Mb . Howard C. Dickinson, to whom ex-
Senator Dorsey addressed the letter pub

says, ' ; as to Mr. Dorsey being offered a
cabinet position by Garfield I know that
to be a fact." Others know that to be a
fact also. If Dorsey had accepted the
proffer Garfield would be living to-day.
The cabinet finally selected was a great
mistake. Not a man of the whole batch
was worthy of or suited to the honor and
trust. That the peculiar composition of
the cabinet cost Garfield his life, no one

A Massachusetts judge,Aldrich by name,
in a jury trial which had been argued three
days, gave the following charge te the
jury: "Gentlemen of the jury, the only
question for your consideration is whether
the defendants agreed to pay rent to the
first day of January or the first day of
February." For sensible brevity this is a
ruodel, and if Judges would always em
ploy directness in their charges to jurors,
based on common sense, there would be no
complaint of the jury system. As an
average the verdicts of juries exhibit more
common sense and equity than do the
courts who are supposed to guide and in
struct them.
Secketabt Chandleb, of Uncle Sam's
"navee." has been looking up his navy yard
pay rolls, and finds on the llith of Novem
ber, 1882, (just after election time in many
of the eastern states), that 4,4G2 per
sons were paid a total of $11,319
daily, or at the rate of $3,000,000 per pii
num. He then glances around to see what
they have to do, and finds this small army
are repairing six old war vessels, namely
the Omaha, Shenandoah, Trenton, Ossipee,
Mohican and the Alert, the latter being a
small vessel and on the Washington stocks
for several years. It has been claimed that
the eastern navy yards have been crowded
with men every November for years to vote
the Republican ticket, and this showing by
Secretary Chandler, with his items of work
on hand, proves that the assertion has been
a fixed fast.
The floods along the Mississippi river
that are now of almost daily occurrence,
emphasize the necessity for so protecting
the banks of the stream as to prevent
overflows that are destructive to property
and result in loss of life. The last session
of congress made no appropriation for
the improvement of the river, though hap
pily there was a sufficient surplus left over
from the appropriation of the preceding
year to enable the continuance of the work
for a month to come. Every day lost,
however, involves an additional danger to
those living along its banks, and before
empress awakens to the emergency far
more damage may be done than the cost
of the entire work. It is to be hoped that
the next congress will take early steps to
vrards prosecuting the work, which is, of
fact, a great national work .

Miss Edith Bukhart, residing at
Sfoungstown, Ohio, had, as young ladies
:-vh*j-; times do, a gentleman correspondent.
In someway a sealed letter addressed to
ihe fair Edith fell into the hands of Mr?.
Margaret Hopkins and that lady opened it
and road it, whereupon the young 1 lady
whose private :^hcs were thus invaded
caused Mrs. H< to be arrested by a
i.'nited States marshal and brought before
a United States cozsxnissioner for viola
tion of tho postal laws. Mrs . Hopkins
confessed that she opened the letter, and
vs ie fr-.rk enough to say that she wanted
to know who it was that was writ
ing to Miss 8., and what he was writing
about. The stern official did not find in
the culprit's plea of curiosity any miti
gating circumstances, and aceordißgly
hold her for trial in the United States
court at Cleveland. Before the case is
disposed of Mrs. Hopkins will deeply re
gret the interest she took in the young
lady's affairs, and tho more so as she failed
in capturing Miss Edith's lover and at
taching him to herself, and her jealousy
has placed her in a very painful position.
Gen. Shebman, as every one knows, is a
free talker. Since his headquarters have
been at Washington he has been very much
ota society man, being in this respect en
tirely different from his brother, Senator
John. When he goes upon the army re
tired list, a few months hence, he will re
side at St. Louis. Having been a society
man his opinion of Washington life is in
teresting, and what the old soldier thinks
of newspapers and a certain newspaper
man, is certainly Sherman-esque, to say
the least:
"When I made up my mind to retire
from the army," said the general, "I de
termined to leave Washington. It is full
of hollowness, hypocrisy and snobbery. I
declare it is an indecency and a shame the
way families are invaded here by news
paper reporters. There is no home pri
vacy whatever. You cannot do a thing in
Washington that a reporter is not at your
door to find out about it. So I said: 'El
len, you and the children select a home
somewhere away from Washington. I will
take you to Yonkers, or New York, or St.
Louis, or anywhere yon want to go, bat de
cide the matter for once and all time.'
After doe consideration they settled on St.
Louis, and I said: 'Now, that ends it; we
will have no more discussion about it. St.
Louis is the place.'" He was dispesed
to indulge in a tirade on newspapers and
certain newspaper men. "Now," said he,
"there's this fellow Whitelaw Reid, editor
of the New York Tribune; he's a treacher
ous cuss. He can write more lies to the
column than any newspaper man in Amer
ica. He ran like a scared wolf, too, at the
battle of Shiloh . After the repulse of the
first day he started to the rear and never
stopped running till he got to Cincinnati.
He sent off a lot of lies to his paper, say
in that our whole army had been beaten
and cut to pieces, and was astonished to
learn afterward that it was just the other
To-day witnesses the seventieth birthday
of Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, which is to
be celebrated by a pnblic meeting at the
Brooklyn Academy of Music. Prof. Charles
E. West is chairman of the committee
having charge of the ceremonial, Rev. Dr.
Charles H. Hall will preside, and among
the speakers will be Gen. Grant, Mayor
Low, Rev. Dr. Armitage and Rev.
Robert Collyer. Mr. Beecher has
lived at Brooklyn thirty-six years,
and in his note accepting
the demonstration says if the proposition
had come from his immediate personal
friends, or from members of his church
and society he should have begged permis
sion to decline it. But as the invitation is
from citizens at large in every walk of
life, of widely different views, both of
politics and religion— from men eminent
in their several professions, it is accepted
with thanks. Mr. Beecher says he un
derstands the movement to come from a
generous desire of those among whom
he has lived so many years to express their
affection and confidence, and this is an
honor that ought not to be put away for
the sake of his private wishes or tastes.
The true inwardness of this matter is, how
ever, to somewhat relieve Mr. Beecher
from the deep humiliation and mortifica
tion he experienced in being utterly omit
ted and ignored on the occasion of opening
the Brooklyn bridge. Nothing ever so
deeply stung Mr. Beecher as that apparent
and premeditated slight commit
ted in the eyes of the
world. How much this "put up" demon
stration will relieve Mr. Beecher's feelings
may never be known. Most men would
prefer a genuine testimonial or none, but
Mr. Beecher may be satisfied with this hol
low parade.
Judge Hoadly, the candidate of the Ohio
Democracy for governor, will celebrate his
fifty-seventh birthday July 31 proximo.
He was born at Hartford, Conn., but his
father, who was a lawyer, removed to
Cleveland, Ohio, when his son was four
years old, this being in the year 183 C.
Young Hoadly attended the public schools
of Cleveland, and with such fitting as they
afforded at that period he entered Western
Reserve college at Hudson, Ohio, gradu
ating in 1844. In his youth he gave token
of more than ordinary intellectual endow
ments and a maturity beyond his years.
After his graduation he studied law under
Judge Story and Simon Greenleaf, at the
Cambridge law school, and also with Judge
Converse at Zanesville. At the beginning
of 184(5 he entered the office of Chase
Ball, in Cincinnati, and was admitted to
the bar the following year, 1847. S. P.
Chase manifested an unusual interest in
the young man and invited him to a pro
fessional partnership,which continued from
1X49 to 1851, Hoadly in the last named
year, when he was but 24, being
elected judge of the superior court of Cin
cinnati. In 1855 he was elected city
solicitor, and in 1859 again elected super
ior judge. While Chase was governor of
the state he offered to appoint his young
protege to the Supreme bench. In 18(J7
he was a third time elected judge, but soon
resigned to form his present law firm of
Hoadly, Colston & Johnson. In 1873 he
was elected delegate to the
constitutional convention, being chair
man of the committee on municipal cor
porations. For several years his law
practice has amounted to |25.000 to $50,
--000 a year. A pen sketch of him is as
follows :
Above medium height, form of fair propor
tions, and a shapely head, very much the mould
of Garfield's. His brown beard contains here
and there a gray hair, and is nicely trimm?d and
combed. His eyes are light brown, quick, pene
trating, and, withal, kind. He uses eye glasses
in reading, which are allowed to fall to his side
when addressing a court or jury. In argument
he is keen and comprehensive, *vitty and elo
quent — a magnificer.t specimen of an erudite
scholar. He talks quickly and with emphasis.
•Judge Hoadly lives handsomely at Cincinnati,
on East Walnut Hills, in the same ward and pre
cinct with Jndg • Foraker, the Republican nomi
-1 •■. He has a charming wife and family of
children — two tons aodadaogher. One son,
George Jr,, j admitted to the bar.
The Judge was married in 1831. His wife's
maiden name was Mary Burnett Perry, daughter
of Captain Samuel Perry, one of the early Bet
tiers of Cincinnati. His law partners are Eilgnr
M. Johnson and Edward Colston.
Judge Hoadly is an eloquent, mag
netic speaker, and in private life the
soul of geniality. Probably he has no su
perior to-day at the Ohio bar, and few if
any equals. This is the man who is to be
the next governor of Ohio, and against
whose fame no honest man will breathe a
A3 a political leader he is not entirely
untried, and was temporary chairman of
the Democratic National convention of
18S0. A canvass of the state of Ohio
under hi 6 leadership will, be a new
experience, and if the Republican
party want to stand even in the race they
will have to bring to the front better men
than they have there now. Judge Hoad
ly is a large enough man for any posi
tion, including the presidency of the Unit
ed States. The Ohio Democracy did the
wisest thing in their power in putting
him at the head of their state ticket. He
will lead his party to triumphant victory.
Upon their candidate and platform the
Ohio Democrats are to be congratulated.
The greatest wisdom has been observed
and it will be maintained throughout the

Pabish City, Jane 23.— The Republican
county convention convened at Centre City
to-day and organized by electing F. H.
Pratt chairman and L. J. Stark secretary.
The following delegates were elected to
represent the county in the state conven
tion, viz: Frank Peterson. L. J. Stark
and Sholun.
In selecting the delegates the northern
end of the county, as well as the American
element were entirely ignored, the three
gentlemen above named being Swedes, and
"to the manor born."
The following resolution introduced
by Hon. F. S. Christeneen, of Rush City,
was unanimously adopted, viz:
Resolved, That we heartily endorse the
administration of Gov. L. F. Hnbbard.
and fully endorse him, Fred Yon Baumbach
and Chas. Kittelson for re-nomination to
their respective offices.
The chair appointed the following named
gentlemen as the Co. committee for the
ensuing year, after which the convention
adjourned, to-wit: W. H. Wynkoop, chair

The excursion trains on the Manitoba
and Milwaukee &, St. Paul short lines for
Minneapolis and Minnetonka, were well
patronized yesterday.
A special train of two coaches, attached
to the regular 2 o'clock Duluth tram, left
the depot yesterday, filled with passengers
destined for Rifle park, where the rifle
club indulged in a friendly shoot.
The railroad offices, where interesting
newslets are so freely and so cheerfully
dished up to reporters, were not accessible
yesterday to these knights of the pencil,
as those who are usually to be found there
of a Sunday, having been so
charmed and inspirited with the
prospect of a lojely day that they had
turned the keys and joined the "multitude"
destined for Red Rock, White Bear and
Minnetonka, seeking pleasure and much
needed recreation. It wa3 a quiet day in
railway circles.
The Dcs Moines fast train over the
Omaha road is said to be the fastest
train in the state. Its speed is forty-five
miles per hour. Conductors AY. H. Vander
water and H. E. Sargeant have charge of
the trains. People living along the line
of the Omaha road as far south as the
lowa state line, express great satisfac
tiou over this new arrangement,
which makes St. Paul so accessible for
business purposes. The Omaha and North
western officials, who conceived the idea
of a through fast train from St . Paul to
Dcs Moines, to compete for passenger
traffic, have struck the popular vein, surely.
Trains leave St. Paul at 5:30 a. m., and ar
rive at Dcs Moines at 7:lf> p. m. Return
ing leave Dcs Moines at 9:20 a. m., and
reach St. Paul at 11.05 p. m. There is no
change of cars. This train will prove a
strong rival of the Minneapolis & St.
Louis road, and can truly be called the
'■Ixoyal Route South."

A Highly Successful Series of Meetings
Yesterday at the Red Rock Camp Meet
Yesterday at Red Rock was a success.
The people began filling the grove at
love feast in the morning and at 10 o'clock
there was an audience of 2.000 which wa>
increased by every arriving train and
boat. Harrison preached a short sermon
after love feast, holding the closest atten
tion of the entire congregation, catching
the iattre=t of a great mnuy by the pecul
iar way in which he announced his text,
referring io it a great many times as Johii
6 37, and the last clause of the verge. He
said there were G.OOO promises in the Bible,
but the one contained in this clause was
the greatest, the most precious one given
to mankind. That it admitted of no maybes
nor perhaps sos in regard to the possibil
ity of a man's being saved fina ly, giving
the words of the text: "And him that
cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."
after which he spoke on it a few
minutes, intermingling more or
less singing with his sermon
In the afternoon at 2 the business men's
meeting led by Mr. Briggs was held in one
part of the grove, there being speaking by
the leader and other gentlemen. At the
same hour the mothers' meeting convened
in the tabernacle, having short talks by
several of the ladies and was very interest
ing; conducted by Mrs. E. B. Higgins, of
Hamline. While these exercises were go
ing on there was a song service at the
main stand, conducted by Dr. Marshall.
Mr. Weeden, advance agent of the New
Orleans Jabi'e? singers, sang several
solos .
At 3 Rev. Robert Forbes preached an
able sermon from Rev. 21-1, saying that
God did not make a man's character but
him the possibilities, leaving him to
form it for himself. God also gives man
one good, fair chance for heaven and re
quires him to improve that chance, receiv
ing his salvation through Jesus Christ.
The speaker also thought that the
great mass of mankind who were
trying to gain heaven would succeed, and
that Christianity had but begun.
The character and glory of heaven were
then considered. Heaven was real (as well
as a stat«,its glory unsurpassed and undying
for the Christian was but being born* into
heaven. The after services by Harrison
were well responded to and lasted for some

This evening the celebrated Miller Bros.,
spiritual mediums from jßoston, assisted
by Miss Leyton, second sight reader, will
give an entertainment at the Opera house .
The Buffalo Express contains the following
account of their recent revelations in that
city: Mr. J. Miller, the spiritual medium,
drew a large audience at the Academy of
Music, last evening. For the first experi
ment there were distributed among the
audience a number of slips of paper and
envelopes, with the request that some
name be written on the former and sealed
up in the latter. This having been done,
Mr. Miller gathered them up, and holding
each in turn above his head told the name
written on the slip. He washed a slate on
either side and stood it up on a chair, in
full view, laying a piece of chalk behind
it. On taking up the slate a message was
written thereon. Opening a book at ran
dom Mr. Miller read two pages from the
stage, the book being held by one of the
audience. Some table tilting was next in
dulged in by or through four ladies. Ex-
Mayor Becker, at thi* moment was called
upon the stage, and aided by a person
in the audience, fastened Mr.
French ' ; for keeps." It was dif
ferent from the usual dark cabinet affair,
for the reason that piece by piece, the
committee fixed things their own way,
tying the medium with cotton bandages to
iron rings attached to a strong post and
sealing the knots. Thus tied, hands were
shown. The two gentlemen forming the
committee were recipients of satisfactory
communications from departed friends.
Last of all Mr. Miller laid his hands on a
heavy wooden table which was raised
from the floor. Altogether it was a re
markable exhibition, and to the apprecia
tion of whatever belief, highly satis

A Reception to Egan.
St. Louis, June 24. — A reception was
given at St . Patrick's hall to-night to
Patrick Egan, at which a large number of
Irish citizens were present. Mr. Egan
made a brief speech acknowledging the
compliment paid him, and expecting all
to stand by the National league. The
only notable feature of the occasion was
the prolonged hissing of Judge O'Neal,
when in his speech he deprecated secret
societies, and denounced the murder of
Lord Cavendish.
'•Corntcl" Tandrrl'ilt'.s Debts.
A letter from Hartford, Conn., says:
"The late Cornelius J. Vanderbilt becomes
a living memory a^ain in tre community.
Indeed ho will probably always be a man
of note here, and the note unpaid ;it that.
What revives him now is the announcement
that his magnificent and really palatial
house on Yanderbilt hill i3to be soli by
auction with all if.3 contents the 28th. It is
doubtful if thers is another wood hou«« of
equal richness and eler-mce in Connecti
cut. Apparently no expense was spared
anywhere. The interior wood work is very
fine, the decoration and coloring of walls,
carpets, etc., is rich and harmonious, and
the style of the furniture can be inferred
from a sideboard, which is a magnificent
piece of Venitian carving. All this must
go. The house is mortgaged to the school
fund of Connecticut for $2«>,000, and it is
said there are builders liens on it besides.
Then of Cornelius' old and new debts the
probate c^urt has declared about $12,000
to be still valid. They also make a lien
upon his Connecticut estate. Should
the Mr. Te.ry, who inherits by Mr. Yan
derbilt's will, take the house, a3 he could
under the will, he would have to assume
and pay these debts, and moreover he
would have a pretty large house on his
hands; so, it is reported, he prefers to let
the Connecticut estate settle itself. Who
will buy the house remains to be seen . It
occupies the finest situation near Hartford,
and there are fewer finer places in the
state, but the hitch in the real estate mar
ket, for a long time— the worst hitch that
is — has been in the disposal of elegant
places. A man will refuse $30,000
for a $50,000 plaoe, and then go and
spend $50,000 building a house that he
can't sell for $30,000 when it is done. We
have some very elegeant places for sale
here now, such as Gov. Jewell's family
mansion, the Henry J. Johnson place, next
to Vauderbilt's, on the same ridge, and
others, and the test of what the finest of
them will bring under the hammer, will be
looked for with great interest. As for
Vanderbilt's debts they still eii3t, and his
brother, who sailed for Europe with a mil
lion dollar letter of credit in his pocket
JHst fora few weeks spending money, has
never replied to the correspondence from
here that suggested to him to clean up the
family record by paying tha poor trades
people and widows who hold Cornelias J.s
promises to pay."
Messrs. R. Hoe & Co., of New York, the
famous press manufacturers, have just
written a letter to the Boston Globe that
their new perfecting press will be com
pleted in September. This will give the
Globe a capacity of 50,000 papers an boar
and enable the management to print and
deliver 200,000 Globes in four hours, the
time in which a morning and evening
newspaper usually occupies in printing
and delivery. The enormous increase in
the circulation of the daily and Sunday
Globe forced the management to order ad-
I ditional machinery and confirms the im
pression in the public mind that the Globe
is makirg rapid strides.
''Tli" baby?" wo asked, as with mop and broom
Its mother came to the ranch one day.
'*Oh, she' 9 Picketed out across the way!
I dart' not leave her alone in the room."
And the busy mother looked for a tub,
While we saddled our horses and rode to see
How the lonely baby fared, wliile we
Had stolen its mother to sweep and scrub.
For the babies we were accustomed to
Could never have kept their silk and lace
Anil little beribboned hats in place,
With only a tree for their nurse, we knew.
But this Kansas baby had no hat;
And it laughed as if it thought silk and lace
Would have been entirely out of place
On a prairie — ur, for the matter of that,
Anywhere else. It could only go
The length of the rope; but its little feet
Pattered about where the grass was sweet,
Just as it pleased; and that, you know,
Is myre than the city babies do:
For. trundled under the city trees,
They ;ire carried just wh re the nurses please,
Which I shouldn't like at all; should you?
As I thought it over; it seemed to me
That a city darling has less to hope,
'"Picketed out'" with invisible rope
To a somewhat less reliable tree!
Where Ti,e..'<- is Xo Cat the Hats Have
Everything Their Own Way,
Certainly the place to study these vermin
in their utmost luxuriance is on board a
ship where there is no cat. I don't believe
that sea-goin^ cats catch very many — they
are too well fed and lazy for that — but
their mere presence seems to keep the rats
under. Possibly it is that it is being
afraid to come within knowledge of the
enemy (which, with their sharp senses of
hearing, sight and smell, would mean a
prtttr "wide berth"), the rats are
compelkd to remain within a lim
ited space and prey on each
other; but whatever the reason may be, it
is an undoubted fact that their numbers
seem to increase enormously if the vessel
happens to be without a cat. when they get
bold beyond belief. It is strange that
nothing sesms to terrify them but the
feline monitor. I have sailed in steamers
under these circumstances where they were
becoming absolutely dangerous from their
multitude and impudence; committing
their ravages in broad daylight under one's
very nose, almost disputing the food on the
table with the legitimate diners, and either
making leisurely off when assaulted, or
sometimes actually turning and facing
their assailants.
Such a state of affairs as this is some
thing more than an inconvenience. We
used to kill numbers of them with the
greatest ease, but the fate of their com
rades had no deterrent effect upon the
surviving criminals, so far as we could
see. No wonder that the cats rose in price
at the first port we touched at. I should
think they have been scarce there ever
since. It is no exaggeration to say that
at night, when all was still, the rats ap
peared in shoals, rushing past one down
the companions, tumbling from beams
with a dull thud, sweeping across the
moonlit decks and awnings like the shadow
of a cloud, and starting up unexpectedly
under one's hands and feet; while their
clatter and uproar, dragging about of
heavy things, capsizing dishes and basins,
squealing and yells, combined with their
occasional jumping or dropping on us, or
running across our faces, rendered it nec
essary to be very sleepy indeed before
turning in with any hope of rest. The
boats are always their great resort, since
they are generally sure of getting a drink
there; rain-water collects in them, or lies
in the depressions of their canvas covers .
An experienced nautical cat will be seen
to frequently climb the davits and make
an inspection of the boats at sea. It used
to be rather amusing to watch the rats at
night, running from davit to davit along
the chains to which the awning lanyards
are made fast, their lithe bodies sharply
defined against the clear sky .
Prof. Hivcle'fon Elementary Teach ina.
There are a great many people who im
agine that elementary teaching (might
be properly carried out by teachers pro
vided with only elementary knowledge.
Let me assure yoa that that is the pro
foundest mistake in the world. There is
nothing so difficult to do as to write a
good elementary book, and there is no
body so hard to teach properly and well as
people who know nothing about a subject;
and I will tell you why. If I address
an audience of persons who are
occupied in the sainf> line of
work as myself I can assume
that they know a vast deal, and that they
can Snd out the blunders I make. If they
don't, it is their fault and not mine; but
when I appear before a body of people
who know nothing about the matter, who
take for gospel whatever I say, surely it
becomes needful that I consider what I
.-■it, make sure that it will bear examina
tion, and that Ido not impose upon the
credulity of thosa who have faith iv me.
la the second place, it involves that diffi
cult process of knowing what you know so
well that you can talk about it as you can
talk about your ordinary business. A
man can always talk about his own bu
siness. He can always m.-ike it plain; but
if his knowledge is hearsay he i 3 afraid to
beyond what he has recollected and put
it before those that are ignorant in such a
shape that they shall comprehend it. That
is why, to be a good elementary teacher,
to teach the elements of any subj-ect, re
quires most careful consideration if you
are a master of the subject; and if you are
not a master of it, it is needful you should
familiarize yourself with so much as you
are.called upon to teach — soak yourself
in it, so to s peak — until you know
it as a part of your daily life
and daily knowledge, and then you
will be able to teach anybody . That is
what I mean by practical teachers, and
although the deficiency ha 3 been remedied
to a large extent, I think it is one which
has long existed, and which has existed
from no fault of those who undertook to
teach, but because until within the last
score of years it absolutely was not pos
sible for anyone in a great many branches
of science, whatever his desire might be,
to get instruction which would enable him
to be a good teacher of elementary things.
All that is being rapidly altered, and I
hope will soon become a thing of the past."
