New York, Aug. 10. The steamer Laura
Starin, which was substituted for the
Sam Sloan, took the Blaine reception party
from pier 18 at 7:08 o'clock this morning
andieached quarantine at 7:48.
The steamer City of Nevr York was
boarded fire miles off Sandy Hook, while
at anchor waiting for high tide tocrosa the
bar, by representatives of the press, who
learned that the voyage was a pleasant
and uneventful one and that Mr. Blaine
was well. Mr. Blaine said he was in ex
cellent health and his trip had renewed his
About eight o'clock the steamer Starin
met the City of, New York outside the
Narrows. The Starin turned about and
both vessels hlowly steamed up the bay,
bow and bow. Cheer after cheer rose
from the decks of the Starin, although it
was yet impossible to distinguish Mr.
Blaine's form among the 2,000 that stood
on the forcdecks of the huge steamer.
As the vessels neared each other Mr.
Blaine's form was at last made out stand
ing among a group of friends on the upper
deck. As cheer after cheer arose Mr.
Blaine bowed repeatedly. He was neatly
dressed in a dark cutaway coat, light
trousers and light derby hat.
The Chicago Blaine clubs had been the
first to greet the steamer as it came up the
bay, and clung under its wings, while the
Chicago men cheered. Cappa's band on
the Starin played ''Home Again," "Home,
Sweet Home" and the "The Star Spangled
Banner," while advancing up to quaran
tine. Then both vessels came to anchor,
and as the Starin ran over under the side
Hon. James G. Blaine.
of the City of New York, Mr. Blaine's face
and form were plainly visible to every one
on board. Cheer after cheer broke forth,
handkerchiefs and flags were waived,
cries of "Blaine, Blaine, James G. Blaine,"
and "no free trade" arose, and the utmost
enthusiasm prevailed.
At last at 9:15 o'clock, to the music of
"Hail to the Chief," Mr. Blaine got on
board the Starin, 'escorted by "VVhitelaw
Keid and Mr. Pool.
Mr. Bartlutt delivered the speech of wel
come. Mr. Blaine said in reply:
Mr. President and gentlemen of the Repub
lican CIud and fellow citizens: To enable you
to appreciate this welcome each and every one
of you should be absent from home for the
long period of fourteen months. I am sure you
can have hut little conception of the inspiration
I had when I saw the great shores of this
Republic. 1 can not tell you how grateful I
am to be remembered by you in this manner.
It is a scene I shall never forget. It is an occa
sion which I assure you I appreciate from the
depths of my heart. It is shadowed only by
the sad event which greeted us. As the first
piece of American news we heard of the death
of General Sheridan, a man who was above re
proach and stood bravely for the union of the
Suites. Shouts of "Good."
"With that exception my arrival upon my na
tive shore was unattended by any thing but
joy and happiness.
The campaign on which you are about to en
ter should be prefaced, if that were possib'e. by
every voter in the United States seeing what I
have teen "Good, good."l and hearing what I
have heard during the past year. Applause.
The progress of the campaign in the United
States is viewed from the European stand
point with an interest as profound as it is in
the United States It is the opportunity of
England. It is the long looked for occa-ion
upon which the cheaper labor and the cheaper
fabrics of the old world expect to invade the
new and lower the wages of the new world to
those of the old. Applause.
It is not a contest of capital against capital;
it is cot a contest of parisan against partisan.
It is much higher than either of these. It
transcends all party motive. Applause.
"Whether the great mass of American
citizens who earn their bread by the
sweat of their brow shall be so reduced in
the emolument from day to day applause
that is the whole pith and moment of this ques
tion. Any thing that diverts the question from
that single point is a weakening of the cam
paign. Applause and cries of "Good." I say
here what I hope to say with much more elab
oration loud cheering and cries of "That's
what we wanC'l I say here that the wages of
the American laborer can not be reduced ex
cept with the consent and the votes of the
American laborer himself.
The appeal lies to him. It comes to his door
and asks him whether, with the great power of
the franchise and the great majority he pos
sesses in his own hands, he is willing for him
self and his associates, his children and his
children's children to take that fatal step at the
bidding of an American CoHgres and an Amer
ican President, who are governed by that ele
ment which fought to destroy this Nation.
But, gentlemen, it is not a time for a political
speech. My heart is too full to enter at this
time on lengthened arguments. In this mo
ment of joy. getting homo to old scenes and
to old friends, I must be allowed to enjoy the
pleasant emotions of the occasion. I can only
add my fervent thanks to each and every mem
tier of the club and to all my friends for the
generous and joyous welcome they have ex
tended to me in the harbor of New York.
"While Mr. Blaine was speaking the cabin
was crowded to its utmost limits and ears
stuck through the transoms with eagerness
to hear every word. The greatest enthu
siasm prevailed. An outburst of cheering
followed the conclusion of his brief speech.
Mr. Blaine said he and his family en
joyed the trip over and that it was on the
whole a pleasant one.
The Starin meanwhile was steaming up
the North river, with the band playing
and its passengers indulging in frequent
cheers for Blaine. All along the river it
was escorted by the police boat and other
vessels, while a constant yell of salutes
from the steam whistles of the boats it
passed, marked its progress to the pier at
Twenty-second and North river, where Mr.
Blaine and all on board disembarked. The
police landed from the patrol and pre
served o der, while others already sta
tioned at the entrance to it prevented the
large crowd waiting in the street from surg
ing in. Mr. Blaine was escorted to an open
carriage by Messrs. Pool and Bartlett, of
the Republican Club, and was at once
driven to the Fifth Avenue Hotel, where
rooms had been engaged for him.
At Madison Square.
New York, Aug. 1L Hon. James G.
Blaine attended the demonstration in his
honor atMadison Square Garden last even
tag. Mr. Blaine's appearance caused the
immense audience to break into an uproar
ious scene of enthusiasm. Replying to the
iddress of Mr. David Healy on behalf of
Sew York working men, Mr. Blaine said:
It would be considerable egotism on my part
to take this magnificent demonstration at
personal, altogether to myself. It rather sig
nifies the great popular interest in the ques
tion upon which I am supposed to have a con
sistent record and an earnest zeaL Applause.
And you have before you a contest in which
that great Issue is to be settled by the Amer
ican people for perhaps an indennite period,
the one way or the other. The year 1SS7 was
prosperous and the President at Its close pro
posed a radical chaDge in the industrial system
which has produced that great prosperity, and
since that day there has been con
fusion in the commerce and manu
factures of the United States. Ap
plause. The question before the Amer
ican people is whether he and his administra
tion shall be sustained in that movement.
Against him the Republicans, having the best
cause, have nominated the best man. Ap
plause. They hare given to you for President
a man of sound experience, a man of heroic
record in the war, a man of great purity of
character, a man of great firmness and worthy
of the best days of the administration in this
country. And you have associated with him
a man whom to New Yorkers I need not
further describe than to say that his name is
Levi P. Morton lapp ause ; a man of the most
generous character, of intelligent compre
hension of affairs, of the widest and most
statesman1 ike views on all the public ques
tions pending before the American people.
Against this you have two gentlemen of
whom I would not speak in terms other than
those of personal respect. Of their Vice-Presidential
candidate I have been a friend of many
years' standing and I am a personal admirer of
Judge Thurman. Cut I beg you to observe that
nta critical period in this country the Vice
President, ueorge M. Dallas, inacasting vote in
a tied Senate destroyed tlfe protective tariff of
lWi If you do not prevent them Mr. Thurman
will be in a polition to re-enact the vote of
George M. Dallas in 1SJS. Therefore the more
amiable and th-i more able a mau may be, the
worse will be his influence before the American
people. Applause.
Now, gentlemen, I know that in discussing
the question of a protective tariff we are al
ways pointing out what England is doing. I
have lately been in England for some months
and I found in English public opinion a very
great difference of opinion upon almost all
questions. They are about evenly divided upon
what you call the Irish question; they are
about divided upon the forcible policy of Glad
stone and Salisbury: they are divided even
upon the continuance of the House of Lords,
and they are not absolutely unanimous in sup
port of the Monarchy. Laughter and ap
plause. But there is one opinion they are
united on and that is 'that Hon. Grover Cleve
land, President of the United States, em
bodies in his person the regular foim of
revenue and free trade for the United States
which they like. Applause. Now, I have no
objection to their right of opinion, and if I had
it would amount to nothing; nor do I intend to
speak disrespectfully of the English, for I have
received at their hands very graceful and very
cordial hospitality, which I would be a churl
not to acknowledge b..-fore an American audi
ence: but that does not affect the pending con
ditions that the American people find their in
terests in one policy and that the English want
to change that policy so as better to conform to
their interests. And that, gentlemen, is the
prime question before you in the next Novem
ber election.
I am glad that this meeting is called in the
name of the laboring people because this ques
tion is from first to last, from skin to core, and
back to skin again, a question of labor. Loud
applause-. If you will agree to live in as poor
a house and eat as poor food and receive as low
wages as the people in England receive, we can
produce as cheap goods as a Democratic admin
istration wants to see laughter and applause,
but it will be otherwise if you wish to better
your condition and if you want the industrial
system of protected interests that prevail In
thi country now to be maintained. The savings
of the wage workers of England, Scotland and
Ireland, as I said to-day to a Massachusetts
gentleman, are not near as great as lie to-night
in the savings bank of Massachusetts to the
credit of the wage workers of that small State,
and if you turn the administration of this Re
public to-day into free trade channels, you may
not expect those great savings for you will put
our laboring men throughout the country into
competition with the laboring men of
Great Britain, and in the courso of
five or ten years you will make them
as poor upon this side of the water
as they are upon the other. I will not, in this
campaign, stop to argue the question upon any
other basis. I have no personalities to indulge
in. I have no sores to heal. Loud cheers. I
would rather have your cordial and heartfelt
and sympathetic welcome than any office you
care to bestew upon me. Applauscl But in
this canvass, in which I shall take greater or
less part. I shall hold this question from the be
ginning to the end as a question that interests
every man, woman and child in this country
that depends upon daily labor for daily bread.
Applause. There is no need to mako
any laws to protect capital capital al
ways takes care of itself and gets a
full share but there are laws that can elevate
the condition of the laboring man, and there
are laws that can degrade him, and the Repub
lican party has stood for twenty-five years and
it will stand, I believe, with the blessingof God
and the will of the American people, twenty
five years more, upholding and maintaining the
laboring man. for the Government which takes
care of the bone and smew and working muscle
of the land is taking care of the men who ere
ated the wealth of the country and who are
therefore entitled to the patronage and protec
tion of the Government. Applause.
Now, gentlemen, you represent a critical
State, you represent the State of New York;
your votes are to tell in that issue. Do not be
diverted from that one question by side issues.
Do not be misled by petty squabbles upon this
or that small issue or upon personal questions
of abuse on the one hand or the other, but give
your votes as independent laboring men and
give them for the interests of your own homes,
of your own firesides and thereby for the great
interests of the great Republic. Immense
cheering. I never, Mr. Chairman, thought of
that Republic as I do to-night. Cheers. I
have seen the other side: I have devoted
many of the last fourteen months to seeing
the condition of labor and laboring men in the
other hemisphere, and I say without fear of
contradiction that in no country of Europe, in
no part of Europe or a part of any country, is
the condition of labor comparable to that which
it holds in the United States Applause Arc
you willing to give up that position or arc you
willing to maintain it? Cries of "Yes." You
can maintain it by a strong pull and a long pull
and a pull altogether for Harrison and Morton."
ILoud and enthusiastic cheering and waving of
The crowd broke into a wild anil tumul
tuous cheer as Mr. Blaine concluded.
AVhat Is Thought "Was Accomplished by the
ltrothcrhood Meeting.
St. Loci's, Aug. 11. The meeting of the
chairmen of the grievance committees of
the Brotherhood of Engineers, which has
been in session here the past two days, ad
journed last evening and Chief Arthur
went home. The meeting was secret and
next to no information of its proceedings
has been given to the public. It was
h?nrned, however, that the object of the
conference was two-fold to confer re
specting the status of the "Q" strike
and consult regarding the proposed
amalgamation of the engineers,
firemen, brakemen and switch
men. It is given on the authority
of a prominent engineer who stands very
near to Chief Arthur that a strong alliance
has been formed between the orders named.
Mr. Sargent was present at the meeting
and all the other branches of the railroad
employes who had authorized representa
tives on the floor. The terms of
the compact can not be obtained nor
the plans they have for pushing the new
organization to a successful end. Resolu
tions were adopted indorsing Mr. Arthur
and Mr. Sargent, and it was decided to
continue the "Q" strike, and to increase
the pay of the strikers from the strikers'
fund so that they might make provision
for the winter. The engineers will here
after receive $G0 per month and the fire
men 40. Plans are in progress in regard
to the strike, but no one would reveal what
they were.
Desperado Brought Down.
Sprtxgfield, Mo., Aug. 11. Officers
yesterday morning brought in S. J. Ber
don, the negro desperado who dangerously
wounded Police Officer Palmore. He was
surrounded on a farm about six miles east
of this city, and when asked to surrender
drew his revolver, but before he could fire
Officer Snow put a bullet through his body,
bringing him to the ground. He was
placed in jail, whera & lies in a critic!

North Carolina Train AVrecklnfr.
Raleigh, N. C, Aug. i. News was re
ceived here of the details of a disaster on
the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta rail
way near Charlotte. As a passenger train
was on its way toward Columbia and was
running rapidly the engine leaped tho
track and in a moment was a wreck. For
tunately there was a low embankment at
tho scene of the accident. A telegram
was sent to Charlotte and a train took
surgeons to the wounded. The latter are
as follows : Engineer James Alexander, Car
Greaser John Ross (colored), Baggage Mas
terT. A. Cobb, Mail Agent Broughton, H. J.
Sleight, express messenger; J. E. Park,
fireman. The latter is literally crushed to
pieces, although he is still alive at the
hospital, and the doctors nt Charlotte think
they can save him. Ross, who was scalded
most horribly, died last night at Charlotte,
It is learned that an official examination
of the track shows that the wreck was
carefully planned. Iron pike screws had
been fixed on the top of the rails on each
side, and with these the spikes hnd been
pulled up for a distance of several yards,
so as to allow the track to spread.
Fooled With a Snake.
Mehphis, Tenn., Aug. 7. While Jackson
Moore and John Harvey, aged about
seventeen years, were hunting squir
rels across the river in Arkansas yes
terday they discovered a large rattle
snake coiled upon a rock apparently
asleep. Moore crept up to the deadly
rattler, and by a quick movement
caught it firmly below the head' and held
it at arm's length in triumph. Suddenly
the snake coiled itself around tho boy's
arm. He became frightened and attempted
to throw it off, when the reptile struck him
in the neck. It fangs became, fastened
in the flesh. The unfortunate victim
screamed with horror, and grasping the
snake with both hands, tore it loose anc
flung it to the ground. He then fell to the
earth in a swoon, while his terrified friend
fled for assistance. The nearest house was
two miles distant and when help arrived
the poor lad was past help and died in
great agony. The snake was found coiled
close by, and when killed measured four
Vet nino inches, and had eighteen rattles.
The ingenuity of some school
children in getting over the knotty
question? propounded to them in the
recent examinations was surprising,
according to tho stories the teachers
tell. One boy in school scratched his
head for a long time before attempting
to "compare the animals of North
America with those of Europe." At
last, in his desire to say something, he
wrote: "The animals of North Amer
ica are not as large as those of Europe,
but they get there just the same."

All That Is Mortal of the Late General of
the Army Quietly Laid to Kest at Arling
ton. Washington-, Aug. 12. The last rites for
the dead were to-day performed accord
ing to the ordinances of the Roman Catho
lic Church for Philip Henry Sheridan, Gen
eral of the army of the United States, and
his body was laid to rest in beautiful Ar
lington, the city of the soldier dead.
The event was marked by a general sus
pension of public business. The ceremo
nies throughout were in keeping with the
character of the man. Tho strict adhe
rence to an almost military simplicity in
the arrangements, the heavy-wheeled cais
son for his hearse, which had seen service,
best befitted the closing scenes in the life
of so great a soldier.
St. Matthew's Church, where the re
mains of General Sheridan had laid in
state since Thursday afternoon, and where
the principal burial services were held, is
an ancient edifice of modest pretensions,
with stuccoed walls, and but for its glassy,
pillared front, would attract little atten
tion from a stranger.
It is the most popular Catholic church
in Washington, and for many years it has
numbered among its congregations tho
members of many of the foreign legations,
Cabinet members, Senators and Congress
men. At nine o'clock the doors were thrown
open and those of the large crowd passed
inside who had tickets of admission. They
were conducted to their seats by ushers
dressed in full military uniforms,under the
direction of Colonel John M. Wilson of the
corps of civil engineers.
Among the prominent persons present
were Senators Ingalls, Edmunds, Evarts.
Jones, of Nevada, Sawyer and Far
well and Justice Harlan and wife. At about
9:30 the pall bearers, headed Dy uenerai
Sherman in full uniform,
anrarnri ot" rnu
left of the catafalque. Soon the joint com
mittee of Congress appeared and was con
ducted to seats reserved for them in front
and to the right of the catafalque. Four
of them occupied General Shennuu's pew.
About 9:40 the Presidentand Mrs. Cleve
land and Secretaries Fairchild and Vilas
came in and took seats in the front pew to
the right of tho centernisle. Mrs. Folsom,
Secretary Bayard and Postmaster-General
Dickinson followed and were seated in the
vicinity. About five minutes after the
Presidential party arrived Mrs. Sheridan
was escorted to a seat to the left and near
the casket. She was deeply vailed.
Cardinal Gibbons delivered the sermon.
Before the completion of the services tho
caisson and the General's horse were re
moved to a point near tho church en
trance, and after the casket had been
placed on the caisson the column was
formed by wheeling to the left and moved
en route far enough to permit the forma
tion of the column of carriages in tho
In accordance with the wishes of Mrs.
Sheridan tho funeral was a strictly mili
tary affair, and tho escort was formed
precisely as prescribed by the army regu-
r lations for an officer of the rank of the de
The pall bearers were: General Sher
man, Secretaries Endicott and Whitney,
Speaker Carlisle, Senator Hawley, Gen
eral Augur, General McFeely, General
Wesley Merritt, General Joseph Fuller,
Mr. George W. Childs, Colonel Charles P.
Lincoln, department commander of the G.
A. R., Marshal Field and Vice-President
Frank Thomson, of the Pennsylvania rail
road. The joint Congressional committee was
composed of Senators Hawley, Mander-
son, Culloin, Stewart, Hampton, Gibson
and Gray, and Representatives Hooker, of
Mississippi; Cutcheon, of Michigan;
Wheeler, of Alabama; Henderson, of Illi
nois; Cox, of New York; Grosvenor, of
Ohio, and McShane, of Nebraska.
The route was by H street to Pennsj-1-vania
avenue to the Arlingi on road by way
of the aqueduct bridge. Crowds lined tho
entire route, and all available places for a
view of tho line were occupied.
As the caisson came to a hnult at the
grave the clergy in flowing robes headed a
procession from the carriages to tho grave.
Bishop-elect Thomas F. Foley, of Detroit,
brother of Bishop Thomas Foley, of Chi
cago, who married General Sheridan, was
the officiating priest. His assistants,
acolytes and trained choir of Dominican
monks numbered more than n score in all.
Next came tho pall-bearers, General Sher
man and Secretary Endicott, Speaker Car
lisle and Secretary Whitney walking nt
tho head, and behind them, leaning heavily
on the arm of Colonel Sheridan, came tho
grief-stricken widow. The mourners in
cluded John Sheridan, brother of the de
ceased, General and Mrs. Rucker, parents
of the widow, her brother and sister, and
the military staff and several other inti
mate friends of the General. The' Presi
dent and Mrs. Cleveland and the commit
tees of the two houses of Congress with
bare heads followed the mourners.
With a sprig of fir plucked from a neigh
boring branch holy water was sprinkled
over the grave and the casket was lowered
by the sergeants.
The regular burial service, beginning
with the canticle of Zachary or the bene
dictus, and ending with the chanting of
"De Profundis" by the choir of Dominican
priests, brought the religious features of
the obsequies to an end. The priests then
stood aside and remained in a group near
the head of the grave. Every breath was
hushed while the widow came a step for
ward and for one brief moment looked
upon the casket which held her beloved
dead. As she turned away the other
mourners in a body paid their tribute of
love and respect and then at a signal the
artillery fired a salute of seventeen guns.
The Legion of Honor moved up tin a lino
and looked in upon the still uncovered
casket and then filed away.
The great hollow square now contained
but one figure, that of a stalwart cavalry
bugler who stood facing eastward, his
bugle under his arm, at the head of the
grave. There was a hoarse command at
the left, echoed and passed on down the
lino of infantry, a rattle of steel, a moment
of expectation and then the simultaneous
flash and roar of SOO muskets. Again and
again the volley was repeated. 'Then the
bugler came to attention, raised his bugle
to his lips and blew "taps," the signal for
"lights out," the military equivalent for
good night. The mourners then slowly
left for home and the body of the military
hero was left to its solitude.

A dandy once went to a doctor to

from his trembling arm, whereupon the

subsided, raised up his head and ex

Are Used Almost Exclusively
Makers of Pine Brashes.
In a well-known establishment on
an East side street, diverted to paints
and artists' materials of every con
ceivable description, there hangs on
the wall a remarkable collection of
paint brushes, large and small, so
tastefully and artistically arranged
within a gilded frame that one readily
receives the impression, at a little dis
tance, that it is a curiously wrought
piece of needlework. The frame in
closing this grouping of what would
be considered individually as exceed
ingly commonplace implements of art
or trade is about eiirht feet long by
four feet in width. There are over
three hundred brushes in this collec
tion of different kinds and all are
manufactured by the firm in question.
"The subject of paint" and artists'
brushes is a very interesting one,"
said one of the members of the firm in
response to an inquiry as to the de
tails of their manufacture, "and the
many processes the bristles or hairs
go through forming the brushes are
"Practically none of the finer
brushes, whether they be large or
small, are made from domestic bris
tles. Nearly all the bristles come
from Gtirmany or Russia, the Russian
being the more preferable, as the hogs
from which they are taken run
wild in Northern Russia and Si-
.. , . fl ,iff
than those of the domestic animal.
Several attempts have been made to
utilize the bristles from native hogs,
but without success. It is the uni
versal law of nature, among the lower
animals at least, that careful breeding
tends to shorten the growth of the
hair or bristles. I have seen bristles
from the Russian wild boar measure
nearly a foot long, and of great
strength. These bristles are used for
paint, varnish, kalsomine and white
wash brushes and others of the
coarsest description.
"But here is one of the smallest
size," he continued, and took from a
case a delicate and tiny brush about
the size of a needle. "This is used in
the finest class of art work and, to
gether with brushes of a slightly
coarser nature, is made from the hair
of the sable, camel or badger.
"The bristles always come to us in
bulk and are first thoroughly cleaned.
After the cleansing process has been
finished they are carefully dried and
sorted, size for size, and are trimmed
to the required length. They are then
attached to the handles and are ready
for immediate use. It takes from one
to three days, according to the quality
of the brush, to put it into perfect
shape". N. T. Mail and Express.
It is a mistaken idea that a bache
lor always refers to a baby as "it."
Frequently he speaks of the little
household angel as "that confounded
kid." Somcrvillc Journal.

For rheumatism, neuralgia, pain in the

One Ol the most Important organs oftho
human body is the LIVER. When it (ails to
properly perform its functions the entire
system becomes deranged. The BRAIN,
to perform their work. DYSPEPSIA, CON
EASE, etc., are the results, unless some
thing is done to assist Nature in throwing
off the impurities caused by inaction ot a
TORPID LIVER. This assistance so ne
cessary will be found in ,
Prickly Ash Bitters !
It acts directly on the LIVER, STOMACH
and Kl DN EYS, and by its mild and cathartic
effect and general tonic qualities restores
these organs to a sound, healthy condition,
and cures all diseases arising from these
causes. It PURIFIES THE BLOOD, tones
up the system, and restores perfect health.
