' Not tho loast admirablo passago in tho Prosl- K. dont's messago is tho ono that was " writ sur-BV- kastical," as Abtemus "Wabd usod to say. H?l " Of course," writes Mr. Cleveland, " it V" is not expected that unnecessary and oxtrava E?r cant appropriations will be mado for the pur- Hjj! pose of avoiding tho accumulation of an ex- R& cess of revenue" B?' One can imagine tho grim smile that over- '! oprcad the President's features as ho penned VC these words, and thought of the war-tariff BSp defenders on their way to tho Capitol with Bfif. their pockots bulging with bills for "un- BJp necessary and extravagant appropriations" Wmi-P- to oat up the surplus. BKl There is a delicious irony in tho President 's Bjf' "of course." H A UIBAPPLIED ADJEOTTVE. Bfk' 'Why will the Paris correspondents' persist Bi In roferring to President Cahnot as "oom- Bft monphxee?" Their own record of his career HI and estimate of his character refute the Hpt adjective. Hb2i. Is a family that produced tho Oaunot of HK:? Revolutionary famo "commonplace?" Is HR tho now President's acknowledged ability as B9t'' a financier a "commonplace" quality? Is BX the sterling honesty that resigned a portfolio BjhHaa. rather than wink at a job a "commonplace" jVil attribute of politicians? T J Cabnot is heedless of glamour, glare and TOE Blitter, but devotes himself with energy and Wm dlligenoo to his dutios. The "common. B&i; laco " Parisian has a well-known fondness HK. .. for superficialities. BSt;; OabnotIs anything but " commonplaoo," BKS Bo is decidedly exceptional. H'' HOW OHE TAa. WORKS. Hm Congressman Dilano, of this State, who B&; Ijepresents somo glass manufacturers, says Hjf ' that lower taxos would " mako tho rich richer BX'V ' an ue 1,00T poorer." H,' The war tariff on glass has made million. Bx eixea of most of tho manufacturers, whilo tho BjOp wages of glass workers averaged only $1.70 a HjH' day in 1680 against Q2.00 in I860. Hil And this is how one tax "protects Ameri- HVp- can industry." gt THE OBAB AT THE PARS. HmT The schemo to 'encumber City Hall Park Hraj with a braco of architectural monstrosities is HS, not only repugnant to tho artistio sense and H9 Is defiance of tho general desire to increase Kl ' rather than curtail our downtown breathing Hk places, but it is distinctly illegal. HKjk The Legislature, authorized the construe H tion of ono municipal building. It is pro- Hjw posed to put up two distinct structures, and Htfr to mako them one by the simplo process of HM? calling them "wingB." The Legislature H passes many wonderfully elastio laws, but it HjtK" may be doubted whethor it seriously con- H' templated or whether tho courts would ap- Bif;.' prove the bald proposition that 8 1. Hf s The architectural tasto of the persistent HEAL Oommissloners is about on a par with their Hjui'f,;, mathematical ooumen. Rv A CAUSE FOB " IHItlTATIOH.'' Hk- Thoore-headed Old AVhig journal accuses Br tho President of displaying "irritation HK, towards American manufacturers" in his BBk; earnest appeal for an abatement of the war hK Utlt- Bus flBHttlM stronger feeling than irritation against the "organized combination" which, as the President says, has prevented a reduction of the tariff upon any article, no matter how needless the duty, lost the chain be broken that gives them their monopolies, a There aro manufacturers to-day sufforlng for cheapor raw material who dare not favor it lost tlioy loso part of tho bounty which they obtain on their products. It is high time for tho people to combino against tbo combination. WOULD IT PAT 7 Tho argument that a postal telegraph would not pay, ns compared with tho Western Union, is by no means conclusive. Even if tho Government's expenses should be somewhat largor, It would still havo a wido margin in its favor. Tho AVestorn Union earns dividends on an enormous amount of watered stock. With tho reduced cost of materials, it is cstimatod that its plant could bo duplicated to-day for about ono third its capital stock. Presuming that tho Government's business but equalled in amount tho Western Union's, only gross mis management could render it unprofitable Tho dangor of extending tho spoils system is tho big lion in tho way. rOEEIOH OPINION. 'The London journals aro, ai a rulo, both intelligent and candid in their comments upon tho Prosidont's Message. The problem of an enormous Treasury sur plus is ono with which foreign governments aro not called to deal. Bo sensitivo is tho nvcrago Britisher to imposition and extortion that no Government in that country could stand for six months that persisted in taxing tho pooplo, as our citizens have been toxod for six years, $100,000,000 annually in excess of its noods. England has for some time folt tho stress of competition with untaxed Amoricon prod ucts. If by securing untaxod raw matorials and machinery our manufacturers could.com peto with her in tho opon markets of tho world, hor commercial supremacy would suffer' also. THE BROOKLYN BOH00L ISSUE. Tho impression that politics moro than anything olso brought about tho dlschargo of Miss Moitnia, tho Brooklyn tcachor, is likely to provail. Tho charges of a lack of efficiency and tact, if not entirely frivolous, reflect less upon Miss Mourns than upon tho successive sohool superintendents, who for many years havo especially oommonded hor work. Moroover, her dofonso was not hoard. Tho fingers of tho politicians will suroly got scorchod if thoy moddlo with tho sohools. WithTna Wobld, the Timt; tho Boston Herald and Olobe, tho Philadelphia 1'ren, and a dozen other highly prosperous newspapers of tho first class soiling at two cents, it is quite amusing to seo tho sober arguments of tho old-fogy portion of tho press that the thing " can't be done." OnABLEa EC. Knox has resigned from tho Republican County Oommltteo and an nounced his purposo to support President Cleveland. lie is tired of war cries, war taxes, dead issues and quadrennial " scares " at nothing. There will be thousands like him next year. 1 fiati xm Tho Pennsylvania organs are hilarious over the President's Message No doubt tho monopolists might again pile up 80,000 ma jority in that Btato for tholr Presidential can didate But what of it T They don't run tho United States. Tho perfect success of Tub Would'b fore cast of the President's mossago was duo to its observance of the wise admonition of Hosza. Biqilow: " Don't never prophesy onloss ye know." Tub WonLD'a corrrtapoudont know. A young Rhode Island artist, a passcngor on the ill-fated steamer Scbolten, who had been regarded as lost, has finally turnod up alive. Romance of this sort affords a very satisfactory sequel to a maritime disastor. The 2W!mne' Europoon correspondent says that Mr. Plains " is always laughing."

The Baltlmoro gas companies cannot agrco to tho conditions of a trust. When oororato greed meets corporato greed then comes u tug of war that the people can view with oom-placonoy.

Thomas ltandall, of Buffalo, owes hie life to tho reprehensible habit of wearing celluloid collars.

Whilo a lady of Xenla, O., was preparing feed for her chickens recently the diamond In her en gagement ring dropped Into tho mixture, and the Ioib was not noticed until the feed had been eaten by the fowls.

Two years ago Frod Arndt, a fanner living near Ilenton Harbor, illcu., had his hand shockingly mangled by a circular saw. In course of tlmo ho died, and not long after bis death a young man employed on his farm dug up In the vegetable patch a carrot of unusual size which frightened him when he saw It. It waa aa exact representa tion of Arudt'a crippled band, 'and for a moment tho young man .thought It was really tho dead man's hand Itself. Toe discovery created a super stitious uwo among tho villagers. i RED-LETTER DAYS AT THEATRES. If Lord Tennyson could havo seen Mtsa Annlo Russell last night as limine he would undoubt edly havo wondered how ho could have wrltton tho poem without having known her, so exquisitely true was she to the spirit of the Idyll. And the poet laureato would havo thanked Mr. A. M. Palmer for a produotlon so careful, so marvel lously beautiful that it held a critical audience In absoluto enjoyment for three hoars. "Elalue," at the Madison Square Thcatro, Is one of tho things that It Is a sin not to seo. It Is Tennyson's poem lu a scries of lovely pictures. Nothing moro artistio has bceasecn at tho Madison Bquaro Theatre. Miss Annlo ltussell received great pralae for her Impersonation. Miss Marie llorrougha, as Queen dulaovero.waa delightful to look at, and did as much as her small part would permit very effectively. The Btr Lancelot, however, was by no means Tennyson's creation. Mr. Sulvtnl ranted In a way that was not Auglo-Sixon, and rolled his r's In a terrific manner. Ilia make-op waa not effective. Tbo remarks made by a lady In the audlenoo coven all criticism couccrnlng Mr. Balvlnl. "How two women," said ahe, "can fall In love with a man bo odloas-looklng (by rea son of his make-up) Is more than I can understand. What oould Klalno and Guinevere have been think ing of t" Miss Bellgman made her first appearance on the atage as Llanyd, and did fairly well. Charles Overton was King Arthur, Louts Mauen Blr Torro and K. M. Holland Sir Oawaln. In no play aro Henry Irving and Miss Terry aeen to such advantage as In "The Merchant of Venice," which was producod at the Star Theatre last night. Not all the scenlo pomp of "Faust" can give such pleasure as the delightful Impersona tions of bhylock and Portia. Mr. Irving la a won derful Bhylock, und all the unpleasant peculiarities of that unlovely being were given with great force. Miss Terry's Portia Is, perhaps, the best thing Bho does. Tne stagu setting last night was faultless. Young Josef llofmann appeared again at a matlnto at the Metropolitan Opera-Uouse yesterday and pluyeil lleetnovon's concerto In 0 major, No. 1, In a manner that astonished tho large audience.

Miss Aunle Meyers, a young Australian actress, who came to thU country last winter and was en gaged by Mr. Palmer to underatudy Mrs. Dooth In "Jim the Penman," hsa been extremely unfortu nato lu America. Mrs. lloolh gave her an oppor tunity to appear at tho Madison Bquaro Theatre in her place when she was 111. Alias Meyers, how ever, was III at the same time and the theatre was closed.

A Sllghtr Enjrtnt) Moved br the Fluctuation of the (Veal (Aa So rrantlito Call, After many aocidenU and trials the wave-power motor, so long talked of, has been nalsiud and proved a auccess. The construction of thla ma chine or apparatus, which was begun In July, lsso, was at that time considered a hair-brained scheme, but the projectors stock to their plan, and aeetn bow to be in a fair way of auccess. Great difficulty was cxpirlenccd at first In getting tho materials to withstand tbo ;forcu of rocks thrown against them by the waves, and the pipes wnich conduct tho water up tne bluff were broken and carried awsy nosiesi tnan fourteen times. Winn the schooner Parallel went ashore, and her cirgo of dynamite exploded, the motor was completely wrecked. A mass of rock, weighing coo tuns, waa thrown from the cliff and fell acroas the cliaam over which the motor was auipeuded, blocking it up to snch an extent that nearly three months were consumed In blast ing out the debris, boon afterwards anoiher mass of stone, welxhlng 150 pounds, fell and had to be removed. The motor, designed and built by K. T. HtecD, Is a very simple contrivance, and still is capable of exerting a great power. Across a chum In tne rocks, lust north of Parallel Point, a bridge of heavy umbers was built. HuHpcndcd from tnls is a tiugo lao or paddle of oak timbers, with tho spreading portion downward. This Is fastened to the bridge by Immense hinges, which allow It, when m operation, to spring back und forward a ulatsncu of on icct at ili wbici striken. Tho hsiiuiv, or upper part of the fun, la connected with a solid plunger tminp l'i Inches m diameter and having it ntroke of 9 to 1! feet. This pump. In turn, Is connected with a suction pipe running out Into deep water. Tho fan Is so rigged that It can bo drawn up out of reach of tho waves when not In nse. When a wave comes In tho fan Is thrown forward and forces the air out of the pump barrel In which the plunger works. Un tho wuve receding the fan Is carried seaward and tho pluugr Is drawn out. causing a vacuum, and uausea a quick rush of water into the suction pipe. The force with which tho water la drawn upls aiifflcleiit to raise It to an elevation of S0 feet above tho tide level. Should this motor prove as succeisful a the pro jectors seem confident It will, several iittitra will be built in tho same neighborhood, and an Im mense reservoir built on the bill tocuntu.utho wster. Thla one motor, with Its 12-lnoh plunger, Is capable of raising 12,000 cublofeetof water 8S0 feet high In every twenty-four hours. .The uses to which tne water will be put are valuable. A 80 Inch plpo will bo conducted to the city and water wlll-ba supplied to all branches of Industry where machinery la used. Bathlng-hnusca wdl also bo supplied with salt water aud sewers flushed when It h neccassry. The first work performed will be begun In about ten days, and an eight-Inch pipe Is now being laid for tho purpose. ' The laaWmentloned plpo W for Adolph Sutro, and Is to be utilized In sluicing away a lsrgo amount of drilling rand from the heights Jnat Dack of tho aquarium. This work la rendered necessary to prevent the sand from washing ou tho beach and retarding the work. The immense fan of the motor generates a large amount of energy not used in working the pump, and when everytnlng Is In shape electrlo dynamos will be erected to utilize this energy for nesting purposes and tho like -- How Amiable New York tJIrla Tenets China men In Hunday-Hchool. fjfru Tork Corrupontltnc iCaiuai City .feurnal.J I attended a Sunday-school of this naturo In session last weok, with tbo purpose of studying the teachers. Each Chinaman bad a young lady Beatcd beside him, and repeatod after ner, In tho most docile manner, tho words of a hymn. It was written on a card In Chinese and English. Tho teacher would pronounce the English word and tho Chinaman would repeat It aud at the same tlmo read the Chinese word and got tho meaning of the word In that way. Their pronunciation was very laughable. "Jo sua. Lover of My Buul" waa rendered, "Jesus, Yovcr of My Soul," lu a slng-songy manner, which the teachers could not correct to save themselves. When tho Chinamen Joined In a chorus even the teachers found It difficult to keep .sober counte nances. The teaohers all addressed their pupils as "boys," although some of them wsro grown to that ago when bald-heads and toothless gums are found In our own countrymen. Nearly all tho Culm so were dressed In silk robes ot different colors, and some of them lookod quite dignified. I was told that they were all lanndrymen. A few were dressed In tho American style, aud tome of these were quite aandtfled, wosrlng diamonds In their polished yellow shirt-bosoms and In their cravats, and were otherwise gotten np In thu laloit style. The pupils seemed to bo very apt under Iho Instruction given them by tho young women. The ltev. I)r. MacArthur, who was superintend ing the Instruction, said ho thought the Chinese wanted women teachers bcranse they are In their uaturca so much like children. To my eyes tho school looked more llko a Joily moctlng of mon and young women than like a class of pupils receiving Instruction. 1 talked with a number of young women and asked them how thoy liked tno work, and found that they wero quite gushing over It. They one and all agreed that they would much preier to teach the Chinamen than American men. Tho Chinamen, they aatd, were very appreciative, and did everything that waa told them. They snowed a great desire to learn and were as gentle as so tnanv doves. ' ' Why, " said ono pretty tlrl, " If we would let them, tney would Just shower us with flowers and tokens of their esteem. We havo to check their gratitude. They look up to us like so many llttlo children, and we feel quite motherly towards them." Cabling IHoner from New York to Europe. l'rcn la i'A(IaJtjMa lri. It has gotten to be a common thing for small sums of money to be transferred by cable between Now York and London. A twenty-dollar order may bo flashed nnder the Atlantlo from Now York In ample tlmo to serve as a shopping fund In Lon don tbo same atloruoou. And tho transfer Is cheaper and easier now, not to aay doubly more apeouy, than it waa a few years ago to send ten times the amount. Few people reallzo how closely the great cities of tho world are. conncotod br chained llghttilng and how cosmopolitan civilized humanity has become. Tho tele graph companies do this Bort of banking business by wire every day between tho cities of America. But It won't send a dollar, nor a thou sand dollars, at any price across tho ocean. Banks will cable money lu large amounts, or for valued customers, but only at a cost irohlbirlvo to mod erate pockeiliook. Tho great banking-houses will not transfer a smaller aum than 10, and then only at the rato ot $5 per pound sterling, lrreintc tlvoof current rates of exchange. After adding tho cabio tolls the operation becomes impractica ble. Bat It remains a fact that muca smaller sums are caided across tho pond dally and weekly and monthly without difficulty by people who know how to do It.

One Season Why a Unfile In Aid of TJngb Mnllen'a Mother Wai Held. The rich tones of an untrained tenor voico singing a patriotio Irish air, with a harmoni ous combination of other malo voices of dif ferent register joining in ringing chorus, at tracted tho attention of a World reporter in a Third avenue saloon Saturday night. Tho musia proceedod from a rear room, and tho bartender, who had Just filled tho re porter's order for a cigar, answered his in quiry regarding its cause by pointing to a sheet of foolscap pinned up behind tho bar. This scrap of paper boro this inscription ; Tho Itamo for Hugh Mnllen'a Mother adjourned till Saturday, Dec 8, at 8 p. u. Hero was n bull worthy of Boylo Rocho, tho celebrated Irishman who said that ho " never opened his mouth without putting his foot in it." It wasn't possible that Hugh Mullen's mothor. or any other old woman, was tho prize which had been rallied for, but tho re porter asked : " Who won tho old lady ? " The bright Connaugbt boy behind tho bar understood nt once and oxplaincd: ' 'There aro ten men in that room who didn't leavo thoir country ' for their country's good,' but be causo they were too good Irishmen to suit tho' Ideas of loyalty entertained by tho British Government. Hugh Mullen was a Dublin lad who was sentenced to life imprisonment a year and a half ago. " Ho was tho only support of his aged and widowed mother. The men in thoro nrd Mullen's friends and companions nnd thoy got up this rafilo to raise a littlo monoy for a Christmas present for tho poor old mother over the sea who has boon mado childless by British oppression. She knows ne ver n word about it and won't sho bo surprised to receive 200 or $300?" " But what did Mullen do to receive a lifo sentence?" " Oh, he just killed a constable and another officer that attempted to arrest him and take away some weapotibiwhioh he was concealing for the glory oMteVn&te?' " Then he was a Moonlighter or a Fenian ?" " He was an Irishman," was tho proudly sententious reply. I,oads of Christmas Presents. The big fancy-goods firm ot J.

This is all vory well, but in sotting to with Edwards, , don't give him a chanco to " cross " yon tho other way or you'll got a thump that will mako you think Sullivan is a "tapper." Miko Donovan says tho cross-counter by dodging tho head to tho right as tho left leads como in is tho safest by far. "It'll tako nn awful good big man to beat a clover littlo fellow," says Mike, "if tho littlo ono is careful about leading nnd keeps pasting tho big chap in tho car whilo ho keeps himself well out of danger. Tho othor stylo of cross-conntor is tho handier. It is described in Donnelly's box ing book very well, but tho cut', thero doesn't give u good iden of tho hit.

Robson and Crane to continue thoil engagement at the Union Square Theatre, thoso gentlemen wero, of course, delighted and disposed of their dates throughout the country in a satisfactory manner. It was also supposed that Mr. Hill had ' disposed in a similar manner of the attrac tions which were to have been seen at the Union Squoro Theatre. It soems, however, that the company playing " Deafen Brodlo " ., held a contract with Mr. Hill to play at the Union Square Thcatro the week beginning Dec. 19 on a rental, aud that thoy deposited money somo six months ago on account of tho rent. Mr.) Hill telegraphed to the man agers of this combination that they must cancel tho weok for which thoy had con tracted. No attention was paid to the tele gram received from Mr. Hill, and that gen. tlcman, giving the matter no further thought, .went on with his negotiations with Robson and Crauo. v So now tho "Deacon Brodie" company f insist upon holding their weok at the Union Squaro Theatre and refuBO to surrender it under any circumstances. They claim that thoy own tho therstro for tho week beginning Doo. 19. They aro now in Philadelphia, but it was said yesterday that they will shortly ' bo in Now York prepared to take possession of Mr. Hill's theatre. Thoy havo put the matter into tho hanjds of a lawyer. I A Flno Dlaplny or Dress Goods.
