When railroad companies went any
thiDf from tbe public or from legislat
ive authority they plead that radroads
area great public necessity ; that tbe
Iron highway ia our true civiliaer, and
the world would go backward I! the
work ol railways were brought to a
pause. This ia certainly true, but the
people and the working classes have
aome rights which the roads are bound
A.J 1
to rwpact. Charters are grantea oy
the Legislatures, lands are given b1.
Oongreee and the right of way aero
private domains for the benefit of the
public as well as tbe strckboluers.'
But the railroad magnates do not care
a penny for the putlic, and take
the position that the roads are built
"by men who invest their money and
-expect to get only a fair profit." What
is a fair profit The weaitn 01 toe
Stanford, Orockers, Goulds, Hunting
tons and VanderbilU, represent
ing a it does something anr
passing the dreams of Aladdin
and Monte Cristo, has been accumu
lated f'om these fair profits
on railway inveetmeiite. To them
the wealth of the country, its devel
opment, its growth and its prosperity
are nothing, except so far as these
things pour new streams of wealth
into tbsir coffers. Hiring one ww to
do two men's work Is a part of ttie
admirable system by which railroad
magnates are able to build palaces,
buy princely works of art, and skim
the cream from every material pleas
ure that the world affords. This
pleaiure and wealth are tbe products
ofoppreeslng labor. If workingmen
received a fair compensation there
would ba a mora ojnitabla division of
wealth, not on the agrarian plan, bat
the wraith earned by honest toil.
Capital and labor have locked horns,
as, M
fit vl
,of tl
and tbe contest will go on until ad
IimIaiI bv the natriotiBm and justice
ilia conntrv. Tbe Knights of Lab
will gradually drag into their ranks all
the laboring classes Just as the leading
aecfmionlsta dragged the whole South
into the rebellion. The organization
of theKnlghtaof Libor Is now so thor
ough that at the signal every man
and woman must stop work. There
can be no resistance. Tbe order is
absolute and Imperative. Their per
sonal preference may be to remain at
their poet, because a week's Idleness
brings hnnger and want to wives and
children, but these considerations are
not to be consulted. Good workmen,
also, wbo for any rcaron do not care
to aseoclato themselves with the or
der, or come under its pliaiure, suffer
great harduhips from its operations
They find themtelves excluded from
employment, and the mums of gain
ing a living tor themselves and their
families. Hat thia is tho only system
on which an oruaolr.Ulon of this kind
can he rnn. It is the oi l system of
absolutism, the subordination of indi
vidual rlghti and interests to the real
w el fire of the many. Butter relations
between capital and labor will be the
outgrowth of this conflict, provided tho
laboring classes violate no law, commit
no outrage upon the rtyliti of others.
Throogh Die gioatli, the wealth, the
arrogance of great corpoiatlons, the
need of aome effective plan of do
feme for the maisM the men and
women whose lalor and skill are es
sential to the success of the world's
material interests bin long been felt.
The if hi, e has come, and it cannot he
evaded, and the sooner it is met the
better for the whole country.
The principal surjict of interest in
England at the present titno is the
bill thai Mr. Gladstone is t.i bring be
fore Pari iaiuent for the settlement of
the land question and the establish
ment of home rule In Ireland. The
gren'.ef t curioHity exists as to what the
(lit Ails of the hill will be, but little is
known about them. It is understood
that the landlords, like tho Chinese
on (he Pauitio coast, "must go." Their
land ia to be aid for at rates far be
low the va'ue 83 loDg maintained ly
English bayonet?, and so often op
posed by assassination avenging evic
tion. The teuton orr themnelva to be
tviriedl This is the ond of the long
list tl wrongs the land-owners have
inflicted upon the tenants they op
press. At length, after long years of
bitter wrong, the wrong is to be
rightsd. Once more the apposite
words of the poet come true "the
mills of the gods gtind slowly, but
they grind exceeding fine." Lording
it over their "Inferiors," exacting from
them tbe last penny that could be ex
torted, turning them out of their
homes when too poor to pay their
rent; blind, deaf and heart
paralysed to the denpalr of
men, to the tsars of women, and to the
waitings of babes, by the aid of police
and soldiery they have turned them
out in heat and in the co'd, shelterless
beneath inclement skies, unshaded
from the burning sun. Unheeding
remonstrance, untouched by pity, mer
cilees as ravaging tiger, the landholder
dtBpited man's condemnation, scorned
Gad's commandment, and "ground the
faefs of tbe poor." And now their day
of reckoning has come, the sins of
the fathers are visited upon tbe third
and the f jurth generation. It is no
light thing that is coming npon these
criminals and inheritors of crime to
whom the outcry of the oppressed ap
.peered to be powerless in face of their
own might The attitude of the peo
ple of late years, the difficulty of col
lecting rents, and the general depres
aion of trade have driven many of the
Jand-owners to mortgage their estatos
to keep up the show required by
"their position." The reduction of
their rentals from the laat land act,
find the subsequent low prices of agri
?ultnral produce, difabled them from
and now
of whet
their embarrassments,
they will be deprived
give them state end
Thoee who have made
them loans will swallow up the pro
ceeds that wiJl come from the govern
ment In scant pay for their land, and
at this timed depression, when the
prospects of even experienced men are
gloomy, they will have to "f aie a
frowning world." Frowning for who
will have sympathy for ruined land
lords in Ireland, wbo themselvei had
no pity on suffering men, no com
panion for the helpless widow, but
evicted, evicted, and still evicted tbe
unfortunates who were guilty pf the
sin of having no more that could be
forced from them by the extortion
that had fattened, in ostentation and
luxury, upon the gaina of the poor
man's toil. The blow of heaven'a
avenging band, thecompensation that
justice awards are tbey not an
answer to appealing! of despair, tbe
outcries of woes, the weeping of tha
victims of greed and rapacity ? All is
tbe result ot the English policy of
brutal force. The will of the people
went for nothing; their petitions have
been treated with contempt and their
supplications divided. And now
these down-trodden ones do as tha
worm is said to do turn upon the
heel tha1, trod them down. After
many rantlc wrestling with the
pythotha', held them In its foul in
foldins, atlast,by acalm policy.stern,
detorhiined and resolute, the wrongs
of centuries aio arrested, and the vie
timsgo out free. To read the dark
record of Ireland's wrongs from the
sixteenth centary to our own day,
then to gnu npon what is now pre
paring by an English administration,
is to lobtf upon one cf tbe great phe
nomena ol a century that, from tbe
French revolution onward, bas
abounded in social wonders. Such is
the" fruit ot the reign of force In Ire
land. In vain might and strength
ut forth their efforts; there Is a
vigor In the human soul, a power in
the human will, a divine justice In
the decrees of man's Creator, that
breaks the firmest bond and abetters
the mightiest arm that seeks to dom
inate right and crush justice by the
pitiless brutality cf force.
The cryatcui of killing out the In
diem by the sword and by tho Intro
duct on of the white man's vices ia so
atrocious, so revolting to every Junt
instinct of human nature, that out
raged public feeling is protesting
(gainst a continuance of a species of
barbarity that is a dixgrace to our
country and-a blot upon our national
character. The expression of public
sentiment upon the matter has re
sulted in some attempt at a change of
policy. Not only has violence and the
introduction of vices wronged the In
dian, but our whole syBtera of dealing
with him Iiph boon wanting in correct
principle and In sound policy. The
Indians have been enronragnl to be
hir and improvident. They have
hi'en supported in a way that is an in
ducement to Idleness. Their revenues
are paid with no conditions for effort
tard advancement in civiliia-
tion on their part, while the
occupation of lands that had been
theirs put an ond to the vigorous pur
suits of tbe hunting ground. Tut I
maw of white people npon a reserva
tlon, lot them have Income enough to
live without work, subject tbem to
scoundrels who ini ose upon and rob
them and offer them every induce
ment to vice, and deprive them of ao
cess to civil Ued lociety and the right
ot becoming cit'r. sna, and what sort of
conditions would exist among them?
Can anybody doubt that they would
out-Indian the Iudian in atrocities,
crime, dissipation, debauchery and
barbarity ? Efforts are now making to
some extent to teat the civilizing in
fluence of education among the In
dians, which tho efforts of roiseion
aril's liis proved bo capable of reform
ing savago habits among barbarous
peoples in diderent t ortious of the
g'.ohe. At the Hampton institute
ia Virginia, where Indian children,
selertad from among the tribes, are
taught "white man's ways," and re
ceive school and manual instruction,
the results, an fur as the pupils have
been concerned, have been encour
aging. The mature Iudian, habituated
to a wild lite from infancy, cannot be,
ai a rule, weaned from his unfortunate
condlliou. The Indian children can.
They develop a quick intelligence,
and give satisfaction to their teachers.
But when they go back to the wig
wam, here one and there another,
among their race, what can anything
they can do amount to, especially as
there Is a natural disposition among
the people to dislike what is new and
strange and unconformable to the
ways they are accustomed to, and that
are a standing rebuke and reproach to
many cf their custims? The chil
dren want educating on a large scale
that they niay be redeemed while
redemption is possible. Is the ex
reuse an obstacle? It was stated
in Congress the other day "that
Congress votss more money for the
maintenance cf the Indians than the
same number of common white labor
ers can earn." 1( there is money
thus misdirected there is money for
proper and useful direction. There
are newsarilv difficulties in introduc
ing au extended system of edurntion
among Indian children. We have
long been pursuing an unsound policy,
and to counteract the evil effects pro
duced and introduce correct principles
is not An easy 1uk. We have not only
to do what is right, but to undo what
we have done that is wrong. The
task is difficult but by no means im
possible, as what has been accom
plished at Hampton demonstrates.
We are Americans full ol resources,
qniiik to discover and apply means to
brinr about euds. We can do ao In
this case: reclaim the Indian, make
him a Uoil fearing, self-respecting man,
and a patriotic, law-abiding citisen.
We have only to will and we shall
find a way.
Tells of Her Career in America
What She Thinks of Maty Ander
sonAdvice to Neophytes.
Mile. Rbes, besidea being a great
actress, Is a woman of culture, intel
lect, refined manners and conversa
tional powera of a high order, She ia
also a close observer of what passes
around ber, and a half Lour spent in
her society, listening to her origiiat
views of men and things, expressed
in felicitous language, which owes
much of its charm to her vivacity of
manner and mobility of countenance,
la a treat to be remembered. An Ap
pial reporter had that pleasure yes
terday, and herewith publishes to
much of it aa will likely Interact the
Mile. Rhea received tha reporter ia
the parlor of' her apartments at the
Peabody. She wai dreesed in a red
velvet wrapper trimmei with Valen

gray Bkye terrier of that canine
fierceness ot expression peculiar to
the terrier barked bis approval ot
tha atranse visitor. Through the open
door of an adjoining room the light
form ot Mademoiselle's faithful little
French maid. Marie, could be seen
bustling about and arranging tbe ward

Mademoiselle's welcome wai cordial

piper criticism ot my acting. That is
only done by beginners," said Made
moiselle with an arch smile, "but ex
perienced actors rarely do it. After
our hearts nave Deen nroien twenty
times by the newspapers we cease to
read tbem."
Do not actora often get valuable
hints from the critics?"
That depends upon wbo tbecritio
may be. There is Francirque r-arcey, for
instance, tbe greatest dramatic critic
in France. He is a man who has de
voted his life to the study of dramat c
ar. and wbosa verdict can make or
unmake a reputation. His great rpu
tation makea it incumbent upon him
to express no opinion except such aa
an actor's merits or demerits may sus
tain, Even if he had a perronal
grudge against tbe person criticise d
tie would no: oa-e to letinac innuence
him, for if be were to express an
opinion that could not stand the test
of the most searching criticism his
brother crit'es would only be too glad
to make it tho occasion of tearing him
to pieces. Besides, one can well afford
to listen to a man like that, who is
qualified by education and a life
long training to give ont
hints that are sure to be
valuable. But tbe average dramatic
critic is nit a ma a ot that caliber, es
pecially here in America, wheio the
writer who diej as you call it the
dramatic notices is not ppecia'ly
trained for the purpose, and in nino
cases out of ten only winds up a hard'
day's work of general reporting by
"noticing" a play. Sometime! it is
the city editor wbo acta aa diametie
critic, sometimes the river editor, and
occasionnllythe horse reporter. Ol
cc ursa critunsm of that sort is not val
uable ; on Hie contrary, it may damage
the aititt who undertakes to be guided
by it, for. the chances are that no tw.i
critics wjll agree upon any one point."
A knoj'k at the acor int irrupted the
conversation. A waiter brought in a
card. "Permit me," said mademoiselle,
and taking the card lrom tbe tray read
the rjame. t "IV 11 her I am engaged at
present, but wnl be pleased to see ber
at this hour to-morrow." Tbe waiter
withdrew with tbe message.
"A young lady who desires a private
Interview," said mademoiselle, with a
smile. "Do you know what thst
means? It means that the poor girl
wants to go on the stage. I get these
applications by the dor. in at every
large city where I play. It is ixtraor
dinary how widespread among Ameri
can girls is the desire to become an
"What is your a 1 vice generally?"
"In nine (asesoutof ten ye, often
er than that I say to them, 'Let the
atane alone,' and in every case, with
out exception, do 1 diacouragea young
lady from adopting the stage as a ca
reer if she hat a couif jrttble home
and an bssured support or a
prospect of marriage. I always
n-k tbem, have vou a good home, and
if they say yes, I tell her to go t ack
home and stay theie, for she will net
have been on the stage two weeks be
fore she will retnm to her home rf
her own accord. It will take but that
length of timo for ber to become dis

the glamour that surrounds it when
viewed from bafore the curtain. It
will take but tw6 weeks for her ta be-'
e we hra'tsick and weary ot the hard
ships, the fatigue, the arduous labors,
the drudgery, tbe jealousies, the petty
rivalries of the stage, and if she has a
home she will fly there quick enough.
Talking tbout the hardships of sUge
life, I am reminded of a good thing
saiit by a lady once in my company.
We' were roused at 3 o'clock in the
morning to fitch a train a freexing
morning, with snow ot the ground
and aa wa stood there, waiting for a
bus, yawning in each other's faces,
and shivering with cold, this lady re
marked: "And yet there are peorla
who are stage (truck."
"How Is it if the joung lady be poor
a id has no borne?"
"It she is poor, without a home, tal
ented, ambitious and not afraid to
work I encourage her to come on.
Poverty ia a great motive powf r, and
when a woman understands that it is
either work, eudurance and hardship
or ntarvation, or worse, she may, if tal
enteJ, hope to succeed on the stage.
But young, pretty wcinen with good
homes have no business on the stage.
Not long ago a charming young lady,
wbo lives io au Kaitern city, telloweU
me to another city and begged me to
take her in my company. She was
rich, well educated, refined, moved in
the bett circles and was the idol of a
happy home. Ob, she was so hmid
somet I said to her, 'My dear girl tbe
stage is not for such as you. You have
vouib, beauty, wealth and are fitted
by nature to eiorn some good man's
home. Go home and get married.'
She acted npon my advice, went home
and the other day I learned of ber
marriage to a rich and handsome
young man."
"But how about glory and fame and
all tbat sort of thing are not these
worth sacrificing home for?"
"Glory and fame, ah, how few reach
that pinnacle of success, and how
many perish by the way. And even
those who attain the very xenith
have suffered and endured b j much in
getting there that, as we aay in French,
'Le jsu ne vant pas la chandelle.' " j

"Is it your opinion thataweman

"Yes. She must not only have

"Do actresses experience any emo
tion in kissing or being kiesed by men
on the ttage?''
"At first they do. They are embar
rassed and shrink from tbe necessity
of it, and tbe result ia that tbey act
with constraint and a wk war drew, and
hence unnaturally. But that weais
off in course of time, and we become
so indifferent to it that it is like kiss
ing so much wco j. I have reached
that point that I look upon the man I
have to embrace on tbe stage aa part
of the furniture, a mere lay figuio."
"Do yon regard the outlook for the
success of legitimate drama in Amer
ica as hopeful? '
"Judging from what I saw in New
Orleana I cannot say that I do. I saw
there, at tbe H. Charles Tbe iter, a
etxk company rf actors of such gen

is a company in Paris that surpasses
them. Yet they played only to fair btisi-
nsts. Marie wainwrignt is in

In the last set she recalls Sarah Bern

are all fine, even down to the supers.

she did it to pet faction. It was mag
nificent. Yet naming out of that thea

Wainwright's acting as nice. Nice,"
said Mile. Rhea, throwing her hands
and lifting ber eyes to the ceiling,
"nice, just as if she were talking of a
piece ot cake or a p'ate of ice-cream."
"Have you seen many of our Amer
ican att:rj and actresses?"
"I have seen Lotta and Mary An
derson. Lot '.a ih a very lovable little
woman; how exquisitely endowed to
make a home happy. Such a charm
ing little actress."
What ab)ut Mary Anderson?"
"Sho ia the loveliest cieatnre I ever
saw on tbostage and one of the graud
est actrefgee, with the figure and grace
rf a queen auu the voice ot an angel.
The critics say nhe is void ond lacks

ionnhle and pasce fiom mouth tD
mcuth without inquiry, no one seeni
irglocareto challeejre it. I saw her
p'ay ''Julia," in the Hunchback. Her
comedy was perfect. I can imagine
nothing more charming, but in one
scene where the woman in her is
aroused to action she is withering in
hi r passionate fire. (She fairly towers
above everybody on tbe r-Uge in ber
majestic force and beauty. Tell me that
woman lacks tire. It's nonsense.
Let her play a part suitable to ber
queenly beauty, her magnificent pres
ence, her superb olce and she will
show them whether there's fire in her."
Wait till she undertakes such parts
as Kichel and K'atori p'ayed, then
people will call her Mary Anderson
the great. With her beauty and fig
ure she should play none but heroic
parte. Then she would fiud hersolf in
her element.

Alderman Jaebne's Arrest be Lead
ins; Topic of Conversation
T he Great Steal.
Nw York. March 18. At tbe cluba
and in the theaters and hotel lobbies
to-ni(bt the arrest and confession of
Alderman Jaebne are tbe all-absorbing
topics of conversation. Through
all tbe investigations into the alleged
bribery of aldermen to secure the
Broadway surface railroad franchise,
the general belief has obtained that
the bottom would never be reached.
To night, however, tbe general tone
ol conversation ia reversed, and a con
fident hope ia expressed that all the
facts will be laid bare, and tbe
guilty persons be brought to jus
rice. Tbe release of Alderman
Jaebne on bail was looked upon
for a time in many police
circles aa a means to enable him to
get beyond tbe reach of the law, to
matter what the costs. Politicians
met one another wi h knowing ex
pression of countenance, and seemed
to consider the forfeit of 115,000 (the
surety) bnt a small amount for the
alderman to pay for his liberty, con
sidering be received $20,000 for one
vote. It wai nreed he could pay the
bail and be 15000 ahead. On the
other hand it was urged thst though
free to wa'k the streets of New York
would not be able to elude tbe detec
lives that are euppo ed to still have
him under surveillance. A city olli
cial who called at police headquarters
to-night gave it as nis opinion that
Inspector Byrnes had woraed too
hard to run the risk to let Jaehne
give them tbe slip, and that wherever
tbe toafeesed bribe-taker west com
petent men from the central oflice
would keen him well in view. In
spector Byrnes refused to divulge his
plans. He would not say whether be
was still watching Jaehne or not
Neither would be say what othor,
if any, aldermen, were on his
l'st. There is every rear on for believ
ing tbat bis lilt is a heavy one, and
that there will he important develop
ments in the matter to-morrow. Tbat
bis men were busy is apparent from
the fact that there were lass than the
usual quota of detective sergeants in
reserve at headquarters. Whether
tbey were following up tbe Jaebne
ma'.ter, or were absent on routine
business, could not be learned, but
there is no doubt that the entire de
tective force, or all of it that could be
spared, had ethers of the city fathers
where they wanted them, and wnere
they could
on them as soon as they were wanted.
It is now known that Inspector
Byrnes's apparency peculiar action in
the matter of Alderman Jaehne and
Mrs. Hamilton's lost silvei ware was
taken with a view to gaining Jaehne's
confidence, and securing the end at
tained. It is also known he did it
with tbe full knowledge and approval
of the Police Commissioners. A ru
mor got abroad about midnight that
several ether aldermen had been
arrested and locked up it po
lice headquarters. It was impossible
to verify the run.or. If any arrests
were maio the prisoners were not

Wont lie fiaya of ihe Gould Strike.
Kansas Citv, Mo., March 18. Mr.
Powderly, in an interview this even
ing, said: "I bave learned tbat the
conference was held here for the con
venience of the Union Pacific dele
gates, and as a central point."
"Will you state what the strike is
' That is what I came to learn, and
I have not yet succeeded entirely.
The men have complained tbat the
company has not kept its sgreement of
a year ago. There ia some question es
to waes, and the matter of discharge
of employes also enters in. Candidly,
I do not eee tho necessity for this
itrike, or f ir its continuance. In fact,
the day of Btrikes is past; I never or
dered ono iu my life, and, with two
exceptione, never failed in an en
deavor to meet employers for settle
ment of differences with emploep. I
have just telegraphed Vice-Preeident
Hoxie, asking for a conference."
, "Caa you give the dispatch ?"
"Yes. It is short, asking simply if
he will ixeet the committee and mysell
for consideration of the pending uifli
cuitief, and if so, when and where."
"What is the temper of the discus
sion to day?"
"Entirely cjlm and rational. The
rxea appear detirous of a speedy ter
mination of the dilhculties and are
disposed to be conciliatory to fares
may ba consistent witn their position.
A session is now in progress which
will probably continue all night. Tbe
alternative of a refusal on the part of
Mr. Hoxie to meet us is under cot
(ideration, but no decision baa been
reached. I do not anticipa a reply
from Mr. Hoxie before to-morrow, hut
it is my belief that the strike will be
ended within a very few days "
In speaking of the reported settle
ment of tbe Texas Pacific troubles, Mr.
Powderly said he was not informed as
to the details, and the renort was not
?eneia11v credited among the Kabts.

Have used Tongaline in many cases
of rheumatism with marked success;
the most important one was that of a
patient, age iil'ty-one, who baa been a
sufferer from that disease for forty
years. In one of his severe attacks I
prescribed Tongaline. and upon the
fifth day he was able to be out, and
also to attend to his business. Have
given Tongaline a fair and impartial
trial, and think it the best remedy 1
have ever found for rheumatism.
