It seems that tbe Japanese mean to fol low the example set by the Chinese in the matter of taking American wives. In New Orleans, a few days ago, JokichiTakainine, an educated Japanese, married Mir* Carrie Hitch, a sweet-faced and blue-eyed belle. The marriage took place at the residence of the bride's parents. Mrs. Ann Eliza Young, the nineteenth wife of the late Brigham Young, the head of the Mormon church, is very sick with dyspepsia at Manistee, Mich. By the adviue of a physician she has entered uj>on a pro longed fast, which has continued so far nineteen days. The health of Young's other eighteen widows is said to be good. Grape culture pays in California. A San Diego citizen, said to be "above suspicion." ha* a grape vine of which he says: "I.ast year I helped pick and weigh 1,143 pounds of fruit from that vine.

He proposes to attach a typical American bar to his Wild Wert show, and has sent to Omaha for a noted bar keeper to take charge of it. It is likely that Buffalo Bill's high and mighty acquaint anecs wi<] uow thtuk turn more of a "brick” than ever. The Demands of the Magistrates. The bill now pending in the Legislature for the benefit of the Justices of the Peace for this county is a very objectionable one. If the tax-pavers of the county don't want to have their already heavy tax bunion very considerably increased they will send such a protest to their Representatives in the Leg islature against it that it will never be lieard of outside of the room of the com mittee whieh has eharge of it. The bill repeals the law governing the fees of Justices of the Peace in this county, and provides that they shall receive $7 in all felony cases and #4 in all misdemeanor cases sent by them to the Superior or City Court. Besides these fees the bill provides for a fee of 53 for writing, or witnessing and approving, a bond when an accused party is required to appear for a prelimi nary examination, or is bound over to au swpr the demands of a higher court. If this bill should liecome a law the chances are that the Justices of the Peace would do a rushing business, and the county would have its treasury relieved of cash at an alarming rate. It is doubtful if the new jail would be big enough to hold all those who would be sent to it unless the magis trates should accept “straw” bonds, which they would hardly do, in view of the fact that the payment of their fees would de;**nd upon the appearance of the accused parties at the higher courts to await the action of the grand jury in their cases. It is not stated whether or not the county is to pay the $3 bond fee, but the presump tion is that such is the intention of the bill. About every arrest would eost the county either #7 or 510, to sav nothing of the expense of supporting in jail the prisoners unable to furnish hail. Indeed the amount of the magistrate’s fees in some eases would, in all probability, lie greater than the sums stated, because the chances are that then* would he fees for two bonds instead of one —a bond for appearance liefom the magis trate, ami another for appearance before the higher court. The bill has splendid possibilities for the magistrate. If they failed to make hand some incomes out of the c* unity it would be because they did not know how to make the rmwt of their opportunities. It is not pmha ble, however, that thy would tniss a chance to make a fee. But besides the burden which the bill would impose upon the county there are other objections to it. If it were to beeome a law the magistrates, anxious to make as much as possible, would Lake notion of every little offense that could in any way be mag nified into a misdemeanor. They might even search out offenses that would not otherwise claim their attention, an*l, as they would not get any fees if they discharged the accused parties, they would be strongly influenced to hold th *in for trial in the higher courts even when the evidence did not justify them in doing so. This may seem to be an unfair reflection upon the Justices of the Peace, but it must bo re membered that changes are all the time being made in the otflies of the magistrates, and that th** men who sometimes succeed in getting into them are not entirely conscientious in the discharge of their duties. Some years ago there was a law whose pro visions were similar to those of the pending bill. The very evils which are apprehended from this bill existed tinder that law. They became so great that the law, in response to a strong popular demand, was repealed. Will the Representatives from this county, with the remerabran**** of the trouble which that law caused, and of the burdens which it implied up in the taxpayers fresh in their minds, permit a similar law to be enacted? If they do, they will not prove themselves worthy of the trust reposed in them by their constituents. The State should pay Justices of the Peace a reasonable compensation for their services in criminal cases, ami this compen sation should be promptly paid. If, how ever, it becomes necessary, for the proper administration of juati**e, that the <*ounty shall hear the cost of making preliminary examinations of charges of violations of the laws, it would be better to deprive Justices of the Peace of all criminal Jurisdiction, and to create a court having exclusive authority to make such examinations. The cost of maintaining a court of this character would be much lens than the amount of the fees which the Justices of the Peace are seeking. In fact, anything would be better for the county and the public than a law such as the Justices of the Peace want enacted. The Terrapin Bill. The bill for the protection of terrapins, which was introduced into the House by Representative Smith, and which passed the House with scarcely any opposition, was framed by Dr. Oemler, of. Wilmington Island. There is no reason to doubt that it will lie passed by the Senate. The bill pro vides that-terrapins shall not be caught before July 35, but Dr. Oemler thinks that tbe prohibition should be extended to Aug. 3t). In support of his position he says his attention was lately called to a statement respecting some terrapins which were picked up on St. Simon’s Island after July 35. They contained both mature and im mature eggs. But the pending bill will be a great pro tection to terrapins, and if it becomes a law and is rigidly enforced, there is every rea son to believe they will become plentiful again in the waters of this part of the State. Few realize who have not given attention to the matter how destructive to terrapins the prat-til's of catching them at all seasons is. A statement was lately made to Dr. Oem ler that as many as 1,000 eggs had been taken out of a terrapin pen in this vicinity in a single morning, and that one dealer has now in his pen 10.000 small, comparatively wm-thless female terrapins, nnd they will lie kept there until about Nov. 1. The pending hill will do a great deal of good if it becomes a Law. but Dr. Oemler expresses the opinion that it would do much more good if it prohibited the taking of ter rapins before Aug. 30. The outrageous conduct of Dukes, the ne gro editor of Montgomery, Ala., has not only made it necessary for him to iiee the wrath of the jieople of that city, but it has caused pronounced opposition to the pro posed State University for negroes. At a largely attended meeting, tbe other day, resolutions were adopted by the white citizen* of Montgqpiery protest ing against the location of the University within either tbe city or county. The Houston, Tex., Font says: “Talk like that indulged in by Mi-mr*. Felton and Simmons, in the Georgia Legislature, would call for a funeral or two in Texas.” In Georgia the talk was thought bait enough even with a )>eaceable ending. A funeral or two could uot possibly have caused the dis grace of it to be greater. THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 1887. The Fanners’ Convention. The Interstate Fanners’ Convention at Atlanta is not only well attended, but it is discussing subjects that are of very great interest to Southern fanners. It can hardly fail to be productive of beneficial results. The proceedings are quite fully rep *rted and are given wide circulation by the press. It will be strange, indeed, if some of the many valuable suggestions which crop out in the speeches and essays are not ntilize*L The agricultural interest is the great one in the South, ami yet in the last quarter of a century it has shown lees development than any other. The reason of this is. doubtless, the difficulty in breaking away from the old methods of farming, which were based upon a different kind of labor than that which exists at present. There are. however, gratifying evidences of changes, and where these changes are the most marked there the indications of prosperity are the greatest. One of the es says read before the convention dealt with diversified farming, and it is safe to say that the Southern farmers are now raising their own supplies to a greater extent than ever before. The all-cotton method, under the growing belief that de pendence upm the West for food supplies means a constant struggle with poverty, is gradually giving way to the diversified meth*i. The time may not !>* very distant when th * South will be independent of the West. Even now it is not uncommon to hear of farmers making g*xxl crops of hay in localities where a comparatively few vears ago no hav whatever was produced. Senator Colquitt, in his speech on Wednes day, sjxikea few wise words about the tariff. He made it plain that it was to the interest of the farmers that the tariff should be re duced. The government does not need all the money which the tariff produces. The present high tariff increases the cost of the necessaries 'if life, and of much of the ma chinery, ami many of the implements needed upon the farms, thus impising unnecessary burdens upon the farmers. Mr. Henderson, the Commissioner of Agriculture of this State, with whom the idea of this interstate convention ortei tinted, doubtless feds great satisfaction in trip success of the convention, and in the pros pect that much good will flow from it. The Pevce Union and the Military. The Philadelphia Pres* publishes a syn opsis of a communication from the Philadel phia Peac* Union to the Constitutional Commission, objecting to preference being given military organizations in the grand demonstration in i-onjunction with the Con stitutional Centennial celebration, in the communication, says the IVras, President Alfred 11. Love and others of the Union ask whether great injustice is not done the in dustries of the country in placing a limit to them and giving an unlimited opportunity for the exhibition of military and war like preparations They claim that “this bringing together of fighting men—warriors decked in the gaudy habiliments of their profession, with deadly weapons hung about them —is not in harmony with the spirit and purposes of the Constitution nor of the dis tinguished and beloved framers of that in strument of unity and concord.’’ It is sug gested by the Union that instead of allow ing the celebration to tie a mere display of military and other power, that it be made an occasion of some achievement of lasting benefit to the world. With the view of aiding the Commission the Union suggests a demonstration in favor of national and international arbitration, the donation of the money to be spent on the military display to a relief fund providing against calamities by fire, pestilence, famine, or any other great public calamity. President Love and his associates seem to forget that wnr was the agency by w hich indejiendenee of England was gained and the republic founded. If they remember the fact, their suggestions indicate a great lack of appreciation of military organiza tioret Arbitration as a means of settling difference between nations is to be com mended, but there are times when, to pre serve the national honor, not to mention life and property, it is necessary to fight. This being true, military organizations should be maintained. and their presence at the Constitutional celebration will be alto gether appropriate. The Washington correspondent of the New Orleans Picat/nne says that notwith standing the recent reports to the effect, that Judge Pettus, of Alabama, and not Secre tary I-amar. is to be appointed the successor to the late Justice Woods, of the Supreme Court, friends of Secretary Lamar are still confident that he will receive the appoint ment. A gentleman who is vert - close to the Secretary said recently; “There is no doubt whatever in my mind about the mat ter. Secretary launar is going to leave the Cabinet for the Supreme bench. It is tru\ perhaps, that the President has said noth ing to the Secretary on the subject, but the work has been done by the Secretary's frieiuU, and the best posted men who have tieen looking into the situation are confident that this will be the case. A few days ago the Morning News noted the fact that railroad builders in Washington Territory were about to send South for negro laborers. Commenting, the Chattanooga TTEmcs says: “Perhaps if we could manage to get rid of the whole race—Sambo, Jumbo, (Jtiitnbo, Dinah and the picaninmes, we could replace them with something a good deal more satisfactory. Whut do you say. Mornixo News, to a trial for a wholesale exodus?” The Mottx ixo News is not disposed to join in such a trial. When the negroes learn, as they are rapidly doing, that the Southern people are their best friends, it will be difficult to find a more satisfactory class of laborers than they. Mayor O'Brien, of Boston, vigorously defends his presence at a recent entertain ment given at the Boston Theatre in honor of John L. Sullivan. He says that he con sidered it his duty to see that the city ordi nanoes were not infringed upon. And then, again, he claims that a performance officially sanctioned by the Board of Aldermen is one which 0111 he properly attended by the most select citizen in Boston. Louis Boydcn, who recently died at Wor cester, Mass.. at the age of 85, had been totally blind for eighteen years, and in that time his sense of touch bail developed in a marvelous manner. He could tell the de nomination of a bill by feeling, and he planted, weeded, and cared for his large garden entirely by himself, and was never known to pull up a young plant for a weed. In filling out ndeath certificate, a Buffalo, N. Y.. physician attested that the con tributing cause of death was a croup cure, made and sold by another physician of the Mine city. Medical ethics in Buffalo have since been upside down. CURRENT COMMENT. The Taxes Must Come Down.

From the Washington X. C.) Star •' ZVm.) a Republican knave and ex-United States Senator says he favors a ‘whirlwind campaign, ana his tk*ket is Sheridan and Fair child.

A protection organ. explaining the preaf emi gration from Germany, attributes it large hr to the fas? increasing stagnation of trade ana in dustries throughout the empire." If all that the pa per claims for the tariff be true, there should, as the Chicago Times suggests, be no stagnation of trade and industries in a country that ha3 all the tariff it can possibly want. The Figure Riddleberger Has Cut. From the Boston Herald (fad.) Senator Riddleberger ha* cut so coutemptible a figure in and out of the State of Virginia that if the law can be enforced and he can be com pelled to pa** a number of days in a common jail, the public credit of the Old Dominion will bo measurably augmented, and the Senator himself may receive a lesson that will be of future service to bim. No man in this country ought to be allowed to demonstrate that he is above the law. and that he can with impunity set legal restraints at defiance.

Gov. Hill,of New York, Raise® the Cleve land Prize sls Better. From the Baltimore American. Wasbihotos, Aug. 14.—The fair, which is to be held next mouth in the little villag ? of East Aurora, N. Y.. is attracting far more attention in all sections of the country than events of this kind usually do. The season is obvious. The President of the Association knows an adver tisement when he sees it. and he makes the most of one when he gets it. The slo* gold piece which President Cleveland contributed as a prize for the best set of triplets has l**en framed and is attracting a great deal of attention in Buffalo, where it is on exhibition in one of the show windows. The fact that the prize is of fered by the President has attracted several mothers who are the happy possessors of “three of a kind," and the indications now are that the East Aurora fair of will .draw the biggest crowd of triplets ever seen in one country be fore. One of the gentlemen interested in this unique couptry fair ts in Washington this week. He says that the color line is not to be drawn, but that special inducements are to be offered to the colore*i people of Western New York to exhibit. Governor Hill has seen Cleveland's ten and goes him fifteen better The Governor has contribu ted $23, which is to he given to the be*t pair of colored twin*sent for exhibition. It is thought that this is a shrewd move on the part of the Chief Magistrate of the Empire State to head off the prestige of the appointment of Mr Trotter as recorder of deeds of the District of Columbia by the President. Governor Hill is known to be very friendly toward the colored population of New York, and it is doubtless in the hope that he can win still more supporters among the race that he offers this prize for colored twins. This gentleman says that the indications are now that the East Aurora Fair will draw an im mense crowd of visitors from c?!l over the re gion contiguous to Western New York, as there are many men who have been prominent in the affairs of the country who were educated in that little village. The couple who are to be married on the grounds will have an excellent start in life, for besides the furniture which has leen offered as an inducement, there have since promised several tons of farm produce, besides subscriptions to various newspapers, a village cart ana $6 worth of phosphate. “DARN A WASP.” Thus Concludes a Norwich Naturalist Whom the Insects Worsted. From the Xorwich Bulletin. A Norwich naturalist who was out for birds a day or two ago became imbued with the Napo leonic idea that he could route a whole colony of wasps at a blow. He was not long in finding a stone and putting it through their paper nest; and the wasps were not long in rinding him The first tickled him right over the left eye. and so absorbed his attention that he could not tell where the rest struck him. His legs and arms worked like the bars in a threshing ma chine, and he rolled on the earth like an ant eater assailed by bees. When he thought he had rolled three miles, he felt himself drop several feet, and then ho struck a stump and stopped. For a mo ment he couldn't decide what to do He couldn't tell whether it were better to lie still or get up. < hie eye was entirely out of use. but he cautiously uncovered the other eye and viewed his surroundings. He was pocketed between an offset wall and a tree, and the wasps had not been able to follow his trail. He wes not look ing for them. He felt that home would be more congenial to him, ami went at once. But he carried an eye with him that no one looked upon with envy. The inflamed eyelid protruded like a gall upon an oak leaf, and had more fire in it than a toy pistol He hasn't had time to investigate to s**e what of the wasps. He hasn't had time, yet, t*> make that eye look respectable. But he has thought a little upon the subject of wasps, and says: “Darn a wasp! See it. but never try to go it one better! For you can't He Changed His Mind. From the World's Saratoga Letter. Mr. Ben Wood fell into the mood reminiscent last night, as h* sat on the front portico of the Gran t Union slowly smoking a good night cigar. I will never forget the first time I saw my narpt* in print/" h<* said. “I was a lad of 21. and fairly popular in the where I lived in New York. A primary was about to be held for the nomination of a police justice Tae man who had held the office a long time had earned the ill-will of a friend of mine, who asked rae to help him go* enough votes to nominate another man in the placn of the offending Magistrate. I did so, and my man received the nomination. The next morning, as I left the house, I took np the New York Herald , and in the first editorial column was a reference to the nesting of the night befiw**. and a suggestion that the change of noni nees hud been brought anout by coercion, in the form of a man named Wood, who had gone to the primary leading a gang of ruffians, who forced the re sult. I grew pale with anger. Riding down town in the stage, with a mind fully made up to cowhide Bennett. I thought l was recognized by every man that looked at me as the leader of a ruffianly gang. I reached the Herrdd office, in quired for Mr. Bennett and was noon shown into the august presence. Producing the paper.

Senor Barxillo, Vice President of the Re public of Honduras, is devoting a fortnight to a study of Chicago, its railway system, water works, grain elevators, boodiers and other wonderful things. Annie C. Arnold, of Lynn. Mass.. has just been pardoned from Slier born prison in the Bay State. The woman was wrongfully ac cuse* 1 of theft last May, and she entered a plea of guilty in order to escape the notoriety of a public trial. Cape Charless City. Va., is the only city in America that is fenced in. It is said that the only public road leading to the place is the rail road. Why the citizens of that section do not build roads by which people can drive to Cape Charles is a mystery, for the town is growing rapidly. Gen. Ferron, envious of Gen. Boulanger's pictorial fame, had himself, on his white charger, photographed on the review ground, with his staff beoind him. He and they took up the relative positions of Napoleon I. and his Generals watching an Austrian battle in a paint ing by Meissonier. A pectliarly sad case of sunstroke recently occurred in Buffalo. The victim was a Prus sian, who had left his family and came to America to make a fortune. He had saved money enough in a year to bring them over her--*, and they were expected in Buffalo last Saturday morning. On Friday afternoon he died of sunstroke, and his wife and five children arrived to find him dead, leaving them homeless and penniless in a strange land. Forty years ago there died in Padua the physician and chemist, G. B. Massedaglia, who had succeeded in petrifying several animal bodies, which he bequeathed to the University Museum. To his will he had attached a seaied letter containing the secret of his method of netnfaction. which was onlv tg> be dividend to his legal heirs. Until recently all search for the heirs of l>r. Massedaglia remained fruitless, but they have at last been discovered, and are offered very large sums f°r the secret, which, however, they refuse to disclose for the present. Mr. Labo re here’s hints to travelers on the continent in the matter of tips are briefly ex pressed. as follows: Frenchmen generally act on the estimate that a waiter in a Parisian restaur ant ought not to have more than a sou on each franc of a bill. At hotels the chambermaids ex pect about a franc and the waiter ditto when the visitor stays one night: if longer, porter and boots expect something A fair estimate is about two francs a day divided among all the bloodsuckers. Members of the Stock Exchange generally give triple this, members of the aris tocracy half. A water bicycle was propelled across the Niagara river, below the Falls, on Sunday, with reported success by its owner. The machine is of* the catamaran order and consists of two zinc floats ten feet long, supporting a bicycle wheel, on the rim of which are a number or six by three inch paddles. A small rudder takes the place of the second wheel on the ordinary bicycle and is operated from in front of the rider, who uses a small horizontal steering wheel instead of a bar. The time was four and a half minutes and the distance about I,“*X) feet. The swift current and the chop waves did not seem to bother him. The Saratogian tells that the other evening ex-Mayor Ely. of New York, was chatting with his friends. "General and Mrs. A./' on the United States Hotel piazza The conversation becoming languid, the < Jenerai suggested to the ex-Mayor that they should look into the bar room to see who was there. “Oh, Charley claimed Mrs A. to her husband, “this is the fourth time since dinner that you have gone to see who is in the barroom " “Four times!" ejaculate! the General; then turning to his friend he said: "Ely. my dear fellow, if ever you do marry, be sure to select a woman who has never studied arithmetic. *’ Bishop Heber wrote the well-known hymn ‘ From Greenland's icy mountains" at Wrex ham to be used at a service on behalf of the So ciety for the Propagation of the Gospel. A writer in last week's Christian World says that the late Dr. Raffles, of Liverpool, was on oue occasion preaching at Wrexham when he heard th“ story of Heber s hymn. It immediately oc curred to him *hat probably on the printer s file the original manuscript might be found. Though many years hod passed. and the search looked fruitless, yet it was made. On the file, covered up and long forgotten, it was at length found, and was soon secured to enrich the valu able collection of interesting relics which Dr. Raffles possessed. • Tuere is a sort of club at a place south, in the vicinity of London who have made it a practice to discharge pistols at a card marked only with the ace of any color, to keep the hand in prac tice for dispatching, one time or another, their man One day in the course* of last week one of these bloocCs. seeing one of his comrade* often fire very wide of his mark, offered to stand a shot for a wager of 10 guineas, if his friend doubled his distance, which might have been sixteen paces. The wager was closed and the iron-headed gentleman who made the Ijet took his station, while his frien^jraversed the ground and discharged his pistol. The joke was con cluded with the lodgment of a ball in the wa gerer's right thigh. The Si.(YD sword which the people of Arizona will soon present to Gen.

Alphoxso Dapdet is telling in /> Temps the story of his creation of “Numa Roumestan." It was licli-ved fora long time that the hero was in tended as a sort of caricature of Oambetta, and lt was even said that Gaml>etta resented the liberty taken by the novelist, and had with drawn his friendship from him in consequence of ft. M. Daudcf now declares that Gambetta never for a momeut imagined that “Numa Rou mestan ' wa* meant to suggest him even re motely. that he was gre?tly amuseil to think that he had been taken f-ir the original of the portrait. Thj novelist telLs that he sat next Gambetta at a dinner some little time after the book appeared, arid Gambetta aske*l him whether the saying which he puts into the month of his hero. “When I am not speaking I never think." was original or borr lived. “Purely original, my d‘ar Gambetta.” was the answer. “Well, this v**rv rn>mitig.'' reiimed flambi'tta. “at the Cos im’.l of Ministers, one of my col leagues. a southerner like ourselves, declared that he “only thought when sneaking.* Decidedly the sentinv nt is indigenous to the aoU.” And for the lait rime." ad Is M.
