wai not. on the repular programme of
eotertilnmwnt, last oii'bt at the reception

poi-.bly have Iniameil that they were at a
gsnuiiie Mex can fandango or an old time
ball rn ihe T xan frontier. There was
certainly blood on the face of the moon aud
It was on y the timely Interference of
friends that preveuted bat certainly would
have been a very diru'rnceful fracas.
When the toast "Mexico and Minouri"
was proposed by M r. Tnoi. S. Hoj;an.
senator James McGrath stepped forth with
a I the dignity of au old Roman to respond.
He mounted the rostmn that bad been
temporarily erected and let loose bis ba'tery
of rhetor o. Dunn the course of his re
marks he said the time must come when
the p r ttlual fjjg of Enirland would be
stilpped from the tonmaot of every mer
nliamman plou.'binz the sea, and the stars
and stripes of the land it the free take its
place. When this remark wns uttered,
Mr. And w Warren, wr.o was standing off
In one corner with some friends In a i-ort of
listle's attitude, pricked up bis ears and
glared with eves of fire at the burly form
of the elnquent Senator.
"I object to inch an Insulting allusion,"
exclaimed M . Warren.
'If quiet," said one of bis frlen-l.
"W ait umil be i luroujjh and then you cn
have your say. "
Mr. Warren waited, and almost, before
the fcuo of Senator MeUratb's last wortll
had died a av, be w as ou the roiirum him
self. "G otlemen," he iried, "the allusion to

He stepped down; the senator's face ifrew

"Then you would do a damned fool

"I would, would If Well, Tou take

At this crisis frienus rushed to the rescue,
Mr. Cat HI mepped around and besought
the gentleman to be ctitu, but to no avail.
The hurly Senator w b thii time fully

Boston, Nov. 15. Mrs. Lucy 8mltti
Daniels, a handsome woman on tbo sunny
side of 40, appealed in the Probate court
to-day and asked that her husband, a
wealthy cooper of over TO years, be ad
judged iuiane, and that a guardian bt ap
pointed to take charge of his estate. The
case has created a decided sensation. The
parties reside at No. 59 Harvard street la
this city, and a.e highly connected and well
known. Both were married previously and
had offspring by both marriages, the hus
band being the father of four grown
children, and she has two boys. It
la to the lnt rferetice of the old man's child
ran, In a great measure, to which tbe diffi
culties and dissensions woioh have clouded
their present union, are charged. Mrs.
Daniels was on the stand nearly all (lay.
She testified that Mr. Daniels of late bad
ueiilected to make proper provision for his
family, and was cruel and abusive in bis
treatment ot them. He would Insist on
morning and evening servicei, and would
con. pel ber to read alternate
passages of scripture to blm until she
was fairly worn out and sinking from
exhaustion. One ot bis Idiosyncrasies was
to repet tbe same prayer three times
morning, noon and night and this he con
tinued during a period of two years. Tbey
bad a number ot servant girls changing
them very often and on one occasion Mrs.
D nieli caught blm bulging one of tbem In
tbe kitchen. The tint event that re ally led
ber to believe that ber husband was In
sane was be proposed to
transfer all bis property, cut ber off
without a dollar and turn ber out of
the house. This was in September, 1882,
and since that time be has persistently
harassed ber. On one occassloa be tried
to drive ber out of tbe bouse. Sua tint
became acquainted withMr. Daniels through
in advertisement for a situation as house
keeper. She had been previously married
to Heury Jacobs and aas divorced from
him. She la not certalu whether
Jacobs la living or not, but thinks
be is dead. Mr. Daniels olaims Ibat bis
wife has treated him badly and baa at
tempted to cboke and scald blm. Not lik
ing tbe manner In blch bis wife's children
by ber tint husband quartered upod blm,
he made a conveyance ot all bl estate to
bis son, George Daniels, In trust for the
benefli of hlit (Mr. Daniels') children, sub
ject lo Mrs. Daniels' rlv-bt of dower. The
cast wi oontluued until December 13. .

upon tbe nation a stain which has heei
a ' disyraue to us and the civilized

of supporters and millions of money. Con
verts In larva numbers are being conducted
to ibis country from the pauper districts ol
Europe, while missionaries are constantly
employed in tbe South misleading tbe poor
and ignorant. Children are brought h''r
from abroad to be educated in the Infamout
practices of the saints and elders, and thi
church which was founded in deceit and
superstition U dally gaming enormotu
power and influence. The world cries out
against such progress, and in tbe namt
hunnuity, home and com

members thereof, and si a ennse
quence it remains for tho people at largi
to tbrott e tbe evil in ihe best manner pos

their representatives in Congress have fail

Mormon riders has sign fled its intentiot
to be at Washington this winter for th(
purpose of uefeating bills introduced loi
the legulation of polygamy. A great dea
of money w ill be spent, and If there is not t
popular upris.ng against fie obnoxitui
teacningi and practices of tbe Monitors,
Congress will, no doubt, again re
fuse to recognize the evil anc
nothing will be done to eradicate It. Ix
view of this, the National League for ID

urgently r quesis petitions to bp circulate
in every city, town and school district in tut

All Honor to Ihe Ladles of Mncou.
ATI.. ma, Ga., Nov, 15. A sei.satiot
has been precipitated upon tbe coinniUi.it
by tbe refusal of tbe ladies of Mncou to ap
pear in tbe Atlantic musical festival rvitt
the cornet player. Leay. For severa'
months preparations have been under way
for a great musical festival, Euoh of tin
cities of Georgia was to furnibt

Tbe most smpcrtant delegation was thai
which nas to come from Macon. Lrvy wai
aiso engsi-ed to appear. This morning th
Constitution published the Pittsburg In
terview of a uewpapT reportei
with Levy, wherein the latter spnk
heartlessly of his abandoned wife Id Fn
gittiul. But tbe worst sting was w hen Levy
said he a-also saff from Mrs. Tearle, ai
by ber own bcIioii she bad placed a brand
of Illegitimacy upon their children, so no
be was tree from tbe whole butch.
Tha expie-sion aa spokeu smacked
o much of the heartless libertine
that It raised a perfect furor among tbi
ladles, who questioned whether tbey wen
to appear on social terms witb such a man.
The ladies of Macon canvassed the msttei
energetically and came to a decision
unanimously that they would not appeal
unde the same roof with such a man, and
ttle'.-rapued Manager Doepp at Atlanta,
th.s af trnnoii, that tne would uo: come.
"Not foi all the money In the wond,"
aid one charming little lady, us she bit aei
lips and stumped her toot "w ould I ap
pear upon t"e stage with a Man who would
talk s ' of his abandoned wife and pom

among ladies. Levy wilt be here to-nior-row.

OtskOo, Kov, 15. Iu IStf.l Adam Gray
whs a (armor near Galway, Saratoga coun
ty, and in his employ was a rough, uucoott
Ian uer named John Laurie. After work
ing a few IUO.it list, Laurie, suddenly disap
peared, and u little chest belonging to Gray
containing Jl,0 in State money and aboul
,liW worib of Jewelry, including an heirj
loom or two, was missing simultaneously.
Y' sierday Mrs. Thomas Martin of Otsego,
who in 1So3 was Miss Ada Gi ay, received
tbe following letter, which had been for
warded here from Gaiway:
"Miss Gray I kant liv much longer and
I must tell yu the sekret. Twenty yerei
ago I stole the box wat belonged to yuere
father and bid it under the north side uv
the big oke tree, w bare you had the Sunday
school picnick that yt-re. Am awful sorry,
but all I kan do now is tu tell yu. Hope
yu will forgiv mo. I am (lien of consump
shun and cood not die unit. I told yu. Yi
will find everything Just as yu left it."
'Signed) "Jons Lavrie."
The letter wai dated Mouterey, Mex.,
and inquiries as to the health of tbe poor,
conscious-stricken fellow have been lent
thither. Laurie must have had somekword
fiora this section and learned ot Mr. Gray's
death, or else be would have directed bis
letter to him. To-day t.ie box was found
at the place Indicated! The stato bids, ol
course, are woitbless, but tbe heirlooms
and watch once worn by Mr. Gray, which
were fouml In good coudltiou, are highly
prized by Mrs. Martin.

Nkw Yohk, Nov. 15. David Van Arns
dale, a veteran of tbe war of 1913. and tbe
son of the soldier who, on the evucna'lonof
New York by the British troops, November
S3, ITi-3, climbed tbe flag-staff on the Bat
tery with the flag-balyard In bis teeth, and,
tearing down tbe British flag, wbicb bad
been nailed to tbe staff, replaced It with
tbe American colors, died yesterday at his
home, No. 444 East One hundred and
tweiity.fi' st street, where he bad lived for
tlu pat twenty-two yean. He was born
In tiiis city September 1, 1796 and was
tnarri. d Auril 8, 1824, to Min Jane Wilson
M'i ay, who died In 1S60. He had only
one child, Mrs. Mary E. Forbes, who sur
vives him. On tbe breaking
out of the war of 1812 In com
pany with his father. 8wbo hadSs-rved
as a soldier throui-b the entire revolution,
be Joined the artillery regiment known as
"Old 'Td " After the end of the war he
gave up bis business as a sailmsker and en
gaged as mate on a coasting vessel plying
between New York and tbe West Indies.
While thus employed be twlcesuffered cap
ture by pirates, but escaped. His list rea
cue was effected by the United State brig
Enterprise, wblcb vessel be Joined and
served as a sai.or for a ihort time. During
lis g-rvlce In tbe navy he met with an accl
Jent from the unexpected discharge ot a
cannon, whereby be lost a part of
his scalp and was rendered bald for the
rest of bis life. In 1S37, under the ad
ministration of Martin Van Buren, he wai
appo.tmd to a position In tbe Custom
In wblcb service be remained until his
death. "Uncle David," as be wai af
fectionately called by his associates, acted
as night Inspector of customs for many
years, but on the completion of the new
barge office he was made Janitor, his ad
Vniiced age having incapacitated him for
the active work required of him in
bis former position. It was always
a source of pride to him that up to three
weeks ago, when hn was prostrated
by ti.e aii.tcs of billnui malarial fever
whk-h caused death, he had scarcely ever
been absent from his duties, he having al
ways refused lo take Ihe yearly fourteen
da' vacation. Since 1848 be has always,
on evacuation day, hoisted the American
flag on the battery flagstaff, using, up to
its destruction by fire at Barnum's Museum
the flag original y boisted by his father.
One of hi most earnest wisbei was that bis
life be prolonged that be might be enabled
to perform this duty it the approaching

it is supposed, somewhere about the mon

aware of the lasting resting place ot the

When the removal was made the face and
