I'reemont Cole The Next Legislature.
Albany, Nov. 21. Tho politicians ond cor
porations are very uitich exorcisod just now
trying to find out who will bocoino Speaker
of tho Houso nml President of tho Senate
Tho candidates for both houses aro few and
select. If it was left to tho politicians Mr.
Uusted would not bo soloctcd as Bpcakor.
His willingnoss to plcaso overybody boforo
tho session of tho Legislature, when votes
wero neoded, was only overcomo by his will
ingnoss to plcaso nobody afterwards.
To tho corporations, howovor, Mr. Hustcd
sings a different tuuo. Ho is their friend,
their ally, their guide, ilo dovotcs all his
timo to assuaging their grievances, legisla
tively Bpcaking ; ho can roly upon moro of
them for assistance than any other man in
tho State : ho is ready at all times to con
tribute his influence, his voice, his voto and
his friends to help thoir causo along.
Husted has been Speaker of tbo Hon bo flvo
times. If ho is elected this winter ho will
brenk tho rooord. Last year ho succeeded
himself and did not ank for a voto. Ho
promised tho Piatt pooplo that he would voto
for Lovi P. Morton for United States Senator.
It was this promise that securod his election
un Hpeaker. But he votod for Warner Miller
for Senator. It was his voto that defeated
Mr. Morton. Piatt waB mad enough, and de
clared then that so long as ho had any influ
ence he would sling it against Husted. That
timo has now como. Piatt's sling consists of
Fromont Colo, a youthful but bearded barriB.
ter of Schuyler County. Colo was Piatt's
candidnto for Speaker last year, but brought
his boomlut to Ilusted's feet.
Out of tho sovonty-two llepublicnns in tho
now Assembly, Colo claims forty and so does
Hustcd. Colo is drumming up his forces in
person and Husted is operating through
emissaries of the New York Central Bailway,
who are at work in every district represented
by a llepubllcan. Colo's friends recently at
tempted to work a llttlo Bchcrno by doclaring
thnt Piatt and Hiscock had started in on a
war of extermination against Husted and his
WestcheBter coadjutor, Judge llobertson. It
brought Hustod several votes unsolicited.
Cole has much to liarn in politics and will
know moro after tho Speakership canvass
closes. As for Hustod, ovory trick, device,
manoeuvre and flncsso known to politics and
legislative operations hn is the master of.
Tbo Senato dcoutcsts opond upon tho
Speakership fight. Hero aro the com
binations: Anti-Platt For Speaker, James
William Husted, of Westchester: for
President pro torn., William Henry
ltobortson, of Westchester. It is Wcst
chostcr agalnBt Piatt and the Stato.
Bare, indood, in tho history of tho Stato, has
ono county displayed tho temerity to ask tho
Legislature for the presiding officers of both
houses. Tho Piatt candidates aro: For
Speaker, Fremont Colo, of Schuyler; for
President pro tent., Jacob Bloat Fassett. of
Chomung, or Henry It. Low, of Grnnco. Tho
latter combination stands to win at this mo
ment, but Westchester promises aro budding,
Fassett is the fatorod of Piatt. Fassett
married the millionaire dauchtor of million
niro Crocker, and is a millionaire himsolf.
Ho posoB as an editor among lawyers and as
a lawyer among editors. Ho is a fluent talker
and is never backward in boring the Senato
with several half-hour spoeches ovory dny.
Judge Low wan in the Sonate whop Fassett
was in his swaddling clothes. Next to Judge
HobertBon and Col. Murphy ho has seen more
publio Borvice than any member of tho next
Houso. Mr. Piatt supported him for tho
position two years ago, but is unwilling to
repeat the experiment now. The Judge has
received assurances of support from more
than half of tho Piatt Senators of tho next
Outside of tho honor of tho position there
will be but llttlo honor in presiding over the
next Sennto. It will bring together n pretty
bad agglomeration of politicians. The pres
ent Senate is bad enough, but it is a pure and
virtuous body compared with that which will
begin active operations on the Sd day of Jan
uary, 1888. Lobbyists, Btrlkers, political
hacks, hirelings and serfs constitute the most
prominent members on tho Itepublican sido.
Tho Democrats aro in a very small minority,
smaller than for many years, but intellectu.
ally thoy are in splendid shape in both
houses. There will bo plonty of voung
blood, too. With Cantor, Ives and lteilly the
intoreBts of New York will bo well looked
aftor, whilo for parliamentary sparring the
veterans Murphy and Pioroo will tako ad
vanced positions. Cantor, as deputy leader
of the Lower House for two years, is expocted
to go tho front rank in tho Senato.
In the Houbo, William F. Shoehan, the
brilliant yonng Buffalo lawyer, partner of
sAttorncy-Ooneral.oloct Tabor, will keop tho
Mty-flvo Democrats in line. Mr. Sheehan
has dovoloped great powers as a leader dur
ing tho past two years and is regarded as ono
of the rising Democrats of tho State.

HOW MRS. OLBYELANDANSWERB LETTEEa

From Barptit Jia&ar.
Mrs. Cleveland, on htr return from her long trip
In October, lott no time In resuming many of the
duties tbat fall to her lot at mistress of the White
House, or which the hat established the practice of
discharging, among them the telMmposcd task of
answering, so far at the ctn, the pile of letters
addressed to her, which had accumulated during
her three weeks' absence. Of conn, there tre
lettert directed to her which the never sees. It
speaks volumes In proof of tbo number of appli
cants to the President and hit wife for money that
It lui been found nccosary to have lithographed a
formula of reply to letter making such requests,
to be sltrned, filled up, and forwarded by one of
the clerks. The letter (lithographed, with names
and datea only written to tult each case) reads
about as follows :
Kxtctmvx Mansion, WAtninaToir, D. O.
Mr. (Mn.)nr(Mlu) i
Ynur lettr of to Mr. Cleveland has bn
nnwned by m. In view nt tha Impracticability of th
1'rpnldentor Airs. Clove-land renpondln to the numnrous
claim mad upon thftlr generosity, I hav thought it
beat nut to oall your lettr 1 1 her attention.
Very reipectf ully,
It It a rnle, rarely If ever broken In any of the
department and bureaus of tho Onvcrnment at
Washinuton, at well a In the Executive Mansion,
that all letters received which do not in themselves
vlolato the rules of courtisy shall bo answered la
toiue manner, even If only to acknowledge the fact
that they were received.
Mrs. Cleveland, on whom no official obligations
rest, voluntarily follows thla rule of replying to
all the lettert the receives so far as It po'.iiule.
Hnc Is very prompt, too, In writing her antwert to
letters whenever practicable, and hat remarkable
facility In expressing herself In a few words,
while teeming to aay all that Is necessary. Her
handwriting, while as styllah In appearance at
tbat of the ultra-faahlonablo qulll-pen-aflectlng
scrawlers. It atlll (unlike that of the ladles of that
class) perfectly legible. She docs not lay herself
open to tho iharge a bright man recently pre
ferred against the fashionable women whose
writing no ono can easily read, It at all to wit,
that, " cot knowing how to spell, they purposely
write to that their failures In orthography cannot
bo readily detected. "
A gentleman who wat taken through the White
House by Mr. Cleveland last winter taw her pri
vate des. piled high with lettert tbe had received,
and said to her:
"Surely you don't expect to answer all of
" Indod I do," the repondcd. "All these per
sons have written to me In good faith, and aro
doubtless excellent people, who will appreciate a
reply directly from me. I wouldn't nurt tholr
feelings or disappoint tbem for tho world."
The official note-paper uted In the President's
offlcei bat "Executive Manalon, WaahUwloo,"
printed In small blue lettert at the head of the
paper; and on the upper left-hand corner of the
envelope, beneath "Executive Mansion," In the
same characters at on the note-paper. It the word

Hncred Ho, Probably the Oldest Tree In the

From th London Athtnaum.l
Your Buddhist readers will receive with dismay,
is will others with concern, the new which last
mall brings from Ceylon. Tbe sacred Bo tree of
AnurAdhapura, tho most ancient and authentlo
rello of Gautama, and probably the moat aged tree
In the world, hat been shattered In a ttorm.
The feats, at related by more than one local cor
respondent of tbe Colombo newspapers, aro as
follows: The d'strlot of Anuradhapura suffered
this year, as It frequently does, from a continuous
drought of eight months. Outhe 4thofOctooer
the inhabitants wero bluden by beat of tom-tom to
atsemblo at the Bo tree and pray for rain. The
tame night, apparently before tho Invocation, tho
storm broke with violent wind, lightning, tbunder
and rain. The main branch of the sacred tree was
severed, leaving only a stem of four fet; but
whether Ibis Is in height or in circumference it not
What remains of our present Information may be
of Interest to students of ritual, Tbe Bo tree It a
seml-Bentlent being; It It "worshipful" and
" over victorious. " wherefore, when a part of It
dies, it receives last rites similar to those paid to
klnga and priests, the molt honored of mankind
It la cremateO. This ceremony took place with full
honors on Oct. 8. Early In tbe morning two men
called kapuwa ("cutters"), arrayed in suits of
black, arrived at the tree. ' They covered up
their moutht with black handkerchiefs, tying tne
enda at the back of their heads, and with a
small cross-cut saw divided the broken
brauoh." Two tom-tom beaters snpplled
the mualo of their craft while the ceremony
riroceeded. The branch wat then tawn

procession) to the Thuparama Dagoba, where the
cremation of tbe local chief prlcstt it wont to be
held, 'lhs ashes were reverently carried to tbe
tank of Tlsawewa, hard by, and there dissolved.
Le Hot eslmurt, vtveleltull tbe remnant of the
tree now received lit appropriate treatment.

How n Celebrated Actor lined tn l'lay Prac

M. Franclsque Sarccy, in his last dramatic chro
nlque In tbe Temps, says the actor's art It far less
the frnlt of Inspiration than the result of study and
practice, and In support of his thesis ho relstcs
two amusing anecdotes In tbe life of Frederick
Lemaltro. It appears that whenever this great
French actor had a new role to play he Invariably
fried It on the public In the cvery-day course of life
before acting It on tbo stage. Ono day he was
travelling In a crowded stage-coach when the Idea
struck him to rehearse a scone In which he wat to
personate the part of a sick man. Suddenly his
vlsago became, ut It were, decomposed; his eyes
grew dim: his arms dropped down motionless; nla
body doubled up, and be sighed and groaned moil
hearirondtngly. All his felluw-travclert regarded
blm with fear ant trembling; some thought no was
seized with black cholera, and on the point of
death; the coach atoped, and he was about to be
removed to tht nearctt doctor, when Lemaltre,
Judging that he bad gone quite far enough, and
delighted with his success, gradually became him

the secret of his Illness.
On another occasion he Indulged In a similar re
hearsal at the Cafe des Varloiis, but this timo ho
nearly got Into hot water. He entered tbo caf6,
swaggering like a bully, and after gazing at all f.o
customers with contempt stopped at a table whore
a young officer and his wlfo were sitting. Here
hit bearing became so Insolent that everybody
protested, tnd called on the landloid to turn Mm
out. The young officer, pale with rave aud Indig
nation, rushed at him, and demanded an explana
tion. Suddenly Lemaltre avalu changed hit ap
pearance. He wat no longer tbe Cam. Fracaa.e
of a few mlnutet previous, but a condrmed Idiot,
unconscious of what ho bad done. Tbe officer
shrugged hit shoulder! In pity and resumed hit
seat, while the actor, taking the next tuble, sat
down like an ordinary customer, ordered some
coffee, and proceeded to read tbe pipers at If

beverages, thin bread and butter, rolled or cat
into tiny three-cornered sandwiches, sbould be
provided, or, II these consume too much time In
the preparation, finger rolls will tntwer tbe pur

assortment of light cakea, tbat maybe either of
home manufacture or purchased ut a confection

be requested to preside over the teapot and the
coffee-urn, and half a dozen young gins invited to

pleasant selection of gustls, the success of the tea
sbould be assured.
