wealthy. "Wealth was used for puposc of
oppression, Shakespeare has woven this in
the liuo "Put money in thy purse!"
When Iago would carry out his malicious
plan against Othello he would do it by in
stilling into the mind of tho dupe, Rod
erigo, his own idea of all that is good
and pure, and at the same time urge the
old idea of money as the way to carry out
his plan against tho virtue of Desdamona.
But this is changed, wealth is under our
present social organization an aid to the
laboring classes, and that the condition of
the laboring classes is betiered and worst
ed by wealth. In the first .place the whole
tending of civilization is toward the exal
lation of the man, and the depreciation of
the mere thing; then the wealth of the
Tnited States has increased from $310 per
capita in 1830 to S80 in 1870, interest dur
ing time being reduced from 7 per cent to
5 per cent on the average. This is so be
cause capital is constantly increasing, and
production stored, but this is not possible
with labor. Because of this accumulation
wages have increased from -510 to $23 per
month for common laborers and of servant
girls from 50 cents per week to $3 per week
during the period between 1850 and 1870.
Then again labor is limited by capital; the
nnnual product of the United States for
1880 was nine billion dollars, of this sum
eight billion one hundred million dollars
were paid to the laborers. If the la
borers had received all the product for the
year mentioned they would have received
but $20 per year per capita, or less than 6
cents Der day for eafh man. Some grant
the accumulation of wealth is beneficial,
"but who object to the unequal distribution.
It is this very fact of accumulation that
makes wealth so productive. If all the
coal of Pennsylvania were distributed
over tho whole United States what would
it be worth? Absolutely nothing. If we
must condemn monopolies let us com
mence at the monopoly that is the cause of
all other monopolies, the one that the na
tion has established, and when vie can
change these then try to change their off
spring. But there are other benefits aris
ing from the accumulation of wealth; the
tu-ice of the necessities of life havo decreas
ed, thus increasing the real as well as the
nominal wages of labor. It enables a class
of men to study nature and add to the
knowledge that will lighten the burden of
life. Wealth forms the bulwarks of na
tional perpetuity and independence. It es
tablishes schools where the rich and poor
are educated together, thereby removing
the naturally distrustful feelings between
the conflicting elements of society. Wealth
helps to send the gospel to those who have
never heard of the Gallilean. By the use
of wealth governments are made more se
cure from internal conflict and from inva
hion. The only reason tJie north succeeded
in the late war was because of the re
sources of the country, as the south had
ns good soldiers and as competent generals
as the north. Let us cease those efforts
that would impair our industrial system,
for the object of our government is 'toexalt
the man, and this object is in a large
measure conserved and promoted by the
accumulation and right use of individual
and national wealth.
After this came the presentation of di
plomas by Chancellor Everest as dean of

music of the day was a great help in mak

thank you most sincerely, but owing to
the unwillingness of some and the inabil

it will be impossible to accept your kind
offer of a benefit at present. At some
future time and under favorable condi

Thanking you again for the kind offer, I
remain yours very truly,

And then ha cried like a child.

And this it made him hum -

And they took chloride of potassium
And mixed it in his gruoL
Thon ho acted like a fool
Who had never been to school
His idiot groans were cruel.
5'hen oarbon from the pan
They placed beneath his crown;
Then ho fought like John h. Sullivan,
And knocked the sages down.
Then tho sages of Hindustan
They killed the ready mado man.

Is a process rather slow.

with tho Shronv'd Swindler.
In Wall street New York city, there ia
no place more interesting than the queer,
gloomy snd-suUen.lcoking Custom House.
In its gloomy recesses there aro every day
enacted many little comedies, and some-
THE ifEW TOEK CUSTOM HOUSE,
times a tragedy. Dropping in the other
day for a chat with Mr. "Hickey, who has
charge of the main room of tho "bureau
of seizures," I was struck with the appear
ance of several enormous packing cases,
each the size of a big trunk, but mado of
wickerwork, each marked in big letters
Pes N. D. S. S. IAHN.
"These," said Mr. Hickcy, "are the
latest subjects of judicial inquiry, and
the stuff in them cost $10,000 in Europe.
The actresses wanted to pass them as
'personals,' but we discovered that the
corporation had had them mado to order,
so the treasurer of the theatre had to come
down with $?,flH) in cash, for the duties,
and they aren't through with it yet. Oh,
the goods are simply gorgeous! The ballet
certainly intended to 'outstrip all creation.'
The girls had got themselves up regardless
of expense, and it seems to bo the nature
of women to hato a custom house and
custom house officers. A woman will do
almost anything to escape paying duty."
At this point in tho conversation tha
porters brought in another "seizure" a
plain pine bos, which some gentleman had
sworn through, or tried to, as his "per
sonal effects," but when opened it was
found to contain 1,000 cigars of a flavor so
delicate that it was a pleiisure to sniff at
them. The biggest seizure made in recent
years was of S0,000 cigars, ingeniously
packed in imitations of ordinary ebony
BAGGAGE INSPECTION OX THE POCK,
wood blocks the cigars being the finest
mado in Europe, so elegant that even at
auction and by wholesale they went for
over twenty cents apiece. On general rea
soning one would say that smuggling does
not pay when so many valuable "soizures"
are made; but customs officials shake their
heads at this suggestion and intimate that
in spite of extraordinary vigilance the
smugglers get enough stuff through to
make a general profit, deducting the occa
"Tho trouble is," said the old handler,
who has bten in the room many years,
"tho sharps are ever a gettin' up some new
way, and by tho time we get onto it they've
got another way you wouldn't dream of.
But the women are the daisies they're the
ones to sn;.kc tho stuff through."
"And what do they smuggle?"
"Well, nearly all of it ia in diamonds,
jewelry, silks, shawls, ribbons, laoes and
dressmakers' goods generally. It bothers
tho officers sometimes to tell what really
is dutiable; and those women well, they'll
swear without a quiver that It is all 'per
sonals,' swear they've wore it on the other
side. Ono woman had an underskirt made
up of tho Srwst kind of lace WOO worth, I
believe and it wos by tho littlest kind of
an accident she was caught. Wouldn't

THE SXTZUHE ROOM.
While he talked there came in a delega
tion of grave and yray spoctacied gentle
men to "swear through" some Egyptian
and Pompeian relics, subscribing tbem-t-fclves
as officials of the "Society of Egypt
ological Research:"' they took oath that
the articles were of no intrinsic value and
not for sale, and went away with tnem in
iigk good humor.
The biggest "seizure" in a small space
made for rsany veers was of Mexicin dia
monds set ih a curiously chased silver
and the ?rhole valued at $18,000. These
'ere reelafajed, and, after ranch, discussion
md many .-ppsls to higher authority, the
jwnsrs were allowed to receive tliera with

2xo one about the custom house knows
tho amount of the biggest seizure ever
made, and to find out would require a
search through record books far more vo
luminous than The Congressional Globe;
but there is an accepted tradition that a
Spaniard many years ago got thrvugh. safe
ly with $80,000 wonh cf diamoiuJ watches
and jewelry. The authorities afterwards
proved the amount and facte, but it was
too late. Some sissy years ago a Cuban
nameS Caroblno Estradas was conxicted on
a charge of murdering a woman who bad
been his mistress and who Ltd stolen, his
diamonds. It was first proved list he had
obtained the diamonds by fraud; then he
proved that they were family property in
Cuba long before; then the prosecution
proved a third story, and on appeal to the
customs books for some evidence nono ap
peared. Then the question arose as to
whether he "had smuSed the. diamonds,
and it was proved thax he had. Last of all,
still another account wss proved, and as
Estradas about that time died in prison
the problem remains asj.ong the insoluble.
That there were at least thxea sets of per
juries is certain, but which, was which no
man can. tell.
A few years ago o family of the plain
middle class with a few trunks sad boxes
J rmt i s iPi' 1 in
BOTUTvDA OF THE CUSTOM HOUSE,
had just passed inspection wiren'theofScial
undertook to be fi:miTtarly friendly wiib,
one of the boys wljo stemecLmore reserved
than tho rest. To his surprise the boy
seemed afraid of hnn, and when ho play
fully caught at him the boy "jumped stiff
legged," as jeekeys say. lie could scarcely
bond. Thinking it a peculiar deformity he
pressed the lad for an explanation when
tho latter commenced crying. The mys
tery was soon solved. His clothing waa
literally padded and stiffened with valu
ables of many kinds; he was incased in
wealth. Some clever rogues bad during
the voyage induced tbs parents to consent
to tho fraud and tutored the boy well; but
he broke down at the critical moment and
they lost their property. In the days of tho
chignon there was much more smuggling
of diamonds and jewelry than ixovr; that
receptacle was too convenient to be neg
lected. Perhaps the most interesting-part of tho
"seizure room" is tliat where mail pack
ages are stored from 200 to 500, or even
more, at once. Zifany people think they )
can sand small articles free in the mail,
and about Christmas tima letters by the
hundred are seized containing rings, hair
jewelry, gold ornaments, bits of fine lace,
kid gloves and other tokens. of affection.
Those the consignee can recover by simply
paying tho duty. Occasionally, however,
a "queer" book or picture is seized, and
there is no recovery. If a suspected letter
is registered, it is delivered to the con
signee, who must open it in the presence of
an official. It is rather odd that thera
should ever have been smuggling in such J
and the like; but it was done by disguising
the goods. i
When, for instance, "old-scrap iron" was i
admitted duty free the ingenious foreigner
soon found a mothod of "putting down"
tnennest or metal witn a mixture tnac
mado it look ns if it wero the refuse of a
blacksmith shop. Unknown thousands of
tons were fraudulently entered thus before
the trick was discovered. Similarly when
sugar was graded by color the importers
letrnod how to give a dark hue to tho
finest grades without injury; but now tho
polariscope beats all that. All the old
tricks are exposed and cai be defeated;
but who knows how many new tricks are
in operation? J. U. BEADIX.
