Tes graphic story of Frank Hatton's escape from Johnstown will be read with interest. Frank Hatton is the exPost master General and one of the founders of the New York Press who was squeezed out of the company by Robert P. Porter. He is a competent newspaper writer and a generally bright and observant man. Ik tbe Morning News will file com plaints against a few of its Republican constituents who tried to use their fraudulent receipts, who cast illegal votes, who committed perjury, who gave and accepted bribes, the attorney-gen eneral will be happy to prosecute them. The fraudulent receipts were found in the hands of the Republicans, the frauds, so far as known, were committed by Re publicans. If the News really wishes these criminals prosecuted and is nut writing (or buncombe, complaints could easily be filed to which the Attorney Gen eral would give quick and effecient at teution. There never was a more honest, capable and more efficient public prosecutor in the state than Attorney General Biggs, and the at tempt of the News to accuse him of dere liction in his public duties is as shame less as It is untrue. Tbe attempt of the News to instruct Attorney Biggs duties is ridiculous. If the News has any legal knowledge whatever, which Is doubtful, it should know that complaints must be filed be fore the Attorney can take action. Let the complaints be filed. In his Mrs. Harrikt Prescott Spofford has written to the New York Herald giv ing suitable advice to girls on the subject of exercise. She say s : There are few things lovelier to the ■eye than a young girl. A baby may be sweeter,,tenderer, dearer; but « young girl is as satisfactory In another way. Lithe, Symmetrical, willowy, beaming with unquestioning content, her eyes are «tars, her teeth are pearls, her blushes smiles, lier smiles are caresses. * * * But if the young girl is like the dnllclonsness of the rounded and sun pierced grape, and the woman at thirty is the clear, strung wine, yet how lovely is the bloom upon i liât grape I And the question is how to keep that bloom and add to it all the rest. The question is how to make that rosy cheek and white forehead perennial, their beauty fed by wholesome and time-resisting currents, and to enrich them besides with the con sciousness and wisdom and charm of soul that should belong to later years, all ■without exhausting the supplying foun tains of health. ore To the questions of how to be round, liealthfui and beautiful she answers by recommending food, flannels, and exei • cise. There may be room for such advice, but it strikes us that the girls are suffi ciently beautiful and healthful already. They may increase in loveliness, but certainly the Amerioan girl, nervous, high.strung, witty, independent and delicate cannot be improved by a propo gation of English buxom aud hearty stolidity. ■ beauty. provokes any thrills of joy in the be holder. An American prefers beauty and leas health. But health and beauty are perfectly consistent and theie is no reason why the American girl should not be both healthy and beautiful, as she generally is.

Breaches of good taste and vio lations of every rule of composition have been more frequent than any clear de scriptlon of awful events which needed no embellishments. The weakness of the press was evident from the first day. There were the events which, If put into a plain, unvarnished tale, connected aud straightforward, would have carried its own horrors.

Will yon kindly allow me space in yonr paper to day to lay before the public the manner and extent to which H. P. Soulier, manager of the Opera House, is handicapping we In my endeavors to pull the Choral Club through a creditable per formance of tbe opera ''Bohemian Girl." I have long hesitated 'about asking the attention of the citizens of this citv to the way local talent is treated by this management but after having done ail mortal man could do to treat them gentlemen and to transact business in a gentlemanly manner. I have but two situations open, one to plead for our rights, the other to demand them. I naturally choose the latter. 1 will not go Into lengthy detail about this matter, but give you the situation in as few words as possible. The most important matte ron which Mr. Soulier and I now differ is in regard to the use of the house for rehearsals. For the last mouth I have been endeavoring to get him to say what he would charge for the use of the house per night for rehearsals. He has repeatedly put me off, and all the satisfaction l could get was that I was to use the house and lie would settle the price afterward,but would not be hard on us. I had been to him about six times In reference to this matter and at last realizing the necessity of having to use the house I arranged for the club to use It one night, which wo did, All would probably have w< nt well and our club come out the little end of the horn had not Mr. Soulier been foolish ea->ngli to remark to a prominent citizen that he would charge me |3S per night, inti mating that he would sicken me. This gentleman was sufficiently interested In not seeing us downed to come to me and put me on as guard I went to see the genial manager the next day and had been with him about two and a half seconds when he sud I were complimenting each other on our good looks and interrupting each other, in a manner that was hardly polite, when one or the other would discover some new feature that he thought he could demolish. 1 went there as a gen tleman and was grossly insulted. The politest invitation l received was to come back on the stage and he would "do me." I dont know what this favorite expression of his means but sup pose it is something worse than being cremated alive. After the rather disgraceful terminus of our I interview I felt that I could not afford to get mixed up with him again and so employed agents to transact my business with him. By these agents I have him repeatedly and to the laet one which was sent this morning, my messenger brought back the answer that if I wanted to transact business with him 1 must come to see him as he would not recognize any agents or even would not recognize my letters. In other words he refuses to put in writing what he will charge me for t he house. Out of consideration for the position I hold as president of the Choral Club, I will not allow myself to be forced into a controversy with Mr. Soulier again less he or his agents should deliberately Interfere with the production of the opera "Bohemian Girl ' on next Wednes day, my sent letters to U1F in closing let me assure tho public that although we are seriously handicapped by his refusal to allow ns to use the house for rehearsals tlie club will double its efforts to excel! all previous pradne tions. We hold a written contract which gives na the use of the house for the per formance on Wednesday night. N. Dusuanb Ci.oward, President. Another Simko ëtory.

II I« Not DemocratIc. Mew York World. Representative Randall is right in saying that the way for the Democrats to regain power is to get together again. When a party is divided npon a question of principle or of policy, what is the right way of getting It together? What is the Democratic method of settling snob differences? There are but two ways. Either the minority must yield its views, in obedience to the principle of I nie, is to a I majority be a compromise, the method adopted by the Democrats in Congress in relation to tbe one point of difference—tho tariff question. A small minority—less than one sixth wished to reduce the revenues by abol isbing the internal revenue. The great majority stood by the traditional Demo cratic policy of reducing first, and most the taxes on the necessities of the people through a reduction of tho tariff. A compromise measure was agreed embodying both policies. All of the 168 Democrats in the House sup ported It. Is it still Mr. Randall's idea thatjthe way for the Democrats to "get together" is for the I «4 to go over to the four? That is not reasonable. It is pot Democratic.

A Ifeescrlptl, That Will Thrill Every An gier Who Reads It. "By George!

The reel is whizzing in a threatening way, and our friend has a hard time to keep his thumb on the barrel of the reel and at the same time avoid having bis knuckles rapped and torn by the rapidly vqlving handle.

During Wellington's Spanish caminign, there were no more daring troops than the Irish,and of these no one was more distinguish ed for cool courage than a certain wild fellow n ill mil O'Keefe, He was not a well behaved soldier when in camp, and his Irregularities frequently brought him punishment. But one day, by a single deed, bo become a hero. Tim French occupied, with one company. a fortification uiion a mountain top from which it seemed tnqiosidblo to drive them. Gi n, Picton, the Commander of the English divr sion, wishing to prevent useless bloodshed, determined to invest tbe place, for, os he said to his staff, "The French could pelt us away with stones, should wo make an assault." "If your honor will let me, I'll take tho hill alone," said Private O'Keefe, who hod^B heard tho remark, and now. having given tho military salute, stood at attention, "If you do so," replied tho general, who bad frequently noticed O'Keefe's reckless daring, "I will report it to Lord YVelhngton, and I promise you your discharge, with a shilling a day for life." O'Keefe, having whispered a few words to tho captain of bis company, stole away, and presently was seen climbing up tho goat path. Tho English sentinels fired at him, thinking he was deserting to tho enemy. Tho French naturally thought tho same; they received him into their stronghold, and treated him with groat klndn began playing a port, laughing, dancing, singing, shouting, so that the French imag hied they hod got a madman, and told him to leave the fort, as they tunt no provisions to spare. Meantime, while O'Keefe had been divert ing tho garrison In this way, hla company bod been clomlieriug up tbe path. Tbe sur prise was complete, and the fort was captured without tho loss of a man.

II. R. Tracey, then editor of The Washington Re publican, was in tho audience and, seeing an opportunity to improve upon the joke, pen ciled tho following lines and sent them to the platform: "Dbar Artemus—I f you will place your self under my guidance I'll take you t® 'see a man' without crossing tbe street." Artemus accepted tho invitation, and while the great-audience impatiently but with much amusement awaited the reappearance of the humorist the latter was making tho acquaint ance of Aman and luxuriating ata weil laded refreshment board. Of course everybody "caught on to" the phrase, and men became fond of getting up between the acts and "going to seo a man." The restaurateur's business from this time forward boomed.

The mule reared upon his hind legs, and, giving an nst on lulling bray, started down tbe rood.at a breakneck speed.
