Special to the Globe.
Washington, June 21.— The 17th of
-.p'rif President Cleveland issued a procla
mation declaring void the proclamation
issued by President Arthur Feb. 27, 1885,
restoring the old Winnebago and Crow
creek reservations in Dakota to the public
domain. In this proclamation the presi
dent declared that in order to maintain in
violate the pledges of the government with
the Indians, he warned all persons
In occupation of said lands under color of the
executive order of Feb. 27, and all persons
preparing to enter and settle the same, that
they would be permitted neither to remain
or enter. Such persons as , were already
there were given sixty days to vacate and
remove thereform with all their effects. If
this admonition was not sufficient, Presi
dent Cleveland declared that all the power
of the government would be employed to
remove trespassers. The sixty days al
lowed by the proclamation expired
the 17th instant. The interior depart
ment has received information that those
who are on the reservation show no signs
of obeying the executive order. This fact
has been reported to the president, and the
situation was a subject of discussion by the
cabinet yesterday. It is known that the
president has resolved to enforce the order.
If those who are illegally on the reserva
tions named do not vacate at once he wnl
send troops there and have them removed
by force if necessary. Secretary Lamar
fully agrees with the president
Uncle Sam Will Let Loose His Navy
If Necessary.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, June 21.— The foreign
policy of the administration may possibly
lead us into serious complications with
Ecuador. The United 'States steamship
Iroquois has been ordered to Guayaquil,
Ecuador, to protect American interests.
Although nothing could be ascertained as
to the particular reason for sending the
Iroquois to Ecuador, it is thought this action
on the part of the authorities is a forerun
ner of another peremptory demand for the
release of Santos. There seems to be no
reason to doubt that the Ecuador authorities
have treated the former demand of the gov
ernment with contempt. One of the mem
bers of the administration is said to have
lately discussed some possible foreign com
plications with a friend, and in the course
af his remarks said: "The principle enun
ciated by the president in his instructions to
the secretary of the navy touching tlie oc
uupation of Aspinwall and Panama will be
strictly adhered to. The United States will
not permit irresponsible persons in any
country to
and property of our own citizens by revolu
tionary organizations against the local gov
ernments. X To put down Preston we made
a great departure from the usages of the
country in respect to our diplomatic , rela
tions with other nations. If a similar oc
casion occurs again the same authority will
be used. While there is no annexation
scheme intended nor has any system of per
manent garrisons in the troubled states been
considered, whatever the emergency de
mands will be done. Beyond that Ido not
wish to say, for it would be the merest
speculation." "Then do 1 understand you
to say that there are conditions under
which our boundaries might be extended?"
he was asked. "You will please under
stand me as saying nothing whatever on
that subject," was the quick reply. "I
may have my own opinion as to what
events might render it necessary for the
United States to take
"These views would only be my own, and
60 far as I can tell may not be entertained
by any other member of the government.
The only thing I wish to state positively,
touching the policy of the government in
regard to its foreign relations, is this: It
proposes to exercise a proper - influence in
the affairs of other states wherever that in
fluence! is -required that shall be com
mensurate with our position among the
nations. To do this will require a navy of
such strength and consequence as should
pertain to a great power. Circumstances
will develop our foreign policy, It will be
regulated by the necessities of events, and
will be guided and directed upon the high
est humanitarian principles and in accord
ance with the needs of Anglo-Saxon civil
ization. This is all that needs to be said."
Grovor Doesn't Want a Vacation.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, June 21. — The president
has not yet found out what he will do for a
summer vacation, if indeed he takes . one.
Secretary Lamont says that nothing has
been decided upon and that all reports as to
his plans are imaginary. Washington
climate has agreeably disappointed him and
finds the White house a residence of so many
comforts that he has no disposition to plan
for leaving it, not even for the cottage at
the Soldiers' home, which had so many at
tractions for Arthur. Cleveland will,
when the dog star rages, probably leave
for the north-woods of New York, where
any one of half a dozeu of his old haunts
will afford the seclusion and rest
which will be the sole purpose
of a brief absence from the seat of govern
ment. The president's greatest weariness
arises from the perpetual combat he is hav
ing with those who have hunted up in the
blue book the salaries they want. His
ideas about.filling the offices are so different
from those who generally want them that it
makes the business the hardest of his life.
The president is making preparations for
his summer stay at the White house. The
carpets were taken from all the rooms ex
cept the east room, and oil cloth and mat
ting were substituted. The carpets on the
stairways throughout the house were also
removed and other light material will be
put down. The floors, in some parts of the
mansion, are in very bad condition, and
show signs of decay. The heavy tapestries
that cover the windows are to be replaced
by lighter curtains, and other extensive
changes are contemplated. v..

Washington, June 21. — There are" no
accurate statistics of the political pilgrims
who have been at this Mecca since March 3,
either in person or by proxy, but there is a
general belief that Illinois has done more
: than any other state to support Washington
hotels and provide dividends for railroads
centering. in the capital.;;; The president
said lately, in speaking of candidates: . "It
- is very pleasant for me to see a man before
- 1 appoint him. If a I candidate I for office
will go to the trouble and expense of a trip
to Washington, I am glad to have him call
on me and let me see him, but after that
is done, his presence here is of - no < service
to "^himself /or convenient 7/ to us.
When these appointments ; are - made they
•have to be made not only on the strength of
pleasant 'impressions .of - a man's appear
ance, but on the papers filed in his behalf,
'arid we could get along a good deal faster
with the appointments if so muoh' time was
not demanded for personal interviews. Two
or three hours is taken up with seeing peo
ple, often the same, one hour and over in
the morning, and then they insist on special
appointments for the afternoon, when each
man feels at liberty to absorb half to three
quarters of an hour: We get very little
time for looking at the indorsement and
testimonials people file.
Coming" New York Campaign.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, June 21.— Judge Norton,
one of the New York Democratic politi
cians who came down here last week to
talk to the president about the best means
of securing harmony in New York, gave
the following summary of the situation in
his city and state: "The new administra
tion ought to be worth 50,000 votes to us.
A new administration that gives
pretty general satisfaction carries with
it a great deal of good will.
This administration seems to be doing first
rate, lt has just begun, and I guess we'd
better give it a fair show: That sort of
feeling is pretty widely distributed and in
the aggregate means thousands of •' votes.
This is why I say the mere fact; of a new
administration that lias made a reasonably
good impression ought to be worth 50,000
votes to us. But, if with the help of this
feeling we don't show a gain
of 40,000 or , 50,000 votes over last
year the election is going to be
a close one. The parties are evenly enough
balanced now to make tilings very interest
ing. The chances are decidedly in our
favor, but unless the federal offices in New
York city are filled satisfactorily to all par
ties, we shall have a hard time to elect our
ticket. A good deal depends on the vote
in Ohio in October. If the Democrats
show a large gain in Ohio, we will carry
New York in November even if there
should be a great deal of dissatisfaction in
our party.; But if the Republicans make a
big gain in Ohio it is going to be up-hill
work for us." 77;; ;:
Maxwell Land Grant.
Special to tho Globe.
Washington, June 21. — Mr. J. A.
Bentley'of Denver, Col., ex-commisssioner
of pensions, is special counsel of the depart
ment of justice in charge of the prosecution
of the Maxwell land grant case. Mr.
Bentley is now here to consult the depart
ment as to details. He says there is no
question of these two facts: First, that
the original Maxwell grant which was voted
was 97,000 acres; second, that this grant
has been increased by the extension of
boundaries, so that it actually includes
1.756,000 acres, for which the
foreign corporation , which owns the
Maxwell grant lias titles. Mr. Bentiey
says that the difference between the orig
inal grant of 97,000 acres and the amount
which is covered by the existing patents un
doubtedly belongs to the United States, as
the boundaries were illegally extended. It
does not appear from any evidence . which
the government has yet been able # to obtain
that any prominent man in this country, as
has been ' reported, is implicated in any
frauds in Connection with the extension of the
boundaries. The' whole responsibility ap
pears to belong to this foreign corporation.
The department of justice is in earnest in
the prosecution, and has long been advised
of the facts recently given \ to the public in
the letter of Sparks, commissioner of the
land office. 7'" 7 7*^
Hay Will Resign.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, June 21. — There is a story
going around that First Assistant Postmas
ter General Hay is going to resign July 1 and
be succeeded by Mr. Nicholas Bell, super
intendent of foreign mails. Mr. Hay was
asked if he intended to resign, and he re
plied ambiguously that there were other
places that he would prefer. Mr. Bell was
asked about the story and said that he knew
nothing of Hay's intentions, ahdfor'hisowh
part .he would not take the place of first as
sistant postmaster general if it were offered
him. He liked his present place too well.
It is a fact, however, that it has become
apparent to Mr. Hay, and to Postmaster
General Vilas also, that Mr. Hay's strength
is not adequate to the arduous duties which
his present position impose on him. That
he will resign his office soon is almost cer
tain, and it is not unlikely that the way for
putting a healthy, active man in the place
of first assistant postmaster general will be
opened by offering some easier position to
Mr. Hay. £_B»ss_
Washington, June 21. — Postmaster
General Vilas when asked to-night if there
was any foundation for the statement that
First Assistant Postmaster General Hay
will soon resign his office on account of ill
health said he did not know of
any such action being in contemplation.
His "War Record Did It.
Washington, Juno 21. — It having been
charged that Gen. A. Kezyzanowski,-,who
was recently reappointed as inspector of
customs at New York, is an active Republi
can, a reporter asked Secretary Manning
about it. "Why," said the secretary, "I
didn't inquire as to the man's politics at all.'
His reappointment was asked 7: for
by a large number of good citizens on ac
count of his excellent war record. Another
reason urged as that he was in 7 a very
precarious condition. Although he is
rather old he is able to do the work of his
office satisfactorily. So I reappointed him
at a salary of §4 a day. -"7 ; 7
The English Situation.
London, June 22. — The political dead
lock continues, and there is no material
change in the situation. It is said that in
event of the Liberals retaining office,'
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain will probably be

The Daily News, in editorial on the
political deadlock, says: "The alternatives
are simple. Either Lord Salisbury must
form a cabinet and the Liberal leaders be
controlled by public opinion, or Mr. ' Glad
stone must return to office."

Dr. Tiilimiffi'S Sermon.
Special to the Globe.
Brooklyn, N. V., June 21.— Dr. Tal
mage's sermon at the Brooklyn tabernacle
tills morning was on the subject: July and
August Temptations. Before the sermon
he read passages of Scripture concerning
the gardens of the Bible. The opening
hymn was:
"Come wo who love the Lord
And let our joys be known."
The text was from Mark vi., 81: "Come
ye yourselves apart into a desert place and
rest awhile." Following is Br. Talmage's
sermon in full:
Here Christ advises his apostles to take a
vacation". They had been living an excited
as well as a useful life, and lie advises that
they get out into the country. When, six
weeks ago, standing in this place I advo
cated with all the energy 1 could command
the Saturday afternoon holiday I did not
think the people would so soon get that re
lease. By Divine fiat it has come; and 1
rejoice that more people will have opportu
nity of recreation this summer than in any
previous summer. Others will have whole
weeks and months of rest The railway
trains are being laden with passengers and
baggago on their way to the mountains and
the lakes and the seashore. Multitudes of
our citizens are packing their trunks for a
restorative absence. The city heats are
pursuing the people with torch and fear of
sunstroke. - The silent halls of y
are all abuzz with excited arrivals. The
crystalline surface of Wiimipiseogee is shat
tered with the stroke of steamers laden
with excursionists. ' The < antlers of Adi
rondack deer rattle under the shot of city
sportsmen. The trout make fatal snaps at
the hook of adroit sportsmen and toss their
spotted brilliance into the game basket
Already the baton of the orchestral leader
taps' the music stand on the hotel green,
"and American life puts on festal army, and
1 the rumbling of the ten-pin alley and the
crack of the ivory balls on the green-baized
billiard tables, and the; jolting of the bar
room goblets and the explosive uncorking
of champagne bottles and the whirl and
the rustle of the ball-room dance, and the
clattering hoofs of the race courses attest
that the season for the great American
watering places is fairly inaugurated. Mu
sic! Flute : and drum and comet-a-piston
and clapping cymbal, will wake the echoes
of the mountains- Glad I am that fagged
out American life for the most part will
have an opportunity to rest, and that nerves
racked and destroyed will find a Bethesda.
I believe in watering places. 777;
But I have to declare this truth to-day,
that some of our fashionable watering
places are the temporal and eternal destruc
tion of a multitude that no man can num
ber; and y^SBEASBB^iM'My'- MM
of this season and the prospect of the depart
ure of many of you for the country, I must ut
ter a note of warning, plaiu, earnest, unmis
takable. .The first temptation that is apt to
hover in this "direction-is to leave your piety
all at home. " You -will scud the dog and cat
and canary bird to be well cared for some
where else; but the temptation will be to
leave your religion in the room with the
blinds down and the door bolted, and then
you will come back in the autumn to find
that it is starved and suffocated, lying
stretched on the rug, stark dead. There is
no surplus of piety at the watering places.
Another temptation around nearly all our
watering places is the horse-racing busi
ness. We all admire horses. We want swift
er horses and swifter men and swifter enter
prise, and the church of God needs to get
off its jog trot. Quick tempests, quick
lightnings, quick streams; why not quick
horses? - -7 7
But we do not think that the beauty or
speed of the horse should be cultured at
the expense of human degradation. Horse
races in olden times were under the ban of
Christian people; and in our day the same
institution has come up under fictitious
names. And it is called a "summer meet
ing," almost suggestive of positive religious
exercises. And it is called an "agricultural
fair," suggestive of everything that is im
proving in the art of farming. But under
those deceptive titles are the same cheating
and the same betting, the same drunken
ness and the same vagabondage, and the
same abominations that were to be found
under the old horse-racing system. I never
knew a man yet who could give himself to
the, ;..';■ -
.Pleasures of the turf
for a long reach of time and not be battered
in morals. They hook up their spanking
team and put on their sporting cap and
light their cigar, and take the reins and
dash down the road to perdition! The
great day at Saratoga and Long Branch and
Cape May and nearly all the other watering
places" is the day of the races. The hotels
are thronged, every kind of equipage is
taken up at an almost fabulous price; and
there are many respectable people mingling
with jockeys and gamblers and libertines,
and foul-mouthed men- and flashy women.
The bartender •'. stirs up the brandy
smash. The bets run high. The green
horns, supposing all" is fair, put in their
money, soon enough to lose it. Three
weeks before the race takes place the strug
gle is decided and the men in the - secret
know, on which steed to bet . their money.
The two men on the horses riding around
long before arranged who shall beat. Lean
ing from the stand or from the carriage are
men and women so absorbed in the strug
gle of bone and muscle and mettle that they
make a grand harvest for the pickpockets,
who cany off the pocketbooks and port
monnales. Men looking on see only two
horses with two riders flying around the
ring, but there is many a man on that stand
whose honor and domestic happiness and
fortune— mane, white foot, white
flank— are in the ring racing with inebriety,
and with fraud and with profanity, and
with ruin black neck, black ; foot, black
flank. Neck and neck they go in that moral
Epsom; white horse of honor, black horse
of ruin. Death says, "1 will' bet on the
black horse." Spectator says, "I will bet
on the white horse." The white horse of
honor a little way ahead. The black horse
of ruin.JSßßa
all the time gaining on him. </ -, Spectator
breathless. Put on the lash. Dig in the
spurs.. There! They are past the stand.
Sure. , .Just as I expected it. The black
horse of ruin has won the race, and all the
galleries "of. darkness cry, "huzza! huzza!"
and the devils come in to pick up their
wagers. ;. Ah, my friends, have nothing to
do with horse-racing dissipations this sum
mer. . //' y ' .-. 7 -
7 Igo further and speak of another temp
tation that hovers over the watering place,
and this is the temptation to sacrifice phys
ical strength: The modern Bethesda .was
intended to recuperate the physical health;
and yet how many come from the watering
places, '. their . health 7 absolutely ; destroyed.'

Thousands of men and women coming back
from our watering places :' in ? the autumn
with the foundations laid for aliments that
will last them all ther life long. You know
as well as 1 do that this is the simple truth. -
In the summer you say to your good health:
"Good-bye; I am going to have a good time
for a little while; i will be very glad to see
you again in the autumn." 7 Then in the
autumn when you are hard at work In your ■
office or store or , shop . or . counting-room
good health will come in and say: : "Good
bye; lam going. "7 You say: "Where are
you going?" y "Oh," says good health, "I
am going to take a vacation. "77 It is a poor
rule that will not work both ways," 1 arid your
good health will . leave you s choleric ; arid
spleuatic and exhausted. . ■) .You .coquetted
with your good health in the ; summer time,
and your good health . is coquetting with
you',? in the winter time. 7 A fragment of
Paul's charge to the jailer would be an ap
propriate inscription for the hotel register
in every watering place: ,' "Do -thyself *no
harm." Another temptation hovering
around the watering place is to the forma
tion of hasty and life-long alliances. 'The
watering places are responsible for more of
the 7.77
of this country than all other things com
bined. Society is so artificial' there that no
sure judgment of character can be formed.
They who form companionships . amid such
circumstauces go into a lottery where there
are twenty blanks to one prize, in the se
vere tug of life you want more V than glitter
and splash.' ' Life is not a'• ball-room where
the music decides the step, and bow and
pace and graceful swing of s long trail can
make up for strong •; common sense. You
might as well go among the gaily-painted
yachts of a summer regatta to find war ves
sels as to go among the light -spray of the
summer watering places to find character
that can stand the test of, the great struggle
of human life. Oh, in the battle of life you
want a stronger weapon than- a lace fan or
a croquet mallet! The load yof * life :is so
heavy that in order to draw fit you want a
team stronger than one made up of a mas
culine grasshopper and a feminine butterfly.
If there is any man in this | community that
excites my contempt and that ought to ex
cite the contempt of every man and woman,
it is the soft-handed, soft-headed fop, who,
perfumed until the air is V actually sick,
spends his summer in taking killing atti
tudes and waving sentimental adieus and
talking infinitesimal nothings and ; finding
his heaven in the set of a lavender kid
glove. Boots as tight as an inquisition,
two hours of consummate skill exhibited in
the tie of a flaming cravat / His conversa
tion made up of "Ahs!" and "Ohs!" and
"He-hees!" It would -take 500 ; of them
stewed down to make a teaspoonf of calf's
foot jelly. There is only : one counterpart
to such a man as that and that is the
at the watering places; her conversation
made up of French I; moonshine; ' what she
has on her head # only equaled; by what she
has on her back; useless ever since she was
born, and to be useless until y she is dead;
aud what they will do* with her in the next
world I do not know except to set her up
on the banks of the River of Life for
eternity to look sweet.- God intends us to
admire music - and fair faces and graceful
step; but amid ■'• the j hcartlessness and the
inflation and the fantastic influences of our
modem watering places, beware how you
make life-long covenants. 7 . '■'••*'
Another temptation that will hover over
the watering place is that to baneful litera
ture. Almost every one- starting off for the
summer takes some reading matter. It is a
book out of the library or off the book-stand
or bought of the boy hawking books through
the cars. I really believe there is more
.pestiferous trash re#iAv*&«ng the intelligent
classes in .1 and August than '•<_» all the
other g ten mouths of the year. ' * Men and
women who at home, would not be satisfied
with a book that was not really sensible, 1
found sitting on the hotel piazza or under
the trees reading books the index of which
would make them blush if -the knew that
you knew • what the book 'was.''
literary POISON
in August is as bad as literary poison in
December Mark that.' Do not let the
frogs and the lice of a corrupt printing
press jump and crawl into your Saratoga or
White mountain valise. -Would it not be
an awful thing tor you to :be struck with
lightning some day when you had in your
hand one of these .paper-covered romances
— the hero a Parisian roue, the heroine an
unprincipled . flirt — chapters In the books
that you would not read to your children at
the rate of a hundred dollars a line. Throw
out all of that stuff from your summer, bag
gage. Are ■:. there ; not good books that are
easy to read— books of entertaining • travel,
books of congenial history, beoks of pure
fun, books of poetry ringing with - merry
canto, books of fine engraving,' books' that
will rest the mind as well as purify the
heart and elevate the whole heart? . 7 My
hearers, there will riot be an hour between
this and the day of your death when * you
can afford to read a book lacking in moral
principle. MM:. 7777 -
Another temptation hovering all around
our watering .'places is to intoxicating bev
erages. lam told that it is becoming more
and more fashionable for women to drinks
I care not how well a woman may dress, if
she has taken enough of wine to flush her
cheek and put a glassiness on her eyes, she
is intoxicated. She may be handed into a'
$2,500 carriage and have diamonds enough
to confound the Tiffanys, she is intoxicated.
She may be a graduate of Packer institute
and the daughter of some man in danger of
being nominated for the presidency,"
SHE IS drunk.
You may have a larger vocabulary than I
have and you may say in regard to her that
she is "convivial," /or she is " "merry, 'i or
she is "festive," or she is "exhilarated,"'
but you cannot .with . all S your' garlands of
verbiage cover up the plain fact that it is an
old-fashioned-; ; case' of .< drunk. Now
the /watering places are ' full iof temp
tations to . men and .. women/ 7 to
tipple. At the close of the tenpin
or billiard game they tipple, at the close of
the cotillion they; tipple. ■ Seated on the
piazza cooling themselves off they tipple.
The tinged /glasses come around with
bright straws, and they tipple. First they
take "light wines" as they call them; but
"light wines" are heavy enough to debase
the appetite. 7 There is not a Very long road
between champagne at $5 a .bottle and
whisky at 5 cents a glass. . Satan 7 has
three or four grades down which he takes
men to destruction. : One man" he takes up
and through ■: one spree pitches . him into
eternal darkness. That is ■ a rare : case.
Very seldom ; indeed can you find a man
who* will be such a fool as that. Satan will
take another man to a grade, to . a descent

Camas, Idaho, June 21.-— Four Indians
were killed yesterday at Kossfork agency,

couple of Bannocks, who had been depre
dating on the)agency stock. Learning they
were about to be arrested for their thefts
they drew the Indian police from the
agency this forenoon and opening fire upon
them they killed two and wounded a third,
the others escaping. Later ; in ' the day
about two hundred police surrounded the
thieves hear the agency arid '; riddled them
with bullets. Returning to the agency the
police appeared crazed with excitement for
a time. A general outbreak seemed immi

and friends at: the agency. The agent
finally succeeded in reducing them to quiet.

Less Exercise, but He Worked for
a Time on His Book.
'. Mt. McGregor, ;N. V. , June , 21. — Gen. ,
Grant has slept- nine hours since he retired
last night. ' 'He is' now being dressed and'
will be out soon," said Dr. Douglas, as he
chattee with a caller at the , Grant j cottage
between 12 and 1 to-day. The doctor fur
ther explained that although 1 the general
went to bed a little after 9 y last
night, he, did not sleep until .about
11 ' o'clock. From , that time
through the ■ night the patient has slept
well, with few breaks of wakefulness, and
the doctor had not been called until 7 this
morning, when . he cleared the . general's
throat and applied cocoaine to it. At that
time the general's ■ voice had been clearer
than at any time since, his .arrival: here.
When the doctor was called •at 7 the pa
tient's pulse was ■ sixty-eight, v but after he
had become thoroughly aroused.b y the
doctor working over him the pulse increased
four beats per i minute. y The I general re
mained , in 7 his bed of chairs all
through the forenoon. It was after md
day when he got up and yit was about 1
when he made his appearance on the piazza.
He wore the new suit which 7 he donned
yesterday, and seated himself in a willow
arm chair on the north veranda of the cot
tage. When a caller at this time asked the
doctor how the patient found himself when
he arose, he was told that the general was
decidedly better, that all the symptoms
were v decidedly improved over ; yesterday.
The general's -
as when he awoke in ■ the , morning,- but it
was quite audible. After listening ten min
utes to conversation between members of'
the family the general walked -into the
room used as an office, took up a paper, re
turned to his chair, put -on. his spectacles
and began writing. While so .engaged the
family was called in to lunch, and the doc
tor : having . first r wrapped ; a , blanket
around the ; patient's : leg, went %up
to the hotel for ; his lunch.
The general was thus left' alone on the
piazza and he wrote steadily for three
quarters of an hour, until 2 o'clock. ; Then
he handed his pad arid manuscript to Har
rison, who took them inside." • • Another
block of war history had been prepared for
insertion at the proper place in the general's
memoirs.-. When the little mountain en
gine pulled its two little cars up from Sara
toga at 3:20 p. m. , and 7 unloaded a
hundred . people on - 7 the ', platform :of
the | little rustic depot on: the top of
the mountain, Gen. Grant was sitting upon
the cottage stoop.' The visitors; strolled up
the slope past the cottage •in a procession
of two and three. An impulse was obeyed
to salute the ' general with lifted " hats i and
pleased to see visitors who do , not talk
to him and tire/ him, removed his silk hat
several g times from his . head with ' firm
flourishes and 7 >.'.-'V
My. iyy returned THE GREETING. y '
7 The old guard, Willets, in Grand Army
uniform, stood at the foot |of the steps jto
prevent unduly curious persons from crowd
ing near or speaking to the generals ., Black
clouds had drifted over the mountain in the
morning and rain fell briskly for y ten 'min
utes, but in the afternoon the sky was mot
tied with spaces of sunshine and a please
ant . breeze was blowing -;-.'■: made - : fra
grant •by the . odors from the pin
trees % and /" hemlocks! The 7. general,
though coughing a trifle more'- than yester
day, was .having a peaceful Sunday, quite
different from '■ that which he - spent in the
super-heated 'city a week; 1 ago. v' After the
family had dined ', to-night the ? general v sat
with J them on the piazza till nearly 8, when
he went within doors and did not reappear.
He ' had walked^ less ; .than' usual dur
ing " the. - day, • but , writing - had drawn
on the strength usually "devoted .to
exercise. Between 8 and 9 o'clock Dr.
Douglas saw his . patient composed in a
chair forthq, night, but the general did not
fall asleep till . 10:30. Soon after this the
doctor, in answer to an . inquiry, -said \ that
the general ; had complained of -some pain
during the evening, but it was soon relieved.
The area of the outside' swelling was less
than last Sunday, and the 'throat no worse.
The amount of expectoration was not mate
rially increased or diminished. "■■ The physi
cian said there was no reason more than
usual to apprehend a wakeful 'night for the
general, and emphasized his ; assurance by
going to bed at 11 o'clock.' . A little while
after, the lights in the cottage were put out,
except the usual light in the general's room.
Cattle Men in Trouble.
St. Louis, June 21.— Advices / from
Northern Texas are to the effect that ; seri
ous trouble is looked for in Panhandle over
the driving of Southern Texas cattle through
Kansas. Thousands of cattle are going up
the Ft. Worth & Denver railway, to be un
loaded at Harrold and then driven through.'
It is claimed these cattle are diseased, and
if allowed to go on will ; spread Texas
fever along the line ' they . travel.'/ The
Kansas ' men are determined .' to resist
with all the y means in \ their {power ' any
effort to drive Southern Texas cattle through
the neutral strip, or No Man's Land, as jit
is called. y It is said that t the promise of
Secretary Lamar has ; been .'obtained to in
terpose the strong arm of the government to
prevent it, and that | a United States mar
shal with a strong posse,' armed '». with gov
ernment authority, will by Monday next
meet the first/ herd bound for [Kansas and
turn them back or prevent their entrance
into the neutral strip. /^/rhey Southern
Texas men are y very angry y'y over
the matter, and 7. pronounce the
scare without reason. They say, their cat
tle are healthy and they/will - fight ; before
their rights shall be subverted. They are
determined to drive • into' Kansas arid claim
Sayretary Lamar has guaranteed- them pro
tection to go through arid has notified Kan
sas men accordingly. 7 \ Cool * headed cattle
men say there will be trouble and that the
government should call a halt on the \ trail
till the question can be investigated and the
true facts ascertained. In connection with

ing him that 60,000 head of Texas cattle

Sir Henry Tyler's Views.
Sir Henry Tyler, president of the Grand
Trunk, and party, were in Chicago Satur
day. > Being / interviewed, 1 Sir ' Henry said
the principal object of his visit to this •
country is to inspect the Grand Trunk sys
tem, which now : comprises between ,4,000
and 5,000 miles of road, and also see what
can be done toward stopping f the mad and 7
senseless war between the I. Eastern roads.
Not only are the railroads of . this . country
suffering ; severely from • the rate war, but
they | are | also g suffering from the want of
business. • "There are other reasons," he
said, . "besides the' reckless ; competition
for the ; existing demoralization in . rates. /
The paralleling of roads where none were
needed has much to do with it. | There is
West Shore trying to divide the business
with the New York Central, and the Van
derbilt interest ; is constructing the South
Pennsylvania, ■ which ! Is virtually ..." another
West Shore against the Pennsylvania." 7 1 ■.
think it is the desire of the trunk line pres
idents to ' harmonize then: . differences and
secure a restoration of rates. But there are
circumstances - that prevent them from re
establishing peaceful relations. "'-. The Grand |
Trunk is entirely for peace and harmony.

would ' like to secure the West Shore 'if it

Interlocking" Switch, System. ~
7 A large number of ; the most prominent
railroad officials 7 in j St.' Paul- and Minne
apolis gathered at the. railway crossing on
Fourth street yesterday morning at ilO
o'clock to witness the first test of the inter
locking switch system, which" is introduced
into the Northwest by the Manitoba Rail
way company. ; - Much has been stated about i
this system of switch moving, and of cours< I
a great. deal of interest was taken in the re
sult of the test. But it is scarcely hemes'
sary to ■"■ state that it gave ; satisfaction
for wherever it has been put . in use, not i
word has been said ill favoring it. , Th<
patent was first brought before the publi<
in England, where all :] railways are subjec;
to inspection by the board of trade, whict
appoints commissioners to look after them,
These commissioners were so pleased .wit?
the new arrangement for opening and lock*
ing switches, that no .-. railway is permitted
to be without one at any of its termini juno
tion points, or any large station. 7
.Itis so perfect a concern J that danger of
collision is almost an impossibility. . Eacr
switch is connected by rods to two leven.
in the cabin, which . move them. Eacl
switch has also a lock which is connected
by rods to two other levers in the cabin,
Each switch is fixed with a patent point t(
another lever in the cabin, so . that - aftel
the switch is '■>• moved for trains, "it
must be . . locked . before - the
next switch is moved. After j all tha
switches are set for "a certain movement of
trains clear signals can be given which lock
and hold all - switches for that movement
until the train is over the last switch. ; The
clearing of that signal locks every other sig
nal to danger, and. locks every switch so
that it can , not ; be moved to allow other,
trains to cross over before all signals are
turned from danger to their normal condi
tion by all the levers being placed forward.
Since the inauguration into America of
this interlocking switch system, over five
hundred have been adopted by the principal
Eastern roads and nearly all of the lines
terminating at ..- Chicago. .u'i '.';■■ yi^M-r
Replacing: With Heavier-Rails.
The Chicago & Northwestern railway Is
relaying its track between Milwaukee and
Chicago with steel rails weighing sixty-five
pounds to the yard. . The traffic on this
road has increased so ' rapidly that the com- /
. pany deemed a heavier rail " a necessity. /
Some of the steel rails being removed were '
made by the * North : -Chicago Rolling Mill
company in 1871 and 1872, and were laid '
in those -years. A close examination
showed that they were in \ excellent
condition, worn slightly but very even
ly on their face, the ends were not battered
at all. . They were • of . fifty-six ; pounds
weight to the yard, and are to be laid on
another track, where it . is estimated they
will last from six to seven years longer,. the
evidence being plain that the metal is of ' an
exception ably good quality. / : *-7
