Pabis, June 18.—It is the fashion for journal
ists to treat their readers every now and then to
along rigmarole on the fondness of the French
people for fetes and fireworks. Between our
selves, though there is undeniably a founda
tion of sense in this, there is raised upon it the
most magnificent structure of nonsense. We
certainly enjoy a festival when it comes in tbe
natural course of things, as much as, or more
than, other people; but 1 cannot see any reason
for supposing, as the papers would make one
suppose, that there is a periodical clamor and
complaint amongst us about the rarity of those
spectacular displays which went so far to assure
the transient popularity of the Empire and the
misfortunes of the French nation. Perhaps tbe
only persons really exercised about tbe matter
are—the gentlemen of the press.themselves.
At all events, it is curious that all these
suggestions of merry-making, and riot
come from the journalists. The working
classes don’t grumble about such things, and, I
am convinced, would prefer to have the cost of
* all public rejoicings added to their wages. How
ever, as I said, it is tbe fashion to agitate for
more greasy pole* and Catherine-wheels every
now* and then; so there is no cause to be spe
cially astonished at Emile de Girardin’s last
44 idea.”
HE WARTS US TO ILLUMINATE
Elbe night the Chambers return to Paris.
To wbat a pass mnst Paris have come when it
can find no better pretext for illuminating than
the return of about 800 rowdy or incapable leg
islators to the Palais Bourbon! Upon mj
word, there is something sublimely ridiculous
in the thought, after the scenes that hare just
been disgracing the Chambers at Versailles.
And, of course, as it is so sublimely ridiculous,
it will be caught at directly. On the Saturday
we shall be all Venetian lantern and bunting;
but on the Sunday it will be all Gallic lampoon
mul bantering again.
The return to Paris is not quite, decided. A
Congress, formed of the united Chamber and Sen
ate, has been called for to-morrow to give the final
vote on the subject; but we know beforehand,
what the result will be. The Right or Con
servative and Reactionary side of tfie two Houses
is opposed to the recapitalization of Paris. The
whole Republican party, with the exception of
part of the Left Centre, is favorable to it. M.
dc Laboulaye, whose American sympathies are
so notorious that he has been satirically dubbed
the “American Senator,” is the chief op
ponent to the scheme; which will certainly
be adopted in spite of M.’de Labonlave, who—
good, sensible gentleman—does not seem par
ticularly concerned about his prospective dis
comfiture. He comes in to the Cafe Voltaire every
day with the same unruffled brow and Quaker
ish calm, sips hia coffee peacefully as he reads
the violent attacks made upon him by the Radi
cal press, smokes a pleasant pipe with remarka
ble cheerfulness, and goes off to Versailles re
freshed.
It really appears to me that
IT IS THE DEPUTIES AND SENATORS ,
who should illuminate, not we Parisians. They
will be spared all those dreary journeys to and
from Versailles, all the scorching heat in sum
mer. and all the bitter frost in winter, that they
have had to endure since 1871. Truth to tell
it was time they did return. Since they slipped
awav from popular control they have done
hardly anything but talk, and fight, and blaster.
To what social measure likely to benefit the na
tion can they point as an outcome of their eight
rears’ labors? I cannot see any. Political
squabbles and hatreds have overshadowed the
practical business of the countiy, and honorable
Deputies have earned their 25 francs a day
by hurling insults and recrimination at each
other’s heads. Six months were wasted in 1877
in attempting to undo all that the Republicans
had done in the six years previous, and since
1877 the Republicans have been chiefly busied
with invalidating their enemies and undoing all
the mischief done by MM. de Broglie and Buf
fet. Even the budgets are become infinitely
less important and interesting than a personal
row about the election of M. Blanqui or the
prosecution of M. Paul de Cassagnac. All this
will be nearly impossible once the Chambers get
back to the’ Palais Bourbon. Paris will not
stand that sort of trifling; and, if it find thatM.
de Cassagnac monopolizes the attention of the
Chamber to the detriment of the public interest
it is more than probable M. de Cassagnac may
one day find himself ’
SWIMMING UNDER TEE PONT EE LA. CONCORDE,
while the Chamber settles its account with a
hundred thousand czasneratcd insurgents. The
wonder is, that Paul has not Deen jumped upon
long ago. Parnell, Biggar, and the rest of the
Irish obstructionists are very annoying to the
British House of Commons; but they are
more bores than bullies. Paul is a
bully, purely and simply. That he should have
been submitted to tamely so long, speaks vol
umes for the forbearance or the timidity of the
Versailles Chamber. But the otherday he went
a little too far for the patience ot even Ihatlong
suffering body. A vote of censure with tempo
rary exclusion was proposed and carried, and
Paul bad to slink out to save himself from forci
ble ejection. I will not weary you with a long
account of the almost incredible scene which
preceded this tardy act. of retribution, but at
the same time I think you should really hear
something about it, for it will show what base
and absunl purposes innocent and liberal Par
liamentary institutions may be made to serve
by unscrupulous fools or rowdies.
The nominal cause of the hubbub was the
discussion of what is known as
TEE PEBBY EDUCATIONAL BILL.
This bill is to a great extent aimed at the
Jesuits. It tends to substitute State and secu
lar education for the ecclesiastical teaching at
present so general—and, I may add (judging
from a comparison of the resultsobtaincd Dy the
lav and Jesuit schools at the public examinations),
efficient. The priests and their political allies,
the Bonapartists and Legitimists, have for some
months past been moving Heaven and Earth to
get signatures to monster petitions against the
bill, which is—os the name indicates—due to the
initiative of M. Jules Ferry, the Minister of
Public Instruction and Fine Arts.
Singularly enough, the Urst Deputy who as
cended the tribune to open the debate on Ibis'
most vital question, last Monday, was M. Paul
de Cassagnac. It was known beforehand that
the sneaker would be severe, and even violent.
In bis.opoosition to,the proposed measure; but,
though we still remembered the ninety-nine (!)
interruptions ol the voung swashbuckler in the
debate on the dissolution of the Chamber in
IST7, and though only a week or two ago we had
had to thank him for a. disgraceful “scene,” no
one was prepared for the audacious impudence
of Us bearing and speech.
His verv first words were a deliberate insult
to M. i’erry, whom he accused of vio
lence and hatred, and, a minute after,
of forgery and falsehood. M. Gambetta’s
calls to order had little effect, for he went on
to insult another member of the Ministry, M.
Glrerd. “A Chamber which counts a Girerd In
the number of its Ministers,” said the speaker,
“has
SO RIGHT TO BEST THE CHARGE OF FORGERY,”
—an allusion to the notorious document impli
cating the Bonapartists, which M. Glrerd dis
covered in a railway-carriage and made public.
The commotion excited bv this insolence is
hardly describable.- French "Deputies, in their
quiet'moments, always seem to Anglo-Saxons
to be quarreling; but, when they do quarrel,
they become irantlc maniacs. As nsnal in such
moments, a general rush towards the tribune
followed. The Eepnblicans shouted defiance at
the speaker; and his Bonapartist friends, who
were numerically weak, shouted londer.to make
up for it. The members of the Government,
who sit in the front row of seats, facing the
rostrum and -the President of the Cham
ber (M. Gambetta), were personally in
sulted and threatened. M. d’Arisle, an
obscure Reactionary memoer, called M,
Tlrard, the Minister of Commerce, a coward.
M. Tlrard, upon that losing his self-control,
jumped up furiously, and retorted with a re
gret that he bad not a stout stick
TO BEATD’ARISTE WITH!
An honorable member seized another honorable
member bv his coat-collar, and was proceeding
to shake him; and the whole wretched hurly
buriv—which was witnessed and enjoyed by.
about 500 spectators, including; many loyeigu
ers—only ended when M. Gambetta, putting on :
his bat,- suspended the “sitting.”
. In the interval between the.** suspension and,
the resumption of business, the most shameful
disorder prevailed in the lobbies and committee
rooms. Thirty, or forty Bonapartists—with M.
Rouhcr amongst them—took possession of a
room sacred to the Budget Committee, and re
fused to quit, until M.de Maby, the Questeur,gave
orders to have the soldiers called in' Seeing to
what a pass things had come, M. Gambetta tele
graphed to the Prefect, of Police for. an addi
tional force to be sent down; and the
body of gendarmes which is always
stationed at Versailles to defend the
Chambers was got under arms, and stood ready
to execute any orders. Eight of them, under
the command of old Col. Riou, were specially
told off for collaring any Deputy whom it might
be found necessary to eject; and, when these
abnormal preparations hod been made, the sit
ting was resumed. ■ M. de Cassagnae was sum
moned to explain bis insolent remarks and re
tract.
HB RETRACTED EVERYTHING,
hoping that by so doing he might be allowed
another chance of making a scene; but for once
his affected humility did not avail him. The
Republicans were too disgusted and enraged at
the license and impertinence of the bully, and
M. Gambetta proposed that he should he sen
tenced, as the rules of the House provided In
such case, to “censure with three days* exclu
sion.” The proposal was voted by acclamation,
and in five minutes more Paul, after a show of
bravado, sneaked out of the House. Before he
went, he hurled one more piece of
Billingsgate at the Government, however.
“Tiie Government is Infamous,” he shouted.
41 You have committed an offense against the
common law in saying so, and will be prosecut
ed !” replied M. Gambetta. It seems, however,
that he was mistaken In this, and that Paul is
in no danger of having to suffer for his last ag
gravated act of insolence. A carious state of
affairs altogether, is it not?
The recollection of the fete at the Ooera still
lingers in our minds. .The Jfigaro this morning
reverts to the fascinating theme in an interest
ing article devotedto a
MAGSITICENT HUNGARIAN MARCH,
described in the programme of the concert the
other night as the “ Marche de Szabady.” Jales
Massenet arranged the music for orchestra, but
he was not the author of the stirring theme on
which the composition—which made a sensation
at the concert —was built. The composer is a
very humble person called Szabady, who keeps
a beer-shop in Pestb, and who would possibly
never have been heard of outside his native
town bad not Massenet, and Arraand Gouzcin,
the critic, called on him one morning.
Every one knows what a marvel that other
Hungarian march, the. “Rackocsky,” became in
the bauds of Hector Berlioz. The “Szabady” is
likely to rival it in popularity.
TUB LATEST AT THE THEATRES
is the farce of M. Dura and Chivot, u Les Loca
taircs.de M. Blondcau,” which was produced
the other night with great f uccess at the Palais
Royal. Labiche’s “Petite Oiseaux” has been
revived at the Vaudeville; and the Porte St.
Marimbas remounted tliat old .sensational fa
vorite, “Les Mysteres de Paris.” Onditthat
we may have an uncommon novelty at the Thea
tre du Chateau d’ Ran soou, in the shape of a
Biblical drama, entitled “Israel,” from the
pens of MM. Leon and Franz Beauvallct, with
Mile. Rousseil in the leading role; and rumor
also is busy with a projected European tour of
Mile. Sarah Bernhardt next year. I do* not be
lieve there is as yet serious reason for at
taching any importance to this latter bit
of gossip, however.
New books are rare books just now; but we
are shortly.to have the “Memoirs of Count
Walewski,”it seems, edited bv his son; and
“ The Confessions of Mile, de la Vallierc ” are
on the book-stalls to-day. *
I may as well wind up with
A BATHER PORKY THING
I saw in the Voltaire yesterday.
A little boy is addressed by his mother, who
is in an “ interesting ” situation:
“ How would you like another little brother,
my dear?”
Young Hopeful reflects for some moments,
and replies:
“ Well, mother, you see I’ve got a brother
already. If it’s the same to you, couldn’t you
let me have a horae!” Harry - Meltzeb.
CURRENT GOSSIP.
THE OUEGEirD OF ZI3IHI.
JiurdeUf.
Zimri, the beautiful, excellent of earth.
Journeyed across the desert, and his soul
Fainted within him. Weary and sore of foot
He toiled to reach the isle of waving palms
That marked the fair oasis’ grateful rest,
And his sinking heart grew stronger than the leop
ard’s paw
When ’neath his feet he felt the springing turf.
Bpside the palm-crowned well he knelt and drank,
And, praying Allah'for bis gracious aid,
Sate down upon a gum-wood stump to rest.
. , . . Then he arose.
A sad, sweet smile, such as he wears who dreams
Ecstatic visions. From bis parted lips
There fell the A long, long wail.
Like a steam-whistle with the mouthpiece cracked
And all the joints wide open.
The Beddoee girls,
That beard his fearful wail, startled, uprose
And scooted for tall timber. Frightened birds
Added their clamor to the dolorous noise,
And all the Desert by the racket knew
Zimri the beautiful had sot npon a wasp—
One of the stccl-blae kind.
SELLING A MINE ON WALL STREET.
Virginia (A«p.) Chronicle.
Not many mouths ago a man pretty well
known on the Comstock went East to sella
mine lying in the Pyramid district. He had a
map of the claim and its underground workings
all done up nicely in pink and bine ink, and it
was os fine a piece of draughting os one would
wish to see. He took his maps, traps, and sam
ples of ore to New York and began to “ lay ”
for a customer.
Presently he fell In witha wealthy Wall street
manipulator who got him on a string and wanted
to get him a customer on commission. “ Now
look here, old man,” said the Wall-strcetcr,
“ yon are from Nevada and probably a little
green in the ways of the street. Yon will meet
some awful sharp men here and yon must man
age to be a trifle sharper or yon can’t do any
thing. Let me manage this thing and give me
au 1 can get over ten thousand for the mine.”
The Nevadan agreed, and the New Yorker
took him into a room and began to give him
some confidential advice.
“Now, here’s the way to manage this thing.
Of course, if yon have a really good mine it
won’t be at all out of the way to make it look
big. Now, take this mapj—it is a good map,
but it ain’t big enough. We must show’ up
some more ore. I’ll get an artist to put in some
extra ore-bodies, —just scatter ’em through the
mine like plums in a pudding,—and that’ll half
sell it. The buyers will be sure to discover
these ore-bodies afterwards, all the same.”
“This don’t look to me to be hardly square,”
said the Nevadan, with a deep religious expres
sion. “I want to sell my mine oh its merits. _
I never sold a thing in my life on false represen
tations, and I’m too old to begin now.”
“Now, don’t get riled, old fellow. Yon are
not supposed to know what I do. Give me the
maps and the ore, and let me attend to the bus
iness. Yon can’t be too tricky when yon sell a
mine.”
After considerable persuasion the mine-owner
turned over bis maps and ore-samples to the
Wall-streeter, and that astute operator went on
his way. His first step was to get an assay of
the samples, and they showed up $1,300 to the
ton. This set the New York chap thinking, and
be went back to his Nevada friend and asked
him bow high the samples wonldrnnto the ton.
“Well, I hardly want to say,” replied the
Nevada innocent. “I guess them samples
you’ve got now are good for $35 to S4O a ton.
Of course 1 just took an average from different
parts of the mine. I don’t believe in picked
samples. Snch frauds are bound to come out
sooner or later, and as I’ve got more mines to
. sell I concluded to act pretty square and get a
good reputation for business on the street.”
The New-Yorker drew his conclusions and
thought it would be a sharp thing to take that
mine in himself.
“I’ve found a customer, old fellow,” be said,
and eagerly drew a check for SIO,OOO, professing
to have found a customer and made a neat turn
on commission. “ Bring along . some more
mines and let me sell ’em for yon,” he added.
“You see I have facilities which you have not.
We’ll go round and fix up the deeds.”
The Nevadan took the check, folded it up, and
remarked:
“Now, I hope you’ve sold that mine. on the
square and not got too much for it.. It is worth
$14,000 as afair speculation.”
The two men parted for good a cougjc of days
afterwards and the New-Yorker came out last
week with sodfe experts to visit the rich prop
erty he has so shrewdly acquired Arriving at
Pyramid he asked for the Gold Bun Consoli
dated.
“No such a mine,” was the reply he got every
where.
“ Great Caesar 1 I’ve bought the claim and paid
SIO,OOO for it.” :
“Got hit," sure.” 1
“ A man showed me a map. Here it is,” and
the New-Yorker pulled out the map which he
had received from the seller. A crowd of
THE’CHICAGO TRIBUNE:• SUNDAY. JULY 1879—SIXTEEN PAGES
Pyramidcrs gathered round and laughed up
roariously.
. “ That’s Old Sawvcr’s work. Oh, he’s a smart
one.”
Just then Old Sawyer, the foremost citizen of
the district, and as innocent an old mine owner
as the coast ever produced, came up and looked
over the map.
“It ain’t correct, old boas,” he said, address
ing the New-Yorker. “Too many ore-bodies
put in.”
“But there’s no shaft, no. machinery, no
mine I ” roared the man from Wall street.
“Well,” replied old Sawyer reflectively, “1
don’t see how you can scour.. The fellows who
bought it are tiie ones to kick. You get a hand
some commission, you know.”
“But the samples run up to §1,500!”
“Salted.”
“I’m swindled!”
“Don’t you know you said a man couldn’t be
too tricky in Bellin’ a mine on Wall street!” in
quired Old Sawyer, and only a true Christian,
such us are reared in pyramid' District, can un
derstand the feelings of pious elation which
Brother Sawyer experienced as the gentleman
from Wall street, accomoanied by his experts,
drove fnriously off for Reno, blasting the blos
soming sage-brush along the route with their
fiery language.
A RIDE ON A SAFETY-VAIiVE.
“tfimmv Carr came to America in 1835,” says
the Cincinnati Enquirer, “and took up his
abode in this city soon afterward. ■ Liking the
country, be settled here to work at bis business
of machinist and engineer, and was always a
good citizen and a faithful employe. Be was
rather old to begin Uie profession of arms when
the War oegan, but he did the next best thing,
he went into the navy, enlisting as assistant
engineer on the steamer Queen of the West, a
freight boat which had been bought by the Gov
ernment and altered into a 4 ram ’ here in Cincin
nati. The vessel, which was under command of
Capt. Elliott, was ordered South, and it was at
the battle of iMemphis that Jimmy Carr met
with this particular adventure, which made him
a hero in as peculiar a manner as ever hero
gained the title. We give the tale os he tells it.
44 4 lt was on the stli of June,’ said Jimmy.
4 that Memphis was taken. I remember it well,
for it was a hot day, and I was in a hot place,
too, 1 can tell vou. The fleet was lying five
miles above Memnbis, and the Qneen was a vol
unteer that morning. Early in the day we got
orders to move down towards the Rebel catter
ies, but had no sooner got within range than the
“ Johnnies” opened tire on us. Our Captain
called on Curtis, the first engineer, to let loose,
and he did, and wo were soon steaming down
the river.
“* We weren’t long under way until we had
150 pounds of steam ou, and still rising. Curtis
detailed-me to look after the boilers—Sve hod
four which were on deck—and I went off to my
post. The first thing I noticed was that the
safety-valve wasn’t weighed hdavy enough for
the extra pressure, and the steam escaped.
I couldn’t see anything lying around to weight
it down with but a large lump of coal. I lilted
that on the lever, but it was no use, as
it was tumbled off in a minute or two. By
this time wc must have had fully 300 pounds of
steam on, and on looking out I saw the- Rebel
gunboat, the Gen. Lovell, steaming up and fir
ing at us. Wc had no guns aboard and only
eleven sharpshooters, and the shot was flying
around us pretty lively. I knew it was the
Captain’s intention to try to sink the Lovell,
and I saw that it would never do to allow the
steam to escape as it Was doing. I had to think
quick—there was nothing near that I could
weight down the valve with, but I was bound
not to be beat, and I just got astride of the
lever myself and sat down ou it It was pretty
hot but I stuck it out I looked out and the
Lovell was only a couple of hundred yards off.
She stopped to round-to, but the Queen was
too quick for her, and with a rush, wc
were Into her,, just astern of the wheel,
and almost went clean through her. 1
was so excited that I never took ray eyes off her
when we were coming up, and just bore my
weight down on the lever, never thinking to
bold on to anything. When we struck, the
shock was'so terrible it just knocked me bead
and heels over the boilers. Curtis was watch
ing me, and thought I was killed, and halloed
out: “There goes poor Jimmy!” but I wasn't
gone. 1 was stunned for a minute, but jumped
up and climbed over the boilers and straddled
the lever again, this time taking a good bold.
“ * The Lovell sank in about five minutes, but
wc had hardly time to get clear of her before
another Rebel craft, the Beauregard, steamed
up toward us. We treated her the same way as
we treated the Lovell, but this time I kept my
scat and clung on (or dear life, and the shock
didn’t knock me off. Soon after the Queen,
haying nothing more to do, drew out from the
fight and 1 got down from my perch. I felt a
little sore, and had a lew burns,—for it was a hot
place.l was in—but that was all the worse I was
for the adventure,’ ”
THE NIHILIST COAT,
Koc York Dispatch.
Monsieur S was an editor on the staff of
the leading "Warsaw paper. One cold morning
he was ambling over the frozen ground in the
direction of his office, with a brand-new over
coat on, when the passing Police-Superintendent
halted'Mm and asked him to follow him to his
office. M. S had enough respect for his
own welfare to do so.
After a sharp inquiry Into his personal affairs,
he was asked where bis coat came from.
“From Posen.”
“X thought so,” said the Superintendent.
“You can go.”
M. S went, no little mystified. There
after, when be appeared in the streets in bis new
overcoat, he was sure to meet a police-spy, who
invariably halted him and searched bis pockets.
The regularity with which this occurred became
monotonous, and he called on the Superintend
ent, and requested an eiolanation.
“ Whv do you wear this overcoat?” demanded
the Superintendent,
“Because I have no other. ‘What has that got
to d 6 with the question?”
only ray men have orders to stop
you every time you are seen in the street iu
that coat.”
“I know that already. But why?”
“The.coat came from Posen, didn’t it?”
“Yes.”
“Well, Posen is the hot-bed of Nihilism. The
bead of the movement there is the cloth-man
ufacturer K. The cloth yonr coat is made of
comes from his factory. Do von perceive?”
•' “Not quite. Because a Nihilist makes the
cloth I wear, am I necessarily a Nihilist too?”
“If you were, vou would have been in Si
beria long ago. Still, your wearing that coat is
a bad example. Take my advice and get an
other.”
As, for reasons which will be obvious to all
journalists, M. S could not get another, he
emigrated to Vienna, where be tells bis story in
the 'J'aqesblaiU and wears his prescribed garment
ia peace.
HE HAD FORGOTTEN.
Rockland Cenrter.
An audience of Boston’s beauty, culture, and
refinement filled the Old South Church, The
. hour for the lecture drew near, lingered briefly
upon the point, and passed. An impatient
rustle began to sweep through the bouse, as the
speaker of the evening still delayed bis appear
ance upon the platform. The Committee
glanced nervously at each other, conferred
together in short and hurried whispers,and then
hastily repaired to the ante-room. An elderly
man was standing in the centre of the room as
they entered, clutching wildly at bis flowing
hair and muttering incoherently to himself.
“My dear sir,” exclaimed the Chairman of
the Committee, hastening forward, “ the hour
advertised for the lecture to begin has long
since passed, and the audience is impatient.”
“ Gentlemen,” said the lecturer, in an im
pressive voice, “I have come to this place in
accordance with an agreement to appear before
a cultured Boston audience. I have forgotten
to change my clothes, and 1 am dressed In my
old gardening outfit. I have forgotten to put
on a clean shirt, and behold this gingham apol
ogy; I have forgotten to remove my boots, and
hence these coverings ornamented with visible
traces of agricultural pursuits; and, saddest of
all, I have totally and completely forgotten the
subject of my lecture.”
if the members of that Committee live to be
49 years old, they will never forget .the expres
sion of utter helplessness and misery that the
speaker’s every word and gesture implied.
It was Ralph Waldo Emerson, and he was to
lecture upon “Memory.”
THE "WAX IT WORKS,
Cincinnati Saturday Sight,
. The editor was sitting in his sanctum when a
man, laboring under considerable apparent ex
citement, walked in with the paper in his hand,
and, pointing to a small paragraph read: “The
genial Col. Mumblechock thinks of taking an
Eastern journey soon. May be enjoy a pleasant
trip Is the wish of his many friends.’’
“Now, sir!” said the eidted man, “lam
Col. Mumblechock, and I have called to Inquire
by what authority yon make this use of my
name in your paper? ” .
“First time! ever saw It,” replied the editor,
glancing at the item, “ but I suppose its all
right. My local reporter is quite enterprising
in bis pursuit of news.,’
“ But I never gave him permission to use my
name in this manner,” persisted the Colonel,
“ Very likely.” said theeditor. • u But you arc
going E ? ast, ain’t you?” ;
“Ccrtriinly.” _
“And you haven’l|an v objection to your friends
wishing you a pleasant’trio?”
“ That is all right, but I don’t want my name
in the paper, and in the future you will oblige
me by leaving it out,” v* »• •

it,” and the Colonel bowed himself stllSj’ out.

John did as he was requested, and shortly
after he came back and 'reported that Col.
Mumblcchock went to the counting-room and
bouplit twenty-live papers, which, after marking
somethingm them, he ordered put in wrappers,
and was busy in directing them.
THAT DOLXiAR.
JJttrcit tree Presi.
A stranger who was yesterday haying his
boots blacked by one of the post-office brigade,
asked tiie lad what, he would do if some one
should band him a dollar.
“ I’d give half of it to tiie heathen and spend
the rest on tiie Fourth,” was the reply.
“ That’s right—yon are a good hoy,” contin
ued tl]e man. “I like to give money to such a
lad as you.”
When bis boots were finished he banded the
her a nickel and walked off, never referring to the
dollar, which the hoc had been 1 almost certain
of. He had gone about half a block when the
lad overtook him and asked:
“Did you intend to give me a dollar?”

THE EIGHT-HOUR LEAGUE.
To tfte Editor of Tut Tribune.
Chicago, July 5. — 1 admire your arguments
in reeard to the Eight-Hour Labor Question, but
differ from you on principle. I believe that if
you are convinced that you are on the wrong
side’of the question you will admit it. On
July 4 you publish an interview with Mr. Er
hardt, one of the Socialist members of the Leg
islature, and your argumqpts following are cor
rect as far as they go.. Hut Mr. Erbardt is a
Socialist, and that party >ls not “The Eigh
t League”; they are two separate, dis
tinct carries, and their views were expressed
at a recent discussion, when the Socialists dis
puted the great principles of the Eight-Hour
League, The Socialists .plainly assert their
creed, and claim that the relations of employer
and employe are wrong; that they raust'bc
changed, and that the laborer must be emanci
pated from a chained oppression. The eight
hour men believe that jf people who cannot
ameliorate their own condition cannot emanci
pate themselves; and they wish to work in har
mony with the employer for the improvement of
both classes, and thev include all men who
work. The Labor party claim that, with
eight’ hours work per day, they will be greater
consumers; that they will become more edu
cated when they have more leisure; they desire
this time for education and ioiprovement, and
no one can deny the fact that with more leisure
they will be greater consumers. This will
create a new demand for their labor, tor which
they can demand better pay. and this will be one
item to contribute to their receiving as much
for eight hours’ work as. for ten. Again, there
are, and have been for quite a number of years,
a great many idle men, some of. whom
are tramps, who would work if they could
get it, and those who would not work
can and will be made to work if there is work
for them to do; and when the idle mauls em
ployed be becomes a consumer, making a de
mand for new boots, new clothes, new hats, and
whole victuals; he no longer is a drone, living
on the labor of others; he will change from a
curse to a blessing. This Is not only to the in
terest of the laboring man,but to the interest of
the manufacturer, the farmer, and the capitalist.
It. is beyond the power of contradiction that
every mao should produce all that be consumes,
or ah equivalent for it. *Wlth the large.percent
of unemployed at work, they who are at work
now will be relieved of the tax
which they have to pay for the support of the
idle. It matters not how one looks at the mat
ter, whether it be the larger amount of money
received or the smaller amount paid out, the
laborer will have more of a margin between bis
expenses and his wages for every hour of labor
performed then over what he receives and re
tains now. As to tbe exact amount Ido not
pretend to say. but it is certain that the inde
pendence whfen the laborer will gain would be
sufficient to' supply his necessary demands. Is
there anything revolutionary, dishonorable, or
against tbe interest of our common good in
giving more independence and education to that
class of people who arc the muscle and brain on
which the existence of our human race de
pends!
For many years improvements In machinery
and agriculture have been successfully intro
duced, and that success has been attained al
most entirely because the inventions savedlabor.
In many instances where ten men were once
required, one or two sow can do the same
amount of work. The other SO, 50, or 20 per
cent (whatever the exact figures may be) of la
boringmen have, on account of being left with
out any honorable employment, fallen to
begging, like tbe tramps, borrowing, like
onr savings-bank thiefs, and stealing, like the
criminals we have to maintain at Joliet, where
their labor is put in competition with ours; and
if the pay the State receives is insufficient to
give them a living as a criminal lives, we have
to make up the difference. The cigbt-hourmen
do not complain, but rather rejoice at the intro
duction of new machinery, but demand, for the
public good, that the labor be distributed. The
class of men who made their demonstration on
July Fourth are laborers. And, when they take
that day on which to drive out the drones of
society and give work to those who seek it, they
will receive the co-operation of our industrious
Republic. Can they not have the support of

A Bright Boy’s Happy Thought.
The Hartford correspondent of the Spring
field liepublican save: “That was a pretty
bright thought of one of the Battersons, who
when employed some years since as a lad In an
office in New York, was sent to present a bill to
a shaky concern, with orders to collect it at all
hazard's. After much urging * the 'head of the
debtor house gave him a‘check for SIOO, the
amount of the bill. .Hurrying to the bank at
which it was payable, the laid presented the
check only to be told, ‘Not enough funds to
meet it.’ ‘How much is tba account short!’
was the boy’s quickr retort. ‘Seven dollars,’
said the teller, it lacked but % minute or two
of 3 o’clock, and the teller was about to close
the door on the boywhen the latter suddenly
pulled $7 from his own Docket, and pushing it
over with a deposit check said: ‘Pot that to
the credit of &Co.,’ the carries who bad
given the check. The teller did so, when the
lad at once presented the check for SIOO, and
drawing the fall amount thereof went back to
his employers in triumph. Bat, as he puts it,
& Co., who faffed the very next day, were
hopoing mad when they found they had no
funds in their banltf ’b
