Many years ago, wfyen Phila
delphia was yet young, f and
before Fairmount Park- -wan
ourrht to! its present etita of,
perfection, there waft ' in the
southern portion of Wissahick-
en, near the river drive; a cave,
callO(Indian cave, long since
deKorted, whicli was suppduud at
One time to have been the ren
dezvous of soma of these war
like! people. Various stories had
beeniwaiBperef about by the
more suptn stitious of the people
n th vicinity to the effect that
a man supposed to have been
murdered there long ago had
been seen by several d;!ated
travelers to rise suddenly oat of
the cave, mounted on a black
steed, and pursue'thei. frighten
ed narrators for a considerable
distance iiyd then vanish as
suddenly ni it had appeared. ,
Borne distance 'Bonn ot this
cave there lived a man named
Richard Ashlv. whose beauti
ful and ju couiphif lied daughter
ad suitors galore from all parts
our Uuaker tJity. Among
those was a man named George
Bcyal.who did not meet with
much favor in tueeyea ot his
adored one, but who, neverthe-i
less, continued to pay the most
assiduous attention to the young
lady, much to her displeasure
and the utter disgust of his
numerous rivals. His most bit
ter, opponent was. John Colo
man, who openly expressed the
utmost contempt for George and
vowed to execute a whole cata-
ogue of tragedies if thit youne
gentleman did not cease his
nightly transit'): txrreri Oirard
avenue bridge toward Wissa-
hlckonr lint George -paid no
attention to, 'all these threats
and evefyr available -evening
found him at the Ashly home
stead, where," joining the lire-
side group, Jie listened to the
most extravagant ghost stories,
among the most important that
of tho Indian cave a few rods
below the house.
But all this did not abate the
ardor of the young Bmtor, and
ono, irticulaf feiibiff he de
cided u iop the a!l- uiportant
question and ribk thd chance of
acceptance, as he could not pos
sibly enuun. runner suspense in
the matter. When an oppor-
tu Itycai3 he broached the
sujject with an much elegance
and delicacy as he could muster
to the object of his adoration,
but received a rather flat re
fusal from the lady referred to;
which so incensed cur younu
hero that he abruptly left the
house, and, mounting his horse,
immediately started for home,
Ilia anger, however, did not
prevent him fiom feeling some
what sacred at some unusual
noisjs among tho trees on the
roadside, and his fear increased
as he approached tho cave.
v hen that point was reached
be saw dark object emerge
suddenly from some bushes
near by which looked like a
arge black horse, and on it the
very identical rider he had of
ten beard of at the Ashly house.
The sk'ht made him fairlv sick.
le lelteach ana every hair of
his head rise suddenly upward,
and a Very dully sensation took
possession of his whole being as
the apparition came prancing
toward him. His horse shied
violently and it was with the
greatest dilliculty that the a'li
mal could bo induced to start
forward.
'When he finally got h?a horse
started at a tcrritic galop he
ooked back and saw to his
great consternation the phan
torn horse and rider Mindly pur
suing him and almost at his
heels. He whipped up his horse
in a vatn endeavor to outstrip
the speed ol his mysterious pur
suer, and reached Philadelphia
unharmed. When he reached
the brow of the hill and looked
back he saw for an instant the
figures of a horse and rider
leariy outlined against the sky.
HorroH? he was headless and
carrying his head in his band
The cold sweat st kh! out o his
forehead in great drops and his
poor horse was given out. If 1
could only keep , ahead, he
thought, until I reach the bridge
1 should then be comparatively
safe, for as it is u cd to a great
extent f for travel, the spirit
snook, or whatever it may iw
would be very ain io Disappear,
8o on he dashed and finally
hen the bridiro was trained he
tumci to wo his terrible pursuer
disats car amid fire and brim
atone, but instead tho rider
raised the frightful head which
liu had car. ed And aimed it tii
rectly at thatof our young hero.
George tried w uougo .ne oiow.

' ; The fifty-first Congress closed
at noon last Wednesday;.' add
there" was a sigh -of relief
throughout the whole' land. : It
was the most profligate t Con
gress of American history, and,
oven ' when condemned, by the
people by unexampled : popular
majorities, after its first 8668100,
it continued its shapeless profli
gacy until the moment of its
deatn.' f ?. t-..5 -ii i4i ,
The people can hardly realize
the measure :of profligacy and
jobbery of' ,thd Congress.' that
lust passed into history.
When it came into power with
k Senate and President in polit
ical harmony with it, the Treas
ury was overflowing with eur-
lus revenues, and reduced taxes
,nd reduced revenues were :the
unger-cry of the people.
w hen it ciosea its Plotted re-
ord Wednesday thd surplus
was ' scattered;. ' the revenues
largely exceeded by" expendi
tures; a forced loan of $54,000,
1)00 of sacred trust funds ! will
not save the ; Treasury from
bankruptcy, within the next
year; the expenditures '' com
manded by the Fffty-first Con
gress will change1 the Condition
of the Treasury from: $100,000,-
juoo surplus to fully $100,000,000
deficit before the close ot the
next fisca'. year,1 and 'the addi
tional pension, subsidy and other
jobbing Bchemes fastened upon
looted Treasury by positive
law, saddle ' the people of the
nation with over one thousand
millipas of riewtxpenditures.1"
In additional to this bewiider-
mir waste o : . pudhc money,
chiefly in the interest of jobbers,
largely increased taxes nave
been imposed upon the neces
saries of our industries a id up
on the commo i t jcessariea of
life. While the " tsurplus has
been scattered and -' a Treasury
deficit of fully ' $100,000,000 - a
year made inevitable to be 'met
by increased taxea on tne peo-
pler tlie wanton,' cruel addition
al taxes levied on the necessaries
of life, reduced the value of the
earnings of industry fully, ten
per cent, by that percentage 01
luCrvastJ ou urwvico vi uuhcimi
cor sun-pt'on. . " "
That the people should con
demn such a Congress with an
emphasis never before' exhibited
in popular elections waa only
logical, and the close of Fifty,
first Comzress sends more men
into retirement by defeat at the
polUthan was ever known" or
ecn approached in all the politi
cal revolutions of the past. The
great North was revolutionized
by the mad recKiess less 01 tne
Conirress just closed, and for
the first time since the success
ful organization of the Republi
can party, the Northern btates
sent a clear majority of Demo
grata to reversed ihe Republican'
majority of 400,000 in 1888 into
an anti-Republican majority of
200.000 in 1890. . .
No party in all the varied
political history, of American
politics ever Buffered such a de4
feat when it held every depart
ment of power, and no Congress1
since the insane Democratic
Lftcombton Conirress of 1857-8,
ever o insolently defied the peo
pie after its entire policy , and
leadership had been overwhelm
lv condemned by the country!
