'I lie Woi'kiiigmcn'tf Friend.
Gov. Cleveland has shown by his course
beforo and since he was Governor that he ia
a true friend of tlm workingmen, and they
will support him for President. We call to
mind at this time a few instances In which
ho has demonstrated that his sympathies
are enlisted in the work of true reform in
behalf of the workingmen of his state. The
workingmen of New York had asked for
tho establishment of a Bureau of Labor
Statistics. It had been created, with the
prompt approval of the Governor, and he
had appointed a commissioner entirely ac
ceptable to the Labor Organizations of the
State. The demand for the prohibition of
cigarmaking iu tenement houses camo from
the workingmen. The Governor signed the
bill for that purpose last year. The act
was declared invalid by the court of ap
peals, and another was passed which was
intended to obviate the fatal objections
raised, and this was signed without hesit
ation. The workingmen made a loud de
mand for the abolition of contract labor in
the prisons and that proposition was favor
ed by the Governor in his messago and in
his signature of the Comstock bill, and his
criticism upon the measure for an investi
gating commission. In his general courso
Gov. Cleveland has shown no special regard
for this or that seperate interest, but has
kept in view the general well-being in which
all have a share; but if there is any class to
whose demans he has exhibited a friendly
leaning, it is the working class.
Facts About Cleveland's Ve
toes. Philadelphia Times: The grounds upon
which it is sought to create prejudice
Bgainst Governor Cleveland are his vetoes
of the five-cent -Lire bill, the mechanics'
lien bill and the bill regulating the hours
of labor of drifers and conductors of horse
The bill fixing the fire on the elevated
railways at five cents abrogated a right
vested in the cotporation hy a previous Leg
islature. In that act the regulation of farts
was distinctly surrendered by the State un
til the net earnings should reach a given
sum. In spite of the agreement in the con
tract the Legislature of 18$: passed a bill
making a uniform rate of fare of five cents.
The Governor vetoed it on the ground that
tho Legislature could not abrogato a vested
ritjlir. There was not the slightest doubt
that the courts of the State would have tak
en the same view.
That the proposed reductions wete only
ot the slightest interest to workingmen is
shown by the fact that the rate had long
been five cents from half-past four to half
past eight a. in., and from half-past four to
half-past seven p. m. The reduction of
f.irts at other hours in the day was a mani
fest advantage to bankers, broker?, business
men and amusement seekers, but not of
the smallest interest to laboring men and
mechanics, who already had the privileges
the vetoed bill confeircd. 0 position to the
veto was short-lived, and a feeling of sat
isfaction followed that one man had been
found who had the pluck and the intelli
gence to oppose such futile legislation even
at the risk of incurring popular disapproval.
The Governor also interposed his veto to
the mechanic's lien bill. The original in
tention of this bill was to give mechanics
power to secure their wages by the means
of liens. But it was so amended that its
purpose was either obscured or lost. It
gave parties four months after performance
of work or furnishing of material to file a
lien, a peiiod ridculously prolonged. It
also allowed the same costs as in fore
closures, which, in the case of small bills,
would have been onerous as to eat them up
entirely. But, worst of all, it repealed ex
isting mechanics' lien laws, which were far
more favorable to the working people than
the new law. It was found to be a scheme
to make increased lawyers' Liil and to di
minish tho protection afforded the me
chanic. The Governor very properly ac
cepted the lesser evil and vetoed the de
The bill making twelve hours a day's
work for conductors and drivers on street
cars did not, in any way, prohibit the
making of a contract requiring any number
of hours' work, and if it had tho Governor
very aptly objected that it was an inter
ference with tho rights of tho employes as
well as employers. It was plain that if tho
car drivers and conductors worked fewer
hours they would receive less pay, and the
bill neither did nor could prevent that.
Tho Governor concluded his objections by
saying, "I cannot think this bill is in the
interest of the workingmen.''
One charge remains against Governor
Cleveland's vetoes. The last Legislature
made a small appropriation for a charitable
institution known as the Westchester Cath
olic Protectory . Tho Governor struck it
out, and the chargo ha3 been made that ho
was hostile to theJCatholic Church as such.
Mr. Henry L. Hoguef, President of tho
Protectory, says on this question :
"We never doubted tho sincerity of the
motivo which induced Governor Cleveland
to withhold his signature to tho appropria
tion to the protectory. We thought then
and think now that ho was not actuated by
any feeling of bigotry or of hostility to
Catholics or the Catholic institutions. On
the contrary, Governor Cleveland is liberal
in the extreme, and we are of tho firm
belief that he was led to withholding hia
approval of tho appropriation solelyliy a
sense of public duty as he viewed it."
Upon these facts aro based all the charg
es made against Grover Cleveland by which
it is sought torais objection to him among
the laboring men and religious elements.

Quarter to Twelve.
A somewhat romantic story, in
which a well-known young lady who
resides in tho Eleventh Ward, and
whoso first name is Heruiic, is tho he
roine, and a young man named John
is tho hero, camo to the ears of thy
Pittsburg Lcwkr reporter. The lady
referred to is now married, but at tho
timo tho story opens, on last New
Year's evo, sho was a blooming maiden
whoso afi'eetions up till 11 o'clock of
tho night in question were unpledged
to any person. Tho story goes, uud
its authenticity is guaranteed by subse
quent occurrences, that the young lady
had mado a remark shortly beforo tho
Christmas holidays that any young
man of her acquaintance who at a
quarter to 12 o clock on tho night of
December 31 would make a proposal of
marriage to her, sho would accept.
When sho mado tho remark in tho
hearing of 0110 or two of her acquaint
ances sho was under tho impression
that shj never would havo to ruako
good hor promiso, as sho had not tho
faintest idea that any person would bo
visiting her houso at that time of
night. Tho remark mado by Miss
llermio came to the ears of two or three
young men from different sources.
They did not acquaint each other with
their intentions, but they must havo all
been of tho same miud, a3 ":3o o'clock
on tho evening iu question found threo
of tho maiden's admirers in the parlor
of her home. During tho casual con
versation they had among themselves,
they found they were all thoro for tho
samo purpose, namely, that of remain
ing till 11:15 o'clock, and then propos
ing to their young hostess. Sho knew
of this, and was in a dilemma as to
how to act, but a plan occurred to her,
and sho determined to stato it to tho
young men; so sho aroso in thoir
midst, and with a sweet smilo all tho
while, said: "Gentlemen, I am awaro
of tho object of your visit here, but as
I can't accept all of your oilers of mar
riage, tho best way you cau do is to
match pennies, and tho winning ono is
to romaiu hero till the timo comes for
making tho proposal, which I said I
would accept." This plan was carried
out, and John was tho lucky one, and
at a quarter of an hour beforo tho big
bell rung out tho old and iu tho new
year ho proposed, was accepted, and
just a little over two weeks ago John
and llermio were married, tho two
losers of tho penny matching game
acting as tho best men.
A Live Fly Catcher.
"Of what earthly use is a toad?" a
naturalist was asked.
"It is a very useful animal about tho
house. There isn't a bettor fly catcher.
1 trained a toad once and kept it in my
room. Its place was on tho window
bench, and my diversion was to seo it
catch lies. If riflemen could aim as it
does with its tongue, they would bo iu
viucible. Its aim is as unerring as its
glance. Its touguo is made so that it
can shoot it out nearly two inches. It
is so sharp that it spears a fly as upon
tho point of a needle, and it is dono as
quicK as a man can wink. It requires
very great attention to seo tho opera
tion." "I low do they live in tho winter?"
"Toads crawl into a crack in tho
earth or bury themselves iu tho mud.
There aro numerous stories about tho
timo they can live without food or air.
Mr. Buokland's experiments showed
that they could live two years, so that
wo must conclude that the legend of
tho discovery in tho bowels of the earth
of toads that possibly lived beforo Noah
aro misleading. Thoy certainly get a
modicum of air in their hiding places.
Thoro is no trustworthy account of a
live geological toad. Toads aro found
in stones, but they aro merely housed
up iu a solid coat of sun-baked clay,
which on tho exterior seems as hard as
a stone, but which, in all probability,
contains a fissure invisible to tho naked
eye, through which it gets air ami
"Tho toad is sometimes found con
cealed iu a knot of a tree, where it has
been encased in bark; but here, too, it
U not wholly locked up from air. It
has tho power of contracting its body,
and swelling it to twieo its natural size.
It certainly cau live iu a greater stato
of torpidity than almost any other ani

"Yes; curiously enough, it haa a cry
that sounds like an infant screaming

A drive or a stroll through the sub-nrii-i

mock has come into uso ns an adjunct
of outdoor comfort. There is scarcely
a dooryanl or a piazza of any preten

swinging couches, ltightly placed and
hung, tho hammock affords tho very
luxury of repose, and our peoplo have
..-.no well to borrow it from their sum
mer neighbors, whoso climato and
Umipc-rumoiit are so couducivo to tho
cultivation of a "genius for repose."
But rightly hung does not mean stis
jiendcd in a cramped situation, with
both ends equally elevated. This is
tho way to put up a swing, but not a
hammock, unless it bo intended simply
to sit in. For reclining purposes tho
head should bo higher than tho feet.
A good rule is to fasten tho hook for the
head of tho hammock six feet, three
inches from tho ground or lloor, and
the lower cud threo feet, threo inches.
The distance between tho two should
bo eighteen or twenty foot, though fif
teen feet will answer. Tho longer
rope should be on tho bottom end, as
this makes swinging much easier and
For outdoor uso, when two trees are
not available, tho hook for tho head
may bo fastened to tho tree or the rope
tied to it, and a post set in tho grouud
at tho required distance at the lower
end. In this manner, shade can bo
secured though tho lounger bo tho
possessor of but a single tree. Tho
asfenings and tho ropo should bo
strong and secure beyond a peradven
ture; and if tho hammock is to bo used
by young children, it should bo hung
very near to tho ground, that tho in
evitable tumbles and spillings may bo
as harmless ns possible. Tho closely
woven hammocks aro best, as they
do not catch the buttons nor wear out
For an enjoyable and healthful siesta,
or for summer reading and day dream
ing, this "couch in tho air" is prefera
ble to all others. For tho purposes of
flirtation or courtship if tho latter
old-fashioned word bo applicable to tho
modern fashion of wooing wo havo
not observed that any hints or direc
tions are necessary. Tho hammock
lends itself to tho graces and natural
wiles of woman, aud adapts itself to a
young man's fancies with a facility that
suggests its origin in tho land of lan
guors aud of love. Its utilitarian ends
are many, but it is nevertheless essen
tially a thing of beauty aud luxury.

else. In Spain they mako quite a for
mal matter of asking for a light. Tho
gentleman who wishes tho accommoda
tion approaches the smoker, romoves
his hat, and says: 'Will you favor mo
with a light from your cigar?' or words
to that effect. The gentleman address
ed also removes his hat, then carefully
brushes the ashes from his cigar and
presents it with a bow. The other man
accepts it with tin equally elaborato
obeisance, lights, returns the weed, aud
both bow again, wish ouch other good
day and depart. It it is often done so
here, of course, but generally tho
height of politeness is for tho man who
is asked for a light to strike a match
on his boot or somo other convenient
part of his clothing and oiler it to tho
other with the brimstone burning away
furiously. If such a thing should be
done in Spain it would bo almost cer
tain to re?ult iu a duel." Huston Globe.
