They will Reach Mammoth Hot Springs To-Day and Take the Gars To-Morrow. The President Fatigued and General Sheri dan Unwell. SOME 0? HATCH'S PARTY ILL. Special to the Daily Enterprise. National Hotel, Mammoth Hot Springs, Aug. 29.— The presidential party is now camped two miles below Baronette's bridge, where they ar - rived last evening, after traveling from Mud geysers. This is the last camp of the trip, as the party will ar rive here to-morrow, the 30th, and Friday is fixed as the day for taking the cars. Your correspondent is un able to ascertain whether any stop will be made at Livingston or other towns along the line. It is known, however, that the president has ac ceded to the request to lay the corner stone of the Dakota penitentiary at Bismarck, and the party may stop some time for that purpose, especially as Henry Villard and his party of ce lebrities, including General Grant and several members of the cabinet will be present on the occasion. All the members of the party are well, ex cepting General Sheridan, who has not recovered from his recent illness at Jackson's Lake. His trouble is supposed to be mountain fever, and will probably disappear with a change of climate. The president is by no means indisposed, but, though his cheeks are bronzed and healthylooking, he looks old and worn and stoops as he rides. The long journey has evidently been too fatiguing. The whole party confess that they will be glad when they reach here and once more enjoy the luxury of a civilized bed after nearly a month of sleeping on the ground under canvas. A few days ago Captain Hayes, who was in charge of the military escort, was ordered under arrest by Gen. Sheridan but was released to-day and is again in charge of his command. The difficulty was very slight and or iginated in a disagreement between the two as 16 whether the pack mules should be picketed at night Or run loose. An extra military escort ac companies the party at a short distance since the dispatch reached them re garding the kidnappers who were re ported to have started from Idaho to capture the President. While it is doubtful if anyone puts any confidence in this report it has been considered advisable as a matter of precaution to increase the escort. With soldiers scat tered around the party in every direc tion any attempt at kidnapping would be an absurdity and it is difficult to de termine for what purpose the story was started. The party were most highly interested in the magnificent scenery at Yellowstone Palls and oan yon and all felt and said that this was the crowning glory of the whole trip. Jack Baronette who has acted as chief guide for the party through the Park, has every, reason to feel proud. Pres ident Arthur has ridden by his side during the greater part of the trip, and has listened toBaronette's accounts with the greatest interest when any of the natural curiosities were being ex amined* Sheridan too has high regard for him as beside having been a west ern guide during the past nineteen years he was Gen. Sheridan's guide through the Park last year. Prepara tions are being made here at the hotel for the arrival of the distin guished party to-morrow. Rufus Hatch's party are scattered through the Park, the most of them being in the upper portion. J. L. Sage, editor of tne London Telegraph, returned here to-day seriously ill. This makes half a dozen members of the party who are invalids, including the chief and his manager. [The dis patch leaves us in doubt as to whether this refers to Uncle Rufus or not.] Will send further report to-morrow, after the presidential party s arrival, if possible. OUR UNMENTIONABLES. When and How Trousers Were First Mad* and Used by Mankind. "What did the first trousers look like, and who wore them?" interposed the methodical, reporter, going back to the beginning and getting out his note book. "I'm sure I don't know. This I do know, however," and the tailor pulled down from tlie shelf a dusty scrap book. "The first pair of breeches made in this country were cut of cloth brought over in the Mayflower by Mrs. Jane Thompson. They were of English build, and were what yon might call side-wheelers, that is, they buttoned to the shirt at the side—and all around for that matter, for suspenders were totally unknown. It was the custom in those days to allow the trousers to reach only to the knees on account of the high price of cloth. The first pair of full-length pantaloons came from. Joaquille, ill Paris, and were worn by Seth Green, a wealthy Boston gentle man of leisure. This was in the sum mer of 1894. The fashion spread rapidly, and dual pride in socks and well-shaped calves gave way to new fangled garments. Green carried the fashion to New York, and thence to Washington, and Congress shortly east aside its traditional dignity and cam© down to "long-cuts," as they were called. The fever swept ^ over the States. The pantaloons of those days were simply cut—two pieces of clotlY sewed together like bags completed the picture. They were without shape, but not void. "The story runs, by the way, that breeches originated thus: A certain wealthy sport of Paris, not being pos sessed of shapely or presentable calves, conceived the idea of swathing liis ugly extremities from the waistband to the shoe-buckles. Other diss.pated fops, whose anatomy had likewise been bunglingly put together, took up the fashion, and Joaquille, the great tailor, set the style a-going, never to decline. I guess the story's true." "Can you remember the styles that have prevailed in this country?" "Let me see—yes, they are all be fore me in my mind's eye. There were the breeches of the period immediately succeeding the Revolution. They were short, reaching only to the knees, most ly made of cloth, buttoned at the sides. The wealthy wore them of velvet, or corduroy, as the fancy seized them, or of doe-cloth. The first long pantaloons, as I have told you, were merely com fortable bags, and this was principally due to the fact that they were home spun—made by willing but unskillful hands. The first improvement was when they were so altered in construc tion as to button elsewhere than at tuo side. Suspenders were not until com paratively recent times, somewhere about 1840, I believe. Distinctive styles in breeches date from the close of the war. Then there came the garments tight at the waist and to the knees, where they bagged enormously, giving the appearance of swelled joints. The pockets were called " top pockets," and could be reached only by pulling the vest up to the chin. Later they were cut high in the waist and medium ia the legs. This was a return to first princi ples. The next trousers to achieve popularity were those miserable "tights." They fitted the neither extrem ties like eel skins, and suddely swelled to awful proportions at the bottom. They were the invention of a rowdy, and it was a shame decent people ever wore them. I'm glad they're gone. The hip pockets came into fashion along with the "tights." Young bloods fain would carry pistols, and, it being found cumber bersome to add another pocket to tha coat, the inoffensive breeches were sub- ject to the gross imposition. Tlie pres- ent styles are elegant, and a decided advance on any that have preceded. The trousers of to-day are as compléta an institution as can be wished for. There are well-contrived recesses for the watch, the pistol, the whisky flask, keys, knife, comb, handkerchief, pock- etbook— in short, everything that tha most fastidious man could desire to have about him. - ------------- About 1000 soldiers confederate and union are bolding a reunion at St* Louis.
