London, Dec. 4.—The Pall Mall Ga
cstte, commenting on President Cleve
land's annual message to congress, aaya
tbia ofterneon:
"President Cleveland reiterates bia
faith in free trade, but we do not ex
pect to get anything more out of the
tariff oontroveiay. That chance is lost
until tbe Democrata return to power
with a little sense in their beads.
America is going to bid for the suprem
acy of tbe seas, While we do uot fesr
the contest, this policy will in time
aerioustv effect our carrying trade."
The Globe says: "There is pm touch
of spread-eagleism in the message or j
the slightest desire to twist John Bull's
nose. On the contrary, President Cleve
land has the ccurage to display a
friendly attitude to Great Britain on
certain questions, which, if roughly
handled, wonld easily provoke inter
national umbrage. We advisedly call
his language courageous, for bis oarefoi
avoidance of tbe other sort of talk is cer
tain to provoke the wrath of the Irish-
Americans. As in foreign affaire, so in
domestic affairs, there is ample proof
that be has the courage of his convic

London, I>sc. 4. —The detectives of
Scotland Yard are busily at work ferret
ng out tbe bottom faots in a sensational
murder mystery which involves, in*
directly, a number of the most arlsto*
cratic families of England. On Novem
» ber 2Gth lest, tbe Associated Press an
nounced exclusively that a mysterious
murder had been committed in Ken
sington, a populous western suburb of
The body of a comely, well dressed
young woman, named Dawes, about 30
years old, belonging to tbe unfortunate
class, was found in a much treqnanted
thoroughfare on Holland Villus road,
Kensington. A hasty examination of
the body showed that her throat had
been cat from ear to ear. Tbe police at
first were completely at fault, aud some
of the London newspapers raised the old
j cry ot "Jack the Kipper," although
there was little or no ground for so do
ing. Suspicion centered npon a
young man of excellent family
named Reginald Llewellyn Bassett
Saunderson, a nephew of the famoua
Col. E. J. Saunderson, tbe Orange leader
and member of parliament for North
Armagh, a magistrate and a deputy
lieutenant and the son of Llewellyn
Traberue Bassett saunderson, esq., a
justice of tbe peace of Dublin oounty,
Ireland, wbo married Lady Rachael
Mary Scott, third sister of tbe Earl of
Clonmel. One of Reginald Saunderson's
aunts is Lady Edith Caroline Monok,
wife of the lion. Henry Power Charles
Stanley Monck, oldest son of tbe fourth
Viscount Monok. Another of his aunts
is Lady Maria Henrietta Fitzolarenee,
whose husband is the brother of tbe
Earl of Monster and a grandson ol
William IV.
The young man, it appears, it only 21
years old, tall and handsome, a most
pleasant conversationalist and an expert
at football, rowing and swimming, But
young Saundsrson was far from being
strong-minded. He was sent to a school
for tbe protection and education of
gentlemen of weak intellect, at Hamp
tonwick. Saunderson, according to the
police, left that institution Novembsr
26th, saying he intended to attend divine
service at a local ohnrcb. Bat be was
n->t heard of again until he appeared at
; tbe bouse of relatives at Belfast, some
; time after the mnrder.
The theory of the police is that Saun
derson, after leaving Hsmptoawick,
came to London and met the Dawes
! woman. The evidence which directly
connects Saunderson with the murder
iis the fact tbat by tbe dead woman's
I side tbe police found a knife and a
cherry wood stick, which were subse
quently identified by tbe pupils of tbe
institution at Hamptonwick as having
belonged to Saunderson. Tbe police
were soon in possession of tbe following
I For months past ths English news
papers bave been devoting much space
to the trial of a man named James Can*
bam Read, hanged thie morning, a
married man at one time employed as a
clerk at the London docks, who was
charged witb the murder at Southend,
i England, on June 24, last, ol a young
• woman, Florence Dennis, with whom be
had been on intubate terms. Saunder
son, it seems, was deeply impressed by
tbe accounts of tbe trial which be read
in the newspapers. He wonld eagerly
peruse everything on the subject and
seemed to brood over the case.
The police, it seems, first got on the
track of Saunderson in Belfast and took
j him into custody. But while ths pris
; over was being conveyed to Dublin en
: route to London he escaped, bnt wae re
; captured yesterday at Killeshandre,
i near Armagh,
| There are several points in the story
iof the Kensington mnrder mystery
whiob are yet unexplained. Was the
unfortunate woman wbo met her death
in tbe Holland Villas road a cbanoe ac
quaintance of Sanoderson or had ha
known ber for some time?
The general opinion seems to be that
she was an accidental acquaintance
with whom the prisoner met after his
arrival in London, and his mind having
become completely unhinged from
brooding over the details ol the South
end murder, be felt impelled to kill the
woman aod so cut her throat and tied,
leaving the knife and walking stick
Saunderson arrived four or five daya
ago at Nabilla, the residence of Mrs.
Kate Jones, a widow, two miles from
Castle Saunderson, the residedce of
Colonel Saunderson. It was remarked
he had a very scanty outfit. He looked
ill and was very reserved.
The master of the scVool at Hampton
wick states that in view of Saunderson's
probable going to Canada to start farm
ing, be was allowed to take part in the
gardening at the echool, and the knife
found by the side of the murdered wo
man was one he had ussd for pruning
It has transpired that one ol the
places visited by Saunderson was
: Moncktown. While tbere be wrote an

was not instantly fatal and he most
have beaten her lace with the butt of a

back to town and fled. The motive il
thought to have been robbery.

They Fascinate Now More Than the Type
writer Once Did.
The manicuro operator is fast taking
the place once held solely by the pretty
typewriter—that is to say, it is a part
of her business to have a gift for flirt
ing, for sly glanoee, for sighs anri gig
gles at unfunny jokes and stories, hers
not to question why, or to have any
thing to say, but simply to listen and to
applaud with ber smiles. Upon her gen
eral good nature and her responsiveness
depends the size of tbe tip whioh she re
ceives, for these magnificent creatures
do take tips, and tbe number of invita
tions to the theater and to dinner which
she gets in a week is legion.
The fact is, she works for this kind
of favor far more earnestly tban for a
legitimate success. The small salaries
paid in this business are proverbial, but
the opportunities are numberless, and
the young women who take it up are
generally good looking, well dressed
and have a superficial kind of style pick
ed up from the swell deniimondaines
who frequent tho manicures religiously
once a week. I havo seen a number of
innocent looking, pretty girls, new to
the business, develop into gorgeously ap
pareled croatures with blackened eye
brows aud chemical hair. Then they
graduate from the profession, aud no
vitiates tako their places. They havo
learned tho lesson.
' 'Do you have very much fun in this
business?" I asked a happy looking girl
as she "treated" my nails tho other day.
"Fun? Well, I should say so, "sho
replied enthusiastically. "I am going
out to dinner tonight with Mr. ,
president of the company. I tell.
you, he's the best friend we have. Ho
takes onoiof us out every evening, and
he's a perfect gentleman. Married? Oh,
yes; his wife comes here, a lovely wo
man I He likes Miss A best, though.
She's snch a popular girl! On Saturday
afternoons ehe always hae a line of gen
tlemen waiting their turn. She really
has more invitations than she can ac
cept. Sho's so popnlarl Misa B is
going on the t tage this winter, you
know. She's bad a magnificent offer
from Managor G of the 'Bar of
Soap' company!"
Though the hours of tho manicure
girl are long aud the salaries small, is
it any wonder tbat there is always a
waiting list of applicants for the vacan
cies whioh sometimes occur?— New

ran and tbe man on the woodpile got oti
and threw the robber bose in a rain bar

mock trial comes off December 14tb.
This was done for the benefit oi the stu

Th* Capitalistic Delnslon.
Editor Hirai.d : — With confidence
■nd valor born oi an imperfect under
standing of the thing he assails, a gen
tleman in a voluminous and redundant
communication published in your edi
tion ol tbe -tith ioat., attempts to mount
tbe ramparts of tbe single tap Gibraltar.
Separating tbe few kernels of argument
from tbe several bales of siraw in wbicb
tbey are imbedded, we find tbe plea pre
sented that monopoly and combinations
are traceable to aggregations of capital
and free competition, and not to special
privileges, as single taxers believe. This
is only another case of ascribing the
wrong oaose to certain efi'ectß. The con
fusion in diagnosis comes of tbe gentle
man's misconception ot monopoly,
capital and free competition. It
is true tbat under prevailing con
ditions aggregated capital aids in tbe
procurement and holding of monopolies,
bnt this is because of the conditions and
not of tbe capital. Special privileges
granted or tolerated by the state is tbe
sole canse of monopoly, and the condi
tion of tbe present is most distinctly one
of spsoial privileges. Tbe greatest of all
monopoly is land monopoly, the seques
tration by the few of tbe natural re
sources intended for tbe equal use of all,
and this exists because of the special
privilege of private ownership in land.
Upon this monopoly all other monopo
lies depend. In fact it can be said that
in tbe full sense of the term it is tbe
only monopoly, and the others that we
designate as such are only parts. There
is no facility or commodity tbat serves
the purposes or satisfies tbe wants of
humanity thst is not the product of la
bor applied to land, tbe latter ie tbe only
source of wealth, and the creations of
brain and brawn can be multiplied in
definitely if man be given unrestricted
aocess to nature's storehouse, ns he
wonld he under the single tax. There
is but one thing really capable of being
permanently and successfully monopo
lized, and tbat is tbe earth. It can not
be reproduced; no substitute can be
fonnd for it, and we can not dispense
with it (until we establish competing
transportation lineß with aome other
planet). And wherever the attributes
of monopoly may manifest themselves,
it will be found in the final analysis
tbat tbey are rooted iv land monopoly.
No better illustration of this is needed
tban the instance cited by your corres
poendent to prove his points, i. c., the
Standard Oil combine. There, be
triumphantly proclaims is a mo
nopoly tbat has been neither
helped nor hindered by the
government, yet it is tbe greatest of
all. Well, what is tbe basis of the
Standard oil monopoly? Aggregated
capital? Not at all. Ita capital is only
a facility—an instrumentality. It haa
no monopoly of oapital; there ia plenty
outaide ot ita coffers. The basis is land
monopoly. Uis tbe private ownership
and control by itself and partners of oil
bearing parts of tbe earth that renders
possible the exercise by it ol monopo
lie tic pcwere. Capital is not to be
dreaded, but to be ardently desired.
Capital ia the produot of labor. It rep
resents indnslry, ingenuity and thrift.
It means houses, tools, implements and
all tbe commodities and contrivances
that satisfy tbe necessities and cater to
tbe desires of the people. It stands for
things nsed in the production of more
things, and its multiplication results (or
would uner single tax conditions) in the
cheapening of what people want
and consequently in the lightening
of life's tasks. It ia wealth
tbat can only be monopolized after ita
production is limited, and this can only
occur when tbe source from which it ie
drawn ia owned by the few. Private
ownership of tbe earth makes the pro
duction of wealth dependent upon tbe
whims, tbe wisdom or tbe greed of the,
alleged owner and it alone is responsible
, ior any monopoly of wealth or capital tbat
IMJ exist Or aav undue dower that tha
possessors of capital loam to wield, it
la cot the ownership of the pi pea, pump*
•nd facilities for storing weter that *
water company poaaeiaee, or the owner*
ship by a railroad company of the reill
and rolling stock that makes either of
these institutions dangerous and mon
opolistic, but the franchisee they bold,
the ownership oi the water supply in the
one instance and the right of way in tbe
otber. Many a man haa become a land
or water monopolist with no other oapi*
tal than that represented by a rough
board cabin, a good shot gun and a
vicious bulldog, these things enabling
him to "nold down" hie "claim" until
under the law he had acquired title to
tne bounty of nature.
There la no auoh thing as free compe
tition now, co the illustrations imagined
by your communicant, of.lts failure, are
not admissible. The competition we
are having ie like his view of the single
tax—it is one sided. It lb keen compe
tition between the users of natural op
portunities for the privilege of access to
them, and the only people who benefit
by it are tbe alleged owners. If here
the wages of labor and capital are
loweat, land ia higheat in value. There
can be no free competition until
the earth Is open to all upon
the plane of equality. Thi» inherent
right the single tax wonld restore to
men. Then capital would be divested »
of any improper advantage it now pos
sesses; bsing deprived of tbe privilege
of land Investment, where it oan rest In
idleness while the industry and enter*
prise of the masses enhanoe the land
values, it would be compelled to enter
productive enterprises and thus perform
its natural function —produce more oap
ital. Capitalist would compete with
i capitalist, as labor now competes with
| labor. The man with capital could not
| dictate terms to the man without,
I because the same source of the
j former would be open to the
latter. There would be competition
i among millionaires as well aa among
paupers, and whenever any one of either
class desired tbe exclusive use of a lot, a
farm, a mine or a railroad right of way
it would not be tbe bnsiness of the state
to inquire how much or how little he
! might be wortb, but to exaot the full
rental value of tbe special privilege be
desired, ss it would be fixed by compe
tition or appraieement, and thus secure
to the people at large what belongs to
them, and leave to the worker, be be
capitalist or laborer, whatever hia skill
and his toil may earn.

The Misses Morton, daughters of ox-
Vice-President and Governor-elect
Morton, are all pictures of health, and
are fond of outdoor sport, especially'
Edith and Helen, the two eldest, wbo
are enthusiastic horsewomen.
Tbe amount of time these young ladies
bave spent abroad and m traveling,
generally speaaiug, has made them
broad-minded and interesting to a
degree which makes tbem obarm
ing convnrsationaiists.
As far as education is ooncerned the
Misses Morton have undoubtedly bad
every advantage that money and de
voted parents could procure. They all
speak French as well as they do Eng
lish, and Mian Edith is also a German
-scholar of ability. In fact, she is con
sidered the student of the family.
Mies Helen, and, in fact, nil of tbs
children, aro unusually proficieut in art,
literature and music, to which they are
devoted. In fact, they are ao much
taken up with their studies and amuse
ments at home that Bociety has seen
but little of them, and as yet tbere bas
been but little or no talk about tbe old
est ones in connection with a matrimo
nial venture.
