tils Treatment of Public Men
and Labor Unions Always
The Republican candidate for vice
president owes all his political promi
nence to his connection with the New
York Tribune. This is admitted, says
the New York World. Whitelaw Reid
the diplomat would never have existed
but for Whitelaw Reid the editor.
Whitelaw Reid the candidate is the
natural outgrowth of Whitelaw Reid,
chief of staff of the senior Republican
organ. Mr. Reid's history as the Trib
une's editor, therefore, is the history of
his public life. It began on May 15, 1872,
when Horace Greeley laid down the
reins of control in the following card,
printed at the head of the Tribune's^
editorial columns:
The Tribune has ceased to be a party
organ, but the unexpected nomination of its
editor nt Cincinnati seems to involve it in a
new embarrassment. All must be aware that
the position of a journalist, who is at the
same time a candidate, is at best irksome and
difficult— he is fettered in action aud re
strained in criticism by the knowledge that
whatever lie may say or do is closely scanned
by thousands eager to find in it what may be
co interpreted as to annoy or perplex those
who are supporting him as a candidate, and
to whom his shackled condition will not per
mit him to to serviceable. The undersigned,
therefore, withdraws absolutely from the
conduct of the Tribune, and will henceforth,
until further notice, exercise no control or
supervision over its columns.
Mar 15, 1672. Horace Gkbbxjey.
Whitelaw Reid from that day to this
has been in control of the Tribune's
editorial columns. The day after
Horace Greeley Was Nominated
for president by the Liberal Republican
convention at Cincinnati the sturdy old
Journalist wrote in his newspaper this
modest statement:
We do not feel at liberty to print the per
sonal telegrams received last evening from
widely separated points, indicating hearty
acquiescence in and support of the nomina
tions made yesterday at Cincinnati, but the
Benders will accept our thanks.
This was printed on May 4, 1872. Nine
days later the Tribune editorially said:
A single illustration is sometimes more ex
pressive than realms of abstract exposition.
To ppobie who do not seem to understand
the "difference between a newspaper and an
organ we would say that lie Times on Satur
day contained six columns of abuse of Mr.
Greeley and very little news. The Tribune
of that date contained interesting and valua
ble information from every quarter of the
Globe and not one disrespectful or unkind
word of Gun. Grant.
Horace Greeley was still the editor.
Gen. Grant was the Republican presi
dent of the United States and a candi
date for renomination.
The Tribune had said that it was not
an organ. On the day that Horace
Greeley's resignation from the editorial
control was announced the newspaper
reiterated its declaration in .these
words :
"The Tribune is not, and will never
more be, a party organ."
The editorial utterances of the Trib
une from that day on were therefore the
expressions of
TVliitelaW Reid's Convictions.
and ideas. Two weeks after he had been
in the editorial c.liair.Mr.Reid began that
bitter series of invectives against Gen.
Grant, which tne veterans of the war
and the veterans of the Republican
party have never forgotten.
Strangely enough there was before
congress at that time a bill which was

in effect and which in fact bore the
name of the present force bill. It had
for its object, as Whitelaw Reid wrote,
the transfer of election machinery from
local jurisdiction to the hands of United
States marshals. The same force bill
which Whitelaw Reid defends today he
loudly denounced twenty years ago."
The bid vv«\3 though to be in (lie. in
terest of Gen. Grant's fenomination
then. Today it is in the interest of
keeping a Republican administration in
power. And today WbitMaw Reid
hopes to become part and parcel of the
Republican administration. The Trib
une of May 30. 1872. said:
"Till the Cincinnati convention met it
was generally understood that the pres
ident meant to have the advantage in
his canvass for ie-election of the legal
power to suspend the habeas corpus
and muster the bayonets to his sup
port. Even after Cincinnati, the senate
(now by reason of its Pomeroys, its
Caldwells and Conklings the real lower
house) persisted in renewing the Ku-
Klux bill for his benefit: but the house
has clearly shown its willingness to
take another step in that direction.
Cincinnati has prevented presidential
elections under martial law in the hands
of a presidential candidate."
The Force Hill.
And in the second issue of the Trib
une after this Whitelaw Reid called the
force bill by its accepted name and
wrote :
•'.Never weary of well-doing, Gen.
Butler and his band of superservice
ables rallied all their cohorts in the
house yesterday in an attempt to pass
the force bill. It was understood to be
a "party" measure for the renotniiiatiou
ists: it was really a bill to give the
president power to transfer the machin
ery of elections from local jurisdiction
to the hands of United States marshals.
But the plot failed."
There was talk about certain war rec
ords which were missing. Gen. Adam
Badeau, Grant's chief of staff,it wasjsaid,
carried them from the document room
to use in writing his military history.
Whitelaw Reid, when he began his
merciless attack on Gen. Grant's public
and private character, wrote of these
missing records:
"We know finally that a great many,
and probably the most important, of
these documents refer to portions of
Gen. Grant's military caieer, upon
which there is a great difference of
opinion among military critics, and that
the enemies of the president have
drawn the most damaging inferences
from their extraordinary disappear
The Attack on Grant.
The attack on the hero of Appomattox
occupied a column in the Tribune of
May 31. - Whitelaw Reid wrote:
"While we do not expect Gen. Grant
to understand the scandal of many of
the appointments which he has made, it
does seem incredible that he should so
obstinately persist in keeping men in
place who have done nothing so thor
oughly as to demonstrate their own uu
fitness for it. * *:•_, " .."■
"(Jen. Grant seems to have forgotten
that the president is a civil and not a
military officer, and this explains his
undertaking to govern the South as if
it were still a great entrenched camp:
his manipulating our foreign • policy
as if he were treating with an
enemy at his mercy and upon the
point of surrender — until, indeed, the
tables in one or two cases - were turned
and he was ready himself to. surrender;
his issuing his instructions to free citi
zens about to vote as if ' they were " his
old infantry about to engage in battle.
"Gen. Grant is a soldier, and the old
habits of a soldier stick to him. He has
many of the professional faults of Jack
son, and apparently no comprehension
of that strict, law-abiding conscience
which redeemed the soldierly character
of Washington, of Taylor and of Harri
son. They were good soldiers, but bet
ter citizens. They never attempted to
govern th« republic by general orders."
Stunner's Speech.
Then came Charles Sumner's famous
speech in the senate denouncing Gen.
Grant as a Csesar. Reid's pen flowed
smoothly along in Sumner's praise:
"We are not sure that our greatest
senator did not make, yesterday, the
greatest speech of his life. Not a trait
has been spared. He gives the cynical
nepotism, the eager acceptance of pres
ents, the reward of personal service by
public offices, the stolid, contemptuous
disregard of law, the disposition to shut
himself up in a close phalanx of con
genial creatures, which have been so
long recognized by ail intelligent people
and so long passed over in silence by
opponents who cared more for decorum
than for decency. ;:y.-.:;v ■•".;. -..
"But now that the time has come that
all the powers of government are to be
put in operation to compel the re-elec
tion of this conspicuous failure and the
perpetuation of this discreditable ex
ploitation of the executive office, it is
the duty of every man who disapproves
of such a use of the presidency to speak
plainly the truth that most men feel
that Gen. Grant is not a tit man to be
Rewarded by Harrison.
Whitelaw Reid was the most promi
nent of the Republican editors whose
reward for campaign service to Ben
jamin Harrison in 1888 was appointed
to office. Some of the smaller editors
became postmasters; those of large in
fluence and whose newspapers had
greater circulation were given appoint
ments. Editors whose newspapers were
leading party organs were made minis
ters. Whitelaw Reid, of the Tribune,
became minister to France. But on
June 3, 1872, Whitelaw Reid wrote:
"Whoever wants to see the disinter
ested nature of the support given to
Gen. Grant by a considerable portion of
the Now York state press wherefrom
malcontents have lately been taking
some comfort, may find it in the list of
editorial officeholders elsewhere pub
lished. It would be a marvellous thing,
as editorial officeholders go, if these
people did not support their master."
This argument of Whitelaw Reid in
1872 appears to have stood the test of
time in the light of the Tribune's at
tacks on James G. Maine previous to
the nominating convention at Minneap
olis in June, 1802.
Logan Riven a Turn.
With Sumner's speech and the replies
made to it in the senate came Mr. Reid's
opportunity to insult and deride other
prominent Republicans and compan
ions-in-arms of Grant. John A. Logan
became a target for his mud-slinging.
Whitelaw Reid impugned. Gen. Logan's
motives in defending Gen. Grant by
•comparing him to the conspicuous gam-

bier of that time, John Morrissey, He
wrote :
"Unexpected champions have arisen
to defend the president from the terri
ble arraignment of Senator Sumner.
The first was Flanaj?a ft, of .Tejas. " •
* The second, champion whs Gen. John
A. Logan. His speech deserves no
notice in itself. It was one . mass of
rank adjectives. There was nothing
whatever in the speech except the fact
that Logan made it, and this is a matter
not without a certain importance. It
only means that he imagines Gen. Grant
is to be re-elected, and that in that case
he can take the state patronage into his
own lianas. He, like most of Gen.
Grant's partisans, avows his contempt
for reform in the civil service, and
openly regards public office as the proper
reward for partisan activity. His speech
indicates what he thinks of the proba
bilities as to the result of the canvass as
clearly as Mr. Morrlssey's ideas are in
dicated by his bets."
Whitelaw Reid began to pursue Gen.
Loean with the same malignant hatred
that he displayed toward Gen. Grant
and Koscoe Colliding. On June 5. 1872,
the Tribune said:
"Gen. Logan could say nothing this
time but that Mr. Sunnier was a malig
nant slanderer. He said this with some
feeling, because, in common with many
other uneducated men, he deeply re
sents any sign of culture in others. * He
feels it a cruel wrong to himself that

And on the next day Whitelaw Reid
wrote contemptuously about "mounte

like Conkling."
A Large Number of Paintings.
Some by Old Masters, Seized
by Customs Authorities.
They Were Brought Across the
Water by the Divorced Wife
of a Millionaire.
New Yokk, Oct. C— A woman who is
accused of smuggling into this country
paintings valued at $110,000 is said by
the custom house authorities to be the
divorced wife of William .Campbell, the
millionaire wall paper manufacturer.
She is now the wife of an Italian named
Di Cacaci, of Naples, Italy.
Mrs. Campbell called at the custom
house today in a very angry and some
what excited state of mind and said she
had called to prefer charges against In
spector Traitteur. The latter, she said,
had concocted a charge of smuggling
against her in order that he might take
possession of eighty-two paintings, of
the value of $110,000, which belonged to
her. His motive, she charged, was
revenge, because she did not recipro
cate his passion for her. She declared
that he had pursued her to Saratoga and
other places that he might make love to
her. Deputy Collector Phelps took the
papers, but did not give Mrs. Campbell
much satisfaction.
It was nearly three months ago that
the custom house officers began to watch
Mrs. Campbell, as she now calls herself.
About that time she had entered a great
many paintings as household and per
sonal effects at the custom office. She
took the usual oath at the time, that she
had used the goods abroad for a year,
and that they were not intended for
'sale. An affidavit from the consignor
on the other side to the effect that the
goods had been used for a year, the pe
riod required by law, accompanied the
pictures, and so they, with some other
articles of household furniture, were
admitted free of duty.
Collector Traitteur, treasury inspec
tor, suspected that all was not right,
and he reported at the time to Col.
Phelps, deputy collector in charge of
the law division at the custom house,
and to Collector of the Port Hendricks.
They learned that, although the woman
had "said she had used the paintings for
a year on the other side, she had not
been across the ocean for two years, and
had lived , continually here. They
learned that she had stored them away
in storage rooms and auction houses in
this city, and that she had a catalogue
of them printed and sent around, with
the prices attached to them. The
pictures were advertised for sale, and a
number of them were sold.
The treasury inspector finally man
aged, within the past week, to trace the
woman and find out where she had her
pictures stored. Mrs. Campbell was
traced to an apartment house on Broad
way, and the pictures were tound and
sent to storage houses. In all, 82
paintings were seized by the inspect
ors. There were originally 10G paint
ings, but the other 24 have disappeared,
and the inference is that the woman
managed to dispose of them. The in
spectors got all the evidence, and it was
so completely against Mrs. Campbell
that they decided to make the seizure.
There are a number by Leonardo Da
Vinci. One of them is the famous pic
ture "Christ Carrying the Cross," and is
valued at ?25,000."There are two by Ru
bens and a number by the other old
masters. Sixty-nine are by Italian
masters who lived prior to the sixteenth
century. All of these pictures are
valued highly. There are a number
of pictures by modern painters, but
these are not rated very high.
The woman Interested is well-known.
A few years ago she met the man who
had been her husband in Central park,
and in the presence of about a thousand
persons went at him with a horsewhip.
She has used a horsewhip on other occa
sions. It was said at the custom house
this morning that she would not be
prosecuted or arrested. The pictures
will be taken in charge by Uncle Sam
unless she makes good her allegation
that they were used in her house in
Naples a year prior to their transporta
tion to this country.

Two Chicago Board of Trade Men
Have a Little Difficulty.
Chicago, Oct. 6.— Two men widely
known in commercial and political cir
cles," ex-Congressman 11. W. Dunham,
of Chicago, and his former partner,
Alexander Young, of Milwaukee, came
to blows in the -board of trade corridor
today. According to Mr. Dunham's
statement there has been rather hard
feelings between the men for some little
time. This morning just before the
opening of the board the two met on
the second Moor of the board of trade
building, and angry words passed be
tween them. As the discussion grew
more heated.they walked down the stairs
to the grounfl* floor. Young had reached
the foot of the stairs, and Dunham was
standing on the third step from the bot
tom when Young turned and aimed a
blow with his cane at Dunham's head.
Dunham ducked, but his Duulap hat
was sent spinning across the tiled floor.
Before Young had time to strike again,
Dunham was upon him. and the two
men clinched. By this time a police of
ficer, who was standing about thirty
feet from the pugilistic speculators at
the time the assault was made, had
reached them and the fight was brought
to an abrupt close.
Officer Briscoe took Young into cus
tody. He walked him to the Harrison
street police station, followed by Dun
ham and a crowd of board of trade men.
Arrived at the station, however, the ex
congressman refused to prosecute.

A Former Partner of Jay Gould
Must Disgorge.
TBENTOK, N. J., Oct. C— Vice-
Chancellor Pitney rendered a decision
today in the case of A. R. McCanles,
assignee for the creditors of Health &
Quiney, of -New' York, against Henry
M. Smith, Jay Gould's partner when he
was at the head of the firm of Gould,
Smith & Martin. The suit was brought
to recover property to satisfy a judg
ment for nearly 51,000,000. Tne litiga
tion began in 1885, when Smith was one
of thb leading bears of Wall street and
supposed to be making a great deal of
money. In July of that year he
transferred his interest in the Fashion
stock farm to his wife, Mary E.
Smith, deceased. His credit with Health
& Quiney remained good, however, on
his representation that he was solvent
when he made the transfer. He was, in
fact, the bill states, insolvent, and trans
fer, it is now charged, was fraudulent.
The court sets aside the transfer re
verting the property back to Smith.
The stock farm, therefore, now standing
in his name is subject to seizure to sat
isfy the judgment of £955,000 then
issued by complainants.
Clever Trick of an Omaha Letter
Omaha, Oct. o.— Otto G. Middletown,
a carrier at the Omaha postoffice, was
discharged for incompetence. It trans
pires that his handwriting and orthog
raphy are not those attached to exami
nation papers bearing his name upon
his being admitted to the service a year
ago. An investigation by Postmaster
Clarkson and the head of the examining
board revealed this state of affairs, and
Middletou was questioned. -The latter
official says that Middleton was not the
man who passed the examination, and
the inference is that he must have paid
some one to pass for him. The case is
said to be unique.

Wide Fluctuations in Some of
the Specialties on Wall
CmcAGO, Oct. The pork market got 8
great lift today. It was the leading market
on the floor for activity and strength. The
strong feeling was shown by a jump of about
lie at the opening. This was followed by a
further advance of 2)c early, and after some
reaction a later bulge put the January price
up nearly 50c over the close yesterday. At
the same time January ribs were advanced
17V2C over last night and lard 12i&c. Grain
lacked animation, but had a firmer tone, and
closed at nearly the best prices for the day,
the final figures compared with last night
showing a gain of %c for wheat and i,s c for
Wright, who has the short rib deal for Oc
tober, began buying January pork heavily.
It was on his purchases of 10.000 bbis that the
first sharp advance was made. Later there
was buying, probably on stop orders by
Logan, Baldwin. Champliu and others.
There was buying also for the country. Ryan
was buying in what was thought to be short
pork. The packers were sellers of pork at
diffarent times, but the offerings- were not
sufficient to break the market. The October
stuff was largely neglected with the big buy
ing all around for January. The later re
ceipts of hogs, and that January pork was
low relatively, and a big short interest were
talked of as the chief causes of tne unusual
advance. Assertions were not lacking,
however, that the strength of the
latter partook largely of the fictitious nerve
which was being pumped into it by manipu
lators. J. G. Steever was a free seller of
January ribs, which led the brokers to the
conclusion that while Wright was bolstering
up pork and lard he was selling what he
could of January ribs.
Today brought a good many dispatches
from the country confirmatory of reports as
to the damaging effects of the dry weather
the fall sown wheat, and these gave the mar
ket a strong opening/ Several prominent
local operators were good buyers, and as
there was little for sale shorts scon, deemed
it prudent to cover. But easier cables, liberal
receipts in the Northwest and free deliveries
at primary points soon took the edge off the
market, and there was gome decline, but the
market seemed pretty stubborn and did not
yield much.
Clearances, while not heavy, were consid
erably larger than yesterday. Early there
were good buying orders from New York, but
later the same interest sold freely. Elevator
men gave it out that Kansas city shippers
were sending much loss wheat. There was
less showy individual trading than for some
days past, and altogeiner it . was a dull mar
ket after the early advance. The opening
was about the same as the closing figures of
yesterday, and prices were advanced %@V2C,
ruled steady, and the closing was about 14©
%c higher than yesterday.: .'
; The corn trade appears 10 be pretty well
evened up and waiting for fresh Influences.
The- movement to market continues very
heavy, but is partly offset by the liberal with
drawals. Dispatches were at hand saying
farmers will hold their crop of corn at pres
ent figures, and other dispatches say that re
ceipts will be larger when the railroads can
'furnish the cars. Some authorities call the
cropjsafe, while others say that many sections
have soft corn, needing another week or two
of fine weather. These conflicting claims
keep the trade in doubt. ■ Price
changes were limited to Vac range.
Opening trades were about the . clos
ing prices of yesterday, and were firm for
the time, but . offerings' became larger, the
liberal receipts and talk of a light cash de
mand creating a '-bearish" sentiment, under
which the market sold off Vac. : At the de-
Cline the- demand improved, and-qu the buy
ing of a good-sized line of May by a provision
broker tbc market reacted, recovering the
break,'- eased off slightly, ruled firm, and
closed with October tec easier, and May
shade better. :
Oats were almost stationary Hud feature

moderate, and rates easy at 2iic for wheat,
and 2c for corn to Buffalo. Estimated re

New York.
New York. Oct. 6.— The stock market was
less active today, but the temper of specula
tion was strons during the greater part of
the day, with the trend of prices upward.
After a decline of Vt@V2 per cent at the
opening. General Electric rose rose rapidly
from 117V2 to 11'JiA, Chicago Gas from 83V* to
85, and New England from 43V? to 45%. The
. confident buying of these stocks imported
strength to the remainder of the list, and an
advance of UQ^s was recorded, with Union
Pacific and (.irHUtrers and Reading in the
lead. The last named was in brisk borrow
ing demand, and commanded 1-04 for use.
During the afternoon the market felt the
effect of realizing sales and reacted 14 to 1
per cent, but the decline brought in a fresh
batch of buying orders shortly before the
close, and a partial recovery ensued. Chi
cago Gas and General Electric were notice
ably strong, leaving off within i&@.ia of the
highest. Various reports were circulated in
regard to the alleged New England deal, but
nothing of an official nature developed,
Reading was advanced on rumors that fav
orable news in regard to the property would
be forthcoming in a day or two. They could
be traced to no authentic source, and the
stock receded to 58%, There were some wide
fluctuations in the specialties. Colorado
Coal rose 9, Plttsburg, Cincinnati, Chicago
and St. Louis preferred, 41,2; National
Starch, 31*! ; American Tobacco, common, 2;
Edison Illuminating, 2, and St. Paul &
Duluth, 3 ocr cent. The market closed firm.
The Post says: Reference has already
been made to the strengthening of the United
States treasury's gold reserve. Today's
treasury statement reflected the outgo for
the October interest payments, from which a
considerable decrease in specie had been
looked for. The resuit is encouraging, as it
shows that in this direction, too, the reserve
against the United States notes is amply pro
tected. Practically, the payment of interest
was wholly made in United States notes, a
task doubtless rendered easier by the bank
demand for currency at New York. The
gold reserve, on the other baud, is l.irger
than it was before the arrival of the October |
quarter day, and has increased in all |
' since its minimum figure at August by
$10,557,515. Meantime it should be observed
again that the Austrian buyers of gold, now
that our market is shut to them, clearly have
been drawing for heavy amounts on Berlin,
the total loss of specie last week by the Ger
man bank being no less than 514,000.000. the
other European banks losing gold along
with it.

The market opened stronger on a better
tone in Europe, with a fair demand on the
part of short sellers in the several markets, as
reported from them. The feeling was quite
general that as the maximum of the farm
movement would soon be over.in both spring
and winter, there will soon be a nardeniiiß of
values iv expectation of it. Paris cables were
particularly firm, as were also reports from
the United Kingdom.
The cash market was slow. Millers were
moderate buyers, and in some cases paid 0
small premium for wheat that was 111 cars
that could be. used for Hour shipments.

The Old Man Did Not Believe
That Anybody Would Abuse Old '
Air old man was loading a thin old
horse across the commons in the north
ern part of the city when a passer-by
asked him where ho was going.
"I'm searching for a bit or green for
the poor beaat," he answered.
"I'd send him to the boneyard or the "
glue factory," said the other contemptu
"Would yon?" asked the old man In
a trembling voice; "if ho had been the
best friend you had In the world, and
helped you to earn food for your family
for nearly twenty-live years. if
the child thn&j tone and the
children that's livin' had played
with their arms around his neck and
their heads on him for a pillo. when
they had no other? Sir, he's carried us
to mill and to meetin', an', please God, "
he shall die like a Christian, an' I'll bury
him with these old hands. Nobody'll
ever abuse old Bill, for, If ha goes afore
me, there are those as aro paid to look
after him."
"I beg your pardon," said She man
who had accosted him; "there's a dif
ference i:i people."
"Aye, and in horses, too," said the old
man as lie passed on with hi four-footod
friend. ■
