Senator Blackburn's fall is a just retribution for his past deeds as a
political boss among the Kentucky Democracy. His revolt against the
Beckham machine brought his downfall and during his leisure he can pon
der over the words of Cardinal Wolsey:
"Had I but served my God with half the zeal
I served my king, he would not in mine age
Have left me naked to mine enemies."
Senator Blackburn urged the Gobelites to make the contest that plun
ged Kentucky into the shame and disorder of 1899 He advised the fraud
that overthrew the election in that year and that brought so much unen
viable notoriety to the state of Kentucky. He was one of the prime fac
tors in unseating the officers elected by a majority of the people and in
causing them to be imprisoned, and exiled from their homes and friends.
Retribution is slow but it comes surely and often relentlessly, es
pecially to the selfish politician, and Senator Blackburn is enrolled in
this class.
Happy is the individuaul who is able to see good in everything that
happens. We read in an exchange of an old politician who thinks the pro
ceedings of the Illinois state convention will be an advantage to' the lie
publicans in that state. He predicts that all the Republicans will vote at
the forthcoming election, whereas if Yates or Deneen had been nominated
by acclamation, some of the Republicans would not have taken any inter
set in the campaign and might not even have voted next fall. This is a
new kind of political philosophy and will have much consolation in it for
the Democracy at this stage of their political game.
Mr. Gruelle, the Sentinel's cartoonist, is not popularizing the Demo
cratic organ by the cartoons he is drawing for that paper. Decent people
in both parties know the genuine ch'iraeter and statesmanship of the two
gentlemen he attempts to caricature. Mr. Davenport succeeded once in
lampooning the late Senator Hanna but had decency enough afterward to
be sorry and made amends as well was possible but Mr. Gruelle is not
to be classed with such men as Davenport. Gruelle is a cad.
Governor Pennvpaeker is to be commended for the appointment of
Attorney General Knox to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy
caused by the death of Senator Quay. The Pennsylvania politicians had
another Mute but the governor smashed it without even consulting them.
Jus! forty years ago, George B. MeC'Iellan was a candidate for the presi
dency but was defeated by Abraham Lincoln. There is a probability that
the son of Gen. MeClellan will be the Democratic nominee of the St. Louis
convention and Avill be defeated by President Theodore Roosevelt.
Governor Yates is demanding the immediate resignation of all his ap
pointees, v,ho, in an' way, opposed his renommination. The resignations
are said not to be coming in very fast. They seem to prefer to leave the of
fices by the ax method.
Governor Durbin is right when he said, "because our nation stands
for peace and friendly relations with all the world, it is fitting that the
American people should lead in the movement for international arbitra
tion." Because a bull fight did not materialize at St. Louis, a mob burned
the amphitheatre. Will there be any mob violence if the St. Louis conven
tion fails to a ree on a candidate.?
Tt seems to be a mistake about the owners of Chicago flats refusing

Careful experiments have shown

the end of the first second from start

is going at the rate of sixty-four feet

"Oh, I beg your pardon!" she gasped
as the ear, jerking over new sinuosities
of track perpetrated by the repairs,

and the total wreck of his paper; then
he arose hastily.
"Take my seat," lie said courteously,
with hat alift and the faintest twinkle
In his eyes. "You will hud it more
comfortable if I don't."
The ambiguous words sounded un
gracious to the girl's first confused
thought, and she hesitated. lint one
glance into the frankly admiring eyes
and another repair serpentine decided
her. She sank with more haste than
grace into the proffered seat, while her
preserver stooped to recover her
dropped purse, handkerchief and other
scattered properties.
She rewarded him with smiling
thanks, then turned her anxious atten
tion to the moving panorama of rain
deluged streets outside. The problem
in economics as to how she should
reach her home, two long cross town
blocks from the car line, innocent as
she was of umbrella or rubbers, began
to absorb her mind.
She only vouchsafed one brilliant,
perplexed glance upward at the fellow
passenger who for her sweet sake was
submitting himself to the modern in
quisition of 'hanging by a strap tiil
Iut in that instant of wireless teleg
raphy he perceived her thought an i
resolved accordingly. So he rode on
past his club block after block till his
fair vis-a-vis, having made up her
mind to run if not for her own life for
that of her new lace hat. signaled the
conductor and got off the car.
(Jrasping the voluminous tin fiery of
her silken skirts in both hands, she
poised for 1'ight. when a deep voice ad
dressed her in an extremely respectful
"We seem to be going the same way,
and you have no umbrella. Won't you
share mine?"
Fragments of Maria's elder sisterly
counsels regarding strict propriety
floated through her mind as she hesi
tated. But the man was evidently a
gentleman, and besides there was the
pouring rain, and her new hat would
be ruined, not to mention this her very
first long gown.
She put her little hand on his offered
arm as trustingly as the child she was.
and they set forth.
In that short walk lie made himself
deferentially agreeable, and she, who
had been shut in from all contaminat
ing male society by a careful sister of
forty, her only guardian, entered into
this highly improper escapade with all
the guilty joy of a young filly just bro
ken out of its stall into forbidden pas
tures. She was so naive, yet daringly win
some, her soft, long lashed gray eyes
were so innocent, yet so mischievous,
that it was small wonder that staid
.Mr. Harry Bewley, secretary to a high
ly respectable millionaire downtown,
promptly lost his. big, impulsive. Irish
American heart and, what was worse,
his handsome head.
For as they ascended the brownstone
steps of the old mansion and lie real
ized that he might never see her again
in this great wilderness of New York
he rashly begged her to let him call
and call ome time soon.
The girl was frightened at what she
had drawn upon herself. His brown
eyes were desperately pleading as he
closed the umbrella and stood beside
her under the columned shelter of the
entrance way.
"Oh. please go away." she implored
him. glancing apprehensively about
and hurriedly fitting her key to the
lock. "Some one, perhaps Sister Maria,
might see you."
"Not till you tell me when I may see
you again. I must. Life will never be
the same again. Here." he hastily
thrust a card into her hand and held it
there, "I am with Pronson & Co., Ca
nal street. Any one there can tell you
that I am not an adventurer nor"
"Very well." she interrupted in ter
ror, hearing steps inside. "Come next
Wednesday evening. Ask for Miss An
oline Dwight."
She opened the door and was gone
from his eager sight.
During the next week Mr. Harry
Hewley's days and nights were a fer
ment of flitting, gray eyed visions in
blue flounces aitd adorable lace hats.
Anoline! What a beautiful name it
When Wednesday evening came nt
last he made a dart for the door of
the oflice promptly at C. something
he had never done before and which
astonished his employer beyond meas
ure. Tlr!t wealthy gentleman had laid
the foundation of his millions by walk
ing to save car fare and added pi them
by underpaying and overworking all
the men in his employ.
P.ut tonight his secretary slipped rnt
and away from the usual hour's work
overtime and hurried to his Hub. whore
he spent fifteen hasty minutes jit his
dinner and an hour and three-quarlers
at Ins toilet.
Appareled at last to suit his fas
tidious taste, he sallied forth to a Mad
ison avenue car. Arriving at tlie bouse
whose fair dweller had hanuted Ids
dreams, he rang fh bell and waited,
with his heart thnnipip.g so loud under
his stiff dros: shift that he wondered
if she could hear U in tr.at second floor
front room she had told him wasJher
and which he had watched every even
ing for a. week in hope of, seeing even
ner shadow.
The t'.oor was opened by a trim maid.
"Io is Miss Anoline Dwight at
honi;' he str.ujinered in his, excite
ineut fumbling in his eardyf!se'.k
The maid stared and then glglodiT
but in a moment straightened her de
portment to' its usual dignity.
"Yes, sir; I guess she's downstairs,"
she remarked; then glancing doubt
fully at the bit of pastboard, "Shall I
take this to 'er'r" And the giggle
threatened to break bounds again.
"Certainly." responded Mr. I.ewley
in his most lofty manner, though he
reddened visibly. What the deuce ailed
the girl '! he wondered. Probably Miss
Dwight was at dinner. He hoped he
had not come too early. He anxious
ly consulted his watch. Nine o'clock
was not so late. A burst of laughter
from below, whither the servant had
repaired, startled his embarrassment
anew, and the words "Plug hat, too,"
floated up to him.
When she came back she was at no
pains to conceal her mirth. "Jos' step
this way, sir," she giggled. And he
followed her, much perturbed, to the
"GenTman to see Miss Dwight," she
announced loudly, opening the kitchen
door with a flourish and abruptly with
drew to a back room, whence muffled
explosions of mirth issued at inter
vals. "Yo' wan' see me, sub?" A huge
black bulk in turban and white apron
waddled toward him. "I's Miss Aner

On confronting the African appari
tion Mr. Bewley stared, opened his
mouth to speak, then fled. When he
emerged, wrathful, wretched, disap
pointed anfl humiliated, lie went back
to the club and called himself all the
unpleasant names he could think of.
He arose next morning with the lark
or what corresponds to it in the city,
the milk wagons and delighted his
employer by being first at the office:
also for several mornings thereafter.
But a reward other than oflicial ap
provalcold comfort though it was
awaited him a few days later, in the
form of a dainty blue note sealed with
white wax. It was from Sister Maria,
as follows:
My Dear Mr. Bewley Through a chance
remark of one of the servants today 1 was
led to question my sister N'ell concerning
a hoax she very unjustly played upon you
the other evening'.
Nell is very young and inexperienced,
and I have tried to be father and mother
both to the orphan child. So I write now
to ask your partlun for her impropriety
and later rudeness to you.
Your desire for further acquaintance, if
you still cherish such, may possibly be
furthered if you can find a mi'iual friend
through whom to receive the usual formal
ities of an introduction. 1 Lies' to remain

Harry groaned in despair as be read.
How could he ever hope among tiTe
several millions who inhabited the is
land of Manhattan to find one who
knew Mis Noll Broster. The prover
bial needle in the haystack was an
easy search as compared to this.
But a tiny penciled word at the bot
tom of the page caught his eye:
He turned the page and with it turn
ed a new and joyful leaf in his life,
for it held all the sweetness of love's
young dream. This is what he read:
P. S. Sister g-'ive me this to mail. She
has probably forgotten to say that I was
a roommate at boarding school of your
Mr. Uron.von's niece and ward Mabel.
You go there every Saturday to audit hia

IIott Jerry Kept Hist 1'romine.
In a year uf bad crops and great dis
tress some of the tenants of my great
grandfather. Cumhleton, like many of
their neighbors, took to running away
with stock and crops, leaving empty
lands for their landlords.
Gumbleton begged one of his tenants,
in whom he had some, though perhaps
not much, confidence, not to follow such
an evil example. "You will solemnly
promise tae. Jeri-," said he, "that at
any rate you will not go without giv
ing me warning." Jerry solemnly
One bleak and stormy winter night
Gumbleton, while retiring to bed about
midnight, was startled by the noise of
gravel flung at his windows. He look
ed out into the darkness and called,
"Who is there?"
"It's Jerry Hagarty, yer honor,"
shouted a voice through the storm.
"Oh, Jerry, is that yourself? What
business have you on such a night,
"Just to keep my promise of giving
warning to your honor. I said, you
know, I wouldn't run away without
letting your honor know of it. I am
running away now. Good night to
your honor and goodby."
So Jerry ran away, stock, crops and
all being also en route. Gael.
ot i Canary Comedian.
There had been a business transac
tion between Mr. Finch and a friend
regarding a canary.
When Mr. Finch became the proud
possessor of the little yellow creature
he had not unreasonably expected it to
burst into song at intervals.
But nature has not been so kind to
feminine canaries as to the sterner sex,
and, iu spite of every encouragement,
birdie refused to carol.
Therefore Mr. Finch was angry with
his bird fancying friend.
"That's a nice sort of canary you
sold me!' he said.
"Why. what's wrong with it?"
"It won't sing."
"What does it do. then?"
"It docs nothing but hop about the
cage from morning till night."
"Well, old chap, be reasonable. You
surely didn't expect a bird that would
sing and dance too?"

Richmond Showed That They Had
Little Practice Discounting
Score Game Good.
Hank fielding and a multiplicity of
errors that weir the result of poor
practice and little of it, gave the
Matthews the game yesterday after j
it looked as though Kichmond stood j
a good chance to win. The game, how- .
ever, was considered by all to be a
good one in a measure, the chief draw
back being the losing of the game by
Richmond. The crowd was quite a ;
large one and all were out for a good 1
ball game.
The game started out with a vim,
and up to the fifth inning the contest
was close and exciting. The Mat
thews played hard for the crowd was
with Kichmond from the strat, which,
did a good deal toward helping the
local boys. About the fifth inning,
however, things began to grow dark,
and the cirors pild up fast. Second
and center were two weak points, but
the entire field was not at its best, by
any means, and the inevitable result
followed. Score 7 to 3.

The State Tax Law.
The Lafayette Journal takes Mr.
A. G. Smith to task for some things
he said about the present tax law and
debt paying in this state. It says:
"In trying to make a little Demo
cratic capital out of this legislation
Mr. Smith ignored the record, and
states what did not happen. The bill
for amending the tax law was in
charge of Senator Howard, of South
Bend, chairman of the senate finance
committee. It was considered by. that
committee and the committee of ways
and means from the house in joint ses
sion. There was not th slightest op
position to it by any of the Republican
members of either committee. There
was no politics in it, and it was be
lieved to be meritorious legislation by
Republicans and Dsmocrats. There
was no lobby about the l?g:slature
fighting it, and no opposition to it on
the floor of either house. It passed
end became a law, was upheld by the
courts and has been enforced by Re
publican administrations ever since.
It put more money into the treasury
than had ever been put there before,
and by wise and economical manage
ment of the state's business a surplus
was created with which ihe state's ob
ligations were greatly reduced.
It is just to the Democrats of the legis
lature of 1891 to say that they builded
better than they knew, but greater
credit is due to a party capable of th
honest and faithful enforcement of a
law, than to one that had merely
spread it upon the statute boo!:3."
It is said that whether a nrni erot
into the recent Parker convention or
not depended not so much unon his
credentials as upon whether he ware
a Parker tag or not.
