Chicago, Feb. B—The meeting of the trunk
lints and their western connect which whs
held at the office of Commissioner , Fink, re
sulted, as was expected, in the announcement
that "racs must be maintained between the
west and the aboard." This is hot by any
means a new proclamation, but it has a familiar
• sound that has Lcin heard from some quarter
ever since tho east bound pool was
three months old. The mere her
alding of hucn a decision is conlidently
ospected to ac omplish the establishment of the
freight tariff frum every point in the west, and
to effectively shut off the possibility of cutting
a rate by the most expert rate cutter in the set
vice of a trunk line connection, because "the
presidents have pledged themselves to be per
sonally responsible for th<» carrying out of this
agreement," which was reached after _ due
deliberation of the entire situation, by
the august magnates jat New York.
The presidents "agreed to restore pool rates"
which were in bad shape and needed restoration.
They admit that the agreement had been vio
lated, and they again agree to maintain ratee.
If a charge was made it was strenuously denied,'
■denial being followed with an apology for hav
ing even suspected that a member of the pool
would have be2n guilty of being caught vio
lating a single provision of (he agreement.
The presidents have pledged themselves to
be personally responsible for the carrying out of
the new pooling agreement. The general mana
egers have notified their agents that ' rates must
be maintained and not a pound of an>thing
must be carried at lees than tariff." Home of the
Chicago agents seems to think
that one month of business will
give the presidents the "lump-jaw." At
the end of that time they will look over tho re
turns and woader wiieie earnings are.. They will
likely call upon the general managers to account
for the loss of business and will be respectfully
referred to the orders of Fob.l4,in which they, as
"personally responsible" parties, directed that
rates be strictly maintained. 'I his is about the
way it appears to some who are connected with
truuk lines at Chicago.
The meeting was '"to devise some means by
which ratos on freight can be effectually con
trolled," but thin ha-* been the object of almost
every meeting that has been, held by trunk lines.
A resolution wan adopted "embodying a new
agreement, which wai signed by all of the mane
agers present." i'hat is w:;ac is usually don
upon such occasions, and there ie rare y a
dissenting voice. As was suggested by a pro—L
inent railroad official yesterday, it looks as if
the met ■■< ■ had signally fail' din the objects for
which it w;t.> called and had p omulgated the

speech, has permitted magistrates to publicly
applaud the conduct of Lord llossmore, who
had been superseded as a justice of the peace for
disturbing public order at-d inciting ill-will and

the immediate abandonment of the policy of
stimulating state aided emigration of the Irish.
In the course of his remarks, with which he ac
companied his motion,Parnell asserted that the
recen: visit of Northcote to Ireland has been the
exciting cause of the civil disturbance. The
Orange outrages, in his opinion, were a grave
misfortune to the conservatives, whom North
cote had dragged at the polls, . and discredited
the Irish factions. He denounced, in strong

Carpenter — Quarrel
[T. C. Crawford in Chicago News.]
Mr. Elaine, the other evening, gave some
interesting information about his habits of
working. Before entering public life he was
a trained writer. in congress .he acquired
great skill as an orator,' and developed an
extraordinary ability, for expressing himself
in the best possible manner upon the very
shortest notice. One would think that his
skill as a ready talker on his, feet would make
his work easy in preparing his book. With a
good secretary, one might imagine that he
could readily dictate every one of the chap
ters of the book.
Mr. Blame says, however, that he is able to
dictate to an advantage only where the
chapteis in his book partake of the narrative
form. For anything beyond that be is
obliged to sit down and labor with his brain
and his good right hand. He says that he
does not believe that any work of high
literary excellence can be accom
plished by dictation. He says that in writ
ing there are three sentinels standing guard
over the brain. The two eyes and the hand
are between the brain and any crude form of
expression. These restraints have a constant
tendency to check faults and to polish meri
torious sentences. When a writer dictates
there is no special stimulus to high effort and
there is no restraint. -
Mr. Blame was asked how he accounted for
the fact that in his speeches his English was
always of such a high order. Under excite
ment, and speaking apparently without
restraint, his sentences are clear, vigorous,
and models for their clean simplicity. Is
not speaking of this kind dictation? Where
is the restraint as to the choice of forms?
Mr. Blame said that there was all the dif
ference iii the world between speaking to an
audience and dictating to a secretary. The
audience was in itself a restraint upon a
speaker. That mysterious something, known
as the magnetic influence, existing always
between a man who can move an audience
and those addressed is the controlling influ
ence which shapes thoughts and forms sen
tences. No man can produce a real im
pression upon an audience without establish
ing this magnetic sympathy. The absence of
this sympathy betrays the dull speaker. ' A
man who is incapable of moving an audience
could probably dictate as well as be could
write. But, after all, it would be the out
pouring of mere words.
Mr. Blame said that he never hoped to at
tain in his writing anything like the excellence
of style reached by him in the intense ex
citement of public speaking. In hi 3 work
upon his book he does not average over 1,000
words a day. He thinks this is all that any
man should try to do who aims at excellence
in purely literary work. Some days ho has
gono much above this, but he is quite content
if he can only maintain his average.
Of all the debates in which Mr. Blame has
taken a conspicuous part, the one in which
he takes the most pride is the Geneva award
debate. He made an exhaustive study of all
the documents bearing |upon this case, and
looked up clearly all the law points bearing
upon the same. Nothing shows more thor
oughly the versatile powers of his mind than
his ability to master all the legal technical
ities of this intricate case. Most of the
lawyers in the senate bad given the
subject but casual attention. Mr. Blame
had thoroughly equipped himself for the
very purpose of having a bout with the great
senate lawyers. He specially desired a bout
with Thurman, Edmunds, Conkling and David
Davis. But the keen-witted lawyers of the
senate soon saw that Blame was well armed,
and so they assumed a position of lofty con
tempt, not condescending to argue legal
points with a non-professional. Matt Car
penter and Thurman, however, were drawn
into the debate. David Davis, to avoid
Blame, fled to the cloak-rooms.
Matt Carpenter, a trained legal athlete,
was set up to administer a lesson to Blame,
but, as Carpenter afterward said, he had all
he wanted to do to hold his own. Carpenter
said that Blame's impudence in assuming a
superior knowledge of the law in that case
was so overwhelming that he could hardly
meet him. Carpenter did more, however,
than any other senator could have done. He
maintained throughout the most thorough
good-nature and self-possession. He even
laughed outright, with genuine amuse
ment, where almost any other man would
have boiled over with indignation at Blame's
Blame's great object in the debate, how- '
ever, was to draw out Conkling, his ancient
enemy. If be could have succeeded in that
he would have been perfectly satisfied.
Conkling all that day sat at his desk, ap
parently engaged in writing. He rarely, if
ever, lifted his head. Some of the time when
Blame was speaking he was not over two
I feet away from Conkling. Blame's oratory
volleyed to the right and left of the New
York senator without producing the slightest
ifnpression. Gen. Garfiold came in from the
house during the discussion and took a seat
directly behind Conkling. He noticed that
he was writing very steady. He wheeled
his chair in such a position that he
could look over Conkling's shoulder. He was
curious to know if Conkling was really, writ
ing. He leaned over, apparently to reach for
a paper, and in so doing took a good look at
Conkling"s manuscript. He found that he
was not really writing a word, and the neat
manuscript piled up on the desk, to use a
stage expression, was mere "property" writ
ing. Yet Conkling kept up this fine bit of
acting all day. At one stage of the episode
Thurman came over and tried to get Conk
ling to "go for that fellow," as he designated
Blame. Conkling declined, saying that he
could not on account of his peculiar situation.
It really is an absurdity that Conkling and
Blame have never spoken since the days of
their foolish, hot-headed quarrel when they
were young men in the house. The memory
of all the feeling that existed at that time has
long ago died out. These men have jostled
against each other almost constantly in t'ueir
public and social careers. It has been much
more awkward to maintain this long silence
than it would have been to speak and ignore
the past. There has never been any need for
a formal reconciliation. If the difference be
tween them had not acquired the dignity of
age and attracted unusual attention through
their prominence, it must have fallen long
ago. < r .
It is not generally known that Mrs. Conk
ling never fails to call upon Mrs. Blame when
she is in Washington, and that Mrs. Blame
promptly returns her calls. Mr. Blame has
repeatedly met Mrs. Conkling out in society,
and has often talked with her when her hus
band was present.' Upon one occasion, at a
dinner given in this city, Blame was asked to
give Mrs. Conkling his arm to take her out to
dinner. He did so, and in the ar
rangement of the. guests lie sat di
rectly opposite Conkling. He talked with

How the Scheme for the Bartholdi
Statue Orizinated. ' . "• ;
[Cor. Pittsburg Telegraph.]
It is not generally known how the scheme,
for a colossal statue of Liberty originated. It
was about fifteen years ago whenM. Bartholdi
came to this country for tho first time, bring
ing letters with himfromEdouard Laboulaye
and other good friends of union between
France and America. One of the persons to
whom M. Bartholdi went upon his arrival
here was Miss Booth, well known as a trans
lator of books by La!x>ulaye, as one of the
first historians of our city, and as the editor
of Harper's Bazar. M. Bartholdi presented
to Miss Booth his conception of a colossal
statue, which might stand permanently as a
mark of French brotherhood with the United
States. ■He said, moreover, that, as he was
sailing up the bay, he observed Bedloe's
island, which seemed to him the right place
for such a statue.
M. Bartholdi's scheme—which came, of
course, to the knowledge of many per
sons—was discussed industriously, and the
upshot wait that the sculptor returned to his
country with certain definite intentions. At
that time Bartholdi had an excellent reputa
tion as a sculptor and architect. He had done
some brilliant work, and he was regarded as '■
an artist of singular promise. He had also
accomplished more labor on a large and
even colossal scale. M. Bartholdi's plans
for a liberty statue were completed during
the emperorship of Napoleon 111. Then
came the war with Prussia, which put a
stop to his undertaking. It was after
the war, when the French republic was
firmly established, that the sculptor took up
his scheme again and gave publicity to it.
He asked the French people to subscribe for
the statue. The French people subscribed
readily, one might almost say sou by sou.
Then M. Bartholdi turned his sight to our
own country, and asked us to subscribe for a
pedestal, on which the statue could be
placed. That was several years ago. We
have not yet subscribed the amount which is
needed for the pedestal.
Why the Hired fSirl Turned the

Astonishing Tricks With Cards-—
Something Very Much lake
[New York Sun.]
"How much can you influence any oneF
"I will show you the whole extent of my
power, or any other man's, in this respect,"
said the professor, taking a pencil from his
pocket. He borrowed a visiting-card from
one of the party, held it under th 3 table, and
wrote a figure on it. Then he folded it up
until it was like a ball, and tossed it across
the table to tbe writer.
"Put that piece of paper in year pocket,
please, an 1 button your coat over it. Now
I'll tell you what I propose to do. Give me
another card. Observe, I write on this card
a series of numbers. It doesn't make much
difference how many. They are:
5, 1, 3, 0, 2, 4, 7*9, S.
"Now, I propose, by an effort of my mind,
to make you select the number from this list
which is written on the foleed card in your
pocket, and which you have not seen. Take
the pencil and card," tossing, them across the
table, "and cross out one of those numbers.
Look me in the eye for a moment. Now I"
The writer deliberately chose the figure 4,
and was about to cross it out when he sud
denly resolved to take the 7. He changed his
mind again, and abruptly drew the pencil
through the figure 2. -.' -
'•Take the card out of your pocket, please,
and open it."
When the card was unfolded the figure 2
was written in the middle.
"I don't claim that I can do that every
time," said the professor, taking no notice of
the amazement of the others, "but it seldom
fails. Sometimes I have the subject cross
out three figures at a time. This is done
twice, and leaves three more if nine are writ
ten. Then I let him cross out two more, and
the one left standing is the one in his pocket.
There is small trickery about it."
He then, at their request, tried the experi
ment on the other five members of the party.
He was successful in every instance.
"That is all there is of spiritualism or mind
reading," said he; "the rest is simple trickery
like this." As he spoke he stretched one hand
across the table, gently took a two-dollar bill
from the hand of a waiter who was handing
it in change to one of the party, anil crumpled
it up in bis hand, which he still held 'over the
table.. Then be showed it to the man, and it
was changed to a 830 bill. Goldberg tossed
it to him, and be at once thrust it into bis
pocket with the remark that he was §1S
winner. ';" -.
"Are you sure?" asked the professor.
"Of course. I know when I put a $20 bill
in my pocket."
"It's asl bill,"' .said the professor, quietly.
"The original $2 bill is in the celery glass." "
The man pulled out the bill, found it was
•sl, threw it across to the professor, pulled the
$2 out of the celery glass, and gasped:
•'Whore's that twenty?"
"Here in my hand."
"Well, motion is quicker than sight."
. "Wrong again. Motion cannot be quicker
than sight. The reason you don't see me sub
stitute one of those bills for another is because
I distracted your attention at the instant I
made the change. Show us a poker hand if
, you've got cards with you."
"I haven't any. I left mine at the club."
A pack was procured by the waiter, who
regarded the magician with awe, as he said:
"Very many poker players, men of the world
at that, do not believe that one expert card
sharp could go into a party of four or five
honest players and cheat them without dis
covery. Now I'll deal four hands."
He shuffled the cards in a number of ways,
but always; so far as appearance went, very
honestly. He then asked the man on his
riylit to cut them, and had them cut once
more 'for purity's sake" by another player.
Then he dealt them around, one at a time, to
our playei-s, including himself, and the other
players picked up their cards.
"Gad! I'd like to play this hand," muttered
the first man. .
"I could down you," said the second man, ,
with an important scowl.
The third was the expression of a man
who looks down upon his fellows, as he re
marked : "I'd bet everything I could win on
this." " '
Meanwhile the professor had slipped into
his top coat and was drawing on his gloves.
The first had three kings and a pair of queens,
the second four aces and a king, and a third
a straight flush, nine high, an almost in
-What's yours, professor?"
The magician turned up the winning hand
a ten -high straight flush.
"Beware of card-sharpers, gentlemen," lie
said, with a smile, and strolled away.
A Somnambulistic Ilottseboy.
' ■ [Cor. New Orleans Times-Democrat]
Personal experience and relations are, by
the rule, as tiresome as a '49 Californian
whose tales are not half told until they reach
the 7,000 th recital. But I came upon a hap
pening an hour since which would have been
a study to Macnish.
A houseboy, who has done little else since
he was born but breathe and sleep,, was sit
ting by the kitchen fire, sleeping with greater
intensity than* usual, since he had an over
dose of New Year's. He was ordered to re
plenish the fires; he moved a little in his
chair. ft On a repetition of the order, he arose
slowly, walked out to a table upon which lay
a couple of hats. He picked up one and
moved it about in his hand, as though it dis
pleased him: he laid it down, and took up
the other. He started out with it, passed
through the stable, uncomfortably close
to the rear of a horse, whose frisky h»«ls
had yesterday "scarified him most to death," as
Mrs. Malaprop lately remarked. Reaching
the coal-house, he carefully filled the hat and
returned by the same path, tempting those
aching equine heels by brushing past in coax
ing nearness. Entering the house, he went
directly to the table and emptied the hut
upon it; shaking it well out, ho returned it to
the position in which he found it. He then
went to his kitchen chair, sat down and con
tinued his sleep.
I leave to a Macnish or Binns to trace jut.
the nice relations of the senses in this semi
conscious condition, when by the ideas illus
trated certain faculties are dormant in pro
found sleep, others open to impressions, and
actuated by volition. The phenomena may
be an acted dream, a .delusion, and that
which is seen, heard or done is the mere em
bodiment or repetition of former impressions
or impulses ac the time before the mind. The
hypotheses differ among thinkers. But Dr.
Mayo counts somnambulism within the
bounadry of disease. For a study, lam will
ing to lend the boy.
The reason kissing is so pleasant, says an
oscillatory expert of scientific tendencies, is
because the teeth, jawbones "and lips are full
of nerves and when the lips of persons meet
an electric current is generated.—[Yonkers
Yes, and it's so confounded cheap. You
don't have to have a dynamo machine, nor a
battery in the house, nor a call box, nor a but
ton to touch to ring up the central office, and
there is no patent on it. and the poorest per
son in the world can 'enjoy.the electric cur
rent better than the millionaire, and it never
gets out of order. ' It' Edison had invented
kissing it would cost $100 a year, like the tele

charged up extra, and if you didn't pay for
it they would take out your kiasaphone arid
