I was n witness to tho game nnd ccrtiry to ths
truth of above. J. A. FiLCimt,
Publisher Placer Herald, Auburn, CsJ.
This Is tho story of tho game as told last
evening by Mr. Muller, No. 4, who did not gat
the pot. The Columbia had bad weather almost
from tho time sho left Southampton, and poker
Was popular. Soveral groups of poker players
formed, and ona of them was composed of the
men who had that wonderful deal. They played
together every day, quarter limit.
It was about 4:30 on Monday afternoon that
the big hands were dealt. It was raining and
the smoking room was crowded. This particu
lar game had been going on since luncheon, and
as all the men were good players and the hands
bad been running high, their table was sur
rounded by a ring of Idlers watching tho play.
The men sat In the order named In tho declara
tion. Mr. Muller had Just dealt and Mr. Stepp
was to follow. Between the deals a round of
drinks had ten ordered, and part of the liquor
bad been spilled on the discards. As he gathered
tip the cards Mr. Muller said:
"These cards are getting pretty gummy.
Here, steward, bring us a new pack.
The steward brought a now pack, still sealed,
and banded them to Mr. Stepp. He broke tho
seal, took out the joker and tore It up, and then
shuffled the cards seven or eight times. Then
he handed them to Mr, Muller to cut. Between
him and Mr. Muller sat J. A. Fllcher, the Secre
tary of the California State Board of Trade and
publisher of the Placer Ifrrald of Auburn. CaL
lie was able to see all that was going on. Mr.
Muder cut tho cards and Mr. Stepp. dealt them
There was a small pot, so small as to be almost
I tnslgniacant. It was a Jack pot. Mr.Seligman,
who had the say, opened It for a quarter and
Mr. Wilde promptly raised him, Mr. Merer
8 stayed and Mr, Muller raised Wilde, and Mr.
Btepp, Ibe dealer, raised Muller. All made good
End stayed. Messrs. Sellgman. Wilde, nnd
leyereath drew a card and Messrs. Muller and
lepp stood pat.
. Then the Iiid began. Each man thought he
hd a Isad pipe cinch, and he bet accordingly.
Everybody ralred. Mr. Bellgman smiled pity
pgly on the rest, and each of the others smiled
b a like manner. Mr. Wilde laid his cards care
jatsly on the table and studied the carved celling
if the smoking room as bo raised every time the
Ijhance came to him.
At last, as no one gave In, the players began
p regard each other with Interest, nnd won
lere'l what was going to happen. The Idlers
bonded around the table four deep. Things
began to be very lively when Mr. Stepp Inter
rupted the procee lings or asking, when U came
1 L-ound to him to raise, how much was In the
"About twenty dollars, waa ths reply.
"Well," said Mr. BtxpD. "this Is only a
friendly game, and we don t want to get too
touch money lo the pot. so I'll call."
Mr. Bellgman looked sorrowful, and said:
"We might have gone on a little longer."
I Ho laid down his three sixes nnd two aces and
put out his hinds toward the pot,
-Hold on there l" said Mr. Wilde. "It has
Ester been ray custom to bet when I dldn t bold
winning hand." and he threw down his three
sevens and two deuces.
There was a gurgle from Mr. Meyer. lis
lammed his eight full on the table, exclaiming:
"If this don't beat the devil I don't know
what will I r ve won two steamer pools and I've
tot this pot. Look at that hand!
. There was an exclamation of astonishment
from the men that were crowded around tbo
"What have you got. Mailer I" asked Mr.
Btepp, the dealer.
" J vo got nines full on fours." Muller replied,
putting down his cards.
"And I," (wild Mr. Btepp, "have got tens full
There was an expressive silence In ths saloon
for a minute. All eyes were turned on Mr. Stepp,
Who was very pale and agitated. Finally he
" Gentlemen," he said, " I won't take that pot,
I I protest that the deal was square. You saw mo
break the new park of rnrdB, shuffle them above
board; you saw Mr. Muller cut them and me
(exlthcm. But such a lot of hands I've never
leen In my life. I've never beanl of anything
like it. If I didn't see It with my own eyes I
Ibould call a man a liar who told me that such
thing bod happens 1 on a squire deal. There
fore, In Justice to me, we should have a new
A storm of protests greoted this. None of ths
players would listen to any such proposition.
"It's worth WOO to any tokcr player," said
Mr. Muller, "to bo able to say that he sat In
luch a game."
Finally every man In the smoking room was
Elled up to see the hands as they lay on the
ble, and Mr. Fllcher snld:
"I want you all lo give me a statement In
writing signed by each one of you, because If I
ro back 10 Callfornl 1 and tell this story without
luch a statement I'll be called three hundred
kinds of a liar, and, maybe, be run out of tho
"And I want to say right here," he added,
"that I was sitting at Mr. Stepp's elbow when
be shuffled and dealt the cards, and It was abso-
The statement printed above was then made.
Bach of the players and Mr, Fllcher got a writ
ten rony, and the coplis printed by order of
Capt. Yogelgesang were distributed among the
pen passengers. Some nn.tbemitlcai sharps
tried lo ilguro out the chances of getting an
fthor deal of that kind. They reported that
there weren't enough figures In do It with. But
they discovered tint thorenre full hands enough

Among those who saw the cards were John A.

Brisr Renews of Important ana Interesting
Notwithstanding ths slie and profltsblenesi ot
ths wheat crop, whloh has mitigated tho annoy
ance excited by economlo conditions In general,
there Is encouraging reason to bcllovs that hu
man nature In somo Instances, and qulto Imper
sonally, has felt ths rational and strong attacks
made upon It by Mr. Edward Bellamy and
Others, and that wo shall achieve Utopia in
time. Another and not wholly uninteresting ex
hibition of what wo may be. If wo try. In the
year 2000. is afforded by Mr. Bellamy in his
now economlo novel, "Equality," which Is a
sequel to "Looking Backward " (D, Appleton &
Co.). In this optimistic and altrulstlo work ot
the Imagination matters are so happily ar
ranged that womon may buy paper dresses,
waterproof and of really inordinate beauty,
for sixteen cents each, and carpets and
rich window curtains may be thrown
away every time the rooms are cleaned, because
tbo cost of them Is so Inconsequential. Inas
much as carpets are so cheap that nobody thinks
of retaining them for more than a woek, and
dresses to Inexpensive that thoy are handed
over without thought or question to ths Col.
Waring people of the time as soon as thoy
ro soiled, It might be thought thnt conditions
in 2000 were not entirely favorable to tho
washerwomen and the carpet cleaners; nut
there exactly the hasty deduction trips Itself,
for In Utopia who cares to beat carpets or take
In washing I As a fact, in Mr. Bellamy's Indus
trial paradise everybody chooses his own occu
pation and works pleasurably for tho
Government for 90,000 a year, Womon
drive engine, hoe corn, and work In
the rolling mills, nnd give every evidence of Do
ing glad of the opportunity, and the men go on
pretty much as they do now, with the difference
thatnonoof thorn Is permitted to pursue the
occupation of fox hunting merely or to play
golf and polo as a solo means of liveli
hood. But Mr. Bellamy, whtlo he has been
faltly conscientious and has told a good
deal, has not really acquainted us with qulto
all that happened In his Utopia, There for In
stance, was the revolutionary outbroak of the
doughnut and fried turnovermakers. Of course,
in Boston, as soon as It came to the choice of In
dustrial occupations, there was a universal rush
to engage in the business of altrulstlo philoso
phy. This was also the case In Chtcopee and
some other important parts of the Slate; but the
movement In Boston alone was sufficient to
threaten the perpetuity of the new social order.
The Government was greatly embarrassed. In
two months ths philosophical product deluged
Massachusetts, threatened New York, and over
flowed in over-Increasing freshets Into Ver
mont, New Hampshire. Connecticut, and Rhode
Island. In the State last named It menaced
the great and favorite Industry of clam baking.
The Rhode Island people were unable to enjoy
peaceably their clams, scorched chloken, green
corn, and watermelons, because of ths persistent
and, in tholr opinion, pestiferous Inflow of al
trulstlo philosophy from Boston. In the eastern
part of tho Old Bay State nobody was left
to bake beans. In the beginning of the
third month muttsrlngs of angry discontent
reached the ears of ths Government from
Munson and Agawam. These were centres of
the very Important fried turnover Industry.
The Munson and Agawam people were unwill
ing to take philosophy in exchange for
their turnovers. In their own rude and
dogmatio phrase it was not a square deal.
Pecowslo and aixteen Acres, celebrated dough
nut centres, followed the lead of Munson
and Agawam. In their crude opinion doughnuts
were superior to pure mind. In some parts of
Massachusetts, where certain instincts of hered
ity still resolutely maintained themselves, there
arose an unmistakable cry for the revival of
baked beans. Our old luxuries are good enough
for us, was the remark addressed to Boston by
these yearning and disaffected communities. It
Is needless to go into any great detail, but the
upshot of tho matter was that Munson. Aga
wam, Pecowtlc and Sixteen Acres raised
armies which marched upon the capital, curried
It by storm, abated the supply of altru
lstlo philosophy by OOAs per cent., and
nailed a turnover and a doughnut one on
either side of the sacred codfish in the State
Bouse. This was a rather Important proceed
ing, and It Is curious thut Mr. Bellamy should
have mado no mention of It; still, ot course, It
Is not to be supposed that everything about
Utopia can be told In a single volume of moder
ate slxe. For all we know, the doughnut and
fried turnover revolution has been described
by this generally conscientious author In other
works. We can only trust, for the sako of those
who are desirous of Interesting and plausible
confidences, that It has been; and incidentally
we may express ths further trust that in
Utopia nobody will split the Infinitive when
it is not In the least necessary or desirable, as
when one says, as Mr. Bellamy does on page 7,
" I ask you to kindly tell my why," and nobody
will attach a plural vem to a singular noun,
as when one soys, as Mr. Bellamy docs
In his preface, "This habit, as well
as the existence of the underground cham
ber, were secrets known only to Sawyer
and the hypnotist who rendered his services."
Even In the world as It now Is, It Is possible to
be grammatical, and there soems to be no good
reason why the devotees of Llndlcy Murray In
the present generation should be shocked and
interrupted In the career of tholr hopefulness by
the suggested prospector the anarchy In gram
mar that Is to come. Besides, what Is there In
Mr, Bellamy's story In the way of promise that
the Utopia of tho year 2,000 will not be a mor
tally dull place, with sermons everlasting upon
themes that anybody would neglect In order
to attend a horse raoe, and arguments with
out end lu support of fallacies that an
Inconsiderate human nature would not tolerate
even If they wore possible I Nobody will doubt
that Mr. Bellamy, In providing us with such
books as " Equality," hns meant to do us u ser
vice. There are tboso who have exhorted us, in
tbe kindliness of their hearts rather
than the convictions of their Intelligence,
to remember the virtue and moral advantage
of good Intention, Independently of anything
that may have been actually ocblevod; but It Is
probable that matters of literature can hardly
afford to be regarded In this generous and
purely charitable way, If too roannu that was
sent from heaven to tho starving Israelites had
been detulued, diverted, or spoiled lu transit,
and not eventually and satisfactorily delivered,
It Is probable that It would novcr have achieved
Its prcsont tavorublo reputation; and "Puru
dlee Lost" unquestionably Is a greater thing
than Mr. Bloodgood II. Cutter's "Lines to a
Whule," which was likewise well intended.
Wo have received "Wayside Courtships,"
(Applctons), a volume of short stories by Mr,
Hamlin Qarlsnd, together with several other
previously pablishe I novels by the samo author,
which aro now issued in a tastefully bound and
printed uniform edltlou, Mr. Garland is a real
ist. He bus so often and so strenuously Insisted
on the fact that, much as we may objuct to the
labelling of an ant or with any of tbe mere arbi
trary designations employed by those whom
a contemporary writer has set down us
the wntcr-slftors of llteraturo, In Mr, Gar
land's caso we may accept tbe classlllcn
tlon, on his own authority. Like, most, if
not all, of his previous efforts, these stories
deal with the life of the Middle West, and
as the one object of art in Mr. Garland's eyes Is
tbo representation of the "thing as It is," wo
may conclude that thtso schoolmaruis, minis
ters, book agents, farm hunds, brakciuen, and
boarding-house keepers of hhi aro hero present
ed as plain, uuvurnlshed types of actually exist
ing character. They are not an amusing lot.
There Is a gleam of unconstloui huiuor in bis
presentation of an Englishman, whose uxlraor
dlnary dluleut and Idlosyucrailus aro about us
realistic as are tbe long Dundreary whiskers and
tbe prominent front teeth that tho lion comlqus
of a French provincial theatre still religiously
adopts as part of the necessary makeup ot
a son ot perfidious Albion, nut as for the
rest, they aro unt, even on the shortest
acquaintance, to beromo woarisotne. In "A
Prcaihvr's Lovo Story," Mr. Uarlaud has not
dlsdulncd to take a leaf from tho book of Ian
Maclarea and bis fellow craftsmen in the Lord,
and he gives us one of those simple blendsof love
and godliness that have been cultivated soproflt-
ably In tbe Kailyard. "Before the Van Qroen
Door" is s, bald and uninteresting itudy ot a
death-bod soeno, which may bo realism, bnt
which Is certainly not art, aod which, to
the uninitiated, appears to have little) connec
tion with the subject ot wayside courtship.
There Is eotne art In ono or two ot theis sketches,
but, as a whole, they aro neither stimulative
nor exhilarating, and tholr value as mere
studios In realism Is lessened by the author's too
obvious desire to preach and to obtrude bis own
personality between the reader and hit charac
ters, Messrs. Flood and Vincent, Moadvlllo, Pa.,
publish for tbo Chautauqua Literary and Set
entlflo Circle five volumes which form the
course of "required literature for 181)7-03. I
Those are "Imperial Germany," "Ilomnn and
Medltoval Art," " Roman Life In TUny's Time,"
"Modlasvol Europe." aud "The Social Spirit in
America." In the preface to this edition ot 1
" Imporlal Germany," the author, Mr. Sidney
Whitman, states that In revising the book,
which was originally published in 1888, ho has
bad much assistance from tbo notes and cor
rections made by Prlnco Bismarck on tho mar
gin of his own ropy of tho first edition, nnd that
ho has endeavorod " to carry the subject up
to dato" as far as possible. To all his
work Mr. Whitman brings more of the
vigor of the Journalist than of tbe calm and
critical Judgment of tho historian, and this
book, though omtnently readablo, la marrod by .
traces of partisanship, hero and there that '
lessen Its value as a work of history. Ills strong I
antl-Cathollo bias aud his hatred of Austria and
the Hapsburgs make of blm often on advocate
rather than n Judgo. Ono of tho best of his
chapters Is that on Bismarck. Though written
from tho staudpolnt o a devoted admirer of the
man ot blood and iron, this gives a crisp and
woll condensed summary ot the great states
man's career, from tbo first entry Into politics of
the sturdy Prussian JunAer, overflowing with
animal spirits and demonstratively aggressive
In bis lust for combat, through the struggle
with Austria and the war of 1870, up to '
the time whon tho grand old warrior retired
to tho privacy of Frlcdrlchsruh. A chaptor
on the army contains many statements that,
though true enough la 1880, aro not equally ap
plicable to tbe state of things during the last
few years of the present regime, whllo. In giving
his estimate of the present Emperor, Mr. Whit
man Is so extremely cautious as to leave ns In
some doubt as to bis sincerity. "Whllo many,"
he says, "were Inclined to credit the young
monurch with bellicose leanings and this was, '
perhaps, the most prevalent opinion also onteldo I
Germany those of his admirers who had en- I
Joyed opportunities for forming a personal opin
ion did not hesitate to aver that their youth
ful monarch would turn out to bo nothing
less than a Frederick tbe Great all along tbe
line. Already to-day It Is sufficiently apparent ,
that those who distrusted tbe Emperor becaure
of his supposed warlike proclivities did him an I
Injustice." The book's greatest fault lies In Its I
lack of systematic arrangement. Its chapters on
Social Life, tbo Aristocracy, tho Press, Com
merce and Manufactures, &c, consisting of a
mass of often disconnected notes, and Including
many mere trivialities unworthy of a place In I
what aspires to be a serious work. It is, how
ever. Interesting, as we have said, and except In
tho one ease already noted, Mr. Whitman ex
presses his opinions fearlessly.
"Roman Life In Pliny's Time" which la trans
lated by Miss Maud Wilkinson from the French
of M. Maurice Pelllson, Is a fresh and stimula- I
live study of Roman manners at the end of the
first century of the Christian era. Tbe ovory-day
life of the people, their amusements, their
methods of transacting business, their social
customs, and the dally round of visits to tbo
baths, the theatre or circus, and the schools, aro I
all described with that vivacity and grace ot
treatment that render the work of so many of
the modern French commentators and historians
Infinitely more readable than that of the Ger
mans, who, until recently, have had possession
of tbe field and whose treatment of their sub
jects Is too often apt to be equally exhaustive
and exhausting. M. Pelllson's work is mainly
based upon tho incomparable letters of tho
younger Pliny, white quotations here and there
from Juvenal und Martial, some of which are In .
tbo English of Dryden and Elton, add a touch
of color to the picture. In the final chapter
the value of Pliny's testimony Is consid
ered and his cheerful optimism contrasted
with the cynical railings of Juvenal. "Wo
shall not find," says M. Pelllson, "in
Pliny's writings those lightning flushes, swift
and penetrating, which reveal the most bidden
recesses in the soul of a man. Nor, on the other
hand, ahall we have to make any allowance In
drawing our conclusions from Pliny's testi
mony for the tendency to whieb moralists are
liable of unfair suspicion Id Judging mm. For
so great is the pleasure In dlscoiertng the se
cret motives for actions that one Is tempted to
Imagine them where they do not exist. After
all there Is more Justice and Justness In the
good will of a Pliny than In the rage of a
Juvenal. The exaggeration In the praises be
stowed by Pliny upon his friends. In which ths
polished complaisance of the man appears, leads
us not so far from the truth as the exaggeration
of Juvenal's Invectives." M. Pelllton's volume
is, on tho whole, not unworthy of comparison
with some of tbe oxcellent historical volumes by
his compatriot, M. Gaston Uoissler.
Tbe " Roman and Modliovul Art " of Prof. W,
H. Goodyear Is an old book of tbe same author,
enlargod and revised, with new Illustrations.
Mostot the latter are excellent. This volume,
as Is so often the case with the popular treatise,
suffers from tho attempt to compress a Tost
subject within too narrow limits. Where, tor
Instance, it Is only posslblo to deroto a small
space to such a great question as tho influence
of Gothlo art on that of tho Renaissance, the
result Is confuting, und no cloar Idea is left in
tho mind of tho reader, who has only a
smattering of knowledgo of the great works In
painting und sculpture. Wbercus bo might
biivo obtained somo notion of an epoch by read
ing about one distinguished man and his work,
he Is hopelessly confused In ths attempt to
grapple with a long list of the productions of
various artists. Prof. Goodyear la Inclinod to
vnluo works of nrt, and to plead for art Instruc
tion toocxelusivcly on tbe ground that the stat
uary and paintings of past nges are so many
"documents" that show us how men lived In
times gono by. But surely a sutuo Is of
mure Importance because It Is beautiful than
because it couveja to tho observer accurate
Information as to dressmaking and fashions In
tho tlmo of Pericles. Ills Interesting to know
Just how Aspasla woio her hair, but the other
aspeot of the matter Is the more Important,
Information as to past times Is valuable enough,
but the cultivation of a cntbollo taste, which
recognises the beautiful uuder its every form,
Is the thing first to ho desired.
Dr. Oliver J. Thatcher's "Short History of
Medlmval Europe" Is an oxcollent abridgment
of tholurger"Kuropo lu the Middle Age," by
himself and Dr. Ferdinand Behwlll, It was
briefly noticed In this column a short time back.
In "Tho Social Spirit of America" Prof, O. It,
nonderson, of lbs University of Chicago, ranges
over tbe will-nlgh limitless field covered by
thut most vuguo, oxpanslto and oluslvo
modern bclcnco, sociology, und wrestle with
many problems with all tho enthusiasm
aud with much of tbo spirit shown by
souio of our sensational preachers In their
Sunday evening addresses. Tho "Oriental bar
barism of luxurious vice in many fashionable
circles" is dwelt on, uud thoru Is much declama
tion ugaiust tho "heirs of unearned wealth"
and "purasltes who live upon tho fruits of com
mon toll, ' It Is doubtful whether In adminis
tering to their students doses of knowledgo in
sugar-coated pills, the Chautauqua councillors
aro altogether wlso In putting before them such
menial nourishment as this; "Tho vices
of tho rich look so bountiful In satin
robes and evening driss that they tharin
like virtues. Vulgar vurlety theutres are
often very objectionable and coarso, but
then many costly operas on nhlch wealth Is
lavished sufticlmil to build many model tene
ments uro frequently mere nasty crime set to
fine nmsii, nnd the only redeeming feature ot
the libretto Is thai It Is lu u foreign tongue, it
would be amusing, if the thing were not a ex
asperating and dangerous, to hear a flue gentle
man declaim ugalmt the oxlravaganee of tbe
poor in periods uiudp eloquent by oxpenfbyu
chsmpigne. Thoro it an lmmenso amount
ot cant about the wastefulness ot the
Mower classes,' on the part ot those
I who, It they were paid according to the
value of their social scrvlco, would be
clothed in rags and fed on hominy like other
paupers." Tho Professor turthor tells us In tho
preface, and in his own peculiar wuy, that " En
thusiasm for humanity, hopo of progress, confi
dence In man, may not prof ess to bu rcl Iglous, but
thoy really assume nnd Imply n dlvlno founda
tion of happiness through morality," Now, It
Is not easy to understand Just how enthusiasm,
hopo. or confidence can profess anything, but
wo may reasonably doubt whether any 0110 of
theso admirable sentiments Is likely lo bo fos
tered by tho diffusion of llteraturo thnt
bring, t6 tho consideration ot gro.it economlo
subjects tbo methods ot tbo sentimentalist and
tbo sensational preacher, and thnt foists upon
thepubllo tho sorry fustlnn of tho tub thumper
and tho profestlonal agitator. At ono point
Prof, llonderson makes tho luminous assertion
that "a lamp will drive out darkness where a
club of knottod oak will make no Impression."
Ev n tho futility of attempting to drlvo out
darkness with n club Is not greater than that of
attempting to lighten tho burdens of humanity
by mero thcorlxlng that has no basis in sound
Tho faculty for acquiring misinformation Is
given to many men, but the power of dissemi
nating It Is not so goneral, and eoldotn Indeed I
does oven the most Industrious enthusiast man
ago to 'compress In ss small a spaco so many
errors and inaccuracies as has Mr, Leopold
Wagner in a volumo entitled "The Significance
of Names." (Thomas Whlttakcr.) Under the
soparate headings of "Nicknames of Ameri
can States and People," "Things Theatrical,"
"Titles of Honor," "Schools of Philoso
phy," "Education," "Cordials and Beverage","
"Poots and Pootry," "Fruit and Vegetables,"
&c Mr. Wagner has written a number ot
rambling chapters wherein ho strings together
a series of words and names of 'which ho pur
ports to give tbe meanings and derivations. Ho
docs not appoar to bavo any doflnlte plan or sys
tematic principle ot research, his general form
of procedure being to wado right In to the mid
dle of his subject, tako a chance shot at a deriva
tion as each word comes to hand, and where
there Is a reasonable possibility of making a
mistake he almost Invariably makes It. Hals
not particularly strong on either Latin or Greek,
but ho has yet managed to add a word or two to
either language, fafaf ilium Is, he Informs us,
tbe Latin for palaco, and facire Is tbo verb " to
stuff," while tyraut is derived from the Greek
Tyramo. Philosophy from Sophie, wisdom;
and poot from the verb peiein, to make. In
French be gives us tbe word Parterment, and
speaks of the "Grande Dauphin," and It Is not
till he reaches tho chapter on "Cordials and
Beverages" that ho really gets his feot down
firmly on a solid and Incontrovertible tact.
There he proudly tells us that lime Juice " is
obtained from the Juice of the lime." It would
take much space to enable us to do Justice
to tbe mlno of misinformation and absurdities
that Mr. Wagner has opened up, but porbaps
the following may bo exhibited as one of the
gaudiest of the glittering gems ho has un
earthed: "Tho FUthy School of Poetry Is tho
designation bestowed upon that class of poets
to which Rossetll, Morris, Swinburne, and one or
two others belong, owing to tho sensuous nv
turo of their poetry." Tho Italics are Mr. Wag
ner's. "It would have been much better for
the author's piece of mind," says ho In the
preface, "If the writing of this work could
have been taken out In very small installments."
We don't feel qulto sure as to what he means,
but wo cordially agree with him. Tho smaller
A publication that will delight tho heart of
every lover of sport is the "Encyclopaedia of
Sport," now being Issued by Messrs, Putnam,
and of which wo have received tho first four
monthly parts. For many years sueb a work as
this has been needed. We have bad treatises
Innumerable on every conceivable form of sport,
and magaslnes and newspapers devoted to it,
but since Blaine's Encyclopedia of Rural
Sport; originally published in 1810. and of
which the last edition appeared In 1870,
there has been no work of tbo character
nf the present publication. The three editors,
tbe Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire, Mr. Hedley
Peek, and Mr. F. G. Aflalo, havo secured U10
services of the leading authorities on every
branch of tbe subject, and tho printing, illustra
tion, and general make-up of the four parts un
der notice aro all In Messrs. Putnam's best style.
Mr. William Senior, known to all English
speaking fly fishermen us " Red Spinner," w rites
on angling, and discusses salmon, trout, dry fly
fishing, spinning, fly dressing, &c Each of tho
various branches of athletics Is discussed by a
woli-known expert, and In such sports as are pe
culiarly adapted to women the services of women
writers havo been secured. "The plan of publi
cation In parts." says tho preface, "has been
adopted In tho confident expectation that those
who buy the earlier numbers will never rest
satisfied without the complete series." And,
after having examined tho specimen numbers
before us, we shall be surprised If that expecta
tion Is not fulfilled.

"There are no satisfactory or Justifiable rea

Tho Judge was even warmer about the appli

Ottawa, July 80. The Dominion Govern
ment evldontly hns called a bait in tbe pro
gramme ot the Mtnlstor of Justice for the en
forcement of tho Retaliatory Allen Labor law in
Ontario. It was announced over a week ago
by tho Government press that a spocial agent
had been appointed to enforce the law In this
province Now comes tho statement that this
special ngont has been side-tracked upon tho
plea that, as Parliament had provided no vote
of money for tho ofllco, no appointment can be
mado for tho prosent.
For the enforcement of the act In tho West,
Mayor McCrcary, Immigration Commissioner
at Winnipeg, has been notified of his appoint
mo t as an agent of the Attoruoy-Gcncral of
Cunada under tho Alien laihnr uct. Ue will
have nt his disposal, as occasion requires, any
of tho Immigration ngents In tho northwest,
and In addition atrentsof tho Justice Depart

Tho understanding botweon the Government
