SOME PRACTICAL HINTS ABOUT TBE
What to Wear-Colors and Shades
Bonnets, Hats, Gloves, dee.
Nsw TORI, September 30.
The asnal cargoes of loreign birds and birds
of passage have arrived, and the papers teem
aa usual with brilliant prognostications of the
approaching season. Dress, opera, concerts,
receptions, all' unapproachable In beauty,
gayety and magnificence, are the themes of
ordinary society conversation, and doubtless
the Binging birds who have succeeded Nilsson
expect tto reap a golden harvest from this
land of rich promises. Perhaps some ol them
will. Lucca will undoubtedly carry away
substantial evidence of American liberality;
but lila extremely doubtful lt all tbe antlcipa
- lions of grandeur and gayety are.realized.
There are several skeletons whose bones will
persist In snowing themselves, and one ot
themis disagreeably obtrusive even now, viz.,
shortness of money.
WHAT TO WEAR.
la the midst ol all this excitement people
are hurrying home from the country, and rush?
ing frantically about, Inquiring what they shall
get to wear. , , . V.
The stores are lull o? new goods and lately
received garments, but nothing is easier than
to make a mistake In making a purchase, and
the money gone, nothing remains but to abide
I by it. The difference as yet between t
I spring and the fall, is of material only, not
form. Ic is the Polonaise in black caBbmei
instead of bun* batiste, embroidered with si
instead of linen, and trimmed with (ayak," I
stead of linen lace. There ls a slight varlatlc
however. There is the choice between t
Polonaise and the Dolmar. the latter being
close-cut sack", with immensely long and wi
sleeves, much longer and out of all propon l
to the body. But wbo ever beard of fas hi
paying any attention to proportion ?
What is called the "latest" style, though
1B old enough, old as the hills, as the cblldn
say, ls announced as a "talma with sash."
ls in reality a mantelet with simulated hoc
and long rounded ends, crossed In front, ai
tied at me back like a Marie Antoinette floh
It is made In black cashmere lined with bia
silk, and trimmed with broad black lace.
Yak, or woollen lace Is one of the noveltle
It ls made to Imitate Irish point, and ls ve
effective for trimming floe woollen suits ai
costumes. It ls obtainable in black, and va;
ous shades of color, and costs from fifty ceo
to two dollars and a half per yard, accord! t
to width and fineness, the range averagli
from one to six Inches.
Camel's hair or Arabian cloths as lt ls Ind!
ferenily called, ls the mo9t stylish material fi
full street costumes. It ls very wide, bi
makes an expensive toilette at BIX dollars pi
yard, when the making and the cost of tl
lace Is Included. It must be Bald, boweve
that yak laoe, wide and matching it in colo
trims lt exactly.
Black Bilk suits have been rather run lot
the ground, and their place ls taken by tho:
who can afford them, with suits ot dark ric
plum-colored silk, saire, ^reen, chocolate, ai
tumnal leaf, or bronze brown. These hanc
some suits are made up with abundance i
kilt pleating, velvet somewhat darker, an
fringe with netted beading, precisely the sana
shade. Lighter browns, grays, cafe au fall
peaoock, and leaf tints, are made with dem
trains, and trimmed with rich fringe or blac
thread lace for oarrlage dresses. Black moir
and Irlnge. or black velvet and lace, are ih
fashionable trimmings tor black Bilk. Ladle
cloth fur fall travelling suits Is trimmed wit
silk (gros-graln) of the same shade, or a shad
darker than the material. The most wastefi
and therefore the most fashionable design fe
carriage dresses is a demi -trained skirt, ruffle

without oversklrti?, the back breadths belni
laid over in single folds, which are carried ii]
to the line of the shoulder, and give the effec
of a Watteau plait. Sometimes the sleeve
are formed of this side pleating, but thii
method ls ungraceful and unbecoming; th
coat sleeves which have reappeared, am
which are rendered antique by the addition o
two puffs, one at the top and one near thi
dbow. are much belter.
The' cloth cloaks, such as have appeared
are made lu the sack cape style. A few ver;
handsome ones In dark oloth have been re
celved, richly embroidered, with silk sllghtl;
Intermixed with Jet, and bordered deeply wltl
a fringe of black marten fur, once known ai
Alaska sable. The Dolmar will also be a favor

ion. Tbey can be purchased ready-made, ot

COLORS AND SHADKB.
The great art of the costumer at the present
time is to blend shades in such a way as to
form a perfect harmony of color. Much con?
fusion ls created by tbe announcement every
few weeks of a "new" color, when lhere can
really be no such thing, and the so-called new
color ls nothing more than the revival of an
old one, or a new shade ot color already in
"Paris in ashes," for example, Is simply the
darkest shade of gray, formerly known as
"Iron" gray, and resembles Invisible green so
closely thai they are often mistaken one lor
the other. In the Inner depths, however,
there is a shade wblch in one Is tireen and the
other red. This marks the difference, but
with a subtlety which lt ls difficult to detect,
except by putting the two tinta together.
The Bilks of the season ex ni bu nearly every
variation of every shade, of every color, and
gloves ure made to maioh. In plain colored
silks of rich quality we have counted thirty
six shades of wood color alone, and matched
each one perfectly with gloves.
Oreen commences at the palest "water"
tint (eau de nil,) and goes down th rou.'ti

The number of shades mentioned does not
uclude all that are made irom the different
solora, but simply those tbat comprise the
recent Importations, and for whloh gloves can
aa procured to match. Neither can we find
Lime nor space lo particularize the shades,
whose subtleties are as charming as the study
ls interesting. Women might be forgiven for
giving their time and attention with dress, If
ihey studied lt irom the esthetic point of view,
for the gradations in color are like regular
octaves In music, and li women could find
their loves In muslo, and the correspondences
to them tn color and tint, wonderfully beauti?
ful toilettes might be wroughtout,barmonlzlng
not only with the physique, but the deeper In?
terior nature of the woman.
FALL HATS AND BONNETS
are unchanged in shape, and in the skeleton
are as ugly as possible. All the grace ls given
to them by the milliner, and, lishe is desti?
tute of that necessary gift, her clients suffer.
The round crowns, with straight narrow
brims, are the popular style, the crown sett
and composed of silk or terry velvet; the
brim, wblch is variously turned up at the side,
front and all round, faced or made wholly of
Lyons velvet. When the brim ls raised on
one side, lt ls always mounted high, with a
velvet bow, which ls really ibe most impor?
tant part of the decoration, although lace,
leathers and flowers are generally and Indis?
. The mostf elegant hats are those trimmed
only with velvet and a long real oslrlch plume,
ihe coat of which, however, puts them out of
the reach of all but the wealthy.
The fashionable bonnet has a large crown,
and a small brim turned up OB a cornet in
front. It was very much worn In straw last
summer, and ladles wno have Une Tuscan or
English straw bonnets have had them pre?

the brim9 with velvet, renewing the flowers

THE HARTRANFi SCANDAL.
A CLEAR AND CONNECTED HISTORY
OF THE YERKES'BARDON.
Tb? Death Straggle or the Pennsylva?
Charles T. Yerkes, Jr., was a banker In
Philadelphia, John F. Hartranft is auditor
general of the State of Pennsylvania, and
Robert W. Mackey ia State treasurer. Har?
tranft and Mackey made Yerkes's banking
house a depository of the State funds. Their
object was the use of these funds for their pri?
vate stock operations. The funds were so
used. This ls proved from Yerkes's books.
The books show that neither Hartranft nor
Mackey had put up a penny for m&rglns, the
State bonds alone being used for that pur?
pose. Everthlng was going on swimmingly
when the Chicago fire startled the country.
Stocks went down like lead. The State
bondi lo Yerkes's hands were used up in fill?
ing Hartranit's and Mackey'8 margins Yerkes
was tied up. He hardly knew where to turn.
He had no time to get money from Hartranft
or Mackey. In this dilemma he went to Mar?
cer, the city treasurer of Philadelphia, and
made an arrangement ior the UBB of three
hundred thousand dollars of the olly's funda.
He got the money Immediately, and put lt up
on Hartranft's and Mackey'* margins. This
amount made Yerkes perfectly easy. The
stock market, however, was pauloky, and con?
tinued to go down. Mercer's friends became
awaro of his arrangement with Yerkes, and
advised him to get out of lt. Oa the spur of
the moment, without any Intimation to
Yerkes, ii ar ce r drew his check on bim for
three hundred thousand dollars. Yerkes was
unable to pay this check, and his concern
went down like a ship la a whirlpool.
The people of Philadelphia were Incensed,
and the authorities, who would gladly have
protected Yerkes and Marcer if they had
dared, were compelled to Institute criminal
prosecutions. The grand jury Indicted both
Whoa these criminal proceedings were first
proposed, Hartranft and Mackey were terri'
bly alarmed. They knew that Yerkes had
documentary evidence implicating them. Both
fled the State. They sent friends to Yerkes,
Imploring him to conceal the evidences of
their complicity. Yerkes replied that be
would not go to prison to save '.hem. They
then brought him aa autograph pledge from
Governor Geary, promising to Interpose exe?
cutive clemency in case of conviction. This
satisfied Yerkes. He shielded them. He did
not put In defence his authority from Hart?
ranft and Mackey to use the State money.
Roth Yerkes and Marcer were convicted, and
sentenced to two years and nine months lo
But after Governor Geary's pledge was
made, Yerkes went before Alderman Dough?
erty and made affidavit that Hartranft caused
the funds of the State to be deposited with him
for the express purpose of stock operations In
which Hartranft and Mackey were Interested,
and that he bad paid Hartranft various sums of
money as the profit of said stock operations.
He also swore that be used the State money
In the purchase of loans of ihe Commonwealth,
which loans were Bold to the State sinking
lund at a large profit, Hartranft receiving a
large share of said profits. Yerkes further- ]
more swore that on other State deposits he?
bad paid Hartranft and Mackey Interest at the
rate ol six per cent, and that said money had <
never been accounted for io the people. This ]
affidavit Yerkes placed lu the hands of a con- ,
Aden Hal friend. i
The evidence against Yerkes was BO strong ]
that Governor Geary did not dare to pardon ,
him. He was immured lu prison. Hariranft i
afterward became cindi date for Governor. 1
The affidavit ot Yerkes was scattered broad- 1
cast over the State, and had a most damaging i
effect on Hartranft's prospects. He could
make no reply, for the proofs were over- 1
whelming. He had but one hope. That was \
lo force a denial from Yerkes of the authen- .
Hoity ot the affiJavlr. For a month past, 1
Yerkes has virtually been la solitary confine- ,
men*, the members of the Pennsylvania Bing
alone belog allowed to see him. It would ap- 1
pear that a pardon was persistently held out
to him as the price of bis denial of the affida?
vit. At the same lime the Ring apparently
experienced some trouble with Governor
Geary. He seemed to dread public sentiment,
and, while he quailed before the Cameron
Ring, he would not be driven by lt.
At this Juncture, on September 26, the Presi?
dent of the Uolted States went to Philadelphia
at the request of the Bing, and was privately
closeted In the Continental Hotel for four -
hours, with Simon Cameron, District Attorney
Swope, and similar politicians. The result of
this caucus ls shown in Governor Geary's par?
don. Ou the fuliowlng day, Swope, who is '
United Slates district attorney for the West?
ern District of Pennsylvania, Colonel Lee, Ihe
private secretary of Governor Geary, Mayor
Stokely, ot Philadelphia, J. L. Hill, William
Baldwin, Thomas Prloe and Alexander Irwin,
Jr., visited the Cherry HUI prison. Swope and
Lee went Into Yerkes's cell, and, after nearly
an hour's conversation, the warden entered
with Governor Geary's pardon. Mayor Stoke?
ly and Swope theo rode through the street
with Yerkes up to the Grant headquarters.
What followed ? Within a bait hour after
his release au unsworn statement signed by
Yerkes appeared, declaring Hariranft's inno?
cence of the charges preferred against him,
and asserting that the affidavit made before
Alderman Dougherty is a forgery-that he had
been represented belora the alderman by
another mao. He also named five men, ap?
parently respectable, who declared that they
had no hesitation in saying that the signature
to the affidavit is not that of Yerkes's. This
unsworn ?talement ls now being strewn over
all the counties of Pennsylvania, in the vain
hope that it will stem the tide that threatens
to engulf the Ring.
The statement on Its face is false. Ia lt
While a victim toots made of me, dupes have
been made ol others by a few designing men,
who used everything and everybody wu tun
their reach for the purpose of circulating and
publishing assenions aud statements which
were false In the extreme, with the object ol
breaking down the character ol'General Hart?
ranft, In the hopes of thereby preventing his
election, which they felt assured would in?
sure silence lu regard to and settlement of
their nefarious transactions.
If Hartranft and Mackey are Innocent,
Yerkes ls guilty. There Is no dodging Ir, The
evidence ts as clear as noon-day. His own
admissions prove lt. How then can he Bpeak
of himself as a "victim V Who has made a
victim of him if lt is not Hartraofc and Mackey?
Alderman Dougherty declares that he
knows Yerkes well, and that Yerkes was the
man who appeared before him on December
23, 1871, and swore to and signed the affida?
vit Implicating Hartranft. He also says that
the original affidavits were presented to him
subsequently by a person unknown to bim,
and be was asked if they were authentic. He
then stated, as he states now, that the signa?
tures thereto are the genuine signatures of
himself and Yerkes, and that the papers were
brought to the office and sworn to by Yerkes
Hartranft's account with Yerkes, taken
frcai the latter's ledger, and printed in full In
the Sun of August 21, proves the truth of the
affidavit made before Alderman Dougherty.
These figures show stock transactions by
Yerkes for Hartranfr amounting to nearly a
million of dollars. There ls but one entry lor
cash deposited, and thal Is for $1600; but even
the deposit of this small sum ls more than
counterbalanced by $6566 27 checked out In
cash by Hartranit. Did the Bing endeavor to
force Yerkes to declare that these figures
were forged, and did be refuse ? Was that
why he was kept lu solitary confinement for
a month subject lo the Influences of the Came?
ron Ring '
But the affidavit made before Alderman
Dougherty ls sustained by official documents,
also printed In the San ot August 21. These
documents show that Hartranit was authorized !
LO purchase $600,000 In State bonds on behalf |
of the sinking lund commissioners, on April
14, 1870. Letters to Hartranit from E. M.
Lewis, president of the Philadelphia Farmers'
and Mechanics' National Bank, show that
Y/erkea purchased over $400,000 of these bonds,
and a letter from Hartranit ls printed sanc?
tioning these purchases. Mr. Lewis's sworn
testimony before the war claims oommittee ls
also printed. Here ls what he says:
I had a very full conference with General
Hartranit as io the method of making these
Purchases. * * * I employed Mr. Chas.
. Yerkes, Jr., as the most competent man, In
my Judgment, lo effect the transaction and
purchases, and the one most likely to Bucceed.
Q. Was he a broker In good standing at
that time t A. Very good; such good Bund?
ine that since then my bank bas loaned him
$200,000. * * * W? have a broker to
whom we send our ordinary business, but
when we have any operation ol a kind that re
?al res secrecy, or talent of a particular order
Addition, Division and Slienoej-we endeavor
io secure the services of some gentleman who
is fitted to carry lt ont In the best way.
Q. Mr. Yerkes occupied that position at
that lime ? A. Yes. I think my letters will
show that Mr. Yerkes went over our books.
We don't allow gentlemen to go over our books
of Ibe State loan, but we Bent lor Mr. Yerkes
to take off from our books the large holders.
He took off ihe names and went to the parties
and offered to buy their loans. He offered lo
give them anything they would take.
Why don't the Pennsylvania Ring get Mr.
Lewis to swear lhat his letters are forgeries,
and that somebody personated him before ibe
war claims committee ?
Tne evidence against both Hartranft and
Yerkes ls overwhelming. Yerkes has been
convicted far unlawful nae of the olly money,
but he has not yet been convicted of the un?
lawful uso of the State money. When Mr.
Buckalow ls elected Governor, Yerkes may get
full justice, and it is not imponible that John
F. Hartranit and Robert W. Mackey may ac?
company him to tho penitentiary.

The Mackey or Regular Republican County

yesterday morning, reassembled ata little after
eleven, and proceeded to the nomination of
candidates for the General Assembly. It was
evident that lt was upon, the distribution of
these much coveted nominations that the
struggle of the convention was to be expect?
ed, and there was a long, rambling debate
over ihe manner of making the nominations.
This was ended by the adoption of the foliow
lowing resolution, which was offered by Sheriff j
Mackey as a sort of gene; al pacificator :

selves, there were 63 voles for Amos Bllzen

B. W. BROW.*, COLORED,
vas declared the nominee.
This completed the nominations from the
jountry parishes, and the nomination of re?
presentatives from the city was next attempt
id. It was understood that this would pro?
voke a general row, In ismuch as almost every
ieiogate from the city was working for his
Dwu nomination to the Assembly, and the ex?
pectation of a disturbance was very fully re- ]
illzed. The ball was opened by one L. J. Tay?
lor, a colored delegate from Ward 8, who made
i savage speech In denunciation of what ho
termed a trick to notclnate some Democrats
on the ticket. He ap pealed to tbe passions
and prejudices of the rural delegates, and, aa
Tar as his Incoherent 1 inguage could be trans?
lated Into a semblance of the King's Eng?
lish, it was understood to be in favor
of a straight-out Republican ticket, with?
out regard to any considerations of J
policy or success Before the people. This was
only the prelude to a whole series of similar
harangues, in the course of which the mem?
bers, becoming wholly unable to restrain their
patriotic enthusiasm, rose to the floor en
masse and surged and crowded around tbe
little table where thu officers were seated;
much to the disgust and discomfiture ol those
amiable and long-suffering persons. One del
egate named Robinson, from Ward 6, having
Imbibed freely of tbe knock-kneed whiskey
sold in the vicinity,wns particularly obstreper?
ous, and displayed a heroic persistence in
rising to abstruse so-called points of order, and
plunged the convention Into deeper and denser
disorder at every moment. Various efforts were
made to dislodge him from the floor, and to
get him Into his seat, but he was no sooner
rapped down by the muscular chairman than
be came up again like a jumplcg-Jack, and be
was aa skilful as an eel In eluding the blan?
dishments or the sergeauts-at-arms, who were
wisely endeavoring lo get him into the fresh
air on the outside of the building. Nomina?
tions of aspirants foi legislative honors were
in the meantime bel ag rained down in tor?
rents by the excited delegates, and the follow?
ing names were heard amid the din and duly
recorded: H. C. Mit ott, B. C. McPherson, R.
C. Barkley, F. C. Hiller, N. S. Robertson,
J. L. Walker, II. J. Mears, M. E.
Grant, J. A. Wil lam?, A. T. Williams,
Alfred. Bernard, H. W. Hendricks, E. J.
Adams, J. C. Haz?l, Robert C. DeLarge,
Abram Taylor, Geor/ce Shouber, M. B. Gran?
ville, James Lacoste, Charles Simmons, Peter
Miller and P. L. Miller. Vigorous attempts
at pacification wera being made by the chair?
man and others during the whole turmoil,
but they all proved unsuccessful, until at
about ten o'clock some sensible delegate
moved an adjournment until ten o'clock to?
day. This motion was pnt by the chairman,
and waa answered by vociferous yells both in |
the afllrmate and negative, bnt lt was deolded
carried, and tbe chairman having thrown
down bis gavel and left the hall, the .1 alni tor,
with well-timed economy, turned ofT the gas,
and the straggling mass of delegates finally |
vacated the building.

cepted the office of probate Judge at the hands
