Yehtbhpay was the warmest day we
have experienced this month, yet tbe
heat was not at all oppressive, and n
cool breeze toned it down toe delightful

to be apocryphal. Judge Dillon of New

The whole incident of the vieit of the
Princess Eulalia to tho I'uited Statea
hae been highly agreeabl". with the
single exception of the tnobbith inter
lude of the Four Hundred in New York.
It ia quite natural that the deacendant
of Isabella should receive an enthusias
tic greeting in New York and Chicago
on such an interesting anniveroaiy.
This ie by no means the li ret occasion on
which royal and imperial personages
have visited this country. Early in the
centuty Jerome Bonaparte, the brnthir
of Napoleon 1., visited Baltimore and
took occasion while there to marry Mist
Patterson. After tho overthrow of :he
empire another of tho emperor's broth
ers honored a New Jersey town with hie
presence for some yearr. William IV.

sometime in New York city early iv
the century. Louis Philippe, who waa
a much traveled man, rut in quite a
while in tbe United States, penetrating
as far west as the head ol tho Ohio, at
Pittsburg. The Prince of Wales visited
this country in 1860, under the tutelage
of the Duke o! Newcastle. Prince Na
poleon —the famous Plon-Ploo —paid us
an extended visit while the civil war was
still raging, and the Grand Duke Alexis
• made a triumphal entry it;!o New York
in 1871 or 1872. The last royal visitor we
can recall was the Princess Louise, who.
by the way, aecoinpeniud by the Mar
suie of Lome, paid Los Angeles and the
Ban Gabriel valley a brief vieit. She
would have remained here if it had not
been for the fact that ehe could not get
suitable accominodntiona at that time.
Falling in this effort she went to the
West Indies, where she remained lor
THE SPECIAL SESSION ASSURED.

on hand, will of itself have a great effect
in quieting whst looks like an incipient
panic amongat the bankers of the oast.
The Melt in ley bill and tne silver and
Chinese questions will then receive
early, and. doubtless, Winn consideration.
The newspnpera are already busy fore
casting the issue ol the mlver question ;
end toe Washington Htar, which in gen
erally well informed, says that tho Hher
man ailver set will bo repealed. This Is
hy no mesne improbable. The great
crime involved in the demonetization of
nilver in 1878 will thus be supplemented
by another at the dictation of Errgliab
and other European capitalists, and
silver will be sent hurtling down to join
copper as one of the base metals. This
is the shape that feudal robbery takes
in the present year of grace. The gold
bugs are bound to have their pound of
flesh at all hnzards. It is smuttier chap

Can great robbing infamies like the
demonetization of silver be accomplished
without some form of retribution? We
do not think they can. Tho masses,
finding their condition greatly harassed
by tho stringency in the money market,
brought about by the absolute demon
etization of silver, will begin metaphys
ical diecuasions about debt. Lees Mian
a hundred yeare ago a creditor could
take hi* debtor, who eitaer could not or
would not pay, and put him in jail, and
keep him there. The sensitive human

dispensation, aud the creditor no longer
owns tr% debtor, body, boots and
breeches. We have no doubt, and we
are not all pessimistic by temperament,
that the ultimata effect of forcing the
adoption of the single gold standard,
and thus exacting the payment of all
debts in a dearer medium and one
harder to get, than that which waa un
derstood when tiiH contincts were made,
will be to bring about the repudiation

It is not extravagant praiso to say that
Booth stood at the very head of his pro
fession in the delineation oi the great
dramatic characters of Shakspeare.
None of his contemporaries have ranked
with Dim in portraying the subtle eccen
tricities of Hamlet, the studied devil
tries of lago, or the calculating devices
of Shylock. (lis genius w:vi hereditary ;
but bis methods were his owu. He \v»s
a close student, and devoted himself so
wholly to his art that he was really a
child in his knowledge of affairs out
side of it.
But whilst Booth exacted tbe admira
tion of the public by his eminence aa au
actor his gentle nature nnd generous im
pulses drew to him tbe hearts of all
men. The public loved liim for his
kindly traits of character, for the sweet
ness of hia disposition, the purity of hia
life and for the broad sympathies that
went out from him to every deserving
man or object. He was, indeed, a
lover of hia kind, and was always ready
to make substantial sacrifices in order to

teem. He never failed to lend a help

give honest counsel to those who
I needed it.
He waa the victim of a great and un
speakable sorrow which weighed upon
him with the pressure of a mountain for
nearly thirty yeara nnd down to the
eloie of hia life. When his brother J.
Wilkes Booth sped the bullet that
crashed through the brain of Lincoln,
he at the same time struck a deadly
blow at the peaot of mind of hia great
kinsman. He bequeathed to Edrcin a
lingering death that was more cruel than
death itaeli. E I win never spoke of the
fearful act that brought tears to the eyes
of a whole nation but be suffered in
silence, and calmly accepted the gnawing
of the canker worm that had been so
cruelly implanted in his breaßt. It
changed tho cheerfulness of hie disposi
tion to one of continuous sadness; but
it never changed the goodneea ot his
nature nor the kindly impulses which
made him a friend of the friendless and
a vflry help to all in time of trouble.

iaaue of the Hkrai.d was, in many re

waa, in the first place, a beautifully
printed paper. Then ita "Counterfeit

was one of the very best pieces of work
in its line ever seen in a daily newspa

At a special meeting of the council
hckl yesterday afternoon the proposition
to purchase four hundred acres on the
Providencia rancho for $30,000 was de
feated. Three voted against it and five
for it. As it required a two-thirdß vote
to pass a money measure, tho proposi
tion failed by one vote. The taxpayers
aro to be congratulated on the miscar
riage of this scheme. It w;ts prema
ture, even if the purchase eiionld be
considered indispensable to tho pro
posed new water system. The old water
company's contract has several years to
run, aud that corporation has come to
the relief of the hill people, and they
are assured of as fine a service as the
roat of tha city enjoys. A vessel is on
the way here with pipe that will
enable the company to greatly increaae
and improve the service on the hills.
They have put up a pump of great
power to ratie the water from the lower
main reservoir to the high reservoirs on
the hille, and there is hardly any doubt
that if the vote on the water bonds were
to be submitted to the people today they
would be defeated. Judge Ross's late
decision in the Ventuia Water com
pany's case makes it almost positively
certain that if the city should attempt
now to lesßeu the value of the water
company's franchise by paralleling their
service, we would be plunged into a
costly and losing litigation with that
enrnneaMMl. Our adyicetothe.counc.il
to go slow in tins matter is soilnu.
Los AJMMWi musical people who
heard the beautiful voice of Miss Ellen
Beach Yaw laßt year aro not nt all Bur
prised to learn that New Yorkers are
tilled with astonishment at the phenom
inal range of that young lady's voice.
When Mies Yaw sang here she sev
eral timet took tho high F sharp, which
made our connoisseurs exclaim, "Won
derful! wonderful!" for they never
heard any human voice ascend to that
dizzy height before. In'fact, there is
no record of but two similar cases before
in the world's history. In 1770 Mozart
heard Lucrezia Ajugari sing from G
below the middle O to high C, or over
the extreme range of twenty-five notes.
And the New York Horald Bayß that tho
great Nilson used to paralyze her audi
ences by singing the high F sharp in
Mozart's Magic Flute. A throat special
ist who lately examined Miss Yaw's
larynx, said that her vocal chords were
liner than any lie had ever seen or beard
of; the inferior thyroarytenoid ligament
or true vocal chord having made 2048
vibrations per second. Miss Yaw, who
is about 22 years of age, was born

was a music teacher in the Throop uni

Their wail, regarding the restrictions
placed on the festive celestials, sounds
to the ears of an intelligent and inter
ested public like tbe imbecile drivelling*
of extreme old age,or incipient insanity.
Had they traveled through China, Rus
sia, or even the more civilized nations of
Franco or Germany, and beeu subjected
to the innumerable registrations, restric
tions nnd oven arrests to which foreign
ers are continualy liable, they would
drop their lamentations aud unite with
me in the verdict, that a Chinaman in
the United States has hitherto been the
freest mortal on earth. Free to come to
our country, free to monopolize onr in
dustries, free to practice his outlandish
vices and propagate his repulsive dis
eases, free to defy our laws aud deplete
our finances, and free to levant back to
tbe flowery kingdom with capital lhat
would contribute to the national wealth
and prosperity ii kept at home, and
leaving nothing behind him but the un
savory impresa of his beastly debvich

There seems to have been no actual
limit to his freedom, except it might be
tbe absence of wings, which is a fact to
be deploreo, since if possessed of these,
he might further pander to their pen>

It seema to me that these men make a
shameful public display of innate pusil
lanimity when they endeavor to depict a
national calamity as a conaequence of
the anepenaion of commercial relations
between the two countries. This world
ia a rather spacious concern, and there
are millions of other fields open for
American euterpriee. All around us we
see stupendous mountains bursting l with
undeveloped mineral wealth, and in
numerable smiling valleys awaiting the
magical touch of capital and labor to
bloom forth in profusion, and in their
gushing luxuriance inaugurate an era of
prosperity unparalleled in the history of
