Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - June 28, 1890, Burlington, Iowa Bi.' ‘N't Ar' ESTABLISHED: JURE, 1839.) ORIGINAL PACKAGE LAW. BURLINGTON, IOWA. SATURDAY MOHNING, JUNE 28, 189a A Report of the Bill Agreed Upon as a Substitute. Debate on the National flection Bill in the House—The Wyoming Admission Bill Panned—General Washington News. Washington, June 27.—Representative Reed, of Iowa, has prepared in behalf of the judiciary committee a report on the bill agreed upon by the committee as a substitute for the senate original package bill. He first points out the difference between the two bills, the senate bill, being appliable to the single subject of commerce, viz: intoxicating liquors, and the house bill being applicable to all articles of commerce. The report says in the opinion of the committee all property which has been irn-borted into a state and kept for sale there ought to be subject for all purposes to the jurisdiction of the state and all persons who engage in the traffic within the state ought to be subject to such rules as it may effect for the regulation of that traffic. The states are the proper judges of the needs of their own citizens, and they ought to be free to enact and enforce such laws as they may deem best adapted to their situation and best calculated to enhance the prosperity and happiness of their people, and when a non-resident imports his wares into a state and then engages in traffic therein, it is but just that he should be subject to the same restrictions that govern the citizens of the state who would engage in like traffic. And this would be the effector the bill. If amended as recommended by the committee it would in no manner interfere with the right of the citizen of the state to purchase abroad any article of commerce which he might desire for his own use and have the same transferred and delivered to his place of residence. The states would have no power to prevent the transportation of any article of commerce through their territories, except in the necessary enforcement of their health laws. Its only effect would be to subject such property as may be imported into the state and there held or offered for sale to the laws of the state. The power of congress to enact such a law of this character can hardly be doubted. In the judgement of the committee, the report concludes it would be much wiser to enact a general law applicable to all articles of commerce, than to meet the exigency with reference to particular articles as it may seem to arise, as would be the policy of the senate bill should it be enacted. THE HOUSeT" At this point the conference report on the legislation appropriation bill was considered and a further conference ordered on some minor points. The speaker announced the appointment of Conger, Walker and Bland, con-ferres on the silver bill. Orders were entered setting apart Saturday and Monday nights for debates on the election bill. The house then took a recess. The house at its evening session passed one hundred and five private pension bills, and at 10:30 p. rn. adjourned. THE SENATE. Wyoming Admitted as a State by a Strict Party Vote. Washington, June 27.—The consideration of the bill for the admission of Wyoming as a state was resumed, and Morgan made an address in opposition to it. Messrs. Payne and Gray argued against the b\lI, and Plat favored it. The question was taken on Jones’ substitute (the enabling act for Wyoming, cIdaho, Arizona and New Mexico), and it was rejected by a strict party vote—yeas 18, nays 29. Mr. Jones, of Arkansas, then moved to substitute the enabling act for Wyoming alone, and it was rejected by exactly the same vote. The bill then passed by a strict party vote—yeas 29, nays 18. The bill declares Wyoming a state, and the constitution which the people of Wyoming formed for themselves to be, and is accepted, ratified and confirmed. The state is entitled to one representative in the Fifty-first congress. Other sections refer to public lands, provisions for schools, agricultural college, etc. The bill for the admission of Idaho was taken up and went over as unfinished business until Monday next, and after an executive session the senate adjourned. THE DEMOCRATS PROTEST. The National    inn    Bill l inier DUcuh- Hion. Washington, June 27.—In the house Dockery entered a motion to reconsider the vote by which the postal clerks’ bill was passed leaving it pending for the present. Tho consideration of the election bill was then resumed and Mr. Haugen, of Wisconsin, addressed the house in support of the measure. He declared it did not propose to touch state elections but did propose to supervise national (‘lections—a clear right of congress. The hill was not local but general in its application. Mr. Covert, of New York, said the bill was an evidence! of the distrust held by tho republicans of a government of and for the people. Tho republican party was used to meeting emergencies. They met them in Indiana when they sent in Dorsey with his money and Dudley with his floaters and blocks of five and Quay, tee Arch Angel of the party. This bill was intended to undo the work of the fathers of the constitution. This proposition was to bring back the returning boards of Florida and South Carolina; the days of the electoral commission. Days that (‘very patriotic man would forget if he could, if it were true as intelligent men predict—that the passage of tins Dill would have a tendency to revive race prejudice in the south and restore the southern states to a condition of the reconstruction days, If this were true then it would turn back the hands upon tho dial and retard t he progress of those sections and of the whole republic. Mr. Flower, of Now York, denounced the bill as undemocratic, unrepublican and un-American; as a measure constructed upon the idea that the small republican majority now in congress could better legislate for the people than tho people for themselves. The history of the political prosecution of some of our federal courts already rank with the unscrupulous abuses of law and this bill, if passed, would add many more such chapters. It sought to provoke a conflict between the state and federal officers and never before iii the history of the country had there been such a jumble of local and federal functions in any law. The attempt to control stab* officers in the discharge of their duties is a dangerous and threatening incursion into the domain of local self-government. The republican party had chosen the most inappropriate time to enact a law interfering with the local control of election. The last presidential election, with its blocks of Ave and its multifarious mcthoods of doubtful property had aroused the people to a sense of danger that beset the elective franchise. It is best to leave this subject to be dealt with by public conscience in the states. Mr. Smyser, of Ohio, said the loss incurred by the measure had been greatly exaggerated. Inspectors would not be necessary in a great majority of districts. The cry of tin* south was that it wanted to bo left alone to work out its own destiny. That had been tried for fifteen years and lie protested against its seeking to work out the salvation of the north on the same line. What the south wanted was to be let alone to appropriate tho negroes rights and do with the black man as it pleased. He protested against that. Mr. Vaux, of Pennsylvania, said the bill virtually overturned the constitution and destroyed our form of government. This bill made slaves of men to federal office-holders. Our forefathers brought on the revolutionary war and separated from Great Britain because they did not believe in taxation without representation. He warned congress that the time might come when a legislation, depriving the people of representation, would drive them to another revolt for the same principle. [Loud demoyat applause.] Mr. Kennedy, of Ohio, said it was idle to say the majority had ruled in this country and that the fact was a splendid illustration of the patience and forbearance of the people, when it was considered that the ballot box had been trampled under foot, for the purpose of defeating the majority of the people in the exercise of their constitutional right. All pretense that Grover Cleveland was elected by a majority was subject to the further statement that at that election a large number of qualified voters who would have cast their votes against him were not permitted to do so. The constitution was mandatory in requiring a reduction of the representation in the case of states which permitted the rights of the citizens to vote to be unlawfully abridged. When the appointment was made under the new census it was the duty of congress to make this reduction in the case of these southern states, if they persisted in depriving their citizens of the right of suffrage. If the ignorant black man was unworthy to the exercise of the right of suffrage let him be stricken from the list entitled to representation and with him tile ignorant white man be stricken the list also. If ignorance was the danger let us erect light houses education. They Call the Election Bill an Extraordinary, Dangerous and Revolutionary Measure. Washington, June 27.—The northern democratic members of the house have prepared a formal protest against the national election bill which is termed an “Extraordinary dangerous and revolutionary measure now prepared by the leaders of the party in power.’’ The protest says, if the power claimed by the majority resides in the constitution, which we deny, the republic has gone through the difficulties of a formative period, made a heroic struggle against dissolution, triumphed and successfully readjusted itself to the change of conditions without the exercise of such power by the federal government for one hundred years, and survived. The bill is purely a partisan measure, intended primarily to control elections for congress and presidential electors in all states and to intimidate, hound, obstruct and harrass by political prosecutions in unfriendly hands the adverse majorities in the cities of the north. To carry on tins scheme of imperial government millions of dollars will be taxed from our people and the judiciary of the United States prostituted to the basest partisanship in the management of (‘lections, and these invasions of the liberties of our people will be left for safety to partisan judges in federal courts composed entirely of men of the party in power. CONSCIENCE TROUBLED HIM. An Unknown Man Repays the Government Money Defrauded of It. Washington, June 27.—Postmaster General Wanamaker to-day received a letter post-marked New York, enclosing three one thousand dollar United States gold certificates which the writer says is interest on a sum of money of which he defrauded the government many years ago. He is the same man, he says, who some months ago sent $1,500 to Wanamaker for the same purpose. The letter accompanying the money is signed “Conscience.” GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS.

BOUND TO BEAT THE LOTTERY. A Proposition to Submit the Question to the White Voters of Louisiana. Baton Rouge, La., J 'me 27.—The importance of tho victory gained by the lottery Wednesday in the house cannot be overestimated. A conference of “antis” was held yesterday. Governor Nichols being present. Senator Montgomery made a proposition to accept the offer of compromise made some days ago. It is to submit the lottery question to the white primaries based on an entirely legal election. If the majority is in favor of the lottery an extra sessiou will be called and the matter submitted to the people at the general election in 1892, if the legislature so decides. The time suggested for the holding of the primaries is April or May of next year, and for the calling of the extra session thirty or forty days thereafter. Governor Nichols says he is willing to abide by what white democrats of the state shall say. Mr. Morris, when questioned on the subject, said that the simplest solution of the question will be to pass the lottery bill at this session and to pass also the election law for white primaries as sug gested, and that he is willing to give his guaranty in writing to accept the decision of the white primaries. He agrees to give up his proposition if rejected by the white people, and this method obviates the necessity and expense of an extra session. The lottery amendment was sent to the senate and an effort made to suspend the rules for reference to the committee, but objection being n&de, Ike matter goes over.    Jr The senate committee to-night decided to report the lottery bill favorably after making the amount to be paid annually $1,250.000._.

A Remedy Applied to a Skin Disease Proves Fatal—A Maniac's Great Swimming Feat—The Iowa Chautauqumu. Des Moines, June 27.—And unusually sad case of poisoning occured at seven o’clock this morning. Mr. James B. Stevens is a young man nineteen years of age. About a week ago he become an' noyed with some slight cuticle disease and went to a druggigt and procured some corrosive sublimate, which he applied to the afflicted parts of his body.

He vomited continually and chloroform had no effect on his system and death relieved him this morning. MISS OLIPHANT MUST GO. Governor Boies About to Remove the Last Democrat in the Capitol Library. Des Moines, Jnne 27.—Governor Boies, at the request of Mrs. Miller, the republican state librarian, has demanded the resignation of Miss Mary Oliphant, the only democratic incumbent of the library force. Miss Oliphant was a candidate for Mrs. Miller’s place and was splendidly endorsed. At Governor Boies’ request, however, she accepted the place of first assistant. Mrs. Miller entirely changed the duties previously attached to the office of first assistant, putting upon her much of the drudgery previously done by the janitor. This did not force Miss Oliphant to resign and Mrs. Miller turned her attention to the governor, who asked Miss Oliphant for her resignation. He admitted that there were no charges against her, but said that as she could not get along with Mrs. Miller she would be compelled to go. Miss Oliphant will not resign, but will be dismissed July I. HE WAS CRAZY, BUT COULD SWIM. An Iowa Lunatic Paddles Twenty Miles on a Trip to St. Louis, but Is Captured. Independence, la., June 27.—A marvelous feat was accomplished by William Blackett of Chickasaw county, an incurable inmate of the insane hospital at this place. Gaining entrance to the sewer he followed its course to the river a distance of a mile and a half. Here he divested himself of all clothing and started to swim to St. Louis. He was discovered when going over the dam at Quasqueton, and as all efforts to induce him to land were futile, he was captured by force after he had swam a distance of over twenty-two miles. With the exception of a bruised shoulder he was all right. IOWA CHAUTAUQUANS. A Ten Days’ Session in Progress at Colfax.

Fort Dodge, la., June 27.—The town of Lehigh, this county, is in a state of excitement over a mad dog scare. A dog came there several days ago, and though he was known to be mad, was not molested.

HOT, HOTTER, HOTTEST. save him. They were both in danger of drowning, when Milauskis tried to rescue them. The result was that all three were drowned. THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL STRIKE. General Condition of Affairs in Illinois and Iowa. Chicago, 111., June 27.—The strike on the Illinois Central lines extends over the road between Chicago and Cairo, Illinois, and between Amboy, Illinois, and Dubuque, Iowa. On these lines everything is tied up. On the Wisconsin division, which extends from Chicago to Madison, Wisconsin, by way of Freport, Illinois. There is no strike and the company has received assurance from many men on that division that they are not in sympathy with the tieup in Chicago. This however, does not help the matters as far as the through business is concerned because it cannot be gotten out of Chicago to send over the road and it cannot be gotten into Chicago from the other end of the line. Local business, however, is moving on this division as usual. Precisely the same condition of affairs exists on the main stem of the road from Centralia. Illinois, to Dunleith. At the extreme northern end of the state local business is goine on, but through business is at a stand still. The situation is the same on the lines in Iowa beyond Dubuque. No action has been taken looking to the employment of men to take the strikers’ places and it is not intended to make any move in this direction until all hope of a settlement by negotaition shall have been abandoned. The East St. Louis Strike. St. Louis, June 27.—The strike of platform men in East St. Louis is still on and there seems to be no immediate prospect of settlement between the men and the road officials. All railroad property in East St. Louis is carefully guarded by watchmed and there is a large police force on duty. ner that will leave no stain upon his reputation. The dispatch goes on to say that Roosevelt had written an open letter to Hatton, which will be published in a day or two, the tenor of which is expected to be that Hatton must either apoligize and retract his language or suffer the consequences. What these consequences will be is, of course, merely a matter of conjecture. Roosevelt is a crack shot, and has the reputation as such in the Daka-tas and Montana. He has the finest collection of firearms in New York, and would have no trouble in providing the proper weapons. Hatton is said to be awaiting some sort of acknowledgment of his attack on Roosevelt and to be ready for him. THE WORLD’S FAIR COMMISSION. SIGNS OF A COLLAPSE. Salisbury’s Ministry Resorting to Childish Expedients. Trying: to Cover Tp Defeat—Forced to Recede from Every Position. It Is Now-Trying to Secure an Early Adjournment. THE GAS TRUST CASE. Suits Pending in Chicago Dismissed and the Receiver Discharged. Chicago, June 27.—Suits pending here against the gas trust were dismissed this afternoon. The settlement carries with it the discharge of George R. Davis as receiver, though' no formal order to that effect has yet been entered. The document merely stated that all parties connected with the case agreed to have it dismissed. Upon learning the desire of all parties the court discharged the receiver, dissolved the injunction against the trust and dismissed the whole litigaion. There is another litigation which the gas trust has not compromised. It is the case of the people on the relation of the F. B. Peabody quo warranto proceedings, and is now before Judge Griggs on reprimand by the supreme court to carry out the order winding up the trust. Charlton’s action in dismissing his suit after having secured a substantial victory, caused much criticism. The expression has been fairly given in financial circles that the suit was begun for stock jobbing purposes and that iii bringing it Charlton was acting for a prominent speculator who is alleged to have made about one million dollars through the decline in trust stock consequent upon the appointment of the receiver and its subsequent recovery. RESCUED HER GRANDSON. Business Generally' Paralyzed Everywhere —The Heat at Aledo, 111., and Elsewhere.

[Special to The Hawk-Eye.l Aledo, 111., June 27.—There is a strong crank iii this city who claims to be in full communication with Deity and proclaims with considerable unction that: “In eighteen hundred and ninety-three The end of the world we all shall see.” London, June 27.—The farcical proceedings in the house of commons yesterday show the position of utter helplessness to which the government has fallen. Mr. Smith, the tory leader in the commons, announced in a faltering voice and a hesitating manner that, under the circumstances. there was nothing left but to drop the proposal relative to the fund for the purchase of licenses. He added, amid the suppressed laughter of the liberals. that at some future day he would announce what would be done with the money. Then three great cylinders, containing the monster petition of the publicans and their customers in favor of the dropped bill, were rolled in and the radicals bantered aud twitted the government and had an uproarious time of it until the petition was rolled out again w ithout being opened. It is now given out that no big measures will be discussed and that only the purely routine business of the session will be transacted, so that an adjournment may be had as early as possible and without further trouble. Signs of an early collapse in the Salisbury government are increasing on all sides, The ministry have unquestionably become alarmed and are planning a new deal which they hope will strengthen the cabinet and restore the popularity of the government with the many w ho have become disgusted with its tergiversation and indecision and are ripe for revolt against the conservative party men w hen an opportunity arrives. As though the predicament into which the government has placed itself were not bad enough, it is making matters immeasurably worse by the childish expedients to which it is resorting to make it appear that the compensation bill has not been crammed down the ministerial throat, but was merely put aside owing to the pressure of public business. The difficulty it has had in swallowing the virtual defeat of the bill would have strangled a ministry less desperate in its efforts to hold on to power. The Dully News in paying its respects to the government this morning declares that it has made a muddle of everything it has undertaken and is not able to kill itself decently. It is stated that Lord Salisbury, in pursuance of the new deal which the government is endeavoring to make, has strongly urged Lord Hartington and Mr. Camberlain to enter the cabinet. The former, it is said, w as not averse to accepting the invitation as a means of preventing the disintegration of tie* unionist party and leaving himself in the position of a leader w ithout a following, but Mr. Chamberlain, scenting inevitable disaster to the government, declined to identify himself with a ministry on the verge of defeat. W. Caine is going to have a hard time of it at Barrow-on-Furness. In spite of Mr. Gladstone's advice, the local liberals, who have no use for Caine on account of his ceaseless activity in opposing liberal candidates in the bye-elections, have decided to set up a man named Duncan against him. Lord Hartington has written a letter to the electors expressing regret at being obliged to oppose Caine,and the tories are working hard to defeat him. The prospect-.** therefore, is that there will bi* a bitter triangular fight, the result of which, except in so far as it concerns Mr. Caine, cannot be foreseen. Unless the liberals can be persuaded to withdraw Dunean, Caine will bi* overwhelmingly defeated. The passage of the first clause of the army bill in the German reichstag by a good, sound majority is a guarantee that the measure as proposed by tin* government will finally pass the house. This will leave the government a free hand until 1894. The vote opposed to the bill included the socialists, the volks and tin* freisininge parties and eighteen members of the center, who refused to follow Windthorst in support of the government. The combination of national liberals, conservatives and centrists which gave the government the majority can only be held together by concessions to the centrists, who hold the balance of power.

He wa^\ taken with Possibility of aa Encounter Between Theodore Roosevelt and Frank Hatton. The Des Moines Register of yesterday publishes a sensational dispatch from New YTork the purport of which is to the effect that the differences existing between the editor of the Washington Post and the civil service commissioner will be settled according to the Virginia code. The row between Hatton and Roosevelt grew out of charges made by Hatton’s paper of irregularities in the conduct of civil service examinations, Hatton claiming that “live” examination papers were sold to printers. A congressional investigation followed, Roosevelt relieved his mind by saying that Hatton was a liar. Hatton replied last Monday by branding Roosevelt as “a liar, a coward and a panteletie statesman.” It is believed by those who know the two men that tile end is not yet as Mr. Roosevelt's friends say that he is not the man who will lait himself to be branded Which people in run down state of health derive from Hood’s Sarsaparilla, conclusively proves that this medicine “makes the weak strong.” It does not act like a stimulent, imparting fictitious strength, but Hood’s Sarsaparilla builds up in a perfectly natural way all the weakened parts, purifies the blood, and assists to healthy action those important organs, the kidneys and liver.

The problem of Anan ce is always a difficult one to solve in the mind of The is-to-be married man, and likewise to the man who is married this problem is uppermost, at least for the first-and second years. To gauge the furnishing of a home satisfactorily by one’s income and savings, and to,determine how well one may live and still keep his head above water, and even to lay by something, is no easy thing to do, and my first year’s experience with the financial part of married life may be of interest, and perhaps of material value, to those men who have it in mind to take Unto themselves wives. When I first met the lady who is now my wife it was in the spring of I SSS, and I had about HOO saved. I was then earning $2.75 per day, which had been increased to that figure gradually from 11.50, and was afterward further inereased to $3 per„day. From that date until my marriage, in the summer of 1SS9 I saved enough from my salary to amount to about $500, which, after figuring aud refiguring again and again, I concluded would be sufficient to marry with and furnish a home. To furnish my home, which is a tenement of fire rooms, at a rental of $15 per month, cost ;is follows: Kitchen—Table, $2.25; three chairs, $1.35; seventeen yards oilcloth, $4.25; No. 7 range, $20; one-half ton coal. $3.50; groceries necessary to start with, including a barrel of flour, which lasted ten months, $10; other furniture, not including chinaware, which was received as a wedding present by the bride, $31; refrigerator, $14. The above includes a small oil stove, a most useful article, making the total for furnishing the kitchen $86.35. Chamber—’Twenty-eight yards wool carpet at 52>i cents, $14.70; one pair portieres, $7.95; two shades, $1.80; cherry set, $37; mattress, pillows, springs and comforters, all the best, $13.56; total, $64.95. Spare Chamber—Sixteen and one-half yards tapestry carpets at 65 cents, $10.72; one pair lace curtains, $3.08; one shade, 90 cents; one antique ash set, $88; mattress, pillows, comforters, springs, all the best, $13.50; total, $66/20. Sitting Room—Twenty-seven yards tapestry carpet at 77 cents, $20.79; one pair portieres, $8.45; two shades, $1.80; tapestry lounge, $9; brouze mirror, ft); extension table, $8; sheet iron stove, $18; four chairs, $8; making a total of $S3.(M. Parlor—Thirty-five yards tapestry at $1, $35; three pairs lace curtains, $10.98; mantel mirror, $10.50; center table, $6; plush net, $60; three shades, $2.40; making a total cdf $121.58. In the above furnishings all the curtains and shades were put up at the figures given, and the carpets were made, laid and lined. Wedding expenses, including valuable gift to the bride, tour, clothing outfit, etc., $336.25. Insurance of $500 on goods for five years, $8.75. It cost me to get married, furnish my home and step into it all ready to live, $652.12. By allowing $50 for tour, $10 for gift to tluj bride, $50 for clothes, $10 for clergyman’s fee, and $10 for wedding ring, the wadding expenses might have besa reduced $90.25, in which case the total cost would have been $555.87. Then I find by experience that my wife and I c<m live well on $5 per week, and then, after paying house rent and allowing an average amount for clothing and the necessary gradual additions to household goods, and after paying a certain reasonable amount for literature, amusements, church matters, etc., I can lay by about $5 per week. Hence my conclusion is that a man may get married on a salary of $18 per week, if be has $550 or £000 saved to furnish his home, or, if he earns a salary of only $12 per week, he can furnish bus howe as well as I furnished mine, and get married, pro-vided he ha* saved $1,000. \\ by save so much!' I will tell you. On i salary of $12 nothing could be saved to meet extraordinary expenses that are naturally liable to be met with For instance, you are liable to have an addition to your family, and if so it will cost you at h ast $50, and how can this expense be ipet if nothing has been saved unless there is a balance in tine bank? The first years of mariied life are oftentimes financially the hardest, for there are sc maty small articles to buy that to save much for times of need is almost impossible, hence the importance of having a reserve fund with which to meet these expenses, or else meet them with a good salary. lf a young married man will carefully guide his financial matters, with the aid of a careful aud prudent wife, keeping an account of ex{fenditures for awhile, and live within his income, he w ill prosper.—Seaton Globe. ____ They Never Fail. J. N. Harris, 3 Fulton Market, New York City, says: “I have been using Brandreth * Pills for the last ten years. They are a wonderful medicine. There i* nothing equal to them as blood purifiers and liver regulators. But. I wish to state how remarkably they cure rheumatism of the legs. My business (wholesale fish dealer) naturally leads me to damp places. I was so bad I could not walk, and at night I sugered fearfully; I tried Balsams, Sarsaparillas and all kinds of tinctures, but they did me no good and I was afraid of being a cripple. I finally commenced using Brandreth’# Pills. I took two every night for ten nights, then I began to improve. I continued taking them for forty days and I got entirely well. Now. whenever sick, I take Brandreth s Pills. They never fail.” Brandreth^ Pills are the oldest, safest and best blood-purifler and purgative known. They are purely vegetable, therefore harmless. They always produce the same effect. Other purgatives require increased doses and finally cease acting altogether. A course of one or two of Brandreth^ Pills taken each night is a positive cure for constipation, headache and all bilious disorders. Brandreth’# Pills are sold in every drug and medicine store, either plain or sugar coated.__ CITY BRIEFS. (PRICE: IE CENTS PER WEEK CIM CAMP LIFE. Mr. Wakeman Writes En1 ly of Their Characteristics. The Two Distinct Sides of Their USM Unfailing Reticence Among Strangers—Their Good Qualities and Happy Lives. [Correspondence of The Hawk-Eye.] Camp Near Dover, N. J. Jane 1890—There is something truly able about the almost unchangeable serve of the Gipsy in the presence of other than his own people, and of singular shifts and efforts to be as dumb. Catch him in a city or tradin a village or come upon him in any sol mixed company, and his reticence marked that the ordinary observer set him down as inordinately stupl This habit is universal among these pie and they break through it only u great stress of badgering or necessit1 A wagon-load of Gipsies once halted front of a wagon-maker’s in a small Pen Sylvania town, when* I frequently rn my home, and while one of them tried dicker for a sulky for one-half its val a really intelligent clergyman in the once of admiring townspeople put a of stereotyped questions to them about their modi' of life and the state of their in (xii* of life and the state of their souls, varying the same with other proddings of like nature in his line. But the lot of lost heathen were so bad as to smile at him, so dumb as to not answer him, and so downright wicked as to give him no chance for an argument; whereupon the good man lost his temper entirely, and consigned them to eternal perdition in one com (tact and canonical sentence. Standing next the team and thinking to have a little fun at the parson’s expense I said wickedly in an undertone to a particularly lively old dame in the wagon: “A shan gaugie—a grye chor! Tell him so and jaw the drom,” or, in plain English: The man is a bad one himself —a horse thief! Tell him so and go away. The woman gave me a quick look of half inquiry and recognition, which I returned with all good assurance. Then she called the Gipsy from the wagon-shop by a word. He came out nimbly, looked quickly at the crowd, and sprang into the wagon. Just as they started rapidly away sin* turned full on the clergyman who was still forensically disposing of their souls in different forms of future torture, and said, quietly:    “Hit’s    said ye're no better nor a horae-thWif yersel. Howsunuiever bus be, mebby ye might tx* a-tendiif yer own soul ar I’ profit!” Everybody was too astonished to laugh; and tie* good man sorely felt that bis powder had been burned for naught. Ashamed as I was at my own part in the retort, my astonishment was in the unheard-of departure of t in* brave Gipsy rule Hanover betray spirit or the brightness of indignation under Hie most exasperating circumstances. Full retribution came In a learned disquisition from the clergyman on Gipsies, tin* burden of which was that Gipsy writers and students were in league to give the race place as the most canny and cunning of men, when everything proved them the most brainless and stupid people on earth. Nor was his '(lea an uncommon one. That it generally prevails is not singular when it is remembered that their whole life motive seems to be to appear to all but themselves just that sort of people. It is only with the most ignorant of country-side folk, among those not their race who are thoroughly known and have been unqualifiedly tested, that they relax from this sodden manner and pretense of brainlessness. Test this at any time and in any way and you will find it to be true. As is almost true of one or two other races we have with us. tIi**y have no race sympathy with us; they cannot bear any manner of intermingling or mixing up. All people not Gipsies are. to their notion, made for from, to subsist upon, because this is true of and not exceptionally of it, or of individuals, TO RID A HOUSE OF MOTHS. London, June 27.—The Berlin corre-of tile Standard says Mafia ceded to I Borning Camphor an Effective Remedy for the Destructive Pests. Close all the windows and all the door leading from the room about to undergo treatment, open wide each drawer and closet and hang the contents over chairs or upon clotheshorses brought into the room for the occasion. Take a piece of gum camphor as large as a hazel nut for an ordinary room (as large as a walnut for a room 16 by 20), put it in an iron pot and place the latter within an other iron pot or upon an iron stand. Set fire to the camphor. It burns yry fiercely, so set it a safe distance furniture or hangings; the middle of the room is the best place for it, unless this be directly under a chandelier, in which case it can be ulaced more toward the side, as the heat is apt to injure the gilding or bronze. The dense smoke soon permeates every nook and corner and suffocates every insect that inhales it. Canary birds or goldfish are to be carried from the room before beginning operations, and as soon as the camphor begins to burn the operator may leave the room, as, provided she has taken the above precautions, there will be no danger of the fire spreading. The camphor will burn from a quarter to hail an hour, but it can be extin guished at any moment by placing over it a stove lid or tike cover of the pot.

Pretense, affectation, deceit, then, are become their nature. Nor must these qualities be reckoned against them as parts of their real selves. Foxes may be sociable and jolly and generous at home. But the Gipsy nature is the fox nature, limitless in degree, in all that side of him, in all things, which must be presented to all other mankind. That is the very es-sence of Gipsyisin. Rapidly as they are increasing among us, because all conditions for tin; same are with us infinitely more. favorable than the world ever gave them elsewhere, large as is the wealth they are piling up In farm and city property, they do not lose an iota of that impenetrable armoring of eternal alertness of pretended non-alertness, unintelligent implieity and unassailable rppellance, that have protected them through the centuries with wonderful insolation from every possible race encroachment. Today, and right here among us, they pursue, concerning the most absurdly trivial happenings, precisely the same suspicious exclusiveness, wary and all unnecessary precaution, and what would appear to us as outrageously silly finesse, that they did when battling for their very lives agates continental edicts of extermination in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. In this regard their precaution and overcaution are often laughably ridiculous. Countless little incidents of this sort have happened in my own wanderings among them, all too trivial to relate, yet all enabling a sure judgment of a noteworthy characteristic. Due instance, illustrative of them all, I may be pardoned for repeating. I had been generously entertained by several families of Gipsy friends in the spring of 1878, near Chicago, in the little village of Lyons, on the Desplainesriver, a sleepy, old and nest-like place which the Gipsies much frequent. Thinking to return their goodness, I proposed a trip to the theater. They consented only after great urging; and, looking forward to a rare treat in the enjoyment and wonderment, on returning to the city I bought and mailed them twenty seats for a Wednesday evening’s performance at the Haverly theater, then occupying the site of the present First National bank. Full of delighted expectancy I arrived at the theater, only to find the seats I had purchased tor my Gipsy frieridsentirely filled with ordinary, city folk. After sitting out a part of the play, I left the place disappointed and disgusted, not, however, without catching a glimpse of one of the Gipsies lurking near the entrance, who as soon as he was seemingly sure of haviug seen roe in my discomfiture, skulked away in the darkness. Business called me away from the city for a few days, but this desertion by my Gipsy proteges worried me. Hoping for some clue to their action, when I returned I applied to the box-office, where I learned, and with some asperity from the management, that my Gipsies, who had kept the audience in an uproar the entire evening of their visit, on receiving the tickets by mail at Lyons had ii iately sent one of their number to city and secured an exchange of from Wednesday evening’s pel to that for Friday evening. I see that their natural and one! race suspicion and caution of one their people, though a tried prompted the canning ruse to feat my entire piam then seta on me to observe whether my consistent with genuinely friendly interest, and then as to the true motive of 4 « ;
