Tato of the Procidentia two Remark
able Case*.
Washington, Feb. 19—The president
sent two messages to the senate to-day
vetoing an act granting a pension to
Charlotte O'Neal and an aot granting -a
pension to John Reed, sr. The first
named bill proposed to grant a pension
to the widow of Riohard O'Neal, late
colonel of the twenty-sixth regiihent
Indiana volunteers. In his message in
this oase the president says: "The
reoords of the war department fail to
show that there was a colonel of tbe
twenty-sixth Indiana regiment named
Richard O'Neal, but it does appear that
Richard Neal was a lieutenant oolonel
of said regiment that he was
mustered in August 31, 1861, and
resigned June 80, 1862. If this is
the offioar whose widow is nbmed in the
bill the proposition is to pension the
widow of a soldier who,after ten months'
servioe, resigned, and who, Beven months
after his resignation, died of a disease
whioh was in no manner related to his
military service, there is besides euch
a discrepancy between the name given
in the bill and the name of the offloer
who served lieatenant-ooloneL of.the
regiment mentioned that if the merits
were with the widow the bill would
need further congressional legislation.
In his message returning the aot
granting a pension to John Read, sr.,
the president says: "The reoords show
that the benefloiary named in this bill
filed an application for a pension in 1877,
alleging that he was the father Of John
Reed, who died in the servioe, and that
his wife, the mother of the deoeased
soldier, died May 10, £a!2, and that he
(the father) was mainly dependent upon
his son for support. He filed evidence
of the mother's death and one witness
alleged that he was present at her death
and attended her funeral. In 1864
Martha Reed, motherofthe soldier, filed
her application for a pension in which
she at first claimed to be the widow of
John Beed. She afterward, however,
alleged that her husband, John Beed,
abandoned his family in 1859 and had
not thereafter contributed to their sup
port, and that tbe soldier was her main
support after such abandonment. She
was allowed a pension BS a dependent
mother, which commenced in 1862, the
date of her son's death, and seems to
have terminated July 22,1834, when she
died. The olaim of the father was
rejected in 1883 for the reason that the
mother, who had a prior right was
still living, and when his olaim
was again presented in 1886 he was
informed that his abandonment of his
•family in 1859 preoluded the idea that
he was entitled to a pension as being
dependent upon the soldier for (support.
Of course these deoisions were correct
in law, in equity and in morals. This
demonstrates the means employed in
the attempt to oheat the government in
applications for pensions—too often
successful. The deposition of 1887 of
the man who how poses as the aged' and
dependent father of the dead soldier
that tbe mother died in 1872, when at
that time her olaim was pending for a
pension largely based upon
his abandonment, the •affidavit
of the man who testified
that he saw her die in 1872, the effrontry
of this unworthy father renewing his
olaim after the detection of his fraud
and aotual death of his mother, and the
allegation of the mother.that she was
a.widow, when, in fact, she was an
abondoned wife, show the processes
whioh enter into these claims for pen
sions, and the boldness with whioh plan*
are sometimes oonoerted to rob the
government by actually trafficking in
death and imposing upon the saored
sentiments of patriotism and national

Washington, Feb. 17—Expert jugglers
at the white house and in New York

of the treasury. It is stated on good
authority to-day that Bayard would go
into the treasury and United States
Minister George H. Pendleton,
of Obio, would be made secre
tary of state. To-night it is an
nounced that snoh pressure is being
brought from New York for a oounty

concluded to select a suooessor to Man

Ex-Mayor Graoe was at the white house
this morning and*
it is Understood that
the burden of his business was npon
this matter, particularly with reference
to its possible influenoe npon the tem

It is wnderstood that the
oounty democracy have a man whom
they would like to be secretary of the
treasury, and that Graoe presented his
name. The president may deem it ad
visable for political reasocB to appoint
an aotivepolitioian, or he may dacide
that £o aooept thra oboioo of one faotion

A Former Yankton Lady Suffer* at
tlie Hand* of Joe Smith's Followers
—Driven from her Home.
The following is from Saturday's
Omaha Bee. The Mrs. Adah Stone who
writes the letter was formerly a resident
of Yankton and was known here as
Miss Adah Farnsworth, a trimmer in
Mrs. Coggins' millinery establishment.
After leaving here she married a man
named Ed Stone and they took np their
residenoe in Arizona:
Mr. Grant Williams, a gentleman em
ployed in the office of the oar-service de
partment of the Union Paoifio yesterday
reoeived a letter from his aunt, Mrs.
Ada Stone, who lives at Tuba Oity Ari
zona, a few miles from the Utah frontier.
The missive is a particularly interesting
one, for it tells of the outrageous treat
ment she, with all her friends, has re
oeived at the hands of the Mormons.
The letter is dated at Hubbel's rauoh, a
few miles from Tuba Oity, near the
Navajo's reservation. In it the writer
says: "We are all here at Hubbel's
plaoe. Have been driven out of house
and home by tbe Mormons. Old Lot
Smith is at the head of the gang. He
is one of the heroes of the Mountain
Meadow massacre and one of the offioers
of the ohuroh. On the 30*h four of
them came up to the store while
Ed and Barney were after
the mail. They told Sam the plaoe was
theirs, and they wanted it and would
give UB ten days to get out. They went
home, and that night Sam took the team
and went to Hubbel's to get all the men
from there. The next morning the Mor
mons oame down and told us they had
changed their mind and had oome to
take it then. Ed. told them Sam had
gone after a load of wood, and when he
oame baok they wouM talk it over. The
Mormons said Sam had gone to Hubbel's
and they sent a man out on horsebaok to
see. They had three men on tbe "mesa"
(plateau) opposite the houde and three or
four west, and more north about half a
mile and five at the house, all well
armed. All the gunB we had were Sam's
old Winobester rifle, an old shotgun and
Barney's revolver. Ed. stood them
off with small talk till the
scout came baok and told them
that Sam was coming with
tea men to proteot us. Then Lot Smith
(the Mormon leader) jumped up and de
manded that Barney oome out of the
house. Ed was outside with the Mor
mons. I stood in the door and Barney
Was in tbe kitchen. When Barney oame
to the door Smith grabbed him and
took his revolver. It was no use for to
Bhoot at them for they were eighteen to
our three, and we only had seven car
tridges in the Winohester. The bishop
took Ed and held him, while two other
men pointed guns at us, so that if we
moved they had the drop ou us. Of
course we oould do nothing. Then they
let go of the boys. When tbe bishop
took hold of Ed 1 aimed the rifle at his
head, but Ed kept moving, and I knew
if I shot they would kill Ed and Barney,
So I dropped the gun. I had looked the
store and had the key in my pocket
They demanded it of Ed, He said
they oould't have it. Then -they asked
Barney and he said "Mrs. Stone has the
key." They asked me and I said "Ton
can't have it sir." Then they broke open
the store and began looking for guns
finding none there. They asked me to
open the house. I bad looked it and
had the key. They then had Ed and
Barney in the store under guards Iran
to. the kitohen door and took hold of the
knob. One of the Mormons told me to
stand aside. I said: "I will never let
go this door till you take hie away.
Then he yanked me away and broke the
door down. I went in affer him and he
searched the house, bed and all. I was
right behind him all the time. Then he
took tbe guna and gave them to the par
ties outside and I went into t|be store
after him. Then I started out again to
go and tell Sam how things were going.
I started down the hill. Smith, the
Mormon leader, told me to stop. I
replied: 'This is a free oountry and I
will go where-1 please.'
I was bareheaded and stopped to put
apron about my neok. He said
"Don't dare to make that sign." I kept
on and he ran to oatoh up and held his
gun to my head, saving, "Stop or you'll
get hart." thought it better to Btop.
The hole in that gun looked bigger than
a oannon. I went baok to the shore and
they tried to have Ed and I go up to
Tuba under guard. We said 'No.' Just
then the boys oame UD, They were sur
prised to see all the Mormons there with
guns. Smith ordered them to halt.
They did, of course..
The writer then goes on to tell how,
after a Bhort parley, she aud her husband,
with the other men, were oompelled to
leave the ranob, overpowered by the
superior number of tbe Mormons. They
went to Hubbel's ranohe, several, miles
from Tuba Oitv. The writer concludes:
"Twenty-five Navajo Indians oame to
the oamp and they went to get more and
fight tbe Mormons, but we are going to
take the law. Sam starts for Flagstaff
in the morning to get a sheriff. We
shall appeal to the governor. But, so
far, the. Mormons still hold the fort.

Outoheon presented a substitute for the
bill before the oommittee. It provides
for tbe erection of a gun faotory, and for
firat-olass modern guns for army, sea

with a view to allowing a comparison of

Death Bines the Bell.
Wsabington special A remarkable
ooinoidenoe happened yesterday morning
at tbe deatb of Miss A. W. Duffy, a
daughter of Captain O. D. Duffy, the
patent attorney. Miss Duffy had laid in
a dying condition for several days, being
surrounded by the members of her
immediate family. She was conscious
to the last and talked oalmly with those
about her until a moment or two before
the end. The watcher had Boaroely
made the announcement that she was
dead when a servant from below entered
the room in answer to the Summons of
the oall belt. No one had rung and the
peonliarity of the circumstances was in
the faot that all of the six bells placed in
the dining-room and oommunioating
with the different rooms of the house had
rung violently at the instant when tbe
death took plaoe, and the bells, with one
exception, bad not rung since Mr. Duffy
movei to his present home, wires oon
neoting them being broken.' The affair
oeated a feeling of awe over the house
hold as no explanation of the mystery
has been made.
Delayed Court Information.
Bismarok speoial, 16th: The bill to
remove the supreme oonrt from Dead
wood toRedfield, which is part of what
is known as the Mitohell combination
deal, was on general orders for to day,
but failing to receive consideration for
want o! time and laoking two votes of
the neoeBsary two-thirds to make it a
speoial order, goes over as unfinished
business and IB in a bad position. It is
said that Weiser and Allen, who desert
ed the Mitchell combination in the
oounoil are so disgusted at the inability
of tbe Yan]kton crowd to keep their
pledges that they are ready to oome
baok, and that Foster has promised to
give Mitohell its thirteenth vote in the
oounoil if the Redfield bill passed the
bouBe. The Mitohell men are therefore
def vmined to reach unfinished business
if they have to hold all-day sessions to
do it.

Molntyre, of the twenty-third district
oame to the station house this afternoon
mad with drink. On entering the roll
room he made a dash for the pistol rack
and, before any one could get near him
seized a pistol and began firing Bt the
oooopants. There WBB a general scurry
for the door, and in a few seconds he was
left in full possession. Lieut. Lyons
who was in his private office, attempted
to enter the room, and oapture Molntyre,
when Molntyre oommenoed firing and
the lieutenant was forced to retire. He
opened the door wide enough to admit
of his getting good aim, and brought the
madman down with a shot. Molntyre

The Canadian Pacific Burled.
New. fork, Feb. 18—The Tribune's
Montreal Bpeoial Bays: The Canadian
Paoifio railway has been completely
blockaded with snow for the' past thiee
wests. It has been impossible to obtain
exact information in regard to tbe Ex
tent, for every one oonnecred with tbe
management preserves tba olosest
retioenoe, but BO far as oan be learned
from careful 'inquiry the blockade is
praotiiially oomplete. The road west of
Winnipeg has bejn blockaded for
twenty-three days and especially in
Selkirk and west of Oolgarry. The
snow shads there have failed
to 'afford protection in oonsequeno9
of heavy land slides whioh
have demolished them in several plaoes.
The portion of the land running through
Frazer river valley is blocked by snow
and rooky land slides. For some time
Frazer river has been frozen up at the
mdnth so that vessels oould not reaob
Vancouver Island. To add to the diffi
culties the oompany's supply of ooal at
many points baa been exhausted and
the blockade preventB the stock being
replenished, and it is reported that a
large number of dead" engines have
been abandoned in Selkirk range and on
b0h Bides of it. It is believe*) to be
doubtful if thn road will bft able to run
trains regularly muoh befolie ths first of
May. It appears that th« whole line
west of Winnipeg, and perhaps'from
that plaoe east to Port Arthur, on Laks
Superior, is blocked with eaotr..,
