The Morey Matter.
Nbw York, Not. 19. The grand jury
held a prolonged session to-day and con
siderable interest was manifested as to
whether any actiou would be taken by
them in reference to persons implicated In
the Morty letter and Philp libel proceed

done by the grand inquest, so far as can be
ascertained, by legal procedure. There are
no developments in the Philp libel proced

been hi-t custom for years, by paying a
visit with his wife to his uncle, Thomas
Gardeld, at Marrensville, this county, aged
79, whose birthday falls on the same date.
The reunion was purely an informal family
party. About seventy relatives and im
mediate friends were present. After four
o'clock dinner Gen. and Mrs. Garfield visit
ed a relative ia this city, where he was
called upon by a large number of citizens
of the neighborhood, although his coming
wks not generally known. In the evening
he went home to Mentor.

A Heavy Failure.

to John Mc Williams and P.. W, Kenyon.
This is the heaviest failure ever known ia

from $350,000 to $300,000. The Hassacks
are large grain dealers and are said to owe
nearly everybody in this vicinity, and their
failure causes great dismay. It is esti

AN OPEN LETTER TO GENERAL GAR.
General Garfield and Don Piatt are old
time friends. General Garflold ii presi
dent elect of the American Republic and
Don Piatt is tho editor ot a leading repub
lican newspaper, published at Washington,
called the "Capital." On the 15th inst.,
Mr. Piatt published an open letter to Gen
eral Garfield, which caused quite aflutter
of excitement in Washington political cir
cles, and which will prove as interesting to
the readers of Tub Bullrtin as any local
matter we could present in ita stead this
morning. The letter was based opo tbe
friendship which ho so long existed be
tween two gentlemen.ond because that
friendship was generally known, the lettor
wu a general theme of conversation in
Washington hotel lobbies on Monday. It
ii quite lengthy too lengthy, in fact, in its
entirely tor these columns, but we present
a few ot Its moat salient points :
"M y Doar General : Now that this sense
lew political row is over, and you are presl-
dent clcct, I venture, before you arc buried
in that mansion, through this thick walls
and plate glass of which no word of truth
ever reaches the incumbent, to write you a
few words in tho same intimate and fricud.
ly spirit that marked our intercourse whoa,
both occupied a cheap boarding house;
when I carried my fortunes on the slender
tip of my pen as it newspaper correspon
dent, and you sought to support your.selt
aud family on the niragcr pay of a con
gressman. I go back to the time when
you gladly accepted my aid and sym
pathy in your troubles aud my heartfelt
congratulations in your triumphs, and I
yours. I feel more anxiety about you, my
fiiend, now that you are fortunate, than in
tho darkest hour of your life, when life it
self seemed so horrible that an escape from
it was a ternptatiou. You have passed from
the hands of friends to the keeping of
enemies, to play the purt of chief executive
tor four years."
Mr. Piatt then tellrf Gennral Unrticld that
ho is not only no politician, but that ho U
hated by tho politicians, and that history
never has, and probably will never put on
record such, an infamy as that upon which
he was elected. . He adds:
"We have among us certain persons who
are ocnt on dunging the form ot our pros
cut government. They seek to make the
presidency a life tenure, and under the
name of a stronger government escape the
return ol power to the people, lou know
tho man who is to serve their purpose in
tho treasonable scheme. They bank upon
his military record and suppo-cd popular
ity." The writer then warns Mr. Garfield
against the politicians, who are determined,
as he has indicted, to chango the form of
government, and hopes that he wilt have
nothing to do with them, except looking to
breaking their power. In this he uses the
following language, which has attracted
more attention than any other part of the
'It was your committee that investigated
that national shame called 'Black Friday,'
wherein Fisk, Gould nnd Grant sought
through a use ot the national treasury to
enrich themselves at the expense ol thous
ands of honest men. It ia not my purpose
to recall the details of that infamy. The
chief criminal was traced to the threshhold
ot the executive mansion, and your com
mittee passed a resolution calling upon tho
president to appear before tho committee
and defend himself from the damning
proof that made him tho chief conspirator.
The night of the day that the resolution
was passed you called with it upon the
president. It was alter midnight before you
left the white house, amazed and Eick at
heart, and at your suggestion that
very day the resolution was revoked.
I need not say that you and I know why
that resolution was so suddenly abandoned.
The fact that under the circumstances the
order was revoked, tells the whole story.
The very democrats of the committee
' The letter closes with these strong words :
"But you are not a great man. You read
in your library of heroic achievements.
Your soul swells over the poetic expressions.
You are full of thought and impluse, and
all ends in support of men you despise and
a party with which you have nothing in
The letter is earnestly writtcu. Colonel
Piatt's relations have beeu very intimate
with General Garfield and because
ot that intimacy he probably has
the right to advise earnestly. But the bar
gain at Mentor destroyed Garfield's power
to cut loose from the "Imperialist" crowd,
He will be compelled to "swing on the
same gate" with them all through his term,
ana to assist in the third-term scheme at
the close ot it.
The letter does excellent service in show
ing up the infamies of the administration
which the ablest republican leaders tried
to reinstate, and propose yet to fasten on
tho country. It also discloses how actu
ally near and threatening imperialism has
become, when a leading republican editor
in his earnest manner warns a republican
president elect against it.
