.A Backslider.
/laWmare American, April 20.
The temperance cause lias met with a sad
blow in the backsliding of XJeorgo ill. Dutcher,
a well-known temperance advocate, who has
abandoned his wife and family, and is now said
to be on a prolonged drunken carouse in Hart
ford, Conn., in company with a woman of at
least doubtful reputation. He located himself
at Wilmington, Del., two years ago during the
bf<*tit of the Murnhy excitement, ami the nco
ple ot that citv were so favorably imnressed by
his labors, In the course of which he made
thousands ot converts, that they presented a
comfortable home, which was deeded to his
wife. His fame as a lecturer extended through
out the peninsula, and last fall he was invited
to Philadelphia, where he became a great favor
ite, making proselytes by the hundred. When
Dutcher dosed his labors in Philadelphia he was
followed to Wilmington by a .Mrs. Judge Wat
son, who professed to have been converted by
the apostle of temperance. She announced her
self as a lecturer, and the relations between the
two became a matter of gossip and remon
strance by bis friends, who urged him to dis
continue any intercourse with her. He stubbornly
refused, and finally left the dty with her. with
out the knowledge of many of bis friends and
ae-ainst the remonstrance of others. He daimed
that his relations with Mrs- M atson were of the
purest character, and that they were going to
England on a tour in the interest of religion
and temperance, lecturing jointly. After they
were "one many friends oillrs. Dutcher wrote to
ber husband, begsriug io return to bis wife
and children, but instead of doing bo he wrote
to Mrs. Dutcber, asking her to mortgage the
house which the people of Wilmington had
given them, and send him SI,OOO for traveling
expenses. The unhappy wife, Instead of com
plying with tins demand' pursued her husband,
and found him at Danbury, Conn., in company
with Mrs. Watson. They were to have lectured
there, but the expose made by the descried wife
in appealing to him to return to his family broke
up that part of their plans, und Dutehcr has
since become a complete sot. Mrs. Dutcber
lias returned from her trio heqrt-broken. The
good which such men as Dutehcr do as temper
ance advocates and evangelists is often more,
thau outweighed by the evil accomplished iu
their fall from the principles which they have
advocated.
WEST PARK BOARD.
Tho Regular Monthly Meeting
of the West Park Board was held last evening
at the corner of Washington and Halstcd streets.
There were present Commissioners Woodard,
McCrea, Wilcox, Buehlcr, Wilkins, and Ralphs.
President Woodard presided,
A communication from P. S. Pederson inform
ed the BoanTtlmt he had 3,000 trees, spruce,
Norway pine, etc., which he proposed to donate
to the parks If the-Board would accept of them,
as he was going out of the nursery business.
The offer was accepted with thsnks.
A communication was read from Walford N,
Lowe, for Gault & Lowe, stating that this law
firm had seut in a bill for services amounting to
S2OO. Accompanying this communication was
an explanation from Gen. George W. Smith,
stating that he had made no bargain with the
parties, nor had he employed them in the case.
President Woodard explained that the case in
question was this: A suit had been commenced
by a citizen named Wallace in the form of a
quo warranto, iu order to remove Holden
trom the Board. The parties had done con
siderable work in the matter, and the result was
that the present members obtained possession
of the Board. After the discussion, it was
agreed to allow the bill. *
reaching Tn#PARK3.
The Secretary read a resolution to the effect
that the West Division Railway Company
be requested •to extend the tract, either on
Ogden avenue or Twelfth street, to
Douglas Park, and that a iiue of stages should
be put on Immediately, to run until the road
should be completed.
On motion, it was agreed to strike out
“Twelfth street,” and in this form the resolu
tion was passed.
The report of B. Lowentlml, the Treasurer of
the Board, was read. It showed he had
paid vouchers amounting to 814,982.88;
Treasurer’s bill for special services, $396.95;
to Treasurer’s salary fronts April X to date,
$36.67; amount paid to Jchn Buebier, incoming
Treasurer, 813,033.79; total, $29,050.29. Re
ceipts: By balance, $21,144.30; Order No. 49,
on Town Collector, $7,905.49.
This report called for some discussion. It
was agreed that it was irregular on the part of
the cx-Treasurer to keep back any moneys for
services* but the only serious kick was made on
the item of $390.95 for'special services' of the
Treasurer. The report was not accepted, bat
was referred to the Finance Committee, with
instructions to demand tiiat amount of him.
On motion of Commissioner Wilcox, the
ter of erecting an ornamental building or
pavilion In Humboldt ‘Park lake was referred
to the Improvement Committee with power to
act up to a cost of $1,090,
DUBIOUS BONDS.
The Judiciary Committee reported upon the
matter of the West. Park bonds of
a certain issue, which had came*
into the possession of Col. Cooper,
of the National Tube-Works, as an innocent
purchaser, * stating ‘that tiiat gentleman was
willing to surrender; the bonds, which were
drawing 8 per cent, with a rebate amounting to
about 3 per cent of the qmount. Tiie Commit
tee thought that it would be to the credit of the
West Park Board to settle up this old matter iu
some way, and recommended tlmt it be referred
to the Finance Committee, with newer to act.
Mr. Wilcox made, a long explanation of the
entanglement, stating that about $50,000 worth
of land was purchased by the Park Board a long
time ago, bonds being given in payment tor the
need lu 1870 to the amount of $5,500. When
the bonds became due the Board gave a note.
Now the parties held.both the note and the
bunds, which became',' separated and were
transferred to different innocent parties,
who hud brought boUß’Uic note and the bonds
to the Board for payment, thus making the
amount claimed agaius( c the Board double what
it originally was. parties who held the
papers, trusts, etc.,' were scattered over the
country and could no i be'found.
The report was accented and adopted.
After some further-business bad been trans
acted, the Board adjourned.

Train Came.
Six Car-loads of “ Tin-Tag ” Tobacco
from New York to Chicago iu

The Owner of Parole and Pap

There was a commotion in Kail wav, Tobacco,
nnd trade circles ireneraily yesterday, over Uic
arrival of the special train which Messrs. P.
Lorillard & Co. sent from New York to this city.
Tire tax on tobacco was reduced the Ist of May,
and, noting this fact, the Messrs. Lorillard loaded
a train with their “Tin-Tag” Tobacco and sent
it through to this city In order to be the Drst on
the ground. The result was all that could he
expected, and reflects great credit upon the house
which did it, as well as upon Mr. F. M. Rolfner,
their Western Agent. This train left New York
at S a. m. Thursday, Marl; reachcdherc at~;4s
yesterday morning, and the goods were all de
livered before noon. When it Is remembered
that the fastest passenger trains require thirtv
seveu hours to go over the same rails, the won
der of the affair becomes apparent. It Is under
stood that another train ot a similar nature left
New York last night for Chicago, and will be
here this evening. It is certainly enterprise of
a high order, and deserves to be commended.

The growth of most valuable Improvements is
usually slow. bat a marked exception to this rule
is the popularity attained by Wolgumott&ilewilt’s
Rheumatic Remedy in the short time it has been
before the public. Arguments are often vain, eulo
gjams frequently of little effect, but a demonstra
tion of value and efficacy seldom falls to convince.
Just this the Uhcnmatic Remedy has done and is
still doing every day, as the following testimonial,
one of many thousands, canfirms beyond doubt.
MR. W. A.
well known In Chicago as oneof the firm of U .T. > r .
Lighthttll & 8r0.,” manufacturers of 4 *LigbllmU's
Anll-lncrustator, ” said to a representative of this
paper: * J I have been troubled with inflammatory
rheuilatlsm for about twenty years, during which
lime 1 suffered tortures indescribable, in conse
quence of which my life was rendered almost un
endurable. I consulted with stilled physicians and
paid out large sums of money for various adver
tised remedies. My efforts for relief were entirely
fruitless until by the advice of several friends I
consulted with Hra. Wolgamott & Hewitt, wboeaid
we will refund your money if we fall to cure you.
With that assurance! took ten bottles of their Ape
rient and Blood Purifier, and to-day, thank God! I
am a sound, healthy man. My advice to people
suffering with rheumatism, neuralgia, gout, or
any blood trouble, is to cure themselves with the
Aperient and Blood Purifier. It will never fall.”
Among lift numerous testimonials to the effi
ciency of Hr. Wolgamott’s Blood Purifier is the
following from
an agreeable gentleman, favorably known in busi
ness circles by his official connection with the Pan-
Uandle Hoad. Statement: 11 have been a victim of
liver complaint and dyspepsia, and in mv endeavors
to tiud relief J. tsparedno expense. At various times
1 consulted with physicians of the highest stand
ing iu both New York and Chicago, only to be in
formed by them of their inability to cure me. I
was induced to try Dr. Wolgamotl'sßloodPunlicr,
and on the loth of December, 1877, 1 placed my
self under the doctor's treatment. At that time I
hud a large swelling in my stomach and an acute
inflammation. In three weeks' time I was greatly
improved, and to-day (much to the surprise of my
numerous friends) I am a well man.
In couclusiou it may be well to state that this is
the very best time of the year to treat blood dis
orders, and to ail those who are seriously, or even
slightly, affected with rheumatism. neuralgia,
gout, sciatica, liver, spleen, and blood difficul
ties, we will say, by all means consult Drs. Wolga
inott & Hewitt. Any ona writing for information
will please inclose a stamp, as all other communica
tions will remain unanswered. Call on or address
