It Is notieenblo that tho men mixed up In the past in tho bribing of Juries for street car companies nil jumped town. Too many high otllelnls to pro led. The people want lower fares moro titan they want lower tunnels. They want seats for their fares and better cars. The gang who have sold out tho peo ple to tho Union Traction Company arc throwing dust In the eyes of tho citi zens by shouting "Lower tho tunnels." Their game Is to give tho Traction I'ompany a new frnnchle next year, In consideration of the lowering of the fctnnols. This Is too thin. Tho people bee through the game tow. It won't work. Tho fJoveiument will forco tho low tilng of the tunnels, anyway. What tho peoplo want Is a lowering f car fares, more cai, better accoin taoilatloiis and better service.

Prof. Sumner, In his pessimistic lec ture on marriage, makes tho announce ment that only 10 per cent, of married persons rcallzo all tho happiness nnd nil the Idcnls with which they stnrtcd out In their married life. This Is nu assertion nnd not n fact. While 'It Is doubtless true that married life docs uot realize all that Is expected of It to many persons, yet It Is the mistake of having too great expectations nnd of placing Ideals too high. It Is often tho fault of tho married persons that tho Idealistic fancies of tho ante-nuptial stnto nro not realized. Frequently thcro Is too much Idealism ami too little prac ticability when tho married state Is en tered Into. Tho object of affection Is Idealized and placed upon a pedestal In worship nnd when this object desires food nnd drink commensurate with tho demands of nature there Is nn awaken ing and a shattering of tho Ideal. Until the Interval between Ideal and practical excellence Is lessened there will always bo failure to realize tho Ideal In mar riage. Just how Prof. Sumner obtains Information ns to tho per cent, of mnr Hnges tint nro not realizations of io mantle expectations Is not clear. Ho Is one man and can speak. If he ho mar ried, authoritatively of but 0110 mar riage. People who parade their dis appointments In marrlago beforo tho public tiro tho very ones who would build In Imagination n standard of per fection nnd a model of excellence for tho partner In tho marriage contract, and when that Ideal was not realized to proclaim tho fact from tho houso tops, never giving consideration of tho possibility of their own failure to be In life ns they had boon conceived in fancy. Perhaps Prof. Sumner has fig ures as to tho per cent, of tho unmar ried men and women who hnvo realised nil tho hnpplucss and all tho Ideals with which they started out In llfo. If ho has he would contribute nu Interest ing chnptcr to a much mooted contro versy by making them public. Homo of tho German manufacturers are repoiteJ to hnvo criticised tho loco motives of American manufacture by stating they were "made by tho dozen." Tho probability Is that tho real ground for the criticism was tho fact that they were sold by tho dozen In competition with tho product of tho German imiuu- ' facturcrs. CLOGGING A CONSUL. COST A CENTRAL AMERICAN DICTATOR 850,000. Probably the Mont Dramatic KpUodt I'.ver Itaactcil In Oitntemola Overt Act Directed AuulnM John Mageei Mrltlah Ofllcbil. The recent report from San Francisco of the death of John Mugce recall on of the most dramatic episodes ever enacted on the Central A merlcan coast Tweuty-llvc years ago Mr. Mngco oc cupied the position of British Vlco Con sul nt uu 'Jose, on the l'nclflc side of Uunlcntuttt. In the course of the fulfill ment of his duty, having" Incurred the cordial dislike of Ittillnu llnrrlos, tho flrtator of that time, the subordinates of the Government were not slow to imitate their superior by moling out to Mr. Magcc every petty nnnoynnco possible. HUH, a Hn'tlsh consul wns a person with whom none cared to Inter fere to any serious extent, until It oc curred to the coiimmandantc of Snn Joco to prove his excessive loyalty to llnrrlos by nu overt net directed against the object or tho dictator's Ill-favor. Purposely sel.lng upon tho Inconveni ent moment when .Mr. Mngco was Just sitting down to lunch, the command ante scut him n peremptory messngu to appear at tho (lovernuicnt otllce forthwith, offering by way of explana tion some trivial matter In dispute. Mr. Magec, It Is said, uot only peremptorily declined to obey tho summons, but forcibly very forcibly ejected the In truding messenger from his presence. Then lie went 011 with his lunch as If nothing particular hud happened. This was apparently all the excuse that the coiniuautlautc wanted to publicly hu miliate the consul, and so, fortifying his eourngc with nn extra quantity of 'mescal, he dispatched a company of ragged soldiers to seize the consul and, protest or no protest, bring him before the representative of (he supreme pow er In San Jose. Mtv Mngco was still nt lunch when the rabble unceremoniously entered his presence, and before he n.onniNo consul maof.f. could defend himself was seized and dragged off to tho commandimte's office. "fco yon won't come when I send for you!" shouted the oltlclal, by this time further Inltnmed by repeated libations. "What have you sot to say for your elf?" "Only this," replied Mr. Magee, calm ly, "that you hnvo committed nn of fenso for which you will be called to a bitter account." "8hall IV roared the commandant; "shall I? In tho meantime, however, you shall receive fifty lushes for your Impertinence." Mr. Mngco folded his arms, aoO without further remark listened to the orders given for his chastisement. liy this tlmo tho other cousuls at Sin Joso had heard of their confrere's ar rest, nnd, led by the American represen tative, liurrleM to tho commnndanto'a ptllco to enter an energetic protest. It wns nil, however, of no nrall, and in tho space of halt an hour Mr. Magee was triced up In the plaza and received Without wincing his lashes. Ho was carried off to the consulate In a falntluc condition. Then It wns that tho commandants reflected that, after all, ho had been perhaps a llttlo Indiscreet, and that un pleasant consequences might follow. Bo ho ordered tho wire to Guatemala City to ho cut, hoping by that means to gain tlmo before tho news reached tho cars of the Urltlsh minister. A nntlvo boy attached to tho consulnto nt San Joso mndo his way up tho Hue to Esculntla, half way to Guatemala City, nnd from there wired tho astonishing nows to the minister that his consul hnd received fifty lashes, Tho nrltlsh minister Im mediately sought out llnrrlos nnd de manded explanations nnd redress. Bar rios, secretly pleased with tho action of his subordinate, but also alarmed for the consequences,' endeavored by fair promises to temporize; but In n few days tho arrival of Urltlsh men-of-war at San Joso nnd the occupation of that place hurried a decision as to tho min ister's demands, Thcso were, that for the national Insult tho Urltlsh flag should bo saluted In Guatemala City, tho commnudauta handed over to tho admiral for punishment, and Mr. Mageo given $50,000 In gold for tho personal Injuries sustained. Seeing that tho demands we in about to be enforced by action, Itanlos acqui esced, tho flag was saluted, tho money paid, and tho commandaute, captured In flight, handed over to tho admiral. Considering that tho enmmnndanto would recelvo full punishment from Uarrlos, In tho hitter's chagrin nt tho loss of his $50,000, tho admiral returned tho over zealous nfliclnl to that Central American potentate. A gentleman who was present nt tho scone when the com mandnnto wns brought beforo llnrrlos thus described to tho writer tho meet ing: Handcuffed nnd In disgrace, the com innndanto was led Into tho presenco of Harriot, tho later holding In his hand a stout riding whip. "Pool," hurled forth Barrios. "Do you kuow what you have done? You havo actually beate.n a consul; but, my Godl of all mad things to do, you have beaten n Ilrlb Ish consul." Then, seizing tho trem bling cx-olllelal, he thrashed him tin mercifully about tho head, and ordered him to that close confinement which in Central America usually means i speedy release In death.

Most of them nro Importa tions, and the government permits them to cuter free of duty nn Insult to our own drivers! Unit! Hut they come here with n purpoo to "do" our Anglo maniacs. The head coachman receives from $00 to $""1, and his assistant, the fellow who Is sometimes called "tiger" and "Hunk," gets about $10. Tho hay may bo purchased of the most reputa ble firm In the world, but if 'Mr. Conch- man docs uot get his "dlvy," ho reports to his employer that the horses nro not doing well the hay Is not of good qual ity. If tho oat man on tho Produco Kxclmngo does uot put something In tho privy purse of Mr. Coachman tho horses have botts, or something equal ly as Impossiblethe oats are unsound.

Thcro Is nn alliance between tho British harness dealers In Now York and nil tho coachmen In tho city. Nothing can bo bought for a horso to wear unless through this dealer, who Is liberal In Ills "dlvy." I could mime a millionaire who paid Sl.'JOO for a set of harness that I could buy anywhere for half that price. His coachman got tho extra $000.
