Tho Mayor of Trenton has been In

1 ical option law, in allowing; a friend
t take a drink out of his bottle. The
jmlge. in that circuit construes tho law
to mean that "no person can sell or
give away'1 intoxicating Hipiors with
out violating tho law. The ca.se will
probably be taken to the supreme
court. Albany Ledger.

Ceo. 1. Cramer has been hero this
week doting up masters pertaining to
the prospecting for coal. The coinpuny
has sunk about $1,00 hunting for coal
and Mr. Cramer bays they do uot fell
disposed to invest more. He thinks it
probable that a drift run on one of the
small veins iu the shalt might develope
a paying quantity, and estimates that
it will cost about f-'utj to do the work,

our people to contribute, when they

A newspaper that has opinions and
has the temerity to express them per
haps creates more antagonism than
people of any other profession. The
world is nearly six thousand years old
but has yet to learn tolerance. Instead
of allowing freedom of thought, men
still pursecuto each other for opinion
sake. While thu man who has ideas
and gives them out meets with the
storms and shocks of opposing minds
waves of opinions, his positiou is an
enviable one compared to tho men who
are continually hiding and skulking
aud in continual terror lest they should
m an unguarded moment express an
opinion. Fulton lelegraph.

"The Irish and American, ami the
Irish-American, I think, is the best
detective. Hut 1 have men of all na
tionalities employed- I have to have
them, because some of our cases involve
European trips and detective work in
Europe. If we are working a case
which leads us to Paris, we send a
Vrenchtnau thore.and so with any other
European country. We have to employ
men of various clashes, also for differ
ent kinds of work. We have to send
men on racetracks to watch for pick
pockets, and wc have to send other to
balls to protect the jtwelry of guests."

of our men, when they are working out
men, when they are working on a case
act directly under instructions, and are
very rarely called upon to use their

telegraph keep us constantly informed
of their movements. Occasionally an
operative will find himself obliged to
take ft step without consulting us, when
ho is unable to reach us, but that dot s

important coses are worked out through
tho heads of our bureau, our superin

of all engaged in the work."
'Do women make good detectives?"
'No, they do not. We employ some,

is talkativeness; they cau't be trusted
