i Nplcy Letter From lien. Wadr.
Cleveland, May 2.-The Leader Aolorrow
will contain the following letter
rotn the Hon. B. F. Wade:
Jwrwaon, April yo, 1877,
u the Hdilvr of the leader.
i nonce in your paper oi to-uay, two
rticleM relating to myself, copied from
>e New York Trikme. Thi firnl purorU
tofcomo from Mr. Ward Lamon, of
rashington, formerly Marshal of the
Strict, stating in substance that someme
during Mr. Lincoln's adminhitraon
a oo nl pi racy was formed bf the Reublicans
in Congre*i, ooposeu to hix
flministration,to depose iiim from the
residency, and put either Fremont or
ivself in bis place aa Dictator; that a
lemorandnm of the compact wa? made
t the time that; a copy of it was in the
andii of Mr. Cha*e, and by him shown
> Mr^LlncoIn. Xow.I desire to brand
m above statement la all its parts as a
ilfnl and malignant falsehood, and if
[r. Ward Lamon ever made such a statelent,
as alleged, to any one, I pronounce
itu a liar. 1 saw the article in the
Wl....* n nil I...1 f? ,?!- ?.? ?>?
shpold-f ot have #onde*a?ded to notioe
) silly a lie; but when I find it copied in*
) respectable journals, and a* it implia
ten many members of that brave old
ongres* that carried the United State*
fiumphantly through the war, most of
horn are dead; I thought such a scandal
pen them should not go uncontradicted'
The second statement in relation to
lr, Painter is as follow*:
"Mr. Wade is credited with saying in
iplanation of hi* famous letter that it
-as confidential, and was made pablfcby
person depraved aud utterly destitute
f honor."
This is also untrue -utterly false.
Jthough the letter whs private,h found
s way to the public in a manner which
ntireir exculpate# Mr. 1'ainter from
lame, nor do I blame him for it* publiition.
As it contained only sentiments
hich I stand by now, I don't regret its
ublicatiori, nnd in all the criticism* iu
le papers and otherwise which it hat
ailed forth none have as yet denied that
contained the axact.trnth. *
In vindication of Mr. Painter, I will
ay that 1 have known him many year?,
nd he ia as honorable a man as i ever
'to acquainted with.

Slit .FjUkcisco, Slay 2.?The Bulletin
thin evening lays editorially ol Aha recent
land graM under the desert 1'nrul law:
"The land in Kennand and Tudor counties
pre-empted under the desert land law
ia ?and witched between tracts which were
never before deemed to be anything else
but agricultural lands, and it has been
thus far treated as such. If the valley
lands on the banks of # th*? Gila river
and other streams within the ?ame
rone are under the literal construction
of desert lands, so also u
greater part of the southern counties.
Had the fertile and now highly cultivated
land* of Los An'gelos and Ban Bernardina
counties beeu unoccupied they
would be subject to pre-emption un.ler
the desert law with just as much propropriety
as the landf that are being now
taken up under it. The irrigation and
capacitv to raise agricultral crops are
about the same as the iriigable lands of
Peru and Tulare counties,and those in the
Gila Valley are desert lands in precisely
the same sen-o as arc the irrigable
lands of San Gabriel, Santa Anna and
Los Angelot Vallevs.
It is scarcely probable that it ?u contemplated
the law should be so construed
because some of the moat fertile unoccupied
lands in the territory will thus be
included in it.
