Kidnapping1 Characteristic of Grant'
Administration.
The New York Sun Bays that the publi
cation by the Washington correspondent
of the Cincinnati Gazette of the facts eon
nected with the conspiracy to kidnap Ray
mond II. Perry of Rhode Island, revives
the memory of the darkest page in the
history of Grant's administration.
Mr. Perry had revealed certain transac
tions relating to the San Domingo enter
prise which were regarded by those con
cerned in that undertaking as exceedingly
damaging; and they determined to put
him out of the way; For this purpose, as
appears by the evidence given to the world
lone since by tho A'un and now renewed
and extended by the Gazette, Gen. Bab
cock, Grant's most confidential secretary
and his special agent in San Domingo,
conspired with various persons in the de
tective servico of the treasury department
to have a bogus charge of murder raised
against Perry in an obscure part of Texas,
and then to kidnap him in Rhode Island
and carry him oil to Texas, either to kill
him there or to incarcerate him in some
prison from which he could not possibly
be released for an indefinite period ot time,
These aro the isimple facts as established
by the testimony; and while it is possible
that such a conspiracy could have been
gotten up by men so near to Grant, and in
the interest of a project out of which he
and his friends expected to make a great
deal of money, without his knowing and
assenting to it, yet who can believe that
such was the case? Besides, if he did
not know it and agree in it, would he not
have resented it and punished it when the
truth of the matter was brought tu his
knowledge by its publication in tho Sun
some years ago?
After an attempt to kidnap, which cer
tainly was devised and carried on with the
full knowledge of President Grant, was
that made by Henry D. Gooke and Alex
ander R. Shepherd, when they under
took to carry off Mr, Dana from this city
to Washington that Judge Blatchford
turned it out of court as soon as the case
was heard by him. On that occasion, too.
there is little reason to doubt that behind
the kidnapping scheme there was a deadly,
murderous intent.
Akin to both these operations was the
sate-burglary conspiracy, in which Babcock
was likewise a conspicuous actor, all his
confederates beine in the same manner
intimate friends of President Grant. A
more wicked crime was never undertaken
than that which failed with the failure of
this conspiracy; but the guilt of the vil
lains who concocted it, and the deep suspi
cion which his close connection with them
caffs upon the name of Grant, cannot be
eradicated from the memory of men.
Similar to these was the conspiracy of
Grant's Scretary of the Navy to entice
Mr. Whitthorne of the House of Repre
sentatives, Chairman of an investigating
committee into a house of ill fame in
Washington in order that he might there
have him arrested, and thus gain over him
a power to control the investigation and
hinder the presentation in the House or
the publication of any damaging report.
Conspiracies to kidoap, conspiracies to
blacken innocent persons with unfounded
accusations of crime, form one of the most
remarkable characteristics of Grant s Ad
iniuistratioo. They seem almost incredible,
eveu at this brief distance, and yet they
actually occurred as we have stated. And
yet Gen. Grant and some of his friends
still think he may be nominated for a third
term lor President of the United states!
CIVII. SERVICE RErORK.
How Stanley Matthews Traded the
Toledo Post Office for Votes
From Itio Toledo Journal.
A fw days since a very prominent citi
Ben of Cincinnati visited Toledo, who was
en route to Put in-Bay. This gentleman
said that ho supposed he was one of the
parties who was instrumental in bringing
llecd and Matthews together. He was at
Columbus during the senatorial contest, in
the interest of Matthews. He talked ith
Heed, and ascertained that he was for
Tuft, and that he had, or claimed to con
trol. from three to live votes of the north
western Ohio delegation. He saw that
Reed was anxious for something, and he
inferred from certain words and hints that
he dropped, that he could be "fixed" for
Matthews. "I then saw Matthews," ho
said, "and advised him to secure Heed, as
the contest was likely to be close. An in
tervinw was arranged and Reed was fixed."
v hat transpired between need and
Matthews no one knows but tho two parties
present. Perhaps it was another party, a
confidential friend of Matthews, who fixed
Heed and his three or lour votes, It is
certain that Reed went to Columbus in the
interest ot latt ; that certain representa
tives from northwestern Ohio, who were
in Reed's interest, were also for Taft; that
Reed was in the Taft caucus, preceding
the legislative caucus. It is also certain
that he changed; and that he changed
very suddenly to Matthews alter a certain
interview, either with Matthews or a friend
of Matthews, upon the promise of afedera!
office. It is also true, and we stand ready
to prove it, that after said senatorial elec
tion, in winch ueed s strength was voted
for Matthews, an arrangement was made
by Matthews with President Hayes, to
have fowling removed and Alexander
Reed appointed postmaster, and that at
the tame time Matthews wrote to Gov.
Cox, informing him of the contemplated
change. It has been a mystery to many
citizens of Toledo why President Hayes
was induced to make the change, in direct
and flagrant violation of his civil service
rules. There is but one explanation tor
this, and that is, Stanley Matthews de
manded the change. It is a well-known
tact that no charges whatever have been
preferred against Capt. Howling; it is also
an undisputed fact that the president said
to Capt Howling after his inauguration,
that he would not be removed while his
record was so correct. He said the same
thing, substantially, to William Baker, of
loledo, and to another very distinguished
public official in Washinaton.
Now, with all these facts well established
and uncontroverted. are we not iustified in
the assertion that thtf whole transaction is
tainted with fraud and corruption of the
most degrading kind r
An English Substitute for Spelling
Bees.
Londou Examiner.
One of our most respectable suburbs has
the credit of having invented an amusement
wnicn ohouia make the busy "spelling-bee"
and the homely "at home" hide their
aiminuned beads. A number of worthy
citizens in Lower Holloway. alarmed at the
progress of democratic and atheistical
opinions, have formed themselves into a
society tor giving (and receiving) political
and theological readings. The members
meet every Wednesday and Saturday
evening, and read Butler's "Analogy" and
llobbd' "De Cive," "without note or com
ment. Their wives knit and listen, and
hand sandwiches and a "modest Quencher."

. Good Crops.
Tile Chicago 2ime$ says that tho evi
dence that the large American crop will be
in active demand over the water, and that,
consequently, prices must be good, accu
mulates as rapidly as the greatest bull in
the grain market could desire. All the
English journals point out that the crop in
England is bad, that it is worse on the
continent, and that Russia is not sending
near as much grain to the English market
as was her wont America will have sub
stantially a clcarfield. Mr. Jennings, the
London correspondent of 27te New York
World, writes:
"We now know auite enoueh to be sure
that the English harvest will be far below
the average, and the ordinary supplies
from Russia will be much interfered with,
it not wholly diverted from these shores.
It is to America that England must look
for the supplies requisite to make up her
own deficiency in food. It is evident, too,
mac tne war will not be over so soon as
some people supposed. Russia is at the
time 1 write in a position of great peril, and
I have heard some military men express
an opinion that another defeat such las
that at Plevna would cause the whole cam
paign to collapse, and compel the Czar to
make peace on any terms. Nothing short
ot such a contingency as that actually h ap
pending would induce me to believe in its
possibility. It is far more probable that
Russia will go on 'pegging away,' no mat
ter at what cost or sacrifice. The longer
the war lasts the more certainly must the
United States become the greatemporium
of the world, Of course such an advan
tage is merely temporary, and it would not
do to depend too much upon it. Still a
temporary advantage is not to be despised
in hard times."
Good crops, good prices, good times.
This has been the invariable rule. The
effect for this crop year may not be felt
until next sprint-, but it is coming,
Deadwood In Brief.
Correspondence New York Times.
There is no such place anywhere. It
shows up in its worst forms the "fast and
flash" American trait. A little over a year
ago the site of this swarming camp was a
part of the howling wilderness. To-day
there are along the streets, and up and
down the gulches, within a mile, over 10,000
people. Here is a city of 4,000 inhabi
tants, with a floating population ot 2,000
more. About 1,500 houses and huts, and
hundreds of tents up the hillsides, an
academy, church, two daily newspapers,
four banks, twenty lawyers, physicians,
dentists, artists, club-houses, theatres in
full blast every night, the streets thronged
with speculators, tramps, and bummers;
gambling hells open l11 day long, and
cappers on every corner watching for
the next "victim" such is a hasty glance
at Deadwood. It is a place in which the
few pray upon the many. You cannot buy
anything tor less than a quarter; your
living costs you double what it would at
Denver or bait Lake City. lou can t
step iu any direction without facing some
device for, getting rid ot your money.
They have even got a "corner" ou postage
stamps, and you must pay from a dime to
a quarter for a three-cent stamp.
Senator Biainc is responsible for the fol
lowing good story; The mortality during
the last session of the Forty third congress
was unusually great. Messrs. Hooper and
Crocker of Massachusetts, Hersey of
Maine, Rice of Chicago, and several other
members died during the session, and a
Saturday afternoon was set apart for the
customary eulogies. On the day before,
General Butler went up to the speakers
to inquire what the order of exercises was
to be. Mr. Blaine replied that the ar
rangements on such occasions were gener
ally made by tho colleagues of the member
whose elogies were to be pronounced, and
that General Butler could probably learn
what the ordor of exercises would be by
asking almost any one of his fellow mem
bers from Massohusets. "Well," said
General Butler, "I'm not in the eulogistic
ring, but I'll be d d if 1 don't make a
speech on old Hooper if they don't shut
me off with the previous question." New

1 he country is crowded with statesmen
whose eyes are so fixed upon 1880 that they
are unable to perceive what is going on un
der their noses. If you startle one of them
with a political question, he is apt to reply
with a disquisition on rapid transit, or the
moons of Mars. They are like the humble
menial who was always dwelling upon the
problems of existence when she ought to
have been mopping the floor. When her

Workingmen with grievances will do well
to examine the example set by miners em

wronged by the receiver, came into court.
and, after setting forth their plea, rely up
on the laws for such relief as they may be
entitled to. That this is the most sensible
action yet taken by disappointment work
ingmen, there can be no quibble, and this
patient submission to the laws will operate
far more toward securing them sympathy
than all the strikes they could originate.
Even Grant, who was' never squeamish
in such matters, did not venture to rein
state Benjamin P. Ruckle after he bad been
cashiered, punished as a thief, andsehtenc
ed to imprisonment for robbing the widows
and orphans of negro soldiers. It was re
served for Hayes to restore Runkle to the
service which he had disgraced, and to es
tablish a precedent which opens the door for
every thief dismissed from the army.
Tho object of Hayes speech-making tour
through northern New England, it is said
by his friends, is to convince tho people of
that region that he is not the deep and
dangerous conspirator against tho liberties
of tho country they have taken him to be
but simply a harmless idiot, and with the
aid of poor Key his trip has been a great
success.

A VALUABLE MEDICINE. OUChU in
various forms has for many years been one
of the chief articles in the Materia Medica
for the treatment of certain -diseases,
among which are chiefly those affecting
the urinarv. digestive, and circulatory or
trans. The difficulty that was long ex
oenenced in obtaining a preparation of
this valuable drug that could always be
relied upon for uniformity in strength and
absolute purity led to the introduction of
Helmbold's Extract of Buchu, which for
tho last quarter of a century has been ex
tensively used both by physicians and in
house and family practice, and with very
gratifying success. This medicine, like
every other valuable thing, has been imi
