THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
8ATCRDAT, JCJKB 22, 1889.
Phohtbition received a terrible black
eye at the bands of tbe people of Penn
sylvania. The majority against it seems
to be about 200.000.
If cleanliness is next to godliness, baths
should be considered a means of grace.
It must be with pleasure, therefore, that
religious people learn that a bathing de
partment is to be added to the Wiscopsin
It is said the talk that is occasionally
heard at Washington regarding the
speakership generally voices the opinion
that McKinley and Reed are the two
leading candidates. Congressman Wil

only these two men had a fighting

the office being fourtbclass. This re
moval was made the text for a "power
fill" speech delivered by Benjamin Har
rlson, then a senator. Since March 4 ih
last Mrs. De La Hunt has been an appli
cant for appointment to ber old position
and she was somewhat stunned a short
time ago to learn that Assistant-Post
master Clarkson has appointed a rain,
backed by Representative Posey, to the
position. The appointment raised quite
a howl; the newspapers printed Harri
son's speech in 1885, and sneeringly al
luded to his action in 1889. It woke him
up, and he found an excuse by saying
that he thought the office was in tbe
presidential class, and that he had or
dered Mrs. Hunt appointed, but through
some hocus pocus Clarkson appointed
Posey's man. Tbe commission has not
been sent out yet, and tbe widow may
after all get it.

THE PAETI0IPAT0E IN ICS BATTLES,
He Haa at Last Gotten What He Is Entitled
to Points of an Interesting; Case The
Power of Territorial Legislatures as to
Preparations for Statehood According to
Attorney General Miller's Views The
President Takes a Trip to Cape May.
Washington Citt, June 23. Assistant
Secretary Bussey yesterday rendered a de
cision in a remarkable pension case, on an
appeal for re-rating and increase of pension.
It appears from the records that the claim
ant, Richard AVbitiug, of company C,
Thirty-third Missouri infantry, was wounded
at Tupelo, Miss., about July 14, 1864, and.
while lying on tbe field of battle in a help
less condition, received a sunstroke which,
soon after discharge caused chronic nervous
prostration and impairment of mind, result
ing in imbecility and dementia as early as
1S74. Tbe wile and guardian of tbe claimant
filod an application for pension in 18S8, which
was granted, the rate being fixed at $34 per
month, payment to begin from the date of
filing the application.
The I'enaloner's Wife Appeals.
Subsequently, in 1SS5, the pension was in
creased to fo ) a month. The claim came be-
lors Assistant reeretary ifiuney, upon an
appeal taken by the pensioner's wife and
guardian, the ground of contention being
that the insane pensioner had not been ade
quately rated under the statutes applicable
to tbo case, and that, instead of the pension
beginning at tbe date of filing the original
application in ISsS, it should begin at the
data of the pensioner's discharge, inasmuch
as tbe limitation contained in the arrears of
pension act, approved March H, 1879, ex
pressly excepts from the operation of it all
"claims by or in tiehnlf of insane persons and
children under 10 years of age." Assistant
Secretary Riuewy holds that this exceptional
provision la applicable to the t luting claim.
and hence allows him arrears from the date
Gets a Re-Ratlnc.
In addition to this feature of the claim the
fact appears that since about 1873 the pen
sioner nns Deen in a condition that has re
quired "the personal aid and attendance of
another person, he having, soon after 1S74,
become helpless from mental imbecility, and
from partial paralysis of one side, due to
sunstroke and gunshot wound incurred in
tbe service; and tbe assistant secretary has
decided that claimant's disabilities entitle
bim not only to arrears but to a re-ruting
and increase ot pension under the acts of
1K72, and 1874 and 1SS0; tbe final rating be
ing $72 per month from June lfl, 1880. The
case is one of singular interest in its
historical features, one fact being that in
18S5, upon slanderous and false information,
the claimant's pension was reduced to the
meagre rate of f S per month.
A Veteran of 105 Fights.
The decision of Assistant Secretary Bussey
applies the law thereto by a careful con
struction of its terms, and evidently rights a
flagrant injustice to a veteran who served in
105 battles and skirmishes during tbe war.
VALID, BUT VOIDABLE.
A Decision by the Attorney General as to
Washington City, June Zi. Attorney
General Miller, at the request of the gov
ernor of Arizona, has 'considered at great
length the question whether, in the absence
of an enabling act, an act passed by tbe Ari
zona legislature and approved by the gov
ernor, "to provide for the holding of a con
vention for the purpose of framing a state
constitution to be submitted to the people for
their approval or rejection," is valid.
Conarem Has the Last Word.
He decides that it is, and cites numerous
precedents, where states were admitted into
tbe Union without enabling acta, to sustain
his position. The power to accept, modify
or reject the constitution adopted by a terri
tory when it seeks admission as a state, he
holds, is vestod in congress. "Congress," he
continues, quoting from the supreme court
case ol a isationai bank against Yankton,
"may not only abrogate laws of the terri
torial legislature, but it may legislate
directly for the local government It may
make a void act of a territorial legislature
valid, and a valid act void."

to recover damages from Augustus Thomp

The British-American Circular ITrglng
the Recall or Our Minister to Chill
Rather Riles the Governor, Who Lets
Blmseir loose Very Vigorously A Side
Wipe at Chicago In the Interest or Alex
Lincoln, Neb., June 22. The British
American association of Boston sent a circu
lar to Governor Thayer a few days ago, pro
testing against the appointment of Patrick
Egan as minister to Chili, and asking for
assistance in securing his recall. Yesterday
the governor made public bis reply. It is a
vigorous defense of the minister and full of
denunciation of the cause of the association.
The following are extracts:
"Who constituted you and your associates
judges of the motives and actions of men?
By what authority do you arraign the presi
dent and senate of the United States for the
appointment and confirmation of Patrick
Egan as minister to Chili? Thank
God they are not responsible
to such intolerably insolent bigots as you and
your associates have proven yourselves to be
by the language used in this circular. I have
known Patrick Egan ever since be located in
the city of Lincoln, years ago. He has al
ways proven himself to be an upright and
honorable man; a good citizen in every re
spect You can no more tarnish his reputa
tion with your vile slanders than the foul
bird of night can assail the eagle. To
vent your rage and venom at Mr.
Egan's appointment, you have seized
the weapons of a defeated yea of a vile
London fish-wife deipised, and unprincipled
slanderer, and you call him by opprobrious
names, which fact always furnishes evidence
that the party using them is completely
worsted in supiiort of a bad cause. You say
Mr. Eian is a political Arab. I say he is an
honorable and honored Americau citizen,
and I take pleasure in reminding you that
he is au envoy extraordinary and minister
plenipotentiary of the great republic of the
United States to the foremost republic of
Doesn't Agree with Them.
"You say he is a fugitive from the power
of British justice. Oh, you mistake; you
should have said 'British injustice.' You
say the conduct of Patrick Egan is now un
der investigation by a special commission of
British judges, as to participation in what
every civilized state brands as a crime
against life and property. Have
you so soon forgotten how completely
and how overwhelmingly I 'a trick Egan
shattered one of the most dastardly and
damning conspiracies to blacken bis own
and the good name of Parrel 1 that villainy
ever concocted, which exposure sent ene of
tbe conspirators to death and left the others
to the condemnation of tbe civilized world?
You designate yourselves as mem
bers of the British-American association.
We are all American people here. We are
no 'alf-and-'alf people. We respect Britons
when they respect themselves, and observe
the very homely adage of 'minding one's
A Whack at Chicago.
"Please bear in mind that you are living in
the nineteenth century, uudei the influence
of enlightened American civilization, in a
country where freedom has been proclaimed
throughout the land and to all the inhabi
tants thereof ; where the en joyment, without
dictation from any source, of political and
religious freedom is guaranteed to all;
where a man is believed to be innocent
till be is proven guilty; where
justice can lie relied upon, generally,
to be impartial, although Chicago's coroner
and a coroner's jury spent weeks in trying
to fasten the murder of Dr. Cronin upon Al
exander Sullivan rather than in trying to as
certain who is guilty of the awful crime of
bis taking off; where a man is not hounded
and persecuted lecause he seeks to obtain
free speech and home rule for his native
land. I respectfully advise you to find some
other calling tlian the circulation of the pro
test to which 1 have adverted."
Tbe circular at which Governor Thayer
takes such vigorous umbrage closes as fol
lows: "This appointment is insulting to the
national dignity and ability of the 60,000,000
people comprising thus great republic, for it
virtually proclaims to the world that of all
its sons to the manner born, and otherwise,
there was not to be found oue among them
all so well qualified to represent this greatest
American nation in tbe progressive state of
Chili as this fugitive from the power of
