A Physician .Scores Itlack.
WASIIINIITON. Oct. ' > , [ Sjicclal Telegram
to the Hii-Un : : ] Thursday last Dr. ( larnctt.
a leading phsclan ! and prominent demo
crat of this city , sent to Pension Com
missioner Hiack a sick cert Illcato In the ease
ot a lad > ' employe of the. pension ofllce.
Next day the doctor received from ( Jcneral
IllacK a note saying the certificate was not
sulllclently explicit , the rules of the olllco re-
ipilrlnt ; that physicians shall specify the
trouble with which an employe is allccted.
The commissioner therefore requested that a
new ecrtlilcatu be made out as soon as practic
able , and added that such documents were
treated with the strictest confidence. Dr.
Oarnetthas sent a reply to Commissioner
lllack's request , in whleh.'jvimong other
things , ho savs : "JIv" lirst Im
pression when reading this ex
traordinary and somewhat impertinent
edict was to return It without comment , but
reflecting that the interest of a lariro number
of innocent persons may bo Involved I have
determined to give expression to my views of
the issue which you have thus presented.
Several jears ago Ibis question of the right
on the part of the government to require eer-
tlllcalesof physicians specifying the disease
with which an absent employe has been af
fected came before the medical association of
the District and ni'ter a free expression of
opinion by its members upon trie subject it
was determined no such demand should bo
compiled with. In all civilized countries the
medical man and patient Is legarded as a
private compact involving the personal honor
of the former and possessing all the
sanctity Implied by an oath , ono which no
honoratile memb.'r of the fraternity could
violate without entailing upon himself per
sonal dlsurace. This question cannot now
ho determined by meiu olllelal dictum of a
government functionary , although clothed
In seemlimly arrogant language of "requir
ing that physicians shall , " etc. No medical
man in this city who possesses proper self
respect mid correctly appreciates tlio dignity
and lesponsibilitles of his profession will
ever demean himself so lar as to comply with
Hitch a iide. "

A lengthy interview Is published here
this morning with an ox-corporal of the
marine corps , a man who is vouched for
as being honorable , liavlng resigned from
the naval service In issa , in whicli It is slated
that naval olllcers have for many yeais been
In league with sum. glers and have bnumhl to
this country a large poitlon of the impoited
poods consumed. The ex-marine olllcor. who
Isln business in this city now , says that in
ISM ) while serving in a subordinate capacity
on the United Stales ship Saratoga , the ship
was sent Into the Mediterranean to bring
home u car 'o of goods for hluli olllclals tit
Washington. "At thu naval pay station , at
Villa Franca , " he says , " wo took onboard
( pule a carjo ol carpets , rugs , etc. . purchased
by ptisons In high station and sent to Villa
I'rancafor storage , whMi were marked 'Sec
retary Thompson. " ( lloves , silks ,
) r."os , etc. . were purchased In
huge quantities , packed In sealed
metal boxes and waterproof paper. Jirfnct ,
the pmchases wcio made so extensively that
we began to think wo represented some mer
cantile house , lather , than the United States.
On oifr relurti "trip , Ave shipped at Funolml , .
wlicre the shli8 | launch was low'eredifor this
phrftoso of assisting -iif talclng-oii boatdotir
last ciirco. viz. , wine. Upon arriving In thu
United States Instead of putting into
an Important port , wo. anchored In Hamp
ton Koads , and were not troubled by a visit
from the collector of customs. ' 1 lie first
transfer of cargo made was to a light-house
loader which came into the roads , and to II
was transferred casks of wine and maiked
"llabcock. " A few days later theTallaimosa
came down from Washington , proceeded to
Hampton roads , and imulo It convenient to
come alongside the Saratoga abottl dark.
The crew was at oncis put to work rigging
whips and tackle to aid in taking the cargo
out of the hold. An estimate of the
amount of plunder , consisting of
wine , carpets , laces , silk goods ,
etc , , transferred to the Tallapossa
may be- formed from the time occupied in un
loading the vessel , about five hours. In jus
tice to the officers attached to the Saratoga It
ts proper to state that their portion of the
cargo was a reasonable ono ono or two
casks of wlno each to ship to friends In dis
tant parts of the country , some dozen pairs
of uluves and several bolts of silk. The bulk
of cargo , however , was consigned to such
humble clti/.eus1 as Secretary Thompson.
( ieneral Sherman , Commodore Kntlish and
. others of the same standing.
Public Printer Benedict , In an Inter
view with tlio Post , endeavors to show
that Itomida' administration of the printing
oir , e was criminally extravagant , If not cor
rupt. The Interview concludes as lollow :
"borne of these days them will bo a staitllng
explosion of the way In which ex-Public
Pi inter Hounds mnuagcd to squander public
money. Ink und other supplies are now be
ing pmchuscd for one-half or one-fourth

Wlion now printing presses were wanted his
HOD was madu the necessary nilililk-man
through whom they worn purchased. Some
WQV was always found for n frlund to

which needed to be kept at a moderate tem

'in Unit teiritury , to restrain the losisleraiid
icoeivcr trout taking testimony in respect to

matter to Secretary Lamar with a recom
mendation that ho request the attorney gen
eral to Instruct the United States attorney
by telegraph to appear without delay before
the court issuing the writ , and have the same

Involving the exercise of their judgment and

torney general gave tlie necessary Instiuc-

cans refused to bold joint meetings to dis
cuss the Issues of the day , but have called
meetings of their own in the different pre
cincts of thu county. The democrats und.
anti-monopolists have also issued notices o
meetings throughout the county. The issue
between the candidates tor the legislature Is
anti-Van Wyck and Van Wyck , and the
canvass is an earnest one.There Is no doubt
but that the largo majority of the fanners
of linono county are 'In favor of
Van Wyck. Hut the principal inleiost
Is In the election of county attorney.
In hunting up Major .Miller's lecord as a
