work on sugar estates operated largely by
American citizens upoa the credit system.
These proprietors fear that in case the

GGULD AND KEENE.
Widely Different Natures of
Great Wall-street Kings.
Probably no ts'i m -n ou the street differ so
widely in temper.t!Ueut as d theu tw opera
tors. The bth hive in 'them the eleia -nts of
unpopularity, and tint's abut all they have in
common. Thi nup-pil.irity of evjh, however,
will be wr ought f r very ditT-rent reasons.
ELeene woul 1 b.; g - lerally unpopular, because
he is inditf'-reut ast. the opinions of others, and
is somewhat irrit iM- iu disposition, and not
always agreeable iu ui tuner. Gould, ou the
other ban 1, when n t se-:kiug th- favor of those
with who u he comes in coutact, is not averse to
its bestowal, and iu temper and manner is as
soft au 1 fine to the social touch as the wool of
the lambs whose symbols he has fleeced by the
thousands. Gould is said t have some kindly
traits, bat they are not so plentiful that he car
ries them around with him during business
hours. Probably no man iu the world has so
mauy and 9) great opportunities as he to assist
others iu money-getting, by merely speaking a
truthful word novr au 1 then. Yet, if lu has a
business friend who has not lost money on
words and opinions uttere 1 by him, or through
his office, withiu the past twoyeirs, it is because
that friend has not heeded his utt.Tauces.
Keene, ou the other h-iu l, while he is uustable
and suspicious, aud neither invites nor accepts
confidence, is above any little petty misrepre
sentations fji th? purpose of sticking an ac
quaintance with a few hundred sli ires of stock.
If Gould shjuli give au opinion to a man of
moderate means that a c-.rtaiu stojk was a stfe
purchase, about as much reliance could be placed
in it as upon the varying winds of March ;
while Keene, if he could be induced to give an
opinion at all, aud if he believe 1 his opinion. was
to be acted upon, woald express hi:asulf sin
cerely and on his best ju.lgineut. Of course
this d es not apply, iu either cue, to utterances
ma-Ie to active tralers iu tli : m irkel it is con
sidered entirely the proper thing on Wall street
to deceive auy oue wao might exert tlje smallest
fraction of influence ou the market's geuer.d
A. few judges, a few editors, and a few legis.
lators, have made nivjey through Gould's office
points,-but the liue must be dr.r.vn there. The
more faithful th service, ths" more close the
relation, the greater the coufi lence reposed by
an associate or friend, the greater the financial
loss inflicted. This, at least, cau not be said of
Kehe. In no respect do these great operators
differ so widely as in business scope. Keene is
a speculator, pure and simple, and so thorough
ly imbued with its spirit that he has never ru.-iJe
his mark in a single outside enterprise. Fie is
one of the ablest and most expert operators in
that line, however, that ever came to Wall
street, and had it not been for one mistake
that of extending himself into every brunch of
speculation, aud particularly his dealings in
" privileges "he would now have $1,000,000
for every $100,000 that he has. But Gould is
one of the shrewdest and most successful specu
lators iu the world, and at the same time the or
ganizer and promoter of stupendous business
enterprises. One of the surest evidences of his
wonderful ability is the class of meu with which
he has become sarrouuded, and of whom he is
the leader. He is not afraid of great associates
outshining him, and so well poised in his lead
ership that his staff is not jealous of his su

discreetly exercised as not to irritate those who

The Late Mrs. Allison.
The Chicago News furnishes the follow
ing points of a fcketch of the life of Mrs.
Senator Allison, who committed suicide by
drowning at Dubuque, Iowa, last Suuday
evening: At the time of her death Mrs. Al
lison was thirty-two years of age. She was
the daughter of George Neally, a wealthy
farmer. Mrs. Allison's mother dying when
she was quite young, she was adopted by
her aunt, Mrs. Senator K. W. Grimes, with
whom she remained up to the time of her
marriage. Her father died two years ago.
She was privately married to Senator W.
B.Allison in Burliugtou June 5, 1573, a
short time after the death of Senator
Grimes, who bequeathed to her $o0,000.
Following au Kuropean tour of four
months' duration, Mr. and Mrs. Allison
had made Dubuque their place of res
idence. Mrs. Allisqn was a highly educated
lady, beautiful and accomplished, and be
fore marriage was regarded as the reigning
society belle iu Burlington. Shortly be
fore her death she had planned an extend
ed visit to Mrs. Senator Grimes, Mental
ailment manifested itself withiu the past
four years. In her early years she was not
inclined to melancholy, but was unusually
bright and cheerful. Within the past few
years she became impressed with the idea
that she was a burden on her husband, and,
it is said, regretted never having borne any
OUR PARIS LETTER-
The Comtesse de Chambord Kicks the
Comte de Paris Down Stairs Rani as
an Agent cf Government France Begs
Germany to Note that she has Spent
Two or Three Millions on the Defense
of French Soil since 1871.
Paris, September 5. 18S3.
Kevenge is sweet especially in women
as the Comtesse de Chambord illustrates by
kicking the Comte de Paris down stairs,
while dissembling her love. The fusion be
tween the royalists appears to be confusion
worse confounded. The country, to its cred
it, takes not the slightest interest in royal
pretenders washing the family linen in
public. To use an expressive phra.se, the
Comte de Paris looks to have been " sold,"
aud a few of the Chamboni journals ten
days ago warned him not to be so cock sure
of his succession.

Philippe for sacrificing the divine right of

Louis-Phiupne, who protested in lssU. t it a

In point of truth the lad's chances resemble

According to Shakespeare, Julius Ciesar
never stood on ceremonies. Modern Ca-ars
are not so philosophical. It was a weak
point in the imperial system of Napoleon I
or rather he considered the frailty of hu
man nature for rank as an ageut of govern
ment. Thus he made all his great generals
princes and dukes, and what they liked
better, estates to maintain their new hon
ors. Naturally there was a rush for the
highest seats in the synagogues. Napoleon
published several decrees fixing the rank of
public personages. First came the French
princes; second, the grand dignitaries; third
cardinals; fourth, ministers; twelfth, arch
bishops; eighteenth, bishops, and twenty
sixth and last, the Presidents of the Re
formed Church and the Chief R ibbi. In
each of these categories the chief individual
was to be first, the second in importance
was to be on his right hau l, the second on
his left, In the old Assemblies of France,
ecclesiastics came first, then the Nobles,
and last the tiers etats, or people.
At a congress or in a cortege, the place of
an ambassador was very important. Pope
Julius II. ruled that the Eaiperor came first,
next the King of France, Castille, Aragon,
Portugal and England were ee egus ; bat
Cyprus had precedence over Poland, Den
mark and Sweden. Frauce ever contested
her place with Spain, and when Louis XIV
ascended the throne the point was still un
settled. A step more forward in a proces
sion, a chair nearer an altar, a seat more
vis-a-vis the preacher, was hailed as a tri
umph. ' On one occasion in London, the
servants of the Spanish Ambassador de
Vatteville, cut the traces of the horses at
tached to the carriage of the Freuch Minis
ter d'Estrade, killing also some of his valets
in order to secure a first place. Louis de
manded au apology aud Philippe IV. sent
an 'ambassador to Versailles, who, in pres
ence of the court, renounced forever Spain's
precedence before France. On the signing
of the treaty of the Pyrenees the question
of rank between Cardinal Mazarin aud Don
Luis de Horo, was only settled by bringing
into the midst of the Congress, a round ta
ble. A leading Freuch jourual does not believe
that Germany means war by her fee-fo-fum
admonitions, and begs the fair-haired Tue
tons to note, that since 1571, France has ex
pended two or three millions ou the defen
ces of the country, and that she cau call out
one lU'llion of trained men, supported by
lines of fortresses. If Germany lost 100,000
men by the last war, she would lose double
that number in case of a new collision.
Even were she successful and docked off
other provinces fro:u France, she would
ofind these as difficult to govern as Alsac,
r her Poles, Danes, aud llauovarians.
The same paper urge s France to "eternal
ly guard " Tunis, Madagascar, the Cug
and dpiam. The latter '"protectorate" is
now viewed as involving a war with China.
Why shrink from that, say the French;
make her "cave in;" take a good slice of
her territory; iu course of time help to a few
more cuts till the take be as big as British
India, aud keep it ou the same lines. Noth
is alluded to about having to knuckle down
on the Madagascar affair. In revenge, the
press appears to have discovered, iu a Joe
Miller just published on English manners
aud customs, why the English must emi
grate. Fathers it seems, keep an account
of all the expense each sou costs, for board,
lodging, schooliug, and pocket money, from
his birth till he is 21 years of age; even the
expenses of the monthly uurs and the doc
tor's bill are added. The total is presented
by the affectionate father to thd dutiful s n
which compels the latter to holt, that is to
6iy, to emigrate, to avoi 1 payment, or the
bankruptcy court. One point that foreign
powers ought to well note, iu all the new
couutries that France is "protecting," she
means to allay protests by assuring all na
tions shall be allowed to trade with the na
tives on t'.ie same footing as herself, but it
is Polichinc-Ile's secret that France means
in due course to assimilate all the tariffs of
her colonies and "protectorates," to that of
the mother country.
Our summer is past, and the milder sun
of autumn shines pleasantly. Perhaps a
fear, more or less sincere, exists respecting
the cholera. Doctors still prohibit fruits.
and the prescription is better ob-iervetl by J
the daughters of Eve than at the time of
Paradise. Melons are above all placed se- j
verely in gastronomic quarantine. To eat i
a fslice of that fruit prudence de u ni ts t
make your will beforehand. In the organ
ization of Parisian life, each month of the
year corresponds to a leisure or a luxuri;
thus September is synonymous with fish
ing aud hunting, and such are the joys of
the moment, iu the stately castle as in the
humblest rented villa.
Great efforts are being made to facilitate
the education of women. Opiuion is very
i much divided on the few colleges recently
; opened to that end. The late Bishop Du-
pauloup laid down, that the first thing to
do in the formation of woman's character,
was to give her a love for work. Eousseau
maintained, the role of woman is only to
please, up to her marriage; his Sophie
learned nothing except what she picked up
from an old volume of Telemachus. He
weutfurther by asserting, "all lettered
ladies will remain old maids so long as men
will remain sensible.' However, the fair
sex can have furnished heads, if they will
only add a love for work, and go in train
ing to be good wives.
Marie Stuart, at the age of thirteen und a
half years, recited before the court at the
Louvre, a Latin poem composed by her
self, and that impartial critics said was
more than fair; she was also a good musi
cian and a charming painter. In the poem
in question she sustained, that women
ought to be instructed, und that beautiful
knowledge was for them a grace more.
I met a few days ago in a rare French work
some curious details on Marie Stuart, and
her Dauphin husband, later Francois II.
They were about the same age, wen; uar
ried at 15, and he died at the age of 17 from
an abscess behind the ear,and that the doc
tors feared to trepan, Francois had the in
firmity to not be able to secrete by the nose,
so that such matter lodged in his head. In
deed it was rumored he was poisoned in i
the style of Hamlet's lather. At best he '
was a weakly youth, achubuy looking boy,
with no vigor of character. Wheu he ex
pired every oue deserted liiui; none close 1
his eyes. Only two persous accompanied
the body to St. Denis, where the blind
Bishop of Sen I is read the burial service. A
slip of paper w is .ittaciu I to the c i tio s it
iriziug the simplicity of toe fuiiei il. An
explanation was given, t i it the fmotny

But what a contrast with his nuptials,
celebrated at Notre Dame, April (n t De
cember) 154S. Marie was led to the altar
by her uncle the Due de Lorraine, an I her
"bridal dress was so white that it was im
possible to describe;" the train was held up
by two young ladies; from her neck hong a
ring of great value witn necklace of costly
gems. On her head was a crown of gold or
namented with diamonds, rubies, sapphires
and emeraldsjin the center was u carbuncle
valued at half a million crowns. After the
bride came the King, and close at hand a
Dtrehesse de Berry. The King took off his
finger a ring, and handed it to the Arch
bjshop, who employed it iu the ceremony.
A "scientific and elegant oration" follow
ed. On leaving the cathedral money was
thrown to the crowd like hail kissing com
forts from heaven; so that mauy court
ladies lost their head dresses and had their
mantles torn. By the order of His Majesty
the bride and bridegroom pro neuade I be
for the church, to satisfy the crowd.
After the state diuner.a dance succeeded,
where the King had Mary for partner, and
the Dauphin his mother, Catherine de
Medicis. courtiers were dressed iu cloths
of gold. At five in the afternoon the bride
and the Queen were carried in a couch
through the streets, followed by a br illiaut
cavalcade. On returning to the palace the
ball commenced, where ballads, mummies,
round games, and dancing succeeded; 12
woodeu horses, richly caparisoned, J Jdetiled
along the hall, mounted by the Due d'Or
leans, Due d'Auir.ale, etc.. then succeeded
the little princes in Queen Man carriages,
containing pilgriiusfor passengers. Hymns
aud canticles were sung iu honor of love
and matrimony. The ball wound up by the
entrance of six ships, with silver cloth
sails, undulated as if on the sea; each ship
had only a sailor, who took a lady onboard
on passing; thus the King took his Queen,
the Dauphin his bride, and so on.
Clovis Ilugues is a deputy for Marseilles,
and supplements his official salary by
grinding yards of poetry on passing events
lor the Paris papers. A few years ago he
was married. Last week he learned that
his wife had been, at the age of 15, the mis
tress of a certain gentleman, and the fact
was elicited iu a process of separation be
tween the latter and his wife. The evi
dence was concocted by a "private inquiry
ofUce" on hearsay, aud it is terrible to
think such libels were allowed to be regis
tered at Court. Madame Hugu es vainly
attempted to shoot down her calumniators,
but has consented to prosecute them. She

The Dread Disease in Fort at San Francisco-
The steamer Newburn of the California
and Mexican Steamship Liue, arrived Sat
urday, September 29th, at San Francisco
from Guay mas arid Mazatlau with five casts
of yellow fever on board, two of them bad
cases. The vessel was boarded by Quaran
tine Officer McAllister, who, upon learning
of the prevalence of the disease on board,
ordered her placed iu quarantine about five
miles from Mission Bock, and no commun
cation of any kind will be allowed with the
shore. The disease is confined to the ship's
company, as she took no passengers on her
return trip, the Captain having received
strict instructions from the company to that
effect. One of the patients, whose case is
considered dangerous, is the second officer,
W. L. Gabon. How the disease came ou.
board is somethiug of a mystery, as none of
the crew were allowed ashore, aud in every
port the vessel visited she laid out several
miles from the land, and the freight and
mails were received from lighters.
Will he taken by Dr. McAllister to pi event
the possibility of the scourge reaching the
city. Wuether or not it would become epi
demic iu our climate, is a matter of Houbt,
Dr. McAllister being of the opinion that it
would not, but no experiments will be made
iu order to test that question. The opiuion
is expressed by many physicians that the
fever, if introduced into those portions of
the State where malarial diseased prevail,
would prove serious. That the interior as
well as the seaports may be protected, Dr.
W. W. Grisson, of Los Angeles, has been
appointed Resident Agent of the State
Board of Health at Fort Yuma. Dr. Gris-
sou will examine all passengers arriving ov
erland from Mexico, and any cases of fever
will be quarantined iu a field hospital, the
tents for which have been furtiishu l bv the
Adjutant-General of the .State. Similar
quarantine arrangement exist at Tucson.
F. V. Hitch, Secretary of the State Board
of Health, who has just returned from Fort
ium i, state ! that he was unable to obtain
any farther information regarding th..; yel
low fever iu Mexico than had been already
published by the papers ot this city. He is
sanguine, however, that the disease will
not become epipemic on this tude of the
frontier, as he never knew an imported case
to prove contagious, the necessary condi

An Anti-European Riot at Canton, China-
London, September 1 1 - A dispatch from
Hongkong states that a Chinese mob at
Canton burned tin? houses if sevi-ral Euro
pean merchant, aud also their wharves,
causing great connd ruuti'jn among the for
eign residents, most of whom Nought refug
on board vessels Iu tho river. iN'o violence
was o IK red l t.hohn, mid ti fnrr of Chi
nese troops wai rulPed out, which quickly
dispersed the Hotel s. Ou thi rei clpl of the
intelligence at Hongkong m-veial gunboats
were immediately Kent to ('anion to atlbrd
protection to the foreign merchants.
A dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph
Company from PnrU says the rioting iu
Canton has caused a great sensation In all
circles, and will, it Is feared, result iu a col
lision between the French and Chinese.
A dispatch from Hongkong to Iteuter's
Telegram Company confirms the pievious
reports of the riot at Canton, and states that
two war titeauiers hae started from Hong
kong to protect life and property at Canton.
The riot was caused by a number of Portu
guese sailors killing a Chinaman in an af
fray. The Honkong correspondent or the Daily
News say-: Tin foreign consuls at Ciuloii
hauled down their flags (hiring the rioting.
A hostile attitude was displayed by the Chi
nese against the Europeans, hut the affair
is unimportant politically.
The Times, in a leading article says: It
is difficult to avoid the suspicion that the
Canton riot was directly connected with
the irritation caused by the French opera
tions in Tonquin. The time has arrived to
more effectually secure British lives and
property in China. The Chinese cannot be
too forcibly impressed with the truth that
i all foreigners are not Frenchmen, and that
the enormous interests of England will Ik
vigilantly protected. We can no longer

Canton, September 11. During the riot
here the mob threw the contents of the
buildings which they attacked upon the
wharves and looted them. The riot lasted
several hours, aud order was not restore I
until the arrival of the Chinese troops.
Great excitement prevails among all classes
Much indignation is expressed at the ab
sence of men-of-war to protect the European
Paris. September II. The riot at Caiilou
was simply the work of roughs, who thought
that they have a vested right to fees for car
rying the luggage of new arrivals. Their
fury at being forbid Ilni to hoar 1 a steamer
was increas. 1 by the accidental drowning of
a comrade. According to another version,
the riol originated in a dispute between na
tives and 'sailors in the lower quarters of
Canton. The latest advices say that thir
teen houses were burned. The British gun
boats Espoir and Swift are affording pro
tection to the Europeans.
Something About the reader of the Spanish
Zorilla is, he told ?ne. a nalivt- of Estit-nm-ilura.
It was not he who i.roiight in the Duke
of Aosta to replace Isabella, but Prim. Zorilla
bus been u Republican eer since he lift school,
lie is a lawyer by profession, had good business,
bnt never enoui'li to make a fortuue. How
ever, though not rich, he can live in simple dig
nity here iu Paris, and he is uble frequently to
assist poor eouiitiyin i who apply to him for re
lief. He goes very little into French or Spanish
soeiety. Cleiuenceau is one of his personal
friends, and M. Lockroy, Victor Hugo's ton-in- :
law, another. With political men of his creed
living iu Barcelona, .Madrid, Cadiz and other
towns, he is in active correspondence. He de- '
iaonstrates the necessity of Republican institu- j
tions, but dots not conspire in the old-fashioned !
sense of the word, liy not "conspiring," he
means that he does not orgauise resistance to j
the monarchy. U'U he advises it whenever it is
practicable ; and whenever there is, in conse
quence of his advice, an insurrection, he will
then go back to Spain. I believe him to be
there now. Zorilla is a man of cool head. He
is in daily practice a philosopher, aud a man of
duty. Vanity has a small place in the motives
which actuate him. Ho has high aims simply
beennse he likes what is elevated, and is satisfied
that in the long run God will not suffer the world
to become the property of contemptible people
whose moral horizon is limited by their appe
tites und base pulsions. Zorilla has not an em
phatic or bombasty; way of expressing his hopes
aud convictions. He talks as a man of superior
intellect might who was uudcr sentence of death
aud saw the world iu its true li'ht. The tone is
quiet. He reasons cleaify, and is very sure of
the stability of the premises from which he
draws his conclusions. While he explains the
why and wherefore of the faith that he keeps
bright, he twirls and puffs a cigarette. He is
not handsome, but has a well-characterized
face. His teeth would be all the better if looked
after by an American dentist. His noso is long
and of a delicate outline, and well-developed
the nostrils. He has dark, keen eyes,
which do not express curiosity, but receptiv
ity and discernment. He often observes
without being conscious that he is observins.
and finds himself uuder the iutlaence of an im
pression which he was at no pains to form. Then
he reasons upon the thiu s that have impressed
him. His forhead is high aud whiter than the
rest of his face. The bauds aire the color of gin
gerbread, but of au aristocratic shape.
Zorilla sometimes goes to Mine, Adam's. He
was an intimate friend and a warm admirer of
Gambetta. Zorilla was turned cut of Prance by
the Mcilahon Government, which helped the
Itute-Serrano-Pavia intrigue. He said to iae
when he came buck to Paris iu 1879 : " Mark
my words. The Spanish royal family will dis
gust even their moral-ardor friends by their in
gratitude toward Frauce." A short time ago he
reminded mo of this prediction. Alfonso was
