. Another Beecher is putting his oar into
the political waters. This time it is Thomas
X., a brother of Henry Ward. Rev. Tnoinas
K. Beecher thinks the Republicans will nom
inate Gen. Sherman for President. By what
logical process he reaches such a conclusion
is not known, and he probably does not
know himself. His wish, is only father to
the thought, or the prediction. Probably
"the man in the moon" is quite as likely to
be the candidate.
Col. R. O. Ikgeksoll is to defend the
sou of Minister Langston who is charged
with murder. Mr. Langston is one of the
most capable and able colored men that are
now upon the stage. He is fully the peer of
Douglass, Bruce and Greener. Mr. Lang
ston's son Frank, in a sudden quarrel killed
James Spencer, and in palliation self-de
fense is urged. Since the crime was com
mitted the youth had not been seen until the
arrival of his father from Hayti, when he
came forward and gave himself up for trial.
It is expected that the theory of self-defense
can be fuliy establised, but if not, convic
tion will doubtless go no farther than the
grade of manslaughter.
The death of Judah P. Benjamin in Paris
ast Wednesday is a living exemplification of
the story which became so famous during
the war, entitled, "A Man without a Coun
try." He resigned his seat in the United
States senate to join the southern confeder
acy, was secretary of war and finally secre
tary of state under Jeff Davis,
and when the confederacy collapsed
he declined to surrender. He became
"A Man without a Country," and engaged
•in the practice of law in London. He had
gone to Paris for medical treatment when he
died, an exile among strangers. Mr. Hale's
leading character in the brochure alluded to
was drawn from fancy, but it seems to have
been" a prophetic portraiture of Judah P. Ben
It is not often that the Globe has felt
called upon to appear as a defender of W. D.
Washburn, but the assaults upon him by the
Pioneer Press are so manifestly unfair that
the Globe comes to the rescue. The P.P.
abuses him for misrepresenting his
constituents by voting against' the
Morrison bill when every other member
of the delegation was true to the people?
As a matter of fact Mr. Washburn
was the only honest, square toed member
from Minnesota. He believes in the tariff
robbery and is manly enough to say so. He
favors the oppression of the many to enrich
the few, snd boldly declares that he will
sustain the Republican party in plundering
the people. ' ,
It is fair and manly when a man is a rob
ber to say so, and the Globe has much more
respect for Mr. Washburn than for Messrs.
White, Wakeiield, Strait and Nelson.
They are masquerading as friends of
the people, while they stood ready to

been necessary to retain it. They dodged j

WHAT $11 ALL TffE NAVY BE?
There is no doubt as to the inefficiency of
our navy, aud the necessity that something
should be done? There has been some dis
cussion lately in congress, and out of it, as
to what should occur in case England taking
umbrige at something, should send over her
largest inn clad and bombard New York.
We have no fleet, and there is no way we
could prevent any such attempt, say those
who advocate the building of a navy, and
they continue, in order to meet any such
possibility, we must provide ourselves with
a fleet. Let us look at this a moment. The
largest armed ship iv the British navy is the
She carries four eighty-one ton guns, each
throwing a missile of nearly a ton in weight.
She has two turrets and is so arranged that
her guns cover every point of the horizon.
Her monster guns are hoisted into place and
lowered to be loaded by hydraulic machinery,
there is no point at which she is vulnerable.
An enemy might be all over her decks, and
yet could do her no more harm than a ily on
the back of a turtle could reach the life of the
reptile below. Her armor at vital points is
twenty-four inches in thickness, she has
eight thousand horse power, a maximum
speed of fourteen knots an hour and cost
nearly three and a half million dollars.
Suppose this vessel anchored within shel
ling distance of New York, and then what
are we going to do about it? How large a
naval force would it require to destroy the
monster or drive her from the position which
she has taken before the city l.
Suppose we had fifty steel cruisers
of what value would they be against
this engine of destruction? A score of small
ships might surround her and batter her for
a week without at all materially damaging her
offensive or defensive qualities. Shall we
construct a monster of the same dimensions
to encounter her! and if we undertake this,
how many years will be required to complete
The English were seven . years in building
the Inflexible. To accomplish the same end
would require us at least as many years, and
would probably, measuring by our average
rate of expenditures, cost from five to ten
millions of dollars. The Globe does not un
dertake to answer its own questions. The
duty of doing this belongs to the gentlemen
in congress who are announcing as a possi
bility the appearance of the Inflexible before
New York and the necessity of constructing
a fleet to meet such an emergency. These
are the ones to tell the country what kind of
a fleet they would recommend to cope with
the Inflexible, or the devastation, which is
almost as formidable as the other.
We should have a fleet, beyond all ques
tion, but in view of what is placed before the
country by the congressional terrorists, w rho
hear in imagination the twelve hundred
pound shells of the Inflexible shrieking over
New York, the question is what kind
of a fleet must we have to meet this
possible emergency? Spending a hundred
millions or so on light armed, swift sleet
cruisers would afford not one particle of
protection against the particular danger
which ia now being aired in congress.
REPUBLICAN AMMI'XITION FOR
Should the Republicans nominate in June
any of the men whose names are now prom
inently mentioned as candidates, it will not
be necessary for the opposition to spend any
time in hunting up Republican evidences of
their uufitness for the place. Democratic
editors should at the present time preserve
files of leading Republican newspapers, and
from these, when the time shall come, they
will bo able to get all the facts they need for
demonstrating the entire unfitness of the
Supposing that Blame should be nomina
ted, the files of the Chicago Tribune of 1876
will furnish all the material necessary to
prove Blame, of all the men in the country,
is the one who is least entitled to become
president of this country. It will be found
in these files that Blame was mixed up in a
half dozen jobbing operations, that he used
his influence as a member of congress
to make money and that in
no essential respect was he
any better than a common confidence oper
ator. Tho files of the paper for that year
prove beyond all question, from the stand
point of the editor, that Blame had not
enough honesty to be entrusted with the
management of the finances of a junk shop.
In case Edmunds should receive the nom
ination, the country, in search of informa
tion as to his antecedents, will have no
trouble in finding all that is neces
sary. The columns of the Republican
newspapers will furnish the facts as to his
being a partner with Blame in trading con
gressional influence for railway and other
stocks. From the same sources there will be
no trouble in learning that Edmunds, while
professing to be a total abstainer, is in the
habit of taking innumerable nips; that
he has made a vast fortune by
acting as an attorney before the supreme
court for great corporations; that he is cold,
unfeeling, miserly and devoted only to the
acquisition of wealth.
In case Logan should be made the stand
ard bearer of the Republican horde, the Re
publican newspapers will still furnish all the
ammunition necessary for tbe use of the op
position. The latter can find in these news
papers, the sworn evidence as -to his enlist
ment of men for the confederate service at
the breaking out of the war, and in the
same direction they can learn that Logan
is ignorant as a donkey; that he cannot
use decent English; that his speeches are all
prepared for him and but for his shrewd and
amiable wife, he would scarcely have reached
above the rank of a town constable.
What is true of all these men is equally
true of Arthur. The opposition will not
need to rack its brain or memory to find rea
sons why Arthur is wholly unfit for the posi
tion of president. In the fruitful files of
the Republican journals will be found all
that is necessary for his condemnation.
It will be found on consulting these author
ities that Arthur is only a small bummer
politician; that he was made president by the
pistol of an assassin,and not by the choice or
even the desire of his party. The Republi
can journals will furnish all the information
necessary,as to his inemcnecy,his ingratitude,
his dandyism, his lack of breadth of compre
hension, and, in fine, all the numerous rea
sons there are why he is totally unfit for the
occupancy of the White house.
In short, the Democratic press and speak
ers will find that the approaching campaign
will be one of the easiest that the party has
known. The men whom the Republicans
are likely to nominate are men who, unfor
tunately for themselves, have bad records,
the particulars of which will be furnished by
the Republican archives.
The opinions that Mr. Matthew Arnold ac
quired during his money-getting iectnre tour in
the United States ars pretty well understood. By
way of contrast attention is called to the im
pressions formed by George W. Cable, who was
passing from point to point upon a lecturing mis
sion,at the same time that Mr. Arnold was diffusing
such sweetness and light cs he brought across
the waters with hkn. Mr. Cable returned to hi s
home at X L -«- Orleans along in the last days of
April, afte^r, as the Times-Democrat remarks, a
very successful lecture tour through the north
and west. "Since the season began," says the
paper mentioned, "Mr. Cable has appeared upon
the platform seventy-one times, and from first to
last read before nearly '10,000 people. He speaks
in the most enthusiastic terms of the cordial
manner in which he was received at every point
of his travels, which were extended over a route
of more than 7,000 miles by rail alone. He was
piuticalarly struck with the amount of culture in
the outlying towns, East and West, in a number
of which, whose populqtion did not exceed 1,5p0
souls, he drew audiences of four and five hund
red people." The difference between the two

the walking epigram, utterly devoid of the milk
of human kiudness.
An lowa Jndge refused the petition of the wife
of a drunkard for a divorce.because it came out in
the testimony that the man was intemperate be
fore she married him and she was aware of the
fact. In refusing the decree the learned Judge
said to the unfortunate wife: '-You voluntarily
chose a drunkard for a husband, and you should
discharge the duties of a drunkard's wife. His
failure to keep a pledge of reformation made be
fore marriage does not justify you in deserting
him. Having knowingly married s drunkard you
make yourself content with the sacred relation
ship." We understand that justice is always
blind, but here is a case where a Judge shows he
hasn't got common sense.
The secretary of the National Temperance
committee, Rev. D. C. Babcoek, makes the fol
lowing statement: "I took paius when in Wash
ington to get reliable information about Mr.
Edmunds, and I am sure that his personal habits
are such that the temperance people of the eoun
try will not support him." This is a good deal
to the point, though carefully stated. It will
be in order for Mr. Edmunds to write a-letter to
Mr. Babeock, as ho did to Mr. Phelps in regard
to his railroad bonds. The country would like
to know what brand of whisky Mr. Edmunds, in
the light of his experience, can most recom
mend, and any other little particulars it may be
his pleasure to add, to elucidate the condition
and quality of his "personal habits."
The ancient Mr. Eaton, of ye woodeno nutt
mege state, appears to be jealous of the vener
able Mr. Kelley, the royal arch protectionist of
the House. In the course of a speech opposing
the Morrison bill, Mr. Eaton screamed into the
ear of the House that "no matter how wrong
protection, the fact remains that it has cheapen
ed everything under God's heaven that man,
woman or child uses." Such language is as ele
gant as a Chinese wall and quite as logical.
The Chamberlain of New York City had a

The Chicago Inter-Ocean has the impudence
and amazing frankness to say that the Repub

Democratic methods. "The New York Repub

Work on the Wisconsin Central.
The Wisconsin Central has commenced
work on its road, in Minnesota and just out
side the limits of St. Paul. A largre number
of men and teams commenced work yester
day, at a poiut near Silver lake, two miles
northeast of tbe Harvester works, and other
gangs of men and teams are to be put to
work at different points as fast as they can
be got. A number of shanties have been
erected near Eugene Ides farm. The work
is to be hurried forward as fast as possible,
and as stated some weeks ago the trains will
probably come in over the St. Paul & Dulutb
track from a point near Phalen lake, and
will be furnished for the present with freight !
facilities by the St. Paul & Manitoba road.
The only matter to be settled is the compen
sation to be paid the St. Paui & Dulutb. road
for track facilities. This the Wisconsin Cen
tral has now under consideration.
Fink, Pool Commissioner.
New York, May 9.—The trunk line presi
dents met to-day in Commissioner Fink's
office. It was announced after the meeting
that the matter of the resignation of Com

would continue to act as pool commissioner.
It is understood he withdrew his resignation
in consequence of the action of the* Balt

Pavinsr Third Street.
A large delegation of Third street property
owners were before the Board of Public
Works last evening ' in "inquiry meeting"
relative to the assessment for paving and
curbing that street from Sibley street to
Pleasant avenue, which includes also its
bringing up to the regulation standard of
street grade. The real cause of the excite
ment was the supposition that the original
plan of building up new retaining walls on
the side of the street fronting the river at a
cost of $15,000 as a permanent and lasting
base to the new curbing, was thought to be
a rather too heavy assessment load for front
foot owners in connection with the cost of
the paving aud curbing improvement. But
all quieted down and went off happy when
the Engineer explained that tho $15,000 plan
had been abandoned and that the cost of the
support to the curbing walls which would
have to be built would not exceed $2,500.
What now seems to be a vexed question
is the necessary construction of stone walks
to meet the curbing on Third street in place
of the plank nuisance, and which the. prope
erty owners are compelled to build by ordi
nance passed by the council last fall. Some
of the property owners desire to lay one kind
of stone and some another as it vow looks,
while it is thought that a Joseph's coat of
many colors will detract from the appear
ance of the street improvement. It is hoped,
however, that some general plan will be hit
upon to secure uniformity in this particular.
President Allen, of the council, who was
present, stated that a Pennsylvania stone
was being used extensively in New York
which was considered vastly superior for
walks to the Ohio gre.}- stone, which former
could be delivered in St. Paul at half the fxwt
of the latter, and which he was very much
Reuben Warner, who is now in New York,

The General aud Mrs. Grant Said to Have

But The Grant Fund, Held by Trustees,
Will Yield Them Over $15,000
New York, May 9.—The suspicion grows that
the Grant & Wurd failure is much more serious
than at lirst suspected. A well known member
of the stock exchange to-day said: " For four or
five months I have heard rumors of queer trans
actions by Graut & Ward. I don't think $8,000,
--000 by any means an extravagant estimate of
their liabilities, as my belief is they exceed SlO.
--000,000; When the failure was announced I said
it would be the largest Wall street ever saw. and
1 am more firmly convinced than ever of the truth
of the estimate. What the assets will be no one
can say, but they are comparatively small, and
the result of the investigation will cause Eur
A clerk of Grant & Ward said the amount of
liabilities would undoubtedly be very large, as
they are discovering new business every day.

men are in for £500,000 and others for still larg
William C. Smith, the Btock exchange mem
erof the firm said: '-I do not think the state
ment of the assignee will be reached till the latter
part of next week. I don't think the amount
of the liabilities will reach $800,000, although
that is a matter of which I have no knowledge.
The figures are all gossip, aud are, I think, ex
travagently large. The railroad companies which
have received loans on securities which have
been transfered to other persons, are amply pro
tected aud lose nothing. The loss fall chiefly on
individuals who have invested money with the
firm. This business was conducted by Ward.
Of course Gen. Grant and sou have known these
transactions, but I don't think they were fully
aware of the large amount involved.
They have been led on by Ward, and
will, of course, lose very heavily.
Fred Grant was interviewed, and said he was
looking for employmeHt, as he had nothing to do
now, and it would depend on whether anything
was saved from the wreck whether he went into
business for himself.

The Brooklyn Eagle says: "Persons passing
along Pierrepont street this morning were start
led to see two well dressed persons grasp the
head of a horse attached to a coupe, and order
the carriage to stop. JUany thought they were
to witness a highway robbery, but they were
mistaken. The men were detectives, and the
inmate of the coupe was Ferdinand Ward. The
detectives produced papers from their pockets,
and evidently could not find the one they were in
search of. One of the men said to -\lr. Ward,
'You are our prisoner,' and it was when Ward
asked for proof of their authority the search for
the warrant was begun. A troubled look over
spread the countenances of both men, and the
pockets of each were turned inside out and the
bundle of papers the^y carried was examined about
seventeen times to no avail. They gazed discon
solately after the coupe as Mr. Ward was rapidly
driven toward the Xew York ferry. Ward had
not been out of the house more than half an hour
when the deputy sheriff arrived with a writ of
attachment for the furniture and other effects.
As Ward could not be served with the paper it
was nailed on the front door aud excited curiosi
ty. The deputy made an inventorjbof the articles
in the house, while the family commenced to pre
pare to depart. The house is elaborately and ex
pen.-ively furnished. The Wards have lived in
the house about five years, and four weeks
ago their only child was born, He was christened
Ferdinand Grant Ward, after Gen. Grant. The
refuge of the Ward family will be the home of
Ilrs. Ward's mother, Mrs. Green, 37 Monroe
place, and thither the dispossessed ones jour
neyed. Mrs. Green is the widow of a former
cashier of the Marine bank. The suit on which
the attachment was issued is brought by the
Marine bank against tbe firm of Grant & Ward,
and Gen. Grant is made co-defendant. The suit
is for §700,000."
THE ORAXT FUND SAFE.
Georue Jones, of the Xew York Times says:
"Gen. Grant's fund of $350,000 is absolutely
safe. Hitherto we have paid the interest an
nually. After the Ist of May each year has
found the general in possession of 515,140 inter
est, in full, on the investment. Hereafter we
pay him quarterly, not only because he needs
money, but becuuse we do not mean that any one
elne shall lay hands on it. I was with Gen.
Grant on Sunday last, and he was in complete
ignorance of the impending disaster. Other
than this fund he does not possess a dollar, and
more than that, he is deeply aud almost irre
trievably in debt. What he did in Wall street
he did for his sons, and it seems too r-ad that, ihis
man, who has done so much for his country
should be left in his old age dependent on the
nation he helped to save."
Judge Donahue.of the supreme court, appoint
ppinted Julieq T. jJiivies receiver of the partner
ship property and assets of the firm of Grant &
Ward, in the suit, brought against the members
of the firm by .fohn 11. Jiorris. The property
which Davies will thus have charge of, include-*
thal which iie took as assignee. He qualified iv
the sun of $50,000, with Thomas Defining and
Bradley Martin are sureties. Hamilton Cole is
appointed referee to take an account of ;:1! assets.
The plaintiff alleges that the assignment did not
operate the pass of the share of Jos. D. Fish in
the firms property, and also that
at the time of the assignment
there was in possession of defendants a large
quantity of property, which they had as bail or
in trust for other persons, and the legal title to
which did not in fa'^t. pass by assignment, but
the loss or misappropriation of which would re
sult in creating liabilities against the firm, and
the firm's members, to which the estate of Fish
might be compelled to contribute, or in which
he ini'-'ht be, required to share. He therefore
claimed that the estate of the firm was practi
cally without a custodian.
Judge Donahue also granted an attachment
against the property of Ferdinand Ward and jas.
D. Fish, in the suit of the Marine bank against
the firm of Giant &' Wwdjf to recover $700,000,
which amount the complainant alleges was paid
the defendants by the bank.
The resignation of Jas. D. Fish as receiver of
the insolvent Globe Life Insurance company
was accepted by Jndge Donahue. In his letter
or resignation, Fish gays: "1 am very deeply in
volved and busied with business complications
iv which the public has such interest f.a calls
for all my energy and time. I have carried
forward my trust as receiver of the Globe Life
Insurance company to a point where another

[From the Tribune of Saturday. ]
JSfew York, May O.—A meeting of the com
mittee appointed by the clearing house associa
tion to report such amendments to the constitu
tion and by-laws as will prevent the recurrence of
the case of the Marine and First National banks,
was held yesterday. The committee consists of
Frederick D. Tappen, chairman; Jacob D. Vcr
milye, George S. Coe, G. G. Williams and Jas.
D. Woodward. President G. F. Barker, of the
First National bank, appeared with counsel. He
protested against the First National bank being
held responsible for $215,000 of worthless checks
drawn on it by Grant & Ward, which came
through the Marine hank. Ferdinand Ward had
only $I,SOO to his credit in the bank. It was
agreed that this course placed the First National
bank at great disadvantage, in fact,
if this thing were allowed, any
bank would be at the mercy of any
one of its depositors, no matter how small his de
posit, who could get another bank to accept his
checks for a large amount, and others send
theirs through the clearing house. The only
proper way it was argued, was to assess the
amount drawn by Grant & Ward on the First
National pro rata on all the banks in the clearing
house association. All the members of the com
mittee give their full views for what was neces
sary to be done to prevent, as far as possible, a
recurrence of a case like that, from which the
First National had suffered. Requiring that all
checks above a certain amount, to be certified,
was suggested as one means to lessen
the risk. So much of the business of the city
i.ml coUntry, and especially Wall street, is done
on credit, it was thought advisable to go slowly
in-the matter. The individual case of the First
National bank against the Marine bank, it was
decided, would have to be disposed of by the
Clearing House association. The matter will be
discussed at length there. The committee will
meet again on Monday, nothing definite having
been determined upon.
"The failure of the Marine bank will be as
complete as ever you saw," said Cornelius Mor
rison, of the firm of Wait, Creighton & Morrison,
8f Wall street, who has been a depositor in the
Marine bank fo* over twenty years. "Fish
owned five-eighths of all the stock in the Marine
bank, and owned of course by that board of di
rectors. Fish and Ward have been into the wild
est wildcat schemes. One thing they were about
to go into when this crash came was to purchase
the old exchange buildings. I know of forty
persons sent there by us who will lose all they
have in the world, or nearly all. Our neighbor,
John Wood, an Irishman, who has §8,500
deposited there, the savings of a life time, losses
all. I know a young business man. just starting
in, who loses 85,000 deposited on . Saturday, and
he will have to give up business. In my opinion
about all there will be left, when we know it all,
will be the safe and the office furniture. Fish
removed away from the bank over two weeks ago
and went into apartments at Mystic flats. He
knew the crash was coming and so did Ward.
Many hard things are said of Fish. A depos
itor whose place of business is within sight of
the bank, said to a Tribune reporter: Much
comment has been caused by the fact that Fish
had such a large number of visitors in his pri
vate rooms, over the bank, especially in view of
the character of many of them. I have, said he,
seen six or seven persons, such as I speak of, go
to his rooms in one day.
Bird W. Spencer, treasurer of the Erie com
pany, said last evening, when he left the office of
the Erie road he knew of no depreciation in
value of second mortgage bonds, and informa
tion had not reached him of the least. If there
was any falling off it was simply a Wall street
matter and had no substantial basis, because the
value of property was unaffected. Any decline
was not due to the fact that the road inul a
balance of money in its favor at the Marine Na
tional bank. Spencer added, "Pres
ident Jewett has mide his official
statement that less than SH'O,OOO of
the company's money is in the hands of the
bank, and he declares that he has no fears of the
safety of the funds. No unfavorable effect is to
be anticipated from any possibility, that the June
interest on the second mortgage bonds will not
be paid. The meeting of the directors regarding
the passing of the June interest has been held,
and none will be held for that purpose. As sure
as the world goes around, and the sun rises on
June 1, the interest on the bonds will lie paid.
Sympathy is felt for Gen. Grant, who has
transferred hisjproperty to Wm. 11. Vanderbilt to
protect him on a worthless check for $150,000
accepted by him in return for his own. The
general's transfer includes two houses in Wash
ington,a house in Philadelphia and a farm of con
siderable size in the suburbs of St. Louis. Miss
Grant is also said to have transferred her proper
ty to Vanderbilt. It includes a cottage at Long
Branch, and her house in East GCth street.
Instances multiply of deceptive practices in
the name of the firm, to carry on wild schemes
in which interest on "profits" were paid. Those
who invested in them are out the principal they
paid in. Mr. Chaffer's deposit of securities to
the amount at least of $500,000 was secured
from him within a recent date, Ward depicting
the great prosperity of the firm. J. H. Work,
secretary of the Mexican Southern railroad and
nephew of Frank Work,the Wall street operator,
is said on pood authority to be a creditor of
Grant & Ward to the extent of §1,000,000, and
his friends are also victimized
to the extent of about 5i,000,000.
It is asserted by Gen. Grant's friends, that he
supposed, up to the time of the collapse, he had
to his credit in the firm profits of §240,000. Ward
lived in a style that would require a larger in
come than $86,000 a year. Persons who ought
to know, s-aid. Fish insisted on receiving his
"profits,"' and drew out of the firm §500,000 in
1883 and §300,000 this year.

31 vs. De Long the Last Witness.
Washington*, May 9.—Before the Jean

Dr. Collins was continued. He re-affirmed
the statement that Lieut. Lumly told him he
would object to any question before the court
of inquiry which might reflect on a dead

Lieut. Lumly told him it was Secretary
Chandler's wish that the investigation be
hushed up, and also stated that he "was told
the charges against his brother would not be
presented to the court of inquiry unless he
persisted in his course.
The evidence the witness gave of the con

Mrs. Emma De Long, widow of Capt. De
Long, testified that her husband studied the
provision lists of other Arctic expeditions
before obtaining provisions for the Jeannette
and endeavored to secure the best. His idea
was that the officers and men should fare
alike. The route of the expedition was
chosen by Bennett, after consultation with
Dr. Petermann. Witness thought the ship
was as carefully and completely furnished
with clothing and provisions as was
possible. She felt perfectly satisfied
that everything was done for the re
lief of her husband that could be done. She
had a conversation with Bennett about the
expedition the day Dauchower reached New
York. Bennett told her he had heard that
very strict discipline was enforced on the
Jeaanette,but he wanted the expedition to be
strictly military. He also said, some criti
cisms had been made upon Capt. DeLong
for stopping on the way for fhe purpose of
exploring Bennatt island, but DeLong would
not have been the man Bennett took him
for if lie passed by any undiscovered land
Without examining it. In conclusion Ben

death the most heroic thing he knew. Thie
closed the testimony and the arguments will

A Serious Accident at Chillicothe, O.—All
Over the Field.
The Minnesota base ball men met with defeat
again yesterday, the Minneapolis club at Mil
waukee, by a score of 9 to 0, and St. Paul at
Peoria, by a score of 15 to 4. The Stillwater.s
played at Quincy on Tuesday, losing by a score
of 7to 4. The telegraph failed to report the
game for some reason.
The Minneapolis club made very bad work of
it and apparently went all to pieces. McCor
mick, the great Syracuse Star pitcher, upon
whom they relied with so much confidence, was
compelled to quit the box and give way to
Caruthers. The changes made during the game
did not help them much. The first two games
played by the Minneapolis club with the Milwau
kees were so close that many believed the former
would take the last game. In this they were dis
appointed. The last game was the worst game
the Minneapolis men played, and they fared
worse than the St. Paul men did.
MINNEAPOLIS SHUT OUT.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Milwaukee, May 9.—Minneapolis failed to
make a run to-day, but Milwaukee scored 9. Two
runs were made in the first inning, one in the
third and sis in fourth. The visitors had Mc-
Cormick, the Syracuse Star pitcher, in the box
for six innings, but he retired to left field and
Carnthers took his place. Morrissey pitched
for the home team. The Milwaukees lost the
toss, and Hogan opened the game and got
a life on a fumble by the third baseman. The
second baseman muffed a fly popped up by
Behel, and two Milwaukees were on
bases. Hogan -was put out In
running, and Behel-came in collision with Miller,
the Minneapolis catcher in running home, injur
ing him so severely that a brief cessation in the
game was necessary. The plate was reached in
safety, however. Sexton made the other run.
In the fourth inning the Minneapolis team made
several changes, Iteid to second base, and Fisher
coming in to catch. Griffin, of the Milwaukees,
went out on first, but Dunn and Morrissey made
bases on the third baseman's wild throw. Loftus
struck to shortstop, who threw to third, but
struck the Milwaukee runner in
the back, and three men were safe
on bases. Broughton hit a grounder to short
stop, -who fumbled it, and Dunn scored. Again
the bases were full. Roberts struck to center
field, bringing in Morrissey and Loftus. Hogan
made a clean hit and Broughton and Roberts
scored. Ilogan got homcjon Behels .base hit.
This ended the scoring. Fisher, of Minneapolis,
got to second in the fifth inning, but was retired
at third. Miller got to second ana Nichols to
first on balls, but Isaacson,-Nichols and Baker
went out, leaving the two men on bases. The

Manager Tuthill, go he was not engaged.
Dickey Pearce, of Brooklyn, has resigned his
position as umpire in the Northwestern league
and accepted a similar ofhVe in the Eastern
league. B. F. Young, of Cleveland, has been
appointed to fill the vacancy.
The Milwaukee Sentinel of Friday administers
the following rebuke to the manager of the home
club: "Manager McKee's loud denunciation of
a decision of the umpire, during yesterday's
game, caused considerable adverse comment. It
was said that if the umpire made a wrong deci
sion (which is very doubtful), Manager "McKee
should have selected some other place than tho
grandstand to express his disapprobaiion."
The Milwaukee Sentinel states that the St.
Paul club has secured another catcher, named
Bandle, who was to meet the club at Peoria.
Bundle, more than a week ago, was made an offer
to join the St. Paul club, but, as was then under
stood, declined to accept the same. He may
have reconsidered his determination and yonc to
Peoria. If so the management in St. Paul have
not been informed of the fact.
The report that J. H. Mnrch, of Minneapolis,
would succeed Ben. Tuthill in the management
of the Minneapolis base ball team, proves to be
unfounded. The rumor originated in St. Louis
and Manager Tuthill immediately enclosed a
clipping containing the allegation to the Minne
