Mr. Carlisle’s Views.
Mr. Carlisle, who has been tw ice S]ieaker
I of tho House, and who will be elected to
I tliat position again when Congress assent
hies, has furnished the Herald a very inter
esting talk on political matters. He is one
of tho ablest of the Democratic leaders, and
what he su\> about public matters is worth
careful attention. He tielieves, of course,
1 that Mr. Cleveland will be renominated
and elected, and he think.- that the Demo
cratic party would make a grave mistake if
it si. slid nominate any other candidate.
The success of Mr. Cleveland’s administra
tion is conceded even by his political ene
mies. and nothing proves more conclusively
that the Republicans realize their inability
to prevent his re-election than tho weak
way in which their newspapers criticise
Mr. Carlisle does not feel sure that Sir.
Blaine will be the Republican candidate.
He is satisfied that Mr. Blaine can have the
nomination if lie wants it, hut i- inclin-xl to
think that he sees only defeat for the Re
publican candidate, and is not, therefore,
anxious to have another contest with Mr.
Mr. Carlisle says that tho issues of the
next national contest will depend to some
extent upon the candidates. The Republi
cans now seem disposed to push sectional
questions to the front, but in view of the
growing disposition at tho North to cease
waving the “bloody shirt” and the indiffer
ence of the .South to such questions, they
may conclude not to give them a great deal
It is certain that the tariff will be a great
issue unless the present Congress reduces the
revenues to the extent of stopping the accu
mulation of a surplus in the treasury. Mr.
Carlisle recognizes the responsibility which
rests upon the Democratic party in this
matter, and is extremely anxious that the
party shall net harmoniously with regard to
it. He is willing that concessions shall be
made, but is not willing that the party shall
sacrifice its principles in order to satisfy a
small but, so far as the as the tnriff question
is concerned, a very influential faction. He
is in favor of a caucus of the
Democratic members as soon as Congress
meets, which shall agree upon a measure for
reducing the revenues. Unless the minori
ty submits to the will of the majority of the
caucus it is probable there will bo no tax
reducing legislation next winter Mr. Car
lisle admits that lie has notieed some things
in the public prints lately which make him
doubtful of un agreement lieing reached by
the Democrats on revenue questions.
Mr. Carlisle does not think the Labor
party will amount to much. It can hurt
the Democratic party nowhere except in
New York city, and even there the chances
arc that it will draw proportionately as
much from the Republican as the Dem
ocratic party. The Labor party has
nothing to build on, and, hence, it is not
probable that it will reach such proportions
as to make it formidable to the Democratic,
or even the Republican, party.
The Volunteer and Thi3tle.
Interest in the international contest for
the America’s cup will continue to grow
until the contest is ended. The Thistle,
which will represent the English yachtsmen
is probably on her way to this country. She
is a splendid yacht, and in the recent races
in England easily proved herself superior to
any of the other English yachts. She was
especially designed and built to capture the
America's cup, and her owners feel confi
dent of victory.
It is not certain which of the American
yachts will defend the cup. That will have
to bo determined by trial contests, which,
doubtless, will take place some time next
month. The new yacht Volunteer is the
favorite at present. She was built bv Gen.
Paine forthc purpose of meeting the Thistle,
and the little sailing she has dona has given
satisfaction. She will, however, he tested
in trial races with the Mayflower, Atlantic,
Puritan and Priscilla, and while it is not
probable it is possible that one of them may
prove to be superior to hor. Her designer,
Mr. Burgess, thinks that she can heat the
Mayflower in a race of fifty miles fully
twelve minutes. There is naturally a very
general desire for an early race between her
and the Mayflower.
Vessels like the Volunteer nnd Thistle
are not likely' to become popular for pleas
ure yachts. They are mere racing machines
The cost of handling them is very groat on
account of the amount of canvass which
they carry. The Priscilla is of the same
class of yachts ns the Volunteer and Thistle;
and it is said that it requires thirty-five
men to haul in her main sheet when a stiff
breeze is blowing. The Thistle has a crow
of forty, and this number is not too great.
When accommodations are provided for so
large h crew it is evident that not much
room is left for th owner and his guests.
The Thistle and the Volunteer, however
are not built for pleasure boats but to grat
ify national pride. The pride of either this
country or England, however, must suffer
quite a severe blow in September, and t here
is a very hopeful feeling on this side of the
water that it will not be the pride of this
Just before Mr. Blaine departed for Eu
rope he said to a friend: “I doubt if I shall

visiting the old houses anti country seats.
We got to se> them all iu the most thorough
maimer by simply ‘tipping’ the servants and
walking in at the back door.” It is gener
ally understood that Mr. Blaine hopes to re
turn to this country by the back door—Nan
Francisco—and that lie expects to be met
with the Republican nomination for the
Presidency. A back door candidate will be
cosily defeated by the Democrats,

THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY, JULY 26, 1887.
An Untruthful Witness.
Cnpt. A. S. Carpenter, of Illinois, has been
visiting the South. What Cnpt. Carpenter's
claim to 'listinction is based upon is not
known, but the New York Tribune opens
its columns to him and ponnits him to dis
play his hatred of the Southern people.
Capt. Carpenter declares that he has been
‘‘tender-mouthed” al out the South for four
or five years. He thought it av.rs time to
stop the bloody-shirt cry. While in Texn-,
however, he claims to have heard enough
talk among Southern p.-opie to convince
him that the old spirit of the Confederacy
is us much alive to-day as when Fort Sumter
was fired on. Tho Southern people are not
asserting thnt they will fight, lmt they in
tend to accomplish Their aims, nevertheless.
Warming to the subject, Capt. Carpenter
“One fellow said to me at the hotel where
I was stopping in Galveston that if Presi
dent Cleveland would stand by his order the
people of the South would go up to Wash
ington and take the flags whether or not
there was opposition from the North. You
scratch a genuine Southern man on the
Kick on the subject of secession and he is as
much of a secessionist to-day as he ever
was. I have come home from there thor
oughly determined to wave the bloody shirt
and denounce Southern methods and views
until all the secession is trounced out of these
fellows in one way or another. It is they
who flaunt the bloody shirt, and not the
people of the North.”
It is fortunate that in almost every part
of the South there are Northern men who
have for a considerable period of time been
living side by side with the people out of
whom Capt. Carpenter has undertaken to
trounce secession views. These men are
credible witnesses, and many of them have
repeatedly borne testimony to the faet that
the Southern people are as anxious to re
main in the Union as the Northern people
are, and are as loyal to the government.
Cnpt. Carpenter has manufactured his state
ment out of the whole cloth or has 1 icon
dreadfully guyed. The Southern people
do not desire to accomplish what the Con
federacy undertook, but they do desire
peace, and also desire honest government,
like that which the present administration
is giving the country. This man Cnpt. Car
penter claims to have met in a Galveston
hotel, doubtless saw that the Captain was
hunting for bloody shirt material and con
cluded to furnish him some.
In this connection it is well to say that it
is strange Capt. Carpenter did not mention
that man's name. As far as the captured
flags are concerned it is know'n to the coun
try that the Southern people did not ask
their return, and it is also known that the
only feeling excited among the Southern
people by the insane talk of Gen. Fairchild
and his companions was one of amusement,
tinged, perhaps, with contempt. To say
that the Southern people flaunt the bloody
shirt is the veriest nonsense. Senator Sher
man and a few others of his party are en
gaged in that foolish business, and they are
actuated by just the feeling that animates
Capt. Carpenter will not injure the South.
During the last few years the people of the
South and those of the North have been
drawn close together by business interests.
In this way they have become known to
each other, nnd whatever the differences
that may have been lietween them in the
past, they now know that none exist except
in the imaginations of such fellows as Capt.
The members continue to introduce hills
into the Legislature. Do they expect to
have them acted upon f There are at pres
ent enough bills pending to keep the legis
lature busy until Christmas. Of course,
every member must introduce all the hills
his constituents sent! to him, and he must do
all he can to hove them passed. Indeed,
these little local hills occupy more time than
the general ones which affect the interest of
the whole State. If the local bills are not
attended to the members are certain to be
pretty harshly criticised by their constitu
ents, anil to have their chances of a re-elec
tion damaged, if not destroyed. The Morn
ing News has urged, time and again, the
necessity for passing some general laws au
thorizing City Councils and County Com
missioners to do a great many of the things
which the Legislature is now required to do.
Is there not some member of the Legisla
ture able enough, and who has time enough,
to frame a few such laws? If there is and
he will undertake the work ho will make
himself a name that will have a place in the
history of the State.
In a recent interview Gen. Ben F. Butler
spoke freely and in complimentary terms of
Mr. Blaine. He even went so far as to say:
‘‘l have no hesitancy in saying that the
newspapers seem to presage his nomination
in 1 HK.H,” When asked, “What do you think
of Mr. Cleveland?” Gen. Butler replied: “I
would prefer to talk about this house and
the delights of summering in Maine and on
the coast.’’ Considering how thoroughly
Gen. Butler was defeated by President
Cleveland in !884 the former’s silence about
the latter is not strange. Feeling—especially
the feeling of disappointment—is frequently
too deep for words. Doubtless, if Gen. But
ler had been pressed for his opinion of Presi
dent Cleveland he would have wept.
A soldier named Kellett was found on his
knees upon the front portico of the White
House the other day and was arrested and
lodged in the police barracks. It was at
first thought that he had designs upon the
life of the President, but it soon developed
that ho had been thrown by John Barley
corn. A drunken soldier is a sorry sight,
especially when he parades his disgrace at
such a place as the official residence of the
President, The army officers in Washing

of men they are required to command.

for which the country will be extremely

The Baltimore American sometimes ex
presses itself in a way that cannot be misun

Nothing produces a dry sjmall so quickly as

CHILDREN REARED BY WOLVES.
A Olance at Some ot che Remarkable
Stories of This Sort.
One of the most remarkable of wolf children,
says a writer in Chambers' Journal, is a boy
who in his 3d year was carried off by a wolf
while his parents were at work in the fields, and
who was recovered six years afterward as he
was going down to the river to drink with the
old wolf and her young ones. A mole and a
soar on his left arm led to his identification. He
became in some degree tamed, but he never
learned to speak. He refused to wear clothes.
He walked on all fours and preferred raw m> ;t
and carrion to any other kind of food. Frogs
w hich the village* children caught and threw to
him he devoured with great avidity. At night
he would often run off into the woods, and on
such occasions his parents had great difficulty
in recovering him.
It is curious how closely some Indian stories
of “wolf children'” agree in their general
features, and even in some of their details. The
manner in which the capture of these children
is effected is, to say the least, suspicious: the
constant recurrence of the wolf going to the
river to drink gives that part of the story a
somewhat mythical tinge.
A glance at the kindred cases recorded by
European writers reveals a striking resemblance
to these Indian stories. In Wilhelm Dilieh’s
Hessian Chronicle, purporting to be a truthful
narrative of the events which happened during
the author's life-time, we are told that in the
year 1341 some hunters found a boy among a
pack of wolves. Diltch does not say whether he
saw the child with his own eyes, but he de
scribes him as walking on all fours, shrinking
at the approach of strangers, and crouching
under tables and benches and refusing all cooked
fi h id
A Hanoverian writer of the so vent A* nth cen
tury relates that in 1(561 two children were dis
covered in the company of bears in the forest
near the Polish town of Grodno. One of them
escaped, together with the bears, but the other,
who was a boy of about S or 0 years of age, was
taken to Warsaw, and there presented to the
King, John Oasimir, The King for some time
kept him about his court, had him christened,
and then turned him over to Peter Opalinski.
one of his chamberlains, who attempted to
utilize him as a scullion in the royal kitchen. In
a long Latin poem, written by some scholar at
tached to the Polish court, a complete history
of the wretched lad is given from his first arri
val at Warsaw till his final escape into the
woods. Like all his companions in mis
fortune he is represented as moving
nl>out on all fours in a heavy lumbering way.
He would eat anything, but was particularly
partial to raw meat, ripe fruit,honey and sugar.
It was also remarked that when lie walked
erect, as he sometimes would do, his general
resemblance to a bear became more striking
Among other more or less genuine cases of

Place Your Hand in Mine, Wife.
'Tis five-and-twenty years to-day
Since we were man and wife—
And that's a tidy slice, I say,
From anybody's life.
And if we want, m looking hack.
To feel liow time has flown.
There's Jock, you see, our baby Jack,
With whiskers of his own.
Place your hand in mine, wife—
We've loved each other true:
And still, in shade or shine, wife.
There's love to help us through.
It s not been all smooth sailing, wife—
Not always laughing May.
Sometimes its been a weary strife
To keep the wolf away.
We've had our little tiffs, my dear;
We've often grieved and sighed!
One lad has cost us many a tear,
Our little baby died.
Place your hand in mine, wife—
We've loved each other true;
A # nd still in shade or shine, wife.
There's love to help us through.
But, wife, your love along the road
Has cheered the roughest spell
You've borue your half of every load*
And often mine as well.
I've rued full many a foolish thing
Ere well the step was ta'en;
But. oh! I’d baste to buy the ring
And H you o'er again.
Place your hand in mine, wife,—
We've loved each other true;
And still, in shade or shine, wife.
There’s love to help Mi through.
'Twas you who made me nwn the hand
That’s working all along.
In ways we cannot understand.
Still bringing right from wrong.
You've kept me brave and kept me true
You've made me trust and pray;
My gentle evening star were you,
That blessed the close of day.
Place your hand in mine, wife—
We’ve loved each other true;
And still, in shade or shine, wife,
There's love to help us through.
Married the Other Girl.
A dispatch from Louisville, Ky., to the New
York Herald says: William Brown and Mary
Sanders, a rustic couple from Nelson county,
were married in Jeffersonville this morning.
The groom was about thirty and the bride six
teen. Thev had never been so far from home,
before, ami their marriage hamiened in a curious
manner. Each had intended to e!■:'• with an
other person, and it was an accident that caused
their wedding. The groom's brother Sam was
the sweetheart of .Mary Sunders, and her sister
Sailie was engaged to William. The parents of
the girls objected to the young men and the
quartette prepared to elope. Last Wednesday
evening Mary and Sailie went over to a neigh
bor's and a little while later the
young men called for them in bug
gies. To avoid suspicion the girls
were exchanged. Mary going with William and
her sister with Sam, and in this fashion they
started for the nearest railroad station, which
was twelve miles distant. Mr. Sanders was told
of their departure bv the neighbors, and, mount
ing a horse, started in pursuit. About two miles
from the station he overhauled them, and as
ihey refused to stop seized the horse of the rear
buggy, which contained Sailie and Sam Brown.
The others put the whip to their horse and
reached the station just as the M ain pulled in.
They then thought it not worth while to turn
back, and decided to go ahead and get married
themselves. They arrived in Louisville last
night, and this morning went to Jeffersonville
and were limb'd. They told their story very
frankly, and when Brown was asked if there
would not be trouble he remarked: “No, 1
guess not. Both girls are nearly alike, though
I never went to see this one. I'll make it all
right with Sam when I get home."
An Empress’ Bonnets.
FVom the Lady's World.
The Empress Josephine once bought thirty
eight bonnets in one month. We do not know
at what number her mighty husband drew the
line, but it is a fact that, having learned that
she bad indulged herself with the acquisition
of t his large number, he—when he one day went
into the salon leading to her apartments and
found in it Mile. Despaux, the milliner
with a large pile of suspicious looking band
boxes—was so indignant at the idea of his
wife making fresti purchases that he flew
into such a passion that everyone ran away,
leaving him to decide whetlmr be would
vent his rage on poor Josephine, who v. as a
prisoner with her feet in a foot bath, or on the
milliner herself. He did a little of both. He
was so angry with Josephine that she was
speechless with terror, and lie sent for Savory,
Ins minister of police, and ordered him to am t
Mile. Despaux. She was sent to La Force im
mediate!, and, though her fear of Napoleon and
horror of a night in prison made her ill. her
fortune was probably made by this startling
outbreak of imperial t-'inper. Next day nearly
every one iu I’nris flocked to see her, hear her
story and condole with her. She never coulJ
have lucked custom after this.

One of the strangest steamboat aggregations
that ever plied the tipper Mississippi, passed
up by LaCrosse at 10 o'clock Thursday forenoon.
It was a combination of three government
steamboats—the Gen. Barnard, Louise, and
Stella—eighteen barges heavily loaded, and a
dwelling house with all the modern appoiut
ments except the front yard. The question is,
among rivet-men, how they can get the thing
through the narrow places where it requires
good work to pass a single steamer. When
asked whose house he hatl ('apt. Durham re
plied that it was "President Cleveland’s country
residence.” The curiosity attracted a large
number of people to the levee.
A pretty Nebraska widow, who had ensnared

near Wyman, was recently ordered to leave the
country by a band of “regulators," under the
penalty of a coat of tar and feathers. Nothing
daunted by the threat, the widow bought a
double-barrel shotgun and awaited develop
ments. When the regulators approached the
house to carry out the threat, the sight of a
loaded gun pointed from one of the windows
deterred them, and one of the number, in ad
miration of the woman's pluck, advanced under
a flag of truce, proposed marriage, and was ac
cepted oil the spiot. Then a parson was called
in, the marriage was celebrated, and the night
wound up with a round of festivities.
The sisters of the conveut at Sinsinanea
Mound, Wis.. have determined to sink an arte
sian well. The mound is about 550 feet above
the level of the Mississippi river, and it will
probably be necessary to bore down to tho depth
of 2,000 feet before a flow of water is reached.
A little southwest of the mound there is an old
diggings that was operated by a company from
New York many years ago, and while the mine
was lieing worked a body of water was discov
ered through an opening. A boat was let down
and men paddled around in all directions, and in
the direction of the mound the water became
deeper. The progress of the boat under the
mound was stopped by a large shelving rock
running down into tile water. Tilts lake is about
100 feet from the surface. The company suc
ceeded in raising a good deal of mineral before
operations were stopped by the water.
With reference to the conviction and sen
tence to death of the Pans murderer, Pranzini,
a curious question has arisen concerning the
disposal of the fortune of his principal victim.
Mine. Kegnault, who possesses property to the
amount of $150,000. had signed a will bequeath
ing the w hole of it to Marie Gremeret, the little
girl of her maid and lier own goddaughter.
Now, if the murder of the child preceded that
of Mine, llegnault, the will is thereby rendered
null and void, and the property goes to the rela
tives of the dead deini-mondaine. If. on the
other hand, the latter was killed before the little
girl, the newest relatives of the child inherit
the whole of the estate. The only jierson who
could have thrown any light on the subject is
the murderer Pranzini. who, however, ahso
lately denies any knowledge of the crime, and
who, moreover, since his conviction and sen
tence has lest all his civil rights and is incapaci
tated froih tendering any legal evidence.
The mechanical department of the East Ten
nessee, Virginia and Georgia are experimenting
w ith anew smoke-preventing device for locomo
tives. They use table grates w ith diagonal slots
or openings oue-haif by three inches, and thirty
four such openings In each grate. The grate
next to the fire-box door is made stationary, and
a hack is cast upon it, which is slotted. The
hack rtntnp-'r is kept shut and the front one
open wlii'ii running. The air passes in over the
back dead grate and gets partly heated before
tvacliiug the tire, the supply by that opening
being provided to make up for tho restricted
supply that passes through the contracted grate
openings. Tile arrangement works well as a
smoke preventer and saves fuel, the narrow
openings in the grates preventing the waste of
roal that is usually caused by the tine coal fall
ing into the ash-pan. When the grates are
shaken, says the Courier-Journal, the drum
ming sound that follows the shaking of grates
with wide openings is not heard.
