New York’s Future.
The control of the great railroad prop- I
erties ol the country appears to be pass
ing into the bands of New York capital
ists. At the rate at which New York is
absorbing railroad and steamship lines it
will not be many years beforo she will con
trol all oi them. Indeed,it would be diffi
cult new to point out a half dozen first
class railroads which she does not control.
Outside of the holdings of Gould, the
VanderDilts, C. P. Huntington and others
of her rich citizens not quite so well
known to fame, what Is there left?
A few months ago the greatest railroad
system of the South, the Central of Geor
gia, was controlled by those who live in
this Slate. Now It is controlled by New
Yorkers. For years Baltimore has been
proud of the fact that she and her citi
zens controlled one of the great railroad
systems of the country, the Baltimore
and Ohio. That system is now under
stood to have passed into the possession
of New York capitalists. The story is
that the 10,000 shares owned by the Gar
retts, the 32,000 owned by the city, and
the 17,000 owned by the Johns Hopkins
University, making a total of 80,000
shares—considerably more than a con
trolling interest—are to be transferred to
Mr. Albert Stilly and his friends, who con
trol the Richmond Terminal system.
As New York grows in population and
wealth this absorption of the great rail
road properties of the country will goon.
When u man becomes a millionaire in any
oi the cities outside of New York he is very
apt to take up his residence in the metrop
olis, because New York offers him better
opportunities than any other city lorhand
liag his money to advantage. He meets
other capitalists there, and with them
forms the combinations which are necos
| sary lor success in great undertakings, i
| Their accumulated wealth must be in- I
j vested, and what better investments are I
I there than railway, steamship and tele- j
graph Hues when they are intelligently
and honestly managed?
Very naturally the owners of railroads
ar.d steamship lines want to do ail they
esn for the city in which they live, and it
is probable that a loss is suffered some
times by New York capitalists in order to
benefit that city. This movement in
New Y'ork’s interest is certain to become
more marked from year io year, and it
cannot fail to assist greatly in her
growih. What the effect of this condition
of aif iirs will lie upon the other cities of
the country it is impossible to say. It
may not do them any damage except in a
few instances. They all have other re
sources than the railroads, the develop

Ihe Standard Oil Company.
It appears to ba extremely difficult to
get at the truth respecting transactions
which iu any way involve securities
which Wall street deals in. There have
been a great many stories published about
tho American Cotton Seed Oil Trust Com
pany and its affairs since it was stated
that Armour, the millionaire pork packer,
and some ot bis millionaire friends were
about to become competitors ot the Oil
Trust in the busiuess of manufacturing
cotton seed oil.
Oue of the stories was that Armour was
trying to bulldoze the Oil Trust to sell
him cotton seed oil at his own price, but
that be would find himself mistaken if he
thougnt he could scare that concern, be
cause It was backed by meu twenty times
richer than he was. It, was Incidentally
I mentioned that the Standard Oil Com
j pany, or at least the richest members of
I it. were the backers of the Oil Trust.
It. seems that the Standard Oil is not in
terested in the Oil Trust. Mr. Henry
Rogers, of the Standard Oil, Is quoted in
the New York Sun as saying that, that
| company is in no way interested in the
j Oil Trust. He statsd also that Mr. Flag-
I ier, of the Standard Oil, might hold a lit*
I tie of the Oil Trust stock, as an invest-
I ment, but that he was sure that no other
i member of the Standard Oil owned any
j of the stock.
Mr. Rogers also stated that the Stand
| ard Oil has no connection whatever with
j many other enterprises with which com
mon reportoonnects it. It is not engaged
in the cattle business in the West, and
has no interest in the Gas Improvement
Company of Philadelphia, the New York
Steam Company, the Cleveland Acid Com
pany and other companies which it Is
popularly supposed to control.
If Mr. Rogers is reported correctly, the
Standard Oil doe* notcover quite so much
territory as the public bas been led to be
lieve it does. It covers enough, however,
and is a big enough monopoly to make the
public tuink that it pulls plums out of a
good many pies.

SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 1887.
Minister Pendleton’s Arduous Du
Hon. George H. Pendleton, our Minis
ter to Germany, left for his post of duty
on Wednesday. When he returned to
this country a few weeks ago on a visit it
was believed to some extent that he bad
been called home to sucoeed Mr. M anning
as Secretary of the Treasury. Even so
late as a week ago it was published that
he had accepted tho place; that he would
hurry back to Berlin to wind up his af
fairs there, and be back in Washington
within ten days a'ter April 1 to take the
Secretaryship of the Treasury.
it seems pretty clear now that he is not
to have a place In tho Cabinet, it is not
improbable that he came home to see
what chance there was of getting a Cabi
net position. He doubtless would rather
be a part of the administration than a
government agent abroad. If he came
home with any such idea, however, he
must have been disabused of it very soon.
He likes bis ease most too well to man
age successlully a great department of
It seems, however, that he thinks he is
worked very hard at Berlin. To a re
porter, just before be started on his re
turn trip, he said that bis escape from
his “arduous duties” at the German
capital had afforded him an opportunity
to recuperate, and that he felt very much
invigorated by his trip. The general im
pression is that the duties of our minis
ters to foreign countries are not very
arduous, out perhaps this impression is
a mistaken one. Some misinformed Coa
gressmeo have gone so far within the
tho last year or two to suggest that the
expense of maintaining ministers and
their assistants at the capitals of other
governments might just as well be
avoided as not, since all the Important
business that this government transacts
with other governments is almost wholly
done by the State Department direct.
It would not be surprising it
about the hardest work that Mr. Pendle
ton and some others of our foreign minis
ters do is to find ways to pass the
time pleasantly while waiting for some
thing to do. To “kill time” and be happy
is not an easy matter, and perhaps Mr.
Pendleton was rkrht after all when ho
referred to hi3 “arduous duties.”
That joily old sea-dog, ex-Secretary of

most sagacious men of this day, conceived

His hook with $25,000 a year and Mr.

An Interesting political fight, is about
to take place in Rhode Island. Wfftmore,
the Governor, is unpopular with his par

prominent Republicans openly declare
that they will not support him. Blaine is
deeply interested in the fight, but it is al

that if he does he will be forced to declare

In some quarters at the North there is
an impression that the South is not sin
cere when sue declares that she wants
the animosities engendered by the war to
be forgotten. The impression is based
upon the South’s refusal to be silent un
der the attacks of bloody shirt Republi
cans. The booth is sincere in desiring a
complete reunion ol the country, but she
reserves the light to repel attacks like
those that have been mentioned. Any
other course would cause her to lose her
self-respect. When the attacks cease,

A BTOP.Y OF A KIS3.
tVliat a Woman was Afraid of and What.
JFVom the Chamber*’ Journal.
A Circassian was walking along one road
and a woman along another. The roads
Anally united into one, and reaching the
point of junction at thesame time they walked
on together. The man was carrying a large
iron kettle on his hack; in one hand beheld
the legs of a live chicken, in the olner a cane,
and he was leading a goat. Thev neared a
dark ravine. Said the woman: “I am afraid
to go through that ravine with you; it is a
lonely place, and you might overpower
me and kiss me bv force.” Said the man:
“How cun X possibly overpower you anu
kiss you by force when I have this great
iron kettle on my back, a cane in one hand, a
live chicken in the other, and am leading this
goat? 1 might as well be lied hand and f ot.”
“Yes,” replied the woman: ‘ but if you should
stick your cane in the ground and tie your
goat to it, and turn the kettle bottom-side up
and put thechicken under it. then yon might
wickedly kiss me in spite of my resistance.”
“Success to thv ingenuity, O woman!” said
the rejoicing tnau to himself; "i should never
uave ihoughl of this or similar expedients.”
And when they came to the ravine he stuck
his cane into the ground and l ied the goat to
it, aud gave the chickeu to the woman, say
ing: “Hold it while 1 cut some grass for the
goat;” and then—so runs the legend—lower
ing the kettle from his shoulders, he put the
fowl under it and wickedly' kissed the woman,
as she was afraid he would.
A Piucby Schoolmaster.
From the St. Lull* Reimblioan.
Justice Medan's court was the scene of a
lively scrimmage yesterday afternoon ana
blood was freely spittered over the benches,
wall and the Judged docket. The cause of
the commotion was the suit brought against
Mr H J. Klein, priDcibal of the Humboldt
*chool, bv Constable John H, Hieferl, charg
ing him with assaulting and striking hiss on
.t mi in, a l oy of iZ years, who was one of the
pupils. The office of ihe Juslice was crowded
with the school children, who had been sub
poenaed as witnesses, and tbe friendsof Hie
belligerents. The constable, a large, power
ful man. was in court early, but Mr. Klein
came in late with Attorney Haimnill, who
asked for a continuance until Saturday,
which the Justice granted.
The crowd was just leaving the room, and
Siefert and Klein were standing a few feet
apart, when a sudden rush occurred, and
siefert struck Klein a blow with hts fist on his
mouth and nose, drawing bUod. A general
scrimmage then ensued, in which lawyers,
police and bystanders took a band, and dur
ing the excitement the school teacher freed
him-elf from the crowd, and raising over Ills
head a stout hickory 7 slick, he look deliberate
aim for the constable’s face and brought it
down with terrific force, cutting open his
right cheek and leaving the marks of it from
his forehead to his chin. The constable then
made a rush for his antagonist, while a son
about 17 y ears of age was getting in some ter
rible blows on the ribs of tlie* school teacher.
Chief Ylerker, an officer, and Justice Chai
ienor theu took a hand in the fight, and, after
a hard tussle, succeeded in keeping the prin
cipals apart. The constable being deter
mined to get even with tne wiry school
teacher, w ho, though a much smaller man
seemed to be possessed of considerable
muscle, resisted all efforts to force him from
Hie office, and it was mainly through the
herculean ,-ffortsof his counsel, Henry Chal
leaor that he was ejected from the room.
Certainly .Wealthy lu Her Own Name.
/root the Wuekingt n Critic.
Saturday evening a gentleman, who thinks
he knows a witticism when it conies in his
way, went homo to his dinner after a visit lo
the court room, where he had been hearing
Mrs. Knimons give her testimony. He tolu
his wife where he had been, and she asked
him what he thought of the case.
“Well.” he said, “the woman is undoubtedly
crazy. She got off a joke that she laughed at
herself, hut nobody in the house caught on,
and I’ll be shot if 1 have been able to account
for lier laughing, except on the ground ot in
“W hat was it?”
“Why, her a'torncy, Mr. Harnett, said to
her; -l>r. Kemps ter testified that you stated
to him that you were quite well on; in fact,
was wealthy. Now, what have you to say
to that?’ ‘lt’sa fact. 1 did tell him I was
Wealthy; and I am.’ she answered, ‘in what
does your wealth consist?’asked Mr. U, 'ln
my name,’ she said, and theu she laughed ns
if she had saut someth mg very, very funov.
Now I'll leave it to vou il she isn’t slightly off,
I've been raying ‘Emmons.’ ’Emmons,’over
to myself ior the last two hours, and 1 fall to
see where ihc iatign comes in.”
H s wife looked at him full of pity and ten
"I’m so sorrv for you,” she said simply,
“Whv?” lie asked, warmly.
“Bccau e her name is’Weltha,’and yon
and all the court were so wonderfully wise
that you left the poor woman to enjoy her
pun all to herself.”

Op five peop'e who, on heir dying beds last

that the “confessors” could not possibly havo

managed to lasteu the flag to the boat, aDd it
was visible for some ten minutes, while
pandemonium ruled in the auditorium as the
freshmen cheered and the sophomores hissed.
Boycotting and outcasting are made
doubly oppressive to Hindoo women, and for
the most trifling reasons. A married woman
not putting the sindoor fa red powder) on the
parting of her hair is boycotted. In the coun
try, if a mother-in-law eats or lives lu the
house of her son-in-law before her daughter
has a child she will be at once boycotted. A
young married lady was boycotted for not
observing some ceremony at the birth of her
child. A man can regain bis caste by per
forming the expiatory rites, but an outcast
woman. esne< mlly If she lias broken away
from the zenana or associated with nou-Hlu
doos, is never taken back to ber caste.
At the time of the recent strike of the to

in Jersey City there were two pet cats in the
factory which were inseparable. One of

was over the striking cat went back with the
hands. Itrafused, however, to associate with
the faithful cat. The two mot by accident
a few days ago, on one of tbe floors of the
factory, and the cat that went out pitched
into the other cat and thrashed it. Now the

The. fascinations of the social life of the
American capital also threaten to supplant
the monopoly In that line hitherto enjoyed by
the capitals of Europe, particularly Paris,
Vienna and Rome, borne of the most promi
nent acquisitions to the social list of the past
season were the gentlemen of wealth who
were in the habit of taking their families to
Europe for the winter gayeties. Their ladies
have been captivated by the pleasures of the
season. Hereafter, instead of facing the dan
gers and discomforts of a ea voyage, Wash
ington will be their winter home. The
American capital will soon ho the resort of
all Americans who desire a pleasant season
of rational social gayety.

As goldsmiths and jewelers the Persians
are expert, and jewelry is by no means the
exclusive luxury of the rich. In the first
place it is cheap. The most skillful jewelers
are glad to work for two shillings a day and
the profit they can make on the very small
amount of solder they are permitted to use.
The Persian seldom buys his jewelry ready
made—he orders it. W tien the various pieces
have been castor cut out from metal supplied
bv the customer, they are brought to him for
inspection and carefully weighed. Then the
article is put together, either in the custom
er’s own house and under his eye, or under
the supervision of his servant. Then it is
again weighed, then chased and finished, tbe
filings and waste being collected and credited
to the customer.
On May 81, 1888, Marguerite Bogenval, of
Ortgny, France, went to sleep and has not
wakened since, nor so much as stirred a
finger. She has been kept alive by the ad
ministration of milk and highly concentrated
beef tea Despite the most careful attentions
of those watching her she is now emaciated
to an extreme degree and her hones are
piercing her skin. She lies perf ctlys ll and
rigid, her eyes closed and her teeth set fast
together. A peculiarity of the case is that in
raising one eyelid and allowing the light to
fall upon the eye a shudder is noticed, fol -
lowed oy an immediate towering of ike eye
lid, or an attempt to do so. Marguerite’s res
piration is perfectly normal in its regularity
anu her pulse though feeble is not much be
low tbe ordinary rate of beats.
Peter Shkllenbakgkr, of Hartville, 0.,
butchered a fat cow. After the animal had
been killed and bung up, and while engaged
in dressing her, he noticed a peculiar odor,
and began an Investigation, On opening the
stomach lie found within a butcher knife,
blade and handle about seven inches in
lengtn. The knife < uot only sharp, but
sharp pointed, and had wounded the coatings
of the stomach about tie region wneie the
point lav. The animal was in line condition,
and with the exception of once or twice in
tne last six mouths, when she refused her
food, nothing had been noticed to indicate
any hing wrong with her. The knife had
been missing since last September, at which
time, it Is snopoaed, it had been fed to the
cow with potato peelings and n!her kitohen
offal. It is a rather curious case.
A Nantucket correspondent of the Boston
Herald, has been reading the “Buies and
Regulations Governing the Police Force of
Nantucket.” and finds them amusing, par
ticularly Article 5 and Rule 6. Thu former
roads: “ItsliHll be the duty of the po l ice to
arrest any person found in an intoxicated
condition in any of the streets or lanes of the
town, and if he or she offers no re Istnnee
said person may be assisted home; if that is
too faraway, said person may be assisted
awav from the most thronged streets and
told to go uome three times, and if such Per
son refuses lo go home, he or she shall he
locked up and treated as provided in Rule s,”
Rule 6 ls: "Any per on found aa hereinbefore
provided, who is noisy or disorderly, shall be
arrested and locked up land dt‘charged as
soon as sober), three consecutive tunas, after
which com plaint shall lie made and pro-e

to (leal gently with die erring.

A discussion recently arose among some
prominent ladies of Washington and Balti

and solubility of Zonweiss
C Cream for the teeth,which wa
referred to Dr. E. S. Carroll
of Washington (Mrs. General

the leading Dentists of Balti
more, for whom the article
was analyzed by two well
known Chemists, Prof. J-
Morrison of Washington, and
Prof. P. B. Wilson of Balti
more, both of whom pro
nounced it soluble and free from anything
injurious to the teeth. Dr. Carroll says
it is the most perfect
dentifrice he has ever I
seen. Zonweiss is a white A Tryj
Cream, put up in a neat l\
i'ar, and applied to the ''X
irush with a celluloid CjL'SSf' y
