Itnsala nml tlio Labor Itororm Move
ment Child Labor Disapproved by
Imperial Council German Catho
lics Hold tlio Jlnlnnce or l'owor,
London, April 24. Altiiougli tlio
Hussion Government for various rea
sons, chiefly bccaiiEo of the peculiar
social nnil economic condition of tlio
country, took no part In tlio labor con
ference recently lichl In Berlin, It is
plain (lint some, at least, of tho ques
tions there discussed have found con
Mdcrntlou in tlio councils of tho
Northern Empire. The action of tho
imperial Council in passing a bill
prohibiting the employment in fac
tories and workshops of children
under 12 years of ago Is n concession to
popular demand and tho dictates Of
Immunity that is most surprising to
thoso familiar with tlio ltussian abhor
rence of Innovations, especially of a
conciliatory character or of anaturo
calculated to lighten tho burdens of the
people. If the bill was passed with a view
of conferring n measure of protection
upon tho youth of tho lower classes
which tbo council slncorely believed
they stood in need of and were entitled
to as nn act of justice, tho imperial
body has not gone far enough.
If, on tho other hand, tlio council In
tended by its act to appeaso tho clamor
ous neitator and calm tho prevailing
revolutionary spirit it has gono too far,
for tho 1 oy nlly of even a ltussian Is not
to bo purchased at a prlco so Insult
ingly Insignificant. But It may bo that
tho' Czar Is following cautiously in tho
wako of ids brother monarch of
Germany in a reorganization of the
labor system of tho country, and if this
bo tho case, as it is hopedi other and
morc.important changes will doubtless
bo made' In tho near future. In any
event,, the pcoplo of Itussla may bo
thankful for tho sllghtbenoflt conferred
upon them by the oltfclal admission that
there are among themr persons of too
tendor ago to be subjected to confine
ment In close workshops and the ex
actions of brutal taskmasters, a fact
which statistics show has not hitherto
been ablo to force Itself upon tho Im
perial mind.
Tho German Catholic party aro slowly
gaining grOund in their efforts tore
cover tho revenues and other benefits
and privileges which they lost through
the Kulturkampf, thanks to their hold
ing tho balance of power, or what is
equivalent to that in tho new Reichstag.
It is confidently predicted by them that
thoywill squeeze out of tho Prussian
government In tho Landtag much more
In the end than they lost as the price of
their support of vital imperial measures
in tho Beichstag, and there are many
among their opponents who bolievothev
are not boasting idly.
UHAHGKS AGAINST' HIDDLElOS,
Alice til I'eculntions Growlnc Out of
the Famous Kelt Campatcn.
Ottawa, Ont., April 21. Tho com
mittee which has been investigating the
charges th'at General Middlcton appro
priated certain furs to his own benefit
during tho Rlel rebellion campaign has
reported that tho General did order the
furs shipped to him, though In fact ho
did not receive them. It was an illegal
confiscation, but the committee lire sat
y. isfied that tho General acted under a
misapprehension of the law. IBs action
was none tho less improper, but in view
of all tho circumstances it is recom
mended that tho General's offer to com
pensate tho half-breed from whom tho
furs were taken be accepted.

THE JintSEY l'OISONING CASK.
Mrs.
, Vnndecrlft's I-uwycr Denies Some
of tlio Ugly Stories Afloat.
Moukt Holly, April 24. About the
only topic of conversation In Mount
Holly and Burlington at present Is the
approaching trial of Mrs. Carrie Vande
grfft, accused of poisoning her son,
Frank Norman. The stories ngalnst her
past history aro still being circulated,
and new ones are apparently maliciously
given; every day. Mrs. Vandegrlft's
counsel, Hon. C. E.-IIendrickson, re
ferring to the ugly stories about her,
said:
"A sentiment of projudico against
Mrs. Vandcgrlft has been worked up so
industriously in the city of Burlington,
her place of residence," said Mr. Hen
drickson, "thnt the local papers are
persuaded in advance of tlio trial to
publish everything that rumor brings
to tho surfaco against her, but not" a
word In her favor. It 'seems to mo that
the Imprisoned woman should bo ac
corded' a fair trial and that public
opinion in tho case, out of deference to
law and justice, should, bo suspended
until the evidence is heard.
"Mrs. Vandcgrlft was raanled'to tho
late Joseph Vandcgrlft In 1878, and
lived happily with him until tho time or
his death in 1880. Since' my client's
arrest a cruel story has been started by
her encmips that Mr. Vandcgrlft died
from croton oil administered by'her.
The story Is false and absurd. There
was no motive whatever for such u
deed. Tho two lived together In har
mony, nnd her husband was always
generous in nis provisions tor ucr ana
defended her ou every occasion. Her
fidelity to him was attested yesterday lu
my presence by one of Burlington's best
and most reputable citizens, who said
ho knew Mrs. Vandcgrlft was faithful
to Uvr husband and kept his accounts,
attended to his hnnk matters and was
his llnancler gcueraliy. and that Mr.
Vnudcerift had tho utmost confidence
in her." As far as the gentleman knew,
being Intimately acquainted In tho fam
ily, they never" had an angry word be
tween them. It Is well Ijnown' that
Joseph Vaudegriftwas In falling health
for years, and had been ill a great deal
pi lor to his death, which was from
natural causes.
"The attempt so assiduously pressed
to show that Frank C. Norman Is not
her on Ishows the malice and evil in
tent of hei enemies. They profess to
bo indignant over tho alleged attempt
upon her son, but at tho same time are
trying to brand this young man with
(ho dlsgraco of illegitimacy by, saying
she bought him when a babe of a
woman on her way to tho nlmshouso
wilh him. He is her son, a9 can
readily bo proved, and was admitted as
Euch to Glrard College, an Institution
most rigidly governed, and where no
une can gain entrance without proof of
legitimacy and of tho respectability of
the parents.
"I am sorry there seems to bo a dis
position In tomo quarters to condemn
Mrs. Vandegrlft on current rumor, and
beforo the trial. I oven heard yester
dav from a farmer that it was reported
crnloii oil hail been pumped from Nor
man's stomach- Of course this Is un
Hue, nnd tho work of some ono more
imaginative than some of his rivals In
creating such stories.

mviKIt.V GAMBLING.
It Hhs Always lloen There, ami
Always Will.
From the Xtntteenth Century.
Gaming is a habit of very old date
along tho Riviera; it might contlnuo If
tho casino at Jlonto Carlo wero razed to
the ground. At Ban Remo games of
chance nro forbidden by law now, yet
tbo lottery, which Is the most demoral
izing of all forms of gambling, is per
mitted there, as In all Italian cities.
Upward of a century ago tho gamo of
chance commonly played at San Remo
was blrlbl. Tho gamo Is chiefly kept In
remembrance by references to It In tho
writings of noted men. For example,
Paul Louis Courier, in onoflf his in"
compnrnblo -pamphlets, twits the fi
nance minister .of his day with playing
blrlbl with thc-financcs. This gamo was
far more unfavorable to tho player than
tho rouletto which is played at Monto
Carlo in these days.
A uiriui tamo contains 70 compart
ments, each compartment being distin
guished by a figure nnd a number.
Sixty-four balls with figures painted
and numbers marked on them are
placed in a bag. Tho player puts his
stake In one of the seventy compart
ments, and if the ball drawn out of tho
bag should correspond to It then he re
ceives 04 times his stake. There aro
04 chances to 1 against a player at
blrlbl receiving anything; at roulette
the chance of his doing so on a number
Is 30 to 1, and no person has yet made
n fortune by playing on numbers at
roulette. Thus tho modern gamo of
roulette ruins a player more slowly
than the older one of biribi.
The game of roulette, or, as it is des
ignated in the statute book, "rolypoly,"
is an ingenious device for Inspiring a
player with the prospect of gain, and
for insuring that the player will con
tribute to maintain the keepers of tho
table. There Is more excitement in
playing at roulette than at trente-et-quaraute,
though the certainty of ulti
mate loss is tho same at cither. Indeed,
the man who systematically speculates
on tho Stock Exchange, wlio bets on the
turf or who games at Monte Carlo, helps
to add to a stock broker's Income in the
first case, to increase a bookmaker's
profits In the second and to pay divi
dends to the shareholders in the Casino
In the third. I assume that in each of
the three cases everything has been done
fairly and in accordance with tho rules
laid down."
This point of view Is not sufficiently
borne in mind. When the wickedness
of gaming is denounced too little heed
Is paid to its unprofitableness, and hu
man beings arc more reluctant to do
that which will not pay than that which
is called sinful. There is a wild delight
in sinning which is not felt in losing
money.
MANN1SU MAIDENS.
Tliey Forcet That Man Desires a Oou-
tritst to Himself,
From Jllackicood's Magazine.
Have we not noticed within the last
few yeare a change In the demeanor of
"society" girls toward tho other sex?
How shall wo define it? A kind of
brusque audaciousness in conversation,
with a soupcon of slangy chaff; an af
fectation of assuming to know moro of
what is what than their mothers and
grandmothers were ever permitted or
supposed to know. Do they not often
go perilously near the border line which
convcnancc prescribes shall not bo over
stepped? wo do not mean this last In
tho sense In which It is alleged, and,
truly , that our ancestresses of the last cen
tury thought it no shame to call a spade
a spade, and when young demoiselles of
sensibility and vivacity used to sigh
over tho misfortunes of Clarissa liar
lowo or divert themselves with tho ad
ventures of Tom Jones and Soghla
Western.
It Is something quite different from
that that the "present raco of young
women affect. It is rather a total want
of sentiment that prevails. In former
days the sex were wont to appeal to
men from their softer, gentler, weaker
side. ' Now it Is tho reverse. They
appear to aim at meeting men on their
own platform, and consorting with
them as like to like from a man's
standpoint rather than from a woman's.
A girl nowadoys will unabashed chaff
her male partner, rallyhlm, amuse him,
in his own coin, Inliis own manner, and
In tho way he would her. This is
what wo understand as tho femalo
mannishncss so' noticeable In tho beau
month of today, and, wo may add, so
unlovely. It is forgotten that what a
man desires in a woman Is contrast not
a caricature of himself.

I'OIlTl'GUKSn AFltlGA,
The Government Nothing Hut the Will
of tho Omcor.
From tin Fortnightly JlecUw.
On ouo of thoso lands, within a day's
journey from Cluilllmn.no, I have seen
encamped as lately as 1881 alargoslavo
caravan n few minutes' walk from the
owner's residence,' waiting to dlsposo of
Its living merchandise over theso Portu
guese estates. To mention that In the
compound of tho house Itself was a
natlvo of tho slave-stick may only be
considered as a superfluous deal. It is
well known that yearly largo caravans
of slaves nro brought from tho lakes
district nnd absorbed into the estates
around Qullllmanc.
Shut out from the gazo of civiliza
tion; colonized by convicts and crimi
nals of tho worst typo; overrun by a
lace, cross-bred between negro slaves
and tbo dregs' of Portuguese jails: oc
cupied by an administration powerless,
no less from poverty than national
apathy, to enforce Its jurisdiction save
by bribery and acquiescence in a sys
tem of slavery and degraded despotism,
it Is not surprising that this vast re
gion should have become burled in
barbarism, its uufortunato peoples
weighed down with tyranny and trade
and commerce dwarfed to Insigniiican't
proportions.
1o clvo an idea of tho nature ot
Portuguese rulo where alone they have
any effective occupation, that is in tho
Delta of the Zambesi, I may say that
tho native soldiers who collect tho
mussoco or poll-tax aro In tho habit of
forcibly dishonoring tho natlvo women
and murdering their husbands or
fathers if they resist or oven expostu
late. In tlio early part of 1880 1 my
self gave medical assistance to a young
native man who had been stabbed
through the body by one of theso Portu
guese soldiers because ho had dared to
expostulate ho had not ventured to
resist when his young wife was
violated by tho soldier. Tho man
lingered for two months In great pain
nnd then died. This case is simply an
cxamplo of what Is-happening every
dnv under Portuguese administration.
, In ono sphcro, tho sphcro of morality,
Portuguese civilization" has made its
mark. During iny six years' experi
ence of consular work in tho Zambesi
regions nothing perhaps has so forcibly
been impressed upon me as one of tho
results of Portuguese influence on tho
natlvo population as tho lamentablo
deterioration of native morality. The
Portuguese on this coast lino have
reached a depth of sexual immoral
ityindeed, of sexual criminality
below which it is impossible for
humanity to fall. Family honor is
unknown among theso " degraded
pioneers of a pscudo civilization.
Incest and unnatural vices aro committed
without any attempt at secrecy. The
Portuguese morality in these dark re
gions Is apparently lower than that of
tho brute beasts. With the morality of
the native Makololo It can be com
pared In no particular. Among tho un
contaminated native peoples the moral
code is relatively a high one, and its in
fringment Is punished by death. Thoso
fearful and horrible crimes against
natural Instincts practiced by tho Portu
guese in their settlements on the coast
nro unknown to tho natives of tho in
terior. Under tho exemplary tuition of tho
Portuguese, however, the native popu
lation In the" neighborhood of and under
the influence of the Portuguese settle
ments have fallen almost to the Portu
guese level. Encouraged by the gross
immorality of their white masters, they
have long lost their own comparatively
high moral code. This is perfectly well
known to. residents in the Portuguese
coast settlements, and it is impossible to
preservo silence about facts that aro
notorious when, as at present, tho state
of Portuguese civilization In East Africa
is a subject that claims the attention of
philanthropic Europo.

A Story that llroucjht tlio Teller a
Drink,
From the Xtw York Ledger.
On a drizzlyj cheerless eveninc a
'dozen loungers, more or less, wero as
sembled In Trask's store. Trask had a
bar in one corner, 'Where moist goods
were furnished by the glass or by tho
flask, or, to accommodate, by the jug
ful. Also an old-fashioned open fire
place lent its charms to the comfort of
theplacc. By and by there entorcd a
tall, lank, slab-sided specimen of the
genus Yankee, who approached the
little semi-circular bar and called for a
glass of "old Jemakey." The decanter
containing Jamaica rum was set forth,
and the aforesaid biped. helped himself
to a generous horn.
"Hi!" cried one of the men at the fire
place, "that's the Chap that saved the
llehtnin' express. Jest yqu toll 'em
about It, Seth."
When Seth had drunk all hands
were eager to know how he had saved
the express train. They hadn't heard
of it.
"Waal," said Seth, wiping his lips
aud biting a good chew from a plug
of navy tobacco, "of yer kcer to hear
It. I'll tell ye how it happened."
They offered him a scat, but ho would
not sit.
'"Y6 s"ee, uiglit afore last, jest afore
10 o'clock, I wer' aout on the sldin' of
of tho railroad; comin' up from old
Whlttaker's, where I'd been helpln'

but, gosh, I mout as well 'avo tried to

Hero the narrator wiped his speckled

"I tell ye, boys, p'raps yo can jedgo

excited listeners iii' concert, "what

"Why, tho train wont right along

"And the iieam wnero was uiai:

Champion,
From the Ctnluru.
The survivors of tho Yakutsk massa
cro wero tried by court-martial, with
out benefit of counsel, upon tho cliargo
of armed resistance to tlio authorities,
and wero nil' found guilty. Three of
them wero hanged: fourteen, Including
four women, were condemned to penal
servitude for llfo; five, including two
women, were sent to tho mlnos for fif
teen years; four boys and girls loss than
21 years of ago wero condemned to
penal servltudo for ten years, and two
others wero sent as forced colonists to
tho Arctic villages of Verkhoyansk nnd
Srcdnl Kolynsk, in "tho remotest part
of Yakutsk."
And this sentence, tho St. Petersburg
officials say, is an evidence of tho "un
usual moderation" of tlio judges who
composed tho court-martiall A further
proof of this "unusual moderation" is
furnished by tho fact that tho political
exile, Kohau-Kcrnstcin, after receiving
foursovcro bullet wounds nt tho tlmo
of the massacre, and after lying nearly
five months in a prison hospital, was
carried to tho scaffold on n cot bed and
hanged by putting tho nooso around
his neck nnd dragging tho bed out from
under him. If this is Russian "mod
eration" one might well pray to bo de
livered from Russian sovcrlty.
One of tho executed men, two hours
beforo tho ropo was put about his neck,
scribbled a hasty faro well note to his
comrades, In which ho said: "Wo are
not afraid to die, but try you to mako
our deaths count for something writo
all this to Kcniian."

" I was troubled with catarrh for over
two years. 1 tried various remedies,
and was treated lv a number of Physi
cians, but received no benefit until I
begnn to tako Aycr's Sarsaparllln. A
low bottles oJ this medicine cured mo of
this troublesorao complaint and com
pletely restored my health." Jcsso SI.
lloggs, llolraan's Mills, N. C.
" When Aycr's SaTsaparilla was rec
ommended to mo for catarrh, 1 was in
clined to doubt its efficacy. Having
tried so many remedies, with llttlo ben
efit, I had no faith that anything would
euro me. I bccnuio emaciated from loss
of appetite and impaired digestion. I
had nearly lost tlio bouso of smell, and
my system was badly deranged, I was
about discouraged, when n friend urged
mo to try Aycr's Sarsaparilla, and re
ferred mo to persons whom it had cured
of catarrh. After tailing linlf n dozen
bottles of this mcdlcino, 1 am convinced
that tlio only sure way of treating this
obstinate disease IS through tho blood."
