MOXDAY, -VO V EM HER 7.
The Great Banker of the Wold.
A London correerondent of the New York
Bulletin furnishes wme interctir etitistics,
which show tlat KnglarJ, while diminishing her
indebtedoc8 to her own tuljeets, id at the same
time the bauker fjr all the nations of the world,
lending them capital whenever wanted. The
writer savs :
In this repcct, the henvieit demands l ave
been made during the ten jears from 1862 to 1372,
either indicating an incr?nse daring that period
of internal and costly disturbances, ns in the
United States and France, or the aecamalation of
progremve idea. Engkud hcrpelf in that time
decreneed ber debt owing to her own people
S 175,OC0,000 ; the only other like instance being
Holland, to the extent ol 30,000.000. On the
other hand, wc find that the above-named govern
ments in that time have prodigiously increa.ed
their indebtedness France to the extent of
2,500,000,000, and the I'nited States $1,750,
000.000. It is somewhat of a financial surpri.e
to fnd that Italy ranks next. That country is
now groaning under a burden of $1,250,000,000.
Then follows Sain, with an increate during the
decade of 31,ihjO,000,000, perhaps less able to
see her vay through liquidation than Italy.
Ku.ia, with her va.et domain, an energetic Em
peror, and imbued with ideas rapidly expanding
to a projer appreciation of her vsvst internal
resources, has only added the lighter burden,
$550,000,0X. Next on the lic is Turkey,
adding, unce 1802, .v53j,000,000. Austro
Ilungary has increased 450,000.000; EgJJ't.
$350,000,000; Brazil, $275,000,0.K) ; Portugal,
$200,000,000; and Peru, $100,000. Other Mates
iiave increased in lesser amounts, rut periiaps
heavier in proportion to their ability to carry,
whilst Mexico, Greece, Ecuador, and Venezuela
liave remained stationary, for the reason that no
one was found willing to loan. According to
the figures previously given, 1 found the aggregate
of national securities subscribed fur and dealt in
here to reach the stupendous amount of $14, 113,
585,105 a sum, great as it i, very far short of
the actual indebtedness of the nations included
in the summary. Upon the authority of Fenn on
the Funds, it appears that $10,000,000,000 of
indebtedness were added during the period between
18C2 and 1872, of which not less than one half
was directly or indirectly referable to war, in
which the United States and France were the
most conspicuous, expending jointly $4,250,000,
000, and that by no means including all the dis
bursements occasioned by the wars in which they
were unfortunately engaged. The other half of
the augmented debt, it is estimated, has been put
to higher purposes than human destruction, but
only a part of that half can be clearly traced.
The sum of $6,075,000,000 went into the State
coffers of Russia, Spain, Turkey, and Egypt.
The first fpent a portion of this in building rail
roads, not wholly intended to cultivate the arts of
peace. The 6ccond applied part in the develop
ment of internal industries. Concerning the dis
position made of her quota by Turkey, ery little
is clearly known. The caprices of the head of
the State, the co6tly construction of iron-clads,
and the sustenance of corrupt officials may hare
spared but a email portion for direct application
to reproductive works. Egypt, the vassal State,
presents a better record. The Khedive can point
to the Suez Canal, and instance other works con
nected with the industrial progress of his people.
With regard to the Colonies and India borrowing,
during the period named, $235,000,000, no part
was used as blood-money, all of it having gone to
reproductive purposes and the civil uses of the
State. England, it will be seen, has Seen no
borrower; on the contrary, diminishes her debt,
munificently aids the peaceful progress of her
dependencies, and banks for the nations of the
world, all of whom are her debtors."
Will Make no Pledges.
If Don Carlos spoke as the latest American
correspondent who interviewed him represents
him as having spoken, he 1ms, whatever his
chances for reaching the Spanish throne, estab
lished a fair claim to bo considered a sensible,
honest man. One would suppose that an aspirant
for royal honors, having, too, a government to
fight and overthrow, might be profuse of promises
to the people as a means of inducing them to join
his standard. It is so easy to make promises
and the ignorant masses in Spain are eo liable to
be gulled by them that the temptation to a roan
of Don Carlos' pretensions to puint a roseate
picture, as a bid for their services, must be very
strong. This temptation the valorous Don has
had the courage to reject. He tells the corres
pondent thut he can promise nothing with the
certainty of fulfillment, and therefore he will
make no promise at all, beyond that of doing as
well for Spain as circumstances may permit him.
" I would," says he, " like to guarantee Spain a
great deal in the way of a liberal and progressive
government, but I am not sure of being able to
carry it out. Things thnt seem easy now, may
prove difficult or impossible when I come to the
throne, -and while the word of the King is sacred
times are too uncertain. '
This is a discreet and manly utterance. The
recent history of Spain 6hows its truthfulness, for
though there have been abundant promises made,
fulfillment has not kept pace with them. As
Don Carlos brings to mind, Amadcus when placed
upon the Spanish throne published a very fine
programme of his intentions. Being a well dis
posed monarch he made most earnest efforts to
carry it out ; but the spirit of disorder was more
violent than ever before, and there was no possi
bility of his being able to secure what he had set
before his eyes on ascending the throne. Every day
also, his life was in peril. Attempts to assassi
nate hiui were made in the streets. Without the
means of doing anything for Spain, simply risking
his own rerson by longer continuance at Madrid,
he abdicated. Outside of Spain there was a gen
eral sympathy for Amadcus, but among the
Spanish people there was very little. He had not
kept his promises. They did not care to ascer
tain that their own turbulence was what rrevent
ed him. Thev only knew the fact of his failure.
So of the Republican leaders who followed.
We do not recollect how many times ministers
have changed places, and cabinets been turned
inside out since the Republican form of govern
ment was inaugurated, but it has become quite a
common sort of amusement at Madrid. The
trouble there is largely duo to the fact that these
statesmen on taking their places at the helm
promise too much. Their confidence in their
own capacity leads them into the issuing of pro
spectuses which they aro not able to verify. One
has a plan for crushing the Carlists, and pledges
himself to put it into successful operation, and
bring it to a successful climax in a certain period.
The plan may be all right, but unexpected ob
structions are encountered, and it does not work
as speedily as anticipated. The Minister is pro
nounced a failure and set aside, that his place
may be given to another, who in a few weeks or a '
few months more, finds a similar experience.
Castellar, the brightest of all Spanish Republi- :
cans, fell by promisirg too much.
It is sensible, therefore, on the part of Don
Carlos to promise nothing specifically. He may !
never reach the throne but if he does get there, I
he will find himself unembarrassed by pledges,
and free to do what circumstances suggest as
being best for the people. The phantoms of l
broken vows will not haunt him as they haunted
Amadeus and so many of his Republican succes
sors in the government of Spain. nttsl-urg Vis- i
Mark Twaia's play. ' The Gilded Aee." has been
J rod need at the Rochester, Y. Opera House,
adgtog from the comments of the Rochester papers
tne dramatist nas treatea his characters with the ut
most cruelty, leaving them in a state of utter starva
tion at the close of one act, exhibiting them in the
lap of laxury in another, and bringing them tack to
misery again without the slightest regard to their
fi-elings. Perhaps the play is another one of Mark's ;
practical jokes, and it is in fact a play upon the :
credulity of the audience who are asked to accept it
as a seriouly intended drama.
The women are catchiug it all round. Chivalrous
man moralized on the T.lton downfall as the natural
fruit of the woman's rights agitation. Then numer
ous ministers Legan to bear testimony in tbe news
papers to the temptations of minis'ers, from which it
appeared that ministers, particularly if they te
young, are liable to ravishment in their pastoral
visits. And now comes Shucters and tells in his life
of Chase, which is apProTel by his family, that that
great man, while Secretary of tbe Treasury, would
never allow an interview to a woman with scuiethiug
to ask, because tbe female mind is so ilU.gic.il that it

GtEMAXTOwv, Sept. 14. The Ross case, like
all things transient, is gradually disappearing
from the public mind; but before giving it a final
gxd-tvc all jw me to offer you a theory, which
thus far I have not seen presented. I am a neigh
bor if Christian K. Uo, and we neighbors have
our thoughts and opinions on the subject of the
child's disappearance uhich I think should be
presented to the world.
About ten years ago, when Christian Row was
making his mark, and when his business)' was in
the most prosperous condition, be married a
Western lady, of a good family, and very wealthy.
He had two children of the marriage Walter
Ross and Charles Brewster Rose. For a long time
this was one of the happiest families in all Phila
delphia, but a few years ago Ross began to lead
the life of a debauchee; he wught other company
than his wife, his business began to decrease and
he became a bankrupt. To a refined and delicate
woman like his wife, this was a crushing blow,
and she 2eJ from the man, leaving the children

Some months before the kidnapping, Mr. Ross
received letters from the first and only wife asking
and demanding the children. It will be recol

6how any of the letters he received, with the ex
ception of the black-mailing note, and it will also
be borne in mind that the attempt was made to
steal both the children. It was not until three

Nellie Grant's Husband,
A csrrespondent of the Chicago Tribune, writ
ing from Green Bay, gives the following about
Charles Francis Algernon Sartoris: In the first
place there is an Englishman here, who is the
friend and agent of Sartoris, senior. Through
this friend, Mr. Sartoris, father of tbe subject of
our present sketch, bought some wild lands in
Green Ray and Sheboygan, Wis., simply as a fair
investment for surplus funds. Finding his second
! son, Algernon, likely to bow too many wild oats,
j he sent him to America, and Green Bay, to look
after wild land, hoping the change of occupation
i would prove beneficial. Coming out the first
time, he met Nellie on the Scotia, and that young
I lady fell desperately in love with the indolent, in
I different Englishman, who scarcely cared at first
: to profit by the kindness of the gods. When he
! reached Green Bay, her frequent letters aroused a
sentiment unlike any Charles rrancis Algernon
had ever before experienced. Here was the inno
cent, confiding heart of a young girl laid open
before him, with all its tender sentiment, its un
tried music. He was a man of fine literary cul
ture, well versed in classic lore, speaking six dif
ferent languogcs, educated at the University at
Hicdelbcrg, and constantly meeting in English
society elegant and accomplished young ladies.
The little Galena girl won him. At first he threw
her letters about his room indifferently, and took
but little interest in them. But time hung
heavily on his hands ; he had plenty of money and
no-work; even hunting and fishing lose their zest
wllen indulged in daily; and bo he went to Chi
cago, met the President and his daughter, on their
Western tour, proposed to Papa Grant, and was
politely snubbed. Sartoris grew desperate, went
back to England, kept up a furious correspondence
with Nellie, and the following summer returned
to Green Bay. Here the telegram came which
announced the death of his eldest brother. Sar
toris had just gone to Washington, to plead his
unsuccessful case with the President, Mrs. Grant
and Nellie being both on his side. He was walk
ing with the young lady in the garden of the White
House, when the telegram was placed !in his hands
announcing his brother's death by a fall from a
horse, and his own changed fortunes in conse
quence, he being now prospective heir to an im
mense estate. The young people were at once
engaged. Charles Francis Algernon went to New
York, and bought a superb diamond ring, a soli
taire, with which to bind the engagement. The
rest is a thrice-told tale. .
We can easily imagine, after getting a descrip
tion of Sartoris, why Nellie Grant should have
elected him her choice. He was the antipodes of
American young men, a stout, good-sized, broad
shouldered man, with muscles like whip-cord,
covered with clean flesh, just 6aved from fat;
fair, round, Saxon face, white by nature, red by
education; innocent blue ejes, with a baby-like
wonder in the eercne depths ; flaxen hair, parted
exactly in the middle and brushed flat down, the
ends bobbed into little duck-tail curls, 6olid ele
phantine limbs and tremendous hands and feet
the first of which were forever in ths way, whilo
the nether appendages epread out over all crea
tion. And then his clothes ! Never had such a
vision dawned opon the belledom of Green Bay !
Wide, baggy trousers of white duck or brown
velveteen, or velvet-colored corduroy; coats with
swallow-tails, and coats with no tails at all, mak
ing him look like an overgrown school-boy; cos
tumes of pure white, with flaming neckties.
Apropos of bis trousers, they tell this story of him.
lie made a call upon a young lady, one of the F.
Fs of Green Bay; but had ecarc.-ly seated him
self when the fire-bell rang. He seized his hat
and made a rush for the door, tbe young lady fol
lowing. She closed the door after him, and had
been some moments reseated in the parlor, when
she heard his characteristic ring, and opened the
door himself. "Aw, thwank you, Miss Ida; I
had to come all the way back; my trowsers were
caught in the dooah ! Excuse me, aw !" and he
made his final bow.
A Sorrowful Tale.
BEING THE ONLY AUTHENTIC NARRATIVE OF THE LIFE
Or CHRISTOPHER COLIJIIIVS Ji'PHERSON. A MEL
ANCHOLY WARNING TO ALL SMALL BOYS.
This boy was a good boy. He would have been
nn angel to-day but for the deceit of this false-
j hearted world. He wnsn t one of a set of trip
! lets, and, therefore, didn't liave honors showered
1 down upon him in his early days, but old women
; s;u"d there was foundation there for an orator, a
great general, or a philosopher, and old men ex- !

' particular happened to Christopher Columbus
j until tbe eighth year of his reign. His childhood
i days were full of mud-pics, the butt end of shin
; gles, paregoric, castor oil, and old Btraw hats
with the front brim worn off. He was a deep
thinker and a close observer for a 6inall boy, and
: he was just innocent enough to believe things
which other boys pitch out of the wiudow with
, out a second thought.
When Christopher was going on 9 years old he
heard some one say that a " penny saved was two
pence earned." He, therefore, laid a big Bung
town away in a crack under the mop-board, and
every day he looked to see it grow to two cents.
He had confidence and patience, but at length
both gave way. Then he got the cent out one
day and Mrs. Norton's baby swallowed it, and
that was the last of that Bungtown. The youth
ful Christopher didn't believe in maxims quite as
much as before, but he hadn't cut all his eyeteeth
hen this boy was a year older he heard it
said that " truth was mighty, and must prevail,
and that a boy who always spoke the truth would
surely make a great and good man. He com
menced to tell the truth. One day he got his
father's best r;izor out and hacked it on a stone,
and when the old gent caue home and aked, who
in blazes had done that, Christopher Columbus
spoke up and said :
"It was I, father 1 notched your old razor."
''You did, eh?'' sneered the old man, as he
looked up into the peach tree; 44 well, I'll fix you
so you won't never notch another razor for me!"
And he cut a budding limb and dressed that
boy down until the youth saw stars. That night
Chriftopher Columbus determined never to tell
the trutti nain unless by accident, and all through
lil'e he stuck to the toulut i;n.
When the lad was about 12 years old fie read in
a little h k that " honet-ty wns the best olicy."
He didn't more than hnlf bvlit-e it, but ho thmiht
he'd try. He went to Iwing honest. One dav
bis mother sent him to the grocery t buy cz.
and Bill Jones indool him tj s-iju.ivj.r tU
change in the pure!.ae of aIa water. When I f
got home his iiiOthcr a.-ked for the IiU'e !..I.ui v,

the liveliest tnar.nor. That r.igt.t a S o turned i tt ,
his downy straw be J the b y made up his tiind :
that honesty dida't pay, and he rs .ivNl to cheat
the whole world if he couli. j
When Christopher as half a year older he
came across the injunction: "lie kind t tiie
poor." He did not kn w w!.tl er it w --u Id jay
or not, but he set about it. lie knew of a poor
woman who sadly needed a spring hnnr, rnj fce
took over his mother's, al -ng nithafrvr other
thing, including his father's s-cond jnir of b..t.,
his own Sunday shoes, and so on. lie went
around feeling very big-heartel until the old gent
wanted to go to the lodge one night, anl tea it j
came out. j
"Gin away my boots, eh?" inquired hi father;
lugged your mother's best bonnet off, eh ? Well, j
I don t think you II remember the poor very much 1
' alter to-niznt7
and he unded Lhristopiier
a pump-handle until the boy I
n . "
hunted away, and even then didn't fcol as though j
he had made a thorough job of it. J
Ibey toolea this boy once more, lie beard a
rich man pay that everybody flwuH " make hay
while tlte sun shone." So when there came a
sunny day the boy went out, took his father's
scythe down from the plum tree and went to mak
ing hay. He broke the scythe, cut down the tu
lips, and hacked his sister in the heel, and his
mother came out and led him round by the hair,
and bounced him until he went into a decline.
They couldn't bauibooele this boy after that. He
grew wicked every day of his life, and before
his eighteenth birthday arrived he was hung for
murder. He said he didn't care a huckleWrry
about it, and died without making the usual
Fourth of July oration. Dttroit Free Press.
Chief Jistice Ciiask and the Ladies. One of
Mr. Chase's inflexible rules was never to transact
business with ladies. He had not the gallantry
to believe in the supremacy of feminiue reason.
o amount of explanation, he was accustomed to
say, was sufficient to convince a woman that to
grant any particular request was inexpedient or
impossible. " Un one occasion a rude and per
sistent woman office-broker, of considerable per
sonal attractions, literally thrust herself into his
presence, and demanded an interview, but his
refusal was so emphatic and his manner so stern
that she retreated thoroughly frightened. On
another occasion, Mrs. W., wife of an old ac
quaintance and herself an intimate in Mr. Chase's
family, and a lady of great elegance, boasted that
6hc would make him forget his rule. She went
to the office and sent in her card. He sent back
a very courteous message, explaining his regula
tion, and invited her at the same time to make
known her wishes through the messenger. But
Mrs. W. had no wish except to make him break
his rule in her favor. Presently she scut her card
a second time, and received again the same mes
sage. She then resolved upon another expedient.
She gave the messenger at the office door no
opportunity to intercept her, except by an act of
great ruaeness, and deliberately opened it and,
stepping inside, asked the secretary if sho could
have an interview. Ilia reply was a stern and
unmistakable, No ! Sho burst ' into tears and
retreated; Mr. Chase, instantly full of regret,
followed Mrs. W. into the hall, and, seating him
self at her side upon one of the sofas, expressed
his sorrow at what had happened, repeated the
rule he had prescribed for himself, and explained
its necessity as he thought, and again asked her
to explain her wishes, but did nut invite her into
his office." -
. A New Kind of Life Ixscra.vce'. The Boston
Board of Trade has under consideration a plan
for the establishment of a bank, the peculiar
features of-which are, that while it will be a
savings bank, it will make loans to depositors,
and insure lives under policies which shall guar
antee cash surrender values. These policies will
be of service in enabling borrowers to obtain
loans, and to have a resource for their repayment.
The capital is to be $500,000, divided into shares
of fifty dollars each, the annual dividend being
restricted to ten per cent, per annum. Policy
holders will have preference in obtaining loans,
when the Securities they offer are of a satisfactory
character.' At the end of the fiscal j'oar the sur
plus which remains, after deducting dividends
and the 6tock, and after providing for a reserve
and all outstanding claims, will be divided among
the policy-holders on the contribution plan, the
shares to be used in reduction of the premiums.
T'icse are the main points in the enterprise,
which is fathered by Elizur Wright, a man of
great experience in life insurance matters. It is
an innovation upon the present way of doing life
insurance; but it presents attractions and privi
leges such ns are not offered by any strictly life
in.-u ranee companies. It furnishes incentives to
Dion who need homes and tho money to build
t!;eui, to insure their lives and provide for their
families in two ways. It will induce men to
become capitalists by saving their money that it
may earn money. The operation of the plan
must necessarily be confined to the place where
the bank is e.-tablished. Upon its success will
depend the establishment of similar corporation
in all the large towns throughout the land, and a
consequent revolution in the manner of conduct
ing life underwriting.
Trouble With Twesty-two Women. Twenty
two Chinese women seem to have lately set the
city of San Francisco in an uproar. Ordinarily,
one woman might have done it; but these were
of an inferior race, it should be observed, and it
required more of them to move the Golden City.
The twenty-twq women arrived from China on
tl.o steamer Japan, and wore objected to by the
Stato Commissioner of Emigration, on the ground
that they were chattels, imported for immoral
purposes, lie prohibited their landing. The
Chinamen who had imported them set np that
they were immigrants, and were entitled to pro
tection and liberty under the Civil Bights law
and the treaty between the United States ond
China. On a writ of habeas corpus they were
brought beforo a district court, which, amid
great excitement on the part of the Chinese pop
ulation, decided that they were courtesans, and,
'under the laws of the State, could not be allowed
to remain in Sn Francisco. They were, accord
i'u'y. remanded to China. Brought to the steam
ship, these unfortunates refused to goon board;
they lay on the wharf and howled piteOusly, and
were carried on to the ship by main strength.
There they were' released, just as the vessel was
sailing, by a new writ from tho Supreme Court
of the State. The women were sent to jail for
sale keeping, and the whole case, involving the
ohiigations of the Burlingame treaty, the Civil
I'ights law, and the Fifteenth Amendment to the
C-jn.-titution of the United States, was reargued.
The final deei.-ion, as we now learn, was to the
effect that the importation of the women was j
unconstitutional and illegal, and they must be
sent back to China by the ship that brought
them. This is a test case, and lias, therefore,
great interest to Californians bent on preventing
the importation of foreign courteans.
