TCESDAT, FEBKUAKT 28, 1893.
It is now said that Postmaster
General Wannamaker lost nearly a
million by the Reading collapse. So
Pious John is among the others
whose manipulations have caused
every anthracite consumer to pay a
dollar or more a ton in advance of
former quotations the past winter,
oil! The accusation is hardly to be
Henky Wattekson expresses him
self upon the tariff, saying: "Oh,
the tariff will be adjusted to demo
cratic ideas and on pretty radical
lines. How can it be otherwise with
Mich a cabinet? Judge Gresham is
even more radically opposed to the
present tariff system than Cleveland
himself. And Senator Carlisle is
recognized as a master of the ques
tion. So is J. Sterling Morton, as I
have just pointed out. Hoke Smith,
of Georgia, whose selection I would
have made myself had I the power,
and whom Mr. Cleveland most cer
tainly ought to have chosen, while
perhaps not as familiar with the de
tails as the other, is a most earnest
advocate of an honest tariff and right
in line with his colleagues on the
subiect. So is Bissell. There can
not be the slightest doubt that the
day of tariff reform is at hand."
A Pricked Babbie.
Ambition is laudable, but like
wme other virtue it may be carried
to an undue extreme. When A. A.
McLeod succeeded to the presidency
of the Reading railroad company and
the allied coal company, the corpora,
-lion, though big in assets, was bur
dened with a huge debt and over
capitalization. In fact, it was prac
tically bankrupt and had been so for
many years. It would seem that to
place the vast property upon a sub
stantial financial basis would tie
sufficient task for any one man. But
Mr. McLeod did not think so. He
reached out for other worlds to con
quer before he had secured a firm
foothold in one. He must corner the
entire anthracite coal product of the
United States. To do this he made
close combination, amounting to
practical control, with the Lehigh and
Jersey Central companies, each an
immense corporation in itself. Then
he secured control of the New York
& New England and started in quest
of tke JJoston & Maine and other New
England companies. In fact it
looked lor a time as though the vora
cious McLeod would soon be the un
disputed master of the entire Atlantic
.seaboard. But on Monday the bub
lle burst, .and McLeod was lucky to
remain as one of the receivers of his
own bankrupt company, the Reading.
He had bitten off more than he could
diew. It is a consoling reflection to
hs humble persons that though one
man may appear for a time to be-
stride this narrow world like a Colos
Hus, the world is, after all, not so
narrow that it remains so bestrid
den longer than a few months
Swollen pigmies are more numerous
than genuine Colossi.

A Living Jupanexe Salamander.
Thonia3 S. Ki'.l, the young naturali3
of Knoxville, It., who is spending the
winter at rasa- el Tont, Tex., haa re
cently come into possession of a rare cu
riositya Japar ese salamander the gift
of a mend who is now "doing" the
orient. Accord ng to the descriptive tag
which was pastt d on the tin box in which
Mr. Salamander made his long trip, the
creature was caaght in one of the fresh
water lakes of the Japanese mountains
on the 4th of J lly last. Unfortunately
the tag does not state whether the speci
men is a young or an old example of the
salamander family. Naturalists who
have examined it Eince its arrival at the
Passe, however , declare that it is about
years of age.
It Is exactly 3 feet and 9 inches ir
length, has four legs, like an alligator.
and a very extensive caudal appendage.
The head is broad and flat, very "snaky
in appearance; i.he eyes so email as to b
hardly discernil .le. In color the creature
is a muddy, dark brown above, and
lighter underneath. The entire skin is
covered with "warts," or excresences
like those on a toad. When pressed
upon these warts exude a viscid, acrid
fluid, which is probably it3 only means
of defense. St Louis Republic.

Within a few days there will arrive in
New York for shipment to Chicago a
painting valued at $300,000 and of snch
huge dimensions that twe freight cars
will be require to bring it to this city.
The painting is a panorama of the Ber
nese Alps of Switzerland. It will be
placed on exhibition at the orld's fair
in a specially constructed building, hav
ing the distinction of being the largest
panorama ever painted.
When it retches Ivew iork, rpecial
rigging will have to be employed to take
it from the vessel. The roll of canvas
being 60 feet k ng. two freight cars pro
vided with a Jevice for turning short
curves will be used for its transporta
tion. Much of the material to be used
in the construction of the panorama
building is incl aded in the shipment, and
no time will le lost in putting it to
gether when it reaches Jackson park
the aun be:ng to have the panorama on
exhibition March 1. After the World'
fair the canvas will le shipped back le-
Switzerland. .Chicago Herald.
