The newspaper world is in a commotion this morning over the report of the death of Gen Gram Reporters arc Hying in all directions rushing to the residence of Gen Grant and his several physicians while the telegraph is busy bearing messages to the same place and people Gen Grant's home is fully hall an hour's quick drive from the nearest newspaper office and verification is necessarily slow Dr Fordyce Barker telegraphs as follows: New York March 17 4 a Wm A Smith General Manager As-tociateil Press' I have not heard anything of the kind (Rumor of the death oi Gen Grant) Lsaw the general at 2 yesterday (Signed) Fordyce Barker All the New York papers are ready to issue an extra edition should the report prove tree Chicago March 17 4:45 a Information has jast been received that the report of Gen death iB without foundation The Hazen Court Martial Washington March 16 Gen Hazen testified in his own behalf before the court martial to-day He admitted writing the article in controversy hut said he intended no disrespect or discourtesy to the secretary of war He gave as is reason for making the statements that he had been held to a most serious responsibility for not effectively rescuing the Greely party That it had been published all over the world that he was in fault and that in his own defense he simply wished to state a fact that Greely could have been rescued and that he (Hazen i did all in his power to have him rescued The secretary of war in his annual report had largely confirmed the opinion expressed in the press that he (Hazen) was responsible for the death of these men The report either made hint wilfully culpable or neglectful and inefficient in his work Neither was true he wrote the letters simply to relieve himself of that blemish upon his record which the report wrongly placed there In an argument upon an objection Judge Mackey counsel for Gen Hazen said: know that the prosecution does not want to touch Cape Sabine The accuser does not want to face those hor-We propose to show the animus of the accuser: that he was imbued with malice deep and deadly against the chief signal officer of the army He liecame blind uioti any question touching Arctic matters suggesting his deep tireless hate that indeed his rery body exhaled malice whenever the chief signal name was mentioned Judge Mackey then called the attention of the witness to the fact that his letter to the secretary' dated Feb 17 last was endorser! by the secretary as having lieen received at the war department Feb 26 and also to the fact of the statement concerning the contents of this letter published in the Chicago Tribune Feb 25 and asked where the letter was kept prior to Feb 26 Gen Hazen replied that it was kept in his desk Judge Mackey asked whether within a recent period official letters had not lieen purloined ftom the desks in the signal office and taken to the secretary of war The judge advocate objected to this Judge Mackey said the purpose of the defense is to negative the presumption that the accused circulated the contents of this letter He said he proposed to show that letters had been purloined from the desk in the signal office and taken to the secretary of war by the person purloining them and that the person received special employment after purloining the letters He said they wanted to show the general course of the administration with reference to the chief signal office That nothing was8afe or sacred in the office of the chief signal officer from the hand of this secretary of wav by day or night The judge advocate said he did not feel called upon to reply to the insinuations of the counsel in respect to the secretary of war That official he said needed no defense at his hands and the attacks upon him were in very had taste to say the least Without concluding the examination ot Gen Hazen the court adjourned 'tough on instant relief for Neuralgia Toothache Faceache Ask for on Toothache 15 25c For bilious disorders St Pillt
