THE SHADOW OF
St. Louis, July 28. The following is a
copy of the preface to the forthcoming book
by Gen. McDonald. The book is entitled :
"Secrets ot the Great Whisky Ring. Con
taining a complete exposure of the illicit
whisky frauds culminating m 1873, and the
connection of Grant, Babcock, Douglas, Ches
ter II. Krum, and other administration offi
cers established by positive and unequivo
cal documentary proofs, comprising confi
dential letters and telegrams emanating
from the White House, directing the man
agement of thering. To which is added
the missing links in the chain of evidence
of James A. Garfield's implicationwith the
District of Columbia ring and DtGolyer
bribery. By Gen. John McDonald, form
erly Supervisor of internal revenue for the
district comprising Missouri, Arkansas,
Texas, Kansas, Indian Territory and New
Mexico." In this book Gen. McDonald
does not spare himself, but frankly ac
knowledges his instrumentality in the or
ganization and conduct of the ring and, ap
preciating his position, he is careful to
make only such statements as his letters
and telegrams with Grant, Babcock, etc.,
substantiate. Nothing is taken for grunt
ed all is proven.
NEARLY FIVE YEARS RAVE ELArSED
since my conviction as a member of the
great whisky ring of 1S73, or, more prop
erly, of the ring exposure of which occur
red during that year. Five years is but a
short while to those whose current of life
(lows with the melody of prosperity and
contentment, but to him whotc memory is
seared by the basest ingratitude man ever
showed to man; whose sacrifices for those
in power above hirn have ruined a life, in
the debris of which his eyes can never un
bend their fixed gaze at his own bitter hu
mility, it is ages.
In this introduction to my thorough ex
posure of the wLisky frauds culminating in
1 875, it is my desire to qualify a most un
enviable position, one which I have no de
sire to shrink from, however false appear
ing those sleuth hounds fresh from a glut
tonous feast of public blood, those abusers
of trust who cry "thief loudest in order to
deflec t the gr.ze ot justice from their own
villainies, seek to make it. I do not ap
proach the bar of public opinion at this day,
laying bare the hideous deformities of rec
reant high place officials, for the purpose
of vindicating myself. Far from it. De
nying or tilllnniug uuthing as to my own
guilt, the law has spent its force upon me:
I have paid the penalty, and further claims
against mc no man has; I am therefore en
titled to a considerate hearing in what I
have to say. '
Thoroughly appreciating how prone the
public will be to throw discredit upou my
statements, I have determined to omit much
that is unsupported by writteu or other cor
roborative evidence, and confine myself to
charges which I can prove by overwhelming
testimony. Every step, therefore is cau
tiously made, and if there is a biuglu libel
contalued in this book I am amenable to
the luw, tho burden of which few men have
felt more heavily. Each declaration is
made us if I were under oath, and in order
that the true story shull nppuur unabridgedi
I have deck liberally only with thu facts in
which I have been as equally unsparing of
myself as all of thu otlicru implicated with

asked a thousand timet to disclose- the se
crets I was believed to possess. Indeed I
was promised immunity from punishment
if I would become an informer; but those
secrets were not revealed, for reasons easily
understood; I was
AN ArrOINTEE OF PRESIDENT CHANT,
and his friend and tho recipient of his fa
vors, certain obligations were created which
I was not forgetful to regard. Gen. Bab
cock was the president's private secretary,
and there will be few to contradict mc
when I say that he was,- in a great
measure, the president's chief adviser, es
pecially in cases where his private matters
were concerned. I regarded Babcock's in
structions as thoso emanating from tho
highest authority, and however my obedi
ence to their orders may be concerned,
they were tho excuse fur my actions Hav
ing become identified with the purposes of
my superiors, and sharing their benefits
and intrusted with their confidence, when
disclosures were made and the hour of
sacrifice was at hand, I could not assume
the character of a base ingrate to escape a
punishment which, missing me, would in
volve the entire nation in the deepest dis
grace. If I were convicted I knew that the
tenure of my punishment would be limited
to the disposition of those in whose hands
tho pardoning power was vested; bav
in? received their promise of an im
mediate pardon, I put on the sackcloth
of disgrace, and from the high position I
had so many years maintained I descended
to the most humuiatincr, stigmatizing
depths a felon's cell. For seventeen
months I wore the garb ot infamy, that lep
rous, foul, polluted character which gnaws
at sensitive nature "like a worm in the
bud." I not only suffered this restraint of
liberty, with its unending nightmare of
moral death, but lived on to see the honest
accumulation of many years of patient
labor wasted because I could not protect it
and from an ample fortune upon my en
trance into po!trrcal life I was reduced to
penury when released. Those in power
forgot me and their promises; they feared
to issue me an immediate pardon because of
the pressure of public opinion, which might
become intensified against them at such a
bold interference to defeat the sentence of
the court, and I was therefore permitted It
languish until my forbearance would en
dure no more; then I demanded my pardon,
under threats ot exposure if it were not im
mediately granted, and I was released av
To those who will cavil at my course the
question will be suggested. "Why are
these disclosures made now, when the time
for their elective use in the court has pass
ed!" Grant's renoiaination would have
afforded a mere plausible pretext for the
publication of these disclosures v:tw..-d
from a strictly partisan standpoint, an 1 un
fortunately a great many persons can dis
cover to mernt in anything which may he
devoid ot political complexion. The pur
pose of this publication no'V has a boarder
base to rest upon than mere persona! via
dictiveness or political influence. It is to
expose the villainies of an administration
the very mention of which should tscite a
righteous indignation and
BEFOUL THE ATMOFPKEItE t
but though the crimes of Marius, who sold
offices in the public places of Rome, were
us virtues compared with many of the cor
rupt acts of Grant's administration, yet
there is a very large percentage of Ameri
can citizens whose eyes cannot penetrate
beyond the military glory with which
Grant was clothed; who parade h;3 states
manship and would reward his crimes with
an honor no other American ever held or
sought. It is with an earnest and we'd
considered belief that Gen. Grant will be a
disturbing factor in the politics and purity
of the nation so long us his infamies re
main hidden, which furnishes one of the
reasons for this exposure, and with this con
tribution to the literature of uncovered
venalty goes forth the hope that
the supporters of the Grant admin
istration will find the proof herein which
will cause the blush of shame to mnutlo
their checks for having lent their aid to
perpetrate infamies of sucli magnitude as
were constantly devolving while Gen.
Grant was our chief magistrate, who, as
will be conclusively shown, was an active
participant in the frauds laid bare in this

Advice to Consumptives. No man,
however uncleanly, would drink muddy,
dirty water. A party which occupies a
room for h6urs, breatbinic the same air,
might bo compared to a party of bathers
drinking the water in which they bathe.
Tho patient must keep tho window of his
bed room open. Night air is fresh air
without daylight. In close, crowded rooms,
tho patient suffering from lung complaints
breathes consumptively. By taking these
precautions and using Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery and Pleasant Purgative
Pellets, fully onc-hulf of tho cases of lung
complaints would bo cured in six months.
For cough and irritation of lungs do not
always indicate the presence of consump
tion although it may result in that disease,
and if consumption has already become
deeply seated in the .system, this is the
most efficient course of treatment that can
be pursued outside of any institution that
provides special facilities for the treatment
of this disease. Dr. Pierco's celebrated Iu
valids' Hotel is such an institution. Send
stamp for descriptive pamphlet containing
also a complete treatise upon consumption,
explaining its causes, nature, ami the best
methods of treating it, together with valua
ble hints concerning diet, clothing, exer
cise, etc., for consumptives. Address

Who is Mrs. Winslow. As this ques
tion is frequently asked, we will simply
say that she is a lady who for upwards of
thirty years has untiringly devoted her time
and talents as a female physician and
nurse, principally anions children. She
has especially studied the constiution and
wants of this numerous class, and. as a re
sult of this effort, and practial knowledge,
obtained in a lifetime spent as nurse ami
physician, she lias compounded a Soothing
Syrup, for children teethiui:. It operates
like magic giving rest and health, and is
moreover, sure to regulate the bowels. In
consequence of this artcle Mrs. Wiasiuw
is becoming world-renow ned asabeiietacf r
of her race ; children certainly do rise up and
bless her: especially is this the
case in this city. Vast quantities of the
Soothing Syrup are daily sold and used
here. We think Mrs. Winslow lias immor
talized her name by this luvaluble article
and we sincerely believe thousands ef cl.il
ren have been saved from an early grave by
its timely use, and that millions yet unborn
will share its benefits, and unite in callinir
her blessed. No mother has discharged
her duty to her suffering little one. in our
opinion, until she has given it the benefit of.

THE EQUITABLE LIFE j
lliO BROADlVAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nualXew Ilusiness has been larger than that of any other
Company in the worhl, i due. in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa OUAFiAXTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, "old and
new, throughout the United States,
After the policy has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable Life has paid feinco its organ
