Chicago, Oct. 21, Tho Intrigues
tho jealousies and tho traitorous knifo
thrusts of tho Inst half-century of
American statecraft aro revealed In
tho fierce light of stern criticism in
"John Sherman's Recollections of
Forty Years In tho House, Senate und
Cablnot," just published In this city.
The four thnt tho venerable senator
Would reveal secrets, long kept from

personal, worthy statesmanship, but
each is in guarded and covert language
shown In the less commendable light
ot scheming politicians. Tho criti
cism Is almost Invariably implied
rather than direct, but It stands out
clearly in tho work as a whole.
Owing to tho close association of Mr.
Sherman nnd James A. Garfield, the
criticism of the nomination of the
latter for president of tho United
States Is perhaps one of the most
striking features of tho book. The au
thor, while carefully avoiding a direct
churgo of treachery on the part of tho
ex-president, very significantly makes
it plain that Mr. Garfield was nomi
nated at a convention to which he had
gone as the trusted leader of tho Slier
inan forces. After showing by tho
publication of private letters, covering
a period of years of close political and
personal association, that Mr. Garfield
was, in reality, his politicul protege,
Mr. Sherman gives in detail the his
tory of tho national convention of
1880. Following the account of his
own struggle for tho nomination, ho
"In time, I beenmo thoroughly ad
vised of what occurred at the Chicago
convention, and had become entirely
reconciled to tho result, though fre
quently afterwards I heard iucidents
and details which occasioned mo great
pain, and which seemed to establish
the want of sincerity on tho part of
some of tho delegates, and tended to
show that for some time .before tho
meeting ofpthe convention the nomi
nation of General Garfield hud been
The sting felt by Garfield's defection
in 18S0 is inadvertently shown bv a
sentiment expressod during tho discus
sion of thu national convention of
1SU2, where tho senator remarks:
"From later, developments I became
satisfied that Harrison could not b&
elected, that Piatt and a powerful
New York influence would defeat him
if nominated. I therefore preferred
the nominntiou of n new man, such as
Willinm McKinley, but ho had com
mitted himself to Harrison, and, ac
cording to my code of honor, could not
uccept u nomination oven if tendered
Again the author reverts to tho
Chicago convention in discussing tho
character ot President Garfield. Of
his personality und eloquence he
speaks in tho highest terms. His will
power, ho says, was not up to his per
sonal magnetism. He adds that his
opinion clianged easily. Jn this
connection he bald: "When 1 proposed
to him to bo a deletrate-ut-lariro to the
Cltlcago convention, he no doubt
meant In good faith to support my
Some of tho political scheming thnt
again resulted in the defeat of tho
Ohio statesman in the national con
vention of 18SS and brought about the
nomination of ex-President Harrison
can easily bo read between tho lines
in that part of the work devoted to
this struggle. In discussing the re
suit Mr. Sherman says he became sat
isfied ono delcgato from New York
controlled tho entire delegation from
that state, and between Saturday
night, when the nomination seemed
certain to go to Sherman, and Monday
morning, when tho tide turned in
favor of Harrison, a corrupt bargain
was made in the interests of the
latter, which secured him tho support
of New York und gave him the nom
ination. Continuing tho nuthor states
in fairness to the ex-l'resulent: "Hut
it is to thu credit of General Harrison
to say that if the reputed bargain
was made it was without his consent
ut the time."
On tho ovo of another national cam
paign in which ox-President Harrison
is expected to figure prominently, Mr.
Sherman does not hesitate to state
that in 1802 he did not consider Harri
bon a btrong candidate. To his cold
and abrupt manner, he attributes his
unpopularity at that time.
At tho age of 72 years, Senator
Sherman recalls the affair over the at
tempt to remove Chester A. Arthur
from tho collectorshsn of the port of
New York with much feeling. Tho
correspondence bearing on the contro
versy never before published is given
in full, und Mr. Sherman's part us sec
retary of the treasury Is stated in de
tail. Arthur is shown up in an un
enviable light and the attitude of
Iloseoe Conliug toward the president
is caustically commented upon. The
former's nomination as vice president,
Mr. Sherman says, was the whim of
Conkling to annoy President Hayes.
In writing ubout himself Mr. hlier
man is candid to the point of self crit
icism, For instance, he states that at
the ago of 10 years he got into bad
company and was on several occasions
conscious ot being intoxicated. In re
lating the Incident which influenced
his whole life In this respect, ho says:
"On one occasion, In the full of lSUu, I
went homo very sick from drinking.
My mother received ino with much
surprise und sorrow, but neither com
plained nor scolded, and with the ut
most kindness put me to bed and
watched over and cared for me. I was
not enough stupefied to bo unconscious
of my degradation and her uffeetlon,
und then and there resolved never to
be in such a condition again."

Cr.KVi:r.ANi, Ohio. Oct. 21. The
eldest son of tho Into President, Harry
A. Garfield, whllo averse p express
ing himself In regard to Senator Sher
man's statements, finally said: "It
has been tho policy of tho faintly not
to reply to charges that uro made
ngainst my father, nnd so wo
have never given nny attention
to such as tho lloscoo Conkllug
matter and other things of that kind.
There Is in the possession of our fam
ily all tho letters, manuscripts diaries
and such matter that was left by my
futhcr, atid it Is our intention to nn
swor all charges in tho form of a bio
graphy rather than an the charges aro
made. I do know one thing. I am
and have been a warm admirer and
friend of Senator Sherman's and 1
know that my father always was. Of
course, Senator Sherman has a
perfect right to h'n own opin
ions, us has everybody else.
The nomination in 1880 was considered
by my father's friends and nearly
everybody so bo the result of a
peculiar condition of affairs. What
ever Senator Sherman mnv think
of it is his own matter, and he has a
right to his own opinions. It may bo
that wo will have something to say re
garding this matter, but I will not say
that wo will or will not. 1 could only
say that after a conference with the
family and looking over some of tho
papers, it docs not seem to mo right or
proper for anyone to make charges by
inference, but thoy should be substan
tiated by papers and documents. 1 do
not care to enter into a controversy
over it and prefer not to discuss the
matter until I have seen tho book,
which I havo ordered. 1 think what
ever reply wo may decide to make will
likely bo made In the form of n biog
raphy, but nt the samo time It is pos
sible wo may decide otherwise and
make a statement regarding it.

LEO'S STAND IMPORTANT.
High Roman Catholic Authorities Dis
cuss tho Itcllgloas Congress Mutter.
Washington, Oct 10. Among high
ecclesiastics hero it is felt that tho
pope's letter to the American arch
bishops urging non-pnrtlcipntion by
Catholics in "promiscuous religious
congresses" opens up a question of
more importance than the scctariua
school question, tho Cuhcnslcy move
ment, or the other issues which havo
been presented In recent years.
It is said that the Pope's opposition
to the religious congresses does not
affect the Catholic church alone, but
hns a betfrlng on tho entire movement
toward Chrittlnn unity, which began
in England, and has spread through
this country, tho purpose of which was
to hnrmonizo all divergent sects on
non-essentials, bringing them together
on tho one essential, tenet of Chris
tianity. The broader sentiment found
expression In the attendance of Car
dinal Gibbons at the congress of re
ligions at Chicago. At that timo Mgr.
Satolli was In Chicago, but took no
part in tho congress. Tho Cardinal's
paper and subsequent magazlno arti
cles, showing tho common grounds on
which all sects might Btand, uttracted
The language of tho pope's letter is
said to leave no room for doubt as to
the position of Home on tho holding
of congresses, or tho broader question,
of church unity, as tho following di
rect statement makes clear: "Hut
although these promiscuous conven
tions have untD this day been toler
ated with prudent silence. It would
nevertheless seem more udvisable that
Catholics should hold their conven
tions separately." It is said that this
statement Is so direct as not to be
open to misinterpretation, and doubt is
expressed as to the very liberal inter
pretation placed by Archbishop Ire
land on such a clear statement from
tho pope. It is believed also that If
there Is any misunderstanding or
broad interpretation given to tho
popo's language, ho will speedily issue
a second letter
