From Uie Literary Digest:
The Jewen Mt:-senger, ot New

We are old-lashioned enough to
believe that .he Jaw has not sur

purpose. We know that in the
ibbaud fl. w ot the cen'uries
Judaism has assumed d fferent
phases; but no m ire irreiBubly do
ihe waves rue and fall than have
these phases of Jewish develop

God. There was never an era in
Jewish history with detection aud
disloaliy threatening the faith
vheu some mystic influence was

The Leaders Getting Together
to Formulate a Policy.
Concerted Action Wanted on the Various
Subjects of the Legislative Scheme.
The Chinese Exclusion Act Prospective
Removals of Department Officials.
"Washington, May 15. The policy of
the next congress is now the subject of
general comment here. The Democratic
leaders and the administration are trying
to come to an understanding as to a policy
by which they can avoid the danger of a
split in the party on the money question
and secure united action on several im
portant questions which will present them
selves. It is believed by those who have
been most active in the matter that an
agreement will be reached on the money
question. In fact the programme of the
congress has been laid out with consider
able detail, and the belief is entertained
that the administration and congress will
dwell together in harmony. It is settled
so that Mr. Cleveland himself does not ex
pect any change of purpose that the extra
session of congress will be called for the
middle of September.
It is the present understanding that the
compromise proposition to dispose of the
silver question by accompanying the re
peal of ths Sherman law with the repeal
of the 10 per cent tax on state bank cur
rency will receive the sanction of the ad
ministration, and that the men in Con
gress who are fighting against any con
traction of the currency will be satisfied to
let go of silver if they can get the state
There are said to be four things which
it is the desire of the party leaders that
the coming congress should dispose of as
speedily as possible, and it is believed that
Mr. Cleveland will dwell upon all of them
in h(s first message
They are the repeal of the federal elec
tion laws, the levy of an income tax, the
repeal of the Sherman law and of the tax
on state bank currency and a complete
revision of the tariff, making a very de
cided reduction of duties all along the line.
The Chinese Exclusion Act.
Washington, May IV. Now that the
Chinese exclusion law has been declared
constitutional, the government finds that
it hardly knows "where it is at." The
expense of enforcing the law is enormous,
and no money is available for this pur
pose. It is even to be doubted whether
congress would vote an appropriation if it
were in session. The effects of the deci
sion are far reaching and may involve the
complete severance of our diplomatic and
commercial relations with the Chinese em
pire. This means that the Chinese minister at
Washington will present his letters of re
call to the president and close up the lega
tion in this city. Then the American min
ister at Peking will be politely requested
to withdraw from China and will be fur
nished with passports for himself and as
sistants. The next step will be to send Amer
ican citizens of all classes, merchants, mis
Hinnaries. etc.. out of the celestial country,
accompanied by an imperial decree closing j
all Chinese ports to citizens 01 tne unueu
States, including even tourists. While
these mav be extreme views on the subject,
it is nevertheless true that the cabinet is
discussing the question in all its bearings.

sidering ne question of reorganizing the

Vice Consul General to Paris.
Washington, May 15. The interesting
announcement comes from Indianapolis
that Mr. Samuel B. Morss, the new consul
general to Paris, has appointed Mr. Clyde
Shropshire of Georgia, vice consul general
in place of Mr. R. M. Hooper, who has
been connected with the office ever since
the war. The determination of Mr. Morss
in this matter was awaited with some anx
iety by those interested. A considerable
pressure was brought to have Mr. Hooper
retained, and on the other hand there was
a formidable movement to secure a new
man. Mr Shropshire is said to be eminently
well qualified for the position, having been
a practicing lawyer in Paris for several
years and therefore acquainted with the
language and business of the country.
Louisiana Land Contest Decided.
Washington, May 16. Secretary Hoke
Smith has approved to the list number 45
of swamp and overflowed lands embracing
in-the aggregate 48,479 acres. These lands
lie within the Hournas grant and north of
the McDonogh and Fontnot grant as
established by the survey of May 12 and
June 6, 1892, and were formerly in contro
versy between the state of Louisiana,
claiming under the swamp land grant of
1849 and by the cities of Baltimore and
New Orleans claiming under the will of
John McDonogh, whose title was derived
from a French grant made to Delille
Dupard April 3, 1769.

GORED BY A BULL
Three Men Seriously Injured In the Street
Philadelpha, May 17. Alavgeoull, In
furiated by the attack of a dog and smart
ing under the blows of a mob of unreason
able men, seriously injured two old men
whose age prevented them from getting
out of the way of the vexed animal, whose
presence in the streets is still unaccounted
for. A small dog, urged on by some dock
loungers, made a vicious attack upon the
animal's rear legs, and, tormented by the
dog's actions, which it could not repel, the
maddened animal dashed up Callowhill
street. William Burns, aged 60, of 418
Spruce street, was crossing and was
knocked down by the animal in its flight
and wjjs seriously injured by one of the
bull's hoofs, which struck him on his head.
The bull then turned up Front street, and
James Hines, of 515 Vine street, was at
tacked and thrown to the pavement. The
animal continued on its mad career, made
more furious by the attacks of a mob of
men who followed and pelted it with
stones and other missiles. At Button
wood and New Market streets the bull
collided with Benjamin Myers, aged 72, of
110 Brown street, who was tossed in the air
and dashed against a telegraph pole. At
York road and Buttonwood street the ani
mal was driven into the stable of William
Donahue, where it was confined in a box
stall. Its owner is not known.
RICH GOLD FIND,
An Oregon Mine That Is Richer Than the
Famous White Swan.
Baker City, Or., May 15. One of the
richest gold strikes ever made in this sec
tion of the country, not excepting the
famous White Swan mine, which is yield
ing $i,uuu per day with a ten stamp mill,
has been discovered. The lucky finders
are James and Samuel Baisley. The latter
was one of the discoverers of the White
Swan. The new find is situated about
three miles south of the White Swan.
Over $1,000 in gold was pounded out Thurs
day in a hand mortar. The ledge in which
this pocket has been found has been found
has been uncovered 160 feet and proves to
be a pay chute for that distance, and varies
in width from 2 to 10 feet.
There is enough ore in sight to make the
owners an immense fortune. The city is
greatly excited over the find and people
are constantly leaving to be on the ground
and stake off claims. A sample of one
piece weighing 10 pounds and containing
over $100 in gold has been placed on exhi
bition at the National bank and has been
viewed by hundreds of people. All say it
is the greatest find ever made in the north
west, and from all indications the mother
lode of the Virtue and White Swan dis
trict has been found.
MINISTER RISLEY'S SUIT.
It Is Claimed He Received Fees Which He
Did Not Account For.
New York, May 17. John E. Risley, the
newly appointed minister to Denmark, was
made the defendant in a suit for an ac
counting of his fees as joint counsel with
the late Senator Joseph E. McDonald. A
bill in equity has been filed with the United
States court asking for the appointment of
a receiver for Risley's property pending an
examination of the accounts of McDonald
& Risley as attorneys in Alabama claims,
footing up several millions of dollars.
The petition asks the court for a writ re
straining Risley from departing out of its
jurisdiction. The case grows out of the
partnership of Risley and McDonald in the
collection of claims awarded by the Ala
bama commission. It is claimed that Ris
ley received a large amount in fees for
which he has thus far failed to account,
and that McDonald received but $6,000 of
these fees although entitled to a much
DYNAMITERS IN PARIS,
The French Capital Threatened by the
Paris, May 17. The police found several
bombs, many pounds of dynamite and a
chest of burglar tools buried in a lot sur
rounding a shed in the suburb of Leval
lois. The bombs were more powerful than
those before seen in Paris. Ertch consisted
of an old can formerly used for preserving
peas, still bearing the lable, a glass tube
filled with acid, and a packing around the
tube of giant powder and small pieces of
iron. Any one bomb is powerful enough
to blow up a house or to wound scores of
persons if it was exploded in the street.
The police do not feel certain whether or
not the bombs and dynamite were buried
by anarchists or the burglars who own the
chest of tools. They have arrested Bondon,
owner of the property on which the tools
and explosives were found, and several an
archists upon suspicion.
The Church of England Threatened.
London, May 17. The Archbishop of
Canterbury officiated at the choral sacra
ment in St. Paul's Cathedral. The specta
cle was one of remarkable splendor and
impressiveness, as a strikingly gorgeous
procession of bishops and deans and other
clergymen, members of the Convocation
of the Province of Canterbury, in the
robes of their sacred offices, traversed the
nave of the cathedral chanting the words
of the service, which was intended as in
troductory to the great meeting of English
Churchmen in Albert hull to protest
against the Welsh suspensory bill as
threatening the existence of the Estab
Baltimore Firm Burned Out.
Baltimore, May 17. The establishment
it O. F. Day, Son & Co. at 32 West Balti
more street was completely gutted by fire.
A large stock of trunks, satchels, harness,
etc., was destroyed. The fire originated in
the cellar and within 10 minutes flames
were pouring from the windows of all five
stories of the building. Many of the em
ployes had narrow escapes. Ten minutes
time was lost by the firemen cutting
through a mass of overhead wires before a
ladder could be raised. Loss on stock and
building over $100,000; insurance, 170,000.
