VANITY THAT HAS NO EQUAL

AhIch for n Dlvlnion of tho
Bereaved Wifo'a Funds.
Wabuinoton, March 27. J. G. Bigclow,
tho lawyer who sprang to the front with
one bound when Sergeant Mason, who attempted
to assassinate Guiteau, was sentenced
to tho Albany Penitentiary, and who
offered his services in securing his release
without money and without price, all for
humanity's sake, has brought tho maledictions
of tho country upon his head as completely
and more quickly than he would
have won tho cou ntry's praiso had he succeeded
in freeing his client. Bigclow
took special pains to lay beforo
tho country the statement, when he
took charge of Sergeant Mason's case,
that ho was working for " Bettie and the
baby," and would accept no money for his
services. Ho has failed to secure success
and sufficient fame to satisfy his oxtromo
vanity, and now ho has entored suit against
Sergeant John A. Mason. Bettie , Mason,
and Itiggs & Co., bankers of this city, for
$3,600. He filed the bill in equity yesterday.
The bill sets forth in detail the facts of
Mason's attempt to shoot Charles Guiteau
at the jail, of bis trial by courUmartial at
the Washington Barracks, and of his conviction
apd sentence to the Albany Penitentiary
for eight years. The plaintiff
states that at the request of- Mason he appeared
before the court-martial as his
oounsel and defended him, the trial
continuing for a poriod of over two
weeks. When he begtin the defense Mason
was without means, but frequently promised
to compensate the complainant for his
professional services. By reason of the
plaintiff defending him at the trial a greater
publicity was given to the facts in tho case
and the public became acquainted with the
facts of Mason s poverty and inability to
pay his counsel, ami numerous subscriptions
were, at the complainant's instance,
started all over tho country to raise funds
not only to defray the necessary expenses
attending tho taking of the requisite legal
steps in the courts of law, testing
tho legality of his conviction and imprisonment
by the judgment of tho court'
martial, and to pay counsel reasonable
compensation tor his time and services, but
also to provide for tho pressing needs of
his wife aud child. The complainant shows
to the court that tho amount of money
raised was about $12,000, which was put
into the bauds of Mrs. Mason. Of this
amount the sum of $7,000 is now on deposit
with Kiggs & Co. Pursuant to his
professional engagement, tho complainant
then goes on to statu that he prepared a petition
for a writ of huoeas corpus, and he
refers to his visit to Albany, Dulfulo and
Utica, N, Y., und his efforts beforo the'
courts in that State to secure his client's release,
and that ho expended out of his own
private means about $500, and that ho has
rendered service of tho value of $8,000.
The caso hus gone by appeal to the United
States Supremo Court, and tho attorney says
that he will secure in that tribunal the release
of his client on the ground of want
of jurisdiction in tho tribunal, under whose
sentence Mason is confined in the penitentiary.
The complainant further states that
Mrs. Mason has not only failed to pay him
for services rondered, but failed to roim.
burso him for money expended by himself.
Therefore, he prays for a judgment against
the fund deposited with Kiggs & Company,
to the credit of Bettie E. Mason, for the
sum of $3,600, and for an injunction to restrain
Mrs. Mason from drawing out any
amount that will impair this sum,

A HINT TO Ml LORING.
Reasons "Why tho American Hog
is Discriminated Against
Tho Grndnnl Invnnlon of Trlehlnre An
Export Worth Over $100,000,000 a.
Your lielns .Destroyed.
Washington, March 27. Dr. Loring, tho
head of the Department of Agriculture, is
beginning to receive some attention from
various sources becauso of the absence of
information about trichinoo in that Depart
mont, A writer in a New York medical
journal, who, by the way, is a brother of a
prominent army official, says in a recent
issuo of that journal: " JProf. Mueller, of
tho Berlin Veterinary College, wrote mo in
Dccombor, 1880, that of eighty-eight live
Amorioan hogs, part of a shipment that
had been sent to Dresden, the Inspector had
found fourteen trichinous."
Dr. Loring in his letter to the Health
Congress says: 44I do not known that Germany
or France has ever examined for this
disease in live hogs 'whore ignorance is
bliss 'tis folly to be .wise Tho foregoing,
roported by me in American papers at tho
timo, and subsequently in the report of tho
Imperial Board of Health of Germany, and
several German medical roviows, could have
been as well known to our Agricultural
Department as tho presence of
in the District of Columbia, a
fact ocular demonstration of diseased lungs
oould scarcely force upon eyes blurred by
This is forcible language, but no more
go perhaps than a remark of a gentleman
connected with the Btato
Department, who to-day laid that "if
a convention was being held to see if some
plan could be adopted to make dog's tails
grow longer, Loring would be on hand and
ready to lecture on the subject; but as to
trichinae, which affects an export wofth
over $100,000,000 a year, he knows nothing
about it. He goes leoturing about the
country and devoting his time when here
to attempts to get himself made a member
of the Cabinet, and meantime Europe is
hutting down on our hog product and may
follow with the same course on other exports.
Congress will have to take hold of
the subject at the next session and authorize
tho appointment of a commission to examine
the subject thoroughly to learn
everything that can be learned about It,
and then we may be able to grapple with
the subject-in some form. It is a necessity,
and one which cn not bo longer overlooked
or neglected as it lnu been in the pust."
A report of examinations cavried on at
one point in Germany a series of years
shows that in 1870 one hog out of every
15,800 examined was found to be
the your following, one in every 18(-387
; the next year, one in Qcry
4,874, and so on ilowu through
the years until 1880, when ono
in overy 3,857 whs found to bo affected.
'I ho most convincing statement, however,
ncs from Hamburg, shouiug that of tho
pieces of American meat examined, ono
piece in every ninety was trichinous, and
of European meat but one in every 20,4!)g.
Unpleasant facts, but facts nexarthelws,
and as such they ought to be faced and a
remedy found, either through rigid inspection
at slaughter-houses or other nivalis
which a thorough study of the subject
would doubtless suggest.

Paris, March 27, In view of the imminence
of revolutionary events it may bo
well to give briefly the state of the Revolutionary
party in Paris. There are, of course,
groups in the provindial towns, and Lyons
&nd Marseilles are necessarily full of Anarchists
and French Nihilists, But Paris
is tho central point of the revolutionary
movement, and if the seditious element obtains
the upper hand, the provinces will
follow witn a slower and more dignified
Tho revolutionary groups of the French
Capital may bo divided into Blanquists,
CollectiYists and Aparchists. The first
section holds tho doctrines of Blanqui with
all the tenacity of a creed. Tho adherents
of the dead conspirator are Jacobins, and
they accept the vote, centralization aud,
abovo all, a dictatorship.
Discussion has little U do with thoir pro
gramme. Tho loss of Blanqui has been
filled up by the tacit recognition of Eudes,
a violent personage, and an ex-General of
the Commune, as Dictator. Eudes is almost
a desperado. Very little provocation
will bring him, as tho Parisians say,
" Down into the streets." In other words,
Eudes may bo rolled upon to reaort
to the barricades with briof ceremony.
Tho Colloctivists agrco with tho
Blanquists is tho matter of vote and a die
tutorship, but they are divided upou the
question as to whether that dictatorship

Ills Word of Honor That Threo Innocent
Irishmen Woro Executed.
Paris, March 27. Mr. Parnell was interviewed
here yesterday by a correspond
ent of the Vienna Prcsso. Ho declared on
his honor that threo out of the ten men recently
executed in Ireland Trere entirely
innocent of the crimes laid to thoir charge.
He said he had no hope that the Gladstom
Government would succeed in pacifying
Ireland, events such as the Phoenix Park
murders and the recent dynamite explosion
having excited tho public mind as to prevent
any peaceful solution of tho difficulties.
Mr. Parnell declared that the Land
League was as innocent of tho London explosion
as of the Phoenix Park crime, and
ascribed both to the rash and wicked action
of men who was in reality the worst
enemies of the Irish came.
