DEL T. SUTTON, PUBLiSHxa. BROCKWAY CENTER. MICH GENERAL NOTES. The daily departure of superfluous colored servants from Saratoga hotels as the season gradually draws to a close affords an agreeable diversion to the remaining guests. They are usually dispatched in squads of from twenty five to seventy-five, and are always ao companied to the station by a crowd of fellow-servants whose turn has not yet come. For half an hour before the train starts there is a hubbub of fare wells, and as the cars move off the air is thick with waving of hats and liandkerchiefs and black hands throw ing kisses in every direction. The richest negro in Georgia is Hen ry Todd, who lives at Darien. When he was a boy he was made free by his owner's will as a reward for faithful service during his last sickness.

Since the war he had been engaged both in farming and in the lumber business, and is now supposed to be worth $100,000.

Par sons, Coleman, Carpenter, Harmon, Fettle and lleilly. Mr. Parsons took the chair, and a resolution was adopted that members of the society present be invited to take part in the proceedings.

Since the Ford brothers put the fata bullet into the body of Jessie James at St Jo seph, Mo., hopes have been sanguine that Qov. Crittenden would create some devise for the extermination or arrest of Frank, his brother. Whether the Governor is entitled to any credit or not the fact is true that Frank James is at last in the hand of the law, having surrender ed at Jefferson City. He was at ence taken to Kansas City, and will doubtless be dealt with as his case merits. It Is said that no overtures had been made to Frank, and that he surren dered because he was discouraged at the poor prospect of longer living in successful outlaw ry. Whatever his motive for surrendering, it is a gratifying knowledge that this most dreaded villain is no longer loose to injure and kill for the gratification of his criminal dispo sition.

MXW IORX POLITICS. Judge Folger has accepted the repub lican nomination for governor of New York. Mr. A. 0. Hepburn, nominated for congress man at large by the same convention that chose Mr. Folger has declined to accept owing to Irregularities in the choicest delegates. Mr. Folger's letter of acceptance is quite lengthy. He denounces the Irregularities, but argues tbey were not sanctioned by the convention as a wboie. THl AUTH08 DISCOVERED, Detective John L Davenport is said to have discovered the author of the notorious Morey letter. His name is H. SL Hadley, a renegade republican. HEPBURN DECLINES. Mr. A. P. Hepburn, nominated at Saratoga for congressman at large, declined the nomination, owing to lrregnlaritles In the selection of delegates. Among other things In his letter of declination, he says: "Nothing should be left undone to secure unity and har mocy of the party, and I don't think it right to enter upon canvass without an earnest effort in thi.t direction. It seems to me that for the pur. pose of attaining such a result all questions should be submitted anew to representatives of the party assembled for such purpose." CURTIS OM rOLOKa'B ACCEPTANCE. Geo. William Curtis, in a letter to the secretary of the New York civil service aseocla. tlon, says: Judge Folgsrs ability and character are not in question, but his nomination Is. That nomlnatlonwaa procured by the combined power of fraud and patronage, and to support it at the polls would be to airquUsce in fraud and patronage as legitimate forces in a nom inating convention. Every good citizen is bound to resist to the utmost such wrong to free Institutions, and the only effectual way In which voters can emancipate themselves from the corrupt and debasing rule of the machine is to defeat Its candidates. This I believe will be done decisively by the Bepubllcan voters of New York and Pennsylvania at the election this autumn. They will see their party defeated rather than fraud and eor uptlon of patronage triumph. Events in both states show that no graver political peril now confronts the coun try than the complete subjugation of the party by unscrupulous cabals, which bribe with public employment and pay their way by filch ing from the public treasury. This is an evil which will end in violence unless it laconclu sively rebuked by the people at the polls. DEMOCRATIC NOMINATIONS. Connecticut Democrats tnet in con vention at Hartford and nominated the follow, ing state ticke overnor, Thomas M. Waller; lieutenant governor, George G. Summer; secretary of state, 8.

THE TARIFF OM BOOKS. Before the Tariff Commission inNew York City the most interesting witness was Harvey A. Crane, who desired t9 speak In re gard to the tariff on books. He was not di rectly Interested in the subject, but be thought there was no country which, like ours, impos ed an embargo on learning. The duty was twenty-five per cent. It was impossible to procure the new works of Italy and almost even Germany. From France the lighter literature flooded our country. He did sot think Bnssia would impose such a tax. He imported his own books through the post and be went to the postoffloe authorities to see about paying the duty. They told him they would not collect on small quantities. In fact, the government was ashamed to collect the tariff when a book comes through the mail. THl COAL PRODUCT.

THE KINO CHIMIN AL. His Trip to Independence From Jefferson City Why Frank J ames Surrendered. FRANK JAMES IN CUSTODY. Kansas Crrr, Mo., October 6. In accordance with a dispatch received from Gov. Crittenden last night, a party including Frosecuting Attorney Wallace, Man hall Murphy, who carried the warrant, Sheriff Timberlake of Clay county and Police Commissioner Craig left early this morning to meet the governor's secretary with Frank James in charge, at Independence, the county seat of. this county. From Independ ence a number of reporters, including a representative of the western asso ciated press, went down the road and met the incoming train. On the train were Mr. Farr, Gov. Crittenden's sec retary, and Frank James, accompanied by Maj. John Edwards of Sedalia. At the station was AN ANXIOUS CROWD at the car windows and filling the aisle inside eager for a glimpse of the man who for 20 years has deued the law. Once here and several times along the route, James was recognized by old confederates, men who had known him in the old days. Evidently he had changed much in appearance, as none of them knew him until he had been pointed out. James is 5 feet 9 inches in height, of square but sinewy build, with rather thin face and prominent cheek bones, light blue eyes, a small blonde moustache and hair somewhat dark. His complexion is that of a man who has been for some time con fined; weight 125 pounds. Because of his spare form he appears taller than he really is. His manner is quiet, language that of a man in ordinary life. His dress is ALTOGETHER UNOBTRUSIVE, the only Jewelry being a watch and chain. In an interview he stated to &u associated press reporter that although receiving no promise of clemency from Gov. Crittendon, he at last nerved him self to an act which he had long con templated and surrendered himself. He is confident that if he be tried on any single charge he will not be convicted, and although having received no prom ises, he seems to hope that in case of conviction clemency will be shown be cause of his voluntary action. He says his wish is to lead henceforth a quiet life with his family, and instead of a criminal life, to aid in the protection ot the state against criminals. He declares that from April, 77, until April, 81, he lived quietly with his wife upon a rented farm in Tennessee, near Nash ville. This he says he can prove by business men of Nashville. Regarding his whereabouts since April, 1881, he is silent. He says, however, that he read the news of the shooting of Jesse in the New York Herald the morning of its publication, indicating that he was in that vicinity and admits having been EAST OF THE ALLEGHENIES and in Kentucky during the past year, Regarding the various crimes charged against him he declines to speak, thinks this not the proper time, but says that he has been much maligned; that he has never written a letter which ap peared in print, and NEVER THREATENED VENGEANCE for his brother's death. As the train passed through a timbered country James spent most of the time in look ing out of the windows, pointed to the wooded hills and thickets, green pas tures, etc He remarked: "That's a mighty good bushwhacking country. I know every loot of that ground. Many a time I have watched from those hills and seen the soldiers pass up and down." At stations all the way from Jefferson City Mr. Farr stated the same strained interest was manifested and the depot platforms were crowded with people, men, women and children. Speaking of the scene at Jefferson City yesterday Mr. Farr said it was one of a strange history connected therewith long to be remembered. The voluntary prisoner was THE COOLEST HAN LW THE HALL, where the governor, surrounded by a number of officials, received him, as a man who has lived for years moving about through the heart of the country with an enormous price on his head. He bears the mark of many battles. He has 17 scars to show for as many wounds. He has been twice shot through the body with minie balls. The last member of a most remarkable gang of bandits that ever infested the country, he comes at lasi voluntarily to place himself within the hands of the law. When the train reached Inde pendence, the crowd fell back upon the meeting of James with his motter, wife and child, a boy of four years. Mrs. Samuels wept aloud, and her son's eyes were wet. The wife seemed to think only of the joy of meeting her husband again. The child looked won- deringly from his fathers shoulder upon the scene. The waiting officers joined the party, which then drove to the court house with all the sentiment which nec essarily surrounds history so mysterious and events so dramatic. There rests a conviction among the citizens generally that the law should take its impartial course and justice be meted out as seems best. The reeling expressed. however, has nothing of open violence and there is no possible danger of any attempt in that direction. Later Frank James has just been sent to the county jail at Independence, ball being refused. JAMES AT CHICAGO. Chicago, October 6. It has been discovered that Frank James spent last week in this city, sleeping at night at the Sherman house under the assum ed name of Pratt, and spending his days on the west side In consultation with friends from Missouri with refer ence to his surrender. The letter to Gov. Crittenden is said to have been written here and carried to St. Louis for mailing. One of the United States deputy marshals here became aware of his presence here and swore out a war rant before the United States commis sioner charging James with robbing the United States mails. For some unknown reason, however, the deputy made no effort to arrest his man. James left for Missouri Monday morn ing. Previous to his coming here he was at Quebec and Cleveland. MICHIGAN FISH. An Exhibifon of Them to be Hade in England. DeVotl Poit and Tribune, Oct. I. Frank JS. UlarK, superintendent ox Lna Northville rlsh hatchery, is in the citr cettinif uhotocraDhs of fishing scenes, fish houses, rlsh packing, dif ferent kinds or rerngeraiors ror pre serving rlsh, eta, for the international flh exDosition to be held in April next in London England. To-day Mr. Clark, accompanied by uanuan, ine pnoiog- rapher, and Mr. uuoois unignt, win on tn Tiftlla lale to "take" the scenes connected with active fishing. The negative in each case win oe sent to Washington and -Drougni up" in crayon. On Monday Mr. uiarx wiu go to Sandusky, Toledo and the islands of lake Erie for the purpose of making sketches or sucn matters connecicu with the fish industry as may present themselves. In about 10 days, Alpena, Mackinaw and St Ignace will be visit ed. Care will be taken not to dupli cate sketches. All of the works at Northville, con sisting of the hatching house and the grounds and ponds, will be photograph edand sent to the exposition. Mr. Clark designs making an exhibiton of all the lake fishes, which will be pre served in alcohol. It is intended to make brook trout the main feature of the exhibition from this state. The process of hatching through all its various stages will be photographed, and after hatched the little fish will be put up in alcohol, at various ages. It is the intention of Mr. Clark to get the largest single trout to be found for ex hibition. He has one now that weigh! four and a half pounds, which was re cently caught at the Sault He hopes to get a larger one than that if pos sible. The same work is being per formed with the California trout as with the brook trout, in order to show how much faster the former grows than the latter. Both specimens are grown at the state hatchery at North ville. A fine steamer is being fitted up at Washington to transport the specimen fishes in England. The Hillsdalea Home Again--The Whitney- MoEldowney Regatta. The Hillsdale crew arrived home at 11 o'clock Monday, and were tender ed a reception by their townsfolk at Hillsdale. They arrived at Philadel phia by the steamship Indiana on Sun day, and were tendered a reception there by the Schuykill navy, but de clined on account of business engage ments at home. They are all in good health, and Capt. Terwilliger said that while he regretted the misfortunes sur rounding their English visit he was well satisfied that the masses in Eng land were disposed to fair play, and to show them every consideration. He said that they were barred from the races for which they were entered by the efforts of a few individuals who seemed determined to make their stay as unpleasant as possible. He express ed the firm belief that the race with the Thames crew could have been won by his men if the accident to the seat of their boat had not occured, and he denied that the crew was in any way dlstresssd at the time of the casualty. He also said that the Englishmen had acknowledged that the Hillsdale four was the fastest crew they ever encountered. Two days before the crew rowed over the course in practice in 20 minutes and 17 sec onds. The time made by the winning crew was 20:40. Owing to the fact that the Hillsdales and Centennials de cline to enter in the Whitney-McEl-downey regatta, and to the lateness in the season, the managers have decided to call the regatta off. The affair was a money-making one, and it was sug gested that money could be made and a great crowd gathered to see the profes sional oarsmen row, but the projectors of the scheme were in for a sure thing without taking any chances, and con sequently abandoned the whole project. Tendregon. in his account of the Hillsdale-Thames race, published in the London Referee, states that the Thames crew had closed up the gap between the two crews to within one length before the Hillsdales claimed to have broken the seat or slide. Different Opinions. We generally receive just what we seem to expect from our fellowmen. Every man has both silver and base metal in his character, and it depends on ourselves whether he gives us the dollar or the cent. You may perhaps be thrown in contract with people who are utter strangers to you at boarding house or hotel. Keep the conversation keyed to the fashions, the gossip of politics, or tawdry, social ambitions, and you shall receive nothing from them but mere vapid innuities, dead and wearisome as the wash of stale water in the town gutter. Another person comes among them, a sensible well-bred man or womanly woman, and straightway they stand upright; the loutish schoolboy is a manly fellow, the giggling belle shows herself gentle and affectionate, or the hard politician turns out to be n critical scholar. The new comer takes away from each some fine note of human harmony to invig orate his own journey. Again, there are families so notoriously quarrelsome that they are strangers to anything like peace. But a guest comes among them, expecting courtesy and generosi ty, and each member of the !& grumpish household brings his better self to sieht. Men and woman, nm. perly treated, will ever give to us their best if we demand it in the right spirit. Utilisation of Old Castings too Large to Break Up.
