The Quean’s Jubilee Celebration.
This week will be an interesting ece
throughout the British empire. The prepa
rations for the celebration of the fiftieth an
niversary- of Queen Victoria's reign are very
extensive. There will be ceremonies of an
impressive character, and parades and fire
works for the amusement of the people.
The Quom will be the toast at many a ban
quet, and her loyal subjects will vie with
each other in their eipissswes of good will
and kindly feeling toward her. The Queen
herself will come forth from her partial re
tirement and take part m the jubilee festivi
ties. Since her widowhood began she has ap
peared but little in public. She is a -trauiger
to the greater portion of her subjects even in
London. It is expected, however, that dur
ing the jubilee celebration she will be the
chief figure in the principal ceremonies and
The people of England may not be very
strongly attached to royalty, and to aristo
cratic institutions, but they have very high
regard for their Queen. She has led a pure
life, and is a model woman and mother.
She has furnished an example which Eng
lish mothers can follow with safety, and
Englishmen point to with pride.
She is not a great Queen, nor in any sense
a great woman, but she has had a remark
ably successful reign. At the close of the
fiftieth year of her rule the British Empire
is greater than it ever was. Although hav
ing strong domestic inclinations she hes
always taken a lively interest in public af
fairs. Her aim has been to promote tlm
welfare of her subjects, anil to increase IV
greatness of her Empire, but it is probable
that the chief thought that has occupied ter
mind throughout the gi-eater port of
her reign is how to strengthen the hold of
her family upon England. To insure the
throne to her descendants she became Em
press of India, consented to the marriage of
a daughter to oue of her subjects, and has
been diligent in the accumulation of wealth.
It is by no means certain, however, that
at the end of the next fifty years one of her
family will occupy the throne. Indeed,
there are reasons for doubting that there
will be a throne. England is growing more
democratic each year. The people are
gradually acquiring the power which roy
alty- and the aristocracy have enjoyed ex
clusively. The House of Lord,s, the estab
lished church and the privileges of the no
bility are losing favor, and the time that
will witness their overthrow may be near
Whatever of sincerity there will be in the
rejoicings of the present week will be due to
the admiration of the womanly qualities of
the Queeu, and not to any marked appre
ciation of royalty. It is probable that the
Queen,'to some extent, realizes this, and
beneath the smiling face that she will pre
sent during the jubilee celebration, it may
lie that she will carry an aching heart. If
she could feel that the people were loyal to
royalty and to aristocratic institutions, and
that they would stand as firmly by those
who are to succeed her on the throne as they
have stood by her, the present week, doubt
less, would be one of the happiest of her life.
The jubilee funds were not forthcoming
without much urging. The hearts of the
masses are not in the celebration. The
trouble in Ireland, and the grave questions
which are pending in Parliament, make a
deeper impression upon the people than the
celebration, and while they will join in the
rejoicings, and give expression to kindly
sentiments toward the Queen, they will do
so ivith the feeling that the throne and its
props are in a rather skaky condition.
The Course of True Love.
The course of true love is sometimes
straight and sometimes crooked. This is
not as the poet expressed it, but it is plain
prose that may be eusily understood. When
true love is straight its affairs never obtrude
themselves upon the public; but when it is
crooked the public is generally made ac
quainted with all the details. Formerly the
gossips spread the news about true love’s
tribulations, but now it is spread by the
newspapers. The Cincinnati Enquirer, for
instance, tells a tale that will provoke the
sympathy of every lad or lass that feels the
sting of one of Cupid’s darts.
For more than a year Henry French, a
well-known and popular young man of
Wilkesbarro, Pa., devoted himself, with all
the ardor of a nature said to be unusually
intense, to Miss Mary Meehan, a lovely
blondo residing in the southern portion of
the city. She reciprocated his devotion and
plighted her troth to him. Unfortunately,
Henry had auburn hair. The Enquirer
says auburn, but the painful truth is Hcury’s
hair was a fiery red. The Meehans ad
mitted Henry’s good qualities, but they
drew the line at his hair. In fact,
they despised him becauso of his hair.
Mrs. Meehan declared w-ith many on em
phatic shake of the head and gesture of the
hand that she would not allow her daughter
to wed a man whose hair made her think of a
conflagration every time she saw it. Miss
Mary, however, resented her mother’s offen
sive langauge concerning Henry’s liair, and
boldly announced that she would, marry
him or take jison and end her earthly ex
istence.' Evox-y effort was made to keep the
lovers apart, but without success. They
established a code of secret signals, and
when she would signal that the objecting
parent was out of the way, he would seize
the occasion to enjoy a short but sweet in
terview. Miss Mary’s two brothers sus
pected that the lovers were secretly meet
ing each other, and they consulted together
to devise a plan that M-ould effectually pre
vent Henry from showing his red hair on
the premises. They watched Miss Mary’s
windows several nights, and were finally re
warded by seeing Henry stealthily approach
the front gate. When lie was least expect
ing an assault, they seized him and placed
him in a rough coffin constructed
for the occasion. They then close.! die lid
and held him prisoner until he swore that
he would never seek Miss Mary again. So
far he luis kept his oath, but he has brought
suit against the two brothers to recover
damages for assault and battery, declaring
that while he was in the coffin lie was nearly

been crooked, but never before lias it been

will yet bo einbajmed in poetry by some
genius worthy of.tljo task. ■<

THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY, JUNE lit, 1887-TWELVE PAGES.
Tho Grand Army Flurry.
Tbt excitement over the battle flags inel ■
•1-r.t is quieting down, and those of the
Grand Army people who were so yiolent in
tho expression of their feelings are U’gin
nu sr to feel that they made a rather sorry
exhil- tiou tf themselves. Now that the
truth of tho whole matter has been pub
lished it has been found that no request for
any • : the banners was ever received at the
War Department from tho Soul h. The
proposition to return them to those to whom
they originally belonged was suggested to
the Adjutant General of the army by re
quests from Northern States for Union ban
ners. He thought it would be a grace
ful thing to return the Confed
emte banners to tho States from
whose troops they were originally
taken, and the Governers of these States
offered no objection. They do not appear to
have shown any great desire for the flags,
and what they have said since the flurry
over them shows that they would much
rather let them remain where they are than
that they should be made the occasion of
arousing feelings of bitterness between the
Northern and Southern people. Gov. Lee,
of Virginia, speaking aliout the matter, said
that while the Southerners would have ac
cepted the banners they were content to let
them remain where they ere. Ho also re
marked that “flags captured from Northern
troops, by Southern soldiers, have been re
turned, in some cases with ceremony. The
country should not again lie agitated by
pieces of bunting that mean nothing now.
The South is part and parcel of the Union
to-day and means to do her part toward in
creasing the prosperity and maintaining the
peace of the republic, whether the flags rot
in Washington or are restored to their for
mer custodians. ”
This kind of talk is much more sensible
than the foolish utterances of Gen. Fair
child, mid will commend itself to the masses
of the people.
The South had no part in creating this
flurry. She didn’t ask for the flags, and
didn’t get excited when the Grand Army
and the Republican organs raised a howl
over the-proposition to return them. The
whole affair is a Northern one. The excite
ment that was stirred up, over what was in
tended to lie only an evidence of returned
good feeling, was expected, no doubt, to
furnish political capital for the
Republican party. If the Southern
people had shown any feeling in the matter
the political schemers might have scored a
[Kiint, but as they remained indifferent the
affair will have no influence in politics.
The mischief-makers have accomplished
nothing beyond making themselves ridicu
lous in the estimation of the country.
King Knlakaua, of Hawaii, appears to be
having a good deal of trouble during thq
absence of Queen Kapiolani, who is in Lon
don taking part in the jubilee festivities of
Queen Victoria. He has conducted public
affairs in such a way that there is a very
fair prospect that he will have a revolution
to contend with. When the Queen returns
she may find tho kingdom turned into
a republic, and the King of no more im
portance than hundreds of other natives of
It is probable that the presence of the
Queen is necessary to keep the King in the
straight and narrow path in which he should
walk. If that is the case the Queen will act
wisely by getting back to Honolulu as
quickly as she can.
It® seems that both the Chinese and the
white population are collecting arms for the
purpose of deposing the King, and the King
has collected arms ami ammunition in his
palace with the purpose of defending him
self and maintaining his position. It is said
tliat about everybody with any influence in
Hawaii is of the opinion that there ought to
lie a change in the government because
Kalakaua is w holly unfit to rule. He lacks
both integrity and ability, and thinks
of little else than his pleasures, and
very coarse pleasures they are. He
squanders the public revenues instead of
applying them to the purposes for which
they are intended. The result is that noth-'
ing Is being done in the wav of public im
provements and the jieople are every day
becoming more dissatisfied. It used to be
said that Claus Spreckles, of San Francisco,
was tho real King of Hawaii, but he does
not exercise as much influence there as he
once did. What influence he had he proba
bly bought. The chances are that the King
wanted more money than he was willing to
furnish, and he concluded he could get
along as well without the King’s help ns
with it. It would interfere greatly with
Queen Kapiolani’s plans and pleasures if
the King should be deposed before the jubi
lee eelebration is over. Without the title
of Queen she would cut a rather sorry figure
The Boston Herald and tho New Orleans
Times Democrat differ widely as to who
will succeed Secretary Lamar in case he is
appointed Justice of the United States Su
preme Court. The Herald lias it from
Washington that Senator Ransom, of North
Carolina, has been offered the place of Sec
retary of the Interior, and that he will un -
doubtedly accept. The Times-De moc rat's
Washington correspondent telegraphs that
Senator Colquitt, of Georgia, will step into
Secretary Lamar’s shoes. The Sonator and
the President, it is said, are on intimate
terms. Tho former is reported not to bo
tired of tho Senate, but it is asserted that
he wishes to avoid “the hot fight which is
approaching in Georgia." One of the Sena
tor’s friends is quoted assaying: “Gov. Gor

down there of a sentiment which only needs

He Should Do His Own Killing.
From the Few York Evening Post i/mi.)
We suggest now that if t here has to be any
further loss of life in this quarrel. Gen. Fairchild
should do his own killing. If he or nny other
veteran thinks the President ought to die for re
storing the captured flags, he must not blasphe
mously call on God to slay him, but step up like
a man and assassinate him himself. If anything
can justify the President's course, however, it
would be talk like this. People will naturally
say that things which call forth such ravings
must be excusable, that it cannot be far wrong
to do for peace and good will what fanatics
resent in this fashion.

to carefully regard the sentiment of all sections

The Scripture Lesson for the Day.
From the New York Tribune.

But while men slept his enemy came and sowed
tares among the wneat and went his way.—

Rebuke the multitude of the bulls, with the
calves of the people.—Psa., lxviii.. 30.
And behold another beast, a second, like to a
bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it
had three ribs in the mouth of it. between the
teeth of it: and they said thus unto it: Arise,
devour much flesh.—Dan. vii., 5.
I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of
her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart.

Who Speaks First?
“O, hello! hello! hello!”
Old Lady Vie doth shout;
“Send me some other fellow—
My Laureate's got the gout.
“Long time the Mine has staggered
* And wobbled all about;
Now, grim and gray and haggard.
She gives in to the gout.
“Oh, Fate is democretic!
No man her sway may flout;
The Muse she is rheumatic,
And Alfred’s got the gout.
“The lofty pale of title
Won’t keep the beldame out;
She claims her own requital,
And gives my lord the gout.
“Poor Pegasus has flung him;
The steed's played out, no doubt,
Since cruel Fate's hamstrung him
And goaded him with gout.
“Fact is I'm getting tired!
I'd really like to knout
The puling peer I’ve hired
Who’s knuckled to the gout.
“■What! Swathe the Muse in flannels?
All swaddled in a clout,
Hirn' the Victorian annals
Let her limp on with gout.
“Just send some other poet.
Some lusty, springing sprout,
Some genius who can go if
And get the best of gout I"
M. A. B.
From the Bouton Herald.
I came upon a party of girls engaged in a
mysterious operation. One had her dress
sleeves off. aua another was applying pieces of
wet cloth to her arms.
“What's the matter with Maria? Rheuma
tism in her back?” I asked.
“Mercy, no; we are trying samples for our
suits,’’ returned one of them.
I was mystified. Girl No. 3 was slopping a
piece of white wool material up and down in a
wash bowl. She squeezed it out, and, removing
the other wet rag, spread this fresh pice over
Maria's arm. Maria shuddered. The girls all
stood around. No. 3 exclaimed: “That shows
through beautifully. You can see Maria’s pink
complexion just as plain!”
"That's the 75c. piece, ain’t it it?" asked Ma
"Yes, dear; and this is the one you can't see a
thing through—that 50c. stuff.” .
Then it came out. The sweet buds of inuo
cenee were deciding about the materials for
their bathing suits, and the one that "showed
through” was the one selected.
“Why, it's lovely," said girl No. 2; “you can
see the mole on Maria’s arm. Ma wants me to
have blue flannel—as if there was any fun in
blue flannel | You just see if the men ever pay
much attention to blue flannel. I say they
“I’ve been thinking.” mused the quiet miss,
who had not spoken before, “how pink nun's
veiling made double would look?”
“Not nice at all,” answered Maria; “cream
white is best. Then one's own pink arms show
through. I don't know what Annie will do, any
way. She’s just chocolate color under her
sleeves; she'll come out like a mulatto."
Amos Was Equal to the Occasion.
From the Providence Journal.
A few dnys ago a South Main street market
man bought a lot of live fowl and determined to
kill and dresstbem himself. Therefore he hired
to help him a certain map whose first name is
Amos. During the dressing of the fowls Ainos
picked up one and said: “Hero is a flue one that
will weigh three pounds when dressed."
The marketman thought differently, however,
and soon a bajnas made, $3 being puL tip by

the chicken there, and it just turned the scale at

four ounces of tea lead and stuffed it into the
fowl, and he then proceeded to the market and
had tlie clerk weigh it, and hen- it turned the
balances at three pounds two ounces; and the
clerk gave to Amos the certified weight. Amos
now proceeded back to the two other parties to
the bet and presented the affidavit of weight,
and took the $7 and started*off to get drunk

relatives, asking for assistance from him. This
may seem funny to most people, hut it does not

About the year 1832 Mrs. Joshua Blake, wife
of Joshua Blake, of an old mercantile house on
Central Wharf, Boston, sent her son, Joshua
Blake, Jr., then an officer in the United States
Navy, stationed at Jamaica, a box of Havana
cigars. His vessel left Jamaica before the
arrival of the package, and it was retained in
the custom house there thirty-five years. Sub

house, 'where it remained twenty more years.
It was then brought to light, ana recently came
into possession of its rightful owner, Mr. Joshua
Blake, of Boston, who has tested the quality of

The Haydn monument recently unveiled in
Vienna bears a more than life-sized statue of
