THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. C., DECEMBER 10, 1881.
INSULTING THE SOLDIERS.
Tor sixteen years "the soldier element" has
had everything pretty much its own way. Gen
erals and Colonels, by virtue of those titles, (won
in many cases hy political influence and by no
merits of their own,) have had the inside track
in all the nominating conventions. They have
received the best offices in the gift of the people.
If the preponderance of the "soldier ele
ment" elevated and purified the public service it
would be welcome. No taxpayer, no man free from
.party shackles, would object to the presence tf
any element that would work such a charm. But
the public service has been at no time more cor
rupt than since military candidates have been in
the ascendant. New York Journal of Commerce.

LOOKING FOR PENSIONS.
"The Mexican War Veterans met recently in
New York to perfect an organization and to dis
cuss the bill to be presented to the Legislatre by
Senator Jacobs, which promises pensions for
services in the conflict of 1846-8. A permanent
organization was effected, Jacob R. Riley being
schosen president. Colonel Kerrigan, vice-president,
and E. H. Johnson, secretary. The bill that
the veterans resolved to push is entitled "An act
for the relief of the surviving members of the First
Regiment of New York Volunteers." It calls for
the appointment of a commission, to consist of
the Governor, the Comptroller, and State Treas
urer, which shall decide upon all applications for
the peusions. This commission, the bill provides,
shall give a certificate to all persons now residing
in the State, who, on due evidence, are shown to
have been members of the First regiment in the
Mexican war, on which the Comptroller shall
order to be paid $12 per month, in quarterly in
stallments, for two years from the passage of the
act. The certificates are not to be assignable,
nor is the money due thereon to be attached.
The gross amount of the claims is to be inserted
in the general appropriation bill after the same
has been appropriated.
THE DEATH OF GENERAL KILPATRICK.
The consul at Valparaiso telegraphs to the State
Department that Minister Judson Kilpatrick died
at Santiago on Sunday last. He was born in
New Jersey in 1833 and graduated at West
Point in April, 1861. He served as captain at
the battle of Big Bethel, and in the autumn of
the same year became a lieutenant-colonel of
cavalry. In 1862 he took part in various opera
tions of the Army of the Potomac. He was ap
pointed a brigadier-general of volunteers in May,
1863, after which he engaged in a raid to release
the Federal prisoners in Richmond. He com
manded the cavalry of Sherman's army on the
march from Atlanta to the sea. After the war
he took an active part in politics, being minister
to Chili during Grant's first term. In 1872 he
supported the nomination of Horace Greeley. He
was appointed minister to Chili by President
Garfield soon after his accession last March. He
has been ill for some time and his death has been
ALBERT H, FROST POST, G A. R.

and should apply to all pensioners at the same
rate at which they are now entitled to a. pension."
Tli ere have been two Mussulman revolts dur

AN EYE TO BUSINESS.
The following extract from the testimony in
the Guiteau case explains itself:
The next witness was Edmund A. Bailey, the
stenographer who accompanied the District At
torney to the jail on the 3d of July and subse
quent days, and took short-hand notes of the
prisoner's statements. He was asked to produce
his notes, but he said that he had destroyed
them, because their substance had been embodied
in a transcript which he had handed to the Dis
trict Attorney. Mr. Scoville called upon the
District Attorney to produce the transcript,
which Mr. Corkhill declined doing on the ground
that it was got up for his private information.
The witness deaied that he had been introduced
to Mr. Scoville or the prisoner as a reporter of
the New York Herald.
The Prisoner " You came to me and said that
your name was Nordhoff, and I supposed that
you were a relative to Mr. Nordhoff, the regular
correspondent of the Herald. The whole thing
was a trick and a lie.
Mr. Davidge (to the witness) " Tell us about
The Witness " I was at my office on Sunday
afternoon when Mr.Corkhill telephoned forme. He
said he was going out to the jail to see Guiteau
and asked me if I would go along. I was not in
his employment in any way. When we got to
Guiteau's cell he was in bed. Mr. Corkhill in
troduced himself as the District Attorney and
me as a young friend of his."
The Prisoner "He said, 'This is a correspond
ent of the New York Herald, sent by Mr. Con
nery to get your statement.' "
The Witness "I deny that emphatically."
The prisoner repeated his assertions and added,
"I was anxious to get the truth out before the
American people ; and I supposed that you were
the man to do the work, and you did not do it."
The Witness " The prisoner said he was anx
ious to have his statement published and Mr.
Corkhill said: 'Mr. Bailey is taking notes for
my guidance; but I will make such portions of
them public, at the proper time, as I may see fit.'
Subsequently Guiteau asked me in what paper I
proposed to publish them and I said that I pre
ferred the Herald. That was about ten days after
I first saw him, and after I had received a com
munication from Mr. Bennett.
The Prisoner "You showed me a false tele
gram, signed J. G. Bennett. That is the kind of
man you are."
Mr. Scoville, to witness "Did you sell that
report to the Herald? "
The Prisoner "Yes ; and he got 500 for it."
The Witness " Mr. Bennett fully understood
the circumstances under which that report was
written. Mr. Connery looked over the manu
scriptandsaidthathedid not want more thanseven
calumns. Not a word was said about pay at that
time. He asked me to name a price and I would
not do it. Two weeks afterward he asked me if
the Government had not paid me. I said it had
not, and he sent me a check for $500."
The Prisoner " Just as I supposed. I did not
know a word about it. It was a mere guess on
The New York Herald says: Captain George
Butler is a fine specimen of American manhood.
He fought very bravely in the war between the
North and the South, and was severely wounded
at Gettysburg, losing his right arm. He now re
sides at Rome, and is a painter by profession. He
is as clever with the sword as with n brush, not
withstanding that he has only his left hand avail
able. Captain Butler, the other day, was walk
ing out with a brother artist, also an American,
when Signor Mosso, an Italian, accosted Captain
Butler's friend. Captain Butler said, "Do not
answer him, for he is tipsy," and immediately re
ceived a slap in the face. A challenge followed.
The antagonists met at a quarter past five on the
afternoon of the 18th, at a spot outside Porta
Cavaleggiera. They were attended by their re
spective seconds and surgeons, and fought with
long Italian rapiers, terrible weapons in the hands
of strong and skillful men, being very thin, and
sharp at the point as a razor. They penetrate with
wonderful facility, and are rarely used in duels un
less mischief is meant. Signor Mosso is the son of
an Italian officer and is employed in the Govern
ment Tobacco Department. He wears eyeglasses.
Although an excellent fencer, and possessing the
advantage of a right arm, it soon became evident
that he was no match for his antagonist. After
a few passes Captain Butler aimed a thrust at
Signor Mosso, striking and smashing his eyeglass,
breaking the steel rim. The rapier glanced a
little aside, and penetrated the flesh between the
eye and nose. The wround was not dangerous,
but it gave an excuse to the seconds and surgeons
to terminate the conflict.
GENERAL SHERMAN'S OPINION.
Desiring to show our distinguished visitor
some attention, a very small man, -with a large
mustach, representing an alleged morning paper
of this city, sidled up to General Sherman as he
was viewing the cotton patch near the Exposition
grounds. " General," yawped the little man, "do
you think cotton can be successfully raised on
such soil as that?" "Humph!" remarked the
General, "yes, I think it can." "What else can
be raised on it?" asked the little reporter, smil
ing on William Tecumseh in a genial sort of way.
"What else?" replied the General. "Oh, any
thing else can be raised there. Why, I raised
h on this very spot myself 17 years ago! "
The Russian army is distinguishing itself. A
dispatch states that twenty-two soldiers of the
regiment of Hussars of the Guard are being tried
by court-martial this week for strangling one of
their officers. A Caucasian, Prince Chervachidse,
lieutenant of the same regiment, is being tried
for sabering, last July, a shopkeeper who had ac
cidently entered a room he had reserved at a res
taurant. Another prince, also in the Hussars of
the Guard, who last week playfully put a bullet
into his servant and nearly killed him, will prob
aly be brought before a court before long.
