REPLY TO SENATOR WILSON'S
DENIAL THAT GRANTS
DRINKS.
Honorably and Dear Sir: You havo
thought propor to address mo through tho
public papers. I thoroforo feel it to bo
my duty to reply to you in tho samo man
ner.
Wo havo known each other for tho last
quarter of n century as outspoken ad
vocates of tho prohibition by law of tho
manufacture, and sale, as a beverage, of nil
intoxicating drinks. It was on this ac
count that I called on you several times,
in tho winter of 1S7'J, with a viow to induce
you to accept tho nomination of tho tin.
tional Prohibition Party us their candidato
for President of thu United States. Our
conversation' related to public men, to
public measure; and of course, to Presi
dent Grant who was then seeking, a ho
Is now, by public appeal to the American
people, to bo re-elected to tho first public
otlico In tho land.
In ono of thoio conversations hold in
your own room, open to thu public in
Washington, without any intimation on
that subject on my part, you, honorable
Sir, startled mv with thn rotuark :
"President Grant drinks too much."
After a moment's pause you added : "I
havo told him so.''
Another brief pauso ensued, when you
again added : "The President smokostoo
much. Ho is poisoned through and
through. When I remonstrated with him
about it, tho President laid to mo 'I
smoke mild cigars.' 'That may be, Mr.
President, I replied, 'but you smoko so
muny of them.1 ''
These, Senator Wilson, aro tho exact
words usod bv you on that occasion. You
cannot havo forgotten them. It is of no
use for you to deny tliem. rs either can it
bo denied that Hon Wm. E. Dodge, of
New York, and other gentlemen devoted
to tho temperance reform, havo sought to
induco President Grant to sign tho pledge
of total abstinence.
In giving thi statement of yours to our
countrymen, Mr. Senator, you'havo known
me many years, aro well aware turn l am
actuated bv no other desirn than toco
what I can to aid tho voters of America to
arrive at riuht conclusions with regard to
their duty toward thu men who solicit their
votes. Your statements to me, honorablo
Sir, respecting tho drinking habits of
I'resiuent urant aro oi suen a nature as to
render it imperative that I should give
them to the public I havo. therefore,
given your statements to tho press, in
answer to n call mado on mo by a gentle
man nnd man of honor, a on and i Mr,
and tho parties wo both represent, must
abido by tho result.
Allow mo to, reply, in conclusion, to the
opinion you volunteer in your loiter to
me, as to tho cliaractur ot tnu ottier lacts l
adduced in my published letter to Mr.
Yerrington. Evory ono of theso facts, Sir,
is literally ana strictly true, ah oi tiicm
are furnished to inn by gentlemen whoso
words r.o ono will Uaru dispute. Uno oi
them was handed to mo by a moU disting
uished United States bontttor, who you and
I, Sir, know very woll, In a letter addres
sed to him by a scholar of known reputo
in Cambridge, Mass. And you, Mr. Sena
tor, confess to tho truth of your own state
ment to me with regard to tho well-known
drinking habits of President Grunt, by ad
mitting, in thu letter to which 1 am now
replying, thas ho uses liquor, us a boverago,
to such an extent that yon say you had a
mind to ask him to sign tho total absti
nence pledge, and join tho Congressional
Temperance Society.
I rnsneetfiillv submit that, bv thesn con
fessions, you havo cslubliehed my wholo
case.
I avail myself of tho opportunity to ndd
that when utiy responsible citizen, directly
authorized to speak for President Grant,
publicly denies tho truth of tho statements
us to his drinking habits mado by me,
immof, places, und dates will bo produced.
I am prepared to maintain tho ox net truth
of every word 1 havo stated.
I remain, Mr. Senator, your obedient
servant,

NESOTA. HIS statement of the affair.
From thu St. Paul Prei, September 0.
Yesterday Mrs. Bobolink, tho mother
of tho Indian murdoror, catnu down to St.
Paul nnd had nn interview with her ton
at tho rounty jail. Tho mooting was
marked with it good deal of display offer
ing on tho part of both, and apparently
tho feeling was real, lloth shed toars
freely and sobbed vlolontly. Thoy sub
sequently calmed tholr feelings and llobo
llnk told his story to his mother, whilo
Allen Jordan sat on thu floor in ono cor
ner of tho room, writing down what was
said Tbo following is
IIOIIOHNK'S STATEMENT.
Last spring, in March, my brotbor-ln-law,
Shar-BoiWaze, nnd mysulf, started
out West hunting ; after camping out six
or seven nights I left him and wont to
tho sugar camp and stayed thrco nights,
and went back with ono man and a boy :
when I left my partner and did not find
him whore I loft him, nnd campod thcro
ono night with two follows, nnd nox morn
ing wo started out in ono direction, went
n little way, and turned back, and I
camped out alono ono night on my way
back toward Oak Lako. Next morning I
did not fcol woll, and started out, traveling
very slowly; in tho afternoon I saw Half
Solo trapping, nnd had totno talk with
him about tho camp. Ho told mo thera
was n boy at tho camp, and I wont thero
nnd got something to cut. They gavo mo
four'muskrat skins for n pair of mittens,
and tho boy started out a littlo way with
mo and turned back. Ueforo I left my
homo at Leech Lake, my brother, Flat
mouth, tho bend chief of the Pillager band,
Iind a talk with me, nnd told mo to tell
the whltos that my father had had pcaco
with them always. And now (said ho) I
want you to tell tho whites to let my
nephotv go freo. I want him to draw my
annuities just as soon us I sco tho Indian
agent. I want him to say what ho thinks
ot this matter. I think tho Indians hung
at llralnerd had no fair trial ; they don't
know whothcr they wcro guilty or'not.
Mr. Flatmoutb, in a communication
to tho prisoner says ho wants to havo
peace with tho whites oil tho time, and
subscribes himself "Truly yours, Flut
mouth, leading Chief of tho Pillagers."
1 went along toward Oak Laku. In tho
evening 1 selected a camping plies. I
wont over to Mr. Cook's to buy npleco of
bread with tho four muskrai skins. I
went into tho house, nnd said "How do
you do?-' Mr. Cook told me to go oil". Mr.
book told Ilobolink ho had been thero tho
day beforo trying to soil rat-skins, but ho
safd it was" not him. "You camo hero
yesterday and scared my wifo and my
ehlldreniand I wont you to leave," and I re
ceived a blow from his foot which knocked
me down ; ho then took a stick, and beat
me with it. I don't know how long I laid
there, nnd finally I got up and went to a
buggy which was standing thoro and got
Into It and sat thero thinking about it.
My tempor was increasing nil tho timo, so
I mado up my mind to go to mv camp. I
got my gun and pistol a flvo shooter, and
went hack to look s. as soon as x got
thero I was pretty mad, and shot Mr.
Cook with my gun, which was a sinjrlo
barrel. Ho did not full and I shot him
with my pistol and he fell to tho floor, and
tho woman camo out from the bed-room
and I shot her all tho tlmo on tho out
side. Thoy both died right thore, and I
wont into tho houso and killed tho thrco
young ones with my knifo and thoy novcr
cried. Tho reason I killed tho family was
because ho commenced on mo first. After
killing them I left, but wont back, think
ing I ought to cot something ; but l got
no money and took clothes which I had
when arrested. I novcr took spoons or
pistols; only tho clothes. I then set fire
to tho houso and went away, and this is
tho straightcst story I havo told boforo my
mother, who camo down to learn tho
truth ; and she will go back and tell my
friends what 1 havo said, but 1 do hopo
my annuity monoy from thu Pillogor band
will got me clear. A good many strangers
havo como to see inn, but my mother has
mado mo cry for tho first timo. I did not
crv bocaubo I was afraid, but I cried be-
cnupn I saw my mothor feel so bad.

his cigars contentedly in the newly re

likely tho work will bo begun until Mor-

(Wa.hlnjfton Special to Chicago Time-, tith.)
Frank Howard, iift'aj Bill Forrester,
was arrested hero on yesterday, on sovurHl
charges, ono of Ilium being that ho kuuw
some thing ot tho rtuiiian murder, mid
was takon to Now York to-iiMit. Chief
of Police Richards, of this city, after Ins
arrest, charged him with being Forrester.
Tho prisoner replied that it was no uso
now denying tho fact, sincu thoy hud tho
points so fine on him. Ho hud been hunt
ed down liho a dog, and ho was tired of it.
Ho would huvo given liimselt up long ago
wore It not for tho fact that ho had es
caped from prison in Jolict, Illinois, twice,
and onco in the State of Michigan. Af
ter thu examination ho tho prisonor), was
placed in n coll at tho huadquurtor, and
tho police authorities of Nuw York noti

A NEW rilASE OF THE QUESTION.
In 'Old and Now,' for Soptember, is tin
article on "Ghosts and Ghost Seeing," by
F. W. Clark, which puts a now phaa
upon tho phenomena ot Spiritualism :
Tho person believing, or wishing to bo
llevo in Spiritualism at tho outset, is all
tho timo looking for visions, und con
sciously or unconsciously, trying to oxcilo
them ; and nut knowing what thoy arc,
ascribes thera to spirits.
Tho powor thus acquirod Is ot first ex
orted for tolf, then for friends, then for
friends' friends, and finally tho possessor
of it becomes a public "souing medium."
Suppose, now, it beliovor hud a "soanco"
with such a person. Tho medium sees
curtain forms surrounding tho client, and
describes them vaguoly ; for instanco,
thoro is seen an old man with gray hair, u
littlo girl, or a smiling infant tho naturo
of tho spirit desired often being suggested
by tho visitor. Thus tho latter wishes
to know if his or her mother, or father or
brother, or some other rulativo is prosunt,
und tho medium bccs as required. Mean
whilo. unconscious v. thn believer catrerlv
fills out in his or Iiur own mind tiio de
tails which aro not brought into tho me
dium's description, and finally goes away
sattsiied witn ttio "spiondid tests ' received
and tho beautiful languugo heard.
Now, I do not wish, in tills connection,
to bo regarded as condemning Spiritual
ism. Thu subject is so many sided and
firoicnls so muny curious phasos that a
tasty condemnation of tho wholo from tho
examination of a elnglo set of phenomena
would bo in tho highest degreo rash. My
desire hero is meroly to show that tho see
ing of supposed spirits needs no spiritual
hypothesis whatovor tonccountfor it; such
hypothesis being rather a hindrance thnn
nn uld. It seems to mo, however, it may
appear to my readers that all gomiino
cases of "ghost seeing" may bo referred to
tills peculiar affection of tho oyo sensorial
vision and may bo clussod directly with
tho ordinary flashes of color which all per
sons muv produco at will. Possibly, also,
tho torribio visions of tho drunkurd, of tho
opium outer and of tho fovor patient, may
bo classed In tho samo category. What
ovor tho direct optical causo of thorn may
bo, it is hardly rcusonablo to bollovo tha
phonomona which aro controllabloby will,
or productlblo by illnoss or by poisonous
drugs, can bo ascribed to active, indepen
dent lntolligonco .outsido of tho moor's
brain.
A UOMANTIU STORY.
Tho Jersey City 'Journul'' tells tho fol
lowing romantic story s
Onu of those singular coincidences
which occasionally happen, und soom al
most beyond tho gaugo of possibility, oc
curred in this city on Wednesday evening.
On that nvonlng William Thompson und
a fow of tho crow of tho sailing ship
Macedonia, recently arrived at the port of
Now York from Canton, China, camo
ovor to Jersey City. They woro woll
supplied with money, and consequently
got verv drunk. Thompson being the
most under tho influouco, lay down on a
door stop and fell asleep. At a lato hour
tho next morning ho awoko with a start
for ho hoard tho sound of a volco which
was strangely familiar. Rubbing his oyes
and looking around him ho found himself
In a neatly furnished room, and sitting
near thn window was Maggio Kcaburn,
tho girl whom ho hod parted with eight
years boforo in tho city of Mon
troso, Scotland. His surprise wns
overpowering, nnd "My God,
Moggie, " Is that you?'' burst from his
lips, and broughtMagglo to his Me. Ho
was soon convinced lliatslio was real llcsh
and blood. In answer to his inquiries as
to how ho got thoro ho was informed that
iiho heard his volco at tho door, and knew
it at once. With tho assistance of hor fa
ther and brother ho was takon into tho
houso and put to bed. Thompson says that
during his reckless, ovontful life, many
strange things havo happened to him, but
that his last adventure boats them all. In
18C1 ho parted with Mngglo In tho city of
.Montrose, bound lorUnllao. iiopromi'cd
to marry hor when ho returned from tho
voyage, bttt ho forgot all about his be
trothed. Slnco then ho has been in most
pnrti of tho world, but never wroto n lino
to his faithful Scotch lassie. Tho singu
lar manner in which their meeting has
boon brought about may lead to some result.
THE DYING DOMINICAN.
FATHER TOM DURKK AT THE POINT OF
DEATH.
From the Nctv York World, Sept. (1.1
The announcement that Futhor llurko.
tho Dominican priest, would lecturo last
evening, nt tho academy of music for tho
bouefit of tho institution of mercy, was tho
means of colicctlnir it number of nooiilu
who woro anxious to hear him ; but to their
disappointment tho academy was closed,
owing to tho illness of tho lecturer, whoso
recovery for tho past two du n has boen
almost despaired of. Father Jiurko, after
returning irom a cull on .Monday night,
was prostrated by n severe attack of hem
orrhage of tho lungs, and afterward with
cholera morbus, which tended to irritate
his first complaint. Thu best medical
skill of tho city was immediately scut for,
nnd, owing to the united ell'orts of thu doc
tors, tlieru aro somo hopes that ho may re
cover. Thu causa of his severe imd'tud
dun illness is attributed to overwork, and
it is deemed necessary by the reverend
gentleman's friends that lio ciincol all en
gagements to lecturo until he has entirely
recovered. Fatter Rurko was sent to this
country u few months since by the general
of his order in Rome us tbo visitor-general
of tho Dominican order in America.
Slnco his nrrival in this country ho has
delivered in ono hundred and llfty days,
in addition to his dutie., ono hundred and
sixty-two lectures and one hundred and
forty-nlno sermons. Ho has also at
tended carefully to tho publication of his
book of sermons, which was issued a few
weeks since Owing to his immenso pop
ularity among tho Catholic portion of tho
community his illness has been kept-se
cret, and consequently tew persons outsido
tho clergy weru awaro that he was so neur
death.
WILL HLAINE DENY?
(From tho New York World.)
It is nearly u month sinco a full circum
stantial account appeared in tho public
prints of ono of tbo most scandalous tran
sactions over alleged to havo been consum
mated, oven in this day ot great tbinus in
rascality. This story charges on sundry
members of Congress, including Ulaine,
Wilson, Routwell, und others, that thev
took largo bribe from tho Credit Mobile to
secure tho interest of tho Union Pacific
Railroad. Not ono nuthentlc denial
of tho charge has yet been made. What
does lilulho emphatically deny? Does
ho deny that Oukcs Ames
mado out this list? Or does
ho admit tho authenticity of tho list, and
cuarge uakes Ames with slander und liilso
hood in putting his name on it. Vuguo
telegrams invoking Heaven to witness and
all that sort of thing will not moct this
case. -No ono but lihunu has evor attempt
cd to meet tho charge. It must bo met.
WIFE MURDER IN ARKANHAS.
(I- rom the Leavenworth Commercial, stpt. 0.)
Dr. Chnse, of tho Kansas 'Farmer,' who
