Some of the New York strikers will Rave strikes in their families soon if they don’t open the way for their wives to get a supply of coal. The ooal heavere strike has given the Brooklyn doctors a chance to get a little exercise. The shoveling of coal will doubtless do them good. A movement is on foot to open Vassar College to young men. The girls think it is rather tiresome to be cooped up in a great big building all alone. The railroad lawyers were never in such good humor as they are now.

The impression appears to prevail in "Washington that Senator Brown proposes to have the Ilayard-Jaokson correspon dence or know the reason why. When he starts out to get a thing he generally gets it. The craze for flats appears to be getting a foothold in Baltimore. That city and Philadelphia have ho much unoccupied territory and so much room in which to grow, it is rather remarkable that the former city does not stick to the small bouses as homes for those with small incomes. Peace at last reigns In St. Stephen’s Church. Father Colton has succeeded in raising the boycott placed upon it by the adherents of Dr. McGlynu.

Tbs Smart Aleck correspondents who have so long been talking about Secretary Manning's going out of the Cabinet, feet foremost, if ho didn’t Immediately resign, must now feel a little ashamed of them selves.

There is no reason, however, why Sa vannah shouldn’t rival Wilmington in this respect in a few years, Tbe direct way to Birmingham will soon be open, and then wood and iron can be laid down in Savannah as cheaply as in any city in the world. It has at last been explained why hon est, rough, bluff “Joe” McDonald, of Indiana, was not elected to the Senate from that State instead of Judge Turple. It was because three labor men wouldn’t vote lor McDonald. If the laboring men propose to boycott him ho will hardly do for a Presidential candidate, A boycott rules him out of the raon. Pierce M. B.

He hopes to go to Constantinople, where it is much wanner, but the present outlook is tbat he won’t getquito so warm nn i cozy a place as that. Mr. H. Walter*, of Baltimore, the Gen eral Manager of the Atlantic Coast line, at a meeting Friday nlgbtin New Y’ork of the executive ofliocraof the Pennsylvania and AUantlo Coast line'railroads, held for the purpose of making more ample accommodations for tbe Florida business, said that bis road, tbis Reason, is carry ing more passengers to Florida thitn ever before. In tbe course of bis talk he said: “There are rood botels now all over Flor ida, and tbe tourists distribute themselves through the State. Jacksonville may not be t as much of a rendezvous for win ter tourists as in former leats.” A Word About the Surplus. | The Republicans are doing their best to get rid of the surplus so there will be no excuse for reducing the tariff. During I the debate in the Senate a few days ago I Senator Allison said that he did not think that the surplus during the present I fiscal year would be much over $15,000,- 000. Senator Beck stated that it could not possibly be less than $90,000,000. It is probable that Senator Allison took | into consideration the dependent pensions bill, which, the New York Evening Post says, will take out of the Treasury fully $71,000,000 a year, and also the bill to re i move the limit irom the arrears of pen sions act, which will oost the country i $'220,000,000, the greater part of which will be required very Boon after tne bill is passed. There Is still hope that the President will veto the dependent pensions bill, and that Congress will not pass the bill re moving the limit from the arrears act. Both parties, however, voted for the bill which now awaits his signature, and if he proposes to do what ne thinks will be for the best interests of his party he may make the mistake of signing it. It is safe to say that neither party in Congress thinks the bill a just one. The Republicans proposed It, hoping the Democrats would deteat it, and thereby lose popularity with the soldier element. The Democrats were afraid to oppose it for party reasons. Tbs Northern Demo crats, particularly, felt that to vote against it would be to vote for their own defeat. Unless, therefore, the Presidout has the courage to veto It, the Democratic party will have the credit of saddling a burden of about $75,000,000 a year on the country. If this bill becomes a lawjthe number of our pensioners will be nearly double the number of soldiers in the German army, and the burden imposed upon the country to sutiport them will boa third greater than the German army imposes upon Germany. If, in addition to this bill, Senator Ingalls gets the bill remov ing the limit from the arrears act passed, there will not be much occasion for talk ing about reducing t,ne revenue. There will not be enough surplus revenue to begin the work of fortifying the coast or to build a navy. Tho North will get nearly all the bene fit o! this outrageous pension legislation because the money is distributed there. It almost alone, also, is benefited by tbe present high tariff, because the great monopolies which protection has built up are there. The South, which has to con tribute a very large share of tbe pension money, gets little or no benefit from the tariff, and is not made any richer bv the millions distributed in pensions. And, notwithstanding this bad treatment, it cannot get a small pittance to open its harbors to commerce. A Louisiana Story. A “leading” Republican of Louisiana 1 is reported, in the Washington corres pondenceof the New York World, to have said in that •city a day or two azo that if Mr. Cleveland is renominated the Repub lican* will carry that State. It is worthy of notice that the “leading” Re publican is not mentioned by name, which gives room lor doubting that any respon sible Louisiana Republican ever made any such statement. According to the al leged “leading” Republican there is a very large faction of anti-administration Democrats in Louisiana, who are ready to join with the Republicans to defeat Mr. Cleveland. Assuming that there are a great many dissatisfied Democrats in Louisiana— and the chanoes are tbe number is limited to those who (ailed to get an oflioe—what ‘would they gain by giving the State to the Republicans, or by the election of a Republican President? It is foliy to sup pose that Democrats, because they do not line the nominee of tbeir own party, will help to put the Republican party into power, unless they have u very strong reason tor doing so. If there are any Democrats in Louisiana who are thinking of acting with the Republicans, either secretly or openly, it must be be cause they intend eventually to ally them selves with that party. It is safe to assume, however, that If there are any the number is not large. Asa matter of fact there is no organized Republican party in Louisiana. The old leaders are either dead or have given up politics torever, and no now leaders havo taken their places. Tne party oould not be organized again as it once was, even if good leaders could be found, because tne negroes have had all the politics they want. They have become wise enough to know that the Republican party was never any benefit to them; that it helped to enrioh a few white and black men, but that to the great mass of black voters it was a positive injury. No, there is no organized Republican party in Louisiana, and tnere is no pros pect that there will be very soon, if ever. The story which the World’s corres pondent tells, however, sounds like many other stories furnished by alleged “leading” Louisiana Republicans which have found their way into print. The correspondent evidently knows those Re publicans pretty well. It in gratifying that train robbers do not always meet with succcsp. On last Sunday night a bold attempt was mads to rob the express train on the Wabash railway, between J’hilo and Tolono, In Illinois, .lack Tyrrell, wno was the on ginecr of the train, has the reputation of being ouo of the bravest locomotive engi neers in the West. He was just about to settle himself for a little rest, when, look ing back, he saw three well dressed young men coming toward him oror the tender. They advanced to ths cab and per emptorily ordered the fireman to hold up his hands, and the engineer to stop tho train, as they wore going through the ex press car, which usually carries a rich load of through currency packages. Tell ing them that he would comply with their older Tyrrell opened his tool chest, and grasping a revolver leveled it at them. They realised that be uad the drop on them, uud they were ready to obey, In stead of giving orders. The train was running rapidly and Tyrrell made them jump off. if they were hurt by their jump their associates assisted them in getting away, as no traces of them were discovered by u searching party. The charge that Senator Miller, ol Hew York, makes, that Mr. Ulscock was elected to the Senate by means of boodle, ought to be investigated.

There appears to be a settled determi ! nation in Washington to fill the places oc cupied by Secretary Manning and Treas urer Jordan before those gentlemen va cate them. At least a dozen men have | been named lor eaca ulace, and yet no body knowo what the President’s inten tions are with regard to them. It is stated now, with a detrree of posi tiveness that is amusing, that George H. Pendleton, Minister to Germany, is to succeed Mr. Manning, and that Mr. E. O. Graves Is to succeed Mr. Jordan. The only reason, perhaps, that these gentle men are mentioned in connection with these important offices is that they are both civil service reformers. Mr, Pen dleton is tbe lather of the pres ent civil service law, and Mr. Graves, who is a Republican, has al ways strongly favored it. It is asserted that Mr. Pendleton was called home tor the purpose of taking the Treasury port folio. If he should become Mr. Man ning’s successor, it is probable that lie would not exert himself to make Mr. Bayard’s position in the Cabinet a pleas ant one. There is an impression that he wanted to be Minister to England, but that Mr. Bayard decided against him. He oould not understand how Mr. Bayard, who had been his warm personal friend, and his colleague in the Senate, could prefer the New England lawyer to bun. Mr. Graves Is at present Superinten dent of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. He was transferred to that office from the Treasurer’s office, where he was the chief assistant. There are no good reasons, however, for thinking'tLat Mr. Pendleton will be made Secretary ot the Treasury, or that Mr. Graves will be made Treasurer. Tnere will be other prominent men mentioned for these offices, doubtless, before there are any changes in them. Miss Van Zandt says that jn marrying the Anarchist, Spies, she lollowed the voice of her heart, and she thinks that good people all over the country ought to applaud her. She says: “Had I married an old invalid debauchee with great riches those ‘moral’ gentlemen wno assail me now would have lauded me to the skies, and many of my Christian sisters and brethren would have said to their sons and daughters,‘very commendable; a sensible girl,’ and those who Know me personally, *1 have always thought her so sweet.’ I prefer the censure of those ‘moral’ people, who, it seems, cannot comprehend a love match, doubly strong by a similarity of mental tastes and pur suits as ours is, to their approval.’’ Miss Van Zandt makes the mistake ot suppos ing that her choice was limited to spies and “an old invalid debauchee with great riches.” It is even wituin the bounds of probability, however, that she will wish that she had waited for the debauchee. • BRIGHT BITS.

A distinguished member of the profession told me the following story the other day of a brother comedian. William J. Florence: Florence, in his younger days, was a great hpe. ch-maker. On the least provocation he would rush before the curtain and hurl ex pressions of gratitude and promises of a speedy return at the backs of the retreating audience. One evening, when he was doing one-mght stands on the New England cir cuit. a few injudicious auditors were bold enough to applaud al the fall of the curtain on the last act. Florence darted from behind and bowed to the audience. “Ladies and gentlemen,” he said, “or fel low-townsmen, a.i I may call you. I thank you. Though you may not be’ acquainted with tne fact, it wa in this old town of New Haven that 1 lived as a boy. Under tho shade of the c liege elms and by the side of the old court house I spent the happiest days of my life. I see many familiar faces before me to night who were boys with me then. 1 have met with some approbation in my life, but nowhere is it more sweet ami more dear tlmn in this, my native town. To-day as i walked the streets ” At this point a gentleman in front w his pered in a very loud voice: “Mr. Florence, this isn’t New Haven; it’s Hartford.” A Slnfeu ar Russian Du'dling Case. Frotn Va o ity Fair. Avery singular trial, arising out of a duel, took place with closed doors at St, Peters burg last week. A Captain of the Czar’s Body Guard named Pamntine, met two years ago at a watering plae • in the Caucasus the family of Gen. Lazareff. whose name may be remembered as one of the Kussian command ers in Asia Minor during the war with Tur key. Capt. Panintine fell deeply 111 Jove with one of the General’s daughters, and was af fianced to her before the season was over. But in the end he jilted her and married some one else. This was regarded as such an insult by the Lazareff family that one of the young lady's brothers challenged < apt. Panintine, and killed him. The matter being referred to the Caar. he ordered it to fie tried in accordance 1 with the Russian law, which provides tfiat. if the person who has provoked his adversary to fight kills the latter, he shall be impris oned for six vears ami *ight months; but that if tbe challenger is killed bv the challenged, the latter shall be imprisoned for only two yesrs and six months. The interesting part in this case was to know which of the two parties should be considered to have provoked tne duel; and as i. was eventually decided in M. La/aretrs favor, he escaped with the lesser pcfnalty. The Czar. Washington Letter to the Boston Traveller. Gen. Alfred Pleasanton was in a communi cative mood to-night. He sat m the reading room of Willard’s, and began to draw stories from the vast storehouse of his experience. The correspondent asked him if the reports of the t znr’r. drunkenness were true, and the General replied: *1 knew the Czar very well when 1 was in Russia, ami these reports are all lies made out of whole cloth. They are concocted for the readers or the Engli-h newspapers, for you know that a Briton is willing to believe almost anything bad about a Russian. Americans ought to place no con fidence in such stories.

Over 20,000 members of the order have to submit to his will aud de cisions. lie can suspend a branch or branches without number by the turn of his pen; in fact, lie cou and suspend the whole order. It is outrageous to think that any one man should have such power vested in him. But the next Supreme Council, w hich meets in Chicago in May. will change all this, as it will also abo ish the State < ouncil, which has been such a burdensome and expensive institution for the accomplishment of nothing.” Pension agents, pension sharks, they are sometimes, aud more properly, called, have already flooded the country with circulars addressed to the Mexican war veterans. They want to be employed to push the new pension claims, but the Mexican veterans will best help themselves by letting the agents alone. As soon as the Commissioner of Pen sions is ready to take up these claims he will issue a circular giving the necessary instruc tion to all claimants, and there will be no need for the intervention of a pens<on attor ney at Washington. No attornev can hurry the allowance in the least, and when the necessary evidence is put in shape bv the local attorney of a claimant, there will be nothing more to do that cannot be cheerfully done by his representative in Congress. The Roman soldiers, who built such won derful roads, and carried a weight of armor i and luggage that would crush the average farm hand, lived on coar e brown bread and sour wine. They were temperate in diet, reg u'ar and constant in exercise. The Spanish works every day. and dances half tlie night, vet eats only his black bread, onion and watermelon. The Smyrna porter eats only a little fruit and Home olives; he eats no beef, pork or mutton; yet he walks off with h:s 800 pounds. The coolie, fed on rice, is more active, andean endure more than the negro fed on fat meat. The heavy work of the world is not done by men who oat the great est quantity. The fastest and longest-r. inded hors is not the biggest eater. Moderation in diet seems to be tiie prerequisite for endur ance, “It is well known,” says the London Athe nseuni, “that the two persons for whom Lord Byron had the greatest respect, aud whose aavice in literary and other matters he was willing to follow, were William Gifford and Walter Scott. In 1813 h ' wrote to Mr. Mur ray that ‘the kindest letter lie had ever re ceived m all his life’ wh* from Nlr. Gifford. That letter lias recently been discovered among the papers of Lady Byron, and bv per mission of Lord Wentworth will be published in the second number of Murray’s Magazine along with one from Sir Walter ecott full of admirable advice; but the leading feature iu •Byroniana,’No. 2, is a copy of verses, tne last Lord Byron ever wrote, found after hi* death among bis papers at Missoionghi,which have never yet seen the light—indeed, none of these Byroniana fragments have ever been seen by uuy former editor.” The Times of India tells the following story to show how worse than useless are the bayo nets now used in the British army: An Eng lish soldier in Lucknow was on sentry near the quartermaster’s stores, where, under the veranda, a number of bub s, containing shirts, socks, etc , were placed. It appears that some persons were attempting to take away one of the b iles undor cover of the darkness, but, the sentry coming upon them, they de camped, not, however, before the sentry had churged them, and, giving a severe thrust with his bayonet, lie not one of the thieves, but a hale containing 500 pairs of socks, lie then loaded and tired off’ his riffe, and on the non-commissioned officer of the guard, along with an escort, coming up to as certain what wnsttie matter they found the •entry*! bayonet was quite as luquisitfve as they were, for the point of it was looking •low n the muzzle of the rifle to see where the bullet had come from. Mr. Dumont, of IndlanA, in a speech which be made in tbo House of Representatives, narrated this anecdote: There was pending at one time before a State Circuit Judge sixty rates, all between the sumo partlos, and In nil respects alike, except in the amount of the judgments that had been rendered t*y the court below. They wore ail cases lti noire fa las upon Judgments of an Inferior court, not depending upon proof, but to be decided on demurrer upon the records. The judge was pressed with other cases and for time, and a decision wiim insisted on by not h parlies. So in Ins dilemma lie divided the records into two piles, taking them just us they came, ns you would deal a pack of cards, thirty in one pile and thirty lu the other, and decided, one pile in favor of the plaintiff and thootlieri i>o in favor of the defendant. In nil the case* an appeal was taken from the Circuit to the Su preme ( ourt of the Si ate, and after mature consideration (of course the consideration was mature) ttie judgment or the circuit Court was affirmed In each and All the sixty oahos, and the affirming opinions were ir-- nouneed by a’l who read them a tbo pcricc tioti of huumu reason.
