GENERAL JONATHAN HASKELL.
TIE IS A WOLF IN SlIEEl'S CLOTUES IF ONE
OF THE "ARMY" IS TO BE BELIEVED.
We yesterday got into conversation with
a "male member" of General Haskell's sal
vation army, who in the course of his talk
told some things not altogether complimen
tary to the General. He said his name was
Ferdinand White, and he had joined the
army at St. Louis ou August Cth.
Reporter "And why did you join it?"
White "Well, sir, Haskell advertised in
the St. Louis papers for a man with a small
capital, and did not forget to state iu glob
ing terms that it could be profitably invest
ed in a pleasant business, etc. I had been
out of employment for some tune; was
anxious for souithing to do, and having fif
ty dollars in my possession, concluded to
call on him and ascertain what offer he had
to make, and if agreeable, to accept it.
Haskell told me he wanted a man to take
charge of the lemonade stand, and that if
I wanted the job ho would pay mo thirty
dollars per month, provided I would deposit
my fifty dollars. Having nothing better in
view, I accepted the offer and he drew up a
contract which he signed, and in which he
acknowledged the receipt of my money.
Here it is :
He reached into his coat pocket and
drew therefrom the following contract
which, we saw at a glance, was written by
the General's own hand :
St. Louis, Aua. 6, IStSO.
This is to certify that I, Jonathan S.
Haskell, of the city of St, Louis, for and
in consideration ot the sum ot titty dollars
this day loaned me by Ferdinand White,
for the term of (30) thirty days from date,
I have this day employed said White to
take control of my lemonade and refresh
ment stand connected with the Railroad
Tabernacle, at a salary of thirty dollars per
month, to be paid at the end of each month,
and for the repayment of said fitty dollars
$30 loaned the Said Haskell lias this
day executed, signed and delivered oue note
of hand, due thirty days after date.-payable
to said White, the receipt of which he
hereby acknowledges. Whereto witness
our mutual signatures.
Jonathan S. Haskell.
After we had read the contract Mr.
White continued : "I had full confidence
in thuj man and went to work. I stood in
the lemonade stand for two days taking
in two dollars and a quarter in that time,
and on the third day Haskell asked mo if I
would not go on the platform with the
army aud sing. I told him I had no ob
jection and accordingly became "one of
theiu"' Haskell then employed another
man a Mr. Wuldie to take my place, from
whom he obtained seventy live dollars, but
he had charge of the stand only a few days
when Haskell employed a Mr. Griffith
whom he relieved of one hundred and
eighty dollars. I have not seen a cent of
my money since it has passed out of my
hand and don't expect to. lie has treated
the other men as he did mo. He paid Mr.
Griffith tiive dollars at one time and one
dollar at another, bnt besides this lie has
returned none of the money he has borrow
ed. He also obtained thirty dollars from
a Mr. Tbbison, nn Englishman, who join
ed his army at St. Lonis and who is, I be
leive, a good christian. Mr. T. informs me
that, although he has repeatedly asked
for a return of his money ho has not
rccivedacent and that the only thing
which prevents him from severing his con
nection with the army, is the hope that he
may yet come in the possession of his
money. Mr. Reiser, whoso given name I
have forgotten, joined the army at east St.
Louis and left it a few days afterwards be
ing thirty-five dollars poorer and Haskell
that much richer for him having joined.
Waldie joined the army in St. Louis three
days after I did and put iu seventy-five
dollars while George Burton put in eigh
teen dollars every cent he had and neith
er of these men have had any of their mon
ey returned to them and have reason not
to expect its return."
R. What evidence have you that Has
kell owes you fifty dollars?
W. I have tnis note for the amount. It
is a renewal of the old note, which expired
on the 14th inst., and is worth about as
much as the paper on which it is written.
He handed us the note, which bore the
signature of tho General, and was dated
"Cairo, Ills., Sept. 11, 1880." We asked
him what inducement had been held out
to him and the other men to join tho army,
to which ho replied that Haskell had of
fered to pay every man a salary of from
twenty-five to thirty dollars per month, and
t lut this whs considered better than nothing.
But after learning that they would receive
no salary, and that iu all probability the
money loaned Haskell would not bo re
turned, they made tho best of a bad bar
gain and stayed with him in tho hope that
tho future would develop eomo means by
which tho monies due them could bo ob
tained or until they were able to find ether
employment. Ho had found employment
in this city, and had left the army imrueai
ately upon doing so.
It. Haskell tells tho public that he is a
man of means, and has lett a homo of luxury
to servo Christ,."
W. So he does, but ho is poor as a
church mouse. Ho expected to obtain
means by his present course, but ho is al
ready discovering that ho can not do so.
Two of his girls, Miss Minnie Lashley and
Mrs. Sarah Brandenburg, left him here.
They returned to St. Louis, and the fifur
and drummer intended t leave him to-day.
As I said before, ho has already discovered
that there is but little money in tramping
a crowd of people over tho country, even
though lie cheat the men and women who
serve him, and this discovery seems to have
had tho effect of driving much of his re
ligion out of him. Why, in St. Louis he
used to bo present at every one of our
prayer meetings and role in the sawdust
while ho cried "Amen" and "God grant
it," but of late he hasn't attended one ot
our prayer meetings in a dozen. Ho would
us lief raise a boy in the air by the hair and
call him a as say a prayer any dav.
R Does he p:iy the women of the army
W No, he does not.
R They go with him solely lor tho love
of the Lord!
W Apparently they do, and do not
leave the army because he does not give
them sufficient means to enable them to re
turn homo. They are more to be pitied
than blamed. So far as my observation
extends they are all above reproach and
deserving of better luck thantofa!l into
int) the clutches ot the old sinner.
lie related the charges to us as detailed
in a recent number of the Globe-Democrat
against Haskell by Rev. J. S. Green, and
said that, having been a witness to the en
tire transaction, he was prepared to say
that Rev. Green had spoken nothing but
Admitting that the above statements are
true, Haskell's sincerity is not disproven
by them. We are inclined to regard him
as an enthusiast without any business dis
cretion, who means well enough, but is,pos
sibly, the victim of circumstances.
OUR COUNTY JAIL.
A WALK THROUGH IT BV T1IE COMMITTEE
APPOINTED BV THE WOMAN'S CHRISTIAN
TEMPERANCE UNION WHAT THE LADIES
HEARD AND SAW, RELATED BT "ONE OF
The committee appointed by the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union to ' visit our
prisons is composed of the following ladies :
Mrs. E. C. Ford, chairman; Mrs. G. M.
Alden, Mrs. Wood Rittenhouso and Mrs.
B. Y. George. These ladies visited the
county jail on Friday afternoon,Mi3. George
being absent from the city, Mrs. F. S. Kent
acted in her place.
On arriving at the jail and stating their
mission to Sheriff' Hodges, who is the jailor,
they were cordially received, and after
making the acquaintance of Mrs. Hodges
they were escorted through thedifferent de
partments by that lady, who kindly gave
them all the information desired.
To describe tho feelings of those, who,
for the first time, visit a prison and see the
eyes of the prisoners glaring upon them
through the bars, would be impossible. The
committee was much affected by the sur
roundings, and conversation held with the

band while, all were under the influence cf
liquor. Shall this woman be condemned
by the babbling of a drunken wretch?
In the next cell were two
colored men and a boy, twelve
years old, for larcency. The last one
was occupied by Maggie Williams, a color
ed woman, for attempting to kill a woman.
Interesting papers were given each of these
prisoners, and were gratefully received.
Dinner was served to the prisoners, which
looked good enough for any one and con
sisted of light bread, boiled meat and pota
toes and apple pie. Everything around the
prison was neat and clean, tho halls and
cells nicely whitewashed, and as far as the
power of jailor went, all was in good order.
But such a place for human beings to live
in amidst a Christian mid enlightened com
munity is a crying shame to auy city. The
cells are so dark; the faces of the prisoners
could scarcely be distinguished, and as for
furniture it could not be told what it con
sisted ol. Two 8x10 inch windows.and they
heavily barred, is all the ventilation here
is. The prisoners spoke in high terms
of Mr. Hodges and lady. The
visit of these ladies was very
interesting and profitable to themselves
and it is to be hoped the prisoners wcro
cheered and profited also.
A CAliD FROM CITY ENGINEER
To tbo Editor of tho Biamm:
.In the matter of the opening of the
"Railroad Strip" I desire to call the atten
tion of the public generally, but more es
pecially of the taxpayers, whose interests
are involved to one fact. And that is this:
As a city officer and one who desires to re
spect the material interests of the people, I
publicly protest against the action of the
City Council in revoking the ordinance pro
viding for the opening of a twenty-five foot
street from the north side of Second street
to the south side of Fourteenth, and from
the south side of Second to St. Charles
street. By this action and the substitution
of a new ordinance providing for on in
creased width of twenty-five feet, property
owners along the line of that street are not
only directly affected by nn additional bur
den, but tax-payers generally, since fifty
per cent. of thecanh will ultimately have to
be paid out ot the general fund. And
what is the cause of this? Simply because
Commercial avenue, a public thoroughfare
of tho city, from Sixth street to First is
monopolized by the business of the Cairo &
Vincenncs Railroad. It now becomes a
question with the people of this city wheth
er they will indorse a course which seeks
to convert a public thoroughfare into a pri
vate way and throw public traffic into an
other street, the forced construction of which
must entail additional burdens upon the
Tho operation of tho proposed ordinance
discriminates in this way: It calls for a
twenty-five foot street south of Second and
a fifty foot street north of that. Is there
any fairness in the proposed change? The
interests ot the public demand a fifty foot
street south of Second just as much as
north of it, if that width shall maintain at
This matter is submitted for the benefit
of the public. Their interests shall govern
