced that an original pension
had been granted to Timothy Sheehan, of
Connecticut The record of Connecticut
men in the War of the Bebellion, just
issued from the office of the Adjutant Gen
eral of this State, contains the record of but
one-soldier bearing this name. This record
is as follows:
Twenty-sixth Regiment, Timothy Sheehan,
Company K, of Croton, enlisted SeptemDer
9, 1862, mustered in November 10, 1862; deserted
May 20, 1863."
The item upon which this dispatch is
based was found in an Associated Press dis
patch from Washington announcing the
pensions granted to Connecticut soldiers,
and is the regular dispatch sent out by the
Associated Press every day upon the infor
mation furnished by the Pension Office. It
is a statement that an original pension had
been granted to Timothy Sheehan among
the others from Connecticut
THE FACTS MADE KNO,(VN.
The facts of the case are that a pension
was granted to Timothy Sheehan, as stated
in the Associated Press dispatch. Timothy
Sheehan, who received the pension, was a
private of second class in Company C, Bat
talion "United States Engineers of the regu
lar army. He states in his declaration that
he is 24years old, 5 feet 9 inches in height,
fair complexion, light brown hair, grey
eyes, and that he resides in the town of
New Haven, Conn. He' further states that
he Incurred synovitis at Willitt's Point,
New York Harbor, on the 8th day of Jan
uary, 1889, and in consequence of said disa
bility he was honorably discharged from the
regular army upon a regular surgeon's cer
tificate. The records of the War Department, on
file in the claim, show the above facts to be
true, and that he.was honorably discharged
by reason! of syno'vitis of the right knee
point, contracted in the service and in the
line of dnty. It therefore appears that
Timothy Sheehan, of New Haven, Conn.,
who resides at 20 Silver street, was properly
pensioned for disability incurred in the ser
vice and in the line of duty; that he was a
regular army soldier, having enlisted in
1876 and being discharged in 1889, and that
he was about 10 years of age at the time of
the close of the war.
BUS3Y WANTS THE PLACE.
Tanner stock appreciated a little further
on account of the fact, which is now no
longer concealed, that General Cyrus Bussy,
Assistant Secretary of the Interior, is him
self a candidate for Commissioner of Pen
sions, as soon as the legless corporal is
bounced. Bussy is an Iowa man who lob
bied the State convention, lately held in
DesMoines, against a resolution indorsing
Tanner, and who went to the grand encamp
ment at Milwaukee for a similar purpose,
only to fail in the same way. Beport has
it that Hiram Smith, the! Deputy Commis
sioner of Pensions, who was Secretary Noble's
candidate for Commissioner would aid Bussy
in every way. During the absence of
Corporal Tanner in Milwaukee, Smith sent
word to Mrs. Tanner that he wquld like to
have the Commissioner's carriage to use,
being in effect the real Commissioner. Bat
the best opinion at the Pension Office is that
Smith is an honorable man, and loyal to his
chief. i ,
Bussy is handicapped in another direc
tion. The Dr. McMillan, the medical
referee who has furnished the Assistant
Secretary of the Interior with most of the
material upon which the investigation of
Tanner has been based, has fallen .sick.
Bussy is very religious, but here are two 6f
his principal props ruthlessly pulled from
THOUSANDS AHE INVOLVED.
A Democratic official at the pension office,
moreover, has lately discovered that the
Assistant Secretary ot the Interior had
made some 80 decisions in appealed pension
cases, all of which together involve the pay
ment of as many thousands of dollars m
arrearages, to say nothing of the future pay
ments 'which must be made under the new
ratings. The publication of this fact of
course makes Bussy out to be a worse sur
plus dissipater than even Tanner himself.
The case of the Corporal appears to stand
about as it did. There is a rather mythical
report that some important person went to
Deer Park two or three days ago and made
charges against the Commissioner of Pen
sions, which the President admitted to be
sufficient to necessitate Tanner's removal if
they could be proved to be true. But the
name ot the messenger cannot be learned.
It is thought not to be Congressman Flood,
of Elmira because his complaint which he
has made some noise about is known to be
discounted in advance.
The Corporal hasn't been interviewed
since he returned from the Grand Encamp
ment, and his friends breathe new hope
from that interesting circumstance.
A CAPITOL CONTEST.
Quite a Number of Month Dakota Critics In

had decided in favor of Pierre, as announced
in these dispatches, the other aspirants for
the big prize tried to combine against what
they denonnced as a real estate speculation,
and held a meeting for that purpose at
Aberdeen yesterday and to-day.
However, while they were united in de
nunciation none of them would do aught
which might injure their own chances tor
the victory, and the attempt to combine
against Pierre was a failure- At the pres
ent time that town seems in the lead, but
Sioux Falls, Huron and half a dozen others
claim for themselves the final victory.

Netv Yoek, September 5. The big five

street, was closed all day to-day, and Mr.
Cohen could not be seen by the many credi
tors who called there to find out what
was the matter. The 100 girls employed by
him went to the factory as usual this morn

congregated about the place for several
hours. Creditors soon heard about Hand
called to see what was the matter, but had
to go awlty unsatisfied. It was reported
that Cohen suspended payment on account
of the pressure of old creditors of the late
firm of Carl L. Bose & Cohen, who are
suing him, and inability to get goods on ac
count of injurious reports circulated about
him. It was also reported that he had se
cured several creditors by transferring to
them stocks and acconnts.
Carl L. Bose and Cohen quarreled and
dissolved on May 21 last Mr. Cohen was
to pay Mr. Bose "825,000 for his interest in
the concern and to assume the debts of the
firm. It is said he had to deposit $50,000
worth of goods in a warehouse to seenre the
firm's debts. After the time of the dissolu
tion Mr. Cohen claimed assets of 225,000.
against liabilities of $107,000. It is said
that he bought heavily last spring, sales
were light and he was left with a big stock
on hand, and endeavored to tide over by
borrowing largely from two banks. His
credit became affected, and Bradstreet's
withdrew his rating two months ago. His
liabilities are said to be about $60,000.
Mr. A'rthur B. Dyett, attorney for Mr.
Cohen, said this evening that Mr. Cohen
had failed. Mr. Cohen had not disappeared.
He would not make an assignment, bnt
wonld let the creditors take what they could
get. His liabilities are about $60,000. Mr.

one of his best clerks to the spot without
delay. Both of these men are at Portland,
some 225 miles from Spokane, and will
easily reach tbe strikers to-morrow.

plains of is, in the judgment of the depart

two years ago, and succeeded fairly. The
growth of the office has been great, from a
total receipt of $6,000 in 1886. to a total of
$22,000 this year, but the allowance for clerk
litre has grown in proportion. It was $3,500
on May 1, Peel applied for an allowance of
$5,400. He expected to add two to his num

BT CABLE TO TOT DISPATCH.
London, September 5. Honover Square
was to-day the scene of an interesting event,
one of the parties to which is well-known on
the American side of the water. The occa
sion was the marriage of Captain Naylor
Leyland to Miss Jennie S. Chamberlain, of
Cleveland, O. The bride wore white satin
with silver and pearl ornaments. Her sis
ter Josephine was bridemaid. The presents
were numerous, and included a brooch in
the shape of a horseshoe studded with dia
monds and pearls to the bride, and a dia
mond ruby pin to the groom from the Prince
Mrs. Leyland was born in Cleveland, and
is 24 years of age. Her father is of English
descent, bnt Mr. Leyland's father and
grandfather were born in Brattleboro, Vt.
Mr. Leyland is the nephew of Selah Cham
berlain, the grand uncle of tbe bride, and
the founder of the family fortune. Mrs.
Chamberlain, the bride's mother, was the
only child of the Hon. Hiram V. Willson,
who was a native of Madison county, N. Y.,
a graduate from Hamilton College, the
friend from boyhood, and in manhood the
law partner of Senator Henry B. Payne, of
A FA3IILT "WITH A HISTOBV.
The Chamberlains and the Willsons have
always been Democrats, and the bride is of
that staunch stock. Selah Chamberlain
was the Democratic candidate for Congress
in the Cleveland district in 1872. President
Pierce appointed Hiram Willson in 1855
the firs Judge of the United States Court
for the Northern district of Ohio.
The bride is described as marvellously
handsome and it has been frequently as
serted that her pictures do not give an
adequate idea of her beauty, much of which
consists in her splendid complexion and
wonderfnl eyes. Her complexion has been
ecstatically described to be a translucent
blending of pink and white. Her eyes are
liqnid blue,. shaded by dark lashes, dreamy
in repose, sparkling in conversation. Her
hair is lighter than brown, with a decided
suggestion of gold in the wealth of tresses,
which forms a contrast with the eyes and
delicately marked eyebrows. ,
Her features are of classic Grecian cast.
In stature she is above the medinm height,
and connoisseurs have said that her figure
is faultless", neither spare nor stout, but
The bride inherits her good looks and
gentle manners from a father who is a .
man of culture and a mother of handsome
countenance, which is stamped with tokens
of an amiable disposition and intellectual
THE AaiEBICAN BEAUTT.
The Chamberlains have resided off and on
in England for nearly a dozen years. The
"American beauty," "as Miss Chamberlain
was well-known, and her people, have been
ireqnent nuest3 at Sandringham, the home
of the fat heir to the English throne. Her
portrait has been hung in tbe Grosvenor
gallery, and an exquisite bust in marble by
the sculptor p'Epigny has been exhibited
in Borne as a companion piece to the bust
of the Empress of Bussia.
The bride's position os.an heiress is due
to her connection with SelahChamberlain,
and an interesting story is toiilof how he
got bis wealth, a or many years ire field la
Lis possession Minnesota State bonds ta a
large amount on whose interest the State
had defaulted. One day, a little over a
dozen years ago, the Minnesota Legisla
ture resolved to pay this interest to a
certain amount. This was telegraphed
to Mr. Chamberlain by one of
the legislators, and Mr. Chamberlain im
mediately chartered a special locomotive,
and went like mad for St. Paul, arriving
there before any other bondholders, and re- ,
ceiving the full amount due him. He re
turned to Cleveland", current report has it,
with $1,000,000 in cash.
The bride's mother came in for her share
of this, $250,000, bnt the fortunes of the
present Chamberlains have been vastly in
creased in later years by the advance in
Cleveland real estate. The bride has been
at all tbe American watering places, but
most of her time has been spent abroad.
