Some timo ago when the proprietors of Truth became con vinced 1 hat the letter was a forgery they wrote to Garfield so declaring and dcri ring thai llie correspondence should be suppressed from the public until all the facts in the case could be secured. That mission havinglbeeri successfully accomplished the fol lowing was sent: , ToJas.A. Garjiebl, President-elect of the Uni erl states: b:r:-A1ter a searching investiga tion in which we have (pared neither time, energy nor money we have traced the Morey letter to its or igi'ii ami found that it isa forgery. Thi acknowledgement is due from the journal in which the letter first ap peared. It is made voluntarily nudas an act of simple justice, for while we believed as we did until a few weeks past that you were the author of the letter no Urbe could tempt nor thr at intimidate us into nuikiiig a contrary statement, but having ase rltiincd our error now it is gratification to us to give the same prominence to the acknowledgement that we gave to the forged letter itself and thereby make all the amends in our poever for the wrong for which we were responsi ble. Upon the instant that our investiga tion convinced us that the letter was spurious we privately informed you of our conclusion at that time. We were advised that the ends of justice might be impeded by a public avowal such as we now make, but as will ap pear from the appended let' er from I). G. Javne that that consideration no longer exists and we do to-day what the obsci'vauce of the principles on Wiicn our paper was established and by which it has been conducted would have impelled us to do immed iately upon discovering that the let ter was a forgery and which nothing 'ould have prevented but the desire to fasten the guili where it belongs. We. published the letter in gooel faith, believing you were the author, and while we so beheved neither tempiaioti, threats nor torce, could influence us to repudíale it. Ihving now satiMieel ourselves of its spurious character, no false pride nor selfish motive of any kind retains ns from announcing swdi lo be our conclusion, thereby allaying the doubt that now , exisl9 respecting its It 111 hcnlU'il V, ,, - ,, ..... ,,' I i tu-i i.i i tt 1 1 j , t ntiii In addition 'Vrulh receietl tho fol lowing from Jay no : New Yo hk, Dec. 13, '80. Josnni llAUT.--De.nr Sir: In answer to your note of yesterday I would say that I can see no good reason for longer withholding tus statement you desire made in your paper, viz : That you are now satisfied Iron) evidence in your possession that the letter published by you, purport ing te luve been written by Geu. iJ. A. Garfield to I). L. .Morey, of Lynn, Mass., was a forgery. Fully under standing the imposition practiced upon you by certain members of i lie National Democratic Committee, ou w hose assurance you relied with re gard to the gcuuiuess of the loiter; and knowing how earnestly you have worked to aseertaiu the author ship i' ft he fraud, and by following every clue that seemed to lead to its solution, and Hilly appreciating your ott repeated declarations that your only wish in the premises was to as certain and proclaim the exact truth, I deem, in justice to all concerned, that the time has come when you should say that the letter was u forgery, for, with the proofs in your possession, there can be but little doubt, as to the real criminal. Very respectfully, E. G. Jayne. Truth also says, editorially : When the Morey letter came to us we be lieved it to .be a genuine letter ot J. A. Garfield, and our belief became an absoluieonviction when Speaker Randall, 'Senator Uarnum, A. S Hewett, ami other prominent mem bers oi the Democratic National Coin mil tee, better ableto judge than we. unhesitai ingly pronounced ii genuine, and upon their assuraucje jre publish ed it in a form best calcnhtte"d lo im press a conclusion of it gi'nuincness on th" people. ., But wtieu iu' cyiirt the enveran! was cut at the ends, and a single thickness-oí paper held be t ween the eve und the Tiiht revealed, for l he first ftnVeVtlie fact that the original address upon, the envelope bail been erased, and that of II. L. More substituted: when it appeared ibattt.e Lvnn hotel, register contain eel n i signature of II. L. Morey when it was given by the hotel proprietor to the agent of the Democratic Com mittee who brought it her'- ; wheu ii appeared that an agent of the com mit tec procured the attendance of Sain'l Morey, who falsely swore to the existence of II. L. Morey, then l be Truth made every effort to solve the mystery and ascertain the historj and origiu of the letter. Our investi gation resulted in discovering positive proof that the letter is undoubtedly a forgery. Having made that discovery we now announce it as prominently a wo published the letter, that there may not remain a trace of bel el, wh ch unquestionably still exists, t hat it is genuine. We owe this to las. A. Garfield as an act ot justice to hint. Fatal Fire. New York, Jan. 4. A flre breke on; this morninir in the rear of 35th Madison street in a four story tene ment house. Nine lives weni lost as follows: Ellen Sheridan aged 43; Kate Sheridan, aged 14; Maggie Si cridan, age 5 years; Meas'ia Sheridan age 3 years; Jobu Walsh aged 13; Thos. Cas :sidy age 6 years; Charb s Cassidy, age 8 years and a girl named Eagle, iwo ye.at'S of age and Mrs. fchcridan whose age is unknown Several others were iujurcd among whom ar Mrs. Cassi d Marv Eagon and Mary Welch. The fire broke out in the rear of Jas. Doylcs liquor store. It started at the bottom of the stairs that furnished the only exit for the tenants in a live story building, except the fire escape attached lo the outside of the build ing, and in less ihan five minutes the fire swept through the stairway to t be roof of the building, cutting oil' t be escape of a score of people. The flumes also found vent through two of the lower stories and thus barred egress. For the fire ese ape the pauic stricken tenants made a ruh but the scuttle wa hooked and would not yield. The asstnding flames drove lite people btu'k wilhiu the rooms. G real confusion prevailed and men, women and children jumped from the windows through the llames that swept across the yard with their clothes ablaze, Winn the (reinen took the nine dead bodies already mentioned out of the ruins it was a sad sight to cee their charred remains, a scene w hieh has not ocam-d since the tenement house fire in Common si reel years ago and the burning of the Turner hall about l lie same time. A back door open's on a narrow hall way in the rear of t ie tenement house where the tire first obtained its start, numbers were at work at the foot of the stairs (bowing out pipes and for this purpose used gasoline aud die vml was by loiut meani upeat and biomin!i ignited exploded and flew iutcjhe door of the saloou. In an in stuit t.ic black smoke rolled up the stairs drawn ou by a draft caused by j an open window in the top story There was a momentary hush as th" frightened plumbers ran into the yard The men silting by the bar room stove (daiucd the door on the advanc ing gas. Al once there was a wild rush over head and a sound of the breaking ot glass; th air was filled wit b the wails of men, women and children, and cries for help. The clang of the lire bells rang out on ibe air aud sent the tidings of terror through the city. The street and nar row alliy were soon filled with fire men and police struggling to bring help to the imprisoned and burning people. But they came too late; ut lire had found vent through the doors and windows and the' unoccupied ground floor and had seized on the shutters aud wis sending its iirery tongues (iiit over the balconies, lick ing liiem up like so much tissue pa per and reaching to the floor where the lirighlened men and women were huddled together afr dd to venture on the fire escape t hat Was it self afla'ne. '1 In flames m the house was plaiuly visible through ibe uplifting i'oors then being rapidly consumed. Eight laniiliis with iu the house; two fiini'lies living on each floor. Ou l he second floor the Eagans ami Mtil deeons hail at the litsi alarm mae'e their escape through the win dows. Mrs. M iildoon, who is over eighty years old, seizing her two grand children Annie and Kate, sprung from the fire i scape, but in the fill either sprained or broke her leg Mrs. Mry Fagan and her four grown children, Margaret, i boinas, J unes and John reached the ground iu tafe ly Mr. Reagan who lived alone sav ed himself by jumping; as also did the Mi-Kane family. A baoy was thrown through the window by Chas. MeKaiiealad of fifteen; the mother was sweeping in I he yard when the fire broke nut iru she rushed, to t'e stariway but was cut off by a sedid flame of lire and realizing the danger of her children she roused the in by shouting b"forc they knew of their danger. The mother appealed to her son to throw the child to her and then jump himself. The bady, frigh't lied by the cries of those who were alarmed at tho smoke and fire i hat was quickly filling the room, with its little arms stretched out cried mamma, tuamitia;t he boy quickly measured the distance lo the ground from his (bird story perch : ud taking ihe baby up iu his arms tossed it out. It fell into the arms of the moth er who after la ing it down called on Charles to jump. She succeeded iu breaking the fall aud he escapi d un hurt. 'Ihe Cassiday and another family by the name of Iligans lived on the 4th floor; Mrs, Ellen Sheridan and her four children lived on the iifih. At the first alarm she sounht to escape with the children by ihe- stairs; then she tried f he scuttle of the roof; but both failed to ii fiord an exit and closing the door of her room she and her children were suflocated bv the smoke. All of the Cassiday family except two boys were burned to death. Officer Harrelt saved two children from the second story by the fire escape b,ui the flames drove him away with burned hands. The fire only lasted a half an hour. Tho bodies were recovered and presented a horrid spectacle. S'uno instances of remarkable bravery aud quick wit were developed during the progress of the flames. ICailroad Accident. Omaha, dan. A terrible acci dent happened this morning between ten aud (deven o'clock on the Nebras ka division of I he Chic ig, St.. Paul & Omaha road resulting in the death of six men and the wounding of one. The scene was at a deep curved cut about eight hundred i'ect lonir aud one mile south of ihe Middle Creek side track. This cut a few days ago wa blown lull of snow but had be en cleared out siiffieientlv to allow trains to go through, but they Mill bad some trouble, the north bound passenger having got stuck (here yesterd-iy. This morning a work train and a gang of twenty men. under Conductor Carnes were sent out fro mi Oakland to work at the cut and shovel the snow upon flat cars and haul it out and widen ;he passage way. At aboiu half pust ten the south bound passen ger traiu from Irvington to Omaha, came along at tho rate of twenty miles an hour and upon approaching the cut it under greaterheadway"so I as to make the run through; wheu j within about two hundred feet of the south end of the cut the engineer felt the engine strike something. Me had seen nothing as the loose snow was ll ing in clouds; but he immcdiately put on the brakes and came to a stop as soon as possible. Immediately on stopping the train a man was found caught in the foward (rucks of the toward ca r next to the engine, lie was extracted and louud to be dead; his clothing were all torn to pieces aud he was terribly mangled and bruised. Ho was laiel aside tem porarily and upon going back into the cut they found four more dead men and two wounded; one of the wounded men was just breathing his last and was taken into one of the cars where he died iu a few minutes. He had both legs cut oil md was lilerly toiu to pieces. Thi ol her wounded mau had one of his ankles so badly cut that he vyill have to have it amputated; hi head was al so badly bruised. The other lour nu n who had been killed presented a ter rible sign i ; their arms and legs wen broken and crushed and their head. and laces were bruised. The survi vor aud the man who died just allei being found were brought le O.k laud on the passenger train. Tin- urviv r was taken u his boarding house and ihe corpse of th- other wa deposited al Ihe depot where il w;f recognized by his friends. Theoihei five belies were put on tho work i rain which was run te Oakland will, ihe. u. It seems thai these seven mei. had gone into the ut to shove l On sie)w and probably thought there was room enough for then) to stand mi the side1 ami let the train pass. There were no siatials at the north cud of the cut to slop the train or indici te that there was any danger ahead. Therv was nothing on tho pilot of the engine lo show that the pilot had caught them; probably the traiu com ing around ihe curve suddenly caught them unawares and ihen the) jumped to each snle and were eittter knocked down by the cylinder or puled un der by the strong suction. Conduc tor Ilernion and the. other train men of the passenger remained at Oak laud to attend the inquest which will be held to-night. The wounded man will probably recover. Superintend ent House received a brief telegram and lelt at once for Oakland. The dead men resided at Oakland or in the near vicinit v. A Chinese Consul at Denver. Denver, Jan. 4. CWn Poo, a Chinese resident of this city, has recently received a letter from Consul Cee, at San Francisco, saying that he had made application to Ibe Chinese government to have a Chinese Consul appointed for Denver, and that he had recommended him (Poo) .fur the position, should it bp!', created. Poo is intelligent, well acquainted with tho EnglUh language ami versed in American institufiéns.'" He has been a resident of Denver lor several years; and has during ' his time lias been recognized as a representative man ol his nationality. Col. Bee also says in Ihe letter that 'he entere file of Chinese claims for damages sustained iu the riot recent ly in this citv has been forwarded to the Chinese Embassy at Washington for presentation to the American gov ernment. He also says that tne United States government will be compelled to pay ihe claims in accordance with tho pro visions of the Iide nrtional treaty, and he holds that damages can also be secured for (he death of Sang Lee, who was killed in the riot, lie cites the case of the mui'derof an American iu China several ye irsago, for whiih Ihe American government collected $250,000 from China, and thinks thm thi is a good opportunity togedlhe money back, and presumably to leach "Melicau Man" a lesson.
