Smashing china?the action of the Brooklyn new York Board of aldermen in passing an ordinance prohibiting the issuing of licenses for laundries to any but american citizens runs the chinese problem into the Washtub. The cause of the ordinance As it is stated is that certain chinamen who have taken up their residence in Brook Lynh be been quite successful in establishing several laundries in that City to the great disgust of those who wanted very naturally to keep Tho business in Thel rown hands. But the chinamen Are not disposed to have their laundries broken up so summarily. They have appealed to Chen Lan pin the chinese minister at Washington to counsel them in the matter and he has Given them some elaborate advice having evidently taken Legal opinion on the subject. He tells them they have certain rights tested in them As residents which cannot be invalidated if they conform to the Laws that the Brooklyn officials have no authority to specify what particular nationality or Creed is a qualification necessary to persons to whom licenses Are Given and that the licenses they now have protect them in their calling until the term for which such License is Given expires. The time for action will come when they apply in the Spring for a renewal of their licenses. If licenses should then be refused they Are advised to apply to the supreme court for a mandamus and thus compel the Brooklyn authorities to Issue a License on the tender of the usual License Money. The chinamen it is said have adopted this advice but some of them who belong to a club they have formed in new York propose to break the Force of such opposition As the Brooklyn officials have manifested by applying for american citizenship. Mayor Howell of Brooklyn agrees with the chinese ambassador in his views of the subject and has Given notice that he will not any attention to the restriction in the ordinance in relation to the laundry business.

When the parts of the play of a your american Cousin were Given out by miss Laura Keene to Lier company the part of lord Dun dreary was assigned to or. Sothern who at that time was the juvenile Man of the company who took it Home read it and Tho next Day at rehearsal remonstrated against his assign rout asserting that the position he held in the theatre the reputation he had acquired before the new York Public and his own ability demanded that he should have at least a respectable part which the one he bad been Given was not. Miss Keene wa9 Flam in insisting that he should play the part and finally told him that unless lie did she would cancel his engagement. Or. Sothern could not afford to be thrown out of his position just at that time and he at length obtained permission to make some alterations in the text and determined to make the character a burlesque. As a result when the piece was produced his performance of Dun dreary was the Success of the play a our american Cousin was the first play that had an extended run and during its Long life upon the new York boards or. Sothern improved upon his original Conception of his part Aud determined to Star in the play having rewritten hts role so As to make it the Central figure. His Success was at once As great in every City which he visited and for Twenty years he has maintained his hold upon the popular heart mainly in that one character of Dun dreary. That he had abilities which would have Given him equal artistic Success in More legitimate characters is proved by his excellent rendition of David Garrick which he latterly played at least once during each engagement. Or. Sothern was some years ago separated from his wife. He had allowed mrs. Bothern�1,000 a year for maintenance but recently made affidavit in court that he was not All told Worth More than�10,000. The allowance was accordingly reduced to�176 a year and on this ground his daughter miss Eva Sothern was allowed to go on the stage although her father had always opposed that and his son is a member of or. John Mccullough a company. Or. Bothern had been 111 for More than two years and at various times within that period reports have been published to the effect that he would never recover his health. In parting with a Liverpool audience in november 1878, he said a i have not As report had it got paralysis softening of the kidneys spine or liver. The Plain fact was and is that for Twenty six years i have overworked my brain and body a no More. Still that a enough to reflect Upon?� notwithstanding this statement paralysis in some obscure form seems to have been the comedians malady although it was doubtless As he said that Over work was the cause of his troubles. _ some excitement was caused in statuary Hall of the Capitol at Washington last night by a difficulty Between the son of congressman fort of Illinois and George Taliaferro the coloured Man who has charge of the Hall.

I need not remind you alter this that you Hall from a state of splendid educational system Strong in the general intelligence of her people and of great earnestness of purpose in time of peace and in time of War. The name of your state is a household word in Baltimore. It is advertised and placarded everywhere around us. It is familiar to the Tongue of every citizen. It was another name for commercial Hope to our merchants and business men fifty years ago when our great Western Railroad was projected in search of the Rich and growing Trade of Ohio and the West. That great Railroad the proudest offspring of our Enterprise and the right Arm of our City bears its name and the Iron ligature which it has established Between the City of Baltimore and the rib the of Ohio makes the two As inseparable As the siamese twins. Let us Hope that the two Peoples will soon become As closely bound together by ties of Friendship and by ties of Trade As the siamese Brothers were United by ties of blood and that one of the first fruits of this Intercourse of souls today will be those results. A glance at the Railroad map of the country will soon convince Yon that Baltimore is your natural port of Export and import. It � your natural outlet to the sea As it is your natural Market on the sea bord. These facts let us Hope have been most convincingly illustrated to you by your inspection of our Harbor to Day.

In our contest with that formidable competitor with which we Are closing for a desperate commercial struggle i ask our guests of we May not reasonably expect Tbs Ald of the editorial pen of Ohio in our efforts to secure the Trade of that state As an important auxiliary to our Success i feel sure that a can but by aiding us you would be promoting on economic grounds the agricultural and commercial interests of your 8tate. We ars an old City full of historic and com Mere Lal interests. We Hare just complot �0 of the president of the Valley Railroad g m a any is quite lengthy and states that by the connections proposed the advantage which the Valley Road will secure is a transit line from Lynchburg or Buchanan to the Iron centres named much Shorter in distance than by any existing route. The report concludes a in View of the suggestions be fur made of the very Gross uncertainty As to the company s ultimate ability to Complete the Road to Salem of the absolute certainty that great delay must interfere even if its construction should finally be accomplished the Board has duly considered the Only alternative left in which is to limit its efforts for the present to securing the completion of the Road to Lexington and it of making the connections referred to with the Richmond and Aue Ghanuy Road at that Pohnl with proper Guarani a that the company a efforts will Btu thus limited for the present with mortgage Security upon the franchise and property of the company and with reliable indemnity against coercive legislation on theone hand and hostile legislation on the other in the future the Board is satisfied that the amount of Money which will be required to Complete the Road to Lexington can be promptly secured. At the same time the B�Ard cannot fall to recognize and appreciate the difficulties which surround the subject. In the firer place the stockholders must consent to place a mortgage upon the franchise and property of the company in order to secure the loan necessary to accomplish the purpose aforesaid namely the completion of Ute Road to Lexington. In the second place or must by common consent of the parties in interest be agreed that the Southern terminus of the Valley Railroad shall continue to be at Lexington until the company itself controlled by a majority of its own interests shall conclude that it will be Safe and judicious for it to extend Ila line southward from that Point of which said company alone shall judge free from and protected against coercive legislation on the one hand and unfriendly legislation on the other. In the third place that the county of Rockbridge the town of Lexington and the City of Staunton shall make Good their Bomi subscriptions for the purpose of aiding in effecting the proposed object. The Board feel bound in Candor to say that except substantially upon the terms and conditions set Forth in this report they can at present see no Way open to an Advance movement even to Lexington and that for Extension South of that Point the parties la interest must in Good Faith agree to Awalt the eventualities of the future with the Hope when it shall hereafter seem to de desirable that the company with increasing Prosperity and business will find itself Able to take the Onward step toward the Southwest.
