Price five Lom chief Hennessey was doomed to men chosen to do shooting and a boy to gift of Manuel Politz discloses the mafia. New Orleans la., april 12.�?the errand jury in its forthcoming report upon the Hennessy murder the subsequent miscarriage of Justice and the wreaking of popular vengeance upon the italian suspects in the Parish prison will for the first time probably give to the Public the confession of Manuel Politz. The statement he made never reached the jury. The state claimed that while Politz incriminated others he protested his own innocence and besides there were contradictions in his confession which would destroy its value. There was Strong evidence against Politz and it was preferred to hold him prisoner. Notwithstanding his seeming Lack of reason the sicilian understood this Well and another terror grew upon him a fear greater than that of the Law. It was the dread of the Strong and hidden murderous Arm of the mafia. He knew its methods find its Power Well and when the Bronze and Crimson cheeked Little country woman whom he called his wife by right of Possession came to him and denounced him for having gone Back on his countrymen he would no longer eat tile food she brought. He Drew further away from his fellow suspects and did not even feel Safe under the prison roof with them. The dread which haunted him doubtless preyed upon Ilia mind until ills condition was very close upon insanity. The Swift punishment meted out to him by an indignant populace must have appeared to him As a Relief and he could hardly have regretted that the a fever called living was Over at polity a confession was made to Tho District attorney. About the same Story was told to his attorney and portions of it were told at various times to those who came in Contact with him. Said he a i had joined a certain society of my countrymen the president of which was Charles Matranga. This society. I supposed was formed for Benefit of my countrymen. Macheca Matranga and others were prominent members. On a saturday night i was at a meeting of the society at which Matranga Macheca and others were present. It was there stated that the purpose of the meeting was to decide who were to a a do chief Hennessy. Quot the names of the members were placed in a Box by numbers and to were drawn therefrom. These i Omen were notified to meet and arrange the manner and Means of carrying out the work allotted to them the men met in a room Over a place owned by Duffee. The Money was then distributed among six men each one receiving about $200. Quot i was asked to carry a sack of guns from the meeting room to the House of the Shoemaker monastery on guard near Basin. I refused to do so not knowing at the time Why the guns were to to taken there. Matranga was there and said he would carry the sack. Quot two later meetings were held near the Poydras Market. I am not sure whether the Money was distributed at these meetings or at Duffee a. The plan agreed upon was that on the night of oct. 15 every one was to meet at Monasterios place. Mar a Liezin a boy was instructed to be on the Lookout and watch the approach of chief Hennessy. He was to wait on Rampart St., and when to made sure that the chief was coming lie was to pass Hennessy and run rapidly out Girard St., and when opposite Monasterios was to give the Peculiar italian whistle. Quot when the whistle was Given by the boy on the night of the 15th of october Monas Terio opened the door and said to the others the chief the the rest then stepped out through the Side door of Monasterio s shanty and through the Largo Gate into the Street immediately opening fire upon a Man on the opposite Side who was quietly walking along. Naff cd. Mardi e/,1, Baguette and Monasterio killed the chief. I was not there and did not know anything about the killing until the following sunday morning. Quot i heard of Henri Essyl a shooting for the first Timo on that sunday morning when my landlord John was Reading the in answer to a question How to could know any of these things if he was not fire sent to replied that Monasterio told Lim All about it. Quot i took no part in the shooting who said a and did not know that there was any intention on the part of anybody to kill or. Hennessy. Quot on sunday morning i arose and did not go any place in particular remaining around the House All Day. I could network because i had a sore Arm. I am innocent and my conscience is As White As the Wall a about the time of or. Hoards appointment As counsel the great change in Politz had commenced and he was suspicious of everybody and particularly of Tho defendants and their counsel who had laughed at his confession. Or. Heard did not escape Politzi a unjust distrust and when he sat Down among Tho other defence counsel. Politz was convinced in his narrow mind that or. Heard was against him. Politz actions resulted in or. Heard a withdrawal mid the appointment of or. John q. Flynn a Young criminal lawyer. Or. Flynn had considerable knowledge of italians of Politzi a class and set about obtaining his Peculiar clients Good will. Or. Flynn after trying in several ways to impress his Friendly intentions upon Politz adopted a characteristic italian method to test his Faith. When alone with the prisoner or. Flynn handed him a Glass of water to drink. Politz still suspicious declined unless or. Flynn first tasted the liquid. Or. Flynn refused saying Quot of you have Confidence in me Politz hesitated a moment his look showed Surprise and then he seized the Glass and drained its contents. After that Politz trusted his lawyer More than he had any person since his arrest. During that Day there were Many private interviews Between or. Flynn and the judge and District attorney. The reporters puzzled themselves As to the object of these consultations until it appeared that or. Flynn urged and obtained the separation of Politz from tile other accused and even from the prison Walls. That nig tit Politz slept in the sheriffs office in the criminal court building in charge of Deputy sheriffs Jones and Nelson. About 9.30 of clock or. Flynn was seen to enter the building and he did not leave until 2.30 in the morning having spent nearly the entire night with his client. His object from the Best information at hand was to prepare Politz for the witness stand in the morning. The result was Tkv Dently not satisfactory. Or. Flynn looked worried and spent the greater portion of the morning in a Hunt around the lonely Girod Street cemetery for Politzi a brother. The latter was probably required to assist in bringing Politz upon the witness stand and placing him in the mood to Tell his Complete Story to the court. Politzi a brother was never found. Had he been his presence in court would have created a sensation and the state would have deemed him a revelation to strengthen its Case. It is said that there was a close resemblance Between the Brothers except that Tho missing Politz had a Small Black Mustache while Poilitz s defence was mat his upper lip was always closely shaven. Had this brother been produced the witnesses might have identified him As the Man at Tho killing and Yolitz would have been the most important witness for the state. Perhaps the brother anticipated some such denouement and. Fearing arrest sought safety in flight. He is said to have returned to Italy. There was another sensational incident eur Tho morning of March la in the office of the criminal sheriff whore Politz was Given temporary quarters. Or. Flynn after having been at work on the Case most of the night entered the building at 7.30 of clock in the morning. He went at once to Politz and found his client very quiet and apparently sound in body and tranquil in mind. Or. Flynn sad Quot Good there was a pause of a few moments and Politz called his attorney Over and asked him to Bend Over towards him. To the Surprise of those present Politz said in English a language of which head pretended ignorance Quot i want to whisper in your or. Flynn complied and placed his ear close to his client s Mouth. Somebody warned the lawyer that it might be a ruse by which his ear would suffer. Or. Flynn a Only reply was to place his gloved hand near his ear but Politz again said in Plain English Quot you need not fear me. I no Hurt then Politz in a perfectly rational and collected manner continued Quot place me upon the witness stand today and i will Tell All i know or. Flynn replied that lie could not do that but if Politz wished to make a statement All he had to do was to Rise in court express the wish to testify and the court would then doubtless permit the lawyer to place the sicilian on Tho stand in he desired. So it was understood that Politz was to startle the court and the Community that Day. Court opened. Politz was at the bar. So was or. Flynn. The trial was resumed. Several anxious eyes were on Politz. He seemed to feel the time had come. Politz arose and faced Tho court. There was a hush. Politz appeared Calm enough. Suddenly a look of intense terror overspread his features. Then came a cry. The Only words Politz spoke were in italian. A a Scot Fedi killed the then Tho luckless sicilian fell face Forward upon the floor. Had the heavy hand of the mafia reached Forward and silenced the telltale Tongue anyhow Politz was never again in condition to testify. From that moment the policy of or. Flynn changed and tile Legal defence of Politz Hogan. In Justice to Matranza. One of the suspects mentioned by Politz it is but fair to say that no connection with the mafia was proven upon the trial. Another name mentioned by Politz and not included in the above statement was that of a prominent italian fruit importer who has never been mentioned Iii connection with the Case except As having been seen in company with some of the accused at a place and time not connected with the killing of Hennessey. Of average Prosperity. Thirty eighth annual report of Massachusetts Beard of agriculture. The 38th annual report of the Secretary of the Massachusetts Board of agriculture has been submitted to the legislature. It contains a number of interesting facts As Well As includes the eighth annual report of the state agricultural Experiment station. It says in part Quot the past year has been one of average Prosperity to the agricultural interests of the mate. Tho Winter of 1889-90 was unusually mild the mildness of the four months ending feb. 28, 1890, was unparalleled since 1836. Quot this office is in constant receptor letters of inquiry about abandoned farms in Massachusetts some of which Are in Ideal situations for summer residences of the Well to do. And others adapted to specialities in agriculture. If the legislature would provide for an official list and descriptions of such property somewhat after the plan pursued in new Hampshire it is believed that Many of these farms might be sold and thus become productive property enhancing the valuation of the state and adding to its production and population. The amount of premiums paid for farm products during Tho year 1890 was $10,280 against $3193 in i860, and for live Stock $20,804 against $9114 in 1860, Quot two now agricultural societies besides the Worcester East will this year become eligible to Tho Bounty of Tho state and have chosen members of the state Board of agriculture. Quot the legislature of last year made Liberal provision for a Campaign of extermination against the Gypsy Moth for which an appropriation of #50,000 was made. Much work has been done and much Good accomplished by the commission. The habits of Tho creature have been observed and millions of them destroyed. It is believed that they have been prevented from spreading Over new territory and thus with the experience of Tho last season Tho operations of the coming Spring Aud summer will be much More successful. Scientists All agree that if it is possible to extirpate the pest it should be done let the expense be what it May. It will Haji disgrace to the Commonwealth that in years ago stamped out pleuropneumonia which had gained a Lodgment within her Borders if she fails to eradicate this pest. A the yield of Small fruits was fair and the prices very Good. The tobacco crop in the Connecticut Valley was unusually Large of excellent Quality and mostly harvested Iii Good condition but the wet muggy weather in september caused pole sweat to make its appearance in the Sheds and considerable damage resulted.

Onions turnips Rye and Garden truck were generally satisfactory Oats and Beans were greatly injured by unfavourable weather grape culture in this state has not increased to any extent in the past five years. Last years crop was a fair one. The Cranberry crop was somewhat less than an average owing to drought tire Worms worm in the Berry Hail and late frosts. Quot on sept. I the potato crop promised to be a fair average and blight and rot were not very prevalent. The wet muggy weather the first half of september however was very favourable to the development of this fungus and As a consequence in Many localities potatoes rotted badly in Tho Field and in the cellar. Quot the Hay crop proved to be nearly an average one. Much of it. However was damaged by attempting to cure it during unfavourable the report also contains a number of addresses and lectures by agricultural authorities on various subjects of interest to Farmers. What pearls Are. All kinds of precious stones Are injured by fire. St. Loti Globe Democrat pearls Are Carbonate of Lime the same substance of which the Shell of the Oyster is composed and Are identical with Tho Quot Mother of Pearl a which forms the Interior of the Pearl Oyster Shell a High temperature will reduce any Pearl to common Lime and in the heat of an Ordinary lire a Pearl will completely lose its identity and become a Pinch of Whito powder.

Minn., april 12.�?in the House yesterday the Hompe Railroad Bill already passed by the Senate was considered in committee of the whole and recommended for passage. Senator Hompe is an Alliance member but the representatives of that party in the House had. Until today refused to have anything to do with his Bill considering it not sufficiently Radical. The House Bill Currier a was a decidedly Radical measure and was Defeated by the combined republicans and democrats of the House. The favourable action on the Hompe Bill today was unanimous and the result will be the present settlement of Radical Railroad legislation in Minnesota. Lockwood a Hill prohibiting trusts Ann pools has passed the House by a vote of 67 to i. It provides that any corporation or company that shall become a member of any Pool or Trust to regulate or fix the Price of provisions or other commodities or to fix or limit mining or manufacturing production shall be deemed guilty of a conspiracy to defraud and be Bable to a Lino of from $1000 to $5000.

Washington april 7.�?senator George f. Edmunds of Vermont Lias resigned the resignation to take effect Tho 1st Day of november next. The following is a copy of the letter tendering his resignation to the governor of Vermont United states Senate. I Washington. April 6, 1891.1 sir considerations entirely personal Lead me to tender to you. As the governor of the state of Vermont my resignation of the office of senator of the United states the resignation to take effect on the first Day of november a. D. 1891. This action has Boen for some time in contemplation Aud is finally decided on and communicated to you at this time in order that there May be ample time to Hoar and consider the views of the people in our state in respect to the selection of my successor. In thus terminating my official relations with the state i beg to express to her steadfast intelligent and patriotic citizens my profound gratitude for Tho Long and unwavering Confidence and support they have Given me covering an eventful period of a Quarter of a Century in my efforts to promote and defend so far As i have been Apio their Honor and welfare in common with that of All the people of the United states. In ceasing to be a senator i am proud that i continue to be a citizen of our beloved Commonwealth and that i May with my fellow citizens in private life continue to strive for the maintenance of those principles of Liberty Equality and Justice in government which have without the Shadow of turning animated them from the foundation of the Republic. I am sir very respectfully yours Georgic f. Edmunds. His excellency Carroll s. Page Hyde Park Vermont. Sex congressman Stewart to succeed Edmunds. St. Albans vt., april 8.�?the resignation of senator George f. Edmunds has created a decided Breeze among republicans throughout the state to the majority of whom it was wholly unexpected. The selection of the Man to fill out his unexpired term devolves upon gov. Page As the legislature is not in session and will not Convene before october. The Only candidates for the office Are sex gov. And sex con Gressman John w. Stewart and sex gov. J. Gregory Smith of Middlebury. Judging from Apnoea ranges Stewart will receive tile appointment. Long a Leader in Senate. One who played important part in shaping legislation. Or. Edmunds entered Tho Senate in april. 1866. He was appointed the successor of Tho venerable Solomon Foote. To began immediately to take part in the discussions of the body in which were then such men As Sumner Fessenden Trumbull Wade and Chandler. Iii the following december the republicans in Congress began the Groat tight with president Johnson and to or. Edmunds was entrusted the tenure of office act which lie reported to the Senate and advocated till it was passed. As a member of the judiciary committee he has had a leading part in shaping the More important legislation of Congress for Many years. With the reconstruction Laws no Man has had More to do. In the great contest with Johnson lie was a vigorous participant hut boing a Young senator he could not take so prominent a part As some others. Iii 1868 he stood squarely by the Side of Sumner Aud Wade in sustaining Stanton. All that he could do to put Johnson out of the Whito House was done and when that Enterprise failed it was he who moved a vote of thanks to Stanton which was carried. In 1809 Grant came into Nower. And the Senate chamber became the theatre of novel political scenes. Sumner. Schurz and Trumbull quarrelled with Tho administration Ana finally left Tho party. The san Domingo scheme was the Rock on which the party split. On this question Edmunds was entirely agreed As to the unwise course in the matter of Gen. Grant. Ile was fortunate however in having the tact to get on with Grant and the latter always praised the Vermont senator for his practical Good sense. On financial question Edmunds was always strongly in favor of tile principles securing a sound currency. To believed that resumption of specie payments could not be obtained without Tho adoption of a definite policy for years before it was adopted. When the reaction from Tho inflation movement occurred after the panic of 1873, and the veto by Grant of a the s400.000.000 it was Edmunds and Conkling who forced the Republican senators in caucus to agree unon Tho resumption Edmunds was also the author of the electoral commission act by which Tho great controversy of 1876 was settled. In 1880 or. Edmunds name was mentioned As a candidate for the presidential nomination and he received Somo votes in the Chicago convention but to never expressed himself As desirous of Tho presiden Tal office and his friends were never organized to systematically push his candidacy. In the 47 the Congress or. Re mimes secured the passage of a Hill for the suppression of polygamy which became know n As the Edmunds anti mormon Bill. At the close of the session of �?T82 he was elected president of the Senate to succeed senator David Davis whose term then expired which office he filled with dignity and fairness. Iii 1883, As again in 1889, he was reelected by his state without opposition the number of democrats who always insisted on voting for him at such times being Iii hts eyes one of the grandest compliments his state paid him. In 1880 or. Edmunds first came before the country As an acknowledged candidate for the presidency and at the National Republican convention held in Chicago that year he received 34 votes on the first ballot. In 1884 the growth of opposition in the Republican party against Dir. Blaito led or. Edmunds to become still More conspicuous in the presidential race he receiving no less than 93 votes on the first ballot. Since 1883 or. Edmunds has been with senator Hoar the hell Wethers of the Republican flock and has been the Champion of a Host of important measures among which was the act of 1886 prescribing the manner in which electoral votes for the president should be counted. He was also the Leader of the famous Republican crusade against president Cleveland to compel him to furnish the Senate with All documents necessary to show cause for removal from office. In the last exciting term of Congress or. Edmunds was conspicuous for his firm stand against the Silver Bill As he was Ever known to be a firm defender of honest Money. In the memorable contest Over the Force Bill he occupied a Neutral position. Sherman a last term too. Story revived by the resignation of Edmunds. New York april 9, times Washington special says the resignation of or. Edmunds revives again the Story reported As coming from or. Sherman himself that that gentleman will not he again a candidate for the sedate. According to Tho account of a personal Friend of or. Sherman he has a great aversion to remaining in the Senate one minute longer than he is qualified in All respects to discharge Tho duties of the office. He has told a Friend that he is aware that no oho is Ever so unlit to decide when a Public Man is waning As the Man himself. If he stays a Day longer than his prime his ability to decide when he must go becomes constantly less. Or. Sherman is determined not a Man shall Ever be Able to say that he is Quot lagging superfluous. And that he does not know enough to drop the Western elections.

The people of that City Are protesting Iii Public meetings against a negro postmaster.

The objection to me is simply on account of my color. But in a going Over to so about making my Bond. I w As appointed postmaster of Vicksburg during Tho Hayes administration but the people never kicked then like they do now.

Those resolutions say in a not a citizen of the town hut i always vote there and claim it As my Home even though i have a residence Iii Jackson which i bought for my invalid Hill is very much disturbed Over the action of the people of Vicksburg.

Senator of the Republican National committee says that the committee will probably meet in Washington in november next to Issue the Call for the next Republican National convention and that to avoid the hot weather the convention will probably be called for late in april or Early in May. John Sherman is once More a presidential candidate. He does not think Mckinley can got the Ohio delegation to the next National convention and he thinks he himself can.

There was too much Freedom of speech about it. However for people who had reason to dread an outspoken press and after being imprisoned 60 Days for libel he gave his journalism up and went Back to business. His old Luck seemed to Havo left him and Bis Fortune was considerably reduced when in 1834, lie removed to new York.

Alien this discussion had fully prepared the Public mind another appeared mentioning that the Long mooted question could now to easily settled As a gentleman had just come from the Fiji islands with a specimen. He had stopped at the Pacific hotel but would soon sail for London As Tho specimen was intended for the Royal society. Next Day the papers stated that a the gentleman would exhibit the Mermaid at a room in Broadway for a few Days in order to afford men of science an Opportunity of examination. Then came Tho announcement that Barnum with Ilia usual Enterprise had secured the wonderful object which could be seen for a Short Timo at the museum where indeed it had been during All this adroit manipulation of Public opinion. It was a horrid looking dried up thing on which All gazed with admiration for the monkeys head and fishes body were so neatly joined that they really seemed oho. While Barnum stood there answering questions on the habits of the animal a Man in the crowd exclaimed Quot i lived two years a the Fiji islands and never heard of any such thing As a Quot there a no accounting for some menus ignorance a was bar Mun a Cool reply and to proceeded with his talk Iii 1842 lie first heard of Charles Stratton Quot Gen. Tom thumb a then less than 2 feet High and weighing Only 16 pounds and his world wide Fame began. With the marvellous Dwarf lie travelled All Over the United states and Europe presenting him to Queen Victoria and Oiler Quot crowned Heads and piling up the proceeds. Rather an important episode in barn unit a life is thus related Iii his own words Quot i drank a Good Deal up to the year 1847. I have allowed anybody to Tell my so. Hut when i look Back Over that time i know now that i did. When i built my magnificent Oriental country seat Iraq Stan i was proud of the House but to times prouder of my wine Collar than of anything Che i had. Quot every Day at dinner i took my bottle of Champagne or its equivalent in other wines or malt liquors. I did no business after noon and my Mother in Law used to say sometimes that i was a Heady after dinner. I drank Only wine and i bought my after dinner feelings were due to overeating rallies than drinking. Quot but i got the Rev. Or. Chapin to come up to Bridgeport and deliver a Temperance lecture for the subject of which lie took a the moderate Drinker a and i saw myself in quite anew Light. A Tho next morning i had my Coachman Knock the necks on All the Champagne bottles had Iii my cellar Somo five or six dozen the port and other medicinal wines i gave away Iii Caso of sickness and the liquors i returned to the dealers. That was Tho end of Aly . Quot As Young bumblebees Are biggest w Hen they Are first hatched so i was in the first heat of my conversion an enthusiast on the subject of Teeto Taoism. I went All Over Connecticut and new York delivering free lecture. On the subject and even went to Wisconsin stumped the state at in own expense and at. Least helped to carry it on a Temperance while abroad or. Barnum heard of Jenny Lind and after a Long series of negotiations finally concluded an engagement with her to sing in America for 15o nights at $1000 night. Only 95 concerts were Given but Tho profits of her Tom were $610,000, of which the Singer received $302,000. The Way in which this tour was advertised was a conspicuous instance of another Barnum method. The proceeds of the first concert were Given to the fire department. The next was devoted to another deserving object. New York had never seen such gifts and All the Christian Public went to see and hear the melodious Angel. The excitement increased to such a degree that tickets sold at an unheard of Premium. Genin the Hatter hid off the first ticket at $625. Which proved a capital advertisement hut Many were sold at $25 to $30, and at tins rate it was easy to take in to $12,000 per night. Tile Quot Angel of Beneficence artifice was neatly performed and after the juror had been accomplished Tho donations slopped. Begging letters by the Bushel were sent in but were destroyed and the Public Learned at last that it was Only a first class advertisement. In 1855, after Tho most phenomenal even of american careers. Or. Barnum retired to Iran Stan the Oriental Villa which he had built at Bridgeport Iii 1846. He expended Large sums in improving the City made Miles of streets. Planted Glioma incl of Trees and started to encourage the establishment of factories. In 1866 and 1857 the Jerome clock company so impressed him with its solvency and wealth and Bright prospects of Success that Jio endorsed their notes for nearly $1,000,000, the company went into bankruptcy. Wiping out the Mermaid Money the Jenny find Money and leaving Barnum deeply in debt. He had settled a Small Fortune. However upon his wife and she helped him regain his feet to was bitterly annoyed by some of his creditors. They had him arrested and examined under oath Quot before the when asked what lie did for a living he replied. Quot i keep a when Tho further Quer it was made Quot what Are your resources who replied. A my friends in Bridgeport Sond Moabon of provisions every Ile started off for England again with his Little Mascot Tom thumb worked Tho Quot Crow Ned Heads of euro pop for world wide advertising purposes opened the old bar numbs museum at the Corner of Broadway and Ann fits., and with his own earnings and lits wife a assistance soon raised his head above Tho Waters. He paid every debt even the most technical to Tho last Dollar and no Man can say he lost anything by p. T. Barnum. This was Tho transition period. Barnum i finkas Taylor Barnum. Up to the time Tho clock company swamped him had been widely known hut his Fame was nothing to that which came afterwards. He kept on reforming too. Here is How he came to quit snick ing Quot Ono Day Iii i860, on my Way Down to the museum i Felt a stingo choking sensation away Down in my Throat and then a throbbing or palpitation of my heart. I had noticed it a Little for a year before but paid no particular attention to it until then. Quot i asked my manager Greenwood what it was and to said it was heart disease and the symptoms i described As mine meant death. That scared me pretty badly. Quot i determined to give up business at once retire to the country and prepare to die. Hut before doing so consulted or. Willard Barker. He examined me and said a you May have a very hard heart for All i know but you have As Strong a one As there is in new York. Nicotine is All that is the matter with you. Stop smoking. Quot i did so at once. I was so scared i never smoked again. For a year however i used to carry bits of Calamus in my pocket to Chew 011 when i wanted to smoke. Well his old museum w As burned Down in july 1865. He opened another and that burned Down. By his own account More than $1,000,000 of his property first and last went up in flame Ann smoke and about the Only thing that could Scaro the old showman was a fire. Iii the Spring of 1871 he established a Pleat travelling museum and menagerie introducing rare Oque Strien and athletic performances which after the addition of a representation of the ancient roman hippodrome races the great elephant jumbo and other novelties he christened Quot a. T. Bar numbs greatest show on he issued yearly Quot proclamations a Anil from the earliest twitter of Spring the fences glowed with in Arimms a War cry striking failure to the pockets of would be rivals and charming the juvenile mind with anticipation. Everywhere the traveller could read in Yard Long letters Quot wait for me Barnum is coming wait for me greatest show on Earth a they waited and they went. Even the College professors went to seek on the a cushioned Quot circus boards a realistic impression of the classic Chariot race naturalists came to in the collections and the animals and Tho Quot talking machine and other marvels made annual wonder. For or. Barnum politics we turn again to his own statements for authority a i was a Gen. Jackson Man. I met Tho old general in new Haven and visited him at the Hermitage and was a Democrat from my first vote until and including poor Bierce a administration. When they used Tho directories of Eastern cities to make lists of voters to carry slavery into Kansas. I said a i Ara still a Democrat Haven to a drop of blood in my veins that is not democratic and if i had would open them to let it out but that is not. Democratic and i can to stand and i went Over to the republicans and have been with them nominally at least Ever since. Quot i am no Sot politician however and when Greeley was nominated i worked for him As enthusiastically As anybody Dilt. Quot although i Havo been As a Republican elected four times to Tho legislature and once to Tho mayoralty of Bridgeport i Ain rather a Passivo than an Active politician and have been supported by democrats As Well As republicans on each occasion of my candidacy. Quot i became an Odd fellow in new York in 1843, and when i came out As a Teet taller joined Tho real bites Good templars and sons of Temperance. These Are All i Ever was connected in his Best Days Barnum was a Man of remarkably Fine presence. To was nearly 6 foot amt Well proportioned with a face which combined Power and Good humor. To was one of those men who would he selected out of a crowd Iii any Case of emergency and his faculties were such As to ensure Success in any one of the leading specialities of life. He married Early and found his wife an efficient Hel meet t through All his Early troubles but her health failed under life a burdens and Che died in 1873. The fruit of this Union was Throe daughters allot whom Are married. In 1874 to married miss fish daughter of a manufacturer in Lancashire eng. His a a cond wife was fully 40 years his Junior hut was most cordially welcomed by the family when she came to brighten by the Way that residence has a history. It was christened by Bayard Taylor the poet of travellers and its hospitality has warmed such guests Horace Greeley Tho Cary Sisters t. De Witt Talmage Matthew Arnold Gen. Custer Kate Field Mark Twain or. And mrs. Frank Leslie Archibald Forbes Joel Benton Thomas Bali the sculptor Baron and Baroness Salvador and Tim author of Quot America a or. Samuel Francis Smith. But the new mistress longed for a smaller House of greater convenience and Comfort and it was built after her own plans occupied Over a year ago Ami pleased both the great owner and his fair wife More As they grew to know its charms. Quot Marina it is called. It is built on the site of Quot Waldemere a a High Bluff from which there is an unobstructed View across 18 Miles of Salt water of the faint coast line of Long Island. The House is of Rod Brick and Stone Over which English ivies grow abundantly while Tho Broad piazzas Are draped Aud shaded by Beautiful vines of honeysuckle. Co chant Stone Lions guard the Entrance rho effect of Tho exterior of the House is one rather of older than of recent building am this effect is More than maintained by its Interior. As was said above Barnum had three daughters but no sons. One married d. W. Thompson a custom House officer they have one child a girl. Another married s. Ii. Hard a financier Aud they have had three children of whom two daughters Are living. The third daughter married Nathan Seeley and left three children two sons and a daughter. The show business is under a contract to go on forever and in b. place will to b. T. Barnum Seeley the grandson and a typical representative he is of the one and Only. Now she wears a Belt. Belts Are an important item of the fashionable toilet this season. Soft leather velvet Canvas passement Erie and Gold and Silver f to employed in the different varieties. There Are Swiss belts with deep Points in the front and Cleopatra girdles failing Low Down on the hips. There Are Russia leather bands clasped with the owner s Monogram in Silver slender flexible Chain belts of Gold and perhaps dainties than All the others narrow Black velvet belts accentuating the slenderness of the Waist and clasped with rhinestones buckles or Renaissance Hooks of old for boys. Boston merchants counsel Young that boys and girls should become self supporting men not made in schools hard work. What shall to done with the boys and girls that is Tho question. An article in last weeks . In answer to this query which gravely concerns so Many fathers and mothers so Many boys and girls contained the assurances from Anonymous but highly competent sources that there Aro openings in the business world for everybody who has ability that for a Businesslike special business training is necessary that this should to begun at an Early ago that a Gram in Ai school education is sufficient preliminary learning for boys and girls who Aro going to become business men and women that the great majority of boys and girls need to become self supporting at As Early an age As possible that therefore Tho boys and girls who Are put to work As soon As they have completed the course of study in the grammar schools Aro not Only not handicapped by these circumstances but on the contrary Aro under just the training let est calculated to make of them Superior business men and women. To see How far general practice sustains these theories leading business men of Boston men whose names have Long been household word throughout new England have been asked to Tell the sunday Globe readers what their experience with men and women in their employ and their varied dealings with the people engaged in business Bas proved whether in Short their employees Aro most valuable to them who began their business life with a grammar school education or those of More advanced schooling those who Havo evolved Correct theories of business from practice begun at an Early age or those who began with a few years More Hook learning and have in consequence a few years less business experience. Or. Ellen i it. Jordan senior member of Tho firm of Jordan Marsh amp co., was the first gentleman seen. Or. Jordan talked freely upon the subject which he considers a most important one. Quot for a boy or girl to step into business at 19 or 20 years of age a said or. Jordan Quot is As if they elected to study fractions before learning to add and subtract or like a sailors getting through the Cabin window in his search for a position instead of working up to it by loading the ropes. A boy of 19 is too big to begin at the lowest round with the smallest wages which is All he is Worth his head is too full of other things for him to find a place for the routine of a business beginning where he should begin. The most successful men in Boston today Are those who began at the beginning and know Bow everything in their business is done. I must say too. That boys going into business nowadays do not have to work As they did when i was a boy. In those Days we were expected to build Tho fire and get the sweeping done before breakfast and now it is hard work for the clerks to be in their places by 8 of clock. I have tried All kinds boys and girls from tile grammar schools Tho High schools and special schools old and Young and the most useful people to us and those w to Are most useful to themselves Are those who come to us with a grammar school education and grow up with Tho business. And by grammar school i mean the Public school. Public school scholars Are what we want. Not boys and girls from the private training schools which Aro so often hospitals Tor feeble intellects. A i believe the question that confronts everybody a what Are you going to do should be asked at Tho age of 14 years. If Tho boy or girl is going to necome a lawyer or a doctor or a minister then let his or her education from that time on tend in that general direction which will make necessary a University education. If the boy is to become a Mechanic or a landscape Painter then he should Loso Little time in devoting himself to pursuing the line of study that will Best fit him to succeed As a Mechanic or As a landscape Painter. If the boy or girl is going to become a business Man or woman and attain Success then they should begin say at the age of 14. When they come from the grammar schools to study with that aim in View and there is no place where the details of a business can be Learned As they can be from the business itself. Quot the great majority of boys and girls need to Lecome self support Ina at a very Early age. Of they begin at 14 to acquire the training that will fit them to do this by the time they Aro 21 they will be Independent anywhere then that they May Chance to lie they will have a Market value be Worth something to the great world and something to themselves. Keep a boy at school until he is 19. And he is practically unfitted to learn a business. Now Aud then Ono catches on so to speak hut As a Rule boys of 21 Are too old to begin at Tho Bottom oven if they would and they Are not Worth anything any higher up. A the trouble with so Many who apply Tous for positions is that they do not know anything. They Are old enough to to Able to Tako care of themselves and have studied enough but they can to apply what they have Learned it has no Market value. Quot but this question of what they Aro going to do is far More important for to or is to ask themselves than it is Tor boys now that women Are taking such a prominent position in the business world filling so Many places formerly held exclusively by men. Quot As a said or. Jordan Quot girls Are smarter than boys. At 18 years of age they Are brighter and More intelligent at least better Able to make use of their intelligence than boys of the same age it is not so hard for girls to adapt themselves to business when they have reached the ago of 18 or 19 As it is Tor boys to do so but in the great majority of oases both boys and girls if they Are Ever going to amount to anything should set about it when they Are Young grounding themselves if they Aro going into business in the principles of that business. Tile trouble now in the world is that there Are too Many drones too Many bees who can to gather any Honey because they do not know How. Quot keep this question of a what Are you going to do going. Everybody should have a calling and boys and girls who Are going into business should set about it w Hen they come out of Tho grammar air. Is. In. Dutton. Of the firm of Houghton amp Dutton in whose Large establishment the majority of the sales people Are women testifies on the Side of the value of a thorough business training which begins at the foundation. Said or Dutton Quot some of the Best clerks we have began As Cash girls. If Young people of either sex who go to work upon finishing the grammar school course Havo ambition and Are Well and Strong there is no reason Why they cannot secure every advantage. Ambition is a valuable Factor in mercantile life. Integrity reliability truthfulness these qualities and Talent Are necessary to Success and if a boy or girl has these a grammar school education is foundation enough for any business. Without these qualities no amount of schooling is going to be of much Benefit to it is a Good plan to go into business Early. I believe though girls Are less Likely than boys to be unfitted for a mercantile life by remaining at school a few years longer. The reason is that girls Are quicker to learn when they once go to w Ork. Quot As Tor Tho bookkeepers we find a practical training better than a theoretical one. Our head bookkeepers have All Learod their business step by step with us Aud if this can be done it is always preferable. If this cannot he done a commercial College training is certainly air. James 6. Loomis of the Continental clothing company said Quot there is something to be urged on both sides of the argument that a business training should begin at an Early age. Quot everything depends upon the boy. If a is ambitious and determined to succeed he will be pretty Apt to do so at whatever age he begins his business life. But in the Caso of Tho average boy. He is mentally better developed physically stronger and is every w a better equipped to become a successful business Man when he comes from the High school than when he gets through the Gram Niar school. Quot some of our brightest men however began Only with grammar school cancan tons and it is certainly desirable that a by iness training should be thorough but it a boy can have a few years More of school Lite a few years More in which to build up Bis body Ami brain to is going to take hold All the Netter when he once gets to work because both body and brain Are then Dew Tereau pred. Of two boys of equal intern Gynce Iii the beginning the one wha conies to us at 19, if be has made Good use of his years in school is Worth More to us by considerable even for Tho first year than a boy who begins at the age of 14,which goof to prove that a Fuller education instead of unfitting him makes a i it of titter for i still the boy who is forced by circumstances to begin work at the age of 14 can succeed if lie will As the Success of so Many men who have done that very thing proves., a a a was for the value of commercial College training w Hile a bookkeeper who grows up with the House is the most valuable to us because lie knows every in and out of the business if we were obliged to put a new bookkeeper at once in charge of the books and no one was ready to be moved up. We should Tako a Man who bad a first class theoretical commercial training of course. It is not always possible to wait for someone to grow up to a or. Henry Norwell of Tho firm of Shepard amp Norwell says Quot business men Are not made in schools if a boy or girl is going into business a grammar school education is All that is needed. Anil sending them to school for three or for years More Only gives them a Little More look knowledge and leaves them less fitted to grasp the rudiments of business. We cannot teach a Young Man 21 year old. The silk business for example. He is too old to learn. For our business we prefer to take boys of 14 rather than boys of 19 they make l Etter salesmen bettor men in every Way. They grow up with the Plant Ana know it Root and Branch. This is what the successful Man must air. It. Ii. White senior member of the firm of r. H. White a co., said his opinion in a nutshell was thai the answer depended upon the boys and girls in question. Quot if a boy or girl has ability it does no to matter when he or she begins to work so far As Success is concerned. They Are bound to get it. If they have no ability that settles it More schooling or less does not make any or. W. N. Nutter favors giving boys and girls who Are going into business a business education adding it to a grammar school education. Said or. Butler Quot All our present buyers come in a boys with common school educations. In every instance i believe it gives better re suits for both boys Aud girls to begin on the lower round of the business ladder before they reach the age of maturity than Tot them to begin hallway up. Quot you often hear of a business going to pieces in the hands of a Man who inherits it simply because he has not had the experience his father perhaps had before Nim and cannot hold what is put ready made into his hands. Quot with the advantages that Are open today to every boy and girl flier is nothing to prevent any one getting a Liberal education outside of schools. But no one can got a Liberal business education outside of Motsi Ness and in order to get it at All he needs to begin or. Ass p. Potter president of the Maverick National Bank and speaking from a banker a standpoint said a advise every boy and girl to get a Liberal education As a foundation for life in whatever department even in the Case of families in straitened Means where it is an Effort to keep the children in school it is Wiser to do this. An English school education is the Best Start in life a boy can have no matter what he is going to do. He is certainly far better prepared to take care of himself and As is his parents who have perhaps been making sacrifices to keep him at school than boys can be who go to work at the age of 14.&Quot the experience of or. In a. Atkinson is common to Many employers. Quot it matters Little a says or. Atkinson Quot whether a Bov has a grammar school or a High school education to begin business with. If he is a smart boy. The use he has made of his time at school the thoroughness with which he has Learned what lie has studied Are what count. Any grammar school education should fit a boy for a mercantile life. But the truth is that the common branches of Reading writing and arithmetic and Correct speech Are so imperfectly Learned by most children they have not the knowledge at their fingers and tongues ends As they should have when they go out into the world and go into business. Quot of the common English branches ars thoroughly instilled the boy from the grammar school can get on and make Ood headway. Lasts of our smartest men Lave done it. But it is a question in my mind whether if these same smart men had started with a High school education they would not have got on faster and better an Able ambitious boy from the grammar school has much in his favor but i am no prepared to say that he would not do Battel of he got a Highfi school education. Quot there cannot be two opinions however As to the desirability of beginning a business life Early and learning it from the Root up but the average age of a High school graduate is still Young. What we do need is thoroughness in education whether it be of one school or another ability at will promptly and correctly to put ones knowledge to use. Quot there is room for All to succeed boys and girls and if they Are ambitious they can work their Way up. Quot i believe tile More they know and know thoroughly Tho More valuable they Are to themselves and to others and Tho ambitious boy and girl Wilt do Well to supplement their grammar school learning by going to the night Quot Little Lieut. Greely a humor during a most harrowing hour. A Story of the Greely expedition which May have been in print at Tho time but is Worth repeating was told at a dinner one evening lately by a naval officer to whom Hie occurrence was a personal reminiscence. Says the times. He accompanied the boar in its Mission of Rescue and happened to be one of the party that actually found the Small band. It is history that the moment was a desperate one for Hie Greely men. The last drop of liquor had Boen poured Down Tho Throat of one of them who seemed to to dying and about at the end of Hope and resources and weak with hunger and suffering the Little company was settling into the stupefaction of overwhelming misery when the rescuers suddenly appeared. Once More they were in the world at such a time a Man is Apt to conceal his emotions and the tragic meeting was accomplished with a simplicity that in itself was tragic. A cheerful Quot Halloo old Man a from the rescuers and a Grunt or two from such of the survivors As were Able to Grunt even. And it was Over. X then followed the attempt to get the poor Fellows in condition to be moved to Tho ship. Nourishing food and drink was Given to them and they were cheered by talk of Home and friends and the latest news. Bat the process was slow at first. Chief Engineer John Low seated himself by Lieut. Greely who Gamut with starvation and wild eyed with late despair seemed to take Little heed of him. Quot Well colonel a he said finally after Sev. Eral apparently ineffectual efforts to arouse the still dazed officer Quot there a one Little woman will be glad of this Day s Greely raised his eyes then dropped them again half sullenly. Quot Little woman a he repeated with a sort of a growl Quot she weighs a Hundred and sixty if she weighs a and then or. Low knew he would come around All right. England a future Queen. The future Queen of England is a talented woman in various ways. Her statue in her full Robes of doctor of music which title she bears is being now chiselled by a princely relative and her Success As an Amateur photographer is most pronounced.
