THE CLEVELAND SCANDAL.
A Defense of the Democratic riislilen
Buffalo, Aug. 12. The Courier
prints a review of the Cleveland
scandal. It says that the main
charge brought by the Buffalo Tele
graph is false in all essential partic
ulars. "The slanderous story,'' says
the Courier, "accuses Gov. Cleveland
of seduction, abduction and cruelty.
Evidence can be produced to disprove
each, one of these charges. There
was no seduction, and this statement
is not based on any quibble as to the
fact that the woman in the case was
not a young girl, but a widow. There
was no abduction. The separation of
the mother and her child by the re
moval of the former to an inebriate
asylum, told with so much cheap pa
thos, was the act of the authorities
of the Buffalo orphan asylum, taken
mainly in the interest of the latter.
The infant had been entrusted to the
care of the orphan asylum and then
withdrawn by the mother, and the
authorities interfered and took pos
session of the child again only when
informed that it was in danger.
There was no cruelty. The mother
was in a state of intoxication and she
was removed lawfully and with no
more force than was necessary.
There was no such agreement in the
settlement of the case as has been
reported. Every other accusation
made in the Telegraph lacks definite
ness." As no dates are given the Courier
says no clue can be found for an in
vestigation of the charge that Cleve
land spent one Sunday with three
gentlemen friends and four women
in a drunken orgy in Albany. The
story that Cleveland once fought over
a woman in a saloon is disposed of
by the statement that it was founded
on the faot that the Democratic can
didate indulged in a little skylarking
at a dinner where no women were
present. The charges of drunken
ness made by Rev. Geo. H. Ball are
called by the Courier "wicked, ma
licious lies." It adds that Cleveland's
reputation for sobriety is well known
to the people of Buffalo, and the fact
that he has attended to his duties as
governor proves that he is not a
drunkard. In conclusion the Courier
protests against the introduction of
personal scandal into a presidential
New Yobk, Aug. 12. The Sun
gives prominence to the views of a
veteran lawyer concerning the de
fense set up by the Independents and
Democrats in Cleveland's scandal
case. He says, referring to the at
tempts to palliate the offense by cit
ing the examples of Alexander Ham
ilton and Genral Jackson, that "Ham
ilton never offered himself for the
suffrages of the people after publish
ing his admission of licentiousness
with Barry Moore's wife. All Amer
ica commended the bravery of Ham
ilton's defense, as all England ap
E lauded the Prince of "Wales when
e testified as co-respondent in Lady
Mordaunfs divorce case. But Cleve
land has not made this brave defense.
Perhaps he will in his letter of ac
ceptance. I am. ashamed of Demo
cratic editors defaming Jackson in
order to make a defense for Cleve
land. Jackson's case, even according
to Pederal papers of that day, where
in they called him a bigamist and
adulterer, had no elements of per
sonal dishonor. If Cleveland follows
the example of Hamilton and tells
the truth, instead of asking other
people to tell it for him, "people may
pardon and condone the offense, but
I admit not otherwise."
Washington, Aug. 12. The Cap
ital, a very earnest Cleveland organ,
makes the following recommendatien:
Now, the CapitaVs advice to the gov
ernor is, stop all this miserable gab
ble by getting married. We do not
call upon him to act hastily in this
matter. We do not understand that
he has obligated himself to any par
ticular woman, or that he is being
pursued by any angry relatives carry
ing firearms. He can take his own
time, select a wife who will suit him
and be fitted to occupy the position
of the first lady of the land, and then
completely qualify himself for that
high station to which he is likely to
be eleoted this year.
John Kelly Makes Explanation.
New Yobk, Aug. 13. Eeplying to
a recent letter, John Kelly writes:
"Firat, it is said, that I voted against
Tilden and Hendricks, in 1876. That
is untrue. Myself and those associ
ated with me did our best to elect
Tilden and Hendricks, and what oc
curred afterward could not be laid to
us. The position of the party in the
county and state at present stands in
this way: The laboring class, on
whom Tilden relied mainly for sup-
gort, are now pronounced against
leveland, and it will be difficult for
us to convince them that their condi
tion would be improved by the elec
tion of this gentleman. We will do
what can be done to convince these
people, and hope and expect to be
A lad named. Sanford Fuqua, aged
15 years, was drowned in the Nestuc
ca .fiver, Tillamook county, on the
10th inst, while bathing. A corre
spondent (William L. Parmer) sends
the following particulars of the sad
affair: "There were four of us boys
bathing in the river; I, being the
oldest one of the crowd, was hunting
the deep parts of the water to warn
the boys of dangerous places, when
Sanford Puqua got into the deep wa
ter and sank. Seeing the danger, I
plunged in and caught hold of his
left hand. Quiok as a flash he
grasped my right wrist with his right
hand. Struggling desperately and
out of breath we separated for life.
I succeeded in getting hold of the
dead branches of an elder top that
was lying in the edge of the water.
Elmer Smith .ran ashore to get a pole
to reach to the drowning boy, but,
unfortunately, nothing was in reach,
so the poor fellow perished even be
fore I could get ashore. A boat was
afhand, and with the aid of a long
alder branch, we recovered the body.
All efforts to restore life were resort
d;fc bat in vain,1'
J GREELY INTERVIEWED.
Portsmouth, N. IL, Aug. 13. Ear
ly this morning Coronel Kent obtain
ed an interview with Lieutenant
Greely, who admitted that he had
Henry shot by military execution on
the Cth of June. As early as March
it was suspected that Henry was steal
ing the limited food apportioned out
to the burvhors, and this fact being
finally and positively ascertained,
Lieutenant Greely had thereafter
hard work to protect the man's life.
It became necessary, in order to keep
up discipline, to inform Henry that
he would be shot it the practice was
continued, and that a similar fate
would be meted out to any other
member of the party detected in
like crime. If Henry had been per
mitted to continue his stealing unmo
lested the remainder of the party
would surely have starved to death
and Henry alone survived. After
wards, and in spite of these warnings,
Henry was again detected stealing
provisions, among tho food taken be
ing two pounds of bacon, eating so
much that it made him sick. Search
was then instituted. When found
Henry had, among other articles sto
len and secreted, a pair of seal skin
boots which had belonged to the
hunter of the party. Lieutenant
Greely, was therefore forced, in order
to maintain military discipline and
protectSthe lives of his other com
rades, to issue a written order that
Henry bo shot, which order was car
ried into effect June 6.
As to the alleged cannibalism, Gree
ly says if there was anything of that
kind it must have been an individual
act, and not general. Nothing of the
kind, however, came under Greely's
Sergeant Brainard, who is in tho
hospital at the navy yard, confirms
Greely's statement. More than a
week ago Lieutenant Greely forward
ed to the secretary of war a detailed
report of Henry's execution, and upon
proper representations to Secretary
Chandler a court of inquiry will un
doubtedly be ordered.
New Yobk, Aug. 13. Yesterday
the officers and men of the Alert, the
Thetis and tho Bear refused to say J
anything for publication about the'
sufferings of thoGreely party. It is j
cannibalism at Cape Sabin, has some
foundation of fact A gentleman
connected with the relief expedition,
who did not wish his name to be used,
said the opinion among officers was
that if cannibalism was resorted to it
was only when it was either that or
death. "Any one can easily under
stand," said this gentleman, "that
men who had been living for months
on a few shrimps per day are not ex
actly in their right minds. When
Greely was found the party were
more or less out of their heads; they
had suffered so much from hunger
and exposure, that a collapse was very
near. It is oasy to see that for
months the dominant and only idea
in the minds of these men was how
to get food. They probably dreamed
and thought of nothing else. They
cannot be blamed ior eating what
ever they could find
The Hear was open for visitors to
day. The iron tank in which the bod
ies of tho six victims have been pre
served was on deck. It is four and a
half feet long by twenty inches wide,
and the bodies of the men it admit
ted were merely skin and bones.
Commander Schley pronounced
the remarkable interview with him
published yesterday a lie.
New York, Aug. 13. The Times
publishes additional facts concerning
its horrible story of yesterday. There
is not much, however, to be added, ex
cept confirmation of sailors. All were
sworn to secrecy by terrible oaths,
which is admitted by them now. The
secrets of those awful days are locked
in the hearts of tho little handful of
survivors, and if they bo told, will
come from the officers of the Thdis
and the Bear, who discovered the
survivors and cared for tho remains of
the dead. The condition of these re
mains proved unmistakably that life
has been sustained in the few left on
the flesh of the dead.
It is now known that tho horrible
story of cannibalism was in two or
three newspaper offices yesterday, and
in evening paper offices on Monday
afternoon, where, in the interest of
civilization, it was suppressed. The
story, wild and improbable as it
seemed at first, is, without tho slight
est doubt, true, and it is believed that
all has not been told.
