The Grand Army in Kurope. !
It v.-ill be news to many voterans of
the civil war that the Urand Army or i
the Republic is a world-wide organ-j
ization. - ;
A Grand Army post of 20 comrade
bas lately been organized at Oldham
In Lancashire, England, said to be tho
first European pest. There are four
posts, however, in Canada, and one
each in Peru and Honolulu.
Twenty-five survivors of the civil
war meet annually in Stockholm, Swe
den, one of whom served on the Moni
tor. The fact that about 5.000 pen
sioners of the civil war live in foreign
countries has made tiiese posts possi
ble. Surely the Grand Army of the Re
public is an organization that is a fac
tor for the spread of patriotic princi
ples all over the world.
The miraculous escape from death of
a number cf the miners who were im
prisoned in the burning coal mine at
Cherry after a week of confinement in
the mine's depths, is almost like a res
urrection from the dead. To the loved
ones who had given up hope it must
come as joy that words cannot convey
the full measure of. To the public,
whose sympathy has been profoundly
enlisted with the suffering mourners
at Cherry, tho escape of some cf the
supposed victims will be a cause for
great rejoicing. It is to be hoped that
still more than those who have al
ready been found alive ay yet be
found by the searching parties and
restored to their friends and families.
Tho whole people of tho land hope
and pray that the awful calamity at
Cherry may be further lessened by the
escape from death of many more.
Custom House Sorvico a Nest of Cor
ruption. Secretary of the Treasury MacVeagh
Is reported to have said the other day
that he had found the custom house
eervice In this country a nest of cor
ruption. According to statements re
cently published, from sources that
give them a certain value, the corrup
tion of the custom house service Is not
limited to New York city, but extends
to Philadelphia, Boston, San Fran
cisco, and other large cities. "We have
eei assured that the secretary of the J
treasury Is about to institute an In
vestigation of tho service and that no
pains will be Bpared to get at the facts
and to punish the guilty ofllcials. How
much th-3 will amount to remains- to
- A former sugar sampler in the New
York custom service tell3 of the wide
scopo of fraud practiced there, and
shows how the cheating and stealing
were accomplished. Tho disclosures
are of a startling nature and they indi
cate that the government has been
losing millions on millions every year
through the bribery of the .agents of
the -sugar trust and agents of other
concerns and the dishonesty of the
officials employed in the custom house.'
The story is circumstantial and it has
all the appearance of being an honest
and truthful statement. Its author,
Henry C. Corsa, seems to have been
accustomed to habits and methods of
honest dealing, with too much con
science to permit him to accept the
bribes that the sugar agent was deter
mined should be distributed among all
officials and employes that had to do
with the weighing and sampling of
sugar. Corsa made known the facts
to his superiors, hut they were Indis
posed to take any action, alleging one
reason end another, and finally he ap
pealed to Secretary S?haw and Cortel
you, who, for reasons of their ' own,
failed to take eny action. As he ex
pected, Corsa was finally let-out of th?
sorvico, and notwithstanding all his
efforts to show the reason for his dis
charge, and the character of the men
who were over him in the service, and
the. organized and systematic dishon
esty which was practiced in the custom
house, he failed to get reinstated. 'He
was too honest to hold the position,
and his honesty was rewarded with
dismissal. ' '
Such is the truth, according to the
statement of Henry C. Corsa, an elder
ly man, whose honesty, so far as we
are Informed, has never been called In
question, and who declares that money
was put in hi3 pocXets by surar trust
agents, that the giving him of money
was repeated, and that only when he
had carried his complaints of bribery
and dishonesty to the higher officials
was he quietly let out of the service.
Certainly Secretory MacVeagh should
' not delay the most rigid investigation
j of conditions in the New York custom
house, and in tlie otner custom nouses
in th?s country.

The mayor in his message further
suggested ho believed ha had acted
within his province, as executive of the
city, and urged Immediate action by
the council, and that a special commit

Milwaukee Red had just rolled out
of. a box car, having arrived on a
night freight from Seattle, and was
thumping back doors for breakfast.
With one foot very conspicuously
bound up in rags, an 'arm In a silng
and an expression of countenance to
correspond, he had applied at several
doors without success when at the
door of a "poor little shack in a side
street a woman with a foreign accent
bade him enter.

Red. "Is me - power house workln'

But Red did not move.. Ho stood in
the middle of the floor and stared as

partly eaten pieces of dry bread, at
the famished looking children, at the
pale faced woman and at the room in

Outside, Red made, or ibe nearest

for future use and started uptown.
An inspiration had come to Mr. Red
of Milwaukee. -
He bad been In Frisco many times
before, and he knew the ropes at a
certain cheap eating place south of
Market street. Once in a moment of
weakness he had accepted a position
in the place for a few days washing
Red went boldly into a meat mar
ket and said: "I'm after de meat for

me. Dey wants ten pounds."
The butcher looked at Ited. "Jnst

he thought to himself. "He acquire a
new one every other day. I'll chance
It's being all right."
' Red hiked with the meat, but not to

Butter and milk were next on his
shopping list, and these he stole froin
back doors where the articles had been

and Red being an artist In this kind
A half hour later the kind hearted

had offered Red a share of what she
had was surprised to find on ber back

The next morning another and simi

and eagerly appropriated, the . poor
family supposing it to be the work of
some chnritably disposed person, s
in fuct it was, thTugh the tramp who
had called at their door was farthest
from their thoughts.
These early morning donations con
tinued with scarcely an interruption
for three weeks. Some mornings there
would be articles of clothing for both
children and adults as well as food.
Of the latter there was a great variety
as great a variety. In fact, as the
source from which it came.
"Wat yer rustlln' so hard fer all de

night when they met In an alley where
nome empty barrels afforded free lodg

Red's terse reply.
A which?" exclaimed Kelly, scarce

"A fambly," repeated Red.

a mock obeisance.
"Out Russian Hill way," Red told
him, ignoring the other's sarcastic
"Russian Hill?" echoed Kelly, the
eynif.lsm in his voice changing to a
note of interest.
"Yes,- Russian Hill," repeated Red.
"Wat's remarkable about those?"
"Nothln"," said Kelly, with forced
eflfort to appear unconcerned. And
then, after a moment during which
neither spoke, he asked: "Where does

Red told him the street and describ

though not appearing to notice the
strange effect the information seemed
to produce upon his pal.

Kelly did not answer at ouce. He
seemed to have lost the power of
speech and to be lost la thought,
though Red knew him too well to try
to force his ragged friend to unbosom
Finally Kelly pulled himself togeth
er and said: "Well, must be goin'.
Got a hen on. No. don't need no help.
See yer tomorrow." And then he add
ed impressively: "Red, whatever yer
do, don't git pinched. Hear me?
Keep yer eye peeled an don't git

"S' long, Kelly." said Red. "Look
out yer don't git pinched yersclf."
There was no denying it was a grim
risk Red was running, as was indicat
ed by the following news item which
appeared prominently the next day in
a city paper:
SNEAK THIEVES INFESTING HILL,
Recently sneak thieves have been plying
their trade in the Russian Hill district so
Industriously that there Is an insistent
call for more police protection. Articles
of lood and clothitis have be-n disappear
ing so rapidly in that neighborhood ot
late that It would seem a small army of
these gentry are at work there. Groceries
left at back doors in the early morning
hours are being taken, clotheslines ara be
ing denuded and small neighborhood
stores even are being entered and robbed
In broad daylight. The police are laying
for these miscreants, and a good, healthy
penitentiary term awaits all caught la the
And besides the risk which be knew
he was running Red felt the weight
of the responsibility which he had vol
untarily assumed. Looking out for
himself was an easy matter. Long ex
perience had made him a past master
In the high art of living without work
ing. But looking out for himself and
supporting "a fambly" were two differ
However, he had not long to carry
the burden. One morning it was a
wetk since Kelly's sudden disappear
anceRed was surprised to find the
poor woman awaiting him on the oft
visited back porch.
Their surprise was mutual, for the
woman at once recognized in Red the
tramp with whom she had offered to
divide her crust several weeks previ
ous. "And is it really you who have been
doing this?" she questioned, as though
doubting her senses.
"I reckon 'tain't nobody else, mum,"
"How can I thank or ever repay
you?" she said, her lips trembling.
"Don't try to do neither one, mum,"
advised Red, longing for some avenue
of escape. "How's yer gittln' erlong?
How's the kids?"
"Ob, that is what I was waiting to
see you or whoever brought the things
about." said the woman. "Wo don't
need help any more. My dear son

in her eyes "has returned, and he got
work yesterday. He's going to take
care of us now. ne was gone 6o long,
and we didn't know where he was.
Dut he says he'll never leave us again.
We're all so happy! It seems as
though you have brought us good
luck. I want you to come this evening
and see my Will. He'll be so glad to
Red looked past the woman and saw
a co.at which be easily recognized as
Kelly's hanging upon a peg just with
in the kitchen door. And his pai's
strange behavior on the night of their
last conversation was at once explain
ed. "Don't see how I can come, mum,"
he said, "but tell Kelly I mean Will
that I'm glad he's doin' so well and
to stay with his new job."
And before the happy woman could
detain him or press upon him more
words of" gratitude Red was out the
gate and gone.
But one day they saw an Item in a
newspaper about a tramp being run
over .by an automobile and lying in a
hospital with a broken leg. Something
in the reporter's reference to the man
led those whom Red had befriended to
think it was he. Going to the hos
pital, true enough there was their old
friend. As soon as he was able to be
moved they took him home with them,
and as they were now in a more pros
perous condition they kept him till he
had grown strong again. Then he in
sisted dn going out to ' resume his
tramps. They tried to persuade him
to stay with them and get work, but
he shook his head grimly and walked
