A lawyer interested iu the Ives case ex

The Republican journals continue to print

It is by no means certain that Napoleon
11., lately deposed emperor of Wall street,
may not join Napoleon I. in the St. Helena

Sir John McDonald, the political boas of
Canada, is angry because the British gov
ernment appointed a commission to settle
the fisheries dispute without consulting
him. HeHias probably found the quarrel a
valuable one to his party', as it engaged the
attention‘©f the people and kept them front
turningtheir attention to the extravagant
internal expenditures of his government.
He is the .Canadian Blaine, “spirited foreign
policy’ I 'and all.
If the statements of the San Francisco
Examiner are to be believed, the Federal
courts of that State need overhauling. It
says the anti-Chinese law has been practi
cally nullified by use of the habeas corpus,
the purpose being to swell the fees of the
clerks of the courts, those officials being in
one inst&noe the brother and in another the
nephew of the presiding Judge. The fees in
each case amount to #l7 50, and sometimes
aggregate #1,200 in a single day.
The examinations for promotion in the
War Department have been completed, with
the result that about 10 per cent, of the
clerks have failed. This makes room for
about 100 nominees of the Civil Service
Commission, to the improvement, no doubt,
of the service. When a man gets a place in
Washington he should be made to know
that ho will hold it only so long as he is
competent to fill it—that the examination
before appointment is only preliminary.
It is said that General Black, Pension
Commissioner, will introduce a resolution
nt the convention of the Grand Army of
the Repnblic, at St. Louis, which will prac
tically amount to the expulsion of Fairchild
and Tuttle from the order, and if it is re
jected will himself withdraw, accompanied
by many Democrats. Of recent months
the organization hus taken on such a
strongly partisan character that a protest
by Democratic members would seem to lie
•eccssary to their self-respect.
The power of the President to appoint
commissioners to meet those sent by tlie
British government to settle the fishery
question is disputed, and the partisan
jealousy of the Senate may render inef
fectual the earnest efforts of tho adminis
tration to settle this long ]>endiiig and
irritating issue. It remains to lie seen
whether the Republican Henato will allow n
Democratic administration to obtain tho
prestige which a lavorablo settlement would
give it in a jtart of the country where its
party has always been weak. It is to be
feared that It will not.
Henry Villard lias entered upon another
phase of his extraordinary career. Thurs
day he ptireliuHed $<1,000,000 of Northern
Pacific securities, carrying with them a
right to a seat in the directory nt the next
election and possibly the presidency. Three
years ago be was forced to resign that
office; his magnificent residence went into
the hands of his emitters, nnd he returned
to his native Germany a bankrupt. He
began life as a newspaper reporter in ths
West. Ho is something like cork. He bobs

The Presidency Doesn't Tempt Him
There is one man in the country who
doesn’t want to lie President. That man is
Mr. Robert T. Lincoln, ex Secretary of
War. His name is frequently mentioned in
connection with the Presidency, and if tho
colored Republicans could have their way
it is probable that he would bo the next
Presidential nominee by tho Republican
There is no doubt that Mr. Lincoln is
sincere in saying that 110 doesn’t want- to
be President. IV hen ho was Secretary of
War he never appeared to lie contented.
He took very little interest in the affairs of
the department, and the honor attached to
the office appeared to have no charm for
him. In an interview, a day or two ago,
he said that when he was a member of
President Arthur’s Cabinet he made
up his mind that when his term
expired he would bid good-bye
to official life forever. He has
an excellent law practice and good health
and is happy. No office he says is a
sufficient inducement to give up these
and become a public servant whose cares
and annoyances make life a burden. Speak
ing of the Presidential office, in the inter
view'abovc alluded to, he said; “It is but a
gilded prison. The cares and worry con
nected with it outweigh the honor which
surrounds it. All official life is infinitely
Official life does not appear to be weari
some to the average citizen. Tho rush for
offices indicates that there is a widespread
willingness to participate in it, however
wearisome it may be. If Mr. Lincoln’s idea
of official life could be impressed upon the
people, more* of them would be content to
seek advancement in the private walks of life
and there would be less trouble about pub
lic patronage. There would be no need of
a civjl service law because the office would
have to seek the man, instead of the man the
office. There is not much probability, how
ever, that Mr. Lincoln’s views of office and
official lifo will, in this generation, obtain a
very strong hold on the public mind.
Mission of the Labor Party.
One of the men who has been most prom
inent in the various labor movements in
New York of late has been John McMackin,
who has generally been looked upon, to
judge frAiin his treatment by the press, as an
honest, narrow-minded man. During
Henry George’s campaign for the Mayor
alty of New York he was generally
cl/urman at public meetings, and a fre
quent and effective speaker in the cause of
that candidate. He may fairly be con
sidered to rank next after George and Mc-
Glynn in the councils of the United Labor
party,'and as chairman of its State Com
mittee is entitled to speak for it. For this
reason great interest attaches to the follow
ing extract from a letter alleged to have
been written by him to a gentleman at
Would say confidentially to you that our
main object is to defeat Grover Cleveland
and the Democratic party in 1888. We
know that you are an enemy of his. We
think he is placing too many foreigners in
office, nnd, consequently, if we can draw
enough votes from the Democratic party in
New York State we can defeat Cleveland
The editor of the Courier states that the
letter has every appearance of being genu
ine, and was written for the purpose of ob
taining the aid of the gentleman to whom
it was addressed in organizing the United
Labor party in Onondaga county.
Mr. George, when questioned in regard to
the letter, denied its authenticity, saying
McMackin could not have written it. It is
harder probable that the letter would have
been written without Mr. George’s knowl
edge; but under the circumstances a bare
denidl is not enough. To acknowledge its
genuineness would have been political sui
cide, and a man capable of entering a con
spiracy of the kind disclosed by the letter
would not hesitate to lie in the hope of
breaking the force of its discovery.
If the letter should prove to be genuine,
it will be another proof of the desperate
means to which tho party ousted from office
by Mr. Cleveland’s election will resort, to
regain power. Backed by the great money
power of the classes who have grown rich
by the results of the war, and whose ad
vantages over the re6t of the community
in the accumulation of wealth are de
pendent upon tho maintenance of its
policy, that party is willing t® lend its aid
in the propagation of any political heresy
which promises present success to itself, no
matter if hereafter it may threaten the
prosperity and safety of the Republic.
The present attempt to seduce working
men from their allegiance to the Democratic
party looks like a repetition of the Butler
campaign of 1884. Then, without any good
reason, a formidable and almost successful
revolt was led by a great but unscrupulous
politician, supported by a powerful news
paper, which had for years before made
him the butt of the most savage abuse.
Such miracles can the money power work!
Democrats in general did not then, and do
now believe that revolt was actuated by a
sense of duty, or was made with tho hope
of direct success.
Democratic newspapers in New York
have recently spoken of the movement led
by Mr. George as a diversion intended to
insure Republican success. Most, people
have not taken this charge iu the sense that
corrupt motives in the grossest sense ac
tuated its leaders, nor does tho McMackin
letter do more than give ground for infer
ence that such is the fact, but should it be
established as authentic it will show that
they are carrying on their campaign under
false pretenses, pretending to high and
pure purposes when their real ends were low
and mean. It should be another warning
to workingmen that when they set them
selves as a class apart from the rest of their
countrymen, becoming a balance-weight
between two great parties, they are liable
to be 1 (ought as were slaves in former days,
and their services delivered without their
A Wrecked Life.
Stories of wrecked lives are frequently
published in the newspapers. The one pub
lished a day or two ago of the career of
Andrew Bowne, son of ex-Congressman
Rowne, of Staten Island, is both remarka
ble and sad. Andrew Bowne is now at a
hotel in Newark, N. J., with a broken leg
und not, :i cent of money. He is an educated
man, about 4,‘i years of age,and would make
a good impression in almost any society.
Ten years ago lie had a fortune of #7OO,(XX).
It was left him by his grandfather who had
accumulated It in a lifetime of hard work
and great economy. When Andrew
Browne came into possession of the
pro|ierty he acted as though he owned
the world. He spent his money at the
rate of uhout. #IOO,OOO a year, lie didn't
waste it in Wall street. He threw it away

brought to his hotel some time in the early
hours of the next morning without a cent.
Of course, fortune and health both went.
Two or three years ago he was little better
than a tramp. Kind friends helped him
time and again. He would reform for a few
weeks and then fall hack into the gutter.
He is about at the end of his career. He
will probably not recover from his present
illness, and he ought not to want to. What
has he to live for? His wife deserted him
long ago, and no one cares whether he lives
or not. Doubtless a good many people
whom he is accustomed to annoy secretly
wish that death would remove him. To
think what he might have been, and
to know what he is ought to be sufficient
to crush out, what little life there is in him.
Can such a man he sane? When a man
wastes his fortune as this wretched wreck
wasted his, ought, not the iaw to provide for
appointing a guardian for him on the
ground that he is likely to liecome a public
charge? Andrew Bowne’s career ought to
be a warning to young men with fortunes,
but it isn’t. A great many of them appar
ently would rather follow Bowne’s example
than to be warned by it.
The Shakespeare Plays.
The New York World a few days ago con
tained the previously announced article by
Prof. Thomas Freeman ou Ignatius Don
nelly’s alleged discoveries fis to the real au
thorship of the plays .ascribed to William
Shakespeare, written after a visit to Mr.
Donnelly and an examination of the manu
script of his forthcoming book. He was not
taken entirely into the author’s confidence,
however, as the famous key, which is to
settle this momentous question, was only
“partially explained.’’ It is possible Mr.
Donnelly told all he knew.
Mr. Freeman’s article is taken up mostly
by a summary of the arguments used by
Mr. Donnelly, to prove that the plays could
not have been written by Shakespeare, and
must have been written by Bacon—reasons
in many cases plausible, but by no means
conclusive. As far as his book goes, he
seems to have added little to the strength of
the case made by former writers. The au
thor endeavors to show that Shakespeare
was almost, if not entirely illiterate, while
the author of the plays was deeply learned;
that no record shows that Shakespeare ever
possessed a book, while the plays draw
upon the literature of all na
tions; that Shakespeare was a man
steeped in almost every kind
of vice, an oppressor of the poor, a drunk
ard, a systematic liar—in short, of such a
character that it is impossible to conceive
of his having written these plays, “distilled
from the wisdom and learning of the world. ”
Mr. Donnelly next attempts to prove that
the real author was Bacon by showing that
in the plays are twenty-three references to
his home, St. Albans, and none to Shakes
peare’s; that the religion and politics of the
plays are the same as were Bacon’s; that
what Bacon declared his life-purpose is ex
emplified in the plays, and finally many
parallel passages, covering ns many as
seventy pages, taken from Bacon’s pub
lished works and the plays, are given.
As has already been stated, these argu
ments are not new, having been advanced
by different authors with more or less full
ness for the last thirty years, and having
very little effect on the public mind. Proof
to overthrow belief in the greatness of the
“Sweet bard of Avon” must be of the most
absolute and conclusive kind. It must
overthrow not only an ascription not suc
cessfully disputed for 260 years, but a pride
and affection that during that time have
steadily grown among those who admire all
that is beautiful and sublime in poetic
literature. Shakespeare is identified with
the work with which his name has been
associated so thoroughly that no slight
wrench will separate them, and Mr. Donnel
ly's book will hardly prove a great one.
The point upon which he claimed to have
made an advance upon the investigations of
other men who used the same theory-—that
he had discovered a secret cipher running
through the works which made [ilain the
secret of their authorship—was that in
which general interest was felt, and this he
failed to make plain to the man, who, pre
sumably at his invitation, traveled half
across the continent to examine his work.
The frequent and generally humorous
references to Mr. Donnelly’s theories in the
press for several years past have very thor
oughly advertised a man who may be an
honest though mistaken enthusiast, or it
may be he is taking advantage of a noto
riety thus thrust upon him to line his purse
beforo the public discovers the shallowness
of his pretensions. If the latter supposition
should prove to be true, as is most likely, it
is not probable that his victims will jutlge
him harshly—they will be relieved to find
him, rather than Shakespeare, a fraud.
National Banks at the South.
The Philadelphia Timex calls attention to
the fact that of'the 450 new national 1 tanks
organized between March 4, 1885, and Aug.
1, 1887, the very great majority are in the
South and Southwest. There is some reason
for calling attention to this fact, because
national banks wero not popular in the
South until within the last few years. There
were national hanks, of course, in the chief
cities and towns, but somehow or other
there was a strong leaning towards State
banks. Indeed, within the last year or
two a great deal has been published in this
State in favor of State banks, with the
view of securing the establishment of a
State banking system. The Times is of the
opinion that the securing of the
control of the government by the
Democratic party has hud much to do with
popularizing the national banking system
in the South. This opinion may be correct.
It is certain that the system has gradually
grown in favor, and the great increase in
tho number of national banks in the South
ern States within the last few years has had
a very beneficial effect. Money is easier to
obtain, and tho rate of interest in comtner
cial centres is lower. Those who
are acquainted with the national
banking system can hav.e no doubts
of its superiority to a State bank
ing system. The South is much better sup
plied with currency now than ever before,
but there is still room for more national

Mme. Klluini, who was recently robbed of a
valise while traveling by stage coach from Nice
to Leptosque, has been fortunate enough to re
cover most of her property. On Friday, a
shepherd, while attending his flock at Fourettes,
not far from the where the highway rob
bery was committed, picked up a valuable
brooch, and on searching further, came upon
other pieces of jewelry. Two laborers working
in a field near by, also found some jewelry anil
a mass of U>m papers, which turned out to be
bonds to the value of 60,W0f. Apprised of the
circumstance, the Mayor of Fourettes took
charge of the property, and instituted a system
atic search in the fir’d around. Tne result was
that nearly all the L welry and bonds were re
covered. Mme. Efluini was overjoyed at her
good fortune. She states that she has recov
ered all her property except 120,000f. worth of
jewelry and 2,000f. in gold.
Why Women Don't Snore.
From the Minneapolis Journal.
“Fergy, dear," said Mrs. Montgomery the
other morning as Mr. Montgomery came down
to breakfast looking as cross as two roads, “whv
do men snore?"
“Give it up," he replied shortly, with a suspi
“You snore, dear,” she continued. “What do
you do tt for?"
“I don't snore at all," replied Mr, Montgom
ery, emphatically. ‘lt's that dodgasted fool in
the next house.’
“Women nevr snore," remarked Mrs. Mont
gomery reflectively, as she dropped a pinch of
salt in her husband's coffee, “I wonder why!"
“Can’t," replied Mr. Montgomery,
‘ Well, you can’t snore unless your mouth is
open. A woman works her jaw so confounded
ly hard during the day that when night conies
it is so tired that she l ! has to close it up and give
it a chance to recuperate.”
A Husband's Prerogatives.
From the Willows (Cal.) Journal.
Mary I.a nr was married a year ago in Jacksor.
county, Oregon. The newly married couple
started for California. In Shasta valley they
made a stop and the husband secured a job
chopping wood. After working a short time he
proposed that his wife should assist in the work.
To enforce acquiescence he took her clothes and
burned thenj. He then furnished her with over
alls, jumper and heavy boots, and threatened
her with death if she did not obey. According
ly she commenced chopping wood. Then she
went into the hay-field as a regular hand. At
one place her sea was discovered and she was
diischargsd. They next came to Tehama
county and worked on Gallagher's machine.
Whatever money was earned the husband ap
propriated and spent in gambling and drinking.
Last Saturday they came to Germantown where
the husband secured work for both carrying
sacks. The work was tpo heavy and the wife
determined to flee from her bondage. Once be
fore, in Tehatna county, she had tried to escape
but was caught by her husband and beaten.
This time she waited till her husband wus en
gag'*! at labor, when she started out on foot for
Willows. At Hegel’s she stopped and told her
story. Joe Hegel gave her a letter to Col.
Crawford, to whom she came Through the
kindness of several ladies she was given proper
clothing and assured of protection. Monday
she started to Oregon’where her brother re
sides. The citizens purchased a ticket and sup
.plied her with necessary money and clothing
for the trip.
The Tribulations of a Clerk in the
Money Order Department.
From the JVeto York Sun.
The other day an old woman, bent with age
and the weight of a big basket, presented an
order for payment at the post office money
order department. She had shored it into every
window on the row before she came to the right
“You must sign your name to this first,” said
the clerk, sliding back tbe sheet of blue paper.
“Oi can’t write, sor.” replied the old woman.
“Well, then, what's your name?”
“T mein your full name.”
due clerk began to get vexed. “My good
woman,” spid he, “can’t you tell me both your
Christian name and your surname?”
“To be shore oi can.”
“Why don’t you tell it. then?”
“Why didn't ye ax me that at first? Me name
is Bridget O’Brien.”
“That isn’t the name in my letter of advice,”
continued the clerk, looking rather puzzled
“Who sent you this money?”
“Me husband, sor.”
“And what’s your husband's name?”
“Then your name is Bridget Muldoon?”
‘”Tis, sor: it be that be marriage."
“Where do you Jive, Mrs. Muldoon?”
“On the slcond flure, soil'.’’
A long line of people hod now formed at the
window, and the clerk gave up the old woman
as a bad case. He signed her name to the order
and then poked the handle of the pen through
the little brass bars. “Touch the peu, ma’am,”
Mrs. Muldoon had been very patient hereto
fore, but when the clerk shoved the pen at her
she thought he was trying to have a little fun at
her expense. She was vexed, especially when
she noticed the harassed young man smile pain
fully at two pretty girls hard by. “Oitaway
wid yer tricks.” she exclaimed, angrily, "an’
don't try enn.v uf yer tomfoolery wid a woman
ould enuf to be yer granny.”
How a Woman Acts Before and After
Her First Sea Bath.
This is a truthful and most accurate descrip
of how a woman acts when she first puts
on a bathing suit. At first sight of it she gig
gles cqpruliuvely and titters out:
"Oh. I never, never can let anybody see me
with that on!"
"Ob, yea, you can. l’ut ife on," cries some
hardened companion who has been in before.
"Everybody wears them."
"But I'll look so awful!"
“Who cares? JfobodyTl know you."
Then she get* into It' giggling turioiislv. "Oh,
1 just can’t go put In it."
"Yes, yon must."
"But how cnn I?"
"Boji! Nobody’ll notice you in the least."
“But 1 know I look perf<y tiy dreadful."
"Well, everybody else looks so too."
"I know, but 1 (giggle) I shall die if I see any
body I know.".
“Yes. I—l--guess so: Ob, I just don’t believe
I eati go, after till. Don't l look awful?”
“Pooh! no! dome on!”
"1 can’t bnpr to. T'‘t\ hep, bee. hee!"
But she does, all the same, giggling frantic
ally until she reaches the water, when she
"Oh, it's cold? Ugh' Hne, bee! I’ll look so
awful when I’m wet' O-o-o-o-h, .it'a dreadfully
And when she comes out and is dressed again
she bores everybody she knows by saying over
and over again:
“Oh, I think it's Just lovely to bathe: T'm
in every day. Isn't it fun? I just love to
r down and let the waves ran over me' I
ain’t, one bit afraid now! I was awfully fright
ened at first! I don't mind my looks'one hit

Many people have heard of the singing beach
at Manchester, Mass., where the sand, when
driven over or stirred, gives out a peculiar and
not unmusical sound, but few, very few, people
know that near Pescadero, (’a)., a beach exists
much larger, giving out sounds in no uncertain
manner. The beach near Manchester is said to
be one fifth of a mile ill extent, but at Pescadero
an investigating parly found the sounds very
clear, though varying in loudness, for a distance
of one and a half miles along the coast line. The
sound is loudest and most distinct where the
sand is dry on top and damp beneath A light,
vehicle driven over it gives a clear, musical
sound, a footstep not quite so loud, and even the
hands or a stick stirring or lifting the sand
causes it to "sing" quite plainly.
That prolific producer of diluted sensational

achieved the summit of literary distinction. An
enterprising Chicago publisher has fathered (or
should it be mothered:) on hera novel of whose
perpetration she is innocent, and the work is
having a great sale in consequence. It is called
"Valerie, or Half a Truth." and narrates, in a
round half hundred chapters, the sighing* and
spooning* of a dreamy creature with a pure
creamy skin ami wondrous eye-, and masses of
rich brown hair. A year ago "Valerie" sighed
and spooned to an enchanted public in the
Young Ladies Journal, of London, as the child
of “anew author:’’ and the editor of the journal
now denies that under this half fledged t itle was

The chair of ecclesiastical law in the Univer

so far found conai derable difficulty in finding
any on?, regardless of religion, competent to
fill the position, owing to the incumbents being
obliged to lecture, not only on Roman and Pro
testant ecclesiastical law. Imt also on commer

to the chair of Protestant Ecclesiastical Law
and Commercial Law and a Catholic to that of
Catholic Ecclesiastical Law. Dr. Karl Mayer,
who had just received a call to Strasbourg,'lias
been ap|>oiiited to the former position.
