Stranger still, when a case is disputed in
any of the plays, the dramatist lays down the
law as it was in the Inst preceding reports of
the higher courts, even when that bad
changed tho previous law or the^popular con
•oeption of it. Thus the grave digger in
"Hamlet," though discoursing clumsily that
"Ophelia might be buried in consecrated
ground, lays down the law as it bad been
laid down in "Plowden's Reports" in the

tion were not so strong, the modern lawyer
would say that this passage was written by a
man in practice and "keeping up with the

well informed in botany, zoology and sucb
science as then existed.
MINOR INTERNAL EVIDENCES.
The foregoing are only the most salient
proofs but many more are cited. Thus the
•dramatist never refers to Stratford-on-Avon,
the home of the Shaxper or Shakspere fam
ily but there are twenty-three references to
•St. Albans, the home of Bacon. Warwick
shire is nowhere praised but Kent and other
•districts in the south are. The fauna and
flora of the plays are not those of War
wickshire neither is tho geography, the
nobility or the dialect. When "Shakspeare's"
•clowns talk dialect, the only 'Warwickshire
words are those common to that county and
the south of England. Neither the politics,
nor the religion, nor the social life of the
plays are those of Stratford-ou-Avon. By
=all reasonable supposition the Shaxperes
were democrats the dramatist is an aristo
•crat who only mentions the common people
to ridicule them. The dramatist lived
through the life and death struggle of
•Catholicism and Protestantism in England
yet it is impossible to decide which party he
favored, and both have claimed him. He
plainly ridiculed the pope's claim to
sovereignty in England but he rid
iculed the other party's extreme
•view just as keenly, and as soon as Queen
Elizabeth was dead he put forth a play in
•which her mother, Anne Boleyn, is merci
lessly dissected and held up to our contempt.
We have presented but a tithe of the
Baconians' evidences the Shakespearians
meet them with weighty facts. First and
probably strongest on their side is what
logicians call the universal testimony. All
the world believed from the start that Will
iam Shakspere was the author and how
•could all the world btf deceived? They add
to this the written testimony of three con
temporary writers. The Baconians easilv
dispone of two, one of whom attacks Shaks
pere as a pretender and the other only re
fers to him as a witty, easy writer but the
testimony of Ben Jonson is too direct and
«xplicit to be thus got over. He was very
intimate with Shakspere and for a time
acted as secretary to Bacon he outlived then'
4»th and received a pension from Charles I
lie survived to a time when the political di
visions of Elizabeth's, and James' courts were
obsolete, %nd as far as can now be seen, he
was perfectly free to tell what he knew. He
knew the universal attribution of the plays
to Shakspere and never contradicted it. If
he knew that Bacon was their author why
was he silent} if it was a fact and he did
not know it, how could he be deceived.' Mr.
Donnelly's answer is ingenious, and to many
will be conclusive but in our limited space
we cannot set it forth.
Mr. Donnelly'? cipher we do not as yet at
tempt to master. At first view it appears to
us very complicated but of the few who
have worked out sections of it, some insist
that it is conclusive. For explanation we
need in this place only,
use a familiar form.
Suppose that in some current writing we find
that the tenth word is "our," the twentieth
•"father," the thirtieth "who," the fortieth
"art," and thus on through the Lord's
prayer—we are compelled to conclude that it
is the result of design. Mr. Donnelly's
•cipher, however, proceeds on a far mora
•complicated plan. It is as if oneshould take
the fifth word, the tenth, the fiftieth, the
hundredth, the hundred and fiftieth, and
thus on to 1,500 then return through a
totally different series of figures, arrived at
by dividing, to the place of beginning, and
then proceed ou a new series of which the
separate increments were obtained by a fixed
system of division between the previously
obtained increments. Of course, tb»3 is not
Mr. Donnelly's system, but it gives some idea
of it, and those who maintain that it is the
true solution admit that many days' labor,
of tedious counting, are necessary to evolve
even one paragraph of the concealed story.
But when evolved, they insist, it gives the
inside history of Queen Elizabeth's reign and
shows, why the authorship had to be con

covered the cipher.
We give the names

words and the real
names in paren
theses. The Mar
1 we mentioned
was a contempo
rary and rival of
William Shakspero. Queeu Elizabeth is rep
resented as talking with Cecil,cousin of Bacon
but his enemy. Cecil says: "These plays are
put abroad at first upon the stage in the
name of more-low (Marlowe), a woebegone,
sullen fellow. He had engaged in a quarrel
with one Arch or (Archer) a servant, about
& wanton, ending in a bloody band to hand
fight, in which he was slain. Tho point of
his own sword struck against his head and
eye, making fearful wounds." Speaking of
Marlowe's blasphemy, he proceeds: "My
father would, in his wrath, have burned the
horson, rascally knave alive in the fire of
Smithfield for the sin he hath committed
against Heaven and the state." Speaking of
the treasonable purposes of the plays, he
says that, having heard that the Essex party
were representing the deposition and mur
der ot King Richard II on the stage and
cheering uproariously at every hit, he sent a
friend to ascertain the facts, who returned
with the statement that the reports were
traie. The following sentence is descrip
tive of the scene in the theatre on the
death of King Richard II: "But when
poor King Richard fell a corpse at
Pomfret under uncounted blows, they made
the most fearful noise. Again and again
it broke forth. It seemed as if they would
never stop. The play show# the
•victory of rebels over an anointed tyrant,
and by this pipe he hath blown the flame of
rebellion almost into open war. These well
(mown plays have even made the most holy
matters of religion, which all good men hold
in sincere respect, subjects for laughter, their
aim being, it is supposed, to thus poison the
mind of the discordant, wavering multitudes.
They mean in this covert way to make a ris
ing and flood this fair land with blood." In
another part of the cipher story it reads
thus: "Seas-ill (Cecil) said (bat More-low
(Marlowe)- or (Shakspere)
never writ a word of them. It is
plain be is stuffing our earswttb raise re
ports and lies this many a year. He is a poor,
ill-spirited, greedy creature and but a veil
for some one else. I have a suspicion that
my kinsman's servant, young Harry Percy,
was the man to whom he gave every night
the half of what be took through the day at
the gate. Many rumors are on the tongues
of men that my cousin hath prepared not
onjy the 'Contention Between Yorlf and
Lancaster,' and 'King John1 and this pla}
(Rich. 11), bnt other plays which .are pul
forth, at first under the name of More-low
(Marlowe) and now go abroad as prepared by
Shak'st-spurre (Shakspere)." Still another
represents a conversation between Cecil and
the Bishop of Worcester, and the bishop
says: "We know him (Shakspere) as a
butcher's rude aud vulgar prentice, and it
was in our opinions not likely that be writ
thein. He is neither witty nor learned
enough. The subjects are far beyond his
ability. It ir even thought here that your
cousin of St. Albans writes them."
The beating of Hayward is described in
another cipher paragraph. Hayward, it
seems, had been imprisoned for dedicating
his "Life of Llenry VII" to the Earl of Essex.
When brought before the queen to answer
for his ofi'ense, the cipher says "The sullen
old jade doth listen with the ugliest frown
upon her brows, too enraged to speak, but
rising up and starting forward, took Ha-word
(Hayward) by his throat aud choked him.
The old jade struck my poor young
friend a fearful blow with the steeled end of
the great crutch, again and again. His
limbs being so weakened by 'imprisonment
and grief, he is not able to stand the force of
the blows. The hinges of his joints give way
under him and he falls to the ground. Seas-ill
(Cecil) says to him, 'Speak out. Why did'st
thou put the name of my lord the earl upon
the title leaf of this volume?"' Hayward
thereupon foolishly proceeds to praise Essex
as a great.and good man. The queen threat
ens to have his ears cut off and concludes:
"Thy hateful looks and the whiteness of thy
face is apter than thy tongue to tell thy na
BACON'S SINGULAR TESTIMONY.
In Lord Bacon's admitted works is this
"In a matter which had some affinity with
my lord of Essex's course, which, though it
grew from me, went about in other men's
names, her majesty was highly incensed with
that book of the First Year of King Henrv
the Fourth—it was dedicated to my lord of
Essex—said she had a good opinion there
was treason in it, and asked me if I could not
find plans in it that could be drawn within
case of treason, whereto I answered: For
treason surely I found none, but for felony
very many. And when her majesty hastily
asked me wherein, I told her the author had
committed very apparent theft, for he had
taken most of the sentences of Cornelius
Tacitus and translated them into English and
put them into his text. Another time, when
the queen would not bo persuaded that it was
his writing whose name was to it, but that it
had some more mischievous author, and said
with great indignation that she would have
him racked to produce bis author, I replied:
Nay, madame, never rack bis person but
rack his stile let him have pens, ink and
paper, and help of books, and be enjoined to
continue the story where it leaves off, and I
will undertake by collecting the stiles to
judge whether he was the author or no."
Observe the sly humor with which Bacon
attempts to divert the queen by speaking of
plagiarism as felony. But Mr. Donnelly
finds confirmation of tho foregoing account
in the cipher story, one paragraph of which
"His men turn their backs, and my crafty
old friend Hence-low (Henslowe) flies at the
first appearance of danger, stumbling under
the heavy weight."
The first to question William Shakspere's
authorship was his rival and enemy, one
Greene but this was attributed to envy.
Alexander Smith, the essayist, made the ob
servation that "Bacon seems to have written
his esSays with Shakespeare's pen." Horace
Walpole classed tho authorship of the plays
among his "Historic Doubts." In 1S52 Mr.
Spedding printed a paier, ""Who Wrote
Shakespeare's Henry VIII?" Soon after
Chambers' (Edinburgh) Journal published an
anonymous paper entitled, "Who wrote
Shakespeare?' and the author arrived at the
conclusion that Shakspere "kept a poet." In
1S56 Miss Delia Bacon (the identify of name
with the Lord keeper's is only a coincidence) an
American lady, sister of Rev. Leonard Bacon,
first propounded the theory that Lord Bacon
was the Shakespeare wanted and from that
date it began to assume the dignity ot a
theory, and what was down to that time
only an insignificant literary heresy, its ad
herents having no rallying point, has since
grown to be the faith of a united and ag
gressive party, numbering tens of thousands,
among them many of the ablest critics and
scholars of the time. During the last thirty
years some 250 books and pamphlets have
been written upon tho subject Some four
years ago Mr. Donnelly announced to the
world that he had discovered a cipher story
interwoven in the plays which would end all
discussion. The proposition was one so
astonishing, hat its very statement almost
carried its own confutation. Even Bacon
ians stood aghast, as if in awe of the very
miracle they had invoked. The whole~dis
cussion had grown out of vhe fact that for
more than 200 years the production of
the plays by Shakespeare bad been
considered a literary miracle, and the dispo
sition of an incredulous age to eliminate it
and now, what wa? the result of all this
labor but a transposition and magnifying of
the miracle For what other is it than a
miracle if we add six cubits and a span to
the stature of Goliahror increase the
of Hercules by superadding Samson's or
augment the wisdom of Solomon with
that pf Socrates! For sorely he does
no less than these who doubles the in
tellectual stature of Francis Bacon, who,
from his known works, is adjudged by almost
all great critics to have been the greatest man
that ever lived—Shakespeare alone, if any,
•wtrfitaiy him in greatnew. If It should be
proved that Bacon should stand upon the
ihoulders of his only supposed compeer to be
measured for his niche in fame's temple
that, bisected, he was the greatest two men
that ever lived—have we not a miracle? No.
But we have more, for there be phenomena
that are greater than any miracle, and this
is one. If the pen that wrote the Essays,
the Advancement of Learning and the new
Organon, wrote, also, not only "Lear,"
"Hamlet," "Macbeth," "Othello" and "Ju
lius Cesar," but "Romeo and Juliet," "Mid
summer Night's Dream," "As You Like It,"
"Comedy of Errors," and others, then, in
deed, was it a magic pen, and he who wielded
it the composite of all humanity, with a
quantum of divine leaven superadded, such
as has never been vouchsafed to any other
For Shakspere, unlearned as be was, to
have "soundeid all the depths and shoals" of
learning, to have culled so much wealth from
the debris of dead languages with which he
was not familiar, was a miracle for Bacon
to have added the production of tho plays to
that of his other works, was a phenomenon
and is as much greater than the other as the
equipoise and rotation of the solar system is
greater than the floating of an axe bead or
the transformation of rods into serpents.
There are two facts worthy of note: Tho
turning from Shakspere is an expression
of the widespread unbelief in his ability tho
turning to Bacon is an expression of the gen
eral recognition of his transcendent genius.
If Shakspere did not write the plays, then
it must have been the man who "made all
knowledge his province." It is also worthy
of note that the greatest merit of the one's
charming poetry is its philosophj' and the
greatest charm of the other's meritorious
philosophy is its poetry. If tho authors were
not one, surely Shakspere borrowed Bacon's
sage and left his muse for surety.
It is natural that toe theory should be vig
orously combated so long as it is only a
theory, for it may be an injustice is being
done but if it can be demonstrated, it would
seem that all men should bail it with joy, for
it raises the standard of humanity to twicc
its supposed hight. It is a compliment to the
human race, to the planet on which we live,
and humanity should feel such a dilatation
of the soul as must, for a time, seem like in
"THE GREAT CRYPTOGRAM."
The full title of Mr. Donnelly's book is:
"The Great Cryptogram: Francis Bacon's
Cipher in the So Called Shakespeare Plays."
It is a magnificent imperial octavo volume
of 1,000 pages, and is divided into three parts
or books: Book I—The Argument. Book II—
The Demonstration. Book III—Conclusions.
Throughout it is written in an easy, enter
taining style, such as will hold the attention
of the reader. From a typographical stand
point the volume is a credit to the art pre
servative, being beautifully printed, with
engraved titles and numerous illustrations,
all of a very high order. The frontispiece is
a portrait on steel of Lord Bacon, from the
celebrated painting of Van Somer. The
work is published by R. S. Feale & Co.,
whose principal office is at 407-433 Dearborn
street, Chicago. The publishers announce
that the second edition will probably bo
issued in two volumes, as the original price
of the work was based on the supposition
that it would contain only 700 pages. "The
Great Cryptogram" is sold by subscription
only, and an army of agents will soon be in
the field. It will not be sold in the book
stores, but orders may be sent direct to the
publishers by those who have not had an Dp
portunity to subscribe.
ATTACK ON THE SUBSCRIPTION BOOK.
The intense feeling against Mr. Donnelly
and his book has manifested itself in almost
every form of opposition imaginable, from
the flippant charge of hallucination and
crankiness to the sober imputation of willful
and deliberate fraud. Not content with con
demning the book in advance, some have
gone so far as to find matter of criticism in
the method by which the book is published
and sold—that is, the subscription method,
as if that could affect the merit of the work.
Grant's, Blaine's and Logan's books *'ere all
sold in this way, and the more important of
Mark Twain's. By this method publishers
are warranted in undertaking what ivould
otherwise be too hazardous, and many books
are thus issued which could not otherwise $ee
the lights Some of the best editions of the
Shakespeare plays have been published in
this way, ana never could have been pub
lished in any other way. Not only this, but
thousands of people are thus induced co r-aud
who rarely see the inside of a library book
store, and'tlie cottage without a small :ollec
tion of choice books is now the exception.
Besides this an army of enterprising awn
and women Dud profitable employment, and
this book should certainly slier them field
for rich harvests, for no such literary sensa
tion has ever occurred.
A list of eminent men who have been nook
agents comprises many authors and states
men. The following is from The Philadel
"George Washington was a book agent,
and a good one. Prior to the fateful th ud
dock expedition he sold over 200 copies in
Fairfax and adjoining ounties in Virginia
of a work on 'The American Savage.' Jiy
Gould, Halph Waldo Emerson and Mark
Twain were in early life book canvassers. So
also was Longfellow, and his success was re
markable. There is now in the possession if
the Massachusetts Historical society a pros-
pectus the poet used, and on one of the blank
leaves are the skeleton lines of the celebrated
poem 'Excelsior,' which he was then evi
dently incubating. Daniel Webster paid his
second term's tuition at Dartmouth by sell
ing books. Gen. Grant at one time took an
agency for Irving's 'Columbus.' Bret Harts
was a book agent in California in 1849 and
'oO. Ex-President Hayes footed it all
over southern Ohio selling 'Baxter's
Lives of the Saints.' After the siege of
Toulon, Bonaparte, then a young lieutenant

to duplicate bis pay account, took the agency
for the 'History of the Revolution.' Bis

lives, boob agents. So also were Mme. de
Stael and Mru. Jameson, and Columbus can

I heard today upon the street,
Where beggars sang a careless song,
A note, a tone, so wondrous sweet
That I stood silent in the throng.
But, ah, I saw not those who sang
I heard not their wild madrigal
A thousand voices round me rang.
And sweeter still, one maiden's call,
For which I'd change the fame of men.
My load unloosed like Pilgrim's thrall
I fed my hungry heart again
I saw my boyhood home and all—
And heard the blackbirds, nestling, sing
Their tender songs of evening!
Clear, martial call of buried hosts!
How sure thy challenge passed the years!
I saw like sentries at their posts
A myriad forms: the pines like spears
Shot through the after-sunset's red
The darkening fields the gleam of panes
The murky dusk, star-panoplied
The lazy kine along the lanes
The school house dun the village spire
The home-bent,dusty harvest folks
The cornfields flamed with sunset fire
And in our tryst beneath the oaks.
We heard the blackbirds, nestling, sing
Their tender songs of evening!
Thus, Angel of our later days,
With ever-liovering, unseen hand
Are flashed upon our blinded ways.
The hidden shrines we understand.
We climb the rugged steeps of Truth,
And falter. Lo! thy helpings bring
The lesser to the larger Youth!
A note, a tone, the humblest thing,
Sweeps irresistless all between.
And there the Now prays with the Then
Where once our heaven was lived unseen.
And where, like pilgrims come again,
We hear the blackbirds, nestling, sing
Their tender songs of evening!

Hotel Clerks In New York.
It is exceedingly difficult for a hotel
clerk out of employment to secure a posi
tion in any of the leading hotels. There
are at least three clerks who have held po
sitions in the principal hotels who have
been out of employment for a year or
more. They have given up hope of se
curing employment here in any of the
leading hotels. Yet they ranked high
among their associates, and in every re
spect were first class men. But they say
that when a vacancy occurs in any of the
hotels the position is given to a man from
some other city. A clerk from Phila
delphia, Boston or Chicago is preferred.
More people come here from those cities
than from any others. A clerk from
Philadelphia, for instance, it is expected
will influence a large number of people
from the Quaker City to stop at the hotel
which employs him, whereas a New York
clerk will not possess such an influepce.

immense merriment, which increased
when Mr. Dickens added: "By a still

have reason to believe the character of
Mr. Pickwick was taken, and I verily be
