President Cleveland, iu deference to
general public opinion, declined to at

dent said to an associated preBB report
1 am now reminded by some of the
best and most patriotic aud thoughtful
of our citizens that the re».l and solemn
duties of my office are at the national
capital, and thut in the present peculiar
and delicate situation I ought not to
take even a remote chance of accident
incident to travel to gratity a sentiment
so general and so characteristic as that
involved iu this subject. I have been
profoundly impressed by these consid
erations, but most of all intiuenced by
their strong and unanimous presenta
tion by devoted friends of the late vice
president living iu his state and city,
and their indorsement by the no
ble and patriotic womau who in
the infinite sorrow of her widow
hood reflects the spirit and character of
her honored hubsaud in her solicitude
for public good. I am now certain that
desire, nor the sentiment refer
red to, nor tho difficulty
thut attends in this case a change
of design, nor any stubborn
born idea of heroism will justify me in
subjecting the country to any greater
chance of disaster than attondB my per
formance of strict duty here, and that I
ought not to inflict on my countrymou
even unrest and anxiety attending my
departure, abnenoe and return in attend
ance upon the funeral ceremonies."
A practical illustration of the work
ings of Commissioner Sparks' methods
against the settlers upon public lands is
quoted in tbc case of a Dakota home
In 1881 Solon Brnner, a soldier of the
late war, a pensioner, discharged for
disabilities, obtained in actual service,
located a pre-emption in 104-59, Hanson
county, and in 1882 filed his homestead
over th9 pre-emption, built a house and
broke five acres. He was a poor man,
and compelled to work at whatever he
could get to do iu order to support the
family. His family lived on the claim
and improvements were made as rapidly
as his cirourastances would allow. In
the fall of 1884, after a
two yearB* continuous residence,
and with thirty-five acres
which had been cropped two seasons,
with a good house, stable and granary,
a fine grove and thrifty young orchard,
well, and other improvements, he made
final proof, deducting from the five
yearB the time spent in the army. He
has since continued to reside there, put
ting forty acres more into crops. He
placed a loan of $350 on the farm, which
has Bince passed into the hands of au
eastern lady. His royal highness, Com
missioner Sparks, has recently reached
the case, aud has rendered what ha
terms one of his final decisions, rejecting
the proofs on the ground, as he claims,
that tbe improvements were too meagre
to show actual intended settlement.
Mr. Sparks, of course, well knows that
according to the proofs made Mr.
Brnner was entitled to his patent
ani that if the oase was taken
to the supreme court be
would be compelled to issue the same.
But be can make considerable trouble to
innocent parties, and add expense to
those who are unable to bear such bur
dens. Again, the parties who have
loaned money on the laDd are left witb
ont any seourity. This cannot only
injure the two parties mentioned, but
it tends to make parties who are inclined
to make loans on realty in Dakota sus
picions of the seourity. This is only
one of tbe hundreds of oaBes in whioh
the cloven foot of a demagogue i» plainly
visible. Dakota is oertainly entitled to
have Mr. Sparks removed.and tbe sooner
the president makes the removal the
better it will be for the people of Da
kota and tbe administration.
A Oakota Fiend.
Mitchell, Nov. 30. An Enfield deputy
sheriff passed through here this evening
with a young man by tbe name of John
Bloomfield, captured at White Lake,
daughter of his employer, a butcher at
Enfield, whom he subsequently foroed
to occupy the same bed with him for
months, threatening her with death if
she should inform her parents. Bloom
flelil left his place about three week's
ago, and the illness of the child, who
was discovered to be eucisnte, WBB the
lirat warning tho parents had of the
IMeil lrom Hydrophobia.
Milwaukee, Nov, 28—A frightlul case
of hydrophobia was developed yester
day morning, the victim being George
Nagelschmidt, a four year old son of
Mr. and Mrs. Nagelschmidt. The ohild
was attaoked by a largo Newfoundland
dog while playing near his home two
weeks ago, He complained of violent
pains in the Lead and throat, and ap
peared to breathe with extreme diffi
culty, and at 8 o'clook in tho morning
the child had a convulsion. Threo doc
tors were oalled. They unhesitatingly
pronounced the malady hydrophobia,
aud expressed grave doubts of the child's
reoovery. The little fellow grew rap
idly worse, and one oonvulsion followed
another iu rapid sucoesBion. When free
from a oonvulsion the boy was perfectly
conscious, aud recognized the membera
of tho family. The Bufferer plead con
tinually tor water, and when it was offer
ed to him he either went into another
spasm or wildly screamed and tuinod
from it with loathing. Two physicians
having firm faith in the effioaoy of Turk
ish baths in oases of this kind propose,
to take the ohild to Dr. IlauBon's estab
lishment. The little sufferer was taken
there at tho noon hour, but died in con
vnlsious an hour later.
A DESPERATE FIGHT.
Killing: uf a .Pcrault' County .11
Aftoi- a Itloixly htrnsele.
Glenwood, Ia.J correspondence, 27:
Word comes from Dakota that Logan
Solomon, son of Hon. D. li. Solomon, of
this city, had shot and killed a man in
self defense iu Jernnld county, in that
territory, on tho morning of tho 18th
inst. The only details the fumily have
yet heard come3 from one of the neigh
bors, and are as follows:
Logan and one Combs, bonrde.d with
a mau named Harris, who had in his cm
ploy a Norwegian named iiohber. Lo
gan and Combs had a claim adjoining
Harris,' but had no house on it, so they
lived with Harris.
The Norwogiun was spiteful and vic
ious and was beating a dog belonging to
Comb?. Logan finally told him that
Combs would not like thar, and would
make trouble if ho kept on. The Nor
wegian retorted with au oatb, "I don't
tare for Combs or yuil either!" and kept
on beating the dog unmercifully. Then
Logan said, "atop, or you'll kill the
dog." The Norwegion then, in a trenzy
of rage, picked up a club, or heavy piece
of board, declaring, "1 will kill the dog
and you, too," and started for Logan in
a violent manner—like au lUHane person.
Logan caught up a rille as he tried to
escape, but seeing he could not gei.
away, fired at Koliber, missing him en
tirely. By this time the Norwegian got
hold of a large butcher knife aud was
coming on to Logan UB fast as he could.
Logan then started tor Hums' revolver,
which was lying or haugiug somewhere
near, but before be could get the revol
ver iu position to lire tho Norwegian at
tacked him with a knife, cutting up his
face badly and cutting off part of one
of his ears. During this struggle, in
which tbe knife played tbe most
important part, young Solomon manag
ed to get the revlover in position and
fired, and finally, after a desperate band
to hand conflict, succeeding in killing
We are informed that tho attaok
made by the Nerwegian was so fierce
and so lerocioua that many believes be
was for a moment insane, he having at
times manifested such a state, and hav
ing an insane brother.
These arc all the details that have
reaohed any one here, exoept thut young
Solomon immediately went to an officer
and gave himself up.
FILLING A VACANCY.
The .Relative l.« a Special I'.lee
tlon to ChoMe li l'reHident of tho
Chicago Inter Occan.
The Herald of this city, the espccial
organ ot the demooraoy iu Chicago, en
courages the eleotion of Uenerul Logan
to the presidency ef the senate, and
speaks of it as giving him tbe position
for which he was candidato last year.
If General Logan desires the position of
president of the senate it would gratify
western republicans for him to have it,
but its acceptance by him would be of
doubtful wisdom. Thero is as tbe
Inter Ocean pointed out yesterday a dis
tinction with a broad difierence between
vice president and president pro tem.
of the Benate, In the event of
the death of the president the vice pres
ident becomes president, with all which
the term implies, for the entire unexpir
ed term of his immediate predecessor,
but not so with the president pro tem.
or speaker of the hoaso, aB the case
might be. No Boouer would he enter
upon the discharge of tbe duties of pres
ident of the United States than tbe ma
ohineiy of a special election wonld bo
set in motion by the secretary of state.
That officer is required to proceed with
out delay. The word used is "forth
with." In other words, the acting pres
ident would simply hold the office dur
ing the campaign, and until bis succes
sor could qualify in the usual way,
The first step to be taken in holding
a special election for president is to
notiiy the governor of each state of the
vacancy, and to causo the notification
to be published in at least one news
paper in each state. This notification
by the secretary of state shall specify
that presidental electors shall bo select
ed iu tbe Beveral states as follows:
1. If there shall be the spaoe of two
months yet to ensue between the date
of suoh notification and the first Wed
nesday in December, then next ensuing,
such notification shall specify that the
eleotors shall be appointed or chosen
withiu thirty four days preceding such
first Wednesday in December.
2. If there shall not be the spaoe of
two months between the date of such
notification and tbe first Wednesday in
December, and if the term for which the
president and vice president was elected
two stations west of here, to day, and next ensuing, the notification shall
wanted at Enfield for alleged rape and specify that the eleotors shall be ap
Redaction. Bloomfield is charged with pointed or chosen within thirty-four
outrage upon the little thirteen year old! days preoeding the first Wednesday in
not expire on the 3d day ot March
December in the year next ensuing. Bat
if there shall not be the space of two
months between the date of suoh notifi
cation and the first Wednesday in De
cember then next ensuing, and if the
term for which the president and vioe
president were elected will expire on the
3d day of March next ensuing, the noti
fication shall not specify that electi rs
aru to be appointed or ohosen.
The method of choosing electors will
be the same for special aB for regular
elections, and the foregoing involves all
the points peouliar to the situation.
Four presidents and five vice presi
dents have now died in ofBoe. That
both positions should be vaoated by
death within the space of one presi
dential term is not to be anticipated,
exoept BB a remote contingency, but
certainly it was timely to make provision
for such a contingency by both filling
tho vaoancy ad interim and by providing
for a special eleotion.
Dir. Hendricks' Coaclunau.
Indianapolis News: Tom Branford,
tho oolorod coaohman who has been with
Mr. Hendricks for nine years, is greatly
distressed at his death.
"There never was a Bervant about the
house," said Tom, "that didn't like him,
or would say a word against him. When
I handed him a glass of water, or blaoked
his boots, or did any other little thing,
he would always thank me for it. The
newspapers said last fall, I thick it
was Jap Turpy who wrote it, that I
made more fuss than anybody
else when Mr. Hendricks was
elected. That ain't so. I al
ways voted tho republican ticket,
and never voted for Mr. Hendricks. He
never said a word to me about who I
Bhould vote for. At the eleotion last
year he told me to bitoh up and drive
him down to tho poll*, and then said
afterwards, "No, we won't go down to
gether or they'll think I'm leading you
to the polls. You are a free man. Go
down and vote, and then I will go down
myself.' In Washington, at Willard's
hotel, the 4th of last March, be said to
me: 'Tom, you said we would come to
Washington, and we have, haven't we?"
