Cracks at Davis Continue to Come
In Trom All Quarters of
The crop of candidates and aspirants for
offices in the gift of the governor and the
legislature increases so rapidly that it is
difficult to keep track of all the men whose
ambitions are now running wild all over
the state, and who are flying about with
petitions eagerly seeking for signers. There
are few. counties without a candidate, and
the list has grown to appalling propor
tions. The Globe has taken pains,
through its reporters and its corps of cor
respondents throughout the state, to collect
all obtainable information in regard to these
aspirants and the certainty or probability of
their appointment or election. The list
which is printed herewith is certainly ac
curate and reliable, although it is not en
tirely full. When the reports from the
back counties come in there aie sure to be
auditions made. But it embraces all the
candidates who have any chance to win. In
the compiling of this matter considerable of
political interest has been developed. Gov.
McGill has selected his successor as insur
ance commissioner in the person of Charles
Shaudrew, his present deputy. This is re
liable and direct. Shandrew's successor
will be W. 1L Todd, of the Redwood Falls
Reveille, who was one of the original Mc-
Gill boomers. J. K. Moore, of St. Peter,
lias been definitely decided upon as the gov
ernor's private secretary, and W. 11. Angell I
will remain as executive clerk. This i
is . all the definite information that i
has leaked out. The contest
for adjutant general, it is believed, lies
between Maj. Seeley, of Lake City, and EL
A. Norton, of Minneapolis. The railroad
couimissionersiiips are all at sea. There
are a host of candidates. One of McGill's
intimates gives it out that the next board
will consist of Gen. Becker. ex-Gov. Austin
and John L. Gibbs. H. M. Knox, it is
thought will be reappointed public exam
iner; likewise W. EL 11. Taylor as librar
ian. The' disposal of the office of superin
tendent of public instruction is in the dark.
It is still believed that Gen. Flower will
get the oil Inspectorship, although there is
renewed talk of a change in the former
agreed plan. The wardenship of the peni
tentiary excites more interest on account of
the reported intention of McGill to give it
to H. G. Stordock, of Wilkin county, who
was promised a good place. The warden
ship is to be given him because no room
could be found for him on the board of
railroad commissioners. It has not been
understood that there was to be any oppo
sition to Reed. Kice is believed to have
the inside track for the dairy commissioner
ship, but there is no reliable information
on this point The list of candidates for
the various positions is as follows. The

WILL. HE, get THERE?
An Estimate by One of. Davit' Man*
afferfLikewise Several Citizen-.
There does not seem to be any limit of
endurance or persistence in the anatomy of
the man who figures on the senatorial
situation. Nearly every man you meet has
a little list, and he has the result figured up
so nicely— and gives so many reasons for
the faith that is in him— that you cannot
help but believe that he is right. It is un
doubtedly true that there is a large
element of uncertainty in the make-up
of the legislature which is to meet next
week. If instructions were carried out, or
if all calculations heretofore made would
not go amiss, Gov. Davis would be elected
senator. The preponderance of sentiment
seems to be in favor of the idea that he will
be. But there are plenty of shrewd and well
posted men who are positive that he will
not be. Davis' managers claim that he will
have not only enough votes to nomi
nate him in caucus, but he will
have a majority of the members
of the whole legislature. On the other
hand, it is as positively contended that he
cannot hold a majority of the Republicans
and control the caucus. Opinions differ
widely on this point, but Davis and his
managers appear confident. One of Davis'
lieutenants snowed a GLOBE reporter last
uight a list of members who, he claimed,
were personally pledged to Davis, and
could not be changed under any circum
stances. The total footed up sixty- five.
This was not a majority of the entire leg
islature, but there were enough additional
who could be -epended upon to make up
the necessary number some of them Demo
crats—as, for instance, Whiteman, of 'Du
luth, and Hendrickson. of Ramsey. Those
who were on the list he had, however,
would stick to the end. The list was as
Hixon, of Grant; Wallmark. of Chisago;
Clark, of Cottonwood: Ward, of Waseca;
Shuler, of Hennepin; Rogers and Seheffer,
of Ramsey; Low, of Murray; Johnsrud,

In the Hands of His Friends.
Senator S. J. K. McMillan was seen last
evening by a Globe reporter at the Mer
chants hotel,- where he is stopping during
his holiday visit at home. He said that
when he came home he had only intended
to remain until the first of next week, and
had not yet changed his plans, as he wanted
to be in Washington as soon after the sen
ate met as possible. Possibly he mg it
stay over until Wednesday. He saiu ne
had no outside organization in the interest
of his re-election as senator, but some of his
friends were of course interested in the
matter. A good many of the legislators
were strangers to him, and no harm would
be done in meeting them and at least giving
them that much opportunity for acquaint
ance, but not much could be done until the
legislature was. organized. Mr. McMillan
did not say who would have charge of his
arrangements when .he had returned to
Washington, but thought his friends would
look after that The senator declined to
commit himself when asked to define his
position in regard to the caucus.
The Davis Advance Guard.
Politicians are less non-committal : this
year than heretofore about the hotels. Sev
eral expressions were audible yesterday, as
Senator Albert Seheffer— l shall vote for
C. K. Davis. My second choice is Gordou E.
Representative E. A. Hendrickson — My first
and second choice for senator is C. K. Davis.
I shall certainly vote for W. R. Merriam for
Senator W. B. Brown, of Pipestone l shall
certainly support C. K. Davis.
Representative W. R. Merriam — C. K.
Davis, of course. There will not be any ne
cessity for a second ballot even.
Representative D. J. Knox, of Aitkin— l
will support C. K. Davis.
Representative W. R. E<tes, of Madelia— l
shall vote for C. K. Davis for senator. I can't
tell yet whom 1 shall vote for for speaker.
Representative 'E. Mattson, of Brecken
ridge — am pledged to nobody. I shall . give
my support to tho best man.
James H. Drake— Walt until the Fifth dis
trict turns loose.
Senator W. G. Ward, of — Cushman
K. Davis first, last and all the time.
Surveyor General Mart Chandler, of Red
Wing— Knute Nelson's got it all fixed up.
; Soured on Davis.
A Fillmore county man made the follow
ing remarks ■ yesterday: The convention
that nominated our sis members of the
legislature indorsed C. K. Davis for senator,
and had Davis stayed at — kept away
from our "district and county — and not un
corked himself for John A. Lovely and a
protective tariff, the people of Fillmore
county would gladly acquiesce in the vote
ST. FAIIUi FRIDAY MORNING, J DECEMBER 31, ISSu
of their six representatives for v. him for
senator. On the first ballot Gov. Davis
will receive the six votes from Fillmore
county. If he fails of . an election, then
three votes that can be named, and possibly
all, will desert him. Gov. . Davis .is at
variance with our people upon the question
of the tariff. We look for the election of
Davis, but recognize the fact that Senator
McMillan is strong with the people of this
state: and the fact that Senator McMillan
fills the place once occupied by Roscoe
Conkling, as chairman of the committee on
commerce, is an honor for Minnesota. -':";. '•
An Albert Lea estimate of Davis: When
four of the present, and, indeed, all of our
next congressmen, support a measure for a
reduction of the tariff, it would seem curi
ous to send a man to represent us in the
senate who goes over the country prating
about the glories of the tariff under which
we are suffering.
Pine county contributes this to the gen
eral estimate of Davis: Hon. Henry
Smith, our representative, is a Democrat, I
and will undoubtedly oppose C. K. Davis,
as it is generally understood that Davis
went a long ways out of his path to insult
the Democrats in 'the late campaign. The
Davis boom in the Thirty-eighth district had
its rise and fall during the campaign and is
now as fiat as a prairie. .» : ~. _■.
C. Cooley, of Madelia, says of Davis: "He
is well liked, but if his position on the tariff
question had been understood, the people
would not have favored him. But early in
the canvass the people considered his state
ments to be sound on the tariff question.
There is not one high tariff man in one
thousand in this section."
Dodge Center also has an impression in
regard to Davis. A citizen of that place
said yesterday: "Early in. the season ex-
Gov. Davis was the only one thought of for
United States senator here among Repub
licans. His speeches during the canvass
on the tariff were not what the people want,
and in consequence he has lost ground."
The Washington Delegation.
A Stillwater man at the Merchants yes
terday relieved himself in this fashion:
"Washington county legislators are close
as clams on the question of United States
senator, but each is solid against a high
tariff man. None such need apply to them,
for a dead certainty. Of course, being
Democrats, they do not deem it proper or
necessary to discuss the question of voting
for a Republican. There will be four votes
from our county for some good Democrat
from the start. Should the contingency
arise where the state of Minnesota would
be manifestly benefited by the election of
some conservative Republican of tariff re
form views, the Washington members could
be trusted. Were the contest to be between
Davis and McMillan there is but little doubt
that the delegation could be induced to
throw their votes for the latter. McMillan
was an old settler in Washington county,
and the people remember him. If it
should be between Knute Nelson and
Davis, the tariff views of Nelson,
who. secure in the bulwark of an impregna
ble majority, could always afford to do as
he pleased, and who pleases to favor tariff
reform, would count for very much. In
short, after the ultra-rabid protection speech
Davis made at Stillwater last fall he could
not expect many Democratic votes."
The Dodge County Members.
Special to the Globe.
Kas.son, Dec. 30.— The Dodge county
representatives to the legislature are di
vided as to the choice for United States
senator— E. N. Dodge, senator-elect, be
ing opposed to C. K. Davis, while George
11. Arnold is an outspoken advocate of
Davis' election. Mr. Dodge is an anti-pro
tectionist rind an anti-monopolist, and has
been heard to declare that the only reason j
that would cause him to vote for Davis for j
senator would be the united voice of his j
constituents, which Mr. Dodge knows is l
overwhelmingly against Davis on account j
of his high tariff, protection sentiments, as
enunciated upon the stump last fall and j
rebuked by the people in the defeat of his j
candidates. Mr. Dodge is utterly opposed
to Mr. Washburn as being a monopolist |
and being connected with the railroad and j
wheat rings, and in this lie classes J. S. I
Pillsbury. It is safe to say that he will
come to St. Paul opposed to these, and
seek in his candidate one uiitrammeled by
these influences. Mr. Arnold, representa
tive-elect, is an active, energetic business
man of large experience, and is believed to
prefer Davis purely upon personal grounds.
Senator Buckmnn's Little Scheme.
A representative from one of the counties
in the Fifth district, who is under instruc
tions to vote for Davis, said yesterday: "All
parties here in the Fifth district are really
In favor of Oilman, if lie would consent to
be a candidate; but, as he nor any one else
knows how Buckman, Lee, Lum andFljnii
stand, the probabilities are that Oilman will
continue to bank saw logs and not enter the
fight for United States senator. There is
some doubt of any one from the northern
part of the state getting any help from
Buckman, as it is said he aspires to succeed
Knute Nelson, and thereby shelve Kindred."
Senatorial scrap-*. "'.- .
A Fergus Falls transient, who is one of the
best posted men in the Fifth distrlct,says:"ln
our senatorial district the Republicans are so
nnitodiy in favor of Davis for senator that it
is not thought the legislative delegation—Sen
utor Compton and Representatives Plowman
and Bjorgo — will dare to support anybody
else, whatever their individual preferences
may be. ■. Senator Compton is said to have a
great regard for H. to. Langdon. Since their
election Plowman and Blorge have stayed at
their farm houses so persistently and taken
so little part In political discussion that no
body knows whom they favor.
Senator Nachbar and Representative Far
icy, of Scott county, are both practical farm
ers. They were elected upon a straight Dem
ocratic ticket and platform, and pledged
themselves to advance the farmers' interests.
They are both low license men. and are solidly
opposed to any sumptuary or monopolistic
legislation. For senator they will undoubt
edly support the nominee of- the Democratic
caucus, nnd, in all events, their votes will not
be cast for any candidate having protective
A Goodhue county politician talks thusly in
regard to the standing of the legislative dele
gation from that county on the senatorial
question:":: G. A. Anderson, of Vasa, is in
structed for Davis, and O. 0. Nordvold ex
presses a preference for the same gentleman.
Senator Peter Nelson (Democrat) was elected
with the understanding that he would vote
for Davis, and O. K. Naesetb (representative)
is also said to be for Davis. Senator A. K.
Finseth is probably for McMillan.
A Croouston politician in the lobby of the
Merchants, yesterday, said: "Hon. H. Samp
son, the senator-elect for the Forty-fifth sena
torial district, is now very ill at his home in
Crookston. So many of the great men of our
nation have died lately that he don't teel very
well himself. I think Mr. Sampson favors
Windom or Langdon. possibly McMillan. Ido
not think Sampson has any use for Davis. I
am of the opinion that Loren Fletcher will
have something to say for our representa
tive during the session."
It is generally believed that Gov. Davis
cannot depend on more than one of the three
Republican members e.ect from Blue Earth
county, although the county convention in
dorsed Davis. The Mankato Register is op
posing. Gov. Davis vigorously on account of
his views on the tariff, while the Free Press is
giving him a lukewarm support. The Regis
ter rather favors McMillan
Senator : McMillan's friends claim that, as
chairman of the commerce committee, he has
been one of the most active and useful mem
bers or congress. (If 183 bills passed during
the last session fifty came from the commerce
committee. Of these ten were of interest to
Minnesota directly, and Minnesota . had as
much interest in seven more of them as any
state in the Union.
Frank S. Randan, of Winona, who is secre
tary of tbe First district Democratic congres
sional committee, says Judge Wilson will not

Senator Hixon and Representative Costello
are compelled to do a pretty straddling act.
They are instructed to vote for Davis, though
the convention that nominated them declared
for a revision of the tariff. In view of Mr.
Davis' recent tariff utterances it [would seem
to render him an undesirable candidate for
these gentlemen to support. j
Quoth a Breckenridgo man: "It is safe to
say that a majority of the Republicans favor
C. K. Davis. Senator Comstock is a strong
supporter of Davis, and Representative Matt
son ought to be if he obeys the wishes of his
constituents. For second choice Knute Nel
son would be unanimously favored."
Senator Child says, being a Democrat, it is
futile to express a choice, but he would like
to see the Democrats hang together on the
senatorial question, and perhaps they might
make what little strength they! have count
Representative Wilson, of Douglas, is solid
for Davis. There can be no mistake about it.
He says: "I am for C. K. Davis, notwith
standing Knute Nelson to the contrary. "
"It is not likely, says a Winona Democrat,
that the senator and five representatives
from our county will vote for i Republican
for United States senator. Two of the repre
sentatives may vote for high license.

masses of Republicans up that way favor
Senator Dodge is a defection from the Davis
ranks. Dodge county instructed for Davis,

A SURI'RISE PARTY.
Some Political Schemes and History
Which Have Just Developed.
A bit of history connected with the last
campaign in Minnesota has just been de
veloped, which certainly shows Congress
man Lind up in a most contemptible light,
llow it was kept quiet all this while can
only be explained by the fact that no atten
tion was paid to the Second district canvass
and no reports of the speeches were printed
in the newspapers. People who read this
account of it will draw comparisons in their
own minds between the pigmy Lind and
the giant Wilson. A Second district man
said yesterday to a Globe reporter:
Friends of Judge Wilson severely criticize
the attitude of Congressman-elect Lind
toward the judge during the campaign. Liud
said, in one of his speeches, that Judge Wil
son was a pettifogger in court and he was
trying to pettifog hi* way into congress.
Pretty good assurance for a mere boy toward
a man of Judge Wilson's legal reputation — a
man who had graced the supremo bench
of the state! Lind also charged Judge
Wilson with being /a party to the or
ganization of the Irnnc'j road from Slaepy
Eye to Redwood Full;, and >i<at the stock was
watered to defraud stockholders and the pa
trons of the road. The friends of Judge Wil
son say that when Liud gets to congress he
may have occasion to regret his uncalled-for
attack. Congress is Democratic; the major
ity of Lind's colleagues are Democratic; the
speaker will be a Democrat,' and possibly
Lind will find it very unpleasant, not only in
a general way but in respect to appointment
on committees, etc.
Stordock for Warden.
The report that lion. H. G. Stordock, of
Wilkin county, has retired from the race
for railroad commissioner may have some
foundation. He, has been sick for some
time at his home in Rothsay, but a petition
was put in circulation in Fergus Falls the
first of the week urging Gov. McGill to ap
point him as one of the members of the
board. It has received many signatures,
for he has many friends there. It is ru
mored, however, that the appointment as
warden of the state prison would be a more
agreeable one to Mr. Stordock than the
other, and that he is likely to be invited to
step into Warden Heed's shoes.
A Pointer Cor .tlcrrlain.
This was told a Globe reporter yester
day by a politician who vouches for Its re
liability: "There are many in the Fifth
district who do not favor William E. Lee
for speaker of the house, and particularly
on the Republican side. It is well known
that he has a warm spot in his heart for
Democracy, and it is hard for old line
Democrats to become solid, whole-souled
Republicans. Lee was a ' Democrat when
he was first elected to the house. His rec
ord should be looked into." •• J'i
The Feeling- at Stillwater.
This from a Stillwater man, who is one
of its best known citizens: ! -y
"Washington county is a unit, regardless
of politics, for Warden Reed, simply and
solely because his undoubted fitness for the
position and years of successful conduct of
the penitentiary has placed this institution
among the best managed prisons of the coun
try. The reopening of the surveyor general
ship war, which raged so fiercely not many
months ago, will be anticipated with inter
est, both by the lumbermen, who have per
haps the most vital interest in the matter,
and by the average citizen, who delights in
askrimmage of any kind. <. It would be in
teresting to, see whether the same potent
influences which were invoked to act upon
Gov. Hubbard can be brought to bear upon
the governor-elect should the majority of
the lumbermen decide in favor of McKusick.
Mr. Hospes has - made a very creditable'
officer, however, so far as known, and, but
for the little rivalry, no particular interest
would be taken in the matter."
John Frank liedi virus.
It has developed that Hon. John Frank,
of Mower county, is being secretly and
shrewdly groomed for one of the railroad
commissioners. The Knights of Labor and

GAZING ON THE DEAD.
The Eemains of Gen. Logan Transferred
Prom His Late Home to the
Thousands of People Embrace the Oppor
tunity to Look Their Last on -
At a Late Hour the Throng "Was
Still Slowly Passing by the
Military and Civic Arrangements for
To-Day's Funeral Ceremo
Washington, Dec. 30.— A sheet of
fresh fallen ; snow covered the ground this
morning, and the skies were overcast and
somber. At the Logan mansion all prep
arations for the removal of the dead states
man had . been perfected during the night
The remains still lay in the chamber where
the general died, but had been placed in the
casket, an elaborate receptacle, whose her
metic inner casing of copper was concealed
by its quilted lining of creamy satin and
whose plate glass top, not yet in position,
was designed to reveal the entire length of
the form within. A square plate of silver
in the middle of the cover bears the inscrip
: john A. LOG N. :
: United States Senator. :
; Born Februurv .8, IS2G; died December:
: " 2t>, 1886. :
*...- • *
Floral pillows, with funeral legends,
crosses and anchors and other appropriate
emblems were placed near the casket and
about the room. . At 11 o'clock the under
taker and his assistants withdrew, when
the immediate family were summoned, and
for a brief time were
left ALONE with TnE DEAD.
When the lids were fastened in their
place, the ample folds of a garrison flag
were arranged about the casket and tied in
place with ribbons of white flowers and
palm branches were placed upon its top.
The last offices of love and respect were
performed by the loving hands of the only
son. All being in readiness for the most
formal, but still private leave taking, the
doors were opened and the widow, sup
ported by her sou, and followed by the
daughter and her husband, the grandson
and other relatives and near friends of the
deceased, to the number of 15 or 20. en
tered. Mrs. Logan knelt sobbing at the
head of the casket, and when the others
had entered and the door had been closed,
the voice of the pastor was
RAISED IN PRAYER:
Our father, we gather here. to take the last
farewell of the form we love and ere that form
is borne hence from the home he loved: wo
desire to praise Thee for the purity, for the
joy, for the peace of this once happy home.
We praise Thee for his undivided and constant
love to this precious woman, the joy of his
youth and the pride of his manhood; and we
praise Thee for that tender and constant
fatherly love for this son in whom he took
such pride, and for this daughter whom he so
fondly cherished. We bless Thee.therefore.for
this sweet home, which is more to these dear
ones than all public applause, than all the
eclat of the outside world. And now we have
no where else to go but unto Thee in this day
of trouble. Thou art Sovereign over all.
Thou gayest and Thou has taken away,
and blessed be Thy holy name. . We are as
sured that Thou hast taken him to Thyself,
and that when the years shall have passed by
there shall be a reunion round the
throne in heaven. We thank Thee
for this glorious hope of immor
tality. We thank Thee that he received
the "sacraments of death and the resurrec
tion of Jesus, in whom he trusted, and we
praise Thee that his last end was peaceful.
And now, while we bless Theo for all his vir
tues and all his public and heroic deer" 3, yet
we pray Thee, as we gather in this sorrowful
domestic circle, to pour the infinite consola
tions of Thy grace upon these precious ones;
and grant that from out of this dark cloud
they may yet see tho Father's smiling face,
and may yet realize that these sorrows are,
after all, designed for the unfolding of a
higher form of character and for the devel
opment of greater virtues. Now we ask Thy
blessing again upon these precious ones, that
their future may be in Thy precious care;
that all their unfolding years may be ordered
by Thee: that when this brief life is done it
may be well done, ani that at last they may
gather, on the banks of the shining river,
where sorrow shall be no more and where joy
shall be eternal. Answer us, we beseech
Thee, and Thy name shall have the praise,
world without end. Amen.
A MOMENT OF SILENCE
followed, broken only by the sobs of the
stricken ones, and then the son tenderly
raised the almost fainting form of the
widow and led her away. The remaining
friends paused for a last sight of the be
loved features, and with their departure
ended the family custody of the statesman's
remains. The congressional committee
now took formal charge of the remains.
The sergeant-at-arms superintended the
closing of the casket and its slow and or
derly removal from the chamber of death
down the broad stairway, between the lines
of the uncovered escort, and its placing in
the hearse. Fifes and muffled drums
sounded a salute which merged itself into
the air of "Nearer My God to Thee," and
at the word "Forward," the hearse, pre
ceded by the pastor's carriage alone, sur
rounded by platoons of Grand Army men
in uniform, and followed by a long proces
sion of carriages, moved slowly down the
hill to the capitol. As early as 10 o'clock
500 persons had assembled in the rotunda
of the capitol, although it was not expected
that the remains of Senator Logan would
be laid in state until 12:30 p. m. At noon
had swelled to 1,000, and patiently awaited
the arrival of the funeral cortege, which
did not reach the capitol until after half
past 1. The interior of the vast dome was
tastefully draped, and upon the spot where
many who have made their mark in Ameri
can history have lain in state, rested the
bier prepared to receive the casket contain
ing the remains of the dead senator. The
bier is that upon which lay the remains of
Presidents Lincoln and Garfield, Chief Jus
tice Chase and Representative Thad
Stevens. The heavy black cloth with
which it is covered was last used on the oc
casion of President Lincoln's funeral. Deep
black fringe falls from the edge of the bier,
whose sombreness i:; only relieved by the
narrow bands of white which encircle it.
Round about were grouped
MASSES OF FLORAL TRIBUTES
which filled the place with their perfumes.
As the funeral procession approached the
east front of the capitol the doors of the
rotunda were opened and the assemblage |
uncovered and stood in respectful distance.
The committees and the honorary pall
bearers filed in, forming, as they halted,
a double line, between which the casket
was borne to its place of state. Then the
pall bearers retired and the spectators were
requested to withdraw. When, at 2 o'clock,
the doors were again opened, the lid of the
casket had been removed, military guards
of honor, fully uniformed and accoutred,
stood at rest at the bead and foot, and on
either side of the casket lines of Grand
Army men were drawn tip. between which
the people passed to view the remains. The
president has directed that while the re
mains of the late Senator Logan are lying
in state at the capitol. the flags on all the
public buildings will be displayed at half
mast, and that they so remain until • after
the ceremony. . An order was issued at the
interior department to-day . allowing all
members of the Grand Army employed in
the department, who wish to attend the
funeral ot Gen. Lo 3 an. to be : absent to
It is impossible to even roughly estimate
the number of persons who have passed
through the rotunda of the capitol to-day to
pay the last mark of respect to the remains
of Gen. Logan. Those who have been in
attendance since the body was placed on
the bier say: "We can't tell how many
have passed. yXy/.ycS^i'.'yS- ■■ .
THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS
have been here; no one can estimate them."
When the lid was lifted from the casket
shortly before 3 o'clock this afternoon, about
eight * thousand people were outside the
doors of the capitol steps and across the
carriage-way to the statue of Washington,
at the opposite end of the paved space sep
arating the capitol building from the green
parking on the east. These 8,000 people
had only time for a btief glance at the face
of the dead senator, as they passed at the
rate of about seventy per minute. . The
first to look at the body were Senator and
Mrs. Piatt. As it grew dark the crowd
thinned out perceptibly, and more time
could be allowed each of its component
members. A large number of ladies passed
through the rotunda also, as did many
colored people. The men, as a rule, gave
a short . look and passed on, while the
women seemed inclined to linger. Many
of them were mere curiosity seekers, but
every little while some one passed who had
evidently more than a curious interest in
the dead man. Among the latter was a
gentleman apparently 45 years of age,
whose thin form was enveloped in an im
mense fur coat of western pattern. He
gazed tenderly at the face of the dead, and
slowly passed on, while the
TEAKS HOLLED DOWN HT3 CHEEKS.
To an inquirer he said his name was Dun
can, and he had been a surgeon on Gen. Lo
gan's staff when he commanded the army
of the Tennessee. "We could better have
spared any man than Logan." said the vet
eran, "and I thought he would be. with us
for a long time to come. At Dallas we
thought he had an amulet which protected
him from harm. During the tight at that
place Gen. Logan mounted his horse and
rode down through a perfect shower of bul
lets on a Confederate battery. It seemed
certain death. As he waved his sword in
the air, his ragged shirt showed the red
one underneath. The men saw it. and all
along the line the words rang, "Black Jack
is wounded.' The thought gave us strength,
and with a cheer we charged, captured the
battery and turned certain defeat
into victory. He always had. that
sort of influence over his men."
At a late hour this evening a stream of
people is slowly and steadily passing the
coffin, and the monotonous movement is
broken only by the periodic relief of the
guard. At the head and foot of the bier
are stationed an artilleryman and a marine
who stand passive and motionless as if un
conscious of everything going on around
them. On the other side of the bier stand
THE GUARD OF HONOR,
detailed by the different organizations of
which the general was a member. These
organizations are the Grand Army of the
Republic, the Union Veteran Corps, the
Loyal Legion and the Columbia Command

Hannibal Hamlin's Tribute.
Bangor, Me., Dec. 30.— At a meeting
of the B. A. Beal Post G. A. R. to-night
the venerable Vice President Hannibal
Hamlin delivered an eloquent eulogy on the
death of Senator Logan, dwelling princi
pally on Logan's military career, his loyalty
to his country and his devotion to his com
rades. The speaker had known Logan in
timately for thirty years. The latter, he
said, possessed the great qualities that
make both soldier and statesman in a higher
degree than any other American living.
Nevertheless he was underestimated. High,
as lie ranked in the field and in the nation's
councils, he should have stood higher. He
was a man of courage as well as conviction,
and never was there a more honest man.
The heroic deeds of Gen. Logan would live
when monuments were crumbled. Appro
priate resolutions were adopted.
The Mrs. Logan Fund.
Washington, Dec. 30. — subscrip
tions to the Logan fund received to-day aro
as follows: Morton. Bliss & Co., 81,000;
Henry C. Bowen, $500; John R. McLean,
Cincinnati. S500: Edwin L. Stewart, Phila
delphia, S100; Edwin N. Benson, Philadel
phia, 8200; R. W.Clark & Co., Philadelphia.
3100; Charles Smyth. Philadelphia, S100;
Sidney L. Wilson, Washington. 525; total,
$-2,5:20. The following telegram was re
ceived from Boston:
George E. Lemon, Washington: At the
suggestion of- Mr. Lodge, we have opened a
popular subscription to the Logan fund, the
receipts from which will be duly forwarded to
you. Boston Evening Record.
Senator Manderson received a telegram
to-night from Senator A. S. Paddock, of
Lincoln, Neb., asking that his name be
added to the list of contributors to the
Logan fund, with a subscription of $500.
Chioago, Dec. 30. Ex-Congressman
Charles B. Farwell, who interested himself
in an attempt to raise $30,000 to enable
Mrs. Logan to pay off the debts left by her
husband, devoted some time to the matter
to-day with most encouraging success. So
far as could be learned the subscriptions
obtained are: C. B. Farwell, $3,000; H.
H. Higgenbotham, $2,000; Matthew Lap
lin, $1,000: N. K. Fairbank. $1,000; two
other gentlemen, $1,000. Beside Mr. Far
well one or two others have undertaken to
procure subscriptions for the same purpose,
and it is probable that more money than
above reported has already been subscribed.
This movement is entirely distinct from the
one started several days ago in different
parts of the country to raise a fund of
$100,000 for Mrs. Logan, the main object
of which is to place her in comfortable
financial circumstances in her Washington
home. The effort to raise $30,000 will be
made only among the business men of this
William Perm Nixon, treasurer of the
Logan fund, sent to Mrs. Logau to-night
$6,500 as the result of the first collection
in this city for the 8100.000 tribute. A
number of other subscriptions are promised.
The Chicago subscribers prefer to make
their remittances direct to Mrs. Logan.
Their names have not been made public.
Ottawa, Out., Dec. 30. The greatest ex
citement prevailed here all day yesterday
over the result of the elections in the \ prov
ince of Ontario. On this contest depended
the fate of Sir John Macdonnld's administra
tion at the approaching federal election, and
he, with four members of his cabinet, threw
his whole strength into the fight, stumping
the province for the past two months in the
interest of Meredith, the leader of the oppo
sition, thus identifying federal with provin
cial politics, The result has been that, in
stead of defeating the liberal government of;
Mowat, it has strengthened his majority 58
per cent, according to tho latest returns,
which give Mowat 60 and Meredith 30.
This means defeat for Sir John. The pros
pect now is that the dominion elections will
be put off to the very latest momentproba
bly to next September.
The Sandwich Islands.
San Francisco, Dec. —Hon. W. M. Gib-,
son, prime minister and minister of foreign
affairs for the Hawaian government, being
asked by the Associated Press about the
present financial condition of tho kingdom,
has sent from Honolulu the following state
ment: The annual revenue, which will ho
about $1,500,000 this year, will, owing, to the
amendment of tax aud custom laws and im
proved methods of assessment, be raised
next year to over $2,000,000. The present
bonded indebtedness of the kingdom is $1,
--070.000: that will be increased $930,000,
making in all $2,000,000. Under the loan just
made, the obligations of the Hawaian gov
ernment to Claus Spreckles on account of ■ a
special loan, also his private loan to the king,
have been paid off. The sugar crop of the
island for the present year is estimated at
over 100,000 tons.
Wilkesbarke, Pa., Dec. 30.— At the
Newberry building at Nanticoke to-day a
scaffold upon which five men were at work
