THE HOOK -IBISiLHP AKGFUB, FJ1IDAY MAY 31, IB39. -
THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Fbi oat. Mat 31, 1889.
Senator Cxjllom has about reached
the conclasion that it is better to be a
humble, unknown, fameless, plodding
citizen than to fill an exalted place and
be the slave of the spoils hunters. "I
have never been so pressed and harrassed
in my life," he says, "as I have been
since March 4. If I had to go through all
this again, I almost think that the re
wards of political life would saroely be
adequate 'compensation. You can have
no idea of the persistence of these office
seekers, or of the embarrassing compli
cation connected with the quest of one's
constituents for place. The mere matter
of letters is enough to stagger one. Why,
they come by hundreds and one is con
stantly occupied in keeping up with the
correspondence. Each letter involves
two or three more, each requires an an
swer, and an answer generally calls for a
visit to the white house oi to the depart
ments, and so the time goes.'
In admitting Montana as a state the
republicans appear to have repeated the
mistake that the democrats made in 1876
in the admission of Colorado. It will be
remembered that the supposition was that
the new state would be democratic, as it
had chosen a democratic delegate to con
gress several times, but this expectation
was disappointed and the state has been
solidly republican ever since. In fact,
were it not for the vote of Colo
rado, Tilden would have been seated
in spite of the Florida and Louisiana
frauds. When the republicans forced
the admission of Montana last win
ter, they supposed that it was sure
to vote for their ticket with the other
northwestern states; but that it will do
so is now more than doubtful. An
election was held recently to choose a
convention to frame a constitution for
the coming state, with the result that the
democrats were successful and will con-
trol the convention by a majority of
from three to five not a large majority.
it is true, but sufficient to show that the
new commonwealth is more apt to be
governed by democrats than republicans
and that the congressional delegation
and the electoral vote are likely to be
A somewhat lurid scene opens at
Braidwood, 111., where the protection of
American industry and a tax of 75 cents
a ton on soft coal have operated to put
the mines in the possession of 1,000
Italians who cannot speak English, and
yet no less defy the state authorities, re
marks the Chicago Herald. Where the
American industry may be which has
been displaced by these thousand fight
ing foreigners, who now claim they are
starving as they were starving when
they were mere foreign paupers in Italy
that much remains to be explained
(for hire) by Porter, Jarrett, and Hinton,
and by James G. Blaine (for office).
Meantime the clerks and other honest
citizens and infants of the state must
pat down their work and hurry to
Braidwood in regiments of militia
to put down the insurgents. Italians
who learnsd but last year of the
glories of protection will do what they
can to overcome the commonwealth. It
is not difficult to foretell the outcome, for
experience teaches that armed men who
are fed by the state will conquer armed
men from whom the state withholds food.
After the rumpus shall be over the Ital
ians, or some later contingent of foreign
ers, will begin work at still lower wages,
and the coal operators, collecting 75 cents
of tax on each ton of coal, will discourse
eloquently upon the blessings of protect
tion, the dignity of American toil, and
the stanch republicanism of the Italians.
In the end the state will reward its
militia the only Americans who suffered
in the melee by refusing them adequate
support and humiliating them at all
times when there may not be an indubita
ble reign of public disorder.

Chicago, Hay St. If the clerk of the
weather had entered into a contract to pro
vide the moat execrable quality of weather
for Decoration Day in this city he could
hardly have done a better job of the kind
than be did yesterday. The wind was blus
tering and raw, and the rain was wet very
wet; it was ako persistent from about 11
o'clock a. m. But the boya in blue were out
to pay their tributes to their dead comrades,
and bad weather did not alter the pro
gramme. AU of them had seen worse weather
and under more uncomfortable circum
stances. The Haymarlcet Monument.
While so many of the citizens were out at
the cemeteries strewing flowers over the
graves of the soldiers of the war of '61-6.
another large gathering took place on the
Haymarket square, where, on the spot upon
which the deadly bomb fell on the night of
May 4, 18S6, a monument was dedicated to
tlie memory of the policemen who lost their
lives on that memorable occasion. This was
the new feature of the day. But one police
man was killed on the spot Matthias J.
Deagan and seven died of 'their wounds
later. Fifty-nine others were wounded.
The Ceremony of Unveiling.
Upon a platform at the east front of the
monument a group of citizens assembled at
the appointed hour, consisting of Mayor Cre
gier, Mr. F. J. Head (the orator of the occa
sion), and several members of the committee
which had charge of raising funds and pro
curing the monument. Besides these there
was one other, a boy. Master Degan, son of
the polieeman whose life was instantly ended
when the bomb exploded. After the usual
speeches giving and accepting the monument
had been concluded, young Degan pulled the
cord that confined the flag which veiled the
tribute and amid the cheering of a detail of
800 policemen and several thousand citizens
the statue was disclosed. Mr. Head then
addressed the throng with an eloquent
speech dealing with the tragedy the meeting
was held to commemorate and reviewing the
progress of the nation and its present posi
tion among the powers of the world.
Description of the Monument
John J. Oelert was the successful sculptor
who got the prize offered by the citizens for
the best design for the statue, and its cost
was $4,000. The statue was cast at the Amer
ican Bronze foundry at Grand Crossing. The
pedestal was designed by Burnham & Root,
and cost $3,000. This latter is plain and mas
sive. Upon a broad base a solid block of
granite stands, its height being about seven
feet Erect on top of this is the figure of a
policeman in full uniform. Of heroic sice
nine feet high the right hand is raised in
the act of commanding peace, and this idea
is emphasized by ono of the inscriptions on
the pedestal: "In the Name of the People of
Illinois, I command Peace." Other suitable
inscriptions occupy the other faces of the
The Grand Army Men.
The day was very generally kept as a holi
day, and from an early hour in the morn
ing the Grand Army posts were assembling,
and before noon they, with thousands of peo
ple of both sexes, were on their way by
trams or otherwise to the different ceme
teries. Details of G. A. R. were sent to each
city of the dead, and the usual beautiful cere
mony of decorating the graves and the ritual
of the order were gone through with, while
at each place an oration was delivered in
eulogy of those who died that their
country might live. At Calvary the princi
pal featare was the service over the grave of
CoL J. A. Mulligan, and here there were a
number of organizations connected with the
Roman Catholic church, including the Holy
Name cadets, young boys in bright souave
uniform, whose duty was the strewing of
flowers. Services were held at Rosehiil,
Graceland and Oak woods, and the indiffer
ence with which the crowds stood the dis
comfort of the persistently falling rain told
the deep interest taken in the services.
Procession In the Afternoon.
Later in the afternoon the National Guard
and other military bodies, the Grand Army
and Veteran associations, the Sons of Veter
ans and the Are department formed on Mich
igan avenue and to the music of a number of
bands and drum corps paraded through the
principal streets of the business portion of
the city. The column, which numbered
6,000 to 8,000, was reviewed by Mayor Cre
gier, members of the city council. Gen.
Crook and staff and others, and shortly after
passing the stand dispersed.
IN MEMORY OF SHERIDAN.
A Monument to Little Phil Unveiled at
Arlington Other Observances.
Washington City, May 81. Decoration
Day was celebrated at the national capital
with the usual visits to the cemeteries, the
silent strewing of heroes' groves with bright
flowers, and with patriotic addresses, and a
general holiday was kept. The whitening
hair and bent forms of the veterans who
marched to the different burial places told
the story of advancing time and inevitable
disappearance of the once stalwart body of
men who can call the dead their comrades.
Special services were held at the monuments
of the leaders in the war, and the names of
Grant, Logan, Garfield, and others were re
membered with patriotic reverence by the
Phil Sheridan's Tomb.
The principal point of interest, however,
was the spot in Arlington cemetery where lie
the remains of the latest victim of death's
remorseless hand Phil Sheridan. The at
tendance here was unusually large. Some
time before 12 o'clock Mrs. Harrison arrived,
accompanied by Mra McKee and Mrs.
Brown, Dr. Scott and Mr. McKee. They
brought with them a large bouquet of flow
ers, which was placed on Gen. Sheridan's
grave. Gen. Schofield and members of his
staff arrived about the same time. Civil
Service Commissioner Lyman and Mrs. Ly
man, Senator Sawyer, Attorney General
Miller, Commissioner Mitchell of the patent
office and Mrs. Mitchell, and persons distin
guished in offloial life were in the throng
that gathered about the old mansion. The
Loyal Legion comma ndery of the Distriet of
Columbia, of whioh Gen, Sheridan was a
member, had charge of the services. The
floral tribute from the commander? places!
on the grave was to the form of Qen. Sheri
dan's battle-flag, of crimson Immortelles and
while carnations with gilt staff, resting on
an easel of smilax and asparagus vines.
Unveiled by an Old Guardsman.
A vast crowd thronged the slope upon
which the grave is situated, and looked with
the deepest interest upon the servioes con
nected with the unveiling of the monument
When the band bad played a dirge Quarter
master Sergeant A. W. Bogia, of the Old
Guard, pulled the rope that detached the
fastenings, and the flags that covered the
monument fell to the ground. Just at that
moment the members of the Woman's Relief
corps threw a -shower of roses upon the
grave. This ended the simple ceremony.
CoL Michael Sheridan and a number of
army officers witnessed the ceremony. Mrs.
Sheridan, who is confined to her room by
sickness, was unable to attend. Later in the
day, however, after the unveiling ceremo
nies, the children of Gea Sheridan visited
the cemetery and added their flowers to the
heap that had been thrown upon the gallant

THE LOST CAUSE NOT RIGHT.
Gen, Bsasey Creates a Sensation by a
Speech at Baltimore.
Balti hors, May 81. Gen. Cyrus Bussey,
first assi itant secretary of the interior de
partment, created a sensation last night by a
refereno to the south in his speech at Ford's
Opera house, where memorial exercises were
held by 'be G. A. R. He said it was proper
for ex-Confederates to honor the memory of
their deed comrades in arms, but when they
boasted of the righteousness of the Lost
Cause it was quite another thing. Their
cause wiis not right; it was a crime, and they
should not teach the coming generation in
the aout i that the Lost Cause was a just
A a Objectionable Inscript ion.
He ob.ected to the inscription on the Con
federate monument unveiled at Alexandria
the other day, which represented that men
slept there who died in the consciousness of
the righteousness and justice of the Confed
erate siile. He asserted that there were
thousands of men who, at heart loyal to the
Union, irere forced into a service with which
they had no sympathy.
The north, he said, reconstructed the south
in a political sense at the close of the war,
and now at the present time the south was
again ur dergoing reconstruction under the
guidanon of northern men this time in its
industriid development. But, he concluded,
the south will only have been thoroughly
reconstriictod when the people of that section
accord t le negro his right of suffrage allow
him to deposit his ballot and have it counted.

Fort Smith, Art, May 81. Congressman
Kelly, of Kansas, spoke here yesterday and
made a reference that has caused much bad

A GREAT MOVE IN PROGRESS
In the Matter of the Cronln Mystery Luke
Chicago, May 31. Chief of Police Hub
bard as much as admitted last night that his
men are on the eve of a great move in the
Cronin mystery. It is said that the man
who drove the doctor away from his home on
the fatal night has been identified, and that
the murdi-r conspiracy has been traced to
Camp 9ft of the Clan-na-Gael, which used to
meet in the North Side Turner halL . It is
said on the best of authority that all the
members of this camp will be brought before
the grand jury, and a strenuous effort made
to compel them to give up the secrets which
they are known to hold.
Luke Dillon Talks Aa-ain.
Luke Dillon, ths Philadelphia delegate, in a
lengthy interview insisted with considerable
show of indignation that the Clan na-Gael,
as a body, had nothing whatever to do with
the assassination. He went on to say that
there was now but little if any doubt that
the crime was committed by members of
the order, and these members of a certain
camp, but contended that ths order as a
body could not be held responsible for the
actions of the conspirators.

London, flay KL The reporters of th
most enterprising London dailies have been
stimulated into quite an American-like activ
ity by the belief, apparently well grounded,
that something is being kept from them by
the police authorities. Mr. Munro, chief of
the metropolitan police, and everybody at
Scotland Yard have been besieged for the
last two days by reporters eager for informa
tion and anxious to gain distinction, and the
persistent manner in which they have been
assured that there is nothing to be divulged
only makes them the more certain that
something is being concealed.
Helping Solve the Cronln Mystery.
There is a theory that Dr. Cronin's mur
derer is somewhere in the United Kingdom,
and that the detectives are within an ace of
securing him. Another theory is that the
two men detailed ever since the last White
chapel murder to discover the perjietrator of
that series of horrors have made some im
portant discoveries. It is certain that every
transatlantic steamer has been watched since
the murder of Cronin, and the police feel a
need of solving tho mystery to do away
with the story, too elaborate to be probable,

SALISBURY ON BI-METALLISM.
International Action Necesnary Before
Anything Can Be Done. ,
London, May SI. Lord Salisbury yester-1
aay gave auuience to a deputation or mer
chants and bankers who came to advocate
the adoption of the bi-metallic standard.
After listening to the reading of a carefully
prepared address in which the necessity was
strongly urged for remonetizing silver on a
fixed ratio of interchange with gold. Lord
Salisbury replied at some length. He said
that in his opinion this was not a question
which could be settled by a parliamentary
decree. Unless the commercial nations of
the world could reach some agreement any
action by parliament must count for little.
The business interests of each nation must
decide whether or not bi-metallisni be desir
able. The Coming Congress May Settle It.
He hoped that the coming congress in Paris,
called to consider the question, would be
really international in its character, with
representation from all the nations interested.
If this proved to be the case, the congress
would demonstrate to what extent it was
possible to secure international co-operation,
and the final decision must depend eutirely
upon such co-operation.

London, May SL The only interesting
