HUMS in Ireland has taken anew
now lease of life since Mr. Gladstone
1ms again infused some of hib old-lime
vigor into the fight. In coiioequenee
Iho Irish leaders have plucked up
courage , and it looks now as if the
house of commons is to bo made the
battle ground of another prolonged
fclruggle for Irish olf-govornmont.
IT isn't much of n recommendation to
auibitioue young men to run for con
gress when a bright young congress
man like Perry Bolmoiit , of Now York ,
niter eight years' service in the house ,
is tired of being "an errand-boy for his
constituents. " The truth of the matter
is that it is difficult to accomplish any
thing in the house in the present tem
per of the two parties. A man who has
ambition can find a field more satisfac
tory for his ability outside of the halls
of congress.
NKWSPAIMIIS that feed their patrons
on plates are liable occasionally to im
pose upon them , and inako themselves
supremely ridiculous. A striking ox-
tuuplo of plate enterprise is furnished
by our venerable contemporary , the
JfbnjMrcd , across the river , which prints
an address alleged to have boon deliv
ered by the Reverend Talmago at the
Crolo assembly. As a matter of fact ,
Dr. Talmago is on the Atlantic beach ,
and his address is still among the things
that are to bo. IIo failed to keep his
appointment at Crete , and his literary
managers that supply his sermons and
addresses in advance could not have
foreseen this break on the part
of the great pulpit pounder. Such
of the people of Council BlulTs and west
ern Iowa as still depend on the JYbiijKi-
tcil for their daily information have had
a treat out of nn empty decanter.
THK Fort Worth board of trade has
called for a deep-water convention July
10 , to which delegates of business men
from all the western states and territo
ries are invited. The object of the con
vention is to discuss which of the three
bays on the coast of Texas would bo
most advisable todovolop into a deepwater
ter harbor. The movement inaugurated
by the people of Texas is destined to be
fraught with great benefits to the west.
AVitli deep-water ports on the To.\as
coast easy communication with Europe
can bo cbtablishod and a great trade
v/ith Mexico and South America can
eventually bo built up. Tlio obsta
cles in the way are many. The
harbors of Toxns are few in number ,
bhallow and dangerous to navigation.
There are three principal inlets which
can be made safe and sin vicuable. These
nro Galveston bay , Matagorda bay ,
ami AraiiBiis pass. Of the three it is
thought that Aransas pass , 200 miles
Eouth of Galventon , can with tlio least
expense ho dredged and deepened io as
to allow the entrance of largo ocean
steamers. The borions objection to
Aransas pass is its location. There are
no uitlob at the head of this gulf , and it
is too far down the coast , It
is stated , however , that if the
government will aid the slate
of Texas in Improving this waterway ,
that the various railroads of Texas \\lll
unite in building a city at the head of
the Pass. , which would bo nvxtlo the terminus -
minus of all the leading lines in the
Plate. But it is doubtful whether a
project on so stupendous a scale will be
undertaken. The moro probable ac
tion of the- Fort Worth convention will
1)0 to urge on .congress and thu tttato
the necessity of improving Gulvuatoii
1'ay. ID the judgment of many en
gineers , the bay of Gulvcston under the
present conditions is best suited for the
sq of a safe and ilaop water harbor ,
A I'olntod Truth.
General Sherman Is' a most careful
and intettlKOBt observer of public afi-
fairs , and r\o has niv exceedingly terse
ami pointed wny of staling the results
of liis observation , lie is reported to
have said that "there has not been a
true union man sent to represent this
country in foreign lamls under tlio pres
ent administration , " and so far as wo
hnvo observed , no defender of the ad
ministration hns come forward with an
attempt to refute the statement. It is a
very pointed truth which Iho Demo
cratic organs do not care to come in con
tact with , and it is ono which tlio Amer
ican people will do well to consider.
It is a matter of no small sig
nificance that the present admin
istration has sent ns representa
tives of this government in for
eign lands only men who were in a
greater or less degree tin friendly to the
union cause during the period of the
great struggle for the preservation of
the government.
Who are some of the men to whom
this charge will apply ? The govern
ment is represented in Kngland by Mr.
Phelps , who was a somewhat active
democrat during the rebellion , when
among other evidences of his anti-union
sentiment ho publicly characterised
President Lincoln as a buffoon and
otherwise attempted to disparage that
great man , then burdened with a
weight of cares and responsibilities
greater than was borne by nny man of
his time , and who exhibited through
all a wisdom and patriotism never sur
passed. Mr. Phelps is oven now
more of nn English man than an Ameri
can in feeling. Our roprosoatativo in
Franco is an old Maryland democrat of
the purest bourbon type , who never
uttered a word of sympathy for the
union , and was always found acting
with tlio party in his state which desired -
sired the success of the confederacy. It
is nowhere recorded of Minister Mc-
Lane that ho failed to champion the
democratic party , even when it gtxvo
aid and comfort to the enemy by declar
ing the war a failure. The minister to
Germany is George II. Pcndloton , who
was the democratic candidate for yico
president in 1804 , and stood on the plat
form which proclaimed the war a fail
ure , thereby giving encouragement
to the enemies of the govern
ment south and nol'th. Tlio minister -
tor to Austria-Hungary was a confed
erate general , who was llrst appointed
minister to Moxlcoand withdrawn when
it was discovered lhathis political disab
ilities had not been removed , another
ox-confederate receiving the appoint
ment. Minister Law ton subsequently
asked to be purged , and when this was
done , the administration promptly facnt
him to Vienna.
These examples will bo sufficient to
justify the statement of General Sher
man. The present administration has
retained a few consular officers who
were appointed under previous adminis
trations , and who consequently wore
union men , but among its own appoint
ments of men to represent the govern
ment abroad , not one , so far as wo know ,
was a true friend of the union in the
day of peril.
A. Republican Tariff Rill.
Senator Allison informs TIIK Bnu's
Washington correspondent that the
senate will shortly present a bill to re
duce the surplus revenues from the re
publican standpoint.
This is ab it should bo. The eflorts of
a democratic house have spread disgust
throughout the country in both parties ,
both by reason of the means used and
the result attained.
The means used were n complete
suppression of all testimony as to the
advantages or disadvantages of proposed
changes in the tarill schedules. Tlio
majority held their sessions with
closed doors. They refused to hear
alike the manufacturers and laborers ,
the Randalls and the Jewetts.
Tlio result attained is a bill which
the best economists , irrespective of
party , declare will increase rather than
reduce the revenue through an influx
of dutiable imports which are manufac
tured in this country , and which will
close mills and blow out furnaces with
out any corresponding benefits to Amer
ican producers.
Assuming that the farmers of the
west arc not interested in the diversifi
cation of industry the Mills-Cleveland
tariff bill has driven the knife into
every product upon which western
farmers depend for a homo market.
Its boasted free list , by whose extension
the greatest benefits of tnrill reform
would bo granted to the greatest num
ber , has lioon sliced and pared
down to suit the wishes
of democratic constituencies. In
its present form the bill is a mongrel
aggregation of inconsistencies and
The west is in favor of a reform in
the tariff and a reduction of revenue to
Iho needs of the country. But it is not
and never has been in favor of an im-
coiibidcrcd and wholesale attack- upon
indiibtrlcs employing 7,000,000 mechan
ics and giving sustenance tn 00,000,000
of our population , and affording a homo
market for the products of the ag
riculturists of the entire nation.
It has rUon in protest against the
exactions of the Bessoinor kings , the
salt monopolists and the lumber barons ,
but it lias never insisted that every
clatr. of industry shall bo assailed for
the benellt of a single class. It has
been steadily and consistently in favor
of tariff reform , but it has never raised
its voice on behalf of industrial destruc
tion ,
For this reason the republican tariff
reform measure will bo awaited with
interest by millions of intelligent farm
ers and wngo workers throughout the
country. It will come from a committee
whore all aides have had a hearing
and will In all probability too nocoin-
paliied by a. report dissecting the

How Sailors In tlio Arctic Ocean Get

"What do we do wilh so many old
papers ? Send Ihom up to Iho Arctic
ocean. "
It was the proprietor ol nn oulfltllng

answering the inquiry of the reporter
ns lo whnl ho wauled of 5,000 pictorial
und slory papers , for which ho had nd-
verlisod in tlio San Francisco Examiner.
"To the Arctic ocean ! And what do
you do with them there ? "
" \Vc bend them up to the sailors on
whaling vessels. About three hundred
bailers , engaged through us , are up
there over half the year , nnd to each
ono of these wo bend nt least llftcon
papers every season. They are glad to
gel most anything in the shape ot n
paper , bul most of the men like mngn-

"Do you depend entirely on the an
swers to your ndvortibcmcnts for your

"No ; wo go lo each ono of Iho news
papers in Ihis oily , bolli wccklv and

wo send to each of the bailers a few of

"Hero is nnothor stack of papers , "
and ho pointed to u heap of papers

"Those letters , do they also go ? " A
long box full of yellow envelopes , each
with n superscription to somebody on
some wlinloship , "Arctic ocean , " lay
beside the papers.
"Yes , wo send each year ono loiter to
each man. Of course , they like to
know what is going on hero , and wo
write a general account of matters of in

"You don't write a different individ

"Oh , no. We bunch tlioin as much

A Now Version oft lie Ouster Massacre
Fremont Tribune : Dr. David Tall-
chill , who was mentioned as being in
Fremont a few days ago , gave a re
porter nn interview regarding Ihe ter
rible battle between Sitting Bull and
General Custor on Juno 2-3 , 1675 , which
rosulled in Iho death of tlmt famous
cavalry commander and all but two of
his subordinates and soldiers.
A brief biography of Dr. Tnlhehift
will go far loward establishing' his re
liability and opportunity for an un
biased version of thai battle. Tnllichilf ,
who is a fullbloodcdIndian , having had
Ihe advantage of six yours of schooling
in Iho cilics of Washington and Phila
delphia , is an educated man and gentle
man with largo experience , both in
eastern society and in frontier life. In
1801 ho was selected and placed in the
union army as a spy whore he con
tinued to the close of the war and in
which capacity ho became acquainted
with Major Showaltor , whose firm
friend ho still remains and whose guest
ho tilwaj'h is when visiting Fremont.
For the past six years ho has boon liv-
inJ3 nt Bussoll , Brown county , Nob. , and
has won a desirable reputntion as a
physician and as n truthful , honorable
and well respected man.
After the war TnllehifT was employed
by the government nnd stalioncd al'lho
Sac and Fox agency in Indian territory
as an interpreter and when ho was
taken by Mr. Mccchnm , the govern
ment peace commissioner in the early
part of the season of 1870 to assist in a
settlement of the growing hostilities
between the whites and Sitting Bull on
the Big Horn rhor in Montana. In
aboul two weeks after tlio arrival of the
party at the Indian camp , Silling Bull
received a notice from General Custor
to remove his women and children us it
was his intention to attack him. To
this Tnllcliill claims that Sitting Bull
al once soul his women und children
into the British dominions , and scuit
word to Custor lhal ho was nol a fight
ing man nor could lie bee Iho nccessily
of a battle while Mooclmm , Iho ponce
commissioner , was in his camp lo oiled
a compromise.
To Iho surprise of all Iho noxl report
from the Indian scouts was thai the
"long-haired warrior" was upon Ihom
and Iho battle of Uray or Iho "big horn"
was on in earnest. Hero commences
the marked fo ilure of Tallcliiff's report.
With the opening of tha battle began
one of the llorcost thunder storms over
wilnesbod in thai country of mountains
and Ihe homo of moniilain storms. The
thunder wns deafening , Ihe incessant
lightning was blinding while the inin
and wind vied with ouch other in their
efforts to produce confusion and destruc
tion. After the storm sot in neither
party wcro visible to tlio other and wilh
the cessation of the storm censed Iho
human strife which in comparison
to the raging element : ) was
simply puerile. Tlio ground
\\ns strewn with the dead , but
not with the dying for at least from
forty to lifty of bolh whites and Indian
with equally as many horses were killed
by the falal bolts of lightning with not
n mark of a wound upon their persons.
Tallchiff showed us the scnr of a wound
which ho received on his ( eg from a
stray arrow and which prevented him
from making a tour of the Hold , but
says the Indians told him that it was
the lightning thai did the most of Iho
( loath work and tlmt Ouster's body
showed no wound or war. It is his
opinion Unit but for the storm , the light
which ut first was far moro savage from
tlio surprise of the Indians than from
their natural bravery would have soon
terminated in n complete surrender to
General Cu&tor and'probably in a cessa
tion of hoitilitics , which lie is not alone
in thinking wns nbt entirely the fault
of tlio Indians.

LINCOLN , July 4. )
The streets nrc unusually quiet today.
Ono would scarcely know tlmt this Is the
nnnivcmry of tlio tuition's birth from the
outward display. Lincoln seem1 * to bo foij
gutfully quiet. Cclobrntors hied themselves
away to Crete on the etirly laornliitr trnln to
ooze out their patriotism under the rnys of
tlio hottest sun of tlio year , tlio thermometer
registering 10-1 degtocs In the sluulo at high
noon todny. This nty contributed nt least
1,000 of the assembly's Rucsts. And jet the
day hero * was not devoid of Interesting
Tlio steward , nt tlio asylum for the
Insane , huuianltnriiin like , made am
ple proparaton for the enjoyment nnd
recreation of tliounfortunates in his charge.
At 4 o'clock the brass band connected with
the Institution marched throiiKli the grounds ,
discoursing sweet music ; cheerful , perhaps.
to all such us nmj bo recovering reason and
soothing to those who oven Itnow not their
madness. At 4 ! IO prayer was offered. Ur.
J. T. Hay followed , reading the declaration
of independence , and the superintendent , Dr.
\ \ ' , ICiuipp , delivered an appropiialo oration.
The spread commenced at precisely 5 o'clock ,
nndvns complete with good tilings , con
sisting of Ice cream , lemonade , cakes , caiuiy ,
nuts and all Wads of fruits obtainable. In
the meanwhile dancing commenced on the
green nnd was ciinnged in only by the pa
tients. After they hud gone to rest the em
ployes took the phitfoun , and continued to
trip the light mntustlcs. Verily the day was
a happy ono at the asylum.
The dny was observed at thosttto peniten
tial y as a legal holiday. There was uo work
and the men were given numeious favors.
The dinner provided was an extra line one.
Cigars and leinoiude were given to each
prisoner. During the afternoon the Hop
kins minstrels , selected fiom among the con
victs , gave a grand entertainment ut the
chapel. There wcro thirteen stars and four
end men.
Piemeing was the order nt Cushman's
park. Quito a largo crowd enjoyed the day
there. Mrs. Weber , assisted by talented vo
calists from homo and abroad , gave a conceit
of national airs , assisted -bv the Philhar
monic orchestra. The exhibition of tlio
New poit divers at 5 o'clock , made from tree
tops , proved an intcicstiiig feature of the
day's piogiammc.
Mr. W. Hcnek , who 1ms fur a long time
been the eOleient < ashler of the Lombird In
vestment company , has resigned his position
and loaves at once for Colorado to engage m

tweon tin eo teams of Omaha nlujcis and

number of the admiicrs ot the game. The
games woie not without interest , although
the playing of the home teams doas not show

every game with ono exception. The prac
tice of the Omaha teams was evidently such
that they had become experts , while Lin
coln's teams , however skilllul their plays ,

How the Newt nt the Chicago ConVcti-
* tton Was Sent Alirontl.
The convention that has'just closed
\\i\s the most Important lo Iho newspa
pers of the country that has ever been
held , sny < t the Intel-Ocean. That f
eight years ngo was the only ono that
can bo compared with it , because it cov
ered the same number of dajs ; but ill
18SO the lines were distinctly drawn be
tween Grant nml 131aino , with tlio Hold
holding the balance of newer , and there
was not much speculation as to Iho out
come. In this convention there has
been the field nnd the Blaine senti
ment , which has kept the air filled
with speculation for two weeks.
Men hnvo been freer to talk dur
ing this convention than they wcro
eight years ago. Then there wore bitter -
tor factions which had no communica
tion with each other. It was a contest
measured by endurance , This has been
ono in which good nature aboundedand
diplomacy played the leading nnrt.
The managers of Sherman's forces nave
been found in the rooms of the Allison
men , the Grcshnm men , nnd wherever
there wore republicans. Tlio advocates
of the other candidates were just as free
in mingling with their opponents , nnd
all this encouraged "peculation. There
have boon between 2oO and ! JOO special
correspondents in the city , represent
ing the daily press of the country , nnd
as largo n number of newspaper men
who had no place at the working tables
in tlio convention hall hut were inter
ested spectators from the gal
leries. All of these men
have been writing columns of
mutter , speculating upon the outcome
of the convention. To meet Iho demand
the telegraph companies provided extra
wires nnd a large corps of oflh'ioiit op
erators , and it can safely bo said that
never before has there been a conven
tion or any other o\ent which sent out
so much news as has gone from Chicago
to the country and the world in the last
ton days.
Superintendent dowry , of the West
ern Union , bays tjioro has never been so
largo a telegraph service anvwhoro as
that of their company in the last week.
The special matter from special cor
respondents alone amounted to 500,000
words n day from the time the conven
tion assembled until its close.
The Western Associated Press sent
scut out the regular report , of the con-
\ontion over leased wires , and tele
graphed moro than 0.000 words n day.
Iho other press associations together
sent out about the same amount of mat
ter. In all , the wires of the Western
Union company have carried about 600-
000 words a day , and reports and specu
lations on the convention in the last ten
days which have been bent out from
the Chicago otllco , amount to about 0- ,
000,000 words or moro than double the
amount sent out from the St. Louis con
Superintendent dowry says that the
telegraph companies never had the
same facilities for reporting a conven
tion to the country before or anywhere
else. In the ante-room of the convention
hall wore thirty direct circuits to thirty
of the leading cities and towns of the
country , and these were manned by
forty competent operators. All matter
for afternoon papers , all bulletins , and
all important telegrams filed were bent
direct from the convention hall. Super
intendent Ulowry had a table directly
in front of the speaker' * stand , anil
George Bain sat there with him making
up bulletins. Ho had two assistant to
change the manifold for him and help
him with the figures on the ballots.
Connecting that table with the operat
ing room below was a pneumatic tube ,
which carried all bulletins and all asso
ciated press matter to the operators.
Bulletins were sent by the Western
union to every city and town along
their lines free of charge during the
sessions of the convention so tlmt the
whole country was kept informed as to
what took place. Some mounted mes
sengers carried matter for morning pa-
pcisfrom the convention hall to the
main oflleo at the corner of Washing
ton and LaSalle streets , where : fiO op
erators manned the wires , and kept
running day and night. With the re
lays between UOO and 700 men were em
ployed by the Western Union company
to take care of the convention reports.
Arrangements wcro also made
throughout the country for close
attention to the working of the whey.
Special locomotives and baud-cars were
in readiness at all tunes to repair
breaks which might occur and inter-
feie with the service. But the weather
was favorable and the service has been
unsurpassed. No city can compare with
Chicago for telegraphic facilities for
reporting great conventions. The city
is the greatest distributing point in the
country and located as it is , can touch
all parts of the country bj duoct cir
cuit without repeating matter , as it
would have to bo if sent to Now York.
From Chicago we can reach Now York
nnd San Francisco , St. Paul and New
Orleans by direct wlru , without re
peating meagoi anywhere.
When the convention wns taking the
test ballot for president morning light
ning operators sat at their instruments
below , with their lingers on the key
ready to Hash the nomination over the
whole country and the world. Mr. Bain
and his assistants in front of thu speak
er's debit kept tab on the vote , and the
instant enough votes were recorded for
Senator Hai-rimm to give him the nom
ination the signal was given , and utray
it went to the outside world before the
convention realised what it had dono.
The nomination was read from the
speaker's desk in the house at Washing
ton before the Indiana delegation bugnh
to shout in tlio convenlion.and in thirty
seconds from the time ho mid enough
ovtes his nomination was road in San
Francisco. It was cabled to London and
roail in the metropolis of the world two
minutes after , and before the vote was
announced in Iho convention.
Superintendent dowry sajs that ho
has heard it said that there was but ono
operator in the wigwam in ISdO when
Lincoln was nominated. In IhiiS , when
( jonoral Grant was nominated in
Crosby's opera house , the Western
Union olllcers and operators hud the
use of a proscenium box , and four oper
ators soul out the report of that con
vention from the hall. In 187D , at Cin
cinnati there was a greater interest
taken in reaching the country by full
telegraphic ) reports , and llflcon oper
ators were in the hall.
Since then there have boon special
arrangements made , whereby the cor
respondents might file their matter in
the convention hall. But there have
boon fully a million inoio words bunt
out from this convention than ain oth
er over held. Supurintondont dowry
has given his whole time to the con
vention , and hue never boon absent
from his table in the hall during the
session. Mr. K. II. Summers hnd charge
of the editorial circuits , and was as-
hlbtod by W. B. Somerville , of New
York , and SuperintendentTubbs , of the
Chicago olllco.
Chief Operator Lloyd , at the main
ofllco , nnd Hulliyan at thu convention
hull , deserve the highest p'-nibo for
their work. The. newspaper men in the
city spoilt ) in the highest terms of praise
of the way in which their ropurts eio
bent out , and thu Associated prcas also
buys the facilities were uncnualcd.

There ib no happier being ou o'lith.
says the Now Yoriv Pi ess , than the
negro farmer riding into a southern
to'wu'behicd a half starved steer with a
load of Utbavco in his prairlo schoonpr.
U represents tlio product ot a small
natch in a favmed p'nrt of his farm ,
but it may bring him $ ,1,000 or indro.
At ono of tliu sales at Durham , .the bnsy
Uttlo town in the center'ot the hrlgh't
yellow Sfoi'lh Carolina tobacco bo.ll , or
the golden belt , as they call it , n grny-
haired old colored man stood watching
the crowd of buyers ns tlroy bid against
each other on the pile that ieprpontcd
his crop. As the amount ro o higher
and higher , his eyes grow larger and
larger , his limbs shook , nnd he changed
his ouid of tobacco from side to Mtlo so
quickly that ho did not hnvo time to
chew it. When SI , 1500 was reached ho
could no longer contain himself ,
but alioulcil : "Stop right there , gent-
incus ; dais enough ! IJis niggah cant
stand no more. Never had so much
money in nil my born days. " And ho
might well bo surprised , for his old
steer had drawn it nil to the sales ware
house at ono load. The o tobacco auc
tions are lively spectacles. In ono of
the largest warehouses in Durham ns
many as 1,000 piles of tobacco tire laid
out at one sale. Tlio auctioneer slops
from pile lo pile as ho sells , the buyeis
following him. Ho noxor says a word
nbout the quality of the leaf , but simply
rattles olt the liguros , never stopping
until the pllo is knocked down. The
buyers know the quality us soon as
their eyes rest on it. Occasionally they
will run their hands into a pile , select
tv bunch and feel of it , but usually pile
nflor pile is bold without n person touch
ing it. The bids run right along , each
bidder knowing just what ho is doing.
These bidders are the most expert men
in the business , and represent houses in
the surrounding Section nnd distant
manufacturers and dealers. The New
York and foreign markets are icpre-
sonlcd at all the tobacco sales in Dur
ham , N. C. , and Lvnehburg and Dan
ville , Vn.
The North Carolina bright yellow to
bacco industry has pro\ed a mine of
wealth to the planters. When Sher
man's armv stopped near Durham the
boys got some of the tobacco to smoke in
their pipes' . They were so delighted
with it that when they reached their
homes they sent for more. The to
bacco thus got the best of advertising.
The crop is a troublesome ono to han-
dlo. There are throe kinds of worms
that like to feed upon it , of these horn
worm likes the plant so well that it haste
to bo picked oil by hand ; and the field
hands go searching for it by lantern
light ut night. Then the matter of cur
ing the leaf is tv very delicate one. A
whole crop may bo spoiled alto
gether or precipitated s-oino grades
lower in the scale by a
little carelessness or unskillful
ness in regulating the heat. Thebais
usually are bcvcnteen and one-half feet
square , just holding -130 sticks. Tlio
heat is raised from the yellowing heat
at the rate of live degrees every two
hours. When the heat reaches lol de
grees it is kept there twelve hours.
It is then raised live degrees every
hour and a half until it gets to IbO de
grees , which cures both stem and stock
in a 'short timo. Kentucky , w ith her
181.000,000 pounds of tobacco , equals
the next four highest states , lca\lng
out Virginia's 70,000,000. Kentucky'b
product equals those of Pennsylvania ,
Ohio , Tennessee , North Carolina.
Maryland , Connecticut and Missouri ,
which are the principal tobacco states ,
although New Yorl : looms up with a
respectable product of 0lhl-lU ! , Mas > a-
chusetts 5iV,450. : ( ) Indiana Sfa" , , S12 , and
Illinois 2t)3oH25 pounds.
