President Garfeld and -Judge Black,
who has recently died, though political
leaders in opposing parties, were for a
long time warm person&l friends. Gea.
Garneld went from the presidency of a
college to the army. He was at that
time prosecuting his legal studies,
having determined to enter the
legal profession, but had
not been admitted to practice. He was
elected to congress while jet in the army
doing active work in the field. He was
admitted to the bar after he took his seat
in congress. Of course he had had .co
opportunity to gain experience in the de
tails of practice. Yet he held himself • out

legal profession, who were members of

A Washington correspondent gives the
following interesting details of the par
-sanal relations existing between Judge
Black and Gen. Garneld:
Trie two were brought together through their
membership of the.Ccmpbellite church. Black
had been wept into the Christian movement
, ■with his father-in-law, Chauncey Forward, under
the strong influence of Alexander Campbell;
which carried away i 60 many cultivated men .
Garfield and Black had both preached, and .the
older man was attracted by qualities in the
younger that made him liked by many others.
. Garneld, on his part, looked up to Judge Black
as to a father. He was the docile pupil of .the
lawyer and statesman during the first years of
his public life. While the war was
raging and in the days of
reconstruction, Garfield often went to Penn
sylvania to seek the advice of the man of whoso
wisdom and patriotism .he then trusted mere
than he did those of any -other whom he knew
familiarly. The strong conservative.bent that
marked Garfield's mind, and that sometimes
aroused the enmity of the smaller {men of his
party, was the result of Judge Black's influence.
At a time when Buchanan's attorney-general and
secretary of state was looked upon by excited
partisans as a "copper-h<»ad," Garfield knew,
him to have been the mainstay of the union in
the crisis before the war, -and a loyal patriot
always. On the other hand, Judge Black loved
Garfield for certain traits. of character and for
the intellectual power that he had.
Judge Black was a strong if not a vin
dictive partisan. 'As Gaciield rose in po
litical power and eminence, Judge Black
took umbrage at some '•
of his alleged acts and in the public prints
commented on his public acts and charac
ter, with especial severity, considering the
personal relations, and the
confiding trust Garfield had
reposed in kirn. This act of Judge
Black put on ecd to all personal relations
between the two men and their families.
Thus does the needless asperity of party
advocacy often sunder the ties of friend
ship, and seperate the veriest friend?.
The Washington correspondent, from
whose letter the foregoing extract is taken,
adds, that notwithstanding the severance
of their personal relations, Judge Black
"always retained an affection for Gar
field," and his published attack on Gar
field "was a cause of regret to Judge Black
the rest of his life."
How unwise and unnecessary on general
principles to let partisan animosity when
there is otherwise no ingredient of person
al ill will, intervene to destroy such warm
personal regard and friendship as
had . long .existed between these
two gentlemen. Yet, on mere
shadowy ipolitical 'questions, on mere tech
nical party considerations, Judge Black as
sumed the responsibility, in the
interests of his partisan fervor, of severing
personal 'relations, alike honorable to him
self and his.f riend, an act that he regretted,
if, as alleged, he afterwards retained affec
tion for Garfield.
But Judge Black was a man of strong
feelings, if not vindictive temperament.
He was, however, a true patriot, loyal to
the government, and did his country in
valuable service as attorney general in
the closing days of Buchanan's adminis
tration, when the threatening storm of re
bellion and civil war was about to burst
upon us. When Buchanan in his weakness
proposed to treat with the commissioners
of South Carolina as the representatives of
an independent power, and to recognize
their assumption of sovereignty, Judge
Black prevented him from making
that stupendous, if not crimi
nal blunder. President Buchanan hadpra
pared a paper to be presented to the "Com
missioners of South Carolina." If that pa
per was presented Black threatened to re
sign. "'Why ?" said the president. "I cannot
remain in the cabinet a moment after that
paper goes to the country, treating with a
state as an independent sovereign govern
Buchanan surrendered the paper into
the hands of Judge Black and asked him
to prepare a paper in reply. This he did,
and saved Buchanan from an open act of
positive disloyalty.
Let the dead jurist and faithful cabinet
minister have due honor for his loyal fidel
ity in the dark hour of his country's peril)
when the fierce clouds of civil war were
hovering over and just ready to burst
upon her.

ture and statecraft opinions m*y justly differ as
to the greatest proficients in poetry and states

Change In the Western Union Office.
There was considerable surprise in busi
ness circles yesterday when it was an
nounced that D. L. Wilson, manager of
the St. Paul office of the Western 'Union,
had been deposed and H. A. Tuttle, former
manager of the Minneapolis office ap
pointed in his stead. It also
transpired that W. M. Talcott, night
chief in the operating room had been sus
pended and George McCann, formerly
night chief at St. Louis, appointed is his
place. As Messrs. Wilson and Talcott had
stood by the Western Union during the late
strike it was supposed they were "solid"
with the company, and hence
the surprise at the sudden
change. Supt. McMiehael and Mr.
Tuttle *?ere both in Minneapolis lset evsa
ing and could not be seen. Messrs. Wil
son and Talcott were found and their
statement was that the ground for the
former's removal was the charge that he
was arbitrary and tyranical to the men
Loth before and since the strike and that
the latter used his position to throw
out the operators who came to the
assistance cf the company and had given
their placee to strikers. They said they
had no chance to explain, but were sum
marily decapitated. Mr. Wilson said he
was managing the office and doing the
work for the company at a salary of $125
per month, but he did not care to make
any complaints, though he would have
been glad to have had a hearing, Mr:
Talcott eaid there were twenty-eight men
in the operating room now (more than
one-half the force) who had not partici
pated in the strike.
Mr. Tuttle, the new manager, has the
reputation of being a competent and
obliging gentleman.

Gratification at the Full Fruition of
His Arduous Labors*
[An earlier telegram from the Gloee repre
sentative with the Villard and St. Paul party at
Chicago appears on the second page.]
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Chicago, Aug. 30.— The St. Paul
committee met the distinguished
German guests in an informal
manner and tendered them their good
offers in escorting them to St. Paul, which
was gladly accepted. They also met
Mr. Villard and eDJoyed a pleasant con
versation with him. No public reception
was tendered the guests this evening, but
to-morrow forenoon the St. Paul commit
tee will meet the guests and join them m a
:our of Chicago to the various points of
interest. The whole party will leave by a
special train over the C. &N. W. road at
7 o'clock to-morrow evening.
The St. Paul committee this evening in
dited the following telegram:
To Herman Greve, St. Paul— Our pro
gramme is arranged as follows: We will
arrive at St. Paul with the distinguished
foreign guests at 10 o'clock Saturday
morning . Carriages will be provided to
convey the guests to the Metropolitan
hotel for needed rest until 1 o'clock in the
afternoon, when dinner will be taken at
Magees. After dinner a drive will then be
had to various points of mtarest about the
city, returning to the cars. We will re
quest that no arrangements be made
for Saturday evening nor for Sunday unless
farther notice is sent by the committee.
The proposed trip to White Bear lake is
necessarily abandoned, because the guests
are already somewhat fatigued with long
travel. It is suggested that forty rooms
be engaged at the Metropolitan hotel tor
Saturday only.
Hon. Hesry Villard, president of the
Northern Pacific railroad, arrived this even
ing and is domiciled at the Palmer house.
He is accompanied by his wife and Miss
Villard and three other children, his en
tire family, who, together with nve ser
vants are assigned to nine capacious rooms
at the hotel. The railway king is travel
ing in truly regal style. He appears in
excellent health and in his usual good
humor, and received the Globe represen
taiive with cordiality. He felt happy, he
said, at the -successful consummation of
his hopes in the great enterprise now per
manently established on a firm basis. The
management had undertaken a gigantic
task, but for himself he disclaimed
any more credit than was
due his associates and friends who had la
bored incessantly to fulfill every public
promise in connection with the work. The
Northern Pacific road was an established
fact, and its experimental 6tages were
passed. It had become a property of
enormous value and would steadily appre
ciate. The recent decline of the stock of
the company was caused by the manipu
tion of unfriendly interests in Wall street,
but the bears had sold thousands of those
short which they never could deliver, and
their day of reckoning would come, and
that soon. The stock is now held in streng
hands and cannot be shaken out by the
flurry in any financial mart of the world.
He was deeply grateful, he added, to St.
Paul and Minneapolis for the grand wel
come which he learned those cities were pre
paring for the distinguished guests who
had been invited to participate in the cer
emonies of the formal opening of the road.
He had many kind remembrances of these
two cities of the golden northwest, and
every gracefnl act on the part of their en
terprising and warm-hearted citizens
seemed more graceful than the last . He
was anxious, he said, for the time to
arrive when he should have fitting op
portunity to gftsa voioe to the feelings of
warmest friendship which were aroused
in his breast at this latest evidence of ap
preciation and kicdness on the part of St.
Paul and .Minneapolis. He shock the
Globe reporter warmly by the hand in a
manner which indicated his sincerity in all
his interviews.
Hon. Carl Schnrz was not feeling in any
mood to talk this evening, and remarked
he had really little, to say. During his life
in Wisconsin he had become mure or less
familiar with the region around about St.
Paul and the Northwest generally ,and dill
felt as he always had .that there was a
great and glorious future before it. He
had gladly accepted President Villard's
invitation to be present at the opening,
and was happy to add his being with
thousands of others; that the president of
the Northern Pacific toad deserved un
stinted praise for the successful accom
plishment of his really gigantic task. The
.career of Mr. Yillari, he said, had been one
of the wonders of this wonderful country,
and he was glad! the tine had arrived
when his labors and skill had been suita
bly requited.

A Captain of a New York Precinct Unable
to Dirchurjje Euffians .on His Scjuad— A
Clubber Finally Jailed to Ay.air the Ac
tion of a Coroner's Inquest on a Citizen
Pounded to Death.
New Yobk, Aug. 30.— Poliea Officer
Maurice McNamara, canting the death of
Jno. Smith by clubbing, only yesterday,
was before the police commissioners
upon charges of cruelly clubbing a re
spectable citizen a few weeks ago. Cap
tain Batty, in command of the preciat to
which McNamara is attached, said.
"I am sorry to say I nave men under
me I would not believe under
oath. They are a shame and disgrace to
the city and if I had poper they would not
remain on the force twenty-four hours.
They reflect upon good men, several .of
whom are ashamed to be known a 9 being
connected with my precinct."
"Why don't you make formal complaints
against them
"I have done this time and again, but
those complaints still lie there. I don't
feel like giving my opinion of the death
of Smith last night, as it would not be ex
actly right, but McNamara is a bad man.
He has a bad record on the force, and his
conduct in arresting Ross Randolph, for
which he was tried yesterday, was simply
outrageous. 1 '
"Why don't you suspend such men pend
ing the investigation of such cases?"
"What good would that do. They would
still receive their pay just the same and be
doing nothing for it."
AlcNamara was arrested while patroling
his beat. When taken into the captain's
oom in the Elizabeth street station he did
not display the least concern, but came in
swinging his club with a defiant air.
"I intend to hold you as a prisoner
pending the examination of witnesses by
the coroner," said Captain Petty.
McNamara was evidently surprised, not
having before been informed why he was
wanted at the station. He leaned over the
table at which his superior ofScer sat, and
in a gruff voice said, "what?" The captain
repeated what he had said and McNamara
replied, "all right," and went up to the
railing and answered the usual questions
put to prisoners and was lodged in jail.

In the last heat of the 2:19 class the

Mike Sheridan Throws a Little Mad From

some Chester More than Divides Female
Tourist Curiosity with the Yellowstone
Falls— Will Strike Livingston Sept. 1.
Camp Aclusox, Yellowstone Canyon, Aug.
28, via Livingstone, Montana, Aug. 30. —
Leaving Yellowstone Lake at 6:25 this
morning, the president's party journeyed
eighteen miles over a splendid trail to this
point. The road was equal to any turn
pike in the states, and on the way the party
halted at the wonderful mud geysers, one
of which is known as the Editor's Hate,
and one as the devil's -cauldron. As the
party looked into the 'first and listened to
the rush and roar of seething water and
mud that eternally boils, but finds no outlet,
it was generally remarked that the place
was properly named.
The canon of the Yellowstone on which
we are now camped surpasses description
in its grandeur. The two falls between
: which we have pitched our camp are equal
in sublimity and beauty to any upon the
continent. Leaping and rushing between
a precipice of red and yellow rock, the
Yellowstone river seems to tear its way
through solid mountains leaving in
its pathway forms of un
couth and lawful majesty -seen
nowhere else mingled with these scenes Gf
nature. We find here, also, the inevitable
tourists, male and female, each of whom
is anxious to see not only the canyon but
the president, and it is wickedly suggested
by 80m.3 of them £hat the eyes of these
lovers of nature are directed more frequent
ly to the latter thaa the former. We will
probably remain here to-morrow, and i
expect to reach the railroad Sept. 1. So
far the trip has been one of unalloyed
pleasure, and all are in the best health.

[Special Telegram to the Globe.
Chicago, Aug. 30. — There was nothing
new or interesting in the market to-day.
Trading was only moderate. There was
no excitement whatever, and prices at the
close do not vary materially from yester
day. None of the old-time bustle on the
approach of settlement day was to be
seen. Business in the wheat pit was slow,
and the range of prices vari ed but slightly
from yesterday. Outside orders were not
numerous and local operators did notmani
fest much of any desire to trade beyond a
very limited extent. The receipts were
larger — 214 cars — and market advices
from abroad were of rather an unfavorable
tenor. The shipping movement was of
only. a moderate character,
and the harters but 55,000
bushels. . Prices fluctuated within a range
of %c and closed the same as on yesterday
Some transactions were made in changing
September into October, but the market
difference did not thus far permit the cash
wheat being placed.
A dull trade and very narrow fluctua
tions were the features in corn. The spec
ulative market ruled quiet again but there
was a good trade in cash, all grades meet
ing with a good shipping movement and
No. 2 also taken on speculative account.
The feeling was steady and prices subject
to only slight fluctuations. The receipts
continue quite free, and foreign advices
indicated a quiet market. The weather
in the west was warmer. The speculative
offerings were not large. The fluctuations
of prices were confined within a range of
I 4 c, and closing figures were the same to
}4<s better than yesterday. There was a
liberal inquiry for rejected for shipment.
The charters were but 96,000 bushels.
In oats the feeling was quiet and easy.
The market opened with a good
demand for cash and August, to cover out
standing contracts. The offerings, how
ever, were fully adequate to the demand,
ani prices receded from the opening quo
tations and the market closed }4@}4 O
lower. Deferred futures quiet, and also
slightly easier. Sample lots in good sup
ply. Sales were slow. Bayers held off,
calculating evident'y on lower prices after
settlements of August contracts have been
effected. Car lots of No. 2, to be deliv
ered to-day or early to-morrow, to deliver
on maturing contracts, sold early at 28% @
28 % c, declined to 28*40, and closed at
28J4C sellers. The short interest now seems
small, and the squeeze accidental.
Rye was steady and firm. There was an
improved shipping demand, and quite an
increase of orders in the market. The
speculative inquiry was fair.
As the arrivals of barley increase,
the offerings by sample become larger,
but there is no barley of account going to
store yet. The demand was light to-day,
and buyers were scattered, sales were slow
and prices easy. Only the better grades
would command bids, and some consign
ments of a low grade could not be Bold.
The tendency of hog product has been
upward, and the close is fairly strong at
$ 12.50 and $ 8 . 50 October for pork and
lard respectively. In this market the day's
business opened with a good showing of
strength. An advance in the ruling prices
for live hogs developed a more confident
feeling, and during the morning sellers
had the best of the movement, which was
characterized by a rather fair advance,
subsequently, however, the feeling weak-,
ened, and as sellers manifested considera
ble desire to realize an easier range of
prices prevailed. Still the day's market
averaged higher than that of yesterday
though the actual advance established was
in manj instances quite limited. The day's
trading was only moderate, and after the
morning sport a quiet time was witnessed.
ConeiderableSeptember property was again
turned over into October. Cash product
was enly moderately active.
Pork was stronger and on the whole 10
(glsc higher than yesterday. Outside
prices, however, were not sustained, and
at the close the improvement indicated
was limited, to ~%H -Wo. The trading was
only moderate, with the greatest activity
early in the day. October and January
were the favorite months with traders.
Lard was correspondingly steady. The
day's prices for this article averaged 7%@
10c higher than on yesterday, and at the
close the advance amounted to 0(ct,1%. In
the future trading September, October and
Kovember were the prominent
months. The business transacted was
only moderate, the last hoar of the session
being particularly quiet. The deliveries
of Saptembor Ist will have to be made
before there will be a-Ey more light on the
future of this market .
The cattis market showed but little
j change from Wednesday so far a3 prices
j were concerned. Business opened slow,
j buyers trying io secure lower prioes, but
trade improved as the forenoon wore away,
and, although th€ supply was pretty liberal,
all the offerings were taken at strong prices.
The receipts incloded some fine cattle, and
the average quality was good, the propor
tion of common stuff and Texans being
lighter thae. usual, though there were lib
eral receipts of westerns. For
some time past there has been quite
an active demand for etockers, and feeders
and prices hare advanced. Bayers are
not paying the advance cheerfully, but this
far the demand has been sufficient to take
all the offerings. There was a full ran on
northern range cattle, and for that class
the market was weaker.
There was an aciive and stronger market
for hogs. The several classes of buyers
deluding the scalpers bought freely, and
1 sales were quick at an advance varying
1 from s@lsc and averaging fully 10c. The
1 receipts were fair and of excellent quality
I and all things considered, it was a very
I satisfactory market. From $3.50 to $4 for
culls prices ranged upward to $5.90 for
extra bacon grades, though few went be
low §4.90 and not many reached a higher
figure than §5;75.

New Yoek, Aug. 30.— 0n the stock ex
change to-day nearly everything favored
the bears, about the only excitement being
caused by a little flurry in Northwestern.
The weather was gloomy, cold and unsea
sonable, with frost in New England, all of
which was decidedly favorable to bear
tactics. Northern Pacifies were very weak
at the opening, and the market was ex
ceedingly feverish in consequence. Lake
Shore and New York Central seemed en
tirely without support. The transactions
centered in Northern Pacifies, Lackawanna
and Lake Shore. Northwestern was sold
down to 120;- by Playback, si ad Like Shore
to l Jb% • At iiifcse prices Bob Eliioc bid
121% for the Northwestern without getting
a share. At the same time Louisville &
Nashville acted tricky and showed a dis
position to run up at every chance.
The transactions in Northern -Pacific
stocks for the first two hours were im
mense, and they were sold by the same
parties who depressed them one or two
weeks ago. Towards noon the market be
came very dull. Every few minutes the
bears would rush in and break something.
First it was Lake Shore, which was put
down in two minutes from 100 to 99; then
it was Oregon; then Northern Pacific, and
then Lackawanna. When Northwestern
began to be sold the cup seemed full.
Reports were circulated that W, H. Van
derbilt was unloading, and that it was
known that the executive committee would
be in session to day and a favorable op
portunity given for a bear story. The
last card the bears played was the an
nouncement of a snow storm
in the west extending . to
Chicago. From this time the market
improved steadily to the close. There is
believed to be a very heavy short interest
in Lake Shore and Northern Pacific. There
is a steady absorption of good dividend
stock for investment on every depression.
Clailin reports a very large fall trade in
dry goods. There was strong buying in
Louisville & Nashville. Woerishoffer was
a large seller of Northern Pacific to-day.
The Boston market was strong. Kidder
Peabody & Co. were paying Atchison at
81^. Atchison closed at 81<*£ bid, 82
asked. The brokers' market closed very
strong. The bears are unable to cover at
a profit to-day. Brady, McClellan & Co.
said sales of Northern Pacific preferred at
69;-,j and Oregon Transcontinental at 59&,
were the disturbing features at the
opening this morning slight improvements
followed these depressions. The Vander
bilts about the same time were raided.
During all these attacks it was noticeable
that there was some quiet baying of the
better class of stocks, and the demand
continued throughout the day. Louis
ville & Nashville was active and strong. A
prominent house purchased 5,000 shares.
The stock became scarce for delivery, as
did Central and Hudson Central of New
Jersey, and Northern Pacific preferred.
About 1 o'clock Lake Shore fell from 122
to 120, which caused somewhat of a flurry
for the moment. The usual 2 per cent,
quarterly dividend was declared
on Northwestern preferred to-day.
The business on some of
our western roads is exceedingly heavy at
the present time. We understand that the
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy have not
only all their own rolling stock in commis
sion can do, but are large borrowers from
some of the stock lines. We can imagine
what business waits them, when later in
the year an immense corn crop will re
quire transportation. The market was
decidedly buoyant at the last. The Van
derbilts were all up to the highest points
of the day and the balance were firm and

Jr., sen of Captain Snow, of the schooner
Alice Ridgeway, says of the publications
regarding the man supposed to be Joseph

mystery at the hen and chickens reef on
Sunday August 12, that their schooner was
heavily loaded and contained four men.
In going out the baj their vessel stood be
tween the hen and chicken and gooseberry
rock about a mile distant. The unfortu
nate was seeE on the rocks
holding <ip both hand 3 and waving
his handkerchief. It was impossible
to reach him, as no small boat could live
in the heavy sea, nnd cvta if a boat could
hate been iaanched, it would be useless, as
the man would have been washed away be
fore he could be reached. Snow emphat
ically denies the story of Masonic signals
being given oa. the reef, as neither his
father cor himself were masons, and would
not know a masonic sign if it were given.
He Bays they promptly reported the mat
ter to a party od board the yacht lolanthe,
and to several others. He expected to
find the cutter in Newport harbor in order
to report to them, but did not find the ves
sel. He has in his possession a letter from
a member of the Sargent family, exonerat
ing him from blame.
