In the Senate. His account of his first
Interview with Abraham Lincoln is
deeply interesting. He said:
"The next day, which was the day of
the execution of old John Urown In
Virginia, the 3el of December, 18fM), I
think, he camo to Atchison, where I
then llveel and still live, and was re
ceived by a committee of citizens. Ho
stopped at the Massasolt House, and
Was announceel for a speech hi tho
evening at the Methodist church. It
was a blttor cold winter's day, and he
made n speech of extraordinary power.
In which he anticipated very largely
the line of argument he employed a few
months later In his celebrated speech
In Cooper Institute in New York, and
a rHororxn jmi'iikssion
upon the peoplo who weie assembleel to
benr hlin, although his renutntton at
that time had only been derived from a
knowleelgo that had preceded him of
his debate with Stephen A. Douglas In
1SW. Alluding to the threats of tho
South to secede, Lincoln declared that
any attempt nt secession would be trea
sons and none who heard him can for
get the Impressive majesty of his ap
neatance as he drew himself up, and,
loaning forward with his arms extended
until they teemed to reach across the
small auditorium, said: 'If thoy at
tempt to put their threat Into execu

banged old John Urown today.' One
of the leading border rufrhns declined
thst it was the most powerful preeenta
tltn of Kepublican doctrine that he had
ever heard.
"Lincoln remained In Atchison until
the next day about noon, and the com
mittee appointed to entertain him. upon
going down HP the hotel next morning
after breakfatt, found him In the bar
room by a reel-hot box stove, engaged
In telling jokes and yarns and stories
to a crowd of overland stage drivers

frontier, who received his narrations

While the young Senator from Colo
rado Is not yet a full flwlgedstatesmnn,
he at least shows signs of growth, and
that is always encouraging. We accord
him this much praise after contrasting
the speech which he dellveretl at the
New Kneland dinner lu this city on
December 23, 1SS7, with his speech on
silver In the Senate this week,
In the course of his remarks to tho
New Knglandcrs lie said, speaking of
tho Coloradans: "We are a plain peo
ple and live far away. We find nil the
excitement wo need in the two great
political parlies, and we mther look
upon tho talk of anybody In elthor
party being bctler than his party ns n
soit of cant. The hypercritical faculty
has not reached us yet, and wc leave to
you of the Ihst tho exclusive occu
pancyof tho raised dais upon which It
seems necessary for the Independent
voter to stand while he is counted."
This Is the same party slave who elec
trified tho Senate last Tuesday by say
ing: If tie Wlndom recommendation, rt)
proved by the President, could Iinvo been
announced before tlio olectleti. It ts my
humble opinion that not a single State West
or the Missouri Hirer would have given a
Itcpubllcan majority. Not because the
Urge majority of the cittzensot those Mutes
were not and ore not ami will not always be
true and ttancli and earnest ltepubllcans,
lolng lie traditions of the party, ami true
to Its principles, but beeause they would
overuheliiiluftly rebuke a party that selected
as Its standard-bearer one unmindful of the
Interests of (he couutry, and dlsregardful of
the wlhes of the majority of Its mvmliers.

The depsrtnre of William T. Ilonrn
day, the well-known naturalist, to be
er m a real estate agent in Buffalo, has
bwn the chief theme for sowte ratlrer
frcy er.rnmwit among the scientific
circles here, who regret that the Gov
ernment should have allowed so ex
cellent a man to pass out of Ira service
and low the rewards of years of patient
Mr. Hotnaday Is one of the younger
group of naturalists who have been
drawn together here by the Smithsonian
Institution ami National Museum.
From his earliest youth he has been a
tlevoted student of animal life and
anatomy. He worked his way through
college, it Is said, by taking care of the
natural history collection of his Alma
Mater, ami soon went Into the employ
of Professor Ward, the Ilochester tax
idermist, who prepares n large share of
tho birds, beasts and reptiles which
find their way Into the museums of the
country. Ward sent him uoon several
expeditions In search of fresh material.
11b made one trip to South America,
and others to Asia and Africa, where,
not content with purchasing what na
tive hunters brought him,
ami studied the habits of all sorts of
rnvngo creatures In their own haunts
the knowledge thus acquired giving
him nn Immense advantage In his taxi
dermic work over competitors who had
pickcel up all their acquaintance with
their subjects through books. Ho also
enmo to bo recognized as one of the best
equipped practical naturalists on elthor
side of tho Atlantic; his roports were
quoted as authorities In the proceedings
of learned societies In nil parts of tho
world, and he wns frequently In receipt
of such flnttorlng attentions as when
Alfred IltiMoll Wallace hunted him out
for an Interview on tho fauna of the
Malay Peninsula, where Wallace him
self had made profound researches In
times gone by.
In duo season he was Invited to enter
the Government cmnlov nn tnxtdamUt
for the National Museum. Tho work
which ho did there Is
of which he may woll feel proud. It
Includes, among other things, the mar
voloutly llfollko group of bison which
he went West to procure, and which he
mounted In n stylo pronounced by con
noisseurs to bo without parallel evory
accessory and detail, oven to tho etrtii
and the scant verdure of the plains,
having been reproduced from nature,
jutt as found on the stamping-ground
of this now almost extinct race of cattle
Ills gorilla group has also been much
admired, and the hearty encomiums
patted upon his work generally caused
the authorities of the Institution to Imv
a large cumber of tho specimens which
be had got for hia former employer. In
the Inteivals of his regular duties he
found time for somo literary lalior,
and his "Two Years In n Jungle"
proved so popular that the author's
sharei of the profits enabled him to buy
a pretty home In the suburbs.
.It was always one of Hornadav's
bobbles that wo should havo In Wash
ington, nt the Government cxpenso and
under tho Government control,
To tho furtherance of this scheme ho
devoted all his energies for a lonirtlme,
studying tho methods and appliances
employed In all the great gardens of the
world. When the Idea finally took
shape In a very unpretentious annex to
the t-'inltbsonlun, he became the chief
functionary in cbarce, and on a trifling
allowance of money built up a menag
erie which, though small, was highly
creditable to Us author.
He even volunteered as a messenger
of the Fish Commission, and traveled
throush the West in search of .law nn!.
male, which he was permltteel to bring
home with him In an empty commission
car. It was a most Inconvenient man
ner of procuring his supplies, as lie was
provided with no assistants, ami had to
manage Ills bears and deer anel foxes,
etc., by himself, or with such spas
modic help as his associates on the car
would lend him through good nature,
llut Its hardships were compensated by
the fact that it was cheap, anel in his
enthusiasm his sole thought was how
much be could do with the pittance at
his disposal.
He Interested himself greatly In the
projtct for a permanent park In Hock
Creek Valley, and for about two years
haunted the Capitol dally during the
session of Congress, armed with maps
and diagrams, whkh he used la argu
ing with members who could not see
any advantage to result from the Gov
ernment's speBtilag so much money oa
aa "animal show." It was a tedious
campaign, but he won it, and the nec
essary appropriations for site aad lav
protements Anally were voted.
At this point came the first cheek to
his plans. 1'rofesaor Laagley, secru

aaiter ia eharae. preferred to place at

Owing to tho injury which Commis
sioner Douglass lecelvcd on Saturday,
the anticipated Investigation Into the
charges against the various poltco lieu
tenants was not commenced. As n
matter of fact the charges have not
yet been formulated, for Commissioner
Jlobert, who conductetl the Investiga
tion at tho request of tho other Com
missioners, is naturally averse to draft
I tip them himself and Is nnxloti9 that
tho board shall assume that respon
sibility. When Mr. Douglass recovers a board
meeting will be held and the charges
prepared. It Is understood that Lieu
tenant Guy will be tho first to bo tried,
and lt has not yet been dotormlnotl
whelhor tho trial will be an open or
tccrct one.
The probabilities aro. however, that
It will go on wlih closed doors, In jus
tice lo tho accused men, some of whom
inny bo cleared.
Commissioner llcbcrt Is exceedingly
anxious to have the cates decided, and
ho proposes to push them to n speedy
trial and conclusion.

in advance or July 4, and were caught
discharging firecrackers in the public
streets, "i want it understood that I
am thorousbly In sympathy with the
patriotic boys of the country? said the
Judge, "but I want to see them mani
fest their patriotism In come other
way than by endangering life ami

Chinese firecrackers." He lined the
two boys $10 each, but suspended sen
tence. Good
