Cut in the height of the present nobby fashion for
young men. Young men like different shaped garments

Friend Charley:?God knows only how I have ?uf'
fered for the past eighteen months regarding the claim.
? and I now propose to make a clean breast of the whole
affair, throwing myself on your gf-nerocity, with the
, beiiet that a changed course of life in me will see you
righted in a few weeks more and every cent due
promptly paid. Hhepherd received a certificate for

deducted 10 per cent from it, ?nd paid the balance.

Since which time I have decivcd you and lied
about the matter in order to rain time and re
store the money. I am now in a condition to
. do the right thing by you and only ask
silence on your part until that is accomplished.
It was this thing tuat coutiLuaily overshadowed me,
, and together with the fact that I was often without a
r cent, with others depending upon me for food, that it
drove me mad. \ou have been to me a good friend. I
| have acied d?n mean; I have injured you, wronged
you deeply, and have no right to ask a favor. A man is
' defeuseless who has no excuse to offer for a crime. But
? strong in the belief that I can repair the injury, I put
, pen to paper to tell you of my own shame. On the 5th

day (the 5th) of each succeeding month 1 will send you
the same amount. You know how I am situated, and I
r know I can settle this way. I will draw the notes un ou
Tuesday, although it is not necessary, as I am fully
' resolved in the matter. I know how you must feel when
1 you read this letter. A great load is lifted from my
mind. Show it to your brother Phil. I have deceived

To Chas. T. Sanderson.
the theory
which the defense will endeavor to maintain by
proof at the trial Is that Barton was the assailant,
that Soteldo did not visit him with murderous intent,
that Soteldo when be went to the Republican
office had a copy of the papers given above In his
hand, and that when he showed them to Barton
the latter became angry and made the assault.
The defense propose to establish a motive for the
| assault by producing the letters.
A Card from ?Ir. Barton.
To the Editor of The Evening Star:
CoL Christie, counsel for A. C. Soteldo, lias filed
a request in court relative to certain papers bearlag
on financial transactions between Arthur
Shepherd, C. T. Sanderson and myself, which occurred
six years ago an 1 have long since been settled.
It is evidently done to smirch my character
before the publlo, and can have no possible bearing
In the coming trial of A. C. Soteldo.
Respectfully,
Clarence M. Barton.

After the Lots of the Jeannette.
LIEUT. DANENHOWER'S ACCOUNT OF THE PREPARATION
FOR THE BOAT JOURNEY.
At the opening of the Jeannette court of inquiry
this morning Lieut. Danenhower was asked to
state, in narrative form, what preparations were
made for the boat Journey after the sinking of the
Jeannette, and b?gan: "On June 14th, 1881, the assortment
of the provisions and clothing recovered
from the ship was commenced, also the outfit and
preparations of the boats for the Journey. There
were five boats saved from the wreck, namely:
first and second cutters, whale boat, iron dingy
and wooden dingy. Each person had a knapsack
and sleeping bag of dear and seal skin, In most
cases of seal skin and single, but in some cases they
were double. Each single bag was large enough
for a person to slip Into and lie at full length. The
fur was inside and the bag was -covered with
tanned seal skin or cotton drilling on the outside,
so that the snow could be readily brushed off. A
half blanket was also allowed to each person.
Each tent was nine feet by six on the floor space,
and was to be occupied by seven persons In their
Bleeping bags. There were Ave tents and an office
tent?No. 1, Capt De Long and six others: No. 2,
, Lieut. Chlpp and six others; No. 3, Lieut Danenhower
and six others; No. 4, Chief Engineer Melville
and five others; No. 6, Dr. Ambler and Ave
others. The office tent, at night, was occupied
by a portion of No. 1 party. Each tent
was provided with a fire pot which contained a
large copper kettle, (3 gallons capacity), and a
stew pan above It; below was a circular lamp.
The mess gear when not In use was stowed In the
' big kettle and consisted of a tin cup, a tin pan and
a spoon for each person.* Each knapsack contained
one undershirt, one pair drawers,
one pair woolen stockings, two pair blanket
nips, (outside stockings), one pair sealskin boots,
one spare cap, one spare pair of gloves, one comforter,
one wind guard, (a broad piece of leather to
i protect the weather side of the face In case of nei
cesslty), one spare pair of snow goggles, one plug
I tobacco and one pipe, 200 safety matches, 25 wind
matches, soap at discretion; another pair of seali
skin boots was allowed to be carried In the sleeping
bag, thus allowing each person three pairs of
> boots. Each person was allowed one suit of
clothes, those he stood In, either skin or other
kind, as he might prefer. The spare clothing was
gathered together, and each person was allowed
to make such selections as he considered would
, improve what lie already possessed, the object being
to leave the poorest articles behind, as we
could not carry them alL"
He then gave an account ot the provisions saved
and how they were stowed In the sleds. The
sledges when loaded complete weighed about as
follows: No. 1 sled, 1,500 lbs.; No. ?, 1,800; No. 8,
1,200; No. 4,1,800; No. 5,1,800.

getting ready for trial
Mr. Bliss, of counsel for the government In the
star route case3 against Brady, Dorsry et aL, has
obtained from the clerk'a office 275 subpoenas, of
which 125 are original and 250 blanks for copies.
THE STAR ROUTE BRIBKRY RKPORT.
The star route Jury bribery report has not been
made the subject of a Cabinet conference as has
been published. The Attorney General has read
the report, and It Is now being transcribed. It
will, it Is thought, be given to the public in a day
or two. It is stated that the report is withheld
from publication In order that plans contemplate
lng the arrest of Messrs. Fall, Dlcksou and cth r*
may be matured. A reporter who made inquiry
regarding this statement at the Department or
Justice tnls morning was Informed that t ie officials
of the department could say notntng ab ?ut
It, as It would tie very Improper to announce It if
such plans were belnc considered.
The documents contained in the report of Mr
Wells. SDeclal attorn y to Investigate the star
route bribery charges, submitted to the Attorney
General, It is undt rst >od, fully confirm the assertion
already made by the Attorney General,
that persons in the employ of the Department of
Justice had b?cn used as spies by tho defendants,
and that these spies are Implicated in the attempt
to corrupt jurors on behalf of the defendants.
The report and affidavits also show that
a conspiracy existed to defame the Department
of Justice and blemish the
reputation of the Attorney General. The
result will be, It is thought, that the Department
of Justice will be burdened with another
trial oi a number of persons for consplr icy.

such an Institution in the most vivid colors, and
showed that the fame reasons which have given i
the boys such an institution apply with equal
force to girls, and that no delay should b? had
upon this matter. The Commissioners heard them
through and then expressed themselves as in entire
sympathy with the women on this question, !
promising to do all they could to bring about action
by congress. They had, heretofore, brought !
up this subject before Congress, and would con- .
tinuetoaoso hereafter until something tangible
grows out of it This will be one of the first matters
to be brought before Congress at its next session.
