A THRIFTY REFORMER.
Evidence that St. John vas in the Political
Des Moines, la., Jan. 3. The fol
lowing letter from J. S. Clarkson, edi
tor of the State Register and Iowa
member of the Bepublican national
committee was sent by him to tho
Chicago Tribune to-night:
Des Moines, la., Jan. 8, 18S3.
Editor Chicago Tribune--In re
ply to your direct inquiry if I know
personally as to whether or not St.
John offered to withdraw as a candi
date for president for a money consid
eration, I can answer now only as to
tho fact without yet being at liberty
to make public the details. To my
knowledge he did have overtures
made through a friend from his own
state, by which he offered, if paid
S25.000 in cash, to withdraw as a can
didate altogether, or to stay in the
field and "feather" his speeches, as it
was put in tho Kansas phrase, to the
help of the Bepublicans. He was
asked, in order to prove the sincerity
of his offer, to withdraw from Ohio
the last week before the October elec
tion in that state. He did this, under
the plea that he said he would give,
of getting a sore throat, aud with the
friend I have mentioned, went first to
Pittsburg, next to Philadelphia, and
finally to New York, where lie hoped
to meet some one on tho part of the
Eepublican national committee, who
would be ready to make tho deal and
pav the cash.
On tho 29th of October, through
his friend, in a letter still in existence,
he makes a claim for what is alleged
to havo been earned by him in getting
a sore throat in Ohio, one week, for
the benefit of tho Republican party.
This letter and other facts of detail,.
which -will convince any fair-minded
person of tho real character of St
John and show to the country what a
thrifty Christian be is, will bo given
to the press whenever he shall ask and
porsnade bis friend, who was the
medium of his overtures, to give his
consent to have them made public.
I may add that neither the national
committee or any ono acting for it
ever made an overturo or proposition
nf -mv l-ind fn Rf Tnlin All tlirif it.Hil
was to listen and discuss the oppor- J
tunnies ana propositions maue to it
through the medium which he em
ployed to reach it Several other
members of the national committee
and some other gentlemen connected
with the Ohio campaign had frequent j
conversations witu itns irienu or. ot.
John and are as conversant with the
facts and details of it as myself. They
know that St John's friend was in
constant telegraphic and frequent
personal consultation with him, and
that things which were demanded of
St John as to his movements in Ohio
were pledged by that friend and car
ried out by St. John. In many ways
ample evidence was thus afforded us,
including tho exchange of telegraphic
correspondence between them and
shown to several persons, proving
that this friend was acting with St
John and under his authority. One
other person is in possession of more
written evidence than I havo.
J. S. CliAEKSON.
A gentleman from Cathlamet re
ports that a terrible accident occur
red there on Sunday. A two-vear-old
son of David West was amusing him
self by playing with some bottles in
tho upper portion of tho house.
Suddenly Mrs. West heard a heavy
fall and hurried up-stairs to see what
tho trouble was. To her horror she
saw that the blood was fairly spout
ing from tho jugular vein of her child.
He had fallen on top of one of the
bottles and it had broken, and the
jagged glass had cut a great hole in
his neck, through which he was rap
idly bleeding to death. The horrified
mother caught tho unfortunate child
in hor arms and endeavored to stanch
tho flow from the wound, but all in
vain, as inside, of five minutes his
life blood was all drained, and he
died quietly in her arms. The par
ents are inconsolable over their loss
and it has cast a gloom over the en

"Yes, madam,'' said the Dominie.

please, and half a slice of toast That

The poor man preached an awfully
dry sermon, -which put his hearers to
sleep. But why should a minister
have dyspepsia as long as Brown's Iron
Bitters is to be had at the drug

THE REMARKAKLK STORY TOLD P.Y
A NORWEGIAN CAPTAIN.
Capt Laarscn, of the Norwegian
bark Firga, which is now at the So-ble-street
wharr discharging her car
go, says a Philadelphia telegram, told
the following story of his trip to this
port to a Philadelphia Times reporter
teday: "Wc were in latitude VJ'
north, and longitude -15 west, within
perhaps 350 miles of the eastern coast
of Newfoundland when we sighted
an iceberg. The weather had been
foggy aud we had been creeping
along under short canvas. Suddenly
a mountain of ice loomed up and we
drifted toward it The iceberg was
as clear as crystal, with the exception
of a great dark mass in its center, a
fathom or so above the water's edge.
From a cleft in the side of the berg a
slender column of vapor ascended.
I at once directed my binocular glass
es upon the crystal mass, and discov
ered that the black blotch in tho
center was moving. Soon it could
plainly he seen with the naked eye
and my men became greatly excited,
la half an hour we were near enough
to got at the truth, and you may
scarcely credit it, but that iceberg
was just swarming with seals. There
must have been S20.000 worth of seal
skins in that berg. The vapor that
came from the top of the iceberg was
caused by their breathing. "Without
exaggeration, I think there wero be
tween two and three hundred seals
there. The borg was evidently hol
low, and the water we could see the
seals plunge into every now and then
was the ocean. The wall of ice that
separated us from tho seals appeared
to be but a few feet thick, and I think
it had only been there a short time.
Very likely it formed after the seals
were there, for it is not probablo that
they would come up in such numbers
from below and voluntarily make a
Dlace like that their homo. Thev no
doubt gathered there from different I
parts of a big floe, and had been!
floating around for months, unablo to I
change their quarters. Aftor sailing!
aronnd the berg without finding an I
opening, we hove the bark to and lay !
off that iceberg as long as we dared, j
hoping that it would split or crack in '
some manner to give us a chance to )
get at tho seals; but nothing hap-'
pened, and we had to sail away."
JI0ST DELIBERATE SUICIDE.
Some time since a German named'
Schroder bought a place abont a mile!
nnd a half from Clackamas station.
He was an intelligent, well educated
man, about 30 years of ago, who trav
eled abont the country a great deal,
and at times made his homo at his
place. Yesterday some of tho resi-1
dents in the vicinitv, passing near !
his cabin, which is situated in a sc-j
eluded place, noticed a black flag
iiutiuii iiuui it, uiiu uu uiug utxiri
saw a notice fastened to the door,i
stating that the occupant had com-!
niitted suicide. On entering the!
n m' . -, -'
body of Schroder was found. He
had shot himself with a pistol, aud as
was found from documents on the
table had been dead two weeks. He
had made a will and left instructions
in regard to tho disposition of his
body, and also a statement of the
causes of his putting an end to him
self. He had beon troubled with
some disease of the eyes, and had
lost the sight of ono ot them, and was
expecting to loso tho other, nnd did
not care to live bereft of sight. He
had dug his grave on his place and
directions wero given whero to find
it He ordered that his body bo
buried in this place, and in another
place bequeathed it to tho medical
fraternity, and requested that some
German physician take out his eyes
and examine them and find out what
it was that ailed them. Ho stated
that he hid bought this place to die
on, and on one sheet of his paper was
written, "In twenty minutes more tho
deed must be done' From the state
ment of his affairs it appears that
Schroder owned some property in
this city, and had several hundred
dollars in one of the banks here;
also some property at Coos bay.
This is certainly ono of the most
deliberate and pre-determined cases
of suicide on record. The only thing
that would lead one to infer that
Schroder was not in possession of all
his faculties and perfectly sano when
he committed tho deed is tho fact of
his having dug his own grave and
left orders to be buried in it, and
then bequeathing his body to the
medical fraternity. Ho was buried
yesterday in the grave ho had dug,
and as his neighbors laid him away,
thoy doubtless wondered what could
have been the man's feelings when he
was digging it Oregoman, 13.
