TARIFF TRICKERY AND
WORKINGMEN.
In conversation at the Palmer
House, Chicago, Mr. Watterson said:
“T'he plank means nothing mere nor
less than a tariff for revenue only.
We inserted the word ‘exclusively’
because it sounded better. DBatler
gave the thing away, though. IHe
was the only man there who saw
through it.”” Mr. Watterson is mis
taken. The millions of workingmen
saw instantly that *‘revenue shall be
raised exclusively for public purposes”
meant “a tariff for revenue only;” no
more and no less. Hence these
uprisings of working pzople for Mr.
DBlaine.
The Hon. Samuel Wallingford, the
leading Greenback-labor advocate in
Southern Indiana, hits the nail on the
head. He says; “The workingmen
asked the Republicans for protection
and they put sach a plaok in their
platform. They ask the Democratic
party only for the same thing, and
what did they de? Instead of taking
the declarations that their Repre
sentative, Batler, presented, they
shouted aud hissed him down. T tell
you the laboring men will elect
Blaine, and nothing can defeat him.
Blaine has always been popular with
them. They take no stock in the
slander that the press keeps pablish
ing This Eastern Independent
moveinent is going to aid the Repub
lican ticket. They are regarded by
laboring’ men 8s dangerous to
American industries.” The same
opinion prevails in this region also.
If anybody supposes that the working
people of this country do not under
stand the tariff’ question or care about
it, let him listen attentively a month
or two.
In its issue of March 14, 1883,
Puck had a full-page cartoon, en
titled ¢ The new member of Mon
opoly Lodge has tiken his ‘Firet
Degree’”’ In this cartoon Mr. Cleve
land was represented with a cable
tow around his neck and a fool's cap
with the inseription, “35c. Veto,” on
his head. Now it is beslobering this
game Mr. Cleveland with all the
polychromatic praise at its command.
« What fools these mortals be.”’
As soon as the Democrats discov
ered that the Blaine aggressive cam
paign was loaded they began to shout,
“Call off your dogs!”

A BIT OF HISTORY.
Extract from a Speech Delivered
byiHon. J, R. Lynch at Elmira
N. Y. August 12th.
Let me ‘give you a little history.
The civil rights bill came to the house
of which I wast hen a member. When
it was reported it was at a critical
time—near the close of the last
session of the Forty.third congress
We knew if the bill failed would it
vever be passed thereafter, as the
next would be a democratic congress
Many good republicans had doubts
about the constitutionality of certain
clauses. You all know that the
speaker of the house has a good aeal
of power. If friendly to a measure
it counts for a great deal. James G.
Blaine was ther speaker. I didn't
know how he stood. I was appre
hensive, but one afternoon I received
a polite note inviting me to a private
conference in the speaker’s room.
Tbat conference satisfied me that Mr.
Blaine, while he would take no undue
advantage of the opponents of the
bill, was friendiy to its passage, I
became convinced thatlthere was no
stronger friend than James G. Blaine.
Every man who has known him will
not hesitate to testify that no man
has a purer character or stands highes
in their estimation than James G.
Blaine, and the passage of that biil
was due more to James G. Blaine
than to any one mau.
Died at a Ripe Old Age.
WasniNaron, August 15.
A colored woman named Chloe
Ashby died in this city to-day,wkho is
said to have been 116 years old.
Her relatives say that she was born
in 1768, on the farm of General
Henderson, at Dumfries, Virginia,
and that she lived as a slave until
1851, when she purchased her free
dom. She was the mother of seven
children, two of whom survive her—
sons, 79 and 71 years old respect

: ANY QUESTIUN.
The Lives of the Arctic Survivors Pre

Their Comrades—Result of the Au
topsy on the Remains of Lieu
tenant Kislingbury—&¢., &c.
ALAS, TOO TRUE!
Cannibalism in the Polar Regions Proved.
NEW YOoßrk, Aug. 14.—1 t is established
beyond all question that cannibalism was
resorted to by the starving men of the
Greely expedition, and shows that the
lives of those saved were preserved only
by eating the dead bodies of their com
panions. Lieutepant Kislingbury’s rela
tives were filled with horrible doubts as
soon as they learned that disclosures had
been made in New York regarding can
nibalism ameng the members of the expe
dition, and they determined to learn the
trath by exhuming the remains, and
having them examined by competent
physicians.
The services of L. A. Jefirey, under
taker, were secured, and this morning,
with the assistance of five men, he accom
plished the work of taking up the casket
from its resting piace. This was done in
the presence of Assistant Superintendent
Mandeville, and the remains were taken,
as unearthed, to a chapel near the en
trance of the cemetery. There the body
was taken out and found to consist of
little but bones. Aflidavits of physicians
show that nearly all the flesh had been
stripped from the bones, the remainder ot
the body only weighing fifty pounds.
Autopsy Atflidavit.
Rocuaester, N. Y., Aug. 14, 1884 —
Charles Buckley, M. 1., and Frederick
A. Mandeville, M. D., of Rochester, being
sworn, made the following statement :
We hereby certify that at the request
of the representatives of the Post- Express,
of Rochester, and of John F., Frand W.
and William H. Kislingbury, of Roches
ter, we this morning, in the chapel of
Mount Hope cemetery, made an autopsy
or post-mortem examination of the body
of the late Lieutenant Frederick IM. Kis
lingbury. We found the body in an iron
casket. On the lid being removed it was
taken from the casket and placed upon a
table. It was packed in cotton battingand
encased with cotton cloth tied with strings.
On removing this it was found wrapped
in a woolen blanket the whole length.
Removing this the body was in view.
Its weight approximated, in our opinion
about fifty pounds. On examination of
the head no signs of wounds or injuries
were visibie. The skin was not broken.
The ears and nosc were intact. The eyes
were sunken and wasted. The hair was
thick, and from five to six incles long.
The face was covered with a heavy red
dish beard and mustache. On the right
side of the upper jaw there were seven
teeth, the last molar being gone. On the
left side three teeth were gone, one incisor
and two molars; on lower jaw two teeth,
molars, were gone, The skin and mus
cles of the interior portion of the face and
neck were intact. From the upper por
tion of the sternum and clavic to the lower
border of the fifth rib on the left side
the skin and muscles had all been re
moved down to the ribs on the right side.
The skin and muscles down to the lower
border of the last rib were gone. There
were two -openings between the fourth
and fifth intercestal spaces into the thor
acic cavity. The skin and muscles on the
anterior portion of the abdomen were in
tact to the crest of illium or pelvic bones ;
museles and skin of anterior and pos
terior of the thighs were entirely removed
except the skin on the anterior portion of
the knee joints; muscles and skin of left
leg removed to within three inches of
ankle joint. On right leg skin and mus
clesremoved to withinfive inches of ankle
joint. Both feet were intact; toes all
present. There was no vestage of integu
ment of the muscles on either arm, in
cluding the muscles of the shoulder
blades to the wrist joints, except on the
right forearm, the interosseus membrane
remaining. I'lesh and muscles on both
hands intact, The examination of the
postericr portion of body showed that the
skin and muscles of the back from the
seventh cervical vertebra had been dis
sected, or cut completely away, down to
the bones with the exception of pieces of
skin from two to three inches square on
each side of the upper pertion of the
secerum. The pelvic bones were
completely denuded. All the ex
tremities were attached to the
body by ligaments only. No fractures of
the body were discovered. We found
all the organs of the thorax and abdomen
present, There was evidence of recent
inflamation of the stomach and bowels.
The large intestines were distended with
hardened lumps of fecal matter in which
there was hair, moss, or woody fibre. In
our opinion the flesh removed was cut
away with some sharpinstrument. That
remaining on the feet, hands and face
showed no signs of decomposition.
None of the Survivers to Be Interviewed.
PorrsmouTH, N. 11.,, Aug. 14.—Dr.
Claborne, of the United States Navy,
who is in charge of the Arctic surviyors,
says all the men will soon be in perfect
health. No definite time at which the
survivors will be discharged has been de
cided upon, but the whole matter rests in
the discretion of Surgeon Hurd. Under
strict orders from the Secretary of the
Navy, none of the survivors will be al
lowed to be interviewed.

Axnarornts, Md., Ang. 14.—General

family, visitec the grave of his son after
the burial. Lieutenant Peck, United
States Navy, a son-in-law of General
Lockwood, said the subject of exhuming
the body had never been thought of by
th¥family and that the burial was final.
The Death of Private Charles Henry,
NEw Yorg, Aug. 14 —Dr. Nagle, dep
uty registrar of vital statistics, to-day sent
a letter to the Secreta~y of the Navy ask
ing for the facts about the death of Private
Charles B. Henry. His death is recorded
in the bureau in which a permit to bury
the body in Cypress Hill cemetery was
obtained as being due to starvation in the
Arctic regions. If he was shot the regis
trar desires to know it, that the records
may be corrected. Coroner Robinson in
the meanwhile has authority to exhume
the body without referring to the Bureau
of Vital Statistics.
AT HOME
Newburyport Celebration in Honor of tne
Dead Hero,
NeEwsuvuryrorT, Mass.,, August 14—
The greatest day in the history of New
buryport, that upon which her inhabit”
ants assembled to do honor to to her now
illustrious fellow-citizen, Lieutenant
Greely, was ushered in by the firing of a
national salute and the ringing of church
bells, which brought crowds of people to
the public places. The decorations by
the city government consists of four
triumphal arches. It is estimated that at
least 15,000 strangers are in the city.
From his mother’s house to the City
Hall Lieutenant Greely was the constant
recipient of applause and cheers, and he
responded to them with nods and smiles.
At the City Hall Lieutenant Greely said
he was delighted to go back to his old
home, and was sorry that ill health pre--
vented his surviving comrades from en
joying the festivities. The first bit of
American coast he saw onreturning from
the Arctic was that surrounding his na
tive city.
Along the ling everywhere Greely was
received with tremendous enthusiasm,
At 1 o’clock the procession reached the
i’rand stand, The carriage containing
ieutenant Greely was driven to the
stand, and as he stepped to the platform
he was given a grand reception from the
throng. The band then played ‘‘Home
Again.” Mayor Johnson then addressed
Licutenant Greely as foilows:
In behalf of the citizens of your native
city 1 welcome you home. From our
hearts we rejoice at your safety and re
turn. The honor you have brought to
us, as well as the fame you have achieved
for yourself, can never fade. So londg as
the world shall exist so Jong will endure
the name of Lieutenant A. W. Greely, of
Newburyport. Again we welcome you.
Licutenant Greely then arose and for
several minutes the applause continued.
After it had subsided he said:
It is not possible for me to put in words
an expression ot what now I feel at such
a reception as thiz. On all previous ce
casions when I have returned here from
my experience, first as a private in the
war and then as an officer in the war and
as an officer in the regular service, I have
always experienced the most kindly treat
ment from this, my native city.
On my late return to civilization and
my country the first part of the coast to
meet my eve was Newburyport, its hills,
its pires and its houses. In my passage
to and fro through the streets of the city
to-day, words faii to express my feelings
or utter my thanks to youall. As I tel
egraphed from St. Johns, had I consulted
my own feelings, I should have preferred
a more quiet occasion, but since you
would have it like this, there is nothing
tor me to do but once more to thank you.
The band played “Home Again,”” and
Mayor Johnson introduced Governor
Robinson, who welcomed Lieutenant
Greely in behalf of Massachusetts. He
was warmly received. The exercises
closed at 1:40 by the band playing, “Hail
to the Chief.’

DEMOCRATIC ROW.
Disvenslons That Will Give Luzerne to the
Republicans,
WiILKES-BARRE, Pa., Aug. 15. The
Democrats of the Third Legislative dis
trict, this county, arc in a terribly de
moralized state, which threatens to end
in the defeat of the Democratic candi
date for Senator, to succeed Coxe, and
the loss of a Representative in the lower
house. About a month ago Representa
tive Hines, who is a candidate for Sera
tor, sprung a trap upon his opponent for
the place, Phil. Callery, by having the
chairman of the District Committee issue
a call for a delegate election and a con
vention to select Senatorial conferees.
In the meantime Hines notified all his
friends of the approaching clection, but
the chairman in his call only gave forty
eight hours’ notice. The result was that
Callery was unable to get his friends to
the polls, and lines secured the confer
ces. Callery claimed fraud, and laid his
grievances before the district committee.
The committee yesterday authorized a
new call for delegate clections and a con
vention, but Hines and Callery refuse to
recognize the call, thinking a bird in
hand worth two in the bush. The result
will now be two sets of conferees apply
ing for admission to the Senatorial con
ference and two candidates for the As
sembly. The party is hopelessly divided
on the Presidency, many Democrats sig
nifying their intention to vote for Blaine.

COLORED LABORERS TO PA
RADE.
To Join Their White Brethern in a
Labor Demonstration.
New York, August 15.
The lecture room of the Africn
Methodist Episcopal church in Salli.
van street was crowded last evening
when the committee appointed last
week to confer with the Central
Labor Union made its report. They
met a committee from the labor or
ganization on Sunday last, and
agreed to take part in the lsbor
demonstration to be held on Septem
ber 1. The colored laborers are to
parade under the name of the Wen
dell Phillips Organization, No. 2.
They are promised second position in
the line of mareh, and will head the
second division. The committee, in
making their report last evening,
said that they were received with
open arms, and judging from the
courtesy shown them at the confer
ence on Sunday last, the best of feel
ing exists between the white and
colored men who toil for their daily
bread.
Ex-Congressman Robert B. Elliott
2 Dead.
- New Orreans, Aug. 15.
Robert B. Elliott, a well known
colored man of considerable ability,
died here this morning of malarial
fever. He was born in Massachu
selts and removed to South Carolina
during the period of reconstruction.
There he became Speaker of the
Ilouse of Representatives, and after
ward a member of Congress, but re
signed to accept the Attorney-Gener
alship of the State. After the col
lapse of his party in South Carolina,
Mr. Elliott removed to New Orleans,
where he became special agent for
the Tressary Department. Unfor
tunately allying himself with the ep
position to Kellogg, he was removed,
and since that time bad picked up a
precarious livelihood as a lawyer in
the police coarts.
JOACHIM AND THE BARBER,
Joachim, the celebrated violin player,
tells a good story about himself. ¥lc has
a heavy head of hair, except one spot,
which he can easily hide by not cutting
oft a particular lock. One day in London
he went to the barber’s to have his hair
trimmed. The barber wished to take
this lock off, but Joachim insisted on
its remaining, whereupon the barber ex
claimed: “Let me cut it off; it makes you
look like one of those old Dutch tiddlers.”’
The barber had, of course, no idea whom
he was shearing.
