Johnson has been removed from the

once removed, but afterwards re-entered
tbe service, and maintained his position
upon the representation that he had
been wounded in various battles of the
war, and that his health was thereby
impaired. Recent charges of fraudulent
accounts, which were substantiated, led
to an investigation of his military ser
vice, which showed that he did not par
ticipate in the battles alleged, and that
his claim as to wounds was entirely un
founded.

STARTLING ALLEGATION.
Is the Prohibition Candidate for Gov
ernor Elected In Vermont?
New York, Sept. 25.—Bradley B.
Smalley, a member of the Democratic
national committee, and late candidate
for governor of Vermont, announced
tonight that he had made a discovery,
which, if it is confirmed, gives to Allen,
the Prohibitionist candidate, the office
of governor of Vermont.
Smallpy said that while Allen re
ceived 1200 of the 1500 votes, he was the
only candidate for the position who is
eligible, if the conclusions of Cnairman
Carter, of the Republican, and Chair
man Harrity, of the ivmocratic national
committee, are correct.
By advice of counsel, both chairmen
have written a letter advising any per
son who may have been nominated pre
sidential electors, aud who are directors
of national banks, or who hold public
offices of trust or profit to withdraw for
fear that they might prove ineligible.
"The fact is," said Smalley, "that
under this construction bi th Fuller and
myself were ineligible, for we are both
directors of a national bank. The con
stitution of the state of Vermont is
very rigid on this point. Besides affect
ing Fuller's election, it will also debar
several members of the Vermont legis
lature from being sworn In."

POLITICS AND CHOLERA.
DR. DIXON'S STRICTURES ON THE
QUARANTINE Sy.STESI.
A Diatribe ln Which Tammany and the
Steamship Company Are Jointly
Accused by the Excita
ble Divine.
New Yobk, Sept. 25.—Tho Rev. Dr.
Thouißß Dixon, before his sermon today,
epoke of the leaeou American! should
learn from theappearance of the cholera.
He said in part: "The sudden ap
pearance of Asiatic cholera carries with
it a startling message. We have been
taught that pot-house politics is poor
training for health officials. We may
say what we will about the efficiency of
our quarantine; its methods have been
a jumble of stupidity and brutality, with
scarcely a trace of executive ability.
"Our conductof this business not only
has been a disgrace to the American
nation, but a stigma on the history of
the Anglo Saxon race. And for thiß we
must thank our pot-house politicians
whose life principle is 'to the victor be
longs the spoils.'
"We have learned that there are great
steamship companies who don't hesi
tate to sell the health of 62,000.000 peo
ple in America for the price of the steer
age passage of a few hundred poverty
stricken refugees. KveTy city in Amer
ica ie at the mercy of New York.
Let our brethren in other cities re
member this when they apologize for
and excuse the villainies of Tammany
hall for Ihe sake of votes to be gained
at the polls in the presidential election.
Tammany hall is not simply a local dis
grace. It may be a national scourge.
What is the sense in moving heaven and
earth to quarantine a few victims Of
peßt-ridden Hamburg and at the same
time open wide our gates to John Most
and Bergman ?
"Why buy an island to quarantine
500 healthy American citizens, and open
the gates to thousands who formed the
mobs at Haymarket square, delivered
New Orleaas to the reign of assassins,
and called forth the army in Pennsylva
nia and New York to restore order ?
"Does any thinking man doubt, in
view of the recent evßnts, that these
steamship companies are in collusion .
with tbe prisons and poor-houses of
Europe?"
