TIIE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Tuesday, Mat 81. 1889.
Dbbsbes worn by candidates for con
Brmation have thrown so elaborate and
showy lately that the bishop of Roches
ter has protested. Young girls present
themselves "rather in the guise of a bride
than in the simple toilet" that befits the
applicants for reception into the church.
The bishop mentions false pearls as par
ticularly needing avoidance by poorer
people, and satin shoes by the rich. In
France it is the samo. A confirmation
dress was recently described by a French
fashion paper as extremely "coquettish."
The bishop, in his protest, declares that
nothing would distress him more than to
have to send a candidate back for wear
ing showy or tawdy apparel, but he adds
that for example sake it may be necessa
ry for him to do so.

Here is the way one exchange puts the
economy of advertising: "The business
man who never advertises saves a great
many expenses. He saves clerks' sal
aries and needs but a smill stock to ac
commodate his customers. This makes
taxes light and insurance a small item of
expense. Only a small capital is r quired
and a small building is sufficient for pro
prletor and spiders. The money saved
by not advertising will come handy in
bearing the funeral expenses of a dead

According to the Chicago 2tew, more
good luck is in store for Capt. Fred
Harsh, of Oregon, United Stales marshal
from this district. When he leaves the
marshal's office in order to make room
for a republican, it is extremely probable
that he will be appointed chief of police
of Chicago. Should this happen, the
Freeport Bulletin thinks "there is no
doubt Wm. II. Mitchell, of that city.who
has been his first deputy for four years,
would be well provided for. Certain it
is that Capt. Marsh would need the ad
vice and assistance of a man of Mr
Mitchell's ability in an office of the vast
responsibility of chief police of Chicago
much more than while -performing the
comparatively simple duties of United
States marshal." The News says:
There was a rumor yesterday that the
next chief of police was to be United
States Marsha Fred II Marsh of Oregon,
Ogle county, 111. The rumor was more
credited than it would have been other
wise from the mayor's reported utterance
to the effect that the next chief would be
a military man and not much of a politi
cian. Marsh was commissioned captai n
on the field of Shiloh by Gov. Yates for
meritorious conduct. Bis friends are
satisfied that he is the coming man.
Marshal Marsh was waited upon by a
committee of politicians not long ago,
and. while he would not say whether he
would accept or not, he thought he
would abide by the advice of his friends.
Marshal Marsh is said to have shown
himself a man of good executive ability

ent office. lie is, moreover, a thorough

Scramble for Office.
Washington City, May 10. Senator
Farwell was in bad humor when he started
back to Chicago last night He called at the
White House yesterday and had a talk with
President Harrison. The interview was any
thing but satisfactory. Mr. Harrison re

Couldn't Gain Ills Point.
The senator tried hard to get a decisive
answer as to whether he was to be permitted
to select men to fill the offices of his own dis
trict, but the prcsiilont simply said that he
did not think that either of the Illinois sen
ators had been given the slightest provoca
tion for even supposing that he was not de
sirous of consulting their wishes in all things
that related to the state they represent
The Springfield Collectamhlp.
This gave Sormtor Farwell an opportunity
he had been looking for, as it enabled him to
bring up the Springfield collectorship, and
he told the president that he thought Senator
Cullom had been shabbily treated. Then he
recalled a bit of history in regard to an ap
pointment that President Arthur made in
Indiana while Mr. Harrison was in the sen
ate. It was a parallel cose. Without con
sulting Mr. Harrison, President Arthur re
moved an internal revenue collector in Mr.
Harrison's district and put in another man,
whereupon the Hoosier senator wrote a letter
to the president about it
Knows More Now.
The letter got into print, and Senator Far
well clipped it out and pasted it in his scrap
book for future use, although he little thought
then that it would ever come in so nicely.
Yesterday when be thrust the printed slip
before the man who nearly eight years ago
sent such a message to the then chief execu
tive, Sir. Harrison was at first taken at a
disadvantage, but after his first blush of sur
priB he burst out laughing and said: "When
you become president you will see things in
a different light than you do now ; that is
Wilcox W1U Stay.
Then he said that so far as the appoint
ment or Dr. V ileox was concerned it had
been matte in good faith and he saw no good
reason for reconsidering the action that he
had already taken. The interview concluded

withdraw the aptointment Congressman

A DISTURBING DECISION.
The Supreme Court Spreads Conxterna
tlon In the General Land Office.
Washington City, May 21. The decision
of the supreme court of the Uuited States in
the case of the United States vs. John D.
Hall, in which the court decided, in effect,
that oaths taken by Uuited States officials in
land cases before state notaries public were
of no binding force, has created consterna
tion among the officials of the general land
office. The decision was a subject of inter
ested discussion yesterday by the principal
officers of that bureau, add various opinions
were expressed as to its scope and meaning.
Thousands of Cases A fleeted.
It was pointed out that there were now
pending in the general land office thousands
of caws which would be affected by the deci
sion. In commuted homestead and pre-emption
cases, in timber culture cases and in
final homestead cases the practice of the gen
eral land office has been to allow final proof
to be taken before a clerk of a court of rec
ord or a clerk of a county court In mineral
cases proof could heretofore be made before
a state notary public. None of the officers
named are United States officers.
Serious Questions to Ieclle.
Whether the practice of the general land
office must he changed, and whether in cases
now pending, the proof already taken before
these officers is worthless in the eyes of the
law, are serious questions with Commissioner
Stockslager and his immediate advisers. It
is asserted that in nine out of every ten ' of
the mineral canes now lending in the general
land office, final proof has teen made before
state notaries public.
Commissioner Stockslager has asked As
sistant Attorney Oeneral Shields, of the de
partment of the interior, for an official opin
ion defining the scope and and actual mean
ing of the Hall decision.
Something About Paraguay.
Washington City, May 21. United
States Consul Hill, at Asnucion, Paraguay,
in an elaborate and interesting report on
that country says the people are apathetic,
happy and contented, and without aspira
tions. The women do the work and the men
the smoking, gambling and cock fighting.
Still, he says, there is considerable trade
and no reason why some of it should not go
to this country. As it is the people are as
indifferent to us as we are to them, and know
but one financial center and that is London.
New York is only an idle name and is
scarcely ever heard. The trouble is, he says,
that our merchants make no effort to get
trade there. He bos only seeu one American
commercial traveler there during his stay,
and that one bad no trouble in getting or
ders. Persistent Place Hunters.
Washington City, May 21. .Much con
sternation prevails among the messengers,
watchmen, laborers and other departmental
employes not under the protection of the
civil service law. The demands by the place
hunters are so persistent that the heads of
departments have been forced to call upon
their respective appointment clerks for lists
of all employes not in the classified service.
The call for such lists was made last week,
and many of those who have influence with
the administration nave temporarily
abandoned the White House and spend their
time in the department striving either to
keep friends in offioe or to capture a messen
ger's or a laborer's place for a hungry con

papers of this city that has not been working
almost constantly in the interests of Roman
Ism during the several months of the late
Proteetant-Jesuit controversy. This conspir
acy of the press of Boston to cheat the public
of news and facts to which it is entitled is a
reproach our civilization, and deserves the
derision and scorn of all honest men."
Wnr to the Knife Declared.
The speaker went on to claim that a Jesuit
ical inquisitor stands at the elbow of the
editor metaphorically or really. The press
was gagged. "But," said the professor in
closing, "the sword has been drawn, the
scabbard has been fl'ing to the winds, the
bridges have been torn down, and this con
troversy cannot come to an end until the
hand of this foreign power no longer shall be
felt pressing with its withering touch upon 1
Journalism and all the free institutions of
this country, which are as dear as life itself
to every true American citizen."

plained particularly of saloons aud Sunday

power," and that power being in negro hands,
tbey should be prepared to use it wisely. Mr.
Allen was followed by Mr. Williams, colored,
