The great strike of printers in New York
is about ended, the men having failed to
carry their point. Though the strike has
not been officially declared off, many men
have gone back to work, and the offices

It now seems to be settled that the Polish
adventurer Mitkiewicz did use Mr. Vander

without authority, and resorted to other un

the result of his work will stand, in spite of
the fraud he practiced. The men for whom
Mitkiewicz acted will probably dispense
with his farther services as soon as possible.
The excitement in Chicago as the day for
the execution of the Anarchists approaches
is growing intense, and the wisdom
of granting a respite of a week, which
is said to be contemplated by Gov. Oglesby,

for the fomenting of excitement and the ex
ecution of plots. It is doubtful, too, whether
such a respite would be a real kindness to
the unhappy men.
Hardly has Boston’s slugging hero got
out of town when the newspapers of that
city print long articles with big display
heads containing the challenge of a Boston
man who wants to win fame and money by
out-eating anybody in the world. The mat

town apjiears to tie surfeited with estheti
cism and culture, and in its hours of is
not ashamed to show its real nature.
Mayor Hewitt told a city official who
wanted his salary raised because his services
were worth more to the city than bo was re

were worth about $200,000 a year, but he
was satisfied. This is apparently a high
estimate, but not too high if the public
service is not crippled by the way in which
tne Mayor is trimming down the estimates.
He has cut off many thousand dollars.
The ruling of the Bureau of Navigation,
that Capts. Boyd and Beuer must pay out
of their own pockets the pilotage fees in
curred when their vessels were carried up
the Delaware to take part in the constitu

the government will foot the bill. The
sympathizers with the officers who were
passing around a subscription paper for
their benefit in Philadelphia will, no doubt,
be glad to hear this.
Senator Stanford says most of the gradu

well of honesty in other people. Perhaps
the graduates of the great university he is
building will be good enough for conductors
on ills numerous railroads.
It is announced that Mr. H. C. Hanson,
lately business manager of the Macon Tel
egraph, has assumed editorial and business
control of the Columbus Enquirer-Sun.
This is a most fortunate thing for that pa
per. Mr. Hanson is not only one of the best
managers of a nowspajior’s business affairs
in the State, but it can safely be predicted
that he will make his journal a leading ex
ponent of tiie theories of taxation to which
the Democratic party is committed, and on
the carrying out of which the prosperity of
the country depends. The revenue reform
Brctas in him gains a most valuable recruit
Louisiana’s Faction Fight.
The Democratic parly in Louisiana is be
ing pretty thoroughly shaken up. There
are two factions in the party in that State
and they are widje apart in their policies and
purposes respecting State affairs. A con
tost for the control of the approaching State
convention has been in progress for several
weeks, attd the organs aud stump speakers
of the two factions have given the people
but little opportunity to think of anything
else than State politics. Tito faction that
has control of tho Slate government is
striving to have Gov. Sam D. McEaery re
nominated, and the other faction is urging
the nomination of ex-Gov. Nicliolls.
A Senatorship is also involved in the con
test. The term of Gen. Gibson, the
senior United States Senator, expires very
soon, and the Legislature to be elected tiiis
fail will choose his successor. Oeu. Gib
son is battling for the Nicbolls faction, and
his colleague, Senator Eustis, is in sympathy
with the McEnery faction.
The supporters of ex-Gov. Nicholls assert
that they have the better element of the
party with them, anti that if they are suc
cessful they will introduce into tho adminis
tration of State affairs purer methods, and
will put a better class of men into the minor
offices. In other words, they pledge them
selves to inaugurate some reforms of which,
it is asserted, the people stand greatly iig
Gov. McEnery has already been elected
Governor twice, and the third term cry has
beeu raised against him. He pretends that
ho has done more than any of itis predeces
sors toward improving the levee system of
the State. Ho has certainly exerted himself
in behalf of levee building, but whether he
has really accomplished much in that direc
tion is a question that is not regarded as
settled. If his performances had been equal
to his pretensions the levees would he in a
much better condition than they are. The
belief is expressed that his influence in State
afTairs is not great, and that his course
upon every important matter is dictated by
a small number of shrewd politicians who
find bitn a vory useful instrument in ad
vancing their own schemes.
The factious are separated by a feeling so
bitter that the probability of their acting
in complete harmony in tho near future is
not promising. If it were not for the fact
that the supremacy of the party is menaced
by a strong, but unorganized. Republican
patty, they would carry their warfare to
much greater extremes than they have yet
done. They are not so mad, however, as to
nominate sejiarate tickets. They know if
they did that the Republicans would get
control of the State. As much as tiiey dis
like each other, they are forced to stand
together to resist the Republicans.
The Republicans seem to think that there
is a fighting chance for them at the next
election. They hope that the defeated
Democratic faction will be so embittered
that it will r ot give the ticket of the party
a hearty support, aud that they will have a
chance, therefore, to elect their ticket.
They have called a convention and projxise
to nominate a full State ticket. They will
bo di*aji[Kiiuted, because before the State
will be jiermitted to pass under their control
again the Democrats will abandon their
faction fight for a time and give their
ticket a sufficient support to elect it. The
probability now is that Gov. McEnery will
be re-elected, an l if Gen. Gibson gets back
to the Senate it will bo by a majority so
small as to almost take his breath away.
The Reports Respecting Mr. Garrptt.
Reports continue to come from along the
route which Mr. Robert Garrett is travel
ing, that he is not suffering from any men
tal trouble, and that he is enjoying excel
lent physical health. These reports doubtless
give pleasure to his friends in Baltimore and
It is admitted by his physician, who it
traveling with him, however, that for two
years or more, he lias been under a greater
menial strain than was good for him, ami it
was thought wise to remove him from all
exe ting influences of a bus ness character.
Just before be started for Europe it was
thought that bo was in danger of an attack
of brain fever, and that danger, it seems, is
The impression prevails to some extent
that Mr. Garrett is suffering from a mental
trouble. This impression may be erroneous,
and it is to be hoped that it is. The fact
that his physician accompanied him to
Europe, was with him all the time after he
returned home until lie started on his West
ern trip and is with him now indirates that
Mr. Garrett is in a condition that needs
constant medical attention. His talk at the
depot just before he started on his present
trip to tho West aud Mexico mid the fact
that he left Baltimore at all at tiiis time,
wliou changes arc takiug place in the owner
ship aud management of the great proper
ties in which he is so deeply in
terested, are sufficient to justify a suspi
cion that there has been a want of
frankness on the part of those who,
lieing in a position to know the truth, have
furnished statements respecting his condi
tion for publication.
A good many unkind things have ap
peared in the newspapers with regard to
Mr. Garrett which wouldn’t have beeu pub
lished if it had been understood that he was
not entirely responsible for his actions. If
he is really a sick man, aud not a snobbish,
purse-proud millionaire, there will lie gen
eral regret that an unkind word has ap
peared iu print about him.
The decision of a Now York lower court
that a woman was a drunkard aud inca

proper one, but it sometimos makes it im
possible, as in this case, to restrain the
victim of a morbid app tite from acts very
damaging and disgraceful to herself.

THE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1887.
The political situation in New York city
dues not appear to lie wholly satisfactory to
tho [Kiliticiuns. There was a pretty general
desire :t few weeks ago that Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Nhull should be nominated
for District Attorney. As one of the prose
cutors of the boodle Aldermen mid of Mr.
Sharp, tho briber of the boodlers, he made
quite a reputation. He is a Democrat, and
wanted the Democratic nomination for Dis
trict Attorney. Col. Fellows, another As
sistant District Attorney, proved himself to
lie the better politician mid wire worker
and secured the prize.
The Irving Hall Democrats concluded to
nominate Mr. Nieoll, and the Republicans
in lorsetl him. Mr. Nieoll refused to accept
the nomination and indorsement, unless the
Republicans indorsed the Democratic candi
date for Criminal Judge, Mr. Martino, who
is the present District Attorney. Rather
than lose Nieoll the Republicans indorsed
Now the Democrats are not satisfied.
They don’t like it lieeause Mr. Nieoll ac
cepted an independent nomination, and
some of them insist that Mr. Martine shall
refuse the Republican indorsement. The
straightout Democratic organ, the Star,
tells Mr. Martine that bo cannot run on
both tickets, that he must get off one or the
other. It remains to lie seen whether he
will permit himself to lie bußdozed.
Some of the Republicans did not want to
indorse Mr. Martine, but the leaders said
that it would be lor their interest to do so.
The Republicans cannot elect either a Crim
inal Judge or a District Attorney, but by in
dorsing such men as Mr. Martine and Mr.
Nieoll they strengthen their State ticket.
They are wise. The success of their State
ticket is all they care for. It is not to be
wondered at, therefore,that tho Democratic
leaders kick against Mr. Martine’s accept
ance of the Republican indorsement mid
Mr. Nicoll’s independent candidacy.
The Free Whisky Programme.
Congressman W. D. Kelley, of Pennsyl
vania, is as well informed as any other Re
publican loader as to what the course of the
Republicans in the present Congress will be
with regard to any tariff legislation that
may be proposed. A few days ago, in New
York, he said that if the proposition to re
peal tho tobacco tax were presented as a
separate measure, the Republicans would
support it, but that if it were combined
with a measure to reduce the customs du
ties they would oppose it.
From this statement it is evident that the
Republicans intend to oppose any reduction
of the tariff. They acknowledge that it is
absolutely necessary that the revenues shall
be reduced, and, lienee, they are willing to
vote for the repeal of the tax on whisky and
tobacco, but they will not permit the tariff
laxps to be reduced if they can help it.
It is certain that the Democrats will not
consent to repeal the whisky tax. They have
made up their minds that as long as they
have contro' of tho government whisky
shall not be made cheap while the people are
demanding clieapor necessaries of life.
It remains to be seen whether Mr. Ran
dall will continue to act with the Republi
cans on revenue matters, and if he does
whether ho can control enough Democratic
votes to prevent the D into rats of the
House from passing a tariff reduction bill.
If he still continues to act with the Re
publicans the only thing the Democrats can
do is to present their tax reduction measure
and let Mr. Randall and the Republicans
lake the responsibility of defeating it. The
people will seo where the fault is, and will
correct it by sending men to Congress who
will not do tile bidding of monopolies built
up by the protective tariff.
Mr. Chamberla'n’s Lack of Tact.
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain is getting him
self disliked as one of the members of the
commission to settle the fishery dispute be
tween this country and Canada. He talks
too much. He pretends to think that any
treaty which he has a hand in making will
be rejected by the Senate. His alleged rea
sou for so thinking is that tho Irish people
do not like him, and as they are influential
in this country they will endeavor to defeat
the treaty to spite him. He is mistaken.
The Irish people in this country may not
have any love for him, but they will raise
no opposition to the treaty if it prove to he
what the American people want. The Sen
ate will deal with the treaty on its merits.
The fact that, Mr. Chamberlain is regarded
as an enemy by the Irish people will not be
tuken into account when the question of
ratifying it is considered.
There is another matter which Mr. Cham
berlain has been talking about. It is that
of a commercial union between this
country and Canada. He says that Eng
land might as well agree to a separation
from Canada at once as to con
sent to such a union, because it would
virtually deprivo her of whatever
benefits she now enjoys from her
connection with Canada. That being Mr.
Chamberlain's view of the matter, it is evi
dent that the commission will do nothing
toward bringing about freer commercial
relations between this country and Canada.
Tho impression appears to be growing that
the selection of Mr. Chamberlain as one of
the commissioners was not a happy one.
Mr. Edwin B. Haskell hits severed his
connection with the Boston Herald. He
was its editor, and owned one-third of it,
the other two-thirds being owned by Messrs.
Pulsifer and Andrews. Mr. Haskell has
been connected with the Herald os reporter,
editor and proprietor for twenty-eight
years. The purpose of his retirement is to
give more time to other business interests,
and to study and travel. He is only a little
past 50 yeai's of age and is in the enjoyment
of excellent health. Mr. Haskell, Mr. Pul
sifer and Mr. Andrews bought the Herald
when it was worth very little. Tiiey hire
made it a great paper, and it has mude them
rich. The Herald is one of the best news
papei projierties in the country. It occupies
about the same position in Boston and New
England that the New York Herald does in
New York and the Middle States. Mr.
Haskell will doubtless be greatly missed in
the newspaper world of Boston.
The concealed hostility of Sherman and
Foraker is said to be in danger of breaking
out into open war. Both want places on the
national Republican ticket, and Sherman
no doubt resents the fact that Foraker has
made himself a national notoriety by ener
getic work in a department of politics
which he considered his own—tho bloody
shirt department. The country will look
on tranquilly while they fight. It would
be hard to find two politicians who could be
allowed to choke each other to death with
less danger to the public welfare.

raised the cry of persecution. The Governor,
speaking of this to a company of gentlemen,
hooted the Idea that he was prejudiced against
the defaulter, declared that he had no other
motive than the enforcement of the laws, and
said that be should probably have the oppor
tunity of convincing the public that he had no
feeling of personal animosity against the man.
“The evidence against him will be so over
whelming that any grand jury will find a t rue
bill of indictment,” said the Geeural, “and no
lK*tit jury in the world can fail to convict the
criminal on such evidence. Then, when found
guilty and sentenced, he will change his tune,
and he, and iiis sympathizing friends for him,
will appeal to me for executive clemency. Then
will be my time to show that I have no preju
dice. I shall pardon him, for I will never allow
such an unmitigated scoundrel to contaminate
the penitentiary ot Texas.”
Eli Lucas' Long: Nap.
From the Louisville Courier-Journal.
Dr. Gober, the physician at the Frankfort
Penitentiary, relates a most remarkable case in
the history of his professional practice. He
says that two years ago Eli Lucas (colored)
came to the jienitentiary from Louisville, under
a life sentence for murder, and that until with
iu six months past he was healthy and capable
of performing the heaviest labor, At that time
he manifested extreme nervousness, and would
shrink and crouch into corners as if experienc
ing great fright. He soon lost the use of every
member of his body, and then foil into a heavy
stupor that evidenced the loss of all sensation.
In this condition, a dead man to all appearances
except an occasional turning of the head, he re
mained until the day of the inauguration of
Gov. Buckeer, when he showed the first symp
toms of returning life by making a feeble effort
to mutter. Two weeks ago there was an app&r
ent improvement, and to-day the doctor pro
nounced him restored sound in body and mind.
Lucas says he doesn't remember his illness. lie
thought he had been in the hospital but a day
or two, and was surprised to awaken from an
April iu p to learn that be was in the middle of
the month of October. The treatment was ad
dressed to the bin as the seat of the nerve
“Gumboil” in Luck.
London Special to the New York World.
That much iilted youth. Earl Cairns, whose
love episodes have at different limes afforded
food for gossip in society, has just experienced
a singular stroke of good iuek. His uncle, the
late Mr. MeCalmont, has, it is said, left him a
fortune of upward of <£1,000,000. Cairns, as
Lord Garmoyle. or, as he was more familiarly
known, “Gumboil,'' was the accepted suitor of
Miss Fortescue. a gaiety burlesquer, who tried
to aco in America last season, if reports
cabled across the Atlantic were true.
But he broke off the match and a breach
of promise suit resulted. in which
she recovered $50,000 from the idiotic sprig of
nobility. Pending the trial the corre iponclence
of both parties was published. Loudon was
amazed at the remarkable literary skill dis
played by Miss Fortescue in her love letters
until a day or two later, when it was discovered
that the lackadaisical creature had simply
copied whole pages of a “Lover's Ready Letter
Writer.’ Miss Adele Grant, the American
beauty, was his lordship's next fiance, and it is
said the match was broken off by Miss Grant on
the advice of the Prince of Wales because
“Gumboil” had not paid for the presents he
made her, and was over anxious for a settle
ment. of the dowry before marriage. “Gum
boil” is now' very rich, and despite his failings
will doubtless have little difficulty in marrying
a titled lady.
Qualifications of a Dakota Statesman.
From the Chicago Tribune.
Some ten years ago, wheu the Dakota Legis
lature met at Yankton, at the beginning of one
session a man from x\rmstrong county named
Edmunds contested another man's seat. A
committee was appointed to look into the mat
ter. After examining the ease for some time it
went into executive session, and one of the
“Mr. Chairman, there seems to be no question
but that this man Edmunds is entitled to the
seat. He got the most voters, the people evi
dently want him, and Yandell simply got in
through the rankest fraud.”
The other members seemed to look at it in
about the same lighfbu. aft r they got through

all so. I don't know anything About it, but

I braced up and said: ‘Mr. Edmunds, come out to
the barn with me and we'll get a bite of hay.
Don't he backward, I'll stand it, the hay is on
me this time!' ‘My dear sir.’ says he. ‘I haven't
taken a mouthful of hay for over twelve years.
Ido not consider it fit food for a man.' Now’,
this is straight talk and that's just what he said,
and I nay we don't want him in the Dakota

business of leaning against the wull and watch

strikingly large man. with a ferocious black
moustache and a hand the size of a St. Paul

anything and got one corner of my eye on the
side door. The man regarded me scornfully for
a moment, then suddenly jumped up and
cracked his heels together twice, brought hin

yesterday. The doctor failed to come to time,
and Miss Moore procured a pistol, and, going to
bis residence, opened tire on him. She fired two
shots, neither of which took effect, when he
seized the pistol and threw it away. He then
mounted his horse and rode away, and has not
been heard of since. Miss Moore returned to
her home, and is now a raving maniac.”
Tine question has often been raised what pro
portion of balls, exchanged by hostile armies,
will hit their marks and kill. Difficult as it is to
solve it exactly, some approximation may be
arrived at from the number of balls—estimated
at CO,(XX),000 which were tired by the Germans
in the war of 1870-71. The French army lost, in
the dead and wounded, about 110,000 men. Ac
cording to this, only one hall out of 11.1 fired hit
its man, and assuming that on an average one
man out of seven hit was actually killed, it
would seem that only one rille bull in 858 proved
fatal. If it is further considered that the nuni
lier of men wounded and killed by the guns of
the artillery are included in the above estimate,
it may safely tie said that not over one ritie ball
in a thousand lired proved to be fatal.
An altogether incorrigible thief is being
looked after by the Washington authorities. He
is 83 years of age, and, on being released from
the Baltimore penitentiary after serving out a
term for horse stealing, was taken to Washing
ton to stand trial for a similar offense. At the
capital he giroused the synijiathy of the court
by stating that he intended to reform, and
wanted to go to his birth place in Texas, and
spend the remaining days of Ins life with his six
sons, who, he represented, were in business
there. He was given his freedom, and also a
ticket to New Orleans. It now turns out that
he sold the ticket, and after knocking about for
a while, brought np at a horse bazaar, where he
again embraced an opportunity to steal a horse.
The last heard of him was that he sold the ani
mal for SOO and a promissory not e for S2O.
A San Francisco newspaper offered S2OO to
the one who would correctly guess the number
of types in a jar, exhibited in the exposition
there. Two men were successful, naming the
correct number—£4,2oo. How they citin' to bit
on the number is interesting. One of them
once guessed the number of shot in a jar about
the same size as the one containing the type.
There were 95.000. He thought t here was one
thltd as many type as shot, and so divided
95.W1 by three, and, as he. said, “added a little
to make it even." The other man saw a crowd
around the jar, and felt in his pocket for a
pencil with which to write a number. He
couldn't find one, and moved on; but afterward,
feeling strongly impelled to make a guess, felt
again for a pencil, and found an old lottery
ticket, on which was the number 34,2C0. He
borrowed a pencil, put down the number, and
won SIHO. •
