"Why should the Garfield Republicans hesi

MR. MORRISON'S CONFESSION.
All advices from Washington are to the
effect that there will be no change in the
tariff at this session of congress. An ap
parently well informed Washington cor
respondent makes the following statement:
"Morrison has just made a confession which
will startle his friends as much as it will amaze
them. He admits that all the work of the ways
and means committee is so much lost time and
that the bill will never become a law. This after
noon a careful estimate of the strength of the
Democratic opposition was made and It is found
to be easily equal to the task of blocking all tariff
legislation for the year. This conclusion is
reached after an actual count, which brings to
light the fact that fifty members of the majority
will vote with the Republicans. Thirty-five
would be enough, so that the fate of the bill is
not involved in much doubt. There is no possi
bility of overcoming this hopeless division."
A CHANCE FOR MORE REFOR3I.
While the copy right of newspaper matter
is under discussion it might be well to sug
gest, if there is to be any legislation, that it
should be extended to another phase of pil
fering which has not yet been mentioned.
There are hordes of newspapers, some of
whom advocate the copy right law, whose
proprietors sit up all night, so as
to able to steal the paid for telegrams of their
contemporaries, and palm them off on the
public as original matter.
Another phase of theft which demands at
tention is the constantly occurring one
in which editorial and other matter, are taken j
bodily and reprinted without credit. There are j
various forms of this branch of theft. One is |
to take a paragraph and republish it
as original. Another is to take matter i
and credit it to an "exchange" or a
"contemporary." This is petty larceny and ;
aneak thievery of the meanest kind and has ;
its origin partly in the fact that the per
son who steals it is a natural thief, and part
ly in a mean envy which forbids him to give
credit to other people.
There is still another matter that needs
attention from criminal reformers. It is
found in the frequent practice of many pa
pers of rewriting and double leading an as
sociated dispatch from Europe and
then heading it "special cable."
This is a species of swindling
that is even meaner than stealing dispatehes
or other newspaper matter. It is a fraud on
the public. It is obtaining money under
false pretenses. It is just as much a confi
dence operation as bunkoing or the check !
racket or any other of the methods resorted j
to by the guild of swindlers.
Now that wo arc in the mood for newspa
per reform, let us have a clean sweep. Let
ail these things which have just been
enumerated be attended to, and after
that let there be some penalty for
editorial lying, misrepresentation and un-
deserved villificatlon. Present company ex
cepted, the newspapers of tbls country do not
hesitate to totally and deliberately lie on all
possible occasions and have thereby earned
the right to be known as the champion liar3
of the universe.
THE INFLUENCE OF SATIRE.
James G. Blaine has putRoscoe Conkling's
portrait in bis book, with a great many oth
ers, more or less distinguished. It is not
believed that he has put into his book, his
pen portrait, or speech portrait of the great
stalwart leader, delivered in the House of
Representatives, some fifteen years ago when
they were both members of that body. This
notably stinging satire has never been for
given by Mr. Conkling, and never will be.
It was to Mr. Blaine a costly price of satire,
and has cost him the Presidency.
Mr. Conkling, notwithstanding his youth
ful "strut" afterwards grew to great political
stature and power, and had he and Blaine
been sworn friends instead of sworn ene
mies, the latter might have reached the goal
of his ambition, now forever beyond his
reach. And more, had Blaine and Conkling
been personal as well as political friends, or
being enemies had not Blaine gone into
Garfield's cabinet, doubtless the latter would
be alive to-day. "It is the unexpected that
often happens." To what huge dimensions
often grow the passing incidents of a day,
the apparently trifling occurrences of an
Blaine's brief, but bitter, stinging satirical
speech upon Conkling, has had a marked
effect upon the political career of them both.
It has no doubt resulted in the assassination
indirectly of a President; it has driven both
Blaine and Conkling into private life; disap
pointed in their aspirations, and with am
bition unsatisfied and blighted. Upon what
a slender thread are oftentimes momentus
consequences hung. The following is the
old time, salient satire of Blaine on Conk
"The contempt of that large minded gentleman
5a so wilting: his haughty disdain, grandiloquent
swell, his majestic, supereminent, overpowering,
turkey-gobbler strut, has been so crushing to
myself that it was an act of the greatest temerity
for me to venture upon a controversy with him.
But, sir, I know who Is responsible for all this.
I know that within the last five weeks, as mem
bers of the house will recollect, an extra strut
has characterized the gentleman's bearing. It is
not his fault. It in the fault of another. That
gifted and satirical writer Theodore Tilton, of
the New York Independent, spent
some weeks recently in this
city. His letters published in that paper em
braced, with many serious statements, a little
jocose satire, a part of tfhich was the statement
that the mantle of the late Winter Davis had
fallen upon the member from Xew York. The
gentleman t6ok It seriously, and it has given
his strut an additional pomposity. The resem
blance is great: it is striking. Hyperion to a
satyr, Thersites to Hercules, mud to marble,
dunghill to diamond, a single cat to a Bengal
tiger, a whining puppy to a roaring lion.
Shade of the almighty Davis, forgive the almost
profanation of that jocose satire."
Ex-Senator Conkiing is out of politics he
says. But give Blaine the nomination
at Chicago and Conkling will get back again
into politics with great celerity, to put the
"Plumed Knight" out of politics. The sure
wav to secure Conkling's aid in electing a
Demcratic President, is for the Republicans to
put Blaine in nomination.
The wrangles, personal bickerings and
contentions in Christian churches, often be
tween the pulpit and the pews, are not only
disgraceful and disgusting, but a shameful
blemish on the Christian name and a profes
sion of religion. Such conflicts are dis
reputable departures from all the tenet teach
ing and inculcated spirit of the New Testa
ment gospel. The world regards with sur
prise, and true Christians with grief the un
godly &pirit often manifested by professors
and pastors, under the guise and in the
abused name of religion.
The following from the New York Observer
is meant as a rebuke to the disgraceful feud
now going on in Dr. Newman's church in
that city. The Observer does not name the
church, but it can mean no other than the
Madison Avenue congregational chnrch,
where a collossal personal fight is raging, a
fight which in spirit and intemperate speech
would dishonor even a partisan set-to in an
electioneering husting. Rev. Dr. Newman
says with lofty scorn he does not care any
thing for the pugnacious assaults of Deacon
Ranney and his compeers, and professes to
look with serene contempt and disdain on
the church affairs.
Dr. Newman, the pastor, ought to care,
and with deepest contrition for the scandal
and reproach which he and his church are
bringing upon the church and the Christian
name. HLs affected sneer at, and attempt
to be-little his internecine church warfare,
does no eredlt to his christian character or
professions of Gospel piety. The following
is what the Observer says about church
wrangles, fights and disension3, and ap
plies with blistering force to Dr. Newman
and his belligerant church,
A true apostle of the Master would retire
from the fight where only dishonor, and not
laurels are to be won, and seek a more
peaceful field of labor. But not so the fight
ing doctor. In the spirit ofja contentious
world, he defiantly holds to his position,
caring not for the wounds inflicted on the
church and religion itself. The Observer
We refer with grief and disgust to the wrang
ling? and fightings at meetings called to promote
the interests of the church. Within a very few
years we have seen accounts of them in ne arly
all denominations, so that we need not be sus
pected of predjudice or partiality in speaking of
them with severity.
In this city they have recently broken out,
and violent wranglings have defiled the sanctuary.
Whence come these fightings? They are the
outcome of poor, unsanctified human nature, of
which there is much in most men who are called
good. One of the highest attributes of a gentle
man Is self-control; and a Christian is snpposed
to have the grace of God to help hin in the
charge of his own soul. But a war of
words, with epithets of abuse and re
proach, is disgraceful, even if the excited parties
do not come to blows. We do not know that
there is any good to come of publicly rebuking it.
As scenes in the Church of England parishes are
often quite as bad as anything on this side of the
water, we cannot attribute our fights in church
to a lower stage of civilization. It is enough to
say they do so in England. But of this we are
certain, that God is offended by such conduct:
and Christians should try and behave themselves
so that the world may know that their profession
of religion is something more than a mere sham.
We do not make mention of instances as they
occur, for we would not spread the scandal. And
we would hope that they will cease from among
men, and no longer grieve the good and provoke
the divine displeasure.
AN OLD MATTER.
The testimony of ex-Postmaster General
James before the Springer committee has
developed some sensational features. One
of the prominent points is James' version in
regard to certain charges made against Gar
field by members of his own party, to the
effect that he owed his election to the star
route crowd, and that he in consequence did
not use his influence to have them prosecut
ed. This is denied by James. He says that
Garfield, although warned that a vigorous
prosecution of the principal offenders might
strike men in high places, and affect many
persons to whom he was under personal obli
gations, directed that a thorough investigation
should be made and the guilty punished, no
matter who were involved.
This version is based on an alleged inter
view between James and some other officials
with Gaifield, and during which a lawyer,
William A. Cook, Is reported to have stated
to Garfield that there was danger in the air,
which menaced the safety of the president.
Mr. Cook explains this statement by saying
that he knew of no particular danger, but
inferred its existence "from the general talk
of the times, from comments of the news
papers, and from the threats reported from
the ordinary channels of gossip," from which
he noted that there was a "very, bitter feel
ing being worked up against the president."
He says that he called the attention of the
president to "onofaot. and that was there
mmmmmmrri-rmn-nrt\ rn ■ -—~ — ——*—~—~ ...... ■ - — ■ * ——, ; ——— -
were a number of western desperadoes in the
regular employ of the star route contractors,
and that considering the high state of ex
citement growing out of the struggle between
the stalwarts and the half breeds some weak
mind might be influenced to do him barm."
President Garfield was shot very
soon after, and hence there rests a
suspicion In the minds of men of the Cook
class that Guiteau was either hired by the
star route men or was driven to the commis
sion of the crime by the sentiment of the
party with which he was affiliated.
The testimony of James aims to show that
whatever may have been the political obliga
tions of Garfield to any of the members of
the star route crowd he did not allow the ob
ligation to stand in the way of his duty.
He certainly did receive aid from
men involved in the 6tar prosecutions,
but there is no evidence pro or con, that he
knew of their complicity. James and Cook
say that he ordered the prosecution the mo
ment the fact as to the swindle was laid be
fore him. He may have been injudicious at
first, but having taken position upon the
matter he was obliged to go ahead after the
supposed real state of the case was laid be
fore him. All the matter is old, and some
of it is fishy. Garfield Is dead, but the dis
closures made by James and Cook are of
interest, perhaps, as going to show, so far as
they may be credited, that Garfield's
memory ought to be relieved from
the aspersions cast on it by
members of his own party. If this testimony
amounts to anything it is cumulative to
establish that Garfield was assassinated
by the party which elected him. Only one
hand struck the murderous blow, but that
hand was nerved and directed by a faction of
the Republican party. It is always charged
that the assassination of Lincoln was the result
of the existence of secession, and it is just
as true that the murder of Garfield was done
by the moral procurement of a portion of the
party which elected him. That he was slain
by the direct agency of the star route crim
inals is not probable; but they had their rep
resentative in Guiteau. That villain levelled
his revolver instigated by the wrath of the
same rascals interested in the star routes
and by the disappointment and rage of the
politicians who found that Garfield would
not act as their mere agent in managing the
affairs of the country. The spirit of rebel
lion slaughtered Lincoln and the spirit of
Republican faction shot down Garfield. Of
the two acts, the latter is by far the least ex
cusable, the most damnable and the one
which should inflict eternal infamy on the
men who were responsible for it.
The Page Assignment.
The voluntary assignment of A. H. Page,
who runs the the French restaurant on St.
Peter street near Fourth was put on record In
the district court yesterday, Frederick C. Ab
bott being the assignee. Mr. Page, who was
formerly head waiter at the Metropolitan,
started his restaurant at a rather in
opportune time when he had to
compete with Magee's new restaurant,
the Cafe Brevoort and the Cafe
Livingston. He endeavored to run a first
class place, but the location which he chose
rendered success with such an establishment
impossible, especially when taken in con nee
tion with the competition he had to contend
with. His failure is not a surprise, having
been expected for some time. It is stated
that the debts of a number of bad customers,
including the late superintendent of malls,
Bosworth, had much to do with precipitating
Northwesterners in Chicago.

Through Shipments of Grain.
It does seem as though a false impression,
when once fastened in the public mind, can
not be removed. The St. Paul and Mani
toba road has stated over and over again that
the farmers of the northwest could ship all
the wheat they pleased through St. Paul and
Minneapolis, to all points east and south of
these two towns, and yet, as strange as it
may seem a convention wa3 held at
Grand Forks some weeks ago, and
ten or twelve men were selected to act as a
committee to come down to St. Paul, consult
with the railroad authorities, and ascertain
among other thing3 if the St. Paul & Mani
toba road would consent to allow wheat to be
shipped through St. Paul and Minneapolis to
the east and south. This was one of the
points the people of Grand Forks and vicin
ity, through their committee, wanted the
road to answer. They really thonght
that wheat could not be shipped east
of St. Paul and Minneapolis. It was
to this committee that Mr. Manuel, the su
perintendant replied saying, thatover 3,000,
000 bushels of the last crop had been shipped
over the St. Paul & Manitoba road to Duluth.
The members of the committee appeared to
be astounded at the announcement, and
looked at each other in great surprise. They
could not understand it. This statement of
Mr. Manuel was followed up by Mr.
Hill, who asked the members of the
committee what they thought
the St. Paul and Manitoba road
built that branch from St. Cloud to Hinckley
for, where it strikes the St. Paul <fc Duluth
road, if it was not to carry wheat to Duluth!
When the committee was asked this ques
tion, the members of it were again surprised.
Even now there are those who cannot un
derstand, or believe that the St. Paul & Man
itoba road will carry wheat through St. Paul
and Minneapolis to points east and
south, notwithstanding the com
mittee that came down to St. Paul
to investigate the matter has published its
report to the world answering the question
in the affirmative. It has therefore become
necessary for the road to publish a circular,
in order to make it plain that it will so trans
port wheat. This is no new thing, but is
simply an authoritative announcement of
what the road has all along been doing. The
following is the circular, and it is hoped that
It is sufficiently clear and unequivocal to
settle the matter.

The Coeur d'Alene Mines.
There seems to be a growing excitement
throughout the east and northwest over the
Coeur d'Alene mines. That there is gold
there in large quantities seems to have been
established. The consequence is there is a
general stampede for Eagle City and vicinity.
The trains on the Northern Pacific go out
every night from St. Paul with a large num
ber of miners, and people that are not
miners, going out there. These mines seem
to have taken possession of the minds
of old miners throng lout the whole country,
who for some reason or other, believe they
constitute the largest aud richest discovery
ever made In this country. The head quar
ters of the Northern Pacific, in St. Paul are
kept busy day after day, furnishing informa
tion in regard to the mine's and how to get
there. The Black Hills miners are all flock
ing to Miles City, where they are taken up by
the west bound trains and conveyed to Rath
drum, Belknap and Trout Creek,
the nearest station to the mines.
It is estimated that 2,000 miners
from the Black Hil's alone will go to Couer
d'Alene, and that :00 men a day are arriv
ing at the mines. Undoubtedly considerable
gold has been found there and the prospects
are, that much more will be found, and that
they will ultimately prove to be a very rich
mining country. The only question that is
left to be solved is as tohow rich the diggings
will prove to be. There is no question
whatever as to" the richness
of the quartz lodes discovered
during the fall and winter. The placer
mines are also extensive and will yield any
where from $7 to i 50 :<nd $100 per day to the
hand. The oldest Pae fie slope miners and
those from Colorai'o and the Black Hills are
among the most enthusiastic, and there is
but one Opinion among them and a'l practi
cal miners ab< ut the mines, and that is they
are very rich ; nd extensive. Mr. Tuomas G.
Merrill, a veteran prospector and assayer,
says the Cceur d'Alene is the best
placer field known in the
United States. He expects to see 1,000
ounces a day p ©duced after June 1, and be
lieves that there will be 25,000 people there
in the spring. Mr. Merrill will establish a

Clevetand, Mar. 5.—Tho annual meeting
of the stockholders of the Cleveland, Coun
bus, Cincinnati «fc Indinapolis railroad was
hold hero this morning. J. H. Devereaux,
I. Park. James Earnett and T. H. Hardy
were elected directors for two years without
opposition. Thos. P. Fowler, representing
English stockholders, offered a resolution re
questing the directors to declare divicii nds
equal to the net earnings of last year, aud
also similarly divide among tl.e share
holders 82,000,000. representing the accum
ulation, net earnings. The resolution was
declared adopted, and referred to the direct
ors for consideration. President Devereaux
reported the gross earnings,. $664,000; the
operating expenses. 69}^ per cent, of the net
earnings, a decrease of 10 per cent.
The bonded debt was increased ?930,000 and
now is $7,295,000. The increase is clue to
the outlay attending the reorganization of
the Indianapolis and St. Louis. The report

Chicago, March 6.—The general freight
agents of the lines in the Northwestern Traffi >
association took another whirl to-day at
the percentages for the proposed pool.
Three ballots were taken, but
as the total percentages wanted would per
sist in floating up 112 out of a possible 100,
they gave it up as a bad job. A resolution

fair probability that the managers will be
able to agree without much difficulty. If

How the Jfews was Received by His
A Charming Woman Prostrated by a Hus
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Chicago, March 6.—Charles H. Bosworth,
who has just distinguished himself by eloping
with a hotel waitress at St. Paul, was for a long
time employed in the railway mail depart
ment in this city. He was head clerk for a
time, afterwards being promoted to
chief clerk, and on May
20, 1882, he resigned to accept an appoint
ment aS superintendant of mails at St. Paul.
He is well remembered by the older em
ployes In the Chicago offices as a man of 35
or thereabouts, whose wife had obtained a di
vorce from him, and who was not considered
Several charges were preferred against him
while In the railway mall service here, one of
which was for drunkenness, and another for
partiality, but none of them were
sustained by investigation. The
woman, Belle Easterbrook, with
whom he is said to have run away from St.
Paul, was formerly a dining room girl at the
Briggs house, where Bosworth first met her.
On January 14, he married Miss Lottie
Starles, of Coo Walnut street, this city, but
sent her home prior to his disappearance.
WUAT MRS. BOSWORTH SAYS.
"I can't believe Charley left with another
woman, although I think he went away from
St. Paul, because he was embarrassed in a
financial way," softly whispered a pale
beautiful girl, who reclined in the
crimsoned shadows of an invalid's chak- at
No. 665 Walnut street. The tinted light from
a shaded argand burner threw her delicate
features in strong relief as she turned
her face toward the Globe correspondent,
and her thin wasted hands, when unclasped,
wardered convulsively to a middle-aged lady
who sat at her left. It was Mrs. Charles H.
Bosworth, whose husband so mysteriously
disappeared from St. Paul. Her maiden
name was Letta Starles, and this was the
home of her parents, who are well-to-do citi
zens of Chicago. The daughter, prior to her
marriage, was a belle, and was gifted with
both charming manners and a hand
some face. She was married only a
few short weeks ago to Bosworth, and her
ife is now blighted for a time. She married
him here, and after the marriage accom
panied her husband to St. Paul, where
he was superintendent of mails,
and she knew that he had a
first wife, from whom he was divorced, but
any other features of his life were a blank to
her. Last Friday Bosworth put her on the
train, with many loving words of farewell,
and started her for Chicago,
to pay her mother a visit. She expected a
letter containing money on Monday, but in
stead came a box containing her clothing
and other personal articles. This alarmed her,
but she wrote to him and awaited an answer
to her appeal for an explanation. Then she
saw some dispatches in the papers, saying
that he had ran away with a girl called Belle
Esterbrook, a hotel waitress, who formerly
worked in this city at the Briggs house.
When she read the new3 she fainted, and
was picked up uneonscious on the parlor
floor by her anxious parents since then she
has been Blck and prostrated. Her faith in
her husband's allegiance continues,
however. She could not tell anything
about the Esterbrook woman, but had heard
some stories about the first wife's reasons for
leaving Bosworth. Her husband was
badly in debt in St. Paul, aud
that may have caused hi3 ac
tion. It was stated that Bosworth's first
wife learning of his intimacy with Belle
Esterbrook, then employed at the Briggs
House, obtained a divorce and alimony on
that account, about two weeks ago
the divorced wife came to
the inspector's office in this city, and stated
that her husband now refused to pay over to
the courts the alimony specified in the decree
granting her divorce and that he was
married again. She wanted to know what
could be done about this aud was told to
seek satisfaction through the courts
and that legal means might
see the matter straight. This
is believed by the present wife to be the
cause of Bosworth's flight. She thinks that
the Esterbrook woman was not living in St.
Paul at the time.
A BOXING MATCH.
The Sullivan-Robinson Match in San
Franciseo Scooped by Sullivan.
San Francisco, March 0. —Fifteen thou
sand people were inside the pavilliou this
evening to witness the Sullivan-Robinson
match. It is estimated as many more were
turned away. The receipts from the sale of
tickets were close on $20,000* The tickets
were sold at So advance. The hall arrange
ments, under Hugh Coyle, were perfect. A
hundred police were distributed in the audi
ence to preserve order. Sullivan made
the first appeamnce in the ring at 9:50
in first class form, and was greeted enthusi
astically. A few seconds later be was fol
lowed by Robinson, whose condition was un
favorably commented on by the audience.
The former weighed 204 and the latter 170
pounds. The announcement that the police
had disallowed the use of three ounce gloves
was hissed, and eight ounce gloves were used.
Thos. Chandler was referee, Hiram B. Cook,
time keeper for Robinson, and Win. Muldoon
for Sullivan. Robinson was knocked down
eight times in the first round, going down at
each blow of Sullivan, without receiving pun
The second round was an exact repetition
of the tirst, except that Robinson fell down
fourteen times in rapid succession. In the
third round the same maneuvres on the part
of Robinson, who however did not succeed
BO wellin avoiding punishment, getting sev
eral severe blows, none of which appeared to
take the starch out of him. In this round
A claim of foul was made on the part of
Sullivan's time keeper, that Robinson fell
without being struck by Sullivan. The claim
was not noticed by the referee. In the fourth
round, Robinson's trick of falling without au
exchange of blows was too evident for the
referee to allow it to pass. The
round was unfinished and the match
given to Sullivan on the foul specified
above. Robinson escaped without apparent
punishment, though Sullivan planted several
left hand under cuts on his face when Rob
inson was In the act of falling. Robinson's
conduct is severely censured by the spec
tators. Sullivan was loudly cheered. A
match had been arranged between Pete Mc-
Coy and Young Dutch, but was stopped by
the police on accountof the gloves to be used.
