Bo ho returned to Vienna, r.hero tho tradition of his fascinations Iswoll enough founded to onduro In spite of tho pain ful dental of thorn which his prrsonco affords, Bocontlyho figured as Uio defendant in a suit withdrawn before It enmo to trial.

TWO W03IEN IX THE KT.OXDIKE. An Illinois Girl nnd Her Aunt Who Went There Alone and Staked Out Claims. This Is port of a letter written by nn Illinois young woman who started last summer on a tour of tho Ycllowstono Park with her aunt, caught tho Alaska fever, and went to tho Klon dike Tho two women madu tho trln by thorn- selves, most of tho tlmo without escort, and aro now at Dawson City: "Tho winter has passed rapidly, and I do not remember ovor at homo to havo experienced a moro ipleasant March. Tho days have been bright, sunshiny, and not at all cold. I do not know whether I told you In my other lotter that I am organM at the Cnthollc church. Wo havo a very good choir: two of-tho gentlomon ln tho choir aro from Now York, and sangln choirs thero; thoy have flno voices. Tho high mass wo aro practicing for Easter hossomo lieautlful solos in It Wo have a violinist who is a good musician, and tills adds much to tho music. Sunday is one of our busiest days. Aunt Lou plays tho organ at tho Presbyterian church. Wo both havo to go to choir prnctlco in tho afternoon and to church at night, so I told hor tho other day that between our re ligion hnd stampeding wo would bo used up. " I will havo to tell you about our last stam pede, which Is ono of tho hardest trips wo havo taken yet. Wo went down tho Yukon to a creek called Ballarat to stako, In company with Mr. and Mrs. Logan of San Francisco, who camo on tho same steamer with ub, but havo boen win tering noar tho mouth of tho Felly Blver. and only recently camo to Dawson. Wo left hero on Monday morning at halt past 0 o'clock. Aftor wo hnd gone about thrco miles tho wind began to blow and drift tho snow, so wo bad to break trail from tha on. which, was vory hard work. About eight miles out fitom Dawson wo stopped for lunch on tho river bank had a camp fire, cooked bacon, warmed our beans and made tea. nnd this refreshed us for tho rest of tho journey, which was to reach the only cabin wo could for tho night, twelve mllos fur ther on. We travelled along, still having to break trail, and flnully reached It, at half-past 5, prett well U9ed up. There wore only thirty three persons In the cabin that night, but as usual tho men were solicitous for tho comfort and welfare of the women; so after our sup pers we had our beds mado down on tho floor in ono corner and here soon rolled up in our blankets nnd slept well " The next morning wo wore up bright and early for the rest of our journey, about eight miles up tho creek. This was a hard trail, too, for If you stepped off tho trail you were likely to get your feet wot, und that is a serious thing ln this country. We mado It all right, however. Aunt Lou staking on No. 10 uo low Discovery and I on No. 10 above, two very good locations wo think: wo had tips on those leforo we went up. Mr. nnd Mrs. Logan had to go furt hor up tho crook, so Aunt Lou aud I started back alone. When wo wore within about threo mllos of the cabin wo were vory tired and hungry, nnd concluded wo would stop nt tho Indian v lllago to son it wo could got anything to eat. As soon as wo had stoppod into one of thelrskln tepees I think the entire village turned out to seo us. nnd thotepeowas soon tilled with men. women, babies, and dogs galore. One of tho young women understood English, so Aunt Lou handed hor some sllv or nnd said 'Something to eat.' Tho woman dropped her baby Into tho anus of an old squnw sitting near by. rushed out of tho tent nnd soon camo back with somo mooao meat, which sho proceeded to cut ln small pieces thoy have n llro In tho middle of these circular skin tepees, with an opening cut in tho top to let tho smoke out. She put on tho frying pnn with somo caribou fnt in It for Inrd nnd soon hud our meat cooking nicely, jop porod nnd salted It. asked us if we would have somo tea they uso no bread and this, with somo froren cranborrles. was our repast, and as wo were tired and hungry It satisfied us, and the novelty of tho situation repaid us for It also. Wo reached tho cabin In a short tlmo, and ufter a good night's rest wore ready for our return trip to Dawson. "It had snowed tho night before and was snowing when wo left In the morning. sow o had to brenk trail all the way again until wo stopped for lunch at tho old placo. After lunnh the snow censed, the sun enmo out, und the In dians who had boon to Dawson with tholr sleds nnd dog teams camo nlon, and as their sleds aro built llko a tolxiggan thoy rondo tho trail much better, nnd from then on wo made irnml time. Benching Dawson nt hnlf-Past II at night, wo recorded our claims next morning nnd sent thorn out by ono of the discoverers of tho crook who was going out over tho Ice to Chicago and Now Yoric to bo sold. If ho sells any : so you seo If wo do not make any money hero It is not becnuso of our luck of energy." a risitY hmaitj xmrtiuor.

Indeed, took possession of a box standing In front of a store in a downtown atroot, und spread his wares out upon it top. Ills stock was small, and to mako it reach from end to end of the top of tho box ho had to spread it out pretty thin. Tho papers only just lappod, and then ho stood silently behind tho box nnd waited for customers. A curious thing n!out tho small newsboy's stock, us It wns displayed upon this box, was that tho papers were nil put down with the tltlo heads along the outer edgo. neurcst tho passer-by, who. If ho looked at tho papers, saw from his point of view tho bottom of tho paper at tho top. at tho Inner edgo of tho liox, and tho top at tho bottom, near him. But tho papers looked all right to tho smull news boy standing bock of tho box, looking nt them from that point of view. Ha wasn't old enough yet to have realized nny.poliitof view but his own, He novor dreamed that thoy were bottom uptotho multitude. , , But tho next dny tho papers wore changed. Tho stock was still small, still sprend out thin on tho top of tho big box, but, the heads wort) now ranged uloiig the Inner edge of the box, at the top, where they should have been. Evi dently some kindly disposed person who hnd seen the stock on tho previous flay and hnd felt sorry for tho llttlo chop and Ills shut-ln-ness hail sot his stock right for him. The llttlo follow stood bohlnd tho box. no blggor In stature than lie was on tho day before, ana silent ns then, but with a now nnd proud In telllgoneolnhlsoyo, Tho next tiny ho was gone, nnd tho big box stood thoro empty, nnd the only way to account for that was thai the, proprietor of Hie store, who had made no objection to what pad ap poared to bo a brief and casual occupancy of tho box by tho smnl boy. had objected when tho small boy cavo signs of setting up a nows stnud thero. r jr ' . - il--"- -'''--""--- J-eaga!mlM . , j .. , J- bohe roksts wonrn RBAvrfti. f' Iletoei of WAr nnd J?ekee.

What laws havo been passed or attempted to bo passed abolishing convict labor? J. J. It. 1. Convict labor dates back to the earliest dajs of tho world, when a person who had injured another had either to recompense him ln monty orbecomo his slave. It la only recently. In fact, that there has been any opposition to convict labor; the idea alwaya has been: What's the uso of a convict If on can't lane hlni labor for you? 2. The State of New York passed a law forbidding convict labor; and later re pi sled part of It. The present Constitution of the State forbids convict labor and its products to lie fanned out, contracted, glv en or sold to any person, Ann, association or conioration.

Somo students of local politic protend that the New York Board of Aldermen, since the establish ment of tho Municipal Assembly, lis, under tbo pro visions of the charter, practically nothing to do. Bitch persons may now be reminded that by unani mous consent after a roll call, all members present answering to their names and being recorded ln the affirmative, John Dolan has been authorized by the Board of Aldermen " to erect, keep, and maintain on the sidewalk near tho curb ln front of his premises, 820 West street, a pole surmounted by a horseshoe." This permission ln revocablo at tho pleasure, not of the Board of Aldermen which granted It, but of the Municipal Assembly. Under the new Constitution of the Btate of Dela ware Wilmington Is entitled to two Senators and Ave Representatives In tho next General Assembly. Last year It had ono of each. The attention of those with unshaken confidence ln the deslro of the present Police Commissioner to en force honest registration at this j ear's election 1 called to the fact that applications for lodging house permit, allowing an additional number of Inmates to be entertained are being made and are being granted by tho Board of Health. The application for a lodging-houso permit at 105 Bowery provides for ltl3 lodgers, and the permit for 205 Eighth street la for 108, 331 lodgers ln two houses. Mayor VaHjWyck has appointed Jeremiah O'Don ovan Rossaan Inspector of Weight aud Measure for the borough of Richmond, a political honor tardily conferred upon a clttzcn-elcctor whose activity In politic began soon after his arrlv al here. Mr. Rosaa was a candidate for Senator ln what waa then known a the downtown district in 1871, twenty-seven year ago, and since then be has taken an active part in politics hereabouts, but uot usually ln the lwrough of Richmond. It Is a somewhat apt illustration of the familiar statement that tho world Is not very large that Mr. Rossa should have owed his appointment to tho efforts and recommendation of the Hon. Nlcholan Muller, who was a candidate on the satuo ticket with Mr. Rossa twentyseen years ago, Muller running for the Assembly ln tbo First district, which made up a part of tho Senatorial district ln which Mr. Rossa was running. Both were defeated by tho candidate of Tammany Hall, the organization which has secured for Mr. Rossa his present office on the recommenda tion of Mr. Muller, who, since ho has moed from tho First ward of New York to Staten Island, has been the recognized representative of Tammany Hall ln what 1 now the borough of Richmond. By what may, perhaps, be described a an acci dental peculiarity of American politic, there are State elections for Governor this year ln nearly all those Btates ln which the Populist iarty Is numerous. Thero Is an election for Governor In Kansas, the home of Populism, and oer tho ezecutlre destinies of which the Illustrious Leedy liresldes. There I an election for Go) ernor in Nebraska, one of the few States in which fusion between Democrat and Popu lists has been found to work. There is an election for Oovernor in Minnesota, in which the Populists ha e uniformly been strong since 1 S1K), and in which Llnd, the fusiou candidate, came within a fraction of winning In 18IM1, although McKluley and Ilobart carried tho State overwhelmingly. Thero Is an elec tion for Governor lu Michigan, where the Populist hav e alway been numerous, and there Ib ouo In Col orado, where they triumphed ln 181)2, and again ln 1806; and also in Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Wyoming, North Dakota, and Idaho. Idaho Is, per hsps, more Justly entitled to the distinction of being a strong Populist Btate than any other. Bryan polled ln It 23,000 votes, to 11,000 for McKlnley in 18Btl, and the highest Democratic voto previously was 7,000. At the tlmo of last year' report by the Pension De partment thero were six widow of Itnolutlonary eoldler on.tho roll. Of these six, four wero the wid ows of Virginia soldiers and three of tho bIx wero named Nancy, a female designation not now in so general use as It was a century ago.

The formal announcement is made that Assembly man Charles B. Adler is a candidate for the State Hi n ate ln the Eleventh district, now represented by Tim othy D. Still!) an. Mr. Adlcr is a Ri publican and was elected to the Assembly successively ln 181)4, ISna, 18IH1 and 18117, He hails from the one district In town In which there are factional divisions within the ranks of Tammany Halldiv Islnna which, by reason of Benator Sullivan's enforced participation In tin in, would operate to his disadvantage If a candidate.

The free baths In Centro Market plnco broke their record last Saturday, admitting 1081 bathers during the day. Tho accommodations aro small, and tho baths wero crowded to the utmost from tho opening to tho closing tlmo. On.8unday, tho worst day for beat that New York has known since 1H81 , thero was a triple lino of waiting men and boys extending ill tho w ay to Broome street, nnd hundreds wero turned away disappointed. A largo proportion of of them were Italians. Ab a rule, the laboring Italian is uot given to bathing very much, elthor for amusement or nny other purpose, but the Superintendent of tho Centre Market plucu baths has .succeeded In starting quite a movement among them nnd has had speclnl announcement unrds printed in Itnllnn for dis tribution In tho Mulberry street district.

Tliem nro atlll in lm found ono or two gardens in which tho prices stick at their old height and tho quality of the wares remains just as Iniquitous; but they nro exceptions. The reduced tariff lu tho matter of refreshments, is as much ns could bo oxiiected In one season ; an other season may produce tho desired com bination of pll excellences. There wero good reasons before the season opened to believe that any hope of Improvement In these places was vain, nnd It was only the final protest of tho publlo that resulted ln tho Improved conditions noticed this summer. After two seasons ln which these places .touched rock bottom Hi every particular, the pub lie made Its usual effective protest that showed Itself in empty chairs nnd nn equally empty treasury. Last jear somo of tho places wero without tenants, nnd nt the be ginning of tho present season that oxperloneo seemed likely to bu repeated. Hut ono open ing was made under circumstances so different from thoso of the pnst few seasons that the publla felt new Interest in this form of enter tainment Several othors hnve followed the example of tills root garden nt n distance and tho result has been a perceptlblo Improvement in all. That there Is still room for Improv ement nobody could deny: but there is ground for encouragement tills year in tho change, nnd attorn while these places of amusement may become as deslmblo as thoy ought to bo. Their cont Inued Improvement will of course depend on tho iwtronngo they rocelvo this summer. Com plete Indorsement of tho moderate Improve ments will bring then) to nu end. To ignore them will produce llnu discouragement in the managers. It will bo necessary, therefore, for tho public to presort 0 n careful mean. Lieut.
