DAYS OF MERRIMENT.
"KING REX," THE JOLI.Y MONARCH OF THE MARDI GRAS. Difference* lletween Carnival Observances In Europe anil America—History of the DUpluyi I» New, Orleans—Preparations For TliU Year's sViow. HEY are making great prepara tions for the Mur di Gras festivities at New Orleans this year, and they say that the display of 1894 will bo finer than has ever been hitherto attempt ed. Mardi Grats falls on Feb. 5 this time, and already many strangers have spoken for places at the hotels. Mardi Gras is observed in Mobile and Galveston as well as at New Orleans, but nowhere else in America has it ob tained much foothold. The Mardi Gras of these cities is an American modi fication of the carnival of the cities of southern Europe. On both sides of the Atlantic the festivities held just before the beginning of the Lenten season serve as a sort of goodby to good times till aft er Easter. Indeed the very word "car nival" (carni-vale) is supposed to signify "farewell to ilesh" and was applied to these festivities because no good church man in ay eat meat during Lent. In all the carnival cities, whether on the banks of the Tiber, tho Seine or the Mississippi, one of the chief features of the period is light hearted gayety. But there are great I differences between the carnival observ ances of the old and the new worlds. In Europe the fun is more sponta neous—more extemporaneous, so to speak—and entered into more for its own sake than in America. There are ex cesses there unheard of here, and there is also far less of systematized and im posing display. This latter feature of the carnival in New Orleans dates back only to 18ij7 and is doubtless the result of engrafting upon the Latin idea of harlequin frivol ity the American bent for organization. In the old daj*s, when the Creole element was supreme in the Crescent City, the last few days before the beginning of Lent were celebrated by promiscuous maskers upon the public streets, and there was much rude fun of a sort some what similar to that which characterizes the same period abroad. The organization of parades was at tempted several years before it was ac complished, but the first appearance of the Mystic Krewe did not occur until the evening of Feb. 24, four years before the beginning of the civil war. The first pa rade was a satisfying success. The char acters in the procession, which was held in the evening, represented the denizens of the infernal regions as depicted in Milton's "Paradise Lost," and the unique display was followed by a brilliant ball at the Varieties theater. From this time until the war storm broke over the land the Mystic Krewe paraded yearly, with annually augmented splendor, but after 1861 it was suspended until 1866, when the festivities were revived and have been repeated every year since, save when interrupted by pestilence or political up heaval. The Mj'stic Krewe, however, disappeared in 1884 and was not seen again for five or six years. The first day parade took place in 1872, when "Rex, king of the carnival," as sumed regal power over the city for 24 hoars. His sham sovereignty was ex tended over all classes, including even "the strangers within the gates." This new departure was a success from the start, so much so indeed that the reign of Rex was shortly extended to cover two days, on the first of which his maj esty arrives, and on the second of which the Mardi Gras parade proper is held. In 1872 and the year following the "Knights of Momus" appeared on New Year's eve, but in 1876 this organization became a feature of the carnival itself. In 1878 the "Phunny Phorty Phellows" added themselves to the parades, in 18S2 the "Krewe of Proteus" appeared, and every year since then these divisions have increased their gorgeousness or new ones have been added until it is THE REX PROCESSION. •afe to say that in these last years of the century the Mardi Gras of New Orleans affords the most imposing and showy Annual spectacle that is to be seen in America. A most praiseworthy circumstance con nected with theae parades is the fact that »o advertising features are allowed. In most northern parades the artistic and fantastic floats are followed by a long line of floats furnished by leading busi ness houses, which vie with each other in the attractive advertisement of their wares. It is undoubtedly true tliat the rigid exclusion of this featnre from the Mawli Gras displays lias had much to do with the general success of the exhibi tions. Another thing which hus con tributed to the success of the spectacles from year to venr is the effort made to present Komotuin^ novel in each succeed ing parade. The first ir, as has been stated, the subjects were dvawn from Milton's "Paradise Lost." Some of the features since then have been "The Feast of Epicurus," "Lalla, Rookh," "The Five Senses." "Tho History of Louisiana," Spenser's "FameQueen," Homer's "Tale of Troy," "The Myths of China," "Hin doo Mythology," "Realm of Flowers," "Legends of the Middle Ages." "Treas urer of the Earth," "Tho Culprit Fay." Although the Mardi Gras proper lasts only two days, tho city is in holiday at tire, and its citizens are in holiday mood for quite a week. The weather in New Orleans in February is almost always do lightful, being about the same as April weather in New York or Cincinnati. The blue skie and the warm snnshine, and the picturesque peculiarities of the south ern city are of themselves great attrac tions to visitors from more northern lati tudes, and the old town begins to fill with visitors some days before the actual date of the giving over of the place to the reign of Rex. Those who arrive late have in recent years been obliged to get along with such accommodations as they can get, and the hotels and lodging houses are invariably crowded. The streets are gayly decorated with bunt ing and greenery and brilliantly illumi nated at night. The peoplo are attired in their best, and their best is bright with colors, so that the scene is gay be yond the descriptive power of the pen or the artist in black and white. Tho appearance of Rex on tho day preceding the parade has come to be al most as much of an event as the grand day parade itself. Sometimes the carni val king and his queen arrive by rail and sometimes by ship, but in either event they are received with all the pomp and circumstance that should accompany the welcoming of conquering royalty. It is understood that the real personality of the royal personages shall be unknown of the multitude, but of late years this knowledge has generally leaked or been given out, and all the world knew two or three years ago that the queen was Miss Nita Shakespeare, daughter of the mayor then incumbent. Before the do ings were over on Mardi Gras night tho king was known to be S. P. Walmsley. Thus it will be seen that, although it is because of the Creole influence that the Mardi Gras is held, the Anglo-Saxon ele ment has gained control of the carnival. The parade of Rex begins at as nearly 11a. m. as possible, and it is to the credit of NewOrleans and those who control the L, •Jw'k mil I PASSING THE CLAY STATUE. Mardi Gras that the start is usually on time. Early in the morning citizens and strangers begin to occupy advantageous I points of observation along the streets,and by lOo'clockthethoroughfaresarecrowd ed. The blare of trumpets and the beating of drums announce the coming of royalty and his train, the parade being headed by the King's Own Royal guards, fol lowed by a stately car containing the boeuf gras or prize ox. Following thiscar come the gorgeous floats representing the historical or mythological scenes chosen, the car on which sit enthroned in splendor the rul ing monarch and his consort, and last of all the miscellaneous maskers. These last are a motley crowd, some got up elegantly and tastefully, some attired in rather shabby costumes and dingy tin sel, but all fantastic and mirth provok ing to the throngs of native and visiting sightseers, who are all of course in the mood to be amused. This parade lasts from three to four hours, and when it has passed the streets empty them selves as if by magic, for the crowds must hasten home to eat and prepare for the glories of the night. It is in the evening that the "Krewe of I Comus" and the "Knights of Prot eus" and I sometimes other organizations enliven the streets. The parade of these bodies & shorter thau the day parade, and for that reason perhaps the crowds along the route appear denser. The brilliance of illumination on the floats, on many pub lic and private edifices and in the form of torchlight processions is added to the general ensemble, but the miscellaneous maskers are absent because of police reg ulations, enforced in order to protect the unwary from persons mischievously in clined, who if disguised would be aided in their malevolent designs. This prohibition as to masks does not extend to those who are bidden to one or more of the fancy entertainments which wind up the day's festivities and are in manj' respects the most splendid of the observances. There have been two or three of these of late years, first iu im portance being the ball and reception of Rex himself, held in the Carnival palace, next the tableaux and ball of Comus at the Grand Opera House, and third the tableaux and ball of Proteus at the French Opera House. Besides these, which may perhaps be termed official, there are dances in various other halls in the city, which is literally given over to mirth and merriment and the mazes of the waltz. Though the Mardi Gras festivities of New Orleaus are increasing in impor tance every year, the tendency is con stantly toward organized display and not to individual license, and the throw ing of "confetti" and flowers, the racing of riderless horses through the streets and the night masking of all who will, so important features in European cit ies, are not in evidence. The Mardi Gras observances of Mobile and Galves ton are also attracting more attention yearly, and there is no one who does not applaud the spirit of joyousness which these festivities indicate. 1. D. MARSHALL. JUSTICES IMl'ATIKN'T. The Delay In (Vetting Another Supreme Judge In llecoinini Annoying WASHINGTON, Jan. 215.—While the personal feature of the vacancy in the supreme court interests the politicians most, it does not approach in import ance the material interests affected by delay. Questions of constitutional law, upon the decision of which hang great property interests, are being held in abeyance until a full bench can pass upon them, and naturally the litigants rre impatient under the fo-ced waiting, which has been protracted beyond their expectations by the long debate of the senate committee over the Hornblower nomination, and its final rejection, which necessitates the selection of anew candidate. There are now 22 cases on the docket of the supreme court, some of which have been side-tracked since the begin ning of the October term, awaiting tho advent to the bench of a successor to Justice Blatchford. The list includes the most important cases of the term, in which the hearings have been deferred at the suggestion of the court, or the re quest of Attorneys for their judgment by a full bench. Most of them hinge upon interpretations of constitutional law on which it is essential that the opinions of every justice should bo re corded. Railroad interests and the in terstate commerce laws play at import ant part. Interesting questions pertaining to railroad land grants are involved in suits between tho Northern Pacific Rail road company and Montana authorities, appealed from the United States circuit court of Montana, and one brought by the railroad company against the auditor of Kidder county, North Dakota. Ex Attorney General Garland is an at torney for the railroad in these cases, while another, brought by Richard P. Barden of Montana against the North ern Pacific, William Wallace, Jr., the son-in-law of Chief Justice Fuller, Gov ernor Toole and Mr. Garland are enlisted. The interstate commerce com mission has a suit against W. P. Brin son from the Northern district of Illi nois, which will be pushed by Attorney General Olney and ex-Senator Edmunds of Vermont. The distribution of funds of "The Late corporation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints," better known as the Mormon church, which are in the hands of the government, awaits the decision of the supreme court upon the legality of the proceed ings. Several others in which individ uals are the litigants, are on the wait ing list. Because of these cases the justices of the supreme court brought their influ ence to bear on the senate to hasten the confirmation of Mr. Hornblower, and they are most anxious to see tho vacancy in their tribunal filled. CHAIRS THE WEAPONS. Celettial Highbinders Kngage iu a Deadly fight iu a Sunday School. DENVER,Colo., Jan. 23.—Two Chinese highbinders engaged in a fight while attending Sunday school at Trinity M. E. church, and as a result one will die and another is badly wounded. There has been a deadly enmity between Yen Fong and Charley Hong for over two years, and when they met for the first time since the former dafeated Hong for the position of interpreter for the school, their wrath could be no longer contained and the battle opened with chairs as the weapons. The lady teachers lied in terror, and had it not been for prompt interference of the gentlemen present, probably two or three Celestials would have been killed. TAX TRANSIENT MERCHANTS. Ontikosh Charge* "Hankrupt Stores" 93 Day License. OSHKOSH, Wis., Jan. 23.—Some time since the city council passed an ordi nance imposing a tax of $." a day on all transient merchants and peddlers who did business in the city. Early last week some Milwaukee parties moved a stock of what purported to be bankrupt goods into a vacant store in this city, and for two or three days succeeded in doing a land office business. The other dry goods merchants complained and the city officials attempted to collect the special tax. The manager of the store retained an attorney and at first seemed disposed to litigate the matter, but finally paid the tax under protest. lluihlers Get llig llonus. NEW LONDON, Conn., Jan. 23.—The navy board has finished its work and announced the lime of the new cruiser Montgomery in her speed trial last Fri day. The speed awarded is 19.050 knots, and brings her builders a bonus of |200,000. The contract was for 17 knots and fx'5,000 for each quarter knot in excess of that speed. To Send Negroes to Africa. ST. LOUIS, Jan. 23.—A special to The Republic from Birmingham, Ala., says: The International Migration society has been incorporated here under the laws of Alabama, with a capital stock of $100,000 by J. L. Daniel and associates. The company proposes to send negroes from the Southern states to Africa. iiootf Aiibjeot or -Moos®. DENVER, Colo., Jan. 23.—During a drunken row,Thomas Holmes Todd shot Antonio Vindett twice in the head, caus ing a fatal wound. Todd was one of the Blue Cut, Mo., train robbers, and by jumping his bond escaped to Ogden, U. T., wherein 1890, he killed.the notorious Patrick Desmond. For this he bad been sentenced to the penitentiary four years, and had been at liberty only two months when he shot his second victim. SUGAR SCHEDULE. As I'retfided, Its Consideration Caused a Jlig- Fijflit in the House of Ileiirosontiitives. The Four AIII.-IHIIIICIIIS to (he Wilson Schedule Introduced as Proposed. Another Sharp Tilt Between Boutcllc and the Speaker—The Mace Brought Out. WASHINGTON, Jan. a3.—The fight to amend tne sugar schedule of the Wilson bill was made in the house. It opened immediately after the reading of the journal, according to the agreement reached last Friday, by which three hours were set aside for this purpose. Before the first amendment waB offered, some discussion wi had as to whether the amendments should lie to each of the three sections of the Wilson bill Bchedule separately, the county provis ison, the duty of live-twentieth of a cent on refined sugar above No. 16, Dutch standard, and the duty of 30 per cent on sugar candy and confectionery, and of 13 per cent on grape sugar. Pending an agreement as to tho mode of proceedure, Mr. Hitt withdrew the amendment, pending last Saturday, with reference to reciprocity with Canada on free coal. Then, after further consultation, the sugar men, represented by Mr. Blanch ard, withdrew their first proposition and asked that time be divided into three parts an hour for those in favor of the bounty provision, one for those in favor of the bounty provision of the McKinley law, and an hour for those w! fnvor a duty on sugar. Mr. McRae oljecuu, because this arrangement gave no time to those who were for free sugar and no bounty. It was finally agreed, however, that tho Louisiana members, who were most interested, should have an hour, and the remainder of the house should take chances of recognition of the chair during the other two hours. The first amendment was that offered by Mr. McRae (Dem., Ark.) to abolish entirely the sugar bounty. In support of his amendment Mr. McRae said that it proposed to abolish entirely the sugar bounty and leave sugar on the free list, where it was placed by the McKinley law. A time when the treasury was bankrupt and the secretary of the treasury was proposing to borrow money at 5 per cent interest was no time to pay a special bounty to any in terests. He had no personal feeling against the section of the country to be affected, but he did not conceive that a Democratic congress would perpetuate this, the most vicious provision of the McKinley bill. The bounty would cost the country, said Mr. McRae, as it stood, $50,000,000. The bounty last year cost $10,000,000. He contended that the bounty was un constitutional and undemocratic, anil sboAld bo abolished. Mr. Meiklejohn offered as an amendment to that of Mr. McRae. the sugar bounty provision of the McKinley law. The bounty pro vision of the McKinley law, he said, had been passed to afford an opportunity for American capital. The purpose of that act had been fulfilled. It had resulted in a vast investment of capital—$150,000 000 in Louisiana, $15,000,000 in Cali fornia, and $10,000,000 in Florida. If the provision of the Wilson bill were passed this great industry would be destroyed, and we would be placed at the mercy of foreign producers of sugar, at the same time giving to the sugar trust a protection of 50 per cent., or one quarter of one cent on every pound of refined sugar. Mr. Dockery (Dem., Mo.) offered as a substitute for amendments, a proposi tion to abolish the bounty on sugar, and place the raw and refined sugar on the free list. If there was anything, said Mr. Dock ery, of which he thought the Democratic party wanted unity, it was opposition to this bounty. The beet, sorghum and maple sugar bounties were petty lar ceny, while the bounty on cane sugar rose to tho dignity of grand larceny. Mr. Boatner (Dem., La.) wanted to know why Mr. Dockery did not strike down all duty and all protection on cutton and woollen goods, and all other articles, and place them on the free list. The latter replied that all reforms could not be accomplished in a day. The farmers who followed the plow did not demand a bounty on wheat or com. All they wanted was an equal chance in the race of life. Mr. Cannon (Rep., Ills.) supported Mr. Meikeljolin's amendment. The free sugar clause of the McKinley law had saved the people of the country, rich and poor alike, annually from $1 to fl .24 per capita. HKOl-GllT OUT THE MACE. Sir. Uoutelle Refused to Obey the Orders of the Speaker. After the reading of the Hawaiian corrrepondence in the house, Mr. Bou telle rose and demanded recognition on a point of order. He charged that it was apparent from the three successive messages sent to the house that the gov ernment was engaged in fomenting in surrection in a country with which the Unired States was at peace. He de sired to call up his privileged resolution. Pot words between Mr. Boutelle and the •peaker followed. Mr. Hatch asked that I ton Mr. Boutelle's words be taken down died suddenly of and Mr. Boutelle was ordered to take l*"ka. his seat. He refused to do so and the sergeant-at-ar ms with the silver mace was called to support the speaker's au thority. Great excitement followed. The rule was road and then the sjieaker recognized a nutiou to resume the consideration of the tariff bill. Ou a division, Mr. Boutelle made the point of no quorum. 1'liu Republic..us reiubud to vote ou 13 utelle's uoiut ol no quorum. Tellers were appointed and it looked as though no quo. um could fou'Ml and that the tariff debate would be suspended. Com mittee rooms and restaurants and lob bies wero called on for members and ibe house was finally able to go ahead with a bare quorum. Dockery withdrew his amendment and Harter of Ohio ottered a substitute to abolish the bounty and impose a duty of 1 cent a pound. Gear, the newly elected Iowa senator, •poke in favor of an amendment to make the reduction of the bounty begin in 1893 instead of 1895. Bryan of Ne braska spoke for the committee bounty. The Senate. WASHINGTON, Jan. 23.—While peti tions were being presented in the senate Senator Sherman took occasion to refer to the flag incident which recently stirred up Ohio people, and said that he hoped the flags woild be kept flying over the Capitol all the time, as well as when congress and the supreme court was in session. A bill to codify and arrange in order all the pension laws was presented by Senator Palmer of Illinois. MOKE CORRESPONDENCE. Additional Information Given to Congress by the I'resdeut. WASHINGTON, Jan. 23.—The president has transmitted to the house some additional Hawaiian dispatches from Minister Willis. The retirement of Vice President Hatch is announced, and tho election of W. C. Wilder to succeed. The executive council, the correspond ence says,has been increased from for#'to five persons, a minister of foreign affairs being added. Tho president has hereto fore discharged the duties of that office A petition and memorial addressed to President Cleveland from the Hawaiian Patriotic league, claiming to represent 8,000 legal voters, is enclosed by Minis ter Willis without comment. The memorial alleges a conspiracy of Minis ter Stevens and the men in the present provisional government, and deny that the present provisional government rep ersents the people of Hawaii. Specifica tions are made of alleged inclemency in the provisional government. ANOTHER SMI1» CAN" A L. Discovery of a Koute ly Which One Could lie ISllilt For IS I S,OOO,OOO. CHICAGO. Jan. 2:J.—A special to The Herald from Tacoma, Wash., says: J. A. Karweise, a Kentucky civil engineer, has come here from the United States of Colombia on business connected with the new state capitol, and brings with him charts and drawings and estimates of construction of an ocean level ship canal, which, owing to heretofore un discovered natural formations and fis sures in the backbone of the Cordilleras, found by him, can be built for $Si?,000,000 less than the Nicaragua canal, and can be completed in three years from the date of beginning work for §48,000,000. At the point where Mr. Karweise claims to have made his discovery the Atlantic and Pacific ocean tides approach within 18 miles of each other. This, iu con nection with the new fissure discoveries in the Cordilleras, results from the lagoons and marshes of the Gulf of Darien on the Atlantic side and the San Miguel bay on the other. Mr. Karweise favors the joint building by all nations of a double track ship canal at the point of his dis covery and the setting aside of a neutral zone. The location of the double-track ocean level ship canal route is directly south of the eastern isthmus bend, and actually in the northwestern corner of the South American continent. The dis tance between the points where the ocean tide ends is IS !i-S miles, and the total length of the combined canal works, inclusive of the 11.800 feet tunnel length, is eight and five-eights miles. TEX I'EU CENT SEDUCTION. Des Moines Miners Willing to A cept That Much of a Cut. DES MOINES, Jan. 23.— At a mass meeting of the miners of this district, at which 1,500 miners were represented, it was decided not to accept the 25 per cent reduction demanded by the opera tors.
