factories have granted the demands of
their men for eight hours and 20 per

all Anarchist methods are most bit

Law and Order Leagae was foimed

'Frank Burr's Atlanta dispatch in
New York IForW: Gen. Lorgstreet
was clad in the full uniform of a Con
federate officii-. Next to Mr. Davis,
the most conspicuous figure of a very
notable event indeed, over and above
all else Gen. Loogetreat's appearance
here illustrates the spirit of this ova
tion to the Confederate ex-Pre'ident.
Ua has been a Republican ever since
tha war, constantly fillirg more or lees
distinguished positions under its dif
ferent national administrations. Ever
since the surrender at Appomattox he
baa been againet tha methods of his
old-time Confederate associates. For
this he has been ostracized by ths
people for which he fought so well and
sacrificed so much. Therefore his ap
pearance to-day at tbe care-many was
the moit significant feature, not only
of iti proceedings, but of the past and
future welcome to M'. Davis.
At Montgomery among the nance!
of the honored Confederate soldiers
which sra read upon flas and em
bUzoned upon mot oes that of James
Loogstreet, or "0!d Pitar," as he was
familiarly known among his soldiers,
did not appear. At every turn I could
hear the oil soldiers, who for the mo
ment had forgotten the animosities
which politics bad bred, ask for Gen.
Locgtreet. But the mansgars had
left li a name out of the long list of
honorad Confederate gonecals every
where dieplayed. Whether this
desire of the veterans to see
their old co-ps conmander or some
other motive diet ite d lis invitation to
this day's event is nut ceitvn. Hewas
here and he was looking almost as he
did when he directed Pickett's fa'eful
charge at Gettysburg, struck Warren
in the Wilderness or threw his bat'ai
ions with irre'istble force against
RoeecransatCDickamauga. He seemed
also to enjoy wearing his ol i uniform
again, and the veteran's eye would
brighten at the cheers of the old eo1
dieis and the roval welcome the cowd
gave him. At first he simply rode in
the procession hie any of the other
dis'ioguiehe'd visitors, but he was the
most s'riking figure present. When ht
arrived at tne grand stand and took

There is much more Jhatis interest
ing and pathetic in Gen. Ltngstreet's
appearance and utterance upon this
occasion. It is the on n-w and sig
nificant phase of all this relcome to
Mr. Davis. Much as Gen.Longstreet
has suffered in a hundrel ways at
the hands of the people for wliom
he fought so ardently he firgot it all
to-day in the common respct for the
civil head of the great revdution, in
which he was a commanier set ond

that he had been shot out of their

aged 70 years, and Mrs. Pell, aged 60
years, with excellent reputations, were
charged before Chief Justice Cameron
with arson, for tha purpose of
securing the insurance tnonev. The
goods were all removed' before
the fire occurred, and af.erward Mis.
Pell circulated the story that the scorm
doors cf the House had been barri
caded, as if for the purpose of destroy
ing the inmates. Letters of warning
were a'so shown which threatened to
bain them out. So many of these
stories were told that suspicions of a
"put up job" were engendered. Their
adopted daughter was aDDroached. and
she fioally confessed and became the
chief witner-s against the pair.

over half an hour in defense of her
self and huebaod. She walked fjebly
to tbe lawyer'a desk and began her
address in a mild tone, but as she pro
ceeded grew warm and animated, and
denounced the Chief of Police and
otbrjf s in strong language. She pleaded
for flnerry, and wept bittirly as she
extolled me merits of her life partner
and told of her love for him. Pell
burst into tears several times when
bit wi!e was pleading.
1 tie jury brought in a verdict of
guilty cgamst the wifo, and not guilty
against the husband. Mrs. Pell was
terribly aflfcetsd by the finding, but
she kiesed her husband, and was then
taken buck to the jii).
Ttie husband was then tried and

rj In Talladega,
Talladega, Ala., May 4. The Ad
vance will contain an article to-morrow
stating that the papers getting up
the Davis editions failed to have the
history of the old Confederate Treas
urer's safe, and the original articles of
confederation as diawn up and signed
by tha members present. The old
safe is now in possession of Mr. Arthur
Bingham.ex State Treasurer. The safe
ia an o'd style one, with clasp and pad
It hts a (ingle vault, with two de
partments inside, and in this vault tbe

sold lh:s one to Marvin A Co. He
afterward bought it from them and
sold it to O, to Stolker, Montgomery,
Ala. Again it was bought by him
from btolker, and remained in his
poesesfiun ever since. When he first
took charge of the Treasurer's office
eorae of the bonds tbe papers are

Dear Sir -I inclose the pamphlet
of which I spoko to you yesterday.
By examining the map von will see
the exact position of the Santa
Carlina Island. ' It ia Isolated and
too far from tbe shore for any ordinary
boat to reach if. My idea is tbat
if the Apaches were put on this is
land, they would require no guards,
and all that would be needed would
be the small steam tender and crew
to run between the island and the
port of Wilmington for .the purpose
of communication and supply. This
would, in my opinion, set the Apache
question at rest forever, would save
the country many valuable bills and
the government millions of money.
The title to the island is
perfect. As near as I can
remember tbe price asked by the
owners as either 13 or tl per acre.
Owing to the location of the island
the climate is as mild and salubrious
as can be - found anywhere in the
world. ShouTd you look with favor
upon my suggestion, aa to the value
of this island for the purpose named,
I shall be glad at any time to go more
into detail with you upon the sub
ject. I am yours, very truly,
JAMES I. FAIR.
Senator Fair, when spoken to upon
the subject, stld that he really be
lieved the Indians would be pleased
with Santa Col i Da after they cot the re,
although they might possibly fuht
against going. The island is situated
in thi Pacific ocean, about
twenty-five miles southwnet of
Los Ange'e?. Tbe climate, ho said,
is deligh'ful end the fishing excellent.
Should this irland be pnrctiased and
the Indians placed thereon, it will for
ever put an end to the annual summer
raids of these Indiana on the unpro-Uc-ied
whitoaattlars and their fuiiiies.
