THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, 0). 0., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1883.
At Afrstrtst df tk. Mare Important Bitceeittgs in Botk Bosses. WKDKB6DXY, SEPT. 5. In the Bonate, the conference report m the Anaj appropriation bill was submitted by Mr. Allison (Iowa; and adopted. The President appointed a new Conference Committee upon the qgemtionfi stilt remaining ia dispute between the two Houses on that measure. The Louisiana election troubles resolution was then considered, and Mr. Pasco (Fla.) ad drowed the Souate at great length. No con clusion whs reached. The Chinese immigration bill was then taken up, and the yeas and nays were ordered upon the measure, which revealed the &ct that a quorum was not present. The Senate accord ingly adjourned at 5:40 o'clock p. in. In the House, after the morniug hour, the bill to limit the jurisdiction of the District and Circuit Court of the United States was con sidered, remarks being made upon the measure by Mr. CuHtertsoa (Tex.), Mr. Weaver (Iowa). Mr. Hayes t Iowa) and Mr. Caswell (Wis.). The bill was read a third time and passed. The fisheries treaty was then taken up, and consumed the entire day's sessiou, the bill go ing ever uuder the rales. The House adjourn od at 5 o'clock. Thubsdax, Skit. 6. The Chinese exclusion bill was taken up, and Mr. Sherman (Ohio) suggested that before acting upon it they should discover whether the Chinese Government had rejected the treaty. If it should turn out that the Chinese Minister was now on his way freai Peru, prob ably with a ratification of the treaty or with some explanation about it, and if the Senate should hastily pass the bill it would be a sur prise to the whole country and to the whole civilized world. He had information from un doubted sources that the Chinese Government had taken no unfavorable action upon the treaty. The Senate only knew that the House of Kepresentatives had suddenly suspended its business in order to pass this bill on the motion of a gentleman who was supposed to be in favor with the Executive. Without 6uch informa tion Senators should not rush wildly like a flock of frightened partridges into the passage of the bill. If the bill were passed and the treaty were ratified the Senate would have placed itedf in tho ridiculous attitude of as Burning a fact which did not exist. If, on the contrary, the treaty were rejected, there would be ample time to pass the bill. He, therefore, asked the Senate to let the bill staud over for a day or two until the facts were ascertained. Mr. Stewart (Nev.) objected to laying the bill aside. Mr. Piatt (Conn.) said he was not will ing to vote lor it at present. He said that if, as the whole country believed, the bill ema nated from the Executive Department immedi ately after the acton the same subject had been laid before the President, it would be an Ex ecutive interference with the legislative branch of the Government. If the President had no tice, official or unofficial, that the Chinese Gov ernment had rejected the treaty, that notice bad been studiously concealed from every Re publican Member of the Senate. Had it come to this that high public office had been prosit -tattod for Democratic electioneering purposes? If not, what other reason existed for thrusting the bill ea the attention of Congress in such an untimely nay? If the vote was forced upon the Senate now he woald vote for the bill, be assise he was not going to act on'thc assumption that the pending bill was an electioneer hz Xr. Brown (Ga.) asked Mr. Sherman whether lie, a Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Xeiatrons, nad any information of the rejection Of the treaty. Mr. Sherman Certainly not. On the con tmry, I offered a resolution yesterday asking the President to give the Senate such informa tionMtd I hoped that that resolution would have been answered yesterday or to-day. But a gen tleman who has bad business with the Chinese I legation told me that he does not believe that te kjgatisc 1nBrwWVriatJanf thesjeyfti of the treaty ; that the Chinese Minister is ottlfnf way here, aud that there has been no objection, so far as known, to the amendments to the treaty. On the contrary, the Minuter himself assented to them at the time they were offered, and ft' was presumed, as a matter of course, that the treaty would be ratified. I feel free to say that 110 communication of any kind has come to the President of the United States in regard to t ne treaty. Mr. Bro-vu moved to amend the bill by ad mitting to land such Chinamen as, having left tbe couit-ry with certificates entitling them to xetnrn, were now on Ubeir way to the United States. To pass tba 1k$) without such a pro vision would be Atrj0kyaa& an outrage which exigency could justify. If this bill were passed, wUo could deny the right of the Chinese Governtufcut to expel from China every Ameri can merchant and missionary within the limits of that vast empire? And if this should be the result, there would be such an outcry against this legislation that, instead of political capital being made out of it, it would be the political downfall of the party regarded as most at fault. In the House Mr. Bromm (Pa.; and Mr. Scott (Pa.) had a leaghthy discussion of a political nature, Mr. Bntram charging Mr. Scott with having employed Piakerton detectives in the Pennsylvania coal and iron regions, which charges were denied by Mr. Scott. The b:il ta increase the efficiency of the Medical Division of the Pension Bureau was discussed without action. Mr. Sowden opposed any further increase of expenditures, and Mr. O'Neii! ( Mo. ; expressed the pleasure with which be had listened to Mr. Sowden 's valedictory. The retaliation bill was taken up and Mr. MeCreary Ky.) gave notice that he would call the prevKMt question upon it at 4 o'cleck to aoerrw. Mr. Scott 'Pa.) spoke at considerable length, stating that :u IS years the Canadian railroads bad received jEz,MKMiOG for the transportation of Ausmicut goods through Canada, 65 per cent eC winch, had it been expended in the United States, would have gone to labor and 35 per cent to capital. Under the treaty of 1871 $46800.000 had been taken away from the weriuugmeu of the country and $25,200,000 from the capitalists. On the other side of the balance sheet was the $5,500,000 which the United States had received under the Alabama award. He had no fear that the President would exercise the powers conferred upon him except as a last resort to protect the honor and interests of the American people. In the counts of his remarks he declared, on the testimony of a witness before the Ford Investigation Committee, that 75 per cent, of the fishermen engaged in the New England fisheries were not American citizens, but came from British provinces and were employed be cause they worked cheaper than American. At the oudttskm of Mr. Scott's speech the House adjourned at 6 o'clock p. ra. FMBiT, SUTT. 7. In the Senate, 'the Chinese exclusion bill vras taken up, and fn the coarse of the debate Mr. Vest (Mo.) admitted the falsity of the charge that Gen. Harrison's law partner had anything to do with, the naturalization of Chinamen in Indianapolis. While "Mr. Vest was speak tug communications were received from the President, inclosing, as the only official luformation at hand regarding the Chinese treaty, cooks of two telegrams from Mr. Denby. United States Minister to Pekin, the first dated Sept. S, in these words: "Be lieve treaty has been rejected. Have demanded from Fore.gr. Office positive information some days since. So information has been yet re ceived"; aud the second, dated Sept 6, in these words: Treaty postponed for further deliberation. Mr. Mitchell ("Ore.) was speaking in favor of the passage of the bill when the gavel fell and the presiding officer pat the question, "Shall the bill pass? " Mr. Gorman (Md.) endeavored to ppeak, but was stopped by the announcement of the presiding officer that debate was no longer in order, the Senate having agreed to vote on the bill at 1 o'clock to-day. Mr. Gorman moved that the bill and the President's message be referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations. The vote was taken on Mr. Gorman's motion, and the result was yeas 17, nays 19; ao quorum. Senators Hoar, Piatt and Sherman voted with the Democrats in the affirmative, aud Scnatom Berry, Payne, Turpie aud Vest with (Jte E publicans in the negative. Mr. Morgan had voted "no," bat withdrew that rote because he did not know how Mr. Evarts, with whom lie was paired, would vote. On a call of the Sena. 46 Senators answered to their aemes and fit jU was again taken, resulting in the d- ;Vat of Mr. Gorman's motion ve&s 19, nays -0 Senators Hoar, Piatt and Sher man again voted "aye" with the Democrats and Senators Berry, Payne, Turpie and Vest "no" with the Eepublic&ns. Tho question was then taken on tho passage of tho bill and the result was yeas 37, nays 3. Tho nega tive votes were given by Senators Brown, Hoar and Wilson of Iowa. Mr. Shormau did not vote at all. Mr. Gorman went on to argue that the bill should not have been passed in the light of tho information received from the President. If it should be recommitted to the Committee on Foreign Eelations, that committee can report a measure that will not be violative of onr treaty obligations, and that will not put us in that position in which tho Chinese Government will have the moral right to exclude all of our people from that empire. Looking ahead, and gathering from the pross the conditions be tween China and other great powers, the wholo trade of that continent may bo ready within six months to be transferred to us. If the sign of the times may be relied upon, this will bo the opportunity of all others which wo have sought for in the last 40 years to get possession of that trade, by only doing that which is fair and right aud manly. If we go on in the face of the information which wo have received to day (showing that this treaty is still pending), we will have dono that which has never been done in the history of this country, and which no other civilized nation would think of doing. After several votes, on which no quorum could be reached, tho frieuds of the bill recog nized the uselessness of further attempts to end the matter, and tho Senate adjourned, leaving the bill passed, bub the motion to re consider its passage pending. In the House, the retaliation bill was taken up, and Mr. Nutting (N. Y.) speaking in favor of it, said that the Canadian authorities had discriminated against American commerce passing through tho Welland and other Canadian canals, and the effect of this unfair treatment was that the commerce of Lake On tario was confined almost entirely to Canadian and English vessels. He charged against tho English Government that it had collected upon American cereals alone, passing through tbo Welland Canal, more than $600,000, and lie claimed that to-day, under article 27 of tho treaty of 1S71, England owed the United States that amount. Mr. Nutting argued that the President could long ago havo stopped this dis crimination against American vessels if he had chosen to exercise his power. Mr. Cannon (111.) expressed his surprise that the speech of Mr. Scott had not been published in the liecord, especially as Mr. Scott had stuck as closely to his manuscript as a sick kitten to her dam. The gentleman from Pennsylvania the leader and dictator of the Democratic party had, during tho past week, towered above overybody, with the Breckinridges, the McCrearys aud the Crispssinging low. Ho had a great respect for the goutleman. Everybody respected a man, especially when ho possessed $20,000,000, which it was whispered would bo poured like water into Pennsylvania. The Ad ministration had adopted the Chinese policy, and was trying to frighten Canada by beating gongs. The President already had a big gong ; but he said: "I am going into this busi ness; give me another hammer." Laughter. The President might scare Canada. Who knew? Oh, for a man in tho Presidential chair who would issue a proclamation to-morrow stopping the shipment of Canadian fish into the United States. In 48 hours the whole question would be solved. Mr. Cannon spoke of tho contradictory posi tions taken by the President. Now this man that towered like a Colossus among all, between sun-up and sun-down, under the wise manipu lation and crafty suggestions of the 20 times millionaire turned a double somersault and with an anathema against the Canadian Gov ernment, cried out, " Gore, gore, gore." Laugh ter. But nobody would be deceived. Every body understood that the present Executive was not going to spill his blood in war. The people would not be again fooled. The Presi dent sent in his message of December last, in which he discarded everything except free trade. The Mills bill was passed by the House, and there came the muttering thunders of dis approbation from every workshop and farm house in the country. The knees of Democrats shook as did those of Belshazzar. Their chief saw written on the wall "Mono, Mene, Tekel Upharsin; " and he turned around under the manipulation of the great gentleman from Pennsylvania and sent in a retaliation message. Thank God, this was a day of newspapers and BchoolhonltB, aw swtioww might as well un dertake to dip the Atlantic dry with a table spoon as to fool the loyal masses of the country by any such claptrap. Applause on Bepubli can side. Mr. Adams (111.) believed that the Honse should pass the bill, not to strengthen the hands of the President in his present position, but to strengthen the bauds of all future Presidents in their controversies with foreign nations, and to let all persons understand that though a Presi dent is elected for but four years, aud is criti cised by tho opposing party, when he tells Con gress that he needs additional power to deal with foreign powers he is entitled to the sup port even of those who hope to defeat him for re-election. After further debate it was agreed that a vote on the bill should be taken at 4 o'clock to morrow afternoon, and the House took a recess until S o'clock, the evening session to be for the consideration of private pension bills. The President to-day vetoed eight private pension bills, all of which origiunted in the House. The first granted a pension to Mrs. Jane Potts, as the widow of a soldier who en listed in 3981 and was mustered out of the service in 1865. It appears that ho was taken prisoner by the enemy, and endured for a long time the hardships of prison life. He was mar ried in 1871, and successfully conducted his business affairs until 1830. when by a decree of court he was adjudged insane, and that his dis ease was hereditary, ne committed suicide in 1S32. jlis widow filed an application for pen sion in 1385, claiming that the insanity which caused him to commit suicide resulted from hardships of prison life. The President says that the facts in the case have been thoroughly examined. Several witnesses testified that domestic trouble was the real cause of the sol dier's death ; that his wife was " a pretty rough woman," a "hard talker," "a virago," etc. He concludes that the military service of the soldier was in no way connected with his death. The second bill granted a pension to Russell L. Doaoe, a dependent father of DemsterDoane, late of Co. D, 35th N. Y. Of this case th e Presi dent says: "The only information I have con cerning this case is furnished by tho report of the committee of tho House to whom the bill was referred. There is nothing alleged in the report except that Demstor Doano, who was a Second Lieutenant in the company and regi ment named, died at Peck, Mich., on the 22d day of September, 1631, and that the deceased up to the time of his death supported hisfather, the claimant, who in now over 81 years of age incapable of manual labor and destitute of the means of support There is no intimation that the death of the son 10 years after the close of the war was caused, or in any way related to, his military service. While this case is proba bly one where the exorcise of generosity would be pleasant and most timely to the recipient, I cannot think that such a precedent should bo established." Saturday. Sept. 8. The Senate was not in session to-day. In the House tho retaliation bill was taken p, and speeches were made by Mr. White (N. Y.). Mr. Wilson (Minn.), Mr. Liud (Minn.), Mr. O'Neill (Mo.). Mr. Tarsney (Mich.), Mr. Cock ran (K. Y.),Mr. McAdoo(N. J.), Mr. McMil lan (Tenn.), Mr. Henderson (Iowa), Mr. Bryce (K. Y.land Mr. Cummings (N. Y.). The bill was read a third time and passed, and the House adjourned at 5:30 o'clock . m. Monday, Sept. 10. In the Senate, the House amendments reduc ing the amount of pension of tho widow of Gen. Kilpatrick from $100 to 75 per mouth were nou-concurrod in, and a committee of con fcrcticefordered. The conference report on the fortification bill was taken up aud passed, as was the con ference report on the Army appropriation bill. Mr. Morgan (Ala.) introduced a bill appro priating $276,619 to bo paid tho Chinese Min ister for citizens of China as full indemnity for all losses aud injuries sustained by them from citizens of the United States, and the subject occupied- the entire day's sessiou, the adjourn ment taking place at 5 o'clock p. ra. The House passed the conference report on the fortifications appropriation bill. The conference report on the sundry civil appropriation bill was taken up, tho pending amendments being that appropriating $250,000 for the purpose of investigating the extent to which the arid regions of the United States can be redeemed by irrigation, aud reserving, as the property of the United Statos, all the lands which may be designated for reservoirs aud catifils for irrigation. Tho amendment was discussed at length without any action being readied. The conference report on tho Army appropriation bill was adopted, aud the House adjourned. WASHINGTON GOSSIP, ' The Week's Doings at the Na tional Capital. ABOUT CONGRESSMEN. Hon. Julius C. Burrows, of Michigau.was re nominated for Congress by tho Republicans of tho Fourth District of that State last week. Mr. Burrows was born at Northeast, Pa. Ho received a common-school aud academic educa tion, studied law and was admitted to tho bar, and when elected to Congress had a largo aud growing parefcice. Ho was elected to the 43d, 4Gth and 47th Congresses; was appointed So licitor of tho Treasury Department by Presi dent Arthur, but declined the ofiico. He was a delegato-at-largo to tho National Republican Convention from Michigan in 1884. Ho was elected to the 49th and re-elected to tho 50th Congress as a Republican by a decisivo ma jority. In tho Spring of 18G2 ho raised a company and wa3 commissioned Captain in tho 17th Mich. This regiment was immediately ordered to tho Army of tho Potomac, and went to tho front, being attached to the Ninth Corps. Thoy were in the battles of South Mountain and An tietam, where thoy showed so much pluck as to earn the sobriquet of the " Stonewall Regi ment." The regiment was transferred to tho West after tho battle of Fredericksburg, and served during tho Vicksburg campaign with great gallantry. Capt. Burrows was always conspicuous for bravery and efficiency in every sphere of duty. Ho was one of six brothers, all of whom served in tho Union army aud made good records. Mr. Burrows has been an ardent advocate of pension and other legislation for tho benefit of the soldier element of tho country, and tho old veterans havo no better advocate in Congress than he. Ho is a good talker aud a ready de bater, and is a man whom everybody likes and admires. It is hoped that he will long con tinue in tho seat which ho fills so acceptably and ably. Hon. Jehu Bakor was renominated unani mously by the Republicans of the Eighteenth Illinois District on Sept. 5. Mr. Baker was born in Kentucky in 1822, received a common school education and then attended McKcn dree College, but did not graduate. Ho re ceived the honorary degrees of M. A. aud LL.D. from this college in 1858 and 1832 respect ively. He is the author of an annotated edi tion of Montesquieu's "Grandeur and Deca dence of the Romans." Ho is a lawyer by profession, and had a largo practice when elected to Congress. He was elected to tho 39th and 40th Con grosses, and also served as United States Min ister Resident to Venezuela from 1878 to 1835, being Consul-General for a time during tho closing part of this service. He was elected to the 50fch Congress over Col. Wm. H. Morrison, aud h.is been n hard-working, conscientious Congressman. Ho has made several speeches which show him to be well versed in statecraft. He is also an ardent advocate of pension legis lation, and is violently opposed to a reduction of the tariff until soldiers get their dues. COL. D. B. HENDERSON RENOMINATED. Tho Republicans of the Third District of Iowa have given another proof of their loyalty to the men who were loyi&to them in the hour of our country's peril, by rouominatiug this soldier, tried and true, to represent them for a fourth term in Congress. He was called by ac clamation, no other name being mentioned, and every County being represented. Co!. Henderson left ono foot in the grave when he marched with tho rest of the boys in blue to victory; but though maimed in body, there is nothing to mar the clear, far-reaching intellect that enables him to grapple any sub ject successfully ; the heart is all right, too, aud there is not a disloyal pulsation there when a comrade's interest is at stake. In throe terse adjectives Ben Butterworth describes him in a dispatch of congratuiations to tho convention : "There isn't a flaw in him. Brilliant ability, manly courage, spotless integrity." David B. Henderson had enjoyed his ma jority just six months when he enlisted as a privatajsoldifir in Co. C, 12th Iowa, he being at that time just 21 years aud six mouths or ags. Although the hills of Bonny Scotia witnessed his birth, he was brought here an infant, and imbibed American principle? with tho Ameri can air that fed his boyish breath till ho grew up a thorough American, with tho advantage of the Scotch brawn in his character, inherited from the land of Wm. Wallace. Ho went through tho war, and was mustered out at its close Colonel of tho 46th Iowa. Pretty good for a farmer boy, promoted for meritorious service alone. His course in Congress has been no loss bril liant, and ho is now ono of tho recognized leaders of the Republican sido of the House, where he never fails to raise his voice in de fense of the rights of the soldier and tho sol dier's dear ones, from which fact ho has won the name of "Soldier's Friend." Of the 11 Representatives from Iowa eight aro ex-soldiers of the Union and one of the re maining three was too young to enter the army when tho war broke out, which seems to prove that this energetic people arc not unmindful of past favors. GEN. EDWIN S. OSBOENE. Another Member, ono of the kind which old soldiers desire to see in Congress, was also re nominated by the Republicans of the Wilkes Barre District of Pennsylvania. Ho was elect ed to represent the Stato-at-largo in the 49th Congress, and was re-elected to the 50th Con gress by an overwhelming majority, receiving 415,100 against 307,551 for Stevenson, tho nomi nee of tho Democrats, and 30,000 votes for Palmer, the Prohibition caudidatc. Gen. Os borne enlisted as a private in tho 8th Pa. in April, 1801. no afterward raised a company and joined the 149th Pa. as Captain. Tho regi ment was made part of tho First Corp3, Army of the Potomac, and participated in all its cam paigns until after the buttle of Gettysburg, when it was transferred to tho Fifth Corp3, af ter which Gen. Osborne was promoted to tho rank of Major. Ho was three times wounded, and was brevettcd Lieutenant-Colonel, Col onel, and Brigadier-Genoral for gallant and meritorious conduct in battle. After tbo war he wa3 appointed Judgo-Ad-vocate, and was sent to Aadersonvillo and Macon, Ga., to investigate charges made of cruelty to Union soldiers by tho rebel authori ties. Ho gathered testimony, and preferred charges of murder against Wirz, who was tried by court-martial aud hanged in Washington. Gen. Osborno has been a warm .idvni!it r.r nil legislation for the veterans, making several speeches upon tho questions of tho duty of the Government to the men who pre served tho Nation. He is a prominent.G.A.E. man, having been tho Commander of tho De partment of Pennsylvania in 1883, and is quite likely to bo returned to tho House, as ho is very popular with ovory class of citizens throughout tho State, aud has been ono of tho best Repre sentatives in Congress. JUDGE ADVOCATES-GENEEAI,. Lieut.-Col. Horaco B. Burnbam, Deputy Judge Advocate-General, U. S. A., reached tho age of G4 years last Monday, Sept. 10, and was duly placed on the retired list under tho same law that removed Gen. Sherman from active command. He entered tho service Oct 31, 1801, as Lieutenant-Colonel of the 07th Pa., aud held tho samo rank for exactly three years, and when mustered out was appointed the samo day Major and Judge Advocate. In 18(57 ho was transferred to the Regular Army with tho samo rank and position, and was promoted to his present Tank in July, 1881, since which tirao he has been serving at San Francisco at head quarters of the Military Division of the Pacific. iic iius oi late years established Jus legal resi dence on tho James River, near Richmond, whore he owns a largo plantation. This retirement promotes Col. Herbert Pol ham Curtis, who served from Now Years, 18G2, to July, 18G5, as Lieutenant aud Captain of tho 1st Mass. Cav., and leaves a Vacancy in the rank of Major and Judge Adocate for President Cleveland to fill. This vacancy creates a vory considerable anxiety to many officers in the Army, for many of tho Jong-service lino officers want tho billet badly, aud yet fear that tho President may exorcise his prerogative of selecting a lawyer from civil life for tho appointmcut. For many years the only staff appointment in tho Army open to civil iaus(oxccpt, of course, tho Assistant Surgeons) was in the Pay Depart ment (Majors and Paymasters). During Presi dent Arthur's Administration the Armv laws woro so amended that not only tho rank of Major in thoJudgo-Advocate-Gonoral's Depart ment was opened to civil appointments, but tho Chief Executive was also authorized to go out side of thesorvico to'appoint civilians to tho rank of Captain in both tho Quartermaster's and tho Subsistence Departments. Sinco that timo but ono vacancy occurred aa Judgo Advocate, and Mr. Cleveland appointed a vet eran of 30-years' service, noarly six of which had been served in tho ranks. In tho Quar termaster's Department two out of fivo vacan cies since then havo gono to civil life (ono of them having never seou'a day's service beforo), aud both of tho two appointed in tho Subsist ence Department were young civilians who had resigned from tho Army'not long after leaving West Point. Capt. Gcorgo B. Davis, 5th U. S. Cav., who was a veteran of tho war and graduated at West Point aftorward, is ono of tho applicants for appointment as Judge Advocate, as is also Capt. Patrick Henry Ray, 8th U. S. Inf., who served in the volunteers from 18G1 to 38GG. There aro other strong candidates in tho Army, but nono that I now remember aro veterans. COL. rETEIt C. HAINS. Lieut.-Col. Poter C. Hains, U. S. Corps of Engineers, who is in charge of tho Potomac Flats improvement hero and other public works, is at West Point for a couplo of weeks, visiting old Army friends there. Ho served a year in tho 2d U. S. Art. after graduating in 18GJ, and distinguished himself so well on tho Peninsular campaign that ho was brevettcd Captain for Hauover Courthouse. When ho was trans ferred to the Engineers in 18G3 he was sent to Gen. Grant's staff, and won tho brevet of Major for gallantry during tho sicgo of Vicksburg. His eldest son, Mr. Thornton Jenkins Hains, (named for his grandfather, Rear-Admiral Thornton A. Jenkins, U. S. Navy,) is on duty at Fort Monroo in charge of his father's office there in connection with tho construction of tho immense iron pier now building thoro un der Col. naius. Ono of tho sou3 of Maj.-Gon. Henry J. Hunt, tho old Chief of Artillory of tho Army of tho Potomac, is Chief Clerk in Col. Haius's office in Washington. 3IAJ. DICKEY'S B.ETIKE3IENT. Tho Retiring Board at Omaha, of which Gen. John R. Brooko is President, has adjourned its meeting until Oct. 18, and Maj. Cbas. J. Dickey, 8th U. S. Inf., whoso caso tho Board had under consideration, has been ordered back to his post at Fort Robinson, Nob., to await its re assembling. It is probable that President Cleveland will eventually bo called upon to decido whether Maj. Dickey will be put upon tho Army retired list or wholly retired from sorvico with a year's pay. ABOUT PEOPLE. Col. Henry do B. Clay, of Newport Nows,Va., a late Commander of tho Department of Vir ginia, G.A.E., of whom wc mentioned in last week's issue that he was a candidate for tho Republican nomination to Congress in the Sec ond (Va.) District, it appears on tho 27th ult. wrote a letter to Capt. Wm. Lackey, of York town, Va., declining, for satisfactory reasons, to allow his name to go beforo tho convention. Col. Clay's heart is with tho old soldiers and thoir interests. Tho veterans of tho lato war could havo no better advocate in Congress than Col. Clay. VETEP.ANS IN THE CITY. Capt. Sherman A. Johnson, 123d Ohio, who was for years in tho Treasury, ranging in rank from a first-class clerk when ho left tho army in 18G5 to Librarian of tho Department, is in tho city again for a few days. After Capt. Johnson left tho civil service because ho was an awfully offensive partisan, ho invested in real estate long enough' to sell out at a good figure, and then "wont West" to St. Paul. There good fortune chased up and overtook him again, and now ho is glad that ho waB bounced from Undo Sam's service. Dr. 1L E. Waito,f tho 17th Conn., was in the city during tho past week. Tho Doctor was a gallant soldier during the war, and is now ono of tho foremost medical electricians of Now York city. Rear-Admiral Bancroft Ghorardi, now com manding the New York Navy Yard, was horo last week on official business connected with fitting out the new steel cruisers at his station to bo sent to our fleets abroad. During nearly all of the war ho was in command of vessels on tho blockade, and in tho famous fight of Mobile Bay in 18G1 ho commanded tho gunboat Port Royal under Farmgut, whilo ranking as a Lieutenant-Commander. Ho reached his pres ent rank in August, 1887, and does not go on the retired list until November, 1891, when ho roaches 02 years of ag. Comrade W. A. Clark, of Newark, N. J., of the old 20th N. Y. Militia, and then of tho 7th H. A., in whose ranks he lost his right arm at Cold Harbor. Comrade Clark and wife stopped over at the Capital on tho way to Columbus. Col. Robert P. Hughes, In3pector-Genoral, U. S. Army, arrived hero last week from Now Haven, to act temporarily as Senior Inspector General during tho severe illness of Brig-Gen. Roger Jones. Col. Hughes served in tho ranks of tho 12th Pa. three months in 1801, and then as Lieutenant and Captain in the 85th Pa., in the Tenth Corp3, until ho was mustered out to' be come Lieutenant-Colonel of the 199th Pa. The latter regiment also went to the same brigade and division of tho Tenth Corp3 in which tho 85th Pa. had served, so that almost all of Col. Hughes's whole voluuteer service 'was undor Gen. Alfred II. Terry. When theRegular Army was increased in 18GG ho was made Captain, 18th U. S. Inf., but on the reorganization in 1870 he was transferred to tho 3d Inf. For nearly 11 years he was an Aid-de-Camp to Gen. Terry, during the trying times of Reconstruction days in tho South aud tho Indian wars on the frontier. His long an eminently faithful service was somewhat rewarded at last, for in Febcruary. 1835, ho was appointed Major and Inspector-General, and in less than a mouth later wa3 promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel when Gen. Absalom Baird was promoted to Colonel on the retirement of Gen. Sackott. He was promoted to Colonel in July last to succeed Gen. Jones, who was made Senior Inspector-General. And yet with all this servico ho was only 49 years of ago last April. Ho Universal Remedy ha3 yet been discovered ; but, as at least four-fifths of human diseases have their source in Impure Blood, a medicine which restores that fluid from a de praved to a healthy condition comes aa near being a universal euro as any that can be produced. Ayor's Sarsapurilla affects tho blood in each stage of ita formation, and is, therefore, adapted to a greater variety of complaints than any other known medicine. Boils and Carbuncle s, which defy ordinary treatment, yield to Ayer's Sarsaparilla after a comparative ly brief trial. Mr. C. K, Murray, of Charlottesville, Va., writes that for years he was af flicted with boils -Yliiuh caused him much suffering. TheSo were succeeded by carbuncles, of which ho had several at ono time. He then began the use of Ayer's S(irsaparilla,Hand after taking three bottles, tho .carbuncles disap peared, and for six years he has not had even a pimple. ' That insidioifa disfeaso, Scrofula, is tho fruitful causes of jinnumerable com plaints, CousumptiOD. being only one of many equally fatal. Eruptions, ulcers, sore eyes, glaudulau swellings, weak and wasted mugle.s,ia capricious appe tite, and tho lik.e; are pretty sure indi cations of a scrofulous taint in the system. Many otherwise beautiful faces are disfigured by pimples, eruptions, and unsightly blotches, -which ariso from impure blood, showing the need of Ayer's Sarsaparilla to remedy the evil. All sufferers from blood disorders should give Ayer's Sarsaparilla a fair trial, avoiding all powders, ointments, and washes, and especially cheap and worthless compounds, which not only fail to effect a euro, but more frequently aggravate and confirm the diseases they are fraudulently advertised to remedy. arsaparii PEErABED BY Dr. J. C. Ayer & Co., Loweil, Mass, Bold by all Druggists. Price $1; eix bottlca, $5. Ayer's S THE ENCAMPMENT. The Largest Gatlioring liver mid by the G.A.B. Editorial Correspondence Nationai, Tkibcsk. Colusibtjs, 0 Sopt. 9, 1833. Never has tho staid little city of Columbus nover has any city on tho continent staid or frivolous, big or little seen such a swelling, sweeping tido of humanity flowing down upon her from every point of tho compass as sho is seeing. If wo call it a tide, it must bo one of tho Bay of Faudy kind an unparalleled, over whelming insweep that swirls and sways over everything. Even tho great gathering of tho volunteers at tho Bnckeyo Capital when tho war clarion sounded in 18G1 soem small by comparison, for they camo in by tens of thousands, and tho 250,000 men whom Ohio sent to the front woro four years in arriving. If all re ports aro to bo bolioved fully that number will gathor hero inside of three days. Tho esti mates of tho incoming guests swell hour by hour. It is now alleged by those claiming to know that 225,000 railroad tickets aro alroady reported as sold, and tho endhardly tho be giniug of the end is not yet. Eighty car-loads wero reported at Chicago this morning, and from Cincinnati, Pittsburg, Indianapolis, Clove land and elsowhero como similar reports. The managers of the local arrangements aro enthusiastic as to tho prospects, and calmly confident as to thoir ability to tako care of all who come, even if the highest reports be justi fied. "Wo have tent capacity for 70,000 mon," said Capt. A. E. Leo, tho Secretary of tho Local Committee, to-day, "and this is only the bo ginning. Our Room Committee reported last night that they had still 13,000 beds unas signcd, and if tho necessity comes wo can double or treble our accommodations. Wo havo fully appreciated tho magnitudo of the occasion, and havo worked hard, comprehen sively and intelligently, to prepare for it." From what I can see ho is entirely right. Thoy have a largo number of active, enterpris ing business mon in Columbus. The entire com munity is permeated with this spirit. They all feel that the 22d National Encampment i3 to bo one of the biggest occasions in tho history of their city, and that its success will be an im mense advertisement for their city. Like all bustling, progressive Westerners thoy feel that a big advertisement is one of tho choicest bles sings that can befall thoir city, and they all unite in working for it. Therefore they accomplish more than a city several times thoir size could whore only a portion of tho citizens took an active interest in tho matter. Substan tially every building in tho city is in some way made available or ready to bo made available for tho Encampment. Private houses, from tho best to tho poorest, accom modate guests, warehouses arc converted into lodgiug-houses and irapromtu restaurants, and the great asylums for tho deaf and dumb, blind, imbecile and insane, the State Capitol and the public offices aro all devoted in somo way to tho purposes of tho Encampment. In short, the city is given up to it with a thorough ness never even approached by any other placo in which tho Encampment has met. Only tho penitentiary and tho police stations havo been left out of the calculation, and doubtless those will also be utilized if occasion requires. So far as I can see nothing has been neglect ed which will contribute in the largestsensc to the entire success of tho Encampment, and if tho weather turns out to bo as good as hoped for, tho 22d Encampment will bo the largest over held, or that over will bo hold, aud the most satisfactory in the way of bringing about Reunions of the greatest number of comrades. The decorations aro profuse, and give a bril liant appearance to tho city, though thoy aro not so elaborate and expensive as those at St. Louis and San Francisco. Everybody i3 in the highest spirits. The weather is delightful, tho accommodations sub stantial and ample, and so far not a cloud as largo as a inau's hand has developed anywhere. ENCAMPMENT NOTES. Gov. J. B. Foraker ha3 returned badly used up from Indiana, having G5 engagements at Reunions and Campfires for the week, all of which he expects to fill. Gen. W. T. Sherman wont from the Army of tho Tennessee Reunion at Toledo to his early home at Lancaster, guest of Mrs. Gen. Reese, hi3si3ter. Ho was on tho ground early Mon day morning, and will give the entire week to tho hoys. Gen. Sherman ia losing his zest for social episodes, and says plainly that ho prefers to confine himsolf strictly to soldier gatherings. Corp'l Tanner will give but partof tho week to tho Encampment, leaving on Thursday for Indiauapolis, thence to California. Mrs. Tan ner accompanies him this year. Up to Saturday night quarters had been as signed to 57,000 in tho camps, besides assign ments at upwards of 70 halls, aggregating 28, 000, besides some 12,000 in private quarters : a total of 97,000. The arrangements of the Grand Council, Col. Patton, Chairman, havo been most admirable. Open-handed hospitality is tho order of tho day. Prominent citizens generally havo open ed their homes. Col. Patton entertains 50 at his homo. Camp quarters aro centrally located and -well equipped. A magnificent male chorus has been thoroughly drilled and divided up for duty for tho week. Upwards of 300 Reunions will be held at various points. ENCAMPMENT BADGES. Tho G.A.R. souvenir badge is of unique de sign. Suspended from a bar is a bronzo buck eyo in the form of a locket, and duly inscribed "G.A.R." On opening the locket thore is re vealed on ono sido an exquisite medallion por trait of Gen. Grant; on the other sido "22d Annual Encampment, G.A.R., Columbus, 0., 1888." The souvenir badge of tho W.R.C. is a bronze medallion, bearing on one side a portrait of Kate B.Sherwood, Past Natioual President; on the other tho inscription, " VI National Con vention, W.R.C, Columbus, 0., 1888." From the bar pin is suspended a real buckeye Many unique emblems aro seen. Buckley Post, No. 12, Akron, have a littlo souvonir in the shape of a bucket of hard rubber, inscribed in gilt. The Sons of Voterans from tho samo place havo a miniaturo jug susponded from a red, white and blue ribbon. The Ohio delegation's badge is highly artis tic. On white satin, exquisitely painted, is a buckeye spray above a gipsy camp-kettle, hung over glowing coals. SONS OP VETERANS. The Ohio Sons of Veterans aro coming rap idly to tho front, and 2,000 of them aro iu camp. Thoy opened tho week at the big tent with a stirring program Monday evening and a Tues day parade, aud arc brimming over with tho spirit of '61. It was a pretty sight to seo Camp 27, Akrou, O., G5 strong, handsomely uniformed aud armed with Winchester 17-repeaters, march into Camp Hayden Sunday evening, headed by a drum corps of 11. The S. of V.'s escorted 15 of tho Ladies' Aid Society iu gallant stylo. Buckley Post aud Corps camo in at tho same timo, somo GOO in all. The S. of V.'s, Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans, came over on Tuesday morning and spent the day. They are a fine lot of young lads aud full of promise. . To Succeed Col. 31iko Sheridan. Lieut.-Col. Thomas M. Vincent has been or dered from the Headquarters of the Department of Dakota to tho Headquarters of tho Army at Washington. This transfer will result in Col. Vincent succeeding Col. Mike Sheridan, who will probably go to Chicago. No one has yet been selected to succeed Col.'Wincent at St. Paul, but tho selection will probably bo made within a fow days. It is not yot impossible that Col. Vincent's change of base may havo somo significance in connection with tho re tirement of Adj't-Gen. Drum, which takes placo next May. Col. Chauncoy McKcovcr has been brought hero rccuntly from tho Pacific Coast, and this latest change bring3 together hero the three men from among whom Gen. Drum's successor will probably bo selected. These aro Col. John C. Keltou, located hero as Assistant to tho Adjutant-General, McKeover and Vincent. Itseems to bo generally conceded, however, that Col. Kolton, who is an excellent officer and directly in the lino of promotion, will bo solccted.
