The refusal of the jury at Edgefield, S. C.,
the other day, to find a verdict of guilty

murder in South Carolina.

slightest doubt that Mr. Cleveland is the

There are about 100 the depart

to their duty in the government’s service.
The New York Tribune is "always pre
dicting scandals in someone of the depart

the Treasury Department, and says that a
scandal may be looked for soon. The
Tribune's scandal flag is not quite as relia

A New Evangelist Needed.
A noted public man who died the other
day left ir w riting a confession of his faith,
which concluded with the expression: “God
bless all mankind." His raligion was of the
catholic kind tliat caused him to feel kin
ship with all his fellows. It was noticeable
because it was uncommon; for, however,
men may protest to the contrary, it is un
fortunately a fact that the multiplicity of
religious sects prevents catholicity and
makes Christianity a thing not as lovely as
it should be.
A few days ago the Now York Trilmnc
told a story that suggests quite as valuable
a lesson to humanity as that contained in
the words; "God bless all mankind." It
seems that a rugged, but expensive, monu
ment in a New York cemetery has aroused
tho curiosity of thousands of visitors
during tho last few years. The well
trimmed green turf of the lot in which the
monument stands is unbroken except by a
grave mound, which is low-roundtd and has
no headstone or footstone. At the back of
the lot rises a huge block of gray granite',
roughly hewn. Only an the front is there
the murk of a chisel. There a panel about
a foot in length has been cut, and it Is filled
with the large, polished letters of a single
word; ‘‘Forgive.’’ There is no name on the
monument to tell whose memory it is meant
to perpetuate. When questioned the sexton
tells this story: "They say it was a man
what is buried hen 1 , and a woman in black
conies now and then to look at the stone.
She goes away again without saying any
thing to nobody, and why she put ‘forgive'
on the stone nobody can tell."
A reporter, whose cariosity lod him to
consult another authority, found tliat the ,
body of a gentleman named William H.
Core was buried in the lot in October, 18*1,
and that soon afterward the monument war;
erected by his widow, Hannah Core. Fur
ther inquiry showed that the inscription on
the granite block had a simple explanation.
Mr. Core, who was a devout cbureli mem
ber, died h lingering death from paralysis.
In his Inst conscious moments he expressed
a desire to forgive everybody who hail
wronged him iu any manner, and he died
with the word "forgive" on his lips.
It may not be tho business of a secular
newspnjier to meddle in church affairs, but
it cannot lie amiss for it to manifest interest
in a question which concerns all mankind.
The Christian religion would be a much
greater power if its adherents followed more
closely the command of its founder, to live
at peace with each other and with the rest
i>f mankind borides. Some of tho so-called
Evangelists who roam about tho country
taking up collections and abusing all who
differ with them ought to learn this lesson,
that "God bless all mankind,” and“ Forgive,”
are much more effective sermons than all
the denunciation that ever fell from lips
claiming to be preaching the gospel.
A Romance With a Moral.
At one of the summer resorts wlflch
nlound in North Georgia a father and
mother and their daughter, a handsome
young lady not quite 20 years of age, spent
two months a few years ago. They boarded
with a private family. Among other visi
tors at the resort was a young man who was
quite promiuont upon all social occasions.
He was not a native of Georgia, he said, but
was from a Western State. Ho seemed to
have plenty of money, he was not ill-look
ing, he had plausible manners and he
made himself agreeable. Ho was in
troduced to the young lady at a
picuic. Their acquaintanceship almost
immediately became friendship, and
the latter, upon the part of the young ludy,
at least, soon ripened into love. They be
came engaged. Tho young man explained
to the father and mother that his family
was good; that he had ample means, and
that his presenco in Georgia wus due to tho
fact that he had been nearly every where
and wanted to enjoy whatever pleasure he
could find In now fields. Neither father nor
mother made any inquiries übout him, hut,
ns many other parents have done in similar
cases, accepted his statement as true.
Within a few months the young people were
There is a sequel to this little romance,
and it is one that is not uncommon. Tho
young man was an impostor. Ho was of
good family, but he had no money and his
habits were very bad. Father, mother and
wife decided to make tho test of affairs,
and, if possible, to conceal their bitter dis
appointment. Tho father bus a worthless
son-ill-law to support, tho mother grieves
over tho blasted life of her daughter, and
the unhuppy wife lives in seclusion and
nurses her woes.
Of course, this little romance has a moral.
Young ladies are frequently not careful
enough about the acquaintances they make.
They easily allow themselves to te imposed
upon by almost any good-looking young
man who seems to have money and whoso
manners are pleasant. Parents are often
not sufficiently cautious about countenanc
ing their daughters’ associates. Certainly
when marriage is in the question tho most
careful inquiries should be made ateut the
men who wish to tecomo tho husbands of
their daughters. It is always well, where
the suitors are strangers, to find out alt
there is to know about them. Advice like
this is often given. Unfortunately, it is
Tlio New York Graphic has a level head
about some things. With reference to the
Glenn bill it says: “The lower house of tho
Georgia Legislature lius passed a bill pro
hibiting the education of blacks and whites
in the same schools. Probably this bill will
be presented by llic Northern Republican
press as evidence of a revival of race trouble
in the Houtli; but wo notice no disposition or.
the part of Northern whites to mingle mis
cellanoouitly with their colored friends, and
there is no Northern office so cheap that a
Mack man is given a chance to occupy it.
The bill is proper and will undoubtedly lie
come n law.” No, the Northern people
don’t wont black men in their olHeos nor
black children in their schools, but they dis
play an amazing anxiety to get the black
man into office in tho South and to have
Southern schools mixed. Perhaps the Bos
ton Traveler and tho Philadelphia /Yes*
can explain this remarkable condition of
tho Northern mind.

THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, AUGUST 8, 1887.
Gould as an Anarchist.
Many hard tilings have been said of Jay
Gould, but perhaps the hardest wus said by
John A. Henry, a professed Anarchist, who
delivered ua address in New York the other
night at a meeting of the Socialistic Later
Its name was the biggest thing about
Henry's audience, for there were present to
hear him four women, four reporters, and
eleven other individuals supposed to te So
cialists. Henry announced that it was liis
purpose to justify Jay Gould from tho
standpoint of anarchism. Anarchism, he
held, meant individualism. Socialism meant
“all for one ami one for all.” Gould was
an Anarchist, not a Socialist, and believed
in the motto “Each for himself."
Illustrating the meaning of the motto
which he said Gould believed in, Henry de
clared that every murder was an act of
self-defense. A man who killed another
was merely seeking his own comfort. He
was what he was by force of circumstances,
not by reason of anything over which he
had any control. Each man should be a
law and a government unto himself, and he
would fulfill truth, justice and liberty when
obeying the behest of his senses and his im
pulses. In this general principle all the
dogmas of Anarchism was contained, and
Gould was its prophet.
It is quite generally agreed that Gould
is for lrinrself above all others. Outside of
the members of bis family it is doubtful if
he has any warm friends. Ho has not dis
tinguished himself by public benefactions,
and if his private charities are either largo
or numerous the public are not aware of it.
Henry, therefore, may have a little reason
for claiming him as an ally. But the shin
ing lights among the Anarchists in this
country arc several lengths ahead of the
position iu which Henry places Gould.
They aro not only "each for
himself ” as far as obeying the
behest of thfir senses and impulses is con
cerned, but they wish to nullify all laws.
It is quite safe to say that Gould entertains
no such wish. On the contrary he doubtless
wishes that the laws were stronger and more
After all, however, Henry’s statements re
garding Gould mean that the money king
occupies an unenviable position. His selfish
hunt for money causes him to seem to bo an
Anarchist to a crank.
Etiquette on Street Cars.
A writer in the New York Graphic dis
courses pleasantly but pointedly about the
growing tendency of men to refuse to give
up their seats to women when riding in
street cars. He suggests thut tho German
population of the country is mainly respon
sible, because that population is disposed to
te selfish about its comforts. This, however,
is hardly tho reason why men are rapidly
coming to treat women in public convey
ances as they treat men. It is more
likely tliat women themselves arc responsi
It is always hazardous to discuss tho faults
of women, but tho truth ought to prevail
even where they aro concerned. If tradi
tion is true there was u time when women
would acknowledge the courtesies shown
them by men in public conveyances by a
smile and a “thank you.” Now, however,
it is unfortunately the case that such an
acknowledgement is so rare that it causes
surprise when it is expressed. 'Women
exact courtesies from men as if they
were their right. This is all well
enough, but men have certain
rights also, upd one of them is that they
shall te thanked for the courtesies they
extend. When a tired man gives up his
seat in a street car to a woman and receives
in return nothing but a frowning stare,
which seems to suy, “Why are you so slow
about it?” it is natural that he should feel
vexed. It is also natural tliat he should re
solve never to show a similar courtesy to
any other woman.
If women desire to have the old-time
courteous treatment thoy received in public
conveyances from men restored, they must
exert themselves to show some appreciation
of such treatment. To say this may be un
gallaut, but then the ease is one which re
quires plain utterances, even if they are
A Short Road to tho Penitentiary.
The bill introduced into tho Legislature
by Representative McLendon, of Thomas
county, authorizing Judges of Superior
Courts to receive from felons pleas of guilty
when tlioir respective courts are not in ses
sion, and to sentence such felons, is nn im
portant one, anil is entitled to careful con
sideration. The aim of it is to lesson tho
expenses of counties in maintaining crimi
nals in their jails, anil to enable criminals,
who are desirous of admitting their guilt
to enter upon their terms of imprisonment
without waiting, in many instances, for
months for on opportunity to do so.
It sometimes happens that indictments are
found just at the close of a term of court,,
and the indicted parties are compelled to
wait in the county jail, if they cannot get
bail, for six months perhaps, for the next
regular term, before their cast* can be dis
jiosed of. If tlie accused jiurties desire to
plead guilty the counties arc burdened with
an unnecessary expense, and the criminals
are forced to remain in idleness, when they
would rather be serving out their sentences
in the penitentiary.
Care is taken, of course, to prevent an in
noeent. man from being sentenced. A per
son charged with a felony who has not been
indicted, but who wonts to plead guilty, can
do no, hut tho Solicitor General must tirst
draw up a statement of the facts in the case
and lilo the same in the records of tho Court
Tho bill nppears to be a good one, and if
pass' 1 will doubtless result in lessening tho
criminal costs of tho different counties.
Tho officers of tho last House have, it
seems, been doing a splendid piece of elec
tioneering. It was thought when the last
Congress adjourned they would all have to
go, but it is stated that they have received
assurances which encourage them to hot*'
for re-election. For Clerk. Postmaster and
Sergeant-at-Arms, Messrs. Clark, Pulton
mid Loodom, the present incumbents, re
spectively, seem still to have the field to ,
themselves. Several gentlemen have nn- j
nounced themselves as coini'ctitors of Col. j
Samuel Donolson for tho doorkcoporship, i
hut he has the decided advantage of a com- 1
pact aud determined following. Thecandi- j
dates against Col. Donolson, so far as at
present known, are Mr. Hurt, of Mississippi; 1
Mr. Barnett, of New York, and Mr. Walker, |
of Minnesota. As at present organized, '
aside from the Speaker, tho officers nr
equally divided iietwoen the North and the

advantage over the now candidates. Among j

THE SPY OF THE SHENANDOAH.
Death of the Man for Whom Mosby
Fought a Duel With Lieut. Lee.
From the yew York Sun.
Jamestown-, Aug. 5. Pardon Worsley, “the
Union Spy of the Shenandoah," died at bis
home at Fosterbrook, S, Y.. on Wednesday,
aged 67 yeaisj Beginning life as a fancy goods
merchant in Massachusetts, at the opening of
the late war he raised a company
of the Fourteenth Massachusetts Heavy Ar
tillery. He was soon afterwuid employed by
Gen B. F. butler, in the name of tne United
States, to go into the lirifisb provinces to look
into tne system of blockade running then in
vogue. He teas successful in the mission, for
Gen. C. C. Augur, in his report of Aug. 2), )SOS,
says that it was through the instrumentality
of Mr. Worsley that the extensive system of
blockade running from Baltimore and Wash
ington was broken up.
After returning from this trip Worsley went
out as a spy upon Mosby, under orders from
Gen. Augur, though not until he had returned
to Boston mid married Helen Isabel Francis,
who survives him. Accompanied by his young
wife Worsley set out, ostensibly upon a ped
dling trip through Virginia. His real object
was soon suspected by Mosby and a spy was
placed upon his track The spy was a hand
some young lady, who was to be conducted to
Washington by worsley. The Union spy was
too smart to tie caught, and instead of using his
pass through the Union linos he conducted the
lady through swamps aud byroads mi til she
became disgusted with the trip, and she re
turned to Mosby convinced of the loyalty of
Worsley. Mosby wus not, however, convinced,
and at one time placed a pistol to Worsley's
head, threatening to blow Ins brains out. The
young lady interceded and Worsley's life was
saved. Afterward Mosby was his firm friend,
lighting u duel with a nephew of Gen. Lee be
cause Lieut. Lee had set a guard upon Worsley

On two occasions Worsley furnished informa

to surround the house in which Mosby was quai'

to allow the authorities to mass their forces aud

mand of a squad of detectives, and when Booth

EVOLUTION IN GIRLS’ NAMES.
The Quaint Appellations of Our Grand-
Going Out of Fashion.
From the Portland Press.
In a recent communication to the Bangor
Historical Magazine Joseph Williamson, Esq.,
of Belfast, has given a list of marriages in Bel
fast Town from 1774 to 1614, inclusive. The
names of most of them are familiar to-day.
We find John, James, Charles, Jacob, Henry,
William, etc., occurring again and again. It is
interesting to observe the names of the women.
Among them arc Jarah, Deborah. Lois, Keziuh,
Priscilla, Barsheba, Theodate, Narassa, Grizel,
Kaehel, Phut be. Wealthy, Love, Charity, Tem
The 112 girls used but forty-five Christian
names among them. Polly, Betsy. Hally, Jane,
Susannah, Nuny, Abigail, and Mehitable, very
popular names among our grandmothers, have
been put away, like the old ball-dresses and
high-heeled slippers that figured in sobiety in
the days of Gen. Knox. To day, distinguished
by such names as Annie, Alice, Mabel, Jennie,
and Grace, the beamy transmitted from other
generations continues its perjietual sway. An
other thing noticeable is the disappearance of
such quaint names as Wealthy, Love, Charity,
and Temperance. They have gone with the
Pollies aud Sallies. Delight alone among the
names of 1867 is left to suggest that a trace of
the old Puritan sentiment yet survives. Is this
evolution of names only the result of a change
of custom y Or it is a natural dependent upon
other causes* Perhaps the names of to-day are
more refined aud dehcate sounds when spoken,
and therefore more fitting to the young ladies
of 1667, who are admitted, of course, to have
added the refinement of the present to the in
herited beauty of the past.
WHAT A MAINE DRUNK COSTS
An Appreciative Gentleman Who
Would Not Sell Out for $2.
From the Lewiston Journal.
Standing in the lobby of a hotel in Bangor,
not long ago, I got into conversation with a
gentleman who was representing a medical ap
paratus with a long Greek name. It is not my
intention to give the arrangement for vapor
baths a puff, but I do want to describe a rather
funny incident that followed our conversation.
My companion hud just been describing to me
how his process would sober off in half an hour
a man on the verge of delirium tremens, and
how many men never thought of going home to
their families without having recourse to this
While we were talking, a man evidently under
the influence of too much libatious came in, and
leaning over the counter, began a rather thick
conversation with the clerk. We sauntered over
and soon were on the best of terms wit h the dev
otee of Bacchus. After awhile the man said
he wished he could taper off and go home.
Here was an opportunity, and the machine
above referred to was explained to him. Five
minutes later he had staggered up-stairs and
stood ready to be cured. His coat was already
off when a drunken iilea seized him.
"Shay, what er th' cost of a bathy" he asked.
“Two dollars," was the reply.
“Well—hie—this drunk cost s2l, and no feller's
going to get it for $2. I'll keep it first.”
A Lover’s Letter.
Your letter came, and its wings are folded
Here on mv beating heart. Don't laugh.
That is srtictly true. In my left vest pocket
I have laid it over your photograph
And the little brown silken tress you gave mo
(I think \ our hair looks so lovely, curled) —
I carry my treasures all together!
My only wealth in the whole wide world!
Dancing, rowing, yacht sailing, riding,
Aud ail the gayety, aii the fun:
Yet you tell me still, it Is dull aud stupid,
(Good girl!) and you wish it over and done:
And you “long to feel the old pavements under
Y’our feet once more, and the dreamy charm
Of the avenue breeze through the "twilight
And * * your hand on somebody's strong,
For me. I work till the day is ended.
Then smoke and dream, while the street
And think of the time we will sit together,
Your cheek on my shoulder, your hand in
And look out over the sleeping city
With the beautiful bright dark sky above.
Too poor for Newport, oj* Narragansett,
But rich as ifttSers, in faith and love.
1 smoke and dream, while I build my castles—
Such wonderful structure*, so bright and fair;
No space for sorrow, no room for weeping—
Too had their basis should be but air.
Yet 1 dream and hope till sleep comes to claim
My castles vanish; I quench the light,
But I breathe your name In a little prayer,
While you aro dancing. Sweetheart, good
night. M. S. Bridges.

Church Song, Rev. Alex. R. Merriim ob
serves in ihe American Magazine, brings the
various religious denominations most closely
together in the ideal universal Church. The old
Roman forms have bequeathed to the various
liturgies their choicest prayers and praise--their
Glorias, Te Peums and anthems. We uncon
sciously, in our devotions, use the unsurpassed
passages of the Litany und collects and prayers
of our Episcopal brethren. We sing Wesley's
hymns in Calvanistic churches, and many a de
vout Methodist breathes out his faith in the
Evangelical hymn, “My Faith Looks Up to
Thee." We love to raise our voices to the
words of St. Bernard and Francis Zavier found
in our Presbyterian hymn liooks. "Lead,
Kindly Light," sings the Catholic Newman:
“Nearer, My God, to Thee," pleads in song the
Unitarian Miss Adams; "In the Cross of Christ I
Glory," shouts Bowring the Unitarian: “Angels
of Jesus," prays the Catholic Faber: “One
Sweetly Solemn Thought." sings the Universal
ist Phtebe Carey.
As the weather grows warmer, and there is
little prospect of auy protracted cool wave for
some time to come, the manner of dressing the
neck is somewhat changod. The linen collar
gives place to the chemisette of lawn or em
broidery and dainty ruffles of crepe lisse. A
collar that is cool-looking, at least, has above
the narrow band half-tuch wide loops of the
linen placed at equal distances apart. Through
these loops some bright-colored ribbon is passed
aud tied m a little bow in front. There are cuffs
to match with the ribbons tied at the side. The
set will cost about seventy-five cents. There
are all kinds of ruffling of plain and lace trim
med crepe lisse. Avery pretty one made of
crinkled lawn is sold at forty cents a yard This
ruffling will prove to be very cheap at the price,
os it is quite durable and can bo worn longer
than finer ones. The favorite inching at pres
ent is the fiat fold. If the material is thin there
will be several folds, one just showing above the
other. Corded satin, embroidered with pearl
and colored beads aud tinsel, is used consid
While Jacob Leasure tossed uneasily on his
couch in Bradford, Pa., one night recently, a
big black spider which had crawled down from
his fort upon the ceiling alighted on his bed.
The first thing the spider did was to bite the
sleeping man on the first finger of the left
baud. Then he crawled up a little higher aud
bit him on the arm. After that he left liis murk
on the sleeping man's forehead and oar. He
had bitten Mr. Leasure four times, but was not
satisfied. His last bite was tmder the right eye.
By this time Mr. Leasure's left arm pained him
so that he awoke. He felt something on bis
face and knew that it was stinging him. He
crushed it with his left hand and then called his
mother. By the light he saw that the thing
that had bothered him was a spider. He put on
his clothes and went out to see a physician, who
advised bint to put raw meat over the bites.
His arm then was sore and numb. No serious
results are anticipated, but Mr. Leasure will
hereafter see to it that no spiders arc harbored
in his room.
There is some excitement at Ilortonville, a
viilage twenty-five miles from Indianapolis,
over the discovery of a pot of gold which was
buried under the residence of Solomon Hiatt,
who is now dead, and who, it has always been

for the purpose of finding that very pot. lie

was told by un old Indian chief that when the
Indians were living in this part of the new pur
chase, t' onty-five miles due north from Indian
apolis, at the head of the Big Dismal, they had
left “heap big money" buried under a stone
which had a tomahawk and a turkey's foot cut
in it. Hiatt, thinking he might find it. entered
the land, lie found the stone described by the
Indian chief eight or ten years ago. aud in a few
weeks the pot was found and reburied under his
Hiatt lived to be nearly 100 years old, and a
few days before his death he told his children
that he knew of something that would make
them all rich, but that be would not tell them.
The pot of money found beneath his house is
supposed to be the thing referred to by him. It
contained several thousand dollars.
