The Ownership of Photographs.
Mew York TrUmBS I<mto Cablegram.
Mr. Justice North's photograph decision dis
poses once (or all, it may be hoped, of the pop
ular fallacy respecting property in private
photographs. Sundry unscrupulous photogra
phers have claimed the right to sell and ex
hibit photographs of their customers against
their will and although they had been pud for
taking them. Efforts to prevent this have been
met in the pact by legal opinions affirming the
legal right of m photographer to do what he
liked with negatives or impressions from nega
tives, which oonfeamdly remained his prop
erty. The coort has now blown this contention
to the winds. "The photographer," said Mr.
Justioe North, "is wholly in ftewrong:" and
he peremptorily enjoined him against both ex.
hibitton and sals. The negattvebetongs to the

THE REFORM SCHOOL BUILDING*.
Mr. Robinson, inspector of plumbing, has
made ? report of the examination made by him
of the mam building and family building* at
the Beform school. He states that to put them
in good sanitary condition the 8-incn terra
cotta pipe under them should be replaced by a
6-inch cast-iron pipe, and all the traps of the
plumbing fixtures properly ventilated. The
rain leaders should be haffod and the vertical
soil and waste pipes ventilated above the roof.
This will cost about $1,500.
THX PROPOSED OIBLs' REFORM SCHOOL.
The District Commissioners have addressed
a letter to Mr. Dawes, of the Senate committee
on appropriations, respecting th? bill making
an appropriation for a girls reform school in
the District. The Commissioners say they con
sider the proposed institution a much-needed
adjunct to the reformatory agencies of the Dis
trict, and that in their opinion the amount of
the proposed appropriation?130,000? is not
unreasonable.

His Only Means of Support.?A fallen horse,
internally injured, was the center of a crowd
on the north side of Pennsylvania avenue, near
3d street northwest, this morning. All efforts
to get the?auimal to stand up were of no avail
ana it was finally taken away in Dr. McKenzie s
ambulance. Agent Key was present, and on
his advice the animal was removed for examina
tion and treatment. "I don t want to kill it,
said the agent, "unless it is absolutely neces
sary. It belongs to a poor colored man and is
his'only means of support."
No Santa Clabb for the Horses.?"No,
Santa Claus didn't fill the Humane society s
stocking this Christmas." said Agent Key, in
answer to a Star reporter's query. "We
thought." he continued, "that the old gentle
man would have dropped in two or three drink

seems to have forgotten the poor old horses.

J. Wagner, yesteroay. with an umbrella.
An Engagement in which Soldiers and a
Policeman and a Marine Participate.?
Last evening a row occurred at Pennsylvania
avenue and 9tli street between a party of sol
diers of the third artillery and a marine. It
appears that one of the bluecoats asked
another for some money he owed him. The
latter thought it wns an insult to be asked for
money on Christmas day and started a fight.
Policeman Hamilton, who was in the neighbor
hood at the time, also took a hand in the tight
and got a black eye. One of the bluecoats
also received a black eye. The officer was
about to be treated roughly when Officer Bar
nev came to his assistance, and five of the
partv were arrested. They gave their names
as Anton Fitz, Michael Bradshaw, William
Norbeck. John Hickson and James Swan.
Thin morning in the Police Court Bradshaw
and Swan were fined $10 each. Hickson and
Norbeck were each fined $5, and Fitz was
discharged.
Fined $50 for Firing a Pistol at a Man. |
Michael Meanv. a printer, was in the Police
Court this morning.cliarged under the name of
Frank McFinncgan. with carrying a revolver.
The prisoner got into a drunken row in a sa
loon near 12th and D streets, during which he
fired a pistol shot at his opponet. The latter left
the saloon, but Officers Heller and Ellis ar
rested Meany and found the weapon on him.
The court imposed a fine of $50 or 90 days on
the farm.
He Cattoht Them.?Yesterday afternoon, on
the Bladensburg road. Officer Slack spoke to
two voung men on horseback, and cautioncd
them against fast driving. "Go to h?1, and
catch us if you can!" shouted one of the young
men. Then there w;is a genuine race. The
officer gave chase, and after running them
some distance he succeeded in capturing them. |
They were escorted to the sixth precinct sta

The Holiday Season.?Christmas was passed
in Alexandria after the Virginia fashion, with
church exercises and festive enjoyments, noisy
shouts in the streets of the city, and quiet joys
at the homes of her citizens. Services were
held early in the duy at the Catholic and the
Methodist churches, r.nd later at the Catholic
and the Episcopal churches, but from before
the day's diiwn, by the light of the moon, until
midnight, by the light of the stars, the streets
were never quiet. Fire-crackers and horns
filled all the hours with noise and the town
smelt of gunpowder nil day. A number of ar
rests. which enabled the prisoners to sober off
at the station-house, were made.
The Billy Williams Case.?Billy Williams
still waits in jail the judgment by the court of
appeals upon the rulings made in his trial for
the murder of Officer Julian Arnold in August,
1887. for which he stands sentenced to five
years in the penitentiary. He has very few
visitors from Washington, and among those in
Alexandria who see him most often is Robert
1 Arnold, the son of the murdered officer. The
lad. who was formerly greatly incensed against
Williams, and on the occasion when W illiams
I was first brought here assaulted him with a
stone, has, it is understood, become convinced
that Williams was not in town on the night of
Officer Arnold's death. The court of appeals
will take up the Williams case about the middle
of next month, aud the question of a new
trial or five years in the penitentiary will be
determined.
Fires.?Two slight fires called out the fire
department. The first was kindled on the roof
of Brill's restaurant, on King street, between
Pitt aud St. Asaph streets, by a falling fire
work. but was extinguished by the firemen
before a hole had been made in the roof, flie
second was also caused by a fire-cracker falling
upon the roof of a small tenement opposite the
Midland depot on I)nke. between Henry and
Fayette streets. This fire was soon extinguished,
and then some Christmas sport in the shuoe of
a water battle tu indulged in by some of the
firemen. . _
Funeral.?The funeral of young Julius
Rosenthal took place from the residence of Mr.
Emil Rosenthal, his father, this morning, and
the remains, accompanied by many of the lead

THE PRESSURE FOR BLAINE.
His Friends Urging His Selection as Sec

EX-SEN ATOB DAVIS* VISIT TO OEX. HARMSOX??EX
ATOB HAWTEE GIVES SOME ADVICE AND URGES
THE MAINE STATES*AX?TWO HEX THINE BLAINE
HAS NO CHANCE FOB APPOINTMENT.
Gen. Harrison had really a quiet day yester
day, and was permitted to enjoy his Christinas
undisturbed by the visits of politicians. There
has, however, been a good deal of political
gossip sent out from Indianapolis during the
last two days, and it all refers to Mr. Blaine.
First, the visit of ex-8enstor Henry O. Davis
was said to be in the interest of Blaine, and a
very pretty plan was outlined which, it was as
serted. he had presented to Gen. Harrison.
This was to make Blaine Secretary of State
and put Hon. Nathan Goff. of West Virginia,
also into the cabinet as Secretary of the Navy,
which position he held under Hayes. Then
that would give an opportunity for the elec
tion of Stephen B. F.lkins. Mr. Davis' son-in
law, to tho United States Senate. This story
was punctured by Mr. Davis, who returned to
Baltimore yesterdav, and in an
interview with a local reporter ssid.
"I wan in Cincinnati on business, and paid a
social visit to Gen. Harrison because I was in
his neighborhood. There have for years been
rather close social relations between 6ur fami
lies, and for six or more summers the Harri
sons Lave spent part of the season at Deer
Park and have been our guests. Our friendli
ness dates back further than the time when we
were members of the Senate and has since con
tinued. I reached Indianapolis at midnight,
and the general's son-in-law met me at the
railway station. Gen. and Mrs. Harrison were
waiting my coming at that late hour, aud our
meeting was as cordial as it has alwavs been.
Mrs. Harrison was at the station next day when
I left, but the general does not show himself
about the streets much now that he is elected
President. My visit had no political signifi
cance. and as a democrat I diner widely with
Gen. Harrison upon politics."
8ENATOB BAWYEB's ADVICE.
Senator Sawyer also visited Gen. Harrison
and, according to the New York Tribune corre
spondent, gave the President-elect some advice.
He is quoted as follows: "I told the general
that Wisconsin had two good men for cabinet
portfolios. If he had the portfolio to give us.
it would be all right. If he didn't, it would be
all right, too. Tne men we have to offer are
Governor Busk and Henry C. Payne. Gov
ernor Busk is in feeble health, and he can take
nothing but the War department. If Wiscon
sin has to take a harder department like the
Interior or the new department of Agricul
ture. we will fWt in Mr. Payne.
"I think." he continued.*"aud I told the gen
eral so. that Mr. Blaine ought to have the De
partment of State. He was the candidate of
the party in 1884, and could have been the can
didate in 1883. His friends, too. nominated
Gen. Harrison. Two-thirds of the republicans
in the country will feel slighted if Mr. Blaine
does not go into the cabinet, or. at least, if the
offer of the Secretaryship of State is not made
to him. He ought to have it. and I do not see
how Gen. Harrison can avoid offering it to
him.
"Gen. Harrison," continued the Senator,
''has, I feel confident, made no absolute selec
tions for the cabinet so far. He is listening to
advice from all sides and will act wisely. I
came here ao an old personal friend to talk the
situation over. I knew the President-elect well
when I was in the Senate. One thing I can
Sredict: That, whoever goes into the cabinet,
en. Harrison will be at the head of it."
TftE PRESSURE FOB BLAINE.
There appears to be no doubt that the friends
of Mr. Blaine are making a strenuous pressure
upon Gen. Harrison in behalf of the Maine
statesman. All the dispatches state this, and
the Philadelphia Titiws man puts the case con
cisely as follows: The pressure in favor of
Blaine for Secretary of State has been vigor
ously reuewed within the past few days, and
his friends are making an aggressive light all
along the line, having been spurred into action
by the visit of Senator Quay. The action of
Blaine's friends assumes the form of urgent
letters, and two-thirds of the entire number
received by the President-elect since Quay's
visit have "come from friends of Blaine, and
contain strong expressions in his favor. A
Senator wrote that the country expected
Blaine's appointment and would "be content
only with nis recognition. The same writer
declared, it is said, tnat the noise made against
him was an evidence of the acceptability of
Blaine with the party. His enemies were not
republicans, except "when the battle has been
won and the fruits of the victory ore to be
divided." In addition to numerous letters in
his behalf Blaine's personal friends are also
beginning to urge his appointment in person,
and several of them are expected during the
holidays.
I TWO ADVERSE OPINIONS.
The New York BeraltTs correspondent nays;
This evening I had an interesting talk with Mr.
Oliver T. Morton, the son of the deceased states
man of that name. He takes a lively interest
in politics, and is particularly interested in
keening Blaine out of the cabinet.
"I have never thought." he said, "that Blaine
would be Secretary of State, and I do not think
so now. No doubt he would like to have the
recognition, but I do not think be is particu
larly anxious to perform the duties of the office.
Blaine has always been a leader, and if he again
enters public life he would be a leader. I have
an idea that Harrison wants to be the leader
himself. The appointment of Blaine would
mean two leaders, aud I don't think Harrison
would enjoy that. Blaine alreadv has a foreign
policy of his own. and I don't t^iink that Har
rison could induced him to chaugeitifhe chose
to. No, I don't think Harrison and Blaine
would get along smoothly together."
Mr. Morton also said that the appointment
of Blaine would displease many men in this
state who voted for Harrison, and also that he
would be especially objectionable to his mug
wump support.
Dr. James McLeod. pastor of the Second Pres
byterian church here, and the clergyman who
officiated at the marriage of Gen. Harrison's
daughter, said to me to-night: " I will tell you
now that Mr. Blaine has no more chance of get
ting into the cabinet than I have."' Whether
Dr. McLeod speaks advisedly is more than I
know, but he is a close friend of the President
elect. and is not the sort of a man that talks
without reason.
MB. BLAINE WILLIXO.
A special from Augusta, Me., to the Boston
Journal gives Mr. Blaine's position: "Mr.
Blaine up to thi3 hour has not made applica
cation to Gen. Harrison for the portfolio of
State, nor has he intimated to the President
elect that he will nccept any office; neither ha*
any gentleman whose relations personally are
close to Mr. Blaine made a single move in the
interest of Augusta's distinguished citizen.
Gen. Harrison, however, has learned from per
sons not standing near to Mr. Blaine that he
would undoubtedly accept the State portfolio.
Mr. Blaine has not received even a hint from
Mr. Harrison as to what his intentions are.
Mr. Blaine will not take the English mission,
nor will he go to Berlin, but he will accept the
premiership." t
Those statements, savs the Journal corre
spondent, are those of an eminent republican
who has visited the Augusta statesman this
week and who is intimate with him. Mr.
Blaine and his family will go to Washington for
the winter soon after New Year's, and. their
residence there being leased for five years,
they will necessarily have to secure another.
Their house in Augusta will be closed.
BUHHELL HABBISOX VISITS PHILADELPHIA.
Russell Harrison, the son of the President
elect, was in Philadelphia Monday and called
on John Wannamaker, George W. Childs and
I Charles Emory Smith. He lunched with Hamil
ton Disston and left for New York.
The first delegation from Virginia to visit
President-elect Harrison will leave Richmond
this week, headed by 1CoL William Lamb, ex
mayor of Norfolk. The committee consists of
personal friends of Gen. Mahone, whom they
will commend to Mr. Harrison as a member of
his cabinet.

The child, a bouncing boy, was born Saturday

Kmt York Letter
Mrs. Vanderbilt. the widow of Fm. H. Yan
dertiilt. U the richest woman in America.
Next to Queen Victoria she is the richest
woman in the world. Hhe and her ran George,
the only unmarried child, with a Urge staff of
servants, occupy the huge brown-*tone palace
at the corner of 5th avenue and 51st street In
many respects Mrs. Yanderbilt leads a very
simple life, exactly as hundred* of other
women who have not a hundredth part of her
money. She breakfasts between 8 and 9
o'clock, the meal consisting of fruit, porridge,
steak, chops or broiled chicken, warm rolls,
tea and coffee. Geo. Yanderbilt breakfasts
with his mother. so that she shall not be alone.
Her luncheon is also a comparatively simple
meal, but at dinner there is much ceremony,
and there are usually guests. The dining-room
is situated on the first door, with windows look
ing out on 51st street. There is an immense
fireplace with carved oaken designs in bas-re
lief at one end of the room, opposite the door
leading from the Japanese room, which has
recentlv had a billiard-table placed in the cen
ter. The dining-room is famished with all
oaken furniture. A buffet fill* one entire side
of the room, and on the other, between the
windows, are large glass cabinets, in which is
the finest collection of old Sevres aud other
rare porcelain.
When I lunched with her the other day the
table was set for eight people and the
service was of Dresden china. On each plate
was a large white linen napkin so folded as to
show an embroidered monogram about an inch
and a half square of the letters W. H. V. At
the four corners of the table were tall single
silver candlesticks, with pink candles and pink
silk shades, and in front of these small silver
dishes for bonbons, salted almonds, olives. Ac.
The glassware was finely cut and sparkled like
diamonds, and on the buffet stood other speci
mens of cut glass ready for use. It all shone
like a collection of huge gems. In the center
of the table stood a large cut-glass bawl of rare
workmanship, tilled with chrysanthemums from
Mrs. VanderDilt's own conservatory, which just
now contains an immensely beautiful display
of these autumnal flowers.
SAFES FILLED WITH SILVER ASD GOLD.
Just outside the dining-room is a store-room,
with safes bnilt into the wall. It also contains
the butler's pantry. There is a balcony, with
a wrought-iron railing, which extends around
the room and 5 feet from the top. The safes
on the lower range are lined with purple velvet
and contain large pieces of silver. There are
silver punch-bowls, tankards, candlesticks,
tureens, all exquisitely engraved and of im
mense size. One safe contains only immense
silver trays, and one tray, especially large, has
a tiny railing an inch high surrounding it and
large showy nandles. It is said to be the larg
est and finest engraved piece of silver plate in
the country. Another safe contains a solid
fold dinner service and tall gold candlesticks,
here are few people of royal blood who can
I excel in their table appointments this New
York widow. In the balcony row of safes the
smaller pieces of silver are kept: spoons of
every kind and variety, ladles, knives, forks,
and small dishes. They arc in gold, silver, and
[ platinum.
One may very naturally ask what does so
small a family as Mrs Yanderbilt aud her son
George do with this immense amount of silver,
glass, and porcelain? As I have said, the din
ner is the one ceremonious occasion of the day.
and each day the butler is requested to set the
table with "an entirely different service of
plate, glass, and china. I do not say that there
are 365 of these sets, but there are enough to
last for a long time before beginning over
again. In this way Mrs. Vanderbilt learns that
such of her possessions are intact.
the whole house superb.
The whole house, in point of costliness and
splendor, is beyond any question the most su
perb in New York. We went all over it the
other morning from hall to roof-tree, a sort of
triumphal progress from cover to cover of the
Arabian Nigbta. with such bewildering magnifi
cence here, there, aud everywhere that only
the most colossal mind could manage to carry
away any definite idea of it all. A trim man
servant threw open the front door, and we
went up a few steps till we stood in the vast
square hall, open straight up to the roof, with
two galleries running around its sides, one
above the other, aud tilled with a glow of rich,
soft light that fell through the stained glass
windows with peculiar effectiveness. Every
inch of that hall is decorated by insister hands;
gilded, carved, painted, till its dimmest corner
is a chrf(Ta-nrre of which a king or an emperor
might be proud to boast. An enormous rug
covered the inlaid floor; there were silken hang
ings here and there, carved chairs and settees,
palms and plants, and a large portrait of Mrs.
Vanderbilt herself In one comer. Now and
i then a noiseless servant came and went The
great house looked homely and cozy in spite of
its luxury, but there was no sound except those
of our own voices and that of our hostess, and
it seemed as if we had suddenly come upon

One thing in it is a dressing table, with a great

is of carved and inlaid wood, four posts and a

satin coverlet Next this chamber is a boudoir
or sitting-room, where a cozy open fire burns
on the hearth. A pretty work table, with its
every implement in silver, stood invitinglv

were books and photographs, magazines and
newspapers in lavish prolusion. As for the
dressing-rooms they are lined from floor to

seemed so. The most fascinating room in the

TEE ISCIUEN'T WHICH MADE CHIEF-JUSTICE rw
LEU A3 EPISCOPALIAN.
A special to the New York H'orW from
Augusta, Me.. December 25. says: James O.
Blaine is one of the contributors towards the
building of a new Congregational vestry here,
which will contain a kitchen where suppers
may be prepared, and a parlor where the young
people can enjov music and games such as
would have been frowned upon as ungodly by
the austere Congregationaiist* of fifty years
ago.
Singular as the statement may seem the
notes of a piano and violin drove the present
Chief-Justice of the United States from the
Congregational into the Episcopal fold. In
1840 Nathan Weston was the chief-justice of
the state of Maine, aud Mrs. Fuller, mother of
Melville W. Fuller, was Weston's daughter.
After a meeting of the young ladies' sewing
circle at the Weston home Mrs. Fuller playea
the piano for a dance, her brother accompany
ing ner on his fiddle. The conservative mem
bers of the congregation, taking offense, in
stituted an inquiry that dragged along for
months, and resulted in the withdrawal of the
Weston and Fuller families and many others,
who joined the Episcopal church. It is a
curious coincidence that the Episcopal church,
which was erected two or more year* ago.
stands on the spot where the dance took place,
and the bouse itself, moved to the rear, B bow
the rectory.

THE TIME LOCK.
Polats la the Lift of
TkmbtCI
There u a theory. too know, that we inherit
trait* and conditions from oar remote mcn
ton m well as from oar immediate ones I
sometime* fancy that they descend to mm
people with a time-look attachment. A child
ia born; he is like his mother, we will my,
gentle, sweet, kind, truthful for rear*?let ni
?ay seven. Suddenly the time-lock turn*, and
the traits of hi* father (modified, of coarse, by
the acquired habit of seven) rears show them
selves strongly?take possissson.in fact. Another
seven years and the piggishness of a great
uncle. the stinginess of an aunt, or the dullness,
in books, of a rural grandfather. Tbeti. la
keeping with the next two turns of the lock, be
falls in love with every new face he seea. mar
ries early and indulge* himself recklensly in a
Urge family. He is an examplary husband and
father, a* men go. an ideal business man. and*
general favorite in society. Everybody re
marks upon the favorable change since his
stupid, priggish college day*. All this time,
through every change, he ha* been honorable
and upright in his dealing* with his fellows.
Suddenlv the time lock of a thieving ancestor
is turned on: he finds temptation too strong
for even that greatly underestimated power -
the force of habit of a lifetime--and uie trust
funds in his keeping disappear with him to Can
ada. Everybody i* surprised, shocked, pained?
and he. no doubt, more *o than anyone else.
Emotional insanity is offered s* a possible
explanation by the charitable; long
headed. calculating, intentional raaralitv br
the Severe or self-righteous. And he? Wall,
he is wholly unnble to account for it all. He
know* that he had not lived all these vear* as a
conscious. self-controlled thief. lie knows
that the temptations of his past life had never
before taken that particular form. He kuows
that the impulse was sudden, blinding, over
whelming. but be does not know why and how.
It wan like an awfnl dream. He seemed to be
powerless to overcome it. The time lock had
turned without his knowledge, and in spite of
himself. The unknown, unheard of thiev
ish ancestor took (KMsession. as it were, through
force of superior strength and ability and thi n
it was his hour. The bcreditarv shadow oti the
dial had come around to him. The great node's
hour was passed. He. no doubt, was turned
onto some other dazed automaton in Main*
or Texas - who had fallen heir to a drop too
much of his blood, and she. poor thing, if it
happened to !>e a girl this tunc, forthwith pro
<?<>? il? d to fall in Urn with her friend's hus
band -seeing he was the only man at hand at
the time: while the thievish aucestor left- in
shame and contrition -a small but light-fin
gered boy in Georgia, to keep hi* engagement
with our respectable, highly-honored and
heretofore highly honorable tnan of affairs in
Wall street. The time look of heredity bad
been set for this hour, and the mschinery of
circumstances oiled the wheels and dNtlj
moved the dial.)
Her Appetite Her Only Fault.
THE COMPLAINT AOAINST AN ENOI.ISH SEEVANT?
FOREION DOMESTICS OCTEAT AMERICA**.
From the New York Mail and [ii'hw
"She's a good girl, but I can't keep her. She
eat* too much." said a lady in an uptown intel
ligence office yesterday.
"She is neat and tidy, and does her work
well, but I had rather |>ay her a whole month'*
wages, although she has only worked a week,
than to feed her until her time is np. She eats
tlnee pounds of steak, four potatoes, and half
a dozen slices of bread for her breakfast, and
and an ordinary dinner for her would feed a
starving family for a week."
The girl in auestion was a small English
maiden, recently landed, and was steady and
industrious in every way. but had such* a tre
mendous appetite that she never remained
more than a week in a place. The matron at
the office said that American girls have good
appetites, but they cannot eom|>are with for
eign help when there is any eating to be done.
Tliey eat as though they wish to make up for
the generations their ancestors have beea
starving in the old country. A great rnauy
families hire help by the day to wash and iron
and do the remainder of the housework them
selves. because they cannot afford to pay n girl
wages and board her also. The grocer*' and
butchers' bills for a married couple who em
ploy one servant are double what they would
be without the servant.
Oriental Justice.
From the Fortuitrhtly Review.
The old Mussulman justice, the Justice of the
"Arabian Nights." was adminfctered by a cadi
according to his innate notion of the fitnees of
thiugs. modified or confirmed by a more or
less appropriate text from the Koran. In criti
cising native justice we must bear in mind that
this system existed in Egypt within the memory
of a middle-aged man. In ltownng's report
upon Egypt, published in 1H40. he gi?e* various
instances of this, and exemplifies Oriental no
tions of justice by a conversation he relates be
tween a Mohammedan and an English traveler:
Governor?Is it true that you in England send
vour thieves and rogues to a distant country?
'Traveler?Yes. Goescaor? And what may be
the cost of sending each? Traveler?Perhaps
?100 or 10.000 piastres. Governor?And what
is the cost of a sabre? Traveler?About
?10 or 1.000 piastres. Governor?And what is
the cost of a hempen rope? Traveler?Almost
nothing. Governor?And you call yourselves
a civilized nud an instructed people, you who
call get a sabre for 1.000 piastres aud a rope
for almost nothing -a sabre that would behead
many rogues and a rope that would hang many
thieves?and who pay 10.000 piastres to get rid
of one! This is your civilization.
Death of RtAEalne's Agent.
From the Pall Mall Oazotte.
The death is announced of General Boynr,
who. as Marshal Bazaine's agent, played a dis
creditable part at Metz and Versailles in 1879.
He was the aid-de-camp, friend, and some say
accomplice, of the late marshal. He was with
Uazaine in Mexico; his condnct there was an
grily denounced to the Emperor Napoleon br
General Douay in letters found at the Tlit
eries on the 4th of September. In his latter
days he made no secret of the mission oa
which he was sent to Versailles and Hastings,
with the sanction of Prince Bismarck. It was
to surrender Metz on condition that the army
there should issue from it with all it's moni
tions of war. and. aided by a German force, set
up the prince imperial as emperor, with the em
press as regent aud Marshal fiazaine as lieuten
ant general of the kingdom. The prince was to bs
crowned at Ithcims. While General Hover was
at Hastings Razaine surrendered, aud the re
sistance made bv M. Gambetta prevented the
Germans and Wince Bismarck from enter
taining the idea of a Bona|>arti*t restoration.
General Boyer was a type of the absinthe
drinking. rough-spoken, and yet cunning and
rapacious soldier. For the last fifteen years
he lived out of sight and out of mind at a place
hejbought near the Par^ux-Princes. He was
auite forgotten until the Emperor Frederick1*
diary came out. when he became for a Ssv
days a butt for patriotic indignation.
