CLKYKI.AXD, May 30.-It is some fivi years since the remains of the martyrec president, James A. Gurlield, were secretlj removed from the public vault of the T-nkt View cemetery to King's Safe Deposil bank, on Euclid avenue. And all this timi the public has believed that the bod] lay where it had been taken on thai greatest day in Cleveland's history wheii it was escorted to Lake View ceme' tery from the catafalque in the publit square. There the body was placed in tin 8cb.olii.-ld family vault, and from there, ii was supposed, taken to the public vault Never before had there "been so large i throng of people in the city, and never be- fore had so many men of national fame been here at one time and on one errand To the last hour of his consciousness ever) Clevelundcr who saw that event and wai old enough to even dimly understand il will keep that day in vivid remembrance The Military Guard. During many years the dramatic interesi in the spot was enhanced by the presenci of United States soldiers. Night and day, through the heat of summer and the wet and biting cold and snowVof winter upoi the lake shore, armed sentinels paced tc and fro before the door of the vault in which the remains of Guiteau's vie tim were supposed to be peacefully rest- ing. A narrow and deep path was worn in the turf, traces of which are visible ever now. During all of President Arthur's ad- ministration the soldiers remained, and their dreary vigil never once relaxed, and it was not until after the inauguration ol President Cleveland that they were with- drawn. Thus it was that this yreat event in Cleveland's history Was in a manner pro- longed by a solemn sort of military pa geantry during a peribd of four years. Taken to the Heart of the City. And then it was deemed necessary thai the sacred remains should be more care- fully secured thnn in the public-vault of a KINO'S SAFK DEPOSIT BANK. large cemetery, and the transfer to the vaults of the hank in the great- est sucrecy. Here they have been stored away amoug bonds and stock securities, and family plate and jewels, and other precious things, and thousands of passing feel have hurried by within two rods of tlii'm every day. The portion of Euclid avenue where the Safe Deposit and Trust bault is is one of the busiest spots of Cluyeland, and there is quite a roar of traffic about it during every work day of the week. It is a tall, handsome structure with marble and granite trimmings to its front. On one side of it and at its mar are alleys. Oponing upon the rear alley are heavy double doors of iron, barred find studded so that the walls themselves would offer ft more promising field for burglars than would they. A Jealously Guarded Secret. The secret of tbe transfer has been most jealously Indeed, to Mrs. Garfleld and a very limited number of the dead president's stanchest friends. Mr.1 King, the man most interested in the bank in question, is one of these Iwt, He is a member of the Christian church, an Garfleld, and had been Garfleld's lifelong friend. It is barely possible that the bank cashier knew the fact. No one else about the .building did. The watchmen who night aud diiy kept vigil over the strong boxes of the depositors as little sus- picion that they had the remain? of a one- time president of the United States in their keeping as that they were watchers over dead King William of Germany. Considering how difficult was the tank, the transfer of Garfield's body from the A VIEW OF THE MOMUMKMT. cemetery to the heart of the oily wlthuUt awakening K suspicion was really a .a markalily well planned and CAreful piece of work. Three CofflnA. When it wan decided that the only way the remains could be spirited away was by jutigliiiK with coffins the report was indus- triously cfrculnfM that the original casket innrte for Gen.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May young women belonging to the best families in Miles, a village of Bibb county, were walk- ing along the street there a few days ago when they met three negro women named Maudy Johnyou, Tilly Belcher and Dora Carter, who would not yield the sidewalk. They rail against the young ladies, push- ing them in-the gutter and addressing in- sulting language to them. Masked white men Thursday night went to the negro women's residences, dragged them from their beds and flogged them with lashes. Six Miles is to be stirred up over the affair, and it is alleged that the negroes are nuking threats of violence and arfuing. Difficulties In the Way of Ballot ALBANY, May Secretary of State Benedict, who United States public printer, ban found some serious dif- ficulties in eanylng out the new ballot re- form law. He says the law requires the numbering of all ballots as they are being printed, and not by a numbering machine. If a ballot is spoiled in printing it must be duplicated or the record will not be complete. Mr. Benedict says that there are not five presses in tbe state that can do this, especially in the five days required by the law. Should tbe ballots be destroyed by flre after they are in the clerk's office the town would be disfranchised. The Luther AUnlBtorlnm.
