MONTREAL, NOV. 29.Tbe streets, which a
light frost has made passable, are crowde
with citizens and strangers. The decora
tions are magnificent. Th9 public buildings
-wiiI be brilliantly illuminated this evening
and stores and residences will have tasteful
transparencies -with appropriate mottoes.
Although the vice-regal train was not ex
pected until 1 o'clock, holders of tickets
giving admission to the railroad depot were
taking their places at 13. As early as 11:30
the route of procession was densely packed,
the people growing in enthusiasm with the
approach of the hour when the new governor
general and Princess Louise would arrive.
At the appointed time the vice-regal train
swept into the Bona Venture depot, where
was assembled tho elite of the city to the
number of between three and four thousand,
who cordially cheered the governor-general
and princess as they proceeded to the throne
at the east end of the building, and in front
of which were assembled the members of the
corporation in full dress and wearing
rosettes, with the mayor in the scarlet robes
of b^s office at the head.
As the governor general and princess ap
proached the throne they were met by his
worship, the mayor, who presented the prin
cess with a magnificent bouquet. Their excel
lencies immediately ascended tbe throne,
when the it ayor read the following address
of the corporation:
To Ris Excellency, the most Honorable Mar
Quis of Lome, etc., etc.
H-ay it please your excellency, it is with feel-
ITIRS of unalloyed pleasure and pride that we,
tho mayor and aldermen of the city of Mon
treal, welcome yonr excellency and her royal
highness, Princess Louise, in our midst, and
we avail ourselves of this early opportunity to
express to her royal majesty the queen, our
deep sense of gratitude at this distinguished
honor she has confeced upon us in selecting
your excellency to preside over the political
destinies of the Dominion. From your excel
lency's pergonal fame, which has long since
reached our shores, wc are proud to anticipate
many benefits which must ultimately be
reaped from your administration. We confi
dent ly hone yonr excellency will not fail in the
course of the hij duties you are about to en
ter upon, to sec how universal are the respect
and loyulty entertained toward our beloved
queen by all the inhabitants of the Dominion.
"Your excellency's noble predecessor, the Earl of
Dufferin, has no doubt carried home with ni
ample proofs of the profound love Canada
beats to the mother country and to her illus
trious sovereign and in aiign rat or.
Your excellency's government, which we have
the honor to celebrate on this auspicions day
in the com mer ial metropolis of the Dominion,
is hailed by us as a special. favor bestowed on
its inhabitants. May who presides over the
destinies of the world have your excellency's
and your beloved consort. Her Royal High
ness, Princess Louise, in Hi holy keeping and
bestow upon your excellency's administration
all the blessings which from innermost depths
of our hearts we call on you both, and may the
blessings also conduce to the progress, welfare,
and happiness of the Dominion of Canada.
We pray your excellency and Her Royal High
ness. Princess Louise, to accept our hearty wel
come and our feelings of profound respect and
devotion. [SignedJ J. BEANDIIY,
CHARL ES GLACKJIEYEB, Mayor.
To this address the marquis replied as fol
Mr. Mayor and Gentlemen of our Qneen:
I ask you to accept our thanks for your loyal
and eloquent address, and I need hardly say
with what pleasure her royal highness and my
self have listened to the courteous expressions
with which we are now greeted, and for this
mo st hearty and cordial welcome. W consid
er ourselves fortunate that so soon after our
arrival in the Dominion we have an
opportunity of passing this great city, and
while hailing for a short time within its walls,
to make the acquaintance of some of the
notable events a*nd some of the communi ty
which represents so large and important a part
of the population and industry. Your beauti
ful city sits like a queen enthroned by the
great river whose waters glide past her, and in
homage bring to her feet with her summ er
breezes the wealth of the world.
It is the city of this continent, perhaps, beat
known to the dwellers in the old country, for
it is not only famous for the energy, activity
and prosperity of its citizens, but it is here
that, the gigantic undertaking of the Victoria i
bridge has been siicccssi ulJy carried out, ard
the traveler in crossing the mighty stream feels,
as he is borne high above it, through this vast
cavern, that this viaduct is a worthy approach
to your great emporium of commerce. It iron
girders and massive frame are worthy of the
gigantic natural features around it, and it
stands spanning the flowing sea as firm and
strong as the sentiments of loyalty fo^ her
whose name it bears, and which unite
in m'.re enduring bonds than any forged from
the products of the quarry or mine of the peo
ple of this empire. I seems but a short time
ago that his royal highness, the Prince of
Wales, s'rnck the last rivet I yonder wonder
ful structure, and yet what stages have been
made in the progress of this country since that
day. Every year strikes a new rivet and
clinches with steadfast hand that mighty work,
that enduring fabric, the prosperity of the
Dominion. Long may your progress i the
beautiful arts and industries continue, and far
be the day on which you may point to any
marks but 1 those which tell of well earned
results of indomitable energy and determined
The people of this country may bo well as
sured that tho Earl of Dufferin has carried
home with him ample proofs of the profound
lovra Cifnada bears for the mother country, and
these assurances have been conveyed by him
personally to her majesty. We wish in answer
ing yonr address to acknowledge the extreme
loyalty exhibited by the French population as
well as the populations of the maritime prov
inces through whose country we have, during
the last two days, traveled, and to thank them
over again, as wo have opportunity this
morning, for the kindness shown towards us
personally. This scene, the magnificent recep
tion of your great city, we shall ever remember
with pride and gratitude.
In reading the address, the marquis em
phasized those parts of a complimentary
character, and frequently evoked loud cheers.
At the conclusion of the speech the mayor
presented the members of the corporation,
with the two chief officers of the city, the
clerk and recorder, all of whom paid their
respects to the marquis and princess. The
only additional presentation was that of
B'shop Fabre, who was cordially "recaived by
their excellencies. At 1 o'clock the doors
were opened find the vice royal party left the
dais and passed out through files of soldiers,
who were drawn up as a guard of honor.
Carriages being in waiting, the marquis and
princess were ushered into one, and two mil
itary aides taking places in front of the pro
cession, which was headed by the corpora
tion, thtn started, the Montreal troop cav
alry, following tbe carriage of the vice-regal
party. As they emerged from the gate of the
depot the orphans belonging to the Roman
Catholic schools, in the., building opposite,
sang a national anthem.
Bonaventure street, probably the poorest
in point of architscture in the city, was
mado to look gay and attractive by profuse
decorations of flags. There was a dense
mass of people collected on the street, an av
enue for the procession being with difficulty
obtained. As the marquis with the princess
passed the cheering was immense, and was
evidently much appreciated by the happy
pair, as they were exceedingly gracious and
apparently well pleased. In Victoria square.
Randegode street, Beaver hall and Dor
chester street, right to the doors of Windsor
hotel, there was an uninterrupted mass of
people, whilst the windows as well as the
roofs of houses were crowded with shouting
At intervals along the route various regi-2
ments of militia were placed and as the
governor general passed he received a mili
tary salute. When passing Bonaventure
street countless flowers werH poured down
upon the vice-regal party amid loud cheers
of the multitude. This arch, the most at
tractive erected! had battlements painted in
imitation of stone, which contrasted exquis
itely with its wide expanse of green and
gold. Over the centre was emblazoned,
"Welcome," and above it was an illuminated
coat of arms of the city.
Passing into Victoria square the fine
bronze statue of her majesty came into full
view and excited a smile of grateful recogni
tion from both the princess and her husband.
On passing up Beaver hall, where several
Protestant churches are situated, the party
were greeted with the national anthem, first
by the Zion church choir and next by some
600 Sunday school children, who were as
sembled on the platform at St. Andrew's
Presbyterian church. The illustrious visi
tors were deeply touched by this exhibition
of juvenile loyalty. St. Andrew's church
was handsomely decorated with everg reens
and with tbe word "Welcome" in English
and Gaelic. Standing out in bold relief at
the intersection of Dorchester with Beaver
hall, the'Montreal Laorosseclub had impro
vised an arch. A large number of
members of the lacrosse and snow
shoe clubs, dressed in their peculiar
costumes, were clustered on top of the arch,
and added much to its picturesqueness. A
massive and highly artjstic crown in ever
greens was suspended across the street, and
was a conspicuous object on the scene. Along
Dorchester street the crowd became more
tightly packed, until the area around the ho
tel was a living mass. A small but artistic
arch, erected by the Caledonian society close
to the hotel, was handsomely decorated wi'h
flags, and as tho vice-regal party drew nigh,
two Scotch pipers, iu full Highland costume,
appropriately struck up the "Campbells are
Coming," the strains of which, however,
were almost drowned by the multitude.
As the carriage with the august pair drove
up to the hotel a perfect ovation was accord
ed by the people \*ho, in their eagerness
to do honor to the occupants, trenched al
most on rudeness in pressing forward. The,
police arrangements were imperfect at thi-r
point and tbe attempt by the marquis to ad
dress some complimentary words to 'the
military authorities, was interrupted by' the
uproar of the surging crowd. The marquis
and princess alighted from the carriage and
were escorted into the hotel, where they were
shown to their magnificent quarters.
The troops who were on duty, 3,000
in number, consisted of the Prince of Wales
rifles, the Garrison artillery, Engineers, Fifth
and Sixth fusileers, Fifth and Sixth batallion
and Montreal cavalry. As the various regi
ments passed in review before the hotel, the
marquis expressed his admiration of the
fine military bearing and soldierly qualities
of the entire force, which was under the
command of Sir Silby Smith.
After the military display was ended the
crowds began to disperse, but the whole af
ternoon witnessed throngs of holiday people
moving through the streets patiently await
ing the evening illumination.
All the superior court judges, foreign con
suls and members o* the Dominien cabinet
were present during the proceedings in the
depot, but none of them were formally pre
sented. An audience will be given the for
eign consuls to-morrow in theWindsor hotel.
The princess, to-day, wore a black satin
mantle, trimmed with sable, with bonnet to
match. She looked exceeding well, and is
undoubtedly the handsomest of her majesty's
daughters. Lord Lome was in morning
In the Evening.
MONTREAL, NOV. 29.The elements ware
adverse to-nigbt to tho success of the
illumination. The wind was too high for
the gas to bum brilliantly. However the
display was highly creditable to the city, and
speaks well for the loyalty of the inhabitants.
The public buildings were elaborately pre
pared to make a fine display, but only at
intervals, when the wind somewhat subsided,
could the designs be seen in full. The bank
of Montreal was most brilliantly illuminated
over this entrance was a magnificent arch of
jets, with the word "welcome" in Gaelic. The
whole front of the building glittering with
the light, the masonic pillars standing out in
bold relief. The fine new post office was
brilliantly lighted, a crown being in the
center, with the letters "L. L." on either
side. The city fathers have been far from lav
ish in their expenditures on the city hall.
The display was confined to transparencies
of the queen, Marquis of Lome and Princess
Louise. Either side of tho court house was
elaborately lighted up, and the Consolidated
Bank of British North America and the Mer
chants' bank made a fine illumination, and
attracted the attention of the multitudes
promenading the streets. A vast number of
stores as well as private houses were orna
mented with Chinese lanterns in a very pic
turesque manner. The Windsor hotel was
one blaze of light.
A noteworthy incident in the proceedings
to-day occurred during the procession. In
turning into Victoria square the crowd was
so dense and enthusiastic that the horses in
the vice-regal carriage became unmanageble,
when the people had them unharnessed and
drew the carriage with ropes at a rattling
pace the remainder of the journey. This
was a novel proceeding to both the marquis
and his royal consoi t, but they evidently en
joyed the new mode of locomotion.
Between 8 and 9 o'clock the JMarquis"' of.
Lome and Princess Louise took a drive
through the city to witness the illuminations.
On Beaver Hall hill they were met by a fire
men's torchlight procession, recognized, and
loudly cheered. On returning to the hotel
they expressed themselves delighted with the
grand display of the citizens. They were
greatly struck with the decorations of Vic
toria square, which had been filled up with
Chinese lanterns, and presented a most en
The guests began to assemble for the St.
Andrew's ball about 9:30. The governor
general and princess entered the room shortly
after 10 o'clock. They were received with
royal honors, and took their places on the
dais at the west end of the room. The mar
quis selected Lady Macdonald as his partner
in the first set, while the princess gave her
hand to Col. Stevenson, president
of the St. Andrew's society. The
princess was dressed in white silk
and wore a necklace of diamonds. It was
remarked that the ladies attached to her per
son were far more gorgeously attired than
she. Both the marquis and his royal consort
were most gracious to all with whom they
came into contact and seemed to enjoy

[Cincinnati Commercial.] 3 i
A reporter of the Commercial called upon
ex-Secretary Cox, who has come to Cincin
nati to reside, for an expression of big opin
ions on public questions.
"Is there not danger that Congress, wil
plunge into a sectional controversysolid
.South and solid Northto tho neglect of
"There is always danger that most time
will be occupied by topics on which political
feeling is easiest aroused, but I hope that
economic questions have such a hold on the
public interest now that they will maintain
their place in discussion till the popular judg
ment is settled and made irrevocable."
"What will become of the Potter investi
gation, and will the Florida cipher telegrams
be overhauled and opportunity given the ne
gotiators for explanation?"
"I have no intimation what course the
majority of the committee may take, but it
seems plain to me that one of two things
must be done. Either the committee must
stop where it is, make no report at all, and
so confess that its failure to make campaign
capital ends its functions, or it must go not
only into the Florida cipher dispatches, but
into those matters back of the action of re
turning boards which it refused to examine
in the 'rammer."
"Do you regard the Southern policy of the
President as a failure, and believe that the
general or the Republican party interest re
quires a change?"
"Not at all. I have never understood thaj
policy to be anything else than the recog
nition of the fact that the Southern States
were at President Hayes' inauguration in
such fully-restored exercise of the rights of
all the Stales under the constitution, that
the administration could only act in respect
to them in the same way, and under the same
legal forms as control its relations to the
Northern States. Whatever-hope there may
have been that those things regarded as con
ciliatory should produce any effect, was
based on the probability that the Republi
cans in Congress would share the President's
wish. It was evident from the meeting of the
Forty-fifth Congress that the party leaders
wore determined that the hope should fail,
and it therefore failed, of course. With its
failure came a necessary postponement for
an indefinite time of the division of the
Southern whites into two parties, which
would be the only salvation from a rule of
intimidation and ballot-box stuffiing there.
It sounds absurb to anyone who has been
even a little behind the scenes to speak of
that as the President's failure."
"Have you been thinking of the next Re
publican candidate for the Presidency, and
found a man who would fill the office ac
cording to the rules of civil service reform?"
"It is too early to speculate on that sub
ject but if the R. publicans are looking
about for a representative party man who
embodies the best elements of character,
trustworthiness and ability, they have, in the
natural order of succession, a man who ought
to be acceptable. I mean, of course, the
Vice President, Mr. Wheeler."
The High Circles of Philadelphia Society
Intensely Agitated Over a Suit at X.aw
I Philadelphia Special to Chicago Tribune
Social and political circles have been all
agog over a suit just entered in the United
States district court of this city by a young
lawyer, Frank F. Brightly, a son of
Frederick C. Brightly, editor of "Pnrdon's
Digest," and one of the ablest lawyers of the
city bar. He married, some time ago, a
danghter of William B. Mann, prothonotary
of the court of common plea3 and ex-dis
trict-attorney, and has lived with his father
in-law and occupied an office with him. The
latter is one of the most prominent poli
ticians in the city, and lives in an elegant
mansion on Girard avenue. A few weeks
ago young Brightly left the house of hia
father-in-law, and a few days ago a suit was
entered in the United States district court by
his father and Pierce Archer as attorneysa
plea of trespass vie et armisin which

1, in this city, the said defendant "with
force and arms assaulted and ill-treated
Mary Caroline Howard, then and still
being the wife of said plaintiff, and then
and there carnally debauched and knew her."
A repetition of the offense is charged at New
port on tho 17th of July, and between the
6th and 21st of the same month. The chuge
is then made general that the assault was re
peated at sundry and divers times and places,
until the commencement of the suit- and,
lastly, that he "unlawfully and unj istly
kissed and embraced her, the said wife of the
said plaintiff, and undermined and destroyed
the love which theretofore she had enter
tained for the said plaintiff, and then and
thsre unlawfully and unjustly persuaded,
procured, seduced, and enticed her, the said
wife of the said plaintiff, to leave him, the
said plaintiff, and to live apart from him, to
wit, at the couuty aforesaid, on Sept. 8, 1878,
and since." Every effort has been made to
keep the matter quiet, and this is the first

Mystery Still Unsolved.
We have no definite information to give
this week relativo to the mysterious disap
pearance of Nicholas Poncelet, who has been
absent from his home near Hokab nearly
three weeks. There was no truth in the
report published last week to the effect that
his body had been found. Three brothers of
the missing man are making a diligent search
and offer $2 for the recovery of his body. A
most careful search has been made between
La Crescent and Hokah, but no trace has been
discovered. The brothers, as yet. have been
unable to find the Indians whose statement
that they had found the body buried in the
mud with the hands protruding, gave rise to
rumor which caused the report to be pub
lished last week. A tramp by the name of
John Evendorf was arrested at Hokah last
Friday on. suspicion of being the murderer.
The prisoner was taken before Justice
Keeler, and when asked if guilty, he an
swered no, and denied knowing anything as
to the fwhereabouts of the body. Evendorf
was brought to this place and lodged in the
county jail to await examination, which takt-a
place to-morrow (Friday). The prisoner is
said to be a hard looking fellow and claims
to be about 33 years of age. At present he
is obliged to go on crutches, as he is suffering
from the wound made by a pistol ball that
entered his left leg. This he claims to have
been caused by the accidental discharge of a
revolver, but his story about the whole mat
ter is doubted.

POOR LO'S FATE.
Gen, Sherman Pronounces His Xpse Dixit
The Indians 3ttist Be Governed by the
[Washington Special (Nov. 22) to Chicago
Gen. Sherman, in an interview, has the
following to say upon the subject of the
transfer of the Indian bureau to the war de
partment, about which there promises to be
sucu a bitter fight this winter: "Such a
transfer would entail a great deal of extra
responsibility and care on the ar
my, and consequently it is not
desired. The whole matter, how
ever, rests on this propositioneither the
Indian bnreau must come to the war depart
ment or the army must be turned over to
the interior department to protect the In
dian bureau. The protection of this bureau
is not the sole duty of the army, as is claim
ed by the interior. Such protection is sim
ply an incidental duty of the army. The
present plan of operation is a costly one.
Here we bad built Fort Sill, at an expense of
about 10,000, to keep the Kiowas quiet and
permit Indiau agents to unmolestedly draw
their salaries, when the Indians were re
moved, and now it is desired to move the
fort also. It is not so easy to take up a fott
and plant it here and there at the whims of
any set of men. It is, besides, a costly ex
periment, and may be said to be
a plan to cost the war depart
ment a hundred thousand dollars worth of
property in order that an Indian office agent
may peacefully and safely draw his salary of
$1,200 or $1,800 a year. This .fort Sill
business is only one instance of the policy
which is likely to involve a loss to the govj
eminent of millions, not to speak of its ef
fect in making army officers the peripatetic
police of civil Indian agents, who are in
many cases selected for no other reason than
that of political expediency. I say ponce.
Indian warefare is peculiar. You cannot
head off these Indians on the plains with any
more certainty than you can find and catch
a particular vessel on the high seas. The
Indian office practices its peculiar policy on
the Indian, and when he indulges in an
outbreak it begs the army to protect it. Af
ter the army, at the sacrifice of life and
money, restores peace, and puts the Indian
back* on his reservation, the question is
naturally put to the Indian agent: What
are you going to do now?' and his answer is:
'I want you to stay around here for awhile
and protect me.' This the army does till,
after a season, the Indian seems quiet, the
troops leave, and the red men break out
again, when the play must ba re-enacted.
The Indian office cannot qpntrol the Indians
the army can. One has not the power the
The Programme of the Treasury Depart-
mentCoin on Uund.
I Washington Special (Nov. 25) to Chicago
There certainly will be no trouble for the
business community outside of New York
to obtain all the silver they want for cus
toms purposes. Arrangements will bo made
to furnish silver dollars to anybody through
the mints free of cost of transportation.
They can be obtained at any sub-treasury or
government depository. Silver certificates
can also be obtained, and greenbacks
will be received for customs, so that
the government will maintain all
dollars at par throughout the coun
try. Besides, said a treasury official, the
coin necessities of the government for re
sumption purposes are not as great as they
are generally supposed. There are now nom
inally outstanding $346,600,000 greenbacks.
To meet this the government has in its'
vaults of coin absolutely available, deducting
all dues to private parties, $140,000,000.
There are also under control of the govern
ment at its depositories, which cannot be
presented for redemption, about $100,000,-
000 in greenbacks. The smallest estimate
of the amount of greenbacks lost and
will not be presented is 20,000,000,
making a total of $260,000,000. This leaves
the total sum to be provided for, not already
covered. by the government, $86,000,000 in
greenbacks. There is no probabilttv that
the $140,000,000 coin on hand will be ex
hausted, much less that there will be any ue
cessi.y to provide for the $86,000,000 not
now covered by coin in the treasury. Sup
pose that every inhabitant in the United
States for his own u.se retains $ 2 legal ten

made upon the treasury for the ramaining

A Review of the Insane Asylum.
To the Editor of the Globe.
ST. PAUL, NOV. 28.The committee re
port upon the contract of the insane asylum
has finally been published. It is none of
my business to criticize the details of this
document. Investigations of this character,
although they result, as iu my opinion this
one has, in a satisfactory exoneration of the
general management of this public founda
tion from all charges of any gravity, are wise,
and should be frequent and extensive. They
remind official incumbents that their fidelity
will be exacted.
My object in adverting to this report is to
call attention to its allusions to Dr. Bartlett,
the superintendent. A slight acquaintance
with Dr. Bartlett at once satisfies me, as it
has every one who has had the pleasure of
even casual contact with him, that he is a
thorougly equipped man, not merely expert
in the specialism to which he is devoted, but
adds to this the uncommon qualification of
boing a gentleman. The grade of ability
and acquirements for such a position as
Dr. Bartlett occupies is rare, and would any
where commaud at least double the compen
sation which be receives. That his apart
ments shall be fitted consistently with the
dignity of the State and tho station not
merely proper but necmsary. The public
buildings aud public offices of a State or a
municipality are at once the indicea saidt
os its character and reputation. There is no
fallacy more common or more unhappy and
degrading than the notion that official sala
ries should be low, merely compensatory for
actual work. The skilled man, whether ha
be of a profession, a trade, or other function,
should be paid not solely or mainly for the
actual work he does or can do, but for the
gifts, the preparation of power which he
brings to the business. Many a common
soldier of the German army did more osten
sible work of war than did Bismarck, who in
a momtnt launched the resources of ye irs
with the certainty of mathematics. The
theorem was conceived and the figure drawn
in the cabinet which was demonstrated on
the field. Tho error to which I have alluded
is more common and more unfortunate in
new than it is in old communities.
Salaries and expenditures should be more
lioeral in the former than the latter. The
functions are more exacting and comprehen
sive. What is also little less to be consid
ered, the men are necessarily called earlier
in life to important positionsthey are prac
tically withdrawn from the competing activi
ties, which in this country say to every man
of merit, "Any road, even this simple Ea
tcpfabl road, will lead you to the end of the
world." Our public institutions and our
public men are the legacy which we will
leave to those who come after us. Let us
take heed that they bo of good example.
What I have written is noticeably applicable
to the judiciary. It i3 composed of lawyers
taken from the ranks, men in prime, whose
careers and expectations are really cloistered
from the public pursuits and ambitions so
exciting to the well endowed man. The
public cannot pfford to have unfit men upon
the bench, and fit men can scarcely afford to
accept tbe necessary retirement of the bench.
I have written more than was intended, and
will omit what I had intended upon the
strictures of the report upon Mr. Kerr, which
I think are scarcely warranted. The testi
mony shows uncommon honesty and fidelity.
Acts covering so long an official period, such
a variety of petty subjects of attention and
exposing discrepancies, so slight with com
pensation and assistance, so inedequate,
c: ver Mr. Kerr all over with credit. A book
keeper (which thin office should have) might
be cheaply got, but money cannot buy the
honesty which the revelations of this com
mission conspicuously establish. In the
meantime let us hope that investigations will
not cease, but go forward and embrace all of
our public foundations, and that the conduct
of tho committees will be characterized, as I
believe this one has been in the main, by a
disposition fairly to inquire of and tell us

Better Mail Facilities Needed.
The rapid growth of railroal enterprise is
well illustrated by the fact that nearly five
hundred miles of territory now traversed by

postman. From Algona to Sheldon, from
Glencoe to Montevideo, from Melrose to Al

stage coaches are still carrying the mails
though the cars are running. The trouble
is that there is no appropriation for mail
service by rail to tbe new points, and it is

show an average of one divorce to every
