GLADSTONE YS ARGYLL.
The Premier Replies to Ills Adversary's
Attack on Home Bole How the Tory
Thunderer Views the Controversy
Tammany Methods In Ireland.
London, Sept 24. The Timts has the
full text of Mr. Gladstone's vindication of
home rule, which was to appear in an
American publication to-day, cabled to it
from Xew York last night This article is
written in reply to one by the Duke of
Argyll published in the same magazine last
month. This morning's issue of the Times
contains, besides Mr. Gladstone's article, a
long leader, in which it attacks his premises
It appears that the interest the Duke has
always taken ir. American effairs, his
sympathy constantly displayed for Ameri
can ideals, the nromptitude and earnestness
with which he championed the Federal
cause at a time when Mr. Gladstone was in
forming the civilized world that the rebel
President had made a nation, naturally won
for him the grateful respect of patriotic
American citizens. Mr. Gladstone evi
dently feared that the effects of the state
ments made on the authority of one so well
entitled to the confidence of American citi
zens might exercise them. He endeavored
to counteract their effects by promptly
issning a characteristic reply.
The fundamental propositions the Timet
savs the Duke of Areyll lays down are
not the kind to be affected by slight inac
curacies or disposed of by the passionate
rhetoric Mr. Gladstone seeks to palm oS as
an argument, and Americans from their
domestic experiences have slight difficulty
in deciding whether, as a rnle, Irish organ
izations managed by Irish partisans are dis
tinguished lor intelligence or integrity.
The Timet adds:
We have heard of Tammany events on the
other side ol the ocean, and of the arts by
which Tammany Hull was secured. Mr.
Gladstone's ideal is Ireland ruled on Tain
m 'ny principles, unrestrained by any ef
fectual legal limits save of lili own making.
We see nutulnjr in the disjointed tracts and
miscellaneous documents lie advances with
so mucn unnecessary pomp to weaken the
dp enption Ills opponent has givon. His
efforts at historical inquiry are all per
meated with that tone of table which in
variably marks his description ot Irish,
HEW WAY TO MAKE MONEY.
A Company That Will Insure Against Twins
BT CABLE TO Tltl DISPATCH.
LoJfDOX, Sept 24. What worse domes
tic calamity can befall a poor man's home
than the advent ot twins, unless it be trip
lets? That, at least, is the idea upon which
the projectors of the Provident
Bounty Association, organized this
week, propose to bank. The prospectus
of the concern as a financial document is
unique. It bears some respectable names,
and subscriptions to the capital stock of
10,000 are invited, with most tempting in
ducements. It is notorious, say these
projectors, that many people marry in the
hope of Improving fortune, but fre
quently disappointment comes with
the advent of an unexpectedly large
family. This association provides to some
extent for that contingency by at once
giving a substantial sum in the case ofthe
birth of twins. It is further set forth that
there were no less than 1. 147.000 births in
Great Britain and Ireland last year, and
that medical statistics fix the proportion of
twins at per cent
The schedule of rates and conditions is in
teresting. It is provided that a subscrip
tion must be made at least three months be
fore the date of birth, and the twins mnst
be born alive to entitle the subscriber to the
bonus. A subscription of 5 shillings will in
sure the sum ot 10. Twoguineas insure 100.
There is no provision tor any larger sum,
but in the case of triplets "an additional
bonus of 50 per cent w ill be paid without
greater cost On the basis ot tnese figures
the projectors easily compute that there are
millions in it If only 10,000 prospeciive
mothers subscribe the profits will be 33 per
cent, and the glittering prospect ol extend
ing the system to America, the Continent
and the colonies is seductively dwelt upon.

London, Sept 24. The removal of the

Lord elson's Old Flag Ship to Be Purchased
by a Mansion House Fund.
London, Sept 24. It having been an
nounced for some time that the old line-of-battle-ship,
the Foudroyact, which the
English captured from the French and
which subsequently became the flagship of
Admiral Kelson, was to be sold to be broken
up, many indignant protests have been
written against the warship being con

So strong was the patriotic feeling that
Lord Mayor Evans gave his consent yester
day to open a Mansion House fund for the

FABIS AS GAY AS CAB BE,
Cheers for Anarchy Go Where Those for the
Empire Are Squelched.
BT CABLE TO THE DISfATCH.1
London, Sept 24. Paris has been very
gay this week. The great centennial fete
of Thursday is almost unanimously re
garded as a brilliant success. The Prefect
of Police estimates that 1,000.000 spectators
witnessed the historical cavalcade on tne
left bank of the Seine, and 800,000 saw
the procession on the other side of
the river. This may be a slight
exaggeration, but certainly the crowds out-
numoerea any wnicn ever belore gatnerea
in the French metropolis, with perhaps one
or two exceptions. Now that France pro
fesses so much love for Bussia. and has even
made a secret defensive' alliance with the
Czar, the fact is sbarplv commented upon
that the Bussian embassy did not join in the
great illumination Thurs lay night, which
formed the climax of the celebration.
A leading Paris journal calls attention to
the fact that two countries alone assisted
themselves with our national fete, namely,
Italy and England. Of course the growing
sentiment of anarchy found frequent ex
pression. Cries of "Vive 1'Anarchiel"
were not repressed until a persistent party
of roysterers made the air ring with them
in front of President Carnot's residence,
and then, before tbe Ministry ot- tbe In

Mrs. Delaunay Fined for Trying to Solve a
rnr cable to the dispatcii.1
London, Sept 24. American women
will sympathize heartily with Mrs. Delau
nay, whose difficulties, growing out of the
servant girl problem, led to her appearance
as a defendant in the Bow Street Police Court
yesterday. Mrs. Delaunay has been driven
to despair by the delinquencies of her
kitehen maids. She tried a risky experi
ment She installed a boy of 16 years in
her kitchen in the capacity of dishwasher,
stove polisher, potato parer and waiter. She
argued that he could "hardly be more de
structive than the average scullery maid,
and that with training he might become a
most satisfactory servant, and then the
style when he put on a page's jacket,and
tended the door
Unfortunately it is of little purpose to
send the result of the experiment to an
anxious nation of American housewives.
The sequel in this case could not happen to
them. Mrs. Delaunay was summoned to
court charged with hiring a male servant
without taking out a license, as required
by the excise Iaw,at a cost of 15s per annum.
She was compelled to pay a fine ot 80s. One
is moved to ponder whether, after all, the
American tariff has not advantages as a
source ot national revenue over the Eng
lish system, which imposes a tax for wear
ing a seal ring, for hiring a b y, lor draw
ing a check, lor receipting a bill, etc.
AN EN0EM0U3 LAHD 0WHEB.
The Late Duke of Sutherland's Estate a
Million and a Quarter Acres.
Tbt cable to the dispatch.
London, Sept 24. The Duke of Suth
erland, who died Thursday, was the largest
land owner in England. Beside having
estates in three other counties, he practical
ly owned the whole of Sutherlandshire.
Altogether, he had over 1,250,000 acres.
He was fairly well liked by his tenants,
and had the reputation of being a just land
lord. At one time he was in particular
lavor with the English Court
The strained relations between
the duke and his first wile,
however, led to a coolness at the court, and
for many years His Grace had only the
b'arest recognition from the royal home.
When he returned from America with Mrs.
Blair as his bride he retired to his Suther
landshire sea', Dunrobin Castle, and mixed
very little with the world ot fashion.
Tbe Marquis of Stafford, who succeeds to
the dukedom, sat for some years in the
House of Commons. He was not on the
best of terms with bis father, as he took a
rather lively objection to the Duke disen
tailing the estate and cutting down the
timber. The Earl ol Cromartie, the second
son, was the Duke's favorite.
POOR VEGETABLE CROPS.
Fred Ilelni Says Cholera Will Advance
the Price of Cauliflower-Sal tcrs Hold-,

Peculiar Besult of a Scare.
The price of pickles and canned goods
promises to be high this winter. The crop
ot vegetables is nothing to boast of and the
rates are gradually going up Fred Heinz,
of Heinz Bros. & Co., "Was speaking
yesterday about the outlook; "The
cucumber crop," he said, "has
not been a bowling success this summer,
and the salters are holding them in stock
lor higher prices. The creat pickle district
is within a belt 150 miles in radius around
Chicago. More cucumbers are raised in thu
section than anywhere else in tbe country.
Tbe clima e and the moist soil from the in
fluence of the lakes are peculiarly
adapted to their growth. The
cucumbers are gathered and placed
in large rait vats by the salters. Knowing
that they are a very scarce article in the
market, they are inclined to hold on to
them. Tomatoes also have been scarce,
and krauts are at a premium.
"The cholera scare will greatly advance
the price of cauliflower. For some reason
this vegetable can't be raised successfully
in America. Growers hare spent thousands
of dollars trying to cultivate it here with

rnoBKEsroxDEMn: or the dispatch
NmvYOBK, Sept 24. "The falling off
of our majorities in Maine and Vermont,"
said a Bepublican manager at 518 Fifth ave
nue, "is the best thing that could have hap
pened to us."
This extraordinary cheerfulness under
political reverses indicates a Christian
spirit worthy of all emulation. A boy who
gets licked and savs: "Thank you mamma,
it is the best thing you could do for me,"
has a hopeful future it he lives but he is
liable to die early. I have a little 5-year-old
who has been spanked once. It was
great novelty to him, and made such an im
pression on lili mind that in an hour or so
he came and laid himself across my lap and
requested me to spank him again. I gently
suggested that he hadn't done anything
that require d a repetition of tbe punish
"But I've been thinking of it, papa; and
It might keep me from it."
It appears to ba the same advance con
triteness of spirit that actuates the gentle
men at 518, and as such it is a very good
sign. They haven't requested the favor of
being spanked again, however.
"It will warn the party," continued the
manager, "that this campaign cannot be
fought out successfully without an effort
It will stimulate the voters. I say it isjthe
best thing that could have happened. If
we had held our own or increased our
majority we should have been so confident
that defeat would be morally certain."
Blaine's Latest Contribution to Politics.
Speaking of tbe Maine election reminds
me of the disposition iu certain Harrison
ian quarters to find fault with one James G.
Blaine for not voting. This absurd cavil
has driven that voter into carding the news
papers in explanation. The gist of his ex
cuse is that he didn't have time and that he
was "paired." That explanation ought to
satisly the most exacting political manager.
There were a good many voters in Maine
who didn't have time, and who were not
"paired," either. The fact is, this ques
tion of pairs is not thoroughly understood
throughout the couutry, and Mr. Blaine's
explanation of why he didn't vote is there
fore one of the most valuable contributions
to campaign literature, American politics
can never be considered worked up to tne
highest style ot the art until the pairing
s stem long In yojne in Congress is gener
ally introduced and perfected. The custom
ot pairs is well understood by a man like
Blaine, who has sat in both Houses ot Con
gress with distinguished ability, and it only
remained for the father ot reciprocity and
other political innovations to engraft Pairs
with a big "P" on our national electoral
system to round out and polish off a grand
Iu the Senate of the United Slates the
theory and practice of pairs is carried to a
higher state ot perfection than obtains any
where else in the world; though the Na
tional House of Bepresentatives, if you will
pardon the expression, ain't no slouch.
Growth of the Fair In the Senate.
"When a Senator wanted to go away' in
Blaine's time he weut to a brother Senator
ot the other political party and arranged
with him privately to abstain from voting
on important political questions and to pub
licly announce, should the occasion arise,
that he was "paired" with the gentleman
from So-and-so and it that gentleman were
present he would vote on such a side, and
that he, the Senator lrom So-and-so, would
vote on the other. This kept the record ol
both gentlemen straight and did not affect
the main issue. It was called a "pair."
This elaborate definition is necessary from
the fact that most people think that a pair
means two ot a kind aud beats ace high. Iu
this case it means exactly tbe opposite.
That is the wav it used to be in the Sen
ate of the United States when James G.
Blaine was in it The system implied the
presence of one party to announce the pair
and keep the record "Straight. But the
rapid progress of events brought along a
new and improved system by tbe operation
of which neither Senator need be present
They don't even have to bother about hunt
ing up a Senator of tbe opposition. The
pair once officially recogn zed, an official
pair-maker lollowed as a matter of course.
Ihe pair-maker looks after the absent
Senators and pairs them one with another
without causing them the expenditure of
unnecessary thought So it is now possible
lor a Senator to go home and mend his
fences, or go off and get diuuk without
jeopardizing his political record. In fact,
it isn't necessary to go to Washington at
all and a certain California millionaire
Senator did not go, being paired through
the entire session.
TFhat the New System Would Save.
The "pair" introduced by Mr. Blaine in
the popular electiou is a startling Innovation
but it is worthy ot careful and prayerful
consideration. The question whether it will
open a market for another barrel of pork is
not distinctly divided from it Here is my
servant, a Democrat, who must go and vote
aud here am I, a Bepublican, who must go
and vote, though if we mutually agreed to
remain at home the absenteeism would not
affect tbe result at alL Under the present
system he has a day off, goes to the polls
and gets drunk and probably locked up; I
drop business, go to the polls, talk politics,
get hot in the collar and miss my dinner
and otherwise demean myself.
Under the reform movement of pairs be
gun by Mr. Blaine there would be no use of
this. The official pair makers oould be no
tified by us aud our names be stricken from
the poll books In advauce and transferred
to the book of pairs. If there were 1,400
Democratic votes in my precinct and 1,200
Bepublican votes, It would be possible for
1,2U0 men to pair, and the presence of the
200 men not paired, and who, of course,
couldn't pair because there would be no
body to pair with them, would be all that
would be absolutely necessary to conduct
the election. See how simple! It 'seems
incredible that this scheme should have to
await the practical illustration ot James G.
Blaine beiore it takes root iu the American
body politic. If 1,000,000 voters, at the
average wages of J2 SO per day, were thus
paired and remained at work on election
day, instead of tooling aroun) talking poli
tics they don't understand, there would be
a net saving ot 2,600.000 in a single day.
And if but figures always make me tired.

A Bandall Democrat on the Stump.
Congressman W. H. Souden has been In
the city for several days, flying out here
aud there to deliver political speeches for
the National Democratic Committee. Mr.
Souden went out to Tarrytown the other
evening, and on a few hours' notice had an
enthusiastic audience of some 1,200 people.
He naturally thinks the impression that
little interest is taken ip the campaign is
erroneous. Souden is from Allentown, Pa.,
and has a Congressional record of a high
protection Democrat, having supported the
late Samuel J. Bandall in his earnest fight
against the Morrison horizontal tariff bill
and having voted against the Mills bill I
asked Souden How be could reconcile hs
record with the Democratic platform.
It is one of the anomalies of politics that
a Pennsylvania protectionist like Souden
finds it possible, aud even agreeable, to
take the stump on a platform, the leading
principle, ot which Is a bold condemnation
ot that which he holds most dear. The
Democratic candidate, the Democratic plat
torm and the great mass of the Democratic
party have unequivocally declared that
tariff reform, or anti-protection, is tbe only

agree upon this. If Democracy to-day
means anything it means hostility to pro

effect They are in rainbow colors and
They begin on top of the house and wind
up at the third story, the letters being of
tinted glass rondeaus illuminated with in
candescent bulbs of various colors. The
names of the candidates reach clear across
the building and are in alternate letters of
red, white and blue. The "And" is iu
green, in deference to the Democrats from
the "Ould Sod." As you approach from
the direction of Twenty-third street you
can see only the white light letters "L"
"E" "N" in the ex-President's name, and
"T" "E" "O" in General Stevenson's
name. The others are invisible until you
get almost opposite.
A Smart Man From West Virginia.
The Bepublican National CommUtee has
sent out Mr. Jacob Kemple, of Wheeling,
W. Va., to entertain the interior with
stories from the stump. Kemple is a speaker
after the style of Horr, of Michigan, aud
isn't tar from the Michigan campaign orator
in personal appearance. He is snort, heavily
set, of great girth aud of features fat, child
like and bland, and when he laughs his eyes
dance merrily and his fatness shakes 'all
over. Kemple'i forte Is homely illustra
tion by humorous and telling stories. His
idea is that-an audience should be enter
tained as well as instructed, and that it

He has an apparently inexhaustible fund of
stories which he can tell with an inimitable
Irish and German dialect When he is in
terrupted in the course of his remarks he
pauses long enough to fire one of these bits
of humor or satire at the interlocutor, which
generally settles him to the hilarious satis
faction ofthe audience.
The boys tell a great story of Kemple'i
experience four years ago in Boston with
Harvard lads, who have an unpleasant
habit of firing nuestions at a public speaker.
They presumed upon Kemple's persoual
appearance, which is rather plain, as well
as portly, but the Harvard boys got a taking
down that they remember to this day. At
least there is one who remembers the occa

An Oil Man After Gas.
National Bepublican headquarters boasts
of a Pennsylvania man who was once re
puted an oil millionaire 'round about Titus
ville. He is now boring for oil for Colonel
Carter and a salary. When he strikes
"first sand" we will hear more of him. His
name is B. H. Lee. Although a Pennsyl
vanian, Captain Lee was commander of the
Sixteenth New York Independent Battery
during the war, aud is said to have made a
good military record. Captain Lee still
owns oil wells in Washington and Ail e
gbeny counties, Pa. He was once a large
producer and refiner of oil, and during the
palmy days of the oil rezions had a good
deal of money. Just now he doesn't kno w
whether he is better or worse for having a
few oil wells on his hands.

A Conflict Between, Two Boards PreTent

LONDON, Sept 24. London is to-day
suffering from an epidemic not so deadly as
cholera, but serious enough to demonstrate
the utter inadequacy of the boasted prepa
rations for coping with any form of pesti
lence. There are about 5,000 cases of scar
let fever in this metropolis, and the disease
is spreading rapidly.
A week ago I mentioned that the hospital
accommodation for such cases was already
overtaxed. Now that the authorities are at
their wits' end, they have not only ac
knowledged themselves helpless, but they
have uncovered a scandal on the local Gov
ernment snch as Englishmen have been
fond of declaring could exist only under tne
scheming ambition of transatlantic institu
tions. Hospital management in London has been
nnder strong suspicion and criticism of late.
The Local Government Board, so called, is
the general sanitary authority. The
Metropolitan Asylums Board Is the local
exreutive authority, which has charge
especially of the public hospitals for con
tagions' diseases in London. Neither board
is directly responsible to the people.
It transpires that there has been for
months a practical deadlock between thesa
two governing functions. In tbe midst of
what has grown to be a serious emergency
the Asylums Board throws up its hands,
and a resolution adopted this week, appeals
to the Boards of Guardians,the sanitary au
thorities and the press to use their influ
ence to prevent such a scandal. The board
says it has appealed to tbe Local Govern
ment Board tor months for additional hospi
tal accommodations, and thus lar in vain.
