Wahhinoto.v, Oct. 20. Nowspaer
Row has lost from tho ranks of nctivu
workers Its most distinguished figure.
For twenty-seven yenn General Henry
Vnn Ness Doynton liiia been Washing
ton correspondent of the Cincinnati Gil
lette and Commercial Gazette. Ho has
now retired, not altogether from news
pajwr work, but from tho field of dully
telegraphic journalism which linn known
him so long. General Doyntoti was ap
pointed Washington corrcsHndcnt of
Tho Gazette ns tho successor of White
law Held, anil at Mr. Iteld's request.
Ho (illicitly becamo tho most noted cor
respondent at tho capital.
For a quarter of a century ho has been
tho leader of tho corps of corresmnd
cuts, a champion of thuir rights and
privileges ami a man of iiiflueuco and
information in tho uffnirsof government
and politics inferior to none in all this
period. Only one of tho correspondents
now in active work hero, Mr. W. 13.
Shaw, of tho Itoston Transcript, has
seen longer service in this field than'
General Doynton. A number of corre
spondents bavo proved themselves more
brilliant writers; some bavo developed
greater capacity for news gathering, but
in twenty-fivo years nono lias presumed
to vlo with Doynton in leadership, in
prestige, in influence.
It is gratifying to noto that General
Doyntou's power as a man of affairs in tbq
national capital was not won with bis
pen as a weapon. It is true bo has been,
and still is, feared by those whoso ways
aro dark and devious; but all honest
men have loved him for bis innate, un
dying, all pervading senso of justice.
Tho secret of his power bus been his love
of right and truth, his defense of tho
weak against the strong, his endless help
of those who needed help. Though a
strong paitisan his lovo of party has
never blinded bis eyes. Many of his
warmest friends aro Democrats. I bavo
often known him to "run his legs off,"
ns tho saying is, to keep in oftlco boiiio
worthy Democratiu employee of tho gov
ernment who was threatened with
decapitation on account of bis politics.
OH.NT.UAn II. V. BOYNTON.
No wronged iniui or woman, no worthy
person suffering tho ills of fortune or tho
severity of changing political conditions,
has ever appealed to General Doyntoti in
vain, lie has not always been ablo to
help, for he is too practical to wasto bis
time in hopeless endeavors, and too per
ceptive to bo imposed upon by tho un
worthy. Dut his knightly eagerness to
help his fellow man when he could, his
strong sympathy and raro good senso and
frank, judicious advice have for years
caused his office to be a sort of Mecca for
pilgrims in search of a man with both
heart and influence.
General Doynton was for niunyyeiu
the representative correspondent. Ho
was tho man who stood between the cor
respondents and congress. lie wai tire
less in his efforts to secure for tho news
paper workers greater privileges and
conveniences in the performance- of their
work at the capital. During bis incum
bency of the post of chairman of the
press committee, tho press galleries in
the house and sennto were enlarged and
refurnished and made fit for the uso of
tho largo number of writers who watch
tho proceedings of congress. When
Sjwaker Keifer ordered the doors of the
press gallery of tho houst thrown open
to holders of tickets issued by him, it
was General Doynton who checkmated
Tho occasiuii was tho closing session
of tho congress. Largo crowds were in
attendance, as is always the case on Inst
days. Much important business was be
ing transacted on the floor and it was
imperative that the correspondents have
the uso of their gallery in order to report
the news to their papers and to the great
public dependent upon them. If the
speaker's orders svero carried out a crowd
of outsiders would take possession of the
gallery early in tho morning, and when
tho correspondents arrived they would
find their seats occupied by mere spec
tators. Tills emergency was met by General
Doynton with characteristic courage and
boldness. Without question tho speaker
had a legal right to make such disposi.
tion of the press gallery us ho cho.se,
tho law placing the house end of the
Capitol completely under his control.
Dut General Doynton said there was a
higher law than the statute tho law of
right and justice and he proposed that
a committee of newt-paper men take
charge of the door and refuse to admit
the holders of Mr. Sjieaker's cards. This
suggestion was adopted, and among tin
men who kept the night vigil "on tin
door" was General Doynton himself
Rally in the morning, when important
personages generals, admirals, judge
anil their wivt and daughters arrived
nt the press gallery and presented then
rards there was a scene.
General Doynton and his assistants
politely pxplnltHHl the trituration, at which
tuitiipof tho ticket holders retired with
npologles, iH'rcoivliiK tho justice of the
press position, whllo others becamo an

lered his doorkeeper to seo that his tic.
rts were honored in tho press Kiillnrj
Hut tho speaker's jKiwer was to expln
with tho life of tho congress in a fe
hours, .whllo tho power of Newspapi
How was to go on forever, and not an
tidal could lo found bold enough to i
tempt to storm tho nailery by fori
Though the speaker fumed and swore i
his mnrtilicntton, the guard of uevvsp
per men held their ground.
Not long ago a number of senators b
camo intensely angry nt tho Corp. i
correspondent!) and proposed to vei
their 111 will by passing a resolution li
terferlng with tho uso of tho press ga
lery. General Uoynton heard of tl
contemplated move, ami went at onco t
work to spiku the enemy's gun. I
twenty-four hours bo had accomplish!
bis purpose, and tho threatened raid 01
tho press gallery was indefinitely post
General Uoyntoii has done a
service to tho newspaper profession, in
only in these and many other practical
examples of his zeal and strength, but
in the example which ho has invariably
offered of frankness, fidelity and faith in
his relations with public men. How
much he has done, consciously or uucoii
sciously, in helping to raise tho tone ol
journalism at the national capital cannot
bo told, but his iutliieiico must have been
tremendous, for every younger corre
spoudeiit for two generations bus oh
served that the leader of tho corps, the
man enjoying confidential relations with
presidents, senators, cabinet officers anil
nil sorts and conditions of public men,
was ono whoso unvarying rulo waa tc
keep faith and toll tho truth.
For many years by virtue of his char
acter and position, General Doynton bus
had entree at the executive mansion ami
in all tho great exectitivoblllces here. He
Inn not only enjoyed tho conlidenco i.f
public men, but has had great infiuet.ee
ovei them. They bavo asked his advice,
have heeded his warnings. He has on
tho one side educated public men into
taking proper views of tho rights an I
functions of the press, and on the otli r
his example and counsel have inculcate 1
in newspaper workers a moro exalte 1
conception of their dignity, respousibil
ty and duties.
General Doynton retired from tho post
which ho had so long filled because the
new management of his paper wanted
more modern, more sensational treat
merit of the news of tho capital. His
parting from his employers was without
quarrel or bitterness, and no higher com
pliment could be paid this Nestor of
Newspaper Row than thatoiVered by the
malinger of tho paper. "Wo want sensa
tional news." said he, "and wo know
general, that you would not send that
if you could, and could not afford to d
it if you wanted to." Happily a career
of twenty-seven years as sentry at the
capital is not to bo marred by any
(draining after the sensational.
The lovable private character of Gen
eral Doynton lias not served to soften
his public correspondence into inanity.
On tho contrary ho has been aggressive
and searching in ills reviews of public
men, and it has come to be a haying in
Washington that "tho general is either
loved or feared by everybody." An ex
ample of Doynton's power is found in
tho case of ox-Speaker Keifer, whose
mistake in making war on the corre
spoudents led to his early retirement to
private life; and another example is
found in tho case c" Senator Harlan of
General Doynton having published an
article about some Cherokee Indi'iu
frauds, Senator Harlan, who had l)t.t.j
secretary of tho interior before going . I
the senate, toolc the matter us a persona '
insult to himself, and rose in ids lilac
in the senate and made a bitter attach
upon Doynton, charging him with fal-e
hood, blackmailing and ninny other of
fenses. Correspondence and controvert
followed, und Doynton, mi placid, so
generous, so just in all tiio private rein
tionsof life, became a veiitable blood
hound on Harlan's trail. The articles
which bo published, tho exposures whic.i
he made, led to Harlan's defeat for re
election and to his permanent retirement.
Doyntou's controversy with General
Sherman became unnecessarily bittel
through a misconception on the latterV
part of Doyntou's motives. When Gen
ernl Sherman's memoirs appeared Dou
ton criticized tho author's hiclc of iiccu
racy, and with tho industry for whirl,
he is noted dug out of the oflicinl rer
oiil s a surprising number of facts not in
harmony with Sherman's statement-.
General Sherman's friends looked tip-in
this as an attack on Old Tecuniseh
character and career, and a spirited con
trovers) followed, in which Geneia
Doynton showed his ability to take can
of himself. This controversy really gn-v
out of Doyntou's ardent attachment t
the Army of tho Cumberland, in which
ho had served, and his devotion to the
memory of General Thomas,
General Doynton is only fifty-six yea is
old. He is a native of Massachusetts,
tho son of a preacher, and was graduated
from the Kentucky Military institute.
He was a volunteer in tho civil war,
was elected major of tho Thirty-fifth
Ohio infantry, was promoted to be lieu
tenant colonel, commanded the regiment
during the Tetiue.s.seo campaigns, and
for gallant conduct atChicknmauga and
Missionary itidgo was broveted briga
dier. At Missionary ltidge lie fell, badly
wounded, while leading his regiment up
that famous height. He was regarded
by his men as among the bravest of th
biHve. General Doynton was one of the
w mmi.s.sioiiers to locate and establish
the new ('hlckainaugu park, and to him
the credit for this beautiful idea and
promising crealioi. '.. '..t. The poit

most frequently in demand. If, how
ever, tho trunk is packed merely to move
clothing fioin one place to another,
where the trunk will bo unpacked, then
the plan should call for a folding of all
garments in ns largo folds as tho size ol
the trunk cdiuits of. As each layer it
made all tho spaces at the sides and ends
nud in tho isiruers should bo filled with
small articles. It Is a bad plan to put in
n lot of garments out) on top of tho othei
ami then when tho pile has reached tho
top of the trunk try to fill in these va-1
cant places. Desides mussing things up
you will lose valuable space by such a ' ,
method. The proper way is to build
layer on top of layer, making .each one '
complete as you go along. The result
will bo that you can get a great deal
more in a trunk, nnd the compactness of i
packing prevents the clothing from get
ting creased and mussed. It is said that
no woman ever thoroughly mastered tho
art of trunk packing.

of salt, is lield to tho eyo bent over to

If you are addressing ti business letter, ,
send it to Mr. John .Smith or to Messrs. '
John Smith & t'o. If tho letter bo a so
cial communication, address it to John
Smith, Iv-q. Tho Kuglish rulo is to ad- '
dress tradesmen as "mister" and gentle- i
men and professional men as "esquire."
Dut this rule won't work for obvious rea- j
sons in America. Address a letter to
"General Smith" or to "Dr. Smith," but
never under any circumstances to "Mrs. ,
General Smith" or "Mrs. Dr. Smith." If .
tucli an identification bo essential to a
correct delivery, uso an extra lino and
address to "Mrs. Smith, in tho care of I
General Smith." If tho letter bo to n
widow and her identity bo obscure wifli-
out the title of her husband, then tho
obsolete form might bo used of "Mrs. (
Mary Smith, widow of General John
Smith." Dut such is not an imaginable j
case. There is no uso of putting "for"
or "to" before tho nnino of a person ad- J
dressed. In addressing a note to un-
married sisters the grammatical rulo is
to write, when tho given names aro not ,
mentioned, "The Miss Smiths," nnd
when tho names ate mentioned "Tho
Misi-cs Mary and Sarah Smith." Dut
"Tho Misses Smith" lias been adopted by i
general consent and will do. To a man
to whom the title of honorable is duo tho
article siioiiid lie used aim no riiouiu do
nddiessedas "The Hon. John Smith.'

tenant governor of Massachusetts is en

tion. Wo accord it, however, very liber
ally, and maybe wo aro right. "His
Excellency" is only given by law to the
governor of Massachusetts. Tho presi
dent of tho United States should be ad
dressed in so many words, ami tho begin
ning of a letter to him should be simply
"Mr. President," or "To the President of
the United States. Sir."
