Tlio rulo laid down Inst week by Sccro
tnry I.nmnr, In tho enso of Mr. Itnrrlsoti of
llio Land Office, has rnlscd another qucs
lion Hint Is of a great dcnl moro Import
ance In Its effect. Tho section of tho stat
utes tinder which Harrison Is barred from
practice before tho Interior Department In
business dating prior to Ids resignation Is
not special In Its application, but covers
any person appointed to net as an officer,
clerk or employe of any of tho Department
slneo tho llrst of June, ISS'3. Tho Secretary
Is now revolving tlio propriety of making
a rule to apply to employ os In tlio l'ntctit
Ofllrc. Whcro tho ruling In Harrison's case
would affect ono attorney, n rulo shutting
out cx-1'ntcnt Oflleo employes would affect
a doren. It has been tho practlco to mo
he l'atcnt Oflleo as n school In which to

"You would bo surprised," said Mnor
I.ockwood, Chief Clerk of tlio Interior De

who might want to practlco before tho

of men who nio of great value to the De

'I'ho "Yoiiiip; Napoleon" of Fraud
illulces Another Stiitoiuent.
Ferdinand Ward, tho most remarkable
financier that tho country has over pro
duced, has miulo another statement, lu
which he gives additional figures and Infor
mation, and answers some of the criticisms
mado upon his llrst statement. lie says lu
support of his assertion, that Ulysses S.
(Irnut, jr., ("Duck"), know of tho ullegcd
contract business of tho firm of Grant it
Ward) that tho statcmentof young (I rant's
account shows corrections in his own hand
writing. This nccount was ns follows:
Profits received, &fi7i,(100; checks on con
tracts after May, $7$U,U0O; bauk balance,
"This shows," says Mr. Wnrd, "that tho
nccount has been seen, checked mid ap
ptoved by young (irnnt himself. That Is
ids handwriting, those nro his figures, and
It Is a elmplo mental and physical Impossi
bility for him to avoid tho responsibility ot
them; that's nil."
Mr. Ward's attention wns called to Mayor
(Irneo's denial of any connection with the
firm ot Grant & Waul, and the statement
that he had lost, not inndo, money by his
transaction! with that firm.
Tinning to the letter-book1 nnd tunning
ovcrlts pages, Mr. Wind's linger rested on
No. 1119, on which Is a cony, clear nnd dis
tinct, of tho letter ho said ho wrote nnd
sent to Mr. Grace Juno 2S, 1831. In con
firmation of his assertion thnt the pecuniary
transactions mentioned in that letter-book
the snmo book In which tho letter Mr.
Grace denies having received Is found Mr.
Ward called attention lo a largo number of
transactions, each nml every one ot which
ho traced distinctly from stmt to finish,
showing tho dato of tho loan, tho corre
spondence that passed in icsncct of tho
ngicctncnt signed by Grant ft Ward ami tlio
checks with which Mr. Grnco was paid his
half tho profit made thereon down to tho
final culminating transaction, when tho
principal iiscit was returned.
About Colonel Fred. Grant Mr. Ward
says: "He did get what I say ho got, what
the checks and accounts show ho got. Ho
was deceived in believing there woru Gov
einiueiit contracts, and ho was therefore
wiong when, being so deceived, ho said he
never heard of any euch thing nsuGovcru
incnt contract, and as It was with him so it
wns with others. They were deceived, but
thev thought they Knew, nnd so long ns
they profited they wero willing to paitlcl
pato lu what they now bay they never
About General Grant ho further says: "f
have never Intimated, much less said, that
General Grant took out iWOO.OOO over his In
vestment. AVhat I liavo said tho books
show, and that Is that, as matter of fact, he
did iccelve, according to tho undisputed ac
counts, just what the Jlernld published tho
other day. His shale of the profits as a
member ot the linn of Grant it Ward wero
JiaMCO.fc'J; profits which I paid him were
(lU,0.liO; stock losses properly chargeablo
to him, but assumed by tho linn of Grant &
AVnrd, S'J4,g-l".i8. Total, S-Ul.OTtl.57."
Of tlio llelmont Itullroad cc Mining Com
pany Waul euys:
"It would seem ns It General Gordon,
having sold Grant A, Ward the mine, nml
being Its president nnd living ns ho did on
tho ground nnd being Interested as he
sci ins to wuul tho public to think ho was
In Its welfare, would havo advised with
tlio mnungcr nml consulted Grant it Ward
about the way things wero going on, .Mr.
Otis was an army olllcer, and tho Grants
put him there, I suppose, from a deslro to
help him along, but licucnil Gordon should
have nd vised him."
As to the lean ot $18,000 to General Gor
don, Word fays: "Wo assumed tho loan at
tho Marino Hank nnd paid it, nnd on .March
t), lbS'J, the directors of tho company held n
meeting and received and accepted 'General
J. II, Gordon's resignation, General Gordon
llrst asked for a loan of $1.1,000, but not
getting this ho nccepted$18,000, and Instead
of paying this loan ho paid no attention to
tho calls ot the bnuk for money, so Grant it
Ward 'had to pay It; and it was then, of
course, natural that ns General Gordon had
lost nil Interest in tho stock of the company
ho should deslro to frco himself from nil
liability, and did so by resigning,"

In Salt Lake City, recently, W. A. Itos
sltcr, manager of a theatre, nnd Georgo
Jlonmcy, wero both convicted of unlawful
cohabitation nnd sentenced to tlio peniten
tiary for six months and to pay $300 Hue.
They got closely shaven nnd their hair cut
prior to their Ecutviico. When nsked If
they had nnjthlng to say thoy refusal to
niako nny pledges. This is classed by tlio
chinch organ as "genuine, eloquence,"
showing that they preferred Imprisonment
rather than to bo tecrcant to obligations of
ii mo&t sacred character. Their friends
gathered mound with words of cheer and
thev went to pilson ns martyrs, llobert
Bwolm and Thomas l'cicher pleaded guilty
to cohabitation. They begged nnd wero
granted time to prepare for tho support of
their families befoio being sentenced.
It Is common to seictiade convicted per

liy iho dismissal of clerk Ilnyden for
speaking disrespectfully of the Presi

the case of n Virginia postmaster, tho facts
concerning which have becu laid before tlio
President. Tho story is that a country
Eostmastcr in tho Old Dominion, annoyed

promptly respond to the delivery of a cer

petulant demand for n response. The de
linquent explained that he was holding tho

half-dozen subsequent Inquiries elicited no
reply until finally his Importunities so
harassed the other postmaster that ho sent

on the fact that by nn order of Juno IB Inst

In salaries to bo paid teachers lu tho Nor

nmcuiited to moro than halt tlio itollclt.

should bo suspended, Instead ot scaling
down the salaries of the teachers, who wero
working on an established salary. If tills
ncllou wcio taken Instead of II per cent,
