'rHE pbessi Friday Morning, Man h 29. 1897. [ From the Xcw Fork Evening Foal.] Iku«*fh*« Diary. REMARKABLE STATEMENT BY GEN. BUTLER. We print below the remarkable statement of General Butler in the House of Representa tives yesterday, not because of its bearing against Mr. Hiugham, for we do not think the quarrel between Butler and Bingham of great interest, hut because of the great public inter est in the matters put forward by General Bailer. We caunot see how this matter can 1), left to rest where it lies. Whore is Booth’s diary? Why was it concealed? Who tore out the leaves? What did those leaves con tain? What has become of them? Lnless General Butler has indulged himself in insin uations which would be monstrous, there is a mystery here which justice demands should he ferret ted out. General Butler said: Ho would state the cvidonco on which he laid made, the other day, tlio statement that Mrs. Su. ratt was improperly convicted. He hold in his hand the printed report of the trial and had examined it with great care, because this was no sporadic thought of his. It was the result of careful, anxious investiga tion for another and a different purpose— to seo who were in the great conspiracy. There was one piece of evidence within the gentleman’s (Bingham’s) knowledge which he liad not produced on that most momentous tri al. When Booth was captured by Lieutenaut Golonel Conger there was, said Mr. Butler, taken from his pocket a diary tike the one 1 now hold iu my hand [holding up a small mo rocco-covered pocket diary] in . which he (Booth) set down day by day his plans. Ins thoughts, his motives and his excuse. That diary was put into the possession ot the government, but it was not laid belure the Military Commission, although the gentleman (Bingham) did lay heiore the Court Booth s to bacco pipe, spur, kudo, and other articles fmnd on his person. The diary wot not pro l,"! uat diary appears now before our Judiciary Committee, and let me say hero that 1 did no't ,i,i my information from that committee, with the eighteen pages oj entries made in the diary prior to the time of Mr. Lincoln's assassi nation absent. The edges show that the pages were all cut out. •‘Wliat 1 want to know is this: First—Was that diary wholo when it came into the hands of the government? Second—Whether it was good judgment on the part of those who were prosecuting the assassins ol Abraham Lincoln to put iu a tobacco pipe found m Booth's pock et as evidence against the prisoner, while the diary ill Booth’s own handwriting, detailing all tiie particulars of his crime, was withheld? Who spoliated that book? Who suppressed that evidence? Who caused that innocent wo man to he hanged while he had in his pocket the diary which would have shown at least vi hat waK the idea and what were the thoughts of the main conspirator? “There is still remaining in that diary a memorable entry written but a few hours be fore J. Wilkes Booth’s death. I quote from memory: ‘I have endeavored to cross,the Poto mac Jive times and failed. 1 propose, to return to Wash ington and.give myself up and clear my self qf this great crime.’ How clear himself? By giving himself up and disclosing his accomplices! Who were they? Who spoliated that book after it got into the possession of the government? If it was not spoliated, wny was Lt.-Colonel Conger allowed to go on and state what had been found on Booth’s body? The questions were carefully put to him, so he should uot tell about the book. lie meutilies the knife, pair of pistols, hoi st k r, tobacco-pipe, cartridges, a bill of exchange. ; hut he was nowhere asked, ‘Were these oil the articles that were found on Booth?” II lie iiad been asked that question he would li.iv.' answered that lie had taken Booth's diary from his pocket as he lay gasping iu death. 1 do uot know wliat would liavo been the ver dict of the Military Commission ii that evi dence bad been produced. The evidence found I on the person of Booth should have been pro duced. 1 understood the theory to be that the reason it was not produced was lest Booth's gUnifier tion of himsell should go into the case. I think that a most lame excuse. If an assassin cau glorify himsell Jut him do so; but there is no danger of it. 1'hereiure I again say here, it wits a most remarkable circumstance that a piece of evidence found on the Is sly of th< great Conspirator should be concealed. I will take that back—I mean that it was not put forward—not brought before the great public mind. 1 believe that piece of evidence would hove shownwhat in my judyement the whole case m,w shows—that Booth up to u certain’hour meant a capture and abduction of Mr. Lincoln, and that he changed his purpose and resorted to assassination." airs, tiurrait may or may not liaye known of the change of purpose. it all the testimony had been presented, we should have been able to pursue the accom plices, and to find out who it was that chanyea Booth’s purpose from capture to assusination— who it was that was to profit by the assassina tion, and that would not profit by the capture 01 Mr. Liacion—who it was that should suceed to Mr. Lincoln in case the bullet made a vacancy. In some aspects oi the case that diary might not have been legal testimony, but its moral evidence would nave carried couvictiou to the mind of everybody, because it was the dyiug declaration of a man, assassin though he were who w's telling the truth between himsell and God. J Mow was Booth, by coining back to Wash iugton, going to clear himself °f great rennet That question still remains. A .Meteur Seen Near Chicag*. Mr. B. F. Clough writes from Elk Grove, III., t > the Chicago Tribune, that on the 17th of this month.about sunset, "the attention ol myself ami family was suddenly attracted by a strange rumbling noise like not very distant thunder, which we soon ascertained was occasioned by the bursting ol un unusually large meteor, ap parently not very tar away. One of my sons being ncur the barn saw what appeared like a long train of fire passing from east to west in the somh, at an elevation of some forty-five de grees, slightly declining toward the horizon, ami disappearing after traversing some forty degrees. He at once ran through the barn, ami, calling the attention of two other brothers to the place it passed through, they saw its track still marked by a long line of vapor.— Then, all returning to the first place of obser vation, they heard the rumbling of the explo sion. From the house myself and the rest of rny family hearing the strange noise and seeing the excited movements of the young men, went to the door and learned the above facts.— The time from the first appearance of tbe me teor to the explosion did not exceed two min utes. This fact, together with the train of va por, would indicate that the body was low in the atmosphere—less than twenty miles away, and yet above the lower current of the air, as the wind, though very light, was in the west, the sky nearly cloudless, the air quite cool, tbe mercury standing at fifteen degrees.” The Stale af Deseret. The Constitution of the proposod State of Deseret, which includes the greater portion of the Territory of Utah, has been again laid be fore Congress, with a memorial of the Mormon Legislative Assembly of the proposed State praying for admission. The N. Y. Times Washington dispatch says: An examination of this Constitution shows it to be shaped very closely after that of the United States. It nowhere mentions the in stitution of polygamy, except by implication in that section which provides tuat the Gener al Assembly shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercises thereof, or to disturb any per son in his religious worship, or sentiments, and no subordination or preference of any one sect or denomination to anoth er shall ever ho established by law, &c. This over explicit assertion of the freedom of religious opinion is construed to mean protec tion to the peculiar institution of Utah. In all other respects the Constitution is unobjection able. Amendments ratified .before the recent legislation of Congress strike out the word white ami practically assert universal suffrage by con ferring it upon all male citizens of the United states twenty-one years of age. The vote on this ratification was H,005 for and 30 against Ihus indicating in the proposed State a Douula tion of over 100,000 So if Congress is admit ting new States with a far less numlier it must soon turn its attention to Deseret and poly K»my. _ The Liquor Question.—Hon. Woodbury Davis, of our city, being in Boston the other day, was requested to take the witness' stand before tbe committee of tiic Legislature who are investigating the questions of license and pro hibition. We find in tho Trantcript the follow ing report: Judge Davis of Portland went into the his tory of temperance legislation in Maine, and declared that the prohibitory law was enforced generally there, although this was not the case in some portions of the State, and from that reason l lie State Constabulary bill was adopt Th’Ln.ud.TLe«“lat"®' of liquors which SEfTSSS On the cross-examination the Judge said that the secret sale of liquor had contimmfun Maine, although to what extent he could tell. In Portland and Bangor, and other large cities and towns, those desiring stimulants of this sort can obtain them. Any stranger can have a bottle of wine sent to Ins room at the hotels, in Portland, if he orders the same. New Gold Discoveries.—A correspondent of the Sioux City (Iowa) Register, writing from Fort Bea uford, Dakota, January lyih says that in digging a well at that post, at the depth of about twenty feet, a vein of sand was Struck that panned out ten cents in gold to every quart of dirt. Some Montana miners say there are some of the very best indications lor gold in large quantities about there. Tho Register says: sue!'Iwetfs '!>f eohT 7° w'ira some fine specimens oi gold brought from the Hills region by Major CuUtZ ‘of* fe Amer ic in Fur Company, who gave it c, . founded upon the knowledge acquired"by”a residence ot more than a quarter of a centurv in the Indian country, that gold existed in large quantities, and was distributed over a considerable scope of territory, embracing the lllack llills, tho Valley of the Yellowstone"and jts tributaries.

Municipal Court. JUDGE KINGSBURY PRESIDING. Thursday.—The liquors and vessels seized a short timo since on tho premises of R. K.

A man was brought up for larceny of lead pipe from tho cellar of tho Custom House. His plea was tliat he had imbibed too much rotgut and was uncon scious what he had been doing. The Court fined him $10, and costs amounting to $3.17, which his wife promised to pay, and made an earnest request to the reporters that her husband’s name might be kopt Irom the papers. As it was his first offcuco and he promised it should bo the last, wo comply with tho wile’s request. The Gilmore Concert last evening was a triumphant success. Long before the hour for opening, the doors were besoiged by an eager crowd; and the rush for places was so great as to completely block the entrance. The psrformancc was all that had. been anticipated —which is saying enough. Camilla Urso was reoeived with enthusiastic applause, and played as only she can play. — Ur. Carlyle l’eterailea created an extremely favorable first impression, and Ur. Arbuckle sustained the high reputation he already en joys among us. The vocal portion of the con cert was also most satisfactory. Madame Jo hannsen rendered her parts in a truthful and artistic manner; the fine, flexible voice of Dr. Guilmetto showed to much advantage, and his dramatic power was well displayed in the per formance of the “Ship on Fire. Mr. Whitney sang very pleasingly in the aria from Don Pat quale. At the late hour at which we write it is impossible to criticise in detail, and in the midst of so much that is good, it is difficult to select the host; therefore, we make no attempt of the kiud. Much satisfaction was felt in hearing the announcement made on the part of Mr. Gilmore that in consequence of many holderg of tickets having been unable to obtain seats last evening, a matinee performance will be given this morning at eleven o’clock. Tickets may be obtained at the usual places. The conoert by the Orchestral Union which occurs this evening, is the first public appear ance since its organization. This society is composed wholly of ourcitizens, and we hope they will be well patronized. We are glad to see some interest being manifested in music, and trust it will result in a general waking up of the slumbering talent into action, for it must be conceded that Portland with all her advan tages, is far behind many smaller cities in this respect. A few years ago we claimed to rival Boston in the possession of a singing society; to-day, not a vestige remains. Lewiston dur ing the past season has brought out the “Cre ation” and other works of the great masters.— Bangor has a grand musical festival on the tapis and we see no reason why Portland can not at least do as much as her neighbors. Let somo individuals start in this matter and we doubt not, by united action, something can be accomplished. The above association was or ganized for the purpose of cultivating a taste for a good order of mnsic among our people and we trust they will meet with sufficient encouragement to enable them to continue their efforts. Portland, Me., March 28, 1807. Mr. Editor:—In your issue of yesterday there appeared a communication from Sheri dan & Griffiths, in which they state that my communication of the day previous place them in a false light before tho public. They deny one fact asserted by me, iu reference to their sending for men from other cities, which fact, however, we are able to prove, not only by the person who wrote the dispatches, but by others I am sorry the gentlemen have to fall back upon the State Legislature for support now. I think, sir, they might have had a better excuse last year than that, whereas, at that time, they held the demand was nothing but just. If the few plain truths I presented to your readers have placed the gentlemen iu so false a light, I do not know what their position would be had I made public certain transactions which it would be for their interest at the pres ent time to remain in secret. I do not wish to commence a newspaper con troversy with either of the gentlemen above mentioned, but am ready to meet them with facts and proot at any time, either in publio or elsewhere. Journeyman Plasterer. Portland & Rochester Railroad.—We learn that at the meeting of tho City Council on Monday evening next, a petition will bo presented from the Directors of tho Portland & Rochester Railroad Company, praying that a logal meeting of tho voters of Portland may be called to act upon the question of the city’s loaning to said corporation the sum of $700, 000. This amount will entirely complete the road, and the city would have the first and only mortgage upon it. The act of Feb. 28th, authorizing cities and towns to raise money to aid in the construc tion of railroads requires two-thirds of the votes cast at a legal meeting to he in favor of the measuro. There is no doubt that seven eighths of tho legal voters of this city would vote in favor of tho proposition mentioned above. Arrests.—Offlers Gerts and Williams ar rested a thief yesterday, who gave his name as Michael Holland and said ho came from St. John, N. B. Holland and two or three accom plices went into Thomas Gill’s grocery on Cen ter street Wednesday evening, and while.the rest of the crowd distracted Gill’s attention, Holland stole his overcoat. The overcoat was found yesterday morning at a shop in Cotton street. The officers were after another of the thieves named Bafforty, but at last accounts had not found him. A man was arrested by Officer Williams anil Constable Charles H. Hall, for steal ing twenty l'eet of lead pipe from the Custom House. Tub Machias Steamer.—The people on the route of the Machias steamer, at the various landings, greeted the City of Biclimond on her first trip with a truly hearty welcome, and flocked on board in large numbers, oxpressiDg their gratification at her improved appearance and enlarged accommodations. She will leave Bailroad wharf, foot of State street, at 10 o’clock to-night, on her second trip, and our merchants aud others interested should bear this in mind. Distribution of Goodies—Yesterday af ternoon, as the bake-cart of Messrs. Brooks was crossing the corner of York and High stroets, the lorward linch-pin jolted out, letting that part of the cart to the ground, tumbling the driver into the mud and distributing the cakes and pies in a most benevolent manner. The boys soon congregated in that vicinity and had a glorious feast on the goodies. Festival and Levee.—The festival and le vee of Congress square XJniversalist Sabbath School, advertised for two evenings, comes off— the second part—this evening at tho vestry of the Congress square Church. Preparations have been made for an exceedingly pleasant time, and we douht not the expectations of the getters-up wilt be fully rea'ized. Prooeeds for the benefit of the Sabbath School Library. Auction Salk.—E. M. Patten & Co. sold at Merchants’ Exchange, yesterday, one-sixteenth of bark Mary C. Fox for $800; one-sixteenth ot brig Antilles, $800; one-sixteenth of brig J. C. York, $950; ten shares Portland, Bangor and Machias 8. 8. Company, each, $70; two shares Portland Horse Railroad Company, each, $70. Floub Falling.—A barrel of flour rolled off a team at the loot of Cotton street yester day afternoon and, the head being burst in the operation, the flour was freely distributed. The article was rather lower than anyone likes to see it. K AVabte and Shbinkaoe.—People afe not generally aware of the waste and shrinkage of moat aLd fish they use daily in their families, aud, iu fact, ef almost everything else they purchase in small quantities. Every house keeper should keep a set of weights, and weigh every article consumed. In following this rule of late, I find the following waste or shrinkage thus, commencing Monday 9th: 9 lbs. beef (roast) weighed 71 lbs., 1$ short, 30t*. 45 7 “ cod weighed 5 lbs., waste 2 lbs. 7e. 14 24 “ beef stoak, less 4 lb. 2s. 25 lo “ bam, less 1J lbs. IGo. 2» 7 “ fresh j>ork, less 1J lbs. 18c. 22 Pork and corned beef, less 11 lbs. lCc. 24 1 50 Sugar will shrink 1-16; coffee, tea, rice and spices, do—probably owing to the atmosphere being so very dry at this season of the year. Here is a waste (or a leak) amounting to $1.50 a week on meat for a family of seven per sons. True, it does not amount to a very large sum per head, and allowing only fifty cents more for shrinkage of other articles, which is quite small, it simply amounts in one year to about $100, which can be saved as well as not w ith a small set of balances costing only $5.00. These balances may be found at any hardware store in town, and are very peculiarly con structed. The air in the places where they are known to be kept is very moist, and consequent ly prevents the slow process of shrinkage often noticed by a constant Obsebvek. New Invention.—The enterprising buys of Portland have in use a new inveution called “Bean Snapper,” which is used for wasting beans, by throwing them at the windows of houses as they pass by in the street, apnarent ently innocent of doing anything to causo the inmates to run and look out. The noise made upon the glass is like throwing small shot or gravel stones at the window. In some locali ties this has been practiced so often of late that it has become quite annoying and one in dividual has “spotted” a few of the leaders, in tending to present thorn to the Municipal Court for correction, instead of giving them a good shaking himself. So look out boys how you waste the grocers’ beans hereafter! O. The Sabbath at Home.—An extremely beautiful monthly, bearing tho above title, is published by tho American Tract Society, Boston. It contains sixty-four octavo pages, resembling in size and stylo the Atlantic Monthly, and is finely pYinted. Tho illustra tions and tho press-work are admirab'e, and tho cover is a fine specimen ol block-printing in colors. Tho literary contents are of an ex cellent character. Tho April number, now be fore us, shows a varied and interesting table of oontents. Bold at Chisholm’s—Congress street.

The mad bull that gores a man to death or tho tiger that break fasts upon a child is quite as much a murderer as this poor victim of insanity, and his maniac act was no more a crime than tho Into ol a mad dog. —Mr. Waterhouse, principal of the Augusta High Sohool, goes to Bangor to take charge of the High School in that city, the principal of which has recently gone to Worcester, Mass. —Gen.

The Bath Times understands that the rail road committee are busily engaged in perfect ing the plans and estimates for tho road from that city to Rockland. —The Augusta correspondent of the Boston Journal says Judge Tenney of Norridgewock is in good health, newspaper reports to the contrary notwithstanding. The Lewiston Journal relates that a boy baby, apparently two months old, was left, with a valiso of very neat apparel, on the door step of Dr. Burbank of that city, on Saturday evening last, to which attention was called by ringing the door bell. A note accompanied tho package, written apparently by a lady, in a neat handwriting, addressed to “Mr. and Mrs. -” and stating the writer had heard they would rear a child provided one should be left with them whose parentage was always to re main unknown; that this child wag abandon ed not because its mother was too poor to rear it, but because of pride. The Doctor intends to rear the child in his own family, if its parent age contiuues unknown. —Belfast is to vote on the question of sub scribing for stock in the Belfast & Moose head railroad to tho amount of $300,000, or 20 per cent, ot the city valuation. —The town of Dexter has voted unanimously to loan its credit for the sum of $125,000 to aid in tho construction of the Dexter and New port railroad. —The Rockland Free Press publishes the result of the election in Appleton under the caption, “Rebel Victory.” —The Bangor Democrat courteously styles Messrs.

Copperheads.—A writer in the last At lantic Monthly, giving an account of a conver sation with Herndon, the law-partner of Mr. Lincoln in Springfield, quotes that gentle man’s account of some of the early trials ot settlers in that region. It appears to have been infested with a kind of vermin which may ho paralleled to-day: “We reached Springfield at last,” said Mr. Herndon; “and a most unlikely place it was. We had to build our log cabin on the edge of a ridgo, while wo labored to subdue the muck. Tbs marks of bears’ claws were deep in the trees right around round us. Ten years later I have killed a hundred snakes in the three quarters of a mile between my own house and my father’s, so you may guess what it was then There they all were—rattlesnakes, vipers, ad ders and copperheads.” “And what sort of a snake is the copper head?" I ask"d. - ' “A mean thing, A rattlesnake rattles, a vi per hisses, an adder spits, n black snake wliis tlee, a water-suako blows, but a copperhead jtut tneakt!" Inquisitive.—All tbo inquisitive children are not confined to Harper’t Drawer. A little three-year old in this city, a few mornings since, stood by his mother’s knee looking his baby brother—a few months old—in the face.— At length ha inquired,“Mamma, did God make the baby?’’ “Yes, dear,” was the reply. Touch ing one of the organs to which lie referred, with his finger, he continued—“Did God put on his little ears?” “Certainly, my child,”said the mother. Waiting a minute as though in a brown study, or pondering some weighty prob lem, he again bToke out—“Well, I don’t seo why God couldn’t put some moro hair on his head as well as put on liis ears !” Wellcome prepares the most valuable pain oursr wc ever had in our store.” y0 s yf F.
