to the memory of General Grant, in

reporter of the Pittsburg Penny I'rcii.
"Xot that ovcry member of the organ

teen cents, or even more, for the pur

a division of opinion astowhero the

Washington, and yet he was buried In
New York. They nru equally strong
In Ihu belief that thu Capital City is

They do not know where tho monu

Hev. J. L. Milllgnn of Pittsburg, who
was lately appointed National Commis
sioner of Prisons by President Cleve
land, will likely represent tills country
In the International Penitentiary Coin
mission, which meets in Home, Italy,
in October. This week ho received a
letter from M. Ueltrauinl Scalla, presi
dent of tho Intermilloiial Commission,
Inviting and urging htm to go to Home
beforuthe commission meets that he
may accompany a number of commis
sioners' from other nations on a trip to
the penal colony of the Italian Govern
ment, King Humbert will open tho
proceedings of tlio conference. Though
the meetings of the International Com
mission are held only ovcry seven
years, their work never ceases. Al
most every week Chaplain Mlliigan re
ceives a list of questions on prison nf
fairs from Mr. Scalla, llio president of
tho commission. The answering of
them requires considerable thought
and reseaich. A comparison of
methods from iho various countries K
Instituted in this wny and llio best ar
rived at. Mr. Milllgnn asked to bo ex
cused from the commission tills year,
but tho Government would not accede
to his request.
After all this Is not such a slow Ad
ministration as. sonio peoplu would niako
It out. An examination of its work In
Its tlrst six months, Just ended, shows
thnt It has removed Itepiiblicanolllclnls
nml appointed Democrats nt llio rato of
about one every five minutes during
working hours according to a calul.i
tlou made by Austin of tho Cincinnati
Timet-Stur. The hours of n Govern
ment employe arc supposed to bo from
II n. m. until -1 p. in., or seven hours a
day. The removal of one olllclal each
live minutes would bu at tho rato of
twelve per hour, or eighty-four per day.
There nro about twenty-llvo working
days in a Govenmcnt employe's month,
coutilliig out holidays, Sundays and
iho days on which tho Departments
llml nomo excuse for closing. Multi
ply eighly-four, tho number per day

a month, and you hnvu 2,100 per
month, then multiply that by tho lunu
la r of months since President
Cleveland's now Cabinet got to
work, and you have 12,000. That
llfsuio, curiously enough, just about
represents the number of appoint
ments made since the now administra
tion came Into power. In the Post
olllee Department thero havo been
about 7,000 fourth-class postmasters,

The following gossip concerning the

highly educated woman, thoroughly

tertaining conversationalists of her
time. Some of her sayings havo passed
Into proverbs among tlio society people
who do not originate anything When
Mgr. Capel wns hero he endeavored to
make a convert of thu brilliant Russian.
Shu wns very much annoyed by his per
sistence in talking to her upon the sub
ject of religion, ilo met her one oven
Ingal some reception and began talking
to her upon tins subject. no sam to
him: "It is no usufor you to talk to mo
about this matter. You arc merely
giving yourself unnecessary trouble.
You had better drop It." Thu

"Where I can have a prlvntu talk with
you?" said ho. "Yes," was her ru
ply. "Whcru shall wo meet J" said
lids society prelate, with a deep ,bov.
"In h , said Mine. Do Strove,
with another bow equally ceremonious.
Thu llusslan Minister has asked to bo
changed. He finds that Washington
Is too expensive a place. Ho cannot
remain hero ami entertain as ho has
without going beyond his salary. Ho
has a large family and has but a mod
crate fortune. With few exceptions
the leading diplomatic posts of all na
tions lcqulio private fortunes to back
them. Knglnnd is tiio only power
which backs up her representatives In
such n way that they do not need to
depend upon private support. The
llrlllsli Legation here Is one of the
handsomest buildings In Washington.
Thu Minister, oT course, lives in It
rent free. Ills salary Is $r0,000 a year.
a Is allowed something like that
every year for entertaining.
Filter one of the Government olllees,
says "Carp" of the Cleveland Leader,
and you will see pale-faeed clerks, men
and women, bending uvw desks writ
ing and figuring away their lives In
order lo obtain that which sustains
their lives. AAVashington clerk seldom
gels moru than this, and under tlio
civll-scrvico reform scheme tho Gov
ernment clerk Is becoming nioro and
moru a machine and less and less an
active, thinking, growing man. As I
stand hero on this marblo pavement
and think of tlio lives which will bo
eaten up, of the enterprise shriveled
into dolessncss, nml of tho manliness
wasted In this building In time to come,
it makes mo shudder. Young men will
como in hero full of hopo and courage,
full of brains and energy. When they
enler their thousand dollars or nioro a
year will feecin good pay to them, and
they will work with a will, hoping to
rise through the various branches until
their earnings will equal thosu of a
Cabinet Minister. It will not bo long,
however, before thoy llml thoy nro
lighting the windmills, ami in the sumo
old grind of copying other men's writ
ings, of posting dead books, where they
havo not tho opportunity for tho exor
cise of an original thought, their brnins
will wasto away for lack of uso, and the
lazy hours from 9 o'clock till ! will
eat up their energy, until some day In
thu futuru they will wnko to tho fact
that thoy have been swallowed
up by the great monster cannibal,
called the Government, which not
only cats up men's bodies but their
souls as well. At this timo sonio of
them may nttempt lo cut themselves
.loose, but their efforts will bo as futllo
as thosu of tho I.aocoon. The snakes
of habit and dolcssncss have wound
themselves nbout their palsied frames
and they will wait until at ln-.t death
will como to tako away what It thinks
to bo of so littlu valuo as to bo hardly
worth tho taking. This will bo tho
ease supposing civil scrvlco reform
prevails. If It falls tlio Government
clerk's position will bo allthoworse.
Ho is bound to bo dependent on his
superiors nt best, mid tlio lack of civil
service rule makes him all tho inoro
of a sycophant or a toady. Thero i.s
no worse employer than the Govern
ment, and I would rather work for a
Scrooge than for Uncle Sam.
Il is thought that Artcmus Martin of
File, Pa., it well-known mathematician
and friend of Congressman W. L.
Scott, will probably be placed at tho
head of the computing division of tho
Const Survey. There Is an interesting
bit of history connected with Mr. Mar
tin's mathematical career, which Is
related In tho llosion TmeeUer. Soy
em! years ago llio lloyal Society of
Mathematicians of London oliored a
piiyofor tlio solution of a peculiarly
dlllleult and complex problem. The
announcement was mado In ovcry

correct one amid the hundreds sub
mitted. A messenger was sent to lids
country bearing tlio prize. In due
time no a' I'lvcu at i.riu, ami was almost
paralyzed io find Iho recipient of the
pi lo an humble market gardener who
supported himself by that occupation.
Sincu that time Mr. Martin has started
a mathematical journal. Ilo sots part
of the typo himself, and is tho author
of some of tlio most intricate ami In
