ONE ON THE POLICEMAN.

"Cheese it, cully, de cop.
If a iwson had lteeu near enough to a
crowd of about a dozvn street urchins at
a dark corner near One Hundred and
Sixty-fifth street and Third avenue, in
the annexed district, the other night, he
would have heard the alove sentence ut
tered in a stage whisper, and he would
have seen the dozen kids," as the police
men call them, scramlileout of sight and
secrete themselves in doorways or behind
any convenient object that presents it
self, so that in less time than it takes to
tell it not one of the urchins was in sight.
They scrambled to their retreat like a
lot of rats. Just as the last one disa
peared the blue coat and brass buttons
of a big lieenian apjwared under the
gas lamp ou the corner lelow. In the
ditch at the spot where the youths had
been standing the outlines of a form,
apparently a man lying at full length,
either dead or drunk, could le indistinct
ly seen in the gloom.
The guardian of the night came leis
urely along, swinging his long night
stick and casually glancing about to see
that everything was all right. Arriving
opposite the form he stopped, aauked at
the object twice to make sure that bis
eyes did not deceive him and then he
"If that man's not stiff to-morrow me
name's not Dennis"
Then he stepped from the curb so that
he stood near to the prostrate man.
"Git up out o' that," he ejaculated, in
a foggy voice that would have awakened
Rip Van Winkle before his sleep was
The form showed no signs of life, and
a No. 1 1 boot emphasized another com
mand fo get np. The result was the
same. The officer then reached down
and took hold of the man's coat collar
and braced himself for a heavy pull. He
pulled, and he sat right down on the
curbstone, so heavily that he saw stars.
At the same instant a uozen shrill yells
of derision, such as only street Arabs can
give vent to, broke upon the stillness of
the night, and a dozen forms darted out
of doorways and disappeared in the dark
ness.' The policeman examined the straw
man, for that was what it was, and found
that a sandbag had been placed at the
ppot where he was most likely to kick,
and where, in fact, ho did kick. Then
he got up, turned the form over and
walked along, muttering:

TACKUNO THE LOBSTER.
A Tariff Drag Ket with
Small Mat, heft.
Daniel Webster onco told his friends,
after returning from u visit to Europe,
that the sublimest thiig he had heard
while abroad was spoil en by Sir Robert
PeeL The great English statesman was
making his speech in p irli&rnent accom
panying the annual budget for raising
revenues. A dry enough theme, certain
ly; and perhaps no one but Webster saw
the sublimity of the sei.tence referred to.
Sir Robert was giving in detail the va
rious sources from which money was to
be raised. He had en jmerated all the
more important articles of taxation, and
had come -to speak of the comparatively
insignificant miscellaneous articles usual
ly grouped together in our tariff sched
ules as "sundries." Finally drawing
himself up, he said:
"And now we come to the onion seed."
It struck Webster as really sublime
that the mind of a man like Peel, who
was then directing the affairs of the
greatest empire on earth, should be so
comprehensive and show- such a mastery
of details as not to overlook the "onion
And now our Mr. McKinley seems tc
be in a fair way to rise to the same sort
of sublimity. He is searching about for
all possible subjects for protection,
whether on the earth or under the earth
or in the waters which girdle the earth
He has cast his great tariff net, with
meshes exceeding line, into the seas, and
lias brought up our old friend who meets
us at church festivals a id gives us dys
peptic nigh U as a reward for our devo
tion to him. Mr. McKinley has fished
up this lobster, and lind i, to his unspeak
able horror, that this popular crustacean
does not bear the brand of protection.
"Gobi," says Mr. Mckinley, "then we
will protect hiia."
But the lobster puckers of Maino do
not relish this at all. They want the
cheap lobster of Cumuli m waterj to pack
for the American markets.
Lobsters are very cheap up in Nova
hootia. In Halifax tluy tell of an Eng
lishman who came there some time ago
aud was determined toeat enough lob
ster "for once. So be I anded the waitei
a dollar and a half and Cold him to lay it
out in lobsters for him.
"What! all this?"
"Yes; all that."
The waiter took the e nglishman at his
word, went out into the market and soon
rolled in two barrels o: lobsters before
the astonished traveler.
Now the packer of Maine object, and
so thev have sent a c iimittee down to
Washington to tight tlio "protection'
which Mr. McKinley rojKses to give
them. But the paekeis, ultliougli they
did not ask for "protection," are to have
it forced ujmiii them. Tliey found tilings
at aslnngton even woise than they had
HiipiHMed. Not onlv is t he lobster to be
protected, but the tin cms are also to .
provided for by bills no v in the hands of
the committee. These duties will cause
a considerable increase in the cost of lob
ster, and llie consumption will be there
by limited. The jiackeru have already
sold for future delivery at fixed prices,
and if these dtitus slu uld lie imposed
they would be compelled to tdl their con
tracts at a loss.
The packers are not liielv to be allow
ed what Roln-rt Burns c ills "the glorious
privilege of lieing indejieiideiit." Their
representatives at Washington found
that the tariff tinkerers are l;nt on pro
tecting everybody and everything,
whether protection is wanted or not by
those concerned. Higher protection and
greater appropriations are now the
watchwords at Washington, ami tho ap
peals of merchants for lower taxes meet
with little consideration.
Asa last resort, from vbich they them
selves hope very little will come, the
packers and dealers are now circulating
a petition for signatures urging that the
lobster be let alone.
