the pastor, the Rev. Mr M. Wamboldt,

with having married a stcond wife be
fore he was ssripturally divorced from
his first wife, end having made many
falsa e 'ate in en is. The church wa,
of courfe, divided on the qu-s-tion,
and each lac ion fought
bitterly to gain their point. The
.scenes during tbo meerina were with-
0 ta piralh'l in the hieto-vofthe
churcli of Chuttanoofia. Whenever
the represent ive cf one fac'ion
would attempt ti speak several would
interrupt him and t her by very bitter
feeling was aroused. Wtiile the ex

citedly mounted a seat and prayed for
peace while a war of words' was being
waged. On the CdbI vote Dr. Waiu
baldt was retained amid loud ap
plause. THE DRILL

' Sir Our pleasant meeting on your

to aidrets ynu on a matter very near
my heart. Eighty-three years of a not
unhappy though eventful life have I
lived. Xn the course of naturo but
a few more can b Plotted to me.
Before I die I would that mine
eyes could see the grand reunion of
my beloved country in the citv where
my dear husband lies tee the vet
erans of the North encamping In amity
where tbey once did in anger, and
those who wore the gray shaking
hands with their fellow countrymen
in the fellowship of a common destiny.
1 cannot but think the meeting rf the
Grand Army of the Republic in Nasu

point in ths complete reconciliation of
the land my husband presided over,
and whose unity is dear to my own
heart. God grant that the veteracs

The Presidential Fl.htaK Frolic at
JLake Haraaae.
Pnospicr House, N. Y., August 19.
The President captured a fix pound
salmon trout today, and the ladies got
badly sunburned. Ths whole party
went over tJ llohle Pond for a day's
fishing, accompanied by Signors Lenti
and Morgan, two fr ends of Dr. Ward.
The President and Mis. Folsom trolled
on one part of the pond under the
guidance of Divid Cronk, who for
three years has guided Mr. Cleveland
in these woods. Mrs. Cleveland and
Dr. Ward were rowfd to another
locality by the guide, Wes'ey Wood.
When the party came together for
lunch a splendid salmon lay beside
the President's pole. Upon a linen
table cloth, spresd upon the grass,
was a lunch of hard . boiled
eggs and sandwiches. Around
it the fhhtrmen gathered, eea'ed
npon the ground and disposed cf their
frugal meal. The two guides busied
themselves over a fire making coffee
and griddle cakes. The afternoon was
spent in trol iog on' Turtle Pond,
which is separated from Hohle Pond
by a mere strip of land. The President
and Mrs Folscm caught three speckled
trout, weighing three pounds and a
half, while Mrs. Cleveland and the
doctor landed a beauty, one pound
and a balf in weight. Toe dis'ance
between Hohle Pond and Sarana:
Lake is one mile, but the Icdits

An officer of the House and a number

One of tbem picked up the supposed

he could detect any ticking in the in

Washington special """khe New
YoikSiar: A rich joke on fe Senate
has just come to light, ifbss bee
the fashion of the Senate Committees
to attempt to discredit the sincerity
and good faith of the President in his
removal or suspension of Republican
officials. They have studiously tried
to make it appear that the President
had made removals for party purposes
only, and in disregard of his avowed
purposes and pledges. In order to
give the suspended officials a "send
off" with a fine cert 1 tic te of character
and diploma of martyrdom, the com
mittees have in numerous cases made
reports and spread tbem npou the
journal of the Senate, reciting, in sub
stance, that the suspended official was
a faithful ooo and was suspended fjr
Solitical reasons, and for no cause re
acting on his character or conduct,
personal or official.
A case has come to light wh'ch has
very much shaken the value of these
indorsements. Away, back in the early
part of Mr. Cleveland's administration
he had appointed one Alonzo P. Sharp
postmaster at McCook, Neb. Sharp
was appointed s a Democrat. But be
followed the bad precedents of too
many K publican officials and was
soon short in bisaccoucts. Thereupon
Mr. Cleveland promptly suspended
him and nominated one Thompson to
succeed him. The papers were sent to
the Senate, ehowimi that Sharp was
short in bis accounts, and was no
longer fit for public trust in a public
office.
With these facts and undisputed
proof of their truth before them, the
Senate comrantee gravely report to
the Senate the followiog, which will
be found in the Congretsional Record of
June 3d, page 5387:
On the 11th day of February, 1888,
the President nominated to the Senate
F. A. Ttioniproo to be postmaster at
McCook. Neb., vice A. P. Sharp, sus
pended daring the rccossof the Senate.
The suspension seems to have been
made for political reasons only, and
the committee has not found anything
in the cae reflecting upon the per
sonal or official character or conduct
of the suspended officer.
So Mr. Sharp, who was kicked out
for a Democratic thief, finds himself
immottlised in the Senato record es a
Republican martyr. No sooner had he
beun proved a rascal who ought to be
turned out than the Republican Sena
tors claimed him as tneir own and
clapped on his brow the martyr's
crown. Although a proved defaulter,
repud'attd by his sureties, the Repub
lican Senators found nothing in his
cane "rtflscting upon his personal or
official character or conduct."
Prof, tiraj. Telephone Patent,
Washicgton special to the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat: Considerable interest
was manifsbted in the weekly list of
patents that were issued today, as
some had positively asserted that the
name of Prof. Gray would be found
thereon as the patentee of the tele
phone. The name was not there,
however, and when Acting Commis
sioner Vance was questioned about it
he expressed entire ignorance, and
(aid that it seemed ti him next to im
possible that a patent on the telephone
can be issued to Gray. He said :
"When a patent is once used it is
final. There is no annulling it, so far
as this office is concerned. Neither
cn a patent for the same thing be is
sued to two persons. There seems to
be a great deal of misunderstanding on
this point."
"How is a man who has been cheated
out of bis patent to have his remedy
unless this office is authorized to cor
rect its own mistakes?"
"His remedy is in the courts. When
I wns in Congress I introduced a bill
making it the duty of the Attorney
General to proceed, in the name of
tLe United States, to annul any patent
that he may feel reasonably satisfied
Las been obtained by fraud. On ac
count of this bill my name was mixed
np with the Pnn-E:ectric matter, and
it wan ea;d that I was in thoir inter
est. There was nothing in the world
farther from the truth. The facts is,
I nevernow anything about the Pan
Electric matter."
"What benefit would it be to Prof.
Gray to have this caveat renewed?"
'None that I can eoe. Why, this
office is exceedingly careful about
even so small a matter as the addition
of the most trifling point to a patent.
Af ;er it has been iesued a raan who
has obtained a patent may ray we
have omitted s ime point. We matte
him trova this very carefully before
we insert the new point. If we did
not do this we would constantly be in
trouble, for a man might go out and
see something that he desires to em
body in his patent and come in here
and insist that he had invented it.1'
"But Col. Casey Young is repotted
as raying that Prcf. Gray's caveat has
been reinstated."
"Col. Young is well posted on the
subject, and ifhe says so he doubtless

can easily be cohered by a new appro

not yet been adopted, although sev
eral euggestions have been made that
the priucipal feature in the stamp
should be a Durham bull. Mr. Miller'
fays he has come to no conclusion,
however, on any feature of the design.
He thinks there will be very little
trouble in potting the law into practi
cal working shape, and coutomplatrs
at present the employment of but few
additional deputy collectors, except
ing at places where there are oleomar
garine manufacturers. He expects
the collec'ois to do all that the law

thkiks the present clerical force in h's

be quite sufficient to enforce tha law.'
His estimate is that it will yield pretty
close to $1,000,000 during the preeeut

more thin $000,000 over ail increased
