(jKX. Pan. Siieuidan's account in
the Ninth American Iteview, of the
last struggle by Lee and his army
about Richmond, is wonderfully inter
esting, The pater establishes Little
Phil's" reputation as a very pleasant,
entertaining writer of more than
ordinary ability. He starts out
by saying, "I feel it my duty
to give to history the rollow-
in2 facts." He then tells tlie story of
the struggle of General Lee to escape
from the toils which General Grant had
thrown around him and his army, as he,
(Gen. Sheridan), iemembers and saw
it from the saddle, and at the front;
and his story is a fascinating one, told
in aa off hand, easy style,. which can
not help but please the reader.
Qe objection urged against the
IIkhal.'D's suggestion of diverting the
water course on Washington avenue by
the way of Seventh street to the sewer
on Chicago a venue, ai Elchuy's lumber
aril is. that the water from the norlh
idc of town must have a way to escape
and that the present water course
through block 23, furnishes the o;:ly
escipe for all this surface water. A
moment's thought, however, will con
vince anyone that tbls is no objection;
tins water all enipes into the main sew
er anyway, aud must always bo taken
care of through the gutters on the north
aud south sfcets. There is no qucs-
on but the plan of taking this water
either by tlie way of Seventh 'or Sixth
rcets. into the main water course, is
the proper one, for the reason that it
can be done with less expense aud
when once accomplished, onr city will
be iii no danger from disastrous fresh
els. As it is all the property in block
2?, the mot valuable in the city, is in
constant danger of total destruction
Once let this sewer become clogged up
during a Hood like the owe day before
yej-tenlay. and nothing can save the
As the time approaches for the meet
ing of tlie republican state convention
becomes more clearly outlined, there
is but Utile doubt that the present state
officers, with the exception of Judge
Day, will be renominated. The chances
are that Judge Day will bo' beaten, and
that either Judge McDid or Judge
Reed will be the candidate for the su
preme bench. T:e issue in tlie con
vention on the temperance question
will be as between a simple declaration
in favor of re-subuiissiou of the prohib
itory amendment and a declaration in
favor of immediate statutory prohibi
tion, pending the rcadoption of thecon
stilii'tonal amendment. TheC0,000 ma
jority lat June in favor of prohibition
will be urged a n instruction to the
party, ami it is probable that the con
vention will declare in favor of prohi
bition. Sioux City Journal.
DEATH OF MRS. MARQUETT.
The community was shocked yester
day by the intelligence of the deatn ot
Mrs. T. M. Marquett, although he had
long beeu known thit her demise was
only a question of time. She hart been
a sufferer from consumption for some
years, and bors her painful illness with
the utmost fortude. To the stricken
husband and orphaned children will
flow the warmest sympathy of an ex
tended circle of friends.
ller bedside was surrounded by min-.
istering near ones, and her last hours
soothed by all that affection could sug
gest. Her sister, Mrs. Cutler, of Cass
county, had been with her i r several
davs. The funeral will take place from
tlie residence, 1744 P street, atlOoclock
tomorrow morning. State Journal.
Our people will be grieved and shock
ed at the fo-egoing announcemont of
the death of Mrs. T. M. Marquette,
Mr. and Mrs. Marxuclte were married
in this city in 1861, both being residents
of Plattsmouth aud here through the
early years of their wedded life, they
resided lighting life's battles amid the
privations and hardships of early pio
neer life. A few years ago Mr. Mar
quctt's professional engagements com
pelled his removal to Lincoln where
be has since resided. Mrs Marquett's
for some years, has been in failing
health, having contracted the dread
malady consumption. The many friends
of Mr. and Mrs. Marqtictt in Platts
mouth will deeply sympathise with the
bereaved family in their distress.
THE SAME OLD ROOSTER.
Stalwart Samuel Powerful and
Athletic Condition of Tilden.
Omaha, Neb., June 15. Dr. Geo. L.
Miller, editor of the Herald (Dem.) of
this city, sends the following from
New York to his paper here. Coming
as it does immediately upon the heels
of Hon. Henri Watterson's remarka
ble letter on the same subject, it de
mands universal attention, and is con
sequently given to the Associated
New York, June 15.--When Mr. Til
den invited Henry Watterson to visit
him at Gramercy PaiK, I happened to
be snipe shooting on the Hudson, oth
erwise I should have goiiealong with
Vatter8on to see the grand -old age.
As it was, when I got back to New
York with a bag full of game, I found
the following telegram awaiting me:
I inte pret the cipher, so that Republi
can vo ers as well as Democratic, may
understood: "Gramercy Park, 11 a.
m. Henry is here. Can do nothing
till you come. 1 lurry up." I started
at once for Gramercy Park paying a
hackman S3 to drive me there. It was
6 o'clock in the evening when I reached
there. Mr. Tilden heard the rumble
of wheels, and ran down tlie front
walk to meet me. Not waiting to
open the gate, ho vaulted oyer a seven
foot iron fence aud clasped mo warmly
to hi3 bosom as I al'ghted from the
hack. I was delighted to Cnd my old
friend in as vigorous health as when he
and I used to sit together and talk
politics in the dear old days of '76 (1S7G).
Nay, he is looking even fresher ana
stronger than then. His left eye fell
out several month3 ago, and the glass
one he has substituted for the missing
orb gives his countenance a peculiarly
juvenilo appearance. Then again, Mr.
Tilden is fuller and stouter than tie
wa3. He has grown several inches in
height, and a generous diet has swelled
his phi?iq..:e into goodly proportions.
His hair, too I must not forget mat.
It used to be white; now it is as black
as a raven's plumage. His voice is
full and robust, and as he greeted me
be broke into such a hearty laugh that
the horses hitched to the hack took
flight and came very near run
ning away. "Here, give me a
hold on that trunk'" said Mr.
Tilden ; "I do not allow a porter on my
place." And with these words he
swung my three imudrcd pound sole
leather gracefully up -u. his brawny
shoulders and started with it toward
the house. I could hardly contain my
joy at beholding my beloved leader i
such splc.-id condition. Watterson
met us at the door complaining of a
lame back. He had bowled tenpins
with Mr. Tilden till a late hour the
previous night and was completely used
up. "I rolled small balls," said Wat"
terson, '-and he rolled big ones.' Today
I am as sore as a felon, while tie is
soiwid and spry as a cat. The herculean
physique of the man is marvellous."
Mr. Tildeu showed us over his house.
It is seven stories high, and before I
reached the atfic I was so blown jind
weak in the knees that Mr. Tildeu had
to take hold of my arm and boost me
along. Mr. Watterson stopped on the
fourth floor to recuperate on a bottle of
brandy the grand old statesmen had
thoughtfully left there by way of re
freshment. As we descended, Mr. Tilden--playfully
slid down the balustrade
a favorite pastime of his, as he in
formed me. We then entered .'the li
brary, which is . filli d with bookcases
stored with the choicest literature.
The walls were adorned with portraits
cf Mr. Tildeh's ancestors, and what
"magnificent looking men they were,
too! Never before had I seen such
splendid specimens of healthful man
hood. Mr. Tilden told us about them,
and I was surpiised to learn that none
of them had died before reaching the
mature age of 15 years. I could not
help noting the marked resemblance
Mr. Tilden boro his grand old ances
tors. Supper being announced, we
were 'shown into a spacious refectory.
Mr. Watterson complained of a weak
stomach, and contented himself with
some fruit. I partook heartily of mut
ton chops and griddie cakes. Mr. Til-
den's appetite astonished nte. IJy way
of whetting it, he first bit a tonpenny
nail in two. "Sir,,' said I, u you have
remarkable teeth," He laughingly
replied, "Po6r teeth, George, are the
footprints of time. I shall not
forget that epigram to ray dying day.
He then partook of three eggs in a
glass ot sherry, after which followed in
rapid succession a porter-houso steak,
tour mutton chops, a pork tenderloin,
two plates of cucumbers, a dish of lyo
naise potatoes, aud half a dozen batter
cakes, the whole washed down with a
glass of fine old three-star brandy.
Then I thought I understood how the
glorious sample of manhood before me
came by his sturdy strength -nd viva
cious spirits. We adjourned to the
gymnasium a-spot Mr. Tilden regards
almost as tenderly as h& does his be
loved library. After dallying with a
100-pound dumb-bell much as I would
toy with a bean bag, our sprightly host
put on the boxing-gloves with Watter-
son. He had the haughty Kmtuckian
floored in two minutes. He iuvitcd inc
to a bout, but I respectfully d- lined.
The muscle, and agility, and bottom of
tlie man amazed mr, Then, in a sport
ive mood, he exhibited his prowess on
the horizontal bars, the vaulting hor,
and the trapeze. 1 have patronized
every circus that has visited Omaha
during tho last twenty years and I have
never seen any prolessional 44kin the
cat" as easily and gracefully a- Mr.
Tilden did on his trapeze. Aud Wat
terson and I stood by transfixed with
wonderment. '-Great heavens!-' quoth
I, "what an athlete is here!" Mr. Wat
terson was overcome bythe emotions of
awe that surged through his bosom; he
was too full for utterance. At 1 1 o'clock
wc were again in the library. Wc elid
not light the gas; we sat in tho gloam
ing and talked literature, and art, and
science, and then by the dim light of
the coal lire in the grate Mr. Tilden read
to us from Milton's "Paradise Lost" in
rich, full, clear atones. 1 would like to
tell you, cherished., readers of the
Herald, all he said about literature, and
art, and science, but ho asked Wuttcr
aud inc not to give the snap away until
the campaign got further along, and I
cannot overlook the fact that the opin
ions of every man are his own aud his
house is sacred. I agree, however, with
Mr. Watterson that no power on earth
could induce Mr. Tildea to accept the
Geouue L. Milt,kk, M. D.
We notice our brethren of the elemo
cratic piess are beseeching the Ohio
bourbons now in session at Columbus
to eleclare through their platform, in
"ringing tones," a set of principles
which will be the key note for the Na
tional Democratic convention, and
which will lead their party to victory
at tho polls m the coming 6tato elcctior.
Among these appeals wc notice that of
our neighbor of the Omaha Herald who
speaks in the following intrepid man
ner: The tariff it is conceded, will be the
coming issue. The people of Ohio can
aot be so blind and so ignorant of their
material interests as to endorse the
wholesale pillage which has been per
fected to a system and commitccl on
them and tho whole country these
many years under the mack of protec
tion. The truth need3 but to be squarely
and precisely laid before the voters to
obtain a righteous verdict. That the
elemocratic convention will do this, and
do it unepjaliSedly, we have an abiding
We take with mahy grains of allow
ance the announcement by the Omaha
Herald, as its belief, that the tariff is
going to be the overshadowing issue,
especially i Ohio. The Herald does
not say judi how the people of Ohio
have been, pillaged by the "perfected
system," yet the editor oi
intimates that if Ohio's people aro in
telligent, they are aware of the fac;
that they have been pillaged and robbed
by protection. Had the Editor of the
Omaha Herald paid close attention to
the voice of the proelucer of the Buck
eye State, upon the passage of the tariff
act by the last congress, which reduced
protection upon wool, he would have
received a very intelligent pointer as to
the views of that individual upon this
question. About the loudest kicking
done by the people of any section of
the Union was done by that people
because the tariff was reduced upou
wool, one of Ohio's products.
The peoj lo of Ohio are not ignorant
and yet iht y. to judge by the expres
sion ot their people i-.pcii the passage of
that; act, know nothing about this
'wholesale pillage" the e ditor of the
Herald sneaks about.
We are inclined to believe the editor
of the Om.-iha Herald is well aware of
the fact that his party expect to win in
Ohio,if they win at all, upon the issue
of free whisky; the republican party of
that state have taken bold grounds up
on that question, m favor of its rcgula
lation by the state, in the shape of a
tax, and the Ohio democracy if they re
tain the whisky vote, without which
they canuot hope to win, have got to
either dodge and trim or take the other
side of that question.
About the last thing the Omaha
Ileraid, and that portion of the demo
cratic press which understands the true
situation in Ohio, want to sec is a
square toed, outspoken declaration by
the Ohio democracy in opposition to
the platform of plinciplcs adopted by
the Ohio republicans.
