THE SLUGGER AND THE LAW.
Gen. Kettle ton Pug-geitta that Slavin Is
Washington, June 26. In view of the
agitation regarding the strict enforcement
of the alien contract Tabor law the atten
tion of Assistant Secretary Nettleton, of
the treasury department, was called to the
following announcement in a cablegram
concerning Secretary Blaine's son-in-law:
fc Walter Danirosch has engaged Herr
Protzky, of Leipsic, for his New York
orchestra." Gen. Xettleton said that in this
case he thought there would be no complaint
as Herr Protzky, it would be readily con
ceded, was an artist, and hence came with
in the provisions of the law.
Is Pugilism an Art?
"But is not Slavin an artist?" General
Nettleton was asked.
Decorative artist, maybe," answered
General Nettleton, with a sniiie. "The
whole question raised against the persons
who brought Slavin to the country turns
upon the point whether or not Slavin is an
artist. If it can be shown that his calling
is recognized as an art, and that Mr. Slavin
exemplifies the art, why, no case can hold
against those persons who entered into the
contract to bring him to America."

Her Boat Crew Win a Race with Colum

New Lonpon, Conn., June . The
Cornell university yesterday won a boat
race from the University of Pennsylvania
and Columbia crews in the fast time of
14m. 27,'8., thereby chopping V)4 seconds
off the best previous time on the Thames
river course by any of the college
crews. The conditions, however, were
favorable for fast time, the water being
smooth, a strong current running, and
the wind blowing so as to be of the most
assistance to the racers. The race was
probably the most exciting ever vowed
Bow and Bow for Two Miles.
The Pennsylvania crew developed unex
pected strength, and rowed almost bow
for bow with the crack Cornell crew for
nearly two miles. Nearing the finish, how
ever, Cornell-spurted in magnificennform,
and drawing away from their opponents
easily won by four ojjen lengths. Colum
bia was a bad third, liuishing five lengths
behind Pennsylvania. The poor showing
ot Columbia was a surprise, as tley liave
shown much better form in their practice.
The distance was three miles. Yale is the
strong favorite for today's race.

Loxooy, J uue 26. Charles Stewart Par
nell and Mrs. O'Shea were married at
Steyning, Sussex, yesterday. The paii
hired a phaeton, and at 6 a. m. were driven
to that place from Brighton by a circuitous
route. They reached Steyning about 9
o'clock in a heavy rain. Mrs. O'Shea,
knowing the situation, took the ribbons,
and drove direct to the registrar's office ,
where the ceremony took p lace, the only
witnesses being two servants of the regis
trar. In order to satisfy Roman Catholic
sentiment, there will be a second marriage,
this time by a clergyman in London, as
soon as possible.
An Omen of Bad Luck.
The Irish, both Protestants and Roman
Catholics, have a superstition that a wet
day is an unlucky omen for a wedding.
If there is anything in such omens there is
not much good luck in store for the newly
married pair. The morning was gloomy,
and it soon began to rain in torrents. It
was learned that Mrs. O'Shea had earnest
ly desired a religious ceremony, but the
conscientious scruples of the Church of
England clergymen against marrying a
divorcee and Parnell's strong antipathy
for dissenting persons, in consequence of
their fierce onslaughts upon him, con
spired to render a civil marriage necessa
ry. All Roman Catholics and many Prot
estants consider such a marriage void.
What the Watchers Noticed.
Parnell went to Brighton on leaving the
house of commons Wednesday and dined
with Mrs. O'Shea, whose residence is next
door to his own. The couple spent
the evening listening to music and chat
ting together. The watchers noticed that
the lights were out earlier than usual,
and they did not see ParneH leave the
house until 6. o'clock in the morning. He
then took a hort waik, omitting his usual
ride. The departure was before bseak fast.
Parnell wore a flower on his coat, and
was clad in a suit of unusual elegance
for him. Mrs. O'Shea seemed in high
ione at Onre to Houftekreping.
The newly married pair returned to
Brighton at their leisure, and at 10 o'clock
last evening a correspondent, on calling
for the purpose of obtaining some infor
mation, found them snugly eusonsed iu
Mrs. O'Shea's domicile, with every evi
dence that the beginning of their do
mestic life was not to be postponed until
the blessing of the church had been pro
nounced upon the union. It is ail by
those who assume to know that the uewly
married couple will proceed immediateiy
to the continent and remain there several
No V'se of Speculation.
All speculation as to the effect of the
marriage cm Parnell's political career are
at present useless. His income from his
Wicklow estates amounts about -2,X)0,
out ef which jointures for his sisters have
to be paid, but he has made profitable in

enterprises which have largely increased

ANNOYING STRIKE AT PARIS.
Bakers, Butchers, and Grocers Givii.t; a
Heap of Trimble.
Paijis, June 'A There is a tripartite
strike on foot here which involves the
chance of nearlyjall Paris being left with
out food. It includes the bakers, who be
gan it, and the butchers and grocers, who
fell into line later. The first step was a
meeting of jKVt bakers, who resolved to
strike against the registry o;a-cx They
had a collision with the police, ami u.juy
heads were broken and arrests made. The
butchers then resolved to strike f'r the re
dress of their wrongs. Then the grocers
startled Paris by joiuim; the striking bak
ers and but ;hers in the lucvefnetit for
shorter hours and more money. The situ
ation is one which iu times pa-t. could
hardly have had any other result than
the appearaace of the ominous barri
cades. The Burden on the Bonnes.
At a meeting of the council of ministers
held to consider the situation it was de
cided that, in the eveut of th st! ike ex
tending master bakers, butcher:-, grocer,
and others w ho enjoy the privileges' and
emoluments attaching to the ribt to sell
their wnres to rhe public of 1'arU mu-t

supply of f'ioJ -sufficient to protect the peo
ple of the city against pokle hardship.
The government is determined to confine
itself to the policy of protecting the peo
ple, ns a whole.
THOSE AFRICAN ENVOYS.
They Are fjuite the Kage iu I.oixton at
London. Jane -ts. Gungunhama's en
voys are the lions of the town, society
turning to the savages and their queer
ways as a relief to the strain of recent
events, lluhilkulu is especially funny.
When shown a hippopotamus the other
day at the Zoological gardens he wanted to
kill the animal, which is much detested in
Gungunhama's country. Hululkulu is
much impressed by the beautiful women
who have been amocg his aristocatic visi
tors, though he remarked to the interpre
ter that they ought todrink plenty of milk,
it beiug the custom among his country
eople to fatten women on milk.
Frightened a Iied-Cheeked Boy.
Although the envoys are above sus
picion of cannibalism, they nearly fright
ened a rad-cheeked lxy into a fit, at the
gardens, by the earnest way in which they
regarueu mm, ana some clumsy attempts
at familiarity. Apart from the curiosity
excited by their visit, however, there is no
doubt that it will have an important po
litical bearing on tbe future of southeast
Africa, Lord Salisbury having substan
tially concluded to accept Gungunhama as
a vassal of England, and to extend over
him the protection of the government.
