A NEWSPAPER TRUST. A PROJECTED COMBINATION FOR NEW ENGLAND JOURNALS. A Proposed Combine With a Capital of 510,000,000 About to Be Formed to Con ' trol tho Business Interest! of tho Lead ing Papers of Now England. Tho Providence News is informed by •v authority that has always been con sidered reliablo that another big finan cial project is under Eerious considera tion by a number of capitalists of Now York, Philadelphia and Chicago to se cure control and to manage a number of properties in tho Now England states that are very valuable and profitable, but which tinder such a consideration as the one proposed will prove even more remunerative and influential by the re duction of the expense in operating, and by tho purchase of supplies in quantities so largo as to demand great reductions in the price of material used. For years it has boon recognized that a good paying newspaper is one of the most solid and stablo investments that money can bo put into, and the majority of tho newspapers of the country, too large to bo tho personal property of sin gle owners, have been managed by stock companies. This consolidation of newspapers un der one management is not a particular ly new idea. It has been very successful on a smaller scale in the west, where the Scripps league is widely known as a big syndicate, managing a dozen valuable newspaper plant's. It was ono of the dreams of tho elder Eennett which a number of years ago camo near to realization. Tho New York Herald and The Times.the Chicago Times, St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Boston Herald at one time came very near being controlled by a syndicate, with the elder Bennett at its head, but disagreements arose, and the negotiations came to Laught. The enormous earnings of big papers like tbe New York Herald, Sun and World, the Boston Herald and Globe aro the natural results of serious and inde fatigablo efforts extending over a series of years. It is popularly reported that the income of James Gordon Bennett of tbe New York Herald from his paper is $750,000 per annum. The World closely follows this with over $500,000, while The Sun probably makes half that amount. The Boston Herald is supposed to divido $300,000 a year between the owners, while Tho Globo pays at least 10 per cent net on $2,000,000. Tho proposed combine, however, deals with New England newspapers, and even this ia a dc:il of immeuso magnitude. The capitalists alluded to propose to purchase tho leading daily papers in New England, managing them of courso as individual papers and preserving their separate autonomies, yet controlling them by a directorate, to whom tho agent or manager in chargo of each paper shall report directly. It is esti mated that $10,000,000 in capital will bo required. The plan is to purchase these proper ties by issuing bonds fori $5,000,000, pre ferred stock of $5,000,009 and common stock of $5,000,000, the bonds and tho common stock to bo sold for the pur chase money, tho bonds to carry an 8 per cent guarantee, tho preferred stock to bo a 7 p3r cent stock, and tho common to declaro whatever dividend might bo left over after an allowance for v sink ing fund. At the present cost of operat ing the common stock could declare n 10 ]>er cent dividend and carry 5 per cent to the sinking fund. Tho cost of operating would be great ly reduced. Tako for example the Bos ton dailies or the) two big Sunday issues. Tho Herald and Globo each run trains out over the roads leading from Boston Sunday morning, seven trains each. One of them could be cut off and a joint train run, saving at least $30,000 per year. By purchasing paper in such immense quan tities tho very lowest possible price could be obtained, r.zid a very small fraction of a per cent saved would in the aggregate amount to an enormous figure, and as with paper so with type, presses, ink and all other materials. In the matter of distribution of papers in Boston alone an enormous saving would be made. By the control of all the newspaper properties in New England by ono con cern a new era in the collection of news would at once follow. A system of leased linos, with operators in the em ploy of tho combine, would bo inevitable. The New England Associated Press would either be merged in it or go to tbe wall, but this system of leased wires would bring a Eaviug of such propor tions as to bo absolutely oiartling and which is at present impossible by any ono paper. It is expected that expenses of operation would bo reduced fully 25 per cent. The plan is not a political one and has no political significance. Tbe combino is said to bo evenly divided between both the great political parties; otherwise this absorption of such papers would givo a political influence that would be so power ful that it could not be tolerated. Agents of the syndicate aro now in New Eng land making inquiries and investigations. Tho successful management of tho Stand ard Oil company, of tho big street car combines and other trusts seems likely to be followed by a newspaper trust. — Journalist. Bnnks In the.

EQUAL TO THE OCCASION. Bow a Bold Lover Won the Day and Also Won His Girl Front Her Father. He was a mild yonng fellow, and, as bis sweetheart imagined, without much force of character, as he kept putting the "ask papa" day off indefinitely. So the young woman prompted him to be sure he was right and go ahead. 'Yon see, pupa has a great deal of bluff end bluster, but when you como right down to It ho is perfectly safe. Only yon must show him that you have plenty of courage—real grit. That's what ho likes." "All right. Suppose you ask him to step in now. I may as well get my hand in if that is tho way it works." "Bnt, dearest, he is awful big and strong, you know." "Ob, if it comes to personal violence I will defend myself with the furniture. Trot him in." "And you won't let him put you off?" "Not a bit," "Then I'll tell him you want to see him." There were two chances of escape for tho young man—ono by way of tho door, tho other by the window —but he did not avail himself of either. When tho father strode into the room with his best knock-down-and-drag-out air, tho youth rose indifferently to meet him. "Well, well, what'o all this about? 1 understand you want to see mo. Well, look at me now and be quick about it," growled tho pater. "ITm. Can't say as you'ro much to look ut, Mr. . I merely wished to mention to you that Miss Clara has en gaged herself to mo with my consent, and I propose to fill my part of tho con tract to tho letter." "Idiot! Idiot! My daughter" "Take care, old man. Call me asmany names as you plcaeo, but refer to my fu ture wife with proper respect." "Get out of this house, you" "Certainly. As soon ao my wifo that is to bo can conveniently pack up her belongings we will go." "Why, you impudent" "Oh, keep cool; keep cool. I could bold you out of tho window with one band and call for the police with tho other. I waa champion hitter and slug ger nt college. Look at that muscle," and he clinched a, No. 7 hand into a for midable fist. "I never was so" "Nor I. Call it quits. I want your daughter, and I don't caro a continental for your inonoy or your blessing. Wo can begin the world without either, just as other young fools have done. Tbi3 is business, sir, business." The father felt bis own head to sco if he was going to bavo an apoplectic fit, then answered grimly: "All right; I like your style. I should have said 'yes' anyway if you had given me time, but you took me by surprise. I may say I was never so surprised in my life." "Nor I," assented tho lover as ho sunk almost fainting into a chair, "but I'm a j business man, and don't you forget it. I i don't stand any foolishness cither in love or war," and ho wiped tho cold perspiration off his forehead with :i nervous hand. Ho had won the day and tho girl too. I —Million.

(The Ht*ALDund>r this heading- prints com eiunlratlons, hut djes not ssaume respond bllity for the tenilmenta exr-reased ] The Heel Cause of So Haeh Surplus Labor. Editors Hbrald : In looking through the Herald this morning, I find nearly a column letter devoted to the interests of the tramp and workingman, in which the writer, instead of dealing with caneee. deals with effects, a mistake that is often made by humanitarians and reformers. It is all very nice to in augurate public works for the relief of the unemployed, but what wonld the re sult be? In 'addition to the thousands that are now landing at Castle Garden weekly, the steamship agents in Europe would be doubled, and instead of 5000 emigrants landing in the United States weekly tbe number would be doubled. You can draw your own conclusions. Selfishness,or self-preservation, is tho first law of nature. Tbe only thing to do is to stop this emigration, that it dees not add to the millions of onr un employed. It is tbe doty of Americans, native and foreign born, to see to this. Silver and tariff questions dwarf in comparison. Control the supply of labor and labor ing men can make any reasonable de mand upon capital. Bnt parties seem to have taken a greater hold npon the people than principles. How many office-holders are actuated by tbe good tbey can do rather than by ambition or personal gain ? The good of the people is a secondary consideration. Neither party dares to take any radical steps againßt foreign emigration except against tbe non-voting Chinese who do not do one-half the injury that the ignorant voter does. Yon remember what followed the prophecy of Rowan Helper in bis im pending crißie. He reasoned from causes. Macau lev's prophecy will also come true in relation to this country. Tbe 20th century is not so far away in the only part of which we will be com pelled to defend our institutions from the hordes of foreigners that will sweep down upon her as tbe Gothe and Huns did upon Rome. I wish, it these few words meet the public eye, that they may set them to thinking, until tbey shall bring out other thoughts from men used to pnblic work, Bnt I have little hope. The apathy of the common mind is so great, that as Patrick Henry said, "We are apt to shot our eyes to a painful truth" until we have to take up arms, which will, I fear, be our lot. American.

White, 19, and G. Camel, 16, were among tbe prisoners in tbe dock yesterday in Justice Austin's court. Tbey were found asleep in a box car, arrested and charged with vagrancy. Justice Austin is always unwilling to send lads who appear before him back into the etreefp, where they stand every chance of being re-arrested, and he thought for a few minutes before passing sentence. Eventually be discharged White and kept the two younger lads in order to have them rent, if possible, to Wbittier.

Walters pleaded not guilty to the charge of petty larceny yesterday and Justice Austin cot the trial for next week. Fred Baker, a professional beggar, was found guilty yesterday of soliciting alms, and was committed by Justice Austin to appear for sentence today.

THAT WAGON. The Plro Commissioners Go Bask on An Impilod Contract. A peculiar thing came nnder the ob servation of tbe city cooncilmen yes terday. About three months ago the council approved a contraot for the building of a wagota for the fire department. The contract waa made in favor of Robert Maloney, who signed it, after which it went through tbe council's hands. It was then sent to the mayor for final ap proval. Mr. Maloney constrncted the wagon and notified the fire commissioners of the fact, when it was discovered that the mayor had not signed the contract at all. An explanation was sought and it was found there was some difference of opinion as to the kind of wagon desired. It is understood tbe fire commissioners, or some of them at least, did not* want such a wagon, claiming that it had not tbe latest improvements. Now it is said that tbe fire commission will not accept the wagon on tbe ground that no contract existed, the mayor hav ing failed to approve it. Mr. Maloney made the wagon in good faith, thinking he bad his contract fin ally approved. The work cost foot). The legal side of the question is being looked into. Has Its Good Points. In somo villages in Japan rabbet's are tried and convicted by ballot. When ever a robbery is committed tho ruler of the hamlet summons the entire male population and requests them to write en a slip of paper the naino of the per son they suspect as having committed the crimo, Tho,ono receiving tho largest number of ballots is declared duly ' 'elected" and is accordingly hanged. This system, liko all others, has its peculiar advantages. It insures tho punishment of somebody for every robbery commit ted, whereas under the system in vogno in most civilized countries in nine cases out of ten no punishment is inflicted on anybody for the crimo. Of conrse they may not "elect" tho guilty person, but dispose of somo other character equally as bad. There is much in tho system to it to other nations.—Pomona (Cal.) Progress. An Emperor's Strange Fancy. Strange fancies have taken hold of some men regarding the manner in which their bodies wero to lie disposed of after death and the ceremonies to bo observed at their funerals. The great Emperor Charles V had the curious idea of celebrating his own fu neral. Shortly before his death he caused a tomb to bo made in tho chapel of the monastery of Estremadura, to which he had retired after his abdication, and on its completion he was carried to it as though dead. Placed in a coffin and ac companied by a procession, he was borno along, while chants were sung, prayers said and tears shed. After tho solemn farce waa over ho was left alone in tho chapel, whero he remained a short time before rising out of the coffin.—London Tit-Bits. Curling by Electricity, The electric curling iron is very sim ple. Tho wires conduct tho electricity into tho littlo stand into which the tongs are thrust. Tho latter aro made the proper temperaturo by heat, which is generated by tho resistance of the wires to the current. The stands .are about two inches high and aro usually nickel plated, although some of those manu factured by a firm in Berlin uro plated with gold and bavo hondsomo handles. In traveling tho iron and stands occupy only a very small space in a satchel. At tached to tho stand is a silk cord, which may be adjusted to an incandescent wire after screwing off tho littlo globe.—New York Telegram. Why Fisli Should Be Carol For. Migratory fish aro hatched and partly matured in fresh water. They feed and grow in the sea, but they are never caught there, so that their protection and preservation should be in the hands of those who are so deeply interested in making thorn a ealablo commodity.
