Em Nye Regrets The Decadence of Real
(From the New York World.)
Among the many letters of inquiry re
cieved during the past week is the follow
ing: "Last year I made a trip abroard,
and among other trophies of my visit to
the Old World I secured a fine specimen
of a mummy, for which I paid seventy
five saeudi. While showing it to a friend
last week I discovered that the air of
liuois is detrimental to it and that dis
integrationistaking place. Can you tell
me what is the cause and what I had
better do in order to preserve the speci
Youhave no doubt paid at last seventy
four sondi too much for your mummy,
as mummies go. Nothing is more dis
heartening than the discovery that one's
mummy is not standing our harsh
American climate. But the chances are
that you have the modern style of
mummy, made especially for Americans
by the trade. He is not an antique, and
before August you will have to decide
whether to cast him aside or let him run
the house. The genuine mummy has
been ground up for fertilizing purposes
duri'ng the past twenty years to such an

s us mummies made of coarse people
who 'have died recently are ilooding the
market. A friend of mine purchased a
varnished king, supposed to be over
2,000 years old, for whice he gave It O
sondi and a silk umbrella. In May of
last year he began to asserthimself-the
king did-and to enter more and more
ido.the homelifeof his owner till it was
dkesled to have a coat of shellac put on
him. A house, sign and carriage painted
came up to the house, and while refitting
andiefnrnishing theroyal relics discover

in the refrigerator is a bitter, bitter diE
appointment, and no doubt yours is of
that clas. The modern methods of pre
serving people do not in all cases prove
eatfatory, and I do not know of any
thing more pitiful or more humiliating
than while explaining your mummy to a
coterie of friends in the library to have
him explode on your bands and and re
veanhias true identity. Should disinte
gration continuein the case of your own
mummy, a private funeral is the best
thing I could suggest. Let it be a plain
affair, opening with a select reading or
WiSation, followed by a vocal solo and
a a Oet-to between some good artist and
sthe piano. You could charge a small
asmo oion fee, perhaps, which would go
toward expenses, and close

take the Republican scalp or leave his own
in his enemy's tingers he was loudly
cheered. He said:
"FELLOW CITmZENS,: What has been the
condition of the labor of this country for
the last few years? I have had access to
the advance sheets of the forthcoming
third annual report of Hon. Carroll D.
Wright, Commissioner of Labor. I wish
to quote from it to show that twenty-seven
years of alleged protection has not resulted

cent., were in the States of New York,
Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio and
Illinois, where protection is claimed to
have wrought such wonders for the labor
"There were lockouts during the same
period in 2,182 establishments. Of these,
1.981, or 90.3 per cent., occurred in the
five States named. The number of em

"Will any gentleman say, in the face of
these great disturbances; that the condition
of the labor of this country is entirely sat
isfactory to the laborer? Has he derived
that unmixed blessing from high taxation
which was promised him?
"What is the Mills bill? Is there free
trade in it? Is there danger to labor in it?
Not at all. It is a bill which proposes to
take $878,000 off of chemicals; $1,756,000
off of earthen and glass ware; $11,480,000
off of sugar; $331,000 off of provisions;
$227,000 off of cotton goods; $2,042,000
off of hemp, jute and flax goods; $12,
330,000 off of wo-lens; $3,000 off of hooks
and papers, and $1,090,000 off of sundries.
It is also proposed to add to your free list
flax, hemp, jute, chemicals, salt, tin plate,
wool and other things, amounting to $22,
189,000, making in all a tariff reduction of
$53,720,000. It proposes to make reduc
tions in the internal revenue of $24,455,
000, or a grand total of tax reduction from
tariff an, internal revenue sources of $78,
176,000-more than a dollar and a quarter
to every individual, or six dollars for every
family in the United States. And the
plain, simple question to be presented here
today is: Will we take this burden off or
will we leave it on? Will we free com
merce, leaving it unshackled, or will we
keep it hampered? Will we continue to
hoard up a corrupting surplus or will we
leave the money in the pockets of the peo
ple, where it justly belongs?
"The battle is to he waged on principle
on our side. The question involved is
whether the people shall be taxed beyond
the necessities of government or not.
Concerning that question I have no kind
of fear. I know full well that when the
ides of November shall come, it will have
been determined by the voice of New
York, by the voice of Indiana, by the
voice of Niew Jersey, by the voice of Con
necticut, by the voice of the Pacific z!ope,
by the voice of a large majority of the
American people, that for four more years
the White He-use is to be occupied by that
grand statesman, Grover Cleveland, and
by that incomparable daughter of New
York, his beautiful wife. It will also have
been determined that once more the Senate
of the United States is to have for its pre
siding officer that man who, of all others,
made the greatest impress when there, the
Hon. Allen G. Thurman.
"I claim, fellow-citizens, that the politi
cal organization known as the Republican
party has violated these sacred principles
ever since it came into power. One of its
first acts of hostility to good government
after the war closed was directed against
the Chief Magistrate of the United States.
When Andrew Johnson found himself
President of the Republic, he had the pa.
triotism and the boldness to hold aloft the
Constitution and proclaim it as the supreme
law of the land. He began the work of
pardon and reconciliation to reunite a dis
tracted people. Tenure of office acts and
impeachment prosecution were resorted to
by our Republican opponents to get rid of
the Constitution's defender.
"The next step taken was to establish
carpetbag government and military rule in
the South, and disfranchise her people.
How well they succeeded years of suffering
and maladministration bear testimony.
When impartial histories shall have been
written it will appear that of all the gov
ernments ever devised for the t<.rture and
robber) of a free people, carpetbsg rule
has been the most efficient.
"Nor is this all, my countrymen. Un
der the a&cts of Congress granting lands to
railroads, if the roads were not built in a
specified time the lands were to be forfeited.
They were to revert to the people. Part
of the roads were not so huilt. You will
say: 'Surely, Virginians, no man could (1b
ject to reclaiming the lande' Ah, there
was a Virginian in the Senate in the F'orty
seventh Congress who so far forgot Vir
ginia that he joined the opponents of
Demgocracy and deposed the Democratic
organization of that body and foisted upon
it an organiz tion which refused to declare
upon it an organization which refused to
declare these land, forfeited, or reclaim
one single acre of them for the people.
Need I say that I tefer to your senior- Sen
ator, General Mahone? He asks your en
dorsement. Are you reaoy to give it, after
he has thus made it impossible for you to
reclaim, during the Forty-severith Con
gress this vast domain-your birthright
and heritage? Never while the waters
flow! never while the grasses grow! never
while Virginia's sons retain the spirit of
of Virginia's sires will this glorious old
Commonwealth endorte a man who thus
stood in the way of the reclamation of our
wasted public lands " [ Applause.]
Hydrophobia at Mount Holly.
MOUNT HoLLY, July 4,-Justice Chas.
R. Fennimore, a well-known citizen living
near Delanco, died last night from the
effects of a bite by a rabid dog received
over three months ago. The wound was
cauterized soon afterward and quickly
healed, leaving a slight scar on his arm and
wrist where the dog had teized him, and
he experienced no inconvenience until
Thursday last, when he felt strangely un
easy on drinking a glass of ice-water. The
day before he had been out superintending
the harvesting of some wheat and was
caught in a shower which wetted him to
the skin and caused a chill Immediately
afterward the symptoms of hydrophobia
began to display themselves, and he con
tinued to grow worse until last night, when
he expired in a terrible spasm. The best
medical skill failed to alleviate his agony.

Flack's Fatal Attempt to Shoot the Niagara
NIAGARA F.AMtis. Ont., .1ludy 4.-Ri-bert
W. Flack of Syracuse, with his l'hantotu
boat, went throug ,h the rapids this after
noon. The boat turned upside down three
times in passing the rapids. When it was
recovered from the whirlpool its occ:upant
Flack started on his trip at precisely 3
o'clock. His boat upset after passing
under the Cantilever Suspension Bridgo,
but righted immediately. It was a brave
fight for both man and brat through the
roughest part of the perilous rapids, and
they were tossed in all directions, being
frequently out of sight. At last the boat
turned completely over and remained so on
entering the whirlpool.
It was fully twenty minutes before a
boat reached the spot where Flack was
last seen, and it was 5.40 P. M. when his
body was recovered anti taken to the Can
Flack was 39 years of age. He was
born in England and served four years he
fore the mast in the English service. He
leaves a widow and six children, the eldest
being but 12 years of age. His body was
taken to Syracuse tonight.
The boat in which Flack met his death
was of his own invention, and called by
him The Phantom. The craft had a
straight keel, fifteen feet long, with four
feet nine inches beam, and a depth of
thirty-four inches at the stem and stern.
The keel was an oak plank two by six
inches. and weighed fifty-two pounds. A
wrought iron shoe extending its entire
length weighed torty-six pounds.
A small wheel was ,et between the oak
rudder and the stern of the boat. A shaft
ran from the propeller to the cockpit,
where it was revolved with two cranks,
handled much as a carpenter manipulates
a boring machine. Then straps were pro
vided to fasten the boatman to the boat.
Nearly all of the space of the boat was in
closed and covered with decks, but there
were no air chambers.
Flack invented a composition much
lighter than cork, which was fastened
through in the inclosed parts of the boat,
serving both as cushions and to insure
bouyancy. The rudder was worked by
cords running from the cockpit. Alto
gether the weight of the craft did not ex
ceed 500 pounds.
Flack said that he intended the inven
tion to serve as a life boat, and that he de
sired to test it a few times in the whirl
pool. On either side of the boat were
fastened looks of cord to which ship
wrecked people could cling until rescued.
PICTAILS IN A PREDICAMENT.
They Can't Get Away from Wyoming and
v Are Imprisoned if They Remain.
TAcon, Wy. T., July 4.-A question
of great importance under the Chinese Re
striction Act has just been determined in
the District Court hete. A number of
Chinamen had been arrested under the Act,
soon after crossing the British Columbia
line, for being unlawfully in the United
States. They were tried at Seattle and
sent to the United States penitentiary in
this county for six months. The terms of
some of them expired some time ago, and
a Unsted .States Marshal for Washington
Territory took some of them, in accord
ance with the sentence of the court, back
to British Columbia; but the authorities
there refused to allow the Chinese to land
without the payment of the tax of $50 per
head imposed under their laws. This the
Marshal had no authority to pay, and ac
cordingly took the prisoners back to the
penitentiary, where they now are. Thirty
five have served out their sentences. A
writ of habeas corpus was sued out in be
half of Num Choey, one of their number,
and his case made a test one.
Judge Nash decides that the Marshal
and the Warden of the penitentiary have
no authority to detain the Chinese and are
clearly in contempt of court in not having
returned them to British Columbia. He
has granted a stay of proceeding under
the writ until July 6, that the Marshal may
communicate with the authorities at Wash
ington before setting the men free.
The Marshal says he will, in accordance
with the further ruing of Judge Nash, re
arrest the Chinese, as soon as they are set
free, and bring them again before the court
on a second charge of being unlaw fully in
United States territory. This leaves the
Chinese in a peculiar situation. They can
not get out of the United States unless
some one will pay the British tax of $50
per head, and if they stay here they are
liable to be arrested and be sentenced twice
a year to a six months' term in the peniten
tiary~, the imprisonment to keep going on
as long as they stay in the country.
There are about one hundred Chinese in
the penitentiary whose terms for being
here unlawfully will shortly expire, and
these are the only Mongolians in this part
of the country. The climate is evidently
unhealthy for them. If the law doesn't
send them up, something else does.
