oltlclally, As u citizen nud as u democrat 1
wish to enter my earnest protest against this
extraordinary proceeding. It Is an nflrontto
every democrat In Louisville, In Kentucky,
and In tho United States, It will provo is fatal
lilownt tho eXioltiiu. Thut the rcpicscnta
tivoof a party organization In tho thick of a
hot tight should be kelected for such a purposo
will be, nud ought to be, resented by right
thinking peoplo of every shade of lltfcnl
opinion, and, for my on u part, I cannot re
press this prompt expression of a senso of in
dignation ami outrage. Hkniiy Wattiiiimin,

ttatcd this ancmoou that both lllalno and
Cleveland had been Invited to lio present at tho

to "open" It. This port of tho ceremony will
bo left to Gov. Knott. Mr.Wnttorson's card has
u great deal of comment, but, from what Presi
dent Young cays, It would seem that ho has put
his foot In a tuaro'i nest.

The Story Told By Ensign Chambers Hon
tlio Vessel Hammed Her Paatago Through
Solid Fields of Ico and I'orctd Her Way to
New- YonK, July 87. Tho tteamcr Loch
Garry, ono oftho vessels of tho Grcoly relief
expedition, wns reported at quarantine u Htllo
bcroioS o'clock yesterday afternoon. At 7
o'clock sho was moored to tho wharf at tho
dry dock In tho Ilrooklyn navy yard, nnd F.n
algn Chambers, who returned In her, walkod
up to tho headquarters or llio Commandant
nnd reported. Firtccii minutes earlier not a
living soul In (ho navy yard knew that tho
vessel was nearlng tho placo. Tho Loch Garry
left St. John's on Monday last at nl,tht. No ono
hero recognized her as ono of tho relief
vessels, and her arrival was quiet nnd without
ceremony of any kind.
A reporter Interviewed Ilnslgn Chambers its
to tlio results of tho expedition.
"Yes," said that ollleer, "wo aro all pleased
with tho results of tho expedition. Wo should
hnvo been glad If wo could havo savod all the
noble fellows, but wo wcro fortnnato In resell'
lng ns many as wo did. The Loch Garry ac
quitted horselfnobly. Sho has sixteen plates
bulgid nlong tho wilier lino forward, and somo
are cracked. This is tho result ot struggling
with tho unusual amount ot lco with which
wo met. Tho governor of Upernavlk Fold It
wns nn unusually eloso season, ond wan afraid
wo would not get across Melville My."
"Can you glvo n sketch or tho Loch Garry's
passage northward J"
"Oh, yes," answered Ensign Chambers, turn
Ingtnhlsjournal, which wns profusely Illus
trated with pen-and-ink sketches ofimtnts
olongtho route. "Wo reached Disco Island on
May 22. There was nothing remarkable In our
run there from St. John's, except that wo en
countered plenty nriliintlne Ice. At Disco wo
w-o were Joined by tho Thetis nndlho Hear, and
aRor railing them, as 1 havo mentioned, wo
Started for Upernnvik Hint snmn nk.hf. U'm
encountered great quantities or lee, which was
closely packed, and wo had great trouble In
threading our way through tho narrow leads
oropen water. Now and then wo would seo
nothing but largo Holds or Ice, with narrow
lanes running through It, mostor them too nar
row to bo of any use to us. lu going up to
Disco wo Inula badtliueoirilcrry Island. Iliero
wiis a great quantity otlco there, and, us somo
oftho whaling Meet were Nilllng In company
with us, It was hard work to Hnd leads for all
hijiicla lo get through. Tho steam whaler Nar
whal lotind a lead on tho north eldo of tho lloo
nnd entered It. Wo got on tho south sldo nnd
began to push our way tlnough, The
Narwhal's lend wns a narrow one, and
tho had to spread tho lco lu order
to get through. Tho result was that sho
crowded tho Ico down on tho Loch Garry, and
wo shortly lound ourselves uncomfortably
nipped. Atler considerable pushing tho Nar
whal succeeded In forcing her wny through tho
lend Into somo open water. Then tho pressure
of tlio ico on tho Loch Garry wns relieved, and
sho managed logo ahead homo distance. Just at
tho end ol tho lead she encountered n heavy
piece of ice, which stretched qulto across Iho
oiKinlng, milting tho lloo with tlio main bodyol
Ice. There was nothing to do but to rain, Tho
Loch Garry wns bneked uwuy a considerable,
dlstiineo and then sent ahead under full steam.
Tho way sho wont lit Hint pleco or lco was
enough to mako u landsman slek. tho struck
with u crush nud burst clear through Into the
ojn water beyond.
"Then w o managed to work our way without
further difficulty worthy of remark until we
reached Upernavlk on May 2D. There, as I
huvo mentioned, wo heard ol tho grent quan
tity nflco above aud tho doubtfulness of four
getting through. Nevertheless wo pushed
ahead, but Irom Upernavlk on wo had lo light
every Inch of our way. Tho Alert had como
up to Upernavlk and had taken on her coal.
Tho steamed on to Join tho whaling licet, and
SOOU WU U'ern nil llirhttmr nltr wnv lntt-nr.1 I l.
tlctou island. Off Harolsland wo had another
alegoof trouble. Wo wcro ramming, pushing,
and twlstlmr our war through ttinn.. mmA.-
Hmcs In thp midst or It with no open water,.
a narrow lead and stnrterl to L-nthrnni.li It if
proved to bo a deceptive sort of a leud-ibr, tho,
Alert becamo stuck in tho floe. Then tho Loch'
ttnrry cumo io ine n.'iio ami entered on u
ramming campaign wun u view or getting lha
Alert out or her Imprisonment. Tho Ixeh
Garry rammed mj hard that she rammed tier
self last In tlio Ice. Then w u had to resort to
another expedient lo get ourselves out. Wo
begun blasting operation on tho Ico with
torpedoes, but wo found them rather ills
appnlntrug In their effect. Wo did not
blow tho lco nwav as fast us w o lm,l linn,.,!
to. However, by a persistent courso or
rauimiug ami uiasiiug vu managed
to force our way through. When wo had got
oursehes clear wo got out a hawser, which wo
madu fast to thu Aleit, and tried to tow her
out, Tho htwser broke, and wo had to rum
nud blast the Alert Iree. It was slow work,
but It hud to bo dono. Our progress after that
was slow oud laborious, but on June tai wobad
foiccdourwuynsfar as Iho Devil's Thumb,
when wo saw the Thetis nnd tho Hear return
Ing, and we knew that Greely had beon found.
Commander Schley, as ho passed us on thu
way up, had signaled tho Isreh Garry to go
back, as sho was not strong enough to foreo
her way through tho Ice. and she wns engaged
In endeavoring to obey this order when tho
relief ships returned. Together wo steamed
southward, and as soon us wo reached n favor
able siotlu tho lco I went aboard tho Thetis.
I lound Lieut. Greely lying in his bunk ex
tremely weak, but full ot renewed rnurngo
and ol tliuukfulucss for his rescue. Corporal
l.lllson, wlio subsequently died, I found al
most at death's door. Tho poor fellow's feet,
which weio amputated, ns you will remem
ber, nro to be preserved hi Ihu medical mu
seum at Washington. AH Ibu members of tho
party were In u Mid condition, which has nl
icady beeu hilly described.
"Coming back wo found below Upernavlk
plenty of open water. There wero Icebergs, to
bo sure, and many ol them were marvelous In
shape. I saw one shaped llko on urn. Wo
found a great chnngo In tho Ice. It was not
nearly so bad as It hnd been two w ceks before,
when wo went north, uud 1 dure say wo could
then havo steamed right tip lo Greely's station.

A wild, weird schemo about a syndicate
having been formed of ux-Gov. Warmouth, of

A l'KN'SIOX DECISION.
Evidence or tho Applicant May Ho Deceived
In Certain Coullngeacles.
Acting fiocrctury or tho Interior Joilyn has
rendered a decision or Interest to pensioners,
namely, Hint tho evidence or Iho applicant
inny bo received In certain .'ontlngenclca as
ooiuprtcnt i.rouf. In tlio ciuw whluli eullt'd
forth tho decision It uppcurs that the Kuldlcr
had received somu Injury to his .right-foot four
yt-cini previous iu ins cmiuirni,- Alio injury,
liowev er, was not of n character to prevent
hard manual labor, uud ho pushed tho medical
examination, was enlisted, nud received no
treatment whatever until December. lMftwhen
claims 10 11a vo incurred 1110 injury lor winch
the pension Is sought.
Tho uctlng socrrtury says tho testimony as to
the Injury prior to the soldier's enlistment,
uiuuku general unci in miiiiy respects contra
dlctory. Is relied uisin to supiort iho presump
tion 01 the soldier s soundness prior to enlist
ment. This, to Iny mind, Is 11 rule of construc
tion and an act ot Inlnsttco not to bo susinbicd.
Tho government subjected the soldier to tho
crucible nfmrdlrnl exniuluiitlon; nccepted his
sort Iceorumost laborious, hazurdouschiiruclcr:
becamo tho henellcliiry or his efforts, unit
ot cry iiumnnu consuierntion urmnnu mat ill
cases where there are doubts nrlslnir from tho
character and weight of tho testimony tho
soldier should havo the benefit iff It n-s ngnlnst

perilled hi llfoio mnltitstti. In flits mttislt
must bo held that the soldier's soundness prior

Wns then the nlhsged disability Incurred In
the line ol' service and whllo ou duty? The
record furnishes no evidence except thu lact
that tho soldier In lsf-lwus slek ut Hall's farm,
It docs not indicate thu character of tho sick

Plied. Two witnesses eleurly establMi that
the claimant wus Injured lu his leg or toot In
IM',2, for which he was treated at Hall's farm,
and tlio clalmuut tostllles In Ids own bebuir.
Through thu wisdom or modem legislation,
both national and state, the parties lu Interest
are pcruilttul to testify In their on 11 behalf,
Tho ono reservation of this beneficent rule Is
tbu credibility of the witnesses and the cor
roborating circumstunees In the case. Its Jus
tice nnd litimnutty is Illustrated lu this ease.
Hero is u soldier In tho netforninnee of his
duty, separated from his command, suddenly.

What does lie say? That he was lu service at
tho tlmu alleged; tlio record verifies It; that ho

wus treated by tho thK'tor, w hit-It is confirmed.
Tho soldier's character lor truth nud Integ

or the oilier witnesses. Tho combination or

no doubt 111 iny mind that the soldier's Injury
