We lake this opportunity of M aline, for the relief of those who see n to le exercised on the subject, that the ltAMMKMt.RT estate is thoroughly well prnkcteil by the New York courts ami that the Drtke of Marlboro can never HiHamler more than l lie revenue or sneh pert of them as the Duehees m ty choose lo relinquish to his questional!) ues. Indeed, It Is conjectured here by many persons who should be well In frmtl that Ihe suits referred to are not In fact genuine, but have been cjn rnclttl by Mnrllwro for the pttrp'tse c f atcettalnlnft whether he can break through the safeguards surrounding his wife's fortune and so take itotsesslon i r 11. Ot'K symi'athik are all with the hotel harpers In the matter of Sunday (having ami halr-cuttlng. There Is si together too much of this legislation of the people into moral conduot, or what ft few public official choose to regard as moral conduct. If certain rlilaens want to be shaved on Sunday nod e-in I' ml Wbtr willing to shave them we caNHtit set- that the Commissioners mve an) rlsbt to Inter fire Oin MiiKMtM tx Kentucky seem t I nvttMtppIng the boumls of wlvtmi whim they propose, as was done In the ('wftliiittiHtal Convention mi Wu.lni'S day, to authorise the Legislature to re tire charters at discretion. Should meh a clause endure the test of the courts, It would have the etfect of (becking the financial and Industrial development of the State to a very treat extent. A similar proposition In the Mississippi convention, quite recently, did not eselte special wonder, because Jllsslwlppl has long enjoyed promi nence In the practice of repudiation; Lut such a radical reversal of all the reecdents of Kentucky naturally ex- cltee the widest comment. Kuntuccy hss always been distinguished for bar religious observance of contract obliga tions, and to this was due the steady and Increasing prosperity that marked her history dutlng a period In which nearly bll the other Southern States were plunged In a svemlagly hopeless stag nation. The effect of the proposed de parture ean only be conjectured at this slaps of the proceedings, but we hardly think it will be favorable. Ubi.va I.ockwooii has come out in favor of reciprocity, but there Is a fear that she has mixed it up with the dhhltd skirt question. Public jmktuuoiT, wblen at first went nut very kindly toward the Chi ck arrangement, is rapidly Uklau the shape of a demand that the 'World's Pair be located at some other point. The hfckeflage and disagreements, the jealousies and dbeords and reerlwioa tlons which ebaraeteriM the proceed ings out there suggest nothlag so wuek as the adjective nauseous.

Attention to the foolmt In sit nctions end facts may be the means of avoiding many of the cause of no Isfartorv light. C11 In Washington, thanks to the fateful 1nprctlon of the Mre Marshal, Colonel Drew, Is never of a danger nu chntacter. but It often varies very mnch In iitiali'v. It shrmld id ways tie "water whltt .'' to use a technical term, thd absoliiidv free from snv cloudi WSS. The 1 .Hit Is due to glue fro-n hern Is or tu'ptnded dust or dirt wh1"h soosteT or la'er rlogs the wfeks of the lwp so that ilu-y an no longer suprdv oil to the tlmie. Attention to this pettrenler Is most Important for with out a clear oil a gnud light cannot be obtained. A high color Is due to the oxidation Sid gumlng of the oil by age or Im proptr refining 9wh sn nil may burn, but not ns wi4l as a water white oil, and also has a tendency to clog the wick or produce disagreeable and unhealthy produrts of combustion. Oils also vary as to their density, the lighter, more volatile and more easily Inflamed being the cheaper ami more dangerous. Thoy are gent rally designated In the trade by the itrgree Fahrenheit, at which they will Itiflame when heated and touched with a match, tbl being celled the Are t tt. The ordinary ketoteneof the trade Is iiMially denominated l-'O" Are test oil. but the greatir part of it will not teach this, while the denser kinds, some lime known as mineral sperm, head light till, snd by other fnnry namos, dies not ltllame until IWO" F. Of course this latter oil is the safer for all lists, as lamps containing It arc safe from explosion or Ignition If the lamp Is over turned. Unfortunately the proportion of this oil in petroleum is to small, and the cost of preparing It so much areater than In the case of ordinary kerosene, that Its ptlcc Is very much higher than ordinary oil, and precludes its use ex cept for localities where absolute safety and the best light Is desired, nor will nil burners work satisfactorily with this oil. Ordinary kerosene can be found In many grades and varying prices, nnd It Is Impossible for the purchaser to tell what he Is getting, but the price Is, with reliable dealers, n fair gauge. The cbonncst Is. by police regulation, within the limit of oidlnary safety, aside from carelessness and accidents, while the best, with the duplex or araand burners, gives a much superior light and with proportional safuty. One's means must decide the question of which to use. Lamps of almost any form will burn tliu common oil-, not all with equit safety, however. For the better oil the duplex or argand burners are ndvlsvile 01 ticceseary, either lo provide for the primer combustion of the ollornsuf lliliiit sir supply to the llama. No lamp should ever become so hot tiiat the tiand cannot be held upon the oil nrelvir nlthinit tltsrmnfort, otherwise tin re U danger. Iu a good I.iiid. especial!) with the denser nils, the ill suifsie in the receiver should ntm:r be Ik low live li.cbes from the top of the wick, ami the oftener the lamp is tilled tie bitter It will burn. A lamp which has had cloudy or c! nred oils In it should be thoroughly ckancd and new wicks Inserted before using a new oil, nnd It Is necessary to boll out the burner from time to time with soda lye or washing soda to re move the gummy mattur which acottni ulatts upon them. Mixing of good oils can do no harm. With a good lamp In good condi tion, that Is to say clean ami tilled with good oil, bad results may be due to 1. 1 no wick, wicus are seiiiom or inferior qualliy. but may he too closely or loosely woven or not tit the wick tube of the lamp. If too loosely woven, especially with the cheaper oils, the oil continues to creep up the wick when the lamp Is not In use and spreads an oily 11 1 m all over the outsldu of the lamp, A better oil or more closely woven wick Is the only remedy for this, and as a rule the cheaper the oil the denser the wick should be. When the wick does not lit the tubo It may be so large us to be unduly compressed and thus prevent the llow of oil, or It may be so loose as to Jar down. Several changes in wicks are often necessary before finding one suited to the lamp and nil. S. Clogging of the wlek. As has been mentioned, bud or old oils gum and clog the wick. The remedy for this is a belter oil after Inserting new wicks and cleaning the lamp. He sure the nil to bright, not cloudy and water white. 3. Wicks too short. The wicks uny not reach the level of the oil la the re ceiver, or it may be too far away from the name. When the lamp is nearly empty this Is advantageously not more than live laches from the Hame. 4. Trimming Scissors never should be used oa wicks, or, if they have beea, the wick should be treated as a new wick, as follows: The new wick should be put lu the wick tube of the burner after saturating it with oil, aad then, without immersing it la oil In the re ceiver, lighted and allowed to burn out. A gentle rubbing of the wlek surface turned low will then give an eves aad good wkk. The retaovalof charted and crushed porttoas of the wick by rubbing in this way should be repeat! as often as made necessary by the use of the lamp. By follow lag these suggeatiow a good lamp light way he obtained aad a eor ressMwdiag ataouHt of comfort.

It npfssvrs tha In 49? esses the postmaster remove 1 or resigned was a Democrat, In one ctse a I'mhlldttofllst, In one an Independent, nnd In two cases the incumbents being women, tt Is stated that they belonged to no political party.

From BIB answers recilved regarding the poli tics of the postmasters appointed tt ap peared that 510 weie Republicans. 1 was a Knight of Lalmr, 1 an Indepeml ent and 1 n Drmi-craL Tne Democrat was Samuel IV Ilutrls of Talladogo, Ala., of whom his predecessor writes: 'I was rrmoved bt'catiM! I was a Demo crat, and not in sympathy with Ilia Ad ministration, It was believed that my successor, being n prolectlonTit, was In sympathy with the Administration and would support It." The uniformity with which Demo crats were removed nnd Republicans appointed, foys the report, shows pretty clearly that political motives were not nbtmt in making those changes It nppcnrid in some cans that quite full Inquiries were mndc ns In the political faith of candidates for appointment be fore their comtnl'stons were Is'uoil. An Inetnnct! of this is an Investigation bv n posit lllro Inspector Into the pollllcil faith of Robert C. llallnnlync, appointed p Mmastcr nt llrackctsvlllu, Tex. Tbo employment of poMolllco In tpictors for this political work ut Gov ernment expense, the report says, car ries with It its own criticism. To In unities as to tha political services rendered bv the new appointees In tha last campaign nnd olscwhero the com mittee received -100 answers. Iu 155 esses it was stated that no services were tendered, 0 cases were disputed, while in 5W5 cases a little over OU per cent the new appointees wotc active In party woik. 1 he committee quotes letter written by Representative .Morse of MumicIiu sens, t orgswtll of Masiachusetta. IVr kinsof Kansas, and others tosh iw that itiuovsls and appointment were made on various pnti.s which, In ilw opia Inn !! tin- commlttru, wire Inten led to ciAer political reasons. An Inisnce'o which particular attention U piid Is Hie rimoval of K M. Li (kwrodof Hurling ton Knn. Jlr. I.ockwood received a letter from Representative Harrison Kelly, saying that his successor would likely be np pointed within tbreo weeks, and offer ing him the opportunity of resigning. Sir. I.ockwood did not resign and he was removed. Squire M. Lane was up pointed to the place. He Immediately appointed Sir. Kelly's daughter to a place In his olllcu and afterword made her assistant postmaster. It Is clear to the committee, says the report, that the numerous changes, more than (il per cent, of all the Pros! denllal postmasters, has been In a groat measure political. Mr. Clarkson, In an interview sent through the United Press to all the leading newspapers in the country, is reported assaying: "The I'tesldentbna made no removals except for cause, for delinquency, InelUclency or violation of law. He refused to make any changes for partisan reasons." "Our Inquirlee," says the committee, "have led us to the conviction that this declaration cannot be true; and, in our opinion, It would have been more Just to have acknowledged the existence of political Influences." This would have involved an Incon sistency with the promisee of the last Republican platform: that the "spirit ana purpose of the Civil Bervlce law should be observed in all Kxecutlvo ap polntments." Hut, where the fact la as clearly established as it is In this case, the avowal of such inconsistency would have been far better than the attempt to conceal it by giving reasons for the changes, which, In point of fact, are not the reel ones. .It was indeed hardly to be expected "that the spirit of civil service reform" in the PostotHce Department could be enforced through such Instrumentalities as Mr. Clarkson and Mr. Waaaruaker. Mr. Clarkson has been openly and con spicuously au opponent of the reform. At lloston, at Pittsburg and elsewhere, be has In public speeches eadeavored lo dtscrtdit the system to wbleh his party phdged itself.

ACQUITTED OF A CRAVE CHARQE. A Complmry Actnot NciTapapsr Mu Fall Through. Sioux City, Iowa, Nov. 15. At Ida Grlve yesterday Georgo T. Williams, one of the oldest and best known news paper men In this section, was acquitted of a charge of arson, after a long trial. Last April the Grand Opera-House was set on tire, and in August last Williams was arrested on the cvidenco of a man named Morrow. On tha trial Morrow swore that Williams proposed to him to burn the opera-house. Morrow's wife and sister swore to having overheard the plot. The defense showed that Mor row's character was very bad, and the women of like cuaraoter, and that it was spite work. The whole trouble grew out of a feud over politics. MANY ARRESTS MADE.

For a long time claims of the superiority of the domes tic shell have been urged, but in this nnllke the Instances of American ord nance, the resn'ts do not strs'.aln tie the representations of manufacturers. The test this week at Annapolis of these shells Is valuable only for Its develop ment of the weakness of American pro-j-ctllts snd their man! rest inferiority tn the foreign shells. At least this Is the conclusion justified by the report of the officers who conducted the test nt Annapolis. Thesrmor-plale test where Ihe Holtzer and Flrminy shells were used developed Indisputably the superiority of the former. Some allowance was made for the condition of the plates nn the second day's assault when the Flrminy pro jictllt'S were fired, and the deductions advanced were possible for contra diction. The opinion of the experts, however, secmetl to lie in favor of the lloltrer. This week's tests, according tn the official reports, do not alter this condition of merit. At the last test there wero presented for trial four sholls. tha Storling, tlio Redcmann-Tllford, the Cnrpsntor-Firth and the Holtzer. The target used was n compound plate 111 Inches In thick ness, nnd corresponded to the nrmor of the Minntonomah. Previous firing had rendered It somewhat untrustworthy as nn 1 fleet! ve target, but that faot made tha performances of the projectiles tha mora easy. The gun used wns a bIx Inch breech loading title, nnd the mitx 7.I0 of the gun was 203 feet from the tared. Tha powder charge was forty nine pounds, nnd tbu projectiles weighed each 100 pounds Tliu velocity at tlio n.uzrla was 2,020, nnd at tbo striking point 2,000. Tha same rclntlve condi tions of firing were supposed to govern the test, nnd the points uf Impact wore selected as nearly as possible with a view to equality of circumstance. This equality, the bonrd say, was obtained In all cases, tnva possibly In that of tha Ridoninnn-TIIford shell, where tha re tlttanco wns considerably less at the point of Impact than In tlio other three 00 res. The llrt round was with tliu Sterling projicWe, which ticnotrated the plato. The si ell broke up, nnd a portion of the bcfcd was greatly distorted. Six suifiice cracks were started nnd onu short circumferential crack, while the old cracks, results of a former assault, were opened. Tha second round was with the Reilemann-TIl ford shell. Like the Sterllne, It wns broken up nnd a portion of "tbo head distorted. It re mained In the plate. The Indont in the target was 5 Inches. The dlsturbtnces were minor, but tha board met the problem of the dlffuionces in resistance, and concluded that there was llttlo choice between the Redemann-Tilford uml the Sterling shells. The Cnrpenter-FItth sholl was used In the third round, the projectllo pene trating the plate until the point struck tbu wood backing, when It rebounded entire, and was picked up thirty feet from tlio target. Thashell on measure ment was found to be shortened 43-100 of nn Inch. A thin scale had bean pealed off the plate In two places anij. numerous cracK were ousorvcti. riecee of tha hard steel facu of the plutu in the shapo of a trapezium dropped from the top of the plato to the ground and a triangular piece, sixteen Inches across the top, was started. The Ilolt.tir shell was tired In the fourth round, and was found to have penetrated tbo plate. It remained in the backing, the base of the shell being 11 Inches from tbu face of the plato. Tha base showed no signs of Injury. There were nineteen short radial cracks, and a new radial crack to a former ten inch Impact was opened. The hard steel was started and bulged to the front In a number of places, but only a small portion fell to the ground. The experts who represented the Naval Ordnance iluroau at this test head the projectiles in the order of merit with the Holtter, according to the Firth the second place, snd declaring equality of performance for the Itle mann Til ford and Sterling.
