A well-dressed man, about 35 years of age,
attracted the attention of the officers at the
white house last Saturday, by his efforts to
gain admission to tie building by the rear
entrance. He was informed that no yisi
to.a were allowed in on Saturday, and that
he should go to the front door when he
came again, but he persisted in his de
mands to be admitted, declaring that he
must see the president. His actions and
violent language Boon identified him as a
crank of the dangerous sort, and he was
taken into custody ut once. When brought
to the station-house he gave the name of
aamuel v enable, and very reluctantly told
that he was from the neighboring county
in Maryland. His refusals to explain his
reasons for wonting to see the president
cawsed the police authorities to lock him
upaatil his friends could be communicated
with. Since the death of Tica President
Hendricks the officials and guardians about
the white house have redoubled their vigi
lance, as the situation is one to attract
cranks in that direction. No one 01 un
natural demeanor or appearance is allowed
to pass without question, any exhibition
of eccentricity on the part of the visi
tor is followed by expulsion. Long experi
ence in dealing with cranks has made the
white house doorkeepers expert in detecting
signs of insanity, and no risks are taken in
permitting suspicious people to enter.

told the parents not to remove, and three
days after the boy died. "When the thick
crust from ovor the wcunds was being
removed, myriads of maggots were found
that had eaten their way.down to the bones.
The old crank explained that he considered
the mites necessasy expedient for reroming
all poisonous matter from the system. If
that we? done that he would cause the
the maggots to disappaar by addressing him
self to Christ, whom he claimed to know
personally. He admitted having several pa
tients in a state where they are slowly be
ing eaten up by maggots. The attention
of the health commissioner has been called
to the mrtter.
The war department has recently received
such reports from its officials in Utah re

The recent shooting tf a Mormon by a

las, which is situated a few miles from Salt
Lake City. This movement, however was
not particularly on account of any fear of a
Mormon rebellion, but had been in con
templation for some time. The fores now

Governor John A. Martin has promulgat
ed a proclamation calling for a special
Bession of the Kansas Legislature to con
vene January 39th. He enumerates his
reasons for this action as follows :
First : Because of the fact that the Con
stitution requires a legislative appointment
of the State every five years, and the last
legislature failed to make such an appoint
ment. Second: Because of the failure of the
State Legislature to pass the bill appropriat
ing money for the current expenses of the
State Reform School.
Third : Because certain recently organ

Fouth: Because of a failure of the last
Legislature to make any appropriation for
the expenses ol the deaf and dumb asylum

Fifth : Because of the failure of the last
Legislature to make any appropriation to

DEATH OF WILLIAM XT; VAKDERBH.T.
Particulars Appertaining; to His Sudda
Taking OCT. He Dies of Paralysis.
New York, December 8. Wm, H. Van
derbilt died in this city to-day
of paralysis. Life had scarcely de
parted when the news of his death reached
the city. For a time it was not credited,
but when finally confirmed, caused much
Mr. Vanderbilt's death was sudden and
painless. He had been an early riser, even
through tho increasing ill health of the
past two winters. This morning be had held
his UBual morning conference with his sons
Cornelius and Willie m X., and his cri
vate secretary. At lunch Mr. Vanderbilt j
seemed in unusually good spirits. Early i
in the afternoon, Mr. Garrett, president of
the Baltimore & Oaio, called, and the two
magnates had a long talk over railroad
matters, when Mr. Garrett was suddenly
made aware of slight indistinctness in Mr.
Vanderbilt's speech that grew into an ar
ticulate sound. As he leaned over to catch
his words, Mr. Vanderbilt pitched forward
without a word of warning, and fell heavily
on the floor, on his face. "Mr. Garrett
sprang to his feet, and seizing a pillow
from the sofa, laid it under his friend's
head, and then sammoned Mrs. Vander
bilt and George, the youngest son. Mes
sengers were eent in haste for physicians.
One from the neighborhood responded
first, and was followed immediately by the
family physician, Dr. J. W. McLean. Such
simple restoratives es were at hand had
been applied, but human aid was in vain.
Mr. Vanderbilt never spoke or moved
after he fell under the sudden stroke. He
died within a few minutes without a strug
gle. To all intents and purposes he was
dead the instant he fell forward upon the
THE ARMIES OF THE MISSOURI.
What General Schofleld Says Concerning
Major General Schofield commanding
the armies of the MiBSOuri, saya in his
annual report that his force in round
numbers consists of 9,500 infantry, 5,600
cavalry and 280 artillery, aggregating 15,
They occupy sixty-five different sta
tions, giving an average of 231 men at
each. He has the following to say:
"The number of Indians in this divis
ion is reported by the interior depart
ment as about 175,000. Of these about
53,000 are rated as peaceable, tbe re
maining 122,000 being more or less un
civilized and warlike. Their warriors
number at least 25,000; equal to the en
tile strength of the United States army,
or two-thirds more than the whole num
ber of troops serving in this division."
The question to be now considered is
whether the vast interests of life and
property involved does not demand that
such miluary measures be adopted as
will prevent in the future any wholesale
destruction of life and property by the
uncivilized tribes of tne country.
I beg leave to submit that in a country
of fifty million of people, oO.UOU men
would be a small army to be maintained
with some reference to possible foreign
wars, but when tne country Has constant
daily use for nine-tenths of that force to
protect its people and their property
against destruction Dy savage tnuee in
their midst, it is extremely unwise to
trust the army at its present strength.
The Indians are well mounted, havinz
several ponies to each man, are well
armed and abundantly supplied with
ammunition. Being trained from early
childhood they are excellent horeemen
and expert marksmen equal in these
respects to the best regular troops in the
world. It is manifestly impossible to
permanetly over-awe or hold in subjec
tion such hordes of savages by the show
