A anoAn-maex.rI, wholo-souled, reso
'lute and rugged American passed from
earth when Preston B13, Plumb, United
Sltatea sonator from Kansas, died.
lromu a poor boy in a country printing
office he moved steadily forward by his
own exertions, unaided by adventitious
fortune, until ho reached the eminence
where death overtook him. Other men
in public life were more polished and
scholarly, and perhaps possessed more
of the qualities of statesmanship, but
none excelled him in that saving com
mon sense which men call sagacity, and
which made him so true an interpreter
of the public will. Few states have
been better served in the halls of con
gress than was.Kansas by Preston B.
Plumb. He was courageous, indus
trious, indefatigable. He knew the
necessities and the sentiments of his
people and he stood up for them even
against the party whip. He was first of
all a western man, true at all times to
the every interest of the section in
which his lot was oast. The people of
Montana, whose steadfast friend he was,
join sincerely in the common sorrow at
his untimely death.
STOP THE; CHINESE.
It would be hard to find a more in- `
effective or useless law than the Chinese a
restriction act. Its provisions, if car- v
ried out, would accomplish the neces
sary purpose, but either through lack of I
vigilance on the part of government o
officers or their complete inability to en- b
force the measures, it has become a
travesty. So easy is it to avoid the pro
hibitory clause that Chinamon instead
of crossing the border along Washing- p
ton and Montana, a journey where de- v
tection results only through the aid of n
lightning or other circumstances b
quite as fortuitous, they choose to travel h
over the Canadian Pacific to Toronto or tl
one of the cities along the St. Lawrence s
and then cross to the American side.
This route is easier and avoids the ne
co.sity of a long wagon ride in one of t
the northwestern states. It would ti
occur to the reader that a healthy e:
Chinaman would be a rather ditlicult
piece of merchandise to smuggle, but
apparently this is accomplished with
the same security and secrecy employed e
in transferring a piece of lace or a dia- q
mond. For instance, we read that a b
fair average is one capture in fifty and d
that they are smuggled in bands of c
from ten to 100 each. At Brockville, a t
small Canadian city on theSt. Lawrence '
noear Ogdeusburg a train recently landed a
100 Chinamen at the warehouse on the k
wharf. They disappeared during the t
night and presumably were well on the (
way to New York the next morning. If n
the law cannot be enforced along a well tl
populated river front, with many depu- a
ties watching, how is it possible to ex- t
pect enforcement at any point of the
Another question recently raised and c
which is likely to prove an important F
feature in the application of the law is i:
the claim made by Chinamen, when a
caught, of being subjects under the q
British empire. They claim residence x
in Hong Kong which is under British a
It is evident that congress must give °
this matter serious consideration. The n
law should be either repealed altogether d
or remode'ed so as to make it effective. I,
If the present system continues, out- i
breaks against the Chinese and serious a
riots will occur. S,~gns of such results a
have already appeared in several west
ern cities and it is probable that citizens
who are subjected to the bad features c
which the law is intended to prevent, a

A Tellerrfot's P'redicament.
A young man last summer essayed to de
scend from the red mountain crag which
rears its umber head above the little station
of Wagon Wheal Gap, Col., and does not
care to risk the chaffing that that poor fel
low got. lie had climbed up to the top of t
the cliff, as adventurous and sight-loving
youth will sometimes do, and about four
o'clock in the evening essayed to come
down, and in about half an hour, after a
rough experience in rolling, slipping and
struggling downward, found himself cling
ing to the face of the cliff at a point where
he could heither go up nor down. He was
fairly treed and perforce began to wake the
echoes calling for help.
A mile away. to the Hot iprings hotel,
one came riding in hot haste. A man had
fallen from the cliff and broken his leg, and
the doctor should come at once; and there
was a hurrying to and fro, and a chorus of
exclamations and a great stir among the
guests, and the doctor was off like the
wind, and numerous lights could be seen
afar climnbing the monntain, and when the
help reached him he was neither dead nor
dying, had no broken limb nor strained
arm or ankle, but was simply rock-bound,
entirely unable to help himself. Above
him was the perpendicular clilf, below a
narrow overhanging shelf of rock and a
fall of thirty feet to the broken stones be
low, with a nossible roll all the way to the
bottom of the mountain.
Those mountain folk are rough jesters;
when they found that he was unhurt they
began to chaff him unmercifully. 'they
told him they had brought candles to have
a wake; that he should have a first class
funeral; that they didn't see what he could
do but just to drop off over the shelf and
take his chances and be done with it. But
kind hearted, as they always are, one of
their number climbed up under the pro
jecting shelf of rock, not a firm hold with
one hand, outstretched his other arm to
give what aid he could, and the others
stood below to catch him ias he fell, ani
thus, if possible, save his life; and he waes
directed to back over the cliff crawhlor
fashion, face downward, swing of, aed
then hang on like grim death. This droe,
the nearest mlan, with his outstretellhe.i
arm, grabbed his feet and placed thenm
upon his shouldels, and the poor follow lit
go to find himself the noet moment con
valslvely grabbilreg the neck and lshou!dets
of his rescuer, and somnebow he slid down

In a sermon on profanity delivered in
Chicago last Sunday Rev. Dr. Martin said
that swearing was the characteristic accom
plishment of the American nation. "When
visiting a mill," said the reverend gentle
man, "one can see the value of one dam,
hat only folly in the hundred damns he
hears from the fishermen on the banks of
the stream." But Dr. Martin should con
sider that there are occasions which of
themselves palliate the offense of strong
language. When his illustrious namesake,
Dr. Martin Luther, hurled the inkstand at
the Father of Lies he would have been jus
tified in accompanying the missile by an

in oneof the rich drawing room filled with

of Cardinal San Marzano, of Rome, and
first cousin to General San Marzano, com

mother, Marquise Helen, was a MissGillin

lovely American women who have married
in the nobility. She is a devout Catholic,
and in one of her apartments has fitted up
a shrine to the Virgin, where tapers burn
throughout the day and night, shaded by
costly Bohemian glass. The rooms contain
a quantity of rich vases, fine paintings, Im

How Isabies Are Named.

burns the brightest is the one given to the
In the lEgyptian family the parents choose
a name for their baby by lighting three
