ft&e'Bdffer of The Chitzoo TrJmno
Batavia, Hi„ Aug. 23.—1 t is no fault of mine
*BSt the sad case of Mrs. Lincoln has been again
Skill the papers of the land. But now that to
many incorrect statements have been made, I
dawn it proper to correct some of them.
On the 19th of May laet, Mn. Lincoln, being
In court, wu declared “ insane, and a fit subject
for treatment in & State Hospital for the In
sane.” The warrant for commitment trae at
the request of her friends, directed to the un
dersigned, commanding him “ forthwith to ar
rest and convoy her to Bellevue Place, Batavia,
It has been publicly stated tbai I have “cer
tified” to the recovery, or mental soundness, of
Mrs. Lincoln. This is not true. She is cer
tainly much improved, both mentally and
physically; bnt I have not at any time regarded
her as a person of sound mind. 1 beard all the
testimony at the trial, May 19, and saw no reason
then to doubt tbe correotneea of tho verdict of
the jury, I believe her to be now insane.
The question of Mrs. Lincoln's removal from
this place, notwithstanding her mental impair
ment, has received careful consideration from
her conservator, Mr. Robert T. Lincoln, and my
self. Tho proposition having having been made
that she should go and live with her sister, Airs.
Edwards, in Springfield, lat ones said that if
she would do this in good faith, and thus secure
a quiet home for herself, I should favor it, “ un
less her condition should change for tbo worse.”
This was written to Mr. Robert T, Lincoln in a
letter addressed to bun on the 9th met. And
this la all there is of the “ certificate” said to
Xiavcfcbeen trrren fay me of tho •* recovery ” or
•• mental soundness ”of Mrs. Lincoln, lu ac
cordance with the above conditional sanction
of the proposition for removal, I have occasion
to know that Robert T. Lincoln made efforts to
perfect arrangements for the transfer of Mrs.
Lincoln to Springfield.
It is well known that there are certain insane
persons who need what in medico-legal science
is termed interdiction, which does not necessari
ly imply restraint. If time should show that
Mrs. Lincoln needs only tbo former, without the
latter, all will rejoico to see any possible en
largement of her privileges. And now, although
the conditions upon which. 06 the 9th inst., I
favored her removal, have been modmed by the
presence of a greater dCgrea of mental
purturoatioa than at that time existed, I am still
unwilling to throw any obstacle in the wav of
giving her an opportunity to have a boms with
her sister. But lam willing to record the opin
ion that such is the character of her malady
she will not he content to do this, and that tbe
experiment, if made, will result only in giving
the coveted opportunity to make extended ram
bles, to renew the indulgence of her purchasing
mania, and other morbid mental manifestations.
In regard to tbe treatment of Mrs. Lincoln
while under my care, it has been stated that sue
has been “kept in close confinement,” “virtu
ally imprisoned behind grates and bars.” “ lock
ed by her jailer as a prisoner,” “incarcerated,”
etc., etc. These and other like harsh terms are
not used in tbo interest of truth.
They are unjust, and do no credit to
those who apply them to the case of Mrs. Lin
coln. She need not remain in doors unless by
her own choice more than two or three waking
boors of any day. A carriage id always at her com
mand. She may nde or walk when and where
she pleases, on condition that she shall reture at
proper hours, and be accompanied by some suit
able person or persons. She receives calls from
ladies of her acquaintance in Batavia, and may
return them, bae has been called upon bv Gen.
Faruswoith, of St Charles, and by
some of her relatives in Springfield.
She has had, until the 16th lost.,
private unrestricted personal intercourse
with Judge Bradwell, who. io a threatening and
insulting letter to me, calls himself “ her legal
adviser And friend." The wife of Judge Brad well,
until the date above named,., has been permitted
repeatedly to visit Mrs. Lincoln, write her
numerous loiters, bear messages and packages
of letters from her, and lodge over night with
her in her room.
As to “guarded windows,” f have only to say
they are made as unobjectionable as it is possi
ble to make them. A light ornamental screen
was at first placed before Mrs. Lincoln’s win
dows. These were subsequently removed.
But when it is remembered that the
same evening on which Airs. Lincoln was de
clared insane she attempted suicide, all
right-minded persons will agree that guarded
windows were among the proper precautions
against accident.
As to “ barred doors," there are none at Belle
vue Place. Mrs. Linopin’s doors loading to tho
outer world are never locked during the dav
time. The outer door only is locked at bed-
time at night by her private attendant and the
key retained by the attendant, who deeps in an
adjoining room communicating with that of
Mrs. Lincoln. This, to my mind, is the proper
tain* to do.
Mrs. Lincoln has been placed where she is
under the foims of law, and, if any have a griev
ance, the Jaw is open to them, 'fins sad case
has commanded the constant endeavors of those
who hare the care of her unselfishly to do the
best for Mrs. Lincoln.
A motley crowd of about 100 disappointed
office-seekers, Communists, loafers, intermingled
with a few honest workingmen who merely came
fo see tbe fun, held another fire limits meeting
last evening at Lochoer’a Hal!, No. 460 Milwau
kee avenue. This meeting was gotten up by the
s*me parties who engineeied the one at Ogden's
Grove two weeks ago. The object of those
meetings is less to work for & contraction of the
fire limits, for nearly all those attending the
meetings do not care whether the city is built
of wood or brick, having never paid a
cent of taxes in their life, but to
bring a somi-Communistlc organization styled
the Guard of the Republic into prominence, and
help its loaders into office. It seems that the
better class of workingmen bavo already become
aware of this fact, and for this reason tbe meet
ing last evening was but pooriy attended, ana the
next one will undoubtedly fare wotse. Tbe fire
limits question has been chosen by these hungry
politicians because they thought it most calcu
lated to enthuse tbe workingmen. They, how>
ever, do not enthuse worth a cent. Most of them
have ccme to the conclusion that it is as cheap
to build of brick as wood, and those who
have not, are too wide awako not to see through
the flimsy pretenses of this clamorous body of
office-seekers, and will have nothing to do with
In&D. Sanest,
The meeting was called to order by Mr. John
W. Hoffman, who stated that
was to protest against the present extended flm
iimita. They had a similar meeting on the
North Side, a couple of weeks previous, and
resolutions were passed asking tbo Common
Council to change the present fire-ordioaoce.
They had thought it beat to give tbo Buffering
workingmen of the West Side a chance to ex
press their indignation at haring the fire-limits
coextensive ffitb (be city limits.
Mr. C. F. Harteman was elected Chairman, and
Mr. Henry Miller, Secretary.
was the first speaker. Ho said all beginning
was hard, as the thief said wheu he first stole au
auvil, and it was hard to inaugurate a new move
ment for the overthrow of corruption and fraud.
He could only refer to-the corruption among
the County Commissioners, who only a few
weeks ago perpetrated, a steal in giving away
the county printing to the Union and Courier,
the first cue being a paper of no account at all,
and the second bad hardly more Chau five read
ers. Such corruption as existed among
the officials in this city did not exist
in any place in the world, not even
in monarchical Europe. It was foolish to claim
that a small frame house would make a worse
fire than a large brick building. The wealthy
classee were making this outcry for brick build
ings because they would not tolerate a poor
man alongside of them. The chief aim of these
people was to drive the poor workingmen out of
the city altogether, and keep them in slavery
and poverty forever. Bat the time would come
if they all worked together man to man and
shoulder to shoulder when these corruptionists
would be driven fiom their stroogoolds by the
outraged people, and then this city wojld be
come tree indeed, and the workingmen would be
allowed to build their houses of whatever ma
terial they chose.
the neat speaker, deplored the fact that the
meeting was not better attended, but the reason
was that a mistake had been made in the selec
tion of the hall; they ought to have moved fur
ther out of the city, where the people were Buf
fering more from the present fire ordinance. It
waa foolish to assert that a Brick house could be
built ae cheap as a frame one. and besides a
fcnok bouse could not be moved from one lot
upon another as a frame building could. Through
the present ordinance workingmenwere prevent
ed from budding a home of their- own. They
even were compelled to sell the lots they already
possessed, because they could not afford to
build of brick. Ho attacked Greenebaum and
others who were in favor of extended tire-limits,
acd claimed that they wore actuated by. selfish
purposes only, owmmrr-ro tracts of lands out
side the cilr limits. If the meetings had been
six times ss targe, their moral force would have
had no weight witn the Council They had no
830,000 to give away like the railroad companies
and without imoney nothing could be Vottan
through the_ present Council. _ They therefore

most work at the next election, and select sucn
men to represent them in the Council as wouli
work for the rights of tbo people only. This
meeting was but a continuance of that hold on
the North Side, and otoor meetings would bo
bold in other sections until the whole city was
full? aroused.
Mr. John W. Hoffman then introduced the
tame multitude of “whereases” and “ro
solrode ” passed at tbe North Bido meeting, and,
after being eulogized by Mr. Charles Haussocr
for nearly an hour, he particularly dwelling
upon the probability of on earthquake being
just as probable as another great conflagration,

Messrs. Thompson, Louis Wellie, and several
others, dwelt at length upon the corruption ex
isting in the city, and the necessity of the con
traction of tbe fire limits. The meeting then
adjourned. _
The surviving members of tbe old United
States Cadet Corps met at the finennaa House
last evening for the purpose of a general reor
ganization, the adoption of a constitution and a
set of by-laws, and to receive tbe report of the
Committee on Reunion and Banquet. Maj. B.
B. Knox presided, and Qoodie True officiated as
Comrade Flovd introduced a resolution that
the names of all deceased members, together
with their rank in tho volunteer or regular
army,, be inscribed in golden letters on tne flag
won in 1859, and heU against all companies,
either in Canada or the United States. The
constitution and by-laws were adopted article by
article. , ... .
On motion of Comrade Floyd, all withdrawn
members arc eligible to membershio in the
organization just formed.
Comrade Bose, of tbe Committee on Reunion
and Banauet. to bo held Sept. 16, reported that
the Committee bad made all arrangements ex
cept tho loca'ion. It was thoir sense that tbe
banquet should bd a Tory rechorcho one, and ,
should be held at some of the first-class
hotels. Tho mosio is to be furnished
by about ten pieces, played as nearly as
possible by members of tbo old Light Guard
Band. In viow of the fact that tho Cadets were
tbe only company who went into active service
and c&mo out of it without touching a drop of
liquor, it w&s the sense of tbe Committee that
tbe haoquot should be in commemoration of
their good conduct, and that consequently no
wines or liquors should be drank on that occa
sion. The programme is to bo gotten up in the
finest stvla on white satin.
Balloting for officers then ensued, with tho
following result:
President —H> Dwight, la3lq, New York,

Second Vice ■ Preti ten'.—Ed ward B. Knox,
Secretary — l. Goodio True.
Ctistodum —Comradn Bo'sford.
Serpeant-at-Arms — Comrade Boss.
On motion of Conrado Ross, a committee ap
pointed at a previous meeting was empowered to
make all arrangements for the banquet. Messrs.
Knox. True, and Botsford were appointed to
attend to inscribing the champion colors with
the names of all deceased members.

A minister of this city yesterday dropped in
noon tne Assistant County Treasurer to par his
tares. While occupying a seat at the desk his
ore caught a miniature coffin, which upon rais
ing the lid showed these words; "Thisman
was talked to death.” Taking hold of
tne article, the reverend gentleman grave
ly asked if it was kept there as
a reminder of tho certainty of death. No
reply being made, be examined it carefully, and
at the same time entered into a short disserta
tion on the solemnity of the death-bod. and the
necessity of a change of heart to lighten tbe
pangs of that trying hour. Mr. Bore sat*
pasaivelv by, expecting every moment to ceo the
reverend gentleman raise the lid in his examina
tion, and expose the motto. He was not disap
pointed; but when the lid came up it as
quickly went down again. Laying the coffin
down qmetiy, the reverend gentleman could not
suppress a smile. He acknowledged the sell by
inquiring whether or not the poor creature had
been talked to death *by a preacher. He paid
his taxes, toon his receipt, and left the office a
wiser man.
The Joint Committee on Public Charities and
Service was engaged yesterday afternoon exam
ining into eamblea of coal and the propositions
of the various bidders to supply the countv.
The lowest bid was $3.38 for Wilmington coal,
from 11. D. Pratt, of this city. In connection
with this bid tbs Committee was in recemt
of a communication from the coal-producers
of Wilmington, stating that the same was
a fraud. Sir. Pratt was present to defend him
self, and, in reply to questions, ssid he was not
a dealer in coal, but proposed to open a mins at
Gardner, on the Chicago & Alton Bead, in the
event of the contract being awaided him, and
that ho had a favorable offer. He also stated
that he would give the necessary bond for the
faithful execution of the contract. The Com
mittee was inclined to doubt his ability to fur
nish the coal of the quality shown at the price
named, and adjourned without takingany action
The Committee on Jail and Jail Accounts held
a meeting yesterday afternoon, and approved of
a mil amounting to 8460 for reporting tbo Tur

The Gentlemen Who Served as Pioneers
Advantages of the Site Selected by Them.
Tho Chicago Rifle Club took the field yester
day. They attacked, with great enthaniaam, the
lake chore division of the South Park, and
played to a nicety the cloud-compelling Jove.
At noon the warriors took tho Hyde Park accom
modation-train to South Park elation. All were
fully armed and equipped. The following bravos
responded to the call of gunpowder and glory;
Geo. Julius White. Judge Jameson, Col. Thomp
son, H. H. Handy, H. W, S. Cleveland, George
Beuttenmu.'lor, S. B. Sexton, Judge Bradwell, C.
Fuller. John Muir, Dr. Williams, John Bums, S.
W. Burnham, and H. G. Howe.
ran weather.
Tho enn was exceedingly hot and the wind was
correspondingly high,—circumstances not at all
calculated to promote accuracy of aim or stead
iness of nerve. The olnb men were armed in a
miscellaneous manner, and regarded the whole
affair as a preliminary meeting. Some very
good shooting was done when tbe
wind went down, and, strange to say,
moat of the gentlemen did better at tho 200
than at tho 100 yard range. Nearly all of them
wore quite unused to rifle-shooting, and, al
though many of the bullets went outeide tbe
rings and did not count, comparatively few
“ goose-eggs ” were recorded.
acted as Captain, and gave very general satisfac
tion. lie scored some bull's-eyes himself, and.
with an inferior ride, hold bis own against the
ebamtnons who cained the improved weapons.
Mr. Cleveland’s choice shooter is now absent on
tbo Mississippi, whore hi.i gun is having a high
time among large and small game.
for the shooting are very conveniently situated,
and offer lair facilities for long-range and short
range practice. In firing for abortrange, tho
men bava to face the lake shore, which is pro
tected by a lino of high embankments, admira
bly calculated to stop tbo bullets in tbeir mad
career. By shooting in the edge of the woods
to tbe south, and firing in a northerly di
rection, onliqtiely toward tbe Jake, a
range of 1,300 yards can be obtained.
This is very satisfactory, although
most members of tbe Club would prefer Gale
wood, only that the railroad facilities are tofe
nearly so good. Therefore, they must make the
most of the grounds selected, which cau be im
proved at very little expense. Targets must be
constructed and a svetem of signals agreed upon.
Also, a pit must be dug out and foi tilled for tbe
marker, and. lu fact, the example of Creodmoor
must be followed as closely as possible.
need not be subjected to criticism. It, stall
events, evinced a fine spirit, and gave promise
pf better things in the future. Some very
creditable shots were made bv Judge Bradweii,
Gen, White, S. B. Sexton, H. H. Handy, John
Ennis, Dr. Williams, George Bomten
muller, H, W. S. Cleveland, and
others. With the wind more favorable
tbe scores would hive been far better. Next
time the gentlemen will, no doubt, eclipse the
performance of yesterday. So far as heard
from, no simple-minded cow or wandering
Granger has been killed or wounded, although
as the afternoon advanced tbe firing became a
regular fusillade. The party practiced for more
thau three hours, and retired from the
field jubilant in their ability to hit
oven so small a mark os a hay-stack.
It is supposed that rifle-shooting will take place
of base-ball as a national amusement. No doubt
“teams ” will be raised by the different profea
«iou* in this city. If so, The Tribune reporter
begs leave to recummeuu to tbe news
paper fraternity as a champion of their skill.
He beat everything on record, having made
five “goose eggs” in rapid succession,
and with incredible accuracy. Modesty
compels tbsi knight of the pencil to refrain from
invidious comparisons. His opinion of bis own
prowess has nseu so high that he has no hesita
tion in betting that ha would hit Mont ~Rlann at
100 yards once out of every three shots.
Now that the bail has fairly opened,
tho public may expect something stirr
ing from the Chicago Rifle Club. Should
there be any sudden death from gunshot
wounds over in Michigan, at any point facing
tbe South Park, let not the Michiganders blame
the Chicago riflemen for the result. They ought
’to build a protecting wall along their coast, so
that all neks may be avoided.
It is rumored that a picked Chicago eight in
tend to challenge tbe heroes of Greedmoor and
Dollyxnount before another year bas passed.

rarrao to omiasizE is the sEVEornarrn.
A meeting was held at No. 177 North Wells
street last evening to organize a branch
of the Jeffersonian Club. Tho attendance was
small, the non-voting element predominating,
bnt those present were true disciples of the
origins! or contra! Club, which has been charac
terized by its noise, disagreements, and mob
bisfr ’penalties.
James Ennis, who was sent from the central
Club for that purpose, called the crowd to order,
and stated the object of the meeting to bo to
organize for the campaign in opposition to
“ Orantism, third-term!am, aod corruption.”
Ho was subsequently called temporarily to the
chair, which was a beer-keg In the rear of the
room secreted behind a pool-table.
Upon his ting the chair the greatest confu
sion, approximating a mob. ensued, in which,a
half-dozen were on toe floor at tho same time,
making motions, speeches, and oaths in English
and German.
Out of tho confusion It was indistinctly under
stood that an effort had been on foot to elect a
President of the Clnb in advance of its forma

A voice tvm heard amid the din attacking Mr.
Leahey because ha was an Irishman, which
aroused bio iro, and made him say some ugly
things, and to denounce the whole movement in
the bitterest tonus.
Finally the election was proceeded with, the
Chair adopting the novel plan of having the
crowd march around the pool-table, and give
their names to the Secretary as they passed.
The plan worked well, and the bovs enjoyed it
heartily, mauy of them succeeding in passing
aronnd seveial times.
The result was finally announced as the elec
tion of Schooninger, whereupon Mr. Leahey de
clared in an excited manner that be bad been
SWINDLED OUT of an election.
Ho waa joined iu hie remonatranca by hi#
Irish friends, who said the ward contained about
400 Irish voters who might , he needed at the
polls this fall, but who would bo wanting in tba
war on the Republican party if they were to bo
treated as they had been at that meeting.
Mr. Leahey waa finally appeased, however,
and induced to accept the position of Vico-
President, with John Alnrkey to assist him. Dr,
Shippers and David Smith were after a manner
elected Secretaries, and Messrs. Zimpel, Murkey,
Wheeler, Leahey, and Doric, a committee to
select a Ward Contra! Committee for the club, to
report at the nest meeting.
The remainder of toe time of the meeting
was given to personal wrangles between the
speakers and the chair, which at tunes threaten
ed to lead to blows, and probably blood-letting.
On the whole, a moro disgraceful, inharmoni
ous, unrepresentative body never assembled in
the Seventeenth Ward. Had all been drunk or
insane, the meeting, from the President down,
could not have possibly been more boisterous or
To the Editor of The Chicago Inbui»e:
Chicago, Aug. 2S.—lu your issue of Prlday
there appears an article on this subject which
contains some incorrect and, decidedly objec
tionable statements. It says the Republican
party have been for some time endeavoring to
find some prominent and popular German who
would accept the nomination, but as soon as
they proposed it to such an one he declined, and
up to the present time no German of. any note
has been discovered who would consent to run.
The reach is the leading men among the Repub
licans have been casting about for one of some
other nationality, and have found an Irishman
who will undertake tbs job. There it is in a
nutshell. A foreigner we must have. A Ger
man we can’t get, so an will
do. As an American citizen I would ask,
c«to —•» no fights that the political
parties are bound to respect.- nasutuuwTuw
this that the Ameiican people most submit to
see placed in position of public trust first a Ger- |
man, then an Irishman, then a German, next an ,
Irishman, with scarce ever an American sand- J
wicbed in between ? If the Teutons and the
Celrs, because they are such, are to displace the
free-born American in Council Chamber, Legis
lative hails, and positions of public trust, bow
long will it bo ere the beer-guzzling
iniidel characteristics of the one md whisky
loving, irascible propensities of the other
displace the law-abiding, elevating tendencies of
tbo American nation ? It seems to me time for
the American people to rise in their might, and
declare by tbeir votes that they will not allow
the admininistration of tbeir sffaira to pass out
of their hands by default, bni declare in an un
mistakable voice, We have non and candidates
of undoubted honor and fiuess, and we will«ob
tain them ere the scepiro d power departs from
us forever. A Totes,
