Delivered Sheridan's Memoirs.
CHICAGO, NOV. 28.—The Sheridan
Memoirs are being delivered to sub­
scribers by the publishers. The advance
sales of tlie volumes have been less in
Chicago, it is reported, than in any
other city in the country. The reason
for this is not apparent as Sheridan had
many friends and admirers here, where
he resided for many years. In view of
the fact that upon the proceeds of this
literary venture Mrs. Sheridan and her
children largely depend for a compe­
tence, the Loyal Legion and the G. A.
R. organizations have resolved to push
the sate of the work.

—Senator
Blackburn has sont a card to the Louis­
ville Courier-Journal, in which, after re­
viewing the whole controversy with
Judge ltucker, he says: "I have heard
nothing directly, or except in the man­
ner just related, through the press, from
either Judge Iluckcr or Gen. Moore. I
shall, therefore, not give attention to
these publications further than this brief
mention of them. I feel, however, that
it is dtie to the public and myself to
inn Ice the following statement: I shall
always insist that Judge Rucker's con­
duct in making public a conversation
had with the president in an interview
procured for him by me was wholly in­
excusable. His report of that conversa­
tion was entirely inaccurate. I regret,
however, that the language I used in
characterizing his conduct was so strong
and emphatic, and will say, upon reflec­
tion, that I should have simply contented
myself with a contradiction of state­
ments I knew to be incorrect and unjust
to Mr. Cleveland and myself. As for
myself, this matter is ended, ami I have
no doubt the public will be glad to
know it.''

BON HOMME MUST PAY.
The Celebrated Btfhd Case Decided
Against the County—About 050,000 In­
volved.
YANKTON, Dak., Nov. 2b.—The cele­
brated Bon Homme county bond case,
which has occupied the courts for ten
years, was decided here in tlie district
court in favor of the plaintiff. This was
a case wherein William A. Brown, of
Brooklyn, N. Y., in 1877 purchased $4,
000 of Bon Homme county bonds, run­
ning ten years at 10 per cent, interest.
At tlie expiration of three years the
county refused to pay any more interest
and action was ultimately brought to re­
cover. Meantime the bonds have fallen
due, so the action finally involved both
interest and face of the bonds. Payment
was resisted by the county on the tech­
nicality that the bonds were issued by
the ehairniiin of the board of county
commissioners and the clerk without
evidence of concurrence of tlie full
board. The amount recovered by Mr.
Brown does not represent the entire lia­
bility of tlie county. There was issued
at that time §27.000 in funding bonds,
only §4.000 of which were taken by Mr.
Brown. The entire liability of the
county, under the verdict, face of bonds
due and accrued interest, is about $50,
000.
SOURCE OF THE MISSISSIPPI.
New Discoveries Claimed that will Com­
pletely Change tlie I'resent Conceived
Ideas.
SAUK CHNTKU, NOV. 28.—It has trans
pired thai the parties who have made
new discoveries as to tlie source of the
Mississippi are now on the ground with
assistants looking up all interesting
matters in connection with the discov­
ery, and obtaining maps and charts of
the country in the vicinity. When they
finish their work they will be in a posi­
tion to furnish maps and drawings of all
the feeders of the stream wiiicn is the
source, together with the character of
the land. A competent surveyor is in
the party, surveying everything and
taking accurate measurements of the
lakes and bluffs, together with the width,
depth and length of the principal river
forming the source and the smaller
streams by which it is fed. Compara­
tively little of what can be called actual
information is obtainable as yet, but
when the exploring party has finished
its investigation it will be in a position
to make public such startling facts as
will make necessary a complete change
in the geographical description of the
headwa ters of the Father of Waters and
tlie country that surrounds it.
NEW LAKE STEAMERS.
Twelve l.arge Boats to lie Put on Be­
tween Duluth and liufl'ulo l»y the Feun

DULUTH, Nov. 28.—C. C. Brown, of

stating that the company had organized
a corporation with capital stock of
$0,000,000 to build a line of twelve large
steamships, six to carry freight and six
to carry both freight and passengers, to
run between Duluth and Buffalo. The
report is discredited in some' quarters,
but it is claimed that the lioats are
necessary to protect the Pennsylvania
road's interest against the New York
Central.

The Wisconsin Central Goes
Further and Cuts Rates from
Chicago to St. Paul.
CHICAGO, Nov. 28.—The failure of the
managers of the Western roads to settle
the passenger troubles at their meeting'
last week has resulted in an open war in
passenger rates from Chiesigo to the
West, Northwest and Southwest'/ The
Chicago, Milwaukee and St. 1/uul, deem­

the conclusion that it will! lie better
policy to meet the rates miwle by tlie
scalping featernity with open Vates over
the counters of its own tickut offices,
and consequently reduced thq rate to
Kansas City and St. Joseph to j^y.50, a
cut of to Council Bluffs $10,'^a cut of
$2.50 to Omaha $10.25, a cut of $2.50.
The Alton met these rates at once and it
