among the club women of ttic upper

that all accounts of the reception must

The popular notion of tho "Ladios'

of collecting about in groups around a

voto their time to tho formation of

whatever is worth hearing. Gossip is
not forbidden by nny of tho rules, and
perhaps this form of cntertalnmont will

by the notoriety his brother-in-law, tho

some slight hope Is felt that there Is yet

It's rather early Jo speculate on what
'92 will bring forth In tho shape of can
didates for tho Presidential nomination,
but, nevertheless, just ntthtstlmo thero
appears to bo considerable lntorcst taken
In the matter, and tho relative merits of
Cleveland and Hill nro being discussed
by tho Democratic statesmen with groat
vigor. Itisaifnct-woll known thatccrtalu
papers In New York Btato and In ono
or two Southern cities havo from timo
to tlmo printed Strong editorials with a
decided Hill flavor and they havo more
than onco Intimated that ho Is to bo tho
Democratic Moses lu '02. And fur
thermore, Governor IIIU is rcgardt.d
by the country as an avowed
candidate for tho Presidency. Gover
nor Hill is without doubt' ono of tho
keenest and sharpest politicians in tho
Stato of New ork, and at tho some
tlmo ho Is' a mun of more than ordinary
ability. Ills. friends claim that ho Is a
second Fernando Wood, and Hint at
tlio pippcr .moment ho yjll qomo for
ward with such a following that noth
ing will prevent ids nomination. Dut
jiist at this writing it will bo, noted by
the Interviews that follow that
Hill stands no chanco ns com
pared to Cleveland ns tho
choice of the Democratic party. While
It admitted that New York will furnish
tho candidate and tlicro nro three
prominent names with which tho coun
try is famlllnr, Cleveland. Hill and
Whitney tho fact must not be. over
looked that Governor Campbell of Ohio
and Governor, Abbett of Now.J.or.scy nro
considered as excellent Presidential
timber, and ns ex-Presldcnt Cleveland
said in an interview tho other day,
"men possessing leadership develop
To nsccrtaln the feeling toward Hill,
a CitiTicicportcr this morning sought
out the prominent Democratic mornbcis
and interrogated them on the subject of
the New York Governor's chances for
'92. In nearly every instanco the reply
was that Cleveland was the choice of the
party, and that just now everything
pointed to his nomination.
ltoprcscntatlvo Blount of Georgia,
who is thoroughly posted on all matters
political, in response to the question:
"What do you think of IIIU for '92?"
"Theiclsa possibility for Hill just
ai there Is for anybody else, but there
is only ono fccllug In Georgia and that
Is Cleveland. A dozen men may write
and print articles about Hill and create
n little enthusiasm for him, while a
million men icmalu silent. As far as I
am able to judge there Is no Hill party
in my State. The reason tiro peoplo
nre not for Hill is because thoy arc for
Cleveland and the sentiment for Cleve
land is giowing every hour."
Repiescntntivo Dockcry of Missouri
said: "Hill is a possibility, but not a
piobabllity. The sentiment in Missouri
just now is for Cleveland, and I beiievc
it is so all over tho country. As tariff
lcfoun will be the issue in '92, it would
bo perfect folly to mako it without
Cleveland as the standard-bonier. If
Cleveland Is nominated tho platform
will be unimportant, as ho would bo a
platform In himself."
Ucprcsenlntive Shicly of Indiana
said that, in his opinion, Hill's chances
for '92 were extremely slender. As far
las ho was able to judge, tho sentiment
,and the great icserved strength was for
'Cleveland. "Or course," said he, "Hill
has a few friends In tlio Stato and a
rather prominent Democratic paper has
'occasionally given him n boom.
Representative Davidson of Florida
said that at picsont Hill did not stand
veiy prominent In the State for the
'Presidency. "Tho subject." s.dd
Colonel Davidson, "hasn't boon
brought beforo tho peoplo yet, but, in
my opinion, the sentiment just uow Is
for Cleveland. The peoplo of Florida
have a good opinion of Hill and feel
(kindly towaid him."
as a ruio tlio Jvew York Congress
men were not inclined to give an opin
ion. They thought It was too early to
discuss the subject. Representative
Stablnccker of tho Yonkers district,
who understands the situation in tho
Empire State, gave Tin: Chitic arather
diplomatic reply, as follows: ''I think
It too early as yet to make pre
dictions nbout Presidential iiomina
tions. In my district thoy haven't
commenced to think of the subject as
yet. Now, I will ,snv this much, that
when Now York comes to make up her
mind as to whom she will support for
the nomination, shu will como forward
iwfth her seventy-two votos aud cast
them as a unit, and there's no doubt
(about New York furnishing the candi
date." TllNAh VNTI-HII.L.
Tho fi cling lu Texas is decidedly
anti-Hill, if Representative C B. Ivil
goro ha given a correct report of tho
Situation. Colonel Kllgorc, who Is
jcnllcd llio "Texan watch-dog of the
Treasury," made this characteristic
i-cply to the reporter's question: "Texas
,1s for Cleveland against the world, tho
flesh and the devil. In my judgment
the people of Texas would not be for
llill, even if they couldn't get Cleve
land." "Don't j on thiuk there's a possibility
of Hill capturing the nomination?"
"1 dou't think there's tho slighest pos
sibility, and If by accident Hill should bo
nominated it would bo the worst blun
der the party could bo guilty of. And
with all tho party's faculties for mak
ing blunders It will not bo apt to blun
der in thatdiiectlon. If however, Hill
should bo tho man, Texas would sup
port him, but bo would bo dofcatcd."
Representative Crisp of Georgia said

Postmaster Van Cott was Immediately
noticed. He, too, wns, in a great stato
of perturbation. Tho package and its
contents vans prima facte evidence that
tho Postmaster General was using the

plnin John Wnnamakor. merchant.
The Treasury regulations declare that
only printed matter can bo imported

In this way, but even that is against the

that the pacuago decided upon was tho
one containing tho ribbons with Mr.
Wnnamakcr's name woven iu them.
"I sent for Mr. Kluge," added Mr.
Phelps, "and he has frankly admitted
thnt Mr. Wannmaker knows nothing ot
this transaction. It is absurd to think
for a moment that a houso of tho mag

importations are made by the dozen

his peoplo In Saxony hit on the Idea for
introducing this new lino of goods Into

name In them. They believed that this
would greatly assist the salo of the
goods. They, according to Mr. Kluge,
didn't reflect that It was a wrong act,

The Aichduko Joseph, commander
of the Hungarian Honvcd Army, hns,
after long and careful association with
and study of the sypsies In Hungary,
been convinced of the Hindustani ori
gin of all gypsies. He supports this
theory by comparing the languages.
Ho sa3's, tor instance, that tho word for
suow, which in Hindustani is liimn, is
in the gypsy language him, nud the
word lor carrier In tho one language
laya, is in the other hi and lem, so that
in both languages Himalaya means the
bearer of snow. Many other instances
of the same sort are given, which It Is
unnecessary to quote, as It is no longer
doubted that the slopes of tho Himalaya
Mountains wero tho homo of all tho
gypsies now iu Europe, whore their first
nppearauco is traced to the year 1 117,
and in America, whither they havo
come from Europe.
Of their religious beliefs the Aich
"The caitli ()hno) lias existed, in
their opinion, from eternity, and is thu
origin of.everything that is good. God
they call ilerel, and the devil they call
ben;. They fear both and curse both,
when tucy arc in bad luck, or In caso
of the death of ono of their number;
and they believe also In ovll spirits,
which can bo chased away by throwing
brandy, or, in default of that, liquor,
water, upon the body or upou the
grave, whenover they reus it. Thoy
swear by their dead, nnd thnt Is their
n-ost solemn oath, which Is rigorously
kept in honor; they do not, however,
believe iu n Uti; after death. Their
language has no word for paradise and
none for heaven, but the home of the
devil (beng-ipe) they know."
Tho gypsies aro generally held up as
bad examples of superstition, witch
craft and similar failings, In this
respect, the Archduke says, they arc
wronged, and, what is worse, thoir ac
cusers themselves nro the superstitious
ones, and the gypsies laugh nt them,
after having fleeced them. Tho Arch
duke asked, for Instance, several gypsy
women to tell him his fortune, which
they readily did. As soon, however,
ns Uonddrcssed them in their own lan
guage, they declared they would not
cheat "one of their own," and, being
explicitly asked whether they believed
in cuds as a means or telling fortunes,
they said luughlngly: "No, that is
good enough tor the non.gypsles."
