'Richmond, Va*, March 5, 1893.
There were 'but two members of the
Legislature at the Capitol to-day. They
'?were Senator 'Barksdaie and Delegate
James N. Stubbs. Everybody else, even
down to the pages, have gone home.
Governor Tyler was at his office early,
?but did not remain as long' as usual.
Applications for the office of Labor
Commissioner' arc still coming In. In
addition to !Mr. James B. Doherty, of
Richmond; Mr. John IM. Donahoe, of
this -city, and Mr. Fred. Alnepach, of
Bedford City, have made applications in
writing. Some others have applied In
person and will later submit their en?
dorsements. The Governor will not
make this appointment for several days.
The Legislature 'broke all previous
records on the number of bills passed.
There were about fifteen hundred intro?
duced and 1,023 became laws. Gover?
nors O'Fcrrall and Tyler vetoed eight.
The time in which candidate- for the
city offices who are to run in the Dem?
ocratic primary were allowed to an?
nounce themselves expired at noon to?
day. "Mayor Taylor and Colonel John

number of candidates for the Council,
among the new ones being Major 10. T.
? D. Myers, president of the Richmond,
Frederlcksburg and Potomac road, for
Alderman In Clay ward.
The Democratic League for Good
Government has tickets for the Council
in four wards and next week will con?
duct a lively canvass in their behalf.
The primary comes off on the 15th of
this month. It Is expected that there
will be about 11,000 votes polled.
It is said Hon. George ?. Wise lias
?positively decided to run for Congress.
I There ks talk also of Hon. Isaac I5lgg*
and Mr. H. Qu". Smith, Jr., entering the
race. Captain Lamb will stand for re?
election. Colonel Elicit will not run.
He Is out of polities and Is giving his
entire attention to business schemes.
?aVo one here seems able to tell why
the appointment of a postmaster for
Richmond is being held up. Whenever
the appointment is made Mr. Wray T.
Knight will get it. as. he has the sup?
port of Judge Waddlil, Colonel Brady
and Judge Lewis.
When Judge Waddlil succeeds Judge
Hughes all of the members of the Re?
publican State Executive Committee
will have secured oflleos. Colonel
Brady and Mr. Park Agnew are Col?
lectors of Internal Revenue, Colonel S.
Brown Allen Is Marshal in the West?

members of the committee have appar?

begin, in this city, and, within the

will be hoard in the case of the iVnn

of Company A, First Regiment Infan?
try. The defendant was several
months ago tried by a general court
martial, found guilty and lined ?2. The
point being raised in some quarters
that a fine imposed by a court-martial
could not be collected, it was deemed
best to mnke Mr. Miller's case a test
case, although he was perfectly willing
to pay his line. Captain Frank M.
Wood, the Judge advocate of the court
martial, will .argue the case on bchajlf
of the Commonwealth, while Lieuten?
ant-Colonel George Wayne Anderson
Will represent Private Miller. Until
the Court of Appeals hands down an

will be tried by the general court

Washington. March 5, 1898. ,
The developments at the State, War
and Navy Departments In connection
with the Spanish situation have di?
vided themselves Into two distinct
branches,' onv; relating to the Maine
coifrt of Inqiiiry and the other the natu?
ral nnd necessary steps to place the
naval and mill tat y arms of the service
on an elHcient basis. Concerning the
court and Its work, the information
reaching the authorities here is of the
most fragmentary character, and the
highest naval officials reiterate that
nouhlng Is at hand to Indicate even the
tendencies of the'members of the court
from the evidence they luve thus far
The other general branch of the sub?
ject, the activity in the various naval
and military bureaus, continues with?
out reference to the work of the court
of Inquiry. Thus activity up to t"*> pres?
ent time has not taken the form of any
concerted or elaborate pi in of emer?
gency preparations, but has been mani?
fest mainly through comparatively ml
.nor acts, which, taken together, have
shown that the heads or departments
were not inactive in preparing their
branches of the service for any require?
ments which it was possible might be
made upon them.
?A member or the Cabinet stated to?
day that there should be no misunder?
standing or misconstruction of these
steps. For instance, all of the mani?
fold . movements, particularly In the
West, or war material are declared sim?
ply to be in execution or plans long i^"
developed by the Fortifications Hoard
for the defense of tin- coast.
There Is no concealment of the fact,
however, that the administration is lm
pri ssed with a. sense <>r duly in putting
the tw> war branches in the high s;
s twite of emclecy 'to m ? : any emergen?

vantage of making us familiar with the
Childhood of those who have afterward
attained to greatness and whose names
have been inscribed on the imperishable
records of history or Tame. Select a
grecHt man, and we are immediately re?
ferred to 'Instances of precocity in his
infancy or childhood, which were the
precursors of his future ccletbrlty or tho
guide post which pointed to his genius.
There have, no d'Jubt, been many In?
fant prodigies, and there "have been
some who have been palmed oiT as such
who have nj> claim warnte?er to the
distinction. Miss Mlheita Crummies
I was described by her father, Mr. Vin?
cent Crummies?of theatrical fame?as
Ahe Infant phenomenon, whose talent
was r.oo great for wards, and who must
toe seen to be ever so faintly appreciat?
ed. Miss Crummies was rather an el?
derly infant. Her father confessed to
Nicholas Nickleby that she had iturned
ten, but ithis was rather too 'modest an
estimate, for her age had remained
stationary for several years.
There are, however, many ?well-au
ithentlcated instances of yputhtul pre?
cocity which may be held no have
presaged subsequent greatness. Take
the case of William Pitt. His genius
asserted itself with nn almost unex?
ampled quickness. When he was but
>:w Ivo years of age, his mcil'lier wrote
of ihlm: "The fineness of William's
mind makes him enjoy with the great?
est pleasure what would be above the.
reach of any other creature lot his
small age." Being of ah extremely del?
icate Constitution, it was deemed Inad?
visable to send him to a public school,
and his oduencion was conducited pri?
vately at Maine. When he went up to j
Cambridge in 177.1. his knowledge of the
classics Is" stalled to have surprised
veteran critics, although this was of j
the moat .superficial character. At
twenty-ihee years of age he was made
Chancelldr of the Exchequer, and a year
Jatcr First Lord of the Treasury. Thus,
at about twenty-live years of age. he
became the most powerful subject in
England, and for many years held his
great position as tho ruler of cabinets,
the favorite of t-he sovereign, the hero
Of Parliament, and the idol of the nation
Another statesman and politician who
gave an early indication of such talents
which were to gain him such distinction
hater on 'was Macaulay. As a cblld
he had a don tempt for toys, a passion
for books, and the vocabulary of a ped?
agogue. At uhe .manure age of four
years be was on a visit to Lady Waldo
grave at Strawlx rry Hill, where a serv?
ant spilt some hot coffee over his legs.
Wheni after awhile, the hostess asked
ihe ISiitle fellow htow he felt, he replied,
with great dignity: 'Thank you. madam,
the agony has abated." Tt was about
this time that a maid Had(thrown away
as rubbish certain oyster shells with
which ho used to mark his own little
plot or ground at the back of hi*
! father's house at Clapham. Hav?
ing discovered the sacrilege, Ma?
caulay at once repaired to the
drawing room, where his mother
was entertaining some guests
and walking into the circle, ho some?
what startled the visitors by saying:
"Cursed be Saly; Tor it 'is written:
'Cursed bo he that removcHth his neigh?
bor's landmark.' " When,, as' a very
small boy, he was about to be sent to
school, his mother n Id him that Tor the
future ho would have to learn 'to study
I without the solace of bread and butter.
I The reply was prompt and pompous:
j "Yes. mamma, industry shall be my
bread, and attention my'hut'ler." When
he was 'barely seven, Macaulay showed
his bent for historical studies by writ?
ing a compendium of Universal History,
which, his mother slated, gave a tol?
erably connected view of the leading
events from the creation down to the
author's own tme. in poetry, Macau?
lay was equally ambitious in his child?
hood days, and his whole youth was
full of examples of his cleverness which
he afterward displayed as statesman,
historian, poet, critic, and orator.
To turn, for a moment, from politics
to literature, pure and simple, -we g t
the name of Samuel Johnson. wb\ as a
boy. Leslie Stephen tells us, was re?
garded as something Of an Infant prod?
igy. "Iiis great powers -of memory,
eharaat rlstic of a mind singularly re?
tentive of all impressions, was early
developed. He seemed to learn by in?
tuition." His early powers wereitheugnl
to be traceable to the following epitaph,
which he was said to have composed at
Che age of three:
"Hero lies good master duck
W'hom Samuel Johnson trod on;
If it had lived iit had been good luck.
For then we had had an odd one."
It does not detract from the Doctor's
reputation when the confession is made
chat the verses were not his, but his
father's, and that the tokens he gave
of his future eminence were much mor<
striking than doggerel of this kind.
These examples pale into tut tor insig?
nificance before some others chat can !???
cited. In a German work published
at L?beck In Oottingen, the most won?
derful case "t" precocity ever heard of is
rel.i; d Christian Henry Heinksen, who
was l orn in L?beck in 1721, on the com?
pletion of the firs-t year of his a.ge had
committed ;?> memory and could recite
the piincipal facts contained In the five
books of Moser, with a number of verses
on the Creation. In his fourteen h
month, so we are assured, "lie knew nil
the history of th ? Bible; in his thir?
teenth month, the history of the na?
tions of antiquity, geography, anatomy,
the use or maps, and nearly 8.000 Latin
words; before the end of the third year,
the history of Denmark and the gen. -
alogy of the crowned heads of Europe
in his fourth year he acquired the doc?
trine of divinity, with the proofs from
the r.ibie, ecclesiastical history, the in?
stitutions, 200 hymns, with their tun s.
eighty psalms, entire chapters of the
Old and New Testaments, 1,600 verses
and sentiences from the ancient Latin
classics, almost the whole 'Onbis Ple?
ins' t>f ? mn nins, from which he had
derived all his knowledge of the Latin
tongue, arithmetic and the history of
the European emplr's ?" ?-?-'?

celebrated all over 'ItJunape under the

and died June 27, 1725, u-ged tour years,

imofft amazing proofs of -Intellectual

Chicago, March 5.?The Times-Herald

professor of pathology nnd bacteriol?
ogy In tho Post Graduate Medical
School, has discovered the cause of yel?
low fever. As a fesult of a series of
experiments extending over two months
?he lias isolated the amoolm, which is
without doubt responsible for the dis?
ease, nnd he has been ablo to trace lt?
developments through a number of
stases In the various organs of the body.
The germ !s not a ?baccilus, but an
amoeba. It causes Inflammation of the
stomach when swallowed, and then In
the duodenum It issumes a true sporlu
nating form, appearing here much like
a blackberry. From there It mitigates
to the liver, where It appears as a large
structureless body about twice the size
of the red blood corpuscle. Its effect Is
a rapid degeneration of the liver cells.
While Professor Klebs is confident he
has obtained the yellow fever germ, he
will not malte any scientific claim In
this direction until he h:is been able to
obtain live germs and make cultures
and animal experiments with them.
