Success of the Fair.
There are persons not a few who
have been disappointed in the at

At the centennial exhibition in Phil
adelphia the paid admissions during
May were 37, 90; at Chicago they
numbered 1,050,037; or nearly three

the figures were C95.CGC; at Chicago
they were 2.639.395. or considerably
more than three to one.
The total paid admissions at Phila
delphia were 9,910,900. If the three
to one proportion is maintained, as
there is little doubt that it will, the
admissions at Chicago will be about

The Senatorial Campaign in Illinois.
Shelby Cullom's successor in the
United States senate should be nomi
nated in the state convention that
will meet next year. The democrat
ic party in Illinois has declared in
favor of the election of United States
senators by the people. In the ab
sence of action on this matter by con
gress, the democrats of this " state
fchould do as they did in 1890; nomi
nate their choice and let him make a
canvass of the 6tate during the cam
paign. Illinois democracy has plenty
of good senatorial material. But the
next senator to be elected should be
an issue in the next etate campaign.
In that way it will be an issue in each
senatorial district in the choice of
members of the legislature.
Democrats in Illinois cannot afford
to take a backward step in this mat
ter. There must be no slip in the
replacing of Shelby Cullom by a dem
ocrat; a democrat who can command
the respect and votes of the people
of Illinois, as well as the votes of the
members of the next legislature.
Callom's successor should be chosen
ly the state convention, not by a
party caucus in the legislature.
The prosperity of Blue and Gray,
which has been noteworthy even in
this country of great successes in
journalism, has been signalized by
the publishers in their July number.
A new dress of tyjx;, extra tine paper
and matte: of surpassing interest, as
well as numerous excellent illustra
tion's, mark the beginning of the sec
ond volume. Among the more prom
inent features in the contents for
July are sj mposiums on the battle of
Gettysburg and Vicksburg, by well
known survivors on both sides.
These articles are embellished with
about 30 engravings, all made espec
ially for Blue and Gray.
The Jul issue of the Club con
tains an interesting and authentic
article on "Club Life in Japan,"
written by John J. Quia, English
consul at Nagasaki, Japan. Mr.
Quin's long residence in Chrysanthe
mum land xives him the ability to
speak by tbe book. "The Financial
Magnitude of the Club Movement" is
also discussed in this number, and
there is mi eh bright gossip of clubs
and clubmen from San Francisco,
Philadelphia and the south. The
magazine is handsomely illustrated
with drawings by well-known artists,
not the letut attractive feature being
a cartoon by "Chip," the subject,
"The First Handicap." being appro,
priateto the season.
An important article, entitled
"The Future of Presbyterianism in
the United States," has been written
for the July number of the North
American Peview by Prof. Charles
A. Briggs, whose recent trial for
"heresy" created so much excite
ment. The duke of Veragua has
written an article on "The Family of
Columbus.'" "How Distrust Stops
Trade," is 1 he title of an article by
Edward" A kinson. the well-known
economist. The July number of the
North American Review will contain
an article on "Silver Legislation and
Its Results." by the ex-director of
the mint, Hon. Howard O. Leech.
"Should thu Chinese be Excluded?"
is a question that will be answered bv
Congressman Geary and Col. Ingcr

will appear will be "Australian Wo

"The Weakness of Mr. Davis'

C. D. Lanier tells of the personality
and sketches the picturesque career
of Thomas A. Edison. The interview
with Mr. Ed son presents fully the
great inventor's views of the further
triumphs in electrical science that
are about to come to us. A striking
and picturesque contrast to the Edi
son article is J. Munro's character
sketch on Sir William Thomas, Lord
Kelvin. Mr. Munro tells how Lord
Kelvin made the Atlantic cable pos
sible and how he invented the best
mariner's co npass; and the personal
ity of the great Scotch professor is a
theme of no less absorbing interest
than his wonderful achievements in
scienue. All these articles are pro

A PERILOUS TRIP.
That Made In China Many Year Ago
Through Chinese Tartary.
It may be safely asserted that not
one of his episcopal brethren has ever
performed such a feat as formed an
episode ia the early life cf the newly
appointed bishop of Norwich. After
serving a couple of years as curate
under Dr. Hooks at Leeds, Mr. Sheep
shanks went out to British Columbia
in 1859, when that colony was a far
wilder and more isolated country than
now. He did eight years of the rough
work and then determined to go home
for a holiday, at all events, electing to
travel via Japan and China, in those
days a by no means familiar route.
For months he disappeared entirely
from mortal ken and his family began
to entertain serious misgivings as to
his fate. One evening a young
Cambridge man, afterward head mas
ter of a wll-known grammar school,
but tutor tor the nonce to a Russian
prince, was smoking a cigarette in his
rooms in St Petersburg, when his ser
vant announced that a moujik wanted
to see him very urgently. The un
known visitor was shown up and ap
peared in the well-worn garb from
which Brian O'Lynn devised his simple
but practical sartorial notions. To his
host's utter bewilderment this un
couth being addressed him in refined
English, and presently explained that
he was a brother Cantab desirous of
securing his good offices. The man,
in short, was Rev. John Sheepshanks,
who, having landed some six months
before near the mouth of the A moor
river, had made his way alone and on
foot through Tartary, Turkestan and
Siberia to the banks of the Neva.
CAN'T BE WAIVED.
Being Tried by a Jury of Twelve O
A defendant in a murder casa in
New York state was once placed on
trial before a jury of twelve. A mem
ber of the jury died during his trial.
The prisoner's counsel agreed with the
district attorney that the trial should
continue before eleven jurors and that
no record of the death of one of their
number should be entered on the min
utes of the court. The prisoner was
convicted and sentonoed to punish
ment. An appeal was afterward taken
to the effect that neither his counsel
nor the district attorney nor the court
nor the prisoner had a right to wave
the latter" s right to a trial by twelve
jurors. The conviction was set aside
for that reason. As, however, noth
ing in the record showed in a formal
and official way that the trial
occurred and that the verdict
was rendered by less than twelve jur-'
ors, it was also held that the man had
been put once in jeopardy and could
not be put twice in the same position.
He was, therefore, discharged. He
was thus tried and not tried, found
guilty and not found guilty, convicted
and practically acquitted at the same
time and under the same proceeding.
The contention was that every man
indicted and tried for crime previous
to his arraignment, and everyone who
might be so indicted and so tried after
his arraignment had an interest in his
trial by twelve jurors, a right to his
trial by twelve jurors, and that when
he waived his own right he impaired
their right in their trial and their
tight in his trial and that the thing
could not be permitted.
