A LOYE FEAST AT CHICAGO.
Tue Gatlieilng of Ex-Car oil mi Buzzards.
Washingtgn, June 21.?The gather?
ing of ex-carpet-baggers from South
Carolina at the Chicago Convention par?
took of the nature of a genuine love feast.
Ex-Collector Worthington, of Charles?
ton, delights to tell a story, even though
it be against himself, and the other even
in;? he was describing the flock of buz?
zards with great gusto. Of course he
said there were the members of the dele?
gation, all looking hearty and fat. Cor
bin, Taft, Tom Johnson, Brayton and
the smaller fry, Postmasters Boone and
Whittemore with their crowd of darkies.
Even the disposition of the petty honors
of the Convention brought about a divis?
ion of sentiment, and a lively discussion
was inaugurated!. A parlor in the Sher?
man House wa s secured for the use of
the delegation, and they resolved them?
selves into a caucus, appointed a sergeant
at-arms and balloted for the position of
chairman of the delegation. Deas made
a speech which could be heard all over
the hotel favoring the selection of Bray?
ton for this honor, and bis howls attract?
ed the attention of the guests of the
hotel. Crowds gathered at the door
leading into the room occupied by the
delegation, and many present thought at
one time that it; would be necessary to
invoke the aid of the police to quell an
anticipated riot. Five hours were devo?
ted to the consideration ot the momen?
tous questions effecting the delegation,
and the flight narrowed down to one
between Smalls, who supported Corbin
against Brayton, the latter succeeding as
chairman by voting for himself.
More fan was created by the attitude
of the delegation towards Frank Moses
when he visited cheni at their hotel and
endeavored to be friendly with his old
associates. From their actions it would
never have been supposed that any of
them had ever seen the inside of a jail,
for they endeavored to give the ex-Gov?
ernor of South Carolina the cold shoul?
der after the most approved style. Poor
Frank was badly cut up at such shabby
treatment, and almost wept as be bewail?
ed the actions of his old cronies. Sam
Lee, pitying his situation, gave the ex
Governor a ticket of admission to the
stage of the Convention, which was
promptly disposed of for a cash consider
atioo, and Moses did not again turn up.
Moses looked tbin and feeble, but was as
clean and neat in his person as ever. He
told a sympathizer that the action of his
former friends was the cruelest stab that
he had ever received.
L. Case Carpenter was also on hand,
but from Colorado, and although with
the Elaine men he was not a supporter
of the Plumed Knight. Chamberlain
was expected bat did not come, as he was
among the Independents and could not
be chosen from New York where he is
now located, and his old associates do
uot take much stock in him. Among
others present was Jim Thompson, for?
merly of the Union-Herald; for the Radi?
cals one week, and the Democrats the
next, thus alternating his politics. Nagle
was on hand looking as tat as a pig, but
he seemed grieved that Frank Moses did
not recognize him, especially as he called
to mind the many judgments standing
against him as endorser of the notes of
Ex-Senator Patterson was conspicuous
for his absence and a great many inquir?
ies were made for him.
Comparing notes as to old times and
acquaintances was the favorite pastime of
the gathering, as well as referring to the
fate of old comrades. Wilson Cook
entertained a select circle v> ith a story of
how he scared Leslie at Topeka, Kansas,
some years ago by slapping him on the
back and saying, "You are my prisoner,
sir." Leslie thought Cook had the
necessary papers for him, and he plead
with Cook for mercy with tears in his
eyes. Finally he consented to "set 'em
up," when told that it was only in fun.
Some one referred to ex-Senator Patter?
son's running in the ground a street rail?
road at Baltimore, and leaving the stock?
holders the ties and a yard full of boxes
when he got through. Another had
seen Hardy Solomon selling bread at
Kansas City, and so it went on. "Ob, it
was rieb, I can assure yon;" "it was
good to hear the boys talk," said the ex
' collector.?Special Dispatch to the Sunday
From the Chicago Herald, June 5.
Armed with an order from the sheriff,
a J7cr?Wreporteryesterday presented him?
self at the jail to see "Dr. Warren,"
otherwise ex-Governor Franklin JT.
Moses, of South-Carolina. After a little
waiting he was conducted to "Dr. War?
ren's*' cell. The "Doctor" sat in the door
with a big tin cup of coffee before him.
A slender figure in shirtsleeves; a splen?
did head of silver gray hair, cut with a
"bang" and parted in the middle; an
aristocratic face, a keen blue eye, a large
nose, a gray beard of perhaps two weeks'
growth?otherwise facial and personal
neatness?made up the picture. The
Herald man recognized his victim at the
first glance and extended his hand
through the bars. "Frank, how are
, The ex Governor looked a moment in
bewilderment, and then a pained look
came over.his face. "My G?," he said,
"is this yon ?"
Thirteen years ago the Herald repre?
sentative, then connected with a New
York paper, had represented that journal
at two sessions of the South Carolina
Legislature. Franklin J. Moses at the
first session was Speaker of the Assembly
and the avowed candidate for Governor
to succeed the carpet-bag Governor, R.
K. Scott, of Ohio. Moses was elected
Governor to succeed Scott, and held the
office three years. He was a power in
the South. Young, brilliant, unscrupu?
lous, he wielded a terrible power for
mischief. He was not a carpet-bagger.
He and his father and his grandfather
were born on Palmetto soil. His family
were among the most respected in South
Carolina. They lived at Sumter. Frank,
the son, and afterward the Chief Justice,
the father, joined the carpet-baggers.
The old man tried to do what was right
in the electoral contest of 1876, and in a
measure redeemed himself, but for
Frank, the Governor, who bad consorted
with carpet-bag and negro thieves both
in the State Government and Legislature,
there was no forgiveness. When Hamp?
ton came to be Governor, Moses, the
carpet-baggers and the vultures generally
fled like thieves at the sound of a police?
When "Dr. Warren" had recovered his
surprise at meeting an old South Carolina
acquaintance, his first question was:
"Are you still a newspaper man ?" and
his next imploring words were: "Now
don't make this any worse than it is!"
. The Herald man smiled at the thought
that such a fall could be any worse, but
he promised uot to refer to the "Doctor's"
present troubles. "I only wanted," hi
said; "to know if you were the real and >
genuine Frank Moses?"
"Yes ; here I am," said the ex Gover?
nor. ;<It is a different position from thit
you first saw me in, but don't tiiink too
hard of it. I ain't all bad, nor am I
wholly without hope. I doo't ask any
old friend to trust me. I recognize the
disgrace of it all. I must fight my own
battle, and just now fate seems rather
hard. Now, please don't tear me all to
piece?, will you ?" The tone with which
this was said would move an obelisk from
I its base. The Herald man replied that
he cared nothing for the ex Governor's
troubles in a newspaper sense. He did
want to recall old times and ask after old
acquaintances during the good old days
of pelf and plunder in the Palmetto
State. "What, for instauce, has become
of Governor Scott ?" he asked by way of
starting the conversation.
The "Doctor" looked a minute through
his bars as if engaged in a work of in?
trospection. "Oh, yes; Scott,''he said.
"Well he's down at Napoleon, Ohio.
He got out of that murder scrape by
paying handsomely the widow of his
victim. When he did that the jury
called it an 'accident.' Oh, Scott acted
honorably in tbat as he always did in
everything." "And Cardozo?" pursued
the reporter. "Cardozo is a Spanish
mulatto, and is sharper than chain
lightning. He was convicted of mal?
feasance and bribery, was pardoned by
Hampton, and is now a clerk in the
treasury department at Washington, and
is one of the best clerks there. Been
promoted three or four times. You know
he always was the best accountant we
had there. If ever I wanted a correct
statement of anything I relied on Cardo?
Here the ex-Governor allowed himself
to wander off into retrospect. He
stretched his legs and seemed to forget
his surroundings. "Tell you who I met
the other day," he said, "at the Palmer
House. Dr. Neagle?remember him?
Comptroller, you know, under Scott and
under me. Well, sir, Neagle came up to
me and say3, 'Hello, Governor.' Now
between you and me that was not my
title just then, and I looked at him hard.
Then he says, 'Frank, don't you know
me?' Well, I didn't though Neagle and
I were like brothers years ago. Then he
told me his name, and I almost fell in
his arms. Neagle has changed so nobody
would know him. Grown stout and gray,
and rather decrepid. Tim Hurley?you
remember Tim. Tim has gone to Europe.
Tim was a jolly Irishman who came
down there when I was Speaker, got in?
to the riog and made money. Tim was
going to play it fine. He was going in
for 'home improvements' and to become
a citizen of the soil. He stole through
the lobby and tried to curry favor with
the home people by buying city lots. It
didn't work. Poor Tim. He had a
suburb off Columbia called 'Hurley ville.'
I guess it's been sold for taxes a dozen
times. Tim has gone to Europe. No?
body knows whether he is rich or not,
but I guess he saved enough out of the
general wreck to make himself comforta?
ble. "Remember Parker, the treasurer ?"
"Yes." "Well, Parker is in Philadel?
phia?rich, I believe. He and 'Honest'
John Patterson always trained together.
Patterson is in New York. His lamous
epigram, 'Five years of good stealing yet
in South Carolina/ did not come true.
"Remember John Dennis?" "Yes."
"Well," said tho ex-Governor, "Dennis
is at Yankton, D. T., has a big business
there, and is rich, of course. Cass Car?
penter, the carpet bag editor, is in Den?
ver?be was a sneak," Frank added, with
bitterness. "Old Dick Carpenter, the
Judge; let's see, I don't know where he
is living. I saw him here at the Conven?
tion, but I dodged him," the ex-Gover?
nor said, with a laugh. "Worthiogton,
the old collector at Charleston, is a clerk
iu Washington.- He was here at the
Convention. So is Woodruff? remember
him ??the scoundrel that turned State's
evidence on us all and got into jail him?
self??he is a Washington clerk. "Some?
times," said the ex-Governor, with a
bitter smile, "I think it would have been
better for me if I had gone to Washing?
ton and got a clerkship. People call me
a thief because I was Governor of South
Carolina in a corrupt era, but I want to
say right now that the bulk of the steal?
ing, the horrible crimes in legislation,
the awful corruption and defiance of de?
cency, Which ran South Carolina's debt
to $22,000,000 was before I came into the
Governorship. I had nothing to do with
Scott and Parker and John Patterson and
their New York man, Kimpton. They
were the ones tbat piled the debt up.
I was reckless no doubt. I used to buy
niggers for $2 to do anything I wanted
done when I was Speaker of the Assem?
bly, and I got the money to do it with
from this gang, but bow they were steal?
ing was never revealed to me. I wanted
to Oe Governor. It wsb a pride?a per?
sonal and family pride. I saw there was
but one way?make myself popular with
the niggers. I did it. I flattered some,
associated with others, ont bought a great
many more. It was all wrong, I know.
My life was ruined. I was made an out?
cast. I did not dare even to go back to
Sumter. I had to meet my own father
even in secret. I am now an outcast, a
miserable, wretched jail-bird, but even
with that feeling I can see my errors and
blame nobody but myself. I say?(this
with the old pleading look) don't be too
hard on me, now, will you ?"
"Time's up," said the genial deputy at
this juncture, "and I want my lunch."
The Herald man, had, therefore, to bid
the ex-Governor of South Carolina adieu
for the time.
Ex-Governor Moses, alias "Dr. War?
ren," is in the Chicago jail for obtaining
?25 from one local physician and $17
from another on bogus checks. The two
physicians say that they mean to prose?
cute him to the full extent of the law.
He has been committed for trial and
seems to be utterly friendless. His wife
is in this city, but it is said she and her
family will have nothing to do with him.
A Political Side Issue.
Chicago, June 20.?At the afternoon
session of the American prohibition
convention, a platform was adopted
which declares that the God of the Chris?
tian scriptures is the author of civil gov?
ernment; favors the use of Bibles in
schools; asserts that God requires and
man needs the Sabbath; demands strict
prohibition laws; the withdrawal of all
charters to secret lodges, and that their
oaths be prohibited by law; opposes
prison and imported contract labor;
favors a revision of the patent laws ;
pledges the party to vote for womeu suff?
rage; asserts that the civil equality
granted by the 13th, 14th and 15th
amendments should be extended to the
Indians and Chinamen; that internation?
al differences should be settled by arbi?
tration ; that land and other monopolies
I should be discouraged; that the govern
i ment should furnish a sound curreucy;
that the tariff should be reduced as fast
? as the necessary revenue and vested
j busiuess interests will allow ; that polyg?
amy should at once be suppressed, and
that the Republican party is censurable
for the long neglect of its duty in respect
to this evil, and demands a direct vote
for President and Vice-President of tho
United States. The preamble- adopted
by the National Christian association, in
1875, was also adopted. The convention
then proceeded to a nomination for Pres?
ident of the United States. S. C. Pome
roy, of Kansas, Governor St. John, of
the same State, and Rev. J. Blancbard,
of Illinois, were named. Of the 77 votes
cast, Pomeroy received 72, and the nom?
ination was made unanimous. For Vice
President, J. A. Conant, of Connecticut,
was nominated by acclamation.
? In some sections of Abbeville the
oat cops are good, but upon an average,
they are not abundant. It is thought by
observant citizens that there will be none
of this grain which should be shipped.
It will be required to feed stock and to
seed the ground for another crop. The
price which the merchants will be
enabled to offer will not be an induce- j
ment to sell now. I
THE LATEST COUNTERFEIT,
Glass Dimes That King Like Silver.
"That's no good," said the clerk, in
the presence of a reporter, as he shoved
a 10-cent piece back across the counter
of a Broadway restaurant.
"Yes, it is," said the man, who picked
it up aud again laid it down., ringing it
as he did so.
The man behind the counter picked
the token up, laid one edge of it on the
counter, holding his thumb and fore?
finger on the other and, with a quick
pressure, broke it in two iu a nearly
straight line, which left about two even
halves. The man looked on in stupid
aston'-Lment and picked up one of the
pieces. The broken edge did not look
like glass, but its texture showed readily
that it was friable and not malleable.
"Now I'll show you," said the man, as
be picked up a little hammer and gave
the half lying on the couuter a couple of
quick whacks. It was pulverized as if it
bad been hammered in a mortar, and
showed only bits of brittle, broken sub?
stances, glass-like in all respects except
color. The particles were a dead lead
color, and the still unbroken half showed
a date of 1855, indicating that the coun?
terfeiters bad, on account of its dead
color, decided to take an old instead of a
These coins have been made to weigh
and ring so like silver that it is impos?
sible to tell to what extent they have
been circulated, and doubtless many
have passed through many hands with?
out having created any suspicion. Mar
kera Bros.' who handle enormous quan?
tities of silver of all sorts, said they had
seen two samples. The coins are made
in all grades, and the samples they saw
were both standard dollars. One of the
brokers was trailing a fistful of dollars
from one hand to the other when his eye
caught the milled edge of the coin,
which looked thicker than its predeces?
sors and successors. Picking it out, he
found that the milling was not quite so
distinct as it should be, and the coin had
a dead look, but answered correctly to
the touch. He threw it out aud refused
to take it, returning it to his customer.
A few days afterward a man came in
with a similar coin, ouly that it was al?
ready broken iu two pieces, which fell
apart as the stack of coin rippled over
bis finger ends. The edges looked like
those of a lump of mica, or sheeded isin?
glass, as tbey are found by geological
field hunters. That there was glass in it
be could only guess, and has never met
any one who could suggest a method by
which base metal could Le combined
with glass so as to give a true weight and
the right ring. The glass is evidently
intended to make the ring correct, and
yet it must be thoroughly mixed with
the metal or it could not be broken with
the pressure of a thumb. The secrets of
the counterfeiters are not known to the
smelters nor are they to the glass-work?
ers, and neither can understand how
there can be au amalgamation or fusing.
The bad metal, according to that, must
be some comparatively new discovery.
Glass weighs only one-tenth that of sil?
ver, and no base metals approach the
weight of silver, so that all are puzzled.
?New York Letter.
The Roar For Cleveland.
Washington, June 20.?The feeling
among the Democrats here in favor of
Governor Cleveland is very strong. Not
a few Democratic Congressmen express
the opinion that the Chicago Convention
will be scarcely more thau a formal rati?
fication of the nomination of Cleveland.
Unless something occurs meantime to
check the Cleveland swell, it is believed
that he will be nominated practically by
acclamation, and that the Convention
will complete its work in one day. So
strong is this impression iu the minds of
some that several Senators who had in?
tended going to Chicago, to-day declared
it not worth while to take the trip, sim?
ply to join in one hurrah and then dis?
Georgia, Michigan and Maine have
chosen Cleveland delegations to Chicago,
and even some of those who antagonized
the Governor at the recent New York
Convention have fallen into line for him.
Senator Brown, of Georgia, says it looks
as if Cleveland would be the man.
Georgia has disappointed the Bayard
men. In the estimates of the probable
strength of the Delaware Senator Geor?
gia was counted for a number of votes,
but the Convention, while not instructing
for anybody, clearly indicated a prefer?
ence for Cleveland.
The friends of Bayard and of McDon?
ald also now acknowledge that neither
of them will stand any chance whatever
if the New York delegation shall deter?
mine to support Cleveland. If that del?
egation should refuse to back the Gover?
nor, then it will be a free-for all fight.
Friends of Mr. Morrison now urge
him 6trongly for second place on the
ticket with Cleveland. They say it will
be necessary to have a Union soldier from
the West if Cleveland shall be nominat?
Congressman Theodore Lyman says
that the probable decision of the- Inde?
pendents in Massachusetts will be to vote
the Republican State ticket with the
Democratic electors at the head provided
that the Democratic nominations at
Chicago are acceptable.
The chairman of the Democratic dele?
gation to Chicago from Virginia is re
Sorted this morning a* saying that that
t?te will probably vote for Cleveland.
This would be a gain.
King's Mountain and Cowpens.
A recent visitor to the battlefields of
King's Mountain and the Cowpens, in
South Carolina, reports that the monu?
ments placed there many years ago are
ruined by relic-huuters. The facing of
the Cowpens monument, "Erected by the
Washington Light Infantry of Charles?
ton in 1856," is nearly all gone; the
ground has grown up to forest, and soon
there will be nothing to mark the spot
where one of the most important events
of our Revolutionary history took place.
A monument in honor of Morgan's vic?
tory has been erected by Congress and
the State of South Carolina, assisted by
other States, at Spartanburg, sixteen
miles distant, but this cannot identify
the place where the battle occurred.
On the King's Mountain battlefield there
is a monument, placed there at the time
of the Centennial celebration in October,
1880, which is untouched by the spoilers
as yet, and is likely to be, as it is of
rough granite at the base and of such
size as to repel the inclination to chip off
keepsake pieces, but the Ferguson-Chron?
icle monument, erected where Ferguson,
the British commander, and Chronicle,
Boyd and ether Americans killed in the
battle were buried, is so far destroyed as
to be worthless as a monument. The in?
scription on neither side can be read,
and the face of one side is nearly all of
it hacked off and carried away. Surely
here is a little patriotic work for the
South Carolina Historical Society or the
Washington Light Infantry, or both," to
do in preserving for all lime these two
interesting spots of our Revolutionary
history. No doubt Congress would lend
a helping hand, as it hns in so many sim?
ilar instances? Baltimore Day.
? Cleveland's acknowledged lead for
the Democratic nomination has combined
the friends of all the other candidates in
an attempt to break the popular current
which has set in his favor. New York
congressmen say the reports of disaffec?
tion toward him in their State are gross?
ly exaggerated and ridicule the statement
that he cannot carry New York. By
unprejudiced observers of the situation
he is s. ill regarded ay the probable nomi?
nee, and of his presentation to the con?
vention as New York's candidate no
reasonable doubt is entertained.
The two Logans.
John A. Logan, candidate for Vice
President, professes to be the special
friend and champion of the colored peo?
ple, and the Memphis Appeal has taken
the trouble to hunt up his record. The
result will be somewhat surprising to the
colored voters that be now courls and
flatters, aud the colored man who studies
it will be apt to hesitate before giving
this arch demagogue and time server his
Logan voted in 184S for a constitution?
al provision prohibiting any negro or
mulatto from settling in the Slate of Illi?
nois. He also voted in favor of a con?
stitutional provision to exclude negroes
from the right of suffrage or the right to
hold office. But this is not all. Logan
was a member of the Illinois legislature
in 1853, and as a member of the judicia?
ry committee, he reported the following
If a negro or mulatto, bond or free,
shall hereafter come into this State and
remain ten days with the evident inten?
tion of residing in the same every such
negro or mulatto shall be deemed guilty
of a high misdemeanor, and for the first
offense shall be fined the sum of $50. If
such negro or mulatto shall be found
guilty, and the tine assessed be not paid
forthwith to the justice of the peace
before whom the proceedings were had,
it shall be the duty of said justice to
commit said negro or mulatto to the
custody of the sheriff, or otherwise keep
him, ber or them in custody; and said
justice shall forthwith advertise said
negro or mulatto, and on the day and at
the time and place mentioned in said ad?
vertisement the said justice shall, at pub?
lic auction, proceed to sell said negro or
mulatto to any person or persons, who
will pay such fine and costs for the short?
est time; and said purchaser shall have
the right to compel said negro or mulat?
to to work for and serve out said time.
If said negro or mulatto shall not within
ten days after the expiration of his, her
or their time of service, as aforesaid,
leave the State, he, she or they shall be
liable to a second prosecution, in which
the penalty to be inflicted shall be $100,
and so on for every subsequent offense
the penalty shall be increased $50 over
and above the last penalty.
He drew up this bill; he reported it to
the house, and he advocated it on the
floor. It whs his bill, and it became a
law, and remained a law until 1865.
The records of the Illinois legislature
establish all we have stated. It is there?
in printed that Logan was before the war
the most bitter and unscrupulous enemy
of the colored race that could be found
in the country. He hesitated at nothing.
If a colored man came into the free State
of Illinoisphe wanted him sold into sla?
very if he could not pay a series of
heavy fines. The most cruel and arbitra?
ry measures were the measures he pre?
ferred in the cases of negroes or mulat
toes found in the State. And tlm man
is John A. Logan. It is the same man
tbat is now seeking the votes of colored
men, on the ground tbat he has been
their best and truest friend. The bare
truth is, he is the same Logan at heart
tbat he was in 1853, and if he was in
earnest then he is a hypocrite now. The
printed records of tho Illinois legislature
leave no doubt of his desire at that time
to persecute any colored man that came
within the bounds of the State.
The Corruption Fund.
Washington, June 19.?One mission
of the Republican party has been to teach
the use of money in politics. Dorsey's
new two dollar bills carried Indiana and
elected Garfield. Arthur eulogised
"soap" as the most potent weapon in
political warfare. Jay Hubbell was the
most advanced tactician in this line and
devised the famous death warrant ciicu
lars by which hundreds of thousands of
dollars were wrung from government
employes for the last congressional cam?
paign. It has become the fashion of late
for Republican leaders in Congress to
decry the use of money in elections and
to denounce the good old assessment
plan. Some of them have gone to the
point of denying tbat such extortions
were ever made. More than once this
bare-faced assertion has fallen from Re?
publican Congressmen on the floor of
the house. The old blackmail methods
have been fully exposed and abandoned
but it must not be supposed on this ac?
count that the Republicans will not have
an ample campaign fund. They are
compelled to bestir themselves with
unusual vigor because most of the liberal
campaign contributors were wedded to
Arthur's cause and are offended at
Blaine's nomination. The sources which
responded most liberally in 38SO cannot
be relied on this year. Wall street is
averse to Blaine. Gould may help him
out, but not to the extent be aided Gar
field when he gave $100,000 and arranged
for the appointment of Stanley Matthews
to the supreme court. The horde of
officeholders is to be depended on for the
bulk of the fund for this campaign. The
Blaine clubs which are being organized
all over the country are to act as collect
ing societies. Circulars are now being
prepared at the Republican headquarters
in Washington to be printed by the
thousand and sent to every official urging
him to special interest in the approaching
campaign. These circulars will not be
couched in the stern language of the
Hubbell levy but will be so worded as to
make the impression that it is best for
the federal officeholders to "aute."
Blaine's plan is to make a vigorous cam?
paign in every State which can be con?
sidered doubtful, and into these States
the corruption fund is to be poured.
The more doubtful the Slate the more
money it will receive. With all the
restrictions of the so called civil service,
and with the additional legislation on the
question of campaign assessments, it is
impossible to prevent the accumulation
of a great fund to buy votes for the
Republican party. Its managers know
how to get money and they will have it.
They elected the last presidential ticket
with money and meau to try to elect
Blaine and Logan by the same means.
? Last week tho Pickens corre?poi>
dent of the Greenville News stated that
Major Lewis R. Redmond was in a dying
condition and would Hoon pass away.
The same report reached us and we wroie
and bad set up the rumor as we had
heard it, but before going to press we
met John L. Gravely, Esq., who lives
within one and a half miles of Redmond
and enquired of him as to the truth of
the report. Mr. Gravely informed us
that there was no foundation for the re?
port ; that he had seen him only the
evening before and that he (Redmond)
said he thought his health was slowly
but gradually improving. We are glad
to be able to make this correction on
such good authority as Mr. Gravely.?
? Bread ought to be cheap. It is
computed that over 00,000,000 bushels of
last year's crop remain. The crop of
this year is enormous, almost, if not
3uile, unprecedented, while the foreign
emand grows beautifully les*. If bread
be not cheap, it is the fault of grain
gamblers and not of Nature. Sugar is
another necessity that ought to be low in
price. The supply of various kinds is
immense. The Springfield Republican
says the price in Glasgow is five cents a
pound, while a Glasgow grocer bids for
custom by offering tea at the usual price
and throwing in the sugar.

Moses at His old Tricks.
A few days ago a mau giviug the Dame
of Dr. Warren, of Philadelphia, but af?
terwards changing it to James K. Law?
rence, of Dover, Del., was arrested in
Chicago on a charge of obtaining money
by false pretences from two or three
physicians of that city. He proves to be
the notorious ex Governor Moses, of this
State. We take the following from the
J. 13. Warren claimed to be a delegate
to the late Convention fromTerre Haute.
He acted also as a representative of a
photographic establishment which en?
larges pictures. He secured orders and
collected on the same about $700. War?
ren entered the office of Dr. J. H. Hol
lister and introduced himself as Dr.
Morton, from Philadelphia. He chatted
pleasantly with the Chicago physician,
and before leaving the office asked Dr.
Hollister to lend him $25 to help him
beck to Philadelphia, when he would
promptly forward the money. Dr. Hol?
lister soon discovered that he had been
duped in lending the money and swore
out a warrant for his arrest. Warren
was caught and brought before Justice
Foote, who continued the case in $500
bail to June 18. While in the armory
lock-up Warren was identified by Dr. J.
Adams Allen, of No. 125 State street, as
the man who beat him out of $17 last
week on the representation that he was
Dr. Morton, of Philadelphia, and the
prisoner was booked on the second charge.

can be supplied by sending in their order in time, and I will guarantee satisfaction.
All kinds of PULLEYS AND SHAFTING and MOST IMPROVED CANE
MILLS and EVAPORATORS furnished to order.
Van Winkle King Cotton Press
Has long been before the public, and is too well
known to need any further de' t.ption. Its chief
points of merits are: It takes very little room, is
easily handled, and takes so little power; can be
used on all kinds of powers?horse, water or steam.
Ginning and packing can all go on at the same
time, without interfering with the Gin. A two
inch belt will pack a 500 lb. bale of cotton. It
saves its cost the lirst season in labor.
Read the following. Testimonial:
ANi'Knsox, S. C?Mr. John E. Peoples?Sir: The
Steam Power Van Winkle Cotton Press bought
from you last Fall has given entire satisfaction. I
packed bales of cotton weighing ??O to 725 lbs. in
live minutes with all ease, using a 4-inch belt and
25 lbs. steam. There did not seem any more strain
on the Press than with a 450 lb. bale. For dura?
bility, strength, lightness of power, small quantity
of steam required, economy of space, I deem it the
King of all Cotton Presses ; especially so as the low
iprice at which it can be bought for puts it within
reach of every man running a steam Gin. In fact
I would not be without it for twice its cost. I
would advi se all my friends to buy one of Van Winkle's Steam Power Cotton Presses, as
you will save its cost in labor in one year. M. A. COBB.

testify to its merits:

THE HALL SELF-FEEDING COTTON GIN,
Manufactured at Sing Sing, N. Y., has given satisfaction wherever used. The Saws are
made of the best imported steel. The saw shaft is the largest made. An examination
of other Gins will convince you it is the most substantially built Gin in use. It never
breaks the roll, and therefore does away with the expense of the revolving head, as the
secret of making the Gin to prevent its breaking the roll is in the proper shape of the
roll-box. Every one should examine the improvements in the Hall Gin made this year,
especially the improvement in the Feeder. Below I give you a few naniej of those who
have purchased the Hall Gin:
