ONLY A-QUAKER CRAYK.
MILLER'S STOIIY OP KOBoSuY
A FAIRY TAIiE.
Yhe Old Bine Vrt Which He Alleged
Had Been Stolen With Hl* Money
Found Doing Duty as a Cheat Pro
tector Tha Man Held for a Board
Bill.
Atlanta, Ga., Feb. It.—Telegrams
%ere received here this morning from
Lebanon, 0., from Sheriff llunter and
Chief Elder Klapp, of a Shaker settle-
Went near Lebanon, stating that Jacob
Miller, the alleged Quaker who claimed
to have beon robbed of $28,000 Thursday
night, is a crank and fraud. Oil the
strength of these telegrams Capt. Crim
mrrested Miller, and having taken him to
the station had him thoroughly searched.
Stuffed under his shirt front was found
the blue vest which he said had been
SUdf.n. No money or cbecks were louud.
ln| pas valise was found an old pock t
book containing several cbecks for large
amounts which Aliller admitted that he
himself had written. He confessed that
his story of the big robbery was a fabri
cation, but gave no reason for his lying.
He did not have a cent of money on his
person. Capt. Crim held him for cheat
ing and swindling nis landlady, to whom
he owes sls lor board. He seems to be a
harmless crank. Some people think the
Wan is crazy on the subject of buying
real estate, but tne police believe him to
be a cunning fakir.

Augusta. Ga., Feb. 11.—With the ap

action are themselves prominent Knights.
It is proposed to attach the funds ot
the order now known to be deposited
in Philadelphia banks, and a bill in equity
in the Pennsylvania courts will he tiled

can furnish evidence ol a contract rela

Knights, the legality of that board will
then be established. The constitution of

Tlie American Consul General at

From the Hero York Herald.
City of Mexico, via Galveston, Feb.
9.—The Two Republics to-day publishes
the following interview with Consul Gen
eral Porch regarding his removal:
A copy of the telegram announcing the ap
pointment of Mr. More was i-hown to Mr.
Porch and he said: “I have beon expecting
Ibis for some time. This, however, is the first
tune 1 have heard that my successor’s name
had been actually sent in. Blit that some
action of the kind would be taken I have
known of, or at least supposed for some days
past. The first positive information I had
was some two weeks ago. Then I
received a letter from Senators
V est and Cockrell, of my Stale, saying that
Mr. Bayard had told them he would remove
me on account of my action when I accused
Mr. Sedgawick of getting drunk in tnis city.
The letter continued that if I wanted to re
sign I could do so, the resignation to take
effect on April 1. The next day f received a
letter from senator Cockrell asking for a full
and open pccount of the whole busi
ness. Of course I did not reel that
in justice to myself and to mv
friends 1 conld resign, as I had done nothing
but what I considered and still consider my
duty, and to resign would have placed me
under a cloud. So 1 wrote, giviug a lull ex
position of the disgraceful affair.
refusing to resign.
Last Friday Minister Manning railed upon
me with a telegram from Mr Bayard in
structing biro to ascertain from Consul Gene
ral Porch if he had forwarded his resignation.
I told Mr. Manning I had not; that I knew of
no reason why f should do so; that there were
no charges against me. and that I would not
resign unless some cause for my doiug so
could be shown. A day or two afterward Mr.
Manning called on me again with a telegram
from Mr. Bayard, instructing him to inform
me that the President desired my resignation
by telegraph. I again emphatically refused,
and the nomination of my successor is the re
sult—a result I expected. You see it is the
only tiling they could do. as the President can
neither remove nor suspend me while the
Senate is in session. He can send In my suc
cessors name, find, if ihe Senate confirms Mr.
More’s appointment, he will come to Mexico
and 1 w 11 then turn overthe office to him.
FIGHT TO THE BITTER END.
‘•AVhat are you going to do?” asked your
correspondent.
“Fight—light to the bitter end. I have been
unjustly, not to say outrageously deait with,
and Ido uot propose calmly to submit. Mr.
Bayard has only heard one side of the story
and refuscu to listen to the other. Mr. Sedgc
wick had tne secretary’s ear, and. of course,
told him. as he told everybody else, that that
story of his debauch was an outrageous lio,
and that I lent my aid to formulate it. 1 tele
graphed to Mr. Bujrard offering my reasons
for mv course in the matter, and to show him

tion but dictated it. X offered to prove my
charges against Mr. Sedgwick by undeniable
evidence. Mr. Bayard's only answer was a
request made through a third party for my
resiguation. He never gave me a chance.
AND WON'T GIVE IN.
“I now propose to give jnyself this chance
by publishing my case to Ihe world and al
lowing the public to judge of the justness of
my cause. Everything in connection with the
case will be madt* public. Everything! 1
will show Mr. Sedegwickiup through unim

CLEVELAND'S LO-T BROTHER.
How Lewis Cleveland Met His Deatli
on a Burned Steamer.
From the Centre y for Feb ua>y.
A tragedy is conneo’ed with the princi
pal hotel, the Royal Victoria, which as
sociates it with our own recent history.
It is brought to mind by a notice found
in tbe Nassau Guardian of fourteen years
ago, to this effect:
Notice.—All persons having demands
against the estate of the late Lewis F. Cleve
land. deceased, arc requested to render state
ments thereof, duly attested, on or before the
first day of May next ta John 8. Darling, Es
quire.
And all persons who are indebted to sßid
estate arc requested to make immediate pay
ment to the said J. S. Darling.
Ukover Cleveland,
W. W. Stephenhon,
Jan. 20, 1873. Executors.
One oi these executors has since been
called to administer upon a larger estate.
The occasion ot his visit to Nassau in
1873 was the sudden and melancholy death
ol ins brother, lb® lease® ol the hotel. He
was lost on the steamer Missouri, burned
ott'Abaoo island on the morning of Dot.
i‘4. 1872. Another brother of President
“JJjeveland, Mr. R. C. Cleveland, and a
VaiUier-in-law were also among the vic
tims of this disaster. Lewis Cleveland
was a man of strong personality, and stor
ies told of him would indicate that some
of the characteristics of his distinguished
brother are family traits. An inexorable
rule of his hotel management forbade
the payment ol fees. One waiter
who accepted a ’Christmas gift was
promptly dismissed. The lady whose
gratitude for special services had thus
found expression finally secured the re
versal of the sentence ou condition that
tbe gilt should be retored. “1 will nut,”
■afaOfr. JJieveland, “have those la my
hou-e wnoVie unable or unwilling lo tee
the servants put to any disadvantage.” it
is told ot Mr. Cleveland that, as be was
on Ids way to the steamer at New York,
he said: “1 do not know how it is. but 1
have an impression that 1 cannot get rid
of that this will tie my last voyage.” bo
it proved, not only to him, but to sixty

A TALK IVII H VON MOLTK K.
The Veteran Commanded ou Grant
and Hancock.
From the ye're Y rh World.
Philadelphia, Feb. B.—Capt. Malbro
Frazier, one of the best known of the j
military men of Philadelphia, has re- j
turned from a two years’ sojourn In j
Europe. While abroad he had a long per
sonal interview with the great com
mander of the German army, Gen. von
iloltke, being one of the very few Amer
icans to whom such an audience has i
been granted. Speaking of the interview
today he said:
”1 called on Gen. von Moltke at his
palace, just outside the gates, at the end i
td the famous road called Unter den Lin- j
den. He sent word almost immediately
that he would see me. As I stepped
across the threshold be said: ‘You are an
American?’ ‘Y'es.’ ‘•A soldier?’ ‘Y'es.’
‘And you served under Gen. Grant?,
•Yes.’ ‘And under Gen. Hancock, too?’
•And under Gen. Hancock.’ ‘Then 1
am very glad to see you. Sit you down.’
“Tue General, who is 87 years of age,
was simply dressed. His coat was
single-breasted. Round bis neck was the
order of the Iron Cross. We spoke in
English, ana 1 considered it remarkable
that be mentioned no nuines of Generals
except those of Grant and Hancock. He
reterred particularly to the battle of Get
tysburg, and spoke of it as a great strate
gic contest. 1 asked him what his
opinion was ot Gen. Grant .
‘ • ‘Gen. Grant’s loss,’ he replied, ‘was a
great loss. He was a great General. He
was one ol the greatest that has ever
lived.’
‘•‘And Gen. Hancock?”
“’Gen. Hancock was a brave soldier.’
“Speaking of German military affairs
he observed that caution that seemschar
acteristic of German officers generally.
He said: ‘Wo have long been endeavor
ing to make the German army the best in
Europe, aud 1 am beginning to believe
tuat we are succeeding. We are also
endeavoring to keep it in a slate of con
stant preparation.’ He did not once refer
to France or French military men. As I
was leaving he shook me cordially by the
hand. ' *
“‘1 will call again when I am in Ber
lin,’ 1 said.
‘“lt will be useless,’ he replied, ’unless
you return very soon.’
“•Why?’
“‘Because, sir, I came in with the cen
tury, but 1 shall not see it go out. lam
not for long.’”
“A LIGHT, PLEASE!”
Reasons YVliy a Man Should Not
Loan His Lighted Cigar.
From the St. Louis Republican..
A placid and callow-looking young
man, who wore a silk hat, a tur-trimmed
coat, light overgaiters and patmt leather
shoes, tripped nimbly up to a well-fed
man seated in the Lindell Hotel lobby
yesterday and raised a mutilated “snipe”
to his lips with “A light, if you please?”
Tbe well-fed man continued to work his
half smoked cigar while be made a care
ful search of seven of his pockets fur a
match. The plaoid, half-breed dude kept
an uneasy gaze at the burning cigar.
Two minutes passed in that wav. and the
well-fed man was tired, and he showed it.
DIDN’T HAVE A MATCH.
“I haven’t a match, but you can prob
ably get a light at the cigar stand,” said
he, rising to point out to the young man
an alcohol blaze not ten steps away.
“Beg y’r pawdou,” gasped the callow
one, while a flush ot indignation chased
over his taco.
The well-led man resumed his seat and
puffed away serenely at his cigar. There
seemed to be nothing new to him in the
occurrence, but it was uot common, and
those about recognized It as a rare in
stance oi courage, and it was the theme
for the next half hour’s chat.
“That was right,” observed tbe first to
speak, “and, though it is a little innova
tion of the popular custom, it is a com
mon-sense a/si. I always carry matches
for the benefit of my friends, as well as for
myself, that I may be able to smoke my
own cigar, but if I chance to be caught
without a match 1 never have the courage
to refuse to turn over my cigar when
asked lor a ‘light.’ 1 consider it
impertinence
to ask a man for a light off his cigar, but
custom has established that impertinence
so firmly you are criticised if you attempt
to Inaugurate anew era for smokers.”
"It is an old, weather-beaten and fool
isb idea that courtesy makes it necessary
to let every stranger, without considera
tiou of his occupation, handle your
cigar,” offered a gentleman ou tne other
side ol the well-led man. “1! lam smok
iug a cigar and itisiiaif or three-quarters
burned, 1 am not going to let a stranger
handle it and then return it to my mouth.
A gentleman who thinks before he acts
would not expect me to, and when 1 hap
pen to be without a match and do not feel
flush enough to buy another cigar, I po
litely inform the man that I am without a
match. It is only occasionally you run
upon a man who is so rude as to ask you
why you don’t
GIVE HIM YOUR CIGAR.”
“But, if he should?”
“Well, in that castsmy explanation is
adapted to the length of time I have to
spend with the person. There are a thou
sand aud one objections to the practice.”
“it was only yesterday,” interrupted
an attentive listener, “thatl saw a physi
cian stop cutting the diseased flesh of a
patient aud light a cigar. Three minutes
later a man dropped around aud asked
the physician for a light. lse gave it to
him. 1 wouldn’t have touched his cigar,
nor would 1 have allowed him to have
touched one 1 was smoking, lor man is

and in addition to tuese there are not a

Advice to Mothers.
Mrs, Winslow’s Soothing Syrup should
aiwaysbe used when children are cutting
teeth, it relieves the Uttlo sufferer at
once; it produces natural, quiet sleep by
relieving the child from pain, and the
little cherub awakes as “bright as a
button.” It is very pleasant to taste, it
soothes the child, softens the gums, al
lays ali pain, relieves wind, regulates the
bowels, aud is the best known remedy for
diarrhoea, whether arising from teething
or other causes. 25cents a bottle.
