TnEitE is plenty of time. The Holmes—

The Boston papers have Edmunds-phobia,
and have it bad. To them he is in the nat

The Jit raid admonishes General Hawley that
he must not indulge in any funny business.
So it says: "Gen. Hawley is a man of good
parts, but he should not let his shadow ob

of Edmunds" As the truly good Mr. Ed

where thc hair ought to grow," this is pathos
and bathos, and especially as Gen. Hawley is
casting no shadow in Mr. Edmund's neigh
borhood or in the vicinity of any one
else. The same paper gives
another symptom of the intensity of the Ed

no Republican newspaper of any influence
in Massachusetts which is not in favor of Ed

Mn. Blaine rather boastfully states tha
since he ceased to be a United States sena
tor he has never been within the senate
chamber. In this respect his practice am
example are worthy. The habits which pre
vails among ex-Senators and ex-Represent
atives of hovering about tbe Capitol aftei
the end of their oflicial relations there, is ir
the nature of public contempt, and pro
ductive of the worst elements of lobbyism,
The evil has grown so great that Congress it
scandalized by It, and in order to protect it
self from the raids of these unsavory gentry
undertakes to enforce a rule to exclude them
in some part. There are improper men
enough who are in Congress without having
added to the number a miscellaneous lot whe
have been left out. If all Mr. Blaine's
practices were like this one he might almost
attain the rank of a model citizen.
ONE GOBS UP, ONE GOES DOWN.
A late advice from Washington indicates
that gloom, like a pall, is falling on Arthur's
presidential prospects. A great change is
alleged to have to have taken place. His re
tainers, who for weeks have crowded the cor
ridors of the Arlington House, have de
camped, having failed in satisfactorily boom
ing their chief. The name of Blaine, itis
alleged, is more frequently spoken of in
connection with the Presidency than any
other. Logan has substantially subsided,
having been on dress parade about his time,
aud the "Plumed Knight" is growing up
into dangerous proportions to the dismay ol
the Acting President, who feels that he is to
stand in history only as the administrative
executor of an assassinated President, and
not to go on the roll of fame as an elected
President on his own account.
The high tariffitcs in Maine are becoming
despondent. Some of them, taking counsel
of their fears, are yielding the ground oi
extreme protection. A quiet revolution in
the old North East, still, the state of Blaine,
is going on, and the sticklers for a high tar
iif are fast weakening. A Belfast manufactur
ing firm, all Republicans, hitherto high pro
tectionists, yieldingly put themselves on
record as follows:
"We do not object to the. Morrison bill.
Lumber, salt and coal free will benefit more
than injure. We are manufacturers and
wish to have our manufactures protected,

8 FND POR HIIERMAN.
Pulling the nose an assault upon the "em
unctory of the brain," is a Republican mode
of punishing colored voters at the South who
vote the Democratic ticket. Here is the evi
dence of this new mode of Republican tor
ture for political offences. Cornelius War
nocli a colored Democrat of Lynchburg, Va.,
was one of thc witnessess examined by Sena
tor Sherman's sub-committee in the Danville
riot case, is reported by the committee as fol
He became a Democrat because his race in
their mass meetings would insist on nominating
men who were not competent to lead them. Had
he ever been assaulted for voting the Democratic
ticket? Yes, sir, frequently. He had had his
nose pulled, sir, forveting the Democratic ticket.
Both men und women had assaulted his nose,
This is a new mode of "Southern outrage,"
that Senator Sherman should not let his
partisan ferocity overlook in making his re
port on the Danville riot cases, even if per
petrated on a Democrat, guilty of a skin not
colored like his own. Perhaps, however, the
great Senator may not feel called upon to
protest against assaults upon Democratic
noses, by nose-led Southren colored Republi
The effort of President Arthur to create a
Republican party, or, more properly, an Ar
thur party, in the South has turned to ashes.
The reason for this is simply his "trade and
dicker" methods and the employment of cor
rupt agents to carry out his projects upon the
basis of the federal patronage.
Thus he undertook to attach to his ambi
tious fortunes the delegates to the National
Convention from Arkansas. To carry out
his purposes he formed an alliance, offensive
and defensive, with that savory ex-carpet-bag
Senator Powell Clayton. That profert was
the signal of failure, and in the fight with the
might of fedral patronage on onehandandthe
free unbought preference of the people on the
other, Arthur met his rout and
humiliation. Wherever Arthur has met
with success in the South it
has been through the favors of his office
holders, and because there was not a free
ballot, and an honest count.
There is reason for gratification that the
corruptionists of Arkansas were forced to
the wall. It would be well for the country
if in every instance of these exhibits of un
warranted interference the samething could
happen. The Republican party is seeing
the begining of the end. Purchased deliga
tions and purchased elections will not always
supply the dominant power in the land. It
is something in these corrupt days that in a
state like Arkansas that the push-pin master
of business politics has met with defeat.
Colorphobia is breaking out in a virulent
manner among white Republicans. In
Georgia, according to a special from Atlanta,
a white man's party has already been organ
ized by Republicans, who loathe political
affiliation with "niggers," and who com
temptuously spurn the thought of subordi
nation to negroes, in localities where he has
the numerical ascendancy. This new white
man's party organization has issued an ad
dress to voters and is developing considera
ble importance in Georgia. Such stalwart,
Republicans as Gen. Longstreet, Jonathan
Norcross, ex-congressman Freeman, and
men of that character are identified with the
The republicans have heretofore claimed
the negro vote of the South by prescriptive
right, on account of the claimed "eternal
gratitude" which the negroes owe to "the
grand old party." But this new phase of re
jection of the colored vote, will lead to new
complications, and only serve to make thc
South still more solid for the Democracy.
The delicate sensitiveness of the Georgia re
publicans, is at variance with true political
philosophy, for the establishment of a race
line in party action will inevitably lead to
rugged complications and unappeaseable bit
terness. A negroe's vote will count as
much as Gen. Longstreet's, though his in
fluence may not. The "White man's party,"
may see the time in the not very far away
future, when they much desire, but cannot
obtain, the now despised and rejected negro
vote. We are glad to see the hypocritical
pretext of respect for the rights of the col
ored race at last abandoned.
WHAT WILL HE THINK OF THEM?
A 7ery ludicrous result of the bogus letter
of Matthew Arnold, published as a cable
telegram from London, ls the position in
which it has placed many of the society peo
ple, and the men and women of culture of
the Garden City. The bogus letter was very
severe on many citizens, especially those who
had entertained the apostle of light and
sweetness. Upon the appearance of the bo
gus letter the newspapers eent out reporters
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 10, 1884.
to interview the various people re
ferred to, and many other promi
nent people, residents. The unanimity
with which all those interviewed asserted
that Arnold was a humbug is very curious.
Many of those who had entertained him at
their houses were among the most bitter in
their denunciations of his worthlessness.
He was again and again termed a dead beat
by persons who had fawned on him while
here, but who were soured by the bogus letter
in which they saw themselves ridiculed.
Scores of anecdotes were related of his ill
manners, his selfishness and other reprehen
sible qualities. His philosophy was denounced,
he was affirmed a toper, a snob, an English
hog—and always by the very people wbo
made the most of him while in that city.
Now, it has been elicited that he did not
write thc letter at all, and all those people
have put themselves on record as to their
opinion of him, he will see all these inter
views, and what will thc English poet think
of these people whose hospitality he was in
vited to share, who made so much of him
and who now have rushed into print to show
him to be a boor, a hog, a drunkard, and
who have not been sparing of abuse of even
his wife and daughter?
POSSIBLE MEXICAN CRISIS.
The difficulty in the city of Mexico with re
ference to the collection of the stamp tax by
the government from the merchants, seems
to have reached a point where there is liable
to be a collision between the troops and the
people. They have their own way of doing
things in that country. Thc universal rem
edy for grievances is revolt, or revolution.
When there is an edict issued or an attempt
to enforce a law that somebody does not like
then a mob collects, a pronuneiamento is is
sued, a lot of the citizens arc shot and stab
bed, a few houses are plundered aud burnt,
and the whole affair is conducted somewhat
after the Cincinnati plan. As a rule, the
government wins, and a good many people
are tried, and shot after the revolt is over
and then for a time all goes on as before.
Thc present time shows the beginning of
one of these frequent social and political
crisiess. The government has in its possess
ion some extraordinary powers which it is
empowered to use in cases of necessity. Be
lieving that one of these case3 is now pres
ent the government has elected to enforce
the use of one of these special powers by the
collection of a species of license from mer
chants and others whose business may be
thus taxed. Hence the mutterings, the un
easiness and the threats of an outbreak.
Among the disaffected arc many Americans
who have gone into bnsiness in the Mexican
capital aud who are vainly appealing to the
American consul to protect them from these
exactions. There Is not the smallest reason
for concluding that the efforts of citizens of
this country to do business with Mexicans by
taking up their residence among them will
meet with success. The Mexican people do
not desire business relations with Ameri
cans on thisbasis, and will not tolerate them.
The Mexican people hate this country with
a malignity and strength that are undying.
They have never forgotten or forgiven the
loss of Texas and New Mexico, or the defeats
which they suffered at the hands of the
American army. They hate us as a nation,
and they hate us as individuals.
The experience of Americans who have
gone into business in Mexico is that they are
a specially hated class. In case of a revolu
tion they would be made victims of the bau
dits who should be fighting for or against the
stale. A mixture of Spanish and Indian,
they have all the hauteur and pride of the
one and the undying desire for vengeance
of the other. The time will eome when the
only solution of the Mexican problem will
be found in the possession of the country.
It, in its present condition, will always be to
us a menace. Not to-day, but 6ome years
or decades hence, it will be found that the
only radical solution of the difficulty will be
the occupation and final annexation of our
HOW TO DEFEAT KNUTE NELSON.
It must be conceded that Charley Gilman
has stolen a march upon thc Kindred crowd
in the Fifth district by calling a nominating
convention at Fergus Falls the day previous
to the Moorhead convention. It is a political
trick, but that is the general style
of Republican politics in Minne
sota and was to be expected. Itis, however,
a trick neatly played.
First, the Gilman-Nelson committee,
ignoring the Kindred faction, called a con
vention to meet at Moorhead on April 24th,
to send delegates to the national convention.
Then the Holmes-Kindred com
mittee met and after expressing a
good deal of just indignation
called a convention of their faction to meet
at Moorhead for the same purpose on the
same day. This was a good deal of a sur
render, and a decided overture for peace.
It was really a display of self-abegnation on
the part of the Kindred crowd.
Instead of accepting it in this manner the
Gilman-Nelson gang treat the peace offering
with contempt, and proceed without consult
ing the Kindred faction, to call another con
vention at Fergus Falls for April 23, to nom
inate a candidate for congress.
The Kindred committee, having already
humiliated themselves by tagging on to the
Moorhead call of the Nelson committee, can
not very well follow up their humble attitude
by calling a second convention to meet at
Fergus Falls on the 23d. They cannot act
under the Nelson call and send dele
gates to the Fergus Falls convention
without an utter, absolute and most shame
ful surrender. This will, of course, leave
Nelson a clear field and give him an uncon
tested nomination at Fergus Falls, and if the
Kindred faction are not going to lie down
under the insult, they have no alternative
but to hold a convention of their own and
put a candidate in the field.
The vote in 1S82 stood 12,238 for Kindred,
and 16,956 for Nelson. Nelson was a bolter,
but now claims regularity because he was
elected. The ignoring of over twelve thou
sand voters, and the contemptuous insult
offered them by the Gilman-Nelson gang, is
one of the most high-handed political out
rages ever attempted. The Nelson men say
to 12,23S Republicans in the Fifth district, we
do not want you to act with us. There are
four thousand more of us than of your crowd,
and you can run a machine of your own.
The men who voted for Kindred in 1882
ought to take the Nelson gang at
their word and fight them to the
death. Every element of decency and man
hood rebels against the insult of the Gilman-
It Is perhaps too much to hope, but the
Democratic fiasco inthe Fifth district in 1S82
ought to have taught them a lesson. Thc
two Republican factious of the Fifth district
ought to be given a clear field to fight it out
without Democratic interference. In that
way Mr. Nelson can be defeated. He is an
incubus on the district, and the reign of Gil
man and Nelson can be terminated if the
Kindred faction will display a proper degree
of manhood and the Democrats develop some
Some parties are on a visit to Washington npon

ten of these new lamps were placed on the Wash
ington monument, six lamps on the Smithsonian
institute, 169 feet high, and twelve lamps on the
dome of the Capitol, 392 feet high. The capacity
of each lamp is rated at 4,000 candles. The light
from the monument in the immediate neighbor
hood was inconsiderable, but a mile away it was
so great that there was no difficulty in reading the
face of a watch. At that, and even a greater
distance, shadows were distinctly cast, and the
streets were sufficiently lighted. From the
Smithsonian tower the grounds were so illumin
ated that ordinary print conld be read. The light
radiated from the Capitol dome was so great that
the city authorities turned oil the gas from 400
or 500 lamps within a certain radius, leaving the
The University of Cincinnati has been relieved
of a mill-stone by the resignation of Thomas
Vickers, the* rector of the institution, which has
just been made public. Vickers says he resigned,
or tendered his resignation some time ago, while
an action for divorce was pending between him
self and his wife, and he alleges that his resigna
tiogwas "forced by the prosecution to which he
was subjected on account of his views as a free
thinker." On the other hand, some of the trus
tees and other friends of the university say that
Vickers, in his management has been guilty of
political trickery, of favoritism in the university
and inordinate beer drinking. They allege also
that he has been guilty of disgraceful conduct
with some well known women. The petition for
divorce was denied. Mrs. Vickers is the daugh
ter of the German Critic Girvinus, and is with
her friends in her native country. Mr. Vicker is
a Unitarian clergyman, and in his career as public
librarian of Cincinnati and rector of the uuiversity
has been olfcusfvely combative and overbearing.
His resignation is a good riddance.
A Xew Yoi-.k city judge imposed the sentence
of eighteen years and six months upon one Jessie
Williams, a colored coachman, who assaulted
Miss Harvey, (who had engaged his services) for
the purpose of robbery. The lady resided in a
French flat, and had in her employ as a servant
Gertrude Aph, who connived with the scouudrally
coachman in the abduction and assauls upon her
mistress. The case was an aggravated one and
the penalty imposed was none too severe. If the
courts, as a rule, made the criminal classes feel
the full power and vigor of thc law with uni
formity, the protection to community would be
much enhanced. The prevailing method, how
ever, is spasmodic, aud where one pcoundrel gets
his just deserts a score are dealt with lightly, and
soon return to prey upon society, more desperate
and vicious than before. The terror of the law
should be ever present.

A complaint was made about half-past

woman who keeps a boarding house on the
corner of Seventh and Rosabel streets that a
man was occupying a room in her house with
a woman. The landlady did not like that
kind of business, and had so informed the
parties, but they did not respect her wishes
in the matter and proposed to remain. She
determined that they should not, and accord
ingly asked the aid of the officer to enable
her to get rid of them. The officer
went up to the room and arrested
both, and took them to the city hall. He
gave the name of Charles B. Brown, which,
of course, was not the correct one. Sergeant

man's purse was not long enough, and $35*
was all he could furnish. He therefore gave

ALL FOR RANDALL
The Enthusiastic and Unanimous
Randall Delegates Elected and a Ran
dall Platform Adopted with
General Davis Nominated for Congressman
at-Large—Brief Speech from Randall.
Allextowx, Pa., April 9. —Thc Democratic
convention was called to order by Chairman
Hensel. The roll call showed twelve contest
ed seats. At the close of the roll call R. Mil
ton Spear was elected temporary chairman by
acclamation. Mr. Spear, having taken the
chair, made a speech, in which he said, " I
hope tbe issue of this convention will be the
nomination of another Pennsylvanian, who
will be elected. Pennsylvania could not be
unmindful of herself, and the Democratic
party cannot be unmindful of her. As
long as there is employment for labor
she will not turn to the Democracy in vain.
The enforcement of the laws and the purifi
cation of the service are dear to all of us. A
man has been named here who is in the pub
lic service twenty-five years and is to-day
poorer than when he entered. If he shall be
declared the choice of this convention for
the national executive, let him go, not only
with your votes but with your hearts." [Shouts
and applause for Randall here given by the
The rules of the house of representatives
were adopted for the government of the body
and committees were appointed.
When the convention reassembled R. Mil
ton Speer was chosen permanent chairman.
Wm. Mutchler, chairman of the committee
on resolutions, presented the following re
First—The Democratic party of Pennsyl
vania in state convention are met, to main
tain those principles of government ordained
by the federal constitution, and their inter
pretation, which the founders of the party
settled and made known, denounces the late
attempts by the agents of the federal govern
ment to overturn these principles by judicial
legislation and executive usurpation.
Second—We are against centralization,
monopoly and extravagant expenditures,
subsidies and the debasement of civil service
to partisan spolition.
Third—Wc believe that the electoral
frauds of 1876-7, by which S. J. Tilden and
Thos. A. Hendricks were cheated out of the
office of president and vice president, to
whieh they were fairly elected, was the most
deadly blow ever aimed at our system of rep
resentative government and the duty of
driving from power the men and party who
made that fraud triumphant, is the most sa
cred obligation ever imposed upon conscien
ces of free men.
Fourth—We favor a tariff for revenue,
limited to the necessities of the government,
economically administered, and so adjusted
in its application as to prevent unequal bur
dens, encourage productive industries at
home, and afford just compensation to labor,
but not to create or foster monopolies, and to
this end, we favor the abolition of the in
ternal revenue system of taxes, and such
adjustment of the existing tariff duties as
will be consistent with these principles.
Fifth—Every legitimate effort of labor to
better its condition, enhance its rewards and
protect its rights, commands the sympathy
and support of the Democratic party. The
importation, under contract, of foreign
pauper labor, is an evil which should be
remedied by judicious legislation.
Sixth—We favor the enforcement of the
constitution of Pennsylvania in its every
article and section, and especially demand
the regulation by law, in arcordance there
with, of corporations, of state equalization of
tax laws, appropriation of public moneys to
public uses only, honest management of the
state treasury, and a rigid enforcement of
the laws governing it.
Seventh—The refusal of the Republican
members of the legislature to agree to a just
apportionment, was a flagrant violation of
tho constitution for unworthy partisan pur
poses. We denounce their course, and we
applaud and commend the determination of
the Democratic governor, representatives
and senators, to insist upon an honest and
fair apportionment, and we commend the
present Democratic state administration for
its maintenance of its constitution, its en
forcement of law, and its honest and capable
discharge of public duties.
Hesolved, That Samuel J. Randall is the
choice of the Democracy of Pennsylvania as
the candidate of their party for president.
By long, faithful public service, he has illus
trated his unfaltering devotion to high politi
cal principle, and fealty to the Democratic
party. His honesty and honor, his capacity
and courage, his faithful labors and signal
abilities, have merited and won for him the
confidence and support of the people of the
As the third resolution was read, the con
vention broke into cheers. The planks re
lating to the tariff, labor and stale adminis
tration were also applauded, but the most
hearty cheers were given, and repeated
again and again, when the last resolution,
referring to Randall, was read.
The platform as read was adopted, and
then loud cries were made for Randall. The
gentleman was sent for, and when he ap
peared, Mr. Snowden, whohad the floor at
once declared, amid a burst of cheers, that
he gave way to the next president. For
some time it was impossible for Randall to
proceed. At last quiet being restored, he
•'I am here present in obedience to your
request, and I desire to acknowledge my
deep and lasting obligation to you, the rep
resentatives of more than 400,000 Democrats
of this great and glorious commonwealth,
and to thank you for the high honor
which you have to-day unanimously
bestowed upon me. I do not attribute this
action in any degree to my personal merits.
On the contrary, I recognize and realize it as
an approval of the resolute and aggressive
course which I have pursued in congress,
in advocacy or in defense of those cardinal
principles advocated by Jefferson, Jackson,
Polk and Buchanan. As it has been with
me in past, so it will be to the end. And
now I thank you one and all, and beg that
eaeh of you will convey back to your con
stituents the assurance that, in future, they
will find no faltering, no falling by the way
side in the defense of your rights."

The Mclleiiry Indebtedness Settled
Amicably with President
The Steps Taken to That End, and Mcllenry
Leaves for Europe on the
New York, April 9.—Late this evening,
after the business offices were closed, a ru
mor was started to the effect that James Mc-
Henry, the railroad magnate, was arrested
to day on board the steamship Servia, and
on which he was a passenger for England.
The alleged arrest was said to be at the in-
siuuee oi me _cne ruinroau compauy. mt.
James Riley, Mr. McHenry's agent, says:
"The rumored arrest is utterly false. The
facts are, 6ince November last negotiations
have been pending between McHenry and
President Jewett, in regard to the
settlement of a judgement aggregating some
$2,000,000, obtained here and in Lond< n by
the Erie railroad company against McHenry.
The latter had been anxious to go to Eng*
land for some time, but he did uot wish to
leave the city before a satisfactory settlement
had been made. The matter dragged along
since that time without anything being ac
complished, until two days ago, when Mc-
Henry made, through me, a proposition to
Jewitt, by which he agreed to transfer very
valuable assets, consisting principally of
stocks and otlier surities to the Erie
railroad compauy, as a settlement in
full of all claims against him.
This proposition was regarded with favor,
and yesterday evening McHenry and mySelf
met Jewett aud his lawyer, Opdyke, at his
own house, when we talked over the whole
matter Jewett made a proposition, based
on McHenry's offer, which was accepted by
the latter with very little modification, and
arrangements were made to conclude the
This forenoon there was another meeting
in the Erie office. After this McHenry, 8.
L. Iff. Barber, counsel of the Erie company,
and myself, proceeded lo tin; Victoria hotel,
where Barlow drew up a settlement, whicli
was signed by McHenry, after the term
had been carefully reconsidered. This was
about 1 o'clock. Shortly after we had lunch
and I drove with McHenry to thc dock of the
Cuuard line, where the Ser
via was lyinsj. As soon
as he went on board McHenry was met by a
large number of frieudswho came to see him
off. While he was bidding them lan-well.
Hanford, one of the Erie's lawyers, came np
ond gave a personal note from President
Jewett, in which he expressed himself well
pleased with the result of the negotiations.
The Servia sailed about fifteen minutes after
ward, and no officer of the law was seen by
any of the party. I have no doubt that prep
arations had been made to play the usual
snap game and prevent McHenry sailing in
case the agreement was not signed by him.
There was probably a deputy marshal on
board at the time with a warrant, as I happen
to know that one had been issued, but he did
not show himself or it.
Newton Bradley Gets to Jail Because
He Mixed His Deposits and Bnsted.
Newton Bradley, formerly one of the pub
iishera of the St. Paul Press, and later of the
National Marine bank in this city, appears to
have gotten into trouble. He left St. Paul
several years ago and located at Silver City,
Grant county, New Mexico, where
he appears to have again engaged
In the banking business, being thc
manager of the Grant County bank.
A sale of a mine by a master in chancery
under order of the court, placed over $28,
000 in his bank, shortly after which the bank
failed. In making au assignment he made
the master a preferred creditor, but the court
held that he should have regarded the court
fund as a special deposit aud not have al
lowed it to go into the general funds of the
bank. He was brought up with a round
turn and the Silver City Enterprise thus re
cords the opinion of thc court and the sen
"Upon a careful consideration of the facts
and evidence In thc case the court is con
vinced that Newton Bradley fully understood
the nature of the deposit; that he knew the
master had been adpointed to sell the mine,

in the Grant County bank while acting un
der and in obedience to the order of thc
court. The manner in which tbc money was
used showed conclusively that it could not

of the nature of the trust. Mr. Bradley is
no unskilled youth, but an old and exper
ienced banker, thoroughly acquainted with
tbe banking business and understands
fully the scope and character of its trans
tions. On this score he cannot claim ignor
ance, and must have known that the master
was representing the court, acting wholly
under its directions and not in his individual
capacity. In his own affairs and business
we know Newton Bradley to be careful, at
tentive and methodical, of sober habits, with
a disposition to give rather than waste—more
of the miser than the spendthrift—and with
these habits and this experience he cannot
shield himself behind the shallow plea that
he used and disposed of this money entrusted
to his keeping in ignorance of his duty, and
without knowing that he was disobeying the
order of the court and violating its
trust. I feel that a gross deception
has been practiced upon the court and its
confidence violated, and that the money
placed in the Grant county bank as a judicial
deposit was appropriated by Newton Bradley,
with a fraudulent intent to use and dispose
of the same. The judgment is, therefore,
that he be committed to the county jail for
the period of sixty days for contempt of
court, and at thc expiration of that period he
be required to give bail in the sum of £.">(>.

New York. April 9.—As It was known that
Gen. Grant would n >t preside at the "Cin

the exercises began by the band playing
"Dixie.'' Many letters of regret were read.

best wishes and efforts for their su - .
Gen. Brlstow promised his support. Dr.
Talmage also sent a letter of sympathy with
the movement in lieu of his presence.
Gen. J. B. Gordon made thc speech of the
