'Tvvas tho Post Thomson who sang of " A

mighty monarchies." It wns this Bamo chance,
or rnthor a comhinatiou of chances, which
lmvo decided the fato of tho lnt week of tho
Antl-Povcrty 1'uir, at tho Madison .Square
Garden, though nono of those who ore Inter
ested In tho success of the enterprise are
willing lo acknowledge that tho chanco in
this instance are lucky. They rather .con
sider them as thoso of which Othello dis
coursed to tho fuir Dckdciuonu, ".Most disos
trous." Unfiles, roulctto and random purchases,
combined with the desire of foolish man to
get a return of profit fabulously in excess of
tho amount wariunted by his investment,
lmvo proved tho greatest source of income ou
this occasion, as thev have at every fair, and
especially thoio gotUn up for church char
ities, Tho pollco havo buptiressed these devices
this woek and the result is most noticeable
It wai confidently und borrow fully ex.

ceititfl on Monday night, under the new
order of things, wonld fall off one-half, but
as a matter of fact they wero two-thirds as
much as tlto average for all previous nights.
They had " giaspcd the skirts of happy
chance," but they wcro hardly able to
" breast tho blows of circumstunco" Inilictcd
by tho .Society for tho Prevention of Vico,
whoso officers placed their interdict upon
what they tormed gambling.
Mayor Hewitt is held responsible by the
leaders for thiB interference with tho meth
ods of tho fair, and tho women aro portion
larly bitter In their, denunciation of him.
Last night one of 'the ladles said to another:
" I saw that sneaking detectivo who inado all
tlio troublo for us orouild to-night."
"Dad scran him I "Whero is ho? Let's
mob him." replied the one addressed.
" No; let's vote him this picture of Mayor
How itt for his pains," said a third, pointing
to tho donkey to which ho many have
attempted to attach a caudal oppeudago with
out success since the fair was opened.
Mayor Howitt is running a hot race with
Archbishop Corrigau for tho US-cent um
brella to bo voted fo tho most unpop

ititcrferenco. Tho llev. Dr. Howard Crosoy,
Mgr. Preston and Joseph J. O'Donohuo
havo been added as candidates in this con
test. To still further illuhtrato tho feeling that
exists there aro beveral placurde displayed.
Ono on ii pilo of books, formerly dibposed of
by tho random purchase scheme, reads: " In
consequence ot tho tender conscience of
Mayor Howitt having been outraged by the
manifest success of our fair, wo are com
polled to sell out, regardless of cost, lest His
llouor's rest may bo broken by tho sweeping
triumph of our principles."
An old lady camo into tho Garden at about
9 o'clock last night, and, stepping up to Mr.
McCabo, at the Fourteenth Abbembly Dis
trict's booth, said : " I have just come from
Father Flood'h fair, whero I bought chances,
and I'm going to buy chances here. Wo've
got as much right to bell chances on things
us Father Flood."
Mr. McCabe said that thero ore n number
of Catholic church fairs in progress in tho
city and that Mr. Croasdalo had in the office
tickets for chances bought at every ono of
Despito tho injunction from tho officials

BOTH HER BTAR BOARDERS DEAD.

Few of thosa present at tho funeral of
Robert Stoepel, tho musician, which took
place from the Little Church ltound tho Cor.
ncr, noticed a plump little. French woman,
very unpretentiously clod, who bat nt tho
hack of tho church.
The llttlo lady hhed many unseen tears and
kept her handkerchief tightly pressed to her
eyes. For ninny yeurs tho old physician had
been her principal hoarder, nnd though his
appetite had been terribly fastidious, nnd
poor littlo niadamo had been forceil to exer
cise her utmost ingenuity to tempt his palate,
she wns ono of his most Rincero mourners.
The day that Robert Stoepel was buried,
by i strange coincidence, brought tho news to
this city of Mile. Aime'o's death in Paris.
Tho littlo comic opera singer was also ono of
Mndamc's boarders when in this city, nnd
with Robert Stoepel nnd Mario AimCo in her
hoUKoatthe tamo timo. the Frenchwoman
felt that sho had accomplished something.
She hod not heard of Aimco's death, how
over, when sho reached the Littlo Church
Rouud the Corner. Tho news was borne to
her by n sallow little Italinn flutibt, known in
tho theatrical orchestral world.
Madamo was utterly overcome. Sho was
French nnd sho wns overwhelmingly Bitpor
stitious. " Ah, moa Dteu I" sho cried, lenvlng the
church in haste, and sobbing as sho walked
down tho path leading to tho street, " Airne'o
aud Stoepel dead in one week! whnt will
happen. Oh I my unlucky boardlng-houRo I
I am Vuined, ruined. Everyone dies. Oh I
monsieur, turning to tho flutist, never let my
boardors know of this catastrophe. It would
kill my trade."
Tho flutist, with many promises tried to
comfort tho little woman, but in vain. Timo,
how over, socms to have accomplished what
he could not do, for yeRtcrday she was
