4 Talk With Ex-Senator Alien G.
From the Brooklyn Eagle.
That veteran Democrat, ex-Seuator Allen
G Thurman, of Ohio, is spending a few
days with his eldest married daughter, the
wife of Lieut. Cowles, of the Navy, at his
elegant country residence at Richmond Hill.
A reporter went out, there yesterday after
noon to interview' him. For many years he
hua enjoyed the reputation of hating the
interviewer as thoroughly and conscien
tiously as a fat man hates a corn. With
the aid of the demure and stately lass who
’tends the post office in the village, the re
porter succeeded in getting on the road to
“Faith an’ bejabbers,” said a weather
beaten Irishman, a bystander, beating the
damp air with his horny and saffron colored
hand to give emphasis to his remarks, “an’
ye couldn’t miss the house if ye’d a moind
to. It’s got the funniest looking basement
ye ever saw in yer loife. It stands on a
Bill." The chimneys were just visible over
the tree tops. Hie reporter trudged along
in the rain. Suddenly a turn in the road
brought the house into plain view. It occu
pied a commanding position, and was ap
proached by a road skirting it on two sides.
One side of the house appeared to
consist of an immense deserted con
servatory, presenting an extensive
front of glass. When within several
hundred yards of the residence the figure of
a tall, gray haired man loomed up out of the
interior darkness of the conservatory and
stalked majestically to the window. One
fiance sufficed to show' that the man w’as
udge Thurman, and the reporter did not
fail to observe, as soon as he got close
enough, that the old gentleman was gazing
at him curiously and somewhat meditative
ly as though divining the nature of his visit,
while endeavoring to fix on a scheme to put
a quietus on him. There was an exuression
of surprise in the sharp gray eyes, too, that
indicated that it was the first time a re
porter had called in that neighborhood since
bis arrival a W'eek ago.
On entering the house, the reporter found
Judge Thurman lying upon a couch near
the window, in what has appeared to be a
conservatory, but which was simply a large
sitting room, ajmost the entire side of the
house being of glass. It was a light port
able couch, covered with soft rugs, and rest
ing upon a tiger skin, the floor lieing of bare,
stained wood. The ex-Senat;or arose with a
little evident difficulty to greet his visitor
and cordially extended a white hand, with
long fingers, and which felt wondrous soft
when contrasted with the sturdy frame and
the strong, rugged outlines of the face.
He twisted himself into a sitting posture
on the side of the couch, shifting , his slip
pered feet a little restlessly bade and forth
on the floor, his elbows resting on bis knees,
his hands clasped and his head hanging for
ward. A large book, bound in garnet cloth,
was on the bottom of the couch. It was
opened, and the Judge had been reading it
when the reporter arrived. After a few in
troductory words of w'elcome, be said:
“I have suffered greatly from lumbago
during the past montn. I cannot sit up
longer than fifteen or twenty minutes at a
time without experiencing such a pain in
the small of my back that I am compelled to
lie down again.”
“I see you have been reading,” said the
“Yes,” replied Judge Thurman, lying
back on the couch,” “and it is a highly in
teresting book. McClellan was a grand,
good man. He was upright, and as inflex*-
lbly honest as any man I ever knew'. Ah!
w'hat a shame to have attacked him so! He
was one of God’s own men."
These words were uttered slowly and
earnestly, and in a manner that showed that
Judge Thurman had been a most ardent
friend and admirer of the gallant ‘‘Little
The conversation turned to general topics,
the Judge declaring that he would not be in
“The only thing I will talk about,” he ex
claimed with a laugh, “is the weather.”
“Are you out of politics for goods” asked
“Yes,” answered the Judge, emphatically.
Then in a moment he hastened to add:
“When I say that lam out of politics for
good I don’t mean to say that I am out to
the extent of not taking any further in
terest in them. But I don’t want and lam
not a candidate for any office whatever."
It. was intimated that the public would
feel a legitimate interest in whatever opinion
the Judge might care to express relative to
the recent red-hot controversy over the
restoring of Confederate battle flags to their
former owners. The Judge shook his head
gently and half closed his eyes, as though
he were mildly disgusted at the mere men
tion of the subject:
“I suppose the demagogues will make all
they can out of the incident,” lie
sententiously. He inquired with evident
interest what position the leading papers of
New York city liad taken in the matter, his
first inquiry being:
“How did Charles A. Dana stand?”
W r hen informed that Mr. Dana had
characterized the order for the return of the
flags as a big blunder the Judge said:
“Uin!” in a way that showed that he was
indulging in a somewhat profound medita
“Will you say what you think of Mr.
Cleveland and his administration?” asked
“Yes, I w’ill,” answered the Judge prompt
ly, and evidently embracing the question as
an opportunity to put himself on record on
the matter. “I regard Mr. Cleveland as a
brave, an honest and an able man. I might
not, perhaps, have done exactly as he has
done had I been in his place, but I believe
him to be thoroughly upright and honest,
and to possess much more ability than he is
given credit for. I think that he has never
aone except what he believed to be right. ”
The talk touched on Blaine.
“The general sentiment seems to be, said
the reporter, in answer to a question bear
ing on the point by the Judge, “that Mr.
Blaine can get the Republican nomination
if he wants it.” .
“It is a year yet before the politicians get
together,” said the Judge, “andyou can t
begin to tell what may happen in a year.
This was not said in a manner that indicated
that Judge Thurman was at all apprehen
sive about Mr. Blaine’s candidacy, or that
he regarded him as a dangerous man to
fight in the next national campaign, but
in a way that conveyed the impression that
the Judge was really in serious doubt as to
whether the Plumed Knight could get or
Would take the nomination, lie showed
how he regarded the situation by asking:
“Can Mr. Blaine get a solid Now \ork
To this question, of course, there could
be no satisfactory answer.
The Judge inquired after Gen. Harry W.

BIG POKER UP NORTH.
The Big Four of the Rod River Valley-
MaJ. Ed wards*’ Success as a Bluffer.
From the Chicago Herald.
Interest in the game of draw poker in the
Northwest has lteen gradually dying °ut
during the past five years. Those men who
made the Rod river valley famous for the
recklessness with which the national game
was played within its boundaries have
turned their attention to legitimate business
in towns and cities that have sprung up
along the bunks of the Red river, and when
they turn their attention now to cards it is
more for pleasure than profit. Ten years
ago there was a coterie of poker players in
that country who won and lost fortunes on
card*, and they did it as cheerfully as thov
How risk their money in real estate and
other speculations that carry with them an
air of legitimacy. . ......
Maj. A. VV. Edward* was probably the
sti(test poker player in the Red river
valley a few years ago, and there were out
few of the best who had the courage to
meet him on neutral ground. He nevei
won thereputaion of playing anything Out
an honest game. H did not depend on
tricks and clever mauipui-ition of c*rd3 tor
M&mmisf^ arriedin f° the e ame with him
of nerve that .usually scared bis
opponent into defeat. J

him m t en i fro ‘V Louisville Ky-. who asked
never 13111 at cardu - T be Major
never refused an invitation of that nature,
a “ ‘ a ot four was soon made up. The
gentlemen trom Louisville are well-known
.. P°f ltl cal circles, and have reputation
&& vcr -V clever card players. The game
began in a small room on the third floor of
!. , I , < ri^ erch u antti oarl v bi the evening,
and the chips shifted from hand to hand
w itaout material gain to either player until
daybreak, when the Major puiled bis heavy
slouch hat over his eyes, and, tucking one
loot under him, his favorite position when
play ing, started out to play his game. For
a time ha surprised the Southrons at his
Utter abandon, but he never showed his
nand when he could avoid it. At last ho
stood pat. His opponents drew cards, and
one man forced the fight with three kings,
another three queens, and a third four ten
spots. The Major made bid for more
money. He was promptly raised. The
Major met the raise and went it 8500 bettor,
but his opponents were not tired and asked
him for more. lie had only 850 in his
pocket, and calling a bell boy he sent a note
down stairs to Col. Allen, proprietor or the
Merchants’ Hotel, asking him for a loan of
81,000. The Colonel knew his man, and up
went a check for the desired amount, and
the Major coolly dropped the check on the
pile of chips and money in the centre of the
table, and, leaning back in the chair, took a
cigar from his pocket and lighted it. This
was too much for the others, who sized him
up for four aces, and they threw up their
hands. The Major drew in the money,
cashed the chips, and found that he had
won 8-1,700 on the hand. His opponents
looked at their watches, yawned, and push
ing back their chairs said they were tired
and would quit playing. Before they left
they’ picked up the Major’s hand and found
that he had stood pat ;uid won the pot on a
pair of fours.
The four spot the Major considered his
lucky card, and never failed to play it hard
whether he held one or a quartette of them,
and he says it never yet lost for him.
Col. Morrow, a citizen of Fargo, who emi
grated to that country early in the seventies
from the soil of Virginia, was about the
only card player in that country who
wouldn’t take a bluff from the Major. The
men were the warmest friends. They
seemed to run a mutual admiration society,
but when they faced each other over a
stack of chips they fought as warmly and as
determinedly as though they were the
In ’79 the Major and the Colonel sat down
to a game in Biily Morrison’s star chamber,
which was then the headquarters of sporting
men in that part of the country. The game
had been a hard one, slightly in favor of the
Colonel. Finally he opened a good sized
jack pot on a pair of kings. The Major
stayed and drew two cards which gave him
nothing but a “bobtail” flush. The Colonel
took three cards, but didn't better his hand,
and he bet 8500 that his kings were good.
The Major pulled a check book out of his
pocket, made out a check for 8-1,000 and
dropped it on the centre of the table. This
was a challenge to the Colonel’s nerve
which he didn’t hesitate a moment to accept,
and without any show of excitement he
promptly called the bet. The Major threw
down his broken back flush, the Colonel
dropped his kings and raked in the money.
The game stopped there.
Alexander McKenzie, Sheriff of Burleigh
county for many years, was a strong
player, and ranking with him were John
Haggart, for fifteen years Sheriff of Cass
county, and Judson Lamoure, a resident of
Pembina, where he owns a great deal of
property, and is a sort of whipper-in for the
Republican party in that portion of the
These men were known throughout the
Teritory as the “Big four,” and whenever
they came together there was a hard game.
John Haggart was a reckless player, but
his good fortune always pulled him through
a game with a winning to his credit. Jud
Lamoure, as he was familiarly called, was
usually the victim. This quartette started a
game six years ago in Fargo that continued
from Wednesday at 10 o’clock p. m. until
Saturday noon, and none of the players
slept during that time. In the end Edwards
was a big winner. Haggart pocketed some
thing like 85,000, while McKenzie and
Lamoure went broke.
These men rarely meet nowadays over the
cards. Maj. Edwards is devoting himself
to the management of the Fargo Argus, of
which he is editor and proprietor, and
seldom sits down to cards. When he does
it is but a friendly game of casino, hearts,
sinch or whist. He has been turning his
attention to politics of late and a few weeks
ago was elected Mayor of Fargo, and his
ambition is now soaring toward the halls of
Alexander McKenzie last year surrendered
the shrievalty of Burleigh county, and has
settled back on the 8100,000 that he
accumulated when he was in office. He
makes Bismarck his headquarters, and he is
considered the shrewdest political wire
puller in Dakota. .
John Haggart was knocked out of the
Sheriffs office a year ago by the Democrats,
and is now paying close attention to his
bonanza farm on the banks of the Cheyenne
river. He has made money in Dakota, and
is worth 8900,iX)0.
HUMBUG IN WINES.
How Native Brands Are Made Foreign
In the Cellars of New York.
From the A’etn York Sun.
“We make from 30,000,000 to 35,000,000
gallons of American wine yearly, and we
do not import over 5,000,000. Those figures
tell whether the wine druuk by our people
is foreign or American.” So spoke a New
York wine dealer. “By far the large} part
of the American wine, however,” he added,
“is not sold as American, but as foreign
wines Only a few days ago I visited the
cellar of one of the largest wine merchants
in the city. It contained many
thousands of gallons of American
wine, the casks being marked ‘St. Julien,’
Medoc,’ etc., through the list of prominent
foreign’ brands. Hotel men go there and
order these wines bottled and labelled as
foreign wine, and I saw in the cellar ninny
thousands of labels ready for use in this
wav. These parties take good care not to
imitate a trade mark, but they give the
wine the foreign name and sell it as foreign
to their guests. It is a strictly confidential
business as between the wine merchant and
the hotel keeper. The American wine is
bottled right there in the cellar, marked
with the foreign label, and then sent to the
hotel, so that the hotel proprietor is not put
in tho power ot ! his steward or caterer bv
the latter knowing the source from which
his employer receives his wines. Of course
this does not apply to ail hotels.
“It is not difficult to see the advantage of
all this,” went on the wine dealer. “It en
ables the hotel man to sell his wines at a
profit of 100 to 200 jior cent., and it enables
the American wine producer to dispose of
his product, that might otherwise be left on
'"“But one of the most interesting decep
tions ” added the wine dealer, “is that per
petrated by some of the creme de. la creme
upon their confiding friends. Some rich in
dividual, who lias a coat of arms, amt coats
of arms can always be (?ot in London at the

THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20, 18877
MR. KNOX’S ADVENTURE.
He Has a Shadow Flirtation With tho
Occupant of Berth Fifteen.
From the Chicago Herald.
Here is a true incident of summer travel:
My friend Knox boarded the express train
some time near 10 o’clock in the evening,
and found the sleepers crowded with passen
gers. The colored porter offered a choice of
two places—the lower bunk in section 1,
the upper birth lieing occupied by an old
fen tinman, or the upper berth in section
5, the lower having been taken in
New York by a charming young
woman, according to the porter. Knox
wasn’t half a minute in making
a choice. No. 1 was too near tho door,
over the wheels, in fact, and to 15 with the
porter ho went. He took his little pair of
steps in behind tho drab curtains and
mounted to his perch. Each of the berths
had a short vallance of lace close to tho bed,
and a foot awat there swept from tho
cornice a heavy drab rep curtain. Up in
the cockloft Knox made a few alterations in
his toilet, handed his shoes to tho porter, and
addressed himself to sleep; but somehow his
mind kept wandering to the lower berth.
He wondered if its occupant was a blonde or
a brunette. The officious porter came along
talking to someone just then, and a voice
as sweet as a maroon glace said below him:
“Is that you, porter? Will you give me
a glass of water, please?” Knox lay with
his neck on the rail of his bed, as if" it was
a guillotine, till the water came, and a slim,
white hand stretched forth and took the
glass. Then the pretty hand went out again,
and fluttered around a refractory button ou
the curtain. Byron has said that tho “moon
sees more mischief in a month than the sun
gets a shine at in r year,” and the moon
really does sown to take an interest in seeing
fun. As the cars were racing through
bucolic scenes she burst forth in all her
splendor, and throw a radiant field of white
light on the surface of the drab
curtain. Madam had pushed aside
the little lace flounces of her
couch, as she took the water, and
now, as Knox rested his off ear on the side
rail, he could see the sharply defined outline
of a graceful head, and a shapely arm
thrown partly over it. The shadow fasci
nated him. It changed; evidently tho sub
stance of it had turned from tho window
and was facing the curtain. For an instant
a hand flitted across the moon-lit square, in
search, perhaps, for the little muff-like pad
which railroad companies furnish for pil
lows. The restless sleeper noticed the pretty
shadow of her hand, no doubt, for she held
it so that all the fingers were displayed. She
made a fist of it. She did “fly away, Jack,
come, Jill,” with her thumb ana pinky
In an instant Knox thought of something.
He dropped his hand over the side till the
moon's rays threw its shadow beside the
smaller one on the rep curtain. Instantly
the little one disappeared. Knox has a
handsome hand. It is one of his strong
points. It is a large hand, perhaps, but woU
shaped, white and admirably cared for. Its
proprietor showed that he admired it, for
on the third Anger gleamed and glistened in
the moonlight a $7OO diamond. Such a
beauty! Many a time and oft, as he toyed
with his moustache in public places,
he had seen admiring glances wander
to it. An ugly man can attract at
tention with a five-karat stone, and
Knox knew its attraction for the fair sex.
The newly arrived shadow on the curtain
hung limp and listless for a moment. Then
it took the shape of the first letter of the
deaf and dumb alphabet—the second—the
third. Knox got on well till he arrived at
H. when he seemed to be stranded. To his
delight the little fist crept onto the curtain
with the thumb and little finger sitting up
like soldiers, helping him to the letter I.
After this they went along together smooth
ly until they came to O. But the lady
bridged over the difficulty, and the shadow
alphabet was successfully completed. Then
ensued a little conversation:
“How far do you go,” spelled the shadow
on the curtain.
“Chicago,” answered the smaller hand.
“Do yon go to Chicago!”
“I believe I will.”
“Are you a married lady!” asked the big
“Widow,” responded the little digits.
Knox was in the seventh heaven as well
as the upper bunk.
“We will have breakfast together?” said
“With pleasure,” it replied.
“Do you ever indulge in a nightcap!”
asked the facetious shadow.
“Never wear one,” answered the obtuse
“I mean take a little nip.”
“I couldn’t think of it.”
"Sweet creature,” he thought, “she can’t
he much over 20. All widows of 30 like a
drop of rye.”
ivnox had nearly sa wed his ear off on the
side of the bunk by this time, but he was
enjoying himself hugely. The widow be
low was bewitchingly flavored with white
rose. It came up in gusts once in awhile.
A silver laugh also had gurgled several
times, and Knox was as pleasod as Punch
with his delightful adventure.
In the midst of a sentence the moon went
suddenly behind a cloud, and Knox uttered
his first spoken words, “Ain’t that too bad!”
and a whistled “Yes” floated hack to him.
"Good-night.” Knox boldly lowered his
hand. The widow’s reached it. This was
simply delicious. The jolt of her car swayed
their clasped hands. Knox was in elysium.
Go to Chicago! Why, he’d have gone to
Joppa. Bidding the enamored man a soft
good night, and promising to lie punc
tual for breakfast the widow pulled the
white lace curtains, and after awhile Knox
It was broad daylight when the porter
eame through dropping hoots in the differ
ent sections. He made an unnecessary row
in 15. Knox looked out and said “Hello,"
and then he wondered what the negro was
thrashing about the lower bunk.
“Is the lady out!” he a-sked.
“Warn’t no lady there boss,” said the por
ter. “I sposod they was, when I tole yer,
but it seemed jest afore she wont to lied she
fell in wif an ole lady wat had number 21
an’ a dude of a fellow, he had a ’arf o’ that
section, an’ they got to talking, and jess
swapped. I never dmpi>cd to it till the dude
got off back 3‘cr to Spension Bridge, an’ I

Knox was agbßst. Was he awake? He
rubbed his eyes, and as he rubbed them ho
noticed that his ring wasjtone.
