Thero is some carping by hypercritical per.
sons over Mr. Glxvzlind's reluctance to
shako hands with fifty Westerners a minute
at the innumerable receptions on his circuit.
The argument of the complainants is that it
is an inborn right of fcvery one of our 60,000,000
people to " shako " with the IFresidont, and
that it is discourteous, if not actually uncon.
stltutlonal, for him to decline. Tho defense is
that tho President is not a pump-handle and
that his good right hand is not mado of cast
iron. In this dire emergency it fills us with
joy to como to the rollcf of all parties con.
ccrncd with an eminently practical sugges
tion. Let the President cultivate the knock
of ybaklng with tho left as woll as the right
band. Many clovor housewives have learned
to rest tho right hand in this way. By chang.
hi off in this fashion Mr. Cleveland might
rest himself, give variety to a tedious per.
formance and establish an invaluable prece
dent for his successors.
The interesting story, "Behind Asylum
Bars," told in yesterday's World by a young
woman who successfully feigned insanity and
spent several days in Bellovue and the Black
well's Island Asylum, conveys somo startling
foots. It shows that when once the idea that
n person is insane is suggested to tho mind
it is difficult to romovo the impression. It
proves that expert doctors are as easily de
ceived In such casc,s as non-professionals. It
demonstrates how easily sane persons may bo
subjected to a fate the most horrible the hu
man mind can conceive.
Here was a young woman who feigned in
sanity, it is true, but who successfully passed
tho scrutiny of policemen, Judges, matrons,
lynx-eyed reporters and experienced doctors
without detection. When sho designedly
spoke rationally and naturally thoso around
her wero moro than ever convinced that she
was insane She is satisfied that some of the
alleged lunatics with whom she was brought
in contact are as sane as herself.
Citizen TnAiN Iiob inaugurated his reign of
terror in Chicago. He provoked what was
very much liko a riot by his spooch at tho
Princess Theatre. Evidently Chicago has
not tho stamina to withstand his sky-rockoty
harangues. Only the unique Train himself
was able to restrain the mob that he aroused.
Our "psycho" to tho fiery citizen at this
juncture is to restrain himself as well. In this
reign of terror business he is pointed in tho
wrong direction. Such an erratio spark
should not fool around a powder magazine.
Thero is too much incandescence already

f" tft EADEES of Tammany
W Hall and the County
" r Democraoy will be
I very busy this week.
The chiefs of the two
organizations are to
meet in conference
within a few days and
harmony and unity
are to be talked over.
There is every pros
pect of Tammany Hall
and the County De
mocraoy uniting upon
a county and judiciary
ticket. This was prac
tically agrcod upon at
tho Saratoga Conven
tion, whero tho two factions signed articles of
peace and good will for the coming cam
paign, and as allies refused to smoke tho pipe
of peace with Irving Hall.
Slnco their roturn from tho State Council
of the party the leaders of Tammany Hall
and tho County Democraoy have been com
muning among themsolves in their own wig
wams. Thoy havo not, howover, appointed
ambassadors to represent the rival Dut now
friendly disposed machines in long and
short talks over the equitable division of tho
offices to bo voted for. Fire Commissioner
Richard Crokor, Sheriff Hugh J. Grant and
W. Bourko Cookran, on tho part of Tammany
Hall, and ox-Mayor Edward Cooper, Police
Justice Maurice J. Power and Firo Commis
sioner Henry D. Purroy, representing the
Countv Domocracy, may have had informal
consultations regarding tho union and moko
up of the county and Judiciary ticket, but os
yot no formal conforonco has beon held.
Tho Tammany Hall County and Judiciary
Convention moots next Thursday. After
forming an organization it will probably np-
Boint a conference committee consisting of
10 leaders of the various district machines
and then take a recess until aftor the County
Domocracy Convention, which meets on
Wednesday, Oct. 19, has named a conferenco
commltteo. Tho two committees will select
sub-committees and tho arranging for the
union will begin in earnest. It will not be
put of place to inform tho rcadors of tho first
Issue of The Evening WonM) that tho com
ing municipal election is an important ono.
Tho following officers that aro to be voted
for will prove this :
District-Attorney, tn place of Randolph B. Mar
tlnc. A Surrogate, In place of Daniel O. Rollins.
Two Justices of the Supreme Court, In place of
Abraham It. Lawrence and Charles Donohue.
Two Justices of the City Court, In place of
Ernest Hall and Stephen Burdett Hyatt.
Judge of the Court of General Sessions (accord.
Ing to act of last Legislature creating an additional
criminal Judgeship).
Comptroller, In place of Edward V. Loew.
President of the Board of Aldermen, In place of
Henry It. Beckman.
Coroner, In place of M. J. B. Messemer.
Besides theso and State Pincers, the electors of
the city are to vote for Bsnators, Assemblymen.
Civil Justices and Aldermen.
How Tammany Hall and tho County Do
mocraoy will divide up tho county judlcinry
and district nominations is tho question that
is puzzling oven tho knowing politicians.
All sorts of statements and rumors have been
floating around in hotel corridors, clubs and
places of publio resort about tho mako-up
of tho county tickot. It has been said that
Tammany Hall would demand tho naming
of the candidates for the Justiceship of tho
Supromo Court, a Justiceship of the City
Court, Comptroller, Surrogate and Coronor.
This would give tho County Democracy tho
selection of tho nominocs for District-Attorney,
Judgo of tho Court of General Sessions, a
Justice of tho Supremo Court, a Justice of tho
City Court and President of tho Board of Al
dormen. Then it has beoniiroclanned by po.
htlcol wiseacres that tho County Democrats
wanted tho Comntrollership to bo awarded
to them, while Tammany Hall would lay
claims to the General Sessions Judgeship or
both Justiceships of the Supreme Court.
Since tho press and tho publio hao beon
demanding the nomination of nnndolph B.
Martina for Judgo of General Sessions, and
Do Iiancey Nicoll for District-Attornoy, the
leadors of both organizations havo been do.
ing a great deal of thinking. Tammnny Hall
is perfectly willing to havo Mr. Mnrtine and
Mr. Kicollon the union ticket, but insists
that thoir nominations be credited to tho
County Domocracy in tho rihlsion of tho
offices. If tho County Democracy lenders
seo dofeat for tho tntlro ticket sturiug them
in tho faco unless they placo both Mr. Mar
tine and Mr. Kicoll on tho ticket they will
endeaor to parcel out oithor tho District
Attorneyship or tho General Sessions Judge
ship to Tammany Hall. As Mr. Martina and
Mr. Nicoll hao heretofore been members of
tho Connty Democracy orgunizution, of
course Tammany Hall would prefer that tho
County Domocracy would nomiuato its own
members, and lcae tho wigwam a slice of
another part of the ticket.
An attempt was made to influenco District
Attorney Martina to stand for reuomination.
If the attempt had been successful It would
have resulted in the shelving of Mr. Nicoll.
Mr. Martino, howier, gnie certain gentle
men to understand that ho was a candidate
for nomination for Judgo of tho Court of
General Sessions. It is also said on tho best
of authority that ho has notified Iris friends
in the County Domocracy thnt ho would not
accept a nomination for that position unless
Mr. Nicoll is nominated for District-Attorney.
Judge Charles Dotiohuo has not given up
hope of being renominated. Ho lias been
bringing the strongest land of pressure to
secure recognition from' Tammany Hall.
Thero aro many leaders of Tammouy Hall
who think it would injure the entire ticket to
plnce Judge Donohue upon it. Tho Wig.
wnmitts who remained faithful to the lato
John Kelly cannot forget how Judgo Dono
hue used his powerful influence in more thnu
one attempt to crush thoir old leader and or.
ganirntion. Corporation Counsel Morgan J.
O'Brteu is still mentioned for Supremo Court
Judge, and his friends aro pushing his claims
for promotion to the bench.
Tho Republican leadors are patiently await
ing tho result of the pow-wows between Tarn,
many Hall and tho County Democracy.
Their County Judiciary Convention will
not nominate a ticket until the Dcm.
oerats havo placed their ticket in
the field. The Republican bosses will be in
a position to mako capital out of any mis
takes the Democrats may moke. There aro
hundred of prominent Republican!! who are
wishing that tho Democratic iciiohines will
bet Mr. Nicoll aside. In that event they
would favor his nomination on a Republican
Citiavu County Judiciary ticket. Thoy aro
of opinion that a Republican-Citizens' ticket
would not only overthrow a machine union
ticket, but would bring thousands and thou
sands of votes to tho Republican Stato ticket.

den Saturday night,
successful night of tho fair. The Anti-Pov-erty
Society has for its highest aim the abol
ishment of poverty and the elevation of the
poor: and when Mrs. Haokett, who has been
preaching for years the doctrines which sho
believes to bo the solution of the social prob
lem, looked for tho object of the interested
attention of some children who, standing
near her booth nt the Anti-Poverty fair, were
looking intently at tho bottom of ber gown,
she found that an emaciated and thoroughly
poverty-stricken black kitten had laid its
bony frame thorn, she practised what she
prcachod. The kitten had wandered into the
Garden from tho stroet and Mrs. Hackott
took it up as a harbinger of good luck to the
fair and the United Labor Party.
Tho kitten was taken to stout-hearted Mary
nalligan, Dr. McGlynn's former cook, who
guarded the passage to his room from sacri
legious intrusion by thoso who had been ap
pointed in his place long after the toggarlh
aroon hod boen evicted by the order of sus
pension from tho Archbishop. Mary gavo a
banquet of cold turkey to tho waif, and it
spoedily becamo a favorite. It was chris
tened Anti-Poverty, and was petted by the
ladies and dragged about by the children at
tho fair until Mrs. Haokett thought it might
be petted to death, and took the boby homo
with hor, where it now is. It is living on the
top sholf, has shown an exceeding fondness
for raw oysters no vinegar, thank you end
is growing sleek and fat.
Tho ladies at tho fair insist upon it that it
is Scotch luck for a blaok cat to come to one's
house, and that Anti-Poverty is suro to bring
luck to tho cause for which they work. The
kitten will bo an attraction at the fair this
week, and will accompany Henry George to
tho White Uonso in 1885, say the lady politi
cians of tho fair. At any rate, its coming into
the Garden was a sign of good luck for itself,
and it is evidently quite satisfied with its en
trance into politics as a member of tho United
Labor party.

syndicate they have made up on tho particu
lar stock they are going to bull or bear to the
extent of their pile, they will hustle all over
the stroet and see all their friends, to find out
if possible tho latest tip concerning their fa
vorite. A popular dodge to get a tip on some
active stook then attracting the attention of
tho speculative market is to go to tho office
of some big brokor who is dealing largely in
that particular security for his customers
and pump his bookkeeper.
Sometimes the bookkeeper is a gentleman
of icry cosy morality, and will not refuse to
impart what knowledge he bos regarding the
transactions of somo of tho big customers of
the firm to a friend or acquaintance, espe
cially when the request is backed up by an
offer of coin in moderate amounts. Perhaps
the representative of the five-dollar synui.
cate is told that Mr. So and So, ono of tho
bicgeBt traders in the street, has sent in an
ordor to buy a thousand shares of tho stook
in question, and off be goes to adviso his fol
io w-conspirators to float up on a bull mar
ket, and thoy go in for n quick turn. If thore
aro any indications that thero is going to be
unloading tho syndicate will sell and toko its
chances on a falling market.
Theso little games uro comparatively inno
cent, howevor, when their effect upon the
market is concerned. Thoy are carried in a
bolder manner sometimes, as, for instance,
when two opposing cliques are fighting each
other in tho market nnd it is of the utmost
importance to each to find out just what tho
other is doing. Then easily approached book,
keepers and clerks are in great demand, and
thero is often big money floating around on
these occasions which finds its way, it is said,
into tho pockets of mm who are not above
betraying tho interests of thoir employors
and their customers.

T i n Jl crave of tho famous
CMc,"j?L naturalist, John James
Atl IJ" ' dp ' Audubon. Itisasim.
r ''" pip omb of gray gran
ite built in tho hillsldo and covered with a
natural drapery of vines and wild plants,
and in lis Bolitude and quiotness is sugges.
tive of the wild woodland scones that the
natural Bt so dearly loved during his lifo.
Somo time ago it was decided by the authori
ties of the cometory to cut a roadway
through that part of the ground where tho
tomb of Audubon Btands and it was found
that this would necessitate tho removal of
his body. At tho some tlmo a now avenue
known as Audubon avenuo is to be opened
between Tenth avenue and tho Boule
vard, which will intersect the cemetery. A
proposition has beon mado, therefore, that
the body of Audubon, when it U romovod
from its present resting place, bo interred at
the head of the new avenue and the spot be
marked by a handsome monument worthy of
the great naturalist's fame.
The New York Academy of Scioncos has
taken tho matter in hand nnd one or two
meetings have been held with a view to arriv
ing at some understanding regarding tho
purchase of the monument, which will bo a
vory handsomo ono, the monoy to purchase
it being raised by subscription. A -committeo
consisting of Prof. D. S. Martin and Dr.
Britton and Prof. Eggleston, bf Columbia
College, havo tho arrangements in hand and
aro now in negotiation with tho family of the
naturalist for tho purpose of securing tho
authority necessary, and their furthor plans
will be announced at some future meeting.
The remains of Audubon have lain in tho
vault in Trinity Cemetery since his death in
1851. In viow of tbe interest which the
present project has already aroused, it might
not be out of place to present a sketch of tho
lifo of the colobratod scientist, about whom
so little seems to bo known at tho present
day. He was b.orn in tho year 1775, of French
parents, in the southern part of the Stato of
Pennsylvania. At a very early ftfo ho began
to develop that love of nature which led him
to become a devoted student of everything
pertaining to nature. As he says himsolf:
' ' When I had hardly yet liarned to walk tho
productions of nature that lay spread all
around were constantly pointed out to me.
They soon became my playmates, and before
my ideas were sufficiently formed to enablo
mo to estimate the differences between the
azure tints of the sky and the emerald huo of
tho bright foliage I fell that an intimaoy
with them, not consisting of friendship
merely, but bordering on frenzy, must ac
company my steps through life, and now
more than ever am I persuaded of the powor
of those early impressioxs. None but aerial
companions suited my fanoy."
Ho inherited his intense love of nature
from his father, who encouraged him, helped
him make collocfions in natural history, and
taught him to paint ard draw, an art whioh
he afterwards made ncblo use of in his great
work on " Ornithological Biography." His
education was completed in Franco, whither
his father sent him at an early age. Ono of
his masters at Paris was tbe groat David.
When he first rotucnod to this country, at
abont tho ago of twenty-five, ho wont Into
business. He made repeated failures, how
evor, in trade and finally gave up every
thing for his favorite study of nature.
He used to take long excursions on
the rivers and through the woods, accompa
nied by his wife and child. In this way he
travelled all through tho States of Pennsyl
vania and Kentucky, sketching and writing.
Somo of his descriptions of woodland scenes
are the most beautiful and picturesque over
written. Ono can feel tho fresh air mowing
in his face as he reads, ho can scent the odor
of prairie flowers and autumn woods and
hear tho roar of the surf along the seashore.
Nature, and not books, was his teacher.
He began to write his great work on birds
in 1825, and completed the first volume in
1831. Tho fifth .nd last volume was finished
In 1839, and cho wcrk Is one of the grandest
ever undertaken. While he was writing it bo
viBitod England, where he was received with
open arms. In 1828 ho went to tho Con
tinont and visited Cuvicr and roceived his on
couragoment in his work. Aftor his roturn
to tho United States he first dovoted his at
tention to tho bird life along the Gulf of
Mexico, and discovered and described a num
ber of new spocies. Then ho explored Lab
rador and tho coasts of British America. Ho
died in 1891, at tho aqo of seventy-six.
His devoted love of nature cannot have a
better illustration than in tbo closing chapter
of his great work on Bird Biography, where
he says :
" Amid the tall grass of the for extended
prairies of the West, in tho solemn forests of
the North, on the heights of the midland
mounta'ns, by tho shores of tho boundless
ocean nnd on the bosom of the vast lakes and
magnificent rivers, have I sought to search
out the things which have been hidden since
the creation of this wondrous world, or seen
only by tbe naked Indian, who has for un
known ages a job dwelt in tbe gorgeous but
melancholy w ilderness. Who is the stranger to
my ovn dear country who can form an ode.

Flowers for the Widow In tbe lied noose.
IfyonfSe tltton CovrUr,
A lady living In the suburbs was called down the
oilier morning to see a young girl who baked for
ber at the door but declined to enter the house.
The lady recognized the caller as a girl she had
frequently seen In tho neighborhood, bnt of whose
name she was Ignorant.
Tbe girl looked hurriedly up and then bashfully
cast down her eyes to the doormat, which she ner
vously prodded with the toe of her coarse boot.
"(lot any nowersf'sho demanded with a man
ner which seemed gruff, but which was probably
only frightened.
'' Not many. Why?"
" 'Cause jils' Purlngton wants some."
"Who Is Mrs. Purlngton t"
" She's the widow woman what lived tn the red
house at the end of Back Alley."
' ' What sort of flowers does she want J" Inquired
the lady, utterly at a loss to know why Mrs. Pur
Ington, the widow who dwelt tn the red house at
the end of Back Alley, should send to demand
flowers from a perfect siranger.
"Idunno," answered the girl, more sullenly
than before.
" But what ta she going to do with them t" per.
slated the puzzled lady.
' ' I dunno, repeated the caller. ' She's dead,
an' she wants some flowers. "
And tbe patbetlo situation having thus become
clear at length, the lady sent to the departed
widow who would dwell no more In the red house
at the end of Baek Alley whatever blossoms the
frost had spared In her little garden.
