have not been hitherto widely known.
Mat Grini is tho author of a Southern
story in the February number, and in
the March number will appear a story
of Louisiana, entitled "John Toner's
Experiment, by Mrs. Margaret Weth
erell Kernan, with a full page illustra

"Tim Strength and Weakness of
Socialism" is the title of a striking
and timely article by Dr. Washington
Gladden, in the forthcoming March
number of Tlie Century. Dr. Gladden
attempts to show what the Socialists
think and want. Dr. Gladden also
gives his own views on this pressing
public question the result of many
years of elwervation and study.
Km ii.io Castklar is probably the
most brilliant orator now living. A
full-page portrait of him will form the
frontispiece of .the March Century, with
articles by William Jackson Arm
strong and Alvey A. Adee, of tho
State Department, Washington. The
latter was a member of the American
Legation in Spain at the time of Cas

its leading article, endeavors

it is not epidemics of yellow fever or
cholera alone that are to be provided
against, but the numerous wasting
diseases that prevail. One life raved

Mr. Thomas J. Girardeau, a South
erner oi the old typo and a literary
man of taste, skill and abilitv. read
Uncle Tom'n Cabin the other dav for
the first time, and confesses that be
fore he did so "it angered him to hear
the preposterous praises heaped on
the book. When certain admirers
talked of similitudes to Shakespeare
and the Bible I failed lo dissemble my
utter disgust. When twitted with con
demning and contemning what I was
ignorant of, I replied that it was not
necessary to read tlie Book of Mormon
to pronounce Joe Smith a fool, nor
the Age of Beaton to discover what the
babble of the world had abundantly
revealed that Tom Paine was an
atheist and a radical." Well, Mr.
Girardeau read and he was conquered,
anil he writes: "Let tho political
features go. Doubtless tho book did
the work of a million men in bringing
on tho conflict and in freeing the
slaves. We are thankful it is all over

should give the people- to understand '
that in the future all papers would lie ,

wno nau any information to lay be
fore tho lresidcnt would know what
to expect. No ono could sutler by
such an agreement. It would servo
to make people more careful of what
they said and for whom thev signed,
and that certainly was desirable. The
signing of petitions for olhce had
grown to absurd proportions. Many
prominent men will sign anything,
and a uovemor of this Ftate, Mr.
Curtis said, had told him that ho
signed every petition that was pre
sented to him, but whenever he
signed such papers lie wrote to the
appointing power to say that tho sig
nature meant nothing at all, and that
if he really wanted to help an appli
cant no would write, in a private way.

TTAR ON THE SPORTS.
EfTorta lo Bnppreaa Gambling at
St. Ixivis, Mo., February 22.-Ever
since the public gambling-houses in
this city were closed, about two years
atf". by police authority, several of the
gamblers have been running houses
across the river in East St. Ixmis, and
it is alleged that they have been pro
tected by the Fast St. Iouis police on
the payment of a large money bonus.
This becoming obnoxious to the bet
ter class of citizens, and no hope ofire
lief from the Fast St. Louis police
being entertained, the aid of tho
county authorities was invoked, nnd
Saturday night Sheriff Uobiqitct, with
several'dcputies, aided by Thomas Fur
long, Chief of the Missouri Pacific
liail way Secret Service, and several of
his detectives, raided the three prin
cipal houses, captured their proprie
tors and employes, took them to lit-II-ville,
tho- county seat, and placed
them under bonds. It is now alleged
that this action was instigated by
Chief Furlong, and that aside from
the purpose of breaking up the gam
bling dens or closing and proving the
alleged corrupt relations between the
Fast St. Louis police authorities and
the gamblers, it has some mysterious
connection with the murder about
three months ago of the Hon. John B.
Bowman, ex-Mayor of East St. Louis
and a prominent and wealthy lawyer of
that city. No explanation of tho mat
ter can be obtained, but it is said that
some startling revelations are likely to
be made in tlie prosecution of those

Mr. Curtis said that ho agreed with
Senator Sherman on the right of the
Senate to see the recommendations
for appointments. The Senate was
part of the executive power. The
constitution said that the President
should nominate and by and with the
consent of the Senate appoint certain
oiiiccrs. jn nan oi ine executive
ower tho Senate had tho right to
know what influences, considerations
and information bail decided the
President in making a nomination,
Its action could not be thoroughly in

tion. The object of the Senate in de
manding these papers was twofold.
rirst, it wanted to defend the eharac
ter of the men w ho had been re
moved." In the second place, it wished.
i possible, to throw discredit on the
President and to show that he had
violated his pledges. The latter was
its prune object. The Senate be
longed to the opposition part v. and it
had tho right to attack the President's
osition if its warfare was honorable
I'he President could block t he Senate's
game by furnishing it with (ho infor
mation asked. The Senate has said
mat the inlormation was wanted as
secret information. It was pretty cer
tain, however, that u anything hkelv
to injure the President was obtained
in this way it would speedily become
public. Let the 1'resident try the
Senate's secret session plan. If the
information thus given should leak
out ho could thereafter reply to the
Senate's demands by saying, "I shall
give you the information you ask, but
1 shall also give it to the public at the
Mr. Curtis thought, bad nothing to
fear. Mippose that Ins reason tor re
moving a iiostmaster was that ho
was drunk, would tho publica
tion of that fact hurt the President?
Would not such action deter other
postmasters from liko offenses? In
conclusion, Mr. Curtis said that he
was compelled to differ with the Pres
ident as to his prerogative. Mr. Cleve
land was perhaps right in declining to
uiaKe ins action retroactve. anil in
refusing to turn over communications
intended as confidential, and In many
cases so marked. But his course in
the future was clear. Ho should place
all communications on record, and the
writers should know that letters to the
President are letters to the country,
JMavorixjw H idea was praiseworthy,
He let the people know that he felt at
liberty to mako anything public, as he
deemed best. Mr. Curtis said that a
demand of this sort had never been
complied with by any other President,
irom Washington s tune to the pres
ent, but Mr. Ueveland was elected
under peculiar circumstances, under a
movement intended to reform politics,
A great step for reform would be his
putting an end to all secrecy that was
not supported by reason of the consti
tution. FRAUD AND C0RKUPTIGN

of the certificates are out of date and
