Bos row, June 10. The IcmM yesterday
morning said Boston business men are not
wanting who rejoice In ex-Govemor Hale's
low nfall, and who speak of htm as one who
fcaa fleeced his friends by unloading worth
less mining stock upon them. On the rep
resentation of a mining agent of Hale's, on
Tregelow, the Monarch mine, In Idaho, was
bought by Hale for, as Is alleged, a nominal
sum, although Hale claimed to have paid

larno quantity ot tho stock was floated hero
and In New York, and a mill costing J80.000
was erected at the mlno.
From the investment thero has never been
any return. A subsequent Investigation by
an expert showed that In onler to mako tho
Monarch of any value the purchaso of two
adjacent mines was necessary. Tho mines
wero bought mid tho three wcro consolidated
under tho namo of tho Tremont talno.
It Is said that tho property Is valuable,
but the company exhausted Its funds before
realizing any profit The stock has tumbled
from five dollars a share to almost nothing.
It Is said that Hale inado $100,000 by this
transaction and that ho made a like sum by
promoting the War Eagle tnlno enterprise,
the mine having been worked out before
coming Into Hale's possession. The losers

A irntM reporter on Monday Interviewed
Governor Halo, at his residence In Keene,
N. H. Tho latter was unprepared to make
a formal statement of his affairs, but would
say that many untrue assertions had been
made which, at some time, ho would refute
In reply to the statement that his wealth
had been far less than was claimed, Mr.
Hale said that four years ago he was worth
8400,000 clear of indebtedness, ne had lost
his money by the shrinkage of Tallies and
unprofitable singulations; for example $27,
f00 had been sunk in the Lima, Ohio, Car
Company, and $100,000 in the Lebanon
The ex-Governor dented that he had over
stated tho value of his ptoperty. He had
given to a business agency a schedule of his ,
holdings, with a statement of the par Talus
of the stocks, and saying at the time that
their market value could bo learned on tho
street The ex-Govemor attributes the bit
ter enmity against him partly to his partici
pation In politics. An Inspection by the
reporter of the attachments on file. In Keene
against iiato's property, shows that several
of tho writs charge Hale with obtalnlnf
various sums of money upon false repre
sentations that he was worth oTjer $500,000,

Freuch-Canadian member, called the atten

his Imprisonment at Reglna. Mr. Laurler
.thought that there was no necessity for
Kiel's being manacled with a ball and chaba
being attached to his ankle. Sir John Mao
donald pointed out the lack of a safe
place of Imprisonment at Reglna, bat
said that he would telegraph for Informa
tion and If Blel was treated with unneces
sary severity the matter rrould be remedied.
In reply to a question Sir John said that I
was not usual for the Government to notify
political felons of the steps that were being
taken to secure their punishment Arch

folly of Kiel's conduct and has no sympathy

Niw Tonic, June 10.-The Cotmnerefart

esting gossip about General Grant and his
Merary methods. It describes him as com
pletely dominated by the desire to finish his
book that he may leave It as a legacy to his
family. lie sometimes wakes up In the
night, calls for a light, puts down some re
membrances and then goes to sleep again.
He stops hi the midst ef conversation te
record a reminiscence. Be was recently
asked: "What about that story of the sur
render of General Lee's sword?"
"I didn't take, his sword," replied the
General, "because I didn't think it wohldbe
right Nothing was said or thought of It"
"It la usual to take the sword, Isn't Itf"
"Yes, but I wouldn't do It In that case."
To the writer of this article the General
aid In the course of conversation, "I have
read a good deal hi my life but I know of no
grander man than General Lee."
The truth concerning tho General's throat
Is that the swelling Is now so large that the
physicians cannot examine It except by feel
ing It He cannot open his mouth wldo for
them to look far Into It without great pain.

writer, that General Badeau, when General

famHj was Incensed at the report Colonel
Fred Oraat showed the manuscript to a

"I am sore he would not," replied the
It Is a ilgntflcaat fact that nothing more
is to be heard of General Badeau. He has
left the house, bag and baggage, and has
ant been In It for some time.
The first volume ef the book will appear
