How Ih<- Ch.-x'nr Commander Brought Secretary Stanton to Terms—Triumphant ViinUpo Shrewdness — General IIuMiT'ii Force IMl of IS7,". (rOPVRlCJIT, 1S91.1 A gcnllemnn of less than medium Stature s;:t in the smoking-car of the Congressional limited express train,' running between New- York and Washington,.on January 12. He had bright black eyes and was of slender physique. He wove a sku]i-cap ajnd his lap was filled.with newspapers. After reading- all the New York evening' papers he crossed his leg's, and opened a novel. It evidently proved uninteresting-, for lie finally closed it, throw it into a seat at his side, nnd began conversation with a friend on Ids left. He had a remarkable flow of language, and lie was full of reminiscences. His gestures were quick, nervous find illustrative. Gradually the conversation drifted back to the war. The slender gentleman, although boyish in appearance, and wearing a tiny "black mustache, had been an officer in the array of the James. He was a great admirer of General Benjamin F. Butler. He asserted that the General was one of the most remarkable commanders of the age, and cited incidents of his career in proof of his assertion. All were well worth relating. One, however, impressed itself upon the mind of his listener, and is given from memory. No one doubts that General Butler is a man of ready expedients and of great executive ability. In his career in the army, he followed no beaten paths. To accomplish the object sought, he made his own laws, and saw to it'that they were carried out. He sought no instructions from Washington, but tried to accomplish what he was sent to do "in his • own way.- He supported not only his army, but his. government, by supplies drawn from the enemy. This was illustrated by his career in New Orleans. He found the city sullen and unwilling to accept the situation. Its streets were filthy, its le-sees were honeycombed, and a pestilence was threatened. There was no law. The city was sunk in dejection. Lawlessness prevailed. Martial, law was first declared. After that a code of municipal regulations was drawn up. A tax was levied upon the business-men. Those who took the oath of allegiance to the United States were not taxed as heavily as those who did not take it. The taxes, however, were rigidly exacted. All manner'of supplies for the Confederacy were confiscated. A fund was quickly established to clean the streets and maintain municipal reg- . ulations. But this was not all. Over forty thousand dollars was expended for a hospital, and money was used to huy army and other supplies. The regular army officers were astonished. They had never before seen a legislating General. Butler _ waited for no orders from Washington, belt took the reins in his own hands and drove ahead regardless of protests: One day he sent for General Godfrey Weitzel. "I want you to go down to Fort Jackson," he said, "and repair the fort." General Weitzel demurred. •"';This is not the way to do," he replied. "The proper way is to seek an appropriation from Washington. Then you want the authority of the War De- You are not ordered to Fort Jackson. Weitzel, try to attend to your own duties and allow other -officers to attend to- theirs. Fort Jackson must be repaired and Weitzel is the man to do it." Strong departed crestfallen, and reported to WeteeL The latter made no further protest. lie gathered his men, went down to Fort Jackson, and put the fortification in complete repair. When his work at New Orleans was completed General Butler returned to Washington. Uis books showed every cent that he had received while in command at New Orleans and every cent that had "been expended. For all his expenses he had vouchers. He appeared before Secretary Stanton one day with his ledger and his vouchers. Stanton gazed at his cocked hat, his shoulder straps and his sword, and asked him what he wanted. 'I've just come from New Orleans," said the General. . "I want to settle my accounts. Here are my vouchers and my ledger." Stanton sent him over to the proper accounting officer in the War Department. That officer 'was a trim West ?ointer; with an elegant mustache, a manly form and a polite bearing. The ^ threw down his ledger and laid HOW : '"SOLDIERS "DRESS/ HE MADE GBSTUBES. HE DID-HE DIDN'T I Five years ago both loigbt our *dTlce.

There is no unexpended appropriation made for the repair of Port Jackson, and you nave no authority to make the repairs." "Wei}," Butler replied, "you must g-o down' and repair the fort. The safety of the city requires it. I will take care of the appropriation." Weitzel again demurred. Butler urged; and finally General Weitzel said that he -would resign before he would undertake such a work without law. Butler knew Weitzel's worth as an engineer officer. There was no better in the army. "Now, Weitzel,". said he, "sit down at that table. Write the strongest pratest that you can make, saying that you only do this by my imperative command, and upon the distinct understanding that I alone am responsible." Aftermneh hesitation General Weitzel sat down and wrote the protest. Butler indorsed it as correct, and the engineer officer thereupon promised to go down and 'see to the repairs at Fort Jackson. . • Nevertheless, he was still doubtful as to his course. He went over to General Strong, who held a prominent position under General Butler, and who, like Weitzel, was .a West Point graduate. Strong, afterwards fell in the assault on Fort Wagner,, and was buried by, the Confederates under the bodies of his black troops. Weitzel' explained the situation and implored Strong to go over -and reason with Butler. Strong did so on the instant. Butler listened. .to him for 'several minutes, and then broke in with- the words: "Strong; I've had trouble enough with WeitzeL Don't bother me "WHAT IK> YOU WAXT,' GENERAL?" his vouchers upon 1 the table. The officer inspected the ledger. He looked at the expense account. Among the first items was tbe one of forty thousand dollars for fixing tip the hospital. He checked it with his pencil. He passed down the column and began to check every item in it. "What are you doing? Why are you crossing those items?" the. General inquired. "Disallowed, sir," replied the officer, with dignified emphasis. "There were no appropriations for them." He continued checking one item after another to the evident surprise of General Butler. For some seconds he kept his off eye on -the pencil and finally arose, put the ledger under his arm, stuffed the vouchers in his pockets and strode out of the room. The officer, after recovering from his amazement, marched 'over to Secretary Stanton, and told him what had occurred. The Secretary sent an orderly after Butler. The General had hardly got out of the building- before the orderly overtook him. "The Secretary of War wants to see you, General," he said. Butler turned and mounted the stairs, his sword jingling at every step. A? he entered the Secretary's room, Stanton shouted: "Why. what's the matter, General? J thought you. came for a settlement of your accouiets." "Well-," replied Butler, "the trouble is quickly explained. I went to New Orleans, strengthened the levees, cleaned the streets, fitted up hospitals, repaired the forts and put the city completely upon its feet, without asking or receiving one dollar from the general Government. I raised 'the -money myself. I made the city foot the bills. Here are my accounts. They represent every dollar that I collected, and they show how every cent was expended. I have the vouchers here. If I have collected any money which does not appear upon the ledger, or if I have expended any money for which there is not a voucher, I am responsible. -Now, orer and above what I have expended, I have 8500,000 in my pocket, which I did propose to turn over to the Government as soon as my accounts were settled. But as my expenses are disallowed, I presume, of course, that my collections will be disallowed. Consequently the .8500,000 does/not belong to the Government, As.it is thus without an owner, and I am in possession, I propose to keep it. The Government doesn't seem to need it. Good day, Mr. Secretary." Thereupon the doughty General saluted and was about to sail out of the office of the Secretary of War, when Stanton recalled him.- There was an informal conversaton and an informal settlement on the spot. The Government got the five hundred thousand dollars and Butler's accounts were settled to his satisfaction. Such was the story told by the boyish- looking gentleman in the smoking-car of the Pennsylvania train. The slender gentleman was John I. Davenport, Butler's provost marshal -when commanding the Army of the James. The conversation-opened with a discussion of the force bill and closed with this story of General Butler. . It was rendered all the more' interesting because General Butler framed the .force bill of 1875, which was defeated by the masterly parliamentary - tactics .of Samuel J. Randall,"and Butler's provost.-marshal framed the force bill of 1890, which has stirrecTthe country to its innermost depths. AMOS J. Cron'mres. Indian Fis-iirer* Pay Little Attention to Their Clothes. When fighting- the Indians the soldiers pay but-little attention to the clothes they ivear, and to the unexperi- enced man of the East a private would hardly be retioo-nized as one of Uncle Sam's gallant ;inuy should he run across him accidentally. When the soldiers start out on an Indian campaign the bright blue uniform is usually discarded for a suit of brown goods, very much like thoclotli of which overalls are made. The regulation army cap is discarded, and in its place a grafish slouch hat is substituted, which- is much easier on the hea'l, and protects the eyes from the glare of the sun. The soldiers take a great pride in their uniforms, imd not only whtn lighting, but when on long- marches do they don 1;h;> brown suit which does not show tin- dirt, and they wouldn't care if ittlifl. It is inmossible to keep a blue uniform Jnokiujf h a ,u way decent, half a day's ni:irch being quite sufficient to make it look as though it had been worn for yours. The olli'.-ers as well as the privates wear the slouch hat, and a regiment out in the Indian country, under anv circumstances, presents a very unique appearance.. At a distance an officer looks just about tho same as a private, except that he ha.H no gun, and especially in winter time it is difficult to distinguish them. Everybody wears the warmest clothes he can find regardless of uniform. If a soldier has a buffalo coat he's very- liable to wear it if the mercury is sauntering down about twenty or thirty degrees below zero. Another rather unique affair worn by the soldiers is what is called the California overshoes. They are nothing more nor less than a la.i-ge piece of jute tied over the foot and leg as far up as the knee. This is a great guard against the snow and cold, and the soldiers prefer it to any' thing else they can find. About the neck is worn a handkerchief tied in a simple knot, which, among the cavalrymen, invariably jolts around to the back of the collar, though originally tied in front. In cold weather another handkerchief is tied over the head and ears and tied in a knot under the chin. The slouch hat is held on by a string, usually tied .to the band and then brought down through holes on either side of the brim and passed under the back of the head. In a company of 100 men almost every style • of rough costume imaginable may be seen, most of which, are covered with grease and dirt. The more grease the better, as it is said not until the old brown overalls are well smeared with all sorts of truck do they become really warm, and-they never wear out. —N. Y. Journal. Macteth's " pearl top " and "pearl glass" lamp-chimneys do not-break from heat, nqt one in a hundred; they "break from accidents. They are made of clear glass as well as tough, as clear as crystal. They fit the lamps they are made for. Shape controls the draft; they are shaped right. Draft contributes to proper combustion; that makes light; they improve the light of a lamp. _ But they cost a. dealer three times as much as common chimneys, and, as they do not break, he is apt to be anxious lest they stop his trade.
