Apropos of the Union's fling at Maj.
Bviford'a son as the appointee of Con
gressman Cable to the Annapolis cadet-
ship, it may be said that Mr. Cable has
made a radical departure from Mr. Gest's
. iffftctice and has recognized his friend
- ... whereas 'n his appointments his prede
I ' eessor had not the sense of gratitude to

alls recommendation of the son of
r:. ' "7
Msj.L. M. Buford frr a cadetship at
Annapolis naval t.cademy. It says that
if Congressman Gcst htd bad the ap
pointment, the selection would have been
baetd on "merit Insiesd ot favoritism."
The Intimation that Mr. Cable should be
guidtii by what his prt-dncessor would
have done is as much of a gross rt flection
on Mr. Cable as is the unwarranted flins
which the Union casts on one of our old
est families, which Mr. Cable has seen fit
to honor in this appointment, and the
morning paper, to the 'contrary notwith
standing; The Argcs is fully confident
that Master Buford is possessed of as
much merit as any one Mr. Gest could
have selected, and will make ful y as
creditable a record.
Vile lai cler.
The Union has evidently been s ibsi
dized again. The self me influence that
caused it to fight the advent of the Chi
cago street car syndicate into Rock Isl
and and the establishment of street car
Bervice over the bridges is again directing
Its movements. It dies not like The
Abocs' term of "selfish interesu" as appli
cable to the opposition to the established
route of the Hennepin canal, and asserts
that the entire canal priject ras founded
on selfish interests, th it it originated in
selfish interests, was fostered by eeifia
interests, and has . tx come a success
through selfish interests . While there is
no doubt" tbat the Selfish interests,"
which have become so conspicuously ap
parent of late have btei connected with
the canal from the start, the same narrow
spirit is not true of all who have been
identified wi h the pnj ct. Hence fit
Union's charge is an insisting libel on all
who have worked faithfully, zeal.uely,
yea, and unselfishly for the success of the
project, and it is as utteily devoid of all
sen.blnce of truth as it s malicious and
slanderous. And though those same
selfish interests miy be at lb
heltu of the Union, tco, they cannot
manipulate the course of public affairs
in the nation or lccally to suit
their private and particular ends, thougii
they have the power to subsidize such
insipid weaklings as the morning; paper
published in this city. The Argcs has
no disposition to support the route on
the south side of Rock river. It would
have been better pleased with the more
northern course, and it btlieves it cor
rectly favors the sentimen; of the think
ing people of th's city, wl en it says if
the engineers employ 3d by the
government have decided the southern
route the most practicable and best, '.it
should be sustained, for it is only a
stone's throw away f rem the other any a?.
The people of this community are do
so much interested in the rilative merits
of the routes under consideration. They
are interested in something of more im
portance than that. They are for the
Hennepin canal, and that only, first last
and all the time, and should rise in their
indignation and put down all factions
which se k in the advancement of per,
sonal gain to impede the progress of its
advancement. That is wbst they will do
through the Improvement association to
morrow night, unless Tee Argus is

backs "Yours In Distress" 1 Feeling
Very Melancholy Now.
Chicago, June tO. Officers from the
Central and Desplaines Street stations
made a good catch last night in the arrest
of a supposed diamond thief on the west
side. The arrest was tinctured with just
enough romance to make it interesting.
About ten days ago a burglar stole from
Mrs. George Morganroth's bed room, at
42t3 Calumet avenue, four diamond rings
valued at t00. Yesterday Mrs. Morgan
roth received a note dated "Saturday, 2
p. m.,n and signed "Yours in Distress,"
which read as follows: "If you wish to
secure the gems and diamonds you have
lost, wear a shawl over your head and
carry a white handkerchief in your left
hand so that I can recognize you, and meet
me at 8:30 this evening at the coner of
Sangamon and Monroe streets. Bring
tt0 with you. It you do not I can easily
sell the diamonds for that amount. Do
not attempt to notify the police, as I will
hare one man to watch you from the time
you leave your house and two men will
wateh you at the corner of Sangamon aud
Made Another Appointment.
Of course Mrs. Morganroth could not
keep that appointment. Yesterday after
noon she received another note from
"Yours in Distress. " It was dated "Sun
day, ll:3(i a. m.," and read: "As 1 did not
get the note I wrote you Saturday in the
mail early enough for Saturday's delivery,
I will make the time f meeting Monday
eve at ttie same time (S:30) and the same
place." But the polw had already been
informed of the roblery aud Detectives
Costello ami Darrac, of the Central ta
tion, ;ere dctaijoit on the C):se. Sirs'. Mgr
ganroth placed the mysterious Mters in
the oflioers" bauds. To throw her watchers
or! the. track, t-lte drove in a cab to her
brother iu-la's trunk store ) State
street, yesHrday afternoon, and there me
the two detectives. Theofliccirs arraaged
Hatrhert a Little Scheme.
Mrs. Morganroth should drive in a cab
alone to Parnramon and Mooaoe streets to
meet the thief at 8:30. The officers would
foe in hiding in the.vicinity and arrest the
thief the moment he approached her. Mrs.
Morganroth, who is a small brunette of
delicate build, was fearful that the thief
or thieves might shoot her when the of
ficers came out of hiding, but after much
persuatioushe cotsented to carry out her
part of the programme if J. Hv Morgan
roth, her brother-in-law, could ride -with
her in the cab. An .hour before the ap
pointed time. Detectives Costello aud Dar
rac and Mr. Childs, a brother of Mrsj Mor
ganroth, wpre 'in hiding in ex-Alderman
Harris' house, at the southwest corner of
Sangamon and1 Monroe streets.
Made It.Qulie a Show.
. A dozen reporters had the "tip' and
were nlanted" in the dark alleys and
back yards of the vicinity. Desplaines
Street station heard of the intended ar
rest and Lieutenant 'NV'heeW, Sergeant
Roehe. and Detectives 'Hoffman and
Fleming quietly secreted themselves
around he corners without " informing
Oftieers Costello and Darrac that they
were in the vicinity. Protuptly at :30
Mra Morganroth and her brother-in-law
drove up in a hansom cab. Ms. Morgan
roth hlichted alone and the cab drove
awav. t-lie was wearing a prnk-colored
dress, with a white shawl thrown over a
head of dark -brown hair. As she walked
back and forth under the glare of the
electric light, carelessly fwinjring a white
handkerchief in her hand, she trembled
and her face was as white as the silken
I nter the Heavy Villain.
Ten long minutes rolled by, which
seemed as if they were as many hoirrs to
Mrs. Morganroth, when the cab returned,
and just then a slim -oung man, wearing
a Derby bat and a black suit of clothes,
stepjx'd our from the northeast corner and
handed ber a small match box. She
handed him her purse well filled. Just
then Sergeant Roche placed a glistening
rex-olver in the face of the young man and
told Lira he was wanted. "Why, what do
you want me for?"-asked the thief, with
the greatest surprise and utmost coolnes,
as he looked .down the gun barrel. The
thief liad no chce to run. and the Cen
tral Station detectives were surprised to
see otner oflfi(rs making the arrest.
The Diamond Were Itvick.
The matchbox he gave Mrs. Morganroth
cou tai ned some pieoes of brohen brief. He
denies committing the robbery. "d says
he saw an "ad in a paper olTerinij a re-ward-fcir
fiie return f the diamonds and
he concluded to play the rrirk with the
matchbox and get $300. from Mrs. Morgan
roth. But had he escaped he wouldn't
have been winner, tor the purse tbe laCy
gave bim was. filled with brown paper. At
the station his name was found to tie
Charles Bur chard. He said be was a
waiter and sold sandwiches for Chapin &
Gore at Washington park on Derby day.

A CRUSADE AGAINST QUAY.
Philadelphia Merchants and Preachers
Start a Hostile Movement.
Phiadelphia, June 80. An address ts
the citizens of Pennsylvania was issued
yesterday, signed by 110 business and pro
fessional men, all of whom are Republic
ans, claiming to point out the causes ot
Jthe "degradation of publie affairs" in tbe
state and the necessary steps towards im
provement. Senator Quay's management
of the Republican machine is alleged to be
corrupt and in strong contrast to the
rank and file of tbe party. Quay is held
responsible for the overwhelming disaster
the party met with last fall. His lieuten
ants in the legislature are charged with
committing a political blunder by hostil
ity to ttie ballot reform bill, in violation
01 the pledges of the party.
Demand Quay' Retirement.
"These things have found a atting cul
minatioo tn the roobery of the city and
state treasury. As the party will soon be
called upon to nominate a state and city
treasurer and attorney general, the nomi
nations must be given to honest men ot
the party will meet with a sot her defeat.
In the presence of these facts Pennsylvania
Republicans must not hesitate as to their
duty, or be in doubt as to their eourse. It
is a crisis, and it can only be met by the
retirement of Mr. Quay. More competent
aad worthy leadership is necessary, and
an unflinching demand must be made for
the retirement of these men from the
places which they have disgraced." Many
of the professional men signing the docu
ment are clergymen.
