owing to hh failure to win the
suniKirt of the American people In

al o adds that Assistant Secretary
Puller will resign as soon as the business of

that his relations with llayaid's private sec-

enthusiastically rccelxod anil accorded the
pilvllegoof Hie lloor , and. In iesonso | toio-
poatod calls , he ald ns a Mlsslsslpplan at last
no could addiess the convention. Ho ad-
veiled to the great Importance ot the duties
of congressmen and the danger now always
to bo apprehended that the position would he
ptostltutcd to personal ends. Touching the
question of Cleveland's appointments , Davis
said the president was entlicly now to na
tional politics , therefore could not ho expected
to escape occasional mistakes. In regard to
the negro vote , Davis .said .soiithein demo
crats should be congratulated upon having
educated their slaves to a grade of clvlll/a-
tion so high that icpubllcans thought them lit
to exercise the right of citizenship. Tlio
charge that tlm people of the south abused
their stieiistb to opiiioss the blacks ho de
nounced as calumnious ; ho trusted a Missis-
Rtpplan would never stoop so low as to strike
down a voter or take an untalr advantage of

107 bushels of corn from Joseph K. Hoover ,
a piomiiiPiit farmer of this county. The
theft is alleged to have been committed
March 1,1&5 , and why Mr. Hoover allowed
tlio mailer to rest for over a year and a half Is
a mystery. This inoinlngMr. Hoover's at

prosecution by inducing Lentto pay for the

"Well , you know Diaz , the Incumbent

Ho fought gallantly and contested every
inch to Pueblo , where hu was dually de
feated , Still , when wo think of the

ous and absurd , There are no natural

"What sort of a force could President

"Ho could probably gather 300,000men :
certainly no moro than lliat. It would
IIP impossible to concentrate thesp , bo-
c.inso they have so largo a country to
jiroloct such a gioat area to cover. "
"Would they do any lighting ! "
"Ohcs. , . This idea about tlio lack ol
courage ami endurance in Mexican sol
diers is wrong. They haven't the vim
about them that the United States troops
would have , but they would make a vor.y
good showing , I assure you. They are
active , ami can make longtsr , quicker
marches , on less rations , than any other
soldiers in the world. "
"Have they good ofllcerst"
"Din ? was educated in military science
in Prussia , aud ho is a magnificent sol-
dicr tliorc Is no discount on that. And
ho Is surrounded by n coterie of wise and
brilliant olliccrs , all of thorn graduates

world , and all splendid lighters. "
"And llipy arc nol so wise , then , that
they will perfectly appreciate the liopi > -
Ics.snoss of a war witli this country , nud
that Dia/ will bank down ! ; " '
"Of course they all know prociscl.y
how a war with the United States would
result. Hut they a No know that if tliuy
' down' will their
'back they at once loscfe
hold upon tlio ppoplo and upon tlio goV'

tremely jealous of their laws add tholr
institutions , and if Dia.should fail ly

L'iplu'involvcd in this case , lip would soon
Hud himself politically ruined. If he
should accede to tlio demands ol Secre
tary Bayard that ( Jutting be released , lie
would bo deposed , porhapi assassinated.
Thcro would bo involution instantly ,
Under those circumstances , of course , he
will not heed Secretary Bayard's de
mands. That may , I think , bo depended
upon "
"What are the relations between
Americans anil Moxicaus in Mexico' "
"I never in my life saw anything which
oven tended to any but the most kinill.y
feelings for all classes of Americans on
the part of the Mexicans. As to the fron
tier and the Hio ( ! raudi > boundarlosthori ;
is always a class ol men there making
trouble. On the Texas side there are : i
lot of American- ; prepared at all times to
commit any depredations on Mexican
soil within their power. It was i < o in my
day down in that part of the world , and
it's so now. "
"It has been said that when you passed
down with your GOO or 700 men you lost a
good many of thorn at the hands of the
Moxicaus. Is that so ? "
"Vi-s. that's so , but I found in every
case that the gmcn were aggressors
against the Mexicans' domestic happi
ness , and their death naturally fol
lowed. "
"Then may it bo judged from whatybu
say that if the administration's backbone
holds out there will be war ? " - i
"Now , don't try to catch nic oh anj
complicated questions. Polk had back'
bone at the time of the other Mexican
war , but if our armies had met with anj
reverses the war would have ended right
there. "
AN OVERRATED MAN.
Samuel J. Tilclcti AVIthnut Any Koal
Decision of Character.
Gatli in Cincinnati Enquirer : One
evening 1 met a man named Conovornii
Florida senator from the north , whc
began to talk about Tildou haying car
ricd Florida , and said ho know it. 1 saw
the situation in a few minutes , and , desiring -
siring to have no more lighting in the
country , I wont down to Tildcn's house
the following morning to inform him
about Conover's situation , Conovcr , i
suppose , wanted the state patronage ol
Floridasaved for himself aud friends ,
but was willing to present the electoral
vote of tho'state to the democrats. The
same position was taken by John J. Pat
terson of South Carolina , who saw an in
dictment hanging oypr his head unless
ho would work well i n the democratic
harness , carpetbagger as he had boon.
When I arrived at Mr. Tildcn's house-1
sent my name to him. Ho came out and
was immediately pestered by some bores
nf women , who h.i.d apparently come to
bespeak his attention to the claims ol
oflicc for their km.
Tildcn looked haggard , limp , and with
out any decision ot character. So fat
from seeming' to bo a cheerful , happy
person , who had como nearer to the pres
idency than any man since Buchanan , he
could have been , figuratively speaking ,
put in a spit-ball and turowif against the
wall to stick there. Ho bore the gniso , 61
ono who had nclthor slept , nor eaten ,
nor been philosophic , Having waited as
long as I thought lit , considering what
matter I had to toll him , I arose to go.
Ho came over to me and stuck out Tils
car as usual. T told him there were two
senators , as I believed , and one as J
know , who wore considering the prop
riety of deserting the republicans in
order to settle the presidential mattci
upon a basis of peace and perhaps jus
tice. Ho replied to me in a whisper ;
"Yes , 1 know all about it ; and , now I bog
of you , don't print anything about it , or
yon will frighten them away. "
I had boon to sec , Mr. Tilden but a little
while before , when he scorned full of jov ,
chielly on .account of his nomination ,
Therefore , when I met him who had the
reputation of being a man of courageous
business decision and strong common
sense .so thoroughly unnerved in the now
btanding ho had acquired , 1 thought to
myself : "This man is not lit to bo presi
dent of the United States. Ho lias been
overrated for his real qualities. Ho inay
bo all right in linesso campaigning'get
ting out the vote , etc. , but the country is
not going to get along with him. "
I was not , therefore , surprised to sec
Tildun lose tlio presidency with every
wicket in his hands but one , and J have
never been able to resist the conclusion
that ho played his game with an empty
hand. Undoubtedly it is much in a
man's favor that he lias the decisiveness
to go to war when ids country expects
war , and oilers the extraordinary points
of career which only military life can
give. Hayes wrote in his lettjr to his
wife when Mr. Lincoln's call for troops
came : "Stanley Matthews and I have
agreed to go into tlio war. L had rather
die in tiio war than live through it and
not have t'iken part in it. " Thn soldioi
got the ollico because ho had the nerve
not to trillu with his friends who set tc
work for him. Tildun , on the other hand ,
abandoned his friends as far as ho dared ,
and tlioso who saw Pulton , after all hie
labors , discarded and Hunt to die a drunk
ard's death never looked on Tildcn again
us if he woru a man lit to rule the
country.

All the Year Hound : Although Jonncr
was -10 years old before ho made vaccina
tion known to the-world , the subject had
attracted his attention when only a
youthful apprentice fo.i country surgeon.
Ho was convinced that the current
methods of treating cow-pox and small
pox were cupablu of .improvement , and
liii set himself to stu y/tlio nature of the
disease. But foij r W.Y years after his
opinions were lu deV known to the
medical faculty tlt ) > y were contempt
uously scouted. Ho.nrjH of all had to
prove , contrary to tlio , prevalent belief ,
that what was caJloU cow-pox wna not a
certain preventive of small-pox. Then
ho had to trace , out the nature of the
difference in the dlsoases to which cows
are subject , and to-ascertain which ot
thorn possessed them protective virtue
against small-porvii AftQr repeated fail
ures ho made tho'ghthil discovery that it
is "only in a certain condition of the
pustule that the vfrAis is capable of im
parting its protective power to tlio human
constitution. " It was on the 14th of May ,
1700 , that ho first put his theory to the
test by transferring cow-pox by inocula
tion from one human being to another ,
It was two years , however , before his
famous "Inquiry into the Causes and
Eflects of the Viirioho Vaccmai" was
published. Henry Ciivo was the first
London doctor to put the thing to the
test , and hu is credited with performing
the first successful vaccination in Lon
don. Other cases followed , and Lady
Francis Morgan ( afterward Lady Duoie }
was the first lady of rank to have a child
vaccinated.

Mfl FORTUNE'S FORTUNE.
An Error In n Deed and nn Abscond
ing Partner Takes It ,
An opinion of Judge Brewer in the
case of M. Fortune vs John Y. Smith et
al was received at the ollico of the clerk
of the United States district court yester
day. This was a bill to correct an error
in a deed and clear the title to certain
real estate. In 1885 Smith was a cattle
dealer living at N.orth Bond , and doing
business with Jlumsoy & Bucll , a Chicago
commission firm , through ono of their
agents , M. Fortune , the plaintiff in the
action. In January 1885 , Smith and For
tune formed a partnership , Fortune put
ting in 5,800 in cash , $5,200 in notes and
$5,000 borrowed from Uumsoy & Buoll
on the joint note of Fortune and Smith.
In April ol the same year
Smith made a deed convoying
to rortuno , the property known as the
opera house at North Bend to secure For
tune for money ho had put into the firm.
By mistake another property was de
scribed in the deed. Later in the year
Smith absconded , owing Humsey & Bucll
? 33,000 , , and they attached all of his prop
erty. Fortune agreed to lot them go on
with their attachment until they secured
the $5,000 duo them on the joint note of
Smith & Fortune , Kumsoy < & Buoll have
managed to collect about f 9,000. , aud now
Fortune putt ) in his claim. He makes
Huinsoy & Buell co-defendants with Smith
in his suit for thu correction of thu deed ,
which was intended to give him the own
ership of the opera houso.
Judge Brewer holds that while the
agreement between Humsey & Buell and
their agent , Fortune , is not specific m its
terms , Fortune , as a partner of Smith's ,
is equally responsible with Smith to Huin
soy & Buell for thu amount due them
through Smith's transactions. Fortune.
therefore , cannot recover , and the bill
must bo dismissed.
THEY FOUND HIM GUII/TY.

Lyons Mirror , in which it says : "Tho
issue will bo Van Wyck and anti-Van
Wyck. The democrats oppose him , thq
mass of the republicans will support
him. " I do not kiiowanytliing about the
feelings of the republicans , but ! do know
that the people hero are in favor of the
grand old man. 1 have talked with moro
than twenty dcmocr.its , and they say
they will not vote for any man to go to
Lincoln this winter who will not make
the old man his own successor. There
was oven talk of organizing a democratic )
Van Wyck club , but some of them
thought it would probably prejudicd
some republicans against him. It is truq
tiie Herald is holding out great induce
ments to democrats to stick to paity and
elect a democrat , but Van W yekhas boon
tried and not found wanting , and you
can just bet your lust suspender button
that if any man wants to go to Lincoln
from hero ho must bo a Van Wyck man ,

Costly Stupidity.
A hotel olork quoted by the St. Louis
Globo-Domocrat : Two or three years ago
I was night clerk at the Hotel Nantaskot ,
at Nantaskot beach. Ono night John L.
Sullivan , with Pete McCoy and a few ol
His ether sporting friends , came and
wanted something to drink. It was after
13 o'clock and the bar wus closed , but
the head barkeeper happened to be near
the denk , and knowing Sullivan ho
opened the doors and the party went in.
They sat at u table for HOUIO time and
drank a couple of bottles of wine. They
hud evidently had some before coming
to the hotel , and they felt the effects oi
it pretty strongly. As they sat there a
dispute' arose about homo point or other
which I did iiot understand , and Sullivan
finally wanted to hot -$100 that ho was
tight. "Oh , come oil1 , " said McCoy ,
"you haven't ' aflOO. . " "H'nlnt I ? " re
torted Siillhan in a loud voice , as ho
rose from tlio tablo. "I'll show you I've
got money. Set ) hero ! " and quick
as a wink ho drew a magnificent gold
watch from his vest pocket , released it
from the guard and throw it with his
whole strength against the partition
which separated thu wine-room from the
hotel lobby , It sounded likn a bullet from
a gun as it .strueic the woodwork. Of
course , the watch was riuiiod. That WUH
a Ramplo of the reckless and foolish dis
plays which hu frequently made i.i tlioso
days.
But it Is not only the "plug-n/flies / *
and "thugb" who do such things , 1 lm\4
seen exhibitions equally nonsensical on
the part of bOino of thu highest toned
bloods of the Hub. I happened in a rich
hotel bar in Boston ono night wiion a
youth who occupies a plncu in die "host
society" came In and ordnrod wino for
himself and friends. They sat at a table
in front of the bar , and when the bottle
had been emptied , the young man delib
erately picked it up and sent it crashing
through a magnificent French mirror
which tilled the whole wall back of the
bar. Then ho drew his chock-book from
his pocket , bignod n blank and before the
proprietor had time to show lu.s anger.
itskcd him how much ho .should 1111 it out
for. That break cost him ? 1,500.
