Forney, the great and original Hancock "Hopper," uavd hi al leged influence in IYnnoy Ivanin for the success of the Bolter' ticket this year. The election of the regular Republican ticket shows that hi etTorU were crown ed with the happy result which usually attend theiri, Forney always was that kind of a "power." The patents Issued in a America to woincn for Uio year ending In July 1881, numbered seventy, ten more than the average. Most of the achievements of women in this direction have to do with household appliances, and it is highly gratifying to learn that the ingenuity of the sex is now concentrated upon the in von lion of a pair of shears which can be be operated by the average female with out exciting a sympathetic action of the Jaws. The St. Louis Globe Democrat figures the standing of the National House of Representative as follows, on the basis of the recent elections: Regular Republican, 14(1; Independ ent Republican, 1; Democrat, 135; Grcenbackers, 0, and Readjust era, 2. It t probable that the Rev. J. Hyatt Smith, ol Brooklyn, who is the Independent Republican, will vote with the regular Republican, and if so they will still have a majority of one over all the oth cr elements combined, with the chance ol picking up one or two more from the Grcentmckers and the Rcadjustera. The balance la a ticklish one, however, and a sudden death or other accident would change the aspect of things. It appears from the following letter, read by the new secretary of the treas ury at a reception given to him at his house in Geneva, New York, the other night, that he was tendered the position of attorney-general by the late President Garfluld, and declined it: Lawnkiklh, M kxtoii, O., Feb. 23. Mr Dkar Hit: lour favor or tlie 31st in at. cam to-day. I seriously regret you decline the attorney-generalship, but though disappointed in my hope that yoa wonld accept it, I shall remem ber with satisfaction your visit here, and the frankness and cordiality of your conversation. Thanking yoa for the kind terms of your letter, 1 am very truly yours, J am km a. uarkikld. The Hon. C. J. Folger, Albany, N. Y. Some days ago an item appeared in Til Nkws staling that the Rev. Mr. Tucker, of Wlnfleld, bad been brutally assaulted on the streets, without warning, by .one A. II. Green, who had taken ex ceplionto some utterances of the first named gentleman, at a temperance meet iog, the evening before. The paragraph embodied representations set forth, in a special dispatch to the Topeka Capital, and we supposed of course that they were In accordance with the facts in the case. But tho. accused party, Mr. Green, informs us by letter that he has been grossly misrepresented, claiming that he did not strike Mr. Tucker with out warning, and that what he did in the matter was not without just cause and provocation. Having given Mr, Greca the benefit of his version of the affair, we are willing to devote an equal amount of space to Mr. Tucker.

Boynton in regard to the surgical man. agemcnt of the case of the late Presi dent Garfield. Its effect will be rather startling, and we apprehend from the habitual disposition of the public to severely criticise physicians, injustice may be done Dr. Bliss. There is noth ing more common than for doctors to dissgree. We believe we are correct when we say there ia no class or pro fession among whom green-eyed jeal ously exists to a greater degree than among eminent physician. It is a characterise of the profes sion. This msy be the motive to some extent , of Dr. Boyntoa's statement; at least Dr. Bliss should be heard before condemned. It does not seem possible that Bliss would have at tained hi present and long atauding prominence in Washington unless he had earned it by merit. It does not seem possible that for nearly three months the eminent physicians in the case would have remained silent and submitted to the management and as sumption which Boyntoa now charges. Boynton was a friend of the Garfield, and practiced in the family, and yet fee allowed the mismanagement, which he now charges, and which was more than criminal, if he tells the truth, to go on without protest. It seems to us incred ible that such men as Agncw and Ham 1 1 Ion, to say nothing of the other, would have repeatedly allowed the publication of their most unqualified endorsement of the mode of treat incut of the cnae, had there been the abuncs existing which Boynton professes to disclose. He says that he gave up all hope on the 23d of J uly, and yet as late as the 30th of that month the telegraph report him a coming Irom the White House and Baying, "the President is decidedly better than he ha been at any time siuce he was shot," and that it was his opinion that his progress towards recovery would not be impeded again. This disagreement of the physicians Is unfortunate. It opens the wounds of the martyred man afresh before the pub lic. We regret that Boynton has so soon made his startling declarations. The discussion must be attended with more or less acrimony, which would not have grated so harshly upon the sorrow of the public had more time been allowed to heal the wounded hearts of the na tion. But now that it ia commenced, we hope the truth will be reached. We do not deny but that Boynton is eminent in his profession, and that his statement is entitled to weight; we simply say that something must be cbsrgtd to the score of jealousy, and that the public must give all an unprejudiced hearing before making up its verdict. GOOD ENOUGH. While the apathy which invariably prevails among Republicans in an "oil year" influenced to a notable extent the result of the elections held on Tuesday, the Democracy have no special cause for exultation over the outcome ol the engagement. ' As was to be expected, the Bourbon have carried Maryland and MUaifbippi, despite the fact that there ia a very large preponderance of Repub lican voter iu the latter state. The con test in New York was very close, but the state ticket is conceded to the Re publicans by a small majority. The Rcadjutters have carried Virginia, which ia the worst possible misfor tune which would have befallen the Bourbon cause. In New Jersey the Re publicans secure the legislature, which is glory enough lor one campaign. Penn sylvania stood by the regular Republi can ticket as against a combination of soreheads ; in Connecticut the Republi cans captured the legislature; Wiscon sin, in spite of a defection from the Re publicans of 15,000 prohibition votes is "O. K." lor the party of "great moral ideas," while Minnesota, Massachusetts and Nebraska all wheel into line with good old-fashioned Republican majori ties. In the language of Mr. Silas Wcgg, "there ain't 'nothing to bo low about" In the general result, so far as tho Republicans are concerned. END OF THE SOLID SOUTIL The victory of the Re adjusters ia Vir ginia not only frees that commonwealth from the curse of Bourbon domination but the result is accepted by all as mak ing an end of the solid south.' The moral effect of the Liberal triumph, in tho old Dominion will bo felt through out the entire south, and will greatly strengthen the independent movement which favors the breaking up of old political systems in that section and the inauguration of a broader and more progressive policy in the administration of public affairs. The advantage to the south and to the entire country of such a revolution cannot be over-esti mated. The magnificent resources of the southern states have already begun to invite investment at the hands of northern capitalists, who, in the hope of a better political regime than . has pre- vailed in that section in the past, have ventured -their money in the establish ment of those important industries which the products of the country so abundantly favor. The introduction of Yankee thrift and enterprise has acted leaven in the districts which they have invaded, and nothine is wanted save the assurance of those conditions which protect the citizen in the exercise of his civil and political rights to affect a sweeping and radical change in those stales which have so long languished under the baneful influence ol Bourbon rule. The success of the Liberal movement in Virginia means the political disen- thrallment of the south, and the begin- ning of a new era rich in prosperity for that section so highly favored by nature and fruitful of beneficent results for a happy and united Republic. All the vacancies in congress, with one exception, nave now been filled, The election of Nelson W. Aldrich to the senate In place of General Bumside requires a special election to be held in the first Rhode Island district. In that district, however, a Republican nom inatlon may be deemed equivalent to an election, at the regular majority is 4,500 to 5,000. The loss of the eleventh New York district destroys the straight Re publican majority in the house, though there can be no reasonable doubt that they will have the voles to control the organization and a comfortable majority on all test questions. The division on strict party lines will be as follows: Republicans 14 ixmutu Ureenbackon. ........ ...... s Keadjusters 9 ladepeadent 1 A majority is 147, or more than the straight Republican vote. But the In dependent, J. Uyalt Smith, of Brooklyn, has avowed his intention to vote for Republican speaker. The two Read Justers are tolerably , certain to follow the lead of Mahone, and vote with the Republican, and five of the Uren back er four from Missouri and one from Pennsylvania are Republicans. The Republicans can, - tnererore, com mand 154 votes, or eighteen majority over the Democrats, when needed, and fifteen more than the combined vote of the Democrats and Green backers. The sales of public lands for the fiscal year ending In June, were 10,093,000 acres, realizing K3,3WJ,000. KANSAS ELECTIONS. In Rice county the ticket elected is "mixed."

In Anderson county it is very close, the opposition conceding the treasurer and register of deeds to the Republicans claiming the remainder of the ticket. It didn't do the colored brother, Langston, of Lawrence, much good to change his politics. The Democrats scratched him, and he ran behind his ticket. The Leavenworth Times claims Hook, treasurer, fsarnes, surveyor, ana con cedes the clerk and register of deeds to the Democrats. Moonlight was beaten for sheriff. In Saline county: Sheriff, E. S. Rad. cliff, Republican; Treasurer, J. M. Greeley, Republican ; Clerk, J. Scrgent, Republican; Register, E. Wilt man, Democrat ; Coroner, J. B. Gregor, Repub lican ; Surveyor, O. P.

Logan reached his home In that city on Wednesday morning, and Mr. Tucker, his son-in- law, astonished him by calling him grandfather. The Bourbon county Republicans elect all Iml sheriff. Love, Democrat and anti- prohibition, was elected sheriff. The Republicans very foolishly divided on the temperance question. Butler county turns up all right. The attempt of the Democrats to elect one of their number as register of deeds by or ganizing an independent party, was a failure by about 600 votes. . In Elk county the Republican ticket was elected by from 150 on sheriff to 516 on surveyor. All are temperance men. There were three tickets, Republican, Greenback and People's. ' In Chase county the entire Republi can ticket, except sheriff, was elected. There were three candidates tor sheriff, via.: Republican, Independent Repub lican and Fusion. - The contest was prohibition, and the Fusion candidate was indorsed by the anti-prohibitionists and elected by a plurality of twenty to thirty. One of the hottest campaign ever held in Reno county has resulted in the election of the straight Republican tick et, J. M. Hedrick, sheriff, 20 majority ; McCandless, treasurer, 100; W. R.

Watt, sheriff, and H. Helzerman, register, were elected by majorities ranging from 50 to 105. It was the hottest and most closely con tested election ever held in the county. In the Tenth judicial district, Hon. W. R. Wagstaff, of Paola, independent Democrat, seems to have been success ful by a small majority. Judge Stevens made a bard fight for the fourth term in this office. It was a triangular fight. and Alden, of Wyandotte, the Republi- can nominee, is third In the race. I be race was a close one, the vote of each of the candidates being as lollowa: Wag staff, 2,833; Stevens, 2,700; Alden, 2,538. Mrs. Garfield has written this grace ful and womanly note to Mr. nail, a Chicagoan, who sent to President Gar field last spring a volume of photo graphs and autographs relating to the campaign: "Dear Sir: Previous to my illness I remember that General Gar field and I experienced great pleasure in looking over the remarkable book which you prepared, containing photographs of many of the prominent characters connected with the presidential cam paign of 1880. In my illness, which immediately followed, and in the hor ror of the misfortune which I have been called upon to sustain, a proper ac knowledgment of your kindness was overlooked. I write now to acknowl edge its receipt and to express to you my cordial thanks for the great pleasure which the examination of your book gave both General-Garfield and myself. I shall always retain your present as a souvenir of a pleasure which we en joyed together. Very truly your. Lu- cretia Garfield." HERE AND THERE. Esthetic Boston guzzled 741,604 bar rels of beer last year. According to reports the body of A.T. Stewart has been found again. It is ev idently time for Charlie Ross and the Benders to vault to the front. It seems that the laws in the District of Columbia are so framed that the greatest rogue can slip out of a very tight place on the smallest kind of a technicality. Mr. MacVeagh, Corkhill, or who ever was responsible for the manner in which the star route prosecution was conduct ed in Brady's case, seems to know mighty well "how not to do it." Delaware only turned out 300,000 baskets of peaches this season as against 4,000,000 last year. We should be pleased to sec that state raise more fruit and less Democrats. The announcement that a Boston man had three of his ribs broken by falling from hi bicycle the other day will tend to ameliorate, 1n a small degree at least, the popular prejudice against these ve hides. The first concert of Madame Adclina Patti took place in New York on Wednesday evening. This celebrated prima donna made her debut In that city on the evening of November 24th, 1859. A score or more of new witnesses were furnished Guiteau by the government on Thursday. It will take more than the defenso can examine in a whole year to convince the American people of the assassin's insanity. Governor Littlcfield, of Rhode Island, at the risk of being branded a howl ing idiot by Sol. Miller, of the Troy Chief, refuses his sanction to the bills for wine at the French banquet at New, port, Monday evening. The St. Louis and Kansas City dailies are so filled with local criminal news of murders, gambling hells, forgeries and defalcations, that they have not found room to publish any editorials against prohibition ia Kansas for nearly two weeks. Tho Globe-Democratic, while ventur ing the hope that there may never be mob law in St. Louis, intimates that if there is any place where" Judge Lynch might with propriety exercise jurisdic tion, it is among the cut-throats of that city. Wm. F. Ramstall, clerk of the coal firm of Cherry & Co., of Chicago, has decamped with $5,000. We don't sup. pose that Baldwin, the magnificent de faulter of the Newark bank, would per mit such a common thief to "shine up" his shoes. In a single county in Texas there are 2.000,000 acres of unappropriated land There are a good many people in this country, who, while they are apparently reckless regarding the great problem of future punishment for the wicked, still manifest a very pronounced disposition to keep out of Texas. We regard it safe to say that the effort to prove the insanity of Guiteau upon the ground that he once fell vio lently in love with an Indiana woman will prove abortive. The instances where taste is founded upon reason are exceptional, and this is especially true affairs of the heart. The question occurs, if the Kansas City Times reporter and the clerk of the St. James hotel were close to Russell, the murderer, when the fifteen seconds, interval occurred between the second and third shots, as related in our tele graph report, why they did not sieze him and prevent the murder. The liquor traffic is unusually brisk in the neighborhood of a large cemetery, but rarely intrudes into the premises at Evanston, III., where five bar rooms were open within the graveyard bounds. It was a common sight, before a recent reform, to see drunken men lying on the graves, and in some cases they were mourners gone astray from funeral pro cessions. - The anti-prohibition candidate for sheriff in Leavenworth county was whip ped out of bis boots, notwithstanding the fact that the county gave a majority of over 2,000 against the adoption of the temperance amendment a year ago. Straws show which way the wind blows. Queen Victoria completed on October 25th, a reign of forty-four years and one hundred and twenty-eight days, which is just the length of time that Queen Elizabeth sat on the throne. Victoria has now reigned longer than any other English sovereign except George II L, Henry 111., and Edward III. Take care of your liver. A great number of the diseases to which man kind am liable arise from a disordered coaditiou of this organ. Keep it in a sound and healthy condition and you can defy disease. Prickly Ash Bitters are especially adapted for this purpose, being composed of drugs which act on the liver, giving it tone and strength to withstand malaria. EMPORIA, KANSAS, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 18S1. PERSONAL AND POLITICAL. The editor of the Commonwealth thinks Tom Corwiu's home was at Leb anon, Indiana. The success of the Readjustcr in Vir ginia will doubtless tend to increase the affectionate regard in which Mahone is held by the Democracy. Public interest in dramatic and musi cal circles seems to be tolerably evenly divided between Patti's wardrobe anil her left-handed husband. The Globe Democrat runs up the name of Mahone for postmaster general. We thought Chauncey I. Filley, of St. Louis, had pre-empted Mr. James' shoes. Corkhill and MacVeagh seem to be "by the ears," so to speak. This pecul iar and intimate juxtaposition may prove to the government a salutary feature of the star route prosecution. - The practice of Dr. D. Hayes Agnew is reported to have largely increased since his connection with the President's case. This announcement will proba bly incite Hammond to another fulmiua tion. John C. New, of Indiana, is to be made minister to Ruasii. We didn't suppose that a man' with enough grit to chance a commission to the court of Romanoff in these troublous times of dynamite and Nihilists could be found outside of Ohio. Guiteau evidently made a mistake when he refused to consent to the em ployment of Bob Ingcrsoll to assist Sco ville in conducting his defense. The as sassin w ill probably realize this fact when he is told how neatly the defense "got the bulge" on tho government in the star route cases. OVER TEE STATE. Douglas is improving. Howard is without a postmaster.' Winfield is a great resort for traveling men. Wheat sowing is going on in Labette county. The Winfield carriage factory works fifteen hands. Wichita is talking about woolen mills and packing houses Stephen M. Wood, of Elmdale, is suf. faring with pneumonia. The Douglas Index of last week was printed so it could be read. Fredonia must be a lively town. It had two theaters all last week. The Times 6ays it costs $ 43,469.23 to run the schools of Butler county last year. Florence is the meeting point of a state British association which meets monthly. Several hundred dollar hayo been raised in Butler county to aid the expo sition society. A movement is on foot to precipitate the "Color Guard" upon the defenseless citizens of Topeka. Hon. A. J. Pyburn, an old citizen of Winfield, and once state senator, has moved to Kansas City to practice law. A half million sheep have been added to Kansas flocks this year of which Lyon county has received a fair propor tion. - - A. S. Dunbar, an attorney of South Bend, Iudiana, and nephew of T. L. Ilurlburt, is visiting the latter in this county. - ,.i -4 The Winfield Courier, always a good and bright paper under its present man agement, has "brushed up" wonderfully typographically. A person has been found in Osage county who went to school to or with Garfield. The only wonder is that the person does not live at Wichita. Eldorado is going to have the Fort Scott and Wichita railroad, the proposi tion for bonds to that end having been submitted in several townships. ' ; It is pretty tough on a woman who has buried half a dozen husbands to see that tbe graves of the whole lot are kept green. Conjugal grief multiplied by. six will try the most exuberant of wid ows. The Newton Republican trinmphant- ly cxclaims, "there is nothing small about us," whereupon the Eldorado Times gets in a sockdolager by asking the Republican man how it is about his feet. Winfield Courier: The United Breth ren have established a church in Win field under the pastorate ' of n. W. B. Lacey, and will hereafter hold meetings every other Sunday in each month in the court house. The Kansas basket manufactory of Lawrence has filed its charter with the secretary of state. The incorporators are G. W. E. Griffith, J. N. Roberts, C. W. Babcock, Ed. Russell, L. A. Gillett Capital stock, $50,000. . The Commonwealth says that bam Wood forgot to register, and was not al. lowed to cast his Greenback vote on Tuesday. It seems incredible that such should be the case, but this fact justifies the inference that Sam was not a candi date for office this fall. The political fight in Sedgwick coun ty was a most bitter one personally, and the Eagle made it mighty warm for the opposition, and especially for one Jocclyn. The little boss of the Eagle feels as good over the Republican vic tory as a boy with two tenor drums on a Christmas morning. Chase County Leader : While in Em poria last week we visited the book bindery and printing house of Graham & Ross, one of the most complete estab lishments in tbe west. Among tbe new machinery just put in we noticed a pow er press and a paging and nambering machine, both of the most improved pat terns. Eldorado Times: The chap at New ton who dubs us "Col." wants to settle his hat firmly on his head and throw up his guard. We're after him. That's nothing. How would you like to have to vote for a fellow on the "reglar ticket" who called you "uncle." Eldorado Times: Emporia has put up another big opera house and a mason ic hall, is to be lighted by gas and has just granted the Tight of way on her streets to Mr. Hartzell, of Topeka, for a street railway.

An -Interview With Dr. Boynton Ilis View Regarding the Treatment or the Late Preoldent's Case Special Dispatch to the Kansas City Journal. TorEKA, Nov. 10. It will be re membered that in the midst ot the dis cussion of Uie treatment of the late pres ident's wound, which discussion was pcarried to great warmth and vigor, fol lowing tbe autopsy, when it was discov ered that the surgeons had been entire ly at '.ault with regard to the nature of the wound, Dr. Boynton, Mrs. Garfield's physician, stated at some future time he would have something to say about the case, and would give some facts of the highest importance not generally known. Naturally enough these promised dis closures, by an inmate of the White house, and by one who is himself an experienced physician, with regard to a case of such importance, and about the treatment of which .there has been so much adverse criticism, were looked forward to with the deepest interest, and many attempts have been made to induce Dr. Boynton to I nv m w u... .ju u . i. 4. .... uaa declined, however, until to-day, when in conversation with a Journal correspond ent here be stated what he says are the facts which he had intended to give to the public after the excitement attend ing the death of President Garfield had subsided. While he yet lived the hope of the nation's heart for tbe martyred President was that he might get well, and when he died, after such a long and heroic battle with death, the sorrowful question upon every tongue, was, "Could uot this lite have been saved ?" That was the first question that pressed itself upon mc as the interview turned upon the doctor's friendthe dead President. I asked it of Dr. Boynton. "Doctor, do you think the President's wound was necessarily fatal r" He replied in hi quick, decisive way. "I do not." "You think that if he had had proper surgical treatment from the first he might have gotten well?" "I most certainly do. I did not say, however, that he might not have died, even under thete circumstances." "You think then that there was reas onable ground for hope of recovery ut first?" . "I do, most assuredly." " "And that the case was not properly handled?" "I have always been of that opinion, almost from the first thai is, that the treatment was bad on the start. After Agnew and Hamilton came it could not have been better." "You say then, doctor, that the pres ident had a chance, a reasonable chance, for recovery at flrst.but that in your opin ion these chances were all thrown away by the wretched treatment in tJtc pasc." "You choose to put it stronger than I did, but you reached the right conclu sion." "How long did that chance for recov. cry exist when did you . lose hope " "On the 23d or July, when he had the first rigor I think that was the date. At any rate it was when he bad the first rigor I gave him up then. Up to that time I hoped that he might get well ; af ter that I felt there was no ground for hope." i: "Why did you reach that conclusion at that time was the chill a certain in dication of the approach of death V "No, I did not expect immediate dis solution. The rigor was an evidence of pyaemia. "What was the occasion of pyaimia I mean was it unavoidable?" I "Pyajmia, you know, or blood poison ing, results from broken down pus deuid pus." "Had pyaimia set in then " "I think so. You probably don't know the public never did know that the president's wound was never cleans ed thoroughly till three weeks after he was shot. That is more than I hve ever said about the matter before, but that is the fact of the whole case and the ground for complaint of tho president's surgical treatment in the early history of the case. Subsequent developments fully corroborated what I feared then. that is, that pus had been allowed to lie in the wound till it rotted and pytcmia had done its perfect work." "You think this could have been avoided?" "Yes. You know what Dr. Acacw did as soojo as he was called as a con sulting surgeon. The first thing he sug gested was to make the incision to drain what was then supposed to be the track of the ball but which was, as you know, only a great pqs cavity which ought never to nave oeen iormcu." "Doctor. I remember that Crump, the white house steward, and one of the nurses, said that the President suffered great deal and would sometimes scream out that his t'tt lelt like there were a thousand needles in them. Did the President suffer much ?" "He suffered a great deal from his wound and the beat, and often com plained of pain in his feet, as Crump says." "Was not this pricking sensation an indication of spinal trouble?" 'Ut- was. I suggested to JJr. Jiiiss al the outset that the President's spine was injured, lie thought not." "lou ao not consider sucn an injury to the spine as the president received as necessarily fatal?" ".No. 1 do not. As I saia before. I think the president had a chance for re covery, but that it was thrown away by tue had management or the case dur ing the first three weeks, when the pus was allowed to -accumulate and rot, causing pya?mia." "llow did liliss come to nave charge of the case r He iust took charge of it. He hap pened to be the first man called after the shooting and he fctuck to it, shoving everybody else aside. - Neither the pres ident or Mrs. uariieid ever askeu him to take charge ot tbe case." "WW) wrote the bulletins?", "Dr. Bliss wrote them." "And who made the examinations?" "Bliss alwavs took the rmlse and re. piration and lteyburn took the temper ature till he was dismissed. The ob servations were generally made when the president was asleep, and at the most favorable hours." ' " And the other eurgcons signed the bulletins upon Bliss' report 'without making their own observations?" "Yes; they took Bliss' word for it till after they went to Elberon, when I sug gested to Hamilton that they were being deceived. He took the pulse '.hen. and it went up a little." "Did Uen. Uarhcld ever see these bul letins?" Only one t one of them that was ex tremely favorable was shown to bun." "What was the condition of the presi dent's mind; was he delirious much of the timer "Yes: particularly after the first li cor For three weeks prior to that Friday in August, Black Friday, as it was called, when it was thought he was dying, I think it was about the 25th of August, for three weeks prior to that he had been delirous most of the time. . Then his mind cleared up a little, and then it was, if yon remember, I claimed the president was better." There was some further conversation with regard to the case, but noth ing , of . special interest was de veloped That which I most wanted to hear . he said, and I have given it to you. He alleges the most startling in competency and bad management of case of surgery in which more people were interested than ever before in single case. He, . in effect, represents Bliss as having fastened himself upon the President, and taking charge of this most important trust . without having been called to it either bv the wounded President or his wife, and having charge of the case, he allowed every chance for saving this grest me to sup by bad management oi tne trust jie naa sumed. The picture which the plain bold "statements of the doctor presents. is indeed a distressing one to the friend of the President and to the millions who hoped and prayed so earnestly for his re covery. , it is mat saxi in ought or those saddest words: "It might have been." If tbe President, Dr. Boynton says, had had proper surgical care at the first, he might have gotten well. . The reasons he gives will . be taken for what they are worth, measured uy toe degree or com- potency of the critic who condemns Or.

A Colu Rlooded Harder-John Smarr Shot Dead bjr J. II. KiumII, at Kansas City. Kansas City, Nov. 10. The Times of this morning gives tho following ac count of the shooting of John Smarr at the St. James hotel in this city, lost night: "Yesterday evening, about 7 o'clock, one ot the most cold-blooded cases ot killing ever perpetrated in Kansas City, occurred in the office of the St. J:imes hotel, on Walnut street, at which time John Smarr, jr., a young man widely and most favorably known throughout Kansas City, was shot and instantly killed by J. H. Russell, formerly propri etor of the livery stable uuder the Thea tre Comique. At the time the shooting began, the office ani billiard room . was crowded with habitues of the house. while tbe dining room was also well filled with guests, it being the regular supper hour, and as three distinct pistol shots sounded throughout the building, the greatest excitement and consterna tion prevailed, and such a hurrying and rushing of affrighted persons as ha not been seen lor a long time. THE FIKST SHOT. The first intimation of the terrible af fair, even to many of those present, was the sharp report of a revolver, which was instantly followed by a wild rush of flftv or sixty perons to escape from the oftlce, and while the burned exit was taking place, and before all had reached place of safety, a second shot was heard, and in an iuterval of perhaps, fifteen secodds about the time occurring between the first and second a third was heard and then all was over, and poor Johnny Smarr sank to the floor with a bullet hole in bis body and in less than sixtv seconds from the time of the Itut shot bis soul had gone before its Maker. THE ARRK8T. When the body fell to the office floor. Russell, who had sent a soul so suddenly to its long account, stepped back two or three feet, with the smoking revolver yet in his hand, but refused to hand it to any one unless an officer, and as per sons who had . fled from the room for safety began to return, he walked toward the office counter and stepped behind tho rail, where he was shortly after placpd under arrest by officers Flanagan and Moran, and upon the arrival of Chief Spears he was escorted to police headquarters and a charge of "shooting John Smarr" recordod opposite his name SCENE IS THE OFEICE. It is almost impossible to describe the scene in the office of the hotel dur ing the interval of time between the hm and second shots, as within thirty sec onds or less the room was vacated by over fifty persons who had been loung ing about, chatting with friends ; some of them in the pell mell rush for cover fallmir over each other, so wild was the brake for the billiard and wash rooms and the street. .Noone knew which way the bullets would go and a stray or glanc ing one was as liable to str iRe a mend as foe. All seemed to realize this fact, and there was no delay as to the way or man ner of going.. , A. A TIMES BEFKESEKTATIVE was seated in the dining room when the first report, sharp and clear, sounded through the house, and quickly ran toward the office, from whence it came. As he. reached the screened door le tween the office and the dining room the actual tragedy was in plaiu view, not a person being in sight except Russell who. with revolver in uanu, was irying to shoot young Smarr, whose arms were upon one ' of the square iron posts of the office, when he was using as a shield for his body. It was a dra matic and startling situation not often seen in actual life, and quickly realizing the condition of things the Times repre sentative, who knew and recognized both parties, passed from the dinning room and called upon Russell to put up his revolver and not kill tbe man in front of him, AH the while the two men were playing a real game of 'UIJJE AND SEEK" with the iron post between them, and the words, "He called me a thief, damn him," Russell fired tbe second shot. At this point Mr. J. A. Uillis,chiet clem of the hotel, came from behind his desk and also ucscacncu uussen to give aim his revolver, "to put it up," etc., but in reulv the infuriated man whipped bis weapon through the air over his head in a very menacing manner and again at. tpmpted to gat a shot at Smarr, who dur- ng the tew seconds- interval iiaa not dared leave the protection of the post, knowing full well to do so WAS CERTAIN DEATH, while if he remained there was a chance for his life- Again Russell, with an oath, said ,-he would fix the who had called him dishonest," and turning fully toward Smarr, hi eyes and attention having been partially diverted from his deadly purpose for o lew seconds, waited for an opening to suoot, an tne time dodging this way and that in hi en deavor to draw Smarr from his seeming place of safety. At last, alter this sort of maneuvering had lasted fully fifteen seconds, which seemed as many min utes, a portion ot emarr s oouy pro truded from behind the post, and quick as a flash, Russell covered it with bis revolver, and with the muzzle not three feet distant, the fatal shot was tired. With the flash and report Smarr ultcrcd a moan or half scream, as if he knew the tragedy was ended, and clutching the post convulsively, tried to . STEADY HIMSELF, and then turned over a dead man. He fell first upon his knees and then rolled over on his back within two feet of where the Times representative stood, who. quickly stooping, asked the dying man it he wanted anything or any one sent for. Opening his eyes in a tort of dazed manner, Smarr attempted to make a reply, but death came too quickly, and what he would have said will never be known. Instantly all was a scene of the wildest confusion again, as the crowd Dourcd into the office from the street and billiard room, the central figure of all being tbe towering form or Kuesell, who, with the revolver STILL IK HIS HAND. tefused the overtures of peace, until fin ally induced to step behind the - office desk. The body of the dead man re mained upon the office . floor for a few minutes alter lite was extinct, in plain sight of the gathering crowd and white faces or the ladies ot the noiei, wno peered over the balustrade upon the horribleness below. It was tenderly carried to room 5 on the office floor by several friends, where it was viewed by the sorrowing friends and relatives pre paratory to removal Dy bit. canai, tne undertaker. It was the last shot fired bv Russell that' caused the death, the first striking the wall as Smarr ran after the opening assault, x ne second sirucK the iron post in front of tne dead man's body, about breast hiirb, as if intended for the heart, it hitting the post about an inch from the edge. The fatal bullet entered the left groin about six inches below the heart. , . Afeowt Blaine' A Maanifieant Home and a Princely .entertainer. W Arlington. November. 0. James G. Blaine will retire from the position of secretary of ' state at the close of this month. He has no intention at present of going abroad. He will remain dur ing the winter in Washineton, and de vote himself to preparing for the next national convention. Ilia elegant house in the neighborhood of Castle Stewajt, is nearly completed. It faces the south and stands in the center of a large open space, looking on the one side, toward the P street circle, and on the other to ward the heights of Georgetown and the Potomac The site of the house is a beautiful 'one, in the extreme north west part of the - most fashionable portion of the city. The building, when completed, will have cost its owner f 30,000. The material is a handsome ark-red brick, trimmed with fanciful stone carvings. . The style is massive and in the beet taste. Twenty-five thous and dollars, prooaoiy, will be spent in furnish ine. When completed, as it probably will be by January 1, the resi dence will ne one oi me center oi tne fashion and intellect of the capital.

In deed, the man's manner and address S lease and interest all "with whom e is brought in contact For the first time in many years Mr. Blaine will occupy a non-official position-; No one, however, thinks that this will de tract from his strength or popularity. He has large means. By the well in formed his wealth is estimated at over $1,000,000. In financial speculations he has generally proved as bold as in poli tics, une oi hi greatest source ol rev enue has been from - lucky ventures in coal mines in Pennsylvania.'

They feel that he never succeeded tcre in making a real place for himself: that he never approached anylhing like his . i i i - - . , , uiaguiuwiub leauersuip in tne House. Shortly before Mr. Blaine's retirement from the senate he himself realized that he had begun wrong. He had changed his policy toward the last and become more conservative and studious, and took greater pains to adapt himself to the more elevated tone of the senate. His experience aa secretarv of state has been valuable, and bis success much greater than even his friends could have anticipated. A DISTINGUISHED FOREIGN MIKISTEll who has served many years abroad, gave the Times correspondent the other even ing a general idea of the manner in which his reports to Mr. Blaine had been received. He said: ''Without co ins into details, which would be mani festly improper, I can aver this: I had many important suggestions to make as to our foreign policy. I fancied at least that I had found many ways by which this government could improve it condi tion abroad, and to every suggestion inndc by me I found ia Mr. Blaine the most ready and ever eneer listener. I do not think I ever met a man in public mo wno seemed to nave acquired in so short a time such a comprehensive knowledge of foreign affairs. He took in everything al most without explanation, and realized even more than I the importance of cer tain facts which I had to communicate. It was a little different when I came to make my report to General Garfield. I mustconless f resident Garfield was a trifle bored with what I had to say to him, and listened only In the most per functory way. Mr. Blaine was not satis fied with-.our one interview, but he fol lowed me up with the most persistent system of cross examination until he had exhausted all the knowledge 1 could give blm upon the various subject in which he was interested. Ho had - pro ceeded . in the same fashion,; I dare say, with every foreign min ister or representative with' whom he has been brought in eontact. ' Dur ing this last year he has ' become A OliOSB STUDENT. I regard him to-day as one of the strongest men in this country. ' Joined to nis wondertui personal popularity, be is now adding the fruits of study and defeat bravely borne, and I have no doubt that when . tbe , next na tional convention arrives he. will be one of the most formidable candidates in the Republican party. lie is really stronger, in ray judgment out of ollico than in it," - This same gentleman went further to say that Mr.' Blaine at present was avoid ing everytning in tne way or antagonisms.- He is on good terms with Mr. Arthur, and will remain so if Mr. Arthur himself is willing. There are dark pages in Mr. Blaine's history, but' it now belongs so utterly to the past that it would be difficult to bring them up effectively against bim in a campaign. He is the sole residuary legatee of tne uarneia administration. tie will join this claim to bis own, and carefully prepare tor tne luturc, wbicn now looks so brilliant to utm. His bcailb, wbicn for a time seemed so feeble, and which has fluctuated up and down with his varyiug fortunes, is now upon the mend. His eye is clear and bright, and the deadly pallor of his complexion is be ing replaced by a better tone and a more healthful color. While he will make his headquarters at Washington, l.e will probably at various times visit different sections of the country. He has in con templation a trip through the South, which may be made within the next year. Ills relations with, the boulliern capitalists in Virginia will prove a good introduction, and peruana pave tne way for investments for the South Being out of politics, be loses nothing by the blunders of those in power. His posi tion is therefore regarded by himself and friends as one of the best possible for success at tbe coming convention. Election Returns from . th Nevember . . - State- . ; -( CONNECTICUT. .

Aft.-r a lapse of two davs and communication with forty or fifty different participants the whole story of the shooting at Ma rion is given in brief as follows: Tuesday last, while the state election was progressing at Marion, in this county, Joseph liarnett, an aged white man, having just voted, was insulted by a negro at the poll. Barnelt raised his arm to resent it with a blow. Some say he drew a stick on the negro. But m-iore iie could striae, another negro, Frank Johnson, shot him in tho neck. cutting the jugular vein, and killed him almost instantly, (ieorfe Johnson, col ored, formerly a slave of Harnett's, ran up to defend his old master, and was shot by a negro.

Democratic candi date for county assessor, fifty yards irom inc scene, was rustled upon by the negroes and killed shot through the head. lie was shot In the face by Frank Johnson after he was - dead. Joseph Hodges, white, was wounded in the head. The negroes doing the shooting were Gillispie, Frank Johnson, Allen Burwell, Brown and Martin Malone. Marion was not the voting place for these negroes, they were from another precinct. . Will Vance, a white Repub- ican, is said to have given orders to the negroes to begin firing. As soon as the news reached Meridan, six miles dis tant, Sheriff IC Henderson, with a posse of seventy-five men, repaired to the scene. The negroes had all left. A par ty of twenty-five men went to the house of Ed. Vance, a white liepublican, and approaching , mm with a war rant of arrest, demanded his surrender, and were replied to by Vance telling them to "go. to hell." They were then fired upon and were repulsed. One horse was killed. By 5 O'clock in the' afternoon the re lief committee and the sheriff came up to the men surrounding the house. The sheriff called out to them to surrender. The white flag was presented at the front door. The sheriff met the bearer half way, on the promise that he would pro tect Vance and all in the house, should they surrender. It was agreed to, and tbe sheriff drove his buggy up to the gate to take in the prisoners. AVill Vance and his men gathered about the yard, anticipating no danger. J. Vance was seen in a stooping attitude, beliind the corner of a stable near by, with his gun leveled on the posse, but before be could fire he was shot and killed. At the same instant when A. O. Warren, of tbe posse, was pledging protection to the female portion of the Vance family, he was shot through the head by some one from tne inside or tne bouse, ana in stantly killed. The sheriff and Harding Jones, one oi tne posse, were sngntiy wounded. JOd. Vance escaped, several neeroea were seen to fire on the posae and run off. No negroes are known to be killed, but four or five are known to be wonnded. Will Vance was brought to Meriden by the sheriff in a buggy, eight miles, at night, and lodged in jail. No harm was offered him.' d. Vance, 15 years of ace. was captured, but was allowed to remain at nome. l esterday a parly or nve men unaer me direction oi tne Sheriff searched for Vance and the others concerned in the riot, but none were found: except tbe negro, Martin Malone. who took an active part in tbe riot.

However, amoavits dou bless could be procured to sustain any state ment made herein. The only cause signed for the disturbance is the doc- iri&B lh uuli k nut iu sue iaie usiuiwku for the negroes to carry ' pistols to the noils.

A special from Grand Island says that Sheriff Kil- lian, or tnts county, was caned upon at a late boor Tuesday night to proceed into tbe country about two miles south of the city to arrest two men who were making themselves obnoxious to a farm er's family. The farmer said they repre sented themselves as being hunter from Hastings, but they carried Winchester rifles and also being otherwise heavily armed, be thought Uiere was something wrong. Sheriff Killian, with a deputy, proceeded to the farmer's bouse about 5 o'clock Wednesday morning, ana round the men in bed, -lie asked them to get up and dress, as he wished to speak, to them. Killian saw at a gUnce tbattliey resembled Ed. and Lon. Maxwell, alia Williams, the notorious Pekin county (Wisconsin) murderers. " They both drew on their pants and boots,' and Alonzo excused himself a minute while he stepped outside- While he had gone, Killian grappled with Ed, and with the assistance ot tne larmec and , hi son. threw him to the fioor, and narrowly es caped : being shot .by Ed. They got bis revolver awsy irom bint and held bint to the fioor while JLilliaa ' en deavored to handcuff him, but Ed. gave a regular Indian war-whoop, callidg Leo.
