PKTcnsnuno. Aug. ai.-Tbo following la a
synopsis of a circular lettor recently sent out
from Petersburg br Gon. Mahone to the Ha
publicans of Virginia, gfrlng reasons why the
Republican party should not run candidates
for Congress:
" So long aa we contcat office with our oppo
nents a large number of our own people and
ot the outside world will not believe but that
our eloctlona nro reasonably fair and free from
fraud. Bo long ns wo play at the game we
nto stopped from crying that the dlio
nro londod. to long ni wo contest
nny political or tiubllo office wllh the opposi
tion wo keep it organized nnd stop disaffec
tion in thn ranks thereof. Our inly bote of
ever getting rid of the proscnt Infamous Elec
tion law nnd Its foul udtnlnlslrntlon Is to lonve
tbo Dcmocrnlla party nn onon field, when the
musses will begin to look Into tho usurpntions
of tholr patty managers nud tako concoru of
thelrown Imperilled libortlcs and aooi or or
lator tiro ot tholr methods, when division will
icotltably follow, and a Leglslnturo will como
that will stand tor a (air election Inw. so im
cetednstoseauro an honost roglitrntlon, fair
play at tbe polls, nnd correct roturns ut the
result, Tho masios of pcopio nro honeBt, nnd
It U only when iensn and bottor nature nro
purrmed by the pernicious, hollow-haaned np
psiiIs to tho prejudices of casto nnd suction
thnt fair uonllnctn our flections Is subverted.
'Let us with becoming manhood and self
reaped refuse to contest any sent In the Legls
lnturo this fall, nnd thus deprive the Demo
rrmia mnungers ot their digrncetul pretext
for polluting elooilon nnd lougor ronscrlblng
liyfoul nud tinudulent methods tho honest
will ut tlo vo'otstothi'lrcontlnuanouln power,
nnd so lonto tho ma-sea nn opportunity to
think for themselves. Consldor whltner we
aro drifting, nnd giro them nn opportunity to
ntorco n put Identic n of elooilou ini'thods.
The theory that a contest on our account Is
necessary to hold the party tngothor is falla
cious. A content under the oxisting Election
law, nsltlsnnwndmlnlstoied, only servos to
enablu Uourbou mamigors to apply the polltl
cnl lash nnd proelU'la the masses from looktug
luto their record. No ttue Itepubllcau noed. n
futile contest tn preserve his ltepublh an prin
ciple of lldellty to pnrty. Such ltopubllcnna
cannot ho expected to go into nny contest
whete fair piny and honest results.
" Our judgment, therefore Is thnt we make
no nominations for tho Legislature thl fall or
for any olllce. but leare tho Held to be contested
by tbe Alliance candidates and its dependents,
eservtng our fire lobe riuletly, but resolutely
and unanimously, delivered against the Uomo
cratlo nominee wherever theia Is a chance so
to direct our political Intluem-o with effect.
Wo know that no ltepubllcan. Democrat, or In
dependent under tho existing law can secure
the return at nny election, no matter how
mnny rotes may have been honestly polled for
him. except by tbe toleration of the managers
of the I'ourbon ollgaichy. Then why waste
tlmo and honeat endeavor In any election
where the law governs t"

There to Xerlew tha JUst Parnde,
IIcnKiMEn, Aug. 21. When the firemen came
down to broakfast this morning they looked
with aVorslon at the steaks and tbo cutlets and
the vend able, but they took to Ice water, cof-
feo, and milk with a brass-mounted thirst that
made tho drink slsswhsn swallowed. In the
gntden, just under the dining room window of
tbo Allman Houso, sat a big parrot that blinked
In at the joung fellows nt tho tables, chuck
ling the while and saying eottlr:
"Oh, mother, what a tlmo wo hadt Hey.
pop? Hal ha! ha! ha!"
The tun on the strootsof the nlcht before,
wlou brass bands and tln.horn brigades
parnded for hours, had left all hands somewhat
dragged, nnd not a few with their hair pulling.
However, tbe firemen soon pulled themselves
together again, tuned up their tin horns, nnd
once more mndo the town howl. Nor did they
bare to depend on tbelr own exertions only.
Iloclumnc as early as 7 o'clock trains from
along tho Central Ilallroad began arriving,
each with fiom tbreo to six extra cars at
tached, and every car loaded to the muzzle
There wore many mora firemen on the street
than during the day before, but the fnrmers
and other back country people did not turn
out In such force. That Is where Iho farmers
and others mlsBod It. ovon It It did look like
rain. It was worth getting wet to oeo tho bora
work tbe hand machine, the most Interesting
foaturo of thu day.
A heavy floor was laid noar the ilver with a
tub tor water at one ond and a stonmor handy
by to supply the tub. On this floor the ma
chines wero worked. Tho Exempts of Now York
took a hand tn. With their weight of years as
a handicap thoy woro not In It for a prize, but
as an exhibition ot old-tlmo fire work It was a
toclferous success. Tommy Trlpler clltnbod

Dulled tuelr coats oft and stretched the hoso.
. " Now than, boys, watch me. and don t hol
ler," said Tommy. They watched nnd began
to work the brakes, while a lazy stream smug
gled from the nozzle. .. .
"A little fastor." said Tommy; "a little mite
faster." and they worked the brakes while the
stream began to lengthen.
"A little more, an' more yet: hit 'er down:
give It to 'er. give It to'er. Now-now-now:
jump 'er. Jump 'er: whoop, not holler!"
As the o'd boys warmed up to tbe work they
opened their mouths, and for one good min
ute yelled like devils after a fallen enlnt. It
was a great snow.
In the contest for the prizes the best exhi
bition of able-bodied mnnllness was made by
the Watcbenioket Engine Company of East
Prr.vldence.lt. I. When Hlaok Jack Molleu
straddled the machine, bared his partly bald
bend and told tne boys that they'd "Uot 'er

Brief Reviews or Important and Interest
Inst New Publications.
There are countless strange things that for
the moment sosm to threaten tho sanity ot tho
ransst person who chances to glnnco over a
tew pages only of this week's most voluminous
book. Tha title page also Is perplexing and
astounding. Ittsnslong at tho title pages
of religious pamphlets In tho day of King
James: "Oahspe. a now Bible tn the Words ot
Jehorlh nnd bis Angel Embassador'. A Sacred
History of tbe Dominions ot the Higher nnd
Lower Hcnvsns on the Enrth for tho pobt
24.000 Voars. Being from the Submersion of
the Continent ot Pan tn tho Pacific Ocean,
commonly callod the Flood or Deluge, to the
Kosinon Era. Also a Drlof History ot
the Preceding 55,00 Years, together with
aSynopBts of tho Cosmogony of the Universe,
the Creation ot Planets, tho Creation ot Man.
the Unsoou Worlds, the Lnbor nnd Glory of
(lodsand Goddesses In tbe Ethcronn lleavons;
with tho New Commandments of Jebovlh to
Man of tbo Praseut Dnr, wllh llnvolntlons from
the Second lteturrectton, formed In Words In
the thirty-third year of the Kosmon era. ISfll,
Anno Kosmon 13." (Oahspe Publishing Asco.
olntton. Boston nnd London.)
Such Is tho portontons title, and tho woik It.
self Is no loss singularly Incoherent nnd elabo.
rately unintelligible It contains thirty-six
books, with namesasuntllutnlnatlngos those of
tho prophets in the Old Testament, such ns
Oahstie, First Book of the First Lords. Book of
Ah 'Shon: of Jehovlb, God's Book of Ben, nnd no
forth. In some csoterlo sousothe first books
are claimed as historical, but nothing his
torical Is recognizable by the unenlightened
eyes of an unconrortcd historian. Sometimes
, names occur like Apollo. Thor, Osiris. Abrnrn.
Brahma. Zaruthustra. and Kara, "erroneously
called Confucius." that aro familiar Indeed,
but In connoctlon with such unheard-of eronts
that thoy mean no more than any other names
picked at random from a dictionary. Thoro Is
n glossary of strange words used In the book,
which la quite unnecessary whou either nil the
words nro Atrange or none nro wholly Intel
llglule. " Otton " Is defined ae " Orlan. a ruler
OTeretherenn worlds." but the definition flm
ply makes the name more Intonsely dnrk.
Later tn tho huge volumo are book3 of cos
mogony nnd propheor, books on the formation
of language nnd doctrinal books, but none ot
them convoy meaning to any saro ,n adopt,
perhaps, of some mysterious cult A Mnhatmn
might rend and understand. A slmplo man
who lightly draws bis breath can only wonder.
All scientific doctrines, according to the
profaoo, aro set asldo by Oahspe " as so much
wasted paper." And m scicnoo is nothing but
organized oommon sense, statements that
have no connection with scientific knowl
edge seem to be void ot common aense,
to bo plain, unadultoratod nonsense. But
how comes such unmeaning gibberish
to be written r This Is the enigma that
underlies nil the others In Oahspe. It
cannot bo Intentlonnl nonsense, Uko tho
rhymes of Lear or tbe stories of Carroll, for
they are humorous, while this Is as dry as a
to.t book on meobanlcs. and a joko In 900
pages is preposterous. It must then be serious,
but If so one Is confronted by a singular trl
lemma, Tbo author was mad like Blako,
whose visionary portraits aro not unlike some
of those In Oahspe: but would not a madman
hnro hadsomo gleams ot Incoherent wisdom
and beauty ? Tboio Is too much method in his
madness. Or was he a dull but erudite Mo
hammed or Joseph Smith or Blavatsky who
would pose as tne prophet of a new dispensa
tion? In the prefaco he dnos. indesd. asset t
tbat Oahspe propounds a new faith, a some
what pantheistic faith In Jehovlh. the "all per
son." who contains everything in himself na
drops of water In tbo ocean: it teaches also
peaooand altruism and vegetarianism and a
crude form of socialism, together with the abo
lition ot all tariffs and national legislation.
But these doctrines aro nowberestnted simply
and clearly, as they would surely be stated
by any serious Impostor, and not even
tho show of logio tbat distinguishes the
Wildest vngaries of Ignatius Donnelly
connects the doctrines with the jumble ot
monstrous dreamlike mythology tbat precedes
nnd pervades them. Perhaps the writer really
wrote, as ho say. " without thinking about It
at all ;" was. In fact, In nn hypnotlj condition,
and this is therefore a ca-e of truo automatic
writing. It may be remembered that Thomas
Lake Harris, tho spiritual director of Laurence
OUphant was similarly affected and lay in n
trance for forty-eight hours In tbe Tromont
Temple evolving archltypal Ideas In his
mind, which afterward weie published as
"Lyrics from tbe Morning Land." To
tbe author those verbal trances might
well have seeni.d like Inspiration, though
roally an Inspiration from bis subcon
scious self nnd not from on high. Aa Dr.
Moll, the most recent authority, remarks that
such hypnotlo subjects can write faUohoods
as well In the tranco as when thoy are awake,
and as their delusion might doubtless con
tinue for somo time niter tbe trance Is orer.
this may well be the correct explanation of
this singular, Incongruous, nnd unreadablo
book. Even tho nonsense of tbe book might
soom less original It ono could see In tbe au
thor's mind nt tho moment of Inspiration the.
remnants of a wide and futllo reading, In theT
Koran, the Talmud, tho Book of Mormon, the
Arcann tElestla, and tbo neo-Orlental writings
ot the modern mystics. But another mystery
remains less easily explicable, how camo such
a bonk to pass Into a seoond edition ?
" Tho Cruiao of a Land Ynoht," by Sylrostcr

yncht such as the Arlndnel A more profes
sional rolumo of travel, though over no leas
familiar ground, Is "Three Months' Tour In
Ireland," by Mme. de Bovet, translated nnd
conden'ed by Mrs. Arthur Wnltor, with
Illustrations (Chapman V Hull). In tho
process of translation or condensation
wbatoror ot Gallic wit or epigram was
in the original has ovnrorated, leaving a rec
ord almost as dry and colorless ns a Murray
handbook, Tho lino of travel Is tbat ot tbo
ordinary tourist, and tbo fcenery, thepubllo
buildings, tho manners and customs of tbo
peoplo nio noted with sufllolent fulness to
i-erve tbe casual traveller, but without any
r,pecial detail or novelty to nttiact tho reader
or tbe studont. Tbe political uud the agrarian
questions seem, Indeed, to have been Inten
tionally neglected, and tbe author had ob
viously no opportunity for seeing tbe horn
life ot either tbe landlords or their tenants.
To a remoier land and a lite wholly unfamil
iar we are transported by Mrs. Annie Martin In
"Home Life on an Ostrich Farm" (New York:
Appletonsl. With fluent simplicity and femi
nine animation she ohats delightfully ot tho
quiet dally happenings on her husband's farm
of 12,000 acres In tbe Karroo district of Cape
Colony, Bhe tells ot tbe scarlet heath, the blue
lobelias, the insidious prickly pear, and the !
black, saline, succulent pasture; of hrriunu- '
raernble pets, sedate, grotesque secretary
bird, the clever old dog Tcto, "melancholy
Jaaues." tbe bustard; "Bobby," the mleahter
ous crow, nnd Ihe cunning, funny little
moerkatBtof ths " packing-case-like houses"
' otthe Boers; of the hot wind days and tbednys
ot deluge, nnd tbe bracing winters: and in
every other sentence there reour, like the fig
ures ot a stage army, images of ths all-pervasive
ostrich. There Is tbe carefully tended In
cubator, sometimes redolent with the nnspeax
ahlo horror of a bad egg. Then one has a
gllmpso ot a pinkish bill and bright
eyes through a crack in the "temp
ting half-oponod parcel;" then one sees
tho cbioks. happily surviving, may be, tbe
(Vital fourth week, not unlike hedgehogs ou
two legs with long necks, and finally the full
grown birds ready for tho plucking, "a forest
of long necks, and a crowd of foolish, fright
ened face, catling beaks, and throats all
purred out with nlr." Ostriches tun away,
breaking through or tumbling over tbo wire
fences, and escnpe apparently Into tho depths
ot darkest Africa, Havngo ostriches, guard
ing each bis Imaginary domain, broom
ns ono npproncbo, nnd kick wllh evis
cerating claw unless wardod oft by a
stout branch ot thorny mimosa. At times
the air socms full of fluffy osttloh feath
ers, ns the farmhouse floor Is littered with
them, nnd nt times the savory stoam arises nt
ilch ostrich soup. Ouo may with due defer
once wonder whether the usual way ot sweep
ing a chimney Is to send a fowl down It, and
wliothnr the South African crow Is often so
Intelligent ns to "drop a stone from n stent
height with a most accurate aim " on an os
trich egg to get an oasy breakfast. But tho
most querulous reader will peruse every page
with keen enjoyment, and will feel grateful
admiration for the clovor. plucky, womanly
woman who calls herself " Aunle Martin," '
From South Africa to Bussla Is a far cry.
and It Is through blue spectacles. Instead of
tho rosy ones ot Mrs. Martin, that the writers,
who adopt tho pseudonym of E. B, Lanln,
scrutinize the social pathology ot tbe
land ot tho Whlto Tsnr In "Russian
Traits and Terrors" (Boston: Benjamin It,
Tucker). Tbls la a collection of the Incisive,
pessimistic, brutal articles, that for tho last
year bavo bean publishing In the FortnigMtu
Jthtrw. With the vltrlollo Intensity of a
Junius, the thesis Is expounded and estab
lished, apparently, by official documents and
quotations from locat newspapers, that the
liusslan people are to-day uncivilized and
grossly Ignorant with tbe untruthfulness,
the fatalism, tho sloth, tbe dishonesty, and
the Immorality of primitive barbarism. This
moral paralysis, wbloh all readers ot
Russian novels know so well, Is de
clared to be "ns national as the
language or tbe music." to be "pan
Russian." and at the same time "there Is no
consciousness of sin." Russian finance Is sim
ply the devious shlftlessness of a bankrupt,
nnd as for the evil and tho shame ot tbe Rus
sian censure, the Russian prisons, and ths
persecutions of tbe Jews, the pen ot man has
not described It, nor can the heart of civilized
man conceive It. One wonders whether Rus
sia la the exception that proves Burke's golden
maxim that oca cannot draw an Indictment
against a whole people. The very blackness
ot tbe picture and the cruelty ot the denuncia
tion show, perhaps, that It is the work ot Rus
sian hands, and, llko the satires of Juvenal,
Inspired br tbe Indignation of enthusiastic but
Impotent patriotism.
Before closing this list of books of travel and
studies of foielcn life it may be well to note
tbe lepubllcatlonin Putnam's "Knickerbocker
Nuggets" ot Klnglake'a "Eothen," tbe clas
sical volume of tbls kind In tho language, and
with Morler's "Hndjt Baba" and Hope's
"Anastaslus,"ons ot tbe three best presenta
tions of ihe havoc and riot of the East, ot that
East wbloh abides forever, severed from Eu
rope by the plague and the fear of tbe plague.
It Is a book beelde which all other rooords of
travel seem Inartistic.
