The South In the Coming Administration.
New York 8tar.
•No good Democrat can contemplate
the attitude of the South in the politics of
the past twenty-four years without a feel
ing of enthusiastic gratitude. Beyond all
its conflicting personal and industrial in
terests the South Mbs united in cherishing,
as the pearl above price,the domination of
Democratic principles. To this end all
minor ambitions have been subordinated:
and without the unquenchable and united
loyalty of the South, the success of the
Democratic party would at any time before
the 4th of last November have been beyond
the pale of probability.

•Cleveland’s cabinet will come from the
South, if the commonest considerations of
justice and fitness enter into its composi

unquestionable that whatever Southern
Btates may be represented, plenty of good
men can be found who will nonor any of

We know that many conservative Dem

and principle are above mere conciliatory
considerations. For twenty-four years
the consistent, unquestioning, unanimous
fidelity of the Sonth has been the nucleus
of the Democracy of the Union, and salt
has been steadfast through defeat it la
temperate in triumph. Shall Its rights
and privileges now be denied, end its re
wards postponed, through any timorous
-or seemingly politic reflections?
Bat we urge the fall representation of
tiro Sonth in the cabinet, not from reasons
of justice more than mere considerations
of expediency. This election has placed
the Democncy again in power, but North
ern Democrats will show their failure to
fully realize the signlficence of the fact If
the influence of the South la in any way
curtailed or belittled. Since Democracy
ia best for the whole people, it mast be
maintained ms well as re-established.
.Now, the cardinal principle of Democ
racy la the rule at the majority—
. and the Sonth repreaents the major
ity of the Democratic party. Through
the disasters of the past its solid support
has been retained throngh the confidence
that success would give it a justly propor
tionate influence. If the Democratic lead
ers betray this trust; if the South is float
ed and ignored at the will of the Independ
ents, four years will limit the soope of tho
power of the Democratic party.
Bat, after all, this vindication of its
claims is unnecessary. The 6onth will
have, as it ought, an equitable and duly
proportionate influence in the next admin

Rumor of n Row Between the Headnnd
N. Y. Star.
Mach to the surprise of the politicians,
Vioe-PresideDt-cfect Hendricks returned
from Albany latejon Saturday night. He
took np bis old quarters at the Fifth Ave
nue Hotel. It waa noticed by the observ
ant that he did not register his name, and
that his manner was notso serene as when
he had left to go and visit his principal at
Albany that morning.
“Why, Governor,” remarked an ac
quaintance yesterday evening, “what has
brought you back so soon?"
“It was my intention to stay in Albany
an hour or two only. There la a press of
people round Mr. Cleveland congratulating
him at present, and anti! he dlipoaes of
them, and the novelty of seeing the next
President wears off, little can be done in
the way of business." .
"What do you think of Mr. Cleveland?"
“He is a very nice gentleman and hos
pitable," was the reply.
Gov. Hendricks’s return gave rise to the
rumor that he and the President-elect had
had a difference of opinion. This is what
was said in whispers here and there last
night When Mr. Hendricks had sainted
hia chief formally and commenced talking
abont the cabinet, Gov. Cleveland drew
the oonverettion around to Mr. Hen.

Swimmlrs the Missouri With Ona Hand.
An Indian named Tsl-ung-che-ung. one
of the nomaiics who have been roaming
about the city and vicinity far some time,
performed a tru*y wonderful test yesterday
In the presence of a few admirers of his
tribe win gathered to witness his exhibi

the Ule >s a strong, square-built, good-
look ing Indian, and his feat was to swim
the Missouri river with his left baud tied
behind him, bis reward for this being the
hand and heart in marriage of a bewitch
ing (?) daughter ol one of hia fellow-
TUo wonder of the feat was not only in
swimming the treacherous stream with one
arm fastened behind him, but in going in
water almost as cold as fee, with bis buck
skin trousers on to catch the sand and
threaten to pull him to tbo bottom. At 10
d’dock yesterday morning be was in read-
loose, and bis admirers, together with the
girl of his choice, were on the bank jnat
above tho bridge to aeo him start. It was
a thrilling and pathetic scene. The young
gallant gazed op and down the treacherous
stream, while the girl ki-yied and Bang in
a weird, mournful manner a seemingly
plaintive love chant It was a novel and
certainly interesting scene. Everything
The young Indian, with a graceful wavo
of the right hand, and amid the encourag
ing shouts ol the other jeds, shook the
band of tho - fair prize for which he was
risking his life, chopped offa little aborigi
nal music, in a sort of good-by helfo-lM-
don’t-see-yon-sgain air and plunged into
tbe river. A yell then went np from the
crowd, which caused ths capillary Integu
ment of tho rcportorlal cranium to start
zentthward at the rate of a mile a minute.
The swimmer bold dived from the bank
and was lost to view for a number of sec
onds, when he came to the snrface several
yards above the point from which he
started, having made a long diagonal dive
up and across ths stream.
He struck out boldly, paddling himself
along with one band. When ho reached
tho middle of the stream he raised his srm
and went straight down, disappearing be
neath the muddy surface. As the waters
cloud over him the maiden, who had
been watching every movement with in
terest, manifested great nervoni excite
ment, and lost as she waa about to jump
luto the frail canoe, which was half
ltnnched, her lover appeared with a toss
of tbe head, and his raven locks floated
upon the surging waters.
As ho neared the opposite shore the ad
miring braves, led by the girl, began
waving their hands and singing a rong of
joy, and when he reached the bank and
stood facing hts admirers, load were the
exclamations of the gladness sent np from
the point where he started. It was Indeed
awondrrlnl feat—swimming that stream
with one arm oompletaiy disabled and
wearing heavy bnckskin pantaloons and
shirt, with no boat or body guard
to accompany him. . Bnt he
accomplished it with apparent case, and
lor his reward received what to him was
worth more than all else combined. The
reporter waa told tbe wedding woold take
place at the camping grounds of the Indi
ans, twenty miles north, next Tuesday.
Among those who witnessed the feat were
several strange Indians, who bad been in
vited from afar to participate In the festiv
ities of the wedding.
IIANOEO BY A SINGLE HAIR.
Explanation of th* Ezscutlon of Waste-
lewsky In California#
From tho Ban Francisco Bulletin.
An explanation of tho hanging of the
murderer, Wasielewskv, at San Jose, by
means of a siogie hair, ia as follows: The
gallows trap on which tho condemned
stood had doable doors, swinging from the
centre of both sides. These doors, consti
tuting ihe trap, were held in poelUon
so as to form a part at toe niatform
of the gallows by a spring bolt This
bolt wos sprang, thus opening the
nun-weighted trap, by tho falling ol n
fonrleen-ponnd weight. This weight waa
suspended by a .mall cord, which camo
np to the nil on the gallows back ot the
condemned. TbStord instead of being at
once and (imply fastened, was woujd
around a "barrel." This ‘’barrel" was ly
ing In a borizoDtalposition, parallel with
tbe rail and held a few Inches above it by
upright supports at either end. The cord
holding the weight waa wound around
the barrel until tbe resisting power ol the
friction almost held the weight. This "al
most" waa arrived at by previous experi
ments, until it wsa reduced to inch a tine
point that tbe additional strength ol a sin
gle hair was enough to suspend the weight;
or, more properly, prevent the cord from
•lipping Ooe end of tbe hair was fastened
to tbe cord aud the other end to a screw
driven In the barrel. When the hair waa
cut tbe oord slipped aronnd the barrel, the
fourteen-pound weight dropped ten feet,
springing the trap-bolt, and Watlelewsky
shot through tbe opening.
It is said that Judge Beiden, who tried
Waslelewsky, suggested this peculiar
scheme ol retributive justice, bnt the de
tails were worked out by Sheriff Branham.
The hair which wss used came from a lock
ol the murdered woman’s hair.
