Detroit, Nov. 14. The attention of
General K. A. Alger was called to the
reference to htm in the second volume of
Senator Sherman's memoirs, the proof
sheets of which have been sent to var
ious newspapers throughout the country.
General Alger said :
'I am very much surprised that Sena
tor Sherman, laboring under the disap
pointment of not receiving a nomination
should connect my name with it. If he
knows anything about the matter, he
knows his charges against me are with
out foundation. There never was a time
when his combined vote, and mine
would have nominated him in 18S8. My
request to my friends was that in case
my nomination was not possible, they
should cast their votes for General Har
rison, believing that a soldier shouid be
nominated. 1 aBked them as a second
choice to support Senator Sherman. If
any money was used, which I do not be
lieve, to purchase votes' from the South,
it was against my positive instructions,
and no bill of the kind' has ever been
presented to me or paid by me."
" The quotations from Senator Sher
man's second volume to which General
Alger excepts are those in which Mr.
Sherman, in referring to the contest;for
the ' presidential nomination of 1888,
"I believe, and had, I though, conclu
sive proof that friends of General Alger
substantially purchased the votes of
many delegates from the Southern states
who had been instructed in their con
ventions to vote for me."
Senator Sherman, in this volume,
dwells upon the history of his party in
the Hayes cabinet and gives a pretty
complete history of the famous contro
versy between Blaine and Conkling
which was a momentous event in the
political history of the next few yeare.
It resulted, he says, in the nomination
and election to the office of vice-president
of Chester A. Arthur, and so re
sulted in putting into the office of presi
dent the very man whom a few years be
fore in 1878 Senator Sherman, as a
member of the Hayes cabinet, had re
moved from the office of collector of the
port of New York for "good cause." In
speaking of the contest for the nomina
tion oi loss, -Mr. snerman says be was
convinced that Blaine was not a candi
date and that he was confident that he
was to be nominated. He adds:
"On Monday, June 25, 1 did not anti
cipate a change on the first ballot from
the last one on Saturday. I did expect
from my dispatches that the nomination
wnnM lm mnrlA that riav in mv favnr'
.bat as the result proved, an arrangement
bad been made on Saturday that prac
tically secured ine nomination oi Harri
son. From the best information I could
gather, I have no hesitation in express
ing the opinion that I was defeated for
the nomination by New York.
"I believed then, as now, that one of
the delegates from New York practically
controlled the whole delegation, and that
a corrupt bargain was made on Sunday
which transferred the great body of the
vote of New York to General Harrison
and led to his nomination. It is to the
credit of General Harrison to say that if
the reputed bargain was made, it was
made without his consent at that time,
.nor did he carry it into execution.

shall see that you (Armenians) dou't get

Turks believe their days are numbered,
and are, therefore, determined to exter

before they themselves have been final
