Senator John J. Ingslls was the prin
cipal attraction at the 0. A. R, re
union heie yesterday. Among other
things he said:
"It has been reported to me that
there were many members of .the
Grand Army who voted to bring about
the present condition of affairs "and
place the party in power which has
placed Hoke Smith in a position to cut
off the 1,100 aoldiers already dropped
from the pension rolls in Kansas.
He then spoke of politics being
tarred from these reunions, and said
It meant that the organization should
.not be used for securing any partisan
advantage. He said that no comrade
need renounce his political convic
tions, however, but had a right to be
long to whatever party he chose.
"That is what that war was fought
for," he continued, "and I stand here
a I stand everywhere, aa I have stood
always, as I expect to stand always
In the future, on this platform and on
every platform as a gepublioan."
in referring to tb policy of the
present administration, be said: "I

Sretend to aay that it desires a restore

and dissolution of the union; I

ought to accomplish, but I do affirm
that to-day as much as at any time in
the past it continues to affirm that
God alone knows which was right in
that controversy.' I say to you that
unlets there was some right in that
controversy, then the war in which
you were engaged was nothing more
than a acrsp in a disreputable house

Corbett for the pugilistic champion

THE SPECTRAL BOAT.
Th! story is true so far as the nar

By the narrator I mean the pilot.
His nam is Kinney, pilot of the Bat

tbe vlft, elegant steamer (Bixby
master. Elton purser)" plying be
tween St Louis and New Orleans,
I went aboard the Baton Rouge at
Si Loula Bixby introduced mo to
Kinney. In Kinney I found a short
thick-bodied man with half gray and
blue eyes, tawny oolored mustache.
goatee, full choeka ruddy with
health, and the natural color of one
whose hair was mixed red and brown.
Kinney stood watch six hour off

spasmodic? violence and rang the en

with such rapidity that the mechanic
below wanted, by the Infernal to
know what he meant Presently we
rounded the bend.
"See that corner of the island
there?" asked Kinney.
"There's where the bones of
old Alonzo Child are laid."

into postessloa of an old chap that
owned a plantation Juit 'round Bayou

boiler and engine, and used it for
boiling sugar and pressing tana
Colonel Hubbard burned the sugar
bouse as he passed by with his de
tachment of soldlera but the boiler
and engine was saved ic a somewhat
disturbed condition. The old fellow'
name' was De Soto.
"De Soto put his old engine, and
boiler on the hull of the Alonzo
Chllda and she was made to travel
up and down, Inside the Confederate
line of course. She went between
Port Hudson and Vicksburg. At
that time I was a vub pilot on ahicr
steamer, and I used to see her. One
day I heard she exploded or snagged,
and everybody on board was lost
The circumstances of the disaster no
one ever knew. A few bloated bodies
and some charred pieces of the old
craft's timbers floating down the river
indicated the extent of the -horror.
"Two years ago I was standing
watching alone in the pilot house,
The river was up and we were . push
ing the gray, muddy waters aside
under a full head of steam. I had
just pulled the wheel over to make
the bend, when I saw a steamer head

me that she came out of tho bank
rather than up the river, and I no

strange craft to me. Well. I blowed

tbe west shore. Giving her the ad
vantage of the backwater, I watched
her, and presently I saw ' from her
whistle two escapes . of steam. By
that I saw that she had blown twice.

gettin' so near that the danger of a

rang the bell to back hard. In the

neither moved the wheel nor stirred a

Kinney, " I cried, 'that is not the

For a second he towered, like a

then, throwing his arms about his

Already the glass windows of the
