men often sold to consumers at or below re

meeting was, if necessary, to organize a
State association of dealers.
Mr: George W. Hotchkiss, a representative
of the letail lumbermen of Chicago, gave the
history and plan of an organization in his
city with the same purpose in view now
sought for by the members assembled. A
copy of the lules and constitution of the
Chicago organization was piesented and
their substantial adoption urged as an effec

During the year ending Dec. 31st, 1877, the
department membership has been increased by
the organization of Acme hook and ladder Co.

portioned among seven companies*.
The apparatus now in active service consist*
of one Amoskcag steamei, four two-horse hose

of three fom-wheel hose carriages, one hose
jumper and 500 feet of oldhoBe.
The department has in seivice 14 horses,
eight of which are owned by the city, the re
mainder being hired. Only one hoise was lost
by sickness during the year. Oats, hay, feed
and bedding have been furnished at an expense
of $1.71 per week for each hoise.
There is at present 4,500 feet of fust class and
2,500 feet of second class hose now in service,
a very inadequate amount, and the purchase of
3,000 feet additional was strongly recom

suggestions as to the manner and importance of
turning in a prompt alarm was appended to
the report under this heading.
The manner of the division of the depart

advantages being a better protection to the
greatest number, and the provision of a reserve
to answer a second alarm.
All the companies, with the exception of
Hose No. 5 and Hook and Ladder No. 2, occupy
substantial and well appointed buildings owned

The Lord-Hicks wedding is nearly as much
of a sensation as at first. Th publication
of the letters written by Charles Lord has led
to an entire change of sentiment in favor of
the aged bridegroom, who appears sane in

the feeling is general that the children have
behaved in a thoroughly shameless manner.

Two men dressed in citizen's clothes, who
seemed to be hovering in the neighborhood
for no special reason, were pointed out as
detectives. They had been hired by Mr.
Thomas Lord, who is anxious to keep away
objectionable visitois, especially his son
Charles. Several visits were paid to-day by
friends of the lady and gentleman, and many
cards were left at the door. Both Mr. and

An Italian Prison.
[Florence Correspondence Philadelphia Tele
It is not generally known that the great
Turin Prison called *'La Generala," is turned
to a strange use. There are some 300 prison
ers in this gloomy abode guilty of the worst
crimes, many under 20 years of age, and the
building is so unsuited to the character of
its occupants that they live indiscriminately,
and riots are but too frequent. Government
so far has turned a deaf ear to the prayers
of the prison managers and directors that
some change may be made. Meanwhile an
extraordinary abuse has crept in. Sons of
noble Italian families are sent here when
they have given cause of complaint to then
parents, treating the prison as a reforma
tory. Thus you see among the worst
criminals, amidst the corrupt conversation
of the most abandoned and
vicious of that class of men who .are
styled the scum and refuse of
society, you will find -young noblemen, some
too crushed and spiritless to complain, a few
maddened by the horror of the position,
ready to do or say anything that will make
them forget for a time the truth. These
young fellows are kept for an indefinite time
in the prison by the inexorable cruelty of a
parent who thinks that he will thus break
the spirit of an undisciplined, wayward child.
The result is not satisfactory. Health, and
spirits, and every noble feeling are left in
the "Generala" never to be regained, and it
is not wonderful that the director of the
prison should try every means to obtain the
release of those unfortunate prisoners whose
sense of injustice is a perfectly right one,
and has a powerful influence over the other*
prisoners, and makes prison-riots and rebel
lions terribly frequent. O these occasions
the military are called in, and the offenders
shot down at once. I no instance is the re
quest for liberation addressed to the fathers
of the unjustly detained prisoners of any
avail. ''You see that handsome young man,'

THE LOUISIANA INIQUITY
SOME FIGURES OF THE VEBNON BE-
Not a New Story But Something to be lie
Read and RememberedDetails Which
Show the Infamous Fraud by Which
Hayes Was SeatedThe Evidence Which
Ought to Send the Returning: Board to the
Penitentiary and Hayes to Ohio.
[New Orleans Democrat, Feb. 1.]
When the glaring fraud perpetrated in
falsifying and forging the electoral returns
of Vernon parish was first brought to light
it most singularly failed to create any con
siderable stir among our national politicians,
or to startle those most interested in the
manipulation of the figures numerating the
votes, because it was only one of twenty-four
parishes where votes had been fraudulently
During the canvass of the vote of the
State*by parishes, Vernon parish was brought
up in due course of time, or at least was the
consolidated statement of the votes thereof.
TRICKERY FROM THE START.
These returns were received by mail, in a
registered letter, by the secretary of state on
November 17,1876, and then supposed to
have been kept in the custody of that officer
until the time when Wells, Anderson & Co.
saw fit to examine them. They contained
no appended protest at that time (as re
law, should it be deemed proper to
file a protest against their being counted
but, nevertheless, Vernon was placed among
about a dozen other protested parishes,
whose figures were unaccceptable to Pack
ard, to Kellogg, and others more or less in
terested in protesting the vote of Democratic
parishes on general principles.
The papers from Vernon were opened
on November 29th, in presence of the counsel
for the Democratic party and the two distin
guished visiting committees from the North
and, we believe, were inspected by Honest
John Sherman, and also by ex-Gov. Palmer.
The results of the consolidated statement of
votes were then read off by Kenner, and (ac-
cording to Mr. Chas. Cavanac of Democratic
counsel) while Kenner was reading them,
Gen. Thos. C. Anderson, who denies having
been present at this time, asked if there
'were any commissions S" returns with
these?" Kenner answered "There are no
commissioners' returns, only the consoli
dated statement of the votes of Vernon, com
piled by the supervisor of registration, and
sworn to on November 9th, before the dep
uty clerk of the court of that parish."
The results were then announced in the
presence of all the board members, the Dem
ocratic counsel and the distinguished visiting
committees. Th figures for presidental
electors were as follows: Fo Hayes electors
Kellogg 0, Burch 0, Joseph 2. Brewster 2,
Marks 2, Levisse 2, Joffrion 2: these two
votes being cast at poll No. 8.
The Democratic electors leceived each C17
votes. the statement was attached no
protest from any of the commissioners or
other officers of election, and no affidavits of
intimidation from any of the voteis in the
Now, after all these witnesses had seen the
consolidated statement of the votes, the pro
mulgation of the returns by the board, one
week later, showed the following results for
presidential electors: Kellogg 178, Burch 178,
and the other Hayes electors each 180 votes.
Each of the Tilden electors received 469
votes or 178 votes had been added to the
Republican side and a like number sub
tracted from the Democratic vote. Before
entering on the testimony of witnesses as to
how these wonderful results were effected,
let us take the discoveries ma% by experts
as to the manner in which the thing was
done. I the tabulated statement of poll
No. 2, where 0 was after some of the Hayes
electors, a straight mark had been rundown
from the 0, making it 9, and a 7 placed af
ter, making it 97. At poll No. 9, adding a
small top circle to an 0 made it 8, and plac
ing 1 after it made 81. I the Democratic
column simple erasures were made, and the
new figures that the board voted for the
people of Vernon put in their places. I the
addition the original figures at the bottom
are completely erased, by chemicals, it is
supposed, and the numbers 178 and 180 in
serted in tqeir places. I a like manner
the Democratic totals are obhteiated and
469 placed where 647 was when the
statement was first opened. From the
TESTIMONY OF WITNESSES,
more espesially that of Littlefield, given be
fore Dudley Field's committee in Washing
ton, it appeals that Wells' motive in making
these changes was to insure the seating of
several defeated candidates in the ninth ju
dicial district, which is composed of Vernon,
Grant and Rapides parishes. Mr. Hunter
was their Republican candidate for district
judge against Mr. Blackburn. The return
ing board had already thrown out the vote
of Grant parish, amounting to nearly 900
votes, but still this left Blackburn elected
district judge, until transposition of the fig
ures of the Vernon vote elected Mr. Hunter.
Littlefield swere before Field's mimittee
that he was instructed by Gov. Wells to
transpose the figures of two of the Vernon
polls, taking from the Democratic side the
stated number of votes and placing them on
the Republican side. The changes were
made according to order thus, ninety-seven
votes cast at poll No. 2 were taken from the
electoral and other candidates on the Demo
cratic side and placed to the credit of the
Republican candidates, and at poll No. 9
eignty-seven votes were so "transposed. The
witness stated that the necessary erasures
were made to do this, and other
figures put in their places. James An
drews, the Republican candidate for district
attorney, elected by this process, declined to
accept the place if so obtained,' and said that
he was not fairly elected. The papers Wells
had given him (Littlefield) to manipulate
commissioners' returns from polls Nos. 2
and 9 were given back to Wells by Littlefield
the day after the official promulgation was
made. Wells put them in his own pocket,
and according to his own statemement Lit
tlefield asked Wells "if it was not indescreet
in him to carry them on his person as they
might be discovered," and he advised Wells
to destroy them, and they were then burned.
The returning board president told Little
field to make away also with the consolidated
statement. Littlefield put this in his pocket
with the avowed intention of destroying it
as he could not destroy^it there in the room
with other returning board clerks. left
it at home and the paper ultimately went
into the hands of ex-Gov. Palmer of Illinois,
whence it found its way to the Field com
mittee, and was the means of drawing out
from the witness some of the above, and
much more testimony too volumnous for
changes. These affidavits were prepared be
fore D. M. A. Jewett they -were forgeries,
were never sent in with the returns, and
never appeared till they were used in Wash
ington. Th fictitious names thereunto
affixed were Thomas Brown, Sa Collins
and Sam Carter. The date of the affidavits
was November 14, whereas they were not
gotten up till after December 3. Ldttlefield

Lord knows where.
[New Ulm Review.]
By the St. Paul papers of last Wednesday
we see that Che military men of Wisconsin,
interested in the militia organization of that
State, have held a meeting at Madison and
appointed a committee to draft an address to
the legislature and a bill for presentation
giving the views of the convention. Th
plan proposed is for twenty-four companies
of infantry to be formed into two regiments,
with two independent companies of cavalry
and one of artillery, the State to furnish a
money allowance for uniforms, drill rooms
or armories, and to pay each man the ex
pense of battalion encampments at one dol
lar and fifty cents a day, for five days in
THE FIRST DISCOVERY
of the Vernon frauds was made by Mr. Chas.
Cavanac, who was looking over the returns
in the office of the secretary of state, pend
ing the earlier part of the session of the
Morrison committee here. Th committee
had this fraud placed under their noses, but
whether from a lack of sufficient keenness
of scent to track it home, or from an utter
aversion to following the best clue presented
to them, the Vernon investigation was
dropped though the army of newspaper cor
respondents here had attached proper im
portance to it and telegraphed the nature of
the forgery all over the country.
Littlefield says, even, that Wells told him
he felt uneasy when Morrison's committee
started to investigate him on the Vernon re
turns, and that he wanted to have another
Now as we are interested in the militia or
ganization of this State, and have kept up a
well disciplined and uniformed company for
the last six years, at an individual expense,
we would be pleased to see the military men
of Minnesota take some similar action to
those of Wisconsin.
In 1873, through the indomitable energy
of Mark D. Flower, then adjutant general of
the state, a very efficient militia organization
was established: but the organization being
composed to a large extent, of men who had
to make their living by hard labor, men who
were unable to bear the expense of uniform
ing, hall or armory rent, and the State
through the representatives in the Legisla
ture continuously refusing to vote a small
pecuniary appropriation for the maintenance
of the organization, it soon became an or
ganization that existed only on paper.
We think it would be for the benefit of
the State to keep up a small militia organi
zation, say one regiment of infantry, one
company each of cavalry and artillery, under
a similar law to the one proposed by the
military men of Wisconsin. Th cost of
maintaining such an organization would be
small, and would be money well expended.
Let the military men of Minnesota follow
the exampe of Wisconsin, let there be a
meeting called at St. Paul at once, inviting
the attendance of the military committees of
the Legislature and of every one interested
in the work. A plan of organization can
then be agreed upon, and presented to the
Legislature. If anything is done, it must
be done at once.
A Chinese Weddiny in Necada.
[Virginia City, (Nev.) Enterprise, January 12.)
Evening before last a curious wedding
ceremony was performed in this city by
means of which a Chinese couple were made
one. The maniage took place at the resi
dence of Mr. Lannan. The bridegroom was
Ah Wan and the bride Nan Ying. The Kev.
Father McGrath, assisted by a Chinese inter
preter, performed the ceremony. Ah Wan
had some doubts regarding the holding pow
ers of the 'Melican maniage ceremony, he
having doubtless observed that a thing called
divorce frequently enabled the woman to
take an unceremonious leave of her husband
and openly defy him, with all the powers of
the law on her side. was, therefore, un
willing to trust to the 'Melican ceremony
'straight*" wanted the big Chinese god,
Hin, invoked during the business as well as
the American God and any other gods that
a woman would be likely to be afraid of.
He had just paid $40 in good American
gold com for the beloved, and he wanted the
bonds such as would hold her like noods of
It was for the purpose of bringing in his
Chinese god, Hin, that he had brought the
interpreter with him. Th interpreter ex
plained the Chinese part of the business to
Father McGrath as well as he could, when
that gentleman concluded to make a mixture
of the two ceremonies.
"Stun up here, the pair of yeh," com
manded the reverend Irishman.
"Join yer hands," said his reveience.
The pair clasped their own hands as
though in prayer.
Father McGrath stamped his foot and said
to the interpreter: "Let the man take hold
of the woman's hand."
"Ah Wan, tokee sues Nau Ying shu mi,
cried the interpreter.
The man then took a good strong grip on
the woman's wrist, and Father McGrath con
cluded that he could finish the ceremony in
pigon English without the assistance of the
Said he: "Ah Wan, you likee this one
iece woman much good.''"'
"You bet," said Ah Wan.
"Nan Ying, jou likee this one piecee man,

"Me likee this piecee," said the gentle Nan

"Ah Wan," said Father McGrath, "you

piecee, do ye moind that!"
"No more catchee," said Ah Wan.
"Nan Ying, you catchee no more man but
de ye onderstand?"
"Niso tan-tan fl sum he pol tzinV" chipped
in the interpreter.
"Mi ton we," said Nan Ying.
"She say all rightee," explained the inter

"His Hin, my too, tsin chow toy!" yelled
the interpreter as he let off a bunch of fire

coughing the smoke of the crackers out of
"Hin, Hin, my toy!" cried the interpreter
and all hands as they lighted some colored
papers at the bunch of spitting crackers.
"Hin, Hin, my toj!" shouted Father Mc
Grath, "and if that don't make yer man and
wife yer a pair o" tough cases."
Several Americansladies and gentlemen
witnessed this mixed ceremony. After it
was over the husband told those present of
the difnculties of his courtship, saying that
the man who owned the bride had insisted
upon having $600 for her. but he finally got
her for ^400. seemed to think he had
made a great bargin. But when a gentleman
present explained that, had he married the
woman, American law would have given her
to him without his paying a cent, Ah Wa
become "wan," indeed. He was almost mad
enough to bite himself, and he looked at the
woman as though he felt that he had been
cheated after all.
