Cincinnati, Ohio. Feb. 17. In a
speech at tho dedication of tho First
Regiment Armoiy, on Saturday even
ing, cx-Govcrnor Fornker said that ho
was asked by telegraph fiom tho War
Department at Washington in 1877, when
tho Canadian fishery situation was
strained, how many nrmed men ho could
rush to tho Canadian border In case of
a sudden emergency. Ho said similar
messoces wero sent to tho Governors of
Adjutant-General Kclton laughed
when the nbovo dispatch was shown to
him this mornlnc.
"It Is true," he said, "that tho War
Dcpaitment, in 1887, nsked tho Gov
ernors of nil tho States how many
men they could concentrate at a given
point in a given space of time, but" they
had nothing to do with tho
Canadian situation, nnd nothing
was said about rushine: men
to the Canadian border. The War
Department lecognizes that In case of
ilots or sudden troubles tho people
must depend upon tho National Guard
to preset vo peaco, and we seek to keep
up the inteicst in tho Guard ns much
as we can.
"With that Idea In view wo sent out
circulars to tho Governors in 1838, ask
ing them how many men they could
concentialo at n given point
in an emergency, for tho purpose
of giving the members of tho National
Guaid something to discuss in their
nimoiics and of stirring up a rivalry
between the Stales in this matter. Tho
Governor is mistaken if ho supposes
that these circulars had anything to do
with tho Canadian situation.

11 i THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

WHEREAS, the enemy by a sudden In
cursion havo succeeded In Invading tho
capital of tho nation, defended ut the mo
ment by troops less numcious than their
own, nnd almost entirely of tho militia,
during their possession of which, though
for n single day onlv, they wantonly do
ftrojed tho public edlflees, having no rela

nor used at tho time for military annoy
ance; eomo of these edifices belnc also
costly monuments of taste and of the arts,
and others depositories of tho public
archives, not on!)' precious to the nation as
tho memorials of its origin nnd Its eirly
transactions, but Interesting to all nations,
ns contributions to tbo general stock or
historical instruction and political science:
And vthciens, advantage has been taken
of tho loss of a fort, moro immediately
guarding tho neighboring tonu of Alex
andria, to placo tlio town within tho lango
of a naval force, too long and too much In
tho habit of abusing Its superiority, where
ever it can bo applied, to require as the
alternative of n gencrul conllagiatlon, an
undisturbed plunder of privnto properly,
which has been executed In a manner pecu
liarly distressing to tho Inhabitants who
bad, Inconsiderately, cast themselves ou tho
justice and genoroBity of tho victor:
Anu wucreas, it now appears oy a direct
communication from tho British naval
commander on tbo American station, to ho
bis avowed purposo to employ tho forco
under bis direction "In destroying and lay
iDg waste such towns and districts upon the
coast as may be found assailable;" adding
to this declaration, tho insultlDg pretext
that It Is In retaliation for a wanton de
struction committed by tho army of tho
United States In Upper Canada, when It Is
notorious, that no destruction lias been
committed, which, notwithstanding tho
multiplied outrages previously committed
by tho enemy, was not unauthorised, and
promptly shown to bo so; and that tbo
United States have been as constant in their
endeavors to reclaim tho enemy from such
outrages, by tho contrast of their own ex
ample", as thoy havo been ready to termi
nate, on reasonable conditions, the war
And whereas, theso proceedings and de
clared purposes, which exhibit n deliberate
disregard of tho principles of humanity,
and tho rules of civilised warfare, and
which must givo to tho oxlsting war a char
acter of extended devastation and barbar
ism, at tho very moment of negotiations
for peace, Invited by tho enemy himself,
leave no prospect of safety to any thlug
within tho reach of his predatory and in
cendiary operations, but in n manly and
universal determination to chastise and ex
pel tho Invader:
Now, therefore, I, James Madison, presi
dent of the United States, do Issuo this
my proclamation, exhorting all the good
people thereof, to unito their hearts and
hands In giving effect to tho ample means
possessed for that purpose. I enjoin it on all
ofllccrs, civil and military, to exert them
selves In executing tho duties with which
thoy aro respectively charged. And moro
especially, I require tbo ofllccrs command
ing tho respcctlvo military districts, to bo
Vigilant and alert in providing for tho de

most convenient thereto, whether thgy bo

On nn occasion which appeals so forcibly
to tbo proud feelings and patriotic devo

Oitawa, Ont., Feb. 17. Thcio is
every evidence that a sciious riot will
take place in Hull to-morrow night if
Miss Beitha Wilght, tho ovaugellst,
aga'n attempts to hold her mission setv
icc In thnt city. A large number of
volunteers have promised to escort her
across the river from this city fully
armed to protect themselves from the
Hull mob. From tbo pulpits of the
several Catholic churches a pastoral
from the Archbishop was read in Hull
last night, requesting all good Catholics
to refrain fiom taking any part in the
Mr. Donath'tt Ambition.
A movement is on foot by tho labor
ing element in the various downtown
Depnttments to sccuro the appointment
of August Donnth ns Consul-General to
Berlin. Mr. Donnth is chief clerk in
class four of tho Pension Olllco nnd is
one of the national representative labor
men. Ho holds tho position of presi
dent of the board of trustees of tho Na
tional Typographical Union. From
tlio expressions heard from several
prominent labor people to-day thoy
seem to think that labor organizations
should rccclvo moro recognition from
tbo present Administration, and every
effoit, it is said, will bo mado to biing
about Mr. Donath's appointment.
