Russia, who remembered tho troubled reign of
Catherine II. of Russia, and had lived under six
Czara, thrco of whom were assassinated.
Greengard remembered all tho wars of this
century, but best of nil he liked to talk of the
Polish Insurrection of 1831. in which he took
a hand, and for which he was over after
under suspicion. Six children. 30 grand
children, 58 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren
survive the old gen
tleman. The surviving children are Abra
ham Greengard. 72 years old: Sirs. Anna

Tho boys nnd tho dog had beon spending tholr

" It's a groat country for coons up thoro," said

could seo all right.
" We went In there more than a mile, I guess,
and Oarlos was on ahead of us when we heard
tho nwfullest noise, like dogs fighting, Charloy
and mo hurried on, and got to a creek, and tho
water was flying llko n fountain. We got close
to the creek, and thoro wo could see that It was
Carlos nnd what looked like four other doga
hanging to hltn whorover they could got a hold

" You run first!" Interrupted Charley at this

"1 only run to get a club!" explained Fred.
And then I Been you running and I run. tool
But my coon It huug onto me, and Charloy's

tumbled on top o' me. And maybo that wasn't
n lucky thing, for we grabbed stones nnd ham
mered tho coons loose, and pounded 'cm till
tbey keeled over on tho ground nnd laid

stones and went back to get Carlos. Ho

A CHINESE BRIDE IN TOWN.
The First Ward Is Barer to Greet tier but Uer
nnaband Won't Let Uer Oat.
Charley Sing, a Chinese lanndryman, of 128
Broad street, bos stirred up First ward society
by marrying a Chlnose woman and taking her
to live In his laundry. There aro not many
residents In lower Broad street and news travels
fast there. When Mrs. Sing's arrival became
known, all the men, women, and children
flocked to see hor.
Mrs. Sing was at home only to women, accord
ing to Mr. Sing's orders, and the men and boys
had to stay outsldo ot the laundry. Sing built
a partition nt ono ond of tho laundry and put a
bunk and Mrs, Sing behind It. Mrs. Sing is a
pretty young Chinese girl 17 years old, has been
ln this country for six years and wears Oriental
costume. Sho speaks English very well, and
the women and joting girls who got In to seo
her were naturally much Interested in her. Tho
girls discovered that sho had never beon to
Coney Island or Centr.il Park, nnd they told her
about tbo fun to bo had at both places. Mrs.
Sing w as Intensoly Interested, and w hen some of
tbo girls proposed to tako her out Mr. Sing
ecowled and told them to lcao.
Ever since sbo hah boen installed In tho laun
dry Mr. Sing has kept her In the little parti
tioned room, and whenever ho catches her poep
Ingouthosajs lotsot things In Chlneso winch
make her run back. Mr. Sing gunnis tho en
trance to the room with a hot iron, nnd whon
men and bos slop to look In ho grips tho Iron
hard and scon Is at them. He talks to Mrs. sing
over tho partition.
Several of tho women in the vicinity who
know Mr. Sing well enough to talk with him
nskid him why ho didn't let his wife go out In
the evening with them. Ho told them that ho
did not proposo to lot bor out until ho got some
American clothes mado for her. hho Is ap
parently very anxious to grt out, ns sho Is
caught pocplng out of her littlo prison. On
Sunday night Mr. Sing took her out for a little
while. She was highly pleased, and one of the
oungmcnln tbo neighborhood offered to give
her u lesson ln riding n bicclo. Mr. SlngTiad
no objection, a ho was Interested In tho bicycle,
and as bloomers are put of hor Oriental costume
sho had no difficulty In mounting the hlcvclo.
Tho young man held her on and guided" her
around the block. This was enough of an
outing for her. Mr. Sing thought, and ho ordered
her back into tho house.
"It'sashamo fer that crass-eyed Cblneeman
tor be lupin' that broth of a. girl ln a box like
thnt. remarked a stout woman who was among
the group looking Into the shop Inst evening.
"If it was mo ho had, I'd soon tache blm that
marryln a woman doesn't make her a Bhlavo,"
rno byBtnndcrs bollovod the woman would do
so. Judging from her size.
It Is Baltf that Mrs. Hlng was a widow before
her marriage to Charley Sing. He docllnod to
talk with a reporter yesterday, when asked why
he kept his wife practically a prisoner and got
nil the neighbors talking about It. When the
reporter tried to draw him out he wielded tho
hot iron with euch vigor that the caller found
tho air outside much cooler.

YENTVRB ARRESTED IN MEXICO.
The Allecad Anarchist from Barcelona Cap
tared In a Dry Good store.
Crrr or Mkxioo, Sept. 3. Tbcpollco are hav
ing much trouble over the supposed Anarchist,
Venture, whom thoy arrested some time
ago. On last Monday they arrested a
man In a dry goods store who now has con
fessed that be U the Joseph Ventura who was ln
Barcelona at tho tlmo of the bomb throwing and
was exiled from the country. Ho docs not ad
mit, howover, thnt he is an Anarchist.
Venture was born In Hauvcscr. France, ln
1874. He left his native land to seek his fortuno
ln Spain, and there, according to his own story,
he fell among thieves, who not only wasted his
sustenance for him but brought Mm almost to
his doath.
Thojoungmnn talked to the police with ap
parent frankness, and the few thing-) he en
deavored to conceal ho soon found that the
police were already conversant with.
Nn compromising letters were found In his
quarters, but, upon being pressed con
cerning tho whereabouts of certain let
ters which he received In Jail at Bar
celona, ho ndmltled having destroyed them
on shipboard because they contained certain
statements which might be regarded as com
promising. Venture arrived in Vera Crux on May 27 and
started at onco for this city. Ho carried
letters of recommendation to persons in
thin city, nnd had no troublo In
securing employment. His conduct Blnco
thnt time, as far ns can be learned, has been as
correct as the. conduct of the nvcragc young man
of his class. It was learned to-day, however,
that Venture will be compelled to lc.ivo Mexico.
SOUTHERN REPUBLICANS.
Their Prospects Better Kverywnere Bxoept la
Virginia.
At no time since tho close of the civil war
have the prospects of the Republican party ln
the South been ns bright as nt present, after the
largo defections from the Democratic party to
populism and tho Increased development of
manufactures In tbo principal States south of
Mason nnd Dixon's line. To the student of
American politics it must seem somewhat sur
prising that Kentucky and Maryland, two
Democratic, strongholds, should have Repub
lican Governors, nnd that in Tennessee at
the last Presidential eloctlon the Republicans
should have polled 45 per cent, of the total
voto In tho 8tate, whllo they had SO per cent,
of It In Georgln, b'2 per cent, in West Virginia,
40 por cent, in Virginia, and 47 per cent, ln
North Cnrollna. besides polling 107.000 votes
for McKlnlcy and Hobart In Texas, n State ln
which the Republican vote in 1880 was only
B7.000; In 1SS8. S8.000, nnd In 189L'. 81.000.
Tho fact is lli.il iho Republicans huo been In
creasing rapidly in numbers and influenco in all
the States of tho South, particularly in thoso on
the southern border, with tho exception of two.
South C.irollnn nnd Mississippi, in which, by
constitutional provision, thero is a largo dis
franchisement nf colored voters. Tho chief
rausoof this change ls the growth of the Popu
list party, which ls a white man's pirty, and
has withdrawn many voters from the Democratic
candidates without getting man rci ruita from
Republican rinkn. In no Presidential election
since the close of tho civil war havo Iho Republi

Sthaccsb, Sept. 3. Tho perploxltlos of tho
Republican political situation ln Syracuso
woro straightened out this evening by tho nom
ination for Mayor by tho Citizens' Union of
Donald Dey, Uio Benlor partner of tho big dry
goods firm of Doy Bros, ii Co. Tho Citizens'
Union grew out of the gcncrul discontent with
tho mismanagement of municipal affairs and
Includes In its membership 1,000 of tho best
citizens of Syracuse, representing both factions
of tho Republican and Democratic partios. Tho
Democrats thn fall will undoubtedly renomi
nate Mnyor James K. McGulro. With tho Re
publicans dhltlod ho would lunc stood a good
ehow of election, having been elected two years
ago ln n triangular coulcl.
Previous to tho nomination of Mr. Dey by the
Citizens' Union, tho McKInley League, the Bel
den faction of tho Republican party, threat
ened, if a man not wholly Batisfnttory to them
wns nominated, to nuino a tnndltlato of their
own. There was albo talk of fusion with tho
Democrats. Donald Dey, however, though an
organization Republican, is n man against
whom tho Bclden people can Hnd no objection.
During his two terms ns President of tho
Chamber of Commerce ho was supported by
Mr. Holdcn's own newspaper, tho l'ont, without
lualitlcntloii as n public-spirited citizen. Ho is
eatibfnetory to tho Good Government clement
and naturally to .-cuator Hendricks and tho Re

port tho nomination heartily.
Mr. Hendricks, in un interview to-night, ox-prcs-cd
himself as greatly plen-nl with tho

Baid:
"1 shall support Mr. Doy for Mayor. I bo
llevo ho Is n strong candidate. Ho will have
my earnest aupport." '
'Iho Ssracubo 1'ost will declare for Donald

Mr. Dey Is a natlvoof Seotlnnd, but formanv

Hugh McLaughlin, tho Democratic leader in
Brooklyn, is determined to enforce discipline in
the ranks of tho organization this year more
stringently than ever before. Sinco his return
from Jamesport ho has been carefully looking
over the field, nnd hero nnd thero ho has discov
ered some weak spots which need repairing.
Yesterday he had a plain talk with some of the
district leaders, and told them thnt the candi
dates, big and small, would have to bo carefully
considered boforo being put in nomination.
" We must do nothing." Mr. McLtughlin s.ild,
"on this shlo of tho river that could hi anj wny
tend to weaken tho cit ticket. I would not liko
tOKeoany Democrat nominated for a county
ollkeoraplaeo un the Council or Aldermaiilo
til ket .igainst whom anything can ho slid."
It was guthcrcd from Mr. McLiughlin's re
marks that m. iny brand now- names would bo
found on tho Hrookljn ticket, nnd some of the
ancient war horses who hao been booming
themselves for various fat places during tho

PURROY XOT AFRAID.

Tammati).
County Clerk Henry D. Purroy said yesterday
of tho threat of tho Tammany leaders to secure
his expulsion from tho Dcuiocr.itlo State Com
mittee, of which he is a member:
" I hnvo had a good do.il of experience in this
line in my political career and 1 rather liko it.
Such a threat has no terror or novelty for me;
on the contrary. I laugh nt nnd despise it nnd
would glndly welcome its fulfilment. It shows
plnlnly tbe alarm of Shcohan ami his lick
spittles at tho roolt which Is taking shapo
against their management of tho Democratic
perty. If thoy tarry out this threat It wnl only
servu my purpose better than I could intsclf
and will place mo whero 1 wimt to stand before
tho public; and I would not bo surprised If It
should bo tho means of extending our Demo
cratic revolt ngnlnst Mieehnnlsm throughout
certain other portions of tho State ami of thus
helping to defeat tho cut-nntl-dricil candidate
for Chief Judgo of tho Court of Appeals."
