Well, bow, poor old jealous Daren-
port, standing over on the other side of
the creek with its hands ia Its pockets,
sulking like a small boj who hasn't been
lnrited to join In the fan by his com
ptnlons. Elixir needed in Rock Island!
Why. the people are so aoaire and full of
life here that they hardly find time to
est or sleep. When a Darenporter comes
over he is spotted at once by his shiftless
Rait, and It requires the combined effort
of the police force to save him from be

Tub. fate of Rev. Samuel Conde, of the
Westminister rrrshjWrian church of
Rtx-kfonl, is a warning to ministers to
restrict tbcmalves to preaching the gospel
of Christ, or. if they fed that their duty
absolutely requires them to touch upon
po'ilical and social topics to at least con
One tbrmselvrs to the uae of temperate
language. The feeling against Mr Con do
has its origin in a sermon which he
preached, last winter upon the annual
Parity ball. Tne ball had always been
under the patronage of some of the most
high-minded, albeit fashionable, women
la Rockford. It is, of couse, un
necessary to say that strict decorum
always prevailed and that nothing
ever occurred at which the most pertina
cious stickler for propriety could carp.
He denounced the ball very bitterly, but
the most sensational portion of his dis
course was his distinct intimation that
virtuous women did not dance. In thus
casting a stigma upon honorable women
Mr. Conde aroused an enmity that has
just terminated ia his enforced retire
meat from the pulpit. If the lesson is
taught to other sensational preachers not
too presume too much upon the consid
erfion universally extended to the cloth.

There is some little wonder in the
minds of army folks just now caused by
the apparent establishment of a new pres
idential cuitora with regard to their peo
ple, and many an eye that has heretofore
been languidly closed under the dullness
of the routine service life is now wide
open and sparkling in anticipation of a
possible treat- This new custom, or
rather the indication that points to the
establishment of such. Is the designation
of an officer of the army whenever the
president goes anywhere as his special
aid. When he went ti'New York to at
tend the centennial celebration, Lieut.
Judson, of the engineer corps, a personal
friend of Harrison's, was designated in
this capacity, and now in Boston Lieut.
Col. Mansfield hss been made a "special
aid" for the occssion. What the duties
are is somewhat vaguely understood,
but the belief here is that this indi
vidual is to be on hand in uni
form wherever the president may happen
to be, to lend a little official glitter to what
might otherwise be a rather sombre,
broadcloth-lined scene, and to be of gen
eral utility whenever possible. Inasmuch
as the president is likely to go almost any.
where at any time, and as the "special
aid" seems to be a local officer in every
case, it thus happens that every officer of
the army with a certain rank has now the
chance to become such, just as every
American younsrfr is told that be may
sometime become president of the United
States, and the usually gray tones of army
life are now suffused with a rosy hope,
aat points to a chance to come into the
presidential Held of vision. This, to a
service man, is an event of Importance,
for there is many a good billet becoming
vacant at all times, and unless one comes
up above the surface otto to a walla
there is danger of being lost in the whirl.

JUDGE FIELD'S STATEMENT.
The Deputy Marshal Itelailed to I'roteet
Hint The Assault.
Sax Frakcihoo, Aug. IX Tbe southern
overland train arrived at the station in Oak
land shortly after II o'clock yesterday morn
ing. A great crowd bad collected, tele
frrapbic intelligence of tbe Lathrop tragedy
having preceded tbe arrival of tbe train, and
the sleeping car in which Justice Field was
sitting was at once besieged by United States
officials and neatpaper men. Justice Field
maintained bis quiet demeanor and narrated
to tb press representatives tbe following
particulars of tbe shooting:
laftge Terry's Threats.
1 ran tell yon the story in a few words.
r ur ins um lew maniiM an m...M lm
ports, both public and personal, have reached
me that Judge Terry bad threatened to sub
ject me to some indignity if be should hap
pen to meet me. Tbis fact caused tbe United
Htates marshal to decide to provide such
protection as be could during my stay in tbis
late. W ben I started for I Angeles to
bold court. Deputy Kagle accompanied me.
He seemed to lie a quM, gentlemanly official,
though I only met him twice chile Sway
from Los Angeiee. He aked me in that dty
when I inteii'ied to return, and accompanied
me, taking a seat in tbe sleeping ckT opposite
The Aaaault la the Dlalng-Itaons.
"We beard this morning that Judge Terry
and his wife were on the train, but paid do
attention to tbe fact. When we arrived at
Lathrop we enteivd tbe eating station to get
breakfast. I took a seat at the end of tbe
table. Natfle sat on one side of me. Trrry
and bis wife came into the room soon after.
As soon u Mr. Terry saw me sbe went out
of tbe room, as I alter ward learned, return
ing to tbe car for ber annbeL Judge Terry
rose, and I suppned be intended to accom
pany ber. Iustead of doing so, be walked
liark of me, and struck lite m beavy slap in
the face. I waa completely astonished, and,
seeing he was making ready to s'rike again.
Nagle cried out: "Stop, stop! but Terry did
not desist, and as be waa raising his arm a
second time, Kagie shot at bim, tbe bullet
entering his heart. He fell to tbe floor, Nagle
shooting a sec md time, but the second shot
not striking bim. Nagle was arrrsted at
Tracy and taken to Stockton to await tat
result of tbe inquest That is tbe complete
story, so far as 1 am aware of tbe facts."
When Jodcee Need frotertioa. What IteitT

States circuit court, in this city, upon whom
Mrs. T-rry made a personal assault last

tbis fact, and upon threats declared to
have bn made openly by Terry against

General Miller was found at his home on
Delaware street and asked concerning tbe
command which be was qioted as having
made to the marshal at Sac Francisco. "It
was given out," said be, "under my direc

and I believe soma others brought to my
mind the case, referring to the trouble ther
had been out ther lastsucimer, and saying
that ther would likely be t-ouUe again this
summer. There was danger that Judge
Terry, who was stated to o i violent and
desperate man, would Terr likely make a
deadly assault upon Judge Kield and Judge
Sawyer one or both of them and that

on taking his seat, made a vigorous speech,
going over tb progress, wealth and pros
perity of th state, extolling tbe Republican

denouncing the "shani civil-service reform"
of a Democratic congress, and declaring in
favor of the prohibitory laws.
Permanent Orgaalsatlon and Ballots.

GRADY REPLIES TO CLARKSON.
The Atlanta F.di tor's Jastlflcatioa of th
Wrath of th Ueorgiana.
Atlanta, Ga , Aug. 15. I u reply to th
statement made by the acting postmaster
general Tuesday for publication, in reference
to tbe appointment of Charles C Penny to
a position in tbe Atlanta pustoflioe, Tbe Con
stitution contains tbe following eiiucial:
"That tbe authorities in Washington ar
determined to distort tbe facts relative to the
appointment of the negro Penny to a place in
th Atlanta postofUcd is rksuiy shown ty
tb telegram printed yesterday. Nearly ev
ery statement attributed to Acting Poettnas
ter General Clarksou in tbat telegram is false
on tbe face of it, ami the telegram may justly
be regarded as a deliberate attempt ou tb
part of an official, supposed to be cios to tbe
administration, to deceive tbe public with
reference to an event which has Income no
Alleges That Penny Stood Lowest.
"Mr. Clarkson says tbat tb Atlanta post
master, Geo. Lewis, 'jppoiuted Cba-ie C.
Penny, who stood at tbe beaJ -f tbe civ il
service list of eligible.' This is falsa. When
A S- tmmT mm tnm iowat in
a list of two, and Lewis did not discover un
til afterward that Sturgis, tbe whit appli
cant, was not eligible, lor be appointed bim
to a clerkship in another lie par traeut tbe
next day. Lewis himself says that be ap
pointed Penny to the position tn tbe registry
department tcaue he would titer b lea
liable to cohie in contact with the public
Another Statement Challenged.
But Mr. Clarkson says tbat Penny was
assigned to work in tbe registry division,
not ia tb same room with tbe yoang lady,
bat in another. Tb impression here sought
to be left on the public mind is false. Ex
Postmaster Renfroe, wbo knows a great deal
mora about tb workings of tb postoffloe
her than Lewis, says tbat the clerks in tb
registry department ar necessarily brought
into contact and association. Mr. Clarkson
says that tb young lady and her father, wbo
waa superintendent of the registry division
and bad the assignment of clerks, both re
signed because a negro had been appointed
to a plac In tb office. That this is absolute
ly falsa ia shown by Mr. Clarkson himself,
who goes on tossy that there wer five ne
gro clerks in tne postoffice under tbe Demo
cra tic postmaster.
Aa Attempt at Whitewashing ChargsA,
"This attempt at whitewashing, which em
anates from Washington, will not be success
ful Tbe people of Atlanta know what tbey
ar about, and in this progressive, liberal
city, public sen timent is never at fault in a
matter of this kind. If all tbat Mr. Clark
son has said is true, how is it that Mr. Van
Winkle, a Republican, refuses to remain on
Mr. Lewis' bond! If tb postmaster did not
violate ths civil service law, bow hi it tbat
Jndgs Henry B. Tbompkins comes off his
bond on that very ground, and ahows that
tb appointment of tb negro was deliberate
and inexcusable! The Constitution assures
Mr. Clarkson that neither the administra
tion nor any of its servants will be per
mitted to slander and'.miarpreseut Atlanta."
