A YANKEE FOR A KING.
Joseph W. Torrey, who hn jut
tiled in Boston, carried a distinguish
ed title, thnt of Kajah of Ainboug and
Mavoodu. "While a young man lie
set out to seek his fortune in Aus
tralia. From there he went to China
and absociated himself with a mer
cantile firm, having its headquarters
in Boston. He succeeded in gelling
the appointment of United (Jtatcs
Consul in Siain, and there took up
the practice of law. lie organized
an American trading company to do
business in Borneo. So pen erf ill
did the conuncrcial organization be
come, that (he Sultan of Borneo,
Abdul Muinin Elm Marhoun Mulaun
Abdul Wahan, saw Mr. Torrey had
come to stay. The Sultan's powers
w ere threatened. Jt may have boon
that Mr. Torrey's Yankee pluck im
pressed and terrified the Sultan,
and it may be that lie was won over
by the diplomacy; in either event
Mr. Torrey obtained in 18G5 a com
mission fioin the Sultan recognizing
him a Itajah or Governor of the ter
ritory operated by the American
trading company. As chief execu
tive of this province, Mr. Torrey
had absolute power, being the final
and olc authority over the life and
death of his subjects, exercising, in
short, the functions of an irresponsi
ble sovereign. He had the power
of retaining his office for life and of
naming his successor. He contin
ued his sway with eminent success
for fourteen years. By this time all
his business associates in the trading
company had died, and Mr. Torrey
sold out his interest to a syndicate
of British capitalists, who continued
developing the resources of the
country, their capital being placed
at $2,000,000. A few months ago
he returned to Boston. His abso
lute power over his Borneo kingdom
was maintained to the end, and
he could have resumed the executive
control at any time.
BONNER OPPOSES POOL SELLINC.
Robert Bonner's ofllec in the
Ledger building is comfortable and
old-fashioned, and has a very dis
tinct "horse-" character. Scores
of famous animals look down upon
him from the walls. Even his ink
stand is made of the upper jaw of a
horse. Mr. Bonner is unalterably
opposed to racing for money. Pool
selling on races, he thinks, should
be stopped. Gambling degrades
the sport and injures the horse
interests of the country. Moreover,
he is convinced that the popularity
of racing docs not, though many
assume that it does, depend upon
betting. When Eclipse and Henry
ran their great race in 1823', pool-'
selling was an unknown thing, let
00,000 persons were present at that
race, among them such men as Mar
tin Aran Buren and John Randolph.
At that time the population of New
York was not a quarter of what it is
now. Mr. Bonner said the other
day, "Pool-selling is particularly
bad. It gives the drivers an oppor
tunity to make combinations, and
do what they call 'working the pool-
box.' I his thing has gone so far
that there is hardly a race which
has not a taint of fraud about it.
Even if the race is not actually
thrown, a heat or two is dropped,
so as to fix the betting. Pool-manipulation
is killing trotting, there is
no mistake about it." Mr. Bonner
takes, naturally, a great leal of
interest in stock-breeding, and likes
to point out the progress we have
made in this business since Ken
tucky has taken the place formerly
occupied by Maine, Vermont and
New York. When Mr. Bonner
bought Dexter that horse had the
best trotting record, 2:17. Mr.
Bonner paid 35,000 for him. Then
came Barns, with a record of 2 : 13 J,
purchased for S3G,000. Finally
Maud S., with a record of 2:09J,
purchased for 40,000. It is note
worthy that there is a difference of
just four seconds between these
records, At Mr. Bonner's farm
in Westchester County somo fine
trotters have been raised. One of
them, Majolica, has a record of
2:17; Mr. Bonner believes that she
may give birth to a youngster that
will lower oven the record of Maud
S. Ho has not yet decided what ho
will do with Maud S. Boston
During a game between tho Bea
cons and the Melrose club the other
day the cry of a baby was heard in
the midst of a lull. The umpire
raised a laugh by singing out, "One
bawl!" Lovyell Courier. ,

Tho Yaqiils, that tribo of Indians
that is giving the Mexican govern
ment so much trouble, are not fight
ing for their original right of domain,
but place their claim upon a title
from the King of Spain. They do
not recognize the Republic of Mexi
co. No taxes nro levied on them,
or if levied they have not been col
lected. They aro a hardy agricul
tural race, living on small patches' of
fertile soil on tho Yaqul River. They
steal stdek when aii opportunity
offers, but have rarely in thd Inst
few years committed any tmirdcrs.
Uajcmo, their chief, is of fair educa
tion for Mexico, and is n stern ruler.
He has absolute Control oVcr them.
The nations combined number over
fifteen thousand, of which nt least
five thousand sue adult males. Their
principal nuns are bows, ' arrows,
spears, and a three-cornered blud
geon made 6f ironwood. Somo of
the arrows aro poisonous. They
also carry1 a powdered stone in small
sacks, used by them to throw in the
eyes of their adversaries.
The god of the far-shootlug bow,
while wandeiinc around one day
looking for something of that nature
to shoot at, heard a noise in the
woods, and following it up, came
upon Marsyas, the satyr, who was
satirizing a tune on the flute which
had been wisely cast away by Athene
when she went short of breath.
"Ah," said the god, beholding the
satyr, "you arc the tuner? I
thought I heard some ono tuning a
flute." "I was playing," said the
satyr, "the flute song from 'L'Etoile
duNordj' here is the score, writ
plainly, so that he who reeds may
run and thrill. 1 will play you out
to the whistling buoy and return,
single heat. Marquis of Queens
berry rules, for the gate money. Will
you toot?' inquit M. le Satyr.
Apollo respondit non, scp uuslung a
large Irish harp which he carried
in a green baize, bag, and in fewer
bars than St. John ever saw, played
the legs clear off the unfortunate
Marsyas. At the conclusion of the
contest, the victorious god flayed
Marsj'as alive and sent his hide to
Tcwksbury, Mass., to be tanned.
Foot Note. Marsyas is the
patron saint of the American people.
They love him for the enemies he
made. They too, alas, know what
it is to be skinned by the great
musicians every winter. Brooklyn
Franz Lizt, tho composer, now
seventy-two years old, draws a
regular salary as chamberlain at the
Grand Ducal Court at Weimar,
which enables him to live in modest
comfort, but exacts no work. The
pupil of Beethoven, the teacher of
Rubinstein, and tho father-in-law of
Richard Wagner, and the admired
of the entire musical world, he is
still surrounded by enthusiastic
learners, who, especially1 at his tri
weekly receptions, put themselves
to much inconvenience for tokens of
his favor. Lizt never takes pay for
instruction iir music.
