[Correspondence of the Globe. |
Montevideo, Minn., Oct. 27, 18S0.— The
Democratic rally which was advertised for to
night came off last night. The speaker, Hon.
J. N. Castle, having been put back by the

Although we had bat a few hoars to notify the
citizene of the change, and the roada to town
nearly bottomless the large hall was packed
with attentive listeners. Mr. Castle made an
able address, and held bis audience spell
bound for two and a half hours. He »poke the
undeniable truth, backed up by evidence and

it was immense, mild Republicans say it was
a good and telling speech, and hot headed ones

To the Editor of the Globe.
Pipe Stone, Minn.. Oct. 27.—As tha cam
paign progresses in the First Congressional
district we have more assurance each day of
Democratic success, and we feel confident if
our friends do their wholo duty from now un
til the close of the polls next Tuesday, Mr.
Wells will represent us in the next Congress.
One thing has been proven, that Mr. Dunnell
is making a desperate struggle and has used
money without stint, buying all voters for
sale ill the Wells and Ward ranks.
We were treated to a new phase in politics
last evening in the person of Wm. Sawyer, of
Owatonna, heretofore an ardent Democrat,
speaking for Mr. Dunnell. He
shook the bloody shirt with equal vim as
bis master, but as a trap to catch
voters he was a poor tool. So completely dis
gusted was our postmaster, D. £. Sweet, that
at the close of his disgraceful harangue he
boldly arose and proposed three cheers for
Winfield 8. Hancock. To Mr. Sweet the Dem
ocrats of Pipestone county extends a cordial
welcome. He is a valuable acquisition, as he
is an able speaker and caustic writer. R. W.
Ware, postmaster of Rock, is also fate in the
Democratic fold and has done valuable woik
during the present canvass. The last pur
chase made by Mr. Dunnell is Dr. Bert Robin -
son, of Alden, Freeborn county, who was a
delegate in the last Democratic convention of
Freeborn county and was elected delegate to
onr convention at Owatonna, which nominated
Mr. Wells. It is proposed by our Democrats
to have him tell what has caused such a radical

arrest of Philip: "The Republicans have ar
rested Phiip for criminal libel in writing an
article in the Truth and not lor forging Gar

THE FBOCEEDINGS IN COCBT.
New Yobe, Oct. 28.—The proceedings in the
case of Ken ward Philip, charged with malicious
libel upon Gen. Garfield,* attracted a large
crowd to the general term room of the supreme
court this morning. Judge Davis occupied the
bench and there was a full array of
counsel on both sides. Assistant
District Attorney Bel), for the people,
called as the first witness Col. A. F. Rockwell,
United States army, Washington. He testified
that be knew Gen. Garfield twenty-seven years;
was bis classmate and graduated with him at
college. In his extensirc correspondence with
Garfield more thau one thousand letters had
passed betweea them. Witness was therefore
perfectly familiar with Garfield's handwriting.
A lithograph was handed witness and identi
fied by him as a copy of a letter received by
him in November from Ge .. Garfield.
Assistant Attorney Bell asked counsel for de
fense if they had the original Chinese letter.
Counsel stated tbat they did not propose to
answer tbat question at present. A photograph
of the letter in a gilt frame was hand ed
by the defense. Mr. Bell declined to receive
this and again called for the original, in order
that he might examine Col. Rockwell in re
gard to it. Counsel for Philip stated that the
original letter was not in possession of their
client, but was held by Mr. Hart, publisher of
Truth. The latter was in court, and was called
t > the witness stand.
Mr. Hart said he had not the original Morey
letter with him. It was in possession of a
friend, and he declined to give his name.
Witness could not procure the letter, as the
friend was out of town. Mr. Bell demanded
the name of the party to whom the letter had
been delivered. Mr. Hart again refused to
answer. The c jurt ordered him to answer,
but he again respectfully declined. Judge
Dpvis ordered him in coatempt of court and
he was handed over to the custody of the po
Capt. W. Howe, counsel of the defense,
made a motion to purge Col. Hart from con
tempt, saying Col. Hart was willing to pro
dace the letter, but that he wanted a guarantee
that the letter shoul.i be returned to him. Mr.
Howe explained that he didn't mean t > 6ay the
court would keep the letter, but that it might
pass into sab >rdiuate hinds and be lost. Con
tinuing, Mr. Howe said if the letter were to
remain in custody of Judge Davis Col. Hart
was willing to produce. Judge Davis said the
letter would remain in his custody. On mo
tion Col. Hart was allowed three hours to go
with counsel and procure the letter. Col.
Hart made a statement that he was willing to
produce the letter, but that he wanted a guar
antee that it would be returned to him or else
remain in custody of Judge Davis. The propo
sition was agreed to and Hart and counsel then
left to cet the letter.
Col. Rockwell was recalled and asked as to
the identity of the letter written by Jas. A.
Garfield to Marshall Jewell, denying the
authenticity of the Mcrey letter. He testified
that Garfield's letter to Jewell was genuine.
Question by Mr. Bell: Look at the copy of
newspaper called Truth, and a!so the copy
dated the 20th. Look at the the lithgorapbic
copy of the letter purporting to be sinned
by Jas. A. Garfield, and state if in your
judgment it is in Garfield's writing.
Mr. Brooks, for the defense, objected to the
question as the comparison was made with a
photograph and not with tho original which
would be produced, and Judge Davis ruled that
the evidence was premature, as no proof bad
been given that a fuc simile was a photographic
copy, and that the prisoner had not as yet been
connected with it.
Recess was then taken.
A SUBFCEXA FOB (JABFIELD.
New Yobk, Oct. 28.—1n the Philip case,
cjunsel for Hart has prepared a subposaa di
rected to Jag. A. Garfield, commanding him to
appear and testify at the investigation this
afternoon. Counsel claims that General Gar
field is at the Windsor hotel. New York, not
The court reassembled at 2:30. At 7 minutes
to 3 o'clock Mr. Hart and counsel entered the
court room. Hart apologized for detaining
the court, saying he bad been delayed by an in
dictment in the State court for libel on com
plaint of Marcus Cicero Stanley. Hart then
to >k the witness stand and produced the letter.
Bell asked for the envelope. Hart said be
was told to bring the letter only. It would
take five hours to get the envelope.
Mr. Hart said he kept the envelope for his
protection, as he was informed that an order of
arrest had been granted against him in a suit
instigated by Marcus C. Stanley and George
Wilkes, which be characterized as dastardly.
Judge Davis told him that while he was a wit
ness he Would not be interfered with. Hart
thereupon promised to produce the envelope
Col. A. A. Rockwell was recalled. He testi
fied that he purchased a copy of the Washing
ton Gazette when it first published a fac-simile
copy of the Morey letter and compared it with
letters in bis possession received
from Qarfield, and then thought
it a forgery. He communicated wivh
Gen. Oar field: on the telegraphic request of
Henry £. Rnox, came to this city, and sub
mitted to Col. Bliss, a dozen letters he had
received from Gen. Garfield, one of which was
chosen to compare the exhibits and fan simile
oopies of the Morey letter with. The letter waa
chosen by Blisp, but he did not know it wan
picked out because it resembled the letter of
denial from Gartield to Marshall Jewett; but
thought it was chosea because it was nearest to
it in date. When shown the Morey letter ho
examined closely and did not think it was
Garfield's writing. He thought there was
some resemblance. On a cross examination
he stated that he was an
assistant quartermaster in the army, es
pecially detailed to take charge of the national
cemeteries; that his present appointment was
due to Gen. Garlield's interest in him—he hav
ing been a classmate of his and that he was
greatly indebted to him.
Albert Daggett, ex-sheriff of Kings county,
testified that he knew Philip for seven years
and knew his handwriting. On looking at tbe
manuscript copy of an article published ia the
Truth, entitled "Lying and Sticking to It,"
he said it was in Philip's handwriting, and on
comparing it with the Morey letter he thought
they were in the same hand wring. He was a
strong Republican and had large sums wagered
on G ir fie Id's election.
Jas. McDermott testified he knew Philip in
timately and was familiar with his handwrit
ing. On comparing the Morey letter with the
exhibits be believed them to be the same. He
admitted having been indicted for a felonious
assault but not convicted; and stated tbat
while a reporter on a Brooklyn journal be had
been sued for $50,000 damages for a libel by
Henry C. Bowen, the suit ari3inz out of the
Charles Hoffman testified that he is em
ployed by Barony and photographed the fac
simile copies from the original, which was giv
en to Mr. Sarony by Mr. Hart.
Daniel T. Ames, an expert,
was called. He compared the fac simile copy
with exhibits written by Philip, and with one
of Garfield's letters, and declared the crossing
of the t"s and the general formation of the
loops, pen shades, spacing and general slope
and f c >pc are more characteristic of the writ
ing in the exhibits than in Garfield's letter.
He stated that the writing in the exhibits and
the Morey letter were the same. He was cross
examined as to other trials in which he had been
a witness, and cross-examination will be con
cluded to-morrow morning, to which time the
Marshal' Jewell Proved to be a Liar.

Allen D. McCabe, being duly sworn, deposes

board if the same vessel in the steerage ab jut
a hundred rough looking fellows, who, accord

One Radical Forgery Exposed,
Louisville, Ky., Oct. 27.—Newspaper
readers will remember the recent publication
of an alleged letter headed "A Visit to Jeff
Davis," "A Warm Greeting from His Southern
Sympathizers," "How the Lee Association
Visited Davis at Beuvoir," "Hiß
Speech in Acknowledgment," "The
Bonny Flag Shall Raise Again."
It was credited to the Boston Transcript as a
clipping by its correspondent from some ob
scure paper in Maine. No name was signed
to the letter. The Courier Journal addressed
a letter of inquiry to Mr. Davis and has
received a communication in regard to the
publication, from which the following extract
The L/:e Association is a purely charitable
society, organized for the purpose of supplying
in some measure the absence of the pensions
for confederate soldiers, to provide for his,
needs when sick and give him decent burial
when dead. The majority of its members are
women. It has no military organization, nor
has it any political significance or objects
whatever. "Annually, on January 19th, Gen.
Lee* birthday, it gives a banquet, to which
prominent representatives of the army and
navy or the United States have invariably been
invited, and always come. The army of the
United State?, and navy of the United States,
are regular, toasts, always responded to by
these gentlemen with the cordi<y of true sol
diers. The annual excursion to New Orleans
is solely and only for raising money in order
to carry out the charity the association has in
view. Last April the association availed it
self of Mr. Davis' convenient residence, en
route to New -Orleans, to pay him a passing
tribute of respect on account of past associ
ations, and sympathy on account of the death
of his only son at Memphis of yellow fever.
The few remarks which I addressed to them on
that occasion were entirely of that tenor. There
is scarcely a single sentiment attributed to me
in the article in question to which I gave utter
ance. Though the cause which so enlisted our
hearts be lost, and our allegiance else
where due and fully given, yet have
we not lost our respect for the manhood we
displayed in that struggle or for the distin
guished man who was its exponent. Surely
there is no disloyalty'in this and it seems very
strange to us that so many Northern people fail
to appreciate this honorable sentiment. Mr.
Davis fully underston d the character of the
visit and his remarks were in keeping with it,
and were not such as are set down in the ac
count of the visit. It is true that Father Ryan
was called out and responded very briefly in a
humorous vein, chiefly complimentary to the
dignified retirement of Mr. Davis as compared
t • the "swinging around the circle"indulged by
same other men of prominence. The whole
visit was a retrospect and cast no look into the
future. We are indignant that this pleasant
episodo of our t rip shonld at this late day be
dragged forward and dressed as a "Southern
outrage." This distorted account of it could
only be the production of ingenious malice or ot
some one who strangely misconceived the
whole affair. (Signed) Stephen Cbom.
A Federalist Ruling by Judne Drummond.
Chicago, Oct. 28.—The case of United States
Superviser Fred. Geisler, arrested at a place
of registration yesterday, by a city policeman,
was before Judge Drummoi;d in the United
States circuit court this morning. Judge
Drummond reserved his decision as to the faot
whether the supervisor was in discharge of his
duty when arrested till next Saturday, when
the caec will be fully argued before him. He
laid down the law on the general subject in
volved, however, and then released Geisler
without bail. He held tbat the United States
laws appointing and regulating the action of
supervisors at an election for Representatives
in Congress are in full force
and binding upon all State and city officials,
no matter whether such election be held under
State laws or not. Tbat a supervisor in dis
charge of his duty under these laws cannot be
interfered with by any State or city officer,
and that if a supervisor should be so arrested
while in performance, as he claimed, of his
duty under these laws, then the federal courts
had the right to inquire into the facts and to
pass judgment on them. Much interest is
manifested in this decision, as it is considered
a te-t which will determine the status of the
supervisors in the coming election hero.
Another Political Libel Suit.

D. 8. Kiel, publs'ie b of fcha Fort Wayne Ga
zette, (Republican >. were arrested to-day,
charged with criminal libel, upou the affidavit
of C. Hettler. The alleged libel is in a shape
of a communication to the Gazette, charging
upon Hettler, chairmau, and five other mem
bers of the Democratic committee of Allen
county, the forgery of a petition to Col. Dud
ley, United States marshal, requesting the ap
pointment of supervisors of election, and sign
ed by Republican citizens. The article
severely handleß the commit
tee, applying to them the epithet
of "forgers" and "thieves" Hettler and the
committee repudiate ihe assertion of the
Gazette correspondent. The Kiels signed a
bail bond in two hundred dollars each, and
were released upon their own recognizance.
Hettler and the others say the Messrs. Kiel will
also be proceeded against in the civil courts
for damages, and the Eiels retort by expressing
their determination to pat the alleged forgers
of the petition through.
The fatal Letter.
| Washington Gor. Cincinnati Enquirer.)
Garfield'e "Heathen Chinee letter" has com
pletely superseded all the other issues of the
canvass. His denial is not weighed by any
body inclined to be dispassionate, as an argu
ment pro or con. The city p^tmaster here,
Col. Aiuger, a bright and shining lisjht of the
bread and butter brigade, is ont in a card de
nying the genuineness of the date and cancel
lation stam pa on the envelope. On the other
hand, the clerks of the postoffioa of the House
of Representatives, who have numbers of Gar
lifld's signatures in their possession, have no
doubt but that it his letter.
His ignatures vary in some respects, but in
all of them he writes J. A. G. without a break.
He then writes the balance of his name with
out a break. The use of the expression, "I
take it," is one of Garfield'B pet phrases. The
word "conserved" is exactly the kind of high
flown diction ho employs in debate. The
word "Companys," which he spells with a
"y" in this letter, so far from being an argu
ment against the genuineness, is the strongest
possible argument in its favor. Any
one forging such a letter would have
been careful to speli every word correctly, and
also to pnt the dot over the "i" in Garfield's
name in the riybt place. The misplacing of
the dot of the "i" is just one of those things
that would happen to a member of Congress
writing in a hurry. The spelling of the word
•'companys" with a "y" is exactly the way in
which Mr. Garfield spells the word. That he
misspells other words is shown by' the New
York World to-day.
The general tone of the letter indicates thai
it was written by a man who, as shown by his
recent interview in the Cleveland Leader, is in
favor of admitting the regular Chinese in any
numbers, and who dashed eff, in a brief and
condensed form, bis reasons for resisting meas
ures of restriction. Had one been preparing a
spurious letter, he would have written one of
greater length. The structure of the sentences,
the use of high sounding and grand words where
simpler ones would answer, all mark the letter
as indisputably that of Gen. Garfield.
The rumor here is that General Butler fur
nished the letter for publication. If this be
so, Butler will undoubtedly prove it; for be
seldom does any thing with his eyes shut, and
never makes a move in a personal senee
against an adversary unless he ia fortified at
Regulators of the Popular Will.

New Yobk, Oct. 27.—The tribunal conven

church of the Holy Trinity. The assemblage
was large. Bight Rev. Bishop Smith, of Ken

ers were read by Bight Bey. Bishop Do Wolf
Haier, of central Pennsylvania, Assistant Bish
op Ly man, of North Oarolina, reading the les
sons. The presiding bishop then read the pas
toral letter of the house of
bishops. In concluding the bish
ops repeat the councils and cautions given
in former pastoral letters against extravagance
in living, impatience of any restraint upon
self-indulgence, passionate fondnesß for amuse
ment of an exciting or corrupt character, and
the increasing depecration of the Lord's day,
commonly called Sunday. In addressing them
selves particularly to the clergy and candidates
for orders, the letter says: "Let no ambition
for display of learning, or desire to be thought
original and large minded, draw you away from
the discharge of your high and glorious errand
as God's cmbassadors, sent to seek men. in
Christ's name, to be reconciled to God."
Bishop Smith pronounced the benediction.

ISpeclal Telegram to the Glob*.]
Lake City, Oct. 28.—Probably the most
shocking tragedy ever committed in Whbashaw
county, was that of the shooting of Mrs. Lowe
and her little son by the husband and father,
Robert Lowe, a brief mentioa of which was
made in the Globk this morning. Mrs.
Lowe, the murdered woman, waa married to
Lowe in December, 1876, being at the time of
her marriage a widow, her first husband, Alex.
Oray, dying about six years before, leaving
his widow with a family of four children.
The first year of her marriage with Lowe waa
marked with the usual degree of hap
piness pertaining to such events
but as the children by the first husband in
creased in age and strength, the tyrant hus
band began imposing burdensome tasks upon
them and otherwise maltreating them, even
threatening to shoot them if they refused to
obey him. From this, matters grew worse, un
til Mrs. Lowe refused to live with Lowe any
longer, and in August last he started out west,
and Mrs. Lowe immediately sued for a divorce*
A few days &go Lowe returned to this city and
it was agreed between the unhappy couple to
sign articles of separation without resulting to
the courts for an adjustment
of their domestic troubles. They dined to
gethcr yesterday noon, Lowe in the meantime
writing several letters, among the number one
to his brother, giving him all his property,
which consisted of a good farm, stock, etc.,
saying that all he wanted was a decent burial.
Having settled his worldly affairs to his satis
faction, Lowe deliberately drew bis revolver
and shot his wife twice, once through the
heart, and the other shot taking effect in the
side of her head, killing her almost instantly.
He then turned around and shot the little boy,
firing two shots tbroagh his head, and
then went down in the field, where
his brother-in-law was busking corn, telling
him what he had done, remarking also that if
he would follow him down into the ravine he
would also find him dead. His brother-in-law
tried to stop him, but he broke away from him
and ran down into the ravine, about a mile
away, where he was followed shortly by a party
of his neighbors, and where the dead body of
the unfortunate man was found. There is bat
one theory advanced us to the cause of the
murder, and that is that the man was insane.
The coroner was immediately summoned, bnt,
as it was not thought necessary to bold in in
quest, the murderer and murdered were all
buried this afternoon, thus closing the most
shocking tragedy ever known to this commn

Chicago, Oct. 28.—Special cabled a penny

here opened firm and higher, and people having

of Eoalpers were watobing to catch any one buy

which means to raise tho price on him. When
the needy buyers were pretty well filled np
there was a lull of about half an hour, when
hardly anything was done, although the ring
was fall to suffocation, and
a cat could not watch a

pal scalpers watch everybody who possibly
