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 sans. 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. Another "Issue.” 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 there f’ 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 of them. 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 places.” 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 boat excursion down the Coosa river was given. Tho two Sams intimated that tho excursionists “soaked ” something stronger than water, and that they continued the process after returning to Rome. Somo of tho business men thus outraged are known all over the South. A Georgian is worrying over this problem: “If the war Generals who are fighting each other in the newspapers and inagnzinescotild lie shut up together in a room, what would bo tho result?" Likely as not the Generals would tear the room to pieces trying to os capo from each other. Tho Knights of Labor in the Pennsylva nia coke region don’t seem to have much re spect for General Master Workman Pow derly. He declared their strike to bo illegal and ordered them hack to work, hut they refused to oliey him. The revolt against the General Master Workman is becoming serious. THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, MAY 23, 1887. 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 forming. 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. Speculation’s Victim. The Chattanooga papers announce the death of Allen Warden Hatch at the age of 84 years. 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 don dispatch to tho New York Star says that he has Bright's disease, and that his chances of reeovory are doubtful. A dis jiateh from tho same quarter to the New 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 about him. Bt. Louis seems to own a telegraph lino direct to the City of Mexico, for the Mexi can news tlu:t reaches this country gen erally comes by way of the fornior city. Ht liouis would confer a favor upon both the Unites States and Mexico if she should make her line a little more reliable. Exposing the falsity of Mexican news has grown monoto nous. General Master Workman Powderly says that the “land-holding aristocracy” of this •■ountry is trying to “down” the Knights of Labor. Dr. McGlynn and Henry George have causoil many to think that tho shoo is on the other loot CURRENT COMMENT. Questions Hard to Answer. From the Richmond Dispatch i/v-m.i Wliv do the negroes remain in the South if the Northern people would treat them different ly from the Southern? Why do negro cooks, carriage drivers, etc., remain in Virginia and w ork for lower wages than are offered them in New York? WouM Consent to a Division. Pro'll the Cleveland Pta.n Dealer (Dem.) The Republican leaders are so extremely anxious to get back into power that they would no doubt consent to a division of the country if by so doing the Southern vote could be got rid of. The South is extremely troublesome to the Republicans. An Extra Session Not Needed. From the Galveston _Vetr* (Dem .) The average judgment of the press of the country is that the Pre.-i lent would make a mistake to call an extra s- -ion of Congress. The President also knows a tiling or two himself, and unless an emergence ari os the chances are that the next meeting c-f < . 'Cs.s will be on the first Monday in December. BRIGHT BITS.

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 labor. THE “SOCIAL EDITOR.” A Specimen of the Trials Which He Has to Undergo. 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 keeper. 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 ever witnessed. 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. Points WheretrY He Excels. From the NV> York Tribune. “Is that savage-looking man a real Indian?” asked Proudman, Jr., of Mr. Proudtnan, as they were sauntering up Broadway together. “That man with the big sombrero and long curls driving the car? No, my son, that’s Jack Kellehah. the dead-shot mule-whacker of the Black Hills stage." cWell, I shouldn’t hire him for a driver in town -would jam, pop?" "Mr. Sharp is going to have them on all his cars You see once iu a great while the present ear-drivers remember their maimers, and Jake can never forgive a man who re mem tiers any thing. Then this Western style of man, my sun, is better aide to rush his car through dur ing the hours when travel is heaviest. Beat a Fourth warder? I should say he would. ” “Asa fighter, pop?” “Asa swearer.” 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 dries to kick Just ketch him by de hint legs fen (ley ere in tlc> air. 1 know a man vot dried it unJ Le has uefer seen a mule kick aiaco." ITEMS OF INTEREST.

A correspondent says that in Mexico milk is milked directly from the cow at the big dairies into the cook's pitcher, thus insuring its pure ness. But the Mexican milkmen are not so gulls less as the correspondent thinks they are. Many of them have a bottle filled with water concealed under their cloaks, and while milking, they manage by means of a rubbe r tube to transfer a goodly portion of the water into the milk pitcher.

When Burke was tired ex ercising on the burglar Carroll put in a few hard knocks, and then they permitted the negro to go. He was a very badly whipped man. Referring to the offers made to college students to become professional base ball play ers, the New Haven News says: "Messrs.

Mrs. Edminson kneeled by the creek and bent down to drink from the running water, when a large water moccasin bit her in the left side of the neck, sinking its fangs deep and fast in her flesh, so she had to pull it loose. Her daughter helped her up the bank of the creek, and upon her mother saying that she was very sick, 1--ft her and ran for help. When the cbUd got back with her father they found the mother about 200 yards from where she was, dead. She had tried to go to the house, but died on the way. 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.

A correspondent of the Chicago Inter-Ocean , in a description of the Garfield home at Mentor, 0., writes of bound copies of the principal dailies throughout the United States for the year of the Garfield campaign, ftnd finely bound scrap books containing extracts from papers, great and small, of which he counted sixty-four; scores and scores of substantially bound books labeled "Letters received.” and scores more labeled “Letters sent, files of campaign car toons, immense collections of photographs illustrating every event in the career of Garfield, and a collection of thirty or more canes with heavy gold heads and elaborate carving. One cane, too big to tie useful, is a mass of inscrip tions on the subject of temperance. Another is a withered sugar cane, bound together at the joints witli massive bands of gold, and supplied with a handsome gold tassel at the head. 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 stance, a great resemblance between Frederick William IV. and the Elector Johann Cicero, as may be seen by the bronze statue of the latter ip the Dome, the work of the famous Peter Viseher. “Queen Natalie of Servia,” says the Vienna correspondent of the London Times , “is going to spend n few weeks at an Austrian watering place with the Crown IViuee and the latter's staff. Including tutors and aides-de-camp. This sufficiently proves the baselessness of the stories recently circulated about, the relations between the King and Queen. It is much to to regretted that these stories, collected from the gossip of hall porters and footmen, should ever lmvo found their way into English newspapers. Qtieen Natalie, as a Russian, has naturally an affection for her people; but tosupoosc that she should ever have carried this affection to the point of damaging the interests of her husband and her son is absurd. The policy systematically fol lowed by King Milan has been that of making bis country independent, and the Qtieen lias loy ally used her influence in support of it. Her dealings with tiie Russian party have never gone beyood attempts to win adherents for the na tional policy: and even in this direction she has done no more than any lovely and thoroughly attractive lady could Hafely do to ingratiate ner -Clf with Atom "he i I." ■ ii ■ ■ ■ire • ■ i base 'otiiwh ctoJfl ■ ■ c. i misu ASriSOgmifif t low yn UtMu: CUTICURA REMEDIES BABY'S SCULP.
