Ku was born at Red Hook, Duchess county,
K. Y., February 21, 1822, and entered the
naval service as a midshipman trom his
native State May 11, 1839, making his

attached successively to the Brazil station,
to the brig Balnbrldge, to the home squad
ron as acting master, and to the naval
school at Philadelphia, beiug promoted
to passed midshipman July 2rt1845.
He served as chief officer of the United
btates mail steamers Atlantic and Georgia,
1848-51, was commissioned as lieuten
ant in 1854, and resigned from the naval
service that year.
While out of the navy he was active in
the organization of the steam commercial

BEFORE THE WAR.
for a year he was engaged in attempting
to open a transit route across the Isthmus
of Telnuntcpec, and Just before the com
mencement of the dill war he was com
manding the "Quaker City," plying be
tween New l'ork and Havana, whenhewas
appointed consul-general to Cuba by Presi
At the outbreak of hostilities he promptly
volunteered for naval duty, was appointed
lieutenant, and ordered to command the
"Quaker City," that ship having been
turned over to the United States govern
ment. Secretary of State Seward had him
at once returned to Havana to perform
Important services, for which he was
deemed especially qualified, and which, it
Is believed, prevented much aid to the Con
federacy from the Spanish colonies.
At the end of two years, having, under
try trying circumstances, fulfilled the
miction intrusted to him, he resigned the
consul-generalship and accepted a com
mission as commander, which had pre
viously been tendered him by President
In 18G2. while still consul general.
President Lincoln and Secretary Seward
Intrusted him with a delicate diplomatic
mission to thepresident of Mexico. .At this
ttmc the French troops were In possession of
Vera Cruz, and Uie duty was accomplished
after most hazardous circumstances.
In 1863 he commanded the Conemaugh,
South Atlantic Squadron. He participated
In the capture of Fort M orris, and in the at
tacks on Fort Wagner; commanded the Pro
teus, East Gulf Squadron, 18C4-G0, and
was senior naval officer in the attack on
Baint Marks, Florida.
In 1865 and 1660 he commanded the
flagship Hartford, and from 1866 to 1868
the Massachusetts ou the Asiatic station.
After the naval rendezvous In New York, In
which he participated, he received his com
mission as captain December 31, 16G9.and
wasplaced in command of theMlantonomoh,
and had charged theTchnuntepecandNlca
ragua sun eying expedition In 1871-72.
MAPPED OUT THE NEW NAVY.
Subsequently he was urgently requested
fcy the Chinese Emperor, through LI Hung
Chang, to take command of the Chinese
navy and coast defenses, and was made
honorary adviser to the empire.
He declined tliese honors, with their at
tractive emoluments, preferring to remain
In the United States service, but upon his
advice Ll Hung Chang fortiried Port Ar
thur as the chierstrateglcrolnt of the coast
line. On his return home ho was made
president of the Naval Advisory Board,
which designed the first steel cruiser and
mapped out the new Navy.,
Recently his health has rapidly failed,
and, although possessed of glgantlo phy
lque. It has been known for some time that
he could not survive another winter. To
the last bis mind has been unimpaired, and
he has been busy with his memoirs.

JOHN G. NEW TALKS AGAIN

As to tlie Presidency, tlie Center of
tlie Country Should Furnish
Indianapolis, Nov. 7. John C.New, hav
ing made a chance remark Tuesday to the
effect that it Col. Bradley were elected it
would make hint the Republican candidate
for Vice-President, was pressed last night
for an elucidation of bis remarks, and he
said, speaking for none but himself:
"Tlie election of Col. Bradley as Governor
of Kentucky tho first practical break of
the solid South argues the fact that sec
tional lines no longer, as between North and
South, divide the people upon issues that are
of national Importance.
"The Republican party, following the
example of Grant at Appomatox, is de
sirous of having a united country for tho
benefit of the whole country. It Is anxious
to obliterate sectional lines.
"It will now recognize, I believe, in tlie
election of Col. Bradley as Governor of the
State of Henry Clay, the great exponent of
protection, that Republican principles are
pervading tho whole country.
"It would be an exceedingly fitting time
for tlie next Republican convention to nom
inate for Vice-President the first mail who
has been successful In contesting a race ill a
Southern State on Republican principles.
He made his canvass on national ilews of
the tarlfr and of a sound money system
acceptable to the whole country.
"It is also exceedingly fitting, there
fore, that the Republican party, in Its
next campaign, should take up such a man
as W. O. Bradley, who has the confidence
ot his people for Vice-President. This
does not eliminate the candidacy for the
Presidency of any man living north of the
Ohio Ritcr, east or wist of the Mississippi,
or tast of the Alleghenles. The power
of any country depends upon Its material
resources. This country produces every
thing needed for Its existence.
"Within Its boundaries, wo can pro
duce all that a great nation needs from a
statesman to soldiers and warships, but
in the center or the country is its strength.
"Tlie center of population In tlie United
States is" within a few miles, of Indian
apolis, looking over toward the Kentucky
border. The logic of geography, as well as
ot recent events, poluts to the election
of Harrison as President and Bradley as

If startling news from Armenia has

It has been known for some time through
other channels that Secrctury Olncy issued
instructions to Minister Terrell some time
ago to take vigorous measures for the pro
tection of American Christians in the sul
Information of this fact was conveyed
Informally to the representatives or other
powers in Wasuington, the British am
bassador included, and this, it is said,
forms the sole foundation ror rumored
joint Intervention by Great Britain and
the United States.
Mr. Terrell immediately proceeded to
notify the Turkish government that it
would be held responsible for any Injury
to American life and property.
But no new warships have been sent to
the Syrian coast by this government since,
aud It lsstated at tlie Navy Department that
no request to that cfrcct has been received
from the Secretary or State.

Entirely Unexpected Officers 1)U
charteil an Supernumeraries.
Two companies of the District National
Guard are to be disbanded. Two others
are to be consolidated. -
Tbe companies disbanded are B of the
Fourth Battalion and A of the Sixth1:' "
' The companies consolidated are U and
C ot the Third. They "are' to be merged
into A and D of the Third. Copt. Leonard
II. MattlDgly, First Lieut. Arthur I.
Flagg; of Company 11, and Capt. Clarence
V. S.ayer, Company C, will be discharged
The disbandraent of Company B, Fourth
Battalion, was not unexpected. A teacup but
few members were present. The company
itself has been made up of men who had
grievances, and its going to pieces was
expected long ago. It is only due to the
forbearance ot MaJ. Campbell, of the
Fourth, that it has existed as Ion? as it has.
Company A, Sixth Battalion, has been a
source of trouble and annoyance at head
quarters for the past five years. MaJ.
llartlett has complained on numerous occa
sions, and Gen. Ordway told him long ago
to end the entire matter by disbanding the
command. But MaJ. Bartlett is one of the
biggist hearted officers in the brigade, and
he always was ready to give the boys an
other chance. At present the company vir
tually consists ot one lieutenant.
But Uie thunderclap Trom the clear sky
Is the consolidation in the Third Latlalion.
Nooneexpectedlt, audit is only a precursor
of another change.
Some months ago Inspector General Alex
ander was detailed by Gen. Ordway to
thoroughly investigate the condition of the
Third battalion. He wjs engaged in these
duties a long time, aud It was understood
that he recommended radical changes. The
recommendations nave borne fruit.
At camp last June nearly all the com
plaints of misconduct came from this bat
talion. It was whispered at Fort Wash
ington that Gen. Ordway seriously consid
ered placing oneoriusstarrorricers in com
mand. The last night or the camp the other
battalions stood ready to march any com
pany of the Third Into the Fort it there
was an outbreak of deviltry. Thecommand
is largely made up of boys, and trouble
For tliese reasons and on account of other
complaints, MaJ. Alexander began his tour
of inspection. It was a most thorough one.
and the result is now made public. Shortly
arter his report was banded In several other
papers In the city made laughable guesses
at what it contained.
Company B, under command or Capt.
Leonard H. Mattingly, is known as tbe
Lemmon Rifles. The boys are making
great preparations for an entertainment
to be given this month in MeUerott Hall.
Consolidation was the farthest thing from
their thoughts. The news comes to them
In the nature ot a shock;
Company C Is under command of Capt.
Bayer. At present be is on sick leave.
Many complaintB were made about bis com
pany in camp. In tbe light of these events
it seems a good thing that two companies
were transferred to the Third last spring.
Had this not been done the Third would
be out of existence.
GEN. ORDWAY'S VIEWS.
"No more new companies fo rthe guard,"
said Gen. Ordway, when asked the mean
ing ot these changes by a Times repre
sentative. "We have as many now as we
cun take care of. Yes, t he Third and Second
must remain, as two-company battalions
and the Fourth and Sixth as three.
"I have found that a certain number
or men if tbe District belong to the
National Guard. In the past eight years
the average is the same. The only ques
tion I had to decide was the best way in
which to take care of that average. The
formation of new companies became a nuis
ance. When we looked over the enlistment
papers we found thesameold names there.
So the question resolved itself Into the
form just spoken of.
"The next point was whether I should
reduce the number ot tatlallonifand make
each regiment consist of two. Alter study
ing the matter In all its bearings, I con
cluded to ketp each regiment ns it now is.
The three battalions will remain as the
skeletons for rfgimints In time of trouble.
"I think the changes will have a-gcod
effect. It will raise the tone of the guard.
The various companies will fill up 'to
their full strength. We wljl be able to
get nndkeep a lull complement of officers,
and I exject to see a healthy growth."

HEALING OF THE BREACH
Quay and Cameron Are Again Hob
There Had Been Coldness Between
Them for Some Time The Senator
Wants Convention ut Pittsburg.
Senator Quay believes that the choice of
the National Republican Committee for the
place for holding the next national conven
tion will be Pittsburg.
Tlie Senator was In Washington ror a
short time yesterday. He came during tbe
afternoon and left at nigbt ror Florida,
where lie-will remain until Thanksgiving
and iwsstbly longer. He is suffering from
the effects of a heavy cold that refuses to
yield to treatment, and he goes to the
warmer climate In the hope of driving it
out of his system.
"What will the national committee do
when it meets here next month is a ques
tion I cannot positively answer," said
Mr. Quay, "for it appears to be somewhat
divided. It Is understood that San Fran
cisco has seventeen votes pledged to It,
and If that lie trae it would take but a very
few more to give it the prize. I hardly
think, however, that the convention will
go to the Pacific coast; neither do I be
lieve that Chicago will be selected.
"If Pittsburg can show to the committee
that It can take careot tbe crowds that
will be in attendance, Pittsburg will get
the convention. I am sure that tbe com
mittee will be convinced on this score."
He is accompanied on his Southern trip
by Senator Cameron; his sou. Lieutenant
Cirtin Gray. Frank Willing Leach, W. R.
Andrews, John Glcarrandoncor two others.
When it was suggested to Senator Quay
lhat the presence of Senator Cameron In
Lis Florida house party w6uld excite some
comment, he laughing replied: "Yes, I
suppose that some people will say that Don
and I are plotting."
A coldness has existed between these two
Senators- for some time, as the result of a
misunderstanding during the'cBalrmduship"
struggle, and the prediction wasfrecly made
that Quay would be against Cameron when
he comes up ror re-election.
But there has evidently been a healing
or the breach, and this trip will give the
rriends or both Senators a bint that tbe
old relations have been resumed, and that
they must get la line for Cameron when
the time comes.
DAMON AND TYTUIAS.
Senators Quay and Cameron Friends
Again and Go Fishing.
Harrlbburg, Pa., Nov. 7. There was
general surprise In political circles yester
day when It was announced that Senator
Cameron would be one or the party which
left with Senator Quay yesterday for his
retreat in Florida.
A coldness has existed between these two
statesmen for some time, as the result of a
misunderstanding during the chairmanship
struggle, and the prediction was freely
made that Quay would be against Cameron
when he tomes up for re-elect ion.
There has evWently been, a healing of the
breach, and this trip will give the friends
of both Senators a hint that the old re
lations have been resumed. Senator Cameron
came home Tuesday to vote.
NOT IN THE TRUST.
But it Hit; Boston Leather Company Is
Forced to Shut Down.
Boston. Nov. 7. The Fayette Shaw
Leather Company, or this city, sent orders
v,ifrrl.iv nffirnnon In Hie f.inr lifer tan
neries which itcperatesin Wisconsintoshut
down ror sixty days, and take out no
leather or put In no hides during that
The Fayette Shaw tanneries employed
about 500 men at this season or the year,
and the weekly output is 20,000 bides of
hemlock sole leather.
"It is the first time that Mr. Shaw has
been obliged to shut down In flfty-rive
years," said a gentleman well informed
on the subject. "All through the several
panics he has kept the tanneries going,
but now It was Inevitable."
The firm Is not connected with the trust
in any way," he continued, "but It has
closed the tanneries Tor the same reason
the trust was obliged to do so.
"The real cause was the ract that It was
no longer possible to make and sell leather
at the price which the manufacturers want
to pay. Business could not be conducted
with profit on that basis."

Heartrending Scenes at Wreck
of Detroit Journal Building.
DOZENS OF B0DEE3 DUG OUT
Forceof One Hundred Men Engaged lo
tlie Awful Work of Recovery, and
as the Lost Are Discovered Under
the Ma ssof Debris, WaltlngFrlendf
of Lost Ones Cry Out in Agony.
Detroit, Mich.. Nov. 7. The progress ot
the men working on the ruins resulting from
yesterdaj's terrible boiler explosion was
very slow after 2 o'clock this morning, and
from that hour until 6 o'clock only two
more bodies wrre dug out of the debris.
They were those of Adolph 'Scrieber,
aged twenty-five, foreman Killer's bindery,
and John Gordon, aged thirty-two, stereo
typcr, Detroit Journal.
A larger force of men were put on about
7 o'clock, and while the work is necessarily
slow, it Is progressing much more rapidly.
MORE BODIES DUO OUT.
At 9 o'clock the searchers uucovered the
nineteenth body. It was that of Jcnnio
Neabauer, one of Hitler's employes.
Fire minute later Ihe body of Bertha
Weidbuscb was dug out, and at 9:10
o'clock still another girl's ixaly was re
covered. It was badly burned, and was nut
at once recognized.
The cause of yesterday's f rightful catas
trophe was settled beynd all question this
morning, when Ihe workers on the ruins
got down to the boiler. The explosion was
caused by a dry boiler.
By 11 o'clock twenty-five bodies in all
had been taken from under the mass of
debris, and three more had been ac"ded to
the list of Ihe idtntified dead. They were
John E. Breitenbecher, aged tivensy-ilne,
an employe or Hitler's bookbindery; Rosa
Morgan and Kittle Leonard.
Miss Morgan was an employe In Hitter's,
and Mies Leonard an employe of John Da
vis a. Co. The two bodies unidentified at
this hour are those or girls.
The heavy east wall or Uie Journal build
ing proper is considered to be in nn unsafe
condition, and the rire chler has Issued or
ders that the floors or the wrecked build
ing. No. 45, which act as a support to It,
be not disturbed. This will hinder the
work or rescue, as it is under these floors.
it is "believed, tbe majority of the missing
will be found. It is altogether likely that
the Journal building will be condemned
and will have to come down.
One ot the two unidentified bodies, sup
posed to be Uiat of a girl, was identified
by John Koerber shortly after 11 o'clock
as that or bis son John, a boy or seventeen
years of age, who was employed at 1111
lefs. More than 100 men, all who can be used
to advantage, are at work this morning in
the ruins, which are probably yet the
tombof fifteen unfortunate men and women.
They talk as they work, and the crowd
-talks with them. Suddenly a little group
of workers bush and commence to remove
timbers and brick with more care. They
have found the foot of a girl.
Quickly the news travels. The laborers
talk in wbUpers, the drivers cease to urgo
their hordes In loud tones, and the thou
sands of spectators are stilled.
The word is whispered from lip to lip
that No. 25 has been found; that It is tho
body of a girl. The little knot of workers
around her fill baskets with rubtish as
they uncover the body and quickly cover
the mangled and disfigured remains wllh
Out in the crowd, kept back by the police,
a woman cries, "I know It Is my girl; my
GodI Can she be alive?" .
At another point a little boy Is silently
sobbing and murmuring, "My sister, Oh,
The remains are placed on a stretcher
and carried away to the temporary morgue.
As tlie stretcher, borne by four policemen,
turns the corner, the drivers yell at ihelr
horses; the foremen urge the men ou to tbe
awful task of finding another victim; the
sightseeing crowds talk loud again, and
speculate on who will be "No. 26."
No. 26 proved to be tbe body of Ernest
Parkins, a boy of 15, who was employed In
the Journal mailing room. The body was
found Jammed against the unexplodcd
boiler. Shortly after this body was taken
out, two others were uncovered, but at 12
o'clock they bad not been dug out.
Steps are being taken to brace tbe bulg
ing east wall of the Journal building, so
that the work of the rescuers can be ex
pedited. rireman Robert Henderson, of truck No.
6 was precipitated into a pit ten feet deet
while working in the ruins this morning.
He received a bad gash over the eye, and
was in a stunned condition when hauled
out. He was removed to Emergency Hos
