Ok the surviving friends and counselors
of Abraham Lincoln, none, says the New

There is a probability that there will be
no election in Indiana in October. It will
be remembered that the amendments to the
constitution, changing the date of the elec
tion for state officers from October to No
vember, were adopted by a large majority,
and that the supreme court of the state de
cided that the amendments had not been
lecallv adopted. The decision was made

THE DE GOLYER JOB.
T11E FACTS A9 JUDICIALLY DETEuHISED
New York Sun.
Arriving from St. Louis on" Saturday, I
went to the clerk's office of the circuit court
lor the purpose of examining the records
and papers in the celebrated Chittenden, De
Golyer & Co. contract suit, and believing
that the numerous readers of your excel
lent paper would like to know the facta as
disclosed by the evidence, I give them as
they appear from the papers and records in
the case. The style of the case is George
R. Chittenden against Robert McClellan et
al., No. 12,181, circuit court, Cook county,
Ou the 19th day of June, 1874, Emory A.
Storrs filed a declaration in writing in said
court, ahking for 1160,000 against I)c Gol
yer & Co., as Chittenden's share of the
profits arising but of the contract which
De Golyer A Co. had with the bourd of
public works, of the city of Washington.
Da Golyer & Co. employed ex-Senator Doo
little as their attorney. Doolittlo filed an
answer in the case, setting up as a defense
That the contract was void upon its
face. 2. That the contract was void as
against public policy, U-caune of the 3,000
paid James A. Garfield, a member of con
grcss, for liis influence as a congressman in
getting the board of public works at Wash
ington to give Do Golyer 6i Co. the con
tract. On the 10th of June,
1875, nn order was made by tlio
court upon Morrs to reply or de
mur to the answer. Storrs demurred; full
(tearing was had upon the demurrer, and

peal was taken, and Storrs did not reply to
ihu answer. Judgment was entered up id
favor of tho defendants, and the case as ap

vault. A certified copy of the pleadings
in that case would make a powerful cam
paign document against Garfield. Storrs
knows that, and thinks he will keep them
out of the W3y; but Senator Doolittlo has

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
1X0 BROADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen years its average an
nual Xew Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is dne, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits

equitable claim exists.

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 since its organ
ization to January 1st, 18J!0, 51,882,730, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
