The American hog is not yet clean enough for

The peach-growers of New Jersey are plainly
a simple and unsophisticated lot, with
little of the guile which distinguishes their
brethren of Delaware. The New Jersey
peach orchards promise for tho coming
season one of the biggest crops on record,
and the Jerseymen in their simplicity are
owning up to and rejoicing over it. Meanwhile
the wily Delawareans are no doubt pronounc
ing left-handed benedictions on the slmple
eouled Jerseyites and preparing to get out their
regular spring bulletin declaring that the
peach-buds have been almost totally destroyed
One of the most gratifying features of the
long Illinois Senatorial contest which ended on
Wednesday was tho way In which the Demo
crats stood together from first to la6tiu support
of Gen. Palmer. Palmer is a man of the peo
ple, and In his selection there was no suspicion
of influences other than those which should pre
vail In the choice of a United Spates Senator.
The people of Illinois know and trust him, and
his example in stumping the State as a candi
date for Senator In the legislative campaign is
likely to strengthen the movement for the elec
tion of Senators by tho people. Already the
Cincinnati Commercial Gazette has taken the
idea up and advises Senator Sherman to follow
Palmer's example In his candidacy for reelec
tion to the Senate.
if will bo consoling to Ainerlcaus of sensitive

London last year, not one of which bad any
Those Democrats from the South and West
who did not give way to violent expressions of
hostile opinion when Mr. Cleveland sent out
his anti-free coinage letter have dally more
and more reason to congratulate themselves
that they chose the gold of silence on that occa
sion. The cry for free coinage which kept the
echoes of the Capitol throbbing all through the
session has died down almost to 6ilence. Faint
murmurs of it only are heard here and there
throughout the couutry, and even they are no
longer mingled as formerly with the loud
"aside" that his anti-free coinage letter made
Mr. Cleveland's candidacy in 1893 impossible.
It is now generally recognized that the Demo
cratic party would be making the fatal blunder
its enemies always pretend to expect of
it if it should shovo tho freo-colnngo issue
to tho front and mako the reform of tho
tariff a secondary consideration. Tho more tho
question is considered in all its bearings In tho
quiet of tho Congressional vacation, when tho
silver lobby is no longer able to intlucnco or
befuddlo tho minds of statesmen, the moro clear
it 6oems to become to Democrats who nt first
believed Mr. Cleveland had made a fatal mis
tako in writing his sliver letter that in reality
ho performed ono of tho wisest acts of his
career. Very significant, for instance, as show
ing the now feeling abroad on tho 6ubjcct of
Cleveland and his 6llver letter, Is a communi
cation 6ent by Representative "Buck" KUgoro
to the Galveston JVctw. In this, aftor declar
ing that ho finds few Hill men among Texas
Democrats, Mr. KUgoro asserts that Cleve
land is tho strongest man for tho raco In 1892
and that tho issue of tariff reform must bo kept
6tcadlly to tho frout. In conclusion ho says:
'Tho party has plenty of material from which
to select Its candidates, but Mr. Cleveland has
been tried. Ho has beon found to be true, ablo,
pure, and bravo in perfeet harmony with tbo
Democracy upon tho great and fundamental
issues upon which tho party has fought a thou
sand battles and won a thousand victories."
No better evidence of tho substantial and per
manent uaturo of tho development which tho

THE CITY POST OFFICE.
The Onlclals Having a Hard Time Trying
to Got Temporary Quarters for It.
The question of locating the temporary
quarters of the City Post Office during the con
struction of tho new building at Eleventh street
and Pennsylvania avenue is worrying Post
master General Wanamaker and Postmaster
Sherwood considerably. Bids were opened last
week for the place, the principal ones being the
Cyclorama building, a temporary structure ad
joining the market building, Fifth andK streets,
and another one on G street, between Sixth and
Seventh streets. Postmaster General Wana
maker and Capt. Sherwood Inspected the vari
ous places last week, but it is believed that
none of the sites pleased them. Capt. Sher
wood on Friday waited on the District Com
missioners to see about erecting a temporary
framo structure on the reservation In front of
the Centre Market. The present structure is
totally unfit for occupation, and the wonder Is
that the employ66 have held up so long in tho
old rockery. When the post office first took
possession the rent was $0,000 per annum, then
it was raised to $10,000, and now it said the
owners want $12,000, which is regarded as far
above Its real value. A temporary ' building
could be erected, In the opinion of the officials,
at a cost of $22,000 that would be adequate for
all purposes and in tho end would be a big
saving to the Government. The city office
people are of the opinion that they will remain
where they aro for sometime yet.
Fine ConrcRsioiiiil Timl)er.
Hon. W. E. D. Stokes, of New York, on his
recent trip to Washington, made a fine Record
as an able and apt speaker before the Senate
Commerce Committee in opposition to the New
York and Brooklyn Bridge bill. Mr. Stokes
owns property on tho New York side of the
proposed bill. Ito not only fought to protect
his own interest, but also those of the West
End Association, whom he represented. Ho
did not object to a bridge over the Hudson
River, but objected to the location selected.
His views were broad and sound; bis auguments
were pointed, concise, and forcible. Among
other things ho said: "Nothing has changed
the movements of men, commerce, and Industry
bo much as railroad lines. They have become
lines of civilization and of thecrystallzatioD of en
ergy, wealth, and growth, and they guarantee the
existence of this free country. Every pulsation
of thought starting hence to-day is answered
from tho outside bounds of the country to-morrow.

and the final triumph and completion is the
connection to be made by tho bridge over the
Mr. Stokes succeeded in his mission and re
turned Immediately to New York. In appear

Ho would do honor to any section as a repre
sentative Jn the halls of Congress.

taken to tho corner. A rope was provided and
tied around his neck and the people pulled him
up to tho cross bars. Not satisfied that ho was
dead, a scoro of men took aim and poured n

hours tho body was loft dangling in tho air.
Bagnotto was caught In tho first rush up

tho community. Sellgman has also been expelled
from the Young Men's Gymnastic Club.
DEPLORABLE BUT JUSTIFIABLE.
A meeting of tho Cotton Exchange was called
to order at 1:80 o'clock P. M. by President Chaf
fee, who stated that he had been called upon by
a large committee of members with the request
that he convene the institution in general meet
ing for the purpose of adopting a suitable reso
lution indorsing tho action of the citizens of
New Orleans in the deplorable event of tbo
morning. Mr. Chaffee said that inasmuch as all
were familiar with the events it was not neces

and they knew the necessitv of tho Rltnnt.lnn
He then caused the following preamble and res
olution to be read by the secretary:
Whereas tho deplorable administration of
criminal justice in this city, ana tho frightful
extent to which tho bribery of juries has been
carried, has rendered it necessary for the citizens
of New Orleans to vindicate outraged justice.

CAUSE OF THE TRAGEDY.
New Orleans, March 14. Tho following is
given as a clear statement of tho actuating cause
which led to the tragedy enaded this morning,
ascertained from interviews with n number of
prominent citizens, somo of them active partici
pants in the stirring events of to-day:
On October 15, 1890, about 11 o'clock at night,
D. C. Hennessy, Chief of Police of tho citv of
New Orleans, going from his office to his home,
was waylaid and shot to pieces by a band of
Italian assassins, armed with such blun
derbusses as could only have been made
and Used for the purpose of as
sassination. The indignation and excitement
were such that mob law and lynching were
about to be resorted to. The entire community
felt that in the endeavor to reach tho guilty
parties, innocent Italians might be sacrificed.
To allay excitement and to assist tho constituted
authorities, tho mayor of the city appointed a
committee of fifty representative citizens
to tako charge of the investigations of
and to aid in tho trial and conviction of
tho assassins. This measure arrested
violence. The committee entered upon Its
work and at a mass meeting subsequently held
in front of the City Hall the actions of the com
mittee were ratified and they were encouraged
to continue their labors to secure the prosecu
tion and trial by tho courts. After mouths of
preparations and a trial which continued three
weeks, and In which distinguished counsel as
sisted the ablo district attorney, a jury, charged
to have been bribed and corrupted In the face
of testimony establishing their guilt, rendered a
verdict of mistrial as to thiee assassins, Scof
fedl, Monastrio, and Polltz, aud acquitted tho
three assassins, Macheca, Marches!, and Bag
netto. Three more were on trial and were ac
quitted because of insufficient ovldonce, these
being Matranga, Incordona, aud the boy
Marches!. The acquittal of Macheca, tho
chief conspirator, and of Marches! and Bng
netto and the mistrial as to Polltz, Scoffedl,
and Monasterio fell like a thunderbolt upon
the community and impressed law-abiding
citizens with the conviction that tho law had
been violated, that tho verdict Invited assassi
nation and the engrafting of the Itaillan Mafia
upon American institutions, The feeling grew
strong that for self preservation tho people
mu6t assume the authority which they had
delegated to the courts, and which the
courts were powerless to enforce. This
feeling increased until It found vent in the
ma6s meeting this morning at 10 o'clock.
This uprising of the people to secure tho
punishments of tho assassins who struck
down their chief of police in the night time
with premeditated assassination, was orderly
and the people dispersed quietly as soon as their
work of vindication was done.
To-day's troubles recall reminiscences of a
prior crusade against Sicilians. In 1850 there
was a BIcIHan political club In existence here,
and It attempted to Interfere with the politics
of the day. In the contest between the Demo
crats and Native Americans, known
as the Know-Nothing party, tho
Sicilians were suddeuly taught a severe les
son, and very soon became apprised of the
fact that the Native American party would not
tolerate their interference. The foreigners
had at that tlmo organized down town and at
tempted to control that sectiou of the city.
Because of their numerical strength they prided
themselves that they would bo successful, but
they soon found themselves deceived. There
were frequent rows between the two parties,
and one night during an election the Sicilians
attempted to take possession of the polls. A
riot followed, and ten or fifteen of them wera
either shot or thrown into the river.
The event had a wholesome effect. It kept
them quiet until within the last few years,
DOGS OF HIGH DEGREE.
Thero Will Ho a Grcnt Array of Them nt
ft tho Bench Show.
Tho bonch show of dogs to bo held by tho
Washington Cltj Kennel Club will bo tho event
of this week. Onco a devotion to dogs was re
garded as ovidenco of a rather low tone, but
that has all changed, and now tho best and
most cultivated classes aro those among which
aro found tho most nrdent admirers of blooded
canines. At tho present tlmo It Is safe to say
that thero is almost as much money Invested In
fine dogs as in fine horses. Whon a dog is sold
for $10,000, and somo aro hold at $25,'000, this
fact is a revelation to somo people.
At tho recent show of tho Westminster Ken
nel Club lu Now York over fifteen hundred
dogs of tho highest breeding, whose total valuo
it would bo hard to estimate, attracted tho best
socioty pcoplo of tho city to Madison Square
Garden, whero they met their friends, and per
haps now aud then a foe; but they all loved tho
dogs, and those who did not lovo admired, and
those who did not aumlro wondered. Tho
grand St. Bernards all admired, and tho mastiff
greyhounds and other larger breeds camo in for
their 6hhro of admiration. But nil tho lovo of

that were on exhibition in Now York. Tho en
terprising secretary of tho club spent four duvs
in Now York arranging for the exhibit of bticjk
dogs as Sir Bedlrero, the $0,500 roueh-coat St.
Bernard; Hesper, Altou, aud Plinlimmou. Of
