President Cleveland hat had to
. tend la soother veto. Ha could not see
why a. widow whose husband died in
1888 of typhoid fever, could be entitled
to receive a pension.
8oxe republican papers presa me to
neer because of the announcement -that
-President Cleveland will resume the prac
tice of law after March 4th. This causes
the Burlington Oautte to say that their
thoughtless Jocularity over this fact Is
evidence of hew very little they know
about the principles and institutions of
our government. The citizen becomes
president and afur four years he
asain becomes citizen. If he is a lawyer,
he will probably resume his profession,
or if he wants to, he may, like Hayes,
tu iniuK ynmniy. air. jev
land has dons nothing while president,
to lower his standing in his profession .
He will reenter it without bringing any
dirgrace upon it. There is nothing dis
honorable In labor, or in a man's earning
a living for his family even if be has once
been -president. It Is a wholesome ex
ample and an act that will shed new lus
ter upon Mr. Cleveland, and testify to the
world the beauty, strength and simplicity
of our form of government.
Thus who believe that the late elec
tion has settled the "tariff i?ue" will
soon have good reason to acknowledge
themselves mistaken. - Unquestionably
there baa never been a time in the history
of the United States when so large a body
of earnest and intelligent men have be
come united upon the proposition that
the government shall no longer tax the
few for the benefit of the many.
The issue cannot be evaded or post
poned; the tight will be continued both
in season and out of season until this
odious system of robbery and plunder
miscalled protection Is completely
"The American Tariff Reform League"
is making active preparations for a con
vention of tariff reformers that is to be
held in Chicago on the 19ih, 20th and
91st of February, 189. They eipect to
have present the ablest advocates of tariff
rerorna in tbe country and to bring to
gether the largest assemblage of anti
protectionists ever convened in Amer
ica. At this convention a plan
for an educational campaign, that
shall be thorough, systematic and can,
tinuous, will be adopted. While the
work of the league is national in extent,
it is proposed to devote especial attention
to the northwest, as it is believed that
the decisive battle for tariff reform will
occur in the great food producing states
of the west. Tbe absurdity of our far
mers continuing to pay tribute to eastern
capitalists without receiving any return
is becoming more and more manifest.
Arrangements have been made with
the leading railroads by which those who
attend the convention may return home
for one-third regular fare, by securing
certificate of the fact that they have pur
chased full fare ticket to tbe convention
from their local ticket agent, not more
than three days before the convention
convenes, this certificate to be presented
on porchase of return ticket.
Any of our readers desiring to attend
will confer a favor on tbe league by send
ing their address to

A Mother"' writes, giving an interesting
case of inherited peculinrlty, which, although
it does not come precisely within the cate
gory of transmission of an artificial injury, is
yet worth recording, if only to prove how
trivial marks of parent may reappear in the
offspring. Iler first child, a boy, at present
aged 21 months, was seen, shortly after birth,
to poste two itmall holes, each about the size
of a pin's head, tn "tbe upper part of each of
bis cars. " The mother attention was drawn
to the peculiarity by her husband, who re
marked the fact (of which till then she was
completely ignorant;, that he poEseased the
same marks, situated In precisely the aame
position, as they occupied in his tion. Further
inquiry amongst the relatives showed that
thechtld's grandfather (on the paternal side)
possessed the aame peculiarity of ears. No
information could be obtained respecting tbe
original cause of the peculiarity. It ts
striking to find such markings, not only so
faithfully propagated, but descending strictly
on tho male side for three generations. There
is no trace of the marks in the second child
a girl of tbe family. Herald of Health.
Lifting th Bat.
fting tho hat is a custom that had a mili
tary origin, it is said. In olden times soldiers
wore helmets to protect their heads from as
saults by tbe sword or battle ax and to re
move this head covering was to show con
fidence in the man to whom tbe salute was
extended. No gentleman was expected to
split a man's head open after this mark of
trustfulness, though be was sometimes treach
erous enough to do so. To lift the hat grace
fully ia considerable of an acquirement, re
quiring long practice. There is a man in
New York who has become such an aWt t
it that be can lift half a dozen hats at a time,
if be can sneak into a hallway while the folks
are at dinner. Texas Sifting.

Indianapolis, Feb. 6. The most noted
arrival in this city yesterday waa CoL Mosby,
the ex-confederate guerrilla chieftain, who

INTERESTING POLITICAL QUESTION.
The New Hainpltire Legislature Likely
to Have to Decide It.
Manchester, N. H., Feb. 6. The critical
illness of the Hon. D. H. GoodeU, late Repub
lican caudidate for governor, occasions fears
of a possible political
computation in the
event of bis death.
There waa no choice
by the people in the
recent election, and
the constitution pro-
J5 case, the senate and
house shall, by a
joint vote, elect one
the two persons
who had the highest
numlier of votes.
Bivm a. ooodkll. Tbe question arises
whether, should Mr. GoodeU die before the
legislature meets in June, Mr. Amsden, the
Democratic candidate, would be the only pos
sible choice, or whether Mr. Corey, the Pro
hibition candidate, would be eligible. It is
suggested that, in order to keep the governor
ship in the Republican party, the legislature,
which would have no official knowledge of
Air. GoodeU s death, might elect him gov
ernor, whereupon, under the constitution, the
president of the senate, who is a Republican,
would succeed to the gubernatorial cbair.

tions: "First Did you not pay a certain amount
of money to make up a deficiency in na
tional dues so that a larger delegation
could lie sent to the New York convention!
Second Did you not refuse to confirm the
election of certain women elected constitu
tionally by the districts to represent them at

for four years, by unchristian charges (now
proven false), and by newspaper reports seek
to bring about secession in W. C. T. U. ranks.
and to lead such a secession movement, and
did you not pay the bills accruing in this
work? Fourth "Have you not been in re
ceipt of pay from the Republican party for

above, Mrs. Hobart says proof in the shape of
records, etc., will be forthcoming.

New York, Feb. & A large crowd of
strikers and their sympathizers attacked a
car of tlte Forty-second street line at tbe
boulevard and Sixty-second street about 1
o'clock yesterday afternoon. There are few
buildings in the neighborhood and no police
men were in sight to aid the solitary officer
on the car, Thomas K. Schneider. There was
but one passenger an old lady. She got out
when the car stopped and escaped unhurt.
In a moment the windows of the car were
shattered, and a shower of stones was falling
upon the officer, driver and conductor.
Schneider used bis club freely, but could
make no headway against the mob. The
driver and conductor defended themselves as
best they could. A rioter got behind Schnei
der and smashed his helmet with a brick.
At the same time another hurled
a stone, which struck the officer full in ths
mouth, knocking out several teeth. Schneider
then took out his revolver and fired twice over
the beads of tbe mob. A few of tbe riotert
ran away when the firing began, but most of
them stood firm, and quickly made another
rush for the car. As they advanced, Schneider
aimed at the leaders, and fired three times in
quick succession. The driver and conductor
also fired. The mob wavered, and then fled
in all directions. One wounded man was left
on the spot and two less seriously injured
were helped away by their friends. Schneider
stood over tbe prostrate and unconscious man
until a detachment of reserves came up.
It was found that the wounded man was
James McGowan, aged &", w ho had been a
hostler at the Belt line stables, and was out
on strike. He was taken to Roosevelt hospital,
where be died a few moments later. The bul
let which killed him had struck his arm and
ranged upward iuto the braiu.
Schneider went to headquarters and gave
himself up. Superintendent Murray sent an
officer with him to the Essex Market police
court, wnere he was arraigned before Justice
Patterson. He stated that he had fired sev
eral shots in self-defense, but could not tell
whether McGowan had been struck by one oi
his bullets or not. Louis Bretuian, a brother
of Charities Commissioner Brennan, an eye
witness of tho fight, deseTiled the affair as
above, and said he was positive that McGow
an was shot by the conductor, w o fired in
self-defense. Several other witnesses testified
that it was not Schneider's bullet that struck
McGowan. Justice Patterson discharged
Schneider, and issued an order for the arrest
of the conductor. Schneider is 2S years old,
has been a policeman two years, and has an
The attack on the car was carefully planned.
Mr. Dooliltle, who lives in a house overlook
ing tho scene, and witnessed the whole affair,
says he saw men coining from all directions
as if by preorrangement. Tliey concentrated,
and one man took" the lead, directing their
movements. They drew two trucks over the
track just in time to stop the car, and at a
signal from the leader every man drew a
brick or stone from under his coat and bom
barded the car. The crowd then made a rush,
and would have made short work of the de
fenders of the car but for the firing.
Brooklyn, Feb. 6. Deacon Richardson

tion of miners and mine operators in annual
session here yesterday, was attended by dele
gates from Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Penn

factory scale of wages for the coining year.
The In. liana section of the miners held a
meeting before entering the convention and
practically determined that the scale should
not be lowered. Tbe first question that arose
in the convention showed that the body was
not free from factions, owing to the presence
of memliers of the antagonistic organizations
the Knights of Labor and the Minors' Fed
eration. The former was led by W. B. Ray,
and tho laUor W. T. Lewis. The question of
wages is still unsettled. The ojrat on are now
paying 75 cents a ton and waut to reduce the
price to 74 cents, while the minors want an
increase, but will compromise on present
The convention was in session until 11
o'clock last night discussing the question of
admitting the Knights of Labor. The Feder
ation members opposed their admission at
knights, while a broader policy was urged,
on the ground that their identity with the or
ganization had no weight in the matter. Th
question is still open.

THE LATEST FROM HAYTI.
LeaHtlnie Tries to Capture Ilipuolyte'a
StroiiKhold. but Fails.
New York, Feb. 6. The British steamer
Harold, which arrived Tuesday morning
from Port DePaix, from northern Hayti,
brought some startUng news of the latest
Haytian efforts to capture Hippolyte's
stronghold, Gonaives. Johannes Haustedt,
Hippolyte's agent in New York, is the au
thority for the statement that Gonaives has
Ijeen bombarded by President Legitime's
man-of-war without damage, and that sev
eral hundred of Legitimes soldiers have
been taken prisoners and thirteen general?
shot dead as traitors and conspirators. These
facts Mr. Haustedt received by mail from
On the afternoon of Jan.' 20, according to
the report, the steamer Dessalines, accompa
nied by tbe Toussaint L'Overiure, of Legi
time's navy, came to anchor off Gonaives,
and demanded the immediate surrender of the
town under penalty of bombardment. A
portion of Hippolyte's army, number 2,000
men, was in possession of Gonaives, while
within eighteen miles the main body of his
army was eucamped. No reply was made to
the demand to surrender the town, and the
man-of-war oiened fire. Its marksmanship
was poor and its guus too small to damage
the town, and after, several hours
the bombardment was abandoned and
a force was sent on shore in small boats to
capture the town by assault. Legitime's men
were overpowered, aud, while a number were
kiUed and wounded, the remainder, several
hundred, were taken prisoners. No mercy
was shown to the generals, of whom, it is
said, there were thirteen in aU. - They w ere
Mr. Haustedt said tbat the names of tbe
generals who were shot were not mentioned
in his letter. Mr. Kunhardt, of the firm of
Kunbardt & Co., admitted that he had beard
that Gonaives had town unsuccessfully bom
barded by Legitime' forces, but had beard
no particulars -
