ST. PAUL, MONDAY, SEPT. 26, 1881.
It should not be forgotten in the exercises
to-day, that it is proposed to build a splendid
monument over the grave of the late President
by one dollar subscriptions. Every town in
the country will desire to have an interest in
that monument. It will be the people's
W. H. Vandkrbilt and his son, Cornelius
Vanderbilt, are among the $5,000 contributors
to the Mrs. Garfield fund. Vanderbilt had
previously declined on the ground
that it was improper to do so while the Presi
dent was living. The purse strings can now
open freely as there arc no hampering restric
tions. ___________
Waseca and Fillmore counties have resolved
in their Republican convention that Gov.
Pillsbury did a very improper thing in calling
an extra session of the legislature. A good
many other conventions have barely escaped
doing the same thing. The time will proba
bly come when these conventions will be
ashamed of their work, but it is nevertheless
very lucky for Pillsbury that he is not a can
didate for re-election. He could not now se
cure it if he would.
It requires 155 votes to nominate in the
Republican State convention. The Dispatch
claims 136 for Hubbard and more coming,
while the Pioneer Press concedes Hubbard
less than forty and counts eighty-six as posi
tively against him. Thejying of the P. P. is
so apparent that its figures have no value
whatever. The Dispatch undoubtedly exag
gerates but as the Globe views it when all
the conventions are held, Gen. Hubbard will
probably have 125 to 130 votes. Whether he
can win with even this large beginning
depends upon the combinations. The combi
nation will be game, which will win on Mon
day, and they are as doubtful at this meeting
s a game of chance.
On the morning that the Globe announced
the death of the President it also contained the
call of Gov. Pillsbury for an extra session of
the legislature. In noting in that issue the
results likely to follow the two events named,
the Globe said:
The probabilities are that in addition to set
tling the bond question Secretary Windom
will be elected Senator. It is almost certain
that w ith the accession of Arthur to the Pres
idency Mr. Windom will resign his cabinet
ixtsition and an Ens>tern man will be selected
for the Treasury Under such circumstanefF
it would be in accordance with the political
luck which has followed Windom for twenty
years, to be again chosen toH,he Senate for
the unexpired term which he resigned to ac
cept a position in the cabinet of the murdered
The Gdobe records its prediction to that
Associated Press telegrams from Washißg
ton Saturday night stated that Mr. Windom
would undoubtedly be speedily supplanted,
and that he had expressed himself ready to
retire and enter the lists for a re-election to
the Senate. The Globe prediction bids fair
to be speedily verified.
The Globe on yesterday gave quite a long
review of the autopsy of President Garfield'e
remains in which it was very positively
claimed that the life of the President might
have been saved under proper treatment. The
doctors deny these charges and there has thus
begun a wrangle which may never be settled.
There is little doubt that the President's case
was hopeless for many weeks before
his death, but it is not so clear that proper
skill at the outset would not have restored
him to health. No one imagines that the
physicians did not essay to do their best
but such dire consequences hung upon their
work that they did not dare take
the measures which might have proved
the very salvation desired. There
was, besides, the professional etiquette,
and the ambition to be prominent is so import,
ant a matter, which undoubtedly preveated
the employment of superior medical aid un
til the unprofessional eye of Mrs. Garfieid saw*
that something was lacking and insisted upon
the constant presence of Drs. Hamilton or
Agnew for the remander of the time.
It is not pleasant to believe that Garfiele
was a victim of professional etiquette or med
ical bungling, but we are forced to that con
clusion. While, as a matter of course, thip
does net paliate or lessen the infamous crime
of the assassin, it increases the calamity to
think that it might have been averted. The
N. Y. Herald concludes a lengthy and able
review of the case in these words:
There is probably not one well instructed
medical man in the United States who does
not to-day believe that if tbe surgeons bad cut
for the bullet on July 3 they would have
found it, and that the great stamina of the
patient would have carried him through that
not very difficult operation, and that he would
have perfectly recovered in a short time from
the wound and all its consequences. Then
there would have been no pyaemia, and it was
the pyaemia that led the way to death;
Sudden Death of E. O. Patrldge.
One of the most sudden deaths the Globe
has been called upon to record occurred last
evening. Mr. E. O. Patridge, one of our old
and well known citizens, went to the First
Baptist church last evening, where he sings
in the choir. After singing the opening hymn
he complained of a pain at the pit of his
stomach, and, accompanied by his daughter,
started for home. They had just crossed the
street, and were in front of 8. S. Eaton's
residence, corner of Ninth and Wacouta
streets, when he dropped dead upon the side
walk. Medicai aid was speedily summoned,
but life was entirely extinct, the physicians
pronouncing it a stroke of apoplexy. His re
mains were taken to the family residence on
Rosabel street. He was 53 years of age, and
at the time of his death was a member of the
firm of B. Presley & Co., fruit and commis
sion dealers.
Went Ont at the Right Time.
Hon. R. R. Nelson, judge of the United
States district court, has reason to consider
himself fortunate in the time in which he ab
sented himself from his office in the custom
house building Saturday afternoon. He went
out from the room for only two minutes, and
while he was out, without warning, the ceil
ing of the room fell in. The material which
fell was heavy enough to have inflicted serious
injuries and might have killed the judge had
he not fortunately been out of the way at just
that right time.

The JWasonic Mourning Arch.
As this structure, the plan of which was
described in the Globe of Friday, approaches
completion, it attracts much attention, and is
universally commended as a worthy tribute of
respect to the late president. The design re
flects credit upon Mr. Radcliff and his assist
ants, and its execution is particularly credi
table to Mr. A. D. Hinsdale, to whom Mr.
Radcliff especially committed the 'work. It
will be entirely completed at an early hour this
morning, and will probably be maintained for
the conventional period of public mourning.
The columns are six feet square. The en-,
trance to the arch is 28 feet wide and 28 feet
high, and the extreme height of the structure
is 45 feet. The whole, excepting only the em
blematic work, is heavily draped and covered in
black. The first section of the columns, each
approached by the emblematic steps, represents
the Blue Lodee, with the alter in one column,
the broken column in the other, and other
proper devices illustrative of Masonic teach
ings — the square, compass and letter G. The
lodge represented.on the a] Jar side will be An
cient Landmark, and the lodge represented on
the other side will be St. Paul LaJge. Above
these sections, in white letters will be inscrib
ed the names of the lodge 3. The top of the
arch will represent Minnesota R. A. Chapter
No. 1, with the emblematic keystone at the
center and on the sides of the arch and altar.
The name of the Chapter win appear and on
the keystone in the usual circle will appear
the familiar letters which teach a lesson of
Royal Arch Masonry. The Commandery (Da
mascus No. 1) will be represented in the enta
blature. In the frieze of the entablature, on the
eastern face, is inscribed "James A. Garfield;
he was a true and courteous knight," aud on
the western face, "He has fallen with his ar
mor on, prepared for knightly
deeds." In the pediment of the
entablature is the commandery coat of arms
and above it a representation of a dying knight
with a background of bannerets. The cross
aud crown appear in the center. From the
center of the impediment drops the commaud
ery flag. On top of the entablature, above the
columns, are four lions encumbent on the
American flag. A funeral wreath extends
from the corners of the entablature to the top.
From the main structure over the walks are
flying buttresses composed of wheels of ban
nerets. The approaches to the Blue lodges
will be strewn io'cJay with flowers. There
will be alsa profuse floral decorations of
wreaths, crosses, etc., and the street and
walks of the vicinity are to be covered with
In this connection attention may well be
called to the simple good taMe of the inourn
mg decorations at foot of Masonic hall. They
correspond well with the massive character
of the arch, without distracting the view
which would take in the fine proportions and
arrangement ofcthat structure.

The Vocal Exercises. »
An impression prevails that in the vocal ex
ercises upon Bridge square to-day only gen
tlemen are expected to participate. Ladies,
children, and in fact, everyone, is requested to
join. About 300 assembled for rehearsal at
Market hall yestetsay afternoon. The appro
ate hymn, "Nearer My God to Thee,' 1 has
been printed with a mourning border, and will
be distributed in the audience on the square.
To aid in supplying those desiring to join in
the singing the Globe appends them:
Nearer, my Ood, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!
E'en though it be a cross
Still all my song thai! be,
Meare , my Ood, to Thee,
.Nearer to Thee.
Though a lone wanderer,
Tbe sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
Pillowed on stone,
Yet in my dreams I'd be
Nearer, my Fod, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.
There let the way appear
Stops up toheav'n —
All that Thou sendest me

Angela to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.
Or If, in Joyful wing

Nearer, my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

Quartette of Desperadoes.
There arrived in this city by the early train
from the west yesterday morning, Sheriff
Mertz, of Brainard, and Sheriff T. C. Bevies, ot
Crow Wing, having in charge the two outlaws,
George Howard and Henry Taylor, and two
other prisoners.
The men Howard and Taylor, were con
victed of [murdering an Indian, and sentenced
to the state penitentary for life. The crime
was dastardly and bloodthirsty in the ex
treme. The desparadoes visited an Indian
camp near Aitkin, and during a drunken spree
they offered gross insults to several of the
squaws, being finally driven from the camp.
Returning to the camp armed they fired in
to a crowd of Indians, killing the brother of
the chief. The cold-blooded nature of the
affair aroused the resentmentbf the Indians
and great excitement prevailed. They were
lucky to escape with their lives.
The third prisoner is Samuel McGraw,
formerly a farmer at Aitken. While on a
spree he had a difficulty with a man named
Smith, employed as a clerk in one of the stores
at Aitken, and during the melee the latter was
shet and mortally wounded. McGraw goes
up for two years.
The last prisoner is William Murphy, sen
tenced to two years for burglary and one year
for laiceny. They will be taken over to-mor
A Man .Makes the Passage Safely, and
Swims Ashore.
An immense furore was created among the
hundreds of spectators on Bridge Square about
3:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, by the unex
pected appearance on the bridge of a young
man attired in the breezy costume of tights,
and his subsequent leap from the big span of
the bridge to the swift flowing waters of the
river below, a distance of ninety feet. That
portion of the crowd who had witnessed the
hazardous leap held their breath in
suspense, expecting that the young
man would never come up alive.
In this respect they were pleasanely surprised.
On leaping from the bridge he shot down
ward like an arrow, inclining somewhat and
striking the water on his shoulder. In a
moment he came to the surface and struck
out with the skill and finish of an expert
swimmer. Paddlirjg along at an easy stroke
he reached a point near the Sioux City freight
house where he landed. Meantime the excite
ment was intense; the supposition
boing that he was a lunat
ic or a would * be suicide.
Officer Fitzgerald sought a practical solution
of the question and when he landed he was
put under arrest. After donning his outward
clothing he was taken to the city hall where
he was interviewed, by a Globe reporter. He
gave the name of C. H. Morton and stated
that he was in the employ of a wholesale
house in that city. He is about 28 years of
age, an Englishman and a good converser. He
stated that the leap was made on a wager; that
he had jumped twice from the Minneapolis
bridge and once from the London suspension
bridge, a distance of 120 feet. He feels highly
indignant at his arrest, staling that as his per
son was neatly attired in new underwraps, the
offense was not indecent exposure of person.
Assuring a reporter the costume was cartainly
equal to that worn by the members of the
boat club during practice and at their regat

Not Coming to Kittsondale.
The visit of Commodore KitUou (accompanied by
Mr. D. W. Woodmansee) to Chicago two weeks ago
to ace and inspect the famous stallion Nutwood, by
De mont, dam Mils Bussell (dam of Maud 8.), with
a possible view of adding him to the Xlttsondal*
stnd. did not result in the purchase being couum
naed. Nutwood was shown Mr. Klttson and
Woodmansee on the Chicago track, giving them an
exhibition mile In 3:31. This, of coarse, was no
fair measure of his speed, the horse being decidedly
out of condition, but from what they saw of him,
they reached the conclusion that he would never
again equal his record, 2:183f, made In his 5-year
form, and as Mr. Eittson desires sires able to trot
luw down in the figures now, as well
as breeding, the idaa of purchase was relinquished
Nutwood is a dark okeitnut, a shade darker
than his famoos half Bister Maud 8., stands IS 3 in
front, and nearly or quite an inch higher behind,
and in his general formation and breeding is a very
fine type of a trotter. As has been stated, he goes
te tbe Woodburn stock from Ey., under contract to
eerre thirty mares in the spring, after which, should
he shew a return of bis old time speed, it is suppos
ed he will be entered in the stallion events another
While absent, Mr. Woodmansee took a run iato
Ohio in answer to a letter offering
to produce a 5-year-old Smuggler coli
who would show a half mile iv 1:09*,
a 2:19 pait, for $16,(100. The colt was produced, but
the best he could do was a half in l :11ft, a 2 :23 gait
—a good performance, but not fast enough to suit
Mr. KUtson, Yon Arnim, the pres
ent king of the Kittsondale harem, at the
game age and in some hot races against the famous
Trinkett. Charley Ford, Voltaire and other noted
turf performers, having lapped Trinkett out In
2 :19J4 and secured a record of 2:22. Since owned
by Mr. Eittson, Yon Arnim has trotted but one race,
that at the recent Minneapolis Exposition, for stal
lions, beating Capt. Herod and Portion with com
manding cane, best time 2 :28. All who saw the race
know that this performance does not by any means
r«pre»ent Yon Arnim's speed. In the first place he
was in very poor condition for a race, and secondly
the track wa» 3to 4 seconds slow, but there is little
doubt had he been driven ont he could on that day
and on that track have at least duplicated his record
of 2 :22 . WSat he could do, put in proper condition,
is of course mere matter of conjeoture. but that he
could show better than 3:20 there is scarcely room
to doubt a fact which we believe will be veri
fied by his performance at the Gentlemen* Driviog
park, New York City, October 4. Couple with thi»
possession of speed, his good size, hands me color,
spleDdid limbs, as clean anJ sound as on the day he
was foaled, his tractable disposition, fine brainy
head, his natural trottiog instinct, ambition to trot
to the front and great endurance, and we have a
horse that Mr Eittion will have trouble to dupli
cate, saying nothing about a superior.
The Sickness Among the Horses.
The epidemic among the horses mentioned in this
department a week ago continues unabated, and
probably nearly or quite a quarter of the horses of
the city are more or less disabled, inflicting incon
venience and loss upon liverymen, truck uon and
others employing large nuibers of horses and more
or less seriouoly interfering with the movement of
merchandise, delivery of wood. and oihar business in
which horses are employed. But tbe disease is by no
means of so serioue a character as statements which
have appeared in other of the city papers would in
dicate. For instance, the Dispatch the other even
ing stated upon the author ty, it sai4, of a well
known hackman, that th<re had been 250 death*
from tbe dlseasw in this city in the past two weeks.
We think the Dispatch mast have misunderstood
the hackman, as the statement greatly exagerates
tbe mortality, as ascertained by inquiries of veter
inary surgeons, liverymen, hackmen and others.
Mr. «lexand>r, superintendent of the street rail
way, upon which aearly 200 bones are employed,
informs us that of forty odd which have been sick
vl are convalescing, not a death . Dr. Berkman say*
of nearly 400 horses he has treated, net one has
died. Other veterinarians make almost equally fa
vorable reports. In fact all appear to have correct
ly diagnosed the disease when first brought to their
attention, and to have been most successful in
t- eating it. But still stronger testimony that the
mortality is in no way alarming, it that
of one of the proprietors of tbe rendering company,
by whom tbe carcasses are removed, who states that
tbe average dsily deaths are only 3 and a small per
cent, in this city agaioet between 6 and 7 im Minne
apolis, and bnt little if any larger than they were in
tbe hot seasoh in July and August. He also states
that tbe deaths are generally of old and decrepit an
imal*, the young spr edlly recovering if given any
thing like decent treatment. When it is remembered
that tbe mortality from uatural causes alone would
be almost if not quite two a day, the idea of any
i- care at the preset) t death rate is preposterous.
When the disease first appeared and before its char
acter was understood, tie morta ity was greater,
from the fact that horses were continued at work
until too late to effect a cure Thai John St. Aubin,
the truek -Ban, lost six head within a few days of
each other bat since hiring called in a voternarlan,
though the disease hu gone through hla entire (ta
ble and peveral horse) have been and are still quite
sick, not a death has occurred.
As we said last week an essential, is absolute rest
from all work upon the first appearance of the dis
ease Work is almost sore death Best, good care
and treatment almost as certain re overy
The disease is nothing more or less than a fev«?r,
partaking in different cases of the character of in
termittent, putrid and typhoid, and that all may know
wh°u their hones are Buffering from either, we give

when he entered Welbraham acadeiry,
Mass., where he prepared for college. He
cnteaed the junior class of Oberlin in
1846, teaching two winters in Ohio, and
graduating with his class in honorable
distinction. After receiving his collegi
ate degree he spent three years in the
Theological seminary at Andover, Mass.,
graduating in 1851. In the autumn of
this year he married Fanny B. Rice and
became pastor of the Congregational
church of Raymond, Mass. In the spring
of 1555 he resigned on account of bron
chial difficulty, intending to try the in
land climate, but after a short respite
from labor he took charge of the Congre
gational church at Rutland, Mass., where
he remained until the autumn of 1857,
when he removed to Chicago, where he
taught a select school during the follow
ing winttr.
In May, 1858, Mr. Burt removed to
Winona, this State, under call of the
Congregational church. Soon after he
was appointed superintendeat of the
public schools in that city. In 1859 he
was made a member of the prudential
board of the state normal school, located
there. He also served as a county exam
iner of county school teachers, and was
an original member of the State Teachers'
Association, organized about that time.
In August, 1866, Mr Burt was appoint
ed by Gen. Howard on the staff of Gen.
Clinton B. Fisk, commissioner of the
Freedmen's Bureau at Nashville,
Term. . The duty assigned him
in this position was that of
general superintendent of the colored
schools of the state, which schools were
then under the charge of the bureau.
The climate of the South proving un
favorable to his health, he resigned after
about, two years of service and returned
to Minnesota. In the autumn of 1868
and the winter following he supplied the
Plymouth church ol Minneapolis, in the
absence of its pastor, then in Europe.
While on a visit in Massachusetts in the
autumn of 1869, he was prostrated by a
severe hemorrhage of the lungs. While
in that condition he was informed
he had been appointed super
intendent of schools for Winona county,
the duties of which he assumed the fol
lowing spring. In 1875 he was appointed
and accepted the office of state superin
tendent of public instruction, which po
sition he held until a few weeks since.
Mr. Burt was thoroughly devoted to
the cause of education, and in the office
of superintendent of public instruction
labored zealously and untiringly to sys
tematize our system and elevate the place
he purposed to make his future home.
Here some six weeks ago he was confined
to his bed, since which his decline has
been steadily going on, until finally death
claimed him as above.
By his marriage, Mr. Burt had four
children, one of which died and was bur
ied at Rutland, Mass., and another at
Winona, while two survive him, a son,
Charles, clerk in the office lately vacated
by his father,and a daughter, who with the
wife and mother, constitute the immedi
ate family of the diseased, left to mourn
his death. The funeral will take place
at Northfield, his home for the past six
months, at 2^p. m. to-day.
