A Singular Catte.
In March, 1879, a Major John J.
Harrold was injured in an accident on
the New York Elevated Railway, and
he sued the company for fifty thousand
dollars damages, claiming that his
spine was so injured as to make him
totally helpless, and bis system so
wrecked that he could not live long.
There was great dramatic skill dis
played in presenting himself and bis
case in court, and though an eminent
surgeon testified that he was not seri
ously injured, tie iury awarded him
thirty thousand dollars damages This
judgment was affirmed bv the General
Term of the Supreme Court and the
Court of Appeals. But one day last
week the counsel for the Elevated
Railroad Company made a motion fur
a new trial, supported by a number of
affidavits-, all tending to establish the j
fact that the plaintiff bad been "sham
ming" for three years; that his health
was as good as before the accident, and
that although he hurried into bed and
tied up bis head whenever visitors
came, he was able to sew and lay car
pets, put up window shades, kalsomine
rooms, saw wood, lift a heavy wash
boiler from the range and empty it in
the sink, etc.; in short, to do the work
of an able-bodied man. The court made
an order upon Harrold to show cause,
on the 17th inst., why a new trial i
should not be granted, and gave the
railroad company leave to file addition
al affidavits in the meantime.
This remarkable case attracts great
attention in New York and Brooklyn.
It is rightly held that if the plaintiff
and his witnesses have been guilty of
preconcerted deception, the railway
company should prosecute him and
them for an attempt to obtain money
by false pretenses. Such operations
as are alleged against him tend tc
prejudice the cases and make jurors
suspicious of others who have good
grounds for asking for damages suffered
through the negligence of common

J MESSRS EDITORS .-—Will you allow
j me space in your columns to reply to
j "Amicus" in the Eagle of June 28th.
He appears to be very indignant be
! cause I charged him with falsehood.
This I would not have done had he
not asserted things that were not facts,
and he knew they were not facts,
which I think justifies me in charging
him with falsehood. Yet he continues
i to do so in his second attack; for when
he says the chasm he speaks of is open,
and he knew it, and every one knew it
! was only bridged for a day, and that
i for a purpose, and it had been bridged
I last fall and that F. M. Shira had to be
thrown over-board and a whiskey man
elected, he is not correct as far as I
am concerned, for if F. M. Sbira had
any friends he had one in me ; and
more, I never have made any com
promise with whiskey men, but have
always voted as I think proper, not
asking any advise of "Amicus" in this
matter, which I suppose is what
troubles him, for he thinks what he
don't know is not worth knowing.
I attended the primaries of the Re
publican party, helped to nominate a
ticket aud tried to help to elect it. I
suppose "Amicus" is' trying to class
me with the Prohibitionists, but I had
| been asking favors of the Republicans
and stayed with them and worked
with them and voted with them.
Now for "Amicus" to stigmatise the
temperance people with Mr.Shira'sdHeat
is not correct, for if their vote defeated
him wby did it not defeat the balance
of the ticket ? No, Mr. Amicus, you
are off the belt; the whiskey faction of
the Republican party done it for a pur
pose, and that purpose was to brine:
the temperance cause into disrepute,
and we doubt not "Amicus" lent a
helping hand, but would like to throw
mud at somebody else, which he ap
pears very ready to do.
Mr. Amicus complains about being
called Satan, and says I claim a rela
tionship when I call him brother. I
may have made a mistake, as he calls
it, when I called him brother, but I
did not call him Satan, I only said his
criticisms looked like Satan reproving
Now for the beer be charges me
with paying for, and the stabbing of
some other man in the back, and the
shoe pinching the reason I sqneal, and
that 1 don't like to have my political
course criticised, this is all foul slang.
I will stand on my record.
"Amicus" in his lirst article predict
ed a man in our township would die
in a few days, and in his second article
be predicts this chasm he speaks of
will be bridged again Who inspired
bim ? I thought that the last of the
inspired ones bad died when Guiteau

EDITORS CITIZEN :—I &pent a week
in Butler during Court, and heard a
grout many strangers who were there
attending Court, complaining of drink
ing water being so warm and muddy.
It was just aiter the big flood and
during the hot weather in June.
In the evening there was a great
throDg on the streets moving up to
wards the Court House. I fell in with
ibe train and'on the way to the Court
House I saw the throng going into a
drinking saloon, like "Sheep to the
Slaughter." StraDgers in town who
did not know where to go to get a cool,
refreshing drink of water, resorted to
the bar-room for a drink of beer, or
something stronger. Passing the
Court House, a few doors below the
corner, I saw the Ladies' Temperance
Hall, and a few doors further on,
another saloon. I turned and retracing
my steps came back to the Temperance
rooms. No one seemed to be patroniz
ing it. In fact, there were no gentle
men there, and three or four ladies sit
ting in, or near the door, gave it the
appearance of a private parlor, and I
saw that it would take more fortitude
for a stranger to go in, than most men
possess. But not being easily frighten
ed by ladies as good looking as they,
and being very thirsty, I ventured up
to the steps and said, "Have you any
thing to drink here, ladies ?" No sir,
was the reply. I then said, "Have you
no water or buttermilk?" The ladies
seemed very much surprised that a
man should want water to drink in
Butler and one of them, jumping up,
said, "Oh yes sir, come in." I did so,
and found their room a very attractive
one and a very comfortable place to
spend part of the evening, much more
so than in a beer saloon. I told the
ladies I had called, partly to get a
drink and partly to learn the object of
their hall, or room. I was informed
that they had raised funds for a library,
by a festival held a week previous, and
the object was to offer to strangers aud
to young men a place to spend their
leisure evenings where the influences
would be less demoralizing than the
bar-room or billiard hall. This is cer
tainly very commendable and praise
worthy in the temperance ladies of
Butler, but I felt that something was
lacking. That something ought to be
done, and some effort made to divert,
at least a part of the mighty throng—
that was patronizing the saloons, on
either side of the Temperance rooms,
from these uram shops, to their pleas
ant well furnished room, where a more
healthy and moral atmosphere prevail
Ladies, it is not for me to say what
you ought to do, but only to say, I felt
the need of something to bring those
who need salvation from the poisonous
cup within your influence, and induce
them to patronize your very pleasant
reading room.
During Court week, or at times
when there are a great many strangers
in your iown, you might do a great
deal in this direction by leaving cards
at the hotels and boarding houses, and
advertising in different ways, making
known the object of your room and in
viting the young and the. transient to
spend their evenings there rather than
in the billiard and beer saloons, and by
keeping good cool water for drinking
on your tables. I hope, ladies you
will not think me dictatlug, for it is
from the appreciation of the good work
you are engaged in, and the sense I
have of the necessity of such a work in
your town that 1 write.
I say the necessity of such a work
in Butler for I am sorry to say that
there seems to be more drinking there
than in most places of its size. 1 might
add, that the patrons of the bar seem
to be of a very different class from those
who patronized bars a few years ago.
They are of a less respectable class.
This speaks well for your work. It
say* ii| terujs, stronger than words,
that you are making drinking at the
bar—and elsewhere too—disreputable.
Go on and you will conquer. You are
the proper ones f><r this reform for,
when women, young and old refrain
from wine and discard all who do not,
a reform must follow.
Though the patrons of the bar are
'of a less respectable class than former
j Jy. yet they are as precious in the tight
iof God and the Savior, and your work
| is none the less important, and Chii»-
| tianlike. May God bless your labors.

Report* of If orrible Massaeres
by the Arabs—Cairo Aban
doned by Eiiropeaiis--
I'anic at Port Said.
ALEXANDRIA, July 22, 9:30 A. M.--
Major General Alison is just moving
out with two regiments of infantry and
a mounted squadron in the direction of
Arabi Pasha's entrenchments. This
movement will probably lead to au en
gagement. Two hundred and fifty
rifles, under an aide de camp, pushed
beyond Milaha six miles hence to blow
up the railway. They mpt some of
Arabi Pasha's cavalry and several
shots were exchanged. The Esyptians
fled after losing two dead and several
wounded. The rifles, having finished
their work, withdrew. The British
troops now occupy Aboukir and will
occupy Ramleh to-morrow.
Arabi Pasha has levied a war tax
upon the land xo the nominal amount
of 500,000 pounds. The Khedive has
received advices that Arabi Pasta is
well supplied with provisions and am
munition, but his forces are not increas
ing. Some correspondents having re
ported that they were fired upon yes
terday at a village a few miles out
from Alexandria, a party of military
proceeded thither last evening. They
found the houses filled with pluuder
and brought forty prisoners here for
The report of the number of persons
massacred at the time of the bombard
ment was grossly exaggerated.
The British have appointed Achmet
Rifaat governor of Alexandria. His
duties will be mainly nominal, but his
use as a figure-head will enable author
ity to be exercised without wounding
native susceptibilities.
Arabi Pasha has no intention of ad
vancing on Alexandria. The natives
are leaving the city in great numbers
in obedience to his summons.
A Port Said dispatch says: At a
meeting of foreign consuls yesterday
it was agreed to call on the admirals
and captains of the men-of-war in the
harbor to ask what steps were to be
taken for the security ol Europeans on
shore in the event of an outbreak.
Fresh earthworks have been thrown
up by the Egyptians at Fort Guemiel,
six miles from here. The Arabs at
Ism&ilia are murdering the Copts.
Every European has left Cairo.
ALEXANDRIA, July 23.—The Khe
dive has signed a decree dismissing
Arabi Pasha and declaring him a rebel.
He will also issue a general order for
bidding the Egyptian army obeying
orders from Arabi Pasha and forbidding
the people to pay him taxes.
The country is drifting into fearful
anarchy. Atrocities equal to any per
petrated in Bulgaria are committed
with impunity. Two Germans at
Tulkh, sheltered by the station-master
until the train was ready to start, were
caught entering the train. Their
heads were held over the carriage door
and their throats cut.
Another Christian was placed on
the rails and an engine run to and fro
over his body.
Arabi is flooding the country in front
of his entrenchments. To provide for
the civil population the chief engineer
of the Bittera has been placed in charge
of the steam cotton works where, with
fiye boilers and two tanks, he will be
able to condense one hundred tons of
water daily from the wells of brackish
The following is the text of the
Khedive's dismissal of Arabi:
Arabi Pasha: In consequence of
your departure to Kafr-el-I)war, accom
panied by the army, thus abandoning
Alexandria without orders, stopping
railway traffic, preventing us from re
ceiving telegrams and communications
throughout the post and impending
the return of the refugees to their
homes in Alexandria, and your persis
tance in war preparations, and your
refusal to come to us after receiving
orders, I dismiss you from the office of
Minister of War.
The Khedive a'so issued the follow
ing circular to the army: "On perusing
the order for the dismissal of Arabi
Pacha from the office of Minister of
War, you will know the great motives
which necessitated his dismissal,
henceforward be will have no authori
ty over you. Whosoever agrees with
his designs and movements will have
participated in his crimes. Whosoever
shows obedience and conforms to our
rule will deserve honor, courtesy and
good remuneration. You must be
aware that the country is surrounded
with dangers and perils, for the l'owers
have agreed on Turkish intervention
for the reform of the country, without
damaging the privileges of the firmans
granted to Egypt. I am convinced
you will conform yourselves to my
orders, which cannot have any object
other than the welfare of the country.
He who obeys my orders will be re
warded. He who does not will have
| to blame himself on being punished.
After the bombardment of Alexan
dria a council of war \ .a held under
our presidency. Dervich Pasha as
sisted and Arabi Pasha was present.
It was decided not to surrender the
forts until ordered by the Sultan.
A telegram was sent to Constantino
ple to this effect. Arabi Pasha then
returned to A lexandria, and I ordered
him to reinforce the forts. He re
plied he would never do so and then
started for Katir-el-I)war. Unless I
was certain the object of France and
[ was uot to take pousessiou of
i Egypt, but merely to restore order, 1
should have been the first to give my
life in defense of the country.
At the Palace.
There is reason to believe that
Arabi Pasha sent a species of ultima
tum to the Sultau, declaring that he is
cctiiig to .-aw Islem from the infidels,
and giving the Sultan notice that
i the Porte t-e troops to co-operate
with the unbelievers he will fight
them and proclaim the Sheeref of Mec
ca Caliph It is believed that Arabi
has threatened to depose the house
• o! Ofniuii and proclaim Jet-ad ruler in
I its place.
It is considered certain that Arabi
will destroy Cairo unless defeated and
; captured. In reply to the proelama
j tion of the Khedive Arabi appointed
a ministery of his own at Cairo.
LONDON, July 22.—1n the Common?,
Childers, Secretary of State for War,
stated the amount of the proposed vote
of credit for the Egyptian expedition
would be i.'2,300,000. He said he
would also ask a supplementary vote
of ten thousand men for the army.
Childers also stated that £900,000 of
the vote of credit would be for the
army and the rest for the navy. Dilke,
Under Foreign Secretary, denies that
a convention had been concluded with
France relative to the Suez canal.
Burke, Conservative, stated he proba
bly would ask Gladstone on Monday,
when the demand of the vote of credit
for troops in Egypt came up, if he
would consent to report progress im
mediately after his statement, so as to
obtain further information as to the
policy of the Government, particularly
in regard to the Suez canal.
At a meeting of Conservative peers
at Lord Salisbury's residence yesterday
to consider the course to be adopted
on the arrears of rent bill, Salisbury
stated that in consequence of the grav
ity of foreign affairs he could not rec
ommend the peers to bring about a
crisis on a domestic question by re
jecting the bill.
The Times says the force for Egypt
will be ten thousand, and with the
troops already sent make fourteen
thousand men. The Duke of Con
naught, General Alison and General
Wood will command the brigades.
Gen. Wood is ordered to be ready to
embark in a few days. The govern
ment has engaged ten vessels for the
transport of troops. The transport
Nyanza has beeu fitted as condenser
for Alexandria She can condense 32,-
000 gallons of water daily. The em
barkation of the whole forces will be
completed within a fortnight. Cyprus
will be the rendezvous of the force.
The troop ship Euph-ates left Ports
mouth to-day. She took 1,700 men.
The captain received sealed orders. It
is presumed the destination is Alexan
dria, not Malta.
A dispatch from Toulon says the
advance guard of the French expedi
tion, consisting of 5,000 marines, is
preparing to embark. It is stated the
credit for the Egyptian expedition will
amouut to 40,000,000 francs.
LONDON, July 23 —The Observer
says: "We understand that on Wed
nesday last an ultimatum was seut to
the Sultan askiug him to state, within
twelve hours, wl.ether he was willing
to send troops to Egypt, and that it
was upon the receipt of an evasive
reply to the ultimatum that the Gov
ernment decided the time for further
delay had passed."
Measures for the protection of the
Suez canal were discussed in the
French Cabinet council to-day, and the
necessary credit will probabv be moved
in the Chamber of Deputies to-morrow.
De Freycinet, President of the Coun

WASHINGTON, July 22. —The State
Department is advised by the acting
Consul General of the United States
in Egypt that he has moved from
Cairo to Alexandria. It is understood
that whatever Americans remain in
the interior of Egypt are at some dis
tance in the rear of Arabi's army and it
is believed have not suffered. The De
partment of State telegraphed asking
whether anything further can be done
to protect American citizens.
The Acting Consul General of the
United States in Egypt telegraphed
Secretary Frelinghuysen from Alex
andria ar follows: "I remained at
Cairo up until the last moment. Our
records and my personal effects there
are lost. All American citizens
saved. General Stone's family in
sisted on remaining at Cairo, and
their destiny is unknown. Commu
nication now interrupted."
BERLIN, July 22. —The Prussian
Cross Gazette, in an article on the pol
icy of Germany, says the maintenance
of the former state of things is impos
sible since Egypt has practically
fallen under the dominion of England.
It is impossible to prognosticate the
work of the future, as no power has
disclosed its plans. England has not
yet reckoned up the consequences of
her course. There is no necessity,
therefore, for Germany to prematurely
take sides. Bismarck in deciding up
on the attitude to be taken will not
prove false to tradition.
llussia appears, from the language
of the accredited organ of the Govern
ment, to demand that England before
acting on the assumption that the Porte
has virtually declined to send troops
to Egypt shall come to an agreement
with the powers

Miller Disrespectfully •
WASHINGTON, July 21.—During the
discussion in the House on Wednesday
Representative Miller, in speaking on
the Smalls-Tillman contested election
case, referred to the ma sacre at Ham
burg, S. C., July 8, 187 C, implicating
Seuator Butler, one of the present Sen
ator from the palmetto State, who, he
said, was the leader of the mob. Mr.
Miller also, in the course of his speech,
said that at one poll, the home of Sen
ator Butler, more thitu two thousand I
people were prevented from voting and
armed militia were drawn tip near and
commanding the ballot-box. The
South Carolina Senator was put in a
very bad light by the Pennsylvania
Representative, and when the former
saw Mr Miller's speech printed in the
Record, to-day he could not retain his
feelings. Consequently the sleepy
Senators were considerably astonished
when Wade Hampton's colleague ro*e
to a question of personal privilege and
said: "Mr. President, I observe in the
Record this morning that a person in
another place made a wanton attack on
my character and committed a breach
of the privileges of this body, for which
he was not called to order, in discuss
ing a contested election case. I shall
not at this late day be betrayed into a
controversy with this individual,
whose acquaintance I have never had
the misfortune to make, but shall
rather leave him to the judgment and
contempt of all honorable men for
attacking another in a forum where he
(under the cover of the privileges of
that forum) could not be answered, for
declining to allow the correction of the
falsehoods he was ut ering, for garbling
the evidence, preversion of the truth
and falsification of the record, and for
refusing to give the person attacked
the benefit of his owu statement. I
have withstood the mastiffs of the Rad
ical party in the past and can afford to
dismiss with this brief notice the yelp
ing of this cur of low degree. The
name of this creature, I believe, is
Samuel 11. Miller."
