Learning that there was a stranger in
the city who had casually related to a Gal-
veston merchant a conversation with a
member of the Houston board of health,
showing that the quarantine proceedings
against the Colorado were in the
nature of retaliation. a reporter
proceeded to find the gentleman. He was
directed to Mr. li. F. Beach, of Seneca
Falls, N. Y., traveling for Messrs. Goulds
& Ostrandar, of St. Louis, and correspond-
ent of the Seneca Courier and Reveille,
who was found at the store of Messrs.
Shean Disbrow. The reporter plied him
for an account of the conversation referred
to, and took down the following statement,
which, by request, Mr. Beach read and
Mr. Beach says he remarked to alder-
man Wiggins, a customer of his and a
liemboror the board of health at Houston,
*n Friday last, that there seemed to be
jonsiderablo feeling between Houston and
'.Salveston in regard to lotting in or keep-
ing out thr Colorado. Mr. Wiggins re-
plied : "Yes, there certainly is. I
nave no idea there is any danger
to be apprehended from the Colo-,
rado anjr more than from any other
vessel. So the whole board think. " But wo
think it a parallel case with that of the
2$ew York last year, which they kept out,
and we mean to keep out the Colorado."
This, Mr. Beach added, was substantially
what Mr. Wiggins said to him. conveying
to him the impression tliat retaliation "was

Dr. Haden has replied to the communi-
cation of mayor Burke, o£ Houston, in re-
gard to the steamship Rio Grande leaving
passengers at Key West on her last trip, as
oelow. The board prohibited all communi-
cation with Key West by resolution
adopted on the 1st or August.
The Rio Grande was then en route from
New York for this port, having sailed
July 20, and it was understood at the
meeting of the board that day, pending
consideration of the resolution, she had
passed Key West and was then between
that port and Galveston. She was in port
here August 4. and sailed for New York

a slip-up at brownsville.
Galveston, Aug. 25, 187J.—Dr. J. M.
Haden. President Board of Health—My
Dear Sir: While the steamship I. C. Har-
ris was on her way from lndianola to Bra-
zos last trip, I received a telegram from
M. J. Gomila, our agent at Brownsville,
that the authorities of Brownsville had al-
lowed the passengers to land off the Ariel
after a stop at quarantine outside
- of ten d&vs. I did not know nor
do not yet know where the Ariel was
from, but. supposing her from some infect-
ed port, from the fact of her being quaran-
tined, and, in view of these facts, thinkiug
that perhaps your board might quaran-
tine againsc that section. I immediately
telegraphed our agent to send the ship
back without any mail, passengers and
freight. The Harris is now here, and has
cargo for Brazos, and the object of this
communication is to know if the ship can
return to Brazos and continue regularly in
the freight and passenger business, as I
would not like to be deprived of the
services of this ship in the west-
ern trade, by having a quaran-
tine established in the absence of the ship
with freight on board of her. Hence, if
your honorable board propose any re-
strictions against Brownsville, we will
know of same before we load the ship for
Though your honorable board know that
the ship does not go to Brownsville, but to
Brazos Santiago, thirty miles distant from
Brownsville, and she can go, if nocessarv.
to Brazos without any commu-
nication with Brownsville, and
land her cargo into lighters, I
would, however, much regret to have
the freight and passenger traffic stopped
from Brownsville. The same would be a
great inconvenience to the people there
and to this line also, and 1 trust your hon-
orable body will see no necessity for any
restrictions against the above place at all,
etc. A prompt reply is urged, as we de-
sire to load the ship. Yours very respect-
fully, Chas. Fowler," A gent.
I learn from our ship that the ship that
landed passengers at Brownsville was the
British steamship Ariel and had come from
Europe and had touched off Tampico and
Vera Cruz. The passengers landed were
from Europe, and the citizens of Browns-
ville rose up and demanded that the health
cliicer be dismissed, and he has been dis-
missed and Dr. Wolff has been appointed.
inquiring for further facts.
Dr. Watts proposed the following:
Resolved, that the authorities of Browns-
ville be telegraphed to obtain facts relat-
ing to passengers and freight of steamship
Ariel, and if the answer is satisfactory,
the president of this board is authorised to
reply to Capt. Fowler that his vessels can
continue their voyages to Brazos St. lago
under restrictions governing all vessels
admitted to this port.

The immense throngs that visited the
fair grounds Sunday attest the communi-
ty's interest in the camp-meeting in pro-
gress there. It is natural to presume that
the novelty of a camp-meeting on Galves-
ton island drew many to the grounds, but
it is to bo hoped others were drawn thither
by a sincere desire of benefit in having
their thoughts t.urnod away from the
things of this world and directed to the
The services of Sunday were conducted,
at 0 o'clock, by llev. P. E. Nichoisou. His
sermon was based upon the text. '* How can
these things be *" a question addressed by
Nicodemus to Christ upon being informed
by the Saviour that "ye must be born
The sermon illustrated how simple is
conversion to one who hath the Holy Spirit
bearing witness with his spirit that he is a
child of God: and yet how strange to one
out of the ark of safety. It was plain and
practical, yet intensely pathetic.
At the 11 o'clock service a very largo
audience listened to a most thrilling dis-
course by Rev. G. W. Briggs. His aim
was to show that God's people are u a pe-
culiar people," as exemplified in the record
of them found in the bible. He gave his
audience a picture of this "peculiar peo-
plo " of 1800 years ago, and another of the
church of to-day. It was noticed that a
goodly number of " pillars of the church "
dropped their heads as the speaker asked
them to look first upon this picture, and
then upon that! The peroration was as
In conclusion, do not misunderstand
me. I am no Obscurantist. I would not
shroud the church's life in the swaddling
clothes of its infancy. Build your frescoed
walls half way to the skies, and I will not
say nay. Give us Beethoven music and
Angelo ]>ainting, and I will not raise my
hand against it. Lay aside all that is out-
worn and useless, and I will stand above
its grave and say, Peace to its memory."
But, my friends, there are some things
that do not grow old. There are good
angels walking about this world on whose
brows there is never the frost of age, and
whose footsteps never totter to the grave
of the out-worn, and these angels are:
Love, Purity, Meekness, Temperance,
Faith, Gentleness and Self-denial. And
this I know, that if religion means any-
thing, it means shrining these angels In
Another thing I know, that the church
has in these days well nigh banished these
angels from its heart, giving place to
greed, covetousness, lust, selfishness, and a
thousand demons from the pit! And this,
too, I know, that as long as this is true the
church will be a spent force. It must give
up the leadership of the world or return to
a simpler faith and a better life. Why,
when I look upon the church's face, mir-
rored back upon me from the surface of
society, and then read these old descrip-
tions "which make up its early portrait,
they seem to mo to written in a sublime
and bitter irony. " Ye are lights in the
world!" What sort of lights are chris-
tians who are only animated fashion-
plates? What sort of lights are the chris-
tians who crowd your theaters and throng
your dance halls?
" Lights in the world!" Oh! poor, dark
world—blinded by the god you worship:
thy bark all lost in seas of Acheron and
nights of Erebus—thou dost need lights!
Lights flashing steadily, and flashing
heavenward! And God has given thee
light: beacons that ought flame with the
radiance of another world, but which,
alas, have in these times comc to be only
false lights, tyring thee on to the sharp
reef and bursting breaker. Listen again:
"Ye are the salt of the earth." Salt in
the sense of preservation; salt to keep the
world's life sweet and pure; salt to destroy
the acrid fumes that seek to fill with rot-
tenness the heart of society; salt with
its blessed, wholesome, life-preserving
power. But what sort of salt is
that which adds fuel to the fire
of the word's decay and putri faction.
Listen again: "Sonsof God, blameless
and harmless." Sons of God! Here lan-
guage fails me! Sons of God! princes of
the blood 'royal of heaven, cheating and
drinking and quarreling and roj'stering
with the worst! Sons of God! heirs of the
riches of the universe, with Mammon's
chains around their necks, bending to the
muck-rake and dust pile! Sons of God!
who ought to walk this world in the white
uniform of heaven—4 the beauty of holi-
ness '—stalking among men clad in the
black robes of hate, the green cloak of
envy, the tawdry rags of pride, and the
fiend-wove garb of passion! Sons of God,
blameless and harmless! Blameless and
harmless! My friends, they may take it
as their banner test, they may broider it
on their housings, they may flaunt it in
mimic fighfc or noliday review, but are
they harmless and blameless? Are not
their claws as ^harp and their hunger as
boundless as any hyena-soul in the great
world-jungles' Ask the defenseless widows
whose portions they have devoured.
Ask the orphan children who
are homeless because of them—
tender children, shivering beneath
the world's cold arches because of them!
Ask the dead reputations that have with-
ered beneath their caustic tongues "set
on fire of, hell,"
My triends, we can't play at religion
much longer. This nineteenth century has
turned upon us, its eye sharpened by ages
of thought, and we must meet the gaze;
and for one I am glad of it. Deliver us
from all shams and shows, and especially
the shams and shows of religion. If we
arc going to preach self-denial, let's preach
it with a crost on our backs. If we are
going to preach what men should suffer
for men, let's not shrink from our " crown
of thorns." If we are going to preach
holiness, let's put on the garb. If we are
going to try to lead the lost world to
heaven, for God's sake let's start heaven-

Dr. John gave an eloquent discourse based
upon the fact that, chained to the floor of
their prison, their feet in the stocks, their
backs blood-clotted and lacerated by the
scourging which under the Roman law
they had received,
"At midnight Paul and Silas prayed."
The speaker showed the analogy be-
tween business men and christians. "They
are governed by the same principles. Be-
fore he embarks in an enterprise, a pru-
dent business man inventories his resources
and uses them to the best advantage. So
with the true christian. But what are the
christian's resources? The chief one is the
pledged power of God to help. How are
we to be benefited by this divme aid? By
asking for it. Even in our deei>est dis
tress—all earthly suppoi ts swept away—
like Paul and Silas, we should pray, and
prayer will get the help. Prayer is the
application of a dependent being to a su-
preme power for help, with the full ex-
pectation of receiving that help. He ap-
pealed to christians to pray to God for His
blessings upon this camp-meeting, with
the full expectation that he would bless it
in the up-building of the church and the
conversion of souls.
Rev. Mr. Bailey, of the baptist church,
preached to an immense audience, taking
as his text:
"What must I do to be savedr" This
was the question asked by the jailer of
Paul and Silas when prison walls, doors
and bars had yielded to the prayers of the
disciples. It was fitting to follow the ser-
mon of Dr. John. His audience, during a
lengthy discourse, evinced no symptom of
weariness, and were apparently most
deeply impressed. At the close mourners
were called: several presented themselves,
and one was converted.
Seme complaints were heard of lack of
transportation, but it is learned that Mr.
Friedman's horses were literally broken
down by the service, hence conclude that
the delays were only such as are incident
to large gatherings.
The nrospects of the meeting being a
success m every sense of the word are most
flattering. Capt. Atkins keeps an officer
on the ground, assuring perfect order.

About 7.30 p. le. officer White reported
that he had found a man lying on the side-
walk on avenue H, between Eighteenth
and Nineteenth streets, who was suffering
from a knife-wound in the abdomen. Offi-
cer Paschal repaired to the spot. The man
accused Henry Cook of having cut him.
The officer proceeded'to find Cook, arrest-
ed and took: him to the station,- whore,
from information received, the offi-
cer preferred a charge of assault
with intent to murder against
him. The wounded man was conveyed to
the hospital. The doctor who attended
him said he could not tell how serious the
wound is till to-day. The name of the man
was not learned, but he was recognized as
the shoemaker who plies his vocation on
the sidewalk corner Twentieth and Me-
chanic streets; the same man who was cut
some time ago bv falling upon a knife in
his pocket, having been shoved down by

THE COLORADO MATTER.
Ko Action by the (iovernor Probable
for Several Days Yet.
Dr. Rutherford, state health officer, re-
mained over Sunday in tho city, and was
seen at the health office of Dr. Haden.
Ho said notliuig in regard to the Colo-
rado to indicate what his recom-
mendation will be. or when the ves-
sel will be released from quarantine.
It was not for him to say, but the govern-
or, to whom it was his duty to report the
facts. The governor was not at present in
Austin, and will be absent till Wednesday,
From this it is inferred that nothing will
be done before Wednesday, and probablv
not till a day or two later. On the 29th
forty days will have elapsed since the Col-
orado touched at St. Thomas.
Where is Bagdad, La .' is a question in
geography that has puzzled members of
the board of health no little. An applica-
tion for vessels from Bagdad to enter was
gnuited. provided they have had no com-
munication with persons or things from
places quarantined against. It was ascer-
tained yesterday that it is a small place
on Calcasieu river, above Lake Charles,
and that a ferryboat plies daily between
Bagdad and tho town of Lake Charles.
If, therefore, vessels come under the resolu-
tion named, it is probable they will have
trouble in passing quarantine.
A member of the board, in seeking to
extend his knowledge of geography so as
embrace the latitude and longitude of Bag-
dad, balled upon Messrs. P. J. Willis &
Bro., from whom the application had
come, and was presented by Mr. Gold-
thwaite with the loan of a largo map of
tho state of Louisiana, which now graces
the walls of the health office. It fails to
disclose tlie whereabouts of the seaport of
Bagdad, but will be usefid, doubtless, in
h eating other obscure seaports in the Peli-
can slate, us demands upon the geographi-
cal lore of the board arise in future.

It seems to be about as useless to argue
with people who have the migratory
fever as with birds of passage. The dis-
astrous history of many who have left
Texas for Mexico and South America,
would constitute tales no less touching
than those told of Russian exiles to
Siberia; but thoy are left unwritten, and
probabJy would be unheeded by others if
^old. The Brownsville Democrat reports
the return of an individual from Mexico,
who wisely concluded to take the back
track in less than the usual time:
On the 11th of June there passed through
Brownsville a i>arty of emigrants, some
forty in number, from Comanche county,
Texas, en route to Tampico, Mexico. They
were visited by a number of our people
who endeavored to dissuade them from
going among a people whose mode of life,
language and habits were foreign to their
own, aud where land was inferior to our
own, and besought them to locate in this
vicinity. They were, however, deaf to all
argument, and with visions of a fortune
before them pushed on to Tampico. No-
thing more Was heard of the colony till
last Wednesday, when a cadaverous, rag-
ged, unkempt and hungry specimen of the
genus homo presented himself be-
fore consul Sutton, at Matamoros,
an<J managed to say that he was on his re-
turn home from "Tampico, and desired
enough money to carry him and his horse
over the ferry. Then it was that the
stranger proved to be one of the ill-starred
colony that two months ago crossed the
Rio Grando with such bright hopes and
fond expectations. He stated that several
others of the party were on their return
home and begging by the wayside. He told
a pitiful story—how one man was working
for $5 a month, and as soon as his month
was up he was to start on his return; how
others had been unable to procure work,
and bad suffered greatly in consequence.
He was transported to this side, where he
repeated his sorrows and received a suffi-
cient sum to carry him far on his journey.
We may expoct to see the remainder strag-
gling along soon, with sufficient of Tampi-
co to make life in Comanche county a

Now the writer knows for a fact, that

had the yellow fever about fifty years
ago, and, unfortunately for his posterity,

of the fever in him, aad must necessarily

I would not be willing to give his name,
for the reason that if the poor fellow

of years m a dormant state, only requir-

thorn to full life and vigor, viz: the wheat

that great trees from small seeds do

overshadow all surroundings. We
also know that great fires originate from
a small spark, which lies unseen and un-

NOTES AND OPINIONS.
Hon. T. A. Hendricks, in New York
Sun interview: "I think the demo-
cratic party will win, provided it is
united. It can not go on fighting and
wasting its strength by internal quar-
rels. It must be strong and united,
with a bold front, and with a candidate
for president whose record it is not
necessary to disown or explain away.
With such a candidate, for whom there
is no need to apologize, we will win,
and not otherwise."
Atlanta Constitution : The policy of
the Yazoo county (Mississippi) demo-
crats is not to be tolerated. How can
tl ic great democratic party of the union
g-i) before the country arguing in favor
of free elections, while the democrats
o?f Mississippi are enforcing mob law,
and deciding political contests before a
vote is cast? What argument can be
used against troops at the polls, while a
Mississippi mob warns a candidate not
to submit his claims to the suffrages of
National Republican: They are claim-
ing 2,000,000 population for Texas,
which would entitle her to fifteen con-
gressmen. She has six now, all demo-
cratic. But under this speculative in-
crease it is probable that two or three
would be returned under anything like
a fair vote. The western portion of the
state contains many Germans and not a
few Mexicans, nearly all of whom are
republicans. The democrats rely upon
their electioneering methods, however,
to utilize this additional nine mem-
bers for the increase of the strength of
the solid south.
Boston Herald: Brains, enterprise
and wealth are influential enough in any
community without a resort to threats,
either of sudden death or discharge
frjom employment. The idea that there
was any concerted plan to influence
voters by improper methods is absurd,
but here and there a zealous partisan un-
doubtedly overstepped the bounds of
propriety. As a rule, even in those
places whore the offense was charged,
the voters seem to have stood up for
their rights. The evidence taken
strengthens the argument in favor of su-
pervision by members of both parties,
while "fre "believe that the employment
of deputy marshals for service at elec-
tions is almost sure to be abused.
Charleston N<-w$ and, Courier: It is
high time for the south to make itself
heard, and in very plain language, in
regard to Mr. Samuel J. Tilden and his
assumed claims to the democratic nomi-
nation for the presidency in 1880. That
pertinacious gentleman, and the clique
of politicians who hare identified them-
selves with his fortunes, are certainty
pulling the wires in his interest more
vigorously just now than thev have ever
done. The democrats of the country
do not want Mr. Tilden as their candi-
date, and they are not going to allow
him to be forqeci upon them. Nobody
questions Mr. Tilden's adroitness as a
political manipulator. It is, indeed, his
only plau sable claim to consideration at
the hands of the national democrac}'.
It is admitted on all sides that the south
must furnish most of the electoral votes
by which it is hoped that the democratic
candidate for the presidency in 1880 will
win. The south desires only to see the
federal admiiijstration restored to the
constitutional methods of the fathers of
the republic. It cares nothing for the
advancement of." this or that Inan, and
its representatives in the national demo-
cratic convention will not be found hard
to please in the. .choice of a statesman
worthy to fill the chair of Washington
and Jefferson.- But they will not so far
disregard the democratic sentiment of
the southern states as to consent again
to the nomination of Mr. Tilden—a man
who was never either known or liked
by the southern people, and whose
name, justly or unjustly, has now be
come associated in their minds with
trickery, cowardice and disaster. Mr.
Tilden has had his opportunity and lost
it. The democrats of the south will de-
mand of their northern brethren that
they give us as their standard-bearer in
1880 a new maa and a stronger man.

How He Has Rn Fooled by His

Tliat He JIadc—Hayes a Fraud
and a Hypocrite— Anotlier Chap-
ter of Louisiana Rottenness.
Mr. Cassuaave, one of the members of
the Louisiana returning board, which
elected Mr. Bayes by throwing out 10,-
000 Tilden votes, has been in the city
for the last three weeks, endeavoring to
induce the beneficiaries of his fraud to
assist him in averting the financial rum
which threatens him. His companions
are all, he says, execution-proof, and the
debt of $6000 for defending the board
and keeping them out of tho peniten-
tiary, has fallen on him. He lias re-
lated to a correspondent of the Boston
Hurald how the administration has treat-
ed him, from which we make the follow-
when the criminal proceedings were
begun Anderson and Wells, against
whom the prosecution was especially di-
rected, employed Messrs. Cullom and
Castellanos, attorneys, to defend. I as-
sented to it, upon assurance of Mr. An-
derson, who showed me a letter, which
1 supposed written by secretary Sher-
man, to tho effect that funds would be
sent Uj defray all expenses incurred for
our defense." After the trial and acquit-
tal of Anderson, Messrs. Cullom and
Castellanos demanded their fee, and af-
ter repeated efforts to collcct it they
sued the board and got judgment; tlie
other members having nothing, my pro-
perty was seized and advertised for sale
by the sheriff to pay tho amount."
"The judgment was originally for

ing a balance of
" Do the other members of the board
refuse to pay this amount? "
" Well, they have failed to do it."
" Are they not holding fat offices?"
"Yes; Anderson, Wells, and Ivenner,
and all their family connections, num-
bering not less than forty persons, are
drawing money from the United States
Government, besides the stealings,
which, if what everybody says is true,
amount every month to as much as this
" Before coming here I called upon
Anderson and Kcnner, who refused to
pay anything. I went to Wells' office
frequently to see him, but could never
find him. He is difficult to find. See-
ing that I could get no assistance from
the other members, and being pressed
continuously for payment by the attor-
neys, who threatened to sell me out at
sheriff's sale if I did not pay speedily, I
thought I would come to Washington
and seek relief from those I had helped
into high and lucrative offices, which
they now hold. This is what brought
me here. I could get nothing out of the
officers in Louisiana, therefore I came to
try those higher up, but no less the crea-
tures of the returning board."
" How many appointments have An-
derson, Wells and Keller of their family
connections and friends in the New Or-
leans custom house ?"
" Not less than fifty, including sons,
sons-in-law, and sons' fathers in law and
their sons. To illustrate: There is An-
derson, deputy collector, salary $3000;
Anderson's son, clerk, salary $1400; Ben
Bloomlield (Anderson's son's father-in-
law), auditor, $2500; George L. Bloom-

!<oui:j Demaraise (friend of Anderson),
salary $2500; William R. Johnson,
(friend of Anderson), $1000, and Louis
E. Salles (also friend of Anderson),
$2000. (Mr. Salles has charge of the
dead-head and sinecure roll, which has
drawn from the treasury from $1500 to
$;!000 for each month since Anderson
and Wells have controlled the New Or-
leans custom house, and this fact must
be well known to the secretary of the
treasury.) Louis M. Kcnner, deputy
naval officer, salary $2500; a brother,
Alexander Kenner, clerk, $1000; an-
other brother, Dick Kenner, $900 per
annum. Wells is surveyor of the port

" Who have you seen about this mat-
ter of relieving you of paying this judg-
" I called on the president, in compa-
with Gen. Svphcr. the next day after
my arrival. He treated me courteously
but made no offer to relieve me, and re-
marked that he had nothing to do with
ii, but advised me to see Anderson, who
he thought would settle it. I also called
or. secretary MCtrary, who expressed
much sympathy for me, and said: ' If I
was able 1 would pay this judgment my-
self, but 1 am a poor man and live en-
tirely on my salary. It should be paid
at once.' I next saw Messrs. Shella-
barger and Wilson, to whom I explained
my case. They advised me to see as-
sistant secretary Hawley, which T did in
company with Gen. Sypher. Mr. Haw-
ley referred me to Sliellabarger, who as-
sured me, on the pramise of Mr. Haw-
ley, that the money would be raised on
tlie return of Mr. Sherman, who was
then in Maine and would be home in a
week. I waited and called on Mr. Sher-
man on his return, who received me
very cordially; I stated my case to him
and showed him a copy of the sheriff's
writ. He answered that he knew noth-
ing'about it, and tliat tho did not see why
Anderson didn't settle this matter;
but that the money ought to
be raised, and that he would
give me one hundred dollars, which he
attempted to take from his pocket, re-
marking at the same time: 'You go
and see some of the loading republicans
and collcct something from them.' My
reply to him was: ' I have been to see
the president and yourself, and 1 know
no other leading republicans—is that the
best you can do for me, Mr. Secretary?'
He answered: 'Tliat is all I can do; I
am anly here on a salary, and I can't
pay everything. * I then took my hat,
as I did so say ins: ' I thank you, sir;
tiiat amount woUl3 not pay my travel-
ing expenses to Washington.' Then I
left his office, disappointed and depressed
at the thought tliat I was going to be
sacrificed and ruined, while others were
being enriched in high officcs into which
they h id climbcd on tlie ladder I helped
to set up. 1 again sought the advice of
Mr. Shellabanrer. In my excited feel-
ings I said that I would expose the
whole matter of the returning board
proceedings and go home and pocket
the loss, He advised me not to ' throw
the handle after the pot,' but write a
letter, setting forth the facts in the case,
and await results for a few days. I
acted upon his advice and prepared a
letter, which I delivered to the president
and a copy to Mr. Sherman."
Washington, D. C., August 7, lb7.'i.—
Mr. President: I have the honor to invite
your attention to the following facts, upon
which I respectfully solicit such relief as
you may be able to offer me: In 1S72 I
was elected by the state senate of Louisi-
ana a member of the returning board of
that state. I did not desire or solicit the
office, and accepted it with great reluct
ance. In 1876 the grave and responsible
duty of determining the result of the elec-
tion for president of the United States de
volved upon the board. Its deliberations
were watched with profound solicitude by
the whole country, while the leaders of
two groat political parties hovered around
it, awaiting the result of its deliberations
with that intense anxiety only known to
expectants of the spoils of public office.
The board found for tho republicans, and
the democrats, disappointed and chagrined,
at once commenced criminal proceedings
against its members. Counsel were em-
ployed at a stipulated fee of five thousand
dollars, which Mr. Anderson assured me
would be paid out of funds to be sent from
Washington. At the conclusion of the
prosecution counsel demanded their fee,
which not being paid, they instituted suit,
and after a hearing in court, obtained
judgment against all the members of the
board. A writ of fieri facias, copy here-
with inclosed, was issued, directing the
sheriff to seize and sell sufficient property
of the defendants to satisfy the judgment
of I0(W0, less $1875. The sheriff, finding
no property belonging to Andarson, Wells
and Kenner, seized my property, and now
holds the same subject to sale under his

of the responsibility attaching to the offi-

I have uever enjoyed any of the fruits re-
suiting from its hndings, and in this con-
nection I respectfully remind you that I
hold no office under Vour administration,
and have derived no pecuniary benefits
whatsoever therefrom; but. on tho con-
trary1, I have sustained considerable loss in
my business on account of my identity
with the board. Messrs. Anderson, Wells
and Kenner, the other three members, and
their numerous family connections, are en-
joying lucrative positions in the employ of
I protest against being mulct for the
cost of the criminal proceedings against

the honor and emoluments resulting from
its decision. It is neither just nor honor-

ficiaries of our acts to discharge these

I called upon Mr. Sherman yesterday
and he pronerod me a contribution of $100
as the only relief he could offer me, which
I was compelled to decline out of respect
for the great finance minister of our gov-
ernment. I expect to take my departure
for Louisiana in a few days, and if any
arrangement can be made of this matter
to offer me relief, to which, under these
circumstances. I believe I am justly and
honorably entitled, I will be under obliga-
tions to those through whose influence it
may be accomplished. I am, very respect-
fully, G. Cabanave.
Hon. John Sherman, Secretary of the
Treasury—Dear Sir: I herewith inclose
you a copy of an unofficial letter addressed
to tho president. Very respectfully,
G. C as an ave.
Washington, D. C., August 7, 1879.
"In a few hours after the delivery of
this letter," he continued, "I was in-
formed tliat $500 had been sent to col-
lector Badjjer at New Orleans, to apply
on payment of the judgment, and tliat
more "Would be sent. The next day I
was told that $500 more had been for-
warded. to be applied in the same man-
ner, which I have since learned is not
correct. The second installment of $500
was not sent. On the morning of the
13th I received this d;spatch from home:
New Obleans, La., Aug. 12, i860.—Mr.
t'asanave, Washington, D. C.: Keeper at
the stable; contents advertised to be sold
Saturday, 16th; what am I to do!
" This alarmed me, and I went at once
with the dispatch to Messrs. Shellabnr-
ger and Wilson, and appealed to them
to see secretary Sherman immediately
and get a definite answer, whether re-
lief would be given me; and if so, when,
as the time set for the sale was then only
three days off; for if no relief was to be
expected from the administration, I
would go home at once and try to save
my property. In a few hours this dis-
patch was handed me by Mr. Shellabar-
ger, which he asked mc to send, and I
did so at my own expense:
Washington, D. C., Aug. 13. 1879—

change Alley, near Customhouse street:

to dispose of his property, I will wait till
January 1. E. North Culx.cm.
" After reading this dispatch, I said
to Mr. Shellabarger that I desired the
matter definitely settled, so that I could
be relieved, and my property released
from the custody of the sheriff. Mr.
Shellabarger wrote this substantially on
the back of the teleeram. inclosed it in
an envelope, and 1 carried it to Mr.
Sherman. In about an hour after I
called on Mr. Shellabarger to learn if he
had received any answer. He said:
'Yes; Webb Haves has just been here,
and said that a detective reported that
there was fraud and collusion in this
matter, and tliat the whole thing was
dropped, and that I should go to see
the president.' This statement over-
whelmed me with surprise. I was com-
pletely dumbfounded. I finally said
that 1 would go to see the president,
if Mr. Shellabarger would give me a
note to him, saying that he desired to
see me. He gave me this card:
I recommend Casanave to call on the
president, to give him the opportunity to
speak to Casanave about the fraud that
the detective spoke about, provided the
president so desires. s. S.
" I called at the white house and
learned that the president had gone for
the day. This thing worried me terri-
bly, and I went to my room thinking
about Hayes charging me with fraud
and collusion. Fraud and collusion for
$0000, and even that amount, if raised,
would not be paid to me. I might have
made $50,000 once if I had committed a
fraud, and I think it would have been
in the interest of the country and good
morals if I had taken the money; for
not doing so I have been pronounced a
"Sleeping on the matter, I concluded
that if I did not want to lose my charac-
ter, as well as my property, I had better
quit the company of Mr. Hayes aud his
secretary of the treasury. I determined
to return home at once, and made pre-
parations to do so, but before doing so I
concluded to call once more on Mr.
Shellabarger. I did so, and stated my
grievances again, including the fraud
story, which I denounced as false and
infamous. He went to tho secretary
again, and in a little while returned and
handed me this dispatch, which I signed
and sent to Mr. Cullom:

posited $1250 to Cullom's credit in

telegraphed Cullom to draw for that
amount. About 2 o'clock I received
this telegram from my brother:

Casanave, Washington, D. C.: All pro-
ceedings stopped until January 1.
" Here ends the first chapter."
"Then, if I understand you correctly,
the administration has paid oa this judg-
ment $1750 ?"
" Yes, sir."
" How much still remains ?"
" The balance of the judgment is
$1375, besides the costs of court and the
sheriff's costs, which will amount, per-
haps, to $1000 more."

involving the loss of time and injured
eyesight, and compelled to defray my
ownexpenses and receiving no per diem),
for refusing to swear falsely about the
Louisiana returns, an Ohio man told me
that ' Hayes was the damndest fraud
and hypocrite living.' This gentleman
seems to have known him better than I
did. If, however, the same remark
was made to me now, I could express a
" When do you expect to return to
your home in Louisiana? "
•' I hope to shake the dust of Wash-
ington from my feet within the next
twenty-four hours, and not to return un-
til this administration, which betraved
the republican party of my state, shall
have terminated its infamous exist;
Boston Traveller: Boston furnishes a
good many voters, but the strength of
the republican party is elsewhere. A
conservative, anti-temperance nomina
tion may be popular in the city, but the
gain will be set off by the hostility or
luke warmness of the active and earnest
republicans of the country. In six
large cities Gen. Butler's majority was
nearly 9000 votes, while in all the other
considerable cities, Worcester excepted,
he was only slightly in the minority.
The votes of the country towns over-
came these city majorities and elected
Thomas Talbot with 25,000 votes to
spare. It goes without saying, that any
ticket and platform which shall weaken
the party strength in the rural districts
will strike at the very stronghold of re-
publicanism in Massachusetts. Let the
Boston managers make a note of it.

Houston, August 20.—Quarantine
matters h&vo been so all«ab6orbing here
for the past little while as to prevent
your correspondent from having an in-
tjivi?w with the "great commoner of
the coast," Hon. Cha*. Stewart, with a
view of learning his opinion of the re-
cently discovered scheme to parcel out
offices among them-elves, Col. Stewart
being assigned to Mills's seat in congress,
while Mills was booked for the office of
chief executive of the state.
While your reporter was grieving yes-
terday that he had " temporarily lost his
occupation " pending the deliberations
of governor Roberts over the quarantine
matters, he encountered Col. Stewart,
who, in obedience to the Sunday law,
was wending his way to church, with
thoughts foreign to matters politic, until
the reporter opened the valve between
church and state with an interviewer's
crowbar, and asked: "Is it true, as
quoted by a north Texas corre-
spondent "of the News, that you
are a party to the alleged grand distri-
bution of offices, state and national?"
"Pshaw! No, sir. I never read of
such an arrangement until I read it in
the News. I Know nothing about it."
" Then you are not going to congress
"On that subject no man has any
right to speak for me. 1 have not au-
thorized any one to do so, and have not
•riven utterance to any sentiments upon
"Well, what do you think of the re-
"I do not believe any ' agreement'
has been made, and I don't believe there
is any truth in the matter."
Among Col. Stewart's friends the
matter of his taking stock in the "grand
distribution " is disbelieved.
When mayor Burke returned from
New York, whitlier he had gone to try
and compromise the city's bonded debt,
he reported to the council that he
thought the compromise could be effect-
ed at 50 cents on the dollar for the mar-
ket-house bonds, and cents on other
classes of bonds.
His report was forwarded to New
York, and a meeting of bondholders
was called to act upon it. In the mean-
time the council met last Friday, and
decided that the city could only com-
promise at 25 cents on all classes of
This morning the following letter
was received by the city secretary and
New York. August 19.—John Reich-
man, secretary and treasurer, Houston,
Texas: Dear sir—I am authorized to
report to you and through you to the
city of Houston, viz: That in pursuance
to a printed report, a copy of which you
have already been sent, a meeting of
Houston bondholders convened at the
office of A. W. Beasley and Co., 12
Wall street, New York, on Saturday,
the 16th of August. Upon examination
it was aicertaincd that over $800,000 of
the bonded debt of your city was repre-
sented by actual holders, either in per-
son or by agent. The report of your
honorable mayor made to the city board
upon his return from New York, as set
forth in the published proceedings of
your board and appearing in the Telegram
of July 23, was before the meeting and
was fully discussed, and after due and
careful consideration it was decided by
the meeting that the bondholders do not
accept the settlement as recommended
by the mayor in his said report, and
furthermore that they are opposed to
any unfair discrimination of one class of
bonds over another equally legal.
It was further determined as tho sense
of the meeting that the bondholders
should hereafter work together, and to
this end that meetings of said bondhold-
ers should from time to time be held in
New York for the purpose of co-opera-
I was empowered and directed to cor-
respond with the proper authorities of
your city, and to inform them of the
character of the proceedings had at this
meeting. We adjourned to meet again
By virtue of the authority conferred
on me, we do hereby submit to you the
foregoing statement of proceedings, and
request that you will officially present
the same. Yours very respectfully,
4- Vt. Beasley.
Since the bondholders have refused to
receive 50 and §3$ cents on the dollar,
it is scarcely known what they will;
think or say when they receive the
magnanimous proposition offering

(To the News.1
Troupe, Aug. 24.—I notice in your
paper of the 21st a communication from
one Radeliffe Bill, of Grand Rock, cast-
ing reproach upon my character; I
therefore beg space for this reply to the
uncalled-for statement. I will, to make
a long story short, say I am known to
many Texans. who certainly did not be-
lieve the calumny.
I did smoke good cigars, and they are
paid for. I never played a game of bil-
liards in my life, much less in Round
Rock, and I do not owe a nickel to any
saloon-keeper in that town. As to my
hotel bill, a balance is yet due; and if
that is a disgrace, where will you find
many honest men?
As to the rubber stamp agency, the
young man bought the agency and was
furnished with an outfit at cost; if he
don't work it will be a poor investment,
but not my fault. Mr. James never
gave me an agency.
As to my beating people in Dallas, I
answer tliat I never was in that city.
Radeliffe Bill should acknowledge
that he has misrepresented me, butthofe
who know him will not believe him..
Very respectfully, R. H. Levt.
