ST. PAUL, TUESDAY, SEPT. 30, 1881.
After weary weeks of suffering the end
has come. Between ten and eleven o'clock
last night the sad news was flashed from
one end of the land to the other in two
brief but suggestive words,
Better for the President personally if
the bullet had been more immediately
fatal, but for the country the
prolongation of his life has made
preparation for the shock. Preparation,
so far as the human mind can be pre
pared for so terrible an event, but
still shocked at the final blow
and made inexpressibly sad over
the intelligence that the brave fight for
life has ended; that the noble brain no
longer exists; that the great heart lies
pulseless and still.
The death of James A. Garfield plunges
the nation into a deeper degree of mourn
ing than was ever before experienced.
When Lincoln was assassinated, the
country was divided by civil war and al
most a glut of bloodshed had somewhat
blunted the sensibilities relative to any
one person. The fatal bullet which
pierced President Garfield on the second
of July, came like a thunder clap from a
clear sky. Peace and prosperity wert
reigning throughout the land, and tht
chief thought at the time was relative to
the joyous celebration of the nation's
birthday. In a twinkling, all
this was changed. Preparations
for the jubilee ceased and what
ever of political difference or ani
mosity existed, was buried, in the com
mon grief and anxiety. There was no
divided sentiment anywhere in the land.
Prayers for the President's recover)
ascended, regardless of political or religi
ous creeds. Sympathy for his afllicU.
family welled up and overflowed tb<
White House itself. All through the*
dreary weeks the national sentiment hsis
fluctuated between hope and fear, as the
health barometer in the national sick room
went up or down. Blessings for the suf
ferer and execration for the assassin, have
been the one sentiment, not only here,
but throughout the civilized world.
And now, in this hour of national
mourning, one who knew him long and
well, would fain lay a chaplet wreath
upon his pulseless brow, as the last offer
ing which life can render unto death.
Like all mortals, James A. Garfield was
not faultless, but the country has never
produced a man who more closely desired
to follow his convictions of right. Over
a quarter of a century ago, before he had
ever held an office or made a political
speech, other than purely local, the writer
heard him in the pulpit, and
the earnest sincerity there exhibited
made an impress which time
can never efface. It was not the empty
mouthing of an insincere man, but
the manifest utterance of convictions
thoroughly considered and firmly plant
ed. The death of the State Senator from
Portage and Summit counties, Ohio,
brought him unexpectedly into the polit
ical arena. He was with great unanim
ity, called from the pulpit and the school
to political life, and he entered that new
field with the same firm, conscientious
convictions, characteristic of his other
callings. His term of service began
in the memorable winter of seces
sion, and he immediately took ■
prominent place among the public
men of the State. His eloquent utter
ances had given him such a position,
that though he had been scarcely six
weeks in public life when President Lin
coln and family halted at Columbus
en route to the inauguration, he was
chosen master of ceremonies and deliv
ered the leading welcoming address to
the Presideat elect. The legislature was
still in session when Sumpter was at
tacked and Gov. Dennison tendered the
rising young man a Colonel's commis
sion. Having no military education
or experience he naturally shrank
from taking such a command and of
choice accepted a lieutenant colonel's
position. He left the legislature to raise
a regiment, which was speedily accom
plished, and took the field in WesUVir
gmia and Kentucky. His ability was
so marked»that though he had modestly
shrank from assuming command of a reg
iment at the outset, within a month af
ter he was in active service he was placed
in charge of a brigade. From this time
forward his history is a part of the histo
ry of the country and is familiar to all.
Gen. Garfield's impulses have been in
the right direction. His errors have con
sisted in allowing partisanship to over
ride his better judgment. He would, per
haps, have been more than human had he
done otherwise. We all remember how
many times, as the leader of his party in
the House, he commanded the admiration
of his opponents by his eminent display
of fairness and how great the consterna
tion of his own partisans by a display of
tolerance and liberality that shocked
their petty, narrow, minds. The parti
san clamor was sometimes too great
for him to breast, and the errors he com
mitted were when he succumbed to these
But, standing beside the inanimate clay
of the dead statesman, his mistakes ure
swallowed up and forgotten and forgiven.
Though differing politically with a large
portion of his fellow citizens, and, at
times, the numerical majority of Ihe
country being against his party, we can
honor and commend him for the honesty
and sincerity of his convictions and Iris
eminent desire to discharge his public
trusts conscientiously, and, as he be
lieved, for the best interests of the coun
try. He did not belong to the truckling,
time serving class of politicians. He was
an Abolitionist when the cause was un
popular — when men were seeking politi
cal preferment by trimming their sails to
the breeze, he was straightforward and
consistent. He never wavered in his
faith in the perpetuity of the government.
When, after the assassination of Lincoln,
he stood before a howling mob in Wall
street, he largety quieted them by his
"Thank God the government at Washing
ton still lives."
And now in this hour of national sor
row, when strong men are bowed down
with grief, his words ring back with a
talismanic, reassuring peal, which recalls
the fact that however great the national
and personal affliction, the government
of the country is beyond the reach of the
assassin's deadly aim.
A great man has fallen. Great in him
self and his own mental attributes,but still
greater because he was the chosen head
of the nation. He has fallen because he
was placed in the commanding position
he held and not because of any personal
animosity cherished by the assassin. This,
of itself, awakens a special feeling of ten
derness in the breast of every lover of
his country. He was foully murdered
because he stood as the representative
man of all the people, and fifty millions
stand personally bereft by the great
crime. It is pitiable that one despicable
wretch has succeeded in producing such
The aged mother who so proudly wit
nessed the inauguration ceremonies of
her eminent son ; the heroic wife and
nother, who has so faithfully watched
oy the deathbed of her distinguished
huslmnd ; the now fatherless children in
that stricken household, are bearing a
burden of grief which no words
can assuage. But from every home
in all this great country, a sympathy goes
out for the stricken family which lan
guage cannot express. Every home feels
the impress of this affliction upon the
President's family, because it is fully
realized that this son, husband and father
has been torn from his weeping and sor
rowing relatives for no other offense than
that he was the national representative
of every fireside in the land. If it was
possible to lift the great grief from the
sorrowing family of the late President,
millions would volunteer to bear the bur
den. But in their silent grief a world of
tender sympathy will insensibly mingle,
and the tears which flow at Elberon to
day will find trickling responses in Amer
ican homes from ocean to ocean.
Death under such circumstances oblit
erates all political animosities and there
is no break in the ranks of the national
mourners to-day. Political differences
are forgotten and we stand with bowed
heads in the presence of a national ca-
And in closing this imperfect personal
tribute, there seems a singular appropri
ateness in adopting the lines dedicated to
the memory of another President, whe
died at his post of duty while President
Garfield was in his boyhood:
"Follow now, as ye list! The first mournei
Is the nation — whose father ie taken away !
Wife, children, and mother, may moan al
liis knell —
Ife was "lover and friend" to his country
as well !
For the stars on our banner, grown sudden
Let us weep, in our darkness— but weep not
for him !
Xot for him — who, departing, leaves millions
in tears !
Not for him — who has died full of honoi
Not for him — who ascended Fame's ladder

extra session of the legislature to convene

The probabilities are that in addition
o settling the bond question Secretary
Windom will be elected Senator. It is
almost certain that with the accession of
Arthur to the Presidency Mr. Win
dom will resign his cabinet
position and an eastern man will
be selected for the treasury. Under such
circumstances it would be in accordance
with the political luck which has followed
Windom for twenty years, to be again
chosen to tho Senate for the unexpired
term which he resigned to accept a po

The only regret in connection with the
punishment of the worthless wretch who
murdered (he President, is that our civiliza
tion permits of no severer punisoment than
hanging by the neck until his miserable life
is extinct. If he could be drawn and quar
tered or burned at the stake, it would be much
more in accordance with the punishment he
"Indian Politics" will probably never
cease to present curious phases as long as the
red men are dependent wards of any depart
ment of the government. There was one
rather interesting manifestation of its pecu
liaralities yesterday at Fort Snelling when a
large delegation of Yanktonian Sioux, from
Crow Creek agency, appealed to Gen. Terry to
use his influence to prevent Capt. Dougher
ty, their acting agent, from being
superceeded by Mr. George H. Spencer, of
this city, an eminently fit person, who was
some time ago commissioned as agent and
was lately ordered to duty Oct. 1, These In
dians are doubtless mainly animated by com
mendable gratitude to Capt. Dougherty, who
is said to have been a faithful and quite suc
cessful agent; but it is also presumable
that they are somewhat influenced by a
feast the Captain recently served to them,
probably as a token of his friendliness and
sympathy, and it is evident that somebody
has prompted the Indians to make foolish
threats of resistence. It cannot be suspected
that Capt. Dougherty has favored or known
of such promptings; though if he was a civil
ian agent he might be called to account for per
mitting these Indians to waste the earnings
of their band on a long and useless journey.
Indian politics" are the occupation of a queer
variety of hangers-on about the agencies, and
some of these are to be credited with the
threat uttered yesterday by White Ghost.
Gen. Terry, so for as he acts in the matter,
simply treats his unexpected guests with
proper courtesy, and seeks to make the best
U6e he may of the opportunity of advancing
the interests of the Indians and the government.
New Jersey has a law which requires
the trial and punishment for murder to
take place in that State if the victim dies
there, no matter where the crime was
committed. Guiteau will now be tried
in New Jersey, and, fortunately, hanging
is not played out in that State.
The call for the Democratic State con
vention appears elsewhere. Its issuance
was ordered by the committee a week or
more ago, and the delay in its appearance
has been owing to the illness of the chair

Gen. John S. Gibbon, colonel of the Seventh
infantry, who has been • absent for several
weeks attending to the settlement of certain

of the Nez Percez war, has returned to" his

clares that he had a pleasant time. Every

among the rest he brings from this journey
a label, bearing the compliments of a Mr.
Wood, of Idaho, who served in' the brigade,
and being* unable to meet his old general, sent
a substitute done up in glass. If the general
isn't proud of the warm regard in which he
is held by the "boys" of 1862- 63, who served
under him, he's certainly not indifferent to it.

AN INDIAN COUNCIL.
Gen. Terry Visited at Fort Saelliine by a
Large Delegation of Crow Creek In
dians Protesting^ Against the Retire
ment of their Acting Agent, Capt.
Dongherty— An Indian Speech— The
Council to be Continued To-Day with
Gen. Slbley and George Spencer in At
Gen. Terry, commanding the millitary de
partment of Dakota, was somewnat surprised
Sunday by the arrival at Fort Snelling .where
he has his headquarters, of a considerable
group of Indians who desiered a council with
him, it was represented, to ask his interces
sion in a matter of great importance to themf
The Indians, about a score in number, are
from the Crow Creek reservation, on the Mis
souri, in Dakota, and have come to Gen. Terry
to ask him to present to the government their
objections to the retirement of Capt. Wm. E.
Dougherty, first infantry, who has been act
ing agent at Crow Creek for two or three
years, and is about to be superceded by Geo.
H. Spencer, Esq., of this city, who has been
appointed agent and holds one of the last few
commissions which were signed by President
Garfield. Gen. Terry, in consideration of the
fact that these Indians had come a long jour
ney, and felt themselves to be representatives
of their people, could not decline to meet
them, and, having met them, will, of course,
report what was said to his military superiors.
His position in the matter is much like that
of the governor of the state, to whom Indian
delegations are sometimes sent, but who can
not directly act in the matters they present or
manifest his good will further than by listen
ing and promising to convey what It is said
to those who can act.
The council was appointed for 11 a. m. and
was held in the presence of a number of
officers stationed at the fort, ladies
residents and visitors at the fort, re
porters, a few Indians from Mendota,
and Lake Walker, of Lower Brule agency, and
Dan Faribault, of Minnesota, who were wit
nesses for the Indian delegation as to the cor
rectness of the interpreter. The interpreter
was Mark Wells, sonof James Wells, the old
settler of Red Wing and Wabashaw, who was
killed by ludians in the Spirii Lake massacre.
The principals of the party were not extrava
gantly got up in costume, though all did
honor to the occasion by more or less of or
namental paint and feathers. One young
brave, said to be un efficient policeman at
Crow Creek and an adept at using a whip on
refractory reds, was noticeable for wearing a
good buckskin coat and a profusion of yellow
ochre to match. Another of the delegation
was distinguished by a brilliant pair of epau
lets and blue coat and brass buttons. The par
ty was accompanied by "Don't Know How,"
a successful trader and Indian who does know
how to do business. The leaders of the (le
gation are White Ghost, Crow Man, Dog
Back, Slit and Middle Tent.
The council being opened at 11 a. m. yester
day, Gen. Terry inquired who would speak
for the party, whereupon Mr. Wells intro
duced White Ghost as head chief of the Yank
tonnais, and in explanation to the general,
stated the Yanktonnais Sioux are concentrat
ing at Crow Creek, where there are now, he
said, about 1,200 resident Indians, In sub
stance White Ghost spoke as follows:
"My friend, we have come to see you on
important business. Since I have been at,
Crow Creek I have had three different agents
who were bad men and misbehaved in many
ways; but now I have an army officer for
agent who is a good man. You know, my
friends, when one has a good thing he wants
to keep it. (How! how! in approval from the
Indians.) For that reasep I have appealed to
the Great Father saying I
wasted to keep the present agent; but
have not heard from him; and I have come to
ask you to use all your power in this matter
for us. The army officer has been with us
for three years; he understands us; he is a true
man — and so we don't want him to go away.
(How! how! — sounding curiously like the
•hear! hear!' of an English audience.) I un
derstand the great father has appointed an
other agent. I have, refused to accept him;
my whole tribe refuse it; we don't want it.
Please, my friend, to understand me. If the
great father tries to crowd me and
put there this man whom I
have refused, I will! pick him up
and put him outside my agency, and I hope
you will not interfere. There is another c luse
why I have refused him. He was one of those
who caused the trouble years ago [meaning
the massacre of 1862]. For that reason I don't
want him. The Indians then of Redwood
agency sold their lands and were paid in an
nuities, part cash and some clothing. The
traders made the Indians go in debt to them
and then took all their cash. He was one of
the traders who made that trouble. And I
have another reason for refusing this new
agent. He is chosen by Bishop Hare, and
every agent the bishop has selected was bad —
all bad. (Hear! hear!). The present Chey
enne agent, who was his choice, I understand,
is now under arrest, charged with theft.
There are two Santees here who will not deny
the charges I have brought against this new
"My friend, lam not a wild man. I never
go to war with any one. (Hear ! hear !). lam
always obedient to the great father .and I
hope he will listen to me and grant my wishes.
Now, my friend, the officer who is our agent
has laid the foundation for many works" 1
want him to stay and finish them. (Hear!
hear!) I hear the great father waats him else
where, but I need him more than the great
father does and I want him to stay a while
My friend, after I have seen you I intend to
go down to Bt. Paul to see Mr. Spencer and
talk with him, but we have only
money left to buy two meals.
We used our hide money (obtained
by selling the hides of cattle issued to them
for food) to come here acd it is almost gone.
We cannot afford to go to St. Paul, but would
like to stay here and let him come and
Gen. Terry— Tell them I will see that they
are taken care of while they stay here, and
that I will send for Mr. Spencer to come and
see them. Of course I cannot say he shall
come, but I will ask him to come.
Perhaps he can explain things to them
and satisfy them. Tell them I am
much surprised at what they have
said about Mr. spender, for I have been told
heisa very good man. We will postpone
further counsel on the matter until 11 o'clock
to-morrow, when I think Mr. Spencer will be
here to talk with you."
The Indians expressed their assent to this
arrangement and then Crow Man presented
Gen. Terry a pipe, from the red pipestone
quarry, inlaid with metal, having a fanciful
stem, and with it a curiously worked kinnic
kinnick or tobacco bag.
Yesterday, after the council, Gen. Terry ad
dressed a note to Mr. Spencer, asking him to
come to Fort Bnelling this morning and meet
the Indians at the hour named above, at his
(the general's) office. Mr. Spencer has signi
fied his intention to go, and on a suggestion
coming from Gen. Terry, who is informed
that Mr. Spencer's appointment was recom
mended by him, has invited Gen. Sibley to ac
company him. If the weather is not unfavor
able for the ride Gen. Sibley will probably go,
and assist Mr. Spencer to correct tha errors
into which these Indians have been led.

For an Extra Session of the Legislator*.
Statb of Minnesota, 1
Execdtive Department, >
St. Paul, Sept. 19, 1881. )
Whebeas, The legislature at its last regu
lar session passed "An act for the adjustment
of the Minnesota State Railroad bonds,",based
upon a proposition submitted by the holders
of said bonds. And,
Whereas, The legislature at the same ses
sion also passed an act proposing an amend
ment to the constitution devoting the pro
ceeds [of this Internal Improvement
lands to the payment of
the new bonds authorized to be issued in the
adjustment of said railroad bonds, which is to
be submitted to the people at the approaching
general election; and
Whereas, The supreme court of this state
has declared both the adjustment act aforesaid
and the constitutional amendment of 1860 to
be null and void, thus rendering all oi said leg
islation inoperative; and
Whereas, The said court has decided that
full and final power and authority to previde
for the settlement of said bonds is vested in
the legislature; and
Whereas, More than $2,000,000 of the
whole issue of $2,275,000 of said bonds are
now deposited with the state auditor to be
surrendered for new bonds or cash at fifty
cents on the dollar, an i the state may yet
ava}l itself of the proposition of the bond
holders and thus save more $3,000,000,
provided the settlement be immediately con
Whereas, Most of said bonds will mature
before provision can be made for settlement
by the next regular session of the legislature,
thus placing the state in the position of a
total repudiator of its solemn obligations;
Now, therefore, in order to complete the
proposed adjustment, and firmly believing
that the best interests of the state require the
immediate assembly of the legislature, I,
John S. Pillßbury, governor of the state of
Minnesota, do hereby issue this, my proclama
tion summoning the members of the two
houses of the legislature to convene in extra
session at the capitol in St. Paul, on Tuesday,
the eleventh day of October, A. D. 1881, at 11
o'clock a. m., to take such action as shall
seem requisite to protect the credit and honor
and subserve the welfare of the state.
Given under my hand and the great seal of
the state this lttth day of September, A. D.

The Harwood Failure in Court.
The United States circuit court convened in
special session yesterday morning, Judge Nel
son presiding. After disposing of several
minor issues, the case of G. W. Root and
others, against N. B. Harwood and N. R.
Thompson, sheriff, was called, being an action
in replevin to recover goods in the possession
of Sheriff Thompson, of Hennepin county.
The case is what is known in legal parlance
as a com pound case, the question to be settled
being as to whether fraud entered into the as
signment and the subsequent disposal of the
goods, the interests of a large number of
creditors depending upon the result of the
suit. After some difficulty a jury was se
cured, of the following citizens:
Wm. E. Brimhall, Chas. H. Adams, Henry
Green, Albert Armstrong, J. R. McKennar,
John Goodrich, M. T. Connelly, B. W. Lott,
S. Henry, Lorenzo Hoyt, E. N. Bacon, James
The lawyers in the case are Koon, Merrill &
Keith, of Minneapolis, and Warner & Gilman
for plaintiffs, and Messrs. Cross & Hicks,
Lochren, McNair & Gilflllan for defendants.
The case is on trial.
Suit for $5,000 Damages.
An action for $5,000 damages was com
menced in the district court yesterday, by
William Kenkle against the Chicago, St. Paul.
Minneapolis & Omaha Railroad company, for
personal injuries resulting from an accident.
The complainant alleges that up to August 5,
1881, plaintiff was in the employ of the afore
said company as brakeman; that on the day
named, while engaged in coupling cars, his
right hand was caught and severely injured;
that as a result of the accident the first and
second fingers had to be amputated. Also
that the accident was due to the negligence of
the company in failing to provide suitable
machinery; that the coupling apparatus was
in a defective condition, by reason of which
the accident happened. Whereupon plaintiff
sues for $5,000 damages.
SiniliDC and Cheerful State Officials.
* The State officials wore a satisfied, even a
cheerful aspect yesterday. Engineer Morton
did the business. Early in the morning he
got up fires in the boilers. At first the fire
sputtered and cizzed, and Ihe smoke went
everywhere but where it should, up the chim
neys. But slowly stray i>ufft> of smoke began
to work their way out" through the chimney
tops. Other puffs followed more rapidly un
til it finally became a steady vol
ume. The fires began to blaze
bri&kly, the heat to spread out and circulate
through the pipei and radiators, and send a
genial warmth into every nook and corner of
the buildiDg. And the ttate officers with one
accord cried "Selah," and voted Morton a tin
medal and a leave of absence until this morn
ing at 9 a. m.
