So alt tlio npentMurc Iii'triictcdtoorKUiilresocletics with that Mated nmtiiiK our people, to be known as African emigrants to o to Africa, the land of our auicstor. They wero top.iy(?l asu uuarauteo of their good intentions, the dollar tobuac ircdltcd to their paaKC, minus llftecn i cuts for Incidental expense. Jiuljje It. N. Til miin of this city was to rei elvuti ub Mily for tlio company, or. In other word, ncurc a subsidy on each dollar put In by iippllcanls to coor tlio remainder of the l'li-sato monov. Also, ho was to semra liy subsidy S.TO.OOO needed to start tlio uliime, together Willi tlio wilo of com pany stocks in $100 "hares, the money to mi in bank only to bo ucil in transport ing tociety nicinhcrs to Africa, and all moneys thus reallred aro In bank to-day. As faros I am aware, there is no delusion liciiiK practiced, and jiK as soon ns sub-f-ldy is raised, or S30,(KJO, the people will hall, mid our i-orporntlon counsel, .Ittdgo Til mux, is now ncgotlutliur, for us mid says It will suc i((d, notwithstanding false rumors to the contrary. Tlio company did not au thorize its aeeuts nor any ouo elso to demoralize labor, hut to organize with a view nt somo subsequent tlino to go to Africa not this year, next year, nor this month, nor next month: but all depended on Die. alc of stock, subsidy and S.TO.tXO, needier viith membership fees, mid when raVed all members would have duo notlco mid everything work In n systematic way, not iicll mell, as thcdcorgla papers seem to gHcit. If some one has been India T(it nml inaccurate in giving tlio information, tlio company is not to lilume. am a new member in tlio lompany. and I never understood that 1 was the absolute passage to Africa. I understood it to bo subsidized by tlio ride of stock, etc., and no one. is behu riitpMl ns far us 1 am aware, though tho money don't pats through niv hands, but I know of every dollar thnt has been re iclvcel, and know It is on deposit In tho lunik. Kvcry ono who has paid money, if they are iltplcacil, can riturn their rc i elpts and get their dollar, for there is no dc-ire to wrongfully hold it. Tlio coin- iimy will some time secure n subsidy, the UMjCO, and passengers, too, despite opjio fitinn mid Jtidascs. I beg you In fairness to tho company to publish this short and disjointed letter, hoping that tho truth may bo gleaned from It, ns tlio company don't wish to over up Its acts, for thev aro legitimate mid caiistaiuUcrutlny.

There is no visible reason to belie vo that Cj-aton is really rcsions!bIo for tho wrong which has been dono tho poor no Erccs now stranded and destitute in At lunta. As has been said before, Tut: CiiiTic thinks that tho swindle wascon 4tlvd hy white men, and that tho colored tutors In it aro merely dupes.

A in xmiiTS ago tho occupants of boxes in the New York Metropolitan Opcra-Houso wcro surprised by tlio ap-Is-aTntico of the following notice, printed vn cnrd-boardonil placed In each box: Jis, 15, 1801.

Tlicy did so, doubtless, n tho thorny that the audlenio might ho iiioio willing to stop talking If they wero mi piled with muslo that they cared to listen to. Dm trouble is, however, that the tort of troii e ono engages to Interpret Wagner Is not the sort of troupo thnt can inlcrprit Meyerbeer. In ouccajo they aro ( peeled to rcelto and intone; In tho other tiny aro compelled to sing. Thus tho Tcrfoiiunneo of "L'Afrlcalno" was do crlbcd in tho papers next mornlui; as Inning been unsatisfactory and inade quate, only two orthrcoof tho artists rc telvlng any sort of commendation.

Xcm l'ork Worltl. Arthur P. Gorinnu. J'rom the Xeio Tori. Alar. Senator Gorman, upon whom tho eyes of all Democrats aro now admiringly llxcd, on uccount of his masterly conduct of tho light ogalnsttho Force bill, is n gen tleman of CO, of medium sizo and oulct liinnucrs. His fuco Is smoothly shaven and is pale. Ho has largo and handsomo brown eyes, capablo of great expression. Dvcry day thnt tho Sennto sits lm walks to and from tho Capitol, unle-ss tho weather should 'be very stormy, indeed, His Washington homo Is on Rhode Island nvenue, near Seventeenth street. Thero nc stays most ot tno time when no Is not occupied with his Senatorial or social duties, surrounded by his wife, his daughters and his son, who Is about to enter Johns Hopkins university. Tho Senator's tnstes uro domestic and 'literary. Thero aro few better private libraries In Washington than his. Thnt ho should have been selected by all the Democrats In Congress as their leader In the battlo against the Republican attempt to rule this country by fraud and force is simply a tribute to tho illvino right of brains. Mr. Gorman isby no means asclf-asscrtivo man. On the contrary, ho is quiet and modest. Even in tho midst of tho battlo he does not make himself conspicuous. Yet his opponents realize that hohasallUio points atcommnnd, nnd that any error of theirs will bo seized ti pon at once and made tho most of ugninst them. As an orator Mr. Gorman is plain and perspicuous. He seems to have u horror of spread-eagleism, and prefers to mako his argument suc cinctly in tlio clearest and quietest way, and, having stated his case, to sit down. Senator Gorman has grown upon tho country by sheer force of merit. It was In 1881, as chairman of tho campaign committee of tho National Democratic Committee, that ho mado his national reputation as a great jiolltleal manager. In 1888 ho wns ulso of great service to his party, nnd ,lt Is not too much to say that to his effective conduct of tho campaign last fall the magnificent victory was largely one. -ir. uormiiu, in pcucci co-ncraiion with Congressional Campaign Chairman Flower, paid attention to every doubtful Congressional district in tho country, availing himself of the condition of public feeling ngalnst the McKlnley and tho Force bills, and using nil legltlmnto means to gain votes on those Issues.

Fiomtht llotton Tiaeellir, Thero is much speculation as to Gov ernor Hill's change of front on tho ques tion of candidacy for tho Presidency as revealed in his sudden willingness to be come Now York's United States Senator. Tho reason is iqion tho surface. Ho does not euro to be an unsuccessful Presidential candidate; a six-years' Senatorial chair Is much more congenial to him, und ho Is too keen a politician not to know that tho silver Issuo forced by the Now West and South mako it practically impossible to elect a Democratic Presidential candidate In 1M:!.

Secretary Tracy's assertion, mado In his lastrcpoit to tho President, that thoi' ci(! of the Navy Is steadily deteriorating, seems to have been abundantly verified In tholleiter case. Thn Secretary, who has given to the subject tho most careful nnd Intelligent consideration, declared In tho report nlluded to thnt tho system of pro motion or, rntlier, of non-promotion prevalent In tho Navy tended to produce nset of commanding ofllccrs who bv rea son of ago, ludlffercneo or loss of self respect, wero unfitted for tho responsi bilities of command. He pointed out tho fact that ofllecrs wero kept in subordlnato positions until Ihelr youth, their vljor, their enthusiasm nnd their ambition had left them. Hi'sliowcd thnt thoy lost heart, hope nml interest nnd degenoruted Into mcYc machine, robbed of tho vigor nnd the fervor thnt go to mnke elllclcney, so thnt nt Inst, when promotion came, It found them regnrdlcss of everything cvs upt the rnnk nnd pay Involved, nnd devoid of that ludellmiblo quality which makes men useful, Every aspect of tho Relter case suggests the idea that hero may be an Illustration of Secretary Tracy's proposition. Kept In a subordlnato position during many wenry years; pnsslngln drudgery nnd sub jection tlio time nt which his spirit was strongest nnd his faculties most active, Mr. Relter renched tho position of com uinmlcr only after ho hail become dis couraged. Indifferent nnd conventional. Under tho first lest ho failed. Accus tomed, through tho best yours of his life, to licicmlcnco and subordination, ho was unable to meet the stress of responsibility nnd the emergencies of a complication. Confronted with n dilemma, ho did not know how to overcomo it. Secretary Tiacy hns shown all this beyond tho hoi 13 of contradiction. No posslfilo view or the i'iipc leaves Commander Relter a shred of dignity. Ho did not even have tho courago to err with vigor. mis urings up 1110 qucMion: nut un der thu present system Is to become of the ;.(' of the Navy? 2C.it only are the lists gorged with men unlit for pro motion, but wo nro without the menus of purging them. Secretary Tracy has dono Ids part. He has reprimanded Com mander Relter nnd declared that his case Is disposed of. But how docs that allevi ate tho situation? Commander Relter Is still 011 tho active list, IIu still stands in tho way of younger nnd undoubtedly mom efficient men. Ho continues to block tho nvenues of promotion, Whv Is there no provision for such cases? Why is thero 110 way of retiring officers who me confessedly unlit for the responsibili ties of command? Hero Is n great overshadowing trouble. The lists aro cumbered In each grade wllh 111011 who do not deserve promotion nnd who cannot projwrly dischnrgo the duties of high places. They not only fail when subjected to emergency, but they remain after trial nnd condemnation, useless to the country and fatal obstacles In tho way of happier results. The service must bo rescued from theso sinister conditions. Some plan must bo devised for ridding tho pathway to pro motion of Inert and unworthy olllccrs. Wc aro constructing n great and powerful Navy. Wo must tako somo steps to secure for it n ptiiounel which will lit the mag nificent material on which the country is spending millions. The Mulling Pontlir. Tho latest trustworthy news about Popo Leo 2CI1I. who has again been represented ns In a dying condition by recent dis patches, Is to be found in the AVvu'o A'fA., n Milan paper, to which Its Rome cor respondent wrote December 23, 1800: The strength of tho Popo Is dally de creasing. Not that ho can bo said to bo suffering from any definite illness, still his life is ebbing away, slowly and Insen sibly. What keeps him up morn than anything elso is Ids energy und his will, still sufficiently strong and vigorous. But those who approach him nro sadly struck wiin an 1110 symptoms 01 aspecuy oouiiy dissolution. Tho Pope's voice has becomo thin so thin; his body, already lean and angular, has becomo almost transiiarent; (ho eyes only nro still vivacious and brilliant. Ho looks llko a shadow, "1111 'ombra," a spirit, mournful and sad, wandering through the grand ami superb solitude of tho Vatican. Perhaiis he is suffering over tho idea that ho has not dono for tho church as much as ho could or would have done. He had grand conceptions, vast schemes, and ho hud tho mind and heart to rcallzo them. But circumstances w cro stronger than he. Theso later years of his Pontificate havo not corresponded to all tho hopes which lie entertained in 1878; ho feels It himself nnd Is grieved ut it. Still, it was less through his fault than through thoso of others that his plans did not succeed. At any rate ho continues his receptions. He always has on his lips his habitual smile; he does notmlssa siuglo ceremony, and fulfills all thodutlcsof his high offlco. Howants to prove to others that ho Is still vigorous, and perhaps ho wants to provo it to himself. But nobody in the Vatican entertains any illusion in that respect. Extremely feoble aro tho tics which bind him to life, and no great forco will bo necessary to cut them off. Perhaps one morning, when nobody expects it. tho Pppe may bo found dead. Or perhaps during ono of the ceremonies which ho will attend, the old man will bo seen dropping his bead, novcr to lift It up again, upon the arm of tho holy chair, tho "scdla gcstatorla."

Congressman Allen of Mississippi regaled tho Clover Club lost week with somo amusing illustrations of tho qualities manifested by Mujor Moses I'. Handy when ho was in the Confederate service. Ho said that Handy was remarkably val orous of speech but equally inconstant In action; brave enough before battle, ho would not stand lire ho fled Inconti nently at sight of the Yankees. Finally the captain of tho company took Handy aside one day and said to him very sternly: "Handy, you come of a good family and I like you for many admlrablo qualities; you nre undoubtedly loyal to our cause, but you have not yet been known to stand In tlmo of action. Now, I havo made up my mind to put a stop to your absurd folly. To-morrow we shall cngago tho enemy across tho creek, nnd I propose to stand right beside you, pistols In hand, ami bco mat you cio your eiuty; lr you at tempt to run away I shall slioot you!"
