Then tho true story is given, which is
in eltect this: 'I'll tun usertt that in the fall
of IbiO, Mri, Tilton being just back trom
it watering place, Mr. Ileevlier viiilvd her,
and in a moment of fervid pastoral duty,
ho sought her to accord to linn nil Ibotu
peculiar favors which her sex admits
of. Mrs Tilton declined toe honor with
tho mature eadnees of coinuuu sense.
Then tho told hur husliaud. Ho inked
her to make a memorandum. This is it:
"Yesterday afternoon, my friend and
pastor, Henry Ward lleei-yer, solicited
mo to become his wife in all tho relations
which tho term Implies."
Tilton was then editor of tho Now
York 'Independent, and or tho ti
'Union,' makinir all of n year.
Six weeks after tho ocourronco Tilton tells
lloweit of the honor .Mr. Ueocher intended
to confer upon his tTilton's) wife. Theo
dore alto eavs that for n jcar provious,
iiowen hail been in.cuiing Ilieeher of

i Then -Mr. Frank Mouiton comes on tho

that thero wero at that time certain con
tingencies existing which atlectcd not him

wero all romovod. Notwithstanding this
statement, my recollection is porfoct that
what Tilton read to mo us bis story tallies
exactly with what the thunderbolt says in
roferuice to Mr. liei-cher soliciting Mrs.
Tilton to extend to him tho favors of wife
hood, nnd furthermore, that tho lettor
from Tilton to llowen, but recently pub
lished, was there in oxtonso, tlio ono caso
being that In which tho honor of his wife
was attacked, the other springing from a
business and salary relation with H. C.

nbly accounts fur tho vindictive spirit
shown by Mr. Jiowcn when ho
urgod Tilton to wr-ito that demand for
Decoder's resignation which hu so
obligingly carried, and which ho was
smart enough not to sign. In view of the
fact in this connection that notwithstand
ing tho hot shot lho 'Eaglu' is pouring
into tho 'Union,' of which llowun Is pro
prietor, culling him tbo slanderer ot bis
pastor daily ; and in view, furthermore,
that last Wednesday Mr. Ileecher's friends
ollercd $125,000 for the purchase of n coii-
trolliug interest in thu 'Union,' the situa
tion is certainly suggestive.

itxi bare-faced attempt of Boucher t
friends to htao lliu cliamo ol tho duaa wuu

well to mention a fad not generally

Western Pennsylvania, named ostbrook
ox-minlster and cx-lawycr, and now
a uccessful coal oporalor, also called upon
them and heard their story. Thence hu
went to Tilton and interviewed Iiltn.
Tilton read him thu statement now pub-
llihedintho thunderbolt proviuufly read
to me, nnd nupplemonted that reading by
lho recital of a gross rapo by Mr. lieeehcr
upon tho person of a celebrated literary
lady of this city by tho nailo of Proctor,
dressing tho story up in glowing and dra
