'HOW THEY ALL SPEND THEIR TIME. The Martyred President's Widow a Terj Graceful Writer. E. B. HAIES IS OFTO IN THE CITY tCORBESPOXDEXCE OP THE EISPATCU.l Cleveland, O., Dec. 25. When the evening train for the East on the Lake Shore Railroad was about to leave the bis union depot at 5 o'clock this afternoon, a lady dressed in deep black came harrying down the stairs. She was overburdened with bun dles of all shapes and sizes, and with diffi culty made her way to the ticket window, where she asked for a ticket to Mentor. "Seventy-five cents, olease," said the clerk, as he pushed a tiny bit of white pasteboard toward her. Just then a young man, about whose substantial form was buttoned a heavy fur-embroidered overcoat, came dash ing down the stairs. "Too late, am I, mother?" he asked. ".No, not if you hurry." Three shining half dollars were pushed in through the narrow little window. "Make it two tickets to Mentor, please," said the young man, and the clerk quickly found another little card, upon which he stamped the date and place of sale with amazinc rap idity. Then Mrs. Lncretia E. Garfield and lier son, James E., hurried by the gateman, picked their way through the big crush of cars and engines, and found seats in the ac commodation train on the farther track. The Garfields' Merry Christmas. "There will be a merry Christmas at Lawnfield," said bluff Depot Marshal O'Dell, as he returned to his post of dnty after seeing that his guests were on the cor rect tram. This little incident, together with the fact that two of the late President's sons in this city were only yesterday admitted to prac tice in the United States Circuit Court, "brings prominently to mind the fact that Cleveland and two or three of its surround ing villages are the homes of very many peop whose lives were only recently sub jects of national attention, and who pass up and down the streets of the city with as little concern as if the roof of tne White House had never arched over them. Mrs. Garfield's home at Mentor is always over crowded during the holiday season. The old schoolmates at Hiram are remembered first of all, and it is seldom that a Christmas passes by with less than 20 or 30 of the friends, who were also friends when James A. Garfield and Lucretia Rudolph were class associates at the old college, gathered anout the table. airs. Garfield's Sons and Daughter. Irving and Abram are home from Will Jams College, and Mr. and Mrs. J. Stanley Brown (the latter once Mollie Garfield) will come from Washington, and Harry and James will go down from here. The law partnership which the elder two of the late President's sons have formed seems to have been a fortunate one. Both had delved into the intricacies of modern practice be fore the crazy Guiteau fired his cruel shot. The hitter scenes that followed finally over, the two young men turned their attention to the law and studied most earnestly. They were admitted to practice two or three years ago and to-day have a cozy office in Senator H. B. Payne' bi; block at the lower end of Superior street. Both are regarded as ex ceptionally bright young men. Their Drac tice has increased until to-day they are fa miliar figures in every court room in the city. James . Garfield, who resides with his mother at Mentor, is to be married in a few mouths hence to the daughter of General John Newell, President ol the Lake Shore nud Michigau Southern Bailwav. The young lovers have been engaged ior several months, and Mr. Garfield pays frequent vis its to his betrothed in Chicago. Young Garfield Breaks a Dead Lock. He has an affinity lor politics and enjoys the distinction of introducing into the Twentieth District Republican Congress ional Convention held in this city last Sep tember, a resolution that succeeded in breaking a seven days' deadlock. He was elected to the convention as a delegate from Mentor township in Lake county. After til days of idle balloting be proposed that the convention adopt the Australian system of voting. In suggesting this plan young Mr. Garfield made a speech that reminded many ot his listeners of the elder Garfield in his early days. His resolution was adopted, and 12 hours later the convention had decided upon a candidate and ad journed. Harry A. Garfield, who was married to Miss Mason, of this city, several months ago, lives at 51 Windsor avenue, in com fortable, thouch unostentatious, style. He is interested in many local charities and is secretary ol the Cleveland Humane Society, an organization to which he devotes much attention. He is a familiar figure about the Common Pleas Court room, and is re garded as an attorney of many original ideas and much native eloquence. Occa sionally Mr. and Mrs. J. Stanley Brown are seen upon the streets. Sirs. Mollie Brown, lice Garfield. They are often at Mentor, where an hour's 1 ide brings them to the city, The younger boys, Irving and Abram, frequently spend a day or two here during the recesses at "Williams. Mrs. Garfield has disposed of her splendid residence on Prospect street in this city. She found the bouse much too large, and discovered that she could live a much more contented lite atLiwnfield, in Mentor. She was offered a valuable piece of property near the Mentor farm, and also a money consid eration for the city residence, and willingly let it go. It is still necebsary, however, to point it out to hundreds of Visitors to the city, who come here solely to look upon the great mausoleum at Lake "View, and the home where the family lived for several years after General Garfield's death. Mrs. Garfield's correspondence is some thing enormous. She is fairly overwhelmed with letters from every land and clime, and every imaginable topic is touched upon. She is a charming writer, and every com munication she receives is given careful at tention. A Letter toy Mrs. Garfield. While in conversation with Hon. Amos Townsend to-night, the latter handed vour correspondent the following letter which was sent him in acknowledgement of the creat work he did in connection with the dedication ol Garfield's Memorial last May. The letter is thoroughly characteristic of Mrs. Garfield: tfo Hon. Amos Townsend, President or the Gar field .Memorial Association. Cleveland O.: Dear SIB The work which was begun in Cleveland nine years ago, and which was taken up and earned forward with Jo vmg zeal by the gentlemen who were made Trustees of the Memorial Association, is now accomplished. A monument stands in its majesty and strength, an expression or a people's will to do honor t Geneial Garfield's memory, and liy beautiful and impressive ceremony lias been dedicated as a testimonial alike to bim who has lclt us and to the loyalty and devotion of those V ho remained. Where art and exertion and love have done fco much, it is scarcely possible for those who bare been merely onlookers, though feeling the deepest Interest, to convey to this Association, and through it to the people, adequate thanks lor the effort made and the result achieved, lint for ruvself and my children, I earnestly desire that tlioso who have so faithfully wrought mav know in Fomo mcn-uro our ap lirtciaiion tjj the bnorn labor iind our deep a.id lasting gratliailc. Yours, ino-ttrnlv, Mentok. O. I.ucHirriA It Gaiifikld. Ex-PresidcntHajos' V1UU to Clctoland. Mrs. Garfield comes to Cleveland often, ut seldom for more than a few hours. Mentor is only 24 miles away, and is easily accessible by two railroads at all hours of the day. Ex-President Hayes comes down from Fremont very frequently, and rarely escapes an invitation to talk for publication. If the interviewer seeks some iulormatiou of a business or social nature, he finds the ex President a charming conversationalist. If, instead, a political opinion or prophecy is sought, the reporter might as well address his questions to the spbynx. "My dear sir," says "the General in his most affable manner, "I made up my mind years ago not to talk politics to anyone. There is nothing to be gained by "it for either you or me. If I can be of any help to you in another direction, I am at your service." President Eayes has one son in Cleveland Webb C. Hayes who lives in handsome bachelor apartments at the Hast End. Prom time to time gossips associate his name with that of the clerk in the Probate Court, and maintain that the young man will not much longer remain bachelor, but time serves to brush all these prophesies aside as idle gos sip. Webb C. Hayes is one of the keenest bus iness men in the city. He is treasurer of the National Carbon Company, a stock holder in the Walker Manufacturing Com pany, and is interested in a dozen other profitable business concerns. F. H. Bbunell, E. Bates. BOTTLED LIGHTNING. A MAIHE GENIUS WHO HAS A CISTEEK FULL ON TAP, "With Which Ho Entertains Visitor Draw ing His Supply From the Clouds as Franklin Did An Electrical Exhibition That Startled a Party of Hunters. Chebbyfield, Me., Dec 25. Away out on the Honlton road, 20 miles from the nearest church and 10 miles from any post office, "Uncle Sile" Leatherbee divides his time between hunting bears and picking blueberries, following the former vocation the year round and the latter in the season when blueberries are ripe. He is 75 years old, 75 inches tall, and, being ''double toothed," he says he has 75 teeth in his head, one hav ing been knocked out in a fight with bruin. Years ago "Uncle Sile" was a lumberman and general adventurer, and he says he cut, hauled out and set up the first telegraph poles set between Baltimore and Washing ton. At this time he knew Prof. Morse well. Once there was a talk of a partnership be tween the two. He still retains many enrious ideas gained from contact with the electricians whom he met half a century ago. Among these is a keen interest in the advances which have been made of late in galvanism, electricity and magnetism. All the books and papers which treat these subjects come to him through the mails. One of his hobbies is that ot electric lighting. Last winter he constructed several powerful storage bat teries, and had them carefully put away in one end of the cellar vnder his little cabin of a honse. Wheh any stray hunter or berry-picker strolled his way and asked what he was do ing, he replied: "Wait until it gets hot next summer, and you willsee. Summercame, and when all the blueberry plains were in green fruitage, Uucle Sile ran a tall iron lightning rod up from one peak of his house and connected the lower end with his storage batteries by means of a stout copper wire. Often when a dark cloud sailed overhead and rain began to patter on his roof, bright sparks were seen to go skipping down the rod en route for the storage bat teries. One night a large party of ifew York and Boston sportsmen were out on the plain: in front of Uncle Site's place when they all dropped their guns and stood awe-struck at the sight before them. The house which a minute before, was in darkness, now was ablaze with light from ridge-nole to ground sill. A gaudy arc of light leaped into the air from one end of the house and settled down upon the other end, while both the windows and solitary door were framed in such a glow as was never before seen in Cherryfield. The fact was that Uncle Sile had let his "bottled lightning," as he termed it, loose that night ior the first time, and so he told the wondering gunners when they came run ning ud out of breath, doubtful whether they should have to put out a fire or lay a gho'st. According to his way of reckoning he had electricity enough in his storage bat teries to last him from then until the mid dle ot June, when the thunder showers would enaDle him to lay in a new supply. As to cost, he said the whole affair had not "spiled a $100 bill," and it was good for years to come. CARTED AWAY THE SAFE. Burglars Poorly Rewarded for a Very Laborious Job. Tuscola, III., Dec. 25. The store of A. A. Stevens was entered by a gang of ex pert burglars at Hayes, and to make their work less liable to detection they loaded his large safe on a truck and hauled it over half a mile from town, where it was blown open with dynamite and rifled of its con tents. The sale did not contain much money at the time, and they were not very well rewarded lor their labor. The burglars were the same parties who broke down the doors of the Illinois Cen tral toolhonse and procured crowbars ani other instruments to aid them. Stevens' store has been burglarized three times with in a year. NO SALOONS ALLOWED. Suing for Possession of a Lot Under a Re striction Clause. .JIabtinsnille, Ind., Dec 23. Thirty years ago Franklin Landers, of Indianapo lis, platted an addition to the vitugeof Brooklyn, this county. One of the stipula tions in every deed to a lot sold was a clause prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors. During all this time no one has dared vio late the terms of sale until the 5th of this month, when Samuel H. Orr obtained a re tailer'u license and opened a saloon in a building on one of said lots. Landers now sues for possession of'the lot in fee simple, according to the terms of his deeds. As staple as sugar and equally if not more useful is Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup. Price25 cents.

A Less Roseate View Expressed of the West Virginia Field. THE PRODUCTION IS DECREASING. Reports to the Contrary Are Said to be Made for a Purpose. WELLS DRILLING IN TARIODS FIELDS rSFZCUI. TZLXOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.1 Cobaopolis, Dee. 25. Some drilling is being done in this field, and the wells brought in by W. L. Mellon yesterday in dicate a somewhat wider belt than hereto fore supposed. These wells were the Kerr No. 3, which is showing for 75 barrels per day, and the Beggs No. 1, which looks like a 60-barreler. Gailey Bros. & Mellon's No. 1, on the machine shop lot, has reached the sand and looks good for about 20 barrels per day. A prominent producer in the West Vir ginia field said to The Dispatch scout to day that he was not fully in accord witb the ideas expressed by Mr. Hartwell, the coal operator, in his New York interview. He intimated that the coal man's knowledge of the field situation in the Southwest was very limited, and that the scout from whom he derived his information was without ques tion closely allied with the Standard Oil Company. Continuing, he said: "Take the history of the Southwest, especially at Bel mont and Eureka, where three or four indi viduals have made a little money out of the limited prolific pool; but go outside of this, and what have been the re sults? Where they get one 10-barrel well 15 dry holes have been drilled. A good 10 barrel well is a rarity, and dry holes the order of things. Another thing, and I pro fess to know what I am talking about, wells struck in this field are reported four times as large as they really are, being boomed by owners to sell property. In my opinion, there is not over 5,000 barrels of oil pro duced in the West Virginia fields to-day, and the wav the wells are declining there will not be over 3,000 barrels by April 1. The West Virginia field has always been boomed by land sharks, lease scalpers and those on the bear side of the market. "The statement of the Brady's Bend coal operator, that the producers are working energetically, is entirely erroneous, as the number of idle drillers and tool dressers will testify. There are more idle drillers at present than at any time in the past three years." Oil Operations at Mannington. Mannington McClondand Davis No. 2, on the Sutton farm, is spudding. Mur phy & Co. have a rig on the Sutton. The South Penn Oil Company have a rig about completed for their No. 4, on the Susan Yost farm. The same company are build ing a rie lor their No. 2, P. W. Yost farm. The McCloud well on the Morgan farm is through the sand and dry. This will shut off drilling to tbc southwest of present de velopments. The Fisher Oil Company, on the Z. E. Yr.st, will reach the pay next week. Tne South Penn Oil Company will complete a well on the James Yost farm next week, xne same company nave aooui 1,000 feet of oil in the hole and are still drill ing on the Jones farm. Operations in this vicinity are falling off rapidly, owing to the almost impassaDle condition oi tne roaas, and also to a tendency of operators to wait for better prices for oil. Progress of Drillinc; at Bakerstown. Bakebstown Frederick, on the Gar row farm, is in the hundred-foot. The Pat tent farm well is down 300 feet The Butcher Oil Company have a well in the hundred foot, on the Bichards farm, and are down 1,300 feet on the Mrs. Kernihan farm. Mellon, on the-Mahan, is down 1,200 feet. Millison & Co., on the William Jack farm, are down 1,100 feet. The Chartiers Oil Company are down 300 feet on the Robert Jack iarm. Christy & Crosby, on the Absalom Monks, expected" the sand yesterday. Ireland & Hughes are building a rig on the Martin Monks farm. The Allegheny syndicate has finished a dry hole on the W.'J. Canning, but intend to drill still deeper in hopes of finding something further down. The Crawford "well, on the Hazlett, is in the sand, with no signs of oil. They have broken the jars and are fishing at present., The Carpenter well, on the little George Hays farm, is drilling. Marsh & Co. Are Casing. Zelienople Marsh & Co., on the Mul ler farm, are 45 feet in the hundred-foot and are casing. A Fair MUlerstovra Well in Prospect. Millerstown On the Myers farm, Tittey Bros. & Co. No. 2 is about 15 feet in the sand and showing for a very lair well. Another 'Well for Saxonbunr. Saxqnbttbg There is very little doing in this field. 'The only thing of interest is the McMichaels & Co. No. 1, on the James Logan farm, which is a couple of bits in the sand and flowing. It looks as though this would be a good well. DTTEBESTIKG TO IKGALLS. A Special Election That Slay Gain or Loso Him a Vote. Concobdia, Kan., Dec. 25. The Ke publicans of tne Thirty-second Senatorial district of Kansas met in delegate conven tion and nominated John W. Sbcafer, of Concordia, for Senator. Great interest is taken in the special election in both Cloud and Bcpubllc counties, owing to the fact that a vote may be gained or lost for the re turn ot John J. Ingalls to the United States Senate. The People's party placed in nomination F. C. Wheeur, a farmer, who is pledged to do all in his power to defeat the senior Sen ator from Kansas. The campaign, which is to exten i through next week, promises to be an extr ely exciting one A UVEEY STABLE HOW. It Results in the Murder of One Man and the 'Wounding of Another. New York, Dec. 25. This afternoon an altercation took place in a livery stable, during which Michael Gal i van, the pro prietor, shot and killed James Cummings, 27 years old. Cummings was shot in the left eye Galivan also shut Edward Hurley, 23 years old, in the left cheek. Hurley was removed to the Roosevelt Hospital. Gala vin was arrested. He claims he did the shooting in self defense, and that Cummings attacked him with a stick, breaking his nose and one of his ribs.
