themselves with the thought that New
Tork City Is ready and willing to run Its

particular election Issues from those of
the State Just as quickly as It enn get
the precious privilege.
WHAT IT MEANS.
Mr. Croker complains that he has been
pestered by reporters He refused to be
Interviewed beforo he sailed for home
on the Majrstlc. Hut he will find two dls.
tlngulshed Journalists on board, who
will faithfully represent to "The
World's" readers nn Illustrated history
of his six da)s' trip, nnd till he said or
did that Interests the people, of New
York or ran throw any light on the
mystery of his sudden going and com-Inc.
There Is a conilctlon In the minds of
our home polltlclnun that Mr. Croker
comctMo resume control of the Turn
many orgnnlratlon-lf ho enn get It. He
does not like the complexion mutters
took as soon ns he left for the Grand
Prix, nnd he feared that a still gr.imler
prlie was likely to lie lost to him nnd
his friends forever If he remained away.
HIb coming makes It more prohible
than ever that the "straight" Repub
lican ticket policy will be persevered In
by the Piatt Republicans. If Croker
con again seise control of Tammany, a
bargain can rendlly be made to give the
State to the Pluttltes nnd the city to the
Tiger. The only doubtful queitlon l.
can Croker again become the supreme
boss, and will Tammany now yield to
his rule, however closely he may have
the districts bound up under his hench
men. Cnn the district leaders prevent
an nntl-Croker revolution In the organization?
THE WORLD MOVES.
It must have given the loyal english
men In the Ilrltlsli House of Commons
a terrible shock esterday to listen to
the remarks of Mr. Kelr Hurdle, one
of the members, on the motion for a
congrntulntory address to the Queen
upon the birth of nn heir to her grand
Bon, the Duke of York.
Mr. Hardle criticised the custom re
quiring the presence of the Home Sec
retary on such occasions as one re
garded as offensive by the people.
What did the people care whether the
child was a genuine or a spurious one?
They had not such a high opinion of
the royal blood as to be anxious on
this point. The Prince of Wales was
hauled over the coals as a specimen of
the quality of "heirs apparent," and
It v,as predicted that In due course of
time the child, now nn Infant, would

A motion was r..aile to stop Mr. Har

who would have thought a quarter of

HOT FIQHTINQ HOW.
The apt artist of "The nvenlng
World" pictured truthfully yesterday
the desperate position of the modern
Horatlus In his valiant effort to hold
the bridge. He was then "fighting
still;" but the end of the struggle was
evidently near. A day has made the
cartoon historical.. Before the setting
of yesterday's sun, Horatlus Hill was
driven fiom the bridge and was left
floundering In the waters of defeat,
with a majority of 40 to 21 nearly two
to one piled on his head.
Senator Horatlus Hill's final motion
to kill the Income tax was defeated
yesterday, only one Democrat besides
the faithful Murphy voting with him.
This obstruction being out of the nny.
the effort to prevent action on the tariff
now devolves on Henntor Hoar But It
Is not probable that there will be much
further delay, nnd the end seems near.
Let us hope that when It Is reached
the disfigurements of the Wilson bill
by the Senate will be at least partially
Dockmasters Monaghan and Coe,
who were Implicated In Mr. McLaren's
testimony before the Lexow Committee,
have resigned. Mayor GUroy's determi
nation that the charges preferred by Mr.
McLaren should be made officially be
fore the Dock Board, so ns to secure
the removal of the men, brought about
Monaghan's resignation yesterday. Coye

This Is a practical result due to the

Mrs. Mary Tobln, of School street,

this morning to make Inquiries for her
husband, who hns been missing from his
home for the last two weeks, Vesterdaj

bearing a New York postmark and
signed J. Dillon, stating that her hus.

and asking her to call and see him.
She was told at the hospital that her
husband had never been there. Mrs.
Tobln fears that her husband has either
met with some accident nnd Is confined
In some institution, or else he hns been
foully dealt with. There Is no reason,
she says, why he should remain away,
as his home life was happy.
He was tetnpernte nnd Industrious,

considerable sum of money with him
when he left home.

Buckridge's Alleged Double Life
Discovered by a Chili
Ho Wns Held for Trlul on Wlte No.
Charles Buckrldge. a small, red-faced
man of thirty-one years, was committed
to prison on a charge of bigamy by Jus
tice Feltnerat the Yorkvllle Police Court
to-day. The complaint wns made by
his first wife, Annie, to whom he was
married Nov. 24, 1880, and by whom he
has had six children. Only one of them
Is living. She Is n bright girl of thirteen
years, named Marlon.
Buckrldge Is a drummer for a butter
house, and gave this reason for not
coming home regularly.
In October lust, It Is alleged, he made
the aciiualntunce of Mary O'Connor,
twenty-three yenrs old, the daughter of
it druggist, doing business at Forty
second street nnd Ninth avenue.
It is stated that she was going down
to her work us saleswoman In u dry
goods house, and happened to be taken
past her stutlon. She had only four
cents with her and asked Buckrldge,

I think no perron deserves more pity than he

Is certainly one ot the saddest cases one could
possibly hear of It I were In her position, and
had proof absolute and positive of my dear one's
affection for aome one else, I would release htm
without delay. People who marry without love
match and agree with each other the same aa a
straw hat and an ulster. The best thing "C. C."
can do under the existing circumstances Is to
free her better halt from the unwelcome ties
which hold him, aa aha certainty would be
better off than ahe la now. The writer flatters
himself that his own conquest ot love was a
case ct venl, vldl, vlcl, though If he had the
slightest suspicion that his sweetheart favors
another he would Immediately withdraw and
tear her Image, no matter how dear, from his
heart, and end his days In sorrow, though In

Silk nnd lloblnrt.
I.lllputlan designers nnd clothiers are
dressing tho little highnesses In colored
silk anmps and nit gon. Tho net Is
Ilk, the old-fnshloncd boblnet. In weave,
but the thread Is coarse, making a cool,
nlry and rather durable dress. The fash
Ion Is to hae the skirts touch the
groumj, but wls3, kind mothers will be
out of fu3hlon whenever the child's com

Cream ono cup of butter; add two
cups of sugar nnd beat to a cream;

eleen eggs beaten very light and three

AVnshliiR nnd ClennlntT Gloves.
Tho so-cnlled vashlng gloves are an
excellent choice for utility purposes all
Summer, as they cnn be cleaned once
and again by washing them In water
that Is more than warm, but not scald
ing hot, using n bit of pure white soap
In the process It Is best to wash them
Upon the hands, as the chamois Is less
likely to bhrlnk In drying. Wash and
then rinse In clear water, nnd then dry
by rubbing with a Turkish or other soft,
rough ton el For kid gloves of light
color, that are but slightly soiled but
not stained, there Is no better mode of
freshening than to wind a bit of oiled
silk around the finger, rubbing vigor
ously to remove all traces of the mark.
Any woman who tests this easy way of
cleaning kid gloves will be sure to keep
thereafter a strip of silk In her posses
sion. A qi arter, or even an eighth, of a
yard Is enough to purchase at once, as
In fancy dry-goods houses, where It Is
sold. It Is kept moist In a large roll, and
Is thus very pliable. Moisten the silk,
however, when using.
Clnm broth, which Is highly recom
mended, not only for Invalids, but aa a
steady diet for those Inclined tn grow
stout, Is made by simmering chopped
clams In their own broth with an equal
quantity of water, the broth strained
through fine muslin nnd seasoned with
pepper. If for an Invalid, hot milk may
be added when the broth Is strained.
Bene with toasted crackers.
Ileleiie of the I3ye.
When the eyes are tired, rest them.
A little suit In cool water, filtered
through filtering paper, used as a wash,
will be found refreshing, but a sea bath
or a sail Is the best remedy. Never
sit facing a strong light. Cross lights,
flash-lights and varying colored lights
weary and strain the sight. Reading In
a car Is a hublt that only the thought
less Indulge In. There Is some mysteri
ous sympathy between the head and
feet, by virtue of which a foot-bath
will often soothe aching temples and
eyes. Night work that H not absolutely
necessary Is dangerous, and the best
book thit ever was written Is not worth
reading tn a poor light.
Soak one-fourth of a box of gelatine In
one-halt cup of cold water for half an
hour. Whip one pint of cream stiff; add
to the cream two-thirds of a cup of
of powdered sugar; to the gelatine add
one teaspoonful of violet flavoring, one
half teaspoonful of vanilla, and color.
For the coloring, do as directed for Ba
varian creams. Turn Into a mould,
pack In salt and Ice for two hours, and
when ready to nerve garnish with whip
ped cream and candled violets.
The Lute Rose Terry Cooke.
The late Rose Terry Cooke was not a
favorite In the little Conectlcut town In
which she spent her life. Her sar
castic toncue was much feared and
there was always a sense of relief
when she left any gathering of women.
This unfortunate tendency Is what she
herself speaks of In one of her delight
ful stories. "Keen, practical Insight,"
she says there, "Is not the most soft
ening trait for a woman to possess.
It Is Iron and steel In the soul that does
not burn with love mighty and out
flowing enough to fuse all other ele
ments In Its own glory."

Cyclamen Is a new color which will I

brighter than the cadet blue. Pale yel- '
