Thb readiness with which contributions were offered when it was known that Gen.

THE GRAND ARMY VETERANS. It was a proud day for the veterans. Everything was favorable to make it a great i day. The weather was In the best mood it j has been since winter set in. It the car nival association or the Grand Army, had ttie fixing nf it tbe weather couldn't have i been better for a public demonstration than it was yesterday. And then the occasion just fitted in at a time when the carnival associ ation was in condition to contribute most to j its success. All the confusing work which necessarily attaches itself to the opening of a carahal had been disposed of aud was out of the way. The association j had been enabled to reduce everything to system, and a more orderly send-off could not have been given to the diand Army boys. And In addition to that, the enthusiasm of the people of the city was just at the right pitch to bring them into a thorough harmony with the occasion. Thus it was that ail things worked together to make Grand Army day the most important and the most imposing day of the carnival. It was proper that it should be ho. There is no other clans so thoroughly entitled to the gratitude aud respect of the people of this country as our surviving heroes. If there Is to be any discrimination in favor of any one, they are the ones to be favored. There can be no feeling of jealousy excited because of su perior respect paid to our vrar veteraus. They are the men who took their lives in their hands and went forth to battle in de fense of the honor and integrity or our country. All that we are and all that we have as a nation is the result of their hero ism and patriotism. They are the men when the union of these states was threat ened went out and stood on tbe outermost brink of danger, and walked on the perilous ridge of battle. Theirs was a devotion and * sacrifice more unself ish than ever before illuminated the pages of time. They are the men who displayed a beautiful love of country that has never been equalled and a sublime devotion to her institutions which constitutes bulwarks of national clef case more powerful th an iron, brass or stone. When the integrity of the Union was assailed and the tocsin of war was sounded, fathers left broken-hearted homes; sons and brothers in the brightness of youth took last farewells of fainting kindred; our armies were filled with ar dent, hopeful lives as food for the leaden hail, the bayonet and tho grave. When the deadly peril of dissolution came upon us, hearts bounding with warm affections and brains filled with visions of peaceful and happy years sprang up from every little spot, from away up in the dark pines of Maine to the far-off mouth of the Columbia river, and crave all to country that God enabled them to give. The glory of their achievements is written in our country's history. Is it any wonder then all hearts are elec trified by the sight of the survivors of those gallant armies who saved the country and preserved its institutions? Is it a matter of surprise that all classes are en nobled and glorified by their pres ence in our midst? Oh. uo. We can not do too luuch for them, nor can we show them too much love and veneration. There are not a great many of them left to us. As the years have gone by since the war closed these veterans have been drop ping out One by one they have been re ceiving their final discharges and have been mustered out of earth's service. They are sleeping here and there, with their cher ished faces turned upward toward the flowers that bloom over them. Of those who still remain some have left an arm on some far-away battle field where swept the stormy and headlong charge under the bright folds of the blessed flag, while others are finishing the journey of life upon one leg. But we love them all the more dearly for their maimed condition. Yes, we esteem it the highest privilege to honor the Grand Army boys. We love to see them marching through our streets under the same old flag which they followed to victory a quarter of a century ago. It made our hearts beat with pride to see them run up the stars and stripes over our ice castle. Their mimic battle in the storming of the castle carried us back, as it did them, to the days w hen war was no mhiiicrv. but a horrible reality. Now that the parade is over and the cas tle has been stormed and captured, the Gi.ohk extends its hand to our heroic vet erans, and asks them to assemble around its caiup fire and recall the reminiscences of the long ago. JJY THE CAMP FIRE. Twenty-two years have rolled backward and we are in eair.p again in front of Peters burgh. Snow lays on the ground to the depth of several inches. The waning moon, veiled by living mists, fitfully throws its pale beams upon ;he wintry shroud in j which nature is now enrobed, giving to our . camp "a semi-sad and strangely ro ! mantic appearance. We have nes tled down In a cosy scooped -out sort of a place on the ride of a steep and rugged hil crowned with cedar and covered with forest trees of various kinds. These, with their bare, leafless heads and outstretched branches as skeleton arms in drapery of white, look like so many weird and speciral sentinels keeping night-vigil In ; a silent churchyard, and seem in | ghostly etiquette constantly and solemnly bowing to each other as they are swayed to and fro by the wild wind in whose moan a fancied mysterious converse is held with : invisible spirits, perchance with loved ones from far-off homes who have come jto commune with those of the dream ! ing, sleeping soldiers reposing beneath i them. Just over there bright sparks from \ some watch fire suddenly fly crackling up : ward, while just beyond passes a ' shadow along the enow path, and you ask 'j what it means. . It is only the corporal ; stirring the brands from their ashy beds j and. kindling a blaze by which to read over j the names of the "second relief." and the I figure beyond is that of the sentinel who, I '.Mill chattering toeth and every joint shiv ! ering with paroxysms of cold, walks bis weary beat and looks longingly toward the **HE ST.

There is only the sound of the lone sentry's tread As he tramps from the rock to tb* fountain. And thinks of the two in tho low trundle bed Far away in the cot on the mountain.

The song is ended, and we talk of our loved ones in their far-away homes. We recall the day when the regiment marched away. We still feel the pressure of warm, lovinc lips as the last farewell is spoken. But our boys felt so proud in the consciousness of duimj their duty, that all sacrifices were made cheerfully. We look around and hud that the boys who suited out with us are not all here. Up in the hj-piu! to-day we saw one of them. a pale-faced boy, lying on a narrow cot hi a narrow room, yet he lay there through the long day's pain and gloom and never made a moan. They hewed hi vi down beneath the blades of steel in last week's light. As I sat there to-day and held his wasted hand and heard him tell of the glad days in our distant home, and as hid restless fancy flew back to the quiet country lanes and to the cottage door where the swallows will come back to the sheltering eaves, but where he will DMV return, and as he spoke of his mother's prayers and of her loving words, I somehow felt glad that she could not see how the blight had stained her boy in bis bloom, and that her steps will never be beside his humble grave.

Hokatzo Seymour Is dead. Ilia death completes by a curious coincidence, a trio of distinguished men who, each honored by the Democratic party within re cent years as its choice for the presi dency, have been called away in MM last few week*. .In the death of ex-Gov. Seymour not only does Democracy suffer the loss of one of its most consistent and able -advocates, but the affliction is brought home to the country at large. Such men are rare, and the taking away of any one of them Is a loss confined not to one party or section, but extending throughout this broad land of freedom. In all those qualities which join in the composition of the patriot and statesman, in breadth of mind, liberality, comprehen siveness and political sagacity. Seymour stood forth pre-eminent A true gentle man of the old school, with an address of courtly grace, a quick sensibility of the rights and feelings of others, he combined a sturdy honesty and directness of purpose which endeared him. not only to all those with whom be came in contact, but to thousands of others to whom he was known by reputation alone. In the political life of the present day there are too few men who display all those qualities which will make the memory of Seymour illustrious for years to come. There is too much posing, too much bickering, and too little disinterested patriotism of the kind which characterized the Seymour school. Our country can ill afford to lose | men whose lives have been thus the expres sion of all that is best in republicanism or democracy, and in this respect the death of the statesman who lies asleep in a beautiful town of the state which he loved so dearly and to whose advancement his most earnest efforts were directed, is in every sense of the word^a national calamity. A CONTRAST OF MOUAI.v It Is a startling evidence of the laxness with which the English seem to regard moral looseness occurring in prominent persons when, despite the direct proof of his flagrant guilt which was brought to bear against Sir Chaki.f.s Dilke in a London court yesterday, be should have been allowed to go free, without even a formal preferment of charges. As usual, it is the woman alone who suffers, and the man responsible for her downfall returns to the high station he occupied in his country's i service, while his no more guilty part- j ncr sinks into a disgraceful oblivion which, as far as her former ties and associations are concerned. Is a3 complete j as though she had suffered death itself, j Although public sentiment is declared to ; have been at hist aroused a*raiitHt Dilke. it was not a short time ago fiufllcient to pre vent his return to parliament from Chelsea, and it is probable that even now it will not suffice to deprive him of the place in the cabinet which is aid to have been held vacant awaiting the result of the trial. The pe culiar outcome of the divorce proceed ings calls attention to a compari son between English ideas and cus toms and those prevailing In America. Here not only would a public man openly connected with such a scandal ! be relegated to political exile, but he would j also be visited with Kocial ostracism, lie would be held utterly unworthy to stand as the representative of a people noted for its chivalrous demeanor towards womankind and would be made to suiter the full weight of his fault, cither at the hands of the man bom he had wronged or by application of the severest possible legal measures. That not only has there been a complete absence of anything resembling punishment in the Dilke case, but that his party even stands ready a -rain to do him honor, is an illustration of the unwholesome current which underlies English society. Whether the impossibility of a similar state of things in this country may be due to an actual supe riority of moral sentiment or to the adop tion as second nature of those ideas which the Puritans did so much to inculcate, matters little so long as it remains a fact that from no court in America would Sir Charles Dilke. under like circumstances, have walked out free and unharmed. District Attorney Dobsbximer, bavin resigned in order to give his personal atten tion to the editorial conductor bis paper, it is expected that Editor Pulitzer will abandon ■Si intention of spending most of bis con gressional term in New York and will, greatly relieved, remain in Washington.

The unprecedented quiet that baa existed throughout Ireland since the succession of Gladstone to the premiership by means of the Pah.s ki.lite forces, is an indication that the ooufldeuoe essential to a solution of the Irish problem has already been inspired. With Senator Jones lay Ins siege to the heart and fortuue of a wealthy Detroit widow and Wade Hampton making himself con spicuous by his attentions to Mllo. Hiiea it would seem that senatorial susceptibility has the call on senatorial statesmanship. The suggestions that there should be no more secret executive sessions of the seuate, should prevail. If a nomine* Is to be stabbed in the back at these star chamber sessions, it Is only justice that he should know who were the authors of his undoing.

The Dilke-Orawford Scandal Ventilated in an English Court and Crawford Awarded a Divorce. Six Charles Dilke Strangely XTot Galled to Account— Mrs. Crawford's Sensational Testimony. Tbe Salacious Revelations Thought to Have Rained Mr. Dllke's Future Political Prospects. A West Virginian's Wife Infidelity Causes Him to Attempt Murder and Suicide. Crawford Get* a Divorce. .Loxrxjx, Feb. 12.— The trial of the di vorce case of Mr. Donald Crawford against his wife, in which Sir Charles Dilke Is co respondent, was begun to-day. Great in terest is felt in the case and the court room was crowded when it was called. Sir Charles Dilke arrived early and took bis scat in the court room without being recog nized by most of the people in attendance. The case being announced the petitioner's counsel states that the first intimation his client had of his wife's unfaithfulness was i on the receipt of several anonymous letters, the writer of which warned Mr. Crawford : to beware of "the member from Chelsea" (Sir Charles Dilke.) Mr. Crawford there ! upon made an investigation into his wife's I habits and found that she had been corres ponding with one Capt. Foster. This of i fense lie had condoned. Receiving further ! anonymous letters, Mr. Crawford taxed his ! wife with Infidelity. She admitted her j guilt and made a full confession, Ills a;- I tentions to her. she said, had commenced directly after her marriage. He protested to admire her because of her Kt^KMBLAN'CK TO HER MOTIIER. The wife of the petitioner had attributed the anonymous letters to the vindictiveuess of her mother. The petitioner's case rested solely on the wife's confession. The serv ants of Mr. Crawford*^ household, counsel said, would give evidence showing that tneir mistress hud been absent from home on the night she said she had slept with Sir Charles Dilke. The petitioner, Mr. Craw ford, was called to the witness stand, and cave testimony supporting the statement of his council. Mr. Crawford said he was startled by his wife asking him whether he would forgive her if she had been unfaith ful to him. His wife's sister had been shown the anonymous letters, and bad acreed that they were in the handwriting of their mother. Ho then told her again how much she was like her mother. Counsel for the petitioner sub mitted the evidence against Mrs. Crawford, but submitted none azainst Sir Charles I- ilk;. The court granted Mr. Crawford a cltj co from h; wife and dismissed the charges against Sir Charles Dilke. A con sensus of opinion is that the til thy revela tions made in the trial and the failure to attempt either to deny or disprove the charges against him has practically ruined Sir Charles DUke, A PAINFUL IMFKESSIOX. Although Sir Charles DilKe escaped un der the technical plea that Mrs. Crawford's unsworn confession was insufficient evi dence, the whole tenor of the trial has pro duced a profound and universal conviction of Dilke' s guilt. Justice Butts, in summing up, described the respondent's statements as clear and distinct and substantial, and said they compelled him to conclude that the adultery charged was actually com mitted. If the woman had been put on the witness stand and given the same testimony there would have been evidence against Dilke. Dilke' position was further damaged* by his refraining from giving testimony. The attorney general's inten tions Ml to put Dilke on the witness-box. His cross-examination would be on indis cretions in'life from which no man is free. This was taken as a frank admission. Dilke was unable to give an explanation. That part of Mrs. Crawford's confession describ ing the depth of debauchery between Dilke and herself is unfit for publication. The trial has caused a painful impression throughout the county. in regard to the state of society morals. (U>l» BY A WOMAN. A Case of Criminal Intiniacy Fol lowed by tlluodklietl. Special to the Globe. Wiieelixo, W. Va., Feb. 12.— of the most exciting and sensational criminal events happening in this city for years oc curred at '2:30 o'clock this afternoon in the bar room of an Eleventh street saloon in the heart of the city, it being the attempted murder of James W. Warthen, a well known retail grocer and a very prominent citizen by Morris Conn, an equally well known man, who almost immediately made what seems likely to prove an attempt to end his own carver. The crime grew out of a criminal Intimacy which ex isted for years between Wart hen and Mrs. Colin, the scandal having been the subject of talk throughout the city for a long time. The Colin family res dm* just opposite Mr. Warthen's place of busi ness, and the young woman, who is possessed of much beauty of person, completely captivated the merchant to the utter neglect of her husband. About a year ago a child was born to Mrs. Cohn which her husband REPtrniATED AS ILLEGITIMATE and from that time commenced a career of dissipation and gambling, evidently seeking to forget his domestic troubles. About a month ago Mrs. Colin went to the home of her parents in Parkersburc:. where she now is. The two men have always appeared to be on friendly term*, and this afternoon they met in Swarzbach's saloon, where they drank together and talked over business matter*. When about to separate (John u-hi.-a Warthen If he would have a cigar, at the same time putting one hand in his breast pocket to obtain one. Wartheu said "No, thank you," when Colin drew out his hand, holding a revolver in its grasp and at once tired at Wartlu'ifs breast.

Ideal underwear, which embraces the union undergarments, that combine perfect tit. fineness of fabric, strength, elasticity and ventilation, Is fast taking the hold it deserves upon women. Hygienic laws demand an oven warmth from neck to ankle, not a muffling of one 1 portion of the body while other parts are I left unprotected. These laws also discard bands around the waist and tight lacing. For fleshy forms, the silk union under wear is admirably adapted, as are, In fact, all of the dress reform clothes. The under garments made to tit everyone are usually monstrosities. Tneinvention of a waist that is a perfect 6npport, so that corsets may be dispensed with, is one of the most valuable Inventions. This does away with much of the fatigue that belongs to the burdens imposed by cor set*: the suppleness of the form and the health of the individual are furthered in a large decree. It is perfectly adapted to stout m well as slender tixuna. WORK IN THE SLUMS. A Sensible Chi- ago Plan of Feeding the Wicked Poor Before Preaching ° to Them. Why a Millionaire Renounced the Af fections of a Lovely but Frail Creole. The Knights of Labor Boycott Prison- Made Goods-- as an Editor. Correspondence of the Globe. Chicago, Feb. 11.— A novel and decid edly sensible method of converting and bet tering the condition of the dregs of hu manity that abound on the West side, principally in the region given over to low concert saloons and cheap lodging houses, has been adopted by several earnest work ers in the great cause, who wisely offer to the wicked fellows that frequent their mis sion something more inviting than songs of praise sod long prayers. "Free soup served every afternoon at 2:30" is the sign that adorns the dingy front of the old Adelphi theater, now known M the Adelphi mis sion, on Canal street. A tew days ago, in company with Evangelist Kirkland, who l.as the work in charge, the Globe representative entered the mission I and saw between 300 and 400 men, old, I middle- and young, seated in the audi- I torium of what used to be the largest vari ety in Chicago. No questions were asked of the visitors: they were not required to give their pedigree, nor did the polite at tendants demand of them a ticket, but each was taken cordially by the hand and given a seat. Then were soiled aud tat tered garments, grimy faces, unkempt hair, bleared eyes and rubicund noses; here a villainous-appearing sat. there a fair speci men of honest poverty, such as may bo seen dally hundreds of times In any great city. The old green room and gambling hell, where degraded creatures of both sexes were wont to make the air resonant with clink of glasses and rattling of chips, has been transformed into a kitchen, and two large cauldrons tilled to the brim with vegetables and meat were boi.ing merrily, giving forth an odor that would have tickled the olfac tory organs of an epicure, and no doubt made the mouths of THESE POOH DEVILS water in anticipation. And it was soup, too. with a huge piece of palatable beef in each bowl. A lew simple hymns, accom panied by a violin and organ, were sung with a gusto by tiie guests, then a short prayer, after which the soup was panned around in bowls, each containing a pint, and accom panied by a liberal piece of white bread. The services were brief and simple, not calculated to weary hungry men. and were heartily participated in. The idea orig inated with a gentleman of means, whose religion is of that practical kind that sug gests urst attending to the physical wants of the masses and then talk to them about saving their souls. As Evangelist Kirkland says: "It is poor policy to preach the gospel to a man with an empty stomach and expect to make an impression on him." The ser vices are conducted by converts, even to the music furnished. It is expected to con tinue the work during the next two months, or so long as the cold weather shall last. LIU. KNIGHTS OF LABOR, are determined in their efforts to boycott certain largo manufacturing firms in this city, who are handling prison-made goods. Five of the largest boot and shoe dealers in this city are under the ban of tho knights' displeasure lor using goods made at the Joliet and Chester prisons. So far as the city trade of these firms is concerned there has been but a slight falling off in the volume of business, nor is it likely that their trade will be seriously affected. But in the country it is claimed that already the mandate of the Knights of Labor has had a serious effect on the sales of convict-made goods handled by the boycotted firms. It is in the country where the boycotters expect to make themselves felt, ana the outlaing districts are being systematically canvassed by the Knights of Labor for the express purpose of ruining the business of all boot and shoe dealers who have prison contracts and sell prison-made goods. It is reported that the boycott committee of the trades assembly is engaged in perfecting plans to bring about a general onslaught on all classes of prison made goods, and their first efferts will be directed against tho various contractors at the Illinois state prisons at Joliet and Chester. The goods thus brought under the ban will include boots and shoes, cigars, barbed wire, wagons, dressed stone, clothing and other articles. It is said a general boycott will be ordered against these firms, and if neces sary local knights will go into the interior of the state and do active missionary work against the sale of the goods. A MILLIONAIRE'S SCANDAL. The police and certain of the newspapers have had arrangements for nearly a week for running great headline* over a racy scandal, involving the good name of a mid dle-aged millionaire, resident on the South side and a vestryman in a high toned Episcopal church. The gentle man has for a week past been dodging a very handsome Southern woman, who was making the search with a revolver. The millionaire had become smitten with the Southern woman, who was not all she should be. lor while in New Orleans she was under the protection of a wealthy sugar refiner. lie abandoned her because she showed some predilection for a Crescent City gambler. But for all her frailties she was a very handsome woman, elegant in figure and as fine as silk. A liason was carried on for a long time, and carefully concealed from the millionaire vestryman's wife. The millionaire played Armaml to a beautiful Camille. A plan was arranged for what the vestryman termed the lady's "reformation." A flat was rented, furniture purchased, and a cosy little establishment designed. But all these line plans went astray because the wronged wife discovered them. He threw up his hands at his wife's dictation, ordered the furniture back to the store, and hung a "To Let" sign over the door. The Canaille pro cured a pistol and went in search of Ar mand. while the police and reporters went tagging after her. An arrest was not pos sible for two reasons: Because of the mill ionaire's influence and position in his church, and because the beautiful frail woman is the sister of a prominent West side society lady. and married to a gentle man high in authority in newspaper circles. LOGAN AS AN EDITOR. The following concerning Senator John A. Logan has just been made public, or at least it has but recently appeared in print, and relates to the senator's experience as an editor.

It received the hearty support of the '-faithful." and the paper was conducted with vigor. After the nominations were all made and the can didate in the held the Democrat made tilings hum generally. Then came a rumor that the Republicans in the northern part of tlie state wanted an organ down in Egypt, and that negotiations were pending for the sale of the Democrat to them. Soon it was announced by the sellers that a con ditional transfer of the paper bad been, and that the bargain won la be closed as soon as tbe proprietor* could make a change from the Democratic to the Republican Bide. Logan was in Missouri when this news reached him. and he determined to return to Bentou and prevent, if possible, the transfer of the paper to his political enemies. This he succeeded in doing by buying the I concern outright at a ruinously high figure. Some of the Irgal lights of Benton assum ing duties as publisher, while editorial con trol and management devolved upon Logan. He with the assistance of his wife and a printer and business manager, ran the paper uatil the returns were all in and counted, showing the Democrats were beated. Logan then gave up editorial work for good Chejiey. r. iffht Cases of Trichinosis. La Salle, 111., Feb. 12.— Two children of David Funk are dangerously 111 from eating pork Infected with trichinae.
