The Convict Question.
Throughout its present session the New
York Legislature has been trying to discover
some way to employ convicts that would give
general satisfaction. The labor societies
object to their employment in the manufac
ture of articles of any kind, either by hand
or with the aid of machinery, and the tax
;layers object to their luting idle. The aim
is to make them self-supporting without
bringing them into competition with arti
A bill passed the lower house of the Legis
lature on Thursday providing for the em
ployment of convicts on county roads. It is
probable that it will pass the Senate, as it
apjiears to be more acceptable than any
other bill on the subject that has teen pro
posed. • Although many of the counties of
New York have excellent roads there is
doubtless enough lad romls in the State to
furnish employment for all the State's con
victs for several years.
This convict problem is a bothersome one
in all the States. It has occupied the at
tention of the Legislature of this State, and
will undoubtedly occupy it again at the July
se*iion. The lease system is not satisfactory
for very man} - reasons, all of which have
been stated time and again. The propo
sition which the Governor made to the leg
islature relative to an experimental farm
has merit, and ought to receive very careful
attention. The importance of separating
the young convict* and those guilty of minor
offenses from the hardened offenders, with
the view of giving the former a chance to
reform, is too great to pass unnoticed. One
of the leading purposes of the Governor's
proposition is the reform of convicts who
are capable of being reformed.
The Legislature, as soon as It meets in
July, should determine to make some dispo
sition of the convict question before it ad
journs. If it cannot agree upon any 1 letter
plan than that which finds favor in New
York, let that be adopted. The roads of
the State arc in a deplorable condition, and
the counties, doubtless, would gladly sup
port the convicts while improving them.
The cost of such support would not he groat.
In fact, it would bo almost nothing in com
parison with the benefits which the counties
would receive from good roads.
Gen. D. H, Hill, President of- the Middle
Georgia Mechanical and Agricultural Col
lege at Milledgeville, whose interesting war
articles in the Cent ary have been widely
read, is the author of a hook that has be
come an “issue.” It seems that while he was
President of Davidson College, North Caroli
na, he wrote an algebra. Intending, no doubt,
to counteract as far as possible the misrep
resentations too often found In text books
written by Northern men, he incorporated
into his algebra a number of examples not
at all complimentary to the Yankee. For
instance, on one page he gave this:
“A Yankee mixes a certain number of
wooden nutmegs, which cost one-quarter of
a cent a piece, with a quantity of real nut
megs worth 4c. a piece, and sells the w hole
assortment for #44, and gains #4 75 by the
fraud. How many wooden nutmegs were
The Chicago Tribune, which never lets an
opportunity jass to stir up prejudice against
the South, mokes the algebra the text of an
expression of virtuous indignation on ac
count of what it is pleased to term Gen.
Hill's “diabolical” attempt to stir up preju
dice against the North. It would have been
better, perlinps, if Gen. Hill had omitted
from his algebra the example quoted and
others like it. No good is accomplished by
trying to prejudice the people of one section
of the country against those of another.
Nevertheless, Gen. Hill’s attempt at
retaliation on account of the misrepresenta
tions found in text-books prepared by North
ern writers is not without excuse. Every
well-informed Southern teacher knows that
text-looks from Northern sources are full of
misstatements resiiecting tho South. This
is especially Due of school histories of the
United States, and even when the in
justice of such reflections is made
apparent to the authors, correc
tion of tho obnoxious passages is
refused. As an illustration the following
instance may be cited: Sometime ago a
Georgia teacher wrote to a w r ell-known
literary man of Boston, the author of a
school history of the United States, and
called his attention to certain misstatements
concerning the Confederate armies. The
Boston man admitted that he luul misrepre
sented facts, hut ho positively refused to
make any correction.
It would have been better if tho objection
able problems had been left out of Gen.
Hill’s algebra, hut as long as Northern text
books intentionally misrepresent tho South
neither the Chicago Tribune nor any other
Northern paper has good reason to complain
The Hartford Courant makes a sugges
tion regarding Editor O’Brien’s visit to Can
ada that is worth repeating. "Tliegoing of
O’Brien to Canada to take the field against
the Governor General,” says the Courant,
“is one of the most significant events of mod
ern times, for it is a demonstration of faith
in the influence of public opinion upon the
actual government of nations; it is a demo
cratic movement a long way in advance of
nay other recalled. And this is true with
out the least reference to the cause of Irish
independence or at home rule which O’Brien
represents. What an advance it is on Fo
nianism: how infinitely more effective it is
for O’Brien’s purpose than a Fenian inva
sion of Canada. It is war on the Inrgcst
scale yet attempted, for it is a moral war.
If this Irish apostle and his friends are wise
enough not to provoke any violence, and
not to reply to any, a great demonstration
will be made of popular power in high
Sam Jones and Sam Small have offended
ceiiain prominent citizens of Rome,
Chattanooga and Anniston. Upon the
occasion of the recent meeting in Rome of
business men from the three cities, a steam

The Street Paving Question.
The street paving question will keep bob
bing up all the rime in this city until some
satisfactory plan is decided upon for paving
all the principal streets. Of course no,
blame attaches to the Council for not doing
more in the way of street paving than it
does. It would gladly pave all the streets
within the next year or two if it had the
means. Mr. Thomas, the Chairman of the
Street and Lane Committee, would like to
build a monument to liis name in the shape
of well paved streets, and the people would
la- glad for him to have such a monument,
but where is the money to come from? That
question must he answered before any gen
eral system of street paving can be adopted.
A good deal of money is now spent upon
the streets in one way and another, but it
would be difficult for anybody to print out
exactly wh-we it is spent. About all that in
done at present is to move sand from one
place to another to fill up low places, and
thus prevent pools of stagnant water from
What is chiefly desired is to get rid of the
sand. The streets are dry and very dust}’
within a day or two after a good rain, and
for the majority of the days of a year it is
unpleasant to wait along Hull and other
streets. It is out of the question, of course,
to think of putting down asphalt pave
ments. Even If the streets were only a
third as wide as they are the cost of that
sort of a pavement would be greater than
the city and the property owners would be
willing to bear. If a general system of
paving is decided upon some other material
must he adopted.
Some days ago the Morning News sug
gested that the sand mixed with elav and
the refuse of the turpentine stills might
make a good roadway. These materials
might not answer the purpose, hut it would
not cost much to give them a trial. If they
would not do shells might be tried. It is
certain that a good hard roadbed can be
made with them. It may bo urged that the
dust from a shell road is just as bad a?that
from the sandy streets. It is true that the
dust from a shell road is objectionable, hut
it would not be noticeable except on windy
•lays. At present every passing horse or
team raises a cloud of dust—dust that is
foul with the accumulations of a century.
A shell road could lie constructed at a
small expense. The roadway need not le
as wide as tho street. It need not be wider
than would be sufficient to accommodate
there carriages abreast. The remaining
space could be turned into a grass plat.
The sand that would have to be removed to
make room for the shells would raise tie
plats to the level of the sidewalks. A road
way of the width and material suggested
could be easily and cheaply dampened lo
prevent dust on windy days. Let Council
man Thomas devote his leisure hours to
this street paving question. He may hit
upon some plan for giving the people relief
from the inconveniences and discomforts
of sandy streets.
The Chattanooga papers announce the
death of Allen Warden Hatch at the age of
Somo years ago Hatch was the merchant
king of Wisconsin. He resided at Milwau
kee and enjoyed all the comforts and luxu
ries that his fortune of #2,OOOjXIO could pur
chase for him. A false step in speculation
caused him to lose heavily, and very soon
all his vast possessions were swept away.
Broken down in health, ho went to Cjiatta
nooga, hoping that a wanner climate would
prolong his life nt least for a few years. He
lingered hut a few months, however, and
then died penniless and with none hut
strangers around him. Aid from the Ma
sonic fraternity alone prevented his body
from being buried in tho potter’s field.
Hatch’s story is a warning against specu
lation, and young men would do well to
heed it. He accumulated his fortune by
years of patient, legitimate toil, and then
lost it by trying to increase it by question
aide means. Had he been content with the
fruits of his toil, which were abundant
enough, he would not have become in his
old age a tax upun the charity of strangers.
The business which is not liased ujxin
speculation is best. A fortune acquired in
that kind of business usually brings honors
with it, because as he accumulates it the
possessor generally develops traits which
make men respect him.
Says the Dakota Hell: “Tho Sioux City
(Ta.) papers are making the charge against a
minister who recently went there to deliver
a series of temperance lectures that he
packed his trunk and left the city the first
time he was shot at on tho street. One of
them claims to lie able to prove that he was
simply fired at with a six-shooter and not
the more deadly repeating rifle generally
used on clergymen in that city. ‘There is
no reason,’ urges this paper, ‘why the cleri
cal gentleman should go off on the trot
when by staying and going properly heeled,
and not letting tho opposition speakers get
tho drop on him, he might have accom
plished much good.’ ” The Hell doubtless
intended to make a joke, hut it came nearer
tolling tho truth about the condition of af
fairs in Sioux City.
Tho Paris correspondent of tho New York
Jlerakt quotes Gen. Boulanger as saying
that “Germany will not attack us because
she knows we are strong, and the Germans
are a prudent race. The French army
cannot for a moment hopo for any ally, for
there is not a single power in Europe that
lias confidence in us on account of our un
certain policy, hut we do not need anybody.
I consider war as inevitable.” This utter
ance indicates that Gen. Boulanger believes
that France will attack Germany.
Opinions differ as to the nature of the
malady which affects Mr. Parnell. A Lon

that he has Bright's disease, and that his
chances of reeovory are doubtful. A dis

York World says that ho has dyspepsia, and
that regular exercise will soon cure him.
Whatever may he the nature of his malady,
there is no doubt that Mr. Parnell is sick
and that his friends are seriously alarmed

A BANK CASHIER'S ROMANCE.
He Borrows Money from the Bank, Pays
Part Back and Is Arrested.
From the London News.
Rather a romantic story was told at the
Brighton quarter sessions recently in the course
of the trial of Charles Dorey, Chief Cashier of
the Brighton Union Bank, for embezzlement.
The prisoner, early in life, was assistant secre
tary to the Irish Church Mission Society, and
when about 21 years old became acquainted
with one of the late partners of the bank in
which he was ultimately employed. His connec
tion with the bank extended over thirty years.
The expenses of his family, three sons anathree
daughters, as well as of illness, made demands
on him that he was unable to meet with his
salary. Two of the sons who had gone to the
universities had died. In 1870 Dorey had great
expectations from a single lady who had a
fortune of £28,000, and gave him to under
stand that he would receive £12,000 and his
daughter £l,OOO. When she died, however, it
was found that she had destroyed her will only
the day previously. In the meantime the ac
cused hail obtained possession of some £B,OOO
belonging to the bank, but he restored £2,000
from the proceeds of a legacy, and although the
misappropriations had extended over many
years the} - ceased four years ago. Mr. Bosley,
for the defense, called witnesses as to charac
ter. A memorial to the court, signed by 150
principal residents, 100 being customers of the
fianlt, was handed In on behalf of the prisoner,
and it was also stated that a guarantee society
had paid £1,500: so that the bank had sustained
no loss, while ail the securities were untampered
with. The Recorder thought that two things
weighed in the prisoner's behalf, namely, his
restoring some of the money and the assistance
he had given in putting the figures of the bank
right; still he had abused the great confidence
reposed in him, and he must sentence him to
imprisonment for twelve months with hard
THE “SOCIAL EDITOR.”
A Specimen of the Trials Which He Has
From the Boston Transcript.
“I say, you: you’re a reporter, ain’t you?’’
sir, I'm a—journalist.”
“Well, that s what I thought. I’ve got an
item for you. We had a big wedding down to*
our house last night. My daughter (whose
father you will probably notice, is one of our
leading citizens) was united in the bonds of wed
lock-that’s the proper caper, I believe? That’s
v.-hat I thought. Let's see; where was I? O,
ves. Was united in the bonds of wedlock with
Mr. Montgomery Bangs, son of the celebrated
John Bangs—l suppose he was celebrated for
something; everybody is, you know—son of the
celebrated John Bangs, deceased, for many
years resident of this thriving burg. Be sure
and put the ‘thriving burg’ in. I invented that,
and I’m rather proud of it. And you might
mention thatnne thousand invitations were sent
out for the reception at the residence of the
parents of the happy bride. There, that’ll give
you a good item. Good day; I’ve only five min
utes to catch the train.”
“But. hold on. You say there were a thou
sand invitations sent out. How much of a gath
ering was there? I want to mention some of the
distinguished people there, you know.”
“O, liother that? The fact is, the weather was
sort o’ threatening, and most of the folks had
engagements, you see, so there wasn’t anybody
there but me and the old woman, and my daugh
ter and ber husband, and old Mrs. Smith, who
lives next door; and who happened in to borrow
a jug of milk. But that don’t matter. J ust give
the main facts. What does the public care
about the details.
Wrestling on Horseback.
From n San Francisco tetter.
Wrestling on horseback has taken the place of
mounted sword contests on the Pacific slope.
On Sunday, May 1, Seymour and Mathews ran
their secoml excursion to Santa Rosa and about
1,000 people availed themselves of the $1 trip.
At Kronek’s Park dancing was indulged in until
3p. m., when Sam Mathews and Sergt. Darts
were introduced to wrest le four bouts on horse
back. Thus exciting sport has only just been in
troduced to the public, and the match was very
interesting. C. M. Anderson was selected to act
as referee and Sergt. Charles Crowley as time
At the word “go” the riders dashed at each
other, and after sparring about ten minutes for
a hold Mathews secured a neck grip on Davis,
which the latter tried very hard to break. Davis,
finding himself in danger, spurred his horse to
try and get away from liis opponent. Mathews
would not be denied, and ho was dragged on to
Davis’ horse Tha- struggle then became fierce.
Both men struggled on the one horse until they
worked themselves down on the side of the
saddle, ami it looked as though Mathews was
getting the best of it, when Davis suddenly
threw ids horse and gave Mathews a flying fall.
The interest takeu by the crowd was very great,
and the Santa Rosa folks seemed delighted with
the first bout of mounted wrestling they had
The second bout was very spirited, and was
won liy Mathews. The third was disputed, and
the referee ordered the men to wrestle again.
Mathews won the fall after a hard struggle.
The last and final limit was a repetition of the
first, and resulted in a win for Davis, who se
cured the fall by again throwing his horse.
Everylxidy was pleased with the exhibition,
and no doubt when this sport is better known it
will prove very interesting.

The Man Was Successful.
From the Fhilarlelph ia Call.
A crowd of boys, men and women were sur
rounding a man. a cart and a mule up In Itrew
erytown this morning. The man was trying to
induce the mule to pull the cart out of the rut.
By way of inducemant he several times at
tempted to hit the recalcitrant animal with a
short cowhide. As the distance he kept was too
respectful, the mule WM never touched, hut he
kicked all the same.
"Vv, you don'd cure dot mool of kicking?”
asked a rotund resident.
"Mules can't be cured o' kickin'," replied the
owner of the cart ami animal.
"Oh. yes dey can. ray friend. Efery dime ho

Rev John F. Clymer. a Methodist preacher in
Boston, preached last Sunday on “Boston's Re
ception to the Hawaiian Queen.” The text was
from Matthew xii., 42: "The Queen from the
Soutn shall rise up in the judgment with this
generation, and shall condemn it; for she came
from the uttermost, parts of the earth to hear
the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater
than Solomon is here." The preacher, accord
ing to the report of the Bustoy Post, likened the
Queen of Sheba, who traveled far to see the
splendor of Solomon's eourt, to Queen Kapio
lani, "who came from her home in the far dis
tant islands to Boston to see the splendor and
the civilization of this world.”
Patrick Gillan, age 14, of Tompkinsville, S.
1., was arrested on Saturday for driving a mule
which had a sore breast. He was employed by
Brady & Sullivan as a driver, and at first re
fused to drive the mule. Mr. Sullivan, it is
stated, insisted, and the boy consented with re
luctance. Justice Walter tloyle fined the boy
$lO and costs; which amounted to $3 50. The boy
was unable to pay the fine, and his employer re
fusing to pay it for him, he was sent to jail for
thirteen and a half days. The boy's mother,
who is dependent upon his earnings, is a widow
and has several young children in a destitute
condition. Several prominent gentlemen on
Staten Island, who have taken an interest in the
case, will investigate the Justice's right to im
pose the fine on the boy, who was obliged to
drive the mule, instoad of upon the owner.

By order of the German Crown Prince, Prof.
Virchow has recently made a physiognomic ex
amination of the skulls of thoso members of
the Hohenzollern family whoso remains are de
posited in the vaults of the Berlin Dome, for
the purpose of discovering certain characteristic
traits, such as are known to exist in the Haps
burg and Bourbon families. The result of these
studies is, of course, not to to made public.
Certv.hi connoisseurs declare that such a family
trait is not disceruable in the Hohenzollems, al
though certain physiognomies repeat them
selves frequently, some represent lug the late
King Frederick William IV.. the others ttie
present Emperor William. There is, for in

William IV. and the Elector Johann Cicero, as
