factorily. From its London correspondent THE
Dispatch has received advance sheets of
an anonymous paper to be published in this
month's Cotemporary Review, which will
appear in America next week. The artlcltj
gives some very startling facts with regard
to the origin of the Papal Rescript about
boycotting in Ireland, and advocates very
strongly the theory that tbe next Pope must
be a man who can think In English, and
that the seat of Papal power must be trans
ferred from Home to some English-speaking
country. The article has created a decided
sensation in England, and references have
been made to it in cable dispatches. It is
In Europe there are at this moment but
three men who stand out above their fellows
as the supreme representatives of various
kinds of power. Alexanderlll represents the
authority of material force; Prince Bis
marck the might of scientific organization;
and Xeo XIIL the strength of the Catholic
Of the three, the Pope is the most inter
esting and the most autocratic His empire
is vaster than that of the Kussian Czar, and
before his authority even the imperious
Chancellor has been compelled to bow.
Although a prisoner in his own palace, he
is ruler of a dominion as wide as the world,
and there is no language spoken among men
wherein his word is not recognized as the
voice, of a master.
A Life of Loneliness nn'd Mystery.
There is a loneliness and mystery about
Xeo that differentiates him front the other
potentates of our day. Prince Bismarck is
intensely human. He stands before us as
the very incarnation of a masterful man.
He lives before us, complete in all human
relations, with his wife, his sister, his sozs,
his dogs, his pipe and his beer; he touches
the common life of his day at every point.
It is the same with the Czar; although in
his case he is more withdrawn from the pub
lic gaze, he shares not less fully the ordi
nary life of the ordinary man. As father,
as husband, as master, as friend,
he is a man among men; nor does
the burden of empire separate him from
the simple family joys and natural every- '
day cares of tne human home.
.v In n Pnlnce, Not a Borne.
Buttee Pope stands apart He fUeps as
other men anc eaia as they, hat a great gulf
yawns between him and other mortals. He
lias a palace, but he is without a home. He
has servants and domestic friends; but the
celibacy which for centuries has been im
posed upon the clergy of his Church debars
him from the deepest and most human of all
relationships. He has never known the
joys nor suffered the sorrows which make
up a great part of the higher life of the ordi
nary man. He has lived and lives apart,
alone, divorced from nature that he may be
consecrated to the service of his Church;
without wife or child, that he may care
solely for the Bride of the Lamb, and watch
more sedulously over the welfare of those
who are of the household of faith.
Bis IdenI High and Xoblc.
That which distinguishes Leo XIIL is
that before his mind there has passed a
vision of a higher and nobler ideal than that
"of being the mere temporal master of the
Eternal City. He has seen, as it were in a
dream, a vision of a wider sovereignty than
any which the greatest of his predecessors
had ever realized, and before his eyes there
has been unfolded a magnificent conception
of a really universal church, as "lofty as
the love of God, and wide as are the -wants
of men." But no sooner has he gazed with
holy ecstacy on the world-wide dominion
which lies almost within his grasp, than he
turns with a sigh to the older and smaller
ideal of the temporal sovereignty of Borne,
which has bounded the horizon of so many
of his predecessors, and which passes upon
him like the atmosphere of the whole of his
waking life. These are the two dreams, the
two ideals, hopelessly antagonistic one to
the other; but Leo helplessly clings to
Monsignor Perslco and His mission.
The writer goes on to say that the mission
of Monsignor Persico to Ireland shows how
incompatible these two ideals are. In sub
stance, he says that the English Govern
ment brought pressure to bear on the -Pone
to induce him to send an envoy to investi
gate the condition of the Irish people, and
to Inform His Holiness as to the justice of
their cause. This envoy, Monsignor Per
sico, was from the first looked upon with
suspicion by Irish priests and people. He
prolonged his stay for many months, making
ambiguous reports. The British' ministry,
irritated by the delay, sent the Duke of
Norfolk to Rome to hasten matters at the
Papal court At his urgency, the Pope,
from incomplete information and by advice
of his Italian counselors, who knew little
of the language and less of the people of
Ireland, issued the famous rescript con
demning boycotting and the plan of the
campaign. The writer then continues:
Pcrsleo's Fears for Himself.
In Ireland the rescript was received with
an angry outburst of indignation which
found a convenient whipping boy in the
Papal Envoy. So vehement was the chorus
of denunciation that Monsignor Persico
was alarmed for his own safety. Incredi
ble as it may appear, to those who know
how foreign such a crime is to the Catholic
Iribh, it is actually a fact that he believed
and said that his life was in danger. It was
with a feeling of profound relief that he re
ceived permission to return to Borne, where
he is looking after the Copts, and discharg
ing the other duties which belong to the sec
retariat oi the Oriental rites to which he was
promoted some months after his return.
Never for many years has there been such
a commotion as was excited by the rescript
The Bishops of Ireland, with one excep
tion, omitted to publish it to their flocks.
All Ireland seemed to be up in arms, and
the most faithful Catholics were those who
took the lead in denouncing the rescript
A Shot Fired In the Air.
That was the fashion in which the rescript
was brought out It is in this way that
the Vicegerent of Eternal Justice exer
cises his jurisdiction. From first to last
there is no indication that one of these for
eign priLcestook the trouble to inform him
self at first hand of the facts upon which he
is called upon to pronounce judgment
During the conception of this extraordinary
document, the Holy Father does not appear
to have thought it worth while to communi
cate with his faithful bishops in Ireland,"
the most conspicuous of whom, Archbishop
"Walsh, had publicly committed himself to
a defense of the plan of campaign. The
result was what might have been antici
pated. The rescript condemning boycotting
and the plan of campaign assumed as a
postulate the existence of free contract be
tween landlords and tenants in Ireland.
Assuming that to exist which did not exist,
its censure was nothing more than a- shot
fired in the air.
Not What Was Intended.
To add to the chagrin and disappointment
of the well-meaning but injudicious Pope,
the only voices raised in approval were
those of the habitual enemies of himself and
his people. To delight the enemies of the
faith and to fill tbe faithful with confusion
and dismaywas not exactly the end which
the Pope had set before himself when, with
unwise precipitance, he plunged into the
Irish bog. Fortunately he was wise enough
and bold enough to see his mistake and to
endeavor to reverse it An apologetic ex
planation was published. All negotiations
with the Duke of Norfolk were abruptly
broken off. The Duke suddenly returned
to England from Italy without having the
audience which had been arranged.
In justice to Monsignor Persico, it should
First That so far from the rescript hav
ing been drawn up in accordance with his
recommendations, there were few men in all
Ireland more astonished, and it may be
added dismayed, than was Monsignor 'Per
sico on the receipt of that fateful document.
Precipitancy Was Deprecated.
Second That not only did Monsignor Per
sico not advise the publication of the rescript,
but in his repor.s, which he forwarded to
the Vatican for the information of the Holy
Father, he expressly and urgently depre
cated any such precipitance, and implored
the Pope to do nothing, whatever in -Ireland
until he had snmmoned'thb Archbishops
and one bishop from every province in Ire
land to Pome, and bad gone into all the
questions of fact and of principle with those
who were most competent to advise.
Third That when the Pope, in his letter
of June 24, 1888. defending his rescript,
told the Irish Bishops that his sources of
information were trustworthy, and that he
could not be justly accused of having given
judgment in a case with which he was in
sufficiently acquainted, because he had sent
Monsignor Persico "with the commission to
use the greatest diligence in ascertaining
the truth, and to make a faithful report to
us," he seems to have implied that his re
script was based upon the report of Mon
signor Persico. Although the Pope may
have read the earlier letters of his envoy,
the contrast between Monsignor Persico's
final advice and the Pope's action seems to
indicate that bis relazione had not even
t ecn perused by the Pope before he launched
the rescript which created so much heart
burning in Ireland.
Fatal to Pnpal Influence.
Fourth That Monsignor Persico, so far
from desiring to make tbe Church the tool
of the English Government, declared
throughout that it was fatal to the influence
of the Holy See in Ireland that the Pope's
action ehonld be in any way suspected to be
prompted by England.
These statements arc not made without a
full sense of the grave responsibility attach
ing to their publication. They are capable
of conclusive demonstration.
Much more important, however, than the
rehabilitation of the Archbishop of Dami
etta, is the lesson which this story teaches
as to the perils which encompass the church
when the Sovereign Pontiff, the successor of
the Prince of the Apostles, and the Vicar
upon earth of our Lord Himself, can thus
set at defiance the ordinary rules of states
manship. It is not enough to have your
head in the clouds. You must have your
feet firmly planted upon the solid facts.
The root of the difficulty seems to lie in
the extent to which the Catholic Church
has been Italianized and centralized. If
tbe Pope is to fulfill his greater ideal he
nave to Shake Himself Free
from the influences of the Vatican. The at
mosphere of the place, the traditions and
associations which cling to its very walls,
and the all-pervading presence ot the Italian
cardinals and great officials, render it im
possible for him to rise to the height of his
great conception of his role as the mouth
piece of the conscience of universal Chris
tendom which speaks with the voice of God.
Until he has definitely rid himself of the
desire to re-establish a temporal authority
in a second rate European city, that minor
and earthly ambition will continually ob
scure his higher and brighter ideal, and
lead him into devious courses which will
impair his influence even in the Catholic
These considerations point in one and the
same direction, and they are powerfully re
inforced by the most conspicuous political
phenomenon of our day. "We stand at the
dawn of a new epoch, which, from the point
of view of universal history, is quite as
momentous as that in wnicn tne northern
tribes broke in upon and destroyed the
fabric of the moribund Empire of Borne.
The Supreme Merit
of the Catholic Church that, amid the crash
pofthe earlier world, it recognized with a
sure provision that the past was gone
irrevocably, and that the future lay with
the fierce warriors from the fastness and
forests of tbe north.
It remains to be seen whether the church
will be as quick to discern the salient feature
of the great transformation through which
the world is passing to-day. It is a revolu
tion vaster and more rapid than that which
founded the modern European world on the
wreck and ruin of tbe Roman empire.
The world is passing into the hands of the
English speaking races. Already the En
glish tongue ir becoming the lingua franca
of the planet Already the territories over
which the laws are made and justice admin
istered in tbe language of Shakespeare and
of Bacon exceed in wealth, in extent, In tbe

At a conference between the coke operators
and workers at Everson yesterday, tho
strike in the Cormellsville region was
settled. The men have secured a victory
by an advance of 12 per cent in wages.
The great strike of cokers in the Con
nelisville region is practically ended. A
conference between the Tepresentatives of
three of the largest works in the region and
their employes was held yesterday, when
satisfactory settlement was made. Tho
strikers came out victorious, having se
cured an advance of 12 per cent This will
give them 95 cents for mining. In the ratio
that they have been paying wages, the oper
ators claim the price of their product should
be advanced to $1 50 per ton. They have
been paying their men 85 cents
for $1 coke. This was rate made when
coke was selling at $1 25. According
to the sliding scale and agreement when the
price of coke went up or down 25 cents, the
rate for mining was increased or decreased 5
cents per hundred. "When coke went down
to $1, the operators were paying their men
90 cents, but considerately did not reduce
the wages of their employes. In order to
pay the present rate they claim they must
advance the selling price to $1 50. This
will be resisted by tbe furnacenien, but a
determined effort will be made nevertheless
to increase the price to at least ?1 25. Some
of the largest concerns have contracts run
ning for one, two and three years, and can
only realize the advance in price on their
outside business. The following special
from Everson last night tells the tale:
FtTLLY SET TOBXH.
The strike is ended, with a victory for tho
men at an advance of 12 per cent This was
brought about by a conference of tho labor
leaders, which lasted all day, withthree large
coke firms, H. C Fnck & Co., J- M. Schoon
miker A Co. and the McClure Coke Company.
The men will receive 85 cents per 100 for min
ing and 55 cents per 100 bushels charged for
drawing. Ail other wages will be in propor
tion. There is to be no discrimination made
against tho men egaged in the strike.
All are to hare their old posi

months, whether eoLe advances ordeclines and
either party is to give SO days' notice, to termi

are now being sent out to the different worts,

NO WONDER IT WAS FIXED.
Tho following was received from Cormells

it has no other compensating features. If long

number ot employes. It will also invito con

The status of the cokers' strike remains
practically unchanged in this end of the region.
At Oilpbant the advance has been grautea and
enough of the ovens only are being run to keep

adopted in strikes to prevent damage to the
furnace. The Wyraan Coke Works, which
have been purchased by J. W. ilooro A Co..
and extensively improved, will be fired up as
soon as the labor question is settled.
OrEBATOBS FAIIi TO CONFER.
There was no conference of coke operators
yesterday. Tho attempt on "Wednesday to
get them together met with such poor re
sults that it was decided to do nothing fur
ther for several days. The majority of them
being at the seashore, their representatives
wonld not act without instructions. These
instructions will probably be received to
day, and a conference may be expected to
morrow. The object is, not to settle the strike
with the representatives of the cokers, but to
agree upon an advanced price for coke. If
the price can be bolstered up to $1 25 per
ton, a joint conference with the employes'
delegates will bo called- A great many of
tne operators nave contracts running lot
two and three years, and tbe advance would
not benefit them. One of the largest pro
ducers will not raise the price until the rates
on iron are advanced, being heavily inter
ested, In the latter business.
At the offices of each company yesterday
it was stated that the situation was un
changed. They received reports from the
region every hour.
The shipments of coke to the "West are
growing noticeably less every day. On
"Wednesday there went out ot the region, to
all points west ot this city and east of Buf
falo, only 63 cars. This includes what was
shipped to the. Mahoning andShenango
Valleys. The shipments ot the day previous
were about 130 cars.
None of the blast furnaces in tho Mahon
ing and Shenango "Valleys have so far been
compelled to close dawn, as they have large
stocks of coke on hand. The only furnaces
which have been inconvenienced by the
strike are the Bellaire, owned by the Bel
laire Nail Company, and the Scottdale.
The former is the latest to be banked,having
been unable to obtain coke.

. New Yobk, August 8. Roe &Macklin,
of 156 Broadway, for years the attorneys of
the Baroness Ton Roque, mother of Mrs.
Maybrick, who has been condemned to
.death at Liverpool on the charge that
she poisoned her husband, collected
evidence for Mrs. Maybrick in this
country. Just before the trial a Liverpool
solicitor, Mr. Arnold Cleaver, came to New
York, and spent nearly a week here, return
ing to England July 21, with the witnesses
that Roe- & Macklin bad found.
The verdict was a great surprise to the
New York firm. Mr. Macklin had started
off for his long-deferred vacation in the
Catskills, but he hurried back to-day when
news of the verdict reached hint He
will at ouce begin to collect evi
dence with which, he hopes to se
cure clemency for Mrs. Maybrick.
Mrs. Maybrick told the Justice alter the
jury had been charged that evidence in her
favor had been withheld. This seems to be
really so. Mr. "Weaver cabled over a week
ago to Roe & Macklin, advising them not
to send on any more witnesses, as the trial
would have ended before their arrival.
One of Maybrick's old body servants, a
colored man who served him before and
after his marriage, is now a resident of this
city. He is known as Archy Davis. His
rignt name is Church. This witness abso
lutely refused to go over to England to tes
tify. His deposition was taken, but too
late to be used at the trial. Mr. Macklin
said to-day that this deposition would be
forwarded to Home Secretary Matthews, to
gether with that of Dr. Griggs, of Brooklyn.
Mr. Macklin will sail for Liverpool in a
day or two. A cablegram from Liverpool
lira. Maybrick, who was found guilty yester
day, of poisoning; her husband, and sentenced
to death, has broken down under the great
strain to which she has been subjected for days
past, and is said to be seriously ill. Her
mother called at the prison to-day and bad an.
affecting interview with tbe prisoner. A
memorial to the Government in behalf of Mrs.
Maybrick has been signed by most of the bar
risters and solicitors of the Liverpool Circuit
Tho memorial asks that the prisoner be re
prieved on the ground of the conflicting natura
ot tbe medical evidence given at her trial. A
similar petition is being circulated among the
merchants and brokers, and is receiving many
signatures. There is a general ferment
throughout the country against the verdict

by Mr. Mahoney. A tremendous uproar
The Chairman's calls for order were
drowned in Irish yells. Amid a moment's

Pole Mountain ranchman, was solved to-day
by the discovery of his bones. There is every
indication that he was murdered, after which
the body was cremated. His death, like tho
Sweetwater lynching, is traceable to land
troubles. His ranch was on the
Sander's timber reservation, and he had
obtained it by jumping a claim previously
held by a family named Black. He had
since constantly had trouble with the
Blacks, and the day after his disappearance

Mr. Harrison and his distinguished party
are now enjoying the ocean breezes at Bar
Harbor, as the guest of Mr. Blaine. Dur

impromptu receptions were held at various
places.- But one short speech was made, in
which the President referred warmly to his
Bak Habbob, August 8. President
Harrison left Boston at 9 o'clock this morn
ing in a special train. The engine, which
is the new 15-ton locomotive Tippecanoe,
was decorated with floral designs. The
President lingered a moment on the
car platform, but politely ignored
calls for a speech. The first
stop made was at South Lawrence, where
an impromptu reception was held. The
second stop was At Haverhill, where a big
arch of welcome was erected and a large
crowd packed tbe depot and adjacent streets.
As the train rolled into "the depot the band
played, cannon boomed and the peonle
hurrahed and made a noisy time generally.
At South Berwick, on the Maine side of
the river, & stop was made to take on Adju

Colonels Philbrook. Pullen audBoothby,
of the Governor's staff, and more cheering
and the same eager desire to grasp the Pres
ident's hand. The crowd that greeted the
President at Augusta, Mr. Blaine's home,
was a big one. It extended across the depot
platform and tracks, and some of its number
were upon the depot roof and upon build
ings near at hand. It was a gathering typi
cal of a Maine city, and as the train was
brought to a standstill and the President
walked out on the platform, he was given
an old-fashioned Maine cheer.
THE FBESIDENtAI, LUNCH.
The President sat down to lunch with
Senator Hale as soon as the train left the
Augusta depot It was by his own wish
that the lunch was served so late. His
lunch was interrupted by his arrival at
"Waterville, which was signalized by a
salute. A big crowd occupied the green in
front of the depot and the depot itself, and
gave Maine cheers, as. under the escort of
Governor Burleigh's staff officers, the Presi
dent left the train for the first time since it
started from Boston.
Amid cheers and expectant looks as he
walked to a staging whieh had been erected
for tbe purpose within sight of the cars. The
band played for s minute and then Presi
dent Harrison said:
Fzlxow CtTBEfS-The preparations which
have been made here are more suggestive of a
speech than those I have seen at any other
place on my route, leame from Washington
with a resolute purpose to make no speeches.
The purpose of my coming to Maine, as you
welt know, was to visit your distinguished cit

and Cabinet officer. James G. Blaine. Great
cheerins.1 I beg you will, therefore, allow me
simply to thank you for the cordiality with
which you have greeted me, to wish to all good
evening and to bid jou good by.
Amid cheering the President returned to
the train and to his lunch. Afterward he
devoted himself to a chatwith Senator Hale.
Both gentlemen went to the rear of the
train when Bangor was reached, about 3:30
p. ir., while a salute was being fired. The
depot platform was packed with people.
Congressman .Boutelle, Hon. Hannibal
Hamlin, Mayor Bragg, ex-Governor Davis
and other gentlemen entered the President's
The 65 miles between "Watervills and
Bangor had been done in 62 minutes, and
the run along the road to the Ferry was
made in what seemed to be just as good
time. Save for an occasional cheer as the
train dashed through a station or by a field
there was nothing out of the ordinary until
Mount Desert Ferry was reached. There
another crowd was met, and it was a great
one. considering the size of the place.
BLAINE AND HARBISON.
Secretary Blaine, who had come over on
a, special boat from Bar Harbor, walked
along the platform between the people, and
stepping into the ear, greeted the President
"With but a minute's delay the President
and his Secretary of State, followed by the
rest of the party, left the cars and walked
throuch the throne to the steamer, which
was brightly decorated everywhere that
decorations could be placed.
At Bar Harbor the first sign of the recep
tion came from the Revenue Cutter "Wood
bury, which was decorated, and which fired
a national salute. This greeting was taken
up by yachts, some ot which were decorated.
Then the welcome was taken up bv the peo
ple on shore. The President and Mr. Blaine
landed and walked along the wharf out into
the street, where carriages were awaiting
them. The two notables entered a, landau,

Chabxjsston, S. a, August 8. The Mc
Dow verdict seems to be bearing its legiti
mate fruits, and the nimble pistol is once
more at work in the Palmetto State. There
have been a dozen or more shooting or cut
ting scrapes in the State within the last
week. Some of these have found their way
through the Associated Press, but only in
cases where death resulted. The lastest oc
curred in Laurens county, yesterday, when
O. "W. Lansford, a prominent citizen, shot
and killed Barrett Langston, both white. A
vendetta between tbe Lansfords and the
Langstons has been declared, and both fam
ilies are now on the warpath.
In Bamberg there is also a vendetta on
between the Prices and Stewarts, growing
out of a caning and shooting scrape that oc
curred several days ago.
In Charleston the colored man end
brother is following closely in the footsteps
of the white brother, and is using1 the shot
gun, pistol and razor with lively effect
There have been no less than five or six
shooting and cutting scrapes here within
the past three days. The ifcics and Courier
will say editorially to-morrow:
The State is smeared with blood from the
seaboard on tbe mountain and there Is no toll
ing who tbe next shot will strike. What are
we going to do about itT We need not try to
disguise the fact that the administration of
iistice has fallen into a state of Innocuous
aesuetude. The press and pulpit should speak
out, now and at ail times, against tbe violation
of law, and should denounce every miscarriage
of justice as a blot upon crrillzatioa and art
outrage upon honesty.

Boston, August 8. Nat Goodwin's cot

bloody suicide to-day, the deed being the
more revolting because committed in the
presence of the victim's little child. Mrs.
Alice Clark, a handsome widow of 43 years,
who is stopping at Mr. Goodwin's cottage,
cut her throat with a razor, her little
girl, aged'10 years, being the involuntary
witness. "Without any warning the mother
took a razor from the pocket of her dress,
and made a motion as if to draw it across
her throat Noticing the look of horror on
the countenance ot the child, the unfortu
nate woman desisted for the instant, and
raising her finger said, "Now, don't you
tell," and quick as a flash the steel was
directed across her throat and this time
with fearful effect
She dropped to the floor, the Mood gush
ing from a terrible wound. The child
rushed out of the room, screaming at the
top oi her voice, and in a few minutes be
came hysterical and swooned away. The
mother lived two hours.

The "White House servants arc dissatis

ances are in the hands of the French, GoT
ernment'a law agent for adjudication.
rsTEOAX. TXXXaBAX TO B91 3I3rAXCK.l
"Washington, August 8. For soma
time there has been serious trouble in tha
"White House, which bids fair to break; out
in a legal war between the mistress and tbe
maids. Just before the departure of Mrs.
Harrison for Deer Park the entire corps oi
servants held a conference and , resolved
unanimously that they did not get enough,
to eat. They also resolved to present am
humble petition to Mrs. Harrison, asking;
that a small additional allowance be made
them in money, in lieu ot board, so that they
might get their meals outside; and now it
appears that while no redress has been, g ivea
in the matter of victuals, Mrs. Harrison hasj '
repudiated her engagements entirely, or,
which is the same thing, the engagements:
made by the "White House steward, and re-1
fuses to pay the wages agreed upon.
ECONOMY THE BtTLE.
Soon after Mr. Harrison came to tha
"White House in March he began to econo
mize in the domestic expenses, when, tha
Clevelands left they took some of their serv
ants with, thenu Mrs. Cleveland, of con rse,
took her maid with her, and Mr. Cle vela nd's
steward followed his employer, but a fe w ot
the servants were necessarily left behind.
Among these was Mr. Cleveland's high
priced French cook. The cook is one of
the few "White Honse servants who are paid
out of the President's own pocket, and Mr.
Harrison resolved to get rid of the high-
priced cook as quickly as possible.
Tne President had apparently not the)
courage to go from the fancy French cook to
the colored aunty atone plunge, so he looked
around for something that wonld be about.
KAT.r WAT BETWEEN.
At that time the servants who had lost
their employment at the British Legatioa
throngh the indiscretion of Lord Sackviile,
were on the labor market of "Washington,
and learning that they were to be had cheap,'
Mr. Harrison, through his steward, made
them an offer.
Marcel Pelonard had been Lord Ssck-t
villa's butler all the time his lordship beta
British, Minister here, and had been in his!
service in France long before he came to,
"Washington. During the same long period
of years his wife, Madame Pelonard, had,
done all hia lordship's cooking, and had,
done it well. Mr. Harrison naturally,
thought that a cook who was good enough,
winter and summer, for one who lived and
entertained so elegantly as Lord Sackviile,
waa good enough for him at any rate forj
the summer months, when there are no state,
dinners at the "White House and no fancy
7BXNCH SERVANTS SECUKED.
So Mr. Harrison's steward offered Madams
Pelouard an engagement to preside over
President Harrison's kitchen. The Madame
was at that time engaged in doing the cook
ing for the historian, Bancroft, but sha
thought, in an innocent French way, that it
would be a great thing to do the cooking for
the "White Honse. After that, she imagined
anything would be possible, and the euisinea
of "President Carnot and of all the royal
palaces of Europe would be open to her, not
to speak of the competition there would bo
amongthe millionaires of America to obtain
her services. Besides, she was glad to leave
Mr. Bancroft's service, or almost any other
man's service, for a place where she and her
husband could secure an engagement to
gether, and this prospect was opened to her;
at the "White House. She was to take
charge oi the "White House kitehen imme
diately, and her husband was to enter uj.on.
his duties as butler of the "White House oa
the 1st oi August.
A JOB FOB THE SUMMER.
Even then Madame Pelouard hesitated to
give up her place with Mr. Bancroft unless,
she could have some guarantee that the en
gagement would last during the entire sum
mer season, whtch among the cooks and
butlers of "Washington means all tha
months up to tha first of November. As
surance was given for the summer, and sv
verv fair promise for the winter, and
Madame Pelonard left Mr. Bancroft's
kitchen with, a light heart, as her distin
guished countryman started on, one occasion
to fight the Germans.
Early in April Madame Pelouard took
charge of the "White House kitehen, and at
the same time her husband, confident in his)
engagement as butler at the "White House,
took a trip to his own La Bella France, t
return in time for the beginning of his en
gagement at the 1st of August. At that
time, also, some others of Lord Sackville'a
servants went to work in the "White Honsa
in place of some old colored servants who
were removed, for President Harrison or
Mrs. Harrison had determined to get rid of
all the colored domestic servants.
NOT WHAT SHE EXPECTED.
Madame Pelouard worried along at the
"White House, and was content to remain,
in consideration of that fact that she was
soon to have her husband by her side, al
though she fonnd that the white House was
not what she had expected. In fact, it wast
not long before she had occasion to write to
her husband that sha feared he would not
be willing to remain at tha "White House 15
days, for the reason that the servants theret
had great difficulty in getting anything to
eat, and could never get a sufficiency. Sha
herself, she says: has been positively- hun
gry, and while tne cook was hungry, it meat
have fared pretty badly with the ether ser
vants. Many a time the other servants of the
house, believing that it was through tha
cook's fault that they did not get enough to
eat, have coma singly and in a body to tho
cook, and like to many "Oliver Twat's,"
