But all mtch ordrrt must b* accompanied by (he money, or (kr paper cannot be sent, a* no account* are kept tnth mail subscription*. Baltimore is in the throes of a vigorous liquor controversy. There haa been so steady ? multiplication of saloons and so much dis order and lawlessness traceable to them, that an effort will be mado to induce the next legis lature to enact a high license law. The com plaint is made that local option, which is the system now in vogue in the state, aud under which several counties of the state have adopted prohibition, does not answer for the large cities. This is undoubtedly true. The solution of the liquor question for cities seems to rest in high license, which can be enforced, and which, without abolishing the liquor traffic, regulates it by reducing the number of dramshops and improving their quality. But local option does serve its purpose admirably ia smaller communities, where the enforce ment of any law depends upon its having a strong public sentiment behind it. When the people of a county decide for themselves whether they wish to license liquor selling or'not, they do not vote for a rule which they cannot, and do not intend to, stand by. The effect of such local regulation is obvious on crossing the line between a county where li censes are freely granted and one where the whole traffic is forbidden. We have an ex ample right in our own neighborhood which can be observed by any one who follows the 7th street road, for instance, out far enough to enter Montgomery county, Md. The transition is sufficiently marked to attract the notice even of oue who had no idea where the district ends and the state begins. The same marked contrast is noticeable between the "wet" and ??dry" counties of the state. The wonderful growth, for instance, of Montgomery county, which is filling np its whole extent with beautiful homes and orderly intelligent enter prising communities, takes its date from the time when the people of the county voted to abolish that demoralizing plague spot, the country grog-shop. It is remarked, by observers of the peach growing region of Maryland and Delaware, that the crop this year will be of fair propor tions. but that the bulk of it will come from the orchards on high lands. Those on the lower levels, owing to their later blooming, were caught by the heavy rains which have distinguished this season, and great numbers of blossoms so injured that they never matured. It is noted that the "yellows" have not pre vailed in peach orchards this year to the usual extent, and the fact is attributed to the mild winter. Concerning the apple crop of New York, whence a large portion of the supply of our neighborhood comes, the reports are discouraging. The good yield of last year, following upon one of exceptional size in 1887, seems to have exhausted the bearing vitality of the trees, and possibly the high temperature of January ?and February has injured the apple crop as much as it improved the peach crop. The two fruits appear to thrive under precisely opposite cli matic conditions. From Michigan, where the frosts and biting winds of winter more nearly I approached the normal standard last season, good accounts are given of the northwestern apple country. The crop promises to be as large as usual. There will be an uncommon multitude of consumers to satisfy, however, with those apples which are raised in any part of our country. It probably interests Boston to learn that the bean crop is in bad shape in New York, but that Michigan and California will endeavor to maintain the equilibrium in the staple viand of Beacon Hill and Boylston street. Lord Randolph Churchill has so conducted himself politically during the last few years that neither of the great parties in the British house of commons has felt any assurance in laying claim to him. By his recent speech at Walsall he has marched himself right into the socialist camp, and we may expect soon to hear the Hyde park and Trafalgar square agi tators hailing him as one of themselves. He proposed a revision of the laws so as to prevent the bequeathing of land by will; to authorize the purchase by municipalities, by the exercise of eminent domain, of large tracts of land, on which comfortable houses for workinginen are to bs built and rented at a rate duly propor tioned to the coat of the improvements; and to cause the regulation by the state of the hours of labor for men, women and children. If some smudge-f?eed, frowsy-haired, hulking (allow had declaimed such ideas from the top of a barrel to a crowd of his own sort, the po lice would have eagerly sought an excuse for his arrest; but "Lord Randy," well-dressed, well fed. and' allied to one of the most illustrious houses in the peerage, is treated only as an er ratic gentleman, who will one day find his way back to the place and the atmosphere in which he belongs. Singular that General Roeser never discov ered until after he went back among his north era friends in Minnesota that all the newspa pers misquoted the ridiculous rebel speeches he made in Baltimore and other southern cities oa festive occasions last spring. The reports as published were evidently all right for the latitude of Maryland and Virginia, but seemed to be all wrong np in the northwest, where.after the war, the Genoral was enabled to recruit his fallen fortunes by the aid of northern capital aad enterprise, and where he had a number of pleasant business and social associates. General Roeser doesn't of course mean to be two-faced, and probably is not, but he doubtless realizes by now that shooting off one's mouth at long range aad saying things to the fellow's face are two quite different affairs. The epidemic of blindness which is puzzling the physicians of Montreal seems to have ex tended all over the dominion, and to be making a special target of the preao. The tone of the editorial treatment which the t'auadian news P*P*rs give to the Behring sea matter indicates that they are of the class who cannot see be cause they will not. If the fur-dressing plant which coins so much money out of the Alaska seal trade were to be removed from England to Canada it would prove the greatest eye opener ever known. We should then hear our northern neighbors praying the mother coun try to keep her hands off, lest her encourage ment of poaching should seriously injure an important local industry. Mr. Murat Halstead ia looming up as a decidedly formidable candidate for the Ohio senatorship. There is wrath amougst the Ohio republicans at the insolent manner in which Halstead's diplomatic nomination was rejected by the Senate, aad a strong feeling that the eternal fitness of things can only be re-established and the insulted dignity of the sovereign state of Ohio vindicated by sending him to that body with a commission that ead*t he turned down ia executive session. or TO* ?AT .

Thia story is the outcome of aa attack which de mands a reply end a reply th?t can be fairly made only by the clerka and not the proprietor of the Palaia RoyaL That thla true ?tory will aa much surpriss Mr. Llsner when he reada hia "Btar" In Saratoga, a* It will yon aa you glance through thla column, la the aa ?urance of the writer. CHAPTER I, The time, July. 1880. The place, a neatly appointed office on the second floor of No. 1119 h. aye., Mr. Llsner, the proprietor of the Palais Royal la buaily en Wied with his correspondence when the door ia opened by an individual who would aea him on Important business. The important buttnen re ferred to the residence belnir built by Mr. Lienar on Massachusetta avenue, and waa to the effect that a non-union laborer waa being employed. Mr. Lisner in reply stated that he only acted on sound business principles when be Invited bids and finally awarded the contract to Mr. L , but that he would aee the builder and endeavor to arrange matters satisfactorily. Mr. L la seen and all as ems well when another mysterious visitor announces himaelf. The interview waa ahcrt and, unlike the weather that day, very breexy. The one wanta to dictate, tha other doesn't want to be dictated to. The threat of forcible eject ment on the one aide and of "boycott" on the other, makea a lively stir and food for talk for the second floor clerka for a day?at leaat. Thus enda the, first chapter. CHAPTEB n. *Tls early morning, before the coming of the pro prietor, before the throng of customers begin to arrive; the time when the clerks are apt to congregate and exchange experiencee. The beans were not the topic of conversation thia July morning for all are eagerly diacusaing the why and wherefore of a certain card that had been dlatributed at the Government Printing Office the day previous. ?? What a thavit," s?.ys one; "/ wonder who wrote it." says another; "OA.' what a lie," aaya a tom boy of a glrL Soon the customer* begin to arrive and the floor walker's cry ".Voir, young ladies, to your departuients please," cause the girls to separate. Of courae at lunch time the card is the topic of con vernation and soon the advertising man ia approached by one of the buyers. Here ia a fac simile of the card: "THE LABORER IS WORTHY OF HIS REWARD." ATTENTION. FRIENDS OF LABOR) The proprietor of the Palais Royal, corner 12th street and Pennsylvania avenue, is unfair In all his draliugs ?>th organized labor.ami also with Ills (t msle employes. forbidding them to sit down during work ing hours, arbitrarily fining them for petty offenses, and has been guilty of other acts of tyranny. REFLECT! IS HE WORTHY OF YOCB PATRON AOE. TAKE THIS CARD TO YOUR FAMILY. By advice of several of the buyers It waa decided to show the card to Mr. Llsner. It was somewhat nervously the advertising man ap proached the office and the Interview was very brief; "This it a lie."' "Time uiiU than!" "Don't notice it.*? and the Palais Royal proprietor returns to his letter writing with an action that said to him who knew him. "Don't let me hear of thia disagreeable subject again." Thus disagreeably ends Chapter IL CHAPTEB IIL That good should come of evil Is a bad maxim, but that rood doea often come of evil la certainly true. Those of the PALAIS ROYAL clerka who have grown from almost children, into men and women. In the aervlce of Mr. Lianer, feel the sting of that "horrid card"?aa one pretty girl termed It?even more than the proprietor appeared to. Said oje young lady, who has been aajne years in the store and who now holds an important position, "if that card were true I would be ashamed to aeknowl+tgo that I worttmX in luch a store." The outcome of these talks between the clerks waa a meeting at which the following waa drafted and aipned by every clerk in the jtore excepting, of courae, those who were absent on their vacations. "An anonymous card having been put In circula tion by aome malicious person representing Mr. Lianer, the proprietor of the PALAIS ROYAL, as being 'unfair In all his dealings toward hia employes not allowing them to alt down and being digposed to find them for trivial offenses,' we the employee take this method of extending our aympathy, and pro nounce the above statement aa grave misrepresenta tion and utter falsehood, and add that Mr. Lianer has always proved himself a kind employer and a true friend." The above with the long list of signatures of his Em ployes waa duly presented to Mr. Lianer, who feelingly replied: "1 hardly regret the objectionable card since it has proved I have the eonMencc and respect of my em ptcyts, ami I feel assure-1 that thinking people will not tf Urats the means used to injure me.* That that card haa tightened the bonds that unite the employer and employee of the Palaia Royal only llluatratea that good can come of evil, and thus, hap pily, though mixed with evil, enda Chapter m, CHAPTEB IIIL Mr. Llsner leaves for a well-earned vacation, but not before a consultation with the heada of the various de partments, the result of which la that the buyera are left absolute masters of their departments; the adver tising man being advised to uae his own discretion, subject/of course, to the suggestions of the buyer*; and, thua It comita that thla story Is published, and with the assurance of all the clerks that the Palaia Royal patrons will have it practically demonstrated that the utmoet cordiality exiata between employer and employes. But deeda shall tell more eloquently than words. The patrons of the storo shull set that the elerka appreciate their employer. In the large center ahow window on Monday will be exhibited, handsomely framed, the resolutions adopted by the members of the 'Palaia Royal Beneficial Asso ciation.' This will greet Mr. Llsuer when he euters his office on his return from Saratoga. It reails. "At a meeting of the 'Palais Royal Beneficial Association', held July lhttU. the following resolutions were adopted. "Whereas, the many acta of generosity by ths pro prietor of the Palaia Royal, Mr. A. Lianer, haa placed the Palaia Royal Beneficial Association under obliga tions, and hia uniform kindness to hia employee haa demonstrated hia consideration for their welfare, and It being desired to perpetuate a testimonial of the eeutlment of attachment to him now existing in the estabiiahment? "Therefore, be it resolved. That the contribution to the treaaury of the association la gratefully acknowl edged, with tha assurance that It will find its way into many a van nee leading to good in aiding ths objects of the organisation.
