State Fairs in the South.
Interest in Slate and county fairs is stead
ily increasing in the South. This is u sure
sign of prosperity. Tl ejteople are produc
ing something they are prnuil of. They are
anxious for the world to see what they are
i getting out. of their soil, forests and mines,
i and what their mills are doing. They
! are growing richer, and are giving more at
‘ tention to fine stock. At tlieir lairs in all
I the Southern States they can show as fine cat
i tie, hogs, sheep and poultry as can bo found
m the most favored of the Northern States.
They are just beginning to find out the pos
sibilities that are in their soil and climate
| for the production of fine fruits. Oranges
I have been grown in Florida
[ since its first settlement, but
what wonderful progress lias been
maJe in improving the ipialily and increas
ing the varieties of the fruit within the last
few years! Florida no longer boasts of her
oranges alone. She has many other kinds of
fruit which are being gradually advanced
to the highest perfection. At her Sub
tropical Fair at Jacksonville, next winter,
there will be a display of b r products that
will cause the hearts of her people to swell
One groat fair has just ended in ttiis State,
and another began on Monday. Thousands
of people from this and other States are
gathered at Macon this week, inspecting
the evidences of Georgia’s growth and pros
perity. They will see a great deal that will
convince them that new sources of wealth
are being discovered, and that the old ones
are yielding rich returns.
I,ust week the Alabama State Fair was
held at Montgomery, and it is probable that
those at the fair who were acquainted with
the productions of the State a quartor of a
century ago were amazed at the evidences
of new industries and new sources of wealth.
The portions of the State which were re
garded as almost worthless when only cot
ton was thought of are now the richest.
Iron and coal are taking a lcadi ng place
among the State’s productions, and the
probabilities are that they will become
more productive sources of wealth than
On last Thursday the State Fair of Texas
was opened at Dallas. What a marvelous
growth that State has had! There were
visitors, doubtless, at the Dallas fair who,
as they inspected the evidences of the wealth
and numerous industries of Texas, recalled
with amazement the time, not very distant,
when there was scarcely a town of impor
tance within her borders, when there were
comparatively few acres of her soil under
cultivation, and when her productions were
s<* insignificant as to attract no
attention whatever. What a change has
taken place in a few years! Texas has now
a population of over a,500,000, more than
20,000,000 acres under cultivation, and some
7,000 miles of railroad in running order.
She is already the Empire State of the
South in wealth and population, and if her
growth continues at the same rapid rate
she will be the Empire State of the Union
in another generation.
All the Southern States are growing, and
some of them at a marvelous rate. There
is no better place to see this than at their
State and county fairs. Let the fairs,
therefore, bo sustained and encouraged in
every possible way. The benefits derived
from them are worth many times their
Not a Place lor Slugging Matches.
The slugging match between Mr. J. F.
Manning, a Boston lawyer, and Mr. Mc
lennan, the chief of the Warrant Division
of the Treasury, in the ante
room of the office of the Secretary
of the Treasury, must have given
the distinguished Englishman, who was
having an interesting interview upon an
important matter with the Secretary at the
time, the idea that there is not much red
tape in settling personal difficulties at the
national capital. The affair was a disgrace
ful one, and the offenders ought to be
punished so severely that nothing of the
kind would likely occur in any of the de
According to Mr. Manning’s story he
addressed an insulting remark to Mr. Mc-
Lennan, the purport of which was that he
had accepted a bribe. Before Mr. Manning
fully realized what had occurred he had a
bruised eye and bloody nose. In this con
dition he rushed into the Secretary’s private
room, interrupted the conversation between
the Secretary and the distinguished English- •
man, and demanded protection against the
infuriated Mr. McLennan. The Secretary
could hardly have been otherwise than mor
tified at an occurrence which appeared to
reflect upon the management of the depart
ment, and which -was not easy to explain
Mr. McLennan of course, had sufficient
justification for striking Mr. Manning, but
he ought to have selected a different time
and place for that sort of work. He can
offer no satisfactory excuse for inaugurating
a fist fight not only in the Treasury building,
but on the very threshold of the private of
fice of the Secretary. The impression will
get abroad that reforms other than those
which have been begun, are needed in the
civil service if there are any more rowdy
scenes in the departments at Washington in
which government employes are involved.
“If ever a man had a good, faithful, lov
ing daughter,” says Warden Durston, of
the Auburn prison, “James D. Fish has
one. She is as constant in her visits as the
prison rules will permit.” Miss Fish, since
her father’s confinement, has made her
home at Auburn. The poor littlo waif,
whose mother, Sallie lieber, the sweet
singer, died in giving birth to at Leonia, N.
J., is being cared for by Miss Fish. The
little girl is now nearly 2 years old, and it
will be remembered that Mr. Fish claimed
after Miss Retor’s tragic death, that he had
been secretly married to her just before the
collapse of the bank.
It is now stated that the first report of the
death of Lady Brassey did not tell the
whole truth. Bhe was uot buried at sea,
but sprang overboard while delirious with
fever, and was drowned in spite of the
efforts of her husband, who promptly sprang
after her into the water. The many in this
country who have read her delightful book,
“The Voyage of the Sunbeam,” will be
shocked to know that the author met so
tragic a fate from the deck of the vessel
which figured so largely in her story.

THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1887.
Gov. Hill Slandered
There appears to he a great deal of activity
I in circulating the report that Gov. Hill, of
New York, is secretly working to defeat his
party in New York this fall in order to in
crease his chances for getting the Presiden
tial nomination next year. Those who be
lieve he is doing anything of the kind can
not have a very high regard for him. 1 here
is nothing wrong, of course, in his trying to
elevate himself to the Presidency in a fair
and honorable way, hut there is much that
is wrong in his trying to do it in the way
The defeat of the Democrats this fall in
New York would of course tend to create
the impression that Mr. Cleveland could not
carry that State. That it is necessary that
he should carry that State if ho is nomi
nated is admitted.
The aim of the Democrats will he to nomi
nate a Presidential candidate who can carry
New York, and it cannot lx; denied that a
Republican victory there next month would
give Mr. Cleveland’s political enemies a
chance to cast a doubt upon the advisability
of nominating him. They would urge Gov.
Hill’s nomination on the ground of his abil
ity to carry New York.
Gov. Hill, however, could hardly assist in
carrying out such a programme. His part
in it would become known, and his political
career would he ended. He is altogether
too wise to take such a risk even if his in
clinations were in that direction.
The probability is that the story has no
foundation whatever, and that, he is now, as
he has always appeared to be, a good friend
of the President. He knowsthat the Dem
ocratic party has about made up its mind
to renominate Mr. Cleveland, and that un
less something occurs to induce it to change
its purpose it will do so. It tnay nominate
Gov. Hill for President at some future time,
but it will be soon enough to talk about him
in connection with the Presidency sev
eral years hence.
A Revolt Against Law.
At a meeting of London sympathizers
with the Chicago Anarchists, the other day,
the proceedings of which were reported
briefly by telegraph, one of the sjieakers de
clared that if he had an opportunity he
would consider it his “proudest duty to rid
the world of such a villain” as Judge Gary.
The hate expressed by the speaker was
probably entirely impersonal. He called
Judge Gary a villain because in him the law
was impersonated. He would perhaps not
deny that every right given by the law to
the men on trial was fully accorded them.
The objection is to the existence of law itself.
This attitude of mind is what makes the
Anarchist dangerous to officers of the law,
but at the same time renders him harmless
to the country as a whole. It makes him a
mere criminal, not a revolutionist The
reason of this is that the American people
look oij the law as the expression of their
own will. They know that if a law is
oppressive or unjust the effect of its work
ing will finally cause its repeal. With this
kuowledge, they can afford to wait.
The number of people who sympathize
w’ith the aims of the Anarchists in this
country is very small —perhaps not more
than a few hundred. They are confined
almost entirely to the large citias, and are
chiefly foreigners, who have brought with
them the detestation of law learned in coun
tries where the government is not so respon
si vo to the will of the people as is ours. Among
them, however, are a few Americans, and it
would be interesting, were it possible, to
find out if each of them has not by some act
of his own put himself outside the pale of
sympathy and association of his country
men. How much did the marriage of Al
bert Parsons to a mulatto woman have to
do with his adoption of the
principles of anarchy? He was
born at the South, and no doubt enter
tained at one time tho same ideas as to
miscegenation that Southern men in general
do. When in spite of this he married the
woman, it was natural that he should re
volt against the society which had cast him
out as a moral leper, anif nttempt to break it
down. He was no longer an American, lie
cause he was no longer in touch with the
prevailing sentiment among his own people,
and naturally fell in with the morbid
minded foreigners among whom he has
gained such a had eminence. His is per
haps a typical case of the few American
Senator Don Cameron has heretofore been
known ns a rather reticent man, but he has
been talking of political matters lately with
a freedom which must worry some of his
party associates. His prophecy of Cleve
land’s re-election has already been men
tioned, and he has since been making some
remarks about Senator Edmunds, A re
porter having mentioned to him a rumor
that a movement would be instituted to re
tire the Vermont Senator from the head of
the Private Land Claims Committee, he ex
pressed himself in sympathy with the move
ment in terms so plain that they have been
“considerately withheld.” Mr. Cameron is
probably disgusted with the many blunders
of his party, and wants to take more of a
leading position in it than he has hereto
Mr. Theodore Roosevelt is perhaps the
most distinguished Now York Republican
of the younger generation. This fact adds
importance and interest to the following
sentence taken from an article written by
him and recently published: “The world
has never seen better soldiers than thoso
who followed Lee; and their leader will un
doubtedly rank as without any exception
the very greatest of all the great chieftains
that the English speaking peoples have
brought forth—and this, although the last
and chief of his antagonists may himself
claim to stand as the full equal of Marl
borough and Wellington.” The day may yet
come when Southern heroes will be national
heroes, along with those who fought on the
the other side.
A French opera manager was in despair
at the prospect of having to produce
“L’Africaine” with white negroes in the
ballet, because the dnneers refused to black
their faces for fear it would injure their
complexions. He issued an order, however,
that all the young and pretty girls must
color their faces, because it would do them
no harm, while the old and plain ones
would be allowed to appear without black
faces, because they had more need to take
care of their looks. The result was that
every blessed one of the girls tried to get on
more black than any of the others, and
when the ballet was on the stage a half
dozen extra calciums had to be used to keep
the audience from thinking the lights had
all gone out.
J udge Gary, who presided at the trial of
the Anarchists, has been nominated by the
United Labor party for re-election. This
action goes far toward showing where the
sympathy of Chicago workingmen rests.

ERASTUS WIMAN AND MRS. GOULD
How the Canadian Balked Mrs. Gar
rett’s Slight on Edith Kingd^n.
From the \ew York Hun.
It is pretty generally understood that Mr.
Robert Garrett has never liked Mr. Jay Gould,
and the statement that he was not particularly
partial to Mr. George Gould would stand of its
cwn weight. It is not generally known, how
ever, that Robert Garrett's dislike for Gould
ryerr and Gould fits has I teen transmitted to
Mrs. Robert Garrett, who, with a woman's fine
and deadly instiuct, selected the most vulner
able spot in the enemy's armor, and mode a
stab at lather anti sou through the latter's
young and lovely wife. The incident occurred
at the Montreal carnival last winter. The Mar
quis of Lansdowne, Governor Genera! of Cana
da. and Lady Lansdowne were present, and
they naturally attracted an attendance that was
not only unusually large, but was in great part
composed of people who moved in the best so
cial circles of Canada.
Among the Americans who were present were
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Garrett and Mr. and Mrs.
George Gould. They were members of the
same carnival party, and had traveled together
from New York. Mrs. Garrett had been pre
sented to Lady Lansdowne, and casually men
tioned the fact two or three times. Mrs. George
Gould, who had not been presented to Lady
Lansdowne, was. naturally enough, desirous to
meet the lirst lady of Canada, and candidly
There is a rule, generally rigidly enforced,
that such public affaire as a carnival, for in
stance, no stranger shall he presented to Lady
Lansdowne. This rule, however, is occasionally
broken, but on rare occasions, and only when
the consent of Lady latnsdowne to its infraction
has been obtained.
Knowing hisjwife’s desire in the matter,
George Gould asked Robert Garrett if Mrs. Gur
rest would act as a medium. Mrs. Garrett
coldly refused. She did not think that Lady
1-ansdowne would care to meet a young woman
who had lieeu an actress. This refusal came to
the ears of a New Yorker who was on the most
friendly terms with Lord Lansdowne, and who
was, besides, on intimate terms with Robert,
Garrett and George Gould. The matter was put
in his hands, or. rather, he took jiossessiuu of it.
He told laird Lansdowne that the wife of a
New Yorker was anxious to be presented to the
Marchioness. The lady had been an actress,

From Harper's Razor.
The pumpkin pie is yellow,
The buckw heat cake is brown,
Tiie farmer's gray neck whiskers
Are full of thistle down.
The leaves are crisp and russet,
The sumac s blazing red,
The butternut descending
Is cracked upon your head.
The rabbit is cavorting
Along the gloomy slope,
The shotgun of the sportsman
Eliminates his lope.
The butterfly’s departed,
Likewise the belted bee,
The small boy in the orchard
Is up the apple tree.
The county fair is booming,
The circus is no more.
And on the polished brass dogs
We make the hickory roar.
The trees wear lovely colors
In beautiful excess;
All nature seems to rustle
Just like anew silk dress.
The sausage soon will ripen,
The popcorn soon will pop.
And Christmas things enliven
The window of the shop.
Sing hi! for merry autumn,
Sing ho! for autumn gay.
Whose pretty potpie squirrels
Among the branches play.
For now no merry bluebird
Upon the rose tree toots,
And autumn, golden autumn,
Serenely ups and scoots.
Shut In the Cemetery.
From the New York Stur—
Washington, Oct. 22.—The gates of Arling
ton snap shut at sundown. This has been their
custom since Secretary Stanton bought the
place and converted it luto a national cemetery
in 1864. For twenty-three years visitors who
make Arlington the object of an evening drive,
have listened nervously for the dreadful boom
of the sunset gun at Fort Myer, near by. On
Wednesday night a v oung navy officer, who is
very proud of his fine nlooded mare, took a
young lady out for a ride. After making a
call on the family of one offthe officers at Fort
Myer, they thought they would go down
through Arlington to the long bridge. As the
tine blooded mare was walking leisurely down
the hill in front of Arlington House, the sunset
gun boomed. The young officer turned white
and lashed his mare, only to find the central
gate shut when he reached it a moment later.
Whipping across the grass he made for the
nortn gate. That, too, was shut. Then he
dashed off to the south gate. That, too, was
closed, and no one was iu sight. In despair the
prisoners went up the hill to the mansion, where
they were told that the superintendent had all
the'koys, and hod gone over to Georgetown to
spend the evening. The keys are never kept
inside the cemetery. There was nothing to do
but to bat ter down the gates with a sledge ham
mer. This the stalwart young Lieutenant tried
to do, bnt that also failed. As the fading light
reminded him that something must be done, he
concluded to leave his horse aud go honm afoot.
The mare was unhitched and turned loose to
graze among the graves, and the navy man
boosted his companion over the high wall that
surrounds Arlington, himself leaped over, and
they trudged off on the long walk homeward.
The next morning the Lieutenant took another
walk, caught his mare and drove home, resolv
ing never to visit Arlington again as long as the
The Hair and Beard Growing: After
From the Omaha Herald.
Sitting in the office of the Comptroller of the
Treasury the other day were two gentlemen
w aiting for the preparation of some document
which the bureau was just about oomph ting.
On the wall opposite hung a fine oil portrait of
Salmon P. Chase, the first Comptroller, show -
ing him as a handsome, florid-faced man, with
out beard and with heal partially bald.
“That doesn't look much as he did a year
ago,” said one of them, noting the handsome
“A year ago; why, he has been dead these ten
years or more, hasn't he?’’
“Yes, eighteen of them. Yet I saw him only
a year ago with full beard and a full head of
hair, very different from the picture you see
“What do you mean?"
“Simply this. 1 was present when his re
mains were taken from Oak View cemetery for
transmission to Cincinnati a year ago. Al
though seventeen years had elapsed the remains
were, still in an almost perfect slate. The fea
tures w'ere entirely distinguishable to those who
knew him in life. The clothing was in a per
fect state of preservation. The principal
changes were that the face was dark, and in
stead of being smooth, as was his custom in life,
it was covered with a full grow th of beard, two
inches or so in length, and mixed with gray.
The head, which you see was bald in life, was
covered with a full suit of hair, partly gray."
Long Distance Rides Make Men Fatter.
From the Court Journal.
A curious fact is brought to light by Capt.
Doan-Pitt's valuable record of “Long Distance
Rides." It is that the men who were engaged
in this severe work seem to gain weight instead
of losing it. This is especially noticeable in the
case of Lieut. Broadw<xxi's ride from Bangalore
to Mysore, and the care and thoroughness with
which that officer's report has been drawn up
guarantee the figures to be perfectly reliable.
Out of the twelve men who made the march
only two lost weight by it: two weighed in at
the same weight as when they started, and the
remaining eight had all gained. Now, it is well
known that men iu hard'training often go up in
weight, but this is popularly accounted for on
the ground that the superfluous tissue they get
rid of is replaced by heavier muscle.
The Mysore march, however, lasted only two
days, in which time no physiological change of
the kind could have been set up: and, moreover,
the weather dt was the 18th and 14th of March
is said to have been very hot. It must be a
despairing revelation to any man who is think
ing of “Bunting" to find that he may ride 180
miles in two days under an Indian sun and a
camp diet aud yet become heavier. The same,
however, is the case with the men of the Royal
Artillery detachment, which made the march
from hmuptec to Jubbulpore, whose weights
w’ere also taken. One or two men lost a pouud
or two. but the great majority gained, while oue
man actually increas'd by a stone and another j
by 714 pound*. I
