NEW YORK , August 4 10 p. in.
Murat H * ! toad had a vigorous letter
in The HT.ild this morning concern
ing Democratic critici-m of an inter
view with him , Dublhhed a month
ago , regarding his statemtnts then
concerning the interview betwren
Hendr-cks and S-nator McDonald.
TTilatt-aa shows t ! at the interview
actmlly took place , but some wet-ks
ea-lior tliaii he had been informed. had " il that R teleixram
was sent fr m Cincinnati by the Indi-
airndtk-ciitiou rojura'-ng Hendncks
to w thdraw. This Hend.icka deuitd

mate p rs'inbl friend of H-'iidr.cks ,
distinguished railroid a d bu-inesB
man , who went to Indianapolis and
personal J'faw Hendiicka , uxplaini g
tne situation to him , eaying that he
CDuld not ba nominated , but if he
withdrew in favor of McDomld the
latfer would certainly crrv the GJII-
vt-ntion. Uctidricks politely made no
reply. Haliiead charges that lieu-
dncKs prevented McD nald's nomin-
tion , aud says that English's nomm-i-
tijn IB a revenge on Hendruks be-
| causa of the latter'a refusal to go for
the old ticket.
The third point noted by Halstea5
is that the door of E Chan's private
residence , instead of b ing iron , is
wood , with i on lining , which ho con-
eidcred immaterial.
A reporter m > t Seatir McDonald

for th * ch trgei ?
McDnual i What particular charg

R In the n'rst pl ce , ill regard to
your interview wi h Governor Hen-
dricks b f re the convention.
McDonald I do not care to recur
to tlit point no " ; it can serve no use
ful or good purpose.
R Your name was before the In
diana delegation for the nomination
for vica president according to the
letJot ?
McDonald I was never a candi-
data for thitt office and would no acc -
c -pt it under any circumstance : .
That , I think , is a sufficient answer
If lam to remain in public life , Ipre-
fer to be U. S. Senator , just where I
am now. If any one intended to
puah my name forward it was without
ray confer ) ! , and. as I said , I could
not be induced to accept if tendered.
R You attsudtd the c" > nventon
as active iupporter of Mr. Hendrick ?
McDonald Yes , and I stood by
him from the bffginnmng till there was
no lonaer any hope.
R ' \Vhatab"Ut themeasace alleged

Police Justice Dutfy , yesterday after
noon rendered hia dccis'on in the
cise of Liwrence R Jerome Jr. ,
Edward M. Patch ell and Wm. McGib-
bon br < kers , who were chargpd with
feloniously appropriating 887,000
w irth of securities which were lost in
Wall street on July 8 h by a messen
ger boy of the firm of Brajton , Ivts
& 0o. The ex limitation room was
crowded by bankers and brother ? ,
prominent among whom was Leonard
Jerome. Justice Duffy , fifter reciting
the evidence iu the case , the finding
of the securities , by a telegraph boy
who unwillingly delivered thorn to
Jerome , thinking that he waa the
owner and the subsequent detention
of the stocks by Jt-romo Patchell and
McG.bbon. although they were aware
that Bray ton Ives & Co. , were the
owners , said : "I deem it an injustice
to public policy to hold that the
finders or recei\-era of anything lost ,
can keep it until a liberal reward is
offered. Houetty suggests a different
courae. If drunkenness were to be
considered an excuse for crime , I
wonld discharge Jerome , but the law
holds that drunkenness ig no ezcuae
for an il'egal act. The prisoners
should at once have returned the ie-
cuntips to Braytonlrves& Co. , 'and
relieved that firm of distress and
anxiety under which they suffered. "
He held the prwioner for action of the
grand ji'yt and they were released on
2.000 b-il. The decision excited
coniiderable comment in financial cir
Georala Democrats.

After an absence from active pirticipa-

General John C. Fremont was last
evening recaived by the republican
central campaign club , at the Coleman -
man house. The psrlow of the ho'el
were fairly packed with visitors , and
when Gen. Fremont arrived ho was
heartily cheered. Gon. Fremont was
ii.troducod to the audience and for
some time wan busitd in shaking
hands with about five hundred young
men , who filed past him one by one.
Gen. Fremont was then introduced
aa the pioneer of the republican party.
In rep nso the general returned
thanks and said ho was proud that ho
wrs remembered detp to the stirring
scenes that had intervened. The repub
lican party wis the party of progress ,
and though Webster aneeringly said
that this country was but diasoverated
fraRmeuta'cif a glorious republic , the
party in the present campaign rested
on its reputation. He was glad to
see that measures , not men , formed the
oeat plank in their platform and that
the disgraceful system of publishing
personal attacks on the characters of
100 candidates wonld cease. Suppose
that a wealthy man of business should
become impoverished by the lax con
duct of his agent or steward whom ho
discharged , and employed another
man in his place. The second steward
by hia talent and shrewdness brought
Older out of chaos or built up the
man's success to its original standard ,
was it likely that the man would dis
charge the second steward , who had
worked faithfully for him and replace
the first steward in his stead. The
republican party was the second
steward , it had fulfilled its promuea
and carried the country throcght a
great war , paid foreign money duo
and was even now studying cut o so
lution of the tariff question. Ho was
well pl = a rd with the nomination ot
Garfitld and Arthur and wished them
every success. Gen. Fremont at the

Dr. Tanner is still suffisrinjr , but c n-
fidcnt. Every precaution is now being -
ing taken to avoid any unnecessary
strain upon his remaining strength ,
and , although he is very feeb'e , it is
generally believed ho will complete
his fast , He has lost 32 pounds since
the commencement of his task. One
of the regular physicians on watch
with him expresses the opinion that
the fast would be accomplished , and
that , too , without any serious injury
to the fa'ter's heal'h.
During last night Dr. Tanner had
a serious vomiting turn and thre r off
a considerrblo quanti'y of bile and
mucuous , this caused him much pain ,
but ho went to sleep again without
any apparent sign of exhaustion.
Doctors generally believe ho will
succeed iu fasting thb forty days , and
pass their opinion on the condition of
his temperature , pulse and respira
tion. Tanner says he will never t y
a forty day fast again , and the general
opinion is that ho would fail if lit ) tried
it , aa his two long fasts now
itbout completed , have seriously af
fected hia constitution. The fastar
evidently appreciated the danger
attaining such a long fast and from
the manner in which he has occupied
his mind ho has been preparing for
any event.

fasting Tanner seems to take delight
in reciting instances of costly feats re
corded in Roman history. On Satur
day when the feat is ended , there will
bo a grand banquet of fruit , milk and
vegetables presided over by attend
ant physicians. His condition is with
out any change for the better. He is
still very weak and irritable. Hii
sufferings are great , although in the
early days of the fa t he did his ut
most to hide them. His will power ii
wonderful , it is hia determination
which ia carrying him safely through
the remaining days of the task. Al
though ho assumes an air of cheerful
ness it is too plain that he is in a
most pitible conditirn. Physicians
employed on the wa'ch think his en
feebled condition ia principally due
to the use of mineral waters. Said a
physician : "Thero is great causa fi r
alirm. Dr. Tanner's stomach has
probably lost its power of digesting.
On Sunday morn , I am told , the fast
er ejected something from his stomach
ach which resembled a tissue of mem
brane. If this Is true , it would show
that his stomach is undergoing a sort
of digestion caused by the effect of
carbonic acid water , which , 1 am in
f rmiid , has been taken contrary to
the advice of his medicil watchers.
This fa t is of no benefit to science ,
BO far as I can understand it never
was intended for a scientific fast , besides -
sides it has not been conducted in a
scientific manner , and it is of no par
ticular value to know that Tanner can
fust forty days , nor is there any scien
tific evidence that he fasted so long.
Belief in the fast of cnurao , in that
case.muat depend upon the confidence
of the medical profession. "
