Ckeyknxk. Wy. T., March 5. A pern
liar legislative job has come to light two
months after the adjournment of the as
sembly. An event of the session was the
fixing on a design for the great se l of the
state and an elaborate and very har d
some sketch submitted by II. E Buech
m r, a member of the bouse from this coun
ty, was adopted. Yesterday Buech ner and
others discovered that the patten for an
impress upon the bill signed by the gov
ernor differed materially from his design.
Instead of a goddess of liberty, with one
band resting on a shield and the up
lifted arm, the figure is that of a female
with accentuated nudeness. Buechner,
who is well-nigh distracted, blames the
chairman of the committee. An investi
gation has been ordered.

interview yesterday settles the much dis
puted question of the baptism of Gen.
Sherman in the Roman Catholic church!
She said: "The colonel, for Gin. Sherman
was only a colonel then, was baptized in
this city just before he started out in one
of his Virginia campaigns. I was an in
timate friend of Mrs. Sherman. At that
time I was stationed at St. John's hos

asked that 1 take care of the children one
Has No Doubt of the Fact.
"She stated that the colonel was about
to be baptized by Archbishop Purcell and
that she wanted to devote the whole day
to him. Whether that ceremony
took placa at the archiepiscopul
residence, near the cathedral, or at the
Burnet house, I m unable to say, but
that he was baptized into the Catholic
church that day there can be no doubt. I
wish now that I had remembered the par
ticulars more fully. It was a time when
a man's he.ut was sorely tried, and be had
to face death constantly. Personally I
was not acquainted with Gen. Sher
