The report of toe Grant monument

Gov. Campbell, of Ojio. used to be a

so did ex-Gov. Gray, of Indiana; so did
ex-Go?. P!mer, of Illinois; so did John
F. Andrew, Josiah Quincy, George Fred

TnK anti trust law enacted by the res
cent session of the Illinois legislature is a
powerful one. It has been in operation
since July 1, and is attracting the notice
of the merchants in some of the larcer
cities, who have informed manufacturers
that they must annul their contracts.
The penalty for persons, copartnerships
or corporations forming pools and com
binations to control or regulate the price
of manufactured articles is fixed at f 500
for the first offense, and as high as f l.
SOO for a repetition. It is further pro

The resolutions passed by the execu
tive committee of the republican national
committee in honor of Mr. Quay have
their serious as well as their humorous
side, as the New York Sun observes. Mr.
Quay is scarcely the great and good man
described in the resolutions, but he was
great and good enough to elect Hon.
Benjamin Harrison president. Mr. Liar
rison seems to be somewhat ashamed of
the fact, and has been far from manifest
ting a proper spirit of gratitude. Yet
in case he should be renominated, he will
be very fortunate if there is anybody who
will manage his canvass with such dex
terity as was displayed by the Hon. Mat
thew Stanley Qiay. In view, however,
of Harrison's lukewarmness toward the
man who pulled him through, what in
duce men can the members of the republi
can national committee have to work for
Harrison in another campaign? What
inducement have the managing politicians
of the republican party to desire the suc
cess of a candidate who forgets the man
that made him. Gratitude may or may cot
be a common virtue in politics, but the
display of a semblance of it is sometimes
useful. A candidate for renominatioa
cannot afford to be forgetful to those who
have done him favors.
The "Washington correspondent of the

The Itudini ministry feel that tbey acted
hastily in recalling Bsron Fava, and ttey
will, it is thought, embrace the first op
portunity constant with their national
dignity to reopen their legation at Wash
ington with a minister again in charge.
They are hoping, I understand, that Pres
ident Harrison wi.l, in his message to
congress next December, recommend a
suitable indemnity to the families of such
cf the dead bicilians as were not natural
ized citizens of this country.
The failure of congress to set favor
ably on the recommendation will not
affect its influence in the slightest decree.
It will be regarded by the Italian governs
ment as an expression i:of "royal favor,"
so to speak, and as such possesses an im
portance in their eyes fur beyond that of
a dozen congresses.
"But what," I asked rf the diplomat
who furnished me with this information,
"will Italy do in case President Harrison
floes not recommend an indemnity?"
"Some of your senators and repre
sentatives," he replied, "will introduce a
bill embodying that principle. That will
do. It will indicate a friendly feeling on
the part of the American congress and
the result will be the same. Italy will
send you a representative and the past
'" will be forgotten."

WILLIAM NYES OPINION
IT IS NICE TO BE A CRITIC LIKE
Because Ton Can Come to America and
BrtTO on Canrasback Dock and Such
Thing and Then Run Home and
CopjTigbt, 1801, by Edrar XV. Kre.l
Last rxonth another hollow English
man with a diaeresis over his name, hav
ing filled himself full of American hospi
tality and groceries, crossed the moaning
sea, and after having taken the long,
wet trail for home, he sat down and
wrote a piece for a magazine, which it is
safe to say was in very bad taste. But
we like fair play in America, and so it
was read here by several people. The
stray Englishman with dyspepsia, born
no doubt of a former long and nnavoid-

able but involuntary abstinence from
food and the sudden hospitality of his
ill advised hosts, wrote what he evi
dently deemed a scathing criticism of
certain social aspects of American life,
drew his j ay for it and disappeared.
His nan e was Hamilton Aide.
He says among other things that the
"love of privacy, so prominent a feature
in the Etiglish character, is unknown
here, the privilege of exclusion so rigid
ly enforce! in the walls and fences of
our gardtns, the closed doors of our
withdraw-.ng rooms, on the first floor, is
rarely enf .reed here." But it is froiui;
to be, Mr. Aide. We are going to le
more par apniar in the future. We are
getting acquainted with your methods,
and we sh.ill be more careful in the years
If your nobility cannot play a fair
game of cards of an evening or over

plaint, what may we expect of one who
is not nob e at all, and who visits in our
country only what is free, and who then
imagines lie is familiar with American
1 do not know Mr. Aide very well, but
it has been my misfortune to cross his
plague strxken trail once or twice to
gnaw at the closely cropped herbage
among the hills where yet still lingered
the echo of his bray.
Judging by the sentiment expressed
by the low, coarse innkeejiers along the
chicken f.-ather trimmed orbit through
which he passed, it wiil be money in his
pocket if l.e will not come that way any
more. If lie should, there are intima
tions that good recite for removing
eg stains from wearing apparel will be
a great cor veuience to him on his steamer
Mr. Aide, whose signature shows that
he neglected to put up his fly screens
until too late in the reason, says that
matners among "servants of both sexe
are peculiar, as indeed they are in all
the lower nrders (if one may be allowed
such an expression abont Americans)."'
Judging from Mr. Aide's familiarity
with Am-rican society, the article lie
has written should have been entitled.
"Some As.iects of Life Among Ameri
can Servants." Then this gentle criti
cism of in. ne would Lave been unneces
sary and v. n wri tteu.
"Dinners," he says, "as a rule, in pri
vate houst s. are less good and less well
served th.m 1 expected to find them."
You will i i.tice a great failing off even
from this Hamilton, if yon will come
back here u-xt season. There will be a
very noticeable flavor of pounded glass
in your j ie. and even- bed quilt in our
broad and beautiful laud will contain a
little checkered sample of your loud and
vociferous panties pried from the un
willing jaws of the household dog.
"Some of the dishes are excellent,
but," he a Ids, as be dips his trenchant
pen in the bluing bottle at his cozy little
hall bedr om in Whitechapel street,
"the prevt lent taste for uncooking a cau
vasback duck generally renders that
admirable bird a forbidden fruit to me."
But that is not what renders it "a for
bidden fruit" to him at home.
The reason he does not keep his flabby
being continually upholstered with can
vasback duck at home is probably the
same one that prompted him to have his
wine and the blacking of his boots
charged t) Mrs. Stanley at San Jose,
Cal., in th-j spring of the present year of
our Lord and of the freedom of the
United States from the rule of Great
Britain th one hundred and fifteenth.
Mr. Aid. accompanied Mrs. Stanley,
Mrs. Tenoant and Captain Jephson to
San Jose, where he registered as "Mrs.
Stanley and party." They stopped at the
Vendome, a first class, tip top hotel,
which had preserved a blameless reputa
tion np to that time. Mr. Aide, the new
Eudyard Kipling, who will doubtless
lecture here by and by, was asked to
register for the party, which he would
have done if he had ever traveled before.
He flew into a beastly passion and re
fused to register or give names of any of
the party, insisting that it was a piece of
American impertinence on the part of
the hotel that he never saw equaled.
He finally told how many rooms they
wanted, to which he added a private
Everyth ng was ordered sent to the

and had to pay for blacking the boots

That is the reason why Mrs. Tennant
afterward spoke so bitterly of her bill at
the Vendome. Her guest had "done her

among the lower classes, if one may
speak in that way here, and 1 think one
may if one pays one's bills.- .
Hamilton suffered most severely in
the west. He found no congenial society
there, all the Englishmen of his stripe
having been hanged on their arrival, or
on most anything else in fact that came
handy in a prairie country where timber
is rare and hard to get hold of.
He bears down especially hard on Col
orado Springs and Denver, two of the
most delightful cities in the world, for 1
know, having visited Paris, London and
East Saginaw within the past two years,

ing my own boots or gladly putting up

young bunions, or fork over my liquor
bills for a W. O. T. U. to pnt np for,
may my right hand cleave to the roof of
my mouth, and an incensed people play
shinney o'er my forgotten grave.
Mr. Aide did not like the "surprise
party" of tbe ranche out west. He will
like it less the next time he is invited.
Western people are informal, but their
hearts are warm. They are hospitable
to a degree that would naturally sur
prise and unman a real man for the mo
ment. It would not affect Mr. Aide es

"parlour" he turns to and seeks to le
m:re and besmirch, by satire and such
things, the furniture and decorations of
his illgnided hostess, whose error was in
not showing him to the sty and letting
him look over the album.
Possibly 1 may be charged with shak
ing too directly on this subject, but it is
only my own opinion. I do not hold the
paper responsible, and if Mr. Aide does
not like it he may readily reach me by

He did not like it because onr ladies
did iu.t allow him to see them work.
This was in deference to him, for no one

some time in the future he will probably
notice the pleasant litter of employment,
and he will furnish The most of it himself.

That is true, Hamilton, but it is not
so bad as to live in a town where the no
bility do things so nasty that even the
London press dare not print them.
As Americans. Mr. Aide, we have onr
faults. We know it and we are trying
to do better. When the people of your
country were of our age they had not
yet begun to walk on their hind legs
steadily at all, and most of your titled
people were squealing in the branches
of the umbrageous forest.
We know that we are still crude. One
of our greatest weaknesses consists in
being picked up and "done up'' by every
imitation man who gets a letter of intro
duction ifrom an English barber and
comes here with an appetite and a hat
box to frighten the food supply, founder
himself, write a piece and go home. We
have done that a good deal, and we
ought to know better; but we do not.
We go right on doing it, because we de

But it is being overdone. We need a

Aide, for quite awhile. Stay at home
