bomo capacity which shall be useful to
Uncle Sam nnd helpful to his own in-
tcicsts as well. Thu particular place he
picked out was llio supcrlntcndoncy of
Arlington. Ilo seems, however, to be
built 'on the same plan as Piesldcnt
Jackson's lrlcnd and admirer, who
started out with wanting tho mission to
England and ended with accepting a
second-band black frock coat.
Mr. Sawyer's man, ilnding he couldn't
be superintendent at Arlington, offered
nt last to accept a place as engineer of a
lawn mower or foreman of a pick and
shovel. Mr. Sawyer not 'getting tho
place quite as quickly as his constituent
thought be should, the constituent kept
up a constnut bombaidmcnt of letters
nnd impoitunato appeals. Finally,
after ho had received about nineteen
such epistles, he gicw weary and sent
n beautifully clear and plain typo-wiit-ten
letter to the applicant, in which lie
used woids to tho following effect:
"I have seen tho Secretary of Wiir In ref

The topic of inteicst litis morning is
the new code. Tho point is: How
much discussion will be allowed? Thu
llepubllcans say that Ihoy will petinll

noiily would bu allowed to discuss thu

Major McKitiley and Jou Cannon held

Cntiio appioHched tho distinguished
innjoiity of the Commltteo on ltulus
nnd was assured by them that no unfair
advantage would bo taken of their on
ponents. Tho vote will bo taken on
Wednesday evening or Thursday after
noon. Tills is positive, though tlio
Democrats fear the vote will ho crowded
to-ir.onow. However, there need bono
fear of this.
Sometime later Major McKlnloy,
speaking for llio Committee on Itulcs,
announced that there shall bu allowed
thicc days for tlebato on tlio new code.
Ho and llio innjoiity hold that this Is
sufficient. This will enable the taking
of the voto on Wednesday afternoon,
unless some Republicans insist on dis
cussing tlio matter at length.
It was found impossible, however, to
como to an agreement. Ex-Speaker
Cm lisle said his bide could not agree to
the limit of days. The discussion is

A stalwait young butcher's apprentice
walked into'the Chicago Hemhl's local
loom the other evening, inquired for
tlic city editor and announced himself
as President Harrison. Thcro was a
slight glitter iu ills oyes, but his face
was expressionless and tho features al
most rigid. Taking two carrots from
his o ercoal he handed one to his host
and put the other, small end foremost,
between his lips, just as a man would do
with a cigar. Taking a box of matches
from his pocket, he lighted one and pre
tended to light Ills cat tot. Almost im
mediately ho relapsed into a trance,
still standing as ho was before, and his
let t aim gi initially lose until it was at
light angles nnd tlicru icmnincd.
Tliis condition lasted for over llvo

sliuctcd to do exactly as ho did.
At tho expiiatiou of llvo and a half
minutes, which wns the timo agreed on,
tlio hypnotic tranco stato continued, but
llio a'lm sank to tho sldo, tliu patient
seemed less rigid in his muscles, and

for each of llie llvu pieclnets o( llio

of tho Legislature lu relation to mu

caused some little confusion over Its ap

Tho now law provides fm thicucottn
cilnien nnd one justice of the peace to
be elected in each pieclnct. The Fed
eral Court heie, previous to the Ogdcn
election a year ago, decided Hint tho
election should bu conducted under llio
old law, but one of the courts
hns decided that it must be
conducted under certain provis
ions of the now law, and it is not
unlikely that litigation will follow thu
election, no matter which ticket wins.

L'mpeioi William pioposes to make to
the Socialistic and labor ele
ments iu Geimany havo at
tracted wide attention and much
interest among the German-boin resi
dents of this city. A CiiiTic repoitcr
called upon a number of them this
morning to tisccitnin their views on
this subject, and found a general con
census of opinion that the ICalscr is
sincere in his desire to do something to
better the position of the classes named.
Mr. Paul fehultzo. the well-known
nichitect, said "Since the Dmperor
made his now celcbiated speech I havo
been busy about other matters nnd have
had very liltlotlmc to give it much con
sideration, but I am ot opinion that if
he succeeds in what he pioposes lie will
havo mado his maik as a wisu and lib
crnl l tiler. 1 think there is no
doubt as to bis being in earnest
about the matter, but perhaps he
may havo been too abrupt iu tho manner
of stating his views and thu pcoplumay
not be ready for such a radical move as
he piopoes. Fiom what I can lemu he
is a man of great foicc of character.
That alone, ol course, is not all that is
lo be desired, and if ho weio a little
more experienced in politics it would do
.Mr. John Wnldmnn said. "1 have
no reason to think tlio Dmpcror is not
in earnest in his desire to make some
conccssiens to tliu Socialistic and labor
elements in Germany, for ho hits senso
i hough to sco tlmt lie will be forced to
do so, nnd thinks it best to accept thu
inevltablu with a good grace. Social
ism is spreading in eteiy diiection,
even in the nimv, and if some conces
sions are not mndc there will bo a revo
lution." Mr. Charles risclier thought it was
almost too soon yet to express au opin
ion ns to the outcome of tho Dmperor's
recommendations, but he believed him
to bo in earnest, for tlio present Kaiser
had always been inclined to bo liberal
in his view s. It was certain that some
thing must be done in the near future to
better the condition of the laboring
classes of Gci many, and ho gave tho
I'lmpcror credit lor sinceilty in the
move ho is making in their behalf.
"I really have not had time," said
Hon. Sinon Wolf, "to think much
about Ihimattcr at all, and know noth
ing beyond what I havo scon In tho
published cablegrams. Judging, how
ever, fiom suifnco indications I
should say that the Ihnpeior Wil
Ham is really inclined to be
lenient and liberal to tho Socialist
element. Ho Isonoof the using gen
cintion, and sees plainly that lie and
tlic other uileis of Kuropo arc standing
on a mine which may explodo at auy
moment. Ho therefore doubtless thinks
it good policy to tako such action to In

timo when a conflict with other nations
may bu precipitated nt any moment."
Albert Lciipcr said' "The Dmpeior

There is , temporary lull Iu thu slotni
of Indignation which swept through llio
ranks of the plate printers at the Ilurcau
of lmgiavlng and Printing last week
ou account of the appointment of n col
oicd gill ns an ussMnnt to a plate
printer. There Is ns much feeling oer
llio matter as thcro over was, but il is
pent-up foi the present.
"There is no chntigu lu tho status of
tlic case," said Captain .Meredith, chief
of the llutcau. "She will bo assigned
lo nuothcr printer, and if hu refuses to
woik wllh her, lie will meet the
same fate as the other man who ro
fused bu discliaigcd. She was
sent hereby the Civil Scrvico Commis
sion as a printer's assistant, and I
assigned her to duty. Tho law
allows mu no nltci native. 1 can do
nothing but assign her to duty, and,
when n man refuses to work with her, I
must discharge him."
That is all Captain Meredith would
say about the matter. Tho gill,
l'innkio Flood, is woiking for the pres
ent as it inecscntrcr.Sho hns been assigned
to duty as assistant to l'latc-l'rinter Levy
who is sick, w ncn no returns to
woik his assistant will bu Introduced
to him. What his action will bu In
tlilsciisis is not known. To rcfusoto
take hci will be to get his discharge.
Tliu plale printers claim the agi
tation is not over a matter "of
color. They sa3- a principle is
involved Ihe principle of Ihu
Civil Service Commission requiring
tlicm to havo an assistant, to pay this
assistant out of their own wages, to
bu responsible for that assistant's
errors, but et bne no voice
in thu appointment of tlio as
sistant. They say it is unfortunate that
a test of tlic principle should bu mado
in tho case of a coloicd girl.
The innocent cause of all this ttouhlo
was promptly at tlic ISuicau when
"lime" was called Ibis morning, mid was
put to woik ns a messenger until her
printer comes back to duty Shu
