Making For the Burial of General
Washington, D. C, Dec. 23. Mrs.
Logan received this morning a long tele
gram signed officially by the city clerk of
Chicago embodying resolutions adopted by
the city council. The council formally, re
quests that the burial place of the dead
statesman be selected in the city upon
which he coufencd so much honor, in a
site to be dedicated by the city to that pur
pose. The council appointed a committee
to confer with committees f civic and mil
itary organizations in regard to selecting
the place of burial, and make arrangements
for the reception and interment of the re
mains. . As announced informally last
night decision is practically reached to have
the funeral services in the senate chamber
next Friday, and then convey the remains
to Chicago. Few details of arrangements
have as yet been determined upon.
The senate committee acting through
the sergeant-at-arms will have immediate
charge of the remains.
Col. Kennedy announces by request of
MrsT Logan that General Sheridan will be in
charge of the procession which will escort
the remains from Calumet place to the
Following is the committee appointed by
Senator Sherman to take charge of the re
mains of Senator Logan: Senators Culloui,
Stanford, Cockrell, Allison, Beck, Sewcll,
Voorhees, Hampton and Manderson.
Formal announcement of the arrange
ment and completion of details awaits and
depends upon the definite selection by the
Chicago people of a suitable spot for the
tomb. Mrs. Logan expressed the Avish that
the place be one which will never suffer
from the encroachments of commerce and
population. She refers to the site of the
Douglass monument which, when selected,
was remote from population, but is now
surrounded by steam railroads and dwell
ing houses, as an example of a site she
wishes to avoid. A suitable spot, she
thinks, will be found near the entrance to
Honored by the City Ho Honored.
Chicago, 111., Dec. 2S. Mayor Harri
son sent a communication to the city coun
cil last night requesting that body to pass
resolutions asking the family of Gen. Lo
gan to allow the dead general to be inter
red in Chicago. Resolutions to that effect
were adopted by a rhing vote. The "West
Park board yesterday took action looking
to the erection of a monument tc Gen. Lo
gan at the entrance to the p.rk. A site
overlooking the boulcuarvb has been ten
dered bv the South Park commissioners for
the general's grave.
The secretary of the South Park com
missioners said today there would be no
meeting of the board to take action on the
proposed grant of site in Chicago for the
burial of Gen. Logan's body. The Board
after consulting with Melville W. Fuller
decided to send the following telegram to
Our attorney, Mr. Fuller, advises th'
Park commissioners that they cannot, un
der their charter, tender a place of burial,
but the legislature might pass an act au
thorizing such use. This probably can be
secured. Thus advised the commissioners
cannot make a formal tender. They are of
the opinion, however, the monument
should bo erected at the head of Grand
Boulevard, and SoOth street, and the name
changed to Logan Boulevard. Mrs. Logan
would doubtless want assurance by deed of
dedication that the burial place be forever
reserved. You wil sec Fuller's opinion
prevents the commissioners, under existing
Ian from making assurance, however cor
dial their individual wishes might be.
The city council and citizens committee
will hold a joint session this aftcrnoAi.
when definite action as to a site is expected
to be taken.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 28. Col.
Jerome B. Burke, commanding the depart

"He was among the vcrj earliest in the
work of organizing the Grand Army of the
Republic, and to him, a? much as to any
other man is due the credit of attaining the
proud position which our order holds to
day throughout the country. Reposing
confidence in him, he was again and again ;
elected commander-in-chief, and at no time
have commands lost confidence in him.
He has been true to u and our interests
alwajs. Honei.t. loyal, brave and patriotic,
his memory v. ill never fade from the minds
of those who loved and respected him su
long. This department tenders to his lov-

Washington, JD. C. Dec. 28. Captain
George F. Lemon, of the National Trib
une, this morning started a subscription
fund for the benefit of Mrs. Logan with
$1,000, and sent invitations to hundreds of
Gen. Logan's friends and admirers through
out the country, asking them to contribute.
The Western Union Telegraph company
tendered the free use of its wires for trans
mitting subscriptions. Responses are now
coming rapidly, and $1,000 subscriptions
have been received from Senator Sawyer,
non. Wm. Walter Phelps, John B. Drake,
of Chicago, Gov..-t3gier, of Michigan, Geo.
W. Pullman, and others, and the receipts
in five hours from the time the subscription
was started amounted to $10,000. All per
sons desiring to contribute should telegraph

Milwaukee, Wis., Dec. 28. A special
to the Evening Wisconsin from Oshkosh
says Senator Sawyer telegraphed to the
Logan fuud committee at Washington that
he will subscribe $1,000.
Sherman, Tex., Dec. 28. Colonel O.S.
Lyons, deput- coa.mander of Texas, G. A.
R., has issued a general order announcing
the death of General Logan and appointing
a committee of eighteen post commanders
throughout Tex:is to attend the funeral.
A Pension for the Widow.
Washington, Dec. 28. The Evening
Star says: Anion,; members of the house
who visited the ca litol yesterday and to
day, the suggestioa was passed around that
a liberal pension should be grantod to the
widow of Gen. Logan, and it met with
hearty approval on every side. Democrats
manifested as much eagerness as Republi
cans to join in providing for the widow.
The heart' manner in which the sugges
tion has been taken hold of makes it cer
tain that among the first acts of congress
after assembling will be to pass a pension
bill for Mrs. Logan. It is agreed that
there would be eminent propriety in grant
ing a liberal pension based upon
General Logan's military services.
Some members arc of the opinion
that the pension should be
$5,000 per year, the sum granted to widows
of presidents, and though General Logan
did not occupy an office so exalted as that,
he was the recognized head representative
of the volunteer soldier. It is hardly prob
able that a pension of more than $2,500
will be made if the expressions of congress
men on that subject may be taken as a cri
terion with regard to the pension, as there
is no civil pension to be appropriated for
the relief of Mrs. Logan. They consider
only the military services of her husband,
but it is claimed that no violence would be
done to the spirit of the law in granting
her a pension, as General Logan was a
sufferer to his death from the effects of his
army experience; in fact it is disserted that
the rheumatism which was the primary
cause of Im death.vas contracted by ex
posure in the army
Washington, Dec. 28. The house fun
eral committee has not been made up. A
list of members now in the city was sent to
Mrs. Logan for her to select from; it has
not yet been returned to the speaker. As
soon as the list is returned he will make a
formal announcement of the committee.
The chairmanship of the committee on
military affairs which Gen. Logan has held
for years will probably go to Senator
The senate has been draped in mourning
for Gen. Logan, and the chair so long oc
cupied by the latter is a mass of black.
There is a motion on foot to have the ex
confederate soldier represented in the fun
eral procession that will follow the remains
of Senator Logan. Many of the ex-confederates
have expressed a desire to partici
pate. It is probable that a place will be
provided for them in the procession.
During the afternoon telegrams were re
ceived from Chicago throwing something
of doubt on the arrangement supposed to
have been already praetically concluded
for the funeral. The commissioners tele
graphed that after consultation with tlu-ir
attorney they were reluctantly led to the
decision that they la"ked authority to set
apart a place for the burial in the public
park, but that authority, the' say, will no
doubt be granted .jy tho legislature which
convenes next vc?k. In the meantime the
citizens' committee of Chicago suggested
other arranirem nts 'which could be per
fectctl wuhout ltjTjiy.
Upon receipt of the many telegrams it
was decided that the funeral will take place
in the senate chamber next Frida- and the
remains will be placed in a vault at Oak
1 1 til cemetery hero until the place of final
burial is determined.

Wheelock Makes Clean Breast of the
Leavenworth, Kan., Dec. 23 When
the train on the Rock Island, arriving here
at 8:33 p. m., came into, the Union depot
last night five men alighted, and keeping
close together hurried away up street and
were soon lost sight of. No particular at
tention was paid to them as there was noth
ing in their appearance or conduct that
would attract notice or comment, but some
one standing on the platform who saw the
party remarked that one of them looked
like Fred Wheelock. This was.enough to
excite the reportorial curiosity, and so a
representative of the Times undertook to
locate the quintette. No trace of the
party of strangers could be found.
Suddenly it occurred to him to shadow
the Wheelock residence on Miami street,
between Second and Third, and so, after
being reinforced- by another employe of
the paper, the two went to a place across
the street from the home of the Wheelocks,
where they took a stand and surveyed the
surroundings. All was quiet in the yard
and about the house; the blinds were
drawn and closed and there was no evi
dence that anyone was on the inside, ex
cept the faint glimmer of a lamp where the
light showed through one of the half

superintendent of the Adams' Express com
pany, who had immediate charge of the
search for the men who robbed the car near
St. Louis on October 25, returned today

covering the money. lie says he directed
Pinkerton to spare no money on the search
and he pronounced their effort the finest

Chattanooga, Tenn., Dec. 28. The
Tradesman has received exhaustive reports
from all the iron and steel plants in the
south, embracing the states of Alabama,
Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri,
North Carolina, Tenncssee.Texas.Virginia,
and West Virginia. These reports disclose
a most remarkable development in the iron
industry in the south tince the census of
1880. The total shows a gain in six years
of 505,200 tons. The rate of gain of capac
ity in Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia,
the three central iron states of the south,
was 533 per cent, since 1880. The Trades
man says: At the same rate of gain they
will have at the next census nearly one and
one-half million tons annual capacity, but
the indications point to a capacity of two
million tons annually at that time. In the
production of stoves the progress has been
equally as great. The production of cast
iron pipe in tin. south has quadrupled since
1882. The Tradesman's reports indicate a
more prosperous outlook for the south in
1887 than in the past, and all signs point
clearly to the fact that the south will great
ly increase its industrial importance in iron
and steel in the next two years, und the
production of raw and merchantable Iron
will be trebled before 1890.
Baltimore, Dec 28 In its annual re
view of the industrial progress of the south
the Baltimore Record in this week's issue
will say that 18S6 has been the most re
markable year in many respects in the his
tory of the southern states, and more has
been acconplifthed for the progress and
pjosperity of the whole south than ever be
fore in any year. This i3 shown in the
four years' invcbtniHit of capital in indus
trial enterprises. One of the moM gratify -inr
features in southern industrial projrrcfes.
says the Recoid, is the wide diversity of
new industries that are developing all
through that section.
