Vice President of the UnltcdlsitatcSon
the eve of the festival. It was a start
ling telegram that brought that piece of
news to the public Wednesday. On
Tuesday Mr. Ilciultlcks was wcllenon.311
to participate In n social party J was
soon after taken 111, and steadily grew
worse until live o'clock Wednesday af
ternoon, lun he died. Thomas A.
Hendricks has been a man of note In
Indiana for neai ly forty 3 oars, and his
name has been completions In the af
fairs of the Federal fiovcrnnicnt for
inoro than thirty. Ills fellow citizens
of that State had conferred upon him
the highest political honors they had It
hi their power to bestow, long before
LU fellow-countrymen elected him fo
the second honor In their gift. He had
been a member of Hie Indiana Legisla
ture; a Delegate to her Constitutional
Convention of 1850; one of her Uepre
Bentatlves in the popular House in Con
gress; one of hcrSonators In the other
branch of Congress and Governor of the
State. For many, many years he has
been one of the foremost men of Indi
ana, If not the very foremost. Certain
ly he was down to his dying day the
foremost roan in Indiana within the
lines of the Democratic party. When
over a very strong man was required for
a party emergency mtlie otate tne great
mass of the Democrats turned towards
him a'S the ono only man whose active
canvass of the State, cither as a candi
date or on the stump, could make the
State reasonably sure for his party tick
et. His Democratic colleagues always
felt that, if assurance and safety were to
be found in any man.'s candidacy or can
vass, it would be found in bis. The re
sult usually lubtilicd that assurance,
thouEh not in every Instance. The
fact, however, demonstrated the confi
dence reposed In him as tub man who
could command the full strength of his
nartv vote and more. He was, indeed.
always stronger than his party when ho
was a candidate, a circumstance that
crew out of the strone personal eitceni
In which ho was held. Ono of the
strongest holds he had upon the public
was the result of tho profound personal
respect which was the most mirked
manifestation of the popular regard for
him. Ho did not rank among the pop
ular idols of his party, or among the
most brilliant statesmen, but lie illl oc
cupy a front rank in Hint group of dis
tinguished Democratic statesmen to
which Thurman, Tllden, Horatio Sey
mour and Samuel .1. lian.lall belong.
With tho masses of his parly he was
popular because he was a thorough-going
Democrat and strong exponent of
their Ideas. Ills death w 111 be widely
and most profoundly mourned,
Mr. Hmlrlck's death leaves tho Presi
dential succession once more a subject
of public Interest. The olllco of Vice
President will not be filled. When a
Vice President becomes President ho
assumes the office completely for the full
term for which lie was elected. There
being no Vico President, should tuo
office of President become vacant, the
President of the Senate or, if there
were none, tha Speaker of the House of
ltopresentatives for the timo being
would act as President until a President
tould be elected. Happily Mr. Cleve
land Is possessed of youth and health,
and there is no reason to anticipate any
political results from the death of tho
Vice Presl lent beyond tho loss of his
influence and example.

Special to the Cahuox Ahvocatj:.
It has frequently been my evil fortune
In the past, as a faithful scribe, to tell
the story of deserted whos and of ruined
homes, but never until this week has it
been my lot to record the cac of a wifo
who complained of too much alfectlon;
but u case of this kind actually occurred
hero a few days ago. A big boned,
brawny blacksmith was ninrrleif some
nine months ago to a sweet little crea
ture, and last week she went before the
magistrate to ask for a divorce nnd the
protection of tho Court. Has your hus
band abused you, Inquired the magis
trate. Oh! no, sir; the tearful wife re
plied. Does he fall to proUdo for you?
Oh, no, sir; I havo a very comfortable
Jioinc. Does he go off after other wo
men? Oil 1 no, sir; he always comes
right home as soon as he gets through
Ids work. Tben, madam, said the mag'
istiate, why do ou ask the Intervention
of this court, and why do you ask for a
divorce? She said that she did not like
to tell before nil the folkr, to thu-magls-
trate said -she could wliljor It In his
car; and the unfortunate wife declared
that her husband was so fond of her
that the moment he came in the house !
lie would catch her up In hit arms, and
carry her aboutllke a baby, lias he In
jured ou? said the magistrate. Oh!
no, sir; he would not hurt me for a
thousand dollars. Then, my dear mad
am, said the woudeilng magistrate, 1
ran do nothing for you; tills is the Hint
Instance In my ezperienee where a hus
band was complained of because he was
too affectionate but he lias had two
wives bfore, groaned tli unfortunate
iromau, and he killed them with kind

. Our Scandinavian population is about
tho best we li'AYift straightforward and
Industilous, they seldom quarrel among
themselves, and In business their names
are synonymous for honesty. Hut tho
contact with Americans does not seem
to Improve them very much, as was In
stanced In the case of n young Scandi
navian, who had only been, as ho de
clared few weeks in the country,when
he met a lovely young country-woman
ol his, whose father was very well to do.
Tho young man was a journeyman bak
er, and as he appeared honest nnd in
dustrious, and was a good baker, and
the gill's father was suspicious of Yan
kees, aft ir a fow week's happy court
ship, tho pair were married at the houso
of tho bride's parents, whero the jolly
young baker took up his quarters. The
morning after the wedding tho new
made husband informed his wife, that
if she would give him $200 he would
start a bakery for himself, as hnltnew
where there Was one for sale. Happy
In her now found love, the young wife
handed over the two hundred dollars,
when the husband gaVchls wife a live dol
lar bill out of tliu plle,and requested licr to
buy some things for him. She started
out to make the purchases, leaving her
husband In the house; as soon as she
was gone.her faithless spouo ransacked
every drawer and trunk, stole earrings,
linger rings, watches, brooches, pocket
handkerchiefs, In short everything of
nny value that he could lay his hands
on, and then departed. When the
joungwlfo returned, herhusband, her
money and her jewelry wcro gone.
Mouths rojled on and the trusting wo
man gave him up for dead thinking
that on his way to purchase tho bakery,
he had been murdered fo: his money
when to her great amazement about
three weeks ago, she met hlin on the
Hrooklyn Ilridge. She screamed and
ho dodged out of sight. A clue was got
to his whereabouts, and detectives were
placed upon his track. He was found
In Connecticut in one of the interior
towns, where he was living with a wife
and four children, and had been living
there for years previous. This enter
prising young foreigner was brought
back to Hrooklyn where ills offenco was
committed, and his chances are very
good for being boarded at the State's
expense for the next five years, at least.
Another merchant has gone a man
who leaves behind an honored memory
and a stainless name. Representing one
of the largest drygoods firms in the
United States, Horace U. Claflln leaves
behind him no bettcrman. Among tho
thousands of men In his employ you
hear ho word hut words of praise and
blessing. A tiuly religious christian
man, for forty years connected with
Plymouth Church, there was no puri
tanical sham or pretense about hlm,and
he was ono of the very few men on
whom tho great pastor of Plymouth
Church leaned for support. Charitable
to a degree untold, and blessed with a
wife who has been an nngel of mercy to
the community that was honored by iier
presence, it would seem that the man's
cup of happiness would bo brimming
over; but with all his wealth and nil of
his happy surroundings ho could not cs
capo the common lot of sorrow and
aillietlon. A few years ago, a son, who
was tho Idol of his heart, died, and he
never recovered entirely from the shock.
He had other griefs that wrung his
heait, and against which he bravely
battled, and In which he had the warm
est sympathy of all who knew him. His
death was the most merciful and pain
less that a human being can know. In
the midst of enjoyment, sitting at Ids
own table, joking with his guests, his
head falls forward on his breast nnd ho
Is gone. Savo that he Is lost to the
community that loved and honored him,
there Is nothing to regret about his
death, for among the two millions in
these two great cities, there Is not one
who was better prepared to go.
Comparisons havo often been made
between Mr. Claflln nnd the late A. T,
Stewart. No two men could possibly
have been more unlike. Mr. Claflln,
though a business man In the strictest
sense of tho term, was broad, catholic
and generous in his nature, regarding
himself only as a steward of God's
bounty, and he was always ready and
willing to render an account of his
stewardship. To the call of worthy
chaiity, his heart and his puoc were
never shut, nnd there arc hundreds of
ilrs.cn lug poor in this and neighboring
cities who will miss In tho freezing
weather now upon us tho generous
hand of Horace 11, Claflln. Mr. A. T.
Stewait lived only for himself, and, dy
1 11 lt. he had but one thought, and that
was to perpetuate his fame. Ho built
great factories and immense stores; he
founded Garden City and erected there
0110 of the most exquisite Gothic
churches to be found on the American
continent for his mausoleum; he left
the enormous gift of a million in gold
to a man hard and uncharitable as him
self whose very name Is execrated by
lie died surrounded by the gaudy
trappings of royalty, but not a sorrow
ing tear moistened the dead man's bier.
ICv en the eyes of the woman whom he
left one of tho richest widows iu Chits-
tendom were dry as powder. Not a sob
nor a sigh, not n tear, told tha passing
to eternity of the proud merchant prince,
fiut the wretched vanity of the man Is
punished, and even the post mortem
gift of a church and a college to the
llishop of Long Island will fall to rescue
his name from deserved oblivion. The
life of Horace I). Claflln was a benedic
tion, nnd ho dies blessed and honored
by nil who know him.
Slocks are booming
nothing like it for tho past three years,
Henry Clows says the boom lias come
to t'ay. Whether It has or not, the
Hulls Itnve had' a good time this week,
Up she went llvo or six points hi si
morning. Everybody Is smiling except
theehiQuIc boars, who never smile 0
cpt when everybody but themselves
are lulnwl. It Is a pleasant sight on
'Change thoe dajsjouoimoiij blocks of
stoek are sold, aud everybody seems
anxious to buy.
TJiero Is no doubt bat the big fish are
taking a hand In the market, and the
general public are going In too. Hlg
clous; the war In 1'urope, aud the In
creased earnings of the railroads woat,
with the probable settlement of the
long and disastrous railroad war, all
tUcac Influences have helped the market,
and ft may he that .Mr. Clews Is right,
and that tho boom has como to stay un
til It gets ready to leave.
Two singular cases of boycottlnghavo
occurred here, one In Now York and
the other In Hrooklyn, which will in-
doubtedly call more general attention to
this system than anything that has yet
taken place. Mr. Hitchcock, tho pro
prietor of the Fifth Avenue Hotel, em
ployed a number of men to paint In his
house. These men, though perfectly
satisfactory to Mr. ITltchcock were not
Union painters, and the Unton de
manded their discharge. Jfr. Hitch
cock refused, nnd the result Is that an
order to boycott the hotel lias gone out;
men are stationed about the street re
questing people not to patronlzo the
Fifth Avenue Hotel, and threatening to
boycott every person who docs; so far,
however, the effect has not been felt, as
only one patriot has been readied by its
Influence, and that Is Hen Butler,
Tho other Is more remarkable The
keeper of a German restaurant employs
11 number of waiters, these waiters do
not belong to the Walters Union. A
demand was made on them to join, and
ns they had been In the employ of Mr,
Louis A. Phillips for several years, thev
resolved not to join. Then a demand
was made on Mr. Phillips that he dis
charge them, and employ Union men In
their places; this Mr. Phillips refused
to do, saying that this was a free coun
try, nnd his men could join or not just
as they pleased. On this the order to
boycott Mr, Phillips has gono forth
not because he Is not a good employer,
not because he is not paying ample and
satisfactory wages, not because his em
ployees are not perfectly satisfied with
their employer, and ho with them, but
because, he will not compel them to Join
an association with which they have no
sympathy. It is a singular stato of
affairs In a free country to say the least.

The fellow wdio first came to an under
standing and formulated his knowledge
in the truism that "one half of tho world
doesn't know how the other half lives"
should have a monument. And I often
think that If the people who Inhabit the
globe really understood what struggles,
and trials, and hardships are constantly
besetting the "other fellow" our neigh
bor, there would have been no reason
for the writing of that other truism,
'Man's inhumanity to man makes
countless thousands mourn."
But that Isn't atall what I Intended to
say. I wanted to tell you something that
to many will bo a new Idea, and that Is
how salt was obtained In some parts of
the South during the troublous days of
the war. I got my Information from a
typical Southern gentleman of veracity
Ho said that it is a scientific fact that
salt rises to the surface of earth that Is
covered, and that wdicn salt was wanted
the earth from beneath buildings was
boiled and salt thus was obtained. Now
that was a clear case of "salt of the
earth," wasn't It?
The other day a Northern visitor ac
companicd me on a little stroll out In the
sunny lands, viewing the soil, (everybody
is viewing the soil down here nowadays)
wdicn we finally came to two potato fields
lying side by side. The tubers had main
ly been dug, but slovenly hands had left
many of them scattered about over the
surface of the ground. Two hogs, the
property of the planter, no doubt, wan
dered over the fields lna5'monarchof all
I survey" style that was quite refreshing
to soe. Selecting a fair-sized Irish pota
to my companion east It towards the
nearest hog, which nosed' it about, its
eyes twinkling In a knowing sort of way,
It finally turned from it In disgust, and
then looked appcalingly up into our
faces, as though Inquiring "What 're
yo' glvlu' ns, anyway?" Again and
again was the experiment tried with a
like result. Finally my companion burst
out laughing, and remarked: "Every
body and everything seems to be alike
down here. None of them seems to
havo any use for the Irish potato. Why,
the municipal government of that hog
instantly hung out the battle-scarred
banner, 'No Irish need apply.' "
"Better try 'em with some sweets," I
fo sooner was tho suggestion made
than It was acted on. A convenient
sweet potato was selected and tossed
towards tho anxious-looking, razor
backed hog who grabbed It with a grunt
of satisfaction, and disappeared around
a corner quicker than a railroad con
ductor could knock down a fare, or a
smart editor could write an editorial
with the shears.
"two looks asd a hoot."
"I stopped In a little town In Virginia
for a few days," remarked a new-comer
from the North to me recently, "and
while there I Inquired tho way to the
post-oftlce. JThc Inquiry was made of a
business man who promptly replied,
'Two looks up the street sir, and on the
right hand side,' I was a stranger and
didn't want to be too Inquisitive, and
so, without further questioning,! started
for the post-office. I could see up tho
street until a bridge shut off further
vision. That I concluded was one look.
I went to that point and looked again.
The street led up to a large building
which seemed to be tha end of the
second look, and I was correct. The
post-ofllce was there on the right-hand
sldo of the street.
Another Incident was told roe of a
similar answer that was mode to a man
who was traveling through the country
and who had strayed away from camp
and comrades. Tho direction ,to his
camp was given hlin, and he was told
that it was only "two looks and a hoot
over yan" from where he stood. Ho
measured off his first "looic," and then
took his bearings forthe second "look,"
which distance he soon passed over.
Then he was puzzled. He had come to
the "hoot" part otthedlrcctlon. After
pondering over the puzzling subject for
n few minutes he concluded that ho
would call to his companions. He did
so, and was rejoiced at receiving an
answer. He then understood that he
was within "hooting," or calling dis
tance of his comrades. "Two looks
and a luxit" meant two looks and a
Tha chances that already are beeln-
' ulng to te apparent in many parts of

Washington, D. C, Nov. 21, '85.
Mr. Eugene Hlggins, tho nppolntment
clerk of the Treasury depart mcnt,whoso
name has been mentioned In connection
with the House doorkccpershlp hts nev
er thought much of tho scheme. He
has, within tho past fow days, been
called upon by a number of Members of
Congress, who havo urged him to run
for the position of Sergeant-at-Arms,
He says that he would prefer that place
to the doorkeepershlp and Intends to
seo what, If nnythlng,ho can do towards
securing the caucus nomination.
Carlisle arrived hero this afternoon
with his wife. He was 111 by the rough
riding on the Baltimore and Ohio road
and took to his bed soon after his arriv
al, declining to see callers. His Illness
Is a mere nothing as he expects "to be
out to-morrow. He will remain here
until Congress meets. Ho will un
doubtedly hurry up tho coming of the
members, so that they can talk with
him as to their places upon the com
mittees. He Is so sure of his re-clcctlon
as Speaker that he will be able to devote
his leisure until the meeting of Congress
to the making up of his committees.
Much has been published during the
last eight or ten days about the chang
ing of the Houso rules, and elaborate
arguments have been made In favor of
dividing the work of the House Appro
priations Committee among the various
committees. Among tho strongest nnd
noisiest advocates of this are tho West
ern mcmbers.who have for years favored
the Hennepin Canal project. This
scheme for taking great sums out of tho
Treasury has been killed every year
through the Inability of its advocates to
procure a place for It upon any of the
appropriation bills. Nearly every man
who has had a job defeated In Congress
Is anxious to have tho Appropriations
Committee under Mr. Randall's econ
omical management broken down. The
House will be called upon to pass upon
this changing of tho rules at the very
outset of the session, and It is expected
that at least ten days will be given up
to this discussion. The people who flip
advocating the change profess to be
actuated by a desire to improve the
method of doing business In the House.
It Is said that the other executive de
partments will follow tho example of
the Treasury in strictly enforcing rules
as to the time of arrival and departure
of employes, and against reading, smok
ing and visiting among tho clerks dur
ing olllco hours. In the Treasury-, the
system of enforcing the rules Is being
perfected gradually, and a complete
system of dally reports of violations of
tho rules is being put into effect. More
than adozen clerks have ah eady been re
ported for violation of tho rules to an
extent that Is regarded by the Chief
Clerk as justifying their removal. It
has not yet been decided what degree of
severity should be exercised.
It may be safely affirmed that no
President since Jackson and he an ex
ception only at a particular juncture
and to a limited extent has been so
Impressively and pervadlngly felt in the
departments by the employes generally,
as Is President Cleveland. It teems to
be the habit of mind hero already, when
an order is Issued by a Secretary of one
of tho departments, to see tho President
standing, with a determined counten
ance, behind the immediate actor. Tho
trepidation into which the employes of
the Treasury Department wcro thrown
recently, and are still kept, by their dis
covery that detectives wero employed to
note the time of their coming and go
ing, and by tho subsequently promul
gated order of Secretary Manning, re
specting tardiness, Jtc, is largely due to
tho conviction that it is part of the
President's policy In the details of his
administration The old employes have
know u what new orders and new regu
lations are, with almost every new
fledgling of a chief clerk; but while
obeying them nt first, they would laugh
among themselves and lake comfort
which time Would justify that It was
only for a little while until the new in
cumbent should satisfy himself either
that ho had obtained recognition of his
importance, or had committed a blunder
and como nigh making himself a laughing-stock.
Now this Is changed.
Hut now and then tho President makes
himself felt without the agency of a
cabinet officer, and In one example just
now, farther than he foresaw. London
trade Is extensively affected by Queen
Victoria's encouragement or discourage
ment of the fashions, her presence In
"town" or absence from It, Ac. ; but
this hardly suggested to our plain re
publican President that his order for
bidding callers to broach the business
of oflice-sceking to him till this Is the
meaning of It he shall havo completed
his message, would heavily handicap
the business of Washington. His order
cut a much wider and deeper gash than
ho knew. An Intelligent gentleman, and
one In a position to guage the effect of
this order, asserts that the season's
business is seriously Injured thereby,
and what Is recognized here as the re
sumption of business for tho congres
sional season will have a much later
commencement and shorter duration In
It looks now as if Congress is bound
to have an exceedingly difficult task to
perform, or attempt, or shirk. The
two old parties, In obedience to tho law
of self-preservation, will, whatever mat
ter they may be called upon to consider,
bear continually lu mind the question,
What will be Its effect upon our party's
existence aud welfare?
This Is specially trammeling because
of tin want of well defined differences
of principles or measures between the
two parties. Not one of the Important
subjects most occupying the attention
of the country at present namely, the
relation of capital and labor, the tariff,
civil service reform and silver coinage
is made a strict paity Issue. Each par
ty ia -claiming to be the best friend of
the manual laborer and of civil service
reform; and both ore divided on a high
tariff and silver coinage This state of
things, together with tho Independent
attitude of the President though as yet
Erofcsslng to stand quite within the
lemocratte party makes the continued
cohesion of each party, a matter which
cannot be safely left to tako care of
itself. These questions, all save the
silver coinage, are complex and al
stiuso and difficult of solution In them
selves nt best, perhaps; but especially
difficult may wo expect a Congress to
find them, scarcely o member of which
has trained himself for statesmanship;
and for want of party unanimity on
them they cannot be disposed of by a
count of Senators and Representatives
In each party composing the two bodies.
Hut tho questions arc momentous and
pressing. S.
