David Davis Flop ? From the
Weighed Down by a Heavy
Dose of Hancocktail. Dispatches to Tils Bits
WASUIXOTON , August 9 1 a. m.
The following letter was given to
the press Sunday :
BLOOMIXGTON , I'l. ' , August 4.
My Dear Sir : The training and
habits of my lifo naturally lead me to
prefer civilians to soldiers for the great
civil trust , but aa the parties arc or
ganized voters mnat cheese between
the candidates they present or must
stand aloof , which no good cit zen
ought to do in ; x presidential election.
I have no hesitation in supporting
Hancock for the best of reisons of
my mind , because liia election will
put an end to sectional strife and
sectional parties and will revive a
patriotic sentiment nil over the land ,
where political leaders and factiono ,
for sinister ends , have sought to pre
vent. Tiiere can be no permanent
pn-sper.ty without pacification.
Great as were the achievements of
Gen. Uauccck in the war , his conduct
in peace , when in command of Louis
iana and Texas iu 1S07 , was still
greater , and com-uends him to the
confidence of the country. That was
a * , a time when passion ruled in the
public councils and military power
was cxertid to silence civil authority.
The temptation wa ? strong tc sail
with the rushing current , for an in
flamed partisan opinion was too ready
to condone excesses and to applaud
Gen. Hancock's order No. 40 , In
assuming charge of the fifth military
district , announced that the right of
trial by jury , the habeas corpus , the
liberty of the press , the freolom of
speech , the natural rights of persons ,
and the right of property , must bo
respected. The principles are the ba
sis of free government , and the pro
d-timing of them by Gen. Hancock
stands out in striking contrast with
the action of his superior who , soon
after , rebuked and drove him from the
command foi ; tittcrii g acntiraentn
worthy of a soldier. The soldier ,
clothed with extraordinary power ,
voluntarily uncovered before the civil
authority , sheathed his sword and tes
tified his fidelity to the constitution
and sot an example of obedience to
law which will pass into history as his
strongest claim to distinction. The
man who , in the midst of the excite
ment of that stormy period , was cool
enough to see his duty clearly and
was strong enough to execute it firm
ly , may well be trusted in any crisis.
His letter to Gen. Sherman , recently ,
brought to light , lifts Gon. Hancock
far above the past appreciation of his
civil ability. It marks him as one of
the wisest of his time , with a states
man's grasp of mind and the integrity
of a patriot , whom no sense of expe
diency could swerve from his honest
convictions. A long and unchecked
position of power by any party , leads
to extravagance , corruption and IOOBO
practices. After twenty yoara of
domination by tlierepublic.inachronic
public service like barnacles on the
bottom of a stranded ship. There is
no hope of reform by the leaders who
have created a aytcm of nighidtninis-
( ration and who are interested in per
petuating its evils. Nothing abort of
the sternest reform gives any promise
of effective reform , and the first stop
towards it is a change of rulers. The
government must bo got out of the
ruta in which it has too long been run.
Now blood must bo infused in the
management of public affairs before
relief can bo expected. The people
demand a change and , being in cam-
cat , are likely to be gratified.
Yours sincerely ,

It is well known that apart trom
the religious hostility common to the
East , the Armenians , who speik the
Turkish language as a second mother

duct. Things , however , have

cai ascendancy on the Bosphorus , and
for the ousting of their commercial
competitors , the Greeks , having
aroused the Constantinople Armen
ians , numbers of them are now

of the porte to briug them back to
their ancient allegiance being of avail.
The other day the porte , to curry fa
vor with these novel recusants , ap
pointed Artun Dadian Bey , one of Pie !

WASHINGTON' , August 9 , 1 a. m.
"Hamburg" Butler , who is at his
homo in South Carolina , on being
asked what action he intended to take
concerning : an abusive letter of Col.
Cash , the duellist , which had been
addressed to him , and had been sent ,
also , to the press and published , re
plied : "Col. Cash's letter to me shows
him to bo a lunatic or a blackguard ,
and , of course , I cannot notice him in
either capacity. I have done him no
harm , and if I had injured him , it is
usual among gentlemen , as a first step ,
to ask for an explanation. Instead of
this , he Ina chosen to write rae a let-
ter : by mail which does him more
harm than it does me. He ia welcome
to all the notoriety ho may acquira , in j 1
this vulgar , coarse exhibition of a
bard and malicious heart. I have not
noticed , and do not intend to notlca
anything ho may say. " The animus
of the attack msdo by Cash ou Butler
arises from Butler's having written a
very strong letter denouncing the ac
tion of Cash in brutally forcing a
duel upon the venerable Judge Shan-
' '
at the
first firo. The people generally ap
plaud Butler in his letter , as they do
the Charleston News and Courier for
the courage displayed in making war
upon the barbarous practice of duel
ling as carried on in some sections of
South Carolina.
Still a great deal more trouble is
expected to qrow out of the Cash-
Shannon difficulty , that ia , provided
Cash is not convicted and sent to
prison. Even then it is expected that
liia son will iako the father'i place and
challenge at least some of the promi
nent citizens who have denounced his
father. *

Tanner has for the past twenty-four
hours appeared br'ghtcr , livelier and
stronger and more energetic than for
dnya ; previous. lie waa very weak ,
however , and his exertion was the
result of stimulation prcduced by the
increased number of spectators.
What Tanner's movements will bo
ter ho recovers his strength nobody
appears to know. It is conjectured
that ho will practice medicine in Now
York and lecture. Tanner began the
hut twelve hours of hia forty daya
fast at 12 o'clock last night. Ho was
then resting quietly , but shortly
after midnight ho aaked for
water and drank one ounce.
Immediately after drinking hn be
gan lo vomit violently and thought it
was very foolish for his stomach to act
go when he intended to use it so well
very aeon. At 2 a. in. Dr. Wark
came in ns a special watch , much to
the delimit of Tanner. At 2:25 : the
walking of some one on the floor of
hall put the faster into a violent
temper. Ho would not be appeased
until the noisy party was put out.
At 4 o'clock ho fell asleep and ap
peared very little like a starving .

Ho awoke at 0:10 : and soaked his foot
in hot mustard water. While taking
the bath Tanner's brother-in-law , M.
M. Gardner , of Litchfield , O. , came
in. The meeting was most affecting.
Both gentlemen were much overcome
by emotion. At 7 o'clock Tanner
complained of nausea , and shortly after
he vomited. At 9 o'clock ho waa ly
ing in bed in his clothes , excepting his
coat. Ho was apparently bearing
up well as ho asked to have some Cal
ifornia grapes to-day , declaring that
ho was not afraid of them for the first
day. Ho held another interview with
hia brother-in-law and tears were ob
served rolling down his cheeks while
Hiking with Gardner who married
his younger sister. The attending
physicians wished to prevent any pro
longation of the interview , but Tan
ner said ho know hia own business
and talked on.
at . . the hotel from various sources , and
telegrams ! were being constantly re
ceived from different parts of the
country one from Minnesota , invit-
ina the faster to a barbecue. At 10
o'clock Tanner , In attempting to get
on his feet , found ho was unable to
stand , and smilingly called for
assistance to carry him to a largo
arm chair at the window , where ho
sita good-humoredly meeting all corn-
era. The hall waa thronged with people
ple of the highest class. An immense
watermelon arrived , a present from
the horticultural association of Geor
gia , in session at Atlanta , Ga. Tanner
looks well , and says he would not be
afraid , . to , fast a few days longer.
The physicians look upon
his high spirits as unnatural.
At 11 a. m. Dr. Tanner came down
from the gallery and took a seat in the
center of the hall , where on long tables
were spread all the presents ho has re-
ccivedaince ho began hia fast. These
consisted of innumerable varieties of
food , tonics , slippers , and the like.
Among the presents was a box of shin
gle nails. Ho appeared in better co i-
dition than at any period since the six
teenth day. The doctor held tightly
to a Hjilendid peach , which ho said he
said ho would bite when'tho clock
strikes 12. The hall waa crowded ,
and ; vj the final hour approached the
excitement grew intense
The doctor bad a spell of retching
shortly after 11 o'clock , and was

is still i attending Tanner , says milk
an watermelon had no more harm
than : if thn doctor had partaken of
an ordinary meal while in a normal
condition. Ho did not think ha would
belie affected by nausea , as generally be
lieved , owing to the terrible strain on
his : stomach , and was satisfied ho
would bo able to partake of nourishing
inj food right along , the same aa if ho
had not fasted. "It certainly was , "
he said , ' 'a remarkable case , and the
at ! physicians would watch the
process of recuperation with the ut
most interest. To-day , " said Dr.
Work , "the doctor has got more fat '
on his body than I , and his strength
is beyond comprehension. "
Two or three physicians will re
main on duty at Guiin'a residence
until it is apparent Dr. Tanner lus
recovered sullioiently to warrant him
in attending to business. Dr. Work
thought Tanner would bo
Uo partook of watermelon occasion
ally during the aftirnoon. Hia pulao
was 78.
A dispatch received from a physi
cian in IJul'iefonte , O. , which reads :
" "When the fast ends , nse : i friction
brush witli dry mustard ; diet upon
fresh milk with ice the size of a pea
every ten minutes : mustard drafts to
ankles. " Tanner remarked , in refer
ence to this and other advice ho had
received , that
thought ho didn't know anything ;
that ha had been through this thing
before , and knew his stomach , and
understood exactly what he was do
ing. He declared he would not be
dictated to by any one.
Dr. Ttittle , professor of anatomy in
the United States medical college in
this city , says in reference to tag-fast :
At the first examination Dr. Tanner
vas stripped down to his undcrcloth-
, and I said I was not satisfied with
hat ; I wanted to see his skin. Hia
hirt , drawers and socks were removed
and he held up his arms to show that
10 had nothing about him to support
ifo no food cnncealed. Then I toru
ip the carpet in the dresaing-room.that
> eing the only carpet in the hall. I
lave since been on the watch twice a
week ; on the first of the night several
imcsup to midnight , and Bometimes
rom midnight till morning. His bow-
chh have been entirely inactive , and
, ho fast til the system bus been princl-
) ally through the kidneys. The ox-
mlations from the akin and lungs ac
count for the waato that has taken
ilaco over and above the amount of
luids taken into the system in the
shape of watir and ico. I believe the
'ast to bo
[ don't believe a more honorable set
of physicians and gentlemen conld be
"ound anywhere than hart- been con
ducting the watch. Tl'.jre have beou
h-ea schools represented a great part
of the time eclectic , alopathic and
lomtopathic. I believe the profes
sion wi 1 bo benefited greatly in treat-
"ng chronic diseases. "
A full report of observations taken
will be published.
NE\V YORK , August 9 1 a. m.
Dr. Tanner slept quietly and ate
nearly all day long Sunday. At 1:30 :

that he waa now takirg regular ra
tions. At intervals varying trpm five
minutes to an hour cr more , the Doc

toes stewed in milk , Buss ale , beef tea
and wine. About 0 o'clock he was

Epeal Dispatch to The L'e
JERSEY CITY , N. J. , August 8 10
p m. Work at the shaft of the
Hudson river tunnel where the bodies
of twenty workmen lie buried , is almost
most entirely suspended , and it is
probable the bodies will not be recov
ered for a month to come. The new
pump put in the working shaft yester
day proves a complete failure , and
the water fiowa so rapidly in the cjf-
fer-dam that digging had to be sus
pended. Officers of the tunnel will ,
it ia expected , now alter their
plans and begin building a caisson.
This will , however , be attended with
considerable risk , bn. it appears to i be
the only way of reaching the lies
and will take about a month.
