Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - February 22, 1890, Burlington, Iowa ■■■HHHTHE BUELINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: June, 1839.]BURLINGTON, IOWA, SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 22, ISIK). [Peice : 15 Cents pre Week. OPPOSED TO TI FAIR. SEVERAL STROUS SPEECHES IR THE HOUSE DISFAVORS THE EXPOSITION A S*gge« Ion That the Money Proposed for the Purpose be Applied Toward the Elimination of the Tax on Saga? — Gossip. and knew enterprises Washington, Feb. 21.-—It was resowed that when the house adjourn today it be to meet Monday. The regular order being demanded Hooker, of Mississippi, proceeded to address the house upon the world’s fair bill. He spoke in favor of Washington for the site of the fair, ft boing the seat of the government. Mr. Mills, of Texas, said this ^ras a business matter. There was something besides patriotism in it. Cities came here hurrahing for the old flag and appropriations. This was a proposition to make money. If New York wanted the fair they could organize it on business principles as they did a bank and hold it. So it was with Chicago and Bl. Louis. They were business cities how to manage business In the district it was proposed to issue bonds to pay the expenses of the fair. The people were now taxed and governed to death. Ho took it for granted the fair would be held, that congress would go on interfering with the rights of the people and it would be charged to patriotism and Columbus. He would have to do as the rest did— vote for a site and represent his people and he would vote for Texas, neighbor St Louis. Mr. Morse, of Massachusetts, said he would vote against the billa—first, because his democratic brethren had predicted in advance that the first acts of the majority of this house under tho new rules would be to wipe out the surplus and empty tho treasury of the United Elates One of these bills, and one likely to pass, called for the issue of bonds by the District of Columbia of 815,000,-000 one-half of which at least the government would be held for. It is supposed that the country would get back part of this sum from foreign visitors and exhibits, but he thought it would be safe to say that this proposed world’s fair, wherever held, would involve a loss to the treasury or the United Btates of several millions of dollars. It would be far better to expend 815,000,000 in establishing a postal telegraph throughout the country or to take off of sugar, a prima necessity of life the tax that bore oppressively upon every laborer or mechanic and the humblest of our citizens. Mr. Peters, of Kansas, said it was an almost hopeless task to try to stem tie tide of patriotic feeling. But before congress committed itself to this affair, it should see if the government could afford it. The regular estimated appropriations for the next fiscal year were •406,000,OOO. The miscellaneous appropriations made during the special session were 110,000 OOO, and during the long session the amount would certainly nol be less. In addition there were at least •25,000,000 of deficiencies, making a grand aggregate appropriation of $442,-000.000. There were only 8450,000,000 of estimated revenue with which to pay them. These figures did not take the rivers and harbors into consideration. Mr. O’Neill, of Pennsylvania, argued there was now t o little time remaining to arrange for a world’s fair in 1802, Mr. Blanchard, of Louisiana, argued in favor of the fair, but did not speak for any particular locality. Messrs. O’Ferrall, Virginia, and Gibson, of Maryland, favored Washington as the place for the fair. Mr. Bouk said to have the fair anywhere except at the national capital would take from it the most of its importance. Let the nation inherit the buildings which must be constructed here for the fair. They would be—they were now—needed for public uses. Mr. Wilson, of West Virginia, said we had had a series of centennials during the past fourteen years. Their influence for good could hardly be over-estimated. We should show to tne old world the grand est sight on earth—a great nation built upon the corner-stone of liberty. It necessarily followed the only right and proper place for the fair was at the seat of that national government Mr. Vandever, of California, argued in favor of Bt. Louis, claiming that if it was to be a financial transaction purely, why not advertise for bids and give the fair to the city offering the most money. He believed n e next exposition would be held in California, and therefore he favored the claims of Bt. Louis as a recog nition of the strength and greatness of the west. Mr. Carlisle said the exposition was to give the people of the old world, not an insight into our great manufactures and industries only, but to show them our great country. Ho would vote for St Louis, and next for Chicago He disap proved of the bills presented by the committee. Congress had no authority to hold a fair elsewhere than in the District of Columbia or the territories. He op posed the appropriation of 81,500,000 If a state wanted the fair, its citizens had only to incorporate themselves and hold it. He would vote for the bills only after they had been amended to meet his Mr. Kinsey, of Missouri, advocated the I jackson!*^of • popular feeling—all inclined to the enoica of Chicago. I Mr. Springer dwelt upon the great ex-I pense of holding the celebration at New (York. He referred to the failure of I New York to complete the Grant monu-I ment. Deduct 85 000,000 needed for I buildings at New York, and but 85,000,-OOO would be left of the Albany appropriation. Compare that with Chicago’s proposition, 810,000.000 in money and a site. Chicago would ask but 8500.000 or 8600,000 from the government, and that for its own exhibit. He referred to the contest at Albany and quoted the declaration of one of the state senators that to him the bill was “crow” and he would eat his share. If the fair was located in New York, in all probability it would be a failure. It was the opinion American Commercial company. of nil-; nois, which offered to pay a rent of j 856,000 and a tax and bonus of 87 ll for each skin, and also to comply with all requirements as to the care and comfort of the Aleutian Islanders. OPPOSED TO POSTAL TELEGRAPH. The house committee on postoffice* and post roads to-day heard an argument by Wm. A. Carsey. of New York, chairman of the executive committee of the Anti-Monoply League, in opposition to the limited postal telegraph bill prepared by the postmaster general. He opposed the bill! because it contemplated giving out the business of the government to a private corporation. The clerks in the postoffices had already enough work to do. The telegraph was mostly used by speculators and gamblers, and only eight per cent j T THE LEGISLATIVE TAXES THE WEEK’S HOLIDAY.

Mr. Flower said that as the gentleman had questioned the value of the bonds New York proposed to offer, he was himself ready to take all of them at par. Messrs. Fitch, Dunphy, Lansing, Spin-Ola, Wallace, Raines, Turner, McCarthy and Farquahar spoke for New York Mr. Chandler closed his debate in a few words saying the country could safely trust to the house to discharge its full duty and he hoped for a favorable conclusion upon the question next Monday. The house then took a recess. An evening session will be held for the consideration of private pension bills. The house at its evening session passed forty private pension bills and adjourned until Monday. THIS SKN ATK. Th* B«port on th* Disability Petition Bill Agreed to—'Other Legislation. Washington, Feb. 21.—The conference report on the bill to increase the pensions of totally disabled pensioners was agreed to after an explanation to the effect that under the act of 1880 it had been provided that totally disabled pensioners then drawing 850 a month should receive 872. That increase did not apply to those who were pensioned thereafter; that the bill as it passed the senate was intended to correct that omission; that the houee had amended it to as to allow arrears of pensions in such cases and that the result was practically the adoption of the senate bill as originally passed, no arrears being allowed. Among the bills reported and placed on the calendar were tho following: For the establishment of a pure food division in the department of agriculture; to provide for the establishment of a gun founry for finishing and assembling of heavy ordnance on the Pacific coast. Mr. Edmunds introduced a bill to punish crimes against officers of the United States while in the discharge cf their duties aud (by request) a bill to reorganize the rank aud pay of the personnel of the navy; referred. The senate then proceeded to the con federation of the house bill to provide for town site entries in Oklahoma. After being discussed by Berry, Plumb. Dolph and Vest the bill went over till Monday. A number of public building bills were passed, including one for Kansas City 82,500,000. The bill to amend the law relating to copyrights having been reached George objected to its consideration. Mr. Platt moved the house bill as an amendment to the senate bill, and with out action the bill was laid aside. Adjourned;_ TO TEST REED’S BULLING. fair to be held in St Louis Mr. O’Neil, cf Indiana, ’believed his constituents interested would be the best served by holding the fair in Bt. Louis Mr. Wilson, of Missouri, also argued in favor of Bt. Louis. Mr. Forman, of Illinois, was for the fair, not as an accommodation to for eigners but as an educational aid to the people of this country. He was for Bt. Louis because it offered the best guaran tee for the successor the fair. Mr. Hatch, of M ssouri, pleaded that the fair should be held at St. Louis, the great center of all the tr&de ana com merce of this country. Continuing Hatch ridiculed New York’s site. He described Forest park, St. Louis, with its magnificent r roves and one thou stand three hundred and eighty acres, where, said he, you could pick up your little park end drop it down three times a day. Mr. Oathwaite, of Ohio, said the cele bration should be held Mr. Carlisle Says the Quorum Question Will be Tun en Into Court Washington, Feb. 21.—It is understood that the democratic leaders in the house have held several conferences lately to consider the question of contesting the constitutionality of Speaker Reed’s ruling that “members present, but not voting, shall be counted to make a quorum.” Indeed, Mr. Carlisle virtually foreshadowed such action in his remarks in the house on the 18th inst when he said: “This question must go to some other forum when a proper case arises, and I desire to say that it is the purpose of this side of the house to see that this question shall be made in some form which will enable the proper tribunals of the country to pass upon it Anally and de ciaively.” When asked yesterday what he meant by a proper case arising, Mr. Carlisle said: “I mean whenever a bill is passed which affects the rights of an individual or of property. Then tho person or corporation whose rights are abridged or whose property is affected may seek re dress in the courts by testing the constitutionality of the bill passed under Speaker Reed's ruling as 13 what constitutes a quorum Of course we cannot take the matter before the courts; we can only refrain from voting on some measures which will involve the rights of some person or property, and so crest the occasion for testing the constitutionality of the speaker’s decision. We are all convinced it will not stand. A good measure on which to make the test would be an amendment to the interstate commerce law. Such legisla tion affects large interests, and the parties affected adversely would at once question the validity of the legislation I think the issue will be made before the session is over, though when I made those remarks I had no especial piece of legislation in view. I doubt whether the republicans will attempt to pass any important legislation by any such method When vital matters are up you will find them there with a legal quorum.” Ex-Governor McCreery. of Kentucky, said in regard to the same subject: “We are agreed to have the question tested in the courts, but we have not yet had an ven us. If Representative test Virginia, had been unseated by less than a quorum there would have been a chance to test the constitu tionality of the ruling, but there was a quorum of republicans present to turn him out. We are watching, and the first chance we get we will force the speaker | to make his ruling so as to have it tested. But you can’t raise the question on motions to adj ourn. It must be such legls islation as interferes with the rights of I an individual or affects property where the interest affected will question the constitutionality of the legislation.” GENER SJL WASHINGTON NEWS. The working people did not use the telegraph to any great extent and consequently would get but little benefit out of the postal telegraph scheme. If the rates of telegraph were reduced the wages of telegraph operators would be reduced. The postoffice department did not manage the business it now had satisfactorily, and this was a strong argument against its assuming additional burdens. CONFIRMATIONS.

Kansas City, Feb. 21.—The Times’ Trenton, Missouri, special says: A trainload of Spickardsville temperance cru 8aders and their sympathizers arrived this morning to attend the trial of the ladies arrested for demolishing the saloon of Thomas Brady. At the station a crowd of three hundred crusaders were drawn up to receive the martyrs. The Trenton crusaders were headed by a brass band and scattered throughout the ranks were numerous standard bearers who carried aloft banners and transparencies bearing mottoes of appropriate sentiment. The procession formed and with the sixteen Spickardsville crusaders in the places of honor, marched to the opera house, where arrangements had been made for a public meeting. Addresses were made by Rev. J. P. Davis and Rev. B. Lockhart, Rev. Robbins, of the Methodist Episcopal church, of Spickardsville, and C. J. Hinge, of this city. Rev. Cox announced that the Trenton ladies had prepared a collation for the visitors and the meeting adjourned for lunch. At 12:30 Justice Shanklm, before whom the case was to be tried, called the court to order. Thomas Brady, owner of the demolished saloon, was the first witness. He told how his building had been wrecked During the cross-examination the defense questioned him with the purpose of showing the saloon to be a public nuisance which ought to have been abandoned. The prosecution objected to that line of cross-examination and pend lug the justice’s decision on the point the court adjourned. FLEEING FBOM DEATH. Th* Hawk-Et* Bub eau, Capitol Building Des Moines, la., Feb People generally expected that when the legislatuae fully organized they would not take the usual vacation. Their hopes were doomed to disappointment, for no sooner had the work of canvassing the gubernatorial vote been completed than the question of vacation was very easily carried in the house. No objection whatever was made to this. Many of the members have not been home since the session began, and as they had expected to get away for a week during the early part of the session this long delay has made them more than ever anxious to get home cand attend to matters which have been neglected since they came up here Consequently the joint resolution for a vacation received the hearty endorsement of both houses. The people outside may complain that they are trying to get away from work, that they have spent too much time fooling around so far and that they ought to get to work at once; but these people must remember that it takes little time for a badly muddled political pool to settle, and the settling will go on better while quiet reigns. The division of committees made last night will stand with but one change. This morning, repuplicans generally were saying the democrats should not have both the committees on schools and text books, and they therefore desired to trade municipal corporations for schools. The republican committee at once went to work on the matter and made the trade so that their side can have the handling of school legislation There are to be thirty committee clerks equally divided between the two parties This is nine more than there were last session, but there will be use for them all as there will be lots of work to be done in the short session anticipation. The division of committees as it stands now is as foUows: Com Democrats Railroads ana merce, Municipal Corpora tiOD8, Text Books, Mines and Mining, Retrenchment and Re form, Claims, Telegraph and Telephones, An mal Industry, Private Corporations Printing, State University.

An appeal was made to Ft. Worth for physicians and nurses, which was at once responded to by the mayor. _ Disastrous for Stockades. St. Louis, Feb. 21.—A dispatch from!

Special to TD Hawk-Btb. Vinton, Feb. 21.—George A. Scringer, one of the oldest and ablest attorneys at the Benton county bar and postmaster under Mr. Cleveland, died at his home in Belle Plaine at an early hour this morning of pneumonia. ghenies. Obeying the joint resolution of the Ohio legislature and his own impulses he favored Chicago. Mr. Mason, of Illinois, made a strong speech for Chicago. The southern brothers charged the republicans with unkindness and too severe criticism in politic ti matters. They in turn charged ku«i southern people with the same faults aud bitterness was aroused. How could this be stopped better than by meeting OB a common ground in a common cause? Come to Chicago and see whether her hospitality differed much from Georgia, Mississippi or Kentucky. Mr. Gear, of Iowa, spoke of the glories of Ghicgo’s rise. It had pluck and push and energy, and would make the fair a •access. Mr. Kerr, of Iowa, believed a fair held in the east would not exhibit the true wealth of the country. It should be held in the great west, and in Chicago. Hr.

The composition of the committees will be left to the caucuses, and they have already decided that Messrs. Hamilton and Wilson shall have the power to make up the committees for their respective sides. This will enable the speaker and speaker pro tem each to shape in some measure the course of legislation so far as his party is concerned. Tn the house this morning a supple mental report of the inauguration committee was read. The ceremonies will occur in the house chamber. No tickets will be issued. The senate and house will occupy the floor with the state officers. The public will have the galleries, while the reporters will be expected to share their seats with those not having any.

In the senate the Harsh resolution was up for discussion again. Woolson had offered a substitute which Harsh very strongly opposed. Woolson’ a substitute is as follows: Be it resol\-ed by the senate, the house concurring: That the president of the senate and speaker of the house be and they are hereby directed each to appoint a committee of two from their respective bodies to act as a spi Cia! joint committee to investigate combinations or trusts existing or onerating ia lo va. and whether there exists or has recently existed or been in operation within the state any combination, agreement or understanding by or between an? persons, firms or corporations by reason whereof the price or prices of any article, artic.es or commodities of any soil or kind have been or are being controlled in such way as to prevent or lessen competition or to increase the price to purchasers or consumers, or to d minish the sums paid to producers of said articles or commodities, or to decrease the production thereof. 8aid committee is speciaUy charged to inquire into and investigate whether or not there is or recently has been any combination, trust, agreement, understanding, rule or regulation between manufacturers or publishers of school books and wholesale and retail dealers therein, and including school officers, teachers or others, whereby competition betwen sellers is avoided or prevented and the price of school books regulated, maintained or affected to the detriment or dtsad- nngthy speech accusing the republican >irty of fostering trusts by means of protection. He was in favor of the resc-otian fos the reason that if its spin* were carried out some temporary relief night be afforded from the evils de* cnbad therein. Just before the noon recess Lieutenant Governor Hull announced the visiting couponittees. He said that he felt some delicacy in the matter and had not consulted his own wishes so fiiuch as those of his successor, which method he denned meet proper. The committees were as follows: Agricultural college. Smith, of Linn; Benedict home, Kent; college for the blind, Mack ; fish-hatching house, Davidson; hospital for the insane at Mt.

The soldiers’ home com mittee was instructed to report the names of the army record and pensions of inmates of the home at Marshalltown Immediately after coming to order after dinner the discussion of the Harsh resolution and the Woolson substitute was resumed. Finn amended by extending the power of inquiry so as to include the laws of other states on the matter under discussion. Reiniger ^mended so that it would not be necessary to delay legislation upon the subject. Before the talk went very far it became a discussion of the tariff question, with Reiniger defending the republican position upon that branch of legislation. additional senate bills.

Speaker Hamilton and Speaker Pro Tem Wtison have .eft to think over and decide upon the completion of committees within the seclusion of their homes. The contest for chairmanship was rather hot and more will be disappointed than pleased. In the senate Lieutenant Governor-Elect Poyneer, has about completed the list, but both gentleman in the house will find it no easy task to s»tisf y the demands of the members. On the republican side the ways and means is generally conceded to The head of the judiciary will be Luke. The committee on appropriations lies between Blythe, McFarland, Smith of Mitchell, and Lucas. Any one of them would be a good man. The committee on suppres aion of intemperance will probably be Dobson. Chase is spoken of for the committee on representative of districts and Chantry for that on agriculture. Among the democrats who will be recognized by principal committees the impression is current that Holbrook will get railways; Dayton, lext books; Hotch kiss, mines and mining and Beem, labor The hatter committee every one thought would be given to Ewart but such does not seem to be the program.

Dubuque, Feb. 21.—Sensational re ports concerning the proDosed bringing of a suit by the heirs of Juden Dubuque to recover the land now occupied by this city have been published in the Chicago and St Paul pipers. Judge T. 8. Wilson, one of the oldest living Iowa judges, and who furnished a synopsis of the case in the United States supreme court which settles the question as to the title of Juden Dubuque to land in Iowa ex plained yesterday that the land belonged originally to Spain, and was conceded by Spain to France previous to 1802, and by France to the United States in 1803 Spain allowed no man to settle on Indian lands without permission of the Indians, and never sold land to settlers, but donated it on petition and in compliance with the Spanish law requiring the set tier to have the land surveyed and the record and the proceedings recorded in the government books of survey kept in the office of the lieutenant governor at New Orleans The supreme court decided, first, that the grant to Dubuque was only a right to mine, and rave no title; second, that no survey was ever made; and third, that Dubuque resided on the land with the Indians from 1788 to 1810, when he died. The Indians continued to occupy the land exclusively until 18®, when they ceded it to the United States. The court did not pass upon the question as to the bar of the statute of limitations, as it was not necessary, but as the Iowa statute makes ten years a bar to a suit, and as Dubuque died in 1810, and no one has since bis death been in possession, no intelligent lawyer will say that the claim is not barred.

Madrid, Spain, Jan. 27, 1890.—You ill see more olden, quaint and curious sights in the great calzada* or stone-covered highways leading into Madrid, than you will find in the Spanish capital itself. For o'd Madrid, the Madrid that was once but the advanced post to Toledo, when the Utter city was in the hands of the Arabs, has entirely disappeared. The Madrid of to-day is a modern city, with modern architecture; and only when now and then.one stumbles upon a musty, old and forgotten corner where antiquity and filth have been unwittingly overlooked, or when you come upon the gigantic apartment houses with their cheap rennaissance of Moorish tracery and balconies. will your expectant eye3 ’•est upon aught of Byzantine flavor or design, To the '.raveler, primed with romanti fancies of Moorish conquest, occupancy and relics, it is the most disappointing city in all Spain. To the cities of the south, one must go, to Toledo. Seville, Cordova Cadiz and to vermiilion-walled Granada, for the enchantment and exul tation promised in one s far away daydreams cf medieval Spain. One might better see New York, Boston or Philadelphia to know historic ground; lowly life along the Thames in London will furnish more interesting studies of characteristic classes, and Paris in a score of quarters can show intl tely greater piquancy and zest. Madill is bleak, solemn, ponderous. Its sit* els are wide, clean, but without life color. Its royal palace is a vast graced marble barn. Its Eacurial is a e, damp out-of doors cellar. Its res, plazas and paseos, the resort of rous idlers, convey a sense of aus tere solemnity and loneliness. Tts royal picture-gallery, admitting of no equal in the world in point of rare works of the oldest and greatest masters, may also with equal justice admit of no equal in the world as the most inadequate collection of representative schools of art extant. It has not a single great piece of sculpture among its hundreds of public statues. Its most tremendous and costly fountains look like gay show pieces of some opulently-advertised American foundry of yesterday. It does not possess a single cathedral; and you cannot find a church within its environs worthy a moment’s attention by the student of ecclesiastical art. Its river of high-soundiDg name, the Manzanares, is a spatter of wet from the Guadarrama mountains in winter, a muddy torrent in spring, a sand-blown ditch in the summer, and hardly a capable sewer at any time of the year. Its people ape the French in dress, attempt English manners in the saddle or carriage; and possess none of the better, and all the worst, characteristics and qualities of the entire nation. Madrid is simply the great-prison-house of tottering Spanish royalty; the breeding spot of aimless revolution and disorder; socially the most corrupt of all European cities; and, as an abidmg-plnce, from its inexpressibly wretched climate, the certain beginning and end of lingering death. AU this being true, and immeasurably more emphatic in the experience than through the consciousness derived from reading it in print, my own interest quickly passed from contemplation of Madrid as tho royal city of Spain, with nothing truly Spanish about it, to the study of two lowly classes, the lavan-deras, or washerwoman of the Manzan-eres; the Spanish Gipsies of the quarter known as the Barrio de las Injuries y cambroneras” and to a few hour’s idling in the Campo Santo, at the lowly grave of E3pronctda, the “mad poet of Spain.” This dripping thing they call a river, the Manzanares, comes down from the cold, gray heights to the north of Madrid, and winds half way around the city from the northwest to the southeast. What water flows through it, breaks in sandy shallows, forming innumerable little islands, and curiously bounded strips of land, all accessible bv any barefoot boy or girl; and it is an odd fact that though there are two vast and pretentious bridges across it, the Puente de Segovia nearly 700 feet with nine arches, designed by The great architect, Herrera, and the Puente de Toledo nearly 400 feet in length, crowned by the statues of Ssn Isidro and his holy wife, its sole use to the city of Madrid is that of an endlessly-used and all-sufficient wash-tub. Ten thousand women soak and splash and souse and beat the linen of Madrid within its scant waters every day. Not an article of clothing is elsewhere washed. No other than these Manzanares lavan-deras are permitted to labor as laundresses; and for three miles up and down the stream, fem opposite the infantry and artillery barracks upon the heights of Montana del Principe, r ast the win dows of the queen regent’s apartments in the royal palace, and circling around away beyond Toledo Gat*, the moving dots of red and blue, yellow and gTay, comprise this great army of Amazons with arms and legs on them like tree trunks; with voluptuous breasts and shapely necks; hard-muscled and bronzed as Turks, the most arduous toilers, the ickedest blackguards, and withal the sunniest tempered souls in Spain. There are three grades in this labor. They are the mistresses, or amas, the overseers or ayu dan ta*, and tbs lavenders* themselves. All are women The first are the agents who receive the work from the hotels, great houses, and the city agencies, in huge lots, and are reeponsi for its safe return The ayudantas or overseers, are really the forewomen cf from a dozen to a score of lavanderas each: and they are responsible for work placed rn their hands by the amas. At live in the mornin . winter and summer the lavanderas will be seen, many of them with children trundling beside them, creeping along from the barrios abajos or lower quarters of the city towards the Manzanares Near the river is an asilo or asylum, a refuge for their children. Here the lavander* first de posits her charges where they have food care and training free. until she returns for the little ones at night. Then she saunters to a vent* de lavanderas, or cheap washerwoman’s inn and takes her copeta if brandy, or cup of coffee, and at once repairs to her own banca, or little waihing-box or station, provided for each worker. By six o’clock you might count from 5 OGO to 8,000 of these strange creatures at work. The entire sloping, sandy banks are covered with drying-poles At this time of the year the huge wooden sheds on salt fish, potatoes aud coffee with a measure of red win? provided by the ama, duplicating th;b meal as a dinner, at four in tne af terne on. They eat like animals, and the moment their foad is disposed of, the tinkle of of the guitar is heard, and you or anv kindly disposed passer may dance with them, as I did, until the thirty minutes allowed them for food and refresco hav* expired. On these occasion every one dances, girls of eighteen aud wamen of eighty, end the scenes a’ong Manzanares are very picturesque ana interesting. But when I tell y u that one of the** iron framed wenches must wash and dry ready for the “starching,” which is done by the criadas in the city. pieces of linen equaling the cleansing of seventy sheets in order to earn twenty five cents per day, the poetical sense in it all is with the interested on looker, rather than vith the drudging lavanderas of the Manzanares. To the southwest of the old city, be tween the tine Toledo Bridge and the huge but unartistic Toledo Gate, and □ear the bank of the river, is a woebegone quarter known as “Barrie de las Injuries y Cambroneras.” Here I found my old friends, the Gipsies, to the nun; ber of about 1,000. They live in clum bling stone huts, rude wooden sheds curiously patched and mended like many of the squatters in their picturesque cabins upon the gray rocks of Harlem heights, in New York, am! in tents of coarse linen cloth set upon board bases, something as we used to raise our “wedge” and “wall” tent* when in winter quarters, while some of us were enjoying a vacation in the south from 61 to ’65. There is also one cid ruin of a house, formerly an almacen cr warehouse where some thirty or forty families herd like rats But th icy winds sweeping down the Valle' of the Manzanares had left them in such a state of torpor as made a visit to them devoid of special interest. They hold weekly fairs lure for the sale of horses and wild and pictureeque throngs of their women in fair weather dane? and sing in the calles and upon the plazas of the city, while the adivinss or fortune tellers stealtnily follow the workingwomen and Chula?, and penetrate to the raorada9 of the nobility inemselvcs, upon whom they practice their black arts of divination. My visit to these tawny folk would have been deeply disappoint ing had I not possessed certain passports to their favor from American gipsies This enabled me to secure information regarding the present whereabouts of the most powerful and respectable band of rom rajahs or “road lords,’’ that is, traveling gipsies, in Spain, which, if fortunate in finding. I shall speak of at length in my next letter. From the homes of these miserable outcasts I wandered to the Campo Santo or public cemetery of Madrid. To me there has always been a strange fascination about the mournful end of the greatest, and the most diabolic poet Spain ever produced That one was Espronceda the mad poet of Spain. I could not find his own grave, but the neglected tumba of his mother wa9 pointed out—the place where tne poet'a desperate agony dethroned his reason. His life and death were equally horrible He sprang from social driftwood His mother was a brilliant lascivia; his father a titled roue; his own love affairs horribly dramatic; his daughter the most beautiful and dangerous woman of Spain, and his death that of a madman. The balef ul influence of his daughter was such that royalty in Spain nearly received its death-blow, and every hope centering in the present royal succession was all but destroyed. Adelaide, the mad poet’s divinely beautiful daughter, was the favorite inamorata of Alfonso. Indeed, the two were desperately in love Queen Christina, tho present queen regent, bore all his ordinary affairs patiently enough, but she knew of the radiant beauty and intellectuality of Adelaide, and it crazed her with jealousy. Ordering a close carrots she was driven to the litt’e nest of a quinta Alfonso had provided for his love in the aristocratic suburb of Chambery, at an hour when she knew the king would be with her Hastily alighting, she attempted to enter, but was met by the Duke Sesto, whose eminence had been attained as a procurador rather than as a statesman. “Permit me to enter!” tremblingly demanded the queen. “It is impossible. I beg you to return to the palace,” replied Sesto “Make way for the queen—the queen will pass! ’ indignantly commanded the niece of Francis Joseph, emperor of the Austriag. “Even the queen cannot pass!” imper turbably and doggedly answered the duke. With a cry of rage Christina sprang to the carossa, snatched from it a heavy purse of gold, flung it full in Sesto’s face, which sent him crashing through a window of the villa, and, shrieking, “Dog! if your master, the king, pays you one price for your hellish occupation the queen will always double it to defeat hind” flew into the quinta like a tigress, and discovered the king and Adelaide in each others arms^ It is said Alfonso did Dot recognize the identity of the half crazed intruder. At all events, springing to his feet, he struck the queen to the floor with his heavy walking-stick, and then fled with Espronceda’s daughter, while the calm Se3to bore the unfortunate woman to the carrosa and saw her safely in the hands of her maids at the royal palace Two days later the queen was with her uncle at the Austrian court, determined on eternal separation from Alfonso, while the Spanish royal household and the high dignitaries of Spain trembled for result. The affair even penetrated the vatican itself, aud for a time was a sourcs of grave disquiet to till the cour.s of Europe But in a little lime Alfonso was prevailed upon to pre sent himself at Vienna, penitent and promising, and the politic Austrian em peror succeeded in sending Christina and Alfonso back to Madrid together Thus the queen’s ur.cie s wisdom made it pop. Bible for all Spain to rejoice at the birth of the late king’s posthumous son, the puny, ever-ailing King Alfonso XIII, to succeed him upon the Spanish throne But no man ever lived with greater genius than Espronceda He starved and sung, and Spain crowned him wile riches and honor. But these to him werh but instruments for the most hideous emphasis of his own deadly hatred of all mankind Stung to madness by the burning consciousness of his own un fortunate origin, he swept the universe of inspiration and language for flaming brands of imagery with which to anni hilate virtue and debauch all mankind His tremendous intellectual power and supreme genius, allied to his awful invective and the subtle poison of his divine verse, for a time corrupted all Spain. Bat an hour came when this wave of ruin swept back in indignation upon himself. He struggled against it with infinite daring and power until, realizirg thy enormity of his crime against the hope of all mankind, or the completeness of his own fall, he went mad entirely Breaking from his keepers, be rushed to the Campo Santo, where his mother lay buried, and there upon this now weed- P AU UNI80WH NDMBtR BF CHINESE FISHERIES DROWNED AT SEA.
