STATE DIVISION. States Which Have Been Dismembered. A Nnmbei- of Examples in the Past. The National Constitution Provides for Such Measures. Maine, Uawaennsetta and Georgia H»?« Keen Cat Up—How New Statea Were Made. (BT B. A. CECIL STEPHENS —ARTICLE XH). • The state of Georgia was divided in 1802, agreeably to the clause in the national constitution for the "dismem bering of large states." The charter ol Georgia was granted by King George II on June 9,1732. See Am. Cyc.) The grant included the territory of tbe pres ent state of Georgia from the Savannah river to the Altamaba river. The United States, nearly ten years after tbe ratification of the federal constitution, with its state-dismembering clause, ac- knowledged the jurisdiction of Georgia when the territory of Mississippi was formed by the act of April 7, 1793, "sub ject to the claims of Georgia." The state of Georgia, by act of April 24, 1802. consented to the eepara tion of tbe territory of the Mis sissippi as proposed by congress, and in turn annexed that part of Soutli Carolina, which the latter state had ceded to the general government in 1787. The territory divided from Geor gia embraced an area of about 100,000 square miles. One of the finest instances of state division is that of Massachusetts. This occurred in 1820, and the segre gated portion became the "state of Maine." The Plymouth company was grated a patent on November 8, 1620, by King James I, for all lands between the 40th and 48th parallels of north latitudf and from sea to sea. The colony of Mapsachussetts bay was formed by rove I charter on March 4, 1629. In 1652 Maine waa incorporated with Ma.>sa cbuesetts. Massachusetts ratified the national constitution, with its state-dis membering clause, on February 6, 1788. Says the American Encyclopedia: "In 1820 a convention to revise the constitution (of Massachusetts) proposed various amendments, nine oi wLuci were ratified by the popular vote. Ii the same year the district of Maine was separated irom Massachusetts, with the consent of the latter, and erected into a state. . . . The final separation of Maine from Massachusetts took place March 15,1820, when she was admitted into the union as an independent Btate." This was a most remarkable instance of state division. For 163 yeara Maine bad been a "district of Massachusetts." Massachusetts was a "large state," and could afford to be "dismembered," as the national constitution permits. Before this division the total area of th" state of Massachusetts waa about 42,800 square milea, and the popula tion was 821,622. The acta of were taken in exactly legal lines. First, the legislature of Massa cbusetts gave her conßent to the di vision of the state by act of June 19,1819. Second, the people of the "district ol Maine" adopted a constitution for their proposed new state on October 29, 1819. and applied on December 8, 1819, to congress for an pnahlini? act. Third, congress gave its consent by act of March 3. 1820. Fonrth, the proclama tion of President Monroe on March 15, 1820. was the final act which created the "state" of Maine" and admitted it into the union of states. This is the reason why emphasis is always laid on the word "state when speaking of Maine, becauee it had been merely a district of Massachusetts for so many years and its people were so elated over their political independence. Note the order of events: 1. The legislature of Massachusetts crnsented to the division. 2. Maine framed a constitution. 3. Congress consented. 4. The president admitted. Notice how closely the letter and how fully the spirit of the national constitu tion was followed. After the division Massachusetts had an area of 7800 square milea ahd Maine had about 35,000 square miles. At the time of the division, Massachusetts proper had a population of 523,287, and Maine had 298,335. Massachusetts lost 36 per cent of her population, and 81.77 per cent of her area by the division. In 1820 Maine had 57 per cent of as much population as Massachusetts, and 548 per cent more area. In 1880, Maine has 36 per cent of as much popu lation as Massachusetts, while the population of the latter state had in creased 337 per cent from 1820 to 1880. During the tame period the population of Maine increased 217 per cent. In 1885 Maine had a total assessment of $208,709,381. The Bame year the assess ment of Massachusetts was $1,765,879, --778. So it did not hurt these two states to set np housekeeping by themselves. Texas came into the union with the distinct understanding that subsequently she might be divided into four more states. She had been a state of the Mexican republic, and had been colon ized by Americans, who in 1835 de i clared their independence and eecured it by force of arms. Mr. Cooley says on page 174 of hie book entitled Principles of Constitutional Law: "There is a provision in the joint res olution for the annexation of Texas for tbe formation of four other states from its territory, with the consent of the state, but no action to that end was ever taken." That any legal or constitutional ob stacles to such a provision for state divi sion were ever known is shown by the same author again on page 170 of his work: "The debates which took place in con gress, while the subject of the annexa tion of Texas was under discussion, arid the contemporaneous political discus sions elsewhere, give the opposing views on this subject. Most of the "discus sions, however, involved policy rather than constitutional power." The joint resolution of congress for the annexation of Texas, approved March 5, 1845, contains the following condition and guarantee: "New states of convenient size, not exceeding four in number, in addition to the eaid state of Texas, nnd having sufficient population may ' hereafter, by the consent of Baid state be formed out of the territory there, which shall be entitled to admis sion under the provisions of the federal THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 24, 1892. constitution, and such etates as may b* formed out of that portion of said terri tory lying south of 36 degrees 30 mm utes, north latitude, commonly known as the Mi«souri compromise line, shah be admitted to tbe union, with or with out slavery, as the people of each stan asking admission may desire; and in such state or stales as shall be formed out of eaid territory north of eaid Mis souri compromise line, slavery or in voluntary service (except for crime) shall be prohibited." See Congressional Globe, page 436. In chronological order, the division of tbe state of California, in 1859. here ap pears, which has been fully related in article 8 of this series. The next article will give a complete history of that most notorious of all state divisions, namely, West Virginia, together with an abstract of the decis ion of the supreme court of the United States upon that question. [TO BE CONTINUED.] Marco liozzarta. Soon after Fitz-Greene Halleck had published his stirring "Marco Bozzaris," he repeated the poem to a lady, an inti mate friend of his. She expressed great admiration of the beautiful lines, but when he was in full enjoyment of what he considered her perfect appreciation she surprised him by the innocent query: "Who was Marco Bozzaris?" "Well," said Mr. Halleck, despondent ly, "what's the use of becoming martyrs for liberty or of poets celebrating heroes if ladies won't even inform themselves about the events of the day?" The remembrance of another incident connected with the poem never failed to elicit a groan from its author. At a certain dinner party at which ho was present, it was expected that each man should sing a song or make a speech. Among the guests was a Dutch Jew, whose English was execrable, and he had been previously persuaded by a joker to commit tho whole of Marco Bozzaris to memory that he might recite it for the gratification of the poet and the poet's friends. The day caino and the Dutchman was called upon to speak. "Shentlemans," said he rising, "I can neither make de speech nor sing desong. but 1 vill deliver yon grand poem." This he proceeded relentlessly to do, and Halleck, when he heard his harmo nious measures delivered in a mixture of English and Dutch, was divided be tween the temptation to laugh and cry. —Youth's Companion. » He Reckoned He Would Kirn. One of the most interesting characters in American history is General Zachary Taylor, "Old Rough and Ready,"heroof Buena Vista, father-in-law of Jefferson Davis and twelfth president of the United States. We all recollect how Daniel Webster sneered at him, before he was nominated, as a "backwoods colonel," and refused to let his friends put him on the ticket for vice president with Taylor for first place, thereby missing his last and, as the sequel showed, best chance of becoming president. Millard Fill more, of New York, took the despised second place and thereby had nearly three years in the White House. General Sherman used to tell an amus ing little story of Taylor anent his nomi nation for the presidency. At that time General Taylor was stationed at New Or leans. He was a Kentuckian and the Kentuckians were very properly proud of him. One day shortly before the conven tion met at Baltimore he was approached at New Orleans by an old Kentucky friend, who said: "General, we want you to run for presi dent." "Who wants me to run?" asked Gener al Taylor seriously. "Why, we do—all your old neigh bors." "Well, then, if that's the case," replied the old hero, without changing the ex pression of his face, "I reckon I'll have to run."—Detroit Free Press. Finding His Bride. In one part of the Canton of Ticiuo a very quaint marriage ceremony prevails. The bridegroom dresses in his "Sunday best," and accompanied by as many friends and relatives as he can muster for the fete goes to claim his bride. Finding the door locked he demands admittance; tho inmates ask him his business, and in reply he solicits the hand of his chosen maiden. If his answer be deemed satisfactory he is successively introduced to a num ber of matrons and maids, some perhaps deformed and others old and ugly. Then he is presented to some large dolls, all of which he rejects with scorn, amid general merriment. The bewildered bridegroom, whose impetuosity and temper are now sorely tried, is then in formed that his lady love is absent and invited in to see for himself. Ho rushes into the house and searches from room to room until he finds her in her bridal dress, ready to go to church. Then are his troubles "over and his state as a benedict assured.—Swiss Republic. Trying to Buy Back Hia Own Body. This queer story comes from Massa chusetts: A man who lives in a suburb of Lowell is seeking to have a deed given by him twenty years ago recovered. The deed conveyed his body to a surgeon now practicing in Great Falls, N. H., for the sum of ten dollars and other considera tions, possession to be taken on his death. Since tho deed was made the giver has made a fortune iv South America'and has decided that he would like a Chris tian burial. The deed provides that the body shall be dissected and the skeleton articulated and presented to a medical university. The lawyers have decided that the deed holds good and that the only alternative is to buy off the doctor. The giver of the deed has made a big offer, but it has been refused.—Hartford Oourant.

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla. ALMOST BURIED IN CINDERS. Be Wen tbe Bet. Got fearfully Dirty, but Didn't Get the Money After AIL He stood in the Grand Central station fanning himself with his hat, and the cinders on his bald head looked like pep per on a nard boiled egg. Every square inch of his short fat person was begrimed and dirty. " *S'pose I look like a Digger Indian just dug," he remarked, putting his head into the window at the bureau of infor mation, and letting his imitation leather valise drop on the floor with a thud. "Oh, well a little jagged, perhaps," re sponded the clerk politely. "No jag around me," said the dirty tourist indignantly. "I only got in ten minutes ago." "SoT "Yes. Haven't washed senco we left Council Bl'iffs. Would you believe it?" "Oh, yes." "We had a gay time, I tell yer." "How's that?'' inquired the clerk. "Well, you see, a feller from South Dakota opened the winder just in front of me a while after we had started and the cinders come in like it was a hail storm. I didn't want to 'pear disobligin, so I stood it fer three hours, and then I leaned over to the South Dakota feller, and says I, -Little dusty, ain't it?* 'Meb be,' says he. -Would you mind shuttin down that winder fer a spell?" says I, as perlite as you please. 'I find it very annoyin.' "I would mind,' says he, 'and if I can stand it, TU bet you can.' 'Well, if it's a bet, you say,' says I, 'I'm in it. I don't let no South Dakota feller bluff me. I'll bet you fifty dollars, even money, you'll weaken on that open win der before 1 do.' "He looked surprised, but he aays, 'It's ago.' "We put up the money with the con ductor, and he snuggled up to his winder and I behind, takin the dust sorter sec ond hand. At tho end of the first twenty four hours we wasn't purty fer a cent, and I seed the other feller was squirmin a good deal. So when the train stopped fer dinner 1 sneaked out to the engineer and gave him my last ten dollar bill, and says I winkin, 'When you start np the engine it'll be a pcrtickler favor to me if you won't screen back them cinders; let 'em flicker for two or three hours; just buzz out every cinder you've got.' " 'My coal,' says he, a wiukin back, 4i terrible soft and muddy today.' "Well, sir, the next three hours was awful. I never seed such smoke aud coal dust anywhere. Tho way that en gine snorted and blowed and them cin ders rattled and pat tered most scared the passengers off the train. It actually seemed as though the screen business had busted clean out of the smokestack and let the coal blow through in chunks. The dirt was so thick on my face you could have wrote my name in it, but that feller from South Dakota he caught them cinders right in the neck. He was almost buried. There was cinders in his hair, cinders in his mustache; they worked down inside his collar; into his vest pockets. And when he started to brace up on a chew blamed if he didn't bite more cinders than tobacker. About then it came up to rain, and for an hour that feller from South Dakota locked like he was dredged up from a mud pond. When the rain stopped and he was wipin down the mud, along come a red hot cinder as big as a pea and lit on his beard. The brakeman helped him put out the fire, but just then the train stopped and that feller riz up and says he, "I weaken, take the cash,' and he walked right off the train. Then all the passengers congratulated me. They said I was dirty, but game." "So you got the money?" inquired the clerk with some interest. "Well that's the trouble," rejoined the dirty traveler. "While I was fixin the engineer blamed if that onery cnss wasn't goin me one better and fixin the conductor, and they froze to the cash and skipped together. The trouble with me is," added the grimy traveler, gazing out pensively at the Forty-second street hackmen, "that I'm too honorable and eonfidiu, always been so. Say," lie added in a whisper, poking his dirty head in the window, "gimme a qnarter fer a wash, will ye#?"—New York Tribune. Caught. At a certain station lun<o quantities of plums and apples were br ing reported as missing almost daily in the large hampers and baskets that were sent to London. Circumstances pointed to the probability of the pilfering taking place at the sending station. The agent hit upon a novel plan for detecting the thief. He had a lad porter placed in one of these hampers returning empty, which was large enough to hold him, covered the top with canvas and labeled it "Plums—Perishable," with the address in full. Toward midnight the lad got cramped and felt anxious to get out, but he stuck manfully to his post. By and by one of tho night shunters came into the shed to examine the wagons labeled for the next train. He groped about the packages, and cut a bole in the canvas of the ham per where the lad was concealed and felt for the plums. He was terrified, however, to find his hand firmly gripped, and almost fainted with fright when the porter revealed himself and recognized him, with a large basket full of fruit by his side. The shunter was in a couple of days dis missed and the porter received promo tion.—London Tit-Bits. Fine Question. The Germans are a very philosophical and somewhat argumentative race. Two workmen in the great Krupp cannon manufactory were overheard discussing an important question. "In your opinion, Johann," said one, "which is the more important part of a cannon—the hole or the steel?" "The hole of course, Heinrich," said the other. "Because what use in the world would a cannon be without any hole in it?" "Yon are wrong, Johann. It's the steel that's more important; for how many men could you kill with a hole witb nothing around it?"— Youth's Companion. A* Staple aa Coffee.
