A novel way of se'-thcj a disputed election has developed ia the Tenth Georgia district, Tom Watson's. Watson has l eeu twice defeated by ballot box stuffing and he natural y objects. His opponent. Curst res-maa Black does not seem deposed to go behind the returns t ut he has agree 1 to a com promise. He is the present member f-0711 that district. He will accept the certi loate of election and on March 4ih he will resign. A new election will then be called to fill the vacancy. I'.uth cla manta expect to le the candidates of the .r respective par ties. There is little reason to believe thac the lesult will oe different from what it bus bee:i in the past. Tom "Wat son would have been more likely to get justice if he had submitted his case to the new house of representatives. The Hutchinson Inte-ior-llerald, pub lished by Fletcher Mert d.th, a Republi can member of the coding legislature, Bays?: The Topeka Jocenal publishes about a hundred names of men who are actual or imaginary applicants for the score or so of places to be tilled by Republicans under the coming administration, and there are only eaven new, or unfamiliar names in the whole lot. Can that paper But formulate a liot that 4ill not be com posed almost entirely of old, worn out po litical hacks? The Jouhnal does no: "formulate" the list. It publishes it as it exists. There are a lot cf ''old worn out political hacks" who want cCIce as there always has been and perhaps always will be. Of course their namea are in the 1 st. It remains to Le seen, however, whether they are to bo recognized or not. ioitie are deserv lri; sotae are Bvt. The proposition of Gov. Leweilir.g to abolish a "number of useless boirds is well enough, but while suggestions of this kind are being made, a movement should be set on foot to wipe the state board of pardons out of existence. This board is of no earthly use. It does more harm than good. A clerk in the governor's oilice could examine a'.l the papers necessary in the few caes worthy of executive clemency aad the pardon business should tie suspended and a few criminals allowed to get their dues. If no pardons were issued criminals would be fewer. The courts would have less to do and the bta'e of the country would be Letter. As it has Leen lately, a crim inal has little fear of a sentence in the penitentiary, as in nin-i caes out of ten he will have little di Beulty in get ting pardoned out through some influen tial political friend or politician who wants his help. There is a growing prospect of ser ious trouble in Alabama. Keuben F. Kolb, Populist, says he La- been twice elected governor and this time ho in tends to be inaugurated. Governor Jones says WiliiomC. Oates was elected gov ernor and he will ses that he is properly inaugurated when the time comes. Kolb has Usued a manifesto calling npin his supporter to coiuu to his aid. The peo ple of thu entire country will anxiously await the result. Iu lb'.O when the count in South Carolina was finally set tled so as to give the state to Hayes in stead of Tiidiu, the same figures took away Wada Hampton's maj ril' f jr gov ernor, but tie took the same ground now assumed by Kolb. lis said he had been elected governor and he vas goinr to be governor, and he was.

Clark, Journalist, Author and l'hilosopher Brigrb' Eyes Tliat Are Sightlet6 A Remarkable Benefit Re called KIiz Arctiard Conner's Story. Special Correspondence. Ne-w York, Nov. 15. In the sum mer of 1SS-4 it -was my lot to do some newspaper "slninming" of themostdis asrreeable kind for a little New York daily that died soon afterward and left not money enough to pay its own funeral espf nses. Just at the time when my slumming work became the hardest and the meanest the assistant editor of the paper came forward to help me out with it aud stood by me all through, even when I had an Irish blackthorn club cane raised over my hapless head oa one occasion. The gentleman whose kindness at that tin-.o I have never forgotten was well known among New York journalists. He had practically entered their ranks when he was 15 years old, in 1855, be in? then the editor of a echool paper called Youug America, which he wrote out with his own hands. Ha was born in Kev York and graduated from the Mechanics' Society school in 1S56. Among 350 competitors he won the first prizo in composition and had tho dis tinguished honor of receiving it from William Cullen Bryant's own hands. The Morey Letter Itacallsd. After leaving school the boy wrote contributions for the weekly press, and at tho age of 23 he found himself regu larly on the staff of tho New York Sun day Dispatch. He was the first in the country to write about skating and to give newspaper space to it. The young enthusiast afterward wrote two books about skating. One related to ice skat ing. Tho other d9alt with roller skating. Afterward, aa he grew older, he made a specialty of political writing. When the daily paper called Truth was fctart- 11 J 1 MAP.VUT It. CLAEK. ed, he became connected with that. Tie was assistant editor of it when the fa mous Morey letter was published in that journal during the Oarfield cam paign. This great sensation went like a wave through the land, but my friend was not involved. Ho said to the mana ger, "For the Lord's eoke, leave me out of that racket, Hart," and he was accordingly left out. Thi.s was the gentleman who kindly aided mo in the slumming. He was fine looking, with a merry brown eye, im pe:'turbable good temper, and dark hair, with a few gray threads in it. Every body liked him. After the lapse of these years I particularly remember the brightness of his eye and his apprecia tion of humor. His name was Marvin Richardson Clark. Groping Slindly. After the melancholy funeral of the little paper Mr. Clark became a mem ber of the ttaff of Tho Morning Journal and later of The Commercial Advertiser. But people in New York may live next door to each other for ten years and never meet till they become acquainted coming home on a steamer from Europe. I lost tight of Marvin Clark altogether, thot;r,!i still hearing his name occasional ly. In the autumn of 1SSD one morning the papers contained an announcement that the New York Press club would on such a date give a benefit for Marvin li. Clark, the blind journalist. In the prime of his manhood, in the full Cower of his power as a writer, just when wisdom and skill are added to enthusi asm for those rare mortals who keep their enthusiasm and re-fuse to slump down, the brilliant, kindly, courteous gentleman had been stricken. I went to the Press club rooms to get information about him, for the news was inexpressibly shocking to me. I eat waiting in the reception room of the club for a few minutes to see the secre tary and ask some questions about tho benefit. Presently a gray haired man, groping blindly out before him with one hand, holding the arm of a friend with the other, entered. The look on hiss face, haunting, pathetic, helxless, Ehall I ever forget it? The expression was unspeakably touching. This was the gay, busy, brown eyed newspaper comrade who had helped me in 1861. He told me the story of hi3 going blind. It was working under the gas light that did it, writing night after night, year after year, in the cruel, yel low, spluttering glare. His sight grew dim very gradually at first. Then he began to use glasses. But the light be came dimmer and dimmer somehow. Yet he wrote on as best he could for five years. Then the light went out alto gether. My friend was blind, stcne blind. Ho couldn't even tell daylight from dark. A Kotable Benefit. It is a fact rather melancholy to con template, cn the whole, that newspaper people, even though they get good wages and are not particularly extravagant, can Eeldorn lay up much money. Few things more deplorably therefore, conld happen to a journalist titan to be stricken witii C v I - y S - . v- 4 - - blindness in his prime, with 25 cr 80 years more of life stretching out beyond him and others depending n him for support. The first thing was to provide for immediate necessities, and the Press clab gave an entertainment for Lim. The benefit was a notable one. News paper people are generous, and his broth er and Bister journalists contributed what they could afford. Theatrical stars by the score volunteered their services. Salvini, then in Boston, telegraphed that he would come and appear, but tho programme was already mads. Modjes ka, the world's Juliet, offered her serv ices, too, but there was not room for her, so she paid $100 for a seat. Joe Murphy bought another $100 seat and Joe Emmet a $ 1 00 box. Beautiful wom en whose names are known to theater goers of two continents sold flowers in the lobby. General Sherman sent his contribution and attended the entertain ment. It was one of the most brilliant audiences of distinguished people ever assembled in New York. And it netted some $4,000 to the popular newspaper man whose sight had gone out. JIarvin Clark was not one to sit down and moan. First, to furnish him some thing to do, he began in the lonely hours of darkness to think out stories. There was an element of romance and imagination in his nature that had been sternly repressed in journalism only to crop out in his life and bring him fruit age of sorrow. Now this faculty which had been cheated of its just rights came to brighten the darkness that had closed in around him. It peopled his lonely world with actors both in tragedy and comedy; it gave him gorgeous dreams cf palaces and cloud capped towers and visions cf fair landscapes. The next step was to give outer form to some of these dreams. Mr. Clark be gan to write stories. They amused him at first. The characters were like friends talking to him. He wrote them as best he could, in crookeel, pathetic linos, wide apsrt, upon the paper. Then friends suggested to him to try to learn the typewriting machine. He visited the office of a well known ma chine to see what he could do. Ho ran his fingers along the lines of keys. "Road them across," he said to the salesman. This was done, the clerk be ginning with the figures. Wonderful Skill. "Why, that's easy enough," said Mr. Clark " 2-3-4-5-0-7-8-9 -dah. Now read tho next line." The agent read it. "I can remember that easily enough, " exclaimed the blind writer "q-w-e-r-t-y-u-i-o-p. That's like poetry." So on through the keyboard. Thanks to an excellent memory, Mr. Clark learned the rows of letters in a very few minutes. Then he bought a machine and began to practice. Today he is a better typewriter than many who have two good eyes and class themselves as experts. It 13 remarkable, the manu script h prepares for printing, for Mr. Clark some time ago became an author, full fledged, and began to have stories and sketches published. He writes upon long strips of paper like a roll of webbing. This is so that he may not be troubled about getting the sheets of paper straight and in or der. His copy is astonishingly neat aud clear, needing fewer corrections and re visions than that of many who see ev ery word they write. His success with the writing machine is -wonderful. One familiar with the neighborhood of Park row, in New York city, will see at times a fine looking, well dressed man, accompanied by a bright eyed boy attendant, making his way cautiously across the crowded streets. There is an unutterable pathos in his face and the look of resignation that is born only of terrible suffering. Whether one knows the man or not, he will turn to look again at the haunting face with its dark, sightless eyes. But no melancholy ap pears in the manner or talk of the blind author. Ho is as cheerful as the golden throated canary that pours its music on the air of his sunny, south windowed room in Brooklyn. And when people ask him, aa they often do, "How can you bo bo serene and hopiuful always?" he answers: "Oh, well, one must be a philoso pher, you know. ' Eliza Archard Coxseb. The Slaughter of Horses. Chivalry had been left very far be hind when Wallhausen wrote on mili tary instruction in 1G1H. By his direc tions tho lancer fixes his spear point not in his opponent's cuirass, but in the head of his horse, and harquebuse, pis tol and musket are alike leveled at the hapless bea.-.t instead of at the rider. The cuirassier who is dismounted strug gles to his feet, and "d'espee en tache aussi de faire tomber le cheval de l'en nemy" that is, unless he is ridden down and trampled under foot before he can free himself from his stirrups. The slaughter of horses which must have taken place at this time must have been appalling, and such training might well produce troopers like those who, as d'Avila tells us, flying from the field of Ivry and finding the bridge across the Enre broken down, "cut off their horses' legs that they might serve them for a breastwork" against their pursuers. (English translation, 1670.) Perhaps the Italian phrase only means "hamstringed their horses, " but in any case one is pleased to know that these pitiless scoundrels were "destroyed in such manner that very few of them re mained alive." Yet the steeds so cruel ly treated were not mere hacks. They were "horses of price," trained to swim streams and leap ditches and fences under a heavily armed man, to cross 12 inch planks and pass over pile3 of dead without flinching nay, even to take their part in the combat "en mordant, frappant and forcant l'enne iny et l'endommageant en autres di vers cs sortes. " Wouldn't Insure the Czar. The late czar of Russia was said to be the only European monarch whose life was not insured. The companies all lated him aa a risk too hazardous to handle. FRANK W. P. BELLE W. The Artist Wh Called Himself Chip" bed Ills Originality. Frank W. P. Bellew, the artist who re cently ciod at his home in New York, and who, under the name of "Chip, " became so widely known through his humorous pictures, will be greatly missed by a wide cudience in this country. Chip's llrjes were bold, and his drawings may be said to bo technically not so artistic as many of his contemporaries who now survive him, but his originality and quaint humor woro all his own, and he worked in a particular line not approached by any other. His most successful character was his doff, and tliis dog possessed uch a happy disposition and wore such a perpetual smilo that no matter if he were Intro duced into a picture where he had no par ticular duty to perform, the mere fact 1 CHIP. of seeing him there would Invariably be lrresistibiuA Chip's dog, as he walked through tho columns of the comic journals or sat occasionally In some far corner and with his quiet smile gazed at the scene depicted by the artist, bus done much in eu unconscious way to make the public better. He has taught us a lesson of cheerfulness, for he has invariably breathed the spirit of a joyous disposition. Tho New York Sun says of Mr. Bellew: "He was the son cf Frank Bellew, the well known caricaturist, and as a young boy he decided to follow in his father's foorsteps. To prevent the confusion that would arise from the similarity of tho two names he selected as a pseudonym Chip, to indicate that he was a chip of the old block. But opportunities that were de nied to his father and his father's contem poraries were opened up to him. Comio papers were founded and flourished that were really funny, and in them Chip's work found a reaily market. Puck, Judge, Life and a score of other papers were on the lookout for good work, and Chip's orig inality and humor mado him a valuable find. His market was established, and his signature became known. Chip's work was essentially caricature."
