THK BOOK TSILOTD ARQTTB, TUESDAY APBIL 9, IB89,
THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Tuesday. April 9. 1889.
To arrive at an intelligent understand
ing of the remits of last Tuesday's elec
tion, a recount seems an absolute neces
slty. Ia tome wards it is claimed tbat
according to tbe returns made by the
judges, mora votes were recorded for cer
tain candidates than the full rote of tbe
ward showed. And in some instances
there was an inexplicable shortage tbat
the people would like to know something
about. The only way to arrive at a sat
isfactory conclusion is to have a recount,
Cot. WRioifT. the famous statistician,
finds, io bis study of tbe Massachusetts
census of 1885, that native American
women resident of that state have fewer
children than foreign-born women. This
tells against the natives, of course. But
when tbe inquiry is extended a little fur
ther tbe case assumes a different phase.
Col. Wright has discovered, that al
though there are fewer children born to
American women than to the other wo
men, they live longer and are healthier
and st longer. Tbe balance, after all, is
found to be in favor of the offspring of
the native stock.
Mr. J. 8. Clahkson, first assistant
postmaster general, is determined to have
the country understand that honors are
thrust upon bim and upon bis family
against bis will, and in the face of his
utmost resistance. He laid on his back
and kicked viciously when bis office came
rolling toward Lim, but it was in vain
and he bad to take it. Now be has been
forced again, according to a Washington
correspondent of the Courier-Journal.
This time, against Clarkson'a most
sincere protests and positive objec
tions, bis own son was taken up and
forced upon bim as bis chief clerk by
Mr. Wannamaker. Clarkson had stated
that no member of bis family should be
quartered on the poslofflce department,
but bow can be be blamed for it when
he is tied and forcibly ravished in this
manner? It is not intimated that Clark
son thinks of resigning because this
very objectionable son of his bat been
forced upon bim ss a chief clerk. He
will probably condone tbe offense, gulp
down bis disappointment, and go on
with bis work. It is not believed even
this arbitrary interference in tbe affairs
of his office will cause an estrangement
between the father and son. Clarkson
bow bit meeknens and patriotism by
submitting patiently to being pounded
around tbia way.

Carnegie Says It Is Threatened by Hallway
HaBRISbcbq, Pa., April tf. Andrew Car
negie last night addressed a large audience,
including about 100 niemlwrs of tbe house of
representatives and a large number of sena
tors, in the hall of the house, on "The Indus
tries of Pennsylvania." He said that while
the past was secure and the present satisfac
tory, there wore certain influences which
threatened tbe future of the state. The
principal causes of the decline in tbe manu
facture of pig-iron were excessive freight
rates, the increasing cost of anthra
cite coal, and the combinations which
deprive the state of tbe advantages of
competition with tbe south. He believed
that in the eastern district of the state a re
duction of one third in present freight rates
would still leave the railroads a fair profit
Upon some such reduction depended the pos
sibility of taking a hopeful view of maintain

How the Natives Worried Stanley.
London, April 4. The letter received a
few days age by the Royal Geographical so
ciety from Henry M. Stanley was read at a
meeting of tbe society last evening. The ex
plorer substantially repeats what he wrote
to his friend n Edinburgh, but supplies val
uable geographical information in addition.
Recounting 'he difficulties attending his
march he says the natives on sev
eral occasions dug ditches in which
they placed sharp stakes covered
with leaves, t impede his progress.
Many of his men suffered from sore feet for
days after treading upon the up-turned
points, and some of them were permanently
disabled. Ths natives also, for purposes of
extorting sup plies of food, etc., pretended
that they wera suffering from famine. The
friendly nath es were ohary of giving in
formation to i ho Stanley party, but those
who were ma. le prisoners told all they knew.
Stanley belie es that the lake he discovered
in 1S70 lielongfi to the Congo chain and is trib
utary to that river.

New York, April 9. The banquet at Del

and his party of American base ball play

a brilliant success. One of the features of
th occasion was a witty speech by Mark
Twain. I. H. Twitchell, a graduate of Yale,
said a prayer, and the 250 guests then sat
down to the nine innings or courses of

In the course of his remarks Mark Twain
Though not a native, as intimated by the
chairman, I have visited a great many years
ago the Sandwich Islands that peaceful land,
that beautiful land, that far off home of pro
found repose, and soft indulgence and dreamy
solitude, where life is one long, slumberless
Sabbath, the climate one longlelicious sum
mer day. and where the koojI that die ex
perience no change, for they but fall asleep in
one heaven and wake up in another. And
these boys have played base ball the'-e! base
ball which is the very symbol, the out
ward and visible expression of the drive
and push, and rush and . struggle of
the raging, tearing, booming nineteenth
century. One can not realize it.
The place and the fact are so incongruous.
It's like interrupting a funeral with a circus.
Why, there's no legitimate point of contact,
no I'OssiMe kinship between base ball and the
Sandwich Islands; base ball is all fact, the
islands all sentiment. In base ball you've got
to do everything just right or you don't get
there; in the islands you've got to do every
thing just wrong or you can not stay there.
You do it wrong to get it right, for if you do
it right you get it w rong; there isn't anr way
to get it right but to do it wrong, and the
w-ronger you do it the lighter it is. The na
tives illustrate this every day. They never
mount a boss from the larboard side,
they always mount him from the starboard;
on the other hand, they never milk a cow on
the starboard side, they always milk her on
the larboard; it's why you see so many short
people there they've got their beads kicked
off. When they meet on the road they don't
turn out to the right; they turn out to the left.
And so, from always doing everything wronir
end first that way, it makes them left-handed
lett-banded and cross-eyed; they are all so.
When a child is born the mother goes right
along with her ordinary work without losing

In regard to tbe formation of the recrular
Chicago ball team for the championship sea
son Manager Spalding said yesterday: -Noth-
ing detiuite has been done as yet, but all the
players will lie held in reserve." Mr. Spald
ing was asked explicitly regarding the en
gagement of Duly, Pettit and Sullivan, who
played with the Chicngos on their tour
around the world. He said: -No nego
tiations have lieen completed as yet, nor has
the matter been seriously thought of." Tbe
players themselves said they were unable to
answer the direct question as to whether they
would play wub the team this season or not.
It was a matter that would be arranged later
on. They, of course, would consult with the
manager of the Chicago team before taking
auy definite action or going with any rival
organization. The players are working very

tained paralytic strokes in both limbs is un
true. In all probability he will be in good

en route to the United States. While play
ing iu France he slip;ied in making first
base in one of the games, striking his knee
on the gravel and tearing the flesh btdly.
The wound, which, of course, was filled with
gravel and sand, was attended to by a sur
geon, cleaned, stitched, and the patient put
to iwd with the injunction that he must re
main quiet a week. He got up liefore the
time and the wound gave evidence of further
trouble, Iwing highly irritated. Tbe sur
geon was called in again, the wound re
opened, and it was found that some particles
of gravel and sand had been left iu the flesh.
These were carefully cleaned out, the wound
washed and closed, and Williamson put to
bed again, and told to remain two weeks, the
surgron further assuring him that be would
soon be "as good as new."

WATERTOWN FAINTS HERSELF RED.
Great Rejoicing Over a Decision of the
United States Supreme Court How the
Cltv Managed to Keep Its Bondholders
at Bay I'ntil the fctntute of limitations
Knocked Them Out of Court History of
Washington City, April 9. The supreme
court of the United States yesterday rendered
an opinion in the cases of Henry, Amy, and
Oustavus L. Hopnensted, Edwin F. Knowl
ton, and the executors of William S. Pierson,
deceased, all plaintiffs in error, vs. the City
of Wati-rtown, in error to the circuit court
of the United States for the western district
of Wisconsin. These are all suits brought to
recover the value of Imuds iued by the city
of Watertown. The city's charter provides
that all suits against the tiity must be by
service of prut. on the mayor, and the law
of Wisconsin declares that a suit shall not be
considered to have commenced until process
has been served. The plaintiff in these cases
served pr.x-ess on various ciiy officers, but
were unable to serve process, on the mayor,
for th reason that that officer to elude serv
ice resigned office as sn as sworn in.
In 1S.SH the city voluntarily entered an ap
pearance in the suits brought against it, al
leging that the actions were barred by the
statute of limitations. The plaintiffs de
murred t this plea on the grounds tbat serv
ice had leon made or attempted; that a suit
had therefore been begun within the time
prescribed by the statute of limitations, and
that a conspiracy to defraud them existed on
the part of the city officers. The circuit
court gave judgment for the city, however,
stating that under the Wisconsin laws suits
could not be held to have begun until actual
service of process, and that this not having
lieen done within the prescribed time the
suits were burred.
This Court, in the opinion of Justice Brad
ley, affirms these judgmeuK The court
holds that it must follow the opinions of
the state courts in this matter, and that it
can grant no relief unless the constitution of
the United States is violated, which is not
allegod. The courts t says, have no power
in such cases. The states have a right to en
act laws i f the character involved in these
cases, and an appeal must 1 to the legisla
ture and not to the courts. The question of
conspiracy isdisosed of with the statement
that a charge of fraud can not lie against a
HISTORY OF THE CASE.
Bow the Ieht Was Incurred and the Pay
Watkrtowx, Wis., April 0. Word was
received yesterday that the supreme court of
the United Slates had affirmed the decision
of the Wisconsin courts that the.lionds out
standing against this city are outlawed and
can not be collected. There was great re
joicing last night over the decision. Tbe
streets were lightM with bonfires, fire bells
were ringing, fish horns blowing, music
playing and the citizens parading, all wild
with excitement over what is regarded as the
virtual settlement of the hiird-fought bond
case, which bas vexed the city for over
twenty years. Upon every question brought
before the court by the iteffeuse the statute
of limitatiw- conspiracy to defraud, and
Other points the city has won.
In tbe year 1S55 the city of Water-town
voted $).0u0 in bonds as aid to the Milwau
kee and Watertown railroad. In 1356 tbat
city voted $-00,000 of bonds in aid of the
Watertowp and Madison railroad aud $'J00.
000 of bonds in aid of the Chicago, St Paul
and Fond du Lac railway, now a part of
the Northwestern railrond. When tbe Chi
cago, St Paul & Fond du Lc was sold out
and the Northwestern organized the latter
company made provision in tho shape of a
trust rutul in stock lor taking up the bonds
voted iu aid of that company, and
those are nearly all thus taken un.
In several ways somewhere between $50,000
and $100,000 of theso other londs have
been taken up, and there is now outstand
ing of tbe debt that isn't coiit rolled by the
city of AVatertown lietwecn $500,000 and
$7(K),0it0 Immediately after tho failure of
the railroad companies in 1S"7 and 1858 the
city of AVatertown defaulted arid has never
since pretcnted to pay even the interest on
the bonds. .liKljments began to l obtained
against the city from lr5U to WpJ, and many
of the coupons were put iu judgment.
AA'hen tho bonds were issued tho city could
be sued by serving process either upon the
mayor or clerk of the city, and the law re
mained so until about IsTO, when it was
changed so as to require uervieo to lie maiie
both on tho mayor ami the clerk.
By sulcquent enactments of the legislature,
however, the municipal affairs of Watertown
could all be carried on without a mayor or
common council, everything except the levy
ing of taxes being done by the lioard of street
commissioners, and the tnxes for ordinary
purposes being levied by chapter of 1871.
It is thus coiiifietent for tho city to avoid be
ing sued, and when sued and judgment is re
covered it is competent for all the affairs of
the city to be conducted, at the same time
there being in existence no othvrs w ho can
levy a tax to pay a judgment.
Home Knle for Scotland.
London, April 9. In the house of com
mons last evening Roliertson, Q. C, lord ad
vocate of Scolland.introdui-ed a Scotch local
government bill. The measure creates county
councils to lie elected by householders.
Burghs having less than 7,0i( inhabitants are
to lw merged into counties, under one gov
ernment, but towns tif population greater
than 7,000 are to beself govermil. The powers
of tho county councils include the right to
pass private bills, a power hitherto vested
in parliament alone. This is palpably a stop
toward borne rule.

the woman as sufficient to drive her crary,
and claimed it mattered not whether she was
