ANMS & ---LE.IN LLZL2 ~i=I S..NIQN AND SHRMAN George Gqrham, Biographer of the Great War Secretary, Defends His Memory, Reaseeoni Why the Teerlms of John aton's Surrender Were not Approved, The Senator Quoted as, Sa.ing Hlmself SThat What HIe Brother Proposed Wae Inldmnslsible. WAseoryaroN, April 10,-Hon. George Gorham, custodlan of the private papers of Secretary Stanton, and engaged on his biography, has written an open letter to Senator Shermad, dealing with the striking portions of the senator's recent address, and embodying supdry important historisal documents not before published. After re penting the reference of Senator Sherman to the terms of surrender made by Gen. Sherman in aicordance with Lincoln's policy for the. forces of Gen. Joseph John ston and other commanders. at the close of the war, Gorham said: "You woald have it understood that Gen. Sherman was set upon and insulted, and that the arrange ments were set aside by President Johnson and Secretary Stanton in a mean and nar row spirit of revenge, qnd that Gen. Grant interposed and the two generals agreed on new terms and ended the war. Whatever Lincoln's policy was, none knew better than you that he never usurped the powers of congress or allowed a. military subordinate to guide him by an unauthorized arrangement made under the supervision of Jefferson Davis and his cabinet. A fortnight before the Sherman Johnston negotiations,' Lincoln directed Grant to have no conference with Lee un less for the arrangement of Lee's capitula tion on purely military matters. This is proof that Lincoln would disapprove Sher man's arrangement. General Sherman, after receiving the government's disap proval of his terms, said: 'I admit my folly in embracing in the military conven tion any civic matters.' Your reference to Grant coming to Sherman's relief ,would lead to the supposition that Grant approved the agreement. On the contrary, he con demned it before it was submitted to the president or Secretary stanton." "Gorham quotes a letter, from Grant to Stanton, in which the former advises him of the re ceiptof Shgrman's.dispatches and requests a, cabinet council at onos,, as they are of sauchimportane. "In' a, note to. Gen. Sherman," Gorham continues, "Grant adviser him of the dis approval by the president of .the regot·ia tions exbept for the .urreaderof Johnston's army,, .ed the order for the termiination of the armistice and the resumption of hostil ities. Grant joined Sherman, and Sherman gave notice of the resumption of hostilities. Johnston thereupon surrendered on the terms accorded Lee by Grant. As a matter of prudence and necessity Stanton tele graphed to Gen. Dix in New .York to pub lish the same, with a sopy of the Sherman Johnston agreement and its disapproval by the government, to which was appended the reasons for the disapproval, which were that Gen. Sherman exercised authority not vested in him and made a practical ac knowledgment of the rebel government. The agreement undertook to re-establish the rebel state government, and placed the arms and munitions of war in the hands of the rebels, which might be used to subdue the loyal states, and the restoration of the rebel authority, which would enable them to re-establish slavery; would permit the federal government to pay the rebel debts, and subject loyal citizens in the rebel I states to these debts; would put in dispute the existence of the governmentof the loyal states and the new state of West Virginia; would abolish the confiscation laws and re lieve the rebels from the penalties of their crimes; which gave terms repeatedly re jected by Lincoln and better terms than the rebels ever asked for, and formed no basis for a true and lasting peace." Gorham says the publication of the dis approval had to he made to prevent serious and perhaps dangerous discontent, but no one will question the good intentions of r Gen. Sherman in making the agreement. 1 In conclusion Gorham quotaes one more 1 authority supporting Stanton as against 1 Senator Sherman. It is a letter written 1 by John Sherman from Cleveland April 27, 1865, to Secretary of War Stanton, saying e be was distressed beyond measure at the a terms granted by Gen. Sherman, and that r they were inadmissible. Yet he felt a gross injustice was done Gen. Sherman.who at the most granted the rebels the liberal terms; but the same could be said of Lincoln and Grant in the Lee arrangement. Gen. Sher- 1 man had not understood the political bear ing of the agreement but looked upon the contest from a simple military view. Sher- 1 man asserted his willingness, being so troubled about the matter, to go to Wash- p ington or anywhere else where he could E render the least service. In closing he said: a "I do not wish Gan. Sherman unjustly dlalt with, and know you will not oermit it; espeoially do I not want him driven into I the fellowship of copperheads." In com- c menting upon the letter Gorham save he casnnot find any reference to the insult, in which, it is now asserted, Johnson and Stanton rejected Bherman's terms. He honored and admired Sherman, also Stan ton, and being his biographer, he could not a remain silent when one of Stanton's great- c et and wisest acts was misstated to show I that Gen. Sherman was right when he (Sen ator Sherman) admitted he was wrong. r CONGRESS THIS WEEK. The Aprpropriatlion BIlls Well Under Way a in the leose. WAesnmraToN, April 10. -- After several weeks devoted to the tariff question, the appropriation bills new have the right of b way in the house. The bills are well ad- o vaucoed, and if the programme for the next ti iwo or three weeks is carried out, the ques lion of an early final adjournment will rest with the senate. Tihe house, however, is ti pursuing a policy of retrenchment, so long hi :onferences between the two branches of p, :ongress will follow the action by the sen- ai ito on the appropriation bills before the measures can be enacted into law. To morrow is District of Columbia day, but it is proposed to spend part of it on the argeacy deficiency appropriation bill. The a Endian and District of Colambia appropri- Al stion bills, which passed the senate, will be 'I put in conference during the week. Thebs w caval appropriation will probably be taken p ipTuesday. The consideration will co- j cpy at least two days, and may probably pr In till the close of the week. There will to is little discussion on the bill as a whole, ut there will be an amtive opposition to the eemmendation that only one new oruiser e authorized, and an earnest fight will be nade to have the bill amended so as to au- Cf horine the constraction of two new line of fu cattle ships and perhaps sqme torpedo ta moats, The sundry civil appropriation bill p sill follow and probably occupy the reo . cainder of the week, Bosldnahose billsly ther are on the calendar the esonedlsy diplomatic, jnd the friver and haroirrCip propriation bills, which in the folto W wek will be taken uno in the order nan.tw The senate is to listen to severtl1e. eehes this week.

The Emma Juch Opera Company .Die. bands at Los Angeles. Los AOxeals, Cal., April 10.--The llch opera company was disbanded here Friday and the heretofore irrepressible Charles 'O; Locke appeared to be at the end of his re sources. His costumes, ragged and. baggy at the knees, were attached and claimed by Stage Manager George Egoner and Treas urer Richard Vorekel, while Manager Mo Laun of the opera house claimed them on a bill of sale tok money advanced. Locke and Miss Juch, while sitting at their hotel were served with the attachment papers by Stage Manager George Egenor. Miss Joch burst into tears when the last attachment was served, but Locke smiled bravely and said airily to the constable, "Oh, that will be all right," and went on eating his beef steak. He said to a reporter that the suite were all inspired by spite, and that he would come out all right. When Miss Juch recovered she protested, and said to the constable: "I am not the owner of the copmpany. I simply sing for Locke for the salary which I don't get.". Miohelna, the tenor, is the only principal left. All the parts of the "Higoletta" Friday night were filled by people of the chorus. The latter have noew joined in the strike andhave refused absolutely to make an otiter move. They are in bad shape, nearly all of them being unable to speak Enalish. The company was to have left for Santa Barbara to-night, but Looke's and Jnoh's baggagle are in pawn at Hollenbeck's hotel. There is sure to be great suffering among the company. Locke is trying to secure $1,500, which he can't raise, A SUBMARINE SUCCESS. Trial of a Torpedo Beat Which -Was Bouilt in Detroit. DETR1T, Mich,, April 10.-The `iameless submarine boat which was buiit ere the past winter was given a thorough: T`al yes-. terday under water, and proved to a suc oess in every particular. With a' ew of threq onboard, the boat was suberaed, going down gradually ,and under 'rfeoct control of the pilot. Under wateh. the boatis able toattain a speed of over ten miles an houenr, turn around,. and rise or sink withthe greatest ease. li sink~o~ta rising the"5baolt maintained a horYio n position, a matter of great 'importat.Bdfor a submrarine boat. The boat is equipped to run by steam power while on the surface, but underneath water the motive force comes from a powerful electric storage bat tery, the cells being charged by the same engine that runs the beat on the surface. The present boat was built only as an ex periment. It is cigar shaped, with pointed ends and compressed sides, being, thirty feet long, fourteen feet deep and nine feet abeam. Its inventor is George C. Baker, of Chicago. FIGHT ON POWDER RIVER.

HOMe, April 10.-Archbishop Ireland, of St. Paul, speaking of the pope to-day said the latter's letter to the president of the it ,European commission is an unusual dooa y ment, and has surprised churchmen of the bold school. "Tenaoious of traditions and forms," says the archbishop, "the pope is c constantly giving proof that he is really 7 the pontiff of this age, understanding I- thoroughly its aspirations and methods. A few weeks ago he broke an honored custom to which, under the plea of guarding his Sdignity he has confined his power, and in an interview with a Parisian journalist, ad dressed himself through the public press to t the people of France upon the gravest po S`ijical and religious questions. To-day he 'ope s his mind in a most cordial letter to poiteatholio gentlemen, and through them Sto.a tion largely non-Catholic, bidding God speed to the gigantio enterprise which, on the shore of Lake Mich jgan, is to bring together, as never be eore int the universe, the fruits of the earth pd the work of genius and industry of tnpn." Archbishop Ireland said he could quote numerous instances as proof that there is no other European personage of note so American in his ,thoughts and sym pathies as Pope Leo. "He sees in the United States the perfect blossoming of that rational liberty he so ardently desires for all nations," says the archbishop, "and has derived from the United States, if not a good share of the democratic inspirations :,which he has been sending out over the ;world from the vatican, at least solid en ouragement for them." Archbishop Ire and went on to eulogize the pope in the igheet manner and said his pontificate ill be historic, marking one of the bright pages in the annals of the, church. is encyclicals," the archbishop says, ve dealt one after the other with the seing questions of the age, and h one comes out from the .ican more significant than the sceding one." The Archbishop dwelt aength on the encylical on labor and the one addressed to the peoyle of France, Smowing mQt elearl the ..araotsristio fe resa of the pope, and said "He is the pope of the future more than of the pres ent, in the sense that his work to-day is the sowing of fruitful ideas, the full growth of which cannot be seen for years to come. The future alone can judge Leo in jnstice." In conclusion the archbishop said Pope Leo bids fair to direct for several years yet the onward movements of the age. He has just entered upon his 83rd year, and while apparently most frail in body, he is healthy and capable of much labor. His mind is clear and vigorous as ever, and his memory most retentive. Punished for Meddling in Politics. iro JANEgro, April 10.-A document signed by thirteen superior army officers was circulated recently. It severely cen sured the deposition of several govern ors of provinces, commended\ the dictator ship of Gen. Da Fonseca, and' requested an immediate presidential election. The pe tition caused a sensation and the govern ment ordered all the officea concerned to be dismissed from the service. A few days ago a number of officers here signed a pe tition urging upon the vice-president the advisability of an immediate presidential election. They, too, were punished for in terfering in politicil matters, the entire number being placed on0 the retired list. The garrisons throughont the republic re main loyal to the existing government. vlidence Against Deeming. MELBOURNE, April 10.-An unclaimed basket which has lain in the Bairnesdale railwayoation since January has just been forwarded to the police here. The name of Mrs. Dods was inscribed upon the label in Deeming's handwriting, and a key found upon Deeming fitted the look. The basket contained apparel formerly belong ing to the ipurdered Mrs. Williams, or Deeming, Emily Mather, and a portion of a Liverpool paper, another portion of which was found at the sceone of the mur der of Mrs. Deeming at Windsor. Deeming continues to r'tend he is insane, although a number of physicians testified to the con trary. Dynamite Alarm in Spain. MADRim, April 10.-Munoz, an anarchist, was arrested to-day and examined in prison. A bag containing explosives, grenades and more formidable plojectiles, was found on Saturday night at the gate of the hospital for army pensioners. The alarm was re vived by the news that 110 pounds of dyna mite had been stolen from the mines near Linareas. The customary Palm bunday services were omitted in the royal chapel to-day, ostensibly on account of the queen regent's indisposition, but really on no count of the anarchist threats. Further anarchist arrests have been made in the provinces and in Bilbao. Tried to 1low Up thie Magistrate.

SWALLOWED THE RING, He Stole Ils Sister's Diamond BIng and game to Helena. Policemen Bossier and Qointin had an interesting experience with a young man who came to Helena yesterday morning from Boulder. After his departure the young man's siater mjssed her diamond ring and suspected that her brother had taken it. She came to Helena last night and reported the oircumstances at police headquarters. A description was given of the young man to the ofilders. A few min utes later Polieoman Quintin saw him com. ing out of a Main street pawnshop. The ofticer entered and found that the young man had tried to leave the ring with his uncle but wanted too rnouh. Qointin over took his man and told him that his sister had notified the police. He denied having the ring and was taken to the station to be searched. Blefore this Quintin and Bossler told him that if the ring was found on his persen they would have to enter a charge against him, and that he had better give it up, as his sister did not want to prosecute him. The young man startled the officers by exclaiming: "I can't; I've swallowed it, and it's stuck in my throat." He then poked his finger down his throat and threw up the ring with some blood caused by the ring lacerating his throat. The ring was given to his sister and the young man let go, which accounts for his name not get ting on the police blotter and into the paper. HE GREASED THE BARS. Escape ot a Man Concerned In the Rob bery of a Helena Lady. IST. PAUL, April 10.-[8pecial.]-About ten days ago Miss Frances Jurgens, of Hel ena, Mont., arrived at Jordan, Minn., to make a visit to relatives. Her trunk, con taining clothes and valuables worth about $1,000, arrived on the same train. The trunk was put into the depot by the agent, but when wanted Baturday could not be found. A detective in the employ of the railroad company arrived Thursday, and, without much delay located the trunk in the house of a farmer, Martin Spandel, re siding one and a half miles from town. Spandel was immediately taken into cus tody, and upon further inquiry and inves tigation it was ascertained that the trunk had been taken from the depot by two per sons (presumably tramps) and carried . about forty rodes north of town, where itf was opened and most of the contents taken. Spandel was to have been arraigned yester day, but duying the night "the bird had I flown." He greased the iron bare on the window with the butter served for qupper, and by divesting himself of his garments, pushed his way through the bars. His whereabouts are not known. OPENING THE PLUNGE. The Great Acquatic Theatre and Thermal Lake Crowded. At 10 a. m. yesterday Manager Campbell of the Hotel Broadwater opened the doors of the natatorium for the season. The electric car lines did a good business dur ing the day and evening, carrying Helena people out to their favorite resort. 'The season at the great plunge opened briskly. One bather took a header from a pedestal and skinned his nose. Memories of last season were revived later in the day when a report reached town that a man had been drowned. Patient search was rewarded, as on former occasions, by learning that an enthusiastic bather was so overcome with joy and the exhilerating effects of the me dicinal water that he swallowed a mouthful of the liquid, which caused him to gasp and thrash about to the alarm of some of the spectators. The electric lnes running out to the Broadwater also entered into the spirit of the occasion and made some quick trips, The upper line, on which the old steam motor used to haul loads of base ball cranks, made the trip from Sixth avenue and Main street out to the hotel in eight minutes. There were a number of bathers in the plunge last night. COL. SANDERS' WHISKERS. A Shower of Silver Dollars Shaken From Them. Free silver poured out of the whiskers of Col. Sanders at the National theater in Washington a few evenings ago to the man ifest delight of a fashionable audience at tracted by the feats promised by the world renouned Herrmann. Col. Sanders arrived early and secured a front seat, while all around him sat his col leagues in the senate, cabinet officers and other distinguished notables. No one enjoyed the performance more than Sanders, and no one was more mystified by the wonderful tricks of the black art pro fessor. Finally, however, Herrmann con cluded that he needed some silver dollars for one of his feats and kindly invited the audience to assist him by furnishing the necessary coins. As no one volunteered to make the loan, he singled out Sanders, and, by holding a silk hat directly under his chin the magician tugged vigorously at the Rocky mountain whiskers. He pulled them and shook the colonel's head while a shower of silver dollais poured into the hat, making a mdsioal clink dear to the heart of the free silver advocate upon whom he was operating. IIHETIIERINGTON ACQUITTED. The Consular Court Absolves Him of the Killing of Itobinson. WAsntNoroN, April 10.-News was 'e ceived at the navy department this morn ing that Lieutenant J. H. Hletherington, of the United States navy, had been acquitted of the charge of killing Robinson, the Englishman, at Yokohama, about two months ago. This action settles the ease finally, as there is no other tribunal than the consular court that has jurisdiction in such a matter. Hdtherington, it will be remembered, is the lieutenant in the navy who shot and killed lobinson, a eromin sent member of the English colony, on the arounds that the latter had been unduly intimate with Mrs. Hetherington.

The Sewretary's Returning nfitnly t Setarts His Friendhs nto Woa bk Once More. fE His Name May Yet Goe Before the Convention at Min a neapolla. r Hounded by the President, LUe lale or e land Other Into Writing lis Letter r of D)ellination,. e WiarwcTONe, April 10.-The Washington e Post, which has all along been unfriendly to Secretary Blaine when his name has been discussed in connection with the presl d dency, has discovered that there is more a Blaine talk in the air. It prints the fol lowing:. "There is undoubtedly a vigorous revival of the Blaine talk, and there are those who say that if the seoretary had felt as well physically when he wrote his recent letter declining to allow his name to be usneed at the Minneapolis convention as he does now, It would not have been written. The apparent lack of candidates against Harrison does not in the least diminish the talk of opposition to his renomination on ° the part of the senators who are opposed to him, nor on the part of that other large t class of political leaders who praise the e president and his administration, but who boldly proclaim their fears that he cannot e again be elected. It is said that both the' a Platt and the Miller men in New York in Sist that Harrison is much weaker now in i that state than he was in 1888, and say that it was only by the most pecualiar work and the most lavish expenditure of money - that it was possible to obtain for him a ma jority at that time, and they insist that s neither work nor money can be secured for Shim a second time. The opponents of Bar Srison are hoping that the Blaine talk will go on without any protest from Blaine, and that his improved health justifies them in insisting he shall put nothing in the way of I his nomination at Minneapolis, where the argument will be made that Blaine, and Blaine only, can save the party from defeat at the polls. It can be safely asserted that systematic work is now being done in the direction indicated above with a view of doing real and telling work at Minneap olis." The Post also prints an artoicle from a Baltimore paper stating that Blaine was forced to write his letter of declination be cause he was "hounded" by President Har rison and his lieutenants. It is claimed that Blaine says that Elijahb Halfod and the marshal of the District of l61am i bs. Ranedall, were his chief annoyerse. Two western United States senators yes terday had a conference with toenato Quay in regard to the move now being mates in the Interests q cfhiietaniy i ." iee atn-i s didacy forthe repsidenoy. Of one of thoas senators Benptor Quay asked the following question: "Will Blaine accept if he is nominated?" The reply was emphatfe. "He will. and I know what I am talking about. Blaine will write no more letters of deelination and is in favor of having those states that desire it instruct delegates in the interest of his candidacy." "If this is the case." responded Quay, "there is not any doubt in my nmind but that Blaine can be nominated. He can have the Penn slyvania delegation solid and there is no reason to doubt but that the New York delegation can be enlisted in his interest." The determination of the anti-Harrison men and the friends of BlaRine is now to secure all the state delegations uninstructed to Minneapolis so far as is possible. "This is the scheme that we are following up now," said a Blaine senator, "and she out look is very bright." DOCTORED BIY MULLOON, Secretary Blaine's New Departure In Pur. suit of Health. WAsBRNGToN, April 10.-The kaleidoscope of American politics is about to present the upiqae spectacle of a great stateman and possible candidate for the presidency under training in the hands of a professional wrestler. Both men occupy the very high est position in their respective fields of ac tivity, for one is the secretary of state. James G. Blaitneanud the other is the scarcely less distinguished William Mul doon. Although, naturally enough, the see retary had strong objections to having the arrangement made public, the facts leaked nut today. An intimate friend of Mr. Blaine, w..o was in the city.for several days last week, suggested to him that less medi cine and a strict observance of the laws of nature under competent direction would. make a good sound man of him again. Mr. Blaine readily assented to his proposition, but when the friend suggeeted Mr. Muldoon as a proper mentor and explained who Mr. Muldoon is, the secretary smiled. Unlder much per suasion, however, he consented to an in terview with the famous athlete. Muldoon was in Washington with a theatrical com pany and after the matinee accompanied Mr. Blaine's friend, and with considerable embarassment entered the secretary's pres ence. After an interview lasting an hour, during which Mr. Blaine was sub jected to a rigid examination as to his con dition and mode of inving, Muldoon gave minute directions, which the seoretary carefully noted down, as to diet, exercise and hours of rest.
