The Salvation Array, in Nashville, has made for itself an unsavory reputation. The army in Savannah is defunct. The South doesn’t take kindly to the bass drum in re igion. Says the Buffalo Courier of President Cleveland: “The hearts of the people are with him.” This is a fact which causes the Republicans to feel a weakness al out the knees. The Ixjndon rimes published an editorial on k>ueen Victoria's jubilee which was over eleven columns long. Englishmen, doubt less, rejoiced that they were not compelled to read it. Gen. Boulanger’s march—the musical march—is all the rage in this country just now. The French would be pleased with Gen. Boulanger’s march military —against the Germans. The report that Henry Stanley' has been kill s! in Africa is discredited by the King of Belgium. Stanley has several times read his own obituary, and it is not improbable that V- may do so again. The failure of inanv of the recent weather propheci-s to materialize suggests that the signal service men in Washington have turned over their work to apprentices until kje heated term is over.

Mr. Carlisle, who has been tw ice S]ieaker I of tho House, and who will be elected to I tliat position again when Congress assent hies, has furnished the Herald a very inter esting talk on political matters. He is one of tho ablest of the Democratic leaders, and what he su\> about public matters is worth careful attention. He tielieves, of course, 1 that Mr. Cleveland will be renominated and elected, and he think.- that the Demo cratic party would make a grave mistake if it si. slid nominate any other candidate. The success of Mr. Cleveland’s administra tion is conceded even by his political ene mies. and nothing proves more conclusively that the Republicans realize their inability to prevent his re-election than tho weak way in which their newspapers criticise him. Mr. Carlisle does not feel sure that Sir. Blaine will be the Republican candidate. He is satisfied that Mr. Blaine can have the nomination if lie wants it, hut i- inclin-xl to think that he sees only defeat for the Re publican candidate, and is not, therefore, anxious to have another contest with Mr. Cleveland. Mr. Carlisle says that tho issues of the next national contest will depend to some extent upon the candidates. The Republi cans now seem disposed to push sectional questions to the front, but in view of the growing disposition at tho North to cease waving the “bloody shirt” and the indiffer ence of the .South to such questions, they may conclude not to give them a great deal prominence. It is certain that the tariff will be a great issue unless the present Congress reduces the revenues to the extent of stopping the accu mulation of a surplus in the treasury. Mr. Carlisle recognizes the responsibility which rests upon the Democratic party in this matter, and is extremely anxious that the party shall net harmoniously with regard to it. He is willing that concessions shall be made, but is not willing that the party shall sacrifice its principles in order to satisfy a small but, so far as the as the tnriff question is concerned, a very influential faction. He is in favor of a caucus of the Democratic members as soon as Congress meets, which shall agree upon a measure for reducing the revenues. Unless the minori ty submits to the will of the majority of the caucus it is probable there will bo no tax reducing legislation next winter Mr. Car lisle admits that lie has notieed some things in the public prints lately which make him doubtful of un agreement lieing reached by the Democrats on revenue questions. Mr. Carlisle does not think the Labor party will amount to much. It can hurt the Democratic party nowhere except in New York city, and even there the chances arc that it will draw proportionately as much from the Republican as the Dem ocratic party. The Labor party has nothing to build on, and, hence, it is not probable that it will reach such proportions as to make it formidable to the Democratic, or even the Republican, party. The Volunteer and Thi3tle. Interest in the international contest for the America’s cup will continue to grow until the contest is ended. The Thistle, which will represent the English yachtsmen is probably on her way to this country. She is a splendid yacht, and in the recent races in England easily proved herself superior to any of the other English yachts. She was especially designed and built to capture the America's cup, and her owners feel confi dent of victory. It is not certain which of the American yachts will defend the cup. That will have to bo determined by trial contests, which, doubtless, will take place some time next month. The new yacht Volunteer is the favorite at present. She was built bv Gen. Paine forthc purpose of meeting the Thistle, and the little sailing she has dona has given satisfaction. She will, however, he tested in trial races with the Mayflower, Atlantic, Puritan and Priscilla, and while it is not probable it is possible that one of them may prove to be superior to hor. Her designer, Mr. Burgess, thinks that she can heat the Mayflower in a race of fifty miles fully twelve minutes. There is naturally a very general desire for an early race between her and the Mayflower. Vessels like the Volunteer nnd Thistle are not likely' to become popular for pleas ure yachts. They are mere racing machines The cost of handling them is very groat on account of the amount of canvass which they carry. The Priscilla is of the same class of yachts ns the Volunteer and Thistle; and it is said that it requires thirty-five men to haul in her main sheet when a stiff breeze is blowing. The Thistle has a crow of forty, and this number is not too great. When accommodations are provided for so large h crew it is evident that not much room is left for th owner and his guests. The Thistle and the Volunteer, however are not built for pleasure boats but to grat ify national pride. The pride of either this country or England, however, must suffer quite a severe blow in September, and t here is a very hopeful feeling on this side of the water that it will not be the pride of this country. Just before Mr. Blaine departed for Eu rope he said to a friend: “I doubt if I shall have as good a time as Garfield and I did when visiting the old houses anti country seats. We got to se> them all iu the most thorough maimer by simply ‘tipping’ the servants and walking in at the back door.” It is gener ally understood that Mr. Blaine hopes to re turn to this country by the back door—Nan Francisco—and that lie expects to be met with the Republican nomination for the Presidency. A back door candidate will be cosily defeated by the Democrats, Why arc tho Republican newspapers of Chicago so sileut til suit the decision of the projectors of the Interstate Drill in that city to exclude negro military companies? When certain white companies refused to march behind negro companies at the Washington drill the same papers were wild with rage. To be consistent they should forthwith nbuso tho projectors of the Chi cago drill. Gen. Phil. Sheridan seems not to attach much importance to his Presidential liootn. In New York, a few days ago, somebody asked him tho condition of his Ikman, lie replied: “I must reply to you as 1 did to n reporter out West. I told him Kelly would lie around soon. ‘Who is Kelly,’ he asked. ‘Why he's u fool-killer,’ said 1. ‘You catch on, do you.’ Wall goodby.” At New Haven, Corn., a labor agitator named Horatio H. Line, lias Iks'ii sentenced to six months’ imprisonment in jail tor not supporting his children. Lane is like many others of 1“S ilk.

THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY, JULY 26, 1887. An Untruthful Witness. Cnpt. A. S. Carpenter, of Illinois, has been visiting the South. What Cnpt. Carpenter's claim to 'listinction is based upon is not known, but the New York Tribune opens its columns to him and ponnits him to dis play his hatred of the Southern people. Capt. Carpenter declares that he has been ‘‘tender-mouthed” al out the South for four or five years. He thought it av.rs time to stop the bloody-shirt cry. While in Texn-, however, he claims to have heard enough talk among Southern p.-opie to convince him that the old spirit of the Confederacy is us much alive to-day as when Fort Sumter was fired on. Tho Southern people are not asserting thnt they will fight, lmt they in tend to accomplish Their aims, nevertheless. Warming to the subject, Capt. Carpenter says: “One fellow said to me at the hotel where I was stopping in Galveston that if Presi dent Cleveland would stand by his order the people of the South would go up to Wash ington and take the flags whether or not there was opposition from the North. You scratch a genuine Southern man on the Kick on the subject of secession and he is as much of a secessionist to-day as he ever was. I have come home from there thor oughly determined to wave the bloody shirt and denounce Southern methods and views until all the secession is trounced out of these fellows in one way or another. It is they who flaunt the bloody shirt, and not the people of the North.” It is fortunate that in almost every part of the South there are Northern men who have for a considerable period of time been living side by side with the people out of whom Capt. Carpenter has undertaken to trounce secession views. These men are credible witnesses, and many of them have repeatedly borne testimony to the faet that the Southern people are as anxious to re main in the Union as the Northern people are, and are as loyal to the government. Cnpt. Carpenter has manufactured his state ment out of the whole cloth or has 1 icon dreadfully guyed. The Southern people do not desire to accomplish what the Con federacy undertook, but they do desire peace, and also desire honest government, like that which the present administration is giving the country. This man Cnpt. Car penter claims to have met in a Galveston hotel, doubtless saw that the Captain was hunting for bloody shirt material and con cluded to furnish him some. In this connection it is well to say that it is strange Capt. Carpenter did not mention that man's name. As far as the captured flags are concerned it is know'n to the coun try that the Southern people did not ask their return, and it is also known that the only feeling excited among the Southern people by the insane talk of Gen. Fairchild and his companions was one of amusement, tinged, perhaps, with contempt. To say that the Southern people flaunt the bloody shirt is the veriest nonsense. Senator Sher man and a few others of his party are en gaged in that foolish business, and they are actuated by just the feeling that animates Capt. Carpenter. Capt. Carpenter will not injure the South. During the last few years the people of the South and those of the North have been drawn close together by business interests. In this way they have become known to each other, nnd whatever the differences that may have been lietween them in the past, they now know that none exist except in the imaginations of such fellows as Capt. Carpenter. Local Bills. The members continue to introduce hills into the Legislature. Do they expect to have them acted upon f There are at pres ent enough bills pending to keep the legis lature busy until Christmas. Of course, every member must introduce all the hills his constituents sent! to him, and he must do all he can to hove them passed. Indeed, these little local hills occupy more time than the general ones which affect the interest of the whole State. If the local bills are not attended to the members are certain to be pretty harshly criticised by their constitu ents, anil to have their chances of a re-elec tion damaged, if not destroyed. The Morn ing News has urged, time and again, the necessity for passing some general laws au thorizing City Councils and County Com missioners to do a great many of the things which the Legislature is now required to do. Is there not some member of the Legisla ture able enough, and who has time enough, to frame a few such laws? If there is and he will undertake the work ho will make himself a name that will have a place in the history of the State. In a recent interview Gen. Ben F. Butler spoke freely and in complimentary terms of Mr. Blaine. He even went so far as to say: ‘‘l have no hesitancy in saying that the newspapers seem to presage his nomination in 1 HK.H,” When asked, “What do you think of Mr. Cleveland?” Gen. Butler replied: “I would prefer to talk about this house and the delights of summering in Maine and on the coast.’’ Considering how thoroughly Gen. Butler was defeated by President Cleveland in !884 the former’s silence about the latter is not strange. Feeling—especially the feeling of disappointment—is frequently too deep for words. Doubtless, if Gen. But ler had been pressed for his opinion of Presi dent Cleveland he would have wept. A soldier named Kellett was found on his knees upon the front portico of the White House the other day and was arrested and lodged in the police barracks. It was at first thought that he had designs upon the life of the President, but it soon developed that ho had been thrown by John Barley corn. A drunken soldier is a sorry sight, especially when he parades his disgrace at such a place as the official residence of the President, The army officers in Washing ton ought to take better care of tho handful of men they are required to command. Col. W. P. Canaday, Sergeant-at Arms of the United States Senate, is makiug himself very prominent as a Republican striker. He has a very wide mouth, and when he begins to talk he doesn’t know whon to stop. Col. (’amitluy’s retirement is one of the blessings for which the country will be extremely grateful one of these days. The Baltimore American sometimes ex presses itself in a way that cannot be misun derstood. For instance, nobody will deuy the force of tho following brilliant utterance: “If we are to have no rain for forty days it is quite likely that we will have a dry spoil. Nothing produces a dry sjmall so quickly as tho continuisl absence of rain.” Kven at the summer resorts temperance is gaining ground. A Saratoga hotel keeper says: “There was a time wheu the hotel guest who didn't Imvty a l. ittlo of wine be fore him was scarcely v be found. Now I the man who orders wl -e with his dinner I fuels himself coutpii jn'is. CURRENT COMMENT. They Should Not Exchange. From the New York Herald (Ind.) V.V advise the Republicans not to exchange Blaine for Sherman. They would too closely resemble the Hartford woman who, after living awhile with her second husband, remarked that she noticed very little difference lietween the two hardly enough to pay her for getting mar ried again. * Undemocr&tic and Dangerous. From the Missouri Republican (Dew.) The “National Veterans" are organizing in lowa on a platform of opposition to sectional ism and pauper (tensions It is an excellent platform, but th* Democratic party is the best organization to enforce it. Veteran associations in politics are undemocratic and dangerous, and experience has shown repeatedly tliat they can not be kept out of politics. Mr. Randall’s Earnest Letter. From the Fasten Globe i Dem .) Mr. Randall's earnest letter requesting Mr. Harvey's appointment is very' interesting. It reveals this distinguished Democrat, who bears the middle name of Jackson, in the odd attitude of joining with Republicans in urging a Repub lican office-seeker on the Iksinocratic adminis tration. It is too bad. In truth, the sight is enough to make the New York Sun's ofllee cat weep. Significance in the Invitations. From the New York Evening Font i Ind.) There is no little significance in these invita tions to visit them which an pouring in upon the President from cities all over the West, in which leading Republicans, like ex-Congress man Washburn of Minneapolis, for example, take an active part. They show that ex Senator Thurman is right in his opinion that Mr. Cieve hind is popular with the people i>ecause of "the man's undoubted honesty and his undoubted courage." ’ BRIGHT BITS.

CHILDREN REARED BY WOLVES. A Olance at Some ot che Remarkable Stories of This Sort. One of the most remarkable of wolf children, says a writer in Chambers' Journal, is a boy who in his 3d year was carried off by a wolf while his parents were at work in the fields, and who was recovered six years afterward as he was going down to the river to drink with the old wolf and her young ones. A mole and a soar on his left arm led to his identification. He became in some degree tamed, but he never learned to speak. He refused to wear clothes. He walked on all fours and preferred raw m> ;t and carrion to any other kind of food. Frogs w hich the village* children caught and threw to him he devoured with great avidity. At night he would often run off into the woods, and on such occasions his parents had great difficulty in recovering him. It is curious how closely some Indian stories of “wolf children'” agree in their general features, and even in some of their details. The manner in which the capture of these children is effected is, to say the least, suspicious: the constant recurrence of the wolf going to the river to drink gives that part of the story a somewhat mythical tinge. A glance at the kindred cases recorded by European writers reveals a striking resemblance to these Indian stories. In Wilhelm Dilieh’s Hessian Chronicle, purporting to be a truthful narrative of the events which happened during the author's life-time, we are told that in the year 1341 some hunters found a boy among a pack of wolves. Diltch does not say whether he saw the child with his own eyes, but he de scribes him as walking on all fours, shrinking at the approach of strangers, and crouching under tables and benches and refusing all cooked fi h id A Hanoverian writer of the so vent A* nth cen tury relates that in 1(561 two children were dis covered in the company of bears in the forest near the Polish town of Grodno. One of them escaped, together with the bears, but the other, who was a boy of about S or 0 years of age, was taken to Warsaw, and there presented to the King, John Oasimir, The King for some time kept him about his court, had him christened, and then turned him over to Peter Opalinski. one of his chamberlains, who attempted to utilize him as a scullion in the royal kitchen. In a long Latin poem, written by some scholar at tached to the Polish court, a complete history of the wretched lad is given from his first arri val at Warsaw till his final escape into the woods. Like all his companions in mis fortune he is represented as moving nl>out on all fours in a heavy lumbering way. He would eat anything, but was particularly partial to raw meat, ripe fruit,honey and sugar. It was also remarked that when lie walked erect, as he sometimes would do, his general resemblance to a bear became more striking than ever. Among other more or less genuine cases of this kind we may mention the “wild boy.” who bellowed like an ox. and who some time ago created a great sensation at Bamberg iu Ger many; the girl who was captured at Chalons In 1781. and of whom it was said that she had been living in the river Marne like a fish, and the wretched creature in whom Lord Monboddo thought he had discovered a specimen of primi tive man.

A dispatch from Louisville, Ky., to the New York Herald says: William Brown and Mary Sanders, a rustic couple from Nelson county, were married in Jeffersonville this morning. The groom was about thirty and the bride six teen. Thev had never been so far from home, before, ami their marriage hamiened in a curious manner. Each had intended to e!■:'• with an other person, and it was an accident that caused their wedding. The groom's brother Sam was the sweetheart of .Mary Sunders, and her sister Sailie was engaged to William. The parents of the girls objected to the young men and the quartette prepared to elope. Last Wednesday evening Mary and Sailie went over to a neigh bor's and a little while later the young men called for them in bug gies. To avoid suspicion the girls were exchanged. Mary going with William and her sister with Sam, and in this fashion they started for the nearest railroad station, which was twelve miles distant. Mr. Sanders was told of their departure bv the neighbors, and, mount ing a horse, started in pursuit. About two miles from the station he overhauled them, and as ihey refused to stop seized the horse of the rear buggy, which contained Sailie and Sam Brown. The others put the whip to their horse and reached the station just as the M ain pulled in. They then thought it not worth while to turn back, and decided to go ahead and get married themselves. They arrived in Louisville last night, and this morning went to Jeffersonville and were limb'd. They told their story very frankly, and when Brown was asked if there would not be trouble he remarked: “No, 1 guess not. Both girls are nearly alike, though I never went to see this one. I'll make it all right with Sam when I get home." An Empress’ Bonnets. FVom the Lady's World. The Empress Josephine once bought thirty eight bonnets in one month. We do not know at what number her mighty husband drew the line, but it is a fact that, having learned that she bad indulged herself with the acquisition of t his large number, he—when he one day went into the salon leading to her apartments and found in it Mile. Despaux, the milliner with a large pile of suspicious looking band boxes—was so indignant at the idea of his wife making fresti purchases that he flew into such a passion that everyone ran away, leaving him to decide whetlmr be would vent his rage on poor Josephine, who v. as a prisoner with her feet in a foot bath, or on the milliner herself. He did a little of both. He was so angry with Josephine that she was speechless with terror, and lie sent for Savory, Ins minister of police, and ordered him to am t Mile. Despaux. She was sent to La Force im mediate!, and, though her fear of Napoleon and horror of a night in prison made her ill. her fortune was probably made by this startling outbreak of imperial t-'inper. Next day nearly every one iu I’nris flocked to see her, hear her story and condole with her. She never coulJ have lucked custom after this. Whore They Were Born. From thx Sun Francisco Chronicle.

A sportive bull in Wayne. Neb., charged on the town lire engine while the machine was lit mg tested. The boys turned the hose on the bull's eye, and, after four successive charges, the animal retired to the field thoroughly cooled. A negro snake charmer in Little Rock was picking up a few dimes on the street the other day by swallowing a supke for public amuse ment. The serpent grew weary of the sport and put an end to the show by biting tho dar key severely on the cheek. Beach Hawley, 9 years old, and a voracious reader of cheap novels of the furious sort, started from his home in Bridgeport, Conn., on Tuesday for Africa, taking with him a loaded horse pistol, with which he began practicing when he gut as far as Newtown. An accidental discharge of the weapon lodged a ball in his head, causing what was regarded as a mortal wound. The Los Angeles Express says, apropos of the real estate craze, which eclipses everything else in Southern California, that in a religious meet ing the other day tho minister, in referring to the distribution of tracts and how they should be placed before the world of sin, asked: “Now, what shall we do with these tracts.'” Deacon Jones, who was half asleep, heard the remark and yelled: “Cut ’em up into lotsandplace ’em on the market 1" A church sociable and hugging bee at Elk Creek, Neb., broke up in a row recently.

An Altona newspaper publishes the interest ing intelligence that Alfred Bell, a son of King Beil of Cameroon, has been apprenticed to a carpenter of that town along with three other dusky Africans. The youth is lti years old and is said to be very intelligent, reading and writ ing fairly well and s|>eaking English and Ger man. The Altona carpenter had sent out an artisan to Cameroon to superintend the erection of the government building and prison which he had ’bu:lt in wood for the colony, and thus it was that King Bell got the desire to make a car penter out of his son, who is bound for four years. One of the strangest steamboat aggregations that ever plied the tipper Mississippi, passed up by LaCrosse at 10 o'clock Thursday forenoon. It was a combination of three government steamboats—the Gen. Barnard, Louise, and Stella—eighteen barges heavily loaded, and a dwelling house with all the modern appoiut ments except the front yard. The question is, among rivet-men, how they can get the thing through the narrow places where it requires good work to pass a single steamer. When asked whose house he hatl ('apt. Durham re plied that it was "President Cleveland’s country residence.” The curiosity attracted a large number of people to the levee. A pretty Nebraska widow, who had ensnared the affections of many respectable farmers living near Wyman, was recently ordered to leave the country by a band of “regulators," under the penalty of a coat of tar and feathers. Nothing daunted by the threat, the widow bought a double-barrel shotgun and awaited develop ments. When the regulators approached the house to carry out the threat, the sight of a loaded gun pointed from one of the windows deterred them, and one of the number, in ad miration of the woman's pluck, advanced under a flag of truce, proposed marriage, and was ac cepted oil the spiot. Then a parson was called in, the marriage was celebrated, and the night wound up with a round of festivities. The sisters of the conveut at Sinsinanea Mound, Wis.. have determined to sink an arte sian well. The mound is about 550 feet above the level of the Mississippi river, and it will probably be necessary to bore down to tho depth of 2,000 feet before a flow of water is reached. A little southwest of the mound there is an old diggings that was operated by a company from New York many years ago, and while the mine was lieing worked a body of water was discov ered through an opening. A boat was let down and men paddled around in all directions, and in the direction of the mound the water became deeper. The progress of the boat under the mound was stopped by a large shelving rock running down into tile water. Tilts lake is about 100 feet from the surface. The company suc ceeded in raising a good deal of mineral before operations were stopped by the water. With reference to the conviction and sen tence to death of the Pans murderer, Pranzini, a curious question has arisen concerning the disposal of the fortune of his principal victim. Mine. Kegnault, who possesses property to the amount of $150,000. had signed a will bequeath ing the w hole of it to Marie Gremeret, the little girl of her maid and lier own goddaughter. Now, if the murder of the child preceded that of Mine, llegnault, the will is thereby rendered null and void, and the property goes to the rela tives of the dead deini-mondaine. If. on the other hand, the latter was killed before the little girl, the newest relatives of the child inherit the whole of the estate. The only jierson who could have thrown any light on the subject is the murderer Pranzini. who, however, ahso lately denies any knowledge of the crime, and who, moreover, since his conviction and sen tence has lest all his civil rights and is incapaci tated froih tendering any legal evidence. The mechanical department of the East Ten nessee, Virginia and Georgia are experimenting w ith anew smoke-preventing device for locomo tives. They use table grates w ith diagonal slots or openings oue-haif by three inches, and thirty four such openings In each grate. The grate next to the fire-box door is made stationary, and a hack is cast upon it, which is slotted. The hack rtntnp-'r is kept shut and the front one open wlii'ii running. The air passes in over the back dead grate and gets partly heated before tvacliiug the tire, the supply by that opening being provided to make up for tho restricted supply that passes through the contracted grate openings. Tile arrangement works well as a smoke preventer and saves fuel, the narrow openings in the grates preventing the waste of roal that is usually caused by the tine coal fall ing into the ash-pan. When the grates are shaken, says the Courier-Journal, the drum ming sound that follows the shaking of grates with wide openings is not heard. T. C.
