Ei Low Tldo in Immljirntlon. jw Although for uovcral years the rush of jW nowcomcrs lo our shores has fallen far i' short of -what It was at former periods, yet WJr tho statistics of the lust fiscal twelvemonth, tfv as made U at tho Treasury Department, q '. come somewhat as anurprlsc. I? " Tho last year had bIiouii a marked gnln jfr over 1895, aud It had seemed as though fri flood tldo had again set in. But now wo St find not only n decrease of about ouo-thlrd a from tho figures of tho provlous year, hut a j total so low that wo must go back nearly jji twenty years to find a parallel for It. ;'B Tho highest record of immigrants, ex- '5! eluding tho arrivals of aliens not so classed, K in that of 1882, when tho prodigious num- bcr of 788,002 came, following tho provlous 'J year's COO.l'.ll, till then unprecedented. In $ J 883 thcro was a heavy falling off to tlOlt,- f 322, and tho decrease went on until 334,- 4 203 was reached In 1880. Then tho tldo S ngain turned, aud with Romo variations sfi . another climax was reached in 1802, when ' tho figures were 023,084, tho third highest A mark in our history, and not far behind thntof 1881. But then began another ebb, p wlthn02,017ln 1803,followcd by314,407, !;$ then by 270,948, then by 343,207, and now .'ft this year by an astonishing reduction to la 230,832. I5j, "Wo find, in looking back through tho u ' records of former years, nothing as low as $? this until 1870 Is reached. That year p brought us only 177,620 immigrants, and j tho records of tho thrco years preceding had fc been oven lower. But tho period between x 1875 and 1870, inclusive, is tho only one :1 sinco the civil war which shows on Immi- f ' gratlon so small as that of tho fiscal year ? recently ended. jj Wo think It Bafo to say, however, that 3 unless something now wholly unforeseen should bo developed, thcro will bo a turn k of the tido during tho present year. Immi Jt gratlon, as tho records show, largely do ;J pends on conditions of labor and of living $ In other countries as compared with our f own. Tho hard times of tho past fi few years have been reflected in tho im ' , migration record; and wo may therefore . i expect that when tho news of tbo pros is ' pcrity on which wo have now entered be 'g comes thoroughly known in tho Old World 1 we shall find its people flocking hither In . great numbers, as in former times. if Two Sorts. yi A very clear line runs through Democratic ffi ( criticisms on tho Maryland platform. Such r-v. newspapers as were originally for free f ' silver becauso they believed in it, dc pP spiso the Maryland platform as a contempt ' Iblo trick and as a cowardly evasion of the g, principles to which Its authors are at ii tached " In common with tho Democracy of the Union." Tho Democratic newspa- . pers that pralso It aro thoso which, prl- or to tho Chicago Convention, had de ijs' nounced free silver as cither folly or fraud, $t and had then abandoned their convictions S to follow Bryanism on tho plea of regu ( larity. These latter journals showed them 's solves to be devoid of principle a year ago," .and evidently they have gained nothing Jf -since. The difference between their aver i "Ion to free silver now and their aversion j to it a year ago is that formerly they spoko Jjft with apparent resolution, but now ono ft hears merely a feeble whimper from tho MP ' mouth of proven subjection. - ' "Weyle'r's Iiast Ditch. ,(1- Two or thrco weeks ago the revolutionists f$ began an active campaign against tho city t'of Havana. It was conducted after tho fashion of an irregular siege. They at- ft tacked tho suburban towns that environ ;' the place, fell upon such bodies of the en- ff emy as came out of It, Interfered with Jb-, the carriage of supplies into it, and B cut the lines of tho railroads that 5 enter It. Their conduct was defiant; their successes wero of almost daily oc- "fa currence. WuYi.Eimevermovedoutngalnst them ; ho never employed tho great army ,. garrisoned at Havana in driving them oft a or destroying them. Tho revolutionists ; flred guns that frightened the people of 5 tho city; they blow bugles tho blasts of ?jF nhlch were heard in tho Campo do llarte. fk Ono of tholr leaders, Col. AnANao, sent to Wbyler a communication filled with tho '&, language of mockery, taunting him in tho ;. best Spanish style. W. tno "rHt weck of this month, when tho W 'In8urgcntswcre exceedingly activo around Pt "Havana, AVbyi.eh suddenly left the city, j aftornotifyingAliUMADA that ho was bound l for Matanzas, to crush tho rebels there. It ,ar,t nightfall that ho cut stick. Ho ."rjld not travel by tho strum cars, ij though thcro aro two lines of railroad 4 'between Havana and Matnnzos, and tho . trip is a very short one, taking only three H x1rour8, I Kot "hoard tho Spanish Htcnm- 6 ship Vosco Nunez, whero ho was aata from J& the rebels, and wont by sea to Matanzas, a t, itronglyfortlfled place, whero thirty Span ish battalions awaited his coming, Tho IHaria tie la Marina informed tho world ? that It was .his purpose to take tho rebels In tho rear, cIoho In upon them, and V muko au end of tho slego of Havana. 5 In thli case his strategy was to bo of the kind which ho has always fa- vored. a kind which precludes thu en SI. omj's escape. Many a tluio he has set out for Gomkz's rear, nnd Gaucia's, and Dklrado's, and Ai.kjandiio ItoDiuavuz'd, nnd Cahtillo's, and Quinti.v Handluah's, and, though hu has often caught sight of tho m rebel front when looking for tho rear, that if ' clrcumstanco hiw never shaken his faith In li tho strategy which ho learned lit Toledo. if " was on tho morning of Aug, 4, after a "iRl't voyage, that Wkvm:h landed at .' ilntonzas, regardless of tho rebels then I engaged In besieging tho Cuban capi- ', ta'i 'ron' which he had mudo his ewape. i Wo have uot yet received a trustworthy re- ' Prt nf ! week's operations at Jfatnnzas; 1 but there Is very little doubt that tho In- , siligents drovo his battalions behind tho i furtltlcatlonsof thoelly. m Meanwhile AVkylfu received Intelligence if' ,lmt ,ic' Maximo Gomkz was on the IV march, with reinforcements drawn from tho WS IwUl, w tuat " lu-jurgent force had left rinar del Bio for somo other place, prob-' ably to Join Gen. Oaatillo. So It seems that Matanzas woo no better for Weyler than Havana was a week ago, or than Santiago was a montli ago, or than Santa Clara was In tho early dnys of June. Tho insurgents near Havana have not lost any time; they took advantago of the situation. Af tor Wgyled left tho city to contend with tho enemy nt a dlstanco they seemed to bo oven more activo than they wcrowhon ho stayed thcro. They had a stirring week, driving in tho Spanish out posts, harassing tho city's suburbs, and lighting within sight of Us ramparts at Marfnnao, nt Colon, at La Chorrera, at Arroyo Apolo, and at other neighboring places, capturing Spanish troops, gather ing in Spanish flags, and exhausting tho Spanish patience of Gen. Ahumada. Whllo nt Matanzas, Weyi.ek ascertained that thcro was no better chanco of Tlctory thcro than thcro had been at Havana, and bo ho fled from tho former placo back to tho latter by a safo route. Ho still avoids tho danger sido of tho city's bulwarks, refusing to run any of the risks that ho would Incur If tho revolution got sight of him. It looks as though ho wero looking for tho last ditch. Tho Slimmer Orntory of this Adminis tration. Not tho least Interesting feature of tho American system is tho semi-official, non political specchmaklng which sets in with hot weather, and without which the vaca tion rest of tho President and his Cabinet advisers nevcrsccms to bo entirely recrea tive. At tho beginning of a new Administra tion, that Is to say during tho first summer of a President's term, public Interest In his llghteruttcranceslsstlmulatcd by curiosity. People aro watching to sco how tho now Administration's vacation rhetoric com pares with that of Its predecessors for read iness, gracefulness, and wit. Singularly enough, tho nonpareil sum mer specchmaker among recent Presidents was Gen. Br.NJAMlN HAnntsoN, a states man of whom littlo had been expected In that lino even by thoso who know him well. Ho astonished tho country and earned undying fame by the aptness of his small occasional speeches, tho freshness and vnrlcty of his thought, tho humor and imagination which invested with a peculiar charm his remarks upon tho most Insignifi cant subject. Thcro has been no President since Lincoln who could mako a more in teresting off-hand speech than Gen. Hahri son. Mr. Cleveland, of course, compared with him in this respect as a porpoise com pared with a flying fish. If Major McKin ley can approach Gen.IlAnmsoN's success, without equalling it or surpassing it, ho ought to bo satisfied. Will Major McKinley be able to do Itf That remains to bo seen. The season began on Thursday in Vermont, where tho Presi dent was entertained at Proctorby tho dis tinguished Senator of that ilk. For an exact report of Major McKinley'3 remarks at Proctor we aro Indebted to tho enter prise of tho Aletr 1'orA: Tribune. It was evening. Tho grounds nround Senntor PnocTon's house were elaborately illumi nated with colored electric lights. A stand ' had been built for the first formal test of the President's powers as n summer orator. He mounted tho platform In company with his host and Secretary Aloer, and to an audience consisting of about two thousand citizens of Proctor, together with several hundred who came on an excursion train from Rutland, tho President delivered the subjoined address: "FEtxow Cmzust Mr rtitt (It jtm ago, to which Sen&tor Proctor hu alluded, wm a most pleas ant one, aDd, therefore, X am glad to renew my ac quaintance with you. I am glad to tee about me the mt n and women of thhi Tillage, accompanied br their girls and ltojs. There 1ft a luggestlon here of tbe family. Where virtue abldei la the family, and It 1 tho foundation of a family. I trust we shall always preserve our homes. Thence comes good citizenship. I am glad to enjoy tho hospitality of your distin guished Senator once more and once more to recetTe such abundant evidence of your good wllL Good night." Tho Important part of tho speech, as we hardly need to point out, is tho central sen timent concerning virtue as the foundation of family life, and tho preservation of our homes as the source of good citizenship. The genesis of tho Idea is apparent from what precedes It. Major McKinlky ob served from his elevated position upon tho stand that many of tho men and women who had gathered to hear him were accom panied by their children. As ho just ly remarked, there appeared In this clrcumstanco u suggestion of tho fam ily. Thenco ho was naturally led on to generalize concerning tho influenco of family and of home in tho maintenance of our institutions. Tho development of tho argument is orderly and logical, and It would bo a bold or an insincere mind which should undertake to combat tho President's propositions; yet wo cannot truthfully say that tho result Is particularly striking. But, after nil, it is only a beginning. It Is probable that in this difllcult and to blm unaccustomed Held of summer effort, wherein every utterance of tho Chief Mag istrate Is scrutinized by millions of pcoplo with an attentive interest not always be stowed upon tho most momentous docu ment of State, Major McKinley Is ham pered and embarrassed by the fear of say ing something beneath tho dignity of his office. Tho effect of such apprehen sions is to paralyze tho Imagination aud to shackle tho speaker's tongue to tho hopelessly commonplace. Thcro Is no need of such restraint upon Major McKinlhy'h summer oratory. Ho should study Gen. Harrison's littlo speeches as a model to Imitate, and review Mr. Cleveland's simi lar efforts as an cxamplu of what is to bo avoided. l"or a man of genuine Impulses and unaffected, unpretentious habits of mind, thero is no more danger in giving free play to fancy, wisdom, and wit when standing under colored electric lights upon a structure of planks In tho presence of a couple of thousand fellow citizens, all his friends, than thero Is when sitting on tho seat of a buckboard alono with that en gaging and stimulating companion, tho pit-Mcnt Vice-President of tho United States. American Crow's for Our Ships. Tho statistics of tho personnel of tho navy for tho last year, showing 85 per cent, of Americans by birth omaturallzutlon, aro ery gratifying. Wo may perhaps ascribe the decided increase in this percentage over former returns In part to thowiso pro vision nindo not long ago for enabling for-i'tgii-horu enlisted men to become natural li'tl with Icks trouble. Wa ao tihvuys had many snllors of foreign birth on our warships. Karly In tho century tho British impressment sys tem caused Its victims to have fow scru pies about deserting, and wo got our hharo of tho dchorters. Then tho higher pay both lu our nuvy and our merchant marine has always attracted foreign sailors, and they have been freely accepted. But tho Government naturally desires that thoso who settla down to service on our warships should bfceomo cltlxcns of tho country, and havo no allegiance but that to tho Stars and Stripes. In tho army it began long ago to encourage naturalization by allowing the tlmo passed in tho sorvlco to count toward tho period required by statute for receiving tho final papers; but In tho navy this privilege was denied until recently, and oven tho mer chant marine, wo bollevo, gavo greater ad vantages In this respect. Tho result was that In somo cases men were known to havo served on our warships twonty years without becoming citizens. Why should they lcavo tho navy, and there by rcuounco tho ndvautages of con tinuous scrvlco, in order to secure citizenship) Tho sailor Is liable to go from ono country to another, in his calling, and to enlist under ono flag after another, so that ho is tho less tempted to change his natlvo alleglauco unless ho Is tolerably sure of passing his llfo In tho scrvlco of somo other Government. It will readily bo seen, therefore, why up to recent years so largo a proportion of tho enlisted men of our navy havo been aliens. Ono help to change tho proportions was tho lucreaso in tho number of tho apprentice lads. Of late, also, havo como ameli orations In tho lot of tho enlisted men, which have mado scrvlco tinder tho flag rathcrmoro at tractlvo to natlvo Ameri cans, although theso latter are often drawn off to other occupations. Finally, thcroaro tho special efforts to induco aliens In our service to becomo naturalized and tosmooth tho way for them. That our American ships should havo American crews bos lately been greatly de sired by tho Navy Department. In tho nrmy tho number of men applying for en listment has been .o largo of lata years that Congress has felt justified In consider ing acccptanco as a privilege, and so con fining it to Americans. In tho navy it is not so easy to get a superabundance of good men; but tho high perccntago of Americans now shown is most satisfactory, and tho future tendency will bo to mako it higher. Commlttco and Party. Reports of dissensions In tho New York Democratic State Committee in regard to tho platform to bo adopted when tho com mlttco meets, somo time in September, are sent out with much frequency and industry. Evidently tho weak-kneed brethren in the committee are anxious to sound Democratic opinion and seo if it will support them in sneaking out of national issues. If they could only hear tho Democrats in a good number of counties praying them to make the next canvass on Stato Issues, provided any such can bo found, they would bo easy in mind once more. They havo not heard any such prayers as yet, and they aro not likely to hear any. Tho Democrats of this Stato havo not shown any disposition to run away from national issues. They are not ashamed of them or afraid of them. They knew what they were voting for In 1800 and they havo not changed their minds about it since. Tho "local Issue" and "Stato issue" tricks aro mere Mug wump falso pretences, such as do not ap peal to any cousiderablo element of any party and to the Democratic party are posi tively irritating. Whatever aro its follies and Itsdeluslons, thcBryanlzcd Democratic party believes almost passionately in its creed, and has no thought of suppressing It to stilt anybody's convenience. Not much importance need bo given to tho proceedings of tho Democratic State Committee. Presumably it will represent tho wishes of tho majority of New York Democrats. Thero Is no doubt what thoso wishes are, although somo of tho commit teemen might prefer to havo a two-faced and evasive platform. Democrats, whether on tho committco or not, who expect to retain any influenco In tho Democratic party, will not be found counselling a luke warm or deceptive course. Tho Chicago platform continues to ho tho Democratic policy, nnd tho New York Democracy has no intention of resigning at the present time from national politics. Nomination by Canvass. The canvassing for signatures to a peti tion to a man to run for an office he craves has been carried on in New York indus triously nnd nt great expense for several months past. Tho canvassers aro hired for the purpose and paid according to the num ber of signatures they get. or they receive a stated wage. In providing a gainful occu pation for needy men, tho plan, therefore. Is not without public sympathy. It has given to men, presumably deserving, the means of making an honest living, and, ns they havo been kept at tho work steadily since spring, it bos enabled them to support In comfort, If not luxury, the wives and chil dren dependent on them. Tho initiation of this novel method of provldingemployment for the indigent may prove valuable in suggesting to the Charity Organization Society and charltahlo socie ties generally a schemo of bonevolenco which will avoid tho degradation conse quent upon direct oluiHgiving. Tho great problem of charity is how to give, without, breeding the spirit of pauperism; how to re lleve want, without cieatlng and stimulat ing professional beggary. If, then, tho plan of soliciting a nomination to public office through tho ngency of a regularly and prop erly remunerated corps of canvusscrn, now employed In tho Interest of Mr. Low, shall bo introduced generally Into politics, its originator may become renowned among philanthropists as a practical public bene factor. It may bo that tho Chairman of tho Citizens' Union encouraged its intro duction, in view of n result ho deslr nble, for ho Is an active spirit lu the chari table organizations of tho town, and under stands thoroughly tho difficulties of tho complicated problem with which they deal. If Mr. Low finds It profitable to hire can vassers to go about soliciting signatures to a petition asking him to run for office, why should not tho plan bo adopted generally by men ambitious of political distinction J It is a modern improvement on tho plan of a man's announcing himself as a candi date for ofllco and thereafter going ou tho stump to drum up votes, a method still fol lowed in Homo parts of this country, more particularly tho South, Tho aspirant pays for nn advertising card In the papers of his town or district declaring his candidacy. The origin of complaints mado against political "machines" Is in tho disap pointment of otllccseckers whoso craving they refused to gratify. Men who havo been rejected by the machines, in splto of their deslro for nomination, uro aggrieved in consequence, and rlso up In wrath agninst tho nominating system ns essen tially vicious. This feeling of disappoint ment and exasperation Is tho germ of tho malady now known osMugwumpcry. Kvcn If tho machine will not uomlnato a man, thero is nothing to prevent his nominat ing hluwclf. Ho has that privilege under tho laws and tho Constitution. Ho can proclaim his candidacy by advertisement In tho nowspapcrs, by handbills, by post ers, or In circulars sent through tho post. But tho Low method of canvassing for signatures to a petition begging him to run is better than all these, or, at any rate, It supplements them very effectually. If an aspirant for public ofllco has tho money to hire a corps of canvassers, ho can becomo a candidate by petition and laugh at bosses and machines. Thus nomination for ofllco Is extricated from tho complica tions of primaries and conventions and put within the reach of ovcry man who Is ablo to cngago a forco of cncrgctlo canvassers whoso zeal in tho chaso for signatures to his petition can bo stimulated by making tho amount of their pay dependent on tho number of names they got, Mr. Low, accordingly, may be ft bene factor of tho kind of whom ho who makes two blades of grass to grow whero ono grow before Is tho illustrious typo, no may bo tho originator of a now profession, by which thousands of his fellow beings may bo rescued from tho smart aud tho ache of poverty. If every man who wants public ofllco adopts tho Low plan of canvassing for nomination by petition, tho profession of political canvassers will bo ono of tho most crowded of Industries. Humane pcoplo will encourago tho de velopment of tbo new industry, sinco it will cost them nothing except signing their names. Tho demand for tho can vassers will bo steady, for no year passes when there aro not political offices to bo sought for, and tho four or flvo months' work Mr. Low has given thoso In his em ployment might bo extended to Includo tho whole twelvemonth. Thero Is an Idea in this which tho philan thropists should work out. Tho Facts Abont Mr. Ijow. " Wo nro not for Mr. Low," says Commis sioner Willis of Brooklyn, "as tho candi date of a hostllo political organization, declaring in tho samo breath with which they nominate him that tho Republican party has no function to perform with re gard to municipal affairs." Tho Citizens' Union politicians, with whom Mr. Low Is distinctly and insepara bly identified, aro host lie to the Republican organization to tho point of lunacy, and their fundamental principle is that tho Re publican party bos no function to perform with regard to municipal affairs. ThoClti zens' Union Insists upon the entire separation of municipal government from national and State politics. It invites every man to join It "without regard to his opinion as a Republican, a gold Democrat, a silver Democrat, or as a member of any national party whatever," or, we must presume, as a believer in any conccivablo theory distinguishable from that of tho divorce of municipal affairs from other affairs. And Mr. Low is one of them. He Is running, not as a Re publican or as an opponent of Tam many, but on a platform of personal virtue, of superiority to partisanship, and of absolute freedom and irresponsibility to anything except his own opinions. Ho has announced that he is "heartily in sym pathy with tho purposes of the Citizens' Union," as he understands them. For tho Republican party's purposes, principles, fortunes, nnd prestige, or for the idea of de fending tho city of New York against Bry anism, ho doesn't at present care a copper. On the Citizens' Union platform Mr. Low could stand for nomination at the hands of Tammany Hall as easily as for nomination at the hands of tho Republicans.

No man of feeling will fail to bo moved by the declaration In tho Ohio Populist platform that "this republic cannot be pinned together with bayonets whllo injustice, rules tho land," nnd that "it Is tho duty of tho wliolo peo ple to sco that opportunities for employment nro open to all." Tho cry for tho Initiative and referendum will bring tears to many eyes, nnd the remark that " no millionaire plutocrat " Is lit tn sit in tho United States Senate will be applauded by somo of tho parsons who do not ndmlro tho Hon. John It.

A largo prop was pulled from under Pop ulism when tbo IntltnnnpaliK Sentinel rose to tlonounco tho proposition " to tax farmers and laboring men on their life insurance policies."

Alas that tho Iniiianapolia Sentinel should bo chargoablo with backsliding I Tho Hon. William Morris Stkwart of Novada is reported as saying that " there Is nothing In talking sliver at the present time." As Mr. Stkwart has probably dono nioro talk ing about Bilvcr than has been dono by any other man, this admission is not without In terest. At tho same tlmo it will be difficult for him to froo himself from the force of habit, and so tho Crluio of 1873 muy not escape denun ciation at Washington next winter.

JoffifAa Irith'TTorltt, Those political parasites, the Mugwumps, hare served notice ou the Republican party ot New York city that It must nominate their candidate for Mayor of Greater Now York. Numerically too weak to form separate party, their prozramino Is to frlf Men tin Republicans Into submitting to their dictation. Hero w'o have tho Mugwumps enacting tho old rote In which they have so often appeared. In 1884 they played It first In the Interest of Orover Cloveland. On this occason the Democratlo party was the victim of Mugwump alliance. Thanks to the efficient ballot stuffing of John Y. McKane, now a convict In Sing Sing, the Democratlo party gained a victory which It has had good reason to regret ever since. And now, after twelve years, the Mugwumps are again trying to pnsh themselves, their principles, and their candidates to the front. They hare selected as their candidate a gentleman who first wonthelrre gard by doing what he could to bring about tbe defeat ot James O. Blaine in 1884, although at the time Mr. Low held a political office, to which be bad been elected by a part? whose regularly nominated candi date for the Presidency he was doing his best to de feat. Most persons would characterise such conduct as pollttcal treachery. Mr. Low has added not a little to his Influence among the Mugwumps by showing himself overxeal ous for England's Interests, as shown by the part he played as Chairman of the Cooper Unton arbitration meeting. A candidate with a record of this kind could not fall to be acceptable to tbe Mugwumps. How he would fare at the hands ot the voters on elec tion day Is another question. The pitiable plight to which the Democracy has been reduced by having Cleveland and Clevelandlsm forced upon It by the Mugwumps should serve as an Impressive warning to political leaders who may feel tempted to court the good will of these political Uit landers, whose opposition Is not half so dangerous as Is their friendship.

Considerable excitement prevails In the neighborhood of Sandy Dottom, near this place, over the appearance of what is reported to be a volcano. The farmor on whose place the erup tion Is In progress has tried In vain to subdue It, and has set a force ot hands at work digging around tbe spot with a view to ascertaining the cause of tbe strange appearance. The crater Is about twenty-five feet square, and In live places blue smoke can be seen issuing from tbe ground, Tbo ground about the eraler has sunk about two feet below the level. It Is said to ba sinking gradually, and the crater Is growing larger. JIany people havo visited the spot, and it Is said the oprnlngs have fre quently been sounded to tho depth of ten feet. The Inside Is reputed to bo like a bed of ashes and the smoke Is blue. Frequent rains have failed to exttn linguist) the subterranean fires.

From the Wathtna Star, When tbe first white settlers arrived at Wathena In 185S they found an old chtef with quite a field of ripening corn. One Mr. Bryan (another sliver coinci dence) offered the chief tl a row for twenty rows of the corn, which offer was accepted. Mr. Bryan handed him a 180 gold pleoe. The old chief looked It over carefully and then laid It down at Mr. Bryan's feet and walked away.

A Cenaldertlen at npm Reasons tor So Being nnd erseme Resmlla. To mie Kditor or Tun Sun-SO: Tho nrtlclo in to-day's BUN on New York streot nomenclature Is interesting from beginning to ond, but more particularly, I think, in its references to tho chango of nnmo ot various of tho thoroughfares doscrlbod in that con nection. Without exception tho changes made appear to havo been cxpedlont nnd sensible. (Wall, also, by tho way, Is ono of our rennmod streets, it having been originally Wacl.) Hut, coming down to our own times, tho changing of street names seems to havo becomo a nisnln. Somo ronton Is always given for tho chango, to be sure, but tbo reason Is goncrally trivial, Too often. Indeed, tho now nnmo has nothing whatever that Is discoverable to commend It, whereas tho old ono may havo boon lit In ovcry eonso of tho word. Too ofton, too, when tho nnnm Is not changed entirely wc find "nvcnuo" that much abusod word in Btroet nonienelatura substituted for "Btreot" or "road." For In Btnnce: In a Riitnirli of n Western city less than n thousand miles from hern I hern uod to be n lloldfaco road, bo named from BoUfiu'o Creek (with which it ran parallel), width latter took Its nnmo from an Indian nioro or less celebrated In tho border days of Hint loctlon. lloldfncr- road wns not, nor la It now. a particu larly prctcntiotia thoroughfare, but, notwith standing thnt nnd tliofnrt Hint It wns described in the street directory nf tho town referred to, nsnlmoln Itslnmnpost slgnn. as iloltlfnro road, Its resident! persisted In railing It llnldfaro ave nue. Finally thoy got tho name changed en tirely, and now whnt wns lloldfaco road Is Lin coln avenue. This, however. In mv hmnblo opinion. Is Immeasurably better than lloldfaco avenue. It Is ntnnyrato no longer Incongru ous. For, though Lincoln tho statesman, llko lloldfaco tho warrior, was born a bnckwoods man. tho palefnco becamo known of all men upon tho avenues nf a great nat Inn's rapltnl nnd In Its grandest halls nnd Its highest councils; whereas tho red man's "avenues" wore solitary trails through tho wilderness of the valley nf the Ohio, his halls rudotontn of poles and wild leasts' skins, and his councils tho powwows of the camp fire. Hut what fa to be said of tho misguided per snnswhoaro rcsnonsiblo for tho change of this street's namo J Hid thoy foar. perchance, wlinu, hnvlntr occasion lo mention their home address, that tho dolgnntinn of " rtmd" for tho thorough fare In which they lived might unhappily convoy tho imnrcsslon that their domiciles wero out in the woods, rcmolo from aristocratic surround ings, nnd destitute of "nil tho Improvements" I And waB tho noble, picturesque, historical, nnd appronrlalo name of lloldfaco too common for them f Did It seem to them to be of lonly origin, and uot high sounding enough, forsooth I Hut wo don't have to go so far nwny from home as lloldfaco Creek tn find this misuse in street nomenclature of tho word "avenue."

Nevertheless, they nro not taking any strolls In tho woods. Thcro Is a boar, how ever, and he hns boon seen by several persons who oro pronounced sobor when thoy told their story. A week ago while tho guosts wero dining at David Sawyer's hotel, Tho Willows, thoy heard tho piano in tho parlor giving forth all sorts of Bounds. First thcro would bo n thun derous boom from t lie bass notes, as If some one had struck tho kc)s witli a slcdgo hammer. Then tho unseen and unknown player would runup nnd down tho koya of tho Instrument with tho touch of a pilu driver. Tho plana shrieked and groaned, clattered and growled. Tho artist on tho stool wns without doubt, cither drunk or intent upon demolishing tho Instru ment. As a matter of fact, though tho entertainment did not show It, the iicrformor had ono of tho chief requisites of a first-class musician. That was a wealth of hair that l'adcrowski would envy. A bear was the drummer, nnd it was having n great tlmo. It had been traveling nlong tho hot and dusty road on n Htoiuacti empty, savo n fow huckleberries, and tho shnily retreat of Tho Willows offered a haven of rest- It walked into tho yard, unobserved, on all fours nnd entered tho parlor. After lines! i gating tho contents of tho room anil llnding nn ono it investigated tho piano. It braced itself against the stool and, rising on Its lilml legs, ran itBpaws on the keys. Occasionally tho claws would catch, nnd Ilrtiin, nngrynt such impurti noncc, would bnngdown upon tho h orles as l( lio were trying to annihilate them. TThohruto was enjoying Itself Immensely, wag ging Its bend from sido to sldo when Mr. Sawyer nnd Botuo of tho guests cntorrd tho room to as certain tho cause of tho piano's discordant.

They bar ricaded tho doors with furniture and awaited developments In fear and trembling. Tho entrance of tho party distracted the at tcntlun of bruin. Through tho open dining room door came the odor of a savory dinner. It, struck the hungry animal's nostrils with mag nellu forco, antl dropping on all fours tho brown body mado a rush for tho dining room. Its progress was not hindered by tho gentlemen of tho party. A sight of thoso glistening teeth, red tongue, and cavernous jaws dispelled their courage. Tho bear wrought havoc in the dining room. It ate everything there was In sight, stuck its noso in tho mustard pot, tlppod ovor the gravy dish, aud smasliod crockery. Its hunger was appeased, however, and when tho attacking party, who had obtained woapons In tho sbapo of pitchforks, shovels, clubs, tec, camn Into the room determined to kill or ba killed, Ilruln waa very much astonished. What had ho dono that thoy should come nfter him withallthoseclubst Hcdidn'tmakoamore. and prepared to enjoy a good after-dinner slumber. Then, for the first time, ono of the party no ticed that a red, white, and blue ribbon was tied about Ita neck, nnd It dawned upon them that tho bear whb an escaped pel. They took courage in ono hand, grasped pitchforks flrmly in the other, and got a rope tied around tho interloper's neck. There waa nothing but meek submission on tho bear's part, and It walked lo barn as if it desired todonolhlngelso. Mr. Sawyer kept tho bear two days. Then he was obliged to release tho captive on account of a threatened famine. The prisoner in tho barn nto as much at ono meal as the hotel guests con sumed in a week, and Mr. Sawyer was obliged to frco him or go into bankruptcy. A man who was walking along the road yes terday met tho bear. The pedestrian did not stop for a closo view of tho brute, but took to his heels, an action which Bruin viewed with disapproval. Tho traveller reported his adven ture at The Willows, and the piano player waa recognized. The Tsetse Ply Found Innocent.
