The States of Wyoming and Utah have re
cently had their seals nnsdc, and aro now affix
ing them to all public documents emanating
from the Governor or Secretary of State. That
of Wyoming represents a jredestal showing on
the front an eagle resting upon a shield. Upon
the bhiuld are engraved a star and the figures
"44," being the number of Wyoming iu tho
order of admission to Statehood. Standing
upon tho pedestal is tho draped figure of a
woman modeled after tho statue of the "Vic
tory "of the Louvre, from whoso wrists hang
tbo links of a broken chain. In the right hand
the holds a staff from which floats a banner
bearing the words "Equal Bights." This sug
gests the political position of woman iu this
State. On either side of tho pedestal, standing
at its base, are male figures, typifying the live
stock and mining industries of Wyomiug. He
bind the pedestal, and iu the background, are
two pillars, each supporting a lighted lamp,
signifying tho light of knowledge. Around
the pillars supporting these lamps are scrolls
bearing tho words "Live Stock," "Grain,"
"Mints," and "Oil." At the base of the ped
C6tal in front aro tho figures 'JG3," "1B90,"
tho former signifying tho organization of tho
Territory of Wyomiug, and the latter tho date

The seal of the State of Utah, which was com
pleted on May 2, is well composed. An eagle

Tho word "Industry" is emblazoucd ac.rs

shield aro crossed two flags of the United States.
Around tho outer edgo of the seal aro the words

Secretary Hoko Smith's Private Secretary is

The wedding of the Vice-President's daughter
the other day moved an old newspaper corre
spondent to tell of an incident when Nellie
Grant married S&rtorls. Tho President decided
to. keep newspaper, men from witneseiag the
.cremony. Thia was from no churlishness on
the part of Gen. Grant, hat Ikmum h recog
nized tho impracticability of letting all the
reporters in, and didn't wish to show favoritism
by admitting a few. John EuescII Young was
one of tho correspondents who wanted a story
of tho wedding for a New York paper. A cer
tain well-known man iu Washington made a
visit to Seuator John P. Jones, of Nevada, at a
time when tho latter was not at home. "I'll
just write him a little note," said ho to the
servant, aud sat down and began busying him
self with an imaginary letter to the Seuator;
On a table near him ho 6aw tho very article
that the newspaper man coveted, and in a ec
ond the card of invitation to the Grant-Sartoris
wedding was in his pocket. In a few hours
more John Ilussoll Young had it. Then s
couucil of war was held, and it was decided to

speculating iu the interim on the chances of

a ''great scoop" was buzzing over tho wires to
Quite a hubbub has been kicked np by the
acccp'.anco of tho Bohl-Smith design for the
statue of Gen. Sherman. Thcro is always a
row after every acceptance of a design, and wo
have sonnding discussions as to what is art and
what is not. Most of it is selfish and insincere.
There arc cliques among artists who are just 33
viciously opposed to one another as are political
factions, and just as unscrupulous as to tho
truth. I haven't a bit of pationco with them,
and it will tako an immense amount of proof
to convince me that tho committee did not ac
cept the very best design offered. I know them
to he good soldiers, intimate acquaintances of
Gen. Sherman, and straightforward, houorablo
men. 1 would take their verdict unhesitat
ingly against the National Association of
Sculptors, the Washington Society of Sculptors,
and any number of other organizations..
Tho Carl Kohl Smith design for tho new
Sherman statue here is of much interest. Tho
main pedestal carriestho cquestiau statue aud
two groups, "War" aud "Victorious Peace,"
symbolizing mankind horrified during the war
and happy, enjoying life iu time of peace.
There at c four basjelicfs, onu representing Gon.
Sherman and his atmyou tho march through
Georgia; another the battle of Atlanta, July
22, Gen. Sherman overlooking tho field; a
third, Gen. Sherman planning, while tho army
sleeps, and auothcr Missionary Bidgc, Nov. 24,
witkthe Gcneial aud staff hi the middle ground.
Four statues on the comer pedestals on tho
terrace represent a soldier ready to defend tho
flag, cavalryman rejoicing over victory, an artil
leryman on watch, and a young woman adorn-
I ing. Gen. Sherman's sword. There aro eight
portrait mc-dallious of tho General's corps com
manders on the corner pedestals. As in tho
case of tho other monuments, the base and
pedestal arc to be of grauilts and tho statue and
other figures aud thcmcdallioustobeof bronze.
An effort will be made by Congressman Cum
miugs aud others to secure for tho Government
for preservation in tho Capitol the Travis paint
ing of Lincoln. The House Committee on tho
Library has recommended an appropriation of
$15,000 for the acquirement of this oil portrait,
which is life-size. The artist is Gcorse W. F.
Travis, tho son of a German painter of some
local renown. He came to this country in 18G4
and immediately sought to enter tho army.
He was rejected on account of physical dis
ability. President Lincoln became interested
iu tho painter, was attracted by his enthusiasm
and gave him several sittings at tho White
House. The painting was finished in England
at tho painter's studio aud at once attracted the
attention of a United States Consul, who bought
it. The work was exhibited 3t ho Centennial
Exhibition and created ascusation.

In spilo of the admitted snobbery of Wash

period over Mexico in tho early part of the
century. Tho club pcoplo aic reticent as to

those cases the Senators will either succeed
themselves, or else their successors will bo of
tho same party affiliation, the case of Mr.
Pritchard, of North Carolina, alono being
doubtful. In addition to this, at least two
Democratic Senators already know that they aro
to be superceded by Republican, Mr. Foraker
coming from Ohio iu tho placo of Mr. Briee,

Tltoro was quito a little ruction in tho Son
ate last week-over tho discovery of an attempt
by the aitist who is painting the friczo around
tho insido of tho domo of tho Capitol to intro
duce a picture of President Cleveland into his
work. This was insufferablo toadyism. The
friczo contains no picturo of any Fresideut,
aud after omitting to represent Lincoln sign
ing the Emancipation Proclamation, or Grant
recoiving the surrender of Leo at Appomattox;
it was very far from tho thing to ring in Clove
land in the act of opening an Exposition. Sen
ator Uawley and others wore properly severe
upon tho scheme, and slow it outright.
AGAINST THE CLAIMS.
The President last week vetoed tho General
Deficiency bill. In the accompanying message
he said :
"Tho hill appropriates $1,027,314.09 for a
partial payment upon claims which originated
in depredations upon our commcrco by French
cruisers and vessels during tho closing years of
the labt century. They havo hecomo quito
familiar to those having Congressional experi
ence, as they havo been pressed for recogni
tion and payment, with occasional intervals of
repose, for nearly 100 years.
'Those claims aro based upon the allegations
that France, being at war with England, seized
and condemned mauy Americau vessels and
cargoes, in violation of the rules of Interna
tional law and treaty provisions, and contrary
to the duty sho owed to our country as a
neutral power and to our citizens; that, by
reason of theso acts, claims aroso in favor of
such of our citizens as wero damnified against
the French nation, which claims our Govern
ment attempted to enforce, aud that in con
cluding a treaty with Franco in tho year 1800
these claims wero abandoned or relinquished
iu consideration of the relinquishment of cer
tain claims which Franco charged, against us.
" Upon theso statements it is insisted by thoso
interested that we, as a Nation, having reaped
a benefit iu our oscapo from these French dc
rauuds against us, through tbo abandonment of
the claims of our citizens against France, tho
Government becamo equitably bound as be
tween itself and its citizens to pay tho claims
''I do not understand it to bo assorted that
there exists any legal liability against tho
Government on account of its relations to theso
"I think it will bo found that in all bills
proposed for the payment of these claims tho
sum to ho appropriated for that purpose did not
exceed $o,00Q,000. It is now estimated that
thoso already passed upon, with thoso still
pending for examination in tho Court of
Claims, mayamouut to $25,000,000. This in
dicates cither that tho actual sufferers or thoso
nearer to them in time and blood than tho
pi escut claimants under-estimated their losses
or that there has been a great development in
the manner of their presentation.
"The appropriations to indemnify against
insurance losses rest upon weaker grounds, it
seems to me, tlnui thoso of owners, but, in tho
light of all the facts and circumstances sur
rounding theso spoliation claims, as they arc
called, none of them, in my opinion, should be
paid by the Government."
Tho bill was vetoed because of other features
objectionable to tho chief magistrate.

A VETOED PENSION BILL.
Tho President, in returning the other day
to Congroo9 tho bill granting a pension to Helen
M. Jacob, sets out his ol'jcction to allowing
pensions to widows of soldiers who remarry.
"There is do duty or obligation duo from
the Government to a soldior's widow except it
be worked out through tho deceased soldi or.
She is pensioned only because ho served his
country, und because, through his death, she
as his wife lost his support. In other words,
Sho becomes a beneficiary of tho Government
because sho is a soldier's widow. Whon she
marries again and thus displaces tho memory
of her soldier-husband and surrenders all that
belongs to soldier widowhood, sho certainly
ought not, on the death of her second husband,
be allowed to claim that she ia again tho sol

A bo3t of forgot-nie-uot3 to trim a butter
colored straw hat. ia a pretty combination for
a dainty lady.
An old, old fashion of nsing very narrow
black volvct ribbon iu several rows to trim
white net rufiles is finding somo favor again.
Wo have continually to report that black and
white is a fashionable combination. People
novor seem to weary of it.
A gracoful frock, taken from Harper's Bazar,
can bo copied in Summer silk, trimmed with
laco and having the full vest of lace trimmed
mullo or chiffon or a crepo skirt and silk
jackot may be combined with Boft front. A
dainty arrangement now this year is to havo a
jacket of fiowcrod silk, to wear with a plain
skirt of silk or fine light wool, exactly match
ing tho darkest color in tho flowered material.
Grass linon may also bo employed for this
frock, though it is not so very satisfactory for
a tight-fitting bodice.
A bicycle of tho best make is said to cost tho
roTUJufacturers only $18.60. An $80 bicyclo
only costs $10.
It is said that 1,000,000 bicycles havo been
sold to American men, women, aud children
this Spring and Summer.
Itseoms that Prosidont Cleveland has somo
objections to tho bicycle for married women,
so ho shall bo put on record with Victoria, who
expresses a most sweeping condemnation of tho
machine for femininity.
In Germany a husband, ia allowed to chastise
his wifo "mildly, so as not to permanently in
Iu Bavaria the bicyclo girl ha3 to pas3 an
examination beforo sho is allowed to rfdo on
tho public streets. Sho is required' to rido
with a crowd of othor candidates all riding
about her, and if she run into anyone or fall
off; sho may not havo a permit.
Mrs. Cba3ka, who was Cora Bello Fellows, has
boon desortcd by her Indian spouse. Their
marmso, a few years ago, mado a great sensa
tion. .Sho was a teacher out West in ono of the
Indian schools, and sho became infatuated with
the big Sioux, and married him against all
protest. Then tho two of them exhibited
themselves as curiosities in dimo museums,
and mado n comfortablo Hvolihood thereby,
lie has gone off with an Indian woman, leaving
thoir four children with hor.
Of course sho could not havo been a vory
womanly woman, though it i3 said she comc3
of an excellent family, or sho nover would
have exhibited herself as a matrimonial cu
riosity. Perhaps bIic would bavo had an un
pleasant cxperiouco with whomsoever she chose
to unite; but white women who marry Indians
seem to havo especially disastrous livos. Any
woman who marries a man unlike tho men of
her own complexion and country seems to bo
running a great risk. Our girls who marry
Germans, Italians, or Spaniards generally hav.e
unhappy lives. Idealize as one mayover theso
matches, and assort with evory breath that
Iovo is' nil, and that Iovo will overcome all ob
stacles, smooth all differences that Iovo knows
neither creed nor country these matings al
most invariably turn out sorrowfully.
Tho truo Summer girl of 1896 will havo a
duck, suit, a jacicot aud skirt, but sho gives a
daintier touch to tho garments this year-than
sho has ever before, by putting a hand of laco
insertion on tho lapels about a half inch from
tho edgo. Tho cuffs aro trimmed in tho samo
fashion. However dainty a duck' suit may bo
when it ia clean, so soon as it becomes soiled or
mussed tho least bit, it, looks exceedingly ugly.
It. must ho immaculate to be pretty; besides,, it
needs to bo done up by an expert laundress.
Altogothor a duck suit is a luxury. Duck
skirts by themselves aro moro conveniently
managed. They aro not so difficult to clean.
They look very pretty with dark jackets, so
if a girl will not bo happy without the white
skirt lot hor try it, but buwuro tho coat.
Grass-linon shoes aro cool, comfortablo, in

ful shaft of granite, near the littlo village of
Fredericksburg, and overlooking tho Rappa
hannock River. Ic marks tho grave of Wash
tou's mother. Tbo work now i3 in charge of
Miss Mary Waite, who, like her mother, has
devoted much timo and interest to it. For
years she has helped her mother, and ha3
watched tho work with hearty sympathy. Tho
next efforts of tho Association will bo to pro
cure money for an. endowment fond which
shall bo for beautifying tho grounds around tho
monument, for building a lodgofor the keepor,
and for paying hi3 salary. Tho monument is
a fitting tribute to the mother of our first
President, and tho women all over tho United
States should tako an interest in it, for it is
one of tbo most important monuments to
women in all tho world.
