New Jersey, has Prohibition and protection fallacies seem to be going out of fashion simultane ously. Wmm Speaker Reed fonnd himself feeaten byo ue of his own rules he counted In a quorum to sustain his denial of an appeal, "just tbe same," as when lie was ruling by "general parliamentary law," without rnles. Meantime when there should have been 165 Republican votes to sustain him there were 114 only. It really makes little difference whether Speaker Reed has 114 or only 14 voteq lie can carry his measures just the same. Thk Philadelphia Inquirer,commenting 'on the action of the House,Hays that, after »lively tilt "the Democrats were forced to give In, as usual." With a narrow majority of four members only, the situ ation in which the speaker with unfair and strictly partisan rulings "forced the Democrats to give in, as nsual," is not com mendahle. The Democrats are not "forced to give in" for any public busi ness, but to meet tbe exigencies of the Republican party, Mus. Shaw, the whistler, now In England, has been interviewed in regard to the probability of her marriage to an English Lord. When asked if whist ling paid, nhe answered : You bet. I am just full of engage ments. That language is so distinctively and persistently American that it shonid cap tivate any Lord of good taste. In addi tion to that, the ability of Mrs. Shaw to whistle into a fortune shonid make It easy for her to wiu the heart and sup port the title of a noble Englishman. RiriiAiti) Gobki.br, a Milwaukee bar ber, has put the detectives, who do not detect, to shame by huuting down a trio of buuoo steerers who swindled him out of |2,000.

Besides this unknown quantity, »there Is the Blair fantastic folly, the several subsidy hills, private pension bills, bounty bills, river aud harbor bills, all of which may impose such a burden •u the Treasury that it would be tmpru dent to attempt to reduce the revenue, notwithstanding the relief which has been promised. The situation for the majority party, with not enougL majority to feel Becnre, is not an euviabie one. It looks a« if the Republicans have won an empiy victory in electing "Harrison aud Pro tection."/ _ Thk tariff reformers would have been elated if Ayres had wou the race in Phil adelpbia. but they are not disheartened because he did not wiu. The protection ists are entrenched behind custom, be hind the party which has been dominant for twenty five years, behind wealth, be hind the strongest machine management that ever held sway and distributed swag in this or in any other couutry. But with everything in its favor, except principle aud honor, the parly has been -compelled to fight for life. From this on U will be compelled to fight harder and harder till driven to the wall. It must reform or die. It is more than likely to do both. It ie likely to make a death bed repentance. Meautime the tariff re formers are increasing in spirit and in numbers till they do not hesitate throw down the gage of battle in every stronghold of the enemy. This attack Pig Iron Kelley's district was an attack upon the citadel. The out works have been carried. There is esprit de the Democrats formers which prompts them to advance on the enemy wherever he makes a stand. That spirit, confident in the glow of pa triotic enthusiasm, aud certain of final vie ory, cannot be disheartened They ha 'e no reason to doubt the result. Their advance may be retarded ; it is impossi ble to stop it. Even the fight that Rev burn has been compelled to make is proof of this. Sullivan, the musical half of the firm of Gilbert and Sullivan, is disgruntled. He is not satisfied with the reception "The Gondoliers" ha» met in the United States. He Bay* that the company has ? Misrepresented the opera, and the papers have misrepresented tbe company, and he la mad. The plain truth seems to that the unprecedented success of several corps prevailing among aud the tàriff re light operas has turned the heads of the firm of Gilbert and Sullivan. They have conceived the idea that they are tight opera purveyors to the world at large, and anything to which they attach their brand must go. It mnst not only go, but it must go with applause, and must bring in money. If a light opera put out, by them Is not applauded by the public, the fault Is with the public, uot with the light opera. Consequently when "The Gon doliers" failed In New York Mr. Light music Sullivan got mad and abused everybody, including the newspapers and the public. Mr. Sullivan may succeed iu changing the opinion of the public but it is more likely that he will succeed in making himself ridiculous. Even now, the public is laughing at his ineffective rage. __________ Tnn recent race agitation has recalled the remark of Victor Hugo, that the Ethiopean would, iu the process of ages, change his skin from its dark hue to a lighter shade, and that all humanity would eventually become white. The ethnologists have taken up the prophecy with more or less vehemence, and more or less knowledge to discover what they could make out of the discussion. It would be well for them to bear on« fact In their minds, namely, that the Euro pean race will dominate the world. The negro, as the Aztec and the American Indian, may degenerate and be decimated by exposure, war and disease. He may remain stationary in the forward march of civilization till he is outstripped. He may advance with such relative slow ness as not to obtain a place, even, with the all-conquering European, In any case it seems folly to expect that he will do more than follow at a distance. The facts concerning the increase or de crease in the numoers of the negro race do not affect the question at issue. Statements and statistics vary according to the prejudices of the respective writers. One proves that the negro is ••dying out," another proves, sometimes by the same statistics, that the race is increasing rapidly. However that may be, it may be accepted as a fact, that history, experience and the present con ditions of the two races confirm with ab solute certainty, that the European will dominate the world. The negro may take second place, but it seems more likely that he will "be lost- in tbe shuffle." A QUESTION TO SETTLE The difficulty in the Presbyterian Church over the Westminster confession it the legitimate result of a greater evil. In 18<I9, for mercenary and ambitious motives, tbe New School and Old School wtags of the Presbyterlau Church united. Their doctrines were a.« divergent as the doctrines which lately divided the Pres bytery of New York, when it voted for a revision of the confession. The fact is the churches consented to a union of convenience. Now they find that they are united physically and sepa ated in faith. It is the natural conse quence of allowing the whoopers, the sentimentalists, the business men and the politicians to run the church courts. It war urged that one big church could fight the devil more effectively and cheaper than two small churches; that the church should present a solid front to the enemy ; that It did not matter about doctrines, S) long as the two churches could unite barmofllounly iu the same work, The event proves that the feather heads were wrong. The churches which were diilcreut iu doctrine then are dif feront now. The event proves that the doct rines which were ignored iu the union of the two churches then, have arisen to divide them again now. Tho $veut Droves that » union of )>»ads I» not a union f>f he*rts ( and t h*t the doctrines which were uot agreed to then must be •P'eed to now, or there will be two churches still. Churches and preachers may err just as other men and other organ!zatiors may err. The errors they make should be corrected just as the errors in profane affairs are corrected. The quicker the Presbyterian church divides agaiu, or looks the difference of doctrine squarely in the face, the sooner aud the better It will he settled. So loug as the future destination of the heathen, and of tbe infants was ig nored, things weut on very well, but now since the questions are up, the heathen, the iufauts and all CbristenJom demaud that they shall be definitely assigned to some more comfortable surroundings iu the groat hereafter. a Hrnlduinor Kille Uauge.

New Casti.k, Feb. 19.—At the City Court lost nicht Rachel Benson, colored, was charged with disorderly conduct and with using abusive language to Sarah Jane Emory, of the same fraternity. After an exhaustive list of witnesses had been beard, Mayor Hanson sentenced Rachel to a fine of $2 50 and costs, and held her in $50 bail to keep the peace. Rachel then arose and made the court, room fairly shake with vile language and oaths, whicli were repeated by her friends ana those of the plaintiff. The mavor ordered her to be silent twice, but to no avail, and two stalwart policemen seized the frantic women, and in a short time she was languishing in the "colored ladies' cell," in the county jail. Both factions of the women have been a menace and a nuisance to tbo whole community for years, with their abusive language and vile deeds. Rachel will, do doubt, have thirty days to repent in, and in the meantime if the other crowd continue to disturb the peace of the city they will be summarily treated as common nuisances.

WHEN ROM ANCEWASOVER Miss Dora Dwight, on her thirtieth birth day, received the first love letter of her life— the first offer of marriage. It was handed into the dormitory of the Physicians' Or phans' home—not, as may be supposed, a borne for the orphans doctors have made, but for the children of deceastsi medical men. Miss Dwight was matron there, and at the moment was changing the pillowcases before the wash. "I stipiKise it's aliout Johnny Gilroy and tils swelled knee," said the servant. "Dr. Emory soetnsto think it wuss." Miss Dwight, however, waited until the girl was gone before she opened the not«. Then, not greatly to ber surprise, she read the word»: "My Dkar Doha -.You have known me since you were a baby. Do you like me well enough to marry me? Of course, you and I have given up romance long ago. I have had two wives. You musthethirty-twoortliree." ["Just thirty," said Dora to herself; "he is sixty-nine."] "You will greatly improve your [Kwition by marrying me, and I always liked you. Please meet me in tbe garden after hours. I hope to find you under tbe willows. Yours, hopefully, B. Emory." it was not a love letter calculated to flatter tlie heart of a woman of any age. At first she said: "I will refuse him. meiubered how good and kindly he was. "I will accept him," she said, "bat no romance shall be in my talk with him. He shall find mo like a stone. He shall bave the sort of wife he want«." It was early when the door bell clanged, anil a foot crossed the long passage, and, ceasing to echo on the painted floor, struck tbe stones. Earlier than she bad expected him. but she was ready for him under the willows iu the garden. "I am glad to find you here," said a deep, old voice, "1 thought you would be sensible enough to do whatlasked, butl wasnot quite sure—not quite. No. You have read my note carefully? Yes? Well, imagine timt I say to you again what I wrote. I await your answer with anxiety." She looked at him, and he saw that she smiled in an odd, emtairrasged way. "Will you marry me, my dear?" he added. "1 see I must make it utsier for you to speak." "it was a little hard to begin," she said. "Tbo usual reason moves me," he said. "Pm in love with you. 1 think it best to marry agaiu, and I know no one like you— no one. I've had two wives before, I admit However, ueither of them complained of me, I believe, 1 have a very nice borne, and, really, it will lie a very much better position for you than being mutron of an institution. You do it admirably, butl bate to see you here. Your father was older than I, but we were great friends. I think be would advise you to sny 'yes,' " She put bet Laud upon his arm. "lam a very practical woman," she said. "If 1 marry you 1 forfeits good position that may be mine for life—an independent posi tion. It is dangerous," 1 "My dear, yöu'li have half of all that Is mine; and I'm not poor." "You don't think the young, I know," sbo answered, " Win) thinks a woman young at 301 But yotl have four sons, hard, business men, oldri' tban I. They'll not approvo of tbo milch." "They are not at home; it can't matter," said Dr. Emory. "But," said Miss Dwight, with cruel dis tinctness, "the trouble will come When you die. You have made a mistake; you are older than poor father. If you leave me a widow your sons will make every effort to take everything from me; I shall be left with nothing, my place gone, my habits of indus try, my briskness. I make no doubt you have heard of such cases; 1 havo." Tbe suitor sat—and who can marvel at it?— stricken quite dumb by this speech. At last be gasped: "You are candid." "I am," she answered—"I am, indeed. Now is your time. You can take back your offer, Dr. Emory. Everything can be as it was before. I 'll tear up your letter; I am con tent that all shall remain as it is." "But, then," he answered, "I am not. After all, all you sny is only true. I can face the music, I hope. Mv answer is this: Marry me, and I will make a will, leaving you everything, on our wedding day." "That would be unjust," she said. "It would be a will to be contested. Leave me a home and an income." She named tbe sum sufficient, to keep it up. "That is moderate—sensible. And you will say 'yes,'" he said. "I promise, of course, I shall make it better than that, still leaving my sons no cause for complaint; but it is not my fault that we are not more romantic." "Let the romance come afterward, if it can," said Miss Dwight. After this, they walked about the garden aw hile, and the day of the wedding was set, leaving time to find a new matron for the establishment. Miss Dwight was certainly, us domestics say, "bettering herself;" but she was not elated. In fact, a little regret stole into her heart as she walked about the place where site had been so independent, so respected; and won dered whether she should be happy in the future. Then she re U least," she said, w ith a degree of bit •ss, "I matched him with his 'romance is Out of the question lietween two like us." Siatehed him, and weut further." The bell tinkled iu the hall just as supper time was over that evening, aud iu a few momouts a servant came to call Miss Dwight. "It's a gentleman ; he don't know who he wants," she said. "Some one who knows all about the place, he told me." Aud Dora weut into tbe parlor, a bare look ing room, long, and with white walls, a panel carpet, a library table, a horsehair sofa, and six chairs, and the portrait of tbe founder of the home over the mantelpiece. There stood under this portrait, with his elbow on tho inarbio itself, a gentleman. Dark eyed, dark haired, with a face that was not handsome as delightful. Writers otteu spend a good deal of time in discussing w hat it is that men see in tbe women whom they fall in love with—when they say: "This G the woman for tne|" I believe t he woman who meets for tbe first time tbe only man on earth to whom she Would willingly give herself, has deeper ex periences still. The moment bad came to Mist Dwight. 1er much She had waited thirty years for it, and now she did not know what it meant. But an un conscious smile came to tier lips, a light to lier soft blue eyes, a flush to her smi ioth cheek. Kite looked prettier than she could have dreamed possible of at that moment. The stranger told his business, cently come from Paris, where lie had been occupied in certain affairs for ten years. Meanwhile his brother had died, having re cently lost Ids wife. He understood, to Ids astonishment, that his Utile nephews were iu tbe Home. "Of course, I wish to take charge of them," he said. "I am a bachelor, but 1 can arrange for their care. They need not live on char ity." •'It is not cliarity," said Miss Dwight. *'Pr, Ellwood gave largely to the Homo in his life time. The children are considered little ladies and gentlemen. The}' are well edu cated; taught the usages of good aociAy. They will have a collegiate course when they leave this place. Most of. the girls become teachers, 1 think. The boys choose their pro fession. There would at least be no need of haste in removing them." They talked together awhile. She gathered that he was what might be called a poor man. Ho lingered after the hbys hud come and gone-. He came on the morrow, and again and again. The ostensible motive n os to see bis nephews, hut he also desired to see Miss Dwight Meanwhile, Dr. Emory culled every after noon had consulted with Dora us to the new parlor carpet and the china. "Buy good things," she said. "What is tbe use of getting a eurpet that will fade soon, or china thal chips; and silver makes a table look well. Besides, the things alxmt a bouse belong to the widow—if 1 should be left" "She is deuced practical," said poor Dr. Emory to himself. This was after the new matron arrived and was being drilled ill tier duties by Miss Dwight, who calmly said before every oue: "You see I'm to bo married shortly." Once he even remonstrated, saying: "Do you know, poor Nellie never talked like that, nor my dear Maria." "Of course not," said Miss Dwight. "But you remarked in your offer to mo tliat (of course) you and I had done with romance long ago." Dr. Emory tried to laugh, but he was not happy. That afternoon lie took a long, long ride to the sea shore, anil, stabling his horse at the hotel, walked down to the Loach, son" was over. The caterers expocted only a little chunoe custom. It was a day when driving clonds made it cool enough to be pleasant. There he sat down behind a big mound of sand, und watched the sea, and thought of Maria, und how he used so often to kiss the back of her neck because the two little curls looked so cunning, and how she thought him handsome; how dear they wore to each other I How long his reverie had lasted lie did uot know, when merry voices sounded in his ear. A man's tones, those of two little boys, and n woman's. Surely be knew the last speaker. He peeped from under his big Panama bat, and saw Dora She hat brought .tbe Ellwood boys down for a holiday, at their uncle's re quest, anti he bail come also. Dr. Emory guessed who the gentleman was, for he had had the case of these boys laid before him, and was looking for two orphaus to fill their places when they should be gone, but the preeenceof Mr. Ellwood gave bira-offense. "It has quit the air of a family party," he said. The boys played about, dug with their lit tle spades anil Ailed with white sand those (minted (mils which all good picnickers buy at tbe seaside. They took off their shoes and stockings and waded along the edge of the water. The elder people seemed as happy as they, and how young ! At last they sat down very near to Dr. Emory, with their backs to his sand burrow, and lie saw a man's brown band drop upon a little white one and hold it tight Without showing himself be could uot see their faces. "Do you know why I asked you to come here?" said the owner of the brown hand. "To mind the children, as Sally says," re plied the owner of the white hand. "No, to tell you something," said Brown Hand. "Darling little woman, prettiest and sweetest of ail created beings, I bave loved you from the ßrst moment I met you. Do you think you would mind marrying a man who lias his fortune yet to UhlkeJ Could vou be poor with binij UJU yet Le happy? You see I am pfiôr, but I adore you and I'm selfish enough to ask you to do just that for my sake, tf you can try to love me." The white hand fluttered. A soft voice trembled. I should not have to try it," she sobbed. "It seems to come of itself, and as for pov erty, I'd rather bog with you than live with out you and have millions. Ob i don't look liuppy, don't look happy, dear, w hen we both must beso miserable. I'm engaged; my wed ding day is set. I thought 1 had outlived romance, and I promised to marry an old man who only wants a lady at the head of bis house. Obi why did you uot come to me one day earlier?" Silence fell Dr. Emory heard them rise and go away. In a minute more a little boy rushed up to tbe sand mound and poked it with his spade "Here's a dead man," be said; "adrownded dead man." "No; It's a tipsy man," replied Billy. "Let's pile sand on him." This they proceeded to do, until Billy de scried "uncle beckoning," and they deported on the run. After tbo last train had gone cityward, an elderly gentleman took a sandwich and some ale at tbe hotel before getting into bis gig. lie emptied a gnat ileal of sand out of bis pockets, did uot lee the waiters, and scorned to be, the cashier said, "in a temper." It was Dr. Emory. Ho drove straight home, and sut down at bis dosk. "Thank lieavcu, I can apjiear to have the liest of her," he said, spitefully. "But the next time I pro(iose to a woman I will not tell her that romance is out of the question." Then he wrote: Miss Dwiobt— I am an old mac, but I And I have made a mistake.

But one old (nntomimist still living solemnly attests that, so far as bis experience went, the bis muth not only left his faculties unimpaired, but had tbe merit of healing sores and crocks in tbe skin.—Gentleman's Magazine.
