The Kentucky Platform.
If tee platform adopted by the Kentucky
Democrats at their State convention which
assembled in Louisville on Wednesday rep
resents thrir sentiments they are not in har
mony with the administration on the silver
and civil service reform issues. The plat
form commends the President for giving the
country a national, clean and economic ad
ministration and for vetoing pension bills, but
it does not approve of his silver and civil
service reform policies. It remains to
be seen how man}’ other State conventions
will agree with that of Kentucky before the
meeting of the national convention. The
Kentucky convention may be considered to
be the first of the State conventions which
will have a direct influence on the national
campaign, and its utterances, therefore, will
attract great attention.
Of course it could have said nothing less
about the President. Even Republicans do
not deny that he is an honest President, and
they ore willing to admit that he has giveti
the country a safe and an economical ad
ministration. But are the Kentucky Demo
crats quite sure that the planks in their
platform respecting the currency and civil
service reform will meet with the approval
of the National convention? The civil ser
vice plank means that they are .in
favor of going back to the spoils
system, and if they possessed the
honesty and frankness which they accord to
the President they would have said so.
Their declaration that “we favor honest
civil service reform” doesn’t deceive any
body, especially when they distinctly an
nounce that they are opposed to the present
civil service system.
There is nothing more certain than that
the reform of the civil service which the
President is trying to carry out has come to
stay. Neither the Democratic nor the Re
publican party will dare to announce in its
national platform that it favors the repeal
of the civil service law. The
main reason why the President is
so popular with the people is because
he has enforced that law. If he is renomi
nated it will be largely because he has en
forced it, and because, if re-elected, he will
continue to enforce it, notwithstanding the
opposition of the politicians.
Congressman Breckcnridge stated in his
speech before the convention that although
Mr. Cleveland was not all that every Demo
crat would have him he was better than the
best Republican who ever lived. By that
he meant to say that the politicians would
oppose his renomination if they thought
they could elect anybody else.
The Democratic party is largely responsi
ble for the civil service reform law. The
people demanded it, and their demand had to
be acceded to. They do not want it repeal
ed. On the contrary, they want it enforced,
and it looks now as if they intend that the
next President shall be a man who will en
The currency plank of the platform is not
a frank expression of opinion on the silver
issue. The issue is evaded. What is said
may mean one thing or" another. In view
of the fact, however, that the convention
was guarded in its indorsement of the Presi
dent it is fair to presume that its purpose
was to go as far as it dared in the direction
of favoring silver. The Kentucky platform
will hardly be taken as a model by Demo
crats of many of the other States.
In a Nameless Grave.
The body of the girl who was murdered
at Rahway, N. J., several weeks ago, and
concerning whose identity the whole wun
try has been more or less interested, was
buried Tuesday in the Presbyterian ceme
tery at Rahway. Hundreds of people were
present at the funeral services, nnd several
rather curious incidents occurred. The
Rev. Mr. Gray conducted the services, and,
among other things, he said: “For weeks
this mutilated body has been the focus of
many eyes and the subject of patient and
protracted investigation. But the shrouded
form is nameless, the assassin still skulks in
the gloom, while those who loved the living
are not here to pay their Inst tribute to the
The efforts made to discover the identity of
the murdered girl were extraordinary. All
of the great New York newspapers had re

and various wore the stories they furnished.
The IFor/ci-published a statement a week or
more ago to the effect, that the girl was Ana
Christine Larson, and then' seemed to be no
reason to longer doubt that the mystery hail
been solved. Further investigation, how
ever, showed that the World was mistaken,
and the day aftor the funeral that journal
admitted that Ana Christine Larsen was
alive and in Now York. The Herald also
claimed the credit of identifying the girl,
but its story was not satisfactory. At
the funeral one woman appeared in mourn
ing, claiming that the dead girl was
her sister, Mary Domnn, and another went
into hysterics. The latter insisted that the
body was that of a dearly loved friend
named Maggie. No attention was paid to
these claims, as it was believed that they
were mode for no other purpose than to ob

Gen. Thomas L. Rosser, of Virginia, has
written a letter to Maj. Holmes Conrad, of

atone for his cruel barbarism during the
war. We have not forgotten that during

the brave men of the Union armies whom I

THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1887.
While other cities suffered great loss on
j account of labor troubles last year, Phila
i delphia was almost entirely free from such
Among the causes assigned for the ab
sence of disastrous differences between capi
tal and labor in that city are two which de
serve consideration. The Philadelphia
branch of the Peace Society interferes
when there is a prospect of a strike and
generally induces the disagreeing parties
to submit their differences to a board
of arbitration. The board’s decisions are
so fair that appeals from them are rarely
taken. In this way interruptions to busi
ness are prevented, and neither capitalists
nor laborers lose money. ‘The other cause is
the practical application of the principle
of profit sharing. It is alleged that Phila
delphia capitalists, in no inconsiderable
number, believed that the offer of a share
of their profits to employes would excite in
the latter an interest in the success of the
business they were engaged in. Trial proved
the belief well founded. Profit-sharing has
been introduced into quite a number of
manufacturing und commercial establish
ments, securing more vigorous service upon
the part of employes and almost entirely
removing the risks of labor collisions. 1
The wisdom displayed by the capitalists
and laborers of Philadelphia has not only
prevented loss by reason of labor troubles,
but it has given the city remarkable pros
perity.' Industrial establishments have
increased rapidly in number and
are operated to their full
capacity. A feature of the increase is the
large number of sinull manufactories. These
for the most part are owned by small capi
talists and former laborers who have set up
for themselves. Another evidence of Phila
delphia’s prosperity is the fact that more
than 20,000 houses are under contract for
erection during the present year.
1 Other cities would do well to imitate Phil
adelphia’s example. Labortroublesandpros
perity do not ga hand in hand, j
The Florida Contest.
There is a slight prospect that the Florida
Senatorial contest will be settled in a day or
two. The hope is expressed that the Demo
cratic caucus will select a candidate to
night. It is certain that both the Legisla
ture and the people are tired of the contest,
and would gladly see the end of it. The
other business of the Legislature is retarded
by it, and it begins to look as if the end of
the session would be reached before legisla
tion that is both important and necessary is
It is doubtful if any of the letters which
have been published to injure Bloxham have
cost him a vote. His answers to those
which concerned him have been prompt
and satisfactory. The efforts to injure
Perry*by charging him with using the pa
tronage of his office to advance Ids canvass
have been without effect. The fact is that
both men are so well and favorably known
that if either wins it must be on his merits.
If the caucus does not make a choice to
night it would not lie at all surprising if
both Bloxham and Perry should be dropped.
The party cannot afford to waste so much
time in a deadlock that shows so few signs
of breaking. There are good Demckirats
besides Perry and Bloxham in Florida, and
if the caucus cannot make a choiqe to-night
it would act wisely by see king?

Charles T Parsons, of Northampton,
Mass., seems to have forgotten that slavery
in this country has been abolished. Jtpeeins
that he makes a business of selling Immi
grants. His plan is to go to New York and
induce immigrants who have no money to
sign “cast iron” contracts by which they
agree to work for a specified period at wages
less than half the ruling rates, and to for
feit everything duo them if they fail to
comply with their agreement. He then sells
the contracts to New England farmers, gen
erally clearing S4OO a month. A circular
issued by the scamp says: ."We would
rather have tue immigrants ignorant of our
labor, for such wisdom proves foolishness
to their employers.” He deals principally
in Danes, Bohemians, Poles, Russians and
Swedes, refusing to have anything to do
with those who can speak English.
Four years ago a lovely Southern girl,
whose home is in Central Alabama, secured
a clerkship in the office of the Fourth Audi
tor of the United States Treasury. Her
salary was barely sufficient to support her
self and her widowed mother. A short
time ago she received a letter from a Birm
ingham bank, asking the lowest cash price
she would tako for n farm of 100 acres near
that city. She made inquiries and discov
ered that coal had lieen found on tho farm.
She wrote to the bank and offered to sell for
SIOO,OOO. Her offer was promptly accepted,
and now she provisos to whirl a while in
fashionable Washington society. It goes
without saying that she will enjoy herself.
Gen. T. M. Logon, of Richmond, who is
described as “the quiet little financier who
engineered the Richmond Terminal ileal,”
thus expresses himself about tho interstate
commerce law: “The effect of tho law has
not yet lieguu to show on the earnings of the
railroatls. From what study I have given
tho matter I have concluded that there will
be no direct interference with the railroad
earnings. Whatever change there may be
in that direction will come gradually from
the unsettling of the business of the entire
country. As business is unsettled it will
naturally affect the railroad business, and
so cause large injury.”
It is said the reason Mr. Rlaine is going
to Kurope is to keep “out of the way of the
party strife that is bound to nriso in the
next year. He proposes to stay over there
until after the national conventions have
met and chosen their candidates, and if the
Republicans see fit to call on him while he
is in a foreign land to take the leadership he
will undoubtedly respond.” Of course he
will respond, but the chances are that that
his wire workers will spare no effort to se
cure his nomination.
Ex-Senator Stephen W. Dorsey has just
returned from a trip to Europe. Ho says
that he is out of politics, hut that he is in
favor of Blaine for President. He is confi
dent of Republican success in 1888. The ex-

publicans w ith “soap." Since he is out of
politics he will not try to carry it again.
His confidence in Republican success next
year means nothing.

From the Baltimore American.
Everybody knows of Edwin A. Abbey, the
clever artist whose drawings for Uarjier's of
“She Stoops to Conquer," “Sally in Our Alley,”
and this month of “Kitty of Coleraine," are so
much admired. His friends say that, it is one of
Mr. Abbey's little eccentricities that whenever
some piece of good work just finished partic
ularly pleases him. he gives vent to k , feelings
in some utterly unconventional way. Not long
ago a lady called on him just while he was fin
ishing the best of the Kitty of Coleraine pic
tures—“ The Devil a Pitcher was Whole in Cole
raine." He was just in the working mood, so
lie begged her to sit down for a few minutes
until he had finished.
She sat down, and presently Abbey forgot all
about her. He worked and worked, and finally
he completed the picture. He stepped hack,
took a good look, then gave a long-drawn
whistle or satisfaction. The next moment the
whistle brighted up into a rattling melody, and
Abbey “did" a first-class jig tliat would have
done honor to a professionel. The lady, sur
prised, but not to be outdone, commenced to
"pat,” but that recalled the artist to himself,
lie turned and saw the lady, flushed slightly,
and apologized. But the apology wasn’t neces
sary, for it isn’t every one who nas the honor of
seeing one of America’s leading artists doing a
little “pas seul.”

A Foolish Suitor.
From Washington Letter to the Baltimore
That “the best laid plans of mice and men
gang aft aglee" has almost a daily illustration.
The particular instance referred to is the cose of
a young Washington blood, who, for a number
of years, has laid siege to the heart of a young
lady whose father is one of the wealthiest men
in town. The old gentleman looked approvingly
on the satisfactory progress that the young man
was making, but thought it would be well to see
whether it was the daughter or the money that
he wooed so ardently. So one bright day he
called the would-be son-in-law to him, and
told him blandly that he was not averse to
the marriage, but that when it was con
summated he must take care of her himself
and not expect her to take care of him,
or, in other words, that he could not support
them. This was done solely as a blind, for the
pater familias doubted not that the boy was
sincere in his affections. And so they parted,
the fond lover avowing his unutterable attach
ment, and his entire willingness to shoulder the
responsibilities of his prospective new life. But
the old gentleman experiment worked like a
charm. The young man has never showed up
from that day to this, and now “all bets are off,”
as it w ere. The young lady- and her father are
congratulating themselves at the narrow
escape the bank nccount has made, and the
booby is lookingurouud fora hole to crawl in.
Meantime, another fellow, with good hard horse
sense, came along and married the girl, and the
generous father-in-law gave them a goodly pile
He Went Back.
From the Dakota Bell.
He was a little fellow, not over 12 years old,
and he was sitting liehiud a box over at the
Omaha depot the other morning softly crying
and looking very dirty and forlorn.
“What's the matter?” we asked.
“Hain’t nothin’ the matter.” he said defiantly,
sitting up straight, hastily brushing away his
tears ami pushing back his jacket a little so as
to display the handle of an old revolver in his
pocket. Then he looked off across the river at
the strange buildings and lost his bravery, and
buried his head again and sobbed through his
"Oh, mister, I’ve been a-runnin’ aw-ay, an’ I
want ’o go home.”
“Wliat made you run away?”
“I thought it would be nice, hut it hain’t, no
ithaint.’and he rested his face in his hands
and looked the picture of woe. “Dick Dagger
had a heap o’ fnn, hut I hain’t had a bit.”
"Who w-as Dick Dagger?"
“Didn't you ever hear o’ him? He was the
boy scout of the Rockies, an’ I wanted to be like
him. There hain’t Indians what’ll hurt a feller
round here, is there?”
"1 wouldn’t shoot ’em if there was. Dick shot
’em, but 1 don’t want to. I want to get back
koine, but mebby I never will again;” and once
more his tears flowed.
“Where did you live?”
“Oh, I lived down at Marion, in Illinois, and it
just about killed me riding in that old freight
car. nn’ 1 hurt my knee, an’ I'm cold and hain't
had no breakfast, nor supper, neither 1 wish
I’d never heard of Dick- I don't see how he got
along so well and If I ever get home again and
see my-itiy -my—ma—" but the thought of his
mother was too much for him.
"I don’t want to hunt Indians or bears or
nothin’ nor rescue no maidens, an' I’m tired of
that old thing!” and he pulled a rusty revolver'
out of his pocket that hadn’t been fired for ten
years and threw it across the track. “Please
mister, get me something to eat an’ I’ll work ali
day for you,” and he looked up pitifully and
straightened his little cap oil his CHriy head.
We took him along and he ate three or four
meals in one, but even after that he didn’t sav a
won! about exterminating the Indian. The next
day a grave looking father arrived looking for a
very homesick boy, and they went back to
gether. So the government lost another scout
but an anxious mother got buck a bov who will
never run away again.

The coal beds of China are five times as large
as those of all Europe, while gold, silver, lead,
tin, copper, iron, marble and petroleum are all
found in the greatest abundance, Owing to the
prejudice of the people the mines have never
been worked to any extent, it being the popular
belief in China that, if these mines are opened,
thousands of demons and spirits imprisoned in
the earth would come forth and fill the country
with war and suffering.
They never have any breach of promise cases
in China. A future Chinese belle is not three
days old before her parents have betrothed her

of matrimony was not exactly a cheerful one.

A REMARKABLE ILLUSTRATION Of the puzzling
. migratory habits of the herring has just been
observed on the southwest coast of Norway, at
the so-called Jaederen, between the towns of
Stavanger and Egorsund. This district used to
be one of the richest herring-fishing grounds in
Norway during the spring, but about tw enty
five years ago the fish suddenly and completely
disappeared from the coast. Last month enor
mous shoals once more came under shore, first
"striking land" at the same spot as in former
times. The quality of the herring is exactly the
same as it was twenty-five years ago, anil the
shoals were accompanied by numerous "her
A “redoute,” or masked ball, was given re
cently at the Hotel Continental, in Paris, by the
young men of the aristocratic clubs in compli
meut to the fastest women of the theatrical
world, and others no less fast who are not on
the stage. A considerable number of ladies of
quality got themselves invited, and kept on
tneir masks all night. At 3 in the morning there
was a farandole in which all went dancing off
to the Francis I. gallery, where they supped in
parties of ten. The cotillion was an opportun
ity for presenting costly tokens to pretty dan
senses. and danseurs availed themselves of it to
do so. The great object of the young club men
was to bring about a return to the sort of dissi
pation which flourished under the empire.
For some time there have been rumors of a
revolutionary conspiracy widespread among the
aristocracy of Russia, having for its object the
removal of Czar Alexander 111. and the crown
ing in his stead of the eldest son of Alexander
11. by his morganatic wife, the Princess Ilolgo
rouki. Failing in that, the efforts would be cen
tred on putting the young Dolgorouki in suc
cession to the t zar instead of the present Czare
vitch. the last named Prince being both an in
valid and an imbecile. Young Dolgorouki is a lid
of splendid character and attainments, who
would at once give Russia a liberal constitu
tional government. In the eyes of the people
there is little or no blemish on his parentage.
The Dolgorouki family is one of the oldest and
noblest in Russia, its memliers having been
great princes before the Romanoffs were heard
of. The present Czar is a liolstein-Gottorp, far
more German than Russian.
A noon story Is told alien! an amiable gentle
man who once represented this country at Lon
don In the capacity of Consul General. It is not
necessary to give his name, but it is sufficient to
say that he was appointed by Gen. Grant. One
of the members of ids family was a young snip
of a boy just out of school. The Cohsul General
desired to find gome employment for the youth
aud not: wishing to give him a place in his own
office had him attached to the American Lega
tion at a nominal salary. In a little while the
young Ilian began receiving social attentions
from which the father wes disbarred. This con
tinued until the boy knew everybody in London
worth knowing, while the father, so far as social
distinction went, wns a practical nonentity.
Finally the Consul General iiecaifte so annoyed
about it that lie removed his son from the lega
tion and sent him liack to the United States
He said it was more than he could stand to sup

Odessa papers report that in the village of
Obodny, in the Government of Podolia, a peas
ant, reputed to be very wealthy and to have
money hoarded in his house, rseeived a visit
lately from throe venerable looking men,
dressed in garments of a somewhat clerical
fashion, who informed him that they were
Christ and the Apostles Peter and Paul. The
sham Christ said to him; "I have given you
great wealth, but you have omitted to exercise
Charity, so I have come to reckon with you
Give me your money.” The terrified peusant
fell on his knees, begged for mercy, and gave
over ,v*l sliver roubles, declaring It was alfthe
money he had ill the house. They were not sat
isfled, and he sent off his servant to collect
money from neighbors who were indebted to
hitn. The report of the presence in the village
of such holy visitors brought a crowd to the
spot Hut the imposters mistook their motives
and iiplieved they liad come to apprehend them.
One of them drew a knife from under his
clothes nisi attacked a i>casant. whereupon the
crowd seemed to have become enlightened as to
the true character of the trio, and taking cour
age, overpowered them.
