The executive board of District Assembly UW, X. of L , the sec retary of which is the accredited author of the above charges, has directed me to write you, claiming the $3,000 on the proof herewith submitted. "This board has never regarded your offer to have been made in good faith, as we have been reliably informed that you did Dot deposit a dollar in the bank where you claim to have deposited $3, 0i)0 as a reward for the proof referred to. We do not claim that evidence required as proof should in every instance be ver batim, or be actually in the same lan guage used in your editorial notice; but we claim to offer in every instance words to the same effect. I have in my possession- as the custodian of the executive board the following statements, from which I only quote a small portion of the contents: Isam Hughes testified that Benjamin Harrison did say that 1 per day was enough wages for the workingmen par ticipating in the strike of 1877, and he characterized the strikers as lawbreakers, unworthy of the title of citizens. . Martin J. Murphy testifies that Benja min Harrison did say that the strikers had forfeited all claims to recognition by going on a strike; that Benjamin Harn- IlllmilM Wont. In Belforda' Magazine is an able and ex haustive article "About Wool," from J. 8. Moore, the great tariff e: pert of this country, which closes as Follows: "Take, for instance, the great state of Illinois, the total wool product of which in round numbers is abont 6,000, 000 ponnds. Even if the reduction of 10 cents a pound duty on foreign wool is felt in full force on the home grown wool, which of course is not so but let us give the protectionists the full pound of flesh the loss would be 600,000. The stale now has probably 4. 000,000 popula tion, and consumes annually, say, if only t5 woolen goods per capita, $20,000 0"0. Now, free wool would redu( this most necessary article of clothing at least 30 per cent, in average. Therefore the state of Illinois is drauooned by the political republican protection trust machine to keep the present duty on wool and wool ens, and contributes 16,000,000 annually as a tax to the woolen monopolists and trust oligarchy. "I have watched political economy in this country for twenty. one years, and I am perfectly certain that a great revolu tion in the minds of the masses has taken place; above all. the American hs9 for twenty-seven years lieen swindled, op pressed and ,'ucked dry of his hard earn ings by the blessed pmtectinn system. which to him has proved a curse. The farmer who has ix-rliaps twenty sheep, and all the wool he ratst-a may amount to only 40, he is politely and urgently asked to pay not nnly the $40 he gets for biwool, but $"20 more mone, besides as a pure and simple tax to the tanff-and trust oligarchy if he buys 100 worth of woolen goods for himself and family dur ing the year. The old Mumbo Jumbo of home protection is played out, and the pretended solicitude for the workingmen and higher wages is a fraud and a sham The country needs cheaper woolen and cotton clothing, and will have it without the gracious leave of the protection oli garchy."

The following hitter from the wife of the unfortunate temperance evangelist, McOonnell, has been received by Mr. B. H. Quick, of Moiine, and is given pub licity as showing that Mr. McConnell is in the right place a home for inebriates where he is likely to be restored to health in the course of a few months. It is to be hoped, however, that when be is himself again he will conclude to go into some oiher field of labor, and save the tempers nee cause the odium of another possible fall, at the same lime saving himself the added disgrace of failing to live the life which he is trying to point out to others: Cmc.uiO.

Plumb, of Streator, and Mr. H. 8. Gilbert, of Utica. I have been enabled to place Mr. McCon nell under medical treatment at the " Wasningtonian Home," this city, for a period of three months. We are hope ful that such a length of time of absolute rest and proper care may restore him to health, and to the cause for which he has labored so hard in the past.

I am the strikers were not justified in asking more grateful than mere words can ex- for more, and that $ 1 was sufficient for a press to all who helped and sympathized workmeman and he ought to be satisfied. Patrick H. King testified that Benja min Harrison did say that the wages of the strikers were sufficient, that the men must return to work or the militia would force them to submit. William Miller testifies that Harrison at ! the conference said on two occasions "a dollar a day is enough for a workings1 man,' and that if the strikers did not re turn to work they would be put down by the militia at the point of the bayonet. Thomas McHugh testifies that Benja min Harrison threatened the strikers with militia and to force the men back at the point of the bayonet; that the wages were sufficient and all that the railroad companies could afford. Ben Zahm says: "I now quote Benja min Harrison's exact lanquage: 'If I were governor of this state or sheriff of this county I would have every train running if I had to wade in Wood up to my finger tips'" Wm. Huso testifies that Benjamin Harrison did coram nod a militia company during the strike; that he claimed the wages were sufficient; that the men had no right to even claim arbitration. The letter inclosed contained similar statements made by other persons. It continues: "In connection with the above state ments, we wish it distinctly understood that these statements are extracts only that we have original statemenst of the men and from others whose names we are bound to Bhield on account of their occu pation.

He was William Rohan, and he was on trial for eoucine out his wife's eyes. He looked capa ble of the crime, horrible as it is. His square jaws were thickly covered with stubby black beard, and bis closely cropped hair seemed almost to touch bis IKtle, furtive ye.-, sai low and narrow was the retreating f -reheat t.

So great was the prejudice against him, excited by his crime, that it was with difficulty that a jury could be obtained, and even the judges on the bench warretson, Bradon and l avanagh could scarcely con ceal their disgust. Mr, Bohan, who was the first witness, was led to the stand by two court officers. She walked slowly, her cropine eestnres awaken ine overwhelming sympathy in the hearts of all who saw her, and rekindling the fierce horror for the brutal wretch who robbed her of her sight. Her kindly face wore a troub led look, and she turned to the judges before she was well seated and aked tremulously: "Do I have to test if yf "You have have to tell all you know and answer truthfully all the questions put to you, said Judge liar- retson, gently. The troubled look grew deeper. "Can you see me, Mrs. Bohan f asked Dis trict Attorney Fleming. No, sir, 1 can not,'" she replied, sadly. "Perhaps if you lift your veil you can see?" continued the lawyer, atluJing to the green bandage about her eves. rhe removed it, and a murmur ran around the court room, which the judges themselves were too af fected to StOD. Po'ian winced and turned his head aside that he might not look upon thow pupilless sockets. The poor woman waited patiently till she was told to put the bandage on again. "How did you lose your eyesightr asked the lawyer. "William put up his hand in the dark, and I ran against it, sir, she replied with pleading tone in her voice. "Do you mean to tell me this was done ac cidentally V exclaimed Mr. Fleming indig- nantlv. "It just happened this way." answered Mrs. Bohan, earnestly turning her sightless face appealmgly toward the jury. "On April 'JfJ, ISST, William and I were living to' getber at Rockaway Beach. William was in bed that night and I took some mom yout of his pocket and went into the next room. There was no light and William was groping about in the darkness when his finger hap pened tog-t into my eve. I have not been able to see out of it since." Here she paused a moment and then, as if fearing she had not laid sufficient emphasis on the innocence of her bus liana, she added earnestly: "It was all an accident, and he was not to blame. When she heard the voice of her husband' lawyer bow quickly and readily she swered, and how relieved she appeared, and how the troubled look passed out of her face. The questions sounded like the most exquisite Irony. "Did you and your husband ever quarrel asked the lawyer. "Oh, no. We got along very well togethei I never made any complaint against him, she replied. "Did he not intentionally assault youf continued. "Indeed no, sir," she replied promptly. "He just put up his hand in the dark and I ran against it. It was quite as much my fault his." The daughters next testified, and one them, Mrs. Barry, told how she had seen the blood on her mother's cheek just after the ult, and how she had heard her fatheT say he would give her a mark that she would take to her grave. She also beard him say be would pull the other eye out. Mrs. Hoffman, another daughter. heard her father tbreatea her mother. Mrs. Mary Farrell, a sister of Mrs. Bohan, gave the strongest evidence. She was heart and soul against the prisoner, and she evi dently wanted to see him punished for bis sickening crime. She said: "I have seen that man," pointing to Bohan, who scowled back at her f rom under bis lowering black brows, "strike his wife many times, and more than once I have beard him threaten to Injure her. 1 heard him say once, Do you see those cedars out there? I will swing, for you yet.' " Bohan himself was pat on the stand, and he seemed to feel the universal execration that looked out from hundreds of eyes be low him. He kept his eyes down most of the time, and talked in a low tone. He never raised his eyes from the flrwr, except now and then to glance furtively at the J"T- "Did you ever strike your wife, asked Dis trict Attorney Fleming. Yes, I often struck her." was the ana- bashed reply, "and I have bit her in the face, too, but her eyes were put out by accident. 1 never did that Mrs. Bohan was recalled and denied her daughter's testimony about threats being made by Bohan. "He never threatened me at all, said the faithful creature, true to the last. "He was always kind to me," and she was led, grop ing, to her seat. The speeches wore strong, and every one l stened to hear them. Then the jury filed out and the crowd waited for half an hour for the verdict. Bohan 's hands twitched nervously, and he could scarcely keep still in his chair. When the jury came in be looked up eagerly, and hen the verdict "guilty" was pronounced his head fell dejectedly on the tck of the ohair in front of him, and be put bis hands opto his face. Mrs. Bohan had been led outside to a little ante-room by her daugh- tan. When she beard the verdict the name old troubled look crept over her gentle face, and she swaved her bod y back and forth in her chair. She was led away, talking to herself. The infernal brute was tried yesterday on the second count in the indictment gouging out his wife's remaining eye in July last- ana promptly convicted, lie was sentenced on the first count to fourteen years and six months, and on the second to twelve years and five months ( mprisonment at hard labor. The highest penalty would nave been thirty years, and it is difficult for the ordinary mind to understand why he did not get every day of it. CARLISLE RENOMINATED. Some Kxtraota from Bis 8 pooch to BU Constituent. Cincinnati, O., Sept IV. The Democrats of the Sixth Kentucky congressional district renominated John G. Carlisle by acclama tion yesterday. After the nomination there were loud calls for Carlisle, and he appeared on the stage and delivered an address, being received with an ovation and repeatedly in terrupted with applause. He commenced by congratulating bis con stituents on the fact that the doctrine of revenue reform was now fairly before the people, after years of bard struggling. "The Democratic platform," he said, "has de clared that unnecessary taxation is unjust taxation, and upon this declaration the Dem ocratic party will stand or fall in this con test. The question to decide is whether the government shall continue the present pro tective tariff system, entailing unnecessary taxation, or return to the safe and just sys tem that prevailed before the war. Yon might as well say that a man can grow rich by picking his own pocket, as that the coun try is benefited by this present tariff system." Mr. Carlisle, further along in Lis speecn. made the following statement: "The only cocuitations in which there is a disparity in wages between this Country and burope are those which can not, from their nature, be protected by protective tariff auch as car penters, brick and stone masons, steamboat employes, railroad employ ee, etc." "The Democratic party, said be, does not ad vocate free trade. It recognizes the right of the government to raise money for the purpose of defraying its expenses and meeting its obligations, and we believe that this money should be raised by levying duties on im ported goods.

EX-PRISONERS OF WAR. A Hlhtorlral Fact Made Public by Gen. Cohnrn Officers Elected. IvDiAN.'.roLis, Ind.. Sept 19 The Na tional association of Union ex-Prisoners of War met here yesterday. One hundred del egates were present, representing every northern state. The major part of the day was spent in excange of reminiscences of prison life. Gun. John Coburn, of this city, stated that during the war he was ap pointed by Governor Morton a special agent to endeavor to have Indiana prisoners ex changed, but Secretary Stanton told him it was not the policy of the government; that it would not lie an equitable exchange to re turn a healthy, sound Confederate for a starved, diseased, and broken-down Union man. Hq said be insisted at the time that Governor- Morton should make these facts known; but Morton, m deference to Stan ton's wishes, refused to have it done. A committee was appointed to look after congressional legislation and the following officers elected: President, CoL T. H. Mc Kee, Washington City; secretary and treas urer, L. P. W illiams, Washington City. The next meeting will be held in Milwaukee. A Terrible Day fur the Citizens ol Jack sonville The New Cases for Twenty Four Boars Number 156 A Train Load of Refugee Who Have No Destination Physicians Volunteering from the North Contribution from a Race Course. Jacksonville, Fla., Sept 1!. Yesterday was the most terrible day in the fever his tory of this state, and the record of new cases is 156 for the twenty -four hours ended at 6 p. m., many more than has occurred in any one day since the fever commenced. The day watt bright and sunny, and the hot sun shine on the soaked earth is very favorable to the development of yellow fever, and a large increase of the disease is expected for the remainder of the week. The death roll was fearful for a city like this, more than half depopulated. The num ber was twenty. Total cases to date, 1,303; total number of deaths, 15.1. All the nurses here have been put to work, and no more nurses will be received except those who have had the fever. The deaths were: W. H. Moss, W. Jones, P. Lopez, Mr. Gorgan, S. Grant, Mrs. Spearman, Mrs. (Towly, Mrs. H. E. Smith, Mrs, Folley, J. Graves, Mr. Jacobs, W. G. Farmer, Julia Jones, V. Frazie, Miss Edith Schnyder, Mr. Jacoby, Mr. Odea, Miss Ida C. Harland, Mr. Hud dell, Mr. McNear. Besides the above Mr. H. Granthall, a merchant, is reported dead since the list was made out BOARDS OF HEALTH CONFER. A Meeting Held at Nashville Takes Ac tion on the Yellow Fever. NASHvnxg, Tenn., Sept 19. A confer ence of delegates from the boards of health of many of the southern states and Illinois was held here yesterday for the purpose of discussing the yellow fever situation. An exhaustive interchange of ideas was had. and resolutions adopted declaring it the sense of the conference that ten days' detention of vellow fever refugees should be enforced against those destined to points south of the northern boundary of Tennessee; but in view of the lateness of the season it is recom mended that healthful refugees, whose bag gage has been disinfected, should be permit ted to go north of that line without deten tion; that the appearance of one case of fever in a town should not be sufficient to warrant quarantine against that town until other cases have made their ap pearance, and in no case should a city be quarantined against without inquiries having first been made of the authorities of the place rumored to have been infected. It urgently recommended that such change be made in the national health service as would, through proper assistance and coop eration with state boards give protection and security to the public health. THE HOUSE CA0CUS DECLINES TO ADOPT GATES' RESOLUTION, And Congress Will Be Found Doing Busi ness at the Old Staad Indefinitely China Bas Something to Kay to Unci Samuel Abont Observing Treaties Sherman Talks Annexation and Cannon Finance. Vashis0T05 Cm, Sept 19. The presi dent yesterday transmitted to the senate, in reply to a resolution adopted on the 1 1th inst, and calling for the same, a report from the secretary of state, together with accompany ing correspondence, in relation to Che im nene treaty now pending ratification by the Chinese empire. The report and correspon dence do not throw any light on the present status of the treaty in China, being alto gether devoted to the negotiations relating thereto. The most significant letter is one from the Chinese government to Minister Den by on Jan 12, 1887, in which the atten tion of the United States government is called to the outrage committed upon Chi nese latxrers in the United States, and re minding the United States government that hinese laborers residing in the United States are entitled by treaty to come and go at their own free will and accord, and to protection in all their rights, privileges, im munities, and exemptions. The letter then proceeds: i Recently outrages of a serious nature- such as driving the Chinese from their fields of labor and places of alxtde or trade; burn ing and murdering them -have been repeat edly committed, and the local authorities have not extended to them timely protection, nor have they exerted themselves with seal in bringing the perpetrators to justice, and consequently no justice has been obtained in any of th cases, for which the sufferers feel bitterly grieved, even in their very bones, and those who hear of it feel pain to their hearts. i "While your government in vain professes to guarantee protection to the Chinese latmrers, they, in reality, do not derive any substantial protection as demanded by their rights. China treats the Americans strictly in conformity with the treaty stipulations. but the L nited States treats the Chinese in such manner as if the treaties were made for no purpose." i On Jan, a), 187 Secretary Bayard sub mitted a propostion to exclude all Chinese laborers from this country for a period of thirty years. In reply to this proposition the Chinese minister stated that he also had several things which he intended to propose. but could not under his instructions do so until the outrage cases were settled. GEN. HARRISON KEPT BUSY. 'he 3 Of Be- The "American" Nominee Accepts. New York, Sept 19. James Langdon Curtis has issued his letter of acceptance of the nomination for president tendered biro by the National American party. Mr. Curtis approves the platform of the party, adopted by its convention at Washingtona month ago, and bis letter consists of arguments and dec larations in support thereof. Mr. Cur tis declares that J. L. CUTTt. none of the old par ties are truly national; all are partial. The American party alone can furnish a common ground of political action. Desperate Burglar and Bad Shot. Tkrrk Haute, Ind., Sept 19. Burglars entered the jewelry bouse of Sheldon Swope & Co., Monday night and attempted to over power Edward Patterson, who sleeps over the store, in order to force him to give them the combination to the safe. A scuffle ensued in which the burglar nsed a razor, with which he cut young Patterson seventeen times on the arms, breast and neck. Patterson fired five shots at his as sailant, who escaped through a back door. Before leaving the burglar poured kerosene around the safe and in the rubbish in the cellar, and then set fire to the building. John Dillon Released. London, Sept 19. John Dillon, who was sentenced to jail for a violation of the crimes act, was unconditionally released by the lord lieutenant yesterday and received an ova tion. His release was owing to his health as reported upon by a medical board, and has nothing to do with the proceedings of the Three Delegations Visit Him Bis marks to Kentacklans. 1'iiif anapulis, Ind., Sept. 19. Two large dl-gationd, one from Illinois and the other from Kentucky, called on Gen.

An hour after that, however, thedel egates attending the meeting of the National Association of ex-Prisoners of War visited the general On each occasion he made a short speech, that to the Kentuckians be ing the Inngest, The latter visitors, and the Illinnisanq, who came from Danvdle, num bered abnnt .100 and 800 respectively. CoL W, R Jewel), of Danville, spoke for the lUi noisans, and A. E. Wilbvm, candidate for con ktpss in the Louisville district two yearn ago, introduced the Kentuckian to the general. On both occasions, especially the latter, was great enthusiasm manifested. The general's reference to Henry Clay was choered again and again.

Some Very Plain Talk and Grave Charges by a Baptist Clergyman. New York, Sept. 19 The Herald says that Rev. M. V. McDuffle has created a sen sation in New Brunswick, N. J., by recent utterances from the pulpit of the Kemsen Avenue Baptist church. He denounced sev eral noted men about town for the ruin of a young musical amateur, and took the law yers to tnsk for, covering up the crime. On Sundav evening he scored some of the local physicians who bad, be said, been guilty of the crime of murder. ''Judging from statements I have heard,' he continued, "there are 500 infantile mur ders committed in this city by physicians every year. The people need to be taught not only that this destruction of Ufa n con trary to nature, ruinous to health, the came of disease, but that it in murder and a sin against God. There are physicians who, knowing the penalty of the law upon those who thus destroy life, use their knowledge to make whatever demand they choose upon the guilty parties. The married women are said to be as bad in this respect as the un married. Mr. McDuffle then read a letter from the superintendent of the Florence mission, Bleeker street, New York. This is an insti- tutiou providing a home for fallen women who have been recloimed. The latter showed that the majority of the inmates, by their o n written confession, were first corrupted and influenced to lead a life of shame by their family physicians. The word of this clergyman have created a profound sensation at New Brunswick, and bis church is crowded nightly. WILL HAVE TO MOVE ON. Train Load of Kef a gees In a 11 ti able Situation. Atlanta, Ga, Sept 19. A train load of Florida refugees reached this city yester day. I hey were all from Gainesville, Fla, and all had health certificates.

At the Dem ocratic caucus last night Oates of Alabama offered a resolution authorising the speaker of the house and the presiding officer of the senate to declare both booses adjourned at noon, Oct 1. Oates said he thought it would he good policy to pass the resolution, as the responsibility for the failure to re- luce the suplus taxation would be thrown upon the senate. Townshend of Illinois moved to amend, so as to adjourn Sept 27. The senate might then amend by naming Oct I. In the course 31 his remarks he said that the Republicans were making strenuous efforts to carry the aext house, because they knew that if Harri son was elected he would be powerless with out the house at bis back. Springer offered an amendment providing that after Saturday next all leaves of ab euce asked for be granted, and meantime no business be transacted save the reading of the journal. If the senate passed a tariff bill, leaves of absence should be recalled. He was opposed to the Oates resolution. If he was a Republican member of the house he would go down oo his kneee for the passage of the resolution. Sowden of Pennsylvania said that all the propositions should he voted down, as they would prove injurious to the party. He bad never been anything but a Democrat Laughter. McCrearj of Kentucky favored the resolution. The house had done its duty in passing a bill to reduce taxation. McKin- ney of New Hampshire thought it was sui cide for the Democrats? to propose an ad journment. Many other members spoke for and against the resolution. Finaliy Whitthorne of Tennessee moved that the caucus adjourn for one week. Hoi man moved that the caucus adjourn without lay. This latter was carried by a yea aud nay vote, and the caucus at 10 o'clock stood adjourned. Less than 100 members were present I SHERMAN ON RETALIATION. He Opposes It on lieneral Frinrlple and Looks Confidently for Annexation, j Washington City, Sept 19. Sherman spoke yesterday in the senate in opposition to retaliation on Canada, wnose refusal to per mit our fishing vessels to ship their fish through Canadian territory he characterized as unchristian and selfish. He thought that the bill ol last year gave abundant powers to the president to secure the end aimed at, and objected to granting further powers. President Grant had asked for similar pow ers, and congress had refused to grant tbem, and should congress now give to President Cleveland what had been refused to Presi dent Grant f He deprecated the passage of eucb laws as proposed in the retaliation bill in haste and without sufficient consideration. This had been done before, under what seemed great provocation, and had not re sulted well, lo seek a quarrel upon such a pretense was neither manly, dignified nor just I The practical solution of these questions that had been pending between the United States and our Canadian neighbors for so many years was a political and commercial union, but that could not be reached by unfriendly legislation. The true policy of the govern ment of the United States was to tender to Canada in a fraternal way freedom of trade and intercourse, and in such a manner that it would be an invitation to Canada to be come a part of the American government He saw no difficulties in the way of the ac complishment of a such an object The in stitutions and people of the two countries were substantially alike, and such a union could only be accomplished by the free and hearty assent of both people. Retaliation would only defeat it With the firm con viction that that "consummation mostdej: voutly to be wished" was within the womb of destiny, he was not willing to vote for a measure that was not demanded by national honor, and that would have a tendency to postpone the "good time coming,'' when the American nag would be the symbol of the Union of all the knglish-speaking people on the continent, from the Rio Grande to the Arctic ocean. lie library, which be said would cost on present plans $15,000,000. instead of the I t-tAii,(t00 originally estimated. The bill went over. A bill was reported authorizing the war office to prescribe rules, etc., for the care and management of the St Clair Flats canal, and the house adjourned.
