WASHINGTON , 1 > 7 O. , April 13.
Shiphord states ho had an interview
with Garfield , brought about by an au Na
tograph letter from Grant. The first Naft
interview witness had with Grant was ftwl
in September , 1881. The mam point wl
made by Grant at this interview was her
that when a citizen of ono country gf
had a just claim against a foreign
government and was unable to enforce
it , ho had the right to demand of hia Na
government to do so , and it was the NaFi
government's duty to do it. Fi
Witness declined to state in an interview - bu
view with a New York reporter what buOj
he meant by the statement that bu
Blaine would not dare avow what rea the
sons ho had for not referring the thHi
Shiphord case to the attorney general ,
and added that though ho knew the Hi
reasons why Blaine attacked him BO HiAi
savagely , the time had not arrived for Ai
making them public. Shipherd oQ
eaid Blaine at an interview in tic
November 3d told him lota of da
ways to read diplomatic correspond tu
ence , among which were between the ro
lines and on the margins , instancing
the case of the British admiral who
received most careful instructions not Na
to provoke a fight , with a marginal
note with the Duke of York ; "This ex
is all right , but damn them , an
give them helland the next 000
day fought an important battlo. Wit
ness told this to Ilurlbut , the editor
of the New York World subsequently ,
who waa censuring Blaine for desert
ing Ilurlbut , said Blaine wrote n
margin over despatches to Hurlburt ,
"Go it , Stove. " The odU
tor had the letter anil
said : "Woll , then , I have got Blaine
on his own diplomacy , " Witness be
lieved that when Blaine found he
could not romnin in the cabinet ho
discarded , Ilurlbut. and to nave hinv
self got on record his letter of December -
comber 3d. Before that letter wit
ness had been led to believe in Blaino's

C pt. Howgato , confined in default o
$ 10,000 bail for the embezzlement o :
$200,000 from the government , es
caped this afternoon from a bailiff.
During the winter Howgato ha boon
allowed to go homo several times in
charge of an oilicer of the court. To
day his daughter , just homo from
Vassar , made application to Judge
Wiley to lot her father como homo
and stay all night. The judtro gave
n permit for a few hours one
the prisoner wont in a carriage -
riago from the jail to his
residence on Thirteen street in charge
of Court Officer Dewing. The officer
sat in the room with him for an hour
and allowed him to take a bath. Ho
then suggested it was time to go
Howgato suggested they wait and
have dinner and busied himself meanwhile -
while looking for some papers and
wont into an adjoining room , whore
the officer lost sight of Him for a mo <
mont. As ho did not-return , the
officer opened the door and saw
the daughter. Ho asked for
her I father. She said ho had
stopped out for a moment and looked
anxiously at the clock. The officer
rushed tor the door but could BOO no
signs of the prisoner and no carriage
in sight. The house waa searched and
general alarm sounded. The police
exorcised all vigilance but no clue has
yet been found. It is thought to bo
a preconcerted plan and that arrange
ments had boon made to spirit him
out of the city. Shellabargor , Wil
son and Judge Cuppoy , his counsel ,
are thought to know nothing
about it , as an argument ta release the
attachment of $100,000 on hia prop
erty was to bo made Tuesday , and hii
flight will materially damage hia case. .
It is thought certain officials whose
connection with Howgato has boon
questioned know something of the
plan , . It is said his embezzlements
could not have been effected without
the aid of some officers of high
rank , who would rather asiist
escape than risk a fall trial of the
prisoner. District Attorney' Corkbill
cape'andays hojgucaaeait i , ali right ,
and intimates he will be found. The
above facts are furnished by the of
ficial ) in whose custody Howgato was ,
and who is in a great state of trepida
tion for the consequence.
Nellie Burrill , Howgate's acknowl
edged mistress , is not to bo found at
her lodgings to-night.

perfectly wholesome and plentiful.
The same same stratum extends

will proceed to sink wells in that territory

Special Correspondence of Tin bn.
LINCOLN , April 13. The supreme
topic . of conversation hereabouts i
the legislature toujours the logisla
turol Every other man you moo
will ask you with an air of deep in
tcrost how it is to bn called together
i asked a state ofiiclal last evening
whether ho considered that the bulk
of the sentiment was in favor of an
extra session.
"Why there are duly two men in
the republican party in tha state who
oppose it , " ho replied.
"Who are the ? " I inquired.
"Nanco and Valentino , " was the
rcspon&o. "Thoy cannot recognize
any good rosblts that will accrue
from amooting of thoJloRislaturo. They
have both expressed their opinions
that there is no urgent need for such
a mooting , and you may wager your
last ; nickel that they would both bo
overjoyed if they could ovor-rido pub
lie .sentiment on the subject.1'
"Why BO ? "
"Because they both want to go be
fore the convention as candidates at
largo. : Nanco will toll you that ho
has flung ambition away , and Is not a
candidate for anything ; that ho has
ranked a congressman for tha last four
years , and would not take the position
for a gift. But that is all taffy. "
"Woll , what ails Valentine ? "
"Ho is afraid that ho won't got a
district made to suit him. If they cut
out a district in north Nebraska that
Valentino could carry for a nomina
tion , it would probably result in the
election of a democratic congress' '
man. " i P
"Do you think that Nanco has
really : yet made up hia mind to con
vene the legislature ? "
"I think BO ; but it is only because
there are a number of other matters
requiring attention , in which heavy
pressure has been brought to boar y
upon him. You would bo surprised
see a call with the reapportionment
paitleft out , wouldn't youl"
"t there any possibility of that ? "
"No , I don't think there is ; but if
the intelligent compositor could only t
make an irremediable blunder in thai
direction , I am satisfied that it would
give infinite satisfaction to the exccu- 3b
tive. ' " b
In addition to the various subjects
for legislation already considered in
those letters , it is probable that there K
will bo ono or two more to bo added !
the call. Nebraska City wants the
portion of the statutes bearing upon
refunding altered , SOBS to allow her to
lesson the burden of her present in
debtedness , while Lincoln desires a fr
change in the law relating to cities of ojF
the second class. F
The closing of the saloons in this re
city at 10 o'clock at night is a good reNi
3vo. A largo portion of the damage Ni
and deviltry instigated by drinking ,
takes place after that hour. Tha sa

The Bamuols' Caatlo ,
Much interest ia attached to the
early homo of the James boys , in Clay
county , and the now historic.castle in
which their mother resides. Last sum
mer a correspondent of ThoKansas
City' Journal visited the caatloj and '
described it and its inmates as fol 4
lows :
Accepting the invitation as a safe
guard against any danger , even though-
the ; boys were at homo , I wont out
the next day. The road leading to
the James * citadel , for it may almost
bo called that , it is * up and down hill
through a rather rugged country , with
scattered woods on cither side , with
hero and there an opening for n corn
Cold and a hemp patch. The country
is well settled , and farm houses are
almost in hallooing distance all the
way to , . Mr. Samuels' . The house
stands near the road in a well-wooded
pasture , and just around it there in
considerable shrubbery , and a row of
lilao bushes to the loft of the building.Dt
is a modest throe-room habitationbuilt
of logs , but about it and all over the
farm there is a look of thrift , good
management and comfort. Entering ,
I was at once recognized by Mrs.
Samuels , who busied herself at once
to extend cordial hospitality. My
visit profited nothing beyond seeing
the home of the James boys. Of
course we got to talking of a visit paid ,
hegyon a cold January night by Pin-
karton'a detectives , when no lost her
right hand. Speaking'of detectives ,
ahe fairly spat out venom , whenever
word detective was used , and her ac
count of the dirofuljvisit , when ahe was
wounded , and hoi * boy , Andrew , four
yean old , was killed , was bitter with
denunciation of the cowards who , y
made a night attack. She became ex
cited , and recited the horrors of the
night with vehemence , and she again
acted her part in the tragedy. She
led your { correspondent back into kit
chen or living room in the rear of the
houao , into which the ball was thrown.
"It waa thrown through the window , "
pointing to the ono next to the roar
wall , and next to the fire-place , "Wo
were all sitting in here , " continued
she . , "and when the ball came crash ;
through the window wo did not begin
tc realize what was the matter. I
first noticed the burning ball on the
floor. Fearing that it would sot the
house on fire , I rushed toward it , and
the doctor at the same time , and it
was ' kicked into the fire place. Then '
followed a terrible explosion , My
boy ( Arthur waa killed and I "
Hero the old i lady's feelings over
come her at the recollections of that
memorable night , but not f6r long , for
she broke out in fiery invective against
the cowards who did it. "
"Thoy were after Frank and Jesse , "
she added , but they weren't hero and
hadn't ' boon. "
Recovering soon , she busied her
self about setting dinner , and soon I
down to an old fashioned , bounte
ous repast , rich in everything that a
well conducted farm can givo. Wo
talked as wo ate , and mostly about
"tho boys , " but nothing beyond the
declaration of their innocence , often
repeated , could bo got out of the
mother of the outlaws.
