A Republican State Convention is hereby called to meet at the Hyperion theater in the city of New Haven on the lSth day of May, 1888. at 8 o'clock ?. m. for the purpose of electing four delegates and oar alternates from the State of Connecticut to the National Republican Convention to be held at Chicago, June 19, 18S8, to appoint a State Central Committee and do any other business proper to come before said Convention. The Republican electors of each town, uniting with all other elec tors who believe in the avowed principles of the Republican party, are requested to send to said Convention, such number of delegates as will be equal to twice the number of members they are entitled to have in the House of Representatives in this State to such town. By the rules adopted at the last State Convention, no delegate to the Nation al Convention or member of the State Central Committee can be appointed, nor platform adopted, before 10 o'clock a. m. of Wednesday, May 16. All primaries for naming delegates must be held at least five days before the meeting of the Conven tion; at such primaries Town Committee must be chosen to hold their positions until others are chosen in 1890. Vacancies in any delegation can only be filled by an appointment In writing signed by the other delegate or delegates from such town, and only with a legal voter residing in the town where the vacancy occurs.

The business of the conven tion will be to elect two delegates and two alter nates to the Republican National convention at Chicago, June 19th. Each town is entitled to the same number of delegates as to the State conven tion, and they may be the same men if the towns electing them so desire and direct. C. A. Baldwin, S- r?5 David B. Hamilton, Committee. THE BUTT OH POTATOES. The Mills bill admits "all edible roots'' free of duty. Potatoes are now subject to a specific duty of fifteen cents per bushel. Daring .recent years foreign dealers have found it profitable to send potatoes here despite the tariff of fifteen cents. Naturally under these circumstances potato growers in this csuntry don't want the duty taken off of their product. They ask, instead, that it be increased to twenty-fire cents a bushel. The argument made in favor of this in crease is a forcible one. It is asserted that the duty on potatoes, which at times can be brought hither in ballast in almost unlimited quantities, should be large enough to in sure a fair defense to farmers near the sea board and border. The farmer has to pay American, not foreign workers, to employ capable and independent workers and not mere slaves of the soil. Whenever there is a surplus in any other land fronting on the Atlantic, or when vessels coming to onr ports find no paying cargoes, the farmer is likely to find his only markets gorged with for eign supplies, thrust upon buyers at less than the bare cost of prodnction here. Even when he loads his products for market, he cannot know that a ship may not arrive the same day with such quantities as to tjlut the market for a week. In one month last November there were imported 773,000 bushels of potatoes, averaging lees than 31 cents per bushel. In four days of January the imports at New York alone were 149, 000 bushels, from Scotland 68,000, from Holland, Denmark and Germany 13,000, and from other distant countries. Among such killing competition it is no wonder that American market gardeners do not thrive, and supplies for eastern cities and manufac turing centers are always liable to be scarce and dear, while agriculture is g etting starved oat of seaboard States. It is no wonder that the four States of New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania each raised fewer potatoes than they did twenty-eight ysars ago; in 1859 their product was 44, 139,700 bushels, in 1885 only 39,576,000, and la .1887 about the same. If potatoes are put on the free list then 25 to 30 cents is the best price onr farmers oan expect to realize under the most favorable circumstances. As the farmers of this country cannot afford to raise potatoes for less than fifty cents a bushel, the prospect of having the duty taken off is not a very cheering one. EDITORIAL NOTES. Some are expecting to sea the great French copper syndicate collapse. If the truth is told about its operations it ought to. The statement of the April fire loss in the United States and Canada shows a slight im provement. In 1887 the loss in that month amounted to $11,750,000. This year it is $11,326,350. Vermont's maple sasar crOD this SDrintr is in quantity and in quality above the average owing to recently introduced improvements in its manufacture. The yield is estimated at 15,000,000 pounds. Governor Swineford ef Alaska again attacks the performances of the Alaska Commercial company. By and by perhaps the govern ment will pay some attention to this matter. If Governor Swineford knows what he is talking about an investigation is very much needed. There are many ways of explaining the evil that is in the world. There is a prominent lady in Philadelphia who has written for pri vate circulation a little social tract, in which she takes the view that very little mischief would happen in the world that does happen if men would stay home evenings with their wives. Intemperance, crime, divorce and even political corruption she attributes to this cause. The agricultural distress in England is il lustrated by a letter from a Bedfordshire clergyman to the London Times, who says that the few men whom the farmers are able to hire receive on an average nine shillings, or $2.25 a week, subject to deduotion for days when work is interrupted by stormy weather. He says that ha has assisted two strong young men to emigrate who had been earning from four shillings and sixpence ta five shillings per week, with deductions for all time lost on account ef bad weather. Some of the faith surers don't appear to have much faith in their own care. A regu lar physician ef Boston states that the most prominent Christian scientist "of one of the six largest cities of Massachusetts" was re cently taken ill with a Blight ailment. She struggled along by herself for a few days and then, pretty well alarmed, called for him to attend her, and she gratefully and willingly took all the medicine he prescribed. And the Springfield Union says that there is a physi cian in Springfield who has more than once been called upon to care the complaints of Mrs. Eddy, the very high priestess of so called Christian science. Lieutenant M. E. Hall, U.S.N., has been experimenting with an auto-mobile torpedo invented by himself at the torpedo station in Newport, K.I. The torpedo, which is made of aluminum brass, presents Borne novel features. The diving rudder with the intri cate mechanism common in fish torpedoes is done away with. The flask containing the motive power occupies eight feet of the length ef the torpedo, which is twelve feet long. The engine employed, owing to the novel way of mounting it and its antomatio character, utilizes the full expansive force of the compressed air. In the runs that have been made the torpedo developed high speed, although only one-third of the maximum pressure was carried, and the diving service has answered its purpose as far as it has been tested. Some farther trials are to be made shortly. The Monde de la Science describes a fao , tery which is said to be flourishing at St. Denis, France. Within its walls human skeletons are "made" in the following man ner: The largest room of the building is filled with enormous kettles in which the bones of the corpses are boiled till all the flesh is sep arated from them. The skulls are prepared separately and in the most careful manner. One way of preparing the skulls of children and yonng people is to fill the hollow where the brains were situated with peas and then let the latter swell in wafer, .which causes even the most delicately joined bones to sep arate without being injured. After all the bones have been carefully washed they are bleached either by chloral or by exposure to the sun, and are then joined in another de partment of the factory and made flexible by means of brass wires. Most of the corpses whose bones are utilized are said to be brought from hospitals, prisons and dissect ing rooms, and the latest Busso-Tnrkish war is said to have brought much "material" to the factory. IN OTHEB LAN JDS. The Southern Ceast of Cuba A JLazy and Dreamful Trip Alans the Shores Beantlfnl Pictures of Tropical Life The Revolution- Bel Quemado A Terrible Chapter In the Canntrr's . History . Tbikidad, Cuba,- April 30. To the Editor of the Jodbnal and Courier: . The city ef Cienfaegos on the southern coast of Cuba, , while possessing many of those quaint features in scene and architec ture which render Havana so fascinating to the stranger, is so bright and pleasing with al, and so sunny and warm in its opulent so cial and business activities, that one almost feels, after knowing it, that there is some hope for Cuba, even with its corse of Span ish misrule fastened like a monstrous devil fish upon it. To the north, east and west, for a great distance behind it, the country gradually and almost imperceptibly rises to wards the central mountain range of the is land, and upon this fair slope are hundreds of the richest plantations in Cuba. Forest, vale, ranch, plantation succeed each other in every direction; the luxuriance of nature is indescribable; and with American methods of cultivation and American thrift to house the gains, the whole vast region would at once become a garden of transcendent beau ty and a storehouse of incalculable wealth. The commercial importance of the city is by no means insignificant. Large exports are made of sugar, tobacco, cattle, tallow, hides beeswax and enormous shipments of the val uable Cuban woods such as mahogany and cedar. Millions of dollars of American cap ital are invested here. Many of the largest sugar plantations are owned and operated by capitalists in Boston, New York and Phila delphia; and it is not unusual to find the handsomest structures of the really beauti ful city owned by Americans, while a large number of the most important commercial houses owe their prestige to American mon ey and the association of American business men. Cienfaegos cannot but soon rival Ha vana in business importance, and should there be a successful completion of a canal across the isthmus I venture the prediction that here will be found in a quarter of a cen tury the largest, richest and most brilliant city of America sooth of New Orleans. The cathedral and plaza at Cienfuegos are stri kingly beautifnl, and the building occupied by its leading club, the "Circulo .de Instruc cion y recreo el Liceo," on the Calle de San ta Cruz, formerly a wealthy Cuban's rest dence, is Oriental in design, appointments and embellishments. The harbor is one of the finest in the world. It is named Bahia (bay) Jagua, from the jagua tree which grows profusely in this part of the island. The jagua resembles our American locust, though its leaves are more nearly like those of the poplar. It bears a fruit something like the sweet zapota in appearance, bat is only edi ble by swine, which fatten upon it as rapidly as upon corn. The bay is five leagues in di- Pameter; and as we steamed over it en route for Trinidad, some eighty miles by sea to the east, the picture of the splendid city encir cling the white shore, and brilliant in its odd colorings of pink, blue and yellow, backed by far-reaohing waves of luxuriant foliage, was one which the Mediterranean's shores cannot surpass. The harbor entrance is most interesting. It follows the sea in sinuous winding, hogging a bold ocean bluff, upon whioh looms a grim fort of Moorish design; and just within, along the debouching shore, are delightful quintas and villas, brilliant hoed bathing boxes and numberless quaint fishers' cabins, above which are endless flow ers end tropical verdure. AXOSO TI1K SOUTHERN COAST. Our trip along the southern coast of Cuba was a lazy and dreamful one. Underneath great awnings perhaps half a hundred pas sengers, the larger number of pare Castillian or the darker-hued mixed Cuban types, lolled the whole day long in languid siesta. Bat to me and my companion, whose eyes kindled with delight as olden scenes were discovered, or suffused with tears as olden memories of the brave and bitter struggle for the liberty of his loved land were awakened, the passage was replete with interest. For the whole distance we were never a league, and often within hailing distance, from these witching shores. Something as upon the great Baha ma banks, the coralline sea-bed formation gives wonderful color to the water. Here it is as milk. There it has the glowing flash of the opal. Again we cross a bit of green outrivalling the palest shades of the eme rald. Now oar course is where the blae of the sea deepens to crimson-tinted purple. And more than onee we glided through still waters like amber, where seaward and shore ward there swept over hidden coral reefs mile-long surfs high and stately like massed columns of milk-white steeds" decked with snowy plnmes. Myriads of sea-gulls ciroled about us lazily, uttering their half-whistled moanings; and at mid-day even the sleepy Cubans were roused into activity by the hov ering of one of those mammoth birds of the sea, the albatross, or "man-of-war" as the sailors have it, which followed for fully a half hour in majestio oirclings, apparently without a single movement of its tremendous wings. Soon the San Joan river was seen. At its mouth great breakers were tossed back and forth over coral reefs which here and there rose in black, white or mottled ledges and pinnacles to the height pf an hundred feet. At the peaceful shore-edge beyond, on either side of the river month, inconoeivably large turtles lay Banning themselves upon ripple-washed rocks, occasionally moving in awkward lethargy, or, as if determined on sudden mission, plunging from sight into the depths below. Here and there, in barren tide-washed spaces of shore, there suddenly emerged from the jungles behind herds of wild hogs, which, catohing sight of the pass ing steamer, with exoited gyrations and ea vortings expressed their astonishment in snortings and sharp barking, not unlike those of the American coyote, and with curved backs and wild jumpings into the air on all-fours, precipitately disappeared. Some fishers' huts of palmetto and palm were set here and there beneath lofty trees; and glimpses were caught far up the stream among weird erags and cliffs" of monteros vine-bowered homes, picturesque as ever peeped from heights in the. Tyrol. Behind 1 1 -U I ,. . .' . ." i - i . , i an una, bio&- uii bier, bmjuu almost impenetra ble forests, now forever haunted by the wraiths of uncounted thousands, Spanish and Cuban foes, who fell in the awful con flict whioh mast come again and again until Spanish barbarism is swept from Cuba; while beyond, looming vast and high in this strange tropical air as another Iseran is the peak ef Potrellio, six thousand feet high, the loftiest elevation in Cuba save Mount Turquino. CASILDO. Toward evening we steamed up the canal from the sea to Casilio, the little outer port of Trinidad, one of the oldest cities of Cuba, and in former times even surpassing in rioh es and splendor Havana in her most famous decades of opulence. Casildo was never but an entrepot for Trinidad, the latter being built npon a splendid inland harbor; but hers are seme of the greatest warehouses and wharves in Cuba. Before the revolution of '68, whioh almost destroyed the wealth and even resources of this inconceivably rich southern coast country, and left its splendid cities effortless and silent, these vast wharves and almacens must have presented most stir ring scenes, stored as they constantly were with millions upon millions of dollars' worth of sugar, molasses, tobacco and especially coffee, as Trinidad at that time was the greatest single coffee metropolis of the world. Deserted as they are to-day, no one can pass them without interest and even amazement at their area and ponderous strength. They are built of the famous Cu ban wood, much resembling lignum vitas, called guibrahaca, literally "axe-breaker" on account of the difficulty found in working upon it with any edged tools. The labor re quired in fashioning these guibrahaca piers is simply incalculable; and they could only have been constructed nnder a system of slavery that eon n ted superhuman toil as nothing. The bulkheads and cappings are of mahogany; and there are enough solid mahogany timbers in these wharves, if laid down in New York at their marketable value, to alone purchase the land and properties of the most valuable block on Broadway; while bolts of Bolid copper, from six to ten feet long, as thick as your wrist, with huge brass neaos, are as ireqnenc as rusty iron spikes in any American seaport pier. Here at Casildo are also a few quaint flower-embowered vil las along the sea, and huge banos or bathing places where sharks and other monsters of these tropic deeps are fenced out bv hnee palmetto piling, and light, dainty roofs are made or tne brown ana puce palmetto leaves. TBIKIDAD. Bat three miles distant inland over a queer little railway we came to Trinidad. The al most land-locked bay at its edge is called Masio. it is a nobis naroor reaninnsr but slight engineering and expenditure to out a ship channel to the sea through the soft and level intervening coral. That done, the na vies and shipping of the world conld lie se curely at anchor in Bahia Masio, for it is larger and finer than any other , of the splen did Cuban harbors, ' And here again, should Cuba's present desperate dolor give the is land to the United States, to which it must eventually belong, Amerioan capital and en terprise would find a veritable Eldorado. The anoient glories of Trinidad seem beyond belief. But the magnificence of her deserted structures of to-day attest their former real ity. Many of them are palaces beside which the storied edifices of the Biviera seem plain and commonplace. In no part of the habi table globe is there such an equable, health ful and entrancing climate. Men and women live here until far past a century in age. Bising gradually from these enchanted shores, the city, spread downward like a gleaming eatin fan from the apex of a pic turesque neicnt, is one vast garden broken only by splendid edifice, dreamful plaza and quaint old fountains. To the east sweeps the splendid bay. To the south stretches the great sea, from which pleas ant breezes endlessly come. To the west vast reaches of forest, and again the sea. Behind, as ii in terrace on terrace, forests, vales of indescribable luxuriance, and a score of miles away the famous Valle del Agnacate, two thousand feet above the sea, whose grand upland sweep reaches to picturesque foot-hills, and be yond the grim monntains the Andes of Cuba blue-black in the wondrous tropic air. THE COFFEE LANDS. In this glorious region lie the coffee lands of Cuba. Only a quarter of a cen tury ago the fabulous riches derived from them gave the brilliant city of Trinidad the name of "Paris Chiquito" "the little Paris." There were nearly three hundred of these magnificent plantations. The smallest was one hundred cabellerias in ex tent. A cabelleria is thirty-three and one third acres of land. The larger contained from five hundred to one thousand cabel lerias, or from about seventeen thousand to about thirty-four thousand acres. And this was exclusive of hundreds of interven ing raspaureros, or little plantations where cane syrup was made and stirred with ajonjoli, or oily broken corn, ' into the toothsome raspadura cakes all Cubans dear ly love. The ancient city with its former princely masters; the surroundings eloquent with unequaled natural beauty; the old slave times when every plantation had its palace and its hordes of half-naked African serfs; have left the locality rife with weird legends and fearful tales, far surpassing in horrible memories that pandemonium of aw ful imagery depicted in Hueo's Bue-Jarals. Here is one told by my companion who was a cnild nere during the occurrences narrated. as we sat in La Yijia, the quaint old signal evabiuii ujuu Lurj ueigiiia auuve cue city. THE REVOL-UTIOIJ DEL QUEMADO. The efforts of the English government to suppress the Spanish slave trade, as is gene rally Deuevea in uuDa tnrougn the probably unauthorized promptings of the English consul-general at Havana, Drought about the terrible uprising of the blacks in and about Trinidad, known as the Revolution del Qae mado, in 1833. Four English speaking ne groes were Drougnt nere from jamaico, who fomented discord and organized this revolu tion. The plan of the blacks was to arm themselves as best they might, and on Holy Thursday of that year, while vigilance was relaxed, and the white forces at the planta tions were weakened by the general attend ance of the planters and their families upon the festivities and processions in Trinidad, rise at noon of that day, kill every male white left upon the plantations and then march npon Trinidad, where their black brethren would join them in extermination of all whites and mestizo property owners. An absolute extinction of all males save ne groes in this portion of the island was sworn; and only for a providential circumstance would have been consummated. The white women were to be saved for wives of the leaders of the thirty thousand -blacks en gaged in the massacre. Copinge, a Spanish colonel, was the Governor of Trinidad. In his household was a beautiful mulatto slave girl, Malibran, whose lover, a desperate black named Cangalito, one of the leaders of the insurrection, had revealed to her the horrible plot and boasted that she shonld be made queen of the new black republic. The even ing before Holy Thursday and the planned massaore Malibran revealed the plot to Gov ernor CoDincre. Swift cenriern wata instant ly dispatched to Cienfuegos and many plant ers secretly notified. The inhabitants of the city were summoned, the blacks within the city imprisoned; the place fortified against the onslaught as best it might be; and at day-break relieving forces arrived from the west, xfat the uprising could not be staved. Infuriated at betrayal, the blacks began the massacre at daylight. Hundreds of families were safely within protection at Trinidad. Those who were not, and were unable to de fend themselves, were butchered. The whole valley was swept by fires and demoniac hor rors. Then on came the brute hordes upon the city. The attack was ferocious but fruit less. A terrible hand to hand battle ensued. The blacks were driven back into the valley, the jangles and the mountains, and in time were again subjugated. Upwards of three hundred whites were butchered and more than a thousand blacks were killed outright. The desperate Cangalito fought like a wild beast. Defeated he fled to the jungles, where scores of pursuers fell by his hand before his own life paid the forfeit. To this day the saying, "Eres mas malo que Cangalito I" ("You are worse than Cangalito!") is a com mon one among tne provincialisms of tne re gion as a reminder of the Bevolucion del Qoemado, and were von here in auaint old La Yijia upon the heights you would see, away mere to tne nortn, a mighty tower, Manaca Isnaga, another relic of that tragic time. It is a fortified tower four hundred feet high, built there immediately after the uprising of '33. At its top is a monstrous bell which can be heard five leatraea in nnr direction. Twenty-four strokes of Its riant tongue were to warn the whites in the about Trinidad of another Bevolnoion del Qaemado. Bat the enslavement of blacks by Cubans oeased When the worse enslave ment of Cubans by Spain began; and the tolling of the great bell has never been heard through the beautiful valley. -fcaXJAR U.

Norristown Herald. A remarkable case of longevity has been discovered at Grafton, Pa., in the person of John Fosdick, aged 102 years. Remarkable, because John can't read fine print without spectacles. Indeed, his eyesight is so poor that he can't read any kind of print. He is the first centenarian discovered who could not "read fine print without glasses." Nor ristown Herald. Joe, the colored waiting man, came in ear ly one morning to make a fire for Elisha Carr, a sort of evangelist, who was stooping with Joe's master. It was cold and " the ground was covered with snow. "Have you got religion yet, Joe!" asked Mr. Carr. "No, sir." "Well, don't you want to get it?" No, sir; I don't know as I does." "Well. you'd better want ts get it. You'd better want to get to heaven, where it will be warm and you won't have to make fires on cold mornings." The idea struck Joe with force and he "studied" over it for a while; then looking up with a puzzled expression he asked: "Tell me, Mr. Carr, is dey any white folks np dar?" "Yes." "Well," sigh ed joe, "you nee'n't ter tell me ef dey's any white folks np dar dat niggers won't have ter make fires fer 'em I" Editor's Drawer in Har per's Magazine for May.
