18 THE PITTSBUKG- DISPATCH SUNDAY, APEIL .12, 1S9L BOFA'LTY IN DANGER. Prince Ferdinand Has a Chance to Learn How the Czir Feels.; ASSASSINS HOVEKLNG HEAR MM. The tnssian n!er Fortifies Himself Against Tear by Liquor. GOSSIP OP EECEXT NEWS ETEXTS twnirrsx roa tits DiKrATCH.l Ferdinand ol Bulgaria is the latest scion of European royalty to experience the terrors tbat occasionally I 'tf'Z& accompany tue tirinlprtrt nf rPlfll. ",ffi iiir. If the shad KwJl o w s pronounced enough which sur round his throne have fair opportun ity they will likely relieve Ferdinand of anv ambition he p may have to poe as oue ot the powers Prince FnU.nand. by making an in teresting corpse of him. If reports be true, the menacing assassins are in Ituasian em ploy. One would think Alexander HL had experienced enough worry himself, by reason of threatened assaksination, to have come thought or care for the eelines of others, but it is not unlikely that the quiet Ktories which every now and then creep out of Kussia of his perpetual drunkenness, are founded on fact, and the Czar is so dulled in tense that he is incapable of experiencing regard lor others. Ferdinand is a prince of the house of Saxe-Coburg, who was elected to ocenpy the throne in ISS7 as a result of the treat of Berlin alter the Itussian-Turkey war. His country has an estimated population ot something over 3,000.000, with a standing army ot L'O.OCO. As will be observed, a con test at arms with ltuss.a is out ot the ques tion, but his relationship with other power ful ruling families requires that some method be at command to do away with him, if that be necessary. Conviction of the Nicely. A well-known Pittsburg jurist in dis cussing the Nicely case last week expressed the ncpe that he would never be called upon to pass sentence upon an individual con victed on circumstantial evidence only. As showing how injustice may be done by rely ing on circumstantial evidence, he cited several cases in which the proof was ap parently even more conclusive than in the case of the Nicelvs and yet had been en tirely overthrown by subsequent events. In concluding, be suggested that a law he iranied allowing a period of about five yeais to elapse belore the extreme penalty should be carried out in the case of those convicttd on circumstantial evidence alone. Colonization of Palestine. The suggestion that the Hebrews or Eu rope colouize Palestine is attracting consid erable attention. It has been questione-i whether their rricinal home would accom modate the 3,000,000 now on the Continent, and aqaiu whether they would accept were the historic lands tendered them. There is room enouzli, doubtless, but the second question is the serious oue. A number of ilicrts in this line have been uiace in the past but each tailed, and it has been pretty generally agieed that it is impossible to tiring those of different nationalities together end make them live harmoniously, so steeped ore they in national prejudices. As one o! the leaders in the movement said: !It would requite a greater miracle to bring all the Hebrews together than was required for their dispersion, and a greater miracle still, each day, to prevent their caeer departure to the countries of their birth." Thus, after sli that has been said to the contrary, love of country seems to be stronger than that of blood or creed. Protlaced a Hundred Booka. It is worthy of note that Charlotte 31. Tonge, the authoress of that sterling work, "The Daisy Chain," is now engaged ou her 101st book. To those who have pro duced one book in a lifetime, and know what labor it entails, work which Miss mge. has accom- - , ?n my "hed i V-lh full force, and still more when it is remembered that many, if not the mu joritv, of her books are lounded on and treat of historical sub jects, which class of literary p.rodnctions it will be granted rtquire more care and study than the ordinary story of fictitious vein. Critics will say that Miss Yonge has written too much to always write wtll, but there is no questioning the popularity of her prodactions, and it has long ago been admitted that the popular book must have merit ot some kind to provoke demand, and as Miss Yonge has accumulated a competerce from works of such unqualified purity of tone and style that anyone, be tliey old or younj, need never be ashamed to confess having read them, she ought to be satisfied, whether the critics are or not Miss Yongo is now a white-naired lady of 67 years, with r strong, but kindiy, face, showing the un mistakable markings of her lung labors with braiu and pen. Barnum's Kepulntion for Humliugging. "Barnum is dead," said the telegraph last Tuesday just as the shades of night were falling. A great and typical American character had gone who will be misted iu the future None will miss the great show man more than those who trotted out regu larly his wonderful humbugging exploits. At this moment, before the writer lay a publication issued a few days after the de struction of Barnum'-. famous museum for the second time in 1Si58. It is interesting in that it shows how Barnum's advertising abilities and his methods were appreciated at the time. It says: "So more fat women or Circassian lovely ones, nor woony aorses, nor Aluinos. nor Wb.at-Are-Tl.eys, nor Joyce Heths, nor mermaids above all, alas and alack 1 no more gorillas, beating tlie far-resounding drums of their celebrated bosoms. Tne re morseless fire that would not spare the won ders at the corner of Ann street was jcalou ot the same wonders upon Broadway; and the sad, rustic and mournful maid of the cooking stoyc and chamber shall sigh in Tain for the glories of Barnurn departei!." " 'Departed, never to return;' Tor it is an nounced that the famous sbowrnan has shown his last chow, aud in quieter walks will seek that repose which giants and learned seals denied him. And now, that auiid the ruins of the late hall of amuse ment, and happily the bleaching boaes of some monarch ofttfe Jorest, we Pensively re call the days of the past, how visionary and unsubstantial even the Barnumbian glories seem! If the worthy host of those halls of fairy insisted that it was all humbug, it i3 for us, especially in his day ol misfortune, to contradict him? Yet the giraffe was not u humbug; and what ingenious lover cfnit uial history will not hear with ylesurethat be, sbe, or it is convalescent? Nor Was the young alligator, or the sagacious seal, or the horrible anaconda or boa a humbug. And gi,KgsSa ;PtiSiiP vris-j) v who that bas gazed upon the amiable giantess, or the somewhat too cheruhin Tat child, or the dwarfs, but will allow that, he lajg'nt nave inwardly remarked a want of lervent desire to proseculo the acquaint ance, the objects of his attention were cer tainly not humbugs. The giantess, how ever wild, was certainly a very tall woman; the fat boy was nndeniably fat; the dwarfs vere Lilliputians. It was not these, it was the tradition of au earlier day that made the mischict. Tne levees of these genuine per sonages were haunted. The room was per vaded by the presence of the phantom ot the woolly horse. Tbehost ot the mermaid peered at the too sensitive visitor from every corner. Perpetually he smelted India rub ber and thought a: Joyce Ileth." And so it went on. 'Written many years aso, it will serve as a panegyric to-day, for it speaks of that portion of Barnum's lite that will be remembered long after his later career has beeu forgotten. A Real Rainbow for the Stose. Hubert Herki'mer, tlie distinguished Eng lish artist, is engaged in experimenting how to produce a "real rainbow" on the stage of the theater, which is a part of his School of Art atBusby.Hcrts. Mr. Herkomer is not only a thorough artist, hut a genius, having l llrpmlv succeeded in producing some ad mirable and new stage effects which are in use in England now. "With him the study is a hob by. He is also the de Hubert Jlerkomer. signer of a number of Henry Irving's most striking costumes. If he succeeds in his nresentefforts who knows but what we will have some time in the future, "real bolts of lightning," "real water-spouts," etc, on the stage; perhaps, it might also be possible to produce a genuine tornado in embryo. Of course, dramatic people should not be al lowed to produce this last phenomena until they demonstrate perfect control of it. But, it would be a mighty good idea to try it on some of tlie "barn stormers,"who are bunko jng audiences all over this country at pres ent. A suffering people would not hold the experimenters responsible if they would temporarily lose control in this case. Tlie Tomb of Alexander. They've found him again! Who? Why, Alexander the Great, of course the very same fellow who sighed for more worlds to conquer and was himself conquered by Gambrinus. In this last case the plaguey fool has, as usual, been lugging his tomb around in strange places, and it serves him richt that he has been nabbed again as a re sult Althouch repeatedly advised to set tle down somewhere and throw dust on him self, he would go gadding about. "What makes his actions doubly suspicious is that he is on each and every occasion of his ap prehension found in possession of a different kind of casket; once it was a gold one, then it was of glass, and again of lead, and inas much as he has been out of wort for some time past, it is not known how he comes by them all. All nonsense aside, these repeated and confidently expressed stories of the finding of relies and remains of antiquity, only to be denied on investigation, tend to weary and disgust those interested m such matters and make them skeptical when genuine and valuable finds are ma Je. As far as Alexan der is concerned, there seems to be but little doubt that if ever his last resting place is found it will be at Alexandria, where his body was conveyed after his death at Baby lon." But really there is little hope of ever finding a vestige of either tomb or remains. .Tuliu-. Csesar is said to have seen Alexan der's. tonib. as did also Chrysostom in the fourth century, but since that time it 1ms beeu lost sight ol completely, and it is more than likely that in the many conflicts which have taken place in the vicinity oi the place supposed to contain his remains between Arabs and others it has beeu entirely de stroyed. Picture of Animal In Motion. Although by birth an Englishman, Prof. Edward Muybriuge, whose lectures on animal motion are creating such a sen sation in Europe, really owes bis suc cess to a liberal American spirit that enabled him to carry on his experiments, demonstrating that motion photograph ically expressed was vastly different from KVi kvM that optically visi- fljWy ble.

He has also "the ad vantage of a striking presence, his fuoe in dicating great strength of character and purpose, and resembling very strongly a favonta and famous model of the Munich school of some 15 years since. The results attained bv Muybridge and his cameras were a revelation when first given to the public some years ago, and opened up a new method ot study to the art student However, if the scientific world wassurpnsed, it was still more so afterward, when it was found that the truths, thought to have been discovered by Muybridge. were long known to the Japanese, who had been quietly painting what appeared to be stiff-winged storks and cranes, which, ad mittedly artistic enough in conception for decorative purposes, were not known to be as scientifically correct as they wer?. It is also interesting to note in this connection that Frederic Remington, the remarkable artist made famous recently through the medium of his illustrations for the higher class magazines, approaches nearer in his sketches to the way iu which a camera would express motion than any artist known. It is greatly to his credit that he is able to draw so realistically without displeasing effect, lor the stillness of the Muybridge pietures often attain the grotesque," and to follow out the idea in the drawing ot figures in pictures would, in the hands of most iier sons.retult in ridiculous effects.

Davis, of the Eighteenth Regiment, returned from Cincin nati yesterday, where ho had been attending tho wedding of his brother. Tns Inspections in tho Second Brigade, which had been interrupted by the coke troubles, will bs resumed at once, with tho exception of those or the Tenth Regiment, most of which were to have taken place last week. Colonel Perchment, ot the Fourteenth Regiment, has announced that an important meeting of the orhcers will be held at the Cen tral Armory to-morrow evening. It is probable that the Colonel will announce his appointment of Regimental Adjutant awhls time. The boys now have an elegtnt new stock of stories to keep them running until after next camp. Things wero rather dull around the , armories during the past few months, as the couccuon ox iairy tales nau almost given our, but now any fellow who can't tell a pretty good storv of "wnat wo aid in the coke regions" will not bo in it at all. The dedication of the Hartranft monument will take place on Decoration Day at .Norrls town. An interesting programme will, be car ried out and it is expected most of the promi nent National Uuard orlicers will bo present. It was tirst tboacht that representative compa nies from different parts of the Division would be present, but jt Is now practically decided that only a portion of the First Brigade will bo there. ( Ma jor A. J. Logan, tho new Quartermaster of the Second Brigade, has been ill for several weeks past, consequently conld not give much attention to the duties during theexcitoment in 'Westmoreland county. Major Curtin, Brigade Commissary, handled both depart ments in a most acceptable manner, as all the bors will testify who helped topntaway bis supplies. Tlie Major Is an old war horse, and has grown white in the service. He likes to get a crowd of the yonnger enthusiasts around him and tell them tales of the big war of SO years ago. The reason the Tenth Regiment was selected to remain at Mt. Pleasant while the Eighteenth returned home, was due to the occupations of the bulk of the men who compose the two organizations. The members of the latter regi ment are mostly machine and mill workers or tradesmen, hose presence is most necessary lor the running of their business at home, while the bulk of the members ot the former organization are farmers, whose time is not so valuable at this season of the year. General McClelland considered this point carefully be fore he issued his order. That most important question as towhether the trooDS while stationed in Westmoreland county, could go into Fayette county in the pursuit of law-breakers, or to quell a disturb ance, has not yet been definitely settled, as de cisions pro and con from officers of the guard and members of tbe bar have been given dur ing the past week. Tbe point should be set tled at once and the decision sent to the officers of the Tenth Regiment, as tho county line is close to much of the property now under guard, and complications might arise at any iiiue. a iie impression at air. iieasant is that tbe troops can only do duty in Westmoreland county, as tue nenn ot tnat county alone called for their assistance. The boys or the Eighteenth are not sorry to get home after their ten days' experience in the coke regions. Although pretty fairly housed and fed during their stay, the private business of many of them suffered pretty severely dur ing their enforced absence. The work of the Tenth and Eighteenth Regiments, during the past two weeks, has been of the highest order, proving that the citizen soldier has not been an expense to the State tor nothing. The presence of the National Gnard at Mr, Pleasant and Scottdale undoubtedly prevented the destruc tion of thousauds of dollars worth of property, as tbe feeling of some ot the ignorant strikers was most intense immediately after the killing of the seven men at Morewood. General McClelland and General Wiley are to be congratulated on tbe soldierly manner in which they handled their men, as their discretion, no doubt, saved ra A page would be insuffi cient'to describe the pat terns of the various ' ma terials from which our stock of spring suits has been made.

Pittsburg will be treated this week to the largest baby show by all odds that was ever given in Pennsylvania.
