Dr. David Kennedy, Rondout, N. Y.:
Dear sir My son, a iaa or nxteen, eaitor or wie
'Oo-Ahead" amateur ioumal. of this citv. has been
at different times most severely, and apparently
hopelessly, afflicted with Salt Rheum. When arery
small child his body was almost entirely covered
with this loathsome eruption. It mostly psssed
away, however, after the teething period, and he
was net seriously troubled with it again until abou
one year ago, when the Salt Rheum first appeared
on his hands between his fingers, then on his limbs,
then on his face and head in one solid mass. His
condition was terrible. The rash resembled ivy
poisoning, and we at nrst rancied it nugnc De some
thing not so bad as his old troubles, but the physi
cians pronounced it Salt Rheum, and made every
effort, without avail, to cure it. We tried a prepar
ation widely advertised as a specific for skin dis
eases, but it made about as much of an impression
as so much cold water might have done. You can
understand the situation when I say we were in
despair of obtaining real help from aay source.
At this point, through the advice of Mr. J. W. Ba
con, whose daughter had been cured of Salt Rheum
oy it, i tnea iiJi.r't-Wii'i' i o ravuiuiri fiLouwi.
This was the right and only thing at last. The skin
began to heal at once, and to-day the evidence of
the disease has wholly disappeared. How thankful
we are. Dear Doctor; I leave you to imagine.

Augusta, Me., Nov. 18, 1869.
My dear Mr. Fisher It is quite evident to
my mind that at the approaching session of
Congress there will bo an expansion of the
enrrencv to the amount of fifty to seventy-
five millions of dollars. The form it will
take I think will be an addition to the na
tional bank circulation west and south. My
object in writing is to ask in season if
your friends would desire to establish a bank
at Little Rock. It will be to some
extent a matter of favoritism as to
who gets the banks m the
several localities and it will be in my
power to "cast an anchor to the windward
in your behalf" if you desire it.
Please think over the matter and confer with
Mr. Caldwell and let me know your aesires
as soon as you reach any conclusion. There
is of course no special hurry, but I thought I
would suggest the matter in order that you
might mature your thoughts in good
. Yours very truly,

Augusta, Deer. 29, 1870.
My dear Mr. Fisher: I am in hopes now
that I shall secure $25,000 or nearly that. I
find money very tight. I have seen most of
the parties to whom bonds are due. I do
not have much trouble about the January
coupon of the first mortgage bonds but
they of course growl some; on six on the
bonds I would be glad to have the coupon.
I promised them individually to make it
right in the future. I did not in any way
use the name of the company nor
commit you to anything only myself.
On the land bonds I cannot make
them see the equity of- removing the April
coupon and I promised to try and adjust the
matter with you after my return to Boston.
They all agree with one voice that no bond shall
be exposed for sale. I wish you could give
me the benefit of that fraction, making thirty-two
of the first mortgage bonds for the
$31,500 due. I use the extra $500 in adjusts
ing the interest matter and it fits in com
pletely. I will make it all right with you.
It is very important that I have everything
completed by Saturday. Please meet me at
Mr. Caldwell's private office on Saturday at
12:15 sharp. Yours in great haste,

Mv dear Mr. Fisher I have this moment
written to Mr. Caldwell suggesting that in
case I can arrange a meeting in this city next

on here I have some reason for believing
that a very advantageous arrangement
can be made for taking say $300,
000. Let me have an accurate and re
liable statement of your financial
condition and I can do something, I feel very
sanguine with Mr. Scott. I think you will
not deem me unreasonable when I again and
persistently urge that I ought also to have
the 482.000 bonds which were made by your
self and Mr. Caldwell the express basis of
the $25,000 loan. . I do not believe your com
pany has a stronger or more equitable and
legal claim than mine, while its personal
hardships to me are bitter and burning and

Washington. April 21
Mv dear Mr. Caldwell: On the 29th inst.
the second note of the loan I negotiated in
December last falls due. The first for
$2,032.60 100, which fetf due March 1, I
was compelled to meet at the gravest pos
sible inconvenience. I drew on Mr. Fisher
for the amount, but he declined to notice the
draft. The notice wmcn talis aue on tne
29th inst. is for $2,578.35100.
It seems extremely hard and unjust that I
should be compelled to pav this money. It
is no more my debt than the debt of
President Grant or uueen s victoria,
and I cannot believe that you and Mr. Fisher
intend to leave this burden on me.-v If you
do it will crush me. I have no possible
means wherewith to meet these notes. I beg
of you and Mr. Fisher either or both to come
to my relief. In a letter fromrMr. Fisher un
der date of January 26, he writes me as fol
"In regard to the $25,000 which yon borrowed and
loaned to Mr. Caldwell, or rather Sir. Pratt, as it
was assumed by Mr. Pratt because you received
from him $50,000 land borJas for the amount, upon
my visiting the office for the first time after you
left the city, Mr. Pratt said he and Mr. Farrington
gave to you their individual bonds, and they Kept
the money, and in order to obtain the money and
get it out of Mr. Pratt's hands, I obtained $o0,000
land bonds and took what I supposed to be money,
but it was not there. Part of it bad been misap
plied to other matters. Fifteen thousand dollars
of it I loaned Mr. Caldwell. The balance went into
a house at Little Bock without my knowledge or
consent, and Pullman cars, &c, &c."
Now, my dear sir, if this be a correct state
ment may I hope you will relieve me to the
extent of $15,000 and Mr. Fisher will surely
pay the other $10,000. As a wholly innocent
third party, doing my best to act as a sincere
and steadfast friend to both of you, I ought
not to be left exposed to financial ruin and
personal humiliation. Sincerely yottn,
J. G. Blaine. "'

Caldwell of April 21, 1871.
Augusta, June 18, 1871.
My dear Mr. Fisher1 I tried very hard yes
terday and the day before to see you. I am
in a very painful and embarrassed situation
growing out of my- connection with the Fort
Smith enterprise. I have paid and caused to
be paid into your treasury about $250,000 and
the only result to me is the most
painful perplexity. Now I have a proposi
tion to make you wmcn 1 think is most liber
al and fair, going as far as I can possibly
go without ruining myself past all recovery.
Now if you will take up the $10,000 of cou
pons, paying me the cash therefor and give
me the $45,000 of bonds, I will let all the
remainder of our matters stand until you are
ready to open correspondence on the subject
yourself. I trust in consideration of our
many years of rnenasnip, as well as in view
of the peculiar relations I have held in this
matter, you will make an effort to do this.

Mr. Blaine's letter of October 1, 1871, al
ready published is the answer to this letter:
.boston, uctooer 5S4, '71.
My dear Blaine Yesterday I received your
favor of the 21st inst. , to which I replied by
telegram, "Mr. C. has not been in this city
for four weeks. He is now in St. Louis." In
the meantime I can say nothing further than
what I have heretofore told you that Mr.
Caldwell represented to me that he paid for
your account, and for which he has your re
ceipts, all but $2,500 of the $25,000 which
you loaned and for which you received as
collateral $50,000 of the Little Rock
bonds which you since sold, realizing
therefor $30,000, leaving you in advance of
funds even if Mr. Caldwell had paid you
nothing. I have heretofore advised you that
I had been frequently importuned for the se
curities of the Northern Pacific and as a laet
resort I had to surrender your obligation for
the benefit of the parties in interest, who
now say that after so long a delay thev will
not take the securities, but require you to
refund the money. I remain
Augusta, Nov. 8, 1871.
My dear Mr. Fisher: I am pressed for the
bonds. Let me assure you that if I were
suffering in this matter I would not bother
you, but how can I do this with parties who
have paid their money earnestly demanding
of me the consideration promised by me? I
will sacrifice a great deal to get a settlement.
I do not wish to seem importunate and
troublesome, but if you knew the agonies I
have suffered in this matter during the past
six months you would pity me, I am sure,
and make great etrort to relieve me.
Yours very sincerely, J. G. Blaine.

The following was in reply to Mr. Blaine's
letter of April 13, 1872, already published:
Boston, April 16, 1872.
My dear Blaine Your favor of the 13th
inst. reached me this morning. I am sur
prised at its contents. I have loaned yon at
various times when you were comparatively
poor very large sums of money and never
nave you paiu me une uuiitu- unjiu your own
pocket either principal or interest. I have
paid sundry amounts to others to whom
you were indented and tnese debts
you have " allowed to stand unpaid
like the notes which I hold.
I have placed you in positions whereby you
have received very large sums of money
without one dollar of expense to you. and
you ought not to forget the act on my part. Of
all the parties connected witn tne uttie Kock
and Fort Smith railroad no one has been so i
fortunate as yourself in obtaining money out
of it. xou obtained subscriptions from
your friends in Maine for the building of the
Ti.il. T 1- 1 T,' L o : . 1. ;l j
Xjlttltt xtucn. uull I uru ouubu ruixiuau.
Out of their subscriptions you obtained
a large amount both of bonds and money
free of cost to you. I have your own figures
and know the amount. Owing to your polit
ical position you were able to work off your
bonds at a very high price and the fact is
well known to others as well as myself.
Would your friends in Maine be satisfied if
they knew the facts? Are my as
sociates satisfied to have you ob
tain $25,000 for the Northern Pacific rail
road and you not make the investment
as per agreement? The course you have
thought proper to take in regard to my re
quest is rather a poor one taking your rela
tions with me, and I egain ask you to recon
sider it and gTant it. You will find it much
easier to pay by obtaining the credit, and I
selected that course thinking it to be the
best. If you again decline I shall be obliged
to use the notes or sell them to outside pur
chasers. Necessity knows no law. What
ever bonds are still due to you will be de
livered as the road progresses. To the
other portions of your letter I make no re
ply. You know the facts. It is sufficient
that I know them and it is useless to men
tion them at this time. Please answer at
once. I remain respectfully yours,
Warren Fisher, jr.
The reply to this letter is Mr. Blaine's let
ter of April 18, 1872, already published. The
expression "obtaining the credit" in the
above letter reters to a request oy Mr. Fisher
that Mr. Blaine would give him a letter of
credit to be drawn against by Mr. Fisher
during a proposed European trip, Mr. Blaine
at the same time being indebted to Mr. Fisher
for borrowed money for which Mr. Fisher
held Mr. Blaine's demand promissory notes.
WASHINGTON, April It), 1876.
My dear Mr. Fisher You can do me a
very great favor and I know it will give you
pleasure to do so, just as I would do for you
under similar circumstances. Certain per
sons and papers are trying to throw mud at
me to injure my candidacy before the Cin
cinnati convention and you may observe
they are trying it in connection with the
Little Rock and Fort Smith matter. I want
you to send me a letter such as the enclosed
draft. You will receive this to-morrow
(Monday) evening and it will be a favor
I shall never forget if you will at once write
me the letter and mail the same evening.
The letter is strictly true, is honorable to
you and to me and will stop the mouths of
slanderers at once. Regard this letter as
strictly confidential. Do not show it to any
one. The draft is in the hands of my clerk,
who is as trustworthy as any man can be. If
you can't get the letter written in season for
the 9 o'clock mail to New York please be
sure to mail it during the night so it will
start on the first mail Tuesday morning. But
if possible I pray you to get it in the nine
o'clock mail Monday evening. Kind regards
to Mrs. Fisher. Sincerely J. G. B.

Boston, April , 1876.
Hon. J. G. Blaine, Washington, D. C.
Dear Sir: I observe that certain news
papers are making or rather insinuating the
absurd charge that you own or had owned
$150,000 of Little Rock and Fort Smith rail
road bonds and that you had in some wav
1 . i . " n j.1 ... J
uuuuuou buem ub a gratuity. Tne
enterprise of building the Little Rock
and Fort Smith railroad was undertaken in
1869 by accompany of Boston gentlemen of
whom I was one. The bonds of the road
were put upon the market in this city upon
what was deemed very advantageous terms
to the purchaser. They were sold largely
through myself. You became the purchaser
of about $30,000 of the bonds on precisely
the same terms that every other buyer re
ceived, paying for them in installments run
ning over a considerable period just as others
did. The transaction was perfectly open and
there was no more secrecy in regard to it than
if you had been buying flour or sugar. I am
sure you never owned a bond of the road that
you did not pay for at the market rate. In
deed I am sure that no one received bonds
on any other terms. When the road got into
financial difficulties and loss fell upon you
you still retained your bonds and you held
them clear through to the reorganization of
the company in 1874, exchanging them for
stock and bonds of the . new
company. You acquired also some
demands against the - new comoanv
by reason of your having joined with others
in raising some money when the company
was in need. For the recovery of that money
proceedings are now pending in the Uniied
States Circuit court in Arkansas to which
you are openly a party of record. Conceal
ment of the investment and everything con
nected with it would have been very easy had
concealment been desirable, but your actions
in the whole matter was as open and as fair
as ine aay. wnen tne original
enterprise failed I knew with what
seventy tne pecuniary Ices fell upon you and
with what integrity and nerve you met it.
Years having since elapsed it seems, rather
hard at this late day to be compelled to
meet a slander in a matter where your con
duct was in the highest degree honorable and
straightforward. Yon may use this letter in
any way that will be of service-to you.
Very sincerely yours,
W. Fisher, jr.
The words "Indeed I am sure that no one
received bonds on any other terms" were in
terlined in the foregoing letter in Mr. Blaine's
We hereby certify the foregoing to be true
and correct copies of the originals.

THE Fit AN CO-CHIN E8K WAR.
Admiral Courbet Ordered' to Resume
Paris, Sept. 14. Prime Minister Ferryi
after a conference with the Secretaries of
War and Marine, General Campenot and Ad
miral Peyron has telegraphed to Admiral
Courbet to resume warlike operations at
once. General Campenon refused to assent
to the despatch of more troops from the
cadres in France unless war against China
should be declared. His advice was that the
number of reinforcements should be limited
to 1,000 men, and that these should be sent
from Africa. Admiral Courbet, on the re
ceipt of M. Ferry's despatch, left Matson,
where he had been lying for some days past,
with his whole fleet, and started for the
North. In the circles best informed the
opinion prevails that Nankin will be the
next object of Admiral Courbet's attack.
A cabinet council was held yesterday
in accordance with previous an
nouncements, for the discussion of
the Chinese question. Prime Minis
ter Ferry distinctly confirmed the report that
China had not declared war. Admiral Pey
ron, minister of marine, read dispatches
from Admiral Courbet which stated that he
would resume operations as soon as he re
ceived reinforcements and a fresh supply of
provisions. The Chinese question was the
only subject discussed. The question of
convoking the chambers was left to be de
cided by the cabinet council of Sep
tember 23. It is stated on good au
thority that the meeting was an ex
ceedingly stormy one. Several members urg
ed M. Ferry to convoke the Chambers at
once. They gave as a reason that the peas
ants were becoming alarmed at the 'prospect
of a big war with China. M. Ferry ridiculed
the idea. One more lesson, urged M. Ferry,
will bring China to her senses. M. Ferry's
calculations, the strategists claim, will surely
be upset in the event of a formal declaration
of war by China. Then he will probably be
forced to convene the Chambers and lay his
policy before the. people.
Troops Gone to Join Courbet.
Paris, Sept. 14. The Temps correspond
ent at Hai Fong, an open port near the
mouth of an arm of the Tonquin river, tele
graphs that six companies of marines from
the French garrison left there to-day under
orders to join Admiral Courbet, who has
started from Matson with his entire fleet.
Six other companies have gone from Saigon,
the capital of French Cochin-China, on a like
mission. The dispatcn or tnese remrorce
ments to the front is evidence that the ad
miral has received Premier Ferry's order to
resume warlike operations at once, although
China has not declared war.
A TEXAN VENBETTA.
A Cattle Dealer Empties a Shotgun
and Revolver In His Enemy's Body.
Galveston, Sept. 14. A special despatch
from Sherman, Texas, says: At a late hour
last night Joseph Gunter, a wealthy cattle
dealer, shot and killed Dan Thompson, the
proprietor of a large saloon here and another
at Dallas. Thompson was indebted to Gun
ter to the extent of $5,000. Gunter levied
on Thompson's property and the latter
threatened publicly to kill him for doing so.
Taking his position in the hallway of his sa
loon last night, Thompson waited for Gunter
to pass, intending when he did so to shoot
him. Gunter was warned of his danger and
armed himself with a shotgun and pistol. He
entered the saloon, where Thompson was
then sitting, and emptied the contents of both
weapons into Thompson's breast. Gunter is
a peaceable ana nignly respected citizen and
one of the wealthiest men in Northern Texas.
He was arrested and held to await the action
of the grand jury.

to return to his starting point. The propeller

A LUNATIC AT LARGE.
Armed With n Winchester Rifle He
makes Terror In a Town.
Wellington, Kan., Sept. 14. This city
was thrown into the wildest excitement yes
terday morning by the sudden appearance on
the streets of Frank Jones, armed with a
Winchester rifle and firing into the residences
of various citizens. Among others he stop
ped in front of the house of J. M. McKee,
through which he fired twelve shots, smash
ing the. furniture and wounding a small
child of McKee. An alarm was quickly
raised, and in a few minutes the citizens
were up in arms. Jones was mounted on a
pony, and while galloping up Washington
avenue shot William Gaines, street commis
sioner, inflicting a dangerous wound. He
next discharged several shots into the house
of his brother, but tne family bad escaped to
a neighbor's. Fleeing to the country he was
pursued and captured a mile from town.
About a week ago Jones was brought before
a jury to have his sanity passed upon. Since
then he has threatened the lives of all who
testified against him, and yesterday he was en
deavoring to carry his threats into execution.
Public opinion seems divided as to his insan
ity. He is now in jail and great fear is en
tertained that he will be lynched.

The many friends of Mr. Horace W. Hurl
but, of 143 St. John street, will be pained to
learn of his severe sickness at his residence,
he having been sick now for several days

which was of his selection, was feelingly
rendered at his home and at the grave by a
choir of his young friends. His simple tastes
regarding flowers were carefully studied and
a quiet arrangement of ivy, roses, jessamine
and a few calla lilies was the only adornment
of the casket. Rev. E. W. Babcock and
