Prince Bismarck is said to have
his youth, to have quit
dr inking his horrid favorite mixture
of champagne and porter, to have
gtitrid of most of his fat, ami to
skip like a young land'.
yj. Parnell’s litigcrion with the
Rondon Times is likely to take up a
long time; some say a year. It
(rill cost Mr. Parnell—probably notli
jng. He will have to pay some
$200,000; and this sum will be
rtised for him without doubt, most
ly in America. There is good reason
to believe that both the legal and the
fior&l result the of business will be
wholly in his favor and greatly to
the damage of the big ugly domi
neering Tory daily paper.
Mr. Cleveland shows no signs of
agony or even of discouragement at
jjia failure to be re-elected. Why
should be? He will have had his
full four years’ swing in the most
powerful position in all the civil
ized world—for the Presidont of the
United States as long as he is in
office has more power than even the
Czar of Russia. He has acquired a
lovely wife, has laid up some $75,000
or $lOO,OOO, and Mri» Cleveland is
* to be worth half a million, I

for a year or two. We think that is
exactly the card we would play if
we held his hand—and hers. A
word in your ear, Mr. Cleveland—
when you are in Germany, consult
Prince Bismarck about the means
to unfat yourseif. You will be a
great deal more comfortable, and
then Governor David B. Hill of 'lew
York can’t call you “a fat sphinx.”
Mrs Stanley, commonly called Big
Bertha, is still jailed in San Frau,
dsco. If fat is to count, she is a
greater personage even than Presi
dent Cleveland. Fat scamps are not
tommon, and Wilkie Collins’s won
derful fat villain Count Fosco, in
‘The 11 oman in White” was a very
original conceit. But this shrewd
female fat rascal proves that Mr,

The other two are people not nearly
so well known, but perhaps quite as
well worth knowing. The first is a
great traveller, Col. Prejevalsky,
who has made several expeditions
into the unexplored interior of Asia,
and has added much to geograph
ical knowledge—of ways in the in
terest of Russia. He has lately died
at Tashkend, a Russian Asiatic fron
tier ci tv. The other is a painter,
named Verestchagin, who has re
cently made himself a great though
rather horrid reputation in Europe,
by painting battle pi' * .res which
show things exactly a<. they are.

Another group of remat a-de per
sons disappeared some til. ago in
t he vast interior of Africa, vague re
ports have floated out from that im
mense unknown interior about them,
but they have disappeared from civ
ilization as utterly as the missionary
Livingstone died some fifteen or
twenty years ago, and whether they
will ever be heard of again none can
tell. One of these is Henry M. Stan
ley, who discovered Livingston. Last
November, a year ago, he was known
to be at a certain place inland from
the Congo State on the west coast;
and it is supposed he was goingto
join Emin Bey. The second is Emin
Bey himself, who is really a German
physician. He has been governing
au independent command from up
the Nile. He is nominally an officer
of the Khedive of Egyyt, but is pract*
iallythe monarch of a little kingdom
there. Stanley’s route to join him
would be the northeastly. Dim re
ports have come dow n the Nile of an
unknown “ White Pasha ” w ith sold*
iers somewhere in the far interior.
This may be—and may not. The 3d
of this group is the great Arab slave
trader Tippoo Tib, w'ho is practically
a king, Stanley was understood to be
expecting help from him; and those
who believe Stanley is killed, think
he has been treacherously killed by
this Arab law pirate. It would not
be strange if it were so.
Another Charity.
Lady Herbert, widow Of Lord Herbert,
who was Secretary of War in Great Brit
ain during the late unpleasantness in this
country, has come to the United States to
work among the colored people of the
South. She will erect a colored orphan
age in Baltimore. Lady Herbert is ex
tremely charitable, and has passed a num
ber of years in the West Indies doing good
to the negro. She is the mother of ten
children, the Earl of Pembroke being her
eldest son. Another son, the Honorable
Michael Herbert, an attache of the British
Legation at Washington, is to marrv Miss
Leila Wilson of Virginia in New York
city, November 27th.—Pittsburg Dis
Well; if this charitable lady gives
her little orphans a good education,
she will be w'orking in line with
Mr. Hand, whose Handsome gift is
mentioned in another place; and
with a noble company of other good
men and women who understand
the pleasure of helping the needy.
We wish Lady Herbert all success.
And especially we wish her, and
other benevolent friends of the
colored race, their best success.
This would be, like the best success
of every teacher, to place their pupils
a- soon as possible in a position to
do without any help at all. To
reach that stage of progress is the
first of all worthy ambitions.
Tue New Sheriff and his
New Broom
Two names have been mentioned for
the office of Under Sheriff, Martin Kell}
and J. Williamson. Neither one has any
chance of getting the place. Laumeister
is looking around for a suitable man and
has not vet found one. He has reforms
to carry out that will need a strong, nervy,
determined and able man as his first as
Under the present administration
“bribes tor deputy sheriffs’’ figure on
every law ver's books. That sort ot thing
will not be allowed when Laumeister
takes office, nor will he w nt fifty per cent
commission on official advertising. The
practice oi one keeper watching three pla
ces and charging e ich of them three days
time for every twentv-four hours, will be
stopped, and many other abuses are to be
done away w ith. There is going to be a
new deal in the Sheriff’s office.—Post.
We find the above very handsome
Hp»eciiueu of promising in the “Post’
of the 13th. As it is a promise
made by a Republican paper about
a Republican office-holder, we shal
be excused for preferring to wait
and see whether the performance
corresponds. A new broom sweeps
clean. The Sheriff’s place for the
two years’ term is considered to be
worth about $60,000 to the Sheriff
himself. All the swindles mentioned
in the above article, and more too,
need to be done away with. If Mr.
Laumeister will keep the promises
the “ Post” has been making for
him, he will be a very popular
Sheriff with lawyers and with liti»
gants. We shall watch his reform
with interest.
The Iron-Workers.
The different iron trades of San
Fi ai.cisco hitve learned that the
Risd pi Iron Works are giving out
f.t cts for machinery .in the East-;
ern States and in Europe. This the
iron-workers do not like, and they
].• o interviewed Mr. Moore, Sup
erintendent at the Risdon Iron
iVorks on the subject. Mr. Moore I
gave them a straight-forward busi
ness answer, to the effect that
the reason why the contracts
were going away from this
city was that the work could be
done cheaper, and he intimated that
the work must be done where it
could be done the cheapest.
The workingmen are naturally
not pleased with this answer, but it
is not stated that they attempted to
answer Mr. Moore’s facts about c<<
The Iron Molders’ Union have
however, adopted the following reso
Whereas, The Iron Molders’ Union
believers in all the home industries
that employ free white labor, to the
end that our laboring people may be
able to obtain work at remunerative
wages; and whereas, upon investiga
tion, we find that certain firms in
the iron trade in this city have re
cently sublet their contracts, either
in whole or in part, to European
manufacturers, while the work
could and should have been done
in our own workshops; therefore, be
Resolved, By Iron Molders’ Union,
No. 104, that on and after Wednes
day, November 24, 1888, we will
positively refuse to work for any
firm that sublets a contract for San
Francisco or California work to a
foreign or Eastern manufacturer if it
is clear that we can do the w ork in
our own shops.
Resolved, That, in a spirit of fair
ness to our employers this rule
shall not apply to any work already
ordered and not yet completed, but
we will strictly enforce it on all con
tracts made after the 14th instant.
We do not say that the Iron
Molders are wrong, we are for the
workingmen every time just as far
as they are right; and on the
principle of helping our neighbors
they are right in this case. But can
labor organizations succeed in a
general policy of insisting that work
shall be done in one way or in one
place, when it can be done cheaper
in another way or at another place?
We do not assume to decide this
question, or even (now) to answer it.
We only point out that it is a large
fundamental question which is going
to come up for decision a good many
