Darktcwn's poker club prosecution mentioned in Wednesday's Republican came to an end in the recorder's court yesterday afternoon. His honor was somewhat puzzled over the array and contradictory allegations of the sable witnesses, who testified with the child like simplicity peculiar to their race. There was no dispute as to the poker game or the percentage of chips raked off from flhose who held the lucky hands known to (Dokerdom. But the . difficulty arose when it became neces sary to determine the boss of the premises where these high rolling gentlemen staked their last week's earnings on so slender a basis some times as a bob-tailed flush, Jacu inagn, It appears that John Morris, the de fendant, hired two rooms from a Frenchman whose name he could not recall. A weekly rent of ?3 was charged hy the ibrass-llvered, rapacious landlord. In the Iront room cDon wooers of poker fortune staked 2 cent chips in frantic efforts to land three of a bind toy drawing lour cams, Sometimes when visitors thronged, the gamesters overflowed into Morris bedroom, hut there was no evidence of a "rake-off" in there. The defendant's line of evidence went to show that seventeen sportive Africans, socially inclined, had formed a club last May and taken the front room off Morris' hands by paying the weekly pro rata of Tent, lights, cards. beer and ice water when the percent age or "rake-oft" failed to produce (funds sufficient for the purpose. Morris always left the key hung up where initiated members could -find it and enter the premises at will. Additional evidence was offered to the effect that the colored population of this city was barred from the white man's gaming tables and that they were thus forced to maintain a club room like the one in question or be deprived of all sociability, and red, white' and blue chips whatsoever. Besides it did not appear that the jack-iwt at stake ever amounted to $10, the sum exacted 'by ordinace as monthly license. The members only played the night after pay day, because, as one member frankly admitted, "We culled folks al ways broke other times." Proof was given that four plungers had wrecked their fortunes since Christmas trying to run the percentage poker on per sonal account. Defendant had wrestled with it during April and in a starving condition turned the concern over to the so-called "club." His honor final ly concluded to give the prisoner the 4 1 Sill SH IN ALL STYLES. SUMMER t Goats and Vests In Flannel and Linen. GREENE, THE HATTTEU, Fleming Block. 1. Latest U. S.

JAILED FOR A JACKASS. Man Takes "Woman's Place on the tPhoenix Chain Gang. Payment of debts is about as prac tical test of honesty as can be sug gested in this more or less dishonest world. Rather & unique instance of such honesty occurred ia the Phoenix police department the present week. One of Sonora's olive hued signoritas had disturbed the virtuous quiet of block 41 and received in consequence sentence of five days in the city Das- tile. After whdling away two-fifths of her term she was surprised to find her self suddenly liberated. A Mexican man had persuaded the city marshal to incarcerate him in place of the woman. He served out the remaining three days of her sen tence, working hard on the chain gang, and then went forth without ap parent consciousness of any jail taint dinging to him. It appeared that he owed the woman on account of a burro purchased from her and had no means of payment. When he heard she was in jail he volunteered to 'be come her substitute and by doing so obtained $3 credit upon his indebted ness. We cannot help idly speculat ing whether any white man would spend three days in a city jail to pay S3 on account of a jackass obligation due a strumpet. BIOYCLE SLANG. Wheel Circles in the West Have Vernacular of Their Own. A writer dn a western journal won ders why, in the east, iwhere cycling Is so universal, and where it had its origin, there 4s not a more general wheel slang. He goes on to say: Cyclist it a legitimate and compre hensive word that is shorter than wheelman or wheelwoman. In far away New Zealand the awful word 'cyctodonna" 'has been coined as substitute for wheelwoman. In many western town the fair rider is called "bloomer," without regard to her costume. The word "scorcher" as in dicating a speedy cyclist, is fairly en grafted, upon the language. In Chi cago, however, the "scorcher is called "scoot." The technicalities of the machine have led to attempts upon the part of young men to coin expres sions. "Your tire is punctured" indi cates that the story you are telling lacks the tprohahle element f truth. Reckless statements are called "coast ing." A very ancient yarn is not a 'chestnut,'" but a "century." A young couple sharing a -mutual fondness are riding tandem." A man leading a fast life is "geared too high." An old fogy is referred to as a "high wheel." A chaperon is known as a "pace maker." A cheap bicycle is called a gaspipe" machine. A professional racer is a "pro." TWO AMERICANS RELEASED.

Swan- son, a native of Sweden, and Antoine Delpy, who was born in France, ap peared in Judge Pierce's court today and expressed their desire to be made full-fledged citizens of this republic. The ceremony of converting an alien into a citizen is always interesting, but more especially when the would be citizen knows little or nothing about the laws of the country of his adoption, and the court is inclined to be a little severe. Such a case was evidenced this morning. After a num ber of simple questions concerning tne government of this country had been asked and answered, partially at least by the court, the following inquiry was put to the applicant for citizen ship: "Who was the first president of the United States?" No answer. 'Don't you know, he lived 100 years ago." 'Oh, so long!" replied the other. "I cannot so many years remember. I was not born." "Well, did you ever hear of General Lafayette? He was your countryman, and a great friend of our first presi dent," said the court "Yees, I think I hear of him, hut I dont know." "Well, did you ever hear of Wash ington, George Washington?" Yees, that's heem, sure. Great man, replied the Frenchman, and be fore long he was enrolled under the stars and stripes. ABOUT THE SAME. SAN PRANiCISlCO. July 30.

Our Grandmothers Were Not All We Have Been Told, The young woman of the present generation who ventures to have a headache or "nerves" is immediately confronted by indignant critics with lier grandmother, if the grandmother is living the fact of her continued ex istence is made to tell, and if she sleeps with her fathers her grandchild is con- ronted with her ghost, the ghost is en- I dowed with as many excellencies as those with whom Betsv Trotwood en dowed the niece who never was born. And as poor David Copperfield was re proached with the virtues of his imag inary sister, so the granddaughter of the period is reproached with the ghost ly perfection of her grandmother, who never had a headache at least accord ing to tradition but who, or the con trary, was a model of physical perfec tion. When it comes to the testimony of those who saw the grandmother in flesh that is "another story." Abbe Eobin, chaplain in Itochambeau's army during the revolution, wrote of American women in 1782: "They are tall and well-proportioned, their feat ures are generally regular, their com plexions are generally fair and without color. At 20 years of age the women have no longer the freshness of youth. At 35 or 40 they are wrinkled and de crepit." And Chevalier Louis Felix de Bear our, after praising the beauty of the American women to the skies, says: 'At the age of 25 their form chances. and at 30 the whole of their charms have disappeared." These observers were not mere hasty travelers, but had ivea here for years, and their verdict is that the women of nearly 100 years ago snowea a fragile beautv and earlv decline which this end of the centnry uauiaci, wnn ner athletic record and her prolonged youth, would scorn. Dusky Politeness. A story of the colored man's fondness for good words is furnished by the New York Tribune.

"Horace Greeley once said: 1 doubt whether man, woman or child, white or black, bound or free, virtuous or vi cious, ever accosted or reached forth a hand to Abraham Lincoln and detect ed in his countenance or manner any repugnance or shrinking from the prof fered contact, any assumption of supe riority, or betrayal of disdain.' "Frederick Douglas, the orator and patriot, is credited with saying: 'Mr. Lincoln is the. only white-man with whom I have ever talked, or in whose presence I have ever been, who did not consciously or unconsciously betray to me that he recognized my color.' "George Bancroft, the historian, al luding to this characteristic, which was never so conspicuously manifested as during the darker days of the war, beautifully illustrates it in these mem orable words: 'As a child, in a dark night, on a rug-ged way, catching hold of the hand of its father for guidance and support, Lincoln clung fast to the hand of the people and moved calmly i through the gloom.'"
