of Judge Bradley.
&ENEEAL SCHOHELD SCORED
Action of the Latter In Ordering the Arrest

Washington, Oct. 10. Judge Brad

ordered the discharge from custody of
Captain George A. Armes, who was ar
rested on the order of lieutenant Gen
eral Schofield just prior to the latter's
retirement from command of the army
for having -written him an insulting let
ter. Judge Bradley scored the action of
the latejjeneral of the. army, character
izing it as unlawful, tyrannical and ca
pricious. In discharging Captain Armes, whose
arrest and confinement General Scho

arrest, no crime has been filed since, and
no confinement since his arrest was nec
essary. The aires t and confinement
were unnecessary and oppressive. As
theioffense charged would, upon sub
stantiation, result only in reprimand,
suspensiou or dismissal, the possession
of tlie body of the accused was not nec
essary to carry out the charges, as would
have been the case if imprisonment or
death was to be the sentence."
Speaking of the president's power in
army matters, tho judge said: "Tho
preadent of tho United States is com-mador-iu-chief
of tho officers of the
army on the retired list. This function
of the. chief executive, however, is unac

retired officers, is shorn of all power to
impose duties, and appears to be an

Work on the Missouri Presents an Unsur
passed Example of Engineering.
Washington, Oct. 10. General
Oraighill, chief of engineers, has re
turned to Washington from a tour of in
spection of the river and harbor works
in the upper Mississippi and Missouri
valleys. He found the government pro
jects there in a most gratifying state of
progress, and the result of Ms observa
tions doubtless will serve to strengthen
the hands of tho western people in their
application to congress for liberal appro
priations to improve their great water
ways. Tho works on the Missouri in
particular have been pushed forward
with remarkable speed by Colonel Suter,
and in General Craighill's estimation
present an unsurpassed example of suc
cessful engineering. In one stretch of
18 miles in tho neighborheod of St.
Joseph, as a result of the improvements,
55,000 -acres of new land were deposited
by the river, thus adding not only to tho
agricultural resources of that section,
but by narrowing the river, greatly im-
proving navigation. In addition to this
the works have protected 13,000 acres of
farm land from erosion.

Warm DiscnsrJon Over a Resolution
Sympathy With Debs.
Peoria, Oct. 10. At the meeting of
the State Federation of Labor a resolu
tion was reported that E. V. Debs was
unjustly condemned to imprisonment,
being sent there without trial by jury,
extending sympathy to him so far as the
methods employed by judge Woods had
caused his incarceration, but "not in
dorsing the warfare being waged by Mr.
Debs against trades unionism generally,
and the Various railroad brotherhoods
in particular, and calling upon him to
ceaso his unholy stab at the only means
that can be used by tho wage workers
to better their condition."
This resolution drew out a red hot,
protracted discussion, during . whioh
Debs was both highly and warmly eulo
gized and violently criticised and de
nounced. Finally Jhe -.resolution- was
sliehtlv modified and adopted.
NO arONEY FOR MISSIONARIES.
Conjp"0ntional Society In Unusual S trait o
New York, Oct. 10. The Congrega
tional Home 2Iisriouary society is in un
usual straits financially. It is in debt
to the banks $179,000. its treasury is
empty and, :nasnmch as only $100,000
of the indebtedness is-seenred by collat
eral, the banks have refused further un
secured leans. The salaries of the home
missionaries were due Oct. 1. Failure
to receive them, means in many cases
borroving of local banks at liigh rates
of interest. The society is absolutely
dependent for the time being upon tho
gifts of churches and individuals. The
present situation is due not only to tho
hard times, but tho chronic omission of
tho Congregational churches to take
the missionary collections in the sum
mer and early fall. Tho sevority of tho
crisis is but temporary.

Father Spath, the Catholic priest who
officiated, forbade the pallbearers to en

of any society not approved by the

the churches. The incident created a
great deal of feeling at Port Huron.
Bishop Fdley was seen hero and asked
about tho matter. He said that no rulo
prevailed which would prohibit tho

had committed an egregious, blunder if
he excluded the pallbearers as stated.

MADE IN CONGRESS.
THAT HAVE COME
INTO COMMON USE.
Tho First Buncombe Speech "Was Delivered
In 1820 liialno and ConklJns: In Debate.
Famona Sentences Pronounced by States
men When Not In Congress.
Many of tho host known and most
quoted phrases with which tho Amer
ican people are familiar originate in
There is no reason why, if a good
thing is said upon tho floor of the senate
or house, tho country should not know
it in 24 hours. With a press gallery
thronged with correspondents who are
always ready and eager to pick up the
novel phrase or the apt description, with
tho great press associations distributing
the debates from one end of the country
to the other, and with newspapers only
too anxious to give currency to the lat
est expression, a man who says a good
thing in congress one afternoon may
wako up tho next morning and find his
saying in everybody's mouth. There is
something in tho atmosphere of con
gress, too, that develops the latent wit,
and inspires to repartee. If a senator or
a representative has anything in him at
all, it is bound to come out in a rough
and tumble debate with a political op
ponent. Many of the congressmen have
already had their genius in this direc
tion tested upon the stump and know
how to hold their own in the face of all
comers. It does not always follow, how
ever, that a statesman who is good in
debate will achieve f amo by uttering a
phrase that becomes popular.
To go back to tho beginning of con
gressional history is to discover many
phrases uttered in congress which are
still current. It was as far back as 1820,
for instance, that Felix Walker, a mem
ber of the North Carolina district which
included Buncombe county, apologized
for tho emptiness of his remarks by
stating that he had to make a speech
"just for Bniieombe. " This is a saying
which has como down through the years
as a byword. "Liberty and union, ono
and inseparable, now and forever, " was
uttered by Webster in his famous reply
to Hayne. Lincoln's "with malice to
ward nono and charity toward all" was
first, heard in the halls of congress when
his second inaugural address was read
to tho assembled representatives. In
later years Senator Ingalls contributed a
number of epigrammatic sentences, tho
best known of which perhaps was utter
ed in his wordy duel with Senator
Brown of Georgia. Tho latter had a
habit of rubbing his hands together as
he talked, and Ihgalls, with bitter em
phasis, described him as "washing his
hands with -invisible soap in impercept
ible water. r' Another remark by In

was discussing tho-oleomargarine bill
and said regarding certain dairy prod
ucts that ho stood "in awo at their
strength and reverence for their antiq
uity. " In Proctor KnorVswidoly copied
Duluth speech occurs that phraso, "tho
zenith city of the unsalted seas," a titlo
which Dniuth has always proudly kept.
Blamo and Conkhug, with all their
greatness, left no singlo phrase as a leg
acy of their participation in congres
sional debates. "Burn these letters"
was often quoted after the Mulligan af
fair, but this sentence was not first ut
tered in congress. The famous debate
between tho two men, which estranged
their whole lives, occurred in April,
i860, over a very trivial matter the
continuanco of the bureau of tho provost
marshal general. It gavo Blaine, how
ever, a chanco to satirize Conkhug in a
singlo sontence. An article written by
Theodore Tilton had appeared in which
inkling had been likened to Winter
Davis. "Th"(Tresem bianco is great," ox-
claimed Blaine, with trancent satire.
'It is striking ! Hyperion to a satyr,
Thersites to Hercules, mud to marble, a
dunghill to a diamond, a singed cat to
Bengal tiger, a whining puppy to a
roaring lien. "
Another debate in which Conkling,
then in tho senate, wa3 a conspicuous
figure, resulted in a" sentence which has
not been forcotten. Senator Lamar of
Mississippi had resented as a falsehood
a charge of broken faith made by Mr.
Conkling, and the latter retorted that
Lamar was a coward, a blackguard and
a liar. Tho Mississippi senator, who had
never been accused of cowardice, looked
over to, his opponent and. sarcastically
apologized for his firstremark. "It was
one," ho said, "snch as no good man
would deserve and no bravo man would
wear." Then he waited for Conkling to
reply, but the New York senator was si-
Many of tho sharp things said in con
gress are left out of The Becord. Cobb's
Where was I at?" does not appear in
official print, and Senator Wolcott's
quotation of tho Spanish proverb to
Senator Carey, "It is a waste of lather
:o shavo an ass," has also been cutout.
A few famous sentences came very near
having their origin in congress. Davy
Crockett, the author of "Be sure you'ro
right, then go ahead" was a member of
the house of representatives for two
years, but it does not appear that this
oft quoted advice was originated with
him there. Henry Clay's "I would rath
er be right than president" was said to
tome friends at the capitol, but not in
public debate. Senator Sherman, too, is
the author of tho "mending fences"
phrase, although he waited until he was
at his home in Mansfield beforo he ut
tered it. Whilo Hayes was still presi
dent and Mr. Sherman was secretary of
the treasury he entertained hopes of a
presidential nomination. Just before the
Republican national convention met he
went to Mansfield, and while there was
called upon for a speech. In the course
ox nis remarks JHf- boernian denied nav-
ing traveled to Ohio to promote his pres
idential aspirations. "I have simply
come, lie saia, to menu myiences,
which are greatly in need of repair. "
