Tjjk name of Rev. I. S. Kalloch having
gained considerable prominence by the re
cent tragedy in San Francisco, it is well
enough to remind the reader who he is
and what he was. He entered the ministry
as a Baptist preacher in Boston, something
over 21 years ago. He was, as correctly
stated by an exchange, accused of visiting
taverns incog, and drinking "whisky skins"
nnd indulging in other excesses, with
female companions. lie was tried but not
convicted. Believing, however, that the
gravity and notoriety of the charges against
him had destroyed his usefulness, Mr. Kal
loch quit the ministry, left Boston, and
mado his home in Kansas, where he prac
ticed law and tnadc some stir in politics.
After a time Mr. Kalloch removed to Cali
fornia, where he had become very active in
political agitations. Ilia aggressive spirit
aroused enemies against him, who revived
the old Boston scandal, lie denounced the
authors, and then ensued his assassination.
"Mac,1 of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat,
the coy . fellow that he is, couldn't resist
(lath's importunities, ami was seduced, the
'other day, iuto an "interview." The inti
mation that he sought the interview that he
might spit his long-hoarded venom upon
8charz uud others, is properly bruuded as
cruel and ungenerous. He's too
good a man to seek an
opportunity to belch unsavory slull' upon
any man. He referred to Scliurz in the
terms detailed below, but every word came
out impaled by a cork-screw. "Sehurz,"
said Mac, reluctantly and mourntully, "was
n general, but never was there a battle that
he didn't run away from. His record in
the army probably has no comparison for
audacity in getting a command, imbecility
in handling it, and timidity in the face of
the enemy. He was elected by fraud to the
United States Senate. Grant held him a
Hessian, und ouit fiviriLf him o.'liees. His

fito:kinthe Westliclie Post was given to
him by Pap Melvee and Henry T. Blow.
He took the stock, holds the property and
sold his party out." Of John Sherman, the
.possible Republican candidate for the
presidency, Mac spoke less restrainedly.
'Sherman is a cold, colorless, Hc!fish man,"
Kuid lie, "with no friends, no generosity,
no spark anywhere about
hi ui. He has no virtues and is without a
lingle redeeming vice." It will add some
what to tho interest and pungency of these

DkLa Matyh, the Indiana Grcenbacker,
has been doing good service in Maine, alike
for the Lord and the Grcenbacker. Having
concluded his week's labor ou the otump,
he reached Portland, Saturday evening, aud
yielding to the solicitations of tJrccnbaek
friends, consented to preach in one of
tlic leading churches, if it would be entirely
agreeable all around. Hut it was agreeable
only half way around, for the Republican
members of the eengregation "put their
feet down," and talked about blocking the
aisles with dead bodies before such a sacre-
ligious purpose should be consummated!
These Republican puritans not only refused
to allow tho Hoosier Grcenbacker to preach
in their church, but refused, after having
been thereunto requested, to announce lrom
their pulpits that Do La Matyr had
hired a hall, and would preach,
though all the aisles of all the churches of
Portland were blocked against his entrance.
ud preach Mr. Do La Matyr did. His hall
was jammed with the best people f Port
land, and, wonderful to tell, he did not
make even the slightest allusion to the
pending political contest. His discourse
won a fervent, earnest scriptural talk that
was for him the congratulations of friends
and the sjood will of all who heard him.
This fact going abroad among the people,
the denunciations that were heaped upon
the over-Godly Republican ring that sought
to sail a nroclahucr ',1' the
true fahh, were frefpu-nt and severe fame
armed with the Uuth of a serpent ;.u l the

SAN FRANCISCO CONVULSED.
I he snooting ot Iv.-v. 1. . Kailot li, the
workingmen's candidate for May'-r, in ti.
city of California, by ("has. De Young, or.j
of the editors of the Chronicle, caused a
commotion throughout California utterly
unparalleled in the history of that State.
It was a cowardly, dastardly act, ar.i1 t!i.
wonder is that the enraged partisans of
Kalbch did not tear the assassin limbles-,
when they had him in hands.
Shortly after Kalloeh's nomination, IX-
Young, who was a recognized leader of the
Hon. Bilk's fiction, sent Kalloch word that
unless he withdrew ho would ventiilate the
record of his licentious conduct, twenty
years ago iu Boston, and Iris subsequent
immorality elsewhere. Kalloch defied him
to do his worst in that regard, reminding
him that his own record was not spotless,
and that he must not hope to, escape retali
ation in kind. The Chronicle made the
promise I exposure, even dragging ia tho
name of Kalloeh's father, who
had been dead many years. Aud true to
his promise, Kalloch retaliated. In a public
speech, after a withering visitation upon
the two De Young brothers, he denounced
them as "the bastard sons of a prostitute."
.Next day Chas. De loung drove in a
covered coupo to Kalloeh's private residence ;
dispatched a messener to :.k him to come
out, and shot him in the breast the instant
he made his appearance. K illoch turned
t retreat, when the assassin again tired,
striking his victim in the back. A crowd
of excited citizens immediately turned over
tlie carriage, dragged De Young out, kicked
and bruised, and no doubt would have
killed him but for the .prompt interference
of the police, who rescued him and hurried
him off to prison. In less than half an hour
the entire city was in an uproar. A mob
ot ten thousand people thronged the streets,
demanding the blood of the assassin.
As time passed the excitement
increased, and two hours after the tragedy
the half of the entire population of the
city was in the streets, ready aud anxious
to bo led against the prison in which De
Young was incarcerated. Never before had
San Francisco witnessed such a scene of
excitement and fury. This was the condi
tion of affairs Friday evening, when Kear
ney readied the city, amidst the shouts and
huzzuhs of ten thousand working men.
Since then the utmost excitement has pre
vailed, business being completely paralyzed,
and the whole people.apparently, sharing iu
the excitement or tho dread ot its conse
quences, Had Kearney said the word, ten
thousand men would have charged upon
tho prison and secured Do Young, even at
the cost of a thousand lives; but fortunate
ly Kearney advised tho mob to await
the issuo of Kalloeh's injuries.
If lie died, they would wreak summary
vi'iigeancn ujion his murderer; if he recov
ered, they would act ns might be deter
mined hereafter. Kalloch rested quietly
during Sunday night, and Monday morning
it was announced that the chances were
largely in favor of his recovery. This an
nouncement served to quiet tho mob; and
it is now believed that San Francisco will
bo spared the terrible scenes of bloodshed
that seemed so imminent. While wo hopo
this belief is well-grounded wo arc certainly
not moved by any sympathy for (lie assas
sin. He has forfeited his right to life, and
should have died tho death whilo yet the
smoke was curling irom the pistol in his
hand that sped tho murderous missiles.

A LINCOLN ANECDOTE.
From the Decatur 111 - Sun.
While Judge Logan of Springfield, HI.
was Lincoln's partner, two fanners, who
had a misunderstanding respecting a horse
trade, went to law. By mutual consent the
partners in law became antagonists in this
case. On the day of the trial Mr. Logan,
having bought a new shiit, open in the
back, with a huge' standing collar, dressed
himself in extreme haste and .put on the
shirt with the bosom at the back, a linen
coat concealing the blunder, lie dazzled
the jury with his knowledge of "horse
points," and as the day was sultry tsok off
his coat and summed up in his shirt shaves.
Liniolu sitting behind him, took in the sit
uation, and when his turn came, said to
the jury: "Gentlemen, -Mr. Logan lias been
trying fr over an hour M make you believe
that he knows more about a horse than
these honest old. farmers who are witnesses:
fie hus quoted largely from his 'horse doctor,'
and now, gentlemen, I submit to you tin re
he liftt d Logan otft of his chair and turned
his back to the jury and the crowd, at tin
same thru' flipping up his en irmous stand
ing roi'.or), what dependence can you place
on his horse knowledge when lie lias not
se:;sc enough to put on his shirt.'" Tho
rars of laughter that trt-ted this exhibi
tion, and tlie verdict that Lincoln got -con
after, gave Loan a permanent prejudice
against "b----i in shirts."
A ROMANCE F THE PLAIN:

in sight, save the one ro--in-d 0x10 s!;..nty

This was the stopping-place for the bride
r.nd her groom. He w as taking h'-r to his
new ho me, fifty miles back on the plains:
but there was no one. to meet them as ex
pected, and the thread-like traii disappeared
over the horizon, five miles away, with no
sign of a greeting team. it seemed like
a dark revelation to the poor c:rl; it was
the first test of devution to her husband
and a severe one. On being lifted down
from the car steps, she gazed around in the
utmost di :v:.r.y ; then, with a quick, beseech
ing glance into the young man's face,
down wh:ch sympathetic tears were stream,
ing, despite his evidently brave resolutions
the bride of the plains sank into his arms
and sobbed aloud. The scene told its own
melancholy story, and visibly affected the
hundred or more spc-tafors who had crowd
ed to the platforms, as usual upon all occa
sions of leaving a passenger on a si-ilng.
Let us hope that the mesH-ngers from that
1'ar-awav home finally reached "Fourte-ntli

soon lie an all sufficient solace for that city
bred bride so suddenly transported to th
treeless wilds of Dakota.
