Washington, February 7. The journal of
private Henry, who was Eliot, tor stealing
provisions, by order of Lieutenant Greely,
has been made public. He writes under date
of May 3d that Le (Whistler), who was
loudest in his denunciation of the unfortu
nate who was tempted to steal a scrap of
meat was today caught in the commissary,
havng broken open the door, and was found
with about a pound of bacon in his pocket.
The entry of May 11th is: "Cowardly action
in Greely, wanting to shoot Dr. P.;
also drew his rifle on Bendsr;
He calls Ki liogburg a liar and apologises to
enlisted men. Four days latter is following:
Yesterday Biederbeck and Whistler had a row
out doors, and some one stole Elison's bacon
which was under charge of Lieutenant Greely.
Terrible struggling but death by starvation
actually had no terror for us. We looked
with stolid indifference upon our eomingfate.
A few hours before death, instead of craving
for food, they kept calling foi water and
could hardly be controlled or satisfied, nnd
all, with one exception, were unconscious
for hours before dying. Poor Lockwood
came out of his bag to stand in the alley
way, when the moonshine distillery was go
ing on, and was last to receive his potat'on.
When the rest of us had our share he re
queued a rejietition of the dose from the of
ficiating steward, aud upon being repremanded
by the officer for asking for such a thing from
the steward, he turned round to the doctor
anil said: "Well, I will go to the fountain
head," and he repeated his de
mand. Upon being absolutely de
nied, he dropped to the floor
and hardly ever opened his mouth again to
utler another word.'' May 23d: Alter not
ing that Whistler was dying, Henry says:
"I called in the feut and informed him
that five men made eworn statement
that Pavey 6tole Ellison's rations, and
that the official record concerning it had been
tampered with." A. W. G.: "If he does
die, he dies the death of a miserable coward."
On May 2Sth is the following entry: "Poor
Kislingbury is sinking rapidly, and the doc
tor has given him up. Last night
Dr. Pavey and Lieutenant Greeley
had another squabble over the medicine.
The majority of us, fourteen, have
given up all hopes of seeing our friends again,
but few have still a chance at the conclusion
of this terrible tragedy to be welcomed with
universal acclamation as worthy fronteers
men by Uncle Sam, and as men who have
made themselves immortal by a splendid
victory, and innumerable Bufferings hitherto
incomparable in the annals of arctic explora
tion, and against all the laws of ntture. The
nots of the first few days of Juue are but
a brief memoranda of the rapidly sinking
condition of those left. These
were made just prior to his having
been shot. Extracts lrom other
diaries show a deplorable state of affairs. In
subordination prevailed to considerable ex
tent, and quarrelling, sometimes leading to
blows, was not an nncommou occurrence.
Sergeant Brainard's diary is in his personal
possession, and not obtaainable, and Sergeant
Council declines to allow his diary to be in
spected, stating that it was written with ex
press understanding that no one but General
Hazen sheuld read it.

St. Valentine's day is near at hand, and
nothing more dainty than his visiting cards
for 1885 can be conceived. In the time of
our childhood lace paper covered with
Cupids, a wreath of roes, and love-mottoes
"sweeter thau honey in the honeycomb,"
constituted the valentine proper, which was
looked upon as a possession "worth its weight
in gold." To be sure it never brought down
the scales very heavily, but, for all that, it
was laid carefully away in the family Bible,
Rollins' Ancient History, Fox's Book of
Martyrs, Pilgrims' Progress, or some other
safe receptacle not likely to bo disturbed,
as a thing of beauty which was a
joy forever. One of the favorite conceits of
ye olden time was a small mirror concealed
by a cunning movable lid, on which was in
scribed "The one of all the world I love the
best," It was enough to make one happy
until another Valentine's day to lift it, with
tjembling fingers, and see one's self. But
the valentine has been looking up since the
days when we were young. It has ambi
tiously leaped from the lace paper and gututned
on Cupid to satin and plush adorned
by the real artistic touch. Ay, it
has even soared higher and be

term it, of greater things; for a not uncom

ingly impossible. The press notices through
the country speak very highly of these tal
ented young artists.
The most fun lor the least money can be
had at the rink, on next Thursday evening,
when a grand old-fashioned sheet and pillow
case party will be given. The costume can
be made up at little or no expense, and it is
will known to be the most effective disguise
there is. As on masquerade nights, no one
will be allowed to skate, except those in cos
tume, until 9 o'clock, and then all can skate
that wish, all who come, tn-costume, must
make themselves known when purchasing
The skates have all ben thoroughly over
hauled, repaired and cleaned, and are now in
first class shape, as good as new. The floor,
also, is in good condition, and all can now
enjoy the greatest of American pastimes.
Unless other rotice is given, on next Sat
urday evening, will be the "hat carnival."
Prizes will be given as follows: One to the
largest hat, one to the smallest hat, and one
to the worst and hardest looking hat worn
by the gentlemen skaters present.
Last night a Urge crowd was present at
the Casino Skatiug Rink to witness the two
mile race between Charles F. Randall, of
Dayton, the champion fast skater ot Ohio
and James Huckins, of this city, who is con
sidered the fastest skatet here. The race
was for a purse of $25, and was won by
Randall in eleven and one-hall min
utes. At precisely nine o'clock the
floor was cleared and the race
announced. At a signal the contestants
started, Randall taking the lead. Once or
twice during the race Huckins made several
efforu to pass Randall, but failed, and the
latter retained the lead to the end. The two
kept well together for about a half mile,
when Randall made a spurt, and
when the first mile was -completed,
wa3 nearly a half lap ahead. With this in
his favor, he skated Slowly for a 6hort
time, but towards the eud of the second
mile, again "spurted" and left Huckins a half
lap behind The first mile wa3 made by
Randall in five minutes and the second in
six minutes. The fastest time he ever made
wa 3:30, at the Dayton rink some time pgo.
Two skaters were talking after the race
between Huckins and Randall, when one of
them lemarked: "That's nothing, you should
have seen the race last night. "What race?"
inquired the one addressed. "The human
race," was the reply, and the perpetrator was
pnt out of the rink.
VO I'KlilART ELECTION.
The Central Committee Settles the Ques
tion ia Favor of a Delegate Conven
tion. Since the primary plan of nominating can
didates for office in this city and county has,
as it has almost everywhere else, fallen into
such disrepute on account of its well-known
abuse, public sentiment has been outspoken
in favor of its discontinuance. The Gi.obe
Repcjlic, in anticipation of the meeting of
the Central Committee on yesterday after
noon, sought to inform the public more fully,

What the Chances Are of Having a Oood
Base Kail Club In Springfield Next
Base ball matters in Springfield are assum
ing definite shape and it ii about settled that
if any encouragement is given at all by the
citizens and the street railroad company,
Springfield will have the best clnb ever run
here. Mr. Harry C. Fisher, who managed the
home club last season in such a fine mannen
has interested himself in a elub for next
year and has been kept busy visiting other
cities and writing letters to base ball
enthusiasts, who are also interested in the or
ganization of an inter-State Association, or
the Ohio and Indiana League, as it will prob
ably be called. He has been to Dayton, and
there is no doubt a club can be organized
there. With Hamilton there is doubt. Par
ties in Terre Haute, Ft. Wayne, and Evans
ville, Indiana, are very much enthused
on the subject, and it seems a
"dead" certainty that the whole scheme will
be consumated. As to the local club, Spring
field certainly has enough base ball lovers
who wid back a club. The one great point
to lie urged is not to put only a very
small amount of money into it and get a
third-rate club, and then expect to make
money. It cannot be done. Springfield
is one of the best base
ball towns in the State, but
the people will have a good club or cot sup
port a poor one. Plenty of moiey should
back the club, and if fine players are secured
the first of the season, its success is assured.
The street railroad of this city made a neat
little pile ot money last Eeason by carry
ing persons to and from the grounds,
and it should certainly come to
the front with a donation of $200 or $250 to
start the ball rolling.
Mr. Fiiber has been looking into the mat
ter of joining the Sonthern League, as re
quested by different parties, and has come to
the conclusion that there is nothing in it for
Springfield, as the "jumps" from ene town to
another are too far.
Attractions for the Week "The Silver
King" Monday Evening.
To-morrow nfght "The Silver King" -Will
be pres-nted at the Grand Opera House. The
"Silver King" is a lomantic melodrama ot
power and purpose. It deals with the bound
ing ot an innocent man, who is supposed to
have committed murder, and the persecution
of a faithful woman (his wife) and her little
children to verge of starvation. The man
becomes a fugitive and a wanderer, and after
years, returns home rich from successful min
ing. He cannot declare his Identity, but pro
tects his family by stelth, through his child,
an interesting little girl. Finally, his inno
cence of the crime is established, and all ends
happily. The plot is well contrived, the
dramatic situation is strong and the scenery
is a feature of intense interest. It is un
questionably the greatest of modern dramas.
"Her Atonement" will be presented at the
Grand next Wednesday evening. This is an
American play of a military character and is
rendered doubly interesting by several sets of
Miss Carrie Swain will appear at Black's
next Thursday evening in her blight and
sparkling play "The Little Joker." The play
was written to suit her specialties, which have
always pleased her audiences here.
On next Thursday evening, February 12,
the charming soubrette, Miss Carrie Swain,
supported by a strong company, will present
"The Little Joker" for the benefit of Divis
ion 6, Uniform Rank, K. of P. The Dan
bury (Conn.) Item says of her:
"Full of life, overflowing with fnn, viva
cious, bright, sparkling, and at timts pa
thetic, she is the equal of Annie Pixley, yet
at the same time is different. Miss Swain is
an excellent singer, a pretty dancer, and pos
sesses a spnghtliness that, added to her ex
pressive face, i3 captivating. Any future
visit from her will draw a full house.
Frederick Warde a Virginias.
A large audience, made up )f the culture,
fashion and intelligence of Springfield, as
sembled last evening to witness Frederick
Warde's Virginius at the Grand Opera House.
The performance was given under the
auspices of the Knights of Pythias, and
Division C is to be congratulated In giving us
one of the finest dramatic treats of the sea
son. Virciniu3 was once produced here by
McC'ullougb, and the play has always been a
favorite with Springfield play-goers. Mr.
Warde's conception of the character of the
noble Roman father is thoroughly finished,
and he fills every requirement of the role.
The scene where he faces the tyrant Appius
in the Roman forum with Virginia on his
breast was particularly fine. Mr. Warde was
awarded the two warmest calls before the cur
tain that have been accorded to any star this
season indeed, his reception wa3 almost in
the nature of an ovation. The support was
nneqnal, some being very good and some
very bad. It i3 thought by many critics that
Mr. Warde will take the position as the lead
ing tragedian of the robust school, so unhap
pily lett vacant by the sad affliction of Mc-

To tiu Editor or the Globe-Republic I
wish to correct a mistake of mine In the ar

My statement about $3 a week was not cor

cabinet-maker makes trom $6 to $8 a week

amount ot time it took to make the $3. I
would not do any one an injustice, and furth

Mr. James Place, whose failing health
caused him to leave the city a tew months
ago, is still very ill at the residence of his
father. West Thirty-third street, New York
City. His case has thus far baffled the skill
ot the best medical practitioners, and though
his many friends hope for his recover, great
doubts concerning it are awakened in the
mind3 of those best acquainted with his con
dition. Mr. Place is a young man, and it
seems mysterious and inexpressibly sad that
a disease so serious as internal cancerous
tumor should develop in the system of one
of his age and apparently vigorous constitu
tion. The patrol wagon made a run about half
past seven, last evening, to the "hill" for a
colored fellow known as "Captain Jinks" but
he was not waiting for it when it got there.
