Blaixe said if he did not secure every
delegate in Maine he would refuse to be a
candidate. This is supposed to have been
meant as a drive at Arthur, who came far
short of securing the unanimous delegation
of bis own state. But the incisive dig falls
far short of its mark.

Henry Ward Beecher's advocacy of Arthur,
and his bitter partisan criticisms on Mr.'
Blainesays: 'The man who is admitted to

Mr. Edmunds is in a sympathetic mood.
He is pressing the proposition to put Gen.

The mystery concerning the loss of the
State of Florida haa boon solved. The ques
tion now is, what will be done about it by the
English newspapers of last Sunday. In them
it wns announced without any hesitation,
and as if there were no question as to the
trutli of the assertion, that the steamer had
been blown up by dynamite placed on board
by Irish-American conspirators, and a de
maud was thereupon formulated that
the United States be called on
for explanations, and that this
country agree to punish all men found en
gaged in conspiring against England, and to
suppress all efforts being made against the
peace of Great Britian by Irishmen in the
country. The charges made by these papers
will never be corrected in their columns.
The readers of them will never learn that what
was said was simply scandalous falsehood,
and there will remain on the minds of the
majority of them the belief that the vessel
was blown up by dynamite, and that the
work originated in this country.
TUB I ROSY OF FATE.
The suicide of the Ford, who killed Jesse
James, eliminates another of the drugs of
tLe latu war, and leaves the resluum so
small that it is Incapable of but little more
harm, andriu a short time will have disap
peared . The fate of the elements of brigand
age, which for so long terrorized the south
west, is worth examining by the juvenile
classes, and even by older people disposed
to believs tbat there may be policies of life
preferable to those dictated by honesty. Few,
or none of these cut-hroats have attained
any other distinction than that which comes
from the exhibition of exceptional audacity
in the perpetration of crime. Not one of
them has secured wealth, or even a compe
tency. Several have been assassinated, or
shot down by our outraged citizens. Some
of them are serving life sentences in prison-
One of,the Fords baa just taken hta own

The readers of dime novel literature should
take a lesson from this outcome of lives of
crime. The bullet of the assassin, the cel
of the felon, the grave of the self-murderer
are the results which have been achieved by
these men; and they are but the inevitable
sequences of a career from which integrity
has been eliminated.
WALL STMJSJSX PAGAXISM.
Monsigncr Capel preached last Sunday in
the church of St. Agnes on East 43 street in
New York city. He denounced Wall street
as the seat of paganism. The sacred edifice
was crowded to its utmost capacity, hundreds
standing, and other hundreds unable to gain
admission. It was the Feast of the Patron
age of St. Joseph, aud the distinguished ec
clesiastic delivered an eloquent address on
the thoughts suggested by the day. After
referring to the reason for exalting Joseph
the Carpenter to the eminent position of pa
tron saint of the Catholic Church, he dwelt
on the fact that the heroes of the Church
were very different from those of the world.
Thence he glided into a short but pithy dis
sertation on the worship of mammon in that
city, as well as in the other metropolitan
cities of the world.
"Look at Wall street find Ffth avenue,"
lie said. "The people are steeped in pagan
ism. Everything is sacrificed to the idea of
getting wealth, and the women devote
all their thoughts to the attainment of ele
He deprecated the insidious tendency to
immorality in the theatre, the conversation
of the stage fraught with so much double
meaning, and its whole tendency to weaken
the marriage relation.
"Its one great curse," he said, "is its
want of chastity. In these times, therefore,"
he continued, ''It is fitting to hold up the
character of one who was a model of married
life." He then dilated on the way that peo
ple were attracted by the materialistic.
'•People are constantly trying to excel each
other in their houses, their furniture and
their dress. The world is steeped in the
idea of getting luxury."
It may be hoped that the words of the dis
distinguished exhorter did not fall on stony
ground, but it is feared whoever else may
have listened and heard, Wall street was
deaf, and though having ears heard not.
George W. Smalle}', a pedantic American,
long a resident in Mngland as a correspon
dent of American newspapers, and now the
London correspondent of the New York Tri
bune, assails Webster's Dictionary, with a
supercilious and superficial pedantry that
fairly rivals John Bull himself, and in a
style evidently becoming English coekney
ism. He writes:
The complaint of "American" spelling is one
that Is constantly heard In England. Webster
and the printers and puolishers who blindly fol
lowed him, have a good deal to answer for. Few
scholars would now recognise Webster as a
scientific philologist. He is out of date : his dic
tionary is indebted to more modern men (one of
them a German) for much of what is valuable in
it; and yet his editors do not correct his caprices
in spelling. A generation of American 'type
setters and proof-readers have been trained up
iv the way they should not go, and being old it
is not easy for them to depart from it. Vanity
and false shame have perhaps something to do
with their pertinacity—falee patriotism also.
The result is that to educate Englishmen Ameri
can spelling seems provincial. It is a patois, and
I do not see much patriotism in perpetuating an
eccentricity that establishes or widens the diver
gence between the English and the American
languages. Perhaps it is unpatriotic to say there
is a divergence, but there are people who think
it extends beyond mere spelling, baid a lady not
long since in Paris to a simple-minded French
chambermaid in a hotel: "You understand Eng
lish, do you not?" "Yes, midame," answered
she, "bnt I nndentand American better."
Thus weak and silly Americans, becoming
anglicized basely assail the institutions of
their own country. That Webster's diction
ary is perfect, no one will pretend, nor has
any dictionary of the progressive Englteh
language reached perfection. But that Web

hensiveness, its exhaustive research, the intel
ligent precision of its definitions and for its

CIVILIZATIOX XX -UtKAXSAS.
The state of civilization, public sentiment,
morals and a sense of justice, In Arkan
sas is deplorable enough, at least in portions
of it. In Hdvard county, a colored citizen
owned a farm of considerably value. One
day his daughter, a girl in her teens was
working alone in the Held. A white, worth
less vagabond assaulted her and lelt her
fainting and helpless. The authorities re
fused to arrest the villain. Had a colored
man assaulted a white, girl would they have
refused redress! Probably not On the re
fusal of the authorities to take cognisance of
the case, the friends of the girl, of the same
color, pursued the ruffian, and found him.
JL-. opened tire upon them whereupon they
returned the lire aud shot and killed him on
Upon this, four hundred white friends of j
tho ravisher of the defenseless girl assembled '
to wreak mob vengenance upon her avengers.
This white mob ot rufllnns, were on a hunt
after the friends of the girl. They killed the
first colored man they met, and soon after I
lired into a company of colored men and
killed four more. These white ruitians then ap- j
pealed to the authorities and had the most
promnenteoioredcitizensthey could find who ;
were in sympathy with the girl,arrested. The}"
were tried by so called Arkansas forms of
law, and three were condemned to be hung,
and thirty wers sentenced to the penitentiary
for terms ranging from five to eighteen
The white mob of four hundred who ac
complished this savage brutality and villainy
went clear and unmolested, no attempt hav
ing been made to arrest them and bring
them to justice, nor will there be. Can any
thing more outrageous be found among the
most bcrbarous and savage tribes on earth?
The history of the world may be challenged
for anything more fiendish than this. And
yet this occurred in a so-called enlightened
and civilized state of the American Union,
a land of alleged law and Christianity.
Clearly in Arkansas, or portions of it, col
ored people have no secured rights to enjoy.
There is nc safeguard for colored female
virtue, no protection for the living of colored
citizens. If a white; man, for any real, or
assumed indignity shoots down a colored
man, he goes without punishment. The
wife, the daughter may be ravished, and if
the husband, or father raises his hand in re
sentment he is shot down in cold blood and
that without remedy.
And this is the Christian civilization that
exists in a portion of a land supposed to be
irradiated by nineteen centuries of Religious
light and influence.
By all means send missionaries to India,
to China, to the Islands of the sea, convert,
civilize, and christianize the cannibal hea
then, but neglect and overlook the barbar
ous and savage cruelty perpetrated in por
tions of our land, at our own doors where
caimes are committed that would darken
hell itself. Have the rulers of the land in
their greed and strife for place and spoils

It seems there is stout opposition in Deleware
to the reduction of the Maryland marriage
license fee. Deleware has no license fee, but
the clergyman's fee is fixed by law. A Wil
mington paper explains the secret of the interest
taken in the matter across the state line to arise
from the fact that if the price of the Maryland
marriage license be reduced to the bagatelle of
sixty cents, no Deleware clergyman living within
ten miles of the Maryland line will be able to
depend upon wedding fees to keep h^m in shoo
blacking. The clergyman's fee in Deleware
TrrE American Medical Association in session

was debated with spirit, and strange as it may

Cumberland, Wis., May 8. —Spooner,
the division on the northern line of the
Omaha line, was pretty well burned down
this afternoon. The fire caught in John

then lowering his voice to a whisper he added:

result in Chicago July 8. His money has been

When I assure you that the person who wrote
this is one of John Kelly's right hand men and
one who is by no meens unfJ^udly to Tilden, you
will the better appreciate its full significance.
Many men in New York, Democrats as well as
Republicans, have ridiculed the idea of Flower
for President, but It begins to look more as

Heads More Like Fiction
New Yonrc, May —In the suit brought by
the New York, Chicago & St. Louis Railway
company against U. S. Grant, Jr., Ferdinand
Ward, U. S. Grant, James D. Fish, Wm. C.
Smith, Julian V. Davies and John 11. • Morris,- in
the supreme court. Judge Donahue 'thin after
noon granted an order requiring the defendants
to show cause, on the 12th Instant, why a receiv
er should not be appointed, and also why an in
junction should not be issued, and in the mean
time and until further order of the court, the
defendants and their agents, are restrained from
interfering with the partnership assetts of the
firm of Giant & Ward, from selling this name, or
appropriating the name to the payment of any
debts of the firm, without leave of the court.
The order and injunction was grantud upon com
plaint, and the affidavit of Wm. K. Vanderbilt,
president of the Xew Vorlc, Chicago & St. Louis
Railroad company. In his affidavit, Wanderbilt
says, about April 12th, 1884, the railroad company
made its promissory note, bearing date that day,
whereby, for value received, it promised to pay
Grani & Ward, §500,000. The note will be"
come due Jan. 1, 1835. On the 20th of April
the railroad company made another promissory
note, payable to the same linn, for B^oo,ooo,
which note also becomes payable Jan. Ist, 1885.
As collateral security for the payment of these
notes, the plaintiff deposited with Grant &
Ward 1,400 negotiable bonds of the railroad
company for $1,000 each, payment of which was
secured by a second mortgage upon its railroad.
Vanderbilt alleges, on information and belief,
that Grant & Ward upon receipt of these notes
and securities united these bonds indisciiuiinate-
ly with the securities belonging to other parties
for the purpose of borrowing money, and plain
tiff's property will become distributed among a
great number of persons and corporation?, who
will huve a claim or lien thereon as lenders of
money on security to Grant & Ward.
By this mingling up the secu
rities become liaule to be sold for debts for
which they were nor orieinally pledged to the
firm, and their identity is likely to be lost. The
defendants in Sent Julian Davies and John 11.
liorris are assignees. The plaintiff company de
sires to redeem its property from all lawful liens
and claims. Pending suit the plaintiff asks for
the appointment of a receiver for the firm
of Urant & Ward, to take charge of its property

The veteran hanker president, John Thomp

"It astonishes me how the stockholders can suf

country that have come to grief during the last

alarm which is now felt in relation to the safety

In consideration of the sum of $300,000', U. S.

the building and property on the site of the old
Booth theater for $285,000. Ferdinand Ward has
been speculating almost continually from the
time he entered the office of the superintendent
of the stock exchage. lie was then seventeen.
He began with the small speculations in wheat,
and produce exchange seats. He bought his first
seat twelve years ago for $800. He continued
buying seats, which he sold for $2,000 and 53,503.
He soon amassed about 530,000. Five years ago,
after he had married the daughter of the presi
dent of the Marine hank, he bought a house and
siables on Pierrepont street, Brooklyn, for whi< h
he pakl S.") 0,000. Then, it is said, he stopped
speculating in corn and cheese, to dabble in
western mines and government warrants.
"He had a blind pool in warrants," Henry
Clews said yesterday, recalling the gossip of
Wall street some years ago, "and bought war
rants wherever he could find them." His deal
ings in warrants are looked upon suspiciously,
but his mining transactions, as far as is known,
were all conducted above board. Ward's last
paying investment in mines was two years ago,
when he bought largely in the Evening Star
mine, and thereby he is said to have made
President Baker of the First National bank was

was drawn. "Do you intend to proceed crimin

ilr. Baker was asked, aud he said, "the bank
would not," but added, "I guess other »people
will proceed criminally against Ward." When
asked to explain his assertion he said, such was
the rumor on the street.
Mr. Davies, the assignee of the firm of Grnnt &

Mr. W. C. Smith is not included among the
persons making assignments, although he is re
garded as one of the partners of the firm. He
has had to bear the blunt of the business since
the doors were closed, and is the only person ac
cessable to callers. He said yesterday to a re
porter, "the assignee has been in possession for
some time, and we shall at once get to work and
ascertain exactly how we stand, as to this matter
of the securities, I think it will be settled satis
factorily. The Erie railroad will take care of all
its bonds and stocks which were placed with
the firm to dispose of. It will reclaim any that
may have been sold without authority from the
road. The New York, Chicago & St. Louis Kail
road company will do the same."
Gen. Grant was at his office for a few hours in
the middle of the day and left about 8 o'clock.
Between 1 and 2 he held a consultation with

Further details of the transaction between
Gen. Grant and U'm. 11. Vanderbilt were learned
yesterday. General Grant's visit to Vanderbilt
was made on Sunday, and the latter's check for
Blso,oouwas given. It is said that at the request of
Gen. Grant the check was duted as of Saturday,
and the check of Grant & Ward on the Marine
bank, Win. Vanderbilt agreed not to use for a
uay or t vo. It is not believed the ex-president
knew the state of the firm's affairs, and
\\ ard is credited with furnishing a satisfactory
explauation of the circumstances under
which Vanderbilt's consent was obtahied.
When presented the ceeck of Graut and Ward
had been rendered worthless by the two failures.
The day after the failure, General Graut called
on Vanderbilt at the latter's desire and it is
paid that assurances wme given lh>it he would be
fully protected in the mutter, even if great
sacrifices were necessary iv the drrection of
Mrs. Giant's property.
Frederick D. Grant, while not a member of
the tjut-pended firm, had his office with them, and
ha» been interested in their operations. When
asked regarding his assignment, he replied "I
can sny nothing about the matter, but I had
everything with them and suffer along with
them." Jesse R. Grant, another son of Gen.

An enormous amount of unsecured liabilities
of the firm of Grant & Ward exists, comprising
notes and simple receipts for money received for
speculation. A story told yesterday regarding
the operations of the firm, by those who are in a
position to become acquainted witn the facts, is
us follows; The firm started with the prestige
of Gen. Grant's name to aid the members in se
curing capital, and in inspiring confidence in
their ability and position. The capital wan money
raised on notes that the ex-president and James
I>. Fish had endorsed. To what extent the re
sponsibility of the conduct of affairs rests on.
Fish and upon Ward entirely cannot
be learned. It is not believed that Gen.
Grant, or IT. S. Grant, Jr., paid close attention to
the details of the copartnership. The agreement
provided that each member could withdraw
$3,000 a month. It is said the profits above that
sum being retained as capital. Neither
of the Grants is believed to have paid
closer atlenlioii to the details than the regular
drawing of their allowance. The scheme carried
out to obtain the most funds was based on al
-vances made by the linn tj contractors for Indian
and other supplies to the Gould firm, taking as
signments of claims from these men
and collecting upon them when the contracts
were approved in regular course of government
proceedure. By representations respe< ting these
contracts, heavy sums ot money were obtained
on notes ur receipts giving by the firm or indi
vidual' members. High rates of interest were
paid, and in many cases advances seemed for
only a few months. Confidence in the house,
however, caused many persons to let their
money be unclaimed for a longtime. It is stated a
good authority that there are outstanding, ne I r;
$8,000,000 of these unsecured obligations of tne
firm held between two individuals. It is said the
liabilities of this character will amount to about
$".,0i)0,()0(i. The Tribune also says: "Not only
are they, Grant 4 Ward, known to have re-hy
pothecated securities lodged with them on loans
by several railroad companies, but they have
obtained larger advances on some. oC these collat
erals than the amounts they had advanced. The
best information now puts their gross liabilities
at, not far from 910,000,000. Xo estimate can be
made of their ussets exclusive of loans they mnrle
on securities they repledged. No statement in
yet obtainable respecting the condition of the
Marine bank, and the prospect of final payment
to deposi'ors will be a matter of guess work
until the bank examiner has finished his report.

Quinct, 111., May G.—The game to-day be
tween the Q.uincys and the Stillwaters was an
easy walk over for the home nine from th'j iirst
inning to the close. Bradley was in the box for
the visitors,and the Quincya pounded him all over
the field, milking one three base hit and live two
baggers. The StiUwatera were out of hick dur
ing the entire game, making " i:' throws and
poor plays i mgh to give the Quincys sixteen
runs, only three of which were earned. Twelve
errors were charged against the visitors, nearly
all the costly ones in the Held. The Quincys played
a brilliant game. Qorinan in the box pitched with
out an error, and the Stillwatcrs succeeded in
getting but very few balls into the out field, as
they were unable to hit him. In the fifth in
ning the Stillwaters got a man on third and
another on lirst with none out, but the Quincys
by a series of faultless plays retired one of them
at the home plate, another at third and the last
player at first. Only four of the Stillwaters
rearhed third during the entire ga:ne. Fowler,
the lightning colored catcher for the Stilhvaters
had his foot spiked by a base runner at the home
plate, breaking the bone of his big toe. The
surgeon says it will be several days before he
can play again, but Fowler asserts positively
that he will be behind the bat again on Satur
day. The score to-day was Quincy 16, Still
