Since his election as mayor of Buffalo it
is a notable fact that Orover Cleveland
has never been beaten before the people,

It is safe enough to say thit ftlmost buy
other democrat who was mentioned in
connection with the nomination would, if
put at the behd of the ticket, have bee
elected, but none of them wauld have se
cured the vote which was rolled tip for j
Cleveland. Neither I linois nor Wicon
in could have contributed a man who
would have been as strong as Cleveland
in the wist as a whole, nor could Ohio
have done this. He created thtt issues
and marked out the lines on which the
victory has been gained. His free trade
message to congress in 1887 formed the
chief issue on which the etimpaigrjs of
1888 and 189a turned. The defeat of
tbe former year be finds amply compen
sated for in the brilliant triumph of the
present year. It is, in a large e'egree, a
personal victory, and it is entirely proba
ble that he views it in this light. Tbe
extent of his majority proclaims that the
people believed him to be better than
his party. He has been commissioned
to run the administration to suit himg.til,
and be may be relied on to obey the
command with the nearest practicable
approach to literalness. He will be the
boss of his party as no other president
has been cince Jackson.

8a Skillful That They Can Bun a Una
Almost Under a reraon'a Mom Without
Hia Berne Aware of It.
On the roof of a lofty building in the
business district two brawny linemen were
toiling among the network of wires fas
tened to a high series of cross arms. One
bent his ear close to a tiny telegraph in
s'rument connected with a wire, while the
other, nnder his direction, busily twisted
I wo wires together,
"Hold on,' cried tbe man listening at
1 the Instrument. "They want to measure
i resistance. We'll have to wait awhile."
! The two descended, and behind a huge
rliimrjey lit their pipes. Asked a young
man, who had been watching them with
"'S oppose yon wanted to string a wire
from this to that building opposite, bow
would you do it?
'That's against the law, young man,"
responded the taller of the two linemen.
"Telegraph companies never break the
"But suppose you wanted to?"
"Yonng man, if I wanted to rarry a wire
across the street from here I'd let yon go
down on the sidewalk And watch, and
while you were watching I'd get the wire
over and yon'd uever know it. How" Well
that's a bu.sine.ss secret, but I don't mind
telling yon that I've known men to per
form the feat several ways. If I wanted
to do it I might, take that pilot wire, for
instance, that is composed of two or three
strands. I might twist a bunch of wires to
gc acrosm the street till they exactly re
semble the pilot wire to an observer on
the si.Vwslk. I might cut the pilot wire,
hitching 01. my bunch, and keeping it taut
by main strength my man opposite would
slowly haul it over.
"You wouldn't know it was moving.
When he had wire enough I'd shake out
the v.ire.s I wanted from the buneli and
leave the rest to make pjotl the gap in the
pilot. If 1 couldn't find a pilot, wire on the
particular roof I d take the biggest cauge
single wire there and hitch twosmall wires
twisted together to it. make a fine joint,
and rny assistant would haul them over.
One would serve to rr.ake up the break in
the big wire, the other would be mine. If
I were driven to it and hud to get a rope
across the street I'd work either early iu
the evening or early in the morning, when
I have heard there are only a few police
men around, and those either asleep or
chumps t!iL wouldn't know what 1 was
"I knew a man on Dearborn street who
had one wire in his office and had to have
another. Au enemy swore he shouldn't,
and hin d a man and a policeman to w atch
the corners of two buildings on opposite
sides of the street and the sky to see that
no wire was strung. While they were
looking the wire went over. It was a little,
two strand cable, just the size of the single
wire, and after it vras fastened to the iat
ter and the juirit nicely soldered it tn.-k an
hour to pull it s lowly over."
"If you were to undertake such a job
'.n't you lie li;! ! to mistake th- wire
et the wrong one? There are a -ood
many on the roof tops."
"Yes, there are thousands of them tel
egraph, telephone, electric light, signal,
fire alarm, public and private, dead and
secret but there are scores of linemen
that know every one. I can put my hands
on a dozen men, any one of whom yen can
take blindfolded on any roof anil he'li tell
you the name, number, ownership, use,
destination, origin nnd age of every wire
in the l.igge.-t rack you can fin.!.' It's
kind of a natural knowledge. You either
know it or you don't. I know a man who
can't read or write, but he can break open
a thirty-two strand cable nnd pick out, the
wire he wants.
"It is always a fellow who knows tlie
wire geography of the roofs," he con
tinued, "that makes the taps. Are there
many taps? You don't hear of a fraction
of them. It is natural that sometimes
people would try to catch the secrets
worth thousands of dollars that go over
telegraph wires, ain't it?"
"I was after a tap the other day and
found it in our own office tower. It re
minded me of another in the days of the
hottest war against the bucket shops. A
certain shop was getting quotations. We
made a dozen testa and tours and found
nothing. Finally, by accident, I discov
ered the operator in a certain hotel had his
Instrument near a telephone, and shouted
quotations out too loudly. I looked at that
telephone and found that it was ke-.t. in
circuit by a little wooden peg under the
lever, which was apparently with the ear
piece hanging in it. That was a cood
dersof iron eighteen inches thick were in
dented and twisted so as to become aselens,
as in the case of the great pulley ladders of
a sea dredger; bow, in fine, a column of
tones, each weighing more than a ton and
faat riveted with iron girders and with ce
ment, was thrown down like a pack of
cards, and it will be for meteorologists to
explain how ji island thirty-three miles by
thirty-one in extent, through which the
center of a cyclone is passing, can escape at

notes. Blackwood's Magazine.
Murder Doea Not Alwaya Oat.
The old adage that "murder will out" is,
after all, more or less of a fiction. Scores
of murders go unpunished every year
throughout tbe civilized world, largely for
lack of proof against tbe murderers. The
resources of civilization are open to crimi
nals as well as to officers. It is possible
for a murderer to commit his crime and
then be whirled hundreds of miles away
before the deed is discovered. He knows
Just what methods will be used to secure
his capture, and he may have planned how
to outwit such attempts before they are
Murder is often and even usually dis
covered and punished, but there are many
such crimes that have had no explana
tion and it is posmble that the Fall Hirer
tragedy may be one of these. Boston Ad

"Yes," said the landlady after a f ruitlew

Crimes of High Civilization.
May Dot New England's murders be ac
cepted as manifestations of the peculiar
weakness of an old and advanced civiliza
tion How else may they be accounted for?
Upon what other basis may we solve th
yearly reiteratal riddle of the unspeakable
scandals of London, the very center uud
fountain of modern civilization? It tae
most shocking crimes are not related some
how or other to the progress of civilization,
W hy should we look for and find alwavsthe
very refinement of villainy in Varia, tiie

The services of tbe logician and the aOi

team together, but surely as much may be
said as bas been said without risking a
conviction for sophistry. Boston Globe.
