ter was presented to Governor Geary yester
day, the 19th instant, by an influential and
wealthy gentleman from Carlisle.
After having read it carefully the Governor
promised that he would grant a personal au

permit Dr. Schoeppe to linger in prison for an
indefinite number of years, and if he would
not release him during bis official term, Gov

circumstances." What the circumstances
were the Governor did not say.
DE. SCHOEPPE's PETITION.
Cablisle Pkison, Pa., May 17. To his Ex
cellency John W. Geary, Governor of the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg,
Pa. Sir: I beg your pardon, if I dare to in
trude upon you with a respectlul petition. It
is a wise provision of our law which imposes
upon the Chief Magistrate of this State the
supreme revision and control over the prisons
and other public institutions of . the State.
And this duty does not comprise alone the
examination of the exterior . condition of
the different prisons and their management,
but it has always been the custom of the
Governor to grant, at such inspections, an
audience to the wants and petitions of the
prisoners and inmates of these publio institu-j
tions. It is thus a duty which does not only
devolve upon the highest executive officer of
this State, but from the records of other
States I have learned that a similar condition i
prevails there, and that the . Governors of
those States are invested with a similar
According to this rule, your Excellency
has been at different times on a tour of in
spection to the prisons and other publio in
stitutions of this Commonwealth.
Although this prison is not supported di
rectly by means defrayed by the treasury of
the State, yet my case belongs directly to your
judicial record. You are my highest judge
on earth, npon whom the Constitution has
imposed the supreme revision of my case.
Frnm vnnr riamiuon there is no anneal exceDt
to God. I am, therefore, as long as I am here
confined, not only direotly and immediately
at any time at your disposition, but my con
dition is submitted still more closely to your
direct supervision and control, than of any
prisoner connnea in one oi our Dtate prisons.
T Vinn. therefore, vour Excellencv will
l-inlxr AYftnRA me if I dare to resDectf ullv ask
you to do me the favor to grant me a personal
audience, as my conaition ioroias me 10
hfrfore vou at vour residence. I take
the liberty to respectfully ask you to do me
the great favor to come and see me. I am
innocent of the heinous crime for the alleged
which I now lie under sentence
of death, and I need, therefore, not entertain
any fear or apprenen&ion to meei iaoe to iace
orith rnv InrlirpH.
I refrained from expressing this, my peti
tion, sooner, as I did not want to intrude
ttnn liivinflr the winter months, on ao
count of the vast pressure of olhoial business
by which your Excellency is at that time sur
rounded. . , , ....
Hoping that my most respectful petition
will be favorably received by your Excel
lency, I remain, with great respect, your
most obedient Bervant,

Railroad and Real Estate Securities.
If we compare first-class railroad bonds
with good real estate mortgages as an invest
ment for the people generally, each will be
found to have peculiar advantage of their
own. For example a railroad bond is readily
and always negotiable; its cash value is known
by all bankers, and hence it can be used as
collateral at bank for temporary loans; the
interest it bears is regularly and promptly
paid, without trouble or expense to the holder;
the investor in railroad bonds, unlike tbe
owner of real estate mortgages, has no anxiety
about the title to the property on which his
bond is secured, insurance on buildings, or
the annual payment of taxes, on which the
continued soundness of that title depends.
Un the other hand, it is to be admitted that
a first mortgage on valuable land is one of
the best possible securities. The property
can neither rnn away nor burn up. Its value
is not affected by speculative combinations,
nor by fluctuations in the amount of railroad
traihe. Tbe actual value of good land steadily
increases with the steady growth of popu
lation. It is because the 730 bonds of the Northern
Paeifio liailroad are both a first-class railroad
security and real estate mortgage on lands
worth twice the amount secured, that we
commend them to those of our readers who
desire an investment that is safe beyond
question, while readily negotiable and bear
ing a good rate oi interest. They are a first
lien, not only on a great railroad and its
traffic, but in addition are a first mortgage on
valuable lands at the rate of fifty acres to
each $100 of indebtedness. Add to this the
fact that the rate of interest (7 3-10 per cent,
gold) is more than eight per cent, currency,
and that the bonds are always exchangeable
at 10 per cent, premium for the lands on
which they are secured (practically giving the
power of foreclosure at will), and it is easy to
explain the high favor with which these secu
rities are now regarded. Central Paeifio
liailroad bonds, secured only on the railroad
itself, and bearing only six per cent, gold
interest, are now selling at 103, and they are
well worth the price. In the light of this
fact, it is not unsafe to predict that Northern
Pacifies, bearing seven and three-tenths per
cent, gold interest, secured both on the rail
road and on 23,000 acres of land to each mile
of track, and now selling at par, will at an
earlv day be worth T10. N. Y. Indepen

Shakespeare as am Actob. The London
Athtnaum gives the following bit of informa
tion about bbakespeare; '
"Mr. Halliwell has had the good fortune to
discover evidence that Shakespeare aoted on
two occasions before Queen Elizabeth, in the
year 15114, in company with Kemp and Bur-
tape, all three being described as 'Servants
to tbe Lord Chamberlain.' Gritioal students
of the biography of Shakespeare will at once
appreciate the significance of these interest
ing facts. The poet was tben in bis thirty
firbt year. No record of his performances as
an actor at so early a period has yet been
produced, but the ciroamstanoes of his then
being a member of the Lord Chamberlain's
company is of still greater iaterest. We
now know, what hitherto has been merely a
conjecture, that the great dramatist belonged
to that body before the Globe Theatre was
opened, and when the company were per.
forming the old play of Hamlet, the prede
cessor of bbakespeare s tragedy.
