San Francisco, Oct. 21—C. I*. Hunt-
ington, when shown the dispatch from
Washington to the effect that the gov-
ernment directors of the Union Pacific
road had made a report to the Secre-
tary of the Interior, recommending
that the attorney general shall, im-
mediately after the maturity of any
portion of the debt to the government
from cither the Union or Central Par
ciflc, institute proceedings for the pro-
lection and foreclosure of the lien of
the United States on tho roads from
Omaha to Ogden, and from Ogden to
Sacramento, and thence to San Jose,
"I doubt very much if tho directors
have made a report of the character
outlined in the dispatch. I ain in-
clined to think there is cot anything
in the story the telegram contains.

Chicago, Oct. 21.—The intricues,

American statecraft are revealed in

Forty Years in the House, Senate and
Cabinet," just published In this city.

clearly in the work M ft WDOlO.
Owing to the close association of Mr.
Sherman and James A. Garfield, the
criticism of the nomination of the
latter for president of the United
States is perhaps one of the most
striking features of the book. The au-
thor, while carefully avoiding a direct
charge of treachery on the part of tho
ex-president, very .significantly makes
it plain that Mr. Garfield was noalii
natcd at a convention to which hemdu
gone as the trusted leader of the Slier-
man forces. After showing by the
publication of private letters, covering
u period of years of close political and
personal association, that Mr. Garfield
was, in reality, his political protege,
Mr. Sherman gives in detail the his-
tory of the national convention of
1880. Following the account of his
own .struggle for the nomination, he j l
"In time, I becamo thoroughly ad-
vised of what occurred at the Chicago
convention, and had become entirely
reconciled to tiie result, though fre-
quently afterwards I heard incidents
ami details which occasioned me great
pain, and which seemed to establish
the want of sincerity on the part of
some of the delegates, and tended to
show that for some time before the
meeting ofythe convention the muni-
nation of General Garfield had been
agreed upon. '
The sting felt by Garfield's defection
in 1880 is inadvertently shown bv a
sentiment expressed during the discus-
sion of the national convention of
18112, where the senator remarks:
"From later developments I became
satisfied that Harrison could not be
elected, that l'latt and u powerful
New York"influence would defeat him
if nominated. I therefore preferred
the nomination of a new man, such as
William McKinley, but he had com-
mitted himself to Harrison, and, ac-
cording to my code of honor, could not
accept a nomination even if tendered
Again the author reverts to the
Chicago convention in discussing the
character of President Garfield. Of
his personality and eloquence he
speaks in the highest terms. His will
power, he says, was not up to his per-
sonal magnetism. He adds that his
opinion changed easily. In this
connection he said: "When 1 proposed
to him to be a delegatc-at-largo to the
Chicago convention, he no doubt
meant in good faith to support my
Some of tho political scheming that
again resulted in the defeat of the
Ohio statesman in the national con-
vention of iHhs and brought about the
nomination of ex-President Harrison
can easily be read between the lines
in that part of the work devoted to
this struggle. In discussing the re
that state, ind between Saturday
night, when the nomination seemed
certain to go to Sherman, and Monday
morning, when the tide turned in
favor of Harrison, a corrupt bargain
was made in the interests of the
latter, which secured him the support
of New York and gave him the nom-
ination. Continuing the author states
in fairness to the ex-President: "Hut
it is to the credit of General Harrison
to say that if the reputed bargain
was made it was without his consent
at the time
course, if tke government through
its proper authorities makes up its
mind that it will take possession of
the two roads, and assume their other
indebtedness, well and good. No one
could prevent it from so doing, and I
for one would not prevent it.
"l>y this statement I mean that un-
less some settlement of the debt is ar-
ranged through an extension of time
of payment, the Central Pacific will
not be able to pay the debt when it
matures. At the maturity of the debt,
and a failure to make payment, the
government can step in and take the
road with its remaining indebtedness.
It will, of course, Uave to provide for
REVIEW OF BU81NE SS.
rents of the Week Were Promising in
Nkw York, Oct. 21.—Dun's review
says: Failures for October thus far
cover liabilities of $3,91^,599, of which
$1,530,!? )') were of manufacturing, and
$2* 1 S5,r 31 of trading concerns. Fail-
ures for the week have been 203 in the
United States against "53 last year,
and 46 in Canada against 43 last year.
The events of the week are promis-
ing in nature, though the speculative
markets are not entirely encouraging.
The great advance in cotton so de-
ranged exports that shipments of gold
were for a time apprehended, but the
break in the market indicates that the
natural movement of the product may
soon be restored. The halting of de-
mand and moderate yielding of prices
in the great industrial market shows
that a season of reasonable attention
to natural conditions has arrived, and
gives hope that the future demand
will be more nearly proportioned to
actual consumption. The week has
brought a little further decline in iron
and steel products, in hides and
leather, and a more yielding tone in
boots and shoes

that in 1893 he did not consider Harri-
son a strong candidate. To his cold
and abrupt manner, he attributes his
unpeculiarity at that time.
When it was remember d that Blaine
was also a candidate for the presiden-
cy before the convention that nomin-
ated Garfield, the significance of the
following explanation oil the part of
Senator Sherman of why he was not
reappointed by President Gartield as
secretary of the treasury is readily un-
derstood: "In the latter part of No-
vember, 1880. General Garfield came to
Washington and called upon Mr.
Blaine, who, it was understood, was
to be secretary of state, Garfiold
came to my house directly from
Blaine's and informed me lie had ten-
dered that otHco to Blaine and that it
was accepted. He said Blaine thought
it would not be politic to continue me
as secretary of the treasury, as it
would be regarded us ati unfriendly
discrimination by other members of
llayes' cabinet. I promptly replied
that I agreed with the opinion of
Blaine, and was a candidate for the

that everything was not right in

Last night, when he was served with

that they talked freely with me," said
he. "At first I was surprised that
such religious young men should be

men. I learned from those
two boys themselves that they
were taking girls to the
church every night. I often heard
them tell of the fun thev had there
and of the different girls who ac-
companied them. I know myself
of five girls who used to go to
the church at night with these boys.
The people in the mission would be
very much surprised if they knew
who the girls were. They all belong
to respectable families, and the worst
of it all is that the parents never
