.. THE LATE SEKATOB HIT.L.
Distressing news comes from the town of

Mr. Benedict has chosen an opportune

CAriTOL CIVIL, SERVICE.
It is earnestly hoped that no matter
wbo may be the lucky gentlemen in the
contest for those offices of toe House
and Senate vvlilUt biing the incumbent
into closest contact- with the public they
will be impressed with the beauties or
civil service In the most exalted sense
or the phrase.
Merely by way or Illustration, and not
ror the purpose or instituting offensive
comparisons one may Uto the multiple
position of doorkeeper those who sit at
entrances to House and Senate and convey
cards and messages to Senators and Kep
rescntatives. Several ot these offklals have filled tiieir
positions for long jcars, through all Ad
mlnUtrations, In the mot charming man
ner, and these will probably be retained.
The numerous remainder will be selected
from the hungry retainers of the party
who will rule tbe roost lor a longer or
bliorter period. These new ones usually
come from places which, are not indicated
in the geographies ot tbe. schools, and
fetch their cro4 reads, Ury-goods-box-oa-the-sunny-siile-of-'hc-srocery
Flushed with a gratified ambition, of
which they had previously had only tbe
vnsuest of ilr-ams, they develop suddenly
from the condition of Jack-knife iritics
into proprietors of all they survey. To
take a card or message to a Congress
man becomes a labor of supreme! conde
scension. The superior expression or pity
and contempt that flits over their faces
makes the mI brazen Iobbjist as meek
as Moses. Their loftiness permeates the
atmosphere and compels the v cry i-orndors
to bend In an attitude of abject sub
mission. It bhould be repealed that this Ovcrl
tion applies only to the very new. and it
is given as a mere bint to the appointing
power that it may put these necessary
evils through a school of .discipline and
deportment which shall make their ser
vice the most civil thing in all the civil
LNG EHvOLL'S THANKSGIVING.
Beyond companion I he most unique ob

festival will be that performance or three
thousand Christian Eudi-avorcra at Cleve

send upward a fervent nnd uniteil prayer
for the conversion or Col. Ingersoll, the
greater Infidel on earth, announcement
of which event is made in a telegram to
The Tlmca this evening.
Years apo discussion between agnostic
and orthodox factiens led to a challenge
to a prayer test, and history declares that

try its cfrlcaey. The results have been
About the test which the Endeavorers
make-there can benomlstnke. Thcbumor

It is a wonderful Thanksglvms experi

with profound Interest, but one cannot
avoid a wish thnt the Endeavorers had
ehoccn something easier.
ONE WHO -WAS NOT LYXCHED.
rrom away down in Georgia comes a,
i-heeriucrbltot news that a negro who was
guilty of a criuia which deserves the severest
legal penalty was protected from a mob or
lynchers by the law officers ot the county
where the crime was committed.
Such respect for orderly proceeding Is so
rare in certain regions or the country that
it should not pass unnoticed. Virginia has

Prof. Frederick Starr, occupying the
chair of anthropology In tbe University of
Chicago, will leave hero on DecetubeT 18
for a three months' trip through Mexico
and Guatemala, says a Chicago corns pond
eut ot tbe New York llerald. He has a two
fold Idea in making tne trip, one being to
make as thorough an examination as jkwsI
ble o a buried, or rather submerged, Aztec
city, which lies at the bottom or Lake
Cnajula, in the state ot Jalisco, In Hexico;
the other to find out what he caa about

This Lake of Chapala, which is lu tbe
southwestern part of Mexico, and Is 0,000
feet above the level of the sea. Is situated
in tbe mountains, about 2D0 miles to the
northwest of the City of Mexico, and is
reached by the bra cell of the Mexican Cen
tral Itallroud, which runs westward from
Irapuato to Guadaljara, the town and lake
of Uhapala being not far rrom the latter
Lake Chapala is quite a summer resort
for wealthy residents f the City of Mexico
and olher piaivs, and resembles the b-as-tiftil
lakes or SwiUer.niKl. It Isabout sixty
miles In length from east to west and some
rifteeu miles in width at its broadest part.
A steamer plies upon it and touches at the
various small towns upon Its shores, the
principal ones being Tir-aiwin and Jiqi.tlii.in.

"According to the legends or the. In

sunken or submerged city!" I asked.
"As to that, I cannot say, but the In
dian or Mexican legend is lo the effect
that when tlie Artecs migrated to the
southeastward In search or a place to build
a city they were preceded by an eagle,
and wherever this eagle llgbted upon a
rock that was the place -where tbe new
city was to be built. Id the course or the
Journey the eagle ahghted upon a rock
where Lake Chapala now is, and here the
Aztecs stopped and built the city the

"After a while tbe eagle arose fnirn the
rock and pursued Its Journey to ILe scuta

had not erected tbe city In the proper
place. Accordingly they deserted tbe city,

"The Indians say the present city of
Chapala la ali being swallowed up by
the lake, and that In the course or years
it will bu entirely submerged. It Is the
custom in Mexico to build the church or
cutbedral in tbe center or the town. In
tbe case of the present town or Chapala
the church Is at the edge ot the town and
standing on the shore or tbe lake. The
Indians say the remainder or the town has
been swallowed up by the water."
"Did you notice any ruins or Ihe town
li.oking. from tbe church toward the lake
which would indicate tbat any portion of
tbe place bad been swallowed up?"
The prolessor smiled as he answered, "I
did not." Resuming, be sold: "These
legends may or may not have any founda
tion, bnt the fact exists that a town lies at
tbe bottom of Lake Chapala, and It was
limit a long time ago.
"So far aa I know there are no means of
determining how long ago It was built or
when, why and how It was submerged, bnt
I am going down there lor tbe purpose of
finding out all I can about it- It was evi
dently a pretty substantial town. Judg
ing by what bas been seen of It when
J, the water was low."
