Gorman la the ablest General of them
Okk would hardly .have expected a
man of Senator Hoar's age and dispo
sition to play peek-a-boo with the pub
lic, but that's about what he has been,
doing of late.
The Force bill lacked the force nec
essary to make headway against the
stronger force of an Intelligent public
opinion which bad long ago condemn
ed the measure, and it went to the wall
as such odious things always should.
If Vice President Morton had the
key to the Force bill legislation, as the
country had been informed by the re
Iiublican press, he either must have
ost it or the lock must have been so
badly broken that it wouldn't work.
Anyway he didn't unlock it.
. Early in the present session of Con
gress, Senator Hoar stated that he
would rather see every manufacturing
establishment in New England In itch
es and the people reduced to 50 cent
day and an exclusive diet of cod-fisli,
than to see the Force bill fail to become
a law. Well, the Force bill has foiled
, to become a law. What does Mr. Hoar
think of it now?
The following description is giren of,
a counterfeit half dollar, whlchjis :iil
to have a big circulation in the coun
try: It is of the date 1887 and ha an
excellent ring. The coin is a little
thicker than the genuine and to the
keen eye both the goddess of liberty
and the eagle area little uneasy in their
positions. The engraving is good, and
it requires an expert to detect the bad
Look out for another swindle. This
time it is a canvasser pretending to be
securing dates for a soldier's history.
The questions asked are cheerfully au
swered by all and as correctly as possi
ble. After the Information has beer
written out, the unsuspecting informant
' is requested to sign it, being assured
that it is only wanted as authority for
publishing. After a few days those in
terviewed are furnished a $15 history,
and are surprised to And their signa
tures to a con tract agreeing to take the
The ignominious failure cf the Har
rison wing of the Republican party to
push the Force bill through Congress
and thus make the campaign of next
year t'ne old, old "bloody shirt" lines,
brings up the question of what wilt
form the Issues upon which that party
will make what will probably be its
next national campaign. It dares rot
make the tariff the issue, because Re
publicans are becoming more hopeless
ly divided upon that every day; on
finance there is even a worse division,
so that at this time it is hard to say
what the G. O. P. will do for an issue.
The liberal minded and progressive
wing of the Republican party, repre
sented in the Senate by those Senators
who possessed the moral courage to
vote against the radical and revolution
ary views, whlcn Mr. Harrison Has
adnnted as his own. of how the Repub
lican party might be indefinitely kept
in power by the intimidating use of the
Army in the south, will do much to
save their self respect and to avoid fu
ture abuse from the radicals of their
partv.bv leaving the party with which
they are no longer In accord, and with
which thev can never hope to be again
in harmony with. The Democratic
nartv stands for much that these men
believe in, and it stands ready to give.
them a "warm welcome to its ranKs.
Will they come?
The Democratic Senators are certain
ly deserving of the thanks of the coun
try for the able manner in which they
foiled every attempt of the Harrison
Republicans to pass the Force bill and
ila revolutionary fore-runnt r, the Aid-
rich gag rule. Only those upon the
eroiind know of the many personal
sacrifices made by the Democrats, in
order to be constantly on nana, pre'
nared to take advantage of every fav
nrAhle circumstance that might arise:
but these sacrifices are fully appreciat
ed, not only by the grateful constitu
ents of the Democratic Senators, but by
the country at large, which rejoices to
know that both gfe rule and Force bill
are shelved It is hoped never again to
be heard from.
. A California Vehicle.
-In early times there was not in Cali
fornia any vehicle except a rude Cali
fornia cart; the wheels were withoul
tires, and were made by felling
an oak tree and bowing it down till 11
inade a solid wheel nearly a foot thick
on the rim and a little larger where the
axle went through. The hole for th
axle would be eight or nine inches in
diameter, but a few years' use would In
crease it to a foot. To make the hole at
augur, gouge, or chisel was sometime)
- used, but the prliicipal tool was an ax.
A small tree required but little hewlnj
and shaping to answer for an axle.
These carts were always drawn by oxen,
the yoke being lathed with rawhide U
the horns. To lubricate the axle the
used soap (that is one thing the Mexi
cans could make), carrying along for thi
purpose a big pail of thick soapsuds,
which was constantly put In the box oi
hole; but you could generally tell whei
a California cart was coming half a mill
away by the squeaking.
The best , families in California wen;
long distances attherate of thirty milei
br more a day, visiting in one of thes
clumsy two-wheeled vehicles. They haij
a little frame-werk around it made o
round sticks, and a bullock hide was put
' In,. for a floor or bottom. Sometimes thi
better class would have a little calico f oj
curtains and cover. There was no sue!
thing as a spoked wheel in use then.
It Didn't Work.
An American opened an offico iu Parli
Ljy and advertised 40 watches for 75 cents,
J It wasn't over two hours after the firs
ad" appeared before he was walked ol
to jail. He evidently mistook Frano
. for an American suburb. Had he offeroi
a $75 watch for 1$ cents in this country I
would have boon all serene.
THE LEPER'S HUT.
Vrfcaro a rjr Hawaam Will An Xla
A Chinese leper crouches la a filthy
hovel, nnatUadrd and oa cared for, J tut
oaUtde the limits of Sacramento, CaL,
sayt a correspondent His abode Is la a
mM of willow and tangled underbrush
la an unfrequented spot along the Cen
tral Pacific Railroad. After a Rood deal
of dodging of old tree bent In every
direction by wind and the current of the
river that at tlmoa washes the levees, a
dismal, shaded spot Is reached almost
directly under the levees, Ilere, dttnlr
seen In the thick bramble, Is a hut or
hovel, or whatever one may choose to
call the gloomy habitation of the poor
outcast, as effectually hidden from the
world, almost, as If it had been blddon
in the fastnesses of an Impenetrable
wilderness. ' Waiting for death, the poor
follow crouches all day long In his mis
erable shelter, keeping shy of his few
visitors and looking with suspicion upon
everybody who approaches. The China
man speaks wall in pigeon English, and
told rather sadly that the Chinese doc
tors, like most of their civilized proto
types, are not In the habit of working
for their health. He Is sure that they
could cure him If he had 910 to pay them,
and then graphically Illustrated the
power of money. "Me catchee ten dolla
catchem heap well. No catchee money
China docta no likee mo. " As to Ameri
can doctors, he had very little confidence
in their ability to do him any good.
He said that the disease first appeared
under the right eye about a year ago. A
Chinese doctor advise 1 him to stop
drinking vinegar, and when ho followed
directions the sore healed and disap
peared. He scon forgot himself and re
sumed the use of vinegar, and the in
fection again broke out. '
THE TRAVELER'S TREE.
How It Quenched the Thirst or a Tired
A European traveler on his way from
the coast of Madagascar to the capital,
Tananarivo, In the interior, had emptied
his water flask and was suffering from
thirst. He asked one of the natives of
his party when he should be able to ob
"Any time you like, sir," said the
native with a smile.
The European saw no sign of springs
or water; but the natives conducted him
to a group of palm-like trees standing
In a cluster on the edge of the forest,
with straight trunks and biff bright
green leaves growing from the opposite
sides of the stalk, and making the treo
appear like a great fan. The white man
gazed admiringly at the tree.
You think it a fine tree, but I will
show you what It is good for," said the
He pierced the root of one of the leaf
stems at the point where it joined the
tree, whereupon a stream of -clear water
spurted out, which the European caught
in his water-can and found to be fresh,
cool and excellent to drink. After the
party had satisfied their thirst and taken
a supply, the native who had spoken
"This tree, which is good for us In
more ways than one, we call the travel
"But where docs the water come from
that the tree contains? Is it taken up
from the soil?" inquired the white man.
"Oh, no," said the native. "The
leaves drink In the rain that falls on
them, and when it has passed through
them it becomes very pure and. sweet"
A Mew National Parle.
Probably few people east of the Rocky
Mountains are aware that during au
tumn of the past year a now national
pleasure-ground, larger than the State ol
Rhode Island, was established in this
country. This spacious park Is in Cali
fornia, completely surrounding the Yo
semite valley grant of 1864, and about
thirty times as largo as that grant. It
takes in not only the entire water-shed
of the Merced River region, as defined
by the encircling mountain range which
Includes Toulumne Peak, Unicorn Peak,
and Cathedral Peak on the north and
northeast, Mount Lyell with its superb
glaciers on the east, and Buena Vista
Peak on the south; but it embraces, also,
the noble Hetchy Hetchy valley, itself
a second Yosemite, and the magnificent
Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne, with its
massive walls and domes, and its cas
cades unequalled In volume of water by
those of any other canyon in the Sierra.
It crosses the Tuolumne meadows and
annexes the splendid range that contains
Mount Dana and Mount Gibbs and the
Mono Pass. It has saved from the lum
berman and the saw-mill the Mono Pass,
the Merced and Tuolumne groves of bltf
trees, and has secured Lake Eleanor. In
short, it has brought within Its protect
ing area all that needs to be reserved Iir
that region of nature s marvels. It!
area Is from 40 to 45 miles ea'st and west
and about 37 miles north and south
THE PORTER IN HIS PALACE.
No King Ever Ruled with a Tyranny More
, Unrelenting and Severe.
A gentleman who was traveling on a

in ine morning, says the Boston Courier.

wake him at the proper time, and went
to sleep. About midnight the porter
came ana aroused him.
"Excuse me. sah." the porter said.
"but I forgot whare you's goin' to get
The passenger, not much pleased at
tbls Interruption, repeated his direc
tlons, and then again addressed himself
to sleep. He slept until a few minutes
of the arrival of the train at the point
wnere ne was to stop, when he fortu
nately awoke. Looking at his watch, he
discovered that he had barely time to get
aressea, ana be scrambled Into , his
clothes with a celerity that saved him
from missing his station, all tho time
saying to himself things concerning the
porter wnicn were by no means compli
mentary to teat individual.
As the train drew in the station, where
It made a stop of only a moment, the
gentleman hurried out of tho car, and
as he did so passed the portor, sound
asleep on a seat in the smoking-room.
With a poke of his valise the passenger
"I say," he demanded, "why didn't you
call me as I told you to? I came very
near sleeping over,"
The porter drew himself up with a
sleepy dignity, suppressing a yawn and
rubbing his eyes open. '
"On dls car," he returned, with the air
of one who had been greatly insulted,
"dar ain't nono of the passengers 'lowed
to wake up the porter, an' you'll have to
wait till this individual wakes up of
himsel', before - you can get any such
question answered." -.
With perfect coolness he laid himself
down again, and the passenger 'hurried
put ol. the car without waiting to con
tinue the conversation.

slew raw IMsn Oe Wealth? ia the
The poMlblllty of poor bors becoming
rich In the United State is an oft-told
tale. It receive Ulustreuontn toe career
of the Cudahy brother la Chicago
Michael, Patrick, Edward and John.
They came to this country from Ireland
twonty year ago, and found employ
ment at day laborer in Plankinton St
Armour' packing establishment In Mil
waukee. They wore bright, iodtutriou
and resource uL Step by step they were
slvanced to auperior positions. They
oemed to have an Intuitive knowledge
of everything pertaining to the packing
business, were quick to absorb details,
i id were constantly Introducing Im
provements that increased the return
of their employers. In 1873 Michael
Cudahy was made superintendent of
Armour' plant, and a year later he be
came Armour partner. As a practical
butcher and packer his experience and
Judgment were valuable to the new firm,
lie knew how to buy and how to run a
packing-house. For sixteen year he
has had complete control of the busl
ness at the Stock Yards, and during that
entire period he was rarely ever missed
being at his post early in tho morning,
remaining until late In the evening.
To-day these yards are the largest and
most complete of any In the world.
Michael now withdraws from the firm to
.take charge of the Omaha stock yards.
He Is worth $0,000,000. His brother
John and Pat have made (3,000,000
apiece In the business, and his brother
Ea, worth 32,000,000, has been receiving
a salary of $25,000 and a share of the
profits as superintendent ot "Armour's
Had Eggs in His Shoes.
Congressman-elect Lock wood was an
orator long before his rhetorio helped to
carry Grover Cleveland aloft. Away
back in his school days at Hamburg he
was an orator of such note that he was
chosen valedictorian of his class.. He
prepared the event by ordering a new
pair of shoes. Late in the afternoon
of the great day the shoes camo. But,
good heavensl they wouldn't go on. Dan
hadn't another pair fit for U9e. He
summoned the shoemaker to a confer
ence, and, while the perspiration rolled
off his face, he explained the situation.
"That's nothing," said Crispin; "get a
couple of eggs and break one into each
Dan did so and the result was charm
ing. He went into those shoos like a
duck's foot in the mud. His valedictory
was the greatest effort of Lockwood's
career up to that date. The words were
honeyed and the gestures as graceful as
a snake swallowing a frog. All his
friends and relatives were spellbound.
But right in the midst of it the author
stopped. Agony was Incarnate in his
features. His hair rose on end. Ho be
came pale and red in turns.
What was tho matter? Had he for
gotten his speech? No, he had just
thought of those two egg omelets, and
would have given all he had or ever
( hoped to have for a chance to laugh.
